A new Navy Foreign Language Testing Office (NFLTO) at NAS Pensacola opened its doors to provide testing for area Sailors Feb. 8. With tests administered every Wednesday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Bldg. 634, Sailors can make appointments for testing and language test counseling by emailing languagetesting@navy.mil. “We’re excited about being able to provide this service and support to our Sailors,” said Christopher Wise, director of the Navy’s Center for Language, Regional Expertise, and Culture (CLREC). “Measuring foreign language proficiency through testing is necessary for Navy leaders to understand the language capabilities available. For Sailors, a language proficiency score can affect bonus pays, special assignments and even college credit.” See Language on page 2

Center was activated. MA2 Mauricio Granato played the naval security officer in pursuit of the gate runner and a “victim.” He was “fatally shot” by the gunman as part of the exercise. Other security personnel who responded included NASP Police Officer Daniel Dugger, MA2 Genevieve Wanamaker and MA2 Christopher Browning. Members of Gulf Coast Fire and Emergency Services responded to provide medical triage and care and exercise their interoperability with their law enforcement counterparts. Within minutes, automated base-wide emergency alerts to implement activeshooter procedures were issued to get the word out to more than 20,000 personnel onboard the installation complex (NAS Pensacola, NASP Corry Station, NASP Saufley Field and Blue Angel Recreation Park). Hathaway was pleased with the quick response. “Security folks are always ready to go,” he said. “When we get into an exercise, they just get a little more pumped up and know that they are going to be able to execute the training that they have been doing all along.” Participants were briefed on the basic plan, but there were a few curveballs thrown in so that observers could see the actual reactions of police officers, said NASP Police Capt. Jeff Glassey, the installation security training officer. “It worked out great,” Glassey said. “We saw that officers did what they were supposed to do.” Security and readiness training continues throughout the year, Hathaway said, but there was a concentration on the active-shooter exercise because of the frequency of incidents that have occurred over the last few years. The 11-day exercise also included gate events and increased force protection. Glassey said it is essential to stay prepared. “Just because this is NAS Pensacola, does not mean that things don’t happen on this base,” he said. “We have security postures, problems and issues just like they have out in town, so we are preparing for that event.” After the exercise, officials will review the lessons learned and apply any necessary changes to ensure that NASP has a strong defense against any potential threat. Hathaway encouraged all base personnel to always report any suspicious activity. “If you see something, say something,” he said. “And that qualifies here on the base and out in town. Active shooters can happen anywhere, so you should always be prepared to run, hide or fight, and that is the best thing we can tell you to do.”

The NFLTO offers the Defense Language Aptitude Battery (DLAB) test and the Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT). The DLAB measures the aptitude for foreign language learning by the typical native English speaker. The DLAB may be administered to personnel who are interested in: • Applying for foreign language training. • Being screened for assignment to foreign language training. • Cryptologic technician interpretive (CTI) rating. • Olmstead Scholarship Foundation Program. • Foreign area officer (FAO). • Personnel Exchange Program (PEP).

Vol. 81, No. 6

The DLPT is the only Department of Defense test that measures a service member’s proficiency in a foreign language in listening and/or reading. Sailors who need to establish foreign language proficiency; recertify for Foreign Language Proficiency Bonus (FLPB); or establish and maintain a language Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) are authorized to test. The Pensacola NFLTO is supported by staff from CLREC, located at NAS Pensacola Corry Station and a part of the Center for Information Warfare Training. CLREC delivers foreign language instruction and training on foreign cultures to prepare Navy personnel for global engagements.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.


The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

“There were literally hundreds of people working and planning to get the base back in business, and it was awe inspiring to see the dedication of so many people working so hard to get the base back to its mission.” Sending engineers around the world is not new to NavFac. “We always have a trained CERT ready to go at a moment’s notice,” said NavFac SE Production Officer and Disaster Preparedness Officer Lt. Cmdr. Craig Peck. Peck explained that the CERT has Disaster Assessment Teams (DATs) which consist of structural, electrical, and mechanical engineers, architects, roofing specialists, community planners and construction contract specialists that deploy to begin rapid damage assessments. The six CERT members returned to their respective bases Jan. 29 and are continuing to finalize their reports.

Simon addressed the CNATT service members and civilian employees at the onset of the celebration, stressing the importance the headquarters staff has played in the professional development of thousands of students. “I always say that CNATT has one of the best and most important jobs in naval aviation,” said Simon. “We provide the trained Sailors and Marines that ultimately support the warfighter at the pointy end of the spear. The contributions the CNATT team makes to the Naval Aviation Enterprise are an important part of the present and future of naval aviation. I am extremely proud to have been given the privilege of leading this outstanding organization.” Simon said the command's headquarters element is dedicated to the continued efforts toward training the future maintainers of naval aviation, a task he said CNATT embraces. “Our people are our most valuable asset, and I know that each and every member of the CNATT team – both here and across our 27 sites – is doing their utmost to provide the best possible training to the men and women who pledge to support and defend our great nation,” Simon said.

I loved being one of those ‘base housing people’ By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I was emerging from the base gym’s steam room, sweating and feeling a bit woozy, when I heard her. “We don’t do base housing,” a young female officer putting on her blueberry fatigues told a friend in the women’s locker room. She mentioned that she received orders to her next duty at Naval Station Mayport, and that she and her husband were looking for a rental in St. Johns, Fla., where the houses are nicer. “We’re searching early, so we don’t get stuck living on base,” she explained. “We’re not base housing people.” I was steamed. Pun intended. Little did she know, that before my husband retired I had lived up the street from the base gym – although one would never suspect it based on how few appearances I made there – in a small cluster of old duplex houses on Naval Station Newport, R.I. Before that, we had lived in the very Mayport base housing the young officer was trying to avoid. Before that, we had lived in an

apartment on Patch Barracks in Stuttgart, Germany. Those years, plus a two-year stint in old Army base housing on Fort Ord in Monterey, Calif., in the 1990s, meant that we had spent almost half of our 23-year marriage living in base quarters. Apparently, we are those “base housing people.” When I heard the young officer say she had orders to Naval Station Mayport, my instinct was to pipe up, “We were stationed there!” as many military folks do, and then I would tell her all about the beach, the base gym, the good fried chicken at the mess hall, and the local shrimp place. But, sensing the negative connotation she attached to “base housing people” I stayed silent. However, I couldn’t help but pity her, because she did not know what she was missing. In Monterey, we would walk Ardennes Circle, the huge curved road winding through our base housing community, pushing our first baby in a stroller and chatting with neighbors along the way. On many an evening, a stop at a neighbor’s house to

Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. chat turned into an impromptu party, with babies sleeping in portable cribs and car seats while we laughed into the wee hours. We still have those friends today. When we moved to Joint

Analysis Center (JAC) Molesworth in rural England, we wanted to “experience English culture.” We lived in an old village house with creaky floorboards and a World War I bomb shelter in the basement. It was a terrific immersion into rural English village life, but we spent many weekends at our friends’ base houses, seeking camaraderie. Years later, we were deciding whether to live in a bland communist-era stairwell apartment on Patch Barracks in Stuttgart, or brave the risky but rewarding German rental market. In the end, we chose base housing, because we felt it would ease the transition for our three children. Surely, if we had lived off base we would have spoken more German and learned more about the local culture, but we found that on base communities have a culture all their own. Safe and secure within the fences of Patch Barracks, children ran everywhere and spouses chatted on shared patios. We went off base and traveled often, seeking the enrichment of European culture. But we were also en-

riched by the close-knit experience of on-base life, with it’s unparalleled camaraderie and Mayberry-esque smalltown feel. Again, we made friends for life. At Mayport, we knew we wanted to live in the base housing community. Not only was the housing in sight of the beautiful sandy Atlantic coastline, it was the kind of tight-knit military community we had learned to value. By the end of our two years there, we had enjoyed countless nights around fire pits and afternoons at the beach with neighbors, and our children always had someone to hang out with who lived on the same the street. As always, we made friends for life. As I was walking back to my base house from the gym, my cheeks still flush and damp from the steam room, I remember hoping that the young officer would, someday, experience base housing culture. Because, overcoming the challenges of military life takes the sweat of one’s brow, but finding life-long friendships on base is actually no sweat at all.

Navy celebrates 2017 African-American/Black History Month By Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs


ASHINGTON (NNS) – Throughout the month of February, the Navy joins the nation in celebrating the history and culture of African American and Black Sailors during African-American/Black History Month. AlNav 006/17 encourages participation in all the heritage celebrations and special observances throughout the year. Sailors and Navy commands are encouraged to use this month to celebrate and recognize the exceptional and distinctive contributions and the unique histories and cultures that African American/ Black shipmates bring to the Navy. This month’s observance has its origins in 1915 when historian and author Dr. Carter G. Woodson founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History. Woodson and the association initiated the first Negro History Week in February 1926. Every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as National African-American/ Black History Month since 1976. “The greatest strength in our Navy comes not from weapons but from the diversity of our

people,” said Rear Adm. Stephen Evans, commander, Naval Service Training Command. “Every day, Sailors of diverse race, gender, religion, ideas and background work together to accomplish the extraordinary.” African American and black Sailors and civilians are an integral part of the One Navy Team. Nineteen percent of Navy’s enlisted force identifies as African-American or black, to include 17 percent of all senior and master chiefs, while 7 percent of the officer force and 4 percent of all admirals identify as the same. In the Navy’s civilian workforce, 15 percent are African American or black and 20 are senior executive service members. A diverse workforce positions the Navy to operate successfully around the globe by bringing together Sailors and civilians with different ideas,

experiences, perspectives, capabilities and skill sets. Integrating Sailors and civilians from diverse backgrounds into the force allows the Navy to recruit and retain the nation’s top talent from a wider pool of skilled personnel. “The call to serve our great nation comes with a responsibility to push yourself to be at your best, to be ready,” Evans said. “Training and education are vital to readiness, which is why we strive to attract talent from diverse pools of future leaders and provide them the

highest quality naval accession training.” The Navy partners with organizations including the NaNaval Officers tional Association, the National Society of Black Engineers, and historically black colleges and universities in support of African American service members and civilians. The Navy supports Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs encouraging young minority students to pursue careers in science and industry.

A complete educational presentation, including a downloadable educational poster on African-American/ Black History Month, can be requested from the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI) by email at deomipa@us.af.mil.

NASWF participates in Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield exercises Story, photo by Ens. Brittany Stephens NASWF Public Affairs


AS Whiting Field (NASWF) participated in training exercises Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield (SC-CS) this past week with an active shooter drill on base. Since 2007, naval bases across the continental United States conduct SCCS as a means to enhance anti-terrorism and force protection measures. The exercise creates a learning environment for security personnel to test operations

plans in response to real world threats. Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command and Commander, Navy Installations Command coordinate SC-CS each year to ensure the Navy is prepared to tackle changing and dy-

namic threats. This year, NAS Whiting Field built a scenario with an active shooter at the Naval Branch Health Clinic. The simulated gunman made his way to the

clinic and “shot” four people inside using a red plastic firearm while gunshot noises were heard over a loudspeaker. He then took one of the base personnel hostage in an office.

Security effectively responded to the situation, neutralizing the gunman after the hostage escaped. Hostage negotiators and emergency medical services from Life Guard am-

bulance were brought on scene to treat simulated victims and coordinate with NAS Whiting Field security personnel. SC-CS continues through today, Feb. 10.

CNATT names Training Manager of the Quarter; See page B2 Spotlight


Presidents Day:

Washington’s, Lincoln’s legacy of leadership resounds through the ages ccording to the federal government, the holiday observed on the third Monday in February is officially Washington’s birthday (Feb. 20 in 2017). To most Americans, this holiday is commonly called “Presidents Day,” in honor of two presidents, Washington (born Feb. 22) and Lincoln (born Feb. 12).


George Washington On April 30, 1789, George Washington, standing on the balcony of Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York, took his oath of office as the first president of the United States. “As the first of every thing, in our situation will serve to establish a precedent,” he wrote James Madison. “It is devoutly wished on my part, that these precedents may be fixed on true principles.”

George Washington Born in 1732 into a Virginia planter family, he learned the morals, manners and body of knowledge requisite for an 18th century Virginia gentleman. He pursued two intertwined interests: military arts and Western expansion. At 16 he helped survey Shenandoah lands for Lord Fairfax. Commissioned a lieutenant colonel in 1754, he fought the first skirmishes of what grew into the French and Indian War. The next year, as an aide to Gen. Edward Braddock, he escaped injury although four bullets ripped his coat and two horses were shot from under him. From 1759 to the outbreak of the American Revolution, Wash-

ington managed his lands around Mount Vernon and served in the Virginia House of Burgesses. Married to a widow, Martha Dandridge Custis, he devoted himself to a busy and happy life. But like his fellow planters, Washington felt himself exploited by British merchants and hampered by British regulations. As the quarrel with the mother country grew acute, he moderately but firmly voiced his resistance to the restrictions. When the Second Continental Congress assembled in Philadelphia in May 1775, Washington, one of the Virginia delegates, was elected commander in chief of the Continental Army. On July 3, 1775, at Cambridge, Mass., he took command of his ill-trained troops and embarked upon a war that was to last six long years. He realized early that the best strategy was to harass the British. He reported to Congress, “We should on all occasions avoid a general action, or put anything to the risk, unless compelled by a necessity, into which we ought never to be drawn.” Ensuing battles saw him fall back slowly, then strike unexpectedly. Finally in 1781 with the aid of French allies – he forced the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. Washington longed to retire to his fields at Mount Vernon. But he soon realized that the nation under its Articles of Confederation was not functioning well, so he became a prime mover in the steps leading to the Constitutional Convention at Philadelphia in 1787. When the new Constitution was ratified, the Electoral College unanimously elected Washington president. He did not infringe upon the policy making powers that he felt the Constitution gave Congress. But the determination of foreign















Abraham Lincoln To his disappointment, two parties were developing by the end of his first term. Wearied of politics, feeling old, he retired at the end of his second. In his farewell address, he urged his countrymen to forswear excessive party spirit and geographical distinctions. In foreign affairs, he warned against longterm alliances. Washington enjoyed less than three years of retirement at Mount Vernon, before he died of a throat infection Dec. 14, 1799. For months the nation mourned him. Abraham Lincoln Lincoln warned the South in his inaugural address: “In your hands, my dissatisfied fellow countrymen, and not in mine, is the momentous

issue of civil war. The government will not assail you ... You have no oath registered in Heaven to destroy the government, while I shall have the most solemn one to preserve, protect and defend it.” Lincoln thought secession illegal, and was willing to use force to defend federal law and the Union. When Confederate batteries fired on Fort Sumter and forced its surrender, he called on the states for 75,000 volunteers. Four more slave states joined the Confederacy but four remained within the Union. The Civil War had begun. The son of a Kentucky frontiersman, Lincoln had to struggle for a living and for learning. Five months before receiving his party’s nomination for president, he sketched his life: “I was born Feb. 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Ky. My parents were both born in Virginia, of undistinguished families – second families, perhaps I should say. My mother, who died in my 10th year, was of a family of the name of Hanks ... My father ... removed from Kentucky to ... Indiana, in my eighth year ... It was a wild region, with many bears and other wild animals still in the woods. There I grew up ... Of course when I came of age I did not know much. Still somehow, I could read, write and cipher ... but that was all.” Lincoln made extraordinary efforts to attain knowledge while working on a farm, splitting rails for fences, and keeping store at New Salem, Ill. He was a captain in the Black Hawk War, spent eight years in the Illinois legislature and rode the circuit of courts for many years. He married Mary Todd, and they had four boys, only one of whom lived to maturity. In 1858, Lincoln ran against Stephen A. Douglas for senator. He lost the

policy became preponderantly a presidential concern. When the French Revolution led to a major war between France and England, Washington refused to accept entirely the recommendations of either his Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson, who was pro-French, or his Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, who was pro-British. Rather, he insisted upon a neutral course until the United States could grow stronger.



election, but in debating with Douglas he gained a national reputation that won him the Republican nomination for president in 1860. As president, he built the Republican Party into a strong national organization. Further, he rallied most of the Northern democrats to the Union cause. On Jan. 1, 1863, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation that declared forever free those slaves within the Confederacy. Lincoln never let the world forget that the Civil War involved an even larger issue. This he stated most movingly in dedicating the military cemetery at Gettysburg: “that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Lincoln won re-election in 1864, as Union military triumphs heralded an end to the war. In his planning for peace, the president was flexible and generous, encouraging Southerners to lay down their arms and join in reunion. The spirit that guided him was clearly that of his second inaugural address, now inscribed on one wall of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.: “With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds.” On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, Lincoln was assassinated at Ford’s Theatre in Washington by John Wilkes Booth, an actor, who somehow thought he was helping the South. The opposite was the result, for with Lincoln’s death, the possibility of peace with magnanimity died. – www.whitehouse.gov

Visitors can ‘go wild’ at Eglin with $5 day pass By Mike Spaits Team Eglin Public Affairs

FORCE EGLIN AIR BASE – Have friends and family visiting the area and want to take them to enjoy fun outdoor activities at Eglin’s reservation? The Eglin Natural Resources Management section (known as Jackson Guard) offers daily passes at a reduced price. Jackson Guard launched a new $5 daily recreation and fishing pass, making it easier for visitors to explore the base’s natural resources. Of Eglin’s 464,000 acres, approximately 250,000 are condition-

ally open to public recreation. The daily passes are a result of an ongoing partnership between Eglin and the Tri County Community Partnership Initiative and the associated Community Partnership Program. Through this partnership, the group identified daily outdoor recreation passes as the way to encourage visitors to experience the natural wonders of Northwest Florida. “We saw the need for visitors looking for fun activities in the outdoors who wanted to hike, canoe or kayak and enjoy a different aspect of the area other than the beach can buy a $5 permit and enjoy the day,” said Chris Johansen, Eglin

Natural Resources section outdoor recreation program manager. According to Johansen, the opportunities afforded by the $5 permits include disk golf, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, bird watching, canoeing/kayaking, mountain biking and running, among other activities on the reservation. The permits are available online at https://eglin.isportsman.net/. Maps of the range including canoe and kayak trail maps and mountain bike trail maps can be found on the site. The daily passes are already popular. More than 175 passes have been purchased since the first offering Oct. 1, 2016.

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.
