From RTC:

New Guidance for Pass-In-Review Ceremonies Beginning August 13th

Recruit Training Command will re-open boot camp graduation, or the Pass-In-Review ceremony, for a limited number of family members and guests beginning with graduation ceremonies August 13. Each recruit can invite two guests (max, no exceptions) to attend in person. (Children 2 & under do not count toward the guest limit.) 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. In accordance with DOD and local policy and in order to ensure the health and safety of all, every person attending is required to wear face masks and observe social distancing protocols. If you are unable to provide proof of vaccination, you will not be able to attend, and will not be issued tickets to attend. If you are unable to wear a mask, you will not be able to attend, and will not be allowed into the facility. This policy is subject to change as leadership continues to monitor the spread and impact of the Coronavirus. Please continue to follow RTC social media accounts for updates and check www.bootcamp.navy.mil for the most up-to-date information. For specific questions and inquiries, contact the RTC Public Affairs Office.

NAVY LINKS OF THE DAY

China protests passage of US destroyer through Taiwan Strait

China on Tuesday protested the passage of a U.S. Navy destroyer through the Taiwan Strait, calling it a deliberate move to undermine stability in the region.

The U.S. Navy said in a statement the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer Milius “conducted a routine Taiwan Strait transit” on Tuesday “in accordance with international law.”

The Navy is working to ease the supply-chain shortage in LA County

The Navy is working with the Oxnard Harbor District in Port Hueneme in Los Angeles County to provide direct support in decreasing port congestion in hopes of reducing the national supply-chain shortage.

The collaboration is part a Joint Use Agreement that was first signed in 2002, allowing the Navy, when activated, to support commercial supply chain logistics by authorizing commercial use of certain facilities and areas aboard Naval Base Ventura County, freeing up space to move and store cargo.

USS Ronald Reagan sailor dies in Japan

A sailor assigned to the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan has died in Japan.

The body of Machinist’s Mate Fireman Brandon Forbes, 20, of Maple Heights, Ohio, was discovered Friday, according to Lt. Cmdr. Dawn Stankus, a spokesperson for the carrier. He had been absent without authorization for days, she said. A phone call was made to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service Friday morning, and Forbes’ body was found on Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka.

Army cadets raid Annapolis, steal the wrong goat from Navy

The recent cold snap along the East Coast can mean only one thing: The Army-Navy football game is afoot, and with that, the time-honored tradition of stealing the schools’ mascots, a mule and goat, respectively.

The Naval Academy adopted the goat as its mascot in 1904 and all goats have since been lovingly dubbed Bill. West Point officially made the mule its mascot in 1899 without bestowing a name.

The household goods contract is protested — again — with military families caught in the middle

Two unsuccessful bidders have filed protests of the recently awarded $6.2 billion contract aimed at fixing the long-standing problems with moving service members’ household goods.

U.S. Transportation Command officials confirmed that they were notified that protests were filed Nov. 23 with the U.S. Government Accountability Office by American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier Group and Connected Global Solutions.
