Rock N Fly rolls through NAS Pensacola Story, photos by MC2 Michael J. Lieberknecht Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC)

The roar of jet engines rising in the background as the National Anthem played on a single electric guitar mixed with the faint clip-clop of horse hooves could only mean one thing: the sixth annual Rock N Fly half marathon and 5K was about to begin onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. More than 1,300 runners participated in the March 23 event, dressed in costumes for the race. All proceeds from registered runners for the annual event are donated to charities, with a significant donation to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS). “This year’s country was able to exceed

$25,000,” Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) Executive Officer Capt. Mike Kohler, who served as the race organizer said. “Being able to participate in events such as this – and being able organize an event designed to provide assistance to an organization which does so much for our service members – showcases the great bond this base shares with the Pensacola-area community.” Every year, Rock N Fly has a different theme, correlating to a different genre of music. Previous iterations included the “Soul Train,” and the “Hippie Tour,” with last year’s “All American Tour” raised $20,000 for charities. Stemming from the former Blue Angel Marathon, an iconic road race event which was discon-

tinued after the devastation of Hurricane Ivan in 2004, the Rock N Fly half marathon has become one of the premier

road races in the South, sporting jumbotrons, two post-race bands, 10 music stations, DJ stations on the course, a ka-

What is a TRICARE ‘Qualifying Life Event?’ From Naval Hospital Pensacola

Every year during TRICARE Open Season, you can enroll in or change your TRICARE Prime or TRICARE Select health plan. But did you know that outside of TRICARE Open Season, you can only enroll in or make changes to your TRICARE Prime (including the U.S. Family Health Plan) or TRICARE Select plan following a Qualifying Life Event (QLE)?

A QLE is a certain change in your life, such as marriage, birth of a child, change of address or retirement from active duty. Different TRICARE health plan options may be available to you and your family members after a QLE.

IWTC Corry Station emphasizes motorcycle safety By IT1 Jasmine N. Hudson, IWTC Corry Station Public Affairs

When selecting a new vehicle, some service members decide they would rather ride on two wheels than four. While riding a motorcycle isn’t inherently dangerous, bikers face additional risks while out on the road. At Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station, experienced riders on staff address those risks and ensures riders are prepared. Throughout the year, the command’s Motorcycle Safety Program hosts rides and events to help military members become more comfortable during their rides. The program caters to all skill levels from lifelong

Options Following a QLE: Following a QLE, you and your family members have three options depending on your situation: • If you wish to continue your current coverage following a QLE and remain eligible for your current health plan, you don’t need to take action. Your coverage will continue uninterrupted. • If you want to make a change to your health plan enrollment, you have 90 days following the QLE to make any

eligible changes. • If you’re eligible for TRICARE but not enrolled in a TRICARE plan, you have 90 days following the QLE to enroll in a health plan. If you or your family members aren’t enrolled in a health plan and don’t enroll in one within 90 days of a QLE, you’ll only be eligible for care at a military hospital or clinic if space is available.

He greeted runners and provided information on the race and the post-race activities. As jets flew over and confetti blew in the wind, the race began. Runners, walkers, parents with strollers and many others took off down the course. Some were running for a new personal record while some seemed to just be enjoying the exercise and cool weather. Keeping with in the “Country Tour” theme, country music blared from huge speakers on the course and participants were given beef jerky and pickles at water stations. Following the run, live bands provided music while runners meandered around tents for food and drinks and took turns on a mechanical bull.

Examples of QLEs: What counts as a QLE? There are different types of TRICARE QLEs, including military changes, family changes, and governmentdirected changes. Many of them revolve around changes in job, location, or family status. Some common examples of TRICARE QLEs include: • Change in sponsor status that results in ineligibility to continue existing coverage. This includes retiring from active duty, separating from active duty, activating or deactivating. • Change in family composition. This includes getting married or divorced, giving birth, adopting a child, placement of a child by a court in a member’s home and more. • Moving. This includes moving to a new state, a new Zip code (plus four), a child moving away to college and more. • Losing sponsor or family member eligibility. This includes when a Retired Reserve member turns 60 or when the sponsor or any dependent turns age 65 and become eligible for Medicare. To see the full list of QLEs and examples, go to the Qualifying Life Events section on the TRICARE website. What to do following a QLE: With any QLE, the first step is to update your or your family member’s information in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). You must update DEERS before you contact TRICARE to make the change. Depending on your QLE, you may need to provide official documents, like a birth or marriage certificate, to update DEERS. Find your nearest ID card office and call

Vol. 83, No. 12

ahead to make an appointment or to verify which documents you need to bring. Once your change shows in DEERS, you can then enroll or change your TRICARE coverage. You may make eligible health plan enrollment changes online, by mail or by phone. Enrollment must be within 90 calendar days of the date of the QLE. Coverage starts on the QLE date. Enrollment fees, if required, begin on the QLE date, not the date the enrollment request is submitted. Once you enroll, your TRICARE regional contractor can confirm your enrollment. Making enrollment changes when you don’t have a QLE: If you and your family don’t experience a QLE, you can only enroll in or make changes to your TRICARE Prime or TRICARE Select health plan during the annual TRICARE Open Season. QLE and open season enrollment rules apply only to TRICARE Prime and TRICARE Select. Premiumbased plans (TRICARE Reserve Select, TRICARE Retired Reserve, TRICARE Young Adult and the Continued Health Care Benefit Program) offer continuous open enrollment throughout the year. However, keep in mind that certain QLEs may mean you or your family members may become eligible for TRICARE Prime or TRICARE Select (for example, when a Selected Reserve member is called to active duty for more than 30 days). Life changes are inevitable. When they occur, your TRICARE health options may change too. Knowing how to navigate QLEs with TRICARE can help you take command of your health and the health of your family this year. For more information about QLEs and the impact they may have on you or your family, visit TRICARE Qualifying Life Events.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer – Capt. Timothy Kinsella

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 biplane 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 one of the

Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 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, 314 North Spring St., Suite A, Pensacola, Fla. 32501, in the interest of military and ci-

Safety from page 1 Riders Course and have a motorcycle endorsement on their driver’s license. The first of these requirements has the biggest impact on safety and accident prevention. The Basic Riders Course teaches students important safety tips including the rules of the road, how to ride in a group and how to use hand gestures. Teaching personnel how to operate and ride their motorcycle safely reduces the likelihood of getting into accidents and can lessen the severity of potentially fatal accidents. The class is taught from the perspective that the rider has never ridden a motorcycle, so no license, motorcycle or skill level is required. “There is a lot of misinformation out there about this course. Many students think they need to have a license or a motorcycle already or that signing up for a class is difficult,” ITC William Kelley of IWTC Corry Station said. “None of that is true, and we try to make it easy and encouraging to sign up.” Kelley, the Motorcycle Safety Program coordinator, has been riding motorcycles for more than 30 years and currently owns three motorcycles. He is responsible for ensuring all current riders or prospective riders, both staff and students, attend the Basic Riders Course. He also facilitates the Advanced Riders Course. Since assuming the coordinator role, Kelly has organized four meet and

Majority of spouses satisfied with military life “These surveys allow us to identify areas of concern and understand what’s working, and more importantly, what’s not,” Stewart said. “This information also helps our internal leaders evaluate programs, address issues and gaps, and determine the need for new services.” Paul Rosenfeld, the director for DoD’s Center for Retention and Readiness, said positive results of the surveys included general spouse support for military members continuing to serve. Among reserve component spouses, for instance, 81 percent support continued service for their spouse. Regarding financial matters, 71 percent of active-duty spouses report being comfortable with their financial situation, while 68 percent of reserve-component spouses say the same thing. Of concern, Rosenfeld said, is that among activeduty spouses, 61 percent support continued military service for their spouse – that’s a drop from 68 percent in 2012. “Spouse support for service members staying on duty predicts actual member retention,” Rosenfeld said. Other points of concern revealed by the surveys are high levels of “loneliness” reported by spouses when military members are deployed and unemployment rates for active-duty military spouses. Among active-duty spouses, Rosenfeld said, unemployment sits at 24 percent. Among the spouses of junior enlisted members in the E-1 through E-4 pay grades, he said, that

By C. Todd Lopez Defense.gov WASHINGTON – The latest survey of active-duty and reserve-component service members’ spouses shows the spouses are, by and large, happy with the military lifestyles they lead. Defense Department officials briefed reporters at the Pentagon yesterday on the results of the surveys, which were conducted in 2017. The survey of active-duty spouses and a similar survey of National Guard and Reserve spouses showed similar results, they said. Among activeduty spouses, 60 percent claimed they are “satisfied” with their military way of life. Among the reserve components, 61 percent were satisfied. While both surveys showed a slight decrease from the last previous survey, conducted in 2015, the 2015 and 2017 results both were higher than results from the same question on the 2008 survey, officials noted. James N. Stewart, performing the duties of the undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, told reporters the surveys cover areas including satisfaction with military life, spouse employment, deployment and reintegration. Questions also touch on issues such as finances and the impact of deployments on families and military children. Results are used to inform decisions about how the U.S. military provides services to families, he said.

number sits at 29 percent. When it comes to military spouses, Rosenfeld said, family is most important, and children top the list. “Child care continues to be a key need for active-duty families,” he said, adding that 42 percent of active-duty spouses with children under age 6 report regularly using child care. It’s 63 percent for spouses who are employed. Carolyn S. Stevens, director of DoD’s Office of Military Family Readiness Policy, said some 40 percent of military members have children. Of those children, she said, about 38 percent are under the age of 6. Past survey results showed that availability of child care – in particular, hours of operation – had been an issue for military families, Stevens said. Where hours of operation for child care may have affected service members’ ability to do their mission, hours were expanded, she added. Subsequent survey results show that now, among those who don’t make use of child care on installations, only 2 percent say it’s due to hours of operation, she said. “We believe, then, that those responses are a confirmation that we’ve listened to a concern, that we’ve responded to that concern, and that in fact we’ve hit the mark,” she said. Also of concern when it comes to child care is cost and availability. About 45 percent of respondents on the survey say cost of child care is a problem for military families, Stevens said. She noted that in some situations, appropriated funds can be used to lower the cost of child care for families who

use installation child care. And for some families, she said, fee assistance programs can be used to lower costs for those who use community-based child care. Still, Stevens acknowledged, that’s not possible for every family who needs it, and more work needs to be done. “We are unable to provide fee assistance to all of our families, and we continue to see this as an issue that requires more attention and focus as we try to find solutions for families,” she said. For the 2017 survey, about 45,000 active-duty spouses were asked to participate, and about 17 percent of those responded. Among reserve-component spouses, 55,000 were invited to participate, with a response rate of 18 percent. Invitations to participate in the 2019 survey went out to reserve component spouses in January. An invitation will be sent to active-duty spouses in May. A.T. Johnston, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for military community and family policy, said the results from the 2017 survey, and the now ongoing 2019 survey, will continue to be used to improve quality of life for military families. “The research information we receive guides me and my team to ensure we provide the tools, information and services that military families need to be successful, fulfilled, and able to manage the challenges they may encounter during military service,” Johnston said.

DoN Fiscal Year 2020 Budget By Rear Adm. Randy Crites Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Budget

T

he FY 2020 budget request for the Department of the Navy (DoN) was submitted recently to Congress. The $205.6 billion request (Base + Overseas Contingency Operations) represents a 4.8 percent increase from the FY19 enacted budget. This budget submission is strategy-driven and provides the resources required to strengthen the DoN in this new era of great power competition. This year’s budget submission reflects a balanced and holistic approach to expanding DoN’s competitive advantage by supporting a bigger, better and more ready Navy and Marine Corps team. To meet demand signals from combatant commanders, expand global influence and prevail in any warfighting contingency, we must increase capacity. To maintain our competitive advantage for the future fight, we must invest in superior and innovative technologies that increase lethality. And to recapture strategic momentum, we must be ready to compete in ways that are agile, unpredictable, cost-imposing and sustainable. Our nation depends on our naval force to rise to global challenges and protect the American homeland. To maintain dominance in a dynamic threat environment,

we must continue to build a bigger, better, networked, talented, agile and more ready fleet. While the FY19 and FY18 budgets focused on achieving wholeness and restoring readiness, the FY20 President’s Budget (PB20) request aligns people, capabilities and processes to better position the Navy and Marine Corps to compete, deter and win. We accomplish this by maintaining our focus on six specific dimensions: • Building a bigger fleet – We are building toward a 355-ship navy. • Building a better fleet – We need to accelerate and invest in game-changing capabilities. • Building a networked fleet – Information sharing is a force multiplier. • Building a talented fleet – Our people have always been

our greatest advantage. • Building an agile fleet – The Navy must work as part of the joint and combined force. • Building a ready fleet – A bigger, better, networked, talented and agile fleet contributes to potential naval power, but actual naval power must include the critical dimension of readiness. In order to deliver the capacity, agility and sustainability needed to win the high-end fight, the FY20 budget requests funding for more ships, submarines, aircraft and people. The budget provides for a deployable battle force of 301 ships in FY20 including 11 aircraft carriers and 10 big deck amphibious ships that serve as the foundation of our carrier strike groups and amphibious ready groups. This year’s budget request funds 12 newconstruction battle force ships

in FY20, including one aircraft carrier (CVN), three Nuclear Attack Submarines (SSNs), three guided-missile destroyers (DDGs), one small surface combatant (FFG(X)), two Fleet Replenishment Oilers (T-AOs) and two Towing, Salvage and Rescue ships (T-ATSs), as well as two Large Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs); and, 55 battle force ships/10 Large USVs across the Future Years Defense Program (FYDP). Funding for the best platforms and technologies must be met with investments in personnel by recruiting top talent, providing them with training, and delivering quality of life improvements for our Sailors, Marines and civilians. Since investing in our personnel enables the strength needed to compete and win, the FY20 budget proposes a 3.1 percent pay raise and provides funding for key end strength increases. In addition to being bigger, we must be better. To ensure our success fighting tomorrow’s conflicts and deal with the re-emergence of great power competition, we must invest in superior, innovative and leap-ahead technologies to increase lethality. As such, Research & Development funding increases this year by 9.5 percent from FY19 to FY20. To maintain our competitive advantage, this year’s budget increase targets the development of longer-range and hypersonic weapons, unmanned aircraft and vessels, artificial intelligence and additional capabilities aligned with the Future Force. Our investments in capabilities and capacity must be complemented by increased readi-

ness to enable the Navy, as part of the Joint Force, to maintain superiority in key maritime regions and promote U.S. interests globally. To increase readiness, this year’s budget requests funding to continue on the current path toward reducing the backlog of deferred readiness and modernization. It invests in our industrial base and infrastructure, which is a key enabler of Navy readiness. And, it supports active measures to reform business processes and drive efficiencies to increase speed, improve value and support the warfighter. Installation readiness is another key contributor to warfighting readiness, and PB20 requests funding for 22 military construction projects, including six overseas projects for Forward Deployed Naval Forces, as well as covers the remaining costs of three FY19 Military Construction Projects fully authorized but incrementally funded by Congress. While our competition leverages all available resources on behalf of compromising American maritime dominance, we must continue to accelerate our efforts in all domains to stay ahead. The President’s Budget request for FY20 takes a holistic and balanced approach to enabling a bigger, better and more ready Navy and Marine Corps team that is prepared to deter and compete against those who seek to threaten American prosperity and strategic influence. The investments outlined in the FY20 budget strengthen the capacity, capabilities and readiness of the Navy and Marine Corps team in accordance with the National Defense Strategy.

Women in the Navy: WAVES to wins

By SN Tatyana Freeman USS Geroge Washington (CVN 73) NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – There is an 87-year gap between the formation of the United States Navy in 1775 and the first documented involvement of women in the Navy in 1862. However, since 1862, women in the United States Navy have continued to break barriers and make lasting contributions to the naval service. Best put by American general, and later the 34th President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower, “During the time I have had (women) under my command, they have met every test and task assigned to them…their contributions in efficiency, skill, spirit and determination are immeasurable.” In 1862, the Sisters of the Holy Cross served aboard USS Red Rover, the Navy’s first hospital ship with a crew of 12 officers

and 35 enlisted. They served, officially, as the first women in the Navy. In 1908, Congress established a more permanent place for women in the Navy by creating the Navy Nurse Corps. The surgeon general selected Esther Voorhees Hasson as the superintendent of the Navy Nurse Corps because of her extensive experience as an Army contract nurse aboard the United States Army Hospital Ship (USAHS) Relief during the Spanish-American War in 1898. Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels authorized the enlistment of women into the Navy March 19, 1917, during World War I. Loretta Perfectus Walsh become the first woman to enlist in the Navy two days later. Eventually, 11,000 female yeomen, popularly called “yeomanettes,” began work in the nation’s capital, fulfilling the jobs of not only yeomen, but draftsmen, interpret-

ers, couriers and translators. Additionally, female Navy nurses continued to treat patients in hospitals, on ships, and overseas. During World War II, Navy nurses continued their service at naval shore commands, hospital ships, field hospitals, and in airplanes. Lt. Ann Bernatitus of the Navy Nurse Corps became the first female and first naval servicemember to receive the Legion of Merit Award. She was commended for maintaining her position on the front lines in the Philippines while rendering continuous and devoted service during a Japanese siege on the Philippine islands. Eleven other nurses were taken as Prisoners of War (PoW) from 1941 to1945 and received the Bronze Star for their heroism. On July 30, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a law creating Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES). Lt. Cmdr. Mildred H. McAfee became the first director of WAVES and eventually the first female line officer. Soon after, in 1943, Grace Hopper joined the United States Navy and became one of the most wellknown women in military history for her achievements in computer science and programming. In December 1983, she was promoted to the rank of commodore in a White House ceremony. The rank was merged with that of rear admiral two years later, so she became Rear Adm. Hopper. She also has a ship named after her, the Arleigh Burke-class guidedmissile destroyer USS Hopper (DDG 70).

By 1944, full military rank was granted to members of the Navy Nurse Corps, and Sue Dauser, director of the Navy Nurse Corps, received a full commission to the rank of captain, the first woman to do so. After World War II, the Women’s Armed Forces Integration Act of 1948 made it possible for women to serve in the peacetime military with some restrictions, and in October of the same year, the first eight women were commissioned into the peacetime Navy. In 1959, Yeoman Anna DerVartanian became the first female master chief and the first female E-9 across all branches of the United States military. In 1961, Lt. Charlene T. Juneson reported for duty aboard USS General W.A. Mann (AP-112), becoming the first WAVES officer to be ordered to shipboard duty. In 1972, Capt. Arlene Duerk became the Navy’s first female admiral, Roseanne Roberts became the first female helicopter captain, the first women were trained at Fire Fighting School, Naval Station, Treasure Island, San Francisco, Calif., and USS Sanctuary (AH-17) became the first ship with a mixed male and female crew. Feb. 22, 1974, Lt.j.g. Barbara Allen Rainey received her wings of gold, becoming the first female designated as a naval aviator. In 1990, Capt. Marsha J. Evans assumed command of Naval Station, Treasure Island, San Francisco, becoming the first woman to command a naval station.

Additionally, Lt. Cmdr. Darlene Iskra became the first woman to command a ship when she assumed command of USS Opportune (ARS-41). In 2008, Capt. Barbara A. Sisson retired after a 28-year pioneering career in the Navy Civil Engineer Corps. Among her many accomplishments, she was the first female instructor at Civil Engineer Officer’s School. In 2010, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus directed that women would be assigned to Ohio-class submarines, marking yet another barrier broken by pioneering women. In 2014, Michelle Howard became the first woman to become a four-star admiral, and Rear Adm. Margaret Kibben became the first female chief of Navy chaplains. These notable landmarks in history, and the women who paved the way for them, are honored by all prior and currently serving members. March is set aside as Women’s History Month to pay homage to their hard work, dedication, and service to country. The crew of USS George Washington (CVN 73) salutes all military women, past and present, this month and all months.

Whiting’s AMO School graduates 19 students By Ens. Chase Dowell NASWF Public Affairs Office

N

aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) is widely known for training future naval aviators, but many don’t know that it is also home to the Aviation Maintenance Officer (AMO) School. Consisting of two courses, AMO school encompasses the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP) Indoctrination course and the NAMP managers course. The purpose of the 58-day NAMP indoctrination course is to train newly commissioned or designated aviation ground officers, Marine Corps, DoD-sponsored civilians and international officers with little (two years or less) or no aviation maintenance background. These officers are prospective members of organizational or intermediate maintenance organizations with technical information and knowledge of managerial responsibilities and the administrative duties required to perform at an entry-level aircraft maintenance position. The purpose of the 23-day NAMP managers course is to provide officers with significant (two years or more) aviation maintenance background with technical information and knowledge of the managerial responsibilities and the administrative duties required to direct an aircraft maintenance activity. The course also includes instruction for using the supply system interface. On March 7, 19 students

from class 19040 completed AMO school. Graduates received orders to their first ship where they will take their newly-learned skills and mold them into becoming leaders of aviation maintenance. Once aboard their ships, they will work toward their Aviation Maintenance Duty Officer (AMDO) designation. Aviation maintenance duty officers with the career designator 1520 develop, establish, and implement maintenance and mate-

Air Station Pensacola, spoke to the graduating class about what their future holds. Schneider emphasized the importance of respect for all. “To be successful JOs, you need to always remember the golden rule,” Schneider said. He also encouraged prior enlisted Sailors to “remember

where you came from” and to use that experience and knowledge to help your peers and subordinates. CNATT is responsible for quality training and education of enlisted and officers across the career continuum of learning for aviation maintenance.

Military children make up a very special part of our nation’s population. Although young, these brave sons and daughters stand in steadfast support of their military parents. To honor their unique contributions and sacrifices on behalf of our country, each April is designated the Month of the Military Child.

The Month of the Military Child: April 2019 From U.S. Dept. of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA)

A

pril is designated as the Month of the Military Child (MoMC), underscoring the important role military children play in the armed forces community. Sponsored by the Department of Defense Military Community and Family Policy, the Month of the Military Child is a time to applaud military families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make and the challenges they overcome. The Month of the Military Child is part of the legacy left by former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger. He established the Defense Department commemoration in 1986. DoDEA joins the Department of Defense and the military community in celebrating April as the Month of the Military Child. In DoDEA communities around the world, our most essential strategic imperatives are: establishing an educational system that progressively builds the college and career readiness of all DoDEA students; and establishing the organizational capacity to operate more effectively and efficiently as a model, unified school system. We aim to challenge each student to maximize his or her potential and to excel academically, socially, emotionally and physically for life, college and career readiness. Throughout the month, DoDEA will encourage schools to plan special events to honor military children and have administrators and principals incorporate the themes of this month into their every day duties and responsibilities. These efforts and special events will stress the importance of providing children with quality services and support to help them succeed in the mobile military lifestyle.

Word Search: ‘Birds’

‘Military Brat:’ Do you know where the term comes from? By Katie Lange DoD News, Defense Media Activity

We’ve all heard the term “military brat” before. It pertains to those children who grew up in military families. “Brats” wear the name like a badge of honor, often because of the moves, stressors and cultural experiences that make them more resilient than their civilian counterparts. But outside of the military, the word brat is often considered derogatory. So it made me wonder – where did the term “military brat” originate? To find out, I reached out to the folks at National Defense University (NDU) Libraries, who did some research for me. It turns out the origin of the term is still pretty unclear, but there are a lot of interesting theories behind it, and most of them originate in Britain. Since we couldn’t find anything definitive, I figured I’d tell you about some of those theories. BRAT could stand for “British Regiment Attached Traveler”: I first found this theory published in a 2011 blog by retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Michael M. Dunn, who was the president of the Air Force Association at the time. Dunn, who had also been the president of NDU, had asked a researcher to find the origin of the term. One came through, discovering a book published in 1921 that attributed the saying to the British army. It explained “BRAT” as a status standing for British Regiment Attached Traveler, and it was assigned to families who were able to

Gosling Games Color Me: ‘For freedom’

travel abroad with a soldier. Eventually, it just referred to military children. But the term stuck, and was adopted in many places around the world, including in the U.S. Born Rough And Tough? Researchers at NDU also told me they were able to trace “Army brat” back to 1942, where it appeared in a military slang publication called “The War Dictionary.” It defined the term specifically in regards to the children of Army officers, and it said the term was one of endearment. Of course, over the years, there have been more guesses. Many often say brat stands for “born rough and tough,” or “born raised and traveled.” A contraction for ‘Barrack Rat?’ Dr. Grace Clifton, a professor at Open University in the U.K., has done research with the U.S. Army’s Dr. Becky Powell into the origins of the term and said the term “barrack rat” was also used at the end of the 18th century in the U.K. when discussing stories about the lives of children in army barracks, so it’s possible that the two words were turned into a contraction to create the term brat. “Barrack rat” also surfaced in “A Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English.” It cited the book “Old Soldier Sahib” written in 1936 by Frank Richards, a British soldier who detailed his experiences while stationed in India and Burma during the early 20th century. In that book, Richards said “children born in barracks were referred to as ‘barrack-rats:’ It was a wonder to me how the poor kids survived the heat, and they were washed-out little things.”

CIWT recognizes 2018 Civilians of the Year By MC2 Taylor Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training

T

he Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) announced its 2018 Civilians of the Year (CoY), March 14. CIWT selected Richard Berger, training director for Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Monterey as supervisor CoY; Alfred Zemke, information technology (IT) specialist for IWTC San Diego as non-supervisor CoY; and Mario Vulcano, course manager and primary instructor for the Cryptologic Warfare Officer Basic Course (CWOBC) at IWTC Corry Station as Civilian Instructor of the Year. “Our CIWT domain is comprised of incredibly talented and professional people, and I’m grateful how our Navy civilians play a vital role in the execution of our mission and in our warfighting effectiveness for the Navy the nation needs,” CIWT’s Executive Director Jim Hagy said. “I greatly appreciate their dedication and service to not only this command, but this great nation.” Throughout 2018, Berger managed every aspect of foreign language training for 931 officer and enlisted students across 17 Defense Language

Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) programs. His efforts led to IWTC Monterey’s first-place graduate proficiency ranking among the four military services at DLIFLC. In addition to his primary duties, Berger oversaw various programs designed to measure student academic performance, Navy Military Training, physical readiness and teamwork. He significantly improved the command’s peer-to-peer mentoring program, directly leading to the command’s improved academic performance in 2018. “It’s always nice to have your efforts formally recognized, but it will never be the reason I come to work every day. For me it’s having a sense of purpose and the satisfaction of being part of a great team,” Berger said. “It was my privilege to serve in the Navy, and now as a Department of the Navy civilian, with quality people who were fun to be around.” As an IT specialist for IWTC San Diego, Zemke served as the lead technician for

the preparation and installation of the Distributed Common Ground System-Navy (DCGS-N) Block II system, a critical system upgrade for the schoolhouse. He contributed more than 100 hours towards the successful upgrades to the command’s other training support networks, including the Joint Worldwide Intelligence System and Navy Training Network. His work allowed students to receive training on platforms with the capabilities

matching those systems they would work with in the fleet. He created 36 standard operating procedures that allowed for greater continuity of knowledge and decreased downtime during incidents and outages. “I appreciate and I am honored to receive this recognition,” Zemke said. “I am truly blessed to be part of the extremely talented team of professionals at IWTC San Diego.” Vulcano provided 1,461 hours of technical training to six classes throughout 2018. His efforts enabled new accession cryptologic warfare officers to fully grasp the concepts needed for success in followon assignments worldwide. As a supervisor for the course, he personally contacted more than 350 former CWOBC trainees to identify training gaps in the current curriculum and identify additional training requirements. Vulcano incorporates his personal initiative called “Invest in Tomorrow’s Leaders Today” into the CWOBC curriculum. He coordinated more than 70 virtual teleconferences and visits from senior information warfare leaders to explain real-world examples of signals intelligence and cyber operations. “I am honored and humbled to receive this award,” Vulcano said. “Throughout the years instructing, I have come to learn that delivering quality instruction is a team event. Here at Corry Station, we leverage our

talents, classrooms and labs to provide the best possible training our service members.” Capt. Nick Andrews, CIWT’s commanding officer, offered his thanks and congratulations to the Civilians of the Year, sharing, “The CIWT team is successful because each of our domain members is committed to our job of preparing Sailors to fight and win in the arena of information warfare. I’m extremely proud of the dedicated hard work and professionalism demonstrated not only by our Civilians of the Year, but by all CIWT domain personnel.” With four schoolhouse commands, two detachments, and training sites throughout the United States and Japan, CIWT is recognized as Naval Education and Training Command’s top learning center for the past three years. Training over 21,000 students every year, CIWT delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services. CIWT also offers more than 200 courses for cryptologic technicians, intelligence specialists, information systems technicians, electronics technicians, and officers in the information warfare community.

Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victims to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/ SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 2934561.

Pensacola Food Truck Festival returns with good food

People gather for the Pensacola Food Truck Festival in support of Habitat for Humanity and good food. This year’s festival will take place April 5 and 6 at Community Maritime Park.

Story, photo From www.pensacolafoodtruckfest.org

Pensacola Habitat for Humanity welcomes families, foodies and Pensacola Habitat supporters to its annual Food Truck Festival in celebration of the community we serve. The fourth-annual Pensacola Food Truck Festival will take place April 5 and 6 at Community Maritime Park. Food trucks featuring dishes from a variety of cooking styles and flavors come together for this event to benefit Pensacola Habitat for Humanity. The event features an eclectic mix of

C a t c h

food truck signature dishes, live music, a food truck tasting competition and more. The event will start on Friday evening, an “appetizer” to the main event, and feature several food trucks and a band. Saturday will be a foodies’ paradise as you wind your way around dozens of food trucks and listen to live music. Since 1981, Pensacola Habitat for Humanity has served the residents of Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, working alongside dedicated volunteers to build high-quality, energy efficient, affordable homes, which are purchased by

qualified homeowners with a zero percent APR mortgage through a Homebuyer Program. Pensacola Habitat serves the community in other ways as well: the Neighborhood Revitalization department helps neighborhoods organize and improve existing homes and neighborhoods; homeownership courses provided by the Family Services department ensure every family that goes through the homeowner program starts their journey on the right foot as soon as they’re handed the keys and the ReStore accepts gentlyused, quality goods, diverting tons of home furnishings from local landfills. Whether you’re planning an outing with the family or meeting some friends for food, your attendance at the Food Truck Festival represents your investment in local families and a healthier, more sustainable community. Everyone is welcome to join in the food and the fun. Festival hours are April 5, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and April 6, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information about this event, visit www.pensacolafoodtruckfest.org.
