Dr. Jill Biden visits EHS, speaks on expanded education initiative From staff reports

Second Lady of the United States Dr. Jill Biden visited Pensacola’s Escambia High School (EHS) April 29 to discuss the expansion of the National Math and Science Initiative’s (NMSI) College Readiness Program for Military Families. Escambia County has the honor of being one of just two school districts in Florida accepted into the program this year, and an estimated 20 percent of EHS students are Pensacola-area military families. Five of Escambia’s high schools (Escambia, Pensacola, Washington, Pine Forest and West Florida) are set to participate in the College Readiness Program. Biden was accompanied by Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Frank Kendall. Kendall flew into NAS Pensacola’s Forrest

Sherman Field April 29. Biden shared the stage with Jason Silva, host of Geographic National Channel’s “Brain Games.” Silva engaged student teams with some quickthinking exercises. NMSI was launched in 2007 with the goal of infoundational creasing knowledge and skills in math and science, crucial to the country’s capacity for innovation and future economic growth. The programs provide a continuum of training and support for students and teachers from elementary school through college and are having a demonstrable and lasting impact on student outcomes. NMSI is a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming math and science education in today’s classrooms with proven, effective programs that can be replicated nationwide.

NATTC, NASP FFSC sponsor ‘Amazing SAPR Race’ From Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Public Affairs

Nearly 2,000 Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) students participated in the fourth annual NATTC and Naval Air Station Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC)-sponsored Amazing SAPR Race April 29. The event immediately followed NATTC’s Light Up The Night sunrise gathering, also an annual NATTC function featuring guest speakers and information in support of the Navywide Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM). According to Amazing SAPR Race organizer Chief and NATTC instructor ASC(AW/SW) Shanta Bernard, the annual 5K run is designed as an educational event, a proactive effort to instruct participating students about sexual assault resources, the role of alcohol in sexual assault, bystander intervention and supporting victims of sexual assault. “At NATTC we have a large amount of new Sailors and while we’re here to train them in aviation rates, we also want to make sure they’re trained on how to be good Sailors, and that includes the prevention of sexual assault,” Bernard said. “So we take this month, the month of April, and SAAPM very seriously, and we do things like the Amazing

SAPR Race to help them be aware in preventing sexual assault.” The 3.1 mile course included

three stations at which participants were required to stop and receive a brief talk on the role of alcohol in sexual assault, provide

an example of different types of intervention and observe a brief skit and identify what type of intervention was portrayed. Signs along the race route provided information to assist participants in answering questions at each stop. Bernard said that events such as this continue to stress the importance the Navy places on sexual assault prevention, and hoped the Amazing SAPR Race provided an entertaining and educational experience for participants. “There’s a lot more stress and focus on prevention of sexual assault – that’s why we have SAAPM now,” she said. “The biggest thing I hope the students can gain from this is prevention See Race on page 2

Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

Defense stakeholders, such as U.S. Cyber Command and the service components. The ceremony’s guest speaker, Vice Adm. Ted N. Branch, the deputy chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare and the Director of Naval Intelligence, described the growing importance of training today’s IW community, especially in the dynamic environment that it operates in. He also commended Fox for the role she played in leading 1,300 staff members across 18 training locations, in meeting those demands. “Mo, you’ve certainly made your mark during this command tour and that is no surprise to me,” said Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare and Director of Naval Intelligence, Vice Adm. Ted Branch. “We placed the careers of those information warfare Sailors in your hands and you responded so magnificently well. As you head off to your next assignment at the Undersea Warfare Development Center in San Diego, I know you will continue to excel.” During the ceremony, Fox was awarded the Legion of Merit. Branch welcomed Lintz, who comes to CID from his last assignment as deputy chief of the Remote Operations Center at the National Security Agency/Central Security Service, Fort Meade, Md. “Bill, it now falls on you to build on these accomplishments,” said Branch. “You are supremely qualified to take on the task and maintain the momentum that Mo established.

“I know you are deeply aware that there are many challenges still ahead for the Information Warfare Training community. While no stranger to the role of commanding officer, this job will present you with plenty more opportunities to succeed.” Lintz is a 1992 graduate of Villanova University with master’s and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School. As a cryptologic officer, Lintz has served with various afloat and ashore commands, including U.S. Naval Forces Central Command / U.S. 5th Fleet as fleet intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance collection manager and assistant force cryptologist; Navy Information Operations Command, NASP, as executive officer; U.S. Third Fleet as deputy assistant chief of staff for Operations and Fleet Information Operations lead; U.S. Pacific Fleet in the Directorate of Information Operations and Cryptology as lead for Fleet Requirements, Manpower, and Training; and Fleet Intelligence Training Center in San Diego as commanding officer.

Innovations, organ donations will save lives By Jeffrey Zients, Thomas Kalil and Dr. Mary Wakefield Office of Science and Technology Policy

T

here are currently more than 120,000 people on the waiting list for an organ in the United States, and 22 people a day die waiting. But April 1, we took one step forward to change that. In honor of National Donate Life Month, President Barack Obama issued a proclamation that solidifies his administration’s commitment to shortening the organ waiting list, emphasizing that “across government, industry, academia, private organizations, and the medical and philanthropic communities, we must all do our part to lift up donors, donor families, and patients by supporting efforts to shorten the organ waiting list.” The proclamation builds on the action the administration has taken to improve outcomes for individuals waiting for organ transplants and support living donors. Each year, approximately 6,000 Americans make the decision to become a living organ donor, facilitating life-

saving kidney and liver transplants. Under the Affordable Care Act, individuals who have donated organs have access to health insurance without worrying whether their donation will be considered a pre-existing condition. The HOPE Act signed by President Obama in 2013 laid the groundwork for the first HIV-positive to HIVpositive transplants in the United States. In April, surgeons at Johns Hopkins announced that they had performed the first-in-theworld HIV-positive to HIVpositive liver transplant and the first-in-the-U.S. HIVpositive to HIV-positive kidney transplant. These medical successes will pave the way for as many as 1,000 people a year in the United States to have access to life-saving trans-

plants that would not have been possible before. But there is still more we can do. The vast majority of the organ waiting list is made up of people waiting for a kidney transplant. These Americans are hoping for a life-saving transplant that can add more years to their lives. In addition to the tremendous human cost, the kidney waiting list carries a huge cost to the public purse; Medicare pays more than $34 billion per year – more than the entire budget of the National Institutes of Health – to care for patients with end-stage kidney failure. A recent transformative innovation called kidney paired donation (KPD),

which pools living donors and recipients to increase the likelihood of matches, can improve this. In order to increase the number of potentransplants, the tial Department of Health and Human Services launched a nationwide KPD program in 2010 to build on this practice. Drawing on the spirit of innovation that President Obama spoke about in this year’s State of the Union, seven government agencies have now invested nearly $3 billion throughout a threeyear period in the future of bioengineering to advance our understanding of wound repair and organ and tissue regeneration and preservation. Part of the answer will be continuing to invest in scientific breakthroughs that redefine what is possible in bioengineering. Just a few generations ago, living without kidneys was unimaginable. But that changed thanks to Dr. Willem Kolff, a Dutch immigrant who brought his invention of the dialysis machine to the United States after World War II. As we seek to create the future we want to live in, we

must harness this spirit of hard work and creativity to help shorten the organ waiting list. Towards that end, in the coming months, senior administration officials will host a summit at the White House to highlight the role of innovation in organ donation and transplantation, discuss the challenges we face, and lift up commitments to meet them. As the president said in his proclamation, “we recommit to supporting the researchers, innovators, advocates, and medical professionals working to reduce the number of people awaiting vital organ transplants.” But there is still a simple and profound part that Americans across the country can play in this challenge to reduce the organ waiting list. More than 90 percent of Americans support organ donation, but only a fraction are registered to donate themselves. Helping ensure that more people are aware of donation opportunities is a crucial first step. To register as an organ donor or learn more, go to www.organdonor.gov.

Honoring the toughness of a forgotten hero Story, photo by MC2 Eric Lockwood Naval History and Heritage Command Communication and Outreach Division

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – District leaders, military officials and veterans, as well as representatives from the Embassy of Canada honored a forgotten Medal of Honor recipient at St. Elizabeths Hospital Cemetery in Washington, D.C., April 29. Captain-of-the-Hold Joseph Benjamin Noil received the Medal of Honor for bravery in 1872 for actions while serving in the Navy. According to his citation, “Serving onboard the USS Powhatan at Norfolk, 26 December 1872, Noil saved Boatswain J.C. Walton from drowning.” But until today you wouldn’t know that from his tombstone. In fact, aside from his name, there is no mention of his deed – and even his name is spelled wrong. Likely because of a clerical error on his death certificate, the name on his headstone was originally engraved as Noel. Originally born in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Canada, Noil moved to America and enlisted in the Navy Oct. 7, 1864, in New York. He served his adopted country until March 18, 1867, whereupon he got out, but he reenlisted Dec. 18, 1871. It was during this enlistment that he earned the medal. Investigations carried out by Galyle Alvarez, Don Morfe and

Bart Armstrong of Medal of Honor Historical Society of the United States helped correct the 130-year-old oversight. Alvarez and Armstrong referenced the Powhatan deck log and found no mention of Noil’s heroism, but the day after Walton’s rescue, Capt. Peirce Crosby, commander of the Powhatan, acknowledged the bravery in a memo that was published in a Jan. 11, 1873, Army and Navy Journal. The memo states: “Sir: I have the honor to bring to the notice of the Department the gallant conduct of Joseph B. Noil, seaman, (negro), one of the crew of this vessel. The circumstances are as follows: On yesterday morning the boatswain, I .C.(sic) Walton, fell overboard from the forecastle, and was saved from drowning by Joseph B. Noil, seaman, who was below on the berth deck at the time of the accident, and hearing the cry ‘man overboard,’ ran on deck, took the end of a rope, went overboard, under the bow, and

caught Mr. Walton, who was then in the water, and held him until he was hauled into the boat sent to his rescue. The weather was bitter cold, and had been sleeting, and it was blowing a gale from the northwest at the time. Mr. Walton, when brought on board, was almost insensible, and would have perished but for the noble conduct of Noil, as he was sinking at the time he was rescued.” Noil passed away March 21, 1882, at St. Elizabeths. Records indicated that a tombstone was ordered, but due to a typo on his death certificate, the error was later repeated on his headstone.

The purpose of the ceremony was to replace the headstone and to reflect on Noil’s heroism. For one person in attendance, the ceremony was personal. “I believe a thread runs through every family, and if we follow that thread it will explain where we come from, and show us where we’re able to go,” said Bernadette Maybelle Parks Ricks, Noil’s great-great granddaughter. “As someone said to me recently, they didn’t know he had a family. But now he has a vibrant gang of descendants. We love you. We thank you. And now you can rest in peace.” Speakers also included Chief

of Navy Reserve Vice Adm. Robin Braun and Canadian Defense Attache Rear Adm. William Truelove, CMM. “I can say that the people of Liverpool are profoundly honored to have one of their own bestowed with the Medal of Honor of which, to date, there are only 3,514 recipients,” said Truelove, also a Liverpool native. “This is a special day for Canada. This is a special day for the United States. This is a special day for those that we recognize.” Braun in particular was struck by the selfless regard Noil displayed for his shipmate, a word she holds in extremely high esteem. “Your shipmate is not simply someone who happens to serve with you,” Braun said. “He or she is someone who you know that you can trust and count on to stand by you in good times and bad and who will forever have your back. “So, by (...) rededicating his headstone, we are not only correcting a wrong, we are highlighting and reinforcing the eternal bond which exists between shipmates – past, present, and those yet to come. And, although I – or any of us – did not know him, we are his shipmates – and, 134 years after he passed, we have his back.” For more news from Naval History and Heritage Command, visit http:/ /www. navy. mil/ local/ navhist.

Vouchers accelerate advanced education for senior enlisted By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) Public Affairs

A

path to providing senior enlisted personnel with advanced education opportunities was announced April 26 via Naval Administrative Message (NavAdmin) 092/16, in the call for applications for the FY-16 Advanced Education Voucher (AEV) program. The AEV program offers post-secondary, Navy-relevant education at the baccalaureate and master’s level and provides financial assistance to chief, senior chief and master chief petty officers. ETCM(EXW/FPJ) Richard Simpson, enlisted education program coordinator for the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), said this program is a significant investment in the future of enlisted leadership, offering a fully-funded and rapid education. “For senior enlisted members interested in or pursuing advanced education in Navyapproved areas of study, the AEV program is an incredible resource,” said Simpson. “AEV offers the opportunity for accelerated degree completion as it pays for 100 percent of tuition, books and fees

up to a specified limit. Sailors currently on or transferring to shore duty and those at sea whose duty assignment will allow for degree completion during off-duty time should definitely apply.” Examples of approved, Navy-relevant degrees include: strategic foreign languages, construction management, security management, emergency and disaster management, human resources, engineering, information technology, nursing, and business administration, among others. Degree programs other than those specifically listed by the NavAdmin must be validated by the AEV program coordinator at NETC. Financial assistance for baccalaureate degrees covers 100 percent of tuition, books, and related fees up to $6,700

per year for a maximum of three years with the total program cost capped at $20,000. For master’s degrees, it provides 100 percent of tuition, books, and related fees up to $20,000 per year for a maximum of two years with the total program cost capped at $40,000. NCCS(SW/AW) Nikki Munoz, command career counselor for the Naval Special Warfare Development Group in Virginia Beach, Va., used the AEV program to get her bachelor of arts and master of business administration degrees from the University of Phoenix. “We are leading an exceptionally intelligent force in today’s Navy,” said Munoz. “In order to provide the most effective leadership, we must drive personal and professional development. The Navy offers programs such as AEV to meet those goals, and I advertise this program at chief petty officer career development boards.” Eligible applicants include E-7’s with no more than 17 years time-in-service (TIS), E8’s with no more than 19 years TIS, and E-9s with no more than 23 years TIS. TIS is computed to Oct. 1, 2016. At a minimum, baccalaureate program applicants must have an associate’s degree from an accredited institution of higher learning or the equivalent amount of college

credits already earned. Master’s program applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution of higher learning.

Iverson relinquishes command of VT-6 to Roberts Story, photo by Ens. Benjamin Ziemski NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

T

raining Squadron Six (VT-6) observed a change in leadership April 29, when Marine Lt. Col. Richard C. Roberts formally relieved Cmdr. Wade A. Iverson as the commanding officer of the Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF)-based squadron. Retired Navy Capt. Matthew Coughlin, a former NASWF commanding officer, served as the guest speaker for the event. The ceremony is a proud Navy tradition where the assembled officers, staff and crew may witness the official transfer of authority from one officer to another. Surrounded by the displays of naval aviation history throughout the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NAS Pensacola, the location was specifically chosen by Iverson to reflect the early push that directed his Navy career. Coughlin, who served with Iverson years earlier, reflected on that motivation. “There’s a reason this ceremony is here today. At this location, (Iverson) found his inner desire to be a naval aviator. Wade wasn’t like his peers, he carried himself a different way, peers quickly migrated to him, I

like to say he ‘got it’,” Coughlin said as he related examples of Iverson’s positive influence and leadership. “If this guy sticks around long enough, he’s going to command something,” Iverson received the Meritorious Service Medal from Training Air Wing Five Commodore Capt. Mark Murray during the ceremony. During his three years as executive and then commanding officer of VT-6, Iverson oversaw more than 49,000 flight hours, and passed 272 Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and allied naval aviators on to advanced flight training. Under Iverson’s command the squadron saw an increase of 20 percent in production while obtaining and surpassing fiscal year 2015 goals. His dedication to

Cmdr. Wade A. Iverson officially turns over command of VT-6 to Lt. Col. Richard C. Roberts. Iverson had commanded the “Shooters” from February 2015 to April 2016.

succeed led the command to develop a squadron culture based on safety and quality in training, not just of aviators, but of naval officers. After receiving the award, Iverson stepped to the lectern for the final time as commanding officer to thank those in attendance as well as the color guard, side boys, former squadron mates and mentors. Speaking specifically to the student aviators, he addressed the impor-

tance of officership as an aviator. “I wanted to be a naval aviator, not just a pilot, and there’s a difference,” he said. “The officer and the flyer, that’s what makes us who we are,” he said before reminding the audience of the value the squadron and training wing bring to the Navy and nation. “This wing is the greatest in CNATRA and it’s been an honor to be a part of it. No matter what community

(aviators), go to… it all starts here. The VTs are the first ones.” Iverson concluded his remarks, and then read the orders which formally released him from command. He and Roberts moved to the front of the stage where Len Agnello, a civilian logistician for the squadron, met them with the command pennant. Iverson received the flag, turned smartly, and presented the squadron’s colors to Roberts – symbolically passing command of the unit to their new commander. Roberts then spoke to the assembled VT6 team for the first time as their commanding officer. “If you believe VT-6 is a good squadron, commit yourself to making it great; if you believe it is great, commit yourself to making it the best, and if you think VT-6 is the best squadron there is, as I do, then help me maintain its reputation as the best,” Roberts emphasized during his remarks. Following Roberts’ comments, Murray presided over Iverson’s retirement from the Navy following 20 years of dedicated service. Following Roberts’ ascension to commanding officer, Cmdr. Kevin Murphy replaced him as VT-6 executive officer.

April, Month of the Military Child, celebrated at NASWF By Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Across the Department of Defense, April is celebrated as Month of the Military Child to show appreciation for the sacrifices military children make in support of their parents’ defense of the nation. Military children face unique challenges that many other youths do not experience, including frequent moves or extended parents’ absences. According to the Department of Defense Education Activity, the typical military child will move six to nine times during their school years. That’s about three times more often than their nonmilitary counterparts. The Month of the Military Child (MOMC) recognizes the critical role children play in the armed

forces community and honors their contributions. With nearly two million military children, the Navy and Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) understand the importance of providing services to children as they transition with the families. “The challenges that military children face are often not apparent and we may not be aware of an upcoming or recent transitions. Assisting military children in feeling accepted in a new environment can ease the transition. Supportive programs allow providers and community members to support military youth in a variety of ways,” said Julie LaRow, a clinical counselor with NASWF Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC). NASWF held a Family Day April 2 to help showcase some of their services to the family while hosting the kids to a

fun morning of activities. The event included bounce houses for children, various yard games, indoor crafts, a cookout and refreshements. More than 20 families attended the event and FFSC is planning to make it a semi-annual event with family days in the spring and fall. “We want to include more families and help them understand the services we have to offer,” FFSC Director Sharon Boggs said. In addition to local support through the FFSC, there are several military resources available to help families with children lessen the stress of deployments and transitions. Military children can get some of the support they need through the Military Kids Connect web site (http://militarykidsconnect.dcoe.mil/) where they

will have an opportunity to build a network of friends they can access wherever they go. Children can also receive non-medical counseling support through their nearest installation. Another resource is Military One Source (http://miltaryonesource.mil/) which includes information on services and scholarships for military children as well as general scholarships based on the students’ attributes, the parent’s military service or other qualifiers. “Military children make real sacrifices, show great resilience, and provide an example for us all in finding ways to overcome life’s challenges. These children are strong and their ability to adapt to present and future changes deserves respect and admiration,” NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau stated.

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 the contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month throughout May. The Navy encourages commands to embrace this year’s national theme “Walk Together, Embrace Differences, Build Legacies.” This year’s three imperatives serve to promote equal representation and to remove barriers in developing diverse leaders, acknowledging the challenges that still exist today. Today, there are 24,500 Asian American and Pacific Islander Sailors serving in the Navy, including eight admirals and 235 master chief and senior chief petty officers. These Sailors represent more than 56 ethnic groups, speaking more than 100 languages from Asia and the Pacific Islands, living in the United States. Asian American and Pacific Islanders of various

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.

NORU wins at CNIC Captain’s Cup By MC3 Brandon Martin Navy Recruiting Command Public Affairs

M

ILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – Navy Recruiting Orientation Unit (NORU) placed first in the 2015 NAS Pensacola leg of the Commander, Navy Installations Command Captain’s Cup held March 4. The CNIC Captain’s Cup is an annual athletic tournament designed to increase morale and encourage competitiveness among Sailors by providing them with the opportunity to represent their commands. NORU, Navy Recruiting Command’s schoolhouse, participated in all 21 events and took first place in five events, second place in three events, third place in three events and fourth place in three events. “This is both (a) humbling and rewarding experience but it’s not by accident that we won,” said NCCS Hollis W. Kelly, Captain’s Cup coordinator for NORU. “Our team applied the same strategies and principles that we do for everything in Navy Recruiting Command. We zeroed in on our goal, rallied our team together, inventoried our resources and then executed our plan to accomplish our over-

all objective of making mission and bringing home the cup.” The competition consisted of sports such as swimming, softball, bowling, darts, corn hole, volleyball and table tennis. While the competition allows Sailors the opportunity to hone their skills as athletes, the overall goal of the tournament is to build camaraderie and promote physical fitness among Sailors. “This victory would have been impossible without the support of every person at NORU,” Kelly said. “Winning the 2015 cup is great because it echoes some the same messages of teamwork, persistence, and esprit de corps that we are conveying to our new recruiters going to the field for the first time.” Each registered command competes in small tournaments throughout the year to

Johnson rescued two injured soldiers and brought them to safety before he was fatally wounded while returning for a third comrade. He was the first Escambia County resident to die in the Korean War. Johnson received the Purple Heart posthumously Aug. 21, 1950. At the time of Johnson’s death, Pensacola beaches were racially segregated. After the Korean War, the county-owned recreational area was renamed to honor the fallen hero at the suggestion of the Sunset Riding Club

Inc. The club leased the land in 1950 from the county for the sole use of bathing, beach and recreational facilities for “colored citizens.” Although the lease was canceled in 1956, the name Rosamond Johnson Beach remained. The area became part of Gulf Islands National Seashore May 8, 1973. A permanent monument in his honor was erected at Johnson Beach on June 10, 1996. Every year, the Perdido Key and Pensacola communities spend a day on Johnson Beach with its citizens and Johnson’s family, honoring the memory of Pvt. Rosamond Johnson Jr. This year, the event is being sponsored by Pen Air Federal Credit Union. For more information, go to VisitPerdido.com.

If you can’t make it tonight, the association also has several other upcoming events to offer. Here is a list: • Mercury will pass directly between the Earth and the sun on the morning of May 9. The transit will start locally about 6 a.m. (sunrise) and end about 1:30 p.m. with Mercury leav-

Telescopes will be set up outside the Pensacola State College Planetarium to view and photograph the event. • Other Fort Pickens gazes at the Battery Worth picnic area are planned for June 3, July 1, Aug. 5, Sept. 2 and Sept. 30.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. 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 chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
