This is a great opportunity for hard-charging Sailors to help form and develop the next generation of Sailors! COMMAND CLIMATE SURVEYS UPDATE The DEOMI Command Climate survey system has been restored and is available for commands to use while conducting command climate surveys. As a reminder, all commanding officers are required to conduct a command climate survey 90 days after assuming command, with annual surveys during their tenure as commanding officer. Since the system was down, the following accommodations have been made, if your commands annual survey was due between 1 October 2012 - 31 March 2013, conduct your survey before 30 June 2013; if your commands annual survey was due after 1 April 2013 complete the survey before 30 September 2013. Read NAVADMIN 079/13 for more information and ensure your command is in compliance! KEEP WHAT YOU’VE EARNED CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED The KWYE campaign seeks to encourage responsible drinking among Sailors by celebrating the achievements in their Navy careers. Through recognition of their hard work and dedication, from boot camp to advancement exams, job training and deployments Sailors are reminded of their accomplishments—and how much they have to lose if they make poor choices regarding alcohol. Remind your Shipmates to keep what they have earned, and to never leave a Shipmate behind. More information can be found at t.aspx.
