Fleet readiness starts with training excellence Navy training commands recognized with TEA From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) recognized commands for their accomplishments through the 2017 Training Excellence Awards (TEA) program Feb. 6. Ten learning centers and three training support centers are eligible for acknowledgment of superior performance in the annual program. “The entire NETC team is working hard to be better, faster and more effective in how we deliver training to the fleet to win in today’s competitive environment. Our learning centers are continuing to provide our Sailors with the training they need as they progress through their careers,” Rear Adm. Kyle Cozad, NETC commander said. “I am incredibly proud of the amazing amount of work that goes into this effort from our instructors and the staffs who support the entire training process.” Nine areas for learning centers and

seven areas for training support centers are evaluated for functional merit awards. When commands score 90 percent, they earn a “T” certificate for that category. The learning center with the highest score in all the functional areas receives the Training Excellence White “T” award, and the overall winner for the training support centers receives the Training Excellence White “TS” award. The 2017 overall award winners are: NETC Training Excellence (White “T”) • Center for Information Warfare Training, NASP NETC Training Support Excellence (White “TS”) • Training Support Center Great Lakes, Ill. These two commands receive a blue burgee to display throughout the 2018 calendar year to indicate their outstanding accomplishments and excellence in See TEA on page 2

Reminder on rules and regulations: No drone flying onboard NAS Pensacola By Ens. Lewis Aldridge NAS Pensacola Public Affairs Office

Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Martin would like to remind everyone both onboard and around the base that an understanding of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) rules and regulations regarding the usage of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is necessary in our ever-changing technologically advanced world. NASP is considered a NO DRONE ZONE. This means that unless specific written approval has been provided from the commanding officer, nobody, whether civilian or military, should be operating a UAS onboard the base. There are multiple tools, which can be referenced when determining the ability to operate a UAS in a specific area. The first place to visit would be the website faa.gov/uas.

NASP personnel witness Roy Jones Jr’s last professional bout By Greg Mitchell NAS Pensacola Public Affairs

It ended as Roy Jones Jr. had said that he wanted it to end; in front of his hometown of Pensacola. Showing flashes of his once-dominant self, Jones (66-9, 47 KOs) notched another win over journeyman Scott Sigmon (30-12-1, 16 KOs), 30, of Lynchburg, Va., via 10-round decision in a cruiserweight bout held at the Pensacola Bay Center Feb. 8. Jones, who won 98-92 on all three scorecards, turned 49 Jan. 16, and entered the match having sustained a torn bicep muscle during training, but performed solidly against a game but limited Sigmon. The fight was a part of the locallyproduced boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) “Island Fights 46” event under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner. TEA from page 1

The eligible learning centers are choreographing training for around 28,000 students daily at subordinate commands and detachments throughout the U.S. as well as overseas. The training support centers provide training and management services for about 10,000 students every day, as well as to the staff at learning center detachments and sites they support.

Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) provided service members, department of defense (DoD) civilians and their families the opportunity to see the fight live for free by providing a limited amount of tickets for admission. Several servicemembers and their families took advantage of the chance to see a future boxing hall of famer perform one last time in the ring. Jones began his meteoric climb to pugilistic fame during the 1988 Olympics, where he lost a controversial decision to South Korean fighter Park Si-Hun in the gold medal round, a bout in which afterwards saw all three judges voting against Jones suspended. The incident led Olympic organizers to create a new scoring system for Olympic boxing. Jones turned professional May 6, 1989, stopping Ricky Randall in the second round in Pensacola at the Bayfront Audi-

torium. Captivating audiences over the years with a dazzling ring presence and an unlimited boxing skillset, combined with hand speed and raw punching power, Jones' fighting resume consists of a list of the best of fighters predominately from the 1990's; Bernard Hopkins, James Toney, Antonio Tarver, Vinny Pazienza, Mike McCallum, Felix Trinadad and Virgil Hill, to name a few. In all, Jones won championships in four different weight classes; middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight. The heavyweight title was won in 2003 with a victory over then-champion John Ruiz, making Jones the second former middleweight champion (first was Bob Fitzsimmons) to win a heavyweight title in 106 years.

The CNRSE award puts F&ESGC in the running for being awarded the best fire department in the Navy, to be announced in the upcoming months. Fire Chief Timothy Dias credits the win to the hard work of the F&ESGC firefighters. “This is a department award, but it is to recognize our personnel,” Dias said. “They have been working really hard to get us to the next level.” Along with winning the CNRSE award, the department received awards for two individual firefighters.

boxing analyst while also training fighters such as Ikram Kerwat, who fought on the undercard, improving to 9-1 (5 KO) with an eight-round decision win over Angel Gladney, who fell to 9-14-1 (6 KO). With the win, Kerwat captured the WBU women's lightweight championship. A second Jones protégé, Pensacola junior welterweight prospect Devin Cushing, improved to 7-0 (5 KO) with a six-round decision win over Tommy Bryant (3-15-3, 1 KO). There is talk of Jones fighting another legend in the ring-be it of the mixed martial arts realm, former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in a cross-over boxing and MMA hybrid fight. But for all intensive purposes, Jones considers Thursday nights’ fight to be his last. With his retirement, Jones will be eligible for the International Boxing Hall of Fame in five years.

Officer of the Year and ABH2 (AW) Shane Barton won Military Firefighter of the Year. Both are part of the oil lift teams at NASWF. While winning the CNRSE award was a triumph for the department, Dias said they are working to expand their training courses. “We want to grow to the next level, so we are going to be hosting our own courses this year,” Dias said. “We are going to be building new courses and a full technical academy to get our people to the highest level qualification.” Dias hopes that the new training will assist the department in reaching new heights and keeping their firefighters in peak form.

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,

Is your cup half full or half empty? By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

M

y mother, a retired firstgrade teacher, has always put a positive spin on things that appeared to be sad, unjust, terrifying or disgusting. I have always admired her capacity to see the good in all things, but there are times when this ability seems out of reach. On a mud-splattered, dreary Monday morning in February, my mother would hear birds singing. Along a litter-strewn highway dotted with decrepit strip malls, my mother would spy Queen Anne’s Lace growing in a nearby ditch. If I served my mother a revolting casserole made from two weeks of mediocre leftovers, she would delight at the colorful pimentos. My mother could encounter a great big pile of excrement and chances are she would point out the “skats” scientific benefits – fertilization, seed distribution or composting. I know, because she has actually done this. Many times. Having been a military spouse for 24 years, I

found it difficult to channel my mother’s relentless positivity. Military moves, separations and inadequate pay were like big piles of excrement plopped down into our path. As far as I could tell, there were no benefits. These inevitable hardships were the sacrifices of military service. But just because I could not see a bright side does not mean there was not one. Take Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves, for example. After I packed up my entire household, left my job and everything I had come to know, said good-bye to good friends and our favorite pizza joint, was I supposed to see rainbows and unicorns? No, because there were

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers, including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeatandpotatoesoflife.com. no unicorns and rainbows, but there were certain hidden benefits of PCS moves. A fresh start, a clean slate or a reset was sometimes just what our family needed. Our first move overseas gave my husband and I an opportunity to travel together, rather than spending all our vacations with extended family. Our orders to move from Eng-

land were a ticket out of my tedious obligations as Parliamentarian of the Spouse’s Club. When we moved away from Virginia, we were relieved to get our son out of the school where he had been bullied. Our move from Germany enabled me to break up with the hairdresser who had turned my hair an unnatural shade of yellow-orange. During our move to Florida, the movers finally broke that microwave cart I always hated anyway. With each move, we were given a unique opportunity to reinvent ourselves, our routines and our living situations. And in that way, moving was actually a good thing. Let’s face it, military pay grades are not the stuff that dreams are made of. My minivan with 215,000 miles on it and interior carpeting that smells like pickled eggs is proof that military families are not wealthy. However, receiving military pay that is a matter of public record has its benefits, too. We never had to wonder how we stacked up to our military peers. Minivans, pot lucks and bill-splitting were never frowned upon. There was no competition or pretentiousness. And in that way, military pay was

actually a good thing. Believe it or not, even military separations offer something positive. Aside from the obvious “absence makes the heart grow fonder” phenomenon, there is also crumbs, clickers and communication to appreciate. Men are crumbproducing machines and during the times that my husband was deployed or on travel, I relished my crumb-free existence. I also savored full reign over the television clicker. But best of all, my husband and I communicated best when he was away. We e-mailed and called often, and never forgot to say, “I love you.” And in that way, military separations were a very good thing. Artists say that the lump of plaster is a masterpiece because “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Real estate agents will tell you that the old shack is “a charming Cape Cod.” And my mother will tell you that the dog-doo you just stepped in is an essential element of the circle of life. Families enduring the challenges of military life can put a positive spin on their world. No matter how dark it seems, as long as the sun shines, there will always be a bright side.

USS Iwo Jima begins 2018 deployment

From Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group Public Affairs Office

M

AYPORT, Fla. (NNS) – More than 2,500 Sailors and Marines aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7) departed the ship’s homeport of Naval Station Mayport, Fla., for a scheduled six-month deployment Feb. 7. The Navy-Marine Corps team will support maritime security operations, crisis response and theater security cooperation, while also providing a forward naval presence in Europe and the Middle East. “We have been training for this since we returned from the last deployment,” Capt. Joseph O’Brien, Iwo Jima’s commanding officer said. “The Iwo Jima Navy-Marine Corps team brings a full range of capability from humanitarian assistance to power projection ashore. Being deployed enables us to efficiently and effectively provide combatant commanders with sea, air and land capabilities in support of national priorities. Wherever Iwo Jima ends up and whatev-

er tasks are presented our way, these Sailors and Marines are ready to accomplish the mission.” Iwo Jima is the lead ship of the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group (ARG), which is also composed of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, the transport dock ship USS New York (LPD 21), the dock landing ship USS Oak Hill (LSD 51), Fleet Surgical Team (FST) 8 and FST-4, Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 28, Tactical Air Control Squadron (TACRON) 22, components of Naval Beach Group (NBG) 2 and the embarked staff of Amphibious Squadron 4.

Iwo Jima ARG. Iwo Jima’s deployment will include operations in the 5th and 6th Fleet areas of operation and, for a majority of the crew, it will be their first deployment of their military careers. “I am very excited to go on deployment,” AN Michael Goodwin said. “I know I’ll miss my family a lot, but I

know it’ll be fun to have this experience and see some new countries at the same time.” The Iwo Jima ARG is capable of performing expeditionary operations on remote shores in support of national policy. Other capabilities include rendering humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, promoting maritime security, rescuing distressed mariners,

evacuating non-combatant Americans and exercising with partner nations to promote theater security cooperation. For more information, visit www.navy.mil, www.face book.com/ usnavy, or www. twitter.com/ usnavy. For more news from USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7), visit www. navy.mil/local/lhd7/.

The CIWT N1 team: Total force manpower By MC2 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

Throughout the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT), the dedicated Sailors and civilian experts work tirelessly to prepare the next generation of information warriors for the fleet. So how does CIWT maintain such a high-caliber team? It all starts with finding the right person for the right job, and CIWT’s total force manpower (N1) team knows how to do just that. N1 is where every staff member’s journey at CIWT begins. They are responsible for ensuring that every position is filled, and with more than 1,000 civilian and military positions to manage, the eight-person N1 team plays a critical role in building, shaping and maintaining the CIWT workforce.

“Our biggest functions are ‘faces’ and ‘places’,” Wes Oliver, the N1 department head said. “Once there is a valid requirement, we determine how to meet that requirement and build that position or ‘place’. After we build the place, we look for the right employee, the ‘face’, to fill that requirement.” To find the right person for each job, N1 works closely with the Navy’s officer and enlisted detailers to ensure potential military staff members meet the requirements of their position. On the civilian side of the house, applicants are carefully screened and narrowed down to the best choices for the position before an official selection is made by CIWT leadership. “CIWT’s N1 team is a core component of the entire domain,” CIWT’s Commanding Officer Capt. Bill Lintz said. “They help build, strengthen and

maintain a diverse, integrated militarycivilian team comprised of the best people in the right jobs, all with a clear focus on CIWT’s mission. Additionally, our N1 team has been key to the success of aligning the personal and professional goals of our workforce with the needs of the Navy and joint services, while safeguarding the welfare of our Sailors, civilians and their families.” Beyond faces and places, N1 also takes care of the administrative requirements to maintain CIWT’s workforce. They manage employee training, benefits, career management and performance management and all associated record keeping. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of its N1 team, CIWT’s military and civilian billets are manned at more than 90 percent and filled by highly qualified and dedicated staff who are able to shape the

future of the Navy’s information warfare community. Additionally, N1 is key in creating a skilled workforce that leads, manages and delivers Navy and joint force training to 22,000 students annually at four information warfare training commands, two detachments and additional learning sites located throughout the United States and Japan. Center for Information Warfare Training delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

“I’m very impressed with the way our CFL team manages our group physical training sessions and the command’s participation,” said Cmdr. Jeffrey Buschmann, CIWT’s executive officer. “The workouts help build camaraderie and encompass everything from muscular fitness training to agility fitness training, weight lifting to cardiovascular conditioning. Everyone works hard to test their limits and they understand what you put in, is what you get out.” Research also shows that regular exercise is a key component of a healthy lifestyle, but working out with others may be even better. With group exercise, Sailors are more likely to hold themselves more accountable, build team work, shape mental readiness, develop positive self-concepts, emphasize the value of cooperation and develop lifelong recreation skills. Additionally, exercising with other hard-working Sailors can motivate them to push each other to power through. “What I enjoy most about CIWT’s physical training program is that our sessions are geared toward team building,” CIWT’s CMDCM Mike Bates added. “On the field or in the gym, our Sailors complete physical challenges together, push each other and don’t let each other quit. In the end, we get a great work out that is a lot of fun and allows us to come together as a one cohesive Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) staff participate in command physical fitness session team.” inside the Wenzel Fitness Center onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola Corry Station.

Travel Expo at NAS Whiting Field Story, photo by Ens. Caroline Ready NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Offices

T

he sixth annual Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Travel Expo, hosted by NASWF Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR), took place Feb. 8. More than 300 attendees were treated to displays from a variety of travel and recreation destinations from across the Southeast. The Travel Expo was held in the Atrium with more than 40 vendors in attendance, including Whiting Field’s very own MWR, Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), Navy Exchange (NEX) and Commissary. Vendors distributed information, brochures and promotional items including space ice cream, stuffed animals, sunglasses and more. Cynthia Myers, the base’s MWR community recreation manager, was in charge of the organization and execution of the Travel Expo.

“The purpose of the Travel Expo is to create awareness of reduced-rate leisure travel options available to active duty, retired, civilian employees, and military spouses,” Myers said. “Each year, vendors from around the country come to showcase what they offer through the MWR Community Recreation Office. This year, our vendors provided over $5,000 in door prizes and lots of destination travel information.” Travel Expo visitors were given a “passport” which they had stamped at each vendor display. Once passports were completed, visitors turned them in as an entry for a chance to win one of the nu-

Karie Barrett, the Dollywood representative, traveled from the Tennessee side of the Smokey Mountains to attend the Travel Expo. “We have been voted the friendliest park in the world 10 years in a row,” Barrett said. “We’re very proud about that. Dollywood consists of a small theme park which includes four rollercoasters, 30 rides, the world’s fastest wood-launch rollercoaster and eight theaters on the park with mini shows throughout the day.” The OWA was one of the closer vendors, located less than an hour and a half away. “We have a total of 21 rides and takes about four hours to experience the entire park,” Stacey Stater, a representative from OWA said. “We have Groovy Goat and Wahlburgers, those are our two signature restaurants that are open right now.” The event is the MWR Travel Office marquee event for the year.

Presidents Day:

Washington’s, Lincoln’s legacy of leadership resounds through the ages

A

ccording to the federal government, the holiday observed on the third Monday in February is officially Washington’s birthday (Feb. 19 in 2018). 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 to 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
