RMKS/1.  There has been no more vivid or illustrative time than now to

Marines, Sailors, and civil servants have the opportunity to thrive and 
succeed in service to our nation.  The health of our workforce and material 
condition our assets relies on each individual investing every effort to make 
well-informed and deliberate risk decisions, both on- and off-duty.  We must 
work together to identify root causes of non-combat fatalities, injuries, 
mishaps and near misses, create lasting solutions to avoid reoccurrence, and

effort to learn from them and one another to improve the safety and health of 
our Navy-Marine Corps Team.
