NAS Pensacola dog handler team receives two distinct achievement awards

Story, photo by Greg Mitchell NAS Pensacola Public Affairs

Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola’s Military Working Dog (MWD) Kennel recently received the distinction of being selected as the 2019 K-9 Kennel of the Year, and MA2 William Rogacki received the honor of being the 2019 Military Dog Handler of the Year.

“This award was based off of the efforts of personnel from 2018 that were here,” MA1 John Melendez, kennel master at NAS Pensacola said. “The kennel master during that timeframe was MA1 Roberto Garcia. It takes a whole kennel to make dog teams and this is what was allowed MA2 Rogacki to become the No.1 handler within the region. Through See Best K-9s on page 2

2019 DoD Warrior Games’ senior athlete learns new meaning of ‘Still in the Fight’ By Cmdr. James Stockman Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

After 10 days of blood, sweat and tears, the 2019 Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games, hosted by U.S. Special Operations Command in Tampa, Florida, concluded June 30. For a Las Vegas, Nevada native and the game’s oldest and most senior participant, being a member of the 40-person Team Navy was a culmination

of months of rehabilitation and hard work. “My selection to Team Navy earlier this year was a bit unexpected given how recent my injury occurred, but it was an incredible honor to represent our Navy,” said Rear Adm. Kyle Cozad, commander, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), who suffered an injury in spring 2018 causing him to adapt to wheelchair mobility. “The motto of this year’s Warrior Games

was ‘Still in the Fight’ and I saw firsthand the spirit and

inspiration of adaptive athletes who put aside age and rank to perform at their personal best levels.” Cozad competed in four DoD Warrior Game events – wheelchair tennis, seated shot put and discus, rowing and hand cycling – earning a gold medal in the men’s seated discus. “As a ‘rookie,’ I really did not have any expectations of earning a medal,” Cozad said. “Given the fact that just over a year ago I was still in the hos-

pital and unable to roll over in bed without assistance, that medal presentation was pretty motivating.” However, Cozad pointed out that the DoD Warrior Games is not about winning or the final medal count. The games are more about having an opportunity to demonstrate how you have physically improved, building self-confidence and showing others what you can See Warrior Games on page 2

Mentorship ride promotes motorcycle rider safety From Jane Bush NASP Safety Department

On June 26, motorcycle riders from the Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) embarked on an annual mentorship ride from the hospital to Navarre and Pensacola Beach. More than 15 riders participated in the event, which included riders from other local commands. See Motorcycle on page 2

Student naval flight officers (SNFOs) assigned to the “Warbucks” of Training Squadron (VT) 4 onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola are using a training aid that has significantly impacted students’ comprehension, skillsets and performance during their Advanced phase of undergraduate training. Naval flight officers (NFOs) specialize in airborne weapons and sensor systems. They are not pilots, but may perform many co-pilot functions, depending on the type of aircraft. They start their initial training at NAS Pensacola with Initial Flight Screening and Aviation Preflight Indoctrination courses. They then begin primary flight training in the T-6A Texan II aircraft, after which they are assigned one of two career paths, Strike Fighter or Advanced Maritime Command and Control: • Strike Fighter • F/A-18F Super Hornet Strike/Fighter

• E/A-18G Growler Electronic Attack • Advanced Maritime Command and Control • E-2C/D Hawkeye Airborne Early Warning • P-8A Poseidon Maritime Patrol • EP-3E Aeries II Airborne Reconnaissance • E-6B Mercury Take Charge and Move Out (TACAMO). SNFOs selected for Strike-Fighter go through the advanced syllabus flying the T-45 Goshawk with the neighboring “Sabrehawks” of VT-86. SNFOs selected for Advanced Maritime Command and Control go through the VT-4 advanced syllabus flying a simulator. VT-4’s Multi-Crew Simulator (MCS) is a series of Canadian Aviation Electronics (CAE)-designed crew stations that sport interactive software capable of running a series of scenarios programmed by instructors. It was designed to facilitate the training of basic NFO skillsets, something VT-4 Commanding Officer Cmdr. Chris Brown, a native of See VT-4 simulator on page 2

NAS PENSACOLA: 2019 KENNEL OF THE YEAR Best K-9s from page 1 the teams’ overall training and mission readiness throughout the entire year of 2018, they were able to develop themselves into the number one kennel in Navy Region Southeast.” Rogacki agreed. “Receiving the Handler of the Year award is gratifying, but I know there are better handlers out there,” Rogacki said. “I am sure that my volunteering for as many assignments as possible contributed to my selection but I would not have been able to receive this award without the support of my peers who have helped me throughout as a handler.” Throughout the course of 2018, Rogacki was a part of security details with the secret service, traveling all over the United States, to include overseas. He worked directly for the Secretary of Defense, the First Lady, Vice President and President. “It was really exciting to be a part of those assignments,” Rogacki said. “It was definitely a valuable learning experience for me.” Rogacki was joined by Lilly, a 6-year-old female German shepherd. He has since moved on to a new partner, a 3-yearold male German shepherd named Fello. “Connecting with your dog is very important and the bond that you have with them is vital

because they feed off of your energy and your emotions,” Rogacki said. “Whatever mindset you have, the dog will have. If you are stressed, the dog is stressed. When you are in control, the dog is in control. When a situation appears to get out of control, you have to be calm because you are responsible for yourself and your dog. It’s like you are one in the same.” Dog handlers all begin learning their trade as a part of the 341st Training Squadron, located at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

Adaptive sports and more specifically, Warrior Games are a perfect opportunity to establish and meet those goals.” According to Cozad, the DoD Warrior Games and adaptive sports provide an essential opportunity for any wounded, seriously ill or injured service member to integrate into an established program that encourages personal goal setting, fitness, individual recovery and most importantly, interaction with other individuals with similar medical conditions or injury recovery challenges. “For many, the games and adaptive sports provide an essential opportunity for purpose and help overcome the inevitable psychological hurdles associated with coming to terms with very different ‘new normal,’” Cozad said. “The face-to-face interaction and personal relationships with other wounded warriors is what I consider the ‘secret sauce’ – learning lessons and recovery techniques from those who have been in the program for some time. There is no replacement to having someone who has ‘been there, done that’ as a personal mentor along the path of

ing Dog Breeding Program, which provides working dogs to every branch of service and numbers among the largest military breeding programs in the world. All master-at-arms attend a nine-week “A” School for rate-specific training then either proceed directly to the fleet or on to Dog Handler “C” School for 13 weeks. During the course, handlers are taught basic training techniques and how to interact with their canine. Even though various breeds are used, the favored choices are German shepherds or Belgian Malinois. This is due to

recovery and reintegration.” Cozad noted that the most overlooked aspect of the Wounded Warrior program is the family and caregiver support that is essential to any recovery and reintegration effort. The Navy Wounded Warrior program provides family support that includes resources, networking and educational opportunities. “I know in my case, when I returned home from nearly six weeks of hospitalization, my wife became a combination of nurse, personal assistant and caregiver,” Cozad said. “During those first few weeks, I could not get out of bed without her help. She was literally forced to put her life on hold to help me at home in a 24/7 capacity. Every other wounded warrior has a similar story – whether that caregiver is a spouse or parent; they play an invaluable role that is often overlooked in this program.” Approximately 300 wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans participated in the 2019 DoD Warrior Games. Cozad and Team Navy athletes represented the more than 4,000 Sailors and Coast Guardsman with a serious illness or injury who are currently receiving support through the Navy Wounded Warrior program. Since its creation, the program has coordinated the non-medical care and resources for more than 8,500 Sailors and Coast Guardsmen and their families and caregivers.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer – Capt. Timothy Kinsella Jr. Public Affairs Officer – Jason J. Bortz 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 biplane 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 one of the

Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 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, 314 North Spring St., Suite A, Pensacola, Fla. 32501, in the interest of military and ci-

their overall superior ability to perform a multitude of tasks, consisting of explosive, drug or patrol training, specialized mission functions for the Department of Defense (DoD) and other government agencies. Dogs are initially acquired from numerous places throughout the United States, to include parts of Europe. They are selected through the procurement process where they test on different abilities that they are able to demonstrate while they are still young puppies. Some of the dogs will “wash out” of training if they do not meet military require-

VT-4 simulator from page 1 Desoto, Texas, said is a critical component of the NFO training pipeline. “VT-4 is the only training squadron in CNATRA (Chief of Naval Air Training) that utilizes simulators for 100 percent of our training,” he said. “We employ the MCS to teach basic skill sets for all ‘big wing’ NFOs. Our training curriculum harnesses highvelocity learning (HVL) concepts to ensure we are training the best NFOs in the world. This specialized training prepares SNFOs for operating their specific weapons systems and airborne platforms in the fleet.” VT-4 trains SNFOs to be integral assets in their respective aircraft communities. At the squadron, SNFOs attend the six-month-long Advanced Maritime Command and Control Course (MC2), studying topics including international and military flight planning, sensor employment and tactical communications. Upon successful completion of the course, students are then required to implement the learned techniques and procedures in the MCS, combining the multitude of sensors with a significant emphasis on crew resource management. “The MCS teaches basic NFO skillsets – it teaches them how to use a radar, an electrooptic camera or how to use a datalink, skill-

ments. For those who are able to complete their certification, they are sent out to the fleet for work. According to scientific research, a dog’s nose possess up to 300 million olfactory receptors, compared to about six million in humans. And the part of a dog’s brain that is devoted to analyzing smells is, proportionally speaking, 40 times greater than humans. Because of this, dogs can detect narcotics, explosives, illegal currency, gas leaks, arson accelerants and illegally imported food. Mendez said that it takes an exceptional individual to be a part of a team that significantly impacts the Navy’s mission by working behind the scenes in what he considers to be the best and most rewarding job in the Navy. “Those guys that are pounding the pavement, they are the ones who don’t get recognized and that is definitely a huge part of being a dog handler,” Mendez said. “You need to have self-fulfillment and be selfmotivated in order to be a dog handler. You don’t become a dog handler for fame, trophies and awards; that’s not going to come. You do it literary for the challenge. Once you get the knack of it there’s no better job in the United States Navy. If you can’t fly a fighter jet, there’s nothing more self-fulfilling than being a dog handler.”

sets that all ‘big wing’ NFOs need to learn,” Brown said. “Now we’re teaching these foundational skillsets that each of these communities use and need before they move on to the schoolhouses, something which benefits the fleet through reducing attrition.” Although simple in appearance – six “crew stations” through which SNFOs are observed and either a VT-4 or contracted instructor supervises – the number of scenarios the simulator produces is significant. The system can generate scenarios that range from supporting a carrier strike group strait transit to assisting a disabled cruise ship, all drawn from real-world scenarios that NFOs have encountered, according to Lt. Celesse Hidrovo, the VT-4 Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance stage manager and assistant training officer. “The nature of our simulator allows the flexibility to adapt to changes in the fleet and implement that here with our students and to ultimately provide a better NFO to the fleet,” Hidrovo said. The MCS was conceptualized in 2014, with CAE contracted to design a training mechanism incorporating basic NFO taskings. The result was the current MCS, launched as part of the VT-4 curriculum in September 2015. More than 650 NFOs have completed this training to date, with positive feedback from fleet replacement squadrons (FRS) and the fleet.

Amy Branstetter spoke briefly, wishing the riders a good and safe ride. The “Blessing of the Bikes” was performed by Lt. Cmdr.

ey, Mom, what’s up?” Lilly appeared on my smartphone screen after I clicked the video call icon. Now that she was a freshman in college, we tried to talk at least once a week. About the columnist “Oh, not much,” I said, hearing a jumble of voices in the background. “Where are you, anyway?” “At the library,” she said. A very good sign, I thought. “My friends and I came here before class.” Lilly showed the girls piled onto the couch beside her. She wasn’t studying. She was eating a salad, hanging out with friends, and printing her Spanish paper. Oh well, good enough. We chatted about the usual things – how exams were going, boys, her plans for summer, this and that. Knowing that I was meeting a friend for coffee in an hour, I carried the phone with me while I multitasked, throwing the ball for

our dog Moby, folding clothes, emptying the dishwasher, picking an outfit to wear. “Well, Lil, I’d better go get in the shower,” I said after we’d talked for thirty minutes. “No, Mom! Can’t you take the phone with you?” she said. “In the shower? The phone will get wet!” “Please! Just put it on the ledge outside the shower, I’ve done it before.” Lilly didn’t have anything specific to talk about, but I wasn’t about to shut her down. Since Lilly had left for college, we’d been worried about her. For the first time in her eighteen years, she wasn’t happy. This was a foreign concept to our family. Lilly had always

As the content third child, she rarely stopped to ask, “What about me?” It was time for Lilly to talk about herself, and I would need to listen. When I was young, I didn’t have these conversations with my own mother, though I loved her dearly. She worked as a

first-grade teacher, she cooked and cleaned, and created a warm home. She was creative, introducing my brother and I to arts and enriching activities from a young age. Our modest home was most definitely loving, but we didn’t talk much about thoughts, feelings, fears or dreams. Strangely, now that I am an adult, my mother and I talk frequently about everything. I once remembered that she had never discussed the “birds and the bees” with me, and I asked her why. “Well, I, I,” she stuttered, trying to remember her state of mind so long ago, “back then, experts said wait for children to ask questions, and be prepared. So, I went out and bought the Life Cycle books, and waited for you to ask. But you never did.” I felt compassion for my mother, trying her best using her stoic German butcher’s upbringing tempered by her sincere intentions. She was right. I never approached her with questions about life. I’d learned the technical stuff in awkward middle school classes. But I was missing the rest – the this and that. The subtle exchange of seem-

ingly mundane thoughts that somehow provides answers to the questions that swirl through adolescent minds. Why do I feel bad about myself all the time? Are you proud of me? Is it normal to be afraid to go to college? Do I need a boyfriend? Can I trust my friends? What if I fail? Am I good enough? When Lilly begged me to continue our call during my shower, how could I refuse? Our chat continued from my shower, to my closet, to my car, where Lilly described her project poster, her friend Molly, and her salad in minute detail. “You’re making me hungry,” I said, pulling up to the coffee shop where my friend waited in the parking lot. Scanning for the right combination of words to not make her feel insignificant, I began, “Uh, Lilly, I’m really sorry, but I have to …” “Mom, I gotta go! Love you!” Lilly blurted, and I heard a cacophony of laughter before the video blinked out. In our hour-and-a-half conversation, no crucial questions were asked or answered, no deep philosophies were discussed. But, like mortar between the bricks, the mundane this and that would help Lilly build a strong foundation.

NEWPORT NEWS, Virginia (NNS) – The Navy recently announced changes to its Tuition Assistance (TA) program via NAVADMIN 114/19. This NAVADMIN may have a direct impact on Sailors serving aboard the Nimitzclass aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73). “There aren’t many changes to the program, but the changes that were made are significant,” PS3 Vicky Dougherty, a personnel clerk aboard George Washington said. “One thing to know is that although eligibility is changing, and funding is running out for the fiscal year, any Sailor who is already receiving TA will not be affected this fiscal year.” Dougherty also said that one of these changes could impact TA eligibility requirements for junior Sailors. “With the new NAVADMIN, Sailors must have served two years in the Navy in order to be eligible for TA,” Dougherty said. “That means that fewer junior Sailors will be able to take college classes with TA in the coming fiscal year.” This new criteria is a change to the old program, which mandated one year of service with the option

for the command to issue a waiver for the time served. One such motivation for the change in policy is an understanding of the importance the Navy places on junior Sailors to become qualified warfighters first. “We have many very junior Sailors maxing out TA usage at a time in their Navy career when they should be focused on warfighting and warfare qualifications,” Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Richard Burke wrote in NAVADMIN 114/19. “While committed to allowing Sailors to pursue off-duty education, operational readiness is the top priority. The Navy is, first and foremost, a warfighting organization. We need qualified and proficient warfighters.” This push to ensure every Sailor is qualified in damage control, maintenance, watch stations, and warfare devices, consistent with their paygrade, is nothing new. Since as early as 2000, the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations has emphasized readiness as one of the top priorities of individual Sailors, commands, and the Navy as a whole. The new TA instruction also decreases the number of credit hours a Sailor can take from the previous 16 hours to the new maximum of 12 hours. “Although it seems like cutting

back on the number of credit hours someone can take is a new idea, it’s actually not,” YN2 Gabriella Kingery, the leading petty officer of George Washington’s education services office said. “The new credit hour limit is actually just a rollback to a previous policy, where the number of hours a Sailor can take was capped at 12 credit hours.” Regardless of limitations on eligibility and the number of hours a Sailor can take, Kingery said it is important for those eligible Sailors to remember the benefits of pursuing higher learning during George Washington’s refueling complex overhaul period. “Our command isn’t going underway, isn’t going on deployments, so our Sailors have more free time,” Kingery said. “They can use this free time to pursue higher education, and by doing so increase their own prospects for their careers both in the Navy and as civilians.” Sailors who desire to continue pursuing courses for the remainder of fiscal year 2019 are advised to contact the Navy College Virtual Education Center (NCVEC) at (877) 838-1659 or via MyNavy Portal (MNP) at https://my.navy. mil/quick-links.html for other options such as the Post 9/11 GI Bill or academic scholarships.

Navy, Marine Corps, Public Private Venture Housing leadership continue actions to correct military housing issues From Commander, Navy Installations Command Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – As part of a continued engagement to address housing concerns, Commander Navy Installations Command (CNIC) hosted a third Housing Public Private Venture (PPV) meeting this year with the companies that provide housing for service members and their families residing in housing overseen by the Navy and Marine Corps. The meeting, which occurred June 19 at Joint Base Anacostia in Washington, D.C., focused on what the PPV housing partners have already done to improve the experience for residents and the companies’ future initiatives. Besides executive level leaders from the eight PPV housing partner companies, Navy and Marine Corps leaders included Mr. James B. Balocki, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Installations & Facilities); Vice Adm. Mary M. Jackson, commander of CNIC; Maj. Gen. Vincent A. Co-

glianese, commander of Marine Corps Installations Command; Rear Adm. John W. Korka, commander of Naval Facilities Engineering Command. In her opening remarks, Jackson thanked everyone for the continued, collective commitment to provide Sailors, Marines and their families’ safe and healthy living quarters. “Everything we do should help improve the ‘Resident Experience,’ ” Jackson said. “The oversight, the processes in place, and the metrics we monitor are all designed to prevent and resolve issues as quickly as possible. The interactions the residents have with the partner property manager, the military housing service centers, and their chain of command are key to creating a culture of accountability.” The Navy has business agreements with Balfour Beatty, Clark, Hunt, Land-

mark, Lincoln and Patrician. The Marine Corps has business agreements with Lendlease and Lincoln. To improve transparency in the work order process, all housing partners now have either a smart phone app or other system that can not only verify that a work order is received, but also provide status updates, and indicate when a work order is closed. The Navy has full access to the privatized housing partners’ maintenance databases and can pull maintenance records when needed. Additionally, both Balfour Beatty and Lincoln are implementing a process in which residents sign for work order completions on mobile devices maintenance technicians carry, much like resident’s do to acknowledge receipt of a package delivery. If the work occurred when the resident was out of the home, the res-

ident has 24 hours to contact the property manager if they would like to keep the work order open. In order to quantify the quality of service work, residents are able to rate their work order experience and provide feedback either through an e-mail survey or the maintenance app. The military housing service center and the partner property managers both receive these scores and include them in reports to partner and military leadership. Outside of the work order process, Balfour Beatty as well as Hunt, and Lincoln have established a 24/7, tollfree hotline where residents can contact corporate management directly to discuss any unresolved concerns. Each PPV housing partner also provided a status update on their company plan to hire more people, especially quality control specialists and maintenance technicians, and/or providing more training to their new and existing employees. The PPV managing members, asset managers and property managers remain

critical partners in providing timely, quality service to Sailors, Marines and their families who choose to live on installations. The primary focus of the Navy and Marine Corps housing teams, in their oversight and advocacy role, is the safety, security and well-being of Sailors, Marines and their families. The Navy and Marine Corps remains personally invested and committed to ensuring PPV housing residents receive the high-quality housing they deserve. If any resident has questions or issues with privatized housing, you can contact Navy housing headquarters at NavyHousingHQ@navy.mil. Those interested in learning more about the PPV housing options can contact their local HSC. HSC contact information is available at www.cnic.navy.mil/ContactHousing.

ur beaches are the best. It starts and ends right there. A day at the beach in northwest Florida has never looked better. And after you have had your fill of sun and surf, we are fortunate to also have a number of worthwhile entertainment destinations, all onboard or within a reasonable driving distance of NAS Pensacola. • Visit the National Naval Aviation Museum. The National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NASP is the world’s premiere naval aviation museum. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard aviation are represented with historic and one-ofa-kind aircraft displayed inside the museum’s nearly 300,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on its 37-acre grounds.

Hangar Bay One, the museum’s newest addition, adds another 55,000 square feet; more than 150 beautifully restored aircraft are part of the collection. A flight simulator inside the museum offers a ride with the Blue Angels or the opportunity to fly an F/A-18 mission; a giant screen theater projects 4K films on a seven-story high screen. The flight line bus tour, a free

Movies show each hour beginning at 9:30 a.m. The last movie shows at 4 p.m. Admission is free. Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, call 1 (800) 327-5002 or visit www. naval aviation museum. org. • Get a dose of history at the forts. The National Park Service (NPS), U.S. Department of the Interior Gulf Islands National Seashore offers Fort Pickens, Fort Barrancas and the Advanced Redoubt (the last two onboard NAS Pensacola). Fort Pickens is the largest of the area forts built to defend Pensacola Bay and its important Navy yard. The fort’s construction was started in 1829, completed in 1834 and served the nation until the 1940s. Built in the age of wooden sailing ships and cannon, Fort Pickens was continually modernized in response to advances in weapon technology.

Fort Barrancas sits on a bluff overlooking the entrance to Pensacola Bay. The Fort Barrancas Area is on Taylor Road about a half mile east from the National Naval Aviation Museum. The tactical advantages of this location have inspired engineers of three nations to build forts. American engineers remodeled the Water Battery in 1840 and built a masonry fort on the bluff between 1839 and 1844, connected by a tunnel to the Water Battery. The Advanced Redoubt of Fort Barrancas was built between 1845 and 1870 as part of a defensive network for the Pensacola Navy Yard. The Redoubt is unique among the early American forts at Pensacola in being designed solely for resisting a land-based assault. Hours: Fort Pickens Area is open daily from 5 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily. Fort Pickens bookstore and museum are open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. The Fort Barrancas Area is onboard NAS Pensacola. A 100 percent ID check is in place; the base complies with the Real ID

Corry Station’s Mike Hawley retires after 54 years Story, photo by Glenn Sircy Center for Information Warfare Training

R

etired Navy CTRCM Mike Hawley, a Corry Station icon and fixture, officially retired from leading and mentoring Sailors in his federal service role June 28. Hawley served the Navy and Sailors for a total of 54 years – 16 of those years in a Navy chief, senior chief and master chief petty officer role – and ended his successful Navy career as a barracks manager onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola Corry Station. Over the years, thousands of previous and current Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station student Sailors and staff members have benefitted from Hawley’s leadership and mentorship. “Master Chief Hawley consistently utilizes his extensive leadership experience to shape and mold the 6,000 Sailors who train at Corry Station each year,” Cmdr. Chad Smith, IWTC Corry Station’s commanding officer shared. “His mentorship has proven instrumental in turning countless troubled Sailors around by instilling the grit and perseverance we need in the next generation. Our Sailors and the Navy are better because of him.

I’m proud to call Mike Hawley a mentor and a friend.” In his most recent position, he led Sailors in maintaining 220 double occupancy rooms, courtyards, perimeter areas, lounges and office spaces that now resemble upscale college campuses. Most importantly, he also served as a mentor and sometimes a father to the Sailors on a daily basis. “Master Chief Hawley’s mantra his whole career has been, ‘take care of your Sailors,’ ” retired Navy CTMCS Tom Priest said. “He not only believed it, he lives it, day in and day out. Mike believed every Sailor deserved it and he demanded it from his peers, those work for him, and those he worked. His guidance and mentorship still resonates in the Navy today and will carry into the future. Every Sailor and officer he has touched holds him in the highest regard and all know they can reach out to him at any time. Mike’s influence was so strong, that this retired senior chief and training supervisor

can say I will not miss Mike as he is in my heart and I will carry on in his honor – taking care of Sailors.” Hawley added he is no stranger to Corry Station. He first attended cryptologic technician (collection) “A” school in 1966, returned for another tour in 1988 and then retired onboard as the command master chief of Naval Technical Training Center Corry Station in 1995. Since retiring from active duty, he continued his legacy of leading and mentoring Sailors as a civilian and veteran. “It’s all about the Sailors and I always share with them that leadership is not about power,

but respect,” Hawley said. “There’s certainly nothing Sailors can’t do, and I’m committed to always help them strive to be and do their best, not only while here, but throughout their careers.” When asked what advice he gives Sailors on how to be successful, Hawley shared, “I look Sailors in the eyes and tell them it is not about you, but it is about your country, your family, about doing the right thing for your shipmates every day. If you think about this every day, you will be successful.” Hawley’s passion comes from doing the right things for Sailors every day.

“Since I was initiated a chief petty officer in 1979, I’ve look in the mirror every day and tell myself to make sure you are squared away and do the best thing you can do for your Sailors today,” Hawley said. “If there is something that needs to be done on base, and you do not know where to start, he is the person to go to,” FC2 Bryan Nunez with IWTC Corry Station shared. “His vast knowledge of Corry Station has led him to help every Sailor, Marine, Airman and Coast Guardsman that has been on base in one way or another. Mr. Hawley has been someone I have gone to for personal advice as well as advice in my naval career. A friend, a mentor, and someone that I strive to be like. Mr. Hawley is someone that will be missed on base but I am sure he will be around to continue helping Sailors.” Hawley will be a missed fixture onboard NASP Corry Station but his memory and legacy here will live well into the future. When asked what he will miss most about retiring, Hawley shared, “The last day when I muster the Sailors and let them know this is the last day I’ll do this and I won’t formally be here for them anymore. That’s going to be the killer for me and it won’t be easy – it’s just not.” For more news from Center for Information Warfare Training domain, visit www.navy. mil/local/cid, www.netc.navy. mil/centers/ciwt, www.facebook.com/NavyCIWT or www. twitter.com/NavyCIWT.

Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victims 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-of-command, 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. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain.

Vintage paintings at the Apple Market

By Kaitlyn Peacock Gosport Staff Writer At the Apple Market, you expect to find certain things. Apples, tomatoes, chicken and even some canned food. What you may not be expecting to find is a small art gallery next to the deli. Surprise! The gallery features several local artists throughout the year, but there’s a very special gallery happening right now courtesy of Apple Market’s tomato vendor Joseph T. Cunningham. They aren’t his artwork, but they did come from his attic. After purchasing the house 22 years ago, Cunningham found paintings left behind from the previous owner. The paintings were from the 1950s

to 1970s; the work of the original builder of the house Fred Gustave Hassebrock. Now, he’s decided to share these incredible pieces with customers of the Apple Market, featuring one of Pensacola’s vintage artists. Hassebrock was born in Missouri in 1903, where he lived with his grandparents for many years. During his school years, he learned half of the time in English and the other half in German. He then moved to Pensacola, where he worked as a farmer. Due to the hard work needed on the farm, he stopped attending school, but there was one thing he never stopped. He sketched, he drew and he painted. Later on, he would be hired by the shipyard then Naval Air Station Pensacola to work as an illustrator drafting maps and house plans, a skill he learned with no formal training. He died in June of 1978. Most of Hassebrock’s work centered around Pensacola and things seen in Pensacola, Star Lake, the San Carlos Hotel, the train station, the old pine trees on Scenic Highway. He used a palette knife for almost all of his later works, including the paintings on display at the Apple Market. Johnson said he enjoyed the three-dimensional effect of using the knife versus using a brush, though sometimes he would use a brush as well. During the Great Depression, he was hired to create artwork for the National Art Museum in Washington D.C. as a part of government programs to find work for people. Johnson said he was sometimes featured in one-man art shows and recently had a small art show in Molino, Florida. Since his passing, he has also been featured at the T.T. Wentworth Jr. Museum of Art in downtown Pensacola. The gallery featuring Hassebrock will be ongoing through July, with many of his paintings for sale. Cunningham has said he has 50 to 100 paintings to share and Sargent said the gallery will change as pieces are sold and Cunningham brings in new work. The feature painting is of Star Lake and is the largest of the paintings Cunningham found in the house.
