What is NERE?

NERE recognizes civilian employers who provide outstanding support to Reserve Sailors in their organizations. It is an all-day event including tours of Navy ships, aircraft and facilities. Transportation and lunch are provided for guests. NERE concludes with a dinner reception with the Chief of Navy Reserve and Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command, as well as other flag officers.
