DoD warns troops, families to be cyber crime smart By Terri Moon Cronk DoD News, Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON – Defense Department employees and their families should be vigilant when guarding personal and work information from expanding cybercriminal activity, and to know how to recognize scammer tactics, according to DoD’s chief information officer. Terry A. Halvorsen issued a DoD-wide memorandum March 18 about the growing threat of cybercrime “phishing” and “spear phishing” in emails, on social media sites and through phone calls. “Phishing” is defined as sending fraudulent emails that claim to be from reputable sources, such as a recipient’s bank or credit card company, to gain personal or financial information. Recipients of such emails are often directed to fraudulent websites that mimic familiar-looking bank and e-commerce sites, according to Encyclopedia Britannica. Phishers ask recipients to “update”

or “confirm” accounts, which discloses confidential information such as Social Security and credit card numbers. Onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, Information Assurance Manager Ron Borlan agrees with the need for increased cyber information vigilance. “It’s unfortunate, but we need to be ‘digitally street smart’ to live in today’s world,” Borlan said. “That means being aware of the potential dangers and carefully evaluating the content you are being sent or accessing via the web ... Don’t get caught up in the moment; be cautious.” “Spear phishing” is the latest twist on phishing, according to Britannica, and it targets companies and government agencies through “select employees” with fraudulent emails, which appear to come from trusted or known sources. When employees click on links in the e-mails, hostile programs enter the organization’s computers.

Blue Angel Rock N Fly Half Marathon and 5K ... The original Blue Angel Marathon was an iconic road-racing event that happened for more than 20 years onboard NAS Pensacola, and after the devastation of Hurricane Ivan in 2004 it was decided not to bring it back for a variety of reasons. After several years and almost no races onboard NAS Pensacola, commanding officers decided collectively to support a comeback. Organizers said this year’s Blue Angel Rock N Fly Half Marathon and 5K Race March 21 was a huge success and the intent is to make it even better for the participants in 2016.

The NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Team is pleased to welcome Mike Domitrz from the Date Safe Project (http://www.datesafeproject.org/) to our installation. Domitrz will be educating and entertaining our military members in three presentations April 9 at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. All three presentations will take place in the NASC Theatre, Bldg. 633. A special presentation will also take place at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) April 10 at 8:30 a.m. This innovative training approach shifts

the focus from a “Don’t” perspective to a “How-To” and gives skills anyone can use, regardless of age, rank, gender, or marital status. In addition to talking about consent, communication, and bystander intervention, Domitrz also engages his audiences in discussions of appropriately supporting survivors of sexual assault, potentially making it easier for them to come forward and seek help. Interested military members should contact their command SAPR POC. SAPR POCs or civilians (with their supervisor’s permission) may secure seats by contacting Civilian Victim Advocate, Kristy Malone, at FFSC: call 452.5328 or e-mail kristy.malone @navy.mil.

Cyber from page 1

“Once you start incorporating information security into your thinking you will begin to more readily notice the scams, avoid them and warn your friends and family,” Borlan said. “It’s just a new facet of a 21st century education.” Cyber-crime tactics evolving: “Cyber criminals continue using phishing and spear-phishing attacks,” Halvorsen said in his memo, “and their tactics are evolving in an increasingly predatory manner.” While military members and DoD civilians are routinely trained in recognizing cyber security red flags, DoD also wants its workforce’s families and parents to be prepared to deal with suspicious email, he added. These cyber criminals also track and mine social media accounts such as Facebook, LinkedIn and others “to interact with people and compromise accounts,” Halvorsen said. Arm yourself with knowledge: “Phishing continues to be successful because attackers do more research, evolve their tactics and seek out easy prey,” he said. “We need to arm ourselves and our families with defensive skills and knowledge to protect (against) being victimized by a phishing email, computer or phone scam.” Halvorsen advises these safeguards to protect against phishing and spear phishing, which can also lead to identity theft: • Never trust links or account/password prompts within email messages. • Note that phishing emails sometimes have poor grammar or misspelled words. • Do not trust information-seeking emails and phone calls, and verify such threats. • Never provide your user identification and/or password. • Use spam filters for personal email. • Never email personal or financial information, even if you know the person requesting it. • Be wary of pop-ups; don’t click links or enter any data. • Don’t copy web addresses from a pop-up into a browser. • Don’t click on links, download files or open attachments.

FY-17 Olmsted Scholarship Program seeking applicants By Ed Barker NETC PAO

Career-minded unrestricted line, Information Dominance Corps and Supply Corps officers interested in developing language skills and regional cultural knowledge are encouraged to apply for the Fiscal Year (FY 17) Olmsted Scholar Program, announced March 16 via NavAdmin 064/15. The Olmsted scholarship is a unique opportunity offering two years of graduate study using a foreign language while providing overseas cultural and travel opportunities and often leads to a graduate degree at a foreign university. Applicants for the FY-17 program should be available to start language training in summer/fall 2016, begin study at a foreign university in 2017 and complete study in 2019. The Navy is looking for leaders who display the qualities of dedicated career officers and who aspire to command as line, Information Dominance and Supply Corps officers. Applicants must have demonstrated strong leadership qualities, solid overall performance, strong promotion potential, and superior demonstrated scholastic ability. Candidates must have three years of commissioned service but no more than 11 years of total active federal service as of April 1, 2016, to apply for the scholarship. Specific designator eligibility is listed in the NavAdmin. Historically, Olmsted Scholars have benefited from the program and continue to promote to senior leadership positions, including 12 past Navy scholars that achieved flag rank. One Olmsted Scholar currently in line for command following his international experience in St. Petersburg Russia is Cmdr. Michael “BC” Nordeen, VFA-211 executive officer. “While the proven path to squadron command in naval aviation is traditionally through Housing from page 1

a fleet replacement squadron, test pilot school or weapons school, the Olmsted Scholar Program provides a unique opportunity for personal and professional growth for those who aspire to senior operational leadership roles,” said Nordeen. “Since our Navy operates forward, we know global experience is an invaluable advantage. I knew I’d have to work to regain my warfighting skill-set, but the Olmsted Scholarship definitely made me a better leader, strategic thinker and decision maker.” According to the Olmsted website, scholars interact daily with locals and immerse themselves in the culture of their host country, but a background in a specific foreign language is not a prerequisite to selection. Scholars are expected to live on the local economy and travel widely. Olmsted scholars receive their normal pay and allowances, and if married, are normally accompanied by their families. The Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC) is currently accepting applications from regular or full time support line, Information Dominance and Supply Corps officers for the FY-17 Olmsted Scholar Program. Applicants are required to meet a list of qualifications and prerequisites and submit a command-endorsed nomination package that must be received by NETPDTC, Code N2A2-Olmsted no later than Aug. 28. In October, the applications are reviewed and a final, Navy-sponsored list of nominees is selected. For each of the past five years, the Foundation Board of Directors has selected five Navy scholars. The Olmsted Foundation, named in honor of Maj. Gen. George and Carol Olmsted, and the Department of Defense have jointly sponsored this scholarship program since 1959. Since its inception, the foundation has fo-

cused on educational and charitable purposes. Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bruce Scott serves as president and chief executive officer of the Olmsted Foundation and was an Olmsted Scholar from 1979-81 at the University of Freiburg (Albert Ludwig) in Freiburg, Germany. Scott believes the success of the program is a direct result of the vision of the man for which the foundation and the scholarship program is named. “Gen. Olmsted, our benefactor and founder, certainly possessed great vision when he said that the world’s greatest leaders must be educated broadly,” said Scott. “For more than 50 years, our program has educated young officers in foreign language fluency and foreign cultures, which are becoming more and more important in today’s world and in supporting the Navy’s Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower.” With the selection of the 57th Olmsted Scholar Class in March 2015, 620 scholars have completed, are completing or are preparing for two years of study abroad. Their studies to date have been in 40 languages, in 202 different foreign universities, spanning 60 countries worldwide. The Navy nominations are submitted to the Olmsted Foundation Board of Directors, along with nomination packages from the other services. During a comprehensive personal interview, the foundation staff examines the nominee’s academic and professional background, motivation to be a scholar, choice of foreign university, proposed course of study, language aptitude and career goals. Taking all this data into account, the interview panel makes its recommendations to the board for final decisions on the nominees at its meeting in March 2016 for the FY-17 Olmsted Scholar class. Specific guidelines and additional details for applying for the Olmsted Scholar Program can be found in NavAdmin 064/15. All eligible and interested officers should visit the Olmsted Foundation website at www. olmstedfoundation.org for additional details.

rah Williams was pleased with the PHMA recognition. “The Balfour Beatty Communities (BBC)/Navy team felt a great sense of pride and accomplishment when notified for the PHMA selection,” Williams said. “This award highlights the shared effort that goes into taking care of our military families each and every day. Every single

member of the team is very appreciative of the recognition, however, there is always room for improvement and we hope to build upon the success that we realized in 2014.” For more information on Navy Housing visit http://www. cnic.navy.mil/ffr/housing.html For more stories about CNIC visit www.navy.mil/cni.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

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

Military spouse supports 2015 Active Duty Fund Drive By Cher Holland Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Pensacola Volunteer

T

he annual Active Duty Fund Drive in support of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) kicked off Feb. 17.

This fund drive, which continues through April, is the main source of funds NMCRS depends on to help Sailors, Marines and their families. In 2014 alone, NMCRS provided $48.5 million to 63,800 eligible clients. These millions of dollars aided families with basic living expenses, transportation, car repairs, family emergencies, funeral expenses, household setups, medical/dental expenses, education and more. All active-duty Sailors and Marines will be asked to contribute. Many will, however, some will not. While many reasons may exist why a sailor or marine chooses not to donate, most frequently it is because they have never needed financial assistance or don’t foresee ever needing the services of NMCRS. Today as a military spouse I challenge this excuse. Traveling from duty station to duty station, outside the continental United States and within the continental United States military families have become my family and have made every duty station a home away from home. Frequently our actual families are hundreds if not thousands of miles away, making it difficult

How to submit a commentary

for them to provide the day to day support we need. That is where the brothers and sisters within the military, as well as their dependents, become our support network. They are our shoulders to cry on, friends to laugh with, and the ones we most often spend the holidays with. They understand the details of our days that many of our actual families cannot even begin to imagine. So perhaps you are correct, you won’t ever need assistance from NMCRS, yet emergencies happen, and they will be there. More importantly, maybe you don’t need financial assistance, but your brother or sister in uniform may need it. Give for them. Give for your family away from your family. Give so that you can help support those who so often support us. Contributions to NMCRS are fully deductible under Section 170(b)(1)(a) of the IRS Code. NMCRS is exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the tax code. Founded in 1904, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is a private, nonprofit charitable organization. It is sponsored by the Department of the Navy

and operates nearly 250 offices ashore and afloat at Navy and Marine Corps bases throughout the world. NMCRS was incorporated in the District of Columbia and has its headquarters in Arlington, Va. It is managed by a board of directors whose members are active duty or retired members of the naval

services, or spouses of active duty or retired members of the naval services. The Pensacola office of Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, located aboard NAS Pensacola in Bldg. 191 at 91 Radford Blvd., is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays (except for holidays) and can be reached at 452-2300.

Fly-in offers NASP students good look at career choices By Ens. Emily Wilkin NASP PAO

A

selection of Navy fleet aircraft flew into NAS Pensacola’s Forrest Sherman Field March 20 so crews could talk to NASP aviation students about their experiences, flight platforms and missions.

These aircrews shared their passion for their careers, and their specific aircraft, in hopes of aiding the next generation of aviators in selecting their own platform in the future. An E-2C Hawkeye, F/A-18 Super Hornet, EA-18G Growler and P-8 Poseidon participated in the demonstration. “We’re doing this so aviation students get an opportunity to touch, feel and experience naval aviation before the fleet,” said NASP Training Squadron 10 (VT-10) Commanding Officer Cmdr. Mark Yates. “It gives students a chance to meet the pilots and see all the planes so they can make an informed decision about their career paths.” “I’m just here to tell them how cool my job is,” said Lt. Alexander Tucker of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron 124 in Norfolk, Va. “I love what I’m doing and

I want them to feel that way someday, too.” Tucker was part of the E-2C Hawkeye crew, the Bear Aces. “There are some rumors about my platform and I have no idea where they come from; that’s why we keep coming back to these events. So people really know what our platform is about. Hawkeyes are the perfect combination of a good quality of life, while still being fun to fly.” After meeting with the aircrews and touring the aircraft, students had an opportunity to brief with the crews in a small group setting to ask specific questions about the platforms. Students found the fly-in helpful. “I came to this fly-in to talk to junior officers about their platforms,” said Ens. Stephanie Lasch. “They gave great insight into daily life on each aircraft. This information really helped reassure my preferences for the fleet.”

NASWF celebrates African-American History Story, photo by Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

T

he Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Diversity Committee hosted an African-American heritage celebration Feb. 25 at the base auditorium to honor the achievements and contributions of Black Americans throughout our country’s history. The luncheon was open to the entire Whiting Field community. The committee chose an audio recording of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speaking to set the ambiance as guests entered the auditorium. NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau kicked-off the event by mentioning several African-Americans who established milestones for others to follow: Winston Scott, a former space shuttle astronaut who logged more than 24 days of time in space; Vernice Armor, the first female African-American combat pilot and Lt. Col. Merryl Tengsdahl, the first African-American woman to fly the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft. “All three great Americans trained right here at NAS Whiting Field,” he reminded the audience before introducing the event’s special guest, Florida State Rep. Mike Hill. Hill served as the primary speaker for the luncheon, and spoke about his and his father’s military background and how

that molded him into the man he is today. Military service was a passion that drove him to succeed and although he left after ten years to pursue civilian challenges, he “loved every minute of (his service). “Serving my country is something I always wanted to do since I was a little child,” Hill stated. “I wanted to be a part of what I considered the American Dream.” Hill’s services started in 1980 as a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy. During his 10 years on active duty, he received recognition of exceptional service through awards such as Air Force Achievement Medal; Air Force Commendation Medal; Air Force Organizational Excellence Award; and the Armament Division Company Grade Officer of the Year in 1988. He separated from service as a captain to start an insurance business which he successfully ran for more than 20 years.

Naval Air Station Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau (left) and Florida Rep. Mike Hill converse while enjoying the lunch served by the NASWF Diversity Committee for their annual AfricanAmerican History Commemorative Luncheon. Hill served as the guest speaker for the Feb. 25 event.

He is also a past-president of the Northwest Florida Tea Party from 2010-2013 and ran for office unsuccessfully once, which he described as a somewhat humbling experience, but which enabled him to learn from his mistakes. “Even though I lost the race, I was exposed to areas of the Panhandle I was unaware of previously,” he said. He had no inclination to try again, but after several requests to run for the seat after Representative Clay Ford’s death, he relented, and won the seat handily – after working with an advisor who stressed the need for him to have a platform. Hill ran

on the ideas of limited government, fewer taxes, and personal responsibility. Hill has been married to his wife Greta for 30 years and is a father of three children, including a son serving as a U.S. Marine. More than any other message, he emphasized the importance of family throughout his presentation. Having been brought up in a military family, his father was an A-4 crew chief, Hill found value in the discipline and the travel involved in a military life, and that the strong grounding he had from his family set the foundation for his success. “Raise your children the way you believe they should grow,”

he said. “What I share with you is that you need to show them the way to go. You have to set the example for them.” Everyone’s idea of the American dream is different, and Hill’s certainly does not equate to everyone else’s vision, but Lt. Col. Rafford Coleman, Helicopter Training Squadron 18’s commanding officer, thought it was important to hear. “It was inspiring to hear how someone achieves their definition of the American dream,” he stated. “His core messages of family, education and service are valuable. It was a very thoughtful and inspiring speech.”

Commander, Naval Safety Center onboard NASWF By Ens. Andrew Groh NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Rear Adm. Christopher Murray, Commander, Naval Safety Center, visited NAS Whiting Field March 10 to take on a question and answer session with the students of the Aviation Maintenance Officer/Aviation Ordinance Officer Career Progression (AMO/AOOCP) programs. Murray began the talks focusing on aviation safety and Operational Risk Management (ORM) in the fleet as a whole, while finishing with personal off duty activities towards the end. Of the many topics covered in the conversation, Murray continued to bring the students’ attention to ORM. ORM is the Navy’s guiding instruction on acknowledging and addressing risk both on and off duty for all Navy personnel in order to successfully accomplish all opera-

tions or activities with the least amount of risk possible. Murray shared with his audience that more often than not, “class A mishaps” – incidents resulting in damages in excess of $2,000,000 – are a result of human error and could have been avoided with the proper use of ORM. He continued by saying that everyone in an operation is responsible for assuring that proper ORM is followed at any given moment and not the sole responsibility of any one person. As the Q&A progressed, the topics remained on safety and covered issues such as motorcycle risk, snowboarding accidents and scuba diving to name a few. Murray commented that his goal was to make ORM and safety more of an overall lifestyle addition, not just a workplace requirement. “Let’s talk about off duty risk. Riding motorcycles are a great and fun thing to do, if you risk mitigate properly,

you can do it safely. Of the 20 motorcycle mishaps we had last year in the Navy, four of them, there was nothing the rider could have done. The other 16 could have been prevented. So to address that, we have the rider safety courses to help educate riders on proper safe riding.” Murray continued his coverage of off duty recreational risk by referencing a young Sailor stationed in Hawaii. While enjoying some off time with a group of friends, she decided to go cliff diving – and lost her life. “The Navy and Marine Corps doesn’t want to ban risky places or activities for service members ... Instead, we want to push education and allow service members to enjoy the activities they are interested in once they have properly recognized and taken steps to minimize any potential risk involved. We want ORM to be instilled from the minute you start boot camp ... and follow you into your personal life and everything you do after the military.”

Navy’s international training command selects CoY By Lt. Cmdr. Shelline Floyd NETSAFA Public Affairs Officer

T

he Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) announced their selection of the Civilian of the Year (CoY) March 16. Gerald “Gerry” Swann, foreign military assistance specialist and cost analyst, was chosen as NETSAFA’s first CoY in the command’s history. “This Navy command, NETSAFA, is very good at rewarding its employees,” said Swann. “I’m fortunate to have had the opportunity to start a career here and to have worked so many years with such a great team.” Swann has worked at NETSAFA since 1992 and has served in his current position for seven and a half years. During his 22-year tenure at NETSAFA, he graduated from the University of West Florida with a bachelor of arts in electrical engineering in 2008, and also received his master’s degree in computer science in 2010. One of his hobbies is studying mathematical algorithms. No stranger to command awards, he was the recipient of the Navy’s Meritorious Civilian Service Award in 2013. According to Janie Glover, NETSAFA deputy director,

Swann is a hard worker both on-the-job and during his offtime. “It is wonderful to be able to recognize someone that has performed unbelievable tasks throughout 2014 that benefited every department in this command,” said Glover. “Gerry is a great asset to NETSAFA and is well deserving of recognition as our first CoY.” Jan Isosaari, billing and costing division supervisor, nominated Swann for the award, and says he is a problem solver; when presented with a problem he looks for an expeditious solution. “He is revered by his peers in the costing division and at NETSAFA,” said Isosaari. “Gerry always has time for his teammates and willingly provides patient instruction and guidance in various databases and (Microsoft) Excel operations.”

According to the award nomination, Swann used his extensive knowledge of computers to streamline processes in the costing division of NETSAFA’s Finance Department. Specifically, he developed cradle-to-grave automated software tools that started with the creation of the Activity Costing Worksheet (ACW), which was briefed and approved for use by all maritime partners (Navy/ Marine Corps/ Coast Guard). He further refined the ACW to create an ACW specific to Commander Fleet Forces Command (CFFC) requirements and incorporated recommendations and requirements

requested by CFFC to include flight and associated simulator costs for international pilots, which provided a new method of pricing for CFFC. NETSAFA Finance Department Head Frank Cabigting appreciates Swann’s unique skill-set. “The combination of intricate mathematical skills coupled with extensive computer hardware and software knowledge has made him a valued asset, not just to our finance department, but to NETSAFA as a whole,” said Cabigting. NETSAFA is the U.S. Navy’s agent for international education and training and co-

ordinates training support to international governments and international organizations. As a field activity of the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), the command serves as a focal point for all security assistance training program issues, coordination and advice within the U.S. Navy.

Team of experts complete revision of yeoman standards From Center for Service Support Newport Public Affairs

N

ORFOLK (NNS) – Navy administration subject matter experts recently gathered for five days at the NATO headquarters building in Norfolk, Va., to update the yeoman (YN) rating personnel qualification standards (PQS). YNC Christopher Byard, yeoman rate training manager at Center for Service Support (CSS) Newport, R.I., oversees all training materials provided to the more than 2,500 Sailors serving as yeoman in the fleet. Byard led the team of 18 Sailors updating the 134page training document. “A PQS is a compilation of the minimum knowledge and skills an individual must demonstrate to qualify to stand watches or perform other spe-

cific routine duties necessary for the safety, security or proper operation of a ship, aircraft or support system,” Byard said when asked about a PQS. “As the technologies our Sailors work with change and evolve, so too, must the training and curriculum by which we train our yeoman. This is vital to the development of our community.” The working group was comprised of Sailors representing the yeoman rating from different backgrounds in-

cluding shore commands, ships, training commands, and staff headquarters. According to Richard J. Rangel, CSS PQS manager, “The updated YN PQS reflects the continuing efforts of CSS to ensure all Sailors in the fleet are provided the necessary training materials to succeed.” YNCM Diego Reyes, yeoman technical adviser, routinely attends working groups and workshops concerning the yeoman rating. The goal of the newly revised yeoman PQS is utilization by every Sailor throughout the administrative office enterprise thereby making the whole force better. Reyes encouraged all yeomen to use the PQS to assist with career advance-

ment as well as all other facets of the yeoman rating. The new PQS will be available to Sailors beginning April 1, via Navy Knowledge Online and Navy Personnel Command websites as well as social media distribution. The Center for Service Support is comprised of active-duty, civilian and contractor personnel, who direct the training efforts of seven different administration, logistics and media schools. The CSS team ensures curriculum and professional development tools are current. For more news from Center for Service Support, go to www.navy. mil/local/css/.
