SAPR-Fleet complete; GMT going forward By Ed Barker NETC PAO

As Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) kicked-off, the recent Navy-wide Sexual Assault and Prevention – Fleet (SAPR-F) training for E6 and below Sailors recorded a 97 percent completion rate by early April, highlighting the Navy’s continued focus on this critical issue. “Overall performance by commands in completing the SAPR-F training was superb,” said Vice Adm. Scott Van Buskirk, Chief of Naval Personnel. “While we still have some remaining Sailors to train, from the top down, our Navy has embraced the need to take a stand against this crime and take care of our shipmates. Helping our Sailors understand that they have not only the power, but the responsibility to step in and prevent assaults is a major step forward.” Following on the heels of the Navy’s SAPR-F training, April’s Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention

Eggs? Milk? Butter? Rx? A shopping list that includes prescriptions will soon become a reality for many of the TRICARE beneficiaries in the Pensacola area. Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) is projected to open a new satellite pharmacy next to the Naval Air Station Pensacola Commissary by the end of the June. Having the new satellite pharmacy located near the commissary on West Highway 98 will provide beneficiaries a convenient option for prescription pick-ups and refill. “The satellite pharmacy will provide an additional point of service for patients to get their prescriptions,” said Lt. Briana Reed, assistant department head, NHP Pharmacy. “It will also serve as an additional site for refills, and the patients

will have the option to utilize a drivethrough window for pick-ups as well.” An estimated 150-200 patients with prescriptions from an outside civilian provider visit NHP’s pharmacy each day, according to Lt. Kenneth Jenkins, department head, NHP Pharmacy. The new pharmacy will provide individuals with an alternate and convenient place to get their prescriptions. During peak hours, traffic at NHP’s pharmacy can get rather high. Having a satellite pharmacy will lessen the traffic through NHP while also allowing more beneficiaries to be served overall. “Being able to serve more people at any one time should provide a more quality experience for the patients,” said Jenkins Beneficiaries will also be able to call in refills through the automated system

Nonmedical Soldiers cannot always depend on combat medics to provide care to wounded Soldiers, which is why Soldiers of 350th Civil Affairs Command (CACOM) attended a four-day Combat Lifesaver Course conducted by medics of Tactical Element Incorporated, a Floridabased tactical consulting and training organization, March 4-7. “The purpose of the Combat Lifesaver Course is to provide non-medical

Soldiers the skill sets to save lives by focusing on the three preventable causes of death on the battlefield,” said Don Heath, director of Operations and Training, for Tactical Element. “Bleeding from extremity wounds and applying a tourniquet; tension pneumothorax, which is when pressure increases in the chest cavity progressively reducing the Soldier’s ability to breath and inserting a large needle into the chest cavity to relieve the pressure, and managing an unconscious casualty’s airway by inserting a nasopharyngeal airway

and placing the casualty into a recovery position. “When we get Soldiers to focus on these three critical tasks; the number of lives being saved increases dramatically,” Heath said. To be successful in saving a life on the battlefield, Soldiers went through several exercises on how to provide care under fire, tactical field care and tactical evacuation care. Care under fire is described as being under hostile fire and very limited as to the care one can provide. Tactical

Advancement exam reviews seek motivated chiefs By Ens. Jacqueline Wengler NETC PAO

Active-duty Navy chief petty officers (E7-E9) can have a positive effect on the next generation of Sailors by participating in the 2013 Advancement Examination Readiness Reviews (AERR), announced in Naval Administrative Message (NavAdMin) 095-13, released April 12. This latest AERR NavAdMin details the schedule for panels held during the months of April through September at the Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC) at Saufley Field. Depending on

the number of ratings covered, AERR panels are one to two weeks in length and held throughout the year. Contributors serve as fleet subject matter experts (FSMEs) for their respective ratings to review and validate E4-E7 advancement exams and the associated banks of questions. Participants will receive temporary additional duty (TAD) orders from their parent command, paid for by NETPDTC. “We leverage the experience of FSMEs from schoolhouses and learning centers, as well as chiefs from a variety of platforms

and sea commands at each AERR,” said Stephanie Cannon, enlisted exam team leader at the Navy Advancement Center. “Each chief selected to participate in an AERR will tell you that what we do is very challenging work, but also will explain how rewarding it is to be a part of the process that helps the Navy advance the most qualified Sailors.” AGC(AW/SW) Justin Coryell, leading chief petty officer for the Training Management division at the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Professional Development

will be posted throughout the route to educate participants on Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) training with an assortment of team bonding exercises. The month of April has been designated as Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, symbolized with a teal colored ribbon. The purpose of SAAPM is to raise public awareness on sexual abuse through prevention; and to educate the community on how to be vigilant bystanders, to identify and intervene when a situation occurs. “The Amazing SAPR Race” is sponsored by NASP SAPR organizers. All participants will be entered in to a raffle for prizes, such as: a duty free week, duty freeweekend, duty free day and the highly coveted “jump-pass” for the galley chow line. Anyone interested in attending this event should contact AEC Chris Jorgensen at NATTC, 452-4971.

Month serves as another part of the Navy’s campaign to stop sexual assault and promote a culture of respect and professionalism in the force. The SAAPM Department of Defense Theme is “We own it….We’ll solve it… together.” “This month provides another opportunity to emphasize our ongoing commitment to instill a climate that does not tolerate, condone or ignore sexist behavior, sexual harassment or sexual assault,” added Van Buskirk. “We have accomplished a great deal in the past year with our leadership and fleet efforts, but we must remember that SAPR is an ongoing effort by everyone in the chain of command.” The recent SAPR-F training has also been approved to serve as this year’s General Military Training (GMT) for sexual assault awareness. Previous doc-

umentation of SAPR-F for E6 and below has been rolled over to automatically document completion of the FY13 SAPR GMT Lesson, Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Refresher Training (CPPD-GMT-SAPRRT-1.0). Command E7 and above are encouraged to complete required annual SAPR GMT training during Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month and may use the revised SAPR-F Course Facilitation Guide to meet the FY-13 SAPR GMT requirement vice completing CPPD-GMT-SAPRRT-1.0. “The revised SAPR-F training is not required for all E-7 and above, but is a convenient and highly encouraged method for them to complete the required SAPR GMT for the fiscal year,” said Capt. William Marvel, SAPR Task Force chief of staff. “It serves an additional benefit of exposing them to the SAPR-F training that their E-6 and below personnel received.”

field care is when the Soldier and the casualty are not under enemy fire and free to provide care to the casualty to the best of your ability, and tactical evacuation care is the care rendered while the casualty is evacuated to a collection point or medical treatment facility. On the final day a written exam was given, followed by lane exercises, which put Soldiers in simulated combat situations. The Soldiers were tested on the skills they learned in the lecture and how to perform under stress. NHP from page 1

Revival of the fittest: The cold side of marriage By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I’m about to make a highly inflammatory, clearly sexist, certainly offensive generalization. Readers will undoubtedly gasp at my insensitivity, and offer a myriad of anecdotal evidence to the contrary. But deep down in the recesses of our hearts and minds, in the spaces not corrupted by contrived societal notions of “equality” and “fairness,” we all secretly know these words to be true: Men are total wimps when they get sick. Several years after getting married, I began to notice a recurring behavioral pattern every time my husband caught a cold. Unnecessary sniffling, dramatic coughing, flamboyant sneezing – each occurrence followed by a moan, groan or whimper, along with a pitiable declaration such as “I don’t feel so good.” My husband’s pathetic actions while sick did not appear to be natural and spontaneous, but seemed intended to garner the maximum amount of attention (also known as “milking it.”) Additionally, when he got sick my husband would never simply approach me directly and say, ‘Honey, I think I’m coming down with something, and would appreciate you making me some chicken soup while I take it easy for the next couple days.” Instead, my husband

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 19 years (and running). Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. Molinari and her family are currently stationed at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, Fla. would put on a dramatic display in hopes of indirectly compelling us all to run and get him a blankie and a fudgesicle. “Why would my otherwise responsible, straightforward,

masculine military husband resort to such childish passive aggressive tactics?” I wondered. At first, I thought his germinduced plea for attention might have something to do with him having grown up in a big family. One of five siblings, my husband was flanked by the smartest child and the funniest child in the family, so he had to do whatever he could to get his parent’s attention. Occurrences which might otherwise seem unfortunate to a child, were savored in my husband’s large family. For example, normally a child would hate going with his mother to get orthopedic shoes, a tonsillectomy, allergy testing and speech therapy; however, these were precious moments in my husband’s childhood when his mother showed him special attention and bought him ice cream. My “big family” theory seemed to explain my husband’s theatrical reaction to the common cold, but then I started talking to other wives. Apparently, my husband isn’t

the only one – every man on the planet exhibits pathetic, overly dramatic, attentionseeking behaviors when ill. Ironically, just as otherwise strong husbands become groveling weaklings when stricken with the sniffles, their otherwise nurturing wives universally roll their eyes and find it impossible to muster sympathy. We wives feel guilt and wonder why we find our husbands’ childish ploys for attention so patently unattractive. We wish our natural nurturing instincts would kick in, but instead of making soup, we find ourselves muttering insensitive remarks under our breath such as, “He should get an Oscar for that sneeze” or “Building the groundwork for another afternoon nap, are we?” or “Grow a pair, would ya?” But perhaps all this irony and marital discourse during illness serves a higher purpose. Consider this: if sick males were babied by their female companions, the males might find it so enjoyable, there would be no reason to get back

to the work of hunting, gathering and mating to keep the tribe strong. So, nature has built in an automatic trigger – men who get sick become so pathetic, their women find them repulsive and cannot produce sympathy. This motivates the men to recover quickly so that they will become attractive to women again and can thereby resume their main goal in life: mating. So when my husband recently came down with a case of bronchitis, I decided that it was my wifely duty to be repulsed, to show no sympathy and to roll my eyes as much as humanly possible. It wasn’t easy to completely ignore my husband’s childish pleas for attention, but, I figured, it’s the least I could do.

Training command recognized as model employer of individuals with disabilities By Ed Barker NETC PAO

T

he Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC) was recognized April 3 as an exemplary Department of Defense (DoD) employer of individuals with disabilities. “In signing Executive Order 13548, Increasing Federal Employment of Individuals with Disabilities on July 26, 2010, President Barack Obama reminded agencies of our obligation to be model employers of individuals with disabilities,” said Stephen M. King, director of DoD Disability Programs. “The department has always taken this responsibility seriously, and I commend NETPDTC on reaching 3 percent participation by employees with targeted (serious) disabilities. DoD employees with disabilities are a vital part of our workforce and are valued contributors to our mission.” Although most federal agencies did not establish participation rate goals until recently, DoD established a 2 percent participation rate goal for individuals with targeted disabilities in 1987. “Despite DoD’s recent progress in the employment of individuals with disabilities, only two services have ever reached the 2 percent goal,” added King. “What has been accomplished by NETPDTC is phenomenal.” When asked about

NETPDTC’s success, Commanding Officer, Capt. Ann Burkhardt, attributes the command’s success in hiring and

ability employment data at her fingertips, Capt. Burkhardt can better assess NETPDTC's efforts to attract and retain a diverse workforce and identify potential barriers to employment for individuals with disabilities. “Reaching 3 percent means that your employees feel safe disclosing that they have a disability, which is no small feat,” continued King. “Despite DoD’s strict compliance with the Privacy Act, which prohibits how disability data may be used and greatly restricts who has access to such information, many employees

believes that it is essential for DoD leaders like NETPDTC to have access to accurate workforce statistics. “When employees choose not to identify, it makes it difficult for leadership to determine how resources to support their disability program can be best allocated,” said King. “With good dis-

elect not to disclose because they fear being discriminated against.” Chris Ducker, an instructional specialist at NETPDTC, suffers from limited vision as a result of albinism and began federal service in 2002 as a student aide. He was able to obtain a permanent position through disability hiring authority.

“All of my supervisors throughout my career have been very accommodating and have helped me to be productive,” said Ducker. “With today’s technology, the ability to enlarge material so I can read it is built into my computer and monitor – no specialized equipment is required. “All I've ever asked for was the opportunity to prove myself and work, and most people I’ve known with disabilities want the same,” added Ducker. Recently hired under the Wounded Warrior Program, James Larkin is a former aviation structural mechanic now working as a program analyst for the Navy Advancement Center at NETPDTC. “The opportunity and acceptance the advancement center team gives me as a Wounded Warrior is fantastic,” said Larkin. “Helping Sailors and commands with the advancement exam process is very rewarding.” King believes that DoD employees with disabilities are a vital part of the workforce and are valued contributors to the defense mission. “In large part due to the challenges they face, individuals with disabilities bring unique perspectives to the workplace,” said King. “If the department is to remain strong, we must use the abilities of our total force.” For more information about the Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center, go to https:// www. netc. navy. mil/ netc/ Commands/ NETPDTC.aspx

New syllabus coming at VT-10 UMFO program Story, photo by Ens. Carisa Terry VT-10

Training Air Wing Six (TW6) is in a transition phase to better its alwaysevolving training of naval flight officers (NFOs). TW6 currently consists of two squadrons; Training Squadron 10 (VT10) and Training Squadron 86 (VT-86). These two squadrons consist of primary, intermediate and advanced training for NFOs. Currently, only carrier based strike selectees go through all phases of training at TW6 where they are winged before proceeding to their respective fleet replacement squadrons (FRS) where they learn their fleet mission in their specific aircraft. In the next year, TW6 is making some major changes to its current program starting with starting a new syllabus at VT-10, the Undergraduate Military Flight Officer (UMFO). This syllabus gives the students more simulator time with less flight hours thus decreasing cost and increasing the effectiveness and quality of NFO train-

ing. The UMFO program splits primary into two phases. The first phase teaches students the basic flight fundamentals, instrument and visual navigation. After student flight officers (SNFOs) finish the first phase of primary they will either select land based or carrier-based aviation. If SNFOs select land-based aviation they will go to Training Air Wing 4 (VT-4) which will be standing up FY14. VT-4 is going to be a multicrew simulator based squadron, where land based SNFOs will be winged before they go to their respective FRS, which has never been done before. After phase one of primary, SNFOs whom select carrier based aircraft they will continue to phase two of primary, where SNFOs learn more advanced instrument navigation, section instrument navigation and formation flying. Following primary, all carrier-based selectees continue on to T-6A intermediate, where they do more section instrument training, section visual navigation and tactical formation flights.

A student pre-flights a T-6A for a training flight.

This stage of training is designed to transition straight into advanced (VT86) for those who select strike/fighter where they will be starting their new Virtual Mission Training System (VMTS) in October. For the time being, if SNFOs select E2s after intermediate they will be trained in a second intermediate stage with the

soon to be retired T-39 until VT-4 starts, with its state of the art simulators. These changes will take place over the next two years and will improve NFO training for the fleet. The new program and syllabus will produce more simulator training, keeping training cost low while still delivering quality training to SNFOs.

NASP team produces SAAPM video By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Commande Public Affairs

A

team of Sailors from the Naval Air Technical Training Center’s Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) and staff from the Naval Education and Training Command joined forces April 12 to produce a Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) public service anouncement (PSA). The PSA will be entered into a Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) SAPR video contest sponsored by the Naval Personnel Command (NPC). The goal of the contest is to promote awareness of SAPR in the Navy, encouraging bystander intervention among viewers and advocating victim assistance and support. “We designed the PSA video contest to encourage Sailors across the Navy to participate in SAAPM activities and help get the word out about SAPR,” said Alice Bellafiore, SAPR program analyst for the Chief of Naval Operations. “It challenges Sailors to focus their efforts on making PSAs that incorporate both DoD and Navy SAAPM themes, ‘We own it… We’ll solve it… Together.’ ” The contest videos are required to focus on at least one of the four SAPR lines of effort: Education and awareness, prevention and intervention, victim advocacy and resiliency, or investigation

and accountability. The NATTC CSADD mentor, AC1(AW/SW) David Lee commented that his students were eager to get involved with the project. “This was a great opportunity for our local CSADD chapter to get involved in SAAPM,” Lee said. “Shooting the video was not only fun for the NATTC students, but can also help with getting the SAPR message out to the fleet in an entertaining form.” Directing the project was Steven Vanderwerff, NETC public affairs specialist and photojournalist who is also a graduate of the Syracuse University Military Motion Media program. “All we had to say to the NATTC CSADD students was the video would

involve zombies – and they were interested,” Vanderwerff said. “We portrayed the zombies as Sailors who were making bad choices and tempting our heroine, and then a group of good Sailors intervened to save her. We added in a little humor to keep it interesting and solidify the message.” The deadline for entering videos in the SAAPM PSA contest is today, April 19, and the winning submission will be broadcast on Direct-to-Sailor Television and provided to the American Forces Network and Pentagon channel. The top videos will be announced in a future Navy news service story on the Navy.mil website: www.navy.mil. Sexual Assault Prevention and Response is an important element of the

readiness area of the 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative which consolidates a set of objectives and policies, new and existing, to maximize Sailor and Marine personal readiness, build resiliency and hone the most combat-effective force in the history of the Navy and Marine Corps. The Department of the Navy is working to aggressively to prevent sexual assaults, to support sexual assault victims, and to hold offenders accountable. Help raise awareness by joining the conversation on social media using #SexualAssault and #SAAPM.

TraWing-5 Commodore Col. James Grace retires From NASWF PAO

An honorable Marine career came full circle March 21 as Training Air Wing Five’s (TraWing-5) commodore ended his career where it started roughly 30 years ago. As a young, wetbehind-the-ears pilot, 2nd Lt. James Grace could only concern himself with the demands of flight training. Now, looking back as a full-bird colonel, he oversaw the Navy’s largest training wing full of the same type of ambitious, fresh-faced students as he used to be. It was a job he found difficult to walk away from. “As you know, this award represents the hard work by the men and women, officers, enlisted and wonderful Navy civilians who come to work every day to shape the future of naval aviation,” he stated after receiving his second Legion of Merit medal. “What better mission is there? And what better job could anyone have as they leave the Marine Corps than to shape those who will take their place?” TraWing-5 was simply the final stop on a long and distinguished career. A Portland State University graduate in 1982, Grace joined the Marines in 1983 and earned his “wings of gold” at NAS Whiting Field in 1984, achieving Commodore’s List honors along the way – an award he has bestowed many times during the past 18 months. He began flying the UH-1N (Huey) at MCAS Camp Pendleton, Calif. After a few months, he was assigned to HMA-369 and

deployed twice to Okinawa, Japan. It was the beginning of a love affair, both with the culture and a young Navy nurse named Dorothy, whom he later married. “Okinawa was the culmination of our training. I loved Japan. I have a real fondness for the culture and the people there,” Grace said about the location where he served four tours. “I had two kids and left with Dorothy pregnant with our third. You could say the creation of the Grace family pretty much happened in Japan.” Although the “clan” of Dorothy, Olivia, James, William and Charlotte may have begun in Japan, Grace’s family ties with the military began at Naval Air Station Whiting Field. His brother, Bill, went through advanced flight training just a few months ahead of Grace. The elder Grace was finishing up his time at Helicopter Training Squadron 18 (HT-18) as James was preparing to solo out of Training Squadron Two (VT-2) in the T-34C. The brothers also served together on the West Coast at Camp Pendleton for a while early in their careers, and they didn’t diverge on separate career paths until they were majors. Bill retired as a colonel in 2008, and is now serving as the inspector general for the Virginia Military Institute. The younger Grace was promoted to his current rank while pursuing a master’s degree in national security strategy at the Naval War College in Newport, R.I. Grace also served squadron tours with HMLA-367, HMLA-267,

HMT-303, HMM-266 and HMLA-167. Additionally, he completed tours with 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, 1st Marine Division; and Headquarters Marine Corps in the Aviation Weapons Requirements Branch, before gaining his first command – returning as the head of HMLA-167. When he relinquished command of the squadron, Grace was most proud of the fact that his team returned intact from their deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). The unit was the first Marine helicopter squadron in Iraq for the second increment of OIF. His final two tours before arriving to NAS Whiting Field, were as the Joint Staff J3 Division

chief for Central Command and as the director of safety for Headquarters Marine Corps. Having his career recognized in front of family and friends was a humbling and gratifying experience for the veteran helicopter pilot. “Back then, I couldn’t envision anything past becoming a U.S. Marine Corps pilot. Tactical proficiency was the goal,” he said about his early beginnings in the flight program. “Everything I’ve attained, well, it’s humbling, because I know it is because of those who worked with me and allowed me to get to this point.” While moving on from the Marines, Grace isn’t planning on moving out

of the area. With Dorothy firmly ensconced as a nurse manager with Santa Rosa Medical Center, he is content to stay in the area he calls a “national asset.” While part of that may be the low cost of living, the natural beauty and the resources for a strong military presence; Grace refers back to the people who make up the community here. “In the 30 years I have been in the military, there has been no place like Santa Rosa County,” he said. “We fly over everybody’s homes and get very few complaints. Our students are recognized out in town and thanked for their service. Even our international students are thanked, and that’s something they don’t even see in their own countries.”

Finishing his career as the leader of a Navy command has been “unbelievable” to Grace. As the second Marine commodore of the training wing, he literally and figuratively passed the hat to his relief during the change of command ceremony that also served as his retirement ceremony. Capt. James Fisher assumed command of the wing and Col. Gary Kling becomes the new deputy commodore. Much as former commodore, Col. Joseph Walsh, passed a faux 18th century commodore’s hat to him, Grace passed that same hat on to Kling, who is in line to be the third Marine commander of TraWing5. Grace leaves knowing that the unit is in good hands, and that the lessons he learned as a young pilot are similarly being instilled in the young students today. Just like when he was a young pilot focused on proficiency in the cockpit, student military aviators still have a lot to learn even after getting their wings. It is a lesson he learned after he was a pilot and hopes that today’s students grasp it earlier. “We have a huge mission here that goes beyond teaching our young officers how to fly. If I can leave any message, it is that everything is about people. It is about the role of being an officer. Will they be the leaders they should be for their enlisted folks? It is a huge responsibility they haven’t had the chance to grasp yet – that manners count, that being humble counts, that relationships count or even just how important a ‘thank you’ is,” he said.

SecNav’s Earth Day message ////////////////////////// Released by Donald Shregardus Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Environment)

The Navy and Marine Corps operate globally and the military presence around the world gives us the opportunity and responsibility to make a difference for the planet. Earth Day is April 22. On Earth Day and throughout April, the Navy and Marine Corps team – as well as individual Sailors, Marines, civilian employees, and families – have the opportunity to take local action to demonstrate commitment to protecting the environment. No matter where you serve, you can take action by participating in local clean-ups, reducing waste, increasing awareness of neighborhood recycling programs, saving energy, or planting indigenous trees in your area. The options are limitless. Everyone can find or create a way to take local action. Department of the Navy leadership is keenly aware of the environmental challenges ahead. Climate change is leading to rising sea levels and less predictable weather patterns in the areas where we train and operate. The rapid melting of the arc-

tic ice cap is driving new national security strategies and pressing global environmental concerns. We will continue analyzing these trends and working to ensure forces are capable of meeting mission requirements. Only through a collective effort can the military and the nation

effective Earth Day programs can be accomplished at little or no expense. Picking up trash at a local park, clearing debris from a beach, or volunteering with a local environmental project can all be done on a shoestring budget. Bring your coworkers, friends, shipmates, and fellow

Resident shines at – and away from – hospital Story, photo by Jason J. Bortz NHP PAO

Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) has many stars, but Lt. Kevin Bernstein, a family medicine resident at NHP, is a true rock star. Bernstein, 29, is not only one of the bright young doctors of the Navy, but is also an avid drummer, playing everything from jazz to rock ‘n’ roll. Despite his love for playing the drums, Bernstein’s true passion is medicine. Growing up in Deer Park, N.Y., Bernstein was inspired as a youth to be a doctor when his mother, a nurse, was injured on the job. “I wanted to help her,” said Bernstein. “I started volunteering at a local hospital and eventually went on a humanitarian trip to Honduras. I saw people with preventable illnesses and I really just wanted to help everybody.” After completing his undergraduate degree at Penn State, Bernstein enrolled at Drexel University where he attained a master’s degree in medical science and continued there for his medical school. It was while attending medical school that Bernstein’s future path would be presented to him. Bernstein often searched for extracurricular activities, especially ones that improved his leadership skills. As a member of the Commission on Education with the American Academy of Family Physicians, he met Capt.

Maureen Padden, the commanding officer for NHP, who at the time was the executive officer of NHP. Bernstein talked to her about the similarities and differences between Navy and civilian medicine and was immediately drawn to the Navy. “I wanted something where everyone is (medically) covered and I could focus on medicine,” said Bernstein, who has a brother in the Navy serving as a culinary specialist. “I also wanted to learn about new programs the Navy was developing like Medical Home Port.” Medical Home Port is a teambased approach to primary health care where patients are assigned to a Medical Home Port Team. Providers within each team work closely with patients to ensure they are receiving all-inclusive medical care. The Medical Home Port approach emphasizes continuity between patients and providers, which reduces the frequency of patient visits, improves patient satisfaction and develops trust between patients and providers. As excited as Bernstein was about the prospect of joining the Navy, Padden was also excited about bringing a person of Bernstein’s quality into the Navy. “(Lt. Bernstein) is the best person I ever recruited into Navy medicine,” said Padden. “He is smart and passionate about improving health care, and I think I upset a few civilian residency programs when I recruited him away.”

Lt. Kevin Bernstein, a family medicine resident at NHP, laughs with a patient during an exam.

After completing medical school, Bernstein attended the Officer Development School in Newport, R.I., and then reported to NHP in June 2011 to begin his residency program. The Family Medicine Residency Program at NHP is three years long and residents are closely supervised by fully licensed physicians. At the end of the third year, residents take the board exam certified by the Family Board of Medicine to be a certified physician. In June 2012, Bernstein received an additional surprise when Padden, who mentored and encouraged him to join the Navy, returned to NHP as the commanding officer after having

served at the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BuMed) as the director of Medical Home Port for Navy medicine. “It has been such a great opportunity to learn from her and then work under her,” said Bernstein. Despite the pressures of preparing for his board exam this summer, Bernstein has not lost his desire to actively participate in outside organizations and projects. He is a member of several committees at NHP to include the Health Ethics Committee and the Resident Advisory Committee and is the American Academy of Family Physicians liaison. He actively participates with several organizations such as the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation, the Center for the History of Family Medicine and the Uniformed Services Academy of Family Physicians. Bernstein has also written more than 15 research papers that have been published and has earned many awards, including election to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society this year. The Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society is a professional medical organization that recognizes excellence in scholarship and in the profession of medicine. A very select number of medical students, residents or faculty are elected to this organization. He even finds time to actively engage with social media and was recently named by Medical Economics as one of

the top 20 family doctors to follow on Twitter. When asked how he had time to be involved in so many afterhour activities and write so many research papers, Bernstein stated, “It’s important to let the medical community know what we are doing here (at Naval Hospital Pensacola) and the importance of Medical Home Port.” With all of the efforts Bernstein puts into health care, he still manages to find time to enjoy himself outside of work. A varsity golfer in high school, he still enjoys playing and spending time on the beach with his wife. And of course, Bernstein still manages to find time to play the drums and has played in several bands. After he completes his board exam next spring, Bernstein will have several options. He could be a junior faculty member at another residency program, work at a Medical Treatment Facility or a branch clinic or he could go to the operational side of the Navy and deploy on a ship. Regardless of the decision Bernstein makes, he has no desire to leave the Navy anytime soon. In fact, he has a goal that he would like to obtain someday. “I would like to be the surgeon general of the Navy someday,” said Bernstein. This may be a lofty goal for some, but to those who work with him, it is completely plausible. “I would not be surprised if he became the surgeon general someday,” said Padden.

Screening test can help identify alcohol problem From Substance Abuse Counseling Center, Pensacola

Grabbing a beer after work, meeting friends for a drink, or sipping a glass of wine with dinner are enjoyable moments for most people. However, if you have an alcohol problem, these moments can lead to trouble in many areas of your life. People often wonder where to draw the line with their drinking, and how they can tell if their drinking is a problem that they need to address. Fortunately, there is a screening tool available to service members, veterans and their families that will help determine

if someone has an alcohol problem. It is free and anonymous and available at www.Drinking IQ.org. Substance Abuse Counseling Center (SACC), Pensacola,

DTC never be bored

located at Marine Aviation Training Support Group-21 (MATSG-21) onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, is encouraging service members, veterans and their families to take a free, anonymous alcohol-use selfassessment at www.Drinking IQ.org. The assessment takes only a few minutes and will tell the participant if their symptoms are consistent with an alcohol problem. These assessments are provided by Military Pathways, a voluntary, anonymous mental health and alcohol self-assessment and referral program offered to service members, veterans and their families. It is

available online and through inperson events. This program is offered without charge through a contract with the Department of Defense, with technical support from the Center for Technology and Telehealth (T2).
