Senior Enlisted Advisor
MISSION: Generate mobilization readiness by providing administrative services, training support and world-class customer service to reserve personnel in support of surge and operational requirements for the Navy and Marine Corps team and joint forces.
VISION: We are in the profession of arms. Our purpose is to fight and win when called upon. Everything we do should be derived from that purpose. Also as professionals we are not just judged by what we do, but also by how we do it. In everything that we do we will be guided by three principals:
1. Do the right thing
2. Treat everyone with dignity and respect
3. Sailors take care of Sailors, and their families.
If we can keep our focus on why we are here and abide by these three principles in all that we do; then we will form a high functioning and cohesive team in the execution of the Navy Reserve mission.
The Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC) Harrisburg is responsible for the readiness of more than 200 Selected Reserve (SELRES) Sailors who make up 11 diverse units, which provide operational capabilities to their supported active-duty commands Navy-wide.
Units include: 3 NAVSUP units, 2 DLA units, NSF MECH, OPNAV SITE-R, OPS Support, 4MD 2/25, EMF Bethesda Detachment, and a Volunteer Training Unit.
The NOSC is responsible for the mobilization and demobilization process for individual augmentees and supports the families of those Reserve Sailors deployed in support of military operation worldwide.
Our greatest value is defined not only by our ability to support Navy’s mission with military expertise at a lower cost, but also our ability to enhance it with the civilian skills of our Sailors.
The men and women of NOSC Harrisburg are dedicated and willing to put civilian careers on hold to serve in defense of the country.
