ALCOAST 399/16 – SOLICITATION FOR THE TRACEN CAPE MAY (TCCM) RECRUIT COMPANY MENTOR PROGRAM
TCCM is currently soliciting applications for the CY17 Recruit Company Mentor Program. The program is a critical part of the development of our new shipmates, and it is a very rewarding experience for both the new recruits and the members participating. Mentors visit TCCM to meet with their Recruit Company at three points during the eight-week program (Week 2, Week 5, and Graduation). We encourage a diverse and robust pool of candidates to apply in order to increase recruit exposure to high-performing Officer and Enlisted leaders and to provide the highest level of support and guidance to our newest Coast Guard members.
ACN 398/16 – AUXILIARY CLERGY SUPPORT (ACS)
This ALCOAST announces the Auxiliary Clergy Support (ACS) instruction. For many years, Navy chaplains detailed to the Coast Guard (CG) have played avital role in support of overall mission execution of the CG. They are responsible for administering, supervising, and facilitating religious ministry (RM) in support of Coast Guard units. When serving with the Coast Guard, officers of the Navy Chaplain Corps are referred to as “CG Chaplains.” Given manpower and logistic limitations, CG Chaplains may be prevented ordelayed in the timely response to meet RM requirements. The use of ACS is a crucial step in closing this shortfall and providing the best RM support possible for our CG members and their families. ACS expands RM support capacity within the CG to better meet the needs of CG members and other authorized personnel. ACS does not supplant CG Chaplains, but supplements and supports their mission.
