NASP CPOs celebrate chiefs’ 122nd birthday By MC2(SW) Kaitlyn C. Boland NMOTC PAO

More than 100 chief petty officers (CPOs) in the NAS Pensacola area celebrated the 122nd birthday of their rate April 1 with a group photo at NASP headquarters and a celebration at the NAS Pensacola Chief Petty Officers Club. The birthday celebration, an all-CPO evolution including remarks from area command master chiefs and a cake-cutting ceremony, signified the unique bond members of the world’s largest maritime fraternity share, according to Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) FORCM Jon Port. “Whether you’re a chief, senior chief, master chief, force (chief), or MCPON (Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy), we’re all chief petty officers,” Port said. “The foundation is still an anchor and the foundation of what we do for our Navy is still the same. It’s with a humble leadership style and a forward vision.” The seventh enlisted rate in the United States Navy is that of a senior non-commissioned officer, officially established

April 1, 1893. Prior to 1958, chief petty officer was the highest enlisted rank in the U.S. Navy. This changed, however, on May 20, 1958, with the passage of the Military Pay Act of 1958, establishing two new pay grades in all five branches of the U.S. Armed Forces – senior chief petty officer (E-8) and master chief petty officer (E-9) in the U.S. Navy. NASP CMDCM Jeffery Grosso said that with the evergrowing network of the CPO community comes the ability to care for Sailors in various ways – with a force of anchors to stand behind one another as a foundation. “I think it’s very important that we get together – not only on our birthday – but on several occasions to build this camaraderie and to further help our Sailors,” he said. Navy Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) senior enlisted leader HMCS Robert Flowers said the birthday celebration represented an opportunity to showcase to the Pensacola-area community the

Give hope to a child ... Pinwheels for Prevention started as a grassroots campaign among child abuse prevention organizations in Georgia, Florida and Ohio, and in 2008 became a national symbol of “the chance at a healthy, happy and full life for all children.” During the month of April, National Child Abuse Prevention Month (NCAPM), NASP Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) are presenting “Pinwheel Gardens” at both NASP and Corry Child Development Centers (CDCs), where toddlers and preschool children will be able to “pick” a pinwheel to take home to “plant.” (Above, left-right) At NASP FFSC, staffers Alice Pearson, Susan Rivazfar and Lori Landau plant a pinwheel garden to raise NCAPM awareness.

SAAPM: How to support a friend if an assault has occurred By Kristy Malone NASP Fleet and Family Support Center

Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) is observed every April across civilian and military communities. The goal of SAAPM is to increase awareness about the long-lasting and far reaching consequences of sexual assault,

and to support victims of sexual crimes. After a sexual assault occurs, victims may not know what to do or who to talk to. Are you the kind of friend someone would turn to if they had been assaulted? “Sexual assault” is defined as intentional sexual contact, characterized by use of force, threats, intimi-

dation, abuse of authority, or when the victim does not or cannot consent. “Consent” means words or overt acts indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual conduct by a competent person. Incapacitation due to alcohol or prescription drugs, being pressured or threatened, being asleep or unconscious, or being physically

overpowered do not constitute consent. Whether the victim is male or female, statistics show that most are assaulted by someone they know. Often by someone they thought they could trust. Reactions to an assault vary greatly depending on the individual. One person may be extremely emotional while another may appear completely calm or even

emotionless. These reactions are not indicators of whether they actually experienced a traumatic event or how bad it was. There also may not be any visible injuries or signs of a struggle. A common misconception people have about sexual assault is that if the victim didn’t fight back, he or she must have

If you have driven on Radford Boulevard recently and have seen the construction taking place in front of the Daniel Rex Biddle Training Center Aviation Rescue Swimmer School (ARSS), you may have a few questions. Members of the United States Air Force’s 823rd Rapid Engineer Deployable Heavy Operational Repair Squadron Engineers (RED HORSE) from Hurlbert Field are aboard NAS Pensacola to build a concrete training pad for the school.

The concrete training pad will replace the current training area, which is a nonlevel and grassy area. Building this new training pad will provide a hard surface to train on and allow for a safer, level area for the students. There will be two concrete slabs built, both slabs measuring 48 feet by 92 feet. “It has been at least two years since a military construction group has been aboard NASP,” said NASP Public Works Officer Cmdr. Jeff Deviney. “It is always good to have military construction aboard our base. It saves money (compared to

Rock N Fly 2015 ‘rocked’ for NMCRS Pensacola From NMCRS Pensacola Communications

For the second year in a row, the Rock N Fly Half Marathon and 5K has been a huge success with a significant part of the proceeds benefitting the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) and those they serve. Not only did it provide $45,000 in funds, but also gave NMCRS personnel the opportunity to participate in the races as well as promote their programs and services. NMCRS Director Mark Harden and event promoters were “thrilled” to see NMCRS employees and volunteers par-

“We, at Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, are extremely pleased with the $45,000 dona-

tion from the Rock N Fly this year,” Harden said. “The funds will help us provide important programs for our local Sailors, Marines and families. Even though this is only the second year for the run, it has become the top fundraiser for the society outside of the D.C. area. “We appreciate the support we received from local service members who made the run possible but especially to Capt. Maureen Padden and Cmdr. Mike Kohler at the Naval Hospital and Capt. (Keith) Hoskins, the base commanding officer, for allowing and enabling the runs to take place.”

Base residents: Help prevent drain blockages A condition at NAS Pensacola regarding wastewater (sewage) is occurring that has costly and potentially hazardous consequences. In recent weeks, Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) has approached the Public Works Department regarding excessive levels of contaminants and solid debris found in their system. The initial observations of the contaminants indicate ground food, solvents and solid debris is regularly found in the lift stations. The solid debris is commonly rags and other cloth cleaning materials, clothing articles and household garbage. The solid debris has been responsible for major equipment damage to Navy-and-ECUA owned lift stations and also make it difficult to run effective tests on wastewater. The following are some common sense reminders to help you become part of the solution rather than part of the problem: Do not: Flush trash down the toilet. Do not: Pour fats, oils and grease from cooking down the sink drain. Do not: Use the sewer as a means to dispose of food scraps. Do not: Flush diapers, sanitary napkins, tampons, plastics, etc. Do not: Pour paint, engine oil, pesticides or chemicals down the sink or down the toilet. Help protect the wastewater system and taxpayers dollars; do the right thing – dispose of unwanted items in a proper manner. USAF from page 1

The 823rd RED HORSE squadron is traveling each day from Hulbert Field, which saves money on room and board. Deviney said personnel may see another military construction group aboard NASP in the coming months, the Navy SEABEES (Construction Battalion) from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 1. The SEABEES are scheduled to come to NASP from Gulfport, Miss., to build a parking lot for the National Naval Aviation Museum. CPOs from page 1

unique bond the chief petty officer rank employs. “The importance of this celebration is to show our Sailors that we still hold on to that tradition that has allowed us to be the most successful Navy on this earth,” he said. “It allows us to come together, to develop a sense of camaraderie among chiefs throughout various rates (and) various duty stations. It shows that we’re one, regardless of where you are. ” Distinct among the U.S. Armed Forces, the United States Navy and United States Coast Guard, advancement to chief petty officer not only carries requirements of time in service, superior evaluation scores and specialty examinations, but also carries an added requirement of peer review. A chief petty officer can only advance after review by a selection board of serving senior and master chief petty officers. The brief ceremony also included a cake cutting and a presentation on the history of chief petty officers in the Pensacola area.

wanted it. In reality, when encountered with a threat, people don’t just react with the fight or flight response – there is a third response: freeze. Researchers call this “catatonic immobility” (Dr. Rebecca Campbell, Michigan State University), and it is a very typical reaction to a trauma such as rape. Victims frequently describe it as “I just froze up” or “I could not move or even speak.” It is the body’s way of self-preservation; a subconscious decision that it is safer to remain still rather than fight back and risk further harm. Because of this involuntary freezing, many victims blame themselves for not fighting back or escaping the situation and worry that others will blame them as well. The best thing you can do for a friend is to believe and support them. The support that a victim receives immediately following the assault will significantly impact their recovery and long-term outcomes. Those who feel they are judged,

not believed, or are blamed for what happened to them can experience lasting negative effects for years to come. However, those victims who feel supported, believed, and empowered tend to recover with greater resilience. Being a supportive friend means being understanding instead of pressuring and focusing on the victim’s emotions rather than your own. Remember that a victim of sexual assault has experienced something they didn’t choose, and it’s important that they be able to make choices for themselves going forward. Even the most well-intentioned friend could cause further harm by pressuring or forcing a victim to make a report or take action they aren’t ready to take. Maintain the victim’s right to a restricted report if that is what their preference is. Let him or her know that a victim advocate can explain options and get them access to services without having to make a report at all. You may find yourself impacted by the assault also – don’t hesitate to talk to a counselor or a chaplain, and be sure to

take care of yourself. Remember that you don’t have to have all the answers or provide all of the help a victim needs.

Leading the Navy and Marine Corps: A global perspective ecretary of the Navy Ray Mabus recently surpassed one million miles of S travel during his time in office. Since taking office in 2009, he has been to more than 130 countries and territories visiting with forward-deployed Sailors and Marines, enhancing the nation’s international partnerships and promoting the presence uniquely provided by the Navy and Marine Corps team. He achieved the million mile mark upon arrival at Iwo Jima, where he took part in a ceremony honoring those who, like their counterparts today, fought far from home, in the historic battle for Iwo Jima more than 70 years ago. The following is his account of why the leader of the world’s premier expeditionary – global – fighting force must, to be effective, also be global. By Ray Mabus 75th Secretary of the Navy

Our world faces a global security environment full of uncertainty and change. Social disorder, political upheaval, and technological advancement across the planet continue into the 21st century and have a dramatic impact on world affairs. For the United States of America, the Navy and Marine Corps provide global presence on a scope that is unmatched. That presence gives our national leadership options in times of crisis, from diplomatic opportunities, to humanitarian assistance missions, to combat operations when needed. To do my job as secretary of the Navy it is critical to understand that global landscape, the security challenges, and opportunities. Briefings and power point slides can never match the value of firsthand observation,

as anyone who has served aboard a ship, at a forward outpost, or in a war zone, can tell you. I’m proud of the fact that in almost six years as secretary, I’ve logged more than one million miles to visit the Sailors, Marines and civilians on the front lines around the globe. I talk with them about their concerns and reassure them that a distant America hasn’t forgotten them. Sharing a meal with our nation’s sons and daughters and answering their questions at “all hands calls” is the only way to get their “deck-plate” view, a view which is vital to making the right personnel decisions and policy choices back in the Pentagon. That’s the “recruit and train” part of the secretary’s responsibilities as outlined in our Constitution and federal law. I’m also responsible for “equipping” our Navy and Marine Corps and

my travels enable me to see the condition of the bases and facilities where our Sailors and Marines live and work. In talking with senior uniformed leaders I get a feeling for what might be needed in the future, or ways that we can improve our efficiency and capability today. From Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti on the Horn of Africa, to 12 visits to Afghanistan, to long standing bases in allied nations like Japan and Korea, I visit these locations in order to assess how well the taxpayers’ dollars are being spent, and how we might best improve those conditions. Third, as part of our nation’s defense strategy which encourages us to build and strengthen our international partnerships, I visit with foreign military and government leaders. Those meetings are critical to building relationships that can help us deter conflict or respond in a

more coordinated and effective manner to a variety of crises. For 239 years our Navy and Marine Corps have been a vital element of our nation’s diplomatic efforts. That continues today. You cannot surge trust. The relationships with our allies must be maintained, and trust must continue to be built with new friends and established partners. No single nation has the capability to secure the maritime commons and protect free trade and security around the world alone. We must work with our allies, partners, and friends to ensure the global system remains secure. These first hand observations have assisted our department’s ability to accomplish what is

needed for our nation’s security. From reversing the decline in the number of ships, to completing the negotiations needed for the forward stationing of ships in places like Spain and Singapore, to signing energy agreements with Australia, Italy, and Chile, we have achieved a great deal. The insight I gain from talking with our deployed service members also helps guide important personnel policy decisions like the authorization of high tempo deployment pay. It has been my great honor to serve as secretary, leading the 900,000 Sailors, Marines, and civilians who make up the Department of the Navy. In that time I have visited more than 130 country and territories in order to make sure I’m getting the unvarnished truth and onthe-ground understanding of our global challenges. It is my responsibility to do this, despite the hectic schedules, because I must have the right information in order to make the right decisions for the Department of the Navy. Our Navy and Marine Corps are the most powerful expeditionary fighting force the world has ever known, and it is our job, no matter the circumstances, to keep it so.

CNO stresses versatility of Independence class LCS By Ens. Michael Torres Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs


hief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert and U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller stressed the versatility of the Independence-class littoral combat ships (LCS) April 1 at a press conference onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. After touring the USS Independence (LCS 2) with the congressman, the CNO highlighted the value of the LCS’ ability to be repackaged for multiple missions. “The thing that is of value about the LCS is that she has great volume, high speed, and is modular,” said Greenert. “What that means is you can change out packages to perform different missions.” “Currently the Independence is configured for mine countermeasures operations, but she can be reconfigured for other mis-

sions including maritime security or anti-submarine warfare. These packages could be forward-deployed around the world in hot spots, where in a matter of a few days, the ship could be changed as necessary to meet the demand,” Greenert said. The ship has been testing its new anti-mine warfare technology in the Gulf of Mexico since Feb. 20, and will be docking between sorties at NAS Pensacola throughout its training operation. Greenert praised the experience of the crew testing the new LCS saying it allows the Navy to

be more efficient with crew management. “These Sailors on board the ship are more senior than the average Sailor,” he said. “They’ve been in the Navy for four to six years. This enables us to keep the crew to half of what it would normally be on a conventional ship.”

The CNO also addressed the pace of construction for these new ships. “In the future I expect to see continued construction of the LCS platform. We took a pause and decided we need 52 of these ships,” said Greenert. “The Secretary of Defense asked us to

take a look at this and see if we could make these more survivable and more lethal. We’ve done that and we are all guns ahead.” Miller was thanked by the CNO for his work in Congress in aiding military personnel and veterans. The representative likewise thanked the CNO for letting him visit the ship. “It’s been an outstanding tour of a great new capability that we have in the United States Navy,” said Miller. “I appreciate not only seeing this great vessel, but being able to talk to the men and women of the USS Independence.” For more information on the Littoral Combat Ship, visit For more news from Naval Education and Training Command, visit www. navy. mil/ local/ cnet/.

CNO recognizes NATTC CSADD as Training Chapter of the Year By Ens. Jason Buckley Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert met with members of a Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) group April 1, recognizing them as the 2014 CSADD Training the Chapter of the Year. “The first time I heard of CSADD, I was amazed and excited about the idea of people like you coming together,” said Greenert. “This is an outstanding example of your generation and we are all impressed that you are willing to take charge, working together to keep bad things from happening.” After presenting the Training Chapter of the Year plaque to the Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) CSADD chapter’s board members, the CNO opened the floor for questions.

AC2 Michael Rivellette asked the CNO about expectations, since CSADD became an independent organization in October 2014. “I don’t have expectations, but I have recommended that CSADD chapters be given the opportunity by their commands to grow and succeed,” said Greenert. “This includes use of facilities and support for the things that they want to do.” Supporting the NATTC student chapter is a cadre of senior petty officers serving as chapter advocates. AO1 Alexanna Williams serves as lead advocate, but stresses that it’s the students that run the program. She added that it was an honor to win Training Chapter of the Year. “The students – they come up with the ideas, they put in the man-hours and

make this program a success,” said Williams. “It was very impressive that the CNO took the time to speak with and recognize our CSADD chapter – it’s easy to see that it’s a program that he really believes in.” Cmdr. Vic Bindi, NATTC executive officer, pointed out that CSADD members also tend to be classroom top performers. “I think the people who join CSADD, not only are they ones who are less likely to engage in disciplinary issues, they’re the ones who time-and-time again are the leaders within every single class,” said Bindi. CSADD members come together voluntarily and grow with very basic command support. The NATTC chapter began with 36 students in 2012 and now includes 323 service members, 56 of

whom are Marines and 10 Airmen. The chapter typically schedules events that reinforce the idea of having fun without alcohol; ranging from formal black-tie affairs to monthly sporting events. Many of the local CSADD members and advocates take the lessons they learn here in Pensacola back to the fleet. “When I go to my next command, I’m taking all I learned here with me,” said AB1 Melanie McCollum, NATTC chapter advocate. “It’s been fun.” For more information on CSADD, visit: ages/default2.aspx.

Silent professionals: History of the rank of chief petty officer By MC1 Daniel Garas Defense Logistics Agency Public Affairs


ffectively running and fighting a warship relies on bridging the gap between officers and enlisted personnel. It was from this need that the creation of the rank of chief petty officer was born.

Since the days of antiquity, highly skilled seamen have been prized for their knowledge and skill. As vessels grew more complex, duties began to split into different responsibilities, which evolved into a rating system that was first formally organized by Britain’s Royal Navy and later adopted by the U.S. Navy. This system of rank and position aboard a ship traces its roots to English society. In his book “England’s Sea-Officers,” author Michael Lewis describes the creation of this system as a mix of two hierarchies, one of official ranks and a social divide between gentlemen and non-gentlemen. According to “History of the Chief Petty Officer Grade,” by U.S. Navy CWO4 Lester B. Tucker, the earliest known use of the term dates back to 1776 when Jacob Wasbie, a cook’s mate, was pronounced “Chief Cook” aboard USS Alfred. Although given the title, Tucker surmised that rather than hold any position of authority amongst the crew, it was to denote him as the foremost cook aboard the ship amongst his peers in his rating. Perhaps the earliest formal attempt to create the rank of chief petty officer came in 1853. Jason M. Juergens, author of the “Chief Petty Officer Leadership Thesis,” wrote that as manning levels increased to accommodate a growing fleet, attempts to establish the precedence of petty officers under Navy regulations began.

Initially approved by the president, it was revoked a few months later by the attorney general, as only Congress could approve these regulations. The rank of chief petty officer as it is recognized today was officially established April 1, 1893, and with the exception of schoolmasters, ships’ writers and carpenters’ mates, all petty officers of the first class were automatically shifted to the new rank in April 1895. Ratings have come and gone to evolve with the modernization of the Navy, but chief petty officers have been used to head these ratings in official capacities since 1893. According to Tucker, only two ratings have remained in continuous use since 1797 – boatswain’s mate and gunner’s mate. Armed with official recognition, chiefs of the past went on to lay the foundation for their modern day counterparts. As servantleaders, they acted as the unique lynchpin between officers and enlisted personnel who executed daily operations, and also took a leading role in the career development of junior petty officers. Additionally, chiefs were celebrated not only for their technical expertise, but their administrative abilities as well. Knowledge in the intricacies of the ship’s daily operations and ability to coordinate with various departments gave chiefs unique abilities that were unrivaled by even the most senior officers.

With this newly recognized position of authority and expertise they were bestowed with uniform devices to recognize their merit. At first, the only distinction was the advent of a rocker to their rating badge. According to Juergens, borrowing the masterat-arms rating that used three stripes, a single rocker was added and became official in 1894. The fouled anchor as a cap device was introduced in 1905; collar devices did not become an official part of the uniform until 1959. Additionally, chiefs were given their own space on ships. Referred to as the “Chief’s Mess,” it is off-limits to anyone else (officer or enlisted) without invitation and is affectionately called the “Goat Locker.” Up until World War II, chiefs evolved into disciplinarians that exercised and dispended a great deal of unwritten naval law. According to “The Role of the Chief Petty Officer in the Modern Navy” by Don A. Kelso, “they served as exacting supervisors, highly proficient specialists and acted as advocates to higher authority.” After World War II, the demobilized Navy was left with a top-heavy organization that frequently utilized chiefs in billets normally filled by junior petty officers. Kelso cites that this overflow of manpower, compounded with administrative overhauls to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which frowned upon negative enforcement of discipline, began to obscure

the basic importance of the chief petty officer in the modern Navy. The changes did not go unnoticed. As Kelso writes, both chief petty officers and commissioned officers recognized the dangers of reducing the vital role of chiefs from servant leaders to mere figureheads. Efforts began to repurpose the mess to reflect the prewar role of the chief as leaders, specialists and the main liaison official between officers and the enlisted Sailor. “The chief petty officer is responsible for three facets of leadership relative to the men placed in his charge,” Kelso writes. The effective discipline of their Sailors, the effective supervising of the work their Sailors perform, and finally, to act as an advocate for their Sailors’ best interests. These repurposing efforts of the past have carried on reflecting the chief of today’s Navy. Chief petty officers fulfill a vital function in the operation of the Navy’s military and work schedule. Drawing on their past, they serve as technical experts, act as the liaison to commissioned officers and possess the ability to establish and maintain the conditions that provide Sailors with opportunities for success. The ability to bridge the gap and provide solutions to both officers and enlisted personnel makes them not only silent professionals, but also ensures the mantra, “ask the chief,” shall remain a vital part of the Navy well into its future.

Sexual assault prevention highlighted in April By Ens. Margaret Gresham NASWF Public Affairs


hroughout the next four to five weeks, Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF), the Navy and the nation will be observing Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM). Recognized every April, the month is dedicated to raising awareness about sexual assault and its victims. NASWF’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) office supports victims of sexual assault, but is also here to raise awareness and forward ideas that help Sailors intervene before sexual assaults occur. Sexual assault is any unwanted verbal, nonverbal or physical sexual contact, and is characterized by use of force, physical threat, abuse of authority, or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Traditional thought views sexual assault as primarily associated with maleon-female “attacks.” However men can equally be victims. The sexual assault prevention and response team seeks to break this mischaracterization of sexual assault and inform people about

the truth of sexual assault – that anyone can be a victim. Male victims in the Navy, as in the general population, represent an underreported segment of an underreported crime. This concerns the SAPR team and focuses their attention on reemphasizing the multi-gender nature of the crime. The team at Whiting Field is trying to reduce stigma associated with sexual assault and is working to get the word out and help victims feel comfortable about coming forward and making reports. “I want victims to know they will be supported regardless of gender, race, job, or sexual orientation,” Sexual Assault Response Coordinator Kristen Klein stated. “We are here to provide them all the information, resources and referrals necessary to make the decision that is best for them. It is the victim’s

right to choose how to proceed with the avenue that is best suited to their case.” SAPR statistics show there is a stigma associated with men being sexually assaulted. They feel emasculated, fear they are perceived as weak, or are embarrassed to come forward. The Pentagon anonymously surveyed male victims of sexual assault who declined to report the incident and reported that nearly half of the surveyed pool didn’t want anyone to know. Thirty percent said they didn’t think anything would be done and approximately 20 percent were afraid of retaliation or reprisals. One other main goal of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month is to promote the real definition of “consent.” Traditionally people viewed the word “no” as the only thing that did not give the person consent;

however, the SAPR team wants to emphasize that it must be a conscious, clear minded, nonaltered discussion between the two participants. If there is any question, or either partner is not 100 percent on board, then they should not partake in any sexual acts. The only real definition of consent is a cut and dry conversation between the two partners that involves both saying “yes.” SAPR Victim Advocate, Dora Ford, stated, “If two people cannot sit down and have a mature conversation about whether or not a situation is

consensual, then they should probably not be in that situation at all.” Anyone can be a victim and the SAPR team is available to support all victims and inform them of all the options available to them. They want to ensure the victims know they have rights and can stand up for those rights if they wish. 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 raise awareness, help victims, and protect Marines and Sailors from becoming victims. Klein stated, “It is important to raise awareness about sexual assault; it is a crime that affects thousands, mentally and physically, every year. Our goal is to raise awareness not only in April but throughout the year. We want to shine a light on the SAPR program and let people know this is an ongoing battle we are still fighting, we have made vast improvements over the years but we still have a long way to go, and we need your help to do so.” For more news from Naval Air Station Whiting Field, visit www. navy. mil/ local/ naswf/.

NASWF Roswell, N.M., detachment a success By Ens. Margaret Gresham NASWF Public Affairs

A formation of orange and white “unidentified flying objects” invaded the skies of Roswell, N.M., this winter; however it wasn’t aliens in dark green suits that climbed out of the unfamiliar aircraft. Rather it was the men and women of Training Air Wing Five (TraWing-5) exiting their T-6B Texan IIs. The end of March closes out a nineweek winter detachment in Roswell N.M. where TraWing-5 sent Training Squadrons Two, Three and Six (VT-2, VT-3 and VT-6) to train day and night at Roswell International Air Center. Each squadron spent three weeks there from January to March. The 2015 remote training at Roswell was the second year in which TraWing-5 sought out better winter weather than

found in Northwest Florida. However, weather was a challenge this year. Statistically speaking, Roswell has much better weather for flying during this portion of the year. Unfortunately, Roswell had its fair share of rain and snow during the detachment. VT-2 and VT-6 had to brave most of the Roswell weather; they faced several snow storms that slowed training. The Roswell detachment also allowed students to adapt and prepare for an unfamiliar place under time constraints. In the real world, aviators will be operating in foreign waters and lands where they only have days, maybe even hours, to prepare. It also afforded the students an opportunity to experience training at different altitudes; Roswell is roughly 4,000 feet higher in elevation than Pensacola. VT-3 was blessed with better weather throughout their three weeks of training

in February. They had 25 aircraft and 35 instructors and were able to complete over 70 events per day on occasion. The fast paced operations provided invaluable experience for the students and simulated operations and the pace of a squadron on deployment. Lt. Chelsea Brunoehler, who works for TraWing-5 operations, spent nine weeks on the detachment and was in charge of running many of the daily logistics. She emphasized that the statistics highlighted a successful two months despite the weather. “We flew 4,225 hours on the Roswell detachment, which was very comparable to last year’s det,” Brunoehler said. “We had hoped to ramp up our production significantly this year, since we had more available aircraft, but the weather set back our goals. Seeing as we would have utilized those 25 planes and 115 person-

nel back home as well, we believe we gained an additional 1,800 hours or 900 events by going on the detachment this year.” Cmdr. Ryan Yost, chief staff officer for TraWing-5, stated, “The TraWing-5 winter detachment to Roswell, N.M., was definitely a success. Despite having worse than the average seasonal weather, like much of the country experienced this winter, the det still accounted for nearly 50 percent of all the wing mission during this timeframe using only 25 percent of our assets. This is thanks to the hard work of the instructor pilots and Dyncorp maintainers, who were extremely efficient when the weather did cooperate. In addition, the Airmen, Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsman of TW-5 engaged in several community relations outreach programs with local veterans, schools and the great people of Roswell.”

CNATT announces Civilian of the Year; See page B2 Spotlight





ational Child Abuse Prevention Month (NCAPM) is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families. During the month of April and throughout the year, communities are encouraged to share child abuse and neglect prevention awareness strategies and activities and promote prevention across the country. Understanding child abuse and neglect: When children are nurtured, they can grow up to be happy and healthy adults. But when they lack an attachment to a caring adult, receive inconsistent nurturing, or experience harsh discipline, the consequences can affect their lifelong health, well-being and relationships with others. The following is a collection of information to help service providers and others concerned about the health and well-being of children to understand child abuse and neglect, its effects, and what each of us can do to address it when it occurs. What is child abuse and neglect? Child abuse or neglect

often takes place in the home at the hands of a person the child knows well – a parent, relative, babysitter, or friend of the family. There are four major types of child maltreatment. Although any of the forms may be found separately, they often occur together. Each state is responsible for establishing its own definitions of child abuse and neglect that meet federal minimum standards. Most include the following: • Neglect is failure to provide for a child’s basic needs. • Physical abuse is physical injury as a result of hitting, kicking, shaking, burning, or otherwise harming a child. • Sexual abuse is any situation where a child is used for sexual gratification. This may include indecent exposure, fondling, rape, or commercial exploitation through prostitution or the production of porno-

graphic materials. • Emotional abuse is any pattern of behavior that impairs a child’s emotional development or sense of self-worth, including constant criticism, threats and rejection. Why does child abuse occur? Child abuse and neglect affect children of every age, race, and income level. However, research has identified

pline. • Stress. Families struggling with poverty, unstable housing, divorce or unemployment may be at greater risk. • Substance abuse. The effects of substance use, as well as time, energy, and money spent obtaining drugs or alcohol, significantly impair parents’ abilities to care for their children.

many factors relating to the child, family, community, and society that are associated with an increased risk of child abuse and neglect. Studies also have shown that when multiple risk factors are present, the risk is greater. Some of the most common risk factors include the following: • Immaturity. Young parents may lack experience with children or be unprepared for the responsibility of raising a child. • Unrealistic expectations. A lack of knowledge about normal child development or behavior may result in frustration and, ultimately, abusive disci-

• Intergenerational patterns of abuse. Parents’ own experiences of childhood trauma impact their relationships with their children. • Isolation. Effective parenting is more difficult when parents lack a supportive partner, family, or community. These circumstances, combined with the inherent challenges of raising children, can result in otherwise well-intentioned parents causing their children harm or neglecting their needs. On the other hand, evidence shows that the great majority of families who experience these circumstances will

not abuse or neglect their children. How many children are abused and neglected in the United States? In federal fiscal year (FFY) 2013, the most recent year for which national child maltreatment statistics are available, about 3.5 million reports were made to child protective services concerning the safety and well-being of approximately 6.4 million children. As a result of these reports, a nationally estimated 679,000 (unique count) children were found to be victims of child abuse or neglect. (Unique count is defined as counting each child only once regardless of the number of reports of abuse and neglect.) Of these children, 79.5 percent were neglected, 18 percent were physically abused, and 9 percent were sexually abused. Child deaths are the most tragic results of maltreatment. In FFY 2013, an estimated 1,520 children died due to abuse or neglect. Of the children who died, 71.4 percent suffered neglect and 46.8 percent suffered physical abuse either exclusively or in combination with another maltreatment type. What can I do if I suspect child abuse or neglect? Anyone can and should report suspected child abuse or neglect. If you think a child is being mistreated, take immediate action. You can call the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at 1800-4-A-CHILD (800422-4453).

Take a moment to support NAS Pensacola and NASP Fleet and Family Support Center’s efforts to raise awareness about child abuse prevention: go to and take the pledge.

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:; 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.
