NHP Retiree Town Hall Meeting May 15 ... Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) is holding a Retiree Town Hall Meeting

May 15, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the hospital’s Command Theater, third floor, Rm. 3051. The focus of this town hall will be the transition of the administrative oversight of NHP to the Defense Health Agency that will occur this year. For patients, this transition will have little or no immediate effect on your experience – your facility, physicians and coverage will remain the same and you will continue to receive the same exceptional level of care and service you deserve from NHP. The town hall is a great opportunity to ask questions or provide feedback to us on the care you receive. If you have any questions, contact the Public Affairs Officer at 505-6796.

NASP galley wins five-star accreditation From staff reports

NAS Pensacola Food Services has been awarded the five-star accreditation for food service excellence. The five-star accreditation is awarded annually to the highest-performing food service operations within the region. The award is a culmination of a three-part inspection process in which all Commander Navy Installations Command (CNIC) dining facilities are evaluated. To earn this award, galleys must demonstrate superior management of critical operational elements, to include safety, sanitation, inventory management, financial accountability, customer satisfaction and facility management.

The award is designed to improve food services by encouraging competition among food service operations. The award is a pre-requisite for further competition towards the Captain Edward F. Ney Award. Along with winning the Ney award in 2010, the NAS Pensacola Food Service operation boasts a 17-year streak of Five-Star Excellence Awards.

Getting a grip – at Naval Hospital Pensacola Story, photo by PO1 Brannon Deugan Naval Hospital Pensacola

The Occupational and Physical Therapy Department at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) improves patient’s fine motor skills after an injury, an illness or a disability. Occupational therapy and physical therapy are two specialties that often work side-by-side in patient care. The two are separated at NHP by their focus on body parts with occupational therapy focusing on the upper extremities. “I think a lot of times occupational therapy and physical therapy get thrown into the same bucket, but there is a huge difference,” Lt. Sara Brubaker, occupational and physical therapy department head at NHP said. “Specifically (at NHP), the occupational therapist focuses on the shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist.” April was Occupational Therapy Month and occupational therapists enable patients of all ages to live life to the fullest by promoting health and maintaining the readiness of the active duty patients. “Occupational therapy is celebrated annually in the month of April as a remembrance of our early beginnings into practice, our contributions to healthcare and our support of patients,” Lt. Charles

Lt. Charles Knight, occupational therapist at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP), works with a patient to improve fine motor skills in his hand at NHP, April 15. Occupational therapy is a science and evidence-based profession that utilizes a holistic approach to help patients increase functional independence in daily life while preventing or minimizing disability through the therapeutic use of everyday activities.

Knight, occupational therapist at Naval Hospital Pensacola said. Occupational therapy is a science and evidence-based profession that utilizes a holistic approach to help patients increase functional independence in daily life while preventing or minimizing disability through the therapeutic use of everyday activities.

“Occupational therapists are known for their use of occupation as a modality,” Knight, from Jeffersonville, Ind. said. “For example, if a patient is having difficulty putting on a shirt after having shoulder surgery, we would actually do some [specific] exercises and go through the particular activity of daily living the patient is struggling to complete.”

Daily tasks at work or even at home can cause patients with injuries to experience difficulties completing even minor duties, which could potentially risk a service member’s readiness. However, the holistic approach of occupational therapy formulates a plan of action to simulate those fine motor skills needed. According to Knight, the occupational therapy clinic experiences a 95 percent return to duty for their patients, which allows those individuals to be mission ready. “There are a lot of things that go into occupational therapy,” Brubaker, from Comer, Ga. said. “The (tasks) of daily living that we take for granted, like being able to tie your shoe again. Occupational Therapists are able to identify concerns as well as the best plan of action to correct the issue.” Occupational therapists address injuries not only from a physical aspect but also on a cognitive level in order to understand if the fine motor skill deficiency is an orthopedic or a neurologic issue. “We are very good at (talking with) patients,” Knight said. “We look at the three main areas of mental, physical and psychosocial health when someone has sustained an injury to ensure we are treating the patient with the appropriate care required.” Survey from page 1 • The survey for the approximately 63,000 governmentoperated unaccompanied housing units around the world runs through June 20. As of April 30, the survey has a 6.4 percent response rate. The resident satisfaction surveys are designed to accurately identify the current state of Navy housing, so that we can make informed decisions. In addition to identifying immediate health or safety concerns, the Navy is looking at larger trends, such as reoccurring issues, the level of customer service and government oversight. Surveys are being conducted by an independent third party, CEL & Associates, and take about 10 minutes to complete. Participants will remain anonymous unless they choose to identify themselves. For those living in PPV housing, surveys are electronic. Residents who have not received the survey are encouraged to email NavyPPVHousingSurvey@ celassociates.com and include name and home address. For all other residents who have not received the survey or need more information, they are encouraged to contact their housing manager, building manager or Navy Housing Service Center.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer – Capt. Timothy Kinsella

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 biplane 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.

Confessions of a TV junkie By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

(In the basement of a dingy community center, a florescent light buzzes over a dozen or so people seated in a circle of metal folding chairs. Some nibble anxiously at store-bought sandwich cookies, while others sit in nervous silence. There is a screeching of chair legs against linoleum, as one bleary-eyed woman stands with a trembling Styrofoam coffee cup to speak.) Hello, (clears throat) my name is Lisa ... and I, ... I am a Binge Watcher. It’s been one week since my last television fix, and I’m here to share my story. Believe it or not, there was a time when I didn’t even know what Binge Watching was. In fact, while our Navy family was stationed in Germany, we felt lucky that Armed Forces Network aired day-old episodes of “Survivor” and “American Idol.” The rest of the time, we entertained ourselves with middle-of-the-night live football broadcasts, quirky BBC cooking shows, and strange AFN public ser-

vice announcements. But when we moved back to the States, my husband and I discovered the joys of Digital Video Recording. Initially, our television use was purely recreational. We were mere “social watchers,” catching a recorded program here and there, and streaming a movie over the weekend. Little did we know, we were perched on the slippery slope of instant gratification. Eventually, we needed more and more episodes to be entertained. Our digitally savvy kids introduced my husband and I to the allure of streaming services such as On Demand, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. How intoxicating it was to take a double hit of “The Bachelor” and chase it with “Deadliest Catch” all in one evening! Soon, we were hooked, and there was no going back. Before we knew it, we were spending perfectly sunny weekends holed up in the family room of our base house watching episode after episode of random television shows. We told everyone that we were “just

catching up on ‘Modern Family’” or that we were “simply wondering what all the hubbub was about ‘Downton Abbey.’” Ironically, it was the show “Breaking Bad” that nudged us into the deep dark abyss. We’d been jonesing to see the AMC series for a while, and when we found out that the first 54 episodes were

On Demand for a limited time leading up to the final season, we knew we had just scored. During that epic threeweek “Breaking Bad” bender, we finally hit rock bottom. Our family room looked like the scene of a rave party, strewn with soda cans, popcorn, Chinese take-out boxes, and melting quarts of half-eaten ice cream. Our pupils were permanently dilated as we stared, transfixed, into the psychedelic LCD screen, our cold, clammy fingers gripping the smudged remotes. We were so strung out after that binge, we quit cold turkey for a while, satisfying our cravings with short doses of “House Hunters” and “Seinfeld” reruns in hopes that we’d avoid the painful withdrawal symptoms of rapid detox. But our self-discipline soon crumbled when we found shows like “House of Cards,” “Better Call Saul,” “Stranger Things,” “Ozark,” “You,” and “Rectify.” After every bender, we’d dry out all over again and pledge to stay clean.

However, lately, ads keep popping up for spring premiers of “Our Planet,” “Wife Swap,” and “The Handmaid’s Tale.” The eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones,” which premiered April 14, and we still haven’t finished watching “Poldark” and “Homecoming” ... What’s a TV junkie to do? Binge watch, of course! I must confess that spring premiere season has triggered my recent relapse. Although I’m not sure there’s a 12-step recovery program for binge watching, I’m absolutely certain I’ll gain 12 pounds if I don’t get up off the couch and stop watching so much TV. So, mark my words: I’m quitting binge watching for good. This time, I’m 100 percent serious. No more lounging in sweatpants on Sunday afternoons pressing “play” hour after hour. Spring has sprung, and I’ll be spending all my time in the great outdoors. I swear, I’m going to do it, and I mean it. And I’ll start just as soon as the “Game of Thrones” final season is over.

The Navy Good Conduct Medal turns 150 From https://www.history.navy.mil

T

Good Conduct Badge was supposed to help incentivize reenlistment of already trained Sailors and, as such, it passed only to men after their second period of service. The Good Conduct Badge (Medal after 1896) was one in a series of attempts since before the Civil War to ease the shortage of trained seamen willing to re-enlist in the Navy. By 1855, a Sailor could expect a modest raise and what amounted to a paid vacation – up to four months’ free wages – between enlistments. Then in 1865 the Navy authorized the Honorable Discharge Badge, a 2.5-inch patch in the shape of a foul anchor, to be sewn onto the sleeve and appended with a half-inch star for every additional honorBefore the Good Conduct able discharge over the course Badge, the Navy’s only medal of a career. This practice helped had been the Medal of Honor, distinguish the strong from the a product of the Civil War.

The tion, the Maltese-cross-shaped medal for “fidelity, zeal, (and) obedience,” provided the Sailor had re-enlisted and completed his second cruise. More meaningful than the medal, however, would have been the monetary reward that came in conjunction with reenlistment. To claim it, a Sailor had to show his Good Conduct Badge and honorable discharge papers. (Twenty years of good conduct, moreover, got him a pension in some cases and, in other cases, admission to a naval hospital or home.)

he Navy’s first Good Conduct Medal – called the Good Conduct Badge – looked nothing like today’s. First authorized April 26, 1869, for “obedience, sobriety and cleanliness” as well as proficiency in “gunnery and seamanship,” the decoration came in the shape of a Maltese cross of nickel, the center of which was rounded out by a medallion. In the 1880s, the Navy had the medal redesigned in the form of a bronze planchet that has stayed more or less the same for the last 135 years. But whereas the medal itself changed little after 1884, the criteria for receiving it shifted in response to a process of modernization underway since the end of the nineteenth century. Manning the postbellum Navy: The Good Conduct Medal reflects the later 19thcentury approach to Navy enlistment, quite different from today’s. In the post-Civil War period, when a man enlisted, his enlistment entailed a single cruise on a single ship. Returning to port for an extended period meant discharging all of the enlisted men, some of whom – on recommendation of the commanding officer – might be eligible to reenlist for a cruise at a later date. Bereft of their crew upon return to port, Navy commanding officers, who were often responsible for recruiting their own Sailors, now had to scramble to find trained seamen willing to forgo opportunities offered by the merchant marine, which often promised better pay, better living conditions and better treatment. Although the Panic of 1873 and the subsequent “Great Depression” of the 1870s to the 1880s helped reduce labor-market competition, better opportunities on civilian vessels persisted. For the Navy, quality Sailors were hard to come by. Alcoholism, criminality, insubordination and desertion were rampant. It is likely that in the two decades after the Civil War, a full one-eighth of the U.S. Navy personnel deserted every year. What could officers do to retain talent and improve the pool? The Good Conduct decoration was among the solutions.

Good Conduct Medal Type I, Maltese cross, nickel, of the type issued between 1870 and 1884. Obverse: “FIDELITY – ZEAL – OBEDIENCE” in a circle with “U.S.N.” in the center. The first recipients were Sailors returning from a European cruise aboard sloop-of-war Iroquois (NHHC 1971-586-B/ Obverse).

The Spanish-American War in 1898 transformed the Navy’s fitful, uneven process of modernization into a robust and overarching one. In the midst of the conflict, a Congressional committee’s report of May 1898 recommended sweeping changes, including the institution of fixed-term enlistments as a way to provide continuity of personnel for these most modern, complex, steam-powered ships of the line. The changes became law with the Naval Personnel Act of 1899. A few years later, in the spirit of incentivizing good conduct and reenlistment, the Navy further increased annual pay for holders of a Good Conduct Medal. The bonus continued to increase, as did standard pay for enlisted men – another incentive to staying with the Navy. As the twentieth century progressed, the criteria for receiving the Good Conduct Medal ultimately landed on a path of steady democratization: The requirements of a past honorable discharge and reenlistment within three months fell away, and other criteria began to take their place. The new Navy: In the 20th century, the Good Conduct Medal’s criteria came to prioritize proficiency in rating. (New ratings proliferated with the transition to steam power.) By 1914, marks in rating – on the

scale of one to five – were part of the equation. To earn the Good Conduct Medal, a junior Sailor needed a minimum average of four in his area of proficiency, while a petty officer needed 4.5. (Both required 4.5s in sobriety and obedience.) Soon after, the threshold came down to threes and eventually twos, ensuring that the majority of reenlisting Sailors would receive the Good Conduct Medal almost as a matter of course after World War I.25 And after the next World War, a well-behaved, hardworking Sailor could expect to receive the Good Conduct Medal in his first period of enlistment and after a single term of three years. His or her counterpart of the 1890s would have needed an honorable discharge, a reenlistment, and eight years of service before seeing the same medal. There were now better ways than a medal to retain skilled labor, and these had to do not only with compensation and benefits, which had steadily increased since the nineteenth century, but also with the Navy’s 20th-century commitment to training its recruits and with the cultural shift in how people saw Navy service – as a career, not a last resort, as had often been the case in the 19th century. Finally, the transformation of life aboard ships did more than any medal could do to make the Sailor’s life more attractive. As historian Frederick Harrod observes, the great vessels of the new Navy were now spacious and advanced enough for unprecedented amenities: bunks (instead of hammocks), clean water, plumbing, barbershops, libraries, recreation rooms, laundries, electric lighting, forced-air ventilation, dishwashing machines and refrigeration. As early as 1906, the Maine-class battleship Missouri (Battleship No. 11) even had her own electric ice-cream maker. Sea service to the United States was no longer the existential trial it must have been in the nineteenth century. The Navy of 1869 – the Navy that had established the Good Conduct Badge – faced issues of morale, discipline and safety that the modern Navy does not know. In our age, the Good Conduct Medal serves a different purpose: It is a rite of passage and an honor, to be sure, but its historical role as part of a reenlistment strategy has gone the way of canvas topsails and gilded figureheads. – Adam Bisno, Ph.D., NHHC Communication and Outreach Division, April 2019

Marine Corps plans to replace LAV with new, ‘transformational’ ARV By Matt Gonzales MCSC Office of Public Affairs and Communication, Marine Corps Systems Command MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. – The Marine Corps plans to begin replacing its legacy Light Armored Vehicle with modern Armored Reconnaissance Vehicle late in the next decade. The ARV will be highly mobile, networked, transportable, protected and lethal. The capability will provide, sensors, communication systems and lethality options to overmatch threats that have historically been addressed with more heavily armored systems. “The ARV will be an advanced combat vehicle system, capable of fighting for information that balances competing capability demands to sense, shoot, move, communicate and remain transportable as part of the naval expeditionary force,” John “Steve” Myers, program manager for MCSC’s LAV portfolio, said. Since the 1980s, the LAV has supported Marine Air-Ground Task Force missions on the battlefield. While the LAV remains operationally effective, the life cycle of this system is set to expire in the mid-2030s. The Corps aims to replace the vehicle before then. Marine Corps Systems Command has been tasked with replacing the vehicle with a nextgeneration, more capable ground

Preliminary planning, successful resourcing in the program objectives memorandum and the creation of an Office of Naval Research science and technology program have set the conditions to begin replacing the legacy LAV with the ARV in the late-2020s. “The Marine Corps is examining different threats,” Kimberly Bowen, deputy program man-

ager of Light Armored Vehicles, said. “The ARV helps the Corps maintain an overmatched peerto-peer capability.” The Office of Naval Research has begun researching advanced technologies to inform requirements, technology readiness assessments and competitive prototyping efforts for the nextgeneration ARV. The office is amid a science and technology phase that allows them to conduct advanced technology research and development, modeling and simulation, whole system trade studies and a full-scale technology demonstrator fabrication and evalu-

ation. These efforts will inform the requirements development process, jump-start industry and reduce risk in the acquisition program. The office is also supporting the Ground Combat Element Division of the Capabilities Development Directorate by performing a trade study through the U.S. Army Ground Vehicle Systems Center in Michigan. This work will help to ensure ARV requirements are feasible and to highlight the capability trade space. ONR has partnered with industry to build two technology

demonstrator vehicles for evaluation. The first is a base platform that will comprise current, stateof-the-art technologies and standard weapons systems designed around a notional price point. The second is an “at-the-edge” vehicle that demonstrates advanced capabilities. “The purpose of those vehicles is to understand the technology and the trades,” Myers said. In support of acquisition activities, PM LAV anticipates the release of an acquisition program Request for Information in May 2019 and an Industry Day later in the year to support a competitive prototyping effort. The Corps expects a Material Development Decision before fiscal year 2020. “We will take what we’ve learned in competitive prototyping,” Myers said. “Prior to a Milestone B decision, we’ll be working to inform trade space, inform requirements and reduce risk.” The Corps believes the ARV will support the capability demands of the next generation of armored reconnaissance. “This vehicle will equip the Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion within the Marine Divisions to perform combined arms, all-weather, sustained reconnaissance and security missions in support of the ground combat element,” Myers said. “It’s expected to be a transformational capability for the Marine Corps.”

NAS Whiting Field Air Operations Officer retires after 21 years of naval service By Jamie Link NASWF Public Affairs

A

fter 21 years of faithful service in the United States Navy, Cmdr. Doug “Rammer” Ramsey, NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) Air Operations Officer (OPSO), rendered his final salute in the base auditorium last week during a retirement ceremony among friends, family and Navy personnel. Ramsey reported to NAS Whiting Field in July 2017 to become the OPSO, the last step in a distinguished career. “With all the experiences, with all the countries, all the adventures, I’ve loved it,” he said. “But that’s not what makes the Navy. What makes the Navy is the people. The people you serve with, the people you lead with and work for – that’s what sticks with you in the long run. “This opportunity, this day is really not about me, it’s about you and it’s my chance to say thank you,” Ramsey concluded.

He graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1998 and earned his wings as a naval aviator in May 2000. After completing Fleet Logistics Support Squadron Three Zero (VRC-30) with aircraft commander qualification and two deployments supporting Fifth and Seventh Fleet Operations, he then reported to Training Squadron Four (VT-4). He was assigned to USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) in May 2007, with tours in the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea and Arabian Gulf. In August

2009, he reported to Fleet Logistics Support Squadron Four Zero (VRC-40). He had deployments with the Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group (CSG-1), during which he supported relief efforts following the Haiti earthquake in 2010. He then moved to Kadena Air Base, Japan as Air Operations Officer in May 2012. Ramsey reported to the aircraft carrier, USS Carl Vinson Cmdr.

May is MILITARY APPRECIATION MONTH Ar med Forces Day is May 18, 2019

From https://afd.defense.gov

O

n Aug. 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy and Air Force Days. The single-day celebration stemmed from the unification of the armed forces under one department – the Department of Defense. Each of the military leagues and orders was asked to drop sponsorship of its specific service day in order to celebrate the newly announced Armed Forces Day. The Army, Navy and Air Force leagues adopted the newly formed day. The Marine Corps League declined to drop support for Marine Corps Day but supports Armed Forces Day, too. In a speech announcing the formation of the day, President Truman “praised the work of the military services at home and across the seas” and said, “it is vital to the security of the nation and to the establishment of a desirable peace.” In an excerpt from the Presidential Proclamation of Feb. 27, 1950, Truman stated: “Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 20, 1950, marks the first combined demonstration by America’s defense team of its progress, under the National Security Act, towards the goal of readiness for any eventuality. It is the first parade of preparedness by the unified forces of our land, sea, and air defense.” The theme of the first Armed Forces Day was “Teamed for Defense.” It was chosen as a means of expressing the unification of all the military forces

under a single department of the government. Although this was the theme for the day, there were several other purposes for holding Armed Forces Day. It was a type of “educational program for civilians,” one in which there would be an increased awareness of the armed forces. It was designed to expand public understanding of what type of job is performed and the role of the military in civilian life. It was a day for the military to show “state-of- the-art” equipment to the civilian population they were protecting. And it was a day to honor and acknowledge the people of the armed forces of the United States. According to a New York Times article published May 17, 1952: “This is the day on which we have the welcome opportunity to pay special tribute to the men and women of the armed forces ... to all the individuals who are in the service of their country all over the world. Armed Forces Day won’t be a matter of parades and receptions for a good many of them. They will all be in line of duty and some of them may give their lives in that duty.” The first Armed Forces Day was celebrated by parades, open houses, receptions and

Word Search: ‘Thanks to you’

MAY 18, 2019 air shows. In Washington D.C., 10,000 troops of all branches of the military, cadets, and veterans marched past the President and his party. In Berlin, 1,000 U.S. troops paraded for the German citizens at Templehof Airfield. In New York City, an estimated 33,000 participants initiated Armed Forces Day “under an air cover of 250 military planes of all types.” In the harbors across the country were the famed mothballed “battlewagons” of World War II, the Missouri, the New Jersey, the North Carolina and the Iowa, all open for public inspection. Precision flying teams dominated the skies as tracking radar were exhibited on the ground. All across the country, the American people joined together to honor the armed forces. As the people gathered to honor the armed forces on this occasion, so too did the country’s leaders. Some of the more no-

table of these leaders’ quotes are stated below: President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1953: “It is fitting and proper that we devote one day each year to paying special tribute to those whose constancy and courage constitute one of the bulwarks guarding the freedom of this nation and the peace of the free world.” Adm. Forrest P. Sherman: “Today let us, as Americans, honor the American fighting man. For it is he – the Soldier, the Sailor, the Airman, the Marine – who has fought to preserve freedom. It is his valor that has given renewed hope to the free world that by working together in discipline and faith our ideals of freedom will always prevail.” Gen. Nathan F. Twining, 1959, former Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff: “Close understanding between members of our Armed Forces and

Gosling Games Color Me: ‘Color Guard’

members of civilian communities is most important to preserve the high level of national readiness necessary for safeguarding the free world.” Gen. Omar N. Bradley, Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: “The heritage of freedom must be guarded as carefully in peace as it was in war. Faith, not suspicion, must be the key to our relationships. Sacrifice, not selfishness, must be the eternal price of liberty. Vigilance, not appeasement, is the byword of living freedoms. Our armed forces in 1950 – protecting the peace, building for security with freedom – are “Teamed for Defense ...” Robert D. Lovett, Former Secretary of Defense: “Armed Forces Day this year should serve to emphasize the practical application of unification in action, and to remind us of the continued need for unity in our armed forces and among all of our citizens in the interests of security and peace.” President John F. Kennedy, 1963: “Our servicemen and women are serving throughout the world as guardians of peace – many of them away from their homes, their friends and their families. They are visible evidence of our determination to meet any threat to the peace with measured strength and high resolve. They are also evidence of a harsh but inescapable truth – that the survival of freedom requires great cost and commitment, and great personal sacrifice.” Armed Forces Day is celebrated annually on the third Saturday of May. Armed Forces Week begins on the second Saturday of May and ends on the third Sunday of May. Because of their unique training schedules, National Guard and Reserve units may celebrate Armed Forces Day/Week over any period in May.

NETC commander recognizes FY18 safety award winners From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

R

ear Adm. Kyle Cozad, commander, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), recognized the command’s Pensacola-area Fiscal Year 2018 (FY18) Excellence in Safety Award recipients April 17. This award acknowledges NETC individuals and activities who have significantly contributed to the command’s primary mission of providing well trained and professional Sailors and Marines to the Fleet in a safe and healthy environment. “We must balance our day to day training mission while embracing the principles of risk management, training safety protocol, and the Safety and Occupational Health Program by instilling sound safety practices in our daily work ethic,” Cozad said. NETC Excellence in Safety Award categories included: High Risk Training Safety Officer, Civilian Safety Professional Award, Collateral Duty Safety Officer and Activity Award. ABH1 Andres Gomez, Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC), Pensacola, has been NATTC’s high risk training safety officer since January 2017. He was recognized for his oversight of four high-risk firefighting courses and supervision

of 41 instructors, which contributed to significant improvements to the command’s High Risk Training Safety program. “Through Petty Officer Gomez’s leadership and commitment to safety, NATTC elevated the level of safety for its students and staff, thereby fostering a team atmosphere for safety management,” Cozad said. Zane Smith, a NATTC safety professional, was cited for his technical expertise and management of 32 Occupational Health and Safety programs. NATTC received a perfect score on NETC’s triennial Safety and Occupational Health Management Evaluation and had significant reductions to the command’s FY18 military on-duty, military off-duty, civilian onduty and lost time mishaps. “I commend Mr. Smith for his dedication and extraordinary efforts ensuring NATTC personnel were knowledgeable and well trained in all aspects and applications of risk management, mishap prevention and

applicable safety program requirements,” Cozad said. Other award winners included Staff Sgt. David Melton, Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) Detachment Camp Pendleton, Calif., and Center for Seabees and Facilities Engineering (CSFE) Detachment Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. Melton, who has been CNATT Det. Camp Pendleton’s command collateral duty safety officer since September 2017, was cited for his meticulous supervision of the command’s Occupational and Health Program. His actions directly led to the com-

mand receiving near-perfect grades on both the NETC triennial Safety and Occupational Health Management Evaluation and Camp Pendleton’s Industrial Hygiene report. CSFE Detachment Fort Leonard Wood was recognized for successfully incorporating the principles of risk-based management to develop and sustain a safety conscious culture. These practices, which resulted in zero class A or B mishaps, on-duty lost time cases, civilian mishaps, private motor vehicle mishaps and off-duty motorcycle mishaps in FY18, showed a positive return on investment

by keeping students in the classrooms and staff members at work. “While our success is dependent on the combined efforts of all NETC personnel, the award recipients have truly demonstrated their dedication to the command’s safety program,” Cozad said. The award recipients all received a certificate and plaque in appreciation of their dedication to the NETC Safety Program.

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 chain-of-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.

From Navy Yacht Club Pensacola Historic anniversaries are held to commemorate special and significant events in our lifetime. On April 12, 1931 the Navy Yacht Club of Pensacola (NYCP) was established aboard the Naval Air Station Pensacola. This year the club will celebrate their 88th Anniversary and one of the best ways for the club to recognize this historic event is to host a sailboat race out on the waters of Pensacola Bay along with a special Anniversary Marina Party. Not only will the Navy Yacht Club and its members be celebrating their 88 years of existence but also look forward to being participants in the newly established Pensacola Bay Championship Series – a community effort to encourage more participation not only from the local yacht clubs in our area but to invite and support community athletes from the northern gulf coast district. Sailboat regattas were and are still part of the regular activities for the club throughout the years – the club’s Commodore’s Cup Regatta Series is part of that history along with the club’s other races (the Anniversary Regatta and the Navy Cup Regatta) all are part of the very special anniversary events which are uniquely important to the participants but also these events help to document the club’s existence and show the club as an active member of the community. Because the Navy Yacht Club members respect their history, they look forward to providing more opportunities to create memorable moments in the community. Race Registration for the NYCP 88th Anniversary Regatta / Commodore’s Cup Race No.2 / Bay Championship Race No.5 is available via the Regatta Network and is mandatory. Registration and race information packages for the Commodore’s Cup Series can be obtained from the Navy Yacht Club through their website www. navypnsyc.org. Registration will also be open at
