. Make sure your personnel present a neat and well-groomed appearance at all times. No personnel should wear any article of clothing that is not prescribed as part of the uniform of the day without the permission of the proper authority. Although the Navy does not prescribe or distinguish among styles of haircuts, a wide variety of hair styles, if maintained in a neat manner, is acceptable. The determination of hairstyles for male and female personnel within the criteria detailed in the  U.S. Navy Uniform Regulations,  NAVPERS 15665, is an individual  decision. . Prohibit the use of profane, obscene, or vulgar words  or  gestures. .  The  importance  of  service  and  information provided to Navy members and their dependents must not be minimized. No person should accept any money or other compensation from a person in return for a service that is his or her duty to perform or render, regardless  of  the  circumstances  incident  to  such services. Nor should personnel give or offer any money or  other  compensation  to  any  person  for  a  service performed  in  the  line  of  duty,  regardless  of  the circumstances incident to such service. . Prohibit any action, whether or not specifically prohibited by the standards of conduct, that might result in or reasonably be expected to create the appearance of any violation of the government code of ethics. For example: Soliciting get rich quick investments, selling cosmetics, or furnishing a roster or the names of crew members to any solicitor without the permission of the commanding  officer  (CO). You will or should find yourself constantly scanning your  environment;  maintaining  liaison  with  contacts; talking with seniors, peers, and subordinates; and, in the process,  receiving  a  large  quantity  of  unsolicited information.  As  you  collect  information,  share  and distribute  the  information  with  your  personnel  to support  and  improve  customer  service.
