Recognize the policy for and identify the need for the Navy’s energy conservation program. Most of the Navy’s ships and all of its aircraft use petroleum-based fuel. In addition, the Navy’s vehicles used for ground transportation, such as cars, trucks, and buses, also use petroleum. That gives you an idea of how much the Navy depends on petroleum—without it, the Navy couldn’t move. Navy bases also use petroleum fuel for heating and running electric plants. We get most of our petroleum in the form of crude oil from the Middle East countries. We cannot rely on oil from that area forever because political unrest exists there. Besides, only so much oil exists in the earth. Therefore, we must conserve as much of our petroleum resources as possible. The Navy’s policy on energy conservation is that it will make all possible efforts to improve the way it uses energy  resources.  The  Navy  will  not  compromise readiness,  effectiveness,  or  safety  in  its  energy conservation  efforts.  One  of  the  Navy’s  energy conservation goals is to ensure it provides the fleet with enough  fuel  to  sustain  peacetime  and  combat operations. Another objective is to reduce energy costs and dependency on unreliable energy sources while conserving petroleum. You can help to conserve our energy resources by reporting  wasteful  practices  to  your  supervisor  or leading petty officer (LPO). REVIEW 2 QUESTION Q1.  W h a t   i s   t h e   N av y ’s   p o l i c y   o n   e n e r g y conservation? NAVY SPONSOR PROGRAM Learning Objective: When you finish this chapter, you will be able to— Recognize  the  purpose  of  and  identify  the responsibilities of the Navy Sponsor Program. The Chief of Naval Operations set up the Navy Sponsor  Program  to  ease  the  relocation  of  naval personnel  and  their  families  when  transferred  on permanent  change  of  station  (PCS)  orders.  This program has helped thousands of Navy families. Navy policy regarding assignment of sponsors is as follows: Assignment of a sponsor is mandatory in the case of PCS orders to or from any activity. In  all  other  cases,  individuals  should  request assignment of a sponsor through the use of the sponsor  request  form,  NAVPERS  1330/2, entitled Navy Sponsor Notification. NOTE If you are being transferred on PCS orders, desire a sponsor, and have not heard from your new command, you can request assignment of a sponsor  using  the  sponsor  request  form, NAVPERS 1330/2. School commands have developed home port and/or country information packages or packets to all personnel being transferred on PCS orders, especially first-term members. If you are assigned as a sponsor for a fellow naval member who is scheduled to transfer to your location,  fully  accept  the  responsibility  of sponsorship. You can help make the difference between a good move and a bad one for the person  being  transferred  as  well  as  for  that person’s family. Using the following checklist (table 1-1) may help you be a better sponsor: OVERSEAS DUTY SUPPORT PROGRAM Learning Objective: When you finish this chapter, you will be able to— Identify the Overseas Duty Support Program to include  sources  of  information  available  for single Sailors and Navy families.
