  15. 15. March CSADD - AROUND OUR NAVY 2011 The Way Ahead As we look to the future of CSADD, we cannot forget the trueconcept of this program: junior Sailors leading other junior Sailors.During the course of the last year, I have visited several differentregions, and the initiatives and accomplishments junior Sailors havemade to our great Navy are remarkable. I ask that our junior Sailors be allowed to maintain thisprogram as designed. We risk losing so much if this initiativebecomes just another mandated Navy program that is required ratherthan voluntary, and taken out of the hands of the junior Sailor.Its important that we remember the concept of this great program,which is peer-to-peer mentorship and influence. It allows juniorSailors to lead within their own peer groups knowing they have thefull support and respect of senior Naval Leadership. Our Sailors prove everyday that they have the abilities tomake a difference in our organization. Part of this comes from thetrust and confidence we as senior leaders show them by giving themthe opportunity to shape and mold their own futures. The CSADD slogan, which is embedded in the ships wheel logo,states maintaining "our" course. The orders to the helm are there,and the junior Sailors have taken this program, embraced it, and aresteaming ahead to face challenges head on with a renewed spirit andsense of self accomplishment. This will no doubt bring a greaterpride and kindred spirit within our organization and strengthen ourability to meet our mission and continue to project our global forcefor good. Keep the press on and stay safe.~ CMDCM (AW/SW) D. Torchia/Naval Safety Center 15
