Director of Warfare Integration for Information Dominance visits NASP Story, photo by Carla M. McCarthy Center for Information Dominance Public Affairs
Rear Adm. Nancy A. Norton, director of Warfare Integration for Information Dominance, wrapped up a two-day visit to training and operational commands for the information warfare (IW) community in Pensacola Jan. 15. Her visit began with a stop at Navy Information Operations Command (NIOC) Pensacola for an operations brief and a facilities tour. She observed firsthand Cyber Mission Force and national support Sailors conducting cyberspace operations and signals intelligence tasks. In her previous position as the director of the Command, Control, Communications and Cyber
Directorate, J6, at U.S. Pacific Command, some of the combat support teams at NIOC Pensacola had worked for her, and she said she had always wanted to see them in action in person. “Seeing the progression that they’ve made, that all of the teams have made, and all of the missions there at NIOC Pensacola was just wonderful,” said Norton. “They have made leaps and bounds from pretty much a cold start of starting up capability to providing direct support to real world operations. It’s really impressive – great Sailors, great mission. They’re doing tremendous work.” Norton met with Rear Adm. Michael S. White, commander, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), which set the stage for a comprehensive visit to the IW com-
3,800 students from all military services every day. “Nothing beats a trip to CID (in) Pensacola for a shot in the arm to tell you how bright the future of the United States Navy is and the information warfare community,” said Norton. Tours and briefs included the afloat operations training system, the electronics training lab, the AN/SLQ-32(V)6 maintenance course, the cryptologic technician (collection) digital signals lab, the cryptologic technician (networks) course and its capstone exercise, and the Ship Signal ExploitaRear Adm.

CyberThon prepares students for cybersecurity careers From afceapensacola.org
With a focus on feeding the increasingly high demand for skilled workers in the cybersecurity field, local and regional technology leaders are teaming up for a second annual CyberThon event. Set to begin
today, Jan. 22, and continue through Jan. 24 at the National Flight Academy, CyberThon 2016 is presented by the AFCEA Blue Angels Pensacola Chapter and will bring together community leaders, cyber experts and a cadre of cyber competitors from local schools to participate in
real?world cyber operations and defense sessions. Teams of high school students will be placed in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked as the first responders for cybersecurity threat detection and response of a small company. With mentoring and guidance from local
cyber experts, teams will use security tools and defense tactics to find cybersecurity vulnerabilities and harden the IT infrastructure to prevent, mitigate and deter cyber attackers and maintain efficient system and network operations. Approximately 45 students
from high schools in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties will participate in the event, more than twice the enrollment of last year’s inaugural CyberThon. In addition, more than 30 elementary school students

NASP master-at-arms is Olympic wrestling hopeful From staff reports
NAS Pensacola Security’s MA2 Robert Yamashita was selected as one of 20 wrestlers selected to attend this year’s All-Navy wrestling camp at Naval Base Bangor Washington, in Kitsap-Bangor, Wash., being held Jan. 17 through Feb. 19. The Navy wrestlers are battling for spots on the All-Navy Wrestling Team, which is comprised of eight weight classes, to represent the Navy at the Armed Forces Wrestling Champi-
onships. At the championship, which will be Feb. 20-21 at Bangor, wrestlers from the U.S. Army, Marines and Air Force will duel in both Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling. This year (2016) is Yamashita’s fifth time going to the camp (having gone in 2009, 2011, 2014 and 2015). The opportunity arose after breaking through at last years Greco-Roman U.S. Open Senior Nationals, placing sixth in the 71 kg (157 pound) weight class and becoming

Commander, Training Air Wing Six (CTW-6), headquartered aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP), hosted nearly 35 members of the Martin Luther King Jr. and Columbia High School Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) programs from Decatur, Ga., recently. Students toured the CTW-6 flight-line and received an up-close look at both the T-6 Texan II and T-45 Goshawk training aircraft. Students were invited to a presentation where they learned more about the training that goes into becoming a naval flight officer (NFO). At the conclusion of the brief, midshipmen from both JROTC units were given the opportunity to try on the anti-gravity suits (G-suits) worn by Navy pilots, NFOs and astronauts. The G-suit is a critical component of an aviator’s flight gear which allows both naval aviators and flight officers to better withstand the physical demands of high speed maneuvers. CTW-6 Training Officer Cmdr. Denis Turcotte said that tours such as this serve as unique opportunities to give young men and women a glimpse into the unparalleled training and career opportunities found here at the U.S. Navy’s “Cradle of Aviation.” “Tours such as these serve to expose

NMCRS: Annual Active-Duty Fund Drive to kick off From Sarah Overton Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society caseworker/ communications lead
For more than a century, the Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) has provided assistance to Sailors and Marines and their families, allowing service members to overcome unexpected struggles and attain financial selfsufficiency. This assistance can be educational, through personalized budget counseling and advice. It is often financial, through interest-free loans and grants. Most importantly,
NMCRS assistance is often necessary for Sailors and Marines in tough times. NMCRS assistance enables Sailors and Marines to keep a roof over their heads and food on their tables. NMCRS assistance allows Sailors and Marines to fly home on a moment’s notice in order to care for critically ill family members. NMCRS assistance places trained nurses at the bedsides of wounded service members. NMCRS assistance

The artificial intelligence-based training coaches students one-on-one through interactive software. “Seeing the young Sailors who are going through the training and the instructors who are teaching those young Sailors just warms the heart to know that the motivation is high, the skills are high, they know what they want to do,” said Norton. “They are determined to go out there and make a difference in the fleet, and they’re going to be able to do it because of the skills that CID is giving them. “I’m particularly impressed with some of the instructors here and how motivated they are to make a difference and to be able to influence the future of the Navy.” She also met with and answered questions from officers attending the Informa-

Maureen Fox, CID headquarters commanding officer, noted that the visit was an opportunity for Norton to gain insight into how high-caliber cyber, cryptology, and information technology training is developed and delivered to future IW community Sailors. “The domain that the information warfare community operates in is multifaceted and is evolving so quickly,” said Fox. “I was so pleased to have Adm. Norton see the high quality of Sailors we are delivering to today’s fleet. This visit helped show one of our primary customers how CID is providing a competitive edge in all IW mission areas in support of the CNO’s strategic guidance.” For more information on the Center for Information Dominance, visit www.netc. navy.mil/centers/ceninfodom/; www.facebook.com/CenterForInformationDominance/ and twitter.com/CenterInfoDom/.

the first Navy wrestler to earn All-American status since 2004. “After years (of trying) it felt great to finally win some matches, but at the same time I realized I’m still not satisfied and this is not my goal,” Yamashita said. “My goal is quite simple and that’s to be an Olympic wrestling champion. Which means I need to just keep pushing and improve in all areas.” Yamashita’s coach will be NDC Ale Delapena, who has been with the Navy Wrestling program for 11 years as both competitor and coach. “Since day one coach Ale has been a huge influence to me,” Yamashita said. Yamashita recalled the result of Delapena’s encouragement. “I would get beat up and tossed around left and right, day in and day out at practices, and just never thought I could figure out this brutal sport. I’m not exactly sure what he saw, but he just never gave up on me.” This year’s Armed Forces Championships will also be an Olympic qualifier and the Olympic trials will be held in Iowa City, Iowa, April 10. Yamashita looks forward to the matches. “The Armed Forces Championships is one of the toughest and most prestigious tournaments domestically mainly because of the Army who has multiple Olympic and world-caliber athletes,” Yamashita said. “It’s definitely an uphill battle for the Navy as we get together for maybe six weeks out of the year.” He noted the Army has a year-round program which allows them to wrestle as a job. “But that’s not going to deter me from my goals and not only do I know I can compete with them but I know I will beat them.” Yamashita, who also practices martial arts, has in the past represented the Armed Forces Judo Team to compete in military world and Olympic championship, traveling to competitions in India, Brazil, Kazakhstan and Korea. “I love competing on the biggest stage against the greatest athletes and I’ve had some of the biggest emotional swings with gutwrenching losses and thrilling victories,” Yamashita noted. “The best thing about combat sports is that its one-on-one so there is no one else to blame except yourself: you get to control your own fate.”
career in the Navy and in aviation.” Students were then provided an opportunity to view both aircraft with current CTW-6 student NFOs answering questions regarding the aircraft, training and the path to becoming a naval officer. “It’s given me an insight on aviation and possible opportunities,” said Columbia High School student Khayree Hasan. “Both NJROTC and this experience have given me an extra push to focus on both improving myself and ultimately helping my family.”

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,

Look out guest room, the boy is home from college By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
here is a room in our creaky old base house that we try to avoid. It’s a dangerous hazard, a treacherous obstacle, a toxic wasteland. Those who enter are well-advised to wear eye protection, use a gas mask, and wield a knife, just in case. You see, buried deep in debris and dirty gym socks lies the creature who is responsible for turning that room into a veritable landfill: our 20-yearold son, Hayden, who has been home from college for three weeks. Every time Hayden goes back to college, it takes a month to turn his bedroom into an acceptable guest room. It’s not just a matter of cleaning – more like the disaster restoration services that are performed after fires, floods, or lethal mold infestations. The room stays clean until Hayden comes home from college on break, and the cycle repeats itself all over again. Now, although I provided my son with clean sheets, the mattress is, once again, bare of linens, which were presum-

ably thrown off in the middle of the night and lay crumpled in a corner. The bed is instead strewn with gum wrappers, cords, empty soda cans and wrinkled clothing. The floor is covered with piles of neglected books, empty boxes, tangled electronics, crusty dishes, and stiffened gym clothes. Every flat surface holds teetering stacks of college boy cast-offs, all coated in an unhealthy sprinkling of dust and toenail clippings. Interestingly, none of this seems to interfere with our son’s daily routine while home on break. He is perfectly happy to wake up at noon on his litter-strewn mattress, wearing the same pizza sauce stained T-shirt he had on yesterday, and stumble like a zombie with crazed hair down
About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 20 years (and running).

She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. to the kitchen for his daily roast beef sandwich, which he likes to consume on the couch while watching old episodes of “Judge Judy” and wiping his hands on the upholstery.
After a sufficient number of crumbs have been deposited on the carpet, Hayden finds his way back to his bedroom, somehow negotiating the familiar piles of debris without so much as a scratch, to spend a few hours on one of several electronic devices before getting serious about his day. Sometime in the mid-afternoon, he emerges once again from his personal cesspool, ready to face the day, or what’s left of it, with vim and vigor. He has not shaved, combed his hair, or changed his clothes, but he does manage to grab his coat (which doubles as a blanket while his bedding is in that forgotten corner) and his shoes (both of which remain untied.) He spends the rest of his day walking the dog, going to the gym and visiting friends. I wonder if his buddies are alarmed by his disheveled state, but I realize that young men his age are too caught up in youthful exuberance to care. He returns home in time for dinner, during which he consumes his meal in a manner normally associated with rabid wolverines. To his credit, Hayden courteously drops his fork and plate into the dishwasher before retiring to his putrid
quarters for the night. We remind him to take a shower, which he always does, even if that occurs at 1 a.m., after various phone calls to friends, old movies, and rounds of Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon. After we take him back to college, I will excavate, fumigate and disinfect his room so guests can sleep there without breaking an ankle and contracting a fungal infection. Why do we enable our son to live in such a primitive and unsanitary way when he’s home from college? Shouldn’t we, a military family, require him to wake with morning revelry, and spend his day with productive, ship-shape pursuits? Perhaps. But seeing as Hayden tackles differential equations, algorithms, and software design while at school; we figure he deserves a break. Besides, someday when our kids are through with college and on their own, our house will be perpetually clean and ready for guests – with hospital corners, gleaming surfaces, and Febreezed freshness. And then, we’ll long for the days when our home was dirtier, because that was when it was when it was their home too.

Bittersweet goodbyes: Last S-3 Viking leaves U.S. Navy service By Kimberly Brown, NAWCWD and Lt. Drew Gaston, VX-30 Public Affairs
OINT MUGU, California (NNS) – After more than 40 years of service, the last S-3B Viking in U.S. Navy service launched one last time from the runway at Naval Base Ventura County, Point Mugu, in California Jan. 11. Originally introduced in 1974 as a replacement for the S-2 Tracker, the Viking has ranged far from its anti-submarine warfare roots to perform various roles such as organic tanking, electronic intelligence and carrier onboard delivery. The Viking officially retired from Navy service in 2009, but like many military members, the S-3B was called upon to continue to serve the fleet in another capacity. Two S-3 aircraft joined Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 30 that spring. “We landed in a rainstorm,” said Capt. John Rousseau, who led the charge to bring the retired aircraft to VX-30. “It was one of the only times it rains around
here. Those were just temporary, covering while three more went through depot maintenance.” While Fleet Readiness Center Southeast set about getting the S3s ship-shape again, Rousseau and the VX-30 team spent months qualifying and validating their skills with the two Vikings they had. Rousseau, who started his career flying the Viking and did a tour instructing, helped make sure everyone was up to speed. The aircraft, he noted, was well suited to working the Point Mugu Sea Range. “It’s got legs,” Rousseau said. “It can go fast and long. The radar, even though it’s old, there’s not many better. We still
3D printing to enable Sailors rapid on-demand manufacturing By Luefras Robinson NSWC Dahlgren Division Communications
DAHLGREN, Va. (NNS) – From making prosthetics to prototyping a robot, 3D printing technologies are making concepts a rapid reality for today’s warfighter, on demand. The reality of 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is expanding across the Navy’s science and engineering community via Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) and Combat Direction Systems Activity (CDSA) Dam Neck. “We are on the ground floor of 3D printing,” NSWCDD Technical Director Dennis McLaughlin told 100 participants at a 3D Print-A-Thon recently when 3D printing experts revealed the technology’s capabilities. Scientists and engi-
neers, who were provided with the 3D printing tools to experiment at the event, responded with innovative ideas to benefit the warfighter, and the response is ongoing. They are using a 3D printing device that significantly reduces production time, allowing rapid deployment of equipment part replacements back to the field. Print-A Thon attendees saw a replica of a warship’s command center design console and a lowfidelity 3D model used to gather input on layouts from the fleet. This far-reaching capability includes prosthetics design and manufacturing, cosmetic and corrective surgery design and face pieces based on scanning living anatomy. The scanning technology can also be used to scan mechanical components for modeling, analysis or re-engineering.

spot schools of dolphins and patches of seaweed,” when patrolling the range. In November, VX-30 retired the first of its three Vikings, flying it to the military aircraft boneyard at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona. The other two, each with 40 years of service on the airframe, were not far behind. “They still have life in them,”
Rousseau said, “but it was time for another depot-level maintenance period, and you have to weigh that cost against the little time you could still get out of them.” The last Viking will give at least one more round of federal service before it retires; the final launch from Point Mugu was headed for NASA, not the boneyard. But for Rousseau and other
Viking pilots and enthusiasts, the final Navy flight is bittersweet. “So many amazing people have been associated with the S3 community over the years. This last Navy flight is difficult,” Rousseau said. “It feels like the end of an era.” For more news from Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division, visit www. navy. mil/ local/ nawcwd.
SecNav names latest expeditionary sea base ship From Secretary of the Navy Public Affairs
WASHINGTON (NNS) – Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced the Navy’s newest Expeditionary Sea Base (ESB) ship, T-ESB 4, will be named USNS Hershel “Woody” Williams during a ceremony in Charleston, W.V., Jan. 14. Hershel “Woody” Williams, the ship’s namesake, was born in West Virginia and joined the Marine Corps following the attack on Pearl Harbor. In 1944, after serving in Guadalcanal and Guam, he joined the campaign in Iwo Jima. Two days after arriving on the island, Williams picked up a 70-pound flamethrower and walked ahead of his infantry’s tanks for four hours clearing their path of enemy machine gun fire. President Harry S. Truman awarded him the Medal of Honor two years later for his actions. Williams served during the Battle of Iwo Jima until he was wounded in March of 1945. He returned to the United States, was awarded a Purple Heart and released from active duty.

Williams is the last surviving Medal of Honor recipient from the Battle of Iwo Jima. The new 784-foot-long vessel will feature a 52,000 square foot flight deck, fuel and equipment storage, repair spaces, magazines, and missionplanning spaces. Able to accommodate up to 250 personnel, the new ESB ship will support multiple missions, such as air mine counter measures (AMCM), counter-piracy operations, maritime security operations, humanitarian aid
and disaster-relief missions, and crisis response operations. In addition, the vessel will be capable of supporting MH-53 and MH-60 helicopters, with an option for future upgrades to support MV22 tilt-rotor aircraft. USNS Hershel “Woody” Williams will be constructed by General Dynamics National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (NASSCO) in San Diego. The ship is expected to be delivered to the Navy in 2018.

NavSup helps Navy promote healthy food choices through Go For Green By Kathy Adams NavSup Corporate Communicationss
ECHANICSBURG, Pennsylvania (NNS) – Naval Supply Systems Command (NavSup) is working to educate Sailors on the Go for Green (G4G) program, which helps Sailors know what choices to make in the galley line to stay fit and healthy. G4G is a food identification system designed to help service members identify healthy food and beverage choices while dining in military galleys. The color codes – green (eat often), yellow (eat occasionally), and red (eat rarely), along with a salt shaker graphic to measure sodium content, help service members choose foods and beverages that boost their performance, readiness and health. “This program will provide Sailors worldwide with accurate nutrition information that will help them make healthy choices,” said NavSup Dietician Jen Person-Whippo, who is tasked with educating the Navy on the G4G’s green, yellow, red system. “Ultimately, G4G will allow Sailors to choose healthy options at each meal as part of their broader fitness goals,”
Person-Whippo added. A NavSup G4G pilot education program will take place in late January in Norfolk, Va., educating the NavSup Fleet Logistics Centers (FLCs) Navy Food Management Teams, which will play an important part in educating Culinary Specialists (CSs) who work the galleys both ashore and afloat on the food labeling system. The first step in implementing G4G across the fleet is training galley personnel. NavSup, in partnership with Combat Feeding Directorate at Natick Labs, and Uniform Services University, prepared eight training modules that will be used across the Navy to train galley personnel on the proper use of G4G when preparing and labeling food items served to Sailors. The NavSup dietitian is also

As the “Backbone of Naval Aviation,” Naval Air Station Whiting Field has a proud history of training student military aviators to become the best pilots in the world. Training Air Wing Five establishes the foundation of skill and dedication that is necessary for each officer/aviator to succeed. As they transition to more advanced helicopters, jets or propeller-driven aircraft, a few select individuals may eventually find themselves in a pipeline that is, literally, out of this world. Military pilots are an important source of NASA astronauts, and more than a few who had “The Right Stuff” have been trained at NAS Whiting Field. This is the second in a series of three stories to focus on the NAS Whiting Field aviators who went on to great careers in the military, in space and beyond.
NASWF alumnus travels beyond the exosphere By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field PAO
Most weekdays, Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) is awash with young student naval aviators wearing flight suits marked with small gold or silver bars. These aspiring pilots are embarking on a journey that will include placing the Wings of Gold on their chests. However, that milestone is only a step on the journey, not its culmination – even though the students cannot see the rest of the path yet. Capt. Sunita Lyn “Suni” Williams certainly couldn’t have known that her time at NASWF would establish the foundation of a career that has encompassed helicopter flight landings on destroyers at sea, pushing the limits of aircraft as a test pilot and even performing extravehicular walks in space. Recently, while flying over NAS Whiting Field, Williams remembered how green she was as a fledgling, “wanna-be,” pilot and joked to her fellow pilot, that she was glad they were up here at 30,000 feet, “cause down there, they are still figuring out where they are going.” While she meant that statement literally, figuratively the statement is true as well. A little less than 30 years ago, she was the student learning where she was going with T-34 Turbo Mentor aircraft at the installation’s North Field, but she was also still trying to figure out her path as an aviator. Originally, Williams wanted to be a veterinarian, but when that door closed to her, she opened another and attended the Naval Academy to earn her physical science degree. Following a six-month assignment with Naval Coastal System Command where she earned designation as a basic diving officer, Williams reported to Naval Aviation Training Command. She completed her basic ground school course work at NAS Pensacola before starting flight training at NASWF. She remembers it fondly, yet the intensity of the training and the new experience of flying were stressful as well. “We all went through the Cradle of Naval Aviation and I have all sorts of memories from that time, but my feet weren’t really

set on the ground yet ... NAS Whiting Field was my first smell of jet fuel on the flight line at North Field. It was just something that I wasn’t exposed too before. (Flight training) was a little overwhelming, nerve-wracking and scary at first.” Williams completed primary flight training and progressed to helicopter flight training at South Field. She earned her wings in 1989, and understandably, having her mom “punch” on her wings is her greatest memory. However, her first time hovering and the help of the instructors play prominent roles as well. “There were great people there and they helped take me from a fledgling new officer to being very confident in the aircraft,” she said. “Being an officer is instilled in you ... There is a friendly competition to do your best and to be the best for your squadron. That’s when you start to realize that you are a part of something bigger than yourself. The training at NAS Whiting Field is a stepping stone for a new officer to become part of a big team.” That “stepping stone” led to an assignment with Helicopter Combat Support Squadron Eight in Norfolk, Va., to fly the H-46 Seaknight helicopter. Williams deployed overseas to the Mediterranean and Red Sea in support of Operation Desert Shield and served as officer-in-
charge of a detachment sent to fly relief operations in South Florida following Hurricane Andrew in 1992. She said that these deployments set the stage for the next step in her career as a test pilot. In addition to flying while on deployment, she worked on the aircraft with the maintenance teams. With her engineering degree, she was always interested in aerodynamics and the functioning of the aircraft, and helping to keep the aircraft operating smoothly recharged her interest in the mechanics of flight. A fellow officer with the unit suggested she apply for test pilot school. Williams graduated the school in 1993 and worked in the Rotary Wing Aircraft Test Directorate as an H-46 project officer and V-22 chase pilot in the T-2. She also flew test flights in the SH-60B/F as well as seven other aircraft. Her follow-on orders returned her to the test directorate, this time as an instructor. In all, she has flown 3,000 flight hours in more than 30 different types of aircraft. She attributes her desire to learn as the characteristic that helped her be accepted into the astronaut training program in 1998. “You work hard (as a test pilot) to learn the limits of the aircraft and that attitude got me down here to Johnson Space Center,” she said. “The curiosity
that I displayed in learning about my aircraft is very similar to wanting to know how spacecraft operate.” During the next eight years, Williams completed the scientific and technical briefings, shuttle and International Space Station (ISS) systems training, required physiological training, ground school and water and wilderness survival drills that are necessary for all astronauts. She also spent nine days underwater in the Aquarius habitat as a NEEMO2 crew member to experience the difficulties of extreme environments and close quarters. She launched with the crew of STS-116 Dec. 9, 2006, as a flight engineer. Williams spent nearly six months onboard the ISS, logging four spacewalks encompassing 29 hours and 17 minutes, setting new benchmarks for female astronauts – records broken a little more than one year later by Astronaut Peggy Whitson. While onboard the space station, her co-worker, John Higginbotham, cut her pony tail so that it could be donated to Locks of Love upon their return. A dedicated fitness advocate, Williams had qualified for the Boston Marathon while Earthbound. She grew up in nearby Needham, Mass., so running the race had been a long-time goal, but her selection for Mission 14/15 superseded her entry. Her sister Dina Pandya ran in her place along with fellow astronaut Karen Nyberg. Williams kept tabs on her sister while on the station, and using the treadmill there, ran the race with her. She finished in four hours and 24 minutes. “We were very active as children. I was a competitive swimmer – it was just a way of life for us. I believe one of the reasons I am here is because we were athletic as kids,” she said. “It is part of a healthier and happier lifestyle and I wanted to highlight that with the marathon.” NASA selected her for another mission five years later, this time as the ISS commander. The mission launched July 14, 2012, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. She spent 127 days in space performing research and repair work onboard the laboratory including three
more spacewalks. Williams resumed the record for total cumulative spacewalk time by a female astronaut with 50 hours and 40 minutes. With 322 days in space between the two missions, Williams is sixth on the U.S. astronaut endurance list and second for a female. Having already completed the first marathon in orbit, Williams worked with the NASA team to devise a way to simulate a triathlon in space. The bicycle and run portions were easy, but the team had to devise a workout regimen that simulated swimming. She completed the trial during her time in space and added the first triathlon in orbit to her list of accomplishments. Williams continues to serve with NASA and is part of the team testing the Space X and the Boeing spacecraft seeking to be used for future missions. The team helps perform critical design reviews of the planned vessel and provides feedback on the controls and displays. The group’s members are all former Navy or Air Force test pilots and Williams emphasizes that the work they do is based on the foundation learned through flight training. As she tries to pave the way for the next generation of astronauts, Williams joked that it is “time to get out of their way.” “It is time to pass on my experience to the companies and to use the skills gained over my career to ensure the next class is ready to go,” she said. As a young flight student, Williams remembered thinking that she thought all the simulator instructors “are old.” Now she reflects that she is probably older than they were then. NASA is bringing in the people that will make up future spaceship crews including a new group in 2017. It isn’t just pilots, but SEALs, Navy divers, doctors, electricians, anyone with a science background, and NAS Whiting Field is as good a starting point as any. “If you can bring innovative solutions to problems or have a career as a leader, there are opportunities in the NASA pipeline. ... They (flight students) are suited for this if they really want to do it,” she said.

National Blood Donor Month From Pat Michaels Oneblood.org
ne in three of us will need a blood transfusion in our lifetime and one in seven of us will become hospital patients in need of blood. About 38 percent of the population is eligible to give blood, but less than 10 percent of people who can donate do so annually. These statistics are astonishing and they bring to light the vital importance of blood donations during January, National Blood Donor Month. At OneBlood, like all blood centers, the need is constant, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Blood is not only crucial for emergencies and disasters. It is needed every single day for procedures like routine surgeries, cancer treatments, organ or bone marrow transplants and treatments for premature babies. Blood is used in
so many ways to save lives, but cannot be artificially manufactured. It has to come from a volunteer donor. Those blood donors are the silent heroes in our community, giving blood in order to pay it forward for those who will need transfusions. Only altruistic donors can provide the lifesaving gifts of blood, platelets and plasma that one of every three Americans will need to receive at some point in their lifetime. OneBlood’s program called “Target Your Type” not only encourages blood donors to learn their blood type, but it allows them utilize the

best donation method according to their blood type. You can find out how your blood type can be target toward specific patient needs by going to
www.oneblood.org/target-your-type. Generally, healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood.
Photo ID is required. To learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type visit
oneblood.org. All donors receive a wellness checkup of blood pressure, pulse, temperature, and iron count and a cholesterol screening.
Red Cross has urgent need for blood and platelet donations From http://www.redcross.org American Red Cross
WASHINGTON D.C. – Jan. 11, 2016 – The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood and platelet donations to prevent a shortage this winter. Busy holiday schedules in November and December contributed to about 1,700 fewer blood drives held across the country compared to the two previous months, which has resulted in about 50,000 fewer donations and reduced the blood supply. Donation appointments can be quickly and easily scheduled by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800733-2767). “Every two seconds someone in the
U.S. needs blood – that someone could be an accident victim, cancer patient, child with a blood disorder or another person in need of lifesaving blood,” said Chris Hrouda, executive vice president for Red Cross Biomedical Services. “A shortfall can be averted if at least two more donors – above what’s currently expected – come to donate at every Red Cross blood drive this month. We encourage eligible donors to make an appointment to give blood or platelets and help ensure blood products continue to be there for patients who need them.” January is National Blood Donor Month, which has been observed since

1970 with the goal of increasing blood donations during the winter – one of the most difficult times of year to collect enough blood and platelet donations to meet patient needs. In addition to winter bringing busy holiday schedules for many regular donors, severe winter weather can cancel blood drives, and seasonal illnesses, like the flu, may cause donors to be temporarily unable to give. Blood and platelet donors of all blood types are urged to make an appointment to donate for patients like Pyper Young, now 7 years old. The chemotherapy that treated Pyper’s brain cancer also caused her to need emergency transfusions to increase her blood levels. The Red Cross must collect about 14,000 donations every day to meet the needs of patients

like Pyper. How to donate blood A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements. Blood donors can now save time at their next donation by using RapidPass to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, from a home or work computer prior to arriving at the blood drive. To get started and learn more, visit redcross blood.org/ RapidPass and follow the instructions on the site.

Manilow piano part of music drive for schools From Varela Media
Legendary singer-songwriter Barry Manilow hopes others will once again follow his philanthropic lead as he brings his Manilow Music Project to the Escambia County School District in Florida. The pop icon is donating a Yamaha piano to launch a local music instrument drive. Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument at the Pensacola Bay Center box office in the days prior to his Jan. 28 stop in Pensacola will receive two free tickets (valid for pre-selected seats on a firstcome, first-serve basis) to the show. The Manilow Music Project has conducted music instrument drives all over the country to assist local schools with their music programs.
Barry Manilow is relaunching his multiplecity One Last Time! tour with a concert Jan. 28 in Pensacola.
“I’m thrilled to once again bring the gift of music to these kids,” Manilow said. The box office will serve as the base for the instrument drive in Pensacola through Jan. 28. The instrument drop off location is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
“Escambia County School District is honored to support the Manilow Music Project for our music students in need, said Superintendent Malcolm Thomas. “We know that electives such as band and chorus keep our students in school. “The Barry Manilow Music Project will allow many students who could not afford an instrument to be part of our band programs through the generosity of the public’s donation of instruments. We thank Mr. Manilow for his support for music education in our public schools. We look forward to the generous donations by our community to share the gift of music with our students,” he said. The Manilow Music Project (MMP) is part of The Manilow Fund for Health and Hope. It was formed as a grass roots organization to assist local chari-
ties and programs.

Soprano Elizabeth Caballero will play Violetta in the Pensacola Opera production of “La Traviata.”
Photo, story from Pensacola Opera
Pensacola Opera will present Giuseppe Verdi’s tragic love story, “La Traviata,” at 7:30 p.m. today, Jan. 22, at the Pensacola Saenger Theatre, followed by a matinee performance at 2 p.m. Jan. 24. The opera will be performed in Italian with English supertitles projected above the stage. Ticket prices start at $40. One of the most-performed operas worldwide, “La Traviata” tells the story of a scandalous love affair between a famed Parisian courtesan and a naive nobleman. The ill-fated lovers are torn apart by societal pressures, misunderstanding and ultimately death. The cast for this production features internationally-acclaimed soprano Elizabeth Ca-
ballero as Violetta, Chad Shelton as Alfredo, Todd Thomas as Germont, Amanda Fink as Flora Bervoix, Allison Nicholas as Annina, Nicholas DeMeo as Gastone, Thaddeus Ennen as Baron Douphol, Patrick Jacobs as Marquis d’Obigny, Matthew Queen as Doctor Grenvil and the Commissioner, and Myles Garver as Giuseppe. The production also features the Pensacola Opera Chorus, the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra and members of Ballet Pensacola. While there are only two performances, opera fans can also attend other events associated with the production: • An opening night reception will be held at the theater following the Jan. 22 show. The event features a catered recep-
tion and a chance to meet the cast, directors and conductor. Tickets are $50. • The director’s champagne brunch is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. Jan. 24 at Jackson’s Steakhouse. The event will feature a gourmet brunch and a presentation about “La Traviata” by Pensacola Opera’s Artistic Director Kyle Marrero. Tickets are $50. Reservations for both events must be made in advance by calling 433-6737. Pensacola Opera is a nonprofit, professional company, that produces two to three mainstage operas each year. Pensacola Opera’s next production, “The Merry Widow,” is scheduled for March 11 and March 13. For more information, go to www.pensacolaopera.com.

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.
