Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC) was named a winner and Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) and Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit (CNATTU) Whidbey Island were named honorable mentions for the 2016 Navy Community Service Environmental Stewardship Flagship Award Dec. 20. NASC was selected as the Small Shore Command winner, NATTC as the Large Shore Command Honorable Mention and CNATTU Whidbey Island as the Small Shore Command Honorable Mention. The awards program highlights commands that exhibit strong commitment to environmental stewardship via volunteer service projects. NATTC Commanding Officer Capt. Hugh Rankin said the measures the com-

mand takes in educating the hundreds of staff and thousands of students contributed to the aviation technical training schoolhouse’s continued success. “NATTC’s Environmental Stewardship Program is a command emphasized activity advocated from every leadership position and department,” he said. “We identify, address and participate in volunteer opportunities involving Pensacola’s environmental organizations while promoting environmental awareness throughout NATTC and the local community.” Rankin said that NATTC volunteers worked with five organizations specializing and caring for local beaches. He added that more than 100 volunteers spent 417 hours to local community beach clean-up projects, citing the more than 1,000 pounds of garbage collected during two NATTC

Rating modernization: Navy leadership brings back rating titles From Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – On Dec. 21, the Navy announced that effective immediately, Sailors may continue to be addressed by their rating titles. Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John Richardson, with the support of Secretary of the Navy (SecNav) Ray Mabus and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Steve Giordano, made the announcement in NavAdmin 283/16.

“Our Navy needs to be a fast-learning organization – that includes Navy leadership,” Richardson wrote in the NavAdmin. “The Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority states that our most junior teammate may have the best idea and that we must be open to capturing that idea. We have learned from you, and so effective immediately, all rating names are restored.” “The SecNav, MCPON and I, along with other Navy leadership, have had the

opportunity to speak with thousands of Sailors during our travels throughout the fleet. The feedback from current and former Sailors has been consistent that there is wide support for the flexibility that the plan offers, but the removal of rating titles was unnecessary and detracted from accomplishing our major goals.” The rating modernization working group will continue its work on the substantive portion of the rating moderniza-

tion effort. “As we looked at rating modernization effort over the past few months, we saw that we could still achieve the positive results we want without changing rating titles right now,” said the Navy’s Chief of Personnel Vice Adm. Robert Burke. “However, modernizing our industrialage personnel system in order to provide Sailors choice and flexibility still remains a priority for us. Our personnel system has not fundamentally changed since the

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,

DFAS advocates switch to e-delivery for tax forms By Katie Lange DoD News, Defense Media Activity

T

he holiday season is over, so now it is time to start thinking about tax prep season. Now is actually a great time to think about switching your tax forms to electronic delivery, and there is an easy way to do it. • Why should you opt-in to e-delivery? The Defense Finance and Accounting Service is urging all of its active-duty and reserve service members, retirees, annuitants and civilian customers to switch their W2 forms, IRS forms 1095-B/C and Leave and Earnings Statements over to electronic delivery instead of paper copies. That way, go-getters who like to file as soon as the New Year rolls in can get access to their forms in the first week of January instead of waiting for them to arrive in their mailbox a month later. Cutting out the hard copies also means your forms are more secure – there is no chance of them being stolen or delivered to someone else. • E-delivery of forms saves time and money. Also, the more people opt-in to edelivery, the less it costs to physically mail tax forms to you. The DFAS doesn’t pick up the tab for those mailings, the DoD does, and

How to submit a commentary

each military service has to pay its share. And if you don’t think that is a big deal, let’s put that into perspective. By the end of 2016, there will have been 2,507,036 wage and tax forms mailed out to members of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps who have not opted-in to e-delivery, according to DFAS stats. Each form costs 60 cents to mail. That is a $1,504,221.60 bill that the services have to pony up. And that number doesn’t even include the LES forms that are sent out from month to month, or the forms that go out to DoD civilians and other beneficiaries. Those numbers weren’t immediately available to calculate, but I think it is safe to say that they would add up to a lot of money that could be put to good use elsewhere – if people opt-in to e-delivery only. Now, if a hard copy is what you need, that is fine. Tax forms like the new 1095-B/C, by default, are mailed due to federal laws and other

regulations. But MyPay gives you the choice to change that. So it’s pretty simple. Not only is switching to e-delivery secure, it saves you time and convenience, and it saves the DoD millions of dollars. • What if the Affordable Care Act changes? There’s been talk of Presidentelect Donald Trump possibly trying to change parts of the Affordable Care Act, so you may be wondering why you should worry about the 1095B/C form. DFAS said that if the ACA is changed or replaced, those forms will likely remain necessary to verify health insurance coverage. • Here is how you can make the e-delivery switch. All DoD employees, both civilian and military, should have access to the DFAS MyPay website (https:// mypay.dfas.mil/myPay.aspx). Once you are logged onto the site, you will be at the main menu. Under the “Taxes” section, click where it says “Turn on/off hard copy of IRS Form 1095.” If the current

1095 delivery method is listed as “electronic only” already, then you are good to go – no action is needed. But if it says “hard copy” or even “electronic and hard copy,” you are given the option to change to electronic only. Click on the “yes” button, then “yes” a second time to confirm it. Think you did this already? Check again. The 1095-B and 1095-C forms were new as of January 2016, so DFAS stats show very few people have opted-in to e-delivery for them yet. Back on the main menu, you can do the same procedure for your W-2. It is listed right above the option for the 1095. Civilian DoD employees should alsoopt-in for the LES forms, which are the records that come out every pay period that are sent to each individual reflecting their earnings, deductions and leave information. Under “Pay Changes” on the MyPay main menu, click where it says “turn on/off hard copy of LES.” Then follow the same procedure as above. And voila – you are done. • Now, help spread the word. Opting in is pretty easy to do, so help the DoD save money, save yourself some time, and even help the environment by cutting down on paper – tell others about it. That includes leaders, who should encourage their military and civilian employees to opt-in.

within Santa Rosa County, and personally met with several families and their children, as well as counselors who work with them. Hendrix travels approximately 350 miles every month to visit these sites. Hendrix also helped orchestrate outreach to fam-

ilies with deployed family members. East Milton and Pea Ridge Elementary hosted a day to honor fathers, where the children could bring their fathers to school. In his Doughnuts for Daddies event, Hendrix found 15 voluntary “fathers” from NAS Whiting Field to stand in place of fathers who were deployed. Both Hendrix and Wuesthoff received a plaque during a command ceremony from NASWF Commanding Officer Capt. Todd A. Bahlau to honor their achievement. “Most of all, they definitely showcase the outcivilian standing workforce we are very fortunate to have at NAS Whiting Field,” Bahlau said.

Water quality team at NAS Whiting Field Earns FDEP award From Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Officer

For the fifth consecutive year, Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s (NASWF) water management team has earned the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s (FDEP) Plant Operations Excellence Award. The competition involves more than just clean and safe water. Criteria to be eligible for the award included quality of water produced, facility operations and maintenance, recordkeeping and reporting, outstanding operation and maintenance practices and customer relations/acceptances of facility performance. NAS Whiting Field competed in the small community category (facilities that serve less than 3,300 people), and the installation has

to maintain exceptional operations in all areas to earn the award. “The award shows that the water on NASWF has a history of excellence,” said Jon

Croci, NASWF water manager. NAS Whiting Field was able to win the award for a fifth time through their implementation of new designs

that aided in water conservation and outstanding operation and maintenance practices. Upgrading the infrastructure to further the efficiency of water delivery

and wells was a big focus this year. NAS Whiting Field’s emphasis on designing energy and water efficient buildings in house will help decrease cost and further adds an emphasis on use of water reductechnologies and tive methodologies in the design phase. Much of the praise for the award goes specifically to the water quality team from EML, the contractor on the base responsible for facilities maintenance. Eddie Wright and Ray Harper, the certified water treatment plant operators, who oversee the water treatment site, are largely responsible for earning the continued recognition. “Winning this award is amazing and really reflects the hard work our water operators and entire staff across the board have put in to reduce water usage around the base,” Croci said.

This year, First City Shakespeare carries on tradition and celebrates with a shortened, raucous production of William Shakespeare’s play, “Twelfth Night,” which was written at the request of Queen Elizabeth I. In the play, characters throw themselves at one another, guzzle wine, make dirty jokes and sing off tune. First City’s production features an all-female cast – four actresses playing eight roles. Today, Jan. 6, and tomorrow, Jan. 7, the fun will begin with a party game and a toast, and then guests will enjoy the show. First City’s version of the play has 12 scenes.

GETTING FIT for 2017

/ / /

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? you can see the finish line in front of you, you’ll 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’s all well and good if you’re already out running that race, but sometimes getting off the couch is the hardest thing to do when you’re 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’s 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’re 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’re at the end of a race, and

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 doesn’t mean you can’t get in shape just because you’re 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 don’t 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’s 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 don’t have time or money to spare, there is good news for you. You don’t need to pay a monthly fee to lose weight and you don’t 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’re 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 isn’t 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’re 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.

From Pensacola Saenger Theatre

The Pensacola Saenger Theatre is starting the year off with a rock ’n’ roll concert, a classic Broadway musical and a popular standup comedian.

of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits. • “Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella”: 7:30 p.m. Jan. 11. Tickets are $78 and $58 (plus applicable service charge). The Tony Award-winning Broadway musical offers a fresh new take on the classic tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess. It combines classic elements – glass slippers, a pumpkin and a beautiful ball – with some surprising twists. In this show, Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. One of Rodgers + Hammerstein’s most popular titles, “Cinderella” was written for television – de-

buting in 1957 starring Julie Andrews. In 2013, the show made its long-overdue Broadway debut. • Kathleen Madigan’s “The Mermaid Lady” standup comedy tour: 8 p.m. Jan. 26. Tickets are $58, $42 and $32 (plus applicable service charge).

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
