NASP officials hold meeting on Navy RIF From CNIC

At a town hall-style meeting held onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola July 1, base officials discussed with civilian employees the effects that a Navy reduction in force (RIF) may have onboard NASP when it takes place later this year. “I wanted to take the opportunity to address our employees and get as much information out as early as possible,” NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins said. “Our country is going through a very financially tumultuous time and a reduction in force is the absolutely last resort. A RIF is a very com-

plex process. We’re just not arbitrarily coming up with numbers and billets. We’re trying to make this process as fair as possible. And it is not a local choice; these decisions come from much higher up.” Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) announced recently a plan to conduct a RIF action in fiscal year

2013 that will be completed in 2014. During the course of the next seven months, CNIC will eliminate 745 civilian positions throughout its shore enterprise in seven Navy regions across 20 states, the District of Columbia, the island of Guam, and in the countries of Italy, Greece and Cuba, officials said. The actual total number of people directly impacted by this RIF action will be determined once other workforce shaping measures such as voluntary separation incentive payments, voluntary early retirement authority and placement into current vacancies have been completed. CNIC, along with other Navy commands, has experienced reduced budgets and must implement cost-saving measures across the entire force. “This action is not taken lightly, but is part of a conscious, risk-based approach to future shore capabilities that are aligned with the Navy mission,” said Vice. Adm. William French, CNIC. “I am committed to ensuring that we do all we can to assist those people directly impacted by this action by providing them access to all tools available under reduction in force rules and assisting them with finding future employment.” Career transition services for the employees affected by the RIF action will vary depending on their needs, but services available will include skills assessment, resume and cover letter preparation, networking and interviewing techniques, counseling, job search assistance and retraining, if necessary. Reducing these positions may have

Focusing on putting an end to sexual assault in all forms, military and civilian staff members from the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) held a Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) standdown June 27. NETC Commander Rear Adm. Don Quinn stressed that the intent of this standdown was to ensure service members and civilian personnel clearly understand they are accountable for fostering a positive climate where sexist behaviors, harassment, and assault are not tolerated, condoned, or ignored. “The secretary of the Navy and

Chief of Naval Operations have asked us to re-focus on sexual assault prevention and response and reinforce our core values,” said Quinn. “That includes zero tolerance for sexual assault and sexual harassment. We leverage morale and esprit de corps in our units to do what others cannot. That’s how we can go into places like New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and bring order out of chaos – because everyone in the unit knows their shipmates have their back. Sexual assault destroys that trust and damages our mission effectiveness, in addition to the personal damage done to those involved.” Mike Stahl, SAPR program manager for NETC coordinated the

NORFOLK (NNS) – Gold Star Family (GSF) designated parking signs were recently placed outside high traffic facilities aboard Naval Station Norfolk (NAVSTA). They have also been installed onboard NAS Pensacola at the Pensacola Navy Exchange (NEX) Mall, Pensacola Commissary, Fleet and Family Support Center and Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP). GSF are families of those who died serving in the U.S. armed forces and identified by a gold star lapel button. The gold star lapel button or gold star pin is distributed according to strict Department of Defense guidelines for service members who have lost their lives in

conflict or in support of certain military operations. By law, a gold star lapel button was to be furnished without cost, to the widow and to each of the parents and the next of kin of the fallen warrior. In effort to support, a Commander Navy Installations Command (CNIC) directive was released to provide guidance in implementing designated parking spaces and signage. The intent of the directive is to honor and recognize the sacrifice of family members who have lost a loved one in military service, to educate the Navy community, and to bring awareness to the general public. As part of the initiative, NAVSTA personnel posted signs on designated parking spaces on and off base. The

NATTC Sailors sworn in as American citizens By Lt. Jonathan Bacon and AMSC Richard Keillor NATTC Public Affairs

Freedom isnʼt free ... Assistant Country Program Manager Naomi Holliday, a civil service employee at Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA), adjusts a yellow ribbon on the Freedom Tree at Naval Education and Training Command (NETC). The tree is covered in American flags and yellow ribbons bearing the names of family members of staff who are current or previous members of the U.S. armed services. NETC, NETSAFA and Naval Service Training Command’s (NSTC) Officer Development and Citizenship Development are all located in Bldg. 628 onboard NAS Pensacola. The commands’ joint welfare and recreation committee came up with the idea of the Freedom Tree as a reminder of the cost of freedom and to honor those who serve the nation now, as well as those who served in the past.

CNIC workforce shaping, by means of this RIF, needs to occur in this fiscal year due to budget constraints. CNIC has taken cuts and forced efficiencies in other areas, such as travel, training, equipment and maintenance.

We must get to the left of this problem and stay ahead of it – as our common goal. The only way to do that is to focus on character and core values from the first day in the Navy and to continue focusing on competency with character every day thereafter. With this effort, we can stamp out sexual assaults and harassment in our Navy.” Get more information and resources to combat sexual assault at http://www. sapr.navy.mil.

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.

Students assigned to Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) became United States citizens during a naturalization ceremony at Pensacola’s federal courthouse June 26. During the brief ceremony, 24 Sailors swore their allegiance to America. A significant difference from many citizenship ceremonies that take place throughout the United States is that the new American citizens had already sworn allegiance to the United States and protect its freedom when they became United States Navy Sailors. “Being an American citizen is not a prerequisite to join the American armed forces, but service in the American armed forces is a path to citizenship,” said Capt. Jim Daniels, NATTC’s commanding officer. “For these Sailors, their path to citizenship brought them from many different parts of the world and walks of life, but it culminated in their decision to join the United States Navy and become American citizens.” Several of the students expressed excitement and jubilation after the ceremony.

AN Jeorzamae Ang, originally from the Philippines and training to become an aviation machinist’s mate felt very proud and accomplished becoming a citizen. “The first thing I’m going to do is tell my mom and dad,” Ang said. AN Samuel Lee, originally from the United Kingdom, who is training to become an aviation boatswain’s mate (equipment), felt very relieved. “Now that I’m a citizen, I’m going to work to accomplish my goal of becoming a Navy diver,” he said. Afterward the students returned to the training center to continue with the training that is preparing them for the Navy’s needs in the fleet. For more than 70 years, NATTC has been delivering training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy and Marine students annually. The majority of the student body is comprised of enlisted personnel attending “A” schools, where they are gaining the knowledge and skills required to perform in fleet as technicians at the apprentice level.

Public Service Announcement (PSA). The PSA contest was part of the Navy’s observance of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month observance in April. The goal of the contest was to promote awareness of SAPR in the Navy, encouraging bystander intervention among viewers and advocating victim assistance and support. The winning PSAs were, “Read the Signs” from Commander, Third Fleet CSADD; “Everybody’s Hero” from USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) Media Team and “Be a Shipmate” from Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) CSADD Pensacola. The NATTC CSADD mentor, AC1(AW/SW) David Lee commented that his students enjoyed their involvement with the project. “Being announced as one of the winners was very gratifying for our CSADD team,” said Lee. “The contest and videos helped spark interest in SAPR – anything we can do to get the message out to the fleet is time well spent and we all had fun being a part of it.” Parking from page 1

placement of parking signs was spearheaded by Gary Evans, NAVSTA special operations department head.

Military families learn how to keep the right stuff By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I’ve been told that my family of five weighs more than 15,000 pounds. No, we are not morbidly obese – that figure is actually the total weight of all of our stuff. Everything from the half-chewed pencil in the desk drawer to the 1978 Baldwin upright piano, and all the socks, cookie sheets, end tables and dog toys in between. As a military family, we have to move every few years. Each time, a team of movers wraps all our stuff in paper, packs it into boxes, nails it into crates, weighs it and delivers it to our next temporary home. Prior to every move, we take a few weeks to sort through our 15,000 pounds of stuff and “purge” unnecessary items like old clothes, outgrown toys, and beat up furniture. Getting rid of things has always been difficult for me. As a child, I used to squirrel everything away – toys, coins, rocks, shells, candy, notes, photos, etc. – and I am still doing it to this day. I can attach practical or sentimental value to almost anything to make it worth keeping. Sixteen years ago we were about to move from England to Virginia, and were sorting through our stuff in preparation to be packed. My husband was going through all the little drawers in his big roll top

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 20 years (and running). Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeatanpotatosoflife.com. She and her family are in the process of transfering from Jacksonville, Fla., to Newport, R.I. desk, and came upon a small white plastic clamp holding a hard brownish object. “What the heck is this?” he asked, holding the clamp up to the light. “Oh, that’s Hayden’s umbil-

ical cord.” I said, briefly looking up from a file box of bank statements. “His umbilical cord?!” he said, astonished, tossing the dehydrated fragment back into the drawer. “That looks like something you’d find in a bowl of Chex Mix … what if I had accidentally eaten it? I’m throwing it away.” “WAIT!” I shouted, lunging for the dried up chunk of sinew. I held the plastic clamp and gazed at the petrified remnants of the bridge of flesh that once connected my son and me. I thought of the life-giving nourishment that flowed through the cord and how it symbolized my undying love for my son. Just then, my husband interrupted my reverie, “Hon, you’re not going to keep that thing are you? It’s like a dried up piece of raw chicken!” As I reluctantly threw it into the trash, I wondered if discarding our original physical bond might adversely affect the emotional tie between my son and me. Crazy, I know. That is the insane thought process I go through every time we move. I could give in to my hoarding tendencies and tell myself that every scrap of paper and old shoe is indispensable, because it is useful or holds some dear memory. But then, the U.S. military would fine us for going over the allowable

weight limit for a family of five. Thanks to Uncle Sam, I am not a hoarder, but I still battle my propensity to be a pack rat every time we move. This time, I hesitated over a restaurant matchbook from a night when the children didn’t embarrass us. I had a lot of trouble parting with my 1980s Bermuda bag and its buttoned covers, still convinced that wooden handled purses will come back into style. And I couldn’t get myself to part with the tin drum that my son used to beat when we went Christmas caroling with the neighbors. With each move, I have to remind myself that, although our stuff comforts us and makes us feel at home in unfamiliar places, the 15,000 pounds of stuff that follows us around the world does not make us who we are.

It is merely stuff, without which, we still have a hefty family life, weighty with memories, loaded with laughter, and laden with tons of love.

Keel-laying ceremony held for eighth LCS From Naval Sea Systems Command Office of Corporate Communication

M

OBILE, Ala. (NNS) – The Navy and Austal USA held a keel-laying ceremony for the future USS Montgomery (LCS 8), the Navy’s eighth littoral combat ship (LCS), June 25 in Mobile Ala. The keel-laying ceremony recognizes the first joining together of a ship’s components. While modern shipbuilding processes allow fabrication of individual modules to begin months earlier, keel laying represents the formal beginning of a ship. Ship sponsor Mary Sessions, wife of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, authenticated the keel by having her initials welded into a sheet of the ship’s hull. The LCS is a new breed of U.S. Navy warship, capable of openocean operation but optimized for littoral, or coastal, missions. Montgomery is one of four Independence-variant LCS currently under con-

struction at Austal USA. The ship is expected to be delivered to the fleet in 2016. “This class of ships breaks new ground in Navy acquisition, ship design and warfighting technology,” said Capt. Stephen Mitchell, supervisor of Shipbuilding, Gulf Coast. “I am im- Secretary of the Navy (SecNav) Ray Mabus and Todd Strange, mayor of Montgomery, Ala., left, celebrate the pressed by their strength, naming of the eighth littoral combat ship, the USS Montgomery (LCS 8), Oct. 4, 2011 during a ceremony in flexibility and extraordi- Ackerman, Miss.

Unmanned underwater vehicle deployed to Fifth Fleet From Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division Public Affairs PANAMA CITY, Fla. (NNS) – The U.S. Navy has deployed the MK18 Mod 2 Kingfish underwater unmanned vehicle for operations in the Fifth Fleet area of responsibility, following more than 30 sorties in 15 days of mock deployment testing in the Gulf of Mexico, the Navy announced June 20. Kingfish is an autonomous underwater unmanned vehicle (UUV) used by the U.S. Navy for mine detection missions with an improved endurance and area coverage rate that replaces the in-theater Swordfish system. These UUVs are pre-programmed and designed to scan waters for targets or threats while offering sailors faster post-mission analysis using the Navy’s Mine Warfare and Environmental Decision Library (MEDAL) and Command Operations Interference Navy (COIN) systems. Test lead Amanda Mackintosh said the mock deployment began May 6 and was conducted in areas more than 20 nautical miles from the Panama City Beach shoreline, launching

UUVs from an 11-meter rigid hull inflatable boat which is how the system will be used in theater. “Missions went very smoothly. The mock deployment was conducted in realistic environments and where there was greater risk reduction for deployment,” she said. “We didn’t experience any vehicle failures and we ran three and sometimes four vehicles for eight hours per day for the 15 days.” NSWC Panama City’s geographic location offers scientists and fleet users distinct training, testing and evaluation opportunities as the gulf waters replicate Persian Gulf temperatures, salinity, depth and clarity as they pertain to sonar performance and thereby offer intended, realworld environment results. NSWC PCD, a field activity of the Naval Sea Systems Command, employs more than 1,300 people and provides innovative, technical solutions to complex problems specifically in the areas of littoral and expeditionary warfare.

NASP children in disaster preparedness workshop From Carissa Bergosh NASP School Liaison Officer

As all Gulf Coast residents know, hurricane season began June 1. To help promote a proactive culture of preparedness for hurricanes and any other emergency, a “Youth Disaster Preparedness Workshop” took place June 21 aboard NAS Pensacola. More than 40 youths from the NASP Youth Center participated in the workshop, which was hosted by the Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), Child Youth Programs and the American Red Cross. The military young people had the opportunity to participate in four break-out sessions, which included

imaginitive and creative ways to prepare for evacuation in the event of a disaster. When children notice the amount of attention paid to a brewing storm by adults and the media, they can feel anxiety. The purpose of this workshop The American Red Cross’s Doug Watson speaks to NASP children at a table for first was to empower children on how they aid information and kits.

HT-28 ‘wings’ their Soaring Cardinals From Jay Cope NASWF PAO

H

elicopter Training Squadron28 (HT-28) performed a “winging” and promotion ceremony at Bennett C. Russell Elementary to recognize an elite group of fifth grade students. Twenty-six “Soaring Cardinals” were presented accolades in recognition of their academic prowess during the 2012-2013 school year. The program was designed to motivate students to consistently perform well. Each nine-week period, every fifth grade student has the opportunity to become indoctrinated into the Soaring Cardinals. “The Soaring Cardinals are an elite group of fifth-graders,” Carrie Ricksecker, Cardinals liaison explained. “These individuals earned 94.5 percent or better in their academics, displayed excellent behavior, and received a teacher recommendation.” The 19 students who upheld the rigorous GPA over the entire year were promoted to “lieu-

tenant.” Those who entered after the second or third periods received a certificate appointing them to “lieutenant junior grade,” or “ensign,” respectively. The pinning on of a set of miniature golden aviator wings serves as a special incentive to those who maintained their elite status for all three periods. On the morning of May 23, a gathering was held to celebrate these scholars. It kicked off with Soaring Eagle Lt. Carter “Stone Cold” Lees, leading the

“Pledge of Allegiance,” and the “Star Spangled Banner” was sung by the Avalon Singing Ladies. Suzi Godwin, principal, Bennett C. Russell Elementary, then addressed the student body and parents on their accomplishments. “Not only have you (students) soared academically, you’ve learned what it means to be respectful and responsible. You have learned to be good citizens in your classroom and in your community,” Godwin said.

Each “winger” approached the stage by way of a red carpet adorned with three foot-tall wooden and brass-tipped shells. As their name and call sign was announced, a ceremonial Navy bell was ringed announcing the new “lieutenant’s” passage through the mock-up quarterdeck. Ricksecker pinned each individual with a set of “wings of gold” and Cmdr. Christopher Pesile, HT-28 commanding officer, presented their corresponding certificates.

This event marked the culmination of HT-28 dedication to their sponsored school. Throughout the school year, HT28’s representatives, Navy Lt. Adam Shredders and Marine Capt. Andrew Casci, taught several lessons at Bennett C. Russell Elementary and even brought in a helicopter engine for display. They led a tour of Naval Air Station Whiting Field which included a helicopter simulator demonstration, night vision goggle lab and a picnic.

Hurricane season: resources and information From Jay Cope NASWF PAO

Hurricane season brings destructive forces of all kinds, including increased stress levels. Additional safety measures will need to be implemented to ensure the well-being of service members, their families and their pets. Base leadership recognizes that stress-induced “human factors” can severely degrade the mission readiness of its service men and women. Recommended methods of damage control include early planning, preparation, and consultation from the Navy Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC). Jeannine DeCuir is one of the counselors at FFSC standing by to assist with the human element of disaster. She, and

her team of educated professionals, are privy to the enormous amount of stress storms can dump on service members and their families. Command indoctrination is provided to active-duty service members when they report to NAS Whiting Field. If that particular individual is later required to assist with base operations during a natural disaster, however, their family may be left inadequately prepared to respond. “Students are often used to HurrEvac (hurricane evacuation) leaving their families at home alone. The expectation is the service member will be there to help when in reality they are not, which creates stress,” DeCuire said. DeCuir advises that every household should prepare a hurricane kit. This kit

should include a detailed plan of action required to wait out the storm at home and another for evacuation. FFSC offers complimentary “Disaster Preparedness Guides” that list items and quantities advised for the time between the storm’s impact and federal relief (72 hours). DeCuir observed that people frequently underestimate the amount of water, gas, and medications they will consume during periods of power outages and isolation. She suggests stocking up on these materials well in advance. HMCM Lennis McNutt, Naval Branch Health Clinic, is prepared to respond to an increased demand for pharmaceutical refills in the week leading up to a hurricane. “Check your prescriptions and call in

your refills as soon as conditions warrant,” McNutt said. “We will anticipate an influx of refills but it’s helpful to call sooner than later as we’ll reduce our staffing when the storm gets closer … Early awareness, especially with medications, is the key.” Despite great efforts, many will find themselves ill prepared. The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society may be a resource to individuals ordered to evacuate. Additionally, they can grant interest-free loans on a case-by-case basis. All those living in hurricane warning areas are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the American Red Cross and FEMA’s websites for further guidance on preparation and emergency contact information.

July’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 operational commitment not for training purposes).

GREEN: 80-84.9 degrees

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. • Donʼt wait until youʼre 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 installatiuse 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.

BLACK: 90 or above degrees

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-

flected in a series of colored flags which fly at several locations on base, including Bldg. 623, Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC), the NASC track, Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC), the Radford Gym, the NATTC gym and at Saufley Field. 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.”

Dehydration and heat stress equals poor performance

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.

NASP’s Mascarenhas is CNRSE Senior Civilian of the Quarter From Navy Region Southeast PAO

J

ose Mascarenhas, a housing management specialist assigned to Navy N93 Housing, has been named Commander, Navy Region Southeast Senior Civilian of the Quarter (CoQ). With offices in Pensacola and in Jacksonville, Mascarenhas covers special housing projects regionwide. “Jose has provided research and information beyond normal housing functions to N6 and the Information Technology (IT) department,” noted N93 Housing Program Director Rich Dye, Mascarenhas’ supervisor, in his write-up for the nomination. “CNRSE has a requirement to provide authority to operate (ATO) all locking systems throughout CNIC, beginning with the Southeast region, on all barracks. It is a new requirement and requires interaction with N6, N9 and N3 at installation, region, and CNIC as well as various locking system venders.” The ATO process has a cost of more than $1 million per year for the first year and more than $500,000 every following year. “Without Jose’s diligent involvement the ATO process, it would not be accomplished, and jeopardize the occupancy of all barracks rooms,” Dye said. “As the lead, (Mascarenhas) took it upon himself to incorporate future requirements, and existing research and development (R&D) of new locking systems and compatibility to Navy computer requirements. All locking systems work with a computer, using very com-

plicated operating systems, and various programs. Some of the locking systems programs work with Navy computers and some require R&D. Jose has provided the ‘deep dive’ into understanding the requirement and providing a solution.” Navy computers are required to be to a standard (Windows 7) by April of 2014. Mascarenhas provided a “way ahead” to supply the computers currently used by the locking systems and be ready for the April, 2014 deadline. Cost savings to this effort was more than $30,000. Mascarenhas contacted locking system vendors with regards to changing their system to meet Navy requirements. He has supported the required changes and he has been diligent in the pursuit of solutions from various venders. Vendors have agreed to produce a working solution to the ATO process. Mascarenhas was quick to acknowledge the role of the entire housing team. “I certainly feel humbled and greatly honored to think that anyone would consider me for this award,” he said. “I have no doubt that I am not worthy of such tribute. Truly, I am only one member of a great team of professionals that work tirelessly to serve the military commu-

Jose Mascarenhas

nity through the many great aspects of the Navy housing program. “To be acknowledged in this manner is really recognition of the recurring efforts of the housing team at Commander, Navy Region Southeast regional office and installations,” Mascarenhas said. Dye went on to state Mascarenhas has also taken on additional financial duties left behind by two employees, and doing the work of three individuals while taking care of his current responsibilities to provide installations with guidance and support. The additional work Mascarenhas has taken on has saved the Southeast region more than $150,000 per year in salaries alone. “(Mascarenhas) has been working outside his normal duties to support the privatized housing inspection process throughout the western portion of the region. He has accomplished very complicated inspection criteria, of which the results are equated into a monetary award for the managingmember of the public private venture (PPV). (Mascarenhas’) willingness and ability to

adapt to various situations has saved more than $25,000 in travel costs throughout the Southeast region.” According to the nomination, contributions made by Mascarenhas have enhanced the organization’s accomplishment of tasks and responsibilities during a time of hiring freeze, and sequestration. He has provided installations with insight and direction to continue providing a quality of life for residents with limited resources. “Jose regularly mentors installation housing managers. He has taken the lead to help installations with their purchases, budget management, and transitioning to new media and technology platforms. This requires individual communications with 13 installations, and CNIC each contact is tailored to their unique programs and technology skill level,” Dye said. When asked about the factors he thought may have contributed most to his success, Mascarenhas deferred again to his coworkers and leadership. “Truthfully, I can only attribute any measure of success to the blessing of being a part of a superb team,” he said. “I genuinely believe that all I do is the job entrusted to me by my chain of command. My conviction is to give all I can, the proverbial 110 percent in all I do; to help those in the team become the best possible housing professionals; to seek, and urge others, to provide the best support humanly practicable to our program; and to reach out to those other programs we interface with and create synergy in support of our heroes, the military members and their families. “I humbly thank all those involved for the honor and the confidence conferred on me through this award,” he added.

Auto lenders must refund $6.5 million to service members From the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has ordered U.S. Bank and one of its nonbank partner companies, Dealers’ Financial Services (DFS), to end deceptive marketing and lending practices targeting active-duty military. The two companies must return about $6.5 million to service members for failing to properly disclose all the fees charged to participants in the companies’ Military Installment Loans and Educational Services (MILES) auto loans program, and for misrepre-

senting the true cost and coverage of add-on products financed along with the auto loans. “The bureau has a special mission to protect service members,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “We will continue our work to ensure that service members are treated fairly.” U.S. Bank, headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn., and DFS, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., created the MILES program to finance subprime auto loans to activeduty military. While the program has expanded beyond U.S. Bank being its only lender, U.S. Bank is still re-

sponsible for financing the substantial majority of the MILES program loans. The MILES program required service members to repay their auto loans using the military allotment system, which deducts payments directly from a military member’s paycheck before it is deposited. The allotment system was created decades ago to help deployed service members send money home to their families and pay their creditors at a time when automatic bank payments and electronic transfers were not yet common bank services. Today, the allotment system may be vulnerable to mis-

use. When service members pay by allotment, the lenders often require service members to use third-party processors that charge one or more fees. This can cost more in fees than alternatives such as online banking, which are often free. By proactively altering problematic aspects of the MILES program and readily working with the bureau to provide refunds to service members, both companies in this action engaged in the sort of conduct the CFPB expects from companies found to have violated consumer financial laws. This was one of several factors the bureau considered when choosing not to impose

a civil money penalty. The Department of Defense and the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps of each of the service branches assisted the CFPB in this matter. The CFPB and the Department of Defense have been also working closely on issues related to the military discretionary allotment system. The Department of Defense has convened an interagency work group to improve the allotment system in which the CFPB will participate. For more information on military allotments and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, go to www. consumerfinance.gov.

GOSPORT SAPR

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; go to www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247 CONUS; (202) 470-5546 OCONUS (may be additional charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to 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 a victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services and safety interventions such as a Military Protective Order (MPO), separation from offender, expedited transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim can report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), SARC, and his/her CO shall commence an investigation. Restricted reporting allows a confidential report, which does not trigger either command nor law enforcement notification and the victim can have a SAPR VA, and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim can disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care provider and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 VA, call 449-9231/2. To contact the SARC during working hours, call 452-5990, ext. 0; or during and after working hours, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
