The Navy established the Combat Meritorious Advancement Program in April, which provides commanders the opportunity to advance junior enlisted Sailors who display uncommon valor and extraordinary leadership while engaged in, or in direct support of, combat operations.Good idea.
"Our nation and our Navy are at war; this program recognizes and rewards those that have excelled in combat, the crucible of leadership," said Vice Adm. Gerry Hoewing, Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP). "Most importantly, this recognition will come from the commanders who are directly engaged in taking the fight to the enemy in combat."
