|Day one (August 19) group of chief selectees|
|Day two (August 20) group of chief selectees|
In addition to learning about the history of the U.S. Navy and the role of the chief petty officer, there was a day long competition that pitted each command's selectees against each other. The competition included an old fashion close order drill skill contest held at Town Point Park, the best turned out guidepost, and a series of forty-five questions on Naval and chief petty officer history and heritage. Active duty chiefs served as judges and awarded points based on each command's selectees performance.
Vanguard,inc. donated two trophies (one awarded each day) for the command with the highest score. Each trophy had the words "Where Chiefs Go, Only Eagles Fly" engraved on it.
Thank you to all who volunteered their time to make this event a success and congratulations to all the selectees on your accomplishment!
