Parking lot latest in series of improvements at naval hospital By Jason J. Bortz NHP PAO

During the past few months, Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) has made several facility improvements that some beneficiaries may have noticed, but its latest project should have a significant impact on everyone visiting the hospital. By the end of this year, 40 additional parking spaces, along with several new motorcycle parking areas, will be created at NHP that will help alleviate parking congestion and overcome traffic flow issues. Several new spaces have already been created and beneficiaries will notice a steady increase until the goal of 40

is reached. The addition of these new spaces should have minimal impact, if any, on current parking and traffic patterns at NHP. “It’s hard to find a parking space here,” said Bill Pickrell, facilities planner, NHP. “The new parking should make it more convenient for patients.” The additional parking spaces are just one of the upgrades the hospital has seen over the past few months. All six elevators were renovated and a new satellite pharmacy was built next to the Pensacola Commissary. The hospital also recently renovated the air

During a recent deployment to Eglin Air Force Base, an F-35C Lightning II of U.S. Navy Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA-101) was photographed (top, escorted by F/A-18s) overflying NAS Pensacola and nearby Fort Pickens. VFA-101, based at Eglin, will serve as the F-35C Fleet Replacement Squadron, training both aircrew and maintenance personnel to fly and repair the F-35C. The F-35C is a fifth-generation fighter, combining advanced stealth with fighter speed and agility, fully-fused sensor information, network-enabled operations and advanced sustainment. The F35C will enhance the flexibility, power projection, and strike capabilities of carrier air wings and joint task forces and will complement the capabilities of the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, which currently serves as the Navy’s premier strike fighter.

Sailors claim a win where synthetic drugs are concerned From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – The number of positive results for synthetic drug in urinalysis tests has decreased significantly since testing began in March 2012, according to data presented to Navy leaders by Navy Alcohol and Drug Prevention (NADAP) office. For the past year, the NADAP office has focused on educating Sailors on the risks to their health, career, and family, of using synthetic drugs such as spice and bath salts. “We consider this a win for all Sailors,” said Dorice Favorite, NADAP director, about the decrease in positive results. “It means they are listening to facts and making responsible choices for themselves Aspiring kickers visit Blue Angels ... Lt. Mark Tedrow, opposing solo pilot for the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, speaks to trainees and staff of One On One Kicking Camp, a camp for high school and college football kickers, punters and long snappers from around the country led by former NFL players. The group toured the squadron’s hangar onboard NASP and included current NFL players such as St. Louis Rams punter Johnny Hekker, New York Jets punter Ryan Quigley, New England Patriots punter Ryan Allen and Dallas Cowboys punter Spencer Benton.

and their shipmates.” “The reasons for the decline are multidimensional,” said Favorite. “Sailors un-

derstand the Navy has zero tolerance for drug use, including the use of designer and synthetic chemical compounds. Our education efforts sent a clear message that synthetic drugs are not regulated; therefore, they may be up to 200 times more potent than marijuana and much more harmful.” Educating Sailors on the danger of illegal drug use is a multi-organizational effort. “NADAP partnered with Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and other U.S. military law enforcement agencies to monitor for criminal activity, including possession, use, or distribution of illegal substances,” the director said. There is also encouraging news in the responsible use of alcohol efforts. “During the past year, driving under the influence

and alcohol-related incidents (AI) have continued to drop. The number of these incidents is down by more than 20 percent since 2006,” said Favorite. The NADAP office contributes to this improvement through a comprehensive communication strategy that includes complimentary prevention awareness campaigns that reach out to all audiences, she added. In April 2013, the Navy launched “Keep What You’ve Earned” campaign to replace the outdated “Right Spirit” campaign. Keep What You’ve Earned encourages responsible alcohol use by celebrating the achievements in the Sailor’s Navy careers and actively engages Sailors as advocates for responsible drinking.

Nine-digit ZIP codes mandatory for FPOs By Debbie Dortch NavSup Corporate Communications

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (NNS) – Effective immediately, family, friends, and businesses sending mail to Navy mobile units must use a ninedigit ZIP code to ensure delivery, according to an AlNav message released July 12 by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. Mail not addressed correctly, including mail already en route, will be returned to the sender as undeliverable. “Every mobile unit – ships, squadrons, detachments, etc. – has a unique nine-digit ZIP code,” said Naval Supply Systems Command Postal Policy Division Director Thomas Rittle. “Commanding officers will provide the correct ZIP codes to Sailors so they can notify their correspondents about the new address requirement.” According to the message, “The United States Postal Service (USPS) is resizing military mail processing opera-

tions from two coastal locations to one located in Chicago, Ill., to gain efficiencies in military mail delivery. As part of this effort, new procedures affecting configuration of mobile Fleet Post Office (FPO) addresses have been implemented to completely leverage automated mail sorting equipment and reduce manual sorting workload.” USPS automated equipment is set up to read the nine-digit ZIP code separated with a dash between the first five digits and the last four digits. The nine-digit ZIP code is required for all classes of mail. The AlNav message is available at http:// www. public. navy. mil/ bupers-npc/ reference/ messages/ Documents/ ALNAVS/ ALN2013/ ALN13047. txt. ZIP codes are a system of postal codes used by the United States Postal Service (USPS) since 1963. The term ZIP is an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan. All U.S. addresses have a standard

conditioning units for the clinics, which is part of a DoD initiative to be more energy efficient. In 2007, a Presidential Executive Order was issued that stated that everyone in the DoD must reduce energy use and cost by 30 percent by 2015. “We are well on our way (to meeting that goal),” said Pickrell. The hospital has several other projects for the near future that will also help reduce energy use. Additional air conditioning units are scheduled to be updated and new energy efficient street lights will be in-

stalled. Solar powered pedestrian crosswalk signs will also be installed that will improve patient safety for those entering and leaving the hospital. All of these projects are being done during a time of fiscal restraints by the DoD, but their importance to patient safety and satisfaction make them essential. Plus, the money for these projects was previously allocated and will provide additional cost savings in the future. “By being more energy efficient, we will actually save money in the long run,” said John Critch, facilities engineer, NHP.

Vol. 77, No. 29

This campaign in concert with “The Domino Strategy,” “Who Will Stand Your Watch” and “That Guy,” speaks to Sailors about responsible drinking and accountability. In mid-2013, the Navy implemented the use of handheld alcohol detection devices (ADD). More than 13,000 devices were shipped to commands, both afloat and ashore. These devices are intended as a tool that complements the unit’s campaign against irresponsible alcohol use and promotes Sailor safety, education and training. The ADD also helps leadership identify Sailors who may require positive intervention before a career-ending incident. NADAP plans to publish a report of lessons learned and best practices submitted by commands in January 2014. NADAP has had a very busy year, developing programs on synthetic drug testing, alcohol detection device distribution and implementation, and prevention awareness campaigns for a prescription drug campaign that is currently under development, Favorite stated: “We feel that every effort we expend on the front end to prevent a Sailor from misusing or abusing a substance improves Sailor resilience and strengthens Navy readiness.” For more information about Navy Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention or the Keep What You’ve Earned campaign, visit www.nadap.navy.mil.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

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

Son’s feet are no longer kissable ‘little piggies’ By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

A few months after birth, human babies discover two chubby feet affixed to the end of their tubby legs. They gaze, fascinated at these perfect appendages topped with wiggling tiny toes. As soon as they can grasp their feet with slobbery fingers, they shove the newfound toes into their drooling mouths. Mothers find babies’ soft feet and dimpled toes to be irresistible as well, often smooching or blowing raspberries on the padded soles. Fast forward 20 years, and those formerly kissable baby tootsies have become purely functional body parts, requiring meticulous personal hygiene to ward off potent foot odor, locker room fungus, plantar warts, and a most foul substance known as “toe jam” – a repulsive combination of sock fuzz and dead skin cells, bound with sweat. Ew. Recently, we moved our military family of five from Naval Station Mayport in Florida to Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. To further complicate an already demanding move schedule,

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 20 years (and running). Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeatandpotatoesoflife.com. She recently won second place for online columns with less than 100,000 monthly visitors at the National Society of Newspaper Columnists conference in Hartford, Conn. She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. we also decided to visit various relatives, a few friends and a couple colleges along the way. As such, we spent an inordinate number of hours together in our mini van while traveling up the East Coast. “What’s that smell?” I asked about a half hour into one particularly arduous leg of the trip. My keen olfactory nerves were picking up a repugnant aroma that might only be recreated by locking a jar of beet pickled eggs in the back seat of a 1974 Galaxie 500 during a long, hot weekend in August. The smell grew in strength, and soon our daughters were pinching their noses shut. We pulled over to locate the

source of the odor. We searched for a carton of curdled milk in the trunk. We looked for a rancid tuna sub under the seats. We opened the glove box half expecting to find a dirty diaper. We looked to see if a stowaway squirrel was decomposing under the hood. Finally, our noses guided us to the third row of seats, where our teenage son sat obliviously listening to his iPod, his huge flip-flopped feet tapping to the beat of the music. Hovering my nostrils carefully over his hairy toe knuckles, I took a big sniff. “Found it!” I yelled, and stumbled faintly back to the trunk to find a fresh pair of

socks and some emergency talcum powder so we would all survive the rest of the trip. But unappealing foot odor and toe jam become mere child’s play a couple decades after raging teenage hormones quiet down. That is when 40something feet are a veritable three-ringed circus with cracked calloused heels, curled thickened nails, burgeoning bunions and their dwarfed sidekicks, “bunionettes.” Add a painful corn or two, and you’ve got a real freak show. How does one go from playing “This Little Piggy” with smooth, perfect baby toes to the knobby, hardened feet of middle age?

Let’s face it: the five piggies are getting old. After 40 or 50 years of going to market, the big toe piggy has decided to take a detour and is now pointing in the wrong direction. The piggies who stayed home and ate roast beef seem to be doing relatively well in their snug sedentary routine, but the piggy who had none has collapsed onto his side from severe starvation. The short piggy on the end isn’t crying “wee! wee! wee!” anymore. Apparently, years of anxiety have caused him to curl up into a fetal position, and he is now hiding under the adjacent toe. Many 40-something folks make a vain attempt to stave off the aging of their feet, investing hundreds of dollars annually in pedicures, toe rings, polish and exfoliating marvels such as “The Pedi Egg,” which doubles as a nifty parmesan cheese grater. Unfortunately, nature has dictated that our feet get kinda ugly no matter what we do. So during the summer sandal months, please do keep your tootsies clean and trimmed, but don’t get too carried away. After all, what’s the sense in putting lipstick on your piggies?

Museum’s Dauntless links generations of aviators By Hill Goodspeed National Naval Aviation Museum Historian


naval officer recently paid special respect to his grandfather’s history of naval service by visiting the SBD-2 Dauntless his grandfather flew during World War II at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NAS Pensacola. Lt. Tyler Hurst remembers seeing the photographs on the wall of his grandfather’s house during visits as a child. The images of the aircraft carriers charted the service of naval aviator Capt. Charles E. Roemer from his first flattop, Lexington (CV 2), from which he abandoned ship during the Battle of Coral Sea in 1942, to the aircraft carrier named for that landmark engagement, Coral Sea (CVA 43), which Roemer commanded during the early 1960s. These images and a family legacy inspired the boy from Bakersfield, Calif., to a career in the sea service. Following graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy in 2004, Hurst entered the flight training program, receiving his wings of gold in 2006. After service as an instructor in the T-45 Goshawk, it was off to Naval Air Station (NAS) Lemoore, Calif., for transition to the F/A18E Super Hornet. Assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 147, he completed deployments onboard the carriers John C. Stennis (CVN 74) and Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation New Dawn. As he prepared to embark on the next stage of his career at the U.S. Navy Test Pilot School, Hurst visited the National Naval Aviation Museum June 21 to experience firsthand a tangible link to the service of his grandfather, who received his own wings of gold on July 14, 1938. Upon graduation Charles Roemer was as-

signed to Scouting Squadron (VS) 2 onboard Lexington, where he joined one of his flight school classmates, Mark Whittier, who had received orders to Bombing Squadron (VB) 2. In December 1940, a new SBD-2 Dauntless arrived from the Douglas Aircraft Company in El Segundo, Calif., its bureau number (2106) appearing in Whittier’s log book numerous times, Lt.

NHP extends pediatrics clinic hours Story, photo by MC1 James Stenberg NHP PAO

Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) has extended the hours of its pediatrics clinic to 8:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 6 p.m. on Fridays. These new hours should help parents who work during the day or are unable to set appointments during normal working hours. The extended hours also come as part of an effort by the hospital to reduce emergency room utilization for non emergent care. “We found that our ER utilization really spiked between 5 and 8 p.m. for clinic-level symptoms,” said Ken Laube, Medical Home Port business manager with NHP. “Some of (those visits) are after work or after school, types of situations where parents just couldn’t make it in prior to that. By having longer pediatric availability, we hope to be more convenient for the patient.” If a child needs to be seen for an emergency, then the ER is the place to go. However, if a child has clinicaltype symptoms, i.e., sore throat, congestion, cough, runny nose, simple rashes, earache, stomachache or things that parents would normally call and make an appointment for, then taking advantage of the extended clinic hours is the best option. “There are distinct benefits when children are seen by their pediatrician,

you don’t have that established history (as you do being seen in your own Medical Home Port).”

The later hours will still be by appointment that can be made by phone at 505-7121, through secure e-mail utilizing RelayHealth or with TRICARE Online at www.tricareonline.com. There will be one provider along with a support staff including a scheduling agent. The later hours will not cause a decrease in any of the services provided during regular daytime hours. “It will be full scope care,” said Cmdr. Kelly Hamon, department head for NHP Pediatrics and Immunization Clinics. “Preparations have been made so that if a child is seen here in the clinic during those extended hours and we need services such as labs, x-rays or medications, they will all be provided at that visit,” Hamon said. Asked about the difference between ER and being seen at the pediatrics clinic, Hamon said, “If your child has an emergency, by all means get them to the emergency room. For the acute need, if they can’t get into see their PCM during the day, we now have an extended hour provider. I would rather (patients) come and see us in (pediatrics) than go to the ER. We are the ones that see them and know them best.” Note: The hospital will be following the use of these extended hours closely. If the new hours are successful, it may lead to extended hours in other clinics.

Naval Hospital Pensacola satellite pharmacy hours NHP’s new satellite pharmacy is located next to the Naval Air Station Pensacola Commissary. The satellite pharmacy provides beneficiaries a convenient location to pick-up prescription refills outside of the main hospital. The satellite pharmacy also includes a drive-through window for refill pick-ups. As the third-busiest pharmacy in the Navy, NHP has been working

hard to make this new satellite a reality to better serve local beneficiaries. The satellite pharmacy hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. (drive-through 8 a.m.-6 p.m.), and Saturday, 9 a.m.3 p.m. (drive-through 8 a.m.-3 p.m.). Beneficiaries are still requested to call in refills through the automated system, 505-6459, for pick-up at the new site.

Whiting Field celebrates Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Story, photo by Ens. Emily Hegarty NASWF PAO


hiting Field’s Diversity Committee celebrated Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month recently with a luncheon in the auditorium. Alongside a buffet representative of the many different cultures and ethnicities encompassed in this celebration, the luncheon featured a slide show depicting Asian American and Pacific Islander government and military leaders such as American Samoan-born Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, and Rear Adm. Raquel Bono and her brother, Rear Adm. Anatolio B. Cruz III, the first two Filipino American siblings to hold flagofficer rank simultaneously. AZ1 Jennifer Jackson, former president of the Diversity Committee, took the lead role in setting up the luncheon. She recently passed the torch to AC2 Mario Santis, who is the current president of the committee. In addition to organizing the luncheon, Jackson lent her cooking talents to the Kalua pork and pot stickers she made, eliciting much praise from the attendees. The green Thai curry cooked by Eve Marshall for the event, as well as the Cantonese noodles made by Norita Quebedaux, were also big hits. The next event that the group

plans to celebrate is Hispanic Heritage Month in September. Stated Jackson: “We usually have a block-party style celebration – a lot of people come out for it.” For last year’s celebration, the committee hosted an outdoor event complete with food, music and child-friendly activities. “We will do our best to duplicate the success of that program but will factor in the heat index and amount of preparation and set up that went into it,” she noted. Jackson noted that the Diversity Committee celebrates all major diversity focus months, such as Women’s History Month and Black History Month. The eight members meet weekly before events in the AMO School building conference room or operations building conference room to prepare. Asian American Pacific Islander month initially began as Asian/Pacific American Heritage week, after Congress passed a 1978 joint resolution proclaiming that the first week in May be designated as such. Congress voted to expand the celebration to a full month in 1990, after ac-

knowledging that many significant Asian American and Pacific Islander achievements occurred in May. These achievements include the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to the United States as well as “Golden Spike Day,” the day upon which the transcontinental railroad was joined, which was completed with significant involvement from Chinese laborers. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have been serving in

the United States Navy since the 19th century. As stated by President Barack Obama at an AAPI Heritage Month celebration at the White House May 28, 2013, “generations of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders helped build this country, and helped to defend this country, and to make America what it is today.” Asian American and Pacific Islanders Heritage month was created to celebrate and educate U.S. citizens on the traditions and culture

of the individuals identifying with this group, which includes more than 50 ethnic and language groups. In 2013, more than 20,000 active-duty sailors identified themselves as Asian American or Pacific Islander, a demographic representative of 6.5 percent of our active-duty naval force. In addition, 4,000 reservists and 18,900 Navy civilian employees identified themselves as Asian American and Pacific Islander.

As Mars rover Curiosity approaches its one-year landing anniversary, eyes are on summer’s skies From http://www.jpl.nasa.gov

By Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

The Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Nov. 26, 2011. Mars rover Curiosity landed successfully on the floor of Gale Crater Aug. 6, 2012. The overarching science goal of the mission is to assess whether the landing area has ever had or still has environmental conditions favorable to microbial life, both its habitability and its preservation. Curiosity is about twice as long (about 3 meters or 10 feet) and five times as heavy as NASA’s twin Mars Exploration Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, launched in 2003. It inherited many design elements from them, including sixwheel drive, a rocker-bogie suspension system and cameras mounted on a mast to help the mission’s team on Earth select exploration targets and driving routes. Curiosity carries equipment to gather samples of rocks and soil, process them and distribute them to onboard test chambers inside analytical instruments. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena, Calif., builder of the Mars Science Laboratory, engineered Curiosity to roll over obstacles up to 65 centimeters (25 inches) high and to travel up to about 200 meters (660 feet) per day on Martian terrain. Curiosity landed near the foot of a layered mountain inside Gale Crater. Layers of this mountain contain minerals that form in water and

One of the best shows in town is free, and is coming to a sky near you – on a regular basis. The International Space Station (ISS), whose construction began in 1998, is the result of international development, research and cooperation between five participant space agencies from the United States, Canada, Russia, Japan and Europe. Though the space shuttle program has ended, international flights are planned to keep the ISS operational through 2020 and possibly until 2028. As the largest space station facility ever orbited, it is quite easily visible to the naked eye. No telescope is necessary to view the ISS as it passes over Pensacola on its regular orbits. Appearing as a bright, moving “star,” the ISS can be seen shortly after dark and before dawn. Binoculars help to locate the ISS but are not necessary. NASA’s website for the ISS gives local information by city for locating and observing the ISS and any supply ships, if they are scheduled to rendezvous. To observe the ISS on its next pass, visit http://spotthestation. nasa.gov/. Click on “Location Lookup.” The time, duration of the flyover, elevation angle in the sky and compass headings are listed. Set an alarm on your watch or cell phone so you don’t miss it. It’s easy and fun to be a part of the ongoing ISS mission – as an active observer.






may also preserve organics, the chemical building blocks of life. The portion of the crater floor where Curiosity landed has an alluvial fan likely formed by water-carried sediments. On July 9, Curiosity drove 135 feet (41 meters), the third drive of a journey of many months from the “Glenelg” area to Mount Sharp. The mission recently finished investigating science targets in the Glenelg area, about 500 yards (half

a kilometer) east of where Curiosity landed. The mission’s next major destination is at the lower layers of Mount Sharp, about five miles (eight kilometers) southwest of Glenelg. The July 9 drive brought Curiosity’s odometry to about 325 feet (99 meters) since completing the Glenelg investigations and about 0.51 mile (0.95 kilometer) since landing on Mars in August 2012. Mount Sharp, in the middle of

Gale Crater, exposes many layers where scientists anticipate finding evidence about how the ancient Martian environment changed and evolved. At targets in the Glenelg area, where Curiosity worked for the first half of 2013, the rover found evidence for an ancient wet environment that had conditions favorable for microbial life. This means the mission already has accomplished its main science objective.

Jokes & Groaners Dim astronomy jokes ... The parents of Renaissance astronomer Copernicus once scolded him, saying “Copernicus, young man – when are you going to come to terms with the fact that the world does not revolve around you?” How far can you see on a clear day? Nintey-three million miles ... from here to the sun. How many astronomers does it take to change a light bulb? None. Astronomers aren’t afraid of the dark. What is more useful: the sun or the moon? The moon, because the moon shines at night when you want the light, whereas the sun shines during the day when you don’t need it. The best thing about NASA’s programs: your tax dollar is guaranteed to go farther.

NEX celebrates successes at annual awards ceremony From staff reports

At the July 12 Navy Exchange (NEX) annual awards ceremony, the conclusion of the presentations came with a surprise. After NEX General Manager Steve Foster finished recognizing a year’s worth of accomplishments by NEX employees, the show was brought to a finish with the presentation of a Navy Meritorious Civilian Service Award by NASP command leadership to the unsuspecting Foster. “For unparellelled operational support, technical acumen, and exceptional achievement as Navy Exchange general manager, Naval Air Station Pensacola, from February 2010 to February 2013,” said NASP Executive Cmdr. David Jasso, who read the citation for the award. “During his tenure, he has increased sales within the exchange business areas by 17 percent and increased the NEX dividend to local MWR ... his tireless efforts have resulted in new and innovative annual events to the local NEX calendar that have touched

every military and civilian employee onboard NAS Pensacola, ranging from energy awareness partnerships with the (NASP) Public Works Department to special nights honoring newly promoted chiefs ... there is no greater measure of an individual’s leadership than to look at the progression of his employees within his system. Six dif-

ferent managers have been selected from his direct staff for promotion within the NEX system to store manager positions. Countless others have benefitted from his training and mentorship as exhibited by inter-departamental and system promotions. “In a year of sequestration, economic uncertainty and reduced

consumer spending, profitability increased 17 percent, where most CONUS stores saw considerable declines. His exceptional professionalism, initiative and dedication to duty reflected pride upon himself and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.”

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; go to www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247 CONUS; (202) 470-5546 OCONUS (may be additional charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows a victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services and safety interventions such as a Military Protective Order (MPO), separation from offender, expedited transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim can report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), SARC, and his/her CO shall commence an investigation. Restricted reporting allows a confidential report, which does not trigger either command nor law enforcement notification and the victim can have a SAPR VA, and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim can disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care provider and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 VA, call 449-9231/2. To contact the SARC during working hours, call 452-5990, ext. 0; or during and after working hours, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
