The Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) International Training Center (NITC) is holding its semiannual International Professional Advanced Leadership (IPAL) course onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola
from May 27 to July 1. The five-and-a-half-week course is designed to provide international military and civilian security forces personnel from allied nations with state-of-the-art leadership education and training. “The current IPAL course is the 16th resident (session) to be held,” See IPAL on page 2
Due to recent incidences with electronic cigarettes, NASP will move forward with a new policy to restrict e-cigs from and NASP buildings, barracks, and any NASP government vehicle effective immediately. E-cigs and other handheld Advanced Personal Vaporizers (APVs) also known as “vape pens and vape mods,” have been the culprit to several on-base disturbances and personal injuries to service members. In the past two months, three service members were burned by a malfunction or tampering with the lithium battery, and fire alarms were activated due to some e-cigs overheating. “These e-cigarettes are a hazard to individuals and others,” said Jonathan Winters, NAS Pensacola safety officer. “There is an increasing number of injuries due to improper handling, battery malfunctioning, modifications or dam-
age to the device.” According to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), media reports cite 25 separate incidences related to APVs or e-cigs and 20 of those cases were related to battery. “Modifications, improper use, damaged areas on the device or the battery, and overheating all put stress on the battery,” said Winters. “It will deliver exactly the amount of power you’re asking for but if it shorts out, it can be very dangerous to yourself and others.” Lithium ion batteries in our cell phones and tablets are pouch-like and are able to expand and flex. The e-cig battery however, is particularly dangerous because of the metal cylindrical shape that has the weak structural points at the ends, which can result in a type of high-pressured rocket or explosion. If you have any questions, make sure to check with your command about their current policies on e-cigs and APVs.
NavFac small business program recognized by veteran association By Don Rochon Naval Facilities Engineering Command Public Affairs
WASHINGTON (NNS) – The National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) recognized the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) for its proficiency in awarding contracts to veteran-owned small businesses June 21. “It is our pleasure to recognize NavFac for your accomplishments in using veteran and serv-
ice-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses in your procurement program in fiscal year 2015,” said NVSBC Executive Director Scott Denniston, in a letter to the command. NVSBC is a nationwide, not for profit, trade association promoting the use of veteran-owned and service-disabled, veteranowned small businesses in federal contracting as prime and
subcontractors. Last year, NavFac awarded 8.4 percent of contract awards to veteran-owned small businesses and 6.2 percent to service disabled, veteranowned small businesses – which exceeds the congressionally mandated goal of 3 percent. “We are honored to receive this award,” said NavFac Commander Rear Adm. Bret Muilenburg. “To be recognized for our
efforts in helping veteran-owned businesses is a testament to all the hard work of our Small Business Program.” Last year, awarded contracts totaled more than $538 million in obligations to veteran-owned small businesses, including nearly $400 million to servicedisabled, veteran-owned small businesses. “NavFac has a proud history of exceptional success in leveraging the capabilities of our nation’s veteran-owned small
businesses,” said Scott Crosson, small business program associate director. “The command’s enterprise-wide efforts clearly demonstrate support for public policy, but more importantly, they exemplify smart business decisions.” For more information, visit http:// www. navy. mil/, http:// www. facebook. com/usnavy/, or http:// www. twitter. com/usnavy/.

The Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA), completed training of its 1,000th international water survival student May 27. Lt. Marco Tullio Cicerone from the Italian Navy completed the training as preparation for his attending the Joint Diving Officer Course at the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center, Panama City, Fla. “I am very grateful for the training and am confident I will perform well at the Joint Diving Officer School,” Cicerone said. NETSAFA’s International Training Center (NITC) at NAS Pensacola was established in 1988 to meet the aviation specific training needs of international officer and enlisted students from allied nations. “Water survival is one of many preparatory courses See NITC on page 2

said Paul Roarke, the program’s lead instructor. “It is the first of two resident courses that NITC hosts each year.” IPAL is also held abroad, providing sessions in participating allied countries and modifying them for current events. “We recently went to Antigua and developed a unique four-hour package on force protection,” said Roarke. The objective of the program is to instruct international participants in leadership and professional military subjects to improve existing skills and gain a greater understanding of challenges military leaders across the world face. The course also provides them with knowledge for potential future advancement within their respective country’s military. “Ranging from ranks E-5 to O-3 and encompassing all military services from more than 60 countries, IPAL is available to personnel with ranks equivalent to that of U.S. senior enlisted to junior officers,” said Roarke. “In this class alone we have students from Madagascar, Kosovo, Samoa, Saint Vincent, Nigeria, Slovak Republic and Trinidad/Tobago.” The general topics covered in IPAL include public speaking, personality profiling, time management, instructor training and subordinate mentorship/counseling. Professional military topics such as Rules of Engagement, International Law, Law of Armed Conflict and Human Rights are taught as well and coincide with important personnel issues such as sexual harassment, military discipline and equal opportunity. Students engage in both classroom lecture and hands-on exercises in order to gain a better understanding of the subjects they are taught. To facilitate a hands-on leadership experience, significant emphasis is placed on physical training varying from standard morning exercise routines three times a week to a Leadership Reaction Course (LRC) located on base that students go to two times a week. As the only training program under NITC that uses the LRC, the students spend a total of 14 hands-on class hours using various tools to work through multiple types of physical obstacles such as walls and bridges. The goal of the LRC is to simulate “real world” scenarios they may encounter in the field to develop teamwork and small unit leadership. Leading Writer (U.S. corporal equivalent) Latoya Sobion-Philanders from the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard enthusiastically explained she has a great appreciation for being given the opportunity to attend the IPAL course and has enjoyed working with other military personnel from around the world. “Meeting people from different walks of life and having open and receptive discussions has been my favorite part of the program so far,” said Sobion-Philanders. “It allows me to see things through a different ‘lens’ and experience the way other people view things, which is great.” “I am very proud of our program, instructors, and graduates, and how much they accomplish,” said Roarke. “Our ultimate goal with the IPAL course is that it will help transform our students into more effective leaders, who will then return home with an enhanced set of leadership skills.” For more information about Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity and the IPAL program under NITC, visit the NETSAFA website: https://www. netsafa.navy.mil.

Tips for water safety, Zika prevention By Katie Lange DoD News, Defense Media Activity
School’s out for the summer, which means your children are about to have free rein over your house, property, the pool and goodness knows what else for the next several weeks. While that’s great for them, there are a lot of problems that can crop up – mainly, them forgetting the rules and thinking they’re invincible – so you’ll probably want to go over some summer safety tips with them before you set them loose upon the world, or your neighborhood. Water safety: Pools, the beach, lakes, sprinklers, water parks – you name it, a lot of summer activities involve water. But water fun comes with a lot of safety concerns, too. First things first: Make sure the water your children are playing in is sanitary. While this is more obvious for lakes, rivers and oceans, it’s also important to check swimming pools, hot tubs, water parks and communal play fountains, because while you might think chlorine kills all germs right away, it doesn’t. A pool with the correct pH and disinfectant levels should kill most germs within an hour, according to the CDC, but some germs, like Crypto, can take days to die. If you’re going to your installation’s pool or a public one: • Stay out of the water if you’re sick or have an open wound. If you can, rinse off in a shower for a quick minute to get rid of any dirt or grime that might be on you. • Check the pool’s most recent inspection results to see if it’s being kept up to regulation standards. • Make sure the pool’s drain is visible and in good shape. • Check to see if a lifeguard is on duty; if not, there should be a “no lifeguard on duty” sign posted. • If you have your own pool: Do the same things as above, but also monitor its chlorine level regularly. • If you’re on a boat or around open bodies of water: AlNHP from page 1

Noodles, water wings and other swim aides are meant for fun, not for safety, so don’t rely on them for the same protection. • Make sure you know your child’s swimming ability level. If you plan on having your children near water any time of year, you should look into getting them swim lessons. You can find lessons near you by contacting your local Morale, Welfare and Recreation office (onboard NAS Pensacola, visit http:// www. navy mwr pensacola. com/ programs/ 0c0489b1-ee89-4de0-8f89-4ae0c6440e54). • Parents should also always have a basic knowledge of life-saving skills, such as CPR, just in case something goes wrong.

Dresser’s last stand: Nothing a little glue won’t fix By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
om, can someone finally do something about my dresser?” my daughter Lilly demanded recently. “Oh, is it broken again?” I feigned ignorance. “Yeah, the thing is like, totally falling apart this time,” she told me. But I already knew. Two pulls were missing from the drawers. The mirror was perched precariously on its supporting wooden arms, one of which was wobbly. The drawers no longer slid easily on their brittle rails. With warped wood and ancient glue, the entire piece was coming apart at every joint and dovetail. “Nothing a dab of Elmer’s won’t fix,” I said. Poor Lilly rolled her eyes. She knew it was no use. Not only is everything in our house showing its age, half of what we own was already old when we bought it. The treasures I lovingly refer to as “antique,” “vintage,” “retro,” or “shabby chic,” my family calls “a bunch of broken-down used

junk.” Semantics. I bought Lilly’s dresser for a cool $150 at an antique mall in Virginia back in 2005. It was tall, with a beveled mirror mounted on two curved arms, and a working skeleton keyhole on each of its six drawers. Its lovely bird’s eye maple veneer was a cheerful shade of yellow-gold. “It’s used, Mom,” Lilly said quite accurately, begging for the new pink and purple particle board set imported from China that she saw at Walmart. Much to my children’s dismay, our entire house is filled with “used” furniture – hand-me-downs from family, discards from military friends who moved away, garage sale finds and some legitimate antiques. The girls tell me they feel like they are living in the midst of a flea market, and

She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. our son calls our house “The Rest Home.” But what the children don’t understand is that we furnished our home with affordable things out of the ne-
cessity of a tight military budget. When my husband and I married back in 1993, he contributed a couch, a desk and a bed to our new apartment, all of which we still use to this day. I contributed a bookcase that is currently in my daughter’s room, an old Singer sewing table that is in our hallway, and the red-painted sideboard that sits in our mudroom. When Aunt Millie died, we got her dining room buffet, my husband’s dresser and some end tables complete with Millie’s cigarette burns. And we filled in the gaps with items we found along the way. Believe it or not, it isn’t all junk – while stationed in Europe, we bought a Victorian marble-topped wash stand, an English pine armoire, a 100-year-old French bed frame, and a sturdy Belgian farmhouse mid-century kitchen table and chairs. Sure, I will confess that I shamelessly salvaged a couple of items from other people’s trash. I once scrambled into a dumpster to save two sturdy solid oak English chairs that sit at our kitchen table today. And I just barely squeezed a channel-back
armchair into our minivan after seeing it sitting on the side of a lonely Pennsylvania country road cradling a sign upon which was written the irresistible word, “Free.” It only took a year of fumigating in the garage before I put it in our living room, and that musty smell is almost all gone. As for Lilly’s dresser, with some fresh glue and a few strategically placed clamps, I will get a couple more years out of it. Besides, it doesn’t really matter whether I pay top dollar at Pottery Barn or pocket change at Pete’s Salvage Emporium, as long as the love in our home is given freely.

NASP education fair offers wealth of resources, opportunities Story, photo by Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) Public Affairs
epresentatives from nearly twodozen colleges, universities and educational support organizations were on hand June 7 for the NAS Pensacola Navy College Office Education Fair. The fair, held in the Naval Air Technical Training Center’s (NATTC) Charles Taylor Hangar, offered counseling and resources for Department of Defense ID card holders from the greater Pensacola area. “We wanted to offer our service members and families a wide range of educational opportunities in one place, giving them a chance to do some comparison shopping,” said Elise McGuire, director of Navy College Office Pensacola. “Education fairs, whether virtual or in-person, can provide a tremendous amount of information for those wanting to begin or continue their college journey.”
Hundreds of Sailors and Marines attended the fair, most leaving with bags filled with giveaways and pamphlets. Although most attendees were students attending A-school and just starting their careers, some senior members were also in the information-gathering mode. “I have my associate degree, and am now searching for a bachelor’s program,” said ACC(AW/SW) William Gernert, Basic Radar Instructor at Air

Secretary Mabus names destroyer after pioneering Navy nurse From Secretary of the Navy Public Affairs
ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) – During a ceremony to honor women who served in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced an Arleigh-Burke class destroyer, DDG 123, will be named Lenah H. Sutcliffe Higbee. Higbee, the future ship’s namesake, was a pioneering United States Navy chief nurse, who served as the superintendent of the U.S. Navy Nurse Corps during World War I and was the first female recipient of the Navy Cross. “It is a great honor to name this ship in recognition of Lenah H. Sutcliffe Higbee,” said Mabus. “I have no doubt that all who serve aboard her will carry on the legacy of service and commitment exemplified by this pioneer of U.S. Navy Nurse Corps.” The former USS Higbee (DD 806), commissioned in 1945, was the first ship named in her honor and the first U.S. Navy combat ship to bear the name of a female member of the Naval service. Mabus honored the service and sacrifice of women who served in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps during a sunset parade on United States Marine Corps Iwo Jima Memorial grounds. “This ship will be a part of our fleet for decades, and the legacy of Lenah Sutcliffe Higbee and her service to our nation will live on for decades through the ship’s voyages across the oceans, and through the lives of the crew who will sail aboard it,” said Mabus. “Higbee’s professionalism, leadership and selfless dedication to her nurses and patients reflect the highest standards of naval service,” said Dr. Regina T. Akers, naval historian. “She and her nurses provided the best treatment possible often under some of the worse conditions. Higbee will continue to inspire all who learn of her courage, honor and commitment.” Arleigh-Burke class destroyers conduct a variety of operations from peacetime presence and crisis response to sea control and power projection. DDG 123 will be capable of fighting air, surface and subsurface battles simultaneously and will contain a combina-

tion of offensive and defensive weapon systems designed to support maritime warfare, including integrated air and missile defense and vertical launch capabilities. The ship will be constructed at Ingalls Shipbuilding, a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries, in Mississippi and is expected to enter the Navy fleet in 2024. The ship will be 509 feet long, have a beam length of 59 feet and be capable of operating at speeds in excess of 30 knots.

Team Navy receives warm welcome at 2016 Warrior Games By Shannon Leonard and Robin Hillyer-Miles Special contributors to Navy Installations Command Public Affairs
EST POINT, N.Y. (NNS) – Athletes and families were officially welcomed to the 2016 Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games during a celebration dinner sponsored by the Warrior Games Family Program at Hilton Woodcliff Lake, N.J., June 14. Athletes from the United States’ and United Kingdom's armed forces, along with family members and caregivers, were in attendance to kick off this year’s games which are taking place at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y. The evening included welcoming remarks from Karen Guenther, Semper Fi Fund chief executive president and officer, founder; and Kenneth Fisher, Fisher House Foundation chairman and chief executive officer. “We are not here just to honor your role in recovery, but also your families’ role in recovery,” Fisher told the athletes. The evening continued with dinner and messages from guest speaker, retired U.S. Army Col. Gregory D. Gadsen, with closing remarks by Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen Jr., 59th superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy.
Team Navy competed in sitting volleyball matches on the morning of June 15 to determine the bracket for the competition for gold on June 21, but were defeated.
“We put up a good fight, but in the end just got outplayed; however, we never got shut out,” said HM1 Shane Gilley. “All of our games were close.” Gilley credits Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor as a tremendous support system on his path to recovery. “Being stationed away from any military treatment facility after my accident, things were really confusing for my caregivers since they’ve never

Members of Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast, the NAS Whiting Field firefighters, expressed that bond in an impressive fashion recently with a unique take on the symbol under which they all serve – the American flag. “A lot of men and women died for the flag and we wanted to do it right, it was important to me and to all of us,” firefighter Steven Hudson said. Using materials inherent to their roles, the firefighters created a flag to present to the installation and to the security force team. The flags were made with retired hoses painted red, white and blue. The stars were specially ordered, and the entire piece is framed in stained wood. For the NAS Whiting Field display, the words “Naval Air Station
Whiting Field” were burned in, and along the side on a steel background, Whiting Fields’s unit patches are displayed. Following an installation department head meeting, members of the fire department surprised NASWF Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau and Whiting Field staff with the presentation of the custombuilt flag June 7. Firefighters responsible for crafting the piece were Steven Hudson, Eric Aning and Nick Carter. Patrick Hawkins also worked on the flag, contributing the flag’s wood framing. The piece was completed in stages and work was accomplished in different areas near the fire department. A storage room was used and when the project outgrew the work area, the firefighters found other spaces to house materials and parts of the flag. The hoses were carefully cut

and then painted with many layers of patriotic colors. Next came the framing, wood working, patch collecting and steel cutting. The stars were integrated into the piece and finally the hoses were mounted in the frame. Ensuring the proper dimensions of the flag and the piece in its entirety was also an important detail that was not overlooked. “The ratio of the flag and its dimensions were really important – I looked up everything. I wanted it to be accurate,” Aning said. A particularly challenging part of the project was the flag’s stars. The firefighters tried several solutions for making the stars, including painting them on, as well as fabricating them out of foam board. According to Hudson, the search for the perfect starts included some internet searching; in the end, the stars were ordered
from an online source. “We originally tried painting them on, but that didn’t work,” said Aning. “We made lots of trips to craft stores to find materials and ideas,” said Hudson. This is the third flag the trio has produced. The second was recently presented to the men and women of Whiting Field’s security department as a sign of solidarity and to honor them during police week. Hudson stated that with cops at times receiving negative headlines in the news, the firefighters wanted to express their appreciation for the law enforcement mission. The first flag was made and hung in the firefighters’ home station at the NAS Whiting Field Fire Department. The police flag was “a good way to show our support for them,” Hudson explained, “And we wanted it to be a surprise – I think we were able to catch them off guard and it happened when they weren’t expecting anything.” For Carter, a flag dedicated
to law enforcement professionals was both important and personal. Carter’s father is a retired Florida Highway Patrol trooper. Aning said there were nights they stayed up late trying to figure out the best way to put it all together or finding ways that might make it look better. The three couldn’t estimate a particular number of hours that it took for the project to be completed, just that it was an on-going project they worked on whenever they had or could make the time. They estimated that it took several long weeks to make each flag. The camaraderie between firefighters is obvious. Many of these men are second- or third-generation public servants. Although their jobs can be routine much of the time, they are always ready when the alarm sounds. The three flags, now displayed in key areas across the installation, showcase the pride and professionalism in service shared by all three organizations.

f the surge in barbecue and smoking competitions across the country is any indication, grilling has become an art form. This summer, gather around the grill or try a new technique that’s rising in popularity – smoking – to create a masterpiece meal – and plenty of memories. From secret marinades to tricked out grills and smokers, competitive smokers know there is a near ritualistic approach to teasing the perfect flavor out of a premium cut of meat. Follow in the footsteps of those pit masters and smoke Rinse brisket with vinegar, then water. like a pro with these tips from Omaha Steaks Executive Chef Karl Marsh.
Start with style
The first step is deciding how you’d like to prepare your meat. Consider stepping up your game by smoking your meat. Smoking is a popular choice because it infuses flavor through out the meat, while extended cook times at low temperatures make it extra tender. Another advantage is the chance to create a wide range of unique flavors using wet and dry rubs, as well as seasoned wood chips and planks.
Choose your cut
Virtually any meat can be smoked, but the most popular cuts of meat to smoke are brisket, ribs, pork shoulder or turkey, all of which are typ ically large in size. Guarantee a great experi ence with Omaha Steaks Brisket for smoking or Whole Pork Butt, which were created with the competitive barbecue and smoking circuit in mind.
Dry meat and prepare rub.
Ancho Chile Rubbed Smoked Beef Brisket
Prep time: 1 hour Cook time: 11-13 hours Rest time: 1-2 hours Total time: 13-16 hours 1 Whole Omaha Steaks Brisket for smoking 2 cups white vinegar 2/3 cup yellow mustard 3/4 cup Omaha Steaks Ancho Chile Rub 4 cups Ancho Chile Smoking Spritzer, divided (recipe below) 8 cups apple or cherry wood chips, soaked in water Remove brisket from bag and rinse with white vinegar then rinse with water. Dry completely using paper towels. Slather brisket generously with yellow mustard. Rub generously with ancho chile rub and inject with 1 cup Ancho Chile Smoking Spritzer. Prepare smoker using 1 chimney of pure lump charcoal fully lit and one chimney of pure lump charcoal unlit. Make sure water pan is full and adjust vents until smoker maintains a temperature between 225 and 250 F. Place brisket on smoker fat side up and brush smoking spritzer over top. Every hour, check smoker temp, squirt with smoking spritzer and add handful of wood chips. After 3 hours, flip brisket fat side down and squirt with spritzer. After 6 hours, flip brisket fat side up. Wrap heavy duty foil around the last 3-4 inches of brisket tip to prevent it from drying out. Restock water pan and add lump charcoal as needed. Adjust vents until temperature is between 225 and 250 F. Beginning at 8 hours, check internal temperature every hour and apply spritzer and wood chips. Between 11-13 hours, when internal temperature is between 195 and 200 F, if fork slides easily into brisket, it is done. Let brisket rest for 1-2 hours before slicing and serving.
Ancho Chile Rubbed Smoked Pork Butt
Ready your rub
Rubs are often used to add flavors and surface texture to a cut of meat. For best results, brush meat with cooking oil or another liquid ingre dient (such as yellow mustard) before adding the rub. Spread the rub on a clean plate and place the meat on it. Coat both sides with the rub by gently pressing the meat on the plate.
Set up the smoker
Some pit masters consider their equipment as vital an ingredient as the meat or flavorings they choose. Preparation varies from one recipe to the next, but one constant is the importance of maintaining a steady temperature. As you prepare your charcoal, be conscious of where you’ll place any wood chips or other flavor enhancers for maximum impact.
Coat meat generously with rub.
Slow and steady
Sensational flavor takes time to build, so plan to dedicate several hours to your task. Often, smoked foods require foil wrapping for at least a portion of the cook to retain moisture. Plan to check in at regular intervals to restock wood chips, flip or rotate meat and apply a fresh coat of seasoning or spices. Find more tips and recipes perfect for a smoking summer at omahasteaks.com.
Prep time: 1 hour Cook time: 8-10 hours Rest time: 1 hour Total time: 10-12 hours 1 Omaha Steaks Whole Pork Butt 2 cups white vinegar 1/2 cup yellow mustard 1/2 cup Omaha Steaks Ancho Chile Rub 4 cups Ancho Chile Smoking Spritzer, divided (recipe below) 8 cups apple or cherry wood chips, soaked in water Score top fat so it will melt into pork while smoking and allow more rub to get into meat. Rub pork with white vinegar then rinse with water. Pat dry with clean paper towels. Rub pork butt with yellow mustard. Rub pork butt with ancho chile rub. Inject pork with 10-12 ounces of Ancho Chile Smoking Spritzer. Set up smoker with 1 chimney using unlit lump charcoal and 2 chimneys using lit lump charcoal. Adjust vents in smoker until temperature settles between 225 and 250 F. Place pork butt fat side up and add a lot of wood chips. Every half hour, add more wood chips and spritz pork with smoking spritzer. After 2 hours, insert remote thermometer probes. Be careful not to let thermometer touch bone to prevent false readings. After 5 hours, place pork in foil pan and liberally coat with spritzer. Wrap pan tightly with foil. Continue cooking without adding wood chips or opening smoker until thermometer hits 190 F (for sliced meat) or 200 F (for pulled meat), about 8-10 hours total. Let rest 1 hour before serving.
Ancho Chile Smoking Spritzer Inject brisket with marinade.
Makes: 4 cups 2 cups apple juice 1 cup cranberry juice 1 cup canola oil 2 tablespoons red hot pepper sauce 1/2 cup Omaha Steaks Ancho Chile Rub Combine all ingredients and mix well.

National BUI enforcement and education campaign peration Dry Water (ODW) heightened awareness and enforcement weekend starts today (June 24) and runs through June 26. ODW is a national awareness and enforcement campaign focused on reducing the number of alcoholand drug-related accidents and fatalities, and fostering a stronger, more visible deterrent to alcohol and drug use on the water. From http:// www.operationdrywater.org
Operation Dry Water is coordinated by the NationalAssociation 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 2016 and in the ODW 2016 heightened awareness and enforcement weekend. Launched in 2009, 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 2,153 BUI operators from the nation’s waterways and made contact with more than 729,000 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 boating under the influence. Operation Dry Water is held in June just prior to the Fourth of July holiday, a holiday known for increased boaters on the wa-
ters where alcohol use is prevalent, as are subsequent boating accidents and fatalities. Alcohol use is the leading known contributing

the primary known 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 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 include 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 the largest ships. Other boating safety facts: • 84 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, 77 percent of fatalities occurred on boats where the operator had not received any boating safety instruction.

CID Unit Corry Station hosts family day open house Stry, photo by MC3 Taylor L. Jackson CID Public Affairs
enter for Information Dominance (CID) Unit Corry Station hosted a family day open house and picnic June 10. Staff and instructors gave their family members a rare glimpse into what they do to prepare the fleet’s next generation of information warfare professionals. More than 80 family members walked the halls of Corry Station’s training facilities, exploring the offices and classrooms where their Sailors instruct students. “In our line of work, most of our family members never get to see what it is we do every day,” said Cmdr. Christopher Eng, CID Unit Corry Station commanding officer. “I think that having a day where we open the doors to family members is a good way to give our families a real visual of what we do to train in-
formation warfare specialists, and it lets them know that we recognize the importance of what they do to help us accomplish our mission.” Following a two-hour window for touring the CID Unit Corry Station school buildings, Sailors and their families were invited to attend a picnic sponsored by the command’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) committee. Nearly 100 family members and their accompanying Sailors attended the picnic, which included games,

karaoke, face painting and a barbeque, and several CID Unit Corry Station staff members and students volunteered their time to help make the event a success. “I think the family day event is a great way to make connections with people, especially if you’re new to the area,” said IT1 Christopher Jackson. “It’s not always easy for our family members to meet new
people. Bringing everybody together like this gives our spouses and kids an opportunity to make new friends.” IT1 David Carson said he believes the family day event allowed Sailors and their families to build a bridge between the Navy family and the family at home, bringing everyone together under one roof. Eng considered the family day open house
and picnic a success, praising the MWR team for exceeding all of his expectations. “We rely so much upon our families for support, and hosting a family day gives us a chance to say ‘thank you’,” said Eng. “This event is our way of giving back to our families for all of their strength, resiliency and courage.” CID Unit Corry Station provides a contin-
uum of training to Navy and joint service personnel that prepares them to conduct information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

Time to check, stock up on emergency supplies From Defense Commissary Agency
FORT LEE, Va. â€“ Although military commissaries arenâ€™t equipped to predict the next emergency, they do encourage patrons to use their benefit to be prepared. The Defense Commissary Agency (DCA) routinely offers savings compared to commercial stores on the necessary items for any emergency, said Tracie Russ, agency sales director. â€œIt would be nice if we could accurately predict the impact of the next storm when it came to power outages, interruptions in available water and store closures. However, we do know from past experience itâ€™s better to plan for the unexpected,â€? Russ said. â€œThatâ€™s why we work with our industry partners to offer deep discounts on many of
the food products and other items our patrons need to be prepared.â€? As they take stock of their state of readiness, military patrons can shop at local commissaries for items considered appropriate for disaster preparedness. According to a May 13 forecast from the Weather Channel, the 2016 hurricane season is expected to have 14 named storms, eight of which will be hurricanes with three of the hurricanes potentially being category 3 or higher. The North Atlantic hurricane season runs June 1 to Nov. 30 and covers the North Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Emergency preparedness officials suggest having a disaster supply kit that
includes the following items: â€˘ Water: At least one gallon daily, per person (three-day supply for evacuation, twoweek supply for home). Nonperishable â€˘ foods: Canned meats, fruits, vegetables, dried fruits, nuts, raisins, cereal, crackers, cookies, energy bars, granola, peanut butter, and foods for infants and the elderly (three-day supply for evacuation, two-week supply for home). â€˘ Paper goods: Writing paper, paper plates, paper towels and toilet paper. â€˘ Cooking items: Pots, pans, baking sheets, cooking utensils, charcoal, a grill and a manual can opener. â€˘ First-aid kit: Including bandages, medicines and medications. â€˘ Cleaning materials: Bleach, sani-
tizing spray, and hand and laundry soap. â€˘ Toiletries: Personal hygiene items and moisture wipes. â€˘ Lighting accessories: Flashlight, batteries, candles and matches. â€˘ Other useful items: Cell phone with chargers, extra cash, maps of the area, blankets or sleeping bags, battery-powered or hand-crank radio, pet care items, Duct tape, scissors and a multipurpose tool. â€˘ Copies of personal documents: Family and emergency contact information, medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates and insurance policies.

Fleet and Family Support Center
If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
