Rating Merger



Decisions Out


By MC2 Trevor Andersen
Navy Personnel Command Public

The Navy announced in
NAVADMIN 319/07 on Nov.
30 that the merger of eight engi-
neering ratings into three has
been postponed until 2010 when
the proposal will be reevalu-
ated. Two other rating mergers
have been disapproved.
The larger merger of eight
ratings included combining
the hull maintenance techni-
cian, damage controlman and
machinery repairman ratings
into one rating, the electrician's
mate and gas turbine system
technician-electrical ratings into
a second and the machinist's
mate, engineman and gas tur-
bine system technician-mechan-
ical rating into a third.
"I believe an engineering
rating merger makes sense,
but when we do it, we'll do it
right. It's not an easy process;
there are training and distribu-
tion issues that need to be care-


fully planned, so that when
we do execute, we can be cer-
tain we've set our Sailors up
for success," said Vice Adm.
John Harvey, Chief of Naval
Personnel (CNP).
The proposal to merge inte-
rior communications electrician
(IC) with electronics technician
(ET) was disapproved.
"The bottom line is ICs
and ETs are just too unique to
merge. They have unique skills,
and the equipment they operate
and repair requires individual-
ized training. Things are work-
ing well now and it makes sense
to keep them that way," Harvey
said.
The operations specialist (OS)
and quartermaster (QM) merger
was also disapproved.
"In-depth analysis determined
that while OS and QM rating
share some common skill sets,
we found as Sailors become
more senior, each rating focus-

New Youth Fitness Initiative Under Wa


From MWR
Are you ready to "Get Up,
Get Out and Get Fit!"
The U.S. Navy Child and
Youth Programs, in conjunction
with MWR Mayport launched
Fit Factor on Nov. 30 at Youth
Activities center.
Fit Factor is a new youth fit-
ness initiative that encourages
physical activity, healthy eating
selections and rewards youth
between the ages of 6-18 years
old for their efforts.
Children from the Youth
Activities Center participated
in several activities on Nov. 30
in fitness stations. They played
tug-o-war, worked on fitness
gear and tried new poses in
Yoga.
Children also met with a
representative from Health
Promotions to talk about healthy
eating and learn different types
of healthy food choices.
Fit Factor is designed to stim-
ulate interest and awareness of
the importance of healthy life-
style choices and encourage
youth to "Get Up, Get Out and
Get Fit!"
The goal of the Fit Factor
program is to encourage healthy
choices and teach youth to value
their lives. Being healthy and
fit will put youth in touch with
their bodies, increase their self
esteem and help them establish
the desire to set personal goals.
The most important aspect of
any exercise program is that it
be fun! Fit Factor is an excit-
ing web based program that will
reward youth for being active
and making healthy choices
everyday.
According to the former U.S.
Surgeon General, Vice Adm.
Richard M. Carmona, "As a


society, we can no longer afford
to make poor health choices
such as being physically inac-
tive and eating an unhealthy
diet; these choices have led to a
tremendous obesity epidemic."
Fit Factor encourages youth
to be physically active for at
least 60 minutes each day
through a variety of activities.
This program promotes activi-
ties for every ability level and
interest from star athlete to
couch potato.
Fit Factor offers five exciting
levels for youth to complete as
they participate in any physical
activity. The Fit Factor levels
are: Energy, Strength, Agility,
Adventure and Endurance.
Prizes will be awarded to youth
as they accomplish each new
level. In addition to having fun,
winning prizes and getting fit.
Fit Factor will also encourage
youth to:
*Be physically active for at
least sixty minutes each day;
*Make healthy eating and life-
style choices;
*Include friends and fam-
ily participation in fun physical
activities and games;
*Limit the amount of screen
time (television and computer)
they log each day; and
*Adopt healthy exercise rou-
tines, including a broad range of
physical and leisure-time activi-
ties.
It is important that we pro-
vide our youth the opportunity
to be active everyday, teach
them to make informed nutri-
tional choices and encourage
a healthy lifestyle at all times.
Fit Factor will play a major role
in keeping our youth healthy
and in shape as they Get Up,
Get Out and Get Fit!

DoN, GMH Get Money For CNRSE Project


From GMH Communities Trust
GMH Communities Trust,
through its military housing
division, announced that financ-
ing has been secured for the
Navy Southeast Region proj-
ect covering family housing
communities at 11 Navy bases
located in five states through-
out the Southeastern region of
the United States. This financ-
ing provides the funding needed
to initiate design, development
and construction/renovation
activities relating to the 5,269
end-state housing units covered
by the project.
The project includes a six-
year initial development peri-


od with project costs valued in
excess of approximately $740.3
million. Throughout the 50-year
term of the project, GMH will
earn management, construction/
renovation and development
fees, as well as equity returns
on its invested capital.
Bruce Robinson, president
of GMH's military housing
division, stated, "We are very
pleased to have completed the
financing for this project, which
represents one of the largest
public-private venture (PPV)
housing initiatives to date. We
are ready to commence devel-
opment and construction/reno-
vation work together with our


construction and architectur-
al/engineering partners. More
importantly, we look forward to
working with the Department of
the Navy to improve the lives
of military personnel and their
families through the provision
of quality homes and superior
housing management services."
Congressionally autho-
rized since 1996, the Military
Housing Privatization Initiative
allows the Department of
Defense, and the Department of
the Navy to work with the pri-
vate sector to upgrade the qual-
ity of family housing and oper-
ate and maintain that housing.
The family housing assets are


typically leveraged with private
investment to accomplish hous-
ing construction and renovation
goals faster and at a lower cost
than military construction.
GMH Military Housing oper-
ates 12 military housing priva-
tization projects, and previ-
ously has partnered with The
Department of the Army for the
military family housing privati-
zation projects. GMH has part-
nered with the Department of
the Navy for its Navy Northeast
Region Project, covering eight
Naval bases in Maine, Rhode
Island, Connecticut, New
York and New Jersey, as well
as the Navy Southeast Region


Project covering 11 Naval bases
in South Carolina, Florida,
Georgia, Mississippi, and
Texas. GMH has also partnered
with the Department of the Air
Force.
GMH Communities Trust
(www.gmhcommunities.com) is
a publicly-traded Maryland real
estate investment trust (REIT).
It is a self-advised, self-man-
aged, specialty housing compa-
ny focused on providing hous-
ing to college and university
students residing off-campus
and to members of the U.S. mil-
itary and their families residing
on or near bases throughout the
United States.

HSL-48 Venom Shockers


Transit Atlantic Ocean


From HSL-48
The "Venom Shockers" of
Helicopter Anti-Submarine
Squadron Light 48 (HSL-48)
Detachment One, departed
Naval Station Mayport aboard
USS Hue City (CG 66) for a
seven-month deployment with
the USS Harry S. Truman
Carrier Strike Group (CSG).
The Venom Shockers, led
by Lt. Cmdr. Chris "Hewy"
Hewlett, met up with the CSG
shortly after leaving Mayport
and completed an uneventful
Atlantic crossing in preparation
for future operations.
During the transit, coordinat-
ed anti-submarine warfare and
anti-surface warfare exercises,
such as low-slow-flyer train-
ing, were conducted, as well
as vertical replenishment train-
ing. In addition, the Venom
Shockers continued to provide
tactical and logistical support
to the CSG, which included one
MEDEVAC and multiple pas-
senger transfers.
The culminating event of the
Atlantic crossing was the Straits
of Gibraltar (STROG) transit.


'Sammy
By Ensign Molly Harris
USS Samuel B. Roberts PAO
The crew of the "Sammy B,"
along with family, friends, and
past shipmates gathered on the
flight deck to bid farewell to
Command Master Chief Keith
Taylor on Nov.9.
Taylor enlisted in 1987 and
dedicated 30 years of service to
the United States Navy.
The crowded flight deck was
indicative of the dedication that
Master Chief Taylor gave to the
Navy and to the hundreds of
lives that he touched throughout
the years.
As guest speaker, Surface
Force Master Chief Dave
Pennington spoke about the
qualities and ideals that Taylor
embraced and exuded through-
out his tenure.
Using the acrostic 'REAL,'
Force Master Chief Pennington
described Taylor as reliable,
easy to get along with, and
appreciative of where he came


The STROG transit provided
an ideal training environment
for the strike group, particularly
the helicopter assets, in prepara-
tion for the impending Straits of
Hormuz transit.
The Venom Shockers were
airborne throughout the entire
STROG transit and provided
vital support to USS Hue City
and the rest of the CSG. The
Venom Shockers provided a
surface picture with their radar
and communications abilities,
ready to respond to any threat.
After safely entering the
Mediterranean Sea, USS Hue
City and USS Harry S. Truman
separated from the remainder of
the CSG and steamed towards
Naples, Italy. The Venom
Shockers were very busy dur-
ing the two weeks that it took
to get from Mayport to Naples.
During that time, the detach-
ment flew 67.5 hours, more
than half of which were at night.
The detachment transferred 28
passengers, completed a medi-
cal evacuation, and delivered
numerous parts critical to USS
Hue City.


During the initial underway
period, both of the detachment's
SH-60B helicopters were full
mission capable, thanks to the
stellar maintenance team led by
Lt. Nicholas Durgin and Senior
Chief Aviation Machinist's Mate
Jeffrey Smethers. Working
around the clock in the chal-
lenging shipboard environment,
the maintainers kept the aging
aircraft operable without dif-
ficulty.
Once in Naples, the Venom
Shockers enjoyed the historic
city and its surrounding areas.
Members from the detachment
visited Rome, Mt. Vesuvius,
Pompeii, and Sorrento. All
enjoyed the short break
and were thankful to spend
Thanksgiving ashore, where
they could easily communicate
with family and friends.
Fairly soon, the Venom
Shockers will be in the Fifth
Fleet area of responsibility,
doing their job in the Global
War on Terrorism. After almost
a year of training together,
Detachment One is more than
ready to answer the call of duty.


B' CMC Retires


from. Pennington noted that all
of these characteristics and traits
embodied what he believed to
be the ideals of a true leader.
From the most junior Sailors
that he guided through exam-
ple on a day-to-day basis to the
chief petty officers that he men-
tored and led to the command-
ing officer of the "Sammy B,"
Taylor's gift of leadership, level
headedness, and love for his job
inspired and motivated those
with whom he served through-
out his career. His genuinely
caring and concerned demean-
or was best exemplified in his
famous response when passing
someone in a passageway who
asked how he was doing, a sim-
ple, cheerful, and honest, "Well,
I'm doing all the more better
now that you asked!"
Of all that Taylor has to be
grateful for on the coming
together of his Naval career
upon his retirement, he specifi-
cally mentioned his gratitude


and blessing for his 28-year
marriage to his wife, Kathy.
To Sailors of every rate and
rank, the unwavering support of
his wife throughout his service
and their ability to stay commit-
ted to one another through all of
the challenges that military life
brings stands as a healthy exam-
ple to all he has served with.
A Sailor from each pay grade
from Seamen to Senior Chief
lined up for the passing of the
flag while Chief Petty Officer
Carhart read the poem "Old
Glory" before the colors were
presented to Taylor. The retire-
ment ceremony wrapped up as
Master Chief Taylor was piped
over the side by Chief Petty
Officer Smith alongside his
eight side boys.

SECDEF Maintenance Award Comes To Mayport


By CWO3 Dale Waldrop
From Fleet Readiness Center Southeast
Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast (FRCSE) Site
Mayport, formerly Aircraft
Intermediate Maintenance
Detachment, Mayport, Fl., was
the only Navy unit selected in
this year's final cut for one of
six field level recipients for
the 2007 Secretary of Defense
(SECDEF) Maintenance Award.
The units receiving these
awards are the finest mainte-
nance organizations and pro-
grams in the Department of
Defense winners from among
many outstanding units.
During the past year, their
achievements have set them
apart. FRCSE Mayport was
nominated along with five other
Navy units to compete against
all Armed Forces Services
maintenance units around the
world.
The award was present-
ed at the 2007 Secretary of
Defense Maintenance Awards
banquet Nov. 15, in Orlando,
Fla. The keynote speaker,
General Benjamin S. Griffin,
Commanding General U.S.
Army Materiel Command,
addressed each field level unit
winner on the outstanding con-
tributions they have accom-
plished to increase field level
maintenance readiness and cost
saving throughout the year.
"It's all about providing the
warfighter with the product and
reducing waste," Griffin said.
He challenged each winner to
return to the field and pass on
those successful elements and
to continue to train and seek
improvements for tomorrow.
The SECDEF awards are
symbolized by the legendary
PHOENIX a mythological
bird which lived for some five
centuries, died, was consumed
by flames, and then reborn from
it's own ashes. Periodically,
the PHOENIX would again
and again be reborn. The
unique ability of the legend-
ary PHOENIX to rejuvenate
and renew itself characterizes
the role of weapon systems and


maintenance in the Department
of Defense.
As the PHOENIX gives itself
new life, so does maintenance
give new and continued life
to weapon systems and equip-
ment. Maintenance restores
life to these essential defense
resources. This rejuvenation
and renewal of the myriad of
systems and component parts
are accomplished through activ-
ities ranging from inspection to
repair to overhaul to equipment
modification. Maintenance cov-
ers the spectrum, from daily
routine inspections to the most
complex problem identification
and repair actions.
To recognize the contribu-
tion maintenance makes to
keeping our forces ready and
to sustaining them in conflict,
the Secretary of Defense estab-
lished the Secretary of Defense
Maintenance Awards Program
to honor exceptional field-level
unit maintenance accomplish-
ments.
The PHOENIX was selected
as symbolic of the relationship
between maintenance and the
equipment and weapon systems
maintained. The uniqueness of
the PHOENIX exemplifies the
extraordinary contribution that
maintainers make to the defense
of the United States of America.
On hand to receive the
award was Cmdr. Graham R.
Guiler, Officer in Charge, Lt.
Rocco Mingione, Maintenance
Material Control Officer, Chief
Aviation Structurual Mechanic
(AW) John Cowan, Production
Control Chief and 16 other per-
sonnel from FRCSE Mayport.
"What a great accomplish-
ment for the men and women of
FRCSE Mayport not just to be
nominated, but to be selected,"
said Guiler. "Their drive, dedi-
cation, and spirit of innovation
to meet the goals established by
Commander, Fleet Readiness
Center, Rear Adm. Michael
Hardee and Commanding
Officer, Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast, Capt. Timothy
Matthews, have shown what
can be accomplished by con-

Maintenance Awards banquet Nov. 15 in Orlando.


ducting efficient and cost effec-
tive maintenance."
"This award is all about the
men and women that have
taken the AIRSpeed tools and
incorporated it into their work
place," Matthews said. "They
have done an outstanding
job increasing the production
efforts, providing parts to the
customer, and have saved mil-
lions of dollars doing it."
FRCSE Mayport, along with
ASD, performed more than 22
Lean, Six Sigma and 5S events
to reduce Time to Reliably
Replenish (TRR), reduce Hand
Off, and to achieve Theory
Of Constraints (TOC) design
goals. These initiatives helped
to reduce work center travel
distances, removed repeti-
tive work processes, increased
workflow, and created a cleaner
and more organized work envi-
ronment. Each of these process
improvements are followed up
with audits conducted by the
AIRSpeed training team to


ensure compliance over time.
Often, such events are per-
formed more than once so a
work centers and can lean out
even further waste over time.
The command has Qualified 15
Green Belts, two Black Belts
and has 23 personnel in the
training process today.
In 2006, FRCSE Mayport
aggressively pursued methods
to reduce "holes on the shelf."
The AIRSpeed team led then
by Lt. Cmdr. Calamug, Senior
Chief Aviation Electronics
Technician Kruger, Chief
Aviation Machinist's Mate Noe,
and the Production Control staff
led by Lt. Mingione, PRCS
Baker, Chief Aviation Structural
Mechanic Cowan and Aviation
Electronics Technician 1st Class
Ingraham combined NAVRIIP
and AIRSpeed tools to continu-
ally improve its design, moving
from a measurement of Ready-
for-Issue rate, to operating in a
Time Domain, focusing on the
movement of the right inven-


tory through time to ensure that
parts get to the shelf, known as
Buffer Management.
FRCSE Mayport incorporated
the Buffer Management Tool
software, Sight Opportunity


Worksheet (SOWS), Flight Hour
Cost Analysis Program (FCAP),
and the Continuous Process
Improvement Management
System (CPIMS) as part of their
day-to-day maintenance routine.

Works
By MCSN Cory Rose
Nassau Strike Group Public. ; "
The Nassau Strike Group
(NASSG) is taking part in
a Composite Unit Training
Exercise (COMPTUEX) Nov.
29 through Dec. 17, as the strike
group continues to prepare for
deployment.
Commander, 2nd Fleet sched-
uled the exercise that will be led
by Commander, Strike Force
Training Atlantic.
COMPTUEX is designed to
provide realistic training envi-
ronments for U.S. Naval forces
that closely replicate the oper-
ational challenges routinely
encountered during military
operations around the world.
The training will ensure that the
NASSG is prepared to support
any mission while providing


In COM
an opportunity to confirm joint
and cooperative operating pro-
cedures with other U.S. military
services and military services of
our neighbors and allies.
The exercise will ensure U.S.
forces attain the greatest capa-
bility, accentuating the need for
a scalable, deployable force on
short notice.
The NASSG is made up of
the amphibious assault ship
USS Nassau (LHA 4), amphib-
ious transport dock ship USS
Nashville (LPD 13), amphibious
dock landing ship USS Ashland
(LSD 48), guided-missile cruis-
er USS Philippine Sea (CG
58), guided-missile destroyers
USS Ross (DDG 71) and USS
Bulkeley (DDG 66), the attack
submarine USS Albany (SSN
753), and a Marine Landing


PTUEX
Force from the 24 MEU.
Participating as a simu-
lated coalition partner is USS
Gonzalez (DDG 66) and also
participating as simulated oppo-
sition forces are guided-missile
destroyer USS Farragut (DDG
99), and guided-missile frigates
USS Klakring (FFG 42), USS
Nicholas (FFG 47) and USS
Hawes (FFG 53).
Currently preparing for
its regularly scheduled 2008
deployment, the NASSG is
made up of more than 5,000
Sailors and Marines, and proj-
ects sea power ashore by main-
taining the capability of landing
amphibious forces by helicop-
ters, amphibious track vehicles,
air cushion landing craft, and
assault craft whenever and
wherever the need arises.

Military Families Enjoy Pal Day In Oldest City


By Kaylee LaRocque
Contributor
It was a beautiful, sunny day
as hundreds of military mem-
bers and their families spent
Saturday enjoying the city of St.
Augustine's numerous attrac-
tions at no cost during this
year's Pal Day. For the past
50 years, the USO Council of
St. Augustine and many of the
city's tourist attractions have
hosted this special day set aside
each December specifically for
First Coast military members
and their families to enjoy the



144


city's attractions free of charge.
Many came proudly wearing
their military uniforms or com-
mand ball caps to spend a few
hours visiting the sights and
to watch the annual Christmas
parade.
"We just started touring and
decided to try the Fountain
of Youth. I think that this is a
blessing to our family. It's a day
for us to have fun together and
it's really a nice positive experi-
ence," said Lt. Rickey Bennett
of CREDO at NS Mayport.
"And with the holiday season


underway, it's a nice break away
from all the hectic activities,"
added his wife, Janette.
The first Pal Day was held
in 1957 during the Korean War
Era when the USO Council in
St. Augustine wanted to recog-
nize military members and their
families and provide them with
something a little special. The
event proved so successful, that
it has continued since then every
first Saturday in December. By
opening their doors for free, the
city's businesses get a chance to
show their appreciation to the


service members who serve our
country and defend our free-
dom.
Military families enjoyed
favorite attractions such as
Ripley's Believe It or Not, 3D
World, The Fountain of Youth,
Alligator Farm, trolley rides,
Potter's Wax Museum, Castillo
de San Marcos, and numerous
other attractions.
Nearly 700 service personnel
and their families enjoyed a free
lunch at the Elks Lodge #829 in
St. Augustine.
"I just returned home from


deployment so this is a great
way to spend some special time
with my family. It's great that
the Navy members are being
taken care of through events
like this," said Seaman Alan
Motsinger, who was with this
wife, Natasha and daughter,
Allie.
"I think this is a really good
opportunity for families to have
fun together. The USO has done
a great thing by sponsoring
this event. We are enjoying the
attractions and plan to go enjoy
the free lunch with some of my

Part of the planning process
for selection to chief should
include a thorough service

Navy Personnel Command,
Sailors have easy access to their
records.
"Sailors can now view their
record in the same format and
image quality as the selection

when determining who will or
will not be promoted," said Paul
D. Wilder, senior analyst for
records management and policy.
"I ordered my service

Storekeeper 1st Class (AW)

"I have to ensure everything

NORAD Confirms Santa


Sleigh Test Flight A Success


From North American Aerospace De-
fense Command
North Pole and North
American Aerospace Defense
Command (NORAD) officials
conducted a full-blown test
flight with Santa and all nine
reindeer on Nov. 23, 2007, at
5:30 p.m. at the Pueblo, Colo.
Holiday Lighting Extravaganza.
The test flight included Santa's
journey from the North Pole
into Pueblo and confirmed
NORAD's ability to track the
jolly old elf and his team of
reindeer.
"Last year's test was such a
success that we requested the
North Pole consider the oppor-
tunity to conduct a similar test
again this year," said Major
Stacia Reddish, NORAD Tracks
Santa Project Officer. "This
year we tested three of the four
methods of our Santa tracking
system. The test was a phenom-


enal success with Santa offi-
cially launching from the North
Pole at approximately 5:30
p.m. and arriving in Pueblo at
approximately 6:00 p.m. "The
test flight definitely assures us
our precision tracking of St.
Nick is right on target for his
yuletide trip around the world
on December 24."
The NORAD Santa sleigh
test flight began with lift off at
the North Pole; NORAD radar
detected Santa mere seconds
after his lift off. After that,
radars then indicated Santa
zipped over the Northwest
Territories to the Yukon. About
200 miles from the Yukon-
Alaskan border, two CF-18s
from Canada's Air Force inter-
cepted and escorted Santa
to Alaska where they handed
him off to two American F-
15s. The F-15s then flew with
Santa for 200 miles, at which


time Santa increased his speed
to Christmas-Eve-Velocity en
route to the Pueblo Riverwalk
where he was met by hundreds
of children. From lift off until
Santa's return to the North Pole,
NORAD tested the satellite sys-
tems used to track the infrared
signature of Rudolph's bright
nose.
The famous fourth method
of Santa Tracking SantaCams
- was not used in the Santa
test flight as they are used
by NORAD exclusively on
Christmas Eve.
The NORAD Tracks Santa
Web site, www.noradsanta.
org went live on Nov. 16 and
has already received more
than 97,000 visitors to the site.
For more information on the
NORAD Tracks Santa program,
please contact NORAD Public
Affairs, at (719) 554-6889.


From Navy Personnel Command Public

With advancement results
released Nov. 16, many Sailors
are celebrating, while others
look for steps to increase their
opportunities during the next
advancement cycle.
"Superior performance is still
the most important factor in
getting advanced," according to
Vice Adm. J.C. Harvey, Chief of
Naval Personnel (CNP). "The
weight of the performance mark
average from a Sailor's evalua-
tion promotion recommendation
has increased by seven percent.
The weight of service-in-pay
grade and pass-not-advanced
points has decreased by approx-
imately one-half," Harvey said.
"It is extremely important for
commanding officers, executive
officers, and command master
chiefs to communicate with
those who did not get advanced
this cycle," Harvey added.
According to CNP, one thing
the chain of command can do
to assist Sailors not selected
for advancement is schedule
a career development board
(CDB). A CDB provides per-
sonnel the opportunity to dis-
cuss their career progression,
the health of their rating, and
their short and long-term goals
for the future.
It allows a Sailor and his or
her chain of command to review
the Sailor's record and identify


ways to improve competitive-
ness in future advancement
cycles.
According to the Navy's
Center for Career Development
(CCD), located at Navy
Personnel Command, some
questions a Sailor should ask
during the board include:
What can I do to gain more
authority and responsibility in
my current position to make me
more competitive for the next
higher pay grade?
I passed but didn't advance
the last advancement exam,
what changes can I make to
improve my chances next time?
In order to make me more
competitive for advancement
and to round out my rating
expertise, what should my next
assignment or duty station be?
What can members of this
board do to assist me both pro-
fessionally and personally in
order to help me achieve suc-
cess?
What is the status of my rat-
ing? Advancement is extremely
limited in overmanned rates and
Sailors may want to consider
a rating conversion to increase
advancement opportunities.
Every Sailor should have a
mentor and should also look


for opportunities to mentor
other Sailors who can benefit
from their diverse experienc-
es, according to Chief Navy
Counselor (AW) Kelly L.
Strickland, a career counselor
at CCD. A mentor is a trusted
counselor or guide who is look-
ing out for the best interests of
his or her Sailor. This includes
advancement opportunities, but
also includes helping the Sailor
reach other personal and profes-
sional goals.
"It is extremely impor-
tant to have a mentor," added
Strickland. "It's great to have
that person in your career to
receive information and points
of view from."
It's never too early to start
planning for the next advance-
ment cycle.
"I suggest that Sailors who
did not advance this cycle start
studying again," said Strickland.
"You should also realize perfor-
mance carries the most weight
in advancement. Look at your
last evaluation and improve in
the areas you scored less in."
