Navy Mustang Association to hold career info events

Navy Mustang Association Hawaii

The Navy Mustang Association, Hawaii Chapter will hold upcoming road shows.

Navy Mustangs are commissioned naval officers and chief warrant officers who were enlisted servicemen and women prior to being commissioned.

On Jan. 17 from 9 a.m. to noon at Hickam Memorial Theater, the Navy Mustang Association, Hawaii Chapter will hold the first of three Mus-tang Road Shows where Sailors and Marines will have the opportunity to learn about the Navy’s enlisted to officer commissioning programs.

The road shows provide opportunities for enlisted personnel to get educated on all of the programs in one place at one time. In addition, they will be taught by Mustangs — prior-enlisted officers who commissioned through those programs.

There are more than 300 Mustangs assigned at various commands throughout Hawaii and many of them will also be in attendance at the road shows to assist Sailors and Marines with questions they may have about the application process, programs or designators.

The show at Hickam Memorial Theater on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam is the first of three that will be conducted in January. If Sailors miss the Jan. 17 show, they can attend either a Jan. 25 road show to be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the base theater at Marine Corps Base Hawaii Kaneohe Bay or an upcoming show at JBPHH Wahiawa Annex. The date, location and times for the Wahiawa show are not yet confirmed, but will be announced.

Marines are eligible to apply for three of the Navy’s eight programs, the U.S. Naval Academy /Naval Academy Preparatory School (USNA/NAPS) program, for Medical Enlisted Commissioning Program (MECP) and for the Medical Service Corps In-service Procurement Program (MSC-IPP). For other commissioning opportunities, Marines need to work through the U.S. Marine Corps.

The Navy Mustang Association, Hawaii Chapter holds the road shows multiple times a year to account for Sailors and Marines who may be deployed can ensure that shortly after they return, there will be another road show that they can plan to attend.
