NAS Pensacola winner of CNO Environmental Award

NASP Public Affairs Office

Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) is a recent recipient of the 2017 Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Environmental Award for Natural Resources Conservation. The CNO Environmental Awards program recognizes Navy ships, installations, individuals and teams for their outstanding accomplishments and contributions to improving the environmental performance of the United States Navy. “Our Navy Sailors and civilians work in diverse ecosystems worldwide while performing our national security mission,” Vice Adm. D.R. Smith said in a congratulatory message. “I commend the winners of the CNO environmental awards program for maintaining mission excellence while protecting the natural environment in which we operate. Congratulations and Bravo Zulu.” Winners will receive plaques, which will be mailed to win-

ning commands for local presentation to award recipients. A total of 61 nominations from commands around the world were received in nine award categories for the 2017 competition. A panel of subject matter experts from the Navy and environmental nongover n ment organizations judged the submissions. Their judging scores determined winners at the CNO level of competition, which will then advance to the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) Environmental Awards competition. Eligible winners at the SECNAV level will then compete at the final tier of the competition, the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) Environmental Awards. “As the Navy strives to adapt to modern threats and keep our technological edge, we should remember that our decisions about protecting the environment can either enhance or undermine what we’re trying to

Florida have on the state and the local communities surrounding those bases. “The economic impact of an installation is made up of payroll,” Bolivar said. “Not only activeduty military payroll, but also retirees, civilians and contractors, along with the procurement of goods and services.” Bolivar also gave insight regarding the specific the mission sets of each of the naval installations span-

ning from the Florida panhandle to the Florida Keys, and how overseeing these installations encompasses a lot of moving parts. “It’s important to understand that running a base is like running a small city,” Bolivar said. “We have our own public works centers, police and fire departments, medical and dental facilities, child care centers, swimming See CNRSE on page 2

NAS Pensacola CMDCM retires after 30 years of service By Ens. Mikeorlando Delarosa NASP Public Affairs Office

Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Command Master Chief (CMDCM) Adriana M. Lewis retired from the Navy after 30 years of honorable service during a ceremony held at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NAS Pensacola April 6. Lewis’s accomplishments during her 30-year tenure include being the first female and the first African American CMDCM of NAS Pensacola. Lewis’s retirement ceremony hosted active-duty service members, civilians, friends and family members alike who all joined to wish her farewell. NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Martin served as the presiding officer. He spoke highly of Lewis’s character and years of service. “Master Chief, to say you will be missed is an understatement,” Martin said. “As part of my command triad you’ve

been instrumental to the success of this base. I think I speak for everyone when I say NAS Pensacola won’t be the same without you.” A native of Pensacola, Lewis enlisted in the Navy in May of 1988. After completion of basic training, she attended Radioman “A” school in San Diego, Calif. Lewis’s first assignment was at Naval Telecommunica-

tion Center (NTCC) Hampton Roads, Norfolk, Va. She considered her most gratifying tour to be the time she spent training recruits at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. “I got to be one of the second wave of females going there to train recruits,” Lewis said. “Training recruits was challenging but very rewarding. I enjoyed training the Sailors.

Carl Lahti, director of OPNAV N45 said. “We can preserve trust with the public and our partner organizations, or we can damage that trust, and the planet we share, through careless and irresponsible choices. This awards program showcases commands and individuals who excel in doing the right thing for the environment today and making the Navy resilient enough to meet the mission for the future.” For more information about the CNO Environmental Awards program and a list of previous winners, visit http:// greenfleet.dodlive.mil/environment/ awards.

pools and golf courses, aircraft centers, runways and supply warehouses.” Bolivar stressed how investment into these military installations in the form of defense spending has had a positive impact on the Florida economy as a whole. “Defense spending was directly or indirectly responsible for $84.9 billion, or 9.2 percent, of Florida’s 2016 gross state product,” Bolivar said. “That spending is made up of procurement, salaries and pensions or transfer payments, which is all those retired veterans who come to settle in the state. Defense spending creates jobs in every Florida county,

NJROTC from page 1 participated in the competition.” An awards ceremony was held at the National Naval Aviation Museum after the competition was finished with participation certificates going to all 25 schools as well as trophies for each category including overall trophies to the top five units. “I am so overwhelmed with joy and proud of our team,” Cadet Cmdr. Gerard Tenorio, a senior at Green Run High School, said. “My team worked very hard and dedicated a lot of time towards returning as champion.” This year the unit piled up 5,545 points to capture the title. Paloma Valley, Calif, High School came in second with 5,447 points. Centennial High School, Las Vegas, Nev. finished third with 5,312 points. Gaither High School, Tampa, Fla. was fourth with 5,267 points and Troy High School, Fullerton, Calif. rounded out the top five with 5,239 points.

and most of those jobs are high wage positions.” With the military having such a strong presence in the state, economics are not the only positive impact that these installations have had in Florida. “Our Sailors, civilians and family members are active volunteers in the community,” Bolivar said. “They are coaching Little League, mentoring, reading to students, working with Special Olympics and more. The Navy holds an annual community service awards program and the Southeast Region consistently ranks high Navywide in the number of hours spent making our communities a better place to live and work.”

“It is unbelievable,” retired Navy Cmdr. Curtis Brown, senior naval science instructor at Green Run High School said, on winning the championship for the second year in a row. “The kids worked extremely hard and overcame much adversity. We didn’t have the most talent this year, leaving some cadets at home, but had the best team with us and that’s what it takes.” The personnel inspections, color guard and the drill events at the competition were judged by Navy Recruit Division Commanders (RDCs) and Marine Corps drill instructors (DIs) from Officer Training Command (OTCN), Naval Station Newport, R.I. In addition, Marines from Marine Aviation Training Support Group-21 assisted in judging the armed rifle exhibition, while Sailors from the Navy Recruiting Orientation Unit at NAS Pensacola judged the curl-up and push-up portions of the competition. Approximately 26 of 583 NJROTC units worldwide qualify for the national competition annually. Local NJROTC units participating in this year’s

I learned a whole lot on that tour.” In 2006, Lewis was selected into the Command Master Chief Program. Upon graduation, Lewis reported to Strike Fighter Squadron 41 (VFA-41) in Lemoore, Calif. Before assuming the duties of CMDCM onboard NAS Pensacola, she completed a tour at Air Test and Evaluation Squadron 1 (VX-1), Patuxent River, Md. The opportunity to end her naval career in her hometown was a relief. “I was happy to get orders back home,” Lewis said. “They gave me my last tour and they gave me home. I know my family was happy, especially my mother. I’ve been a lot of places and this is where I’m most comfortable.” Among her numerous unit and campaign ribbons, Lewis was also awarded the Meritorious Service Medal, Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal (5) and the Army Commendation Medal.

Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 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.

During her remarks, Lewis talked about how much the service members have meant to her during her career. “My goal wasn’t to become a master chief,” Lewis said. “My goal was to be a voice. When I was a junior enlisted, I felt like my voice wasn’t heard. So I strived to move up to be heard and let those young Sailors be heard and be their voice.” The ceremony concluded with the presentation of the retirement flag followed by the reading of the Chief Petty Officer Retirement Creed by retired ADCS Michael Lapadula. “It’s kind of hard letting 30 years go because this is all I’ve done,” Lewis said. “I’m looking forward to the change. I don’t know what to expect but I’m looking forward to it.” CMDCM Mario Rivers, also a native from Pensacola, has now assumed the senior enlisted position from Lewis. Rivers reported to NAS Pensacola from Norfolk, Va., where he served aboard the USS San Jacinto (CG 56).

Marshmallows and military adventure By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

Y

ou know those people who open bags of M&Ms and dump the entire contents into their upturned mouths? They are the same ones who eat icing roses off of birthday cakes, open big presents before little ones and ask for the good news first. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people. Throughout life, I have strictly adhered to a “save the best for last” regimen. As a kid, I would squirrel away things – trinkets, treats, rewards – and ration them to myself, slowly and methodically until the best was left to savor. Take those M&Ms for example. I sorted through them one by one, eating the misshapen ones first, until I had a perfect candy of each color. Those five, “the Chosen,” would be ceremoniously sacrificed in one final, triumphant chomp. They did not taste any different than the rest, so why the irrational ritual? In junior high school, everyone collected stickers, but while my friends were slapping theirs on books and lockers, I

stashed mine away for something special. Those stored stickers eventually lost their stick. I think my mother still has a sheet of crusty Smurf stickers in the desk drawer of my old room. Every Easter, Valentine’s Day and Halloween, I would ration my candy, saving the best treats so long, that they often got too stale to eat. Decades later, I am still nibbling around center of cinnamon rolls and reading the most interesting magazine article last. Why? What has it ever gotten me but a rock-hard coconut egg and a shriveled Papa Smurf sticker? Has all my controlled frugality been for naught? I consulted an expert (Google) and found that “best for last” tendencies have been

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers, including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeatandpotatoesoflife.com. researched extensively. Scientists have studied delayed gratification, intuitive judgment, and peak-end bias to find out why some eat muffin tops first and others do not. In a 2011 University of Michigan experiment, students were given a series of chocolates to eat. With each candy, the experimenter said, “Here is your next

chocolate.” But when the experimenter said, “This is your last chocolate,” the subjects tended to rate that last candy as their favorite regardless of the flavor. Finally, my M&M sorting ritual makes sense. This experiment dovetails with “peak-end bias” research by Nobel Prize-winner Daniel Kahneman, which shows that people irrationally judge experiences by what happened last. For example, if a mediocre vacation ended with a fantastic night in a five-star hotel, vacationers tend to remember the trip positively. Despite this illogical partiality for “end” experiences, there are rational bases for saving the best for last. In the 1960s “Stanford Marshmallow Experiments,” 600 pre-schoolers were offered one marshmallow now, or two 15 minutes later. The vast majority of subjects waited for the additional reward, proving that children understand delayed gratification. A follow-up study showed that the ability to delay gratification was linked to higher SAT scores and lower body mass indexes. Somehow, that correlation skipped over me … Finally, a 2013 Cornell study showed that the tendency to

save the best for last fades with age. Apparently, younger adults have long-term visions that require saving for later, while older folks think, “Life is too short, eat dessert first.” How does this apply to military families? Certainly we must be frugal, always saving and planning for our everchanging futures. Living a life centered around serving one’s country requires careful organization and responsibility. However, military life also offers the luxury to splurge on experiences. Despite all those years I spent digging through plastic strands of grass to ferret out jelly beans while my peanut butter eggs dried up, our family did not delay gratification when it came to our military experiences. We “ate the marshmallow,” taking unique opportunities as soon as they arose. And my husband’s 28-year military career ended with a bang – after a fun final tour in Newport, R.I., we threw a huge retirement party that was WAY over our budget. Do not delay the adventure. Live overseas, rent a unique house, travel, try indigenous foods, go to military balls, eat the whole bag of M&Ms – grab the bull by the horns and make the most of your military journey.

Alcohol Awareness Month: drink smarter and share how you ‘Keep What You’ve Earned’ By Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – April is Alcohol Awareness Month, a national observance promoting ways to maintain healthy drinking habits. Navy Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention’s (NADAP) Keep What You’ve Earned Campaign has resources to help Sailors take proactive steps to drink responsibly. “April is a great time for Sailors and their families to check in with their drinking,” Dorice Favorite, NADAP director said. “Drinking responsibly doesn’t have to mean avoiding alcohol altogether. It’s taking conscious steps to stay safe, like planning ahead, knowing your limit and finding a safe ride home.” Pier Pressure is the Keep What You’ve Earned Campaign’s mobile application that enables Sailors to take these steps, combining real-life tools with gamification to encourage a responsible drinking environment, while celebrating Sailors’ achievements in their Navy careers. “Pier Pressure has been popular among Sailors and we constantly seek their feedback to improve the app’s function and user experience,” Favorite said. “We recently added access to Uber, Lyft and local cab searches in the app’s Safe Ride Home resource, and a calorie counter that not only estimates what’s in your cocktail or beer, but how many push-ups it may take to burn off those calories.” The app’s latest release includes other Sailor-requested enhancements, like renaming the “Tools” option on the home screen to “Resources” so that key features can be easily located. In addition to the Safe Ride Home access, the Calorie Counter and Alcohol Esti-

mator, the Resources section includes a quick and anonymous self-check to help gauge drinking habits and engage the right resources if a person has concerns about their drinking. The app can also push periodic smart drinking tips to users on the go to help them keep what they have earned. Pier Pressure is not the only tool that the Keep What You’ve Earned campaign offers to promote a culture of responsible drinking. Other new or updated products include the Costs of a DUI poster, illustrating potential short-term and long-term impacts of driving under the influence. This poster and the campaign’s full suite of materials can be found on the campaign’s website or ordered from the Naval Logistics Library. Keep What You’ve Earned has resonated with Sailors and contributed to a consistent decline in alcohol-related incidents because it is designed from their point-of-view. Starting this month, Sailors have the opportunity to share their responsible drinking story, what motivates them to keep what they have earned or highlight the ways that their command is encouraging healthy behaviors for a chance to be featured in future campaign products. “Sailors want to hear from each other, and those testimonials are powerful persuaders

when it comes to promoting ways to drink responsibly,” Favorite said. For a chance to have their story shared, Sailors can submit a short description including name, rate/rank, command and location to MILL_NADAP@Navy.mil, subject: A Day in the Life. NADAP will review all submissions and contact those that may be considered for future campaign products.

This April, NADAP wants Sailors of all rates and ranks to practice and share ways to drink responsibly. All members of the Navy community can stay engaged by holding local Keep What You’ve Earned events, sharing the campaign’s social media content, showing their realistic Public Service Announcements during training events or even serving as a designated driver. “Any one of these things can

make a difference and help a Sailor keep what they’ve earned,” Favorite said. For additional messaging, videos and graphics to share, follow NADAP on Facebook, YouTube and Flickr.

Navy chief charts course to develop ‘world-class’ leaders From Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs

NEWPORT, R.I. (NNS) – Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John Richardson announced the formation of the College of Leadership and Ethics at the U.S. Naval War College and released an updated version of the Navy Leader Development Framework (NLDF 2.0) April 6. “World-class leadership is our Navy’s decisive advantage over our adversaries,” Richardson said. “Our operational and warfighting success depends on developing leaders who learn and adapt to achieve maximum possible performance.

Scholarships available for officers interested in law careers By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) Public Affairs

Active duty and full-time support officers interested in a challenging career change can apply for scholarships via the FY-19 Law Education Program (LEP), announced April 4 in Naval Administrative Message (NAVADMIN) 082/18. The program affords selected Navy officers the opportunity to earn Bachelor of Laws or Juris Doctor degrees and to serve the Navy as career members of the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps. Capt. Gary Sharp, currently the Assistant Judge Advocate General for Operations and Management and Chief of Staff for the Region Legal Service Offices, came to the JAG Corps via LEP. “We rely on the Law Education Program to bring unique and valued perspectives to our community as most judge advocates come into the Navy through our Student Program,” Sharp said. “The LEP allows us to bring perspectives and experiences from multiple line communities (e.g., SWO, aviation, submarine, intel) and integrate those perspectives and experiences into our wardrooms. LEPs often become peer leaders during their initial judge advocate

assignments and support the professional development of our junior officers, just as our student program lawyers often support the professional development of our law education program officers; as ultimately all of our judge advocates must develop into exemplary lawyers and naval officers.” The Navy typically selects seven officers to attend law school each year. Candidates must be serving on activeduty as a commissioned officer in pay grades O-1 to O-3 and have no more than six years of active-duty service, including enlisted time, as of their law school class convening date, no later than Sept. 2019. LEP students have up to 36 months to complete their degree program. “The Law Education Program (LEP) is the perfect pathway for officers desiring a career change, interested in the law, and still desiring to serve the Navy in a different capacity,” Lt. Cmdr. Holly Higgins Didawick, the JAG Corps accessions detailer at the Navy Personnel Command in Millington, Tenn., said. “While the program

remains competitive, the incredible opportunity to get a fully-funded legal education while receiving full pay and benefits as a student is definitely worth the time to apply.” Upon graduation and admission to the practice of law, which in most jurisdictions includes passing the bar exam, Navy officers will be designated as judge advocates. Upon completion of the Basic Lawyer Course at the Naval Justice School, they are certified as qualified and competent to perform duties as trial and defense counsel of general courtsmartial. They are then normally detailed to one of several large Naval Legal Service or Region Legal Service Offices where they will be exposed to the many legal areas found in today’s Navy, including: criminal, international, administrative and tort law, legal assistance, maritime law and environmental law. Lt. Cmdr. Eric Carlson is the Command Services Department head for the Region Legal Service Office Mid Atlantic in Norfolk, Va. Previously a cryptology

warfare officer and U.S. Naval Academy graduate, he attended the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School while in LEP. “One of my favorite classes at the Naval Academy was NL400 (Naval Law for the Junior Officer) and I really enjoyed serving as a collateral-duty legal officer, but I was not ready to get out of the Navy to go to law school,” Carlson said. “LEP offered me the best of both worlds – an exciting legal career in the JAGC. The JAGC offers so many opportunities for judge advocates to serve and make a difference in all areas of the fleet.

Base highlights Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month Story, photo by Jamie Link NASWF Public Affairs Office

N

aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) and Training Air Wing Five (TraWing-5) combined efforts to kickoff the DoD-wide Sexual Assault and Awareness Prevention Month (SAAPM) initiative last week. NASWF Commanding Officer, Capt. Paul Bowdich and Capt. Douglas Rosa, deputy commodore TraWing-5, tied teal ribbons after reading portions of the SAAPM proclamation April 2. Personnel from the command, aviators, SAPR staff and Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) personnel were in attendance at the entrance to the command building onboard NASWF. The proclamation signing and ribbon tying happened at the same time as a number of other bases in the region who held similar events, all part of the Commander Navy Southeast Region-wide initiative across the area to highlight SAAPM. “The significance of these ribbon tying events is how they serve as powerful statements of command unification across our region to show our support for sexual assault survivors, and to reaffirm our ongoing commitment to the prevention of sexual assault and other destructive behaviors that contribute to its occurrence and prevalence,”

Tina Vaughn, CNRSE regional sexual assault response coordinator said. The NASWF Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) team consists of many personnel who help coordinate, volunteer and work to make the SAAPM program a success. The team includes, a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), Victims’ Advocates designated at each command, squadron and tenant command, and SAPR points-of-contact who provide support and assistance. Lt. Wayne Cheney who is a volunteer SAPR point of contact was there to show support and help represent TraWing-5. “My role is primarily in the administration of the program, so I make sure the victim’s advocates have the support they need should a case arise,” Cheney said. “That way they can focus on the victim.” In addition to the ribbon tying event, the aviators wore the NAS Whiting Field SAPR command patches, a first-ever in the Navy.

gram personnel designed and produced the patches and were approved to wear just last year. The aviators will wear the patches throughout the month on their flight suit. The newest event added to the NAS Whiting Field SAPR agenda this month will help to focus on the topic of men’s sexual assault cases in the military and target discussions in a men’s forum on the base. “In 2018, the NAS Whiting Field SAPR team is highlighting the services we provide for male victims,” Dora Ford, NAS Whiting Field command Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) said. “There is a need in the military to change the culture to encourage male victims to come forward and report sexual assault. It takes an astounding amount of courage

and bravery to admit that someone has taken advantage of you, and I want every single victim to know that they will be treated with dignity and respect by the SAPR team and get the support needed to start healing. We are always here for you, should you need us.” The NASWF SAPR team will continue to plan and facilitate SAPR events throughout the month of April to create even greater awareness of the program. The events will include, a basewide meme contest, a “wing-off,” women’s panel, SAAPM collaborative events and display tables located around the installation. The mission of the Navy SAPR program is “to prevent and respond to sexual assault, eliminating it from its ranks through a balance of focused

education, comprehensive response, compassionate advocacy and just adjudication in order to promote professionalism, respect and trust, while preserving Navy mission readiness. “Protecting Our People Protects Our Mission” continues as the theme for the Department of Defense Sexual Assault and Awareness Prevention Month (SAAPM) for 2018, according to the DoD SAPR website. Personnel who need help can call the DoD Safe Helpline (877) 995-5247, Uniformed Victims’ Advocate (850) 554-5383, or contact the SAPR office (850) 686-6298 at any time day or night. The phone contacts are manned by trained staff who can provide immediate victim assistance and advocacy. Visit www.safehelpline.org for further resources.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

From www.militaryonesource.mil

hild safety and well-being is everyone’s responsibility, but many times passers-by, friends, community members and even parents are reluctant to speak up. Talking to people about parenting or reporting potential child abuse or neglect can feel uncomfortable. Many people think it’s none of their business or that if something is truly wrong someone else will step in. It takes courage to speak up, but it only takes a minute to make a difference. Child safety is your business. It only takes a minute to reach out to a parent under stress. If you see a parent under stress, offer your help or guidance. Sometimes a frustrated parent just needs a short break or sympathetic ear to regain com-

posure or perspective. Here are some ways you can help a parent under stress: • Volunteer your time. Offer to watch the child for some time while the parent steps away to cool off • Listen. Invite the parent share what is bothering them. Actively listen, remind them that everyone gets frustrated from time to time and reinforce that asking for help is a sign of strength • Point them to the right resources. If the child is younger than the age of 3, the New Parent Support Program can offer support. Your installation Family Advocacy Program or family support center can advise on local and online resources for parent education, familyfriendly activities and services for families with special needs. Parents with children of all ages can call Military OneSource at (800) 342-9647 for free, confidential non-medical counseling

Everyone has moments when they need a break. Make sure your child is cared for during those moments.eliminate electronic distractions when providing care and supervision. It only takes a minute for an unintended tragedy to occur It only takes a minute to report

abuse or neglect. Contact the Family Advocacy Program or child protective services if you suspect a child is being abused. • If you see an unsupervised child, take immediate action. Find the child’s caregiver or call local law enforcement for help. If you suspect child abuse or neglect, there are resources you can turn to for help: • Call 911 or the military police if you are on an installation, if you witness violence or know someone is in immediate danger • Call the installation Family Advocacy Program or the local civilian Child Protective Ser-

vices if you suspect child abuse or neglect • Call your state’s child abuse reporting hotline or contact Childhelp at 800-4-A-CHILD (422-4453) When child abuse occurs, the Family Advocacy Program supports the child victims and provides services to parents.

“All children deserve a safe, stable and nuturing environnment. This is especially true for our military children worldwide ... As we observe National Child Abuse Prevention Month this April, we must always ensure that military families have the support they need to effectively recognize and prevent the scourge of child abuse and neglect in our communities.” – Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness) Robert L. Wilkie, in a recent memo recognizing April as Child Abuse Prevention Month

NMOTC announces Instructors of the Year

By MC2 Michael Lieberknecht Navy Medicine Operational Training Center

N

avy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) recently announced the command Instructors of the Year (IoY) for FY18, who were chosen from among IoYs across 16 NMOTC detachments and units spread across the nation. Lt. George Armas, from Naval Survival Training Institute (NSTI) in Pensacola was named Officer IoY. HMCS Earl Wagner, from Naval Undersea Medical Institute (NUMI) in Groton, Conn., was named Senior IoY. AWS1 Randy Eaton, from Aviation Survival Training Center (ASTC) in Pensacola, was named Mid-grade IoY, and HM2 Robert Zaruba from ASTC Jacksonville was named Junior IoY. Armas and Zaruba went on to be cho-

sen by NMOTC’s parent command, Navy Medicine Education Training and Logistics Command (NMETLC), as IoY in their respective categories. Each participant submitted a written package of their accomplishments throughout the year as well as answered both knowledge-based and hypothetical questions before a board of their supervisors. “It is a great feeling to have the chance to compete for honors at any level,” Za-

ruba said. To Zaruba, instructing other Sailors is a passion, and he firmly believes in the importance of teaching aviation survival training. He said when he takes his place at the podium, he tries to spread his excitement and positivity in what he is presenting in an effort to make his training “stick to Sailors once they return to the fleet.” Zaruba also explained that being himself adds a great deal to his success. He believes in going the extra mile and just being yourself. He makes time and extra effort to engage with the students who struggle instead of just “talking off the board.” He said, above all, the singlemost important aspect is to make instructing and learning fun. Feedback on his efforts has also been extremely positive. He appreciates his friends and family that have expressed their excitement to him, but he says the real honor is the attention he receives from his fellow Sailors. “The best is when I have mentors and previous co-workers reach out to me from all across the NMOTC

enterprise to give their well wishes,” Zaruba said. “It really makes a Sailor proud.” Now that Zaruba has been named Junior IoY at both NMOTC and NMETLC, he said there is a lot he has to change. He feels compelled to holding a higher standard as he sets the bar for his peers to emulate while still maintaining his love for his instructing duties and persisting with the effort that got him to where he is today. “Whenever I saw someone named IoY, I saw them as a role model,” Zaruba said. “If I can be that to someone else, then I feel I am helping shape the future of instructors at NMOTC.” Navy Medicine Operational Training Center is part of a health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide highquality health care to more than one million eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ships, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

SAPR Victim Advocate (VA) Spotlight of the Week ... This week’s spotlight is AO2

Brian Cunningham. Cunningham has been a motivated victim advocate (VA) since February 2017. He has volunteered more than 500 hours in the past six months. He determined to become an advocate after witnessing others affected by sexual assault. “I hated seeing them have to go through that time,” Cunningham said. “I want to be that person who someone can lean on and trust in arguably one of the hardest times of their life.” Coworkers describe him as driven, inspired and genuine. Cunningham is happiest when he is throwing a baseball with his three sons or attending church with them. FFSC photo

SARC or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation.

Florida’s mullet toss is back

The artwork for this year’s Interstate Mullet Toss at Flora-Bama, April 27 through 29. As every year, attendees will have a chance to toss a mullet from a 10-foot circle in Florida across the state line into Alabama. Photo from www.facebook.com/florabama From www.visit pensacola.com

Throw a dead fish over the state line. It is a weird tradition, yes, but one the folks who reside near the stretch of shoreline where Florida cozies up to Alabama embrace with pride. The Interstate Mullet Toss and Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party takes over the Flora-Bama Lounge, Package and Oyster Bar in Perdido Key April 27 through 29. It has grown into one of the

biggest beach parties in the South, packed with family fun, great food, and live music throughout the weekend-long celebration on the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. It is simple. All you have to do to join in on the fun is throw a dead mullet from a 10-foot circle in Florida across the state line into Alabama. Go for distance, do not throw out of bounds, watch your step and you may make it into the finals. A mullet is more than a vin-

tage 80’s hairdo; it is also the name of one of the more popular and plentiful fish indigenous to the Gulf Coast area. Mullet are the only fish with a gizzard and they are said to possess mystical properties. While folks on the East Coast use mullet as baitfish, here on the Gulf Coast it is a local delicacy and southern tradition, fried to perfection and served with hush puppies, cole slaw and a glass of sweet tea. But, for one weekend a year, it is nothing but a finned

Frisbee. Each year the FloraBama event raises more than $20,000 for local charities, focusing on gifts to youth organizations. Here are the rules: • Attendees will be tossing one whole mullet (approximately 1 pound) across the Florida/Alabama state line • NO gloves or sand on mullet are allowed • Mullet will be picked out of the water bucket • After you throw, retrieve your mullet and toss it back into the bucket • Mullet will be thrown from a 10 foot circle down a designated alley • No stepping out of the circle during your throw and follow through or you will be disqualified • Throwing your mullet out of bounds is an automatic disqualification • Do not miss; only one chance is given to qualify for finals • Six finalists in both the men’s and women’s divisions each day For more information, visit www.florabama.com.
