A new CDC study shows that people who were fully vaccinated had more than 10 times lower risk of being hospitalized or dying with COVID-19 compared with people who were not fully vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines offer strong protection against serious illness and death even with the Delta variant. The best way to protect yourself and those around you is to get vaccinated.

Build A Kit | Ready.gov

FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency has great guidance and resources for building an emergency kit at https://www.ready.gov/kit and here are CNIC’s tips for building one on a budget:
-You don’t have to get all of your supplies at once - clip coupons and watch for deals.
-Before hitting the store, look around your home for extra essentials such as extra packs of batteries, spare flashlights, etc.
-Check your pantry for prepackaged dry goods, nonperishable items and bottled water
-For items you don’t have on hand, shop sales at your commissary, dollar stores, local big box or warehouse stores
-Take advantage of buy-one-get-one sales by adding the free item to your emergency kit
-Shop Navy Exchange sales on a la carte preparedness items ranging from day-to-day essentials to generators and tactical tools: https://www.mynavyexchange.com/Prep

These resources teach you to build an emergency kit filled with the items you need to survive on your own for several days after a disaster. After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for sever...

AROUND THE SHORE: Every month, we spotlight how Navy installations gave back to their community, excelled at their mission and went above & beyond expectations during the previous 30 days. This August, we’re showcasing the herculean efforts undertaken by NAS Sigonella and Naval Station Rota, Spain.

In the past several weeks, the Navy Region Europe, Africa, Central installations have supported thousands of vulnerable Afghans as transit centers providing access to medical care, temporary lodging, Halal dining, religious and recreation areas. What’s even more impressive is the heart they’ve shown as communities. When a call went out for essential items, Sailors, civilians and their families answered with an abundance of donated diapers, clothing, cell phone chargers, baby formula and other high-need items. They also turned out in person to collect, sort, deliver the donations and warmly welcome arriving evacuees with a friendly face, and a toy for each of the children. BZs to the teams and families onboard NAS Sigonella and NS Rota, Spain.

Hello naval command.
Hello sir
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.
