USO celebrates renovations at airport center Story, photo by Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

The next time you visit the Pensacola International Airport, be sure to check out the changes at the USO’s Flight Deck lounge. You can sit in a comfy chair and watch a 60-inch flatscreen TV or hang out and enjoy snacks made in the new kitchen. Other upgrades at the lounge, which has been expanded to 1,200 square feet, include new carpeting and computer stations. Guests including Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward got a first look at the newly remodeled facility on May 18 when officials gathered to celebrate the grand reopening. Navy Capt. Chris Plummer, commanding officer of Naval Air Station Pensacola, was impressed. “I think it is a fantastic change,” he said. “I travel around the country frequently, and whenever I pass a USO I will stick my head through the door and take a look around. And I can tell you, that this is the nicest one I have ever seen. It is just a gem in the airport, and really directly reflects Pensacola’s support for the military.” The USO operation, which serves 2,400 military personnel a month and is a gateway to the community, was well worth the investment, Airport Director Melinda Crawford said. “This is a great day for this airport,” she said. Heidi Blair, director of USO Northwest Florida, is very happy with the work done at the airport, and she said a similar remodeling project at the USO’s Recreation Center aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola is scheduled for completion by late June. The USO, which stands for the United Service Organization, is a non-profit charitable corporation that provides morale, welfare and recreation services to military personnel. The renovations are the results of Operation HOPE, an eight-month fundraising project initiated by the Leadership Pensacola (LeaP) Class of 2012, a program of the Greater Pensacola Chamber. Both facilities were in significant need of renovation and repair, according to

Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP) coming to NASP From Navy Region SE and DoN

The Department of the Navy (DoN) is aggressively pursuing conservation initiatives that will reduce the dependence on foreign oil and other fossil fuels. One of these initiatives attempts to achieve reductions in the amount of utilities consumed in our Navy/Marine Corps public private venture (PPV) housing projects. These projects are of particular interest because the service members residing in them typically consume significantly more utilities than their civilian counterparts residing in the local market. The prevailing opinion is that the main reason for this disparity is that residents of PPV housing have paid a flat rate for their utilities (which are included in their basic

allowance for housing (BAH), regardless of the amount they consume. This flat rate system provides no financial incentive to conserve. To address this problem and promote conservation, the Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP) is being adopted. The program transfers some responsibility for utilities costs from the PPV partnership to the residents consuming the utilities. It accomplishes this objective by charging the residents for usage above the levels deemed to be normal for their geographic location and housing type and by rewarding residents for conserving utilities by issuing rebates to them when their utilities consumption is below certain target levels. Since the

passionate about both topics for a reason – she has worked on highway fatality investigations and seen lives saved because of safety belts. “Active-duty personnel need to be aware safety belts are required on and off the installation at all times,” Riley said. For civilians, the requirement for mandatory

seat belt use applies while aboard the installation per OpNav 5100.12H. Florida’s seat belt statute applies to all operating on state roads. Riley has observed on recent occasions both service members and civilians engaged in cell phone conversations while driving on

initial training, he transferred to Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 367 (HMLA-367) for his first fleet tour and completed two deployments to Okinawa. He then transferred to HMT-303 as an instructor pilot (all phases of training) and functional check pilot in the AH-1J. Moving to Quantico, Va., in 1989, Davis was assigned to the staff of the Marine Corps Air Facility as the assistant logistics officer and airfield operations officer. During this tour, Davis volunteered for duty with HMA-775 for Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. After returning to Quantico, he attended intermediate career level training at the Amphibious Warfare School. Upon graduation, he transferred to HMT303 for transition training into the AH-1W Super Cobra helicopter, with a follow-on assignment to the Vipers of HMLA-169 as the assistant operations officer. While deployed with HMLA-169 to Okinawa, Davis joined the H-1 detachment to Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 262 (HMM-262) aboard the USS Belleau Wood (LHA 3). Upon returning to California, Davis joined the operations department of MAG-39 until his departure from active duty in 1994. Davis was commissioned into the U.S. Navy Medical Service Corps in December 1995 and attended the Officer Indoctrination School in January of 1996. He transferred to the Naval Operational Medicine Institute (NOMI) and was winged as an aerospace physiologist in October of 1996. In 1997, he graduated from the Navy’s aviation safety officer course and was assigned to Training Air Wing Five as the aeromedical safety officer (AMSO). In 1999, he transferred to the Naval Aviation Survival Training Program model manager office and served as the deputy director. During this tour, Davis completed his graduate degree in aeronautical science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and was selected to be a dual designated aerospace physiologist/naval aviator. Davis transferred to the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory (NAMRL) in 2001 as the assistant department head for spatial orientation research and served a collateral assignment with Helicopter Training Squadron Eight (HT8) as an instructor pilot flying the TH-57 helicopter. Davis transferred to the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center (NSAWC) in 2003 as the AMSO and soon became the safety officer for an Echelon II command under a two star flag officer. Along with his NSAWC duties, Davis flew HH-1N Huey helicopters with the NAS Fallon search and rescue (SAR) Team earning the SAR mission commander qualification and was involved with numerous SAR and medical evacuation missions in the area. In 2006, Davis transferred to the staff of NAS Fallon as the assistant air operations officer (mini-boss) and continued his flight duties as a SAR mission commander. During this tour, Davis volunteered for an individual augmentee (IA) assignment and led a team of Navy electronic warfare officers (EWO’s) for the Third Heavy Combat Brigade at FOB Hammer, Iraq. After returning from Iraq, Davis continued his duties at NAS Fallon. In 2009, he transferred to the Naval Survival Training Institute (NSTI) where he is currently the assistant officer in charge and returned to HT-8 as an associate instructor pilot in the TH-57 helicopter. Davis’ awards include the Bronze Star Medal, Air Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Navy Commendation Medal with four gold stars, Navy Achievement Medal with one gold star, numerous unit and campaign awards, Expert Rifle Medal and Expert Pistol Medal. He has also earned his Basic Parachutist Badge from the Army’s Airborne Course and naval parachutist wings. Davis is married to the former Debra Deloach of Plant City. They have two adult children, Nichole and Jacob.

During this phase, mock bills will be issued to residents to transition them from the historic practice of not informing them of or charging them for their utilities usage, to the pending practice of holding them financially responsible for their usage.

However, as mentioned in the mock billing phase, the resident’s BAH is intended to include average expenditures for utilities specific to each unit type in each military housing area. The resident only incurs an out-of-pocket financial obligation when usage exceeds the amount determined to be the norm.

other people at risk who have not made that decision. “With texting, it is too easy to draw you into taking your eyes off the road for an extended period of time. If you need to, pull over somewhere to do it,” Winters added. The penalties are serious for either cell phone use or failure to use a safety belt on base. According to NASPNCLAINST 5560.5, “driving a vehicle without safety belts fastened” will get the driver three points; conviction of “driving while using a cellular phone to include speaking or texting without a hand-free set” will result in suspension of base driving privilege for 30 days. As we head into Memorial Day weekend, make safety belt use part of your daily plan – every day. And while cell phones are a part of life, bear in mind talking and driving could cost you more than roaming charges, especially on base.

NASP children watch eggs hatch to learn about chickens From the Fred G. Smalley Youth Center

The 4-H animal club at the Fred G. Smalley Youth Center aboard NAS Pensacola embarked on a chicken embryology project in March. The club leader, Delicia St. Jock, was able to get 12 fertilized white-bearded silkie eggs from Carter’s Legacy Farm in Loxely, Ala. St. Jock and the children at the Youth Center ensured that the eggs were turned three times per day and that the humidity and temperature was maintained in the still-air incubator. The children had to count down the days to see how many baby chicks would hatch. It takes an average of 21 days of incubation. Every day they would help to turn the eggs and would look at the chicken embryology poster to see what stage of the development process the chicks were in. After about seven days of incubating the eggs, the 4-H animal club candled the eggs to see how they were developing. Candling is a process where you hold a bright light near the egg in a dark room in order to see the contents of the egg. The children were very excited to see the development of the chicken embryo inside of the egg. They could clearly see the blood

rapidly. The children were able to hold them and play with them. Each week when 4-H animal club met, the children were able to see new development on the chicks. The club kept the chicks for three weeks. Then it was time to say good-bye as the chicks were ready to go to their new homes. “The children held them for the last time and did not want the chicks to go,” St. Jock said. St. Jock said the project taught the children the valuable lessons of animal care and the fragility of life.

Midway: A pre-battle chronology By Lt. j.g. Tim Mosso NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

J

une 4, 2012, marks the 70th anniversary of first day of the Battle of Midway. The three-day World War II engagement between the Imperial Japanese Navy’s Midway invasion force and the United States Pacific Fleet serves as a lasting testament to the sacrifices of the American servicemen who earned victory. The sequence of events in the build-up to the battle illustrates enduring lessons including the value of shared sacrifice, advance planning and flexible forces in successful military enterprise. The combatants, planners and civilian workers whose efforts culminated in the successful defense of Midway overcame incomplete information, a formidable enemy and severe time constraints. From the onset of war, Japanese Navy leaders, led by Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto, understood that resource-poor Japan needed to secure rapid victories and establish a defensive barrier before the resource-rich United States and its Allies could regroup. Japan could not win a protracted battle of attrition without conquering a permanent network of forward bases and natural resource caches. On April 6, 1942, the USS Hornet (CV 8) launched a raiding force of U.S. Army Air Force B-25 Mitchell bombers against targets in mainland Japan. The strike, led by Lt. Col. James Doolittle, was designed principally to boost U.S. morale, and it caused little material damage, but the psychological impact on Japan’s leadership was profound. Japanese planners, heretofore confident of the security of their home islands, were forced to reconsider their decision to prioritize expansion in the South Pacific. Hornet’s uncontested attack on the Japanese islands proved that American naval power remained capable of conducting offensive operations from U.S. bases to the east. Imperial leadership began to consider accelerating its plans for a drive to the east. In many respects, the May 4-8, 1942, Battle of the Coral Sea can be considered the dress rehearsal for Midway. Both battles involved U.S. Navy efforts to blunt Japan’s drive to consolidate a buffer zone and war-critical resources. At Coral Sea, Japan’s primary goal was to take control of New Guinea’s Port Moresby. The small but vital port represented a staging point that could be used as a forward base for resupply of Japan’s South Pacific forces with the ultimate goal of creating a permanent western defensive screen against Australia and British forces in India. The Battle of the Coral Sea produced two significant outcomes. Tactically, the battle validated naval aviation as an interfleet combat tool. Prior to Coral Sea, aircraft carriers had launched successful large-scale strikes at anchored vessels and isolated ships under way. However,

doubts remained about the carrier’s utility against fully-screened maneuvering targets in open waters. Pre-war aircraft carrier doctrine had emphasized the carrier’s role as a scouting tool and battleships were expected to act as the principal combatants during a fleet action. At Coral Sea, each nation’s carrierbased aircraft struck the decisive blows. Moreover, the battle represented history’s first large-scale fleet action in which the capital ships of each belligerent never sighted each other. The destruction of U.S. Pacific battleships at Pearl Harbor had forced Navy leadership to plan a theater defense strategy centered on the surviving aircraft carriers, all of which were absent from Hawaii during the surprise attack. While Pearl Harbor had thrust naval aviation to the forefront of U.S. Pacific defense strategy by default, Coral Sea proved that aircraft carriers were now the weapons of choice for open-ocean combat. U.S. naval aviators, support crews and ship handlers gained valuable experience in conducting carrier fleet actions, and Navy leaders were able to glean lessons concerning the effectiveness of carrier assaults in open waters. The second consequence of the Battle of the Coral Sea was the disruption of the integrated Japanese war plan. For the first time since its attack on Pearl Harbor, a major Imperial Japanese Navy offensive had been blunted. Port Moresby remained in Allied hands, and Coral Sea again reinforced Japan’s growing realization that U.S. naval forces remained a potent threat from the Eastern Pacific. Imperial planning for an eastern offensive, already accelerated by the Doolittle raid, became a top priority of Japan’s top military leaders. U.S. naval intelligence operations were making cryptographic breakthroughs concurrent with the Doolittle and Coral Sea operations. The Navy Radio Intelligence Unit was making meaningful headway toward breaking Japan’s military communication code, dubbed “JN-25.” Despite setbacks resulting from the loss of several Western Pacific stations to the Japanese advance, Navy intelligence reached a level of competence with the Japanese cipher on the eve of the Port Moresby invasion attempt. Prior to the engagements in the Coral Sea, U.S. cryptographers were able to establish the fundamentals of JN-25. When Japanese amphibious forces – supported by aircraft carriers – moved against Tulagi and Port Morsby, the Navy’s

defensive force was in place and ready to respond. For the first time since Pearl Harbor, the Navy was able to anticipate and pre-position itself to counter effectively a major Japanese offensive. Although the American naval intelligence was able to interpret most components of JN-25 by March of 1942, the individual codenames of Japan’s targets represented a code-within-a-code. Japanese planners guarded against codebreakers by assigning arbitrary alphanumeric designators to locations and installations of interest. U.S. cryptographers could decode JN-25 transmissions only to learn that nondescript entities such as “RXL” or “AF” were being targeted. During the spring of 1942, discussion of “AF” in particular began to flood Japanese radio transmissions. Through deductive logic, the Navy was able to discern the identity of this location. Navy authorities believed that Imperial planners were likely to set their sights on Midway, a key U.S. staging point at the extreme southwestern end of the Hawaiian island chain. U.S. signal intelligence officers launched a ploy to positively identify “AF.” Midway was ordered to send an unencrypted emergency transmission declaring that the water purification system had failed, and the base possessed only a two-day supply. Following the broadcast, JN-25 traffic to Imperial leadership revealed that “AF” was experiencing technical difficulties. Subsequent messages concerning force projection against “AF” included important details of an upcoming Japanese invasion plan. Thus informed, Navy leaders were able to position a three-carrier force for Midway’s defense. However, one of those three aircraft carriers, the USS Yorktown, almost failed to achieve combat readiness in time for battle. The American strategic victory in the Coral Sea was purchased at a dear cost. The Navy lost the USS Lexington, one of its most powerful carriers, and Japanese carrier aircraft inflicted massive damage on the USS Yorktown.

The fire, water and structural damage to the Yorktown was sufficient to have required several months to repair under peacetime conditions. Given the exigencies of war, a reasonable turnaround for redeployment of the Yorktown could have encompassed several weeks. Faced with an imminent Japanese offensive against Midway, American Navy and civilian personnel at Pearl Harbor made the Yorktown ready for battle within three days of her return from the Coral Sea. As the Yorktown sortied from Hawaii, many civilian yard employees were completing the final makeshift repairs, and they only left the ship after it departed U.S. waters. Although a historical footnote compared to the momentous events in the Coral Sea and the Navy breakthrough against JN-25, the repair of the Yorktown is emblematic of the indomitable spirit that primed U.S. forces for victory at Midway. The ability to overcome long odds, resourceful use of time and tools, and the vital contributions of home-front civilians embody the total war effort that sustained Americans through the early months of World War II. The first week of June 2012 will witness a series of commemorative ceremonies as U.S Sailors and Marines around the world honor the sacrifices of their forebearers and recognize the lasting relevance of Midway’s outcome to the modern armed forces. The Center for Information Dominance and Naval Air Station Whiting Field is inviting members of the public to join them as they pay tribute to the heroes of Midway at the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. The ceremony will be held in the museum’s atrium from 10 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 5. Highlights of the event will include a wreath-laying, a flyover by Training Air Wing Six aircraft and a keynote address by Rear Adm. Donald Quinn, Commander, Naval Education and Training Command. The memorial will be preceded by a Blue Angels performance rehearsal from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.

Pensacola training instructors graduate alongside international partners Story, photo by Steve Vanderwerff NETC PAO

Several U.S. Sailors along with sailors from Estonia, Namibia, Taiwan and Saudi Arabia graduated from the International Professional Enlisted Leadership (IPEL) course during a ceremony held onboard NAS Pensacola recently. It is the first time that U.S. Sailors, detailed to Naval Education and Training Command Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) International Training Center (NITC) as instructors, took the course as students beside their international peers. Their attendance was designed to give them the perspective needed to enhance their ability to teach the course. “NITC recently had four active-duty Sailors detailed to the schoolhouse as instructors. Their billets were created specifically for the course to augment NITC’s contracted civilian instructors. The IPEL course will benefit from the team concept of retired enlisted Sailors and Marines teaching alongside their activeduty counterparts. The extensive leadership experience of both groups will combine academic knowledge with up-to-date deckplate realities,” said Cmdr. Christopher Heaney, NITC’s officer in charge. “The true winners will be our international military students who will be immersed in concepts of leadership and how the Department of the Navy values its enlisted leaders.” Under the International

AMC Keith Tourney (left) and AE1 James Ridgeway (second from left) work with international students to overcome an obstacle at the Leadership Reaction Course onboard NASP. It is the first time that U.S. Sailors, detailed to NITC as instructors, took part in the course as students with their international peers.

Maritime Enlisted Leadership and Development Assistance (IMELDA) program, NITC designed the IPEL course. It first convened in the spring of 2009. Since then, NITC has graduated more than 70 students from 24 nations. “In the the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Sailor directions, he speaks about building and strengthening our partnerships and alliances where sea lanes, resources and vital U.S. interests intersect. That is what the staff here at NITC do, and what this course is all about. The United States Navy developed a multifaceted program of education, training, exercises and assist

visits,” said Paul J. McHenry, NITC’s deputy officer in charge. “NETSAFA created IMELDA to assist partner countries in developing and maintaining a corps of highly professional, superbly trained, and dynamic enlisted leaders.” Because of the numerous requests from various nations, NITC also offers a newly created leadership course for junior officers called International Professional Advanced Leadership (IPAL), which builds on the success of IPEL. “Using the lessons learned from the IPEL experience, IPAL will take leadership training and

professional development to the next level,” said McHenry. “The excellent training techniques combined with cutting-edge course curriculum will prepare today’s international enlisted and junior officer leaders for an expanded role in the complex and rapidly evolving military operations taking place around the world, and at the same time improve participating countries’ interoperability with the United States and other partner nations.” The five-week course is taught onboard NASP at the NETSAFA’s International Training Center. During their stay, the students are immersed in the

principals of military leadership, personality and human behavior, communications, teamwork, the legal aspects of military operations and decision-making in an operational environment. The course isn’t taught entirely in the classroom. Between lectures on leadership, decision making, international affairs, legal issues and understanding people better, the students were also given the opportunity to learn more about the United States and the American way of life by taking field trips to the USS Alabama (BB 60); viewing a Blue Angels practice; touring the National Naval Aviation Museum; and taking a historical tour of St. Augustine. The students also practiced teamwork and team-building skills on NASP’s leadership reaction course (LRC). Throughout the IPEL course, students were challenged to work together to overcome obstacles at the LRC. “IPEL is all about leadership and team building. We have students from all around the world and we learn from them, just as they learn from us,” said instructor Tim Fox. IMELDA is an enlisted education initiative that helps enable nations to strengthen their interoperability with U.S. forces, expand their role in maritime domain awareness and enhance their overall ability as a maritime force. It is designed to provide America’s international friends and allies with the necessary support to transform, strengthen and enhance the professional development and leadership of their petty officers and chief petty officers.

Santa Rosa County hosts annual Military Apprecitation Picnic at NASWF noon with the games and the bouncy houses, but they especially enjoyed the petting zoo – chasing and petting the ducks and chickens. MA1 Pratt praised the coordinators’ efforts in improving on an already popular event. “My wife said the event was even better than last year’s,” he said. “I went to Pen Air just to thank them for everything they did and for coordinating all the prizes, vendors and especially all the volunteers who did the work. It was a nice day for all the military guys to take it easy and have a really great day of fun.” The picnic was capped off with a concert by Pensacola-based cover band Superheroes. The

group played two short sets as alter-egos Doug Driggers, Austin Ingerman, Eric Mazzone, Matt McKinney and Sean Phillips, but played the final hour of the show as Flash, Robin, Green Lantern, Superman and Batman. The band played a variety of classic rock tunes ranging from “I Love Rock ’N’ Roll” to “Crazy Train.” As much as the picnickers enjoyed having the group play, the band liked being part of a military event. “It was a no-brainer for us to come. We dedicate a song to the military every show. We really respect our military,” lead vocalist Driggers stated. “Like we say on stage, ‘they are the real heroes.’ ”

With a bright, sunlit day, children dancing and smiling, abundant food and lots of games and prizes, Naval Air Station Whiting Field was a happy place May 18 as the Santa Rosa County community hosted its Military Appreciation Picnic. More than 100 sponsors, businesses and community volunteers combined to help make the annual event at the base a memorable affair. May is Military Appreciation Month and each year residents of Santa Rosa County come out in force to show their appreciation for the area military, retirees, govern-

ment employees and their families. “We have a passion for the military here,” said Krystal Kelly, a Pen Air Federal Credit Union employee who served as the coordinator for this year’s festivities. “They take care of our country, and this is our chance to do something for them. I truly don’t know of a better base where the military and the community are knitted together so tightly.” With estimates of more than 1,500 people attending, the picnic was the biggest yet. The NAS Whiting Field sports complex was filled with vendor tents, inflatable games for the kids, a project area, a petting zoo and of course, lots of

food. As in years past, Santa Rosa Medical Center provided the food for the event with members of the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office volunteering to serve as the chefs. Volunteers from Covenant Hospice even agreed to serve the food to the service members. Kelly appreciated all the support. “I would like to thank all the community volunteers. They really stepped up to take care of our military folks,” she said. The people who attended the picnic seconded that sentiment. MA1 Kenneth Pratt’s family, wife, Sarah, and kids, Gracie, 4, and Carleigh, 2; attended the picnic. The two girls enjoyed their after-

istory teaches that a lack of hurricane awareness and preparation are common threads among all major hurricane disasters. By knowing your vulnerability and what actions you should take, you can reduce the effects of a hurricane disaster.

The 2012 season’s extended range forecast of seasonal hurricane activity report from the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University was published in April. “We anticipate that the 2012 Atlantic basin hurricane season will have reduced activity compared with the 1981-2010 climatol-

ogy,” the report by hurricane experts Philip J. Klotzbach and William M. Gray’s noted. “The tropical Atlantic has anomalously cooled over the past several months, and it appears that the chances of an El Niño event this summer and fall are relatively high. We anticipate a below-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean. “However, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them, and they need to prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much activity is predicted. “We estimate that 2012 will have about four hurricanes, 10 named storms, 40 named storm days, 16 hurricane days, two major hurricanes (category 3-5) and three major hurricane days. “The probability of U.S. major hurricane landfall is estimated to be about 80 percent of the long-period average. We expect Atlantic basin Net Tropical Cyclone (NTC) activity in 2012 to be approximately 75 percent of the long-term average.” Onboard NAS

Trio earn top SoQ honors from NH Pensacola From Rod Duren NHP PAO

Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) selected its top Sailors of the Quarter (SoQ) in an awards luncheon recently that included a trio of enlisted personnel providing directcare to patients. HM1(FMF/SW/DV) Darrell Smith, leading petty officer for medical services and a cardiovascular technician, is the Senior Sailor of the (second) Quarter; HM2(SW) Taylor Tamayo, LPO for the obstetrics/gynecology clinic, is the Junior SoQ; and HM3 Christopher Lambrose, Navy Home Port Gold Team enlisted leader for family medicine, is Bluejacket of the Quarter. Smith assisted in the oversight and orchestration efforts in the implementation of the Navy Medical Home Port in family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics. Those efforts yielded superior outcomes while performing 115 percent of work load and increasing customer satisfaction to 90 percent. As senior cardiovascular tech, Smith was responsible for the performance and technical review of more than 400 cardiovascular tests performed monthly.

Smith “executed his leadership responsibilities with unusual fervor and determination,” said HMC Michelle Goodman. “He’s an exceptional leader, Sailor and corpsman who balanced his cardiovascular technician and LPO duties without flaw … (and) consistently demonstrated sound leadership ability, professional judgment and skillful resource management.” Smith was nominated for the Navy League’s annual community-service and achievement competition. He is vice president of the First Class Petty Officers’ Association. He has volunteered his offduty time in support of charities at both the Double Bridge Run and McGuire’s 5K Run; the NAS Pensacola beach clean-up; and at the Elberta Fire Department in Alabama.

HM1(FMF/SW/DV) Darrell Smith

Tamayo supervised 12 staff corpsmen in the daily operations of five health care providers. She guaranteed optimal patient care for more than 10,570 annual patient visits; and exceeded the clinic’s business plan by 33 percent. She interacts daily with providers and the division officer to quickly resolve problems at the lowest level; and additionally functioned as the “righthand” of the department

head assisting in planning, problem-solving and ensuring all assigned tasks to the clinic are completed efficiently. Tamayo “constantly emulates the qualities of a deckplate leader,” said HMCS Patrick Updegraff, “with the ability to motivate personnel toward task accomplishment.” Within the community, Tamayo volunteered to assist with VITA tax office filings for command personnel that resulted in $135,000 in refunds. She also has volunteered to assist at Beulah Elementary School and with Pensacola Little Theatre.

Bob Walker, age 67, representing the Navy Wellness and Family Fitness Center, rowed 1,107,911 meters. This is an average of almost 37,000 meters or 23 miles per day. That is the same as rowing from NAS Pensacola to the Perdido Key Bridge and back every day for 30 days. Cecilia Walker, age 65, who represented the Wenzel Fitness Center, kept neck and neck with her husband by rowing 1,102, 453 meters. “Ceci” eliminated all other athletic activities to focus on the rowing event.

Lambrose has shown extensive technical knowledge and advanced skills, said HMC Goodman, “establishing himself as the backbone of Family Medicine.” The corpsman is a “proven subject matter expert and has become a hub of knowledge and information to his subordinates and superiors.” In the community, he volunteered with the Habitat For Humanity Circle K 5K run to benefit cerebral palsy, led a churchsponsored delivery of food to 40 needy families and contributed at the NASP beach clean-up.

Summer concerts in the park have been a tradition for 25 years From Pensacola Heritage Foundation

Evenings in Olde Seville draws about 10,000 people to downtown Pensacola for free concerts every Thursday. The Pensacola H e r i t a g e Foundation started presenting the summer concert series 25 years ago. This year’s series started May 17 and will feature 12 concerts instead of the usual 14. The final concert is scheduled for Aug. 2. The concerts feature a variety of music ranging from jazz and country to rock ’n’ roll, big band, easy listening and reggae. But this could be the last year for the concerts. Officials at the foundation recently announced that this will be the last year that the foundation will present Evenings in Olde Seville because the project has gotten so big that it is keeping them from

their primary mission of preserving historic sites. Officials are hoping that another group will come forward to assume the responsibility for the popular concert series, which costs $50,000 to $60,000 a year. The foundation was established in 1964 by Mary Turner Rule. It is affiliated with the national and Florida trusts for historic preservation. It is the oldest historic preservation organization in the Pensacola area and it continues to pursue its mission of preserving and protecting P e n s a c o l a ’s rich history t h r o u g h restoration work, educational programs and community activities. The foundation’s first project was to restore a dilapidated home in downtown Pensacola to its original condition. That was the Dorr House, which is located on Seville Square. The foundation was also involved in the restoration of Seville Square and undertook the restoration of the Barkley House, which was its headquarters for more than 15 years. The foundation also hosts the ReDiscovery Lecture series featuring John Appleyard. All topics focus on Pensacola’s past, present and future.
