NASP cleans up following record rainfall From staff reports
Torrential rains over the weekend of June 9-10 dumped an unprecedented amount of water on NAS Pensacola and surrounding areas. Some housing areas and Naval H o s p i t a l Pensacola (NHP) offices have been affected by the deluge, and base and hospital officials are working to minimize the storm’s damage. NASP Emergency Manager Burt Fenters put the rainfall totals in perspective. “We just experienced something that happens on average every 100 years,” Fenters said. “On and off installation drainage ponds are built to handle average rainfall amounts; but nothing like
we saw last weekend. “The base measured 14.6 inches of rain from early Saturday through Sunday evening. West Pensacola reported 23.58 inches. Our off-installation housing known as Mariner Village was affected. We had to evacuate approximately 29 families S a t u r d a y evening and house them temporarily in Navy Gateway Inns and Suites. By Sunday some residents returned. Others are currently weighing their options for return or relocation,” Fenters said. At NHP, direct patient care was unaffected by the flooding, according to hospital spokesman Rod Duren.

NORU supply team winners of base ‘biggest recycler’ contest By Joelle O’Daniel-Lopez NavFac SE
Naval Air Station Pensacola Complex’s Recycle Center hosted a successful recyclingdrive and competition May 1017 to determine “who was the biggest base recycler?” in observance of Earth Day. LSC Annette Durham and Ignacio Cruz of NORU (Navy Recruiting Orientation Unit) Supply were the winners, bringing in 2,659 pounds of recycling. A staggering 9,459 pounds was collected by all of the teams competing. This is the first year the installation has had such a competition with volunteers from the Fire and Emergency Services Gulf Coast, Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC), NASP Port Operations, Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC, N613),

NATTC (Ops), NASP IT Department, NETPDTC (N616), NORU Supply, NATTC/ (ATC/MT), and NAS Pensacola Public Works all contributing to the project. A rematch is being considered, since NATTC at the
“Mega Building” was a close second with 2,582 pounds. The competition was part of ongoing efforts to reduce solid waste and increase recycling at NASP. Recycling benefits everyone by creating demand for new industries and jobs,
preserving landfill space, reducing pollution and conserving resources by reducing demand. Recycling and reducing solid waste directly helps our installation save money by reducing fees associated with disposal while returning money to Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) and sustaining the recycling program. Every contribution to recycling program helps the installation work toward meeting Executive Order 13514, which established diversion rates of 50 percent for federal agencies by Fiscal Year 2015. Since NAS Pensacola as the Cradle of Naval Aviation is a starting point for many personnel, it’s hoped that recycling habits here will continue on to other commands further aiding the Navy to meet agency and federal recycling goals. The Recycle Center can be contacted at 452-2028 for further information.
NHPʼs new gate set to open ... The front entrance at Naval Hospital Pensacola is about ready for prime time. NHP’s main entrance at U.S. Highway 98 will tentatively reopen to traffic beginning Monday morning, June 18. The upgrade project, which began May 7, was to more effectively handle the traffic flow and add security measures. Navy medicine mandated the new security measures and those entry-point changes were the first since the opening of the outpatient building in 2001. Since the entry-point closure of the main gate, the parking area in front of the main hospital building for customers has opened and has spaces available most of the business day. The area had been set aside for staff and volunteers; but now is for hospital customers only in the area adjacent to the main hospital building entrance and the outpatient clinic. Photo by Rod Duren

“Naval Hospital Pensacola sustained moderate damage to administrative offices and equipment, supplies and furniture, as a result of this past weekend’s nearly historical rainfall,” Duren said. “Direct patient care areas were not affected whatsoever, and the hospital remains fully staffed and continues to provide excellent patient-care services.” At NHP, the damage was caused by a ruptured four-inch drain pipe on the third floor that was overcome by the rain on June 9. The damaged areas were primarily on the first three floors of the main hospital building’s northside that primarily houses administrative offices, the hospi-

If you have to move, you might as well enjoy the ride By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer
As the school year ends, some families look forward to having fun on a summer vacation. But for military families, summer means it is time to get moving. The period of May 15 to Aug. 31 is the annual peak move season, according to officials at NAVSUP Global Logistics Support (GLS) Household Goods (HHG) as hundreds of thousands of servicemen and women receive orders to new assignments. As a Navy brat, I have some experience with moving. My family made 18 moves in 28 years. When I get together with my siblings – two sisters and one brother – there is always a competition to see who can remember all of the houses where we lived. We were experts at moving, mainly because my mother was extremely organized. She always had a checklist to follow and everyone had to help. Getting rid of excess items was the first thing on the list. Mom would put everything we owned on our beds and say, “You can take half of what’s there.” I am always jealous of friends who have collections of dolls or other toys from their childhood. I only have one small box of mementos that I managed to keep. But moving was always a great adventure. We always took one last run through the old house before departing and then we raced through the empty halls of the new house when we arrived. The sounds that echo through any empty house still make me smile. Our drives across the country were like extended camping trips involving a variety of station wagons, tents and trail-

ers. We visited many national parks and famous landmarks and got to spend time with family members in many parts of the country. We logged a lot of miles and had to entertain ourselves by reading or with activities such as the “License Plate Game,” a contest to see who could spot the most plates from different states. Songs like “The Ants Go Marching” also were a good distraction. This was before iPads and DVD players came along. My favorite road trip story is from before I was born. My parents had to move from Kodiak, Alaska, to San Diego, Calif., with six-week-old twin babies and an 18-month-old toddler. They drove at night when it was cooler and made beds for the children by installing portable cribs in the back seat of my father’s prized 1951 Hudson Hornet. When the sun came up, they would stop, wash diapers, feed the babies and try to get some sleep before they would have to load
back up for the next leg of the journey. I’m kind of glad I missed that trip. Then there’s the canoe story. My father spent 200 hours building a canoe by hand, but moving recreational equipment was not allowed. So we told the movers that it was a flower pot. There was no problem after that. Our pets did not fare as well. Once, we had a beagle named Princess. A few days before we were scheduled to move, my parents told us that Princess had “run away.” We searched everywhere, but we had to leave without her. Years later, the truth came out. My sister and I overheard my mother telling a group of Navy wives that they gave Princess to a farmer because they thought it would better for everyone involved. My sister and I both chimed in: “You mean Princess didn’t run away?” I also remember Panther, the nervous black cat that clung to the seat behind
my father on a road trip from California to Virginia. Poor Panther really did run away after that trip. Most of my memories related to my family’s military moves are good, but I do have one lingering aftereffect. Every two years or so, I get a feeling that I need to pack up and move somewhere. Let’s hope, the military families that have to move this summer will all have positive experiences. The NavSup Global Logistics Support (GLS) Household Goods (HHG) services has initiated a social media campaign – using YouTube and Facebook – to help families deal with moving, shipping and storing household goods.

‘Summer Salute V’ co untry concert
Free NAS Pensacola MWR show with special guests Jason Sturgeon, Brooke Woods rocks crowd estimated at 13,000 Photos by Billy Enfinger From NASP MWR
Country super-group Diamond Rio kicked off NAS Pensacola MWR’s “Summer Salute V” concert series June 1 on the Portside lawn at NAS Pensacola. This is the fifth year for the concert series presented by NAS Pensacola Morale, Welfare and Recreation office. Officials with Morale, Welfare and Recreation at NASP said about 13,000 people turned out for the show. Diamond Rio has had 32 hit singles with four number ones including “Meet in the Middle,” “Beautiful Mess” and “One More Day.” Opening for Diamond Rio was Jason Sturgeon and Brooke Woods. Sturgeon has made waves with the singles “Simple Life” and “The Cover” from his debut album “Real Life,” but his biggest splash has been the country metal tune “Time Bomb,” which was picked to be the theme song for 2012 Monster Truck Nationals Competition. Sponsors for the event included Cat Country 98.7, Pensacola’s KIA Autosport, Pen Air Federal Credit Union, Lewis Bear/Bud Light, Mediacom, NewsRadio1620, Northwest Florida Blood Services, International Paper, Domino,s Pizza, Wing Zone, BMW and Harley Davidson Motorcycles of Pensacola, Plexus Slim, Buffalo Rock Pepsi, Mobile Attic and Hertz Equipment.

International students learn advanced human resource skills Story, photo by Steve Vanderwerff NETC PAO
A class including one civilian and military members from Turkey, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia and Latvia graduated from the international Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education (MPTE) course May 31. The five-week course taught at Naval Education and Training Command Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) International Training Center (NITC) aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola is offered to international partners interested in how the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps manage their complex system of MPTE. The course, in its 10th year, has had 88 students from 23 countries graduate. “The course is offered to officer or senior enlisted and civilian personnel assigned to positions of responsibility in their respective nation MPTE domain,” said Cmdr. Chris Heaney, NITC’s officer in charge. “It’s designed to equip them with the knowledge, skills, and abilities they’ll need to develop, implement, execute and manage innovative solutions for the future.” Experts in military and civilian corporate fields were handpicked to teach the students via lectures, discussions, guest speakers, student presentations and small-group exercises.
Guy Abbate, a civilian instructor at Naval Education and Training Command Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) International Training Center (NITC), discusses Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education (MPTE) course highlights with international students from Turkey, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia and Latvia.
Field trips were carefully selected to provide a maximum learning experience, as well as expose students to U.S. cultural, governmental and historical venues. Student presentations provided opportunities to discuss best practices from their respective organizations, while group exercises allowed them to apply theory and develop problem-solving skills in an interoperative environment that included a final three-day “capstone” exercise. The curriculum included manpower systems and processes, training pipelines, officer and enlisted detailing, force shaping, recruiting, corporate human
resource practices, pay and compensation systems, integrated learning environments, resource allocation, advancement and career paths, supply chain management, measures of success, training for specific deployments, legal concerns for MPTE, personal and professional development, professional military education, MPTE in the acquisition process, selection and promotion and inter-deployment training cycles. “The number one challenge facing a military force in today’s constrained fiscal climate is preserving and enhancing the capability of its most critical asset, its people. To ensure our forces
meet future demands, we must manage our people through agile and flexible human resource programs, services, and solutions,” said Heaney. “This requires innovative approaches to identify the competencies possessed by our people, align those capabilities to the mission, and shape our talent with the right mix of skills, experience, and seniority to deliver required competence at the best value.” The completely revised course provided students with a comprehensive introduction to strategic and operational techniques for the development, management, and improvement of human capital strategies, poli-
cies, and programs in an integrated environment. “The students learned to address the latest challenges through an academically advanced professional military education level course covering complex and interrelated areas of knowledge and practice within the field,” said AMCS John Harris, NITC’s senior enlisted adviser. “However, it wasn’t all classroom driven. The students (also) gained a vast amount of knowledge and information during field trips away from Pensacola.” For armed forces of Ukraine’s Lt. Col. Viktor Drzhuk, the course equipped him with the tools necessary to advance his career and benefit his country. “The course was very helpful for my personal and professional development. There was so much information to attain that I would have liked another week. Armed with the information I’ll bring back to my country, it will help further develop our own programs,” said Drzhuk. “Much of our MPTE systems are different, but the course gave me the opportunity to learn U.S. models and the other countries systems as well. I enjoyed working together with my classmates to solve classroom problems; globalization has given us that opportunity. Someday we could possibly work together.” For more information about NETSAFA, visit https://www. netsafa.navy.mil/.

Firehouse dedicates new extension for ladder truck From NASWF PAO
With a quick twist and uncoupling of a fire hose, Capt. Matthew Coughlin and Fire Chief Frank Barrow dedicated the new extension for the Navy Fire and Emergency Services Gulf Coast firehouse recently. The short observance also included a “Push In” ceremony for the ladder truck purchased last year for the department. “We were operating on a 17year-old truck and its life span was ending. We received the new truck last year in the hope of getting this extension,” said Assistant Fire Chief Steve Volturo. “Now, we can finally push in and house our new truck and better serve Naval Air Station Whiting Field and the surrounding communities.” The previous truck had been in use since 1994 and responded to thousands of emergency calls. The ladder truck had served a valuable purpose for the unit, but couldn’t compare
with the capabilities of more modern equipment that was available. The new apparatus provides an additional 25 feet of vertical length to reach the uppermost floors of any building at NAS Whiting Field. It also has an increased load rating for emergency rescues and can pump 770 gallons per minute more than the old Pierce Arrow vehicle. The enhanced capacities of the truck will enable a greater range of emergency response and improved fire fighting capabilities. However, with the greater length, the truck didn’t fit in any of the existing truck bays within the firehouse. The contract to build the extension was awarded shortly before the fire department was able to take delivery of the apparatus. The contract called for a portion of an existing truck bay to be extended by roughly 27 feet. Cost of the construction was approximately $160,000. Before opening the bay for
Naval Air Station Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin leads the push to back the ladder truck into the newly extended bay for the apparatus. The “Push In” ceremony relates back to the early history of fire engines when the machines were drawn by horses and after the horses were unhitched, the firefighters had to push the cart back into the bay.

the first time, Coughlin addressed the audience and thanked the participants for their hard work and dedication to the project.
“There is obviously a lot of teamwork involved whenever an event like this comes together,” Coughlin stated. “It is awesome to see it in action. I appre-
ciate everyone’s efforts in making today happen.” The event served as both a grand opening for the new bay, and as a chance to finally execute an old tradition with the receipt of a new truck. The “Push In” tradition dates back to the days of horse drawn fire fighting vehicles. Representing the seamless transition of readiness from one vehicle to the next, the tradition calls for the transfer of water from the old vehicle to the newer one, a wash-down of the wheels which would have prevented the old wooden wheels from cracking and pushing the vehicle into its bay. Much of the tradition had previously been executed, but the “Push In” couldn’t be completed until the bay was ready. So just like the old horse-drawn firefighting vehicles would have been pushed into the station once the horses were unhitched; all attending guests joined the fire fighters in pushing the truck into its new home.
Whiting Sailors wear new ranks after frocking ceremony From NASWF PAO
Naval Air Station (NAS) Whiting Field recognized the accomplishments of soon-to-beadvanced Sailors during a frocking ceremony held recently. Seventeen 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 rank before they are formally advanced. Second class petty officers were frocked to first class, third class petty officers will be frocked to second class and airmen will be frocked to third class. Each Sailor received a frocking letter from Capt. Matthew Coughlin, NAS Whiting Field commanding officer, which reads 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 from NAS Whiting Field selected for advancement including: ACAN James Scott, ACAN Austin Suppes, ACAN Erin Muir, ACAN Keesha Hunt, ACAN Vernon Dantzler, MASN Ian Wieserman, AT3 James Blake, AT3 Gabriel Poncevega, AT3 Kyle Richardson, AB3 Adam Oliver, AB3 Christopher Lipscomb, AB3 John Greenwood, AB3 Robert Parker, AB3 Jeffery Pierson, AB3 Christopher Bullock, AT2 Steve Gonzalez, RP2 Yolanda Jordan and AB2 Oscar Ruelas. “This day marks a lot of hard work and dedication, and I want to congratulate you all,” Coughlin stated. “This is always one of my favorite days, and the recognition is well deserved,” he said. “Great job.”

“Thanks to you, Dad.” From U.S. Census Bureau
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. How many fathers? • 70.1 million: Estimated number of fathers across the nation. • 24.7 million: Number of fathers who were part of married-couple families with children younger than 18 in 2011. Of these, 21 percent were raising three or more children younger than 18 (among married-couple family households only). About 3 percent lived in someone else’s home. • 1.7 million: Number of single fathers in 2011; 15 percent of single parents were men; 10 percent were raising three or more children younger than 18. About 45 percent were divorced, 31 percent were never married, 19 percent were separated and 5 percent were widowed. A total of 38 percent had an annual family income of $50,000 or more. Thinking of you, Dad • 7,708: The number of men’s clothing stores around the country (as of 2009) – a good place to buy dad a tie or shirt. • 15,734: The number of hardware stores (as of 2009) – a place to buy hammers, wrenches, screwdrivers and other items high on the list of Father’s Day gifts. Additionally, there were 6,897 home centers across the country in 2009. • 21,628: Number of sporting goods stores in 2009. 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. Stay-at-home dads • 176,000: Estimated number of stay-at-home dads in
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
“My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.” – Clarence B. Kelland 2011. 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 wives work outside the home. These fathers cared for upward of 332,000 children. • 17 percent: In spring 2010, the percentage of preschoolers regularly cared for by their father during
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.
Some Father’s Day inspiration and perspective “It doesn’t matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.” – Anne Sexton. “When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.” – Jewish proverb. “One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.” – George Herbert. “It is much easier to become a father than to be one.” – Kent Nerburn.
“Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad.” – Anne Geddes. “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.” – Mark Twain. “A father is a banker provided by nature.” – French proverb.

“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.
“My father taught me to work; he did not teach me to love it.”– Abraham Lincoln. “A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.” – Unknown.

Gosling Games Color Me ‘Surprise’
Jokes & Groaners Father’s Day zingers Father: “I hear you skipped school to play football.” Son: “No, I didn’t – and I have the fish to prove it.” Dad figured out why people call our language the “Mother Tongue.” Fathers never get a chance to use much of it. “Father’s Day always worries me,” one dad said to another. “I’m afraid I’ll get a gift I can’t afford.” The other replied, “You’re lucky. I always get aftershave. Last year I got raspberry. My daughter made it – out of corn oil and Kool Aid.” Father’s Day was near when I brought my three-yearold son, Tyler, to the card store. Inside, I showed him the cards for dads and told him to pick one. When I looked back, Tyler was picking up one card after another, opening them up and quickly shoving them back into slots, every which way. “Tyler, haven’t you found a nice card for Daddy yet?” “No,” he replied. “I’m looking for one with money in it.”
