SUBJ/ASSUMPTION OF COMMAND
1. I HAVE RELIEVED VICE ADMIRAL BARRY MCCULLOUGH AS COMMANDER, U.S. FLEET CYBER COMMAND AND COMMANDER, U.S. TENTH FLEET. ADMIRAL MCCULLOUGH'S VISIONARY LEADERSHIP CHARTED A STRONG COURSE FOR THE NAVY IN THE CYBER DOMAIN. THROUGH HIS FORESIGHT AND LEADERSHIP, OUR CYBER WARFIGHTING MISSION HAS BECOME A REALITY AND OUR WARFIGHTING CAPABILITY AND CAPACITY IN THIS DOMAIN HAS EXPANDED SIGNIFICANTLY. AS VADM MCCULLOUGH COMPLETES THIRTY SIX YEARS OF SERVICE TO THE NATION AND OUR NAVY, HE DOES SO KNOWING THE NAVY SET THE STANDARD IN THE EMPLOYMENT OF CYBER FORCES AND THE INTEGRATION OF SIGINT, CRYPTOLOGY, NETWORKS, COMMUNICATIONS, SPACE, ELECTRONIC WARFARE AND INFORMATION OPERATIONS EFFECTS.
2. I ASSUME COMMAND ON THE EVE OF THE NAVY'S 236TH BIRTHDAY. SINCE ITS INCEPTION, THE U.S. NAVY HAS CONTINUALLY ADAPTED TO MEET NEW CHALLENGES. TODAY WE ARE FACED WITH GREAT CHALLENGES, BUT I ALSO BELIEVE THAT WE POSSESS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO TRANSFORM OUR FORCES TO EXPAND THE CAPABILITIES AND OPTIONS THAT COMMANDERS CAN DRAW ON IN THE CYBER DOMAIN.
3. WE ARE WARFIGHTERS WHO BRING UNIQUE CAPABILITIES TO THE FIGHT WITH ONE SINGLE FOCUS - ENSURING THAT THE JOINT AND NAVY TEAMMATES WE SUPPORT AROUND THE GLOBE - - AND THE EFFECTS WE GENERATE - ACHIEVE BETTER OPERATIONAL OUTCOMES AT THE TIME AND PLACE OF OUR CHOOSING.
4. MY GUIDANCE TO YOU IS SIMPLE. FOCUS ON MISSION AND PEOPLE. ENSURE WE ARE READY TODAY TO FIGHT AND WIN. TAKE OWNERSHIP IN THE TRANSFORMATION AHEAD. DRIVE CHANGE VICE BEING DRIVEN BY IT. LEAD AT EVERY LEVEL. PRIORITIZE TIME AND RESOURCES ON THAT WHICH GENERATES THE GREATEST IMPACT ON MISSION ACCOMPLISHMENT.
IDENTIFY SOLUTIONS EVEN AS YOU IDENTIFY PROBLEMS. VALUE COLLABORATION AND INNOVATION AND REMEMBER THAT OUR NAVY/MARINE CORPS AND JOINT TEAMMATES ARE POWERFUL PARTNERS.
5. I AM PROUD TO BE TAKING THE HELM OF THE NAVY'S NEWEST FLEET AND I LOOK FORWARD IN THE COMING MONTHS TO MEETING THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO ENSURE ITS SUCCESS. OUR PEOPLE ARE OUR GREATEST ADVANTAGE AND IT IS GREAT TO REJOIN THE FLEET AND OUR OUTSTANDING FORCE OF SAILORS, NAVY CIVILIANS, AND INDUSTRY PARTNERS. FINALLY, THE KEY TO OUR FUTURE SUCCESS WILL BE HONEST, OPEN AND ROBUST DIALOGUE. I PROMISE THAT IS WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE FROM ME AND I EXPECT NO LESS FROM EACH OF YOU.
6. FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD. IT MUST BE ALL-IN FOR EACH OF US! OUR ADVERSARIES ARE NOT RESTING - NOR WILL WE. VADM ROGERS SENDS.
