LEADING THE WAY
Our mission is to launch Sun King aircrew, aircraft, and combat systems airborne from the sea to detect, decide, and communicate. We evaluate the combat effectiveness of every unit by reducing ambiguity and influencing the battle space through dynamic and adaptable direction from our aircraft.
To successfully accomplish this mission, I am asking each of us to follow these simple concepts:
Be Present, Be Critical, and Be Kind
Although seemingly simple, when executed expertly, these concepts have profound impact.
Be Present: Sun Kings are on-station, on-time, with mission capable systems, qualified, trained, and ready. Being present is as simple as showing up to work on-time, in the right uniform, with the right tools ready to work. It is showing up for the flight on-time with an effective plan, ready to fly, fight, lead, and win. Sun Kings are ready in peace and we must prevail in combat when our country needs us most. Millions of people worldwide depend on us to do our job well. Sun Kings make a difference.
Be Critical: Sun Kings are professionals who demand excellence. We hold ourselves and each other accountable. We look for every opportunity no matter how small to improve in everything we do. We take responsibility. We own our successes and our failures. Sun Kings have the courage and integrity to ask and answer hard questions that make us better. Sun King standard is 116%.
Be Kind: Sun Kings are kind to each other and our equipment. We treat each other with dignity and respect. Our squadron is where we want to come to work and contribute back to our community on a daily basis. We come from all over this amazing country and all over the world. We actively foster a culture to bring out our best every day. Our people, our aircraft, our tools, and our spaces are entrusted to us by the American people. Sun Kings are warrior patriots and good stewarts who superbly maintain these limited resources. Sun Kings do the right thing, all the time, every time.
Sun Kings are Naval Aviation. We "Lead the Way!"
