“From the Desk of the BUMED FORCE MASTER CHIEF”

and Director of the Hospital Corps

11 August 2008

1. FY-10 ENLISTED SELECTION BOARDS

The FY-10 E8/E9 Enlisted Selection Boards for Navy Reserve personnel will convene on 2 Mar 09. The FY-10 E9 and E8 Selection Boards for Active Duty personnel will convene 30 Mar 09 and 20 Apr 09 respectively. For more information please review the attached NAVADMIN 214/08.

2. MOTORCYCLE SAFETY

     The popularity of motorcycles is rising. Some ride motorcycles because of the increases in the price of gasoline. Some ride because they enjoy a sense of freedom. Some ride because they are under the mistaken impression that motorcycles, sport bikes in particular, are easy to operate and maneuver.  Whatever the motivation, if you choose to ride a motorcycle, you must realize that there is little protection between you and what you hit.

Sport Bike accidents are rising and our men and women are dying on our highways because in many cases they are being careless or have not been properly trained. Since October we have lost 21 Sailors in motorcycle accidents. In all of last year we lost 18 Sailors. We have safety courses and attendance is mandatory, but I need you to engage your Sailors now. It is imperative that you stress the importance to all riders to take a motorcycle safety course. Stay on them and consistently remind them of safe practices, situational awareness and caution on the roads.

3. CHIEF FITNESS REPORT

The Chief Fitness Report is the final step in MCPON Campa’s initiative to integrate the CPO Guiding Principles as performance expectations across the fleet. For more information on this please review the attached RHUMB LINES.

4. RIGHT TO VOTE

The Presidential Election is fast approaching. It is our duty as leaders to ensure that every Sailor and their family members, particularly those deployed overseas our made aware of the process necessary to cast a ballot so their voices can be heard. For more information please review the attached NAVADMIN 215/08.
