Sundown ceremony held for T-39 Sabreliner ‘Queen of the skies over Pensacola’ will make last flight Sept. 3 By Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

NAS Pensacola and its training squadrons bid an official farewell to one of its longest-serving training aircraft, the T-39 Sabreliner, with a “sundown ceremony” for the aircraft June 20 at the National Naval Aviation Museum. Guest speaker for the event was Rear Adm. Donald Gaddis, program executive officer, tactical aircraft programs. Rear Adm. Roy Kelley, Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA); Commodore Capt. Willie D. Billingslea, Commander Training Air Wing Six (TraWing-6); and Randy Hall Jr., president of Vertex Logistics Solutions, also delivered remarks. “Every once in a while an event occurs that changes the basic way the group does business,” Gaddis said. “One such event occurred in 1963 when the Sabreliner joined the naval service. It would eventually become the workhorse of aviator training, and would help produce over 12,000 NFOs, U.S. Air Force weapons systems officers, mission specialists, asA group of T-39 Sabreliners in a division flight near Ono Island, Ala., in preparation for tronauts, flight surgeons and pilots. “This airplane has been in service the sundown ceremony.

longer than most of us have been alive,” Gaddis said. “It’s done a tremendous job in our great Navy and our great nation.” Gaddis went on to address the T-39’s long service life, personifying the aircraft in praising its accomplishments. “You will not be forgotten by the generations of aviators who flew you ... You challenged us, and taught us how to be part of a crew ... You deserve the credit for preparing well our warriors of the air, and for that we are truly grateful.” The “Gray Eagles,” a group of T-39 contract pilots with considerable hours in the aircraft, referred to the Sabreliner as a “grand old dame of aviation” and “queen of the skies over Pensacola” in the ceremony program. “The Sabreliner leaves the service at the peak of her capabilities ... She accomplished every mission asked with perfection (and) played an essential part in the changes that reshaped the training command and naval aviation. Thank you, Sabreliner, for building a truly outstanding aircraft that served our wonderful nation for so long.” The last student is scheduled to fly onboard a T-39 flight in late August; Training Squadron 4 (VT-4) will fly the last flight of the T-39 Sept. 3.

While streaming media provided a front-row seat to a ceremony featuring President Barack Obama presenting the nation’s highest combat valor award to a slight, unassuming Marine, one Pensacola Sailor witnessed the presentation first-hand. And unlike the majority of individuals in atten-

dance at the June 19 ceremony in the White House’s East Wing, this Sailor also bore witness to the events which saw then Marine Lance Cpl. William Kyle Carpenter throw himself between a grenade and another Marine in an effort to shield that service member while on guard duty in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan. The Sailor who witnessed both the ceremony

and the events leading to it, HM3(FMF) Christopher Frend, was the corpsman attached to Carpenter’s unit, and ultimately saved the Marine’s life. A Florida native, Frend enlisted as a hospital corpsman in 2007, a decision which would eventually send him on combat tours to Afghanistan. Now at the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) at NASP, Frend,

Thomas Eagles joined a Catholic monastery shortly after he graduated from high school in 1961. The Brothers of Mercy soon sent Eagles to Vietnam, to help care for old and ailing French and Vietnamese priests. But he decided that being an Augustinian monk was not his calling, so he returned to the United States, left the monastery and joined the U.S. Navy as a hospital corpsman recruit. By 1966, Eagles was back in Vietnam, this time as a corpsman assigned to a Marine unit as the war heated up. It was the start of a long and distinguished military career for Eagles, who will be singled out for attention at 6 p.m.

NASP SAPR victim advocate ranks swell past 100 By NASP Fleet and Family Support Center SAPR Team

This year, Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) celebrates its 100th anniversary, and as of May 2014, it can also celebrate having more than 100 D-SAACP (Department of Defense Sexual Assault Advocate Certification Program) certified Victim Advocates (VAs). These 100

are a diverse group of males and females, active-duty and Department of Defense civilians, enlisted and officers, Navy and other branches, married and unmarried, young and not quite as young. Despite their differences, one common characteristic is found in each and every advocate who serves: all are committed to providing the highest level of care for victims of sexual assault, both at NASP and at future duty stations. “I am encouraged by

the number of victim advocates that have been certified by Navy standards to meet the challenges we face in today’s Navy,” said NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Keith W. Hoskins. “I am incredibly proud of our certified and vetted victim advocates that provide a vital service to service members that have been subjected to a sexual assault.” SAPR VAs are the “boots on the ground” for

One last flight: Remembering the T-39 Sabreliner By Lt. Isaac Merriman VT-4 PAO

Training Air Wing Six (TraWing-6) executed a historic “sundown” mission recently, launching four T-39 Sabreliners for a final group photo and tribute flight to the venerable Sabreliner. As the Gulf of Mexico sun crept up over the horizon, there was anticipation on the flight line at the “Cradle of Naval Aviation.” Aircrew arrived at their jets to find the flight line full of up and ready Sabreliners. Aircraft No. 12, now spotted as the spare aircraft, marked the completion of the flight line readiness. With the line now in Sabre configuration, “Eagle” flight led by Commander TraWing-6 Commodore Capt. Willie Billingslea, issued the call to start engines. One by one, the aircraft manned by VT-4, VT-10

and VT-86 commanding officers, came to life. After a smooth launch, Billingslea called for his commanding officers to rendezvous on him for a short practice in the W-155 warning area 40 miles south of NAS Pensacola over the Gulf of Mexico. With the formation refresher complete, the commodore directed the flight to return to base for flyby passes of NAS Pensacola. All aboard NAS Pensacola waited as the Eagle flight lead announced that the Sabreliners were approaching the Naval Air Station for an east-to-west flyby pass. Eyes scanned east towards the hazy Gulf sky searching for the familiar orange-and-white jets. Suddenly, out of the morning sun and haze, the four aircraft appeared, flying in tight diamond formation. With a roar of timeworn but unfaltering engines, the trainers

Prior to this incident, Frend had evacuated seven Marines with varying degrees of injury, and said he remained aware of his training throughout the 12-minute ordeal before the medical evacuation (MedEvac) helicopter arrived. “Once I made it to the roof, I saw the devastation of what the grenade had done,” he said, “and my first thought was that this kid was dead.

trained, applying battlefield medicine to the critically injured Carpenter while relaying information to the incoming helicopter. “He (Carpenter) is a very brave and courageous man,” he said. “When our squad leader was injured, he was the first person on the gun line laying down defense for me when I ran out and retrieved him. When we were on patrol and since I wasn’t part of a fire team, there were times when I was walking ahead of Carpenter and he would always stop me and say ‘Hey doc? Let me go first because if you get hurt, I don’t know what to do to save you but at least if I get hurt, I know that I am in good hands.’ ”

sexual assault response at the installation. Every Monday through Friday and Friday through Monday, two SAPR VAs, a primary and an alternate, concurrently stand the NASP 24/7/365 SAPR watch bill. They stand ready to answer the phone anytime of the day or night to provide vital advocacy services for victims of sexual assault. Although the role of a victim advocate is a volunteer one, it is a professional role. The D-SAACP program creates a uniform certification structure and ensures that all advocates are adequately trained to provide the highest standard of service to victims of sexual assault. While serving on the SAPR Watch Bill, advocates serve as the first point of contact for victims and can provide a range of services. These services include explaining reporting options, accompanying victims to sexual assault forensic exams, informing them about the resources available to them (medical, counseling, victims’ legal counsel, etc.), providing emotional support, and essentially serving as an anchor for victims. “When people think of victim advocates, they typically envision someone waiting in a lobby of an emergency room or sitting in a courtroom holding a victim's hand,” Kathleen Doherty, director of the Fleet and Family Support Center, said. “While advocates can and do serve these roles, I believe that their purpose and value goes beyond these directly supportive activities. In committing to all of the work to become a VA, our active-duty and civilian men and women are showing through their actions that sexual assault is not OK and that being able to respond capably to sexual assault is worth their time and energy. An advocate may carry an ‘on call’ phone only once a month, but each time his or her name is listed or he or she is introduced in a meeting as an advocate, it affirms that there is always someone

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

This aircraft has been the backbone of the Navy’s Training Command for more than 50 years, producing 12,000 naval flight officers. The venerable trainer has been the most versatile multi-seat aircraft utilized in the Undergraduate Military Flight Officer training program. For 30 years the “Gray Eagles” organization has flown as contract pilots for TraWing-6 and currently flies the T-39N Sabreliner based at NASP. These contract pilots currently work for L-3/Vertex Aerospace. This was not the last time these airplanes would fly in a Navy squadron. The Warbucks of VT-4 will continue fly and put the T-39 through its paces until September. On Sept. 3, the last remaining T-39 will depart Pensacola to be preserved at Davis-Monthan AFB in the dry, arid climate of Arizona.

Frend added that the unique bond created between corpsmen and Marines has spanned decades, but never thought he would find himself in a situation of which most can only read about. “When we were over there none of us ever imagined a situation like this would happen to us, that a Marine sitting next to us would have been receiving the Medal of Honor,” he said. “But I wouldn’t put it past any of the Marines who I served with that they would do the same thing as Carpenter did in the same situation. I’m just proud and honored to say that I was there to help. Seeing this firsthand, it changed my life to see what one person would do for another in a time of need.”

available to help.” The role of a VA is a critical one, and the path to becoming a D-SAACP certified VA involves several steps. The process begins with being approved as a candidate by the commanding officer. Once the command completes the requisite background checks and approves the candidate, the next step is submission of a volunteer questionnaire and registration packet, followed by a personal interview with one of the installation SARCs. Eligible candidates then complete the initial 40 hour SAPR victim advocate training and receive a certificate of completion. After completion of training, candidates are evaluated and both their work supervisor and a SARC must sign off before the application is submitted to the National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA). Applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis and no one can serve as a SAPR victim advocate until they have received written approval from NOVA. After this initial certification process, victim advocates must complete 32 hours of Advanced Victim Advocate training every 24 months to maintain their certification, and are required to attend monthly meetings. NASP’s SH2 Andrew J. Hanson, who became the 100th D-SAACP certified victim advocate to be added to the roster, said, “I was surprised by the amount of knowledge needed to provide good care to victims of sexual assault.” He also came away from his training with a greater understanding of how sexual assault does not discriminate and can happen to anyone. SAPR VA trainings are offered quarterly, and the next class is scheduled for Aug. 4-8. Anyone who is interested in becoming a D-SAACP certified SAPR VA should contact their command SAPR POC or one of the SARCs: Lillie Johnson, 452-5109, lillie.o.johnson@navy.mil or Anne Ballensinger, 452-9017, anne.ballensinger@ navy.mil, for more information.

21st Century Sailor Office makes progress in first year By Rear Adm. Sean Buck Director, 21st Century Sailor Office


t has been approximately one year since we stood up the Navy’s 21st Century Sailor Office. Bringing the various program together under one umbrella has streamlined the process for establishing policies to better take care of our Sailors and their families and to build their resilience. We recognize that a lot of the issues we have in the Navy stem from interrelated destructive behaviors. Sharing information and prevention strategies under the purview of one office has made it easier to tackle each challenge and work towards eliminating destructive behaviors from our Navy. I’d like to review the programs and inform you of the progress we’ve made over the past year and what is planned for this upcoming year. • Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR): We have focused on responding to and preventing sexual assault, ensuring we’re training everyone to recognize what it is, how to prevent it, care for victims and hold offenders accountable. The expansion of a response system and awareness and training efforts show progress through an increase of reports, a result of the

How to submit a commentary

improved trust our Sailors have in command structures that reports will be taken seriously. This year, we’re zeroing in on bystander intervention, which can help prevent any number of destructive behaviors and decisions. Starting in August, we’ll be providing a new skills-based bystander intervention training curriculum, to better enable all of us to effectively and safely intervene when needed. • Sexual harassment prevention: Many times, sexual assault stems from sexual harassment and we’re just as committed to eliminating incidents of sexual harassment from our ranks and workplace by creating an appropriate culture and upholding the Navy’s core values. • Suicide prevention: Suicide prevention is an all hands effort, all the time. In 2013, the number of suicides decreased by more than 26 percent. We’re not

claiming victory, but we’re moving in the right direction. After a spike in suicides in the medical community, BuMed and our office led a review of suicides from 2011 and 2012. Navy medicine began an initiative called “Every Sailor, Every Day” which emphasizes leadership contact for every command member. We’re incorporating this initiative Navywide. Last year, the Suicide Prevention Office introduced the “NavyTHRIVE” concept that addresses the stressors and challenges commonly associated with Navy life to encourage Sailors, families and civilians to empower themselves by taking personal responsibility for their health and wellness. Another initiative has been the operational stress control training that deploying units must receive within six months of deployment.

• Hazing prevention: Commanders are taking hazing seriously. Hazing reporting has increased over the last year since the office was established in February 2013. Since the establishment of N174, increased reporting and substantiated incidents shows awareness has increased amongst commanders and their Sailors. We’re working to incorporate signature behaviors into existing training to assist in the prevention of destructive behaviors in the fleet. The office is developing an OpNav instruction to further clarify and provide guidance on hazing and bullying. Navy Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention (NADAP): Navy has zero tolerance for drug use, including the use of designer and synthetic chemical compounds, such as Spice. In December 2013, we added testing for synthetic marijuana to the drug panel. Since then, we’ve seen a very limited number of positive tests for Spice. NADAP introduced the “Keep What You’ve Earned” campaign in 2013 which encourages responsible drinking among Sailors. Physical Readiness Program and Nutrition Program: The 21st Century Sailor Office is about total Sailor fitness. The physical readiness program provides the training for command

fitness leaders and gives guidance on the physical fitness assessment. We’re working on a new algorithm for the physical readiness test elliptical and bike portions. Currently, that portion is easy to pass, but it is difficult to score an outstanding. We’re looking to make the algorithm fairer in that respect. The Nutrition Office promotes nutritional awareness so Sailors can make healthy food choices. Recently, the program teamed up with the DoD Combat Feeding Research and Development Center and the Culinary Institute of America to improve and create 50 new recipes and replace some of the decades-old Armed Forces Recipe Service Cards. Expect to see some new food choices in the mess lines. Family Readiness Program: This program enhances Sailor readiness and family preparedness by supporting the Sailor and their family. Our programs, policies and services continue to evolve to meet the needs of our Sailors and their families. Keep a look out for these programs and initiatives from the 21st Century Sailor Office.

NEXCOM gives $51.9 million to MWR By Kristine M. Sturkie Navy Exchange Service Command Public Affairs

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) – The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) announced June 18 that its fiscal year 2013 audited financial report showed a $51.9 million contribution to Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR). “In addition to providing our customers with quality goods and services at a savings, NEXCOM’s mission is also to support Navy quality of life programs by contributing 70 percent of our profits each year,” said retired Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi, chief executive officer, NEXCOM. “This year, we gave Navy MWR $51.9 million from our 2013 sales. So, in addition to saving our customers money when they shop at the NEX, the money they spend also ultimately supports their own quality of life.” Navy MWR uses the dividends from the NEX in a variety of ways. Installations receive part of the funds for specific installation level MWR efforts. The remaining funds are used for MWR capital projects to improve facilities. “Navy MWR provides world-class programs for Sailors as well as all other service members and their family members, whether stationed ashore or deployed ... These Sailorgenerated dollars allow us to build and operate outstanding recreation facilities throughout the Navy and thereby enhance the common thread of ‘Service to the Fleet’ from MWR in partnership with NEX,” said Edward J. Cannon, director, Commander, Navy Installations Command, Fleet and Family Readiness. NEXCOM operates on the retail fiscal year calendar, which in 2013 was Feb. 2, 2013-Feb. 1, 2014.

Navy Fitness announces three new workout series and apps By Commander, Navy Installations Command Public Affairs


ASHINGTON (NNS) – Commander, Navy Installations Command’s Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System (NOFFS) program launched three new workout series apps for smart phones or tablets June 20. These high-intensity programs – the Strength, Endurance and Sandbag series – provide Sailors with a “best-in-class” physical fitness and nutrition program. NOFFS was developed by the Navy in partnership with EXOS (formerly Athlete’s Performance Institute). The Operational Series provides the foundational exercises that are designed to replicate the activities Sailors conduct in their operational duties: lifting, pushing, pulling and carrying. Each additional series (Strength, Endurance and Sandbag) was developed to provide training modes that address the special interests of users. “The Strength Series will assist Sailors with developing the strength that is needed to perform at their highest level,” said Nick Aures, performance enhancement dietitian, Commander, Navy Installations Command. “There are three training phases within the series that are intended to progressively build total work capacity and improve cardiovascular fitness.” The first phase, Build Muscle, is focused on building lean muscle mass and improving the body’s capacity to handle greater physical demands through a higher volume of work. The second phase, Get Strong, focuses on building strength through fewer repetitions and higher intensity.

The final phase, Get Powerful, harnesses the user’s newfound strength and trains their muscles to be fast and forceful. “The workouts in the Endurance Series are designed to assist with breaking through training plateaus, while decreasing injuries often associated with traditional endurance training,” added Aures. “The workouts can be accomplished in a number of ways, including running, biking, rowing, or using any cardiovascular machine.” Beyond the cardiovas-

cular training in this series, additional training components that are vital to sustained success with endurance activities have been incorporated. These include pillar prep, strength maintenance, soft tissue release, and plyometrics. Although these components can be completed in separate workouts, together they will provide the tools necessary to maximize results. The six phases of cardiovascular training progressively develop both the aerobic and anaerobic energy systems, effectively enhancing your ability to

NASP played an important role in the development of NOFFS. Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) initiated and lead the NOFFS product development project, working collaboratively with Athletes’ Performance Institute (now EXOS).

cover a greater distance at a faster pace. The ability to customize these workouts based on heart rate and/or rate of perceived exertion (RPE) will make the workouts challenging and effective throughout the phases. “The Sandbag Series provides Sailors with a training plan that can be performed in environments with limited equipment options. It will help them develop the strength and power they need to meet the performance demands placed upon them in any environment,” said Aures. “The added challenge of performing traditional exercises with a less stable mass (a sand-filled bag) provides a unique training experience that mimics the demands experienced in day-to-day life.” The Sandbag Series also progresses through three phases of training by building upon the work completed in the previous phase and preparing for what’s to come. The first phase, Build Your Base, establishes a strong base fitness level. The second phase, Gain Muscle, develops lean

muscle mass and increases workout capacity through the use of a higher number of sets and repetitions. In the third phase, Get Powerful, movements will become more explosive, therefore developing the power necessary for immediate bursts of energy often required in operational environments. “Two additional elements that are available in each series include the fueling aspect and the regeneration component,” explained Aures. The fueling aspect of NOFFS will allow Sailors to determine their total caloric needs to achieve personal goals, while the meal builder enables them to select high-octane foods for each meal, populate their meal plan a week at a time and e-mail it to themselves. The regeneration component will assist Sailors with addressing common aches and pains. The soft tissue release techniques combined with the flexibility routine will help restore muscular balance, and ensure that Sailors develop and maintain the mobility necessary for high-level performance. Interactive apps for each series are available at no cost for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad or iPod), with an app for Android devices being released shortly. The apps provide guidance and examples of each exercise, along with scrolling pictures and videos that can be viewed with a quick swipe. Search for “NOFFS” in the App Store or on the Google Play Store app. For more information about NOFFS, fitness, nutrition, movement of the day, and other great resources, visit the Navy Fitness website at: www. navyfitness.org.

Balfour Beatty: Energy conservation starts at home From Allison Zborowski Communications coordinator Balfour Beatty Investments


sing energy wisely at home is an important way for all of us to control our electric costs and reduce our environmental impact – a win-win. Lowering your energy use puts more money back in your pocket and reduces the harmful emissions released into our environment in the energy generation process. You don’t have to overhaul your home or make a major investment to reduce energy consumption. There are many easy, effective things you and your family can do to save energy at home. Here’s a list of tips and ideas from Balfour Beatty Communities to get you started. Home appliance tips: • Opt for short showers over baths. Reducing the amount of hot water you use, and the energy used to heat it, is a cost effective way to lower your energy bills as well as help the environment. • Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes. • Wash clothes in cold water.

Leibig named CNATRA’s Flight Surgeon of the Year By Ens. Lindsay Grover NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs


Training Air Wing Five (TraWing-5) physician was recognized as the top flight surgeon for Naval Air Training Command (NATraCom) for his professional performance supporting the mission of training naval aviators. The annual award recognizes flight surgeons’ support of and dedication to flight instructors and flight students within NATraCom during the previous calendar year. Navy Capt. James J. Fisher, commodore, TraWing-5, presented the award to Lt. Cmdr. Jonathan Leibig June 12 at a ceremony in the TraWing-5 headquarters building. Fisher described Leibig in the award submission package as “an unselfish professional … who personally assumed additional responsibilities of a second training squadron’s personnel. (Leibig is) a brilliant manager (balancing) his daily workload of full clinic patient loads, medical officer of the day watch and medical department head administrative roles while finding time to personally visit

with squadron members.” Leibig ensured a greater than 95 percent medical readiness standing and logged more than 2,450 patient encounters across the TraWing-5 units. As medical student coordinator, Leibig also provided academic and clinical mentoring to six medical students and seven intern physicians resulting in 50 percent of the medical students accepting positions in the flight surgeon training program at the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute. Leibig was quick to share the recognition with his fellow flight surgeons that helped bear the responsibility of the increased workload. At one time, each squadron was assigned its own flight surgeon. Now, however, three flight surgeons are responsible for the six squadrons that comprise TraWing-5, increasing

overall responsibility significantly. “I am honored to have been recognized. This award is extremely rewarding especially when considering the effort necessary to accomplish our goals. The other flight surgeons here at TraWing-5 are equally deserving of this award and have been instrumental in covering the shortages and keeping up with the challenging demands of flight instructors and students,

ensuring that these individuals are able to fly safely with minimal training delays.” During the 2013 calendar year, Leibig was responsible for two squadrons totaling 120 flight instructors, and 350 students. He completed 20 flights with a total of 58.8 flight hours and submitted 17 medical waivers. Leibig provided health and safety lectures to more than 500 personnel, contributing to the

safety mission of TraWing-5. He is also an active member of the local community, helping to raise $5,000 through organized charity fitness events in the Pensacola region and promoting health and fitness awareness to the general public. Leibig attributes his success to the guidance and leadership of senior flight surgeons Lt. Paul VonHerrmann and Capt. Robert Reuer. VonHerrmann helped to establish a strong foundation early on for Leibig when he first checked into TraWing-5, while Reuer provided the insight and encouragement necessary to become a successful flight surgeon. Serving as the senior flight surgeon also provided opportunities in which to gain leadership experience and broaden Leibig’s overall knowledge of the requirements necessary to safely achieve mission success. “His unselfish work ethic and positive leadership epitomized the motivated teamwork required during the yearlong flight surgeon shortage at TraWing-5,” Fisher continued. Leibig recently transferred to Naval Air Station Pensacola, where he will continue his naval career training in the residency in aerospace medicine.

NASWF welcomes new ombudsman By Jay Cope NASWF PAO

After more than two years serving as the vital link between the command and the familes who make up the extended military community, Daisy Johnson has stepped down as the Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) ombudsman. Following in her footsteps will be Vanessa Wiederhoeft, who accepted the appointment from NASWF Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin. Ombudsmen are volunteers who help disseminate information both up and down the chain of command on topics ranging from official Department of the Navy and command information, command climate issues, local quality of life (QOL) improvement opportunities and “good deals” around the community. The term originates from a Scandinavian

political position for a person responsible for safeguarding citizen rights. For more than 40 years, ombudsmen have been the voice of Navy families to the top layers of the chain of command. Wiederhoeft comes to NAS Whiting Field with a wealth of experience. She has been an ombudsman two other times

with Coast Riverine Group One Detachment Guam and as the Naval Base Guam ombudsman and assembly chair. It is a labor she is passionate about, as she was raised in a military family and saw the importance of the link between families and the command office, and how a good working relationship can help improve command morale. “There are a lot of moments that make you want to keep doing (the ombudsman job). It doesn’t matter how important the matter is; one spouse needing help and you (being) able to help them makes it worthwhile,” Wiederhoeft said. Johnson’s resignation coincided with her husband’s transfer to an individual augmentee tour. While he is deployed, she and their daughter are staying in the local area to enjoy the support community which she helped maintain. “I am really going to miss the people

I work with,” Johnson said. “We have a great chain of command here, and I am glad I can still be involved in the Whiting community.” The ombudsmen both stressed the importance of accessibility to the families as a vital trait for the position. To help provide extra outlets of information, the two ombudsmen established a Facebook page – www.facebook.com/ NASWFOmbudsman. Wiederhoeft also may be reached via e-mail at naswfombudsman@gmail.com or by phone at (850) 293-3535. “We have been fortunate to have Daisy with us for the last two years. She has been a tremendous asset to the command and has brought a wealth of energy and enthusiasm to the job,” Coughlin stated. “But I am also sure that Vanessa will put her own stamp on the position and serve the NAS Whiting Field team equally well.”

Summer’s hot temperatures emphasize importance of heat index and physical exercise

BLUE: Less than 80 degrees

From Naval Safety Center

NORFOLK,Va. – With hot temperatures for this time of year, it is important to understand the Navy Heat Index and the Physical Exercise Chart. The Wet-Bulb Globe Temperature Index (WBGTI) takes into account four variables: air temperature, humidity, radiant heat and air movement. This reading gives a more accurate measurement of heat stress than any one reading alone. Heat related illnesses include: heat rash, cramps, exhaustion and stroke. These illnesses are a real danger to people not accustomed to the stress of hot weather exercise. Heat Index and Physical Exercise Chart (NavMed P-5010 CH 9) • Less than 80 degrees: Blue/white – Extremely intense physical exertion may precipitate heat exhaustion or heat stroke, therefore, caution must be taken. • 80-84.9 degrees: Green – Discretion is required in planning heavy exercise for unacclimatized personnel. This is a marginal heat stress limit for all personnel. • 85-87.9 degrees: Yellow (Amber) – Strenuous exercise and activity must be curtailed for new and unacclimatized personnel during the first three weeks of heat exposure. Outdoor classes in the sun must be avoided when the WBGT Index exceeds 85. • 88-89.9 degrees: Red – Strenuous exercise must be curtailed for all personnel with less than 12 weeks training in hot weather. • 90 degrees or above: Black – Physical training and strenuous exercise must be suspended for all personnel. (Excludes opera-

YELLOW: 85-87.9 degrees

• Working or exercising in hot weather will result in extra fluid loss, leading to dehydration. • Dehydration contributes to fatigue and may make you more susceptible to cramps, heat stress and heat stroke. • Drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids several hours prior to exercise and drink cool water often during physical activity. If you’ll be participating in the activity for more than one hour, replenish with a sports drink, which has a 5-10 percent concentration of carbohydrates in addition to a small amount of sodium. • Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water. Thirst is a late signal of severe fluid loss. Symptoms of dehydration include muscle cramps, decreased blood pressure and dizziness. Even small degrees of dehydration will cause a decrease in performance, and this can occur at any stage of competition. • Navy installations use green, yellow, red and black flags to alert all onboard their installation to hazardous heat conditions as determined by Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT). Commanding officers of installations are responsible for ensuring commands recognize the need to limit or curtail physical training and strenuous exercise during red- and black-flag conditions.

tional commitment not for training purposes). Wearing body armor or NBC protective uniforms adds approximately 10 points to the measured WBGTI. Limits of exposure should be adjusted accordingly. Onboard NAS Pensacola, WBGTI measurements are taken and logged by the command headquarters (Bldg. 1500) quarterdeck personnel. These temperature conditions are communicated to tenant commands and are re-

Measurements are taken every hour. Whenever the flag changes, quarterdeck personnel call NASP’s tenant commands and let them know the flag conditions have changed. Additionally, when black flag conditions are logged, it is announced via the base’s loundspeaker system, “giant voice.”

Key messages • Heat stress is best avoided by taking precautions before you begin your outdoor activities. • Avoid physically exerting yourself or exercising during the hottest hours of the day, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. • Alcohol will not replenish your fluids. It will further dehydrate you and should be avoided while participating in summer sports or outdoor activities.

Morale, Welfare and Recreation

From Pensacola Big Game Fishing Club

Anglers from across the Southeast are preparing to compete in the 43rd annual Pensacola International Billfish Tournament from July 2 to July 6. This year, the captain’s meeting will be July 2 at Seville Quarter. Boats/teams will be able to register to compete at the captain’s meeting and the competing teams can sleep in a bit Thursday morning, load the boat and head out to fish Thursday afternoon to begin fishing “lines in” at 12:01 a.m. July 4. The tournament presented by The Pensacola Big Game Fishing Club has been an annual tradition since 1970, and spectators are welcome to come down to Plaza de Luna at the southern end of Palafox Street to watch the boats unload and weigh in their catches, according to Victor Wallace, this year’s tournament director. “Anglers will be competing for prizes and cash awards fishing for blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, swordfish, yellowfin tuna, dolphin and wahoo,” Wallace said. This year promises to be one of the most competitive, Wallace said, because the club is continuing a $50,000 cash award for the first billfish “grand slam” – three of the designated species caught by one angler in one day. Last year, Gary Sluder, on the boat “Tailwalker” almost qualified for the $50,000 grand slam

award. Scales are scheduled to be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 4 and 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 5. Boats must be in line at the marina at 9 p.m. to weigh their fish. For spectators, there will be music and educational material and presentations. Food, ice cream and Pensacola Big Game Fishing Club official merchandise will be on sale, and there will be face painting for chil-

dren. As an added bonus, you can watch the sun set on Pensacola Bay and a fireworks display as the boats come in to weigh their catch. The tournament is a qualifying event for the World Billfish Series, and the winner receives an invitation to fish the Offshore World Championship and is a sanctioned qualifier for the InTheBite Captain of the Year Cup.
