Military Sealift Command launched its redesigned public website and blog July 16 and 17.
The new website is available at www.msc.navy.mil and includes a dynamic, user-friendly interface with updated content about the command's mission, vision and support to warfighters worldwide.
"These updates are designed to inform the general public and members of the media about MSC: who we are, what we do, and why our Navy needs its noncombatant fleet," said Rear Admiral T.K. Shannon.
"MSC is committed to delivering meaningful and current information on its global operations while garnering feedback from its customers, and our website serves that purpose," Shannon said.
As part of its new online presence, MSC's blog interface was updated as well. Blog topics include the commander's perspective, program-specific stories, career opportunities, energy initiatives and support to Navy and DOD warfighters worldwide.
MSC's blog is available at: http://MSCSealift.dodlive.mil
Information specifically pertaining to civil service mariners is now available at a password enabled site: http://CIVMAR.sealiftcommand.com
Military Sealift Command operates approximately 110 noncombatant, U.S. Navy civilian-crewed ships that replenish U.S. Navy ships, conduct specialized missions, strategically preposition combat cargo at sea around the world, and move military cargo and supplies used by deployed U.S. forces and coalition partners.
