NASP welcomes new U.S. citizens

Story, photo by Jason J. Bortz Public Affairs Officer Naval Air Station Pensacola

Almost 200 new United States citizens recited, “I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America ...” at a naturalization ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola Aug. 1. The atrium at the museum was converted into a courtroom for a ceremony that included four judges from the United States District Court, Northern District of Florida. The Honorable M. Casey Rodgers served as the presiding judge for the ceremony. “This is a momentous day, even life-changing for some of these citizens,” Rodgers, who has been presiding over naturalization ceremonies since 2003 said. “It’s also one of the most rewarding and enjoyable aspects of my

position as a judge.” For the participants, their dream of becoming a United States citizen was finally reached. Coming from 58 countries from all corners of the globe, the new U.S. citizens navigated the naturalization process and now share the common bond of being an American. “Your representation as an American citizen is not based on race or where you came from,” Judge Hope T. Cannon, whose family moved from Vietnam to the United States when she was a young child said. “We are all Americans.” According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), more than 7.4 million naturalized citizens were welcomed into the fabric of our nation during the last decade. In fiscal year 2016, 752,800 people were naturalized. In order to become a naturalized citizen, candidate must meet several requirements such as being

at least 18 years of age, being a lawful permanent resident of the U.S., has resided in the U.S. for at least five years and having a knowledge of U.S. government and history. After meeting all eligibility requirements they must also

pass an English test and a 10-question civics test and answer questions about their moral character. “The United States is the land of opportunity and I am proud to be an American now,” Ken Larson, who came from

Canada and has lived in the United States since 2000 said. “It was absolutely worth going through the process.” During the ceremony, each candidate stated their name See Citizens on page 2

NAVY COOL offers expanded credentialing opportunities From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

Sailors have an even wider array of opportunities to earn civilian certifications and licenses funded through Navy Credentialing Opportunities On-line (COOL) with a Navy policy update July 24. Navy COOL’s website at http://www.cool. navy.mil provides information about licenses and certifications applicable to all Navy occupations, offering resources and funding to help Sailors

gain appropriate civilian desired, and in many cases required, credentials. Here is what’s new: • Credentials Earned and Maintained Prior to Joining the Navy. If you are Navy enlisted (active or Reserve), you may now be eligible for funding for credentials that were earned, and maintained, prior to your enlistment in the Navy. The certification or license must have relevance to the needs of the Navy, and must appear on Navy COOL, although it does not need to show the “Navy Bucks”

icon to be funded. • Prior Other-Service Enlisted Occupation. If you are Navy enlisted (active or Reserve), you may now be eligible for funding for credentials related to prior other-Service (Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard) enlisted occupation. The certification or license must have relevance to the needs of the Navy, and must appear on Navy COOL, although it does not need to show the “Navy Bucks” icon to be funded.

Ready, set, back to school: Aug. 12 From Carissa Bergosh NASP School Liaison Officer

The long, hot days of summer fill children’s lives with the excitement of splashing in the pool, traveling to nearby and distant places or just spending lazy days around the house. With only a few days left, the summer holidays for students attending Escambia School will soon come to an end. Parents should be mindful to start now to help their children make the adjustment from a summer schedule back to school schedule. Here are just a few questions that parents might have about the 2019/20 school year: When does school begin for students in the public schools? Escambia: Monday, Aug. 12

What documentation will I need to register my child for school? If you are registering a child to attend a Florida public school for the first time, you will need the following: birth certificate, proof of residency, proof of custody (if not biological parent), copy of last school year’s report card, IEP and last School Withdrawal Form, and Health Screening and Immunizations form. These forms (for Florida) may be obtained and completed at the local public health departments, your physician’s office or at the Naval Hospital in Pensacola Where can I find information about bus schedules? Bus stops and pick up times can be found at your child’s zoned school and on the school district website

When it comes to riding the bus, safety is the priority. Bus riders are expected to arrive at bus stops no less than 10 minutes before the posted pick up time. For safety reasons, school busses are required to pick students up at a location that is at least 30 feet away from an intersection. Students should receive a Student Information sheet that will need to be completed and returned to the driver. The information will be maintained by the transportation department for use in emergency situations What if my child is walking or riding a bicycle to school? Safety remains the priority. Bike riders should wear a bicycle helmet, no matter how short the ride, ride on the right in the same direction as the automobile

traffic, use appropriate hand signals, respect traffic lights and stop signs, wear bright colors to increase visibility and know the “rules of the road.” If your child is walking to school make sure the route is safe. Be realistic about your child’s pedestrian skills. Small children are often impulsive, easily distracted and not ready to walk to school without adult supervision. Like the bike riders, all walking students should wear brightly colored clothes to make sure they are visible to drivers Are there certain types of backpacks needed? There are few suggestions when selecting backpacks: choose one with wide, padded shoulder straps, pack light (never carry more than 10 to 20 percent of the child’s body weight), always

use both shoulder straps and consider buying rolling backpacks, but check with individual school regarding their suggestions. This final recommendation may be especially helpful for students who walk long distances and do not ride the bus With a little bit of effort at home, parents can set the tone for a great year of learning. Parental involvement and enthusiasm by the parents may be all your child needs to have an outstanding year of academic success. If you have questions about local schools and what services are available, feel free to contact Carissa Bergosh, school liaison officer at NASP at 712-4105 or e-mail Carissa.Bergosh@navy. mil.

Citizens from page 1 and country of origin. The culmination of the ceremony was the candidates reciting the “Oath of Allegiance” in unison, which was the final step to becoming a U.S. citizen. The guest speaker for the ceremony was Capt. Tim Kinsella, commanding officer, NAS Pensacola. Kinsella was born in the United States, but grew up in Ireland. “My parents went through a naturalization ceremony just like this when they came to the United States from Ireland,” Kinsella, who left Ireland after high school to join the U.S. Navy said. “My dad would always tell me that America is the greatest country in the world and that in America I could be anything I wanted. You and your children are now the future of this country. Never forget where you came from, it is part of who you are and that diversity is where our strength lies as Americans.” NAS Pensacola, referred to as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation,” is designed to support operational and training missions of tenant commands including Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC); Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC); the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT); Marine Aviation Training Support Groups (MATSG) 21 and 23; and is the headquarters for Naval Education and Training Command (NETC). Navy COOL from page 1 opportunities within the Navy COOL program included: • Opportunities for Cross-Rated Sailors. If you have cross-rated, you now are eligible for certifications and licenses mapped to your prior rating. The “Navy Bucks” icon on the Navy COOL page for your previous position/rate indicates which certifications and licenses may be funded. • Opportunities for Navy Reservists. If you are a Navy Reservist, you may now be eligible for funding for credentials related to your civilian occupation. The certification or license must have relevance to the needs of the Navy and must appear on Navy COOL, although it does not need to show the “Navy Bucks” icon to be funded. • Opportunities Related to OffDuty or Command-Sponsored Training. If you can document that you have completed an on- or offduty training course that fully prepares you for a civilian certification or license, you may now be eligible to have it funded. For example, if you took a command-sponsored

Vol. 83, No. 31

emergency medical technician (EMT) course, you may be eligible for funding for an EMT Basic credential. • Opportunities Related to Academic Degrees. Out-of-rate requests for exam funding for credentials related to an earned academic degree may also be funded if it can be directly related to a national industry certification or federal license. For example, if you have a degree in human resources but are serving as a culinary specialist, you can get funding for a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification. As with any credential, Sailors must meet all other eligibility criteria and the certification or license vendors’ requirements. For more information about Navy COOL, visit http://www.cool.navy. mil. Sailors can live chat online or call 452-6683 to speak with an advisor during office hours, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Central Standard Time. Sailors can also e-mail navycool@navy.mil or use an online feedback form at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/contact/index.htm.

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

Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented.

Reading from page 1 children through the MWR Library Summer Reading Program are not only creating a positive example for these individuals who might someday be in our shoes, but are helping to create an interest in reading for our younger generation.” The mission of the Department of Defense-MWR Summer Reading Program is to help families bridge the “summer learning gap” while inspiring literacy and life-long learning. The six-week long program, themed “It’s Showtime at Your Library,” incorporated books based on movies, and was heavily reliant on the volunteer effort of service members from NAS Pensacola-area commands. Hannah Rapetti, the NAS Pensacola MWR librarian, said that volunteer efforts from Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC), Marine Aviation Training Support Group (MATSG) 23 and Aviation Maintenance Squadron 1 staff members were instrumental throughout the program, with more than 130 readers participating and earning an NAS Pensacola MWR Library record number of more than 96,000 minutes spent reading. Rapetti added that volunteers both read to and helped program participants read books as well as participated in other activities, including dressing as “Lego Batman” and “Lego Joker” and enacting a fight, interacting with program participants in the “Worm Jungle” during “Jungle Book” week and practicing their skills with “magic wands” during “Harry Potter” week. “We could not have pulled off this program without the support from our service members,” she said. “To have the service members show the children that reading can be fun and exciting was certainly something we at the library and the children will appreciate for a long time.” According to the Military OneSource website, students participating in library summer reading programs score higher on reading achievement tests, and students who read often are higher achievers than students who seldom read. “Reading during the summer time is instrumental to promoting an increase in confidence, comprehension and reading as a past time for younger generations,” Rapetti said. vilian personnel and their families aboard the Naval Air Station Pensacola, Saufley Field and Corry Station.

The Game of Life: Have life’s rules changed? By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

P

arking my yellow convertible on the square, I read the words aloud,

“ ‘Inherit shrunken head collection. Pay $10,000 for museum to accept it.’ Aw, man!” “Quit yer whining!” my older brother snickered with sick satisfaction. No matter what game we played, he always appointed himself the banker, setting an immediate tone of domination. He snapped the brightly colored bills out of my hand with a greedy sneer. Growing up in the 70s with only three television channels and one mindnumbingly monotonous Atari Tennis game, my brother and I relied heavily on board games for entertainment. We played Monopoly, Sorry!, Risk, Payday, Stratego, Rock’em Sock’em Robots, Battleship and other games expressly intended to reward the rich, ruthless, lucky and intellectually superior. There were no consolation prizes – if you lost, you suffered complete destitution

and utter humiliation, and we liked it that way. After all, if losing wasn’t so unbearable, why bother winning? Once I’d had my own kids, they would often whine, “We’re BORED!” I’d remind them of the bikes, scooters, and athletic equipment lying dormant in our garage, and they would sigh. I’d remind them of our four televisions with over 200 channels each, and they would sigh. I’d remind them of our stacks of neglected board games, and they would sigh. One summer, I baited them with unhealthy snacks into playing The Game of Life, which they had received for Christmas that year. A few minutes later, I heard their banter coming from the dining room. “ ‘Support Wildlife Fund.’ Ooo, I got $5,000.” “ ‘Cycle to work.’ Ha! I got $10,000!” “Wait a minute? What game

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers, including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat a nd p ot a t o e s of l i fe.c o m . are you guys playing?” I interrupted. There on our table lay The Game of Life with its characteristic segmented pathway, rainbow spinner, and white plastic buildings. However, upon closer inspection, I could see that this was not the game of my youth. “What’s this – ‘Countryside Acres?’ What happened to The Poor Farm? And are these minivans? You get money for

recycling now? What’s going on?!” Confused, I called my mother, who like me is unable to get rid of anything. Sure enough, she found The Game of Life my brother and I used to play in the basement of our 1950s brick ranch. She carefully opened the brittle old box and read to me from its faded game board. “Big day at the races. Collect $80,000.” “Pay $5,000 for toupee.” “Find Uranium deposit. Collect $100,000.” “Buy raccoon coat. Pay $500.” “Uncle in jail. Pay $500 bail.” “Buy Rolls Royce. Pay $16,000.” “REVENGE. Collect $100,000 from any player.” With each square, fond memories of summer days spent trying to crush my opponent flooded my mind. Back then, the rules of Life were clear – get a good job, be responsible, make as much money as possible. Sure, every player had to deal with hard knocks in Life like tornadoes, jury duty, poison ivy, and poor relatives. But if you got rich, there was no shame in rewarding yourself with yachts and trips to Monte Carlo. Simply put, wealth was necessary to win at The Game of Life.

But players in The New Game of Life get money for planting trees, having family picnics, returning lost wallets, joining health clubs and even making new friends. Nobody goes bald or inherits a skunk farm anymore. Gambling and revenge have been outlawed, and players have ample chances in Life to “Spin again if not in the lead.” The old game’s daunting “Day of Reckoning” has now been replaced with an anticlimactic choice between a government subsidized retirement community called “Countryside Acres,” and watered-down Millionaire Estates. No more Poor Farm or risk-taking Millionaire Tycoons. Everyone’s a winner. Frankly, I’m surprised the game doesn’t award trophies for every player. Gloomily, I said goodbye to my mother and hung up the phone. “What’s this world coming to?” I thought. Just then, I heard a commotion in the dining room, and rushed in to find my son holding his sister in a headlock as she squealed, “You’re just mad ’cause I beat you again! I’m richer than you are!” “Whew,” I thought, and was relieved to see that some things in Life will never change.

IWTC Monterey Sailors teach Middle East history at DLIFLC By Seaman Courtney Havrilla Information Warfare Training Command Monterey Public Affairs

M

ONTEREY, California (NNS) – Sailors at Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Monterey are taking charge of their learning at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) with the Middle East History Initiative. The program, driven by students of the Arabic language at the DLIFLC’s Middle East School II, consists of bi-monthly training briefs on topics related to the history, politics, culture and social issues of the Middle East. Students built the program in response to perceived gaps in the Area Studies curriculum. A motivated group of Sailors noticed that while topics were fairly covered, they lacked substantive depth. They were hungry for more information so they brainstormed ways to fill the gaps. With the help of fellow students from all services, military language instructors and experienced military linguists, the Middle East History Initiative took shape.

“There are many topics related to the culture and history of the Middle East and the Arabic language that we just don’t have time to explore in class,” Seaman Nicholas Perry, a student of Arabic at the DLIFLC and one of the program’s co-founders said. “This was an opportunity for me to explore a complex historical and cultural phenomenon and share it with my shipmates. I believe this can only enhance our understanding of the language.” The program has inspired and drawn the interest of other students. Those who are interested in participating must volunteer to research a topic, build the brief and present the lecture. The preparation takes considerable time and effort outside of class

hours. In an intensive 64-week Arabic course, that time is precious. “I am impressed that these junior Sailors have the time and motivation to juggle their studies and duties in addition to extracurricular p r o j e c t s like these le c t u r e s ,” Lt. Cmdr. Natalia Henriquez, a DLIFLC student and frequent par ticipant of the training said. “These students understand the necessity of cultural and historical understanding and have the drive to achieve success in their pursuit of mission readiness. I am proud to see motivated and talented Sailors excel in their studies.” Thus far, the program has produced six lectures, and audience sizes have grown from 17 to more than 40 students at a time. The program has become so popular that other instructors and faculty routinely attend the lectures as well. Military language instructors and other senior military members add operational relevance to the discussions by tapping into their own on-the-job experiences with the language. “Keeping students motivated and developing autonomous

learners are two of the biggest challenges we face,” Chief Cryptologic Technician (Interpretive) Ian Wyatt, chief military language instructor for the DLIFLC’s Middle East School III said. “This is a long course, so it is crucial that students are able to break out of their day-to-day routines and take ownership of their studies. The program these students have built exemplifies that.” The program emphasizes academic content, but participants gain the additional benefit of developing briefing skills. The ability to convey critical information in a concise and effective manner to a variety of audiences is invaluable for any military member. They get practice in public speaking, research and analysis, and presentation. These lectures provide an opportunity to build confidence while practicing among supportive peers in the audience, which is especially important for beginners who have yet to practice this critical skillset. The Middle East History Initiative will continue to be an opportunity for prospective linguists to build subject matter

expertise and military skills alongside their proficiency in foreign language. Upon graduation, these linguistwarriors are expected to depart the DLIFLC as culturally fluent language professionals prepared to cross cultural-barriers and interpret more than just words. These motivated IWTC Monterey students are doing their part to make sure they are ready. IWTC Monterey, as part of the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT), provides a continuum of foreign language training to Navy personnel, which prepares them to conduct information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations. With four schoolhouse commands, two detachments, and training sites throughout the United States and Japan, CIWT is recognized as Naval Education and Training Command’s top learning center for the past two years. Training more than 21,000 students every year, CIWT delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services. CIWT also offers more than 200 courses for cryptologic technicians, intelligence specialists, information systems technicians, electronics technicians and officers in the information warfare community.

U.S. Naval War College holds war game looking at cyber defense of private sector By Jeanette Steele U.S. Naval War College Public Affairs NEWPORT, Rhode Island (NNS) – When a cyberattack hits an American financial institution, or the energy grid of a major U.S. city, what role should the U.S. military be prepared to take? That was one of the central questions posed at a U.S. Naval War College war game last week. The Defend Forward: 2019 Critical Infrastructure War Game gathered more than 100 people from finance, energy, government and academia to participate in an unclassified two-day event July 25 and 26. It was the third in a series of cyber critical infrastructure war games held by the college’s Cyber and Innovation Policy Institute. “The Naval War College stands at the forefront of efforts to better understand the interconnectedness of the public-private partnership, especially in the increasingly contested realm of cyberspace,” Acting President Lewis Duncan told the group in his welcoming remarks.

U.S. Coast Guard Rear Adm. Pete Brown, deputy assistant to the president and homeland security and counterterrorism adviser at the National Security Council, told the players that they can play an important role in cyber defense. “Exercises like this one are critically important to understand the characterization of risk between the public and private sector, as well as the capabilities we each have to protect our assets and our nation,” Brown said in his opening remarks. The game’s title – Defend Forward – is a reference to the 2018 U.S. Cyber Command strategy that calls for “defending forward” against groups that have used hostile cyber tactics against the United States. “The brunt of cyber activity is occurring in the private sector,” Jacquelyn Schneider, assistant professor

in the college’s Strategic and Operational Research Department said in an interview about the game that she co-authored. “For anyone who uses virtual banking, the viability of the financial system is existential. At the same time, the energy infrastructure is something that touches every American. We know that in crises, our adversaries will be looking at the financial and energy sectors as the soft underbelly of the United States,” she continued. The scenario of the game was that a “red state” with powers equal to the United States conducted low-level cyberattacks for six months against U.S. financial and energy targets, using cyber tactics to gain strategic access, gather personal information about “blue” leaders and steal intellectual property from the financial sector. The game then imagined that the “red state” wanted to influence the political election of a “blue state” ally.

The game was held at an unclassified level to allow people from the private sector to attend, Schneider said. Representatives from major U.S. banks, financial corporations and energy companies were among the players. Participants were separated into rooms that represented the finance, energy, government sectors – with people designated as the chief executives, chief operating officers or chief information officers of fictional companies. These groups grappled with how to respond to the scenario of an invasive security breach: Do we take the bank offline? Do we pause mobile banking? Do we have a bitcoin account established to pay hackers? Do we have a response firm on retainer? Do we issue a press release? Findings from the event are expected to be released in a game report published on the college’s website, organizers said. The Cyber and Innovation Policy Institute is part of U.S. Naval War College’s Strategic and Operational Research Department, in the Center for Naval Warfare Studies.

ASTC JAX delivers new mask-off hypoxia training By Petty Officer 1st Class David Kolmel Navy Medicine Education, Training and Logistics Command

Aviation Survival Training Center (ASTC) Jacksonville (JAX) commenced training with a new, mask-off hypoxia trainer in July that will be used for all Navy and Marine Corps designated aviation personnel flying in multi-place non-ejection aircraft. Capt. Theron Toole, commanding officer of Navy Medicine Operational Training Center in Pensacola, and Capt. Leslie Kindling, officer in charge of Naval Survival Training Institute in Pensacola, visited ASTC JAX to observe one of the initial training sessions with the newly mission capable Normobaric Hypoxia Trainer (NHT). “The NHT provides the most realistic hypoxia training for these aircrew members,” said Kindling, who has oversight of the Navy’s eight ASTCs and reports directly to Toole. The NHT simulates the reduced oxygen pressure of a depressurized aircraft at altitude, allowing the aircrew to practice their emergency procedures while experiencing the signs and symptoms of hypoxia. Hypoxia is a lack of sufficient oxygen to tissues in the body to maintain performance function, which can cause light-headedness, dizziness, tingling, euphoria and decreased visual accuracy. Training aircrew to recognize the symptoms helps ensure they can take action before progressing to potentially life-threatening situations while at high altitudes.

Bryan Goodman, of Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron (VQ) 4, with his oxygen mask while Goodman simulates piloting a plane during training in the newly operational Normobaric Hypoxia Trainer (NHT) at Aviation Survival Training Center Jacksonville, July 22. The Sailors will attempt to simulate pilot and aircrew activities at altitudes greater than 24,000 feet to become aware of signs and symptoms on hypoxia.

“I really felt the effects more this time around, especially feelings of disorientation and difficulty breathing,” said Naval Aircrewman (Mechanical) 2nd Class John Booker, who was taking the hypoxia training qualification for the third time. Aircrew are required to take a refresher course every four years. The NHT at ASTC JAX is the

first operational trainer in the fleet and has replaced the low-pressure chamber that was decommissioned in February 2017. The Sailors assigned to ASTC Jax have been at the forefront of implementation and operational testing for the new trainer since its inception in summer 2018. “As a staff, ASTC JAX became

100 percent qualified in only 18 working days, on top of the already established training schedule,” said Chief Naval Aircrewman (Avionics) Scott Counselman, ASTC JAX leading chief petty officer. “Nothing has been dropped or moved. We began operational testing late last July, and the ASTC staff has been learning new operating procedures, assisting in writing standard operations and safety procedures, and conducting risk management analysis.” Counselman said once the testing was complete and the procedures validated, the staff qualification process commenced and proceeded at a rapid pace, leading to the introduction of the device to refresher Naval Aviation Survival Training Program classes in July. With the ASTC JAX NHT now fully functional, ASTC JAX staff will work with staff at the remaining seven ASTCs. ASTCs Norfolk, Virginia; Cherry Point, North Carolina; Whidbey Island, Washington; Miramar, California; Pensacola, Florida; Lemoore, California; and Patuxent River, Maryland are scheduled to become fully operation by summer 2020. The Naval Survival Training Institute provides safe, effective and relevant aviation survival and human performance training as the execution arm of the Chief of Naval Operations-mandated Naval Aviation Survival Training Program (NASTP), and is a component of the Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) based in Pensacola, Florida.

The challenges and rewards of being an instructor pilot at NASWF By Lt.j.g. Nicholas Wren NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Office

N

aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) located just north of Milton is one of the most unique airfields in the Department of Defense. NASWF is also the busiest airport in the country and perhaps the world. It conducts almost one million flight operations annually, which beats out Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport with its roughly 900,000 movements. A number of factors contribute to NASWF’s excellent safety record. The aircraft used to train student aviators are safe and well-maintained. There are also very rigid and well-defined operating and safety procedures that each student pilot must have memorized. This ensures that the airspace around Whiting Field flows like clockwork. Another important factor at Whiting Field critical to the base’s safety record is the instructor pilots who train the students. Their role ensuring safe mission completion is vital. The instructor pilots at Whiting Field are some of the best pilots in the world, and their work training students is a critical part of the training mission here. We talked recently with a T-6B Texan II fixed wing instructor pilot. Lt. Christine Mayfield, VT-2, at NASWF North Field. The following questions and answers help illustrate the challenges and responsibilities inherent in teaching student aviators. What led you to join the Navy and what did you do/fly before coming to Whiting? I joined the Navy because I felt military service was what

I was called to do and I felt that the Navy was the best fit for me. I was grateful to learn prior to commissioning that the Navy was offering me the opportunity to become a naval aviator. Prior to joining the Navy, I flew commercial general aviation for four years. Once in the Navy, I completed primary flight training at VT28 in Corpus Christi, Texas, flying the T-34. From there, I went to HT-8, flying the TH-57. Once I earned my wings, I was assigned to HSL-49 (helicopter anti-submarine light) flying the SH-60B, later transitioning to HSM-49 (helicopter maritime strike) flying the MH-60R. What led you to flight instructing? Was it something you wanted to do early in naval career? A passion for teaching my passion led me to want to come back and instruct in CNATRA at the VT’s (fixed wing squadrons). I had a great experience in primary and learned a lot from the instructors at VT-28. Since then, I have wanted to become a part of that same experience for future aviators. Briefly describe the training it takes to become an instructor – how it was different from regular flight school? To become an instructor here at Whiting, we complete a training syllabus at the Fixedwing Instructor Training Unit (FITU). We start out learning

how to fly the T-6B and how to fly in the local area. Once we are qualified in the aircraft, we fly a series of student syllabus events with FITU instructor pilots (IPs) who demonstrate to us common student errors and student tendencies to give us the opportunity to learn how to instruct in the aircraft. It was different from regular flight school as it was a much more accelerated syllabus and expectations were much higher because of that, as well as because of the operational and training requirements of the Navy. The FITU takes approximately three to four months. What typically do you do with a student on their first flight? For FAM 1 (first flight), I typically take students to the MOA (military operation area) to give them the opportunity to get used to flying the plane in a

straight and level, non-dynamic maneuvering environment. Once the student feels comfortable manipulating the controls and trim switches, I run through an entire contact profile in a demo-then-do exercise. What is the primary purpose of the first solo and what must they know? The first student solo is a confidence-building flight for the Student Naval Aviator (SNA). After being able to safely demonstrate all contact maneuver procedures in accordance with the Flight Training Instruction and general knowledge of all governing directives, the students are given the opportunity to fly a T-6 solo and practice landings. Other than knowing all the same things they’re required to know for their check ride, students should know that it’s normal to be nervous but they should trust and have confidence in their

training. How challenging is it to get a student to their first solo on average? Depends on the student. Some can be very challenging and require a lot of time. Others can be relatively easy. Regardless, I’ll spend as much time as it takes to get a student where they need to be. Describe the purpose/role of an instructor in the entirety of flight training. In the Navy, flight instructors have many different roles other than just teaching students how to fly. We act as a leader and mentor for students, regardless if they are our on-wings or in our squadron or not. We provide insight into the many different platforms or communities and opportunities that come with those communities that the Navy has to offer. We help prepare students for both their next training command as well as for the fleet. From then to now have you changed your instructing style, or changed ways you do things, or maybe learned new techniques that worked better? I try to match my instructing technique and style to each individual student’s way of learning. Along the way, I have picked up a lot of new techniques and different way to teach different things. Everyone learns differently, so having a lot of different tools in your pocket is beneficial when it comes to working with a variety of different students. What would you say was the most gratifying moment of teaching you had in the aircraft? Every on-wing I have gotten the opportunity to watch pin their wings have been my most gratifying moments. In addition, watching my on-wings go from zero to solo then to primary complete is also rewarding.

Summer’s hot temperatures emphasize importance of heat index and physical exercise From www.ready.navy.mil Extreme heat can be very dangerous. In extreme heat and high humidity, evaporation is slowed and the human body must work extra hard to maintain a normal temperature. This can push the body beyond its limits. In the United States each year, 400 people die from heat-related complications, more than from any other natural disaster. Onboard Navy installations, flag conditions are used to communicate hazardous heat conditions. It is important for Navy personnel and families to understand these flag conditions and what each color means. Flag conditions: White: Extremely intense physical exertion may precipitate heat exhaustion or heat stroke, therefore, caution should be taken. Green: Discretion required in planning heavy exercise for unseasoned personnel. This is a marginal heat stress limit for all personnel. Yellow: Strenuous exercise and activity (e.g. close order drill) should be curtailed for new and unacclimated personnel during the first three weeks of heat exposure. Red: Strenuous exercise curtailed for all personnel with less than 12 weeks training in hot weather. Black: Physical training and strenuous exercise suspended for all personnel (excluding operational commitment not for training purposes). How to prepare for extreme heat: Be informed and know heat terminology: • Heat Wave – An extended period of extreme heat, usually combined with excessive humidity. • Heat Index – A number of degrees in Fahrenheit (F) added to the air temperature that tells how hot it feels with the relative humidity. • Excessive Heat Watch – Conditions are favorable for an excessive heat event to meet or exceed local Excessive Heat Warning criteria in the next 24 to 72 hours. • Excessive Heat Warning– Heat Index values are forecast to meet or exceed locally defined warning criteria for at least two days (daytime highs = 105 to 110° Fahrenheit). • Heat Advisory – Heat Index values are forecast to meet locally defined advisory criteria for one to two days (daytime highs = 100 to 105° Fahrenheit). • Listen to local weather forecasts and stay aware of upcoming temperature changes. • Be aware that people living in urban areas may be at greater risk from the effects of a prolonged heat wave than are people living in rural areas, due

What to do in extreme heat conditions: • Slow down and do not do anything too strenuous. • Stay inside as much as possible. • Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. • If air conditioning is not available in your home, stay on the lowest level or go to a public building with air conditioning. • If you stay in your home without air

conditioning, make sure there is a way, such as a fan, to circulate the air around you. • Drink lots of water, even if you do not feel thirsty. • Eat well-balanced, light, and regular meals. • Avoid alcohol, caffeine and salt. • Wear loose-fitting, lightweight and lightcolored clothing. • Be aware that a power outage or drought can result from a heat wave. Heat emergencies: • Keep a lookout for possible heat emergencies: • Heat cramps – Muscle spasms and aches from heavy exertion in extreme heat. They are usually the first sign of heat-related complications. • Heat exhaustion – A form of mild shock that results from insufficient body fluids due to extreme heat and excessive exercising. The blood flow to the skin increases, decreasing blood flow to vital organs and raising the body temperature, increasing the risk of a heat stroke. • Heat stroke/sun stroke – The body’s temperature control system stops working, causing body temperature to rise so high (103ºF or more) that there may be brain damage or death. If you experience or observe any of the above conditions, seek medical attention immediately.

Art with Pins and Needles

By Kaitlyn Peacock Gosport Staff Writer Tired of the drab clothes on offer at Walmart or the stores at Cordova Mall? Looking for something more from your outfits? Well, you have the ability to do that with your own two hands. Surprise! First City Art Center is offering their Pins and Needles class with instructors Melanie Elliott and Nester Taylor. According to her biography, Elliott has been employed at JoAnn Fabric Store for 14 years and has been teaching for the past 13. She is also the person who first taught Taylor how to sew. After he went to JoAnn’s to pick up some fabric, she took him under her wing and taught him everything she knew. Now, Taylor is a student at Pensacola State College and runs his own

studio, Studio G, out of FCAC. He teaches the Pins and Needle class alongside Elliott. For Taylor, his garments are a way to express his art in the pattern as well as the way the fabric is put together. Taylor and Elliott have teamed up to help instruct Pins and Needles as a way to help people interested in their own style and fashion be able to express themselves. The class is designed to teach the very basic skills all the way up to more advanced skills, meaning anyone can enter the class and learn to make their own clothing. Taylor describes the first two classes as “boot camp,” where attendees learn the very basics. The six-week course has already run once and is on its second series, with some students returning to learn even more skills. Returning students are

given more private instruction along with a combined class where they learn more advanced techniques. While most people have to look up videos of how to do the very basic of sewing techniques, replacing a lost button for example, this class offers a next-level experience. “There’s nothing like this around here,” Taylor said. “There’s some fabric stores that teaches sewing, but there’s nothing else. Designers who know how to sew are out there, we just don’t have a group. I’m trying to create that society for us.” The class isn’t just for people interested strictly in typical fashion and clothing. Taylor also said the lessons can be applied for more abstract projects like designing and creating cosplay costumes. The techniques are still the same, even if the projects are a little different, and it’s all the same expression of art. “That’s a part of art, it’s fashion, it’s what interests them,” Taylor said. “They don’t have to sew a three-piece suit with a button down, if they want to sew something like a Link, Zelda, princess whatever uniform so they can express themselves, that’s the same.” Pins and Needles is currently ongoing at FCAC. The series will be offered again, so keep an eye on www.firstcityart. org for updates or for more information on the class.
