[quote=supbrow;8472]I’m an Operational Support Officer (OSO) for Military Sealift Command and I plan training exercies and projects for MSC Reservists, as well as for Merchant Marine Reservists (MMR).
I am looking for Reservists, including MMR’s, to perform their duty with MSC at my command overseas. Please contact me if you are interested and want more info.
In addition to contributing the valuable operational support that MMR’s provide, I ask each MMR to give a training brief to our staff on what you do in the Maritime industry. This is invaluable training for us!
It would be very useful for everyone with the GMDSS-O license to obtain an Intelink-(U) Passport account. Once you have a Passport account you will be able to instant message someone onboard a US Navy Ship who has a Passport account as well. For Example…The GMDSS operator could use the Ships INMARSAT terminal to access the internet. Once the operator has internet access he can logon to the Intelink-(U) site, use the messaging tool and IM someone in CIC onboard a US Navy Warship that is underway. This would help crewmen onboard ships like the Maresk Alabama. Thank you for listening and have a great day. The level of classification for this system is Sensitive but unclassified.
