TOWARD THIS END, SECRETARY CHAFEE AND I HAVE ESTABLISHED A PROGRAM WHEREBY TWO OFFICERS WILL BE SELECTED ANNUALLY TO SERVE IN THE IMMEDIATE OFFICES OF THE SECRETARY AND CNO IN A FELLOWSHIP CAPACITY. THE OFFICERS SELECTED, TO BE KNOWN AS THE SECNAV AND CNO FELLOW RESPECTIVELY, WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK CLOSELY WITH HIGH-LEVEL NAVY LEADERS, HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF ATTENDING POLICY DISCUSSIONS AND MEETINGS, AND WILL UNDERTAKE SELECTED PROJECTS BEARING ON NAVAL POLICY AND DOCTRINE.
