Congratulations on your orders to Commander, Carrier Strike Group 7. The staff is comprised of approximately 85 Officers and Sailors embarked aboard the Flag Ship USS RONALD REAGAN (CVN 76). As the Senior Enlisted Leader, please allow me to assist you in ensuring a successful transition to your new home in San Diego, California.
If you've received your orders, it is our focus to ensure your sponsor is assigned and contacts you in person within 24 hours. If this hasn't happened I want you to call me at (619) 545-8222, or send me an e-mail at email@example.com. Additionally, you'll soon receive a welcome aboard package, and letter from the Commander. As your Senior Enlisted Leader, my conviction is to make certain that new shipmates and their families are well taken care of, and made to feel a part the Carrier Strike Group 7 family from the very beginning. Proactive engagement by your sponsor and our ombudsman can solve many issues and concerns before you arrive aboard, paving the way for a smooth transition.
Once you report in, we will ensure you receive effective indoctrination, assignment of a mentor, and the opportunity to immediately apply your specific skill sets to the RONALD REAGAN Strike Group team. Everyone will have at least one mentor assigned to them - a person who is actively engaged in monitoring your professional and personal development and who can advise you, not just on rate specific choices, but on your entire career.
Again congratulations. In the event the Staff is out of homeport when you arrive, please check-in with the Transient Personnel Unit (TPU) San Diego, located at 32nd Street Naval Station. For assistance upon arrival by commercial airlines, you are encouraged to check in at the USO located in Terminal 2 at the San Diego Airport.
Welcome aboard! We can't wait to have you as a member of our team.
