SUBJ/ALL HANDS MESSAGE FROM THE ACTING SECRETARY OF THE NAVY//

RMKS/1.  To all of our Sailors, Marines, Civilians, and Military Families, I 
am honored to return to the Navy-Marine Corps Team as your Acting Secretary.
From my years as an officer in the United States Navy, and my prior service 
as an enlisted Soldier in the United States Army, I am keenly aware of the 
sacrifices you make, and the dedication you show, every day in service to our 
Nation. Thank you for your dedicated service. I look forward to serving 
alongside you.
Today, with the extraordinary challenges posed by COVID-19, and the continual 
threats we face in a changing global security environment, our Nation needs 
you more than ever. Throughout this crisis, Sailors, Marines, and Civilians 
have stepped forward to protect the American people and our force. From New 
York to New Orleans, Los Angeles to Dallas, Maine to Guam, you have responded 
to the medical, logistics, engineering, and security requirements of our 
homeland during this time of need. And through it all, you have maintained 
the watch around the world.
Alongside Admiral Gilday and General Berger, we will maximize the resources 
and capability of the Department of the Navy to faithfully execute the 
priorities established by Secretary Esper in response to the COVID-19 crisis:
Protect our people, maintain warfighting readiness, and fully support the 
whole of government/whole of nation response to protect the American people.
You are the reason I am extremely confident that we will make mission. Many 
of you our active and reserve shipmates are closing the margin and saving 
lives through countless and selfless acts of individual initiative and 
collective teamwork. I am proud of you our Nation is proud of you. For as 
long as I have the privilege of serving as your Acting Secretary, I will do 
everything in my power to support your efforts and safety, and the safety and 
well-being of your families.
Working together and remaining ever vigilant of the rocks and shoals before 
us, I know we will help bring our Nation through the present challenge and 
all that may follow. It is what the Navy and Marine Corps have always done, 
and will always do, as long as there are people like you maintaining the 
watch.

2.  Released by the Honorable James E. McPherson, Acting Secretary of the 
Navy.//
