CNIC & U.S. Fleet Forces Command's annual hurricane preparedness exercise (HURREX) kicks off today! The exercise simulates the development, landfall and recovery from a damaging hurricane in Navy Region Southeast, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic and Naval District Washington (NDW) so that naval forces along the East Coast and Gulf are prepared for whatever the upcoming hurricane season may bring.

Sailors and their families should also do their part to ensure personal readiness by having an emergency kit, making a family emergency plan and knowing what resources are available to you.

Today, on the anniversary of the loss of #USSThresher (SSN 593), we honor the 129 brave men who perished aboard. Following the loss of Thresher, the Navy instituted the Submarine Safety (SUBSAFE) Program, which drastically improved quality control and assurance in the fabrication, construction and maintenance of submarines. The basic foundation of the SUBSAFE program is still in place today.

“This month, and every month, we must work together to focus on the prevention of sexual assault and building a safe environment for our Marines, Sailors, and civilians. It is a personal priority of mine to ensure that we promote a climate of trust, respect and inclusion. Our focus must be on recognizing and stopping destructive behaviors early and consistently, so leaders can take appropriate action.”

Check out this insipring story of female pioneer Dr. Bernice "Burma" R. Walters Nordstrom as we close out the celebration of Women's History Month!

ICYMI: Check out this amazing story from Naval History & Heritage Command in honor of #NationalDoctorsDay 👩‍⚕️ 👨‍⚕️ 🏥 🇺🇸 and #WomensHistoryMonth #WomenMakingHistory #WomenInMedicine

“The Army and the Navy needs doctors, and a doctor is a doctor, whether man or woman.” (North American Newspaper Alliance (NANA), 28 November 1952)

Dr. Bernice "Burma" R. Walters Nordstrom earned her doctorate of medicine in 1936. After completing her internship, residency, and a specialty in anesthesia, she opened her own general practice.

Never one to sit still, Dr. Walters became a licensed pilot while waiting for patients for her new practice. After the outbreak of World War II, she briefly served as a medical officer with the Civil Air Patrol (CAP). In late 1942, she applied to join the Women’s Auxiliary Service Pilots (WASP). Dr. Walters later said that she flew with the WASPs for three months before the President of the United States agreed to allow women doctors to join the Medical Corps. She immediately decided to make a switch. In July 1943, she accepted her commission as a medical officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve. ⚓

ICYMI!

Affected by facial razor bumps? We've got some good news for you!
As a result of feedback from Sailors and waterfront leadership, the Navy has updated grooming policy and requirements for Sailors diagnosed with the shaving-related condition pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB) in NAVADMIN 064/22, March 9.

Read the full news article here: https://www.navy.mil/Press-Office/News-Stories/Article/2961376/navy-updates-policy-for-sailors-with-pseudofolliculitis-barbae-pfb/

See NAVADMIN 064/22 below:

SUBJECT: BUPERSINST 1000.22C MANAGEMENT OF NAVY UNIFORMED PERSONNEL DIAGNOSED WITH PSEUDOFOLLICULITIS BARBAE (PFB) UPDATE//

RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces modifications to references (a) and
(b) regarding grooming and evaluation requirements for Sailors diagnosed with Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PFB). These modifications are based on a periodic review of references (a) and (b) by Navy
dermatologists, the Navy Uniform Matters Office (OPNAV N13X) and recommendations provided by waterfront leadership and Sailors
diagnosed with PFB.

2. PFB is caused when tightly curled beard hairs, sharpened by shaving, curve back and re-enter the skin, resulting in facial inflammation, bumps and infections.
3. The following PFB policy changes and management requirements are effective immediately:
a. In line with reference (c), Sailors diagnosed with PFB and authorized facial hair may optionally outline/edge their beards.
Discontinue outlining/edging of beards if doing so results in skin irritation or causes an outbreak.
b. Sailors diagnosed with PFB are no longer required to maintain a copy of a facial hair waiver on their person. The required source
of documentation is the Sailors medical record. Sailors have the option to maintain a copy of their waiver treatment form on a
personal portable electronic device or a paper copy for convenience in situations such as embarking a ship or temporary duty assignments where medical records may not be immediately available.
c. PFB treatment failures will not be considered for administrative separation from the Navy. Sailors found to be willfully non-compliant or that refuse to comply with prescribed PFB medical treatments or commanding officers shaving requirements may be subject to administrative separation.
d. Laser hair reduction treatments are optional and must be agreed upon by the PFB diagnosed Sailor.
e. Temporary waivers for PFB medical treatment periods are expanded from 60 to 90 days or as prescribed by the attending
military medical care provider.
f. Evaluations for PFB diagnosed Sailors found to be unresponsive to medical or laser treatments is expanded to occur every two years vice annually unless more frequent evaluations are required by a military medical care provider.

4. Maintain a copy of this NAVADMIN until all policy changes are respectively reflected in references (a) and (b).

5. Questions and comments regarding this NAVADMIN should be
addressed to Mr. Robert B. Carroll, OPNAV N13X, at
robert.b.carroll3.civ(at)us.navy.mil or ETC(SW) Ryan Cameron, OPNAV
N13X, at ryan.p.cameron.mil(at)us.navy.mil.

6. Feedback and recommendations regarding Navy uniform and grooming policies are welcomed and can be provided via the MyNavy Portal at
https://www.mnp.navy.mil/, select Professional Resources, U.S. Navy Uniforms and *Ask The Chiefs.* Feedback can also be provided via the MyNavy UNIFORMS App.

In honor of #WomensHistoryMonth, we will be celebrating groundbreaking naval women throughout March.
The first women to serve in the U.S. Navy were nurses, beginning with the “Sacred Twenty” appointed after Congress established the Navy Nurse Corps on 13 May 1908. Today, women serve in every rank from seaman to admiral and in every job from naval aviator to deep-sea diver. Which of these women inspires you?

In celebration of President's Day 2022, we’re sharing a story with you! 📜 ✒️ 📖

Naval Special Warfare Command’s history office highlights one of the lesser-known ties between two highly distinguished U.S. Navy families – the Bush and Kauffman families – and the early history of Naval Special Warfare.

The first connection occurred when Prescott Bush, the older brother of President George H. W. Bush, married Elizabeth Kauffman, the sister of Lt. Cmdr. Draper Kauffman during World War II.
