First and foremost, it is with a heavy heart that I acknowledge the passing of another great Mustang. For those of you not aware, Commander John Regelbrugge III, lost his life in the Snohomish County landslide that occurred in Washington State on March 25th. His body was recovered days later by family members, but at last word the body of his wife, Kris, is still missing. They are survived by their 5 children; 3 sons and 2 daughters.

Sustainability Update: 888 billets were successfully loaded into the Total Force Manpower Management System by Navy Manpower Analysis Center last week. These billet changes will be phased, beginning with FY15 (1 Oct 2014). The remaining billets not included in the initial load will be adjudicated and effected via Billet Change Requests.
We will be in DC this week to update CNP (VADM Moran) on our Sustainability Initiative. This will be our first brief to him since he took the helm. We are making real progress, but we still have much more work to do.
Best of luck to all Lieutenants “In Zone” for Lieutenant Commander!
