Blue Angels take off for the beach Blue Angels announce new solo pilot; From Visit Pensacola
Thousands are flocking to Pensacola Beach for the annual air show featuring the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration squadron, the Blue Angels. This year, fans will have multiple opportunities to catch a glimpse of the famous flight team in action, despite fears that the beach show would be canceled. The Blue Angels temporarily stood down and canceled three weekend shows after Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss was killed in a June 2 crash in Smyrna, Tenn. In a city with deep military roots, few things arouse more pride than the sight of the Blues soaring high above the Gulf of Mexico. NAS Pensacola is known as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation” for training generations of airmen. It also is the home base for the Blue Angels. This year is also special because the team, which started in

Center for Information Dominance changes name By Carla M. McCarthy Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs
Capt. Bill Lintz, Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) commanding officer, announced that the information warfare (IW) community’s training arm officially changed its name from Center for Information Dominance (CID) to CIWT
July 7. In early 2016, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare and Director of Naval Intelligence Vice Adm. Ted Branch replaced the term “information dominance” with “information warfare.” This also resulted in Naval
Information Dominance Forces, which identifies the requirements for the IW community’s training, also changing its name to Naval Information Forces, to be consistent with naming conventions for other type commanders. The evolution in terminology
and command names is in response to Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson's Jan. 5 release of “A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority.” The document emphasizes “information IN warfare” and “information AS warfare” and demands the delivery of information warfare as a critical capability of See CIWT on page 2
Feds Feed Families campaign starts at NASP By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer Capt. Edward L. Heflin
In January, 1996, Stockfish reported to Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron 1 (VQ-1), Whidbey Island, Wash., flying in the EP-3 while holding positions in the tactics, maintenance, and operations departments. In March 1999, he was assigned to VP-30, the P3 fleet replacement squadron, where he served as VQ/VPU NFO training officer and the avionics division officer.

Donations are coming in and the 2016 Feds Feed Families is on track for another successful year aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). About 750 pounds of nonperishable food donations have been collected from Pensacolaarea commands since the eighth annual governmentwide campaign started June 1, said NASP Command Chaplain Cmdr. Steven “Todd” Orren. Contributions will be accepted through Aug. 31. Collection boxes are located at the NASP Commissary, 5800 West Highway 98, and at various commands around the base including NAS Pensacola Command Headquarters, Naval Air Technical Training Center, Naval Hospital Pensacola and NASP Corry Station. Donations are picked up weekly to be delivered to a local food bank, and NASP should be on track for another banner year,
said RP3 Braelen Gasser, who is leading this year’s team. “We would like to keep setting some records,” he said. Historically, NASP has been a major player in the success of the campaign in Navy Region Southeast. In 2015, NASP’s 56,456 pound contribution accounted for 20 percent of the region’s total. Led by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), all federal agencies and field components are encouraged to participate in Feds Feed Families. The campaign has a big impact. Launched in 2009 as part of President Barack Obama’s United We Serve campaign, Feds Feed Families was designed to help food banks and pantries stay stocked during summer months when they traditionally see a decrease in donations and an increase in need. Since 2009 the food drive has collected nearly 57.2 million pounds of food for those in need. The nationwide total for last year was more than 17.9 million pounds.
If you are planning to make a donation, here are some most wanted items listed on the website of Manna Food Pantries in Pensacola: See FFF on page 2

Governor announces $1.8 million in defense grants From www.flgov.com
TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Rick Scott announced June 29 that $1.8 million has been awarded through the Florida Defense Support Task Force Grant Program to support seven defense projects across 13 counties. The goal of the funding is to strengthen Florida’s military bases ahead of any potential Department of Defense realignment or closure actions, thereby protecting the more than 774,000 jobs and more than $79.8 billion in economic impact the defense industry supports in Florida. Scott pointed out that Florida is home to more than 758,000
service men and women and that it is important to support them. “We will continue to work each day to make sure Florida is the most military friendly state in the nation,” Scott said. The Florida Defense Support Task Force was created in 2011 with the mission to make recommendations to preserve and protect military installations, support the state’s position in research and development related to military missions and contracting, and improve the state’s military-friendly environment for service members, military families, military retirees and businesses that bring military and base-related jobs to the state. This grant program is ad-

the Navy’s mission sets. With headquarters at Naval Air Station Pensacola Corry Station, CIWT continues to train the IW community at 18 locations in the continental United States, Hawaii and Japan, as a learning center reporting to Naval Education and Training Command. “We have come a long way from when the first class of communications technicians, later called cryptologic technicians, began training at Naval Communications Training Center at Corry Field in Pensacola in 1961,” said Lintz. “Eventually that command developed into what was most recently called CID, following a history of several schoolhouses, including information technology and intelligence, merging together.” Today, CIWT teaches cryptologic technicians, information systems technicians, intelligence specialists, and even electronics technicians. For officers, CIWT provides training to cryptologic warfare, information professional, intelligence, and foreign area officers. “Our largest locations at Corry Station, Virginia Beach, San Diego and Monterey continue to be full commands in their own right, led by senior IW community officers,” said Lintz. “Each of these commands is now called Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC), and each has very unique and distinctive histories of their own.” Focused on producing the Navy’s linguists, IWTC Monterey remains the Navy component at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language School. IWTC San Diego and IWTC Virginia Beach both originated as intelligence training centers, and IWTC Corry Station will always be thought

of by the cryptologic community as the “cradle of cryptology.” “Those three locations have broadened the scope of what they offer to the IW community, branching out beyond their original charters and making the training for all of the IW community more accessible when and where our Sailors and joint service customers need it,” said Lintz. The additional 14 CIWT detachments and learning sites at Navy, Army and Air Force installations and commands in the United States and Japan likewise provide targeted training opportunities to meet the demands of the fleet, as well as the other military services and the national security establishment. CIWT also continues to oversee two Navywide programs, Navy Credentialing Opportunities On-line (COOL) and the Center for Language, Regional Expertise and Culture. “I’m so proud of the entire team of staff and instructors throughout our CIWT enterprise,” said Lintz. “Our direction from the Chief of Naval Operations is clear, to deliver high velocity learning at every level and to further ingrain information warfare. The future of CIWT is bright, and we’re only going to continue to adapt and evolve as we prepare our students, the IW community’s professionals, to meet the mission.” CIWT, with headquarters at Naval Air Station Pensacola Corry Station, delivers information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

Managing PCS orders: Budget pressures cut lead times From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs
s the peak season for permanent change-of-station (PCS) moves begins, many Sailors are awaiting orders so they and their families can proceed to their next duty stations. However, due to the current fiscal environment and budget constraints, most Sailors will have less time to plan their moves as order release timelines are compressed. While this timeline isn’t easy on Sailors or their families, it is important for Sailors to understand why that is the case and what we are doing to improve the timeline. What’s going on? Due to budgetary pressures and a perennially decreased top line for Navy’s Manpower Account, we knew PCS funds would be tight toward the end of the fiscal year (FY). Consequently, the Navy began to carefully manage the issuance of PCS orders earlier this year, which resulted in shorter lead times for PCS moves. Each year, approximately 66,000 Sailors receive operational, rotational and training orders. The Navy also moves approximately 70,000 Sailors as they are accessed, separate, retire or
How to submit a commentary
execute organized unit moves (for homeport changes). Traditionally, operational and rotational moves have averaged three months advance notice for the past several years. However, in some cases this summer, those timelines have been shortened to one month due to budgetary pressure. What we’re doing? Navy leadership understands the impact of shortened PCS timelines and the stress this causes Sailors. As such, we convened a working group with representatives from throughout the fleet to look at a variety of measures to ensure the Navy is able to maintain current readiness, fleet manning levels and minimize additional impacts to Sailors as we carefully navigate PCS orders for the remainder of the fiscal year. The results should bring the Navy closer to its three-month average for issuing PCS orders in the coming weeks and
months ahead. The working group recommended several initiatives, most will be transparent to Sailors, to help maintain current readiness and Fleet manning levels, reduce overall costs, and minimize additional impacts to our service members as we carefully navigate PCS orders for the remainder of the fiscal year. As part of these recommendations, the Navy will shift remaining accessions for FY16 in non-critical and overmanned rates to FY17. In other words, approximately 2,100 Sailors will begin their training a few months later than previously scheduled. Also, the Navy will not recruit additional individuals to replace Delayed Entry Program Sailors who do not complete

training as is normally the case. The Navy remains on track to meet its recruiting goals for FY16, as it has for the last 109 consecutive months. Additionally, Navy Personnel Command will continue to issue letters of intent for overseas moves. That way, while orders may not be in hand, individuals can start the process of doing overseas and medical screenings, dependent entry approval, passport applications and security clearance requests. However, given the current fiscal constraints, the Navy is prioritizing PCS moves in order to remain within budget. Highest priority moves are those to fill critical gaps at sea, billets for individual augmentees, force protection, humanitarian, safety and overseas
billets – they will be issued first. All other orders will be released following a sequenced move schedule to ensure the fleet is manned properly. We have released priority one moves (individual augmentee, immediate and OFRP deployers, numbered fleet staffs, overseas billets) and must-moves (safety, early return of dependents, humanitarian) with estimated detach dates through the end of July, and are now working on August orders and beyond. The future The Navy recognizes that these shortened lead times limit Sailors’ time to prepare for moves, and burdens them and their families. Our focus and priority remains on manning the fleet, and taking care of Sailors and their families. Leadership is engaged at all levels to develop and implement solutions to minimize the impact to our Sailors. Funding for all fourth quarter PCS moves is on the way. We will continue to work with the fleet to develop PCS phasing plans to fund priority moves and put in place processes that ensures the fleet is manned properly as we come to the end of the fiscal year and move into the next.

NASP ceremony marks 25 years for Desert Storm memorial By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer
all crepe myrtles provided welcome shade during a ceremony July 8 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Desert Storm Memorial Garden at Naval Air Station Pensacola. The group that gathered July 4, 1991, to dedicate the garden had no shade because the trees had just been planted. Members of the Oleander Garden Club, the Telephone Pioneers, the Navy Seabees and NASP Public Works worked together to complete the garden, which is located off Moffett Road north of the Naval Aviation Memorial Chapel. Some of the same people who were at the original dedication ceremony were present for the 25th-anniversary commemoration, including the master of cer-
emonies, NASP’s Installation Environmental Program Director Mark W. Gibson, who shared his memories of working on the project along with Ed Morreale of the Telephone Pioneers Association and Cinny O’Donnell, the current president of the Oleander Garden Club. “There are so many memories, so many things that we remember and 25 years go by in the blink of an eye,” Gibson said. In his opening remarks, NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Martin recog-

nized Louise Oelschlager and Bill Oelschlager, who attended the ceremony. “You lost your son to Desert Storm, Tech. Sgt. John Oelschlager, who perished Jan. 31, 1991, along with 13 of his crew on Spirit O3, an AC-130 Spectre gunship, as they provided close air support to Marines who were suffering terrific fire from Iraqi ground forces during the liberation of Kuwait,” Martin said. He was the first of many Pensacolians to make the ultimate sacrifice to the war of modern times over the past 25 years, Martin said. Gibson, who is a retired U.S. Navy Reserve captain and served during Desert Storm, said the loss of the Hurlburt Fieldbased crew of Spirit 03 inspired
the construction of the memorial. To close of the ceremony, Gibson recited the number of American service members
killed in action in Desert Storm (146) Afghanistan (2,382) and Iraq (4,502) and a trumpeter played taps.

Legendary ace Diz Laird flies his 100th aircraft Story, photo by MC2 Paolo Bayas CNAF Public Affairs
CORONADO, Calif. (NNS) –A 95-year-old, 29 1/2year veteran famous for being the single-known ace to achieve victories against both German and Japanese aircraft during World War II and later becoming a stunt pilot for 20th Century Fox film “Tora Tora Tora” in 1969, flew his 100th aircraft above Coronado July 9. Retired Cmdr. Dean “Diz” Laird served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam, operated in 175 combat and training missions, served on 12 different carriers, flew in the Navy’s first jet squadron, was the first person to land a jet-powered aircraft aboard USS Midway and has the most arrested landings on a straight-deck carrier. “I want to thank everyone who took part in making this happen,” said Laird. “When I found out that I was going to be able to do this, I was shocked. I couldn’t believe it.” Laird added that flying his 100th plane wasn’t for an achievement, medal or trophy. He wanted to set this milestone for himself. Laird flew in the rear seat of a T-34C Turbomentor with Lt. Cmdr. Nicole Johnson, a fleet replacement
squadron instructor pilot with the “Flying Eagles” of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 122. “I was so excited and honored to fly with a true legend, how many people can say they flew with ‘Diz’ Laird,” said Johnson. “Then he had to make me look bad by being a better pilot at 95 (years old). It is men like this that paved the way for the rest of us.” She continued to say that “aviation is a lot different now from what it was, especially when you think about

how he is an ace. We train for air-to-air combat our whole career, but very rarely, in this day and age, does that actually happen. It’s phenomenal to have just had a conversation and fly with him. It’s fantastic and an honor.” She added that flying 100 different aircraft is a tremendous achievement for any pilot. In comparison, Johnson has flown only 15 aircraft in her 12-year career as a pilot. The 95-year-old legend had some words of advice for younger naval aviators. He said that his “policy has always been that every fighter pilot has two main assets once they’re airborne. One is altitude and the other is speed. Never give up one, without gaining something on the other.” During the flight Laird and Johnson flew off the coast of San Diego for a little bit of sightseeing followed by conducting a few aileron rolls in a training area before coming in for a landing. Laird has been recognized on Coronado’s Avenue of Heroes and continues to actively participate in naval aviation organizations.

Navy Medicine releases video with helpful tips for mosquito season By Jazmine Wise U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery Public Affairs
ALLS CHURCH, Va. (NNS) – Navy Medicine released a mosquito awareness video for Sailors, Marines and their families recently. Although the Zika virus has not been spread by mosquitoes in the United States, it could occur. The new video demonstrates how to take extra protective measures during mosquito season, including measures to safeguard your home such as avoiding the use of mosquito attraction devices. “The Navy is actively conducting mosquito surveillance and testing on board installations along the U.S. Gulf and Atlantic coasts,” said Cmdr. Alan Lam, deputy associate director, U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BuMed) Public Health, Emergency Preparedness and Response. “Being educated and aware of preventive measures is vital in avoiding the transmission of the virus.” Female mosquitoes lay eggs in small pools of water. To reduce mosquito breeding, eliminate standing water in flower pots, clogged rain gutters, children’s pools, tarps and abandoned tires. Install screens on windows and doors and ensure they are in good condition to keep mosquitoes outside. Look for insect repellents that contain 20-35 percent DEET, the most common active ingredient in insect repel-
lent, or 20 percent picaridin. Repellents containing permethrin can be used to treat clothing and are safe for pregnant or nursing mothers and their children. These repellents can be purchased through online retailers and local sporting goods stores. Additionally, long sleeve, light-colored shirts protect from mosquito bites and sun exposure. Mosquito netting should be placed over infant carriers to prevent contact. Zika virus is transmitted to humans by Aedes mosquitoes

and blood transfusions. Infected males can also pass the virus on to partners through un-
protected sex. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), four in five people infected do not develop symptoms of the virus. Symptoms include fever, rash, headaches, joint and muscle aches and conjunctivitis. “Avoiding mosquito bites is the best way to prevent infection,” Lam said. “Mosquitoes carrying Zika bite mostly during the day.

Nation of Patriots host flag relay to honor America’s service members By Lt.j.g. Marissa Tungjunyatham NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
he rumble of patriotism rolled through Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) July 6 as two motorcycles groups escorted a single American flag to the installation. The two organizations were part of the cross-country Nation of Patriot’s campaign called the 2016 Patriot Tour. Since 2009, the group’s mission has been to escort one American flag across 48 states for 100 days to pay tribute to all members and families of America’s armed forces – past, present and fallen. Harley Owners Group (H.O.G) Chapters from throughout the country helped the Nation of Patriots organize the flag relay to make the journey possible. The flag began its travel May 28 from the Harley Davidson of Madison, Wis. The flag is handed off from motorcycle group to motorcycle group as it makes a full circle back to Wisconsin during the Labor Day weekend. NAS Whiting Field was the 39th stop out of the 99 stops that will be made during the tour. Following a police escort onto the installation, more than 30 motorcycle riders parked in front of the command building to hold a flag exchange ceremony passing the colors from the Tallahassee group to the Northwest Florida chapter. “It’s a pleasure to have the riders of the 2016 Patriot
The Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) colors detail leads veterans from two Northwest Florida motorcycle groups to the installation’s flagpole to raise an American flag. The veterans are participating in the Nation of Patriots Tour, carrying the flag across 48 states during the 100 days between the Memorial Day and Labor Day holidays. The group from Tallahassee passed the flag to the Pensacola chapter at NASWF July 6. The groups raise money to support wounded veterans with the Patriot Ride. Photo by Jamie Link
Tour here at Naval Air Station Whiting Field. We are happy to support you towards your goal of aiding wounded veterans and their families,” NASWF Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau said as he welcomed the veterans to the base. “We are honored to have you here today.” The veterans fell in rank behind NAS Whiting Field colors detail as they marched to the base’s main flag pole. The riders presented the flag to the colors detail, and they raised the flag high for the Pledge of Allegiance. When the flag reached the top, a moment of silence was held to honor the fallen patriots who have served to protect the nation. As the colors detail retrieved the flag and began to fold it with assistance from the veterans, the flag bearer from Tallahassee read “The Rite of Passing the Flag” to the members of the Pensacola group, who will carry the flag onward in its journey. “By accepting this duty, you are accepting all that AB2 Matthew Beasley folds the American flag that trav- is embodied with the colors of this flag. You will elled from Madison, Wis., before handing it to the bear- proudly represent the nation’s collective past, present, ers that will continue the flag’s journey west. Photo by Lt. and our future. You will represent the many that have stood to the call of duty, the many that serve today, j.g. Marissa Tungjunyatham.
their families and above all, rider, you will bear the memory of those that have fallen defending what is represented in these colors. You ride for honor, for country and for all members of our military – the heart of our nation travels with you. Godspeed, flag bearer.” The Pensacola flag bearers, Director of H.O.G. Northwest Florida Chapter Bob Booth and H.O.G. Assistant Director Tom Zolecki, accepted the American flag from AB2 Matthew Beasley. Many of the riders and members of the Northwest Florida H.O.G. Chapter enjoyed their time on base as it was a homecoming of sorts. Booth was a former fixed-wing flight instructor at Training Squadron Three in the 1970s, and several other members were also instructors at NAS Whiting Field. The Patriot Tour gave them a chance to raise awareness for a cause they feel passionate about. “We’re here to drum up support for the Nation of Patriots,” Zolecki said, “100 percent of donations they collect are given to wounded veterans and their families. I’m a retired Air Force service member and half of the members in our chapter are retired armed forces. This is something that’s near and dear to us.”

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. The flight line bus tour, a free 20-minute tour of the flight
line behind the restoration hangar, gives a look at even more aviation history. Movies show each hour beginning at 10 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. 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, com-

pleted 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 10 p.m. daily. Fort Pickens visitor center, bookstore and museum are open: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. Fort Barrancas and visitor center is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. Advanced Redoubt: Sched-

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.

NAS Pensacola command names Civilians of the Quarter From staff reports
The NAS Pensacola command’s Civilians of the Quarter (CoQs), first quarter 2016, were recognized at a quarters/awards ceremony held June 17 in Bldg. 1534. NASP CO Capt.

These two programs have greatly reduced the amount of time required to process approximately 695 berthing accounts and billing statements that used to be done by hand. “Additionally, (Taunton) is a first-aid, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillation instructor that
has taught numerous classes to Morale, Welfare, and Recreation employees, ensuring that as many personnel as possible are qualified in these vital lifesaving skills. “Lastly, during the recent five star accreditation visit by Commander, Navy Installations Command MWR inspection team, (she) was the first to go through the new all-inclusive standards inspection for the marinas and was listed as the first ‘premier’ program under the new standards. Your performance and devotion and devotion to duty have been in keeping with highest traditions of the United States naval service.”

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. 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. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. 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. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
