Quotes

...Matt Pickering, Navy chaplain. "Physical activity, taking care of our bodies, taking care of our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual selves is really important, and that was a big part of it."
"For some time now, these men and women have met the significant demand for our forces without waver. As the need for our presence continues, Hardship Duty Pay - Tempo (HDP-T) is an important effort to further compensate our Sailors and Marines for their willingness to take on extended deployments and for the frontline role they continue to play in keeping our nation, and our world, safe."
"Quite simply, this is meant to compensate sailors and marines for extended deployments. The Bataan Ready Group went over 221 days yesterday and the Bush Strike Group will go over 221 days next week. This is something the Secretary of the Navy and the CNO (Chief Naval Officer) worked very hard for on behalf of sailors and families,” said Cmdr. Christopher Servello, spokesman for Navy personnel."
"ARG/MEU-Ex is successful if we safely accomplish all of our assigned missions within a certain amount of time," he said. "The exercise is also successful if ARG personnel and MEU personnel achieve interoperability during the missions so we can seamlessly perform our duties while deployed in theater."
