Blues set to rock Pensacola Beach Patriotism soars: Pensacola Beach Air Show week with Blues, fireworks From Katie King EW Bullock Associates

Thousands flock to the sugar-white sand and turquoise water of the Gulf Coast each July to see the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration squadron perform at the annual Pensacola Beach Air Show. The Blue Angels are known across the country for their high-flying aerial maneuvers and laser-point precision. Started in 1946, the team celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2016 – a long legacy in a city whose reputation as a tourist destination is rivaled only by its military heritage. Pensacola is known as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation.” In a city with such deep military roots, few things arouse more pride than the sight of the Blues performing above the Gulf of Mexico. That pride will be on full display in days leading

up to this year’s air show, to be held July 8 on Santa Rosa Island. • July 4 – Bands on the Beach and Independence Day fireworks: Sing and sway to the tunes of Johnny Earthquake and the Moondogs at Bands on the Beach as the sun melts into the horizon along Pensacola Beach.

‘100 Years of Women at War’: One veteran’s perspective Commentary by Jerri Bell VAPoint contributor

Put a bunch of women veterans in a room, give them a mission to accomplish, and something almost magical ends up happening. I’ve seen this over and over in womenveterans-only writing workshops. And it happened in each of the four weekend sessions of the program “100 Years of Women at War,” a National Endowment for the Humanities-sponsored program presented by staff from the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and the University of Maryland School of Public Health. At each of the four workshops, more than a dozen women veterans – active-duty, reserve, and guard; officer and enlisted; and one courageous male spouse – engaged with documents and artifacts from women who served in World War I and women who served in the most recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. We read memoirs and diaries, examined photos and artifacts from the museum collections, listened to expert speakers, and wrote reflectively about their experiences and our own. Most importantly, though, we

connected. The connection was first made over a pair of high, laced black boots with pointed toes and blocky high heels. Sixteen of us were packed into a cramped storage room at the Smithsonian. Several uniforms had been mounted on mannequins in preparation for an upcoming exhibit; others were laid out on steel tables for examination as if we were biology students conducting a dissection. Our guides – historians and museum curators – explained various items from World War I: a barely-yellowed Navy nurse’s uniform; tiny-waisted, military-cut jackets and straight wool skirts worn by Red Cross volunteers; medical implements, ID cards, and sepia-tinted photographs of uniformed women. One woman pointed to the boots. “Imagine, it must have been so hard to work a 16hour shift on your feet all day in boots like those,” she said. Suddenly the dam broke. Stories flew. Several women who had deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan remembered how armor cut for men – when they were issued armor at all – chafed delicate skin and didn’t protect their vital areas. An-

Historic uniforms were on display during “100 Years of Women at War.”

other remembered how, 30 years earlier, the Army had retired women’s striped seersucker summer uniforms and replaced them with less comfortable and attractive greens. Some women shared stories of harassment and abuse; others, of brothers-in-arms who had been mentors and friends. In the second session two months later, four women veterans trained as facilitators led us in discussing several books from both time periods. The conversations ranged from the changes in women’s status in America to the difficulties of managing a military career and a family. One veteran brought many of the participants to tears when she shared a traumatic story from her

time in the Army: she had told no one but immediate family for more than three decades. At the end of the day she said, “This program has helped me process things I didn’t even know I needed to process.” The highlight of the program for many participants came in the third session, in March, when Maj. Lisa Jaster – the third woman to complete Army Ranger School and earn her Ranger tab – answered questions about her experience. University of Richmond professor Laura Browder explained how she had paired oral histories of 52 military women with their photographic portraits. Afterwards, participants completed a series of writing exercises around images of military women at various points in history. For some, the writing evoked long-buried feelings of anger. The theme of women veterans’ invisibility – first as women in uniform, and then after our reintegration into civilian society – came up repeatedly. In the final session in May, a representative from the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project and Browder explained how to collect veterans’ oral histories and where

to submit them. We examined an exhibit on military medicine in World War I and marveled at how far it has come in a hundred years. We looked at how the handful of black women who served in World War I – Navy yeomen (female) and Army nurses – had entered the military, and how their service had been understood by historians. Many of the program participants, like me, had almost always been assigned as “one of one” – we had been the only woman, or one of only a few women, at a command. We had had few chances to meet our sisters-in-arms or to connect, especially socially. For many of us, the program was the first time we had enjoyed the easy camaraderie. We ended the program with reflections on finding our “tribe,” military sisterhood, and the connections that come from the shared experience of military service, across generations and even across a century. “This program has changed my life,” one participant said.

President gives Mattis authority to set U.S. troop strength in Afghanistan By Jim Garamone DoD News, Defense Media Activity

W

ASHINGTON – President Donald J. Trump has delegated authority to manage the number of U.S. troops sent to Afghanistan to Defense Secretary James Mattis. The secretary spoke about this delegation in his opening statement during a budget hearing of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s defense subcommittee June 14. “The American military effort in Afghanistan must be viewed as part of a larger regional context in South Asia,” Mattis told the senators. “Our primary national interest and the international interest in Afghanistan is ensuring it does not become an ungoverned space from which attacks can be launched against the United States, other nations or the Afghan people,” he said.

Partnered operations, training Afghan forces: To meet this national interest, U.S. forces are conducting partnered counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan, while other U.S. forces are working with NATO’s Resolute Support mission to train Afghan security forces to shoulder their country’s security mission. “At noon yesterday, President Trump delegated to me the authority to manage troop numbers in Afghanistan,” Mattis said. “The delegation of this authority – consistent with the authority President Trump granted me two months ago for Iraq and

Syria – does not, at this time, change the troop numbers for Afghanistan.” Interagency partners: Mattis promised to work with interagency partners to define the way ahead. “I will set the U.S. military commitment, consistent with the commander in chief’s

strategic direction and the foreign policy as dictated by Secretary of State (Rex) Tillerson,” he said. The fight in Afghanistan remains important, the secretary said, noting that Afghanistan was the staging ground for the al-Qaida terrorists who at-

DoD launches online program to help military survivors of sexual abuse, assault From DoD News Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Defense Department June 13, launched an online and mobile educational program to help individuals begin to recover, heal and build resiliency after a sexual assault. The self-guided program, called, “Building Hope and Resiliency: Addressing the Effects of Sexual Assault,” can be completed at the user's pace and features information about coping mechanisms, practical relaxation exercises, definitions, links to resources and referrals for ongoing support. Research shows that some service members, including cadets and midshipmen, have experienced sexual abuse or sexual assault prior to joining the military. According to the DoD fiscal year 2016 Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military, approximately 10 percent, or 556 reports, of total service member victim reports involved incidents that occurred prior to military service. Supporting victims of sexual abuse, assault: In order to support these individuals, the DoD Sexual Assault Prevention and Response

Office (SAPRO), via a contract with the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN), developed and deployed this anonymous, self-guided educational program on the Safe Helpline (SHL). Recognizing the impact that trauma can have on an individual, this program is part of a comprehensive effort to enhance individual and collective resilience and improve readiness across the department. Users can take a brief, optional self assessment to gauge the effectiveness of their current coping strategies and whether they may benefit from additional support and resources. “Knowing there is a significant link between childhood sexual victimization and adulthood sexual revictimization and health problems, we wanted to help service members who experienced sexual assault prior to joining the military learn about topics like healthy relationships and coping strategies, and identify whether they would benefit from additional support and resources,” said Bette Inch, senior victim assistance advisor at SAPRO. “Being able to access this tool anonymously and from the pri-

vacy of your own room through the SHL is key for many service members,” Inch added. Innovative tools: As SAPRO and RAINN continue to seek ways to support survivors, innovative tools such as Building Hope offer a safe, convenient and private way to empower individuals in their healing journey. Members of the DoD community who have been affected by sexual assault can access confidential, anonymous support 24/7, through the DoD Safe Helpline at https://safehelpline.org/ or by calling 877-995-5247. Users can learn about and anonymously access the online program both on a computer and on a mobile device. To access the program, a user can visit the Building Hope page on the Safe Helpline website, https://safehelpline.org/buildinghope-and-resiliency. To learn more about the Safe Helpline app and how to download it to your mobile device visit https://www.safehelpline.org/aboutmobile.

tacked America on Sept. 11, 2001. “I would say that the reason we have not been attacked over many years from where the 9/11 attack originated is heavily due to the sacrifices that we have made over years as we have kept the enemy on the back foot,” Mattis said. “It’s hard for them to conduct external operations out of that former stronghold when they are just trying to hang onto their own lives and avoid us.” Part of the reason for a resurgence of violence in Afghanistan was that international support was reduced too soon, he said. “We pulled out our forces, at a time ... when the violence was lower,” he said. “But we pulled them out on a timeline, rather than consistent with the maturation of the government and the security forces.” U.S. and coalition forces are working the support mission, and Afghan forces will receive the air support that was in short supply, the secretary said. About 13,000 U.S and coalition troops are currently in Afghanistan.

Navy announces updated civilian workforce framework guidance From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – As part of the Navy’s ongoing efforts to strengthen its Navy team, several changes were announced June 16 in NavAdmin 139/17 aimed at improving leader engagement opportunities and reducing administrative distractions for Navy civilian teammates. Effective immediately, as with their military counterparts, Navy civilian employees will no longer be required to log onto Navy eLearning or Total Workforce Management Services to complete mandatory annual training. Instead, commands should conduct required training during small-group face-to-face sessions that engage employees and foster meaningful discussion. The only exception to this new policy is the Cyber Awareness Challenge that will continue to be an online training requirement. This change in alignment with policy released in NavAdmin 072/17 in March for Navy uniformed personnel. The NavAdmin also outlines other efforts commands should take in support of their Navy Civilian workforce. • Similar to military ceremonies, leaders are encouraged to recognize civilian employees by promoting and presenting awards publically. • Leaders are encouraged to provide timely and constructive feedback to their civilian employees. • Civilian training advocates will advise commanders on opportunities for civilian employee development, training and education. More details on these changes are in NavAdmin 139/17 found at http://www.npc.navy.mil.

NHP: Mental health part of overall wellness Story, photo by Ens. Courtney Avon NHP Public Affairs

I

f a service member came into work with a cold or injury, it would be a common occurrence for them to seek medical attention. Receiving care for mental health concerns is just as vital for overall wellness. To continue to raise the awareness of the importance mental health wellness yearround among servicemembers, Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) offers services that help with the realities of living with mental illnesses and to teach strategies for achieving and maintaining mental health wellness. The NHP Mental Health Clinic is staffed with psychiatrist, psychologists and social workers that provide services that include help with smoking cessation, one-on-one therapy, group therapy and medication management. “We treat anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, relationship stressors’ and more complex issues like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder,” said Lt. Melanie Roberson, department head, NHP Mental Health Clinic. Active-duty service members do not need a referral to seek treatment at the NHP Mental Health Clinic. The first step would be to call the mental

health clinic and let the staff know that you would like to schedule an appointment and if you have been seen before, said Roberson. “You as a patient get to decide what the best next step would be based off the initial appointment,” said Roberson, a psychiatrist. “It’s all about how do we get to better; what does better look like for each and every person who seeks help,” Roberson added. The Mental Health Clinic not only serves active-duty service members, but retirees and dependents who are enrolled in the hospital can also use the clinic. Also available to patients who receive their primary care at the hospital are social workers embedded into the Medicine Home Port Teams. The social workers with the family and internal medicine departments are available without a referral from a primary care manager. “I provide anything clinical such as cognitive behavioral therapy, brief solution focus

therapy, adjustment disorders, grief and loss support and communication therapy,” said Lt. Louis Sanchez, internal behavioral consult for NHP Family and Internal Medicine. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to his or her community. Service members, families and veterans tend

to face stressful situations that include deployments and being able to balance family life as well as military obligations. Some signs and symptoms of mental health stress include agitation or anger, drinking heavier than normal, difficulty concentrating, withdrawing from friends or family and sadness or depression. Being able to recognize signs help in maintaining mental wellness. To schedule an appointment at NHP’s Mental Health Clinic, call 505-6749. To schedule an appointment with a social worker with a Medical Home

Port Team, call 505-7171. In the case of a mental health emergency, call NHP’s Mental Health Clinic or 911.

Lt. Col. DeKraai turns over command of Whiting Field’s HT-28 to Cmdr. Dulin By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Officer

H

elicopter Training Squadron 28 (HT-28) observed a time-honored Navy tradition June 9 as the commanding officer of the unit passed command to another officer in the Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Atrium building. The change of command ceremony enabled Cmdr. Robert Dulin to accept the reins of HT28 from Marine Lt. Col. Cory DeKraai in front of the assembled military personnel, family, and friends. DeKraai turned over command following a successful 15-month tour in charge of the “Hellions.” However, it was a bittersweet moment for the Marine who admitted that the squadrons at the installation held fond memories for him. “Whiting Field will forever hold a special place for me,” he said. “As I wrap up my third tour here, I am going to miss the familiarity of having spent eight years of my career here. Starting out as a Red Knight, earning my wings as an eight-baller, coming back to instruct for the Vigilant Eagles, and now leaving the Hellions, NAS Whiting Field has touched the DeKraai family for the rest of our lives.” Dekraai’s time at HT-28 is just the latest stop in a highlysuccessful career that started when he graduated from Michigan State University and was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps. He completed flight training at NAS Whiting Field and earned his wings of gold in Aug. 1999. He has since served tours flying the CH-46E helicopter with

HMM-162 and MAG 29 at New River, N.C. and with MWSS-247 and MWSG-27 at Cherry Point, N.C. Additionally, DeKraai served with HT-18 as a helicopter flight instructor; Expeditionary Warfare School as a platoon commander, United States Special Operations Command in Suffolk, Va. and Marine Corps Forces Command in Norfolk, Va. He ended his remarks, before stepping down from the stage with Dulin to perform his final act as HT-28’s skipper. He received the squadron pennant from the unit’s senior-most enlisted service member and presented it to the new commanding officer. Dulin then stepped up to the microphone to read his official orders, and he addressed the squadron for the first time as their commanding officer. As he thanked his family, coworkers, and friends for their support through the years, he had a special message for the “Hellions” team that he had worked with for the past 15 months as the squadron’s executive officer. “I am so proud and honored for this opportunity to be your commanding officer,” he stated. “Your motivation, dedication,

and leadership make this squadron the best in the wing, and I am in constant awe of the miraculous things you do.” Dulin steps into the commander’s chair after 28 years of military service. He started his career in 1990 as a naval aircrewman and aviation electrician’s mate. He was selected for the Aviation Enlisted Commissioning Program in 1997 and earned his naval aviator’s wings in 2000 after completing helicopter flight training with HT-8. Following his initial training

in the MH-53 helicopter, Dulin served with Helicopter Combat Support Squadron Four in Sigonella, Sicily. He completed other tours with HC-2/HSC-2, USS Shreveport (LPD-12), HSC-28 and the United States Transportation Command at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., as a branch chief. Dulin also completed his master of business administration in 2006 from the Naval Post Graduate School and attended the Naval War College, earning a master’s in national security and strategic studies.

As the ceremony neared its conclusion, Dulin emphasized the importance of the squadron’s mission and the need to work together as a team. “Together we will pave a way for the future with hard work and dedication to the very core principles that make up our services and this command. We are the world’s finest and I am blessed to be part of this great team of dedicated professionals.” Lt. Col. Gregory Curtis replaces Dulin as the executive officer for the squadron.

peration Dry Water (ODW) heightened awareness and enforcement weekend starts June 30 and runs through July 2. ODW is a national awareness and enforcement campaign focused on reducing the number of alcohol- and drug-related accidents and fatalities, and fostering a stronger, more visible deterrent to alcohol and drug use on the water. 860,400 boaters during the annual three-day weekend. The campaign continues to make a significant impact on boater safety and spreading the message of the danger of

• Operation Dry Water is coordinated by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA), in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard as well as local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. • Agencies from all 56 U.S. states, trusts and territories are expected to participate in Operation Dry Water 2017 and in the ODW 2017 heightened awareness and enforcement weekend, June 30 – July 2. • Launched in 2009 by NASBLA in partnership with the United States Coast Guard, Operation Dry Water has been a highly successful campaign, drawing public attention to the dangers of boating under the influence (BUI) of alcohol and drugs. • Since the inception of the Operation Dry Water Campaign in 2009, law enforcement officers have removed 2,520 BUI operators from the nation’s waterways and made contact with more than

NASBLA, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the participating law enforcement agencies nationwide, Operation Dry Water focuses on spreading awareness of the danger of boating under the influence as well as changing the cultural acceptance of drinking and boating. • In 2016, 538 local, state, and federal agencies participated in Operation Dry Water. During the three-day heightened awareness and enforcement weekend law enforcement officers contacted 131,054 boaters, made 367 BUI arrests and issued 18,659 citations and warnings for safety violations. • In 2016, nearly 6,200 officers from 538 local, state, and federal agencies participated in the 72 hours of heightened BUI enforcement.

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 cold-water 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 in-

clude fines, jail, loss of boating privileges, even loss of driving privileges. • A three-year field evaluation by the Southern California Research 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 large ships.

NETC recognizes top-performing civilians By Enid Wilson Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

N

aval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced two of its top-performing civilian employees for the second quarter June 14. NETC Commander Rear Adm. Mike White praised the awardees for their hard work and consistent effort supporting the Navy’s training mission. “Our civilian workforce brings critical knowledge, skills and abilities to what we do at NETC every day,” said White. “It’s a privilege for me to highlight two of our teammates who put forth so much effort, often behind the scenes, to making a positive impact by improving our processes and our products. They embody the pride and

professionalism of the NETC team.” Elaine Pelletier, originally from Point Pleasant, N.J., was named the Senior Civilian of the Quarter (CoQ) for her work on the Work Year Personnel Cost (WYPC) system in the Budget Submitting Office (BSO). Pelletier, a NETC financial management analyst, was cited for using her extensive knowledge and experience with accounting systems to understand a complex information technology (IT) system and to create comprehensive user guides,

conduct extensive user training and develop automated work aids. “Elaine is a great asset to our office,” said Pat Storey, NETC budget officer. “She single-handedly developed and implemented a process to balance WYPC with actual labor cost that saves countless manpower hours across our domain. The process she developed was so good that it was adopted throughout the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BuPers) domain.” Pelletier said it is imperative that she keeps everyone apprised of all changes that occur in WYPC, as well as related information in Standardized Accounting & Reporting System (STARS). “I am a people person and take pride in giving great cus-

tomer service,” said Pelletier. “I research an activity’s unique circumstances prior to giving training, so that it is not just barebones guidance and can really help them.” Serving as a hospital corpsman stationed at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) in the early 1980s, Pelletier attributes her outstanding work ethic to the training she received while serving in the Navy. Shawn Bernard, an IT specialist with NETC Education Management, was recognized as the Junior CoQ. He works with the My Education website, which supports the Navy College Program and is a resource for Sailors who are preparing to make the next move in their careers through voluntary education.

“Mr. Bernard rebuilt the My Education Tuition Assistance documents to ensure all reports would be available to users when the application underwent technical refresh,” said Laurine Anderson, branch manager. “He was an integral part of the upgrade project where he worked against short timelines.” Anderson said Bernard is highly respected by his peers for his technical knowledge and expertise along with his willingness to learn and collaborate on projects. Bernard served 15 years in the Navy before taking an internship at NETC in early 2015 through Pathways, a federal government program for students and recent graduates. “Hard work and education have helped me reap rewards in my life, and it allows me to be an example for family and friends as well as those who are not as fortunate in life,” said Bernard.
