Marotta held an all hands call with local Sailors, recruiters and staff following his tour of headquarter spaces. All were pleased to hear from him and his willingness to take questions. I think it was a good visit said Randy Pacheco, staff member from NRD New England headquarters, He seemed very personable, very approachable and down-to-earth, he had a lot of information pertaining to our job, took some questions and it seems like he's going to get the answers.
Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR), Information Technology (IT) and station issues were the top three topics Marotta stressed during the all hands call and with each Navy Recruiting Station (NRS) visited. He also discussed mission readiness and accomplishment in the fleet and the importance of the welfare of both military and civilians.
Marotta was pleased to have the opportunity to meet with and get to know the recruiters from NRS Manchester, Portsmouth, Danvers and Malden. I think the Admiral's visit was great, he listened to our concerns answered questions and I think he's going to make some changes, said GSM1 Sambath Ham, the leading petty officer for NRS Malden.
Marotta made a point to express his gratitude for all the hard work all Sailors and staff do every day to support the recruiting mission.

Commander of Navy Recruiting Command, Visits New England and Welcomes Future Sailors at Fenway

Story and photos by MC1 Kim Smith, Navy Recruiting District New England Public Affairs

BOSTON, Mass. Rear Adm. Annie B. Andrews, commander, Navy Recruiting Command (CNRC) received a warm welcome from the Sailors and staff of Navy Recruiting District (NRD) New England during her recent visit to Boston, May 2-3.
Andrews started her two-day engagement trip with a tour of the recruiting district headquarters given by Cmdr. Andrew Plummer, the commanding officer of NRD New England. This was a great opportunity for Admiral Andrews to meet with and engage our Sailors on a wide variety of topics, said Plummer.
During her all hands call she addressed top level Navy matters reviewing the "big picture" to include mission readiness and accomplishment in the fleet, female accessions and the welfare of both military and civilians. Before she discussed those areas, however, she let everyone know how pleased she was to be there by sharing a bit of nostalgia.
It's taking me really way back. It was actually right here in the New England states where I had my first take on getting to know about recruiters and all about recruiting, said Andrews. She once served as the Officer in Charge of the Boston Military Entrance Processing Station.
Andrews was pleased to have the opportunity to meet with and get to know the civilians and Sailors and expressed her gratitude for all the hard work they do every day to support the recruiting mission. I couldn't be more pleased, said Andrews.
During her short visit, Andrews made a point to engage in the local community and meet with Future Sailors. During her first evening she visited Fenway Park to swear-in 20 Future Sailors, the newest men and women to become a part of the Navy family. It was an enjoyable celebration where the group of Future Sailors was formally recognized in front of thousands of Red Sox fans during the pre-game ceremonies.
"It was awesome to have an admiral swear us in," said one Future Sailor from Boston.
Andrews' visit also included a special visit to meet with Roger A. Knight IV, director of Veteran Outreach for the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital's Home Base Program. "Recruiters are an important part of all military branches and come from many different duty backgrounds. When they are amongst the civilian population they can feel isolated from their military counterparts. We here at the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program understand what it means to serve our country, and we want to make sure the recruiters of New England know about our services should they or their families need us," said Knight. The Home Base Program was created in 2009 to serve Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and families affected by combat or deployment-related stress and traumatic brain injury-the "invisible wounds of war."
The trip concluded when Andrews visited with Navy Reserve Sailors at the Reserve support center (NOSC) located in Quincy, Mass., where she held an all hands call. Sailors were pleased to hear from her and her willingness to take questions.
"I think it's great to have the opportunity to speak with someone who can address issues that often get lost in the shuffle," said DC2 Matthew Lehr, NOSC Quincy's Junior Sailor of the Year.
Cmdr. Andrew Plummer summarized the visit by saying, "We were happy to be able to show the Admiral our superb team of civilian and military members who accomplish our critical recruiting mission each and every day. We look forward to her next visit with Team Patriot."

Change of Command Ceremony

By MC1 Kim Smith, NRD New England Public Affairs

BOSTON, Mass. (NNS) Navy Recruiting District (NRD) New England bid farewell to one commander and welcomed aboard another during a change of command ceremony at Faneuil Hall, November 8.

Cmdr. Andrew Plummer relieved Cmdr. Diego Codosea as commander, Navy Recruiting District New England.

Capt. Gregory Maguire, commander of Navy Recruiting Region East, gave the ceremony's keynote address. "Command, whether its sea or shore remains a huge responsibility and Diego it's been a true pleasure to serve with you, to be here to honor your leadership" said Maguire. "The accomplishments have been outstanding, his leadership and vision were influential in shaping the strong future of our Navy and by my count more than five thousand Sailors have come in under his watch. Skipper, I speak for all the commanding officers when I say, job well done thank you for your leadership and support."

Maguire presented Codosea with the Meritorious Service Medal as an end-of-tour award. Codosea attributed the award to the hard work and support of the NRD New England Sailors and civilian employees.

The ceremony marked the end of Codosea's tour as both Commanding Officer and Executive Officer for NRD New England since October 2010. Codosea recalled lessons learned and achievements made by the men and women who make up the Navy Recruiting force, before reading the orders relieving him of command. "I'm grateful and honored to be standing here today," said Codosea. "Your superb efforts have become the foundation of the success here at NRD New England and I fully expect that to continue with the new CO, Cmdr. Plummer."
Upon assuming command, Plummer thanked Codosea for his leadership, training and mentorship. "I could not be more proud to be taking responsibility for this exceptional organization," said Plummer.

"We will continue to accomplish great things together while focusing even more on our most important asset: NRD New England personnel."

"We will bring this command to new heights by mentoring, training, watching out for and taking care of each other," said Plummer. "With this in mind I task each and every one of you to operate every day with integrity, honesty and safety in mind."

Cmdr. Plummer reported to NRD New England as the executive officer in May 2012. His background includes Strike Fighter Squadron 125 Lemoore, California for initial training in the F/A-18C hornet aircraft, Strike Fighter Squadron 192 Atsugi, Japan with Carrier Air Wing Five. His squadron was assigned to USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63) and deployed to the Western Pacific and Arabian Gulf where he flew combat missions in support of Operation Southern Watch over Iraq.

Following his fleet tour he reported to Training Squadron 22 in Kingsville where he served as the Weapons Standardization Officer training student aviators. While there, he transitioned to the Full Time Support community of the Naval Air Force Reserve and was subsequently assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron 201 out of Fort Worth, Texas for his Department Head tour. There he served as the Safety, Administrative and Maintenance Department Head over a three year assignment. He also attended the TOPGUN Advisory Class where he was designated as Advisory Tactics Instructor training fleet aviators in threat pilot tactics and weapons system employment. When Strike Fighter Squadron 201 disestablished, Cmdr. Plummer was assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron 204 in New Orleans, La., where he continued his role as an advisory tactics instructor and served as the Operations and Maintenance Officer.

As part of Navy Recruiting Command, Region East, NRD New England covers an area of 93,500 square miles. The district is comprised of 10 divisions with 215 personnel, 65 Navy Recruiting Stations and four Navy Recruiting Processing Stations (NRPS).

With 70 percent of the world covered in ocean, 80 percent of the world's population living near coasts and 90 percent of the world's commerce traveling by water, America's Navy is very much a global force for good. NRD New England's mission is to recruit the best men and women for America's Navy to accomplish today's missions and meet tomorrow's challenges.












NRD New England Changes Command

By Chief Mass Communication Specialist Joshua J. Wahl, Navy Recruiting District New England Public Affairs


BOSTON (NNS) -- Naval Recruiting District (NRD) New England held a change of command ceremony in Faneuil Hall, March 6. Cmdr. Brian Doherty, a Charlestown, Mass., native, relieved Cmdr. Pat Hart, a Pensacola, Fla., native as commanding officer.

Commander, Navy Recruiting Command, Rear Adm. Brendan McLane, was the guest speaker crediting Hart with a successful tour that led the command to a top recruiting district in the nation.

"Hard work, friendship, loyalty, cooperation and enthusiasm are what you believe in," said McLane. "Continue being an inspired leader, continue sharing inspirational hopes to those that need them, continue being the example for all of us."

Hart was responsible for the welfare, discipline and training of over 200 military and civilian employees across New England, eastern New York, and Europe earning the Meritorious Service Medal. He attributed the result to the continued efforts of his crew.

"When I took command back in June of 2018, we had some challenges, but even though we had hard work to do, I saw this as an opportunity," said Hart. "You see, we had something special happen here, and the secret was not about recruiting. Sure, we had recruiting experts, we made changes, we worked hard, but the secret, we came together as a team. Together, and only together were we able to achieve greatness. Anybody can be good, but we were great."

The ceremony marked the end of Hart's tour as both the Executive Officer and Commanding Officer spanning from Dec. 2016 to March 2020.

"A big part of our success is leadership," said Hart. "A big thank you to our wardroom and chiefs mess for mentoring our Sailors and providing the leadership to turn this command around."

Upon assuming command, Doherty expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to command reminding the men and women of NRD New England how far they have come while looking ahead to the role they will continue to fill for the U.S. Navy.

"We have changed the mindset of our peers as well as the echelon above us, from doubt, to surprise and also into regarding us as the district they can depend upon to provide the high-quality recruits that our nation needs," said Doherty. "I am humbled, and I am proud to be the 15th commanding officer at New England."

Doherty reported as the executive officer, NRD New England in August 2018. His background includes a Master of Science in operations research from Naval Postgraduate School, Officer in Charge at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island Personnel Support Detachment, Training Officer aboard USS Nimitz (CVN 78), budget head within OPNAV's strategic resourcing office (OPNAV N100), military planner at National Security Agency, Deputy N1 for U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. TENTH Fleet.

NRD New England covers over 93,500 square miles encompassing the states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and the Eastern half of New York. Headquartered out of Boston, Mass. the command has more than 35 recruiting stations, eight Navy Operation Support Centers, four Military Entrance Processing Stations, and maintains two stations overseas at Kaiserslautern, Germany and Naples, Italy covering the entire territory of Europe, Southwest Asia and the Middle East.

Navy Recruiting Command consists of a command headquarters, two Navy Recruiting Regions, 15 Navy Recruiting Districts and 11 Navy Talent Acquisition Groups that serve more than 815 recruiting stations across the world.
