  5. PORTSMOUTH, Va. — At the foot of the Chesapeake Bay in southeast Virginia lies a Naval shipyard older than the nation itself. One of the country’s first warships was built here in 1799. So was the first battleship, and decades later the first aircraft carrier. Over the past three centuries, Norfolk Naval Shipyard has been blockaded and burnt to the ground, only to be rebuilt again and again. Today, it’s one of four Navy shipyards that maintain the nation’s nuclear-powered submarines and aircraft carriers, which enable the Pentagon to respond quickly to military and humanitarian crises across the globe.

  7. The U.S. Navy expects one of its officers to be questioned as part of an investigation into the collision of a Norwegian warship and a commercial oil tanker this month in one of the Scandinavian nation’s fjords. The American officer, who has not been identified, was onboard the Norwegian navy frigate as part of a military personnel exchange, according to U.S. and Norwegian officials. The sailor’s role on the ship remains unclear. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/us-navy-officer-could-face-questions-in-norwegian-frigate-collision/2018/11/17/0d4ecf9e-eaac-11e8-bd89-eecf3b178206_story.html?utm_term=.8a8cee62828f

  10. Ashanti Billie's accused kidnapper remains incompetent to stand trial NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) -- A year after he was first charged with abducting and killing a teenager from a Virginia Beach military base, a U.S. Navy veteran remains incompetent to stand trial, court documents show. Eric Brian Brown is accused of abducting 19-year-old Ashanti Billie from outside of her job at a sandwich shop on Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story in September 2017. Her body was discovered in Charlotte, North Carolina 11 days after she disappeared. An autopsy showed that she died of undetermined trauma. Brown is facing a murder charge out of Charlotte. https://www.wavy.com/news/local-news/virginia-beach/ashanti-billie-s-accused-kidnapper-remains-incompetent-to-stand-trial/1600141333
  11. VIRGINIA BEACH Before leaving his barracks for the last time, Navy Seaman Robert "Colton" Wright texted a friend a photo of a box of 16-ounce Coors Light cans along with a message: "Couldn't wait dude." That was at 2:40 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, 2017, a little less than two hours before Wright left Naval Air Station Oceana to buy a bottle of Jack Daniels, sodas and some Pedialyte, a known hangover remedy. Shortly before 10 p.m., witnesses who called 911 described "mayhem" as Wright, 21, left a string of hit-and-runs before slamming his black 2012 Dodge Ram pickup through the master jet base’s unmanned closed back gate. https://pilotonline.com/news/military/local/article_4864eadc-d80f-11e8-9567-b3f2c3f8a65e.html

  15. WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The latest upgrade to MyNavy Portal (MNP) includes a checklist to guide Sailors and their families through their next Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move. My PCS Checklist allows Sailors to easily create their own personalized move checklist, and can be found in the Assignment, Leave, and Travel section of MNP under the Career and Life Events drop down menu. There is no question that PCS moves are challenging, whether it is a single Sailor heading across country or a family moving overseas. The process of relocating can be a source of personal, financial and family stress and it requires a great deal of logistical planning. My PCS Checklist makes the process better. Sailors can now create their own personalized checklist by using an intuitive, web-based program, to guide them through the PCS process and help eliminate unnecessary stress. “Creating the checklist is easy,” said Capt. Chris Harris, director, distribution management division, Navy Personnel Command. “Sailors answer a few questions in the online checklist, starting with their official detachment date, which automatically generates a personalized, step-by-step checklist that calculates the number of days to complete each item until their move from their current command. Sailors can print out their checklist at work or email it to a spouse, parent or anyone with whom they want to share the information.” The checklist is broken down into four categories – Shipping Household Goods, Family Move, Money and Sailor Admin. Based on the detachment date selected, the checklist outlines necessary activities, due dates and includes tips and sources of support for each category. The program includes a taskbar that indicates how far along Sailors are in completing their activities and they will receive alerts to remind them to complete the tasks to stay on their PCS timeline. “MyNavy Portal addresses one of the major issues Sailors face when managing their careers – they have to use too many websites to complete routine tasks for managing their careers,” said Dave Driegert, PMW 240 assistant program manager, Single Point of Entry for MNP. “My PCS Checklist is the newest tool for Sailors and joins other recently-available applications like MyRecord Web 1.0 and electronic Personnel Action Request (ePAR)/1306. MNP is growing all the time. In the months ahead, Sailors will be able to access an increasing number of new features and tools.” Sailors should work with their command pay and personnel administrator if they have any questions concerning PCS policies and procedures. They may also contact MyNavy Career Center 24/7 at askmncc@navy.mil, or toll-free at 833-330-MNCC (6622). In addition to PCS information, MNP provides Sailors links to other webpages and resources – all in one convenient location.

  22. WASHINGTON — Widespread information technology problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs continue to affect thousands of student veterans who have gone without housing payments months into the fall semester. While it has caused unease among veterans who need the monthly stipends to pay their rent and other bills, the problems are also costing taxpayers. To handle a large workload of veterans’ education claims, the VA ordered mandatory overtime and brought on 202 additional employees. https://www.stripes.com/news/veterans/a-perfect-storm-of-gi-bill-problems-is-costing-veterans-taxpayers-1.556603

  24. FY-19 Medical Service Corps In-Service Procurement Program Selection Board Select List
  25. The results have been posted for this year. Unfortunately, I am not one of the individuals selected this year. It is weird that I was selected as an alternate last year and this year I wasn't on the selection list at all this year. I guess it was extremely competitive this year. Then again, NO Marines were selected for any of the programs this year. Here is the link to the results: https://www.med.navy.mil/sites/nmpdc/professional-development/SitePages/Medical Service Corps Program MSCIPP-PA.aspx
  26. Our series, Profiles in Service, spotlights Americans who dedicate their lives to helping others. On this Veteran's Day, we introduce you to Capt. Amy Bauernschmidt, the first woman in Navy history to hold the title of executive officer, or XO, of a nuclear aircraft carrier. As the XO, Bauernschmidt is the second in command of the USS Abraham Lincoln, one of 11 U.S. aircraft carriers stationed around the world. Bauernschmidt manages the ship's day-to-day operations, so the commander can focus on strategy. She basically runs a floating city of 5,000 people – a city with a mission. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/profiles-in-service-amy-bauernschmidt-navy-first-woman-xo-nuclear-warship/
  27. The Navy Advancement Center will post Senior Chief and Master Chief Petty Officer selection board eligibility profile sheets on November 30, 2018.
