Bottom Line Up Front:
Starting November 1st 2014 travelers that fall under the Joint Federal Travel Regulations will receive 75% of their Lodging and Meal expense for travel spanning 31-181 days. They will receive 55% of their lodging and meal expense for travel spanning 181+ days. Travel less than 31 days remains unchanged.
This change is a direct result of belt tightening across all of the Department of Defense and is reflected in the most recent Joint Federal Travel Regulations.

The Navy Physical Readiness Program Released the Navy Bachelor Housing – Barracks – Cookbook. It is a free download with 30 pages of easy to make, healthy meals designed for the Barracks Bachelor / Bachelorette.
WASHINGTON (NNS) — Commander, Navy Installations Command’s Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System (NOFFS) program is expected to launch three new workout series apps for your smart phone or tablet, June 20. These high-intensity programs – the Strength, Endurance, and Sandbag series – provide Sailors with a “best-in-class” physical fitness and nutrition program.
NOFFS was developed by the Navy in partnership with EXOS (formerly Athlete’s Performance Institute). The Operational Series provides the foundational exercises that are designed to replicate the activities Sailors conduct in their operational duties: lifting, pushing, pulling, and carrying. Each additional series (Strength, Endurance, and Sandbag) was developed to provide training modes that address the special interests of users. RM »
R 122105Z SEP 13 FM CNO WASHINGTON DC//N1// TO NAVADMIN INFO/CNO WASHINGTON DC//N1// UNCLAS//N06110// NAVADMIN 231/13 MSGID/GENADMIN/CNO WASHINGTON DC/N1/SEP// SUBJ/PHYSICAL READINESS PROGRAM POLICY CHANGES// REF/A/DOC/OPNAV/11JUN11// REF/B/DOC/OPNAV/12JAN09// NARR/REF A IS OPNAVINST 6110.1J, PHYSICAL READINESS PROGRAM. REF B IS OPNAVINST 6100.3, DEPLOYMENT HEALTH ASSESSMENT (DHA) PROCESS.// RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN outlines policy changes to ref (a) that are effective upon the release of this NAVADMIN. a. Sailors requiring a deployment health assessment (DHA) in the form of either a Post Deployment Health Assessment (PDHA) or a Post Deployment Health Re-assessment (PDHRA), must be within assessment periodicity to participate in the PFA. b. The number of days allowed for Sailors to complete the physical readiness test (PRT) after the official body composition assessment (BCA) date is increased from 10 to 45 days. 2. Medical clearance. Per ref (a), paragraph 5b; the PFA includes a medical screening, BCA, and PRT. a. Per ref (a), enclosure (1) paragraph 4d, Sailors shall not participate in the PRT without medical clearance. New medical screening policy requires all Sailors to maintain a current PHA, which includes, when required, a current DHA - either PDHA or PDHRA. Sailors required to complete a DHA that are not current and those who have not completed a PHA within the required periodicity are precluded from participation in the PRT portion of the PFA. If a PFA (BCA and PRT) is not completed because of a delinquent PHA or DHA, the commanding officer (CO) may assign the member a "UA" status in the Physical Readiness Information Management System (PRIMS) for the missed PFA. b. All personnel are required to complete their Physical Activity Risk Factor Questionnaire (PARFQ) in PRIMS as a prerequisite to participate in the PFA. The PARFQ is not valid unless the PHA and, if required, the DHA are within the required periodicity. c. A "yes" response to any question on the current cycle PARFQ other than question one, requires medical clearance be documented on the bottom of the PARFQ and certified by an authorized medical provider unless a medical waiver is required. If a medical waiver is required, the waiver must be issued on the official PFA medical waiver/clearance (NAVMED 6110/4) and approved by the CO prior to the BCA portion of the PFA. d. A PARFQ is not required if the PRT will not be conducted (i.e. DEP/OP, IA, TAD, etc). 3. Sailors can check the status of their PHA/DHA by logging into BUPERS on-line at https://www.bol.navy.mil/ and selecting individual medical readiness status. 4. BCA scheduling requirements. The BCA shall be completed within 45 days of, but not less than 24 hours prior to, participation in the PRT. The official BCA is the first and only BCA taken during the command PFA. If the recorded PRT is not completed within 45 days of the official BCA, the CO may assign a participation status of "UA" for the PRT. This policy applies to both active and reserve Sailors. 5. Above policy updates will be incorporated into the forthcoming revisions of refs (a) and (b). 6.
