Pacific Fleet Commander Launches Blog, Recaps PP08

Friday, September 19, 2008

Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet, kicked off the second year of the Rat-Pac Report Wednesday, Sept. 17, with a double podcast that seeks feedback on the issues discussed in the past 52 weeks and highlights the completion of Pacific Partnership 2008.
"My interest is in ensuring that the subject matter that we discuss, and the audience to whom we discuss it, meets the needs of our fleet," Adm. Robert F. Willard said. "And I'm very interested in ensuring that the subjects of the next year's podcasts meet your needs."
To provide a mechanism for feedback for the podcasts, Willard launched a blog this week that will open discussion on topics already broadcast and on topics the audience selects for upcoming programs.
"As a means of trying to obtain feedback from you on whether you like the podcast, whether you don't, what subject matter you'd prefer to be covered, we're going to form a blog that will give you an opportunity to provide that feedback," he said.
For easy access to the U.S. Pacific Fleet commander's podcast, blog, biography and other information, visit www.cpf.navy.mil and click on "Admiral's Corner."

Following the discussion on the podcast anniversary, Willard recapped the third consecutive Pacific Partnership humanitarian mission, emphasizing the success of partnership building with non-government organizations, partner nations and host nations.
