Richardson documented naval aviation’s beginnings From NASP PAO

Walter Leroy Richardson, the man known as the “Father of Naval Photography,” was born in Princeton Depot, Mass., Aug. 21, 1889. His love for photography developed while still in high school with the purchase of a mail order camera kit. After enlisting in the Navy Nov. 1, 1911, Richardson was assigned to the USS Mississippi (BB 23) as a ship’s cook fourth class. The 25-year-old amateur photographer was snapping pictures as the battleship steamed into the debris-littered Pensacola Bay Jan. 20, 1914. The Mississippi’s commanding officer, Lt. Cmdr. Henry C. Mustin, was tasked with delivering the naval aviation unit (from Annapolis, Md.) that would convert the old shipyard into the Navy’s first Naval Aeronautic Station and Flying School. Richardson’s love of photography and tinkering with machinery brought him to the attention of Lt. j.g. John Towers, the officer in charge of the historic naval air detachment. Convinced that Richardson’s skills were of great value to the naval air service, Towers requested that Richardson be permanently assigned as the official station photographer. Mustin agreed, and Richardson’s rating was changed to aviation mechanic because no photographic rating existed at the time. With the official blessings of Mustin and Towers, Richardson set up a crude photo lab in a storage room and set out to formally document all aspects of the early stages of naval aviation. Each time Richardson turned in a photograph, Towers became a little more impressed with the former cook’s photographic talents and value. By early 1915, Richardson’s photographic tasking increased tremendously as he made photographic

NEX lowers prices on everyday household items By Kristine M. Sturkie Navy Exchange Service Command Public Affairs

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) – The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) announced Jan. 13 that it has lowered prices on nearly 240 everyday household items to better serve its Sailors and their families. Customers will see new lower prices on items such as

laundry detergent, bleach, fabric softeners, paper towels and bath tissue. Customers can expect to see lower prices on additional household items in the future. “We know these are items our customers buy on a regular basis and so we re-evaluated our pricing

records of all aircraft tests, instrument installations, aircraft accidents, and the wide variety of other activities associated with the beginnings of naval aviation. He also worked tirelessly with the Navy’s first naval aviators to perfect aerial photographic methods and in testing equipment submitted to the Navy by a variety of inventors and manufacturers. During this time, Richardson made the first U.S. Naval aerial photographs while flying in a Curtiss single-engine open-seat seaplane with a 5-inch-by-7-inch dry plate camera. It soon became obvious that there was a need for a dedicated aerial camera to meet the Navy’s new aerial reconnaissance mission. Working from the requirements and specs developed by Richardson, the Eastman Kodak Company created the first handheld aerial oblique camera; the Model A, in August 1915. It was equipped with a highspeed lens, suitable for photography at attitudes between 1,000 and 2,000 feet. When the United States entered World War I in April 1917, military requirements for photography increased dramatically. Army and Navy observers in Europe sent back impressive reports on the value of reconnaissance and combat photography to military decision makers. Now that America was in the war, both services decided to organize their own photographic divisions. The Navy determined that Richardson was the right man to head up its photographic division. In November 1917, he was promoted to (aviation) machinist’s mate first class and given orders to attend the newly established

Vol. 78, No. 2

Army Aerial Photography School at Langley Field, Va. Before departing, he was promoted to chief machinist’s mate. Within days of completing the Army course, Richardson reported to the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., with orders to establish a photographic section. He was discharged from the Navy Jan. 2, 1918, and immediately commissioned as an ensign in the Naval Reserve Flying Corps. He then organized the photographic section and prepared plans for a Naval School of Aerial Photography, the first school that would eventually be consolidated with others into the U.S. Naval Schools of Photography. As the Navy’s first photographic officer, Richardson visualized a Navy photographic organization that could be called upon to cover photographic assignments aboard ships and at shore stations, as well as satisfy the Navy’s ever-increasing demand for aerial photography. By April 1918, Richardson had earned his wings as a Navy pilot (naval aviator No. 582) so he could personally fly his students on aerial assignments. As a result of Richardson’s foresight, direction and leadership, the rating of photographer, capable of meeting the needs of both naval aviation and the general service, was officially established July 1, 1921. The former ship’s cook was honorably discharged from military service Jan. 1, 1926 and took a position as the civilian head of the photographic section in the Bureau of Aeronautics. In 1932, he was designated senior scientist and photographic inspector for the Bureau of Aeronautics, a position he held until his death June 14, 1945.

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

around Medical Home Port,” said Lt. Kevin Bernstein, a chief resident, NHP. Bernstein led the initiative to include NHP in the database and spent many hours submitting information about the residency program to PCPCC. “We are training people within a successful model here,” said Bernstein. “That model is good for civilian hospitals to use as well as military treatment facilities.” Sharing of information and successful models is the basis of the database, which is open to everyone at www.pcpcc.org/training. The database is searchable and includes detailed information on existing training programs to include formal curricula, educational components and core competencies that support teambased care delivery like Medical Home Port. The news of the inclusion on PCPCC’s database came at the same time it was announced that NHP’s Family Medicine Residency Program will be dissolving by 2016. Despite this news, Bernstein, along with his fellow residents, can take pride in knowing they learned patient-centered care at one of the most successful Medical Home Port programs in the Navy. “I am proud to be part of this program,” said Bernstein, who will graduate next summer. “We (all of the residents) believe that until the residency program is closed for good, residents here will receive the training to be the best doctors to operate within the Medical Home Port model.”

6-year-old gets ‘dream’ VIP tour of NAS Pensacola Photos, story by Jill Dewhurst Mother of Will Dewhurst

Will loves fighter planes, aircraft carriers, fighter planes, battleships and fighter planes. The Children’s Dream Fund arranged for Will to become an honorary Blue Angel Dec. 910. (The Blue Angels are the Navy’s awesome demonstration flight squadron.) From the time we arrived at NAS Pensacola, Will was treated like a VIP. Here are some highlights: • Day one: After a police escort to the National Naval Aviation Museum, Will could not stop smiling. Our museum visit included gifts, climbing into aircraft cockpits, a Blue Angel flight simulator ride, an Aircraft Carrier Experience, a tour of the IMAX projection room, lunch at the Cubi Bar Café and an IMAX Blues training film. While that alone would have been awesome, the best was yet to come. We were escorted to the Blue Angels headquarters. As we pulled into the parking area, the one vacant space had a sign reading, “Blue Angels – Will Dewhurst.” The team had parked two Blue Angel FA-18 jets in the hangar for us to see. As we got closer, I noticed the pilot’s name under the cockpit canopy read “WILL DE-

WHURST.” They had put our son’s name on a Blue Angel plane. Having obtained permission from the squadron commander ahead of time, the airframe specialist led Will up to sit in the cockpit, where he was belted in, and got to wear a real Blue Angel helmet. As if that wasn’t enough, Will and his brother, Matthew, got to climb into the cockpit of the C-130 Fat Albert and got a tour from the crew’s flight engineer. Then, we were off to meet the enlisted Blue Angel support team, and then to meet the squadron’s leader, Cmdr. Tom Frosch, the pilot of Blue Angel No. 1. As the boys talked to him, the other pilots came in to sign a model Blue Angel helmet and a plaque for Will, and give both boys pins. The commander even put pins on Will’s

had his name on it, he was going to take it home. • Day two: After another police escort – this time to the Training Wing Six hangar – the boys toured the training jets and prop planes used to train pilots. Both boys took a turn in the fighter simulator (FA-18), where Will landed and took off from a carrier. Next was a tour of the air traffic control radar room and tower, where the boys each talked to pilots on the ground, giving them taxiing instructions. The Blue Angels landed

after a morning in Jacksonville and they had been given a heads up that the boys were in the tower. The Blues arrived in diamond formation and broke right in front of the tower window. So awesome. We all enjoyed lunch in the Jet Port Café, where the flight students eat, before heading to the fire and rescue center. The firefighters pulled the boys into a briefing and they were assigned to a fire engine. The boys rode in the front seat while the firefighters responded to a mock plane fire and fired the water cannons at a C-130. Once the “fire” was out, the fire trucks took us to the main fire station on base and the boys and their father, Bob, got to take a ride 40 feet up in the bucket of a ladder truck. After that adventure, the firefighters took us into their station for cake and goodies, including shirts with the boy’s names embroidered on them. For the dream’s finale, Will and Matthew were escorted to meet NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins in his office. As a former Blue Angel pilot, he had his helmet there, which he placed on Will’s head. The captain also gave both boys one of his challenge coins for their new collection. What a dream.

Former President George H.W. Bush made honorary Blue Angel From Naval History and Heritage Command

W

hen it comes to jumping out of airplanes for birthday celebrations, former President George Herbert Walker Bush has been there, done that. Have an aircraft carrier named after you? Check that as well. But now No. 41 can add another accolade to his many accomplishments: “Blue Angel, Honorary.” On Jan. 10, Bush was given the honor by the elite Navy flying squad based on his reputation and long history of excellence, selflessness, dedication and service with honor, according to the Blue Angels spokesperson, who added, Bush is now considered a member of the Blue Angels team. It is Bush’s dedication to duty and selfless service that is his legacy. It was instilled in him from an early age. His father, Sen. Prescott Bush, stressed responsibility and duty, while his mother, Dorothy Walker Bush, taught all of her children humility by emphasizing service to others above all else. Bush was in his senior year of high school at Phillips Academy at Andover, Mass., when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941. On his 18th birthday, June 12, 1942, Bush became a seaman second class rather than going to Yale University to which he had already been accepted. Bush would later credit his time serving in the military – especially during war – with making a man out of him. Since the Navy was waiving the two-year college requirement for officers, Bush chose to become an aviator. On June 9, 1943, just three days before his

He completed his mission before turning the plane out to sea and telling his crew to “hit the silk.” “The cockpit was full of smoke and I was choking from it. I glanced at the wings and noticed that they were on fire … I am now beginning to think that perhaps some of the fragments may have either killed the two in back, or possibly knocked out their communications.” During his bail out, Bush’s head struck the tail of the plane, leaving him bloodied. After climbing into his life raft, Bush looked for signs of Delaney and White. Seeing none, he cried. “It bothers me so very much,”

19th birthday, he received his wings at Corpus Christi, Texas, becoming the youngest Navy fighter pilot of World War II. His thoughts were captured in his prolific and insightful letters to his parents throughout his military years, later compiled in a book called “All the Best, George Bush.” “I cannot wait,” he wrote of his anxiousness of getting out to the battle front. “Not because of the glamour or the thrills – for heaven knows I love my home like few others – but because it is my job, clearly defined and it must be done.” By March 1944, Bush and his Torpedo Squadron 51 (VT-51) assigned to the light aircraft carrier USS San Jacinto (CVL 30) were sailing to the South Pacific as part of Task Force 58/38. “I’ve learned a good deal out here – lots that’s not practical by

a long shot – but it all goes to making a man out of one,” Bush wrote his parents June 10, 1944, just two days shy of his 20th birthday. Two weeks later, during the Battle of the Philippine Sea, he was forced to make a tail-first water landing after an engine failed with the plane loaded down with four bombs. All of the crew got out safely into the life raft before the plane exploded. Bush’s mood was uncharacteristically somber in a letter dated Sept. 3, 1944. “Yesterday was a day which will long stand in my memory,” he wrote. Bush was on a mission to bomb Chichi Jima radio installations, with Radioman 2nd Class John Delaney, and Lt. j.g. William “Ted” White as his gunner. Bush’s Avenger was struck by Japanese anti-aircraft shells.

he wrote. “I did tell them and when I bailed out I felt that they must have gone, and yet now I feel so terribly responsible for their fate.” After a couple of hours, Bush finally saw a periscope. “You can imagine how happy I was when I saw this submarine hove into view. They pulled me out of the raft and took me below where they fixed me up in grand style.” Bush was with USS Finback (SS 230) for 30 days, then flown to Pearl Harbor. Although he could have rotated home, Bush rejoined his squadron Nov. 2, 1944. After the war ended, Bush was discharged in September 1945, having flown 58 combat missions, 1,208 hours of flying time and 126 carrier landings. He received the Distinguished Flying Cross for heroism under fire,

three Air Medals and the Presidential Unit citation with the USS San Jacinto. Of the 14 pilots who began with VT-51, only four returned home. After graduating from Yale with a degree in economics and starting his own oil company, Bush returned to public service, including two terms as a representative from Texas in the U.S. Congress; ambassador to the United Nations; chief of the U.S. Liaison Office to China and director of the Central Intelligence Agency. After eight years as vice president with the late President Ronald Reagan, Bush was elected president in 1988. During his presidency, Bush and a coalition of nearly 30 other nations ended Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait during Operation Desert Storm. Since retiring from public service in 1993, Bush continued his humanitarian work, most notably with former President Bill Clinton raising aid for 2005 Hurricane Katrina victims and the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. On Jan. 10, 2009. the final Nimitz-class aircraft carrier was placed into commission bearing his name, USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77). During the ceremony he spoke to the commissioning crew saying, “I wish I was sitting right out there with you ready to start the adventures of my naval aviation career all over.” President Barack Obama honored Bush with the 2010 Medal of Freedom, the highest award given to a civilian, for his 70 years of public service. “His life is a testament that public service is a noble calling,” Obama said during the Feb. 15, 2011 ceremony at the White House. “Like the remarkable Barbara Bush, his humility and his decency reflects the very best of the American spirit. This is a gentleman.” Fitting words to describe a former naval officer and the Navy’s newest Blue Angel.

Cancer fight is personal for Whiting MA By Ens. Lindsey Stevenson NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Office

H

earing of a child struggling against a severe and debilitating brain cancer is a story that leaves one questioning, “Why?” For a Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Sailor recovering from his own brain injuries, the important question was, “How can I help?” MA2 Daniel Devine was injured when a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device detonated in close proximity to him about two years ago while he was on IA deployment in Khost, Afghanistan. He sustained traumatic brain injury and permanent occipital nerve damage, and was told there was a high probability of being medically retired. However, he desired to return to full duty and ultimately redeploy to Afghanistan for a fourth tour. After months of hard work, he has recently been cleared for full duty. Part of the inspiration for his recovery was learning that his 4-year-old nephew, David, was battling his own illness. “The news of my nephew broke while I was receiving treatment for my war injuries and I wanted to help in any way possible,” Devine said. “The best way I could assist was by raising funds for hospitals that were taking care of him and other children like him.” A little more than a year ago, David was taken in for an MRI for suspected autism. Instead, a large mass was found on the back of his brain. A few days later at Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, he was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, an aggressive and highly malignant cancer of the brain and spinal cord. After more tumors were

found on his brain and spine, David’s family and doctors decided it would be best for him to continue treatment through St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. So when Devine heard of the opportunity to raise money and awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, he began rallying. In February 2013, Devine and his wife, Samantha, signed up to participate in the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon and have been raising money ever since. In April, when Devine had completely healed from his injuries, he and his wife began training for the half marathon. They ran at least two miles every day, and 13.5 miles every Saturday.

On Nov. 9, 2013, Devine and his wife completed the half marathon in Orlando, taking 553th and 554th place out of more than 14,000 competitors. They took donations all the way up until the day of the race amounting to almost $3,000. St. Jude is still accepting donations on their behalf, and they have since raised more than $500 through http:// fundraising. stjude.org/site/TR/Heroes/Heroes?team_id=36100 &pg=team&fr_id=4960. The St. Jude’s team of 30 runners raised more than $100,000 in donation for the 2013 race. “I began running during my treatment, and I was in tremendous pain,” Devine said. “When I needed strength, I would think of David and wonder how someone so small can push through so many struggles and still smile. As my nephew progressed, his strength gave me strength.” Any team member who finished the half marathon had all funds they raised go directly to St. Jude’s Hospital, through Disney World. Donations to St. Jude offset family expenses, fund research for treating childhood cancer and other deadly diseases, as well as help improve morale around the hospital. “My nephew loves Batman. Like, loves Batman,” Devine said. “They were able to get

him a Batman IV bag protector and a cape. The money isn’t just for medicine. It helps make the kids happy.” Devine also had a unique surprise in store for his wife at the end of the race. He originally had proposed to her while on tour in Afghanistan and was unable to do it in person. So after running the entire race with a ring bouncing around in his pocket, he got down on one knee at the finish line to surprise her. “Proposing was one thing I’ve wanted to do in our four years of marriage, I just never found the right time to do it,” he said. “This race was a huge accomplishment for her because she’s never really ran that far and she pushed herself so hard. I was so proud of her.

I wanted to make the race even more special.” While this was the first sponsored race Devine and his wife have entered, he’s certain there will be many more in his future. The hospital has asked to sponsor him again in the future. “I plan on doing many more and running the Boston Marathon, too, for St. Jude,” he said. “It was an amazing experience I won’t forget. I cannot express how happy I am to be able to get St. Jude’s name out and to run for such a great cause.” According to Devine, David’s recent surgery to remove tumors went well. His latest MRI showed no new growths and he is still fighting with a smile on his face.

Jan. 20, Americans celebrate the achievements of

Civil rights giant fought for principles with universal applicability From http://iipdigital.usembassy.gov

A

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 2014, it falls on Jan. 20. In 2009, King’s birthday was 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 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. 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 sympathetic Northern whites. In 1959, King traveled to India, where he met with followers of

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service: Jan. 20, 2014 From http://mlkday.gov

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’ ” Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. Jan. 20 will mark the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday. This milestone is an opportunity for Americans to honor King’s legacy through service. The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We

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-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.”

Gosling Games Coloring ‘Remember MLK’

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.

N

aval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) has named HM1 Lanna Begnaud, a command career counselor, as its 2013 Enterprise Sailor of the Year. The Sailor of the Year program recognizes Sailors who have done outstanding work throughout the entire year. “The Enterprise Sailor of the Year program is a great way to recognize Sailors that are doing great things,” said CMC Douglas Sprague of NHP. “She’s already affected a lot of Sailors as the command career counselor. She touches every Sailor in terms of career development boards, reenlistments and school packages.” As a command career counselor, Begnaud provides career counseling to more than 800 Sailors throughout NHP, including 10 branch clinics. She is part of a team that has the number one career development program in the Navy Medicine East region, per a recent Navy Medicine East inspection. Along with her regular job,

Begnaud was also able to complete 29 credit hours toward her master’s degree in business administration and was the site coordinator for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program at NHP. During this past year, she has also served as a member of the command training team, command assessment team and the Pensacola area Navy Ball committee. She also spends her time out in the community helping with programs that feed the homeless, maintain the community and support local teens. “You can never really do too much community service,” Begnaud said. “The local community supports us; we have to support them back.” While this year has been one

of great accomplishments for Begnaud, it was not always easy. “This has been a really tough year for me, so to be able to be selected as (the Enterprise Sailor of the Year) is just wonderful,” said Begnaud, a native of Lafayette, La. Begnaud became a foster parent during her tour at NHP, and in July 2011, she was given custody of a baby boy who was just 32 days old. She cared for him and had intentions of

adopting him, but she had to give him back to the state in February so that a family member could adopt him. The child was then 19 months old. “It was very tough to have to do that,” said Begnaud. “I almost felt like I had lost a child and was still expected to do my work and be a role model with a smiling face.” Begnaud used this experience to better herself and be there for others. “I choose to make myself a

better path instead of a destructive one,” said Begnaud. “Being selected (as the Sailor of the Year) proved that I reached my goal. I did what I set out to do in February, which was to make myself better in every aspect of my life.” As the 2013 Enterprise Sailor of the Year for NHP, Begnaud represented NHP for Navy Medicine East’s Sailor of the Year program and will receive a Navy Commendation Medal.

Service members urged to organize paperwork for tax season By Terri Moon Cronk American Forces Press Service

W

ASHINGTON, D.C. (NNS) – With the arrival of tax season, service members should begin gathering documentation to file their 2013 taxes, the director of the Pentagon’s office of family policy and children and youth said. In an interview with American Forces Press Service and the Pentagon Channel, Barbara Thompson suggested visiting the Military OneSource website ( w w w. M i l i t a r y O n e Site.mil) for tax filing re-

sources, and to learn what will be necessary to file, such as W2 forms, Social Security numbers and receipts for deductions such as child care, education, medical expenses and donations, among other write-offs.

Advertise with us! Call Simone Sands at 433-1166 ext. 21

And tax preparers at Military OneSource will do short-form tax filing free of charge for service members and their families, Thompson said. Relocations and deployments have tax implications, Thompson noted. For example, deployed service members can receive an extension to file taxes after the normal April 15 filing date, she said. “It’s very helpful to have someone who is experienced to help you through the cumbersome issue of taxes and tax returns,” she added.

The tax preparers at Military OneSource are up to date on changes in tax laws, and can answer military-specific questions, Thompson said. Installations also offer volunteer income tax assistance to service members and their families, Thompson said. She advised that service members organize their taxes by starting a file beginning each Jan. 1 for the following year’s tax papers, such as receipts and other write-offs. “You don’t want to wait until the last minute,” she said.

Service members and families who prepare long-form taxes with deductions such as mortgages and rental properties might want to consider hiring a tax expert to file for them, Thompson said. “It’s best to get advice to make sure you have everything covered,” she added. Filing tax returns usually results in either a refund or money owed back to the government. Service members who receive a tax refund face important decisions on what to do

with the money, Thompson said. “Do you use it to buy down debt, or put it in a savings account?” she asked, advising people to not blow their tax refunds in a spending frenzy of unnecessary purchases. A tax refund also can be deposited into a retirement savings account, she added. “It’s important to think about what you’re going to do with that money,” she advised, “and how you can best utilize it for your financial well-being.”
