  2. WASHINGTON — Navy Secretary Richard Spencer has called for an expanded review of the Navy’s Judge Advocate General Corps to include an assessment of the Marines’ Judge Advocates after a recent court-martial raised concerns about the service’s ability to handle legal cases effectively. Spencer issued a memo Wednesday that directs Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday and Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger to conduct a comprehensive review of their legal corps, calling it a “periodic review” to ensure readiness and their ability to support the Navy’s mission. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/navy-secretary-calls-for-expanded-review-of-navy-marines-jag-corps-1.595607
  3. WASHINGTON – The Navy’s top SEAL has ordered Naval Special Warfare Command to adopt stringent grooming and uniform standards required throughout the rest of the service, telling his top commanders “that a portion of this force is ethically misaligned with our culture.” In a memorandum issued Tuesday to senior SEAL commanders, Rear Adm. Collin Green, the commander of Naval Special Warfare Command, blamed a lack of leadership for a recent string of high-profile SEAL scandals that point to ethical problems within the ranks of the Navy’s elite force. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/navy-s-top-seal-orders-adoption-of-grooming-and-uniform-standards-blames-leadership-for-ethically-misaligned-troops-1.595637

This NAVADMIN provides transition assistance for the afloat community to assist the Navy in converting to Risk Management Framework (RMF) by 31 December 2020. This RMF Afloat way ahead process is intended to provide an alternative solution for attaining RMF site authorizations for ships, which in turn will allow for a deliberate RMF transition of the systems hosted on those ships. 2. Ships under U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFF), Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet (COMPACFLT) and Military Sealift Command (MSC) with Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) Authorizations to Operate (ATO) that expire on or before 1 January 2020 are authorized to pursue an Afloat RMF Bridge Conversion (RBC). The intent of the Afloat RBC is to utilize the assessed and certified risk of a DIACAP submission, and issue an RMF ATO instead of a DIACAP ATO. The Afloat RBC ATO will be issued for no more than 12 months. All ships under the scope of this NAVADMIN will be required to transition to full RMF on or before the Authorization Termination Date (ATD) of their respective RBC. Amplifying guidance is as follows: a. The Package Submitting Officer (PSO) will process the package for a DIACAP Certification Determination (CD) issuance from the Navy Security Control Assessor for impacted ships as per references (c) and (d). b. The DIACAP CD shall be no older than 180 days. c. Following the CD issuance, the PSO will process the package for an Afloat RBC following reference (d). d. All DIACAP artifacts will be in compliance with reference (d). e. The DIACAP artifacts that accompanied the DIACAP submission will be used to leverage Afloat RBCs. 3. Programs outside of the afloat community are eligible for additional new alternate RMF transition processes, which are detailed in reference (e). 4. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until cancelled or superseded. 5. Released by VADM Matthew J.

I am humbled and honored to be your Chief of Naval Operations. Together, we are part of the greatest Navy in the world. Everyone on our team - Officers and Enlisted Sailors, Active and Reserve, Uniformed and Civilian - plays an important part in making sure we not only remain the greatest Navy in the world, but that we get even better. 2. For the first time in a very long time, we face serious challenges at sea around the world. For decades, we have taken for granted that no other blue- water navy would dare take us on. That�s no longer true. 3. The U.S. Navy will continue to be a global force for security and stability. But there are other nations who would use their maritime forces to threaten the freedom of the seas, to intimidate their neighbors, or to coerce others in violation of international law. Those maritime forces are growing in numbers and in strength. Still others know they cannot take us on at sea, but will try to attack our Navy in areas like cyber. 4. Rapidly modernizing our Navy and keeping pace with technology will remain a priority for us. However, I still believe what my first Chief told me: that people are our most important weapons system. A well-trained force is our competitive advantage. I look forward to hearing your feedback to make improvements for Sailors and their families. 5. I have a great sense of urgency to get after solutions to the challenges we face. In the coming weeks, my FIRST priority will be visiting with many of you. I will work with our leaders in the fleets, with our Marine Corps teammates, and with our other joint service and international partners as we develop our way ahead to meet these challenges. 6. We will question our assumptions. We will think differently about the competition we are now in. We will be the Navy the nation needs now and we will build the Navy the nation needs to fight and win in the future. 7. What remains constant are our core values of honor, courage and commitment. We will remain true to our core attributes of integrity, accountability, initiative and toughness. We will remain the premier Navy in the world and I know we will be even better tomorrow than we are today. 8. Further detailed guidance will be issued within 45 days. 9. Thank you for all you do for our Navy and for each other. I�ll see you out in the fleet. 10. Released by ADM M. M. Gilday, Chief of Naval Operations.// BT #0001 NNNN UNCLASSIFIED//

  8. AUSTIN, Texas – Five people, including a former Army civilian, face federal charges in an international scam that drained millions of dollars from the bank accounts of older, disabled veterans, the Department of Justice announced Wednesday. The 14-count indictment unsealed Wednesday in San Antonio, Texas, charges five people living in the United States and the Philippines with coordinating an identity-theft and fraud scheme targeting servicemembers and veterans, including a former prisoner of war, using personal information stolen by a former civilian employee at a U.S. Army base in Korea. https://www.stripes.com/news/veterans/five-indicted-for-stealing-millions-of-dollars-from-disabled-veterans-1.595182
  9. WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy has released more details from its 2019 Summary of the Navy Public Private Venture (PPV) Housing ‘Out of Cycle’ Survey, conducted earlier this year based on concerns with privatized family housing. The results of the survey, conducted April 2-May 9 by CEL & Associates for Commander, Navy Installations Command, are available here. In July, the Navy released a redacted version of the “out of cycle” survey to allow PPV partners enough time to develop corrective action plans. The Navy has released the rest of the results to enhance transparency for residents who participated, now that the housing providers have identified corrective actions. The action plans are in progress or will soon begin, once they're reviewed by Navy business agreement managers and Navy region and installation leadership. Each installation action plan is tied to specific concerns raised by residents in the out-of-cycle survey that warrant action by installation property managers. “The Department of the Navy team is committed to improving the quality and care for the housing provided to our Sailors and their families, which they deserve for their service to our Nation,” said Lucian Niemeyer, acting assistant secretary of the Navy (Energy, Installations and Environment). “Resident satisfaction surveys provide valuable feedback by location and enable the Navy and PPV partners to create and implement corrective action plans to focus our efforts where they are needed most,” he noted. “We are releasing additional survey information at this point for two reasons," Niemeyer continued. "We wanted our partners to have a chance to review the survey results and to propose plans for improving quality and service, which they have proactively accomplished. Second, we want to maintain transparency and accountability to our military families. "We will continue to encourage our residents to care for their homes and provide constructive feedback when they are concerned with the quality of workmanship or the customer service of our partners," Niemeyer said. “These survey results are critical,” said Rear Adm. John W. Korka, commander, Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC). “They substantiated areas of concern and will guide the next steps necessary, particularly in implementing and carrying out corrective action plans and accountability across the PPV program.” CEL & Associates provided a corrective action plan template and training on how to use the template to both the partner property manager and the Navy Housing Service Center. For this survey, the Navy raised the threshold for corrective action plans to 75 points, more stringent than earlier surveys' standard of 70 points. Based on this survey, any neighborhood with a score below 75 (rated average to very poor) is required to develop a plan of action addressing residents’ concerns. The PPV partner submitted this document to the appropriate business agreement manager before the deadline earlier this week. Navy Housing Service Center staff are also developing and implementing action plans for all Navy-specific issues at each installation. “I want to thank the Sailors and their families who spent their time to take the survey,” said Vice Adm. Mary M. Jackson, commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC). “They have helped us tremendously in focusing on residents’ concerns, and it is important that they see the full results. Now it is our responsibility to stay engaged with our PPV partners as the advocates for Sailors and their families.” Each military service has different business-agreement constructs, and the Navy business arrangements use limited liability companies (LLCs). The Navy is the non-managing member and the Public Private Venture housing partners are the managing members of each LLC. The Navy’s six PPV partners are Balfour Beatty, Clark, Hunt, Landmark, Lincoln and Patrician. Balfour Beatty operates about 8,700 family housing units. Project NORTHEAST includes seven installations in Navy Region Mid-Atlantic, and project SOUTHEAST includes 11 installations in Navy Region Southeast. Clark operates about 2,400 unaccompanied units at Pacific Beacon, San Diego, in project San Diego Unaccompanied Housing in Navy Region Southwest. Hunt operates roughly 10,500 family housing units and about 3,600 unaccompanied units. Project HAWAII includes two installations in Navy Region Hawaii. Project KINGSVILLE II is one installation in Navy Region Southeast. Project MIDWEST includes three installations in Navy Region Mid-Atlantic. Project NORTHWEST includes three installations in Navy Region Northwest. The unaccompanied units are in Hampton Roads, Norfolk, Virginia, in project Hampton Roads Unaccompanied Housing in Navy Region Mid-Atlantic. Lincoln operates about 18,800 family housing units. Project Mid-Atlantic San Diego is a combined installation project in Naval District Washington. Project MID-ATLANTIC includes six installations in Navy Region Mid-Atlantic. Project SAN DIEGO includes seven installations in Navy Region Southwest. Patrician operates about 900 family housing units at one installation, project NEW ORLEANS in Navy Region Southeast. Landmark’s regular 2019 resident satisfaction survey was in progress, so they were not included in the 2019 “out of cycle” survey. Landmark operates approximately 400 family housing units. Project SOUTH TEXAS includes two installations in Navy Region Southeast. Local Housing Service Center contact information is available at www.cnic.navy.mil/ContactHousing. Residents who have questions about privatized housing can contact Navy Housing Headquarters at NavyHousingHQ@navy.mil

  13. E3-E5 Sailors participating in Reserve Cycle 105 or Active Duty Cycle 244 must validate their advancement worksheet to ensure Final Multiple Score and eligibility factors are correct. In the past, the process was done with paper worksheets and was a fully manual procedure. Now, the online Enlisted Advancement Worksheet (EAW) allows quick access online for Education Services Officers (ESOs), command representatives and Sailors. EAW is automated and pulls from authoritative data. Ships at sea with disconnected operationas will continue to use paper worksheet validation processes, with ashore support to complete each Sailor's EAW. For information on how to access and validate your EAW, check out the EAW tutorials on the NSIPS splash page. https://nsipsprod-sdni.nmci.navy.mil/nsipsclo/jsp/index.jsp Your EAW will be locked after you take the exam, at which time all data and information will be transferred back to the Navy Enlisted Advancement System for processing. Your ESO has to route the EAW to you before you can validate and digitally sign. For more information, refer to NAVADMIN 316/18.
  14. WASHINGTON (Tribune News Service) — Former Air Force and Navy fighter pilots are calling on the military to begin cancer screenings for aviators as young as 30 because of an increase in deaths from the disease that they suspect may be tied to radiation emitted in the cockpit. “We are dropping like flies in our 50s from aggressive cancers,” said retired Air Force Col. Eric Nelson, a former F-15E Strike Eagle weapons officer. He cited prostate and esophageal cancers, lymphoma, and glioblastomas that have struck fellow pilots he knew, commanded or flew with. https://www.stripes.com/we-are-dropping-like-flies-ex-fighter-pilots-push-for-earlier-cancer-screening-1.594760

  23. Ok yall, piece of advice for some that have not done this in the past (my first time as well) scrub that membership list and e-mail board members. I e-mailed all the MC’s on one panel to ask for guidance. I asked first, if they had the time to help review my record and give me some info on how I can make myself more competitive. I already received responses (within hours) and I know why I didn’t get selected. (If you are good at putting puzzle pieces together, it should be easy for you to grasp the general reason after a few of them respond. So, my case. I have 99% of my ladr. My last eval was a 5.0 EP SOY. Bachelors, MTS, collaterals, you name it. I sent them my last 10 evals (all PO1’s) ESR/PSR, and the LTB I submitted. I have a hiccup eval from 2013-2014 that mentions EMI (no NJP) and a drop from 3.86 MP to 3.0 P. I always said, if I don’t make it, that is why. Wrong. Although few said that eval is a big detractor, same number of MC’s said that I have no hard breakouts on the following evals except my last. Basically, I have to work my behind off still for another hard breakout eval this year. In their words “the hard breakout evals “should” get you over the hump”. So like everyone else said, SSP is number one factor. The other stuff is tie breaker stuff. So get that membership list out if you have questions, and ask what else you can do. It is eye opening! And I am AMAZED at how willing they are to help out. See if you can get some guidance from this year’s board on what you were lacking. Don’t expect anything other than general answers, but like I said, piece that stuff together from all the responses and see if there is any correlation. Here’s to FY 21 and my 9th try!
