  2. Anything capturing junior Sailor quals, advancements, of the quarters, are all great. Cause and effect. I think the most effective bullet is one that shows the success of your command, junior Sailors, and breakouts. Remember, the board wants to see your success as a leader, not so much about you. The only thing that should be you, is your opening statement, and closing statement. You can find some great examples on navy writer.

  4. Sailors assigned to ships are the most at risk of being sexually assaulted in the Navy, though not all of those assaults happened aboard a ship or were committed by a member of their crew, according to a report released Friday. The Rand Corporation report was commissioned by the Defense Department to examine risk of sexual assault at military bases and commands around the world. https://pilotonline.com/news/military/local/article_86c77542-bdc5-11e8-8753-7b15ff638f42.html
  5. SEOUL, South Korea — A few blocks from the sloping, spaceship-shaped Dongdaemun Design Plaza in one of Seoul’s trendiest fashion districts is another odd sight. A tiny U.S. Army base sits just across the street from a hospital morgue and adjacent to a park that blocks its view from a major thoroughfare. https://www.stripes.com/news/pacific/tiny-us-base-in-south-korean-capital-prepares-to-close-its-gates-1.548298
  6. SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- A ceremony was hosted at General Dynamics-National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (GD-NASSCO) shipyard to celebrate the start of construction of the Navy's first John Lewis-class fleet replenishment oiler, the future USNS John Lewis (T-AO 205), Sept. 20. Before proceeding with the start of construction, the Navy conducted a Production Readiness Review (PRR) in order to verify the effectiveness and efficiency of the design and production planning within the program. Among other indicators, the program reported detail design and 3D modeling of the entire ships to be 95 percent complete. The results of the PRR were certified by the secretary of the Navy and submitted to Congress on Sept. 6, 2018. "Today marks a great accomplishment by the Navy and NASSCO team on this important program," said James F. Geurts, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, development and Acquisition. "Their tremendous collaboration on this new double-hulled design is a great example setting a positive trajectory leading into production." In developing the T-AO 205 design, the Navy worked closely with industry partners to conduct trade off studies that matured the government-developed ship specifications. The results of the trade-off studies were then combined into integrated ship designs. GD-NASSCO was later competitively awarded a Fixed Price Incentive block buy contract for the detail design and construction of six T-AO 205 class fleet replenishment oilers. The John Lewis-class ships are based on commercial design standards and will recapitalize the current T-AO 187 class fleet replenishment oilers to provide underway replenishment of fuel to Navy ships at sea. These ships are part of the Navy's Combat Logistics Force and will become the backbone of the fuel delivery system. John Lewis will be operated by the Navy's Military Sealift Command and is the first ship named after the civil rights leader and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient. "As the first ship of its class, the future USNS John Lewis will play a vital role in the mission of the Navy and Marine Corps, just like its namesake John Lewis' vital role as a national leader in the movement for civil rights and human dignity," said Mike Kosar, Support Ships, Boats and Craft program manager, Program Executive Office Ships (PEO Ships). As one of the Defense Department's largest acquisition organizations, PEO Ships is responsible for executing the development and procurement of all destroyers, amphibious ships, sealift ships, support ships, boats and craft.

  8. UNCLASSIFIED ROUTINE R 211511Z SEP 18 FM CNO WASHINGTON DC TO NAVADMIN INFO CNO WASHINGTON DC BT UNCLAS NAVADMIN 232/18 PASS TO OFFICE CODES: FM CNO WASHINGTON DC//N1// INFO CNO WASHINGTON DC//N1// MSGID/GENADMIN/CNO WASHINGTON DC/N1/SEP// SUBJ/MYNAVY CAREER CENTER BETA LAUNCH// RMKS/1. On 24 September 2018, MyNavy Career Center (MNCC) Beta goes live 24/7 the foundational element and initial step towards a modern tiered service delivery model that will improve the quality of Human Resource (HR) services (career planning, personnel, pay and training) we provide to Sailors and their families. MNCC will simplify HR tasks while reducing administrative burden, so Sailors can focus on what is most important - warfighting, mission and enjoying a better life-work balance. 2. The components of our HR service delivery capability that we are bringing together in MNCC Beta are MyNavyPortal (MNP) (Tier 0), the MyNavy Career Center (MNCC) contact center (Tier 1) and the cadre of subject matter experts (SME) who provide career planning and pay and personnel support (Tier 2) to Sailors today. At Tier 0, MNP provides a single point of entry for Sailors to get accurate information about the many different programs and services available to them. MNP also provides a location where Sailors can go to initiate an HR action, like a personnel action request, or submit a personnel information update/correction. These online services are available 24/7 and mirror the kind of service support we experience and come to expect in other facets of our daily lives. At Tier 1, contact center agents will provide a central clearing house for information requests, many they can answer directly. SMEs will provide the contact center agents with information they can share with Sailors, freeing up SMEs to process requests and work complex cases that require more individual attention. Service requests will be tracked to completion and monitored to ensure timely and accurate responses are provided. At Tier 2, detailers and personnel and pay professionals can better focus on more complex transactions, allowing routine calls to be handled by Tier 1 contact center agents. 3. Starting 24 September 2018, the MNCC Contact Center will have 200+ agents standing by supporting around-the-clock operations, ready to respond to Sailor questions and requests for help across the globe. Sailors, retirees and dependents can all use the MNCC contact center. Service requests can be started through a phone call, an email or through MNP - all of these channels will be connected to the same contact center for resolution and tracking. 4. These Sailor-centric self-service capabilities augment but do not replace the need for direct command leadership engagement on behalf of their Sailors. Command authority and action are still the drivers for most career actions. Command Pay and Personnel Administrators remain the most important and most direct link between commands and supporting personnel offices. MNP and MNCC contact center will be in place to augment and support the services currently provided by your supporting personnel office. 5. We strive to make it easier for you to conduct pay and personnel transactions with more responsive customer service. More than ever, we need our fighting force to focus on becoming more lethal and ready, and believe these HR improvements will help remove a few distractions along the way to getting us to that end. To assist us, we need constructive feedback on how we are doing, so please try out the new capabilities through MNP and MNCC. We look forward to serving and hearing from you. 6. In the coming months, you can expect release of a mobile version of MNP that is accessible without use of a Common Access Card. For now, MNP continues to operate through our dated personnel IT systems. Next year, you will see vastly improved, faster service and more features as we transition to a modern system. 7. MyNavy Career Center can be contacted via phone at 1-833- 330-MNCC (833- 330-6622) or via e-mail at askmncc(at)navy.mil. Also additional information can be found at my.navy.mil. 8.

  14. NORFOLK (NNS) -- NORFOLK – On Monday, Sept. 17, Airman Apprentice Joseph Min Naglak lost his life aboard the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) when he was struck by the turning propeller of an E-2C Hawkeye after securing the aircraft to the flight deck. Naglak, who enlisted in the Navy in his home state of New Jersey in April 2017, was an Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) Airman Apprentice. He reported to the ship four months later upon completion of his training in Pensacola, Florida. The loss of a shipmate is a heartbreaking experience for a crew of a Naval vessel and those aboard USS George H.W. Bush will mourn Naglak’s passing and remember him always for his devoted service and sacrifice to our Nation. The cause of the mishap remains under investigation. USS George H.W. Bush has resumed flight operations and remains underway at sea to complete naval pilot aircraft carrier qualifications.

  28. PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- Navy chiefs (E-7 to E-9) interested in shaping the future of their ratings are needed to serve as Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) for upcoming Fiscal Year 2019 Advancement Examination Readiness Reviews (AERRs). Released Sept. 7, Naval Administrative Message (NAVADMIN) 221/18 announced the AERR schedule for October through December 2018. Based on this schedule, AERR panel members work as Fleet SMEs for their respective ratings to develop E-4 to E-7 advancement exams for future cycles. Navy chiefs (E-7 to E-9) on active duty, Full Time Support (FTS), and reservists on Active Duty for Special Work (ADSW) are encouraged to take part in the process by reaching out to their respective Type Commander (TYCOMs) for application information. Each TYCOM has their own application procedure. "The knowledge that our fleet experts bring to the reviews is irreplaceable, it enables the exams to remain relevant and identifies Sailors, with the right skills to select for advancement," said Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) Command Master Chief, Master Chief Electronics Technician, Nuclear Power (SS) Gregory Prichard. “AERRs give chiefs a tangible, direct input toward shaping their community - participants have a say in what their reliefs need to know. AERR participation is also a significant experience and resume builder that has the potential to benefit every chief throughout the Navy." AERRs vary in length between one-to-two weeks and are held throughout the year, with most ratings being reviewed on an annual basis. The reviews are held at NETPDC at Saufley Field in Pensacola, Fla. AERR Participants receive temporary duty (TDY) orders from their parent command, paid for by NETPDC. Travel is processed through parent command travel section and the Defense Travel System. Chief Machinist Mate, Nuclear (SS/SW/AW) Jim Clark, with the Nuclear Power Training Unit, Ballston Spa, New York, recently participated in his first Machinist Mate AERR. “As a chief in the Navy, my role is to teach and give our Sailors the tools they need to succeed,” said Clark. “Reviewing and building advancement exams is the epitome of this role. There is a sense of pride in affecting the hundreds of advancements in our rating, and shaping the knowledge base of the Fleet.” To view the annual AERR schedule, locate a specific rating recruitment and selection point of contact or view AERR eligibility requirements, log into My Navy Portal http://www.mnp.navy.mil and search under Professional Resources/Navy Advancement Center/AERR. TYCOM POCs are listed, and once selected, chiefs will receive an introductory e-mail from the Navy Advancement Center. It is suggested that SME selectees make early contact, asking any questions they have concerning the AERR process. NAVADMIN 221/18 also provides additional information and a listing of upcoming rating conferences scheduled for the next six months. Normally, four-to-eight nominees will be selected for each AERR conference. TYCOM selections of Fleet SME nominations for the AERRs will be made 45 days prior to each review. SMEs should contact their command’s travel personnel as soon as they are selected, to get an early start on the process. SMEs attending classified AERRs should make sure their SIPR Token, if they have one, is active and they have recent access (within the last 30 days) to important reference sites. NETPDC’s mission is to provide products and services that enable and enhance education, training, career development, and personnel advancement throughout the Navy. Primary elements of the command include the Voluntary Education (VOLED) Department, the Navy Advancement Center (NAC), and the Resources Management Department.
