Residency program comes to a close at NHP By Jason Bortz NHP Public Affairs Officer

Forty-four years after the Family Medicine Residency Program at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) was created, the final six residents completed their residency June 30 at a ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola.

The ceremony marked the official closure of the program at NHP that graduated approximately 300 residents since its inception in 1972. Throughout their three years at NHP, the residents were exposed to the full scope of family medicine and served as

Anyone who visits downtown Pensacola will see the public art phenomenon that is “Pelicans in Paradise.” There are more than 70 giant pelicans, all individually created for their sponsoring organizations. Pensacolans collect miniature versions for their mantles and pose for photos in front of the iconic birds. On the corner of Palafox and Garden streets, “Wild Blue,” the U.S. Air Force Pelican, has resided for a number of years amongst other fellow military Pelicans. In November of 2014, Wild Blue suffered a tragic blow at the hands of a hit-and-run driver. For the last year and a half, members of the Air Force community raised funds to restore Wild Blue, but unfortunately progress had reached a standstill until one day this past February. Maj.

the residents to family medicine. “Unlike physicians who specialize in a specific organ, organ system, disease or focus of procedures, a family physician is uniquely trained to care for the patient as a whole person,” said Rear Adm. Kenneth Iverson, commander, Navy Medicine East, and a prior graduate of NHP’s Family Medicine Residency Program. “The clinical specialty of family medicine is patient centered, evidence based, family focused and problem oriented. Family physicians focus on the physician-patient relationship and integrated care. Their scope is broad and extends from newborn to geriatric care of both genders. Family physicians not only treat diseases, they take care of people.” Significant previous graduates from NHP’s program, in addition to Iverson, include Warren Jones, former president of the American Academy of Family Physicians; and Richard Jefferies, a retired rear admiral and former medical officer of the Marine Corps. In 2012, the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery completed an analysis of nine CONUS inpatient facilities to address shifts in beneficiary populations and rising health care costs. One of the recommendations from that study was to consolidate Naval Hospital Pensacola’s Family Medicine Residency program to other existing Family Medicine Res-

idency Programs at Naval Hospitals Camp Pendleton, Calif.; Camp Lejeune, N.C.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and a joint service program at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, Va. “The decision to close Naval Hospital Pensacola’s Family Medicine Residency program was not made lightly,” said Iverson. “It was reached as part of Navy Medicine’s ongoing efforts to optimize care and training based on the unique patient mix in the geographic areas we serve. Moving for-

ward, there will be no reduction in the amount of family medicine physicians we graduate, just in the amount of programs we offer.” While the closure of the FMRP marks the end of NHP as a hospital for family medicine residents, patients visiting the hospital will not notice a difference in care.

The 359th TRS is a technical training school for initial skills on non-destructive inspections, aircraft structural maintenance and low observable aircraft maintenance. One of their missions is to train new maintainers on the use and repair of composite materials. Habben connected with Kenny Brown, an instructor at the 359th TRS and together they realized that the majority of the repairs could be made by their instructors. During the next three months, instructors of the 359th TRS dedicated a large portion of their off-duty hours to repairing the Air Force symbol to its former glory. On June 24, everyone’s hard work and dedication came to fruition during an unveiling ceremony at the Mustin Beach Club. Col. John Edwards, commander of the 479th Flying

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. 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.

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

Labor and Delivery Clinic for child births. “The Family Medicine Residency Program has been part of Naval Hospital Pensacola for the past 44 years,” said Capt. Sarah Martin, commanding officer, Naval Hospital Pensacola, “and we have graduated almost 300 residents to be family physicians in the Navy over that time. While we are going to miss having residents at the hospital, our patients can be confident they will continue to receive the same great care and services they have always received here.” This year’s graduates were Lt. Cmdr. Justin Deskin, Lt. Cmdr. Brett Lessman, Lt. Rebecca Allen, Lt. Maya Payne, Lt. Andrea Wurzer and Lt. James Writer. Established in 1826, Naval Hospital Pensacola’s mission is to provide patent centered superior quality health care to those it is privileged to serve. The command is comprised of the main hospital and 10 branch health clinics across five states. Of its patient population (more than 150,000 active and retired Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, guardsmen and their families), almost 58,000 are enrolled with a primary care manager and a Medical Home Port Team at one of its facilities.

Training Group, presided over the ceremony. “People know Pensacola as a Navy town, but many don’t realize that we have over 1,500 airmen stationed throughout NAS Pensacola, Corry Station and Whiting Field,” Edwards said. “This Pelican represents our Air Force presence in Pensacola and the support that this community provides to all of our military who live in this great city.” Following Edwards’ remarks, the instructors who had repaired Wild Blue removed the parachute that had covered the newly renovated bird. Amongst the thunderous clapping of Pensacola airmen, the instructors of the 359th TRS posed to take the first photos with Wild Blue. Now the Air Force pelican has been returned to his nest on the busy corner in the center of downtown, all five branches of the military are once again represented in downtown Pensacola. NASP’s Air Force personnel encourage you to stop by and take a photo with Wild Blue.

Longing for a bored and barefoot, lazy summer day By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist


ying the laces of my red Converse shoes, which did not quite match my pink polyester halter top, I couldn’t contain my excitement. It was a hot summer day in 1975, and I was going to the pool. My Kool-Aid backpack – bought with collected labels and saved allowance – was stuffed with my bathing suit, a beach towel, a rainbow headband with a really cool transparent visor, and enough coins to buy a raspberry snow cone at the snack bar. My mother agreed to drop me off after setting her hair, and I couldn’t wait to get out of our neighborhood. Since school had let out a few weeks prior, I’d had enough running through sprinklers and playing with Baby Tender Love to last an eternity. Mom put a scarf over her pink plastic rollers, applied a bit of orange lipstick, and we were off. Unbelted in the front seat of our station wagon, I craned my neck out the window to escape the smoke of her Tareyton 100s. It was the 1970s after all. Everyone’s

mom lit up back then. Even if they didn’t show it on TV, it was assumed that Shirley Partridge and Ann Romano hadn’t kicked the habit, and Caroline Ingalls was probably puffing Charles’ pipe while he was off fishing. Hues Corporation’s “Rock the Boat” crackled on the radio as we pulled up the pool entrance. As I slammed the simulated-wood-paneled door, my mother called, “See you at 4 o’clock, dumpling.” That day, I perfected my underwater handstand, braved the high dive, made a friend, got whistled at for running and found a dime. By the time mom picked me up, my skin was wrinkled and I was seeing chlorine rainbows around every light. The next day, I was back to sprinklers and Baby Tender Love. Aside from a week at church camp and a visit from

She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. my cousins, my summer was a continuously running loop of the same activities – popsicles, sprinklers, bare feet, pools, dolls, fireflies and many minutes staring out the window,

wondering what to do. While I was bored and barefoot on those summer days, my mother had plenty of time to garden, nap on her chase lounge, paint with watercolors, can vegetables, crochet groovy afghan squares and smoke. Today, by contrast, summer is pretty much the same as the rest of the year, except hotter. We set the alarm every morning for sports practices and driver’s ed. We order books for school summer reading programs. We register our kids for online summer classes. We’re always late for music lessons. We throw dinner together last minute, we forget to put the car windows up before it rains, we never get around to dusting. There’s no time to be bored because there’s too much going on. Halfway through the summer, we realize that we’ve haven’t been to the base pool. We never got around to doing that beading project we saved for summer. There was no opportunity to take an afternoon nap. That tomato seedling we bought at the base PX garden center has dried and shriveled from neglect. When did the lazy days of

summer turn into summer break at breakneck pace? Why does it go so fast when it used to last forever? Why are family vacations so exhausting these days? Does anyone grow vegetables in gardens anymore, much less can them? Will I ever be able to stare out the window again? The first day of summer (summer solstice) was June 20, but you would never know it from our crazy schedule. Summer used to be a time of relaxation, when the most difficult task was figuring out how to spend the day. Nowadays, a must-do-it-all mentality has crept into our family lives, robbing us of a much-needed break. This summer, we should make a pact. Let’s discipline ourselves to forget to set the alarm. Skip practice. Unplug the computer. Cut up a watermelon, with seeds for spitting. Turn on the sprinkler. Doze off while sitting in a lawn chair. Pitch a tent in the backyard. Grill hot dogs. Play cards. Catch fireflies. Lie in a hammock and look at the Moon. I know we can do it. With lots of hard work, we can be lazy again.

Navy unveils National Museum of the American Sailor From Naval History and Heritage Command Communication and Outreach Division


REAT LAKES, Ill. (NNS) – The Great Lakes Naval Museum was officially renamed the National Museum of the American Sailor during a ceremony and sign unveiling at the museum July 4. The Navy’s top enlisted Sailor, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) (AW/NAC) Mike Stevens, was joined by retired Rear Adm. Sam Cox, director of Naval History and Heritage Command, North Chicago Mayor Leon Rockingham, Capt. James Hawkins, commanding officer of Naval Station Great Lakes, Jennifer Searcy, director of the National Museum of the American Sailor, and representatives from the Great Lakes Naval Museum Foundation and National Museum of the American Sailor Foundation to unveil the new sign in front of the museum. “Dedicated to telling the story of anyone who has ever worn the Navy uniform, this building will do more than house history,” said Cox. “The National Museum of the American Sailor will stand as a place for Sailors, Navy families and proud Americans to learn more about the Navy that serves them by using the history and experiences of our Sailors as the basis for its exhibits.” Cox and Stevens shared the news of the name change with attendees of the Naval Station Great Lakes July Fourth Celebration with a speech and video presentation Monday evening. The National Museum of the American Sailor name change

signals a shift in vision from a regional focus to one that depicts the diverse history of Sailors who have served in the U.S. Navy. The name change also reflects the interest of museum visitors, many of whom travel from across the country to attend the basic training graduations at the Navy’s Recruit Training Command. “What may appear as a simple name change to some, for me, marks a recommitment to my shipmates that as a Navy, and as a nation, we honor the service and sacrifice of all American Sailors,” said Stevens. The National Museum of the American Sailor currently features exhibits on life in Navy boot camp, naval uniforms and traditions, the history of Naval Station Great Lakes, the role of diversity in the Navy and the role of women in the Navy. During the next two years, the museum will expand its exhibits to introduce visitors to the overall history and role of the U.S. Navy and the experiences of American Sailors in the past and today. “I am very excited for this ‘new’ museum, and I welcome you all to visit. Our nation’s history would not be the same if it were not for the millions of American Sailors who have served in the United States

Navy,” said Cox. The museum is located in Bldg. 42 just outside the perimeter of Naval Station Great Lakes. Bldg. 42, known as Hostess House, was built in 1942 and served as a visitors and reception center for almost one million American Sailors who came through Great Lakes during World War II. The former Great Lakes Naval Museum was dedicated Oct. 26, 1996, in Bldg. 158 and opened to the public Oct. 13, 1997. It became an official Navy museum in Bldg. 42 in 2009, joining the Naval History and Heritage Command museum enterprise. The National Museum of the American Sailor is one of 10 museums in the naval history enterprise. Other museums include: • National Museum of the United States Navy (Washington

Navy Yard, D.C.). • National Naval Aviation Museum (Pensacola, Fla.). • Hampton Roads Naval Museum (Norfolk, Va.). • United States Navy Seabee Museum (Port Hueneme, Calif.). • Submarine Force Library and Museum and Historic Ship NAUTILUS (Groton, Conn.). • Naval Undersea Museum (Keyport, Wash.). • Puget Sound Navy Museum (Bremerton, Wash.). • Naval War College Museum (Newport, R.I.). • United States Naval Academy Museum (Annapolis, Md.). The Naval History and Heritage Command, located at the Washington Navy Yard, is responsible for the preservation, analysis and dissemination of U.S. naval history and heritage. It provides the knowledge foun-

dation for the Navy by maintaining historically relevant resources and products that reflect the Navy’s unique and enduring contributions through our nation’s history and supports the fleet by assisting with and delivering professional research, analysis and interpretive services. NHHC is composed of many activities including the Navy Department Library, the Navy Operational Archives, the Navy art and artifact collections, underwater archeology, Navy histories, 10 museums, USS Constitution repair facility and the historic ship Nautilus.

Navy’s mass communication specialists celebrate 10 year anniversary By MC1 Peter Lewis and MC2 Charlotte Oliver, Defense Media Activity

FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. (NNS) – Navy mass communication specialists from around the globe gathered at the Defense Information School (DINFOS) on Fort George G. Meade in Maryland, June 30, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the MC rating. On July 1, 2006, four Navy media ratings – photographer’s mate (PH), journalist (JO), illustrator draftsman (DM) and lithographer (LI) – were merged, establishing the mass communication specialist, or MC, rating. Chief of Information (CHINFO) Rear Adm. Dawn Cutler congratulated the MCs on 10 years of continued excellent, in a written statement, which was read by

Lt. Cdr. Cynthia Fields, DINFOS Navy Element commander. “I am incredibly proud of what you all have accomplished in these past 10 years,” Cutler’s message read. “Your creativity and your ability to communicate – to tell compelling Navy stories – amazes me. Your professionalism, your dedication to the Navy mission, and love for the craft is evident by all who see your work. Keep setting the course and the pace. Happy 10th anniversary, MCs.” Retired MCC Terry Cosgrove, who served as the senior enlisted advisor (SEA) to CHINFO at the time of the MC merger, served as the event’s guest speaker. He gave words of advice to the next generation of mass communication specialists. “To the MCs that are in attendance, those of you that are in school and work-

ing your way through the system, you’re about to embark on the greatest journey of your life,” said Cosgrove. “It’s really a rare and privileged opportunity to be the person that gets to see that from the inside and record those stories and put them out so that the audience – which is the American public – can see them.” MCCM Jon McMillan, CHINFO’s current SEA, then spoke about of the rating’s enduring importance to the Navy. “Throughout time, no matter what technological revolution occurred, humans have relied on stories to teach, motivate and inspire,” said McMillan. “So, no matter what happens in the near or far future, the Navy will always need talented storytellers. The tools may change over time. The focus of our efforts may also change, but the need for the story does not. So happy anniversary, MCs.”

When then-Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Mullen made the announcement of the rating merger in 2006, it brought together knowledge and talent from thousands of Sailors into one rating. PHs led in the visual arts. Their images hang on walls in government buildings across the globe. JOs served as writers and the original Navy news anchors, videographers and radio DJs. That colorful, detailed image of your command crest was most likely designed by a DM. From layout to print to the production of mission essential forms, air plans, flight packs, plans of the day, and qualification booklets, the LI was responsible. Today, the MC does all this and more.

As we deliver the seventh ship, we continue

to effectively build upon the production efficiencies of this class, and I look forward to carrying them into each subsequent ship.” Carson City and other ships of the EPF class are capable of operating in shallowdraft ports and waterways, interfacing with roll-on/roll-off discharge facilities, and on/off-loading a combat-loaded Abrams Main Battle Tank. The EPFs include a flight deck for helicopter operations and an off-load ramp that allows vehicles to quickly drive off the ship. With the ship now delivered, the civil-

ian mariner crew will begin moveaboard and certification prior to beginning a post-shakedown availability and final contract trials later this year. Upon completion of those events, the ship will join the fleet for operational tasking. Carson City will be owned and operated by the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command. Austal is currently in production on USNS Yuma (EPF 8) which is planned to launch later this year, and USNS City of Bismarck (EPF 9). Fabrication of the USNS Burlington (EPF 10) began June 7.

Feds Feed Families program now underway Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Marissa Tungjunyatham NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs


aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) launched its fourth consecutive year of the Feds Feed Families (FFF) campaign earlier this month. In coordination with the Bay Area Food Bank, the ongoing program collects food for the less fortunate in the local area and will run through Aug. 31. The Command Religious Program at NAS Whiting Field worked with with Commander Naval Installations Command (CNIC) to implement and coordinate the charity on base. In 2015, NAS Whiting Field collected 1,772 pounds and $120 in donation, which fed 638 families and provided 1,894 meals. The goal this year is to surpass what was collected last year. Like previous years, the NASWF Command Religious Program partnered with the NAS Whiting Field Commissary by selling $5 and $10 pre-wrapped bags of groceries. To ensure patrons are aware of the drive, commissary cashiers will ask each customer during checkout for a possible donation or purchase of the pre-made grocery bags. In addition to the commissary’s collection efforts, NAS Whiting Field’s Command Religious Program placed donation bins in centralized locations for easy access and

pick-up. They are located at the Command Bldg. 1401, Training Air Wing Five, the chapel and the commissary. The bins will be picked up once a week until the end of the campaign or whenever the bins are full. During the summer months, food banks notice a decrease in donations and an increase in need. “People often forget to donate because summer is not a cold and bitter season,” Training Air Wing Five Chaplain Lt. Roy Fondren said. “But the need is still there.” Feds Feed Families launched in 2009 as part of President Barack Obama’s United We Serve campaign, and according to usda.gov, since its beginning, federal workers have donated and collected nearly 57.2 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families across America. Agencies in every state

were asked to set their own goals and beat their previous best. In 2015, federal employees donated 17.9 million pounds, which beat the previous 2014 record of 14,849,380 pounds. “We are passionate about the practical blessing of a good meal,” Fondren said, “Nearly 17 percent of our local community struggle with hunger – and that’s 17 percent too many. By God’s grace, we will participate in changing the reality of our community members.” If there are any questions or concerns surrounding the drive, members of NAS Whiting Field’s religious services would be more than happy to assist.

Whiting Park provides summer fun for NASWF team By Lt.j.g. Benjamin Ziemski NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

The warm summer months have arrived, and Whiting Park, operated by Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s (NASWF) Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) team, is ready to help Whiting Field’s personnel take full advantage of the long, sunny days. Located on the bank of the Blackwater River, just north of downtown Milton, Whiting Park offers swimming, beach volleyball, a playground, boat ramp, fishing pier and picnic areas. The park also offers pavilions that can be rented up to 90 days in advance, at $30/day for the small pavilions and $40/day for the large.

One of the biggest draws to Whiting Park is the large number of boats available at affordable prices. The park offers pontoon boats, jon boats, skiffs, ski boats (and the associated equipment), canoes, paddle boats, paddle boards and kayaks. “We have something for everybody,” said Seth Helms, the recreation aide for the park. Boat rental prices range from $5 per hour for a jon boat to $35 per hour for the new pontoon boats, and the customer is also required to pay fuel costs as well. On a short cruise on one of the park’s pontoon boats, Helms pointed out many interesting natural features of the river. Ospreys, turtles, hawks, bald eagles and sport fish such as largemouth bass and gar all call the river home.

Whiting Park makes visiting the Blackwater River as simple as it can get. Proof of completion of a boater safety course must be provided if renting any craft with more than 12 horsepower, but there are no requirements for humanpowered craft, or those with less than 12 horsepower. Rental rates vary based on type of vessel, but are much lower than renting elsewhere. Regular visitors to Whiting Park can expect some changes. Due to the increased security measures Navywide, a valid ID must be presented to use the facilities or rent equipment. Military members, civilian personnel and contractors at NASWF are all authorized to use the facilities at Whiting Park.

The operating hours of the park have also changed recently. The current hours for the park are: Friday-Monday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and closed on Thursday. For more information, or to make a reservation for a boat or pavilion, call (850) 623-2383. To drive to Whiting Park: Follow Highway 90 East through downtown Milton across the Blackwater River. Turn left onto Johnson Road and then left on Hay Lo Drive, which dead-ends into the park. The drive takes less than five minutes from downtown Milton. “I have the best job in Milton,” Helms said, “There’s all kinds of nature out here, and we make it really easy for people to get out on the water.”

Avoid a thirsty fate ...

Hydrate! By MC3 Jeffrey Madlangbayan USS George H.W. Bush

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


SS GEORGE H.W. BUSH (CVN 77) (NNS) – As temperatures continue to rise, so do the chances of heat related injuries. Sudden changes of temperatures make the risk of dehydration especially dangerous if a Sailor doesn’t drink water often. Lt. William Burrell, a physician assistant from the medical department, recommends Sailors drink two to three liters of water a day to remain hydrated under normal conditions. “Hydration is one of the most important factors we have to deal with every day, especially in the hot environment we are operating in,” said Burrell. “Since many of us are not accustomed to a hot environment like this, we may need to triple the normal amount to stay hydrated.” HM2 Brian Prendingue, from the ship’s medical department, explains how dehydration occurs and how easy it is to lose water in a hot environment. “Dehydration occurs when the amount of liquid a person loses is more than the amount they gain,” said Prendingue. “When performing demanding tasks, such as working in a hot machinery room or on the flight deck, it is easy to get hot. The body’s natural response is to re-

gain normal temperature by sweating, which causes the body to lose vital water.” Just like a plant needs water to develop and survive, the human body also needs the right amount of water for maximum performance. There are many aspects that determine how much water a person should drink. “Environmental factors, such as high temperatures or humidity, cause the body to produce more sweat,” said Burrell. “Each individual’s body composition and chemical balance determines the amount of water that person needs. More water must be consumed to compensate for sweating and the effects of consuming substances such as caffeine or aspirin, which trigger the kidneys to release extra water.” One of the most common effects of dehydration is heat injuries, which include heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Each is more severe as dehydration becomes more prolonged. “When we’re dehydrated, the body can’t regulate its temperature properly, and that re-

sults in heat injuries,” said Burrell. “Plus, the lack of water makes it difficult for our bodies to get rid of the things that we don’t need, and this keeps us feeling unbalanced and unable to properly function.” Staying hydrated also in-

volves knowing how much water you have in your own body. Burrell recommends that Sailors constantly keep track of how much water they have in their body. “You may not know if you’re in a constant state of dehydration, which is dangerous because dehydration can sneak up on you,” said Burrell. “If you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated and need water.” Prendingue adds that it’s important for Sailors to recognize how dehydrated they are. Mild stages of dehydration will result in an unclear urine color and include thirst, dry mouth and skin, and fatigue. “Moderate to severe dehydration includes dark yellow urine, headache, moderate to extreme fatigue, vomiting, dizziness and fainting,” said Prendingue. “Additionally, dehydration may progress to the severe level slowly, from days or weeks without enough water.” For mild to severe dehydration, Prendingue said the most efficient way of determining degree of dehydration is by urine color. “We teach everyone about urine color for severity of dehydration,” said Prendingue. “The darker the urine, the worse off you will be.” When consuming liquids other than water, Prendingue recommends that Sailors should reduce their intake of caffeine and carbonated liquids, because they do more harm

than good to the body. “Beverages like coffee, tea, soda and especially energy drinks do not hydrate,” said Prendingue. “Instead, they dehydrate. Intake should be limited to no more than one to two of these beverages a day, along with drinking adequate amounts of water.” Burrell adds that it is OK to consume drinks other than water, as long as you remain hydrated. “Although water should be consumed more than any other liquid, the body relies on other substances as well, such as electrolytes, in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle,” said Burrell. “Electrolytes, commonly found in fruit juices and sports drinks, can affect and regulate the hydration of the body, as well as help carry out bodily functions.” Sports drinks contain high levels of electrolytes, and should be consumed along with water. Burrell recommends drinking plenty of water with a sports drink, since it is made for replenishment rather than rehydration. “Water is the best fluid to drink to stay hydrated, and maintain a good, constant energy level and a healthy sleep cycle,” said Burrell. “Proper hydration must always be part of a healthy lifestyle, along with eating healthy and working out.” For more news from USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), visit www.navy.mil/local/cvn77/.

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. “Hyperthermia is caused by a failure of the heat-regulating mechanisms of the body to deal with the heat coming from the environment,” said Kim Calvin, program assistant at the National Institute on Aging. “(Heat emergencies such as) heat fatigue, heat syncope – sudden dizziness after prolonged exposure to the heat – heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke are all forms of hyperthermia. These conditions can pose special health

risks for older adults, and can increase with the combination of outside temperature, general health and individual lifestyle.” 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 light, loose-fitting clothing, and drink plenty of water. For those without air conditioning in their homes, public facilities such as libraries and malls offer free entry to an air conditioned space to spend time during the warmest parts of the day.

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 ignored – is a life-threatening condition characterized by extremely high body temperature; red skin which may be dry or moist; changes in consciousness; rapid, weak pulse; rapid, shallow breathing; confusion; vomiting; and seizures. 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.

CID instructors selected for naval intelligence community awards By MC3 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Dominance Public Affairs

Three information warfare (IW) community service members teaching for the Center for Information Dominance (CID) enterprise were among those recently selected for the 2016 Naval Intelligence Community Awards, as announced in NavAdmin 112/16. The two Sailors and one Marine were among the 22 service members and civilians selected from the naval intelligence community to be recognized for their outstanding leadership and performance of duties. CID’s selectees include IS1 Martin P. Hernandez and ISCS Timothy J. Moran, assigned to CID Unit Hampton Roads; and Gunnery Sgt. Charles A. Wallace, assigned to CID Unit San Diego. Hernandez received the Cmdr. Dan F. Shanower Intelligence Specialist of the Year Award, which recognizes intelligence specialists for their performance, leadership, special accomplishments, and overall contribution to command efficiency, morale and welfare. “I am truly honored to receive this award, and I know that without the teamwork and contribution of my leaders and Sailors, I would not be receiving this today,” said Hernandez. “I am

being recognized for the achievements of my command, the time and effort my mentors have invested in me, and my mentorship towards junior Sailors and staff members.” Hernandez’s selection was based on his delivery of 1,250 hours of instruction to 575 students, while also leading 13 instructors in revising 480 hours of intelligence specialist curriculum and creating 63 lessons and 17 tests. “Petty Officer Hernandez is a true Navy professional, an outstanding instructor and mentor to the Sailors in Intelligence Specialist ‘A’ School,” said Capt.

Mark Kester, commanding officer of CID Unit Hampton Roads. “His commitment to developing the ‘total Sailor’ is based on superior professional performance, focused training, and personal interest in the quality of life of all personnel.” Moran and Wallace both received the Vice Adm. Rufus L. Taylor Award for Excellence in Intelligence Instruction. “It is a great honor to receive this award, as it is affirmation as to the high-caliber Sailors and Marines I enjoy the privilege of leading and instructing alongside daily,” said Moran, who leads 30 instructors for the 21-week Ma-

rine Air Ground Task Force Counterintelligence/Human Intelligence (HUMINT) course. They provided 17,840 hours of expert instruction to 133 activeduty and reserve component Sailors and Marines during 2015. “Senior Chief Moran has played a critical role in developing Navy and Marine Corps human intelligence professionals, a skill set in high demand across the joint force,” said Kester. “While providing firstclass instruction for a course highly regarded by the HUMINT community, Senior Chief Moran has also demonstrated he is a leader who mentors with an unstoppable passion for seeing Sailors and Marines succeed.” Wallace also expressed his gratitude for winning the award, saying while he was not looking for an award for his efforts, being recognized as an outstanding instructor made him feel like his time at CID Unit San Diego was put to good use. “Being an instructor has been a great experience for me both personally and professionally,” said Wallace. “Personally, it has given me an opportunity to further my education and meet people from different walks of life. Professionally, I have been exposed to naval intelligence and the unique approach the Navy takes to problem sets, which I

will be able to carry on and apply in my Marine Corps career.” Wallace instructed nine out of the 11 intelligence courses offered at CID Unit San Diego and taught 82 percent of all students attending intelligence courses in 2015. As course supervisor for amphibious readiness groups attending the Information Warfare Team Trainers, he ensured that the course ran smoothly while supervising a team of seven enlisted personnel and three civilians. He instructed and facilitated 18 team trainers, completing 525 team trainer instructor hours. “Gunnery Sgt. Wallace embodies the excellence in instruction that this prestigious award seeks to acknowledge,” said Capt. Miriam Smyth, commanding officer of CID Unit San Diego. “He is a clear standout at my command, teaching in almost every intelligence course that we offer at CID Unit San Diego.

Vets pitch ideas after learning about business From University of West Florida

The Florida Small Business Development Center (FSBDC) at the University of West Florida (UWF) recently hosted a business plan competition to conclude its inaugural Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program, an training initiative for veterans in the state of Florida seeking to start their own businesses. The program – piloted by UWF, in conjunction with the FSBDC Network and Military Veterans Resource Center – opened in March to more than 80 veterans. The first phase included online training, and the second involved three week-

ends of direct business training, mentoring and an optional business plan competition. Bradley Cantrell of Fort Walton Beach won the competition with “Happy Hour Ice Cream,” an alcohol-infused ice cream parlor with non-alcoholic options also available. Robert Fuszner of Pensacola came in second place with “StarChip Computers,” a solution for cybersecurity and com-

puter aging issues. Lee Hinman of Panama City was the thirdplace winner with “eMarket Places,” an improved search mechanism to find various, highly rated service contractors. “The program educated me on the business model canvas where I learned how to research my ideas and find out if they were feasible,” Cantrell said. “The pitch was by far the most challenging component, but also the most valuable, because I now know what was missing from my plan.” The competition gave participants the opportunity to hear comments and critiques from the judges and advice from program mentors, helping to bol-

ster their ideas. “My business model changed due to direct feedback and reflection,” Fuszner said. One of the judges for the competition said he was impressed with the overall program and the plans pitched for consideration. “Simply preparing for a competition like the Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship business plan requires a significant level of commitment, learning, practice, thought and courage,” said Rick Duke, founding director of the UWF Center for Entrepreneurship. “Regardless of the outcome, the value to them was the experience, which likely took them outside

their comfort zone.” Veterans Florida, the Florida SBDC Network, the UWF Military Veterans Resource Center and other partners in the program held a closing session in Tampa June 27-28, where administrators discussed the program’s future and opportunities for expansion. The Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program is available to veterans who are active duty or have been honorably discharged; reside in Florida or plan to locate to Florida; and demonstrate an interest in entrepreneurship. The program is provided at no cost. For more information about the program, contact sbdcmarketing@uwf.edu.

From Visit Pensacola


housands flock to Pensacola Beach each July for the annual air show featuring the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration squadron, the Blue Angels. This year, fans will have multiple opportunities to catch a glimpse of the famous flight team in action, despite fears that the beach show would be canceled. The Blue Angels temporarily stood down and canceled three weekend shows after Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss was killed a June 2 crash in Smyrna, Tenn. In a city with deep military roots, few things arouse more pride than the sight of the Blues soaring high above the Gulf of Mexico. Naval Air Station Pensacola, which is

known as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation” for training generations of airmen. It also is the home base for the Blue Angels. This year is also special because the team, which started in 1946, is celebrated its 70th anniversary. The schedule for the beach show includes: • July 13, Breakfast with the Blues: Beach visitors can enjoy breakfast while waiting for the Blues to pass overhead at 8 a.m. • July 14-15, Blue Angels practice shows: Two practice runs for the Blues are sched-

uled for 2 p.m. July 14 and 2 p.m. July 15. A dress rehearsal for the airshow’s civilian acts will start at noon July 15. • July 16, the official show will begin at noon. The line-up includes the Redline Sports Team flying RV-8 speed demons; Gary Ward flying the MX2, a high-speed aerobatic aircraft; Kevin Coleman flying a one-of-a-kind Extra 300SHP; and Skip Stewart flying a biplane that roars and races. Fat Albert, a C-130 Hercules that flies support for the Blue Angels, will kick off the Blue Angels performance at 2 p.m. After the beach show, the Blue Angels will be traveling to out-of-town air shows for the rest of the season, which ends Nov. 11-12 with the 2016 Blue Angels Homecoming Show at NASP.

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling.
