Navy announces FY16 CNO Environmental Award winners By Chief of Naval Operations Energy and Environmental Readiness Division Public Affairs

Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Fleet Readiness and Logistics (N4), Vice Adm. Phil Cullom, announced 30 winners of the fiscal year 2016 Chief of Naval Operations Environmental Awards competition in a naval message released March 15. NAS Pensacola was a winner in the cultural resource management category, and the base’s Cultural Resources Manager, Carrie A. Williams, was a cultural resources management individual winner. Williams was excited with what the dual CNO recognition means for the base. “This is an incredible win for NAS Pensacola,” she said. “With historic occupation dating back to the 17th century, NAS Pensacola holds the stories of colonization by the Spanish, British and French, followed by U.S. naval and aeronautical missions. These are stories of struggle, triumph, military advancement; Sailors, aviators and families that are represented by archaeological sites and historic structures. “It is a team effort, and I am very fortunate to be able to work with such a great group. I am so thrilled that NAS Pensacola has been recognized for our stewardship efforts to protect our cultural resources and ensure stewardship for posterity.” The CNO Environmental Awards honor exceptional achievements in environmental stewardship among nominated ships, installations, and individuals on an annual basis. The FY16 winners, listed alphabetically within each category include:

IWTC Corry Station offers new AN/SLQ-32(V)6 course Story, photo by MC2 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

The pilot for a new course on the AN/SLQ-32(V)6 electronic warfare (EW) system wrapped up at Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station, March 13. The course provides cryptologic technician technical students, both new accession Sailors and seasoned fleet returnees, with the fundamental knowledge and training necessary to operate the latest version of the AN/SLQ-32. The integrated shipboard combat system performs the mission of early detection, signal analysis, threat warning and protection from antiship missiles. “This module represents a significant change from previous versions,” said CTT1 Scott Searcy, an instructor for the course. “Our new accession technicians will typically be fulfilling more operational roles than senior Sailors, so it’s important to balance the classes with more junior students.”

The AN/SLQ-32(V)6 provides a full suite of EW capabilities that can be managed and controlled manually from a console or semimanually or automatically by the host combat management system. “We’re looking forward to teaching students about it,” said Searcy. “As technology continues to move forward, we need to make sure our technicians have the most up-to-date skill sets for operating

advanced equipment.” The class covers computer networking skills and the theory and function of the AN/SLQ-32(V)6 components. At the end of the course, students use the skills they learn to repair damages to the system during a troubleshooting exercise. “This was a challenging course on a very complicated system,” said CTT1 Joshua Chapman, a

student assigned to the guidedmissile destroyer USS Ross (DDG 71). “This new module opens up a whole new world of warfighting capabilities. It’s the future of EW, and I’m glad to be a part of it.” For more news from the Center for Information Warfare Training, visit http://www. navy. mil/ local/ cid/, http://www. facebook. com/NavyCIWT, or http://www. twitter. com/ NavyCIWT.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently announced it now provides eligibility determinations for interment in a VA national cemetery prior to the time of need. Through the Pre-Need Determination of Eligibility Program, upon request, individuals can learn if they are elfor burial or igible memorialization in a VA national cemetery. “MyVA is about looking at VA from the veterans’ perspective, and then doing everything we can to make the veteran experience effective and seamless,” said Secretary of

Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald. “This new program reaffirms our commitment to providing a lifetime of benefits and services for veterans and their families.” Interested individuals may submit VA Form 40-10007, Application for Pre-Need Determination of Eligibility for Burial in a VA National Cemetery, and supporting documentation, such as a DD Form 214, if readily available, to the VA National Cemetery Scheduling Office by: toll-free fax at 1(855) 840-8299; e-mail to Eligibility.PreNeed@va.gov; or mail to the National Cemetery Scheduling Office, P.O. Box 510543, St. Louis, MO 63151. VA will review applications

and provide written notice of its determination of eligibility. VA will save determinations and supporting documentation in an electronic information system to expedite burial arrangements at the time of need.

Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

Sometimes a little sympathy is the right treatment SBy Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

T

railing tissues behind, I burst through the base clinic doors five minutes past my appointment time.

“Sorry, I’m late,” I croaked raspily to the corpsman in blueberries at the family practice desk. He directed me to the waiting area. Fishing another crumpled tissue from my pocket, I nestled in to read juicy gossip about “The Bachelor” from a dog-eared waiting room copy of US magazine, just as someone bellowed “Lisa Molinari” from behind me. Dang. With my legs dangling like a child from the papered examining table, I waited patiently for the doctor’s arrival, mulling over the possible outcomes. “With this terrible cough, sore throat, and congestion, it must be very serious. One listen to my chest and surely, she will prescribe antibiotics and steroid treatments. Hmm … she might very well diagnose pneumonia and order me to spend a week in the hospital under an oxygen tent, so I had better think of

someone who could stop by to walk the dog,” I thought. As I envisioned myself securely ensconced in sterile plastic while friends and family visited with chocolate milkshakes, the doctor entered the room in a hurried swish. “Hello, Mrs. Molinari. What brings you in today?” I am one of those people who feel that all stories should be told properly. Even the tiniest detail can be essential in painting the right picture, conveying the correct tone, and maintaining complete accuracy. “Well, doc, it all started last Monday,” I began. I told her all about how my husband Francis has been gone, how tired I have been lately, that I may have picked something up at our daughter’s school which is a veritable petri dish by the way, that my to do list is a mile long, etcetera, etcetera. Much to my surprise, the doctor didn’t seem to be lis-

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. tening. As I was detailing the issues I had been having with my mini-van’s steering, she asked with her back to me, “What color is your sputum?” Ahem. Answering that

question requires admitting to shamelessly inspecting the unmentionable globs I had been spitting into the sink or blowing into tissues. Everyone has done it, but can’t the doctor just take my word for it that I am very sick? Assuming she needed another detailed explanation, I went on, “Well, let’s see, I blew my nose in church on Sunday, and wasn’t able to take a look until I got home, and …” Halfway through explaining a particular shade of olive green, the doctor turned around and came at me with a reflex hammer, repeatedly rapping at my face with the pointed end. “Does this hurt?” she asked between blows. For a split second, I pondered how one might answer such a stupid question. “Hell yes!” was just too obvious, and asking “I don’t know, does this hurt?” and kicking her in the shin seemed too hostile, so I went for, “Is the Pope a Catholic?” By now, I could tell that this doctor operated with the fundamental belief that all patients are hypochondriacs, wimps and liars with nothing better to do than to spend

hours in base clinics feigning illnesses just so they can wait again in the pharmacy for antibiotics they don’t need, which will eventually result in the spread of antibiotic-resistant “super-bugs” that will soon infect and destroy all of mankind. As I began to snort and suck at the back of my throat in an attempt to bring up or down some kind of concrete proof to make my case, the doctor said, “Your chest sounds clear, so I’ll treat you for viral bronchitis. Pump the fluids and Mucinex.” And she was gone in a swish. I wondered if she would have questioned her Hippocratic oath when she discovered that I had to be airlifted to the ER for intravenous antibiotics later that night. No such luck. Five days later, the raspiness in my voice, the sore throat, the barking cough and the technicolor phlegm had all but disappeared. I had to admit, the doc was right. Still, base clinic doctors should realize that, sometimes, the proper treatment for military spouses who are alone and sick is simply a little sympathy. Chocolate milkshakes wouldn’t hurt either.

#PeopleMatter: ‘Yeomanettes’ paved the way for women of all ratings today By YN1 Silvia Raya and YN2 Waltesia Crudup Chief of Naval Personnel

I

n order to fill severe clerical shortages caused by World War I, the U.S. Navy approved the enlistment of women in 1917. The Naval Reserve Act of 1916 made no specific gender requirements for yeomen, enlisted personnel who fulfill administrative and clerical duties. So either by deliberate omission or accident, the act opened the opportunity to enlist women a century ago. One of the first through the door on March 17, 1917, was Loretta Perfectus Walsh, who became the first active-duty female in the Navy who wasn’t a nurse. Four days later, March 21, 1917, she was the first female to be named a chief petty officer. On April 6, 1917, Congress approved President Woodrow Wilson’s request to declare war against Germany. The newly-enlisted Sailors were given the rating yeoman

(F), with the “F” designating female. More popularly referred to as “yeomanettes,” the majority worked in clerical positions, but they also served as translators, draftsmen, fingerprint experts, ship camouflage designers and recruiting agents. Nearly 600 yeomen (F) were on duty by the end of April 1917, a number that had grown to more than 11,000 by December 1918, shortly after the Armistice. After the war, many “yeomanettes” continued in their positions during the post-war naval reductions. By the end

of July 1919, there were just less than 4,000 left in service, and all were released from active duty to return to their more traditional roles before the war. Yeomen (F) continued on inactive reserve status, receiving modest retainer pay, until the end of their four-year enlistments, at which point all

women except Navy nurses disappeared from the uniformed Navy until 1942. Many honorably discharged yeomen (F) were appointed to Civil Service positions in the same navy yards and stations where they had served in wartime. Entitled to veterans’ preference for government employment,

they provided a strong female presence in the Navy’s civilian staff through the decades after World War I. Walsh served all four years of her enlistment, getting out in 1919. After contracting the flu in 1918, she developed tuberculosis. Walsh died six years after leaving the Navy, Aug. 6, 1925, at the age of 29.

Honoring the proud women who serve in the U.S. Navy By John R. Desselle Naval History and Heritage Command

This month, the Navy joins the nation in celebration of Women’s History Month, and to their commemorate proud and dedicated service in the U.S. Navy. In 1908, women officially began serving as nurses in the Navy. Yeomanettes or yeomen were added during World War I. During World War II, Congress established the Navy’s Women’s Reserve Program, or WAVES. Today, women serve in every rank from seaman to admiral and in every job from naval aviator to deep-sea diver. Meet some of the outstanding, trailblazing women to wear the Navy uniform. The Sacred Twenty were a group of exclusively female nurses who, during World War I, were the first female members

to ever formally serve in the U.S. Navy representing the Nurse Corps. They were referred to as hospital stewards and hospital apprentices. By the end of World War I the number of women in the U.S. Navy had escalated to 1,386. Harriet Ida Pickens and Ens. Frances Wills became the first African-

Mass. By the time World War II ended on Sept. 2, 1945, Pickens and Wills were the only two black female officers among the Navy’s 86,000 WAVES. Dr. Grace Murray Hopper was one of the first programmers of the Harvard Mark I computer. In 1944, she invented the first compiler

American female officers in the WAVES in November 1944. They graduated from the Naval Reserve Midshipmen’s School (Women’s Reserve) at Northampton,

for a computer programming language and was one of those who promoted the idea of machine-independent programming languages which led to the develop-

ment of “Common Business Oriented Language” (COBOL), one of the first high-level programming languages. Upon her retirement from the Navy in 1986, with the rank of rear admiral, she immediately became a senior consultant to Digital Equipment Corporation, and remained there several years, working well into her eighties. Wendy B. Lawrence, pictured in 2003, was a crew member on four space shuttle flights between 1995 and 2005, logging more than 1,225 hours in space. Her spaceflight experience includes: STS-67 Endeavour (March 2-18, 1995, STS-86 Atlantis (Sept. 25-Oct. 6, 1997), STS-91 Discovery (June 2-12, 1998) and STS-114 Discovery (July 26-Aug. 9, 2005). She was awarded the Defense Superior Service Medal, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, the NASA Space

Chicago Bulls continue partnership with Navy By Scott A. Thornbloom Naval Service Training Command Public Affairs

C

HICAGO (NNS) – For an eighth consecutive year, the NBA’s Chicago Bulls are continuing a partnership with the United States Navy by sponsoring a recruit division at Recruit Training Command (RTC), the Navy’s only boot camp, onboard Naval Station Great Lakes. Eighty-four Chicago, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan young men enlisted in the Navy March 14 at the Bulls practice facility – The Advocate Center in Chicago. The enlistment ceremony was coordinated by Navy Recruiting District (NRD) Chicago and held in front of officials from the Bulls, NRD, RTC, and more than 150 parents and family members. “Recruit Training Command truly values our relationship with the Chicago Bulls organization,” said Capt. Michael Garrick, commanding officer of RTC, who issued the oath of enlistment and swore in the 84 new recruits on the Bulls hardwood practice floor. “Their support for these recruits reflects the very important bond between the nation and the United States Navy. We deeply appreciate the Bulls stalwart support of our naval service.” The swearing-in event was organized by NRD Chicago, which recruited the young men to be part of the Bulls Recruit Division. Cmdr. Justin Beeler, commander of NRD, welcomed the family members, introduced Garrick as the enlisting officer, and thanked the Bulls organiza-

tion. “To be able to showcase the young men that have stood up and said ‘I’ll serve’ is a wonderful opportunity for us,” said Beeler. “It’s great that the Bulls

are willing to sponsor a recruit division each year, and when I talk to the recruits again after they have graduated from boot camp, each new Sailor usually says how much they loved having the distinction of being a member of the Bulls Division and being sponsored by the Bulls. It sets them apart from the other divisions at RTC.” Current Bull’s Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, John Paxson, welcomed the recruits to the Advocate Center and told them how proud the organization is to sponsor a recruit division each year, and how

important it was for the Bulls to recognize and support the new recruits and all members of the military yesterday and today. “For the organization, in general, the fact we associate with the Navy and the young men and women who enlist is exceptional,” said Paxson, who played on three of the Bulls championship teams in the 1990s. Paxson is no stranger to supporting the military as he has a son who is a staff sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. Currently, the younger Paxson serves as a drill instructor at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C. “So much of our country’s pride is built around those who serve, and any indication by the players and members of this organization to see what these young people commit to is special,” he said. “For me personally, having a son in the military, being able to sponsor a recruit division is incredibly meaningful.” Paxson met with the recruits before the swearing-in ceremony, and told them about his son and the respect he has for all branches of the military and its service members.

“I have a fondness for the enlisted man and woman,” he continued. “They’re the ones that go through the tough stuff, and they’re the ones that start at the bottom and really earn their way up. I don’t know any of these young people we see today, but they will all have a special place in my heart because I know what they’re embarking on.” That sentiment was echoed and returned by all the recruits who were sworn in at the Bulls practice facility. “This is pretty awesome to be part of the Bulls Recruit Division,” said Keylan Stocker of Gurnee, Ill. “It’s great the Bulls want to support us, and it’s great

to enlist in the place where players I watch and cheer for practice. Being a member of the Bulls Division is special because we are part of a select few – a brotherhood – and not a lot of Sailors can say they’ve done that.” Fellow recruit Seth Harris of Buffalo Grove, Ill., said the partnership will motivate him to do well in the Bulls Division. “I think this is a great opportunity to be part of this particular division,” said Harris. “It’s almost like a great gift to be able to come down here and enlist before shipping out to boot

Veranda

camp. This ceremony shows that the Bulls organization not only cares about the armed forces, but they respect what we do to help protect this country.” Basic training for the Chicago Bulls Division and all recruits lasts eight weeks at RTC. As the recruits train, they will display a Bulls Division flag wherever they go. RTC Great Lakes is the Navy’s only basic training location, and is known as the “Quarterdeck of the Navy.” Today, more than 30,000 recruits graduate annually from RTC and begin their Navy careers.

Aperauch to assume the reins of VT-2 By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Officer

C

oast Guard Cmdr. Joseph McGilley will turn over command of Training Squadron Two (VT-2) to Navy Cmdr. Zachariah Aperauch during a change of command ceremony today, March 24, at 10 a.m. in the Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) North Field hangar. Retired Coast U.S. Coast Guard Capt. William D. Cameron will serve as the guest speaker for the time-honored tradition that allows for the assembled crew, staff, friends and guests to welcome in the new commander while also recognizing the achievements of the outgoing leader. McGilley’s inspirational leadership led VT-2 to fly more than 30,000 flight hours in the completion of more than 18,800 sorties. This dedication to training enabled the squadron to complete 350 student aviators through the primary flight train-

ing syllabus during his command tour. His unwavering commitment to professionalism and instruction were evidenced in the unit’s selection for the Chief of Naval Air Training’s 2014 Training Excellence Award, the 2015 Commander Theodore G. Ellyson Aviator Production Excellence Award, and a grade of “outstanding” on the 2016 Chief of Naval Air Training flight instructor standardization inspection. Commanding VT-2 was the latest stop on a 20-year military aviation career that began in March 1997 in Pensacola and

Milton with his primary flight training with VT-2. He “winged” as a helicopter pilot from Helicopter Training Squadron Eight before being stationed in Clearwater, Fla., where he flew the HH-60J Jayhawk helicopter. Since then, he has served tours at Coast Guard Stations in San Diego, Calif.; Elizabeth City, N.C.; Astoria, Ore.; and the USCG Office of Aeronautical Engineering. McGilley also completed advanced education at Purdue University’s graduate school of aeronautical and astronautical engineering. Aperauch stands ready to take

command of VT-2 and will draw upon his 17 years of naval service and experience to fill the shoes of his predecessor. His career began after graduating from Old Dominion University in 1999 and earning his commission from officer candidate school in May 2000. He has served tours with the “Vanguard” of HM-14; AWSTS as a

fleet replacement squadron instructor; Joint Staff J7 division; and the USS San Antonio (LPD 17). He has also earned a master’s degree in national security and strategic studies from the Joint Forces Staff College. Coast Guard Cmdr. Mark A. Jackson will replace Aperauch as executive officer for the squadron.

NAS Whiting Field implements new motorcycle mentorship program By Jamie Link NASWF Public Affairs

The roar of the exhaust pipes from two Harley Davidson Motorcycles rev up as the pair move out for a relaxing ride. Except this pair is different – the riders consist of one experienced rider and one “newbie.” A motorcycle mentorship program at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) has been established for riders, to provide guidance and friendly advice to help mitigate safety concerns on motorcycles for new riders, enabling them to learn from experienced motorcycle riders. The Navy’s traffic safety instruction (OpNavInst 5100.12J) now requires commands to establish a mentorship program for motorcycle riders. The program aims to pair up mentors who ride the same type of motorcycles. The mission of the program is aimed towards increasing safety for the riders through mentorship, experience, conversation and practical applications. Basic rider and military sport bike rider courses are already required, and provide the basics of bike handling and risk management, but the new mentorship program provides a more in-depth resource, courtesy of experienced motorcycle riders. Stacey Eaton of NASWF’s Fire & Emergency Serv-

ices Gulf Coast is the motorcycle mentorship team leader who explained how the program is still new but is already operational. “We are in full implementation mode but still in the growing stage – for example, guiding riders on advice such as learning to ride a 500cc before moving to their first liter-rated bike,” Eaton said. “We have many ideas for the future to promote safety further and allow the members to feel like this is a great opportunity to be a part of the program.” The programs’ plans include a vision of comradery that comes with riding motorcycles that bleed into the heart of this, and we are putting together the plans for command rides, command training and voluntary off site “meet-ups,” Eaton said. The number of motorcycle riders continues to increase onboard NAS Whiting Field. Currently, the program has paired-up 100 percent of the motorcycle riders with a mentor. “I’m really glad we have a motorcycle program already in place here at Whiting Field. This is an important program to establish and I believe it will pay off in the longrun. As far as safety and motorcycle riding go, this program could save lives,” ABH1 Jeffrey Garcia said. Navywide, there have been 11 fatalities reported in fiscal year 2017 involving motorcycles, according the

Naval Safety Center as of March 2017. Ten of the 11 fatalities involved enlisted personnel under E-5 and the other fatality was an E-7. “Continue to be safe and do not ride outside of your comfort zone, and a message to non-riders; motorcycle awareness is a big issue in this area, please watch out for motorcycles. Look twice, save a life,” Eaton said In a recent article on Navy News Stand, the Department of the Navy leadership shared a message about the change to the traffic safety instruction regarding the mentorship program. “The reinvigoration of Navy and Marine Corps efforts have to (be in place) to ensure the safe use of motor vehicles and motorcycles with the expectation that senior Sailors and Marines set the example of zero tolerance for: unsafe driving, failure to comply with requirements and regulations, and drinking and driving.” For more information on Navy motorcycle safety policy and requirements, as well as personal stories, view the All Hands Magazine Online at: http://www. navy.mil/ah_online/ftrStory.asp?id=74217&issue=3&p age=1.

The Naval Branch Health Clinic is located at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP). Urgent care center hours are seven days a week from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., and the clinic is available for all TRICARE beneficiaries.

revered as a deity by ancient civilizations. From a sudden howling sand storm in Senegal heralding the coming monsoon, the winds transform over the Atlantic Ocean into a raging monster five hundred miles across. Ships are tossed on growing ocean swells, and the violent winds and torrential rains of Hurricane Lucy crash into the rainforests of the Caribbean before causing immense storm surges in the Gulf of Mexico. “Hurricane” follows meteorologists and emergency crews as they battle to predict the storm’s path, while those in harm’s way prepare for the worst. Meanwhile, NASA’s satellites and hurricane tracking aircraft capture the enormity of the storm. We see the environmental impact on coral reefs, agriculture and wildlife as the Category 4 hurricane engulfs the

region. But once the damage is cleared, the regenerative power of nature is captured as we witness the rebirth of a rainforest and the return of its hardiest creatures. “Beyond the of question where hurricanes strike, we wanted to tell the tales of the wind. To speak of winds beyond imagination. To understand the stress of waiting; the relief of the near miss. We wanted to observe the fragility and resilience of nature, to discover what the mightiest weather system on earth means to all those who live beneath its shadow,” said producers Andy Byatt, Cyril Barbançon and Jacqueline Farmer.

Why did the robot cross the road? It was programmed by the chicken. Where does a robot go on vacation? Wireland. What’s a robot’s favorite film? “Raiders of the Lost Spark.” A robot walked into a restaurant, sat down and picked up a menu. A startled waitress told the machine, “Is a person with you?

Sailor recognized with NMA Leadership Award By Enid Wilson Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

A

Sailor assigned to Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) received the Navy and Marine Corps Association (NMA) Peer Leadership Award March 9 at NETC headquarters. GSCS Donald Bellnoski, from Magnolia, Texas, was nominated by peers at his previous command, guided-missile destroyer USS Carney (DDG 64), for his exceptional leadership ability. Bellnoski was assigned as the engineering department leading chief petty officer during his five-year tour aboard Carney. As the “Top Snipe,” Bellnoski was responsible for leading and mentoring engineering department personnel in the proper operation of the engineering plant, instilling good engineering practices, and assisting the chief engineer in all matters pertaining to the department of 78 Sailors. Additionally, Bellnoski served as the engineering training team (ETT) coordinator, plant control officer, personnel qualification standard (PQS) and watch bill coordinator. “At the end of the day,

my job was simply to make sure that the engineering department personnel understood what goal we were working towards, understood the plan to get there, their importance to the team in achieving that goal, and making sure that all their time, effort, and sacrifice didn’t go unnoticed,” said Bellnoski. “I was lucky to be able to lead such a dedicated, successful team of engineers. Whether it was space presentation for zone inspection, InSurv (Board of Inspection and Survey), basic phase training cycle, or a routine underway, their spaces and execution were always exceptional and produced exceptional results.” Along with his engineering duties, Bellnoski served as the Chief Petty Officer (CPO) Association vice president, CPO 365 training coordinator, and filled in as command mas-

ter chief when necessary. Bellnoski was honored they submitted him as a candidate for the NMA award. “Words can’t describe how proud and humbling it is to be recognized by a group of your peers who you respect so much,” said Bellnoski. Rear Adm. Mike White, NETC commander, presented the award to Bellnoski. “It’s an honor to present such an impressive award,” said White. “It speaks volumes to be selected by your peer group, and I’m glad to have you on my staff and knowing your leadership will have a positive impact on the NETC team.” Bellnoski transferred from Carney to NETC in November 2016. Upon receiving his orders to be a military manning analyst at NETC, Bellnoski said he really

didn’t know what to expect. After spending most of his career at sea, his understanding of manning was primarily on the receiving end, regarding when a replacement for a Sailor made it out to the ship. “What I like about my job here is, it is like nothing I have done before and has me working outside of my comfort zone,” said Bellnoski. He expressed gratitude for getting to work with a dedicated team at NETC

and for the familiarization and training he has received in all aspects of Navy manning. “This experience is not only an eye-opener, but something that I will be able to add to my toolbox as I move forward in my career,” Bellnoski added. NMA sponsors more than 400 awards annually for presentation by the commanders of Naval Air Forces, Naval Surface Forces, U.S. Marine Forces Atlantic and Pacific and the superintendent of the U.S.

Performers in “All Hands on Deck!” team up to recreate a 1942 roadshow and radio broadcast filled with songs and dances from the World War II era.

Story and photo from Pensacola Saenger Theatre

America’s No. 1 patriotic show, “All Hands on Deck!,” is scheduled for a performance at 7:30 p.m. March 27 at the Pensacola Saenger Theatre. The “All Hands on Deck!” show is an all-singing, all-dancing, all-American 1942 roadshow and radio broadcast reproduction filled with the songs and dances that American has loved for 70 years. Featuring Broadway veteran Jody Madaras and three co-stars, the show also features the rich sounds of the live nine-piece Hollywood Victory Caravan Orchestra. The production features classic commercials, tight har-

monies, impromptu skits and 42 patriotic songs. The show was born of a heart filled with gratitude and patriotism. Madaras, the creator and star, wanted to write a show that would say “Thank you” to the greatest generation – the men and women who served our country during World War II and Korea – and also remind Americans of a time when the country was truly united. “This new 1940s show is very special to me,” Madaras said. “I spent nearly four years writing it.” An Ohio farm boy, Madaras used the Hollywood Victory Caravan – a group of famous film stars who toured America by train in 1942 selling war bonds – as the setting for his

new show. “1942 was one of the most pivotal years in world history paving the way for much of the prosperity we enjoy in this great country of ours,” Madaras said. “That’s our theme: being united, then and now.” The show premiered in 2011 in Perrysburg, Ohio, and after a long national tour became the featured attraction at the Dutton Family Theatre Branson, Mo., in March 2016. Tickets for this reserved seating show are $5, $45 and $35 (plus applicable service charge) Tickets are on sale at the Saenger Theatre Box Office or you can charge by phone by calling 1 (800) 745-3000 or online at ticketmaster.com.
