Blue Angels arrive in California for winter training From Blue Angels Public Affairs

NAF EL CENTRO, Calif. – U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the BlueAngels, made its annual deployment to Naval Air Facility (NAF) El Centro in California to prepare for the upcoming show season, Jan. 2. “For the last 49 years, NAF El Centro and the Imperial Valley have been the winter training home of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels,” said Capt. William S. Doster, commanding office, NAF El Centro. “Everyone is looking forward to the (stay) of the new team this year and helping to celebrate their 70th anniversary.” The 10-week winter training concludes in early March after the team completes 120 flights during a rigorous flight schedule. The weather conditions of the Imperial Valley are optimal for the amount of flights the team is required to complete.

“We are eager to begin training for our 70th season of putting on world class demonstrations,” said Lt. Ryan Chamberlain, Blue Angels lead solo pilot. “There is no better place than our second home in El Centro.” The team performs its first public flight demonstration of 2016 at NAF El Centro, March 12. The mission of the Blue Angels is to showcase the pride and professionalism of the United States Navy and Marine Corps by inspiring a culture of excellence and service to country through flight demonstrations and community outreach. In 2016, the Blue Angels will celebrate their 70th anniversary. Visit the Blue Angels website at www.blueangels.navy.mil to view the 2016 air show season schedule, or for more information, contact the Blue Angels public affairs office at bapao@navy.mil.

Museum’s IMAX theater undergoing major renovations From Katie King EW Bullock Associates

Fans of the IMAX® films shown daily at the National Naval Aviation Museum have something to look forward to this spring. The Naval Aviation Memorial Theatre is undergoing an extensive renovation, its first

major upgrade in nearly 20 years. The theater will be fully converted from film to digital and construction is expected to last through March. The upgraded theatre will feature a premium laser-illuminated 2D

projection system boasting full 4K resolution – nearly 9 million pixels on screen. It will be the first of its kind installed in an institutional theater in the world, and will have the capability of showing Hollywood feature films.

“The conversion of our theatre from film to D3Ds digital laser projection system will improve the quality of the programs we can offer and enhance the experience of our nearly one million visitors annually,” said Lt. Gen. Duane D. Thiessen, president and CEO of the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation.

The new theater will be fully ADA compliant and will feature LED lighting, wider seating with armrests, double cup-holders and custom tables between most seats, new carpeting and a rubberized flooring. The lobby will also receive a facelift and new

Instead of just having a typical New Year’s resolution to lose a few pounds, why not try and achieve happiness, joy and good emotional health in 2016? The good news is that you don’t have to work alone to achieve these goals. Integrated behavioral health consultants are available for support and to help you. Integrated behavioral health consultants are normally clinical social workers or psychologists who work with beneficiaries enrolled to a Medical Home Port Team. They are doing what they love and know best, which is helping and providing support to those who deserve and need it. This includes active-duty service members, retirees and family members. In my opinion, military social work is an unselfish act that is devoted to the welfare of others, and I am very proud to be part of that devotion. Working in behavioral health

fits me well and is a gratifying experience. As an integrated behavioral health consultant, I am committed to my patients and continuously devote as much time as needed to ensure that every patient that walks through the door is satisfied with the overall care they receive. The values of behavioral health services result in improvement to overall health and

well-being, personnel retention, increased camaraderie and healthy behaviors that will help our beneficiaries be successful in any environment. I care very much for the population I serve at the Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) aboard NAS Pensacola because they

NASP Airmen support outreach program for youth at Tuskegee event Story, photo by A1C Alexa Culbert

MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. – The Air Force supported the cultivation of a diverse force by taking part in the Legacy Flight Academy’s “Eyes Above the Horizon” program Dec. 5 at the Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site Museum in Tuskegee, Ala. The Eyes Above the Horizon is an outreach program that familiarizes underrepresented youth from the ages of 11-18 with careers in aviation while teaching the history of the Tuskegee Airmen. The event fits into the Air Forces’ diversity and inclusion focus that was discussed in a recent memorandum that went out to Airmen from Secretary of the Air Force Deborah James, Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Mark Welsh III and Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Cody: “As Airmen, whether military or civilian, we must continue to build and maintain our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and the associated prom-

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins 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,

Col. Edwin McCain, detachment commander. During the event, the cadets had the chance to become mentors themselves. They shared their experiences of being in a senior ROTC program in college with the approximately 60 youth that attended.

been trying to address the issue for years, but recently his group commander challenged them to seek solutions at their level. Airmen from the 479th Flying Training Group (FTG), the 455th FTS and the 451st FTS decided to accept the challenge and do their part to help diversify the Air Force by participating in the Eyes Above the Horizon program in Tuskegee. “We hope to see a number of these youth test the waters with Junior ROTC programs in their schools and eventually apply to Air Force ROTC or the U.S. Air Force Academy ... Hopefully, the memories of the event will plant seeds of future possibilities,” said Creal. During the event, participants learned about the rich legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen and their triumphs and tribulations with a tour of the Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site Museum. The day also involved a military career discussion, which featured a 479th FTG mission brief and ground school, where basic flight and aerodynamic princiIMAX from page 1

The theater will also be energy efficient, using an LED dimming system that will reduce electrical energy consumption by 80 percent. “This conversion allows us to take a 20-year-old theater and make it relevant for the next 20 years. This is win-win for us,” Thiessen added. The Naval Aviation Museum Foundation’s own flagship film, “The Magic of Flight,” which first premiered Nov. 7, 1996, will be converted to the new 4K digital format for exhibition when the theater reopens. The decommissioning of old IMAX® equipment and renovation work is expected to last through March. The museum is scheduled to reopen the theater in March with a grand opening ceremony.

Six hours of silence turns out to be right treatment By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I

talk too much. I’m the kind of person who has to fill awkward silences. Who can’t tell a story without all of the excruciating details. Who chats endlessly at base social gatherings, then wakes up the next morning, slaps her forehead and says, “Me and my big mouth.” I’m not exactly sure why I’m this way, but considering that every human personality trait from narcissism to Oedipus complex has its roots in childhood, I’m guessing that is when it all started. My father, who was shipped off to Fork Union Military School at the tender age of seven, was determined to be a more “hands-on” parent than his own. If my brother or I disobeyed my father, he simply selected from a variety of corporal punishments that were considered perfectly appropriate, if not advisable, in the 1970s. No one would have batted a powder-blue frosted eyelid back then if a parent gave his child a whack on the tush for saying that she did

not walk the dog because she was in the middle of a particularly riveting episode of “Diff’rent Strokes,” or if she called her brother a “ginormous butt-face” while in line at Mister Donut. Our father also selected from the myriad of non-corporal punishments such as sitting at the table until you finish every last bite of that succotash, grounding you for coming home 20 minutes after mom rang the bell, and knocking on the neighbor’s door to confess that you dug for worms in her front lawn. But there was one form of punishment that I considered worse than any other. It was the dreaded “silent treatment.” When my father would re-

She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. fuse to acknowledge my presence for a period of hours or days, I had time to ponder the offense for which I was being punished, but also, I had plenty of time to feel regret

for the 37 other things I had screwed up in the past. It was sheer agony. I would have volunteered to walk barefoot over a bed of bumblebees, run through a thicket of thorn bushes or take a carrot peeler to my shins if only my father would just speak to me. Now, as an adult, I can’t stand silence. So, when my Navy husband and I stopped speaking to each other right before a 12-hour drive home from vacation, I found it particularly difficult. We had both had it. He had had it with my extended family who we had been living with in a small North Carolina beach cottage for two weeks, and I had had it with him for having had it with my family. We had gone to bed angry the night before, backs to each other, vowing, “See how she/he likes this – I’m not going to say a word.” The next morning at 6 a.m., we hit the road in silence. The children, oblivious to our temporary marital discourse, slept soundly. Through North Carolina, I sat, arms crossed, staring bitterly out the passenger’s side window. In Virginia, I kept

quiet, comforting myself with a small neck pillow. In Maryland, I dozed off. In Delaware, I couldn’t specifically recall why we stopped talking to each other in the first place. In New Jersey, I just wanted us to be normal again. “Are we going to get something to eat?” I croaked weakly, my vocal cords showing signs of atrophy after six hours of silence. “Yeah, in just a few minutes,” he said, his soft tone indicating that he wanted normalcy too. After hoagies off the Garden State Parkway, we climbed back into our luggage-laden minivan for the remainder of our trip home to Naval Station Newport. In New York, we chatted about the news a little bit. In Connecticut, we were quiet again, only because we were tired. Finally in Rhode Island, it was clear that our silent treatment had been a blessing rather than a punishment. In the absence of words, we had time to have regrets, and to miss each other. And I learned that talking does not always make things better. Sometimes, silence is golden.

As the “Backbone of Naval Aviation,” Naval Air Station Whiting Field has a proud history of training student military aviators to become the best pilots in the world. Training Air Wing Five establishes the foundation of skill and dedication that is necessary for each officer/aviator to succeed. As they transition to more advanced helicopters, jets or propeller-driven aircraft, a few select individuals may eventually find themselves in a pipeline that is, literally, out of this world. Military pilots are an important source of NASA astronauts, and more than a few who had “The Right Stuff” have been trained at NAS Whiting Field. This is the first in a series of three stories to focus on the NAS Whiting Field aviators who went on to great careers in the military, in space and beyond.

Astronaut’s journey has roots at Whiting Field By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field PAO

Service as a Navy helicopter pilot preparing for wartime service in Vietnam would appear to be enough excitement for a lifetime, but for retired Capt. Winston E. Scott, it was only the very beginning. Testing the limits of speed first as a helicopter pilot, then later as a jet test pilot, and finally as a NASA astronaut, Scott’s perseverance has taken him where still only a handful of people have been. Scott’s post-Navy career has led him to important posts in higher education and with the Florida state government. However, for him, it all leads back to the foundation established in his first years in the Navy. “People still refer to me as Capt. Scott,” he said. “I am past the days of serving on active duty, but I am still part of the Navy. It is a part of who I am. I am proud of it, and happy to have served. Naval aviation was the smartest thing I ever did.” Florida has been the center of his life. Raised in Miami, Scott attended Florida State University as a dual music and engineering major. Growing up in the 1960s and 1970s, there weren’t many science / technical programs which attracted African-American students. He always maintained an interest in science and engineering while he fostered a passion for music (a passion which remains to this day), so FSU was an easy choice since he could follow both. Unfortunately, at the end of NASA's Apollo pro-

gram, FSU closed down its engineering program while he was a student. After he completed his degree, Scott accepted an opportunity to attend Naval Aviation Officer Candidate School in 1972 in Pensacola and the Navy helped him complete his technical education. He attended flight training at Naval Air Station Whiting Field and earned his Wings of Gold in 1974 as a helicopter pilot. He recalls it as a somewhat difficult time with many people trying to avoid military service while he was actively attempting to join. He also bucked trends as an African-American attempting to become a pilot when that was still a rarity. He only remembers about four or five other AfricanAmerican students attending training at that time. The training was difficult, but Scott feels it was his calling. “Vietnam was primarily a helicopter war and most of the students went helicopters after primary,” he remembered. “I enjoyed it very much. It was a challenge with a non-stop, 247 tempo. I guess I was suited for it, because I felt right at home.” According to Scott, the students were trained as if they were going to Vietnam. Their pace was demanding with a new class starting every week. The dropout rate was very high and he only remembers three out of 21 students in his class completing the training. “The wash-out rate was typically 50 percent or greater,” he said, “but I have fond memories of Whiting. I never once re-

gretted my decision. There were good, professional people there who were providing the best training possible. I am grateful to the Navy and to Whiting Field.” Scott served a four year tour with Helicopter AntiSubmarine Squadron Light 33 (HSL-33) at Naval Air Station North Island in California before making his first career shift – he wanted to start flying jet aircraft. While switching from helicopter to jet aircraft might seem to be a pretty dramatic change, Scott emphasizes that it “wasn’t too difficult.” NAS Whiting Field used the T-28 Trojan aircraft as the primary trainer which was also a preliminary aircraft for jet training. For most of the next 14 years, he flew a variety of jet aircraft including the F-14 Tomcat at NAS Oceana in Virginia; the F/A-18 Hornet at NAS

Jacksonville in Florida; and the A-7 Corsair before he was selected to be the deputy director of the tactical aircraft systems department at the Naval Air Development Center at Warminster, Pa. He continued to fly there as a research and development test and evaluation project pilot. “At Warminster I was triple qualified in the Tomcat, Hornet and the Corsair,” Scott said. “I also got to do a little bit of helo flying in one of our H-53s.” Overall, he accumulated more than 5,000 flight hours in more than 20 different military and civilian aircraft. For a self-professed man who likes to fly “fast and high,” even being a test pilot wasn’t enough. He wanted to go higher still. Scott applied to NASA for the astronaut program in 1992 and was chosen to participate on his first ap-

plication. “I always wanted to be in the scientific end of piloting, and I think that the wealth and breadth of my training helped get me into the program.” He trained for the next four years before finally receiving his first opportunity to go into space Jan. 11, 1996. STS-72 (Space Shuttle Endeavor) was in orbit for nearly nine days performing a variety of experiments, testing projects for the International Space Station (ISS), and retrieving a Japanese satellite. Serving as one of the mission specialists, Scott was chosen to do one of two spacewalks designed to assess materials for the construction of the ISS. He was out there for almost seven hours. “Everybody wants to go outside. It is the best of all worlds,” he emphasized. A little more than a

year and one-half later, he flew again, this time on Columbia. This flight continued ISS tests and conducted some microgravity experiments. Scott’s seven-hour spacewalk helped retrieve a payload item that failed to function properly as well as checking more ISS construction techniques. He retired from the Navy and from NASA two years later with more than 24 days and 14 hours in space. Currently, Scott is the senior vice president for external relations and economic development at Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) in Melbourne, Fla. Everything tends to come full circle, and Scott’s career continues today to be one that promotes educational opportunities through his position with FIT and his guest speaking appearances.

GETTING FIT for 2016

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 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 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,

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.

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 low- or 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

This may help get some items checked off your “to do” list and clear your mind. • Set goals for healthy eating and physical activity. Motivate yourself with fun activities that you can do with others. Physical activity: • Be active every day and make time for physical activity. Work activity into your day, whether by parking farther away from stores to do your holiday shopping or walking around the mall or outdoor shops one full time before you buy anything.

(NAPS) – The new year is a perfect time to focus on family and friends, not food. It’s also an important time to move more and eat better. To help, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, offers the following tips so you can stay fit in 2016: Time management: • Plan and prepare meals and snacks. Shop ahead of time for ingredients. Reach for quick snacks that are healthy, such as whole-grain crackers or veggies with low-fat dip. • Go for a walk after a

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

sities 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.

Training headquarters honors top civilians From Naval Education and Training Command PAO

T

he Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced the selection of the Junior and Senior Civilians of the Quarter (CoQ) for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 at an awards ceremony Dec. 8. Sarah Burnett was selected as the Junior CoQ and Larry Farmer as the senior civilian. Burnett started working at NETC in April of 1981 as a trainee. She now serves as a program analyst and is the coordinator for the Government Commercial Purchase Card (GCPC) program, managing the day-to-day operations. As part of her job she provides guidance to commanding officers and other senior leaders, as well as cardholders and purchase approving officials (AO) on program compliance with DoD and DoN directives. “I am humbled, honored, and at the same time excited to be selected as NETC’s Junior Civilian of the Quarter,” Burnett said. “My job allows me to work in partnership with members of NETC staff as well as Bureau of Naval Personnel (BuPers) commands. The GCPC is the payment method used to purchase goods and services to support the Navy’s mission. We all

work very hard together to ensure our program is the very best by meeting and exceeding all program metrics. Our program is very robust and in this last quarter alone, we processed over 8,000 transactions totaling $7.7 million with zero delinquencies. I constantly strive for excellence in managing my program and my efforts were rewarded this year as I was additionally selected as the Naval Supply Systems Command 2015 Level 5 APC Gold Award winner distinguishing my program as the best in the Navy.” Cmdr. Glenn Dietrick, Burnett’s supervisor, noted how she strives for errorless work. “Sarah works diligently with the AOs to ensure that they are doing everything correctly,” said Dietrick. “She is proactive to eliminate issues before they become problems.” Farmer has served at NETC headquarters, in Norfolk, Va., since 2007 and is the training

program coordinator for the Learning Centers and Training Support Centers. Farmer is responsible for coordinating accession training and student support management. Additionally Farmer coordinates the training requirements, class convening schedules, and training data documentation. “I was surprised and honored by my division’s submission and recognition by the command,” said Farmer. Ann O’Connor, Farmer’s supervisor, noted his tenacity and results focused attitude as some of his many strong points. “Larry is the consummate team member and when required, an outstanding leader,” said O’Connor. “He goes out of his way to help all members of the team and is tireless in his support of others.” Jeff Wells was selected as the Naval Supply Systems Command 2015 Level 4 APC Gold Award winner. He is tasked as the BuPers and NETC agency program coordinator. He works to manage and provide oversight for the Department of the Navy’s Government Commercial Purchase Card (GCPC) Program, providing GCPC oversight to more than 134 BuPers and NETC subordinate commands, ensuring all purchases for supplies, services, and training are executed in accordance to GCPC guidelines. “It was an honor to be se-

Sarah Burnett

lected for the award,” said Wells. “Without the superb leadership I have in NETC Logistics division and the exceptional purchase card personnel in the BuPers and NETC domain, it wouldn’t be possible.” In addition, several staff members were presented with awards for year of service. Paula Bares, a clerk in the administration division, was cited for 25 years of service, while Cynthia Vargas, a safety specialist in the safety division, was honored for 30 years. Marking 35 years of service were Lauren Mate, a branch head in the development planning analysis division; and from the fleet integration, learning and development division, Luis Suarez, a program analyst, Ann O’Connor, the

production management head for supply chain integration, and Frank Topf, a program analyst for learning standards. Greg Stuart, a supervisory program analyst in the Information Technology division, received recognition for 40 years, while Ken Densmore, NETC general counsel, was honored for 45 years. From the NETC Total Force Manpower division, Debra Lloyd received a Superior Civilian Service Award for her accomplishments throughout her career.

Crowds line the street during a Mardi Gras parade in Pensacola. Photo from http://kreweoflafitte.com

By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

Now that Christmas and New Year’s are out of the way, the real party begins. The Wind Creek Pensacola Mardi Gras Kick Off Celebration is scheduled for 5 p.m. today, Jan. 8, in downtown Pensacola. The event, which will feature a second line procession and a community king cake, signals the beginning of a season of masked balls, parades and other revelry. The history of Pensacola’s Mardi Gras goes back to 1874 when the first Knights of Priscus was formed and today’s Mardi Gras krewes are carrying on the tradition. The king of Mardi Gras in Pensacola is still

called Priscus. New Orleans and Mobile, Ala., are Mardi Gras hot spots, but big crowds turn out to catch beads in Pensacola too. Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc. (PMGI), which coordinates local events, recently reported that the main Pensacola parade has been named a top 20 event for February in the Southeast United States by the Southeast Tourism Society for the 13th consecutive year.

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.
