Welcome to Navy Live blog coverage of Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert‘s Worldwide All-Hands Call.
As the Navy reaches 238 years, and the dynamics of our geopolitical and economic landscapes change around the globe. What changes do you feel are important for the Navy to adapt to in order to meet these strategic challenges?

Hello . I wanted to know if the active duty military will be sent home if the government shutdown continues for too long ? Thank you .
Future Sailor Dukes , SA .
Will the Navy be able to respond as needed despite the government shutdown to protect out country in case of a natural disaster like Katrina hurricane and what have you done to prepare yourself for that?
behind your back, fascist stalker gangs are openly poisoning people and
subverting the Democracy that you are supposed to protect. It reminds
me of a comment of a member of the German Army when they found out about
the concentration camps. He basically said at first they did not
believe it and thought it was propaganda and then said it all happened
behind the regular Army’s back. Of course, today we all know these
crimes are being committed , we all know the country is effectively
being taken over by what is effectively an army in civilian clothes
wielding chemical weapons. Seems to me there should be a role for the
folks in uniforms to counteract that. Could there be?
Good Morning Sir,
First off I would like to thank you taking the time in reading and responding to our questions.
My question is in regards to the active duty personnel who are coming off Limited Duty Status.
I cam currently forward deployed at Yokosuka Japan and have served here for a little over three years on the USS Blue Ridge LCC 19. With plans on staying aboard for at least another two years, I became ill with a bone infection in the lower back area. Shortly after my I was diagnosed, I was put on medical hold and later Limited Duty.
At the time I was put on LIMDU I lost my orders and plans with staying aboard the USS Blue Ridge. When I was declared Fit for Duty, I was up for orders with a “Needs of the Navy” status. Despite serving my overseas obligation, I had no say or choice in where I can receive orders. This was especially difficult and stressful for my wife and son who are accompanying me here in Japan.
My question is, are there any plans on changing LIMDU policies to help sailors and their family with an easier transition off of Limited Duty?
Thank you again for you time.

Good Afternoon CNO/MCPON,
On behalf of PCU Gerald R. Ford (CVN78) Weapons Department, we would like to thank you for taking the time to address our questions and concerns.
First Question…With the shrinking budget and talked about reduction in operational Carriers; do you foresee an increase in deployment length past the normal 6-8 months? Is there a plan being evaluated to cover the gap?
Second question… With the expected commissioning of PCU Gerald. R. FORD in the upcoming years, and the reduced manning that is being implemented into the future ships of our FLEET; do you foresee an issue in regards to manning being set lower than what ships actually need?
Third Question… Do you foresee programs such as PTS, ERB coming back at some point in the future? or is Career Way Point is here to stay?
Fourth Question…What are the future plans for the Navy to minimize using Active duty sailors, and increase the use of Reservists for IA tours?
Once again Sir, we sincerely appreciate the feedback.
PCU Gerald R. Ford (CVN78)
Is it possible to have the BAH re-evaluated for certain areas? I will be transferring to Lemoore, CA from Jacksonville, FL soon and my BAH will decrease even though the housing in the Lemoore/Hanford area is more expensive than Jacksonville. Thank you for your time.
If we are I a tight budget and people are being furloughed right and left, why is the Navy sending a boat to FL and then deploying the crew back to VA and then sending the boat and crew back to FL and then 6 weeks later sending the boat and crew back to VA for a yard period that will wind up costing the military even more money, instead of putting it in the yards in FL which would potentially save the government close to 1.6 million?
CNO & MCPON,
Sir I’m a sailor stationed in Japan. On 6 Sept 2013 The Japanese government said that it has no issue with the U.S. military allowing same-sex spouses to accompany service members or civilian workers stationed here. A Japan Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman said the definition of who qualifies as a spouse under SOFA is up to the U.S. government. I am getting married in JAN 2014, so the answer to these questions will prove beneficial to me.
Question 1- Since the decision is up to the U.S Government, why is it that they didn’t see this issue coming and fix it along with providing full benefits to same sex couples?
Question 2- Does DOD know when a new NAVADMIN will be issued saying that same-sex spouses are allowed to accompany sailors in Japan?
Thank you in advance sir for answering my questions, this is very important to both my future husband and i. Thank you also for your continuing efforts to make all equal under the law.

No SA as the military stay a ready force we will never go home will always get paid maybe delay but we will receive it.
SELRES Sailors are currently not able to perform basic drills or AT/ADT/ADSW orders outside of excepted activities. How long can this be expected to go on? I am surprised to see that even basic drills are not currently authorized. Pay would be delayed, but training is being affected. Shouldn’t Active-Reserve Integration rules apply?
Lt ling cg 69. With government shutdown, is the navy able to still support contracts to rotator services to over seas bases for scheduled charters. Ie Djibouti gtmo sigonella etc
What is the Navy doing to prepare for the effects of climate change and what national security impacts are we expecting?

Will there be any changes to the female hair regulations in the near future? The regulations have not been updated in a very long time and are very vague on the required appearance of female sailors.
How is the government shut down affecting the sailors getting orders to transfer?
if the shutdown continues I heard the pay our military act does not cover any of our incentive pay I.e. sub pay and sea pay is this true and do you see back pay for that?
Yes , ok ..very gut ..Happy Birthday!.
How is the shutdown going to affect pcs moves and pending retirements?
It is to my understanding that the Navy is not recruiting new sailors as actively as they have in the past. Do you see Naval recruiting picking back up anytime soon?
CNO & MCPON,
I’ve noticed that many of the recruiters I have spoken with aren’t familiar with the RE3-J reenlistment code and the details of MILSPERSMAN 1910-134 Section 9A Dated 23 March, 2013. Would it behoove a a prior recruit who was separated under these conditions to submit a request for a waiver now or to wait until recruiting picks back up or until I have a degree and can submit an application for OCS?
I would greatly appreciate any and all advice you could afford me on this topic, thank you very much for all that you do and for taking the time to answer our questions.
Very Respectfully (and hoping to one day see you on the fleet!) ,
Ramstein AFB, Germany

As far as the fourth question, a very large part of IAs are already being done by reservists. That was not the original role of the reservist. The original role of a reservist was to fill an active duty role when active duty were called to war. Somewhere along the line that turned into reserve sailors just going straight to afghanistan and Iraq. Right now due to the shut down reservists are not being allowed to train at all. and even when they are allowed to train they are getting paid to train two days a month. You would rather send someone who trains for two days a month to war, than to send someone who trains every single day? that doesn’t make sense…but that is exactly what has been done. And reservists have been performing extremely well. but the minute something goes wrong, it’s easy to fall back on the standby “oh, well they didn’t know better, they are just reservists.” And by the way, the military has to let you deploy, it’s part of your job. many reservists lose their civilian job when they are activated. Imagine trying to find a new job every time you get activated. What does that kind of uncertainty do to your family?
