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 careers of 21st Century Sailors April 30 - May 4 in Korea and Guam.

"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.

The team is composed of representatives from the NPC enlisted distribution division, enlisted community management division and career management department. They will conduct all-hands briefs on board Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Korea April 30, Commander Fleet Activities Chinhae May 1, Naval Base Guam May 3, and Anderson Air Force Base and the submarine tender USS Emory S. Land (AS-39) May 4.

All Sailors, families, career counselors and command leadership teams are encouraged to attend. Sailors should contact their command career counselor for local briefing times and locations.

The Navy will conduct additional fleet engagement visits to Florida, Italy and San Diego in the coming months. Dates will be released as they become available.
