NETC announces 2014 Training Excellence Awards Lt.j.g. Michael Hathaway NETC Public Affairs

The commander, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced the winners of the 2014 Training Excellence Awards (TEA) Feb. 3, honoring superior accomplishment in supporting NETC’s mission. These annual awards recognize commands that demonstrate the highest standards of training excellence in meeting fleet established requirements. “Delivering the highest standards of training and education ensures that our Navy continues to be the best in the world,” said Rear Adm. Mike White, NETC commander. “The winners of this year’s Training Excellence Awards epitomize the highest degree of training excellence found throughout the NETC enterprise and represent thousands of instructors and support staff around the globe. They all work exceptionally hard delivering cutting-edge training, ensuring that highly trained, top-quality Sailors are available to meet the needs of the fleet.” The Training Excellence Award competition structure resembles the Battle Ef-

fectiveness (Battle “E”) competition held throughout the fleet; recognizing sustained superior performance in an operational environment within a command. At the end of the year, each NETC training headquarters directorate assesses the learning centers and training support centers based on established performance measures, and total the results. Areas evaluated include results of Inspector General (IG) and safety visits, how well the staff manages training and student throughput, correct handling of specialty items such as ordnance, radiation and highrisk training. TEA Board Coordinator Dorothy Singleton noted that winning in the TEA categories is no easy task. “The 2014 TEA competition details the incredibly hard work performed in and behind the classrooms,” said Singleton. “The bottom line is delivering training that meets fleet requirements, and each of the winners demonstrated significant improvements and accomplishments as they carried out NETC’s strategic goals.” NETC training activities and those that conduct NETC training courses are eligible for TEA awards.

Volunteers from NAS Pensacola’s Marine Aviation Training Support Group 21 (MATSG-21) helped bring Mardi Gras to a group of special school children Feb. 6. Escambia Westgate is a school filled with very special people – teachers, staff and personal aides – who work every day to create the best educational experiences possible for their students

who all have severe and profound disabilities – from ages three to 22 years old. For many of these students, going to the downtown parades is just not possible. The Westgate Mardi Gras parade started in 1995 with three teachers pulling carts behind a riding lawn mower and throwing beads. This year, the parade involved hundreds of volunteers from more than 50 organizations.

NMCRS 2015 drive kicks off By Cher Holland Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society

Feb. 17 marks the kickoff of the annual Active Duty Fund Drive in support of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS). This fund drive is the main source of funds NMCRS used to help Sailors, Marines and their families. In 2014 alone, NMCRS provided $48.5 million to 63,800 eligible clients. These millions of dollars aided families in basic living expenses, transportation, car repairs, family emergencies,

NASP’s crisis response forces got a good work out during an active-shooter drill Feb. 5 aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). The drill, which was part of the Navy’s nationwide Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2015, involved a realistic scenario, said Chris Steinnecker, N7 Training and Readiness coordinator at NASP. It started with a suspect, played by GM2 Sean Prior of the NASP Security Department, rushing into Air Operations, Bldg. 1852, at Forrest Sherman Field with an M-14 rifle. The target of the attack was NASP Air Operations Officer Cmdr. Dan Heidt. Prior fired off seven magazines, or about 140 blanks, before security forces moved in to resolve the situation. Steinnecker said the suspect was “neutralized,” and in addition to the deceased

shooter, the casualty count was one dead and two wounded, including Heidt, with an arm wound. As part of the response, security and emergency personnel were called to the scene and NASP’s Emergency Operations Center was activated. Basewide emergency alerts to implement activeshooter procedures also were issued. Security officials said a new system called “Single

Officer Response” was used during the drill. The first officers at the scene moved in at once instead of waiting for backup to arrive. NASP Executive Officer Cmdr. David Jasso said the drill was valuable in that it helps to ensure that NAS Pensacola first responders are trained and prepared to respond in a manner that reduces or eliminates loss of life. “While the training

proves invaluable for our first responders, it is also of benefit to the many that work aboard the installation every day; testing our ability to communicate with installation personnel and their planned responses to a scenario like this,” he said. Burt Fenters, emergency manager at NASP, said the active-shooter exercise went very well. “An active-shooter scenario is one of the most challenging, rapidly developing scenarios that is usually over in minutes and, in most cases, has a potential high casualty count,” he said. “One of the largest challenges we face is getting the word out to over 20,000 personnel on board the installation complex (NAS Pensacola, NASP Corry Station, NASP Saufley Field and Blue Angel Recreation Park) within minutes.” Fenters said that to ensure the word gets out and mitigate a potential high

Ed Berry, a retired Navy helicopter pilot and member of the Pensacola Civitan Club has been volunteering with his organization at the Westgate Mardi Gras parade since the early days. “It has become one of the favorite parades of the season for many of the participants,” said Berry. “Over the years we have also learned that this parade is different. We can’t just throw things to the kids, we need to have people to hand the beads or toys to the children, or even put the beads around the necks of the students who need help.” It may be the closeness that makes participation so much more personal for the volunteers.

How can those who currently aren’t saving afford to save money? And how can those saving only a little save more? Here are Military Saves’ top tips for saving money when budgets are tight. Tip 1: To find small savings that add up to big savings over time, keep a careful record of all (and we mean all) of your expenditures for a month. You may be surprised to learn how much you are spending on such things as a daily latte or restaurant meals. Tip 2: For necessary purchases – such as food and transportation and insurance – comparison shop. Remember your commissary and exchange can offer you savings year-

round. Utilize these savings opportunities as you would your other military benefits. Tip 3: Restrain spending for birthdays and holidays, especially Christmas. A few well-chosen gifts are likely to be more appreciated than a more costly pile of gifts chosen thoughtlessly in a shopping mall foray. Tip 4: Interest rates on credit card debts and other retail credit lines can easily run 25 percent. You can save hundreds, perhaps thousands, of dollars a year by paying off these highcost debts. If you are located at a military installation you can get assistance at the family readiness center for free. Personal financial managers and counselors are there to help and can be a

Marine Corps Cpl. Silina Lee, from Marine Aviation Training Support Group 21 onboard NAS Pensacola, acknowledged that she initially didn’t know the details of the Mardi Gras parade, but as soon as she saw the children, she was hooked. “Being there was such a great experience; to see the joy on the faces of those kids just from us giving them beads, and shaking hands,” said Lee. “They made me happy knowing I made their day special. They had so much energy that even when my energy started to die down, they brought it back up with their smiles, and laughter.” The 2015 parade included krewes, businesses, law enforcement, ambulances, vintage cars, motorcycles, horses, clowns, military service men and women and decorated golf

great asset in getting a debt repayment plan in order. Another resource is NASP Fleet and Family Support Center (452-5102); they also offer free financial counseling. Tip 5: Build an emergency fund to avoid having to take loans to pay for unexpected purchases. That fund is usually best kept in a savings account, despite the low interest rates such accounts pay right now. But do try to keep a high enough balance in the account to avoid monthly fees many on-base banks and credit unions participate in Military Saves Week and offer great savings options during the Week and throughout the year.

carts. Every vehicle had someone throwing beads and toys. Other volunteers walked the parade route to hand out beads to those who were not physically able to catch them. “The kids have known the parade was coming for a while now and they arrived very excited,” said Terry Colburn, Escambia Westgate’s principal. “Over the years this mini-parade has grown to be an amazing show of community support for our students, their teachers, and our support staff. We also are so happy when the special education classes from McArthur Elementary and Lipscomb are able to come over and join in.” To learn more about volunteer and mentoring opportunities with local schools, visit the Escambia County Schools website: https://ecsd-fl.schoolloop.com/volunteers.

casualty count, the customer – i.e. base personnel – has to do their homework. “Trying to figure out what to do when an active-shooter event is occurring is too late,” he said. Here are two key recommendations from Fenters: • Have good contact information in the Installation Mass Warning System known as AtHoc. If you have an NMCI account, you can self-populate your information. If you are not Navy or Navy DoD, you can still have your information entered easily through a spreadsheet that the installation can provide. If you need help, contact your command emergency management coordinator. If you do not know who your coordinator is, ask the chain of command. If you still have questions, contact Fenters at the emergency management office, and he will help you. You can reach him by phone at 452-4481 or by e-mail at alan.fenters@navy.mil. • Personnel should have already practiced a drill in their work environment. They should be familiar with at least two ways to exit their work space, how to barricade themselves in their work area, and what to do once they are barricaded, such as silence cell phones and pull shades over windows. Fenters said multiple training aids are available, but timely notification, alerts, training and awareness are the most important tools personnel can use to increase the odds that they will not be a victim. Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield is the largest Force Protection exercise across the Department of Defense and is conducted by Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command and Commander (USFF), Navy Installations Command (NISC). It consists of roughly 130 simultaneous field training exercise attacks across the country. NASP, Corry Station and Saufley Field participated in the exercise, which started Feb. 2 and is scheduled to end today, Feb. 13. Other operations included gate events and increased Force Protection. Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield is a regularly scheduled event and is not a result of any specific threat, officials said.

beneficiaries,” said Cmdr. Carolyn Rice, director of Medical Services, NHP. “We analyzed the data and listened to comments from our beneficiaries to make the decision to change the hours.” TRICARE beneficiaries can visit the UCC for acute care symptoms such as minor lacerations and injuries, fevers, sore throats and cough. Beneficiaries with severe or life threatening injuries or illnesses such as head trauma, strokes or heart attacks should call 911 or visit the closest emergency room. TRICARE’s Nurse Advice Line is also available 24/7 at 1-800-TRICARE, option 1, to assist beneficiaries in deciding if a visit to an ER is appropriate. One of the benefits of using NHP’s UCC is that it is located within a hospital, which means beneficiaries with more serious conditions such as appendicitis, pneumonia, gallbladder pain or infections could be immediately admitted to the hospital and treated. While the UCC is open to all TRICARE beneficiaries, those enrolled with a Medical Home Port Team at NHP or one of its local branch clinics are highly encouraged to contact their Medical Home Port Team during normal hours before visiting the UCC. The Medical Home Port Team offers same day appointments and provides beneficiaries with continuity of care by its team of healthcare providers. Evening and weekend appointments can be made at UCC by either calling the UCC at 505-6731 or by visiting www. TRICARE online. com.

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

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

Now is the time to write your chapter of naval history By MC2 Eric Lockwood Naval History and Heritage Command, Communication and Outreach Division

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – If you haven’t started, now’s the time to begin gathering together your command’s Command Operations Report (COR) in preparation for the March 1 deadline, and to make the process easier, commands can now submit their reports electronically. Additional information about Command Operations Reports as well as a COR template can be downloaded: go to www.history.navy.mil/about-us/instructions-and-forms/submit-a-command-operations-report.html. By policy, all ships, submarines, squadrons and Navy commands listed in the Standard Navy Distribution List are required to submit a COR to the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) operational archive. The COR archive permanently records command operations and major achievements for future generations. For shore commands and squadrons, it’s the only record that remains reliably on file for future reference as they, unlike ships, don’t use deck logs. “In previous years, NHHC didn’t have reliable electronic storage capacity to receive all of the reports commands submitted via e-mail,” said Joe Gordon, NHHC’s lead reference archivist. This year, that limitation has been removed. It’s also been simplified. “In the past, we have had three smaller

How to submit a commentary

electronic mailboxes for Unclassified COR submissions. This year, we would like all unclassified COR submissions sent to archivemail@navy.mil in order to avoid confusion and decrease duplicate submissions. Confidential and secret CORs should be sent to the classified electronic mailbox, archives@navy. smil.mil.” However, Gordon said, “Top secret CORs should be forwarded via courier to NHHC, and SCI CORs and supporting materials should be forwarded via courier to the Office of Naval Intelligence. Reports and enclosures too large to be sent electronically may still be mailed-being careful to follow the guidelines for submitting classified material.” When e-mailing CORs, commands should use this subject heading: “Title of Command) COR Submission.” For example: “USS George Washington (CVN 73) COR Submission.” Additionally, said Laura Waayers, an NHHC archivist, “If people are sending photographs, CD-ROMs, or any other hard copy item, those need to be sent via

UPS or FedEx, not via the postal service. Our incoming mail is subjected to security measures and this process tends to damage just about everything. Unfortunately in the past, we have received historically valuable items in the mail that have been completely ruined. Photographs have been stuck together, ink has peeled off of documents, CD-ROMs have been damaged, etc.” For those who may never have written a COR before, the guiding instruction is OpNav 5750.12K. While the entire document should be read and understood, the heart of it is section three, the monthly chronology and narrative. The chronology includes major operational and other significant events by month, and the narrative provides details and context for each major event. Note: the listed e-mail address in the instruction has been replaced by the e-mail address for providing NHHC with unclassified material. When writing and compiling the report, commands should include any documents related to their primary activities, like deployments, underway periods, qualifications achieved and awards earned. Accuracy is essential. According to the archives staff, in the past, some important activities and information have been left out and “unpleasant” information deliberately omitted altogether, distorting the historical record. “A piece of advice to keep in mind is to use plain language,” said Waayers.

Spell out acronyms, describe operation names, etc. “The people who will be using these reports, for the most part, do not know what all the acronyms and abbreviations mean. I’ve been working for the Navy for five years, but I’m still learning ‘Navy speak’,” she said. These records retained at NHHC are a key source to respond to questions from veterans, Congress, scholars, media and the public about general naval history as well as historic details from specific ships and commands. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests are common, as well. When there’s no report to refer to, there is a gaping hole in the Navy’s historical narrative which also means the hard work and efforts of Navy commands and people go unrecognized. What’s worse is a missing COR may have contained the piece of information a veteran needed to acquire essential benefits such as medical care. To help compile a report, authors may consider keeping a diary throughout the year and have access to key documents and reports. Exceptions to the March 1 deadline are possible, but commands need to contact NHHC in order to get this extension. For more information, contact John Greco at John.Greco1@navy.mil, Laura Waayers at laura.waayers@navy.mil, or Dale “Joe” Gordon at dale.gordon@ navy.mil, or call the NHHC Operational Archive front desk at (202) 433-3224.

Commentaries are the opinion of the writer and should not be interpreted as official government, Navy or command policy statements. Reader submissions are welcome but should not exceed 800 words. Submissions must be bylined and include a daytime phone number or e-mail contact for the writer. All submissions are subject to editing to comply with policy and standards.

NHP: Responding to all situations Story, photo by MC1 James Stenberg NHP PAO

ormally, a rapid response team (RRT) consists of health care providers trained in early resuscitation intervention and advanced life support who respond to hospitalized patients with early signs of clinical deterioration in non-intensive care units to prevent respiratory or cardiac arrest. Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) utilizes its RRT to respond to any medical emergency that may occur at NHP. “The team responds to any sort of acute emergency that might happen in the hospital,” said Lt. Amy Starling, division officer, intensive care unit, NHP. “The purpose of our rapid response team is to bring critical care expertise to the patient whenever or wherever it’s needed.” With the conversion last year of the emergency room at NHP to an Urgent Care Center, the priorities of NHP’s rapid response team have shifted to encompass new areas of responsibilities. “Traditionally, the rapid response team was an inpatient function,”

said Starling. “If there was a patient admitted to one of the wards and the nursing staff felt the patient had a concerning change in their status during a regular assessment, they could call the rapid response team to get extra eyes on the patient. “When the emergency room (converted), we were faced with the situation of where to send a patient if they (needed immediate medical care). The rapid response team allows immediate triage and discharge of the patient. If a patient does have a life-threatening issue, the rapid response team can quickly assess and treat the patient.” When the rapid response team is called, three possible outcomes

could occur. The team will both treat the patient and inform them to follow up with their provider, admit the patient and treat the patient at NHP or stabilize the patient before transporting the patient to another medical care facility. The availability of NHP’s rapid response team to the entire hospital has had positive effects on the patients as well as the staff. “I’m proud of the new initiative that expands rapid response to outpatient care,” said Lt. Cmdr. Gabrielle Crane, department head, 5 West Medical-Surgical Ward, NHP. “I think it encourages a lot of team work across the hospital and it’s a great resource that anyone can call upon. It increases patient safety

and encourages a culture of teamwork.” The hospital conducts regular training to make sure all staff members are able to recognize the signs of patients in distress and how to properly call for the rapid response team. “One of the most meaningful stories since the implementation of

the rapid response team was a response from the general surgery clinic,” said Starling. “A patient was walking past the general surgery clinic with obvious facial drooping and slurred speech. A staff member immediately recognized the warning signs for a stroke, even though the patient had not, and acti-

vated the rapid response team. The team arrived and immediately got the patient (transferred) to a facility that specializes in stroke care.” Due to the efforts and training of the rapid response team, patients like this one and others are able to get the critical attention they need in a timely manner.

Travel road show coming to NASWF Feb. 24 By Ens. Jon Spoehr NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

M

ore than 20 vendors from across the region will descend on Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Feb. 24 to bring the best, most exciting and exotic in travel opportunities to members of the Whiting Field community. The Amazing World of Travel Expo will provide three hours of opportunities for discounts, travel information and door prizes in the base atrium from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. This event was set up by Information Tickets and Travel (ITT) director Marcy Allen and this is the third time the expo has come to NAS Whiting Field, although similar events have been running for more than 15 years at other area bases “This is a travel show that will be informative and fun. It is a great chance for base personnel

to speak with different travel establishments all in one place,” she said. “Tourism, hotels, activities and other venues will be represented. It is a wonderful time to ask representatives about new events, what they have to offer, various specials and more.” Given the geographic location of the base, many of the vendors will be Central Florida oriented, but vendors from other states in the area including Louisiana, Alabama and Georgia, will be on hand as well as some national travel companies. Participants

will include companies such as: Sandals Resorts, Universal, Busch Gardens, Emerald Coast Tours, Wonderworks, first time attendee Carnival Cruise Lines, and many more. All of these vendors are specifically chosen because they provide military discounts to travelers. Most of the attending travel companies

are supplying gifts for the door prizes and they will include gift baskets, tickets, vouchers and free hotel stays. There may even be some spontaneous prizes given away throughout the event. Allen and her co-worker in the ITT office, Cynthia Meyers, have been working for several months to make this event happen, and

they are excited at the prospect of supporting this event to benefit the base populace. “We are really looking forward to bringing an awareness to Whiting Field about travel opportunities and the services that ITT provides. It’s going to be well worth the effort,” Allen emphasized.

Things in the retention ponds along USS Intrepid Street are set to get a lot fishier over the next few months. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) released 75 largemouth bass in the retention pond Jan 20. This is in an effort to recover that ecosystem and ensure it thrives for years to come. The ponds were surveyed last year and there was found to be an overwhelming presence of bream, which range from one to six inches in length. “The presence of so many bream as opposed to other species was indicative of an ecosystem out of balance,” said Ron Cherry, natural resources manager at Naval Air Station Whiting Field. Largemouth bass are a natural predator of the bream, and will bring their presence in the retention ponds back to a reasonable level. The 75 largemouth bass were added

Largemouth bass are released in retention ponds at Naval Air Station Whiting Field. Approximately 75 bass were released Jan. 20 in the attempt to cultivate a healthy pond ecosystem. While largemouth bass are still currently catch-and-release only, these bass will grow to be 12-18 inches in length.

based on the size of the ponds, which can support 50 bass per acre according to FWC biologist Matt Wegner. “The bass that were added are currently eight to 12 inches long and may

grow as big as 16 inches in the months to come,” said Cherry. The increased predation by the bass on the bluefin populations will also cause the bream average sizes to increase as well, pleas-

ing local anglers. The ponds remain catch-and-release only, but this may change in the coming months. “As the bass populations in the ponds thrive, they may reach levels that will allow fisherman to keep some of the fish that they catch,” said Wegner. As to whether the fish will be suitable for human consumption is still open to conjecture. The retention ponds accrue runoff from the runways, however water first percolates through the wetland that is closer than the ponds. This percolation promotes a healthy ecosystem for the ponds, which appear healthy by accounts of the vegetation present. “The fish in the retention ponds have never been directly tested for toxicity levels” said Cherry, “But next year when the (FWC) return they will test the fish.” This could mean a lot of good eating for anglers at Naval Air Station Whiting Field in the coming years.

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. 16 in 2015). To most Americans, this holiday is commonly called “Presidents Day,” in honor of two presidents, Washington (born Feb. 22) and Lincoln (born Feb. 12).

A

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 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. 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 long-term 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.

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, Washington 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

Abraham Lincoln 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.

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.

Color Me: ‘The Oval Office’

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 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 speedily 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.

NMOTC CPO 365 volunteers aboard USS Alabama By MC2 (SW) Kaitlyn C. Boland NMOTC PAO

early 30 chiefs and first class petty officers from the U.S. Navy’s premier training facility for operational medicine and aviation survival training volunteered Jan. 31 aboard a floating piece of U.S. Navy history. Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) service members involved in CPO 365, a Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy initiative designed to foster leadership skills and teamwork, ventured to Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile, Ala., to perform rehabilitation aboard USS Alabama (BB 60). HMCM(SW/FMF) Omar Azmitia, NMOTC command master chief, said the importance of maintaining a link with Sailors of yesteryear cannot be understated, and with the proximity of USS Alabama to NAS Pensacola, the opportunity to involve NMOTC service members in this particular community service project seemed appropriate. “As chief petty officers it’s important to have a good sense of heritage, and as part of CPO 365, we integrate that sense of heritage with community serv-

ice by coming down here to USS Alabama and spending a few hours of our time refurbishing this old warship that truly deserves attention,” he said. NMOTC personnel were tasked with refurbishing a space aboard the vessel, using wire brushes and needleguns to remove layers of paint and rust from the nearly 75-year-old vessel. Naval Survival Training Institute (NSTI) HM1(SW/AW) Elda Rodriguez said the work performed by the nearly 30 service members served as a reminder of her early days in the United States Navy and the necessity of being involved in community service projects. “We were chipping – they’re getting ready to paint downstairs. It was great getting down and dirty; as first classes and chiefs we don’t get to do that enough, and this reminded me

of back when I was an undesignated deck seaman,” she said. “It is important to the Navy to do these sorts of community relations because we are ambassadors everywhere we go, and this is important for me because it brings the team together – we work together and that creates camaraderie.” Alabama citizens formed the USS Alabama Battleship Commission to raise funds for the preservation of Alabama as a memorial to the men and women who served in World War II. The vessel was awarded to the state of Ala-

bama in June 1964 and towed to its permanent berth at Battleship Memorial Park. The ship was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1986. NMOTC, the recognized global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training, oversees NSTI and reports to Navy Medicine Education and Training Command (NMETC). NMETC manages Navy Medicine’s formal enlisted and officer education and training programs, medical operational training for medical and medical sup-

port personnel deploying worldwide, and training that prepares aviators and flight crews to survive in land and water mishaps. NSTI, NMOTC and NMETC are 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 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.

COMMAND LINES

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.
