Joint Chiefs admiral to visit Crane

CRANE — For the first time in its history, a sitting Chief of Naval Operations and member of the Joint Chiefs will be visiting NSA Crane.

Admiral Jonathan W. Greenert, CNO, will be visiting Crane on Monday, according to a release from Sen. Dan Coats’ office.

Also joining Coats and Greenert will be Sen.-elect Joe Donnelly, Ninth District Rep. Todd Young and Indiana Lt. Gov-elect Sue Ellspermann.

Coats invited the admiral to the base when he testified before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense in March, according to the release.

“I am pleased Admiral Greenert has accepted my invitation to visit Crane so he can see firsthand the advanced work patriotic Hoosiers have done to harness the power of technology for our nation’s warfighters,” Coats said. “This will be the first time a Chief of Naval Operations has visited Crane, and I look forward to showing Admiral Greenert how this naval installation continues to support our warfighters in the focus areas of strategic missions, electronic warfare and special missions.”

In the naval chain of command, Greenert is the senior military officer in the Department of the Navy and a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The CNO is a four-star admiral and is responsible to the Secretary of the Navy for the command of the Navy.

NSA Crane is the third largest naval installation in the world and does approximately $2 billion in business. It is nearly 100 square miles large and hires 3,700 civilians and 1,700 contractors making it one of the largest employers in the state.

According to his official bio, Greenert is a native of Butler, Pa., and graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1975. He served as a line officer on several submarines before moving to fleet support and management.

He was named Chief of Naval Operations in 2011.
