MAYPORT, FLA. — Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert shared his vision of the Navy and listened to concerns of sailors during an All-Hands Call at Naval Station Mayport on Tuesday.

Greenert, who spent Monday in Kings Bay at the submarine base, traveled to Mayport and addressed hundreds of sailors, some of whom got a chance to ask questions.

"Your question is what about the one I have — it is yours," Greenert said when asked about possible changes to the future of the Navy’s retirement plan. Sailors asked a variety of questions ranging from tuition assistance to housing.

Mayport currently has 18 ships, with the latest addition being the amphibious transport dock New York. The base has 6,000 men and women in uniform with another 2,700 civilians working on base.

Greenert said this base is on a steady course.

"We still got the Iwo Jima coming here, a big ship. That's a lot of work, and the Fort McHenry. That will continue on track. We have, as I mentioned bringing in little combat ships here. We are still working through, want to make sure Mayport and the area gets a good shot at patrol craft maintenance. I don't see dramatic change in near term," said Greenert in news conference following his town hall meeting with sailors
