ACE review yields positive results for CIWT
By Glenn Sircy Center for Information Warfare Training
The Center for Information Warfare Training announced the recommendations from the American Council on Education (ACE) course review of five courses related to the cryptologic technician (technical) (CTT) rating and the Cryptologic Warfare Officer Basic Course, as well as the CTT rating occupational review, June 1. The credit recommendations from ACE for the courses were adjusted from 32 to 30 in the lower-division baccalaureate/associate degree category and from zero to nine in the upper-division baccalaureate degree category. The CTT rating occupational review credit recommendations were adjusted from 117 to 129 in the lower-division baccalaureate/associ-
ate degree category and from 30 to 93 in the upper-division baccalaureate degree category. “Having ACE recommend college credits for CIWT courses and curriculum development is a direct reflection of the hard work and dedication of the entire CIWT team,” CIWT’s Executive Director Jim Hagy said. “Our team spends long hours refining each module of each course and this feedback also provides us a report card on where we can make process improvements within our curriculum and testing methodologies, ensuring the information provided to the fleet is accurate and current.” The ACE review was conducted to ensure Navy curriculum was current and provided a collaborative link between the See ACE on page 2

Seriously, do not even THINK of speeding onboard NASP Story, photo By Mike O’Connor Gosport Editor
MA3 Stephon Murray is not a spokesman for the NAS Pensacola (NASP) Security Department; just a patrolman on the street. But he does have a message for drivers onboard the naval air station. “We’ve been seeing an increase in the number of people speeding on base,” Murray said. “We are out here. We are paying attention to you; you need to slow down. We want to make sure people are driving safely, not speeding or operating their cell phones.” NASP Security does not want to write tickets – they want people to be safe.

Yet in the past three months (March to May), 155 tickets were issued, Murray said. There have been 34
SAPR program seeking military victim advocates From NASP Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC)
The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program is currently recruiting active-duty military members who desire to serve as victim advocates (VA) for the Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) SAPR team. The next VA class is July 9 to 13 from 7:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. in the NETC HRO Bldg. 680 Rm. 227. DoD requires all VAs to be certified through the Defense Sexual Assault Advocate Certification Program (DSAACP). Step one: The first step is for the VA candidate to be validated (background check) by their CO via the command SAPR POC. After the VA candidate is validated by the command and has a current clear-
ance of NAC or above, the SAPR POC informs one of the SARCS to receive a current VA application packet for the VA candidate(s). Step two: Personal interview with one of the SARCs at NASP, Jennifer Walker or Lillie Johnson. Candidate must bring a completed VA registration packet, including a completed See SAPR on page 2
Drinking water safe and clean at NASP By Kaitlyn Peacock Gosport Staff Writer
With the full heat of summer, it is important to stay hydrated to avoid heatstroke, dehydration and other health complications. When looking for a quick stop in the day, do not shy away from using public water services. Drink deeply; officials at Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) are proud to say the drinking water used on base is clean and safe. “The health and well-being of our personnel, their families and our surrounding communities is our primary importance,” NASP Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Patrick Nichols said. “(NASP) get our drinking water from deep source
aquifers at Corry Station ... the Corry Water Treatment Plant consists of 10 deep wells that supplies the Corry complex and NASP via pipes to water tanks,” Installation Environmental Program Director (IEPD) Mark Gibson said. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released a nationwide study linking the use of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam concentrates (AFFF) to water contaminated with perfluorocarbons (PFOA/PFOS), which can be harmful if ingested. This led to nationwide health advisories for drinking water systems. AFFFs were used at NAS Pensacola, NASP Saufley Field and Bronson See Water on page 2
traffic accidents in the same time period; two with injuries. And it is mostly base personnel being ticketed. There are two basic types of citations a driver might receive for vehicular infractions: the 1408 Armed Forces Citation – based on a point system – and the 1805 Magistrate Citation, which has a monetary penalty. The 1408 citation is strictly connected to the base, so it does not hurt your civilian driving privileges. It is awarded to those who are speeding less than 15 mph over the posted limit, and points will be assigned to your name in a police database. Depending on the type of offense, a 1408’s points will vary. Drivers onboard See Speeding on page 2

Changes coming to the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program From TRICARE
Do you have TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) coverage now? If so, then you need to know that the TRDP will end on Dec. 31. Not to worry – anyone who was in TRDP this year or would have been eligible for the plan, will be able to choose a dental plan from among 10 dental carriers in the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance ACE from page 1 U.S. Department of Defense and higher education through their evaluation process. Their review included an examination of each course curriculum as well as interviews with enlisted and senior enlisted CTTs. The review was conducted in accordance with the instruction for the continuous evaluation of Navy training courses, service occupation and professional experiences for civilian academic credit for inclusion on the Navy College Program and the Joint Services Transcript (JST). ACE recommends equivalent college credits for members of the armed forces for certain types of military training and service experiences, based on high quality standards of practice. They provide a collaborative link between the U.S. Department of Defense and higher education through their evaluation process. Each of the ratings taught at CIWT receives an ACE evaluation every 10 years at a minimum. “It’s very important for our Sailors’ education growth,” Denise Myers from CIWT’s training directorate said. “It encourages them to move forward in their academic career. The skills and training our Sailors receive will translate well to the outside world.” The Center for Information Warfare Training delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

It is written for those speeding 15 mph over the speed limit, and the dollar amount for that is at least $200 – plus a $30 processing fee. “We want people to be safe, and Water from page 1 Field for fire suppression and firefighter training but have since been disused due to the health concerns. Groundwater monitoring wells at Saufley Field have recently been tested and shown to be contaminated with PFOAs. However, no such chemicals were used at Corry Station. “Perfluorocarbons were tested at the Corry water treatment plant in 2016 at the request of EPA and there was no detection,” Cmdr. Ancelmo McCarthy, NASP Public Works Officer (PWO), reported. Groundwater monitoring wells are used to test potential threats to wildlife and drinking water supplies in an area. These wells are often at shallow depths to help in detecting threats sooner and nearer to the surface before they reach deep-water wells. Once a contamination is detected, steps can be taken to prevent further damage and to protect any other water sources in the area. Monitoring wells are used throughout the Navy. The process for drilling and maintaining these wells is consid-
that’s the main thing,” Murray said. “We want people to pay attention to the speeding signs that are posted. Pedestrians in crosswalks: People need to understand that (pedestrians) have the right of way; (drivers) need to understand that pedestrians must make it all the way across the street before vehicles can proceed.” So if you are new to the base, just a reminder – NASP’s Security Department takes public safety seriously. So
erably different from drinking water wells. Unlike monitoring wells, which can be seen as simply a pipe drilled into a groundwater reservoir, drinking wells are cleaned through a water treatment plant. “A pipe is drilled into the groundwater and the pipe has a cap which can be removed so the water in the pipe can be collected for sampling,” Gibson said about the process of drilling monitoring wells. “The wells are typically shallow, medium or deep, going to the depth needed to for the surface water seepage. Drinking water wells are much deeper than groundwater monitoring wells. The Navy installs groundwater monitoring wells as part of the Navy’s Environmental Restoration Program to collect small amounts of shallow groundwater to monitor remediation sites.” NASP’s annual water quality report for 2017 will be announced by the end of June.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer – Capt. Christopher T. Martin 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 one of the
Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 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, 314 North Spring St., Suite A, Pensacola, Fla. 32501, in the interest of military and ci-

Do the right thing – do not speed or operate a cell phone while driving. Keep an eye out for training class formations as they march or cross the base’s roads. Remember, NASP Security does not want to write tickets. If you make safety a No.1 priority, those numbers “1408” and “1805” should not come up.

Training focuses on women in leadership direction they are giving you.” The women on the panels were also asked about their work and life balance. “It’s important to recharge as much as possible,” Neaclesa Anderson, division counsel for Carderock, said. “You’re able to give your best self to the job when you take the time to recharge.” Easter said she had redefined work and life balance to just knowing what takes priority when and to making one decision at a time and then living with that decision. Similar to StefanyshynPiper’s comment about taking risks, George said she and the other members of the new professionals’ panel clearly took risks to get where they are. “It’s obvious that we took risks, and we made our own initiatives,” Charlotte George, program director for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and Outreach programs, said. “Not everybody gets that same empowerment from their supervisors. I think Carderock creates the environment to get what they want. The reason I came to Carderock versus private sector was because of the academic environment and that everybody here is smarter than I am and that’s what I want to be around.” During the closing remarks, attendees were challenged to take what they had learned back to their work areas. “It doesn’t stop here,” Stanley said. “It’s really up to each and every one of you to take this back and grow with it and make it bigger than this.”
By Kelley Stirling Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division held a Leadership in a Diverse Environment training event May 31 in West Bethesda, Md. The event, though mostly geared toward women either in or seeking leadership positions, was created to provide any employee with knowledge and tools to help understand how diversity in the workforce can help lead to success. “Research have shown that the top 50 companies are very successful because of their diversity, and they consistently outperform other companies,” Dr. Paul Shang, Carderock’s acting technical director, said during his welcoming remarks. Capt. Mark Vandroff, commanding officer, connected diversity and inclusion directly to the Naval Sea System Command’s (NAVSEA) vision to “Expand the Advantage,” and that the advantage in this case is people. “One of the things we work hard here at Carderock to do is to bring talent, and in order to get the most talent, we have to bring in a diverse group of people, because talent exists everywhere,” Vandroff said, adding that attendees should see the LDE training event as an investment in human capital. Carderock’s LDE training event, developed by Carderock Chief of Staff Kathy Stanley, brought together women leaders within the Department of the Navy to talk about their experiences. Guest speakers

Photo by Devin Pisner included Victoria Bowens, director for DoN Diversity and Inclusion Office; retired Navy Capt. Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper, former Carderock commander and astronaut; and Sarwat Chappell, program director for the Office of Naval Research’s Weapons, Power and Energy Office. Besides stories on how they got where they are, a common theme for all the speakers was how they balance work and life. “I think everyone agonizes over this,” Chappell said. “I gave myself permission to juggle my life and work, and it is OK sometimes to do that.” All of the speakers said they had taken advantage of opportunities throughout their career. Stefanyshyn-Piper said the opportunities can come with risk. “You have to take risks,
there are going to be risks,” Stefanyshyn-Piper said. “Don’t let your own self-doubt be the thing that holds you back.” Bowens described diversity not only in terms of gender or race, but also generations and culture. She said the only real difference between generations is technology, and other than that, there are just experiences. “The expectations of men and women have changed. The expectations of the workforce have changed,” Bowens said. “Be sensitive to the differences, be sensitive to these cultures.” Each of the panels was asked the same questions in order to get perspective from both senior and junior leaders in the workforce. One question that had similar answers from both was what was the most challenging thing about becoming
a leader. “Going from engineer to program management, I think the biggest challenge was I had to stop being a doer and transition to being a leader,” Steffanie Easter, director, Navy Staff and senior chief of naval operations. said. There were several pieces of advice from the panelists that they thought made improvements to their career, such as networking with peers and leaders, finding mentors, learning public speaking, being prepared in every assignment, taking advantage of collateral opportunities and stepping out of their comfort zone. “It’s tremendously important to seek out mentors,” Nancy Adler, branch head for the Performance Evaluation Branch, said. “I have peer mentors and senior mentors.

Team Navy competes in 2018 Warrior Games By MC1(SW/AW) Marcus L. Stanley
OLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (NNS) – Team Navy kicked off its participation in the annual Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games June 1 during the opening ceremony at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, marking a return to the inaugural home of the competition. Comprised of 40 athletes from Navy Wounded Warrior-Safe Harbor, Team Navy joins approximately 210 other service members and veterans from the Army, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Air Force and Special Operations Command. Athletes from the United Kingdom Armed Forces, Australian Defense Force and Canadian Armed Forces are also competing in the games. “It is truly humbling to be here cheering on the athletes of team Navy,” Vice Adm. Mary Jackson, commander, Navy Installations Command said. “The athletes competing at the Warrior Games are the epitome of toughness, tapping all sources of strength and resilience.” The Warrior Games were established in 2010 as a way to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded, ill and injured service members
and expose them to adaptive sports. During the event, which is scheduled to take place through June 9, athletes will test their abilities in 11 adaptive sports, including archery, cycling, shooting, sitting volleyball, swimming, track and field and wheelchair basketball. Additionally, for the first time in Warrior Games history, athletes will compete in indoor rowing, powerlifting and timetrial cycling. “Learning how to compete using adaptive equipment has reinforced that I am still capable of accomplishing great things and giving back to my country, my community and my Sailors,” NDC Julius McManus said. “The Warrior Games have re-kindled my desire for competition and have helped me to remember that I am more than my injuries.” MACS David Mills, who is

participating in the games for the first time, said being a part of the event has brought on a wave of emotions. “Participating in the Warrior Games is a very humbling experience for me,” Mills said. “I think about it a lot, and I get emotional at times. I am not only representing myself and 39 other people on Team Navy, I am representing the Navy as a whole, and those who served before.” Navy Wounded Warrior-
Safe Harbor is the Navy’s sole organization for coordinating the non-medical care of seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen and providing resources and support to their families. Through proactive leadership, the program provides individually tailored assistance designed to optimize the success of the wounded warriors’ recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration activities.

Always Ready: Hurricane season is upon us From Defense Media Activity
Thousands of service members could be affected by this year’s hurricane season. If you are in a hurricane prone area and you are not prepared, you should be. A hurricane is a tropical cyclone in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Northeast Pacific Ocean, east of the dateline or the South Pacific Ocean east of 160E. To fully prepare for an emergency, create one or more emergency kits, well in advance of a crisis, that include enough supplies for at least three days. If you live in a disaster-prone area (hurricanes, floods, earthquakes), consider extending capabilities to five days. Throughout the year, disaster kits should expand and evolve depending on your family’s needs, the season and the situation. The main items to have in your kit include water, food and first aid supplies. Be sure to include copies of important
personal documents such as birth and marriage certificates, titles, and bill, mortgage and insurance information. (These can be electronic copies on durable storage media such as a thumb drive which can be easily carried and updated.) You may also need to include additional supplies to meet the needs of any children, pets or special-needs family members. You may not be at home when disaster strikes, so make smaller emergency kits to keep at work and in your car. You also need a portable kit to take with you if you go to a shelter or evacuate. The emergency kits fact sheet (found at www.navy.mil/ah_online/documents/ disaster_kit.pdf) provides more tips and a list of items to include in your kits, as well as links to handy checklists you can download from the sites of national emergency planning and response agencies.
Types of emergency kits: • Portable Emergency Kit – Take this kit with you when you are ordered to evacuate. Make sure every member of your family knows where the kit is • Workplace Emergency Kit – This kit should be portable enough to be maintained at your workplace; you may have to evacuate from work or shelter up to 24 hours. Make sure you include comfortable walking shoes in case you have to walk long distances. This kit should include, at a minimum, food, water and a first-aid kit. Make sure you include your family’s communications plan • Vehicle Emergency Kit – In the event that you are stranded while driving, keep this kit in your vehicle at all times. This kit should contain at a minimum: food, water, flashlights and extra batteries, first aid kit and necessary medications, signal flares, repair tools,
portable AM/FM radio, comfortable/ sturdy shoes and blankets or sleeping bags. Also consider: cell phone and phone charger, reflective triangle, and baby formula and diapers if you have a small child. Make sure you include your family’s communications plan Maintaining your kits: • Make sure to constantly evaluate your kit and their relevance to the threats in your area • Throw away and replace any expired or damaged medications, food, or water For additional information: Department of Homeland Security (Ready. gov) and FEMA: • www. ready. gov/ build-a-kit • www. ready. gov/ maintainingyour- kit • www.ready.gov/kitstorage-locations • www. ready. gov/ sites/ default/files documents/files/checklist_1.pdf

The safeTALK and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) courses are programs dedicated to preventing death by suicide by educating Sailors in the detection and prevention of suicide. During the safeTALK
course, participants learn how to confidently identify signs that a person may be suicidal and how to utilize the resources available in order for them to connect that person with a trained professional. “The safeTALK class places participants in different scenarios and teaches them to recognize signs that someone may be suicidal, as well as getting them comfortable with asking directly about suicide,” Lt. Cmdr. David Kim, a command chaplain onboard USS
Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78), said. “We’re responsible for keeping our shipmates safe and for providing forceful backup. We need to look out for each other. You shouldn’t be worried about being nosey or asking hard questions. Asking questions is usually all it takes to get somebody the help they need.” ASIST offers a two-day interactive course where participants learn risk factors and warning signs for suicide and how to intervene and prevent
the immediate risk of death. “ASIST is designed to teach skills that enable an adult to competently and confidently intervene with a person at risk for suicide,” RPC Patricia Hernandez, assigned to Ford’s command religious ministries department, said. “It is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide, and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.” Sailors who attend the course view it as value-added to help support and keep their shipmates safe. Hernandez said, Sailors who attend this training, to include myself, reported learning to directly ask about suicide, as well as effective communication techniques, such as; active listening, building rapport and employing a non-judgmental approach to the topic of suicide. Both programs offer a T4T (Training for Trainers) course that teaches participants the skills taught in introductory courses, as well as how to train others in those very same techniques so that they, in turn, can go back to their commands and teach others. SafeTALK and ASIST workshops are open to all servicemembers. For more information and how to register, ask your command chaplain or call the CREDO Office.

NAS Whiting Field XO Cmdr. Don Gaines retires Story, photo by Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Office
aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) bid farewell to Cmdr. Don Gaines in a retirement ceremony last week following his tour as executive officer of NASWF. Gaines served as the executive officer beginning June 2015, culminating with his retirement and ending a threeyear tour with NASWF. He enlisted in the Navy in 1989, and reached the rank of hospital corpsman second class (HM2) until he was selected for the first Seaman to Admiral class program in 1994. He was commissioned after completion of Officer Candidate School in July, 1995. Upon completion of flight school and fleet replacement squadron training in 1998, he reported onboard Helicopter Combat Support Squadron 11 (HC-11) in San Diego, Calif. He earned a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of San Diego, and after a deployment, transitioned to Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron
21 (HSC-21). In May, 2006, Gaines reported to the pre-establishment unit for HSC-23 as the pre-commissioning unit executive officer. He then reported to PERS 40 in Millington, Tenn. In 2009, Gaines served as the branch head for enlisted aviation distribution (PERS 404). He then completed a tour at BUPERS 3 where he served as aviation enlisted community manager and the deputy enlisted community manager before reporting to NASWF as the executive officer. Gaines’ deloyments included USS Boxer (LHD 4), USS Camden (AOE2), second tour on USS Camden and the USNS Bridge (TAOE10). During his retirement speech, Gaines shared a story of how

he became an aviator. Prior enlisted as a hospital corpsman, he applied for a special opportunity to be part of the first class of the Navy’s Seaman to Admiral program. “Out of 1,400 qualified applicants they only took 50 Sailors. I was one of them,” Gaines said. “After my tour in HC-11, I went to the University of San Diego as a full lieutenant. The great thing was I had awesome study habits that I had learned in flight school, and I graduated summa cum laude. I knew Three generations in naval aviation ... Three gen-
erations of naval aviators who trained at NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) stand in front of a T-28 static aircraft prior to U.S. Marine Corps 1st Lt. Zach Griffitt’s (left) winging ceremony June 8.

.thatif I took this program, I was going to do at least 20 years, so why not enjoy those years? That was the driving reason to fly – I wanted to enjoy my job.” Reflecting back on his 29 years of naval service, the former XO shared a number of memorable moments, one such memory was when he hit the water in an H-46 helicopter during a search and rescue mission. He was junior pilot that day when the senior pilot experienced vertigo. Gaines pulled on the collective (the power) just in time to save the aircraft from hitting the water, to just “bounce” the water, avoiding what could have been a more dire situation. “I learned several lessons that day,” Gaines said. “One: Trust your crew, everyone has a vested interest in living. Two: There really is no rank in the cockpit. I was a junior pilot, and I assumed they were capable of spotting when they had vertigo and thought wrong. Finally, I learned to appreciate life every day.” The former XO gave credit to his wife Eling Gaines as the person who supported him throughout his entire na-
val career. “No way I could be here without her support,” Gaines said. “She has been my rock through it all. She was the person I could talk to all the time when I wasn’t sure what to do. She is awesome, I really don’t know what I would have done without her.” Gaines concluded his address to the crowd in the Lassen auditorium for the very last time with appreciation. “I want to especially thank the men and women of NAS Whiting Field,” he said. “The last three years have been wonderful. You all will hold a special place in my heart. You have been the best people I could have ever asked to work with and work for. You kept me always striving to be the best that I could be because you are the best out there. Every one of you are true professionals, and I wish you all nothing but the fairest of winds and following seas as we part ways. “But it is now time for me to step aside and let these young men and women lead the finest Navy in the world – thank you,” Gaines said.

Critical days of Summer From Naval Safety Center www.public.navy.mil
ith rapidly rising temperatures and the thoughts of beach, cookouts and travel ahead of us, the Naval Safety Center releases its Summer Safety presentation for 2018. Before you rush off for whatever fun-filled activities you have planned let us go over a few safety topics for the “Critical Days of Summer.” Summer 2017 fatalities In 2017, Between Memorial Day and Labor Day: • 12 Sailors and 14 Marines lost their lives • Impact: 26 trained and ready Sailors and Marines are no longer with us Summer 2017 overview of traffic and off-duty/recreation mishaps Total traffic and off-duty/ recreation fatalities: • Eight percent higher than previous five-year average (26 vs. 24.8) • 37 percent increase from previous year (26 vs. 19) Automobile fatalities: • Six percent higher than fiveyear average (seven vs. 6.6) • 12 percent decrease from previous year (seven vs. eight) Motorcycle fatalities: • 49 percent higher than fiveyear average (17 vs. 11.4) • 112 percent increase from previous year (17 vs. eight) Pedestrian fatalities: • 44 percent less than fiveyear average (one vs. 1.8) • No change from previous year (one vs. one) Off-Duty/Recreation Fatalities: • 81 percent less than fiveyear average (one vs 5.2) • 50 percent decrease from
previous year (one vs. two) Swim safety: • Always swim with a partner • Never allow young children to swim without adult supervision • Never swim when you are tired, under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medication • Know and observe your swimming limitations and capabilities • Avoid swift-moving water; if caught in a current, swim with it and angle towards shore or the edge of the current • Observe warning signs • Stay out of the water during thunderstorms and severe weather
nel of water flowing seaward from the shore. It can occur at any beach with breaking waves How to escape a rip current: 1. Relax. Do not swim back to shore directly against a rip. You risk exhaustion and drowning 2. Calmly float or tread water to conserve energy. Swim parallel to shore until outside of the rip or in a diagonal direction towards the shore 3. Swim where lifeguards are present
Diving safety: • Never dive into shallow water. Always inspect the depth of the water to make sure it is deep enough for diving. If diving from a high point, make sure the bottom of the body of water is DOUBLE the distance from which you are diving. For example, when diving from eight feet above water, make sure the bottom of body of water is AT LEAST 16 feet under water • Develop a plan for reaching medical personnel who can treat swimming-related injuries. Anyone watching swimmers near the water should learn CPR and be able to rescue them Rip currents: • A rip current: A strong chan-
Boating safety: Operating a boat requires concentrated skill and a keen sense of awareness in the boat and on water. A clear head and a responsible outlook are necessary to make a day on the water as smooth and as safe as possible. 1. Do not overload – check the boat manufacturer’s capacity plate 2. Know your boat – what it can and cannot do 3. Keep a good lookout and situational awareness of other boats and objects 4. Ensure crew and passengers wear a USCG approved personal flotation device 5. Operate at safe and legal speeds – watch your wake 6. Know and respect the

summer 2018 weather – heed weather warnings Boating Under the Influence (BUI): Alcohol affects judgement, balance and coordination. These impairments increase the likelihood of accidents afloat for both passengers and boat operators. U.S. Coast Guard data shows that in boating deaths involving alcohol use, more than half the victims capsized their boats and/ or fell overboard. Alcohol is even more hazardous on the water than on land. The marine environment, vibration, engine noise, sun, wind and spray accelerates a drinker’s impairment. These stressors cause fatigue that makes a boat operator’s coordination, judgment and reaction time decline even faster when using alcohol. Alcohol can also be more dangerous to boaters because boat operators are often less experienced and less confident on the water than on the highway. Recreational boaters do not have the benefit of experiencing daily boat operation. In fact, boaters average only 110 hours on the water per year. Alcohol has many physical
effects that directly threaten safety and well-being on the water. Safe barbecuing: • Keep your grill outside. Keep away from house, trees and deck railings • Read the owner’s manual. Make sure your grill is assembled properly and stable • Protect yourself. Grill gloves, utensils with long handles and avoid loose fitting clothing • Clean thoroughly. Keep a fire extinguisher handy • Man the fire. Never leave unattended when flames are present or hot • Start a gas grill with the lid open. Lighting while closed can cause a dangerous buildup of gas • Be responsible with lighter fluid. Only use to start a charcoal grill • Check the gas lines. Conduct a gas leak test at the beginning of every season. Inspect propane tanks • Use the right cords. Only use an outdoor extension cord that is properly grounded • Shut down your grill correctly. Turn off burners and fuel supply
Thoughts to ponder
Color Me: ‘Summer treats’
1. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire. 2. Always remember you’re unique. Just like everyone else. 3. If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments. 4. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes. 5. If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you. 6. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it. 7. If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything. 8. Some days you are the bug, some days you are the windshield. 9. Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment. 10. A closed mouth gathers no foot. 11. Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together. 12. Generally speaking, you aren’t learning much when your lips are moving.

CIWT welcomes Port St. Joe High School NJROTC Story, photos by MC2 Taylor Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training
he Center for Information Warfare Training hosted 24 Naval Junior ROTC (NJROTC) cadets, May 17 to 18. The cadets from Port St. Joe High School in Port St. Joe, Fla. and their naval science instructor retired Navy Cmdr. Anthony Almon visited CIWT’s largest schoolhouse, Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station, to learn how the Navy prepares its Sailors to fight and win across the information warfare spectrum. CTRCM Thaddeus Morris, a graduate of Port St. Joe High School, who was also a
NJROTC program cadet, led the tour. “It’s a great honor to be able to be a part of the program as much as I can,” Morris said. “Being able to bring them here and let them see that there is something outside of our small town is very important. I’m hopeful that some of them will see that the military is a great opportunity for them, and they’ll be able to do great things.”
CTRCM Thaddeus Morris, a native of Port St. Joe, Fla., provides a tour of the Center for Information Warfare Training to Navy Junior ROTC cadets from Port St. Joe High School. Morris, also a graduate of Port St. Joe High School, guided the students on their tour of the Pensacola area.
