CHAPTER 1 – UNIT ORGANIZATION

SECTION 1 – STAFF CHAIN OF COMMAND 101. Purpose. The purpose of this chapter is to define the Kentucky Division chain of command and provide job descriptions for all assigned billets in the command. 102. Chain of Command. The Kentucky Division chain of command runs much like the chain of command in a typical U.S. Navy command. The Commanding Officer is in charge and it goes down from there. Each staff member, officer and enlisted, is responsible for the execution of their primary duty. Additionally, each staff member must take the initiative and help wherever they see the need. This is an extension of the team concept that the NSCC is all about. When cadets see staff members working together to accomplish a goal, it will motivate them to do the same. 103.

The header of each quarterdeck page along with the watch time and personnel standing the watch shall be filled out as per the example. c. Corrections. All corrections in the log shall be made by neatly one lining and initialing the incorrect information or line and placing the correcting parties initials above it. The correct information then will be written on the next line or next to the incorrect information as applicable. d. Late Entries. When a late entry is to be made the actual time the entry is being written shall be placed in the left column in chronological order, followed by the words “Late Entry:”. Immediately following the colon will be the time the late entry was supposed to be written and then the entry itself. e. End of Day (1) At 2359 each day the log will be closed out with a diagonal line. Above the line will be written “NO FURTHER ENTRIES THIS PAGE” and the party closing the log will sign below. (2) On the next page the header and watch information will be re-filled out. The first entry will be at 0000 and read “START OF NEW DAY”. f. Watch Inspections.

Historical Quarterdeck Log Files. At the end of each drill quarterdeck logs will be reviewed by the SWO (typically the OPSO) and maintained for 3 years in the quarterdeck log archive file typically located in the Operations Office. 312. Quarterdeck Relief Procedures. Thirty minutes prior to the scheduled change of watch, the Messenger of the Watch will wake the relief. The relief will be on station 5 minutes before the scheduled change of watch time. These extra 5 minutes allow the watch to pass on any additional information or special instructions to the relief. At the scheduled shift change time, the POOW and MOOW will follow proper relief procedures, exchange duty belts and log the change of watch. 313. Special Situations. The USNSCC is a coed training program, and there may be times in which a male and female are assigned quarterdeck together. Situations like this are special, and in many cases can be delicate. Because of this, the following guidelines for special situations have been developed. a. Males and females are assigned quarterdeck watch, they will be assigned only at times when all personnel are asleep, and both squad bays can be safely monitored after lights out. b. When a male and female are assigned quarterdeck watch, they will rotate rounds, so each can check the security of their berthing area. 314.

SECTION 5 – GENERAL ADMINSTRATION 412. Purpose. This section will give a brief description of administrative procedures. 413.

Enrollment Fees

a. Fees. The NSCC National Board of Directors establishes the annual enrollment fee for all NSCC personnel. Enrollment fees include both administrative and insurance fees. Any overage in fees will be considered a "donation" to the NSCC program and will not be held for future use. Any shortage in fees will result in registration being held in abeyance. NO ID card will be issued until the correct fees are received by NHQ. Initial enrollment fees for Kentucky Division shall be set by the Commanding Officer via the unit's Fiscal Officer. b. Refund/Transfer. Enrollment fees paid by individuals who subsequently drop from the program are non-refundable, or transferable to another applicant. NLCC cadets that transfer to the NSCC pay no additional fee. They will receive an ID card that covers any remaining time on the NLCC ID card. c. Replacement Fee. A $5.00 fee will be assessed for each lost, stolen or mutilated ID card replaced by NHQ. d. Computation for High School Seniors. Partial year enrollments are acceptable only for highly motivated cadets who are in their senior year of high school. The partial registration fee is a prorated administrative fee ($4.00) a month, multiplied by the number of month's extension, (up to 6 months). Over 6 months, the FULL enrollment fee is required. e. Overdraft Checks. A $30 fee will be assessed for a returned unit check or personal check. If the check is returned for insufficient funds the person(s) covered will be disenrolled. If the check is in conjunction with a request for training orders, NO orders will be issued until the check is clear. It is the responsibility of the unit commanding officer to inform the cadet and the parent/guardian they will not be able to attend training until the issue is resolved. The old check will be returned and the unit or party responsible for the personal check will be expected to remit the appropriate fees plus $30. 414. Safeguarding Privileged/Sensitive Information. Each unit should take any all precautions within the confines of their drill locations to safeguard privileged/sensitive information maintained in officer and cadet service jackets and local files. Destruction of service jackets and local files, when necessary, should be done by shredding or burning.

KYDIVINST 3120.1 01 FEB 14 415. What a Commanding Officer Must Sign. The unit commanding officer, Officer in Charge, or person "acting" in either position must personally sign documents that: a. Establish unit policy. b. Changes to the unit's mission and are addressed to a higher authority. c. Unit disciplinary actions. d. NSCTNG 001 and 002 Request for Training Authority. e. NSCTNG 003 and 004 Local Training Authority. f. NSCTNG 005 and 006 National Training Authority. 416. Delegating Signature Authority. The commanding officer may delegate signature authority to subordinates and may authorize those subordinates to delegate signature authority further. This is done in writing using titles rather than names (Executive Officer or Admin Officer). Include a brief outline of the types of documents involved. As a general rule, authorized subordinates may sign correspondence that falls within their area of responsibility unless "good judgment" calls for the document to be signed by the commanding officer. 417. Use of Facsimile Stamps. The commanding officer may authorize others to use stamps that duplicate his or her signature where the personal signing of correspondence causes hardship or is impractical. If you are authorized to use a facsimile stamp of someone else's signature, pen your initials next to each signature you stamp to authenticate the facsimile. Safeguard such stamps from unauthorized use.

501. Responsibility. It is the responsibility of all personnel to maintain unit discipline in a manner which creates unit cohesion, efficiency in training, and enhances morale. Certain individuals have a specific responsibility to maintain discipline within the unit. a. The commanding officer is charged with the overall conduct and mission accomplishment of the unit. He/she is the final authority with which unit discipline rests. His/her disciplinary actions are carried out either through Non-Judicial Punishment (NJP) or in accordance and consultation with higher authority. b. The executive officer is the chief advisor and assistant to the Commanding Officer with regards to unit discipline. He/she may informally advise the CO on disciplinary issues or formally recommend actions through Executive Officer’s Inquiry (XOI). c. The operations officer/assistant operations officer are charged with the discipline of the largest department within the unit and the core group of cadets. He/she shall advise the chain of command on disciplinary issues either informally or formally through the use of a Disciplinary Review Board (DRB). d. Division officers/assistant division officers are directly responsible for the good order and discipline of those personnel assigned to them. They may correct behavior either through informal counseling (verbal), formal counseling (written), assignment of Extra Military Instruction (EMI), or by referring more serious matters to the chain of command and initiating the disciplinary process with a DRB through the use of a report chit. e. The Chief Master at Arms (CMAA) is the chief advisor to the entire chain of command on the good order and discipline of the unit. He/she shall create and maintain a system of record keeping of all disciplinary infractions, serve as a principle member of the DRB, advise department heads, the CO and XO on disciplinary matters, and follow up and ensure compliance with all corrective actions and EMI issued to an offender.

KYDIVINST 3120.1 01 FEB 14 and sea cadet corps disciplinary regulations and keep all concerned parties informed of disciplinary issues. f. Petty officers, LPOs, and ALPOs are directly responsible for the good order and discipline of all junior personnel and those assigned to them. They may give informal counseling (verbal) and instruction to cadets to correct disciplinary issues. They MAY NOT however issue corrective actions, such as EMI, or formal counseling to a cadet. They may however initiate the counseling or report chit process with concurrence from the appropriate division officer and make recommendations to the chain of command. 502.

Policy

a. Informal Counseling. Informal Counseling is counseling given to a cadet to correct a minor infraction. The purpose of this type of counseling is to correct a deficiency, provide training, and advise a cadet of a negative trend or pattern in behavior. This type of counseling must be attempted first for all minor infractions. It may be performed by any member of the chain of command. The key concern is both correcting infractions on the spot as they occur, and ensuring correction is done in private unless the entire unit stands to benefit from the training. It is not to be used to humiliate or make an example of someone. b. Formal Counseling. Formal Counseling is given for more sever infractions that require EMI assignment, or documentation which may be needed to affect a more stringent punishment in the future. Informal Counseling must be done in private by the appropriate division officer. When dealing with a member of the opposite sex, or when gender specific issues are concerned it is mandatory that an officer of the opposite sex be present for the counseling. (1) Formal Counseling is issued through the means of a standardized counseling chit. The chit shall provide information on the cadet being counseled, the infraction, the cadet’s comments towards the counseling, and any corrective measures assigned. It shall be signed by the cadet being counseled, the division officer performing the counseling and the CMAA. Assignment of EMI requires the addition use of an EMI assignment form. A copy may be given to the cadet and may be maintained by the division officer. A copy must be forwarded to the CMAA to be maintained in the cadet’s disciplinary record. c. Parental/Guardian Advisory Letter (PAL). When a steady pattern of misconduct is noted and documented by either the division officer or the CMAA a PAL should be sent to the parent or guardian of the cadet concerned. It shall be a formal letter on standard form by the division officer to the parent of the cadet outlining what the issue is, and what corrective measures have been attempted. It shall be given to the cadet to take home and have signed by parent/guardian and

KYDIVINST 3120.1 01 FEB 14 returned to the unit. The division officer may retain a copy and a copy must be forwarded to the CMAA for filing in the cadet's disciplinary record. This shall be used as a last resort when all other counseling methods have failed and it becomes apparent that further disciplinary action, such as a DRB, is likely. The parent may be forwarded copies of past counseling chits and provided an opportunity to speak to the division officer regarding the disciplinary issues. The release authority is the executive officer. The letter shall be screened by the administrative officer for proper formatting. d. Disciplinary Review Board. The DRB process is initiated for a steady pattern of misconduct or for more serious actions. It is initiated through the use of a report chit. All information shall be filled out by the division officer and forwarded to the operations officer for convening of the DRB. A DRB panel has the option to refer the case to XOI, assign EMI, perform counseling, or dismiss the case. Matters regarding infractions of “zero-tolerance” policies must be forwarded to XOI. e. Executive Officer Inquiry. An XOI is conducted upon recommendation from the DRB by the executive officer. It shall be an investigation performed by the XO in such a manner as seen fit by the XO. The XO has the option to refer back the DRB for final disposition with direction and recommendations or to forward to Captains Mast/NJP. The XO has the added authority to suspend a cadet for up to 3 drills. Suspension of a cadet must be accomplished through consultation with the parent or guardian by the executive officer and in concurrence with the commanding officer. f. Commanding Officer’s (Captain's) Mast. Commanding Officer's Mast shall be conducted by the commanding officer in such a manner that he sees fit. The commanding officer may refer the case back to any other lower level with recommendations and direction. He has the added authority to dismiss the cadet from the program. This shall be done in consultation with the parent/guardian. Full guidelines for Commanding Officer's Mast can be found in KYDIVINST 1620.1A. 503. Record Keeping. Record keeping is of the highest importance with regards to the disciplinary program. It is used to justify further disciplinary action, suspension of a cadet, or dismissal of a cadet. It can alleviate the unit of liability against accusations of prejudice and the like. Cadet Disciplinary records shall be created as needed by the CMAA. The CMAA is responsible to the XO for the maintenance of all records. a. Contents. Cadets Disciplinary Records shall contain all counseling chits, PALs, report chits, and EMI assignment forms and EMI follow ups. It shall be made available to the division officer upon request, to the DRB, XOI and CO as needed. It may also be reviewed by the parent with the division officer and/or CMAA.

Extra Military Instruction (EMI)

a. Definition. Extra military instruction is instruction in a phase of military duty in which an individual is deficient and is intended to correct that deficiency. EMI is an administrative measure authorized under NSCC Regulations as a necessary training device intended to improve efficiency of the unit and must, therefore, be intended as such. It must not be used as a substitute for punitive action appropriate under NSCC Regulations. Extra instruction assigned must be logically related to the deficiency to be corrected. b. Withholding of Privileges. Temporary withholding of privileges is authorized under NSCC Regulations as another administrative corrective measure that may be employed by superiors to correct infractions of unit/NSCC regulation or performance deficiencies in their subordinates when punitive action does not appear appropriate due to the minor nature of the infraction or deficiency. A privilege is a benefit, advantage, or favor, provided for the convenience or enjoyment of an individual. (1) Authority. Final authority to withhold a privilege, however temporary, must ultimately rest with the level of authority empowered to grant that privilege. Therefore, authority of officers and petty officers to withhold privileges is, in many cases, limited to recommendations via the chain of command to the appropriate authority. Officers and petty officers are authorized and expected to initiate such actions when considered appropriate to remedy minor infractions as necessary. (2) Implementation. Implementation of temporary withholding of privileges will be governed by specific procedures as prescribed by the cognizant authority empowered to grant that privilege. 505. Regulations. Cadets must abide by all unit and NSCC Regulations along with all applicable military regulations when aboard a military activity. In general regulations are of 3 categories: zero-tolerance, major, and minor. a. Zero-Tolerance Regulations. Zero-tolerance regulations are those which infractions of which will not be allowed within the unit. They are determined to be inherently detrimental to good order and discipline, uncorrectable, and open the unit to undue liability. They shall be documented on a counseling chit and forwarded through to CO’s mast for removal of the cadet from the program. They shall be explained to all cadets, officers, and parents upon enrollment in the program. The following regulations are determined to be zerotolerance:

Enclosure


KYDIVINST 3120.1 01 FEB 14

(1) Alcohol and Drug Use (2) Hazing (3) Racism (4) Sexual Harassment and misconduct (5) Physical abuse (6) Any other instance listed as a felony, misdemeanor, or listed in sea cadet corps regulations b. Major regulation infractions are those which do not meet the criteria of zero-tolerance regulations but are inherently detrimental to good order and discipline and must be corrected to avoid further issues. Examples of major infractions are: (1) Failure to obey orders or regulations (2) A steady pattern of misconduct (3) Misbehavior while on watch (4) A severe lack of core values (5) Lesser included offense of zero-tolerance regulations c. Minor infractions are those that are easily correctable by informal or formal counseling and EMI. These regulations do not necessarily detract from the overall mission of the unit but are not in line with the sea cadet corps and units’ mission and values. Some examples of these may include: (1) Lack of core values (2) Minor issues of misconduct (3) Failure to comply with responsibilities (4) Conduct issues (5) Lesser included offenses of major regulations d. Aside from zero-tolerance infractions which are specifically listed herein or in NSCC Regulations or other official directives, the determination of severity of an infraction shall be determined by the person witnessing the infraction or issuing corrective measures. A delicate balance must be struck between swift punishment and correction that breeds a desire to comply and excel.

CHAPTER 6 – SUPPLY SECTION 1 - DEPARTMENT ORGANIZATION 600. Supply Officer (SUPPO). The supply officer is responsible to the executive officer for the safe custody/accounting of all material which is the property of the unit, or which is on loan from the supporting military activity or other organization, company, governmental authority, or person. 601. Supply Petty Officer (SPO). The division shall assign one cadet to the supply office to act as the SPO. This assignment will be on a rotating basis changing every 6 months with the completion of semiannual inventory. The SPO will be under the direct supervision of the supply officer during their supply office duty hours. a. Selection of the SPO. When a need for an assistant or relief of an incumbent is needed, the supply officer shall inform the NSCC division officer as to the need. The division officer, in turn, will make recommendations as to whom the division will assign to the supply office. The division officer will ask for volunteers from their division. This assignment shall not be used as punishment for an infraction or EMI. b. SPO conflict with division activities. This assignment will in no way, take away from the cadets overall experiences in division activities. As this position is voluntary, and the cadet may request through the supply officer, to be relieved of SPO duties at anytime. c. Training of the SPO. The supply officer shall be tasked with training/supervising the SPO with regard to uniform issue, returns, exchanges, logging, receipt issue, financial transactions, inventory, and reconciliations. 602. Chain of Command. The supply officer shall be designated a department head position and therefore report directly to the Executive Officer for all matters pertaining to the division supply department. However, the supply officer shall use other appropriate members of the chain of command when referencing non-supply department issues, such as an indirect line to the Commanding Officer.

SECTION 2 - UNIFORMS 603. Uniform Stock. The supply department shall maintain an adequate supply of serviceable uniforms for issue to cadets. Uniforms and uniform items are subject to availability for issue based on availability from supply sources. The supply officer, acting through the Commanding Officer, shall liaise with the U.S. Navy uniform reclaim center in Great Lakes, local uniform reclaim centers, civilian military surplus dealers, and local charity/thrift stores within a one hundred fifty (150) mile radius of Kentucky Division to maintain a supply of usable uniforms for issue. a. Current Uniform Stock. Kentucky Division is currently utilizing the utility navy working uniform. This working uniform supply is no longer issued or replenished by the U.S. Navy and will soon become unavailable. It is imperative that cadets who no longer are attached to the division, or when uniforms no longer properly fit, return these uniforms to supply for reissue. When the utility uniform supply is exhausted, or is no longer a viable uniform, the NSCC/NLCC has issued regulations for units to wear the current Navy Working Uniform. The division is employing efforts of reclaim and recycling to avoid this change in uniforms, as it will add a cost to each cadet. Per the Commanding Officer’s directive, utility uniforms will be worn for locally arranged training, where such activities could damage the BDU or NWU uniforms. b. Primary Uniform Supply Source. The supply officer shall submit, through the chain of command, request for uniform and uniform items from the U.S. Navy’s uniform reclaim center located at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois. Alternate uniform supply sources follow in this chapter in Section 3. c. Available Uniform Sizes and Proper Fit As Related to Availability. Due to the U.S. Navy’s current body fat index, body mass index measures, and uniform issue calendars, uniforms over size 46 are no longer issued and former issue supplies are available until back stock is exhausted. Furthermore, uniforms that are small, or for use by NLCC cadets and smaller NSCC cadets are increasingly difficult to acquire. Parents may have to resort to searching for and purchasing uniform items from online sources, such as Ebay, Amazon and other online retailers, as well as brick and mortar facilities. Additionally, current U.S. Navy regulations promulgate that dress uniforms are not issued to recruits until the near end of current active duty recruit training, therefore the reclaim of dress uniforms are being greatly diminished. Conversely, the supply of uniforms for those cadets smaller than available uniforms, will require tailoring to maintain an appropriate fit. This service can be provided by local tailors and seamstresses. Those cadets with proper Cadet ID can

KYDIVINST 3120.1 01 FEB 14 utilize the Navy Exchange Uniform Center for alterations at the cadet's expense, if located near, or visiting one. If the exchange tailoring service is not desirable, then personal or commercial tailoring is acceptable. The supply officer is available to meet with cadets/parents on uniform fitting guidelines. 604. Accountability. The supply officer shall be 100% accountable for maintaining stock of the division or items on loan to the division. 605. Uniform and Material Inventory. The supply officer shall oversee complete accounting and stock inventory of the main uniform issue space and associated division property. Every year, the supply department will perform a complete inventory of all division property and audit against supply disbursements of the reporting period. An accounting report will be due to the Executive Officer no later than the second drill following completion of annual inventory. During annual inventory, the supply officer shall request through the chain of command, five temporary additional cadet assistants to aid the supply office in the inventory evolution. All division inventory shall be tracked using a bar coding system, and synchronized through QuickBooks, for 24 hour remote access by those entities authorized to review inventory and financial data of the division. 606. Material on Loan to the Division. The supply officer shall record the information regarding material on loan to the division as well as information regarding its custody. This will ensure that loaned property is well cared for and returned in the manner in which it was received. A loan log book shall be maintained recording the following information: a. Material and date received from. b. Type of material on loan. c. Appropriate use guidelines. d. Description noting the condition of the material. e. Photos of the material, if appropriate/warranted. f. Date the material is due back to owner. 607. Cadet uniforms/materials issue. Each incoming cadet shall be issued a sea bag containing uniforms needed for division participation to the extent of available uniforms at no cost. The division strives to maintain an adequate supply of serviceable uniforms but is limited to supply availability, funding availability, and uniform regulations. Therefore, not all uniforms or uniform items may be available to the

(1)

Enclosure


KYDIVINST 3120.1 01 FEB 14 cadet upon enrollment, and must be obtained from alternate sources at the cadet’s expense. a. Initial Issue. Upon enrollment, cadets will report to the supply locker where they will receive their initial uniform sea bag and associated uniform items. This issue will be recorded in the cadet’s file labeled “Supply Issue Log” kept on file in the supply office. Additionally, each cadet’s service jacket will have a bar coded label specific to that cadet/instructor/officer. Upon being issued or returning an item, the tem will be ‘scanned’ in/out of the system, thus creating a digital record within QuickBooks and an excel spreadsheet. When uniform items are unavailable, cadets will be given a list of alternate supply sources. Cadets are responsible for reporting to each drill with a complete sea bag of all required uniform items, as outlined in that months’ POM. b. Sea Bag Inspections. Random sea bag inspections may be ordered at the discretion of the executive officer to ensure that cadets are properly maintaining their uniform and complying with uniform requirements. Therefore, each cadet shall bring their entire uniform complement to each drill where the POM states that an inspection will be conducted. c. Replacement of Uniform Items. In order to control costs to the division, cadets requiring re-issue of missing, damaged, or lost uniform items will be at the cadet’s expense. When replacement uniform items are issued, an invoice will be sent home with the cadet, as well as emailed to the parent/guardian on record, and payment for such replacement items will be due at the next drill or may be paid online. Failure to remit payment for replacement items may result in suspension of reissue privileges until such payment is received by the supply office as determined by the executive officer. The supply office shall maintain a log book documenting transaction for replacement of uniform items, including financial transactions, outgoing invoices requesting payment for materials issues, and lists of materials outstanding or on loan to a cadet. d. Exchange of uniforms. Cadets who require an exchange uniforms due to age, deterioration, or having out grown their current complement will report to the supply office to receive an exchange of uniforms, at no cost, based on uniform availability. Uniforms will be exchanged on a one for one basis. The exchange process is not meant, and shall not be utilized, to replace missing or lost uniform items. Note that exact sizes may not be available and may require tailoring or alterations to ensure proper fit. Exchanges will be logged into each cadet’s uniform issue log sheet, and bar code system, respectively. e. Uniform care. Cadets are required to keep their uniforms in good repair and tailored at all times. The supply officer is

KYDIVINST 3120.1 01 FEB 14 available for advisement on uniform care inquiries for both parents and cadets.

f. Unavailable uniforms. When a uniform item is requested by the cadet or his/her division officer that is currently unavailable, the supply officer shall inform the appropriate member of the chain of command as to absence of the requested uniform and allow for a temporary forbearance until the cadet can make private arrangements for procurement. g. Cadet separation from the Kentucky Division. Upon separation from the unit, cadets are required to return all issued uniforms, uniform items, and all property issued, to the supply office. Cadet transfers to other NSCC/NLCC units are similarly required to return all gear/uniforms issued by the Kentucky Division. The supply officer shall inform the administrative officer regarding cadet’s failure to return issued gear and will result in correspondence to the cadet’s parents which may include an invoice requesting payment for gear not returned. 608. Current uniform requirements. The supply office shall keep a hard-copy version of the current regulations on NSCC/NLCC uniform requirements for both officers and cadets. The NSCC/NLCC does not mandate the quantity of each type uniforms required. However, each cadet should maintain an adequate number of each type of uniform for maintaining uniforms in good repair and keeping proper hygiene.
