This notice is provided in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App. 2). With the exception of participants' registration and introduction/welcoming remarks on Monday, June 18, all sessions of the meeting will be devoted to executive sessions that will include discussions and technical examination of information related to biometrics and lightening the load for the individual combat Marine.

App. 2, section 10(d), the Secretary of the Navy has determined in writing that the public interest requires that these sessions of the meetings be closed to the public because they will be concerned with matters listed in 5 U.S.C. section 552b(c)(1) and (4).Start Signature
