The command’s new Maintenance Operating Center reported 360 F/A-18 fighters were mission ready, up from 240 at the same time last year.

“That’s a 50% increase, it’s a huge increase in aircraft in the air,” Meier said.

This year, our NAS Oceana Navy Gold Star Program joined forces with the NEX Oceana Main management team to place our annual Navy Gold Star Holiday Tree of Remembrance along their hall of honor in between the food court and the main interior entrance to the NEX. The names that are on the tree are from families who have given written permission for their Fallen Hero to be honored publicly. This year, our tree features 100 names with Fallen Heroes representing the US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, US Marine Corps, and the US Coast Guard. The Navy Gold Star Program is proud to share this tree with all of the many visitors and patrons to the NEX as a reminder to please share in honoring and remembering our nation’s Fallen and their families during this holiday season. Please feel free to stop by, view our tree, and take a moment to write a note of thanks or remembrance on the gold stars on the adjacent table. The tree will remain in place at the NEX until 5 Jan. 2021.

“To our Fallen Heroes, this holiday season and always we are thankful for you and for your service and sacrifice while serving in our Nation’s Armed Forces. You are not forgotten.”

“To our Gold Star Family Members, we honor you and recognize your service and sacrifice in support of your Fallen Hero. We are deeply sorry for your loss and we are here to support you."

Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) 2nd Class Bradley Davis, assigned to Naval Auxiliary Landing Field Fentress, from La Center, Washington, says his everyday job as an ABH working at Fentress really helps him achieve his long term goals.

"We really focus on the fire fighting aspects of being an ABH here at Fentress, which is my favorite part of my job," said Davis. "Working here is going to be very beneficial to me in the long run because it is setting me up for my future and what I want to do after I ultimately get out the Navy."

Davis said that he joined the Navy to get out of his hometown and travel the world. He is thankful that the Navy has provided him with the opportunity to do both of those things during the six years that he has been in.

Chief Warrant Officer 4 Casey Nalley, officer in charge of Naval Auxiliary Landing Field Fentress, from Youngstown, Ohio, said there's many different ways junior Sailors can help themselves to have a more successful Naval career.

"Right now, I think the big issue that we are having is that junior Sailors aren't becoming subject matter experts," said Nalley. "So if you want to do well in the Navy; if you want to do well at your job, junior Sailors shouldn't get concerned with everything outside their area of responsibility, which is their rate. Learn your job well and once you become a subject matter expert, then you should start worrying about everything else."

Along with becoming a subject matter expert in their rate, junior Sailors should also be aware of what the Navy offers every Sailor to help advance their careers.

"The best advice I have for junior Sailors is to know all the programs the Navy has in place to help you excel and to take advantage of those programs," said Nalley. "Whether it is going to the Naval Academy, becoming a limited duty officer or a chief warrant officer, seaman to admiral, any of the programs like that, know what you are eligible for and apply for it. The worst that can happen is that they tell you no, you aren't ready for this, but hey, at least you can say you tried and you can always try again."

Earlier this week, Naval Air Station Oceana and Dam Neck Annex Chapels held their annual Lone Sailor & Marine Thanksgiving Dinner onboard NAS Oceana and Dam Neck Annex.

Though health protection measures prevented the usual dine-in experience, chapel staff and volunteers from the congregations were able to provide take-out Thanksgiving dinners to Sailors and Marines who may not have the opportunity to travel home for the holiday.

BREAKING: Hampton Roads Navy installations shift to HPCON Charlie

NORFOLK, Va. – Navy installations in Hampton Roads are being ordered to move to Health Protection Condition Level (HPCON) Charlie tomorrow.

The order issued today by Rear Adm. Charles W. Rock, Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic, follows an increase in both the number of COVID-19 cases and the positivity rate among the local military and civilian populations.

Installations in the region had been in HPCON Bravo, a less restrictive level, since Sept. 23.

The return to HPCON Charlie means military personnel in Hampton Roads must limit travel to and from their homes to their place of work, with stops only for essential services such as food, medicine and child care. Dining in at restaurants is not allowed, but take-out is authorized.

Military personnel are prohibited from using off-base services such as gyms and barber shops, but may continue to use those facilities on base.

Participation in team sports, going to amusement parks and attendance at parades or other public celebrations is also prohibited. Social gatherings in Sailors’ homes may not include more than 10 guests who don’t live there.

“The health and safety of our Navy family is our number one priority,” Rock said. “We’ve been fighting this virus for a long time, but we’ve still got some more work to do and can’t give in to fatigue. As we enter the holiday season, it’s more important than ever that we look out for each other and ensure our Sailors’ mental health and resiliency remains strong. Check in with one another often and take time to recharge.”

Travel restrictions associated with HPCON Charlie do not apply to personal leave and liberty travel outside of the local area for Navy service members, who must first receive approval from their commanding officers in accordance with Navy regulations. Sailors with specific questions about leave should contact their chain of command.

Religious Program Specialist 3rd Class Kayleigh Jones, from Manhattan, Kansas, says her everyday job as an RP helps her develop important skills, such as accounting and interpersonal communication.

"A lot of junior Sailors aren't comfortable going to chaplains for help because of their rank, but they're comfortable with us because we're at the same level as them," said Jones. "We still fall under the umbrella of confidentiality that chaplains are under. I like being able to help and care for people."

Not only does Jones assist in counseling at the chapel, she also works as the religious offering fund custodian, which has inspired her to pursue a bachelor's degree in accounting.

Aviation Machinist's Mates 2nd Class Danielle Carillo, from Apache Junction, Arizona, said she initially decided to join the Navy to follow her family's tradition of serving in the military.

"My uncle and my grandfather are both Marines," said Carillo. "I was also thinking about joining the Marines, but I ended up deciding that the Navy would be a better opportunity for me.”

Carillo, who was selected as VFA-32's Sailor of the Quarter, said she loves the excitement her job brings to her everyday.

"There’s so many crazy things that could happen on the flight deck," said Carillo. "I love being able to stand on the flight deck while jets are taking off. It is really just a huge adrenaline rush for me."
