VT-10 wins SecNav Safety Excellence Award By Lt. Jordan Brown VT-10 PAO

T

he secretary of the Navy recently announced that the Wildcats of Training Squadron 10 (VT-10) were the recipients of the 2012 SecNav Safety Excellence Award, marking two consecutive years of outstanding aviation safety. VT-10 is the Navy’s and Marine Corps’s primary training squadron for naval flight officers (NFOs), an essential weapon in the naval aviation arsenal. Training of NFOs is accomplished in the T-6A Texan II and the T-39 Sabreliner aircraft based out of NAS Pensacola. In the last calendar year, VT-10 has flown a total of 17,247 T6 and T-39 flight hours with zero flight or ground mishaps. Additionally, in both 2011 and 2012, the Wildcats were awarded

the CNO Safety Award as well as the Adm. John H. Towers Flight Safety Award, which is given annually to the naval air training command squadron that has NAS Pensacola’s Training Squadron 10 soars: the Wildcats of VT-10 are the recipients of the 2012 SecNav Safety achieved the best Excellence Award for aviation training.

NETC requesting reservists as instructors By Ens. Jacqui Wengler NETC PAO

Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced July 2 that there are still more than 200 opportunities for Navy reservists to help shape the future of the U.S. Navy as instructors at training commands across the NETC domain, and reservists are encouraged to act early for best selection of billets. The commands include Recruit Training Command

(RTC) in Great Lakes, Ill., as recruit division commanders (RDCs) and as shore duty instructors for various “A” schools, as well as Navy Military Training Instructors (NMT) at the Training Support Center (TSC) Great Lakes. These opportunities were broadcast to reservists via the GovDelivery system, a communication system that ensures the dissemination of information to the Navy Reserve component, earlier this week. Prospective personnel are ad-

vised to begin the application process and seek out information from training sites. “Fleet readiness begins with quality training and investing in our Sailors’ learning and development increases our mission readiness and strengthens our nation,” said Katrina Chancellor, NETC workforce planning analyst. “We have funds available and want to encourage more appli-

Sequestration impacts onboard NAS Pensacola By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

The National Naval Aviation Museum has joined the sequestration casualty list aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). Officials have announced that the museum will be closed on Mondays through Sept. 30 in order to absorb re-

ductions resulting from federal furlough. The museum’s new operating hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, go to www. naval aviation museum. org. Because of automatic budget cuts that are part of sequestration, one-day-a-

week furloughs – involuntary unpaid time off – began July 8 for Department of Defense (DoD) employees. The furloughs are scheduled to continue through the end of the fiscal year, for a total of 11 days. Furlough-related changes in operating hours have been previously been announced for other facilities that offer

Vice chief to fleet leaders: Preventing sexual assault begins with you From Vice Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – In a message to flag officers, commanding officers, and officers in charge, Vice Chief of Naval Operations (VCNO) Adm. Mark Ferguson highlighted Navywide accountability for sexual assault July 8. The message from Adm. Mark Ferguson explains the Navy will soon announce policies and programs to address sexual assault across the fleet and sets the expectation Navy leadership will do everything they can to prevent the crime. “Sexual assault ruins lives, divides teams and erodes trust. As leaders, we must provide our Sailors a responsible, professional, and safe environment in which to work and live,” said Ferguson in the message. Ferguson told fleet leaders that preventing the crime of sexual assault starts with command climate. They must create atmospheres of trust and confidence that ensure Sailors can report sexual assault or sexual harassment without fear of retribution or retaliation. He also stressed that once victims report crimes, it is the responsibility of the chain of command to ensure victims receive the appropriate level of care and support. Award from page 1

Command climate has a role in not only reassuring victims, but in sending a message that committing sexual assault will not be tolerated. “We must reaffirm our commitment to our shipmates, and our actions must make clear to potential perpetrators of this crime that they will be held appropriately accountable,” Ferguson said. Telling leaders “this is our issue to solve,” he reminded them they are accountable for: • Ensuring all Sailors are treated with dignity and respect, • Incorporating sexual assault prevention measures into their commands, • Providing responsive victim support, • Ensuring all unrestricted sexual assault allegations are promptly reported to NCIS and investigated, and • Holding offenders appropriately accountable. In the near future, the Navy will announce additional policies and programs to address sexual assault, including a continued effort highlight the responsible use of alcohol. The goal of these programs is to promote safe living and working environments across the Navy. Get more information and resources to combat sexual assault at www. sapr. navy.mil.

Mabus congratulated the recipients in his AlNav released July 2. “Safety and risk management are indispensable to effectively prepare for and complete our mission, whether at home or deployed in harm’s way,” Mabus stated. “Your safety accomplishments are proof positive of your mission safety command culture and your commitment to each other, to safety excellence, to the nation, and to the Department of the Navy as a

world class safety organization. You have justly earned the right to fly my SecNav Safety Flag for the next year. My personal congratulations to all SecNav Safety Excellence Award recipients.” The recipients will receive a plaque, citation and the SecNav’s Safety Excellence flag at a presentation taking place at the command level. Recipients have the right to fly the SecNav Safety Excellence flag for one year. The Safety Excellence Awards were established in 2002 by Gordon R. England, who twice served as SecNav. It is the Department of the Navy’s premier tribute to commands and programs that promote the safety of our Sailors, Marines and civilians, and protect our aircraft, ships and facilities from mishap.

New citizens swear in ... More than 20 students from Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) become United States citizens during a naturalization ceremony at Pensacola’s federal courthouse June 26. A significant difference from many citizenship ceremonies that take place throughout the United States is that the new American citizens had already sworn allegiance to the United States and protect its freedom when they became United States Navy Sailors. “Being an American citizen is not a prerequisite to join the American armed forces, but service in the American armed forces is a path to citizenship,” said Capt. Jim Daniels, NATTC’s commanding officer. “For these Sailors, their path to citizenship brought them from many different parts of the world and walks of life, but it culminated in their decision to join the United States Navy and become American citizens.” Photo by AMSC Richard Keillor

Navy committed to responsible marine research By Rear Adm. Kevin Slates Director, Engergy & Environmental Readiness Division

P

resident Barack Obama recently issued a proclamation that declared June 2013 as National Oceans Month. Among other things, the proclamation recognizes the vital role that oceans play in supporting our economy, providing food and energy, and enabling national security. The proclamation calls upon Americans to do our part to maintain the oceans today and for the future. The proclamation also touches on the National Oceans Policy, in which the Navy participated, describing a focus on better decisionmaking through science and data sharing. The Navy is pursuing permit renewals for the continuation of our training and testing off the East Coast, Southern California, Hawaii and in the Gulf of Mexico through 2019. These activities are designed to prepare our ships, submarines, aircraft and Sailors to perform our national security mission, which – as an organization that operates forward at sea 24 hours a day, seven days a week – means we are constantly interacting with the

ocean environment. We consider ourselves to be stewards of the environment, both at sea and ashore. To do this responsibly, we have to incorporate scientific data in how we analyze our potential effects. The Navy has made a significant investment for this purpose, committing more than $250 million to marine mammal monitoring and marine mammal research projects during the past decade. The results of these research efforts, which range from defining hearing thresholds for marine species and using and improving radio tagging for tracking marine mammal movement and physiology, to creating more accurate mathematical models for predicting how marine mammals perceive sound, have contributed

greatly to our understanding of how human activities may affect marine life. Recently, a team of researchers from private, academic and Navy labs completed a pilot “fast and light” marine mammal behavioral response study on our Southern California Offshore Range using new, highly compact equipment that can be deployed from small rigid hull inflatable boats. Past behavioral response studies used much larger systems that required significant space on large research vessels and more personnel to deploy and operate. Using this compact and less expensive equipment, the researchers at the Southern California Offshore Range attached data tags to two whales and tracked the animals’ responses to various sounds in an effort to predict how they may

react to sonar and other manmade sounds. This month, this team is planning a different type of behavioral response study in coordination with Navy ships, using actual sonar signals from the Navy vessels. This will be the first time this type of study has ever been attempted. We’re excited and proud to support this type of cutting-edge research and look forward to seeing the results. As mentioned in the spring issue of Currents, the Navy’s Living Marine Resources Program recently announced six priority areas for marine research funding from FY 20132014. The Navy is currently reviewing pre-proposals from research organizations to meet those needs, and plans to request formal proposals in July. As we continue to work with the National Marine Fisheries Service to finalize our

permits in the coming months, I fully expect critics to debate the effects of our training and testing activities on marine life. While we may not agree on those issues, we can agree that the oceans are important to all of us. Furthermore, I believe the Sailors who depend on this vital training and testing to meet our national defense mission deserve – and would appreciate – acknowledgement that the Navy is a responsible steward of the environment based on what we know about the oceans. We will continue working closely with federal agencies, science institutions and other partners in the United States and abroad to develop new science to increase our understanding and guide our decision making.

Junk boat divers: Past and present By MC3 Nicholas S. Tenorio

K

EY WEST (NNS) – In a U.S. Navy fleet of aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines and amphibious assault ships, it’s a curious question how salvage vessels acquired the nickname “junk boats.” “Back then, there was more importance – and money – put into warfighting ships,” said Ciardiello. “When salvage vessels needed repairs or replacement parts, they had to find them in the junkyards.” Either way, the nickname stuck.

As with any good sea story, there are multiple accounts of its origin. An undisputable fact about junk boats, however, is that salvage vessels, such as the USNS Grasp (T-ARS-51), have long operated as a platform for Navy divers. According to the captain of the USNS Grasp (T-ARS-51), Peter Long, the term junk boat is a historic legacy from early salvage operations. “In the old salvage days, salvage ships would attempt to recover what they could from wreckage sites,” said Long, a civilian mariner with the Military Sealift Command (MSC). “If they couldn’t bring it back in total, they brought back as much as they could. And so, they came back with a lot of ‘junk.’ ” NDCS Russell Ciardiello, master diver of Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit (MDSU) 2, Company 1, reports a slightly different version.

Doctors graduate from NHP family medicine program By Jason J. Bortz Public Affairs Officer, Naval Hospital Pensacola

A

fter three years of hard work and studying for boards, six residents from Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) graduated from the Family Medicine Residency Program June 28 and are now ready to be family medicine physicians in the Navy. “I am very proud of this group of residents,” said Lt. Cmdr. Leah Soley, residency program director at NHP. “They are amazing and probably our strongest class in my four years here.” Naval Hospital Pensacola is one of five family medicine teaching hospitals in the Navy. All residents are medical school graduates, and during their first year of residency, they are referred to as interns. Joining the six residents were seven graduating interns who must still complete the remaining two years of the residency program. Graduating interns have the option of immediately continuing their residency program or they can elect to serve as a flight surgeon or in undersea or general medicine before completing their residency. “Being an intern is the hardest year in the life of a doctor,” said Capt. Maureen Padden, commanding officer, NHP, who completed her internship

Throughout all three years, residents are exposed to the full scope of family medicine and serve as primary care managers for patients within NHP’s Family Medicine Medical Home Port. They treat patients of all ages and see a variety of health care scenarios in both inpatient and outpatient settings including pediatrics, surgery, internal medicine, gynecology, psychiatry, orthopedics, dermatology

and neurology. It is not uncommon for a resident to be the one who tells a patient she is pregnant, deliver the baby and provide care for the mother and infant after the birth. This wide range of health care knowledge is what attracted many of the residents to family medicine. “As a family medicine resident, I was exposed to everything, and I wanted to do it all,” said Lt. Daniel Algert, a graduating resident who will be reporting to USS Eisenhower (CVN 69). “I would be on call on the labor deck, go help in the emergency room, go over to the intensive care unit and then listen to a mom concerned about her child. We have a great program here and

(the staff) prepared us well for a family medicine career in the Navy.” One of the advantages these residents had doing their residency at NHP was the exposure to patient-centered care, also known as Medical Home Port. Naval Hospital Pensacola’s Family Medicine Residency Program was the first DoD facility to pilot the Medical Home Port, a team based approach to primary health care where patients are assigned to a specific team. The team reviews all of the patient’s medical needs and ensures that anything required for the patient is addressed during the appointment, including booking referrals and giving needed immunizations.

Understanding Medical Home Port was not only an advantage for the residents, but will benefit all of Navy medicine when the residents report to new commands with this knowledge. “They are now experts at Medical Home Port,” said Soley, “and they will be expected to help lead the implementation of Medical Home Port at their next assignment.” Despite the long hours and lack of sleep, these new family medicine physicians are now prepared for whatever their next assignment will be in Navy medicine. “I learned a lot and had great mentors,” said Algert. “I feel like I am ready for family medicine.”

All Navy bases were required to execute a SAPR standdown by July 1. Following a Navy-mandated curriculum, the SAPR standdown was lead by the commanding officer, executive officer and command master chief, and focused on discussing command climate and defining what sexual assault, harassment and sexism are and how to identify them. The SAPR standdown is not the Navy’s first attempt to increase awareness of prevention efforts aimed at combating sexual assaults in the armed forces. Recent SAPR training included April’s SAPR-F and SAPR-L training, as well as “no zebra” training in May. SAPR-F, or “fleet” training, was designed for first class petty officers and below and emphasized the need to eradicate sexual assault and promote positive change within the command climate. SAPR-L, or “leadership” training was designed for chief petty officers and above, with the goals of raising awareness of the challenges posed by sexual assault and giving leaders the tools and techniques to address them. “No zebra” training was performance-based training in which performers acted out scenarios of sexual assault, harassment, and domestic violence. The training stressed bystander intervention, and that these behaviors will not be tolerated. According to Kristen Klein,

the Sexual Assault Resource Coordinator (SARC) at Whiting Field, the theme behind all of this training is the same. “The message is that sexual assault is everyone’s issue, not just the victims themselves,” Klein said. “It has a ripple effect on coworkers, commands, and mission readiness as well.” History: The Department of the Navy initially established their program to combat sexual assault under the title Sexual Assault Victim Intervention (SAVI) in 2005, with the goals of preventing sexual assault, encouraging increased reporting of the crime, and improving response capabilities for victims. SAVI stressed prevention through education on risk reduction, but now focuses on holding offenders accountable, what to do when someone encounters a sexual assault scene, and how to stop such occurrences from happening in the first place. The subsequent name change from SAVI to SAPR reflects the program’s shift to emphasize treatment, support and system accountability. Additionally, SAPR is a Department of Defense-wide program name, which demonstrates Navy’s program realignment with DoDwide goals. Program offerings: The SAPR program is run by certified victim advocates and Sexual

Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) who receive a minimum of 40 hours of training. Applicants must pass a background check, submit two letters of recommendation and pass an interview. New SAPR guidelines are encouraging all victim advocates to become nationally certified. Victim advocates stand watch, meaning that they are on-call and available via cell phone after normal business hours to ensure that victims have a point of contact at all times. In addition to military victim advocates, a civilian victim advocate was introduced on base in order to provide better availability for potential victims. A victim advocate’s first priority is to ensure victims are aware of all the options available to them. “The point is to give victims time to digest everything and understand their options before it goes to the next level of command or NCIS is notified,” explained Klein. The victim advocate acts as the victim’s primary resource point of contact, making certain that they have the proper support, including crisis intervention, counseling, medical and investigative resources, depending on the victim’s wishes. SAPR in the news: Recently, sexual assault in the military has seen a great deal of media atten-

Support Our Troops

tion. While the 2011-2012 annual report of sexual assault in military showed an increase in the total number of sexual assault cases, it also demonstrated an increase in reporting of sexual assault. And the reporting of such cases is what the Navy is striving for, Klein said. “We would like to see that they felt comfortable (enough so) that they could come forward and report it.” Discussing the recent media attention, Klein also noted that it’s not necessarily all bad. While the events themselves don’t reflect favorably upon the military community, it does illustrate that general awareness about SAPR and the intolerance of sexual assault is increasing, Klein noted. “Hopefully this will continue to raise awareness and give people more confidence in making reports. It can be intimidating for victims to make reports for a variety of reasons: fear of being judged, fear of the offender, fear that their case won’t be handled well, or because they think it’s their fault. The attention shows that the media and the public are taking this seriously, because it is a very serious issue, and may help victims feel more comfortable coming forward.” The media attention may also lend itself to giving victims greater faith that something may

be done about their case, which will hopefully lead to an increase in the percentage of assaults that are reported. While SAPR does not encourage victims to choose restricted or unrestricted reporting, they do strive to make sure all victims feel safe enough to talk to a victim advocate. “We want to make sure the victim is informed, without taking away their power of choice,” she stated. Officials with Whiting Field Fleet and Family Services are currently looking to expand the Victim Advocate Program, and are striving for a representative from each command on base to best meet victims’ needs. Interested persons are encouraged to apply with FFSC. FFSC will be hosting a SAPR training session for new Victim Advocates Aug. 26 through 30 at NAS Whiting Field. Whiting Field’s SAPR resources are based in the FFSC building. In case of emergency, the victim advocates can be reached at (850) 554-5383, and the SARC can be reached at (850) 499-5810. Additionally, the DoD Safe Helpline, a comprehensive resource for confidential support and information, can be reached at safehelpline.org, by calling 1 (877) 995-5247, or by texting 55-247.

ightning: What you know can save your life

From http://www.lightningsafety.noaa.gov

L

ightning is fascinating to watch but also extremely dangerous. In the United States, there are about 25 million lightning flashes every year. Each of those 25 million flashes is a potential killer. Florida is the “lightning capital of the United States,” with more strikes than any other state. Understanding the dangers of lightning is important so that you can get to a safe place when thunderstorms threaten. If you hear thunder – even a distant rumble or a crackling aloft – you are already in danger. While lightning fatalities have decreased during the past 30 years, lightning continues to be one of the top three storm-related killers in the United States. In addition, lightning injures many more people than it kills and leaves some victims with life-long health problems. How thunderstorms develop: All thunderstorms go through stages of growth, development, electrification, and dissipation. Thunderstorms often begin to develop early in the day when the sun heats the air near the ground and pockets of warmer air start to rise in the atmosphere. When these pockets of air reach a certain level in the atmosphere, cumulus clouds start to form. Continued heating causes these clouds to grow vertically into the atmosphere. These “towering cumulus” clouds may be one of the first signs of a

developing thunderstorm. The final stage of development occurs as the top of the cloud becomes anvil-shaped. How lightning forms: Lightning is a giant spark of electricity in the atmosphere or between the Lightning Safety Awareness Week was June 23-29. Most people are struck by lightning before or just after a atmosphere and the storm. Why? Because they wait too long to seek shelter or go back outside to soon.

350th CACOM Soldiers celebrate United States Army’s 238th birthday By Spc. Marsha Wood 350th CACOM UPAR

The 350th Civil Affairs Command (CACOM) Soldiers, unit alumni, local citizens and other service members from the Department of Defense celebrated the United States Army’s 238th birthday with a ball in Pensacola June 1. The “Army Birthday Ball” has been a long standing tradition within the Army’s community, where Soldiers across the world celebrate the birth and history of the United States Army, which was established June 14, 1775. The evening started off with a social hour prior to the formal receiving line. The receiving line was manned by Brig. Gen. Mark McQueen, commanding general, 350th CACOM; his wife, Karen; the commander of Delta Company, 344th Military Intelligence Battalion (cohosts of the event), Capt. Benton Parson; his wife, Leah; and the evening’s guest speaker, retired Col. Danny McKnight. More than 200 guests were in attendance and they were treated to a display by Delta Company’s honor guard for the color presenta-

a joint flavor with members of the local Marine Corps detachment and Air Force personnel in attendance. Additionally, musical support was provided by the members of the a cappella choral group from Naval Air Station Pensacola Naval Education Training Center, who performed renditions of “The Star Spangled Banner,” Ray Boltz’s “Fallen, Not Forgotten,” and then lead the assembled attendees in the “Army Song.” One of the highlights of the evening was a traditional

cake-cutting ceremony, which was done by the youngest and oldest Soldiers at the ball. At this year’s event Pfc. Rebecca Malcorps of Delta Company (born in 1994) joined Lt. Col. (Dr.) William Paull, who came into the Army in 1976. The evening’s guest speaker, Col. McKnight, as the battalion commander for 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment in Somalia in 1993, was the basis for the book and movie, “Black Hawk Down.” McKnight regaled the audience with humorous and thoughtful anecdotes on command, leadership and patriotism. “Having Col. McKnight as our guest speaker was such an honor, and highlight of my night; not only was he a humble Soldier and leader, but a comedian too,” said Spc. Nicholas L. Bodis, a civil affairs specialist, for Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 350th CACOM. “I’m fairly new to this unit, so it was nice to meet new faces, have a good evening dining and socializing with the friends I’ve already made, and enjoy the Army’s birthday with all of the Soldiers of the 350th CACOM.”

Pen Air Federal Credit Union (FCU) employees have been contributing funds throughout the year to support Ronald McDonald House of Northwest Florida as part of the credit union’s “Jeans for Generosity” employee charitable giving program. Employees participate by allocating a portion of their payroll check to a designated charity. All Pen Air FCU employees participating in “Jeans for Generosity” are granted additional “casual dress days” throughout the year in order to show-

case their support for giving back to community organizations. “Jeans for Generosity” was estab-

lished by Pen Air FCU’s Charitable Events Committee with a mission to expand Pen Air FCU’s community support for charitable organizations and causes. Employees were surveyed to determine which charities they would be most interested in supporting through this charitable giving program. This year, employees raised a total of $5,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida and Pen Air FCU matched the total employee contributions dollar-for-dollar. Funds raised through the “Jeans for Generosity” campaign have allowed Pen Air FCU the opportunity to sponsor a room for one year at the Ronald McDonald House and provide additional funds to support the organization’s day-to-day expenses for its residing families.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida, 5200 Bayou Blvd., serves as a home-away-fromhome and source of respite and resources for more than 20,000 children and families’ children suffering a medical crisis. “It’s truly fulfilling to see the overwhelming support of our employees taking part in this charitable giving program. ‘Jeans for Generosity’ is just one more way for Pen Air Federal Credit Union to expand its community support,” said Stewart Ramsey, Pen Air Federal Credit Union president and chief executive officer, Pen Air Federal Credit Union is dedicated to giving back to the community in which it serves, following the credit union philosophy of “people giving back to people.”

Blue Angels missing from air show lineup From Santa Rosa Island Authority

A number of civilian aircraft will be performing aerial acrobatics over the Gulf of Mexico during the Pensacola Beach Air Show, today, July 12, and tomorrow, July 13. The Santa Rosa Island Authority (SRIA) organized the event to replace of the annual Blue Angels beach show after the team was grounded from performing for the rest of the season due to federal budget cuts. Admission is free and the show will feature 24 aircraft that will be flying from 1 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. each day, said Buck Lee, SRIA executive director. Planes scheduled to fly include: • Extra 300SHP flown by Kevin Coleman, who at 21 years old is one of the youngest air show celebrities in the world. • The MX2, the latest in unlimited aerobatic aircraft, will be flown by Gary Ward. • Prometheus flown by Skip Stewart, an aerobatic champion who has won several gold medals in regional competitions and two Pitts Trophies. • The Beech T-34 Mentor flown by Lima Lima, one of the world’s original six aircraft civilian formation aerobatic flight teams. Lima Lima stresses precision formation flying from the six ship wedge and double arrowhead to the basic fig-

ure four and diamond formations. • Red Star & The Dragon, a team of war birds that perform 800 mph head-on merges. Red Star is a Viper-29 and The Dragon is a BAC-167 Strikemaster. • Otto the Helicopter, flown by Roger Buis of Pensacola, performs a low-level, choreographed act set to music. The act demonstrates agility and maneuverability of helicopter flight and features some special treats for children, such as blowing bubbles. • Team Aero Dynamix (formerly known as Team RV), the world’s largest air show team, combines precision formation flying and formation acrobatics. In addition to the air show, the

SRIA will present a free concert featuring The Tams at 7 p.m. tomorrow, July 13, at Casino Beach Gulfside Pavilion. The vocal group from Atlanta is known for such 1960s hits as “Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy,” “What Kind of Fool,” “I’ve Been Hurt” and “Untie Me.” The Tams toured with Jimmy Buffet during his 1999 “Beach House on the Moon” tour and they recorded “Flesh and Bone” together. Beach officials are already thinking about next year’s air show. “We hope next year the United States Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, The Blue Angels, will be able to return for our air show, as they will surely be missed this year,” Lee said.

Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away. The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff.

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows a victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services and safety interventions such as a Military Protective Order (MPO), separation from offender, expedited transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim can report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), SARC, and his/her CO shall commence an investigation. Restricted reporting allows a confidential report, which does not trigger either command nor law enforcement notification and the victim can have a SAPR VA, and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim can disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care provider and/or a chaplain.
