Air boss visits NAS Pensacola From Naval Air Forces Public Affairs

Vice Adm. Mike Shoemaker, commander, Naval Air Forces (CNAF), visited bases in Kingsville, Texas; Meridian, Miss. and Pensacola, June 28 and 29, to introduce the new chief of naval air training (CNATRA) and to discuss the way forward for training in T45C Goshawks. Rear Adm. James Bynum assumed command of CNATRA June 23. This is Bynum’s third flag assignment, with his most recent assignment as the commander, Carrier Strike Group 9. The increase in seniority for the CNATRA flag is meant to improve flight safety, address current instructor concerns and manage the return to student training and production plans. Shoemaker also announced that instructor pilots will resume flying the T-45C with the On-Board Oxygen Generator System (OBOGS) in early July, with students resuming flight training later in the month. “The safety of our aircrew remains my number one priority,” said Shoe-

maker. “After months of using a modified mask and configuration that circumvented the OBOGS, new mitigation measures have been put in place that give us the confidence to safely resume flight training using the system. These mitigations monitor the breathing gas and alert and protect our aircrew, as well as incorporate new maintenance procedures to ensure the systems are clean and working properly prior to flight.” Instructor pilots will conduct warmup flights, after which they will brief the remaining pilots and students in their squadrons on use of the new configuration. Students will also require additional warm-up flights prior to the resumption of syllabus training. For further information on physiological episodes visit www. navy. mil/ local/ PEs/.

NavFac Southeast awards multi-award construction contract From Sue Brink NavFac Southeast Public Affairs

Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast (NavFac SE) awarded a $99 million indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity multiple award design-bidbuild construction (IDIQ-MACC) contract to five small businesses June 28 for construction projects located in the NavFac SE area of responsibility, primarily in the Florida panhandle, Mississippi and Tennessee. EMR Inc., a small business located in Lawrence, Kan. was awarded the first

task order for nearly $18 million for a design-build project to construct a multistory Corry Station “A” school unaccompanied housing facility aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. The other

four entities were awarded a minimum guarantee in the amount of $1,000. “This project is vitally important for the Information Warfare students at NAS Pensacola, Corry Station. To provide ad-

ditional berthing capacity for a national training mission that continues to grow,” said NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Martin. “It is the last in a series of seven berthing projects at Corry Station to meet student loading numbers.” The Information Warfare Training Center (IWTC) at Corry Station trains “A” school students fresh out of boot camp. The facility provides training in the fields of cryptology, information operations and information technology. The coursework combines technology, innovation and science to produce highly

trained enlisted personnel required to ensure dominance in the information fields. “A” school students require on-base housing. Currently, rooms in unaccompanied housing often have three students assigned instead of two. This exceeds criteria, makes learning difficult, and is not good for student health. Quality of life suffers affecting academic performance and preparation for the fleet. This project will provide unaccompanied housing quarters space for 216 students. See MACC on page 2

F o u r Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC) Sailors attended a “hometown heroes” luncheon with Autism Pensacola’s Kids for Camp June 27 at Booker T. Washington High School in Pensacola. The Sailors, along with representatives from Escambia County Sheriff’s Office and Escambia County Search and Rescue, answered questions and ate lunch with more than 40 autistic camp par-

ticipants. Organizer Jessica Lapen said the event is a valuable experience for the campers. “I am so grateful to the first responders and others who came today,” said Lapen. “This was a great way for our campers to meet people who help the community.” NASC chaplain’s assistant SN Benjamin O’Connor said participating in the event was humbling. “This is probably my favorite ongoing volunteer project,” said O’Connor. “I come back every chance I

“This facility will allow us to get back to Navy berthing standards for our student Sailors aboard Corry Station,” said NAS Pensacola Housing Director Bob Crist. The new facility will feature a brick veneer exterior finish and include 108 double occupancy rooms (2+0) and a lobby/reception area. The 2+0 rooms will include space for a two person bedroom, a bath, two closets, refrigerator and a microwave oven. Each floor will have a TV room, vending space and a common laundry room. The first floor will also feature a bulk storage room, clean and dirty linen storage rooms, staff office space and break rooms. Construction is expected to be completed by June 2019. MACC contracts are used to pre-qualify a group of contractors (usually four to seven) with respect to performance, experience, capability and safety and then issue task orders to them for projects that meet the parameters of the MACC. MACCs save the command and the government time and resources. The work to be performed under the MACC includes new construction, renovation, alteration, demolition, repair work and any necessary design including: industrial, airfield, aircraft hangar, aircraft traffic control, infrastructure, administrative, training, dormitory and community support facilities. The small businesses awarded under this contract include CMS Corp., Bargersville, Ind.; EMR Inc., Lawrence, Kan.; Leebcor Services, LLC, Williamsburg, Va.; MOWA Barlovento LLC, Joint Venture, Gautier, Miss.; and Whitesell-Green Inc., Pensacola. The five vendors will compete for task orders under the terms and conditions of the awarded contract for the 60-month term of the contract, which includes a base year and four option years, and is expected to be completed by June 2022. Small business (which includes 8(a) firms) play a vital role in the American economy – employing half of our country’s workforce, creating nearly two out of every three new American jobs, and often being the source of the next great American innovation. NavFac SE strives to meet its goals building on its success by providing contract opportunities to these businesses. “NavFac Southeast invests in small businesses to support our national defense,” said Mark Brock NavFac SE small business deputy. “Small businesses fuel the American dream, which grows the local and federal economies that ultimately strengthen the warfighter.” Brock explained that small businesses provide construction expertise, professional services and supported services that support the Navy’s mission and the men and women in uniform. It is through strong policy and sound business processes that NavFac is able to develop capabilities based strategies that consider program risks, cost, schedule and technical requirements that help meet the expectations of supported commanders while supporting public policy objectives. Each year NavFac establishes target goals for Small Business, Small Disadvantaged Business, Historically Underutilized Business Zone Small Business, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business and Women-Owned Small Business categories. The maximum practicable utilization of small business concerns is a matter of national interest with both social and economic benefits. NavFac is the systems command that delivers and maintains quality, sustainable facilities, acquires and manages capabilities for the Navy’s expeditionary combat forces, provides contingency engineering response and enables energy security and environmental stewardship.

New web tuition assistance automation speeds approval By Navy College Program Public Affairs

As part of the Navy’s transformation to a virtual service delivery model, the Navy College Program launched an update to the My Education portal June 27, significantly improving the Web Tuition Assistance (WebTA) approval process for Sailors taking off-duty education courses. “We’ve automated a major portion of the WebTA authorization process to improve accuracy, reduce the time it takes to complete the application and get vouchers authorized,” said Cathe Waters, Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center Voluntary Education (VolEd) lead program analyst. “Not only does the new process give commanding officers greater authority in the TA authorization process, the improvements will enable faster enrollments, grade posting, invoice payments and make voluntary education less stressful.” Previously, Sailors had to wait for the Navy College staff to manually verify and authorize their WebTA applications after command approval. The new process automatically checks/validates the Academic Institution’s (AI)

can, because I feel the kids teach me how to be a better person.” For Lt. Steven Schwarz, NASC’s chaplain and volunteer coordinator, the local non-profit organization serving individuals and families affected by autism represents a fulfilling volunteer opportunity. “Sailors are encouraged to be good stewards in their communities,” said Schwarz. “I’ve worked with Autism Pensacola from the start of my time at this command, and being able to interact with (this group) is a blessing for the volunteers and for the people they help.” Naval Aviation Schools Command, located onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, hosts courses including enlisted and commissioned training programs for aircrew personnel and aviators, as well as survival courses and classes for prospective commanding officers. NASC is part of the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training, which provides single site management for Navy and Marine Corps aviation technical training under Naval Education and Training Command (NETC).

Nichols 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.

course/tuition information, validates a Sailor’s status, including degree plan, counseling, no missing grades, EAOS status, TA annual usage, etc.. As part of the update, the My Education portal also adds an AI module where Sailors can select their courses/tuition rates and have those automatically uploaded to the WebTA voucher. “If all Navy requirements are met and the request is command approved, My Education sends the service member a link to the school payment voucher for signing and delivery to the Academic Institution,” Waters added. In order for a Sailor to have their WebTA request accepted and command approved, they need to meet specific training and policy requirements, (training completed, academic counseling by a Navy College counselor, degree plan uploaded, passing the PRT, recommended for advancement, etc.) to qualify. Mandatory training includes TA Policy and Procedures Training and the Joint Knowledge Online Higher Education Prep Course. Training can be found at the Navy College website under “Resources” and “Training.” Navy College Education Counselors also provide the re-

quired academic counseling to help Sailors define their goals and select an education program. Once a college/university and a program have been selected, Sailors work with their AI to produce an education plan which they upload to their “My Education,” “education tab” and “upload files” tab. When all the above requirements have been met, Sailors are able to create, save and submit their WebTA application, entering the Command Approver’s e-mail address. WebTA applications that do not pass the automatic checks will be reviewed and manually processed by a Navy College Program staff member, requiring extra time to fix problems. It is highly recommended that WebTA applications be submitted no later than 30 days in advance, but all WebTA applications MUST be command approved no later than 14 calendar days prior to an AI’s published term start date. Applications may be submitted for approval up to 120 days prior to term start dates. Visit the NCP website: https://www. navy college.navy.mil to start the education process, submit a Help Request at the Assistance Center, initiate a Live Chat session or review knowledge management articles.

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,

As summer heats up, parents lose ‘cool’ By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I

t was a hot summer day in the 1970s.

My brother, Tray, and I were riding along with our mother to the drive-through teller or orthodontist appointments or grocery shopping at A&P – I can’t quite recall. Commensurate with his seniority as the older child, he rode in the front passenger’s seat. I was in the back of our large, buttermilk yellow Buick with two massive doors and searing brown vinyl interior. I tried to move, but my thighs stuck to the naugahyde. For fear I might lose the first layer of skin, I peeled my legs slowly off the sticky vinyl and scooted to the window. I stuck my head out to feel the airstream in my hair. The pale backside of my upper arm touched down on the hot chrome window frame – Ouch. Bored, Tray grabbed the knob of our Buick’s radio and cranked it up, hoping Mom wouldn’t complain. From my wind tunnel in the back seat, I

could hear the grinding voice of Ted Nugent and see Tray’s elbow jerk to the rhythm of his air guitar. “I just don’t get it,” Mom piped up over the screeching sounds, “Why on Earth would a cat scratch a beaver? That just doesn’t make sense, ecologically speaking.” Tray and I were mortal enemies, but he grinned at me to share our mutual opinion that Mom was a square. Everyone else in the world knew the song was “Cat Scratch Fever,” not “Cat Scratch a Beaver.” Everyone else but our mother. She was notorious for botching lyrics and doing cheesy, old-fashioned dances to our favorite songs. We shriveled in humiliation when Mom pointed her thumbs into the air to the beat, or did the Mashed Potato to Rod Stewart’s “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” or KC & The Sunshine Band’s “Shake, Shake, Shake Your Booty.”

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. She was born uncool, we thought, and were thankful that we would never suffer the same fate. But then, life played its cruel joke, and we became parents.

fully enAlthough trenched in denial, I sometimes get the feeling that, much like my mother before me, I have no idea what’s cool anymore. I reluctantly allow our teenage daughter to control the radio on our way to school, and am forced to listen to the repertoire of new rock alternative and pop tunes that only serve to keep me from hearing the news and weather. As cool as I think I am, I’m just realizing who Radiohead and the Chainsmokers are. It’ll take me another year before I can wrap my mind around The Killers and Paramore. When we were stationed at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, our three children wanted to go to an outdoor MWR concert on base, featuring some nationally-recognized bands. All our friends were going with their children, so despite the fact that we couldn’t identify the bands’ tunes off the top of our heads, we jumped on the bandwagon like groupies. The morning of the concert, my husband, Francis, and I figured we’d better do our research. With our daughters’ assistance, we

played snippets on iTunes to bone up. “Hey, I’ve heard this one before!” I said, and Francis and I got up in front of our desktop computer to gyrate to the beat. The daughters just rolled their eyes. Later at the concert, Francis and I were ready to prove that we hadn’t lost our cool. Pairing 80s dance moves with inaccurate lyrics, we appeared to be having a blast. An hour later, Francis asked me to search my purse for ibuprophen for a pain in his lower back. After another 30 minutes, we began to yawn and complain about the noise. Finally, in the last set of the concert, we just wanted to go home, take our fiber tablets, and go to bed. Without us realizing it, Francis and I had become just like our own parents, obliviously embarrassing the children by being so uncool. We realized that we are powerless to stop this ebb and flow. It’s simply the natural circle of life. Which, unlike the cat who scratched that beaver, makes perfect sense, ecologically.

The Wounded Samoan Warrior: One

S a i l o r ’s

to

recovery

ven inside a gym filled with chatter and laughter, he stands out. Built like an NFL linebacker, there is no question he is an athlete. He seems a little out of place, but he lines up in formation with the rest of his team and they begin doing warm-up drills on the freshlyglossed basketball court. With each step, his face slightly winces in discomfort and his grip tightens on the cane that’s helping him walk. Despite the pain, he still manages to put a smile on people’s faces. “My first name is Pou, can you guess my last name?” he asks with a grin broadening across his face. “It’s Pou. My name is Pou Pou, you know, like the police.” In the Navy, he is known as IT1 Pou Pou, pronounced Po-Po. But, after nearly two decades of service, that part of his journey is coming to an end. His injuries will not allow him to continue his career. “It’s been hard,” Pou said. “Every day, you anticipate that pain. It follows you everywhere. It’s hard to explain; It’s like a feeling of electrical pulses from your back down to your toes. It’s a constant pain, an irritating feeling type of pain.”

The biggest injury happened when he was on deployment. “I was on a rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) heading from my ship to an Australian ship,” Pou said. “I’m not sure if the driver was trying to show off, but he was going pretty fast, and there were large swells. I was at the bow of the RHIB, and suddenly lost grip. Next thing I know, I’m in the air and slam my back against the area where the steering wheel was. “I thought I broke my back. I laid down for a while, until the pain went away. Knowing me as the big guy, I went on board and finished the job.” Although his back was not broken, the injury caused sciatica nerve peripheral neuropathy. Things only got worse after his first surgery when the incision got infected. He went to receive a second surgery to wash out the infection. After an additional two

surgeries, he developed Failed Back Surgery Syndrome. Since an early age, the gentle giant has had to overcome pain. “My father passed away when I was 13,” explains Pou, who was born in Fitiuta Manu’a, American Samoa. “I only had my mom and my little sister, so I became the man of the house back in our village. One day, I woke up and decided I had to do something with my life and help support my family, so I walked down to the nearest Navy recruiting station.” In 1997, Pou headed to boot camp, and later reported to his first duty station, USS Abraham Lincoln (CNV 72), as a radioman. He went on to serve aboard two other ships and multiple shore duties in San Diego and Hawaii. “It made me proud to be in the Navy and be a Samoan warrior,” Pou said, who stands 6 feet 4 inches. “It means a lot to me, being in the Navy and carrying on that legacy of a Sailor and sea warrior.” His warrior spirit has helped him fight through countless hours of physical therapy including aqua-therapy, medical massage therapy, cupping therapy and acupuncture. In addition to his back problems, years of weight lifting and basketball have taken a toll on his knees; so much, that he’s gone through four knee surgeries. While doctors try to help his body physically recover, it is the mental anguish that Pou battles with the most. Dealing with the pain, day-in and day-out, has had an impact on his temper. Pou admits, that at times, it can be hard to live with him, but

he credits his wife and family as playing a big role in his recovery. “They’ve been very supportive – especially my wife,” he said. “They help me out a lot with my recovery. I know it’s hard; it’s been hard on everybody. I know they see something different in me now. I’m a different person; I can see it myself. But I’m getting there. I know there’s help out there.” Much of that help has come after he was introduced to the Navy Wounded Warrior program. “A good friend of mine was telling me about this program that was for the wounded warriors,” Pou said. “He gave me a point of contact and I called. It was exactly the support I was looking for.” However, getting onto the Navy’s Wounded Warrior team took more than just a simple phone call. Participants must compete in several different sports and only the best qualify. Fortunately for Pou, he was one of those selected. “It was 3 a.m. and I saw an email from somebody from (Washington) D.C.,” Pou said. “The first thing I saw was ‘Congratulations IT1 Pou.’ I woke up my wife. I was screaming, ‘I made the team.’ I know the neighbors must have been really mad. But, I didn’t care. I was happy. I just turned on the lights and prayed.” According to Jessie White, Team Navy’s archery coach, Pou’s teammates have also benefited from his participation. “He keeps everyone else inspired,” White said. “He keeps them upbeat. When you have a guy like that on your team, you don’t get those lows in your

training cause he keeps everyone excited to be here.” The same perseverance that helped him raise a little sister and take care of his mom has carried him through in training camp. “He came here at one of my intro camps and wanted to shoot archery,” White said, a former Team Army Warrior Games participant. “Well, they don’t make a lot of bows that big; that’s a big dude. The first bow I gave him, he broke about every three shots. At first I was like, ‘Look Dude, this is probably just not your sport. I love you, your attitude is great, but you’re just so big.’ But, he didn’t stop. He came back every day. Well, if this guy is willing to come back every day, I’ll keep fixing the bow. “He comes back at the trials, and same attitude. I thought he was going to go home and forget about shooting archery. Nope. He came just as motivated as day one. So, I got with some people and got him a bow that fits him now.” White, and other coaches, strive to do what they can to make their wounded warriors feel like part of the team. “Don’t let a doctor tell you that you can’t do it,” White said. “We just got to find you a way to do it. Don’t just give up; there’s always something you can do.” This year, Pou hopes to compete in seated discus/shot put, archery and seated volleyball. “I’ve always been competitive, since I was a young kid,” Pou said. “My goal right now is to win some medals. It doesn’t matter what medal, as long as we get a medal.” The 2017 Wounded Warrior Games are taking place in Chicago through July 8.

NavOceanO traces its roots on World Hydrography Day By Rebecca Burke Eckhoff Naval Oceanographic Office Public Affairs

S

TENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss. (NNS) – The Naval Oceanographic Office (NavOCeanO), once known as the U.S. Navy Hydrographic Office, honored its heritage and the importance of its mission by celebrating World Hydrography Day June 26 at Stennis Space Center (SSC), home of the world’s largest concentration of hydrographers and oceanographers. Attendees of the event were invited to view and board hydrographic survey vessels while subject matter experts provided brief explanations of the newest survey equipment as well as hydrographic survey artifacts housed in NavOceanO’s on-site oceanographic library. Additionally, NavOceanO Commanding Officer Capt. Greg Ireton was joined by Hydrographer of the Navy and Commander, Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command Rear. Adm. Tim Gallaudet, and Fleet Survey Team Commanding Officer Cmdr. J.P. Garstka for a cake cutting ceremony. World “Hydro” Day 2017 marked the 96th anniversary of the establishment of the International Hydrographic Organization, which sets the standard for hydrographic surveying to support the production of safety of

navigation products. During NavOceanO’s event, Gallaudet explained the importance of hydrography, the science of surveying and charting bodies of water, and the hydrographic surveys conducted under his command. “It’s hard to believe that only five percent of the volume of the world’s oceans has been explored and only 20 percent of the world’s sea floor has been mapped to modern standards,” said Gallaudet. “There is so much we still don’t know, but we’re broadening our knowledge of the oceans and increasing the safety of navigation with every hydrographic survey conducted by the Sailors and civilians in our community.” In 1866, the mission of the newly established U.S. Navy Hydrographic Office was defined as “the improvement of the

means for navigating safely the vessels of the Navy and of the mercantile marine by providing ... nautical charts, sailing directions, navigators, and manuals of instructions for the use of all vessels of the United States, and for the benefit and use of navigators generally.” More than 150 years later, hydrography remains at the heart of NavOceanO’s mission. The command uses a variety of platforms – from a fleet of six TAGS 60 Class survey ships to autonomous underwater vehicles and a refurbished DC-3 aircraft – to conduct hydrographic surveys around the world every year.

NavOceanO’s Hydrographic Department supports the Navy warfighter by providing strategic, tactical and specialized hydrographic projects in support of surface and subsurface navigation. The department produces safety of navigation charting products in partnership with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Charting products may also be released directly to the fleet for immediate military purposes. NavOceanO’s subordinate command, Fleet Survey Team, deploys globally to conduct hy-

drographic surveys and related environmental assessments to enable safe and effective maritime navigation and access to the littorals for naval and joint forces. NavOceanO, comprised of approximately 800 military, civilian and contractor personnel, uses a variety of platforms including ships, aircraft, satellite sensors, buoys and unmanned underwater vehicles to collect oceanographic and hydrographic data from the world’s oceans.

NASWF continues buffering initiatives to protect base mission By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Officer

N

aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) secured an easement to help protect the training mission of the installation June 21. The contract provides for an easement over 163 acres of undeveloped property adjacent to the northern boundary of Navy Outlying Landing Field (NOLF) Pace. The easement issues protections that ensure incompatible development of the land cannot occur in the future.

The property is under flight tracks for the helicopter training that occurs at NOLF Pace helping to ensure that future construction does not occur under accident potential zones (APZs) or clear zones. “This parcel of land offers a tremendous buffer with respect to our TH-57 (helicopter) train-

ing,” Community Planning Liaison Officer Randy Roy stated. “These transactions will positively affect the installation’s mission for decades to come.” The closing is part of a cooperative effort between the Navy and Santa Rosa County that helps ensure the continuity of training at the installation and protects the $1.19 billion economic impact that NAS Whiting Field provides to the county every year. The easement was purchased for $571,000 with 75 percent paid by the Navy with funds from the Readiness Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) program. Under the program, the Navy paid $428,000 with Santa Rosa County picking up the remainder of the costs.

“Whiting is more than Whiting Field proper. It includes twelve outlying landing fields, five in Santa Rosa County,” Santa Rosa County Commissioner Don Salter stated. “It is just as important for us to buffer these outlying landing fields as NAS Whiting Field itself.” Easements are far less expensive to obtain than outright purchases of the property and entail no maintenance costs expenditures for the military. Additionally, easements encourage far more willing sellers as the owners are able to continue to use the land, in its current state, in perpetuity. NOLF Pace is one of five outlying landing fields used by Training Air Wing Five to prepare military aviators for their

future careers as helicopter pilots. The field routinely enables about 130,000 flight operations annually – approximately 26 percent of the helicopter training performed at NAS Whiting Field. TraWing-5 produces more than 550 helicopter pilots for the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard as well as a fair number of pilots for allied nations. “The rotary-wing training mission is an important one to our Navy and its ability to protect the nation,” NASWF Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau said. “The buffering initiatives we execute with the county are an important part of ensuring the future success of that mission here at NAS Whiting Field.”

Feds Feeds Family initiative begins onboard NASWF Story, photo by Jamie Link NASWF Public Affairs Office

Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) embarked on its fifth-annual Feds Feed Families (FFF) campaign in June. The ongoing program collects and distributes donations of food for needy families in the local area. The program runs through Aug. 31. Working in conjunction with Commander, Naval Installations Command (CNIC), the Naval Air Station Whiting Field command religious program will implement and coordinate charity efforts on the installation. The program has collected nearly 2,000 pounds of food each year, supporting more than 600 families. As in previous year’s efforts, the base chapel has partnered with the NAS Whiting Field Commissary in selling $5 and $10 pre-wrapped bags of groceries for the convenience of those wishing to donate. Commissary cashiers will inform each customer of their opportunity to donate during checkout and will accept donations of pre-wrapped bags and other grocery items. In addition to the commissary’s col-

Naval Air Station Whiting Field DeCA Commissary store worker Jack Moore shows off one of the pre-made bags in the designated red collection bins for the food drive sponsored by Feds Feed Families campaign. The program is supported with the collection efforts from NAS Whiting Field Chapel religious program.

lection efforts, red donation bins have been placed around the installation including locations at the commissary, base chapel, command building, Training Air Wing Five building and fitness center. These bins are for Feds Feed Families donations exclusively, and will be picked up once each week, or as needed, until the end of the program. The Feds Feed Families program is

implemented across nearly all agencies of the federal government, and was created to help food banks and pantries to bolster their supplies of food during the summer months, when donations are traditionally down and need increases. The Feds Feed Families website reminds readers, “By donating food, you’re helping to get meals to children, seniors and families who need them.”

The NAS Whiting Field chapel will deliver all the donated groceries to the local food bank, Feeding the Gulf Coast, formerly the Bay Area Food Bank. “One in six families along the Gulf Coast struggle with hunger. Supporting the Feds Feeds Families Program is our opportunity to help stop some of that hunger,” NAS Whiting Field Command Chaplain Lt. Cmdr. Michael Griggs said. Grocery items that are of high fiber, low sugar or low sodium products are in particular demand. Examples of these specific grocery items include; canned vegetables and fruits, canned or dry beans, peanut butter, hot and cold cereals, 100 percent juice, and canned tuna, salmon or chicken. Griggs is looking forward to a succesful drive this year. “Thank you in advance for your generous contributions; your gift really matters to someone in need,” Griggs said. Further questions and concerns can be directed to Griggs at the NAS Whiting Field Chapel at (850) 665-6110.

Avoid a thirsty fate ...

Hydrate! By Cmdr. Connie Scott Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center http://navymedicine.navylive.dodlive.mil/

W

e all know that water is good for us. But do you know just how critical it really is? Consider this – you can survive for weeks without food, but you can only live for days without water. It’s that important. Water helps replenish fluid loss, regulate temperature, protect organs, keep joints moving, transport other nutrients throughout your body and eliminate waste. Let’s take a look at your basic hydration needs and ways to determine if you’re meeting them, as well as how your needs increase due to physical activity and tips for preventing dehydration. Hydration needs: Your main source of hydration should always be water. The amount of water that your body needs is based on a variety of factors, two of which are body weight and physical activity. You must meet your hydration needs daily, because your

body loses water through regular activities such as sweating, urinating and even breathing. Use the table below to identify your recommended daily hydration needs based on your body weight. Body weight – ounces/day 120 pounds 60-120 oz./day 150 pounds 75-150 oz./day 175 pounds 90-175 oz./day 200 pounds 100-200 oz./day 225 pounds 115-225 oz./day 250 pounds 125-200 oz./day It’s important to note that if you are thirsty, your body is already dehydrated. Hydrating for physical activity: If you engage in high-intensity physical activity, you may need additional water to offset your fluid loss. Follow these helpful hints to ensure

• July, August in Florida can be brutal • Heat illnesses can befall the most fit

proper hydration before, during, and after physical activity.

Drink 17-20 oz. of water two-to-three hours before physical activity. Drink 7-10 oz. of water every 10-20 minutes during physical activity. Drink 16-24 oz. of water for every pound of body weight lost after physical activity. Water is the best option for replacing fluids; however, sports drinks can help replenish electrolytes such as sodium and potassium. Only opt for sports drinks before, during or after high-intensity physical activity exceeding 45-60 minutes and follow these tips: • Select sports drinks with 110 milligrams (mg) sodium and 30 mg potassium per 8 oz. • Consider sports drinks with 200 mg sodium per 8 oz. and added electrolytes if you are an excessively salty sweater, meaning you can see or feel salt on your skin when

your sweat dries. Tips for hydrating: You can get water from fruits and vegetables such as oranges and celery, but you get most of it from the fluids that you drink. To help meet your daily hydration needs, follow these tips: • Make hydrating a priority – carry a water bottle to drink on the go. • Choose water over sugarsweetened, caffeinated or alcoholic beverages. • Add lemon, lime or cucumber to your water to enhance the taste. Proper hydration can improve your health, enhance your performance and replace fluid loss following physical exertion. Remember to meet your hydration needs by drinking water throughout the day. Once you’ve identified your needs based on the information above, pour yourself a glass of water and start drinking to your health.

Hyperthermia, heat injuries strike quickly By Patrick Gordon Naval District Washington Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Summer heat can be a joy to some and burden to others. Whether relishing in the warmth, or trying to avoid it, the rising temperature can wreak havoc on the body. The Red Cross advises being informed of weather conditions and expected heat waves, and to be aware of any personal physical conditions such as heart disease

or high blood pressure that can put a person at higher risk of being affected by a heat related emergency. If a local heat advisory is in effect, avoid or postpone outdoor activities and stay inside, preferably in air conditioned spaces. Wear loose-fitting clothing; drink water. If a person is affected by a heat emergency, they will display certain tell-tale symptoms. Heat exhaustion is characterized by cool, moist, pale, ashen or flushed skin; headache; nausea; dizziness; weakness and exhaustion. Heat stroke – usually caused when heat exhaustion is

If signs of heat stroke occur, immediately call 911 and begin cooling the victim. Cool them by immersing the victim in cool water or covering them in cool, damp towels, rotating the towels frequently. If they are alert, give the person sports drinks or water at a rate of a half cup every 15 minutes.

Jokes & Groaners Blazingly bad jokes Q: What does a bee do when it is hot? A: He takes off his yellow jacket. It was during a heat wave in July one summer when I saw this sign on a telephone pole. “Garage sale this Sunday, 7 a.m. until 100 degrees.” It’s so hot – the soup company has changed the directions on its cans to “Just pour and eat.” It’s so hot – All the water buffalo at the zoo evaporated. It’s so hot – I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking. It’s so hot – You discover that it only takes two fingers to drive your car. “Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.” – Sam Keen

The First Tee of Northwest Florida’s Golf & Life Skills Training Facility is now open at the former Warrington “Goofy Golf� site, 3924 W. Navy Blvd, Pensacola.

From Laura McCullers

T

he 36-hole former “Goofy Golf� miniature golf course in Warrington is open again, with a new focus.

The First Tee of Northwest Florida acquired the property in spring 2016 as its headquarters and training facility. The First Tee is a nonprofit that teaches youth golf and life skills. The public will be able to pay fees to play miniature golf or rent the facility when classes aren’t in session. Fees will go directly to support The First Tee’s youth programs in Northwest Florida. Military, student, senior and member discounts are offered. Once completed, participants of The First Tee will have full access to all areas of the facility. “Miniature golf is just part of what we will use to teach the game

of golf to our area youth,� said Marty Stanovich, executive director. “You can improve your putting by playing miniature golf, but our longterm vision is to have a facility where youth can work on all aspects of the game, including life skills and academics.� The organization is still renovating areas of the 1.4-acre facility on Navy Boulevard. Built in 1958, The First Tee is converting the batting cages into a driving range, and is soon to break ground on a chipping green and practice bunker. The final phase will add a floating golf ball driving range into West Jackson Lake under a partnership/agreement with Escambia County.

Numerous area companies have donated to the project, providing free windows, carpet, cleaning and more when the nonprofit purchased the property. “The community has really turned out to support us,� Stanovich said. “People want to see this program succeed, and for new life to be brought to this historic piece of Pensacola.� For more information or hours of operation visit www.thefirstteenwfl.org or call 456-7010. About The First Tee of Northwest Florida: The First Tee of Northwest Florida is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit youth development organization whose mission is to impact the lives of young people by promoting character development and life-enhancing values through the First Tee’s “Life Skills Learning Experience� and the game of golf.
