National Disability Employment Awareness Month

National Disability Employment Awareness Month is an opportunity for us to celebrate the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities and to educate ourselves about the value of an inclusive workforce. This year's theme, "America's Workforce: Empowering All," emphasizes the importance of guaranteeing that all Americans have access to the services necessary to enable their success.

In our country, there are 30 million American adults with disabilities. While less than 20 percent were employed in 2017, their knowledge and skills are increasingly valued and employment rates have been rising. The Department of Defense recognizes its role in advancing disability inclusiveness and awareness in the workplace. The Department of the Navy and Marine Corps team ensure that applicants have full and fair consideration for job vacancies, making sure that no qualified individuals are discriminated against because of their disability. Additionally, the Navy and Marine Corps will continue to provide reasonable accommodations for those employees or applicants with disabilities, ensuring equal employment opportunities.

NAVSUP carries this commitment throughout our hiring processes. We succeed only through the talent and drive of our competent, inclusive and diverse workforce. We constantly work to attract, develop and retain the best talent for our team. And with a foundation of respect, integrity and mentorship we will continue to grow and adapt to the emerging needs of our worldwide customer base.  

During National Disability Employment Awareness Month and throughout the year, NAVSUP recognizes and appreciates the talents of our workers with disabilities and their significant contributions in making us ready, resourceful and responsive!

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

During Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we join our nation to help prevent
domestic violence by reminding our service members, civilians, and their
families about the resources available to support victims, plan for safety,
and rehabilitate offenders.  

Each of us shares the responsibility to prevent, recognize, and report
domestic violence. Domestic violence can be physical, emotional, or sexual,
and it can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, race or age. Injury,
isolation, humiliation and stalking are some of the most visible signs of an
abusive relationship. Everyone has the right to live without fear, and be
free from the threat of violence and abuse. 

There are numerous resources available to help, so don't hesitate to reach
out if you, or someone you know, is experiencing abuse. Military members can
find assistance through the Fleet and Family Support Program website: www.cnic.navy.mil/ffr/family_readiness/fleet_and_family_support_program.html
. Civilian employees can get assistance from the DON Civilian Employee
Assistance Program at (844) 366-2327 / TTY: (888) 262-7848 or online at
https://DONCEAP.foh.psc.gov. Another resource available to all is the
National Domestic Violence Hotline at (800) 799-7233 / TTY: (800) 787-3224
or online at www.thehotline.org.  

I invite all personnel to familiarize themselves with the ways to recognize
signs of domestic violence as well as the resources to combat and prevent
domestic abuse. Together, we are stronger when we actively care for the
safety and well-being of each other.

U.S. Navy Celebrates 243rd Birthday!

Forged by the sea on October 13, 1775, the Continental Congress established the Continental Navy to wrest sea control from the British. For nearly two and a half centuries, the United States Navy has been tempered and toughened to become the largest, most advanced and most lethal fighting force the world has ever known. 

From our original six frigates to today's elite expeditionary, aviation, submarine and surface forces, the Navy team wields the toughness and integrity needed to meet the challenges of today's increasingly complex global security environment. Our Navy provides a constant, forward-presence in areas where our interests are being challenged, and because of the efforts of our global supply team, we are ready to deter, defend or strike when called upon. 

The supply community sustains our global presence and we must continue to improve the readiness and lethality of our forces. Our Navy's strength emanates from the initiative, integrity, and grit exhibited by every member of our team - providing the critical material, services and quality-of-life support needed to remain on station, vigilant, and ready to respond.  

I am incredibly proud to be a part of this world-class team.

Happy Birthday, Navy!

National Hispanic Heritage Month

The National Hispanic Heritage Month's theme for 2018, "Hispanics: One Endless Voice to Enhance Our Traditions," reminds us to celebrate and recognize the contributions Hispanic Americans have made to our country, enriching our culture with a strong commitment to family, faith, hard work, and service. They serve honorably in our Armed Forces, defending the values we hold dear, and provide leadership and experience across our government and our communities. They have transformed industries with innovation, influenced our national culture and identity, and created powerful movements for justice.

Hispanic Americans also have a long history in our Navy. They have served in every American conflict, like Lt. George Farragut, who fought in the American Revolution. His legacy continued with his son, Adm. David Glasgow Farragut, who fought in the War of 1812 and Civil War, and was remembered for his tenacity during the Battle of Mobile Bay expressed by his command "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" Edward Hidalgo became the first Hispanic Secretary of the Navy in 1979, and endeavored to recruit more Hispanic Americans into the Navy. In 2006, Joe R. Campa became the first Hispanic Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy. In 2010, Rear Adm. Yvette M. Davids, then a Commander, was the first Hispanic female to command a U.S. Navy warship.

Hispanic Americans continue to proudly serve our Nation and make their mark on history, holding every position in the Navy ranging from seaman to four-star Admirals and policymakers. Today, 17 percent of the Navy's enlisted force identifies as Hispanic American, including about 1,100 senior and master chiefs. Eight percent of the officers, including six admirals, identify as the same. In addition, there are more than 12,000 Hispanic American civilians working for the Department of the Navy. 

During National Hispanic Heritage Month, let us take time to learn about Hispanic Americans and their contributions to our Nation and Navy, further growing our appreciation and enhancing our culture of inclusion.

Priorities for NAVSUP Enterprise and Supply Corps

Team, 

As Commander, NAVSUP and 48th Chief of Supply Corps, my (and our) primary
duty will always be to ensure our supply community efficiently and
effectively does its part to support fleet readiness and lethality, while
remaining postured to sustain the fight. To this end, my priorities are
enhancing fleet readiness, continuing NAVSUP's reform efforts, improving our
auditability, and taking care of our people. 

FLEET READINESS 

Our supply community is uniquely poised to improve the readiness and
lethality of our Navy and Joint forces. NAVSUP will provide an important
presence in shipyards and Fleet Readiness Centers that allows us significant
sustainment insight across all platforms. Our team must leverage its skills
and vision to increase the speed and reliability of our supply chains, and
accelerate the return of ships and aircraft to the fleet and flight lines. 

REFORM 

The world is changing, the Navy is changing, and we must keep pace with the
change. We must continue NAVSUP's reform and modernization efforts with a
focus on improving our processes and increasing speed of support. We are
rallying with our key partners in Navy sustainment to find innovative
solutions to improve business practices and communication. Ultimately, our
processes must achieve best value, balance cost and performance, and ensure
success through the last tactical mile. All of this can only be accomplished
with your efforts, the hard-working people of NAVSUP. 

AUDITABILITY 

Improving our auditability supports our readiness goals by managing risk and
challenging our current operating assumptions. The audit process enables our
leaders to make more confident decisions and overcome challenges by being
able to balance priorities, customer service, and strategic systems
management. The audits will provide transparency and assurance that we are
using the taxpayer's dollars appropriately and efficiently. Meeting our
defense leaders' call for fiscal and asset accountability will remain a top
priority.

PEOPLE 

NAVSUP succeeds only through the talent and drive of our workforce, and we
must take care of our Navy supply teams around the globe by instilling the
right culture, right training, and right focus. We will continue to promote
a culture of character and competence, and develop a community that values
diversity and inclusion. Through our recruiting and training programs, we
will evolve our workforce, build to new levels of performance, and we will
attract, develop and retain the team's talent to enable mission success.
Finally, leadership and mentorship provide the platform we need to grow,
adapt, and push through whatever challenges may lie ahead.

We have a key role in building the Navy the nation needs. Our focus will
always be on the fleet, on the Sailors at sea and ashore who keep the Navy
strong, and all warfighters in harm's way, on ensuring we do our part toward
success in operations, from training to effective combat engagements. We
will always be ready to serve, ready to sustain the fight, and "Ready for
Sea."

Thank you for all that you do.  Keep making a difference!

National Suicide Prevention Month

The Navy's "1 Small Act" suicide prevention initiative urges us all to take care of ourselves and each other, and to learn how and when to intervene if you see a shipmate struggling. Self-care is more than just getting enough sleep and exercising regularly. It also includes activities that can enhance psychological and emotional well-being, such as journaling, meditation, social connection, counseling or therapy. To be happy, we all rely on good relationships with our families, friends and members of the community. Being a supportive friend, coworker or shipmate means accounting for one another.

Be alert for behaviors that may indicate someone is at immediate risk. The mnemonic "IS PATH WARM" spells out the warning signs: Ideation, Substance abuse, Purposelessness, Anxiety, Trapped, Hopelessness, Withdrawal, Anger, Recklessness and Mood changes. Remember that the signs may differ from person to person, and that you don't need to see every sign to act. If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, don't leave them alone, and call 911.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24/7 for everyone at 1-800-SUICIDE (784-2433). For the Military Crisis Line provides 24/7 confidential support call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and press 1, or text to 838255, or visit www.militarycrisisline.net for chat support. Your local chaplain, Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), Navy Civilian Employee Assistance Program (DONCEAP), and medical treatment facilities are also available to help. For the 2018 Navy Suicide Prevention Month "1 Small ACT Toolkit" and more information, visit www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/support/21st_Century_Sailor/suicide_Prevention.

Our Navy culture is built with the support we provide to each other. By exemplifying values such as a strong sense of community and commitment to the well-being of ourselves and others, we can help each other be more resilient. During National Suicide Prevention Month and throughout the year, I encourage you to account for yourself and each other, and help make our lives brighter and more purposeful.
