Boots on Ground/Deck Program

The Boots on Ground/Deck Program is coordinated by NAVAIR 6.0, Assistant Commander, Logistics and Industrial Operations. Boots events are executed for ashore (Boots on Ground) and afloat (Boots on Deck) commands. The purpose of these events is twofold. It enables NAE leadership to interact directly with a command and allows its assigned personnel to observe first hand the challenges and successes within that command. It is not an inspection, but a fact gathering event intended to benefit the host command(s).
