Laser pointer warning ... Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) has noticed a recent increase in the number of incidents involving laser pointers

being aimed at aircraft. Pointing lasers at aircraft can not only temporarily blind pilots, but cause permanent damage as well. The canopy Plexiglas magnifies the intensity of the laser, which can compromise the vision of pilots and even require medical treatment. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 Section 311 amended Title 18 of the United States Code (18 U.S.C.), Chapter 2, § 39, § 39A, states that it is a Federal crime to aim a laser pointer at an aircraft. The crime is punishable by a fine up to $250,000 and five years’ imprisonment. State and local Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) will enforce the policy and will deter, detect, immediately investigate, and as appropriate, pursue enforcement actions to stop unauthorized laser strikes.For more information, contact the NASP Public Affairs office at 452-4436 or 452-4466.

Memorial ceremony at Eglin honors fallen EOD techs

By Billy P. Martin Explosive Ordnance Disposal Public Affairs Officer

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. (NNS) – Naval School Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NAVSCOLEOD) hosted the 49th annual Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Memorial Ceremony at the EOD Memorial May 5. The EOD community from each of the joint services gathered to honor the memory of 326 heroes, including over 130 since Sept. 11, 2001, and add EOD technicians to the EOD Memorial next to the Kauffman EOD Training Complex on Eglin Air Force Base (EAFB). “Every year we gather to commemorate all the EOD technicians who have lost their lives while serving our coun-

try,” NAVSCOLEOD Commanding Officer Capt. Charles Andrews said. “This year we will add 12 names to the wall from warriors who served during World War II, Vietnam and Grenada. While we do not have any EOD technicians who have lost their lives this past year, it is not lost upon us that our job is still inherently dangerous and we still have many Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed and serving in many different parts of the world today.” Those added to the memorial this year include: • Army Cpl. Norman Reynolds, killed in action on Aug. 17, 1944 while serving in World War II • Army Pvt. Joseph T. Seredinski,

CIWT cryptology courses undergo ACE review By MC2 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

Members of the American Council on Education (ACE) visited the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) to evaluate six cryptology courses offered by the Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station, May 1 to 2. The team reviewed five courses related to the cryptologic technician (technical) (CTT) rating as well as the Cryptologic Warfare Officer Basic Course. Their review included an examination of each course curriculum as well as interviews with enlisted and senior

enlisted CTTs. ACE recommends equivalent college credits for members of the armed forces for certain types of military training and service experiences, based on high quality standards of practice. They provide a collaborative link between the Department of Defense and higher education through their evaluation process. “We want to make sure our Sailors our getting their skills reflected as college credits that will help them not only advance professionally, but also help them along the path to success when they transition to the civilian world,” Denise Meyers from See ACE on page 2

Advancement System (NEAS) website. During Advancement Examination Readiness Reviews held at NETPDC, visiting E-7 – E-9 fleet subject matter experts (SMEs) in each enlisted rating ensure all examination questions can be linked to cur-

rent references and publications. As rating SMEs select questions for the examination, an examination bibliography is developed for that specific cycle’s exam, based on the source references for the questions on See Cycle on page 2

Shields, director, Joint ImprovisedThreat Defeat Organization (JIDO), served as guest speaker, reflecting on the extraordinary efforts and critical traits of these EOD heroes, the EOD mission and the immeasurable sacrifice of their families. NAVSCOLEOD’s service detachment commanders and senior enlisted placed a wreath next to their respective service’s cenotaph on the EOD Memorial while a fellow service member read the

names of their fallen EOD heroes aloud. They concluded with the phrase “We Remember,” signifying the very essence and ethos of EOD technicians to never forget the extraordinary efforts of EOD brothers and sisters who paid the ultimate sacrifice. The respective service senior general or admiral then presented a flag, previously flown over the EOD Memorial, to each of the families. Staff members from all four services at NAVSCOLEOD, as well as members of the EOD Warrior Foundation, coordinated and executed comprehensive preparations for the ceremony. The EOD Memorial Foundation, established in 1969, merged with the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation in March 2013 to form the EOD Warrior Foundation, which combines the missions and resources of these established organizations to increase the capacity to serve and support the joint service EOD community. “Today we add 12 new names to the EOD Memorial wall, a memorial that ensures our fallen EOD warriors who have made the ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten,” Nicole Motsek, EOD Warrior Foundation executive director said. “The warriors added today, and the 326 before them, are heroes, and it is an honor and privilege to preserve their legacy on this beautiful memorial, as well as to provide

CIWT’s training directorate said. “We ensure that our courses are up to date with the latest industry requirements and what they are learning is relevant outside of the Navy as well.” ACE occupation reviews are focused on validating the Navy’s job standards and expectations. Before the interviews begin, faculty evaluators review the occupation description, occupation standards, job task analysis and manuals used on the job. A final report that outlines the consensus on the alignment of credit recommendations for the occupation is usually completed by the ACE team within 30 working days of the evaluation. The credit recommendations determined by ACE appear on the service member’s Joint Services Transcript (JST). Each of the ratings taught at CIWT receives an ACE evaluation every 10 years at a minimum. “By ensuring these courses are ACE accredited, the commands have the opportunity to develop a more knowledgeable workforce,” Evelyn Howard, ACE associate director said. “Because our recommendations are reflected on the JST, that can be used by service members who are leaving the military to show exactly what your military career has consisted of and how that can be applicable to the job.” Center for Information Warfare Training delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

support to their families.” On April 15, 2014, the Okaloosa County Board of Commissioners officially proclaimed the first Saturday in May as “EOD Day” in honor of the memorial ceremony. The first Saturday of every May represents a sacred time for the EOD community to reflect and remember the heroic actions of fallen EOD Warriors. The EOD Memorial stands as a monument to the honor, courage and commitment exemplified by EOD technicians from the joint services as they performed the EOD mission. The EOD badge and its three levels (Basic, Senior, and Master) became the standard for all services in the 1950s. To this day, the EOD badge remains the only badge in the military identical to all branches of the armed forces. This unique distinction reflects the vital role of NAVSCOLEOD in training joint EOD warriors. NAVSCOLEOD, located on Eglin Air Force Base provides high-risk, specialized, basic and advanced EOD training to U.S. and partner nation military and selected U.S. government personnel each year.

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

Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented.

Is technology ruining our children’s lives? By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

A

t about eight o’clock each night, a little voice calls me. “C’mon,” it says, “it will relax you. You know you want it.” I tell myself I do not need it. I am perfectly fine, sitting here watching “House Hunters” reruns with my husband. But it is no use. I cannot resist the temptation. With trembling hands, I reach for my tablet, and jab the all-too-familiar icon. The screen comes alive with animated googly-eyed characters, bright primary blocks, flashing gold coins, polkadotted balloons and twirling rockets. I feel my heart quicken with a surge of excitement. When I run out of lives on Toon Blast, I click the Toy Blast icon. I switch back and forth between the two nearly identical games in an adrenaline-fueled frenzy until my daughter yells, “Mom! Are you listening to me?” my husband bellows at me to come to bed or my eyes bleed. Whichever comes first. A few years ago, I used to “tsk” at those “losers”

who would post their Candy Crush levels on Facebook. When my aunt suggested I try Words With Friends, I scoffed and condescended. I might gander at a New York Times crossword puzzle or flop down a round of solitaire, but I did not have time for silly apps. Now here I am, a grown woman, ignoring my children and husband while I poke at cartoon characters on my tablet like some kind of trained chimpanzee. How did this happen? According to Adam Alter, author of Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked (2017), tech executives are to blame for me being a Toon Blast junkie. Apparently, today’s industry big shots select apps based on how addictive they are. In fact, the tech industry is now being compared to American

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.themeatandpotatoesoflife.com. tobacco companies. In the 1960s, big tobacco execs realized that their customers’ chemical dependence was their products’ crucial selling point, but they did not publicly acknowledge nicotine as addictive until 30 years later. Today’s tech industry is being accused of the same kind of consumer manipulation.

In January, two big investors sent an open letter to Apple, citing the harmful effects of cell phone overuse on children, and calling on Apple to prevent such overuse through more parental controls. The research cited in the letter – and all over the internet – is nothing short of alarming. The letter, citing a study by Professor Jean Twenge of San Diego State University, stated that “U.S. teenagers who spend three hours a day or more on electronic devices are 35 percent more likely, and those who spend five hours or more are 71 percent more likely, to have a risk factor for suicide than those who spend less than one hour.” Another study published last month found that restricting bedroom use of smartphones was related to decreased risk of addiction, better focus, more satisfying relationships and overall happiness. A similar study found teenage girls at particular risk of depression and suicide from smartphone overuse. Some researchers have argued that digital technology is to blame for the delay in young people making socialtransitions such as working full-time, getting married and

becoming parents. Moreover, over half of American teenagers themselves admitted to “feeling addicted” to their smartphones in a 2016 survey by Common Sense Media. However other reputable scientists and industry insiders say that the research conducted thus far is inconclusive or flawed, and the worry over mobile device overuse is overblown. Some blame parents for not monitoring their children, while others cite studies showing that cell phone usage has actually benefitted young people socially. The only thing that is clear in this quagmire of sneaky tech executives, blame-deflecting parents and attentionseeking scientists is that, until there is unbiased research based on facts rather than fear or finances, parents have to use common sense in limiting their kids tech usage. All this analysis would normally induce cravings for a few mind-numbing rounds of Toon Blast, but one study I read could cure my addiction cold turkey: a global survey conducted by AVG Technologies found that 54 percent of kids feel unimportant when their parents are distracted by their mobile devices. Oh, the irony.

NMOTC provides Lean Six Sigma training Story, photo by MC2 Michael Lieberknecht Navy Medicine Operational Training Center

N

avy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) recently launched Lean Six Sigma (LSS) courses for Navy Medicine Sailors and civilians in the Pensacola area. LSS is a methodology that implements a team effort to improve efficiency by breaking down potential variables in a process to their smallest increments and working to reduce or eliminate any unnecessary steps or frivolous products. Navy Medicine adopted LSS at patient care and training facilities around 2006. Dedicated resources for LSS training were provided for the Pensacola training region for the first time in 2017. Each step in the path to mastering LSS is referred to by a different colored “belt,” similar to many forms of martial arts. LSS instructors will often refer to their students as “Ninjas” while those students are on the road to the final and grandest of LSS prestige, the “Master Black Belt.” Training begins with a White Belt introductory course, which

is an orientation describing LSS and its potential uses in Navy Medicine. LSS students may then advance to a Yellow Belt course, which takes the lessons learned in the White Belt course to a new depth of understanding. The next segment in training is the “Green Belt” course. NMOTC’s LSS Master Black Belt, Will Hernandez, recently wrapped up overseeing a weeklong Green Belt course, which he described as a “human problem-solving approach in systematic fashion that changes the inclination of placing blame and redirects focus to the LSS process.” After the week-long course, students remain working on at least two Green Belt projects of their choosing over the course of a year. The projects must be approved and regularly briefed and updated in order to be successful.

Dr. Wa-Muzemba Tshibangu, an instructor from The Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) Process Improvement Office, guides Sailors and civilians through a Lean Six Sigma course presented by Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC). LSS is a methodology that implements a team effort to improve efficiency by breaking down potential variables in a process to their smallest increments and working to reduce or eliminate any unnecessary steps or frivolous products.

“One of my projects I am working on getting approved is NMOTC’s check-in/check-out process,” YN2 Dylan Greene from NMOTC headquarters said. “I think it has a lot of potential to be streamlined and overall make the process and paperwork run more smoothly.” After a year of successful Green Belt projects, students can move on to the Black Belt course, which can be a valuable title to hold, especially in the civilian sector.

“Black Belt is highly sought after and is a sound methodology of looking at organizations and highlighting their potential opportunities,” Hernandez said. “With this foundation, this is probably the strongest and most direct link of establishing a highreliability organization.” By expanding and strengthening these LSS partnerships, Navy Medicine can be given the opportunity to identify and remove barriers, and produce a strategic framework, falling

directly in line with the Navy Surgeon General’s emphasis on partnerships. NMOTC is part of a health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide high-quality health care to more than one million eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ships, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

Navy’s newest LPD to be named in honor of Medal of Honor recipient By MC1 Raymond D. Diaz III

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer announced the Navy’s newest San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship will be named in honor of Navy veteran and Medal of Honor recipient Capt. Richard M. McCool Jr. McCool, a native of Oklahoma, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1944 and later served aboard Landing Craft Support (Large) 122 off the coast of Okinawa during World War II. “Capt. McCool served his nation with honor, distinction and an unparalleled sense of duty,” Spencer said. “His exemplary service in defense of our nation spanned 30 years and three wars. His legacy will live on in the future USS Richard M. McCool and his heroic actions will continue to inspire Sailors and Marines for decades to come.” On June 11, 1945, three kamikaze aircraft attacked McCool’s ship, leaving him temporarily unconscious. After

regaining consciousness, he began leading others in efforts to save the ship and rescue injured Sailors. On Dec. 18, 1945, President Harry S. Truman presented McCool with the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroism. He would later serve in the Korean War

and Vietnam conflict before retiring from naval service. As the 13th San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship, USS Richard M. McCool (LPD 29) will support amphibious assault, special operations or expeditionary warfare missions and can serve as secondary aviation platforms for amphibious ready groups. It provides the Navy and Marine Corps with modern, sea-based platforms that are networked, survivable and built to operate with modern-day transformational platforms, such as the MV-22 Os-

prey and amphibious assault vehicles. Richard M. McCool will be constructed at Huntington Ingalls Industries, Pascagoula, Miss. The ship will be 684 feet long, have a beam length of 105 feet and be capable of operating at speeds in excess of 22 knots. Ingalls Shipbuilding division received a $218 million contract from the U.S. Navy to provide long-lead-time material and advance construction activities for LPD 29, the 13th amphibious transport dock of the San Antonio (LPD 17) class.

NHP earns endoscopy award

tions that took almost two years to complete. Part of the qualification was to track colon polyps in 100 percent of colonoscopies performed at the hospital. Colon polyps are a small clump of

cells that form on the lining of the colon that could potentially develop into colon cancer. “Colon polyps are common and are usually found in 30 percent of men or 20 percent

of women,” Lt. Cmdr. Brent Lacey, gastroenterologist at NHP, said. “Not all polyps will develop into cancer, but we will remove polyps as necessary during a colonoscopy.” Approximately 2,000 colonoscopies were performed at NHP in 2017 between the Gastrointestinal Clinic and General Surgery. According to Lacey, less than one percent of those procedures indicated signs of colon cancer. “Like any cancer, it is best to catch colon cancer early because it can be treated,” Lacey said. “Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in both men and women.” Earning the certification required a lot of extra work and tracking data. The results from the colonoscopies had to be accurate for patient safety and all abnormal results had to be documented. Since NHP was the first naval medical facility to

assigned to IWTC. The services offered at the clinic include treatment for minor on-the-job injuries including sprains, strain, joint pain, minor cuts, blisters, insect bites and removal of stitches as well as upper respiratory infections, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The benefit of this type of care is two-fold. First, students and staff members can return to training and miss fewer hours away from their training. Second, appointments open up at the surrounding health care venues for those that require more extensive care, creating shorter lines

and more appointment availabilities. “Corpsmen have a unique learning experience when working within the clinic or hospital,” Lt. Maria Amoreth Gozo, a medical officer with Naval Branch Health Clinic Naval Air Technical Training Center, said. “Having a smaller clinic mimics fleet operations, not too dissimilar to that aboard a ship at sea. This type of interaction brings the Sailor piece back to the corpsman.” Surveys conducted across Corry Station have shown the positive benefits of the CCC across

a wide spectrum of patrons. Course supervisors and instructors have noticed the lack of impact on their schedules because students and staff members alike can be seen prior to the start of the workday. Prior to the opening of the clinic, Sailors would have to schedule an appointment that may be during class times. CCC allows students and instructors to receive the care they need without missing valuable instruction time. “Most of our patients need quick fixes, a cold pack or a quick bandage,” HM3 Sujay Brown, a corpsman with NHP as part of

According to the American Cancer Society, colonoscopies should be performed at the age of 50 for both men and women. Anyone with a family history of colon cancer should inform their physician during their next visit. The gastrointestinal clinic and general surgery can perform colonoscopies for all TRICARE beneficiaries, including TRICARE Select, but a referral from a primary care manager is required. TRICARE Select beneficiaries can check on the availability of colonoscopies and other services at NHP by contacting the Health Benefits Office at 505-6916.

the CCC, said. “We don’t tie up providers in the branch clinic here, and those patients are quickly returned to their place of duty and are satisfied with the care they received.” No one wants to be sick, hurt, or injured, but receiving timely treatment alleviates the exacerbation of pain and suffering. Returning to training with the proper treatment helps students and staff regain focus. Coughing throughout a lecture is not conducive to learning, but receiving quick treatment to ease the distraction helps everyone attending the lecture.

NASWF Sailor places second in international martial arts competition

By Lt.j.g. Luke Rague NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Staff

A

n active-duty enlisted master-atarms stationed onboard Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) placed second in the World Kickboxing Association Asian-Pacific Championships, an international K1/Glory style Pro-Am Event at the Third International Thai Martial Arts Games and Festival in Bangkok, Thailand, March 12 through 22. MA2 Sebastian Rivera participated in the competition as a member of Team USA, earning the silver after a loss to teammate Michael Carson. Rivera won his first fight against Italy’s Corrado Rubwo with a second round technical knockout. He then won by forfeit when Bangladesh’s Yahsam Hajih backed out after watching Rivera knockout Rubwo, advancing Rivera to the finals. Rivera’s trip to Bangkok was the result of years of training and development as a competitive fighter, earning him an invite from Team USA to compete in the pro-am level competition. Muay Thai has roots in Muay

boran, a fighting style that was developed by an eighteenth century Siamese solider named Nai Khanomtom. Nai Khanomtom was captured by Burmese forces in 1767 and offered the chance to fight in hand-to-hand combat to earn his freedom. Winning the fight, he was released back to Siam where he was treated as a war hero and master martial arts instructor. Muay boran remained loosely structured until it was given official equipment and rules in the 1930s, starting the sport of Muay Thai. Rivera’s draw to Muay Thai was an unexpected change from his initial goal of a fighting ca-

reer in the more popular sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). “I became interested in Muay Thai because of how unrelenting the sport really is,” he said. “My intentions were to compete in MMA with a solid base in striking, but I fell in love with Mauy Thai and decided to focus strictly on that art.” Rivera previously spent time training in other martial arts disciplines, studying Jujitsu and Judo. But for the past three and a half years, Rivera has focused almost solely on Muay Thai. He believes it has helped him both professionally and in his personal life. “Mauy Thai has brought a calmness to my life,” Rivera explained. “Knowing I don’t have to fight every battle, it has helped me with patience as well. Being in the law enforcement field, I think my training will allow me to control many situations if things get physical. It has also allowed me to under-

stand there is really no need to become violent.” Raised in Cutler Ridge and a graduate of Homestead High School in the suburbs of Miami, Rivera has strong roots in the state of Florida. He has participated in local fights in Crestview and he won his first title fight, the International Kickboxing Federation Welterweight Title, July 23, 2017, in Orlando. Rivera has also competed throughout the country in the pro-am circuit up and down the East Coast, in New York, Delaware, Virginia and South Carolina. Still, he was eager to fight and explore new places, especially internationally. So when Team USA gave him the opportunity, he jumped at it. After getting permission from his chain of command and completing an overseas medical screening, Rivera was ready for an experience of a lifetime. “Thailand was wonderful.

I enjoyed the food, how inexpensive everything is, how kind and polite the people are,” Rivera said. “My favorite part of Thailand was experiencing the fight life. Every single night there was an event where fights were being held, from live national broadcasted events to local stadium events.” The only part of the trip that Rivera didn’t like was leaving. But he returned with more experience and a better perspective on how to succeed in future competitions. “I realized my actions prepping me for competition, as difficult and exhausting as they already are, need to be improved,” Rivera said. “I am experimenting with my meal plan to promote a well-rounded diet. I have altered my workout plan to focus on my weaker areas. After competing alongside high-level fighters and coaches, and hearing them tell me I have what it takes to make it, I know I have the skillset to go far in this sport.” The suggestions and encouragement from everyone he trained with are driving Rivera to aim higher and work for invitations from bigger organizations, such as Lions Fight Promotions, Glory Kickboxing, and Bellator Kickboxing. “Training is always on the agenda,” Rivera said. “I have my whole year planned out. I plan on fighting in Delaware, Georgia, North Carolina, Orlando, South Carolina, Spain and even locally. I would like to turn professional soon, but I will not rush myself.” Rivera also plans on staying in the Navy. With nine years in already, he plans on serving at least 20 years and pursuing the limited duty officer (LDO) route from enlisted to officer. Either way, he looks forward to future sea duties.

About the Navy League of the United States: The Navy League of the United States was founded in 1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt. The group is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational and advocacy organization that supports America’s sea services – the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and U.S.flag Merchant Marine.

N

ational Military Appreciation Month started as a simple idea: to gather America around its military family to honor, remember, recognize and appreciate those who serve and have served with an appreciation for history. Legislated twice, this idea continues to evolve experiencing increased national attention and recognition. From www.nmam.org

The first legislation (S.Res 33) began in 1999 by the United States Senate designating May as National Military Appreciation Month. With the support and sponsorship of U.S. Sen. John McCain and U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter, along with more than 50 veteran service organizations, this legislation states to service members an entire month is set aside to honor, remember and appreciate their patriotism and dedication from their families. In April 2004, more comprehensive legislation was passed by unanimous consent of both houses of Congress as H. Con. Res. 328, which solidified May as National Military Appreciation Month. It also reminds the president of the United States to issue annual proclamations calling Americans to recognize this special month through appropriate ceremonies and events. The military continues to play a major role in the development

Word Search: ‘Thanks to you’

of the United States chronicled through history of unbending honor, dedication to duty and genuine love of country. Alarming to some is that younger generations sometimes distance themselves or lack awareness of the service given by Americans. Schools seem to rarely teach crucial military events, causing youth to lose connection with American history. Names and phrases such as Pearl Harbor, San Juan Hill, the Civil War, the Continental Army, the 38th parallel, the Berlin airlift, the Tet offensive and Normandy continue to lose their significance within the general

American population. Because of this, American Military History Month has been combined into May’s Military Appreciation Month, encouraging educators to develop lesson plans that will highlight the history of each military branch. As many holidays have become marketing avenues to distract focus on its original purpose, May reminds everyone of the sacrifices and the history Americans have been privileged to participate in throughout the past 240 years. Through appropriate means and incentives, federal, state and local governments and private sector entities are invited to participate in this special month

and to encourage everyone to sponsor and participate in programs via multiple venues, giving the nation a time and place upon which to focus, draw attention and express appreciation and thanks to the military family. Due to military deployments worldwide protecting national interests, Americans are asked to serve. And employers are asked to accommodate these lengthy absences adding demands on the employees. The military’s members represents the highest caliber of professionalism and patriotism and are asked to willingly risk their lives on a moment’s notice. In May, the nation recognizes their contributions and the sacrifices of their families.

VFW post promises fun and relaxation ... Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 706 would like to invite all current military, retired veterans and all veterans to stop by and visit the post. There will be karaoke Thursdays and Saturdays, from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m., plus many other events. The post is located at 5000 Lillian Hwy. near the post office.

Flag officers visit CIWT, observe and discuss IW Training Story, photo by Glenn Sircy Center for Information Warfare Training

L

eaders from major information warfare (IW) commands visited the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) recently. Leaders included Rear Adm. Timothy White, commander, Cyber National Mission Force, U.S. Cyber Command; Brig. Gen. Stephen Hager, deputy commander of operations for the Cyber National Mission Force; and Rear Adm. Gene Price, commander, Naval Information Forces Reserve and reserve deputy, Naval Information Forces. Following a meeting and training discussions with CIWT leadership, the flag officers commenced their tour of Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station, CIWT’s largest training command. During the tour, they visited several classrooms and spoke with instructors and students from each course. “This was a great opportunity for IW leadership to directly observe our agile, responsive, and innovative training of the next generation of information warriors,” Capt. Bill Lintz, CIWT’s commanding officer said. “It was imperative for these top leaders to learn

about the breadth and scope of who we are and what we do, our challenges, and to witness the commitment and passion our instructors and staff have forging students into highly skilled, operational and combat-ready warfighters.” The group first visited the Joint Cyber Analysis Course (JCAC), which trains Navy cryptologic technician (networks) personnel and other service equivalents in the skills and knowledge required to perform technical network analysis in the functional areas of cyberspace operations. Next on the tour were the courses for the information systems technician and other cryptologic technician ratings. The tour concluded with a visit to the various officer training courses onboard, and throughout the day, White shared his thoughts with students and welcomed candid dialogue with questions and discussions. “I thank you all for your service, and I’m excited you

Timothy White, commander, Cyber National Mission Force, U.S. Cyber Command shares feedback with students attending the Joint Cyber Analysis Course at the Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station.

volunteered to become part of something special – an amazing team that works together to affect positive change,” White said while meeting with students throughout the tour. “You should always strive to build strong partnerships, become the expert, distinguish yourself alongside your peers, and utilize multidimensional thinking to find problems and opportunities.”

“It’s always great to have top leaders personally share their vision and request our feedback like Rear Adm. White has today,” Lt. Forrest Bush, a student in the Afloat Cryptologic Manager Course said. “I feel this helps us to evolve and stay relevant in today’s everchanging information warfare landscape.” Center for Information Warfare Training delivers trained

information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

Lionfish removal incentive program

The third annual Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day will be held May 20 to 21 and will feature a new incentive program for participants. At a previous Commission meeting, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) gratefully acknowl-

edged $25,000 in charitable donations. These funds will go to the Fish and Wildlife Foundation of Florida and will be used as cash prizes for a new and novel lionfish removal incentive program, rewarding harvesters who find and remove lionfish previously tagged by FWC staff. Lionfish are a nonnative invasive species that can reduce native fish populations and

negatively affect the overall reef habitat. This program will run May 19 through Sept. 3, and will coincide with the annual summerlong Lionfish Challenge, which rewards recreational and commercial lionfish harvesters with prizes for submitting their lionfish removal efforts. “The FWC could not be more thankful and excited about the rallying efforts to draw attention to the important lionfish issue,” FWC Commissioner Bo Rivard said. “The control of nonnative lionfish populations has always been a group effort, and what these companies and organizations came forward with to help encourage removals is simply outstanding.” The goal of the 2018 taggedlionfish removal program is to increase statewide removal efforts by giving divers a greater incentive to harvest lionfish more often while in search of the valuable tagged fish. Additional non-cash prizes are also available for those who harvest and submit a tagged lionfish. The program also will provide FWC with valuable data on the movement of lionfish. Approximately six to eight lionfish will be tagged at each of 50 randomly-selected public artificial reef sites throughout the Atlantic and Gulf between the depths of 80 and 120 feet. Participants will have access to the reef locations at www.Reef Rangers.com.
