‘HurrEx’ May 5-15 NASP hurricane readiness exercise will test base’s preparations, abilities From NASP Emergency Management

NAS Pensacola will be participating in a hurricane readiness exercise, “HurrEx/Citadel Gale 2014” May 5-15. This is largely a communications drill to exercise the base’s ability to respond and test scenarios from Navy Region Southeast, installation-to-installation response. NASP Emergency Manager Burt Fenters is looking forward to the exercise. “We’re at the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Ivan,” Fenters said. “Looking back 30 years through the archives, past history shows this installation has somewhat of a pattern with tropical systems. 1985 Hurricane

Elena passed just off-shore with an estimated 7-foot storm surge locally; 1995 Hurricanes Erin and Opal impacted the installation; (in) 2004 we had Ivan; 2005 Dennis was a close call. Not asking for trouble but we’re (in the window).” Fenters advises caution as far as complacency goes when it comes to storms. “This year’s prediction is for a below average season. People construe that with a low threat or quiet season. Here’s something to ponder; 1992 was a below average season; there were only six named storms, four of which were hurricanes, and only one major hurricane; its name was Andrew. Try telling the residents in Homestead, Fla., that 1992 was a quiet season.”

NATTC Sailors ‘Light up the Night’ By Lt. Jonathan Bacon NATTC Public Affairs

Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) organized a “Light up the Night” event April 25. Supporting the Navywide Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAM), more than 2,670 NATTC students attended “Light up the Night,” which started at 5 a.m. First, a

group of NATTC CSADD students stood on the grass between NATTC’s Chevalier Hall and a barracks forming the shape of a large ribbon, and held teal cups containing candles. A teal ribbon is the symbol for Sexual Assault Awareness. Then students attending the event filled in the area around the CSADD students. Lillie Johnson, the Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) lead Sexual Assault Re-

sponse Coordinator (SARC) was the guest speaker for the early morning event. Additionally, NATTC CSADD shared three of their own locally-produced sexual assault awareness videos to educate those in attendance. “Light up the Night” events are conducted to spread awareness, in this case among the NATTC student and staff populations, about prevalence of sexual assault and to

Army’s ‘Best Warrior’: Competing on the Coast Story, photos by Master Sgt. Dianna Anderson 350th CACOM UPAR NCOIC

JOINT EXPEDITIONARY BASE LITTLE CREEK-FORT STORY, Va.– Mental and physical toughness and endurance were put to the test as 29 Soldiers competed in the Best Warrior Competition (BWC) held jointly by two Civil Affairs Commands (CACOM) from March 23-27. Working closely together, the 350th CACOM based in Pensacola, and the 353rd CACOM based in Staten Island, N.Y., convened on the coast of Virginia to present a challenging five-day schedule of events for the competitors. The Soldiers started with a written essay on Army values followed early the next morning by the Army Physical Fitness

Test. Still exhausted by the short night, Soldiers had just enough time to eat breakfast, grab their rucksacks and hit the urban orienteering course. They were given a map of the area and 15 points to find while maneuvering their way along the six-mile course. From there, the competitors moved immediately to the next event, Warrior Training Tasks, where they were tested on their basic warrior skills. This event tested their ability to shoot a back azimuth, send a situational report, evaluate a casualty, identify a terrain feature, and request a nine-line medical evacuation. This was followed by the first of two mystery events, where competitors were required put on their protective masks, carry a heavy sandbag 50 meters and back, and then perform a functions test on an M-16 rifle. The next mystery event

march. The road march took them through the roads of the base ending with an 800-meter path across the beach, where the competitors faced cold and sandy winds blowing off the Atlantic Ocean. Spc. Matthew Mangano of the 411th Civil Affairs Battalion, 353rd CACOM, who placed first in the road march, also plays football and lacrosse as a student at Framingham State University in Massachusetts. He said that he trained for the road march by running while wearing a weighted jacket. “The BWC was mentally and physically challenging and there were so many good competitors. It was definitely an awesome experience and it was great meeting all of the

other competitors,” he said. The competition culminated in an appearance before the board of sergeants major, where the Soldiers were grilled on their military knowledge. Although the competition was fierce, the Soldiers developed a strong sense of camaraderie for each other. Sgt. Sara Matos, of the 321st Civil Affairs Brigade located in San Antonio, 350th CACOM, said, “I’m not very competitive but I like to challenge myself. It’s good to step out of your comfort zone so you can progress. It was what I hoped for and more. Although we were competing, we developed a fellowship.” Each Soldier had a sponsor from their unit to

help prepare them for the competition and give them guidance and encouragement throughout the events. Spc. Thomas Sears and his sponsor, Staff Sgt. Monique Cain, both with the 350th CACOM, agreed that it was a learning experience for both of them and will help prepare Sears for the competition next year. The winners were announced at the banquet held in honor of the competitors. Spc. Shad A. Barrows, 413th Civil Affairs Battalion located in Lubbock, Texas, and Staff Sgt. Josue Toledano, 410th Civil Affairs Battalion located in El Paso, Texas, both won the competition for the 350th CACOM. Spc. Mathew Mangano, 411th Civil Affairs Battalion based in Danbury, Conn., and Sgt. Toan Pham, 415th Civil Affairs Battalion based in Kalamazoo, Mich., both won the competition for the 353rd CACOM. Command Sgt. Maj. Timothy E. Gray, command sergeant major of the 350th CACOM, said, “Once again this year the 350th and 353rd CACOMs integrated seamlessly to put on a world class event. The opportunity for our Soldiers to compete against each other is further enhanced by competing against their fellow Soldiers of a sister CACOM. I continue to be amazed at the spirit of the Soldiers of today’s Army and believe our future is in good hands.”

was the “box-o-guns” task, where parts from two weapons, the M-9 pistol and M-16 rifle, were mixed together in a box. Soldiers were then timed on their ability to sort out and re-assemble the weapons. Tuesday began with the obstacle course consisting of several physically demanding obstacles testing the Soldiers’ skills in strength, agility and endurance by climbing, lowcrawling, and running. After maneuvering the grueling course in unseasonably cold, bitter winds, competitors moved on to compete in combatives. Soldiers were outside the next morning putting on the required 40-pound rucksack and getting ready to compete in the road

attempt to prevent it,” said Johnson. “The candles were in honor of the victims of sexual assault, and balloons were used as a symbolic reminder of how important it is to release the pain and grief caused by sexual assault in order to find healing, resolution and a new beginning.” AA Ashlee White, a student at NATTC, said that Johnson’s personal account of her daughter’s tragic death was very moving and grabbed the attention of the group at the event. “I also felt that the effect of the candles representing the victims was unique,” said White. “I had not seen that before and found it thought provoking.” One of the organizers of the event, AO2 Alexanna Williams, thought the event was well worth the time spent by staff and students. “The turnout for this year’s Light up the Night was amazing,” said Williams. “I feel the message really got across to the students this year. Everyone showed extreme interest and confidence in stopping sexual assault, and the students gained awareness from this event to look out for fellow shipmates and themselves.” For more information about Naval Air Technical Training Center, visit their web site at https://www.netc.navy.mil/centers/cnatt/nattc/Default.aspx

COOP location,” said David Schisler, director of operations and infrastructure for NETPDTC. “The outages will be fairly short as systems transfer and remain active in Great Lakes until they return operations to Saufley Data Center two weeks later.” According to the Naval Education and Training Command’s (NETC) Chief Information Officer (CIO) Robyn Baker, the COOP testing is vital for the training enterprise to function as a result of outside interruptions. “The data center services NETC training around the world and the annual tests verify that the systems will function properly at the COOP location in the event of a hurricane, disaster, or other emergency,” said Baker. “We’ve scheduled the transfers on weekends to minimize the impact to our customers.” Applications which will be unavailable on May 3 and 18 include: • Navy E-Learning (NeL/ETMDS) • Fund Administration and Standardized Document Automation (FASTDATA) • Corporate enterprise Training Activity Resource System (CeTARS) For more information about the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center, visit the NETPDTC website at: https://www. netc.navy.mil/netc/netpdtc/.

Legal assistance available to crime victims By LN2(SW) Kevin P. Van Gorder Region Legal Service Offices

As a victim of a crime, one should not fear retaliation, be forced to remain silent, or feel removed from the legal process. Oftentimes, victims and witnesses of crimes suffer emotionally, physically, and socially. The goal of the Department of Defense is to mitigate, if not eliminate, the hardships that victims and witnesses experience. As part of this effort, Region Legal Service Offices (RLSOs) offer legal assistance to

those who have been adversely affected by crime. Legal assistance services cover civil legal matters including, but not limited to, domestic disputes, child custody and support obligations, landlord-tenant issues, identity theft and rights under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. Additionally, RLSO legal assistance staff offer counseling to ensure victims and witnesses are aware of other rights and services available. Depending on the situation, these rights may include the right to be notified of court pro-

ceedings and to be present at most public hearings, the right to expedited transfer, the right to transitional compensation, and most importantly, the right to be treated with dignity and respect. If the assistance a victim or witness desires is best provided by a different resource, the RLSO will make referrals to a Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) victim advocate, Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) agent, Family Advocacy Program advisor, Victim Legal Counsel (VLC) or a Navy-Marine Corps Relief

Society (NMCRS) representative. RLSOs worldwide offer a range of support services to victims and witnesses as they navigate the legal process. If you have been victimized or have been a witness to a crime and have questions about your rights or assistance available, consult with your local legal assistance office. The NAS Pensacola Region Legal Service Office (RLSO) Southeast, Detatchment Pensacola, is at 121 Cuddahy St., Bldg. 680, Suite B, or call 452-3733 or 4523734.

Adoption can be complicated for military families By Lt. Doug Ottenwess Region Legal Service Offices, Southeast, Kings Bay, Ga.

Adoption can be a very exciting process for many military families. This life-altering process, though, is also one that can be very challenging, costly, and time consuming for many military families. Fortunately, installation Region Legal Service Offices (RLSOs) and the Department of Defense offer a wide range of legal advice and cost saving measures that can make the process much easier for service men and women. For military members seeking assistance with adoptions,

How to submit a commentary

the most common type is the stepparent adoption, in which one spouse legally adopts the child of the other spouse from a previous relationship. To complete a stepparent adoption, a court must terminate the parental rights of the other biological parent. In cases where the adoption is not contested, the biological parent may voluntarily waive parental rights. Sometimes, however, there are situations in which the whereabouts of the other parent may not be known, or perhaps that parent is not willing to voluntarily relinquish his or her parental rights. In these circumstances, there are very specific, and sometimes lengthy,

steps which may need to be taken in order to terminate the parental rights of the other parent. Consult a local RLSO representative regarding any questions on terminating parental rights. One big burden for many military families seeking to complete an adoption is cost. Between court costs, attorney fees, and other incidental expenses, the financial burden of completing an adoption can be overwhelming. Most states require that individuals seeking adoptions have an attorney to represent them. To help alleviate many of these costs, the Department of Defense offers an adoption reimbursement

program that provides up to $2,000 of expenses per child, not to exceed $5,000 per year. More information about this program can be found on the DFAS website or in DoD Instruction 1341.9. It is important to note that reimbursement will not occur until the adoption process is complete. Local RLSO offices can provide guidance in preparing the reimbursement paperwork. Additionally, while RLSO attorneys cannot represent military members and their families in adoption cases, RLSOs have resources available to interested families that can put them in touch with local family law attorneys, many of whom

offer military discounts. For individuals considering adoption, it is very important to have a complete understanding as to what obligations attach once the adoption is final. RLSO attorneys can answer questions regarding parental rights and responsibilities that prospective adoptive parents will have once the process is complete. It is highly encouraged to sit down with an attorney and go over these questions before commencing the adoption process.

DoD reports progress on suicide prevention By Jim Garamone American Forces Press Service

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – Suicide is a serious problem at all levels of the U.S. military.

And now the department has a base against which programs intended to prevent it can be measured. In 2012, there were a total of 319 suicides among active-duty personnel and 203 among those in the reserve components. Suicide causes immeasurable pain, suffering, and loss to individuals, families, survivors, military formations and military communities, said Army Lt. Gen. Michael Linnington, military deputy at the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness. Linnington spoke in advance of the Department of Defense Suicide Event Report. The 2012 suicide rate (expressed as a number per 100,000 service members) for the active component was 22.7. For the reserve components it was 24.2. Across the services in 2012, the Army had 155 Soldiers commit suicide. A total of 57 airmen and 59 sailors committed suicide, with 47 Marines taking their lives. A total of 841 service members had one or more attempted suicides in 2012. The department does have preliminary readouts of suicide data for 2013, Linnington said. In 2013, the active component rate has come down about 18 percent. The reserve rates rose slightly, he said.

“With an 18 percent drop in 2013, something is going right,” the general said. “One suicide is always too many, but we have to focus our efforts now where we think they are most needed.” And that effort and money must go into programs that promote wellness and resilience, especially in those community based programs that reach out to the reserve component personnel, said Jacqueline Garrick, the director for the Defense Suicide Prevention Office. The report is important, she said, because it gives officials data to back up decisions. “It allows us visibility on what the issues and problems are so we can look at our programs and see if we are matching up, and targeting the issues that we really need to target, specific to things that we know could help facilitate suicide prevention,” Garrick said. Linnington said the data contained in the report ensures the department is not duplicating some efforts and leaving gaps in other areas. Up through 2011, the department only captured suicide data on active-duty numbers. This meant active-duty component personnel and reservists serving on active duty. Yet, doing that only covered about 10 percent of the reserve

components. Active-duty personnel get treatment at camps, forts, bases and stations versus reservists who need the community based programs. “We weren’t gathering information on all reservists and, we didn’t have good data on what was going on in the communities where these reservists live, work, play and get treatment,” Linnington said. The time is right to deal with this issue, Linnington and Garrick said. Congress has fully funded suicide prevention programs the department needs. The Defense Department is working closely with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Health and Human Services on this issue. “All the departments are joining forces so we’re tackling this problem with a unified front,” she said. Suicide prevention requires

committed leadership, Linnington said. “Leaders at all levels need to take this on head on,” he said. “Leaders are responsible for creating climates of dignity and respect in their units; cohesive environments where folks get help from each other when it’s needed, reducing the barriers to reducing the barriers to care.” This goes to the “heart of what it means to be a military professional: Taking care of subordinates, and building and maintaining those bonds of trust between each other is definitely part of the solution,” he said. He believes the message is beginning to permeate through the force. Service members “don’t listen when it’s a large groups listening to a lecture,” he said. “But when you get them in small groups, and talk about what it means to take care of each other, it works. They understand the need to get in-

volved when they need to get involved. We need to put this personally to them: What would they do if they see their battle buddies struggling with issues – emotional, behavior, family, financial? “When you get to the lower levels, and its soldier helping soldier,” he said, “that’s when you know you’re making progress.” Suicide happens in the civilian community as well, Garrick said, noting it is the 10th-leading cause of death among Americans. “People come into the military with issues and problems and leave the military with issues and problems,” she said. “We know there will be some overlaps in trends with the civilian population." DoD partners with Health and Human Services and the VA on a military crisis line so service members, veterans and their families to get the help they need, Garrick said. “What one person considers a crisis may not be what another one considers a crisis,” she said. “Just ask for the help, make the phone call, work with a professional that can help you get the resources and do the follow-up and help resolve whatever is going on.” The Military Crisis Line provides confidential help and can be reached at 1 (800) 273-8255. People can chat online at www.MilitaryCrisisLine.net or send a text to 838255. “Suicide is a very complex issue with complex set of solutions and it really requires our best efforts from team leaders to four-stars,” Linnington said.

F

ollowing 30 years of dedicated service to the United States Navy, CW04 Daniel J. Buechler retired April 4 at National Naval Aviation Museum onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. In front of his family, friends and shipmates, Buechler embarked on the next chapter of his life.

CWO4 Daniel Buechler walks through the sideboys following his retirement ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum April 4.

The United States Navy has held retirement ceremonies since the 1700s. This tradition has been a way to honor and recognize the many years of service and accomplishments of the Sailor. This retirement tradition continues today, and with Buechler, recognized a career that began May, 1 1984. Buechler’s enlisted career began on the USS Forrestal, CV 59. While there, Buechler rose to the rank of petty officer sec-

ond class. From there, Buechler went to Naval Air Station Bermuda. While at his next command, Buechler became a petty officer first class while working as quality assurance representative for VP-45 – the “Black Birds” – stationed at NAS Key West. Buechler would then serve onboard the USS John F. Kennedy, CV 67, and achieved the rank of chief petty officer. Following this tour, Buechler arrived at the

Naval Air Technical Training Center Pensacola as the Aviation Ordnance Course supervisor. Even early in Buechler’s career, people noticed his take-charge attitude and leadership ability. “I was just getting to my first ship, the USS Forrestal, when I met Buechler,” event guest speaker NASP CMDCM Jeff Grosso recalled. “I was looking at getting slated into a job when he grabbed me, and said come with me, you

are going to work as an aviation ordnanceman.” Buechler’s superb leadership and dedication to service was recognized when he returned to the USS John F. Kennedy for a second tour in October. 2001. While there, Buechler completed the tour as the G-1 Division leading chief petty officer, was promoted to senior chief petty officer and received his commission. Grosso went on to state “It had been over a decade since Buechler and I had met up since first meeting on the Forrestal, but his natural leading presence was still there. In addition, you know you have a great friend when you can pick up as if nothing has changed after so long. ” Buechler’s first tour following his commission was with the “Blue Wolves,” VS-35, stationed in San Diego, Calif., work-

ing as the weapons officer. From California, Buechler proceeded to NAS Brunswick, Maine, where he served as weapons officer for VP-26, the “Tridents.” During that tour, Buechler deployed twice and picked up chief warrant officer three. He then found himself at NAS Pensacola as an aviation ordnance training officer. After transferring from Pensacola to Jacksonville, Fla., Buechler worked with VP-10, the “Red Lancers,” as the weapons officer. Buechler completed two deployments overseas and picked up chief warrant officer four during this time. Buechler’s final duty station was at the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Detachment in Milton. While there, Buechler worked as the instructor and course supervisor, providing more than 1,500 hours of naval avia-

tion ordnance officer career progression levels (one, two and three) of instruction to 268 naval and Marine Corps officers. Buechler also earned his master training specialist designation. Instructor Lt. Cmdr. David Fowler discussed the many achievements of Buechler and presented him with a Navy Commendation Medal, presidential letters of appreciation and a shadow box. In addition to Buechler’s awards, his wife, Rebecca, his daughter, Ashley, and his three sons, Skylar, Ashton, and Greyson received certificates of appreciation. “Much of what we do in the Navy is demanding,” Fowler said, “it takes a strong individual to dedicate 30 years of service, and an even stronger family to help support the service member through it.”

Child Support Military Divorce Criminal Defense DUI

Military Divorce Active Duty or Retired

We are located near Corry Station and NAS Pensacola. As a result, for 30 years we have handled problems that are unique to active duty and retired military service members. We are able to handle most issues where Florida has jurisdiction, which may include Initial Divorce proceedings, Spousal Support, Child Support, Modification, Visitation or Custody issues Contempt, E-mail or Teleconferencing. In cases of deployment, regarding court appearances, many occasions relevant to these issues (pursuant to the other sides agreement when necessary), you can testify by telephone and never have to physically be in Florida for the proceeding. Set forth below are a few of the issues that you may question regarding, whether you are active

duty, retired or the spouse of active duty or retire military. Child Support In calculating Child Support, in addition to your regular or retirement pay, the following pay is included: 1. Housing Allowance 2. Sea or Flight Pay 3. Retirement Pay 4. Social Security 5. V.A. Benefits (Yes, despite what others have told you, VA pay is included in child support calculations. Some of you will argue this point. Make an appointment and I will show you why it is included). You will still be governed by the child support requirements under the general Divorce/Child Support for the state of Florida. FYI: Based on the child support formula, it is almost always cheaper, if possible, to use day care.

E-mail: sbowdenlaw@gmail.com For more information about Steven Bowden’s areas of practice, go to http:// pensacola-lawyer.com

A major problem which can affect both the payor and recipient of child support is when the support should begin. If you are involved in the initial Divorce proceeding the payor’s obligation begins, at the minimum, when the divorce is filed and/or you no longer live together with the child/children. The separation date may predate the filing of the divorce petition. You need an attorney’s advice to ascertain your obligation. If you wait until the final hearing, you may have to pay ongoing child support plus a court ordered amount each month to satisfy an arrearage plus interest. If you are active duty military, the JAG manual (navy page) will specify what you must pay to continue to support your family until further court order. A temporary hearing could reduce the amount of child support that you have been direct to may pay military orders or rules. If you are the spouse of an active duty military member, reservist or retiree, see Spouse/Military

or call for an appointment regarding the questions you may have. Retirement Alimony/Spousal Support In Florida, military retirement funds are an asset which is treated differently than other income related to Alimony/Spousal Support. The spouse of retired military personnel receives a pro rata share of the retirement funds. If the spouse remarries, the awarded share is still paid. If the military retiree dies, and an SBP is elected, it is still paid. You must make sure your lawyer uses the correct formula in order to establish the amount owed. DFAS has particular guidelines that must be met in order to accomplish the correct payment of spousal support.

Navy salutes Asian American and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month NAS Pensacola Asian-Pacific Island Heritage Ceremony 10 a.m. May 20 NASC Auditorium (Bldg. 633) • Everyone welcome http://asianpacificheritage.gov/about.html

M

ay is Asian American and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month – a celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States. A rather broad term, Asian-Pacific encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway

Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island). Like most commemorative months, Asian American and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month originated in a congressional bill. In June 1977, Reps. Frank Horton of New York and Norman Y. Mineta of California introduced a House resolution that called upon the

president to proclaim the first 10 days of May as Asian-Pacific Heritage Week. The following month, Sens. Daniel Inouye and Spark Matsunaga introduced a similar bill in the Senate. Both were passed. On Oct. 5, 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed a Joint Resolution designating the annual celebration. Twelve years later, President George H.W. Bush signed an extension mak-

ing the weeklong celebration into a monthlong celebration. In 1992, the official designation of May as Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month was signed into law. The month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the trans- continental railroad May

WASHINGTON (NNS) – The Navy joins the nation in celebrating the contributions of generations of patriots during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month throughout May. Asians and Pacific Islanders of various nationalities and ancestry have been serving in our Navy since the early 19th century. Asians and Pacific Islanders have continued to be at the forefront as leaders in every aspect of American life, including Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, Hawaii’s first Congressman and the first Japanese American to serve in Congress. Having enlisted in the U.S. Army at age 17 and serving during World War II, Inouye was a great champion of all the armed forces throughout his career. He received the Medal of Honor for his extraordinary heroism and indomitable leadership during an engagement in World War II. On Dec. 17, 2012, Inouye passed away, leaving behind a noted legacy of leadership and a drive to enhance inclusion in the armed forces and across the country.

In 2013, Sailors of Asian and Pacific Islander heritage comprised 6.5 percent of the active-duty naval force. More than 20,000 active-duty Sailors, 4,000 reservists and 18,900 Navy civilian employees identify as Asian American or Pacific Islander, including 10 flag officers, nine members of the Senior Executive Service (SES) and 176 master chief petty officers. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders encompass more than 50 ethnic and language groups, representing a vast array of cultures, nationalities, and historical roots. Directed by Congress in 1978 and established by presidential proclamation in 1979, Asian Pacific American Heritage Week was first observed the week of May 4, 1979. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush expanded the observance to encompass the entire month, and in 1992, Congress passed a law permanently designating May as Asian American and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month.
