    Has anyone read the Latest Shipmates from Admiral Papp? No more alcohol situations?

    ALCOAST 104/14
    COMDTNOTE 10000
    SUBJ: SHIPMATES 28 - CHANGES TO COAST GUARD SUBSTANCE ABUSE POLICY
    1. One of my highest priorities as Commandant is to ensure that the
    Coast Guard maintains a ready and proficient force to conduct our
    missions. The abuse of drugs, alcohol and other substances by Coast
    Guardsmen has a direct and substantial impact on readiness and
    proficiency of the force. Abuse of drugs, alcohol and other
    substances also contributes to other misconduct that is contrary to
    our ethos, core values and heritage. Further, after thorough
    consideration, I have concluded that there is a direct correlation
    between alcohol consumption by Coast Guardsmen under 21 years of age
    and readiness and proficiency of the force.
    2. I have thoroughly reviewed two years of significant work and the
    final report by the Coast Guard Substance Abuse Working Group. I
    have listened to the recommendations of the Coast Guard Leadership
    Council, and carefully deliberated over specific recommendations to
    strengthen the Coast Guards substance abuse policy governing abuse of
    drugs, alcohol and other substances. I have consulted with VADM
    Zukunft as the officer nominated by the President to be the 25th
    Commandant and my relief. Finally, I have deeply reflected on my own
    experience over nearly four decades as a leader, commanding officer
    and as Commandant.
    3. I have directed several specific changes to the Coast Guard
    substance abuse policy. These changes include:
    a. Establishing a minimum drinking age of 21 years of age for
    all
    active duty Coast Guardsmen, except when on authorized leave. While
    on authorized leave, Coast Guardsmen shall comply with the minimum
    drinking age for the jurisdiction in which they are present.
    b. Establishing and aligning service wide minimum standards
    linking mission requirements to restrictions on alcohol consumption
    based upon unit readiness status and the members assigned duties.
    This incorporates existing policies for aviation, boat forces and
    cutter forces, and includes specific guidance for COs/OINCs when not
    in an approved leave status.
    c. Allowing members only one opportunity to remove underage
    alcohol incidents (with no other associated misconduct) from their
    record.
    d. Eliminating first-level Flag officer second chance program
    retention authority for alcohol incidents, but enable Flag officers
    to recommend second chance waivers to the final discharge authority.
    e. Initiate administrative discharge proceedings for any member
    convicted of or found by a preponderance of evidence to have been
    drunk or impaired while operating a vehicle, aircraft or vessel.
    f. Abolish the term "alcohol situation" and associated policy.
    g. Add "command referral" to establish a three-tiered approach
    to
    alcohol screening: self-referral, command referral, and incident
    referral. Self-referral and command referral would be non-punitive
    actions to engage medical treatment.
    h. Separate documentation of medical diagnosis and treatment
    plans from administrative remark entries in personnel records.
    i. Implement "Command Need to Know" guidance to healthcare
    providers for disclosing patient/provider contact for mental health
    and substance abuse treatment. This will support the disclosure of
    fitness-for-duty determinations for substance abuse (regardless of
    referral means), command/incident-directed screenings, or violations
    of the drug abuse policy.
    j. Expand the scope of zero tolerance for illicit drug use by
    prohibiting the unlawful use of designer drugs, over-the-counter
    products, and other substances.
    k. Increase urinalysis quotas and scope of testing.
    4. These are important changes, and necessary to sustain our
    readiness and proficiency. Implementing and enforcing these changes
    will require ethical, courageous, compassionate and constant
    leadership by our officers and Chief Petty Officers, as well as
    leaders at every other level of the Service. I am confident that you
    will meet these expectations.
    5. COMDT (CG-1) will implement the policy changes in the coming weeks
    through Flag Voice and ALCOAST.
    6. Semper Paratus. Stand a taut watch.
    7. ADM Bob Papp, Commandant, sends.
    8. Internet release authorized.

    I love the bit about OIC's. Pretty much states you can never drink, even though he says otherwise. Papp said alot about improving the quality of life, referring specifically to housing when he first took over. So far it has only gotten worse IMO. My BAH is dropping hardcore, and now when I transfer, it sounds like the odds even as a second class of getting stuck in barracks is high.

    Well, as a CO/OinC/Senior leader you are always on call and expected to make a solid decision. Alcohol has been a problem and for the most part people haven't been able to a handle it therefore... someone else establishes the norm.

    BAH, unless you know the process you don't have much room to talk. BAH rates are based off the rental market for a specific area over a given period. It may not make much sense but that process is not related to the O10 that leads the CG. My BAH rate went down but for my area E5 and E6 went up a significant amount. I'm rate protected but it still went down for E7 w/dependents xfering in 2014 to Alamed.

    The BAH rates here got fucked because we had no representation from our unit. They became basically what Beale's rates are and have absolutely no reflection on the local market. I know it has no correlation to the O10 directly (its a DoD thing) however he specifically stated how housing and quality of life is one of the main focuses of his tour when he came through my govt house 4 years ago... But instead nothing has been done, government housings are still being torn down, not rebuilt. Single members are not given option to be able to live on the economy anymore, and locally with the BAH rate it would be financially impossible for an E-4 to survive alone. There was even talk about utilizing Beale's government housing which is a hell of a drive, so while BAH is not his problem, he hasn't helped the quality of life at all. In fact, he has instead instilled fear in many members. Just think, E-6 had two beers to drink, made a poor decision to drive, maybe he was perfectly capable of driving even. Red and blues in the rear view mirror, maybe hell pass a sobriety test, but he's not willing to risk it....his career would be over...adrenaline pumping...so he bolts.

    Even the other message that came out... Oh you got a DUI within your last enlistment. We forgave you for it, you've been a productive member to the service.....oh wait....never mind. We do t forgive you anymore, your career is over, and damnit, you were at 18 years too!

    I've met him personally a few times and I'd love to share my experience but here is not the place. /rant

    I'm really excited to get up to Juneau, I am a geobatch on the Waesche and let me tell you if you get the chance to do that...pass. I'm excited to hunt, fish, and be back together with my family at last. I will miss the boat life (some of it...) but I am ready to move on.

    Geez...so many people on this forum, you can run into a member anywhere.

    I'll be in Juneau next year, doubt you'll pull in because they don't often get big cutters, but if you do let me know.
