11/02/2021

Since 1776, when General George Washington began enlisting Native Americans for his Army, Navy, and Marines, Native Americans have contributed significantly to the defense of our nation. During the Civil War, 20,000 Native Americans served with Union forces both at sea and on the land. During World War I, although ineligible for the draft, 15,000 Native Americans volunteered to fight in the Great War. Although Native Americans have been an integral part of our country long before its birth, Native American veterans weren’t awarded citizenship and voting rights until 1919. In 1924, voting rights were extended to all Native Americans after the Snyder Act was passed. In World War II, 44,000 fought with distinction, including 1,910 in the Navy and 874 in the Marines. For the Navy, two Oklahoma Cherokees distinguished themselves. Rear Admiral Joseph J. “Jocko” Clark commanded aircraft carriers and later a task force. Commander Ernest E. Evans was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Battle off Samar, Philippines.

Between 10,000 and 15,000 Native Americans fought in the Korean War and more than 42,000 during Vietnam. In 1966, South Carolina Cherokee Boatswain’s Mate 1st Class James E. Williams, while serving at South Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, killed an unknown number of enemy forces while destroying 65 vessels and disrupting an enemy logistic operation. Williams was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during the three-hour battle against Viet Cong guerrillas with the two riverine patrol boats he commanded.

In the early 1970s, Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Elmo Zumwalt sought to reduce racism and sexism in both the Navy and Marine Corps with Z-Gram #66 (Equal Opportunity) which benefited Native Americans immensely. Rear Admiral Michael L. Holmes and Commander John B. Herrington are notable examples of the new opportunities for Native Americans as a result of Zumwalt’s Z-Gram. Holmes served 32 years as a naval aviator, and Herrington flew for the Navy and later NASA, becoming the first enrolled member of an Native American tribe to fly in space.

As of March 2012, active duty Native American military members numbered 22,248, with over half, 13,511, in the Navy. More than 160,000 Native Americans call themselves veterans today. Approximately, 15,000 active duty, reserve, and civilian members of the Navy’s total force declare themselves Native American or Alaska native. In the twenty-first century the Navy’s leadership remains strongly committed to diversity.

“Domestic violence refers to acts of violence (physical, sexual, emotional and psychological) that occur between people who have, or have had, an intimate relationship. It tends to involve an ongoing pattern of behavior aimed at controlling a partner through fear.” #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth

Everyone has a role to play in preventing domestic violence in our communities, starting with you. Domestic Violence Awareness month is a great time to check in on personal relationships to set boundaries and recognize both healthy and unhealthy behaviors. #CultureofExcellence #Accountability #UnitedtoEndDomesticAbuse

NCBC Fitness Center to be named after fallen Seabee, BUC Raymond J. Border
NCBC Gulfport Public Affairs

After about a year long process, the Chief of Naval Operations has approved Naval Construction Battalion Center (NCBC) Gulfport, Mississippi, to officially name the NCBC Fitness Center for Builder Chief Petty Officer (BUC) Raymond J. Border, who was killed in the Patika Province, Afghanistan, 10 years ago today, Oct. 19, 2011.

Border served 12 years before his death and had volunteered for an individual augmentee tour back to Afghanistan after deploying with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 74 the year prior. He was the recipient of the Bronze Star with combat V, Purple Heart and Combat Action Ribbon.

The official naming ceremony for the Raymond J. Border Fitness Center is scheduled to be held sometime in 2022 (more information will be provided once a ceremony date has been set).

The naming of the Fitness Center will allow the Seabees to be able to permanently remember and honor one of their fallen Seabees and Chief Petty Officers.

Force Master Chief of the Seabees

The Senior Enlisted Advisor, now the Force Master Chief, position was created in 1968 to act as a point of contact for the Master Chief of the Navy on enlisted personnel matters concerning Seabees in the field. They also actively participate in Seabee personnel planning, promoting welfare, and providing guidance to the Chief of NAVFAC on all matters affecting the Seabees. The position name was changed from Senior Enlisted Advisor to Force Master Chief in 1980 although the duties remained the same.

Few months back I was scrolling through and reading posts in groups just like you're doing now, i had no intention of investing a penny in forex. I just enjoyed reading testimonies of different people making thousands of dollars in forex, it all seemed like a ploy, it was just too good to be true.. Then I thought to myself, what if this is it? what if this is my only way of earning without having to work all day and night-shifts. I took a bold step to invest with Mr Ben Raphael who I've read so much good reports about. I invested in forex service and in 6days i got paid in my bitcoin wallet. From there on I realized I've been a coward all this time who was afraid of taking the leap of faith, thank God did sooner rather than later. WhatsApp +12134784212 Email: [email protected]
