SUBJ/NOTIFICATION OF DRUG TESTING PROGRAM REVISIONS - INITIATION OF FENTANYL 
AND NORFENTANYL TESTING//

REF/A/DOC/DOD/29MAR19//
REF/B/DOC/OPNAV/4JUN09//
NARR/REF A IS DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) NOTICE OF THE EXPANSION OF DOD 
PANEL OF TESTED DRUGS TO INCLUDE FENTANYL AND NORFENTANYL.  
REF B IS OPNAVINST 5350.4D, NAVY ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION AND 
CONTROL.

RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the expansion of the Department of Defenses 
ability to conduct random drug testing for the manufactured opiates Fentanyl 
and Norfentanyl.  Members determined as abusing drugs face punitive action 
under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Article 112a.  Effective 
immediately, Navy Drug Screening Laboratories will add Fentanyl and 
Norfentanyl to the standard drug testing panel for urinalysis samples 
submitted for testing as announced in reference (a).

2.  Navy policy remains clear with regards to substance abuse:  zero 
tolerance.  Sailors determined as using drugs shall be disciplined as 
appropriate and processed for administrative separation and may receive an 
Other than Honorable characterization of service which could affect their 
veteran benefits and employment opportunities.
Additionally, the Navy reports unlawful drug users to the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation for inclusion in the National Instant Criminal Background Check 
System, which impacts the ability to purchase firearms or ammunition.  It is 
the responsibility of every Sailor to ensure that he or she is diligent in 
avoiding intentional or accidental exposure to federally-prohibited 
substances.

3.  Point of contact is Mrs. LaNorfeia Parker, Director, Navy Drug Detection 
and Deterrence, OPNAV N17, at (901) 874-4249/DSN 882 or via e-mail at 
lanorfeia.parker(at)navy.mil.

4.  Released by Vice Admiral John B. Nowell, Jr, N1.//

      A lawyer representing Navy Seals who do not want to be vaccinated against Covid-19 told a federal appeals court Monday that their lawsuit over a now-withdrawn vaccine mandate isnโ€™t moot even though Congress passed legislation last December ordering the policy canceled. During arguments before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, attorney Heather Hacker said the service members still face the possibility of discipline over their refusal to get vaccinated and the government has not ruled out taking vaccination status into account when doling out future assignments.

      One of the questions a family member asked me: "Why is it always the Navy that is in the news when they talk about the military?" ๐Ÿ˜Ž WASHINGTON โ€” Navy divers were working to locate portions of the debris from the Chinese spy balloon that a U.S. fighter jet shot down six miles off the coast of South Carolina, defense officials said on Sunday. The recovery effort, which is expected to take days, began not long after debris from the balloon hit the water, a defense official said. He added that a Navy ship arrived on the scene soon after the balloon was shot down, and that other Navy and Coast Guard ships, which had been put on alert, were also sent to the scene.
