With E-4 through E-6 exams coming up in March, now is a good time to prepare! View bibliographies, Time-In-Rate (TIR) and Final Multiple Score (FMS) information on My Navy Portal. Bibiliographies are also available on Navy COOL.

Don’t spill a drop! FRCMA Det Washington held their monthly Sailor 360 event covering the topic of Team Building. Teams were given the challenge to pass water down the line to demonstrate how they can use creative thinking, asking questions, and communication to successfully complete the task. Overall, this event gave Sailors a chance to learn, teach, and most importantly, work together as one.

Beginning in March, first classes will no longer have to make a mad rush to log onto a computer to see if they made board. Now their command leadership will be able to notify them if they made board and help them prepare if they did. And for those that did not make board, leadership will be able to help them work on areas they need to improve in.

Have you heard? There's a change coming to the notification process for selection board eligibility. Check it out here! 👇

ICYMI: Big news as we honor this American Hero! #CVN81

“Naming CVN 81 for Dorie Miller casts long overdue recognition to a true American hero and icon. It also honors the contributions of African Americans and enlisted Sailors for the first time in the history of American aircraft carriers. The Sailors who will put the USS Doris Miller to sea will be the fortunate ones, as heirs to the mightiest of Navy legends who epitomized the kind of fighting Sailor we need today.” -MCPON Smith

See the story behind the hero whose name will be forever inscribed in our hearts, our memory, and soon enough across the stern of a mighty American aircraft carrier.

Today we celebrate the life and achievements of Dr. King, his everlasting legacy, and the principles he fought for: justice, equality, and opportunity for all.

#MLKDay

Today, on the 25th Annual Martin Luther King Day of Service, take time to reflect on the life of Dr. Martin Luther King and what he advocated for, including equality and service. Dr. King once said, “Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.” Think of today as a day on, not a day off and look for opportunities to volunteer and serve. To those of you who wear or have worn the cloth of our Nation, thank you. I’m incredibly proud of you and the work we do as a Navy. I’ll see you in the fleet. #MLKDay #MLKDay25

For those with questions regarding access to base, please see below.

To clarify, by “government ID” that means any government issued ID. This includes a driver’s license, dependent ID, etc. Everyone in the vehicle must present a valid ID to the gate sentry and the driver/escort must have valid DOD ID card.

Please be advised: 100% ID checks at the gates. Everyone in the car must present a government issued ID Card to gain access. The driver must present an authorized DOD ID card. Please have all IDs ready to present to the sentry BEFORE you reach the gate. Doing so will help alleviate delays and back ups at the gates. Thank you.

Undesignated Sailors Now Have Clear Path to Ratings

Big news for our PACT Sailors!

According to NAVADMIN 275/19, Professional Apprenticeship Career Track (PACT) Sailors can now use MyNavy Assignment (MNA) to apply for billets within ratings they're qualified for, as determined by Career Waypoints (C-Way). MNA, a new Sailor interface to the Detailing Marketplace, will replace the current Career Management System – Interactive Detailing (CMS-ID) on Dec. 5, and give Sailors access to enhanced career management capabilities and an improved graphic user interface.

Also, as of today, CMS-ID is gone and has been replaced with the new MyNavy Assignment interface. Check out the @NavyPersonnelCommand page for more details.

Undesignated Sailors will now be approved for a rating based on the billet for which they are selected in MyNavy Assignment, the Navy announced Dec. 3.

COMFRC Naval Sustainment System: FRC Reform

From COMFRC RDML Zarkowski:

Teammates,
This past year COMFRC and the entire FRC enterprise worked tirelessly in support of an 80% mission capable rate for our F/A-18E/F and EA18-G aircraft – and adopted the Naval Sustainment System (NSS), focusing on the FRC reform pillar of this model.

Watch how everyone involved was “all-in” (links to video are below). These efforts allowed us to achieve and even exceed the goal of 341 mission capable Super Hornets. Well done!

Keep Fixing for the Fight,
RDML Zarkowski

In October 2018, the Naval Sustainment System (NSS) model was implemented to address declining readiness and mission-capable aircraft numbers for strike-figh...
