This study examines the impact of the amalgamation of the Navys former Commissaryman CS and Steward SD ratings into the Mess Management Specialist MS rating. Vehicles used to analyze the impact of the amalgamation include the responses of 6,594 CS, SD and MS personnel to the Navys Human Resource Management HRM survey during the three-year period, 1974-1976, and interview data gathered from 60 MS personnel from the San Diego area in early 1978. The amalgamation is also briefly analyzed using the Leavitt socio-technical model of organizational change. Included in the study is a historical view of the role food has played in naval operations and the role of food and food service support systems in the modern naval environment.
