CNIC: Leadership and culture change are paramount to energy savings By Vice Adm. Bill French Commander, Navy Installations Command

“Shipmates, I need your help and your engagement. Simply put, we’re using too much energy throughout the shore enterprise and we need to make reducing energy one of our top priorities. Make no mistake: energy usage reduction is a strategic imperative. Why? Every dollar we spend keeping lights on, powering personal coffee pots and refrigerators, or putting gas in government vehicles is a dollar that we can’t spend elsewhere on the shore – pier and runway maintenance, CDCs, base security – or, far more urgently, return to the fleet for operations – flying, steaming, and training. We’ve made progress – in the shore enterprise, we used a lot less energy in 2013 than we did in 2003. We’re also making progress in where we get our energy; in 2013, we were able to make or buy a lot of the energy we used in facilities from renewable sources. That’s encouraging, but we’re still have more work to do to

meet the SecNav and CNO’s goals for reducing energy consumption by 2020. Although we’ve made progress, we have a long way to go and I need your help. This is an all hands effort: Sailor, civilian and contractor; flag officer and seaman alike; spouses and families – everyone plays a part. So, what are we doing and what can you do? CNIC, in partnership with NavFac, has invested in highly efficient heating and cooling systems, designing and building energy efficient facilities, special training for energy and facility managers, and advanced energy management systems. Those systems, coupled with smart meters, give us a snapshot of how much energy gets used in a given building and lets us monitor energy use in real time. Monitoring energy helps us see whether we’re meeting our energy goals, but actually meeting those goals is going to take hard work and a significant change in culture. It’s on both fronts where we need you actively engaged.

Blue Angels return to NAS Pensacola ... The Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron the Blue Angels performed a flyover for their families upon returning to Pensacola March 24, landing to reunite with their loved ones after two months’ absence. “It feels absolutely incredible,” said Marine Capt. Brandon Cordill, slot pilot for the 2014 season. “We’ve been gone for eight weeks and obviously coming home is the best part. We all miss our families ... happy to be home, but it’s only for a short-lived few days before we hit the road and hit south Texas.” Cordill’s wife, two daughters and son welcomed him home from Ontario, Calif. The Blue Angels were in California for the NAF El Centro Annual Air Show, L.A. County Air Show and Auto Club Speedway Flyover. Practice at NASP was held March 26. The Blues will perform a full air show at Pensacola Beach July 12, as well as their Homecoming Air Show Nov. 7-9. Photo by Aly Altonen

Corry cats find temporary home Story, photo by Aly Altonen NASP PAO Intern

The mission to uproot a cat colony on NAS Pensacola has had a “purr”-fect ending. NAS Pensacola Navy Natural Resources, Public Works Department (PWD) and Ham’s Pest Control have been working with Jan Papra and other members of the Escambia County Animal Allies (ECAA) to catch a group of cats that have been roaming the Corry Navy Exchange (NEX) gas station area and the NAS Navy Lodge area. Thirty-five cats have been caught, but there are still more roaming around. “The cat issue is a real difficult, controversial topic; it’s a hot potato,” said Mark Gibson, Navy Natural Resources manager, a cat and dog owner and animal lover himself. Ten cats were caught by NASP and taken to the ECAA, while an-

other 25 were caught by the ECAA members, Gibson said. Unfortunately, one cat had to be euthanized

because it was infected with feline leukemia virus (FeLV), which kills 85 percent of cats with the disease within three years, according to pets.webmd.com. The disease is also transmittable. Gibson strongly disagrees with euthanasia of any animal. “I’m not OK with it, unless it has a disease that would transmit to others,” he said. Keeping the cats alive and healthy is something both base officials and ECAA firmly believed in. That is why NASP cooperated with the ECAA by allowing them to have the cats that were caught. Otherwise, the cats would have been in danger of being euthanized if given to the Escambia County Shelter. The cats had to be transferred to another area. “The Navy policy is clear ... we will not condone cat colonies on Navy property,” Gibson said.

New Navy training commander visits Navy’s only boot camp Story, photo by Scott A. Thornbloom Naval Service Training Command Public Affairs

The new head of Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) visited Recruit Training Command (RTC), the headquarters of Naval Service Training Command (NSTC) and Training Support Center (TSC) in Great Lakes, Ill., March 19-21. Rear Adm. Michael S. White made his first visit to Naval Station Great Lakes and area training commands since assuming command, Jan. 24, as the 18th commander of NETC, headquartered at Naval Air Station Pensacola. During his visit, he toured RTC’s state-ofthe art facilities and served as the guest of honor at the weekly pass-in-review (PIR) graduation in RTC’s Midway Ceremonial Drill Hall, during which 742 recruits, after completing recruit training requirements, of-

ficially became Sailors. “Any trip to Great Lakes to see how we transform young men and women into Sailors is inspiring, motivational and really highlights the quality of our Recruit Divi-

sion Commanders (RDCs) and all those involved in the process,” said White. White said it was just his second visit to Great Lakes, the first time not having an opportunity to see the training at the RTC, the Navy’s only boot camp. “I also had the chance to see several of our “A” schools (designated Navy Enlisted Classification training for ratings after boot camp) and Battle Stations 21 at RTC,” he said. Battle Stations 21 is the culmination of eight weeks of training by recruits. It is a 12hour test of a recruit’s skills in several shipboard scenarios, including firefighting, combating flooding and transporting casualties. It is held on board USS Trayer (BST 21), a 210-foot-long Arleigh Burke-class destroyer replica, the Navy’s largest simulator. White also toured some of RTC’s most distinctive structures including the 173,000-

Have medical questions? Call the TRICARE Nurse Advice Line Submitted by the Defense Health Agency

Sometimes it is difficult to know if and when to seek medical help for acute health problems, so having professional help at a moment’s notice is invaluable. The Military Health System’s (MHS) new Nurse Advice Line (NAL) for TRICARE beneficiaries does just that. TRICARE beneficiaries enrolled at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) and its 10 Naval Branch Health Clinics will be able to call the NAL toll-free 24 hours a day, seven days a week

starting today, March 28. TRICARE beneficiaries in the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii will be able to begin using the NAL in late April. The NAL is a team of registered nurses who are available to answer a variety of urgent healthcare questions. They can help you decide whether self-care is the best option, or if it is better to see a healthcare provider. There will always be a live-person on the line to address beneficiary concerns.

The NAL offers a variety of solutions for all TRICARE beneficiaries. For pediatric issues, the NAL will route the beneficiary to a pediatric nurse. If followup is necessary or requested, the NAL will call the beneficiary back to check the child’s status a few hours later. The NAL will make same-day appointments with the beneficiary’s primary care manager (PCM) for TRICARE Prime beneficiaries who are enrolled to Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs). If a

same day appointment is not available, the NAL will re-direct the beneficiary to the closest urgent care center, and advise the PCM that an urgent care referral is needed so the patient does not have to worry about paying any point of service co-pays. All other TRICARE beneficiaries who are not enrolled to a MTF will receive professional health advice about their urgent health concern and when to seek urgent care. When calling the NAL, a customer service representative will verify the beneficiary’s eligibility through the Defense En-

We need to turn thermostats down in the winter and up in the summer. We need to charge our personal phones and tablets at home. We need to unplug all the personal appliances in offices throughout the Navy. Just like we employ operational risk management when we embark on missions, we need to employ energy risk management before we plug it in or turn it on. Another big part of our culture change is engaged leaders and supervisors and a lot of engaged innovation at all levels. Everyone needs to think of – and then implement – their best practices and new ideas to reduce energy usage. I know of a Sailor who buys pizza for his kids when they turn lights off at his house – I can’t buy you pizza, but we need to involve everyone; this isn’t just a job for the energy managers. Navy Region Northwest is saving significant amounts of energy – and money – by using plasma lighting. These are only two examples but my point is this: we need involvement at all levels and all ideas are worthwhile. Thanks for what you’re doing, stay safe, and remember to think about it before you turn it on.” Onboard NAS Pensacola, Public Works Department (PWD) Energy Team Leader Lt.j.g. Kristi Acuff acknowledged French’s message, adding “Here at NAS Pensacola, we’ve reduced our energy intensity by 21 percent since 2003, but we still have a lot of work to do to reach our goal of cutting our energy use in half by 2020. Vice Adm. French’s message helps to emphasize that this is a team effort: each and every one of us can make a difference. Even the smallest acts of turning the lights off and unplugging unnecessary electronics can add up to real savings.” NASP Public Works Officer Cmdr. Jeff Deviney agreed. “The Navy has invested a substantial amount of money to improve the energy efficiency of our facilities, but without the buy-in of those who live and work in those buildings, we’ll never be able to realize the full potential of these efficiencies,” he said.

Pet owners should be reminded that the Navy policy states individuals should not leave their pets upon leaving the area. “Most of these cats have been dumped by pet owners. The military is no exception to that,” said Gibson. Military service members constantly transfer out of the area, and sometimes pets get left behind. It is prohibited to feed outdoor cats as well as allow pets of any kind to roam freely on Navy land. Base residents should also have their pets microchipped, as that is a requirement too. If base residents or personnel have any questions regarding these procedures, contact the veterinarian office at Corry Station. The office can be reached at 452-6882. As for the Corry cats, they are currently residing and being cared for in a barn located in Cantonment. Papra, who did a majority of the work with ECAA members to successfully relocate the cats, is thankful for the compromise. Now, he and the members of the group are in the process of creating a cat “farm” for all of the cats caught. “The work will be a little bit vigorous, but after it’s all done, we’ll have a safe harbor for the Corry cats and probably a couple more,” Papra said. Work on newly donated land to the ECAA began last Saturday. It is a large job, which consists of clearing land, taking down buildings and building fences. “We’d like to get them down to this refuge where we know we can take care of them and they’ll have a good life,” said Papra. Volunteers are more than welcome to help on Saturdays. Food will be provided, as well as transportation, if needed. Community service credit will also be given. For more information, contact Papra at 292-3338. RTC from page 1

square-foot, three-story physical fitness training facility, Freedom Hall. He also toured other RTC facilities, including the In-processing Center, known as “Golden 13” and named after the first 13 African American Navy officers. He visited the USS Indianapolis Combat Training Pool, USS Chief Fire Fighting Trainer and USS Arizona recruit barracks. The NETC commander said he was very impressed with all the training he observed but mostly he was impressed with the instructors. “I was impressed with the high quality of our instructors and their ability to take what we can provide them with laboratory and training equipment and mold young men and women into highlytrained Sailors,” said White. White added that even though he’s only been the NETC commander for a

rollment and Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). Beneficiaries with an acute health care concern or question will be connected with a registered nurse that will ask the beneficiary a series of very standard questions to determine the next steps and allow the NAL nurse to provide the best advice possible. Beneficiaries are still encouraged to contact their Medical Home Port Team or PCM, but the NAL is another option for beneficiaries to access the care they need and want in a timely fashion.

few months, he is already looking at how Navy training can become better. “I think the generation of young men and women that are joining our service are certainly more technical savvy than I was when I came in. We want to look at ways to engage and motivate them through the technology they are used to growing up in this century,” he said. RTC is primarily responsible for conducting the initial Navy orientation and training of new recruits. The command is commonly referred to as “boot camp” or “recruit training” and has been in operation at Great Lakes since 1911. Boot camp is approximately eight weeks, and all enlistees into the United States Navy begin their careers at the command. Training includes physical fitness, seamanship, firearms familiarization, firefighting and shipboard damage control, lessons in Navy heritage and core values, teamwork and discipline.

Since the closure of RTCs in Orlando and San Diego in 1994, RTC Great Lakes is, today, the Navy’s only basic training location, and is known as “The Quarterdeck of the Navy.” Today, more than 39,000 recruits graduate annually from RTC and begin their Navy careers. RTC is overseen by Naval Service Training Command (NSTC), headquartered in Bldg. 1, the historic clock tower building on Naval Station Great Lakes, Ill. NSTC (NSTC) oversees 98 percent of initial officer and enlisted accessions training for the Navy. For more news on NETC, visit www.netc.navy.mil.

I will take my family’s spring break trip ’80s style By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

“Don’t crush the groceries!” I yelled as my teenage son smashed the car top carrier lid closed. With everything for our family spring break trip packed, we piled into our salt-hazed minivan and hit the road. I wondered if all this rigmarole was worth it for a few days of so-called vacation. I worked myself into a pre-trip frenzy, making lists, doing laundry, kenneling the dog, getting the oil changed, packing, double checking and packing some more. All that hassle just to spend military leave time stuffing ourselves like sardines into our minivan for 11 long hours. And once we get there, we will be unpacking, making beds, cooking, cleaning and managing the children just like we always do. Same work, different location. Is spring break really worth all this hassle? As we passed through the Naval Station Newport base gate and headed south, I recalled an easier time. It was 1986, and I used my new credit card to buy a spring break trip with my college roommates. I was broke, but

She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. all those Citibank sign up ads around campus promised a $1,000 credit limit, and all I had to do was pay a little bit off each month. “Wow, what a great deal!” I thought in my youthful ignorance.

After curling our bangs, my roommates and I boarded a bus, chartered by Sigma Epsilon Fraternity and headed from chilly Ohio to sunny Daytona Beach, Fla. The frat brothers thoughtfully included a six-pack of Little Kings Cream Ale in the trip package price, just in case the passengers got thirsty on the 14-hour ride south. “Ohmigod,” my roommate exclaimed halfway through Tennessee, “Like, I totally can’t find Lisa anywhere!” “No way!” “Way!” They did not know that I had crawled up in the overhead luggage compartment to sleep off those Little Kings. On the day of our arrival, I promptly burned myself to a crisp laying out on the beach. Later at a belly flop contest at the motel pool, I tried to hide the pain, sipping wine coolers

with my roommates while dancing to “I’ll Stop The World and Melt With You” – a la Molly Ringwald in “The Breakfast Club” – in our stone-washed denim and Wayfarers. We took note of one particular college boy moonwalking in checkered Vans, red Birdwell Beach Britches and a blonde mullet. He was the kind of cool guy who probably drove a Camero. The loudspeaker blared as he climbed the high dive, “Next we have Mad (expletive deleted) Mike from University of Maryland!” We cheered with the crowd, but in the end, his svelte torso was no match for the linebacker from Mississippi State with a gut tinged pink from multiple flawless flops. By the time we boarded the bus for our return to Ohio a

week later, I had sloughed off the first three layers of my skin, lost my Jellies shoes, survived on happy hour nachos, been totally ignored by Mad (expletive deleted) Mike, and maxed out my $1,000 credit limit, totally unaware that I would be paying off the debt for the next eight years. And it was totally worth it. There was something special about the ’80s. Was it the big hair? Orange Julius? Hackey Sacks? Mr. T? New Wave music? Shoulder pads? Hawaiian pizza? The Cosby Show? McDLTs? The Sprinkler Dance? Tri-color pasta salad? Parachute pants? Boom boxes? Frosted eye shadow? Deely-bobbers? Alf? Fried potato skins? A carefree state of mind? Whatever it was, the ’80s were fun. A lot of fun. “Honey,” I asked my husband as we entered the New Jersey Turnpike, “find that ’80s radio station, would you?” The children groaned, and began arguing over whether we were getting lunch at Wendy’s or Chick-filA, but I leaned back in my seat, put on my sunglasses and said, “I think this might turn out to be our best spring break trip ever.” Like, totally.

Salutations with a bang: The military gun salute By MC1 Tim Comerford Naval History and Heritage Command Communication and Outreach Division

I

f you’ve ever attended a significant military ceremony, you may not have seen it, but you certainly heard it: the booming report of a military gun salute. Gun salutes have been around for centuries and, as they’ve evolved, shared a common purpose with the hand salute.

Although those origins are not entirely clear, it is believed that both honors were originally intended to show deference on the part of the person saluting to the person being saluted. The honors also demonstrated that the renderer of the salute was for all intents and purposes unarmed – a person using their right hand to salute could not easily wield a sword, and cannons, once fired, required some time to reload. According to the Naval History and Heritage Command, “Early warriors demonstrated their peaceful intentions by placing their weapons in a position that rendered them ineffective.” Additionally, it was once customary for a ship entering a friendly port to discharge its cannons to demonstrate that they

were unloaded. The tradition of ceremonially discharging a ship’s weapons has evolved more to show honor rather than subservience or a state of readiness. The U.S. Navy has had a tradition of gun salutes

since its earliest days. On Nov. 16, 1776, the Continental Navy brigantine Andrew Doria captained by Isaiah Robinson fired a salute of 13 guns on entering the harbor of St. Eustatius in the West Indies. A few minutes later,

the salute was returned by nine guns by order of the Dutch governor of the island. The 13 gun salute represented the 13 newlyformed United States and the return salute was the customary salute rendered to a republic. This has been called the “first salute” to the American flag. The first official salute by a foreign nation to the Stars and Stripes took place Feb. 14, 1778, when the Continental Navy ship Ranger, under Capt. John Paul Jones, fired 13 guns and received nine in return from the French fleet anchored in Quiberon Bay, France. Since that time gun salutes have been used at many events. The most famous gun salute is, of course, the 21-gun salute. The first written instruction on the 21-gun salute comes from 1818 U.S Naval Regulations which stated, “When the president shall visit a ship of the United States’ Navy, he is to be saluted with 21 guns.” It may be noted that 21 was the number of states in the union at that time. For a time thereafter, it became customary to offer a salute of one gun for each state in the union, although in practice there was a great deal of variation in the number of guns actually used in a salute. Today, the national salute of 21 guns is fired

in honor of a national flag, the sovereign or chief of state of a foreign nation, a member of a reigning royal family, and the president, ex-president and president-elect of the United States. It is fired at noon on the day of Washington’s Birthday, Presidents Day and the Fourth of July. On the funeral day of a president, ex-president, or president-elect, and on Memorial Day, a salute of 21 minute guns is fired at noon while the flag is flown at half-mast. Though sometimes mistaken for a 21-gun salute, the three volleys fired at funerals by a fir-

With the release of the Navy Landing Party Manual of 1960, the firing party was broken off from the escort formation and the size was reduced down to seven personnel. Currently, at funerals where military honors are rendered and a firing party is present, the team composition may consist of three, five or seven members to fire three volleys.

The custom of firing volleys at a funeral is thought by some to have originated in ancient times in the practice of making loud noises to scare off evil spirits.

Currently, all gun salutes are fired at five second intervals.

Energy checklist helps increase efficiency By Shawn Miller Naval District Washington Public Affairs

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – As each of the five pillars of the Naval District Washington (NDW) energy policy build upon one another into a comprehensive strategy, efficiency becomes a keystone in the hierarchy. Energy leaders within Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) and other NDW commands are teaming up in an effort to improve building and utility infrastructure and vehicles by incorporating technology and management practices in the hopes of saving power and money. One of the main areas being looked at is renovation and construction of high performance and sustainable buildings through the NDW-NavFac Capital Improvements Energy Checklist and the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. The energy checklist is a tool to help bridge the gap between more than 40 energy mandates and the end products and services, explained NavFac architect Mike Gala, the checklist leader. Working with the checklist becomes a collaborative process across many disciplines and people from architects and policy makers down to individual installation energy managers (IEMs) in the field implementing the projects.

“I’m helping focus their targets in the earliest phases of the projects so they can better allocate resources-dollars and technology-in the right direction,” Gala said of the IEMs. “We need installation energy managers to help us define what the performance goal is and what that performance target is. This is that collaboration that is really necessary.” The energy checklist is composed of 15 different areas covering various aspects of buildings and systems including efficiency, data measurement and verification, fuel choices, and renewable energy sources, and is continually monitored throughout the life cycle of the project. As goals are continually met and more are set for the future, Gala adapts the checklist as time passes to ensure it meets the changing needs in NDW. “It’s an ongoing process and it’s a live document, so as criteria changes, I’m updating the energy checklist,” he said. The checklist is not automatically used in every energy project, however. Depending on the scope and scale of an energy project, the checklist may

not always be necessary, Gala explained. Some smaller projects might only need to renovate certain key components within a building or system without necessitating the broader strokes of the checklist. The true power of the checklist, Gala said, is when architects and energy personnel are able to affect a broader range of projects, such as constructing all new infrastructure that incorporates LEED certifications. “Our focus with the energy checklist is really high performance buildings,” said Gala of smarter and more efficient structures. That focus expands beyond

simply building the framework and systems, and delves into the monitoring of the building’s performance to help evaluate processes and adapt if necessary. While many of the smarter systems may cost more up front during construction, having the data to prove the eventual energy savings helps to justify the extra initial funding, Gala said. “It’s a very cyclical relationship,” he noted. After architects design the systems, the IEMs are the fieldlevel experts in providing the data and feedback crucial to maintaining that relationship. Having many different people involved in the collaborative process of the checklist is

beneficial because it prevents “stove-piping” of people and resources into competing forces, Gala said. While implementation often poses the biggest challenge, the checklist helps focus efforts and work toward the ultimate goal of building the NDW energy strategy. “It’s helping you navigate all those mandates and all those requirements in a multidiscipline approach,” he said. “The ultimate goal is to reduce our energy footprint.” For more news and information from around NDW, visit www.facebook.com/ NavDistWash and www. navy. mil/ local/ndw/.

ITT expo to bring travel information to NAS Whiting Field personnel By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

M

ore than 40 representatives from leisure and recreation companies will converge on Naval Air Station Whiting Field April 11 for the second annual NASWF Travel Expo. The three-hour event offers members of the Whiting community a chance to speak to agents and learn more about the various recreational activities in the Southeast. Hotels, amusement parks, nature preserves, adventure activities, resorts, museums, and other types of recreational opportunities will be represented during the expo. “We have a wide variety of attractions from Louisiana to Georgia to Central Florida,” Marcy Allen, the ITT manager said. “Customers get an opportunity to speak with (representatives from) all sorts of attractions. There should be something here for everyone.” Last year’s expo was a tremendous success for a first-year endeavor, and more than 300 people attended the event. That success earned NAS Whiting Field increased interest from the vendors and a better time slot. The 2013 expo was the final one on the Northwest Florida swing and came after a show much farther east. Many vendors elected to bypass the show due to the added

travel. This year’s show is benefitting from a more logical time-frame, the day after NAS Pensacola’s show. There could be as much as a 50 percent increase in the number of vendors attending. Vendors already confirmed include: Sandals, Universal Orlando, Wonderworks Panama City Beach, Daytona Raceway, Military Resort Rentals, Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament, Historic Westville, Hilton Garden Inn New Orleans, Georgia Aquarium, Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore, Buena Vista Suites, Armed Forces Vacation Club, Alpine Helen CVB, Adventures Unlimited, Legoland and many more. Allen and Cynthia Myers, the entire complement of the ITT office, worked diligently for the past several months to ensure the event is positive for both the vendors and for the event attendees. It is a struggle for such a

small office to host a large-scale event of this nature (most ITT offices hosting expos have four to eight employees), but feedback from the first year was complimentary and the ITT team is using the information to help prepare for this year’s program. “The response last year was overwhelming,” Allen said. “Many of these vendors only know a little about the base, but the ones who came last year helped spread the word. We want this to be something that the people at Whiting can look forward to every year.” The layout of the vendors in the atrium will change significantly due to the larger numbers, but much of the format will remain the same. Guests will be provided a “passport” when they enter. The passport has spots for each of the vendors, and as an attendee speaks with a representative

Information Tickets and Travel (ITT) Manager Marcy Allen speaks to one of the vendors before the 2013 travel expo at Naval Air Station Whiting Field. More than 300 people attended the last expo, and Allen is hoping for even more this year when the travel expo comes back to NAS Whiting Field April 11. Photo by Jay Cope.

from the leisure activity, the passport will be stamped. After completing the circuit, the passport can be dropped in a basket before exiting. As an incentive to complete the circuit, companies donated more than $7,000 in door prizes. Prizes vary from lodging accommodations at various hotels, tickets to attractions, to gift baskets. Winners will be drawn from completed cards drawn from the basket, and they do not need to be present to win. Given the unique nature of Training Air Wing Five’s mission and the short duration during which students are able to learn the area, an event like this provides an invaluable opportunity to

present a lot of information and literature in a very short period of time. Students make up more than one-third of the population of NAS Whiting Field, and many are only here for a few months of intensive study. Recreation time is limited, and Allen wants to make sure that their opportunities are maximized. “Students just don’t have the time to research what is available to them in the region. They come in to our office all the time and ask ‘What can I do?’ and we help them plan their time off. The expo will give them a chance to speak with 40 to 50 travel attractions in one day,” she said. If Allen has one goal, it is to try to give the ven-

dors exposure to the people on the base and help them understand how important NAS Whiting Field is. Of course, increasing turnout to the event wouldn’t hurt either. Three hundred was a strong number for a first-year program, and equitable to much larger bases, but she would still like to encourage more people to attend. “I want them to be amazed by the tremendous personnel we have on the base and to see how eager they are for the information,” Allen stated. “This is one of the most beneficial services we are able to provide each year, and I really hope that people on both sides of the aisle can enjoy it.”

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

For confidential victim assistance DoD Safe Helpline (877) 995-5247

NAS Pensacola FFSC kicks off Sexual Assault Awareness Month By Rachel Phillips and Anne Ballensinger NASP Fleet and Family Support Center

What is Sexual Assault Awareness Month? Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) takes place every April and is observed across the country, in both civilian and military communities. One of the main goals is to increase awareness about the long-lasting and far-reaching after effects of sexual assault and to support the victims and survivors of sexual assault crimes. The month was first celebrated nationally in the United States in 2001. It was born out of the “Take Back the Night” movements of the 1970s when, in England, groups of women would get together and march the streets as a protest to the violence they encountered during their walks on public streets at night. The first “Take Back the Night” events in the United States were held in San Francisco and New York in 1978. Out of this movement, Sexual Assault Awareness Week was born in the late 1980s. Many sexual assault coalitions would plan their awareness events for April and by the 1990s there was enough national interest to designate an entire month to sexual assault awareness events. In 2000, the Resource Sharing Project and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center researched the various coalitions and found teal to be the preferred color and April the desired month for Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). This April, the Department of Defense observes its 10th annual SAAM with the theme “Live Our Values: Step Up to Stop Sexual Assault.” The theme reinforces personal and unit commitment to living the core values of professionals: integrity, trust, dignity, respect, fidelity and courage. Living our values motivates people to work toward an environment where values, commitment and respect define how people treat each other in every interaction. Stepping up reminds everyone that each person plays an important role to prevent and respond to sexual assault. As members of the military community, everyone must intervene to stop inappropriate behavior and report crimes. Stopping sexual assault is the goal. In order to prevent sexual assault, no member of the DoD community can tolerate, condone, or ignore an environment where sexist behaviors, sexual harassment or sexual assault are present. Everyone must do their part to ensure all service members are treated with dignity and respect. The NAS Pensacola community will present many awareness events across the installation, including: April 1, 10 a.m. – Sexual Assault Awareness Month proclamation signing at Fleet and Family Support Center. April 3, 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. – “Can I Kiss You?” Presentation at the NASC Auditorium (base theater), Bldg. 633. (See your SAPR command POC to reserve seats). April 8-10, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. – Sexual Assault Prevention and Response information tables at NAS Pensacola NEX. April 25 – The Second Annual Amazing SAPR Race (see your SAPR POC to sign up your team for this interactive event). For more information on SAAM or the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program, call the FFSC at 452-5990.

Navy announces SAAM 2014 theme From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – The Navy announced the 2014 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) theme of “Live Our Values: Step Up to Stop Sexual Assault” and issued guidance to focus efforts on awareness and prevention of sexual violence in NavAdmin 066/14 released March 20. The goal of the month is for individual commands to pause and reflect on what the Navy has accomplished over the past year with regard to sexual assault prevention and response and to look into the future as to how we can continue to eradicate this crime from our ranks. Commands are empowered to take ownership of this problem. “Navy’s recognition of SAAM 2014 is a component of our efforts in the 21st Century Sailor Office to build a resilient Navy community and will use the theme ‘Live Our Values: Step Up to Stop Sexual Assault’ to highlight bystander intervention and accountability,” said Rear Adm. Sean

Buck, director, 21st Century Sailor Office. “We’d like Sailors to take the first half of the month to reflect on the efforts we've put in place this past year and how we’ve tackled sexual assault. The second half of April will focus on Sailors dedicating themselves to be active bystanders – to step up and intervene in potentially destructive situations.” In addition to asking Sailors to sit down and talk about sexual assault prevention, commands are encouraged to organize any number of events to highlight the awareness and prevention of sexual assaults. Some of the suggested events include hanging ribbons on trees around base, hosting “meet your sexual assault response coordinator (SARC) and victim advocate” events, organizing skits at the local base theater and other such activities to raise awareness during the month of April. “In the past few months of traveling to meet the fleet, I’ve noticed that Sailors themselves are stepping up and taking charge,” said Buck. “I encourage you to continue to look out for your shipmates and step up to stop

sexual assault.” Sailors can also find information, references and resources at www. sapr. navy.mil to help them determine how they would like their individual command to observe this month. The website also includes resources for victims of sexual assault to reach out and get help. Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) is an important element of the readiness area of the 21st Century Sailor Office which consolidates a set of objectives and policies, new and existing, to maximize Sailor personal readiness, build resiliency and hone the most combat-effective force in the history of the Navy. The Department of the Navy is working aggressively to prevent sexual assaults, to support sexual assault victims and to hold offenders accountable. For more information, read NavAdmin 066/14 at www. npc. navy. mil and go to www.sapr.navy.mil and click on SAAM 2014. For more news from Chief of Naval Personnel, visit www. navy. mil/ local/ cnp/.

“We’ve created changes in our reporting, investigative, and adjudicative procedures – changes which have earned critical trust and resulted in increased reporting, which deepen our understanding. No one should serve in fear. Don’t be afraid to report if you’ve been a victim of sexual assault. Together, we will work to protect victims of sexual assault and hold perpetrators appropriately accountable.” – Rear Adm. Sean Buck, director, 21st Century Sailor Office, remarks to editorial board of San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego, Jan. 15, 2014.

CID’s Winters is NMCRS Volunteer of the Quarter By Sarah Overton NMCRS Publications Coordinator

A

student at NASP Corry Station Center for Information Dominance (CID) was recently named the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society’s (NMCRS) Pensacola office Volunteer of the Quarter for streamlining operations and driving sales at the NMCRS Corry Station Thrift Shop.

All shop proceeds are returned directly to NMCRS, so the significant increase in uniform sales directly benefits Sailors, Marines and their families. ITSN Bradley Winters visited the thrift shop’s military uniform store as a customer last fall, and was perplexed to discover a huge quantity of uniforms stored in garbage bags in a back closet, instead of stocked and accessible to customers. He made it his personal mission to sort and organize the bags of uniforms, neatly stock the uniform store with the additional merchandise, and provide expert assistance to Sailors who visited the store. His efforts led to an overnight spike in uniform sales. “Our uniform store has never looked so good, and we are absolutely thrilled with his initiative and dedication,” said Mark Harden, the Pensacola director of NMCRS. Harden called Winters an “exceptional example” of a volunteer Sailor. The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society relies heavily on volunteers to staff offices and thrift shops worldwide, but the society sees very few active-duty service members volunteer. Winters manages to help despite his demanding “C” School schedule. “Helping people just feels natural to me,” Winters said. “Volunteering at the thrift shop is so rewarding, because of the variety of people I am able to help. I see fellow students looking for everything from boots to covers, new pilots hunting for expensive insignias, and service families needing appropriate uniform items for a service member’s burial. Being able to help everyone meet their needs, whatever those needs may be, is deeply satisfying.” Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society volunteers in the Pensacola area provided more than 26,000 hours of service to Sailors, Marines and their families in 2013. To find out more about volunteering with NMCRS, contact Ginny Goodman at 452-2300.

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos are kicking of the 2014 season today, March 28, with a soldout exhibition game against the Cincinnati Reds. Quint Studer, owner of the Blue Wahoos, said the longstanding history of baseball in Pensacola was part of the inspiration for the match up.

players play in Pensacola. Having a double-A affiliate team in Pensacola, the highest level of professional baseball in the city’s history, continues to open up opportunities and experiences that were previously not available to the community,” Studer said. The game will also kick off the 2014 season ticket sales for the Blue Wahoos – the doubleA affiliate for the Reds. The

team is scheduled to play 140 regular-season contests between April 3 and Sept. 1, including 70 at home at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium. The first game of the regular season is scheduled at the stadium for 6:30 p.m. April 3 against the Tennessee Smokies. Season tickets packages are available at bluewahoos.com, at the stadium window (hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday) or by calling 934-8444. Individual tickets for the 2014 season range from $6 to $18. Monday through Saturday games will begin at 6:30 p.m. First pitch will be at 4 p.m. on Sundays.
