A memorial service was held April 27 at NAS Pensacola’s (NASP) Barrancas National Cemetery (BNC) to give the families of 22 unaccompanied veterans closure. Though their own family members were not present, the service was a reminder that all service members share a larger family as well – that of their service to America.

The nearly two dozen service members came from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps – one was an Army Air Corps veteran. Though their services were varied, they shared a memorial; one that was attended by NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Martin, NASP Executive Officer Cmdr. Shawn Dominguez, the NAS Pensacola Honor Guard, members of the Florida Highway Patrol, Patriot Guard Riders of Northwest

Florida and various service organizations. “We need to do something to make sure that all of these veterans are honored,” BNC Director Craig LaChance said. “There’s different reasons they are unaccompanied; they may have simply outlived their family. They have come from as far away as Seattle and the family may not be able to travel. And we always check with these families to be sure it’s OK

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFF), headquartered in Norfolk, Va., and Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) based in Washington, D.C., are conducting a natural disaster preparedness exercise, Hurricane Exercise/Citadel Gale 2017 (HURREX/CG 17), May 8-19. This annual exercise prepares the Navy to respond to adverse weather threats in U.S. coastal regions, and to maintain the ability to deploy forces even under the most severe weather conditions. Onboard NAS Pensacola, Emergency Manager Burt Fenters asks base personnel to plan accordingly. “Hurricane Matthew last season was qualified as a ‘near miss’ barely making landfall in South Carolina before going back out to sea,” Fenters said. “Fifty-two people in the U.S. died directly or indirectly from this hurricane/rain event; only one died from storm surge. Carelessness: It’s ‘everything else you do’ before and after that matters.” See HURREX on page 2

While with the “Sun Kings,” he flew missions in support of Operation SouthernWatch and the initial strikes of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In August 2004, Shepard reported to VAW-120 again, this time as a flight instructor. After his instructor tour, he served as the assistant air operations officer from December 2006 to December 2008 for Carrier Strike Group Nine (CSG-9), onboard USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). During this tour, CSG-9 conducted a combat deployment in support of operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom In November 2008, Shepard was assigned to Navy Personnel Command in Millington, Tenn. as the VAW-VRC detailer. His next assignment in December of 2010 was a department head tour with VAW-112 “Golden Hawks,” aboard USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) with Carrier Air Wing Nine (CVW9), where he completed two combat deployments in support of operations Enduring Freedom and New Dawn. Following his department head tour, Shepard reported to the Naval War College in Newport, R.I., where he earned a master of arts degree in national security and strategic studies. In July 2014, he was assigned to the Headquarters U.S. Africa Command J33, Joint Operations Center, in Stuttgart, Germany as the operations officer. In May 2016, Shepard reported to VT-4 as the executive officer. Cmdr. Christopher M. Brown will relieve Shepard as the executive officer for the squadron. Upon relinquishing command of VT-4, Weeks will report for duty as navigator onboard USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) in Yokosuka, Japan.


NASP gets an ‘Alpha’ workout Story and photo by Marshall Pesta MWR Marketing

Obstacle course challenges are a familiar thing for many in the military, but few are as mentally and physically challenging as the Alpha Warrior Battle Rig. Alpha Warrior, a relative newcomer on the fitness scene, challenges athletes with unique obstacles that challenge both the body and the mind. They brought that challenge to NAS Pensacola this week, first meeting service members at NAS Pensacola and NASP Corry Station May 1, and then with the Alpha Warrior Battle Rig Challenge at the NATTC Charlie Hangar May 2. The event opened the course to members of the military, DoD, and their families, and even included a Youth Battle Rig Experience for the littlest warriors. Members from the Family Fitness Center welcomed nearly 200 children to take on the youth obstacle challenge. Brent Steffensen, a veteran of the “American Ninja

Warrior” show and a Hollywood stuntman, said the greatest part of the Alpha Warrior training is learning to adapt to the various challenges, all while enjoying the workout.

“To me, the highlight is that not only is it fitness driven, it’s also fun. I love seeing these guys come out and enjoy the course,” said Steffensen. “Even more important is that it’s functional fitness, these challenges breed adaptability, and hopefully that could even save lives down the road.” The Alpha Warrior Military Challenge has been working with the Army and Air Force during the last year, visiting different bases, and leaving behind battle rigs for the troops to train on. This was the first visit to a naval base, a trial run. The Alpha Warrior Challenge proved too difficult for many to master this time, but Marine Sgt. Anthony Harvey, from Aviation Maintenance Squadron 1, Marine Aviation Training Support Group 23, broke the Military Challenge record with a perfect completion in just one minute and five seconds. The Alpha Warrior Military Challenge will continue throughout the U.S., visiting 40 military bases this year.

“Where we hang our hat is our home,” Schwarz said. “Whether it’s San Diego or Pensacola, members of the Navy enjoy helping our community, and encouraging these young officers to get to know their neighbors and become involved in projects which will be beneficial to the Pensacola area is a responsibility Navy leadership takes seriously.” Schwarz has been involved with the project for more than two years, coordinating volunteers with Ecological Consulting Services Inc., Deadman’s Island Clean-up Project manager and marine biologist Heather Reed. He said the amount of volunteer effort toward the project has been overwhelming, with students assisting in the rebuilding an oyster reef barrier near the island, repairing a fence along the shoreline and freeing trapped marine life. According to Reed, volunteer efforts have ensured the project has been able to continue. “We never would have been able to get this much done so fast without the Navy’s help,” she said. She added that while significant progress has been made toward the project, much work remains, including planting sea grass on the bay side to prevent further erosion. Reed said that Deadman’s Island is a unique coastal ecosystem within a bay, one of 21 coastal barrier resource units in Florida protected by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. One side of the island is edged by saltwater while the other is bordered by a freshwater marsh. Ensuring that ecosystem is capable of sustaining wildlife and foliage is a challenge she has accepted and embraced, and credits the hundreds of volunteers who have assisted with the project over the years. “Their hard work has helped make Deadman’s Island safe and enjoyable for the entire community and future generations,” Reed said. “I am grateful for all they have done.”

to include them in this ceremony. It provides long-distance closure.” Among the service organizations present were members of Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Thomas F. Welch Post 706. “We think this is an excellent way to render honors to our veterans that may not have relatives available,” said VFW Post 706’s Victor Looney. “So being the band of brothers that we are, we’re out here to support them.” The honor flag for the April 27 service was received by BNC employee Latangela Roberts, for presentation to NASP CO Martin. LaChance noted that BNC’s memorial service for unaccompanied veterans has been going on for a few years; it is performed quarterly. The next such memorial is scheduled for July 27 at 8 a.m.

HURREX/CG 17 will involve two simulated storm systems developing and intensifying to hurricane strength, threatening the Gulf Coast and East Coast regions. All Navy commands at Navy Region Mid-Atlantic, Naval District Washington and Navy Region Southeast will participate by reviewing and exercising heavy weather instructions and procedures and accounting for Sailors, Department of the Navy civilians, and Navy families in the affected regions through the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS). There will be no U.S. Navy ship movements associated with HURREX/CG 17.

Transition from military to civilian life can’t be rushed By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist


few days ago, I made my usual school drop off, then took our two-year-old lab Moby on his regular morning walk.

While we trudged around the local reservoir, I listened to my latest audio book and focused my eyes on the path, dodging the many goose deposits. At some point, I managed to lift my head and look out toward the sea. The sight stopped me in my tracks. While the rest of the hemisphere had been raving for weeks about balmy temps, sprouting buds, and baby animals, here in New England I have been straight-jacketed into a ridiculous full-length down coat since last October. The kind I swore I would never buy because it makes me look like the Stay Puff Marshmallow man. Moby stood dripping, patiently waiting for me to throw his raggedy tennis ball into the water again, while I paused to take in the scene before me. It was finally, undoubtedly, splendidly … spring. Although the grass seemed a little greener that

morning, there had been no obvious signs. No happy tulips, no ducklings beating to stay in line with their mothers, no tender chartreuse shoots on the trees. The air was still a chilly 44 degrees, and despite Moby’s willingness to swim in it, the water was frigid. Beyond the path, the tall reeds between the reservoir and the beach appeared pale, brittle and lifeless. And, there was no foliage on the prickly rose hips lining the coastline. But I saw that just beyond the dunes, the ocean was glimmering. Juxtaposed against the pale morning sky and the seemingly dormant landscape, the sea was a beautiful blanket of flashing silver sequins. Suddenly, the day seemed fresh and full of promise. Even Moby’s slimy tennis ball appeared a brighter shade of yellow, as I tossed it into the clear, cold water. I continued down the path with a new spring in my step,

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. as I remembered the long winter our family had endured. It had been particularly challenging, because my husband Francis had just retired from the Navy after 28 years and was transition-

ing to a civilian career. Based upon the positive responses Francis received from various hiring managers, we thought he would get a job before his terminal leave was over on Nov. 1. But come winter, we realized that the transition would take longer than we had expected. Not wanting to give up on his dream of working in corporate global security, Francis continued to beat the pavement, networking relentlessly and applying for a wide range of positions in his field. In the meantime, we rearranged our finances to adapt to military retirement pay. That winter, as I tromped the icy local dog walking paths each morning with Moby bundled in my down coat, I pushed away fears of long-term unemployment and prayed for good news. The bright civilian future we had imagined appeared dim and foggy. “You’re overqualified,” Francis heard from two companies. “We need someone with corporate experience,” others said. All those years of military service, working on missions that made a real difference in the world … was

it all coming down to this? “Every company wants to help the military, until you ask them to help the military,” one mentor astutely pointed out. Finally, after many months of networking, phone calls, meetings and interviews, Francis landed the corporate job he was looking for all along, but it is located out of state and requires us to live apart while our daughter Lilly finishes high school. As a military family accustomed to the “geobachelor” lifestyle, we have simply adapted to this new routine. It hasn’t been easy, but we realize that our transition is not complete – we are still cultivating our future. Just like spring in New England, the transition from military to civilian life cannot be rushed. Even if we can’t yet see them, the buds of our new life are there, growing invisibly under the surface. Like the persistent little snowdrop that I noticed flowering beside the reservoir path that chilly spring morning, the seeds we are sowing will bloom brightly in due time. As long as we keep our sights focused on the hopeful, glimmering horizon.

When the chips fall, be ready to take charge: Navy’s ‘Hidden Figure’ advises DoD audience By John Joyce NSWC Dahlgren Division Corporate Communications and Public Affairs


AHLGREN, Va. (NNS) – It was the first time Raye Montague traveled by train since 1956 when she left segregated Little Rock, Ark., to look for a job in Washington, D.C. The Navy’s first woman engineer was on her way to speak at a Women’s History Month event sponsored by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) April 5. As the train headed toward Virginia, Montague reflected on her life, career experiences, and any words of wisdom that she could pass on to those gathered at the Naval Support Facility theater to celebrate an observance emphasizing the 2017 Women’s History national theme: “Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business.” Montague didn’t know where she would work – let alone foresee that she would become a trailblazer in labor, business, government, military and academia – when she arrived in the nation’s capital 61 years ago. “I really didn’t know what I was going to do,” Montague told the military, government civilian and defense contractor audience. “What am I going to do? What type of job am I going to be able to get? How am I going to make a living? All of a sudden, I’m on my own.” At the time, the Navy’s first woman program manager for ships knew she would become an engineer. The fact that she did not have an engineering degree did not stop her dream from becoming reality. “I made that decision when I was seven years old,” said Montague, recounting a pivotal moment in her life. The United States captured a German minisubmarine and brought it to downtown Little Rock and my grandfather took me down to see it. I saw the dials and mechanisms and looked through the periscope.” Montague asked the tour guide what she needed to know to operate a submarine and recalled his response, “Oh, you’d have to be an engineer but you don’t ever have to worry about that.” “Well, I didn’t realize that I had been insulted because of my gender and my race,” said Montague. She asked her mother to find out what was required to be an engineer and found that “it

was math and science and thinking outside of the box.” Montague’s mother, as well as her eighth-grade teacher, encouraged her to dream big and think out of the box, she said. “Aim for the stars, at the very worst, you’ll land on the moon,” said Montague repeating her teacher’s advice. Throughout her life, Montague recalled that she remained undaunted and overcame objections and cultural challenges. She didn’t just break glass ceilings, she refused to acknowledge them. For example, Montague’s high school required four years of home economics for girls but she wanted to build design things in shop class. “Girls couldn’t go to shop,” said Montague, but her mother “did battle” with school administrators, “and convinced them that if I could pass the written exam in home economics without attending the classes, I could take shop. What they didn’t realize was that I had a photographic memory.” Montague aced the home economics classes and took four years of high school shop classes. “After I graduated high school, I wanted to go to engineering school,” she said; however, “the only school in the state of Arkansas that offered a degree in engineering was the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and they did not accept minorities.” The Arkansas Agricultural, Mechanical and Normal College accepted Montague who graduated with a bachelor of science degree in business at the historically black college and university. “In the meantime, I was in the debate teams in high school and in college so I could hold my own in speaking,” she said. Montague would use her speaking skills to great advantage in her remarkable 33-year career with the U.S. Navy. One day after graduation, she took the train to Washington, D.C., with plans to learn more about engineering and take charge of her career. The Navy hired her as a GS-3

Godfrey “Gus” Weekes meet at NSWCDD headquarters prior to Montague’s keynote speech at a National Women’s History Month Observance.

entry level clerk-typist but she listened and learned. “I’ve got this photographic memory and I could hold two conversations on the surface and listen to a third and I would learn while listening,” said Montague. “I’m sure that most of you have similar talents – you just got to know how to use it and apply it.” She listened to the conversations of engineers who graduated from Harvard and Yale universities and learned from the team of scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project and developed the atom bomb. Montague’s Navy bosses assumed she was on the leading edge of technology because she had a bachelor of science degree. They asked her to confirm that she knew all about their new computer. “I had never seen a computer, and Arkansas didn’t have a computer then. I said, ‘of course I do,’ so they said ‘get to work’.” Montague did get to work and quickly learned how to operate the UNIVersal Automatic Computer (UNIVAC) 1 – currently on display in the Smithsonian Institution. “It was a 1,000-word mercury tank two-memory with vacuum tubes,” said Montague, regarding the tanks of mercury used for UNIVAC 1’s memory. “We did not have higher level languages at all. We had to program it in machine language and you upgraded the computer in Excess-3 binary code. You know I didn’t learn that in Arkansas.” Although she never earned an engineering degree, Montague

picked up engineering skills on the job and attended computer programming school at night. She achieved professional expertise and experience and became a registered professional engineer in the United States and Canada. Montague – who was the Program Manager of Ships (PMS– 309) for the Naval Sea Systems Command Information Systems Improvement Program – paused to counsel an audience attentive to her every word. “Don’t say, ‘This is not a part of my job’,” advised Montague. “Learn everybody’s job, OK? And when chips fall, you step in. When the doors of opportunity open, you can’t say, ‘Let me go back and get my bags.’ You’ve got to be ready to step in – you step in and take charge.” Montague – known as the “Navy’s hidden figure” – is no longer hidden. “I thought about all of things that happened to me in my career – all the doors that I had opened and glass ceilings that I broke,” she recounted. “I didn’t realize that I was breaking glass ceilings back then. I was just doing what had to be done. One of the keys to advancing is to always go to personnel and look at the job description above your level and you will find that the terminology is something that you can describe doing in the same terms. That’s important,” Montague said. Despite her increasing skills and responsibilities, Montague often had to defend her right to equal pay and promotions and

she continued to seize the opportunities that came her way. A big one came when Navy admirals asked Montague if she could design a naval ship in one month using a system she developed. In response, she made history as the first person to design a U.S. Navy warship – the USS Oliver Hazard Perry (FFG-7), lead ship of the Oliver Hazard Perry class of guided–missile frigates – in less than 19 hours. This accomplishment proved a turning point in rapidly advancing her career. “In order to advance, you’ve got to think and anticipate what people are going to say to you. You can’t say, ‘I wish I thought about this, or I wish I said that.’ Think and anticipate. For example, once I completed the ship design, DoD (Department of Defense) set up what they called a manufacturer technology advisory group. I was the Navy representative and worked with white men. I was always the only woman in the group. Of course, everybody thought I was the secretary rather than realizing I was in charge. They would come in and talk to the guys (Montague’s team of engineers) who would say, – ‘No, she’s in charge’.” At that point, Montague – the first African American woman engineer –who revolutionized the design process for all naval ships and submarines – took charge.

NEMUS, UK, France complete Exercise Alligator Dagger 17 From USS Bataan Amphibious Ready Group and 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit Public Affairs


RTA BEACH, Djibouti (NNS) – Forces from the U.S., U.K. and France completed Exercise Alligator Dagger 17, a two-week multilateral amphibious exercise in international waters off the coast of Djibouti and in the vicinity of Djibouti and Arta Beach April 20. Exercise Alligator Dagger 17, led by U.S. Naval Amphibious Forces, Task Force 51/5th Marine and Expeditionary Brigade (51/5), brought together elements of the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) and 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) with forces from the Royal Navy and French Marines. The exercise’s purpose was to familiarize units with the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) area of responsibility and to sharpen tactical proficiency for the ARG/MEUs as well as other partner nations in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations. Participating forces include the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Bataan (LHD 5), the command ship for Amphibious Squadron (PHIBRON) 8, USS Carter Hall (LSD 50), 24th MEU, the Royal Navy ship HMS Monmouth (F235), USS Ponce (AFSB(I)-15) and a detachment of the French 5th Marine Regiment. Exercise Alligator Dagger 17

is one of several training opportunities to be undertaken by Marines and Sailors during their deployment in the region. Recurring training opportunities such as this one support the relationship and professional development of military-tomilitary with partnering nations. “What’s great about these exercises is that we gain proficiency in our ability to operate effectively with coalition forces,” said Commander Amphibious Squadron 8, Capt. Larry LeGree. “Table-top exercises have great value, but nothing beats actual at-sea operations to train as we fight. This high-end interoperability with the Royal Navy and the French Marines has reinforced my confidence in our ability to plan and execute together as an effective coalition force.” “This exercise was a valuable opportunity to maintain our fighting edge whilst being able to train with some of the nations and ships we will be working with over the coming months,” said Royal Navy

The Royal Navy frigate HMS Monmoth steams alongside the amphibious assault ship USS Bataan (LHD 5) while conducting small boat operations during exercise Alligator Dagger 17 in the vicinity of Djibouti.

Forces at sea conducted anti-air and anti-submarine exercises to enhance at sea communication and coordination and provide a unique opportunity to enhance multilateral capabilities in critical mission-sets inherent to the U.S. Navy-Marine Corps team with partners and allies in the region. “The ability to utilize and incorporate coalition forces into the Alligator Dagger 2017 antisubmarine warfare (ASW) exercise proved to be a great

opportunity to improve our operational prowess, to work through international barriers, and to enhance our understanding of the capabilities of nonorganic allied forces,” said Lt. William Rash, Amphibious Squadron 8 ASW officer. Alligator Dagger provided the opportunity to refresh the proficiency of Sailors and Marines in the execution of aviation and ground support operations in an austere and arid environment. “There were multiple instances of interoperability between the Aviation Combat Element (ACE) and the French forces,” said Maj. Jason Harris, operations officer of the MEU’s ACE, Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 365. “We were able to execute skills including reduced visibility landings, for-

ward arming and refueling point establishment, tactical recovery of aircraft and personnel, and air combat maneuvering. The training we accomplished will further prepare us to support the MEU in the execution of any contingency operations.” U.S. 5th Fleet’s area of operations encompasses about 2.5 million square miles of water area and includes the Arabian Gulf, Red Sea, Gulf of Oman and parts of the Indian Ocean. This expanse, comprised of 20 countries, includes three critical choke points at the Strait of Hormuz, the Suez Canal and the Strait of Bab el-Mandeb at the southern tip of Yemen.

Military Appreciation Picnic onboard NASWF May 19 Story, photo by Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) is gearing up for a day of fun in the sun as Santa Rosa County Chamber of Commerce, the local business community and NASWF Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) will present the 2017 Military Appreciation Picnic onboard NAS Whiting Field at the sports complex softball fields May 19. The event will include food, activities for all ages and live entertainment. All military, retirees, DoD personnel and their families are invited to attend the picnic, which will start at 3 p.m. and run until 7 p.m. Musical guests, country/rock guitarists Tony Pasko and Timmy Segar, will perform and entertain the crowd during the festivities. Pasko is the music

writer for the popular television series “Duck Dynasty,” and Segar is returning from last year’s performance. Children will have the opportunity to play carnival-style games, ride the cow train and get their faces painted under shaded tents. Bounce houses, bounce slides, a rock wall, bungee trampolines, sports play stations and a gladiator game will also be set up for maximum fun. Whataburger will be providing games to play and chances to win prizes. Santa Rosa Medical Center will be providing the hamburgers and hot dogs, and Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office personnel will cook over a charcoal grill. Chick-fil-A and Firehouse Subs will also be providing food for the picnic. Snow cones and popcorn will be provided by the Navy League and will be handed out during the picnic. The military appreciation picnic is a way for the local com-

munity to show their appreciation for the military members and their families at NASWF. “With everything that is going on in the world today, it is more important than ever to say ‘thank you’ to our military men and women,” Tracy Allen, the event

coordinator said. “This picnic is just a small token of our appreciation.” All active-duty personnel will receive a gift with chances to win many door prizes. The Bloodmobile will be on base if anyone would like to do-

nate blood and those who donate will receive a free T-shirt. “We appreciate the generosity of the local community and the Santa Rosa Chamber and look forward to a fun picnic on the 19th,” NASWF CMC Lee Stephens said.

NASWF takes a big step in energy conservation From Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field PAO

Finding ways to conserve energy and save on energy and water utilities costs has long been a strategic goal for the Navy. Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) and Gulf Power are teaming up on a long term project to help make that goal a reality for the installation. The Utilities Energy Saving Contract (UESC) is a long term agreement between NASWF and Gulf Power that enables the utility company to install a wide variety of energy saving measures on the air station which will then be paid back over a period of about 20 years using in large measure, the energy savings generated by the improvements. The largest single energy conservation measure is the “virtual” chiller plant installed for Bldgs. 3005, 3005A, 3125, 2946 and 2992. Construction of the project began in April and is expected to be complete in June. When finished, the centralized cooling distribution system will significantly reduce the energy consumption for the buildings. The facilities are the most expensive structures to operate on the installation due to the

flight simulators and their energy demands. These buildings currently have standalone chilled water systems with a mix of existing air and water cooled HVAC equipment. The Peterson Simulator Facility, Bldg. 3005, becomes the central distribution point for chilled water where a new high-efficiency, frictionless, magnetic bearing chiller has been installed. Direct digital controls (DDC) have

been programmed, using Siemens’ Demand Flow solution, to create optimized, real-time control of the “virtual” chilled water plant. Excess heat produced by the simulators will be transported back to the plant by the new piping, and a heat rejection chiller will recover this energy and use it to supplement the building’s heating and de-humidification systems. The “virtual” chiller plant is one of the more ingenious energy conservation

measures (ECMs) developed for the UESC. This one measure will reduce the overall energy use of the combined plants by more than 34 percent, or $66,000 per year – fully one-eighth of contract’s planned savings. The UESC was awarded in September 2016 for an expected overall cost of $10 million. Already other measures have begun including replacing interior and exterior lighting with low LED alternatives, installing water and electrical upgrades, and more. The first year utilities savings are expected to be approximately $495,000. “Every aspect of the virtual chiller plant project is on the cutting edge,” NAS Whiting Field Energy Manager Jason Poe said. “Once completed the plant will create savings that will pay for itself over time, while providing a more comfortable work environment.” Additional benefits of the UESC include reduced greenhouse gas emissions, increased reliability, improved working environments, and enhanced temperature controls in the workcenters. The upgrades will affect nearly every building and command on NAS Whiting Field.

Navy salutes Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs


ASHINGTON (NNS) – The Navy joins the nation in celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month throughout May. AlNav 006/17 encourages participation in all the heritage celebrations and observances special throughout the year. This year, Navy commands are encouraged to celebrate and reflect on the theme “Unite Our Voices by Speaking Together.” “It is an honor and a privilege to serve with such a diverse group of officers and enlisted personnel who make up our Navy,” said Rear Adm. Bette Bolivar, a Hawaiian-born Filipino and the 40th commander of Navy Region Southeast in Jacksonville, Fla. “I’m blessed at the opportunities the Navy has given me, and I’m thankful to cele-

brate this month with my fellow Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.” There are 24,743 Asian American and Pacific Islander Sailors currently serving as part of One Navy Team, including eight admirals, 659 master chief and senior chief petty officers and 318 officers. These Sailors represent more than 56 ethnic groups, speaking over 100 languages from Asia and the Pacific Islands, living in the United States. Asian American and Pacific Islanders represent 11.7 percent of the Navy civilian workforce and 3.2 percent of Senior Executive Service members.

“Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have a proud history,” Bolivar said. “It’s a history of service. We’re dedicated not only to our heritage, but also to our Navy; to be a shining example of the core values that guide us: honor, courage and commitment.” Asian American and Pacific Islanders of various nationalities and ancestry have been serving in the Navy since the early 19th century. The rich history of these cultures, their struggles against adversity to achieve equality, significant contributions to the American experience and the opportunity to build the

foundation for a bright future are made reality by some great leaders who share the same heritage. For more information about the history of Asian

Americans and Pacific Islanders and their numerous contributions to the Navy, visit www. history. navy. mil/ browse-bytopic/ diversity/ asian-

IWTC Corry Station improves student fitness Story, photo by MC2 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs


tudents and staff at Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station cheered on their fellow Sailors as they participated in makeup physical readiness tests (PRT) April 25-26.

CTMCM Eddy Mejias (right), senior enlisted leader for Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station, runs alongside students as they complete a “bad day” physical readiness test (PRT). Bad day PRTs provide Sailors who did not earn a satisfactory score on their biannual PRT with a second chance to complete the assessment.

The makeup or “bad day” PRT provides Sailors who did not earn a satisfactory score on their biannual PRT with a second chance to complete the assessment. IWTC Corry Station leadership encouraged Sailors to motivate the participants as they completed the run portion of the test. “I’ve never seen as much command support for a physical fitness program as I do here,” said CTT1 Benjamin Rera, one of IWTC Corry Station’s command fitness leaders. “The amount of effort that goes into promoting fitness

speaks volumes about the support level that we provide our students.” The bad day PRTs are part of an effort to improve the school house’s fitness standards and overall physical readiness, including allocating time for physical training during the work day and running monthly mock PRTs. The command considers each request for a makeup attempt by examining the results of the student’s mock PRTs to determine if the failure resulted from a bad day or from improper conditioning prior to the test. “During my previous

tour with the naval special warfare community, I was able to see the benefits of a strong emphasis on physical fitness in terms of Sailor readiness and the development of a healthy mechanism to deal with stress,” said Cmdr. Christopher Eng, IWTC Corry Station’s commanding officer. “Physical fitness has been a top priority of mine, and thanks to the efforts of our staff our results have been admirable so far.” Eng is working to find the right balance between the demands of often intensive training require-

ments and a Sailor’s overall health and wellbeing. IWTC Corry Station PRT scores have shown significant improvement as pass rates increased from 85.5 percent in 2015 to 95.5 percent in 2016. Eng said he hopes to see a 97 percent pass rate in the first cycle of 2017. “Allowing our students the opportunity to come out and motivate their fellow Sailors helps to reinforce Navy and command themes of teamwork and support for one another,” said Eng. “We need resiliency, toughness and no bystanders.”

As part of the emphasis on physical fitness, IWTC Corry Station partnered with Naval Air Station Pensacola’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) and the Corry Station galley. The gym is running a trial with extended gym hours, particularly for students who attend classes on a swing shift. The galley staff is working with the command to offer healthy food options that students want, such as quick options for breakfast that encourage healthy eating habits and also support student learning. “One student stated that he was heavily utilizing the gym’s expanded hours and he achieved the highest amount of curl-ups during this PRT,” said Eng, expressing his appreciation for the superb help of the gym’s trainers and nutri-

tionist for working and deconflicting with student schedules. training “Within the accession pipeline and in partnership with their first commands, we need to commit to getting these young Sailors where they need to be.” IWTC Corry Station, as part of the Center for Information Warfare Training, provides a continuum of training to Navy and joint service personnel that prepares them to conduct information warfare (IW) across the full spectrum of military operations.

Unrestricted reporting allows victim 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.

By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

Nearly 200 professional watercross riders will be racing on the emerald waters at Pensacola Beach for the Heyday Pro Watercross Tour. Also known as NASCAR on water, Pro Watercross jet ski racing is returning to the beach for the fourth year. Events are scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow, May 6, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 7. Racers will take to the Gulf of Mexico to compete for prizes and points. The events are free for the public to watch. The viewing area will be to the east of the Casino Beach pier. Teams from all over the world will compete in a racing

division and a freestyle division (tricks, flips and jumps). The event is the first stop on the 2017 Heyday Pro Watercross National Tour. Round two is scheduled for May 1314 in Panama City Beach. Pensacola Sports President Ray Palmer said being the first stop on the tour will give Pensacola and Pensacola Beach some great exposure as people tune in from around the world to the online telecast. The Pro Watercross Tour is the leading personal watercraft racing series in the United States and consists of both professional and amateur athletes competing at eight events throughout the summer. The tour has recently expanded its spectrum to include fly board and hydro drag competitions, with tentative plans to include

wake sports competitions. Racers will fight for rankings on the way to the tour’s national championship in Charleston, W.Va., in August. The World Championship competition is scheduled for Nov. 2-5 in Naples, Fla. UWP, tour event producer, was founded in 1995 as a regional race circuit in upstate New York. In 2000, UWP was awarded a stop on the IJSBA National Tour, which for a short time became the American Power Boat Association (APBA) National Tour. In 2009, UWP established the UWP-IJSBA National Tour, and the tour was rebranded as the Pro Watercross Tour in 2014. For more information, call 434-2800 or go to http://pro watercross.com/.
