NASP joins with Navy, community collaborate to create new artificial reef Pen Air FCU as part of Military Saves Week By Jacqui Barker NSWC PCD Office of Corporate Communications

From Pen Air FCU

As part of Military Saves Week 2014, scheduled for Feb. 24March 1, NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) is spreading the savings message and urging the community to participate in Military Saves Week – and take the Military Saves pledge. “Military Saves Week is a great opportunity to help service members and their families in our community to ‘Set a Goal, Make a Plan, and Save Automatically,’ ” said NASP Command-

ing Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins, quoting the 2014 Military Saves Week theme. To help service members save more successfully and encourage them to save, FFSC is partnering with Pen Air Federal Credit Union (FCU) to offer military families (and DoD civilian employees) assistance. Information for the program can be obtained online at www.military saves. org or at www. penair. org. Military Saves brochures are available at any Pen Air

PANAMA CITY – Despite unseasonably frigid temperatures, U.S. Navy and Bay County personnel placed the last of 144 tons of concrete piling Jan. 31, and created a new artificial reef off the coast of Panama City Beach. The initial load of concrete was placed in a prescribed location at sea Jan. 29. Plans were to drop two additional sets of concrete pilings in the following days, but an ice storm shut down base operations onboard Naval Support Activity Panama City (NSA PC) and most of Bay County until the late morning of Jan. 30. The new artificial reef was built with materials of opportunity

Williamson signs proclamation for ‘Military Saves Week’ Story, photo by MC1(SW) Greg Johnson Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs

JACKSONVILLE – Rear Adm. Rick Williamson, Commander, Navy Region Southeast, signed a proclamation in support of Military Saves Week onboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville Feb. 6. Military Saves Week runs from Feb. 24 through March 1 and is intended to encourage service members to make responsible financial decisions to build wealth and reduce debt. The proclamation officially recognizes the week and calls on all service members throughout the Southeast Region to take action to improve their individual and household financial situations. “Personal financial stability is an important issue for all of our Sailors,” Williamson said. “It’s very difficult for Sailors and families who are experiencing financial difficulties to focus on the mission. Our goal with Military Saves Week is to encourage everyone to assess their financial situation and ask themselves what they can be doing to improve it. We have financial advisors and resources available through the Fleet and Family Support Centers (FFSC) for those who could use a little help.” Military Saves is a social mar-

keting campaign to persuade, motivate and encourage military families to save money every month and to convince leaders to be aggressive in promoting automatic savings. It is a part of the Department of Defense (DoD) Financial Readiness Campaign and has been a partner with DoD since 2003. “The campaign has been a success for more than 10 years now,” said Carol Lucius, Southeast Region work and family life coordinator. “If a Sailor has a certain financial goal, whether it’s setting up an emergency cash fund, getting out of debt or saving for retirement, Military Saves can help them develop those goals and take action.”

The program focuses on helping service members achieve their financial goals by providing savings advice, financial tools and resources, and motivation. According to Lucius, the program has a tremendous impact on service members because they routinely face extraordinary circumstances. “Deployments and frequent moves can be big financial strains on military households and good financial planning for both events is essential for success,” Lucius said. “FFSC personal financial managers (PFM), who are accredited financial counselors, will sit down with a family and help them execute a comprehensive financial plan-

ning worksheet to illustrate their current financial situation and to help them plan for the future. Whether a family is in good financial shape or not, PFM’s will work with them to improve their financial situation.” The Military Saves campaign is not only targeted at service members, but at the entire family, because spouses and children also play a huge role in overall financial stability, Lucius said. “The personal financial readiness of our service members and their families directly supports mission readiness, and engaging our military spouses is important, as they play a vital role in maintaining financial discipline and stability within a military

family,” she said. “Another important aspect of the campaign is helping kids develop financial skills. The Military Youth Saves program is specifically designed to encourage kids and teens to develop good savings habits at a young age.” According to Williamson, raising awareness about Military Saves and promoting effective financial planning and decision making is the responsibility of all leaders throughout the region, not only during Military Saves Week, but year round. “I think it’s important for leaders at all levels of the chain of command to spread awareness about the Military Saves program and the resources available to our Sailors,” Williamson said. “While we look to observe Military Saves Week later on this month, responsible financial planning is a year-round effort and there is always somewhere to turn for Sailors in need of assistance. I encourage leaders throughout the region to make sure that message is heard.” Service members or dependents that would like more information about resources and services offered through Military Saves, or organizations who would like to find out how they can support the program, should contact their local FFSC. In addition, more information is available at http://www. militarysaves. org/.

As runners complete the courses, they will hear a cornucopia of music from classic rock to modern pop to keep them motivated. After the half marathon, runners and spectators will be entertained with performances by local Pensacola bands on the main stage. There will be a mullet and best dressed rocker contest, but you might want to keep spandex to a minimum because this is a family event. Registration cost for the half marathon is $65 by March 16 and $32 for the 5K if also done by March 16. Everyone who registers will receive a poster and T-shirt and all half marathon finishers will receive a medal. For more information or to register, visit www.runrockn fly.com.

for artificial reef construction and therefore will provide a long term habitat and shelter for marine life,” said Golden. “It’s not solid waste. Many people may think we use the Gulf to dispose of unwanted material, but that is not what we do.” The concrete was initially planned to go to the landfill, however, NSWC PCD facilities and environmental personnel reached out to NSA PC, Bay County and Naval Facilities Command (NavFac) Public Works Department (PWD) personnel with a better option. According to NSWC PCD Facilities Branch Head Jason Zimmerman, the choice to put the concrete pilings to good use was a logical investment. “NSWC PCD chose to invest in an additional expenditure creating the artificial reef for two reasons – to divert 143.9 tons of solid waste from a landfill, and to use that material for the creation of an artificial reef,” said Zimmerman. “This reef will promote marine life and benefit Bay County residents and the tourism industry in the Panhandle of Florida.” To send the 143.9 tons of concrete to the Bay County landfill via dump truck would have cost the U.S. Navy $36,290, but to use the material to build an artificial reef that would support new ecosystems in the Gulf of Mexico waters, south of Panama City Beach, costs $53,500. Planning for the artificial reef took approximately 60 days. The approval of the artificial reef permit was signed by Golden Jan. 17.

Try a little tortured tenderness for Valentine’s Day By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I really do not mean to be a bummer, but I just googled St. Valentine and learned that, not only was he not the patron saint of lovers, Feb. 14 marks the date that he was imprisoned, tortured and beheaded in Rome in 269 A.D. Real romantic, huh? Apparently, the Feast of St. Valentine (a.k.a. Valentine’s Day) was not intended to celebrate romantic love until some crusty old 14th century English historians began propagating the legend that St. Valentine was martyred because he was caught secretly marrying persecuted Christians behind Emperor Claudius’ back. So, as much as we want to point the finger at Hallmark, Brachs, Whitman’s Samplers, The Melting Pot, FTD and the rest of the blood-sucking consumer industry, apparently they are not to blame for inventing Valentine’s Day. Regardless, there is certainly nothing wrong with reserving one day a year to recognize love, right? When I was a little child, Valentine’s Day was a fun affair filled with construction paper hearts, lace doilies,

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 20 years (and running). She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. cards imprinted with Ziggy, and red heart lollipops with white edible paint. In high school, the mere chance of getting a $1 Valentine carnation from a secret admirer was thrilling. Just in

case, my best friend and I always sent each other a “secret” carnation, which was smart, considering our dating track records. It was not until my senior year that I received a Valentine flower from an actual boy, but unfortunately, it was from a boy nicknamed “Goober.” Mercifully, I was finally able to experience Valentine’s Day bliss after meeting my Navy husband. There is nothing quite like the feeling of true love, and in the early years, we spent hours picking out cards for each other, covering every square millimeter with hand written words professing how doggone happy we were to have found our soul mates. And we meant every sappy word of it. Still do. However, after 20 years of marriage, the mandatory traditions of this manufactured holiday can seem like the torture endured by St. Valentine back in Rome. I know, I know, buying a card and planning a romantic evening with a loved one should not be compared to being stoned and beheaded. But when you have got the afternoon carpool, the minivan is caked with black snow, you

have to get a stool sample for the vet, and the water heater is on the fritz a g a i n ; Valentine’s Day can seem more like a day in hell. Unfortunately, middle aged couples get so bogged down with the relentless demands of life – teen angst, mortgage payments, slowing metabolisms, routine oil changes, lost retainers, low-water pressure, stray chin hairs – extraneous holidays become just another item on our already unmanageable to-do lists. These days, despite our best intentions, we do a lousy job of taking a day out to celebrate love on Valentine’s Day. My husband hurriedly runs into a convenience store to grab any old card on his way home from work. Before getting out of the car, he finds a pen between the seats and scribbles a generic sentiment

such as “Love ya bunches, Honey! XOXO” in large writing to take up space. He finds me in the kitchen, frantically trying to feed the children and dog, while folding the laundry and helping our daughter study for her chemistry test. We exchange a quick kiss and our hastily scribbled cards inside envelopes with still-wet glue. He rushes to change out of his military uniform, and I spritz on perfume to hide the scent of frozen tater tots. We dole out the requisite bedtime threats to the children, climb into our dirty minivan and fight the traffic to make our reservation. At the restaurant, we make our best effort at romance, ordering wine, canoodling and sharing dessert. But thanks to middleaged fluctuations in blood sugar, we start yawning before the clock strikes 9 p.m. I do not think that this “hurry-up-and-be-romanticbefore-I-fall-asleep” routine is what the Pope had in mind when he crowned poor St. Valentine the patron saint of love, but it’s the best we can muster on a weeknight. Besides, even the most tortured schedule should include a little time for tenderness.

Navy Olympic marksman Capt. Carl T. Osburn held ‘most medals won by an American’ for 48 years From Naval History and Heritage Command

T

he U.S. Navy’s Capt. Carl T. Osburn participated in three consecutive Olympic Games winning a total of 11 medals: five gold medals, four silver medals and two bronze medals, all for rifle shooting events. For 48 years, from 1924 to 1972, he held the record for the most medals won by an American in Olympic competition, a record broken by Mark Spitz. Shooting has a long and illustrious history at the Olympic Games. The introduction of the modern Olympic Games in 1896 by French nobleman Baron Pierre de Coubertin saw the inclusion of shooting competitions at the games. Coubertin, a former French Pistol Champion, supported the inclusion of four pistol and two high-powered rifle events in the games. Shooting “traditionally attracts the third largest number of participating nations of any sport at the Olympic Games,” and apart from two exceptions, in 1904 in St. Louis and 1928 in Amsterdam, has been part of every Olympic Games. Carl Osburn, then a lieutenant in the United States Navy, began his Olympic career in 1912 at the Stockholm Olympics, where he won the first four of his eventual 11 Olympic medals. Osburn was part of a 12-man team and participated in military rifle,

any-rifle and miniature rifle competitions, both team and individual. A very interesting and often entertaining account of the trials and tribulations of this team is presented in “Rifle Shooting at the Olympic Games of 1912,” an article by Navy Lt. Cmdr. Harris Laning, captain of the 1912 U.S. Olympic Rifle Team. In 1912, only military marksmen, with one exception, were considered for the American rifle competition teams because of the costs associated with sending competitors to Europe, and the time needed to physi-

cally travel to Stockholm. All military services, including the National Guard, were asked to send six representatives to the tryouts from which a total of eight were chosen for the Olympic team. An additional four were later added to create a 12-man team. “To make a place on that team meant a great deal to those men, for it at once placed them at the top of the military marksmen of the country and, if the team won in Stockholm at the top of the military marksmen of the whole world,” Laning noted. There were three U.S. Navy representatives on the 12-man Olympic team; Lt. Osburn, Hospital Steward W.A. Sprout, and Passed Assistant Surgeon W.M. McDonnel. The team had two weeks to train together at the U.S. Naval Academy range in Annapolis and learn new rules for the games. According to Laning, “not one man connected with the team knew anything at all about the any-rifle shooting (match-rifle), which is highly developed in Europe.” The United States Olympic team traveled to Stockholm aboard the S.S. Finland, a trip that took 16 days. In order to arrive in time for their first competition, the American rifle team disembarked in Antwerp on June 24 and continued on by train, a trip that would prove anything but smooth, arriving

commented on his team’s achievements. Taken in context of the world political situation in the early years of the 20th century, this may well have been the case. The first world war would begin in two years and Europe was on the brink of profound social, cultural and political change.

Picture perfect find: Spanish-American War in glass From Naval History and Heritage Command

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Photographic archivists from the Naval History and Heritage Command rediscovered a donation Feb. 5 in their backlog that may not have been seen by the public for more than a century: a box containing about 150 original glass plate photographs from the Spanish-American War. According to Lisa Crunk, NHHC’s photo archives branch head, the find is amazing. “The plates were individually wrapped in tissue paper and include full captions and dates, which were likely prepared by the photographer, Douglas White,” Crunk said. “The glass plates are in perfect condition and housed in a large wooden box with a leather strap, which likely allowed for it to be carried by the shoulder.” Further enhancing the provenance of the collection was an etching on the cover of the box: Photographic Slides, US Naval Military Activities, In and Around Manila, Spanish – American War – 1898 and Philippine Insurrection, Douglas White, War Correspondent. “Research on Mr. White discovered that he was a special war correspondent of the San Francisco Examiner during

the Philippine War,” Crunk said. Crunk said the collection is significant because the Navy played a central role in nearly every aspect of the Spanish-American war from logistics to diplomacy. “American planners and leaders anticipated that the fight with Spain would be primarily a naval war,” she said. “The U.S. Navy’s victories at Manila Bay and Santiago de Cuba were pivotal events that

turned the course of the war and joint Army-Navy operations at Santiago, Puerto Rico, and Manila sealed the success won by the U.S. Navy’s command of the seas.” The box of glass plates were found in an archival storage space as the photo archive team was preparing for a major renovation project. The entire collection is being rehoused into new archival en-

closures and shelving units. The discovery was made by archivists Dave Colamaria and Jon Roscoe during a survey phase of the renovation project. “Once it was realized what they had uncovered, there was tremendous excitement amongst the staff, especially the historians. The images are an amazing find, though they were never really lost – they were simply waiting to be re-discovered,” she said. Plans for NHHC’s photo collection include high resolution digitization, cataloging and eventual exhibition on the organization’s website. It’s part of ongoing dedication of resources and effort across the entire NHHC enterprise to reduce the command’s backlog of history, artifacts and art, renovate its facilities, support its museums, and maintain historic ships and aircraft in its collection. The NHHC, located at the Washington Navy Yard, is responsible for the preservation, analysis, and dissemination of U.S. naval history and heritage. It is composed of many activities including the Navy Department Library, the Navy Archives, the Navy art and artifact collections, underwater archaeology, Navy history, nine museums, USS Constitution repair facility and the historic ship Nautilus.

Naval Hospital Pensacola: ‘Call us first’ By Jason Bortz NHP PAO

Finding the time to visit Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) for an appointment is not always easy for enrolled beneficiaries, even with same day appointments offered at the Medical Home Port Teams. To assist beneficiaries who may have a difficult time scheduling appointments or who are looking for a more convenient

method to receive healthcare, the hospital encourages beneficiaries to contact their Medical Home Port Team by either telephone or secure messaging (RelayHealth) before making an appointment online because many symptoms or services can be done without even setting foot inside the hospital. “We are here if a patient would like to make an appointment, but that is not always necessary,” said Cmdr. Carolyn Rice, director of Medical Serv-

ices. “Many symptoms or requests can be addressed by either telephone or RelayHealth.” Symptoms such as those associated with colds, sore throats, diaper rash, pink eye and urinary tract infections can usually be treated without visiting NHP. Some prescriptions can be assigned or refilled and even school sport physicals can be completed if the child has been seen within the last few months by their Medical Home Port Team.

“We have nurses and staff that can assist patients by telephone or RelayHealth with some symptoms without making an appointment,” said Lt. Kristel Ramsay, division officer, Internal Medicine Clinic. “This can save the patient time.” The Medical Home Port Teams can also provide lab results over the phone or by RelayHeath. “Our goal at Naval Hospital Pensacola is to provide the best healthcare to our patients that

we can,” said Rice. “Whether that is here, at one of our Medical Home Port Teams, by telephone or RelayHealth, we do our best to provide that care in an efficient and convenient manner.” To contact one of NHP’s Medical Home Port Teams, call 505-7120 for Family Medicine, 505-7122 for Internal Medicine or 505-7121 for Pediatrics.

The importance of financial wellness cannot be overemphasized as it is not just a concern for personal well-being but professional as well. “It is important that we take actions to be proactive in our financial health as opposed to reactive,” said NASWF FFSC Financial Educator Eugene Jackson. “Mission readiness can be compromised due to a loss of security clear-

ances. The number one reason for the loss or denial of a security clearance is financial considerations.” When an individual says that they cannot afford to save for the future, Jackson responded with, “they cannot afford not to.” The goal of the Military Saves Week campaign is to encourage those who work on NASWF to “Set a goal. Make a plan. Save Automatically” and to take the Military Saves pledge. This pledge provides newsletters and information to specifically address financial goals of each individual. Whether the goal is to save for the future or freedom from debt, a specified plan can be created. According to research provided by America Saves, 86 percent of individuals reported an in-

On the road to DoD participants in the 2014 Winter Olympics Nine Soldiers officially named to 2014 U.S. Olympic Team Story, photos by Tim Hipps Army Installation Management Command

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Nine soldiers in the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program (WCAP) are members of the U.S. Olympic Team that will compete at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, scheduled for Feb. 7 through 23 in Sochi, Russia. The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) officially announced the team Jan. 27. The soldier-athletes named to Team USA are 2010 Olympic gold medalist in four-man bobsled Sgt. Justin Olsen, 26, of San Antonio; 2010 Olympic bobsledder Capt. Christopher Fogt, 30, of Alpine, Utah; 2010 Olympic bobsledder Sgt. Nick Cunningham, 27, of Monterey, Calif.; bobsledder Sgt. Dallas Robinson, 31, of Georgetown, Ky.; 2006 Olympic luger Sgt. Preston Griffall, 29, of Salt Lake City; and luger Sgt. Matt Mortensen, 28, of Huntington Station, N.Y. Three WCAP coaches also will represent the U.S. Army in Russia. Team USA luge coach Staff Sgt. Bill Tavares, 50, of Lake Placid, N.Y., will be making his sixth appearance in the Olympics, including once as an athlete and five times as a coach. Team USA skeleton coach Sgt. 1st Class Tuffield “Tuffy” Latour, 45, of Saranac Lake, N.Y., will make his fourth trip to the Olympics. He has coached U.S. and Canadian men’s and women’s bobsledders to Olympic medals. Team USA assistant bobsled coach 1st Lt. Michael Kohn, 41, of Myrtle Beach, S.C., is a two-time Olympic competitor who will make his Olympic coaching debut at the Sochi Games. He won a bronze medal in four-man bobsled as a WCAP athlete at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City. USA-1 bobsled driver Steven Holcomb, 33, of Park City, Utah, is the reigning Olympic champion in the fourman event. He spent seven years in the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program. The 230-member team is comprised of 105 women

and 125 men – the largest athlete delegation for any nation in the history of the Olympic Winter Games. The United States will be represented in all 15 disciplines across seven sports, and up to 94 of the 98 medal events that will be contested in Sochi. “We are thrilled to announce the 230 athletes who will represent Team USA in Sochi,” said USOC CEO Scott Blackmun. “This is the largest team we have ever sent to an Olympic Winter Games, and I’d like to commend all of those who helped support our athletes in the pursuit of their Olympic dreams.” The 2014 U.S. Olympic Team features 106 returning Olympians – including one five-time Olympian, two fourtime Olympians, 10 three-time Olympians and 23 twotime Olympians. Returning from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, where the U.S. finished first in the overall medal count with 37 medals, are 99 U.S. Olympians. Overall, among the veterans are 49 Olympic medalists, 13 of whom are Olympic champions. Nordic combined skier Todd Lodwick becomes the first American to compete at six Olympic Winter Games. The two U.S. Olympians headed to their fifth Olympic Games are Billy Demong (Nordic combined) and Bode Miller (alpine skiing). Only four other athletes in U.S. Olympic history, including Lodwick, have competed in five or more Olympic Winter Games. Additionally, women’s bobsled push athletes Lolo Jones – a two-time Olympic hurdler – and Lauryn Williams – a three-time Olympic sprinter – become the ninth and 10th Americans to compete at both the winter and summer editions of the Olympic Games.

letes are Miller and long track speedskater Shani Davis. A five-time Olympic medalist, Miller needs three medals to match U.S. short track speedskater Apolo Anton Ohno as the most decorated U.S. Olympian in history on the winter side. Davis is making his fourth Olympic appearance after winning consecutive Olympic gold and silver medals in the 1,000- and 1,500-meter events in 2006 and 2010. Both Davis and snowboarder Shaun White will have the opportunity to become the first American man to win three gold medals in the same event at consecutive Olympic Winter Games. Headlining the list of U.S. women’s athletes are threetime Olympic medalists Julie Chu (ice hockey) and Julia Mancuso (alpine skiing). Mancuso already is the most decorated U.S. Olympic female alpine skier, with one gold medal and two silver medals, while Chu is looking to help Team USA reclaim the top podium spot for the first time since women’s ice hockey debuted at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games. “This distinguished group of athletes represents the largest delegation in the history of the Olympic Winter Games, which is a true testament to the growing number of winter sport opportunities across the United States,” said Alan Ashley, chief of the U.S. mission and USOC’s chief of sport performance. “With 106 returning Olympians, this year’s team is an exceptional blend of youth and experience, and represents the finest our nation has to offer. During the games, we will continue to support our athletes, coaches and National Governing Bodies in every way possible to succeed.” Visit http://www.olympic.org/ for more.

Jokes and groaners Olympic-class awful jokes Old Olympic skiers never die. They just go downhill. Why isn’t suntanning an Olympic sport? Because the best you can ever get is bronze. “The European countries are really hoping to do well in the Olympics,” one comedian said. “If they win gold medals, they can use them as cash.” What’s a banker’s favorite Olympic event? Vault. “I really don’t see the point in Olympic archery,” complained one father as he watched the competition. Then his son piped up. “You would if one of the arrows flew toward you.” A reporter met a man carrying an eight-foot-long metal stick and asked, “Are you a pole vaulter?” “No,” said the man, “I’m a German. But how did you know my name is Walter?”

FIFI will be accompanied by the true combat veteran P-51 Mustang, “The Brat III;” the only Curtiss SB2C Helldiver in the world; and the C-45 Expeditor “Bucket of Bolts.” The airplanes were scheduled to be in Pensacola this weekend, but the visit has been rescheduled because of inclement weather. The aircraft will be on display. Visitors will have the opportunity to tour the B-29 and purchase

rides on all of the visiting aircraft. The Boeing B-29 Superfortress, first flown in 1942, began active service in 1944 and is perhaps best known as the aircraft whose missions over Japan helped bring about the end of World War II. It was designed as a replacement for the older B-17s and B-24s, with longer range and greater bomb loads. The B-29 was also used in the Korean War in the early 1950s and was a staple of the U.S. Air Force until the late 1950s. FIFI, celebrating her 40th year of flight with the CAF in 2014, will visit local airports in 11 Florida cities during February and March as the featured aircraft in the CAF AirPower History Tour. The tour brings aircraft, pilots and crews from more than 70 CAF units across the country together to create an ever-changing assortment of touring military air-

craft. The airplanes bring the sights, smells and sounds of World War II aviation history to audiences across the United States. These aircraft are “hands on” history lessons. The cost for admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children older than 10 and younger than 18. Children ages 10 and younger are free. All of the airplanes will be on static display when they are not flying. B-29 cockpit tours are included in the admission price. Ride prices range from $65 to $1,995. Ride reservations may be made at www.AirPowerTour.org, where information about each tour stop can also be found. The Commemorative Air Force honors the men and women who built, maintained and flew these airplanes during World War II. For more information, visit www.commemorativeairforce.org.
