NASP commemorates Battle of Midway By Ed Barker NETC PAO

Area Navy commands and the local community remembered the Battle of Midway during a ceremony held at the National Museum of Naval Aviation onboard NAS Pensacola June 4. Hosted by the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT), the commemorat i o n ceremony honored the service of those who fought in the decisive World War II battle 73 years ago. Capt. Katherine Erb, CNATT commanding officer, welcomed the guests and noted that observances like the Battle of Midway commemoration play an important part in high-

lighting the Navy’s history. “Part of our mission as naval professionals is to preserve and celebrate our rich naval history and heritage,” said Erb. “Understanding our past is key to developing strategies to handle the challenges of the future, and is fundamental to building and operating the Navy and Marine Corps forces our nation requires.” Considered by many military historians to be the turning point of World War II in the Pacific theater, the Battle of Midway was fought in the vicinity of Midway Island June 4-7, 1942. As a response to their sending planes to attack the U.S. base at Midway, Imperial Japanese Navy aircraft

DoD notified of OPM cybersecurity incident From DoD News Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON (NNS) – The U.S. Office of Personnel Management announced June 4 a recent cybersecurity incident affecting its systems and data that may have exposed the personal information of current and former federal employees. According to a Defense Department

news release, OPM subsequently notified federal government departments and agencies, including the DoD. OPM is notifying approximately 4 million individuals whose personally identifiable information may have been compromised, the release said. The notifications are being sent and will continue through

June 19 by e-mail and U.S. mail. OPM will offer affected individuals credit monitoring services and identity theft insurance through CSID, a company that specializes in identity theft protection and fraud resolution, the release said. This comprehensive, 18-month membership includes credit report access, credit monitoring, identity theft insurance and recovery services and is available immediately at no cost to affected individuals

NASP teen named Florida Military Youth of the Year By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

Officials at the Naval Air Station Pensacola Youth Center have an outstanding reason to celebrate. Jayla Bradley, a member of NASP’s Boys & Girls Club, has been selected as the Florida Military Youth of the Year for the Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA). Seven other military bases were represented at the competition, which was held in May in Miami Beach. It was a great experience for the 17-year-old. “It was absolutely amazing,” she said. “It was just wonderful – everything about it. It was kind of surreal, like I could not believe it was happening in a sense.” Bradley has been active in BGCA for several years, and she said the Youth of the Year program has allowed her to tell her side of the story as a military child.

Jayla Bradley

“I just want to tell them what they have done for me and what I am giving back,” she said. Her story includes frequent moves – to Jacksonville, South Carolina, Mississippi and Yokosuka, Japan. In Japan, she was active in athletics, color guard, a dance team and the student council, and when she had to

move to Pensacola in August of last year it was a big challenge. She said being a member of BGCA has been very helpful. “I know they help me a lot with my homework and they help me a lot with my maturity,” she said. “Basically, like calming me down, keeping me out of trouble.” And she has formed many friendships through BGCA. “All my friends I met pretty much working at the teen center,” she said. In the past year, she has been busy completing her senior year and forming a step team at her high school, but she always made time to work at the teen center. “I enjoy working with the younger kids here,” she said. “It is really fun.” And she said mentoring other children is a way of returning the favor for the help she was given while she was growing up.

New FY-15 GMT Guidance From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced that effective June 1, FY15 requirements for several General Military Training (GMT) training lessons are no longer mandatory for completion via Navy Knowledge Online (NKO) and Navy eLearning, and may be delivered through alternate methods. According to Rear Adm. Mike White, NETC commander, based on fleet feedback

and in line with the GMT initiative from the Secretary of the Navy, command triads are encouraged to evaluate their GMT needs and use appropriate methods to provide this training. “We are empowering the command triads to choose the type of training relevant for their Sailors,” said White. “They know their Sailors best and understand what training is needed to positively impact their lives, and to support their command mission.” GMT lessons which

carriers were fatally damaged by dive bombers from USS Enterprise (CV 6) and USS Yorktown (CV 5). Four Japanese carriers were sunk, and 3,057 Japanese personnel were killed in the conflict, at the cost of the Yorktown and 307 American personnel. Compelled by their losses, the Japanese were forced to abandon their plans to capture Midway and retired westward. This decisive win for the U.S brought an end to Japanese naval superiority in the Pacific. Col. Eric Buer, commanding officer of Marine Aviation Training Support Group 21, was the guest speaker for the Battle of Midway commemoration and focused his remarks on how America’s young men and their machines were able to triumph over a seemly unsurmountable force and invincible foe. He addressed the standingroom-only crowd that included several surviving veterans of Midway. “We are here today not only to remember the great importance of the Battle of Midway, but to remember those who suffered and sacrificed, and those like our shipmates here in the front row who continue to sacrifice,” said Buer. “The story of Midway is about courage, about hope, about conviction and about leadership.” During the ceremony, a wreath was placed to honor the memories of those who lost their lives during the battle. Midway veteran guests at the event included AMC Gordon Pierce, AO1 Wiley Bartlett, Radioman 1st Class James Stofer, Petty Officer Leon Resmondo and Barbara Wheeler, wife of the late AOC Charles Wheeler. For Pierce, attending the ceremony was bittersweet. It brought back memories of his shipmates, many of whom have passed away in recent years. “When I think back to previous years’ ceremonies, it saddens me to think of how many of my fellow Sailors are gone now and cannot be here,” he said. CNATT is the largest learning center under the Naval Education and Training Command and is accredited by the Council on Education. Its mission is to develop, deliver, and support the aviation technical training necessary to meet validated fleet requirements through a continuum of professional and personal growth for Sailors and Marines.

Some education, training internet applications unavailable June 13, 27 By NETPDTC PAO

As part of the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center’s (NETPDTC) annual Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) test for the Saufley Data Center, some Navywide internet applications will be unavailable on the morning of June 13 and the morning of June 27. “It is very important that critical systems for the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) regularly exercise their ability to function properly at the COOP location,” said Charlie Tibbs, director of operations and infrastructure for NETPDTC. “The outages

will be fairly short as systems transfer and remain active in Great Lakes, Ill., and also as they return operations to the Saufley Data Center in Pensacola two weeks later.” According to Robyn Baker, NETC Command Information Officer (CIO), COOP testing is vital for the training enterprise to function in case of outside interruptions. “The data center services NETC training around the world and the annual tests verify that the systems will function properly at the COOP location in the event of a hurricane, disaster, or other emergency,” said Baker. “We’ve scheduled the transfers on weekends to minimize the impact to our customers.”

Applications which will be unavailable June 13 and 27 include: • Corporate Enterprise Training Activity Resource System (CeTARS) • Fund Administration and Standardized Document Automation (FASTDATA) • Navy e-Learning (NeL) For more information about the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center, visit the NETPDTC website at: https://www. netc. navy. mil/netc/netpdtc/ Additional information about the Naval Education and Training Command is available by visiting: https://www. netc. navy.mil.

Former Blue Angel honored ... Hollywood producer and former Blue Angel pilot E. Duke Vincent was honored June 9 for his support of the static display F/A-18 near the NAS Pensacola main gate. Vincent has strong memories of being a part of the Blues. “Fifty-five years ago,” Vincent said, “my life changed. I was in my bachelor officers quarters in Jacksonville, Fla. And the phone rang. The man on the other end of the phone was the boss of the Blue Angels ... ‘I’ve already cleared this with your skipper and with Washington, and we’ve taken a vote, and we want you to join the team. How soon can you be in Pensacola?’ And I said, ‘Hang up the phone and answer the door.’ Since that time I’ve had the good fortune to have much success. But I can honestly say there has been nothing in my career that compared with the ’60-’61season when I had the honor to fly with these guys ... God bless America.” Photos by Mike O’Connor

‘keepers’ of our personal information are. That being said, everyone needs to cyber-educate themselves. Be aware of what you are doing to avoid being pulled into Internet phishing traps and schemes to turn over personal information to criminals.”

Borlan also urged personnel to stay on top of their credit, a prime target for cyber criminals. “If you haven’t checked your credit report before, now is the time to start, and make checking it an ongoing responsibility,” he said. According to the release,

Bradley is thankful for all of the support she has received from the Youth Center and NASP Youth Director Monica Foxall. Foxall said everyone at the Youth Center is happy about the recognition that Bradley has received. “We are so over the moon,” Foxall said. “We are so excited for Jayla and the Pensacola Youth Center.” But Bradley’s top fan is her mother, RPC(SW/AW/SCW/MTS) Melanise Bradley, who is the leading chief petty officer at the NASP Command Chapel office. “I am very excited,” she said. “I already knew she could do it. She is an outstanding person. She’s my hero. She says I’m her hero, but she is my hero.” A recent Pine Forest High School grad, Jayla was awarded a $5,000 scholarship, a laptop and printer – things that are greatly appreciated, as she is getting ready to leave for her a freshman year at the University of Florida. She hopes to be a biomedical engineer. She was also recently awarded a $2,000 scholarship from the Defense Commissary Agency’s Scholarships for Military Children program. And there could be more honors in her future. She is scheduled to participate in the regional Youth of the Year event later this month in Atlanta. Five regional winners and a military winner will advance to the national competition in Washington, D.C. Participants can win additional scholarship money. The teen chosen as the National Youth of the Year will serve as a BGCA ambassador for a year. No matter what happens in the future, she plans to remain involved in the BGCA program. “I love the Boys and Girls Club and everything that they have done,” she said.

While no longer mandatory, the information in several topics is important for Sailors and command leaders may decide that the training could be delivered in alternate methods, such as partnering with local Fleet and Family Service Centers. To support these needs, the online sessions will remain available for domestic violence, stress management, and operational risk management. There are certain legal, congressional and DoD required training topics that still must be completed annually, and are available via Navy eLearning and NKO. These include Privacy and PII awareness, records management, and antiterrorism/force protection, to name a few. A complete list is available on the GMT page on NKO. In addition, there are a few lessons that are mandatory for faceto-face delivery. These include Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) and suicide prevention, among others. According to Bill Marvel, NETC GMT program manager, NKO remains a valuable resource for GMT lesson delivery. “Although several of the lessons are no longer required to be completed using NKO or Navy eLearning, they’ll continue to be an available option for commands as the information in this training remains relevant in a number of critical areas that impact individual Sailors and the overall health of our force,” said Marvel. Marvel added that the list now posted to NKO supersedes the requirements contained in the FY-15 General Military Training Schedule (NavAdmin 202/14), and the plan for FY16 training will be communicated via a NavAdmin message later this summer.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

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

Take time to prepare home as hurricane season begins By Carrie Stevenson Escambia County Extension Agent

W

ith the commencement of summer also comes the beginning of hurricane season (June 1-Nov. 30). For most, your home is your biggest investment and relied upon to keep families safe from the elements. The worst storms typically arrive in August and September, so early summer leaves plenty of time to prepare and make upgrades to your home. One of the most important investments one can make is protection of “openings,” or windows and doors. A breach through a door or window can double the uplift pressure in a house, causing a roof to lift up or off. It’s therefore extremely important to find a way to keep that wind and pressure out of your home. There are many options for providing window protection, ranging in cost from less than $100 to more than $900 per window. First, keep in mind that the well-intentioned-yet-pointless practice of taping windows does nothing to protect them. According to a survey conducted by the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes

How to submit a commentary

(FLASH), 70 percent of adults polled believed this was an effective practice. Tape will not prevent windows from being broken, but could result in larger, more dangerous shards of glass flying around and causing worse damage. If you know someone who relies on taping windows for protection, please suggest they use a different method and direct them to the research. FLASH’s “Go Tapeless” campaign has a wealth of information on this common misconception and information on effective hurricane mitigation measures. Window protection comes in a wide variety of materials and installation measures. Most common are plywood shutters. These do not afford the best protection when compared to other methods, but if installed correctly they can be helpful. If using plywood, there are several guidelines to go by. Be sure to: • Use at least 7/16-inchthick wood.

BRACE: Hurricane prep day June 13

The Windstorm Damage Mitigation Training and Demonstration Building in Escambia County is one of four training centers at extension service offices around the state.

• Buy and cut the wood early; you don’t want to wait until a storm comes to try buying when demand is high and supplies are low. • Use treated wood to prevent termite damage during storage. • Add a 4-inch overlap on each side of the window when measuring, so that fasteners can attach directly into wall studs around windows. • Use bolts or anchors, not nails. Additional methods with better success but higher costs include permanently attached roll-down shutters, fabric panels, accordion shutters, removable storm panels from metal or polycarbonate materials, and impact-resistant windows. The fabric panels and metal/polycarbonate storm panels are a typical part of Rebuild Northwest Florida’s “full envelope” method of home protection. This program cov-

ers 75 percent of the total cost of installing multiple windstorm mitigation measures and typically results in a reduction in insurance rates. If you seek to add new windstorm mitigation measures to your home and are not doing the work yourself, be sure to seek out a licensed and insured contractor. The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation maintains searchable records of contractors licensed to work in Florida. To see examples of many of the wind protection measures and other mitigation methods, visit the demonstrations at the Escambia County Windstorm Mitigation building and pick up a Homeowners’ Handbook at the University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Escambia County Extension office at 3740 Stefani Road in Cantonment.

CNATT Detachment Whiting provides advanced aviation ordnance expertise for the fleet Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Andrew DeGarmo Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

F

rom a standard classroom to computer simulations, and even a simple sandbox – the staff at the Center for Naval Air Technical Training (CNATT) Detachment at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) uses blended training techniques to meet fleet training requirements for aviation ordnance officers. When the Aviation Ordnance Officer Career Progression (AOOCP) level I class graduated recently, 20 senior ordnance experts were ready to join aviation units around the world. Lt. Cmdr. Kevin Bittle, officer in charge of CNATT Detachment Whiting, said that the ordnance officers the detachment graduates are vital to fleet operations. “Before aviation-capable Navy and Marine Corps units can deploy, they require highly-trained and skilled aviation ordnance officers and senior enlisted personnel. These warriors receive a good portion of that training from the curriculum and instruction provided by AOOCP.” The ordnance career progression curriculum includes three course levels, providing advanced aviation ordnance training for Marine Corps and Navy senior enlisted and officer

ordnance personnel. Level I training is six weeks long and Levels II and III are each two weeks long. Level I training includes a basic introduction into the movement of munitions and the ordnance responsibilities of an aviation ordnance officer, and is six weeks long. As part of a career progression of training, the course builds upon previous acquired skills. The continuum of training continues as Level II deals with explosive safety inspections (ESI) and Level III includes a logistics war game. “Throughout the different levels of AOOCP, there are a number of classroom exercises and hands-on labs,” said Marine Maj. Ken Aikey, AOOCP course director. A tabletop exercise uses a “sandbox” to challenge the Sailors and Marines to show their knowledge of safety and mission elements. “During one sandbox

exercise, the students are assigned an installation and must design a safe area for ordnance,” explained Aikey. “Students are given props and draw in the sand to simulate runways, buildings and roadways.

Whiting’s golf course closes after 67 years By Jay Cope NASWF Public Affairs

S

eeing the orange-and-white training aircraft taking off over the sixth hole will be a sight sorely missed by the avid golfers of Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) now that the Frank W. Dahlinger Golf Course has closed its gates. The 67-yearold course said farewell to its last patrons May 31. First opened in 1948, the golf course was originally built by Navy Sea Bees as a nine-hole course which was later expanded to 18 holes in 1965. Placed next to the east/west runway of the installation’s North Field, the steady traffic of airplanes flying over the course was one of the unique aspects of play there. “It is truly disappointing to have to oversee the closure of a Naval Air Station Whiting Field landmark, however, financially, the course is unsustainable and simply costs more to operate than the revenue it brings in,” NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau stated. The golf course has run in the red for many years and is not a self-sustaining operation as directed by Navy guidelines on such facilities. During the years, a combination of an economic downturn, strengthened base security posture and the rise in cost of expenses have resulted in an inability of the course to break even financially. The decision to close the course was made back in February, but the facility was kept open to ensure patrons had an opportunity to get a few rounds in before closing. The final weekend was a flurry of activity to do just that as the NASWF Navy Ball

committee hosted a final tournament May 29 and the base featured 1948 pricing of $3 per round walking and $6 per round with cart Sunday. Both events were extremely successful with more than 90 participants in the tournament and a banner day of more than 110 golfers May 31. The final golfers stepped off the venerable course around 8 p.m. with Marine Sgt. Jordan Perry, Jacob Perry and Chris Martilliano the group taking the final strokes.

Thanks to the efforts of the MWR staff and the strong turnout, the Navy Ball Committee was able to raise more than $2,000 for the event. Although play has stopped on the course, much of the work required to close the course still has to be completed. Throughout the last six months, the emphasis has continued to be on providing golfers a quality course and good playing experience. Now the focus shifts to transferring or dispens-

ing of equipment, closing out inventory, and doing a final clean-up of the course. Most of the equipment is slated for transfer to other installation golf courses throughout the region, although some will be retained for grounds maintenance and some will be sold via sealed bids. Much of the acreage will be allowed to go back to nature, although areas near the airfields will be kept clear and the land around Mulligans will be maintained. Future uses for the old course have yet to be determined although a fitness trail or paintball course have been discussed. MWR is performing a feasibility study to determine the costs versus the benefits of such endeavors. Other ideas are welcome and may be submitted through the CO suggestion boxes around the base or online. Since most future uses would fall under the same fiscal requirements as the golf course, interest by patrons in using a proposed new facility would be of extreme importance to the MWR staff.

“I very much would like to see what people think is a good idea,” said MWR Director Joe Vukovcan. “We are already looking at other facilities around the region to see what works at their installations.” One hope is that Mulligan’s will continue to draw enough patrons to expand its use to a Community Center type of complex. Already, it is available for rent to use for parties or receptions that warrant a more intimate setting than Sikes Hall. Mulligans is keeping lunch hours from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and is actually expanding its menu options and specials. The driving range will also stay in operation and will be available to patrons for free use. Range balls will be provided for as long as they last. Placed on the Florida Heritage Trail of historic golf courses in 2014, it is disappointing for many people to see this piece of NAS Whiting Field history fade away. The course was named for a former Training Squadron Three (VT-3) command-

ing officer who died during a training accident in 1986. Cmdr. Dahlinger and Ens. Thomas Washington crashed a T-34 aircraft at Summerdale Airfield in Alabama. In the short nine months he was in command of the squadron, more than 680 students trained with VT3 and the unit earned the Training Effectiveness Award from the Chief of Naval Air Training. Before the final tournament, Bahlau emphasized that closing the facility was one of the hardest decisions he ever had to make as a commanding officer, and assured the players that Dahlinger and the course would be remembered in some fashion. A 34-page petition to keep the Dahlinger Golf Course displayed its popularity with the local area, and Vukovcan knows the course cannot readily be replaced. “The course was a tremendous MWR facility for 67 years,” he said. “We will work hard to ensure that what comes next will also be a great asset to the Whiting Field team.”

Flag Day

Flag Day honors American ideals, sacrifices By Donna Miles American Forces Press Service

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.

O

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 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-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 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 Ameri-

cans. 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. Air Force Col. David M.

Roeder – Iranian hostage crisis Now-retired 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.”

T

he executive officer of the U.S. Navy’s premier

dent of the largest aerospace medicine organization during a ceremony in Orlando May 14. Capt. Kris Belland

Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) Executive Officer Capt. Kris Belland took up the position of president of the office of Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA) during a ceremony and said the privilege of holding the position is an honor he sees as a testament to the training, leadership and integrity he received during the 25 plus years of his Navy career. “AsMA is the front runner in aerospace medicine knowledge and theory, and it is an honor to be selected president of this organization from among the best and brightest minds in their respected fields,” Belland said. “This organization represents the leadership in aerospace medicine, and I’m honored to be a part of keeping our pilots – military and civilian alike –

safe.” Belland is one of the very few qualified as both a flight surgeon and Navy pilot. He earned his naval aviator wings in 1997 and was qualified in the F/A-18 Hornet.

tional, and scientific purposes. It is a place created for a variety of disciplines to unite and share their insights to globally benefit all persons involved in air and space travel. The association has provided its expertise to a multitude of federal and international agencies on a broad range of issues, including aviation and space medical standards, the aging pilot and the physiological stresses of flight. AsMA’s membership includes aerospace medicine specialists, flight nurses, physiologists, psychologists, human factors specialists, physician assistants and researchers. Aerospace medicine con-

cerns the determination and maintenance of the health, safety and performance of persons involved in air and space travel. As a broad field of endeavor, aerospace medicine offers challenges and opportunities for physicians, nurses, physiologists, bioenvironmental engineers, industrial hygienists, environmental health practitioners, human factors specialists, psychologists and other professionals. Those in the field are dedicated to enhancing health, promoting safety, and improving performance of individuals who work or travel in unusual environments. Belland is a United States Naval Academy graduate and is board certified in family medicine and aerospace medicine. He has served in multiple oper-

ational aviation assignments including the aircraft carriers USS Midway (CV 41), USS Independence (CV 62), and USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70). He is a Fellow and former vice president of AsMA. He has served on various AsMA committees and has awards committee. NMOTC, the recognized global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training, reports to Navy Medicine Education and Training Command (NMETC), which manages Navy Medicine’s formal enlisted and officer education and training programs, medical operational training for medical and medical support personnel deploying worldwide, and training that prepares aviators and flight crews to survive in land and water mishaps. NMOTC and NMETC are all part of the Navy Medicine team, a global health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide high-quality health care to more than 1 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.

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