When we opened the first Green Beans Café 20 years ago this month to serve U.S. troops on post in Saudi Arabia, we simply wanted to offer “15 minutes of home” to service members far from their own. At that time, in that place, service members didn’t have any options for a handcrafted cup of coffee in a relaxing café setting. Having grown up in Los Gatos, Calif., enjoying the café experience with friends and family, we were inspired to fill the void. We couldn’t have foreseen the global impact our small Bay Area com-

pany would grow to have in 20 years. Today, we hand-craft more than 20,000 cups of coffee daily in companyowned and operated cafés, in 10 countries on four continents. For two decades, from San Francisco to Baghdad, we’ve been privileged to answer the call to serve in communities, neighborhoods, airports, bustling cities and even active conflict zones, where no one else would. From the very beginning, we’ve held a strong admiration for our service members, and supporting them has been part of our DNA for 20 years. Whether it’s providing 15 See GBCC on page 2

I am humbled to be in the position to lead an enterprise that is manned with such a stunning amount of proven talent. Our nation’s all volunteer force, and supporting teammates, are second to none. That is because of you. I believe that the most

valuable asset within an organization is the high performing human component. We will work together to ensure we have the best, sustainable environment in order to continue our history of delivering when requested. Make no mistake, we are facing a threat level that has not been witnessed for quite some time and urgency is the manner in which we must all act as the complexity of threats increase in size and scope. We must all be focused on the pointed end of the spear.

USAF’s Kittinger to attend Seville Quarter’s 50th anniversary event From staff reports

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the opening of Rosie O’Grady’s, retired Air Force Col. Joseph Kittinger II will be in Pensacola Aug. 14 through Aug. 16. There will be meet and greet with Kittinger Aug. 14 at 4 p.m. in Lili Marlene’s World War I Aviator’s Pub. The event is open to the public. Kittinger is a former USAF command pilot and an avid gas balloon pilot. He set multiple world records during his time in military service and after retirement, including a record for the highest skydive from a height greater than 31 kilometers (19 miles). Kittinger was also the first man to make a solo crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in a gas balloon. Early in his military career, he served as a fighter pilot during the Vietnam War, where he achieved an aerial kill of a North Vietnamese MiG-21 jet fighter and was later shot down himself. He spent 11 months as a prisoner of war in a

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols 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 bi-plane 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 the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 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. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

North Vietnamese prison. Upon his release, Kittinger was assigned to the Aerospace Medical Research Laboratories at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. He participated in Project Excelsior, meaning “ever upward,” as part of research into high-altitude bailouts. During this time he made a series of three extreme altitude parachute jumps from an open gondola carried aloft by large helium balloons. Of the three jumps, only one was performed without any mechanical failures. Coincidentally his comrade, Bob Snow, opened Rosie O’Grady’s on Aug. 16, 1967, just seven years after his final Excelsior jump. Kittinger retired from activeduty in 1978 and initially went to work for Martin Marietta Corporation in Orlando, Fla. He later became vice president of flight operations for Rosie O’Grady’s Flying Circus. For more information e-mail Jubilee@rosies.com

Before tragedy strikes, stand for change By MCSN Jennifer M. Kirkman USS George H.W. Bush Public Affairs


EDITERRANEAN SEA (NNS) – There is no acceptable number of suicides.

Because each life is immeasurably valuable the Navy continues to provide help to struggling Sailors and fights to get the number of shipmates who take their life down to zero. However, one of the greatest challenges in getting help for someone is identifying they need help in the first place. People can be good at making their issues hidden, and it can be hard to spot the warning signs. Sadly, YN1 Kaila Spradlin was confronted with this reality first hand. “On October 26, 2015, my life changed forever,” said Spradlin. “I remember every detail about that day. Most days it replays in my head over and over again, like it just happened yesterday.” Spradlin’s father had been the command master chief at Mid-Atlantic Norfolk for two months and had just returned from a 10-day vacation in Europe. By all visible accounts,

he was fine. “We had just talked on Facetime the night before,” said Spradlin. “He told me about how excited he was to finally have me stationed in Norfolk with him for the first time in my career. He even sent me an e-mail just hours before it happened, but it was nothing out of the ordinary.” Spradlin was on her way home when she received a call from one of her master chiefs asking to come back to work. “That’s when they broke the news to me,” said Spradlin. “My dad had died by suicide in our home. I didn’t see the signs. Maybe it was because I didn’t live with him, but I talked to him every day.” Spradlin, who was in the process of switching commands, found comfort from her chain of command and resources she never even knew existed. “After I checked on board, I needed an outlet to help me

move past this and not carry it around like a burden,” said Spradlin. “I decided to join the suicide prevention team, which I now run.” Working with the suicide prevention team, she educates Sailors on how to spot the warning signs. She also stresses the importance of destigmatizing the issue of suicide. Being afraid to talk about suicide can further isolate those struggling with thoughts about taking their

lives. Additionally, having faced the tragedy of suicide first hand, Spradlin wants others to know there is no shame in asking for help; in fact, the opposite is true. There is an abundance of resources available to them and she lets Sailors know their request for help will be met with care and support. “No matter your rank or position, Sailors need to know that it can happen to anyone at

any time,” said Spradlin. “I don’t want anyone to go through what my family and I have gone through. Be the change. Speak openly about suicide and mental health, and get rid of the stigma.” For more information, visit http://www.navy.mil or follow the Navy on Facebook and Twitter.

NMOTC trains first Navy R2LM team Story, photos by MC2 Michael Lieberknecht Navy Medicine Operational Training Center


ORFOLK – Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) commenced training recently for the Navy’s first Role 2 Light Maneuver (R2LM) course at Naval Station Norfolk. The objective of the pilot course, being held at Surface Warfare Medical Institute (SWMI) East, is to apply the concept of combat operational and medical training to a seven-person combat trauma team. “NMOTC and SWMI East are responding to the operational medicine need to train doctors, nurses and corpsmen that really simulate what our people will see in the battlefield and an operational setting, whether that’s on a ship or in a tent in Iraq or Afghanistan,” explained Cmdr. Christopher Niles, director of training at NMOTC and R2LM course pilot chairman. The mission of the Navy R2LM team will be to provide rapidly deployable, urgent sur-

gical abilities as close to the fighting as possible. The team is being designed as a mobile unit equipped to set up a functioning medical area with advanced trauma life support capabilities. Classes and field exercises are led by instructors who have operated in the same environments and for the same units that the R2LM team will be headed to following the course. Their real-world experience for the program was a decision to attempt to enhance the courses’ instruction while fostering

teamwork built on student and instructor shared sense of duty and commitment. Teamwork is heavily emphasized during the three week trauma training course. The curriculum aims to teach students to work together and communicate as a unit when treating patients in a traumatic situation. “The main benefit is the team concept,” said Niles. “We train them as a team, so they are always working together from the start.” R2LM students have completed just under a week of training, receiving classroom lectures, equipment briefs and completed a field exercise. With two weeks left, and the training

increasing in activity, the students remain positive.“It’s great so far, I’ve got a really good

team and I’m very lucky,” said Cmdr. Michael Johnston, the R2LM team’s officer-in-charge.

Outpatient infusion services available at NHP Story, photo by Jason Bortz Naval Hospital Pensacola


aval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP’s) Multi-Service Ward provides infusion services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The infusion services provided are outpatient intravenous (IV) services that allow patients to go home after the infusion instead of being hospitalized for days or even weeks. Some examples of infusion services provide by NHP include iron sucrose for iron deficiency, antibiotics for infections resistant to short term antibiotics, blood transfusions and hydration fluids for pregnant women. The hospital does not provide chemotherapy infusions or pediatric infusions for children under the age of 5. “Some IV infusions can last several weeks,” said Lt.j.g. Sheila Pesta, department head for the multi-service ward. “We work around the patient’s schedule to keep them out of the hospital and at home after their infusion.” Some antibiotic infusions can last six to eight

weeks and require daily treatments. The treatments can also last several hours. Instead of being hospitalized for the duration of the treatment, patients can visit the hospital at their convenience. Infusions are done in a private room where patients can watch television and can even be served a meal from the hospital’s galley. “Patients have busy lives,” said Kimberly Nelson, infusion nurse at NHP. “They have jobs and children and having an infusion can be a disturbing enough process without worrying about the time to get it. We try and make the process a little easier for patients by working with

their schedule and making them as comfortable as possible.” For patients that require long term infusions, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) can be placed in the upper arm to eliminate the need for frequent IV sticks. The PICC will remain in place for the duration of infusion. “We had a patient that was afraid she might lose her job because she needed daily infusions for a long period,” said Pesta. “Since we are available 24 hours a day, she had her infusion done in the evening after work.” The infusion services are available to any TRICARE beneficiary that is

CNO’s ‘A Design fo r Main taining Mar it im e Super ior ity’ on line From Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson released “A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority,” earlier this year, a document that addresses how the Navy will adapt to changes in the security environment and continue to fulfill its mission.

To read A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority go to https:// www. cnic. navy. mil/ content/ dam/ cnic/ cnrse/ pdfs/ CNRSE/ CNO% 20Design% 20for% 20Maintaining%20 Maritime%20 Superiority.pdf. The term “design” refers to the document’s built-in flexibility, recognizing the rapid rate of change occurring in both technology and the maritime domain.



“This guidance frames the problem and a way forward, while acknowledging that there is inherent and fundamental uncertainty in both the problem definition and the proposed solution,” said Richardson. The CNO’s design reaffirms the Navy’s mission, describes the strategic environment and identifies four lines of effort, each with corresponding objectives to guide the actions of the Navy and its leaders.

NAS Whiting Field selects Sailors of the Quarter By Ens. Tom Nessler NASWF Public Affairs


aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) recently selected the Sailor of the Quarter (SoQ), Junior Sailor of the Quarter (JSoQ) and Blue Jacket of the Quarter (BJoQ) for the third quarter of fiscal year 2017. Every quarter, commands in the United States Navy recognize and honor Sailors who demonstrated sustained superior performance, military bearing, leadership and adherence to the core values of honor, courage and commitment. This recognition motivates Sailors to continue to perform to the best of their ability and stand out among peers. ABH1 Bryan Nutter, MA2 Sebastian Rivera and ABH3 Martheen Morales respectively earned the honors.

Nutter, recipient of Sailor of the Quarter, served as fire captain at Navy Outlying Landing Field (NOLF) Santa Rosa, managing six fire fighters and two emergency vehicles. He has responded to seven precautionaryemergencies and was directly responsible for initiating and documenting 81 National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) reports. “Aviation Boatswains Mate 1st Class Nutter is the true definition of a deckplate leader,” said Lt. Mark Rodriguez, the crash

crew department head. Receiving the Junior Sailor of the Quarter, Rivera served as patrol officer for NAS Whiting Field and has conducted 75 random anti-terrorism checks and responded to 25 calls for service. As duty armorer, he was responsible for the issuance, accountability and maintenance of 175 weapons, 3,000 rounds of ammunition and 52 radios. Also serving as the command fitness leader, he led the security department to a 100 percent pass rate for 2017 cycle 1 PRT.

“Master at Arms 2nd Class Rivera is an example to all the Sailors onboard NAS Whiting Field. It’s an honor to have him as part of our team,” remarked Lt. Fernando Cerezo, Navy security department head. Morales, Blue Jacket of the Quarter, served as an E-28 operator, supply petty officer, hazmat petty officer and calibration petty officer. Morales maintained the accountability of more than 200 hazardous materials and hazardous waste of the division. He volunteered more than 28 hours

for the NASWF Junior Enlisted Association. “Petty Officer Morales is an outstanding E-28 team member; he presents a positive attitude every day that motivates others in the division,” Cmdr. Eric Seib, Operations Officer stated. NAS Whiting Field has a large core of enlisted Sailors who perform superbly daily and contribute tremendously to the successful completion of operations at the installation. Picking just three is always difficult and command leadership is understandably excited about being able to honor their outstanding achievements. “These Sailors have worked hard and the recognition is more than deserved. Their individual efforts and their ability to work within a team directly impacted flight operations and the security of NAS Whiting Field. We could not be more proud of these Sailors,” NAS Whiting Field Command Master Chief Lee Stephens emphasized. (Photo not available for MA2 Rivera).

NASWF Commissary wins promotion award By Jay Cope NASWF Public Affairs Officer


ack in the spring it may have seemed as if the NASWF Commissary produce department got a little “nutty” for two weeks, but there was a method to their madness. Wonderful Pistachios held a promotion contest for commissaries around the world and Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s (NASWF’s) efforts to emphasize the healthy snack were an opportunity to crack the winner’s circle. Winners were selected based on the greatest unit percentage change in sales for May 22 to June 4, as

compared to the same period last year. Additionally, the team had to sell all the Wonderful items that were being promoted. The produce team’s display helped to increase sales for the highlighted products by 179 percent, taking first place for stores in the “Sales Band 1-4 categories.” However, the real winners are the store’s patrons. The commissary will receive $200 worth of gift cards that they will be able to present to customers. The current plan is to hold a drawing for the cards during the next sidewalk sale – if the cards do not arrive in time, they will be presented during the holiday season. “This is a special win, because with the award we will be able to give back to our customers,” NAS Whiting Field Commissary Store Director Jonathan Kennedy said. “It is nice to be able to promote healthy living, and with being a small store it was great to get recognition while competing with the much larger ones.” Produce Manager Randy Hutzenbuehler and his staff Forrest Campbell, Byron Tripp and Norma Martin assembled and marketed the display.

The NASWF Commissary netted $200 in gift cards for its award-winning Wonderful Pistachios display.

Summer’s hot temperatures emphasize importance of heat index and physical exercise

BLUE: Less than 79.9 degrees

From Naval Safety Center

NORFOLK,Va. – With hot temperatures for this time of year, it is important to understand the Navy Heat Index and the Physical Exercise Chart. The Wet-Bulb Globe Temperature Index (WBGTI) takes into account four variables: air temperature, humidity, radiant heat and air movement. This reading gives a more accurate measurement of heat stress than any one reading alone. Heat related illnesses include: heat rash, cramps, exhaustion and stroke. These illnesses are a real danger to people not accustomed to the stress of hot weather exercise. Heat Index and Physical Exercise Chart (NavMed P-5010 CH 9) • Less than 79.9 degrees: Blue/white – Extremely intense physical exertion may precipitate heat exhaustion or heat stroke, therefore caution must be taken. • 80-84.9 degrees: Green – Discretion is required in planning heavy exercise for unacclimatized personnel. This is a marginal heat stress limit for all personnel. • 85-87.9 degrees: Yellow (Amber) – Strenuous exercise and activity must be curtailed for new and unacclimatized personnel during the first three weeks of heat exposure. Outdoor classes in the sun must be avoided when the WBGT Index exceeds 85. • 88-89.9 degrees: Red – Strenuous exercise

GREEN: 80-84.9 degrees

YELLOW: 85-87.9 degrees

must be curtailed for all personnel with less than 12 weeks training in hot weather.

Dehydration and heat stress equals poor performance • Working or exercising in hot weather will result in extra fluid loss, leading to dehydration. • Dehydration contributes to fatigue and may make you more susceptible to cramps, heat stress and heat stroke. • Drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids several hours prior to exercise and drink cool water often during physical activity. If you’ll be participating in the activity for more than one hour, replenish with a sports drink, which has a 5 to 10 percent concentration of carbohydrates in addition to a small amount of sodium. • Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water. Thirst is a late signal of severe fluid loss. Symptoms of dehydration include muscle cramps, decreased blood pressure and dizziness. Even small degrees of dehydration will cause a decrease in performance and this can occur at any stage of competition. • Navy installations use blue, green, yellow, red and black flags to alert all onboard their installation to hazardous heat conditions as determined by Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT). Commanding officers of installations are responsible for ensuring commands recognize the need to limit or curtail physical training and strenuous exercise during redand black-flag conditions.

RED: 88-89.9 degrees

BLACK: 90 or above degrees

• 90 degrees or above: Black – Physical training and strenuous exercise must be suspended for all personnel. (Excludes operational commitment not for training purposes). Wearing body armor or NBC protective uniforms adds approximately 10 points to the measured WBGTI. Limits of exposure should be adjusted accordingly. Onboard NAS Pensacola, WBGTI measurements are taken and logged by the command headquarters (Bldg. 1500) quarterdeck personnel. These temperature conditions are communicated to tenant commands via the base’s At Hoc mass communication system, and are reflected in a series of colored flags which fly at several locations on base.

Local Sea Cadets, veterans link up with beach air show flights From Tammy Duncan U.S. Naval Sea Cadets, Independence Squadron


n July 8, 22 young cadets from U.S. Naval Sea Cadets, Independence Squadron engaged with more than a dozen World War II veterans to learn their stories. The cadets participated in a veterans’ flight, held annually at the Pensacola Aviation Center located near the Pensacola Airport. The veterans flight is a sponsored event that was part of the Pensacola Beach Air Show held the week of July 8. The World War II veteran aviators were provided the opportunity to fly in the air show’s Stearman aircraft during their visit. As the group waited, they were able to reminisce about wartime and aviation experiences with the young men and

woman of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Independence Squadron. The cadets were very appreciative to be invited as part of the event and enjoyed the exchange with the veterans. Afterward the cadets shared the stories they had heard with

dencesquadron1/. Sea Cadets is a program for young men and women in a drug- and gang-free environment that promotes teamwork, responsibility, respect and leadership skills. Graduates of the Sea Cadets frequently choose a career serving in the country’s armed forces but this is not a requirement to join. The skills learned in this program are useful in any life path the youth chooses. If a cadet does choose the armed services they frequently will have earned early advancement in the US Navy and Coast Guard (E-3 after boot camp). As many as 12 percent of the graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy are former Sea Cadets.
