Navy Personnel Command visiting Japan bases to discuss changes to programs
TOKYO — The Navy Personnel Command is in Japan to educate sailors on the newest changes to Navy programs, including Perform to Serve and Enlisted Retention Boards.
These briefings are a chance for sailors to get details about the programs that affect them, said Sasebo Naval Base Command Master Chief Richard Hatton.
“It would behoove sailors to attend.” Hatton said.
The Fleet Engagement Team will travel to Sasebo, Yokosuka Naval Base and Naval Air Facility Atsugi before wrapping up its tour Sept. 14.
“This is a rare opportunity for sailors to talk to the subject matter experts on these programs,” said the regional career counselor Chief Petty Officer Kim Covington. “These are the people writing the instructions for these programs, so if you have questions, this is the time to ask.”
Briefing times are as follows:
Thursday at the base chapel: 9 a.m. — Officer community brief. 10 a.m. — Officer and chiefs. 1 p.m. — E-6 and below.
Friday at the base chapel: 9 a.m. — E-6 and below.
