Civilians of the Year announced for NAS Pensacola By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer
Two civilian employees at Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) got the “Oscar” treatment when they were recognized for their outstanding work in 2013. During an awards ceremony Feb. 21, NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins presented awards to Christina Scott, who was selected as the command’s 2013 Senior Civilian of the Year (CoY), and Sandra Williams, who was selected as the command’s 2013 Junior Civilian of
the Year. Hoskins extended his personal congratulations for a “job well done” to each of the award winners, who each received an enthusiastic round of applause from the group of coworkers and guests gathered for the occasion. In a commendation letter, Scott was lauded for her “exceptional dedication, professionalism and superior performance” as an air traffic control specialist for the Air Operations Department at NAS Pensacola. Scott was described as

For the past 10 days, Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, NAS Whiting Field, NASP Corry Station and Saufley Field have been participating in antiterrorism/ force protection exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2014. This exercise is conducted every year by Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command and Commander, Navy Installations Command on all continental United States naval installations. The reason for Solid CurtainCitadel Shield is to ensure the readiness of Navy security forces and to train them in real-life crisis situations.
Systems around the base, such as mass communication systems and telephone and e-mail alerts were active in coordination with an active shooter exercise that took place Feb. 19 inside the 479th Flying Training Group headquarters. “It was a good event for security forces, fire emergency services and NCIS to operate together using the incident command system to communicate with the emergency operations center, who communicated on up (to Navy Region Southeast),” said Chris Steinnecker, N7 Training and Readiness coordinator at NASP. More than 100 base personnel from multiple agencies participated in just this exercise. “NCIS
was fully involved with the event from the response, to securing the crime scene, preserving evidence, interviewing the witnesses/injured, and all the way to debriefing and assisting security forces,” Steinnecker said. The active shooter scenario was one of the larger exercises held onboard NASP. Gate entry control point events were held earlier this week as well. These included security drills such as false ID checks, surveillance of the posts and gate runners. According to Steinnecker, the outcomes were favorable overall. All events were regularly scheduled exercises and were not held in response to any specific threat.
African-American/Black History Month observance ... NAS Pensacola is scheduled to hold its annual African-American/Black History Month program at the Naval Aviation Schools Command auditorium today, Feb. 28, at 11:30 a.m. Guest speaker for the event will be NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins. For more information, contact SH1(SW/AW) Lajoy Battle at 452-4755.

‘Military Saves Week’ is Feb. 24-March 1
FFSC: Time to get out of debt From NASP Fleet and Family Support Center
Military Saves Week (Feb. 24March 1) is a chance for individuals to assess their savings and take financial action. Now is the time to take action and “Set a Goal. Make a Plan. Save Automatically.” Roughly one in six savers has selected paying off consumer debts as their wealth-building goal. That does not come as a surprise since, along with modest incomes, large consumer debts are the most important financial reason that people have trouble saving and building wealth. The good news is that there is hope. With planning, discipline, patience, and maybe some outside help, almost anyone can reduce their debts and start to accumulate wealth. Are you in trouble? If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, then you probably need to get your debts under better control: 1. Can you only afford to make minimum payments on your credit cards? 2. Do you worry about finding the money to make monthly car payments? 3. Do you borrow money to pay off old debts? 4. Have you used a home equity loan to refinance credit card debts, then run up new revolving
balances on your cards? Why too much debt is costly? Borrowing more money than you can afford is costly in many ways. Americans spend more than $75 billion a year just on credit card interest and fees. That means that families who re-

lives. How can you reduce your debts? The first step in getting out of debt is to stop borrowing. To do that, you have to stop spending more than you earn. So, make a budget and cut out any expenses you can. It may help to cut up your credit cards or lock them away in a safe place. While you are making a budget, figure out the most you can afford to pay each month to reduce your debts, then make those payments without fail. If you have debts on more than one credit card, either pay off the card with the highest interest rate first and work your way down to the card with the lowest rate, or pay off the smallest loan first and work your way up to the largest. Once you’ve paid off your debts, don’t give in to the temptation to start overspending again. Instead, take the money you were paying each month on your debts and begin to save it. That will give you a financial cushion the next time an emergency strikes. Where to get help? You can get assistance at the Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), Bldg. 625, located onboard NAS Pensacola for free. FFSC personal financial managers and counselors are there to help and can be a asset in getting a debt repayment plan in order. They can be reached at 452-5102 and 4522631.

Paradise is priceless, no matter where you find it By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
Be it a sub-tropical seaside villa in Florida, a rugged mountain chalet in Montana, an Upper East Side condominium in Manhattan, or a Duck-Dynasty-esque Louisiana creekside doublewide – everyone has their own idea of the perfect paradise. And everyone hopes that someday they will end up retiring there. As a military family, we have lived in the North, South, East and West. We have lived in the heat and we have lived in the cold, we have lived where it is wet and lived where it is dry. After more than 20 years of marriage, we still have not decided where we want to end up someday. But we have learned that, no matter where we find paradise, it always comes at a price. The purple mountain majesty and fresh-caught wild salmon of Alaska will cost prolonged darkness and gargantuan mosquitoes. The Painted Desert dawns and star-studded dusks in the Southwestern states will cost egg-frying temperatures and poisonous critters that like to hide in the garage. The flip-

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. flop friendly retirement mecca of Florida with its endless palm-studded sandy beaches and cornucopias of coconut shrimp will cost seven months a year of stifling swampy humidity, not to mention throngs
of turkey-leg munching theme park tourists. The anatomically flawless people, golf-perfect climate, and Spicoli-surfer vibe of California will cost damaging earthquakes, cray-cray politics, and jaw-dropping cost of living. The salt-of-the-earth folksiness and charming farming towns of the Midwest will cost land-locked monotony and trailer-tossing tornadoes. The quaintly clapboarded Northeast with its technicolor seasons will cost frigid, saltencrusted, pale, chapped, winters that seem to go on forever. We have lived in New England for six months now, and strangely, I love it here. Even though, as I write this column, a Nor’easter is howling through our base housing neighborhood in Newport, R.I., caking our windows with blown snow, depositing fourfoot drifts in our yard and causing the trees to strain ominously against the gusting winds. Ensconced in umpteen layers of clothing and copious applications of Chapstick, I stare out our frosted window and wonder how I could consider this place paradise. Why don’t I think, as many do, that long winters are too high a price to pay for this lobster-
fed, leafy New England lifestyle? Apparently, somewhere in my snowy Western Pennsylvania childhood, I was brainwashed. I loved winter. The sledding, the skiing, the skating, the icicles, the hot chocolate, the itchy wool sweaters, the waffle-woven long underwear, the runny noses, the cold toes, the roaring fires. To me, winter was nothing short of a total blast. In fact, one of the worst things that ever happened to me was when I broke my femur tobogganing one night in fifth grade. Sure, the broken leg was extremely painful, but what really hurt me was missing out on the entire blizzard of 1977 because I was laid up in the hospital in traction for six weeks. While all my friends were having the time of their lives slipping and sliding down every slope, embankment and drift in town when schools were closed for two weeks, I was watching “The Don Ho Show,” avoiding another Salisbury steak served on a pink Melmac hospital tray, and try-
ing to learn how to balance on a bedpan. After all that childhood conditioning, I now react to cold weather like Pavlov’s pooch when a bell rings. When those first snowflakes fall from the sky, a certain nostalgia wells up in me, and I get excited about everything winter brings. Like pots of hot soup and mittens drying on the radiator. Like rosy cheeks and paw prints in the snow. Like black leafless branches silhouetted against clear blue skies. For many, w i n t e r ’s dirty chunks of ice, slick roadways, salt-hazed cars and unrelenting chill are too much of a price to pay to live in northern climates. Sure, I will admit, when March rolls around I will be envying our Navy friends who are nursing their first sunburns in Hawaii and Florida. But the bright saffron and violet crocus heads will dot the northern landscape soon enough, heralding the muchanticipated arrival of spring. And besides, winter is a small price to pay, when you consider that finding your own perfect paradise is priceless.

Margaret Flowers Civic Award
ilitary personnel have been an integral part of the Northwest Florida community since establishment of the Pensacola Navy Yard in 1825. Throughout the years, personnel stationed at the Pensacola Naval Complex have contributed countless hours of volunteer time to local church, civic, educational, fraternal and other service organizations. Their work has greatly enhanced the quality of life in Pensacola. In the 1960s the Pensacola Council of the Navy League established an annual program to recognize volunteer efforts. In 1980, the program was revised and new criteria established. Each year, naval commands in the Pensacola area are invited to nominate a candidate. Selection is based on the following criteria: • Civic work in the community: 55 percent. • Leadership: 15 percent.
• Proficiency in rate: 15 percent. • Personal appearance: 15 percent. Civic award nominees are honored at a luncheon each year. One individual is selected as the overall winner. This year’s recipient is ABH1 Charles Ellis Jr. (see profile on page 1A). Below are the other nominees for this year. The trophy is named the “Margaret Flowers Civic Award” in honor of Margaret Flowers, a career civil service employee. Her long and devoted record of service to the Navy and the community culminated with her final tour as NASP public affairs officer. The award is named in her honor because she embodies the true esprit de corps of community and social involvement.

BM1 Anthony Avila, Naval Aviation Schools Command
Avila’s uncompromising professionalism and service before self have directly contributed to the success of Naval Aviation Schools Command and the local Pensacola community. His dedication to the local community has positively impacted Pensacola community organizations and events including Day of Caring, Adopt-a-Highway and the Special Olympics. In addition to dedicating countless hours of his personal off-duty time toward volunteer efforts, he ensured the success of his staff and students under his charge while actively seeking additional responsibilities. True leadership by example is what this topnotch Sailor displays on a daily basis. He is a vital asset to Naval Aviation Schools Command and the Navy. CTN1 Ryan Greenbauer, Navy Information Operations Command, Pensacola
Greenbauer is a selfless servant of the community and a model Sailor. As the command community service coordinator, he coordinated 16 community service events involving 87 command members, providing more than 700 hours of service on behalf of Navy Information Operations Command (NIOC), Pensacola, and the Navy.

During his off-duty time, he volunteered 31 hours towards activities with the Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park, Salvation Army and helped with the Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show. He received two letters of appreciation from the commanding officer for his direct influence on Sailor retention and education. Brown’s tireless efforts to improve his community are remarkable. His sustained superior performance is evident in and out of the command. LS2 Christopher Carmichael, Navy Medicine Operational Training Center
Carmichael has served as a highly motivated and devoted coach for the Perdido Bay football and softball leagues. He has dedicated more than 600 hours coaching, mentoring and the development of 42 Pensacola area youth.

His abilities to successfully balance a challenging military career, instruct at a demanding school and find the time to dedicate himself to others, speak volumes his character. Tech. Sgt. Edward DeAlejandro, 359th Training Squadron, Detachment 1
DeAlejandro has amassed 702 hours of personal volunteer time and coordinated 251 volunteers that accumulated a combined 879 volunteer hours.

Bud Day a final salute at Barrancas National Cemetery. He spearheaded the unit’s Wingman Day and is an assistant scout master in the Boy Scouts. He is not just molding the next generation of civic leaders; he is building better Americans. He is a leader within the detachment and his character is beyond reproach. Lance Cpl. Haley L. Tacey, Aviation Maintenance Squadron 1, Marine Aviation Training Support Group 21
Tacey has distinguished herself by spending numerous hours volunteering for the Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Northwest Florida. She continuously mentors young children and provides a positive example for them to emulate.

NHP: Education key during American Heart Month Story, photos by MC1 James Stenberg NHP PAO
ebruary is American Heart Health Month, a time dedicated to educating Americans about the risks and benefits associated with the health of such a vital organ. Heart disease remains the nation’s No. 1 cause of death for both men and women. Every year heart disease takes the lives of about 715,000 Americans or approximately one out of every four deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control. “Any kind of abnormalities of the heart can fall under heart disease,” said HM1Anh Nguyen, leading petty officer, Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) Cardiology Clinic. “The main areas we look at are the blood vessels of the heart, also known as the coronary arteries.” One of the most common symptoms associated with heart disease is chest pain. A person can develop chest pains for various reasons such as a muscle skele-

tal disorder, muscle strain, muscle pull, acid reflux, heartburn, indigestion or a problem with the heart. It is often difficult to differentiate whether chest pain is associated with the heart or a different part of the body. “We see patients of all ages and evaluate their chest pain to determine if it is a heart pain or non-cardiac pain, meaning not coming from the heart,” said Cmdr. Jerry Chandler, cardiologist at NHP. If a heart disease is discovered during an evaluation, one of the most common types is coronary artery disease. It is caused by plaque buildup in the walls of arteries, which in turn restricts blood flow to the heart causing discomfort, chest pain and eventually heart failure. “Coronary artery disease is when the fatty deposits in the plaque line the walls of the arteries that give the heart its blood supply,” said Nguyen. “Over time, as those arteries become significantly blocked, they can cause a heart attack.” The coronary arteries supply the heart with the blood it needs to operate properly. When the heart cannot get the blood flow it needs, it stops. To help prevent this from happening, Chandler and Nguyen give A vital signs monitor shows the heart rate, oxygen two primary pieces of advice. saturation and blood pressure on a simulated patient “Exercise. Exercise. Exercise,” said Chandler. “Exat NHP. ercise is really important. You should exercise as many
days of the week as possible for 30 to 45 minutes. Running is great if you can, but if you have some orthopedic problems or have knee pain and can’t run, you can get an effective cardiovascular workout while walking briskly.” “Don’t smoke,” added Nguyen. “Smoking may not affect you in the immediate term, but 10, 15, 20 years down the line, when you turn 50 or 60, it takes a toll. The longer your heart is healthy, the longer you can potentially live.” Even with leading a completely heart healthy lifestyle, a person’s arteries will still get some clogging. “As we go through life, our arteries, just through the natural process of aging, are going to get a little bit clogged with fatty deposits of plaque,” said Nguyen. “That’s why the (goal) is prevention. By having a healthy diet, exercise and controlling your blood pressure, our hope is that (arteries) don’t become so blocked that we have to do something.” NHP supports a heart healthy lifestyle with a variety of options for beneficiaries including smoking cessation classes, lifestyle coaches and dietitians. If beneficiaries would like more information, they can contact their Medical Home Port Team to discuss options.

Whiting Sailor honored with Quilt of Valor Story, photo by Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
ust a few short weeks after returning from an individual augmentee (IA) tour in Afghanistan, MAC Kenneth Pratt received a pleasant reminder of what his service meant to those he took an oath to protect. Anita Stephens and Betty Davis from the Flying Needles Quilt Guild in Niceville presented Pratt with a quilt in honor of his commitment to the Navy and nation. The 65inch by 75-inch red, white, and blue quilt followed a Navy theme and is one of thousands presented each year to returning service members each year as part of the Quilts of Valor (QoV)
program. The QoV program has been giving quilts to those wounded or touched by war since 2003. The organization was founded by a Blue Star mother, Catherine Roberts, who began the foundation in response to her son’s deployment to Iraq. She acted on a “desire to see that returning warriors were welcomed home with the love and
gratitude they deserved,” according to the QoV website, www.qovf.org. The Flying Needles Quilt Guild is one of hundreds of organizations across the country to participate in the QoV program.

NETPDTC 2013 Civilian of the Year; See page B2 Spotlight
You wait all year for it; an extra holiday you get just for living on the Gulf Coast
s a major holiday in parts of Europe and South America, the celebration dates back to 1703 when the tiny French colony of Mobile, Ala., observed North America’s first Mardi Gras. The Cowbellion de Rakin society took loudly to the streets in 1830 armed with rakes, hoes and cowbells plundered from a hardware store and no doubt later kept the feast with whatever food and drink they had. Although they marched on New Year’s Eve and not Fat Tuesday, it was a true antecedent of Mardi Gras in Mobile and the first mystic societies, which were later formed in the 1830s. Later, in 1857, the Mobile members of the Cowbellian de Rakin Society traveled to New Orleans and assisted with the formation of the Mystic Krewe of Comus, to this day New Orleans’ most prestigious Mardi Gras society. From these early roots grew the Mardi Gras celebrations found today in the Port City. The stress of the Civil War brought an end to the annual festivities in Mobile. After the war and under Union occupation, the city was disillusioned and discouraged. On the afternoon of Fat Tuesday in 1866, Joseph Stillwell Cain set out to raise the spirits of Mobile. He donned Chickasaw Indian regalia, called himself “Chief Slacabormorinico,” climbed aboard a decorated coal wagon pulled by a mule and held a one-float parade through the streets of Mobile. Mardi Gras with all its frivolity was reborn. Cain founded many of the mystic societies and built a tradition of Mardi Gras parades, which continue today. In fact, he is remembered each year on Joe Cain Day, which is the Sunday before Ash Wednesday. Known as “the people’s day,” Mardi Gras revelers decorate anything they can push, pull or drag for the Joe Cain procession and parade, which is as much fun to watch as it is to ride. Cain himself participated in each year’s festivity until he died at age 72.

NETPDTC 2013 Civilian of the Year announced By Katrina Gergely NETPDTC Public Affairs
he Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC) announced its 2013 Civilian of the Year (CoY) Feb. 13. The 2013 CoY, mathematical statistician Andrea Ducker, works for the Navy Advancement Center (NAC) in the exam execution division designing, developing and performing statistical functions and controls that ensure the accuracy and integrity of the Navy Enlisted Advancement System (NEAS) process. NEAS provides administrative advancements and exam development, directly impacting more than 300,000 Sailors per year. “I was surprised to find out
Blue Angels lend a hand at food bank
that I had been selected as CoY,” said Ducker. “The other nominees are all very talented, hardworking individuals. It is an honor and I’m grateful just for being nominated.” Ducker started with NETPDTC in 2008 as a cooperative education student while simultaneously attending the University of West Florida in Pensacola. She has worked on a number of projects supporting critical Navy personnel programs including researching and developing statistical projects for use in NAC’s evolving
exam development processes. This included work on exam and question psychometrics, exam bank management and exam construction. Psychometrics is a branch of clinical or applied psychology dealing with the use and application of mental measurement. “This project has been one of the most challenging experiences I’ve encountered,” said Ducker. “I’ve enjoyed working with my peers, learning different processes and exchanging ideas to develop creative solutions.” Sue Dickerson, a co-worker in the NETPDTC Statistical Analysis Branch, credited Ducker’s insight into the exam process for her CoY selection. “Much of our successful work is due to Andrea’s abilities, one being the ability to see both the big picture and the details from all angles,” said Dickerson. “When we are on a team together my confidence about the decisions and analy-

NILAND, Calif. (NNS) – Members of the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, helped sort and bag donated food at the Niland Food Shed to give to 219 families in need in Niland, Calif., Feb. 19. Several Blue Angels team members, along with Lt. Jared Smith, Naval Air Facility (NAF) El Centro base chaplain, assisted in bagging and distributing more than 400 bags of food for those in need in the Niland area. “I want to thank the Blue Angels for coming
sis we provide is much greater.” Ducker’s supervisor, NAC’s Statistical Analysis Branch Head Darlene Barrow, relies on Ducker’s abilities to develop output for in-house requests and for projects supporting the Department of Defense. “Andrea has a deep understanding of statistics, great insight on project requirements, a tremendous ability in analyzing data, and provides fast turnaround on output requested,” said Barrow. “Andrea’s work is definitely
to our Niland community relations event,” said Smith. “Their presence and participation help bring added awareness to the needs of the Niland community and the efforts of the Imperial Valley Food Bank to meet those needs,” he added. AM1 Arnold Bredesen, assigned to the Blue Angels power plants work center, said he enjoyed helping the volunteers and community. “I had a great time today,” Bredesen said. “Being able to help so many people with the Blue Angels team is extremely rewarding.” AM1 Eric Van Damme, assigned to the airframes work center, commented on why he en-
important to the Navy.” During a recent all hands event, Capt. Janet Lomax, NETPDTC’s commanding officer, said Ducker is a true superstar and recognized her for spending extensive man-hours researching innovative statistical methods and approaches for exam and item statistics. “Mrs. Ducker’s evaluative analysis on past exam administration and test item banks were invaluable to the Navy Advancement Center exam development processes,” said Lomax. “Employees like Mrs. Ducker work quietly behind the scenes, but their efforts pay huge dividends in achieving our command mission. I continue to be awed and inspired by the NETPDTC Team.” For more information about the Navy Advancement Center and the Navy Enlisted Advancement System visit https:// www. facebook.com/ pages/ Navy- AdvancementCenter.
joys the opportunity to support this effort. “It’s great to be able to do community outreach again,” he said. “Helping at the Niland Food Shed is a great way to kick off our 2014 air show season.” Throughout the year, Blue Angels team members participate in community outreach programs similar to the Niland Food Shed at their home in Pensacola and at many of the air show sites they visit. The Blue Angels are currently conducting winter training at NAF El Centro and are preparing for the 2014 air show season, which kicks off at NAF El Centro March 15.

Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away. The SafeHelpline provides live crisis support and information by trained staff.

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows a victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services and safety interventions. To access an unrestricted report, the victim can report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), SARC, and his/her CO shall commence an investigation. Restricted reporting allows a confidential report, which does not trigger command nor law enforcement notification and the victim can have a SAPR VA, and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim can disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care provider and/or a chaplain.
