NAVAL AIR SYSTEMS COMMAND, PATUXENT RIVER, Md. – Prospective flight officers at Naval Air Station Pensacola were recently introduced to a rising star in the future of aviation training. The undergraduate military flight officer operational flight trainer, also known as the UMFO OFT, is the first advanced-jet student trainer to replicate the rear cockpit of the T-45 aircraft and the first of six devices recently delivered to NASP. “The simulator brings tremendous capabilities to the student,” said Capt. John Feeney, Naval Aviation Training Systems (PMA-205) program manager, whose office oversaw the design and develop-
ment of the trainer. “All naval flight officer (NFO) students assigned to tactical aircraft platforms, as well as international students, will eventually utilize the device. With the simulator taking precedence in the training curriculum, the cost savings to the Navy will be substantial.” The UMFO OFT capa-
bilities range from navigation and electronic warfare training to hands-on communication and radar manipulation. Approximately 150 students per year, utilizing the advanced-jet training syllabus, will train in both airto-air and air-to-ground scenarios for interactive

Building partnerships with Africa and beyond Story, photo by Paul Roarke NETSAFA International Training Center
Africa. Just the word brings to mind vivid images of dense jungle, wild animals, extreme heat and dramatic scenes of exotic native culture. Africa; the “cradle” of human civilization, home to more than one billion people speaking a surplus of 2,000 languages spread out over 12 million square miles of desert, savannah and tropical forest. Raw, mysterious and often dangerous; yes, Africa is all this and more. Unfortunately however, in recent years Africa has become more known for its extreme poverty, piracy, disease, civil unrest, strife and internal warfare. To help overcome their myriad of difficulties Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) in support of the United States Security Strategy assists partner nations with the development of effective and stable militaries. In keeping with this goal, lead instructor Paul Roarke and instructor AE1 James Ridgeway, made up a twoman Mobile Education and Training Team (MET) from the NETSAFA

The mission was to train more than 30 of the Sierra Leone armed forces’ most senior non-commissioned officers (NCO) and petty officers. Land navigation, leadership and instructor training were a few of the wide range of topics we taught during three intense weeks of instruction.

mission rehearsals. State-of-the art technology was incorporated in all aspects of the design to include visual out-of-the-window display and enhanced-motion seats. The highfidelity device is based on actual aircraft instrumentation and cockpit configuration. The UMFO OFT provides a realistic training environment for F/A-18D Hornet, F/A-18F Super Hornet, EA-18G Growler and EA-6B Prowler NFOs. In another first, a strike fighter NFO student completed the pioneer training mission June 1. “The look and feel of the new simulator was very realistic,” said Marine Corps 2nd Lt. Clinton Kelley, Training Air Wing Six student. “I was impressed from the beginning. ‘In flight,’ the graphics were incredible, very clear and detailed to include buildings, bridges and landmarks that looked 3D. The visuals included other features, such as the hangar, other T-45s and even the Blue Angels parked on the flightline.” Unlike students before him, Kelley will conduct some of his training inside the simulator, vs. only flying in the T-39 or T-45 aircraft. Beginning October 2013, most of the training will be completed using the device. “Prior to the UMFO OFT, instructors conducted simulated training on the instrument flight trainer and the radar desktop trainer,” said Tommy Ober, PMA-205 Chief of Naval Air Training lead. “The new device combines both trainers and introduces additional functionalities, enhancing student knowledge and skills before they set foot in their assigned aircraft platform.” For Kelley, the experience enhanced his tactical insight and afforded familiarity with the aircraft’s tactical configuration. “The instructors were very knowledgeable of the new system, and I really enjoyed the experience. I am privileged to be the first user and the first of a new generation of NFOs that will train using the UMFO OFT,” Kelley said.

Navy names Suiter as 2011 top scientist of the year By Jacqui Barker Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division Public Affairs
PANAMA CITY, FL – Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) scientist Dr. Harold R. Suiter has been named the 2011 Dr. Delores M. Etter Top Scientist and Engineer of the Year Award recipient in a letter signed by the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research Development and Acquisition June 29. Suiter, a native of Hillsboro, Ohio, is an optics expert in NSWC PCD’s Intelligent Sensing and Irregular Warfare Branch and was one of four award recipients from the Naval Sea Systems Command (NavSea). His nomination package competed against 63 other Department of the Navy nominees; he will receive the award today (Aug. 17) in a ceremony at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The other NavSea recipients were Dr. John A. Lawton (Dahlgren, Va.), Densified Propellant Team (Indian Head, Md.), and Glenn T. Donovan (Newport, R.I.). “He earned the award for the development of

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher W. Plummer Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White 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.
enced the unique instruction. What made the experience especially gratifying, said Roarke, was that they were some of the best students he had ever taught. “They were eager to learn and brought a lot of real combat experience and practical leadership skills to the table,” he said. AE1 James Ridgeway was very impressed with the attitude of his students. “These guys were very motivated to hear about our military and how we do business, especially how we lead our people,” explained Ridgeway. “This was my first time training internationals and
it was a great experience. To see how these people operate without the funding and support that we’re used to in the U.S. military was amazing.” Later this year, several hundred of Sierra Leone’s forces will deploy to Somalia and Darfur as part of a United Nations peace-keeping mission. Several students who attended the course will take part in the operation. Because the two MET instructors knew about the upcoming peace-keeping mission, they tailored training covering International Professional Advanced Leadership (IPAL) to their needs. This included relevant international legal issues such as, “The Laws of Armed Conflict” and “Rules of Engagement.” As one senior NCO explained, “I feel that everything that was discussed in this course will be very valuable during our peace-keeping missions that my country is scheduled to do in the future.” The instructors had the opportunity to meet with U.S. Ambassador Michael Owen, who was pleased to hear that the training provided was successful and will help Sierra Leone develop an effective and stable military, and strengthen the bond with them and the U.S. commitment to the region.
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,

image enhancement algorithms used with the U.S. Navy Common Neutralizer system’s video subsystem that substantially improved performance of the system in turbid waters,” said NSWC PCD Commanding Officer Navy Capt. Scott Pratt. “He has been instrumental in the continued development of a number of airborne and underwater imaging systems to provide advanced capability for the detection of targets in various environments. We are thrilled for Dr. Suiter to have earned this well deserved and prestigious distinction.” Suiter has been employed at NSWC PCD for 28 years and holds a bachelor of science and doctorate in physics, both earned from Ohio State University. He said he was grateful when he learned he’d heard he was a named
awardee. Suiter believes personally and professionally the award has significant meaning. “I was surprised and grateful. Of course, this award is really for the Neutralizer team, of which I am only one person. Without the help of John Dudinsky, Dave Jennings, Paul Moser, and the people of Areté Niceville, this project would not have been possible,” said Suiter. “It is good to see a project go all the way through transition, and to be acknowledged for the part I played in it. Even better is the thought that it will make the warfighter’s job easier.”
NSWC PCD’s Science, Technology, Analysis and Simulation Deputy Department Head Brenna Williams said Dr. Suiter’s scientific research has resulted in hardware and software that has dramatically improved at-sea imagery. “Dr. Suiter’s accomplishment will significantly increase the performance of the video subsystem by enabling the system to be employed with

the existing sensing hardware while providing the operator the ability to acquire and identify their targets at significantly increased ranges,” said Williams. “The resulting capability will reduce risk to operators by reducing the time spent to reacquire and neutralize targets in turbid water environments.” It was Suiter’s interest in astronomical imaging that allowed him to combine field-flattening techniques used by astronomers with other image enhancement tolls to develop a set of image enhancement algorithms for use with the video subsystem employed on the mine neutralization system. Through research and experimentation, he determined the algorithms could substantially extend the distance at which objects in turbid water could be identified with low-cost cameras.

SIHANOUKVILLE, Cambodia (NNS) -- Pacific Partnership 2012 (PP12) held a closing ceremony Aug. 11, finishing the two week mission that took place across four different provinces including Sihanoukville, Kampot, Koh Kong and Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The ceremony consisted of two key speakers: William E. Todd, U.S. ambassador to Cambodia, and Vice Adm. Tea Vinh of the Kingdom of Cambodia Ministry of Defense. Cambodia is the last of four-mission ports supported during the four-and-a-half month PP12 deployment aboard the Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19). PP12 Mission Commander Capt. Jim Morgan said he had a wonderful experience building relationships with the Cambodian locals.
“This is a personal issue for me. I am determined to ensure we are providing the very best housing throughout the fleet – but I also need your help. If you help me by reporting your housing issues, we can help ensure you maintain a house or barracks room that you can feel proud to say is your home.” Vice Adm. Bill French, Commander, Navy Installations Command
Report issues and take action to prevent problems “Should a health or safety issue arise during a Sailor’s stay in Navy barracks, government-owned or privatized family housing, we’ll work with the Sailor as an advocate for their needs until we find a solution. If the issue cannot be resolved, we will work with the Sailor to find alternate accommodations. Whether in a barracks room or home, if you live in Navy housing and suspect a health or safety condition exists, please report it to the local Private-Public Venture (PPV) office, the local Navy Housing Office or your barracks manager. Use your chain of command; talk to your LPO, LCPO, division officer, ombudsman and even your commanding officer until you feel you’re getting the right amount of attention on your issue. If you feel you are having health issues that may be related to conditions in your home or barracks room, see your medical provider immediately and then report the issue to your command
medical officer or representative and your chain of command. “Taking personal responsibility to prevent an issue such as mold before it gets out of hand is essential. In many environments mold can grow no matter how well we maintain the home or condition the air quality. Be vigilant and ensure areas of your home or barracks room that tend to have more moisture, like kitchens and bathrooms, are kept clean on a regular basis. Often times, all it takes is a once weekly wipe down with mold/mildew cleaner. “As a ready and resilient force, 21st century Sailors and their families must feel confident they can report personal and housing concerns in order to stay safe and healthy in the places they live so we can all focus on our mission, our duties and those we care about.” Public Affairs blog post by Vice Adm.

‘Suspects’ caught during ATFP drill From NASP Integrated Training and Readiness
NAS Pensacola Security and Fire & Emergency Service Gulf Coast personnel participated in an Antiterrorism Force Protection (ATFP) readiness field training exercise Aug. 9 aboard NASP. The exercise required coordination between NAS Pensacola, the U.S. Coast Guard and other tenant commands as well as off-station civil agencies. The scenario involved intelli-
gence regarding a likely terrorist attack on the Coast Guard Cutter Cypress in port. As part of the exercise, a “gate runner” and other suspects were apprehended and questioned. A smoke generator was used to simulate a bomb aboard the Coast Guard cutter and fire and security forces were dispatched. The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) was activated and an action plan was developed. The Installation Training Team (ITT) conducts four integrated exercises per year.

Service leaders weigh in on BRAC, renewable energy By Amaani Lyle American Forces Press Service
MONTEREY, Calif., – Army, Navy and Air Force officials discussed renewable energy milestones, force structure changes and the impact on military and surrounding communities affected by base realignment and closure here recently. Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary of the Army for installations, energy and environment; Roger M. Natsuhara, acting assistant secretary of the Navy for energy, installations and environment; and Terry A. Yonkers, assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and logistics, took part in a
Base realignments and closures have proven to be effective and objective in reducing domestic infrastructure and reconfiguring what must remain, Hammack said. Four rounds of BRAC took place after the Cold War wound down and force structure was declining, she said, in contrast to the 2005 BRAC, which took place during a protracted war. “The 1988, ’91, ’93 and ’95 rounds combined produced 97 major base closures, 55 significant realignments and $22 billion in implementation costs resulting in … $8 billion in annual reoccurring savings,” Hammack said. BRAC 2005 enabled the Army to reset its infrastructure to accommodate the return of forces
“Wind turbines are an important part of
the renewable energy push for this country ... and we’re a strong supporter of that.”

roundtable discussion at an Association of Defense Communities conference. The service officials outlined strategies to adapt to future force structure changes and reductions in supporting infrastructure at U.S. and overseas military installations without compromising the nation’s defense capabilities. “The U.S. is at a strategic turning point after we’ve had over a decade of war,” Hammack said. “We know as the end-strength comes down, force structure changes will be required under the Budget Control Act.” The Army already has announced its end-strength reductions could total about 80,000 Soldiers by fiscal 2017, she said.
from Europe and Korea while revitalizing the Army Reserve and National Guard, she added. “In the last six years, we have closed 97 sites and returned 23,000 acres to host nations, she said. “In the next four years, we plan to close another 23 sites and return 21,000 acres, primarily in Germany,” Hammack said, citing similar progress in Korea during the same timeframe. There, the Army closed 34 sites, with 7,300 acres returned to the community and another 20 sites projected for closure, with 9,400 acres returned to the host nation. “What remains in Korea and Germany, we believe, is necessary for the support of this nation,” she said. The Army will continue to
seek congressional authorization for additional rounds of BRAC, Hammack said, noting property conveyance remains a priority. “Putting excess property back into productive reuse facilitates job creation, and that’s never more important than it is today,” she said. “We know that some of these properties have more extensive environmental remediation than others, but we focus on those that can be transferred for beneficial economic use as a first priority.” Hammack also underscored the Army’s commitment to one of its largest endeavors yet: the deployment of three gigawatts of renewable energy on Army, Navy and Air Force installations by 2025. The Army has partnered with local communities and the services to ensure renewable, reliable energy through analysis of fuel, water and energy needs while reducing the load of power systems in a digital society, she said. “Collectively, these advancements are changing both the technology we employ and the manner in which we plan and execute our operations,” Hammock said. Yonkers said the Air Force has taken on similar measures and efficiencies to sustain and modernize its core systems, develop a scalable and responsive force, and preserve readiness while taking care of airmen and their families. He warned of paying for unnecessary infrastructure that “eats up” dollars better directed to modernization, sustaining weapons systems and supporting the quality-of-life improvements for Airmen. He also lamented the possibility another half-trillion dollars pared from the defense budget over the next 10 years that will be triggered in January by a “sequestration” mechanism in the Budget Control Act if
Roger M. Natsuhara
Congress fails to come up with an alternative. Sequestration, he said, would have “serious impact” on the Air Force’s ability to conduct its assigned missions. But despite the new fiscal reality, Yonkers said, communities continue to demonstrate strong support and promising, innovative ideas in support of bases. “We have 180 renewable energy projects in operation or under construction at 77 of our Air Force bases,” Yonkers said, also noting 20 solar, wind, waste, geothermal and biomass projects that will move the service closer to its goal of deploying one gigawatt of energy by 2016. In California alone, the Air Force already has solar energy projects at Edwards Air Force Base and Travis Air Force Base, he said. Combined and when complete, they will create 420 megawatts of power, he added. Similarly, the Navy will continue to pursue its energy goals through ongoing community and industry partnership, Natsuhara said. “The big goals for us will be the 50 percent alternative energy for our bases,” he said. “We look forward to working with the communities as we look at renewable energy, microgrids and other (avenues) to meet all of our very aggressive goals.” And while the BRAC process
has reduced the service’s installations to from 150 to 70 in the United States, the Navy now is in more of a “growth mode” overseas, as the new defense policy pivots attention to the AsiaPacific region, Natsuhara said. “We have quite an extensive program that we’re going to have to implement … very soon in Guam, Australia and Hawaii,” he said. “We’re also moving a few ships to Singapore,” said Natsuhara. A lot of these bases, he added, are going be of a different and unprecedented model. “There are going to be less of the traditional bases where we have our families and modern support facilities,” he said. “There’s a lot of pressure on our facility side as we go overseas.” With fleet concentrations primarily in the northwest and southwest regions of the United States, Natsuhara said, the Navy can benefit from being able to analyze how to make its bases more efficient as it further aligns its forces. Community collaboration has produced successes along the way, he said, including Virginia’s Naval Air Station Oceana, which was considered for closure in 2005, but through legislation and joint councils, has become more compatible with the community. “To date, the Oceania area and the state have contributed about $63 million in some of the landuse purchases to build more compatible lands,” he said. At Naval Air Station Kingsville, Texas, the Navy worked with wind developers on private lands to make turbine operations compatible with air training operations, Natsuhara said. “Wind turbines are an important part of the renewable energy push for this country,” he added, “and we’re a strong supporter of that.”

NAS Whiting Field’s current Sailors of the Quarter Story, photo by Lt. j.g. Tim Mosso NASWF PAO
NAS Whiting Field has recognized its distinguished enlisted personnel for the third quarter of 2012. Three of the base’s Sailors will be honored for comprehensive excellence in the discharge of their professional duties and breadth of community involvement. “Naval Air Station Whiting Field would like to congratulate our Third Quarter Sailor and Junior Sailor of the Quarter along with our Blue Jacket of the Quarter,” Command Master Chief Rafael Rosado beamed. “The competition was fierce, all are deserving of recognition, and all are winners. Their ‘can do’ spirit also infects others to give and do more,” he added with pride. AC1 Nina Buruca was selected as Sailor of the Quarter. Buruca serves as the South Field Tower leading petty officer for Training Air Wing Five’s rotarywing training operations. Buruca was lauded for her “innate ability to motivate, lead, and mentor … resulting in two reenlistments and three Perform-toServe approvals” by her Leading Chief Petty Officer, ACC Jacqueline Williams. The air station’s Sailor of the Quarter has amassed 13 professional qualifications and five supervisory designations over the course of a 10-year naval career. Beyond her dedication to the immediate challenge of safely guiding the student aviators, the base’s Sailor of the Quarter tackles a vast array of collateral challenges. Buruca provides comprehensive guidance to 65 Sailors in her capacity as departmental career counselor. In this role, she offers professional and personal guidance including advice concerning continuing education and direct mentorship. In her collateral capacities, Buruca serves the air station as the command voting assistance officer, First Class Petty Officer Association treasurer and Crash Division Dependent Care manager. Buruca’s supervisors lauded her dedication to the greater Milton community via her efforts as assistant command Drug Education for Youth Program coordinator. She provides guidance to area youths concerning avoidance of illicit substances, promotion of self-confidence and the importance of teamwork. Attuned to broad academic horizons,

Buruca has committed to in-depth study across a diverse spectrum of disciplines. Buruca holds an Associate of Arts degree in general studies, a Bachelor of Arts in criminal justice and she has completed her Master of Arts in homeland security. “I feel happy. It’s rewarding to be selected, and I’m glad to do well while serving the Navy. I’m thankful for my chain of command and my mentors who have been there for me,” Buruca said. ABH2 Derrick Watkins was recognized as the air station’s Junior Sailor of the Quarter. Watkins’ leadership as the NASWF Crash Division training Petty Officer provided stellar guidance to the 117 Sailors in his charge. Divisional personnel have secured 87 qualifications under Watkins’ tutelage. Watkins’ commitment to aviation safety training has made a profound impact on each of the base’s nine Navy outlying landing fields (NOLF) manned by his trainees. Their competence in emergency procedures and preventative routines reflect their exposure to Watkins’ subject matter mastery and his talents as a peer mentor. “Possessing a wealth of knowledge and technical expertise, (Watkins) consistently strives to share his knowledge with other Sailors,” Williams declared. The Junior Sailor of the Quarter has demonstrated commitment to professional and personal growth. Watkins holds dual warfare qualifications as a surface warfare specialist and an aviation warfare specialist. He is a strong proponent of physical fitness and seeks to advance command fitness standards through his role as command fitness leader. A service-oriented Sailor in all respects, Watkins has sought to impart
new perspectives and ideas to fellow Sailors through his efforts as president of the Command Diversity Committee. Off duty, Watkins has been an active volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, the Children’s Home Society and East Milton Elementary. ABH3 Andan Rempel was selected as NAS Whiting Field’s Bluejacket of the Quarter. Rempel has been recognized as an indispensible contributor to safe operations and personnel training at the air station and its outlying fields. Rempel’s supervisors cited his commitment to excellence as a key contribution to more than 300,000 safely executed flight operations. Moreover, his performance in several instances of actual emergency reinforced command confidence in this junior Sailor’s competence and depth of character. “He has proven to be a top-quality leader. He shows genuine concern for his Sailors’ professional growth … his take-charge attitude and initiative to job accomplishment consistently produces positive results,” Crash Division officer ABHCS John Coger praised. A true leader by example, Rempel exhibits dedication to reaching his personal potential while assisting peers to attain theirs. His professional accomplishments include qualification in air warfare and collateral duties as hazmat petty officer and (Navy instructional) publications petty officer. He actively pursues continuing education and has completed college courses in economics, geography, American history, psychology and human relations. A practitioner of the old Navy aphorism “one hand for the self, one for the ship,” Rempel exhibits dedication to the advancement of his fellow Sailors. In
2012, this budding leader’s mentoring has been a key factor in the aircraft fire fighting qualification of three Sailors at NOLF Pace. “He readily accepts increased responsibilities without hesitation and constantly produces outstanding results,” Williams noted. Off duty, Rempel is active within the base and Milton communities. His charitable engagement reflects the same energy and depth of involvement that defines his professional character. Rempel’s contributions include 30 volunteer hours as a fitness instructor for children, home construction with Habitat for Humanity and work with East Milton Elementary School. Rempel is an avid competitor in the air station’s Captain’s Cup softball, Frisbee golf and kickball leagues. The Sailor of the Quarter Program is sponsored by the Chief of Naval Operations. Sailor of the Quarter is reserved for the command’s outstanding performer of enlisted rank E-6; Junior Sailor of the Quarter is awarded to the top E-5; Bluejacket of the Quarter encompasses ranks E-1 through E-4. All selectees gain automatic eligibility for the CNO’s Navy-wide Sailor, Junior Sailor and Bluejacket of the Year recognition. “The Sailor of Quarter Program is designed to recognize our Sailors’ hard work both on and off duty. These Sailors are often selected without their knowledge, which speaks to the humility and commitment to the Navy core values they have,” Rosado explained. Quarterly awardees represent the leaders in their respective military professions, and selection is a highly competitive process.

School zones surround NASP: watch your driving, children are back in school Aug. 20 From www.nsc.org
hether children walk, ride their bicycles or take the bus to school, it is extremely important that they take proper safety precautions. Here are some tips to share with your children to ensure their safety when traveling to school. Riding the bus to school: getting on the school bus: • When the bus arrives, stand at least three giant steps (six feet) away from the curb. • If you have to cross the street in front of the bus, walk on the sidewalk or along the side of the road until you are five giant steps (10 feet) ahead of the bus. Then you can cross the street. • Be sure the bus driver can see you and you can see the bus driver. • Never walk behind the bus. • If you drop something near the bus, tell the bus driver. Never try to pick it up first because the driver may not be able to see you. Behavior on the bus: • When on the bus, find a seat and sit down. Loud talking or other noise can distract the bus driver and is not allowed. • Never put head, arms or hands out of the window. Keep aisles clear – books or bags are tripping hazards and can block the way in an emergency. • Before you reach your stop, get ready to leave by getting your books and belongings together. • At your stop, wait for the bus to stop completely before getting up from your seat, then walk to the front door and exit, using the handrail. Getting off the school bus: • If you have to cross the street in front of the bus, walk at least 10 feet ahead of

the bus along the side of the road until you can turn around and see the driver. • Make sure the bus driver can see you. • Wait for a signal from the driver before beginning to cross. • When the driver signals, walk across the road keeping an eye out for sudden traffic changes. • Do not cross the center line of the road until the driver has signaled that it is safe for you to begin walking. • Stay away from the wheels of the bus at all times. Walking to school: • Walk to school with a group of children and always have a responsible adult with you. • Always walk on the sidewalk if one is available.
• Walk facing the traffic, if no sidewalk is available. • The safest place to cross is at a street corner or intersection. • If you are 10 years old or younger, you need to cross the street with an adult. You should not cross by yourself. • Before you step off the curb to cross the street, stop and look all ways to see if cars are coming. When no cars are coming, it is safe for you and an adult to cross. But look left-right-left as you do it, and hold the adult’s hand. • Walk, don’t run. This gives time for drivers to see you before you enter the roadway. Running also makes you more likely to fall in the street. • Don’t dart out in front of a parked car. The driver of the car coming down the street will not be able to see you.
Riding a bicycle to school • Always wear your helmet when riding your bicycle. • Make sure that your helmet fits correctly. The helmet should fit low on your forehead so that two fingers fit between it and your eyebrows. • To ride safely, you need to know the rules of the road. If you don’t, then you should not ride in traffic or without an adult. • Ride on the right side of the road or trail in a single file line in the same direction as other vehicles and come to a complete stop before crossing streets. • Wait for a driver’s signal before crossing the street. • When you ride your bicycle, you should wear bright colors during the day and right before the sun rises or sets.
Charting your back-to-school experience this year (NAPS) – If you’re among the 37 million the Census Bureau says has a family member in school or the roughly 6 million with one in college, these tips could help improve your student’s chances of making the grade. High school and college students should: 1. Make a to-do list every day. Put things that are most important at the top, do them first and check them off. 2. Use spare minutes wisely. Get some reading done while you’re standing in a line, commuting on a bus or train or waiting for something to start. 3. Find the right time to study. You’ll work more efficiently if you figure out when you do your best work.

4. Review your notes nightly. This reinforces what you’ve learned, so you’ll need less time and effort right before a test. You’ll also be ready if you get called on in class or have to take a pop quiz. 5. Get homework help. There are many apps out there that can help students solve the toughest homework problems. Dictionary and atlas apps are also great resources. Got deadlines? There are apps for mangaing those, too. 6. Maximize current programs: Many computers come with online safety programs. Parents can use “Parental Controls” in Windows and Mac operating systems and the like for monitoring and managing what children view online.

NETC chief selectees face challenges during induction season By Stave Vanderwerff NETC PAO
The more than 300 first class petty officers within Naval Education and Training Command’s (NETC) domain selected to become chief petty officers (CPO) began their third week of transition Aug. 13. They will officially don khaki uniforms and their first set of chief’s anchors Sept. 14 during pinning ceremonies across the fleet. According to NETC Force Master Chief April Beldo, the effectiveness of Navy training rests on the shoulders of its instructors and chief petty officer community. “The success of our fleet is reliant on the ability of our Sailors,” Beldo said. “Our outstanding instructors go above and beyond what is expected of them and I’m a firm believer that the achievement of our training can be unequivocally linked to the dedication and zeal of our CPO mess.” Sailors working as instructors train the next generation of Sailors through the review and teaching of rating-specific information daily. “Our chief selectees are evidence of the outstanding instructors we have training and educating our Sailors,” said Beldo. “Choosing instructor duty is an excellent career choice for Sailors looking to enhance their careers and help shape the future of the Navy.” Chief select CTN1 Jessica Gaukel, an instructor at Center for Information Dominance (CID), agrees with Beldo. She thinks her selection was, in part, because she chose to be challenged by becoming an instructor, saying it was one of the wisest decisions she has made personally and

professionally. “I wanted to make a difference and be a part of improving and preparing our Sailors for the fleet,” she said. “The operational tempo is challenging and exciting and has been the most difficult position and mission I have ever worked, but also the most rewarding.” Chief select CTT1 Aaron Ricker, an instructor at CID, says that instructing built his confidence. “Before, I was unsure of my abilities and lacked the confidence to lead,” he said. “I definitely benefitted from being an instructor; all you have to do is look at the number of selectees who were instructors.” Chief select AW1 Tommy Henderson
says he gained experience working alongside instructors at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC). “Working with the fleet’s best instructors helps you take on new challenges and perform at a top level,” he said. “Understanding how the Navy’s training system operates can help fully round out your career and prepare you for the challenges of being an effective leader.” To ensure a smooth transition, chief petty officers acting as mentors assist the selectees by training, guiding and advising them. “Each selectee is assigned a sponsor who acts as their mentor,” said Beldo. “During the changeover their sponsors make sure that they understand that chiefs
actively participate in the CPO mess, and that within the mess, fellow chiefs have a wealth of know-how and experience to help them through this significant transition, and throughout the remainder of their career as a chief.” In addition to learning about naval history and heritage, Navy programs and leadership, the selectees are tested physically, coordinate community relation activities and make preparations for various CPO events, such as the annual Khaki Ball at which the selectees are formally welcomed into the chiefs’ community. “Being a chief isn’t easy. That is why the CPO 365 Induction Season is designed to challenge our CPO selectees by putting them through a very demanding process that requires their complete mental focus and physical energy,” said CMDCM Dominick Musso, NETC Operations senior enlisted adviser. “The leadership training, physical fitness regimen and team building exercises our CPO selectees participate in help prepare them for the leadership challenges they will surely face as chief petty officers.” “When our CPO selectees don the uniform of a chief petty officer, they will not only assume greater responsibility, they will also serve as visible deckplate leaders and technical experts in their fields. They are charged with leading and training their junior officers and enlisted Sailors and developing them into a cohesive team poised to go into harm’s way and accomplish any mission. They are also called upon to use the collective experience of their fellow chief petty officers in order to solve difficult problems, enhance mission readiness and create an environment of esprit de corps,” said Musso.

MWR makes a splash Family celebration serves as way to say goodbye to summer By Emma Harlow Morale, Welfare and Recreation
As the summer comes to an end, the children and families of NAS Pensacola will get a chance for one last back-to-school bash at MWR’s Family Summer Splash Party. The fun-filled event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow, Aug. 18, at the Barrancas Ball Fields off Radford Boulevard on NAS Pensacola. MWR’s celebration of summer is the second annual Summer Splash Party. Last year, an unexpected 1,000 plus people attended despite the threat of rain and a little thunder. Once the weather cleared, children swarmed the soccer field,
which was filled with enormous inflatable water slides, an 80-foot obstacle course, slip and slides, a surf simulator, a jousting ring, moon bounce houses, a ball pit, a water gun play area and a play zone. There was also a Spider Mountain, which featured a rock climbing wall, a spider web climbing tower and three bungee jumps. This year, there will be a selection of both wet and dry games. Anyone planning to attend should bring a bathing suit, beach towels, chairs and sun screen. MWR will provide plenty of picnic tables and shaded areas. The event is free to all MWR authorized patrons (active duty and their dependents, retirees and their dependents and DoD civilians and their depend-
ents) and there will be food and beverages on sale. Fun Times Concessions will be setting up to provide a carnivaltype menu with corn dogs, funnel cakes, cotton candy, nachos, ice cream and fresh lemonade. Domino’s Pizza will also be on site providing pizza by the slice or pie. MWR’s Youth Center “Torch Club” will be selling beverages to keep visitors hydrated as well as sno-cones and popcorn. Representatives of a number of MWR programs and facilities are scheduled to set up booth displays and interactive games to help educate the families of NAS Pensacola on what MWR has to offer.
