Episode #24. The 9th Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Jim Herdt and the USS Theodore Roosevelt.

In this Episode of the Hangardeck Podcast, the team interviews the 9th Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy, MCPON Jim Herdt. We discuss his time as the Command Master Chief or CMC of the Aircraft Carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71). This interview is by far our best work and we appreciate his stories and memories.

Jim Herdt is the CEO of Herdt Consulting, Inc. Jim transitioned from active duty in April 2002 with 35 years of active naval service. He served the last four years of his active service as the most senior enlisted member of the United States Navy. As such, his responsibilities included leading program and policy development for an enlisted force of over 400,000 personnel. Additionally, he served as a personal advisor to the Chief of Naval Operations, Secretary of the Navy, Secretary of Defense and U.S. Congress on all U.S. Navy personnel policies.

This is an awesome and inspiring conversation from MCPON Herdt and he takes a trip back in time to the early to mid 90s in the US Navy and on-board a Nimitz Class Carrier. Raging Rick, Fast Eddie and myself had a great time with Jim and we hope you continue to enjoy our stories and interviews.
