    The Master Chief Petty Officer's Role and Responsibilities
    Master Chief Petty Officers are the senior enlisted petty officers in the Unites States Navy. As such, MCPOs are vested with special command trust and confidence, extending to administrative and managerial functions involving enlisted personnel.

    Based upon your experience, proven performance, and technical knowledge necessary for advancement to the grade of MCPO, you will hold a senior enlisted position within your command. You will help to form and execute policy within your occupational field or across the full Navy spectrum.

    If you are selected to hold the position of Command Master Chief, you will serve as the senior enlisted adviser in setting command policies about the morale, use, and training of all enlisted personnel. As such, you will have direct access to the commanding officer.

    Additionally, as the command master chief you will be responsible for carrying out established command policy in specific areas as directed by the commanding officer and the executive officer. As the command master chief you will take precedence over all enlisted members within your command.
