1st EWTGLANT Motorcycle Mentorship Program (MMP) Safety Ride this year. Seven riders of various experience successfully conducted a safety ride to reinforce good riding habits on various road types, a ferry ride to the Jamestown Settlement area and through the Colonial parkway to Yorktown for lunch before returning home. 130 miles covered interstate roads, multiple highways, parkways and in-town roadways which all offer different challenges to individual riders as well as group rides as a whole. Camaraderie was shared and great safety tips discussed over great food in historic Yorktown. Looking forward to more opportunities as the year moves along.

Honor and celebrate. One team, one fight!

This February, during #BlackHistoryMonth, we celebrate the achievements of Black Americans and recognize their countless contributions to our nation. Throughout our U.S. Navy's history, generations of Black Americans have played a vital role in making our Navy strong! To those who forged ahead and broke through barriers – thank you. And to the those who serve selflessly day-in and day-out – we are grateful for all that you do. We must be a shining example of a workforce centered on respect, inclusive of all. We must demand of each other that we treat everyone with dignity and respect. If you won’t do that, then our Navy is not the best place for you. We are one team, and we are one Navy.

12/01/2020

EWTGLANT’ s Instructor Development Program reached a major milestone with the completion of the inaugural Instructor Development Course. 7 days of instruction, facilitation, and exercises in adult learning and student-centric instructional methodologies imbued the first 11 graduates with the knowledge and skills to revolutionize the educational experience within the command. The course provided a foundation (of information) on how an adult learns, communicates, and thinks in the Information Age. With that understanding, the instructors can more effectively ensure that the students who graduate and complete EWTGLANT courses take with them the knowledge and skills necessary for their profession!
None of this was possible without MGySgt Mark Redding, Mr. Dave Conley, Mr. Joe Thompson, Mr. Frank Sanders, and all those that participated in the course development and ex*****on.
A special thanks to LCDR Rick Rivas who was the lead facilitator and architect of the course including the structure, curriculum, lesson material, exercises, and instructional methodologies that were utilized.

Navy and Marine Corps Must Integrate in the Information Warfare Domain

Capt Alainia Moomau, an instructor at EWTGLANT, was recently featured in Proceedings. She is the first US Marine to graduate from the Naval Information Warfighting Development Center (NIWDC) Warfare Tactics Instructor (WTI) program, and a testament to the naval integration efforts that have been espoused by the CNO and CMC. We are all proud of her recent and trailblazing accomplishments!

https://www.usni.org/magazines/proceedings/2020/november/navy-and-marine-corps-must-integrate-information-warfare-domain

If properly combined, Navy and Marine Corps’ integrated knowledge and capabilities could be much greater than the sum of their parts.

Mr. Joseph A. Thompson instructs students in the newly established Instructor Development Program (IDP) at EWTGLANT. The Instructor Development Program (IDP) is the foundation of certifying/branding quality instructors at EWTGLANT. This is the launch point from which instructors will incorporate new and innovative teaching methods that focus on student-centered learning versus industrial-age lectures. Instructors that complete a successful tour at EWTGLANT will have the most current/relevant teaching strategies that relate to USN/USMC amphibious concepts making them force multipliers to future operational commands.
