Service members from the Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) kicked off the 2013 annual fund drive for the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) for the Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola region at a breakfast Feb. 22 at the Mustin Beach Club. Capt. James N o r t o n , NMOTC commanding officer and 2013 NAS Pensacola NMCRS chairman, said the importance of donating to the NMCRS cannot be understated. “The NMCRS has been a linchpin in Sailors’ and Marines’ lives for more

than a century,” said Norton. “Virtually all service members have at one time or another found themselves in a time of financial need or crisis, and the NMCRS has always offered assistance through grants and loans. Donating to a cause which could one day benefit you is something I encourage everyone to think about.” Rear Adm. Don Quinn, commander, Naval Education and Training Command, was guest speaker at the breakfast, and told the area leaders that the relief society is an important tool in their leadership toolkit. “As leaders we have to

More completion options available for SAPR-F command training By Ed Barker NETC PAO

The Chief of Naval Personnel announced Feb. 14 that additional options are available for command training teams unable to attend the Face-to-Face (F2F) Sexual Assault Prevention and Response – Fleet (SAPR-F) Preparation Training previously provided by Master Mobile Training Teams (MMTTs). The SAPR-F training is the latest event in the Navy’s continuum of Sexual Assault Prevention Training. It is a critical component of the Navy’s aggressive efforts to

prevent sexual assaults and promote a culture of respect and professionalism within the force. “Our 20 SAPR-F MMTTs were able to successfully deploy around the globe and deliver more than 700 F2F training sessions to command mid-level leadership teams,” said Capt. William Marvel, chief of staff for the SAPR Task Force. “For commands whose operational commitments prevented attendance at F2F MMTT training

sessions, there are still several options available to qualify command training teams and complete SAPR-F training by the deadline of March 31.” Command training teams may complete S A P R - F Preparation Training by attending a D e f e n s e Connect Online (DCO)/ Teleconference SAPR-F preparation training session, available until March 15. Commands may register online by visiting:

https://esams. cnic.navy. mil/ esams_gen_2/ loginesams.aspx. Commands unable to complete a DCO/Teleconference training session may qualify their own training teams with the approval of their immediate superior in command (ISIC). This may be accomplished by viewing the recorded MMTT-led training session on the SAPR-F supporting materials DVD, which was shipped in November 2012 with the “SAPR-F: Take the Helm” DVD. Commands that did not receive the training

NHP conducts ASF academy Story, photo by MC1 James Stenberg NHP PAO

On Feb. 15, 13 Sailors graduated from Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP) first Auxiliary Security Force (ASF) academy. ASF personnel are active-duty service members that augment base security personnel during contingencies, natural disasters, civil disturbances, exercises and special events that require heightened levels of security. In the past, NHP has sent ASF candidates to Naval Air Station Pensacola. With the addition of personnel qualified to teach the course, NHP’s Security Department was able to coordinate and conduct its own ASF academy. During the course, students were taught multiple facets of anti-terrorism and law enforcement practices and got exposure to non-lethal weapons, firearms, rules and regulations, tactics, use of force and military jurisdiction. “During our academy, the candidates go through a twoweek course training them on the basic knowledge of law enforcement and anti-terrorism force

The instructors are very knowledgeable and the people at NASP are very friendly – that’s a good quality.” The Navy started the AIT/P course in 2009, offering three classes a year. “The purpose behind the program is to match a military’s available resources with its risks,” said program creator and instructor Abbate. Lt. Jan Pahl, a helicopter pilot from Germany, praised the program for its wide horizon on security, noting “there are a lot of tools that might be implemented in Germany to increase our force protection.” NETSAFA is the U.S. Navy’s agent for international education and training.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher W. Plummer Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White 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,

Even though the training revolves around force protection measures, ASF can be utilized for multiple situations. “During a natural disaster such as a hurricane (in the recovery phase), there might be a large number of folks trying to access the hospital to get help, which could easily inundate our staff and create unsafe conditions,” said Capt. Maureen Padden, commanding officer, Naval Hospital Pensacola. “Having these additional folks can help bolster our ability to maintain a safe environment.” One of the most unique aspects of ASF is that it’s a completely volunteer duty. Any member of the command can request to go ASF, but being a part of the ASF does not excuse anyone from the normal jobs. “Our ASF personnel all have day jobs doing other duties. They come from any rating that works in the hospital, not just corpsman. They volunteer to learn a collateral duty that is both challenging and rewarding. They don’t get extra pay, but they do get my respect and admiration for stepping up to serve the Navy’s needs,” said Padden.

the NMCRS.” In addition to the interest-free loans and grants, the NMCRS offers assistance in times of financial need, scholarships and interest-free loans for education, financial counseling, Budget for Baby Workshops, thrift shops and visiting nurse services. Torrusio said that each individual command aboard NAS Pensacola, as well as those at Whiting Field and Corry Station, will each have a designated active duty fund drive representative. Posters detailing these representatives’ contact information are in commands throughout the bases, and individuals interested in volunteering or donating to this effort are encouraged to contact their command representatives.

Naval aviation’s future: A capable, affordable force Vice Adm. David Buss Commander, Naval Air Forces

Like most Americans I’m watching the ongoing national fiscal debates in Washington with great interest and a good deal of trepidation. It’s my job to ensure that we man, train and equip a naval aviation force that is ready to fly, fight and win whenever and wherever our forward military commanders around the world need that capability. It’s also my role to put in place the policies that will ensure that naval aviation endures as a vital and relevant part of our Navy and the broader national security framework. Working with other leaders in the community, we developed a vision for naval aviation that will help us ensure a whole, capable and affordable force. That vision, though still important, is in jeopardy due to the across-the-board nature of looming cuts resulting from the potential of a full year continuing resolution and sequestration. The Chief of Naval Operations has given us directions to act now in the face of these pending cuts. As we make choices of where and how to cut in the limited way we’re able in this circumstance, it’s important to note that all of our processes are interconnected. Once we begin pulling levers to move the big machine, there will be impacts across the entirety of naval aviation. Some of these impacts

Vice Adm. Buss

may not be immediately apparent today, but they will impact our future in the near and far term, and may not be e a s i l y

reversed. I understand that in almost any conceivable circumstance there will be fewer resources available. This reality has informed our vision and is driving how naval aviation must organize, man, train and equip as a whole to successfully perform its missions today and in the future. Achieving combat effectiveness – which is what we are fundamentally all about – requires the judicious management of manpower, supplies and training dollars to safely and effectively operate Navy and Marine Corps aircraft to be ready for whatever the nation asks of us, whenever we are asked. Naval aviation has embraced affordability, which I see as generally driven by two elements – the acquisition cost to develop and buy our platforms, and the operating and sustainment costs to bring the full throw weight of our aviation force to bear over their entire service life. The Navy is in transition to a new, more capable platform in nearly every aircraft community today. We must continue

these transitions if we are to meet the evolving security threats of tomorrow. We are completing our strike-fighter transition into the FA-18E/F Super Hornet. We are well into transition with our electronic attack community out of the older EA-6B Prowler and into the extraordinarily capable EA18G Growler. We are also well into our rotary wing transition into the lethal multi-mission MH-60R and MH-60S Knighthawks, programs that, by the way, saved taxpayers (you and me) billions of dollars through multi-year procurement strategies. Our legacy P3C Orion squadrons have begun transition into the remarkable P-8A Poseidon, an aircraft based on the concept of leveraging a reliable, alreadyproven low-cost platform that carries an array of sensors, networks and weapons designed to operate in an “open architecture” warfighting environment. Another way in which we’re trying to make our Navy’s aviation force more affordable for the future is by reducing the number of types, models and series of aircraft within the carrier strike group. For example, in 2005 a carrier strike group may have deployed with as many as 10 different models of aircraft which, collectively, required eight different engine types, each with their own maintenance and supply support requirements. In our new vision, a carrier strike group in

2025 would deploy with as few as five different models of aircraft with five engine types, significantly reducing our “lifecycle” costs to own and operate those Navy aircraft. Think about it … fewer range of parts that we need, with more commonality, and a higher probability of finding the part you’re looking for on the shelf when you need it. There’s more to affordability than simply designing and buying better aircraft, though. The cost to operate our present and future platforms – combined with advanced capabilities that are rapidly exceeding the capabilities of our current training ranges – demands that within naval aviation we become much more innovative in combining live, virtual and constructive training. Flight time in the cockpit or crew station will always matter for our naval aviators, but our potential adversaries’ capabilities are evolving to the point where much of our most realistic training in the future may be done in a high-fidelity simulator, linked with an array of other simulators in high-tech, high-threat environment that can’t be replicated anywhere else. And flight hours are likely to become more scarce under budget cuts. Our live training ranges today may not provide the level of hi-end training we need to be able to fully practice our warfighting skills. We are at the cusp of innovative thought and action

in determining the right mix of live, virtual and constructive training for our future … and bright young aviation minds are leading the charge here. I’ve provided just a few examples of ways naval aviation is doing all we can to deliver value to the American people even in these austere times. And although we place affordability at the heart of everything we do, we will never lose sight of our true mission: providing combat ready aviation forces forward where, and when, they are needed most … today, tomorrow and in the future. That mission may be harder to achieve moving forward but we will do everything we can to achieve it. “Fly, Fight, Win!” Air Boss sends.

NASWF officer assists in scuba rescue By Ens.Robert Luers NASWF PAO

A typical scuba certification training session nearly turned tragic for the dive master teaching a course Jan. 14, and only the exacting training and decisive action of a Training Air Wing Five officer changed a likely fatality into a happy ending. Lt. Cmdr. John Cooke, TraWing-5 aeromedical safety officer, was enjoying a sunny day off the coast of Fort Pickens at Gulf Islands National Seashore, watching his 10-yearold daughter, Rachel, take the first of her four qualification dives for her junior scuba certification. Little did he know that his years of experience and knowledge of the human body would be soon be critically needed. The qualification dive consisted of an instructor – an Army staff sergeant and qualified dive master and Special Forces combat dive medic – two male students and Rachel. The dive was to consist of a routine 30-foot descent and ascent below the surface of the 60 degree state park aquatic preserve. After the instructor and students plunged into the depth below and reached the bottom, one of the male students panicked and ulti-

mately lost control. “In his irrational state, he had forgotten his training and was trying to conduct an emergency ascent from 30 feet, which would have exploded his lungs and no doubt would have killed him,” Cooke said. The dive master grappled with the flailing student and resupplied him with oxygen until they surfaced. Once topside, the dive master yelled, “Get him out of the water.” Unaware of what had transpired below the water, the onlookers assisted as directed. The staff sergeant then retreated to the depths to retrieve the remaining students. After four separate dives in as many minutes, he was unable to locate the two missing students due to poor visibility and a stronger than expected current. Deciding he needed to take action, Cooke then took a set of snorkel, mask and fins from one of the men and dove in toward a stream of bubbles. After three unsuccessful attempts, Cooke then donned the man’s scuba gear and headed back down. The dive instructor eventually found the second male diver and Rachel on his ninth dive. Remarkably, the submerged students were doing underwater dive drills to pass time and were oblivious to the events that had

unfolded around them. Once on shore, the attention of the bystanders was focused on the man that had lost control. “I was more worried about the instructor,” Cooke said. The staff sergeant began feeling light headed and attributed it to the extreme workout he had just endured. Within minutes, however, he developed a strong headache and was losing his balance. “He wanted to drive to the hospital. Others wanted to dial 911. But the nearest fire department was more than 30 minutes away and the hospital was certainly a lot farther,” Cooke said. During the discussion of what to do next, Cooke’s friend, a United States Coast Guard commander, arrived with a boat which would reduce transport time by at least an hour. During the boat ride, Cooke called the officer in charge of Naval Survival Training Institute and scheduled an emergency visit to the hyperbaric chamber, an enclosed unit that assists in the recovery of decompression sickness, on NAS Pensacola. An ambulance and police arrived at the USCG station within minutes of their arrival. Upon arrival, the EMTs began asking questions from their standard operating procedures regarding symptoms of the dive

emergency. The dive master was experiencing a right side headache, spinning vision and disorientation. The protocol of the dive emergency required the EMTs to transport the dive master to a local hospital, which had no chamber facility and was at least a 30-minute ride. At this point, Cooke stepped forward and introduced himself. He refused to release control of the scene to the EMTs as he felt the situation had become too time sensitive. “If immediate action to the chamber would not have been made, the situation no doubt would have ended in death,” he said. Cooke called NSTI and reported that he and the diver were inbound. He requested transportation from the EMTs or police at the site. Within minutes they were at the chamber with the emergency hyperbaric chamber team standing by. The initial neurological assessments showed the victim suffered from an arterial gas embolism and that his conditions were worsening. The dive medical officer, a Navy captain, directed that the service member be “squeezed.” At a chamber depth of 30 feet, the diver’s disorientation eased and his headache decreased from a 4 to a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10. By 55 feet, all signs and symptoms

were resolved. He stayed on 100 percent oxygen for four hours and was released later. Cooke’s decisiveness and composure led to a happy outcome. At the end of the traumatic day, though, there were a lot of factors that aligned to help prevent permanent injury or death: the instructor using enriched air, the fact that he was a military member and thus able to be treated on base, Cooke’s knowledge of the signs and symptoms of diving emergencies, his friend having a boat available to reduce the transport time, proceeding directly to the chamber, and the chamber crew’s availability to treat. Recreational off-duty mishaps cause a huge number of injuries each year for military personnel. This makes it a regular training issue for managing risk, and in typical military fashion, the staff sergeant used the incident as a training lesson. “I never thought that I would get an injury at Fort Pickens, but due to that experience, I have changed some of my safety protocols and can now vouch for the importance of adhering to the weekend safety briefs,” he said following the event. And just a few weeks later, he finished Rachel’s qualification process.

NASWF personnel recognized by Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce From NASWF PAO

The Santa Rosa County Chamber of Commerce honored two of Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s finest during their annual leadership dinner recently. The black tie affair recognized the major contributors in the Santa Rosa County business and volunteer community. In front of an audience filled with political leaders, business owners, and local organizers, Kristal Kelley, the manager of the NAS Whiting Field Pen Air Federal Credit Union branch office, and Lori Aprilliano, the base public affairs officer, received well-deserved awards along with 10 other honorees during the evening’s festivities. Tracy Allen, the interim president for the chamber of commerce, selected Kelley to receive the President’s Award

for outstanding service through an event or project. Kelley’s recognition stemmed from her “tireless efforts” in coordinating the annual Military Appreciation Picnic at NAS Whiting Field. The picnic was the best attended in the history of the event with more door prizes, more venders and more activities than any previous military appreciation event. Aprilliano received the Fred Hunter “Spirit of Santa Rosa” award for long term contributions to the chamber and the county. Through her position in the public affairs office, she has consistently worked to improve relations between the community and the base. Working far beyond the scope of the minimum expected of base support, Aprilliano arranged base tours for countless community groups including the chamber of commerce, NJROTC units, Boy Scout

NASWF PAO Lori Aprilliano, left and NASWF Pen Air FCU Manager Kristal Kelley at the awards banquet.

troops, elementary school classes, Leadership Santa Rosa, and more. With her, it was never a question of whether to support the local community, but how much she and the base could do to accommodate the request.

Kelley’s award included a video presentation by interim president Allen touting her efforts in planning the picnic. Maintaining the light-hearted spirit of the evening, he even put in a slight “dig” about her short trip to the hospital for dehydration during the event. “My criteria for this award are that the recipient must go above and beyond sacrificing themselves (even to the point of heat exhaustion and dehydration in this case) for the sake of the event. You can’t let little things like trips to the hospital stand in the way of a successful event, the show must go on,” he joked, before emphasizing the depth of Kelley’s dedication to the project. “This individual’s sacrifices were only reflective of her passion to recognize and show appreciation for those who serve this country so valiantly and sometimes give the ultimate sacrifice.”

MEAD NIGHTINGALE ROOSEVELT ROSS STOWE

By Elizabeth Dickason Naval History and Heritage Command

Eighty-five-year-old Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper, who dedicated her life to the Navy, passed away Jan. 1, 1992. As a pioneer computer programmer and coinventor of COBOL (Common Business Oriented Language), she was known as the Grand Lady of Software, Amazing Grace and Grandma COBOL. She’ll be remembered for her now famous sayings, one of which is “It’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission.” Taught by her father at an early age to go after what she wanted, her life consisted of one success after another, including the significant contributions she made to the computer age and the Navy. Hopper’s diligence and hard work paid off when in 1928 at the age of 22 she was graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Vassar College. She then attended Yale University, where she received a master’s degree in mathematics and physics in 1930 and a doctorate degree in mathematics in 1934. Hopper began teaching mathematics at Vassar in 1931, where her first year’s salary was $800. She stayed there until she

joined the United States Naval Reserve in December 1943. Upon graduation, she was commissioned a lieutenant (junior grade) and ordered to the Bureau of Ordnance Computation Project at Harvard University. There she became the first programmer on the Navy’s Mark I computer, the mechanical miracle of its day. Hopper’s love of gadgets caused her to immediately fall for the biggest gadget she’d ever seen, the 51foot-long mound of bulky relays, switches and vacuum tubes called the Mark I. This miracle of modern science could store 72 words and perform three additions every second. In 1946, Hopper was released from active duty and joined the Harvard Faculty at the Computation Laboratory, where her work continued on the Mark II and Mark III computers for the Navy. In 1949, she joined the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation, later called Sperry Rand, where she designed the first commercial largescale electronic computer called the UNIVAC I. She changed the lives of everyone in the computer industry by developing the Bomarc system, later called COBOL (commonbusiness-oriented language). COBOL made it

possible for computers to respond to words rather than numbers. She’s also credited with coining the term “bug” when she traced an error in the Mark II to a moth trapped in a relay. The bug was carefully removed and taped to a daily log book. Since then, whenever a computer has a problem, it’s referred to as a bug. Hopper retired from the Naval Reserve with the rank of commander at the end of 1966. She was recalled to active duty in August 1967 for a sixmonth assignment at the request of Norman Ream, then special assistant to the Secretary of the Navy for automatic data processing. After the six months were up, her orders were changed to say her services would be needed indefinitely. She was promoted to captain in 1973 by Adm. Elmo Zumwalt Jr., Chief of Naval Operations. And in 1977, she was appointed special adviser to Commander, Naval Data Automation Command (NavDac), where she stayed until she retired. At the age of 76, she was promoted to commodore by special presidential appointment. Her rank was elevated to rear admiral in November 1985, making her one of few women admirals in the history of the Navy.

CPPD performance award winners set bar high for customer service By Susan Henson Center for Personal and Professional Development Public Affairs

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) recognized its outstanding Navy College Offices, learning sites and reserve unit of 2012, command leadership said recently. The CPPD Performance Quality Award Winners for Fiscal Year 2012 were the CPPD Learning Sites in NAS Pensacola Corry Station and King’s Bay, Ga.; Navy College Offices in Bahrain; Naples, Italy; and Coronado, Calif; and the entire CPPD Reserve Unit. “I’m pleased to recognize such an outstanding group of people dedicated to providing the best possible support for Sailors’ personal and professional development,” said Capt. John Newcomer, CPPD’s commanding officer. “We’re a small yet global command, and the performance of this year’s winners shows the high level of commitment CPPD’s team members have to helping develop Sailors who think critically, act responsibly and lead proactively – to make the best possible decisions on and off duty.” The 2012 Performance Quality Award winners for

CPPD’s Learning Sites and reserve units also accomplished impressive metrics that supported the command’s mission to develop and deliver education and training opportunities that build personal, professional and leadership competencies to achieve fleet readiness. Learning Site Corry Station won the large learning site category for posting a 104 percent instructor utilization rate and 100 percent completion of all Personal and Professional Development Assist Team (PPDAT) visits that resulted in a 71.5 percent seat utilization rate of CPPD courses at that site. Nearly 80 percent of the site’s instructors qualified to deliver more than one course of instruction in FY-12, and 44 percent of instructors completed requirements for their Master Training Specialist (MTS) qualification. Learning Site Kings Bay won the small learning site category by posting similarly impressive statistics. This team had a 90 percent instructor utilization rate, and a 141 percent PPDAT completion rate resulting in a 70 percent seat utilization rate. More than 90 percent of instructors cross-qualified to deliver more than one course, and 47 percent of Kings Bay instructors completed their MTS requirements. Although usually awarded to

a single reserve unit, the entire CPPD Reserve Unit was awarded for its team effort in FY-12 that resulted in the unit’s most productive year in its history, according to Newcomer. The reserve unit accounted for 25 percent of the overall CPPD mission by delivering almost 500 courses and graduating more than 9,000 Sailors while simultaneously reducing the command’s travel costs. Navy College Office (NCO) Bahrain, which won in the small NCO staff category, provides educational outreach to the Naval Forces Central Command area of responsibility. NCO Bahrain conducted 150 briefings for more than 5,000 customers at 92 tenant commands, including Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Oman, Qatar, Isa Air Base and Yemen. Through combined efforts and coordination across regions, the office had a 98 percent enrollment completion rate, with more than 268 college graduates. “This is an amazing level of customer service, especially considering the office staff consisted of one person for most of 2012,” said Dr. Mary Redd-

Clary, director of the Voluntary Education program, which is administered by CPPD. Navy College Office Naples, which won in the medium NCO staff category, provides educational outreach to the local Naples area and Africa Command. The Naples team also provided technical guidance to the education services officer aboard the Sixth Fleet flagship USS Mount Whitney (LLC/JCC 20) in the preparation of education plans for ships using Navy College Program for Afloat College Education (NCPACE). The education plans were instrumental in the enrollment of more than 80 Sailors, 62 of whom received college degrees. As the European Regional Defense Language Testing Center, NCO Naples also logged 42 percent of Defense Language Proficiency Tests (DLPTs) administered in Europe and South West Asia. Navy College Office Coronado, which took the NCO large staff category, provides educational outreach to the Coronado area and Point Loma. The team at this NCO distinguished itself by recording

more than 12,180 combined completions and enrollments, which produced 252 college graduates. It also provided education services to more than 49,000 Navy personnel, hosted six education fairs, and coordinated more than 140 NCPACE courses for deployed Sailors. NCO Coronado also organized on-site instructor-led classes and facilitated outreach to more than 49 tenant commands. “The educational professionals at all 35 NCOs give everything they have to helping Sailors find avenues to pursue their life-long education goals, which equips them with strong analytical skills and the ability to make informed decisions,” said Redd-Clary. “For the Voluntary Education team, we are strongly committed to helping every Sailor we can, which is well demonstrated by the impressive accomplishments of these award winners.” For more information about the Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD), visit: https://www. netc.navy.mil/centers/cppd/.
