When Rear Adm. Richard J. Naughton took command of training the Navy's top fighter pilots two years ago, he didn't wait long to make changes. Within a few months, he had pushed through a plan to gain oversight of 11 weapons schools around the country.

Unhappy with the menu at the enlisted mess hall, he got the Navy to install a hamburger joint and a taco stand.
