Marine awarded Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for saving child’s life Story, photo by Ens. Christopher Catlett NASP Public Affairs Office

The call to action is often unpredictable. When the call comes it can test our courage, preparedness and resolve. The choice someone might have to make in an instant could be between life and death. A service member could reasonably expect this dilemma to occur on deployment rather than at home. But the call to action came to Marine Corps Sgt. Tyler Harman, an apprentice technical training instructor for Marine Aviation Training Support Group (MATSG) 23, when he had to quickly respond to save a choking child’s life. On Feb. 1, Harman’s wife alerted him that their neighbor’s 3-year-old son Rylan Strother was choking. Harman took control of the situation by directing Rylan’s father to call 911 while he began to administer CPR to the child, attempting to restore his breathing. During his administration of CPR, Har-

man noticed there was a grape lodged in the child’s throat. He proceeded to use the finger swipe technique to remove it from Rylan’s airway. Because of Harman’s timely response and handling of the situation he was able to restore the child’s breathing. This bought time for the paramedics to arrive, evaluate Rylan and safely transport the child to the hospital for further observation. Rylan was released later that night in good health. Harman’s MATSG-23 command onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) deemed him deserving of the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, awarded for performing critical life-saving measures, April 12. Prior to the award ceremony, Harman was asked what his first thought was after being notified that Rylan was choking. He said his first thought was to take charge of the situation. His confidence came from the military training that he has gone through several times for

NASP Notes ...

NASP ‘Safety Dept. Snippets’ ... A work zone is everyone’s responsibility: During the past five years, more than 4,400 persons have died in work zone crashe s . Eighty-five percent of those fatalities were inside the vehicle and most of them were the driver. Rear-end crashes are the most common type of work zone crash. As a driver, recognize your part by slowing down, eliminate all distractions and dedicate your full attention to the work zone, and DO NOT

The only exception is the authorized smoking areas and authorized family housing units. For example, after you smoke your e-cigarette in the authorized smoking area, you have to put it back in your own car before you go back to your desk. Three Sailors were injured on NAS Pensacola and NASP Corry Station before the policy was signed by the NASP CO. The policy applies to all activities and personnel inside the fencelines.

Marine from page 1 when you have to utilize the training you have been given. It doesn’t matter if you are deployed or not, always be ready.” USMC Maj. Javier Garcia, commanding officer of Aviation Maintenance Squadron 2 (AMS-2) onboard NAS Pensacola, presented Harman’s award. “If I were to use two words to describe him, he is the quiet professional,” Garcia said, speaking to a crowd of trainees and instructors from MATSG-23. Garcia stated that Harman did not go to the squadron looking for an award or recognition. In fact, no one at the squadron would have know that Harman saved young Rylan’s life if the grandfather of Rylan, who happens to be a Sergeant Major in the Marine Corps, had not called Harman’s command and told them the story. “That speaks volumes about Sgt. Harman,” Garcia said. “We cannot speak enough about the actions and the type of Marine that Sgt. Harman is.” Garcia stated that taking life is often associated with Marines. However, when a

Marine saves a life it can sometimes be overlooked. “Its not always about hoorah hoorah, kill kill,” Garcia said. “We are here to serve. We serve the Marine Corps, we serve our community, we serve our nation… Sgt. Harman embodies the spirit of service, selfless.” When Harman was asked how does it feel to be honored in such a way he said that it is a humbling experience. “I wasn’t expecting this kind of recognition when this event first took place,” Harman said. “I was just glad that Rylan was okay.” Harman has two children himself, a 5-month-old daughter Gracie and a son Mason, who is only two months younger than Rylan. After the incident, the two families have developed a friendship and Rylan and Mason now play with one another. Amber Strother, the mother of Rylan, who was present at the award ceremony, expressed her thankfulness for Harman’s actions and said, “I don’t want to think about what would have happened if they weren’t home.”

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer – Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer – Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship. The image on the right side is one of the

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. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing, 314 North Spring St., Suite A, Pensacola, Fla. 32501, in the interest of military and ci-

Alcohol Awareness Month is not only about underage drinking but also about understanding one’s self and knowing when to seek help if it is needed. A service member suffering from an alcohol abuse problem should not fear negative repercussions for seeking help. If the service member believes they have a problem they have the ability to refer themselves for help. In the case of a self-referral, service members are able to get the help they need without any negative repercussions. If their command believes the service member may have a problem, they are able to issue a command referral which may hold some negative repercussions. “A lot of people have this misconception that if they tell someone that they have an alcohol problem they will get in trouble,” Deer said. “That is not the case. I hope everyone realizes that if they have a problem they can always come to any DAPA member and just ask for help.” For more information on NADAP programs, go to www.public.navy.mil/ BUPERS-NPC/SUPPORT/21ST_CENTURY_ SAILOR/NADAP/Pages/default2.aspx.

April is Month of the Military Child

Remember special needs children

quires health care and related services beyond what is typical. While having a special needs child may not be unusual, raising a child with a long-term medical condition can be more difficult, costly, timeconsuming and stressful than raising one without special needs.

In the United States, an estimated 20 percent of children have some type of special health care need, which can range from at-

ments and frequent relocations. One way of supporting special needs military parents is through research. At the Naval Health Research Center (NHRC), our mission is to optimize the health and readiness of service members. This means our research portfolio includes studies that focus on military families and the impact they have on service member readiness. A study led by NHRC’s Health and Behavioral Sciences department is currently examining the career and health trajectories of active duty personnel who parent children with special health care needs. Researchers collected data from the Career History Archival Medical and Personnel System (CHAMPS), a database at NHRC with records for more than 10 million service members. They merged this data with information from the Department of Defense Birth and Infant Health Research (BIHR) program, an NHRC-led program designed to monitor the health of infants born to military families. The total study population consisted of more than 1.9 million service members. Using BIHR, the researchers identified children born between 2007 and 2009 to active duty military families and conducted further analysis to identify those children with special health care needs. By combining the data from BIHR with CHAMPS data, researchers identified the active duty parents of those special needs children and tracked their medical and career outcomes for 5 to 7 years after the

child’s birth. Preliminary results for military career trajectories indicate that military parents who care for children with special health care needs were more likely to remain in the military compared to military parents without special needs children. This initial finding is just the beginning. NHRC researchers are continuing to examine the large dataset they collected and anticipate that further analysis will provide more information about the career outcomes of military parents with special needs children, including common types of discharges and rates of attrition. In addition to ongoing research at NHRC, there will be a new breakout session at the upcoming 2018 Military Health System Research Symposium that focuses on the health and readiness of military families. Researchers throughout military medicine will come together to discuss the military family system—how to define it, how family health and readiness can positively impact service members, and how to provide support to bolster the resilience of military families. Improving military readiness means researching all facets of a service member’s life. This includes the military family system and the parentchild dynamic – facets that can positively impact the health and readiness of individual military personnel. By working together, military researchers can build a deeper understanding of the relationships between military families and the health and readiness of our active duty force.

Mattis, Dunford detail attacks on Syrian chemical weapons arsenal By Jim Garamone DoD News, Defense Media Activity

W

ASHINGTON – U.S., British and French air and naval forces launched attacks against the Syrian government’s chemical weapon arsenal in retaliation for the use of such weapons on civilians, Defense Secretary James N. Mattis and Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a Pentagon news conference April 13. “As the world knows, the Syrian people have suffered terribly under the prolonged brutality of the Assad regime,” the secretary said. “On April 7, the regime decided to again defy the norms of civilized people showing callous disregard for international law by using chemical weapons to murder women, children and other innocents. We and our allies find these atrocities inexcusable.” President Donald J. Trump ordered the strikes to stop the regime from using such inhumane weapons again. Mattis said stopping the atrocities is in the vital national interests of the United States. The strikes hit Syrian leader Bashar Assad’s chemical weapon research, development and production facilities. The strikes tonight were far harder than the ones last year, when the United States launched 58 missiles against the Shayrat air

base following a chemical attack. “Obviously, the Assad regime did not get the message last year,” Mattis said. The strikes now send a very clear message to Syrian leaders “that they should not perpetrate another chemical weapons attack for which they will be held accountable,” the secretary said. Mattis emphasized that the strikes were directed against the Syrian regime, and the strike planners went to great lengths to avoid civilian and foreign casualties. “It is a time for all civilized nations to urgently unite to end the Syrian civil war by supporting the United Nations backed Geneva peace process,” the secretary said. The three nations forces were integrated throughout the planning and execution of the operation, Dunford said.

“The targets that were struck and destroyed were specifically associated with the Syrian regime chemical weapons program,” the chairman said. The first target was a scientific research center in the

greater Damascus area. The military facility was a center for research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological agents, the general said. The second target was a chemical weapons storage fa-

Pentagon officials describe Syria strikes, message to Assad By Jim Garamone DoD News, Defense Media Activity

The Syrian regime killed at least 45 people and sickened hundreds of others in a chemical weapons attack on Douma, Syria, April 7, and April 13, U.S., British and French service members launched attacks that severely degraded the Syrian chemical arsenal and sent a message to Syrian leader Bashir Assad to stop using chemical weapons against his own people. Chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana W. White and Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, the Joint Staff director, briefed the press April 13 from the Pentagon on the operation saying it was successful and that there were no allied casualties. White said the attack on innocent civilians in Douma “demanded a response,” and the allies targeted the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons infrastructure. “We launched these strikes to limit Syria’s ability to use chemical weapons in the future,” she said. The operation was carefully orchestrated and methodically planned to lessen chances

“I would use three words to describe the operation: Precise, overwhelming and effective.” The allies fired 105 weapons at these targets. The missiles came from British, French and American platforms in the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Eastern Mediterranean, McKenzie said. “All weapons hit their targets close to the designated time on target,” he said. The American ships were: the USS Monterrey, the USS Laboon, the USS Higgins and the submarine USS John Warner. Two B-1 Lancer bombers launched joint air-tosurface stand-off missiles. Support aircraft – tankers, fighters, electronic warfare aircraft and more – also participated. “None of our aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses,” McKenzie said. “We have no indication that Russian air defenses were employed.” Syrian response was ineffectual as the Syrians launched surface-to-air missiles on a ballistic trajectory. Since the strike, U.S. officials have not seen any military response from actors within Syria.

of civilian casualties, the spokesperson said. The missiles hit targets during the Syrian pre-dawn hours, and planners, weaponeers and aircrew were careful to ensure little collateral damage. “We successfully hit every target,” White said. Missiles hit three distinct military chemical weapons targets. “The three facilities are – or more appropriately, were – the fundamental components of the regime’s chemical weapons warfare infrastructure,” McKenzie said. One target, the Barzah center, housed the regime’s research, development and production center for chemical and biological weapons. Photos taken after the strike show that where once three buildings stood, there is now nothing but rubble. Strikes also hit a chemical weapons storage facility and a chemical bunker facility. “We selected these targets carefully to minimize the risk to innocent civilians,” the general said. “We are still conducting a more detailed damage assessment, but initial indications are that we accomplished our military objectives without material interference,” he said.

cility west of Homs. “We assess this was the primary location of Syrian sarin and precursor production equipment,” he said. “The third target ... contained both a chemical weapons storage facility and an important command post.” The strikes should result in a long-term degradation of Syria’s chemical and biological warfare capabilities, the chairman said. “The strike was not only a strong message to the regime that their actions were inexcusable, but it also inflicted maximum damage without unnecessary risks to civilians,” Dunford said. The strike was also planned to mitigate the risk to Russian forces that are supporting the Assad regime, the general said. More than double the amount of ordnance used in last year’s strike was used in this one, Dunford said. He said there were reports of Syrian antiaircraft actions, but it is too early to assess the effectiveness. There were no allied casualties. The strike is meant to deter Assad from contemplating another attack, and allied forces are ready to continue the action if Assad continues to use these banned weapons, Mattis said.

Navy honors service of Vietnam War veterans By MC2 Destiny Cheek Naval History and Heritage Command

WASHINGTON (NNS) – The Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) held a commemoration ceremony in honor of Vietnam War Veterans Day at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy’s Cold War Gallery located on the Washington Navy Yard, March 29.

NASWF receives environmental excellence award By Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Staff

I

n an announcement earlier this month, NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) received the Chief of Naval Operations Environmental award for Environmental Quality, Non-Industrial Installation. The annual Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Environmental Awards Program recognizes Navy ships, installations and people for outstanding performance in promoting environmental stewardship. The program showcases ac-

complishments in Natural Resources Conservation, Cultural Resources Management, Environment Quality, Sustainability, Environmental Restoration, Environmental Excellence in Weapon System Acquisition and Environmental Planning

according to the website for the Office of the Secretary of the Navy in Washington, DC. “I am very proud of the great work our environmental team does every day to ensure we’re good stewards and partners in the local area,” NAS WF Commanding Officer, Capt. Paul Bowdich said. “NAS Whiting Field strives for excellence in promoting best practices in safeguarding our natural resources. Congratulations to the entire team.” The CNO Environmental Awards are the first of three levels within the DoD competition. All CNO winners advance to the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) Environmental Awards competition.

Fol lowing that level is the Secretary of Defense level (SECDEF) Environmental Award. “The Whiting Field environmental program is large and complex for an installation this size. It is great to see the environmental team being recognized for their hard work,” NAVFAC’s Wes Hamill, NAS WF deputy public works officer said. A total of 61 nominations from commands around the world were received in nine award categories. Environmental subject matter experts

r ev iewe d the submissions and selected winners for each of the categories. In a released statement earlier this week, Vice Adm. D. R. Smith relayed, “Our Navy Sailors and civilians work in diverse ecosystems worldwide while performing our national security mission. 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.”

Navarre native earns his Wings of Gold Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Luke Rague NASWF Public Affairs Staff

Lt.j.g. Tyler Mayor, earned his Wings of Gold onboard Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) April 13 after growing up in nearby Navarre, where he was cradled by military aviation. Surrounded by NAS Pensacola, NASWF and Eglin Air Force Base (EAFB), Mayor said it was the exposure of aircraft and flying operations that helped steer him into aviation. “As a kid, you always have aspirations to have an ‘awesome job’ like astronaut, doctor, firefighter, or pilot,” Mayor said. “Seeing aircraft from both the Air Force and Navy flying around on an almost daily basis just further inspired the idea of becoming an aviator.” Mayor did not immediately pursue his dreams of flight. He graduated from Navarre High School in 2010 and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology Sciences from Florida State University in 2014. “I had the dream to fly when I was a kid and it slowly faded away growing up,” Mayor said. “I never thought about applying until my dad asked if I had thought about it when I graduated college. The next week I reached out to the Navy and started the process.” After commissioning at Officer Can-

didate School in Newport, R.I. in early 2016, Mayor began his road to winging in the same place naval aviators have started for decades, with six weeks of classroom academics and physiological training in Aviation Pre-flight Indoctrination (API) onboard NAS Pensacola. He then moved to Corpus Christi, Texas for Primary Flight Training in the Training Squadron 27 (VT-27), flying the T-6B Texan II. Mayor was selected following primary flight training for his top choice, flying the TH-57 Sea Ranger helicopter onboard NAS Whiting Field, under Helicopter Training Squadron Eight (HT-8). “Flight school has definitely increased my personal discipline,” Mayor said.

“This is, by far, one of the most challenging experiences I have undergone. The amount of time and effort that goes into training, including mental and physical readiness is overwhelming.” Mayor recognized early on that naval flight training requires more than raw intelligence out of students. “All of this,” Mayor said, “including maintaining a healthy work life balance, was a steep learning curve that got progressively more natural over time.” But once Mayor had a chance to rest and look around, he was struck by the uniqueness of his position and how strong the bond is among students. “Being trusted with a multi-million

dollar aircraft is a humbling thought in its own,” Mayor said. “While that is an extraordinary thing in itself, I’m awed by the camaraderie the students have with one another during flight school. I would argue that flight school is almost an impossible feat if you tried learning it on your own. Students who have their individual stressors will drop what they are doing to explain in depth any questions you may have. It truly is a no man left behind mindset.” Mayor was joined on stage by his mother, Lisa Mayor, and was pinned with his Wings of Gold by his father, retired SMSgt Robert Mayor, an Air Force veteran with 28 years of service in logistics planning. “He has been my role model my entire life,” Mayor said. “I would not be where I am today without his guidance and support.” Mayor is headed to Jacksonville for advanced training in the MH-60R Seahawk, looking forward to being a part of something that is greater than him. Mayor aspires to “being a person who can inspire those around them and make an impact on their lives,” he said. “Not only do I feel this will increase mission readiness by creating an intrinsic desire to put in one-hundred percent, but it will also allow for a higher morale which is huge during stressful times.”

arth Day was founded in 1970 by Sen. Gaylord Nelson as a grassroots effort to increase awareness of environmental issues.

Since the 1990s, the Department of the Navy and other military services have typically celebrated Earth Day annually with themes, “green” installation events that are open to the public and/or military personnel, participation in community and/or educational outreach activities, and articles or other information products that highlight local Earth Day events and ongoing Navy/Marine Corps environmental and energy programs. Navy and Marine Corps commands worldwide celebrate Earth Day on the official date of April 22 and throughout the months of April and May, depending on the climate of their operating areas and the nature of their day-to-day missions. Earth Day activities build relationships across command departments, with sister services and government agencies, and the local communities where military personnel live and work. Earth fairs, recycling contests, 5K runs, beach and neighborhood trash

in for Earth Day during the past four decades. Energy saving actions, such as swapping out any incandescent light bulbs

for LEDs and high-efficiency compact florescent bulbs, shutting off unneeded lights, insulating around doors and windows and seeking other creative means to conserve energy are also practical ideas that match the spirit of Earth Day, make operations more sustainable and ultimately support the mission. The U.S. Navy operates thousands of aircraft, hundreds of battle force and auxiliary ships; submarines and approximately 200 installations to support those assets worldwide. Missions includes defense, force projection, humanitarian assistance, disaster relief, anti-piracy and other operations in support of the nation’s objectives. As that mission continues, the U.S. Navy also has a responsibility to serve as a good steward of the environment. The Navy demonstrates that commitment by investing in programs that minimize, and in some cases eliminate, the effects of its operations on the environment.

VOLED recognized for outstanding customer service By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) Public Affairs

N

avy Voluntary Education (VOLED) received the “Best Customer Service” award for December 2017, February 2018 and March 2018 from LiveHelpNow!, a leading help-desk platform provider. “In 2015, LiveHelpNow! rolled out a customer service satisfaction tracking tool called “LiveHelpNow! challenge” ranking all of our 12,000-plus clients by measuring 12 customer service metrics and 50 different criteria, including customer surveys, operator response times, knowledge, proactiveness, first call resolution, and other metrics,” Michael Kansky, chief technology officer at LiveHelpNow! said. Every month LiveHelpNow! clients compete to be included in the list of top 100 companies providing best customer service to their customers. “Since our conversion to a virtual service delivery model, we’ve strived to become an agile, customer-service focused organization helping Sailors to reach their educational goals,” Ernest D’Antonio, Navy VOLED director said. “Receiving recognition as compared to our peers in the customer service industry demonstrates we’re headed in the right direction.” AW2 Julia Lupo, Naval Air Technical

Training Center (NATTC) Airframes instructor, is currently working toward her bachelor’s degree in aeronautics with Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. “Between the Virtual Education Center, website, help tickets, and chat availability, getting your VOLED questions answered is pretty easy,” Lupo said. “The WebTA automation and e-mail updates help keep you up-to-date and informed, so I think the new process is convenient and works well.” Darryll Cleaves, Navy VOLED Call Management System manager, tracks and collects data from the Navy College Program systems and has noted significant improvements since the shift to virtual service delivery. “Metrics such as average chat wait time, average speed to answer, and call abandonment rates have improved to better than industry standards,” Cleaves said. “Last month’s abandon rate was 1.5 percent on a goal of five percent; we were better than our goal for the entire

quarter.” According to Cleaves, the top-five most popular features of the Navy College Virtual Education Center (NCVEC) and NCP website are Chat, E-Help Tickets, VOLED Appointment Scheduler, WebTA Automation and the My Navy Portal Self Scheduler. Capt. Kertreck Brooks, commanding officer of the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center, the parent command of Navy VOLED, said being recognized for outstanding customer service is a great testament to the hard work of his staff. “I’m extremely proud of our global VOLED team and their continued efforts in striving to achieve the Chief of Naval

Personnel’s vision of being a responsive team in providing unparalleled service to our Sailors,” Brooks said.

Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice

of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victims to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chainof-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/ her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. • To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2.
