What is Energy Action Month?
The President has proclaimed October 2015 to be Energy Action Month. For the Navy and Marine Corps Energy Action Month is an opportunity to reinforce how critical energy is to accomplishing our mission, and to encourage Sailors and Marines to look for ways to optimize their energy use to boost warfighting capabilities.
Why Do the Navy and Marine Corps Recognize Energy Action Month?
Power. Presence. These are fundamental to the Navy and Marine Corps’ mission to ensure stability, deter potential adversaries, and present options in times of crisis, and they depend on access to secure and reliable energy. We are deploying next-generation capabilities which boost combat effectiveness, maximize strategic options, and better protect our Sailors and Marines.
Look for ways to optimize your energy use.
