The Department of Defense (DoD) recently issued a memorandum for all servicemembers detailing guidance on communication with presidential campaigns. The memorandum outlines the responsibilities and expectations of DoD personnel in support of Presidential transitions, both before and after the election, and encourages all servicemembers to review DoD Directive 1344.10 and the rules that govern their political activities. View the DoD memorandum here. Additional guidance on how DoD Directive 1344.10 affects Sailors is available on the Navy LIVE website.
