Public Works project manager Jim Hertzog is a busy man. With experience in utilities and energy management, not to mention time as a Navy Submariner, these days heโ€™s hot at work overseeing the privatization of utility distribution systems on naval installations. A , Jim is also a current reservist and Baltimore native. The Old Dominion University and The George Washington University alum, Jim says his active duty time prepared him well for : โ€œWhen I left active duty, I knew that Iโ€™d stay in the defense industry to some degree and support from an engineering or project management role. The Navy Nuclear Power program was tough to say the least and prepared me to do more and assume higher positions. Being a federal employee for NAVFAC has been extremely rewarding knowing that I make a difference every time I complete a project.โ€

The Navy is really blessed when a person devotes an entire military career in service to the Fleet, but then comes back for more. Such is the case of Steve Cook, one of our fine OICC PNS directors. after first putting in 30 years as a reservist in the civil engineer corps, with duty stations that took him from Virginia and Hawaii to California and Maine, Steve runs the construction division. From contract administration, quality assurance and safety oversight, his team is hands-on 24/7 with the Navyโ€™s most important capital investment program, SIOP. Says Steve, โ€œIt is a privilege to be able to continue to serve our Navy and Nation, to be part of something much bigger than myself, and to be a small but significant contributor to the protection of Americaโ€™s prosperity, security and future."

Safe to say the Navy has shown Raymond Ralls a lot of our great country. Hailing from Walla Walla, Washington, this former Navy Hospital Corpsman is as a construction manager supervisor with our NAVFAC Atlantic OICC PNSY element. Responsible for $2 billion in construction projects onboard Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, heโ€™s part of the Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP). The work is never dull, often with new challenges each day, but he revels in advancing the Navyโ€™s once-in-a-century investment to reconfigure, modernize and optimize the countryโ€™s four public shipyards. From maintaining the health of individual Sailors, to the health of facilities that will take the Fleet into the future, Raymond says โ€œI still serve because I feel I can continue to make a difference even out of uniform. I also enjoy being around the structure of the navy and meeting new people. The Navy offered me an extended family and I feel that way with our family believe that today."

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŽ–๐Ÿ“ข Spotlight: Michael Morris ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŽ–๐Ÿ“ข

This Veterans Day, we proudly honor one of our dedicated veterans who continues to serve his country and community with unwavering dedication. Michael was born in Portsmouth, NH, and grew up in Kittery, ME, later moving to Plattsburg, NY. In 1996, he joined the Army to serve as a 25M Multimedia Illustrator. His service with the U.S. Army included assignments to USAREUR G2, the 411th Base Support Battalion, and 26th Area Support Group in Heidelberg, Germany from 1996-2000, supporting overseas military operations. In the summer of 2000, he was assigned to the School of the Americas, later called Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, to support the school's mission at Fort Moore, GA (Previously Fort Benning).

In 2001, the Secretary of Army released Michael from his military obligation to allow him to transition to civilian life and start a career as a Visual Information Specialist for the Joint Multinational Training Command in Heidelberg, Germany, where he worked from July 2001 to April 2006.

Following his service, Michael held various important positions that further showcased his unwavering commitment to public affairs and visual information:

- Visual Information Specialist at Naval Network Warfare Command from April 2006 to June 2008.

- Lead Multimedia Graphics Information Specialist at U.S Africa Command, where he ran the Visual Department from June 2008 to October 2011.

- Public Affairs/Visual Information Specialist at Naval Network Warfare Command from October 2011 to July 2015.

- Public Affairs/Visual Information Specialist at Naval Information Forces from July 2015 to July 2016.

From July 2016 to August 2018, Michael took on the role of Public Affairs/Editor for Sea & Shore Magazine at the Naval Safety Center.

Currently, he holds the position of Deputy Public Affairs Officer for NAVFAC Atlantic, where he plays a crucial role in fostering effective communication with both the public and the command. His unwavering dedication to service in his civilian career has made a lasting and positive impact on the defense efforts of our nation.

On this Veterans Day, let's salute Michael Morris for his enduring commitment to serving our country and community. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŽ‰

Lily Santiago is a perfect example of the great opportunities the Navy can afford the individual, and how that individual can make the Navy stronger. Right after graduating from high school, Lily headed for bootcamp and then to her first duty station, HSL-40 out of Mayport, Florida. Choosing to become an aviation maintenance administrationman, Lily excelled at managing aircraft maintenance, crucial to keeping our Navyโ€™s aircraft fit for service. Following tours aboard USS John F. Kennedy and several fighter squadrons, she traded making sure our Navy has the aircraft it needs to making sure NAVFAC can tap into the human resource assets needed to support the Fleet. A Saint Leo University University alum, she has been nominated for the Department of the Navy Civilian Human Resources Community Award for Excellence.

James Partamian would like us to call him โ€œChainsaw,โ€ but that would make him seem mean and he rarely has cause to use such equipment NAVFAC Atlantic Expeditionary Director when not in the field. His ability to flex to fit the needs of the organization is what makes him perfect for the job. On active duty, he served during Desert Storm as a truck driver. Following college, he became as engineer officer in the Army National Guard. Heโ€™s as a government employee, but for the last decade heโ€™s segued into civil affairs, currently serving as the commanding officer of 437th Civil Affairs Battalion - Fort Story, VA . So while heโ€™s , heโ€™s still providing facilities, products and services to Navy and Joint commanders, off installation during all phases of military operations, and during contingencies at Naval installations.

It might be safe to call Lana Taylor Jester a Seabeeโ€™s Seabee. So committed to serving her country, she signed up for the Navy under the Delayed Entry Program when she was just 16 years old! Becoming a Seabee a year later on December 7th--the anniversary of Pearl Harbor--Lana soon learned she was just one of 500 female Seabees worldwide, working as a construction mechanic. Sheโ€™s been a trailblazing make-it-happen kind of person living up to the Seabeesโ€™ motto: "CONSTRUIMUS, BATUIMUSโ€ or โ€œWe build, We fight.โ€ One of the first female Seabees to ever to deploy into combat during Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm, and as a Reservist no less, she went on to support several naval mobile construction battalions supporting Operation Joint Endeavor and Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom. While work at NAVFAC might not be quite so dirty, Lana is , and still personifying that Seabee ethos. Public Works colleagues call this management analyst โ€œThe Gatekeeperโ€ because she does the same thing she did on active duty โ€“ working tenaciously to support the Fleet, becoming indispensable in the process. Lana may have hung up the uniform, but enjoys working for the Navy still, joking that โ€œold habits are hard to break!โ€

Not all NAVFAC Atlantic Veterans were Sailors โ€“ we love all the branches of service as Jim Tarr can attest. Where he once served as a US.Army Topographic Intelligence Specialist in Schwetzingen, Germany, he is as a hydrogeologist today, investigating groundwater contamination at installations and supporting field agents around the globe. Beyond the work, this University of Maine opted for a lifetime of serviceโ€”30 years in the environmental field, so far!--carrying on what is a family tradition. His dad, Master Sgt. Clyde Tarr (USAF, ret.), was a WWII B-17 tail gunner and Distinguished Flying Cross recipient. In honor of his dad, Jim continues to support the country, taking care of the Fleet: โ€œI love my career with NAVFAC and will continue to serve!โ€

Saturday, November 11 marks Veterans Day, an important day distinct from Memorial Day observed in May. While we honor the fallen on Memorial Day, paying tribute to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country, Veterans Day honors the service of all Veterans. ๐ŸŽ–๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Marking the first anniversary of the end of World War I, Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day, but in 1954 President Dwight D. Eisenhower changed the name of this national holiday to embrace all of our nationโ€™s servicemembers, living or dead, regardless of whether their service was in a time of war, or blessedly, during a period of peace. This is why there is no apostrophe โ€“ we donโ€™t observe Veteranโ€™s Day or Veteransโ€™ Day, because it doesnโ€™t belong to just one type, or multiple types of Vets. It honors, all of those who have enlisted or received a commission in the military.

In reading more about the history of Veterans Day, the word that resonates so strongly to me is service--why men and women have answered the call, and how they look back on that service. It is appropriate that the theme of this yearโ€™s Veterans Administration poster contest is simply, โ€œSERVICE.โ€ The VA says this is because โ€œVeterans are proud of their military service in defending our Nation. Honor reflects the military value and tradition of answering the call to duty. There is distinct honor in serving to protect our way of life and the Constitution of the United States of America.โ€ ๐Ÿ“œ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

What amazes me is that so many of the nearly 19 million Veterans today have gone on to serve againโ€”as teachers, healthcare providers, first responders, local and state government employees and yes, as Federal Service civilians. Right here at NAVFAC Atlantic, we have more than 120 Veterans on staff advancing the needs of the Fleet. Thatโ€™s nearly 20% of our workforce! Some of those youโ€™ll hear more about this week on our Facebook profile โ€“ the popular ๐Ÿ™Œ series continues with some truly remarkable stories. PAO tells me that many more humbly chose not to participate and while I absolutely respect that personal choice, I will say this: ๐Ÿ—ฃ your service has meaning and is inspiration to those who will come behind you.

A recent poll shows that more than 7 in 10 Americans, regardless of political affiliation, have confidence that Veterans do what is right for our country. At the same time, more than half of Americans havenโ€™t spoken to a Veteran about their service in the last year. Additionally, 57% of Americans donโ€™t count a Veteran among their social networking contacts and even if presented with the opportunity, wouldnโ€™t know what to say to a Veteran about their service. Unsurprisingly, all branches of our military continue to have recruiting issues with the Navy falling more than 6,000 short of their goal this year. I encourage you to share your stories, not just on Veterans Day or in social media; let the people you meet know about your time in uniform and how you continue to serve to this day. You never know how your service might inspire those who come behind you.

I am proud to wear the uniform of a United States Sailor, carrying on in the tradition of millions before me. I thank you all for your service and am honored to be working alongside you.๐Ÿ—ฝ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

๐ŸŽ‰ November is Native American Heritage Month! ๐ŸŽ‰ Also known as and , it's a time to celebrate the rich history, culture, and contributions of Indigenous people.

For 2023, the Society of American Indian Government Employees chose the theme "Tribal Nations Soaring to New Heights." ๐Ÿฆ… This theme honors the incredible legacy of Mohawk ironworkers who have played a vital role in building iconic North American landmarks like the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, George Washington Bridge, and the World Trade Center. The Mohawk ironworking tradition began in the 1880s, earning them the nickname "skywalkers" for their fearless work on high steel. In the 1960s, they were pivotal in constructing the World Trade Center, and after 9/11, their descendants returned to aid in rescue and cleanup at Ground Zero. Notably, Mohawk ironworkers also contributed to the construction of the new Freedom Tower, now known as One World Trade Center. Their story reflects a legacy of professionalism and selfless service that continues to inspire future generations. ๐Ÿ—๏ธ๐Ÿ—ฝ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

**Breast Cancer Awareness Month โ€“ Breast Cancer is an equal opportunity threat ๐Ÿ‘ซ

I'm determined to raise awareness about breast cancer, with a special focus on male breast cancer, a cause close to my heart. ๐Ÿ’™ October 2nd marked the fifth anniversary of my initial doctor's visit to investigate a lump I discovered while changing my T-shirt. ๐Ÿฉบ

While breast cancer is often associated with women's health, it doesn't discriminate โ€“ approximately 1% of new cases each year affect men. So, even though the odds are relatively low, we're not exempt from the possibility. Shockingly, the mortality rate for men is actually higher than that for women. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ This is exacerbated by a lack of awareness among men, leading us to ignore symptoms and mistakenly believe that it couldn't be breast cancer. This mindset often results in delayed treatment and decreased chances of survival. ๐Ÿšซ

Male breast cancer is typically identified as a firm lump beneath the ni**le and ar**la. Most men diagnosed with this condition are over the age of 50; I was 56 when I first noticed the lump. Men, it's crucial to take this seriously. Regrettably, I didn't seek medical attention the first time I discovered the lump, dismissing it. It was only after I felt it again two months later and realized it hadn't disappeared that I took it seriously and contacted my doctor. Thankfully, my doctor shared my concern, and within a week, I underwent a mammogram and ultrasound (and no, mammograms are far from enjoyable, but they can save your life). ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿ“…

A week later, a biopsy confirmed that I had cancer, specifically Stage 1A Breast Cancer. In my case, I was fortunate enough to require only surgery, without chemotherapy or radiation. Many men aren't as lucky simply because they fail to conduct regular self-exams and report any unusual findings to their doctors in a timely manner. Today, I take a small white pill every day that reduces my risk of recurrence. I don't want this experience for you. In solidarity this October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I implore my fellow men to start performing self-exams and educate themselves about this on the CDC website. Do it for your own health! ๐Ÿฉบ๐Ÿ’ช

A native of Trinidad & Tobago, she came to the U.S. as a child more than 24 years ago never realizing she'd one day don the sacred colors of our country.

๐ŸŒŸ October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) ๐ŸŒŸ

Led by the U.S. Department of Laborโ€™s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), NDEAM celebrates the incredible contributions of Americaโ€™s workers with disabilities to our nation each and every day. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

At NAVFAC Atlantic, we proudly reaffirm our commitment to recruiting, retaining, and advancing individuals with disabilities throughout our workforce. ๐Ÿข๐Ÿค

This observance has a deep history, dating back to the end of World War II when thousands of injured Service members returned home. In 1945, the U.S. government recognized the importance of educating the public about disabilities and employment, leading to the declaration of the first week of October as "National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week" under Public Law 176. ๐Ÿ“œ

In 1962, the word 'physically' was removed to acknowledge the contributions of people with various disabilities. The observance was expanded to a month and renamed National Disability Employment Awareness Month in 1988. ๐Ÿ—“๏ธ

At NAVFAC Atlantic, we cherish the unique skills and capabilities each person brings to their employment. We are dedicated to ensuring equity, dignity, respect, and cooperation among all individuals in our workforce as we strive to build an inclusive future for total force readiness. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿข

Let's celebrate NDEAM by acknowledging the talents and contributions of individuals with disabilities and fostering an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ™Œ
