Blue Angels announce 2018 officers From Blue Angels Public Affairs

U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, announced officers selected for the 2018 air show season July 8. The squadron selected two F/A-18 demonstration pilots, a C-130 demonstration pilot, maintenance officer and public affairs officer to join a previously selected commanding officer on the 2018 team. Each officer was recommended for selection by Chief of Naval Air Training Rear Adm. James Bynum, and ultimately approved by Chief of Naval Air Forces Vice Adm. Mike Shoemaker, for final selection to the 2018 Blue Angels team. Many highly qualified Navy and Marine Corps officers submit applications to join the Blue Angels each year. “I am incredibly impressed by the quality, professionalism, and talent of the Sailors and

Marines who apply for this team,” said Cmdr. Ryan Bernacchi, commanding officer and flight leader of the Blue Angels. “We’re going to field a superb team next year and I am excited to see them continue the legacy of representing the pride and professionalism of the Navy and Marine Corps.” The Blue Angels select finalists to interview at the team’s home base of Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) during the week of the Pensacola Beach Air Show each year. The team makes selections at the conclusion of that week. The newly selected 2018 officers include: F/A-18 demonstration pilots: • Marine Maj. Jeffrey Mullins, 30, of Memphis, Tenn., is an F/A-18 Hornet pilot currently assigned to Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 31. He graduated from EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University See Blues on page 2

Vouchers available to accelerate officer graduate education By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center Public Affairs

Naval officers unable to pursue full-time graduate studies now have an additional education option with the FY-18 Graduate Education Voucher (GEV) program, announced July 11. Detailed in Naval Administrative Message (NavAdmin) 160-17, the GEV program offers eligible officers

the opportunity to receive funded graduate education during off-duty hours. Through GEV, unrestricted line (URL) officers can apply to receive funding for Navy-relevant graduate education meeting the requirements of at least one sub-specialty code as specified by the Navy Subspecialty System (NSS). “It can be challenging for many officers to maintain their career progression and simultaneously schedule full-time education at Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) or other institutions,” said Dr. Cheral

Cook, graduate education coordinator for Naval Education and Training Command (NETC). “The GEV program offers an accelerated funding path to an offduty master’s degree with financial support of up to $20,000 per fiscal year, with a total limit of $40,000 for the entire course of study.” All required fees normally charged by the university relating directly to student application and enrollment, including mandatory health fees and health insurance, See GEV on page 2

How the Navy keeps cool with science


From Naval Health Research Center Public Affairs

n land or at sea, from scorching deserts to sweltering engineering spaces, military operations often require service members to work in environments that make heat safety a constant concern. When you factor in individual activity and fitness levels, gear, equipment and clothing, body heat is not the only thing building up; the potential for heat injuries rise too. Over the last 28 years, I have been conducting thermal research at the Naval Health Research Center (NHRC) to develop strategies that reduce or prevent heat injuries and keep our troops healthy and mission-ready. When a unit loses personnel due to heat injuries, reduced manning can make it difficult to meet operational requirements and negatively impact mission success. In 2013 alone, there were 324 cases of heat stroke and just over 1,700 other heat injuries among active duty service mem-

bers. That is over 2,000 warfighters who were unable to report for duty, either temporarily or permanently, and support their unit's mission. To optimize the operational readiness of our warfighters, Navy Medicine has been proactive in conducting medical research to reduce heat injuries and optimize the safety of military personnel working in hot conditions for decades. I conducted my first thermal physiology study in 1989 and ever since environmental physiology has been the primary focus of my research. Over the years, my team and I have conducted several studies to prevent service members from incurring heat injuries, to include: evaluating individual thermoregulatory capac-

ity, identifying safe heat exposure limits, investigating the use of microclimate cooling (ice vests, water cooled vests) and developing advanced technologies to monitor environmental conditions and provide current time heat exposure guidance. The Automated Heat Stress System (AHSS) was developed at NHRC in 1997 by a collaborative effort with my research team and has had tremendous impact on operational forces by improving heat stress monitoring. The AHSS provides a very accurate measure of thermal conditions in any given environment by factoring in air temperature, radiant or black globe temperature and relative humidity. The AHSS then auto-

installed on a destroyer in 1997 and since 2003 it has been incorporated in the construction plans for each new destroyer. It is now used on more than 60 Navy ships. In 2002, the AHSS was implemented ashore to help reduce heat injuries by providing flagcondition guidance. The flags, which are green, yellow, red and black, determine what physical activity is allowable and clothing restrictions while performing physical activity. As it does aboard ship, the AHSS automatically monitors and calculates condiPatrick Stone, 78th Air Base Wing recreation assistant, tions.

Peak of peak moving season: Navy PCS LOIs issuance ramping up By Suzanna Brugler Deputy, NavSup GLS Office of Corporate Communications


aval Supply Systems Command Global Logistics Support (NavSup GLS) Household Goods (HHG) announced that Navy permanent change of station (PCS) letters of instruction (LOIs) will be issued during the “peak of the peak” moving season. Peak moving season runs from the beginning of May until Aug. 15. “Peak of the peak” moving season lands during late June to early July. “Budget challenges and PCS funding shortfalls have resulted in significantly compressed orders lead time. Our senior leadership fully understands the impact that this compressed lead time has had on our Sailors and their families as the uncertainty associated with waiting for official orders impacts all aspects of an impending move,” said Paul Brown, director of NavSupGLS warfighter family support. In an effort to mitigate the impact of short notice release of orders, the Navy is expanding the issuance of LOIs in order to enable greater flexibility and to provide greater certainty to an already stressful situation associated with a PCS move. Currently, Sailors receiving orders to an Overseas or Remote Continental U.S. (CONUS) location are issued LOIs to complete the required overseas screening for the member and their family, to initiate the passport application process and start any required security clearance investigations. These LOIs are released via message traffic. Starting in July 2017, Naval Personnel Command (NPC) will begin issuing separate LOIs for

most PCS orders not covered by the existing LOIs associated with overseas and remote CONUS assignment. Sailors will be able to complete operational sea duty screening, update security clearances, take permissive temporary duty (TDY) for residence hunting, begin the entitlement counseling and application processes for the movement of HHG and make reservations for travel with the LOI. There are some limitations to what can be accomplished with an LOI. An LOI cannot be used to obligate or expend government funds. For example, an LOI cannot be used to receive advance military or travel pay, to charge airline tickets, to secure a pickup date to ship HHG or personally owned vehicles (POV), to place HHG or POVs in storage or to authorize the reimbursement for a personally procured move (PPM). Upon receipt of the LOI, service members should access the Defense Personal Property System (DPS) and use “NAVYLOI” as the PCS order number when inputting their HHG requirements into the system. The LOI and supporting documents such as a signed DD 1299 (application for shipment and/or storage of personal property) and DD 1797 (personal property

counseling checklist) must be digitally scanned and uploaded into DPS. The LOI shall not be used for actual movement of personnel, dependents, HHG or POVs. It is incumbent on commands to establish successful message traffic receipt and delivery to ensure receipt of LOIs for incoming members. Depending on the funding environment and the lead time of PCS orders, this may not occur until shortly before the planned move. It is important to note that a moving company cannot be assigned, nor a pickup date guaranteed, until official PCS orders have been released by NPC. Early application submission of service members’ HHG requirements into DPS will provide better communication and planning information to industry in order to best serve Navy personnel. Service members may e-mail questions to householdgoods@

navy.mil or call 1 (855) HHGMOVE (444-6683) for assistance. NavSupGLS will collaborate with other services to support Navy members who utilize non-Navy Personal Property offices. Service members are encouraged to visit www. navsup. navy. mil/ household/ for the schedule of HHG entitlement webinars and other valuable information. This website or the local personal property office will provide families with detailed instructions on completing the online household goods move application in DPS, accessible through www.move.mil. Commands are requested to proactively encourage members to begin the HHG move application process as early as possible. Additionally, upon receipt of a LOI, service members may request permissive TDY for residence hunting in accordance with MILPERSMAN 1320210.

CNO’s ‘A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority’ online From Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson released “A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority,” earlier this year, a document that addresses how the Navy will adapt to changes in the security environment and continue to fulfill its mission. To read A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority go to https:// www. cnic. navy. mil/ content/ dam/ cnic/ cnrse/ pdfs/ CNRSE/ CNO% 20Design% 20for% 20Maintaining%20 Maritime%20 Superiority.pdf. The term “design” refers to the document’s built-in flexibility, recognizing the rapid rate of change occurring in both technology and the maritime domain. “This guidance frames the problem and a way forward, while ac-

knowledging that there is inherent and fundamental uncertainty in both the problem definition and the proposed solution,” said Richardson.

We Pledge our Allegiance to America’s Heroes America’s heroes are not wearing capes. They don’t have super powers. More likely, they’re wearing old jeans; they have faded memories. They blend in with the rest of us. But when liberty was on the line, each performed with honor and courage. Each made a difference in the lives we live today. Since 1978, VITAS® Healthcare has been privileged to care for America’s heroes near the end of life. Across the nation and here in Northwest Florida, we ease their todays as we honor their yesterdays.

Every veteran deserves VITAS.

USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10) arrives in San Diego By Lt. Matt Vernam USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10) Public Affairs


AN DIEGO (NNS) – The newest Independence-variant littoral combat ship USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10) arrived in San Diego July 5, after successfully completing her maiden voyage from Mobile, Ala. Following construction and acceptance trials earlier this year at the Austal USA shipyard in Mobile, Giffords sailed to Galveston, Texas, where she was commissioned June 10. “Our Sailors are honored to represent the ship namesake, its homeport in San Diego and the U.S. Navy,” said Cmdr. Keith Woodley, Giffords’ commanding officer. “Every Sailor will continue, through USS Gabrielle Gifford’s service to her nation, to fulfill the ship’s motto, ‘I Am Ready.’ ” During her sail around transit from Mobile, Giffords Sailors conducted Combat Ship Systems Qualification Trials (CSSQT) events, various crew certification training events and regularly scheduled equipment and systems checks and transited through the Panama Canal. Giffords is the ninth littoral combat ship to enter the fleet and the fifth Independence-variant LCS. She joins other LCS, including USS Freedom (LCS 1), USS Independence (LCS 2), USS Fort Worth (LCS 3), USS

Coronado (LCS 4), USS Jackson (LCS 6) and USS Montgomery (LCS 8), who are also homeported in San Diego. Giffords Sailors are excited for the future of their ship but also for their own return to San Diego. “We have put in a lot of hard work over the past nine months,” said OS1 Lee Tran. “It is going to be nice to have a little down time with friends and family before continuing to work the ship toward its next milestone.” Family and friends were similarly eager for some quality time with their returning Sailors. Many said they were also grateful for the support and friendships they forged with other families while their Sailors were away. “Knowing I was not in this alone and that there were more families out there going through it too made me at peace knowing our Sailors had each other,” said Morgan Witherspoon, friend of a Giffords Sailor. LCS 10 is named after former

The littoral combat ship USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10), the Navy’s newest littoral combat ship, was brought to life by her crew before a crowd of nearly 2,500 guests at Pier 21 at the Port of Galveston, June 10. In 2012 the Secretary of the Navy announced the future ship’s name and USS Gabrielle Giffords became the 16th ship to be named for a woman and only the 13th ship to be named for a living person since 1850. The ship is commanded by Cmdr. Keith Woodley, a native of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, who leads the core crew of 50 officers and enlisted personnel. The 3,200-ton Gabrielle Giffords was built by Austal USA in Mobile, Ala. The ship is 421 feet in length, has a beam of 103 feet, and a navigational draft of 15 feet. The ship uses two gas turbine and two diesel engines to power four steerable waterjets to speeds in excess of 40 knots. U.S. Navy video frame grab

Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords who survived an assassination attempt in 2011. Former Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus selected the LCS 10 namesake and said it is appropriate that the ship is named for Giffords, whose name is “synonymous with courage when she inspired the nation with remarkable resiliency and showed the possibilities of the human spirit.” LCS is a high-speed, agile,

shallow draft, mission-focused surface combatant designed for operations in the littoral environment, yet fully capable of open ocean operations. As part of the surface fleet, LCS has the ability to counter and outpace evolving threats independently or within a network of surface combatants. Paired with advanced sonar and mine hunting capabilities, LCS provides a major contribution, as well as a more diverse set of options to

commanders, across the spectrum of operations. For more information on USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10), visit www. public. navy. mil/ surfor/lcs10/Pages/default.aspx.

Take a shot: Whiting Warriors Paintball now open Story, photo by Ens. Ben Lascurain NASWF Public Affairs Office

As a large gold pair of scissors snipped and a red ribbon fluttered to the ground, the Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) “Whiting Warriors Paintball Course” was officially open for business July 8. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was the finish to a lengthy process to bring a new recreation facility to the Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) inventory. A couple of friends kicked off the new course with a bang, a pop and more than a few splats, testing their friendship by shooting several hundred paintball rounds at each other. Their competition was followed by a group of flight students playing a game of “Capture the Flag.” “It’s a really good place to feel good about ‘shooting’ your friends,” 1st Lt. Andreas Kanya said, after he and other student naval aviators walked off the course. Tom Kubalewski, the NASWF MWR director, is

thrilled to have the course up and running. “The development of the paintball program at NAS Whiting Field had been discussed shortly after the closure of the golf program in 2015 as a way to utilize some of the land and as a way to bring additional recreation activities to NAS Whiting Field,” Kubalewski said. “However, it wasn’t until six months ago that the possibility of a paintball course came into

fruition.” Now, after those months of preparation, NASWF has a paintball field more than 500 feet long of playable course with more than 50 inflatable barriers currently in use – although that isn’t the end of the plans for the space around the old golf course. MWR plans to open a second paintball course on the old golf driving range in October. Along with the opening of a second course, the hours of operation

will be increased from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and days of operation will be expanded to include Sundays. Not only will the planned expansion bring more hours to scratch the paintball itch, but it will also exhibit more permanent barriers. This second course will utilize a World War II troop transport truck in the center of the field as a capture the flag post with several huge irrigation pipes repurposed as barriers, as well as other new barriers and cover. Competitions of “Capture the Flag” and “Last Man Standing” will be set in a course unique to any other local paintball facility. Kubalewski foresees even more expansion for the new facility. “We are very excited to bring this endeavor to NAS Whiting Field and we hope to continually grow the program by offering future events such as team building programs, birthday parties and command recreation programs,” he said. Organized tournaments will be coming soon, so participants may want to brush up on their

skills and assemble the best paintballing squads. Safety is always of utmost importance, so be sure to wear closed-toe shoes, and although pants and long sleeve shirts aren’t required, they are recommended. Children aged 12 are welcome, but should have an adult with them during the game. Whiting Warriors Paintball course is located adjacent to Mulligan’s Grill on NAS Whiting Field North Road (also known as USS Intrepid Road). The course is open to all activeduty service members, retirees and DoD employees and their family. No outside paintballs or paintball guns can be used to ensure the safety of participants. Equipment rentals for $10 include a marker with air tank, mask and flak jacket style vest, but outside safety helmets/visors are permitted subject to meeting safety standards. Paintballs are $15 for 500 rounds and $50 for 2000 rounds. Group rates are encouraged; be sure to make a reservation through MWR by calling (850) 665-6250.

NASWF’s Co lye r re c a lls f lyin g a s ‘Marine One’ Story, photo by Jamie Link NASWF Public Affairs Office

To say Ron Colyer has seen, done and experienced some interesting and unique things would certainly be an understatement. Taking to the skies above, as well as supporting the flying mission from the ground, Colyer has had many designations in his 24 years of active service in the United States Marine Corps (USMC). Colyer is currently the site manager for Cubic Global Defense, which provides TH-57 and T-6B simulator training as well as academic instruction. He and his staff of 92 personnel provide support to Training Air Wing Five onboard NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) to support the mission to help produce the military’s finest aviation warfighters. Prior to his position at NASWF, the Marine has flown presidential support missions as “Marine One” and served as a former commanding officer of Helicopter Training Squadron Eighteen (HT-18). “Flying Marine One on multiple occasions is certainly high on my list of highlights; it was an honor for me,” Colyer said. Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1) is a USMC helicopter squadron responsible for the trans-

portation of the president of the United States, vice president, cabinet members and other dignitaries. When flying the president of the United States, the aircraft call sign is “Marine One.” Colyer joined the HMX-1 squadron after completion of amphibious warfare school. Although working in presidential support was not something he had seriously considered while “growing up” in the Marine Corps, the assignment seemed to be good timing for where he and

Resort-Style Retirement

his wife were in their Marine Corps careers. The work was exacting. “You want to get everything right, every time,” Colyer said. “It is a very thorough process when flying the president, vice president, joint chiefs, cabinet members and visiting dignitaries. We were also called upon to fly other nation’s presidents, kings, prime ministers and even the Pope.” Colyer’s service to the executive flight detachment of HMX-1 came during President William Clinton’s tenure in office (1993-1997). During that time, he also supported flying missions to the presidential retreat at Camp David, and had the opportunity to spend weekends at the retreat while the president was there. Surprisingly, although serving a presidential support mission was a career highlight, Colyer considers his time as commander of HT-18 at NAS Whiting Field as the pinnacle accomplishment of his career. “Teaching young officers how to fly helicopters was very rewarding ... and fun,” Colyer said. Colyer had many significant accomplishments during service to the country. He deployed four times on U.S. Navy ships, spent 33 days above the Arctic Circle in Norway, performed duties as a CH-53E assault support helicopter pilot and served in all three active-duty Marine Corps wings.

on the upside of Florida

Remember — back to school is just around the corner By Mike O’Connor Gosport Editor

Our 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’ve had your fill of sun and surf, we’re 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 20minute tour of the flight line behind the restoration hangar, gives a look at even more aviation history.

The National Naval Aviation Museum’s Hangar Bay One added 55,000 square feet of space to a facility filled with aviation history. The Apollo Space Exhibit on display in Hangar Bay One includes a Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) replica, a lunar rover and interactive audiovisual displays. Photo by Mike O’Connor

For more information, call 1 (800) 327-5002 or visit www. navalaviationmuseum.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.

Jokes & Groaners Just in: A new crop of bad jokes ... A man was charged with overusing commas. His lawyer told him to expect a long sentence. What is the difference between a hippo and a Zippo? A hippo is really heavy and a Zippo is a little lighter. Whoever took my copy of Microsoft office, I will find you – “You have my Word.” Thank you to the person who taught me the definition of plenty ... It means a lot. Why aren't there knock-knock jokes about America? Because freedom rings. The first time I saw a universal remote, I thought, “this changes everything.” A telemarketer tried to sell me a coffin. I told him, “that’s the last thing I need.”

Plaque found in building at NASP returned to family By Ashley Laliberty NASP Public Affair intern


ou never know what you might find during a renovation of a building on a Navy base as old as NAS Pensacola. A historical artifact preserving a family’s memory was uncovered earlier this year during the renovation of Bldg. 781-0 to make a space for the Naval Reserve Center at NAS Pensacola. An honorary plaque dedicated to James H.R. Stumbaugh was removed from one of the interior walls. The building was named for NASP Supply Management Officer James H.R. Stumbaugh and dedicated

Feb. 27, 1979. According to the plaque, Strumbaugh provided 44 years of service to his country and the United States Navy. The Field Engineering & Architecture Department (FEAD) engineering technician transported the plaque to Navy Public Works Requirements Manager Larry Maxwell, so he could decide what to do with it. “I got with Carrie Williams, our cultural re-

sources manager and we decided it would be better served locating a family member and see if they would like to have it,” Maxwell said. “I went online and typed in Stumbaugh family in Pensacola. Katherine Pace Stumbaugh’s obituary came up showing she had passed away on July 31, 2015, at the age of 81.” Shortly after his discovery, Maxwell contacted the Gadsden Street United Methodist Church in Pensacola, where the funeral services were held. He explained the situation and his desire to locate a

family member. The message was then relayed to their daughter, Diane Stumbaugh Gillespie, who resides in Virginia Beach, Va. Gillespie contacted Maxwell the following day expressing her interest and excitement in receiving the plaque on her father’s behalf. They arranged to meet at the Pensacola Lighthouse and Museum on base in May. Maxwell passed along the plaque to her and her husband to take back to their home in Virginia Beach. “He would be 107 years old if he were still with us

today,” Gillespie said. “I am sure he would be pleased to know that the plaque is with family.” “Back during that time, Bldg. 781-0 was NAS Supply Center and was the administration section of the 781 Supply complex,” Maxwell said. NASP Community Planner and Liaison Officer Stephen Opalenik is proud of what Maxwell was able to do. “I think Larry did a noble thing to preserve history and a family memory that could have otherwise made its way to a landfill,” Opalenik said.
