USO centers receive $22,000 in donations From Armed Forces Families Foundation

Tailhook “fly-in” ... NAS Pensacola’s Forrest Sherman Field was host June 7 to a group of fleet aircraft – EA-18G and F/A-18, C, E, F and D models – from VFA-31, VAQ-129, VFA-87, VFA-31, VFA-213, VAW-124, VMFA-251 and VMFA(AW)-224. The aircraft, all of which were en route to other routine deployments, stopped over at NASP briefly to give student aviators from NASP and NAS Whiting Field a chance to speak with fleet aviators about the career opportunities involved with specific aircraft and squadron deployments. The fly-in was facilitated by Tailhook Association Vice President Cmdr. Tim Murphy. (Above) F/A-18 variants on NASP’s transient line. Photo by Mike O’Connor (Left) VAQ-137’s Lt. Cmdr.

The NAS Pensacola USO Center and the Northwest Florida Regional Airport USO Center have received donations totaling more than $22,000. The money has been used to renovate and upgrade both of the heavily trafficked centers. Funds were donated by the charitable organization, the Armed F o r c e s Families Foundation (AFFF). Funds for the donation were raised in local Taco Bell restaurants during their annual “Freedom Bells” fundraiser. Two separate events were held June 11 to celebrate the newly updated USO centers, and to thank all those involved. The NAS Pensacola USO Center receives an

The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced that as of June 6, a major update to the Professional Apprenticeship Career Track Program (PACT) section of the Learning and Development Roadmap (LaDR) has been posted to Navy Knowledge Online (NKO). Targeted for what were formerly known as general detail (GENDET) Sailors, the PACT program was launched in 2007 to provide milestones and procedures for first-term enlistees that had not Blues at Fiesta of Five Flags...

According to Tom Smith, enlisted education coordinator for NETC, the first update in the PACT LaDR series, the Engineering PACT (EPACT), was reduced from 35 pages to 15 pages, a significant reduction that makes the roadmap more userfriendly and intuitive. “Based on the feedback we were getting through the LaDR pages on the NKO website, we realized that the apprenticeship tracks should be updated and improved,” Smith said “We are streamlining all of the PACT

Improvements at Navy’s EOD school provide realistic training Story, photo by Lt. j.g. Elizabeth Allen Naval School of Explosive Ordnance Disposal Public Affairs

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE – According to staff and students, improvements made during the past year at the Naval School of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NavScolEOD) Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Division have significantly increased training realism at the school. Upgrade projects included robot training lanes, a structure to simulate night operations for training with the EOD robot, and an obstacle course for students to maneuver through while wearing the bomb suit. Updates were also made to the various scenarios taught at the school, providing added realism. “Until recently, the area that now contains the robot training lanes was covered with trees,” said Army Capt. Nicholas Drury, officer in charge of the IED Division. “Staff, students and instructors volunteered to construct training lanes from material that wasn’t being used.” According to Drury, by using volunteer man-hours for various projects and recycling excess materials, the command avoided significant construction costs for the upgrades. The three new obstacle courses, three emplacement lanes, including roadways, cul-

verts and five test lanes streamline the students’ familiarization with how to maneuver robots over and under obstacles, up staircases, down ramps and through tunnels. While maneuvering the robots, students conduct search procedures, device location, render-safe procedures and evidence collection. “Before the course upgrades, students spent one training day on the previously makeshift training lanes,” Drury continued. “Now, students spend three days working with the robots and one day testing their newlydeveloped proficiency.” The bomb suit familiarization

obstacle course, also constructed using excess materials, provides students an opportunity to don a bomb suit and determine its capabilities, and its limitations, and to improve on their dexterity and situational awareness while in the suit. Suited-up students traverse through low and high bars, walk up and down a flight of stairs, and continue through a culvert in order to place a designated tool. One of the exercise’s learning objectives is knowing when it is safe to remove the suit. “This course builds confidence when wearing the bomb suit,” said EODCS Joseph

barstools and a custom bookshelf. Additionally this center has received a new 50-inch screen TV. AFFF, in conjunction with participating Taco Bell restaurants, has completed numerous projects to support service members and their families across the Southeast. The most recent fundraiser in December brought the total raised to more $1 million. And the USO project offered a good way to support Pensacola area service members and their families. “Our troops’ loved ones are their first line of support.

• Comprehensive reference section. The EPACT LaDR is currently available on NKO and the S-PACT and A-PACT are being revised and will be added in the near future. LaDRs are fleet-focused products that provide guidance to Sailors along a learning and development continuum, starting with attributes on how to be a great Sailor, covering virtually every aspect of the Navy's enlisted work force. These rating-specific online guides assist in the Sailor’s journey, explaining in detail what each Sailor needs to succeed at specific points in their career. The LaDRs include information about certifications embedded into the appropriate rank category for each rating that can help Sailors demonstrate their professional competency.

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.

Severino, non-commissioned officer in charge of the IED division. “Students receive personal protective equipment instruction regarding the suit in a classroom, but the lab portion of instruction is here at the new obstacle course.” Severino added that the most significant recent improvements to training are the new realism and intricate details in the training sites. One of the scenarios includes a bus depot complete with ticket counter, luggage, computer, phones, lockers and a bus. Other sites have structures such as a bank, church, service mart, gas station, coffee shop, post office, diner, day care facilities, pub and hardware store in a strip mall setting; a storage center; a homemade explosives lab; and a mobile home park. Each location has various details in and around the structures to simulate stateside areas, such as storage materials, furniture, dishes, cell phones and magazines. The training site that represents a mud-hut village outside the continental United States is complete with vehicles, fake animals, sleeping quarters and a room set-up for the construction of homemade bombs. “On day 16 of training, I had to wear the bomb suit and investigate suspicious items at a mobile home park,” said Army Spc.

real-world situation.” The course syllabus places students in realistic scenarios and requires them to consider multiple factors; not just how to render-safe ordnance, but also how to minimize explosive effects on the surrounding areas and personnel. “In the scenario, we had to consider the property and the safe evacuation of people, as well as how to interact with local witnesses and law enforcement,” added Pekarski. In addition to the realism of the structures and details inside, students receive training on how to observe not only the items in the rooms they enter, but to also be aware of hidden explosives, or “booby traps.” “We really never know when or where IED attacks are going to take place,” said Drury. “The fact that they are occurring within the United States really reinforces the significance of our training. The bottom line is we need to be prepared.” NavScolEOD, located on Eglin Air Force Base, provides high-risk, specialized, basic and advanced EOD training to more than 2,100 U.S., partner nation military and selected U.S. government personnel each year.

Some days call for a good cry, snacks and reality TV By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

Ever had one of those days when everything just falls into place? Yeah, me neither. A decade ago, my husband and I were in Boston visiting his old college roommate, who was married with children, a job and a mortgage. Our husbands snuck off to drink beer somewhere, so I hung out with the other wife while she went about her day as a stay-at-home mom to three children. Riding in her dingy minivan, I felt a subtle twinge of anxiety. My counterpart was somewhat tensely gripping the wheel, wearing her husband’s jacket, workout pants marred with a blob of dried schmutz, slippers and a pair of broken sunglasses that sat crooked on her face. The floor was strewn with debris – discarded children’s meal toys, juice boxes, crumpled wrappers and tidbits of food. As she chatted about leaving her career as an attorney to raise the children, my mind wandered. What is that schmutz on her pants? Can’t she scrape it off with her thumbnail? With those glasses cocked sideways, she looks like she might suddenly run us all off a cliff. At least if we are stranded in a ravine, we could survive a few days on the old French fries and Skittles under the seats.

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 20 years (and running). Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeatandpotatosoflife.com. She and her family are in the process of transfering from Jacksonville, Fla., to Newport, R.I. Back at her house, she served us some coffee and slumped into a scratched kitchen chair with the newspaper. I could tell that skimming the newspaper was her one selfish indulgences, and depriving her of this little break from her chaotic routine might just sever her precarious hold on sanity. I puttered to allow her time to read. “Hey, listen to this,” she suddenly commanded. “A man filed a missing persons report because his wife disappeared last week. Don’t you know, he found her, happily living in a newly rented apartment. Apparently, she loved him and the kids, but needed a break and just ran away.” My crazed hostess lifted her head from her paper and stared out the window for a few seconds before mumbling, “she ... just ran away.”

“I need to go freshen up a bit,” I lied, and hid in the bathroom in hopes that she would find solace and not a loaded weapon. On the plane ride home, I told myself that I would never have such a cluttered, chaotic life. A few days ago, I was crying like a baby while careening down the expressway in my dirty white minivan. Wearing my standard black work out pants, those ridiculous looking “shape up” shoes, and a fleece jacket adorned with dog hairs, I struggled to see through my tears and the bug guts still enameled on the window from our Memorial Day trip. It had been one of those days. The children sat in their seats, unphased. They had seen this kind of crazed display before and knew I would soon be back to “normal,” which for me was a mental

News of note: Molinari has been named a finalist in the 2013 National Society of Newspaper Columnists competition in the category of online, blog and multimedia columns (under 100,000 monthly visitors). Winners will be announced June 29 at the national conference in Hartford, Conn. Molinari has also been asked to speak on a panel of lifestyles columnists at the conference.

state that vacillated between Supermom and somewhat unstable. The tipping point occurred during an after school conference with my teenage son’s English teacher. News of my son’s academic transgressions, coupled with the normal events of every day life as a military mom – my husband’s long work hours, dirty laundry, the price of gas, dust bunnies, hormones – was just enough to bring me to the brink. But, I didn’t drive our minivan off a cliff or run away. No, much like the old college roommate’s wife up in Boston, I maintained my grip on that invisible thread from which we military moms hang and did what I needed to do to survive the chaos. On that particular afternoon, it only took a good cry, an entire bag of Combos, and two DVR’ed episodes of

“Dance Moms” for me to make a full recovery. Ironically, I was impressed with myself and mothers everywhere, who, despite it all, continue to muster the strength to face one of those days.

T-1 Jayhawk modifications take electronic warfare training airborne By Capt. Ashley Walker 12th Flying Training Wing Public Affairs

The 451st Flying Training Squadron completed the final step of a long journey when a T1A Jayhawk modified for electronic warfare training took flight on a training sortie June 4. This is the first time in Air Force history an undergraduate aviation program has formally incorporated the fundamentals of electronic warfare in flight into their combat systems officer training syllabus. “Incorporating a formalized, airborne electronic warfare training platform is a first for flying training at the undergraduate CSO level,” said Lt. Col. Timothy Moser, the 451st FTS commander. “Eleven years after the original (Chief Staff of the Air Force) vision and after four years of testing, the first official student training flight is a significant accomplishment for the unit and the Air Force.” “The 451st FTS has embraced innovation,” said Gen. Edward Rice, the commander of Air Education and Training Command. “Rather than rest on their laurels, the unit strived to find better ways of doing business, while embracing a culture of cost consciousness. Advances like these enable our nation’s airpower advantage while helping us meet today’s fiscal challenges.” While the 451st FTS, which executes the advanced phase of undergraduate CSO training, has employed the T-1 since 2009, the newest modifications usher in a new era in CSO training. Previously, the electronic warfare portion of CSO training was taught only in a simulator with basic flying skills taught in the

aircraft. With the new modification, the electronic warfare skills are now integrated into the flying where the concepts initially taught exclusively in the simulator are reinforced airborne. The modifications allow the T-1 to hold an additional student and instructor station in the aft section of the aircraft. The aft training stations receive flight information from the aircraft’s avionics, global positioning system, flight instruments and simulated threats are introduced to provide a virtual threat environment to students. The modifications also include new touchscreen consoles that allow instructors to interact with stu-

dents and set up different threat scenarios to better teach students how to identify and react to notional threats while in flight. The addition of the second training station and instructor station allow twice as many student training events to take place in the same amount of sorties, Moser said. “Basic electronic warfare training has never been formally conducted airborne until now,” he said. “And because of the modifications, we’re able to do so without adding any additional sorties, which saves resources and Airmen’s time while enhancing the quality of our training. “The configurability of this

system allows for flexibility in training we’ve never had before – it’s nearly limitless,” Moser said of the system. “All an instructor needs to do is change the configurations in the system and the student can train for practically any scenario in any operational airframe they are eligible for assignment to later. Not only are we getting twice as much accomplished in one sortie, we’re also saving future resources because we won’t have to update the aircraft as frequently to adapt to changing requirements.” “The new modifications prepare students for operational responsibilities in a threat environment, while fostering crew coordination and the ability to problem solve during actual flight,” said Maj. J.D. Shell, the 451st FTS director of staff. “Through innovation, we’ve changed the way the Air Force conducts undergraduate electronic warfare training.” “The training is now more modern and incorporates advances in GPS technology and electronic flight displays, similar to operational aircraft. The result is a better prepared aviator for the operational Air Force,” Shell said. In addition to navigation duties, in operational aircraft CSOs inform aircrew members of threats, provide systems management, verify target identity and release munitions. The new T-1 modification helps teach students those responsibilities by providing simulated synthetic

radar with a virtual target. Instructors aboard the aircraft have the ability to dynamically control threats in real time. The modified T-1 system also has the capability to record and play back the flight data for further evaluation and enhanced flight debriefs. The modified T-1 development and test team, affectionately known as “the Mod Squad,” worked to improve system reliability to make the system more user-friendly for instructors and students. The team, composed of civilian engineers and 451st FTS instructors, worked to automate unnecessary and cumbersome procedures, thereby lowering the chance for instructor-induced errors, and securing valuable training. Following the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission, the Air Force was tasked to consolidate specialized undergraduate navigator, electronic warfare officer and weapons system officer training into one course. The result was the creation of Undergraduate Combat Systems Officer training and the stand up of the 479th Flying Training Group at Naval Air Station Pensacola in 2010. The group is now the sole provider of Air Force CSO training, graduating approximately 350 students per year. Once they’ve completed the program, each graduate is universally assignable, meaning they can be assigned to any aircraft with a CSO crew position in the Air Force fleet.

Battle of Midway vet gets a hand from NHP’s chiefs By MC1 James Stenberg NHP Assisitant PAO

FOLEY, Ala. – A common saying among the Navy’s eternal brotherhood of chief petty officers is “once a chief, always a chief.” That expression was clearly evident when 12 members of Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP) Chief Petty Officers Association (CPOA) arrived May 29 at the home of 94-year-old Charles “Chuck” Wheeler, retired chief, to help with everyday tasks he is no longer able to do. A 28-year veteran, Wheeler served aboard USS Enterprise (CV 6) from May 1941 to February 1944 as an aviation ordnanceman. During that time, the Enterprise participated in numerous engagements against the Japanese navy including the Battle of Midway, the Battle of the Eastern

Solomons, the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands and various other air-sea engagements during the Guadalcanal campaign. “I don’t have the words to express my gratitude in relations to what you all are doing for me,” Wheeler told the group. “Any little thing helps me tremendously. I used to be able to mow the lawn, pick up blown down limbs and leaves and maintain the place.” When the NHP CPOA was approached about the opportunity to assist, they embraced it whole heartedly. “As soon as this was presented to the chiefs, no one in the association hesitated for a second,” said HMC Chi Patrick. “(Helping) is what we do. When a fellow chief needs help, we just do it.” Although the work was not what some people

do the work and who it was done for. As the chiefs arrived, they split up into groups to accomplish several tasks such as mowing the lawn, removing a section of an old fence and digging up fence posts. The group of senior enlisted leaders was eager to help in any way they could. “We’re just doing some yard work and simple home beautification for a retired chief,” said Chief HMC Chris McKenzie. “The fact that he, as a chief, paved the way for who I am today, blows my mind. To think what (vet-

erans) went through so that we could have the luxury that we have today makes me feel really honored to be here.” About halfway through the morning, Wheeler came outside to talk with this new generation of chiefs. “I’m excited, I really am,” said McKenzie. “When I talked to him, he came alive talking about his battle experiences and some of the things he went through. It is one thing to read a history book, but when you can talk to living history, it’s just a phenomenal thing for me. It’s

been a truly great experience.” After several sea stories reminiscing of old times and a few shared laughs, Wheeler returned inside and the chiefs resumed their work. When asked what he thought of Wheeler’s service to the country, LSC Brian Garfield said, “It’s priceless, that’s one of the types of services that can never be repaid. We can only stay committed to make sure we meet the mission all the time like (veterans) did back in that time. We will always be in debt for that service.”

Sailors wearing new ranks at NASWF Story, photo by Jay Cope NASWF PAO

Naval Air Station (NAS) Whiting Field recognized the achievements of soon-to-be-advanced Sailors during a frocking ceremony May 31. More than 20 Sailors were all smiles as they were able to wear the new collar devices for the first time. The frocking ceremony is a Navy tradition that provides the selected Sailors an opportunity to wear the uniform and take on the responsibilities of their new ranks before they are formally advanced. Second class petty officers were frocked to first class, third class petty officers were frocked to second class and airmen were frocked to third class. Each Sailor received a frocking letter from Capt. Matthew Coughlin, NAS Whiting Field commanding officer, which read in part, “Your appointment carries with it the obligation that you exercise increased authority and willingly accept greater responsibility. Occupying now a position of greater authority, you must strive with a renewed dedication toward the valued ideal of service with honor.”

Sailors received frocking letters from Capt. Matthew Coughlin (left, rear) during the frocking ceremony at Naval Air Station Whiting Field May 31. The ceremony marks the selection of the Sailors for advancement and is the first time they are permitted to wear the insignia of their new rank.

Keep fighting to get there. I want to see you all on this stage someday.”

‘Thanks, Dad.’ From U.S. Census Bureau

T

he idea of Father’s Day was conceived slightly more than a century ago by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Wash., while she listened to a Mother’s Day sermon in 1909. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart, a widowed Civil War veteran who was left to raise his six children on a farm. • 3 percent were part of a subfamily living in someone else’s home. • 1.96 million: Number of single fathers in 2012; 16 percent of single parents were men. • 9 percent were raising three or more children younger than 18. • About 44 percent were divorced, 31 percent were never married, 20 percent were separated and 5 percent were widowed. • 42 percent had an annual family income of $50,000 or more. Thinking of you, Dad • 7,368: The number of men’s clothing stores around the country (as of 2010), a good place to buy dad a tie or shirt. •15,542: The number of hardware stores (as of 2010), a place to buy hammers, wrenches, screwdrivers and other items high on the list of Father’s Day gifts. Additionally, there were 6,764

A day in June was chosen for the first Father’s Day celebration, June 17, 1910, proclaimed by Spokane’s mayor because it was the month of Smart’s birth. The first presidential proclamation honoring fathers was issued in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Father’s Day has been celebrated annually since 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed the public law that made it permanent. How many fathers? • 70.1 million: Estimated number of fathers across the nation in 2008, the most recent year for which data are available. • 24.4 million: Number of fathers who were part of married-couple families with children younger than 18 in 2012. • 21 percent were raising three or more children younger than 18 (among married-couple family households only).

home centers across the country in 2010. •21,418: Number of sporting goods stores in 2010. These stores are good places to purchase traditional gifts for dad, such as fishing rods and golf clubs. • 79.1 million: The number of Americans who participated in a barbecue in 2010. It’s probably safe to assume many of these barbecues took place on Father’s Day. Source: GFK Mediamark Research and Intelligence as cited in the Statistical Abstract of the United States: 2012, Table 1240. Stay at home dads • 189,000. Estimated number of stayat-home dads in 2012. These married fathers with children younger than 15 have remained out of the labor force for at least one year primarily so they can care for the family while their wife works outside the home. These fathers cared for upward of 369,000 children.

• 18 percent: In spring 2011, the percentage of preschoolers regularly cared for by their father during their mother’s working hours. Child-support payments $1.9 billion: Amount of child support received by custodial fathers in 2009; they were due $3.5 billion. In contrast, custodial mothers received $19.5 billion of the $31.7 billion in support that was due. 34 percent: Percentage of custodial fathers who received all child support that was due in 2009, not significantly different from the corresponding percentage for custodial mothers, 42 percent. 70 percent: Percentage of custodial fathers receiving noncash support, such as gifts or coverage of expenses, on behalf of their children. The corresponding proportion for mothers was 58 percent.

Father’s Day reflections “It doesn’t matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.” – Anne Sexton “If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation he has a 50 percent chance of being right.” – Bill Cosby “One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.” – George Herbert “It is much easier to become a father than to be one.” – Kent Nerburn

Jokes & Groaners Just 100 years later ... In 1913, fathers pined for the old school, which meant a one-room, red-brick building. Today, fathers pine for old school, which means Dr. J. and Mickey Mantle. In 1913, fathers could count on children to join the family business. Today, fathers hope their children will soon come home from college long enough to teach them how to hook up the router and set up a Twitter account.

Disabled Marine instructor recognized for exceptional service By Jena Stephenson Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Public Affairs

CHERRY POINT, N.C. – Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Marine Unit (CNATTMarU) Cherry Point announced May 31 that one of its instructors was selected the United States Marine Corps nominee for Outstanding Department of Defense Employee with a Disability. Staff Sgt. Zavian Simpson will be officially recognized later this year during an awards ceremony at the Pentagon. Proud of the recognition, Simpson says he has always been dedicated to excellence. “Marines strive in times of tribulation and adversity,” Simpson said. “It’s an incredible and humbling feeling to represent the Corps. When I was a recruit at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island I was taught that ‘Marines improvise, adapt, and overcome.’ The phrase was etched into my brain and it has helped aid me to overcome the difficulties associated with being an amputee. I take no day for granted and am proud to continue my service as a Marine.” The award is part of the National Affinity Groups distinguished service awards which recognizes individual Marines and Marine Corps civilian

employees who distinguished themselves through their professional achievements, significant contributions to their community, and high degree of personal integrity and ethical conduct. “To a Marine like Staff Sgt.

Simpson, mission accomplishment is ensuring his students receive the proper training each and every day,” said Marine Lt. Col. Jaime Gutierrez, commanding officer, CNATTMarU Cherry Point. “He is a fine exam-

ple to future naval aviation maintainers, that a leader can and will overcome any challenge placed in front of them.” Simpson was seriously wounded in the fall of 2005, by an improvised explosive device

(IED) while serving as convoy commander for 2nd Battalion 3rd Marines during a mounted convoy patrol in Afghanistan. Since then, he has overcome the challenge of adapting to the loss of his right leg below the knee and allowed to remain on active duty to continue his Marine Corps career. In 2008, he was promoted to the rank of staff sergeant and awarded the Gung Ho Award for being an inspiration to his fellow Marines while attending the Staff Noncommissioned Officer Academy Career Course. As the senior noncommissioned officer in charge of advanced aircraft electrical systems technicians, he is responsible for the training, qualification, and scheduling of seven electrical systems instructors, and is also the command’s voting assistance officer. “Staff Sgt. Simpson set the standard for a model ‘Wounded Warrior Marine’ by demonstrating that through adversity, a Marine can still conduct his occupational specialty as a Marine, which all others should emulate,” said Michael Applegate, United States Marine Corps director of Manpower Plans and Policy Division.

Blood donors get free steak dinner From OneBlood

Outback Steakhouse has teamed up with OneBlood, the not-for-profit Northwest Florida Blood Services, to thank blood donors with a special summer promotion. Anyone who donates blood or platelets at least two times between June 1 and Sept. 30, will receive a free steak dinner courtesy of Outback Steakhouse. Plus, donors also will be entered into the “Outback for a Year” drawing. The winner will receive two $20 Outback gift vouchers every month for a year. Outback Steakhouse is partnering with OneBlood in an effort to increase summer donations and

help shine a spotlight on the constant need for blood donations. A surprising statistic is that 39 percent of people are eligible to donate blood, but only about 5 percent give. “At Outback we are inspired by those who selflessly volunteer to donate blood. We are thankful for the impact that it has on those receiving blood so they can lead healthy, normal lives. It gives us a great sense of pride to have that kind of impact on our communities,” said Jeff Smith, president of Outback Steakhouse. Blood donations are always needed, especially during the summer when donations become more challenging due to vacations and school breaks.

Every two seconds someone needs a blood transfusion in the United States. Blood donations profoundly affect the lives of patients in the local community and in many cases one donation can save up to three patients. All donors receive a wellness check-up including blood pressure, pulse, temperature, iron count and a cholesterol screening each time they give blood. Generally, healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. To find out more about the Outback summer promotion go to www.oneblood.org/Outback.
