Pensacola area commands sign Sexual Assault Awareness Month proclamation By Ed Barker NETC PAO

The major tenant commands in the Pensacola area joined forces during Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) by signing a proclamation April 5 encouraging all personnel to participate in SAAPM events, reach out to victims, learn more about the crime of Sexual Assault and intervene to prevent it. Capt. Keith Hoskins, commanding officer of Naval Air Station Pensacola, invited major tenant commands to sign the proclamation as stakeholders and to work as a team during SAAPM. “This proclamation allows us to come together as leadership, so collectively we can take ownership of this major issue that has plagued our military service,” said Hoskins. “It allows us to make sure the right folks are in place to assist us in our daily drumbeat of reducing and mitigating sexual assault within our commands.” Rear Adm. Don Quinn, commander of Naval Education and Training Command penned the final signature, completing the proclamation. “As tenant commands on bases around the world, NETC activities are proud to be a part of this combined effort for SAAPM,” said Quinn. “Here in Pensacola, our school houses are active participants in Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention. Training commands take civilian volunteers and develop them into motivated, high quality Sailors. Part of the knowledge we impart is that assault goes against our ethos, it is a crime that will not be tolerated, and victims have advocates in their Navy leaders.” The Navy’s theme for the month is “Courage” and supports the Department of Defense’s theme of “We own it

Navy cancels Blues 2013 performances Story, photo by Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

Blue Angels Flight Leader and Commanding Officer Cmdr. Tom Frosch led a press conference April 9 at NAS Pensacola’s Forrest Sherman Field to confirm the news fans have been dreading: the remainder of the Blues 2013 air show performances have been canceled. “We held off on that decision as long as possible in the hope that we’d salvage some portion of our season,” Frosch told reporters. “Unfortunately, we’ve reached the point where that’s no longer possible.” The squadron will continue to train at NASP to maintain flying proficiency until further notice, but the widely attended public practices at the base are canceled along with the air shows.

Cmdr. Tom Frosch, center, flight leader and commanding officer of the Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, answers questions at a press conference held April 9 on the team’s flight line at NASP.

“For us here in Pensacola, it means we’re going to focus our flying locally at a level that just keeps the pilots at a safe, proficient level. Quite a bit less than we ordinarily

fly. Members of the team will fly one or two times a week for a total of 10-12 hours per month – typical fleet flight hours. “Our hope is that we

will get turned on for the 2014 season and get back up to full speed and have a great season next year,” Frosch said. Commander Naval Air Forces (CNAF) issued a

statement earlier in the day outlining the news. “Recognizing budget realities, current Defense policy states that outreach

A time capsule, buried 15 years ago by the staff and children at Corry Child Development Center (CDC), was unearthed April 5. The time capsule had been planted to celebrate the opening of a nature area created by the “School Age” program children. Located behind the CDC, this area was developed to help the children gain a sense of appreciation for nature and includes activities that stimulate health and fitness. “The kids were excited to join in,” said Carissa Bergosh, NASP school liaison officer. “They showed their excitement with smiles and laughter but also ‘oohs and aahs’ when the contents were taken out of the time capsule.” Favorite toys and pictures were in the time capsule, along with some surprises. “We found some newspaper ads and were surprised to find that gas was $1.94 gallon,” Bergosh said. “If only that was true today ... ”

NHP: Same day appointments with Medical Home Port By MC1James Stenberg Assistant Public Affairs Officer, Naval Hospital Pensacola

A common misconception when it comes to health care is the wait associated with making appointments. That is not the case with the Medical Home Port program at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP), where same day appointments and patients seeing their assigned provider are top priorities. Medical Home Port is a team based approach to primary health care where patients are assigned to a specific Medical Home Port Team. The team reviews all of the patient’s medical needs and ensures that anything required for the patient is addressed during the appointment, including booking referrals and giving missing immunizations. “Medical Home Port is an integrated approach to delivering health care to the patient,” said Ken Laube, Medical Home Port business manager with NHP. “It provides a wider scope of services in clinics for the patient.” Along with doctors, nurses and corpsmen, the team approach

involves other specialists within each clinic, such as a pharmacist who can dispense some medications, a case manager, diabetic specialist and a behavioral health specialist (motivational coach) to help with chronic habits such as insomnia, smoking or weight loss. To qualify as a Medical Home Port, the hospital has to be certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. NHP is a leader in the DoD with 10 recognized Medical Home Port Teams: Family Practice, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at NHP and Naval Branch Health Clinics Gulfport, Miss.; Meridian, Miss.; Millington, Tenn.; Belle Chasse, La.; NAS Whiting Field; Naval Air Station Pensacola; and Naval Air Technical Training Center, Pensacola. Among the requirements for certification are the ability for patients to contact their team 24 hours a day, seven days a week and the team’s availability to handle same-day appointments. Many people think it is easier

to be seen by going to the emergency room, but this is not always the case. “What we (internal medicine) are seeing is that 40-50 percent of common conditions that we can manage are showing up in the emergency room at times we are open,” said Cmdr. Carolyn Rice, department head, internal medicine, NHP. “Conditions such as earache, cold, flu and backache … these are common issues that you would normally see your doctor for.” If patients have an emergency, then the ER is the appropriate place to go. However, if patients want to be seen the same day, and it’s not an emergency, the Medical Home Port is the ideal location. Not only can patients eliminate the waiting in the ER, which can be hours, they will have the advantage of seeing their own medical team. “Getting to see your regular doctor has numerous advantages; they already have familiarity with your medical history, your condi-

tions and your personal concerns when approaching your health care,” said Rice. Having that continuity between patients and primary care managers is an important component of Medical Home Port. “What’s very unique about (Medical Home Port) are the efforts to maintain continuity between patients and their own doctors,” said Laube. “The more (patients) see their doctor verses another doctor… their (frequency of) visits go down, satisfaction goes up for both the patient and the doctor, and the quality of the visit is better because you are going to someone that knows your history.” During the month of January, NHP’s three primary care medical homes – internal medicine, pediatrics and family medicine – all scored within the top 25 of patient and primary care manager continuity across the entire DoD, with internal medicine coming in first with 90.1 percent. “What that means is that 90 percent of the time when you come for an appointment, you will be seeing your regular doc-

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.

on. Educational and public affairs events are examples of possible venues for the high-profile fliers. “To be part of this team in any way is quite a privilege and an honor,” he said. “No one wishes this upon the team, but it’s just another challenge and our goal is to continue the legacy ... to inspire young men and women to join the Navy and Marine Corps. It’s a leadership challenge and we’ll make sure we rise up to the occasion.” The Blues will sign autographs at the National Naval Aviation Museum each Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. “Our goal is to maximize our interaction with the local public through community outreach,” he added. “Not just the pilots, but the Sailors and maintainers.”

… We’ll solve it … together.” The goal for SAAPM is to empower commands to take ownership of this problem. “My theme is always teamwork; collective action is stronger than individual action,” added Hoskins. This proclamation gives us the opportunity to talk about things that have helped other commands; what programs do you have that other commands may not be aware of, so collectively we can come together and fight this issue at NAS Pensacola.” Kathleen Doherty, director of the Fleet and Family Support Center serving NAS Pensacola, notes that the events scheduled for SAAPM are designed to call attention to a problem that has dramatic negative consequences on unit and personal readiness. “Our NAS Pensacola educational events during SAAPM include Lights On Against Sexual Assault, Denim Day and the Amazing SAPR Race,” said Doherty. “They call attention to the fact it is not OK to tolerate sexual assault in the military. These events reinforce that it is our collective responsibility to look out for our shipmates; each and every Sailor must understand that when you see something, you do something – and don’t let sexual assaults happen.” Sexual assault prevention is an important element of the readiness area of the 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative, which builds resiliency to hone the most combat-effective force in the history of the Department of the Navy. More information on sexual assault prevention, posters and other tools are posted on the Naval Personnel Command’s Sexual Assault Prevention website:

events can only be supported with local assets at no cost to the government. “This is one of many steps the Navy is taking to ensure resources are in place to support forces operating forward now and those training to relieve them. “The Navy believes there is value in demonstrating the professionalism and capabilities of our Navy and Marine Corps naval aviation team, thus inspiring future generations of Sailors and Marines. The Navy intends to continue aerial demonstrations in the future as the budget situation permits.” Frosch was positive despite the nature of the news, and emphasized the Blues recruitment mission will go

tor,” said Rice. “Even when you are unable to see your doctor, you will still be seeing a member of your team.” Actual Medical Home Port visits are not the only way patients can receive health care or information pertaining to their health. Patients also have access to online tools through TRICARE online such as making appointments, accessing personal health data, requesting prescription refills or communicating with their provider and Medical Home Port Team through secure messaging. Patients can ask their team questions regarding their health while still maintaining patient confidentiality and possibly saving a trip to the hospital. With the overall goal of patient satisfaction, Medical Home Port aims to improve the patient’s health care experience while also increasing access to care. This approach makes health care easier and more convenient than ever for patients. To make an appointment with a Medical Home Port Team, contact your team directly or call the appointment line at 505-7171.

Jurisdiction a factor in family law cases By Lt. Emil Marcinskas Region Legal Service Office Southeast

Where to file for divorce or other matters related to family law is often very confusing. Before judging the merits of a case, a court must be satisfied that it has personal jurisdiction (power over the parties in the suit) and subject matter jurisdiction (power to handle the matter at issue). Personal jurisdiction is determined by the parties’ domicile, the state where a party resides and intends to remain indefinitely. Generally the law of the state in which the petitioner is domiciled at the time of filing governs, unless the petitioner consents to filing in or is compelled to file in another state. Many service members have ties to multiple states. In order to determine domicile, the following are important considerations: the location of real property, the state where one is registered to vote, the state where one’s vehicles are licensed and registered, and the state listed on a Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) for state income tax withholding purposes. Every state has its own specific requirements to establish personal jurisdiction. In order to file for divorce in Florida,

the petitioner must have lived in Florida for six months immediately prior to filing. Alabama, Mississippi and Texas require that at least one party be a resident of the state for six months prior to filing. Louisiana requires that the petitioner be a resident of the state for 12 months prior to filing. In the event that both spouses live in separate states, either party may file in their respective state, provided that they meet the jurisdictional requirements. Some states offer residency exceptions to service members who are stationed there, allowing them to file a petition for divorce in that state’s jurisdiction, even if they are not a legal resident. If a party is not satisfied with where the petition has been filed, they can initiate a proceeding to challenge a state’s jurisdiction. Identifying the proper jurisdiction for filing a legal petition is complicated, and will require examination of multiple factors. If you need assistance with a legal issue, you can contact the NAS Pensacola Region Legal Service Office at 161 Turner St., Bldg. 624, Suite B, second deck. The phone number is 452-3730.

Volunteers in spotlight during April By Kevin Weinzimmer Family Employment Readiness Specialist, NASP Fleet and Family Support Center

April is Volunteer Appreciation month, a time to recognize the ordinary people who accomplish extraordinary things through service. Since the elimination of the draft in 1973, all the services that make up the armed forces of the United States have been staffed by volunteers and it only makes sense that the spirit of helping others carries through after separation or retirement from active service. For the civilians and contractors who work side by side with our military members and their families, that same spirit of service is strongly represented in many of our community nonprofit organizations and spiritual centers through volunteer efforts. An interesting perspective can be found in the comparison of the labor force that built Noah’s Ark and the Titanic; the former was built by volunteers and the later by “professionals.” Designating a month to honor our many volunteers in the

Department of Defense family fits perfectly with our culture of selfless giving. The spirit of volunteerism serves society across a broad spectrum. It can be as simple as asking an elderly neighbor if they need anything at the store as you are headed out for your weekly grocery run. Maybe washing dogs at the shelter to raise money in support of pet adoptions is how you have chosen to help out. Do you remember the moment when volunteers were asked to coach a kids’ football, soccer or t-ball team and most folks looked at the ground with their hands in their pockets? Was that you, or did you step up? Our guess is that if you did volunteer, you walked away with a valuable experience and the appreciation of many children and adults. The possibilities are truly endless from long-term commitments with various organizations to brief models of intervention, perhaps better known as random acts of kindness. The important thing is that we embrace those commitments and moments, doing our best to ensure a kinder and more caring

society. The Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) is built on the foundation of serving our military and their family members. True, it is a job that comes with pay, but many of the staff selflessly give of their time outside of the regular work day. As a matter of fact, remarkable volunteer efforts by the staff are the exception rather than the rule. Here is just a sampling of the community organizations and services which Fleet and Family Support Center staff volunteer with after hours: Covenant Hospice, Veterans Support Organization, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America, Leadership Pensacola, Pathways for Change, Manna and St. Vincent de Paul Society food pantries, fraternity mentor, Young Business Leaders, church groups, Annual Women’s Conference, Special Olympics, Disaster Preparedness Team and Community Mentoring and Empowerment along with our local efforts in support of Moral Welfare and Recreation programs. So join us in making a difference and chose a path towards building a better community.

Students can take steps to deal with exam anxiety It is also about this time that the pressure to get high marks on exams kicks in. Students who get nervous before a test should be encouraged to try the following tips and strategies for keeping anxiety down and energy up for the next big exam. • Don’t cram: Studying like crazy the night before an exam can leave your child exhausted and more stressed out than before. Studying is more effective if done in small doses over several days. • Make up practice questions or take practice tests: Knowing the format and style of a test can reduce anxiety. Encourage students to always ask their teachers about how the test will be formatted. Studying is so much more effective when you know what types of questions you’ll be answering. • Get a good night’s sleep: Lack of sleep contributes heavily to anxiety. Be sure your child goes to bed on time the night before an exam.

• Eat a healthy breakfast: Blood sugar is at its lowest in the morning. In order to think and problem-solve effectively, students need to refuel. But a good breakfast for one child is not the same for another. Figure out what works best for you child. • Read through the exam to budget time: By looking over the test, your child can avoid any unexpected surprises (and anxiety). Previewing also insures finishing in the allotted time. • Read all directions: Some students are so anxious to get the test over with that they fail to read the directions. • Jot notes: Jotting down brief notes right away can help your child feel less anxious about forgetting important facts or key information. Some students write important formulas or critical dates in the margin as soon as they receive their test papers. • Answer easy questions first: Getting the easier questions out of the

way builds self-confidence and allows your child the time to focus more clearly on the harder questions. • Organize thoughts before writing: Students who organize their writing responses before they start writing typically score higher. Having a plan or even a short outline insures a well-structured response which hits all the main points. • Think positively: Negative thoughts during a test (e.g., “I’m going to fail”) can not only destroy your child's confidence, but also take up valuable time which should be used to concentrate on the test. Using these tips won’t necessarily keep anxiety away completely. However, practicing these techniques can give your child the right skills to manage test stress when it does happen. So hopefully a combination of tutoring through and these test tips will help your child achieve success and readily promote to the next grade.

Get ready: Summer is peak moving season From NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center

Approximately 65 percent of all DoD household goods moves are performed during the summer peak season period (May through August). The moving industry continues to advise DoD they do not have the capacity (equipment and personnel) to handle such surges over a short period of time. Meaning, every customer may not get their requested moving date. Proper planning, flexibility in move dates and communication with the household goods transportation service providers (TSP) can reduce the potential for shipment difficulties. Personnel preparing to execute a PCS move are encouraged to take the following actions: • Register to access the Defense Personal Property System (DPS) at Orders are not needed to register but will be required (along with a signed copy of the application DD form 1299 if obtainable) when you complete and submit the request for shipment. Also if you reside in government housing a copy of your “Intent To Vacate” will also be required. • Once registered (and before you move), go to the main page and click on the link under DoD service members and civilians and review all the information via the links on the left side of the screen. Instructional videos are available via YouTube ( • To schedule your move, submit your application early. Three weeks advance notice of the requested move date is required to give you the best chance of getting your requested dates during summer peak season. Once you have your orders, review the “It’s Your Move” pamphlet at part-iv/dtr_part_iv_app_k _1.pdf. • Complete the self counseling at and immediately provide a copy of official orders and a signed copy of the application DD form 1299 to your local personal property office. Applications for household goods moves will not be processed and moves cannot be scheduled without a valid copy of official orders. • Be flexible when arranging dates for packing, pick-up and delivery. Moving during the summer season (May 15 to Aug. 30) presents unique challenges, especially moves made

Navy family members relax on the lawn in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, while movers deliver household goods to their new home. Navy file photo

during the peak of the peak (June 15 through July 4). Often during this period moving companies are operating at capacity and sometimes a first choice of moving dates cannot be accommodated. It is recommended that you schedule your move before or after the “peak of the peak” whenever possible. Differences between the requested and actual pick-up

dates can impact plans to vacate housing, commence travel and execute other PCSrelated events. Final pack and pick-up dates are not confirmed until the conclusion of the pre-move survey, so make sure you obtain confirmation of pack and pick-up dates before making final travel arrangements. If circumstances require a change to the agreed upon

pack and pickup dates, there is a substantial risk that the new requested dates may not be available and this may cause a delay in rescheduling your move. • Stay in contact with the household goods moving company/TSP. DPS provides point of contact telephone numbers for each TSP supporting the move. • Immediately notify the local personal property office should any unforeseen issues arise. Consider performing a personally procured move (PPM), formerly known as a DITY move. Eligible service members may be paid up to 95 percent of the government’s cost for performing a similar move. If you are going to move yourself or direct hire a moving company, you must have orders in hand and complete a DD form 2278 in DPS and have it signed by your personal property office prior to taking any actions. Planning, preparation, flexibility and communication are the keys to executing a successful household goods move. Service members may submit questions about their household goods moves via email to householdgoods@

NavAdmin soliciting Sailors for RDC duty By Scott A. Thornbloom Naval Service Training Command Public Affairs

The Navy is recruiting Sailors to become the molders of future Sailors as Recruit Division Commanders (RDC) at Recruit Training Command (RTC), the Navy’s only boot camp, and Officer Training Command (OTC) as announced in NavAdmin 085/13 April 1. “Being an RDC is one of the most important jobs that there is in the Navy,” said Rear Adm. Dee L. Mewbourne, commander, Naval Service Training Command (NSTC). “RDCs are the first Navy leaders our recruits see when they report to RTC to begin their Navy careers. They need to be the ‘best of the best’ and top Sailors because they are charged with molding a disciplined enlisted Sailor to send out to the fleet.” Headquartered in Bldg. 1, the historic clock tower building on Naval Station Great Lakes, Ill., NSTC oversees 98 percent of initial officer and enlisted accessions training for the Navy. NSTC oversees the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) at more than 160 colleges and universities, OTC on Naval Station Newport, R. I., Recruit Training Command (RTC), the Navy’s only boot camp, at Great Lakes, Ill., and Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) and Navy National Defense Cadet Corps (NNDCC) citizenship development programs at more than 600 high schools worldwide. OTC has an average of 18 chief and senior chief RDCs. They provide mentorship and physical training in four of the five schoolhouses at the command; Officer Candidate School (OCS), Officer Development School (ODS), Direct Commission Officer Indoctrination Course (DCOIC) and the Naval Science Institute (NSI). “We are looking for chiefs and senior chiefs who are physically fit, motivated and want to make a difference in shaping the future of the Navy,” said ETCS (SW/AW) Matt Anuci, the senior enlisted leader of OTC. Anuci said it is not well-known around the fleet that RDCs, who most people associate with RTC, are also assigned to OTC. “We’re such a small command (OTC in Newport), compared to RTC. When nearly 40,000 recruits go through RTC each year the natural assumption is that’s the only place where RDCs are stationed,” Anuci said. “The Navy also sends E-5 and E-6 RDCs to Great Lakes. Newport is completely different because our billets are limited to only a select few senior enlisted.” Anuci explained that OCS needs senior enlisted RDCs because of “the opportunity to mentor and mold and

develop the division-officer-to-chief relationship that is a constant in the fleet.” NavAdmin 085/13 also applies to any senior enlisted Sailors who might want to become RDCs. After attending RDC “C” School at RTC, they would then accept orders to OTC in Newport. NavAdmin 085/13 also states that “RDCs are rewarded for their dedication and hard work with the following benefits: $450 per month special duty assignment pay; additional annual clothing allowance of $220; free dry cleaning while actively training a recruit division; opportunity to earn a master training specialist qualification;

guaranteed choice of coast assignment (upon completion of tour); advancement rates to chief and senior chief are close to double the Navywide averages; award of recruit training service ribbon; participation in the RTC Command Meritorious Advancement Program for second class petty officer.” RTC’s Command Master Chief Christopher R. Angstead, in a recent NSTC Youtube video (, invited potential RDCs to become a member of the RTC team. “We have a unique responsibility here at Recruit Training Command to train volunteers into basicallytrained, physically fit Sailors through screening, equipping, education and military bearing. To meet these training demands we need to increase our Recruit Division Commander manning levels,” said Angstead. “If you are a highly motivated second class, first class, chief or senior chief and want to be a vital part of forging our Navy of the future, consider joining our Recruit Training Command team.”

The NavAdmin also says the “RDC assignment is challenging, but rewarding. It offers a number of significant professional development, diversification, leadership, and career advancement opportunities. Hard-charging, disciplined Sailors who process strong character, personal integrity and want to pursue the most challenging duty ashore are encouraged to volunteer for duty as an RDC.” “There’s a sense of accomplishment being an RDC,” said CTIC Laura Stout, from Cedarsburg, Fla., who has been an RDC for two years and has “pushed” five divisions. “You get to see these young people go from not knowing anything about the Navy when they first arrive to marching across the drill deck at graduation with so much pride and so ready to go out to be part of the Navy. It’s a great feeling.” The NavAdmin continues to say “initial orders are to RDC “C” School via a three-week intermediate stop at a Navy Instructor Training Course to obtain the 9502 (Military Training Specialist) Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC). The course is conducted at multiple Navy sites and is a prerequisite for RDC duty. Candidates must pass RDC “C” School which is a 13-week physically challenging, intensive, hands-on training course that provides prospective RDCs with the skills, perspective, and physical readiness to succeed as an RDC. All candidates will be required to pass the RDC Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) which mandates completion of the run portion of the Physical Readiness Test (PRT) during RDC ‘C’ School. The most common reason for attrition during training is RDC PFA failure.” Interested Sailors should submit a 1306/7 (Enlisted Personnel Action Request), requesting duty as an RDC to their rating detailer. NavAdmin 085/13 stresses that in order to reach the 100 percent requirement of 601 RDCs (as of April 2 there were 453 RDC assigned to RTC), openings for approximately 200 RDCs are anticipated each year. Reference A of the NavAdmin contains screening requirements and instructions for application submissions. Some of the requirements listed in the MilPersMan (Military Personnel Manual) can be waived.

Bowdich turns over command of HT-8 From NASWF PAO

Cmdr. Paul Bowdich relinquished command of Helicopter Training Squadron Eight (HT-8) to Cmdr. Matthew Bowen during a change of command ceremony April 4. After more than 16 months in the top spot, Bowdich releases the Cmdr. Matthew reins of the squadron to Bowen his executive officer, who helped the squadron earn numerous accolades during their tenure. Under Bowdich’s command, HT-8 exceeded the Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) production requirements for helicopter pilots by 5 percent, winging almost 200 military aviators. This encompassed more than 20,000 flight hours during 11,000 sorties for Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and allied nation student pilots. Throughout the demanding pace of training, Bowdich required the highest quality of mentorship from his officers, resulting in a grade of “outstanding” during the annual CNATRA Flight Instructor Standardization inspection. Bowdich leaves the “Eightballers” to take up the post of navigator aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71). Bowen takes command of HT-8 after nearly 18 years of naval service. Like Bowdich, he is a graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and served tours aboard the USS Whidbey Island (LSD 41) and the USS Bataan (LHD 5) before transitioning to naval aviation. Following his winging (also as a helicopter pilot with HT-18), he reported to HC-6 in Norfolk, Va. Bowen followed that tour with service as part of HSC-26, HC-3, HS-10, HS-8 and HSC-23. He also worked as the flag lieutenant to the commander, Operational Test and Evaluation Force; director of personnel for the Commander, Combined Joint Special Operations Air Component in Balad, Iraq; deputy executive assistant to the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations; and special assistant and speechwriter to the Vice Chief of Naval Operations, before earning a master’s degree at the Naval War College. Cmdr. Robert Sinram will replace Bowen as the executive officer for the squadron. Cmdr. Paul Bowdich

NAS Whiting Field CMDCM Rafael Rosado and his wife, Gladys, walk through the sideboys to begin his civilian career after 30 years of service to the Navy.

Fair winds and following seas: CMDCM Rafael Rosado retires From NASWF PAO

Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s command master chief ended his 30year naval career March 8, during a ceremony to commemorate his exceptional contributions to the Navy mission and the Sailors he supported at the base. The 10 a.m. retirement ceremony highlighted CMDCM Rafael Rosado’s military accomplishments, praised the support of his family members and gave the NAS Whiting Field team a chance to bid the traditional “fair winds and following seas” to a man who dedicated three decades of service to the nation. “This is obviously a big day for master chief and his family, but it’s also a big day for us here at Whiting. A kind of bittersweet day because we get to recognize master chief’s accomplishments over a 30-year naval career, but unfortunately, we also say farewell to a great warrior and a great friend that we are all going to miss,” NASWF Commanding Officer Matthew Coughlin stated during his opening remarks as the ceremony’s guest speaker. A full-house of family, friends, shipmates and co-workers filled the base atrium to watch the ceremony filled with the traditional military trappings of sideboys, parading of the colors, and the passing of “Old Glory.” The event provided a vibrant

reminder of the pride and dedication necessary to sacrifice more than half a life in the service of the country. For Rosado, it was a life committed to helping younger Sailors succeed. Coughlin put a portion of Rosado’s career in perspective when he mentioned that 16 years, nine months and 29 days of his 30 years in the military were spent aboard seagoing vessels such as: USS Nathaniel Green (SSBN 636), USS Alexander Hamilton (SSBN 617), USS Ohio (SSBN 726), USS Tennessee (SSBN 734) and USS “The Sullivans” (DDG 68). Lengthy deployments and constant readiness requirements are also difficult on the family members left behind, a fact which Coughlin alluded to while addressing Rosado’s impact on the Navy. “It goes to show you the magnitude of the price that his family has also had to pay along the way. I want to recognize master chief’s family, in particular his lovely wife, Gladys, and his children, Aaron and Ashley, that made the trip to be here today. Thank you for your service and the many sacrifices that you have endured over the years,” he said before reminding master chief of the impact a chief has on his Sailors. “… There is also a cadre of Sailors, not only in the fleet, but out in our great society today that have benefitted from your leadership. You carried them when they needed it, and you put a boot where it doesn’t belong

when it was warranted. Along the way, they respected and admired you and they remember you to this day.” Following his remarks, Coughlin presented Rosado with the Defense Meritorious Service Medal to recognize his impact and contributions to NAS Whiting Field. Other presentations followed as he received letters from past presidents, from the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy, a framed photograph from the chief petty officer mess and a shadowbox encasing mementos from his career. Although anxious to spend more time with his family, Rosado was also reluctant to leave the deckplate Sailors he cared for as a second family. “If I have touched one Sailor’s life or family with my love of life and humor, it has been a privilege,” he said. “I cannot stop thanking you enough for the honor and privilege of serving with you.” CMC Alton Smith, a native of Dothan, Ala., assumed the duties as the new Whiting Field CMC with Rosado’s formal request to be relieved. Smith most recently served aboard the USS Carney (DDG 64). As Rosado received permission to go “ashore” for the final time, he requested one last action of the NAS Whiting Field enlisted crew. Much as the crew does at the commissioning of a new ship, he asked the Sailors to “man the rails” of the atrium to see him off on a new career.

Child Abuse

April is

Prevention Month

Break the cycle. From

Why is Child Abuse Prevention Month so important? Each year children die due to child abuse and neglect. The highest percentage of child victims for abuse and neglect are younger than age three. To bring awareness to this problem, in 1983, Congress proclaimed every April Child Abuse Prevention Month. What efforts has the Navy made to help prevent child abuse and neglect? Each year, the Navy proclaims April as Child Abuse Prevention Month to coincide with Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) Child Abuse Prevention Month (CAPM) campaign. Throughout the month of April, CAPM campaign products that reflect the current year’s theme are distributed Navywide. At the installation level workshops, awareness breakfasts and educational programs are offered to the stakeholders, i.e., active duty service members, command leadership, etc. This year, our theme is “Break the Cycle.” What is the meaning of the theme “Break the Cycle”?

Research shows that child abuse and neglect is learned behavior. This means that the most effective intervention to break the cycle is teaching healthy parenting practices. What should parents and caretakers do to prevent child abuse and neglect? Every family should integrate six protective factors into their parenting practice to minimize the risk for child abuse and neglect: • Parental resilience. • Social connections. • Knowledge of parenting and child development. • Concrete support in times of need. • Nurturing and attachment social and emotional competence of children. Where should active duty parents go to learn about healthy parenting practices? On each Navy installation where family housing is available, there is a Fleet and Family Support Center, which is where parenting and child development subject matter experts known as home visitors are located. Home visitors are the service providers for The New Parent Support Home Visitation Program.

Tell me more about the New Parent Support Home Visitation Program. The NPSP is a congressionally mandated program. This program offers free support services to families with children younger than age three. The program mission is to educate parents on healthy parenting practices that would ultimately minimize the risk for child abuse and neglect. The home vis-

itors are highly skilled and trained nurses, social workers, marriage and family therapists and/or early child educators.

Preventing child maltreatment and promoting well-being: tips for military families From

All military families face unique stresses that can make the difficult job of parenting even harder: • The military parent must deal with periodic absences and the stresses associated with preparing for duty or reentering civilian life. • Children must adjust to a parent being away from the family (and, in some cases, in harm’s way) and then to the parent’s reintegration into the family. Many military children also deal with frequent moves, changing schools and new caretakers. • A spouse, partner, or extended fam-

ily member may face new and increased responsibilities while a military parent is away. What you can do • Express appreciation for the family’s service to our country. Invite parents and children to share their positive experiences of military life. • Get to know your military neighbors, particularly if they serve in the National Guard or reserves. Include them in neighborhood and community activities. Don’t wait for your neighbor to ask for help – offer to mow the grass, share a meal, help with small household repairs, or care for the children for a few hours.

Gosling Games Color me ‘Bright idea’

• Share information about community resources that provide support in times of need. Ask military parents what would help them most when they are facing a military-related separation, and help them to connect with these supports early. • Help military parents and the other caregivers in their family understand how transitions, separation and anxiety can affect their child’s behavior. Knowing that acting out or withdrawing are normal can make these challenges easier to deal with. • Invite military children in your neighborhood to share their thoughts and feelings about the separations and transitions they may be experiencing. If you plan activities for children in your community, remember to include a way for children with a faraway parent to participate.

NAS Pensacola command’s Civilians of the Year From staff reports


AS Pensacola command’s Senior Civilian of the Year (SCoQ) for 2012 is NASP Security’s Carlton Matthews; Junior Civilian of the Year is MWR’s Shiela Brand. Their nominations read as follows: Carlton Matthews: “Carlton Matthews demonstrates an admirable work ethic surpassed by none; a friendly disposition; a genuine concern for his peers and customers alike; and on daily basis, presents an unequaled knowledge in how to ‘get the job done.’ These characteristics demonstrated by Matthews has proven him to be an irreplaceable department asset who is sought routinely by his subordinates, peers and superiors for critical advice and consultation. “Matthews’ performance on a daily basis reveals that he is a team player and supports the mission of the (NASP) Security Department, Naval Air Station, Pensacola, CNRSE and the Navy. Matthews works countless hours by supervising four shift watch commanders, nine sargeant supervisors and 89 police officers and guards. “Matthews coordinated the security protocols during several high-profile visits, to include the

former Secretary of Defense, governors of Florida and Colorado, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Secretary of the Army. He has worked planning boards in conjunction with MWR for base special events Winter Wonderland and Fun Fest; and worked jointly with EEO to facilitate administrative actions as needed. Matthews participated in the planning process for an upcoming Egyptian ship visit and exercise Citadel Shield regional/basewide. On missioncritical issues, Matthews pursues the solutions relentlessly, often crossing over to areas outside his responsibility to ensure the proper coordination and mission response is accomplished. “Matthews energetic nature is not limited to his duties, but outside activities have made him a real asset to the community. He participated in a dynamic program geared for young Christian boys and girls called Youth On The Winning Side, a weeklong program dealing with issues that face youth today. Matthews is

cation and education that these recruiters receive. • Presented schematic proposal to rearrange the dangerously congested free weight room at Portside Fitness, providing increased doubling access to this highly used area, greatly improving the facility and patron experience. • Based on knowledge, experience and reputation, Brand was selected by CNIC to represent NASP and CNRSE at the CFL retraining meeting held in Washington, D.C. She wasted no time upon return in coordinating and executing the retraining program hosted at NASP for MWR CFL instructors in our geographic area. She has conducted six CFL courses to date in 2012 with one more scheduled, more than any other base in the region. • Conducts NATTC “indocs” representing MWR fitness for newly reporting personnel and students aboard NAS Pensacola, with an audience of more than 100 per session. • Routinely acts as Portside facility manager, while the coordinator is on leave or fulfilling other duties. “Brand is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and dedicated fitness trainer and represents NASP fitness and MWR at numerous high profile training events and meetings. Her customer service skills, employee mentoring and extraordinary passion for her job and the installation are precisely the qualities that NASP looks for.”
