CNP visits NAS Pensacola Navy’s training command briefs Chief of Naval Personnel on its systematic approach to develop quality training Story, photo by Steve Vanderwerff NETC PAO

Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP), Vice Adm. Scott Van Buskirk, visited Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) Jan. 11. After meeting with Rear Adm. Don Quinn, NETC’s commander, and NETC’s FORCM April Beldo, he was briefed by

Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Scott Van Buskirk, left, discusses with Rear Adm. Don Quinn, commander, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) systematic approaches which ensure quality training.

Cmdr. Joseph Finn, NETC’s director of Learning and Development (N7), about the Human Performance Requirements Review (HPRR) process. Finn explained to Van Buskirk how NETC uses HPPR’s to review training so it meets current and future fleet requirements, and gives Sailors the opportunity to voice concerns regarding individual rate training, and the enlisted community’s health, by allowing direct access to community managers and system experts. Conducted on a regular basis, NETC’s learning centers have broad guidance to

tailor the process to meet unique enterprise requirements. After Finn’s detailed explanation of the process, Capt. Terry Burt, commanding officer of the Center for Naval Air Technical Training Center (CNATT), described their success in the process, which includes identifying training gaps, enabling communication, having a repeatable process, creating working solutions locally where possible, having HPRR process management pushed to the site level and the efficient allocation of resources to readiness. “I was glad to have the opportunity to discuss CNATT’S success with Vice Adm. Van Buskirk,” Burt said. “We’ve done a lot of work over the last two years to build this process across aviation and its really starting to pay off for us. It’s something the fleet needed and in these very tight times with resources it certainly gives us a focus on what’s the most important thing to fix and impact readiness.” Van Buskirk was pleased by CNATT’s success and how it has affected fleet readiness. “Quality training is crucial to fleet readiness, and Naval Education and Training Command’s Human Performance Requirements Review process is integral to the development and updating of that training,” said Van Buskirk. “During a HPRR, training commands work with fleet experts to complete a comprehensive review of existing training against validated fleet requirements, system and platform requirements and community or career management needs. Capt. Burt and his team across the CNATT operations have built a strong positive relationship with stakeholders in squadrons and across the fleet in support of this essential program. The results have included improvements in aircraft and weapon systems maintenance in platforms throughout the fleet.”

Hours extended for flu vaccine From Jason Bortz NHP PAO

For those who have not had their annual flu vaccine, it’s not too late. Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) will have extended hours at its immunization clinic to allow all TRICARE Prime beneficiaries the opportunity to receive the influenza vaccine. The extended hours

for the clinic will be Jan. 22-23 from 5-7 p.m. The immunization clinic can also administer the vaccine to TRICARE Prime beneficiaries during normal business hours without an appointment, M o n d a y s through Fridays from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. While not 100 percent effective, a flu vaccine is the best way to prevent influenza. Individuals can

also minimize catching the flu by washing hands or using hand sanitizer frequently and keeping hands away from the face. Covering the mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing and sneezing, or coughing or sneezing into the upper sleeve or elbow and not the hands, can also help reduce the spread of diseases. For more information, contact the NHP Immunization Clinic at 505-6257.

It’s tax season. Many people have questions for the Navy’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program and VITA is happy to answer those questions. This year, clients are using self-service at all VITA sites. Although this may be new to some, it’s been in existence now for about five years and became mandatory starting in 2012 (tax year 2011). Some of you may

have noticed or experienced the change last year. The new program is expected to reduce staffing by 50 percent than full-service, traditional VITA. Why the change? The purpose of the Navy tax assistance program is to primarily assist junior enlisted personnel with their tax preparation. In the past, VITA has been able to offer one-onone tax preparation to

customers based on ample staff and support this service. Over the past several years, the number of volunteers has decreased and demand for full-service tax assistance has decreased, given the introduction of alternate, online tax assistance preparation. VITA understands the change in manner and scope of tax services provided under the new self-service model may create confusion and possible frustration for repeat Tax Assistance Center’s (TAC) customers who have come to expect full-service tax preparation. The VITA program has evolved over time to best meet mission requirements while addressing practical manning and budgetary realities. What is meant by “self-service?” The self-service program is centered on Tax Assistance Centers equipped with computer stations, where customers prepare their own tax returns with the assistance of a core group of volunteers. These volunteers act as “floor monitors” and assist up to four or five customers at

“This brief showed me that CNATT is living up to the NETC motto – Fleet Readiness Starts Here.” According to Quinn, Van Buskirk’s visit to NETC was important because it gave him a better understanding of the process in place to develop new training and identify training shortfalls. “The brief gave CNP a better understanding of the structured recurring process we use to encourage and capture fleet feedback,” he said. “That’s what the whole HPRR process is about. When people talk about training not being good enough, they should know that there are already communication paths in place for the fleet to weigh in and a lot of automatic triggers that cause us to revisit our training curricula.” Quinn also says that it’s important to get the word out to the fleet about HPPRs. “There’s a very rigorous process that’s available and easy to use. We expend a lot of time and effort to make sure people are aware and we’re also working hard to make it less labor intensive. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel every time someone identifies a training deficiency. We expect changes to occur, based on the rate of technological change in each warfare area,” Quinn said.

adjacent computer terminals simultaneously. Customers prepare their own returns online. A primary goal of selfservice is to educate our customers so that they will understand and have the ability to complete their own tax returns. To promote that goal, all customers are required to use self-service, including retirees. Who are eligible for services? • Active-duty U.S. military members. • Retired members entitled to retired/retainer pay and or military disability/VA compensation with an adjusted gross income (AGI) of $57,000 or less. • Dependent family members of the above. • Reserve U.S. military members on active-duty for 30 days or more. • Reserve U.S. military members on active duty for 29 days or less, in cases of emergency. • Reserve U.S. military members during pre-mobilization. • Reserve U.S. military members up to 30 days after demobilization.

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,

What program or software do I use? Military OneSource is the default program for all TACs because it offers the most support at no cost to the servicemember and there are no income limitations. This service is available for all active-duty, guard and reserve personnel and their families. Personnel are able to file their federal and up to five state returns using the H&R Block at Home tax software. For retirees and other eligible personnel, My Free Taxes, a United Way Sponsored program is the recommended Free File Alliance program. They have also partnered with H&R Block. When visitors log on to the MyFreeTaxes.com website and click on the icon to begin to do taxes, it will take them directly to H&R Block’s website. In short, H&R Block will be the software used at the TACs this year. Are there income restrictions/adjusted gross income limitations? For active-duty military personnel and reserve, there are no income restrictions or adjusted gross income limitations. However, retirees and former spouses whose AGI is more than $57,000, or who have self-employment income (Schedule C), capital gains and losses (Schedule D), rental and royalty income (Schedule E), farm income (Schedule F) and shareholder/partnership income or loss (Schedule K-1) will not be able to utilize the self-service program. They will be referred to a commercial tax preparation service, encouraged to use online software which may require a fee for using their service online, i.e. Turbo Tax, Tax Slayer, etc. or will be referred to a nonmilitary alternate full-service VITA program, such as AARP’s VITA Program or United Way’s VITA Program.

Frequently asked questions for selfservice VITAs: “What if I’m physically unable to complete my taxes online?” Customers who are physically unable to complete their taxes online should call the VITA tax centers to find out service availability and/or alternate full-service VITA programs in the area, such as AARP’s VITA Program or United Way’s VITA Program. “What if a customer has difficulty using the self-service program?” As stated, self-service is mandatory at TACs in Pensacola and within the United States. If a customer has difficulty utilizing the self-service program, the TAC volunteer will assist that customer using the selfservice tax preparation program. Customers will not be given full-service VITA simply because they are having difficulties with self-service or refuse to have self-service. The policy is that the volunteer will continue to assist the customer utilizing the self-service program. This ensures that the customers learn the most about how to do their own taxes, and it encourages the next customer to also do the same. “What is a customer qualifies for tax assistance services, but does not qualify for Military OneSource (retiree) and has an AGI of $57,000 and cannot file free using programs through the United Way’s My Free Taxes website or IRS Free File Alliance?” The purpose of the Navy tax assistance program is to primarily assist junior enlisted personnel with their tax preparation. The Navy does not set income limits for programs operating under the IRS Free File Alliance. Individuals who do not qualify for Military OneSource and also do not qualify for the United Way’s MyFreeTaxes and other IRS Free File Alliances should seek alternative tax assistance, such as Tax Slayer, Turbo Tax, and other low-cost tax preparation software or should seek to use a nonmilitary VITA program in their area that may be able to assist him/her. All VITA sites will have a list of these programs in the area with telephone numbers, hours or operation, and physical addresses. Tax center phones are being installed at this time and phone numbers will soon be avilable; more information is available at this time by calling 4524488, ext. 3137.

Dirty secrets of the modern housewife exposed By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

Every morning at about 9 a.m., a little ray of sunshine comes through the window of my kitchen and ruins my life. It taunts me, mocks me, and points a gleaming spotlight directly on my flaws, exposing them to the world. I am not sure if that beam of light is a random act of nature, or a call to action. All I know is that it shines right on what I thought was my relatively clean floor, clearly magnifying a shocking amount of dog hair, fuzz, crumbs and dirt. Each time this truth is revealed, I grimace and run to the laundry room to grab the broom, a mop and a dustpan. As the shaft of light moves around the room, I follow it, frantically extracting the newly discovered filth. Some days, I wonder if my reaction to this exposure is healthy. Do a few crumbs really matter in the whole scheme of things? Is there something wrong with me because I want my floor to be clean? Am I “anal-retentive?” Do I have OCD? Throughout the years, philosophies on the importance of cleanliness have run the gamut. The best-known adage, “cleanliness is next to godliness,” has biblical roots, and similar proverbs about the spiritual benefits of being physically clean are found in both the Talmud and the

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 19 years (and running). Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. Molinari and her family are currently stationed at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, Fla. Koran. Now that leprosy and the plague are no longer a worry, the maxims of modern society attach a negative stigma to cleanliness as if it were a dis-

ease itself. Refrigerator magnets tell us, “Immaculate homes are run by dull women.” Paperweights and coffee cups suggest, “An untidy desk is a sign of genius.” Sometime in the 1980s, use of the Freudian term “anal retentive” became trendy, showing up in “you might be” lists and Saturday Night Live skits making fun of people who thrive on order and control. Similarly, the psychological label “obsessive-compulsive disorder” has become a part of pop culture, as evidenced by the fact that it is the primary feature in current TV shows such as “Monk,” “Obsessed,” and “The OCD Project.” Today, one can’t wash one’s hands without being labeled a “germophobe.” One can’t dust the knick knacks for the risk of being branded dull and boring. One can’t reorganize the junk drawer without being called “anal-retentive” or “OCD.” But, do these popular terms really just provide the Me Generation with another excuse to be selfish by implying that cleanliness is a sign of dysfunction or lifelessness? During a bunco game last week, some fellow military wives and I chatted during a break in play. “I hate dusting,” I said, and a few others agreed.

“How about stubble in the sink, drives me crazy.” “But hair on the bathroom floor is the worst,” another wife offered, and we all gave approving nods. “Guys don’t even notice. There could be tumbleweeds of hair rolling around on the tile, and he will still stand there, obliviously rubbing his hairy rear end with a towel.” Shaking our heads, we all felt her pain. The banter went on, covering issues such as the dehydrated peas and carrots under the fridge, the dust on the fan blades, the unmentionable substances behind the toilet seat and gloppy hairballs in the drains. We all agreed that there is nothing more satisfying than putting the crevice tool on a Shop Vac and sucking it all up – the dust, the hair, the old candy wrappers under our teenage sons’ beds, and the peanuts between the couch cushions. None of us was ashamed or embarrassed to admit it – we like our houses to

be clean and tidy. Notwithstanding the negative stereotype good housekeeping has been assigned by pop culture, the fact remains that most people want to live in a tidy house. Despite modern society’s attempts to grant merit to tolerating mess, the virtues of cleanliness persist. That is the truth that is illuminated every day by that pesky little ray of sunlight that shines through my window. Call it godliness or OCD, as long as the sun continues to shine, I will run and get my broom.

Chamber class reports for military day Navy’s training commander joins discussion with Pensacola leaders Ens. Alexander Perrien NETC Public Affairs

The commander of Naval Education Training Command (NETC) led a roundtable discussion among Navy and Pensacola leaders Jan. 10 about the economic and social impact the Navy has on the local area. Rear Adm. Don Quinn moderated the discussion, held inside the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, at the conclusion of Leadership Pensacola (LEAP) class of 2013’s military day. LEAP is a 10-month program organized by the Greater Pensacola Chamber. Classes consist of 50 local leaders who are immersed, through 11 seminars, into the economy, infrastructure and military that support the Pensacola area. Military Day is a one-day segment of the curriculum focused on developing an understanding of what takes place in the NAS Pensacola region. “We get an in-depth look behind the scenes of what makes the area’s economy tick, the support systems that are here, and the people that are running those systems,” said Gerold Hall, 2013 LEAP member and director of Business Development at Landrum Professional Employer Services. During the conversation, Quinn emphasized the volume of military students who attend training at commands in Pensacola, and the impact they have on the local economy. “Last year, we had 585,000 courses completed in the NETC domain. At any one point in time we have more than 6,500 students aboard NAS Pensacola and Corry Field combined,” he said. “Training is the foundation for our fleet’s success, and a great deal of that training happens right here in Pensacola.” Robert Bender, LEAP attendee and account advisor at Molton, Allen & Williams, said the panel was enlightening and that, more than ever, he values the need for the community to continually make improvements so that Sailors and other service members who come to the area will think about returning

About LEAP Leadership Pensacola was founded in 1982 with the first graduating class in 1983. The Greater Pensacola Chamber established the program with a goal of ensuring the community’s pool of talented leaders would be continually renewed. To date more than 1,200 people have completed the LEAP program and have acquired the skills, passion and connections to work effectively as community trustees.

after retirement or when they leave the armed services. “It’s great to see what goes on here at NAS Pensacola, and we are proud to see how Pensacola affects what goes on in the world. Hopefully we, as residents of Pensacola, show our support and thanks so that those who come through here feel welcome,” said Bender. While onboard NAS Pensacola, LEAP members took tours of the station’s facilities, discussed leadership, and visited several training centers to see first hand

Military OneSource provides tax assistance service By Army Sgt. 1st Class Tyrone C. Marshall Jr. American Forces Press Service

WA S H I N G T O N (NNS) – As tax season nears, Military OneSource and H&R Block have joined forces again to provide a free online tax preparation service for service members. During an interview with American Forces Press Service (AFPS) and the Pentagon Channel, Tony Jackson, a program analyst for the Military OneSource program office, detailed the services available for troops and their families. “Military OneSource is a gateway to a free tax preparation service, partnered with H&R Block,” he said. “We also have tax consultants who can provide assistance, whether it’s seeking and filling out tax forms or any other taxrelated information.” Jackson emphasized it is a safe and secure way for service members to prepare their taxes online. “Military OneSource and H&R block definitely meet industry standards for security for websites,” he said. “Also, encryption software (is used), and there’s also no selling of information, so service members and family members can be assured that their information is secure, and it stays within Military OneSource and

H&R Block.” Jackson noted that two services – basic and premium – are provided through H&R Block, with one notable difference. The basic service is free, he said, and the premium service would apply to taxpayers who must file Schedule C returns, generally to report gains or losses from business ownership. “When you (start) getting into premium, ... you’re going to incur some additional costs, where basic is free,” Jackson said. “But if you have Schedule C tax issues, that’s when you’d go to the premium. Again, the key point there is you do incur additional costs if you have to use the premium.” For those not sure which service they should use, Jackson encouraged them to use the Military OneSource website as a guide. The site lists answers to frequently asked questions, he added. “You can always contact Military OneSource at 1 (800) 342-9647,” Jackson said. “We’re open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so any questions you have, you can use the website or the call center at the (toll-free) number.” Jackson said both methods are effective in contacting Military OneSource tax consultants offering useful services for troops and their families.

“Not only do they provide forms and basic information relative to military-specific tax issues and questions, they are a gateway to get you to H&R Block,” he said. “If your tax situation warrants, they’ll get you to a volunteer income tax assistance clinic on your local military installation or larger command. It’s one-stop shopping.”

These tax consultants cannot prepare tax forms or direct people to do anything, Jackson said. Everything is on a recommended basis. All members of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps are eligible to use the service, he said, including members of the National Guard and Reserve components, regardless of activation

status. Coast Guard reservists activated under Title 10 authority to serve with the Navy also are eligible, he added, and so are spouses and other family members enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System. “Family members that have been designated to provide support to deployed service mem-

bers, medically discharged retirees and discharged service members (within) 180 days of their discharge date are eligible for Military OneSource services,” Jackson added. The key to these services is financial readiness, which is a Defense Department priority, Jackson said. “We understand that financial readiness is a readiness issue,” he said. “If you have a service (member) who’s concerned about their financial situation then that detracts from the mission.” Jackson also provided his personal testament to using the free tax preparation program, having served on active duty in the Marine Corps as a personnel officer for more than 20 years. He said his family still uses the service. “In fact, I have a daughter right now who is currently a military spouse, and she continues to use it as well,” he said. This program’s ultimate goal, Jackson said, is to ensure service members and their families know that Military OneSource is an option. “We hope it’s the first option ... for getting your taxes prepared or answering any questions or issues you have with taxes,” he said. “Just know that Military OneSource is there to help you.”

Runway extension in place at NOLF Evergreen By Lt. j.g. Tim Mosso NASWF PAO

The Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Public Works Department ended 2012 on a high note with the on-budget and ahead-of-schedule completion of a runway extension at Naval Outlying Landing Field (NOLF) Evergreen. The project, which involved extending the runway and peripheral clear zone, will allow the air station and sister command, Training Air Wing Five, to expand its naval aviation pilot training operations with the new T6B Texan II primary trainer. Navy pilot training operations at Evergreen, Ala., are facilitated by a lease agreement with the municipality. Student naval aviators in primary phase training use the airfield as a focal point for pattern practice, landing technique, and simulated emergency procedure practice. The elevated performance of the T-6 ushered changes to the facility in order to meet the wing’s target training tempo. “We added a 1,000-foot extension to the east-west runway and expanded the clear zone around the extension. Training in the

T-6 requires 4,000 feet of runway for tandem (student and instructor) operation and 5,000 feet for student solos,” NASWF Public Works Department head Lt. Cmdr. Jason Kranz explained. “The expanded runway also required us to expand the clear zones around the extension… this area covers approximately 23 acres,” he added. Through its contractor, Eagle Environmental Services Inc., public works enhanced runway 10/28 to meet the contract requirement almost a month ahead of the delivery deadline. Public Works Facilities Engineering and Acquisitions Director Lt. j.g. Cory McLaughlin described the execution of the project as a model of teamwork between the Navy, the town and the contractor. “For instance, (Eagle Environmental’s) contract completion date was the 20th of December, and we took beneficial occupancy of the extension on Nov. 26,” he noted “They have been a great partner through several projects. Previously, they had a service contract to inspect and clean our water towers, and they did a

great job while up against a hard deadline,” McLaughlin added. Eagle’s prior success in completing public works projects under time constraints was an important consideration in the case of the Evergreen expansion. Department personnel and their contract counterparts worked against a

looming deadline to complete the project. While Evergreen’s second runway, 01/19, was extended in 2008 under an initial appropriation, adjoining private lands required Navy purchase before work could commence. Protracted negotiations led to a sense of urgency among the base’s engi-

neering personnel. “It was the second portion of a MILCON project from fiscal year 2008, and MILCON funds must be expended within five years of the initial appropriation. We had to award the contract and obligate funds by fiscal year 2013,” Kranz related. Once arrangements

were made, public works and Eagle proceeded at a brisk pace. The contract was awarded in May 2012 and the work was completed in time to permit TraWing-5 to benefit from expanded training opportunities in advance of the holiday slowdown. As a result of the Navy’s land purchase, the service and the town of Evergreen will take their collaborative stewardship of the airfield to greater lengths than ever. In addition to the expanded student presence at the field, the Navy will retain ownership of the runway extension, the adjacent clear zones and associated property purchased to facilitate the expansion. The town will retain ownership of its portions of the plant, and the Navy will continue to renew its lease there on a periodic basis. NASWF Public Works anticipates that the air station’s stewardship of Evergreen will encompass additional upgrades in the new year. “We’re probably going to do an overlay of the runways and replace existing asphalt to improve the surface quality,” Kranz said. While major modification work has concluded at Evergreen, the air station’s professional engineers are turning their attention to new challenges for 2013. The base’s training mission requires continuous modification of the physical plant, and expanded T6 operations will remain a primary motivating factor. Kranz noted that his department already is pursuing upgrade projects at several of the base’s outlying fields. “We recently awarded a contract to do clear-zone acquisition and clearing at NOLF Barin and NOLF Summerdale … all of this is T-6 driven.”

Navy commemorates Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Jan. 21 By Ens. Amber Lynn Daniel Navy Office of Diversity and Inclusion Public Affairs

WA S H I N G T O N (NNS) – As announced by NavAdmin 001/13, the Navy will join the nation in observing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 21. Navy commands are encouraged to reflect on the recurring theme, “Remember! Celebrate! Act! A Day On, Not A Day Off!” and increase their knowledge and awareness of Dr. King’s contributions to American history and civil rights by participating in military and community events. Dr. King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism during the civil rights movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law.

Following in the footsteps of his father, King

entered the Christian ministry in February 1948 at

the age of 19. He was ordained at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta and in 1954, upon completion of graduate studies at Boston University, he accepted a call to serve at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Ala. While ministering there, King became an instrumental leader in the Montgomery Bus Boycott, made famous by the arrest of Rosa Parks. The boycott lasted over a year and led to the 1956 district court ruling that racial segregation on buses was unconstitutional. During the course of his lifetime, King was arrested 30 separate times for his participation in civil rights activities. Although King spent the majority of his life preaching on the issues of social justice, empowerment, love and peace, which won him the Nobel

Peace Prize in 1964, his attention and efforts also included fighting economic injustice. On April 4, 1968, King journeyed to Memphis, Tenn., to help lead sanitation workers in a protest against low wages and intolerable working conditions. While standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel, King was shot and ultimately died. In honor of King’s unfinished efforts, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was established by President Ronald Reagan in 1983. The first observance was held Jan. 15, 1986, the anniversary of King’s birthday. In 1992, President George H.W. Bush proclaimed the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday would be observed every year on the third Monday of January. On Aug. 23, 1994 Congress passed the

Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday and Service Act, designating the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday as a day of national volunteer service. All commands are strongly encouraged to increase their knowledge and awareness of King’s contributions to American history and civil rights through participation in military and community events and volunteerism within their communities and worldwide. More information on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, including a search engine to find volunteer opportunities near you can be found online at http://www. mlkday. gov/ about/ serveon kingday.php.

Martin Luther King’s dream of racial equality ‘I Have a Dream’ speech riveted crowd at 1963 march on Washington From http://iipdigital.usembassy.gov

I

t was a march and a speech that the world cannot forget. Aug. 28, 1963, an estimated 250,000 people marched to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington where they heard Martin Luther King Jr. give a speech of unsurpassable eloquence. Known ever since from its “I Have a Dream” passages, the speech gave an impassioned voice to the demands of the U.S. civil rights movement in equal rights for all citizens, including those who were born black and brown. The speech, coming near the close of the then-largest demonstration in U.S. history, created a new spirit of hope across the land. It was one of those rare moments in history that changed a nation – paving the way for a transformation of American law and life. “It was a very peaceful day. A sea of white as well as black faces enveloped the (National) Mall,” recalled Dorothy Height, president emeritus of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW). She was one of the march organizers and sat behind King on the platform. “I think it was a decisive moment not only in U.S. civil rights history, but also in American history. It resulted in a new determination to move toward equality, freedom and greater employment for people of color,” she added. Height – the author of a memoir, “Open

Wide the Freedom Gates” – said, “The real significance of the march, and the speech, was that it changed attitudes. Righteous indignation against racial discrimination became widespread after the march. It led to a time so full of promise and achievement, you could feel it.” Rep. John Lewis (a democrat from Georgia), the youngest speaker, at age 23 at the 1963 march, agreed. “Because of the march, because of the involvement of hundreds and thousands of ordinary citizens, we experienced what I like to call a nonviolent revolution under the rule of law – a revolution of values, a revolution of ideas.” The tangible manifestation of the change that Height and Lewis describe was quick in coming. Less than a year after the march, President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which banned discrimination in public

facilities, such as hotels and restaurants, and also prohibited employment discrimination. The following year, the Voting Rights Act was enacted to ensure that African Americans had the right to vote in reality as well as on paper. In 1968, Congress passed the Fair Housing Act to remove discrimination in buying and renting of housing. This landmark legislation was complemented by new policies, such as affirmative action, designed to counter the legacy of discrimination and to promote African American advancement. The 1960s legislation is considered to be the crowning achievement of the civil rights movement. The Civil Rights Act swept away the more blatant forms of segregation and discrimination, banishing centuries-old indignities. The Voting Rights Act empowered millions of African Americans politically, leading to a surge of black officeholders. The new laws took effect immediately. More evolutionary was a change in attitudes. In a 1963 Newsweek poll, 74 percent of whites said racial integration was “moving too fast,” a viewpoint that seems shocking today when attitudes are very different. In a 2000 New York Times poll, more than 60 percent approved of interracial marriage. And 80 percent said they did

not care whether their neighbors were white or black. If King were alive today, he likely would applaud the achievement of most of the aims of the 1963 march, while stressing that his dream still has not been fully realized, particularly as relates to equality of economic opportunity. It is a view also stressed by civil rights leaders, such as Height and Lewis. “We have made much of Dr. King’s dream come true,” said Lewis. But, he added, “we still have a distance to go.” Closing lingering economic and educational disparities among the races, however, is a much more complex task than ending legally sanctioned segregation and mandating voting rights. As for King, his dream at the march on Washington is now part of the political mainstream, his birthday a national holiday during which Americans honor his ideas and his memory. Political leaders from both major parties supported a memorial built in his honor in the nation’s capital alongside three giants of American history – Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and Franklin Roosevelt. It is a measure perhaps of how much a nation can grow and change that King’s dream now is accepted as irrefutable truth by the overwhelming majority of Americans.

U.S. Naval Sea Cadets attend National Flight Academy training From U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps Independence Division

The Independence Division of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadets (USNSCC) drills out of NAS Pensacola. And one of the perks of being situated onboard NASP is having access to unique training opportunities that do not require long distance travel. When the National Flight Academy (NFA) publicized the availability of first-come, first-serve scholarships that would cover the entire cost of the threeday version of their training, it didnʼt take long for the Independence Division to secure spots for cadets who were within the age guidelines and had the availability to attend one of the three

weekends offered in October and November. The NFAʼs foundation offered the scholarships. Seven cadets took part in the training through the scholarship opportunity. Cadets Deleigha Gibson, Sir Wyrick, Thomas Ferrie, Zach Bergeron, Alejandra Dutton, Connor OʼBrien and Christian Petch boarded Ambition for the Friday night to Sunday morning training. The mission of the NFA is to promote STEM learning: science, technology, engineering and math. Through a state-ofthe-art facility where the students are put through aviation-based activities, the idea is to encourage youth to pursue a career that utilizes those disciplines. It certainly had that affect on all the cadets, referred to as

AXPʼs, or Ambition Experimental Pilots, while in training. Following the training, Sir Wyrick, who was named “Top AXP” during his training evolution, commented, “I might pursue it (air traffic control) as a career choice. I know that I will need a good mathematic structure, which the National Flight Academy has helped me with in STEM.” Several of the cadets indicated the training sparked their interest in STEM careers and they definitely want to attend the training again. The NFA and national USNSCC leadership are looking at developing a session for Sea Cadets that would become part of their annual advanced training opportunities. That opportunity would

be even more attractive for a Sea Cadet where exposure and use of STEM learnings would also fulfill annual advance training required for cadets to promote. Itʼs an opportunity that Independence Division cadets are happy to play the role of “test pilot.” The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a nonprofit youth organization for males and females ages 11-17 years of age. The Independence Division drills out of NASP once a month. For more information about the US Naval Sea Cadets, visit www.seacadets.org or contact the unit’s executive officer at 637-1384. For more information about the National Flight Academy visit www. nationalflightacademy.co m.

Members of the Independence Division attend a National Flight Acedemy graduation ceremony as a unit. Three cadets, wearing their yellow Ambition squadron T-shirts, participated in the training and were part of the graduation class.

Musical comedy hits serious note at Pensacola Little Theatre From Pensacola Little Theatre

The Pensacola Little Theatre’s Studio 400 series is entertaining audiences with its first full-length musical – “A New Brain” – a comic musical about making the most out of life in the face of tragedy.

Details • What: Pensacola Little Theatre is celebrating its 77th season.

contain adult language and situations. If musical comedy is not your thing, there are a couple of other upcoming Pensacola Little Theatre productions that you can pick from: • “The Philadelphia Story,” which was a classic movie starring Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart, will come to life on stage Jan. 25-27 and Jan. 31-Feb. 3. The story follows Tracy Lord, a socialite who is sure of her future one day before her marriage to a successful businessman. However, with the surprise arrival of ex-husband Dexter Haven and the tempting presence of tabloid reporter Mike Connor, Lord’s perfect vision of herself is shaken to the core. It will take a bottle of champagne and a compromising situation to crack her forbidding exterior and reveal an understanding heart. It is

comedy of manners that illustrates how sometimes getting what you want means you have to learn to let go. Tickets are $14-$30. Discounts are available for senior citizens, full-time students, military and groups of 10 or more. • “Short Attention Span Theatre” is Pensacola Little Theatre’s annual Valentine to patrons – an evening devoted to the crazy and comic twists of the modern relationship. The production features six quirky one-act plays that find the humor in romance and relationships. A special Valentine’s Day performance is scheduled for 8 p.m. Feb. 14. Enjoy delicious desserts and chocolate or French kiss martinis for $50 per couple or $25 per person. Seating for the Feb. 14 show is limited to cafe tables only. Other performance dates are Feb. 15-17 and Feb. 21-23.
