1. CAREER REENLISTMENT OBJECTIVES (CREO)
Please review the attached NAVADMIN 263/08 as it contains the latest CREO categories. This is a great tool that should be used to help our Sailor’s make informed career decisions.

5. RHUMB LINES “NAVY IN CURRENT CONFLICTS: IRAQ”
With more than 6,400 U. S. Navy personnel serving on the ground in Iraq, 2,700 of whom are Individual Augmentees, it is important that we understand how we are carrying out the maritime strategy in that region. Please review the attached “Rhumb Lines” and get a glimpse into operations.


6. DEFENSE ENROLLMENT ELIGIBILITY REPORTING SYSTEM (DEERS)

Not updating DEERS could cost you. Navy Personnel Command’s Customer Service Center is calling dual-military couples to inform them that their marital status has not been updated in Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS), which could cost them dearly. For more information please review the attached info sheet on DEERS.

7. MOTORCYCLE SAFETY TIPS
