CIWT and IWTC Corry Station leaders mentor, inspire youth on the diamond Story, photos by Glenn Sircy Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

CMDCM Mike Bates and Cmdr. Chad Smith not only inspire and mentor Sailors on a daily basis, both are also very active in shaping local children through youth sports. Bates, the command master chief for the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT), and Smith, the commanding officer for Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station, are currently coaches for youth baseball teams for the Perdido Bay Youth Sports Association. Bates coaches the 12-year-old and under Brewers, and Smith coaches the 14-year-old and under Royals. Bates also serves as the 10-year-old and under commissioner. They both agree coaches can be enormously influential in the lives of children. Children spend many hours with their coaches; listen to coaches; coaches are

role models; coaches can fill a parenting role; and coaches have the power to shape lives. As coaches, Bates and Smith bring an extensive background in competitive sports and military order and discipline to their teams. Most importantly, they know this is an opportunity to positively influence young lives, and for that reason, both take their coaching positons very seriously. “We have a golden opportunity to teach leadership, compassion, strength and courage through our coaching positions,” Bates said. “My goal is to positively inspire these kids, helping them become successful leaders of tomorrow.” Some attribute baseball coaching is 15 percent sport knowledge and 85 percent people skills. Baseball coaches with the whole package have a good grasp of some basic coaching strategies and people skills. They may not be an expert in any particular area or the X’s and O’s or giving baseball signs but coaches with the whole

Navy COOL announces new ‘Best Sources’ for USCG license training By MC2 Taylor Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training

Navy Credentialing Opportunities Online (COOL), in partnership with Military Sealift Command (MSC), announced “best sources” training opportunities available to Sailors, March 19. These courses can be used for gap/delta training to help prepare Sailors, officers and enlisted, for USCG credentials. The USCG credentials can be funded for eligible Navy COOL. Navy COOL provides active duty and reserve Sailors, whether forward deployed, Baseball from page 1 Sailor, both Bates and Smith are “whole package” coaches, armed with the right people and teaching skills. “Parents want their youth sports coaches to be positive role models for their children,” Inman said. “Baseball parents are trusting the coaches to help shape their kids, and both Mike Bates and Chad Smith are the ‘whole package’ coaches.” To kick off the 2018 season, the Perdido Bay Youth Sports Association held a parade of teams opening-season ceremony at Wahoo Stadium, March 23. During the ceremony, Smith was selected to throw out the opening pitch of the season. Smith was unaware until the event and was honored for the opportunity to not only throw out the first pitch of the season, but to be entrusted with coaching youth. “I am extremely honored and grateful for this opportunity to

Pantomiming parasites during spring break By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

A

fter months of relentless snow in Germany, we were headed to Spain for spring break. We had splurged on a rental house along Costa Brava, with breathtaking views up the wazoo. What could possibly go wrong? We showed up at the Stuttgart Airport right on time. When called to board, we cattle-prodded our three kids through the tight line up. Excited to escape the frigid confines of Patch Barracks, I envisioned pitchers of sangria, casual tapas dinners and lounging seaside without a care in the world. Then, I saw something moving on Anna’s forehead. A tiny bug crawled along her hairline. Horrified, I instinctively grabbed her, pinching the bug between my thumb and finger. The girls had been complaining of itchy scalps, but I had thought it was dry skin. “Boarding passes, please,” the Lufthansa rep demanded. Francis produced our tickets and herded us through the gate, wondering why I looked like I

had seen a ghost. With the unidentified beast clamped between my thumb and forefinger, I threw myself into our row of airplane seats, peered down at my pinched fingers and slowly released my grasp. The speck was motionless. Was it a harmless flake of skin? A fragment of leaf? A sesame seed from our morning bagels? Had I panicked for no reason? Silly me. Just then, I squealed as I spied six wriggling legs. Francis was irritable – his usual mood during family travel – so he was annoyed by me waving frantically across the isle. He leaned over and barked, “What is it, for criminy’s sake?” “Lice!” I whisper-screamed,

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers, including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeatandpotatoesoflife.com. pointing at Anna’s head. No one in our family had ever had lice, so the idea of our fifthgrade daughter being infested with parasites was terrifying. I spent the rest of our flight picking at Anna like a crazed chimpanzee. Of course, Lilly had lice too. Debarking the plane, I peered into Francis’ eyes and enun-

ciated desperately, “FIND A PHARMACY. NOW.” Francis sputtered through the streets of Girona in our rental car, searching for a green neon cross, the universal sign of European pharmacies. “There’s one,” I exclaimed, pointing ahead, but there was no where to park on the busy street. “Jump out! I’ll circle back and pick you up!” Francis yelled, and I leapt toward the green cross. I flung the door open and lunged breathlessly into the tiny establishment. Three startled Spaniards stared back at me. In Europe, patrons ask the pharmacist for most products, which are located behind the counter. (A year later, this custom proved particularly embarrassing when I was constipated during a trip to Venice.) “My daughters have lice!” I blurted to the pharmacist. His puzzled look reminded me that I was in Spain. Like a bad mime, I pantomimed, supplementing with the few Spanish words I remembered from 6th grade. “My niños!” I pleaded. I scratched my head violently, pinched an invisible bug, and grimaced. “Un poquito,” I growled, then hopped around, gnashing my teeth and clawing at the air like a giant, marauding louse.

Swallowing a giggle, the pharmacist said, “Si señora, un momento por favor.” An hour later, Anna and Lilly were in the rental house bathtub, their heads in frothy turbans of shampoo and shower caps from the lice kits the pharmacist had sold me. Despite our initial panic, we did not let those lousy lice ruin our spring break. To my relief, I learned that an estimated six to 12 million infestations occur each year in the U.S. among children 3 to 11 years of age. Head lice are most commonly spread through direct hair-to-hair contact. Infestation has nothing to do with cleanliness or environment. Although it may take several treatments and multiple sessions of combing and nitpicking, lice can be eradicated in a couple of weeks. And, it is quite common for children to get head lice during school breaks, because that is when children have the most direct contact during selfies or sleep overs. That week in Spain, we added nit-picking to our daily repertoire of sangria, tapas and breathtaking views up the wazoo. Spring break was not as care-free as I had envisioned, but sometimes, you have to take the good with the bugs.

Navy continues, expands aviation bonus program From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – The Navy announced March 20 the Active Component (AC) fiscal year 2018 Aviation Department Head Retention Bonus (ADHRB) and Aviation Command Retention Bonus (ACRB) and the expansion of Aviation Incentive Pay (AvIP) for both AC and the Reserve Component aviators in NAVADMIN 065/18. The AC Aviation Bonus (AvB) program, consisting of the ADHRB and ACRB, incentivizes highly-talented, hardworking, career-minded Naval Aviators and Naval Flight Officers (NFO) to choose to remain on active duty. “Our bonus and flight pay programs have proven successful in the past at retaining our best and brightest aviators,” Capt. Michael Baze, head of aviation career management at Naval Personnel Command, said. “However, these programs have remained essentially unchanged for well over a decade, and are beginning to lose their effectiveness in the face of growing competition for talent. “We asked aviators of all ranks how we should modernize and improve moving forward,” Baze added. “Aviators reported they wanted our programs to be more flexible, merit based, and competitive with

civilian opportunities. We took that feedback seriously, incorporating each of these elements in the program changes you see here today.” AC ADHRB has undergone substantial reform. Capable and dedicated department heads are vital to mission effectiveness and represent the crucial link between senior leadership and junior personnel. The eligibility timeline has shifted from the expiration of the aviator’s winging service obligation to their lieutenant commander board. Aviators can choose from a five-year contract or a three-year contract. Members who take the five-year contract early will receive a higher annual amount than members who take a five-year later or a three-year contract. AC ACRB is designed to retain those officers with the talent and command experience in primary warfighting missions that are critical for the future of

Navy service. The new ACRB shifts from a two-year, $36,000 total contract to a three-year, $100,000 total contract. Members must select after screening for commander command and the obligation takes them through 22 years of service or the completion of their postcommander command tour, whichever is longer. For AvIP, Navy is establishing expanded rates for aviators who screen and serve in career milestone billets. Aviators who do not screen or serve in milestone billets, but continue to

qualify for flight pay, will continue to receive flight pay, but at a different rate than aviators in milestone positions. “Aviation has taken a holistic approach that synchronizes targeted increases in both flight pay and bonuses in a mutually supportive fashion with achievement of major leadership milestones,” Baze said. “The end state will be a judiciously applied, merit based, more competitive continuum of pay for our top aviators from department head through post-commander command.

Coupled with a range of nonmonetary incentive improvements we are making, these changes will go a long way towards helping us retain the warfighting talent we need into the future.” For more information on eligibility visit www.public.navy. mil/bupers-npc/officer/Detailing/aviation/OCM/Pages/ ACCP.aspx.

NAVFAC SE participates in Engineering Career Day By Sue Brink NAVFAC Southeast Public Affairs

Jacksonville, Fla. (NNS) – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast civilians and military personnel participated in the Jacksonville District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) 2018 Engineering Career Day recently in Jacksonville, Fla. The annual event introduces high school students to engineering as a career by presenting “hands-on” activities, providing interaction with engineers from the government, private industry and several university representatives, as well as providing a road map on how to become an engineer. “The teams are given a problem that incorporates math, science and engineering principles,” Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast Chief Engineer Jack McCarthy said. “They bring their completed projects to the Army Corps offices and compete with one another based on aesthetics, quality of construction, engineering soundness and esprit de corps. I have been honored to serve as a judge at this highly competitive competition for the last seven years.”

More than 90 students from 10 different public and private schools in Northeast and Central Florida attended the event. The day-long competition is co-sponsored by the Jacksonville District USACOE and the Society of American Engineers (SAME) and has been for 16 years. The event is one of the major events of Northeast Florida Engineers Week. The event challenged student teams to compete in building and entering a take home project, completing a surprise project assigned the day of the event and completing a trivia challenge. For this year’s theme, “Power of the Wind,” students had to design and fabricate a portable wind turbine that could harness wind energy and convert it to useful power. Volunteer judges tested the projects by timing and measuring the distance the turbine was able to raise a weight. The surprise project required students to design and construct a structure out of straws and tape, which could support the weight of a tennis ball. The groups were judged on how long the structure could remain standing, when placed in front of a fan. One of the eighth grade teams, from The Weiss School, located in Palm Beach, Fla., is currently work-

ing with SpaceX to deliver and monitor certain types of bacteria, to determine if they can exist in space. “There are a bunch of smart kids out there,” McCarthy said. “It was a pleasure to work with them.” The competition promotes Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). STEM is a national education program focused on preparing the workforce of tomorrow by encouraging students today to focus on these areas of study. The hope is the competition will inspire the scholars’ efforts and energies toward careers in STEM fields in the future. During the event, NAVFAC Southeast Facilities Engineering Acquisition Division (FEAD) Director Lt. Cmdr. Richard Buechel and Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Assistant Public Works Officer Lt. j.g. Frank Sysko spoke to students about which engineering disciplines they were considering, what colleges they might be thinking of attending or if they were thinking about a military career. The information booth they set up provided the students information on military and civilian STEM careers with the Navy. For more news from NAVFAC, visit www.navy.mil/ local/navfachq/.

Games help recruit unmanned systems operators

An Air Force officer operates a computer game designed to aid the U.S. Navy in discovering future operators for its remotely operated unmanned vehicles (UxV). The project, titled StealthAdapt, is being developed by the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute and Adaptive Immersion Technologies, a software company, and is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research.

ARLINGTON, Va. – Can a video game help the U.S. Navy find future operators for its remotely operated,unmanned vehicles (UxV), popularly called drones? To find out, the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute and Adaptive Immersion Technologies, a software company, are developing a computer game to identify individuals with the right skills to be UxV operators. The project, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), is called StealthA-

dapt. “The Navy currently doesn’t have a test like this to predict who might excel as UxV operators,” Lt. Cmdr. Peter Walker, a program officer in ONR’s Warfighter Performance Department said. “This fast-paced, realistic computer simulation of UxV missions could be an effective recruitment tool.” Since the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq began, UxV have played ever-larger roles in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and other missions. Consequently, there is an increasing need for well-trained UxV operators.

In recent years, the U.S. Air Force established its own formal screening process for remotely piloted aircraft operators, and the Marine Corps designated an unmanned aviation systems (UAS) career path for its ranks. The Navy, however, does not have an official selection and training pipeline specifically for its UxV operators, who face challenges unique to the service. For UAS duty, the Navy has taken aviators who already earned their wings, provided on-the-job, UAS-specific training and placed them in temporary positions.

However, this presents challenges. It is costly and time-consuming to add more training hours and it takes aviators away from their manned aircraft duties. Finally, the cognitive skills needed for successful manned aviation can vary from those needed for unmanned operators. StealthAdapt is designed to address this issue. It consists of a cognitive test, personality assessment and biographical history assessment. The cognitive exam actually is the game-based component of the system and takes the form of a search-and-rescue mission. Each player’s assignment is to rescue as many stranded friendly forces as possible, within a preset time limit, while avoiding fire from hostile forces. If that is not stressful enough, players must simultaneously monitor chatbased communications, make sure they have enough fuel and battery power to complete missions, memorize and enter authentication codes required for safe rescue of friendlies, decode encrypted information and maintain situational awareness. “We’re trying to see how well players respond under pressure, which is critical for success as an unmanned operator,” Dr. Phillip Mangos, president and chief scientist at Adaptive Immersion Technologies, said. “We’re looking for attention to detail, the ability to multi-

task and prioritize, and a talent for strategic planning— thinking 10 moves ahead of your adversary.” To maintain this pressure, players complete multiple 5to 10-minute missions in an hour. Each scenario changes, with different weather, terrain, number of friendlies and hostiles and potential communication breakdowns. After finishing the game portion, participants answer questions focusing on personality and biographical history. Mangos’ team then crunches this data with game-performance metrics to create a comprehensive operator evaluation. Last year, over 400 civilian and military volunteers participated as StealthAdapt research subjects at various Navy and Air Force training centers. Mangos and his research team currently are reviewing the results and designing an updated system for validation by prospective Navy and Air Force unmanned operators. It will be ready for fleet implementation this year. Mangos envisions StealthAdapt serving as a standalone testing and recruitment tool, or as part of a larger screening process such as the Selection for UAS Personnel, also known as SUPer. SUPer is an ONRsponsored series of specialized tests that assesses cognitive abilities and personality traits of aspiring UxV operators.

Helicopter crew takes command of VT-3 By Lt. Jon Lee, USCG VT-3 Public Affairs Office

O

n March 23, a historic first took place onboard Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) at Training Squadron Three (VT-3). Command and execution of the primary fixed wing training squadron was assumed by two South Field-trained fleet helicopter pilots. Cmdr. Christopher Biggs was relieved by Cmdr. Barnet Harris II with Cmdr. Mike Gerhart assuming the duties as executive officer. Biggs, a fleet P-3 Orion pilot, assumed command of VT-3 Oct. 28, 2016. During his time as commanding officer, Biggs’ commitment to safety, efficiency and excellence earned the squadron many awards and commendations, including multiple Chief of Naval Operations Aviation Safety Awards, the 2015 Training Excellence Award, the coveted Vice Admiral Robert Goldthwaite Award and the 2015 Commander Theodore G. Ellyson Aviator Production Excellence Award. During Biggs’

command, VT-3 became the benchmark for standardization and procedural compliance, as well as renowned for its tradition of safety and excellence in the production of military aviators. Biggs will be instructing for Training Air Wing Five’s Fixed-wing Instructor Training Unit before retiring from the Navy. Harris, a fleet SH-60B pilot, came to VT-3 as the squadron’s executive officer Oct. 28, 2016. During his time as executive officer, VT-3 became the most efficient Primary Flight Training squadron thanks to a command dedicated to safe, quality training. Harris graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 2000 with a bachelor of sci-

ence in political science and a minor in Japanese. He completed Primary Flight Training at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Okla. and earned his Wings of Gold from HT-18 at NASWF in April, 2002. Harris’ first operational squadron was in 2003 with the HSL-51 Warlords of Atsugi in Japan as Detachment Seven Main-

tenance Officer and Squadron Assistant Operations Officer, conducting Anti-Submarine and Anti-Surface warfare operations as well as Naval Special Warfare support missions. In 2008, he reported to HT-8 Eightballers to teach students to fly the TH-57 helicopter. Harris spent his disassociated sea tour on the USS Essex

(LHD 2) out of Sasebo, Japan as the V-3 Division Officer, Aircraft Handling Officer and ship’s INSURV Coordinator. Aboard the Essex, he facilitated multiple engagements between U.S. naval leadership and key military and civilian leaders of the Government of Japan, drawing upon his Japanese linguistic skillset. His next tours included Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay with HSL-37, the Naval War College where he earned his master’s degree in national security and strategic studies, and United States Central Command as a Joint Planning Officer prior to reporting to TraWing-5. Harris assumes command of a squadron with a 31-year history of excellence, efficiency and safety, with more than 812,000 flight hours without a Class Alpha mishap. Together with the experience of Gerhart, VT-3 will continue to set the standard of excellence set forth by its predecessors. The multi-platform experience of two fleet rotary pilots is sure to benefit VT-3 students by adding new perspectives to their training.

Destin native earns her wings onboard NAS Whiting Field By Lt.j.g. Luke Rague NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) Public Affairs Office

Destin native Lt.j.g. Danielle Francis Adams grew up in the world of aviation and has now earned her place among it as one of the Navy’s newest helicopter pilots. Adams earned her Wings of Gold during a ceremony onboard Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) March 23 as the 34,201th unrestricted naval aviator to be winged in the United States Navy. She was joined onstage by her family and friends and was pinned by her twin sister, Ali Hollis. “I’m honored we were able to help each other through the last few years of training, and to finally be here for her today,” Hollis, who is in medical school, said. Adams was born in Pensacola before moving to Destin. She attended Fort Wal-

ton Beach High School, graduating in 2011. She earned a bachelors degree in athletic training at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Fla., in 2015. Adams commissioned as an officer at the Officer Candidate School in Newport, R.I. in 2016. Adams finds it hard to imagine living not surrounded by aviation, after growing up in the world’s busiest airspaces, but she was not always set on becoming an aviator. “I did not go to a recruiter with the intention of flying,” Adams said, who was not sure how the Navy could use her degree. “I primarily wanted to serve, regardless of what job I did.” Adams’ sense of duty is no surprise, as both of her parents, made a career in the Navy. Both Destin residents, her mother,

Anita Francis, served for 22 years, starting as an enlisted flight engineer and retiring as a lieutenant aviation maintenance officer working on C-130 Hercules airplanes. Her father David Adams served for 27 years in numerous airframes and retired as a qualified aircrew aviation master chief. “We tried to get both daughters to join, taking them every year of high school to summer camps at the Academy,” David said, whose final duty station was the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. “But they wanted nothing to do with it,” Francis added. Adams needed to find her own way in, Francis remembers. She earned her degree and spent time as the athletic trainer for a professional rugby team before

reaching out to a recruiter. “We were both about floored,” Francis remembers from the phone call when Adams told them she was joining. “But she finally did it when it was her decision, not because we wanted it.” Adams, who passed through the halls of Training Squadron Two (VT-2) and Helicopter Training Squadron Eight (HT8), appreciates that flight school was more than just the adrenaline rush of learning to fly. “I learned a great deal about myself, especially what sort of leader I want to become,” she said. “We are given opportunities to grow individually, but working as a crew, especially in the helicopter community, is a key to success.” Adams will be moving to Norfolk, Va. to begin advanced training to fly the MH53E Sea Dragon. She hopes to make a career in the Navy.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month 2018 theme: ‘Raise Your Voice For Prevention’ From NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC)

During April 2018, the Department of Defense will observe the 14th annual Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM). The Department of Navy’s theme is “Protecting Our People Protects Our Mission. The Difference Starts with You. Step Up and Step In to Stop Sexual Assault.” This theme reminds us that everyone has a role to play in ensuring the men and women around us can live and work free from the threat of sexual assault. Though the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program is a yearround effort, SAAPM offers additional opportunities for members of the Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) community to renew our commitment to eliminating sexual assault from our ranks. Every Sailor, civilian and family member plays a role in reducing and eliminating sexual assault. Understanding how to recognize opportunities for intervention is vital to stopping unsafe behavior, including retaliation. Step Up and Step In: There are many ways that you can step up and step in to stop sexual assault, including these active intervention techniques: Intervene: Approach the situation and tell the folks involved that you are concerned. Enlist Others: Get friends, colleagues, family or some other person in a position of authority to help diffuse the situation. Distract: Create a diversion. Support: Check in to make sure everyone is safe. The SAPR Team at NASP is excited about SAAPM, and will hosting the following events/activities: • March 30 – Ice Flyer’s SAAPM Night

at Pensacola Civic Center. • April 6, 13, 20 and 27 – NASP to host information tables at the NEX. • April 3, 10, 17 and 24 – “Teal Tuesday.” Civilians are encouraged to wear teal to show support for survivors of sexual violence. • April 3 – Proclamation signing/ ribbon tying: NASP and tenant commands at 9 a.m. at NASP headquarters, Bldg 1500. • April 4 – “Take Back the Night” event at University of West Florida. • April 5 – Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Training day for all DSAACP certified advocates. Advocates will have the opportunity to earn up to eight hours of face-to-face Continuing Educations Units toward renewal of their certification. • April 17 – Basewide “Chalk the Walk” event: Come out and create a message to show your support for creating a healthy environment for all. • April 18 – Social media awareness: Change Facebook photo to SAAPM. • April 19 – Twitter Thursday: Post #SAAPM Tweets with pictures. • April 20 – “Light Up the Night” 5 a.m. and Amazing SAPR Race at NATTC at 8 a.m. • April 25 – “Denim Day.” Wear denim to show support for sexual assault survivors. NIOC to create a “Human TEAL RIBBON” photo. Naval Hospital Pensacola will be hosting a “Red and Teal Party” at NHP Theater 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call the SARC or Civilian Victim Advocate (CVA) for more information or to get involved. The SARC can be reached at 452-5109. The CVA can be reached at 452-5328. Both can provide information and command training on any SAPRrelated topics. They would love to hear from you.

Denim Day... On April 25 NASP will join other installations in recognizing Denim Day by encouraging civilian personnel (who are able to do so) to wear denim to work. Denim Day stickers will also be distributed by the Fleet and Family Support Center.

Regional SAPR training ... Capt. Chuck Marks, U.S. Fleet Forces sexual assault and prevention (SAPR) officer, speaks to sexual assault response coordinators during a recent regional SAPR and SARC training seminar at NAS Jacksonville. The three-day event provided training to SARCs and SAPR victim advocates from naval installations throughout the Southeast region. Tina Vaughn, the CNRSE regional SARC, collaborated with Marks and Ana-Christina Hicks, a civilian career resilience coach, to create an enriched and customized training that involved SARCs from naval installations spanning the Southeast region. Vaughn said that the event was well received by the attendees. “Overwhelmingly, the attendees felt very grateful for the opportunity to devote time to their professional growth, as well as the chance to work so closely, and in person, with their peers,” Vaughn said.

NETPDC selects fleet liaison as CoQ By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) Public Affairs

T

he Fleet Liaison for the Navy Advancement Center (NAC) was recognized March 15 as Civilian of the Quarter (CoQ), first quarter of 2018 for the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC). Cheryl Dengler, a former Marine supply officer and civil service veteran since 2015, received the award for her outstanding performance in facilitating enlisted advancement development, specifically enabling the realignment, recruitment and selection of Fleet exam subject matter experts for the Advancement Exam Readiness Review (AERR) process. Dengler said she was totally honored by the CoQ recognition, and appreciates her boss taking the time to acknowledge her work. “This award was a very nice surprise – especially since I already enjoy what I do and thoroughly appreciate contributing to the accomplishments of the command,” Dengler said. “At the end of the day, the best reward is knowing I am a part of a great team help-

ing Sailors around the world.” NETPDC Commanding Officer Capt. Kertreck Brooks said Dengler’s outstanding efforts ensured that hundreds of exam SMEs were able to travel to and from NETPDC without complication. Her efforts contributed to the advancement of tens-of-thousands of Sailors. “Ms. Dengler’s knowledge and insight into AERR schedules, traveling personnel and Defense Travel System issues are directly responsible for the seamless execution of AERRs,” Brooks said. “Her deep understanding of the AERR process enabled the flawless transition to the Type Commander (TYCOM) assumption of Readiness Review scheduling responsibility. She played a key part in developing the new paradigm for exam development.”

Patti Gibson, NAC Exam Development Division Head and Dengler’s supervisor, said her work was not only outstanding, but is an integral part of the exam development process. “The transition to TYCOM responsibility for Fleet SME scheduling was one of the biggest changes to exam development in years – and the impact to Sailors could have been severe if not done correctly,” Gibson said. “The transition

challenge was complicated by a looming hard deadline of Jan. 1 – only a few months after the realignment announcement by the Chief of Naval Operations. “Thanks directly to Cheryl’s efforts, the new AERR selection process was launched on time and is performing seamlessly,” Gibson added. NETPDC, located on board NAS Pensacola’s Saufley Field, provides products and services that enable and en-

hance education, training, career development, and personnel advancement throughout the Navy. Primary elements of the command include the Voluntary Education Department, the Navy Advancement Center and the Resources Management Department.
