Naval District Washington (NDW) launched the Commandant’s Corner, a monthly video blog by NDW Commandant, Rear Adm. Markham K. Rich, dedicated at providing the latest information impacting NDW personnel, Jan. 10.

The Commandants Corner will be covering various topics and different issues with three focus areas of readiness, stewardship, and community. The blog will be posted online monthly on a variety of online platforms to ensure personnel throughout the region can view it.

Rich kicked off his video blog with a focus on communication and how it’s an important tool to gather together.

“Communication brings us together, it synchronizes and enables unity of effort; it lets us know when we have an opportunity or a threat, and enables us to have rational discussions,” said Rich.

Rich is looking for opportunities to improve communications while encouraging NDW personnel to participate, submit questions and topics that they would like for him to discuss.
