officers  and  enlisted  members  are  contrary  to  naval custom.  They undermine the respect for authority that is  essential  to  the  Navy’s  ability  to  accomplish  its military mission. Over  200  years  of  seagoing  experience  has demonstrated  that  seniors  must  maintain  thoroughly professional  relationships  with  juniors  at  all  times. This  custom  helps  prevent  seniors  from  using  (or giving  the  impression  of  using)  their  positions  to show  favoritism  or  preferential  treatment  or  for personal  gain.     It  also  helps  prevent  seniors  from becoming  involved  in  other  actions  that  undermine good order, discipline, authority, or high unit morale. Custom requires that junior personnel recognize and respect  the  authority  inherent  in  a  senior’s  grade, rank, or position. Fraternization  is  any  unduly  familiar  personal relationship that does not respect differences in rank and grade between an officer and an enlisted member. It   also   includes   senior-subordinate   supervisory relationships  between  officers  and  between  enlisted personnel. The  Uniform  Code  of  Military  Justice  provides for  punishment  when  fraternization  is  prejudicial  to good  order  and  discipline  or  brings  discredit  to  the naval service.  We cannot name every act that may be classified   as   fraternization. The   surrounding circumstances often have more to do with making the act  criminal  than  the  act  itself.     However,  dating, cohabitation, or sexual intimacy between officer and enlisted members is clearly inappropriate.   A private business partnership between an officer and enlisted member   is   also   inappropriate. Likewise,   such conduct  between  officers  and  between  enlisted members  when  a  senior-subordinate  supervisory relationship exists is equally inappropriate.   Conduct that  constitutes  fraternization  is  not  excused  by  a subsequent marriage between the offending parties. The  responsibility  for  preventing  inappropriate relationships rests primarily on the senior.  The senior is expected to control and prevent the development of inappropriate   senior-subordinate   relationships. However,  since  the  Navy’s  fraternization  policy applies   to   both   seniors   and   juniors,   both   are accountable for their conduct.   OPNAVINST 5370.2 contains additional information on fraternization. SEXUAL HARASSMENT Sexual  harassment  is  not  an  amusing  or  trivial issue. It   negatively   affects   the   morale   and productivity  of  service  members  and  results  in negative consequences for team building and mission accomplishment.   It may also be a violation of many articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.  The Navy’s   Equal   Opportunity   Manual   defines  sexual harassment as the following: Unwelcome  sexual  advances,  requests  for sexual  favors,  and  other  verbal  or  physical conduct  of  a  sexual  nature  constitute  sexual harassment  when  (1)  submission  to  such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of a person’s job, pay, or career; (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct  by  a  person  is  used  as  a  basis  for career or employment decisions affecting the person; or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect   of   interfering   with   an   individual’s performance  or  creating  an  intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment. The    Navy’s    long    tradition    of    military professionalism  results  from  positive,  aggressive leadership  and  its  history  of  taking  care  of  all  Navy members. Commanders,    supervisors,    and subordinates   are   all   responsible   to   provide   an environment   free   from   sexual   harassment. That includes   refraining   from   practicing   prohibitive behavior  and  actively  countering  and  reporting  such actions  promptly.    Refer  to  SECNAVINST  5300.26 and  OPNAVINST  5300.9  for  more  information  on sexual harassment. FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAM The mission of the Family Support Program is to increase  the  Navy’s  awareness  of,  and  access  to, useful  and  reliable  information,  resources,  and services  that  support  and  enrich  the  lives  of  Navy families  as  well  as  single  members. The  Family Support  Program  includes  three  primary  branches: (1) Family Services, (2) Overseas Duty Support, and (3) Family Advocacy. FAMILY SERVICES The  Family  Services  branch  is  a  worldwide network  of  Family  Services  Centers  (FSCs).   These centers offer a wide range of services.  The following are some of the services offered at an FSC: Family,   marriage,   personal,   and   child counseling Pre/during/post deployment programs 6-3
