The Major Shore Commands
principal assistants and advisers to the CNO is the master chief petty officer of the Navy (MCPON). The Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy The office of the master chief petty officer of the  Navy  was  established  upon  a  recommendation derived  from  the  Secretary  of  the  Navy’s  task force on Navy/Marine Corps personnel retention in 1966. The function of the office was to provide a   direct,   unofficial   channel   of   communication between enlisted personnel and the senior policy level of the Department of the Navy. With a tour length   established   at   4   years,   the   office   was formally  established  1  March  1967. The  charter  of  the  master  chief  petty  officer of  the  Navy  outlines  the  specific  duties  of  the MCPON   as   follows: 1. The MCPON is assigned to the immediate Office  of  the  Chief  of  Naval  Operations. The  MCPON  serves  as  the  senior  enlisted representative of the Navy and acts as the primary enlisted  adviser  to  the  CNO.  The  MCPON  advises the  Chief  of  Naval  Personnel  in  all  matters pertaining  to  both  active-duty  and  retired  enlisted members and their dependents. 2. The MCPON serves in an advisory capacity on  various  boards  pertaining  to  enlisted  members, including: •  Board    of    Managers,    Navy    Relief Society •   Board  of  Administrators  of  the  Central Nonappropriated   Funds •  Board    of    Equal    Opportunity    for Women •   Rating  Review  Board •   Navy Wives Club of America (Liaison) •  Fleet Reserve Association (Liaison) •  Navy Resale System Advisory Board 3.  The  MCPON,  when  called  upon,  testifies before congressional committees and subcommit- tees. The MCPON also accompanies the Chief of Naval Operations and the Chief of Naval Person- nel  on  occasional  official  trips  and  the  Navy Inspector  General  on  selected  inspection  trips.  The MCPON also travels extensively throughout the fleet  and  serves  as  the  Navy  enlisted  representative of the Department of the Navy at special events, celebrations,  and  ceremonies. 4.  The  MCPON  makes  recommendations  to help develop effective leadership and training at all enlisted levels and to help attain high standards of  conduct  and  general  appearance  within  the enlisted community. The MCPON acts at all times to maintain and promote the chain of command and  its  associated  chain  of  communications, Further, the MCPON is concerned with existing or potential situations, procedures, and practices that   affect   the   use,   morale,   retention,   career enhancement,  human  goals  programs,  and  general well-being of the enlisted men and women of the Navy  and  their  dependents. The  MCPON  does  not  work  alone.  Assisted by a staff, the MCPON relies on the quality and experience  of  the  fleet,  force,  and  command master  chiefs.  With  their  solid  support,  the MCPON  carries  out  the  duties  of  the  office. THE  SHORE  ESTABLISHMENT To  list  and  describe  every  type  of  shore activity operated by the Navy is beyond the scope of   this   manual.   Primarily,   the   major   shore commands (fig. 11-5) are responsible for training, supplying,   maintaining,   and   supporting   the operating  forces.  They  accomplish  this  through the delivery of materials, services, and personnel to  the  operating  forces.  All  of  the  major  shore commands answer directly to the Chief of Naval Operations  in  carrying  out  their  missions. THE  OPERATING  FORCES The operating forces of the Navy are combat or   combat-support   oriented.   Combatant   and certain supporting forces are assigned under the commander  of  a  unified  or  specified  command. The  operating  forces  of  the  Navy  (fig.  11-6)  in- clude  the  following: 1.  The  Pacific  and  Atlantic  fleets,  including forces  and  commands  by  type  as  follows: a.  Fleet  Marine  Forces b.  Naval  Air  Forces c.  Naval  Surface  Forces d.  Submarine  Forces e.   Training   Commands 11-14
