NAS Pensacola hosts OBAP Dream Flight Story, photo by Greg Mitchell NAS Pensacola Public Affairs

More than 150 high school students from Atlanta and other parts of the country visited Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola July 16 through the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals’ (OBAP) annual Project Aerospace Dream Flight, a partnership with Delta Airlines. The OBAP Dream Flight, a national initiative designed to foster interest among high school-aged students about potential careers in the aerospace industry, is an organizational mainstay, something NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Timothy Kinsella Jr. said is pivotal to the continued successes of the civilian and military aviation communities. “To have the opportunity to share with these young students extraordinary breadth of aviation training we do here at NAS Pensacola is really special,” he

said. “The history of this base is important to aviation communities everywhere and these young men and women will get an up close and personal view of naval aviation.” Designed to create awareness in and inspire potential aerospace careers, the OBAP Dream Flight, is a youth-focused program that provides an awareness and opportunity to cultivate an interest in aviation, according to Emmanuel Burke, the Atlanta OBAP Academy director. “We’re a national non-profit organization and one of the things we try and do is show these kids what’s available to them in the aerospace industry,” he said. “We’re showing them the ‘Cradle of Naval Aviation’ today, and we wanted them to be aware of not only opportunities that could be available to them in the civilian community, but in the military also.” While onboard NAS Pensacola, OBAP Dream Flight participants had the opportunity to

tour the National Naval Aviation Museum (NNAM), watch a regularly scheduled practice of the NAS Pensacola-based U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron – the Blue Angels – and tour Training Wing 6 facilities and simulators. “Visiting (NAS) Pensacola has made me want to be a pilot even more,” Kennedy Spencer, a junior at Langston Hughes

High School in Fairburn, Georgia said. “This trip has widened my opportunities to what I can do to reach my life goal of being a pilot, but maybe now I don’t want to limit myself to being an airline pilot; maybe I could be a Navy pilot.” Students also had the opportunity to view the NNAM’s Apollo 11 virtual reality ride on the 50th anniversary of the

Apollo 11 moon landing. OBAP, founded in 1976 to address unfair hiring practices among civilian airlines, has become a devoted advocate of minority Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) study. The organization strives to motivate youth to educationally prepare, increase minority See OBAP on page 2

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

NAVWAR Enterprise launches artificial intelligence prize challenge: $150,000 total cash prizes offered From Naval Information Warfare Systems Command Public Affairs

S

AN DIEGO, Calif. (NNS) – The Navy kicked off the Artificial Intelligence Applications to Autonomous Cybersecurity Challenge (AI ATAC), a prize competition seeking innovative machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML/AI) solutions for real-world cybersecurity challenges, July 8. Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR) and Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (PEO C4I) are sponsoring AI ATAC in part to gather insight and participation from nontraditional defense vendors, teams or individuals. While other government agencies have used prize challenges, this is a first for the NAVWAR enterprise. The first place entry will win $100,000. Second place will be awarded $50,000. “We are approaching innovation with disciplined urgency,” NAVWAR Commander Rear Adm. Christian Becker

How to submit a commentary

said. “This prize challenge presents a unique opportunity to cast a wider net to get the best technology to the fleet faster.” Managed by PEO C4I’s Information Assurance and Cyber Security Program Office (PMW 130), AI ATAC will explore the capability for endpoint security products to incorporate ML/AI models to detect and defeat indicators of compromise from various advanced malware strains. The program office partnered

with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a Department of Energy laboratory in Tennessee, which will provide facilities and expertise for evaluating the technical solutions. The challenge is open to all U.S. citizens and those with permanent residence status. The open period for submissions is through September 30. To be considered for the prizes, entrants need to provide an endpoint security solution and a white paper for evaluation. Winners are expected to

be announced in December. “We need to get after faster solutions from sectors of industry outside our traditional partners and we want to lower any barrier to entry. We believe by sponsoring AI ATAC we can quickly get new ideas about how we can incorporate AI and ML into our cybersecurity tool bag,” John T. Armantrout, PMW 130’s deputy program manager, said. “This challenge is designed for anyone with AI and ML knowledge – whether they’re from a company, a university, a research institution or even an individual or group of friends who have a good idea.” To learn more about the AI ATAC, including rules, criteria and eligibility requirements, visit https://www. challenge.gov/challenge/ artificial-intelligence-applications-to-autonomous-cybersecurity-challenge.

NDW commemorates 40 years of Fleet and Family Support Program By MC2 Jason Amadi Naval District Washington Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Naval District Washington (NDW) hosted a proclamation signing to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Fleet and Family Support Program (FFSP) on Joint Base AnacostiaBolling, July 10. Rear Adm. Carl Lahti, NDW commandant, signed a proclamation declaring July 16, 2019 the 40th anniversary of the FFSP, to be Fleet and Family Readiness Day, a time to recognize the program’s impact on the Navy. “Forty years ago, the Navy made a decision to put a real focus on families,” Andrew Freed, Work and Family Life (WFL) supervisor at Naval Support Activity Washington said. “They understand that if the family is doing well, the service member can maintain their focus and readiness.” Freed retired after 21 years of service in the Air Force and uses his military experience to comfort service members in distress. “The majority of our staff here are either former service members or spouses. We understand the military life, deployments and going through a permanent change of station. My wife told me she felt like a single parent when I was deployed. So when I talk to spouses married to deployed service members I say, ‘I know you feel like a single parent’ and immediately they connect,” Freed said. The FFSP is organized into four functional areas: WFL, Counseling, Advocacy and Prevention (CAP), Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) and the Navy

Gold Star program. Those programs offer services such as relocation assistance, family employment, clinical counseling, and emergency response. “As an ombudsman and staff member, I have seen the programs positively impact Sailors and families,” Carrie Mast, NDW regional WFL coordinator said. “The information, resources, workshops and classes for Sailors and family members provide the support they need, when they need it. “This information available allows Sailors and family members to acclimate to a new duty station, assignment and other life changes that can happen at a moment’s notice. Whether you are buying a car, moving, expanding your family, facing a deployment, Fleet and Family Support Centers have the tools to develop the skills needed to thrive in the military environment,” Mast continued. Freed said the Fleet and Family Support Center staff relish the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of service members. “The greatest joy I get in this job is when I know what a service member is going through and I’m able to speak about those subjects in a way where they know that I understand. Our whole staff sits around during our meetings and discuss what we call our ‘success stories.’ That’s the biggest paycheck that I get,” Freed said. Navy families in need of information can download the MyNavy Family application for mobile devices. The Navy community developed the app for spouses and families so Sailors can focus on their mission. The app is free and can be downloaded via the Apple App store, Google Play or in the Navy App Locker at https://applocker.navy.mil.

ODESA, Ukraine (NNS) – Ukranian President joined the Ukrainian Navy, military members from exercise Sea Breeze 2019, and the public to celebrate Navy Day in Odesa, Ukraine, July 7. While at the public event, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made remarks, presented medals to Ukrainian service members, visited with Ukrainians, toured foreign ships and attended several meetings and briefings. Adm. Ihor Voronchenko, commander of the Ukrainian Navy, and Vice Adm. Lisa M. Franchetti, commander, U.S. 6th Fleet, toured displays of Ukrainian naval technology and equipment as well as laid flowers in the Black Sea aboard a Ukrainian patrol boat in memory of fallen Ukrainian sailors. During remarks made at a Navy Day reception aboard the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Carney (DDG 64), Franchetti spoke about her experiences with Ukrainian sailors earlier in the day. “I was truly impressed by the sailors’ pride and professionalism,” Franchetti said. “The United States Navy stands firmly with Ukraine in support of its sovereignty and territorial integrity and condemns Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea and aggression in eastern Ukraine.” Sea Breeze is a U.S. and Ukraine co-hosted multinational maritime exercise held in the Black Sea and is designed to enhance interoperability of participating nations and strengthen maritime security and peace within the region.

Exercise Resolute Sun: U.S. Soldiers, Sailors and Marines combine training, improve readiness in amphibious operations

Marines with 2nd Transportation Support Vehicles offload vehicles of a trident pier during Resolute Sun

Story, photo by Lance Cpl. Scott Jenkins 2nd Marine Logistics Group

CAMP LEJEUNE, North Carolina – U.S. Marines with 2nd Transportation Support Battalion (TSB), Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics participated in exercise Resolute Sun from June 11 to 19. The exercise allowed Marines to increase combat operational readiness in amphibious and prepositioning operations while conducting joint training with the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy during a joint logistics over-the-shore scenario (JLOTS). JLOTS provides operational movement capabilities in places where access to and

from an area is not accessible. It is meant to strengthen interoperability between service branches so they can quickly build an improvised port and get equipment to and from wherever it is needed. The Marines started the exercise on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina and convoyed down to Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, more than 250 miles away. “We don’t get an opportunity to conduct long-range convoys like that all the time; it takes a lot of discipline to accomplish something of this scale,” 1st Sgt. Brent Sheets, company first sergeant of Alpha Company, 2nd TSB, said. “The Marines got to see that there is more behind their job

then the routine mission they do every day in garrison.” After the convoy, the Marines embarked 38 vehicles onto the USNS Watkins (TAKR-315), once they reached Joint Base Charleston. The USNS Watkins is part of the Navy’s Military Sealift Command 19 Large, Medium-Speed Roll-on/Roll-off Ships. The ship is used for prepositioning of ground vehicles and is designed to carry vehicles which are driven on and off the ship. After the ship was embarked with all cargo, it set sail for Fort Story, Virginia. There, the equipment was offloaded utilizing a trident pier built by the U.S. Army’s 331st Transportation Company, 11th Transportation Battalion, 7th

transportation Regiment. Simultaneously, Amphibious Construction Battalion 2, Naval Beach Group 2 conducted a beach landing utilizing the improved Navy lighterage system. “We’ve worked smoothly with the Marines during this exercise. They are our main counterparts,” CM1 Mark Paystrup, with Beach Master Unit 2, Battalion Cargo Group 10, said. “Because we work with them often, we are familiar with each other’s roles. What is more of an adjustment, is working with the Army. It is always good to practice that interoperability between the services.” The Navy-Marine Corps team works together all over the world, regulatory conducting beach landing operations together. The Army only has a few ship-to-shore assets, and Sailors and Marines make sure to capitalize on training with soldiers to improve functionality between them. “What we are doing today is exactly how we’re going to fight when we need too,” Lt. Col Jonathan Baker, the Commanding Officer of 2nd TSB, said. “We’ll never go to war alone. We’ll go as a coalition. It’s important to understand how to do this jointly.” Another benefit to the joint training environment is the ability to stay fiscally respon-

sible while conducting such a large exercise. Working together with the Army and Navy, the price can be spread out amongst the branches, with each unit only being held responsible for paying for the gear and supplies they need. “Doing a joint training exercise such as this one, allows for all branches to get connected and get the same amount of training,” Baker said. “This is training that they have to do, so if we can get connected to that, it provides us with cost-saving opportunity and unique training situations that we would normally get through warfare.” All 38 vehicles from 2nd TSB were able to be offloaded and redeployed via convoy 220 miles back to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina within two days of the USNS Watkins arriving in Virginia. “It takes a lot of individual actions to make something like this happen. That’s the individual Marine knowing his job and doing it effectively,” Capt. Brian Hassett, company commander of Alpha Company, 2nd TSB, said. “109 Marines worked together seamlessly as a unit to accomplish the mission, and that is something that needs to happen every time we go out, no matter where we are anywhere in the world.”

alking into the new administration office, you will be met with walls filled with Navy Blue Angels swag and the Alabama football team logo. Julie Broadwater is the new administration officer for NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) and it does not take long to notice her naval history. The retired Navy senior chief yeoman (YN) comes with a wealth of knowledge and is now settled in onboard the installation. Her last position was with Naval Education and Training Professional De-

velopment Center (NETPDC), Saufley Field and she is a former YN with the United States Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels. “I am looking forward to the new position and wanted to be back around Sailors,” Broadwater said. Originally from Hawthorne, Nevada, Broadwater is not the first in

her family to have served and retired in the Navy. Her father is retired Navy, her brother is active-duty Navy and her husband is a retired Navy senior

chief. The new administration officer is in charge of six personnel that help process the command correspondence, instructions

and directives. The office also handles the pay and personnel, and the limited duty Sailor program. Broadwater shared that there will be some chang-

es to the administration office, but they will be slow and will improve the efficiency and accuracy of the administrative processes. Getting to know Broadwater further, she shared a favorite memory from her naval career about an MC1 that she progressed with during her career. “We were both at Gulfport and then transferred together,” Broadwater said. “I went to the Blue Angels then he got selected too. It was great watching him progress as he went through the Navy Seaman-to-Admiral Commissioning Program. It was very rewarding and just one of many things I look back on.” The new administration officer is located in the command building and can be reached at (850) 623-7624 for any issues or concerns.

When thunder roars, go indoors • Stay alive: Lightning facts, figures and safety From www.weather.gov/safety/lightning

E

ach year in the United States, there are about 25 million cloud-toground lightning flashes and about 300 people struck by lightning. Of those struck, about 30 people are killed and others suffer lifelong disabilities. Most of these tragedies can be prevented. When thunderstorms threaten, get inside a building with plumbing and electricity, or a hard-topped metal vehicle! The National Weather Service collects information on weatherrelated deaths to learn how to prevent these tragedies. Many lightning victims say they were “caught” outside in the storm and could not get to a safe place. Other victims simply waited too long before seeking shelter. With proper planning, similar tragedies can be avoided. Some people were struck because they went back outside too soon. Stay inside a safe building or vehicle for at least 30 minutes after you hear the last thunder. While 30 minutes may seem like a long time, it is necessary to be safe.

phones. Others were in contact with plumbing, outside doors or window frames. Avoid contact with these electrical conductors when a thunderstorm is nearby. What you might not know about lightning: All thunderstorms produce lightning and are dangerous. Fortunately, people can be safe if they follow some simple guidelines when thunderstorms are forecast. Lightning often strikes outside the area of heavy rain and may strike as far as 10 miles from any rainfall. Many lightning deaths occur ahead of storms before any rain arrives or after storms have seemingly passed and the rain has ended. If you can hear thunder, you are in danger. Do not be fooled by blue skies. If you hear thunder, lightning is close enough to pose an immediate threat. Lightning leaves many victims with permanent disabilities.

Finally, some victims were struck inside homes or buildings while they were using electrical equipment or corded

logical disabilities, depression and other health problems. Avoid the lightning threat: Have a lightning safety plan. Know where you’ll go for safety and ensure you will have enough time to get there. Postpone activities. Consider postponing activities if thunderstorms are forecast. Monitor the weather. Once outside, look for signs of a developing or approaching thunderstorm such as towering clouds, darkening skies, or flashes of lightning. Get to a safe place. If you hear thunder, even a distant rumble, seek safety immediately. Fully enclosed buildings with wiring and plumbing are best. A hardtopped metal vehicle with the windows closed is also safe. Stay inside until 30 minutes after the last rumble of thunder. Sheds, picnic shelters, tents or covered porches do not protect you from lightning. If you hear thunder, do not use a corded phone except in an emergency. Cordless phones and cell phones are

safe to use. Keep away from electrical equipment and plumbling. Lightning will travel through the wiring and plumbing if your building is struck. Do not take a bath or shower, or wash dishes during a storm. Do not get caught outside: No place outside is safe when a thunderstorm is in the area. Get inside as soon as you hear thunder. Run to a substantial building or hard-topped metal vehicle as fast as you can, if you cannot get to a safe building or vehicle: Avoid open areas. Do not be the tallest object in the area. Stay away from isolated tall trees, towers or utility poles. Lightning tends to strike the taller objects in an area. Stay away from metal conductors such as wires or fences. Metal does not attract lightning, but lightning can travel long distances through it. If you are with a group of people, spread out. While this actually increases the chance that someone might get struck,

it tends to prevent multiple casualties, and increases the chances that someone could help if a person is struck. If someone is struck: Cardiac arrest is the immediate cause of death for those who die. Lightning victims do not carry an electrical charge and may need first aid immediately. Call for help. Call 9-1-1. Give first aid. Begin CPR if you are trained. Use an Automatic External Defibrillator if one is available. These units are lifesavers. Do not be a victim. If possible, move the victim to a safer place. Lightning actually can strike twice. Organized outdoor activities: It is essential that people in charge of organized outdoor activities understand the dangers of lightning and have a lightning safety plan. Do not be afraid to ask. If you hear thunder, it is time to get to a safe building or vehicle. Speak out. For more, visit www. weather.gov/lightning.

Pensacola native serves aboard nation’s newest carrier By Alvin Plexico Navy Office of Community Outreach

A

Pensacola, Florida, native and 2018 Pensacola Christian College graduate is serving in the U.S. Navy aboard the service’s newest aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78). MCSN Zachary Melvin is a mass communication specialist aboard the carrier homeported in Norfolk, Virginia. As a Navy mass communication specialist, Melvin is responsible for taking photos and writing stories to help share information about the Navy. Melvin credits success in the Navy to many of the lessons learned growing up in Pensacola. “I learned about the importance of dedication,” Melvin said. “It’s important to remember there’s something more important than myself.” Commissioned in 2017, Ford, or ‘Warship 78’ as she is known by the crew, is 1,106 feet long; longer than three football fields. The ship, a true floating city, weighs more than 100,000 tons and has a flight deck that is 256 feet wide.

Ford is the first of a class of aircraft carriers that offer significant performance improvements over the previous Nimitz-class aircraft carriers. The ship is equipped with the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) to launch aircraft, rather than steam catapults currently used aboard other aircraft carriers, eliminating the requirement to generate and store steam for catapults, which frees up space. EMALS and other new systems and operating concepts will allow the Ford to accomplish 25 percent more aircraft launches per day than its predecessor while requiring 25 percent fewer crewmembers, resulting in an estimated savings of $4 billion in operating costs over a 50-year life span. Continuing the tradi-

tions of those who served in World War II and since, a key element of the Navy the nation needs is tied to the fact that America is a maritime nation, meaning that the nation’s prosperity is tied to the ability to operate freely on the world’s oceans, according to Navy officials. More than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water; 80 percent of the world’s population lives close to a coast and 90 percent of all global trade by volume travels by sea. Melvin is playing an important part in America’s focus on rebuilding military readiness,

strengthening alliances and reforming business practices in support of the National Defense Strategy. “Our priorities center on people, capabilities and processes, and will be achieved by our focus on speed, value, results and partnerships,” Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer said. “Readiness, lethality and modernization are the requirements driving these priorities.” Though there are many ways for sailors to earn distinction in their command, community and career, Melvin is most proud of earning graduating from the Defense In-

formation School. “I was proud to graduate with a 90.7 GPA, which was just above my goal of a 90,” Melvin said. Serving in the Navy is a continuing tradition of military service for Melvin, who has military ties with family members who have previously served. Melvin is honored to carry on the family tradition. “My dad Eric Melvin is a lieutenant commander in the Navy and serves as a chaplain aboard USS New Orleans,” Melvin said. “I always looked up to my father and wanted to follow a similar route as he did by enlisting in the military before pursuing a carreer as an officer.” Sailors’ jobs are highly varied aboard the carrier. Approximately 2,600 men and women currently make up the ship’s crew, which keeps all parts of the aircraft carrier running smoothly – this includes everything from washing dishes and preparing meals to handling weaponry and maintaining the nuclear reactors. Another 2,500 men and women will form the air wing responsible for flying and maintaining the aircraft aboard the ship. “Sailors are the lifeblood of any warship and the men and women of the USS Gerald R. Ford

are the absolute best that our Navy has to offer,” Capt. John J. Cummings, commanding officer of USS Gerald R. Ford said. “Because of the work they do, Warship 78 sailors will take our ship over the horizon and answer our nation’s call in ways that have never been done before. Our Sailors are strong, resilient, and truly embody our ship’s motto of ‘Integrity at the Helm.’” Ford, like each of the Navy’s aircraft carriers, is designed for a 50-year service life. When the air wing is embarked, the ship will carry more than 70 attack jets, helicopters and other aircraft, all of which take off from and land aboard the carrier at sea. As a member of one of the U.S. Navy’s most relied upon capital assets, Melvin and other Ford sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes providing the Navy the nation needs. “I like knowing that I’m serving on the biggest and most advanced aircraft carrier in the world,” Melvin added. “It’s exciting being a part of the next generation of aircraft carriers. Serving in the Navy means we’re part of a team and we’re a family who looks out for each other. It also means getting to serve others.”

Saenger Classic Movie Series and new Alfred Hitchcock Classic Series

The Saenger Theatre Classic Movie Series is back with a whole new lineup, including Creature from the Black Lagoon and Star Wars.

From Kathy Summerlin Director of Booking and Marketing Saenger Theatre The Saenger Classic Movies Series line-up is final. Members of the Saenger eNews voted in a survey that concluded at noon, June 28, and we heard their pleas. The theatre is pleased to present the following line-up for the Gulf Coast: • July 20: Babes in Arms • Aug. 3: The Adventures of Robin Hood • Aug. 10: House of Wax • Aug. 17: Singin’ in the Rain • Aug. 24: The Public Enemy • Aug. 31: Creature from the Black Lagoon • Sept. 7: Arsenic and Old Lace • Sept. 14: Citizen Kane • Sept. 21: Star Wars All movies for the Saenger Classic Movie Series are $6, with a 10-pack for all 10 movies available at a discount of $50. “We are extremely excited for this year’s movie series,” Kathy Summerlin, director of booking and marketing for the Saenger Theatre, said. “There

are some movies that we have never screened for our audiences and it’s going to be an amazing summer of movies at the Saenger.” The Alfred Hitchcock Classic Movie Series will screen the following movies at 2 p.m. on Sundays: • Aug. 4: Vertigo • Aug. 11: Rear Window • Aug. 18: North by Northwest • Aug. 25: Dial M for Murder “The Alfred Hitchcock Classic Movies Series was an idea from our General Manager, Doug Lee, and the idea was to offer something in the day time so people don’t have to drive at night and gets them out of the heat and into the super-cooled Saenger Theatre,” Summerlin said. Tickets for the Alfred Hitchcock Classic Movie Series are $6 each and you can purchase a fourpack at a discount of $20. Tickets for both seasons are now on sale and are only available at the Saenger Theatre Box Office.
