COMMANDING OFFICER PHILOSOPHY
______________________________________________________________________________________

1.  WE ARE WARFIGHTERS FIRST.  Every Wildcard must fully commit to our mission: the effective employment of MH-60S helicopters and MQ-8B Fire Scout UAVs in support of the Navy’s objectives.  We must be tactically and technically proficient, and ready to deploy at any time in support of combat operations.

 

2. WE DO THE RIGHT THING. We treat each other with dignity and respect.  We take personal responsibility for our actions.  We are dedicated to the Navy’s Core Values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment. We know our jobs; we comply with procedures.  We stand for what is right, and support all who share that conviction – always.

 

3. WE TAKE CARE OF OUR SAILORS.  Our Sailors are the executors of our mission – today, tomorrow, and for years to come.  Without trained, qualified, and motivated Wildcards, we will fail.  This requires discipline, training, compassion, mentorship, professionalism, and communication.

 

4. WE ARE A TEAM.  We are the premier squadron on the seawall.  We exceed expectations.  We hold ourselves to the highest of standards, and we achieve them!  We train our relief, and we care for our fellow Wildcards.  Only together do we succeed.

 

 

 

WILDCARDS NEVER FOLD!
