  2. Littoral Combat Ship USS Freedom (LCS-1) left a pier in San Diego, Calif., for the first time in more than two years, after an extensive repair period to fix the ship’s propulsion system. The underway was part of contractor trials to test repairs after a Colt-Pielstick diesel engine was damaged in 2016, a Navy spokesperson told USNI News on Monday. https://news.usni.org/2018/12/18/uss-freedom-gets-underway-two-years-repairs
  3. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Tribune News Service) — The cellphone video shows a baby dangling from a belt or scarf around his neck, eyes "bulging and watering" as he is held above a bed inside base housing at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, according to the Camden County Sheriff's Office arrest report. The video starts with the now 7-month-old baby gagging as water is poured in his open mouth and elsewhere, and ends with him left alone in the bedroom, his neck still wrapped with the belt or scarf, the report said. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/sailor-wife-arrested-at-naval-submarine-base-kings-bay-for-filming-child-abuse-incident-1.561155

  5. The U.S. Navy's top officer released an updated version of his strategy document Monday, an expanded version heavy on goals for specific programs that extend beyond his tenure as chief of Naval Operations. Almost twice the length of the first, Adm. John Richardson's Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority version 2.0 expands on some of the concepts laid out in the 2016 version, and functions as a to-do list for the fleet and his staff at OPNAV. https://www.businessinsider.com/navys-top-officer-updates-sea-strategy-key-takeaways-2018-12

  7. MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Navy Personnel Command (NPC) is receiving encouraging feedback from the recently concluded Fleet testing phase of the new performance evaluation coaching tool, which is part of ongoing Sailor 2025 personnel systems modernization efforts, NPC leadership said Dec. 14. “We’re focused on driving culture change that places greater value on the development of every member of the team through inspired coaching and effective performance assessment.” said Rear Adm. Jeff Hughes, NPC commander. “Fleet input is essential to this process. Full results won’t be available until January, but initial feedback has been constructive and very positive.” This testing phase included nearly 10,000 participants from 140 active-duty and Reserve component commands representing numerous Navy communities across the fleet. One of the participants, Chief Warrant Officer 3 Alex Roque, administrative and legal officer, Naval Special Warfare Unit 2, said that this new coaching tool allows him to see which Sailors are truly succeeding under his charge or how his peers view his leadership abilities. “It allows you to see if how you perceive yourself is how others do. I liked the fact that you are able to truly receive a holistic view of who the person (being) evaluated really is (from subordinates, peers and supervisors),” Roque said. The design concept of the new performance evaluation system places greater emphasis on meaningful, useful and more frequent performance feedback. Objectively measuring individual performance using a more effective process will yield better individual and team development. “This will help form a more rounded assessment for feedback for the member and for supervisors,” said Master Chief Petty Officer Sean Roos of Navy Special Operation Command, a 26-year veteran. “(I like that the process involves) supervisors and subordinates. I was very comfortable with the process.” Sailors are evaluated against a paygrade standard instead of unit-level peer comparisons and the process features methodically developed trait and value statement assessment criteria specific to the paygrade bands. The value statements are observable behaviors that are assessed using a nine-point graduated measurement scale where each point on the scale indicates to what degree a Sailor exhibits the behavior. For example, a five indicates that the member fully meets standard at current grade. Evaluators make their assessment for each value statement within a limited response time, which encourages an instinctual assessment of the Sailor’s qualities. The timed response is based on proven behavioral science theory that indicates an initial response is usually the most candid and accurate. The incorporation of the assessment inputs from the Sailor, rater, peers and subordinates are compiled into a comprehensive report for a more satisfying coaching session between the Sailor and rater. Test participant Senior Chief Hospital Corpsman Fred Turner, a 23-year veteran and senior enlisted leader for the Director for Administration at the Naval Health Clinic Hawaii, said he was most comfortable providing feedback on subordinates and peers within the new performance evaluation system because he is used to that in the current system; however, Turner is optimistic about the broader feedback opportunities of the proposed performance evaluation transformation (PET) system. “I believe the PET tool can be a very valuable asset to encourage improved Sailor performance in the job each presently holds, to provide growth opportunity for Sailors who wish to pursue possibilities for promotion, and to ultimately provide the Navy with highly qualified personnel,” Turner said. “Evaluating my rater was less comfortable but exciting,” said Turner. “Having the opportunity to provide feedback on my rater allowed me to exercise some courage in order to give them honest feedback. Evaluating myself was probably the most uncomfortable. During the self-evaluation I found myself questioning if I was rating myself too high or if I was being too critical of myself.” Using modern technology, the new evaluation system will work on an online, web-based application accessible from both work and personal computers, tablets and even smart phones. “We are enhancing the process and fielding a tool with modern features, expanding access and providing a better user experience for Sailors,” Hughes said. The coaching portion of the transformed evaluation system is scheduled to be released to the fleet next year. Phase four of PET testing is scheduled to take place after the results of phase three are compiled, analyzed and applied to the next version of the tool. For more information about performance evaluation transformation and to test drive the self-assessment coaching tool, Sailors should visit MyNavy Portal at https://www.mnp.navy.mil/group/performance. Additionally, the information is available without Common Access Card via the NPC website via link: https://go.usa.gov/xPJVE
  8. SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- The Navy held a ceremony Dec. 14 at Naval Base Coronado to commemorate the establishment of Fleet Logistics Multi-Mission Squadron (VRM) 30, the Navy’s first CMV-22B squadron. VRM-30 was established to begin the Navy’s transition from the C-2A Greyhound, which has provided logistics support to aircraft carriers for four decades, to the CMV-22B, which has an increased operational range, greater cargo capacity, faster cargo loading/unloading, increased survivability and enhanced beyond-line-of-sight communications compared to the C-2A. "Where no instructions existed, no patch existed, no ‘here’s how we are going to perform our duties everyday’ existed, this team will define that. And it’s exciting because we can establish right off the bat those best practices,” said Vice Adm. DeWolfe H. Miller III, Commander, Naval Air Forces. “This platform is our future and when you look at the nature of the future fight, we need that versatility, that flexibility that’s going to be provided in every subsequent squadron that transitions.” The first CMV-22B aircraft are scheduled to be delivered to the squadron in FY20. While VRM-30 awaits the arrival of the CMV-22B, Navy pilots and maintainers will train with the United States Marine Corps, which has flown the MV-22 since 2007. As the C-2A squadrons stand down, their pilots and aircrew will transition to the CMV-22B. The final C-2A squadron is scheduled to stand down in FY24. The CMV-22B is the U.S. Navy version of the V-22 Osprey, a multi-engine, dual-piloted, self-deployable, medium lift, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) tilt-rotor aircraft.
  9. Virginia Beach, Va. (NNS) -- As part of the Navy Exchange Service Command's (NEXCOM) We Believe! holiday events, more than 30,000 deployed and forward-deployed Sailors and Marines will receive either a free $10 prepaid card or virtual calling minutes using a virtual personal identification number (VPIN). Both the card and VPIN can be used aboard U.S. Navy ships or via shore-based telephone systems in the US and overseas. “I remember military deployments, many over the holidays, missing Mom’s smile or the sound of her voice,” said Command Master Chief Shannon Howe, NEXCOM. “Since nearly half of our NEXCOM associates have some form of military affiliation, our team understands what it means to be away from loved ones during the holidays. We hope that providing a phone call home will help make that separation a little easier. We respect and thank you for your sacrifices.” The ships that will receive the free prepaid phone cards or VPINs are: Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge (LHD 3), amphibious transport dock USS Arlington (LPD 24), amphibious dock landing ship USS Fort McHenry (LSD 43), Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS McFaul (DDG 74), USS Gravely (DDG 74), amphibious command ship USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20), USS Donald Cook (DDG 75), USS Carney (DDG 64), USS Ross (DDG 71), USS Porter (DDG 78), coastal patrol ship USS Tempest (PC 2), USS Hurricane (PC 3), USS Monsoon (PC 4), USS Sirocco (PC 6), USS Squall (PC 7), USS Chinook (PC 9), USS Firebolt (PC 10), USS Whirlwind (PC 11), USS Thunderbolt (PC 12), mine countermeasures ship USS Sentry (MCM 3), USS Devastator (MCM 6), USS Gladiator (MCM 11), USS Dextrous (MCM 13), Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C.

  10. Basic Allowance for Housing rates will increase an average of 2.55 percent beginning on January 1, 2019, the Department of Defense announced late Friday afternoon. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/basic-allowance-for-housing-rates-for-2019-are-released-will-increase-an-average-of-2-55-percent-1.560797
  11. You will see a BOL code. The "A" for approved will be replaced by an "A-1". Meaning the application and the 1 additional item (addendum) is approved.
  12. Only been on board 4 months and got the Welcome Aboard P and a below RSCA trait average, and every CPO that talked to me made it very clear I was getting it. But the write up is def way better than a P write up as told to me by the few CPOs that have seen it so hopefully that will speak enough at the board. Hopefully between that and the transfer eval my package will be an improvement from last year. Not much leadership in the 4 month but I’m also at a staff command so... but plenty in last years and the transfer with Sailors producing greatly as well as FY17 BJOY and JSOY. Happy holidays everyone and keep studying!
  13. Four petty officers accused of sex crimes with a child in the barracks of a Washington state base have received non-judicial punishment and are being kicked out of the Navy, officials confirmed this week. The four avoided court-martial because an officer reviewing the case found insufficient evidence to take the charges to trial, according to Submarine Group 9 spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Michael Smith. https://www.businessinsider.com/navy-punished-sailors-accused-of-sex-crimes-with-child-2018-12
  14. The Navy has taken steps to address training shortfalls in the surface fleet, but faces persistent maintenance and personnel challenges as it seeks to rebuild ship and submarine readiness. While the Navy has corrective actions underway, they will take years to implement. Following ship collisions in 2017, the Navy has taken steps to ensure its crews are trained to standards prior to deployment and made significant progress in those efforts. https://news.usni.org/2018/12/12/gao-report-navy-marine-corps-aviation-ship-readiness
  15. Just submitted my Addendum, can't wait to see what the next three months have in store, while we wait for the results. Does anyone know how to verify that your addendum was received, other than calling NPC directly.
  16. A Chinese military expert has suggested the People’s Liberation Navy should “ram” the next U.S. warship to sail through waters claimed by China, according to a report by the state-run newspaper Global Times. According to the newspaper, Dai Xu, president of China’s Institute of Marine Safety and Cooperation, on Saturday said: “If the US warships break into Chinese waters again, I suggest that two warships should be sent: one to stop it, and another one to ram it.” https://www.stripes.com/news/report-chinese-military-expert-calls-for-prc-navy-to-ram-us-warships-in-contested-waters-1.560438

This NAVADMIN announces revised selective reenlistment bonus (SRB) award levels and reenlistment policy for active component (AC) and full-time support (FTS) and supersedes reference (a). It updates the SRB program by adding award levels for 19 skills in 10 ratings, increasing award levels for 35 skills in 12 ratings, decreasing award levels for 59 skills in 27 ratings, removing award levels for 11 skills in 7 ratings and announces the implementation of a pilot program incorporating a pay for performance element into the SRB program, in which eligible Sailors can receive an additional 0.5 multiple or *kicker* in their SRB multiple if they meet specific criteria. This NAVADMIN also realigns the reenlistment window allowing Sailors who are eligible for combat zone tax exclusion and Sailors who received an early promote in block 45 of their most recent regular periodic evaluation to reenlist within 180 days of their end of active obligated service (EAOS). 2. Increased award levels are effective immediately and decreased levels are effective 30 days after the release of this NAVADMIN. Annual bonus amounts may not exceed $30K per 12 months of additional obligated service as stated in reference (b). Additional bonus calculation information can be found at the following website: http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers- npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/pages/srb.aspx. 3. Reenlistment requests for the listed SRB award levels will be approved based on quota availability. SRB reenlistment requests for FTS are currently not being accepted. SRB reenlistment requests for AC must be submitted to Community Management Support Branch (BUPERS- 328) via Officer Personnel Information System (OPINS) or Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) 35 to 120 days in advance of the requested reenlistment date for the Sailor. Eligible Sailors desiring SRB reenlistment are encouraged to work with their chain of command as early as possible within their reenlistment window to maximize potential for SRB. BUPERS-328 maintains the current list of SRB eligible ratings/skills based on available quotas at the following website: http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers- npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/pages/srb.aspx. Addendums to the current award message posted on this site provide notification of skill closures and supersede the current NAVADMIN. For those commands with limited internet access, command career counselors (CCC) should contact BUPERS-328 directly for the latest updates. 4. AC SRB award levels are as follows (Note: a * indicates a level located in other sections of paragraph 4, a - indicates a reduction from previous award level, a + indicates an increase from previous award level): a.

Notes (1) Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 0000, commonly referred to as quad zero, is listed here to establish that Sailors in these ratings/career fields can hold any or no NEC and still be qualified for the SRB provided they meet all other applicable non- NEC related criteria. (2) Subsurface or surface designation does not mean an individual must be subsurface or enlisted surface warfare specialist qualified, but it indicates the component of the rating in which they can reasonably be expected to serve. Training, qualifications and previous or projected duty assignments at-sea will indicate the appropriate rating component. When using the force management system and OPINS to input a SRB precertification request, use the rating (with appropriate suffix designation/NEC) as specified in this NAVADMIN. For example, a surface electronics technician with no NEC would submit *ET(SW)* on precertification for rating. (3) An SRB approval for all CT, IS, IT and ITS ratings will be contingent upon the Sailor having a current single scope background investigation (SSBI) or Tier 5 investigation, an active SSBI/Tier 5 or recent submission of a SSBI/Tier 5 package. Commands must verify the Sailor has a current SSBI/Tier 5, active SSBI/Tier 5 or has submitted a SSBI/Tier 5 package and make note of this in the comments section of the precertification request. (4) E-3 to E-6 Sailors only. Sailors selected for E-7 advancement are not eligible for SRB. (5) X is used as a placeholder to identify where multiple NECs within a rating are eligible for a stated award level. Sailors in the specified rating that hold an NEC that includes the numbers preceding X are eligible for SRB. For example, SO O9XA includes SO O91A and SO O92A or T1XB includes all subsurface electronics technician navigation NECs contained in T1XA series. (6) Reenlistment bonuses for nuclear-trained Sailors. (a) Reenlistment compensation for zones 1 through 3 nuclear- trained Sailors holding a nuclear supervisor NEC shall be provided under the enlisted supervisor retention pay (ESRP) program in line with policies and procedures detailed in reference (c) along with current ESRP multiples. (b) SRB entitlement for eligible nuclear-trained Sailors who reenlist after applying for an officer program will be held pending selection results. For nuclear-trained Sailors only, the date on which conditional release is approved by Nuclear Propulsion Program Manager (OPNAV N133) as directed in reference (d) is considered the date of the application to an officer program with the exception of Seaman to Admiral 21 nuclear option (STA-21(N)) and Limited Duty Officer (LDO). For STA-21(N) and LDO, the application deadline is considered the suspense date. (7) E-4 to E-6 Sailors only. Sailors selected for E-7 advancement are not eligible for SRB. (8) E-3 to E-5 Sailors only. Sailors selected for E-6 advancement are not eligible for SRB. (9) FCA 0000 SRB eligibility contingent upon graduation of an FCA NEC awarding "C" school. (10) Sailors holding a CTI NEC must be differentiated by enlisted manning code (EMC). Only Sailors having one of the following NECs and assigned in the respective EMC are eligible for SRB: (a) NEC: 9SPA, EMC: B515 (b) NEC: 813A/9RUS, EMC: B516 (c) NEC: 9ARB/9PES, EMC: B511 (d) NEC: 9CMN, EMC: B512 (11) Sailors are eligible for a +0.5 pay for performance SRB kicker contingent upon meeting all requirements specified in paragraph 6 below. (12) For Submarine (SS) Sailors only. 5. Sailors must reenlist within 180 days of their EAOS, except in the following cases: a. Nuclear-trained Sailors. b. Sailors who must OBLISERV to execute a permanent change of station move will be allowed to reenlist early any time within one calendar year of the detachment month, but not later than the date of detachment from the last intermediate duty station. 6. Pay for performance is a Sailor 2025 initiative and is being piloted as part of a talent management process improvement effort. Eligibility and submission requirements are as follows: a. To be eligible for the pay for performance SRB Pilot Sailors must: (1) Be in the EM, EN, GSM, MM(SW), DC, HT or MR rating. (2) Have received two early promotes in block 45 of their three most recent regular (Block 8) periodic evaluations (Block 10). No transfer, concurrent or special evaluations will apply. (3) Have not received non-judicial punishment within the last 3 years. (4) Have not failed any part of the physical fitness assessment in the last 3 years. b. Commands must submit a 1306 requesting the SRB kicker, signed copies of the evaluations of the Sailor and a printout of their physical readiness information management system data to BUPERS-328 once their precertification has been submitted. This requirement is only for those that fall under the provisions of this paragraph. c. Award ceiling cap values under $100,000 will be raised by $5,000 for Sailors eligible for the performance kicker. For example: EN Zone A award ceiling will be raised from $30,000 to $35,000 for Sailors who qualify for the performance kicker. Award ceiling caps will not be adjusted over $100,000 under these provisions. 7. SRB Submission Requirements a. Commands are required to submit SRB reenlistment requests to BUPERS-328 via OPINS or NSIPS 35 to 120 days in advance of the requested reenlistment date of the Sailor. Requests submitted less than 35 days prior to the requested reenlistment date will be rejected. However, commands may contact BUPERS-328 for waiver eligibility and procedures. Sailors must have an approved SRB request before reenlisting. The servicing personnel office is responsible for verifying the reenlistment, posting the contract, releasing the first payment and verifying the master military pay account. Commands shall immediately notify OPNAV N130 when a Sailor fails to maintain eligibility in the skill for which SRB was paid (e.g., loss of security clearance, medical disqualification, loss of eligible NEC, misconduct) or when a Sailor has an approved separation with a remaining SRB contract obligation. b. Career Waypoints - Reenlistment (C-WAY-REEN). Commands are authorized to submit SRB reenlistment requests prior to a Sailor receiving a C-WAY-REEN quota. However, the C-WAY-REEN quota request must be submitted. In these cases, the SRB request will not be processed until the Sailor has received C-WAY-REEN confirmation. SRB requests without C-WAY-REEN quota approval will be rejected in OPINS to keep the command informed of potential SRB approval issues. Once a Sailor has an approved C-WAY-REEN quota, the command should contact BUPERS-328 to clear any rejections. Failure to submit a SRB reenlistment request within the required 35 to 120-day submission window due to awaiting a C-WAY-REEN quota does not meet eligibility requirements for a 35-day submission waiver. c. Sailors with approved SRB requests who do not reenlist on the date or for the term specified in the precertification message must have their command contact BUPERS-328 to initiate a reenlistment cancellation to avoid placing Sailors in an overpaid status. d. To validate an inoperative extension of enlistment and expedite processing of an SRB request, include the following information in the remarks paragraph of the request: term, narrative reason, authority and execution date of all inoperative extensions. Failure to verify extension will cause processing delays and may result in rejection of the request or an approval at a lower amount. e. Sailors must obtain an approval for extension from BUPERS- 328 in order to minimize the potential for loss of SRB eligibility. 8. Acceptance of an NEC-specific SRB contract indicates an agreement between the Sailor and the Navy to use skills attributed to the NEC during the enlistment of the Sailor to meet fleet readiness requirements. In subsequent tours, a Sailor must be willing to be detailed during the normal projected rotation date window to an available billet within the SRB contracted NEC, consistent with sea-shore flow requirements. Lateral conversions must follow reference (e), paragraph 12d. Lateral conversion requests will normally not be processed more than nine months before the EAOS. Conversions to a rate with a lower award level normally will not be approved. Personnel in a closed-loop NEC can reenlist by the NEC only. 9. Reference (e), paragraph 12e, provides OBLISERV to Train (OTT) guidance. Requests are to be submitted to BUPERS-328 extension desk via e-mail. A copy of the authorization message should be retained by the Sailor until the SRB reenlistment on graduation day from the course of instruction. Use code 1CC for OTT SRB request in OPINS or NSIPS. Additionally, OBLISERV requirements for schools are provided in reference (f). OBLISERV will be determined based on the course length as provided in paragraph 3b of reference (f). Paragraph 3c(1) no longer applies. 10. In keeping with Department of Defense (DoD) policy, Sailors who accepted an enlistment bonus for extended enlistment (EBEE), as reflected on their Enlisted Bonus Payment Checklist (NAVCRUIT 1133/52, Enlistment Guarantees, New Accession Training Program Enlistment Guarantee or Professional Apprenticeship Career Track Program Enlistment Guarantees), are not authorized to use this inoperative extension time in the SRB calculation. Sailors who have inoperative extension time through a 5-year obligation or 6- year obligation program may continue to have up to 24 months of inoperative extension time count towards the SRB calculation provided the reenlistment results in a new EAOS that is at least 24 months day-for-day past the current extended EAOS. This calculation is performed automatically by BUPERS-328. Local commands are not authorized to cancel or change extensions for the purpose of immediate SRB reenlistments. Commands must verify and annotate on the precertification request whether any inoperative extension time noted is part of an EBEE contract. 11. Repayment policy is governed by section 373 of Title 37 U.S. Code, Chapter 2, Volume 7A, of the DoD Financial Management Regulation (FMR) and reference (e), which collectively determines when repayment of the unearned portion of a bonus is required or not required but left to Secretarial discretion or prohibited. Section 373 of Title 37 U.S. Code requires repayment with certain exceptions. As a general rule, repayment of any unearned portion of a bonus will be sought. 12. To ensure all requirements and timelines are met, visit the following SRB page of the Navy Personnel Command website at http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/ Pages/SRB.aspx. 13. The point of contact for a Sailor who has reenlisted and has not received their SRB payment or has questions concerning the taxation of their SRB and annual installments, is the servicing pay office or personnel support detachment of the Sailor. SRB tax information is also discussed in DoD FMR, Volume 7A, Chapter 44, table 44-1, rule 7. The point of contact for a Sailor with questions regarding the SRB program or any information on their on- line personnel account is their CCC. For technical questions or clarification, CCCs, not individual Sailors, are encouraged to contact the Community Management Support Branch, BUPERS-328, at (901) 874-3215 or (901) 874- 3915/DSN 882 or via e-mail at mill_incen_pays(at)navy.mil or contact the SRB Help Desk at (901) 874-2526/DSN 882. 14. We will continue to assess retention behavior and adjust SRB award levels accordingly. 15. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or canceled, whichever comes first. 16.

  18. Three nuclear-powered attack submarines are currently not operational, according to U.S. Navy officials, proving the service is still working to reduce its backlog of submarines that require maintenance. The spotlight has been on the USS Boise, which has now been out of service for four years. Vice Chief of Naval Operations Adm. William Moran told senators during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Wednesday that the Boise would enter a private shipyard in January, but two other submarines "are not certified to dive today." https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/us-navy-nuclear-powered-attack-submarines-certified-dive/story?id=59776219
  19. Hello, hopefully some of my smarter brethren can help me out with some MTS questions. I have heard that qualifying MTS gives you an additional MTS NEC. But I cannot find anything in writing about this. Does anyone know if this is true, and which NEC is it? Is it just the 9502 Instructor NEC? Also, the MTS qual card, 43100-7G, the newest revision; does not state any requirements to be designated as an MTS Mentor. Are those requirements written somewhere? The written exam says you get access granted via the NETC MTS Coordinator. Does anyone know how you get in contact with this person?

  21. VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) -- Sailors planning to take college courses in the new year using Tuition Assistance (TA) should submit requests before the holiday stand-down period to get a head-start on the review and approval process. According to counselors at the Navy College Virtual Education Center (NCVEC), the primary reason for problems with TA requests is late applications, and Sailors who get an early start on their applications have the best chance of having their requests approved. Service members are required to obtain approval for TA funding before the official start of a course. “December is the perfect time to select courses and apply for your Tuition Assistance/Navy College Program for Afloat College Education (NCPACE) Distance Learning (DL) funding,” said Chris Cruz, Navy Voluntary Education (VOLED) Virtual Education Capabilities director. “TA/NCPACE DL applications may be created, command approved, and submitted in the My Education module (https://myeducation.netc.navy.mil) website as early as 120 days, but no later than 14 days in advance of your school’s published term start date.” Cruz added that TA applications are funded on a first-come, first-served basis - there’s no risk in applying early; the NCVEC can modify or cancel the TA voucher after the fact if necessary with no harm to the Sailor. “If TA requests are received by the VOLED team on or after the class begins, the TA requests will be automatically denied in accordance with policy guidelines, putting Sailors in a potentially tough financial situation if the course is not dropped," said Cruz. "That’s why early TA submission, coupled with a well-defined education/degree plan is strongly recommended.” Sailors planning to attend college classes are required to complete the following training (once per naval career): 1) “Navy Tuition Assistance” training: This covers Navy TA policy and the WebTA application process. For NCPACE, “NCPACE Policy and Procedures” training covers the NCPACE DL policy and application process. 2) “Navy Virtual Counseling 101” training: This helps Sailors establish education and career goals, select and apply to an academic institution, and understand the higher education life cycle. This training will help prepare for academic counseling with a Navy college education counselor. These training products are available in the My Education section of the Navy College Program website. More details can be found in NAVADMIN 243/17, also on the website. Before completing each higher education level - certificate, associate's, bachelor's, or masters - Sailors must also complete the following: 1) Receive academic counseling from a Navy College Virtual Education Center (NCVEC) or overseas Navy College Office (NCO) counselor. Sailors may schedule appointments via the online appointment scheduling tool on the My Navy Portal website at https://www.mnp.navy.mil/group/training-education-qualifications/appointment-scheduler. 2) At a minimum, upload an unofficial education plan to your My Education record before enrolling in any classes. Once an official education plan or Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges Degree Network System (SOCDNS) Student Agreement is issued by your academic institution, please upload to My Education. This is required after the first nine semester hours, or equivalent, of instruction. Sailors may take advantage of Expedited TA/NCPACE DL funding if they meet the following conditions: 1) The Sailor’s Academic Institution (AI) has uploaded their courses and tuition costs in the Academic Institution Module (AIM) on the Navy College Program website. 2) The Sailor selected course and tuition information for their application from the My Education course and tuition pick lists, rather than manually entering in courses. Expedited funding cannot happen if the Sailor made manual entries. 3) All Navy requirements are met (training, counseling, EAOS, no missing grades, etc.) 4) The application is command approved. Once the application process is complete, My Education automatically sends the service member a link within My Education to locate and print the authorization voucher for signing and delivery to the AI. For additional information on the Navy College Program, visit www.navycollege.navy.mil to start the education process, complete required training, submit a Help Request through the Navy College Virtual Education Center (NCVEC), initiate a Live Chat session, or review knowledge management articles. The NCVEC can be reached Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Eastern Time toll free 1-877-838-1659; DSN 492-4684. For OCONUS Navy College Office (NCO) information, visit: https://www.navycollege.navy.mil/contact.htm. The Navy College Program Mobile Application offers access to the NCP planning tools, including required training and the counseling scheduler. Sailors can download the app from iTunes or Google Play store at no cost. Search ‘NCP App’ in the stores. The URL for the Navy College Program website is: https://www.navycollege.navy.mil. An additional program - Navy Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (Navy COOL), provides information about licenses and certifications applicable to all Navy occupations, offering resources and funding to help Sailors gain appropriate civilian desired, and in many cases required, credentials. For more information about Navy COOL, visit www.cool.navy.mil/ or call (850) 452-6683. Navy College Program improvements are part of the Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education (MPT&E) Transformation, a modernization effort that will overhaul the way human resources services are provided to all Sailors, their families, and future recruits. Over the next several years, the Transformation will change how services are offered throughout a Sailor's entire "Hire-to-Retire" life cycle, by streamlining processes and systems to improve the speed, accuracy, and quality of HR services.
  22. BATH, Maine (NNS) -- The future USS Lyndon B. Johnson (DDG 1002) was launched Dec. 9 at General Dynamics-Bath Iron Works shipyard. The process of launching a ship is a multi-day process that includes moving the ship from the land level facility to the dry dock which is then slowly flooded until the ship is afloat. With the ship in the water, final outfitting and production can commence. "It’s important for the DDG 1000 program and shipyard to reach this major milestone,” said Capt. Kevin Smith, DDG 1000 program manager, Program Executive Office (PEO) Ships. "With the first two ships of the class underway, we are excited to continue the next phase of construction of the future Lyndon B. Johnson." Zumwalt-class destroyers feature a state-of-the-art electric propulsion system, wave-piercing tumblehome hull, stealth design and are equipped with the most advanced warfighting technology and weaponry. These ships will be capable of performing a range of deterrence, power projection, sea control, and command and control missions while allowing the Navy to evolve with new systems and missions. "The crew of Lyndon B. Johnson looks forward to bringing this great warship honoring our 36th President to life, and we're proud to have the opportunity to be present for this important step in the ship's construction,” said Capt. Jeremy Gray, prospective commanding officer, DDG 1002. “It is truly impressive to see the ship afloat in the Kennebec River for the first time and we look forward to taking her to sea." The future Lyndon B. Johnson is the third and final DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class ship, and is scheduled to be christened in the spring of 2019. 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, special mission and support ships, and special warfare craft.
  23. The abrupt shuttering of an Army-run secure document-sharing service is grinding to a snail’s pace work done by the Navy’s lawyers, doctors, personnel administrators, law enforcement and even the U.S. Naval Academy Band. The Army turned off its Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) Safe Access File Exchange system, called SAFE by users, a month ago because of the potential security risk, Kerensa Crum, an AMRDEC spokesperson, told USNI News. The shutdown was a preventative measure, Crum said, and the Army is not aware of any data breach because of the risk. https://news.usni.org/2018/12/03/39076
