FUNDRAISER FOR THE CPOSF ON BEHALF OF MCPON 7 & DDG-119
ONLY 300 PACKS WILL BE SOLD
U.S. Navy Guided Missile Destroyer USS Delbert D. Black Joins the Fleet
And what better way to commemorate this amazing event than with a "DDG 119 BLACK PACK" approved by CPOSF chairman and seventh Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Duane R. Bushey. Second of its kind but this time with more pizzazz and flare as we honor Del, his wife Ima, their legacy, and contributions to our community and the U.S. Navy.
The BLACK PACK includes:
- Custom T-Shirt
- Custom Hat
- Custom 4" Tall Challenge Coin
- Custom Neck/Keychain Lanyard
“This is the first ship to honor a senior enlisted leader in such a way for their contributions in this realm, and represents a significant milestone achievement that recognizes both the responsibility of the position to the Navy, as well the tremendous accountability to those enlisted Sailors we primarily provide advocacy for,” said MCPON Smith.
ABOUT THE CPO SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Where It All Began | In November 1994, the USS CHIEF (MCM14) was commissioned in honor of the dedicated service of the Chief Petty Officer of the United States Navy, as well as for the honored wartime service of her namesake, USS CHIEF (AM315), and she sails today as a testament to that tradition.
The planning and all subsequent activities leading up to the commissioning was all Chief Petty Officer evolution. One of the significant results of the event was the creation of the Chief Petty Officer Scholarship Fund (CPOSF). The fund came to fruition with the signing of the Charter of the Chief Petty Officer Scholarship Fund in January 1998 at the U.S. Navy's Senior Enlisted Academy (SEA) in Newport, Rhode Island.
