CNO releases 2016-2020 navigation From Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs

Greenert’s 2016-2020 Navigation Plan defines how the Navy will use its resources to safely and effectively pursue the vision detailed in Sailing Directions. Each year since Greenert released the Sailing Directions, the navigation plan has described the annual Navy’s budget submission for the future years. In the plan, Greenert explains the requirement to the four enduring functions around which the Navy has historically organized, trained and equipped: deterrence, sea control, power projection and maritime security, as well as capabilities related to a new fifth function, all

station Disorientation Demonstrator and Bldg. 3944 is the command’s Aviation Water Survival Training Facility. “Our mission is to provide naval aviation survival training program curriculum,” Higgins said. ASTC teaches a variety of subjects relevant to an aviator’s

survival. Aviation physiology (exposure to altitude), human performance (sleep, stress and nutrition) sensory physiology (spatial orientation and disorientation), acceleration physiology, life support systems (gear and how it’s used) and egress training (parachute egress and underwater

egress) are among the subjects. ASTC’s customers include Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC), Aviation Preflight Indoctrination (API) course training, Naval Aircrew Candidates School (NAC) classes and refresher students as well – already winged aviators. “We try to prevent mishaps from occurring, by providing physiological human factors training,” Higgins said. “Should a mishap occur, we give the aviators the tools they need in a mishap scenario to survive, be it over land or water.” The scope of project included Bldg. 3845 being remodeled and updated to create modern and efficient spaces for its classrooms, training areas, hyperbaric chamber, ejection seat trainer, offices, general storage space, and male and female staff locker rooms. Bldg. 3801 had its classroom spaces updated and renewed, and Bldg. 3944 had the interior of the pool resurfaced and its HVAC systems updated. The work took just more than a year. Kravecz was satisfied with the work, its outcome and Gilbane’s relationship with the Navy. “In the 30-plus years of doing construction (at NASP), this has been one of the shining examples of partnership between the contractor and the government.

come before me,” Hammond said. “The Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training is the exemplar training organization with the best, the brightest and most dedicated staff in all of Naval Service, and I am proud to be given this opportunity to serve as the CNATT commanding officer.” Hammond is a native of San Jose, Calif. He earned a bachelor of science degree in political science from the United States Naval Academy in 1989 and was commissioned an ensign in the United States Navy. He also earned a master of science degree in systems administration from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif., in 1994; master of arts in national security and strategic studies from the Naval War College Distance Education Program; and completed his doctoral degree in leadership studies from the University of San Diego in 2006. Hammond is a member of the Defense Acquisition Corps and is level III certified in the production, quality and manufacturing, life cycle logistics and program management career fields. Hammond’s first tour in the Navy was aboard the training ship “NE Brasil” (U27) as a foreign exchange officer, where he participated in UNITAS and completed a circumnavigation of the globe in support of U.S. Navy relations with the Brazilian navy. He served in Fighter Squadron 1 (VF-1), making two deployments aboard the USS Ranger (CV 61), and in Strike Fighter Squadron 25 (VFA-25) in Lemoore, Calif., where he served as maintenance/material control officer and assistant maintenance officer and deployed aboard the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70). Hammond served as the maintenance officer for the Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD) Navy Support Facility, Diego Garcia, British Indian Ocean Territory, and was subsequently assigned to Commander, Naval Air Force, Pacific in San Diego, Calif., where he served as the assistant plans and policy officer and maintenance data readiness officer. Overseas, he served as the Kuwait Air Force special project officer and Air Force maintenance officer for the Office of Military Cooperation – Kuwait. Upon the commissioning of the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), Hammond served as the AIMD production control officer and assistant maintenance officer. Following the ship’s change of homeport from Norfolk, Va., to San Diego, Hammond was assigned to the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT), but located in Patuxent River, Md., as the liaison to Naval Air Systems Command, PMA-205 (Naval Aviation Training Systems). Following this tour, Hammond served on the staff of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research Development and Acquisition as the director for counter improvised explosive devices and rapid acquisition programs in the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Expeditionary Warfare). Hammond served as the executive officer and commanding officer of Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC), Naval Air Station North Island, Calif.

70 years: How U.S. Naval Test Pilot School began By Donna Cipolloni NAS Patuxent River PAO

Seventy years have passed since the first version of today’s United States Naval Test Pilot School (USNTPS) opened its doors for business. It all started in 1943 when the Flight Test Group, located at NAS Anacostia, transferred to the newly established NAS Patuxent River in Maryland. The Test Pilot School evolved from an urgent necessity recognized early on by Cmdr. Charles Thomas “Tom” Booth, who got the ball rolling in 1944 after Cmdr. Sydney S. Sherby first reported to Pax River to fill a new billet – chief project engineer. Booth, flight test officer at the Naval Air Test Center, tasked Sherby with the job of getting to know the people and becoming familiar with how they were going about testing, at that point. Early in January 1945, after months of studying the issue and numerous visits to

Langley Field Laboratory, it was determined that if Flight Test was to continue to perform its mission effectively and keep pace with progress in aeronautics, the establishment of some formal program of education for test pilots and engineers would be essential. Cmdr. C.E. Giese, who by then had relieved Booth as flight test officer, agreed. On Feb. 21, Giese appointed Sherby to head a committee of three officers and report back to him in seven days with recommendations. As a result of the extensive work Sherby had been doing, his proposal for an indoctrination course for Navy flight test pilots was ready for review by March 1.

domain access. This plan highlights how investments will support Navy missions through the lens of the three tenets: “Warfighting First,” “Operate Forward” and “Be Ready.” Greenert emphasizes in the document that everything Sailors and civilians do must be grounded in the responsibility of warfighting first. He said the Navy must have the capability and capacity to conduct war at sea and win decisively. He provided a list of capabilities that center on this objective and followed with a

The plan described the outline of the program. The curriculum would cover the fundamentals of aerodynamics, procedures for aircraft performance testing, evaluation of aircraft stability and control characteristics, miscellaneous test and trials, actual in-flight performance testing and flight test reporting in a standardized format. The first class, consisting of 14 pilots and engineers – later designated as class 0a – began March 12, 1945, and graduated on May 30. Commander of the NATC, Capt. A.D. Storrs gave each student a diploma and a slide rule for their accomplishment. Class 0b convened in October later that same year, but the enrollment was diver-

Additionally, the navigation plan summarizes the six programmatic priorities that guided the Navy’s budget planning for the future of the fleet: maintaining a credible, modern and survivable sea-based strategic deterrent, sustain forward presence, distributed globally in places that count, develop the capability and capacity to win decisively, focus on critical afloat and ashore readiness to ensure the Navy is adequately funded and ready, enhance the Navy’s asymmetric capabilities in

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,

sified. It included students from other Naval Air Test Center activities. In March 1946, newly appointed commanding officer of the NATC, Capt. J.D. Barner wrote to the Chief of the Bureau of Aeronautics stating the need for a formal test pilot school, suggesting it be established as a division of NATC. The estimated cost for the school’s first year was $25,000. Then-Chief of Naval Operations, Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, agreed to the request and Capt. Frederick M. Trapnell, the man for which Pax River’s air field is named, began drafting a final blueprint for the school. Today, USNTPS provides instruction to Navy, Marine Corps, Army and Air Force aviators, international aviators/engineers, and civil service engineers. Accepting 36 students at a time and lasting approximately 48 weeks, two classes are offered per year, in February and August.

We couldn’t have been successful without (the Navy’s cooperation); we hope you enjoy the new buildings,” he said. The novel ribbon-cutting method had its roots in avition survival training. “For our legacy parachutes,” Higgins told the group, “it was taught to us you could cut up to four of the shroud lines in the back of the parachute, which would give the parachute a forward momentum, allowing you pull down on one of the risers and possibly steer into the wind, into a safe condition. “I chose to use parachute shroud cutters, because hopefully we’re going to steer the Aviation Survival Training Center into the future. You’ll execute the mission of providing safe, relevant and effective naval aviation survival training program curriculum to all prospective and current aviators for the future.”

DoD government service civilian employees are required to take annual Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) training, called SAPR-Civilian/SAPR-C. Government service civilian employees must take the first SAPR-C training live and in person, and thereafter take subsequent SAPR-C training on-line via TWMS. All new government service civilian employees hired this fiscal year (FY) must take SAPR-C live and hosted by a trainer prior to Sept. 30. Civilians who have had the training previously also may take the training live, however, the command has to document the training appropriately for the employee to receive credit. NAS Pensacola SARCs will provide SAPR-C training in the MIC room of the Richardson Bldg. Aug. 5 at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., and Aug. 26 at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. If you are a new government service civilian employee this FY, plan to attend. No pre-registration is required.

Blue Angels make impression on Pensacola native Attending NASP practice as VIP guest gives UWF student a new perspective By Bridgette Williams NASP PAO Intern

I grew up in Warrington watching the Blue Angels practice in the summer. One of my favorite childhood memories is watching the Blue Angels zoom over my back yard. Sometimes you could hear the planes and feel the vibration as they flew over the house. I would run outside to catch a glimpse of the blue and gold jets as they passed by. I recall how the roar of the jets’ engines would scare family members visiting from out-oftown who were not used to this spectacular event. It was a family tradition to watch the Blue Angels air show on Pensacola Beach when I was younger. My family and I would always arrive early to beat the traffic and find a good spot for pictures. This is now a tradition I have passed down to my children. Each year, we attend an air show or practice to watch the Blue Angels in action. My children love to see Fat Albert and the F/A-18 Hornets do the delta and diamond formations. This year we set out early to attend the July 10 Pensacola

Beach air show. The weather was extremely hot, but the crystal-clear water was perfect for cooling down as we awaited the Blue Angels’ arrival. The show began with Fat Albert and vintage planes carrying World War II veterans flying over the Gulf. A couple of hours later the Blue Angels appeared and my children ran to the shoreline to get a better view of the show. My oldest daughter and I captured photos and videos to share on Facebook. As the show came to an end my thoughts turned to the great opportunity coming the following week as part of my internship with the Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Public Affairs Office. I was scheduled to see the Blue Angels up close and personal. Growing up catching glimpses of practices and attending shows could not compare to attending a Blue Angels practice as a VIP guest. It was an assignment I took pleasure in covering July 14 aboard NASP. It was awesome to get a behind-the-scenes view of what goes into getting the jets ready for each pilot prior to take off.

formly as a team to make sure everything was in order. To actually get a chance to watch the pilots walk out on the tarmac, enter the jets, start the engines and take off down the runway was definitely unforgettable. I sat next to some people who were visiting from Tennessee that told me this was their first time seeing the Blue Angels. I said, “Well, this is def-

initely a great way to experience the show for the first time and I’m sure you will become a fan.” The VIP viewing area is not open to the general public. Access is on an invitation-only basis, so I was very fortunate to get this opportunity. Afterward, the pilots greeted everyone and called up a select few, including myself, to take photos with the pilots in front of the plane flown by Blue Angels Flight Leader and Commanding Officer Capt. Tom Frosch. I also got a chance to have a photo taken with Marine Capt. Katie Higgins, the first female pilot to join the Blue Angels. According to the Blue Angels website, the Blue Angels team members represent the top performers from the Navy and Marine Corps. Each member is handpicked from the fleet. During two- and three-

year rotations, this select group travels across the country to perform for millions of spectators. The names of the newly selected 2016 team members have recently been announced. The strategic process definitely shows in the way they work together as a team pulling off some of the most complicated maneuvers I’ve ever witnessed. Watching the Blue Angels always brings back childhood memories for me, however getting the opportunity to meet the pilots and attend a practice as a VIP guest can never be outdone. Since 1946, the mission of the United States Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, better known as the Blue Angels, has been to showcase the pride and professionalism of the Navy and Marine Corps by inspiring a culture of excellence and service to country through flight demonstrations and community outreach. In 2016 the Blue Angels will celebrate their 70th anniversary, and I, along with many other local residents and fans, look forward to many more action-packed shows.

Identity theft is not going away

By Terrina Weatherspoon DMA

W

e’ve all heard the warnings about identity theft. We’ve been briefed on what to look for. Check your credit reports, check your bank account, and then check again. LNCM Erin Meadows was all too familiar with the precautions. Since so many health care and military processes and benefits required her social security number, she assumed that at some point her identity might be comprised, so she’s always been pretty diligent with it. She was well aware of information and assistance available to assist ID theft victims and felt she was prepared for anything. Only it wasn’t her identity she had to worry about, it was her husband’s. While attempting to file 2013 federal and state taxes, their submission was denied because of duplicative tax refund filing. “We were receiving an error message which indicated one of our forms was not accurate,” said Meadows. “After multiple associates verified the information from the referenced form was reported properly, H&R Block referred me to the IRS to inquire about the error message. Concerned, I immediately contacted the IRS and after multiple steps of verifying my identity and explaining the purpose of my call, the IRS advised me that the reason for the rejection was that someone had filed an individual return using my husband’s SSN alone.” The IRS never alerted Meadows or her husband about the breach, said Meadows. They didn’t notify anyone even though they were fairly certain his information had been compromised. However, after Meadows contacted them, she said they immediately began telling her what steps to take. “The IRS provided references to a lot

of the necessary precautions,” said Meadows. “I was provided a case number and was advised to immediately file a police report with my local authorities.” Meadows took steps on her own as well, immediately contacting her bank and all three credit bureaus to place security freezes. She notified the Social Security Administration and the state’s attorney general’s office. She also printed and became familiar with the IRS’ Identity Theft Taxpayer Guide. “The bank assisted us by placing an immediate freeze on any credit increase requests, without additional security checks and verifications, and they also placed additional security on any transactions above a mutually agreed upon amount,” said Meadows. “Now, we receive communications from our bank regarding transactions which are out of the ordinary and especially those which are conducted out of our home state. When we travel, we now contact our bank to advise them of our travels so they can be aware of potential foreign transactions which are appropriate. Our bank and creditors have been very helpful and most accommodating through this entire process.” And as far as taxes, that is going to continue to be a bit of a hassle for the next few years. Meadows was also informed that in addition to her husband being required to submit a complete IRS ID Theft Affidavit with their hard copy tax filings and additional copies of photo

identifications, they would also not be allowed to file their taxes electronically for at least three years. Although Meadows and her husband did receive their federal tax refund, as far as they know, the thief has not been caught. They don’t have any details on how they could have prevented this. “The most disappointing part of all of this is that the IRS suspected something

Preventing ID theft: five things to know From Defense Media Activity

In this digitally connected world it’s more important than ever to know how to protect yourself from online identity theft that can lead to someone using your Social Security number or other personal information to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund. Here are five things you can do to protect yourself: 1. Check your account information. Monitor it regularly and report immediately any suspicious or unusual activity to your bank or financial institution.

2. Keep an eye on your credit report. Request a free credit report at www.AnnualCreditReport.com or by calling (877) 322-8228. Consumers are entitled by law to one free credit report per year from each of the three major credit bureaus – EquifaxR, ExperianR and TransUnionR – for a total of three reports every year. Contact information for the credit bureaus can be found on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) website, www.ftc.gov. 3. Verify who is asking for your information. Be suspicious of unsolicited

phone calls, visits, or e-mail messages from individuals asking about you, your employees, your colleagues or any other internal information. If an unknown individual claims to be from a legitimate organization, try to verify his or her identity directly with the company. 4. Stay vigilant online. Do not reveal personal or financial information in email, and do not respond to e-mail solicitations for this information. This includes following links sent in e-mail. Pay attention to the URL of a website. Malicious websites may look

identical to a legitimate site, but the URL may use a variation in spelling or a different domain (e.g., .com vs. .net). 5. Keep your documents in a safe place. At home and when you are traveling it’s important to only take what you need. Lock your wallet or purse in a safe place at work and limit what you carry with you. When you go out, take only the identification, credit and debit cards you need. Further resources can be found at www. consumer. gov /id theft and www. identity theft. gov.

since the fraudulent return had been flagged and they did not notify us. Subsequent attempts to find out what happened or who filed the fraudulent return have been helpless since the IRS won’t tell us anything. We both feel as though the IRS doesn’t care and won’t help even when they have information suspecting someone of wrong doing. Their process must be changed. They had to have information such as where the fraudulent return was requesting a check be sent to or where they wanted their return sent electronically. We know they are withholding vital information from us which could potentially help us understand how this happened and prevent future incidents.” Meadows now preaches diligence to everyone who will listen. “Use fraud alerts, watch your credit, monitor your bank accounts – especially if using online banking, build a close relationship with your banking institution and purchase identity theft protection, if possible,” said Meadows. “Our society relies upon SSNs far too much. Be aware of your finances and don’t trust anyone.” For more information on how you can protect yourself against identity fraud visit: http://www. consumer. ftc. gov/features/feature-0014-identitytheft.

Aviation training center prepares for accreditation team By Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Public Affairs

T

he Council on Occupational Education (COE) will conduct the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training’s (CNATT) Reaffirmation of Accreditation in August. The center announced July 14 that Sailors and Marines can ask questions or comment about their training as part of the process. The team from COE will conduct their reaffirmation Aug. 10-12 at the Pensacola command. COE is a non-profit voluntary membership organization serving postsecondary education and training institutions, centers and similar entities interested in the improvement of the workforce. The process will cover training throughout the CNATT domain, which trains more than 115,000 students annually at 27 subordinate learning sites located

throughout the Continental United States, Hawaii and Japan. “Accreditation is a status granted to a learning institution or program that meets or exceeds the criteria and standards of learning established by COE,” said Randall Getchell, CNATT’s COE accreditation liaison officer (ALO). “Accreditation has two fundamental purposes, to assure the quality of CNATT, and to assist in the improvement of CNATT and its

programs. It’s important that CNATT maintain its accreditation as a status of its continual improvement process to provide the best training and education to its students.” COE requires all organizations to conduct a self-evaluation or self-study before the team visit. There are 10 standards organizations must meet in order to be accredited through COE, and the self-study allows the organization time to meet those standards and prepare documen-

tation to support their achievement those standards. “Among other areas, we look at our mission and outcomes, as well as the learning resources, physical and technical infrastructure, and even our services and activities provided for students – our Sailors and Marines,” explained Getchell. “The process of identifying needed improvements and designating them for immediate, short-term, or longer-term implementation is one benefit of the self-study process.” The visiting COE team will rely on CNATT’s Self-Study Report, other available documentation, personnel interviews and observations of conditions and practices to determine if CNATT is in compliance with

the standards and criteria required for accreditation. “As part of the self-study, we invite past, present, and potential students, as well as fleet personnel to contact us with any questions or comments a b o u t C N AT T ’ s COE Accreditation,” said Getchell. They can reach me via e-mail at randall. getchell @navy.mil, or 452-8196 DSN: 459-8196.” For additional information about COE visit http://www. council.org.

Capt. Timothy McGuire retires after more than 34 years of military service Story, photo by Sheri Grabus NASWF Public Affairs

Capt. Timothy “TMac� McGuire retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in a ceremony held at the National Naval Aviation Museum July 16. Approximately 400 people attended the ceremony to honor McGuire’s more than 34 years of military service. During McGuire’s retirement speech, he spoke of his gratitude toward friends, family, and colleagues who supported him throughout his career. “Always faithful, always ready – and that’s what you’ve shown me,� said McGuire. “That support I’ve received from you – essentially from day one of military service – has never wavered. The track record of my whole career is based on your guidance to me.� McGuire also spoke

about remembering those fallen troops he served alongside with during his career. “We remember our fallen. I remember today those I served with who are here in spirit,� said McGuire. McGuire’s most recent positions included Coast Guard liaison officer to naval flight training, a position he held since 2012, and deputy to the director of Health, Safety, and Work Life at the U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, McGuire served as commanding officer and executive officer of Training Squadron Two (VT-2), where he flew the T-34. While CO of VT-2, McGuire received the Chief of Naval Operation’s Safety Award and was the Training Air Wing Five nominee for the Training Excellence Award from the Chief of Naval Air Training (CNA-

TRA). The CNATRA Training Excellence Awards recognizes squadrons that have exemplified excellence in training through efficiency and unique achievements. Guest speaker at the retirement event was McGuire’s brother, retired Marine Col. John McGuire. Col. McGuire spoke about growing up with his brother, taking advantage of the time-honored tradition of good-natured, brotherly ribbing to share stories of McGuire’s journey. He described McGuire’s dedication to military life from an early age – showing images of a toddler-aged McGuire in a “Cracker Jack� Sailor’s outfit. McGuire was first commissioned as a second lieutenant through the U.S. Marine Corps, receiving his wings of gold in June 1983. He transitioned to the Coast Guard in April

1990. This has enabled him to amass more than 6,000 flight hours across six different aircraft and helicopters. He was designated an instructor pilot in five of these airframes. His awards include two Meritorious Service Medals, two Commendation Medals, an Achieve-

ment Medal and numerous operational and unit awards. He earned a master’s degree from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and a bachelor’s of science degree in business management from Seton Hall University. “His presence in uniform will be missed,� said

Capt. Mark Murray, deputy commodore of Training Air Wing Five onboard NAS Whiting Field. “The impact he’s had on Coast Guard and naval aviation has been incredibly powerful and beyond measure, and will have a lasting impact for years to come.�

Runners wear a host of colors for MWR Fun Run Story, photo by Jay Cope NASWF Public Affairs

A hot summer day in the middle of July in Northwest Florida can be a torturous affair, so NAS Whiting Field’s (NASWF) MWR added a little color to their monthly fun run to ensure an entertaining event. It worked. More than 100 runners participated in the 5K run winding along the paths around the perimeter of the golf course. Every runner had the opportunity to pelt their competitors with flashes of colors, and volunteers lofted handfuls of red, blue and green dust at the runners at two stations along the route. Smiles merged with multicolored sweat on most of the runners as they crossed the finish

line as the fun run lived up to its moniker. “It was a nice course to run as they threw (color) at you,� Dexter Jackson, an employee with Dynecorp said. “Everyone had fun and a good laugh. I ran across someone I knew at the turn around, and when they threw the (dust) at me I laughed and said ‘Is that all you got?’ � As one would expect, his Tshirt was not one of the cleaner ones at the finish line. Jackson emphasized that the event was one he hopes they run again. Given the success of the event, another run would make sense. The run more than doubled the normal attendance at MWR’s fun runs. “This is the best attended fitness event MWR has hosted since I have been here,� stated Joe Vukovcan, NASWF MWR

director. He has been the MWR director since 2009. The run was the brainchild of Amy Fulmer, 17, one of the base’s teen summer hires. Each one of the hires is expected to

work on a project for their area as part of the Teen Hire program. Hires have to come up with an idea and coordinate it themselves – from food to volunteers. “I wanted to do a run because

I love running. I knew there had been fun runs in the past, but I wanted to spice it up a little,� said Fulmer. “I had never done a color run before, and I thought others might not have either.� Fulmer’s idea set a high standard for the others to follow. The dust was dyed cornstarch which was ordered from a company that supports such runs. The cornstarch is used because it cleans easily and is not harmful to the participants or the environment. The first finisher at 19 minutes and 40 seconds was Staff Sgt. Fred Griffith with MATSG 23. Although he only won bragging rights, in addition to the Tshirt, like all the other participants in the run, he also received a Navy Fitness bag with a pen, key chain, an MWR towel and a salad shaker.

Summer stargazing

See the International Space Station from your backyard

With New Horizons recent flyby of Pluto, imaginations and eyes are on summer’s skies From http://www.nasa.gov

By Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

NASA’s New Horizons mission presented challenges like no other, but its goal also was unprecedented: the farthest reaches of the solar system. It was an historic journey of more than 3.6 billion miles that began National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Florida spaceport. Plans called for New Horizons to send the first-ever, close-up images and scientific observations of distant Pluto, its system of large and small moons, and the Kuiper Belt. A region of the solar system beyond the planets, the Kuiper Belt consists mainly of small planetary bodies. To reach its primary target, the New Horizons spacecraft has traveled farther away and a longer time – more than nine years – than any previous space mission. The flight completed the initial reconnaissance of the classical solar system, expanding the frontiers of knowledge, capability and opportunity in space. The project was approved in June 2001 with the mission profile proposed and the spacecraft built by a team led by Alan Stern, New Horizons principal investigator and associate vice president for research and development at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in Boulder, Colo. Stern’s team included researchers from SwRI and the

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.

ASTEROID GRAVITY KNOWLEDGE LIGHT MOON

Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md. Early in the process, the team contacted representatives of NASA’s Launch Services Program (LSP) at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. “Soon after the mission was approved, we began discussions about what would be the best launch vehicle to provide the needed energy to send the space-

craft at unprecedented speeds and distances,” said Mike Stelzer, who was LSP’s mission manager for New Horizons. “We selected the Atlas V rocket to give us the needed boost for a 1,054-pound, piano-sized spacecraft at the speed necessary for a three-billion-mile trip.” The chosen version of the Lockheed Martin Atlas V used five strap-on solid rocket boosters, more than any previous

launch. Added to that was a powerful Centaur upper stage. Launched from Cape Canaveral on Jan. 19, 2006, New Horizons received a gravity assist from Jupiter during its closest approach in 2007. That increased the probe’s speed by 9,000 mph, successfully shortening its voyage to Pluto. New Horizons’ closest approach was July 14, later passing Pluto’s largest moon, Charon.

Local stargazes from EAAA; astronomy links and highlights From EAAA

For August 2015, the last quarter moon is Aug. 7. The new moon is Aug. 14, and will not interfer with the peak of the Perseid meteor shower on the mornings of Aug.1213 this year. From a dark observing site, you can expect about a meteor a minute from 11 p.m. until dawn, with the radiant (point), Perseus, rising in the northeast about 11 p.m. The waxing crescent moon passes 2 degrees south of Mercury in twilight Aug. 16. The moon is first quarter Aug. 22 and passes 2.6 degrees north of Saturn, the only planet out in the evening sky now. The full moon, the Green Corn moon, occurs on Aug. 29. While the naked eye, dark adapted by several minutes away from any bright lights, is a wonderful instrument, binoculars are better for spotting specific deep sky objects.

NETC chief of staff retires following 37-year career By Lt. j.g. Andrew DeGarmo NETC PAO

T

he chief of staff for the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) was honored at a retirement ceremony July 1 at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. Capt. John Jones was honored for his 37 years of naval service, which began shortly after he emigrated from the United Kingdom in 1977. Starting as a yeoman, he worked his way through the ranks, becoming a citizen in 1986 and was commissioned as a limited duty officer (LDO) in 1988. His duty stations took him around the world, ranging from Recruit Training Command Orlando to the staff of the Commander in Chief, U.S. Naval Forces Europe in London, England. Other assignments included duty aboard the battleship USS New Jersey (BB 62), where he qualified as a surface warfare officer; and the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71). He was also community manager for the LDO/CWO community at the Naval Personnel Command. During the retirement cere-

mony, Rear Adm. Michael White, NETC commander, spoke of Jones’ successful career. “I believe we all know that his incredible career was earned through compassion, hard work and true caring for his people,” said White. “Thank you for your wise counsel and note-

worthy example. I am honored to call you shipmate and friend. I wish you fair winds and following seas, and hope our paths cross many times over.” Retired Rear Adm. Donald Quinn, former NETC commander, also spoke, detailing Jones’ service and accomplishments. “The Navy has no limits for those who set none on themselves,” said Quinn. “John is a team player and his insatiable appetite for wanting to grow makes him a perfect example to

follow. Having come to the United States, enlisted in the Navy, and led a successful career, he was able to reach the rank of captain.” Jones then took the podium and thanked everyone for their attendance. He gave special thanks to his wife, daughters and father for their continued support over the years. “It’s not about me; it’s about the people who made it worth living,” said Jones. “I was blessed to have worked with extraordinary personnel

throughout my career; the junior Sailors, like the ones here today, the mustangs, and all the leadership have had a profound impact on, not only my career, but my life.” During the ceremony, White awarded Jones the Legion of Merit medal, honoring Jones’ meritorious service and successful career. Jones and his family plan to remain in the Pensacola area. For more information on NETC, visit https://www. netc. navy.mil/.

5K run in memory of slain Sailor scheduled for Oct. 3 Story from Pen Air Federal Credit Union

The Corry Station Chief Petty Officers Association (CPOA) and Pen Air Federal Credit Union are partnering to present the fifth annual Crime Stoppers 5K Run in memory of SN Tyler Jefferson. The race is scheduled for 8 a.m. Oct. 3 at NASP Corry Station. Jefferson, an 18-year-old information systems technician “A” school student, was shot and killed while jogging through a residential neighborhood near the gates of Corry Station Nov. 12, 2009. The investigation is ongoing due to a composite sketch of

one of the assailants. The annual run was conceived in response to her death in hopes of finding the person(s) responsible and assisting with other needless crimes in the local community against both military and civilians. Previous races have helped raise Crime Stoppers reward money for the Jefferson case. All proceeds from the 2015 run will be donated to Gulf Coast Crime Stoppers. “We’re proud to be in a community that supports its military. We know we’ll see many runners this year,” said Kip Herrington, chair of the fifth annual Corry Station CPOA Crime Stoppers 5K Run.

COMMAND LINES

SAPR 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.
