The Navy will celebrate its 244th birthday on Sunday, Oct. 13. The theme for this year is “No Higher Honor,” which focuses on the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Leyte Gulf – the largest sea battle in modern day history.

Do you need Urgent Care or have questions about it? The TRICARE Nurse Advice Line can help!

Urgent care is care you need for a non-emergency illness or injury. If you need urgent care treatment within 24 hours, you shouldn't have to travel more than 30 minutes for that care. You typically need urgent care to treat a condition that:

1. Doesn’t threaten life, limb or eyesight.
2. Needs attention before it becomes a serious risk to health.
3. Examples may include things like a high fever or a sprained ankle

For Urgent Care questions, you can contact the Nurse Advice Line at anytime from anywhere (24/7), to ask urgent care questions, get health care advice, and make same day appointments at your local military hospital or clinic. Visit:www.tricare.mil/NAL or call 1-800-TRICARE (874-2273), option 1.

JEBLC Facebook shared the following information:
#Dorian impacts to local areas expected to begin Thursday. Keep an eye on your regional, installation, and command social media pages for updates. Things to do before a storm hits:
1. Know your zone! If evacuations are announced, know when it’s time for you and your family to leave the area.
2. Power outages are common with high winds. Have extra food and water stored.
3. Keep phones, tablets, radios, etc. charged in case of emergency.
4. Visit ready.navy.mil for tips on building hurricane kits and more!
#ReadyNavy

[2:05 PM] Here is the latest on #Dorian as of 2 PM EDT. Remember, the cone of uncertainty is related to the track of the center of the storm. Impacts will occur well outside of the cone. Impacts begin locally by Thursday.

Chief season is upon us! If your spouse is eligible I would save this date on your calendar. Also, Naval Beach Group Two will likely do a luncheon with selectee spouses. Once information is available we will give it to the selectee spouses.

We asked you to "Save the Date!" Now, without further ado, it is the information that spouses of board eligible service members have been waiting for. Please share with Command Ombudsmen, FRG leaders and current CPO spouses to spread the word. This event is in its 11th year and and it is going to be amazing!

For registration questions, please contact Navy League Hampton Roads at 757-486-7654. They will be happy to assist you! Registration link:

WELCOME HOME 1664 & 1657! A special thank you to Penguin's SnoBalls for coming out to make our homecoming extra sweet!

07/02/2019

Greetings!

We are aware that the Fort Mac has posted updates regarding their homecoming information.

Planning and executing their timeline is a little less complicated than forming our timeline.

Once the ship is relieved of the LCUs they are able to steam ahead and make a preset time. Our LCUs are slow going and have other offloads and commands to coordinate with.

We would advise not going by the info that the Fort Mac Ombudsman has posted, it will cause confusion and misinformation.

When we have concrete information, it will be relayed to you all as soon as possible. We understand the frustration and waiting game.

If you have questions or concerns please reach out to us. We wish there was more information to pass along but as of now there is not.

Warmly,
Hanna Palmer

Everyone is most likely aware of the sad events that took place in the heart of Virginia Beach on May 31st.

We may have persons directly or indirectly associated with those who were injured, lost lives, or responded to the call as police, fire, or EMS.

Below are a few links to resources.

If you are in need of counseling or resources of that nature, please utilize the Fleet and Family Support link.

If you are looking for helpful resources from the city, the second link is from the City of Virginia Beach.

Please do not forget that we are here to support the families of our sailors and many of whom have been stationed here for many consecutive years or many duty stations here.

Reach out to us at any time if you are in need of any further resources or information.
