U.S. Rep. McIntyre visits NASP Story, photo by Katelyn Barton NASP PAO Intern

U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre, D-N.C., a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, said he came away with a good impression of Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) after taking a tour of the base June 13. “I always heard good things about Pensacola,” McIntyre said, “but to see it in person, the proverbial phrase that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words,’ well – the visit is worth hundreds of thousands of words, because you can see the dedication in the eyes of students.” McIntyre, who has represented North Carolina’s 7th District since 1996, serves as the third-highest ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee and is the top ranking member on the subcommittee on Seapower and Projection Forces. McIntyre is also the co-chairman and co-founder of the Special Operations Forces Caucus on Capitol Hill. McIntyre started the day off with a briefing led by NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins at command headquarters. His tour included

stops at Training Air Wing Six, the Blue Angels hangar, the National Naval Aviation Museum and Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) onboard NASP. McIntyre was able to examine several different aircraft on display outside the Blue Angels facility and at the National Naval Aviation Museum as well. McIntyre joined a group of students for lunch at the JetPort Café at the NATTC galley, and Hoskins stopped in to present a personal command coin to the congressman. During his visit to the NATTC, McIntyre spoke with students. On behalf of the U.S. Congress and the armed service committee in particular, he expressed his thanks for the dedication and commitment of the men and women who serve in the military. McIntyre also emphasized his support for NASP students for the sacrifices they made for their families, an act usually unseen by the public eye. McIntyre helped pass the Defense Authorization Bill before Memorial Day, to make sure the military was provided pay, uniforms and the equipment necessary to be able to perform their missions.

NMOTC, NAMI, NSTI Sailors celebrate Hospital Corps’ birthday From NMOTC Public Affairs

Nearly 100 service members, civilian employees and contracted workers from the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery’s (BuMed) premier training facility for operational medicine and aviation survival training celebrated the 116th birthday of one of the U.S. Navy’s most decorated corps June 17. Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC), the command responsible for the operational medicine and aviation survival training for U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard personnel, hosted the cake-cutting ceremony and presentation on the largest of the U.S. Navy Corps, something Naval Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) Cmdr. Henry Casey said is imperative for current and former hospital corpsmen to remember and appreciate. “The hospital corpsman birthday is significant because as the only enlisted corps in the Navy – that in and of itself is a huge honor – is a legacy and a heritage we should take a moment and celebrate. (Members) of the Hospital Corps are recipients of Medals of Honor and all the other medals of heroism – bar none – in history, so it’s important to take a moment and honor that with our birthday celebration.”

Casey, who initially enlisted as a hospital corpsman before completing basic underwater demolition and subsequent assignment as a U.S. Navy SEAL, said the rich history of the hospital corpsman rating, along with the men and women who have taken the hospital corpsman oath for more than a century have had a profound impact on service members around the world. “The importance of the Hospital Corps to the U.S. Navy is that it enables the Navy to fight the fight and to have highly trained medical personnel not just at the forefront but in the fight,” he said. “Hospital corpsmen extend the physicians, nurses and other provider’s abilities into the fight. Corpsmen enable the Navy to put medical professionals on every platform we have so that there’s medical coverage for every warfighter in the Navy.” HM Juan Gonzalez, NMOTC’s most junior hospital corpsman, and HMCM Bobby Pilgrim, the senior-most hospital corpsman in the NMOTC enterprise, cut a cake during the brief ceremony. Hospital corpsmen work in a wide variety of capacities and locations, including shore establishments such as naval hospitals and clinics, aboard ships, and are the primary medical caregivers for Sailors while un-

derway. Hospital corpsmen are frequently the only medical caregiver available in many fleet or Marine units on extended deployment. In addition, hospital corpsmen perform duties as assistants in the prevention and treatment of disease and injury and assist health care professionals in providing medical care to Sailors and their families.

They may function as clinical or specialty technicians, medical administrative personnel and health care providers at medical treatment facilities. They also serve as battlefield corpsmen with the Marine Corps, rendering emergency medical treatment to include initial treatment in a combat environment. Qualified hospital corpsmen may be assigned

the responsibility of independent duty aboard ships and submarines; Fleet Marine Force, SEAL and Seabee units, and at isolated duty stations where no medical officer is available. The colloquial form of address for a hospital corpsman is “Doc.” In the Marine Corps, this term is generally used as a sign of respect. NMOTC, the recognized global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training, reports to Navy Medicine Education and Training Command (NMETC). NMETC manages Navy Medicine’s formal enlisted and officer education and training programs, medical operational training for medical and medical support personnel deploying worldwide, and training that prepares aviators and flight crews to survive in land and water mishaps. NMOTC and NMETC are part of the Navy Medicine team, a global health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide high-quality health care to more than one million eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ships, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

Important information about your drinking water: Monitoring requirements not met for NASP/Corry Station water system From NASP PWD

We are required to test your drinking water for the presence of total coliform bacteria on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. We normally collect one raw (untreated) water sample from each well supplying the system each month. Due to an oversight, Well 9 on Corry Station, one of 10 active wells supplying the system, was not sampled in the month of May 2014. With this, we did not complete all required monitoring of our wells for total coliform bacteria for the month, and we could not be sure of the quality of the drinking water produced by Well 9 during this time. Please note that a sample taken from Well 9 on June 3, 2014 (immediately after this monitoring oversight was discovered) was absent for

total coliform bacteria, as were all distribution samples taken throughout the system in May 2014; that is, total coliform bacteria were not detected in any water produced or supplied by the system during that time. What should I do? There is nothing you need to do at this time: • You do not need to boil your water or take other precautionary actions. • You do not need to use an alternate (e.g., bottled) water supply. What does this mean? This was an administrative oversight. This is not an emergency. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. We did not find any total coliform bacteria in our routine distribution system testing for the month of May. (Total coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment

Time to grab a shovel to get annual dose of dirt By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I

have dirt under my fingernails. There is a blister the size of Delaware on my thumb. My face is sunburned in a distinctive raccoon pattern around my sunglasses. I’m walking with a slight limp, thanks to the pain in my knee from too much squatting. This happens to me every spring. As the bees begin to buzz, I get the bug to plant things in my garden. The grocery stores display flats of pansies outside the entrances and the hardware stores offer specials on grass seed, and I find myself heaping my cart with annuals, perennials, shrubs, vegetables and herbs. When we moved into base housing at Naval Station Newport, R.I, last July, it was too late to plant. So this spring, as soon as winter gave up its death grip on the soil, I was ready. I dropped a pretty penny at the local garden center, and informed my husband that we had to dig out the overgrown shrubs running along the driveway of our base house.

How to submit a commentary

We found our shovels that had not been unpacked since our last move, and went to work. We thought we would leaver the root ball of each shrub out with a few scoops of the shovel, but of course, the overgrown plants would not budge. One inch under the topsoil was a complex tangle of woody roots and random rocky deposits, the removal of which could have warranted the use of combat grade explosives. For an hour, we chopped, hacked, tugged and pulled, but still had not uprooted the first shrub, despite spewing every expletive in the book. We guzzled water between breathless attempts, as sweat soaked through our shirts. My husband began grunting and

She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. groaning with every heave of the shovel, like a middle-aged male version of Monica Seles. Finally, the last stubborn root broke free, and we tri-

umphantly hurled the severed bush away. One down, only five more to go. Needless to say, the next day after we removed all six shrubs and two diseased rhododendrons, my husband and I could barely walk. It took me a week to recover enough energy to plant the new perennials I had purchased at the garden center, and my knee still feels like it is going to buckle like some kind of hyperextended Barbie Doll leg. This week, I finally managed to get everything in the ground, the pots and the window boxes, and although it does not exactly look like the recreation of Disney World’s Epcot Center that I had imagined, I have satisfied my annual spring gardening fix. Thankfully, my horticultural urgings are more about the process than the end result. Every spring, I crave the catharsis of digging in the dirt, and long to revive my hibernating muscles with the rigors of yard work. I can smell the aroma of freshly mulched borders, see

the hues of artistically arranged beds, and taste the refreshment of a cold beer after a long day outdoors. I envision myself, in a flowered sundress and straw hat, walking through my abundant garden barefoot on a hot midsummer day, placing my own freshly cut flowers, aromatic herbs, and plump vegetables into a basket. Come summer, it never quite turns out the way I had hoped, and I usually find myself totally dumbfounded when my tomatoes suffer from bottom rot and my azaleas have blight. My thumb might be blistered, but unfortunately, it isn’t green. But let’s face it, I can buy whatever I want at a grocery store. And besides, when it comes to the fulfillment of gardening, I have been paid back in spades.

Software to improve naval aviation safety reaches key development stage

A

By Paula A. Paige Naval Air Systems Command PAO

software tool that will help the Navy and Marine Corps reduce its aviation mishap rate and enhance aircrew training reached a key developmental milestone recently, laying the groundwork for limited production and installation on fleet computers. NAVAL AIR STATION PATUXENT RIVER, Md. (NNS) — Navy officials hailed Milestone C achievement of the Military Flight Operations Quality Assurance, or MFOQA (pronounced em-FO-kwa), software and said plans are under way to deploy the application to about three F/A-18 squadrons per month, with phase 2 of the program providing capability to Navy and Marine Corps helicopter squadrons beginning in 2016. “MFOQA will provide detailed data in a format that is user-friendly for post-flight analysis for naval aviators, maintenance personnel and squadron leadership,” said Capt. Tracy Barkhimer who leads the Air Combat Electronics Program Office (PMA-209), which is managing the software development. “It will alert fleet leadership to aircrew behaviors

that, in the aggregate, could lead to unsafe situations of which they may not be aware.” Initial Operational Capability was planned for late spring at Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 106, an F/A-18 Hornet and F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fleet replacement squadron at Naval Air Station Oceana, Va. MFOQA can identify unsafe trends in aircrew technique and enable fleet leadership to initiate remedial training to correct the problem before it results in a mishap, Navy officials said. For example, an instructor conducting a basic fighter maneuvers training flight on a non-Tactical Air Combat Training System mission must recreate all the details of the engagements from memory and notes taken during the flight. MFOQA provides a visual replay of the flight with extensive detail of the flight parame-

ters, which significantly enhances the training experience. The tool also allows for a postflight analysis of flight data, which will facilitate improved maintenance and operational procedures. FOQA, the civilian aviation version of the software has already proven usefulness in the commercial airline industry, said Susan Whitley, MFOQA’s integrated product team lead, responsible for the program’s overall design, development and execution. “The intent is to identify predictive indicators and trends by analyzing existing flight data on

a regular basis, not just after the mishap or incident,” Whitley said. “MFOQA provides timely, tangible information on aircrew and aircraft system performance following every flight and puts that information into the hands of the people who can most directly make a difference — squadron aircrew, maintainers and leadership. We want to 'break the link' before an aircraft mishap or maintenance failure occurs.” MFOQA will support the following platforms: F/A18C/D/E/F, EA-18G, MH-60R/S, CH-53E, MH-53E, CH-53K, AH-1Z, UH-1Y, T-

45C, MV-22B, F-35B/C, P-8A, E-6B, KC-130J, E-2C/D and C2A. The MFOQA program was launched in 2005 as a result of a secretary of defense memorandum, directing the services to “implement the multifaceted MFOQA process.” PMA-209 provides the Navy and Marine Corps with products and support in the areas of communication and airborne networking, navigation and flight operations and mission systems and sensors.

Navy uses 3D modeling, laser scanning to develop vehicles for Marines By Dan Broadstreet Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division

PANAMA CITY (NNS) — Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) Cougar 3D Project representatives showcased a 3D model of the Mine Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) Cougar recently to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Program Executive Office. NSWC PCD stood up an Expeditionary 3D Modeling and Laser Scanning Center in early 2014 to support warfare systems required by joint forces and the Department of the Navy for expeditionary maneuver warfare. “The Cougar 3D Modeling Project uses the latest in metrology technology to develop baseline 3D parametric models. In this case, we used it to develop government-owned and controlled models of the USMC MRAP Cougar Family of Vehicles (FoVs),” said 3D Project Engineer Randy Whitehead.

According to Whitehead, the controlled 3D model baseline configuration of each Cougar variant reduces the time required to incorporate engineering changes and aids to verify interfaces with Integrated Logistics Support replacement parts. These added capabilities will result in a reduction in total ownership cost for the Cougar's life cycle. “The 3D modeling and laser scanning capability allows us to produce a high precision technical data package (TDP),” said Whitehead. According to Ingraham, the modeled variants include the MRAP Cougar CAT II A2, CAT II A1, CAT 1 A1 vehicles and ambulance kit. “This technology will empower the Navy and Marine Corps to maintain an optimized configuration of the entire MRAP Cougar FoV,” said Land Systems MRAP FoV Lead Systems Engineer Brent Ingraham. Ingraham said the American warfighters’ initial need for the armored platform was so critical, its development and delivery to the American warfighter was justified as an urgent need and ex-

pedited by the Department of Defense. “That is why we’re now refining its TDP with the 3D modeling and laser scanning technology,” said Whitehead. “This technology enables us to identify any discrepancies that existed in the earlier variants of the MRAP Cougars, correct them for the whole family of vehicles and deliver an optimized baseline configuration to warfighters,” he continued. According to Whitehead and Ingraham, the level of precision gained in using the Expeditionary 3D Modeling and Laser Scanning Center will dramatically impact reliability, maintainability and sustainability for the Marine Corps’ MRAP Cougar FoV and do so consistently regardless of what engineering changes or modernizations are made. “It will optimize mission capability and save lives by facilitating upgrades and engineering changes,” said Ingraham.

NATTC’s AOCM Winkelman retires after 30 years Story, photo by Lt. Jonathan Bacon NATTC Public Affairs

AOCM Mark Winkelman, originally from St. Cloud, Minn., an instructor at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) in Pensacola, retired after 30 years of service in a June 6 ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). Winkelman started his Navy career in August 1984 at Recruit Training Command, San Diego, Calif. Following boot camp, he received his basic in-rate aviation ordnance training at NATTC when it was located at the former NAS Millington, Tenn. Throughout his 30 years, Winkelman served at sea in the carrier aviation community with the “Ravens” of Attack Squadron 93 (VA-93), the “Chargers” of Attack Squadron 27 (VA-27), and twice with the “Mighty Shrikes” of Strike Fighter Squadron 94 (VFA-94). Ashore, he served twice in the station

weapons department of NAS Lemoore, and well as with the F/A-18E/F Fleet Introduction Team. For his final tour, Master Chief Winkelman returned to NATTC, located aboard NAS Pensacola, to cap off a successful career as NATTC’s Mechanical Training Department leading chief petty officer. During opening remarks, the ceremony’s presiding officer, Capt. Alan Dean, NATTC’s commanding officer and one of the most senior ranking aviation ordnance

limited duty officers in the Navy, praised Winkelman’s 30 years of “honorable, faithful, dedicated service to his country,” as well as the sacrifices his family made to make it possible. Dean remarked that during his career, Winkelman’s “helped shape and mold the Navy of today, and that the Navy has shaped and molded him as well.” Though he is saddened to see a leader like Winkelman retire, Dean pointed out to the assembled family, friends and shipmates that throughout his career and time at NATTC, Winkelman “helped train countless aviation ordnancemen to take his place, and that many will go on to serve as well as you and I did in the past.” AFCM Raoul Garcia, the guest speaker, and Winkelman’s relief at NATTC, summarized the major themes of Winkleman’s service that he was “grounded and unpretentious, never a man to focus upon himself, but instead he would talk about his mentors.” Garcia characterized Winkelman as the epitome of a master chief. “A master chief petty officer is always the one

relied upon to solve problems and get us through them. A master chief will always speak the truth, no matter how inconvenient, and Master Chief Winkleman is this type of man.” True to the points presented by Garcia, Winkelman’s remarks were humble and about those who had supported him along the way. He thanked the many people he had served with and his family for their assistance and support. “NATTC is a big command, and never slows down. Training, physical training, discipline; there is always something going on, and yet the staff here does it all with ease. Thank you to my fellow master chiefs, and the NATTC Chief’s Mess, I have been blessed to be a part of this organization and I thank you for your guidance and support.” Following his brief remarks, Winkelman and his family departed between the sideboys and were “piped ashore” in accordance with naval tradition signifying the transition from this period in their lives in the Navy, to a new one in retirement.

Navy Advancement Center staffer Larkin announced as NETPDTC civilian of the quarter By Ed Barker NETC Public Affairs

The Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC) announced May 15 their selection of James Larkin as civilian of the quarter (COQ) for the second quarter of 2013. Larkin works for the Navy Advancement Center (NAC) in the Examination Ordering and Discrepancy Branch as a program assistant. He designs, develops and implements process changes to continuously update and improve exam administration procedures for the Navy Enlisted Advancement System (NEAS), directly impacting more than 280,000 Sailors annually.

“I really enjoy having the opportunity to help enlisted Sailors on advancement issues Larkin and concerns daily,” Larkin said. “Also, being recognized for my efforts and contributions to cutting costs for the command and our country is truly rewarding.” Larkin transitioned to NETPDTC in 2010 after retiring as a Navy senior chief petty officer and will graduate with a master’s in business administration in August. He has worked on a number of projects that support critical Navy personnel pro-

grams, including recently identifying and tracking advancement exam shipping errors resulting from a postal policy change that impacted embarked staff and aviation units. His solution led to a process that leveraged eight new mail centers around the world, and ensured the timely delivery of advancement exams. “I immediately identified and tracked exam return shipments which had the potential to negatively impact advancements at 205 commands,” Larkin said. “We initiated a meeting with the east and west coast fleet mail service directors and other key stakeholders to review procedures used to ship exams.” As a result of Larkin’s efforts, an exam-specific mail procedure

for enlisted exam shipments is now in place. Larkin’s supervisor, NAC’s Exam Ordering and Discrepancy Branch head, Haywood West said, “Mr. Larkin’s work ethic and organizational management skills were key to shipping and receiving process improvements by removing barriers and enabling Sailors to participate in the examination process without delay.” According to Thomas Updike, Navy Enlisted Advancement Executive Division head, Larkin’s process redesign interventions have improved the efficiency of the exam ordering and shipping procedures as well as reduced printing and shipping costs. “His corrective measures have reduced exam returns by 90 per-

cent and cut package error rates by 50 percent, significantly increasing exam processing time for enlisted Sailors,” Updike said. “Mr. Larkin understands that Sailors and their families depend on him to execute the Navy’s advancement system in a fair and equitable manner. This recognition shows how one person can make a big difference.” Capt. Janet Lomax, NETPDTC’s commanding officer praised Larkin’s performance during the award presentation. “How do you describe Mr. Larkin and his position in the Navy Advancement Center,” Lomax asked. “He’s a true problem solver; an everyday hero who is well deserving of this recognition.”

Annual Feds Feed Families food drive begins By Ens. Joshua Lamb NASWF PAO

Summer months are a rarely thought of as the time to donate food to the less fortunate. The Department of Defense’s fourth Feds Feed Families campaign at Naval Air Station Whiting Field and Training Air Wing Five (TraWing-5) – the 2014 campaign – has begun and will conclude at the end of August to support the efforts of Bay Area Food Bank. Feds Feed Families is an annual campaign led by the United States Department of Agriculture and supported by other federal agencies. Since this program began in 2009, federal workers have collectively donated and collected more than 24.1 million pounds of food and other nonperishable items to support families across America. Last year, this food drive collected nearly 9 million pounds of food and the goal for this year is to not just surpass the 9 million pound mark, but for every agency participating to set goals and beat their previous best do-

nation amounts. The last three years, NASWF and TraWing-5 collected 1,739 pounds equaling 1,335 meals in 2011; 2,148 pounds equaling 1,652 meals in 2012; and 3,238 pounds equaling 2,490 meals. “Last year was a great year, but I think the base can get more involved. My goal is to exceed 5,000 pounds this year.” NASWF Chaplain Lt. Jason Hart stated. This food drive is spearheaded by the chaplain’s office, and this year they will continue to partner with commissary director Kim Jackson by offering $5 bags of groceries to donate to the cause. “Kim’s idea was great to add the $5 food bag. We have a great working relationship with the commissary, and they do a ton of work to help keep the Bay Area Food Bank stocked during a critical time of the year,” Hart stated. These bags will be collected by the commissary team and can be purchased at check out with the cashiers. Participants who purchase donation bags will be entered into a drawing for some great prizes every other week.

Additionally, pick-ups will take place every other week starting June 11 and they will continue through Aug. 20. RP2 Lusbeth Morales is assisting Hart in promoting this food drive and stated: “This is my first year finding out about

the program because I have spent my time overseas, but I think it’s a fantastic program to have and I am grateful to be able to help support it.” Navy Region Southeast led the Navy, which led the DoD, for the past several years. Through

donations, this record of success continues, but most importantly, the desire is to assist people and families in the local community during difficult times. If you wish to assist in the Feds Feed Family program, call 623-7212.

Hurricane readiness fair to help families prepare By Jay Cope NASWF PAO

Peak hurricane season is a couple of months away, but the time to prepare for a possible hurricane is now. The Pacific basin has already had a couple of named storms, and while June is usually a slow month for tropical storms, the Gulf of Mexico is one of the most likely locations for such an early season storm to initiate. To help families prepare for the possibility of a hurricane or tropical storm striking the local area, Naval Air Station Whiting Field is presenting its annual Hurricane Fair today, June 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the atrium. The event is used to bring a wealth of information together in one location to provide information, tips, and advice on how to prepare your family and your home for severe weather. Nearly 20 different organizations are scheduled to attend the event including: Gulf Power, Red Cross, Santa Rosa County Health Department, Safer Santa

Rosa County (part of Santa Rosa County Emergency Management), Santa Rosa Medical Center, Community Emergency Response Team, Lifeguard Ambulance, Northwest Florida Area Agency on Aging Inc., National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NEX, Commissary, CDC, Fleet and Family Support Center and more. Pat Dillenback, from the NAS Whiting Field FFSC, is coordinating this year’s event, and she emphasizes that it isn’t just the military service members who could benefit from attending. “I think it is important that families attend the fair,” she stated. “There is a wealth of vital information these organizations put out that can help meet a variety of needs.” Two such examples she cites are the Northwest Florida Area Agency on Aging, which promotes information on caring for the elderly during a storm, and the Gulf Breeze Animal Hospital, which issues a checklist on preparing your pet’s emergency kit. Other items that attendees

can expect will be emergency service vehicles, a Gulf Power electrical safety demonstration and a Santa Rosa Medical Center triage tent display. Much of the information presented will focus on preparing for the possibility of a storm, but recovery is equally important and several of the organizations will focus on services and programs available for people who are affected by severe weather. “Our primary goal is to ensure service members and their families are able to stay safe,” Dillenback said. “I am really excited to be able to bring information to our base population that might not have been exposed to it otherwise.” Information dissemination is also the reason these organizations are attending the fair. The event gives them the opportunity to meet with a large number of people in a short period of time and to stress the value of their programs in helping to keep people in the community safe. One such example is the Community Emergency Response Team, which will

provide information on what happens during and after weather disasters; such as search and rescue; damage assessment; triage; follow-up assistance to residents in the form of helping remove trees, helping place blue tarps and distributing food; as well as manning points of distribution setup by Santa Rosa County. Members of the group will also show how they use ham radios and FRS radios to communicate between their teams and the County Emergency Operations Center and the Volunteer Reception Center. “We take every opportunity presented to make the public cognizant of disaster preparedness,” stated Lou Greene a Community Emergency Response Team representative, who also emphasized the valuable networking that can be accomplished during such events. “Any information we gain as a result of our co-mingling with other entities at (the NAS Whiting Field Disaster Preparedness Fair is helpful). There is always room to learn and gain knowledge from others.”

duty, retired or the spouse of active duty or retire military. Child Support In calculating Child Support, in addition to your regular or retirement pay, the following pay is included: 1. Housing Allowance 2. Sea or Flight Pay 3. Retirement Pay 4. Social Security 5. V.A. Benefits (Yes, despite what others have told you, VA pay is included in child support calculations. Some of you will argue this point. Make an appointment and I will show you why it is included). You will still be governed by the child support requirements under the general Divorce/Child Support for the state of Florida. FYI: Based on the child support formula, it is almost always cheaper, if possible, to use day care.

A major problem which can affect both the payor and recipient of child support is when the support should begin. If you are involved in the initial Divorce proceeding the payor’s obligation begins, at the minimum, when the divorce is filed and/or you no longer live together with the child/children. The separation date may predate the filing of the divorce petition. You need an attorney’s advice to ascertain your obligation. If you wait until the final hearing, you may have to pay ongoing child support plus a court ordered amount each month to satisfy an arrearage plus interest. If you are active duty military, the JAG manual (navy page) will specify what you must pay to continue to support your family until further court order. A temporary hearing could reduce the amount of child support that you have been direct to may pay military orders or rules. If you are the spouse of an active duty military member, reservist or retiree, see Spouse/Military

or call for an appointment regarding the questions you may have. Retirement Alimony/Spousal Support In Florida, military retirement funds are an asset which is treated differently than other income related to Alimony/Spousal Support. The spouse of retired military personnel receives a pro rata share of the retirement funds. If the spouse remarries, the awarded share is still paid. If the military retiree dies, and an SBP is elected, it is still paid. You must make sure your lawyer uses the correct formula in order to establish the amount owed. DFAS has particular guidelines that must be met in order to accomplish the correct payment of spousal support.

W

ith boating under the influence (BUI) continuing to be a major factor in accidents and deaths on the nation’s waterways, thousands of officers with local, state and federal agencies will again team up for Operation Dry Water (ODW) in a coordinated effort to be on the water providing heightened enforcement and awareness about the dangers of boating under the influence (BUI) of drugs or alcohol. Operation Dry Water 2014 is June 27-29, just before the Fourth of July, a holiday known for drinking and boating, and deadly accidents. Operation Dry Water is a nationwide education and enforcement initiative launched by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard. Officers from all 56 U.S. states, trusts and territories are expected to participate in Operation Dry Water 2014. Since the launch of Operation Dry Water in 2009, the percentage of boating fatalities with alcohol listed as a contributing

factor has decreased from 19 percent to 17 percent in the United States. Despite the decrease, BUI still accounts for a disproportional number of onthe-water deaths. In 2011, alcohol was a contributing factor in just 8 percent of boating accidents overall, but figured in 17 percent of boating fatalities. In 2013, 513 local, state and federal agencies participated in Operation Dry Water. During that three-day weekend law enforcement officers contacted 144,044 boaters, made 290 BUI arrests and issued 17,159 citations and warnings for safety violations. More than 6,200 officers participated in the 72

hours of heightened BUI enforcement. Also in 2013, NASBLA’s Operation Dry Water received the national Horizon Award from the National Safe Boating Council, for the campaign’s dedication to moving the cause of recreational boating safety to a new level. The campaign was also recognized for its encouragement to boaters to take a pledge to make wise decisions about alcohol use, and to never drink while boating. “Operation Dry Water has proven to be a successful campaign,” Toby Velasquez, NASBLA president, said. “I encourage every local, state and

federal agency tasked with boating law enforcement to participate in this worthwhile BUI enforcement and awareness effort.” About BUI: • U.S. Coast Guard 2012 data reveal that alcohol use is the primary contributing factor recreational boater deaths. • Operating a boat with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher is against federal law and most state laws. • Alcohol can impair a boater’s judgment, balance, vision and reaction time. It can also increase fatigue and susceptibility to the effects of coldwater immersion. • Sun, wind, noise, vibration and motion – “stressors” common to the boating environment – intensify the side effects of alcohol, drugs and some medications. • Impairment can be even more dangerous for boaters than for drivers, since most boaters have less experience and confidence operating a boat than they do driving a car. • Persons found to be boating under the influence can expect to incur severe penalties. If a boat operator is BUI, the voyage may be terminated, the boat may be impounded and the operator may be arrested. Penalties vary by state but can include fines, jail, loss of boating privileges, even loss of driving privileges. • A three-year field evaluation by the Southern California Re-

Gosling Games Color Me ‘Sail away’

search Institute completed in 2011 validated a battery of tests for marine use that are now the basis for efforts to implement a National Marine Field Sobriety Test standard. • Combined with chemical tests using blood, breath, and urine samples, these validated ashore and afloat tests give marine law enforcement officers an impressive arsenal in their ongoing efforts to enforce BUI laws. • Alcohol is also dangerous for passengers. Intoxication can lead to slips, falls overboard and other dangerous accidents. • It is illegal in every state and territory to operate a boat while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. BUI laws pertain to all vessels, from canoes and rowboats to the largest ships. Other boating safety facts: • 85 percent of people who drowned in a recreational boating accident were not wearing a life jacket. Always wear a life jacket. • Boat operator instruction is a significant factor in avoiding and surviving accidents. In accidents where the operator’s instruction was known, 73 percent of fatalities occurred on boats where the operator had not received any boating safety instruction. • In 2012, there were 12,101,936 recreational vessels registered in the United States.

NETC recognizes top performers of quarter By Ed Barker NETC Public Affairs

The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) recognized its top performers by announcing the senior and junior civilians of quarter June 3. Rear Adm. Mike White, NETC commander, commended the awardees as outstanding examples of the dedication at headquarters and noted their efforts are an indispensable part of the education and training mission. “The NETC team members we honor as civilians of the quarter are representative of the highly-trained professionals we have throughout the Navy training domain,” White said. “Our

civilians are a critical component of our warfighting capability and are a crucial part of our ability respond to fleet needs and therefore enable fleet readiness. The work performed by these patriots each and every day in training commands around the world is exemplary and key to the success of our Navy and Marine Corps team.” Jennifer Kennedy, a financial management ana-

lyst in the Resources, Requirements and Assessment Division (N8), was named the senior civilian of the quarter. According to Kennedy, what she likes best about working at NETC headquarters is the people support she receives. “I was shocked to receive the award, as I work with some really great people and can think of several that are truly deserving,” Kennedy said. “I take pride in my job and in knowing I have something to do with serving the great men and women that serve our country. I have the privilege to defend costs associated with the preparation and maintenance of both our Sailors entering boot camp and those already in the fleet.”

BBB warns consumers about popular summer scams From BBB serving Northwest Florida

S

ummer is a great time to take that long-overdue vacation or make much-needed home repairs, but as the weather heats up, so do scams.

Better Business Bureau (BBB) representatives serving Northwest Florida are warning consumers about popular summer scams. The following are common scams: • Don’t let a scam ruin your vacation: Fake travel agents and websites are known for touting too-good-to-be-true deals in the hopes of getting your money in return. Whether it’s a fake timeshare rental or a falsely promised Disney vacation, don’t let a vacation scam take you for a ride. Make sure the offer is legitimate by checking bbb.org first. • Keep your belongings safe during

your move: Summer is the peak time of year for changing residencies, and unlicensed movers and dishonest scammers are waiting to take advantage of the busy season. Not all price quotes online or over the phone are legitimate (or binding), and crooks are not likely to send an estimator to your home in advance. Also remember that the lowest estimate can sometimes be an unrealistic, low-ball offer, which may cost you more in the end. • Beware of summer concert ticket scams: Before paying for concert tickets online, make sure the seller is rep-

utable. Oftentimes, phony sellers will trick consumers into wiring money with no intention of sending real tickets. Most concert venues now allow ticket holders to print tickets from personal computers, which also gives scammers the opportunity to sell the same ticket over and over to unsuspecting consumers. Be wary of sellers who offer a sad tale as to why they cannot use the tickets; only accept cash; want the money wired or transferred through a prepaid account; and/or pressure you to act quickly. • Be wary of high pressure door-todoor sales tactics:Many door-to-door salesmen offer deals for everything from driveway paving to air conditioning repair to security systems. Before saying yes, get all

promises in writing, including start and finish dates. Never sign a contract that has an open-ended completion date or blank spaces. • Beware of job scams that can turn a hot summer cold: Finding summer employment is a top priority for most college and high school students. Don’t let the seasonal job hunt turn into a huge waste of time and money. Always be wary of employers who require fees for training and background checks, or who tout “no experience needed.” BBB considers these red flags for employment scams.
