Naval Support Activity Monterey Welcomes Its Regional Commander

By Melinda Larson, NSAM Public Affairs

Rear Adm. Yancy Lindsey, Commander, Navy Region Southwest, looks over plans for a new campus quad area at Naval Support Activity (NSA) Monterey with Commanding Officer Capt. Rich Wiley, Deputy Pete Dausen, and Café Del Monte chef Loveday Camille during a visit to the command, April 6-7. It was his first visit since taking command of the Region in September.

"It is a special treat to visit the installation, to walk the property, talk to the people, and get a good understanding of your priorities," Lindsey told some 15 NSA Monterey program managers during a roundtable discussion.

A former commanding officer of Naval Base Coronado now responsible for 10 Navy installations, Lindsey shared his installation management philosophy with the staff.

"Creativity and innovation bridge the gap between limited resources and the mission. I want you to have the flexibility to achieve your mission by relying on you to set your priorities. Things work better in the Navy when authority aligns with responsibilities," Lindsey said.

Lindsey toured two NSA Monterey sites to observe security operations at entry control points, and material conditions throughout the installation and its Annex complex. Public Works presented a facility project overview at the future site of a campus quad area.

"Make sure you get what you need during the design process," Lindsey advised Chef Loveday Camille as they reviewed the campus quad plans that include changes to the Café Del Monte managed by Camille.

Lindsey's visit also included an office call with the leadership of the command's primary tenant, Naval Postgraduate School President Vice Adm. Ronald A. Route and Provost Steven Lerman.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Stacy Lindsey and Region Command Master Chief Chad Lunsford visited Morale, Welfare and Recreation facilities, Navy Gateway Inns and Suites, the Navy Exchange and Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) facilities.

As the Naval shore installation management headquarters for the Southwest region (California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico), Navy Region Southwest provides coordination of base operating support functions for operating forces throughout the region. This includes providing expertise in areas such as housing, environmental, security, family services, port services, air services, bachelor quarters, supply, medical and logistical concerns for the hundreds of thousands of active-duty, reserve and retired military members in the region.
