From:   Commanding Officer, CORTRAMID          West   2012
To:     CORTRAMID West Midshipmen


1. Welcome to San Diego, California and Career Orientation and Training for
Midshipmen   (CORTRAMID) West Coast 2012!   CORTRAMID is designed to provide you
with a broad introduction to the four major warfare communities within the
naval service.    For many of you, this will be your first exposure to the
Fleet.   Beyond this introduction to operational Navy and Marine Corps units
and missions, CORTRAMID will also provides an opportunity to see the
infrastructure   and facilities found on typical Naval bases.    Take the
opportunity to discover the Exchange, the Commissary, and the Morale Welfare
and Recreation   (MWR) leisure and recreational opportunities   that exist for
you and your shipmates.

2. The CORTRAMID program provides extensive familiarization  with the
Aviation, Surface, Submarine and Marine Corps communities.  The specific
goals are:

 • To enable midshipmen to make informed decisions about future career
 • To familiarize midshipmen with the missions, tasks, and equipment within
   the various warfare areas.
 • To introduce midshipmen to the career development ladder within each
   warfare area.
 • To emphasize the importance of military courtesy, smartness, discipline,
   and physical fitness.
 • To reinforce leadership training through practical application of basic

3. You will be staying in Donnelly Hall, a Combined Bachelor Housing (CBH)
facility on the "dry side" of Naval Station San Diego 32~ street.     During
Marine Week, you will be billeted temporarily in quarters at Camp Pendleton.
The CORTRAMID West staff office spaces are located in Copp Hall, which is
across the parking lot from Donnelly Hall.    The CBH is NOT a college dorm; we
share it with other commands.   It is extremely important to be courteous and
follow the CBH rules of conduct to the letter.    Pay particular attention to
the rules restricting alcohol and visitors in your room.

4. The CORTRAMID staff consists of active duty Navy and Marine Corps
personnel and civilians from NROTC units across the country.       We are
dedicated to helping you achieve the CORTRAMID training objectives outlined
above.   Working with regional fleet commanders, we will provide you with a
valuable training experience.    However, be aware that there may be delays,
rescheduling of events, reassignments    of personnel and a variety of other
occurrences that can lead to momentary frustration and disappointment.      We
will attempt to minimize these occurrences, but we expect that you will also
exhibit a level of maturity and resourcefulness     when confronted with these
challenges.    The ability to maintain a positive attitude when faced with

adversity is the mark of a superior officer.  Do not let a poor attitude -
either yours or someone else's - deprive you of this tremendous opportunity
to experience the Fleet.

5. In addition to overseeing the training program, the staff is responsible
for evaluating your overall performance and potential for service as a naval
officer.   You are expected to perform at your peak level and be on your best
behavior.   Show up at each evolution on time and ready to train.  Midshipmen,
unless specifically excused for medical reasons, will participate in all
areas of training, regardless of their intended warfare specialty selection.
The following guidance is provided to aid you in completing the training
program successfully.

     a. Alcohol Policy. Midshipmen will not consume alcohol in any CBH
facility, regardless of age or local CBH policy.   No alcohol is allowed in
the rooms. The legal drinking age in California is 21.   Underage drinking by
Midshipmen will result in dismissal from CORTRAMID and returned to your
parent NROTC unit for disciplinary action.   Spot checks of CBH rooms and
entry/exits will be made during non-duty hours by staff personnel.

    b. Fraternization   Policy.  Navy policy regarding fraternization   applies
to you during this training period. Keep your relationships     with your
classmates professional   and consistent with the concept of "shipmate."     Due
to the unique nature of your assignment, midshipmen shall also refrain from
establishing unduly familiar relationships with active duty personnel,
enlisted or officer.    This restriction applies both on and off base.    In
particular, the billeting arrangements at the CBH during CORTRAMID will place
you in close proximity with junior enlisted personnel.     Although they will be
similar in age to you, be sure to set a professional    example as a leader and
quite possibly their future division officer.    Avoid improper social
interactions with these young Sailors.

     c. Legal Status.  As midshipmen assigned to active duty, you are now
subject to U.S. Navy Regulations   (NAVREGS), the Uniform Code of Military
Justice (UCMJ), and the lawful orders of the Commanding Officer and his
staff.   You are on active duty during this period and are subject to all
rules, regulations, and UCMJ statutes regarding fraternization,      sexual
misconduct, underage use of alcohol, forgery (fake IDs), visiting out-of-
bounds or off limits areas, and other misconduct.      In past years, significant
cases of misconduct have resulted in Midshipmen being held on active duty at
the CORTRAMID location for legal action.     Remember that individual University
privacy policies do not apply to service-members     on active duty.   If you have
any disciplinary problem during CORTRAMID, you can plan on your parent NROTC
unit CO being contacted about your conduct. Standard Navy drug and alcohol
testing policies will apply during CORTRAMID West.

6. In addition to your training, you will have ample free time to explore
and enjoy San Diego and Southern California.     San Diego is a great city, with
   Ld+c La ss beaches and attractions.
wo.r                                     It is known as "America's Finest City"
and lives up to its reputation.     Many San Diego area attractions are free to
military personnel in uniform with military 10 cards.     Contact your Company
Officers or the staff MWR Officer for more information.     San Diego is an
exciting and beautiful city with many great attractions; however, like any
large city it has many of the same problems shared by other cities around the
world.   In particular, some areas have high crime rates and gang activity.

     a. Visit the many safe, fun attractions in the area and stay away from
sites that Commander, Naval Region Southwest has designated as "off-limits."
Use the buddy system at all times and pay attention to the briefing you will
receive on areas of the city to avoid, and you will have a great and safe

    b. The city of Tijuana, Baja California, and all of Mexico are strictly
off limits.   You are prohibited from crossing the border while you are here
at CORTRAMID.   Mexico is off-limits due to continuing violent incidents
perpetrated against military personnel and other United States citizens.
This policy has been implemented to ensure your safety.

7. All CORTRAMID staff members are here to ensure you have an informative,
productive, and fun summer training period.  If you have any questions or
concerns on any subject throughout the four weeks, talk to your company
commander or any other member of the staff.  We can't fix problems that we
don't know about.

8. We want you to have a great training experience here at CORTRAMID.      It is
incumbent upon you to take charge of your own training experience during this
first encounter with the Fleet.    During transportation  or "down" time I
recommend that you have a book to read or take some notes for questions that
you want to ask.    During training evolutions, you will get the most out of
the experience by asking to participate in Marine/ship/sub/squadron
activities and showing personal interest.     Remember, you are dealing with
Navy professionals,   not people who are supposed to "entertain" you.   Show
your own professionalism   and take an interest in what they have to show you.
It may be the only time you get to sit in the cockpit of an aircraft,
participate in Marine field drill$, sail on a submarine, or conn a ship.
Enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity.

9. My entire staff stands ready to help you at any time.   Your safety and
training is our primary concern.  Help us out by looking out for your squad,
your shipmates, and yourselves and by complying with the rules.  Have a great
CORTRAMID experience!

I. WELCOME TO SAN DIEGO.    During your stay, you will be introduced to many aspects
of naval warfare at various ashore training sites, aboard warships and aircraft, and
in the field.   You will be provided w{th technical and professional  information in a
meaningful and constructive manner.   A lot of effort and focus has been put into your
training.  However, be aware that U.S. naval forces are currently tasked with
numerous, real world commitments that may force an unintended reprioritization    of
some of your training.   Be patient and take advantage of opportunities  to ask
questions.  This will enable you to gain knowledge of the capabilities of our naval
forces and gain insight into the career opportunities  that lie ahead.

    V. MIDSHIPMEN DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES.     Midshipmen will be rotated through
    leadership billets periodically   and will be briefed on their duties by the staff
    company commander.   As midshipmen on Active Duty for Training (ACDUTRA), you are
    subject to the NROTC Regulations of CNSTCINST 1533.2, U.S. Navy Regulations, and the
    Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Violations of rules and regulations can
    cause your training to be terminated and you to be ordered to return to your NROTC
    unit.   Serious violations will be adjudicated under the UCMJ.

    VI.   BERTHING. CBH information and regulations            are covered   in the CBH Welcome   Aboard
    Pamphlet. Some additional rules apply:

             •   Lock your doors and safeguard your key. Lockers will be locked           when you are
                 not in your room. Valuables must be secured at all times.

             •   Cleanliness of spaces is the responsibility of all hands. Upon arrival, your
                 room will be neat and clean.  It is your responsibility  to ensure that it
                 stays that way.  Personal gear shall not be left adrift.   No maid service
                 will be provided unless your personal items are picked up and locked away.

             •   Midshipman rooms which are substandard will be securely locked by the CBH
                 staff to prevent re-access by occupant midshipmen. Rooms found
                 unsatisfactory  will result in a follow-up room inspection.

             •   Dress while in the CBH lobby area is the prescribed uniform or appropriate
                 civilian attire.  The definition of appropriate civilian attire is provided
                 in paragraph XII.

             •   Immediately    report any discrepancies in the berthing facilities to the CBH
                 Desk Watch.     If the problem is not resolved, inform your company commander.


             •   Messing aboard ships and at other sites has been arranged.           Information   about
                 this will be included in the Plan of the Week.

             •   Messing ashore procedures for midshipmen will include presentation  of your
                 10, signing your name and social security number and then proceeding through
                 the line.  During CORTRAMID West, midshipmen should not be required to pay
                 for messing at any galley.   If you are asked to pay at any galley notify the
                 CORTRAMID Staff or your Company Officer immediately.

             •   Uniform    or appropriate   civilian    attire may be worn to meals.

VIII.   CORTRAMID STAFF DUTY OFFICER (SDO). An officer from the CORTRAMID staff will
be on duty every day, after hours.   During normal working hours the watch is
maintained at the CORTRAMID West office on the first floor of Copp Hall, Room C-I03.

IX. TRAINING SCHEDULE/PLAN OF THE WEEK.    The training schedule and/or Plan of the
Week will be published on Thursdays covering the next week.    Your midshipman chain of
command will inform you in advance about your training events.    The weekly and daily
schedule will be posted in the Donnelly Hall Lobby and at Copp Hall.

X. OPERATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS.     Every effort has been made to make your orientation
productive and meaningful.   However, there may be instances when changes to the
schedule occur due to circumstances beyond our control.    You will be advised as early
as possible of any changes to your training schedule.

    • Midshipmen are expected to report with a full sea bag (attached) as required by
NSTC directives.  Report any discrepancies  to the CORTRAMID Supply Officer, Ms.
Hurst, via your chain of command.   Uniform requirements for the various evolutions
will be listed in the Plan of the Week. It is imperative that you show up with all
required items in your sea bag in order to have a productive training evolution.

    • The uniform for most training events will be Navy Working Uniform (NWU) for
Navy option and desert MARPAT's. MAR PAT Green for Marine option during Marine Week
ONY. Steel-toed boots will be worn for all events during Surface and Aviation weeks.

    • The uniform for liberty is appropriate civilian attire.             Civilian   casual
clothes may also be worn to the picnic on Saturday, 26 May.

XII.   CIVILIAN   ATTIRE.   The following   is guidance   concerning   the wearing   of civilian

    • Appropriate    civilian attire may be worn when entering or leaving the base, at
all Navy Exchange    Facilities, CBH, Mess Halls, Special Services Facilities and off

    • Instead of describing what is explicitly appropriate, it may be useful to
define what IS NOT considered appropriate civilian attire: tank-top shirts, shirts
with offensive/derogatory    signs/words, white undershirts worn as outer garments,
short shorts, "sagging" pants or shorts, cut-offs, halters or tops which display a
bare midriff (unless physically at the beach), shower shoes as roritine footwear, and
items of military clothing except shoes and undergarments.      Males may not wear
earrings on any military installation at any time.      The wearing of collared shirts
(including "Polo" style shirts) is always considered appropriate, unless they have
offensive/derogatory   signs/words.    If you have belt loops - wear a belt.   If your
shirt is designed to be tucked in - tuck it in.

    • PT gear is certainly appropriate when actively engaged in physical training.                 A
CORTRAMID PRT will be conducted (May 26th) in the Navy PT Uniform.  Tank tops and
athletic bras may be worn when actively engaged in individual PT but are not
authorized for casual wear on or off base.   The use of headphones is strictly'
prohibited while walking or jogging on base.

XIII.   IDENTIFICATION  CARDS AND NOTE TAKING.  You must have your ID card and one copy
of your orders with you at all times (with the exception of scheduled athletic
training events).    Always carry paper and a pen for taking notes.

XIV.   ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES.   Contributing to underage drinking by midshipmen will
result in disciplinary action, termination of training at CORTRAMID and possible
disenrollment.   Consumption of alcoholic beverages in the CBH by those of legal age,
while permitted per CBH regulations, IS PROHIBITED BY NSTC AND CORTRAMID POLICY.    Do
not misinterpret  this policy.   ~dshipmen  will not have alcohol in any CBH or
barracks facility at any time.    This includes any other base or installation to which

you may travel during the course of your training.   Even if you are over 21, drinking
by midshipmen while at CORTRAMID is NOT AUTHORIZED. California State Law prohibits
the purchase or consumption of alcoholic beverages by anyone under the age of 21.
California laws are quite strict regarding driving under the influence.    If you are
arrested for DUI, you will face significant civil penalties.   Any arrest for DUI will
result in termination of training and you will receive an adverse fitness report.     A
DUI conviction may also result in a Performance Review Board and, most likely, .
disenrollment  from the NROTC program upon return to your NROTC unit.   In addition,
drunk and disorderly conduct is a violation of the UCMJ and will also result in a
termination of training and receipt of an adverse fitness report.   You are
responsible, and shall be held accountable,  for your actions.

bus, aircraft and/or small boats.

Tug Safety. Submarine at sea periods will not always permit an embarkation and
debarkation from a pier. Some of you may ride a tug to or from your submarine. You
must wear a life jacket when embarked on the tug. Personnel transfers between tugs
and submarines can be hazardous evolutions. Pay particular attention to directing
personnel during these evolutions and once aboard the submarine. Do not loiter

                                     CORTRAMID       WEST   2012

                           Introduction   to Surface        Warfare   Week

Training   Objectives

1. Indoctrinate midshipmen in the missions of the surface forces of the Navy.
2. Familiarize midshipmen with the duties of a surface warfare junior officer and the
career pattern of surface warfare officers.
3. Provide an introduction to shipboard damage control and fire fighting, as
4. Provide midshipmen, as feasible, time at sea in a surface ship or ship's visits,
which should consist of maximum hands-on exposure.

Goals. The goals of Surface Warfare Week are to familiarize midshipmen with the many
facets of the modern surface fleet and to motivate midshipmen towards careers in
surface warfare. These goals will be accomplished through a series of hands-on
training events in both shipboard and simulated environments.  Plans are to involve
midshipmen in everything from nighttime naval surface fire support to hands-on fire
fighting. All training will emphasize "doing" rather than "seeing."   As such,
midshipmen will learn more when they show a desire to participate. Midshipmen must
remain fully engaged during this demanding week by participating  and asking
questions. Naval Station San Diego offers many terrific opportunities  for training
for those who ask, so if your expectations are not being met, inform the Surface Week
coordinators immediately!

Schedule of Events. Each midshipman will rotate through most or all of the following
facets of the Surface Warfare community and its support elements:
       • Amphibious Ship or Cruiser/Destroyer  Underway
       • Navigation Seamanship and Ship Handling Simulator
       • Fire Fighting Training
       • Amphibious Warfare Familiarization
       • Fleet Commander's Maritime Operations Center Tour
       • Navy Center for Security Forces

Every attempt has been made to get all midshipmen underway on either a
cruiser/destroyer (CRU/DES) or amphibious  (AMPHIB) ship. Transit to, embarkation and
debarkation from fleet units will be made by some combination of bus, helicopter, and
small boats.

Preparation and Safety.   A medical screening will be conducted during your underway
period by the ship corpsman as a safety precaution. Passing this is a requirement to
participate in the fire fighting training. Ensure you are well hydrated (urine is
colorless or near colorless) in preparation  for the fire fighting training.

The uniform for all events in surface week will be Navy Working Uniform (NWU). When
going on underway trips, midshipmen should pack a small overnight bag with only the
necessary items (toiletries, undergarments,  etc). Storage space aboard ship will be
limited, so pack those items you will need to survive for up to 48 hours. The Navy is
an inherently hazardous profession, when aboard ship, use your common sense and ask
questions if you are unsure about where you should be or what you should be doing. A
Midshipman Liaison Officer (MLO) will be assigned to each group. Listen to your MLO,
as he or she is a fleet sailor who can answer your questions and keep you out of
trouble. Be tactful and remember that the crew has a job to do while you are on

Take advantage   of this terrific   opportunity,       have fun, and ask questions!

aviation and the career patterns of naval aviators/naval  flight officers.
3. Provide midshipmen,  as feasible, flight time in a fleet or training aircraft.

Goals.     Provide    each midshipman with an opportunity               to observe    and participate     in
various    aspects    of Naval Aviation.

Preparations.    You will be given an aviation flight screening the first weekend.   If
you have been medically cleared following your flight screening and are at least a
second-class swimmer, you will actively participate in water survival during the
first day of Aviation Week.    In addition to classroom lectures and practical
applications in the water, you will be required to complete a 25-yard swim wearing
flight suit and boots, without stops or support, using three different survival swim
strokes in addition to a two-minute tread/drown-proof.    You must bring the following
items with you in order to participate in the aviation physiology training: 10 card,
aeromedical up-chit, bathing suit (females must have a conservative one-piece suit)
and towel.    Do not bring any jewelry or valuables.

Assignment     Criteria    for Aviation   Week.    Assignment        is based   on the following        factors:

1. Aeromedical       up-chit   signed by a flight        surgeon.

2. Sickle Cell (HSS) and Hematocrit   (HCT) test results.   A missing or unsatisfactory
HSS or HCT test result will only allow a "low altitude" assignment because of the
physiological  impact on blood cells when in a low-pressure    (high altitude)
environment.  If you know you have this condition then speak up.

3. Successful completion         of Aviation    Water     Survival,      including    second   class   swimmer

4. Successful     completion     of Aviation    Physiology       Training.

5. NROTC Swim Qualification:  All midshipmen must be at least 3rd Class Swim
qualified to attend summer training, 2nd Class Swim qualification   is highly desirable
for all prior to commencement of training.   Swim qualifications  will be used to
further determine aircraft assignment.

Schedule of Events.  Midshipmen will be assigned to a NAS North Island or MCAS
Miramar Squadron during Aviation Week.  You will need the following items at the
squadron each day:

1. PT and shower gear:         Squadrons have a regular           PT schedule       in which   you should be
prepared to participate        each day.

2. Copies    of your orders      and Military     10:     Required      for daily messing.

3. Flight suit with white T-shirt and flight boots should be worn each day to the
squadron. Limit jewelry to wedding band on no-fly days.  No jewelry shall be worn on
the flight line.  Do not carry loose change or other small objects in your flight
suit pockets. Flight suits will be issued to you.

4. Civilian     clothing   and swimsuit/towel,          if desired,      for potential    Friday   activities.

5. Glasses     that correct    your vision     to 20/20      shall be worn during        all flight     events.

                          Introduction    to Marine      Week

Training   Objectives

1. Provide midshipmen an opportunity to operate and/or become familiarized
with the individual and crew-served weapons organic to the Marine infantry
2. Demonstrate to midshipmen the types of tactical knowledge, military
skills, and leadership qualities demanded of a Marine junior officer.
3. Introduce midshipmen to the various career opportunities  available to
officers commissioned into the Marine Corps.
4. Demonstrate the capabilities of equipment organic to the Marine Air Ground
Task Force.
6. Introduce midshipmen to the training environment of the Marine junior
7. Provide midshipmen  with an exposure to Marine physical fitness and combat

hike) and to maintain the fitness of midshipmen during Marine Week.
8. Marine Week training will include physical conditioning hikes, obstacle
course, Military Operations in Urban Terrain, Live Fire of Infantry Battalion
weapons, simulator training, fundamental tactics, techniques and procedures
and field hygiene and security operations.

Safety. A comprehensive  safety brief will be provided to all midshipmen on
the first day of Marine Week. Additionally,  all exercises, training
evolutions, and physical fitness events will be preceded by a safety
briefing. It is essential that all midshipmen are attentive to and adhere to
all safety guidelines for each event.


The Marine Week of CORTRAMID West 2012 is the next challenge you will face in
a successive line of challenges prior to receiving a commission. You are
encouraged to take away all that you can and learn as much as possible during
your week with the Marines. DO NOT WASTE THIS OPPORTUNITY!   This week will
provide you with additional insight to assist you in making an informed
decision about your future as an officer in the Navy/Marine Corps team.

The primary expectations of all midshipmen at Marine Week are two-fold. You
are expected to conduct yourself as professionals    and to adhere to and uphold
the established standards. In order to achieve the maximum possible benefit
and enjoyment from your participation    in Marine Week, you must be fully
prepared to be challenged, to apply yourself to the training, and to learn as
much as possible in a short period of time. The most important key to your
success in and enjoyment of Marine Week is your mental state of readiness and
a positive attitude toward training: a positive and enthusiastic     frame of
mind is important. Your physical readiness will also playa     significant role
in your ability to make the most of Marine Week. Therefore, you must ensure
you take advantage of any rest periods, that you eat properly (including
MREs) , constantly hydrate and be attentive to any physical problems you
encounter   (sunburn, blisters, dehydration, etc). Finally, you must take the
initiative to be fully prepared for all evolutions by bringing all specified,
required, or recommended gear or equipment for training. Additional detailed
expectations will be provided to you in the Rules of the Road for Marine Week

Much ,of the Marine Corps' long history of success in combat is directly
attributable to the training provided to Marines. The Marine Week of
CORTRAMID will strive to emphasize the training required to develop junior
Marine officers and to uphold the longstanding heritage of success of the
Marine Corps.   The more you sweat in peacetime the less you bleed in war.

gear adrift at their CBH rooms while they are absent.


CORTRAMID West is designed to be an introduction to the Navy and Marine Corps
team.   The staff is tasked with providing the support to make this experience
a fun and rewarding one.   A number of the ground rules are presented here to
make CORTRAMID West flow smoothly.

1. Be on time.  The responsibility of moving nearly 500 m~dshipmen is a
tremendous task that will require you to muster on time at the designated
point. Reading the plan of the day will assist you in this task.

2. Room swapping is not authorized.   Outgoing phone service has been removed
from all rooms assigned for CORTRAMID West with the exception of room-to-room
calls.   Incoming long distance calls will be available.   All midshipmen are
responsible for complying with CHB rules and regulations located in the CBH
Welcome Aboard folders in the rooms.   Don't leave valuables out.    Maids will
not clean trashed rooms or rooms with lockers open.    Laundry service does not
exist, so do not leave laundry in passageways unless you want it to disappear

3. Use of alcohol by individuals under the age of 21 is a violation of
California Law.   This law applies on and off base.  No use of alcohol is
authorized .in any CBH or barracks facility while assigned to CORTRAMID West,
regardless of age or station policy.   Individuals violating this regulation
will be dismissal from CORTRAMID and returned to their parent NROTC units for
disciplinary action. NOTE: Base policy as of the time of this instruction
prohibits alcohol in the barracks where the students are assigned~

4. Military protocol requires the rendering of salutes to all commissioned
officers as a matter of tradition, courtesy, honor and respect.    This rule
applies both on and off base while you are in uniform, whether or not the
officer you are saluting is himself/herself   in uniform.  If you recognize the
individual as a commissioned officer, from any service, in uniform or not, it
is appropriate to salute and render a pleasant greeting such as "good
morning, ma'am,N or "good evening, sir.N    The general rule is, when in doubt,
salute. Covers and saluting are not required inside the courtyard surrounded
by the four COpp Hall Buildings.

5. MEXICO IS STRICTLY OFF-LIMITS.  This measure is not meant to be punitive,
but continuing incidents south of the border involving military personnel
have necessitated this restriction for your own safety.

6. Fraternization  between midshipmen and enlisted and officer personnel is a
violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.     This behavior is
unprofessional  and will not be tolerated.   Midshipmen are not allowed to
visit members of the opposite sex in quarters.     Midshipmen will be segregated
within Donnelly Hall by gender; visitation by members of the opposite sex on
individual decks is also prohibited.    This policy does not prohibit meeting
"shipmatesN for liberty, but meeting for liberty will occur outside
individual quarters (example: meeting at CBH Quarterdeck or in CBH common
areas is acceptable).

7. The main galley is closed for renovations. The alternate galley will
require a head count for meals on Saturday and Sunday as this facility does
not normally provide "galley services".   If you plan to eat at the galley
over the weekend, notify your staff company commander through your chain of
command of the meals you plan to eat over the weekend.   Failure to properly
notify these individuals may result in the galley running out of planned menu

8. A copy of your orders will be necessary to enter the commissary   or
exchange.  You should carry your 10 card and a copy of your orders   at all

9. Curfew for midshipmen is 2300, Sunday through Thursday.    Liberty for
midshipmen who will. begin Aviation Week on Monday expires at 1600 on Sunday
to allow for a Sunday evening Aviation Physiology briefing and gear issue.
With the exception of the first weekend, there will be no liberty
restrictions,  other than curfew, on Friday and Saturday night which is 0100.
Midshipmen with family/friends   in the immediate area are not authorized to
stay with them during CORTRAMID without approval from staff personnel.

10. Liberty Log.   In all events, Midshipmen are required to sign in/out for
off-base liberty.   The log will be maintained by the Midshipman watch in
Donnelly Hall.   Failure to sign in and out will result in disciplinary

11. POV Policy.   Use of POVs is authorized for liberty.   However, individuals
who bring their POVs to CORTRAMID need to be aware that their vehicle must be
registered on base (temporary pass available at Pass and Decal on Harbor
Drive) in order to gain access.   In order to get a pass for the vehicle, it
needs to be registered in YOUR name, with current insurance, also in YOUR
name.   Obviously a valid drivers license is required as well. If you can't
meet this requirement, a pass will not be issued and you will be forced to
park off base.   National City is not a good place to park!   San Diego
freeways can be confusing if you don't know your way around.    Additionally,
California drinking and driving laws are very strict.    If you have your POV
in San Diego, you are required to inform your chain of command. If you are
bringing a POC, an electronic navigation device is highly recommended.
