The commander of Navy Installations Command (CNIC) addressed service members and civilians during an all-hands call aboard Naval Base Guam Aug. 14.
Vice Adm. William D. French focused on four tenants outlined by Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert, the chief of naval operations, during his brief. Specifically, continued dominance of the seas, cyber technology and security, the Navy’s continued relationship with the Marine Corps and lastly the rebalance to the Pacific.
French said the military’s support in Guam for homeported and visiting submarines as well as surface ships, the Marine buildup and the collaboration with the Air Force directly effects military operations spanning the western Pacific.
He also spoke about changes to military pay charts, uniform changes, water safety and new opportunities for Sailors wanting to serve at sea and Sailor resiliency, namely the quality of life for Sailors necessary to remain healthy and mission capable.
