  5. The Navy Advancement Center continues to process exam results from the Fall 2019 administrations. We are tracking well to publish results next week. CNP will provide the publication schedule, to include quotas, in advance of publication. The key document for you to review after publication is your Exam Profile Sheet. This PDF document is available for download on MyNavy Portal or using your NEAS Web self-service account at URL https://prod-neas.ncdc.navy.mil/NEASRpts/Individual.aspx. Profile Sheets give you some very important information. You will be given your Final Multiple Score factor totals (Exam Standard Score, Performance Mark Average, Service in Paygrade, Awards, Education Points, and Pass Not Advance Points) as well as the average FMS factor total points your competition had for the exam cycle. Also on your Profile Sheet is the Minimum FMS required to advance compared to your total FMS. One of the most important sections on the Profile Sheet is your exam performance. This section includes topic areas, the number of questions, what number of questions you answered correctly, and how well you did compared to your peers represented as a percentile. The status section at the bottom indicates your standing for the advancement cycle. Your status could be Advanced, PNA point, No PNA points, or Discrepancy. If you get a Profile Sheet in a discrepancy status, contact your command Educational Services Officer to resolve.
  6. His pay grade restored by President Donald J. Trump on Friday, Special Warfare Operator Chief Edward “Eddie” Gallagher has filed an inspector general’s complaint against the Navy’s top SEAL, accusing him of uttering contemptuous statements about the commander in chief. In the works for four months, the move came hours before a Wednesday morning meeting with Naval Special Warfare superiors in California, who are expected to inform Gallagher that Naval Special Warfare commander Rear Adm. Collin Green has convened a Trident Review Board to take the coveted SEAL qualification pin away from the special operator. https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2019/11/20/did-the-navys-top-seal-show-contempt-for-trump/

  8. The Navy SEAL at the center of a high-profile war crimes case has been ordered to appear before Navy leaders Wednesday morning, and is expected to be notified that the Navy intends to oust him from the elite commando force, two Navy officials said on Tuesday. The move could put the SEAL commander, Rear Adm. Collin Green, in direct conflict with President Trump, who last week cleared the sailor, Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher, of any judicial punishment in the war crimes case. Military leaders opposed that action as well as Mr. Trump’s pardons of two soldiers involved in other murder cases. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/19/us/navy-seals-edward-gallagher-trident.html
  9. ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) -- The Navy continues to focus on families with the latest update of the MyNavy Family app. First released in May, the free app has been downloaded over ten thousand times. “The app has done exactly what we intended which is to both inform families and encourage them to continue to provide feedback to improve the app,” said Amanda Burns, the MyNavy Family app product owner. The May release included 12 main content areas, Navy Spouse 101 Information, links to Naval Services FamilyLine website and other pertinent websites. Based on feedback from the initial release, the app was updated in June to include links for Spouse Licensure Reimbursement, Blue Star Families and Navy Gold Star Program. This month, the app underwent several improvements to include a new search feature on the "Welcome Screen" and three additional content areas. There is now sections on family financial planning, survivor’s resources, and parents and family members of Sailors. “Whether a spouse or family member is new to the Navy or they have been part of our family for ten years, it can be difficult to know where to turn for support,” said Perry Christiansen, lead policy analyst with the Family Readiness Program Office. “This app allows our Sailors and families to quickly find information and resources to let them navigate to find the information they need.” Additional links were added that help Sailors and their families during a permanent change of station move including a link to the Navy Lodge which offers safe, clean and affordable accommodations at 39 locations worldwide. From its inception, the app was built to provide an interactive user experience that contains relevant and timely information. “All of the apps we develop are updated on a regular basis to provide accurate information that Sailors and their families can rely on,” said David Driegert, assistant program manager for the Sea Warrior Program (PMW 240) mobility program which developed the app. “The MyNavy Family app is a good example of how we work as an integrated agile team to quickly respond to suggested improvements and implement them to benefit Sailors and their families.” The app is located in the Navy App Locker along with 23 other apps that focus on everything from fitness and training to education and life skills.

  11. WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Navy is close to establishing what is intended to be an early stop on a continuum of learning, as it nears hiring the leadership of its soon-to-be-formed Naval Community College. Creating a Naval Community College is part of the department’s much larger effort to completely revamp how it supports and arranges education for Navy and Marine Corps officers and enlisted personnel. The community college will serve as a critical gateway to learning for enlisted personnel. It will also help set the standard throughout the ranks that learning doesn’t stop with advanced technical training, or “A” school, according to two panels speaking Thursday at the Education For Seapower Symposium, hosted by the U.S. Naval Institute at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. https://news.usni.org/2019/11/14/navy-close-to-hiring-leaders-for-new-community-college

  20. WASHINGTON — Veterans are a key target for online fraud and attempts to meddle in U.S. elections, with bogus web pages and charities aimed at the military community pushing propaganda and disinformation to gin up political discord, tech industry leaders and lawmakers said Wednesday. https://www.stripes.com/news/veterans/ahead-of-2020-election-lawmakers-alarmed-over-foreign-agents-targeting-veterans-on-social-media-1.607199
  21. WASHINGTON (NNS) (NNS) -- Repairs to USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) are complete, and all efforts are being made to return the carrier and air wing to sea to conduct operations. In August, the Navy announced an emergent maintenance requirement for an electrical issue aboard Truman. The Navy replaced damaged components and completed tests to ensure no further issues will arise. An engineering analysis, coupled with inspections aboard several aircraft carriers, show that this was a localized issue and not a class-wide concern. The success of this repair was due to the outstanding efforts of multiple Navy organizations and industry partners who quickly brought their expertise and skills to bear to resolve this issue. “Returning HST to full functionality was a team effort with a tremendous amount of work and collaboration by NAVSEA, our industry partners, shipyard workers and the crew of HST to overcome a very challenging technical issue,” said Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command, Vice Admiral Thomas Moore. Every effort is being made to make the carrier, air wing and Sailors operationally ready to deploy.

  24. FORT LEE, Va. (NNS) -- Instructors at Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit (CNATTU) Norfolk, Learning Site Fort Lee, completed the pilot for new “C”-school level training, called the Non-Tactical Parachute Systems course, Nov. 6. Based on a need identified by fleet subject matter experts, Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) created this course specifically to train Sailors serving in the aircrew survival equipmentman (PR) rating to inspect, rig, and repair non-tactical parachutes and most technical survival equipment used in support of naval special warfare (NSW). The course serves as an example for how learning centers are responding to Naval Education and Training Command’s challenge to respond to emergent fleet training requirements better, faster, and more effectively in the delivery of training. CNATT’s instructional design and subject matter experts developed the training in minimal time, and this is one of the first CNATT courses designed and developed organically without contracted support. “The importance of this course and the positive impact it will have on the NSW and EOD [explosive ordnance disposal] communities cannot be overstated,” said Master Chief Aircrew Survival Equipmentman Aaron Carroll, CNATT N7 training department leading chief. “This course will make it possible for CNATTU Norfolk PR instructors to bring an advanced level of instruction to students in an already critical field of naval aviation.” The course encompasses 80 hours of instruction, most of which is hands-on with specialized equipment. CNATTU Norfolk is the first command in the Department of Defense (DoD) to offer this course. Due to the ever-evolving nature of their job, PRs complete elaborate “A” and “C” school training to prepare them for the fleet. The new course, CIN # C-860-0012, is an addition to the special operations rigger pipeline that awards course graduates the 773A Navy enlisted classification code and enables them to transition to the NSW field of their rating. Through the DoD, graduates can also, achieve the Federal Aviation Administration’s certification and license for senior parachute rigger, considered to be a journeyman-technician-level credential. “PRs have a demanding responsibility in the Navy, and we must ensure they have the right training when they need it to perform at their highest level,” said Carroll. “This course enhances our PR career-long learning continuum and better aligns the training with fleet requirements and warfighter needs.” The Navy created the PR rating during World War II to help the Navy meet parachute survival standards. Originally known as parachute riggers, PRs changed their official job title to aircrew survival equipmentman in 1965 to reflect the multitude of responsibilities that come with their rating. “We are proud of our PRs and their ability to provide this new, top-notch training to the fleet,” said Cmdr. Jack Morris, the prospective CNATTU Norfolk commanding officer. “The course will undoubtedly save the Navy money, but more importantly, it will save Sailors’ lives.” For more on the PR rating, visit https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/enlisted/pr.htm. CNATTU Norfolk’s mission is to provide rate specific aviation fundamental training while professionally delivering specialized aviation "C" school training to maintain and operate air weapons systems supporting MH-53E/MH-60S/MQ-8C helicopters, E-2C/D Airborne Early Warning aircraft, C-2A(R) Carrier Onboard Delivery aircraft, Airborne Mine Counter Measure (AMCM), MQ-8C Firescout, aviation maintenance administration management, aviation boatswain's mate, aviation ordnanceman, interior communications electrician, and PR professional and rating skills.

  26. It epitomized U.S. air power during the Cold War, was used extensively by the U.S. in Vietnam and was still in active service decades later. But now, the iconic F-4 Phantom II fighter-bomber is flying into the sunset. Only a few dozen Phantoms remain in active service around the world out of 5,195 built during a 20-year production run that started in the 1950s. The American ones, flown by the Air Force, Navy and Marines, are all gone, many of them having been shot down in their final roles as target-practice drones. Those still in use by foreign air forces are slated for retirement in the near future. https://www.stripes.com/news/disappearing-phantom-iconic-jet-nears-end-of-service-1.606819
  27. WASHINGTON — Several years ago, Iraq War veteran Kayla Williams and her family moved to Pennsylvania, where she and her husband received $500 each semester toward her two children’s school costs, thanks to a statewide benefit. The only problem? They had relocated from Virginia — a state that provides free tuition to children of disabled veterans. Williams’ husband, also a veteran, has a 100 percent disability rating from the VA. https://www.stripes.com/news/new-study-shows-veteran-benefit-discrepancies-between-states-1.606895
