Areas evaluated include results of Inspector General and safety visits, how well the staff manages training and student throughput, and correct handling of specialty items such as ordnance, radiation and high-risk training. TEA Board Coordinator Dorothy Berry noted that winning in the TEA categories is no easy task. “Providing a ready relevant maritime force for the fleet is the mission of NETC, and the TEA competition shows the incredibly hard work done by the staff at each center fulfilling that mission,” said Berry. NETC training activities and those that conduct NETC training courses are eligible for TEA awards. The competition is composed of three award categories: the Learning Center Training Excellence “White T,” the Training Support Center Training Support Excellence “White TS,” and Functional Excellence Awards.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance office open at NASP By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

The IRS is waiting for your tax return, and the NAS Pensacola Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) office is ready to help you get it done. The NASP VITA office is

open and will be offering free tax help until the end of tax season. Taxpayers have a few extra days to file their taxes this year because the Emancipation Day holiday in Washington, D.C., falls on April 15, so this year’s deadline is April 18 to file 2015 returns and pay any tax due.

The NASP office has a bigger staff of volunteers this year, and there are two laptops available, which should make filing quick and easy, said Lt. Christopher J. Ironroad, an assistant staff judge advocate with the Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps who

is the contact person for the NASP VITA office. The service is available to active-duty and retirees and dependents, as well as reservists (activated 30 days plus and pre-demobilization) and entitled former spouses are also welcome.

While the NASP VITA office predominantly caters to walk-in customers, you may also schedule an appointment during normal hours of operation. In addition, Ironroad said the office is looking at expanding its hours

NAS Pensacola drivers are warned: check your speed. Three radar-operating warning signs have been set up onboard NASP to let drivers know when they exceed the posted speed limits. The signs – one near the NASP main gate and two along Radford Boulevard – are there for a good reason. “To reduce speeding and to save lives,” said Lt.j.g. Harold Saintcloud, base security officer. “Speeders will slow down up to 80 percent of the time when alerted by a radar sign. Typical speed reductions are 10-20 percent. And radar signs are particularly effective at getting ‘super speeders’ to slow down and avoid accidents.” The message is important and being reinforced due to the large number of base visitors and the transient population of people being trained.

U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, are slated to perform a flyover of the 2016 Super Bowl at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., Feb. 7. The Blue Angels will open the football game with their signature six-jet delta formation, immediately following the national anthem. The football game is set to pit the National Football League’s Denver Broncos against the Carolina Panthers. More than 70,000 spectators are expected to attend the football game, which draws more than 114 million viewers worldwide. The Blue Angels are currently training in California for the 2016 air show season and are scheduled to fly 65 demonstrations at 33 locations throughout North America in 2016, which is the Blue Angels 70th anniversary year.

(NIOC) Georgia. “It is important to always look for ways to promote physical fitness,” said Lt. Scott Aaron, the coordinator for the local Ninja Warrior Challenge. “Having Lt. j.g. McKinney in our ACM class presented a fantastic opportunity to engage Sailors. Dustin is a great motivator.” For the past two years, McKinney has solidified himself as one of the most consistent contestants on “American Ninja Warrior,” especially after winning the military region by becoming the only finisher. The local competition at NAS Pensacola Corry Station started out with 20 participants, and the top 12 combined into six teams to meet the challenge. McKinney designed the course to allow Sailors with varying fitness levels to participate. “Although we didn't use the same type of obstacles you may see on ‘American Ninja Warrior,’ we used the same core competencies of physical skills that are required to be successful on the show: balance, speed, agility and grip strength,” said McKinney. The group started with a dynamic warm up and calisthenics. The qualifying round consisted of five countdown rounds of push-ups, sit-ups, fullbody exercises and sprints. For the competition itself, the teams navigated an obstacle course of a stack line, wheelbarrows, island hopping, bear crawls, somersaults and a 20-foot bar traverse. “When Sailors operate forward, we need to have a strong sense of teamwork and unity, so I also incorporated teamwork

into the course,” said McKinney. “The Sailors chose a partner to run the course with, which helped build the trust and reliance we need to have with one another as we serve.” ITSA John Parsons and CTNSA Marc Johnson were the only team to beat McKinney on the course, when he made an attempt to complete the course without a partner, losing by nine seconds. “It was a great honor to win the Ninja Warrior Challenge and to get to meet the Ninja Warrior, Lt. j.g. McKinney,” said Parsons, an information systems technician “A” school student. “The Sailors who beat my time worked together and pushed themselves, and that is what being in the Navy is all about,” said McKinney. McKinney’s interest in the TV competition developed when he was an cryptologic technician (collection) and continued when he was selected for Officer Candidate School. “To me, physical fitness is the means to a happy, healthy, and satisfying life,” said McKinney. “Physical fitness has taught me the importance of goal setting, which has led to success in many other areas of life.” McKinney said he will soon be featured on the new TV spinoff of “Team Ninja Warrior,” where he will compete alongside Geoff Britten and his wife, Jess Britten. McKinney will also appear on an “All-Star Ninja Warrior” episode later this year. Although McKinney will be deployed during season eight of “American Ninja Warrior,” he plans on training and continuing to pursue his dream of winning.

The unknown: A military spouse’s greatest worry By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

“W

hat’s next? When will we move? Where will we go?” Like any military spouse, these are the questions that swirl in my mind now that my Navy husband, Francis, is in the last year of his current tour of duty. You know the type. The ones who incessantly scribble lists titled “Stuff I Gotta Do,” “Movies I Wanna Watch on Netflix,” “Household Projects I Never Quite Finished,” “Weight Loss Goals I Have Been Working on Since Ninth Grade,” “Meals That the Kids Won’t Hate,” and “Embarrassing Questions to Ask the Doctor.” Yep, that’s me. Needless to say, military moves really stress me out. In our 22 years of military marriage, I have often told my husband, “I don’t care if we live in a cardboard box under an overpass, just tell me where we are going, and I will plan where to hang the pictures.” All joking aside, there are legitimate worries that military families face every time they move, such as: Will my

spouse have to move without us so the children can stay in school? And if we decide to “geobach,” how will that affect our marriage? Will I be able to find work in my field? If the children change schools, will they struggle with a new curriculum, or will they have to sit through material they have already learned? Will they fit in? Will we be happy? We have several more months to go before our rotation date, but guaranteed, I will work myself into a tizzy over all the unknowns about Francis’ next job and our next home. To make matters worse, we are waiting for decisions on our daughter Anna’s college applications. At 17, she is taking it all in stride, while I am a veritable basket case. Where will she

go? Can we afford it? Will she need a shower caddy? What if she gets a roommate with green hair and bolt piercings in her face who boils ramen in her hot pot and sets the dorm on fire, ruining Anna’s entire freshman experience? Our oldest, Hayden, has only two-and-a-half years of college left. If we don’t go bankrupt first, he will graduate with a degree in computer science and get snapped up by some tech firm, and then where will he be? Halfway around the world in California? Will he learn how to iron shirts all by himself? Who is going to pair up all his mismatched socks? Will I have to fly all the way out there to disinfect his bathroom and make sure he is eating enough fruit? And what about our

I would much rather be the type of person who drifts contentedly through life like a twig on the shoulders of a mighty stream, embracing spontaneity while belting out Doris Day’s best “Que Sera, Sera.” I have often wondered if, at the heart of all my obsessive planning, are deep seeded “control issues” that if left unchecked, could spiral into a psychotic episode that would leave me wandering in front of the courthouse in a dusty wool coat and a tin foil turban, muttering something about campaign finance reform, and pushing a shopping cart full of empty tuna cans. There I go again. My rational side knows that all the worries in the world will not change two simple truths of military life: We will never know what will happen until it happens. Just like Doris sings, “Whatever Will Be, Will Be.”

BBD is here: What you need to know From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

M

ILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – The Navy announced Jan. 28 that Billet Based Distribution (BBD) will be implemented February 2016 in NavAdmin 016/16. BBD will enable the Navy to more efficiently assign personnel in support of warfighting readiness and match Sailors to specific billets based on rate, rating and Navy Enlisted Classification The new functionality is being added into the Career Management System – Interactive Detailing (CMS-ID), but Sailors will continue to apply for jobs the same way they do now. “Although the process behind the scenes will change, Sailors will not have to learn a new system to negotiate for PCS orders. To fleet Sailors, the upgrades will be transparent and seamless,” said Rear Adm. Ken Whitesell, assistant commander for Career Progression, Navy Personnel Command (NPC). “Ultimately, BBD will help drive improved personnel readiness across the fleet.” BBD will allow command personnel managers, detailers

and placement coordinators to more reliably assess a vacant position’s impact on readiness. Specific goals include: • The alignment of every enlisted Sailor, who is available for assignment, to a Navy position. • A system that has the tools and accurate demand signal needed to maximize rating and Critical Navy Enlistment Classification (NEC) “Fit.” • The capability to better use available Permanent Change of Station (PCS) and Temporary Duty under Instruction (TDI) funds. • The capability to forecast future fleet vacancies which will lead to better Sailor and fleet customer service.

Capt. Bruce Deshotel, head enlisted community manager, speaks to Sailors during a Navy Personnel Command’s Fleet Engagement Team (FET) visit. The FET spoke about career management system-interactive detailing, limited directed detailing, chief petty officer early return to sea, voluntary sea duty program, billet-based distribution and other topics related to a Sailor’s career. Photo by MC3 Seth Coulter

• The foundation for an improved assignment process. The first BBD enlisted requisition will run today (Feb. 5). Additionally, the February cycle of CMS-ID, which will use the new BBD capability, will be open for fleet applications Feb. 12. To ensure they are placed in the right job, Sailors should review their records often for accuracy – especially for the

NECs they hold to ensure accurate information for the detailing process. The implementation of BBD requires all fleet users to resubmit paperwork for access. Enlisted Sailors who are negotiating for orders don’t need to take any action. Leaders, personnel managers and others who require access for any other reason can send their requests now. Guidance on fill-

ing out and submitting paperwork can be found on the NPC BBD web page at www.public.navy.mil/ bupers-npc/ enlisted/ billet_ based/Pages/ default2.aspx. For more information, visit the NPC BBD web page or contact your command’s placement coordinator. For more news from Navy Personnel Command, visit www.navy.mil/local/npc/.

Navy christens littoral combat ship Sioux City From United States Central Command

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy christened its newest Freedom variant littoral combat ship, USS Sioux City (LCS 11), during a ceremony Jan. 30 in Marinette, Wis. Sioux City, designated LCS 11, honors the city of Sioux City, Iowa. Adm. Michelle Howard, vice chief of Naval Operations, served as principal speaker. Mary Winnefeld, wife of retired Adm. James “Sandy” Winnefeld, served as the ship’s sponsor. The ceremony was highlighted by Winnefeld breaking a bottle of sparkling wine across the bow to formally christen the ship, which is a time-honored Navy tradition. “The christening and launch of LCS 11, the future USS Sioux City, marks an important step toward this great warship’s entry into the fleet,” said Ray Mabus, secretary of the Navy. “The hard work and dedication of our nation’s shipbuilders have ensured this ship will serve as a representation of both Sioux City and our Navy and Marine Corps’ ability to deliver presence for decades to come.” The future USS Sioux City is the first naval vessel to be named in honor of

Sioux City, Iowa. The fourth-largest city in the state, Sioux City was founded in 1854 at the navigational head of the Missouri River and takes its name from one of a group of North American Indian tribes that make up the Great Sioux Nation. Sioux City has a strong historical connection to all branches of the military, in-

cluding the Navy. The U.S. Naval Reserve Construction Battalion (NCB) 2 deployed from Sioux City Naval Reserve Training Center to Vietnam in 1967, and in February 1968 the 185th Tactical Fighter Squadron of the Iowa Air National Guard was deployed from their base in Sioux City in direct response to the seizure of the USS Pueblo

by North Korea. Sioux City is also the hometown of the 27th Chief of Naval Operations, retired Adm. Vern Clark. The LCS class consists of two variants, the Freedom variant and the Independence variant, designed and built by two industry teams. The Freedom variant team is led by Lockheed Martin (for the odd-numbered hulls, e.g. LCS 1). The Independence variant team is led by Austal USA (for LCS 6 and the subsequent even-numbered hulls) and was originally led by General Dynamics, Bath Iron Works (LCS 2 and LCS 4). The LCS seaframes will be outfitted with reconfigurable payloads, called mission modules (made up of mission systems and support equipment), which can be changed quickly. These modules combine with crew detachments and aviation assets to become complete mission packages, which will deploy manned and unmanned vehicles and sensors in support of mine countermeasures, anti-submarine warfare, or surface warfare missions.

Navy COOL mobile app now available From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

S

ailors can now access several tools and resources found on Navy Credentialing Opportunities Online (COOL) via their mobile devices with a new Navy COOL application that launched Jan. 28. The Navy COOL app, available for both Android and iOS/Apple devices, is designed to help Sailors, both enlisted and officer, to find information on credentialing, career development and civilian crosswalks related to their military occupation. “This new app provides an expanded capability for Sailors to help them translate the skills they’ve learned on the job into civilian credentials, career growth opportunities and related civilian occupations,� said Keith Boring, Navy COOL program manager. “The app is a great complement to our newly redesigned website and provides extra features that I think Sailors will find handy to have at their fingertips.� Besides credentialing information, the app provides enlisted members with Learning and Development Roadmaps (LaDRs), which are rating-specific online guides that explain in detail what Sailors need to succeed at specific points in their career. Additional app features include snapshots of related civilian oc-

cupations and United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP) trades, along with generic joint service transcripts associated with each enlisted Navy rating. Rating Information Cards also provide summary information such as school locations, training time, qualifications and working environment. These and the other features within the app are particularly useful for recruiters and career counselors, especially when they are on the go, as they advise potential recruits and Sailors of professional options available to them. “The Navy COOL app is another valuable tool that will provide training and resources to our Sailors to support their Navy career and beyond,� said Rear Adm. Mike White, commander Naval Education and Training Command. “We want to ensure, especially with today’s younger generation that we're giving them the means and tools to access information wherever they are, when they want it and in ways they find most convenient

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 third 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.

Time at Whiting set foundation for stellar career By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field PAO

hen the days get tough, the work is hard, and a person is tired from studying, it helps to have some kind of external motivator to remember the end goal of all the effort. For Col. Randy Bresnik, that motivation came from a poster given to him from an uncle that said, “the sky is no limit.” Seeing that slogan every day has pushed him to a career that has defied the boundaries of Earth and led him beyond the skies. Now working in Star City, Russia, Bresnik is training to become one of the select few individuals to command the International Space Station (ISS). He is slated for a Nov. 8, 2017, return to space in a Russian ship, and he will command the ISS until May 2018. Considering that Bresnik will need to know Russian as well as a Russian cosmonaut does, he emphasized that he is studying as hard as he ever has to prepare for the flight. As a former Marine aviator and test pilot, the first graduate of the Citadel to ever fly in space learned many of the basic lessons he continues to use from his early days in flight training at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF). “Biggest thing at flight training is to focus on time management. Attention to detail, the way you prepare and the way you debrief. Brief – execution – debrief. Skills learned in primary are still skills used in space flight,” Bresnik said. Following an impressive 11year career with NASA and 12 successful years as a military pilot before that, Bresnik should be justifiably confident in his capabilities. However, he stressed that it wasn’t always that way. The start of flight training at the installation was fairly nervewracking for the 24-year-old officer. “We all finished college and we chose to do it,” he stated, “but you come to NAS Whiting Field and you don’t know if you have the skills. You question whether

it is something you will be compatible with.” Academically, the questions were answered quickly. During ground school, Bresnik saw an earlier student score 299 out of 300 on the series of six tests prospective aviators take. He then wondered why someone can’t do 300 out of 300. He assumed the challenge, pushed himself, and achieved that perfect score. He then was assigned to primary flight training in the T-34 Turbo Mentor with Training Squadron Three at NASWF. Although at the installation for less than a year, he called the experience “exciting” and still recalls the unique setup of the two airfields less than one mile apart, and the incredible pace of flight operations. “Seeing how busy both fields constantly were, it was amazing how Whiting Field functioned so efficiently. It is a testament to how well the system works and how well we train,” he said. “You hear about the exploits of those who went before you and you want to do the same.” With the foundations of flight training in place, Bresnik received orders to Texas to earn his Wings of Gold as a jet pilot. He then transferred to Cecil Field in Florida and completed training in the F/A-18 Hornet with VFA106. Bresnik completed three overseas deployments while bouncing between Hawaii and California with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA)-212. While with the “Lancers,” he completed Marine Corps Weapons and Tactics Instructors Course as well as Naval Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN), before being accepted into the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School in 1999. After completing the year-

long program, he flew every model of the F/A-18 through all manner of flight tests as an F/A18 Test Pilot Project Officer, and returned to the Test Pilot School in 2002 as an instructor. His final military duty station was with VMFA-225, where he flew combat missions in support of Operation Southern Watch and Operation Iraqi Freedom before being one of only two candidates selected by NASA to join Astronaut Group 19. Bresnik spent the next several years completing the scientific and technical briefings, instruction in space shuttle and ISS systems, physiological training and survival training required of all astronauts. He was selected to take the 31st shuttle flight to ISS which launched Nov. 16, 2009. The mission was a supply run to deliver approximately 30,000 pounds of replacement parts and two express logistics carriers. During the mission, Bresnik carried a scarf worn by aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart. The scarf had been on display at the Ninety-Nines Museum of Women Pilots in Oklahoma City. His grandfather, Albert Louis Bresnik, was the personal photographer for Earhart for the five years preceding her disappearance in 1937. Upon its return to Earth, the scarf was placed in a new display at the museum dedicated to the Bresnik’s grandfather’s photographs.

However, the highlight for Bresnik was his first extravehicular activity (EVA) or spacewalk, Nov. 21, 2009. He compared his excitement preceding the event to his first time to solo, first night flight in Texas, first F-18 flight, first night trap, and his first time in combat – all rolled into one. “You can not be the same after your first view from space, looking at the planet,” Bresnik emphasized. “I have been very fortunate to see that beautiful blue marble called planet Earth.” The very next day though, Bresnik received some even better news. His wife, Rebecca, gave birth to his daughter, Abigail Mae, the night before making him the second astronaut to become a father while in orbit. He received word via a phone patch early on Nov. 22, shortly before preparations began for his next EVA, Nov. 23, 2009. “You have to be focused, like other dangerous jobs there are consequences (to wrong actions),” Bresnik said about his emotions following the birth of Abigail. “The very next day I had to compartmentalize my emotions and go out again. Exactly the stuff I learned in flight school and I was still using it 25 years later.” In the five years since his first space flight, Bresnik has been preparing for his next opportunity. He participated in the European Space Agency’s Cooperative Adventure for Valu-

ing and Exercising human behavior and performance Skills (CAVES) in Sardinia, Italy. This was the first event of its type with the participants living deep beneath the surface for nearly a week. The international team, with members from Japan, Russia, Europe and the U.S., dealt with the dark, confined spaces while working a schedule similar to what is used during spaceflights. The activities promoted scientific knowledge while enhancing teamwork in a harsh, unfamiliar setting. In many ways it simulated the same type of difficulties as his week-long command in 2014 of NASA’s Extreme Environment Mission Operation (NEEMO) project located under 62 feet of water six miles off the Florida Keys. “All of this is done so that the first time you go into space, it is just another operation. It is good for team building and individual development. It helps ensure that physical and mental difficulties don’t become overwhelming,” he said. As he prepares for his next opportunity in space in 2017, Bresnik has no clue what comes after. He does know that the 25-yearold Bresnik from 1992 had no idea what was in store. “I left Whiting Field just hoping to be a pilot and the opportunities kept coming,” he said. “I just kept asking myself, ‘What can I do next?’ ”

CNATT hosts American Council on Education visit Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training PAO

M

embers of a nationally recognized accreditation organization visited the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Jan. 2022 as the first step in determining if several of the organization’s courses would be eligible for college credit recommendations. The American Council on Education (ACE) assessed CNATT courses over a two-day span, an intense look at required training for beginning and intermediate aviation maintenance students which CNATT Director of Training Terry Williams said could have an impact on their future careers. “Having organizations eval-

uate the coursework offered through CNATT’s learning activities around the world is going to greatly assist service members going through our courses as well as give them a head start toward a post-Navy trade or higher education,” he said. “During the entire inspection and during the out brief with CNATT Commanding Officer (Capt. Terry Hammond)

the ACE team repeatedly lauded our programs, and the pride staff members take in them.” Since 1945, the American Council on Education (ACE) has provided a collaborative link between the U.S. Department of Defense and higher education through the review of military training and experiences for the award of equivalent college credits for members of the armed forces. The evaluation process is founded on high quality standards of practice, including a rigorous review and selection of subject-matter experts and academic faculty, a site visit to analyze the content and an evaluation consensus in determining the learning outcomes and appropriate academic credit recommendations. During the visit, 17 CNATT courses were evaluated. CNATT N7 Training Specialist

Robert Folmar said each of these courses is meticulously maintained at the oversight level, providing an intensive, best-practices approach to instruction. The process for accreditation is lengthy, requiring a series of steps leading up to the accreditation recommendation. Folmar said final results of the ACE team visit could be expected in 30 days, and added that the impact of accredited courses offered through CNATT facilities stems across the Navy and Marine Corps, and can have a significant impact on a Sailor’s and Marine’s career. “Sailors and Marines taking these courses are impacting our fleet in areas too numerous to count,” he said. “What they’re accomplishing as graduates, is providing dividends in all aspects of what we do on a daily basis: support the warfighter.

Scientist who landed on moon to lecture at IHMC From the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition

A lecture by Sen. Harrison “Jack” Schmitt, a former astronaut, is scheduled for 6 p.m. Feb. 18 at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC), 40 South Alcaniz St. The title of the lecture is “19031969 Wrights to Armstrong.” The first 70 years of the 20th century saw a remarkable explosion in techSchmitt nology related to flight above the surface of the Earth. In 1903 at Kitty Hawk, N.C., the Wright Brothers demonstrated powered air-

craft flight for the first time. In 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped from the lunar module Eagle onto the lunar surface. Between these two unique historic events, air travel became routine and space travel had left the realm of science fiction and entered reality. The scientific, economic, defense and life benefits arising from the accomplishment of these two events changed the course of the future for America and all nations. Schmitt was born in Santa Rita, N.M., and grew up in nearby Silver City. He received a bachelor’s of science degree from Caltech and a doctorate in geology from Harvard. He worked in Norway as a Fulbright Scholar and also as a National Science Foundation post-doctorate fellow. Selected by NASA as a scientist-astronaut

in 1965, he earned Air Force T-38 jet pilot wings in 1966 and Navy H-13 helicopter wings in 1967. Schmitt flew in space as Apollo 17’s lunar module pilot, landing in the moon’s Valley of Taurus-Littrow, Dec. 11, 1972. He is the only scientist and the last of 12 men to step on the moon. Elected to the U.S. Senate from New Mexico in 1976, Schmitt worked on legislation and New Mexico affairs related to technology, immigration, healthcare, commerce, national security and intelligence. A part of his consulting business in aerospace and earth science, he served on the President Reagan’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, the Army Science Board and the President H.W. Bush’s Ethics Commission and chaired the NASA Advisory Council from 2005 to 2008.

In 1983, Schmitt became director of Orbital Sciences Corporation, now Orbital ATK. Beginning in 1996, he taught “Resources from Space” at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is an associate fellow in the Department of Engineering. He has authored “Return to the Moon; Exploration, Enterprise and Energy in the Human Exploration of Space” and numerous scientific papers. He lives in the intermountain west with his wife of more than 30 years, Teresa Fitzgibbon, and a number of fourlegged canine family members. Schmitt is also a visiting senior research scientist at the IHMC. Prior to his lecture there will be a reception starting at 5:30 p.m. Seating is limited.

Its repertoire ranges from Renaissance through the present day, from symphonic band literature to Broadway musicals, and from marches to popular

hits. Featured soloists will be A1C Alicia Cancel and Staff Sgt. Kathleen Keese. Tickets are available at www.bandofthewest. af.mil or call MWR at 452-3806. Every Tuesday in February, visitors will get to take a peek behind the scenes at museum artifacts rarely seen by the public while enjoying a Chickfil-A breakfast and Starbucks coffee. The Breakfast and Behind-the-Scenes event will be held in the Blue Angels atrium and doors will open at 8 a.m. Cost for breakfast is $5 per person. The concert and breakfast tours are open to the public, but due to a recent policy change at Naval Air Station Pensacola, visitors to the museum who do not possess a Department of Defense (DoD) identification card or are not escorted by a DoD ID car holder, will be required to enter the base via the west gate located off Blue Angel Parkway.

Bubble soccer winners announced ...

GOSPORT SAPR

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.
