    Sailor’s suicide attempt prompts heroic response by sub crew
    By: Geoff Ziezulewicz   3 hours ago

    The crew of the submarine North Dakota raced through bad weather to save a shipmate’s life after an unidentified petty officer shot himself in the chest with his military-issued rifle while the vessel was underway, according to Navy officials and a post on the boat’s Facebook page.

    Cmdr. Mark Robinson, the boat’s captain, praised his crew in the post for their feverish efforts on Friday to get the sailor back to land.

    Corpsmen leapt into action to treat and stabilize the man’s injuries, while radiomen kept communications open in bad weather, allowing trauma doctors to remotely lend assistance, according to the post.

    The boat’s navigation and driving teams charted the fastest way back to port and cut through heavy seas on their way to the mouth of the Thames River in New London, Connecticut, where they transferred the sailor to a waiting tug.

    “From gunshot to ambulance took about 7 hours,” Robinson said in the post. “We drove up the river in dense fog, in the dark of night, with intense rain and wind. It was the worst weather I’ve ever seen for something like this.”

    Other crew members helped in other ways.

    Some lashed themselves to the boat’s deck in “Pea Soup” fog around midnight to form a human safety net, blocking the weather for paramedics conducting the transfer, he said.

    “Sailors dissembled parts of the ship to set up ways to get the sailor off in a stretcher more comfortably,” Robinson said. “When the sailor was lucid, other crew members held a phone in front of his face to let him watch music videos.”

    Some stood exposed in the storm to flash lights and help lead the tugs.

    “I can’t truly express the amount of heroism I saw in the last 48 hours,” Robinson said in Tuesday’s post. “As a result, the Sailor is recovering from surgery in a hospital in New Haven with his parents by his side.”

    “It was a terrible event,” he said, “but the sailors of (North Dakota) are heroes.”

    Navy re-up bonus bucks on the rise in '18 — can you cash in?
    By: Mark D. Faram   4 days ago



    Re-up bonuses are on the rise again, and the Navy’s new plan indicates the service expects to spend nearly $148 million on new selective reenlistment bonus contracts — $25 million more than last year’s total.

    With the Navy wanting to add to its manpower over the next few years, the money will go toward enticing nearly 19,000 bonus-eligible sailors to obligate for up to six years. And the service says they’ll be happy if about 7,500 sailors take them up on the offer.

    In continued good news, seven new skills are now eligible for bonuses, and another 26 existing skills will see increases.

    Good news, however, is always accompanied by some bad, and in this case, award levels of 22 skills will decrease, and seven others will be removed altogether.

    All increases and new award levels go into effect immediately, while those decreased or cut from the program won’t see changes reflected for 30 days, giving sailors in those skills time to cash in.

    The Navy pays bonuses at five maximum levels — $30,000, $45,000, $60,000, $75,000 and $100,000 — depending on the service’s need for a given skill.

    Half of each bonus total is paid upfront in a lump sum, and the remainder is equally divided and paid annually on the re-up anniversary. Award levels also depend on a sailor’s years of service, which determines reenlistment zones sailors fall under.

    The complete list of all bonuses is available in NavAdmin 311/17. See who’s in and who’s out in the summary of changes.
