The board has no quotas and is a performance-driven review of senior enlisted personnel conducted primarily by senior enlisted personnel to identify Sailors whose continued service is no longer in the best interest of the Navy. Among the many factors reviewed, documented misconduct and/or substan dard performance within the past three years will be a consideration in determining whether to continue a board-eligible Sailor. As outlined in the NAVADMIN, the board will review records of active component (AC) and full time support (FTS) E-7 to E-9 Sailors with at least 19 years of active service computed from their active duty service date as of Aug. 31, 2018 and three-years time-inrate (TIR) as of Aug. Navy announces FY-19 Senior Enlisted Continuation BoardBY C AR OL WILLIAMSNAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Jacksonville Corporate CommunicationsWith our minds on backyard barbeques, trips to the beach and ice cold popsicles on a hot day, it is easy to forget that summertime is also the most popular season for PCS moves. As families move into and out of Key West, your Household Goods Processing Office is work ing around the clock to facilitate your move in the best possible manner. We got a chance to sit down with Ms. Dawn Kissel, Lead Transportation Assistant for Naval Air Station Key West, who offered words of advice for service members and their families as they prepare to conduct a PCS move to or from Key West. Im always surprised by the number of service members I assist who had no idea my office even existed, said Kissel. I am ready and available to assist customers in need of HHG counseling, an explanation of the process, or to help track down their belongings. I can provide the most assistance before and during a Sailors move. I encourage everyone to stay proactive and reach out for assistance before their move to be sure theyve checked all the boxes. Because of the semiremote nature of Key West, only one local car rier supports the majority of inbound and outbound moves to the island. With a higher-than-usual volume of moves this summer, the companys employees are clocking 20-hour days, 7 days a week to support military families as they pack up their belongings and ship out to their next duty station, or settle in to call Key West home.

Nov. 16, 2018, is the last day for commands to add or delete a candidate from the eligibility list. Any Sailor on the eligibility list after Nov. 16, 2018 will be reviewed by the SECB. Board results will be posted on BUPERS On-Line for command access only, and commanding officers will be notified via a Personal For NAVADMIN when this occurs.

These decrease time away from the mission, work, and family. The Navy Care app enables patients to have a live, virtual visit with a clinician, using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Its private, secure, and free. Navy Care catapults the military health system into the 21st century, said Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Patrick Goldsmith, an independent duty corpsman at Naval Branch Health Clinic Jacksonville. The app provides real-time access to care for Sailors and Marines in remote environments, and decreases the warfighters time away from the workplace. Active duty, retirees and families can also use the virtual app for follow-up medical visits. The Navy Care app allows Sailors and Marines to complete their Period Health Assessment from their unit or home, decreasing the amount of time away from their job. Clinicians work from their office at the hospital or branch health clinic, during a virtual visit. The patient and clinician see and talk to each other in real time, using Navy Cares secure app or website, from any video-enabled device (such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer). The best thing is that its private, secure, and free. Patients simply schedule with their medical provider and connect. Navy Care virtual visits are available for many types of follow-up visits in allergy, behavioral health, clinical pharmacy, diabetes wellness team, family medicine, IDC clinic, neurology/ sleep medicine, nutrition, orthopedics/podiatry, and periodic health assessment. In addition, virtual visits are available for breastfeeding support and chaplain services. Navy Care is an extension of value-based care, which focuses on improving health outcomes and access for patients. The app delivers convenient care with the quality of a face-to-face visit. If the patients medical needs are appropriate for a virtual visit, the patients provider will discuss Navy see MEDICAL page 5July 131939 Rear Adm.

NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Jacksonville (FLCJ) recently sent a team of U.S. Marine Corps household goods (HHG) inspectors to Key West to assist with quality control inspections and help to expedite delayed moves and HHG shipments. According to Lt. Jessica Chamberlain, NAS Key West site director for NAVSUP FLCJ, the extra boots on the ground are beginning to make an impact. This small team of Marines, coupled with our resident experts in the NAS Key West Joint Personal Property Support Office (JPPSO) are working hand-in-hand with our customers to clear backlogs and assist during the busy season. We recognize the frustration and stress that can come with PCS moves, and we are working tirelessly to enhance customer service to our military families. The JPPSOs team of professionals will assist with tracking shipments, resolving scheduling conflicts and coordination with assigned carriers to ensure a successful and timely move to their next duty station. The Personal Property and Household Goods Offices are specifically to support service members as they execute their moves and transport their belongings and families to carry out the military mission. I am committed to supporting each and every customer who calls or walks through my door, said Kissel. I love helping military families navigate the moving process and get them and their belongings where they need to be.
