Pacific Fleet Commander visits Navy Region Northwest

Adm Haney Visit

EVERETT, Wash. (NNS) — Adm. Cecil Haney, commander of U.S. Pacific Fleet, visited naval installations within Navy Region Northwest and its tenant commands, May 2-3.

Haney toured the bases, met with Sailors, spoke at the “Night Before” homecoming party for the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) and conducted several all hands calls.

During the all hands calls Haney discussed the mission of the Pacific Fleet and his current fleet priorities: warfighting readiness, purposeful forward presence, advancing alliances and partnerships, and valuing people and families. In addition to fielding questions from Sailors at the all hands calls regarding topics from the current budget cuts, enlisted retention board and Perform-to-Serve (PTS) programs, he also thanked Sailors and expressed his appreciation and gratitude for their service.

“I can’t thank you enough for volunteering to wear the Navy uniform and for your service,” said Haney. “No matter how many years you have served in our business, what you do for our country is amazing. I don’t take that for granted.”
