Nearly 45,000 Sailors Receive Targeted Payment for Navy Working Uniforms

By NUR - Last updated: Saturday, December 4, 2010

WASHINGTON (NNS) — More than 44,000 Sailors received a one-time, targeted clothing replacement allowance (CRA) Nov. 15, to ensure they are fully compensated for their Navy Working Uniforms (NWU)..

Earlier this year, the Navy determined Sailors who entered recruit training between Oct. 1, 2007 and April 26, 2009, were either not issued a full set of NWUs or were not provided adequate clothing allowances for their purchase. Once these Sailors were identified and the best method of ensuring proper compensation was determined, Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson, announced the plan to issue the one-time payments recently received. “With these payments, the Navy has ensured Sailors are fully and equally compensated for their uniforms,” said Ferguson.

“These affected Sailors now have the means to maintain their professional appearance as the Fleet prepares to fully transition to the Navy Working Uniform.”

Dec. 31, 2010, is the fleet-wide mandatory wear date of the NWU and is the deadline for the majority of Sailors to have a full complement in their seabags. For those Sailors receiving the targeted payment, they will not be required to have a full complement until Sept. 30, 2011. Read the rest of this entry »

New Navy Type II and Type III Navy Working Uniform

By NUR - Last updated: Thursday, August 12, 2010

WASHINGTON (NNS) — Two new Navy Working Uniforms (NWU) will hit the fleet in fiscal year 2011.

The first, NWU Type II, a desert digital camouflage uniform of four colors with the anchor, Constitution and eagle (ACE) logo embedded in the print, will be worn by special warfare operators and Sailors who support them during deployment and deployment training exercises.

“The desert camouflage uniform is not going away,” said Capt. Vince Drouillard, branch head within Navy’s personnel, plans and policy division. “Sailors, other than Navy special warfare operators and supporting Sailors, will continue to wear the current tricolor desert camouflage utility uniform in desert environments when issued by authorizing commands.”

The second, NWU Type III, is a woodland digital camouflage uniform which also has four colors and the ACE logo embedded in the print. It will be the standard camouflage uniform worn in non-desert environments and stateside.

Both uniforms, announced in NAVADMIN 374/09, are organizational clothing provided to Sailors by commands authorized to issue them.

The unisex uniforms will begin conformance testing to validate design, fit and wear later in fiscal year 2010. Fleet implementation is expected to begin in late 2011 with deploying combat and direct command support commands and units receiving priority in the distribution process.

Both new uniforms have an authorized matching pattern Gortex parka with a removable fleece liner. Sailors can get complete information on the new NWU Type II and Type III uniforms in NAVADMIN 374/09 available at www.npc.navy.mil.

Once the wear test concludes in August, a decision will be made on whether this will be come an official new navy uniform.

Even more important than the “official wear testing” is our sailors reaction to this new uniform. Leave your comments and let me know how you like the throwback khakis.

Random Webmaster Thoughts

By NUR - Last updated: Monday, June 21, 2010

Three years ago when all this discussion of “recreating the Navy Uniform” started I thought one of the objectives was to reduce the seabag. Is anyone but me missing something here? Since I work for a NECC command I have three, yes THREE sets of cammie uniforms. Additionally, I’m now required to buy a set of Dress Khakies.

What uniform have I given up, or removed from my seabag, in exchange for these two additional uniforms? Oh yes, my tropical whites. Remember the white shorts with socks pulled all the way up? They have finally gone the way of the dinosaur.

Thanks guys…

Permanent Makeup FAQ’s

By NUR - Last updated: Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Q: What is Permanent Makeup?
A: Permanent Makeup is a cosmetic procedure where extremely tiny amounts of natural pigments are inserted into the dermal layer of the skin. This is an increasingly popular cosmetic option for females.

Q: Why would a young female sailor want Permanent Makeup?
A:  Permanent makeup may be desired by females who don’t want to spend a lot of time applying makeup every day. This procedure is especially attractive to females who have light, sparse or half eyebrows or sparse eye lashes or no eye lashes, are physically active, or who have oily skin that sheds makeup easily.  Females that possess poorly defined or descending lips may also desire this procedure.
