RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN amends reference (f) and solicits 
motivated officer (O3-O5) and enlisted (E4-E9) applicants for 
duty with the United States National Ceremonial Guard (USNCG). 
Interested volunteers, who meet the criteria described below and 
in references (a) through (c), are eligible to apply for billets 
as early as 15 months from their projected rotation date. 
 
2.  Enlisted approved applicants are eligible to receive one of 
two Special Duty Assignment Pays, either as a Recruit Division 
Commander (NEC-8RDC) (limited billets) or as Staff Ceremonial 
Specialist. 
 
3.  Established in 1931, the USNCG is a Presidential support unit 
in line with references (b) and (c) and is the official 
ceremonial unit of the Navy.  Located in Washington, D.C., the 
primary mission of the USNCG is to represent the service in 
Presidential, Joint Armed Forces, Navy, and public ceremonies in 
the National Capital Region and around the world.  Members of the 
USNCG participate in some of the most prestigious ceremonies 
including Presidential inaugurations, State Funerals, White House 
ceremonies, and arrival ceremonies for foreign officials in our 
Nation's capital.  In addition, the USNCG conducts all funeral 
honors for Navy personnel and their dependents buried in the 
Arlington National Cemetery.  Elements of the command, such as 
the U.S. Navy Drill Team and the U.S. Navy Color Guard, regularly 
represent the Navy in public events (Navy Weeks, Fleet Weeks, 
public parades, ship's commissioning ceremonies, and professional 
sporting events) across the country. 
 
4.  Volunteers (both officer and enlisted) must be strong leaders 
who are ready to serve as role models to large numbers of junior 
Sailors.  Volunteers must always operate with maturity and tact 
and be exceptional and disciplined representatives of the U.S. 
Navy, both on and off duty.  They must have an impeccable 
appearance, excellent military bearing, and meet the following 
height requirements (waiverable by USNCG commanding officer (CO) 
on a case-by-case basis for exceptional candidates): 
    a.  Male:  minimum 6 feet. 
    b.  Female:  minimum 5 feet 10 inches. 
 
5.  Volunteers (both officer and enlisted) must meet the minimum 
qualifications contained in references (a) through (c) and the 
following additional requirements: 
    a.  No driving under the influence or driving while 
intoxicated convictions within the last 5 years. 
    b.  No excessive debt.  The command financial specialist 
should evaluate the debt-to-income ratio of the member. 
    c.  Be able to participate in public ceremonies without 
glasses (contact lenses are acceptable).  While assigned to the 
USNCG, Navy medicine is authorized to provide prescription 
contact lenses at the government's expense in line with reference 
(d). 
    d.  Be capable of strenuous marching, drilling, and prolonged 
standing. 
    e.  Must be a U.S. citizen and hold at minimum a valid secret 
clearance. 
    f.  No trait below 3.0 for the past three evaluation periods. 
    g.  Overall physical fitness test category score is a good 
low or higher and within body composition assessment standards. 
    h.  Must be able to shave to conduct Navy and Joint 
ceremonies on a routine basis.  Due to mission requirements and 
tasking, the USNCG must maintain a tighter standard than is 
outlined in reference (e).  Members diagnosed with 
Pseudofolliculitis barbae, please contact the USNCG to discuss 
the possibility of a waiver. 
 
6.  Interested enlisted candidates meeting the above requirements 
must submit a completed Enlisted Personnel Action Request 
(NAVPERS 1306/7) to their rating detailer via their CO, 
requesting release to shore special programs for assignment to 
the USNCG.  Once released, the Shore Special Programs Branch 
(PERS-4010) detailer will release a screening message to the 
command with application requirements.  Once the application 
package is received and reviewed, a telephone interview will be 
arranged with the USNCG command master chief.  Because of the 
challenging nature of duty onboard the USNCG, enlisted candidates 
whose records reflect that they have succeeded in this assignment 
may be viewed positively on future enlisted advancement boards. 
 
7.  Interested officers should contact their detailer and review 
references (a) through (c) for specific requirements.  A 
telephone interview will be arranged with the USNCG CO and the 
following additional requirements: 
    a.  Submit a copy of the last three fitness reports. 
    b.  Full-length official photograph in the uniform of the day. 
    c.  Last three performance fitness assessment cycle results. 
 
8.  Additional information may be found on the USNCG website at:

Ceremonial-Guard/ or https://www.facebook.com/usnceremonialguard/.

9.  This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or canceled, 
whichever comes first.
