TOPGUN detachment returns to NASP for training Story, photo by Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

NAS Pensacola’s Forrest Sherman Field got another chance to serve as temporary home base for students and instructors from Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center (NSAWC-N7) “TOPGUN” from Jan. 13 to Jan. 24. It was a repeat of the group’s October 2012 visit to NAS Pensacola for air-to-air fighter training, specifically Basic Fighter Maneuvers (dogfighting), and TOPGUN commanding officer, Cmdr. Kevin McLaughlin, was happy to be back. “We have wonderful support here,” he said. “The facilities are fantastic and for a lot of us, in fact all of us, it is a lot like coming home since everybody has come through Pensacola during a portion of their career in the beginning.” The detachment of eight aircrews with approximately 15 aircraft included several “adversary jets” – light blue camouflage F18s painted with red stars and desert-tan F-16s. The Navy Fighter Weapon

Aircraft from Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center (NSAWC-N7) “TOPGUN” were temporarily based at Forrest Sherman Field aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola from Jan. 13 to Jan. 24 for air-to-air fighter training.

School (N7) teaches advanced methods of strike-fighter employment through the Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor (SFTI) course. The SFTI program evolved from the Navy Fighter Weapons School (NFWS) established in 1969 at the former Naval Air Station Miramar in California. In 1996, the special-

ized NFWS was merged into the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center at Naval Air Station (NAS) Fallon in Nevada. McLaughlin said TOPGUN is basically a graduate level course in tactics and employment. The students also are groomed to be teachers. The roughly 10-week course is taught four times a year

and approximately 32 aircrews go through the program each year. During the beginning dogfighting phase, the group travels to various locations for BFM (basic fighter maneuvers). The field elevation at NAS Fallon is about 4,000 feet, and during the winter, the weather

can be a problem, McLaughlin said. TOPGUN looks for alternate locations with more suitable winter weather and sea-level elevation to better support training. Pensacola meets both requirements. “Pensacola has a wonderful area in which we can fight, just south of the field,” McLaughlin said. “It is very close from the field, so we can fight down to relatively low fuel states.” Other locations where BFM training can be conducted include NAS Key West, MCAS Miramar, NAS Lemoore and NAS Oceana. The dogfighting phase involves roughly seven flights for each student, McLaughlin said, and students do not always get positive evaluations. “Not a single student gets through unscathed,” he said. “They usually re-fly at least a couple flights.” This is the second TOPGUN tour of duty for McLaughlin, 44, a veteran aviator with 3,500 flight hours to his credit. McLaughlin said he was thrilled to return as the TOPGUN CO. “It is an honor to be here,

CNIC delivers Emergency Ops Center Incident Management Team course at NASP From Staff Reports

CNIC’s mobile training team delivered an anti-terrorism and emergency preparedness training session at NAS Pensacola Jan. 15-17. The Incident Management Team course, led by two CNIC instructors, taught 25 students from NAS Pensacola, NAS Whiting Field and NSA Panama City. This course was conceived after installation commanding officers and

region staff requested a mobile delivery of the popular Shore Training Center (STC) San Diego course. The class included first responders from Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast and NASP Security, with specialists from NASP Air Operations, Port Operations, the chaplain’s office and others. Personnel learned FEMA procedures on how to properly serve the station and community during an emergency. The course

reviewed team member responsibilities, knowledge management,

resource and information management and communications, including practi-

cal application lab exercises for students to apply knowledge gained from

lectures. NASP Executive Officer Cmdr. David Jasso found the training useful. “In short, the training was invaluable,” he noted. “Here in the near future, we will roll into Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield training ... and more importantly, in several months, will begin retraining the installation for hurricane season. The training we received helped me reestablish our EOC watchbill in preparation for upcoming requirements.”

NSWC PCD recognizes healthy state of affairs, unveils new strategy, presents annual awards By Jeff Prater NSWC PCD Public Affairs Officer

PANAMA CITY, FL (NNS) – Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) held its annual State of the Station address and 37th annual awards ceremony Jan. 16 in the Long Glass Conference Center in Panama City, Fla. Additionally, the command’s new strategy was rolled out at this forum. Historically, the annual State of the Station address serves as a year in review of technical excellence and warfighter support. While this year’s address from newly appointed Technical Director Ed Stewart did look back at a year’s worth of technical support. It also looked forward as he delivered new goals, objectives and vision. NSWC PCD Commanding Officer Capt. Scott Pratt, along with Stewart, unveiled the new organizational strategy with the refined vision, “Technical Center of Excellence for Littoral Warfare and Coastal Defense,” which also triggers a change in organizational referencing from a Navy laboratory to a Navy Technical Center of Excellence. Overall, Stewart gave the Panama City-based surface warfare center a healthy report card with a bright future and said that “if we continue to make excellence a habit, the state of the station will remain strong and we will be able to leverage our technical competencies and organization resources in order to provide the best solutions to the current and future

needs to defend the nation.” The NSWC PCD annual award ceremony dates back to 1975 when Orman R. Holley received the first command excellence award that is still referred to today as the commanding officer/technical director, or CO/TD award. The ceremony recognizes warfare center employees who have gone above and beyond in the performance of their duties. Recipients chosen for awards represent less than one percent of a workforce of approximately 1,325 employees. “Given the depth and breadth of the achievements of our winners, those nominated but not selected should really hold their heads high because the competition was fierce and selection was very difficult, because we have so many success stories to celebrate this year,” said Stewart. The CO/TD award categories recognize noteworthy accomplishments and contributions in the

areas of: collaboration, leadership, fleet support, innovation, organizational support, program success, technical and scientific and engineering achievement. The NSWC PCD Annual Award winners were: Collaboration Excellence Award – Bryan Johnson was the project manager for the MK 18 Small Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) project. E x e m p l a r y Leadership Award – Phil Bernstein led the Unmanned Systems Technology Branch with vision, always keeping a focus on the things that matter most – supporting the warfighter, executing with excellence, and providing useful products and services. Outstanding Fleet Support Award – Robert Coffey was the Mine Hunting Sonar Fleet Support Project Engineer and led his team to

achieve a significant accomplishment when the Mine Hunting Sonar system achieved a zeroCasualty Reporting System status, throughout the entire U.S. Navy, for the first time in more than 15 years. Achieving zero casualties was the result of seven years of steady innovative work by Coffey. Outstanding Innovation Award – Pedro Bracho, in analyzing operational and integration testing of the Remote Minehunting System (RMS) with the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), noted launch and recovery problems that were resulting in damage to the RMS Vehicle. Outstanding Organizational Support Award – Wanda Cutchin

is recognized as an exceptional contracting officer and has done a phenomenal job of leading her employees through numerous changes over the past year to include changes with the new and Enterprise Resource Planning system. Outstanding Program Success Award – Robert Backus has led local Deployable Joint Command and Control (DJC2) program efforts in various capacities for nearly a decade. His leadership and contributions began as the Acquisition Engineering Agent with the delivery of six full systems to U.S. Southern Command, U.S. European Command and U.S. Pacific Command. Technical Excellence Award – Rich Byers lead

the government team for the Seafox Urgent Operational Need. The team was tasked to rapidly integrate the Seafox Mine Neutralization capability onto the Avenger Class Mine Countermeasures ships, as well as support the upgrade of the Rapid Deployment Capability Seafox systems aboard the MH-53E helicopter. Dr. David P. Skinner Award for Outstanding Scientific & Engineering Achievement – Jose Fernandez is recognized as one of the U.S. Navy’s premier experts in the field of Synthetic Aperture Sonar technology as applied to the detection, classification, and identification of underwater mines and Unexploded Ordnance.

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,

I have an unbelievably strong cadre of instructors that work for me,” he said. He is impressed with the skills of the TOPGUN pilots. Each hand-picked student typically has 1,000 hours of flying in an F-18, and they have usually completed at least one deployment. “What we are seeing as time evolves, is that while the schedules are very, very difficult on the military and their families, the product that shows up at TOPGUN is very good and very polished because they have had a lot of experience overseas,” he said. McLaughlin also is optimistic about the future of the program. There have been some delays, but TOPGUN will eventually be in the F-35 business, he said. “We are already beginning developing tactics for the F-35,” he said. “We have a number of instructors on the staff that spend a lot of time working with the engineers and flying the simulator to develop what is going to be coming down the pike.”

Beware: Cyber dream can turn into a nightmare By Lt. j.g. Tadd C. Blair Region Legal Service Office Southeast

Can you imagine life without the internet? For most of us, the internet is essential to almost every aspect of our life. We use e-mail to communicate at work. We attend virtual meetings and trainings. We keep in touch with loved ones. The internet allows us to look up the answer to any question in the blink of an eye and download that song we just can’t get out of our head. The cyber dream can also quickly turn into a nightmare that could cost thousands of dollars. Recently, there have been increasing numbers of individuals who have been

notified by their internet provider that their Internet Protocol (“IP”) address has been identified as a copyright infringer. A letter is sent that explains that some entity has filed a lawsuit alleging a copyright infringement has been committed (usually an improper file upload/download). In most of cases, the entity sends a long list of IP addresses to internet providers requesting that they release the personal identifying information associated with each IP address. For some, this is the first time they realize that they may have downloaded something illegally. For others, they realize that their IP address has been compromised and that they should have secured their wireless

router or uninstalled a file sharing program; the IP address could be wrong and the customer associated with that IP address may have never even downloaded any copyrighted material. Whether you downloaded something without thinking, used a file sharing software (e.g. Bit Torrent, Pirate Bay, Gnutella), or think your neighbor may have been mooching off of your router, you could be held liable for copyright infringement and ordered to pay anywhere between $200 and $150,000 in damages, in addition to attorney fees and court costs. Even if you (or your mooching neighbor) never actually downloaded the copyrighted material, release

of your information by your internet provider could lead to threats to settle the case, still potentially costing thousands of dollars. The letter usually informs you that your name, address, and other information connected with your IP address may be released if you do not take action by a certain date. If you receive a letter, it is essential that you see an attorney as soon as possible, as they can help drop your name as a defendant in a lawsuit, get the case dismissed or help prove that you should not be held liable. Think before you download. Just as you would not steal a CD from a store, you shouldn’t download something without permission. File sharing pro-

USERRA protects job rights for military service By Lt. j.g. Brian T. Henning Region Legal Service Office Southeast

The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) is a federal law that protects the job rights of service members who have voluntarily or involuntarily left civilian jobs to serve in the military. Under USERRA, service members have the right to be reemployed in their civilian job if they leave that job to perform military service, so long as: • The employer receives advance notice of the service member’s service; • The total length of all absences from civilian employment by reason of service in the military does not exceed five years; • The service member returns to work

or applies for reemployment in a timely manner after military service has ended; and • The service member has not been separated from service with a disqualifying discharge or under other than honorable conditions. If all of these requirements have been met, employers must restore service members to the position (both job position and benefits) that they would have been in if they had not left the civilian job to perform military service. Under USERRA, those who have served or will serve in the military cannot be denied certain rights by civilian employers. These rights include initial employment, reemployment, retention in employment, promotion, or any benefit of

employment by an employer on the basis of the employee’s military service or the employee’s application to serve in the military. Under USERRA, servicemembers and dependants can continue employer-based health plan coverage while serving in the military. The maximum period of coverage is the lesser of: • 24 months from the date on which the service member’s absence begins; or • The day after the date on which the service member fails to apply for or return to a position of employment. If you believe your rights have been violated or if you have any other questions, contact your local legal assistance office.

grams may seem like a great way to build your music collection or catch up on that episode you missed, but much of this “free” entertainment is copyrighted. No act online is private, every visit can be tracked. If your network is not secure, not only can your neighbors slow down your internet, but they could download something illegally. If you can’t prove that you were not the one who downloaded the file, then you may still be on the hook. If you secure your wireless router and think before you click, you can live the cyber dream without exposing yourself to a cyber nightmare. If you have any questions, contact your local legal assistance office.

Naval Aerospace Medical Institute hosts aeromedical conference at NASP From Navy Medicine Operational Training Center PAO

Members of a U.S. Navy organization dedicated to supporting Navy and Marine Corps aviation units hosted the U.S. Navy Aeromedical Conference Jan. 1417 aboard NAS Pensacola. Fleet-wide operational aviation medicine technicians (AVT), flight surgeons and aerospace physiologists from Navy and Marine Corps units – as well as U.S. Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard service members, attended the U.S. Naval Aeromedical Conference, a forum for flight surgeons, physiologists and AVTs to discuss matters important to their community. Attendees also attended lectures from experts in particular areas of aviation medicine and shared ideas, something Naval Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) Officer-in-Charge Capt. Charles Ciccone said is integral to the continued success Navy aeromedical personnel have historically employed. “The theme of the conference, ‘Distance Medicine and EnRoute Care,’ provided an outstanding opportunity for a joint learning environment and provided a critical update to our joint aeromedical operational forces who are directly supporting overseas contingency operations for the global war on terrorism,” he said. Deputy Chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BuMed), and Deputy Surgeon General Rear Adm. Michael Mittelman and Commander, 81st Medical Group U.S. Air Force, Brig. Gen.

Kory Cornum, also attended the three-day event. Ciccone said NAMI is the Navy’s recognized expert in aerospace medicine and provides aeromedical consultation services, develops aeromedical standards and provides training to Navy, joint, and allied aeromedical personnel. NAMI hosts the event to ensure communication between members of the aerospace medicine community. “We train commissioned and enlisted aeromedical personnel for naval aviation,” Ciccone said. “The U.S. Naval Aeromedical Conference allows us to update our aeromedical personnel on the latest and best advances and allows us to remain on the cutting edge of aerospace medicine.” The conference showcased a series of open-forum lectures as well as breakout sessions including topics such as radiation health and nuclear field duty, aviation safety perspectives in aeromedical transport and an update from the U.S. Army’s Flight Paramedic Program. The conference is one of the few military conferences specifically tailored toward aviation medicine. Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) Commanding Officer Capt. James Norton said the conference underscores the important role aviation medical personnel play in global operations on a daily basis, citing the specific and often difficult tasking with which these men and women often face. “Naval aviation’s role in contingency operations has remained at the forefront of con-

flicts for the past several decades,” he said. “U.S. naval flight surgeons and aerospace physiologists who clear the pilots to fly these missions, train them on aviation sensory and acceleration physiology, life-support systems, egress and water survival. They provide a service that directly impacts each and every naval aviator. This is a highly specific and demanding area of Navy medicine, and the service members who are part of this community are some of the best in the world.” Navy aerospace physiologists are involved in survival training, research, development, testing

and evaluation to improve aviator performance and aircrew survivability and aeromedical operational and safety programs. NAMI is a component of NMOTC, the recognized global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training, which 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. NAMI, 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.

Navy medicine leadership highlight priorities in new video By Shoshona Pilip-Florea U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (NNS) –The Navy Surgeon General publicly released a video Jan. 15, detailing his priorities for the Navy medicine enterprise moving into the New Year and beyond. The video is posted on the Navy medicine YouTube site at: http://www.youtube. com/ watch?v= 49MaUXJVyts The video is also available for download on the Surgeon General’s Corner on the Navy medicine website at: http://www.med.navy. mil/ leadership/ sgvisits/ Pages/default.aspx The priorities, which are readiness, value, and jointness, were developed and fine-tuned by senior officer and enlisted Navy medicine leadership throughout a series of workshops held in 2012. In the video message to his 63,000-person organization, Vice Adm. Matthew L. Nathan, U.S. Navy surgeon general and chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, explained each of the priorities and what they mean for

the future of Navy medicine and the environment the organization is operating in today. Nathan emphasized the importance of readiness, not only of his own Navy medicine personnel, but also the importance of their role in maintaining the readiness of the fleet. “Readiness is job one,” said Nathan. “We provide worldclass care, anytime, anywhere. It is our hallmark, our ethos, so we’ve got to be sharp, on point to do what’s necessary to maintain that readiness.” Nathan also acknowledged the current fiscal constraints and the realities facing the military health care industry today and what he believes must be done to successfully maneuver it without impacting the quality of care. “In today’s fiscal resource conservation, we’ve got to look for the value in all we do,” he said. “Let’s evaluate everything we do, especially as we transition to operating in a peacetime care dynamic. We’ve got to be razorsharp in quality, efficiency and value and we need to be thinking about this all the time.” Nathan’s final priority recognized the move toward a

more joint environment and aimed to capitalize on the strengths of these joint opportunities. “Jointness is key,” Nathan said. “There’s more strength together than there is apart. We’re finding the synergy with our sister services and other partners. We’re sharing what we know and learning what others know and building a better team together. That’s critical.” Nathan’s goal is for every member of the Navy medicine team – from the doctors, nurses and health care administrators at a medical treatment facility to an independent duty corpsman on a submarine – to know and recognize not only the priorities of Navy medicine, but also how each of them relates to their own job. “I am looking to my leaders on the officer, enlisted, civilian and contract levels to all engage with their folks and relate these priorities to their commands and jobs,” he said to his staff upon release of the video. “Open and transparent communication is a leadership imperative and an expectation I have of all my team members.” Nathan leads a global health care network of more than 63,000 Navy medical personnel around the world who provide high quality health care to more than one million eligible beneficiaries. Navy medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ship, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

Emergency responder’s home damaged in blaze From NASWF PAO

As a Navy aviation boatswain’s mate, ABH3 Nathan Henkin is trained to fight and extinguish aircraft fires on airfields and on board ship. However, on Jan. 9, he and his family experienced the other side of a fire, as the victims. Fortunately, the family members all escaped injury as two fires raged through the house they were renting at the intersection of Hamilton Bridge Road and Glover Lane in Milton. The first fire was noticed shortly after midnight when Henkin went to shut off the garage lights. Smoke filled the space and he was able to see flames. Henkin got his wife, Heather, and three children out of the house, and called 9-1-1. Teams responded from Skyline and Milton fire departments, and the fire was extinguished about 2 a.m. Damage was mostly limited to the garage area at this point. Grabbing a few possessions, he took the

family to a friend’s house where they stayed the night, but a short while after their arrival, the family received another shock. The fire had flared up again, ruining the rest of the house. Henkin drove back to the house by himself the next morning to see if anything was salvageable, but there was little left. “The damage to the garage upset me, but when

I went back and saw the house, I knew everything was gone,” Henkin said. Along with his eight years as a military fire fighter – the last two with Naval Air Station Whiting Field, Henkin endured a similar experience as a child when his parents’ house was damaged by a fire. So he was somewhat prepared for the emotions involved with starting over. It was more difficult

for his wife. “It was hard. I’ve never been through anything like that,” Heather Henkin emphasized. “You just never think it will happen to you.” Despite the tragedy, however, the one good thing that the family has been able to realize is the outpouring of goodwill from the community. Members of his department, local veterans, the

base Navy/Marine Corps Relief Society, the Fleet and Family Support Center, local friends and more have reached out to help them in their need. Clothes and toys have been donated for the children. Lodging was immediately procured in military housing and furniture was either purchased on their behalf or loaned to them from the base’s loaner locker. Their pressing

needs were taken care of to help them get back on their feet. It doesn’t restore all that was lost, but it has been a blessing for the family. “People from the community have helped us out tremendously as we try to get through this. It’s helped a lot, I mean, the next day our kids had new clothes to wear,” Henkin said. “It has been more than we could have ever asked for.”

NASWF’s Assistant Fire Chief Volturo retires From NASWF PAO

Surrounded by firefighters old and new, Assistant Fire Chief Steve Volturo was recognized for a long and distinguished career protecting those who defend the country. For more than 35 years, Volturo worked with, sweated beside, and trained firefighters at Naval Air Station Whiting Field. Including a short stint at NAS Pensacola, his career spanned 38 years – first as a military firefighter and later, upon his honorable discharge, a civilian firefighter on the base. It is a career that garnered a great deal of admiration from those within the brotherhood. “Chief Volturo served with love and respect for his fellow firefighters and with love and respect for the department,” Deputy Chief Dan Chiappetta stated to the assembled guests during the official welcome. He did it to make a difference, and chief, you made a difference.” Following the welcome, Chiappetta invited the guests to enjoy some firehouse cooking of fried mullet, hushpuppies, coleslaw and iced tea. During the luncheon, traditional gifts such as a firefighter’s bible, a shadow box, a framed photograph and several plaques were presented to Volturo to thank him for his years of service.

28, T-34, H-1 and TH-57 aircraft. Two weeks after his tour of duty was up, he became a federal firefighter, using many of the same skills he learned in the Navy. He progressed up the chain until he accepted a billet as the assistant chief of operations at NAS Pensacola where he served for two years until he transferred back to NAS Whiting Field to finish out his career. As he took his turn with the microphone, Volturo thanked the retired firefighters who had trained him, and praised the guys still serving today. “You all are a great bunch of guys,” he said. “Professional guys. The diligence and work ethic it takes to be a professional firefighter is phenomenal. As other people run away from danger, these guys rush in, and I couldn’t be prouder of them.” Serving in one area for 38 years is highly unusual, especially in a Navy base where most people only get to experience short tours before having to move on. For Volturo, however, this was an area he never wanted to leave. “I love Whiting Field. Capt. Coughlin is the 19th commanding officer I’ve worked for here,” he said. “This is a great place to work. This is my home, and it is all the people that make it so special.”

Cervical Health Awareness Month 2013: ‘We have the means to prevent cervical cancer; let’s find the will’ From National Cervical Cancer Coalition

A

s January 2013 is recognized for being Cervical Health Awareness Month, the American Sexual Health Association (ASHA) and the National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC) is calling for expanded access to life-saving screening tests and vaccines. Each year in the United States, approximately 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and more than 4,000 die as a result. The numbers are even more sobering globally; approximately 80 percent of deaths from cervical cancer occur in the developing world. In both the U.S. and around the world, the disease disproportionately impacts poor women. “Cervical cancer is preventable through vaccines and screening tests,” ASHA/NCCC President and CEO Lynn B. Barclay said. “Making sure these tools reach the most vulnerable women is critical, of course, but so are efforts to educate women about the disease. Accurate, culturally-sensitive information and access to care are an unbeatable combination.” It’s also important to reach out to health care providers, Barclay said. “Only about 35 percent of girls and young women who are eligible for these vaccines have completed the three-dose series. Parents are strongly influenced by the recommendations of the family doctor or nurse, so we’ll continue developing cervical cancer information and counseling tools designed specifically for health professionals.” ASHA and NCCC address the challenges of cervical cancer prevention by offering numerous programs that include national advocacy, publications and interactive services that provide education and support for patients, families and health professionals. For more information visit www.ASHAsexualhealth.org and www.nccc-online.org/index.html. HPV and cervical cancer: What you need to know. What is HPV? HPV is human papillomavirus. HPV is a common virus – more than half of sexIn Florida, Arbor Day is the third Friday in January.

ually active men and women are infected with HPV at some time. Six million new infections occur yearly in the United States, and about 20 million people – men and women – are thought to have an active HPV infection at any given time. Some types of HPV may cause symptoms such as genital warts. Other types cause cervical lesions which, over a period of time, can develop into cancer if undetected. However, most people have no symptoms of HPV infection, which means they have no idea they have HPV. In most cases, HPV is harmless and the body clears most HPV infections naturally. The public needs more education about HPV. One study by the National Institutes of Health found only 40 percent of women ages 18-75 had ever heard of HPV. HPV and cervical cancer: Most women with an HPV infection will not develop cervical cancer, but it’s very important to have regular screening tests, including Pap and HPV tests as recommended. According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 12,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer this year and about 4,000 of these women will die. Cervical cancer is preventable if precancerous cell changes are detected and treated early, before cervical cancer develops. Cervical cancer is a slowgrowing condition that usually takes years to progress. This is why getting screened on a regular basis is important; screening can usually catch any potential problems before they progress. HPV vaccines: HPV vaccines can help prevent infection from both HPV types that can lead to cervical cancer and types that cause

From The Arbor Day Foundation

Nebraska pioneer’s love of nature led to national

Arbor Day

The idea for Arbor Day originally came from Nebraska. A visit to Nebraska today wouldn’t disclose that the state was once a treeless plain. Yet it was the lack of trees there that led to the founding of Arbor Day in the 1800s. Among pioneers moving into the Nebraska Territory in 1854 was J. Sterling Morton from Detroit. He and his wife were lovers of nature, and the home they established in Nebraska was quickly planted with trees, shrubs and flowers.

Morton was a journalist and soon became editor of Nebraska’s first newspaper. Given that forum, he spread agricultural information and his enthusiasm for trees to an equally enthusiastic audience. On Jan. 4, 1872, Morton first proposed a tree-planting holiday to be called “Arbor Day” at a meeting of the state board of agriculture. The date was set for April 10, 1872. Prizes were offered to counties and individuals for planting properly the largest number of trees on that day. It was estimated that more than one million trees were planted in Nebraska on

genital warts. HPV vaccines are recommended for girls ages 11-12. Catch up vaccination is recommended for girls and young women ages 13-26 who have not been previously vaccinated. Males are also at risk, so boys and young men ages 9-26 can also be vaccinated against HPV. Gardasil is a vaccine for both females and males. Cervarix is a vaccine just for females. Tested in thousands of people in many countries, both vaccines appear to be safe and well tolerated; the most common side effect has been soreness at the injection site. HPV vaccines will not eliminate all HPV or cervical cancer. The vaccines prevent the HPV types that cause 70 per-

cent of cervical cancer cases. But there are other types of HPV (not covered in the vaccine) that could cause disease. HPV vaccines will not eliminate the need for cervical cancer screening, including Pap testing. Key points: • HPV is spread through skin-to-skin contact, not through the exchange of bodily fluid. HPV can infect anyone who has ever had a sexual encounter. • HPV can be contracted from one partner, remain dormant, and then later be unknowingly transmitted to another sexual partner, including a spouse. • Latex condoms can reduce but not totally eliminate the risk of HPV transmission.

the first Arbor Day. Arbor Day was officially proclaimed by the young state’s Gov. Robert W. Furnas on March 12, 1874, and the day itself was observed April 10, 1874. In 1885, Arbor Day was named a legal holiday in Nebraska and April 22, Morton’s birthday, was selected as the date for its permanent observance. During the 1870s, other states passed legislation to observe Arbor Day, and the tradition began in schools nationwide in 1882. For more information, go to www.arborday. org.
