The purpose of the HMX-1 Applicant Screening/Interview Form

The purpose of the HMX-1 Applicant Screening/Interview Form is to determine if the applicant is eligible to receive a Top Secret security clearance, and also meets the criteria set forth by the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) for assignment to Presidential Support Duty (Yankee White Designator). The screening form allows the Commanding Officer to determine, in advance, whether or not an applicant meets the security qualifications for highly restrictive programs. Personnel assigned to HMX-1 who do not meet the security criteria are transferred, which is why filling out the screening form and forwarding it to HMX-1 Security Administration is so vital.

              If found ineligible for security reasons, the applicant will not be assigned to HMX-1, per current Navy, Defense Department, and White House Military Office Directives. Any questions regarding the screening process should be directed to HMX-1 Security Administration (contact info provided below in the “Notes” section).


Note for CSO Applicants: Refer to the guidelines for applicants included on the “Communications (S-6) (/hmx-1/Units/Communications(S6).aspx)” page found under Units.
