Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP) Pharmacy is now accepting electronic prescriptions from civilian doctors for TRICARE beneficiaries. The new electronic prescription process is not just limited to NHP, but is being implemented in most military pharmacies nationwide. An electronic prescription is a computer generated prescription sent by a

health care provider through a private, secure and closed network to a pharmacy. The prescriptions are not sent through the Internet or as an e-mail, so a patient’s personal information is safe. Electronic prescriptions can also reduce prescription errors. “The electronic prescription process can potentially reduce transcription errors that can occur

TRICARE patients must attest to health care coverage By Terri Moon Cronk DoD News, Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON (NNS) – As tax season begins, Defense Department officials want to remind TRICARE beneficiaries of changes in the tax laws, which require all Americans to have health care insurance or potentially pay a tax penalty. For the first time since the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010, all U.S. citizens, including service members, military retirees and their family members, must report health care coverage on their 2014 taxes, said Mark Ellis, a Defense

NMOTC awarded NASP Captain’s Cup for third year in a row By MC2(SW) Kaitlyn C. Boland NMOTC PAO

For the third time in as many years, service members attached to the U.S. Navy’s recognized global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training were awarded the 2014 Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola Captain’s Cup Championship trophy during a ceremony Jan. 20 at the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) Koppy auditorium. Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) Commanding Officer Capt. Paul D. Kane received the award from NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins.

The Captain’s Cup is a series of command teams, individual sporting events, leagues and tournaments held aboard NAS Pensacola. Participants receive points for taking part in various events as well as points for the order in which they finish. Points are totaled at the end of the calendar year with NMOTC claiming the top prize, placing in more than half the events in which they participated. Kane said that while the nature of the Captain’s Cup remains competitive, the concept of command sporting contests reinforces the idea of the commonalities service members share. “The Captain’s Cup Program is important because it

encourages shipmates to break their daily routine and enjoy the competiveness of any available event,” he said. “Any Sailor from NMOTC can participate in these events, which promote teamwork and camaraderie.” NAS Pensacola Captain’s Cup sports this year included: basketball, softball, flag football, soccer, golf, bowling, billiards and darts. Usually there is no prize, save bragging rights; however, if a command wins the trophy three years in a row, they do not have to return the trophy to MWR Sports at the end of the year and are permitted to keep it. Kane said the effort that NMOTC personnel put forth is the reason for taking home the trophy and holding on to the

victory for three years. “Even though I accepted the trophy for the command, it was the Sailors and officers who demonstrated the teamwork, tenacity and friendly competitive nature that brought it home for us,” he said. “These Sailors – and the dozens of others who work every day at jobs which are critical to the naval aviation medical mission – involved the command in a fun and challenging series of events, and I couldn’t be more proud of these men and women, the epitome of NMOTC.” NMOTC, the recognized global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training, reports to Navy Medicine Education and Training

Command (NMETC), which manages Navy Medicine’s formal enlisted and officer education and training programs, medical operational training for medical and medical support personnel deploying worldwide, and training that prepares aviators and flight crews to survive in land and water mishaps. NMOTC and NMETC are all part of the Navy Medicine team, a global health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide high-quality health care to more than 1 million eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ships, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

change to Atsugi, Japan, he deployed aboard USS Independence (CV 62). After deployment, he was selected as a strike fighter tactics instructor (SFTI) and attended TOPGUN, the Navy Fighter Weapons School at NAS Fallon in Nevada. In March of 1997, he reported to the Strike Fighter Weapons School Pacific as a SFTI, where he specialized in F/A-18 mission employment and tactics. In 2000, Mooney reported to the tactical support wing (TSW) as a Selected Reservist (SelRes). In 2003, he mobilized with Strike Fighter Squadron 201 and deployed aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71), where he flew the F/A-18 Hornet in combat missions over Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. At the conclusion of his combat cruise with VFA-201, Mooney was awarded the Naval Air Reserve Pilot of the Year Award. In January 2004, Mooney reported to VFA-204, at NAS New Orleans in Louisiana for an assignment as a squadron department head. While at VFA-204 he was selected for command. Mooney assumed command of Strike Fighter Squadron 125 Squadron Augment Unit (SAU) in November 2009. He then joined the VFC-12 “Fighting Omars” as executive officer in September 2010, at NAS Oceana in Virginia. He commanded VFC-12 from June 2011 to October 2012, during which time the “Omars” earned the 2011 CNO Safety “S” Award, the 2011 CNAF Noel Davis Battle “E” Award, the 2011 CTSW Golden Wrench Award, the 2011 CNRF Golden Anchor Award, The 2011 CNAF Blue “M” Award and the prestigious McCambell Trophy, which recognized VFC-12 as the CNAFR Aviation Squadron of the Year for 2011. He reported to Training Wing One, where he served as the Reserve component commander from January 2013 to January 2015. Mooney has accumulated more than 3,000 flight hours in Navy fighters and more than 350 carrier arrested landings. His decorations include three Meritorious Service Medals, Individual Air Medal (Combat Distinguished Device), Strike Fight Air Medal, two Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals, four Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals and various personal and unit awards.

The act mandates that health care must meet minimum essential coverage, and TRICARE coverage meets that criteria for the majority of service members and their families, Ellis said. TRICARE Prime, TRICARE Standard, TRICARE for Life, TRICARE Overseas, TRICARE Remote and the Uniformed Services Family Health Plan meet the minimum essential coverage, he added.

Scale the dieter’s wall one drumstick at a time By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

O

K, seriously people, this is not fun anymore. It has been two weeks since I started this diet, and I am officially starving. Don’t give me a bunch of baloney (although processed pork products sound mouthwateringly delicious in my weakened state) about how a low-cal protein snack will stave off hunger pangs. A rolled up slice of turkey just isn’t gonna cut it. No matter how many times some rich celebrity – who, incidentally, eats diet meals prepared by her personal chef and has a trainer who comes to her home gym – tells you that “the pounds just melt away,” dieting is hard. Sure, the first few days can be fun. The same way raking leaves seems fun for the first 15 minutes until you realize that it is going to take three hours and you will have to do it every weekend. Or the way cooking dinner seems like fun when you are first married, but then 20 years later, you would rather chew your own arm off than prepare another meal. Or the way running

seems like fun until you come to the end of the second block and suddenly feel as if your heart might explode. Yeah, dieting is kind of like that. By the end of the second week, I want someone to hit me in the head with a frying pan – preferably one that has just fried me up a few crisp slices of bacon – to put me out of my misery. I hit that dieter’s wall this week while shopping at the commissary. The satiating effect of the protein shake I guzzled that morning had worn off, and I was beginning to feel that familiar grumbling in the pit of my stomach. We all know it. That burning in your innards – unnoticeable at first, it slowly builds as you weave through the grocery aisles, until you are ready to grab a cheese ball out of the dairy case and eat it like an apple, cellophane and all. I rushed from my minivan,

Everything was fine in produce, where I followed my grocery list to a tee, except for the bagged lite Caesar salad

kit I decided would make a satisfying diet lunch. I made it through the canned goods, baking supplies and cereal without incident, but as my hunger amassed, things began to unravel in the snack food aisle. With each step, the burning in my gut seared deeper, until I felt as if I might implode like the collapsing core of a supernova, transforming the entire commissary into a giant black hole and destroying civilization as we know it. That’s when it happened. Lying there, on the shelf beside the display of Pringles, I saw it. Some coupon clipper had generously left me a lifeline. “One dollar off five cans,” it read, which seemed such a fantastic deal, it was compulsory. Saliva dripped from my lower lip as I loaded the Pringles into my cart. By the time I approached the check-out area, I had grabbed Oreos, frozen pizza, apple turnovers and a onepound block of cheddar cheese. Blinded by desperation, I caught the tantalizing aroma of roasted chicken. Two rotisserie chickens soon joined the mountain of forbidden foods heaped onto the cashier’s conveyor belt.

While the bagger loaded my groceries into the back of the minivan, I wondered how I could sneak food to the front seat for the drive home. I had done this before. “Oh, I’d better put the chicken up front to keep it warm,” I had fibbed to other baggers during past diets. By the time I pulled into my driveway, my face and steering wheel were slick with grease, and with a drumstick clenched between my teeth, I was a dead ringer for Henry the VIII. But luckily, the opportunity never came. Instead, I barely made it home to my driveway, where I frantically dug through the trunk to find that Caesar salad kit. I stumbled into the house without unloading my groceries and devoured my lunch out of a Tupperware bowl while standing at the kitchen counter. Disaster may have been averted that day, but I won’t sugarcoat the truth – as much as I would love something, anything sugarcoated right about now. I will hit another wall, but I refuse to give up. As long as I can make it over each obstacle, even with a drumstick hanging out of my mouth, I will eventually win the battle.

Defibrillator training integral to NASC Swim Tester Course Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Michael Hathaway NETC PAO

N

ewly qualified swim instructors at the Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC) bring not only aquatic survival and swimming stroke mechanic skills poolside, but also certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) operation. NASC teaches AED use as a component in the Navy Swim Tester Course, Basic Swimming and Water Survival Instructors Course, and Intermediate Water Survival Training Course. While some courses are conducted quarterly and others weekly, combined this training reaches more than 2,000 new students per year. An AED automatically diagnoses life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias and can assist with treatment. In 2009, the secretary of the Navy issued an instruction (SecNavInst 5100.17) to develop, implement, and maintain an installation of automated external defibrillation programs at Department of the Navy commands. According to information from the American Heart Association, AED programs within an organized emergency medical services system have been shown to improve survival in sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) victims. Communities that have implemented programs ensuring widespread public access to AEDs, combined with appropri-

ate training, maintenance, and coordination, have dramatically improved the survival rates from SCA. The American Red Cross website states that SCA is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, and more than 350,000 people will suffer from SCA this year alone. An example of an implemented AED program is the training received during the CPR portion of the NASC Swim Tester Course. Pat Johnson has been an instructor at the training command for the past seven years. “AED is part of the American Red Cross CPR program,” explained Johnson. “We’ve been using it the entire time I’ve been teaching here as part of our courses for Aviation Pre-Flight Indoctrination (API) students and Naval Air Crew Candidate School (NACCS) students. It is also part of the lifeguarding course taught within the Navy Swim Tester Course and the Basic Swimming and Water Survival Instructors Course.” The AED is used in conjunction with administration of CPR

ABEC Maxin Roque and CS2 Travis Miller, students in the Basic Swimmer and Water Survival Instructor Course at Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC), demonstrate how to use the automated external defibrillator (AED) in conjunction with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). AED instruction is conducted as a part of multiple courses at NASC to increase Sailors’ and instructors’ ability to react quickly in life-saving situations.

as part of the “cardiac chain of survival.” “Each minute CPR and defibrillation are delayed, a victim’s chance for survival is reduced by about 10 percent. Most people would be able to use an AED with no prior experience,” said Johnson. “AEDs typically have voice prompts that make them easy to use and understand, even if someone hasn’t had specific training with the device.” The Red Cross claims that an

AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest and is an easy to operate tool for someone with no medical background. “Working in the medical field, it is a top priority to stay current with my medical skills. After receiving AED instruction, I feel confident to handle life-threatening emergencies that might arise when instructing my swimmers course,” said HM1 Ryan Gordon, an inde-

pendent duty corpsman at SEAL Team 18. “Being prepared makes all the difference. It’s imperative that everyone know how to work an AED, regardless of your rate or job; the AED is very user friendly and makes a big difference in saving lives.” Gordon received AED training as part of the Navy Swim Tester Course.

From research to railgun: Revolutionary weapon at Future Force EXPO From Office of Naval Research Public Affairs

ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) – The electromagnetic railgun – a weapon that will play a significant role in the future of the U.S. Navy – will be on display to the public for the first time on the East Coast Feb. 4-5 at the Naval Future Force Science and Technology (S&T) EXPO in Washington, D.C., officials at the Office of Naval Research (ONR) announced Jan. 13.With Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert set as the event’s keynote speaker on Feb. 4, the EXPO promises to be a window into the future of the U.S. Navy, showcasing the latest advances in power projection and force protection. “This year’s expo will showcase the naval portfolio of innovative breakthrough technologies that are shaping our warfighting tactics today and changing

the way our Sailors and Marines will operate in the future,” said Chief of Naval Research (CNR) Rear Adm. Mat Winter. “The electromagnetic railgun is among several disruptive capabilities that the Naval Research Enterprise is championing to ensure a dominant, capable and

relevant naval force for the future.” Experts from ONR, Naval Sea Systems Command and BAE Systems Inc. will be on hand at the display and in breakout sessions to address the technical developments of the weapon. The railgun program continues to

move toward scheduled at-sea testing in 2016. Its revolutionary technology relies on electricity instead of traditional chemical propellants, with magnetic fields created by high electrical currents launching projectiles at distances more than 100 nautical miles – and at speeds that exceed Mach 6, or six times the speed of sound. That velocity allows the weapon’s projectiles to rely on kinetic energy for maximum effect, and reduces the amount of high explosives needed to be carried on ships. It also minimizes the dangers of unexploded ordnance remaining on the battlefield. The event also will feature unique one-on-one opportunities for dialogue in breakout sessions with ONR program managers. More information about the event, and how to register, can be found at http://www.onr.navy.mil/expo.

NSWC PCD, ONR and U of MT conduct heated undergarment technology evaluation program By John P. Klose Underwater Systems Development and Acquisition Branch (Code E15), Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Divisions

P

ANAMA CITY – Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) researchers have demonstrated a breakthrough diver thermal protection technology that can warm divers indefinitely in very cold water using four to six times less power than previously designed systems. The Office of Naval Research (ONR) funded research primarily conducted at NSWC PCD in Panama City this past year, identified the safe and highly-efficient, electricallyheated, diver thermal undergarments using carbon nano core fibers, or CNC, are effective. The next step is to transition this technology into both dry and wet cold environment applications and develop missionspecific prototype garments for further testing. The technology was developed through a collaborative ONR “Swampworks” research effort between NSWC PCD, the University of Montana’s Center for Work Physiology and Exercise Metabolism (WPEM), and defense contractors SAIC and the Coliant Corporation. The U.S. Navy in Panama City has been investigating diver thermal protection technologies since the SeaLab ex-

periments in the 1960s. Since salt water freezes at a lower temperature than fresh water, ocean temperatures in winter can reach as low as 29 degrees, creating a very challenging environment in which Navy divers must operate.

hours and executing in excess of 25,000 syllabus events. Furthermore, he directed a review and facilitated an upgrade to the formation and tactics training curriculum for the student aviators. Safety in flight has been a consistent theme during his tenure, and HT-18 has continued a streak of more than 42 years without a class “A” mishap and successfully completed two command safety assessments as well as a positive safety culture workshop under his command. Coleman’s support as executive officer has certainly

played an important role in HT-18’s successes, and he will strive to continue the unit’s tradition of excellence as commanding officer. His career spans duty as an enlisted Marine during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm before graduating from Rutgers University in 1993 and gaining his commission. He completed helicopter flight training with HT-8 at NAS Whiting Field, becoming a naval aviator in 1996. Following assignments included service with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 263 (HMM-263);

Lt. Col. Rafford Coleman

Cmdr. Kevin Pickard Jr.

duty as a flight instructor with HT-8; deployment to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom; assignment to 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division and subsequent support of Operation Secure Tomorrow in Haiti; service with HMM-261; and transfer to MAG-26 at New River, N.C. More recently, Coleman participated in flood relief efforts in Thailand as the expeditionary operations officer for the III Marine Expeditionary Force from 2011 to 2013. He assumed duties as the executive officer of HT-18 in October 2013. He has accumulated more than 3,200 flight hours to this point in his career in a va-

riety of fixed wing and rotary aircraft. Pickard leaves the “Vigilant Eagles” to accept orders as the navigator for the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69). This will serve as the next step in his 18-year career that saw him fly with the “Black Stallions” of HC-4, the “Gunbearers” of HC-11 and the “Island Knights” of HSC-3 in Guam. He also completed tours as the flag lieutenant for Carrier Strike Group Two and a military affairs officer for the U.S. Department of State prior to his assignment to HT-18. Cmdr. Brian Sanderson will replace Coleman as the executive officer for the squadron.

CDC water testing results show safe drinking water in the CDC facility By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

According to the results from the testing conducted by the Navy in November, Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s supply of water to the Child Development Center (CDC) continues to exceed standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency. The Navy conducted lead testing on the water outlets at the CDC Nov. 17-18 as part of a nationwide effort to review facilities which could affect children. The testing is part of the Navy’s “Lead in Priority Areas” water testing procedures which will take additional precau-

tions in protecting children from potential lead exposure. Schools and childcare facilities have been made a priority due to children being more susceptible to lead exposure. Twenty-eight water outlets were examined during the two-day test with a measurement of 20 partsper-billion established as the threshold for further action. Only one of the 28 outlets tested above the set limit, and that was a utility faucet which was used for neither drinking nor food preparation. Following detection, the outlet was secured and scheduled for retesting. The retest detected no

measurable levels of lead in the water. The likely reason for the initial outlying test result was particulates caught in the faucet aerator, which was removed and cleaned prior to the retest. Although NASWF’s water supply meets regulatory standards for lead, there is the possibility that a specific building could have increased levels due to the presence of lead in older faucets or distribution points. The Navy established testing requirements that sampled water from the faucets of the CDC on Whiting Field, which is a preventative measure used to identify any

lead issues and ensure the continued safety and wellness of the children on base. “There are no known lead issues on this base, this is part of a proactive measure by the Navy which is going above and beyond what the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires,” Jon Croci, NASWF Drinking Water Manager stated before the initial testing. The high-quality test results highlight the quality of the water at NAS Whiting Field and the safety of the CDC for the children and facility employees. The next step in the process is for official notification letters to be sent to parents, informing them of the testing results.

Blood Donor Month

By Lt. Carrie Sanders U.S. Fleet Forces Command, Norfolk/All Hands magazine

hen I was pregnant with my second daughter, Clara, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I worried about my life and the life of my unborn daughter. There was never a choice for my husband and me as to whether we were going to continue on with the pregnancy, even though we knew the cancer could spread. After my daughter was born I was set to have a total hysterectomy. The surgery went well. However, 24 hours later I started having major complications. I was clinging to life. It became obvious that something was very wrong. The cancer didn’t kill me, but the surgery was trying to. The doctors brought me in for an emergency surgery to see what was going on. Apparently, I had some major blood clotting and hemorrhaging at the same time. The doctors fixed the clot and tied up all the

leaks, but I had a lot of blood loss. The doctors thought perhaps they could wait a little while and I would naturally restore my own blood. However, my blood oxygen level decreased. They let me know that I had to make the choice to have a transfusion, but I didn’t want one. I was a kid in the ’80s when everybody talked about AIDS and needles, and I did not want another person’s blood inside me. I pondered this decision for hours while I was in a state of relative consciousness. Finally, a wonderful nurse came in and said that she understood how I felt because she had to have a transfusion about three years earlier after an accident. She explained

that she wouldn’t have even been there to help me had she not received the transfusion. I realized if I didn’t accept the blood transfusion that I might not be there for my daughters any longer. So I consented, and within minutes they had a few pints of some stranger’s blood pouring into me. Within moments it seemed like I felt better. I was able to go home from the hospital a few days later and hold my baby girl. I was able to look

back very quickly and realize how much different life could have been had I never been pregnant, had they never found the cancer when they did, had I not opted for the surgery, had that nurse not eased me with her story about her own blood transfusion and her own concerns and worries ... But more significantly, I thought about that anonymous donor who one day gave blood not knowing if it would even really help someone. It did help someone.

The anonymous person that donated O negative blood sometime before June of 2010 in Hawaii saved my life. He or she must not have had a sweet tooth because my love for sugar wasn’t present for a few months, which is how long they say the blood stays in your system. I think about what my daughters’ lives would be like if I didn’t choose to have the transfusion and I can’t help but start to cry. A blood donor saved my life. I have a new anniver-

sary, the anniversary of the day I was given life by a perfect stranger. Donate blood – please. It truly saves lives. It saved mine. During January, National Blood Donor Month, what better way to celebrate than by spending an hour doing something that may give someone a lifetime?

American Red Cross launches ‘SleevesUp’ virtual blood drives From http://www.redcross.org American Red Cross

January is National Blood Donor Month and this year, American Red Cross supporters have a new way to help save lives through blood and platelet donation with SleevesUp virtual blood drives. The opportunity comes at a time when donations are especially needed. SleevesUp is a first-of-its-kind website that lets those who feel passionate about blood donation create a virtual blood drive and encourage colleagues, friends and family members to give blood or platelets, or make a financial donation to support their campaign. SleevesUp campaigns allow people to honor someone’s life, celebrate a special occasion or simply bring others together to help save lives – any time of the year – regardless of location. SleevesUp is one of many ways individuals and groups can celebrate National Blood Donor Month, which has been observed in January since 1970 and

Once a campaign is created, others can pledge their support immediately by making an appointment to donate blood or platelets at a blood drive or donation center convenient for them. Eligible donors with all blood types, particularly O negative, A negative and B negative, and platelet donors are encouraged to make an appointment to give.

Blue Angels begin 2015 winter training By Lt.j.g. Amber Lynn Daniel Blue Angels Public Affairs Officer

I

t is a new year, and the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, are already hard at work preparing for the 2015 air show season. Earlier this month the entire squadron relocated from its headquarters in Pensacola to its annual training facility in sunny El Centro, Calif., and the team is thrilled to be back in the skies doing what it does best. Each week begins with an aggressive flight schedule – two to three flights a day for both the diamond formation (which includes Boss and pilots 2, 3 and 4) and the solos (pilots 5 and 6). Flying the demonstration is a physically demanding task, and practicing this many times a day – from sunup to sundown – means every member of the team must bring their “A” game. With the flight schedule in full force, I was offered a chance to take a back-seat ride. This was my first one with the 2015 team, and although our new pilots have only been flying training flights together for a week, they are already looking sharp. Flight training begins by practicing formation flying and basic maneuvers. With each flight, the new team sets the building

blocks for more complicated maneuvers. But there are no “easy” flights – every flight requires precision and total concentration. During these initial flights the pilots learn what markers on the jet to focus on (Also known as “flying paint” – for many maneuvers, pilots 2 and 3 fly formation by focusing their eyes on specific points on Boss’ jet) and how to move the plane for each particular maneuver. By the first show March 14, they will have flown more than 120 training flights; the culmination of those flights at the El Centro Air Show will demonstrate the world-renowned 18-inch wingtip-to-canopy separation the Blue Angels are known for. As the public affairs officer, I am fortunate to often be

granted the opportunity of flying in the back seat during practices. I’m often asked, “What is it like to ride in the back of a jet?” This can be tough to explain, but I’ll try. Think of it as trying to drive a car while someone continues to add and remove sacks of flour on your body. These sacks each weigh the same weight as your body. For some maneuvers, the pilots will experience seven Gs (G is short for gravitational force) – the equivalent of seven of those sacks of flour pushing down on you.

During my practice ride, the team focused on maneuvers that are relatively low G, mostly two to three. Although it doesn’t sound like much, don’t be fooled ... After an hour in the backseat, I emerged from the jet covered in sweat and shaking with the effort of sustaining alternating low G forces. It made me appreciate the efforts the pilots go through – the same efforts Navy pilots around the world face around the world, around the clock. It isn’t an easy job – but they make it

look that way. We will be periodically checking back in to the Navy Live online blog to update you on the team’s progress. This is America’s Navy, and the Blue Angels are your flight demonstration team. It is an honor and a privilege to wear the Blue Angel flight suit, and we will continue to work hard to perform to the standards set by our predecessors all the way back in 1946. Wish us luck and clear skies. For more, visit http://www. blueangels. navy. mil.

Free tax preparation, advice available to military families By Nick Simeone DoD News, Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON (NNS) – With the new year comes the annual dread of tax-filing season and the confusion and stress that can go along with it, especially for military families whose tax returns can be further complicated by frequent relocations, involvement of rental properties and other aspects of military life. To ease the burden, the Defense Department, through Military OneSource, is teaming again this year with H&R Block to offer no-cost tax preparation to the military community with a promise of guaranteed accuracy, a service that otherwise could cost military families hundreds of dollars or more. • No-cost consultation, tax prepa-

ration: Military OneSource offers nocost tax consultation and no-cost tax preparation and filing to service and family members, as well as to reservists regardless of activation status, survivors, and separated service members until 180 days after their retirement, discharge or end-of-tour date, said Anthony Jackson, a Military OneSource program analyst. Because it’s online, the service is available to eligible tax-filers regardless

of where they are. “They can do one federal and up to three state tax returns – again, at no cost to the service or family member,” Jackson said. • New features this year: This year, Jackson said, the service is adding features to accommodate those with special tax-filing needs. “If your tax situation includes rental property, charitable deductions or mortgage interest, this software can accommodate those particular situations,” he said. Tax experts also are available by phone at no cost for anyone who may have questions before they get down to using the online tax preparation software. “You’re getting individuals when you’re talking – tax consultants who are

thoroughly educated on the military situation, no matter what it is,” Jackson said, including knowledge of special tax exemptions for combat duty and other situations unique to the military. The tax service being offered by Military OneSource was activated earlier this month. Military OneSource was established by the Defense Department in 2002 to provide comprehensive information on military life free of charge. If you have questions about the tax services available or about preparing your own tax returns, call 1 (800) 3429647 and ask to speak with a Military OneSource tax consultant. Trained tax consultants are available seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. (CST). Information is also available online at www.militaryonesource.mil/taxes.

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.
