Navy’s 245th Birthday

October 13, 1775 marks the Navy’s 245th birthday and commemorates the day the Continental Congress authorized the procurement, outfitting, manning and dispatch of the first two Continental Navy vessels to cruise in search of munitions ships supplying the British Army in America. After the American War of Independence, the U.S. Constitution empowered the new Congress “to provide and maintain a navy.” Acting on this authority, Congress established the Department of the Navy on April 30, 1798. Since then, the Navy has stood the watch as the Nation’s forward deployed presence 24/7, 365 days a year.

The United States Navy is entrusted by the citizens of this country with the first line of our national defense. The burden of this responsibility is enormous. Our end of this covenant of trust with the American people is simple … we are charged to build and operate the best possible fighting force to protect their lives, property and freedoms.

The theme of this year’s Navy birthday is “Victory at Sea,” closing the 75th anniversary commemoration of World War II, recognizing 245 years of warfighting excellence, and relating them to modern Sailors who carry that heritage forward today. Beginning with Pearl Harbor and throughout every battle during the War, victory was achieved by heroes, including those who provided superior logistics support and ensuring our Sailors were prepared to fight. These Sailors came from diverse backgrounds across our great nation and served through adversity, far from home, with honor, courage, and commitment.

Today our Navy is Fleet focused, global postured, and ready. I am honored to serve with each and every one of you and together, we will continue to enable victories at sea.

Happy 245th Birthday, Navy!

FY21 Indefinite Recall Opportunities

The Supply Corps has opened up limited opportunities for junior lieutenant commander Reserve or FTS Supply Corps officers to continue their career in the active component as 3100 officers. Your ability to deliver strategic depth and operational capability to the Navy, Marine Corps, and Joint Forces is key to meeting the Supply Corps mission and ensuring readiness of our Naval Forces around the globe.

Officers interested in pursuing one of the indefinite recall opportunities should have strong performance records, an educational background in business, or other disciplines with demonstrated quantitative orientation (i.e., engineering or mathematics), completed at least four years of cumulative active commissioned service (may include MOBs, ADSWs, IAs, etc.), and have no more than three years as a lieutenant commander. In order to be competitive as a 3100, a master’s degree is strongly recommended. Officers that have served previously in tough visible tours that balance Supply Corps principle competency development and operational experience is preferred.

Officers selected for these opportunities must be ready to fill leadership and management positions at sea or overseas upon accession to the Active Component. As such, officers must have or must be able to pass a sea/overseas duty medical screening prior to reporting to their assigned duty location/platform.

A board will convene in the fall of 2020 to review packages and make selections. Applications are due 24 October, 2020. For additional eligibility and package requirements, please contact the career counselor (901) 874-4621 or by emailing supplycorpscareercounselor@navy.mil. A sample package can be found on the career counselor website at:

https://www.public.navy.mil/BUPERSNPC/OFFICER/DETAILING/RLSTAFFCORPS/SUPPLY/Pages/CareerCounselor.aspx

The range and responsibilities held by our Supply Corps officers has never been broader than it is today—and by all accounts we continue to rise to the challenge and perform superbly. I look forward to your applications.

Message from the Commander
25 SEP 2020

National Suicide Prevention Month

September is National Suicide Prevention Month. Our goal is not to educate during a single month, but instead serve as reminder of a year-round effort to care for your shipmates, co-workers, family, and friends. We must stay vigilant for others and our own well-being.

The 2020 Defense Suicide Prevention Office's theme is "Connect to Protect." This phrase is especially relevant today as we continue to navigate the physical and mental health and wellness effects of a global pandemic environment. Together, we need to promote adaptive, virtual communication strategies that help foster a sense of connection and support among our communities. Promoting an open and inclusive environment improves our well-being, whether we are empowering our shipmates to succeed, deepening our bonds with friends, or expressing empathy with family members when they’re going through a rough patch.

The Navy Suicide Prevention Program’s "Every Sailor, Every Day" 1 Small ACT initiative continues to remind us all that one simple ACT can save a life. It is essential to communicate with individuals, emphasize they are not alone, and remind them seeking help is a sign of strength. ACT stands for:

A - Ask questions to reach out to a person who may need assistance
C - Care, so they know they are valued
T - Treat by getting them the help they need and do not leave them alone

Your 1 Small ACT can make all the difference.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24/7 for everyone at 1-800-SUICIDE (784-2433). For the Military Crisis Line 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 more information, visit
www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/support/21st_Century_Sailor/suicide_Prevention.

In addition, the Crisis Text Line is available for help. It's a free, 24/7 support line available to anyone dealing with depression. Text CONNECT to 741741. Now more than ever, it is critical to be there for our shipmates, family, and friends. You know them best. If you see even a small change in their behavior, trust your instincts. Reach out. Ask how they are doing and actively listen to their response. Mental health is as important as physical health. Just letting someone know you are there can make a lifetime of difference.

National POW/MIA Recognition Day

National Prisoners of War/Missing in Action (POW/MIA) Recognition Day provides Americans the opportunity to offer remembrance, honor, and reverence to those who were POWs and those still missing. On September 18, Americans across the nation will gather to honor service members and civilians who were held captive and returned, who remain MIA in countries around the world, as well as affected families and friends.

The black and white banner that symbolizes America's POW/MIAs serves as a reminder of the sacrifices our service members and their families make, and have made, to defend our nation. For every POW/MIA Recognition Day observed since 1982, the flag has flown just below the stars and stripes at the White House - the only flag to ever do so. In 1998, Congress ordered it to also be displayed on Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day.

Just a few weeks ago, the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) announced they had identified the remains of a Sailor killed during World War II. Navy Coxswain Layton T. Banks, 20, of Dallas, Texas was assigned to the battleship USS Oklahoma which was moored at Ford Island, Pearl Harbor, when the ship was attacked by Japanese aircraft on Dec. 7, 1941. The USS Oklahoma sustained multiple torpedo hits which caused it to quickly capsize. The attack on the ship resulted in the deaths of 429 crewmen, including Banks who will now be buried Oct. 24, 2020, in Plano, Texas. DPAA’s mission is to provide the fullest possible accounting for our missing personnel to their families and the nation. They relentlessly pursue finding and recovering the remains of our fallen heroes. For decades our nation has conducted joint field activities to investigate crash and burial sites, and interview the local population for clues regarding our missing service members.

Please join me in paying tribute to heroes like Layton Banks. Take time today to pause, reflect, and remember those who have endured tremendous pain and suffering and those who went missing. We should never forget the sacrifices made by our service members, past and present, that allow us to enjoy the freedoms we have today.

Patriot Day - Nineteenth Anniversary of 9/11

Flags will fly at half-mast today to observe the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. After 19 years, on this Day of Remembrance, we honor and remember the legacy of 9/11 by uniting with our neighbors and communities. Most of us can recall exactly where we were and what we felt as the events unfolded before our eyes.

The world soon realized that America was under attack. Terrorist hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into the World Trade Center’s North Tower in New York City at 8:46 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. That unbelievable event was soon followed by United Airlines Flight 175 crashing into the South Tower 17 minutes later. Fifty-one minutes after the attack on our nation began, American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon. At 10:03 a.m., United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after passengers and crew members courageously fought four al-Qaeda terrorists for control of the plane.

First responders, local communities, and nations across the globe quickly rose together in the spirit of unity to defeat terrorism.

On this anniversary of 9/11, remember the nearly 3,000 lives lost during the attacks of this fateful date.

Let us remember those selfless citizens, first responders, and our service members who risked their lives and put themselves in harm’s way and continue to fight every day for the safety and freedom of the American people.

The 9/11 attacks were intended to diminish our resolve, instead they strengthened our national will, bringing Americans of all backgrounds together. Over more than two centuries, we have shown ourselves to be a resilient people, ready to stand up for each other, united, to defend our values and way of life.

Thank you for your endurance and commitment. Since that day, we have all been running extraordinarily hard to defeat this evil force. Today’s Global Power Competition is certain to continue, and get even more competitive. Stay strong, stay focused and keep pressing.

NEVER FORGET
