A Time of Great Consequence

A Time of Great Consequence

The 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks offers Americans an opportunity to remember the victims of that horrific day and reflect on the courage and bravery of the first responders who tirelessly worked to save lives in New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The attacks galvanized the country and resulted in unprecedented unity among the American people.

HSM-60 “Jaguars” Save Two Lives in Four Days

As many Navy missions have a degree of inherent danger, Navy first responders and medical personnel are trained to quickly provide life-saving medical assistance to Navy and Marine Corps personnel in case of an emergency. Earlier this year, four Sailors assigned to the “Jaguars” of Helicopter Maritime Strike (HSM) Squadron 60 recently used those same skills to jump into action to provide life-saving aid to two civilians while off duty — just four days apart.

Hair to Serve

Due to Sailor feedback and recommendations, the Navy updated the following terms, phrases and definitions in Navy grooming and appearance policies. The Navy deleted the terms: faddish, good taste, eccentric/eccentricities, complement the individual, complement the skin tone, smartness, conspicuous/inconspicuous, and outrageous. New and revised terms were also included in the regulations: professional appearance, complementary appearance, professional military appearance, and uniform distraction. These changes follow the Navy’s efforts to update grooming standards for the 21st century Sailor. Previous changes to NAVPERS 15665I allowed room for Sailors with varied hair textures to stay within regulations.

The Character of a Man: The Woman that Showed me the Importance of Love for Country

As my family celebrates 41 years here in America, I feel a renewed sense of honor to wear this uniform and a renewed sense of pride to be an American. I feel a sisterhood with my grandmother that crosses generations, countries and causes.
