NASP firefighting team named best in region Department will go on to compete at CNIC level By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field PAO

“Protecting those who defend our country” is not just a slogan for military fire departments, it is a badge of honor that drives them to be the best of an elite corps. So when a fire department is named the best within a 13 command region, it is an honor that pays tribute to a great deal of hard work, dedication and commitment. Such is the recognition obtained by Fire and Emergency Services Gulf Coast (F&ESGC) when they were recently announced as the Commander Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE) nominee to compete for the Navywide Navy Large Fire Department of the

Year for 2012. For Fire Chief Frank Barrow it is a stirring opportunity to see his guys recognized for their efforts. “I am excited, really excited,” he said. “It is awesome to be recognized by your peers across the region, and it’s a tribute to the guys and their hard work. The selection means a lot to the organization as a whole.” NASP CO Capt. Christopher Plummer is delighted with the selection as well. “The folks from Fire and Emergency Services Gulf Coast are top-notch professionals who do incredible work. I am extremely proud and pleased to see them

Scorby signs ‘Military Saves Week’ proclamation By MC1(SW) Greg Johnson Navy Region Southeast PAO

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Rear Adm. John C. Scorby Jr. signed a proclamation in support of Military Saves Week at Navy Region Southeast (NRSE) headquarters on board Naval Air Station Jacksonville Feb. 13. Military Saves Week runs from Feb. 25 through March 2 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 vital to our mission readiness,” Scorby said. “If our war fighters and their families are experiencing financial problems, it makes it very

In memoriam: Father Jack Gray ... The Pensacola area, to include NAS Pensacola, is mourning the loss of Rev. “Father Jack” Gray, 68, after his death last weekend. After 16 years as pastor of St. Anne’s Catholic Church and serving as chaplain for Naval Hospital Pensacola and Navy League Pensacola, he then became the Catholic chaplain onboard NAS Pensacola, often seen at dedications and other celebrations on base. He had a long career in the priesthood, but also worked in politics, serving as deputy secretary of state in Indiana and for Ronald Reagan’s 1996 presidential campaign. He also worked as a broadcast journalist in his early years and after joining the priesthood, served as the Pensacola Press Club’s first chaplain. A funeral mass was held yesterday (Feb. 21) at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. His death followed heart surgery a few days before. Photo by Janet Thomas

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’s (DoD) Financial Readiness Campaign and has been a partner with DoD since 2003. “This has been a successful campaign for 10 years,” said Carol Lucius, NRSE Family Readiness Program work and family life coordinator. “If a sailor can identify a goal, whether it is to set up an emergency cash fund, get out of debt, make a down payment on a car or home, set up a regular and automatic savings plan or saving for college or retirement, Military Saves can help you develop your goals and take action.” The program focuses on helping service members develop financial goals and taking the proper steps to achieve them by providing savings advice, tools, Awards from page 1

to six contractors by NASP Executive Officer Cmdr. David Jasso. “On behalf of Capt. Plummer, I want to congratulate all of you for a very good program, but more importantly, I want to thank you,” Jasso said. Before Jasso passed out the certificates and took questions from the crowd of about 40 contractors, active-duty and DoD civilians, he noted the extreme fines and penalties that can result from mismanagement of hazardous waste. “There’s no option when it comes to this program,” he said. “The awards are presented to highlight those coordinators that have gone above and beyond as good stewards of NAS Pensacola’s mission and the environment,” said Winifred Jones, Public Works Pensacola Environmental Office Hazardous Waste Program manager.

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,” she said. “Fleet and Family Support Centers’ (FFSC) personal financial managers (PFM), who are accredited financial counselors, will sit down with a family and help them execute a comprehensive financial planning 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.” Service members or dependents who would like more information can call NASP FFSC at 452-5990 or visit http:// www. military saves.org.

The base’s hazardous waste program provides technical assistance to all base activities and tenant commands that have processes generating waste for disposal. NASP has been very proactive in education and awareness associated with hazardous waste management practices, and has held monthly hazardous waste meetings and trainings for the more than eight years, Jones noted. “The result of these education efforts is reflected in the fine work the point source coordinators perform at the hazardous waste satellite accumulation areas,” Jones said. “The excellence in which they perform their jobs makes it possible to meet the dayto-day environmental compliance requirements and makes the annual FDEP hazardous waste inspection an opportunity for our team to excel in management practices.”

Vol. 77, No. 8

There have been no hazardous waste violations onboard NASP and only one area of concern in the past seven years. The area of concern was correctly immediately, Jones said, before completion of the inspection report. The six hazardous waste point source coordinators recognized were J.J. Clemente (NATTC), Dodie Matlock (DelJen), Mark Hicks (Sikirsky), Marc Wellhaven (L3Vertex), David Holm (DynCorp) and Lance Holcomb (L3 Vertex).

across so many facilities, it would seem chaotic. But Barrow stresses that while multi-faceted, F&ESGC is all one team. “As an organization, we come together to meet the mission. We have a lot of area to protect, and we were effective and efficient in covering our area,” he said. “We have outstanding people. The key to our future is how the military and civilian firefighters work together, and every day we become stronger.” As the unit takes the next step at the Commander Naval Installations Command level, they will continue to be graded on their customer service, previous awards, innovativeness, health and safety initiatives and quality of life initiatives. It is a daunting task with a lot of equally notable fire stations in the mix, but F&ESGC has already impressed one of their main customers – NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin. “When we come to work, we know we are safe because of the great job this team does every day,” he said. “I couldn’t be happier for them and I know CNIC is as appreciative of their accomplishments as I am.”

for all calls, including 452 numbers. All speed dials on your phones will need to be reprogrammed. After the upgrade you will need to dial 99 to get an off-base line. You will need to dial 94 to get a Defense Switched Network (DSN) line. The DSN prefix for NAS Pensacola and NASP Corry Station will change to 459. The DSN prefix for NASP Saufley Field numbers beginning with 473 will change to 753. All hands need to modify their global address entries to reflect the new DSN prefix. The base communications officer will be reprogramming all in-building key systems after the main switch is upgraded. This will take some time and there may be outages while waiting for technicians to reach your building. Contact your building telephone liaison officer concerning any problems that occur after the telephone switch upgrade. The new dial plan will take effect March 2 for NAS Whiting Field. NAS Whiting Field’s telephone switch upgrade is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. March 2 and is expected to take approximately eight hours. The base telephone switches will be out of service during this time period. People will not be able to dial in or out from any (850) 623-XXXX or (850) 665-XXXX numbers until the switch upgrades are completed. Mardi Gras for CDC children ... Ten classes of preschool age children from the Corry Child Development Center (CDC) celebrated Mardi Gras Feb. 12. “They walked over to the NEX carrying beads to throw,” said CDC’s Patrice Ryan. “The children made their own masks and many dressed up in costumes as well. They walked through the NEX throwing and handing beads to the customers and sales associates.” Andrea Beck, NEX special events coordinator, hosted the event. The NEX held a contest and the associate who collected the most beads won a prize. “Many of the customers seemed to think it was very cute to see the children, since there were lots of ‘thank yous’ and smiles,” Ryan said.

earn this award,” Plummer noted. F&ESGC is a disparate fire department that oversees a 4,500 nautical mile operational area spread out among 18 locations. Based primarily out of Naval Air Station Pensacola and Naval Air Station Whiting Field, the station also has primary jurisdiction over all the Navy Outlying Landing Fields belonging to the two bases. With more than 560,000 flight operations across 18 airfields, it is a challenging duty that the team handles effectively. More than 6,800 calls for services were made throughout 2012, and all were completely and competently mitigated to a successful outcome. While many were standby calls in case of an emergency, the team responded to a large number of emergency calls as well, including three life-saving actions. In addition to the on-base requirements of the department, the station also has mutual aid agreements with the surrounding areas and assisted in 185 incidents to help community fire departments. Reacting to an emergency is only one facet of the team’s mission. F&ESGC also works diligently to prevent emergencies from hap-

pening. The unit stressed fire prevention programs and reached more than 44,000 people at work, schools, home, shopping centers and daycare locations to help train people on prevention techniques. The team also inspected more than 800 facilities and reviewed more than 250 self-help projects for safety before they were initiated. The fire stations also conducted greater than 550 fire and exit drills at schools to help maintain the safety of the children. The F&ESGC team has to be flexible to react to the wide variety of problems they may encounter in the field. Whether it is a hazardous material spill, structure fire, home injury, car accident, or aircraft mishap across a multitude of potential locations, the station members maintain the capability to meet the crisis. That is the trait of his firefighters that Barrow prizes the most. “That is the key for meeting our missions … Everyone works hard to ensure we are meeting our customer’s needs across multiple locations. The people make it happen, and without a great team we wouldn’t be successful,” he said. With a complement of 123 military and 129 civilian firefighters working for two different commanding officers

Guidelines vary for military non-support claims Lt. Courtney Gordon-Tennant Region Legal Service Office Southeast

One of the unique things about the military is that unlike the private sector, commands can be contacted by spouses, ex-spouses and ex-partners who claim that the service member is not providing (any or enough) financial support. Alimony vs. child support Financial support to a (former) spouse is called alimony or spousal support while support for the children is child support. If a person is ordered by a court to pay alimony, the individual paying the alimony may deduct that from their income taxes and the person who receives the alimony must declare it on his/her taxes. Alimony is not an automatic entitlement. Judges will consider many factors such as the length of the marriage, the age and health of the spouse, education, previous salaries and earning potential when they decide if that spouse needs alimony, how much and for how long. Child support, on the other hand, is never tax deductible no matter how high the payment. For the service member (or anyone else about to go through a divorce), it is vital to leave a paper trail to document support. Why? Because divorces and custody battles get ugly, and (bitter) soon-to-be-exes may lie to receive more support. One day, the parties may be very agreeable, but the next day things can be very different. It is better to get an agreement in writing (i.e. e-mail) so that it doesn’t become one person’s word against another’s. Instead of giving the soon-to-be-ex cash, it is best to give him/her a check memo, an electronic transfer, or an allotment followed up by an e-mail. This protects the service member when there is a claim of non-support; it also helps prevent the

claimant from getting back support (also known as arrearages), a penalty paid on top of the required support. What are the guidelines for each service? • Navy: MilPersMan 1754-030 (www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/reference/milpersman/1000/1700Morale/Do cuments/1754-030.pdf). The Navy’s guideline is suggested in the absence of a mutual agreement or court order. If a spouse claims non-support, but there is a written agreement between the two parties, that agreement is valid and will govern. The MilPersMan is not an entitlement or a punitive order, so commands cannot directly punish service members (i.e. Captain’s Mast) for disregarding the MilPersMan standards. That does not mean that commands can’t take indirect measures such as denying reenlistment. Once support becomes a court order, commanding officers can punish a service member for failing to follow the order or the amount can be garnished directly from wages by DFAS. • Army: Army Regulation 608-99 (www. apd.army.mil/pdffiles/r608_99.pdf). In contrast to the Navy, the Army regulation is punitive. This means that in the absence of an agreement or a court order, the Army battalion commander can order the service member to pay a specific amount based on the formula in AR 608-99. If the service member fails to pay, then the commander can take him/her to an Article 15. • Marines: MCO P5800.16A or the Marine Corps Legal Admin Manual Chapter 15 (www.donsapro.navy.mil/ PolicyandInsturctions/MCO%20P5800 .16A%20CH%201-5.pdf). Like the Army, if there is no agreement between the parties or a court order, the Marine’s commanding officer

can order the Marine to provide support. The order is punitive, and Marines who refuse to provide support are subject to punishment under the UCMJ and/or adverse administrative action. • Coast Guard: Guard-ComDTInsT M1600.2, pp. 2-27 to 2-34 ( w w w. u s c g . m i l / d i re c t i v e s / c i m / 1000-1999/CIM_1600_2.pdf). In the absence of a court order or mutual agreement, the levels of support set forth in the instruction govern. Members who fail to support their dependents may face negative counseling on their performance evaluations, and/or administrative separations. • Air Force: The Air Force does not list any specific dollar amount or fraction for support. If the service member gets an allowance for dependent support, it should be used for support. If an Airman receives BAH (basic allowance for housing) at the higher, with dependent’s rate, but does not support his/her dependents, that BAH may be reduced to the without dependents rate for the months of non-support. Commanders have to authority to consider disciplinary or administrative action. When can support be waived? Sometimes, the Navy and the Coast Guard allow the service member to contact DFAS if the spouse has deserted the service member without cause, physically abused the service member, or committed adultery. The Army allows spousal support to be waived when the spouse’s income is greater than the soldier, if the soldier has been substantially abused by the spouse, the spouse is in jail, or the soldier provided support for 18 months. The Marine Corps allows waiver when the spouse’s income is greater than the Marine’s, the Marine has been abused by the spouse, the Marine provided support for 12 months,

or the Marine is already providing regular support. If granted, spousal support may be waived, but not child support. Although in some branches, the absence of a court order and a spouse’s misbehavior may excuse the service member from paying spousal support, child support can never be excused. If there is a court order directing support payments, garnishment can take several weeks or even months. To prevent arrearages (i.e. penalty for missed payments) contact the state child support agency to arrange payment. In sum, these guidelines apply when the service member is on active duty and there is no court order and no agreement between the parties. The unsupported spouse/ex cannot go into court and ask for support under the military guidelines; she/he would refer to the state’s specific guidelines. For assistance contact the nearest Region Legal Service Office legal assistance department.

USS Theodore Roosevelt crash and salvage team maintains skill at Pensacola training center Story, photos by Lt. Jonathan Bacon NATTC PAO

T

he Flight Deck Crash and Salvage team from the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) completed proficiency training at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola Feb. 9. “Crash and salvage teams from around the fleet travel to NATTC every 18 months to renew their flight deck certification,” said course supervisor ABHC Geoffrey Wyatt. “While they were here this week we trained them how to fight flight deck fires, proper crash and salvage procedures, and how to safely lift and remove damaged aircraft. While their ship is in the shipyard, the training they receive here is important for them to

maintain their expertise.” For Theodore Roosevelt’s Ens. Josh Napoli, the training is crucial to giving his junior team members experience they need. “Being in the shipyard, our manning is low and we are unable to conduct regular training,” he said. “Many of my team members are new and this training gives them the knowledge and experience they will need once we leave the yard and get back to sea. They will use the experience they have

important to the team’s lifesaving mission. “Our primary purpose is to save lives,” he said. “If we aren’t properly trained, not only will it hamper our efforts to save lives in burning aircraft, we also put ourselves at risk, too. There is nowhere that we can experience fighting real aircraft fires, except here at NATTC.” ABH1 Jeremy Bliss, Theodore Roosevelt’s crash and salvage team assistant leading petty officer, explained that the training is very important for team building. “This training teaches the new Sailors to rely on the other members of the team,” he said. “Our time at NATTC is very important in building trust and camaraderie.” Since its commissioning in 1942, NATTC has been committed to delivering training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy and Marine students annually. The majority of the student population is made up of junior enlist-

ed personnel attending “A” schools, where they are learning the skills and knowledge required to perform as apprentice level technicians in the fleet. NATTC also provides airman apprenticeship training, personal financial management and shipboard aircraft firefighting training. NATTC provides advanced schools to provide higher level technical knowledge for senior petty officers, and technical training for officers in aviation fuels, carrier air traffic control center operations, amphibious air traffic control center operations, aircraft launch and recovery equipment and shipboard aircraft fire fighting. Additionally, NATTC supports the fleet by providing team training to the fleet, to ensure that shipboard personnel have the proficiency required to take their ship on deployment, after a prolonged period in port.

RTC commemorates Black History Month By Brian Walsh Recruit Training Command Public Affairs

GREAT LAKES (NNS) – Recruit Training Command (RTC) commemorated this year’s Black History Month with a command-wide event Feb. 21 in Midway Ceremonial Drill Hall. RTC staff celebrates the historical contributions and sacrifices made by African Americans striving for equality, blazing a trail for future Sailors. The first African American officers in naval history were commissioned in 1944. The 12 commissioned officers

and one warrant officer became known as the “Golden Thirteen.” “February is the one month out of the year set aside to focus on the contributions that African Americans have made to the Navy and society,” said Cmdr. Kertreck Brooks, executive officer of RTC. “I feel it is important to recognize the legacy of accomplishments and honorable service of blacks which historically, were omitted from our overall history.” In 1917, John Henry Turpin became the first African American chief petty officer, the Navy’s highest enlisted rank

at the time. A chief gunner’s mate, he was one of the Navy’s first divers and was one of the people responsible for perfecting the underwater cutting torch. “Black History Month to me is a time to recognize the struggles and contributions African Americans made to allow me to have the opportunities I have today,” said ITCM(SW/FMF) Troy Thibeaux, leading chief petty offer for Student Control Department. “It also gives us an opportunity to educate younger generations about the growth of our country.” For nearly two decades leading into

World War II, the Navy’s AfricanAmerican Sailors had been limited to serving as mess attendants. However, the good examples of heroes such as Mess Attendant 3rd Class Doris Miller, who was awarded the Navy Cross for courageous conduct and devotion to duty during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and the willingness of thousands of patriotic men gradually forced changes. Though the Navy remained racially segregated in training and in most service units, in 1942 enlisted rates were opened to all qualified personnel.

Pensacola NJROTC unit visits NATTC Story, photos by Lt. Jonathan Bacon NATTC PAO

Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) hosted 34 Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) cadets recently, showing them how the Navy trains Sailors and Marines to become aircraft mechanics and technicians. The cadets from Pensacola’s Pace High School and their naval science instructor, retired Marine 1st Sgt. John Blake, toured the aviation learning center to see how Sailors and Marines are trained for the fleet through a blended learning solution that includes standard classrooms, hands-on labs, simulations, as well as computerbased and interactive courseware training. The tour began in the center’s John Finn Aviation Ordnance Hangar. NATTC instructors Marine Sgt. Rebecca Whitmeier and AOC Brett Szczerba discussed daily student life and aviation munitions with the cadets, and showed them how students are taught to maintain and build aviation ordnance, including bombs and missiles. Afterwards they visited the aircraft engine lab, where Sailors and Marines are taught how to maintain and repair fixed-wing and rotary aircraft engines. AD1 James Hile explained the various jet engines on display to the group and spoke about being an aviation engine mechanic. A portion of the tour included how Sailors are taught flight deck operations. While on the Air Department Flight Deck, the cadets observed NATTC personnel lift

traffic control school house, while there the group was shown how air traffic controllers are taught to safely direct incoming and outgoing aircraft at both shore facilities and aboard ships. “I enjoyed the chance to tour NATTC and see the quality training and skills that enlisted Sailors and Marines are receiving,” said Cody Dixon, a junior at Pace High School. For more than 70 years, NATTC has been delivering training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy and Marine students annually. The majority of the student body is comprised of enlisted personnel attending “A” schools, where they are gaining the knowledge and skills required to perform in fleet as technicians at the apprentice level. Advanced schools provide higher level technical knowledge for senior petty officers, and specialty schools offer specific skills not particular to any one rating, such as airman apprentice training, maintenance, personal financial management and shipboard aircraft firefighting. NATTC also conducts technical training for officers in aviation fuels, carrier air traffic control center operations, aircraft launch and recovery equipment, shipboard aircraft fire fighting and amphibious air traffic control center operations.

MWR plans ‘Military Saves Poker Run’ to encourage fiscal awareness By Jay Cope NASWF PAO

The annual Military Saves campaign is designed to enable the entire military community to implement sound fiscal practices into their everyday lives. The first step toward succeeding in that goal is education about what kinds of financial information is available within the military system. Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation department and the Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) are working to enhance the financial awareness level of the Sailors, Marines, Airmen and Coast Guardsmen at the base through a Military Saves Poker Run the week of Feb. 25 through March 2. Funded by a grant from Commander Navy Installations Command (CNIC), the event combines Military Saves’ educational initiatives with the fun of a Poker Run contest. The end result will be an enjoyable way to learn about fiscal readiness with the chance to win a few prizes. “This will be a unique spin on a traditional program,” Ashley Platts, the event coordinator stated. “The poker run will combine something fun while highlighting the importance of savings using on base resources.” As opposed to traditional, single-day, poker runs on motorcycles, this event encourages active duty service members to visit various locations on the base and perform a specific action involved with saving money or increasing financial knowledge. Participants have the entire week to complete the course, and upon completion at each station the

service member will receive a playing card. The person with the best, five-card, hand at the completion of the contest will win a Pen Air Federal Credit Union gift card. Other gifts will be presented as well at the closing event at Ace’s Pub, March 1, at 3:30 p.m. The course will have six stops: the Liberty Center, Pen Air, MWR Outdoor Recreation Center, the Navy Exchange, the commissary, and a rotating option of locations to take the Military Saves pledge. The

schedule for the pledge includes: MWR Coffee Shop from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Feb. 25, Feb. 27 and March 1; the bowling center from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. March 26; and the commissary from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Feb. 28. The pledge may be taken all week long from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Fleet and Family Support Center. The “Saver’s Pledge” is simply an online promise to ones’ self that “I will help myself by saving money, reducing debt and building wealth over time. I will help my family and my country

be encouraging other Americans to ‘Build Wealth, Not Debt.’ ” The Military Saves campaign has partnered with the Department of Defense since 2003 to encourage members of the military community to save toward a better financial future. While the campaign includes family members, DoD civilians and others in their target audience, the poker run is restricted to active-duty and reserve service members due to stipulations in the grant that is funding the event. The poker run is just one of

several Military Saves events planned through the week. FFSC has informational tables established at each of the pledge stops to educate on the benefits of saving money. Additionally, classes on budgeting, savings and investing, home buying, and the Thrift Savings Plan as well as credit management will be taught throughout the week at FFSC. It is all part of a team effort to help improve the financial lives of people who work at NAS Whiting Field.

NASWF VITA unavailable; NAS Pensacola VITA can help By Jay Cope NASWF PAO

Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) office will, unfortunately, no longer be counted among the more than 100 Navy centers worldwide geared to help Sailors and their families with their annual tax preparation. The volunteer force necessary to run the office is no longer available due to manning cuts to the NAS Whiting Field staff. The shortage of available personnel combined with the high-tempo requirements of aviation training restricted the ability to provide a consistent, quality product to the customers. According to Bill Brock, the VITA coordinator for the past several years, it is a disappointing and unavoidable reduction in services to the base team. “The VITA program at NASWF has served thousands of active duty, dependents and retirees over the past 10 years. Unfortunately, the unintended consequence of personnel reductions is the elimination of the volunteer staff required to run this program,” he said. Naval Air Station Pensacola’s VITA offices are willing to help, and their assistance team is available by calling 452-5588. There are four locations in the Pensacola military complex. Locally, the program has saved military families more than $42,000 in preparation fees on roughly 320 tax returns totaling in excess of $480,000 in refunds. Individuals who would like to have their taxes prepared at a VITA office are asked to bring valid photo identification; W-2 forms for all jobs held by family members; correct social security numbers and dates of birth for all family members; employer ID numbers for child care providers; bank and routing numbers; child care and education expense statements; any other tax forms

received; and a copy of last year's return. Last year, Regional Legal Services Offices’ (RLSO) tax centers began to shift to “self service” assistance to help teach service members how to prepare their own tax returns. The idea was to help promote financial accountability and teach Sailors, or their families, an enduring life skill. The concept is expanding, and now all four VITA offices at NAS Pensacola are self-service programs. The program enables customers to use the free tax filing software on computers established in Navy tax centers with the assistance of IRS-trained volunteers. The returns are processed electronically and generally arrive in about two weeks. “Our staffing has been reduced about 50 percent, and that’s why we moved to the self-help model,” said LN1 Tiffany Garfield, the Pensacola area VITA coordinator. “Many people have questions about their taxes, and that’s why VITA is here. We have a dedicated staff here, and we are more than willing to help.” All four offices are available to assist, but Garfield stresses that non-active duty personnel are likely to be best served by the Bldg. 624 office at the main base. Questions should be addressed to that office by phone at 452-8594. The tax filing deadline is April 15 this year, and VITA centers will be open through that date to assist customers. If utilizing services at NAS Pensacola is not feasible, another alternative is to file taxes for free online through Military One Source at http://www.military onesource.mil/. Military One Source is available to active and reserve service members, their spouses, and DoD civilians and their spouses. To find the nearest VITA center, or for more information, go to the Navy JAG Corps Web site at http://www.jag. navy.mil/.

“February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.” By Elsbeth Martindale http://www.couragetobloom.com

T

here is so much for teens to think about as they approach romance and dating. The breadth of information needed for happy, healthy relationships is great, and with teens, the emotional landscape through which those lessons must be learned can be pretty rocky. There are three very important questions, however, that can and should be asked, questions that will help get to a core of valuable information across that landscape. Teenagers will benefit from hearing the importance of these questions in small doses, over and over, in different settings, and from different angles, in order for this wisdom to become familiar and integrated. This kind of information and discussion will help them create a solid foundation for building positive relationships throughout their lives. 1) Do you like how this person is walking through the world and where they are headed? This is a question that encourages teens to look, listen, and scrutinize the people they wish to date. The question gives permission to be both picky and reflective. It is much more important for a teen to be asking if they like

someone than asking if someone likes them. This may seem selfish but it is an act of self-respect, not selfishness. When teens focus on whether they are liked by another, rather than their own preferences and desires, they set themselves up to be dependent on others for validation and direction. This question also encourages teens to accept others as they are. Invite teens to be real about the person they are interested in, seeing them accurately, faults and all. By asking this question teens may avoid taking on a relationship as a “project,” or partnering with someoneʼs potential rather than who they are right now. When teens ask this question they will look out at the future (not always an easy task for an adolescent) to see where others are going. Implied in this is a call to see if this direction is in harmony with teens own goals and

aspirations. 2) Can you trust this person? This is probably the most important question to have answered to determine the viability of a future relationship. Healthy and sustainable relationships are built on trust. Without it, the relationship is doomed to be either short lived or continually conflictual. Teach children to know how to assess if someone is trustworthy. Talk about the importance of honesty and truth-telling in a partner, since deceit erodes trust more quickly than anything. Trust allows for comfort and ease in a relationship, and it is in this kind of environment that individuals and relationships can grow and blossom. 3) Does this person bring you joy? This question also puts the focus inward, asking teens to listen to themselves. Being reflective

and self-examining helps teens steer their lives with conscious intention. It encourages them to be self-directed and responsible. Teach teenagers to listen to their own heart and make this the focus of their dating experience, especially focusing on what brings them joy. There are many nuanced questions that

can be broken out of these three main concerns. And there are many more questions that teens can ask themselves and their potential partners. But these core questions are a perfect place to start. If possible, begin teaching teens to think about these kinds of questions before they get involved in a relationship. Encourage them to follow their attractions but to do so from the kind of rational framework that these questions are meant to provide. By keeping the above questions in mind as they begin dating, teenagers will be able to look within themselves, to know how to choose partners wisely and thoughtfully, and be better able to enjoy the delight of exploring romance while perhaps keeping their heart protected. For more information, visit http://www. loveisrespect.org/ and http://www. thatsnotcool.com.

Onboard NAS Pensacola, Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) Victim Advocate Lorri Sawyer notes, “This year the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the State of Florida Department of Children and Families embraced and are sharing the vision of creating a place for all. “PARK – Peace, Acceptance, Respect and Knowledge – was created by the Youth Community Action Team to bring awareness to Teen Dating Abuse. “Take the opportunity to start a conversation about healthy relationships and talk about signs of an unhealthy relationship. Better yet, model positive behavior. Check out www. knowyour peace.org and ask yourself, If not us, who? If not now, when?”

More than 30 volunteers from Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) and its satellite clinics were hard at work rehabilitating parts of the old battleship to their former glory. The Alabama was commissioned in 1942 and served in World War II in the Atlantic and Pacific theaters. She was decommissioned in 1947 and retired in 1962. In 1964, the Alabama was taken to Mobile Bay and opened as a museum ship the follow-
