Specialty reports may include such summaries as
hospital census data, Naval Reserve drilling units, Navy
and Marine Corps Relief Society activities, annual
historical reports, and student activity reports. The
statistical data for these reports must be generated from
accurate recordkeepinga task that will most likely
originate with you.
ACTIVE DUTY CHAPLAINS REPORTS
Our next area of discussion pertains to your duties
concerning active duty chaplains reports. All active
duty chaplains, temporary active duty chaplains who
have served continuously for more than 90 days, and
inactive duty chaplains who perform regular duties on a
daily or weekly basis are directed by the Chief of
Chaplains to complete this report. The Program
Support Guide, prepared by the Chaplain Resource
Board (CRB), outlines the submission procedures and
provides sample copies of the Active Duty Chaplains
Report, OPNAV 1730/3. These reports are due for the
quarters ending 31 March, 30 June, 30 September, and
The Navy designed this quarterly report for
accountability at all levels within the Chaplain Corps.
Just as every chaplain must take care to complete each
block, each RP should take care to contribute accurate,
precise, and timely statistical conclusions and facts that
will go into this report. Command chaplains should
include in this report the contributions that each RP
brings to a CRP.
A sample of an active duty chaplains report,
OPNAV 1730.3, is shown in figure 1-3. Notice the types
of data that should be included in this report. Some
additional information to be included might be the
number of funerals, memorial services, escort services,
and special worship opportunities and their average
attendance, as well as any other special interest items.
Another area with which you will be concerned are
The hourly and daily systematic
gathering of statistical data is essential to the training of
all RPs. This means you must consider duties, such as
counting heads at various services or noting telephone
calls received as part of your normal routine.
