Battle of Midway commemorated onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola • ‘Cradle of Naval Aviation’ had pivotal role in battle

By Jason Bortz NAS Pensacola Public Affairs Officer

Naval Aviation School Command (NASC) hosted a ceremony in honor of the 77th anniversary of the Battle of Midway June 4 at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. The Battle of Midway was one of the most decisive battles of World War II. The keynote speaker for the event was retired Rear Adm. Donald P. Quinn. Six months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, a fleet engagement between the United States and Japan was inevitable. The Japanese Navy was looking to sink the American aircraft carriers that escaped destruction at Pearl Harbor and deliver another significant

blow to the United States Pacific Fleet. However, thanks to an intelligence breakthrough – the solving of the Japanese fleet codes – the U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet commanded by Adm. Chester Nimitz was able to surprise the Japanese fleet near Midway Island. On June 4, 1942, American scout planes located the Japanese force. During the next several days, the Sailors, Marines and Soldiers at sea and on Midway carried out attacks, forcing the Japanese to abandon the battle and retreat. The Japanese lost approximately 3,000 men, four carriers, one cruiser and hundreds of aircraft, while the United States lost approximately 360 men, one carrier, one destroyer and

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (NNS) – Each year Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) recognizes distinguished aviation training squadrons, as well as individuals, for their outstanding performance while supporting CNATRA’s mission training new naval aviators. This year, CNATRA recognized the “Shooters” of Training Squadron (VT) 6 (primary) and the “Stingrays” of VT-35 (advanced) for training excellence. During the 2018 fiscal year both VT-6 and VT-35 exceeded mission goals set for the year. They graduated more pilots while using fewer resources and maintaining the highest level of safety and professionalism. VT-35 also received the Vice Adm. Robert Goldthwaite Training Excellence Award. “It humbles me to see how many nom-

inations come in for these awards each year, and to see the absolute passion and dedication of our team,” CNATRA Rear Adm. Gregory Harris said. “These awards are a chance for us to highlight that excellent work they do every day and to say thank you as we work together to produce the finest military aviators in the world.” CNATRA also recognized five individuals for their exemplary support in the training of naval aviators. Instructors of the Year are: Lt. Andrew Galvin assigned to the “Vigilant Eagles” of Helicopter Training Squadron (HT) 18, Lt. Cmdr. Bryan E. Globke assigned to the “Eagles” of VT-7 and Lt. Dominic E. Perron assigned to the “Warbucks” of VT-4. Their dedication to student success in and out of the aircraft ensured students received the best training possible to prepare them for the fleet.

NETC continues to honor all who served From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

Honoring our brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, or other friends and family’s service is a humbling and heartfelt gesture – especially for those who also have served or are currently serving still. This year, the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) Welfare & Recreation committee for the Naval Air Station Pensacola-based staff has provided the opportunity to showcase family and friends’ service with the 2019 “Memorial Wall” located outside the NETC command offices. “We have had similar opportunities for NETC employees to honor family and friends’ service in years past, but we are really proud of the campaign this year,” Lacey Rose, NETC Welfare & Recreation coordinator said. “This year we decided to allow NETC employees, or family members, to get a gold star and personalize it with the name of the individual they want to honor and place

Rick Cook, an engineer with Naval Education and Training Command, proudly displays the stars dedicated to his family’s service on the NETC Memorial Wall.

it upon the Memorial Wall. This is a way to not only honor those that have passed, but anyone that has served from any service.” For Rick Cook, an engineer with NETC, the Memorial Wall was not only

about honoring his own service, but that of his entire family. “I have seen so much sacrifice over the years, especially from our children, it is hard to put into words,” Cook said. “It was important to me to honor their ser-

Midway from page 1 144 aircraft. NAS Pensacola, known as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation,” played a pivotal role in the Battle of Midway. “It was here, at Naval Air Station Pensacola, where aviators were trained that pioneered the tactics and techniques that grew Naval Aviation from a fledgling force of sea planes to the mighty carrier strike forces of World War II,” Capt. Timothy Kinsella, commanding officer, NAS Pensacola said. “We continue to train the best aviators, aviation technicians and cryptologist technicians in the world at NAS Pensacola, who may someday have to answer a call similar to the Battle of Midway.” The Battle of Midway stopped the growth of Japan in the Pacific and put the United States in a position to change the tide of the war. “We must never forget the sacrifice and service shown by American service members at the Battle of Midway,” Kinsella said. “The world must never forget how many are free because of them. We are a very grateful Navy, which is why we take the time every year to remember this battle.” One of the few surviving aircraft flown at the Battle of Midway is located at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NAS Pensacola. An SBD Dauntless dive bomber, piloted by Marine 1st Lt. Daniel Iverson, was hit by more than 200 bullets and lost part of the its landing gear. Too badly damaged to continue in the war, the plane was repaired and sent to Lake Michigan where it was used a training aircraft for naval aviators. Unfortunely, the plane crashed into Lake Michigan and sunk to the bottom where it remain until the National Naval Aviation Museum raised it from the bottom of the lake and restored it. The plane now sits in the museum as a reminder of the resiliency, toughness and bravery shown by the service members who fought at the Battle of Midway. Quinn highlighted the history that led from the establishment of Pensacola as a training base for naval aviation, to the traits and qualities that were instilled in the fliers which led to victory at Midway. “It is my sincere hope that this battle is celebrated every year of our nation’s existence, because we need to be reminded of who we are,” Quinn said. “Much has been written about this battle and the audacity, valor and good fortune that turned it into arguably the most important victory of the Pacific campaign.” For more than a century, NAS Pensacola, referred to as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation,” has supported operational and training missions of tenant commands, currently including Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC), Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC), the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT), Marine Aviation Training Support Groups (MATSG) 21 and 23 and is the headquarters for Naval Education and Training Command (NETC).

Carderock’s McAllister talks unmanned vehicles

Rear Adm. Eric Ver Hage, Commander, Naval Surface / Undersea Warfare Centers, discusses micro-unmanned systems research with NSWC Carderock engineers Ben Gordon and Chris Nunes. Researchers and Engineers from Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, along with counterparts from other Department of Defense Laboratories, showcased science and technology (S&T) and research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) advancements in the courtyard of the Pentagon during the bi-annual DoD Lab Day exhibit.

From Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division Public Affairs WEST BETHESDA, Maryland (NNS) – Before the turn of the century, futurists imagined today looking something like an episode of “The Jetsons,” with robots doing the dull and dirty work in every home, and pilotless flying cars providing seamless transportation. While that is certainly not the case yet, futuristic concepts are being developed and tested at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division. Reid McAllister is the director of Carderock’s Integrated Unmanned Maritime Mobility Systems, which is responsible for the research, development, test and evaluation of unmanned maritime systems and enabling technolo-

gies. McAllister said he knew years ago that unmanned systems would be a big part of future warfare, and he began coordination efforts to establish an unmanned systems community of interest across the Navy’s Warfare Centers, laboratories, System Commands, academia and industry. In 2015, Carderock Division and Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Newport Division started the Unmanned Vehicles and Autonomous Systems (UVAS) Working Group, co-led by McAllister and Newport’s Chris Egan, with the idea to create a thriving, high-velocity learning enterprise to collaboratively exploit the Warfare Centers’ collective technical capabilities and ensure the Navy has the most reliable and cost-effective unmanned systems. “The focus of the UVAS Work-

ing Group is not just about developing unmanned systems technology alone,” McAllister said. “It’s also about integrating unmanned systems and related technologies into the naval force to achieve force-multiplying capability through dynamic manmachine teaming.” According to McAllister, the future of unmanned systems success hinges on the ability to rapidly advance autonomy development and the speed at which the Navy can safely transition those advancements to the fleet. Unmanned systems that are 100 percent autonomous need to have the ability to function on their own when communications with the remote operator are lost. Different types of maritime platforms have distinct communication limitations and those variables have to be accounted for. Undersea systems cannot use radio frequencies for routine communications when submerged, while surface platforms can communicate as long as over-the-horizon links are maintained. When unmanned systems go into hostile environments, they must have the ability to continue with the mission. Reliance on autonomy becomes critical to system adaptability and mission success. If a system’s autonomy/sensor fusion is smart enough to be able to perceive the dynamic world it is operating in and react accordingly, the need to place warfighters’ lives on the line to complete a mission is greatly reduced, if not eliminated. Unmanned systems could play a role in peacetime scenarios, as well. A ship with a Sailor or Ma-

rine overboard could launch an autonomous boat with a recovery crew aboard. The smart boat could have advanced infrared perception as part of its autonomy sensor suite, which would allow it to see the human as a hot spot against the backdrop of the cold sea. The Sailors aboard the rescue craft would not have to focus their attention on the safe navigation of the boat, but on the safe and quick return of the Sailor or Marine to the ship. “That is a good example of man-machine teaming,” McAllister said. The UVAS Working Group meets every week, where representatives from across the Naval Research and Development Establishment map out how to best apply their collective energies to advance unmanned systems and warfighter capability. Capt. Pete Small, head of the Unmanned Maritime Systems Program Office (PMS 406) at Naval Sea Systems Command, is stewarding a multi-billion budget to acquire significant numbers of unmanned maritime systems (UMS) and related core technologies over the next five years. Small approached the UVAS Working Group to help him understand how the Warfare Centers, Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific, and Naval Meteorological and Oceanographic Command could come together to assist in the development, testing, fielding and sustainment of the PMS 406 unmanned systems portfolio. There is urgency in Small’s request since many of these capabilities will be com-

ing into Navy possession within the current Future Years Defense Program (FYDP). To accelerate understanding and collaboration, the UVAS Working Group facilitated a workshop on March 22 at Carderock to discuss the development, testing, fielding and sustainment of the PMS 406 portfolio. During breakout sessions, teams brainstormed their ideas to explore the gaps and opportunities for unmanned systems in the areas of core technologies; business and acquisition; integrated logistics support; test and evaluation; ashore and afloat facilities; and sustainment. Small said he intends to use the results of the workshop as a foundation for a series of ongoing collaborative efforts that will expand outward to other organizations, ensuring the success of PMS 406’s portfolio across the life cycle. “How do we develop unmanned systems far cheaper than we currently are producing them today, and how can we affordably assemble, field and operate multidomain systems in large numbers?” McAllister said. “When you deploy low-cost capability en masse at an adversary, the cost imposition shifts against the adversary, and our superiority in every encounter is the most likely outcome. Expendability should be a key driver where it makes sense.” Get more information about the Navy from U.S. Navy Facebook or Twitter.

A quarter-century of naval partnership: U.S., Thailand kick off 25th CARAT exercise By PO1 Gregory Johnson Commander, Logistics Group Western Pacific Public Affairs

S

ATTAHIP, Thailand (NNS) – The U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard and Royal Thai Navy and Marine Corps kicked off the 25th annual Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) during an opening ceremony at Sattahip Naval Base May 29. CARAT, the U.S. Navy’s oldest and longest-running regional exercise in South and Southeast Asia, strengthens partnerships between regional navies and enhances maritime security cooperation throughout the Indo-Pacific. The Royal Thai Navy has been a part of the annual CARAT series since the exercise began in 1995. “Thailand is a key partner and an enduring ally,” Rear Adm. Joey Tynch, commander, Task Force 73, said. “Every opportunity we have to train with our Thai partners is an investment in our relationship, as well as our capabilities. Over 25 years, CARAT continues to evolve and remains the premier venue for the U.S. and partner navies to work together and address shared maritime security concerns.” “CARAT represents the good relationship between the Royal Thai Navy and U.S. Navy,” Rear Adm. Paisarn Meesri, commander of Frigate Squadron 2, said. Hundreds of Sailors and Marines from both nations will come together this year to participate in the exercise’s 11 days of onshore and at-sea training. The exercise features a ro-

bust sea phase with surface warfare maneuvering tactics, visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) drills, mobile dive and salvage training, gunnery exercises, submarine tactics, explosive ordinance disposal (EOD) and minesweeping and maritime patrol operations. The shore phase will involve hands-on training in VBSS led by the U.S. Coast Guard, combat marksmanship, riverine tactics, medical training, jungle warfare and subject matter expert exchanges in medicine, aviation, law, EOD and maritime domain awareness (MDA). “The Royal Thai Navy recognizes the importance of MDA,” Capt. Yuthanavi Mungthanya, Royal Thai Navy MDA lead said. “This topic will be very worthwhile for both navies. We will be able to discuss and share about MDA in an open environment.” Additionally, outreach events throughout the duration of the exercise in local schools and community centers, along with joint band performances at multiple venues by the U.S. Navy 7th Fleet Band and the Royal Thai Navy Band, will increase ties with the community.

“With the inaugural CARAT Thailand exercise having occurred in 1995, this year marks a remarkable quarter-century of mutual commitment in ensuring maritime security and stability. We understand how important it is to work together and learn from each other, which allows us to function as a unified and effective maritime force,” Capt. Matt Jerbi, commodore of Destroyer Squadron 7, said. “We are proud to once again train with our friends from the Royal Thai Armed Forces as we operate side-byside in sophisticated and challenging evolutions.” U.S. assets participating in CARAT Thailand 2019 include staff from Commander, Task Force 73 and Commander, Destroyer Squadron 7, USS Patriot (MCM 7), USS Pioneer (MCM

9), USNS Salvor (T-ARS 52), USS Antietam (CG 54), USNS Millinocket (T-EPF 3), Marine Rotational Force-Darwin Task Force, U.S. Navy 7th Fleet Band, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 5 and Naval Environmental Preventive Medicine Unit 6. “The crew of Pioneer is excited to participate in CARAT 2019. We’ve been training as a team to succeed in mine warfare, and CARAT is an excellent opportunity to challenge ourselves,” Lt. Cmdr. Bobby Wayland, commanding officer of Pioneer said. “Many of my Sailors have not worked with the Royal Thai Navy before and are looking forward to sharing ideas during the exercise.” The CARAT exercise series remains a model of cooperation that has evolved in complexity

USS Pittsburgh (SSN 720) arrives in Bremerton for decommissioning From Commander, Submarine Group 9 Public Affairs

BREMERTON, Wash. (NNS) – The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Pittsburgh (SSN 720) arrived at Naval Base Kitsap-Bremerton to commence the inactivation and decommissioning process, May 28. Under the command of Cmdr. Jason Deichler, a Pittsburgh native, the submarine departed Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, Connecticut, and made its first arctic transit for its final homeport change. “We are the first second flight 688 to complete an arctic an arctic transit from Groton to Bremerton for an inactivation,” Deichler

said. “It was an amazing transit, one that it unique to submarines. There aren’t too many people in the history of the world, let alone the submarine force, let alone the Navy, that have done that transit under the ice.” Pittsburgh completed their most recent deployment Feb. 25, 2019. During the deployment, the boat and her crew steamed more than 39,000 nautical miles and conducted three foreign port visits. The submarine’s ability to support a multitude of missions, including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface ship warfare, strike warfare, surveillance and reconnaissance, made Bremerton one of the most capable submarines in the world. “It is a bittersweet feeling to be the last

operational commanding officer of Pittsburgh,” Deichler said. “It is bittersweet to see Pittsburgh come for a final mooring here in Bremerton, but I know it will help the Navy in her future mission as we bring more Virginia-class submarines out online and we get our technology upgraded.” During the inactivation process, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility will de-fuel the submarine, with the hull retained in safe storage until decommissioning. Commissioned Nov. 23, 1985, Pittsburgh is the forth U.S. Navy vessel to be named for the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The boat’s mission is to seek out and destroy enemy ships and submarines and to protect U.S. national interests.

and enables partner navies to refine operations and tactics in response to traditional and nontraditional maritime security challenges. Its continuing relevance for a quarter of a century speaks to the high quality of exercise events and the enduring value of maritime cooperation among allies and partners in South and Southeast Asia. CARAT builds upon other engagements in South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands including Pacific Partnership, the largest annual multilateral humanitarian assistance and disaster relief preparedness mission, Maritime Training Activity Malaysia, Maritime Training Activity Philippines, Pacific Griffin with Singapore and Southeast Asia Cooperation and Training (SEACAT), which involves nearly a dozen partner nations. These engagements bring likeminded naval forces together routinely based on shared values and maritime security interests. As U.S. 7th Fleet’s executive agent for theater security cooperation in South and Southeast Asia, Commander, Task Force 73 and Destroyer Squadron 7 conduct advanced planning, organize resources and directly support the execution of CARAT and other engagements in the region.

Carrier Strike Group Nine completes Exercise Northern Edge 2019

By MC2 Pyoung K. Yi USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) Public Affairs GULF OF ALASKA (NNS) – USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) and select ships from Carrier Strike Group Nine (CSG-9), along with U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army and Marine Corps service members, successfully concluded Exercise Northern Edge 2019 (NE19), May 24, bringing an end to Alaska’s largest biannual joint-military training exercise. The training exercise, which ran from May 13 through 24, was designed to prepare joint forces to respond to crises in the Indo-Pacific. More than 10,000 service members and approximately 250 aircraft from the Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy, from active duty, reserve and National Guard units, participated in the exercise. “Northern Edge was special because it took the Theodore Roosevelt carrier strike group away from our home waters into an operating area we’re not used to exercising in,” Rear Adm. Daniel Dwyer, Commander, CSG-9, said. “The training we received in the Gulf of Alaska will make our strike group a more capable, ready and lethal naval force.” The exercise, hosted by U.S. Pacific Air Forces, was conducted in the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex, which encompassed more than 60,000 miles of airspace throughout Alaska, and included support infrastructure from two Air Force bases. “This is a very demanding operating area and not something we’re used to,” Capt. David Fowler, commodore, Destroyer Squadron 23, said. “We, as a

Navy, need to get acclimated to these regions and work in a joint environment to gain a better appreciation for what our sister services do and what they bring to the table, because should we ever need to truly defend our nation against adversaries, it is going to take all of us working together to achieve that objective.” NE19 provided Theodore Roosevelt personnel and Carrier Air Wing 11 (CVW-11) an opportunity to sharpen their skills and practice operations and techniques. Also, it gave the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group a chance to strengthen relationships with other U.S. military branches and develop cooperative plans and programs with these organizations.

Resort-Style Retirement

“On your high school football team at practice, you train at a certain level. You bring in a cross-town rival and you scrimmage against that team, you raise your game. You exercise at a higher intensity and at a higher level,” Dwyer said. “That’s what it’s like at Northern Edge. We were training with the Air Force and Marine Corps. Every member of this Navy combat team raised their game and was at their best.” The last time an aircraft carrier participated in Northern Edge was 2009. Roosevelt’s presence and accomplishments during NE19 proved it can operate in the Indo-Pacific region and carry out the Navy’s mission anywhere around the globe. “We had a great opportunity to train

as a joint force in a new environment, hone our lethality, and our ability to communicate and operate in a new domain,” Capt. Carlos Sardiello, commanding officer of Theodore Roosevelt, said. “Roosevelt training (in the Gulf of Alaska) helps us to be ready to go wherever, whenever we need to, to operate as a joint force.” NE19 participants served as part of a joint task force to enhance multi-service integration and exercise a wide range of joint capabilities. “Our integration into the joint environment has been nothing short of outstanding,” Dwyer said. “Flawless execution is what I witnessed at every level.” The Navy is deepening its commitments to Artic security and operations in Alaska. The U.S. is an Artic nation and it is incumbent on the Navy to be ready to operate in this part of the world to ensure freedom of navigation and that the Artic remains conflict free, according to Dwyer. “For us to travel from our home waters to the Gulf of Alaska and compete at the highest end of naval combat in this unique and very challenging environment is incredibly impressive,” Dwyer said. Along with Theodore Roosevelt and its embarked CVW-11, four additional Navy ships participated in NE19: USS Russell (DDG 59), USS Kidd (DDG 100), USS John Finn (DDG 113) and USNS Henry J. Kaiser (T-AO 187). Get more information about the Navy from U.S. Navy Facebook or Twitter. For more news from USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71), visit www.navy. mil/local/cvn71.

NAS Whiting Field Summer Safety message

By Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Office

T

he heat is already upon us and many people will venture outside for fun activities with family and friends. Every year as the summer kicks off, the Navy conducts an information campaign to emphasize the prevention of summer-related injuries and to promote safety precautions for off-base and on-base outdoor activities. The 101 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day are designated critical days for safety as this timeframe historically brings an increase in injuries and safety-related incidents. Because of our location near the Emerald Coast in northwest Florida, outdoor activities related to the beach, boating and exposure to the sun for extended times are popular and widespread. The Navy uses the annual 101 Critical Days of Summer campaign to remind team members and families to

focus on mitigating problems that can arise from such summer activities. “No matter what activities you are planning for the summer, you should always have a plan and practice sound risk management prior to engaging in an activity,” NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) Occupational and Safety Specialist Ken Cube said. “Step back and think; ‘Can I get hurt? What are the consequences if something goes wrong?’ ” Cube recommends completing boating safety courses, understanding rip current safety, and knowing the beach flag system prior to trips to the beach. Additionally, everyone should know the signs and treatment of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. “Beat the heat,” Rick Ballinger, NASWF safety manager

said. “Hydration is key. Please take appropriate steps to protect yourself if you are working or playing outdoors this summer by wearing appropriate clothing. Take frequent water breaks, apply sunscreen and never leave kids or pets unattended in vehicles.” Any loss of a team member

is one too many, emphasized NASWF Commanding Officer Capt. Paul Bowdich. The Navy community is encouraged to prepare, plan, and stay safe at all times, especially during the upcoming summer season. This includes using smart and sound judgment, having a back-up plan and

drinking responsibly. For more safety information on the 101 Critical Days of Summer, safety questions and answers, lessons learned, recreation activity safety and water safety, visit the Naval Safety Center website at http://www. public.navy.mil/navsafecen/ Pages/index.aspx.

A group of retired Sailors will gather at the National Naval Aviation Museum in the Blue Angels Atrium tomorrow, June 8 at 1 p.m. to celebrate the long service of BUNO 151891, a Navy C-130 Hercules. With a service career that spanned decades, the plane, known affectionately as simply ‘891,’ has been the workhorse in six different Navy squadrons. In between very brief service as a transport with VR21 and the Blue Angels, 891 served in four other squadrons, providing alternative long range communications support for the Navy’s nuclear deterrence submarine forces. That mission is known as TACAMO, an acronym for Take Charge and Move Out. Sponsoring the 891 celebration is the TACAMO Community Veterans Association (TCVA) whose chartered purpose is to provide fraternal, social and recreational activities for the members and guests and encourage and support the preservation of the history of TACAMO. TCVA has more than 3,000 members, a website and social media virtual gathering places for its members. A TACAMO Hall of Fame, reunions and memorials are just some of the activities TCVA sponsors.

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. President Woodrow Wilson recognized during his first Flag Day address in 1915 that the freedoms the U.S. flag stands for were not 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. Two current / 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 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 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.” Marine CWO Charles W. “Bill” 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-yearold 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 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.” 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

Gosling Games Color Me: ‘These colors don’t run’

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 does not 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.

Thoughts to ponder Only in America ... can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance. Only in America ... are there handicapped parking places in front of our skating rinks. Only in America ... do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters. Only in America ... do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage. Only in America ... do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won’t miss a call from someone we didn’t want to talk to in the first place.

NMOTC Sailors awarded for saving lives By MC2 Michael Lieberknecht Navy Medicine Operational Training Center

T

wo Sailors assigned to detachments of Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) were recently recognized for life-saving actions outside their line of duty. PR2 Destanie Gardner and SO2 Ryan Finn, stationed at Aviation Survival Training Center (ASTC) Patuxent River, Maryland and Naval Special Operations Medical Institute (NSOMI) in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, respectively, were each awarded a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for immediate heroic actions which saved lives. “We are proud and grateful for the opportunity to recognize our Sailors’ lifesaving efforts,” Capt. Theron Toole, commanding officer of NMOTC said.

“A central theme of NMOTC’s missions is saving lives and these two Sailors demonstrated they are prepared to care for others whether it be down the street or downrange.” On March 26, Finn responded to a patient who was experiencing cardiac arrest while on a rooftop in Camden, New Jersey. Upon arriving on scene, Finn quickly found a ladder and climbed up the garage, quickly identifying the man’s symptoms and performed immediate life-saving interventions which brought back the patient’s pulse, being

ultimately critical in saving the man’s life. On April 14, Gardner, while at a department store in California, Maryland, witnessed an elderly lady begin to collapse. “As I was passing the pharmacy section, I saw a woman who seemed a little off so I gave her a second look and noticed that she was beginning to fall into a shelf in the middle of the aisle,” Gardner said. “Her eyes were starting to roll towards the back of her head, at which time she had also began to fall backwards.” Gardner and another bystander lowered the woman to the floor and onto her side. With no pulse or signs of breathing present, Gardner performed CPR until the woman regained her ability to breathe unassisted. Local emergency responders took the woman to a nearby hospital where the patient made

a full recovery. “To be honest, in that moment it did not occur to me as a choice, much less even a second thought,” Gardner said. “She needed help and I happened to be the one to recognize that.” Gardner explained that without training she received from the Navy, she wouldn’t be able to help the woman. “Prior to joining the Navy I did not know how to give CPR,” Gardner said. “Thanks to it being a mandatory requirement every two years, I now know how to properly provide CPR.” NMOTC is part of a healthcare network of Navy medical professionals around the world whom provide highquality healthcare to more than one million eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ships, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

CIWT names domain Civilians of the Quarter By MC2 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

Moreland Thompson

Richard Borgne

The Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) named its 2019 first quarter Civilians of the Quarter (COQ) May 23. Selected were Moreland Thompson, a systems administrator at Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Virginia Beach, Virginia as non-supervisory COQ; and Richard Borgne, an instructor and course supervisor at IWTC Virginia Beach, as Civilian Instructor of the Quarter.

“The CIWT domain encompasses an exceptionally-talented and dedicated team of professionals, and CIWT civilians like Mr. Morland and Mr. Borgne are deeply invested in the execution of our mission and warfighting lethality, readiness and capacity,” CIWT’s Executive Director Jim Hagy said. “We greatly appreciate their enthusiastic perseverance and service to the Navy and our country.” As the primary system administrator for the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) in the command, Thompson successfully maintained and op-

erated a critical intelligence training network that supports 14 Navy and Marine Corps intelligence courses. He led the upgrade and transition of the JWICS system to a virtual desktop environment, completely redesigning the entire network structure to support the upgrade. “Mr. Thompson continues to be one of my top systems administrators in the command, and the leader and linchpin in every evolution that involves the JWICS training network,” Bosworth said. “He is fully deserving of selection as Civilian of the Quarter.”

Bill Hargreaves Fishing Rodeo returns

From www.billhargreavesfishingrodeo.com Once again, get ready for one of the biggest fishing rodeos in Pensacola. The annual Bill Hargreaves Fishing Rodeo will take place over Father’s Day weekend, June 14 to 16. The Bill Hargreaves Fishing Rodeo started in 1971 with 18 anglers on Mother’s Day. Bill Hargreaves started the rodeo as part of a Kiwanis program whose goal was to fight the war on drugs in this country. Hargreaves was then in charge of children’s activities with the Kiwanis and thought that a fishing rodeo would be a good family event. The entry fee for the rodeo was 25 cents and in its first year made only $12.50. From these very humble beginnings, the Hargreaves Rodeo was on its way. Hargreaves believed that involving both parents and children in a family fishing event was the way to help combat drugs, promote the sport of family fishing and strengthen the family unit as a whole. “I thought if I could get to them before they got involved in that stuff, that would be the thing to do,” Hargreaves said.

The rodeo event was changed to Father’s Day weekend due to the suggestion of many mothers who were without husbands and children on Mother’s Day weekend. Plans now start in early January to get this event off the ground and it takes less than a dozen volunteers working hundreds of hours to set the wheels in motion. The Hargreaves Fishing Rodeo has grown into a fourday event, starting with Thursday’s Registration and Captain’s Meeting and ending with the Awards Ceremony and Fish Fry on Father’s Day Sunday. There are approximately 30 fish categories in the Junior Division, awarding prizes in each. The Hargreaves Rodeo awards the most prizes to junior anglers of any rodeo in town. The underlying theme of the rodeo is the children. Bill’s biggest thrill in the fishing rodeo that bears his name, was watching “his kids” having a great time. Registration tickets are $40 for anglers 13 years and older (Open Division), which includes tax and a Fish Fry ticket. Anglers 12 and under fish free (Junior Division).
