All hands should be aware of a renewed emphasis on accountability and individual responsibility (see ALNAV 150/87). At every NSG command, detachment and department, I expect a climate for accountability - an area where a positive attitude and atmosphere exist.

This means that we must have adequate resources to do our job; that everyone knows his/her responsibility; that all of our people are well trained; and that all hands know what to expect if they do a good job or what to expect if they don't or if they get into trouble. There must never be a perception that seniors adhere to one standard while juniors must adhere to another.

Everyone must know that COs/XOs/OICs/Dept Heads will be held as accountable as juniors. The proof of leadership will always be in how we take care of our people and how we accomplish our mission.
