Between April 2012 - March 2013, the U.S. Navy Memorial was very proud to present the Year of the Chief. All of our exhibits were dedicated to group of men and women who, since April 1, 1893 have been tested, selected, and initiated as Chief Petty Officers. In 2017, the Navy Memorial inaugurated the Delbert D. Black National Chief's Mess, a permanent exhibit that tells the unique story and important role of the Navy Chief Petty Officer. We are proud to reintroduce the official challenge coin issued by the Navy Memorial during the Year of the Chief for a limited release. Order today while supplies last!
