Excellence award caps stellar year for NAS Pensacola By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer
It looks like 2015 could be another excellent year for Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). Being named the best large shore Navy installation in the world caps off a stellar year for the base, which celebrated its 100year anniversary in 2014, said NASP CO Capt. Keith Hoskins. “It just puts the icing on the cake,” Hoskins said. And there is other good news. As a result of the excellence award, the base will receive $224,000 that can be used to improve existing facilities. The competition for the Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) Installation Excellence Award was steep, Hoskins said. CNIC oversees 11 regions comprising 69 installations worldwide, and the large installation category includes bases with more than 500 people. It has been more than 10 years since NASP has come out on top of the installation excellence list.
The last time NASP won the award was 2003, Hoskins said. Hoskins credits the hard work of the NASP team and members of the Pensacola community for the win. “When I came here, I put that goal out to the leadership and the team here at NAS Pensacola, and the team answered the call,” he said. “They are the ones that made it happen. It’s the team here onboard NAS Pensacola that won this award.” But there is another challenge ahead. NASP will now compete against the top bases from other service branches worldwide for the 2015 Commander in Chief’s Annual Award for Installation Excellence, which will be announced in the spring. “So we will keep our fingers crossed,” Hoskins said. Hoskins also gave a nod to Naval Air Station Whiting Field, which won the top installation excellence honor for small installations, giving Northwest Florida

NHP: Flu cases on the rise this year By Jason Bortz NHP PAO
The United States is currently in the middle of the annual flu season and many parts of the country, including the Southeast, are experiencing high levels of flu activity. “Across the Unites States, hospitals are seeing more than double the number of flu-related
admissions than last year,” said Lt. Cmdr. Mary Graves, department head, Preventive Medicine, Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP). The flu season typically runs from October through April, but it is not always predictable. According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 5 to 20 percent of the U.S. population gets the flu every year and more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from complications. According to Graves, there have been 55 deaths in Escambia
County in the past five years related to the flu. The majority of the deaths were with the elderly, but complications from the flu can occur at any age and are often preventable. To help combat the likelihood of contracting the flu, the CDC and NHP recommends everyone 6 months and older get an annual flu shot. All TRICARE beneficiaries can receive a free flu shot
New housing website helps property managers, landlords, service members and DoD civilians connect From Navy Installations Command Housing Program
WASHINGTON (NNS) – The Navy, along with the other military branches, has announced a new website, HOMES.mil, that is dedicated to helping service members, Department of Defense (DoD) civilians and their families with home finding services. The new DoD website provides a vehicle for community housing landlords and property managers to create and update their profiles and listings. HOMES.mil is a secure website that allows property managers, landlords and service members a means to market their properties. Those using the website are able to control their listings and upload photos and floors plans to the website.

HOMES.mil is a service designed to connect service members and their families with community housing rental listings located near U.S. military bases.
“The Navy has worked alongside the other services to offer the best housing options to service members around the world,” said Greg Wright, Navy Housing program director. “HOMES.mil modernizes the way Navy Housing provides information on local rental properties and improves the Housing Service Centers’ customer service to Sailors and their families while helping to alleviate some of the burden and stress of (permanent change of station).”
Landlords and property managers, who have worked with the Housing Service Centers (HSCs) in the past, can create a login for HOMES.mil and are able to access their previously listed properties. Once a landlord or property manager creates a login, they can manage their property listing. These listings can include a list of amenities, photos and other information to

On Jan. 12, the rufa red knot (Calidris canutus rufa) was listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This robin-sized shorebird is a long-distance migrator, with some individuals flying more than 9,300 miles per year with a 20-inch wingspan. It’s been recorded at Navy bases throughout the region and Atlantic Coast. They breed in the Canadian Arctic, winter in parts of

Road construction continues: Lane closures for gas line work From Hung Nguyen NavFac SE Public Works Department
Naval Facilities Southeast (NavFac SE) NAS Pensacola Public Works Department (PWD), in conjuntion with with Utility Services Corp., is in the process of re-piping the natural gas main and relocating gas valves away from Murray Road near Pen Air Federal Credit Union (FCU) onboard NAS Pensacola. It is estimated the project will take five weeks to complete. The traffic plan is available for viewing at Bldg. 3560/utility section. NASP XO Cmdr. David Jasso recently address the traffic situation in an e-mail to base personnel. “Morning traffic flow: As you know, all inbound NASP main gate traffic is now being routed south on Duncan Road. The previously published routing to the east side of the base (NATTC, Portside, NEX, etc.) has folks traveling south on Duncan and then turning left on Taylor Road. “This has led to some backups with the left lane on Duncan.

bases a sweep in the large and small categories for the first time. “Having Escambia County and Santa Rosa County now on the global Navy map, that is quite an accomplishment,” Hoskins said. “We are so proud of the team up there at Whiting, and we are just happy to be in the same sentence with them taking this award for the entire Navy.” The CNIC award also confirms that 2014 was an epic year for NASP. Hoskins highlighted some of NASP’s 2014 achievements in his end-of-the-year message: • NASP’s centennial celebration featured many epic events that celebrated the base’s history and heritage. • The Morale, Welfare and Recre-

(while Moffett Road will also take you eastbound, we request folks not transit Moffett Road. as this is through the CDC/housing area). “Bottom line: if the left lane on Duncan is backed up, utilize the right lane and proceed further south for your left turn. “A.C. Read Golf Course traffic: There has been some confusion on how to exit the golf course in order to return on base. There is no right turn out onto Murray Road. If the intent is to exit the base, it is recommended you exit the golf course on Murray and take a left turn off the base. If intent is to leave the golf course parking lot and return on base, then one should exit onto Duncan and turn right (northbound), and then conduct a turn-around just past Bldg. 777 (Pass and ID). NASP Security has a lane sectioned off for returning traffic. No ID check; simply proceed through the turnaround lane and merge over past the cones into southbound traffic to return on base.”
The short version is: If the left lane is backed up to turn off Duncan on to Taylor, go down the right lane and don’t turn left till you get to Turner or Radford. If you are leaving the golf course on to Duncan, you can’t turn left. You have to turn right, but as soon as you get past the security building you can turn left and re-enter the base.

because the body is producing antibodies to fight the flu and that can make you feel a little rundown.” While the flu vaccine will not protect against every strain, the vaccine will help protect against multiple strains of the flu that are circulating this year and can help reduce serious outcomes such as hospitalization. The flu vaccine will also help with the recovery of the flu, even if it’s one of the strains not covered in this year’s flu vaccine because the vaccine helps the body build antibodies that can combat multiple strains of the flu. “Even though the strains don’t match exactly this year, getting vaccinated will still give a person partial protection,” said Graves. “The vaccine will reduce the severity of symptoms and result in fewer days being sick and less time lost to work or normal activities.” Common flu symptoms can include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, muscle aches and fatigue. Most people will recover from the flu after a few days and usually do not need prescribed medications to recover. “If you feel flu symptoms coming on, drink lots of fluids and get lots of rest,” said Cmdr. Kim Toone, associate director for public health, NHP. “You can also take an over-the-counter decongestant or pain reliever to help as well.” People at risk of flu-related complications include pregnant women, children younger than age 2, elderly people older than 65 and patients with chronic health problems such as asthma, heart disease and a weakened immune system. Anyone that falls into one of these categories should contact their health care provider as soon as they begin to feel flu symptoms. “If you are a high-risk beneficiary, please get your flu vaccine,” said Toone, “and contact your health care provider as soon as you feel flu symptoms developing to discuss other treatment options that may be beneficial.” In addition to receiving the flu vaccine, there are additional precautions that people can take to prevent the flu. These simple precautions include avoiding close contact with those that are infected with the flu, staying home when sick, covering the mouth and nose when sneezing, washing hands regularly, avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. Any beneficiary with questions regarding the flu or flu systems should contact their Primary Care Manager or Medical Home Port Team. TRICARE beneficiaries can also contact the Nurse Advise Line 24-hours a day at 1-800-TRICARE, option 1, to speak to a nurse about the flu.

The birds’ use of shoreline across the Western Hemisphere means that its survival depends on the protection of habitat spanning from each end of the American continents, including NAS Pensacola beaches and other military installations along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. Since the 1980s, the rufa red knot population has declined by 75 percent in some areas. Changing climate conditions have affected the bird’s food supply, migration timing, and breeding habitat quality. Sea level rise and shoreline projects and development have resulted in the loss of habitat. The shorebird’s food supply has also been

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,

affected by overharvesting. Given the significant decline in population, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife decided to give the rufa red knot the threatened species status until these factors are addressed. Using eBird.org, an online birding tool, vistitors to the page can see that the rufa red knot has been recorded to occur or transit through NASP and nearby beaches. Some individuals spend the winter on the Gulf Coast, while others stop to feed on their migrations during the spring and fall. The effect of this species’ listing on NASP is not yet known, but Navy Natural Resources staff will now have to consider the birds’ presence on base when making decisions. The base is a strong supporter of the conservation of its natural resources, and will continue this stewardship in the protection of this newly threatened species.

Military money matters: Take charge of your finances By Rosemary Freitas Williams Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy
hether you’re a newbie recruit or an old salt, managing your money takes some time and attention. Despite the regular paycheck, it doesn’t happen on its own. Forgive the pun, but the effort will pay off. As a service member, there’s basic pay, travel pay, hazardous duty pay, cost-of-living allowances and much more. Then there are deductions, bills, rent or mortgage payments, and somehow making sure there is money to set aside for holiday overspending, unexpected expenses, college and retirement. Life happens. It might seem overwhelming, but help is available, free, and easy to access, no matter what stage of your military career you are in. There are too many important reasons to list when it comes to taking charge of your finances. Your career is one reason. When your finances are in order, you’re able to focus on the mission. Let’s get started. This will only take a moment. First, we will discuss what help is available and then give some

There are three ways for a service member or their spouse to get credentialed, financial expert help so you can create a personalized budget and set long- and short-term goals in order to reduce debt and increase savings. It doesn’t matter if you want to build a plan, have a serious financial issue or just need a gut check, one of the following options is sure to meet your needs: Personal financial managers are available at installation family support centers. Your command can provide personal financial counselors for face-to-face sessions through the Military and Family Life Counselor program.

Book confidential face-toface or telephone financial counseling through Military OneSource. This is the easiest, fastest path. Just call (800) 3429647 or go to the Military OneSource website (www.military onesource.mil). If you are just starting out, having a financial plan and saving for the future may seem like “to do” items for later on. But ask anyone who was born before 1975 and they will tell you it is never too soon to be financially fit. Conversely, it is never too late to start ... especially if you suddenly find yourself in a
financial pickle. OK, that’s the free and easy help. Now some money news you could use: • The Thrift Savings Plan is a great way to save money. This long-term savings plan is painless, because money is automatically deducted from your paycheck and moved into investment funds. It’s simple to use, there are variety of funds to fit your investment style and goals, and the annual costs are about the lowest you’ll find anywhere. The Thrift Savings Plan is where you start small and build wealth over time. It’s the real deal. • An allotment is a different kind of financial tool. Think of the old infomercial phrase, “set it and forget it.” Here’s what I mean: let’s say your short-term goal is to purchase a home or create an emergency fund. Military allotments help get you there by automatically debiting your paycheck before you get paid, set in amounts you determine, making it easier to reach your goals. It sounds like a mind game, but let’s face it, it’s easier to not spend money if it first detours to a lender or a savings account before it hits your wallet. Good news: As of Jan. 1, allotments cannot be used to pay for purchases, leases or rental of personal property. This to pro-
tect you from dishonest lenders who may want to take advantage of these guaranteed payments. • Speaking of protections, the Military Lending Act also protects you and your money from lenders who may want to take advantage of your steady paycheck. The Military Lending Act caps interest rates on some forms of consumer credit (like short-term payday, vehicle title and tax refund anticipation loans) that the Department of Defense has decided are harmful to active-duty members and their families. The Department is considering changes to definitions applied to the Military Lending Act that would cover all payday and car title loans, as well as, installment loans, pawn shop loans and credit cards. Learning about protections like these can help you keep your hard-earned cash and invest it in ways that really benefit you and your family. There’s another reason for taking charge of your finances – it’s your hard-earned money. And you owe it to yourself to get the most out of it. Personal financial counselors can help you take the important steps, answer your questions, get you started with a spending plan, and help you steer clear of scams and pitfalls.

The third line of the creed states: “The faces of children thrilled today by blue and gold are the faces I wish to see take my place tomorrow.” Anderson had lived up to the creed. He was indeed watching that thrilled face take his place. “Seeing him again all these years later was such a cool experience,” said Suyderhoud. “It was at the end of the year show (Above, left) Childhood photo of Matt and Johan Suyderhoud with then-Lt.

up his brother at a new language, he’s working out. “I used to play a lot of sports but have stopped that for the time being,” said Suyderhoud. “If I get hurt, there is no replacement pilot to fill my spot. That goes for all members of the team.” Currently, the team is in winter training, getting ready for the show season. Suyderhoud’s first show will be March 14 in El Centro, Calif. “It is a bit daunting to think my first show is that close because it almost feels like I am learning to fly all over again,” said Suyderhoud. “But, we keep getting better every day and the challenge of learning and perfecting the maneuvers is a ton of fun.” Anderson has continued to mentor Suyderhoud. Suyderhoud is a perfect reminder to Anderson that the most memorable aspects of being a Blue Angel is meeting and talking with the young people. “Whether it was the Friday morning visits to high school and college campuses, visits to hospital wards or on the crowd line, the memory of the young people you meet never really leaves you,” said Anderson. “Honestly, I’m sometimes at a loss for words,” said Suyderhoud. “It is a tremendous honor to have a chance to encourage kids to work hard and follow their dreams, whether that is through military service or not. It is also a great honor to represent the men and women of the Navy and Marine Corps who, I think, embody the ideals of patriotism and courage that America was founded on.” At some point Suyderhoud will encounter a 3-year-old child and he will pose for a photo. And as that child clutches a toy replica of a Blue Angel jet, so might they also be clutching a dream that Suyderhoud will be a small part of. Click.

NHP: Physical versus occupational therapy Story, photo by MC1 James Stenberg NHP PAO
herapy can mean several different things, from helping people get through a tough time to strengthening parts of the body. Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP) Physical and Occupational Therapy Clinic aims to assist patients through any recovery process. Physical therapy and occupational therapy are often mistakenly thought of as being the same. Although there are similarities between the two, there are also distinct differences. “In the simplest terms, occupational therapy works with fine motor skills, and physical therapy works on gross motor skills,” said HM1 Taj Herbert, occupational therapy technician at NHP. “Between physical therapy and occupational therapy, we cover the whole body.” Both therapies help restore muscle strength, flexibility and range of motion, but each goes about treating these areas in different ways. “Occupational therapy concentrates on an individual’s independent function,” said Herbert. “It concentrates on improving activities of daily living (ADL) such as combing your hair, brushing your teeth, using the bathroom, maintain-
ing personal hygiene and feeding yourself.” The use of occupational therapy can help patients after an injury, the onset of an illness or with developmental delays such as autism and cerebral palsy. Occupational therapists help individuals to function as independently as possible. Within the field of occupational therapy, there are several specialized tracks for a technician to follow. Occupational therapy technicians first learn to treat basic hand conditions, deficits in ADL performance and basic neurological conditions such as stroke. As technicians gain experience, they begin to specialize in one or more specific areas, such as hand therapy, neurologic conditions, pediatrics, adaptive equipment/assistive technology and ergonomics/industrial occupational therapy to include worksite evaluation.
HM1Taj Herbert, occupational therapy technician, Naval Hospital Pensacola, consults a patient about her treatment plan. NHP’s Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy Clinic is available to all TRICARE beneficiaries on a referral basis only.
While occupational therapy focuses on independent function, physical therapy focuses on a specific part of the body that has undergone trauma such as a fracture or a torn ligament. The clinic assists patients in rehabilitation with specific exercises to regain function and mobility. “Physical therapy is the rehabilitation of muscular skeletal issues and injuries,” said HM2 Christopher Buenrostro, leading petty officer at the NHP Physical and Occupational Therapy Clinic. “We help with injuries ranging from ankle sprains to total
knee arthroscopy and restore everyday function to an area of the body.” Together, physical and occupational therapists can help people maximize their function, maintain independence and continue to lead active lives. Having physical and occupational therapists located at one military treatment facility is not a very common occurrence. Having both available for patients at NHP allows the hospital to offer its beneficiaries the convenience of treatment without having to send them elsewhere.
When asked about the value of having an occupational and physical therapy clinic at NHP, Buenrostro said, “Having both physical and occupational therapists at NHP is great. It gives patients the rehabilitation they need to get back to everyday tasks and helps maintain the overall well-being of (our beneficiaries).” The NHP Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy Clinic is available to all TRICARE beneficiaries on a referral basis only. Beneficiaries can contact the clinic at 5056727 for further information.

GOSPORT Quotations carved in stone
Jan. 19: Americans celebrate the achievements of Martin Luther King Jr.
from the MLK Memorial “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” – Strength to Love, 1963. “If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective.” – Christmas sermon, Atlanta, Ga., 1967. “Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.” – From the “I Have A Dream” speech in Washington, D.C., Aug. 28, 1963. “We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” – Washington National Cathedral, March 31, 1968. “Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a better person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.” – March for Integrated Schools, April 18, 1959. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” – Letter from Birmingham, Ala., jail, April 16, 1963. “True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.” – Stride Toward Freedom, 1958. “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.” – Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, Oslo, Norway, 1964.
Civil rights giant fought for principles with universal applicability By Michael Jay Friedman http://iipdigital.usembassy.gov
mericans on each third Monday of January honor the life and achievements of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968), the 1964 Nobel Peace laureate and the individual most associated with the triumphs of the African-American civil rights movement during the 1950s and 1960s. As a political organizer, supremely skilled orator and advocate of nonviolent protest, King was pivotal in persuading his fellow Americans to end the legal segregation that prevailed throughout the South and parts of other regions, and in sparking support for the civil rights legislation that established the legal framework for racial equality in the United States. The occasion is a federal holiday. In 2015, it falls on Jan. 19. In 2009, King’s birthday was also celebrated on Jan. 19, the day before the inauguration of Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the United States. King was among those champions of justice whose influence transcended national boundaries. A student of the philosophy and principles of nonviolence enunciated by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948), King in 1959 traveled to India, where he studied further the legacy of the man his widow, Coretta Scott King, later would call his “political mentor.” The late Nelson Mandela, accepting the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, similarly credited King as his predecessor in the effort to resolve justly the issues of racism and human dignity. Son of the prominent Atlanta pastor Martin Luther King Sr., King at the age of 26 completed a doctorate in theology at Boston University. In 1954, while completing his dissertation, King accepted the pastorate at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Ala. It was in Montgomery the following year that Rosa Parks, an African-American seamstress, was jailed for refusing to give up her seat on a segregated municipal bus to a white passenger. The incident sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, in

sympathetic Northern whites. In 1959, King traveled to India, where he met with followers of Gandhi and further refined his thought on nonviolent social protest. During the early 1960s, King and the SCLC initiated a number of peaceful protests against segregated institutions. In May 1963, Birmingham, Ala., Police Commissioner Eugene “Bull” Connor unleashed police dogs and high-
The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. (center) at the Civil Rights March on Washington, D.C., Aug. 28, 1963. From U.S. Information Agency, Press and Publications Service
In 1957, King was among the founders of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). This was an alliance of black ministers and churches organized to pursue nonviolent direct action against segregation. SCLC leaders hoped to change public opinion and to complement the legal challenges to segregation pursued by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). King was a dynamic force within the SCLC, emerging as its leading fund-raiser and as a skillful political tactician who successfully forged alliances with
pressure fire hoses against peaceful demonstrators, many of them schoolchildren. The images horrified the nation. King was arrested during these demonstrations and from his jail cell produced “Letter from Birmingham City Jail,” in which he argued that one who breaks an unjust law to arouse the consciousness of his community “is in reality expressing the highest respect for law,” provided he acts “openly, lovingly and with a willingness to accept the penalty.” That August, African-American leaders organized the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Before
an estimated quarter-million civil rights supporters gathered at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, King offered one of the most powerful orations in American history. Generations of schoolchildren have learned by heart lines from the “I Have a Dream” speech, in which King prayed for the day when people would “not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” The images from Birmingham and Washington helped crystallize support for the Civil Rights Act of 1964, signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson July 2, 1964. In 1965, the violent Selma, Ala., police response to a voting rights march sparked a similar surge in support for King, the civil rights movement and for legislation guaranteeing the right of political participation. Consequently, the Voting Rights Act became law Aug. 6, 1965. With the passage of these civil rights laws, King continued to employ his strategy of nonviolent social protest even as some younger leaders at times argued for more radical means. King also broadened his agenda to encompass efforts to focus attention on African-American poverty. King was in Memphis, Tenn., in support of striking black garbage workers when, on April 4, 1968, an assassin’s bullet cut him down at the age of 39. Americans honor the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. with a national holiday celebrated on the third Monday of each January, and by a national monument, constructed in sight of the Lincoln Memorial, where King inspired Americans with his dreams of racial justice and equality. Countless individuals and organizations, including The King Center in Atlanta, carry on his work.
Pensacola’s Martin Luther King Parade is scheduled for 11 a.m. Jan. 19. The parade begins at the corner of Spring and Garden streets and turns north on Palafox before making a u-turn at Wright Street to go south on Palafox. It ends at the corner of Palafox and Main Street. For more information, call 490-7696.

which the city’s African-Americans refused to patronize its segregated bus system. King led the organization directing the boycott and became the movement’s public face, appealing to white Americans’ spirit of brotherhood. When the federal courts, following the reasoning of the Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education decision, declared the bus segregation law unconstitutional, King emerged as a national figure.

NATTC recognizes top Sailors, instructors Story, photo by Lt. Cmdr. Troy Sallee NATTC PAO
aval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) recognized its 2014 top instructors and Sailors from its schools during a ceremony at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola recently. Selected as Junior and Senior Sailor of the Year (SoY) were AWR2 Michael Whitlock II and AC1 Kelly Nelson. The Junior Instructor of the Year (IoY) was ABH2 Alec Weeks, the MidGrade IoY was AT1 Angel Rodriguez-Martinez and the Senior IoY was ACC Marcanthony Gutierrez. Capt. Alan Dean, NATTC commanding officer, congratulated the awardees and noted that the competition for SoY and IoYs was keen. “There are so many quality Sailors at this command that it is very, very tough to choose the winners,” said Dean. “You should be proud of your selection. Congratulations and well done.” He also took a moment to speak to the family and friends of the selectees who were present at the ceremony.
“Thank you for your support,” said Dean. “This is not an easy job and your backing is so important to enable them to accomplish what they have. The encouragement and dedication you provide translates into improved performance while at work.” Gutierrez, who worked as the aviation electronics technician I-strand leading chief petty officer, echoed Dean’s remarks. “I wouldn’t be here if not for the senior instructors who mentored me and took me under their wing,” said Gutierrez. “The best part is that now I get to show the junior personnel that earning an award like this is achievable if they are willing to work hard.” Weeks described how it felt and exactly what kind of effort it took to be selected as IoY.
The Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Sailors and instructors of the year were recognized during a ceremony held in NATTC’s mega building onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. Award recipients were, from left to right, Junior SoY AWR2 Michael Whitlock II, Senior SoY AC1 Kelly Nelson, Junior IoY ABH2 Alec Weeks, Mid-Grade IoY AT1 Angel Rodriguez-Martinez and Senior IoY ACC Marcanthony Gutierrez.
“It feels amazing to be recognized today,” Weeks said. “It took a lot of hard work, study, focusing on skills and teaching all day every day. It’s been an honor to lead the future of the Navy in the right direction and to pass on knowledge to future troops that they will use every day.” Dean noted that the other Sailors’ achievements were equally remarkable, and all certainly deserved the recognition. With nearly 500 active-duty staff members at NATTC, these Sailors represent the top 1 percent of a highly professional and knowledgeable group of Sailors.
For more than 70 years, NATTC has been providing training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy, Marine and international students annually. The majority of the student body comprises enlisted personnel attending “A” schools, where they gain the knowledge and skills required to perform in the fleet as technicians at the apprentice level. Advanced schools provide higher-level technical knowledge for senior petty officers, and specialty schools offer specific skills not particular to any one rating, such as airman ap-
prentice training, maintenance, personal financial management and shipboard aircraft firefighting. NATTC also conducts technical training for officers in aviation fuels, carrier air traffic control center operations, aircraft launch and recovery equipment, shipboard aircraft firefighting and amphibious air traffic control center operations.

Welcome to GOSPORT. Ever wonder why it’s called GOSPORT? 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.

Initiative launched to support Healthy Weight Month From Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center Public Affairs
PORTSMOUTH, Va. (NNS) – The Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) has announced the launch of its weight management initiative as part of Healthy Weight Month. The initiative encourages Sailors, Marines, their families and health educators to access relevant healthy eating, active living, and psychological and emotional well-being resources that help achieve and maintain a healthy weight. The timing of the announcement is aligned with NMCPHC’s Healthy Weight Month and the New Year, New You Month observed by the Military Health System and Navy Medicine. “Addressing healthy weight is important for Sailors and Marines because ex-
ceeding body composition assessment (BCA) standards can negatively affect their career and compromise mission readiness,” said Cmdr. Connie Scott, the Health Promotion and Wellness department head at NMCPHC. “Exceeding BCA can also be an impediment to readiness because extra pounds can decrease quality of life and increase health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke and some types of cancer.” In support of the Secretary of the Navy’s (SecNav) 21st Century Sailor & Marine Initiative, NMCPHC’s Healthy Weight Month increases awareness about the benefits of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, and offers re-
sources that equip Sailors and Marines to take charge of their weight management by developing life-long healthy behaviors including healthy eating, active living, and psychological and emotional wellbeing. Weight management is part of the spectrum of wellness that maximizes each Sailor’s and Marine’s personal readiness. Resources offered include a comprehensive listing of posters and infographics; fact sheets; brochures; and interactive tools, including quizzes and games developed by both NMCPHC and other leading health organizations. Newly created NMCPHC materials include a 31-day challenge for a healthier life, a fact sheet series on sup-
plements and a food log. Sailors and Marines can also achieve weight management goals with the ShipShape Program, the official Navy weight management program that assists active duty and reserve military service members, beneficiaries and government civilians with making healthy behavior changes in order to lose weight. The program consists of eight sessions that focus on three important components for weight management: mindset, nutrition, and physical activity. The ShipShape Program is highly recommended for active duty personnel who have failed or are at risk of failing their BCA standards.

SAPR 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.
