NAS Pensacola marks Midway anniversary Veterans honored 71 years after historic battle Story, photo by Jennifer Eitzmann NASP PAO Intern

More than 200 active-duty service members, retired veterans, civilians and distinguished guests recognized the heroism of World War II veterans at the 71st annual commemoration ceremony for the Battle of Midway at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NAS Pensacola June 4. The Battle of Midway took place June 4-7, 1942, and has been said to be the turning point in the battle for the Pacific during World War II. Japanese forces were planning an attack on Midway Island due the tactical advantage it provided. Midway is approximately 1,100 miles from Hawaii and Japanese forces wanted control over the island so it could be used as a Japanese military base. Commander of the Naval Education and Training

Command (NETC), Rear Adm. Donald P. Quinn, was the guest speaker at the commemoration. “Those of us who serve today stand on the shoulders of these giants,” Quinn said after recognizing the Midway veterans in attendance. With Navy cryptology and carrier aviation being key elements in the Battle of Midway, Quinn also acknowledged the continuing role in training played locally. “The next generations of warriors in those communities train with us here in Pensacola,” Quinn said. “Today the Center for Information Dominance trains cryptology and intelligence professionals, and all naval aviation pilots and flight crews pass through the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training.” Thanks to Navy cryptologists the United States was able to decipher Japanese messages that eluded to the impending Battle

Stormwater mangement: keep it clean From NavFacSE

Regardless of whether you live on or off installation, everyone shares a unique natural resource, water. This vital resource includes the groundwater consumed and surrounding waters such as bayous, creeks and bays. Everyone depends on clean water for health, the environment and the economy. NAS Pensacola works diligently to ensure its water resources are protected and managed efficiently and effectively. One important aspect of this stewardship is stormwater management. Three primary challenges of stormwater management are: draining stormwater quickly for

flood prevention, ensuring stormwater has not picked up contaminants along the way, and allowing stormwater to recharge groundwater and drinking water supplies. Personally, each of us has a responsibility to protect water for ourselves and future generations, especially with respect to the second challenge of stormwater management; keeping stormwater clean and free of contaminants. Here are some ways you can participate: • Never dump anything down storm drains or into gutters. Only rain water is allowed to go to storm drains. • On base, utilize the official installation wash racks or local car wash locations instead of spreading contaminants to sur-

Lots of pollutants are in the waste water from washing your car, and lots more can be added as the water travels from your car to a storm drain, including oils and grease, metals, detergents, carcinogens and phosphorous (harmful to fish and other aquatic life). NASP designated carwash locations: Bldg. 645 on Radford Blvd., Bldg. 606 and Bldg. 600. • Buy environmentally preferred products. • Know what to do in case of a spill and who to notify. • Check your car for leaks and recycle your used motor oil. • Keep gutters and drains debris free.

of Midway. Because of the early knowledge of the attack, the United States was able to put together a defensive strategy that allowed it to use its minimal resources to the fullest potential. The American victory at Midway marked the end of major Japanese advances. The Navy only had three aircraft carriers available to deploy to Midway. Newton E. Delchamps and Wiley Bartlett served aboard two of those carriers, the USS Yorktown (CV 5) and the USS

Hornet (CV 8) respectively. The two joined the Navy together in 1940 in Mobile, Ala., before deploying to the Battle of Midway two years later. Delchamps’ ship was hit by three bombs and two torpedoes during the battle. “They said abandon ship and threw lines overboard,” Delchamps said. “I crawled over the side and lowered myself into the water. I was eventually picked up by a destroyer.” The bombing of the USS Yorktown nearly took Delchamps’ life and that of Bartlett’s friend, but after the three-day battle was

drive in history. According to NMOTC Commanding Officer and 2013 NAS Pensacola NMCRS Chairman Capt. James Norton, this year’s NMCRS Active Duty Fund Drive was successful through the efforts of the NMOTC and NMCRS staff, but most importantly through the donations by Sailors, Marines, retirees and Department of Defense civilian employees. “We couldn’t have had a successful NMCRS fund drive without the thousands of contributions Sailors and Marines throughout the area made,” he said. “Each cent these shipmates generously gave is going to help a Sailor or Marine and their families during the next year. My hat’s off to all those who participated in this – truly – a Navy-Marine Corps team effort.” Each year, one of the larger NAS Pensacola commands coordinates the NMCRS fund drive, with NMOTC awarded the honor of leading this year’s campaign. The six-week drive began March 1 and concluded April 15, with numerous events including a charitable golf tournament and 5K Fun Run.

Using native plants has many benefits including decreased irrigation needs. • Use fertilizers sparingly and avoid pesticides. • Direct down spouts away from paved surfaces (preferably to a rain garden). • Pick up after your pet.

administrator and contracts with Scholarships Managers of Providencetown, N.J., to evaluate the program’s applications. Since the inception of the program in 2000, $7.3 million has been given out to more than 5,000 children. Commissary vendors, manufacturers, broker, suppliers and the general public donate money to the program, and every dollar donated goes directly to funding scholarships. Shasta Sales sponsored the 2013 scholarships for the Pensacola commissary. Tim Moore, district manager for Advantage Sales, provided gift baskets that were handed out to scholarship recipients at the reception.

Donations toward last year’s Pensacola-area NMCRS Active-Duty Fund Drive totaled $323,000, a number significantly trumped by the $465,000 raised during the 2013 campaign. Norton said this was indicative of both the willingness of service members to donate and the tireless efforts of NMOTC Administrative Officer and Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society 2013 NASP Coordinator Lt. Dawn Torrusio. Norton also said that individual commands including AMS-2, HTS-18, Naval Air Technical Training Center, Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity, Naval Recruiting Orientation Unit and VT-3 – boasted marked achievements in donations, ranging from the highest dollar amount per contributor to the highest dollar amount contributed by command. According to NAS Pensacola NMCRS Director Mark Harden, nearly $1 million in financial assistance was provided to roughly 2,400 financial cases in the Pensacola area in 2011, a clear indicator of both the NMCRS’s reach as well as the organization’s willingness to help those in need.

Garnishment process can be complicated By LN1 Sharlissa Barefield RLSO SE Branch Office Corpus Christi

D

efense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS) Garnishment Operations in Cleveland processes all court ordered garnishments for military members, military retirees and Department of Defense (DoD) civilian employees. Types of garnishment include: child support, alimony, commercial debts, Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy orders, and division of military retired pay under the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act. Child support and alimony The Consumer and Credit Protection Act (CCPA) limits the amount that can be garnished for child support or alimony to a percentage of an individual’s disposable pay. Disposable pay includes wages, salary, bonuses and incentive pay less authorized deductions, such as income tax withholding or debts owed to the government. The maximum percentage that can be deducted from pay is as follows:

• 50 percent when the obligor provides more than half the support of dependents, other than those for whom the support is to be deducted, and has not accrued an arrearage (back pay). • 55 percent when the obligor provides more than half the support of dependents, other than those for whom the support is to be deducted, and has accrued an arrearage. • 60 percent when the obligor does not support other dependents and has not accrued an arrearage. • 65 percent when the obligor does not support other dependents and has accrued an arrearage. If the ordered amount of child support or alimony is lower than the maximum per-

centage allowable, then the full amount will be deducted. Commercial debt Active-duty members are typically not subject to garnishment for commercial debt; however, they can be forced to set up involuntary allotments. The percentage cap cannot total more than 25 percent of pay. If there is no pay available to comply with the court order due to garnishments for child support or alimony, DFAS will return the garnishm e n t o r d e r without action, and the creditor will have to re-apply when there is sufficient pay available. Involuntary withholding for the collection of a commercial debt from civil service employees is limited to a maximum of 25 percent of pay. If the governing state caps the percentage at a lower rate, then that rate prevails. Orders for child support, alimony and related arrearages have priority over any commercial garnishment. Retired military or civil service members’ pay is exempt from garnishment for

commercial debts; however, pay due pursuant to the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act, child support, spousal support, or a property division can be garnished. Taxes If DFAS is served with a levy by the Internal Revenue Service, DFAS must honor the tax levy irrespective of whether the obligor is active duty or retired. In the case of garnishments, the coll e c t i o n action is mandatory and a n y rebuttal concerning the levy must be addressed with the IRS. Levies are continuous, and collection will run until the entire amount is either collected or the IRS informs DFAS that they are released from collecting the levy amount. Bankruptcy DFAS can withhold up to 100 percent of the obligor’s pay. If DFAS withholds 50 percent for child support, DFAS will withhold the remaining 50 percent of pay for the bankruptcy order. The automatic stay provisions of the bankruptcy law require that all commercial garnish-

ments, involuntary allotments and debt collections stop once a person files for bankruptcy; however, child support, alimony, and their arrearages do not terminate. Assistance available Garnishments are very complicated. For more information, go to the DFAS website at http://www.dfas.mil/ garnishment or contact your nearest legal assistance office. If you need assistance with a legal issue, you can contact the NAS Pensacola Region Legal Service Office at 161 Turner St., Bldg. 624, Suite B, second deck. The phone number is 452-3730.

CID CO visits Pensacola Tiger Bay Club Story, photo by Gary Nichols CID PAO

Capt. Susan K. Cerovsky, commanding officer of the Center for Information Dominance (CID), spoke to members of the Pensacola Tiger Bay Club May 17 at the New World Landing in downtown Pensacola. Vice President of Program Jolinda Jones, said she had heard Cerovsky speak last fall at the Pensacola Rotary Club and requested that Cerovsky speak to her group. The Panhandle Tiger Bay Club, established in 1977 by the late Pensacola News Journal columnist Pat Lloyd and John Broxson, is a diverse, non-partisan group of men and women who are interested in public policy issues and politics. The club brings in speakers who address topical issues and present ideas that are intended to provoke curiosity and provide insight, as well as generate debate and community discussion. The Panhandle Tiger Bay Club holds monthly luncheon programs and an annual dinner meeting. Past speakers have included Martha Raddatz and Claire Shipman of ABC News, political commentator and columnist Dick Morris, Jeff Birnbaum of the Washington Post, and pollster John Zogby.

Capt. Susan K. Cerovsky, commanding officer of the Center for Information Dominance (CID), spoke to members of the Pensacola Tiger Bay Club May 17 at the New World Landing in downtown Pensacola. She discussed the training mission of CID and the role it plays in defending national security.

Although she was speaking to a diverse group, there was one thing they all shared in common: they all had personal smart devices, and were all connected to the internet. Cerovsky asked for a show of hands of anyone in the audience that had a cell phone, smart phone, tablet, e-reader or computer. She wasn’t too surprised when every hand in the room

shot up. This emphasized the point to the audience of how many people – not just in that room, but across our society and the globe – have become integrated into and dependent on the internet for much more than just e-mail and paying bills. “For many of us, the thought of being unplugged is almost unthinkable,” Cerovsky said. For many in the audience,

CID is a non-descript base on the west end of Pensacola, and they were a bit fuzzy on its training mission and how CID impacts national security. She explained that CID is the Navy’s learning center that leads, manages and delivers Navy and joint force training in information operations, information warfare, information technology, cryptology and intelligence. There was also a mistaken notion that CID exists only in Pensacola. Cerovsky explained that CID’s footprint is vast, with schoolhouses ranging from New England to the West Coast, Hawaii and Japan, and personnel from all the armed services learn to defend and maintain those vital networks everyone in the room has come to depend on. Cerovsky then discussed current threats, such as phishing, spear phishing, whaling, tab nabbing and others the members might encounter on their own computers. At the end of the discussion, Cerovsky left the members with one final bit of advice regarding unknown links or e-mails. “Remember,” she said. “When in doubt, delete; do not open unknown files; do not click on unknown URLs; do not open images or audio files. Again, when in doubt, delete.” Jones explained that club members, if they had questions

for Cerovsky, could fill out a query card that was available on each table and submit it for a question-and-answer session at the end of her talk. “We had a number of questions submitted, but ran out of time before we could ask Capt. Cerovsky to respond to all of them,” Jones said. At the end of Cerovsky’s 40minute talk, she fielded questions from the podium for another half hour. Clearly interested in what she had to say, many club members stayed behind while the room was being cleaned to chat with Cerovsky for another 20-30 minutes. “How gracious of her to spend so much time afterward answering questions and meeting our members. They were clearly delighted by her,” Jones said. “We rarely have people staying for so long after a meeting, but Capt. Cerovsky went out of her way to listen and interact with each person wanting to talk with her.” With a staff of nearly 1,300 military, civilian and contracted staff members, CID oversees the development and administration of 226 courses at four commands, two detachments, and 16 learning sites throughout the United States and Japan. CID provides training for approximately 24,000 members of the U.S. Armed Services and allied forces each year.

LHD-6 flight deck crash team trains at NATTC Photos, story by Lt. Jonathan Bacon NATTC Public Affairs

The amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard’s (LHD-6) flight deck crash and salvage team completed proficiency and refresher training at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola May 25. The crew members came to Pensacola after the ship successfully completed its Inspection and Survey (InSurv) inspection. While at the training center, they received hands-on training fighting flight deck fires, practicing proper crash and salvage procedures, and safely lifting and moving damaged aircraft. Navy crash and salvage teams must receive the specialized training for new members and refresh veteran members’ skills every year and a half or when 40 percent of the team has

changed out since the last training. AB3 Jessica Rivera, and AB3 Aaron Meriwether agree that the hands on nature of the training is what makes the course popular and successful. “Our ship doesn’t have a stricken aircraft, known as a dud, that we can practice lifting,” Meriwether said. “The only way we can gain that experience is by coming to NATTC and lifting their duds.” Rivera said the live firefighting is the most important training. “Actual experience is so much better than just reading about a procedure, or simulating it. When we’re fighting an aircraft fire, we need to know that our new teammates know their procedures and have got our backs,” Rivera said. “There’s no better way to get the firefighting experience we need than the live firefighting. There’s nothing like the heat of the fire, and having live flames to put out

that you can’t experience any other way.” As fleet returnees and subject matter experts NATTC instructors understand the importance of the training. “The training we provide helps team members think outside of the box, and react quickly, without hesitation, to save lives and rescue the pilots during an aircraft fire or flight deck emergency,” said AB1 Roderick McCarty. AB1 Chris Surowiec said being a NATTC instructor is challenging, rewarding and an awesome experience. “I get to pass my fleet experience to the first timers in this course. It’s great to know the difference that my experience is making in getting them ready,” he said.

Since its commissioning in 1942, NATTC has been committed to delivering training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy and Marine students annually. The majority of the student population is made up of enlisted personnel attending “A” schools, where they are learning the skills and knowledge required to perform as apprentice level technicians in the fleet. The center also provides airman apprenticeship training, personal financial management, and shipboard aircraft firefighting training. Advanced schools provide higher level technical knowledge for senior petty officers, and technical training for officers in aviation fuels, carrier

air traffic control center operations, amphibious air traffic control center operations, aircraft launch and recovery equipment, and shipboard aircraft fire fighting. Additionally, NATTC supports the fleet by providing team training to ships personnel during their pre-deployment work-ups, to ensure that shipboard personnel have the proficiency required to take their ship on deployment, after a prolonged period in port.

VT-6 earns Chief of Naval Operations safety award Story, photo by Jay Cope NASWF PAO

With a short, simple ceremony, during of all things – a safety standown – Training Air Wing Five Commodore Capt. James Fisher presented the prestigious Chief of Naval Operations Safety Award to Training Squadron Six (VT-6) in the Naval Air Station Whiting Field auditorium May 17. The award is presented annually to commands that display the vigilance and dedication to preserving the wellbeing of the military service members in their charge. “What’s important to me today is what is always important when we fly,” Fisher stated to the assembled squadron. “Safety is always the number one priority. It trumps everything.” VT-6 Commanding Officer Cmdr. Donald Jamiola received the award on behalf of the squadron and was one of the driving forces behind the 13,813

safely flown flight hours, a grade of “outstanding” on the annual flight instructor standardization and training

inspection, and strict adherence to ASAP safety principles. ASAP is an anonymous, safety checklist that each

pilot must fill out online upon completion of a flight. The process provides for total accountability of mission oriented events, mishaps or near misses. The emphasis on the program reflects a safety first mentality across the entire squadron. Former Secretary of the Navy, Gordon R. England, established the Safety Excellence Award in 2002. His goal was to promote safe practices throughout the Department of the Navy and to recognize those commands that standout within the safety guidelines and procedures. The award citation commended the squadrons “outstanding safety record” and praised the unit’s leadership and airmanship. “Throughout the year, you consistently demonstrated the utmost professionalism, superb skill, and the highest level of operational readiness. Your exemplary record and superior performance significantly contributed to the Navy’s overall safety record,” the award stated.

MWR ‘flexes’ to expand fitness opportunities Story, photo by Jay Cope NASWF PAO

Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s Fitness Center recently downsized their fitness classes to meet budget constraints imposed due to sequestration and the 2013 continuing resolution. However, due to creative efforts of the staff and fitness enthusiast Raelyn Latchaw, additional group classes are now available. Latchaw used to lead five group workout classes a week but the mandated reduction in classes limited her contract to only two weekly classes. Out of dedication to her students, and an authentic belief in the physical results of her group workouts, Latchaw volunteered to continue teaching the “Anything Goes” classes on Thursday mornings free of charge. “It’s my passion and hopefully God will let me continue

to do what I love,” she said of her fitness classes. Latchaw spoke of the importance of keeping a set workout schedule. She knows that for most people a well-defined plan and group support are key elements in committing to a lifetime of fitness. MWR is offering her water fitness classes again this year at a fee comparable to outside facilities. Many loyal followers have already purchased passes for the first block of sessions that commenced May 20. These reasonably priced courses offer a multitude of health benefits to include cardiovascular, muscle conditioning, and flexibility to their participants. Lt. Ryan Dahlman, a participant in her classes, spoke highly of Latchaw’s water fitness class. “I found the workout very challenging and rewarding. I believe she tailors the class to

meet each individuals needs to provide them the best workout possible. I am looking forward to seeing her class back on the schedule again this summer,” he said. Classes are available in four- and five-week blocks and feature punch cards offer-

ing multi-session discounts. Sixty minute sessions will be held on Monday and Thursday evenings from now through August. Drop-in pricing is available to all with discounted rates for active duty members. Visit MWR’s Facebook page for full details.

“I would never have tried this (water fitness) class if it weren’t for Raelyn. I trusted her after going to her other classes. She is so fun and likable,” Kelly Dahlman, another of Latchaw’s clients said. “She is understanding of what everyone’s fitness level is and she knows how to push me harder.” Latchaw emphasizes that the class is suitable for both the beginner and the elite athlete. It is a low-impact workout that still burns between 400 to 700 calories per session. Those interested in participating in Latchaw’s water fitness classes may contact the Fitness Center at 623-7412 or e-mail Latchaw at raelynlatchaw@yahoo.com. NAS Whiting Field’s Fitness Center will continue offering spin, yoga, Anything Goes and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) free of charge.

Old Glory’s birthday: Flag Day Flag Day honors American ideals, sacrifices By Donna Miles American Forces Press Service

O

n June 14, the United States observes National Flag Day, an annual tribute to the American flag, the ideals it stands for and the sacrifices made to preserve them.

Combat Team would take that inspiration with them to Iraq, where they lost 19 Soldiers securing Route Irish and its surrounding Baghdad neighborhoods during their yearlong deployment. Among those killed was Army Staff Sgt. Christian Engledrum, a New York firefighter who, like Minning, worked amid the dust and smoke immediately following the World Trade Center attack. Engledrum, the first New York City employee to die serving in Iraq, became a symbol of the unit that went from Ground Zero to Iraq’s Sunni Triangle, and after his death, to the mountains of Afghanistan. The flag and what it represents continue to motivate unit members during their deployment to Afghanistan as embedded trainers for the Afghan National Army, he said. Minning said he recognizes when he saw Old Glory flying at his tiny forward operating base there that he and his fellow Soldiers were following in the footsteps of the earliest U.S. patriots and defending the same values they fought for. “The flag is a symbol of everything the United States stands for – from our Founding Fathers up until now, all that we have accomplished, and the hurtles our country has overcome,” he said. As a Soldier, Minning said, he and his fellow Soldiers recognized that it’s up to them to continue carrying the torch forward. “It is the American Soldier who keeps the country moving forward and will never let it be taken down by any adversity. It is what we fight for and, if we fall in battle, what our coffins are draped with,” he said. “And it’s what we are committed to protecting and defending, no matter what the price.”

President Woodrow Wilson recognized during his first Flag Day address in 1915 that the freedoms the U.S. flag stands for weren’t and never would be free. “The lines of red are lines of blood, nobly and unselfishly shed by men who loved the liberty of their fellowship more than they loved their own lives and fortunes,” he said. “God forbid that we should have to use the blood of America to freshen the color of the flag.” But American blood has spilled time and time again to preserve American liberties, most recently in the war against violent extremism. Three current or retired service members have shared their personal perspectives about how the flag has inspired them through their proudest as well as darkest days as a symbol of patriotism, strength and resilience. Army Capt. Joe Minning – 9/11 terror attacks Few Americans will forget the image of three firefighters raising an American flag over the World Trade Center ruins in New York just hours after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. But for Army Capt. Joe Minning and his fellow New York National Guard Soldiers, many of them New York City firefighters and police officers, the “Ground Zero” flag took on a very personal significance as they desperately sifted through the rubble looking for survivors. “Seeing the flag raised above all of the rubble and ruins of the World Trade Center instilled a new sense of pride in me for our country,” he said. “No matter what happens to the United States – on foreign ground, on U.S. soil – we, the American people, will always continue to move forward, rebuild and face any challenges that lie ahead.” Three years later, Minning and the “Fighting 69th” Brigade

PATRIOT RIGHTS SIGNERS TRUTHS VISION

Marine CWO Charles W. Henderson – Beirut embassy bombing Back in April 1983, rescue workers picking through the rubble of what had been the U.S. Embassy in Beirut following a terrorist attack uncovered the body of 21-year-old Marine Cpl. Robert V. McMaugh. Beside his body lay the tattered remains of the U.S. flag that had once stood proudly beside his guard post in the embassy’s main lobby. McMaugh’s fellow Marine security guards draped their fallen comrade in a fresh American flag and carried him away on a stretcher. A squad of Marines snapped to attention and saluted. “It was a poignant moment,” recalled retired CWO Charles W. “Bill” Henderson, a spokesman attached to 22nd Marine Amphibious Unit in Lebanon at the time of the bombing. “Everyone had been digging and digging, then suddenly, everything stopped. Not a word was said. Seeing the body of a fellow Marine covered with the American flag … it was an electrifying moment,” he said. While stationed in Beirut, Henderson said, he came to appreciate the flag, not just as a piece of material, but as a symbol of courage. “Each Marine (in Lebanon) wore an American flag on his shirt,” he said. “It did more than show that we were

Americans. It showed that we were representing this country and what it stands for: freedom for all people.” Henderson said terrorist attacks that followed that initial salvo and the thousands of Americans who have died as a result have only deepened the flag’s symbolism. “What’s behind it are the blood and tears of hundreds of thousands of Soldiers who have sacrificed. The symbolism behind the flag is this long tradition of sacrifice to preserve liberty,” he said. “Yes, it is just a piece of cloth,” he said. “But what it represents are the lives of thousands of Americans who have given everything for this nation – who ask nothing in return but felt an obligation of duty to their country.” Henderson said he doesn’t take disrespect for the flag lightly. “When you insult our flag, you insult the lives and the sacrifices of all the men and women who have served this country,” he said. On the other hand, honoring the flag is showing respect and appreciation for all they have done. “You are honoring everything that we, as a nation, have accomplished, what America has done and what America represents to the world,” he said.

Color Me ‘These colors don’t run’

Now-retired Col. David M. Roeder remembers living without the freedoms he had worked to protect when he and more than 50 other Americans were taken hostage for 444 days in Iran in November 1979. Roeder, assistant Air Force attache to the U.S. embassy in Tehran at the time, watched helplessly as U.S. flag burnings became almost daily media events. His captors taunted the hostages by carrying garbage from one area of the embassy compound to another, wrapped in the American flag. Through it all, Roeder said, he never lost faith in his country or the flag that symbolizes its ideals. “When you talk about a flag, whether it’s standing in a place of honor at a ceremony or draped over a casket or waving from someone’s house, you’re talking about a symbol,” he said. “But the importance of that symbolism is monumental. It represents what we are, wherever we are in the world,” he said. “And no matter what anyone else says about it or does to it, the flag never loses dignity. It only gains dignity, because when someone attacks the American flag, it’s because they recognize all that it represents and the greatness of this country.”

Program brings the world to local students From The Global Corner

During the week of May 6, students at Navy Point Elementary School had a special visit from representative of The Global Corner. Each year, the local nonprofit organization spends a week at the school to take the children on a virtual adventure to another country. This year, the students “visited” India and learned about its language, writing, music, dance, art, architecture, culture and celebrations. Military family members joined in on the fun and informative activities. Kore Faniel and the other

children learned about traditional Indian clothing. Baeyla Gutierrez, who is from a Navy family, tried on some Indian clothing that would be worn to a celebration. In the music and dance class, Anthony Rollins and Devon McKnight practiced a namaskar, the traditional way to begin an Indian dance and how dancers ask the Earth for permission to dance on it. Anthony is from a Navy family, while Devon is an Air Force dependent. The Global Corner is based in Pensacola and was started by retired Navy Capt. Lee Little Hansen. Hansen

retired in 2006 after her tour as commodore of Training Air Wing Six. The organization’s goal is to help children understand world languages and cultures in order to create a future workforce that could be globally competitive. Since its founding in 2007, The Global Corner has led students in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties on more than 38,000 virtual adventures to places such as Japan, Spain, Egypt, Brazil, Russia and India. To learn more about The Global Corner and its activities, go to www.theglobal corner.org.

A big crowd turned out May 23 for the first Evenings in Olde Seville Square concert of the season. The summer concert series will continue each Thursday in dowtown Pensacola. Photo from http://eveningsinoldesevillesquare.com

Musical evenings continue New group presenting popular summer concert series in Seville Square From Evenings in Olde Seville Square

Everyone is welcome to hang out under the heritage oak trees at the park for Evenings in Olde Seville Square, a series of free summer concerts scheduled for every Thursday through the middle of August. Seating is not provided, so you should bring a blanket or folding chairs to sit on. Many concertgoers bring picnic dinners, but there also are vendors along Alcaniz Street offering a variety of items. The history of the event goes back to 1966, but this year a new non-profit organization — Events Pensacola — is presenting the concerts. Last year, the Pensacola

Heritage Foundation announced that the concerts would be ending. Fortunately for Pensacola music fans, a proposal was made to save the concert series. The new group received the blessing of the Pensacola Heritage Foundation, which granted it use of the iconic name, Evenings in Olde Seville Square. The 2013 Evenings in Olde Seville Square concerts kicked off on May 23 with performances by the The McGuire’s Pipe Band and the Pensacola Civic Band. The rest of concerts on the schedule feature a variety of music ranging from jazz and country to swing and rock ’n’ roll.

DETAILS WHAT: Evenings in Olde Seville. WHEN: 7 to 9 p.m. each Thursday. WHERE: Seville Square in downtown Pensacola. COST: Concerts are free. Band schedule • June 13 — Reunion Band with The Palafox Horns. • June 20 — Sawmill Band. • June 27 — Sarah Mac Band. • July 11 — Heritage Band. • July 18 — Delta Reign. • July 25 — Mass Kunfusion. • Aug. 1 — Dr. Breeze. • Aug. 8 — The Swingin’ Dick Tracys. • Aug. 15 — Super Funk Fantasy and surpise guests.
