Memorial Day message from Commander, Navy Region Southeast ... “Shipmates, Memorial Day affords us an opportunity to honor the men and women who died while serving their country in the United States armed forces. Please pause for this coming observance to give heartfelt thanks for their sacrifice and sincere appreciation for the blessings we enjoy as a result. Memorial Day weekend also starts what is traditionally the busy summer season, a time of increased driving and recreational activities for most CNRSE personnel and their families. I want you to enjoy the summer season, but I want you to enjoy it with an increased vigilance about safety ... Please enjoy the weekend, but I ask each of you to evaluate the risk involved with your activities, especially those involving alcohol.

Naval hospital UCC opening June 1 By Jason Bortz Naval Hospital Pensacola PAO

On June 1, the emergency room at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) will be converted into an Urgent Care Center (UCC) that will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The UCC will be available to all TRICARE beneficiaries to include TRICARE Prime enrolled at the hospital, TRICARE Prime Network, TRICARE Standard and TRICARE For Life. Veterans enrolled in the Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care System have not been authorized by the VA to use NHP’s UCC and should contact their VA healthcare team for their urgent care needs. Eligible beneficiaries will be able to visit the UCC for acute care symptoms such as minor lacerations and injuries, fevers, sore throats and cough. Beneficiaries enrolled with a Medical Home Port Team at NHP or one of its local branch clinics are highly encouraged to contact their Medical Home Port Team before vis-

iting the UCC. “The Medical Home Port Teams know their patients best because they see them on a regular basis,” said Capt. Maureen Padden, commanding officer, NHP. “Having continuity of care with the same team of healthcare professionals is a huge benefit to our patients enrolled here because there is a relationship established between the team and patient, which leads to trust and better overall care. Our beneficiaries now have better access to care through their Medical Home Port Teams than ever. We offer same day appointments and a team of healthcare professionals dedicated to the care of our patients.” After June 1, emergency services at NHP will no longer be available. TRICARE beneficiaries in need of emergency services should visit one of the local ERs or call 911. Examples of types of emergencies that should be seen at an ER include chest pains, stroke-like symptoms, difficulty breathing or head traumas.

NASP Memorial Day events include service, crawfish boil By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

Formal and fun activities are on the schedule for Memorial Day at Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). A memorial service is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday at Barrancas National Cemetery to commemorate the military men and women who died serving their country. The gathering is scheduled to take place at Committal Shelter A in the annex section of the cemetery. Members of the Gulf Coast

Veterans Advocacy Council are presenting the ceremony with assistance from the NASP public affairs office and the cemetery. As is tradition, Boy Scout volunteers plan to decorate all of the graves with small flags. Lt. Col. Eurydice S. Stanley, who recently retired from the Army National Guard, will be master of ceremonies.

Award-winning author Tom Ruck will give the keynote address. Ruck’s book, “Sacred Ground, A Tribute to America’s Veterans,” focused on sacrifices made by American veterans and all royalties from sales of the book go directly to the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund. Ruck grew up in the St. Louis area and now resides in Southern California.

The ceremony also will feature special colors presentations, a roll call of deceased veterans, a two-bell ceremony, taps and a benediction. Officials at the USO Northwest Florida have the fun covered. They are throwing a Memorial Day crawfish boil for troops aboard NASP. The organization is anticipating that 300 people will attend the authentic, Louisiana-style event complete with all the fixings, live entertainment and activities all day long.

“Our focus this month is aimed to really emphasize to the community that there is such a thing as Military Appreciation Month,” said USO Northwest Florida Director Heidi Blair. For more information USO activities, go to www.uso.org/ northwestflorida. Other Memorial Day observances include: • The Veterans Memorial Park Foundation of Pensacola has scheduled a Memorial Day

During this year’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), I’ve had the opportunity to attend several events that reflect the military’s commitment to stand united to prevent sexual assault. At one such event in the Pentagon, advocates from each service shared their experience and advice on combating sexual assault and how the issue affected them personally. The speakers and those attending signed a proclamation committing them to taking a stand against sexual assault. This event highlights the benefit of the joint approach services are taking to stop sexual assault within our ranks.

Sexual assault is not an issue unique to any one service or the military itself, but something that the nation as a whole endeavors to stop. We are collaborating across the services, and even in the civilian sector, and sharing our best practices to engage the entire military community in creating an environment where sexual assault and harassment are not tolerated at any level, from the commanding officer down to our newest recruits. To set standardized DoD training requirements for Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARC) and victim advocates , we created the Defense Sexual Assault Advocate Certification Program (DSAACP).

Now, I can appreciate being stuck in Philadelphia By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

E

arlier this month, in an ironic twist of fate, I spent Military Spouse Appreciation Day stuck in the Philadelphia airport for hours trying to get back to Rhode Island. It all started when I flew to Norfolk, Va., to be the keynote speaker at a luncheon honoring the nominees for 2014 Military Spouse of the Year. Arriving early to find my bearings, I could not help but notice that emblazoned on every banner, place card, name tag, balloon, gift bag and program was the phrase “Heroes at Home.” As I found my seat at the head table, I wondered if anyone thought it was inappropriate to use the term “hero” in connection with the husbands and wives of military servicepersons. After all, it is the men and women in uniform who follow orders, report for duty, and put themselves in harm’s way to serve this country. The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines are obviously heroes. But we military spouses are at home leading everyday lives. Does everyone appreciate the heroism in that? Hoping the Caesar salad

from lunch was not lodged between my two front teeth, I took my place behind the podium after being introduced. The crowd of more than 250 – military spouses and their active-duty mates – looked to me with hope in their eager eyes. Will she make us laugh? Will she inspire us? Will she make us feel like heroes? Will she bore us to tears? The pressure was on. Hiding my trembling hands behind the podium, I began the speech that I had rearranged at least a dozen times in the weeks leading up to the event. Rehearsing alone in my shower had not given me any idea of how this crowd might receive my words. I hoped it would not be a flop. A few giggles erupted in the back when I threw out my first joke. They were not sure if I had intended to be funny. The second joke prompted an even rumble of chuckles. By the third joke, I heard undeniable

Like a shot of adrenaline, the crowd’s laughter fueled my desire to make these military folks – my folks – feel good about themselves. I had relied heavily on my scribbled notes

when rehearsing, but now that we trusted each other, I did not even need to glance down. And I knew I had them. We all laughed a while longer, about the little things we military spouses do to cope with managing the home alone: chocolate, bad reality television, spontaneous driveway happy hours, and – my personal favorite – secret cans of Pringles stashed under the seat of the minivan. But I knew I had to get serious. “Each military spouse copes with stress in his or her own way, but we all have one very important thing in common,” I said as a hush fell over the room, “we all love a military service member. We love that our spouses sacrifice to serve their country. We get misty when we hear the national anthem or see a flag unfurl. We live this life with a common sense of patriotism, and we know that despite the inevitable hardships, military life is worth living because, not only is it an ‘adventure,’ it is honorable.” “The sense of duty that drives active-duty service members also drives their spouses. Regardless of the hardships, we are deeply proud to be military spouses and hon-

ored to live this uniquely challenging way of life.’ “Certainly, the men and women in uniform here today are heroes. But,” I continued, gesturing out over the podium to my fellow spouses, “it is because of your dedication, your hard work, your uncommon strength, and your service to this country, that all the military spouses here today are undoubtedly ‘Heroes at Home.’ ” The next day, after missing my connecting flight in Philadephia and being told that I was not guaranteed another flight out for more than eight hours, I saw a sign for the airport USO. Isn’t that just for service members? Will I be allowed in? Lugging my bags through the maze of corridors and moving walkways, I followed the signs. “Welcome to the Liberty USO,” an elderly volunteer blurted as I entered their office space. After checking my military dependent ID, the friendly retiree explained to me that I was welcome to home cooked food, lounge furniture, movies and Wi-Fi. “Everything is free,” he said with a smile. Despite the fact that I was stuck in Philadelphia, I found a place where I belonged and it felt great to be appreciated.

Naval Survival Training Institute sets standard of excellence in training From NMOTC PAO

or service members, civilian employees and individuals attached to what has become known as the cradle of Naval Aviation, one facility – affectionately termed the “glass palace” by its employees – over the past several years – remains a unique landmark on the Naval Air Station Pensacola skyline. But despite its unique appearance – a two-story windowed facility with views of Pensacola Bay, Bldg. 3860 serves as an integral part of any enlisted or commissioned naval aviator’s training pipeline, a testament to the unwavering principles the Naval Survival Training Institute (NSTI) has held dear for years. A component of the NAS Pensacola-based Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) and with BuMed as the training agent, the Naval Survival Training Institute (NSTI) is the sole point of safe, effective and relevant aviation survival and human performance training as the execution arm of the Chief of Naval Operations-mandated Naval Aviation Survival Training Program (NASTP), according to NSTI officer-in-charge Capt. Matthew Hebert. “We exist to ensure pilots, aviators, NFOs (naval flight officers) and other individuals in-

volved in manning U.S. Navy aircraft are trained, educated and aware of the importance of water survival and aviation physiology,” he said. Hebert said NSTI consists of a headquarters element at NAS Pensacola, and oversees eight Aviation Survival Training Centers (ASTCs): Patuxent River, Md.; Norfolk, Va.; Cherry Point, N.C.; Jacksonville; Pensacola; Miramar, Calif.; Lemoore, Calif.; and Whidbey Island, Wash. He added the importance of each of these facilities – and the dunkers at each (a device used to simulate a water crash in which students are submerged and must exit the vehicle while underwater, upside down and blindfolded) – underscores the commitment of the NASTP as a force enabler in assisting the warfighter in winning the fight, preventing losses due to mishaps and hostilities and ensuring survival of all mishaps and hostili-

ties “Our ASTCs offer intensive water survivability programs,” Hebert said. “Students participating in any of our water survival courses will experience – in a very realistic manner – what a water landing could be like.” NSTI’s training is designed to enhance the operational readiness and survivability of the joint warfighter – including designated joint and allied aviators and aircrew, student aviators and aircrew, contract pilots, selected passengers, project specialists, VIPs and USMC non-aircrew. Hebert said that naval aviation survival training emphasizes mishap and accident prevention, enhancing and sustaining performance and mishap survival. “The key to naval aviation’s continued success is training, plain and simple,” he said. “From the time a Sailor or officer begins their Navy career in aviation, they are constantly training, learning everything they can about what can be a very dangerous job. As part of this training and education pipeline, we make sure they’re well-versed in being able to survive a waterborne mishap.” The two major elements of NSTI’s curriculum – both centered around enhancing survivability – include aviation physiology training and aviation water survival training. Hebert said that the eight ASTCs under NSTI trained more than 19,000 aviation professionals and joint combat warriors in high-risk aviation survival training, something he attributed to the 260 commissioned and enlisted serv-

ice members and civilian employees administering the training curriculum. “The Sailors and officers staffing these ASTCs and headquarters are committed to ensuring they continue to provide the top-notch training for which NSTI has become known,” he said. “These men and women

roviders and corpsmen rush into the room assessing the situation that is unfolding as the monitors blare out an alarm. Thankfully, this was only a training exercise at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP). The Command Education and Training (CEAT) Department at NHP is in charge of facilitating training requirements and needs of the hospital staff. “We take care of all the staff-essential training at the hospital,” said HM2 Joal Brown, leading petty officer, CEAT, NHP. “There is a lot of training out there that some people just don’t know about. We facilitate getting training information out to the staff and tracking the compliance and completion of that training.” The CEAT Department also ensures that all training conducted throughout the hospital is compliant with the set standards. “If every department in the hospital did their own training, then they would not be getting trained the same way,” said Brown. “We unify that training across the board so that everyone has the same training.” The department is a one-stop shop for all the staff’s training needs. It conducts operational training like tactical casualty combat care as well as resuscitative medicine like basic life support, advanced cardiac life support and pediatric advanced life support to name a few. One of the ways training is accomplished is through the use of NHP’s Simulation Lab, which is an automated lab with electronic training

mannequins that can simulate real people by blinking, breathing, moving their eyes and even speaking. “It’s true-to-life training,” said Cmdr. Joseph Gomez, department head, CEAT. “This helps to teach people how to react in certain situations. If someone wants to do a certain procedure, we can replicate various scenarios (and patient presentations) utilizing the mannequins.” The lab is completely electronic, so the training team can track everything being done to the mannequin, from how long it took someone to find the issue to whether they did the procedure correctly. “Any situation we think we could possibly see in the hospital, we can (create) it in the simulation lab,” said Brown. “Our staff can conduct training on many different situations without risk to anyone.” Another one of the CEAT responsibilities is orientating new personnel to the hospital. Upon checking into the hospital, all new personnel must attend command orientation. During the three days of training, personnel learn what is expected of them and what they can expect from the command. Orientation also covers information about the surrounding area such as the places that are off limits, schools in the area, programs available to the Sailors and their families and other pertinent

information. Always looking for new ways to educate and train the staff at the hospital, the CEAT Department has implemented a pilot program called Hospital Corpsman University. The program stemmed from observations by Capt. Maureen Padden, commanding officer, NHP, during visits to all of the Navy’s Medical Treatment Facilities and Marine Corps Battalion Aid Stations in 2011 and 2012. She recognized that training for corpsmen had changed over the years and that corpsmen needed more hands on clinical training when they arrived at their first duty station. “HMU is an outstanding program,” said Brown. “There is not as much hands on (training) taught at (Hospital Corpsman School) these days because it’s mostly computer based. When they get to us, students have that book knowledge, but are a little (deprived

of) the physical portion.” The HMU program was conceptualized with the CEAT staff to assess what impact inserting hands-on training would have on new corpsmen arriving to the hospital. The result was a nine-month course that rotates 14 corpsmen each training cycle through different areas of the hospital to allow them the ability to get hands-on experience in multiple clinics. For now, HMU is only a prototype program, but the outcomes could lead to other HMUs across the Navy. When asked about the importance of a department dedicated solely to training, Brown had this to say, “It’s a very big asset to the hospital. We manage the training to make sure everyone is up to date with requirements that can easily go by the way side with the busy schedule everyone has here.” For more news from NHP, go to, www.navy.mil/local/nh_pensacola/.

Sinram assumes command of HT-8 Story, photo by Jay Cope NASWF PAO

T

he assembled officers in ranks observed the time-honored ceremony of one officer handing the reins of command to another as Helicopter Training Squadron Eight’s (HT-8) commander stepped down and his executive office assumed the top spot. About 300 officers, family and friends watched as Cmdr. Robert G. Sinram relieved Cmdr. Matthew J. Bowen of duty as HT-8’s commanding officer during a change of command ceremony May 9 at 1 p.m. in the Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) atrium building. Adm. Harry Harris, Commander U.S. Pacific Fleet, served as the guest speaker for the event and he recognized the importance of holding a change of command in front of the troops to witness the passing of the command pennant from one officer to another. “This ceremony, and all it represents, is not simply one of our most cherished and important traditions, it represents the continuing recognition, indeed celebration, of who we are and what we truly value as a Navy – the exercise of command – the absolute nature of accountability, and the art of leadership,” Harris said. Harris accepted the invitation to speak at the HT8 change of command ceremony because Bowen previously served as his deputy executive assistant while he was deputy Chief of Naval Operations for communications and networks. Bowen was also part of the admiral’s transition team as he moved

across the globe to Naples, Italy, to be commander of the Sixth Fleet. Harris has kept tabs on Bowen’s career ever since, and has been impressed. “From the time Matt took command, he set out to build a high performance squadron, a squadron that was immediately and easily identified as a winner, a squadron with a reputation of achievement and success, a squadron that adjusts to change on its own ... with its eye on the future, even as it focuses on the mission at hand,” he said. “By any standard, under Matt’s leadership, this squadron is a high performance machine, it’s not just HT-8 after all, it’s ‘HTGR8.’ ” With Bowen in command, HT-8 earned the Chief of Naval Operation’s Safety Award and also received an “outstanding” from the Chief of Naval Air Training Flight Instructor Standardization Training (FIST) Team, the only squadron in Training Air Wing Five to do so.

These awards culminated with HT-8 winning the Vice Adm. Robert Goldthwaite Award for Training Excellence. This award is dedicated annually to the top Navy Training squadron and HT-8 claimed first out of 17 such squadrons. When Bowen took command of HT-8, he sought to make it great, stating, “I never wanted any in my command to feel or be ordinary.” “I have been congratulated multiple times this week for the awards,” Bowen continued, “but these awards don’t just belong to me, they belong to the IP’s, students, crew and staff members that were able to flourish as a result of a great command climate.” Bowen’s will be leaving NASWF knowing that he successfully accomplished the goal he set out on when he initially took command. Bowen’s next set of orders will make him the air boss of USS Bataan (LHD 5). Sinram takes command

of HT-8 after 17 years of naval service. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Sinram earned his aviator wings after completing primary flight training with VT-6 and advanced rotary wing with HT-18 at NAS Whiting Field in 1999. In the intervening 14 years, he flew the CH/HH46D “Sea Knight” with the HC-11 “Gunbearers.” Sinram deployed twice to the Persian Gulf in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom before he transitioned to the MH-60S, with Commander Helicopter Tactical Wing, U.S. Pacific Fleet (ComHelTacWingPac), where he was a fleet replacement squadron instructor at HSC-3 “Merlins.” He was instrumental in the formation of Commander Helicopter Sea Combat Wing, U.S. Pacific Fleet (ComHSCWingPac) during the

Navy’s helicopter reorganization. Assigned to the USS Peleliu (LHA 5), Sinram served as the V-3 division officer and aircraft handling officer during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. He then joined HSC-21 “Blackjacks” and again flew missions in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. His last tour before joining HT-8 was as assistant deputy director of operations for the Joint Staff; senior emergency actions officer; and presidential strike adviser on Operations Team Four, National Military Command Center. Sinram was excited to receive the command pennant and exchange salutes with Bowen before he finally stepped up to the lectern as commanding officer. While the title is correct, Sinram emphasized

the importance of the staff, instructors and students to the mission with a slightly different moniker. “Today I feel like I have been designated team captain, and that is one hell of a team standing behind you,” Sinram said. “We are fortunate to have a great bunch of students who take pride in wearing the HT-8 patch. I am lucky to have a phenomenal civilian staff of 11 that provide the continuity and expertise to keep the production machine running ... To the instructor pilots, on a daily basis I am both at awe and inspired at what you accomplish. You heard the accolades, it is obvious the IP, civilian staff and aircrew put the extra effort into their jobs ... It is a privilege to lead this team.” Cmdr. John D. McBryde will replace Sinram as executive officer for the squadron.

• Personal motor vehicle • Alcohol awareness • Water safety • Sexual assault • Suicide awareness

Summer 2013 overview – private motor vehicle (PMV) and off-duty/recreation mishaps. The good news: • 30 percent decrease from five-year average. • 21 percent decrease from previous year. • Half as many motorcycle fatalities as previous year. • All categories (PMV, motorcycle, pedestrian and recreational/off-duty) all below five-year average. The bad news: Between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2013: • 16 Sailors and • 10 Marines lost their lives. • Five were alcohol-related (three PMV, one pedestrian, one recreational/off-duty). • 20 PMV mishaps. • 10 of these were motorcycles. • Also two pedestrian deaths – both on highways. • Four died during recreational activities. • Two drownings (apartment pool and lake). • One fall from a balcony. • One ATV wreck. The impact: • 26 trained and ready Sailors and Marines are no longer with us. Who’s at risk: E-3 to E-5. • They make up 58 percent of all Marines and 50 percent of all Sailors. However, they made up 85 percent of last summer’s fatalities (PMV, off-duty/recreational).

If it seems like the potential perpetrator is trying to isolate your shipmate (offering him or her a ride, inviting him or her to their home, etc.) go with them. • Cause a distraction. Make up an excuse to get your friend get away from the potential perpetrator (e.g., “I think I lost my phone. Can you help me look for it?” Or, “I was thinking of grabbing some food, want to go?”) • Direct approach: Talk to your friend to ensure he or she is doing OK. Pull your shipmate aside and say you think the situation is dangerous. Point out the potential perpetrator’s disrespectful behavior in a safe manner to de-escalate the situation. Recommend to a bartender or party host that potential victim or perpetrator has had too much to drink. • Involve others: Grab a friend or two before speaking with the potential perpetrator. If the situation seems to be escalating, call the police. For more, go to www.safehelpline.org.

Weather permitting, visitors will be able to explore the night sky with volunteers from the Escambia Amateur Astronomers’ Association (EAAA). Members plan to have several telescopes set up for public viewing of the stars, planets and constellations. A sky interpretation program will also be presented. Tonight’s gathering is part of a series of regular programs that are scheduled to continue through the summer and fall at three different locations. Scheduled programs include: • Gulf Islands National Seashore Superintendent Dan Brown has announced that a stargazing program will be presented from sunset to 10 p.m. today, May 23, at the Battery Worth picnic area at Fort Pickens. Other sky interpretation programs are scheduled for June 27, July 25 and Aug. 22. The programs are free; however, there is an $8 entrance fee to Fort Pickens. For additional information about the Fort Pickens stargaze or other programs offered at the park, call the Naval Live Oaks Visitor Center at 934-2600 or go to www.nps. gov/guis. • Pensacola Beach officials have announced several upcoming stargazing sessions at Gulfside Pavilion. Scheduled dates are June 6 and 7, July 4 and 5,

Aug. 1 and 2, Sept. 5 and 6 and Oct. 3 and 4. The programs will start at sunset at varying times throughout the summer based on daylight. For a closer look, video cameras will also be used with telescopes to display images on monitors up to 100 times more clearly than viewing through the telescope with your eye alone. For individuals who would like to continue stargazing on their own, free star charts and sky calendars will be available. Free parking is available in the Casino Beach parking lot, near the beach ball water tower. For more information, call 932-1500. • “Evening Under the Stars” programs are scheduled from sunset to midnight June 21, July 19, Aug. 16, Sept. 20 and Oct. 18 at Big Lagoon State Park, 12301 Gulf Beach Highway.

Clear skies permitting, members of the EAAA will set up telescopes and binoculars to capture views of the moon, planets and other celestial objects. The gazes will be presented at the East Beach picnic area, near the observation tower. Participants must enter the park prior to closing time, which is sunset. The front gates will be locked at that time. The gazes themselves are free; however, normal park entry fees of $6 per vehicle do apply. Sunset times change throughout the year, so visitors should check ahead of time to find out when the front gates will be locked for the evening. For more information, contact the ranger station at 492-1595 For more information about the Escambia Amateur Astronomers Association, go to www.gulfweb.net/rlwalker/ astronomy/.
