At any given moment thousands of Navy Reservists are providing operational capabilities and strategic depth to combatant commander requirements around the world.
Recently, Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command, RADM Luscher and Command Master Chief Wentzel visited more than 200 of those deploying - and returning - Sailors and the outstanding staff at ECRC - Expeditionary Combat Readiness Center.
ECRC's mission is to provide oversight of the processing, equipping, training, deployment, in-theater support and re-deployment of Sailors in non-traditional, non-naval expeditionary missions in support of Overseas Contingency Operations.
From the moment a Sailor departs from home, ECRC is hard at work to support Sailors and their families during their tour of duty.

Some travelers have been receiving DTS rejection notices for FY-19 travel. Yesterday, the new financial accounting system SABRS took control from DTS and it caused a "funds availability" disconnect.

However, personnel without a GTCC who require a travel advance should not travel until the current issue is corrected.

From the Secretary of the Navy,
To our Sailors, civilians, families and friends, for 243 years the Navy has been a global force, forged from the sea, united in a common purpose, ready to fight, respond, and defend wherever there is need.
Because of your hard work and dedication, the foundation for restoring readiness and increasing lethality has been set. But as we enter our 244th year of service, we must now build on that foundation. I need you to continually think of how to improve the delivery of the Navy the Nation needs with a committed sense of urgency.
We are accountable for how and where we invest our time and our resources, and we must understand the readiness and lethality we gain from those investments. To that end, we must be disciplined in our focus on our people, capabilities, and processes.
We have developed plans informed by the National Defense Strategy, which recognizes that our primary role is warfighting. Now each of us must align our efforts to in order to accomplish these plans. Ask yourselves and each other, how can we accomplish our mission better, faster, and cheaper.
With your help, I have no doubt we will leverage every resource, leading practice, and efficiency we can find with the professionalism, integrity and accountability the American people expect.
My wife Polly and I are forever grateful for all that you, your families, and your loved ones do for our Nation. Happy Birthday Shipmates God bless you and God bless the United States Navy.
-The Honorable Richard V. Spencer, Secretary of the Navy.
