Elcano arrives in Pensacola Fiesta of Five Flags welcomes the Juan Sebastian de Elcano By Julie B. Connerley Special to Gosport

Spain’s iconic floating naval academy, the 371foot-long four-masted barquentine schooner, Juan Sebastian de Elcano, returned to Pensacola for the seventh time May 27. “We are honored to have the Elcano here in Pensacola and celebrate her heritage,” said Rear Adm. Mike White, commander, Naval Education and Training Command. “It is a unique opportunity for some of our Sailors and Marines who are here in training to see how other navies use a training ship. It is an invaluable experience to meet and learn from the exceptional Sailors aboard the Elcano.” As part of this year’s Fiesta of Five Flags festivities, the Elcano’s presence will help mark a special tribute to Gen. Bernardo de Galvez, who won the Battle of Pensacola 234 years ago. Galvez’ victory against the British troops

helped secure the 13 American colonies’ pursuit for independence. Galvez was granted honorary U.S. citizenship last December – one of only eight people to receive this distinction. “Pensacola and Spain have a special relationship that goes back more than 450 years, since de Luna first sailed into Pensacola Bay in 1559,” said Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward. “We are so excited to welcome back the Elcano, and to once again have the opportunity to celebrate our city’s rich history and Spanish heritage.” As the third-tallest tall ship, the Elcano functions not only as a symbolic ambassador, but as a training academy for Spain’s Royal Navy. Most of Spain’s Navy officers trained aboard the Elcano, including King Juan Carlos (as a prince in 1958) and his son, Crown Prince Felipe (1987).

First Unaccompanied Veterans Memorial Service held at BNC Story, photo by Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

They stood by this country, but when they left this world, there was no one to stand by them. Yet when they were laid to rest at Barrancas National Cemetery (BNC), a promise was kept. A service was held May 21 for a group of 10 homeless veterans, the first Unaccompanied Veterans Memorial Service to be held at BNC. Coming at the beginning of the Memorial Day weekend, the service was attended by NASP

Sailors, civilian personnel and a contingent of Patriot Guard Riders.

As NASP Honor Guard and BNC personnel took their places in the cemetery’s annex commi-

tal shelter “A”, a rumble of the Patriot Guard Harley-Davidson motorcycles filled the quiet grounds. Parking in neat rows, about three dozen riders unfurled cased flags, taking their places with the uniformed service members to surround the shelter in a veterans’ tribute. “We have a vision here at Barrancas (National Cemetery) that no veteran in our community should go unrecognized for their service because of their circumstances,” said Craig LaChance, director, Barrancas National Cemetery. “So we’ve decided to hold a memorial service and read a list

of names of those unaccompanied veterans who we’ve interred here so far this year.” “We hope that you’ll take this home with you and share this,” LaChance told the group. “And for our active-duty Navy, we hope that you see that our commitment to our veterans, and our veterans’ commitments to each other, continues on after you hang up your uniform.” Cmdr. David Gibson, a retired Navy chaplain, gave the service, during which he recalled the price of service paid by veterans. “We remember those who, for

Cadets attend a five-year Naval Military School at Marin, Spain. The first two-and-a-half years are spent in classroom study. Then, the entire class spends eight months aboard the Elcano – along with seasoned crew members – to learn the art of seamanship. The remaining academy time is split between classroom and serving on ships in the Spanish Navy. On this, the 86th training cruise, 76 midshipmen in their fourth academic year, and 14 candidates from the Ferrol Specialties School to become leading seamen are part of the crew. Pensacola is one of only two American cities which are ports of call for 2015. The ship will return to Marin, Spain in July. Built in 1927, the ship is named after the Spanish explorer who successfully completed the first ever circumnavigation of the world in 1519-22 with Ferdinand Magellan’s fleet. The ship’s coat of arms is a gold castle in a field of gold with cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and clove, crowned with the Latin motto circling a globe, “Primus circumdedisti me” or “The First Who Went Around Me.” While thousands of military personnel have trained at Naval Air Station Pensacola, none have been assigned to four-masted schooners where volunteers climb the “ratlines” (rope ladders connected to the masts which go aloft) to heights almost as tall as a 16-story building to help “let fall” or unfurl the sails. However, personnel assigned to NAS have had plenty of opportunity to enjoy sailing as Pensacola Bay is one of the nation’s largest natural deepwater bays. “Training officers promoted sports competition,” said Hill Goodspeed, historian at the National Naval Aviation Museum, “with the air station fielding football and baseball teams. The air station also had a small fleet of sailboats that cadets would take out during their off-duty hours. There are numerous photographs showing the sailboats being used in this manner.” The Elcano will offer free public tours May 2930 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 to 5 p.m. and May 31 from 3 to 5 p.m. (Tour dates/times are subject to change.)

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

The honor of restoring an icon: America’s ‘Ship of State’ By Sam Cox Director, Naval History and Heritage Command

M

aintaining USS Constitution’s “iron sides” secures a vital part of our nation’s great heritage. Since its inception, this ship has fought with and exuded honor, courage and commitment. She is a visible and viable symbol of the value of a wellconstructed and well-maintained U.S. Navy, and we cannot permit that illumination of history to be diminished by failing to properly protect her. That history includes: • 217 years of serving her country. Many of us know the story of USS Constitution. We know the battles she fought and won for our young country, we know how she came to earn her nickname “Old Iron Sides” and we know that she’s the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world. (If you don’t, let me be the first to introduce you to her history here.) She fought courageously with our Navy’s forefathers in the First Barbary Wars, The War of 1812 and trained Sailors for duty in the Civil War. Today, she serves

How to submit a commentary

the public in a much different way. • 108 years of hosting the public. In 1907, because of a public who so loved and respected her presence, USS Constitution was saved from the scrap yard and was put on display for all to see. She has served as such, opening her doors to the public in the Boston Harbor for 108 years. Her mission today is to preserve and promote U.S. Navy heritage by sharing the history of “Old Iron Sides” and the stories of the men and women who have faithfully served with distinction on the warship’s decks for 217 years. When a visitor steps foot on the deck of USS Constitution, he or she is making contact with the beginnings of the U.S. Navy, a navy that has kept the sea lanes free for more than 200 years. If ever you get the opportunity,

you should walk her deck, explore the ship and meet her Sailors; the incredible young men and women who give her life day in and day out. • 20 years since her last restoration. Just like any of the nearly 300 other commissioned warships in the Navy, Constitution needs to be properly maintained in order to fully carry out its vital mission. For “Old Iron Sides,” this means undergoing periodic restorations. Starting June 9, visitors to our iconic “Ship of State”

will get to see something remarkable – an active shipyard with craftspeople (blacksmiths, wood workers, etc.) working to make sure USS Constitution remains ship shape for future generations. The Constitution entered dry dock May 18 at the Charlestown Navy Yard in Charlestown, Mass. The restoration will last more than two years and marks the first time Constitution will have been dry docked since 1992. The ship will remain open throughout the restoration with

regularly scheduled tours. Today, when so many of our experiences are virtual, USS Constitution stands in Boston Harbor as a visual representation of the patriotism and dedication to the defense of the nation that began with our founding fathers. That same dedication and has been carried down through the centuries and generations, and this restoration period will not only maintain a ship, but the American spirit with which our Sailors serve around the world, around the clock to this day.

Hurricane Preparedness Week: May 24-30 #ItOnlyTakesOne From http://www.nws.noaa.gov/com

It only takes one storm to change your life and community. Tropical cyclones are among nature’s most powerful and destructive phenomena. If you live in an area prone to tropical cyclones, you need to be prepared. Even areas well away from the coastline can be threatened by dangerous flooding, destructive winds and tornadoes from these storms. The National Hurricane Center issues watches, warnings, forecasts, and analyses of hazardous tropical weather. Hurricane hazards: The primary hazards from hurricanes are storm surge flooding, inland flooding from heavy rains, destructive winds, tornadoes, and high surf and rip currents. While hurricanes pose the greatest threat to life and property, tropical storms and depressions can also be devastating. Flooding from heavy rains can cause extensive damage and loss of life. For example, Tropical Storm Allison produced more than 40 inches of rain in the Houston area in 2001, causing about $5 billion in damage and taking the lives of 41 people. Storm surge has the potential to cause the largest loss of life in hurricanes. Since 1963, storm surge has caused nearly half of the deaths in the United States in tropical cyclones. Water, not wind, has accounted for nearly 90 percent of all tropical cyclone deaths in the U.S. during that time. Storm surge is dangerous because a

mere six inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. It takes only two feet of rushing water to carry away most vehicles – including large pickup trucks and SUVs. Tornadoes are also common with landfalling tropical systems. In recorded history, almost every tropical storm and hurricane that has come onshore in the U.S. has produced a tornado. These tornadoes most often occur in thunderstorms embedded in the storm’s rainbands, well away from the center of the hurricane. Strong winds of a tropical cyclone can also cause dangerous waves that pose a significant hazard to mariners and coastal residents and visitors. When the waves break along the coast, they can produce deadly rip currents – even at large distances from the storm. In 2008, despite the fact that Hurricane Bertha was more than a 1,000 miles offshore, the storm resulted in rip currents that killed three people along the New Jersey coast and required 1,500 lifeguard rescues in Ocean City, Md., over a one week period. The time to prepare is now: What should you do to prepare for a hurricane? Get a plan. The most important step is to identify your hurricane risk. Do you live in an evacuation zone? If so, you need to plan on where you and your family would ride out the storm if you are told to evacuate. Most people only need to evacuate a few miles from the coast to avoid the dangers of storm surge. Find a friend or relative that lives outside the

storm surge evacuation zone and have a plan to ride out the storm with them. You should also establish a family communications plan in case you are not together when you need to evacuate. Once a person understands their risk for hurricane impacts, an appropriate disaster safety plan should be developed to help ensure an individual’s and a family’s safety. A disaster safety plan is a comprehensive plan that identifies all of the steps a family needs to take before, during and after a disaster to ensure maximum personal safety and property protection. For a step-by-step guide on creating a family disaster plan, see Florida’s “Get a Plan” guide. Citizens should also visit their State Emergency Management Agency websites for family disaster plan templates that may be more suited to a local area. Coastal residents should go to their local emergency managers for evacuation zone information. This information is typically available online. A county-bycounty list of evacuation zone resources is available at: http://flash.org/ hurricaneseason/ evacuation -zones/ Evacuation_Zone_Identification_Survey.pdf. Vital resources to help you prepare include: Hurricanes.gov, which provides critical hurricane advisories and marine forecasts. Weather.gov for the latest forecasts for your part of the country. Ready.gov for additional preparedness information.

These tornadoes most often occur in thunderstorms embedded in the storm’s rainbands, well away from the center of the hurricane. Strong winds of a tropical cyclone can also cause dangerous waves that pose a significant hazard to mariners and coastal residents and visitors. When the waves break along the coast, they can produce deadly rip currents – even at large distances from the storm. In 2008, despite the fact that Hurricane Bertha was more than a 1,000 miles offshore, the storm resulted in rip currents that killed three people along the New Jersey coast and required 1,500 lifeguard rescues in Ocean City, Md., over a one week period. The time to prepare is now: What should you do to prepare for a hurricane? Get a plan. The most important step is to identify your hurricane risk. Do you live in an evacuation zone? If so, you need to plan on where you and your family would ride out the storm if you are told to evacuate. Most people only need to evacuate a few miles from the coast to avoid the dangers of storm surge. Find a friend or relative that lives outside the

storm surge evacuation zone and have a plan to ride out the storm with them. You should also establish a family communications plan in case you are not together when you need to evacuate. Once a person understands their risk for hurricane impacts, an appropriate disaster safety plan should be developed to help ensure an individual’s and a family’s safety. A disaster safety plan is a comprehensive plan that identifies all of the steps a family needs to take before, during and after a disaster to ensure maximum personal safety and property protection. For a step-by-step guide on creating a family disaster plan, see Florida’s “Get a Plan” guide. Citizens should also visit their State Emergency Management Agency websites for family disaster plan templates that may be more suited to a local area. Coastal residents should go to their local emergency managers for evacuation zone information. This information is typically available online. A county-bycounty list of evacuation zone resources is available at: http://flash.org/ hurricaneseason/ evacuation -zones/ Evacuation_Zone_Identification_Survey.pdf. Vital resources to help you prepare include: Hurricanes.gov, which provides critical hurricane advisories and marine forecasts. Weather.gov for the latest forecasts for your part of the country. Ready.gov for additional preparedness information.

Family readiness: FFSC is here to help Story, photo by Ens. Margaret Gresham NASWF Public Affairs

W

hen asked what is the most important part of a military member’s life, family is usually the first answer. Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) and its Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) provide military members and their families the tools and resources to make the challenges of military life easier to handle. One challenge of military life is the frequent relocations required of families, this can cause stress and anxiety for everyone. The Family Employment Readiness Program (FERP) is designed to help alleviate some of the stress involved in relocations by helping military spouses and dependents secure employment at their new locations. The military spouse is mobile, and it can be hard for spouses to adapt to traditional civilian jobs that may not understand their need to relocate so often. Some jobs are not willing or are simply unable to accommodate spouses and relocate them to different areas. FERP is a program that helps spouses acclimate to their new area. It was created to help plan a career, launch a job search, write a resume, learn interview techniques, find information on federal employment, conduct self-assessments, set goals, and even take vocational tests. Darryl Johnson, the Work and Family Life consultant at NASWF FFSC, described why he feels giving spouses this opportunity is so important. “As a military spouse myself, I understand the importance of being able to work and help sup-

port my family,” he said. “Employment provided through the programs in FERP help to maintain a spouse’s self-esteem, lower overall stress in the household, and in many cases it allows spouses to increase quality of life.” One of the programs Johnson refers to is the Priority Placement Program (PPP) Program S and USA Jobs. This program applies to spouses of active-duty military members of the U.S. Armed Forces, including U.S. Coast Guard and full-time National Guard, who desire priority consideration for competitive service positions at DoD activities in the U.S. and its territories and possessions. To be eligible for this program one must be a spouse of an active-duty military member, and may register only if he or she accompanies a military sponsor who is: assigned by permanent change of station (PCS) from overseas to the U.S., or to different commuting areas within the U.S., relocating to a new duty station after completing basic or advanced training, assigned by PCS to a service school regardless of duration of training, a former military member who re-enlists and is placed directly

in a permanent assignment, or reassigned on an unaccompanied tour by PCS with orders specifying the sequential assignment. In addition to meeting those requirements, the marriage to the sponsor must have occurred on or prior to, the date of the military PCS orders or amended orders authorizing the spouse to travel as a dependent. To register for the PPP Program S military spouses must submit the following documents to OCHR Stennis via e-mail at OCHRSTE_PPP_SPOUSE@ navy.mil: Resume, college transcripts – if applicable, copy of spouses PCS orders, marriage certificate or license, SF75 information page, most recent performance appraisal, and most recent Standard Form (SF) 50 Notification of Personnel Action, which shows employee’s tenure. When you are matched in PPP as a Program S registrant to a vacancy being filled using a vacancy announcement, a human

resources professional will contact you to provide the vacancy announcement information. To apply to this program, Commander Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE) civilian job announcements are posted on the USAJobs website at http://www.usajobs.gov. The first step of the application process is to log in or create a USAJobs account. Once an account has been established, one can create their resume using the resume builder to help the process. There are step by step instructions that a local FFSC representative can walk through and explain once you are registered on the website. Johnson recommended that prior to PCS, you should contact the local and gaining FERP representative and let them know when the move is occurring and how they can assist. This allows the spouse to start a job search and get acclimated

to the new area before he or she actually arrives. They can get a forecast of the employment environment and the specifics of various jobs available. In addition to information about the PPP Program S and USA Jobs, spouses can contact the FFSC for information on how to apply for civilian positions within the DoD, and the Leave without Pay program which allows members to take leave up to a year during their job hunt. The military is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world, but in addition to the rewards comes challenges. NASWF FFSC can help you navigate those challenges and provide an easy and effective transition for military members and their families. For any other questions contact Johnson, Work and Family Life consultant, Fleet and Family Support Center (Darryl.Johnson2 @navy.mil), (850) 623-7177.

Story, photo from Fiesta of Five Flags Association

The 66th annual Fiesta of Five Flags celebration officially started May 27 with the surrendered of the city to the Fiesta forces. The Fiesta of Five Flags organization was formed to celebrate the founding of Pensacola. In 1559, Spanish conquistador Don Tristan de Luna established Pensacola as the first European settlement in the United States. Since that time, five different flags have flown over the city: Spanish, French, British, Confederate and American. With the help of many volunteers, the Fiesta organization plans and produces more than 20 events throughout the year. Here is a schedule of upcoming Fiesta events: • Fiesta Prayer Service, 10 a.m. tomorrow, May 30, at Basilica of St. Michael the Archangel, 19 North Palafox St. A traditional ecumenical service. The public is invited to attend. • Centennial Imports Fiesta Boat Parade, tomorrow, May 30. Boats are scheduled to set sail from the Pensacola Yacht Club at 1 p.m. The parade of more than 25 marine vessels will start at the mouth of the Bayou Chico Bridge and will make its way to the Quietwater Boardwalk on Pensacola Beach. The community is encouraged to join the procession of boats escorting Don Tristan DeLuna’s yacht to Pensacola

A procession of boats will travel to Pensacola Beach for the DeLuna Landing Ceremony tomorrow, May 30.

Beach, where he will be welcomed by Chief Mayoki, his Queen, White Dove, and tribe at the DeLuna Landing Ceremony, a lighthearted reenactment of what might have happened when DeLuna landed in 1559. • Fiesta All Krewe Ball, 7 p.m. June 4, at the Hadji Shrine Temple. This event is by invitation only. All krewes are invited and the festivities include live music, krewe skits/dances and a presentation of krewe royalty. • DeLuna Coronation Ball, 7 p.m. June 5 at the Pensacola Bay Center. The sponsors’ ball is by invitation. DeLuna LXVI will be crowned in a colorful ceremony accompanied by his

queen and court. Many former DeLunas and dignitaries will be in attendance. Guests will be treated to a coronation breakfast beginning at 10 p.m. Elcano tours: Spain’s naval training ship, the Juan Sebastian de Elcano, is visiting Pensacola as part of the annual Fiesta of Five Flags celebration.

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