It's easy and fast to update, just go to your "Personal Info" tab in MOL, select the "Family Readiness" and update your info, spouses, family members or whoever you would like to receive official command communication. CONAD PENTAGON ROAD SHOW CONAD will be conducting a road show at the Pentagon every Wednesday unless otherwise advised. Located is in Room 4B548 (Division of Public Affairs Conference RM) from 0900-1400. CONAD will continue with the road shows every Wednesday at the same location in order to provide administrative support for the Marines who work in the Pentagon. If any of your Marines need any administrative support I ask that you direct them our way. CONAD sends e-mails the Marines that are due to have their triennial audits, dependent over 21 audits and CSB audits completed on weekly basis. This is a great time to have your Marines meet this requirement. DECLARE YOUR MOTORCYCLE OWNERSHIP If you own or operate a motorcycle, Marine Corps regulations require that you report such ownership/operation to your command. ALMAR 014-08 which was published in 2008 mandated that all Marines declare motorcycle ownership (even if cycle is not at their current duty station or is not being currently ridden) and/or ridership within 48 hours from checking into their command. In many cases this is not happening. Failure to comply with the ALMAR subjects the violator to punitive actions under the UCMJ and possible loss of benefits in the event of a motorcycle accident or mishap involving bodily injury. Declaration of motorcycle ownership and/or ridership is easy. Contact the HQBN Safety and Environmental Officer at 703-693-2501 and request that a Motorcycle Owner Information Sheet via email or fax, fill it out and send it back. That's all that is required. Contact GySgt Dunston at 703-614-7190/91 or Maurice.dunston@usmc.mil for more information.

All facilities should have their air conditioning system properly operating by May 5th. There may be some unseasonable warm or cool periods during this transition, and building occupants may experience some discomfort. Based on weather forecasts and past history, this is the best time to do the conversion. During the conversion period, please refrain from calling in service orders for "no heat" or "no air conditioning" unless it is an emergency or in a facility that has been designated as a Key Mission Critical Facility. DPW work crews will be diverted from the above priorities only for emergency repair. In general, heat and air conditioning emergencies are defined as instances in which indoor temperatures are below 55 degrees or above 90 degrees. For any questions, concerns, or emergency repairs please contact Sgt Salama (S-4 Office) by phone at 703- 693-4735 / 703-310-8562 or by e-mail at mina.salama@usmc.mil / hnhl_s4a@usmc.mil.
