MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Navy Personnel Command's (NPC) fleet engagement team is scheduled to meet with Sailors, families and leadership to discuss programs and initiatives affecting the career of 21st Century Sailors July 24-26 in San Diego.

"The visit is intended to help Sailors and command leadership understand current manpower issues and programs, as well as promote the professional and personal development of our Sailors," said Capt. Steven Holmes, director, community management branch, Bureau of Naval Personnel.

The briefs will provide background on Navy force shaping initiatives and upcoming command and Sailor actions. In a leadership-only session following the all-hands briefs, the team will discuss efforts to address future manning issues in more detail.
