Please visit our official homepage at www.cnic.navy.mil Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC), headquartered at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, DC, is responsible for worldwide U.S. Navy shore installation management as the Navy’s shore integrator, designing and developing integrated solutions for sustainment and development of Navy shore infrastructure. With more than 53,000 military and civilian personnel worldwide across 11 regions, 70 installations, and 123 Naval Operations Support Centers, CNIC is responsible for the operations, maintenance and quality of life programs to support the Navy's Fleet, Fighter, and Family. "Fleet" represents the operating forces of the Navy. CNIC ensures all installation requirements necessary to train and operate the Fleets (Ports, Airfields, Training Ranges, etc.) are maintained and ready regardless of tempo. "Fighter" represents the men and women in the operating forces. CNIC ensures the installation's ability to facilitate the manning, training and equipping of the Navy's fighting force never skips a beat. "Family" represents the men and women of the armed forces and their families. To ensure our fighting force is supported on all fronts, our Family and Community Services, Housing and Safety efforts provide the "peace of mind" to allow "Big" Navy to operate effectively.

Mission: Deliver effective and efficient readiness from the shore.

NAVY SHARING AND CARING:
Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Child and Youth Programs Preschool and School Age Care children made dozens of Thanksgiving and Holiday cards last week to show their love and appreciation for active duty personnel serving in the GTMO community and around the world. The NSGB Command Team delivered some of the cards with Thanksgiving meals to Sailors in Restriction of Movement (ROM) status. The meals were prepared by MWR Bayview and sponsored by the Guantanamo Bay Community Club. NSGB shared 45 of the cards with Joint Task Force Guantanamo Bay (JTF-GTMO) leaders to deliver to their service members in ROM status during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The intention of the combined holiday-spirit effort was to remind personnel across the installation they are valued members of this special community! ~Nikki, NSGB PAO

Secretary of the Navy Kenneth J. Braithwaite

This holiday season may seem different with social distancing. We are thankful for our Sailors and civilian employees that serve to keep us safe and are especially thankful for our Navy Families who support us. Happy Thanksgiving from CNIC! Keep safe and practice CDC health guidelines during COVID-19. #MilitaryFamilyMonth #Thanksgiving

Of the many reasons the American people pause to give thanks this holiday season – at the top of the list will always be you. Whether you are home for the holidays, gathering from a safe virtual distance, or dining with your shipmates, I want to wish all of our Sailors, Marines, Department of the Navy civilians, and families a happy and healthy holiday season. May God bless you all.

COVID-19 hasn’t gone anywhere. Cases are rising rapidly in many parts of the U.S. This pandemic is not over. But, if we all work together and do our part, it can be. Here’s what you can do to help protect yourself and others:
• Wear a mask over your mouth AND nose when in public.
• Stay home when you can.
• Stay at least 6 feet apart from others and avoid crowds.
• Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.

During National Veterans & Military Families Month, we MUST recognize the integral role the more than 2.6 million military family members play in supporting our Armed Forces. While our Sailors are serving at home or overseas, part of CNIC’s mission is to provide their families with the resources they need to thrive.

If you have questions about the different family support/advocacy programs available thought Fleet and Family Support Program locate your local Family Support Center and reach out to them. They understand that our Navy family members serve right alongside those in uniform and are committed to serving you!

Biden needs to address this... This is what Obama and Biden tried to cover up along with the FBI. If anyone ever had to check into the Hospital for hearing high pitched sounds or for hearing voices,now you know. Does everyone see how the FBI is a cancer on America ? In Lehigh County Government they think just like the FBI, if we all stick together nobody is going to do anything , there is too many of us . That's how they think at the FBI , that's how they think at the Pennsylvania State Police and that's how they think in Lehigh County , they could do what they want . My two trials prove that . The Criminal Defense Attorney's went right along w/ that mind set of the FBI , Pennsylvania State Police and Lehigh county Law Enforcement. When you have Judges telling me to report criminal conduct , to say the least , to the media ... and then putting me through two trials trying to cover up their use in Microwave Technology and Remote Neural Monitoring . The FBI controls the Defense Attorney's , the FBI controls the Judges , the FBI controls the media , in this case the FBI even controlled the Jury ... this is what a trial looks like in America ...

Tax season can be an anxious time of year, but it doesn’t have to be if you know where to turn for help. It is also a great opportunity for servicemembers to build up their savings using a portion of their refunds. Servicemembers should know that there are resources available to them for free tax preparation. Read the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s joint blog with the Defense Department’s Office of Financial Readiness to learn more. https://www.consumerfinance.gov/about-us/blog/are-you-military-and-getting-ready-do-your-taxes-make-sure-you-know-how-file-free/ If you have particular questions about a financial product or service, reach out to the Office of Servicemember Affairs at the CFPB at [email protected].
My name is Ralph Parrott. I am an old, beat up, soon to be 79 year old retired Navy Captain. I have been staying at Ely Hall across from the Breezy Point Officers Club off and on for over 50 years. Hell, I am old enough to remember when the Conference Room was the Commissioned Officers Mess (Closed). I love the old place and I fully understand the need to have raised the price of suites over the years to the current $93. However, I do not understand why, at this price, the place is steadily degrading despite a wonderful staff. To wit the plaster in the bathroom ceilings is peeling and the carpet in the lobby is worn out and the heating system fans are noisy and on and on. Just some observations from a loyal customer of many years. Surely, you can do better.
The $$$ you saved cancelling the security contract for McGrew Housing in Pearl Harbor paid off... Petty criminals are driving through our neighborhood daily, tossing cars. The word is out, no one is providing (effective) security here any more.
