DOD POLICY ON ELECTIONS

NOW — The Department of Defense has a longstanding and well-defined policy regarding political campaigns and elections to avoid the perception of DoD sponsorship, approval or endorsement of any political candidate, campaign or cause. The Department encourages and actively supports its personnel in their civic obligation to vote, but makes clear members of the armed forces on active duty shall not engage in partisan political activities. To mitigate the perception of endorsement or support, no candidate for civil office is permitted to engage in campaign or election-related activities while on a DoD installation or in a DoD facility. Any activity that may be reasonably viewed as directly or indirectly associating the DoD, or any component or personnel of the department, with or in support of political campaign or election events is strictly prohibited.

CONFLICT RESOLUTION

OCT. 11 — This class is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon at MFSC Pearl Harbor. A conflict is more than just a disagreement.

Conflicts continue to fester when they’re ignored and until we face and resolve them, they stay with us. This workshop helps people to manage conflict by examining their attitudes and behaviors when faced with conflicting situations and learning how to prevent it from escalating.

During the experience, participants can expect outdoor recreational activities designed to promote healthy communication, unity, courage, and even leadership.
