Blue Angels announce 2017 officers • Thousands turn out for beach air show From Blue Angels Public Affairs
U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, announced officers selected for the 2017 air show season, July 16. The squadron selected three F/A-18 demonstration pilots, events coordiC-130 nator, demonstration pilot, flight surgeon, supply officer, and administration officer to join a previously selected executive officer on the 2017 team. Each officer was recommended for selection by Chief of Naval Air Training Rear Adm. Dell Bull, and ultimately approved by Chief of Naval Air Forces Vice Adm. Mike Shoemaker, for final selection to the 2017 Blue Angels team.
Many highly qualified Navy and Marine Corps officers submit applications to join the Blue Angels each year. “It is such a privilege to have so many talented officers apply to be part of the Blue Angels tradition of showcasing the Navy and Marine Corps to the American public,” said Cmdr. Ryan Bernacchi, flight leader and commanding officer for the 2016 team. “I am inspired by all of those who applied this year and we have an exceptional group to add to next year’s team.” The Blue Angels select finalists to interview at the team’s home base of NAS Pensacola during the week of the Pensacola Beach Air Show each year. The team makes selections at the See Blues on page 2
In 1995, he was assigned to Marine Attack Squadron 311, where he served as the Maintenance Material Control Officer for a 20-plane AV-8B squadron. While serving with the Tomcats, Chipman deployed as part of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) and participated in various See MATSG-23 on page 2

Pokémon, no: Base officials discourage use of game From NASP Public Affairs
Using the popular new cellphone application game, Pokémon Go, onboard NAS Pensacola (NASP) and NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) is raising concerns and potential security violations. Other than sites open to the public, e.g., National Naval Aviation Museum, Pensacola Light-

Sailors taking fall classes should start tuition assistance approval process now Story, photo by Ed Barker NETPDC Public Affairs
Sailors planning to take college courses this fall using tuition assistance (TA) should submit their requests as soon as possible, so they may be reviewed and approved before classes start. According to Ernest D’Antonio, the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center’s (NETPDC) Voluntary Education (VolEd) program director, the number one reason for problems with TA requests is late applications. “Summer is a histori-
cally slow time in terms of receiving and processing TA requests,” said D’Antonio. “Sailors who get a headstart on their applications have the best chance of having their requests approved. Service members are re-
quired to obtain approval for TA funding before the official start of a course.” D’Antionio added that TA approval is a multi-step process, and if there is a problem, the See TA now on page 2

The journey never really stops for a military family By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
t 7 a.m., the summer sun was already shining hot and bright. I found space among the passengers on the train platform. My husband, Francis, hastily parked my luggage at my feet, inadvertently nicking my toe in the process. “Ooo, sorry Hon, but I’d better get to work … call me when you get to your mother’s” he said as he leaned down to give me a quick kiss good-bye, wearing his khaki uniform — buttoned, tucked, pinned and polished. In 22 years as a Navy wife, I have become quite accustomed to good-byes, but this one felt different. I observed the other passengers waiting, and drew conclusions about their lives. A sleepy student, a hip grandmother, an arrogant businessman, a frumpy divorcee. It dawned on me that they had taken notice of Francis’ uniform, and deduced, “A military family.” The uniform that I scrubbed ink stains out of,

ironed countless times, hung on the back of the kitchen door, and often took for granted, had defined us for more than two decades. The uniform dictates that I am a military spouse and our children are “military brats.” It is a sign that Francis has dedicated his career to military service. It tells a tale of duty, deployments, separation, transition, challenges, hardships, patriotism, pride and adventure. The uniform speaks to the strength, resiliency, and courage of the people who wear it, wash it, and hang it on the back of their kitchen doors. At our wedding in 1993, Francis was a young Navy lieutenant and I was brandnew attorney. Within two years, we

In another couple years, we were in rural England,
where Anna was born with the help of an Irish midwife, and where Francis drove a beat up Fiat on dark, winding roads to stand the watch. A few years later, we were in Virginia Beach, and Francis completed a sea tour, three shore tours and a yearlong deployment to Djibouti, Africa, while our family grew to include our youngest daughter, Lillian. After a three-year adventure in Germany, where Francis worked at Africa Command, we found ourselves at Naval Station Mayport in Florida, where we could see dolphins, frigates and destroyers in the Atlantic waves just outside our base house’s kitchen window. Now, in Rhode Island at the Naval War College, we watch our children use their skills as military children to succeed in high school and college. A rooster suddenly crowed from behind a house across the tracks, bringing me back to the present. I gulped hard, remembering that at the end of the month, after 28 meaningful years of military service, Francis will be retiring from the military.
“Where do we go from here?” I wondered, squinting at the sun’s reflection on the tracks. Francis and his uniform were long gone, and I was there, just another passenger on the crowded platform. Is this what it’s like in the civilian world? “Stand clear of the yellow line, fast train approaching,” blared from the loudspeakers. Instinctively, I gripped my heart, as a flash of metal and momentum blew by, sucking the air from my chest and clearing the cache of my wandering mind. With newfound clarity, I realized that our military identity lies deep within our hearts, not in outward signs and symbols. In a month, Francis’ uniform will be stored in the back of the hall closet, but our family will always be military, through and through. The Number 95 train arrived right on time, and as I stepped off the platform and onto the train, I knew that our military life was not coming to an end. We are on to the next stop as our journey continues.

‘American Connections’ media outreach program replaces Navy’s legacy Fleet Hometown News program By MC3 Jamal McNeill Navy Office of Community Outreach
ILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – The Navy recently announced the American Connections Media Outreach Program, a new and innovative means to share news and information about its Sailors, ships and the Navy’s mission with Americans across the country. The program, announced via NavAdmin 148/16, modernizes and replaces the Navy’s legacy Fleet Hometown News (FHTN) program. It was established to share the Navy story in media across the country serving markets which generally do not receive Navy news and information. The program leverages Sailors’ local connections to communities across America – hometown, location of high school or college attended, a family member’s hometown, etc. – as well as the relationships that exist between Navy units and their namesake cities and states, to ensure Americans throughout the country understand their Navy, its mission and its contribution to national security. The program is managed by the Navy Office of Community Outreach (NAVCO), whose mission is to inform, educate and increase understanding of the Navy, its people, and its importance to national security and prosperity. Along with providing a better understanding about the Navy to Americans, the program also helps maintain the relationships that exist between Navy units
and their namesake cities and states, while making a positive impact on the morale of participating Sailors and namesake units. The American Connections Media Outreach Program has three primary components. The first, NAVCO’s Fleet Content Sharing Service, ensures that thousands of highquality stories and photos produced for official Navy outlets each year are shared with civilian media. NAVCO has a team of specialists which searches dozens of Navy websites and other products, finds stories and photos, identifies local connections or namesake ties, and distributes them to media across the country. Under this component, a story about a Sailor of the Year from Des Moines, Iowa, found on www.navy.mil could be shared with more than 100 media outlets in the Des Moines market; a story about USS Alabama (SSBN 731) completing a patrol, which appeared on the Commander, Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet website could be shared with thousands of media across the entire state. The key, NAVCO officials say, is the identification of local ties such as

a hometown, in all stories and photo captions submitted to official Navy media outlets. While NAVCO reviews photos and stories shared with navy.mil, DVIDS (http://www. dvids hub.net/) and many other sources, commands are also encouraged to include email@example.com when distributing photos and stories. “It is great to hear and see the photos I take end up around the country,” said USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) SN Jamaal Liddell, from Jacksonville, Fla. “It is even better to let the person in the photo know that their parents got to see their photo because the local media was able to get their hands on the photo through the NAVCO program.” Under the second component, Media Production Visits, NAVCO deploys small production teams to commands to produce feature stories and accompanying photos on as-
signed Sailors. The stories are provided to the local media outlets where Sailors have local connections and posted on the NAVCO’s media outreach blog (http://www.navyoutreach.blogs pot.com/). The blog makes it easy for Sailors to share their stories using their own social media networks. NAVCO also provides each participating command with detailed media feedback reports with links to all coverage. “The team that NAVCO sent to do feature stories here in Sasebo was great,” said MC3 James Hunt, from Puyallup, Wash. “As a mass communication specialist, I am the one usually on the other side of the story. It was great to have the opportunity to share my story and show what I do in the Navy with family and friends back home.” The third component is NAVCO’s Media Advisory
Service, which preserves a popular capability from the legacy FHTN program, allowing Sailors to receive recognition in local media when they receive awards, earn qualifications, retire, reenlist, get promoted or reach other career milestones. Since its inception, the American Connections Media Outreach Program has shared more than 12,000 stories, photos and other products with media across the United States, reaching more than 250 million Americans, according to NAVCO officials. For more information about NAVCO and the American Connections Media Outreach Program visit http://www. outreach. navy.mil/ or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Small business to construct LCS facility at Naval Station Mayport By Sue Brink Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast Public Affairs
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) Southeast awarded a multipleaward design-build construction contract (MACC) July 14 to seven small businesses for work throughout the Southeast. The seven small businesses include the ARTEC Group of Sarasota, Fla; OroconCarothers JV2 of Oxford, Miss; Whitesell-Green Inc. of Pensacola; Desbuild Inc. of Hyattsville, Md.; Southeast Cherokee Construction Inc. of Montgomery, Ala.; Leebcor Services, LLC of Williams-
burg, Va.; and Howard W. Pence Inc. of Elizabethtown, Ky. The first project or task order was awarded to ARTEC Group in the amount of $12,228,057, for the design and construction of the Littoral Combat Ship Mission Module Readiness Center at Naval Station Mayport. Work there is expected to be completed by February 2018. The other six entities were awarded a minimum guarantee in the amount of $1,000. “Awarding this contract brings us closer to the development of additional infrastructure necessary to support homeporting of littoral combat ships at Naval Station Mayport,” said Capt. Wes McCall, commanding officer, Naval Station
Mayport. “LCS is the future of our Navy and we are excited to be part of that future.” MACC contracts are used to prequalify a group of contractors with respect to performance, experience, capability and safety, and then task orders are issued to them for projects which meet the parameters of each MACC. MACCs ultimately save the government time and resources. Work to be performed under the MACC includes new construction, renovation, alteration, demolition and repair work in support of Department of Defense activities, and all work will be performed primarily in the NAVFAC
Southeast area of responsibility. Projects issued under this contract will require either single discipline or multi-discipline design services, or may include 100 percent performance specifications. The seven vendors will compete for task orders under the terms and conditions of the awarded contract for the 60month term of the contract, which includes a base year and four option years, and is expected to be completed by July 2021. Small business, which includes 8(a) firms, play a vital role in the American economy – employing half of the country’s workforce, creating nearly two out of every three new American jobs.

NMOTC launches Navy’s first flight medic course By HM2 Matthew Clutter Navy Medicine Operational Training Center Public Affairs
he Naval Aerospace Medicine Institute (NAMI) launched a new course July 11 at the Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) in Pensacola for seven search and rescue hospital corpsmen. The Flight Medic Course (FMC) is where SAR corpsmen will receive their required flight medical training. In the past, this training was done mostly within Sailors’ respective commands. No formal course existed to provide standardized training across the fleet until the Navy joined with the Army and Air Force in 2004 to provide a more structured education. Now, the services have decided to go their separate ways with the last joint program ending April 1. The Navy course moved from Fort Rucker, Ala., to Pensacola with many changes along the way. “This program was starting from the ground up,” said Lt. Cmdr. Malissa Wickersham, FMC department head, who arrived at NAMI in January to take on the daunting task. “Logistically, it’s been interesting.” The logistics included everything from ordering textbooks to placing a full-size simulation helicopter. NAMI set up simulated H-60 and V-22 Osprey aircraft, as they are the current
operational standard in the fleet. Aside from the logistical requirements, the curriculum has received minor changes as well. Wickersham said most of the course content will remain the same including foundations of international trauma life support, pediatric education for prehospital professionals, and advanced cardiovascular life support classes. NAMI has added more classroom study in anatomy and physiology, which has lengthened the course from five to seven weeks. This will also allow instructors to provide explanations of why certain techniques are used as they are teaching them – a common complaint that arose in the previous course. The FMC was launched in only a matter of months, and Wickersham anticipates continued changes in the future as class sizes grow to the expected 12 students, perhaps even more as long as the 2-1 student-to-instructor ratio is maintained. Wickersham is fully confident in the new FMC and its staff, despite the quick timeline

to get the course set up and possible changes in the future. “Every instructor here has been involved with search and rescue (operations), either in the billet or as an in-route care nurse in the back of a helicopter transporting patients,” she said. “We’ve all been deployed to a war zone and have the real-life experience.” She also believes the challenges of getting the course up and running will all be worth it as the students come through for training. “Teaching these hands-on skills to students is going to be
a huge reward,” Wickersham said. The students in the class seem equally excited to be part of Navy Medicine’s newest education program. “What better way to practice Navy Medicine than in the back of a helicopter,” said HN Alexander Moser, a FMC student. “It feels respectable to make history and pave the way for future corpsmen to follow.” HA Jace R. Borowiak, also an FMC student, agreed, adding, “When I wake up, my job is to help people. It’s an adrenaline rush, and the fast-
paced medicine is what I am looking forward to as a SAR corpsman.” NAMI is part of NMOTC, the global leader in operational medicine, supporting multiple detachments throughout the country in training for operational medicine and aviation survival.

Veteran pilot from Milton reflects on career in flight Story, photo by Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
s the aircraft approached the carrier, it became clear that this would be no ordinary landing. Putting a Vought F4U Corsair down on an aircraft carrier was a tricky task under ideal circumstances. But this day, the seas would be an enemy as fierce as any Eugene “Red” James had faced during his time in the Pacific campaign in World War II. As he approached the ship, the carrier pitched side-to-side like a metronome in the 20-foot swells. With no choice but to commit to a landing, James called upon every bit of his training and experience as a Marine Corps pilot. He turned his craft into the wind, lined up his approach, and dropped from the sky towards the roiling deck. Journalist Tom Brokaw called them “The Greatest Generation,” the men and women who served around the globe during World War II and the Korean War. There are countless stories of heroism, sacrifice and perseverance that justify that nickname. Each member of the Greatest Generation has their own personal stories, tales of their contributions to the war effort. James, a World War II and Korean War decorated veteran, is one of them. He also has strong ties to Milton and the history of Whiting Field. Sitting in his living room in Milton, James’ recollections of his time as a Marine Corps and Navy pilot, culminating as an instructor pilot at NAS Whiting Field (NASWF), are lively and remarkable. James also maintains a tangible connection to his aviation past: a treasure trove of photos, documents, uniforms and memorabilia. James’ medals, logbooks, citations,
flight suit and other mementos serve as his connection to his aviation accomplishments, and allow him to share his experiences with others. Born in Brewton, Ala., in 1922, James was raised in West Virginia. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, James enlisted in the Marine Corps and was designated as a naval aviator at NAS Pensacola in 1943. His training then took him to NAS Jacksonville, where he trained on the F4U Corsair, and was later assigned to MCAS Cherry Point, N.C., and Mojave, Calif., where he trained to become an aircraft carrier pilot. Looking back on his Corsair training, James still has vivid recollections of his instructors and his first lesson in flying that airframe. “I remember one of my first lessons,” James said. “Back then, I was in a one seater, and the instructor was standing on the wing, and he would say ‘punch this, punch that, touch that, now go.’ ” James’affinity for the Corsair is obvious. “The Corsair had 2,000 horses,” he said. “The F6F (Grumman Hellcat) was not as good of an airplane as the Corsair. I always looked forward to jumping in the Corsair.” In June 1945, James got his first

taste of combat during the Battle of Okinawa as a member of VMF311 “Hell’s Bells.” This unit gained notoriety for being the first to use the Corsair as a close airsupport dive bomber in support of Marines on the ground. Following the American victory on Okinawa, James saw service on the Japanese mainland. Upon conclusion of the war, Red transferred to the Marine Corps reserves, married his wife of nearly 70 years, Dorothy, and had children. Life was peaceful until he was recalled to active duty upon commencement of hostilities in Korea. Because of his training and experience flying the Corsair, James was assigned to the famous VMA/F-312 “Checkerboarders,” and soon found himself flying combat missions from the USS Badoeng Strait (CVE 116) and the USS Bataan (CVL 29). During this period, James flew 101 combat missions, earning seven Air Medals and two Distinguished Flying Crosses, as well as the Purple Heart. It was while returning from one of these combat missions that James found himself on that
harrowing approach to the carrier. As he approached the ship, he carefully timed his touchdown to coincide with the time at which the ship was at the midpoint of its back-and-forth rolling. Skillfully and gingerly, James placed his aircraft down on the flight deck. Upon climbing out of the plane, James noticed that his left wheel was barely on the edge of the flight deck, inches away from disaster. Following his service in Korea, James and his wife felt the calling of the Florida Panhandle and settled down in Milton, where James served in several capacities at Whiting Field: instructor pilot, schedules officer, flight officer, and assistant officer-in-charge of Whiting South Field Flight Unit. James’ service in the Marine Corp ended in 1956. During his time at Whiting Field, James was highly regarded for both his flying skills as well as for his abilities as an instructor. In a handwritten letter from student pilot George L. Hodge dated October 1953, James was heralded by Hodge for identifying and helping re-

solve each student’s shortcomings. “I think you are an excellent pilot,” Hodge wrote, “And I feel fortunate to have had you to help me through Whiting.” After his distinguished service in the Marines, James founded a construction company in Milton. The company was a success, and many of the buildings and homes we see every day in Milton were built by him. As an active participant in Milton civic life, James served as president of both the Lion’s Club and the Navy League. He was also named a Knights of Columbus grand knight. On two occasions, James was honored as Santa Rosa County’s man of the year. One legacy of James’ flying career can be seen displayed at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NAS Pensacola. The museum has a static display of an F4U Corsair, tail number 18; James piloted that very aircraft during his service in the Korean War. Recently, James was invited to participate in the museum’s Discovery Saturday series, in which the role of the Corsair was highlighted. “What are the odds?” James said. “They made 12,571 Corsairs, and what are the odds that I had flown this one?” Even at age 94, James’ enthusiasm for flight has not waned. He took to the skies over Pensacola Beach as a member of the Veteran’s Flight for the 2016 Pensacola Beach Air Show, “Red, White, and Blues.” Members of the Greatest Generation can be considered “living libraries,” keepers of memories and experiences that can never be replaced. As the members of that generation pass away, those memories and experiences can be lost as well. Men and women like James serve their country one last time by sharing, documenting, archiving their thoughts and memories of one of the most pivotal periods in American history. When asked what advice he had for today’s aviators, James replied confidently, “Live life like you’re going to live forever.”

With Juno’s recent arrival at Jupiter, imaginations and eyes are on summer’s skies From http://www.nasa.gov
By Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor
NASA’s Juno is now poised to shine a spotlight on the origins and interior structure of the largest planet in our solar system. As the world waits for Juno’s first closeup images of Jupiter (to be taken Aug. 27 during the spacecraft’s next pass by the planet), NASA continues to explore the solar system to help answer fundamental questions about how we came to be, where we are going and whether we are alone in the universe. “Juno is the latest example of the extraordinary science we have to look forward to right in our own solar system,” said NASA Planetary Division Director Jim Green. “There are many uncharted, promising worlds and objects we are eager to explore with our current and future missions.” The James Webb Space Telescope (Webb telescope), set to launch in 2018, can observe not only faint objects across the universe, but also all of Earth’s neighboring planets and their moons within the solar system. Webb’s angular and spectral resolution will allow us to observe these targets with unprecedented sensitivity and even follow geologic activity. With Juno exploring Jupiter, NASA is also intrigued by its largest moons. Io’s intense geological activity makes it the most volcanically active world in the solar system,
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. You can sign up for e-mail alerts, too. It’s easy and fun to be a part of the ongoing ISS mission – as an active observer.

something Webb could potentially follow-up with. And NASA has selected nine science instruments for a future mission to investigate whether Europa – a mysterious moon that scientists believe to have a liquid ocean beneath its icy surface – hosts habitable environments. Hubble, with its suite of upgraded instruments, has captured Jupiter’s auroras and found evidence of saltwater on Jupiter’s largest moon, Ganymede. The mission has been extended another five years, and NASA expects it to
continue to provide excellent science. On July 14, NASA celebrated the one-year anniversary of New Horizons’ flyby of Pluto, which brought the world unprecedented views of the dwarf planet and its moon, Charon. The mission has been extended to study an object in the Kuiper belt, an icy field of early building blocks of the solar system packed with primordial organics. In September, NASA will launch OSIRIS-REx (Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security-Regolith
Explorer), the first U.S. mission to a near-Earth asteroid (Bennu) to collect a sample for return to Earth in 2023. OSIRIS-REx will help unlock secrets of the history of our solar system, and shed light on how life may have come to be on our planet. “We are fortunate to live during a time when grand scientific quests are possible, and in a country that values curiosity and discovery as inherently noble pursuits,” said Paul Hertz, astrophysics division director at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

For August, the new moon is on Aug. 2. On the evening of Aug. 4, the waxing crescent moon will be just south of Mercury at 8 p.m., with brighter Venus to the lower right near the horizon, and Jupiter to their upper left. The moon passes just below Jupiter on the evening of Aug. 5. The moon is first quarter Aug. 10, and will not interfer with the peak of the Perseid meteor shower on the mornings of Aug. 12-13 this year. From a dark observing site, you can expect about a meteor a minute from 11 p.m. until dawn, with the radiant, Perseus, rising in the northeast about 11 p.m. The waxing gibbous moon passes 8 degrees north of Mars Aug. 12, then 4 degrees north of Saturn as well. The full moon, the Green Corn moon, occurs Aug. 18. The last quarter moon is

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.
