CNO holds all-hands call for Pensacola Sailors By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs
The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) held an all hands call for area Sailors at the Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola March 31. As he entered NATTC’s main hangar, Adm. Jonathan Greenert was welcomed by a crowd of nearly 4,000 Sailors from area commands. Before addressing the large crowd, he reenlisted six Sailors; two staff members from NAS Pensacola, IT3 Kaitlin Carter and MA3 Andrew Livasy; two instructors from the Center for Information Dominance, CTT1 Benjamin Mold and CTT1 Bobby Bruno; and two instructors from NATTC, AEC Kenny Stone and AW2 Steven Gabby. The CNO then told the crowd he was glad to be back at NATTC to speak with some of the Navy’s newest Sailors and
talk with them about what the future holds. “Your challenges are not going to be my challenges,” Greenert said. “I would never have guessed that you would have the instability around the world that you see today. We are going to see instability for at least the next five years and probably into the next decade, so prepare yourself to deal with that. But the good news is that you are in an organization that the country depends upon to be the away team – that’s what we do. We are where it matters, when it matters around the world. The foundation of all of it is here in front of me today; you are the ones that are going to get us through the future.” Following his opening remarks and for the next 40 minutes, Greenert addressed a variety of questions on topics including retirement, uniforms, reenlistment bonuses and the introduction of females

The DoD Safe Helpline: What do I need to know? From NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center
If you’re in the military or have spent any time on a military installation, chances are you’ve heard of the Department of Defense (DoD) Safe Helpline. But what exactly is it, and why do you need to know it? The Safe Helpline is a 24/7 support service for members of the DoD community affected by sexual assault. The service is confidential, anonymous, secure, and available worldwide – providing victims
with the help they need anytime, anywhere. Why is this important to know? When a sexual assault occurs, victims are often overwhelmed and unsure where to turn. With this in mind, the April Sexual Assault Awareness and
Prevention Month (SAAPM) events for NAS Pensacola will open with the Safe Helpline Campaign: a call for all hands to add the Safe Helpline number to their phone contacts and whenever possible, to download the Safe Helpline app to their smartphones. The DoD Safe Helpline is more than just a phone number; it provides help in five ways: Telephone Helpline: (877) 995-5247: Safe Helpline provides live, confidential, one-onone help over the phone. The number is the same in the U.S.
and worldwide via DSN. Through the Telephone Helpline, Safe Helpline staff can also transfer callers to base/installation Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs), Victim Advocates (VAs), civilian rape crisis centers or the Suicide Prevention Lifeline through a simple, warm handoff process. Online Helpline: Safe Helpline provides live, confidential, one-on-one help through a secure instant-messaging platform at SafeHelpline.org. The website also contains vital information about recovering from
and reporting a sexual assault. Safe HelpRoom: Want to chat with people who have been through a similar experience? Safe HelpRoom is a secure community of survivors that meet to help each other 24/7– regardless of time zone or distance.

into the special warfare community. Since a larger percentage of the audience was in training for aviation maintenance, many of the questions dealt with the future of Navy aircraft and aircrews, specifically UAVs. “It will be a very long time before we have all unmanned aircraft,” said Greenert. “I think in the future, unmanned aircraft will become an adjunct to the airwing and it will be a part, but will not replace pilots or NFOs; the ability to change things in flight takes artificial intelligence and we’re just not there yet.” For the petty officers that reenlisted, taking the oath with the Navy’s top officer held special meaning. Carter was able to see the CNO during his last visit to Pensacola in 2012 when she was a student at NAS Pensacola Corry Station.

his way back to the fleet, Stone said that it was a great honor to be reenlisted by the CNO. “As I get closer to my time to transfer to a seagoing squadron, I am thinking about the young Sailors that I have mentored and had an interaction within the last three years,” said Stone. “I hope that this can be a positive motivation for the young Sailors in the audience and that they could
“Now three years later, I am able to meet him again, but this time I had the great pleasure of having him reenlist me,” said Carter. “Many don’t get an opportunity to reenlist with an officer so renowned in the naval community, so for me to have this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at such an early stage in my naval career it is a great honor.” As a chief and instructor on

Pen Air FCU Charity Golf Tournament benefits NMCRS $25,000 From Pen Air FCU NETC PAO
Pen Air Federal Credit Union’s (FCU) 15th annual Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) March 27 raised $25,000, thanks to the support of many local businesses and individuals in the community. Pen Air FCU selected the society as the recipient of its fund raising efforts because the society’s mission is closely in line with Pen Air FCU’s mission, which is to “Enhance lives through exceptional service, strength, and financial solutions.” The long-term mission of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is to help Sailors and Marines become financially self-sufficient by learning how to better manage their personal finances and prepare for unplanned expenses.

members, widows, and survivors. The society also receives and manages donated funds to administer these programs and services. Their goal is to help each person get support for their immediate needs. Pen Air FCU has raised more than $425,000 for this cause since the conception of the Charity Golf Tournament. The funds raised from this year’s tournament will be used by the society in the form of interest free loans to military personnel and their families. This will help keep military personnel focused on their jobs rather than their financial condition, and in turn, makes for a more ready military force. As Mark Harden, director of the local NMCRS chapter explained, “National allows us to use the money raised as much as three times for local use in one year’s time – so it can help more people.”

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.
The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

Fast friends: A beautiful thing about military life By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
About the columnist
What makes a true friend? We could wax philosophic on the issue, carefully tempering real-life accounts with the well-researched results of valid clinical studies of human behavior and sociology. Or, we could just Google it. WikiHow.com has an impressive list of tips to help you decide whether your friend is true, and as an added bonus, each tip is accompanied by a delightfully gender-neutral cartoon illustration. According to the WikiHow authors – who I imagine in a dank sweatshop in the basement of some corporate highrise, tapping away at long banks of dusty computer terminals – true friends give support, listen, don’t badmouth, stick to their word, have no secret agenda and are super-fun to hang out with. HuffingtonPost.com author Lindsay Holmes says that there are “11 Signs of a Genuine Friendship,” and these include “being present” and “having our backs.” On PsychologyToday.com, Dr. Alex Lickerman turns Japanese, submitting that true friendship is marked by a certain chemistry known in

Japan as “kenzoku.” And on a chubby little site known as TinyBuddha.com, Lori Deschene offers an exhaustive list of the “25 Ways to Be a True Friend.” Despite the fact that I spent a whole 27 minutes scanning Google, my scientifically inadequate research did not turn up one expert, author, blogger or internet wacko who mentioned the length of the relationship. As a military spouse, this is a relief, because if we were required to “be present” with a friend for a long period of time, military spouses wouldn’t have many friends at all.
Most military families move every two or three years. When we leave one duty station for another, we say good-bye to the friends we made there, keeping in touch through holiday cards and social media. At our new duty stations, we slowly form new relationships. Our “friends” become those people in our immediate location – whether we live on base or on the economy – even though we have other long-term friends far away. So, when we have a party, we need someone to pick us up from the auto mechanic, we need a name for the “emer-

She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. gency contact” on our children’s school forms, or we are just looking for someone to sit in the driveway and drink wine with, we call our “friends” in the local area. When significant events (birth, illness, loss) happen in the lives of military families, the length of their relationships has no bearing on their friends’ desire to help out. For example, when I had an early miscarriage while stationed at JAC Molesworth in England, we were touched by the flowers, cards, condolences and phone calls from other military families we hardly knew. Similarly, while stationed at Naval Station Mayport in
Florida, I signed up to make a meal for a new family who moved into base housing and just had a baby. I rang their doorbell on my assigned night and said, “Hi, you don’t know me. I’m Lisa, and I live down the street. I made you a shepherd’s pie ... can I see the baby?” Military life is unique, and our friendships differ from civilian culture in that camaraderie forms the basis of many of our relationships. We value unspoken trust and support among people working for a common cause, without regard to the length of the relationship. So when your new civilian friend has a significant event in her life, she may think it is a little odd when you show up with a lasagna, offer to drive her children to school, and mop her kitchen floor. But do it anyway. You may have only met her two months ago in the preschool pick up line, but she is your friend and she needs help. She will eventually understand that, even though military friends don’t always fit those internet checklists, they more than make up for any shortcomings in shared history with loyalty, sincerity and dedication. And that, my friend, is a major “check in the box.”

Four things to keep in mind about operations security and your privacy From Navy Live http://navylive.dodlive.mil/
nline searches. Public records. Social media. And more. Each presents a unique challenge to protect operations security and your privacy. It’s always a good time to ensure you’re practicing good habits to better protect both. Below are four things to know about OpSec and your privacy. 1. You should be careful about sharing too much information: Share information about yourself smartly and be careful about what you disclose about your family and occupation. Sailors and their families should be particularly careful not to share: • Deployment status. • Home address. • Telephone numbers. • Location information and associated location information in posts, tweets, checkins, photos and videos. • Schedules. Your close friends and family members have this information so there is no need to post it online. Other information that should not be shared: • Description of bases. • Unit morale. • Future operations or plans. • Results of operations. • Discussion of areas fre-
quented by service members (even off-duty hangouts). • Daily military activities and operations. • Technical information. • Details of weapon systems. • Equipment status. • Use privacy settings to better protect your personal information. • Facebook privacy basics (https://www.facebook.com/ab out/basics). • Twitter help center (https://support.twitter.com/gr oups/51-me#). • Google+ privacy (https://support.google.com/pl us/answer/1047279?hl=en). 2. Sailors and families should be careful about sharing too much information: Dangerous: My Sailor is in XYZ unit at ABC camp in ABC city in Iraq. • My daughter is aboard XYZ ship heading back to ABC city/country in X days.
• She will be back on X date from ABC city. • My family is back in Youngstown, Ohio. Safer: My Sailor is deployed in Iraq. • She is coming back home. • I’m from the Midwest. Best practice: Protect yourself and your family. Avoid providing details about yourself, especially related to a current deployment. Avoid providing details about family. To be safer, talk about events that have happened – not that will happen unless
that information has been released to the media. Otherwise, don’t provide specific details. 3. Be careful who you friend or those who follow you on social media: • Not everyone who wants to be your friend or follower is necessarily who they claim to be. • Be mindful of others attempting to use your social presence. Best practice: Only allow people you actually know in real life into your social circle.
4. OK to share: • Pride and support for service members, units and specialties. • Generalizations about service or duty. • Port call information after it has been released to the media. • General status of the location of a ship at sea (i.e., operating off the coast of San Diego, as opposed to 45 miles north of San Diego). • Released posts from official U.S. Navy social media presences.

Sisters in service: MIDN 1/C Gee Mi Jorde and MIDN 4/C Gee Yong Jorde By Terrina Weatherspoon Defense Media Activity
n the summer of 2011 Gee Mi Jorde joined the military. More specifically she was accepted to the United States Naval Academy. Three years later her sister, Gee Yong Jorde was also accepted. Throughout their lives these women were told that with hard work, they could do anything and be anything. With the wide integration happening across even those most exclusive of military communities, that statement has never been more true. “We knew growing up that we wanted to go to college and find a job that was rewarding for us personally, but that also gave back to our community and country,” said Gee Mi. “When it came time to choose, we were encouraged by a number of family friends who were Naval Academy graduates to strongly consider the school. For some reason, they thought our personalities, despite being rather opposite, were good fits for the school.” At first both girls felt that perhaps the idea of living a military lifestyle 24/7 throughout college would be overwhelming. But once they attended the academy’s summer seminar, the sense of camaraderie they felt amongst the midshipmen changed all that. They began to see themselves not only as midshipmen, but as contributing members in the United States Navy. “We chose the Navy because it was a service that we were familiar with, as we grew up around Navy/Marine Corps bases our entire lives and spent seven years in Yokosuka, Japan (2001-2008) during the peak of our childhoods,” said Gee Mi. “We also looked forward to the opportunity to serve in Japan since we are familiar with the language and culture and the needs of the Navy in Far East Asia.” Looking back on their childhoods now, they realize just how fortunate they were, with respect to their quality of life, their parents and their exposures. “We now realize that we took a lot of things for granted, like how our parents told us our only ‘job’ was to ensure we did well in school, remain active in sports that we enjoyed, and do something good for our community,” said Gee Mi. “We distinctly remember going to local orphanages during Christmases in Japan and as soon as we
moved to Washington State in the summer of 2008, we all volunteered at the local food bank. With our mother keeping us honest, we all stayed out of trouble for the most part and in return, we traveled extensively throughout Asia, visiting new countries every year.” Once their father retired from the Marine Corps, their mother made it quite clear that she did not want her children to have a transient childhood. Gee Mi was born in Yokosuka, but then the family moved to Georgia where Gee Yong and Erik, their younger brother, were born. “We lived in Georgia for six years, moved to Yokosuka for seven, and then have been in Washington State since then,” said Gee Mi. “We’ve been very fortunate to have found stable and supportive communities in each place.” Although they are not twins, the girls have spent most of their lives sharing things, even a first name. Despite these similarities, they have very different ideas for where they would like their careers to lead. “I intend to explore the foreign area officer community,” said Gee Mi. “I also know that I want to attend graduate school for environmental studies/policy, so we’ll see how that plays out.” “I’m interested in the public affairs aspect of the Navy,” said Gee Yong. “I also want to fit grad school in as well after some experience in the fleet.” Both women are hoping to end up in Yokosuka for their first tours as surface warfare officers. “Growing up in Japan had a profound impact on our career choice,” said Gee Mi. “Our mother grew up between Korea and Japan, so she introduced us to both cultures and languages and we even have friends of three generations there. We hope to take our strengths and our
assets and channel it toward something productive. With the current security environment in Asia as it is, it is crucial that the U.S. maintain its friendship and healthy alliance with Japan and its neighboring countries. The presence of U.S. forces forward deployed in Japan allows for us to use our interests and language/cultural awareness for the benefit of both countries.” Both women also hope to become strong role models, and can only hope to emulate the role models they’ve had. “No doubt our mother is both our number one female role model,” said Gee Mi. “In fact, our mom and dad were always the role models we shared. They say that behind every great man is a great woman. We should say ‘greater woman’ because that is the case with our mom. She recognizes each of our individual strengths and weaknesses, ensures that we know it too, but then helps us compensate for our weaknesses with our strengths.” And Gee Mi has also found another role model in Lt. Cmdr. Leslie Slootmaker. “She is a former aide to my current superintendent and we met two summers ago in Rhode Island. I admire her for her quiet, gentle and unassuming attitude, yet she is also willing to take on great challenges (as evidenced with her EOD pin) and truly inspires respect in others.” This year Gee Mi will graduate, followed in three years by Gee Yong. Young women with big dreams and nothing but opportunity and open doors in front of them. Gee Mi has even considered submarine duty, an assignment that at one time wouldn’t have even been an option. Throughout history parents have told their children they can do anything and be anything; for the Jorde sisters it may actually be true.

CNATT AMO class donates to local charity Story, photo by Ens. Andrew Groh NASWF Public Affairs
ommunity outreach and local support have long been a priority of U.S. military installations across the nation. As a display of that continued effort, students of the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Detachment Whiting Field’s (CNATT Det W.F.) Aviation Maintenance Officer (AMO) program made a donation of goods to the FavorHouse of Northwest Florida Inc. Located off Highway 90 in Milton (in the Timberland Plaza), FavorHouse of Northwest Florida Inc. is a domestic violence center serving Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Their mission is to serve victims of domestic violence and sexual assault by offering many options such as a shelter, 24-hour crisis hotline, community education, a scholarship program and others. With the goal of leaving behind a positive legacy before being sent to the fleet, Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP) Indoctrination Course Class 15-040 ap-
pointed Lt. Amy Ellison, a fellow student of the class, as their project leader. Her responsibility was to find a local organization that the class could reach out to. After some research, Ellison found the locally based FavorHouse. Ellison helped coordinate the effort with the assistance of her classmates by collecting donations offered by the staff and students and personally bringing the items to FavorHouse. Ellison, joined by classmate Ens. Robin Anton and class instructor AZC(AW) Adrian Lampkins, of the NAMP Indoctrination Course Class 15040, represented the AMO class to deliver the donation. Lampkins noted, “Lt. Ellison was involved with the Sexual Assault Prevention Response Program (SAPR) at her previous command and wanted to continue supporting the effort of helping victims of sexual abuse.

cessful donation effort that was near and dear to her heart.” The donation effort lasted one month where upon completion the goods were brought to the organization’s Milton location. As stated on the group’s website, goods consisted of: household linens, personal hygiene products, diapers, wet wipes, kitchen items, school supplies and many others. The three were met at the organization’s Milton location
by FavorHouse Office Assistant Cynthia Spiller and Outreach Counselor and Victim Advocate Nichole Horne. The two FavorHouse representatives gave a tour of the facility to the three class representatives as a way of explaining the mission of the FavorHouse and how they operate before collecting the donated goods. At the end of the tour, Ellison, Anton and Lampkins proceeded to unload a large SUV full of the items donated by
their AMO class. With a smile on her face, Spiller expressed her gratitude, “We want to thank (CNATT Det W.F.) so very much for what they are doing. This really helps us and our other locations better help those that need us. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and contribution. It feels so good to see people from the local area recognize what we offer and do whatever they can to help.”
NAS Whiting Field Commissary welcomes new director By Ens. Margaret Gresham NASWF Public Affairs
The Naval Air Station (NAS) Whiting Field Commissary team welcomed its newest member this year at the end of February – store director, Kristi Lynn. Lynn took over the position after former store director, Kim Jackson, took a new
position at the commissary located onboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville. Born in the small town of Independence, Iowa, Lynn has worked in the commissary business for more than 20 years. She received the new position as a promotion from the commissary located on Hurlburt Field in Okaloosa County.
“I absolutely love the
atmosphere at NAS Whiting Field,” Lynn said. “The people, the grounds, everything is so lovely here. I am looking forward to working with the commissary staff; they are all so knowledgeable and this commissary runs so smoothly, it practically runs itself.” Lynn said she has several goals for the future
of the commissary, mostly revolving around health and wellness. She believes health is very important in the Navy and she wants to be a part of the movement towards a Navy that focuses on wellness as a whole. Part of her plan involves integrating more premade sandwiches, fruit cups and meals that patrons can take advan-
tage of. Lynn also plans on providing shoppers with more of a variety of healthy snacks and options throughout the aisles. Lynn is happy to be on board and looks forward to accomplishing the commissaries goals of more satisfied customers, committed employees, and sound management practices.

Month of the Military Child
Military child month salutes children’s contributions From http://www.nctsn.org National Child Traumatic Stress Network
April is the Month of the Military Child. This awareness month was established to underscore the important role children play in the armed forces community. There are approximately 2 million military children, ranging in ages from newborn to 18 years old; 1.3 million military children are school-aged. Care of military children sustains our fighting force, and strengthens the health, security, and safety of the nation’s families and communities. Military children are the nation’s children. Living in either military or civilian communities, in urban, suburban, or rural settings, military children experience unique challenges related to military life and culture. These include deployment-related stressors such as parental separation, family reunification, and reintegration. Due to frequent moves, many military children experience disrupted relationships with friends, and must adapt to new schools and cultivate new community resources. Some children also experience the trauma of welcoming home a parent who returns with a combat injury or illness, or of facing a parent’s death. Recent research reveals an increase in military child maltreatment and neglect since the start of combat operations and deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. Research also indicates that although most military children are healthy and resilient, and may even have positive outcomes as a result of certain deployment stressors, some groups are more at risk. Among those are young children; some boys; children with preexisting health and mental health problems; children whose
Children of service members display courage and resilience in the face of frequent moves and deployment, and the DoD is committed to supporting their health and well-being.
parents serve in the National Guard, are reserve personnel, or have had multiple deployments; children who do not live close to military communities; children who live in places with limited resources; children in single-parent families with the parent deployed; and children in dual-military parent families with one or both parents deployed. Equipped with the right tools, military parents can serve as a buffer against the challenges their children face. Professionals in health care, family service, education, recreation and faith-based services who work with military families can also help reduce the distress that military children experience, and can foster individual and family resilience. In part, that means becoming familiar with the particular risks that can compromise a military child’s health and development. Care of the nation’s military children helps sustain the fighting force, and helps strengthen the health, security and safety of the nation’s families and communities.

NASC bids farewell to Lt. Cmdr. Webb By Ens. Andrew Parker NASC PAO
The National Naval Aviation Museum’s Blue Angel atrium was abuzz with anticipation and excitement recently, as Naval Aviation Schools Command’s (NASC) Lt. Cmdr. Phil Webb transitioned from the United States Navy to the life of retirement. Having started his military service with the United States Marine Corps Reserve in 1988, Webb has had a naval career that touched upon many. His naval officer career managed a full circle, starting at NAS Pensacola when he was commissioned in 1995 through Officer Candidate School (OCS), at that time part of NASC, and now, retiring from the service as an instructor at NASC.
After completing NASC’s aviation preflight indoctrination, he began training with VT-28 at NAS Corpus Christi in Texas. In September 1997, he was winged as a naval aviator after completing advanced flight training with HT-8 at NAS Whiting Field. His first fleet tour was with HSL-51 “Warlords” in NAF Atsugi, Japan. With the “Warlords,” Webb served billets as administrative officer, intelligence officer, operations and helicopter aircraft commander deploying aboard USS Cushing (DD 985), USS Mobile Bay (CG 53) and USS Chancellorsville (CG 62). Upon completion of his sea tour, he was assigned as a flight instructor with HT-8 at NAS Whiting Field. There, he logged more 1,200 mishap-free flight hours, and more than 3,200 total flight hours in his career. From 20082011, as a naval attaché, he was posted in the U.S. Em-
bassy in Valletta, Malta. Webb volunteered as a part of Operation Enduring Freedom and trained at NAS Patuxent River to fly the MQ-8B Firescout Unmanned Aerial System. He served in Afghanistan in 2012 as a UAV operator, mission commander and det schedules officer supporting the United States Army and coalition forces. His final tour was with NASC from 2012-2015, where he was an instructor teaching aviation weather, aircraft engines and systems, crew resource management and naval aviation history. In 2016, he plans to attend the University of West Florida for a master’s degree in business administration – adding another master’s to his previous degree in military studies (air warfare).

CyberThon produces $10,000 for STEM college scholarships From AFCEA Blue Angels Pensacola Chapter
ocal high school students pursuing advanced education in a STEM field (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math) are eligible for new funding in the form of Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) scholarships. The AFCEA Blue Angels Pensacola Chapter is making $10,000 in college funds available to local graduates as a result of the recent CyberThon event that gave high school students a chance to test their cyber-security skills against real-time cyber attacks. CyberThon garnered widespread support across the Pensacola region, and sponsor donations are now being put to work to continue the effort of supporting STEM students. “This really is at the heart of the
AFCEA mission,” said Randy Ramos, chapter president. “One of the core values of the AFCEA international organization is to do everything possible to further the education of the local communities we serve, which is why we work so hard to raise support and make scholarships possible. The Pensacola tech community has really stepped up in recent months, and we are thrilled to be helping students in partnership with their generosity.”
About the organization Founded in 1946, the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) International’s roots trace back to the American Civil War. The AFCEA Blue Angels Pensacola Chapter has been raising scholarship funds for local technology students for more than a decade. For more information, go to http://afceapensacola.org.
One of the key contributors making the scholarships possible is the Escambia County Sheriff's Office, which donated $20,000 to the CyberThon. Additional sponsors included Hixardt Technologies Inc., GBSI Inc., Northrop Grumman, Navy Federal Credit Union, The University of West Florida Innovation Institute, The UWF Center for Cybersecurity,
Fortinet, Escambia County Commissioner Doug Underhill, Gulf Power, the Greater Pensacola Chamber, Community Economic Development Association, Innovation Coast, IT Gulf Coast and TeKSystems. While the CyberThon was a catalyst for this round of scholarship awards, students that apply are not limited to cybersecurity studies. Any high school senior bound for college in a science, technology, engineering or math track is eligible to apply. The AFCEA board of directors will award up to 10 scholarships of $1,000 each, or higher amounts if fewer students apply. Additional information, applications and submission instructions are available at http://afceapensacola. org/scholarships. The deadline for application submission is April 27, and awards will be announced by May 31.

SAPR 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.
