Three Things to Remember

three things to remember
black and white are equal
in the eyes of god
created for his penchance
for diversity
though many would beg to differ
the healthy child who fails to laugh
or smile for two days
shows something has gone wrong
with us, not them
that we are the ones to seek
psychiatric care, not them
the air has turned hotter
from our own negligence
not the vengeance of god
the world would end
on the hands of men, not god
he only acts according to necessity

inspired by

Three Things to Remember
A Robin Redbreast in a cage,
Puts all Heaven in a rage.
A skylark wounded on the wing
Doth make a cherub cease to sing.
He who shall hurt the little wren
Shall never be beloved by men.
William Blake

Three Things That Cannot Be Hidden

allegedly there are three things that cannot be hidden.

the sun
the moon
and the truth

throughout my life i have hidden the truth
about myself and it will still be that way
till i take my last
breath

do not insist in seeing that face of truth
my truth is ugly
and i have seen it from the very first day
that they brought
me here
without my permission

i know you like to see it and perhaps describe the horrible details of its
features
i plea before you
do not lift the cover of my being
you may soon regret that you live in this world having seen
the ugly face of my
truth

do not insist to see my truth
it may be the cause of your untimely death
and the gods may pity you

look at me
i wear a smile but my heart is bleeding
it is inflamed
but never bursting.

We Complimented Each Other Very Well

You believed in me as I believed in you
We complimented each other so well
When my back was against the wall
You brace me from my fall

In my darkest hour
You were my strength, my power
You gave me courage to keep on pushing through
Despite some thing’s I’ve done
You said that I’m the one
That makes your life whole and complete

We complimented each other very well
We complimented each other and the whole wide world could tell
We complimented each other that I’m shore
We complimented each other and you were the one that I adore

Most people said we belong together
We complimented each other so well
Inseparable and you couldn’t pull us apart
You have a special place in my heart

With you I was never alone
You just call I would be right home
You’d be right there to help me make it through
When we are old and gray
From your side I’d never stray
You have made my life whole and complete

For my love for you will never end
For you were my best friend
No gift as precious I could ever find
For you were so warm, tender, and kind

Your light no more shall I see
But in my heart you’ll always be
The storm is over piece may you lay
For tomorrow for you a brighter day

Go forth my beloved into the light
For now everything will be all right
Dream a better dream for you are in a better place
Come now the dawn I must face

Your memory will linger with me forever
For your sweetness I could forget never
You were there when I needed you most
Now I lift my glass to you to toast
I will miss you each and every hour
For you were my strength and my power

Three Things

three things
three balls of fire burning and burning
before me

1. sex
2. love
3. power

i cannot grab all
i may burst and burn and burn and burn

i had sex this morning.
and it is not trite.

now i can have power,
and then who knows i may graduate from the bickering of the
parts of my being

who knows i can have you finally in the form
of love,
not, a thing, not a thing, not a thing.

I Know Very Well How I Got My Name

A child in a curious phase
A man with sullen ways
Oh, I know very well how I got my name
You think you were my first love
You think you were my first love, but youre wrong
You were the only one
Whos come and gone
When thirteen years old
Who dyed his hair gold ?
Oh, I know very well, I dont need to be told
You think you were my first love
You think you were my first love, but youre wrong
You were the only one
Whos come and gone
You were the only one
Whos come and gone

William Butler Yeats

Three Things

`O cruel Death, give three things back,'
Sang a bone upon the shore;
`A child found all a child can lack,
Whether of pleasure or of rest,
Upon the abundance of my breast':
A bone wave-whitened and dried in the wind.

`Three dear things that women know,'
Sang a bhone upon the shore;
`A man if I but held him so
When my body was alive
Found all the pleasure that life gave':
A bone wave-whitened and dried in the wind.

`The third thing that I think of yet,'
Sang a bone upon the shore,
`Is that morning when I met
Face to face my rightful man
And did after stretch and yawn':
A bone wave-whitened and dried in the wind.

I Get Along Without You Very Well

(hoagy carmichael)
I get along without you very well
Of course I do
Except when the soft rains fall
And drip from the leaves, then I recall
The thrill of being sheltered in your arms
Of course I do
But I get along without you very well
Ive forgotten you just like I should
Of course I have
Except to hear your name
Or someones laugh that is just the same
But Ive forgotten you just like I should
What a guy
What a fool I am
To think my breaking heart could kid the moon
Whats in store
Should I phone once more
No its best that I stick to my tune
I get along without you very well
Of course I do
Except perhaps in spring
But I should never think of spring
For that would surely break my heart in two

Poor Happy Jimmy

(tribute to jim croce)
Give him a soft guitar to play what he choose
He aint got no fancy chords
Only got his blues
Poor happy jimmy
I didnt know him very well but he was with me
And I wont take a dime just to make it rhyme
Cause I cried and cried the day he died
Poor happy jimmy
Give him sweet melodies he sing with all he has
He got a funky paraphrase
It sound like good time jazz
Poor happy jimmy
I didnt know him very well but he was with me
And I wont put the blame on the aeroplane
But I boo-hood on the day he flew
Poor happy jimmy
I wonder why
That I cant forget all the things you said about your life and times
You set a spell inside
Oh james your soft guitar it make me feel to cry
The sole consolation is
A good man never dies
God bless you jimmy
I love you with all my heart so deep within me
And you wont see the end of your lonely friend
Cause Ill pray and pray for you every day
Poor happy jimmy
Poor happy jimmy ....

I could have done other useful things than writing a poem

Sometimes I have regrets writing poems
Love poems, poems about virtue and heroism
Poems that explain myself, that justify
This nothingness
That fill this emptiness,

What are these but signs and metaphors of
My weaknesses,
Symbols of my hopelessness
Ciphers of my uselessness
To life’s dreams, unfulfilled, stars that I have not
Reach or even touch with the words in my lips

I could have danced, and danced so well
Sweat things out shedding sighs and skins on the floors
I could have played a role, acted my way out
Exiting through the doors of author’s characters
And feel this sense of
It was her it was him it was not me

Sometimes I feel
To be a poet is to be dumb and dead
To demand nothing but this honor
This laurel this principle
That I cannot eat that I cannot sell that I cannot
Make use of,
Useless poetry, trashy, nothing but bad breathes
Of my being
Foul and nauseating to my sense of
What I dream what I want to be
To be this great, respected man of power
One that commands rather than take orders
From someone claiming superior feathers

I have long wanted to stop but here I am again
An addict to poetry destined for rehabilitation
In distant cruel word processing centers

Just like you, here I am again, not stopping
My fingers always wanting to type the words
My mind always listening
my heart always mouthing
Words, words, words, these words
This poem

This poem is born and I am its tributary
I am this poet now without a face without a name
I am but a mouth, fingers to my hand
Always not stopping, how can I tell you why?

When I myself, do not really know. I am this poem
With an unknown author, I am this poem just written
Taking shape like a candle lighting,
Flowing from your thoughts
Taking the forms of beings unknown to us
We claim we understand we claim we can live with
You are now lost asking the way
You could have done other things than reading this poem

Precisely this is what I really feel. Do you feel it now?
Yes.

At new low ebb

She took and sunk me to low ebb
I was entangled in monster’s web
I had no easy route to escape
I was unable to think or give shape

There may be many ups and down
People may show discourtesy and frown
You may be reduced to nothing and work as pawn
You may be crushed like grass in the lawn

She did not realize simple fact and made all hell
Everything was going ahead with plan and very well
We were leading simple life and good stories to tell
It proved nice all the time and did not face any trail

It was only for on ward march
No going back from the start
It was all for simple asking
Always rousing welcome and no kicking

As it always happen, there starts bad phase
You are down with fame and unable to show the face
You may not be able come out from house and counter
You need to face it bravely with the fear of lashes from hunter

There may be flow of bad words for your action
You may face criticism and solid reaction
No one may blame womenfolk but only man
Why was he not in position to stop or can?

She was string headed woman and couldn’t control tamper
She spoiled the relation with all her anger
It was unbecoming of good couple with good repute
How could I offer any counter or refute?

It was undoing of all my good work
I was feeling uneasy and unable to eat with pork
It was proving difficult to much to my discomfort
My ship was at mid sea waiting call at ports

It is not good for us to survive
Hostility may end but peace can’t be revived
You may live but without any sweetness or aim
How can we stand against odd and claim?


If you can salvage your ship amidst crisis
It will prove your point without any thesis
You may come to be known as strong contender
As it is not the worth job for the pretender

You got to rise from the ashes
You may have strong wishes
Not all may reach to the shore as fishes
You must come out victorious with fine finish

Lie low but not too low
Bow to Him but not to allow
Think of disaster but not of going down
Seeds may definitely grow if they are sown

Rumination Haj

Caught in an expressive cul-de-sac,
all imagery goes down the tube
iconoclastically, with lack
of space that curves when artists cube,
on a rumination haj,
searching an interior Mecca
thoughts collected as collage,
minimally like a Necker.


David Hadjou reviews John Adams’s Hallelujah Junction (“Music Lessons: A memoir by the composer John Adams is a collage of memory criticism, theory and ruminations on creativity, ” NYT Book Review, October 26,2008) :
Commonly mistaken for a minimalist, Adams has employed the minimalist aesthetic primarily as a point of departure. He recognized fairly early that “minimalism as a governing aesthetic could and would rapidly exhaust itself, ” as he writes here. “Like Cubism in painting, it was a radically new idea, but its reductive worldview would soon leave its practitioners caught in an expressive cul-de-sac.” Adams’s importance as a composer is rooted not so much in his having done anything new, but, rather, in his having done very well the things he has done: operas (“Nixon in China” and “The Death of Klinghoffer, ” both staged by Peter Sellars) , symphonic choral works (“On the Transmigration of Souls, ” an elegy to the victims of the Sept.11 attacks, which won the Pulitzer Prize for music in 2003) , piano pieces and a dozen or so other major compositions of various kinds. His music is minimal in the sense that Adams employs as few materials as necessary, rather than as few as possible, though he strives for and tends to achieve a maximalism of effect. With “Hallelujah Junction, ” Adams has put in prose an argument against the ideology of aesthetic continuum, a case that his music has always articulated eloquently by example. “That particular continuum I found ridiculously exclusive, being founded on a kind of Darwinian view of stylistic evolution, ” he argues. If a composition “didn’t in some way advance the evolution of the language, yielding progress either by a technological innovation or in the increasing complexity of the discourse, it was not even worth discussing.” Who cares? John Adams. And, so, now do we.

Job Networks and Enlightenment Rooms

The unemployed proletariat had just finished with the Centrelink’s rigmarole,
Of paper forms, and signing his name, and all the stuff the unemployed got to do.
Running around doing the paper chase, which is a part of the dole regime.
Next, it was the Job Networks, the employment organization now privatised.
A new dole treadmill for the unemployed, encouraging an attitude highly industrialized.

“Welcome to Job Network” the t.v. monitor said, on a recorded video machine.
“We are a privatized organization for the purpose of getting you into employment.
We are here to help you to find your talents, and potentials, to improve your
Abilities, so that you can re-enter the work force to have a life of independents.
This is far better than being on welfare forever with your dependants”.

The interviewers in the Job Network office were old grannies,
Complete with false colorings and artificial additives.
I’m your case manager, I’m assigned to you, and you are here to sign a contract.
The Job Search And Activities Plan and responsibilities and employment to find.
To ensure you’re meeting your obligations to society not to be in your dole grind”.

The granny said.”Under governmental policies your association with us is for all life.”
Granny continued.“There will be no talk-back, yak-back, smart-back nor fart-back.
If we find you to be deficient in abilities, then you have to do a course of some sort.”
The proletariat looked a bit stunned said. “At my age, late forties, it's a bit late.”
Granny said. “It’s never too late to train.” she did not like his mind’s negative state.

The proletariat said to the false colored granny with artificial additives.
I got a really bum hip, and with it I can't do much, and it seems I can't have a pension.
I’m not 97 per cent dead, nor can I work in a factory any more, it’s quite hopeless.”
Continuing. “I’m 49, over the hill and even at 40 no one is going to hire me any more”.
Granny said. “There’s anti-age-discrimination laws that help’s you in life furthermore.”

The proletariat bemused said. “Funny, I never heard. Daadaa-daatatitit-dududdaada-daaa”
THIS IS THE CHANNEL NINE NEWS, THE MOTORING ORGANIZATION
DISCRIMINATED AGAINST THIS MIDDLE AGED BLOKE FOR A CLERICAL
JOB AND THE ANTI-DISCRIMINATION BOARD IS TAKING ACTION.
FURTHERMORE ITS INTOLERABLE THE UNEMPLOYED CANT HAVE TRACTION.

This made grandma very angry, and she looked at the proletariat with contempt.
And said that the proletariat didn't want to work and had a severe attitude problem.
Grandma said it was about time to do a attitude course against negative attitudes.
It was being held in the same building in the “Enlightenment Room” for all dolies.
Grandma said it’s about time that the proletariats guard against their follies.

“Follies? ? I don’t think I have attitudes nor follies” The proletariat said, and continued.
I lost my job due to imports from India, how can I possibly find work if Australia
Imports everything in untold billions of dollars worth of imported goods.
Further more, Australia has call centres and “IT” jobs in India, sucking all jobs out
Of Australia, so how could I possibly find work, faaarout.

Grandma was starting to become impatient with this proletariat smart arse.
“We have anti-discrimination laws against what you’re saying.”
The proletariat was becoming exasperated with the artificially colored grandma.
“Since we import indiscriminately from all countries around the world relentlessly
I can't see how I’m discriminating against any country, we still import tremendously.

“Right! ” Grandma said. “I’m fed up with your negative attitudes, it is obvious to me.
You do not understand the governments Micro-Macro Economical Reforms,
Nor industrial Labour Reforms, that has been done in recent years to better your life.
You sign your contract or else we will breach you, and then you’ll be on the street.
Also you’ll do this attitude course in the “Enlightenment Room” move your feet! ”

Stealth Draft?

To all men & women ages 18-25
DOD Directive 1404.10 is signed
Military Draft stealthily revived
Youth support of war redefined

ROTMS

Read the Directive below very carefully and decide for yourself.

******************************** ******************

Department of Defense
DIRECTIVE
NUMBER 1404.10
23 January 2009
USD(P&R)
SUBJECT: DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce
References: See Enclosure 1
1. PURPOSE. This Directive:
a. Reissues DoD Directive (DoDD) 1404.10 (Reference (a)) under a new title to establish the
policy through which an appropriately sized subset of the DoD civilian workforce is preidentified
to be organized, trained, and equipped in a manner that facilitates the use of their
capabilities for operational requirements. These requirements are typically away from the
normal work locations of DoD civilians, or in situations where other civilians may be evacuated
to assist military forces where the use of DoD civilians is appropriate. These employees shall be
collectively known as the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce. Members of the DoD
Civilian Expeditionary Workforce shall be organized, trained, cleared, equipped, and ready to
deploy in support of combat operations by the military; contingencies; emergency operations;
humanitarian missions; disaster relief; restoration of order; drug interdiction; and stability
operations of the Department of Defense in accordance with DoDD 3000.05 (Reference (b)) .
b. Updates policies and responsibilities for the designation of part of the DoD Civilian
Expeditionary Workforce using the existing category of Emergency-Essential (E-E) civilian
employee positions, and establishes policies and responsibilities for the designation of part of the
DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce using new categories of Non-Combat Essential (NCE)
positions and Capability-Based Volunteers (CBVs) employees and former DoD employees. All
four categories make up the newly designated DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce.
c. Supersedes any conflicting portions of other DoD issuances. Such instances shall be
identified by the Heads of the DoD Components to the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel
and Readiness (USD(P&R)) .
2. APPLICABILITY. This Directive applies to:
DoDD 1404.10,23 January 2009
2
a. OSD, the Military Departments, the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
and the Joint Staff, the Combatant Commands, the Office of the Inspector General of the
Department of Defense, the Defense Agencies, the DoD Field Activities, and all other
organizational entities within the Department of Defense (hereafter referred to collectively as the
“DoD Components”) .
b. All appropriated and non-appropriated fund positions and DoD civilian employees of the
DoD Components. Excludes dual status National Guard and Reserve Technicians and contractor
employees.
3. DEFINITIONS. See Glossary.
4. POLICY. It is DoD policy to:
a. Rely on a mix of capable military members and DoD civilian employees to meet DoD
global national security mission requirements. DoD civilian employees are an integral part of
the Total Force. They serve in a variety of positions, provide essential capabilities and, where
appropriate for civilians to do so, support mission requirements such as combat, contingencies,
emergency operations; humanitarian and civic assistance activities; disaster relief; restoration of
order; drug interdiction; and stability operations of the Department of Defense, herein
collectively referred to as “expeditionary requirements.”
b. Identify a subset of the DoD civilian workforce as the DoD Civilian Expeditionary
Workforce. These civilian employees are organized, ready, trained, cleared, and equipped in a
manner that enhances their availability to mobilize and respond urgently to expeditionary
requirements. As practicable,
(1) To support workforce stability and deployment predictability, the timeframes during
which the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce is susceptible to expeditionary assignments
will be designated in 6-month rotational periods. Tours will be determined through collaboration
of the combatant commanders, career field managers, functional community managers, and
civilian employees, as applicable. The portion of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce
that is within the 6-month window of deployment susceptibility shall maintain full preparedness
as trained, cleared, and ready.
(2) Individual deployment tours shall not exceed 2 years. Consecutive deployments
should generally not be approved without at least a 90-day period of reintegration between
deployments and assurance that medical clearance requirements are met.
c. Integrate DoD civilian workforce capabilities into DoD Total Force planning processes.
(1) Civilian manpower requirements shall be sourced and designated consistent with the
manpower policy and procedures in DoD Instruction (DoDI) 1100.22 (Reference (c)) .
DoDD 1404.10,23 January 2009
3
(2) DoD civilian employees shall be included in the DoD Global Force Management
process as set forth in the Strategic Planning Guidance (Reference (d)) . Global Force
Management Board recommendations and decisions and Global Force Allocation Management
Plans shall reflect designation of DoD civilian employees as the preferred sourcing solution
when appropriate for non-warfighting Combatant Command request for forces and requests for
capabilities, and Joint Individual Augmentation requirements on Combatant Command Joint
Manning Documents for recurring and emergent mission requirements.
d. Designate and annually review the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce that will be
coded as:
(1) Emergency Essential (E-E) . A position-based designation to support the success of
combat operations or the availability of combat-essential systems in accordance with section
1580 of title 10, United States Code (U.S.C.) (Reference (e)) and will be designated as Key in
accordance with paragraph 4.d.(5) .
(2) Non-Combat Essential (NCE) . A position-based designation to support the
expeditionary requirements in other than combat or combat support situations and will be
designated as Key in accordance with paragraph 4.d.(5) .
(3) Capability-Based Volunteer (CBV) . An employee who may be asked to volunteer
for deployment, to remain behind after other civilians have evacuated, or to backfill other DoD
civilians who have deployed to meet expeditionary requirements in order to ensure that critical
expeditionary requirements that may fall outside or within the scope of an individual’s position
are fulfilled.
(4) Capability-Based Former Employee Volunteer Corps. A collective group of former
(including retired) DoD civilian employees who have agreed to be listed in a database as
individuals who may be interested in returning to Federal service as a time-limited employee to
serve expeditionary requirements or who can backfill for those serving other expeditionary
requirements. When these individuals are re-employed, they shall be deemed CBV employees.
(5) Key Employees. DoD civilian employees in positions designated as E-E and/or NCE
will be designated Key in accordance with DoDD 1200.7 (Reference (f)) .
e. Notify applicants and DoD civilian employees when positions are designated E-E and/or
NCE as part of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce.
(1) DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce positions should be pre-identified whenever
practicable.
(a) Vacant E-E and NCE Positions. Applicants must sign the DD Form 2365, “DoD
Civilian Expeditionary Workforce Agreement – Position Based, ” as a condition of employment.
Job announcements and positions descriptions for such positions must contain a statement that
the position is designated as E-E or NCE, that it is part of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary
Workforce, and that a signature of the form is a condition of employment.
DoDD 1404.10,23 January 2009
4
(b) Encumbered Positions. Management must give DoD civilian employees whose
positions are identified as E-E or NCE as much notice as possible (generally not less than 90
calendar days advance notice of the E-E or NCE designation) . The incumbents shall be asked to
accept the new designation of the position as an E-E and/or NCE position, and if he or she does
so, he or she will be required to sign the DD Form 2365 as a condition of continued employment.
If an incumbent employee is unable or unwilling to accept such requirements, then every effort
will be undertaken to reassign the employee to a different position (including a vacant position)
if reasonably practicable, consistent with the needs of the DoD mission and approval of
management.
(2) DoD civilian employees in E-E or NCE positions may be directed to accept
deployment requirements of the position. However, whenever possible, the DoD Civilian
Expeditionary Workforce will be asked to serve expeditionary requirements voluntarily.
Management retains the authority to direct and assign civilian employees, either voluntarily,
involuntarily, or on an unexpected basis to accomplish the DoD mission.
(3) CBVs agree to list their capabilities and skills in a database established by this
Directive so that when an expeditionary requirement exists for a civilian employee with such
skills, the employee can be contacted and asked to volunteer for such an assignment. There is no
penalty for not agreeing to volunteer when asked to serve a specific expeditionary requirement.
To ensure that CBVs are aware of the voluntary nature of their potential service and the
readiness requirements, CBVs must sign a DD Form 2365-1, “DoD Civilian Expeditionary
Workforce Agreement – CBV, ” when they first agree to be listed in the database. CBVs will
receive training only after they sign this agreement.
(4) CBVs for the Defense Intelligence Components will be included in a classified
Intelligence Community-wide database. USD(I) will establish a policy and process for access to
the classified database to ensure that qualified DoD IC employees are considered for
expeditionary assignments.
f. Utilize the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce to meet expeditionary requirements
within their employing Component and across the Department of Defense as directed by an
authorized official (see Enclosure 2, paragraph 1.b.) whenever it is appropriate to use civilian
employees in support of the military to meet those expeditionary requirements.
g. Establish metrics to measure and assess on a regular basis DoD Civilian Expeditionary
Workforce readiness, to be known as the Expeditionary Workforce Deployment Index (DI) and
Readiness Index (RI) based on the following factors:
(1) Employee Capabilities. Ensure DoD civilian employees have the related
competencies, skills, abilities, medical, and psychological fitness to be successful in high
pressure and austere operational environments; ability to work as part of an integrated team
including military, contractor, Federal civilian, and foreign national personnel; a record of
successful job performance to deliver results; and the highest professional and ethical behavior to
maintain a deployment environment characterized by good order, discipline, and conduct.
DoDD 1404.10,23 January 2009
5
(2) Training. Train, develop, and prepare civilian employees who are part of the DoD
Civilian Expeditionary Workforce to meet expeditionary requirements and foreseeable risks they
are likely to face in the theater of operations in accordance with DoDD 1400.31 (Reference (g)) ,
DoDI 1400.32 (Reference (h)) , and DoDD 1322.18 (Reference (i)) . Training shall consist of:
(a) Initial orientation upon becoming part of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary
Workforce, annual refresher training, pre-deployment (including theater-specific) training, as
well as on the job training, and post-deployment reintegration training, as appropriate and
practicable.
(b) Training on the use of any required specialized equipment needed for their
specific missions such as vehicles and communication systems.
(c) Counseling on their legal status under the Uniform Code of Military Justice
(Reference (j)) in accordance with Public Law 109-364 (2006) (Reference (k)) , the Military
Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act under DoDI 5525.11 (Reference (l)) , Secretary of Defense
Memorandum (Reference (m)) , and implementing regulations.
(d) Training in obtaining medical treatment and the related validating and
administrative processing for those who have responsibilities for supporting wounded and
injured civilians.
(e) Elements from the National Security Professional (NSP) training course to be
selected based on relevance to DoD civilian expeditionary requirements and duties.
(f) Training for DoD civilian employees, supervisors, and managers on recognizing
stress-related conditions that may result from serving expeditionary requirements.
(3) Medical and Psychological Fitness. The Department of Defense takes seriously the
need to protect the health of deployed DoD civilian employees and to medically assess DoD
civilian employees who serve expeditionary requirements.
(a) All DoD civilian employees who encumber an E-E or NCE position are required
to have an annual health assessment to determine whether the employee is available for
worldwide deployment. DoD civilian employees designated as CBVs and former DoD
employees will undergo a health assessment to determine whether they can meet a specific
expeditionary requirement.
(b) Force health protection pre- and post-health assessments shall be conducted for
DoD civilian employees in accordance with DoDI 6490.03 (Reference (n)) . Health assessment

patients through the Military Health System shall be used to track DoD civilian employees
injured in theater while forward deployed. Civilians will not be charged personal leave while
undergoing therapy and/or rehabilitation due to a combat, combat support, duty related or
non-duty related injury incurred during deployment after they return from deployment.
(e) Deployed DoD civilian employees who were treated in theater continue to be
eligible for treatment in an MTF or civilian medical facility for compensable illnesses, diseases,
wounds, or injuries under the Department of Labor Office of Workers’ Compensation Program
(DOL OWCP) (Reference (p)) upon their return at no cost to the civilian employee. DoD
civilian employees who deployed and are subsequently determined to have compensable
illnesses, diseases, wounds, or injuries under the DOL OWCP programs also are eligible for
treatment in an MTF or civilian sector medical facility at no cost to the civilian employee.
(4) Administrative Preparedness. The employing DoD Component shall provide the
employees of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce with a valid Official Passport,
Common Access Card, Geneva Conventions Identification Card, and required security
clearances, when appropriate. DoD civilian employees who are part of the DoD Civilian

deployment. There shall be no retaliation because of an employee’s expression of interest in
serving an expeditionary requirement or because of such service. This includes threats or denial
of rights to return to pre-deployment positions, promotions, training opportunities, or other
career enhancing opportunities.
(2) DoD civilian employees shall be treated with high regard as an indication of the
Department’s respect for those who serve expeditionary requirements. Their service and
experience shall be valued, respected, and recognized as career enhancing.
