NASP achieves SECNAV top energy award By Ens. Lewis Aldridge NASP Public Affairs Office

Naval Air Station (NAS) was recently Pensacola awarded the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) Energy Conservation's top award. The award seeks to applaud Navy ships, installations and squadrons for outstanding accomplishments in the areas of procurement, storage and delivery of energy to naval forces. Access to secure, reliable sources of energy enhances Navy readiness and mission capability. The SECNAV announces the previous period’s award winners during the third quarter of each fiscal year. The winners are authorized to display the SECNAV Energy Conservation Award flag for a period of one year from the announcement date. NAS Pensacola was deemed

to meet the gold level of achievement standards, which indicates a very good to outstanding energy conservation program. In total, 31 bases and installations were determined to meet this benchmark as well. Sabrina Williams, the Installation Energy Manager for NAS Pensacola, was pleased with the accomplishments of her team. “To earn the SECNAV Energy and Water Gold Award, means NAS Pensacola has a very good to outstanding energy program,” Williams said. “This is a great accomplishment for any installation.” The SECNAV Energy Conservation award was established to recognize and promote excellence in energy management and energy conservation within the Department of the Navy. These efficiency efforts are integral to the development of war fighting capabilities, which result in

choices for the operational commanders. With this accomplishment, Williams feels NAS Pensacola will continue to grow and improve with regards to energy conservation. “Moving forward, NAS Pensacola will continue to plan, program and implement energy projects to

improve our facilities,” Williams said. “In addition, the installation will continue to promote energy awareness and encourage all commands onboard the base to embrace an energy culture.” NAS Pensacola, situated in Escambia County, employs more than 16,000 military and

7,400 civilian personnel. This includes major tenant commands: Naval Aviation Schools Command, Naval Air Technical Training Center, Marine Aviation Training Support Group 21 and 23, the Blue Angels, and the headquarters for Naval Education and Training Command.

Corry Station instructor assumes command of Pensacola Sea Cadets Courtesy story from Center for Information Warfare Training

An instructor from Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station became the commanding officer of the Naval Sea Cadets Independence Squadron during a change of command ceremony onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP), Dec. 16. CW04 Kevin Schneider relieved Lt. j.g. Larry Martin. Until now, Schneider has been an active volunteer for the Sea Cadets. With his new position, he will have greater responsibility for prepar-

ing the Sea Cadets for possible future naval careers. The change of command followed a Wreaths Across America ceremony, where Cadets had the opportunity to honor fallen veterans with wreaths placed on their headstones. “I have been with the Sea Cadets for about 9 months now,” said IT1 James McGuigan, a volunteer from IWTC Corry Station. “I think this is really awesome program that gives the kids a chance to see what the Navy is

about. I really enjoy helping out and mentoring the cadets.” Following the ceremony, many Cadets were awarded ribbons for outstanding achievements in areas such as academics, volunteer and community service, as well as Cadet of the Month to recognize those who stood out amongst their peers. Many of the Cadets also promoted to the next paygrade as they met the required milestone achievements for advancement. See IWTC on page 2

The chief of naval personnel announced via NAVADMIN 299/17 Dec. 19, the next iteration of Full Speed Ahead (FSA) training for 2018 that expands on existing efforts to prevent destructive behaviors across the fleet. Full Speed Ahead 2.0 (FSA 2.0) “Got Your 6” training continues the conversation on key themes from the 2017 FSA training and further reinforces expectations for appropriate social media conduct. FSA 2.0 blends scenariobased videos with small group face-to-face, respectful and collaborative, discussions led by a single certified command facilitator (CF). The training will challenge each Sailor to hon-

estly assess personal, interpersonal and social media character and conduct and to identify specific opportunities for personal individual and organizational growth and betterment. To maximize the advantage of the small group experience, CFs will conduct the training with no more than 30 personnel, including members of mixed paygrades to encourage open, frank dialogue up and down the chain of command. Because FSA 2.0 encourages Sailors to take responsibility for their contributions to Navy culture and to re-commit to themselves and each other, the course is designed to be conducted in organic units, such as work centers, divisions, watch teams or departments, as See FSA on page 2

Commentary by Craig Lewis Chief, Fire Prevention Bureau

Welcome to 2018. It is a new year and I would like to take a short amount of your time to cover 911. This past year and especially the month of December, we had many emergency calls going to phones other than 911. We had natural gas leaks, smell of electrical burning and people trapped in the elevator called into the regional or local call center and trouble desk. Calls such are these are emergency calls and have to be called into the 911 Regional Dispatch Center, not the call centers or even

the Fire Department Admin Line. In the event of an emergency, call 911. As a reminder, if you call from your cell phone your call will go to Escambia County 911; advise them you are onboard NAS Pensacola, Corry Station or Saufley Field and they will transfer you to the Regional Dispatch Center. Once speaking to the Regional Dispatch Center, give them all the information about your emergency. If you are calling from a base telephone it will go directly to the Regional Call Center. Any time you have an emergency whether it is medical, fire or police, immediately call 911.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

The real truth about New Year’s Eve

During my youth, my best offer on many New Year’s Eves was babysitting. My night included sampling the family’s leftover holiday treats and counting down with Dick Clark after the kids went to bed. Despite my pathetic circumstances, I held out hope that, as soon as my social standing improved, I would have many fabulous, sparkling, whirlwind New Year’s Eve parties in my future. Little did I know then, nibbling stale cookies and watching the ball drop on television is about as good as it gets. It took many years of dashed hopes for me to wise up, so let me spare those of you still blinded by visions of grandeur any further disappointment: New Year’s Eve is not all it is cracked up to be. When you are young, you believe that New Year’s Eve is an exciting night of unknown possibilities. Will you attend a party? Pack into a nightclub? Hang with a wild group of friends? If single, you wonder who

might show up. A crush? An ex? Or possibly a new prospect? Could old passions be rekindled? Would new romance be sparked? You shop in advance for something with a little sparkle, something that might show some skin, something that you would look good in if dancing breaks out. You want your hair to shine, your pulse points to smell perfumed and your lips to look smooch-able. You envision yourself mingling with fun, attractive people. The conversation flows with the bubbly. You throw your head back and laugh like they do in wine commercials. Your hair swishes and your bracelets jingle. The night is filled the kind of music that compels you to spring to your feet. You swing your hair in loop-de-loops just for laughs. Droplets of sweat glisten on your neck as you and your friends jump in unison to the beat. Midnight comes unexpectedly, and everyone scrambles to turn down the music, fill glasses for

toasting and moisten lips for kissing. After counting down in unison, balloons are released, glitter infuses the air and everyone embraces in joyous celebration of the beginning of another exciting new year… That is the impossible dream. But here is the reality of many New Year’s Eves: Dec. 31 rolls around,

and you prepare for a gettogether between friends who had nothing better to do. Thanks to holiday spiral hams, cheese balls, cups of eggnog, breakfast casseroles and countless cookies, you abandon the form-fitting outfit you had planned. You opt, instead, for a roomy sweater and pants with a forgiving waistband. You gather with friends and after chit-chat holiday food appears. Despite swearing off overeating several days ago, you can not resist filling your plate with meatballs, spinach dip and pecan tarts. The host’s music list includes a sedative mix of classic rock. Although you all break out singing “Don’t stop believing!” when Journey comes on and a friend does a sad pelvic gyration to “Roxanne,” dancing never really takes off. With a full belly, a toe tap is all you can muster. Time passes, and someone muffles a yawn. You sneak a peak at your watch and are aghast. “What time is it?” A friend asks.

“Quarter past eight,” you reply, and everyone glances nervously at each other. Four more hours to go. You down another stiff drink while a friend relays excruciating details about her cat’s prolonged struggle with feline distemper. You pretend to check in with the kids on your phone when you are really scrolling through Facebook. You hit the buffet again, just because it is there. Mercifully, a guest offers to shoot off some fireworks and you are grateful for the half hour spent shivering in the driveway while watching him light fire to bottle rockets and roman candles. Back inside, making it to midnight becomes a matter of survival. By the time the host turns the television on, it is all you can do to chant, “… five, four, three, two, one – Happy New Year!” before heading for the door. With a pre-party nap, an elastic waistband and plenty of antacids, you might actually enjoy yourself next New Year’s Eve.

NAS Whiting Field named best small base in the Navy From Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

O

n Dec.18, Commander Naval Installations Command (CNIC) named Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) as the recipient of the Installation Excellence Award. This is the third win over the last four years for NASWF. The award recognizes top Navy commands at shore for their excellence across several categories, including installation management, program excellence, environmental stewardship, mission successes and community outreach. Installations are graded across 13 key areas including: facilities management, mission support, quality of life, environment, energy, property stewardship, communication, safety and health as well as many other categories. Each entry is limited to a four page write-up of accomplishments with supporting documentation and photographs. Commander Navy Region Southeast, Rear Adm. Bette Bo-

livar highlighted this prestigious award and NAS Whiting Field’s successes during Capt. Todd Bahlau’s change of command ceremony Dec. 18. “Mighty Whiting, Team Whiting Field’s dedication and outstanding performance, consistent with CNIC’s strategic goals and Office of the Secretary of Defense criteria, are unparalleled and absolutely worthy of praiseworthy recognition,” Bo-

livar said. “Earning such prestigious recognition is a significant accomplishment and a testament to supporting the fleet, family, fighter and community.” CNIC is the naval command tasked with overseeing the 69 U.S. Navy shore installations worldwide. NAS Whiting Field was selected as the winner in the small base category (less than 500 personnel) from a field of 32 installations.

Commander, Naval Installations Command, Vice Adm. Mary Jackson lauded this year’s winners, underscoring the high level of professionalism evident in each of the nomination packages. “This year’s competition was intense, and it is clear our winners represent the very best of the best within the shore enterprise,” she said. “I want to personally thank each of your superb teams for their stellar work.” NAS Whiting Field’s recognition as the CNIC 2018 Installation of the Year was a culmination of successes across several performance categories; however, the installation’s ability to sustain one of the most dynamic missions in the Navy was without doubt tied to the unparalleled partnership and

collaboration it shares with the community. The long-standing efforts of mission buffering, prevention of incompatible development, execution of grant program initiatives and strong community bonds was absolutely key in NAS Whiting Field’s nomination package and ultimately its selection as the best of the best. “To achieve this honor three of the last four years is amazing and couldn’t be accomplished without the support of the local community,” NASWF Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau emphasized. “The men and women of NAS Whiting Field and the local community have a lot to be proud of as the base has proven again that along with its history of training, it has a legacy of excellence.”

NAS Whiting Field changes co mman d From Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) observed a time-honored Navy tradition Dec. 18 when command of the air station passed from one officer to another. Capt. Paul Bowdich accepted command of NASWF from Capt. Todd Bahlau following Bahlau’s three-year tour at the helm. The change of command ceremony is a Navy tradition that enables two officers to formally exchange duties in front of the assembled military and civilian staff. Commander Navy Region Southeast Rear Adm. Bette Bolivar was the guest speaker for the change of command. Bahlau’s leadership of the installation has had a large impact to support the aviation training mission of Training Air Wing Five. Under his guidance, NASWF provided air traffic control, emergency fire and rescue services, and runway and grounds maintenance to more than 13,000 acres of property and 4,500 nau-

tical square miles of airspace, supporting the safe execution of 415,239 aircraft flight hours, and four million flight evolutions, as well as classroom and simulator training/support for 3,945 student naval aviators.

GETTING FIT for 2018

/ / /

Keep your eyes on the fitness prize From Human Performance Resource Center A DoD initiative under the Force Health Protection and Readiness Program

H

ave you ever wondered how different people’s perceptions of the same thing can be so drastically different? can see the finish line in front of you, you will probably estimate that the finish line is closer to you than it really is. Whether or not the goal is actually closer, believing that it is triggers excitement and effort towards achieving these goals. That is all well and good if you are already out running that race, but sometimes getting off the couch is the hardest thing to do when you are out of shape. Runners who are less fit and less motivated estimate distance to a finish line as being farther than do runners who are fit and more highly motivated. So even if you want to get in shape,

You know it is good for you, and most people should be doing more of it. Yet when asked, some people will say they love to exercise while others see it as an overwhelming and impossible task. Our perceptions say a lot about what we value, how we are feeling and what we desire, which in turn affects motivations, actions and even physical performance. You probably find that the goals that seem more in reach are more desirable (for example, money, food or a finish line) than the ones that seem further away. For example, when you are at the end of a race and you

sometimes your poor fitness can affect your perception of being able to achieve your fitness goals. While negative perceptions might make it harder to get in shape, this does not mean you can not get in shape just because you are less fit. Keep your eyes on the prize. Exercisers who focus on an end goal and ignore the distractions around them

perceive their goal as being nearer and actually perform better; most importantly, they do not consider the exercise as difficult. So, if you see your goals as being closer to you in your mind, you will have something to look forward to. This “prize” could be anything. It could literally be the finish line; it could be the next milestone on your

route, such as the building at the end of the block; or it could even be a post-race reward, such as a healthy post-workout smoothie. Remember, some goals are harder to achieve than others, but you can stay the course by imagining what is coming and keeping the selftalk positive. This will help keep your motivation high and the prize within reach.

No excuses: You can work out without a gym From www.militaryonesource.mil

It is fairly common for a mountain of excuses to stand between people and their fitness goals. Among the most common excuses for postponing exercise are lack of time, lack of money – or both. If you are one of the many people thinking that fitness is just out of reach because you do not have time or money to spare, there is good news for you. You do not need to pay a monthly fee to lose weight and you do not need fancy gym equipment to build muscle. You can get fit simply by using what you have or using lowor no-cost resources and facilities just for military families. If you have a desire to get fit, then you have all the “equipment” you need to reach your goal. Brisk walking and jogging around your neighborhood are great examples of free and convenient exercise. By simply adding one or both of these exercises to your schedule most days each week, you can see a change in your body and an improvement in your mood.

If you are a parent and need to bring your children with you while you walk or jog, push your young children in a stroller or pull them in a wagon. Your older children may enjoy walking or jogging with you or riding their bikes alongside you. If hitting the trails is not for you, there are plenty of other exercise options that you can do anywhere with no equipment, including cardiovascular moves such as jumping jacks, jump squats or high knees. Strength training is possible without equipment too. Moves that use your own body weight to strengthen your muscles, like squats, pushups or sit-ups can build lean muscles without straining your budget with expensive gym membership fees or high-cost equipment. If you happen to have a few basic pieces of equipment around your house, including a jump rope, a pair of hand weights, medicine ball or resistance bands, you can take cardiovascular exercise or strength training to the next level by adding an extra challenge. While these small, generally inexpensive pieces of equipment can help you reach your fitness goals, you can still create a quality

workout without any of this equipment. If you are new to exercise and you need a little guidance, you may find success by following a workout DVD or Internet video. You will find that you have all kinds of options, including workouts of various lengths, target areas, intensities and techniques. Consider your goals before making a purchase or network with friends and family members who may have suggestions or videos you can borrow. For anyone who is not easily self-motivated, exercising without the gym may make it a little too easy to give up on fitness goals. Fortunately for military service members and their families, resources are available at low or no cost to help you reach your goals without straining your budget. Onboard NAS Pensacola, the base’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) department has complete information on fitness and exercise opportunities at http:// naspensacola-mwr.com. With your own determination to succeed, little to no equipment and very little cost – if any, you can get fit, feel great and experience a healthy lifestyle. No more excuses – take the first step toward your fitness goals today.

Navy training recognizes top Sailors, instructors By Ens. Caroline E. Ready Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

N

aval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced the training domain’s 2017 Sailor of the Year (SoY) and Military Instructors of the Year (IoY) Dec. 14 at a ceremony in the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). The 2017 NETC SoY is EM1 Avanese Taylor from Surface Warfare Officers School Engineering Learning Site, Norfolk, Va. The 2017 NETC IoY’s are: • Junior – IS2 Nijah Lee, Information Warfare Training Command Virginia Beach, Va. • Midgrade – CTR1 Francisco Peavy, Information Warfare Training Command Corry Station, Pensacola, Fla. • Senior – AEC Aaron Sly, Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. • Officer – Lt. Christopher DeMatteo, Submarine Learning Facility, Norfolk, Va. Rear Adm. Kyle Cozad, NETC commander, congratulated all the finalists in each category for their roles in shaping the Navy’s future force and for their contributions to the training and education mission. “You represent the best of the very best throughout the domain,” said Cozad. “Each one of you here today has a common theme: a hard work ethic, a drive to be a better leader and team-

work. Each and every one of you is a competitor and that competitive edge is the thing that makes our Navy better than the other navies today.” Taylor has been in the Navy for 11 years and is a department leading petty officer, leading 25 instructors in the enforcement of training standards for more than 1,200 students annually and for the training, implementation and instruction delivery of five courses. Taylor stressed the importance of inspiring Sailors through leading by example and providing them with the knowledge they need to succeed. “I take professional pride in my work and every class that I instruct,” said Taylor. “I believe there is more to instructing than just providing classroom knowledge. I provide my students with information not only to help them in class, but also in their careers.” Taylor will go forward to compete as NETC’s representative in the Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education
