  2. 2. Overview• Due to the floundering economy of recent memory, the United States Navy, among other branches of the military, has had to downsize the working force of enlisted sailors. The Navy’s means of doing this was through a program called Perform To Serve (or PTS) introduced in February of 2003 (NAVADMIN 03-050, 2003) as a force reshaping tool. 2
  3. 3. Overview• There are a number of issues that have arisen for the Navy due to the implementation of Perform To Serve and its subsequent algorithm.• All depend about: dependability, comprised, work ethic.• Change is emotional for many people; many sailors join the Navy planning to make it a career, and when that does not pan out, it can be heartbreaking 3
  4. 4. Overview• In 2011 alone, 6,700 sailors were discharged despite a desire to reenlist (Steele, 2012). With the economy as it stands and unemployment reaching high levels, the influx of the unemployed sailors is adding to a prevailing desperation across the country. 4
  5. 5. Opportunity in Adversity.• Problems: Family members that are left behind during deployment are constantly juggling to keep up with the lives they were once accustom too prior to their significant other deploys for 6 to 9 months. Stress on the families is growing into a epidemic that requires the military to stand up entirely new devision to support the reverse post traumatic stress that is being felt from these deployments. 5
  6. 6. Opportunity in Adversity.• Solutions: We are the foot runners of the military bases world wide. If you need to register a car and your spouse is too busy to do so, we can help. If the sitter is not available and you have to pick up your kids from school or pick up someone from the airport, Perform to Serve can help. 6
  7. 7. Opportunity in Adversity.• ¿How does this solution works?• It is simple. Use a computer or smart phone to request a task or errand using text, voice to text, or video. Select the amount you are willing to pay or leave blank for the troopers to give you their pricer. The network of troopers in and around your military base will be instantly notified via the sms text service or via the google map geolocation maps of the task.• The trooper can then accept the task, contact you via hour voip anonymous call back phone network to make final arrangements to carry out the task.• Once the trooper is done, he is paid directly via Amazon Web Pay or via free bank to bank transfer. 7
  8. 8. Opportunity in Adversity• ¿Is military deployment work ups really a problem?• Well according to NMFAs Serving the Home Front report note that: "Training is a continuous step... and the challenge lies in reaching the families who need it.“• Less that one-half of the respondents reported a consistent level of family support throughout predeployment, deployment, and post deployment phases and 17 percent report no support was available . 8
  9. 9. Opportunity in Adversity• National Guard Spouse responded saying " I think the hardest part for my family was the fact that as a Guard family, we had never been through a deployment before. I knew nothing about that life, the phases, anything. I felt very unsure about where my resources were and who to call for help. I really think that, regardless of the military status, every family needs to have a basic knowledge of deployment life.. be it written resources, workshops, what have you." 9
  10. 10. Opportunity in Adversity• Solutions:• We have a unique virtual assistance network built 100% of the strongest force alive.• We take the certifications and skills of the active duty members, build it into a resume style profile, solicited veterans owned companies looking for those skills and connect the service members with those small veteran owned business.• You manage your own schedule, sign up for the jobs that are relevant to your with out having to quite your day time job. 10
