Good morning!
NAVCO is offering another opportunity to create and share short, recorded shout-outs (15-20 seconds) with a Navy key message for ALL Sailors. These are a HUGE HIT with American radio affiliates.

We request and need your assistance by encouraging your Sailors to call 1-855-OUR-NAVY and record their shout-outs as per below. Participating Sailors can call from any available phone and NAVCO thoroughly screens each call before sharing with media so there is no need to monitor each one as they happen.

A few best practices to encourage participation: (1) Highlight in POD or POW; (2) Add a slide on SITE TV; (3) All-hands email; (4) Allow Sailors to use PAO outside line during specific periods of time & (5) 1 MC announcements.

Directions are below:
1. Call our toll-free number: 1-855-OUR-NAVY (1-855-687-6289) before August, 26, 2019 at 8:00 am EST.
2. Have the below script ready and follow the recorded voice directions after calling. There is a more detailed script attached as well.
3. Wait for 3-5 second pause after voice directions and record message after beep.

*** (PLEASE DELIVER WITH ENTHUSIASM, SPEAK AUDIBLY AND CLEARLY) ***
HI, I’M NAVY PETTY OFFICER JOHN SMITH FROM MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE AND CURRENTLY SERVING ABOARD THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER, USS RONALD REAGAN.
WE ARE FORWARD DEPLOYED TO THE WESTERN PACIFIC PROVIDING THE NAVY THE NATION NEEDS.
I WANT TO WISH THE MEMPHIS TIGERS GOOD LUCK THIS SEASON. GO BIG BLUE!
*** Sailors should tailor it to their command, AOR, hometown and team they are recognizing ***

4. Hang-up and the audio file will automatically be sent to NAVCO’s email.

Once received, NAVCO will thoroughly screen for useable files and share the audio file with a full range of radio media outlets in their hometown. If the shout out is picked up by a radio station, we will send all details back to the command PAO.

Please make sure to speak AUDIBLY and CLEARLY. If we cannot understand the name, hometown or command the shout-out will be unusable.
