NASP’s NEX Aviation Plaza winner of 2013 Bingham Award Story, photo by Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

NAS Pensacola’s Navy Exchange (NEX) at Aviation Plaza has been named among the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) Bingham Award winners for 2013. NEX Aviation Plaza took the Bingham Award in the “Sales $36-85 million” (No. 2) category. Runner-up in the category was Naval Air Station North Island, Calif. The Bingham Award is presented annually to the best Navy Exchanges for customer service and overall financial results in nine sales categories. “Winners of the Bingham Award exemplify the true spirit, dedication and professionalism of all our associates and management teams,” said retired Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi, chief executive officer, NEXCOM, in a Navy release announcing the winners. “The Bingham Award recognizes our

stores for work they do throughout the year in support of our customers. By design, this award is presented to both the NEX and the local Navy command to recognize their partnership and dedication in supporting the quality of life of our military members and their families.” NEXCOM established the Bingham Award program in 1979 to recognize excellence in customer service, operations and management at NEX activities. The award is named after the late Capt. W.H. Bingham, Supply Corps, U. S. Navy Reserve. Bingham was the chief executive officer of the R.H. Macy’s company and was appointed by the Secretary of the Navy in 1946 to lead an advisory board for establishment of what is now NEXCom. Onboard NAS Pensacola, the NEX held an award presentation ceremony at Mustin Beach Club Aug. 5. Navy Capt. James E. Watts, deputy commander

NHP PrevMed continues ‘skeeter surveillance’ on bases By Lt. Cmdr. Mary Graves NHP Preventive Medicine Department

Mosquito-borne diseases are back in the news. Last week an individual in Pensacola was diagnosed with chikungunya and dengue fever, and both diseases are transmitted by mosquitoes. The

individual became infected while traveling in the Caribbean and then diagnosed after returning home. Luckily, Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP) Preventive Medicine Department has a mosquito surveillance plan in action to identify and control the number of disease-transmitting

mosquitoes on area bases. Survey sites are set up from late spring through the first frost, usually around November. These traps are placed in various locations aboard NAS Pensacola, NASP Corry Station, Saufley Field, MWR recreational sites, Naval Hospital Pensacola and family housing at Corry Vil-

lage/Mariner Village. Traps are collected twice a week. If more than 25 female mosquitos are present at a survey site, action is taken to reduce the population. Mosquito control is conducted by a contract pest management company and consists of aerosolized and ground applied pesticide dispersed in a one-mile radius around the trap site. The NHP Preventive Medicine Department urges personal protective measures be initiated whenever personnel are at risk for exposure. The prime hours for mosquito activity are at dusk and dawn. The use of clothing covering most of your skin and an EPA-approved repellent containing DEET are recommended. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) suggests DEET levels from 20 percent to 50 percent for adults and no greater than 30 percent for children older than two months. Picaridin, oil of lemon

Blue Angels dream takes flight for Naval War College professor By Lindsay Church U.S. Naval War College PAO

NEWPORT, R.I. (NNS) – On May 27, 1992, Ens. Robert Flynn stood on the field of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md., prepared to graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy. The Blue Angels six jet formation that flew overhead of the newly commissioned officers with a thunderous roar brought the stadium to their feet. As he stood and watched in awe, the Navy’s finest executed maneuvers with precision and accuracy. He thought to himself, “Today I become an U.S. Navy officer and those blue jets are my representatives. I could not be more proud.” “I’ve had a lot of dreams along the way, some that I got and some that I didn’t,” said Cmdr. Flynn, a U.S. Naval War College (NWC) professor and inaugural executive officer of the Blue Angels 2015 team. “Every once in a while though, one circles back that you didn’t think you were going to get.” As a junior officer, Flynn tried out for the Blue Angels events coordinator position twice, first in 2000, then again in 2002. Despite getting to the final stage of the interview process, he didn’t make the team either time. Reflecting on his experience, “it was a disappointment, but I didn’t consider it a negative. I made lifelong friends and best of all; I met my future wife who was

the aviation supply officer on the 2000 team. If I hadn’t applied, we might not have met.”

Cmdr. Bob Flynn

After his second attempt at making the team, war in Iraq and Afghanistan surged and his dreams of becoming a Blue Angel had drifted off and were replaced by new ones. “In 2002, I went to NWC to study for a year and did a fellowship with the Chief of Naval Operations Strategic Studies Group,” said Flynn. “I loved my experience at the NWC, so I kept it in the back of my mind that one day I’d like to go back to teach.” Following his fellowship, Flynn served as an aviation department head for Sea Control Squadron 22 (VS-22) “Checkmates” in Jacksonville, Fla., maritime operations center and air doctrine coordinator at Navy Warfare Development Command (NWDC) in Norfolk, Va., and officer in charge at Joint Counter-Radio Controlled Im-

seems as though this story has been in the works for years. Three years ago, in an effort to help his children learn to read, Flynn penned a children’s book titled “The Lucky Blue Angel.” The story is about a little jet that wants to be a Blue Angel but doesn’t think he can make it. In the process of writing the book, he essentially wrote the story of his own future. “I wrote the book because my kids were at an age where they were discovering reading. Their mom had been on the team, so I looked around for a children’s book about the Blue Angels, but I didn’t find any in print. So I resorted to telling them stories that I made up instead. One of those stories became a book.” “The book was intended to be about having a good attitude in the face of failure. The happy ending, when Lucky McGuire makes the team, sure wasn’t autobiographical – it was just a fun, happy ending that didn’t mirror my own experiences – until now,” Flynn said with a smile. “You just can’t make this stuff up.” “It’s a big responsibility to wear that uniform and represent the Blue Angels and the dedicated men and women of the fleet. When I become a team member this November, I’ll do my best to earn it. This job as the Blue Angel’s executive officer is a dream-come-true for me.” For more news from Naval War College, visit www. navy. mil/ local/ nwc/.

The elimination of breeding sites in and around your home is imperative in mosquito abatement. Any object that can collect water can be a potential breeding site. The following steps are recommended to eliminate harborages around the home: • Empty eaves, troughs, gutters to facilitate the drainage of water; • Drill holes for drainage in tires used on playgrounds; • Empty pots and containers, and remove cups/tires and debris from your yard; • Check tarps and vehicle/boat covers for pooled

dream that I gave up on 12 years ago after not being selected for a second time. There just weren’t any more chances; I had to get on with my career. That’s why all of this has been so hard to believe,” said Flynn. As it turned out, Flynn would not be passed over a third time and was selected as the executive officer for 2015 Blue Angels team. The creation of the position Flynn is slated to fill comes after an organizational restructuring that aligned the Blue Angels with the Navy’s standard leadership triad that consists of a commanding officer, executive officer and a command master chief. Since 1946, the Blue Angels have operated with only a commanding officer and command master chief. This has traditionally left the commanding officer with the responsibility of leading the team both in the air and on the ground. “As representatives of the Navy and the Marine Corps, the Blue Angels are always striving for excellence and ways to improve. This restructuring is no exception,” said Flynn. “It’s all about what you can do for the team. I’ll do my best to make the new executive officer position a positive and worthwhile step for the team.” While becoming the executive officer and a member of the Blue Angels may have seemed impossible at one point in Flynn’s career, in his personal life, it

provised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare (CREW) Composite Squadron 1 in Basra, Iraq. While deployed to Iraq, Flynn’s notion of going back to NWC to teach became a reality. “For me, it was a dream come true to go back to the NWC and teach. I’ve taught with so many talented civilians and learned a great deal from my military colleagues and the students as well.” Flynn liked it so much that he agreed to do a second tour teaching strategy and policy. “I planned on teaching as long as they would have me. I love it that much,” said Flynn. “That was the way that I was going to leave the Navy and I was happy with it. For me, my career has always been about doing the best you can where you land and I’ve been lucky to land in great places.” With 22 years of service under his belt and a transition to the next chapter in his life imminent, a simple phone call would change Flynn’s course and transform another dream into reality. “Six weeks ago, I got a call from a member of the Blue Angels. He asked me if I would consider throwing my hat in the ring to fill the newly created executive officer position,” Flynn said. Instantly, his dream of becoming a part of the team was resuscitated. Flynn added his name to the list of candidates, despite his previous failed attempts to make the team. “Being on the team was a

Identity theft: Take steps to avoid becoming a victim By Lt. Jennifer M. Smith Region Legal Service Office

I

dentity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America. Last year, 10 million people were victims.

And it’s not just the financial loss, but the impact on your credit. It includes your borrowing and repayment plans, credit cards and loans, whether you have been delinquent on payments, or you have filed for a bankruptcy. Here is one way it can happen. The identify thief steals your information and opens one or more accounts. In the mail you begin receiving past due notices for accounts in your name. Erroneous postings end up on your credit report. The negative entries lower your credit score. They lead to denials of future loan requests. Employers and landlords look at credit reports when deciding whether to hire you or if you qualify for a lease. The effort to clean up the mess left by identity thieves is hours of your time and months to get your good name back. Active-duty military are prime targets for identity theft: Lots of moves; extended absences for training or deployments; and working in remote locations unable to monitor bank and credit accounts. The consequences for active-duty service members can be severe. Poor credit reports can result in the loss of a

security clearance and impact future service or your career. While there is no 100 percent guarantee against identity theft, there are steps you can take to make it more difficult for your identity to be stolen and to limit the impacts should identity theft happen. Here are some helpful tips: Regularly monitor bank and credit accounts: Check accounts twice a month for incorrect entries. Safeguard your personal information by: • Shredding documents that contain personal information; e.g., receipts, bank statements, and medical documents. • Having a friend pick up your mail when you away or request a hold at the post office. • Considering opting out of prescreened offers of credit and insurance by going to optoutprescreen.com. • Limiting identification you carry such as your Social Security card. • Avoiding logging into personal accounts on a public wireless network. • Regularly change passwords. • Not posting personal information such as your full birthday on public

websites. Check your credit report three times a year: You can access your credit report annually for free from the three credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian and Transunion; or you can go to www.annualcreditreport.com. Space your requests to each of the agencies throughout the year to regularly monitor your credit for any suspicious entries. Early identification of identity theft is your best defense. Set up a credit alert: These alerts require businesses to contact you to verify your identity before issuing credit in your name. You only need to request an alert with one of the credit reporting agencies and they will report it to the others. If you become the victim of identity theft, an initial alert for

90 days can ensure that no further credit is taken in your name. If deploying, consider the active duty alert which last for 12 months and removes you from prescreened offers for credit and insurance. While you can’t always avoid identity theft, you should take steps to limit the possibility. For more information and advice, go to http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/topics/privacy-identity. And of course, if you become the victim of identity theft, contact your local RLSO Legal Assistance office. The NAS Pensacola Region Legal Service Office (RLSO) Southeast, Detatchment Pensacola, is at 121 Cuddahy St., Bldg. 680, Suite B, or call 452-3733 or 452-3734.

CNO: Chaplains and RPs integral to fleet readiness By CNO Public Affairs

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert joined nearly 100 senior chaplains and religious program specialists (RPs) gathered for the Chaplain Corps 2014 Strategic Leadership Symposium at the Washington Navy Yard July 31. CNO, along with Assistant Secretary of the Navy (M&RA) Juan Garcia and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy were among several keynote speakers scheduled for this year's symposium. “I have a deep respect for what you all do,” said Greenert. “What you bring in spiritual readiness is real and desperately needed.” Greenert first provided an update on what the Navy is doing around the world. He highlighted the maritime crossroads and the Navy’s current mandate of presence and seapower. The Navy’s focus is on being forward deployed to be where it matters when it matters, Greenert said, adding that Sailors are what make our mission possible.

“After 13 years of combat deployments for our people, we can now take the time to build their resiliency,” said Greenert. “The Chaplain Corps plays an important role in the professional, physical and spiritual readiness of our force. “Many of the detracting issues the Navy faces are problems both chaplains and RPs face daily, to include Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR), suicide and operational stress control. Chaplains and RPs are one strong tool commanding officers possess to promote positive and healthy behaviors among their crews. “I depend on you to advise commanders on command climate,” said

Greenert. “It’s one of those entities that remain hard to define but if you don’t get it right you’ll have big problems.” In addition to the traditional functions of the Chaplain Corps within the Navy assisting with readiness, they have stepped up to assist in more recent challenges. Greenert cited their immediate actions in the wake of the Navy Yard shooting last September, where 30 religious ministry teams came to the aid of those affected by the tragedy. The Chaplain Corps were also thoughtful and organized during the rollout of the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” repeal. No matter the challenge, chaplains and spirituality are, “what we need

Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert speaks at the Chaplain Corps 2014 Strategic Leadership Symposium at the Washington Navy Yard’s Admiral Gooding Center about the Navy mandate, personnel readiness and the theme of this year’s symposium, “Strategic Context for Religious Ministry in the Naval Service.” Greenert thanked the chaplains and religious program specialists in attendance for their unique and important role supporting the spiritual side, what Greenert defined as the triad of readiness; professional, physical and spiritual readiness of fleet Sailors, which enables them to endure in challenging times.

to get us through, something to hold onto when things are hard, someone they can turn to with confidence with no agenda,” said Greenert. “Thank you all for answering the call to serve,”

said Greenert. “The Navy has valued the Chaplain Corps contributions since 1775, and will continue to do so.” Greenert was scheduled to attend the Chief of Chaplain’s change of

SecNav visits USS Independence From Secretary of the Navy Public Affairs

PACIFIC OCEAN (NNS) – Secretary of the Navy (SecNav) Ray Mabus visited Sailors aboard USS Independence (LCS 2) July 24 as the ship participated in the 2014 Rim of the Pacific (RimPac) exercise off the coast of Hawaii. During RimPac, the largest international maritime exercise in the world, Independence, the second littoral combat ship to be commissioned, has been conducting exercises including gunfire exercises, tactical maneuvering, search and seizure boarding, and multi-ship air defense, anti-submarine and surface warfare exercises. “They can accomplish an amazing variety of missions,” said Mabus. “They’ve done everything from acting as a staging base for special forces to participating in humanitarian assistance/disaster relief exercises.” Prior to RimPac, Independence was conducting testing and evaluation of the

ship’s mine countermeasures (MCM) mission module of the coast of San Diego. For its participation in RimPac, the ship shifted to its surface warfare

(SUW) mission module, a change that exhibited one of the primary strengths of LCS. “LCS gives you two things we don’t have in the fleet,” said Mabus, “modu-

larity and very high speed. Independence is a great example of that.” “They were told they were coming to RimPac and they put on the surface warfare module and came out here. They did not need to be refueled at sea and got here (to Hawaii from San Diego) with 30 percent of their fuel still in the tank.” The SUW mission module includes two 30mm gun turrets and two 11meter rigid-hulled inflatable boats. During his time aboard LCS, Mabus had lunch with junior Sailors, observed a boarding exercise and met with Sailors in workspaces throughout the ship, coming away impressed with their skill and ability. “I think that now, and in the future, LCS will fit the needs of the Navy,” he said.

Students practice STEM skills as crime scene investigators Story, photo by Dan Broadstreet Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division Corporate Communications PAO

P

ANAMA CITY, Fla. (NNS) – Navy scientists and engineers partnered with Florida State University Panama City (FSU PC) STEM Institute July 14-25 to teach rising eighth-, ninth- and 10th-graders how to conduct simulated crime scene investigations (CSI) using science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills. The director of FSU PC STEM Institute, Ginger Littleton, said this summer’s science camp was designed to challenge students to investigate hypothetical crimescenes after having first participated in four basic CSI-related workshops: chemistry, robotics, electronics and computer programming. “So, for example, we have Navy physicist Dan Flisek from the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division presenting chemistry methods to students so they can figure out whether or not particular evidence samples are actual blood stains or not,” said Littleton. “And the programmers are learning HTML and other computer languages to build their own profiles.” Littleton said that the FSU PC STEM summer institute started nine years ago and is funded by the National Defense Education Program (NDEP). “NDEP helped us begin what grew to be an annual STEM summer science camp for our Bay District School students and gradually attracted students from neighboring districts such as Washington, Columbia and Hamilton counties. Our annual average of participating students grew to approximately 200 children,” said Littleton.

According to Littleton, due to the country’s economic challenges, NDEP had to cut this year’s funding. “Consequently, we had to begin charging a registration fee of $50 per student to augment what funding we did receive from NDEP this year to provide the same academic challenges,” Littleton said. “The result is we’ve had to reduce the number of students we could host. So this year we are serving about 120 students compared to the usual 200 participants. Previously we were reaching a wider range of students so the cutback has resulted in our losing some of the diversity we always seek.” Surfside Middle School math teacher Eddie Mills began teaching students the basics of electronics and then how to solder circuit boards before challenging them to use these skills like CSI professionals. “Our class scenario involves a jewelry store employee who participates in a burglary,” said Mills. “So, by having our students first build a basic alarm with their soldering iron and a circuit board kit, they will have to figure out not only how to build the alarm, but how to bypass it before they’ll be able to present a case against the suspect.” Rising eighth-graders Dakota Wonsey

and Winston Walsingham took on the challenge of building and programming a Lego Mindstorm® robot to act as an antitheft surveillance sentry. “Before attending this summer science camp, I had never built a robot and I never had any experience in programming either,” said Wonsey. “Learning by books alone and lectures is boring. Here, we actually get to do the things we read about.” Fellow robotics classmate Wesley Wilmot echoed Wonsey’s sentiments about how effective the STEM Institute teaching methods were. “I have gotten more science experience in this summer science camp than I have through all my years of taking traditional science courses in school. Like a lot of my team, this has all been com-

pletely new to me and I’ve had a lot of fun in the process,” said Wilmot. According to Waller Elementary STEM science teacher Carla Thedford, the hands-on method of teaching students STEM skills is so inspirational and effective that her school principal Peggy Bunch is incorporating it throughout Waller Elementary’s entire curriculum. “We’re really trying to take it to a broad-based plan where every classroom will be doing some type of STEM related activity through our lessons,” said Thedford. “This particular evolution in teaching is engaging more of our students’ interests in learning STEM skills, which is what our country needs.” For more news from Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division, visit www.navy.mil/local/NSWC/.

Clean Vessel Act grants to total $16.6 million for 2014 From U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

A

total of $16.6 million in grants will go to 21 states in fiscal year 2014 under the Clean Vessel Act (CVA) program, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced recently. Funds to be awarded to Florida include $1,410,651 for coastal projects and $770,126 for inland projects. Funds to be awarded to Alabama include $205,151 for coastal projects and $82,801 for inland projects. Since the first CVA

awards were made in 1993, the service has awarded more than $200 million to states to fund construction, replacement, renovation and maintenance of facilities that assist recreational boaters in properly disposing of on-board septic waste. The program

also provides information and education about the importance, benefits and availability of pump-outs. “Clean water is a fundamental need for both people and wildlife, and a perfect example of how the fates of both are intertwined,” said Service

Director Dan Ashe. “Clean Vessel Act grants not only help ensure that clean drinking water, sustainable ecosystems and healthy recreational areas are accessible to the American people, they also provide a substantial economic benefit for local communities.”

Funds for the CVA program are provided annually from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, which is maintained through the collection of fishing tackle manufacturer excise taxes and boat and fishing import duties, as well as motorboat and small engine fuel taxes. Funds are competitively disbursed to states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands for

up to 75 percent of project costs, with non-federal partners providing the remaining 25 percent. For more information on the grant awards go to http://wsfrprograms. fws.gov/Subpages/Grant P ro g r a m s / C VA / C VA 2014Funding.pdf. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service works with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
