Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Mobile Training Team visits NAS Pensacola Story, photo by Ed Barker NETC PAO

The Southeast region Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Fleet Master Mobile Training Team (MMTT) deployed to Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola to train command teams Dec. 13-14. The SAPR-F training is the latest event in the Navy's aggressive efforts to prevent sexual assaults and promote essential culture changes within the force. The 20 SAPR-F Master Mobile Training Teams (MMTTs) began deploying around the globe in December 2012 to provide SAPR-F Preparation Training to designated mid-level leadership command training teams in fleet concentration areas and locations with significant Navy presence. These command training teams will then deliver the SAPR-F training to their E-6 and below personnel, which must be completed at each command by March 31. The problem of sexual assault can significantly affect command morale. NETC FORCM(AW/SW) April Beldo encouraged command training teams to make sure their Sailors take the SAPR message to heart. “Sexual assault is not only a concern for victims, but also impacts command readiness in many ways. When trust is lost within a command, it is impossible to meet the mission,” said Beldo. “I challenge each and every Sailor to become an advocate that will not tolerate the crime of sexual assault. It’s not just a leadership issue – this has to be implemented at the deckplate level. It is every Sailor’s job to carry this message to their peers and act responsibly.” More than 1,000 face-to-face SAPRF Preparation Training sessions are

scheduled through mid-January, providing training for active and reserve component training teams. Those teams that are deployed and unable to attend a faceto-face training session can receive the training via Defense Connect Online. After command training teams provide the SAPR-F training to their E-6 and below, each command is responsible for documenting completion via the Fleet Training Management Planning System (FLTMPS). Lt. Cmdr. Bert Rice is assigned as team leader for the Southeast Region Master Training Team presenting SAPR-F sessions at NAS Pensacola. “The first training sessions have gone great and we’re getting into a rhythm,” said Rice. “My team has an aggressive schedule of 115 sessions in 45 days, ranging from Panama City, Fla., to Millington, Tenn., to New Orleans; allowing us to see a lot of the fleet. This is time exceptionallywell spent and we are looking forward to delivering the CNO’s message on sexual assault prevention to the southeast region. Our goal is to prepare the command teams to effectively deliver training to the deckplate Sailor.” Sexual assault prevention is an important element of the readiness area of the 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative, which builds resiliency to hone the most combat-effective force in the history of the Department of the Navy. Additional information on the MMTT and SAPR-L training efforts can be found at the SAPR L/F training Web pages, including command registration for SAPR-F training: http://www. public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/support/ sapr/Pages/training.aspx .

Bert Rice and ATCS(AW) Chris Schornik, members of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response – Fleet (SAPR-F) Southeast Region Master Mobile Training Team (MMTT), watch the SAPR-F training video with one of the first classes trained in the region. In the video, a Sailor is inappropriately touched by her leading petty officer (both are portrayed by actors). The SAPR-F MMTTs are deploying across the globe to Navy concentration areas as the latest event in the Navy’s aggressive efforts to prevent sexual assaults and promote essential culture changes within the force. Commands have until March 31 to complete SAPR-F training.

Top legal officials make community outreach visit to NAS Pensacola Sailors get an update on civil rights issues Story, photo by Gretchen DeVuyst PAO Intern

Informing members of the military and veterans of their rights was the goal of a Dec. 10 visit to Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) by a detachment of state and federal legal officials. The group was led by Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division, who has traveled to several bases to conduct educational outreach operations since taking office in 2009. “You have a tremendous amount of rights that exist under the federal civil rights laws and under state laws,” Perez said in a speech to base personnel. “I want to make sure you are aware of them, because a right is not a right if you are unaware of its existence.” Perez said service members must be free to focus on the task at hand, not on financial issues. “Congress knows you have our back here and overseas, and we need to have your back on so many other issues,” he said. Perez said his understanding of the demands of military life is based on personal relationships. His father was in the

Lt. Joel White (right) coordinated the group’s visit to NASP.

Army and other family members also served in the military. “When I do this work, I think not only of all of you and the great service you have performed, but I also think of the service my father and my uncles have performed,” he said. Officials who visited with Perez included Stuart Delery, deputy attorney general for the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division; Pamela Marsh, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of

Florida; and Richard Lawson, director of economic crimes for the Florida Attorney General Office Consumer Fraud Issues. About 30 government employees gathered for a morning meeting with the group. The presentation focused on housing, lending, disability, voting and employment issues. Discussions highlighted some of the tools the Civil Rights Division can use to protect a service

Naval Air Station Jacksonville Sailor earns top medal for heroism By Kaylee LaRocque, NAS Jacksonville PAO

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) – The commander of Navy Region Southeast presented a chief the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for heroism during a ceremony Jan. 3. GSEC(SW) Bryain Williams of Transient Personnel Unit/Pre-Trial Confinement Facility (TPU/PCF) Jacksonville received the prestigious presidential award from Rear Adm. Jack Scorby Jr. Williams for rescuing

4-month-old Jimmy Knight from a burning house May 11, 2010, in Jacksonville, Fla. Williams spoke about those intense minutes as he risked his life to save the young child. “My family and I had gone to the home to look at a dog we were considering adopting. After meeting the dog and his owner, Melinda Knight, we had decided we wanted him. We put him in the car and were leaving when Melinda came running out screaming her house was on fire

and she couldn't find her baby in all the smoke,” said Williams. “I ran into the smokefilled house and located Jimmy in his playpen. I picked him up and found my way back out the front door, handing the infant to my wife. Then I heard Melinda yelling at the back door and went to help. During the confusion, I didn't tell her that I had rescued her son and assumed she had another child inside,” he continued. “So I tried to get in the back door but the flames

Escambia County School District Career Academy Showcase Jan. 24 From Carissa Bergosh School Liaison Officer NAS Pensacola, Corry CDC

Interested in exploring a certain career or learning more about a field of study? The Escambia County School District will have its annual Career Academy Showcase for all middle and high school academy programs. The showcase will be held at Woodham Middle school Jan. 24 at 6 p.m. There will be information on and opportunities to apply for all programs in the school’s gym. Reminder: The deadline to apply for all Middle and High School Career Academy Programs is Feb. 15. For more information visit http:// career. escambia. k12. fl.us/ CareerAcademy/index.a sp or call Carissa Bergosh, School Liaison Officer NASP at 2930322.

From the Escambia County School District website: The School District of Escambia County’s career academies are small learning communities within a high school that focus on a career pathway for a two-, three-, or four-year span. Students enter through a voluntary application process; they must apply and be accepted, with parental knowledge and support. Students in a career academy take a mixture of career (usually one or two) and academic (usually three or four) classes each year. Classes meet entrance requirements for four-year universities. Students develop knowledge in a given industry, and – in most academies – students have opportunities to earn industry certification relevant to the career academy. A student’s senior year may include work experience, paid or unpaid, in the community. Studies have found that students in career academies perform better in high school and are more likely to continue into post-secondary education, compared to similar students in the same schools. Several leading organizations of career academies have agreed on a common standard for academies, and use the following parameters when describing a career academy: • A small learning community, comprised of a group of students within the larger high school, who take classes together for at least two years, and are taught by a team of teachers from different disciplines; • A college preparatory curriculum with a career theme, enabling students to see relationships among academic subjects, and their application to a broad filed of work; and • Partnerships with employers, the community, and local colleges, bring resources from outside the high school to improve student motivation and achievement.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher W. Plummer Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White 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,

were too intense. After a few minutes, everyone realized no one else was in the house and the baby was safe.” As Scorby presented the award in front of Williams’ and Knight’s family members and Sailors from his command, he stated, “It’s an absolute honor and privilege for me to be here today and present this award. You don’t see this award given very often. The only time I’ve seen this award presented was after 9-11 for some of the rescues at

the Pentagon. Chief, I can’t say how much admiration and respect I have for what you did by putting your life on the line to save another human being.” After receiving the award, Williams said, “I’m thrilled to be given this award. I just went to Jimmy’s third birthday party the other day and am just so happy that he is still here to celebrate it.” “Bryain definitely deserves this award. If it wasn't for him saving my son, he probably

would not be here today. Our families have become close and we spend time together. We’ve been there for one another through some hardships – Bryain’s wife, Cathy, passed away and although I didn’t know her long, she was very special to me. And, Jimmy knows that this is the man who saved his life,” said Knight. For more news from Naval Air Station Jacksonville, visit www.navy.mil/local/nasjax/.

Fighting scams that target the military Department of Justice has made protecting rights of service members and veterans a top priority By Stuart F. Delery Acting Assistant Attorney General, Civil Division, United States Department of Justice

When service members board the plane to return to the United States from deployment overseas, their family and friends are not the only ones waiting for them. Scam artists are also busy setting up store fronts, phone lines, and websites specifically targeting servicewomen. These consumer predators know that service members have to deal with unique pressures, such as spending extended periods of time abroad, moving to different cities multiple times, and being held to a higher standard for debt repayment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. In addition, servicewomen are known for having a steady income and trying to do what is best for their families. At the Department of Justice, we are working hard to protect consumers like you. The Civil Division’s Consumer Protection Branch has made fighting fraud aimed at service members and veterans a top priority. We are working internally with the Department’s Civil Rights Division to ensure that businesses respect the rights of servicewomen. And we are working externally with other agencies, such as the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, to identify potential fraud earli-

Stuart F.

er. We are also collaborating with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Office of Servicemember Affairs, led by Holly Petreaus, to engage in a dialogue with military leadership about how we can prevent this fraud together. And we have joined forces with federal and state prosecutors – as well as the JAG Corps – to identify scammers and bring more cases against them. We are committed to using all of the tools at our disposal to hold these swindlers responsible. But the best way to fight them is to deprive them of cus-

tomers. Service women of each military branch have told us about their experiences, and we are dedicated to getting their message out. Here are a few tips on how to protect yourself and your family: • Be wary of up-front fees. The sales pitch: “I can help you access benefits, get a good rate on a loan, and make a great investment. All you need to do is pay me an up-front fee.” The defense: The military offers legal assistance, interest free emergency loans, and financial planning tools. Ask your military installation offices for details. • Always find out what the total price is. The sales pitch: “I’ll sell you this car, refrigerator or anything else you want. Just give me a little bit of money every installment.” The defense: Salespeople can offer misleading information about how much something really costs once all the payments and fees are added up. If the total price is too high, take your business elsewhere. • Don’t trust promises about the future. The sales pitch: “Just buy the car with this higher interest rate and I’ll call you later once I get the lower rate interest for you.” The defense: Make sure that everyone agrees to the final terms of a deal before you hand over any money. • Find out who you are dealing with. The sales pitch: “I’m a veteran of the armed forces. Sign up with my program to make sure that your family has everything they need while deployed overseas.”

The defense: Ask your base community-service office about the company or individual. You can also contact the Better Business Bureau. And, if you have been the victim of a scam, we encourage you to come forward and complain. So often, financial fraud goes unreported because victims feel embarrassed or foolish. But only when you complain is it possible for you to get the help you need. And only when we know there is a problem can we and our law enforcement partners work to stop it. So, consult your military installation legal assistance office or your state attorney general — and log your complaint at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov or at www.consumerfinance.gov/complaint/. With your help, we can continue to ramp up our fight against those who prey on the financial well-being of you and your families, and leave you free to focus on your invaluable work protecting the Nation. Thank you for your service.

Now available on NKO: CMC/CSC/COB career roadmap By Ed Barker NETC PAO

The newest addition to the Learning and Development Roadmap (LaDR) library is available on Navy Knowledge Online (NKO) with the posting of the command master chief (CMC), command senior chief (CSC) and chief of the boat (COB) LaDR recently. LaDRs are Sailor-focused tools that outline training and education milestones at each pay grade and provide guidance toward advanced educational opportunities and professional certifications. “This is the first time that we’ve codified what it takes to reach and succeed at the highest levels of enlisted leadership,” said Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Mike Stevens.

“For Sailors aspiring to these vital positions, the CMC/CSC/COB LaDR gives a step-by-step approach to getting there.” LaDRs are updated annually and support the Chief of Naval Operations’ sailing directions by providing a valuable rate-specific guide for mentoring and developing Sailors. LaDRs guide Sailors and leaders by identifying current and projected opportunities including rate training, professional military education, advanced education initiatives and professional certifications. Fleet, type and training commands should ensure distribution of LaDRs to every enlisted pay grade at all commands and use them during career development boards. “After completing the LaDRs for each of the enlisted

ratings, we realized that reaching E-8 or E-9 is not the end of the line for many Sailors,” said Navy Total Force/Manpower Personnel, Training & Education FLTCM(SW/AW/SCW) Scott Benning. “Our senior enlisted leaders can serve for 10 or more years after making rank and the CMC/CSC/COB LaDR gives them a path to continue their personal and professional development inside the Navy.” LaDR familiarization begins at recruit training with follow-on discussions at “A” School. Command indoctrination provides an additional

opportunity for leadership to reinforce the value of LaDRs in individual Sailor development. Introducing LaDRs early-on will result in every Sailor gaining baseline knowledge of his or her career progression and assist them in setting realistic goals toward upward career mobility. LaDRs can be accessed through the NKO home page h t t p s : / / w w w a . nko.navy.mil/portal/home/ by selecting the “career management” tab and then navigating along the blue side banner to select the enlisted LaDR link. “We designed LaDRs to be living documents from the very beginning,” said Tom Smith, enlisted education coordinator for the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC). “Adding the CMC/CSC/COB LaDR to the library was a logical step.

We also update the individual LaDRs as ratings make major and minor calibrations, keeping them the ultimate career reference tool.” LaDRs provide not only the latest Sailor development information but also include rank-specific certification information via Navy Credentialing Opportunities Online (Navy COOL) and the United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP). Additional information about the CMC/CSC/COB LaDR is detailed in NavAdmin 376-12, available through the Naval Personnel Command Web site at: http://www.npc. navy.mil/ ReferenceLibrary/Messages/ .

Pensacola area medical providers teach advanced life-saving course to NMOTC personnel NMOTC PAO

Medical professionals from Navy medicine’s recognized global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training instructed a class aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola recently designed to augment lifesaving capabilities. The Navy Medicine Operational Training Center’s (NMOTC) Staff Education and Training (SEAT) Department facilitated the American Heart Association (AHA) accredited Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS), ensuring more than 20 NMOTC-area medical professionals remained certified in the day-long required course. NMOTC SEAT leading petty officer HM1(SW/FMF) Jeffrey Casady said the course – a standardized AHA offering providing continuing education for physicians, nurses, pharmacists and emergency medical services (EMS) practitioners – serves to build on the already significant reputation U.S. Navy medical professionals embody. “This course is a recom-

mendation for anyone deploying,” he said. “But it’s important for everyone. Even though the majority of the students in this class are in administrative or student roles at NMOTC right now, maintaining readiness is key, and something NMOTC

takes quite serious.” Casady said the course, an evolution that encompasses a Basic Life Saving (BLS) skills station as well as blocks of instruction on respiratory arrest, pulseless arrest, strokes, algorithms and bradycardia/tachycardia situations, serves as a

refresher for these students. “Knowing how to save someone’s life is important,” he said. “This course is something Navy medicine has championed as a requirement every health care provider needs to complete in an effort to do

what Navy medicine does best – save lives.” NMOTC ACLS students watched an informational video, received instruction from Naval Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) staff, took a written exam and demonstrated practical

skills during the course, which was administered under the auspices of the Military Training Network, an entity that develops and implements policy guidance and ensures compliance with curriculum and administrative standards for resuscitative and trauma medicine training programs for uniformed service members and Department of Defense affiliates worldwide. NAMI is a component of NMOTC, the recognized global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training, which reports to NMETC, the sole point of accountability for Navy medicine education and training. NAMI, NMOTC and NMETC are all part of the Navy medicine team, a global health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide high-quality health care to more than one million eligible beneficiaries. Navy medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ships, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

Media campaign zooms in on ‘bath salts’ By Valerie A. Kremer U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery PAO

FALLS CHURCH, Va. – Navy medicine launched a new informational video and poster regarding the health risks and dangers of the synthetic amphetamine known as “bath salts” and other designer drugs Dec. 20. The public service announcement video and poster will be distributed for display throughout the fleet and are available for download at http://www.med. navy.mil/Pages/Synthetic drugs.aspx. The new media products that focus on the dangers of bath salts are part of the long-term awareness

An informational poster is part of the Navy’s new public service campaign against “bath salts.”

and deterrence campaign Navy medicine launched last year on synthetic and designer drugs. The effort is also part of an overall Navy communications plan with partners at the Naval Personnel Command and the Naval

Criminal Investigative Service and other commands. The education and awareness campaign supports the Navy’s zero-tolerance policy on designer drug use, as well as highlights the real and present

risks of bath salts. The campaign’s goal is to decrease the number of active-duty service members who use designer drugs such as bath salts and the synthetic marijuana “Spice” because they are falsely marketed as a “legal” way to get high. According to Navy medicine psychiatry resident Lt. George Loeffler at the Naval Medical Center San Diego, Calif., the adverse health effects from bath salt use can range from lack of appetite to kidney failure, muscle spasms, severe paranoid delusions and psychosis. Several cases of long-term inpatient hospitalization and suicide have been reported and Loeffler has firsthand experience treating service members at

military treatment facilities with these symptoms. “I would say not just as the naval officer, but as your doctor, bath salts will not only jack up your family and your career, it will jack up your mind and body too,” said Loeffler in the PSA available online. The bath salts campaign’s slogan, “Bath salts: It’s not a fad ... It’s a nightmare,” reflects the hallucinogenic effect of bath salts, which are a non-regulated designer drug comprised of a synthetic cathinone, or amphetamine, that can have a dangerous or debilitating effect on the user. “As the leader of the medical community for the Navy and Marine Corps, I cannot emphasize enough to our Sailors and

Marines that using synthetic drugs really is just like playing Russian roulette with their health, not to mention their career,” Vice Adm. Matthew L. Nathan, U.S. Navy surgeon general, said last year in an editorial written for a California newspaper. Nathan affirmed that the Navy will continue to highlight the issue of synthetic drug use by delivering sustained and targeted messages throughout the Navy and Marine Corps. “We cannot over-communicate this issue,” he said. “Accountability for those who abuse these substances will help deter their use.” For more news from Navy medicine, visit www.navy.mil/local/med news/.

NAMI flight surgeon awarded national scholarship From Navy Medicine Operational Training Center Public Affairs

A flight surgeon from the U.S. Navy’s premier aeromedical training facility was awarded a $2,000 scholarship by one of the most recognizable aerospace medical organizations in the United States, the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) announced Dec. 28. Cmdr. Chris Orsello, a flight surgeon at NAMI in Pensacola, was notified by the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA) that he was selected as the 2012 AsMA Fellows Scholarship Competition Winner for his research, manuscript, and presentation titled “Height and In-Flight Low Back Pain Association Among Military Helicopter Pilots.”

According to AsMA scholarship committee members, the award was based on the high scientific value, originality, quality and relevance of Orsello’s work. Orsello, currently assigned as the chief resident assistant within the NAMI Aerospace Medicine Residency, has also been selected to assume command of the medical department of the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) in 2013. A 14-year Navy veteran specializing in preventive aerospace medicine and family medicine, Orsello said the recognition in his community underscores the significant work and advances naval aerospace medicine has made. AsMA, the largest, most-representative professional membership organization in the field of aviation, space and environ-

mental medicine, serves as an umbrella, providing a forum for numerous disciplines to share their expertise for all individuals involved in air and space travel medicine. Approximately 25 percent of the membership is international. The AsMA Fellows Scholarship is designed to offset the costs of registration fees, transportation, hotel accommodations or other expenses incurred by attending a scholarly meeting on a topic related to aerospace medicine. Orsello said he plans to use the funds to create a NAMI Aeromedical Award for Excellence designated specifically for local eligible corpsmen ranked E-5 and below, by holding a scholarly competition to foster their innovative ideas toward aerospace preventive medicine.

Funding will also be used to attend the 2013 Scientific Meeting of the Aerospace Medical Association in Chicago in May 2013, for which he and colleagues have been selected to present three new key research projects that target aeromedical injury prevention. The new research will be the first to analyze 15 years of hearing loss incidence across all branches of aviators in the Department of Defense, 30 years of U.S. Navy and Marine Corps ejection injury patterns and is designed to capture the prevalence, predictors and mission impact of neck pain among Navy helicopter pilots.

Navy photo history preserved in Bldg. 1500 Story, photos by Gretchen DeVuyst PAO Intern

The National Association of Naval Photography and several local retired Navy photographers have sponsored a commemorative room for military photography in Bldg. 1500 onboard NAS Pensacola (NASP). (Note: Because of its location in base headquarters, the room is not open to the general public.) The memorial is located in the building’s unique “Periscope Room” (Room 206), which was once used to teach Sailors how to take photos through a submarine periscope. Bldg. 1500 was the home for the Naval Schools of Photography from 1950 to 1998. “The reason why we are doing this is because our naval photography history is disappearing at a rapid rate,” said retired Navy Lt. Todd Beveridge. Beveridge attended the photography school at NASP in 1982 and is currently president of the National Association of Naval Photography. He enlisted as a Navy photographer and was later commission as a Navy photographic officer. A large amount of the equipment once used by naval photographers was sent to the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Office (DRMO), which is in charge of properly

disposing of the products. According to retired Chief Photographer’s Mate Art Giberson, a former director of photojournalism and public affairs officer for the Schools of Naval Photography, naval photography as a Navy rating started in Pensacola in 1914, when the battleship USS Mississippi, under the command of Lt. Cmdr. Henry Mustin, steamed into Pensacola Bay with orders to establish a naval flying school. One of the Mississippi’s crewmembers, Ship’s Cook 4th Class Walter Leroy Richardson, an amateur photographer, snapped pictures of what would eventually become NAS Pensacola. Once the aeronautic station was up and operating, Richardson, when not serving up meals for the ship’s crew, took pictures of the various flight activities. In addition to his love of photography, Richardson also enjoyed tinkering with machinery. This combination of skills quickly brought him to the attention of Lt. j.g. John Towers, who had been assigned the task of converting the old shipyard into the Navy’s first Naval Aeronautic Station and Flying School. It soon became obvious to Towers that the aeronautic station needed mechanics more than the battleship needed cooks, so he arranged for Richardson to be temporarily assigned to the aviation unit as a mechanic.

The periscope room is on the second floor of Bldg.1500. A display outside of the room gives a brief history on the U.S. Naval Schools of Photography.

This change in duty provided the perfect opportunity for Richardson to pursue his photographic hobby. During the next few months, Richardson spent nearly as much time taking pictures of the various aviation training activities as he did working in the machine shop. His unofficial photographic pursuits caused Towers to take a closer look at the cook/mechanic. Convinced that Richardson’s photographic skills were of far greater value

A World War II-era periscope is built into the middle of Room 206. It is surrounded by many types of cameras and significant equipment once used in naval photography. These pieces were loaned out to the exhibit by retired naval photographers from all over America. “I have used about every camera in here at some point,” said retired Navy Chief Photographer’s Mate Art Giberson.

to the flying school than were his mechanical or culinary skills, Towers asked Mustin to permanently assign Richardson to the aeronautic station as the official station photographer. In 1917, Richardson was sent to the Army Aerial School of Photography at Langley Field, Va., for further training in aerial photography. After graduating from the school in January 1918, Richardson returned to Pensacola and was immediately commissioned as an ensign in the Naval Reserve Flying Corps, where he received his wings and became naval aviator number 582. He was then sent to Miami, Fla., to establish a naval school of aerial photography. In 1923, the school moved to Pensacola as the Naval Schools of Photography, where it remained until 1998, having been renamed the Defense Photography School and operating as a joint service school. The Defense Photography School was moved June 12, 1998, when it consolidated with the Defense Information School at Fort Meade, Md. This school trains service men and women in public affairs, visual information and broadcasting. Other local residents who are primarily responsible for getting the periscope room exhibit started, in addition to Giberson, include Jim Russell, Bob Devore, Jere Jaillite, Kate Holy, Al McCoy, Dan Murray and John Starkey. Giberson

was selected as delegate for the group, responsible for getting permission for the exhibit. Photography school at NASP consisted of three phases. The first phase was an introductory course; the next phase taught students how to use different cameras; and in the third phase, students learned basic photojournalism and the final course was motion picture photography. According to Giberson and Beveridge, it was a pretty tough school to get into and to get through. “When the photography school was aboard NASP it was really an elite school, one of the best in the country, civilian or military,” said Beveridge. Training at NASP and graduate school at the University of Southern California led Beveridge to work with psychological operations, public affairs and even starting his own film production company. According to Giberson when the school closed, a time capsule was buried in front of Bldg. 1500. It contains mementos from students, staff and instructors at the school at the time. The capsule is to be opened in 2098, 100 years after the school’s decommissioning. The naval school may no longer be around, but its history will continue to live on through people like Beveridge, Giberson and members of the National Association of Naval Photography.

Making financial goals for a new year


By MC2 Andrea Perez, Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

f setting financial goals is on the list of New Year’s resolutions Sailors should create a plan, write down goals and review saving and spending strategies, said a Navy financial specialist Jan. 3.

request their free myFICO credit report from their base financial counselor. Paying off debt is one of the top financial resolutions for many and there are several methods for Sailors to consider when doing this, said Livingstone-Hoyte. One strategy is to tackle the debt that has the highest interest rate first. Mathematically, this is usually the most advantageous way

“State your financial resolutions simply and clearly for the new year,” said Stacy Livingstone-Hoyte, financial counselor, Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC). “If Sailors set too many or unrealistic financial goals, they may not be able to accomplish any of them. To stay accountable, maintain a checklist, track how you are doing throughout the year and make modifications as needed.” Livingstone-Hoyte also suggests Sailors meet with their local command financial specialist (CFS) or other financial counseling resource to review the plans they have set in place to achieve their goals. A CFS provides financial education and training, counseling, and information referral at the command level at no cost to Sailors and their families. After Sailors create their financial plan, Livingstone-Hoyte encourages them to make S.M.A.R.T. goals; this money management acronym refers to making specific, measureable, actionoriented, realistic and timely financial goals. And don’t forget to write them down. A crucial part of any money management plan is to establish or review financial goals, evaluate accomplishments, anticipate and make and implement changes where necessary. “With a proposed 1.7 percent pay increase in 2013, Sailors should consider viewing this as ‘found’ or ‘new’ money,” said Livingstone-Hoyte. “New money can be saved, spent, invested or a combination of each. The idea being that what isn’t seen cannot be spent.” Sailors are also encouraged to review their credit reports. Activeduty service members and spouses can











Financial matters that occur from overspending or bad budgeting, such as failure to pay bills, bad credit, bankruptcy and foreclosures can negatively impact a Sailor’s career. “Financial management is a key quality of life issue that affects every Sailor, their family members and the command,” said Livingstone-Hoyte. “Bad financial decisions can drastically affect the morale, readiness and retention of Sailors.” Sailors experiencing financial challenges should notify their chain of command and work with their CFS to develop a budget and explore additional options such as military relief societies, eligibility for interest rate reductions and other strategies. For more information on financial planning, budgeting or investing, contact CFS, NASP FFSC (452-5990) or call the Navy Personnel Command customer service center at 1-866-U-ASK-NPC or e-mail CSCMailbox@navy.mil.

Top 10 tips for clearing out clutter (NAPS) – If you’re like most Americans, you’ve lost something valuable because of clutter, according to a recent Harris Interactive survey. The most common thing lost? Important documents and bills. So that you don’t have to deal with such difficulties, here are 10 tips to help you get organized: Tip 10: Start small when starting to declutter. Pick one area or room and sort through your stuff. Purge items no longer used and assign the keepers a place. Tip 9: Keep things orderly. Create zones for certain activities or categories and store all related items in that zone. Tip 8: Have a young family? Make it a game with your kids to get organized. Create a treasure hunt and you may rediscover items once thought to be

to pay off debt. Once that is paid off, move on to the next highest interest rate debt. This way, an individual is making more progress by reducing how much of their money goes to paying interest each month. “Smallest balance” and “shortest term” are a few other debt-elimination choices. For some people, paying off the smallest balance can provide a strong sense of accomplishment and the motivation to keep moving forward. Using a simple debt repayment calculator can help a person make this decision. “Set a goal, make a plan and save automatically – this is the theme of the 2013 Military Saves campaign,” said Livingstone-Hoyte. “The focus here is to master the fundamentals of money management by implementing good habits and sticking to your plans.” Service members can visit www.MilitarySaves.org to take the “Saver’s Pledge,” read success stories of other military families and sign-up to receive objective year-round advice about personal finances.

for their work. Tip 5: Donate duplicate or unwanted items to a charity that can then use your extras to support those in need. Tip 4: Pick your battles. Start with what is manageable, like a closet, and work your way toward larger projects, such as the basement or garage. Tip 3: Create routines. Make it a habit to tackle a new area of the home every month. Tip 2: Put it away now. Done using something? Instead of letting things pile up, put them away immediately. You can have plenty of places to put stuff when you get storage units, shelving and organization kits. Tip 1: Enjoy the spoils of victory. Cleaning and organizing is a daunting but rewarding task. Enjoy your accomplishment.

One of the most anticipated traditions of the year is decorating the tree for Christmas. For many people the glorious swathes of light and glistening ornaments not only set the tone of the season, but also remind them of the importance of unity and family. In most cases, the military community is very much like a family, yet for many active-duty personnel here at NAS Pensacola (NASP), the joys of the season can seem lost so far from family and friends.

Navy service members get together to show their appreciation for Christmas decorations donated by local schoolchildren.

“Ornaments for the Troops” is a program to help connect local schools that have children of service members with young warfighters who provide inspiration and dedication

Marines get a big “thank you” out to the children at Blue Angel and Pleasant Grove elementary schools for their homemade Christmas decorations.

to the nation. It was started five years ago by Theresa A. Withee, director of NASP Unaccompanied Housing, and Nemesio Sodusta, senior site manager. It allows the community to spread a little cheer to the men and women serving so far from their loved ones. This year, students from Hellen Caro, Warrington, Navy Point, Blue Angel, and Pleasant Grove elementary schools worked with building managers at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) and Radford Unaccompanied Housing sites to present activeduty members with creative, handmade ornaments for Christmas trees in their buildings.

These trees graced the entry and welcomed all to the wonders of the season. As a token of appreciation, the schools received memory books of cheerful photos of service men and women decorating the trees with these beautifully crafted, environmentally friendly ornaments. The staff of NASP Unaccompanied Housing, particularly Withee, Doug Plodzik, Joe Alo, Ralph Austria, Lionell Williams, Frank Gooden, Robert Jones and Scott Cox, expressed their deepest gratitude to the Pensacola area schools that helped boost the holiday morale with the show of support for the military community.

Make sure you are ready for hazards that come with winter Navy Installations Command

WASHINGTON – The arrival of the new year means colder temperatures are coming. Many people look forward to curling up by the fire, but the winter’s frigid temperatures and storms make emergency preparedness especially crucial. With advanced planning in three key areas, you can be ready for any unexpected hazard that surfaces amidst winter’s delight. Ready Navy is here to help. Visit www.ready.navy.mil. • Be and stay informed: Learn about hazards that are common in winter months and most likely to happen in your area, such as winter storms and power outages. The Ready Navy website “Be and Stay Informed” tabs offer specific instructions, information and resources you may need to know regarding winter

Freeze winter fires Heating sources are the second leading cause of home fires every year, especially during winter months. Candles and wood burning fireplaces are big culprits. Freeze winter fires by using these items safely: • Keep anything combustible at least three feet from any heat source. • Use kerosene heaters only where approved by authorities, and refuel outside and only after the heater has cooled. • Never leave a burning candle unattended or abandoned. • Use fireplace screens and have your chimney cleaned every year. • Make sure that your home has at least one smoke detector. storms, power outages and home fires. • Make a plan: As a family, make an emergency plan so that everyone in the family understands what to do, where to go, and what to take in the event of a fire or any emergency. Additionally, winter fire hazards, ice and winds can bring down power lines, making traditional communication difficult. Your emergency

plan should include how your family will communicate, particularly if normal communication methods, such as phone lines or cell towers, are out. Road conditions and other hazards can limit ease of movement. Have a contact person outside the area that each member of the family can notify that they are safe, if separated. Lastly, learn about the mustering

requirements at your command and become familiar with the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS) (https://navyfamily.navy.mil). • Build a kit: The best way to prepare for the unexpected is to create one or more emergency kits that include enough water and non-perishable supplies for every family member to survive at least three days. In winter months, be sure to include blankets in your kits to bundle and warm family members should power outages knock out heat sources. You can find a suggested list of other kit items under the Ready Navy website “Make a Plan” tab. For information about Ready Navy and to stay informed about all hazards, visit www.ready.navy.mil. Ready Navy is a CNIC-sponsored emergency preparedness program.

Circus all charged up for audience By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

Circus fans will be hanging around the Pensacola Bay Center this weekend for performances of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, Fully Charged, Gold Edition, which continue through Sunday. Getting a chance to bring “The Greatest Show on Earth” is a dream come true for ringmaster, David Shipman, who is a Pensacola native. Shipman’s love for the circus was ignited as a child when his family took him to a Ringling Bros. production. “I remember being in awe of all of it, and I still have the trinket that was bought for me. I’ve kept it all these years,” he said.

Details What: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Fully Charged, Gold Edition. When: 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. today, Jan. 11; 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. tomorrow, Jan. 12; and 2 p.m. Jan. 13. Where: Pensacola Bay Center. Cost: Ticket from $15 to $45. Tickets on sale at box office or at www.ticketmaster.com. Details: Call 1 (800) 745-3000 or go to www.ringling.com.

Shipman attended a performing arts magnet school, was member of the Pensacola Children’s Chorus and was involved in theater as a teen-ager. He returned to full-time performing after putting it on a back-burner after college and was

hired last year by Ringling Bros. after catching the attention of talent scouts and producers, Nicole and Alana Feld. “And with Ringling Bros., I now have this incredible opportunity to tour the United States and see places that I’d never have had the opportunity to see ― it’s amazing. It’s been a whirlwind. It almost doesn’t feel real, like it’s happening to someone else. I’m proof that’s it’s never too late to chase after your dreams,” Shipman said. Shipman will be introducing the circus acts, which include elephants, jugglers and clowns. Performers include the father-andson comedy duo Anton and Viktor Franke, the Lopez Troupe highwire act, the Smaha Troupe of extreme jugglers and the Vavilov Troupe of acrobats.
