Command Master Chief (SW/AW) Ricardo Moreyra, originally from Puerto Rico, entered the Navy in April 1991. After completing recruit training at Great Lakes, Illinois, he attended machinist mate “A” school.


His first assignment was a split tour, completing successful tours onboard both USS Iwo Jima (LPH 2) and USS Enterprise (CVN 65). Onboard Iwo Jima, he completed a deployment to the Mediterranean and Adriatic Sea and then assisted in the ship’s decommissioning in 1993. He continued sea duty aboard Enterprise where he completed a deployment in support of Operation Southern Watch and was advanced to petty officer second class.

In September 1996, he transferred to shore duty for a brief tour at Surface Intermediate Maintenance Activity (SIMA) Norfolk, Virginia before heading back to sea.

In September 1999, he attended the Oxygen and Nitrogen School en-route to Enterprise again where he deployed in support of Operations Deliberate Forge, Southern Watch, and Enduring Freedom. During this tour, he earned both Enlisted Surface and Enlisted Air Warfare Specialist along with other shipboard qualifications and was advanced to petty officer first class.

His next assignment was to the Center of Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) Cherry Point, North Carolina, as Corporate Enterprise Training Activity Resources System (CETARS) Administrator. He was selected for chief petty officer during this assignment.

He completed a follow-on tour at Naval Support Activity La Madallena, Italy, where he was instrumental in the successful Base Realignment and Closure of the base.

In January 2008, he reported to USS George Washington (CVN 73) as it conducted a homeport shift to Yokosuka, Japan to serve as the forward deployed carrier to the U.S. Seventh Fleet. During his tour, he sailed on three Western Pacific deployments with the ship and served as the engineering auxiliary division leading chief petty officer.

After his successful tour onboard Washington, he was assigned back to CNATT, where he was advanced to senior chief petty officer. He served as the Senior Enlisted Advisor (SEA) and the Cryogenics School Supervisor. While there, he also earned his Master Training Specialist qualification.

In February 2014, he graduated from the Senior Enlisted Academy and reported to Commander, Amphibious Squadron Six where he served as the SEA. Shortly thereafter, he was selected for master chief petty officer. In August 2014, he successfully completed the Command Master Chief/Chief of the Boat Course. In February 2016, he was selected for the Command Master Chief Program.


He completed Command Masterchief tours at Navy Recruiting District (NRD) Miami and onboard USS Kearsage (LHD 3).


Presently, Moreyra is the Command Master Chief for Commander, Navy Recruiting Command, Millington, Tennessee.
