I.2.3a) Whereas the Republic exists in the hearts and minds of its People who live on Vessels, Ships and Seastations each is the Sovereign Territory of the Republic and is entitled to all the rights, duties, responsibilities and privileges as such.

SECTION 3 CITIZEN CAPTAINS, SUBJECT CITIZENS, SUBJECTS, PHILOSOPHY AND LANGUAGE

I.3.1 Citizen Captains are human beings, natural persons who have attained the age of adulthood and who have assumed and accepted the duty and responsibility as Captain of a vessel.

I.3.1a) Whereas one of the youngest people to solo-circumnavigate the earth was Captain Robin Graham who began his voyage at age 16 aboard S/V Dove, the age of 16 is the age of Adulthood,

I.3.1b) Whereas one of the smallest vessels to circumnavigate the earth was S/V Trekka at 20.5’ Captained by John Guzzwell, a Vessel is defined as being 20.5’ or longer at the water line.

I.3.2 Subject Citizens are human beings, natural persons who have attained the age of 21 years, who have assumed and accepted the duty and responsibility as Heads of Households and who dwell on Ships or Seastations.

I.3.2a) The Head of a Household is a natural person who has assumed the duty and responsibility as the Primary Provider for dependent adults and/or children.

I.3.2b) For the purpose of identification, a Ship is defined as a vessel 205’ or longer at the water line.

I.3.2c) For the purpose of identification, a Seastation is defined as a floating platform or structure of at least 43,560 square feet fixed, anchored or otherwise keeping station at a point within the Republic’s Home Territorial Surface, at or about its Extra-Territorial Surfaces.

I.3.3 Subjects are human beings, natural persons who are the dependants of a Citizen Captain, Subject Citizen or Subject of the Republic.

I.3.4 The Basic Philosophy of Citizenship upon which the Oceanic Citizens Republic is based is that the Citizen Captain, having assumed the duty and responsibility of command, is solely responsible for the care, custody, safety and welfare of the human beings aboard his/her vessel. This is an indisputable fact of nature recognized and codified in International Maritime Law and the Laws of Nations and those human beings who have not assumed this duty and responsibility are not qualified too and have no right to affect the absolute right and decision-making authority of those who have. Such human beings are subject to the authority of their Captain and owe their Captain their trust and loyalty even as the Republic is owed their Captain’s trust and loyalty.

I.3.5 Citizen Captains, Subject Citizens and adult Subjects will make the following Affirmation:“I __________________ do solemnly affirm, that I will support and defend the Constitution of the Oceanic Citizens Republic, bearing true faith and allegiance to the same, acknowledging the rights and duties contained therein.”

I.3.6 The English Language is the official language of the Republic.

EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER THREE THE UNIFIED COMMAND PLAN, GENERAL GIDELINES and RECOMMENDATIONS for the OCEANIC CITIZENS REPUBLIC NAVAL MILITIA

EO.III.1 Article II, Section 2.7 and Article III, Section 1.5 of this Constitution provide the basis for the establishment of the Fleets, laws, regulations and procedures regarding qualifications, duties, positions, promotions and discipline within the ranks of the Naval Militia (OCRNM).

EO.III.2 The command of Fleets will be exercised as provided for herein and as otherwise directed by the Admiral Combined Fleet (ACF).

EO.III.2a Communications between the President and the commanders of the Fleets shall be transmitted through the ACF unless otherwise directed.

EO.III.3 The Unified Command Plan (UCP) establishes the missions, responsibilities and force structure for the Fleet Admirals (FAs) and establishes their general geographic Areas of Responsibility (AORs) and functions.

EO.III.4 Except as otherwise directed, all forces operating within the geographic AOR assigned or attached to are under the command of the FA of that command.

EO.III.5 When there is a vacancy in the office of the FA of a Fleet, or in the temporary absence or disability of the FA, the Vice Fleet Admiral (VFA) acts as the FA until a successor is appointed or the absence or disability ceases. If a VFA has not been designated or is also temporarily absent or disabled, interim command shall pass to the next senior officer present for duty eligible to exercise command.

EO.III.6 The FA of a Fleet command, except as otherwise provided for in the UCP, or the President, or by the ACF is responsible for:

EO.III.6a Deterring attacks against the citizens, subjects and property of the Oceanic Citizens Republic employing appropriate force should deterrence fail.

EO.III.6b Carrying out assigned missions and tasks.

EO.III.6c Assigning tasks to, directing and coordinating the Task Forces to ensure unified action in the accomplishment of the assigned missions and tasks.

EO.III.6d Maintaining security of and carrying out force protection responsibilities for the Fleet including assigned or attached Task Forces, Squadrons, Divisions and Sections.

EO.III.6e Certifying the readiness of assigned Task Forces, Squadrons, Divisions, Sections and individual vessels to perform the Fleets assigned missions and tasks.

EO.III.6f Providing, as directed, trained and ready forces to other Fleets as may be necessary in time of War.

EO.III.6g Planning and conducting military security cooperation and assistance activities within the assigned AOR.

EO.III.7 In establishing Fleets, there is no intent of delineate restrictive geographic AORs for accomplishment of missions assigned. FAs may operate forces wherever required to accomplish their missions. Unless otherwise directed by the ACF, when significant operations overlap boundaries, a Special Task Force will be formed. Command of the Special Task Force will be determined by the ACF and assigned to the appropriate FA. Forces directed by the ACF may also conduct operations from or within any geographic area as required for accomplishing assigned tasks, as mutually agreed to by the FAs concerned or as directed by the ACF. To provide a basis for coordination by FAs, intelligence and logistics planning general geographic AORs are delineated in the following paragraphs:

EO.III.7a The 1st Fleet is located in the O.C.R.s Indian Ocean Territory whose boundaries are 30 degrees east, eastern Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, western Sumatra and Java, west and southern Australia to 140 degrees east and Antarctica on the south including the Red Sea and Persian Gulf.

EO.III.7b The 2nd Fleet is located in the O.C.R.s South Atlantic Territory whose boundaries are 70 degrees west, eastern South America north to the equator, western Africa south to 30 degrees east and Antarctica on the south.

EO.III.7c The 3rd Fleet is located in the O.C.R.s North Atlantic Territory whose boundaries are eastern South, Central and North America, Greenland, Western Europe, Western Africa south to the equator including the Arctic Ocean, the Mediterranean and Black Seas.

EO.III.7d The 4th Fleet is located in the O.C.R.s Home Territory whose boundaries are 140 degrees east, eastern Australia, Java and Sumatra, the Mala Peninsula to 10 degrees north, east to western Central America, western South America to 29 degrees south including the Gulf of Thailand.

EO.III.7e The 5th Fleet is located in the O.C.R.s South Pacific Territory whose boundaries are 150 degrees east, north to 29 degrees south, east to South America, south to 70 degrees west and Antarctica on the south.

EO.III.7f The 6th Fleet is located in the O.C.R.s North Pacific Territory whose boundaries are eastern Asia north to Alaska, western North America south to 10 degrees north.

EO.III.8 With regard to the ‘Law of War’ or ‘Law of Armed Conflict (LOAC)’, the United States’ Department of Defense Directive 5100.77 ‘Law of War Program’ of November 5, 1974 requires its Armed Forces to design programs ensuring observance of LOAC to prevent violations, ensure prompt reporting of alleged violations, appropriately trains all forces in LOAC, and complete a legal review of all weapons. LOAC training is a treaty obligation of the United States under provisions of the 1949 Geneva Conventions and should be used as the guiding principles for the OCRNM.

EO.III.9 Regarding regulations specifically dealing with discipline within the ranks of the Naval Militia, the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) is a United States federal law, enacted by Congress and should be used as the guiding principles for the OCRNM.

EO.III.10 That all Citizen Captains are Captains of their individual vessels, ships or Seastations it must be understood that the position of Citizen Captain does not equate to military rank in the OCRNM. While the skills, duties and responsibilities are generally the same in character, there is an inexorable quality of military discipline that fundamentally alters their nature when applied in a military setting. Understanding this, the following schedule is to be observed with regard to initial assignment of duties, positions, promotions, rates and ranks in the OCRNM:

EO.III.10a There are eleven (11) Commissioned Officer Ranks:

O-1 Ensign (EN)

O-2 Lieutenant Junior Grade (LTJG)

O-3 Lieutenant (LT)

O-4 Lieutenant Commander (LCDR)

O-5 Commander (CDR)

O-6 Captain (CPT)

O-7 Commodore (CMDR)

O-8 Vice Fleet Admiral (VFA)

O-9 Fleet Admiral (FA)

O-10 Vice Admiral Combined Fleet (VACF)

O-11 Admiral Combined Fleet (ACF)

EO.III.10b Former Line Officers of the Navy and Coast Guard transfer directly without loss of rank through O-7 Commodore. Officers above O-7 shall be O-7. Non Line Officers and Officers of the Merchant Marine and other branches of service transfer with the loss of one rank but do not drop below O-1 as follows: O-1&2 = O-1, O-3 = O-2, O-4 = O-3 and so on. When the quorum has been reached, Line Officers above O-7, Non Line Officers and Merchant Marine Officers will be at the top of the Promotion Nomination List.

EO.III.10c Former Non Commissioned Officers of the Navy and Coast Guard holding Deck or Hull & Engineering (Sea Going Ratings) transfer as follows: E-5 = O-1, E-6 = O-2, E-7 = O-3 and so on. Non Commissioned Officers holding other Ratings and those of the Merchant Marine and other branches of service transfer with the loss of one rank but do not drop below O-1 as follows: E-5&6 = O-1, E-7 = O-2, E-8 = O-3 and so on. When the quorum has been reached, Navy and Coast Guard Non Commissioned Officers holding other Ratings and Merchant Marine Non Commissioned Officers will be at the top of the Promotion Nomination List.

EO.III.10d Citizens Captains who have never served in the Armed Forces or who did but never became NCOs hold the rate of ‘Non Commissioned Officer, Citizen Captain’. Former members of the Navy, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine or other branches of service who were not NCOs shall hold the rate of ‘Non Commissioned Officer’. All other members of the Militia shall make up the other Enlisted Rates based on Performance Reports, Scores on Standardized Tests, on the Job Training and Leadership Abilities.

EO.III.10e There are six (6) Enlisted Rates:

E-1 Seaman Recruit (SR)

E-2 Seaman Apprentice (SA)

E-3 Seaman (SM)

E-4 Non Commissioned Officer, Junior Grade (NCOJG)

E-5 Non Commissioned Officer (NCO)

E-6 Non Commissioned Officer, Citizen Captain (NCOCC)

EO.III.10f When the quorum has been reached, Officers and Non Commissioned Officer, Citizen Captains to be promoted to fill vacancies will be nominated by their peers of the same Rank/Rate. From this list of nominees, candidates will be selected by a committee of Officers appointed from the gaining Rank. From these Nominated Selectee Candidates, positions will be filled by election of Candidates by the lower Ranks/Rates. Enlisted promotions through E-4 are based on Performance Reports, Scores on Standardized Tests, and On the Job Training to develop Skills and Leadership Abilities. E-5s are promoted based on the above criteria and selection by their Commanding Officer or NCOCC. As can be deduced from the foregoing criteria, neither Higher Formal Education nor any other older established standard opens nor bars the doors toward promotion in the OCRNM. The Oceanic Citizens Republic Naval Militia is to be an Egalitarian Force as far as military discipline and good order will allow.

EO.III.11 ORGANIZATION OF FLEETS

The OCRNM Combined Fleet is commanded by the Admiral Combined Fleet assisted by the Vice Admiral Combined Fleet as adjutant. Each Fleet in the OCRNM Combined Fleet is commanded by a Fleet Admiral assisted by a Vice Fleet Admiral as adjutant. Within each Fleet, in descending order:

Task Forces may be commanded by a Captain or a Commodore.

Squadrons may be commanded by either a Commander or a Captain.

Divisions may be commanded by either a Lieutenant Commander or a Commander.

Sections are commanded by the ranking Officer or NCOCC.

The Section is the basic unit of a Fleet and forms the basis of each organization above it. A Section is composed of two (2) vessels. A Division is composed of at least one (1) Section. A Squadron is composed of two (2) Divisions that should not have more than 12 Sections each.

A Task Force may be small, composed of as little as one Section, or large composed of as many Squadrons as necessary to accomplish its assigned task.

A Fleet may have as many Task Forces as it has vessels to form.

E.O.III.12 UNIFORMS

The militaries of the world, Navies in particular, generally have more uniforms and uniform combinations than are necessary or even practical. The OCRNM shall seek to remedy this situation for its personnel by having as few uniforms as possible. Toward that end there are only two types of uniform: Service Dress and Service.

The Service Dress Uniform consists of a navy blue/black jumper with three rows of white piping on the collar and cuffs, blue straight-leg or bell-bottom trousers with a fly front, blue/black belt with silver tip and buckle, white T shirt, a black polyester neckerchief tied in a square or reef knot, black socks and black leather shoes. The material is generally wool or a wool blend, depending on the vendor. The prescribed headgear is a white "Dixie Cup" cover for males and females. Rate insignia (3” across) is slash marks in silver (E-1/2/3/4) or inverted chevron (E-5) also in silver centered on the upper left arm between the shoulder and elbow. In cold or inclement weather, the over coat or rain coat is authorized.

E.O.III.12c The Service Uniform for Officers, NCOCCs and Enlisted Personnel shall be as follows:
