Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida --. (NNS) June 14, 2006 -- Chief of Naval Personnel and Deputy Chief of Naval Operations (Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education) Vice Adm. John C. Harvey Jr. visited Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, Fla., June 7-8, conveying a message for every Sailor about the future of the Navy: change is coming, and each person in the organization has an important role to play in that change.

Harvey Jr. addresses all hands in the auditorium at Naval Aviation Schools Command onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola for the Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education Strategic Plan (MPT&E).

Harvey addressed a standing-room only-crowd June 8 at the NAS Pensacola theater. His message was focused on strategic planning for the future of the Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education (MPT&E) organization.

Harvey emphasized the MPT&E Strategic Plan is based upon two fundamental premises. The situation is dictated by the choices, not the circumstances, and certain aspects of the future are influenced by the choices made now.

“What worked five years ago will not work today,” Harvey said, referring to the landscape of shifting demographics and associated challenges, such as slow population growth, increasing private-sector job growth, diversification of the population and a lower propensity for joining the armed services.

“What worked for an aging 'baby boomer' won’t work for the 'millennial' coming into the Navy now,” he said. “Demographics is destiny.”

According to Harvey, part of the Navy’s strategic vision will include focusing on talent and targeted, competitive recruiting. Innovative personnel policies and compensation, as well as flexible career management, are just one piece of the roadmap for shaping tomorrow’s Navy.

According to Harvey, part of the MPT&E strategic vision will include focusing on talent and targeted, competitive recruiting. Innovative personnel policies and compensation, as well as flexible career management, are important pieces of the roadmap for shaping tomorrow's Navy.

While the MPT&E mission is to anticipate Navy war fighting needs, identify associated personnel capabilities and recruit, develop, manage and deploy those capabilities in an agile and cost-effective manner, that mission must compliment the Chief of Naval Operations' first two priorities, which are to sustain combat readiness and build a fleet for the future.

Gone are the Reagan-era plans for a 600-ship Navy with more than half a million active-duty Sailors, said Harvey. Today’s Navy will be much leaner, with hybrid Sailors who are cross-trained in two or more specialties. A 313-ship Navy with more than 4,000 aircraft and 340,000 Sailors (70,000 in Reserve) is the reality of fiscal 2007.

When asked about the status of Individual Augmentee (IA) assignments in the Global War on Terrorism, Harvey said, “Expect the IA demand to grow. We’re going to take those talents and skills and send them forward to the fight.”

He expressed how critical intelligence specialist, cryptographic technician and master-at-arms ratings are to the mission. “The Navy does certain things better than anyone else. As of today, we have about 4,000 active and 5,000 reserves (Sailors) on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan,” he said.

Notification time for orders is steadily increasing, Harvey noted. “We’re making progress. In May, there were 300 sets of orders issued, and they each had a 30-day heads up.”

Harvey also reminded Sailors how important the educational piece of the puzzle was to the success of the overall future of the Navy. “Education is a mandatory thing. It is not optional,” Harvey said.

The admiral noted the pending changes are out of necessity. “This is not a feel-good initiative. Strategic planning enables us to actively ‘create’ our future, rather than passively let it happen.”
