  * * The Latest Guidance as of June 23rd, 2022 - Revised Pass-in-Review Policy * * *

Recruit Training Command is lifting the masking mandate. There is no mask requirement for recruits, staff, and guests attending Pass-In-Review. The number of guests allowed has increased to four, unless there are 11 or more divisions when the maximum number of guests is three. If you have already submitted your guest security access form listing two individuals, please have additional guest information ready to provide to your recruit when they call. All guests must have a ticket including active duty personnel and veterans. (Children 2 & under do not count toward the guest limit.) COVID-19 immunizations are still required for guest attendance. Guests 12 or older need to provide proof of immunization (14 days post final dose,) in the form of a COVID-19 vaccination record card, to attend. If you are unable to provide proof of vaccination, you will not be issued tickets and will not be able to attend graduation. REMINDER: Policies regarding the graduation ceremony can change at any time due to changes in our health protection status and policy. 

Please continue to follow RTC social media accounts and check www.bootcamp.navy.mil for the most up-to-date information. For specific questions and inquiries, contact the RTC Public Affairs Office at RTC.PAO@Navy.mil

NAVY LINKS OF THE DAY

Fire breaks out aboard USS Milwaukee

An electrical fire broke out aboard the littoral combat ship Milwaukee while it was undergoing maintenance at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, Friday afternoon.

Thirteen people who suffered smoke inhalation were treated at the scene and released, and officials reported no other injuries.

The fire was called away at 1:41 p.m.

Bravo Zulu to this petty officer who rescued a moBravo Zulu to this petty officer who rescued a mom and her kids from their submerged car

A Navy petty officer helped save a mother and her two young sons Monday after their car careened into a water-filled ditch in Indiana, the sea service said in a press release.

Culinary Specialist (Submarine) 1st Class Bobby Weaver was driving to his recruiting gig in Valparaiso, Indiana, when he saw the car in front of him lose control, strike a stationary emergency vehicle and veer off the road into a deep ditch.

Most US F-35s temporarily grounded as ejection seat issue threatens jets worldwide

The U.S. military discovered a problem with the ejection seats used across its F-35 Joint Strike Fighter fleet in April, but waited three months to ground those aircraft flown by the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps to fully investigate the issue, multiple sources told Air Force Times Friday.

Officials initially saw the problem as a potentially isolated incident. But an ongoing investigation sourced the issue to the production line, prompting waves of temporary stand-downs this week.

No more automatic Global War on Terrorism service medals, DoD says

Signaling the end of a 21-year era, the Department of Defense has told the military services to sharply restrict the award of the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal beginning Sept. 11, according to a memo obtained by Military Times.

The June 24 memo, signed by the DoD’s undersecretary for personnel and readiness, Gilbert Cisneros, also limits award of the Inherent Resolve Campaign Medal to just troops who serve on the ground in Syria or operate within 12 nautical miles of its coast or airspace. The policy went into effect July 1.

3rd Fleet boss proposes new group to coordinate Pacific securityrd Fleet boss proposes new group to coordinate Pacific security

JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR HICKAM, Hawaii — The U.S. is closer to conflict in the Pacific than it is to peace, the head of U.S. 3rd Fleet said, and the command structure must change to reflect that.

Vice Adm. Michael Boyle has called for a centralized command-and-control structure — a standing maritime force similar to those elsewhere around the globe — that could rapidly respond to a crisis in the Indo-Pacific region.
