Emergency Preparedness and Response: Extreme Heat http://www.bt.cdc.gov/disasters/extremeheat/faq.asp

These self-help measures are not a substitute for medical care but may help you recognize and respond promptly to warning signs of trouble. Your best defense against heat-related illness is prevention. Staying cool and making simple changes in your fluid intake, activities, and clothing during hot weather can help you remain safe and healthy.

Happy 4th!

On this 4th of July, let us remember with gratitude those who have defended and continue to defend our nation; the brave men and women who wear the cloth of our nation and protect our nation’s highest ideals and freedoms, to include religious freedom for all.

And let us remember the eloquent opening words of our Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Welcome to Navy Forces Online Public Sites

Confidentiality with Chaplains: Sailors hold the Key

In a recent poll on Navy Personnel Command's website, 63 percent of 5,049 respondents did not believe that what they say to a chaplain is confidential, and 65 percent of 2,895 respondents believe that Navy chaplains are required to report certain matters to the command.

Per Navy policy, service members and families have the right and privilege to confidential communication with a Navy chaplain; Chaplains have the obligation and responsibility to protect and guard the confidential communications disclosed to them; and commanders honor and support the unique, confidential relationship between an individual and a chaplain.

Chaplains cannot be compelled by the command, medical professionals or others to disclose what a service member or family member shares in confidence.

"What you say to us stays between us, unless you decide differently- You hold the key"
