A chart of the current organization of the NJNMJC is attached. This scheme reflects the governor’s reactivation authorization. In keeping with the new Joint Headquarters configuration required by NGB, it is recommended that the command be reorganized into Naval Militia and State Guard components operating under the NJNMJC. Manning requirements are reflected for the headquarters component. Specific Division manning requirements will be developed.
Force structure will be defined primarily by assigned missions, approved strength, and available equipment. The organizational structure of the NJNMJC is necessarily confined to a small staff of both NJNM and NJSG personnel for administration. The personnel recruited for this unit come with their own structure. For instance, it is anticipated that a recruiting priority will be Naval Mobile Construction Division 21 at Lakehurst, which will function with its existing organizational structure under NJNMJC tasking. NJNM and the Maritime Division of the State Guard structures are a function of the number of boats assigned. Each vessel will require five crews each containing an OIC/Coxswain (E6-01), Boatswain’s Mate (E4-E6), Engineman (E4-#6), and two Seamen (E3). In addition, a dedicated maintenance staff will be required consisting of ten individuals (E4-W4) for every three boats. Division staffs will be designed to accommodate a complement of 3,000. Aggressive recruiting efforts will be pursued on a voluntary basis to expand the force structure from 475 in Year 1 to 1,205 in Year 3. Current membership is at 160. Due to the cessation of accessions, an additional 130 applications are pending.
