Wait for a three to five-second pause after voice directions and record message after beep. NAVCO asks that participants speak audibly, clearly and with enthusiasm. The script is as follows:

“Hi, I’m Navy (rank) (full name) from (home-town), (home state) and currently serving at (command) or aboard (ship), operating out of (duty station) or forward in the (AOR) providing the Navy the nation needs.

I want to wish my (spouse, family, mom and dad) and everyone in my hometown of (hometown) happy holidays (or Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, etc.) And a Happy New Year! I hope to see you all very soon. Go Navy!”

Sailors should tailor it to their command, area of responsibility, hometown and family. Hang up and the audio file will automatically be sent to NAVCO’s email.

Once received, NAVCO will thoroughly screen and share usable audio files with a full range of radio media outlets in the Sailor’s hometown. Shout-outs will be unusable if the message is indiscernible.
