was when it was presented to me in September 1994.” During that time when he was first selected, Jackson looked up to two chiefs whom he thought of as mentors. The first was an old-school crusty type who was tough and knew his job like the back of his hand. The other was slightly less technically skilled, but more empathetic and with better people skills. Jackson said he knew he wanted to be a mix of the two. “When I was looking at whom I measured myself against, those were the two whom I wanted to emulate. I always said to myself, See CPOs on page 2

from Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education (MPT&E) FLTCM(AW/SW) April D. Beldo. Beldo spoke for nearly 10 minutes to the largely
student crowd, explaining the importance of the changes she’s seen during her U.S. Navy career. “Things have changed. In my 30-plus years I have seen change in the Navy
and one of the things I’ve noticed as part of our organization is that we’re ahead of society when it comes to changing and being more accepting to the diversity of an organization and including everyone’s ideas, their vision and their background.” Beldo cited several examples of women in the U.S. Navy who affected significant change, citing accounts of heroism on battlefields, strides in innovation and technology as well as assuming responsibilities in what were previously male occupations and roles. “Don’t tell me it cannot be done,” she told the audience. “Because there are some trailblazers making it possible for you and I to do whatever we set our minds to. They didn’t allow anyone or anything to stand in their way. Let’s make it our personal mission that their
efforts not be in vain.” Wiley, the associate dean of students and the director of Inclusion Services and Programs at the University of West Florida in Pensacola, spoke on the various contributions women have made in local and national arenas. NATTC Executive Officer Cmdr. Scott Sharp, also a guest speaker at the event, said the Women’s History Month celebration is important for the hundreds of students present. “Here at NATTC we have an awesome diverse staff,” he said. “We come from all walks of life, all backgrounds. Twentythree percent of our student population is female so we have to have awesome female instructors in order to mentor those young women. The staff that we have here is the See History on page 2

command, most notably being selected for the Commander, Navy Installations Command Installation Excellence Award for 2015. “What a privilege it is to be here today to celebrate the leadership and impact of Capt. Keith Hoskins on each of us here in Pensacola,” he said. “We thank you and your family for your service. We wish you all the best, and hope our paths will cross often.” White, who served with Martin in the Forward Deployed Naval Forces, pointed out that the decision to select him as NASP’s next commander was not made lightly. “You bring a wealth of knowledge and background from many assignments throughout the fleet,” he said. White said Martin is passionate about the Navy and about taking care of Sailors, an attribute that will be integral to his role at NASP. “I am confident in your exemplary leadership abilities and dedication to preserving the integrity of our Navy and our Sailors,” White said. “We are glad to have you leading the NAS Pensacola team.” Martin complimented Hoskins on the phenomenal job he did as the CO of NAS Pensacola. “I know that I have huge shoes to fill,” he said. He said was committed to working with all of the tenant commands and contractors to ensure a seamless transition. “This installation is a very special place and we have been given the huge responsibility to ensure that it remains the premier installation for the U.S. Navy now and in the distant future,” he said. “I ask that you uphold the core values and tenants of naval service and never forget about those who went before us. Lean forward in your thoughts and ideas, look for new ways to do things more efficiently, treat everyone with dignity and respect, and ensure we are doing everything within our area of responsibility to ensure that we are supporting the fleet, the fighter and the family.” Prior to this assignment, Martin was a military faculty member in the leadership and warfighting department at the Air War College at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala. A native of Tennessee, he enlisted in the Navy in 1984 as an aviation electronics technician, and was selected for a fleet NROTC scholarship. He was commissioned as an ensign in 1992, was designated as a naval aviator in 1995 and served with several E-2C “Hawkeye” squadrons. He educational degrees include a bachelor’s in aviation management from Auburn University and a master’s in national security and strategic studies from the Naval War College in Newport, R.I. He participated in combat operations in support of Operation Southern Watch and Operation Iraqi Freedom in the Arabian Gulf. Hoskins, who is retiring after 27 years of naval service including three seasons with the Blue Angels, said he has fond memories of his three years as the CO at NASP. He said his success at NASP was due in a large part to the strong team in place. He listed key department heads by name, and he also thanked past and present members of his command triad for their contributions. “I am so proud of your collective achievements,” he said. “It has been fantastic to watch my team do some amazing things over the years. So, thank you very much for all of your support.” During a retirement ceremony that followed the change of command, Hoskins was recognized with a number of awards and special tributes including a video presentation featuring comments from U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller, Adm. William E. Gortney and Rear Adm. Dwight D. Shepard. In his final remarks, Hoskins reflected on the highlights of his career, expressed his gratitude to his wife, Lori, and other family members for all of support they gave him during his career and shared some special stories from his personal life. Hoskins said he plans to stay in the Pensacola area and hopes to continue serving the community.

NMCRS annual fund drive extended From CID Public Affairs
Sailors and Marines in Northwest Florida have two more weeks to participate in the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) active-duty fund drive. The drive, originally scheduled to run until March 31, has been extended to April 15. “We wanted to give commands and volunteers more time to make 100 percent personal contact goals with all Navy and Marine Corps personnel assigned to the area,” said Lt. Cmdr. Charles Mayfield, NMCRS 2016 fund drive regional coordinator. “We were see-
ing a significant effort as command key person volunteers were making their final push and giving them a little more time will help them achieve our 100 percent contact goal. The extension will particularly help out the larger training commands dealing with class schedules and scheduling issues.” The NMCRS raises funds for programs and support services through repayment of interest-free loans, proceeds from thrift shops, the reserve fund, and most of all, contributions.

‘When I grow up, I want to be like them.’ ” His emulations may have helped. Jackson’s career has brought him through five sea tours and six shore tours, including as the current Commander, Navy Region Southeast CMC. He said he is constantly learning and looking for ways to improve, and he shares his advice on how to develop as Sailors and mentors. “The best piece of advice I can give you is to be humble,” he said. “It may sound cliché, but it’s the truth. Understand the concept of servant leadership, which is serving your Sailors; that applies directly to your
role as a chief petty officer and how influential you can be. The next thing is to get comfortable with being uncomfortable; every great leader always looks for way to improve.” When Jackson thinks about the CPO birthday now, he reflects on the differences and preparedness new chiefs have that he didn’t when he was selected nearly 22 years ago. “A chief of today is much better suited to enter the chief’s mess and lead to their potential than I was when I made chief,” Jackson said. “Back then, in my personal opinion, I didn’t learn anything close to what the first classes are learning today. I’m almost jealous of the chief-select today because they receive year-round train-
tion assistance, health education and post-combat support, child budgeting, disaster relief, emergency travel funding, and access to thrift shops. By using a workforce composed mostly of volunteers, most contributions go back to service members and their families. This year’s drive has also included a sold-out golf tournament and a half marathon and 5K.

ing in a continuing leadership pipeline. When I got pinned, we were expected to be ready and to be ‘the chief,’ but my generation was behind the power curve in terms of preparing Sailors. There wasn’t a lot of formal training.” Despite the lack of formal training in the beginning, his leadership experience has helped to shape who he is and helped him get to his current duty station at Navy Region Southeast, where he is charged with leading more than 100,000 Sailors and civilians throughout the region. “I want people to understand how privileged we are to be able to lead at this level, because I don’t take that for granted any day,” Jackson said.

Recalling the life of a military child By Deja Fisher Military dependent columnist
he front door opened and the sound of my mother’s combat boots hitting the hallway floor got louder as she neared my room. My mother entering the house without saying, “Sweet pea, I’m home,” was rather unusual, so I assumed I was in some sort of trouble. I mentally prepared myself to be scolded for not washing the dishes as soon as I got home from school. As I looked up to greet my mother – now standing at my bedroom door – she said to me, “We’re moving to Japan.” There was a tense moment of silence, during which I just stared at her, and then warm tears began to stream down my face. I slowly stood up and walked to my bedroom door which, for the first time in my life, I closed in my mother’s face. And, for the first time in my life, she did not scold me for my attitude.
How to submit a commentary
What was I going to do? In that moment my entire life was flipped upside down. Leave Gulfport, Miss.? That was insanity! Did she expect me to just be excited about having to leave behind my family, my friends and my boyfriend? Ridiculous! I walked out of my room and headed straight to my mother’s room, I was ready to tell her off and inform her that I was not going anywhere. Especially not to some foreign country right before my freshman year of high school. As I got closer to her room I heard her speaking on the phone with someone: “Yeah, I just told her about my orders to Japan,” my mother said. “I feel horrible. I know she does-

I tried to pick a duty station that wouldn’t require us to
move but the only way for me to not have to leave her and go on the ship is to take overseas orders.” I stopped and just stood there, staring at her door. Not once had I considered her feelings. Not once had I thought to myself that she probably spent that entire day stressing over thinking of a way to tell me that we both had to prepare for a big move to a country neither of us had ever been to. All I thought about was how much I resented her for not trying hard enough to keep us in Gulfport. She was not trying to ruin my life, she was only trying to keep us together. What a jerk I had been. While she finished her phone call, I sat on the couch in the living room waiting for her to come out of her room so that we could talk. She exited her room and came over to sit on the recliner across from me. “Mom, it’s OK.” I said. “I apologize for how I reacted earlier and I’ll begin preparing myself for the move. A new place may be exciting.”

Naval EOD school gets SMART Story by Naval Education and Training Command PAO
he Naval School Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NavScolEOD) graduated its latest group of EOD technicians March 4, and these students had a SMART advantage. The Scalable Mobile Applications and Ready Training (SMART) initiative is a pilot training modernization effort at the school. The SMART project was submitted and vetted through the Secretary of the Navy’s Task Force Innovation (TFI) in 2015. “The entire team at NavScolEOD has embraced and executed a vision to improve learning through e-technology synchronization with the classroom; providing 24/7 mobile access to study materials for students inside and outside the classroom, and providing instructors automated tools to gather and assess student performance,” said Capt. Jim Beene, Center for Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Diving, commanding officer. “The SMART initiative has cultivated a strong and productive organizational change which is directly aligned with ‘Ready Relevant Learning.’ ” Through TFI’s funding support, NavScolEOD developed relevant instructional content and has issued eTablets to 100 percent of its students for the majority of the EOD course. This allows students to study after hours using practical technologies, including prototype quiz applications, references, and a wide scope of instructional how-to videos that were developed by NavScolEOD. “This after-hours augmentation to traditional brick and mortar schoolhouse methods has solidified SMART’s value and gained momentum for future evaluation, sustainment, and innovation,” said EODCM Michael Lentz, NavScolEOD’s Training Technology Development (TTD) lead. “I think in the back of everyone’s minds they all knew it was the right way to go, that we were behind the times like so many, and despite many uncertainties, we charged forward.”
EOD2 Ryan Fritsch instructs U.S. Army and Marine Corps students Feb. 29 at the Naval School Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NavScolEOD) in the most current procedures for the location, identification, recovery and disposal of conventional surface and underwater ordnance. The course is broken down into 10 separate training divisions: CORE, demolition, tools and methods, biological and chemical, ground ordnance, air ordnance, improvised explosive devices, nuclear ordnance, WMD and underwater. For Army, Air Force and Marine Corps students the school consists of 143 academic training days and for Navy students 200 academic training days. Photo by EODCM Michael Lentz
Using SMART, students reported being more prepared for tests. The eTablets provide students a selfpaced study and academic remediation tool after hours that reinforce the enabling objectives in all testable areas and skills such as detection, identification, render safe, and disposal of conventional, chemical biological, nuclear, improvised explosive devices (C-IED), and other explosive hazards. “Having the tablet at our fingertips, particularly the videos, helps us retain information, and reinforce information that we learned during the week, especially on the weekends,” said Ens. Tyler Mulloy, a student at NavScolEOD. With technical support from Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, NavScolEOD is repurposing a portion of its tablets as eGradebooks (EGBs) for instructors. EGBs are electronic grade sheets that automate and standardize test grading throughout the school. “This will increase the ability to analyze student performance commonalities over time and allow for in-
structions to be easily adjusted,” said EODCS Bert Marley. “This supports consolidation of test administration materials, greater grading efficiencies, and dependable metrics analysis to target weak areas.” The SMART pilot is scheduled to run through October 2016. “Although we need more run time for greater statistical significance, we’ve seen fewer test failures and higher graduation rates through the school. I am proud of our joint team and amazed at the progress Sailors can make when provided the resources and reinforcement to innovate,” said Capt. Charles Andrews, NavScolEOD commanding officer. NavScolEOD, located on Eglin Air Force Base, provides high-risk, specialized, basic and advanced EOD training to U.S. and 97 partner nation military and selected U.S. government personnel each year.

SAAPM begins at NAS Whiting Field By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) is going to see an abundance of teal over the next several weeks as the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) team promotes their annual Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month campaign (SAAPM). The SAAPM program is one part of the SAPR team’s efforts to promote and foster a Navy that is respectful toward everyone and intolerant of sexual assault. Throughout April, Dora Ford, the installation’s Sexual Assault Response Coordinator, will emphasize the message – “Eliminate Sexual Assaults. Know your part. Do your part!” “SAAPM is an in-your-face month. We will be posting messages all over the base. From ribbons on the trees, to yard signs, posters, table tents, activities and more; we will have displays everywhere,” Ford said. “There won’t be a command, squadron or agency that doesn’t participate in some fashion.” Ford has set up April as a month to keep people involved. She desires to do more than just inform. Ford wants to keep people active in the process. “It is important that we not only raise awareness of the issue, but we need to engage them in
the process. Just like in a real life event, knowing that you can intervene isn’t enough. You have to be willing to act. Well, we don’t want people to sit on the sidelines during April. We want them to take action and be a part of the program,” Ford stated. Her plan is to present a series of events for NAS Whiting Field team members to attend and participate in the activities. These events include a 5K obstacle course, a Segway race, a tug of war competition, a cookout, a bowling tournament, a coffee social and more. However, that is only part of the process. Ford is instituting a “We’re Against Sexual Assault – Are You?” social media plan to encourage participants to take photographs of themselves and post to the NAS Whiting Field Facebook page to prove they are engaged. Photographs and comments should be posted to www.facebook. They com/naswhitingfield/. have even created a public serv-
ice announcement that is on the NAS Whiting Field Facebook page. The emphasis on taking action is a primary point that is necessary to drive home if the Navy ever wants to stop sexual assaults. Intervention truly is the key. The Secretary of the Navy’s office coined a new slogan, “Stepping Up and Stepping In,” to stress the importance of action. Although great strides have been made in the past few years, according to Ford, sexual assault is still a problem in the military. “The SAPR team emphasizes; it is our job, everybody’s job, to protect the vulnerable, not to take advantage of them,” she stressed. In addition to the activities, other SAAPM events and campaigns throughout April will include: “It’s Time” – a chance to take photographs with a clock to emphasize the SAPR Day of Action; Denim Day – a day to wear denim to show solidarity with
victims of sexual assault; the Awareness Tree – a tree filled with teal ribbons; Teal Tuesdays; information booths; “Sidewalk Talk;” and more. In all, she has planned more than 20 activities or programs to support the SAAPM goals. “The support from the base, the training wing, MWR and everyone else has been tremendous,” Ford said. “Everyone is so willing to support the program’s goals. It makes the SAAPM program so effective when everybody gets on board.” As people attend the various events one concept they will quickly realize is that the SAPR program is not about being the “sex police” as Ford puts it. The idea is to promote an environment of mutual respect and healthy relationships. Consent is the difference between sex and sexual assault. So how do you know if you have consent? Talk to your partner. The absence of “no” is not consent. Only an informed, sober, freely given, on-
going, enthusiastic “yes” is consent. If there is any question, or either partner is not 100 percent on board then they should not engage in any sexual acts. “Communication is the key,” Ford states. “If you can’t have an upfront conversation with the other person about sex, then should you really be having sex with them?” Anyone can be a victim of sexual assault. The SAPR team is here to support all victims and inform them of all the options available. The team wants the victims to know they have rights and it is their job to stand up and advocate for those rights. Sexual assault reports can be completely anonymous and confidential and the team encourages any affected party, victim or witnessing bystander to step forward and report a sexual crime. The goal is to support victims, raise awareness through education, and to prevent Marines and Sailors from becoming victims.
‘With You All the Way’ tour comes to local schools By Lt.j.g. Andrew Bertucci NASWF Public Affairs Staff
The Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC), United Services Organization (USO), and the Trevor Romain Company are teaming up to support military children in the local area through their educational “With You All the Way!” tour. The tour is coming to local schools during the month of May to assist military kids and their classmates in becoming happier, healthier, and more confident. The NASWF School Liaison Office is helping coordinate the tour and will address the unique challenges of military life facing military children.
Since 2010, the With You All the Way! tour has visited more than 100,000 military children in more than 13 countries developing valuable strategies for both military children and families facing the challenge of military life, and also sharing an important message emphasizing the caring for one another. The mission of the tour is to deliver proven strategies to prepare every military child for the unique challenges they face, so that they can positively impact themselves, their families, and their communities. “This program is really good for the entire school community. ... (it’s) an encouraging event to make sure the military kids feel welcomed, secure, and that they
celebrate the fact their parents are serving in the military,” Christopher Hendrix, NASWF school liaison officer, said. The With You All the Way! tour has primarily centered on children in the third through fifth grades in the past. This new program focuses on kindergarten through second grade children. It has the same theme and message but has been restructured to appeal to the younger audience. To help speak to the younger children the Trevor Romain Company hired Julie Frost, a professional singer and actress who starred as Nemo in Disney’s “Finding Nemo the Musical.” The tour is coming to local schools during the first two weeks of May. The
schools and dates are as follows: May 2 – Holley-Navarre Primary School. May 3 – Plugh Elementary School and Florosa Elementary School. May 4 – Pea Ridge Elementary School. May 5 – West Navarre Primary School. May 9 – Berryhill Elementary School. May 10 – Pensacola Blue Angel Elementary and Myrtle Grove Elementary. May 11 – Hellen Caro Elem and Pleasant Grove Elementary. May 12 – S.S. Dixon Primary School.

CNO has announced five initiatives to drive sexual assaults to zero From Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs
ASHINGTON (NNS) – A line of effort in the recently released “Design to Maintain Maritime Superiority” is to strengthen our Navy team which is composed of active and reserve Sailors, Navy civilians and families. In January, Chief of Naval Adm. John Operations Richardson announced a new set of sexual assault prevention and response initiatives to lower the obstacles to reporting, provide added support to survivors, and prevent re-victimization. During the announcement, Richardson told reporters an important element of this effort is to eliminate self-inflicted destructive behavior, sexual assault being among the most egregious. He went on to say sexual harassment and sexual assault have absolutely no place in the U.S. Navy and are contrary to its core values. “Eliminating sexual assault requires more than words, zero-tolerance requires an all-hands effort,” said Richardson. Here are the five initiatives CNO announced to help “end the scourge of sexual assault” in our Navy: 1. A shipmate is not a “bystander.” If you see something wrong, do something right. It is every Sailor’s responsibility to “step up and step in” to help their shipmate when they observe or become aware of undesired and destructive behavior. In 2015, Navy adopted a new training
approach, shifting from traditional lecture-style training to a more dynamic program called “Chart the Course.” Chart the Course moves beyond the “bystander” approach and combines scenario-based videos with facilitator-led discussions to achieve an interactive learning experience. The training provides insight on what to do when faced with challenging situations. 2. Establish counselors within the Fleet and Family Support Centers (FFSC) as a resource for victim support. Building on the success we have experienced with deployed resiliency counselors on “big decks,” there are potential gains if we are able to replicate the counseling and support provided under the Navy Family Advocacy Program for Sailors impacted by sexual assault. In addition to enhanced care, we expect the availability of these counselors to provide an opportunity to go after the social and structural barriers to male victim reporting. These counselors will provide opportunities to collaborate with local civilian facilities and counselors to ensure we are using every available measure to support our survivors. We are currently deter-

‘Can I Kiss You’ to deliver Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) message at NASP April 22 ... “Can I Kiss You?” is one of the most sought-after training sessions focused on reducing sexual assault in the military. Each year, this training is delivered hundreds of times to more than 30,000 audience members/participants. “Can I Kiss You?” is coming to NAS Pensacola and NASP Corry Station in two presentations April 22 at NATTC’S Charles Taylor Hangar (1 p.m.) and at NASP Corry Station’s track (4 p.m.).

mining how to pilot this concept to get a better assessment. 3. Improve our personnel management practices and procedures, following a sexual assault experience, to ensure our Sailors are put in the best position possible to succeed. This includes examining our present detailing practices so to preclude administrative or management decisions and actions that unintentionally result in the Sailor reliving the sexual assault experience. In addition to the expedited transfer program, this could also include honoring a survivor’s request for an expedited discharge,
should they desire to leave the Navy. 4. Continue our efforts to educate our Sailors and reduce alcohol abuse in the Navy, particularly binge drinking. The data clearly reflects that alcohol abuse is a factor in most of the Navy’s sexual assault cases. We need to ensure that our accountability processes and options, administrative and otherwise, provide the tools we need to effectively deal with incidents where alcohol abuse has been established. 5. Better utilize technology to remove cultural barriers and stigma associated with

reporting a sexual assault or seeking advice and counsel. We are currently exploring a number of computer applications piloted at universities. We expect to be able to begin introducing a “Navy version” within the year. The CNO concluded his discussion by thanking Congress for the focus, attention, and assistance they have provided on this issue and the commitment to eliminate sexual assault. “I want to continue to confront this scourge in our workforce. Until we go to zero we can never be satisfied,” Richardson said.
NAS Pensacola SAAPM events for April Throughout the month of April, Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Month (SAAPM), NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center will be hosting a series of events designed to promote education and awareness. • Teal Tuesdays: Show support by wearing the color teal, the color for sexual assault awareness. • Tuesdays and Thursdays a table will be staffed at NATTC Galley,10 a.m.-noon, with educational materials. Victim Advocates will be available to answer questions. • “Can I Kiss You?,” an interactive audience event, will be presented twice April 22: at NATTC’S Charles Taylor Hangar (1 p.m.) and at NASP Corry Station’s track (4 p.m.). • International Denim Day is April 27. Plan on wearing denim to show support and solidarity for assault victims. • The Amazing SAPR Race takes place April 29. For more information, call 452-5990.

8th Air Force commander graduates newest CSO class Story, photo by Capt. Meghan O’Rourke USAF AETC 479 FTG/PAO
ajor Gen. Richard M. Clark, Eighth Air Force commander, visited NAS Pensacola recently for an overview of the 479th Flying Training Group (FTG) and the undergraduate combat systems officer (CSO) training program. Eighth Air Force is one of two active-duty numbered air forces in Air Force Global Strike Command. As commander, Clark is responsible for more than16,000 Airmen and 162 bomber aircraft. The majority of his aircraft have CSOs who are responsible for weapon’s employment, a key piece of the strategic deterrence mission. During his visit, Clark toured
the 479th Operations Support Squadron (OSS) and the 451st Flying Training Squadron (FTS), two units critical in developing CSO students during the advanced phase of undergraduate combat systems officer training (UCT). During this phase, CSOs learn tactics in low-level navigation and dropping missiles, both skills instrumental to the Eighth Air Force’s success.
Major Gen. Richard Clark, Eighth Air Force commander, was guest speaker for the graduation of UCT Class 16-06.
After touring the squadrons, Clark attended the soft-winging ceremony for UCT class 16-06. The soft-winging ceremony occurs the evening prior to the class graduation and allows graduates

to honor an instructor who was critical to their success during training. Concluding his tour of NAS Pensacola, Clark presided over UCT Class 16-06’s graduation as their guest speaker. In addition to presenting each graduate with their first set of CSO wings, Clark bestowed advice to everyone in attendance. “There are three phases of making something happen; the ‘Say It’ phase, the ‘Do It’ phase, and the ‘Own It’ phase,” Clark stated. “The ‘Say It’ phase is easy – you just have to tell everyone what you’re going to do. You accomplished this phase the day you said ‘I’m going to become a CSO.’ ” Clark continued, “The ‘Do It’ phase is more difficult. You need to start doing the actions which will let the world know just how much you mean it. You all have
just completed that phase. UCT is over and now is the time to move on to the hardest phase.” “The ‘Own It’ phase is the trickiest. Obstacles will arise in your path trying to keep you from success. Threats, people and a countless amount of other obstacles will get in your way, but you’re going to have to persevere and overcome,” Clark said. “The people in attendance today supporting you, your family, friends and instructors, all require you to master this ‘Own It’ phase. Don’t disappoint them.” As Clark headed to his aircraft, he acknowledged that “NAS Pensacola and the 479th FTG is bigger and better than even I expected. You all are doing outstanding work here.” For more information on combat system officer training, visit www. Facebook. com/ 479FTG.

Sacred Heart joins program to offer care to veterans From Sacred Heart Health System
acred Heart Health System has announced a partnership to provide care through the Veterans Choice Program, giving veterans the choice to receive care at Sacred Heart locations throughout the region. As part of Ascension, the nation’s largest nonprofit healthcare system and the world’s largest Catholic health system, Sacred Heart joins Ascension facilities in 23 other states and the District of Columbia in sustaining and improving the health of individuals and communities by serving as an official provider of veterans care outside the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Qualified U.S. veterans who face wait times in excess of 30 days at the VA or have to travel farther than 40
miles from their home can receive care from Sacred Heart doctors at 50 sites between Gulf Shores, Ala. and Apalachicola. “No population is more vulnerable and more deserving of our compassion and support than our nation’s veterans,” said Susan Davis, president and CEO of Sacred Heart Health System. “The men and women in our community who have sacrificed so much for us deserve access to high quality health care. Working together, we have every confi-
dence that our Veterans Choice publicprivate partnership will advance care for our military veterans.” The Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 established funding to pay for healthcare services provided to veterans by private healthcare providers. Through the partnership, Sacred Heart physicians and other caregivers are authorized to provide primary care, inpatient and outpatient specialty care, and mental health for eligible veterans outside of VA. Ascension has established a contractual agreement with TriWest Healthcare Alliance, a federal contractor to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Tri-
West is designated by VA to implement the Veterans Choice Program and provide eligible veterans access to care in their community when the local VA facility cannot readily provide care. Nearly 9 million veterans received the Veterans Choice Card and use of the card is strictly voluntary. Veterans who qualify for VA healthcare can continue to receive care at a VA medical facility of their choice as they have in the past. The program will end when the allocated funds of $10 billion are used or no later than Aug.7, 2017. Veterans can determine eligibility for the Veterans Choice Program at www.va.gov/opa/choiceact/ or by calling: 1 (866) 606-8198. For more information about the Veterans Choice Program go to www. ascension.org/veterans.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim 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-ofcommand, 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 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
