Navy announces new Sexual Assault Prevention and Response training From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – As part of the Navy’s continuing efforts to eliminate sexual assaults and promote positive culture changes within the fleet, the Chief of Naval Personnel announced June 28 the creation of new Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) training. For the first time, targeted and comprehensive sexual assault prevention training will be delivered to every active and reserve uniformed member in the Navy. The training follows the Navy’s all-hands efforts for Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, during which all Sailors from commands around the world took part in focused stand-down sessions highlighting varying aspects of sexual assault and each Sailors’ role in eliminating this crime. The training will also complement the Navy’s multi-faceted approach to education and awareness; prevention and intervention; victim advocacy and resiliency; and investigation and accountability. Training programs have been developed for command leadership (SAPR-Leadership) and for the fleet as a whole (SAPR-Fleet). The wide-sweeping reach of this initiative ensures that all Sailors are motivated and able to intervene to stop sexual assault, according to Rear Adm. Martha Herb, director of Personnel Readiness and Community Support. Onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP), Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) Maria Caceres was pleased to hear about the new training initiative. “The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Taskforce is working hard to conduct these much needed changes,” NASP SARC Caceres said. “The trainMaria Caceres ing (programs) are being tailored to specific levels, and that, to us, represents a total success in the effort to reduce and eventually eliminate the crime of sexual assault.” Embedded in the response portion of SAPR-L, representatives of the Office of the Judge Advocate General’s Corps will provide facilitated training on the secretary of defense’s new initiatives regarding Summary Court-Martial Convening Authority and the new changes to the Uniform Code of Military Justice as they pertain to SAPR. “In the last fiscal year alone, the Navy received 582 reports of sexual assault, affecting Sailors across all ranks. This crime is corrosive to both our morale and to our operational readiness,” said Herb. “Just as all Sailors are affected, all hands must work together to reduce and ultimately eliminate these crimes.” “Both SAPR-L and SAPR-F training will provide our team the critical tools to eliminate sexual assault

NATTC ‘Mind, Body, Spirit’ fair coming this fall From Lt. Cmdr. Jeff Bornemann NATTC Command Chaplain

This November marks the 70th anniversary of Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC). Supporting the 70th anniversary celebrations, NATTC will be holding a “Mind, Body, Spirit” fair Oct. 5 promoting the integrity of the whole person. Why a Mind Body Spirit Fair? Because the Navy-Marine Corps team does not succeed by leading assets and equipment; the team succeeds by leading Sailors and Marines. If service members are not well in mind, body, and spirit they will be unable to tap their full potential. Entrusting the mission to Sailors and Marines who are out of shape, depressed, or drifting without clear career and life goals makes as much sense as putting to sea in ships that are taking on water, leaking fuel, and

NATTC students help out Navy housing residents after flooding AECS(AW/SW) Thomas E. Hebert NATTC PAO

Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) students responded to a call for help June 8 from Mariner’s Village, the military housing complex in the Pensacola area. The complex was inundated by more than 16 inches of rain during the weekend of June 8-10, causing flooding for much of the neighborhood. Nearly 50 NATTC volunteers helped to clear out debris and furniture that was ruined by the invading water in and around more than 100 homes. “(It) felt great to help out and to see the faces of those families,” said NATTC student ABEAA Mathew Reyes when asked about helping out fellow Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen who lived in the complex. The student volunteers contributed more than 376 man-hours in clean-up, mild restoration and helping members move to other houses. “The young Sailors who volunteered for the working party to help us move out of our flooded home were invaluable,” said AW1 Nathan Correll, NATTC instructor. “They helped me move heavy furniture and damaged items from the house that would have taken me an extremely long time to move by myself. I appreciate their hard work and willingness to help.” To show their gratitude, the Mariner’s Village staff held a barbecue to for everyone that helped out in

the efforts to clean up the neighborhood, including the NATTC student volunteers who volunteered to help out their shipmates. For more information about NATTC, visit the center’s website at https://www.netc. navy.mil/centers/cnatt/ nattc/Default.aspx

NavAdmin 199/12 details the process for fleetwide training. Starting July 16, Master Mobile Training Teams (MMTTs) qualified by the Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) will deploy globally to provide SAPR-L preparation training to command leadership triads (commanding officer/officer in charge, executive officer/assistant officer in charge and command master chief/chief of the boat/senior enlisted adviser) in fleet concentration areas and locations with significant Navy presence. After receiving the MTT training, command triads will return to their units and provide SAPR-L training to their khaki leadership (E-7 and above) through interactive video and facilitated face-to-face discussions. This two-hour training course is designed to raise leaders’ awareness about the reality of sexual assault in the Navy and emphasize their key prevention and response roles, provide leaders with tools and techniques to prevent assaults. To ensure all hands are trained, command leadership will then deliver SAPR-F training to all Sailors E-6 and below. This training will focus on the importance of bystander intervention and will equip Sailors with the knowledge and skills necessary to engage, address and positively impact behavior at the deckplate level. Additional guidance on SAPR-F training will be presented to the fleet in a future message. “Not only are SAPR-L and SAPR-F part of the secFair from page 1

Navy weeds out users of designer drugs From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – Navy’s implementation of synthetic drug testing for synthetic chemical compounds such as “Spice” and “Bath Salts” is helping the service close ranks on Sailors who use these prohibited and dangerous substances, officials said July 2. “Navy has zero tolerance for drug abuse. Drug abuse, including use of designer drugs and synthetic compounds, by members of the Navy is incompatible with high standards of performance, military discipline and readiness as embodied by of 21st Century Sailors and Marines,” said Rear Adm. Tony Kurta, director, military personnel plans and policy. Navy reviews its testing of synthetic compounds continuously, and also continually responds to production of new controlled and synthetic compounds, changing testing procedures and pacing the changes being made by producers. Navy has analyzed more than 3,300 urine samples for synthetic chemical compounds since testing began in March, with 101 samples testing positive. Authorized testing under the synthetic drug testing program is conducted under member consent, command directed, unit and/or subunit sweep. NCIS will be notified of every positive sample for possible further investigation with a view toward potential disciplinary or adverse administrative action by the service member’s command. Spice is a synthetic chemical compound that is sold as herbal incense and mimics the effects of the drug marijuana. A ban was placed on five synthetic cannabis compounds commonly found in the designer drug Spice, but also sold under different names. Some of the short-term effects include auditory and visual hallucinations, painless head pressure, panic attacks, time distortion and delirium. Long-term effects from the designer drug can include permanent physical impairment, mental illness or death. The Navy’s zero-tolerance policy toward drug use is a key contributor to the readiness area of the 21st Century Sailor and Marine.

Retired naval aviator collects women’s stories in book By Molly Blake Blue Star Families

For the past seven years, Linda Maloney, a retired naval aviator, and 70 other women collaborated on a special project — telling their individual stories as female military aviators and mothers. The culmination of this extensive process is a coffee-table book called “Military Fly Moms.” Although the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) served during World War II, and where the first female aviators to support the U.S. military, their organization was disbanded when the men started coming home. Although many would have preferred to keep on flying, as with most young people serving during the war years, these young pilots went home, got married, raised families and generally put their war years behind them. In 1977, after a long legislative campaign, they were recognized by Congress as American military veterans. These 1,074 WASPs had flown every aircraft in the U.S. military inventory, ferried aircraft from coast to coast and trailed banners behind their planes for artillery trainees to shoot at. Thirty-eight of them died in training flights or

while on missions. In 2010, Congress awarded each of the WASPs its highest honor, the Congressional Gold Medal. For nearly 30 years after World War II, even though women had been slowly gaining permanent status in the military since the Army Nurse Corps had been established in 1901, no women flew again in any kind of military capacity. In 1972, the services could no longer defend the notion that they had Linda Maloney, a retired naval aviator, compiled the stories of 70 other female military aviators for the new no use for female pilots, book “Military Fly Moms.” especially considering the numerous noncombat roles and missions ly normal.” elite group of women that existed.

It is clear through the stories related in “Military Fly Moms” that not a single woman found the entire experience to be easy enough to sail through without obstacles or learning experiences. For most, an encouraging parent sent her on her path; a partnering husband supported her to keep following her dreams; and her children sustained her faith in herself. Many times, an aviator mom exited the military to focus on her family, only to find that she needed to return to the cockpit, and often did, whether in the reserve or Guard, or with a civilian airline. Regardless of the enormous obstacles most faced in achieving their goals, they all persevered, and the most important lesson resonating throughout the stories is the motto, “Don’t ever give up!” Molly Blake has a master’s degree in English. She and her husband, Lt. Col. Peter Blake, have two girls and they are stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma in Arizona. Lt. Col. Blake, a Marine Corps aviator, is the commanding officer of VMA-311. You may view Molly Blake’s work at www.mollyblake.com or ww.bluestarfam.org.

About the author Linda Maloney, one of the first women in U.S. history to join a combat military flying squadron, is the recipient of numerous military awards, including the distinguished Air Medal for combat. Along with her passion to share the stories from “Military Fly Moms,” Maloney is a motivational speaker highlighting the importance of passing down a lasting legacy to future generations. She is also actively involved in several mentoring programs in which she encourages young people, especially young women, to reach for the stars. She recently started My Mom Flies, a women/mom-focused company, which encourages and supports moms who are managing family and career priorities while striving to achieve balance in their lives.

The many faces of NETC, NAS Pensacola Diversity Festival draws thousands By Ed Barker NETC PAO

Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) and Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) area commands embraced diversity June 28 with a festival for military and government workers. “Typically, Navy commands sponsor individual events in conjunction with their observance months to emphasize diversity, but we’ve chosen a different path,” said Rear Adm. Don Quinn, commander, NETC. “This diversity festival is designed as an all-encompassing event that gives added depth to our presentations and includes information and areas we don’t normally have an opportunity to support. Diversity gives us a tremendous advantage – having a diverse workforce makes us more capable and that helps us deal with today’s complex problems.” Guest speaker for the event was Lee Mun Wah, founder of StirFry Seminars and Consulting and an internationally renowned Chinese-American documentary filmmaker, author, poet and master diversity trainer. “We’re good at celebrating diversity but not good at relationships,” said Lee. “Diversity is not just people of different cultures, but it is what we learn from them. To change the world, we have to get to know each other.” Lee’s training workshop focused on helping service members interact with each other, as audience participants were asked to find someone they didn’t know and form an instant relationship through several question-and-answer exercises. “This workshop was a lot more useful than I thought it was going to be,” said AEAA Alexander Goldberg, who was paired with the NETC Force Master Chief April Beldo. “The exercises were genuinely useful and gave me a new way to relate to people.” The festival included a packed schedule of cultural displays, a fashion show, ethnic food samples and live entertainment throughout the day. Booths and displays at the event included Women’s History, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic Heritage, Black History, Native American, Italian-American Heritage, Disability Awareness and others. Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) training segments and supervisory EEO training were offered at various times during the day. “This is our second year for the festival and the turnout was once again outstanding; we counted more than 3,000 supervisors, managers, civilian employees and military members,” said Angela Simpson, NETC command deputy Equal Employment Opportunity officer. “Not only was this an ideal opportunity for diversity and inclusion training, it was a chance to experience the festival theme of embracing our differences and sharing our similarities. The festival was designed to educate all attendees on the customs and cultures of groups represented.” “Some of the things we look for at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) are ‘Best Practices’ we can share with other organizations and this Diversity Festival definitely qualifies,” said Bruce Stewart, deputy director of Training, Compliance and Strategic Initiatives in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at OPM. “The leadership support, creativity, energy and effort put into the booths were fantastic.” For more information on the Naval Education and Training Command, visit the NETC website at https://www.netc.navy.mil/.

Student intern’s perspective on festival: An enjoyable eye-opener By Alyssa Pettie Public Affairs Intern

As I crossed the threshold of the diversity festival, I was unsure of what would be in store. In my prior experience with fairs celebrating diversity, entertainment such as live music, dramatic skits and poetry readings were expected along with booths that sell typical cultural items, including food, clothing, jewelry and art. I’ve seen “do it yourself” displays which taught how to dance the meringue, make a gyro sandwich or even speak a phrase in Mandarin Chinese. As an intern of the University of West Florida, I had no previous experience with the NAS Pensacola Diversity Festival; this was my experience. Entering the hangar of the Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC), I saw what must have been close to 3,000 people. To begin the celebration, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) commander Rear Adm. Donald P. Quinn gave a short speech on the cardinal purport of variance within the Navy. “The diversity of our Navy makes us more capable,” Quinn told the crowd. “The power of teams is well-proven and the di-

versity of solutions offered by diverse teams enables us to deal with today’s very complex problems … it’s proactive … requires us to act, to mentor, to look out for others. Finally, diversity is a fundamental characteristic of our republic and it was a key consideration in the formation of our unique form of participative democracy. Our republic was founded on the promise of opportunity for all.” Quinn’s compelling address was a great starter to the day as it

set the mood for the festival. After all formalities had been covered, special guest diversity trainer Lee Mun Wah, founder of StirFry Seminars and Consulting, engaged the audience with question-and-answer exercises, which involved having everyone pair off with someone of a different cultural ethnicity. I found Lee to be especially intriguing and he proved to be my favorite segment throughout the entire day. He was both comical and endearing. I

thought his hands-on approach to teaching divergence was far more innovative than I had seen in awhile. After participating in Lee’s demonstrations, I began to explore the exhibits. Moving from booth to booth, it was engrossing. Cultural booths presented Israel, Africa, Italy, Germany, Lebanon, Native America and Pacific Asia. I was predominantly impressed with a display of “little-known black facts” brought to light; the “Juneteenth Celebration,” representing June 19 as the day African-Americans were pronounced free of slavery in Texas, and a memorial to LeRoy W. Homer, an African-American first officer onboard one of the planes hijacked during the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The special events provided at the diversity festival were exceptional. I particularly enjoyed watching the national dance of the Philippines, the Okinawa Kenjin-Kai dancers and the ethnic fashion show, as I got to see first-hand clothing and adornments worn in other countries. The festival was fun, it was interesting; above all, it was a great opportunity to reach out, learn, interact and experience with others from around the world.

NAS Whiting Field’s FFSC receives CNIC accreditation Story, photo by Lt. j.g. Tim Mosso NASWF PAO

The Naval Air Station Whiting Field Fleet and Family Support Center has been honored with renewed accreditation by Commander, Naval Installations Command. CNIC accreditation is an honor bestowed upon the Navy’s Fleet and Family Support Centers in recognition of consistently high standards of service and community engagement. “It’s a big deal. It is a very high standard of quality assurance,” FFSC Director Bill Lawson explained. “We work on preparation for three years. It’s not so much preparation for an inspection as it is a way of life; the way we conduct business is our preparation. We are in the process of preparing for our next inspection in 2015.” Centers Navy-wide are evaluated by CNIC on the basis of four principal performance arenas, known collectively as “original capabilities.” A center’s total capabilities are the sum of its performance in support of armed forces community career sup-

port/retention, crisis r e s p o n s e , deployment/readiness and program management. CNIC’s pre-accreditation inspection is rigorous, and preparation on the part of center personnel was exhaustive. The standard accreditation inspection is one working week in duration, and it encompasses probing interviews of center personnel, reviews of center records, reviews of center resources in support of its

programs and physical inspection of the center facilities. The inspection tested all facets of personnel knowledge and performance, and no detail was too small to warrant review; CNIC makes a point of evaluating posters, flyers and promotional giveaways that could be considered “marketing” material in support of center services. “CNIC’s inspectors can review every record of

each activity and program for the entire three years of your previous accreditation period. For five days, they review the records, but they also conduct direct observations, interviews of staff and (military community members),” Lawson noted. The benefits of maintaining accredited status are manifold. The air station’s FFSC support personnel will be able to continue to offer

services that are consistent with the Navy-wide standards of CNIC while supporting the particular needs of a naval aviation training command. FFSC’s unique tailoring of standardized Navy courses allows its personnel to address challenges confronting base personnel – a distinction that impressed CNIC’s team. “All Fleet and Family Support Centers offer a form of the stress management classes, for instance, but our staff’s particular focus is on the stressors that are inherent in an aviation training environment. “Our classes including ‘The Challenges of Flight School and Marriage’ and ‘Study Skills’ are variations on classes offered at all major installations, but they are particular to our community,” Lawson said. Base FFSC also received praise for the quality and accessibility of relocation resources for service members and their families. All military installations experience large-scale personnel turnover, but NAS Whiting Field’s training commands produce a

large and regular volume of in-coming and outgoing students. The center’s relocation assistance programs are a focal point of the staff’s effort to ease the burden of military families, and CNIC offered high-level endorsement of the air station’s PCS guidance. “The chief of the Navy Relocation Assistance Program was extremely impressed with how we meet the needs of student pilots, their instructors and enlisted supporting personnel through our relocation workshops,” Lawson declared. NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin visited the center in June to present the certificate of accreditation signed by CNIC Commander Adm. William French. Coughlin used the occasion to congratulate the staff and express gratitude on behalf of the base community. “The bottom line is this; you take care of our Sailors. You’ve earned this, and you should be very proud. “We’re a better base and a better Navy for it,” he said.

NAS Whiting Field’s Feds Feed Families food drive under way From NASWF PAO

Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s “Feds Feed Families” food drive began in good style June 21 with a check presentation from the base’s staff association. The organization donated $500 to the program that helps to feed the hungry, particularly in the summer months, when there are shortages in food banks and an increased need among children who are out of school and not benefitting from school lunch programs. The nationwide program is being administered on NAS

Whiting Field by the Chaplain’s Office, which accepted the check from Staff Association Chairperson Cmdr. Jonathan Lewis. “This really shows what we are about here at NAS Whiting Field,” Lt. j.g. Jason Hart, one of the base chaplains, said. “It is really exciting to be able to help people who need assistance. This will help us do a lot to reach out to the community,” he said. The Feds Feed Families guidelines state that monetary donations translate to four pounds of food for each dollar given. That estimate would

equate to 2,000 pounds of food for the annual drive. It is a significant step in reaching the base’s donation goal. Food items collected at Whiting are donated to the Bay Area Food Bank which distributes the food to more than 100 area food pantries to help provide for the less fortunate. Feds Feed Families is a voluntary effort undertaken by federal employees across the country. The program is administered by the Chief Human Capital Officers (CHCO) Council, which will once again lead the campaign with the support of the Office of Personnel

Management (OPM). The NASWF food drive campaign will be held throughout July and August. Donation boxes are located in the commissary, the operations building, the base chapel, Fleet and Family Support Center, Naval Branch Health Clinic, the fire department and the base command building. According to the Feds Feed Families website, the most wanted items include: canned fruits (in light syrup or its own juices), canned vegetables (low sodium, no salt added), multigrain cereals, grains (brown & white rice, oatmeal, bulgur,

quinoa, couscous, macaroni and cheese), canned proteins (tuna, salmon, chicken, peanut butter, beans), soups (beef stew, chili, chicken noodle, turkey and rice), condiments (tomato based sauces, light soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, salad dressing, oils), individually packed snacks, baking goods and hygiene items. Last year, NASWF collected a total of 1,736 pounds of food. RP1 Yolanda Jordan is program coordinator. Anyone who desires more information on the program can contact her at 1 (850) 623-7212 or via e-mail at yolanda.jordan@navy.mil.

Beating summer’s

Don’t let heat illness take you out – know the signs, symptoms and treatments Symptoms of heat syncope include: • Light-headedness, dizziness, fainting. First aid for heat syncope: People with heat syncope should: • Sit or lie down in a cool place when they begin to feel symptoms. • Slowly drink water, clear juice or a sports beverage.

From Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

People who are exposed to extreme heat or work in hot environments may be at risk of heat stress. Exposure to extreme heat can result in occupational illnesses and injuries. Heat stress can result in heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps or heat rashes. Heat can also increase the risk of injuries in workers as it may result in sweaty palms, fogged-up safety glasses and dizziness. Burns may also occur as a result of accidental contact with hot surfaces or steam. People at risk of heat stress include outdoor workers and workers in hot environments such as firefighters, bakery workers, farmers, construction workers, miners, boiler room workers, factory workers and others. People at greater risk of heat stress include those who are 65 years of age or older, are overweight, have heart disease or high blood pressure, or take medications that may be affected by extreme heat. Prevention of heat stress in workers is important. Employers should provide training to workers so they understand what heat stress is, how it affects their health and safety, and how it can be prevented.

Heat stroke

Heat stroke is the most serious heat-related disorder. It occurs when the body becomes unable to control its temperature: the body’s temperature rises rapidly, the sweating mechanism fails, and the body is unable to cool down. When heat stroke occurs, the body temperature can rise to 106 degrees Fahrenheit or higher within 10 to 15 minutes. Heat stroke can cause death or permanent disability if emergency treatment is not given. Symptoms of heat stroke include: • Hot, dry skin or profuse sweating • Hallucinations • Chills • Throbbing headache • High body temperature • Confusion/dizziness • Slurred speech First aid for heat stroke: Take the following steps to treat a person with heat stroke: • Call the on-base emergency number, 452-3333; (off base, 911), and notify the victim’s supervisor. • Move the sick worker to a cool shaded area. • Cool the worker using methods such as soaking their clothes with water; spraying, sponging or showering them with water and fanning their body.

Heat cramps

Heat exhaustion

Heat exhaustion is the body’s response to an excessive loss of the water and salt, usually through excessive sweating. People most prone to heat exhaustion are those that are elderly, have high blood pressure and those working in a hot environment. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include: • Heavy sweating • Extreme weakness or fatigue • Dizziness, confusion • Nausea • Clammy, moist skin • Pale or flushed complexion • Muscle cramps • Slightly elevated body temperature • Fast and shallow breathing First aid for heat exhaustion: Treat a person suffering from heat exhaustion with the following: • Have them rest in a cool, shaded or air-conditioned area. • Have them drink plenty of water or other cool, nonalcoholic beverages. • Have them take a cool shower, bath or sponge bath.

Heat syncope

Heat syncope is a fainting (syncope) episode or dizziness that usually occurs with prolonged standing or sudden rising from a sitting or lying position. Factors that may contribute to heat syncope include dehydration and lack of acclimatization.

Heat cramps usually affect workers who sweat a lot during strenuous activity. This sweating depletes the body's salt and moisture levels. Low salt levels in muscles causes painful cramps. Heat cramps may also be a symptom of heat exhaustion. Symptoms include muscle pain or spasms usually in the abdomen, arms or legs. First aid for heat cramps: People with heat cramps should: • Stop all activity, and sit in a cool place. • Drink clear juice or a sports beverage. • Do not return to strenuous work for a few hours after the cramps subside because further exertion may lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Seek medical attention if any of the following apply: • The worker has heart problems. • The worker is on a low-sodium diet. • The cramps do not subside within one hour.

Protect yourself in a work enviornment

• Schedule maintenance and repair jobs in hot areas for cooler months. • Schedule hot jobs for the cooler part of the day. • Acclimatize workers by exposing them for progressively longer periods to hot work environments. • Reduce the physical demands of workers. • Use relief workers or assign extra workers for physically demanding jobs. • Provide cool water or liquids to workers. •Avoid drinks with caffeine, alcohol or large amounts of sugar. • Provide rest periods with water breaks. • Provide cool areas for use during break periods. • Monitor workers who are at risk of heat stress. • Wear light-colored, loose-fitting, breathable clothing. • Avoid non-breathing synthetic clothing. • Take more breaks in extreme heat and humidity. • Take breaks in the shade or a cool area when possible. • Drink water frequently. Drink enough water that you never become thirsty. • Be aware that protective clothing or personal protective equipment may increase the risk of heat stress. • Monitor your physical condition and that of your coworkers.

Navy training honors 2011 top instructors Story, photo by Steve Vanderwerff NETC PAO

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced its 2011 Military Instructors of the Year (IoY) during a ceremony June 21 at the Navy Memorial. “Quality is never an accident,” said Rear Adm. Don Quinn, commander, Naval Education and Training Command. “It is always the product of deliberate intent, dedicated effort and skillful execution. The instructors we honor today embody those characteristics in everything they do. The quality of their work is reflected in the consistently successful fleet missions carried out every day around the globe. Our training remains an asymmetric advantage for us and these instructors deliver it every day,” Quinn said. Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Scott Van Buskirk presented each winner with a NavyMarine Corps Commendation Medal and a plaque. “We are an expeditionary force that operates globally,” said Van Buskirk. “When our ships and our squadrons deploy, they must be self-sustaining. Furthermore, the Navy’s leading-edge technology today is growing ever more complex every day. Our ability to meet the mission, to respond quickly to crises and eliminate threats depends wholly on the expertise and critical thinking skills our

Vice Adm. Scott Van Buskirk, chief of naval personnel and deputy chief of Naval Operations (total force), left, and Rear Adm. Don Quinn, commander of Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), applaud NETC’s 2011 Military Instructors of the Year during an award ceremony at the Navy Memorial. Honored were Officer Instructor of the Year, Lt.jg. Evan P. Aluise; Senior Enlisted Instructor of the Year, ADCM David W. Soucy; Mid-Grade Enlisted Instructor of the Year, ND1(DSW/PJ) Brandon L. Hamilton and Junior Enlisted Instructor of the Year GM2(SW) Andrew R Liley.

Sailors have learned – taught by our exemplary instructors here today – in the nearly 2,000 training courses provided by NETC. “After learning more about your accomplishments, and now meeting you all in person, I think what impresses me most is your passion for instructing. It’s obvious to me that you enjoy the work you do – and I think that’s critical. Your job is more than just teaching a skill – you build a Sailor,” Van Buskirk said. Lt.j.g. Evan P. Aluise, from Richardton, N.D., was selected

as Officer Instructor of the Year. A five-year veteran currently assigned to Naval Nuclear Power Training Command (NNPTC) in Goose Creek, S.C., he teaches thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid flow in nuclear propulsion applications. Aluise said he enjoys being an instructor and influencing the future of the Navy. “Being on the podium is the best part of my day. I truly enjoy teaching and I’m sincerely grateful and feel very fortunate to be selected for such an honor,”

explained Aluise. “Instructors are responsible for setting the standard for future generations and molding them into Sailors that our nation can be proud of.” The Senior Enlisted Instructor of the Year is ADCM (AW/NAC) David W. Soucy, from Bristol, Conn. A 20-year veteran recently assigned to Naval Services Training Command’s Officer Training Command in Newport, R.I., Soucy says he became an instructor because he thought it was important to pass along the knowledge he gained during his career.

“Throughout my naval career I was taught to train my replacement. What better opportunity to train the next generation of Navy warriors than within the instructor community. Mastering your job is, in my opinion, the easy part of Navy life. Being able to pass your knowledge to others makes your talent much more essential,” Soucy said. “My success as an instructor was a complete team accomplishment, because I had the privilege to work with the finest chief’s mess and Sailors in the fleet.” Soucy suggests to anybody considering instructor duty to remember that individuals do not learn in exactly the same manner. “Some students learn by lecture, some learn by discussion, and still others learn by simulation,” explained Soucy. “The biggest advice I could offer as an instructor is to realize that while one technique may work for one student, the same technique may not work for the next.” The NETC Military Instructor of the Year award program recognizes Navy and Marine Corps instructors and facilitators who exemplify personal excellence and display outstanding instructional and leadership performance. Sailors interested in instructor duty should talk with their detailer on requirements.

Corpsman making pro debut with MMA fight in Biloxi By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

HM2 Michael Roberts has a busy schedule. When he is not on duty at the Naval Hospital Pensacola branch clinic at NATTC, he is hitting the books to complete his bachelor’s degree in healthcare management through Southern Illinois University. Roberts, 24, also makes time for mixed martial arts training. The 5-foot-6-inch featherweight, who has been making his mark in the amateur ranks since 2009, will take the next step July 14 with his first professional fight at IP Casino Resort in Biloxi, Miss. Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat sport that

allows the use of boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, wrestling, kickboxing, taekwondo, judo and other styles. Roberts, who grew up in Louisville, Ky., said his training started with taekwondo at age 8. He has been in the Navy for six years and completed tours in Japan, Cuba, Virginia and Camp Pendeleton in California before reporting to NHP in 2009. He is excited about his first pro match. “I have always had that as my goal to shoot for when I got ready,” he said. Roberts says his coaches and teammates have helped him get ready for this fight. He earned a blue belt under Brazilian jiu-jitsu master Adriano Lucio, but he uses judo and other techniques.

“Kickboxing is my strongpoint,” he said. As an amateur, Roberts has had six wins, three by technical knockouts, two by unanimous decision and one by submission. His one loss was by split decision. In Biloxi, he is scheduled to fight current Atlas Fights featherweight champ Jason Knight. It will not be a title fight, but it is a huge opportunity, said Atlas Fight President Glenn Mattina. “This fight can absolutely put Mike in title contention,” Mattina said. There are several fights on the schedule and ticket prices range from $25 to $100 before processing fees. For more information, call, 1 (228) 860-5015 or go to www.atlasfight.com.

Blues to soar over the beach Summer show gives visitors four chances to see Navy’s aerial acrobats From Pensacola Beach Visitors Information Center

The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will perform aerial acrobatics over the Gulf of Mexico during a week of high-flying fun leading up to the Pensacola Beach Air Show on July 14. The Blues, as fans around the world know them, will once again take to the skies over the sugarwhite sands of Pensacola Beach as the highlight and closing act of the annual beach air show. The show is one of the top events of Pensacola’s summer tourism season. Air show fans will have four opportunities to see the world-

famous Blues in action on Pensacola Beach between July 11 and July 14. The thrills begin July 11 at 8 a.m. when the Blues perform “circle and arrival” maneuvers above the beach. They return July 12 at 2 p.m. for practice and again July 13 at 2 p.m. for a fullscale dress rehearsal. On July 14 the air show begins at noon with the Blues closing the day out with a show that will start at about 2 p.m. For the dress rehearsal and show, the Blue Angels are scheduled to perform exhilarating, lowlevel, high-speed stunts and maneuvers over the emerald green waters of the Gulf along with civilian and other military aircraft.

The squadron’s six demonstration pilots fly F/A-18 Hornets, and the team’s C-130 Hercules, affectionately known as “Fat Albert,” also is scheduled to perform in the beach show. Other aircraft and teams scheduled to participate in show include a Grumman Widgeon G-44 flown by Julian MacQueen, a Prometheus flown by Skip StewartTeam RV, an MX2 flown by Gary Ward, an Extra 300SHP flown by Kevin Coleman Aerosports and a Boeing (Stearman) E75 flown by Roy M. Kinsey Jr. For more information, call 932-1500 or go to www.pensacola beachchamber.com.
