Rear Adm. James S. Bynum, Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA), the ceremony’s guest speaker and presiding officer, presented Truluck with the Legion of Merit and commended his exceptional work. “His sense of teamwork and teambuilding are the hallmark of a great leader,” Bynum said. “He has a vision of what ought to be and how to get there. In the end it’s about realizing that vision. Thank you (Capt. Truluck) for your commitment to excellence.” Truluck, in his remarks, thanked the NASC military and civilian staff for the opportunity to serve as their commanding officer. Segars set the tone of his future tenure by expressing his enthusiasm for the mission of NASC. “It is an honor to be your skipper,” he said. “(Students) we will make you ready to meet your future challenges.” Segars’ previous flying assignments include a department head tour with Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron (VQ) 1 stationed at NAS Whidbey Island, Wash.; an operational staff tour with Patrol and Reconnaissance Force 5th/7th Fleet at Naval Air Facility Misawa, Japan; a commanding/executive officer tour with Special Projects Patrol Squadron (VPU) 2 See NASC on page 2

CIWT changes leadership, farewells Capt. Bill Lintz

By Glenn Sircy Center for Information Warfare Training

The Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) held a combined change of command and retirement ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) May 24. Capt. Nicholas “Nick” Andrews II relieved Capt. William “Bill” Lintz as CIWT’s commanding officer during the time-honored tradition of transferring total responsibility, authority and accountability from one individual to another. Immediately following the change of command portion of the ceremony, Lintz’s retirement ceremony was held. Lintz, originally from Beaver, Penn., assumed command of CIWT May 3, 2016. “When I was fortunate enough to be selected for major command, CIWT was where I wanted to be and this is the job I wanted,” Lintz said. “There were a myriad of reasons why, but primary was the realization that the Navy and its success can be attributed to many capabilities such as advanced technology, numbers of war ships, or availability, deployability and readiness. However, in the end, the Navy is successful because of its Sailors and Sailors are successful because we train them to be. Every success in the Navy is based on well-trained Sailors, and I am proud to have been part of training them.”

Lintz is a 1992 graduate of Villanova University with master’s and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School. As a cryptologic officer, he served with various afloat and ashore commands, including U.S. Naval Forces Central Command/U.S. 5th Fleet as fleet intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance collection manager and assistant force cryptologist; Navy Information Operations Com-

mand, Pensacola, as executive officer; U.S. 3rd Fleet as deputy assistant chief of staff for Operations and Fleet Information Operations lead; U.S. Pacific Fleet in the Directorate of Information Operations and Cryptology as lead for Fleet Requirements, Manpower, and Training; Fleet Intelligence Training Center in San Diego as commanding officer and See CIWT on page 2

Troxell: Service members must be physically ready By Jim Garamone DoD News, Defense Media Activity

W

ASHINGTON – The U.S. military’s mission is to fight and win the nation’s wars, and service members must be physically, mentally and emotionally ready to fight when needed, Army Command Sgt. Maj. John W. Troxell said in a recent interview. And in this tumultuous era, that could be at any time, the senior enlisted advisor to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff added. Troxell attended the inaugural DoD Readiness and Resilience Workshop held recently at Fort McNair in Washington. The workshop featured speakers and covered topics to optimize human performance through the body, mind and spirit. Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick M. Shanahan also participated in the workshop. Shanahan opened the workshop by joining service members in a workout. “He’s in good shape,” the sergeant major said of the deputy defense secretary. Be ready for the “Worst Day:” Troxell said he constantly tells service members they must

How to submit a commentary

always be ready to engage in combat, which he describes as the “worst day.” Troxell said he is concerned about recent statistics regarding military deployability. Defense Secretary James N. Mattis recently came out with a deployment and readiness policy. Essentially, the policy stipulates that if a service member is nondeployable for more than a year, then he or she is processed for separation. This does not affect service members wounded in combat. “We have this deployability problem in terms of injuries and obesity–we are talking about 100,000 service members,” Troxell said. “On top of that, 17 percent of the troops have been diagnosed as overweight or obese.” The sergeant major said he

brought together civilian and military fitness and dietary experts to discuss fitness, performance, nutrition and recovery at the Fort McNair workshop. “I brought in 50 service members from around the services who are high-speed individuals – the Marine martial arts instructors, master trainers from the Army, the Navy brought in a number of medical folks and dietitians,” Troxell said. “It was a lot of very physically fit people who were there to speak with each other and share best practices and strategies to address the obesity and the nondeployability problem.” Promote warrior / athlete culture: Noncommissioned officers and petty officers need to promote and encourage “a warrior/athlete culture and mentality” across the military services, Troxell said. “Our special operations force(s) already do this very well, and there’s episodes in the services where it goes well,” he said. “But there are too many cultures out there where fitness training is just something we do for an hour in the morning and it is a ‘check the block’ kind of thing.” And, some physical fitness training seems designed to prepare people to just pass the test, Troxell said. “What physical training needs

to be is a process to get someone prepared physically, mentally and emotionally for the conditions they may face on the worst day of their life,” he said. That worst day comes in a variety of guises, Troxell said. For a soldier or Marine, it may be armed individual combat. For a sailor it could be dealing with disaster and firefighting. For an airman it could be in a convoy or on an airfield where disaster strikes or an enemy attacks. “In any event, we shouldn’t be training to pass a fitness test,” he said. “We would be training for what we need to do on that worst day. We don’t do that enough.” In extreme cases, there are service members who have been nondeployable for three or four years, the sergeant major said. Someone else still has to go. The sergeant major described one specialty with just 32 people. Only eight are deployable and they shoulder that burden. Physical fitness helps mentally as well, Troxell said. “It’s a medical fact that the more physically fit you are, the more mental and emotional preparedness you are going to have,” he said. “You are already used to pushing against boundaries in physical training. You have already conditioned your body and your mind to handle adversity in training and that has a payout when you go through

the worst day of your life.” Medical experts who deal with post-traumatic stress say that developing physical fitness is a factor in combating that condition. Making change happen: Troxell said he believes that the NCO and petty officer ranks need to make change happen. “I want those mid-range noncommissioned officers and the petty officers to own this,” he said. “They need to say there won’t be unfit people in their formations. They have to have people they can count on physically, mentally, emotionally, technically to thrive on the worst day. They shouldn’t be discovery learning on the worst days of their lives that the buddies next to them can’t carry someone out of a bad situation.” Regardless of how good the U.S. military is bad things can happen and “we have to prepare, and it starts every day with this culture of ‘I am a warrior/athlete,’ ” Troxell said. He practices what he preaches. Troxell has embraced a tough physical training program. The 54-year-old senior NCO still qualifies in the Ranger School five-mile standard in under 40 minutes. Passing a physical training test requires a 60 percent score. “We can’t be a 60 percent force,” Troxell said. “We have to strive for perfection.”

Corpsmen join Team Navy for 2018 DoD Warrior Games By Angela Ciancio U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery Public Affairs

F

ALLS CHURCH, Va. (NNS) – Six hospital corpsmen will join 300 athletes this year in representing Team Navy at the 2018 Department of Defense Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, June 1 through 9. HMCS Joseph Paterniti, HM1 Carlos Valerio, HM2 Emmanuel Gonzalez, HM2 Chris Alarcon, HM3 Susan Guzowski and former HM3 Jaime Garza Jr. will compete against some of the services’ most resilient athletes. “Each service member has different reasons for competing in this year’s games, but each are bonded by the fact that they have overcome incredible odds to be here,” Vice Adm. Forrest Faison, Navy surgeon general and chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery said. “We are proud to have Navy Medicine Sailors representing Team Navy.” The Warrior Games were created in 2010 as a way to enhance the recovery efforts of wounded warriors through the use of adaptive sports. Eight teams will represent the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force and Special Operations Command, as well as the United Kingdom armed forces and the Australian defense force. This year marks the fourth annual Warrior Games since the DoD began managing the event,

which was previously hosted by the U.S. Olympic Committee. “Preparing for the games provides me the opportunity to gain the strength to adapt to my new normal,” Valerio said. “I enjoy helping fellow service members adapt to their new normal through sports and friendship.” Wounded-warrior athletes are comprised of active-duty personnel and veterans with upperbody, lower-body and spinal cord injuries, serious illnesses, traumatic brain injuries, visual impairment and post-traumatic stress. They will compete in a variety of competitions including cycling, archery, sitting volleyball, shooting, swimming, track and field and wheelchair basketball. The Warrior Games are an important venue to showcase the incredible fighting spirit of the nation’s wounded service members and honor the daily sacrifices they and their families make in defense of the nation. The games are also a way for the wounded-warrior athletes to develop lifelong friendships and

mutual support with those who have endured similar challenges. “These athletes are showing great resilience and fortitude in the sacrifices they made for this country,” Faison said. “We wish them the very best of luck during the games.” Navy Medicine offers several avenues for service members to aid them in their rehabilitation

journey.

Navy provides first ‘Golden Tickets’ under new targeted reentry program From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – The first set of Golden and Silver Tickets have been issued to 16 Sailors under the new Targeted Reentry Program (TRP), Navy leaders said May 22. “We had 17 applicants and 16 were approved with 12 awarded a Golden Ticket and four awarded a Silver Ticket,” Capt. Dave Whitehead, director, Military Community Management said. The tickets allow for a streamlined reentry process to the Navy for active duty and Full-Time Support (FTS) Sailors who are leaving the Navy and who decide not to affiliate with the Ready Reserve. Golden Ticket holders are guaranteed a streamlined return within one year of release, should they return to active duty. Silver Tick-

et holders are afforded a streamlined return for up to two years, but are subject to the needs of the Navy and community management approval. Golden Tickets not used in the first year become a Silver Ticket for a second year. “The Navy makes a significant investment in educating and training our Sailors,” Whitehead said. “That, coupled with their leadership experience, makes them highly valuable to the Navy. Providing an opportunity to preserve this talent at critical career transition points increases our return on investment while giving our former Sailors an easier choice to return to Service.” The TRP was designed to assist commanders in retaining superior performers who otherwise intend to fully separate from the Navy. Prior to separation, COs can nominate Sailors

for participation in the program. The community managers at the Bureau of Naval Personnel manage the nominations and make a determination on which Sailors are approved for participation and which receive Golden or Silver Tickets. Separating personnel have the final decision in whether or not they want to participate in the program. Members who are awarded a ticket are transferred into Standby ReserveInactive status for the two-year life of their tickets. This Reserve status requires no drilling, members will earn no pay, and will not be eligible for promotion or advancement, health care, retirement points, Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance, and other benefits. Those who return to active duty through TRP will return in the same rank/rate/designator they held prior to separation, but date of rank

Navy volleyball players save lives in Florida

CPO Aniahau Desha

PO1 Sheldon Lucius

By Navy Lt. Cmdr. Chad Murphy U.S. Armed Forces Sports

HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. – As elite military volleyball players from around the U.S. armed forces competed for victory at the 2018 Armed Forces Volleyball Championship, they might not have known they shared the court with four lifesaving Sailors. On the afternoon of May 5, All-Navy Men’s Volleyball players CPO Aniahau Desha, from Hilo, Hawaii; SN Gaston Yescas, from Tucson, Arizona; PO1 Sheldon Lucius, from Pearl City, Hawaii and PO3 Joshua Essick, from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, risked themselves to save the lives of two teenage girls at Naval Station Mayport Beach, Fla. These Sailors bravely responded to cries for help from beachgoers, stating that two people were in trouble 75 yards off shore. Understanding the peril at hand, the four Sailors entered rough surf conditions to retrieve the endangered swimmers. “I was on the beach with my wife, and everyone showed up there, Josh, Sheldon and Gaston,” Desha said. “We’d just sat down, and some

PO3 Joshua Essick

ladies came up the beach were yelling for help, seeing that the girls were out in the waves, needing help. They were in trouble, so we just ran into the water and got them.” As the rescuers reached the teenagers, one of the girls was holding on to her unresponsive friend. Lucius pulled the conscious swimmer ashore, ensuring her safety, while Essick and the others carried the unresponsive swimmer up onto the beach. “When we got on shore, as soon as I picked her up, I noticed that she wasn’t breathing,” Desha said. “It was obvious that she wasn’t breathing. I checked for her pulse – there was no pulse. So we immediately started chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth.” Desha and Yescas conducted CPR until emergency rescue personnel arrived to relieve them. “Since I’m a corpsman up to date with the CPR certifications and all, and I was also a lifeguard for eight years, this was honestly like a normal drill, I would say,” Yescas said. “I’ve been in a lot of incidents like this.” On scene officials provided observations. “Two teenagers are alive today as a direct result of (these Sailors’) quick thinking, bravery

SN Gaston Yescas

and composure under extreme pressure,” AllNavy Men’s Volleyball coach Gilburto Bermudez said. Thomas Lyszkowski, First Coast Navy Fire and Emergency Services assistant fire chief, echoed the sentiment, saying the swimmer found unresponsive had been released from the hospital. “Because of the actions of these Sailors, she’s alive,” Lyszkowski said. “Those Sailors put others before themselves, and did so at great risk to their own safety,” Mark Brusoe, First Coast Navy Fire and Emergency Services fire chief added. The Sailors were glad to hear that the young woman was OK and had been discharged from the hospital. “It makes me feel great to hear that she made it out alive,” Yescas said. “Her mom sent us a message on Facebook to let us know that she was getting discharged, and that her daughter was going to write us a letter and send us a picture just saying thank you for what we did.” “It’s an amazing feeling knowing that this girl’s going to see another day because of what we did,” Desha said. “For the parents, especially, and as a parent myself, I couldn’t imagine hearing the news that something happened to my daughter. And if someone was there to help, I’d like them to do the same for me if it was my child. So, I’m pretty honored.”

NAS Whiting Field’s Wright retires with 24 years Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Harrison Garrett NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Office

A

BHC Roland Wright retired from the United States Navy May 25, onboard Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) following 24 years of service to the nation. Originally from Memphis, Tenn., Wright joined the Navy following community college, where he was working toward an electrical engineering degree. He initially considered serving in submarines but chose to make a career in aviation support. Wright enlisted May 9, 1994, and reported to Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill. Following boot camp, Wright became an Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handler) (ABH). As an ABH, he was responsible for the aviation electrical components on various aircraft or airframes. He completed his initial training at Great Lakes, reported to the USS Boxer (LHD 4), at NAS San Diego and after four years aboard USS Boxer in the crash and salvage work center, he completed advanced training in Pensacola.

Wright was then assigned to shore duty at NAS Lemoore in California in September, 1999, and it was there he decided for the first time to make the Navy his career. In 2003, Wright was assigned to USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) in Everett, Wash. While onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, he was responsible for helping incoming Sailors acclimate to the ship, and it was there he further developed leadership techniques that made him successful as a chief. Concluding his time on the USS Abraham Lincoln in 2007, Wright moved overseas to NAS Sigonella in Italy. While there, he was the base fire department leading petty officer (LPO), and after three years, reported to the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70). Following his tour aboard

ABHC Roland Wright (center, kneeling) with his fellow NAS Whiting Field chief petty officers after his retirement ceremony May 25.

USS Carl Vinson, he earned the honor of joining the Goat Locker and advanced to the rank of chief petty officer. Wright’s final assignment at NAS Whiting Field gave him more responsibility for the training area used for emergency response to aircraft mishaps. This vital function ensures Sailors are trained and ready in the event of any aircraft mishaps. Wright’s mentor and friend, retired chief Larry Powels, was the guest speaker for the

retirement ceremony. Powels expressed how honored he was to have gotten the call from Wright to speak about his old junior Sailor. “I was honored to be his chief, and I’m honored to be his friend,” Powels said. Powels went on to say that, “as a leader of junior Sailors, he was the guy molding them.” Powels concluded by advising Wright that “(retiring) is not the end of a career, but a start to a new chapter.”

Wright thanked his friends and family, pointing special appreciation to his wife, for all they have done to support his career and the needs of the Navy. “To my mentors who molded me, thank you.” Wright said. “To my Sailors, I had the pleasure of watching you grow. We give up birthdays, anniversaries, we give up so much. But it’s been a great ride, and I’m so thankful for the Sailors who have been a part of my life.”

Japan’s sword shattered at

Midway

By Mike O’Connor Gosport Editor

V

eterans, cryptographers and historians will take time this week to recall World War II’s Battle of Midway, considered by many to be the turning point in the battle for the Pacific. Midway. A catastrophic defeat for Japan, and a desperately needed victory for America, the Battle of Midway destroyed the illusion of Japanese invincibility and set the stage for Japan’s inevitable defeat. More than a halfway point, it was the turning point for World War II in the Pacific. A string of quick victories had led to overconfidence in the Japanese admiralty, a condition they later termed “victory disease.” Its forces had run up success after success in the Pacific after the Dec. 7 attack on United States forces at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The British battleship Prince of Wales and cruiser Repulse had been sunk Dec. 10. Guam and Wake Island were seized, the Philippines invaded. Hong Kong and Singapore, too, fell into Japanese hands. By June 1942, Japan was in uncontested possession of the whole of Southeast Asia. Japanese Naval General Staff strategic planner Fleet Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto had sought to strike a decisive blow that would knock America out of the Pacific once and for all. By attacking Midway Island, an atoll actually consisting of two

islands, Sand and Eastern Island – and also in the Aleutian Islands off Alaska – he hoped to draw the American carrier forces into a trap. If Japanese fleet forces succeeded in destroying the U.S. Navy’s carrier forces, which were untouched by the attack at Pearl Harbor, Yamamoto reasoned Japan would have a free hand in the Pacific for years. Yamamoto was a well-known gambler, but in his bid to take Midway he could not have known the deck was stacked against him. American cryptologic efforts, under the direction of Cmdr. Joseph Rochefort at Pearl Harbor’s Station Hypo, had made significant progress against the Japanese naval code then in use, called JN-25. The Navy’s radio intelligence organization was able to decipher an increasing percentage of enemy radio traffic and was beginning to offer clues to America’s military planners about Japan’s intentions. In the months leading up to the Midway battle, the Station Hypo team was putting together a puzzle based on the information they knew. A large-scale Japanese naval offensive was in the making against a target they

called “AF” but the focus of the attack was unclear. The staff of Adm. Chester Nimitz, commander of the U.S. fleet in the Pacific, needed to be sure. Rochefort’s team, along with Capt. Edwin Layton, Nimitz’s fleet intelligence officer, had a clue that “AF” might be Midway, so a ruse was developed. The radio operator at Midway was instructed to broadcast in the clear a message that the installation’s fresh water distillation plant had broken down and that fresh water was needed at once. Soon after, monitored Japanese radio traffic passed along a message, “AF is short of water.” With the enemy intentions in hand, Nimitz drew up his own plan of attack. Three American aircraft carriers, USS Enterprise (CV 6), USS Yorktown (CV 5) and USS Hornet (CV 8) faced four large

Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) carriers – Akagi, Kaga, Hiryu and Soryu at Midway. Accompanying the IJN carriers were no less than seven Japanese battleships; the Americans had none at Midway. And supporting the powerful IJN fleet were about 150 supporting ships of various kinds; the United States had about 50. The date of the intended offensive was known – June 3. Though American naval forces were far less numerous than the opposing force, Nimitz was able to position his strength to his best advantage. Patrols made contact and June 4, in the space of a few history-changing minutes, three Japanese carriers were hit and left ablaze by American dive bombers. Later that day the fourth Japanese carrier was located, hit and later sunk.

Gosling Games Color Me: ‘Shells’

Though Yorktown was lost – bombed, then torpedoed and sunk by a Japanese submarine – the damage to the Japanese fleet was thorough. Four of the six Japanese carriers which had attacked Pearl Harbor were lost, along with a cruiser, 256 aircraft and 3,057 personnel. American losses in addition to Yorktown were one destroyer, 145 aircraft and 307 personnel. The battle was won due to a combination of factors in which courage, skill, fortune and timing all played a part, but the value of the naval intelligence which indicated Japanese intentions is undeniable. The victory was a needed shot in the arm to an anxious America at war. Before the Battle of Midway, Japanese military power in the Pacific did nothing but advance. After Midway, they did nothing but retreat.

Thoughts to ponder I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don’t know what to feed it. I had amnesia once ... or twice. I can’t remember. All I ask is a chance to prove that money can’t make me happy. What’s a “free” gift? Aren’t all gifts free? They told me I was gullible ... and I believed them.

“I’m very proud of my entire team, and how their dedicated efforts sustain and propel the entire CIWT domain like a well-oiled machine,” O’Connell said. “Although there’s an incredible amount of pressure and responsibility to balance daily requirements, the N9 team continuously delivers impeccable results.” Overall, the N9 team’s efforts directly impact a daily student enrollment average of 3,900; management and delivery of Navy and joint force training to 22,000 students annually; 1,200 military, civilian and contracted staff members; Navy Credentialing Opportunities On-Line; Language, Regional Expertise, and Culture directorate; and over 200 courses offered at four information warfare training commands, two detachments, and additional learning sites located throughout the United States and Japan.

Some of the team’s top CIWT domain responsibilities and statistics include coordinating a full range of facility engineering activities, technical support, and services for approximately 800,000 square feet of top secret, secret and unclassified specialized training facilities in 17 locations worldwide; providing technical support for the installation, maintenance and lifecycle of technical training equipment, training support equipment, training devices and training unique equipment; planning and coordinating facility and infrastructure required to support the training mission; providing administration for

all contracts, administering the annual awarding of more than 40 contracts totaling more than $30 million; providing short and long term technology solutions; administers Government Credit Card Program, executing more than 1,000 purchases annually totaling over $10 million; providing supply services for 90 percent of the domain; management of all domain property; management of domain Electronic Classroom Program; administering the domain’s travel program, reviewing and processing more than 1,000 travel events in annually; providing support for more than 600 NMCI workstations for CIWT, Information Warfare Training Command Corry Station, Personal and Professional Development Learning Site, Corry Station Air Force, Army

Bill Lintz, CIWT’s former commanding officer said. “No matter the situation or challenge, they always exceed expectations providing the required resources and services needed to train and deliver information warfare warfighters to the fleet.” As demonstrated through recent inspection scores and daily results, there’s no question CIWT’s N9 team is comprised of an all-star cast of true professionals, and their dedicated efforts are paramount in preparing information warfare Sailors for the Navy the nation needs.

Flags fly at a previous Fiesta of Five Flags. The fiesta takes it name from the five flags that have flown over Pensacola in its history: Spanish, French, British, Confederate and American. This year’s festival will take place May 30 through June 8 and will be at various locations throughout downtown Pensacola. Photo by Andrew McKay By Kaitlyn Peacock Gosport Staff Writer

The 69th annual Fiesta of Five Flags is coming once again to Pensacola’s streets and waters May 30 through June 8. This year’s festival will include all the favorites, including the Grand Parade, the Cornonation Ball and many other events. The fiesta celebrates the founding of Pensacola by Spanish explorer Don Tristan de Luna in 1559. Established as the first European settlement in America, Pensacola

has since flown under five different flags: Spanish, French, British, Confederate and American. The fiesta spans 10 days and celebrates the landing and founding of Pensacola as well as the explorers who estblished the first city in America. The festival will start with the Emmanuel Sheppard and Condon Fiesta Days Celebration May 30 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Seville Quarter. Each of the five rooms will be decorated in celebration of the five flags flown over Pensacola. Tickets for this

event are $35 per person and includes food, two drink tickets, live entertainment and a commemorative Fiesta medallion. The Grande Parade will be June 1 at 7 p.m. with a route throughout downtown Pensacola and the Centennial Imports Boat Parade will set sail June 2 at 1 p.m., starting at the mouth of the Bayou Chico Bridge along the boardwalk on Pensacola Beach.
