WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Department of the Navy (DoN) has launched a dedicated website to serve as an additional resource for the 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative announced by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus in March.
The new website, located at www.21stcentury.navy.mil, features frequently asked questions, articles, blogs, and videos to update Sailors, Marines and their families on important policies and programs, which impact today's force.
The 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative consolidates a set of objectives and policies, new and existing, to maximize Sailor and Marine personal readiness. The programs are divided into five areas: readiness, safety, physical fitness, inclusion, and continuum of service.
"The Department of the Navy leadership wanted to take all of our existing personnel support programs, those in development and some new initiatives, and bring them together under the one umbrella of 21st Century Sailor and Marine in order to ensure every Sailor, Marine and their families have the tools they need to ensure they exceed and excel in the coming decade. This website is a one-stop shop for information about these programs," said Juan M. Garcia, assistant Secretary of the Navy (Manpower and Reserve Affairs).
The 21st Century Sailor and Marine Initiative consolidates a set of objectives and policies, new and existing, to maximize Sailor and Marine personal readiness, build resiliency and hone the most combat-effective force in the history of the Department of the Navy.
