Naval History and Heritage Command Seminars
The Naval History and Heritage Command hosts a series seminars for which historians select basic readings that will cover major trends, wars, battles, policies, and technologies across the chronological span of the U.S. Navy's history and facilitate discussion on the readings and their implications. Each one-hour seminar starts at noon in the National Museum of the United States Navy's Museum Education Center, Building 76, Washington Navy Yard.
The topics for each seminar are listed below:
May 23 - War of 1812 - What was the strategic value of the U.S. Navy during the War of 1812?
June 20 - Navy Leadership - How did the personalities of its leaders affect the Navy's performance in World War II and the Cold War?
Reminder: Navy civilian employees must verify MyBiz information by May 1
The Department of the Navy (DON) will begin the process of converting paper-based personnel records, which contain records that cover an employee’s work history, to electronic files. This is a part of the DON’s effort to implement eOPFs across the enterprise. Converting to eOPFs will not only maximize available technology, it will also enable immediate 24/7 access for employees, hiring managers and human resource professionals to critical personnel documents online through a secure internet connection.
Employees must ensure they have entered their correct email address into their DCPDS records via MyBiz prior to May 1. This must be done on a secure DON network (NMCI). For more information please visit www.public.navy.mil/donhr /Documents/ eOPF%20march%202012.pdf
