NMOTC graduates Navy’s first R2LM team Story, photo by MC2 Michael Lieberknecht Navy Medicine Operational Training Center

Students of the Navy’s first Role 2 Light Maneuver (R2LM) course participate in an Aug. 7 shipboard combat surgery training exercise aboard guided-missile destroyer USS Bulkeley (DDG 84). The objective of the pilot course, being held at Surface Warfare Medical Institute (SWMI) East, a detachment of Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC), is to build a mobile unit equipped to set up a functioning medical area with advanced trauma life support capabilities.

The Navy’s first Role 2 Light Maneuver team (R2LM) graduated from training Aug. 11 at Surface Warfare Medical Institute (SWMI) East onboard Naval Station Norfolk. The team consists of seven Navy Medicine professionals who met each other for the first time three weeks ago. During the course, R2LM members shared prior experiences, attended briefs, and drilled on treating combat casualties, honing their skills and strengthening their bond as a team. “Medically, everyone on the team knew what they were doing,” said R2LM student Lt. j.g. Patrick Magajna. “It’s more of getting seven people who had never work together to work together.” The element of taking Sailors from varying medical backgrounds and putting them

on a team designed to deploy as a combat trauma and surgical team to both the battlefield and at sea is a first in the Navy. “We all have our own different experiences throughout our medical careers,” said R2LM student HM2 Kevin Munro. “When you bring all of that together it makes a very strong, cohesive medical unit.” Some of the more trying training scenarios happened on guided-missile destroyer USS Bulkeley (DG 84) where the team was put to the test in a simulation scenario treating wounded patients in confined and un-familiar areas. “I think we came together a lot,” said R2LM student Lt. Michelle Miller. “We used the knowledge we had, some of us have some ship-board experience. We were happy for the end of the day when that evolution was completed.” SWMI is a detachment of Navy Medicine Operational See NMOTC on page 2

Renters insurance no longer included in PPV housing leases By Navy Installations Command Public Affairs

In accordance with NavAdmin 198/17 renters insurance will no longer be provided by Public Private Venture (PPV) partners as part of their housing rental agreements. The change will be implemented within six months following the NavAdmin release so that Sailors will have enough time to obtain the best renters insurance plan that fit their needs, should they choose to do so.

All Sailors are encouraged to obtain renters insurance, however, regardless of where they choose to live. “This change will provide equality among all Sailors – those renting on the economy and within PPV housing,” said Navy Installations Command Housing Director Greg Wright. Sailors in existing PPV leases will continue to be covered by the renters insurance provided by PPV partners until the expiration of their current leases.

New annual Periodic Health Assessment (PHA) requirement From Naval Hospital Pensacola

Effective now, service members attached to units in the Pensacola area undergoing their annual Periodic Health Assessment (PHA) must complete the online Annual Periodic Health Assessment, DD Form 3024 in order to book a PHA with a health care provider. This NMOTC from page 1

Training Center (NMOTC), whose commanding officer, Capt. Mark Goto, was in attendance to see the team off and congratulate them on their hard work. “I am extremely proud of the effort and collaboration that has gone into the inaugural R2LM class,” said Goto. “Particularly the instructors, subject-matter experts and team members from around the country who have come together to have a team trained and ready to deploy to answer the urgent needs that our armed forces are facing in the current tumultuous situations worldwide. All to save that one service member so that he or she can return to their families.” NMOTC and SWMI plan to continue the R2LM training in the future, looking to provide the Navy with more highly flexible life-saving teams. “NMOTC never intended this to be just a ‘one-and-done’,” said Cmdr. Christopher Niles, Director for Training at NMOTC and R2LM course pilot chairman. “We aim to continue our initiative by improving R2LM from course to course. This was the start, and NMOTC is here to see it through.”

new Department of Defense mandated process includes the DD 3024 electronic PHA self-assessment, a medical record review and an encounter with a qualified health care provider. Navy and Marine Corps personnel can access the DD 3024 at https://data.nmcphc.med.navy.mil/PHA /index.aspx. Air Force and Army per-

sonnel undergoing PHAs at Navy military treatment facilities in Pensacola must complete the self-assessment through the Navy portal pending Navy facilities gaining access to Air Force and Army PHA portals. Personnel who completed their PHA in 2017 before Aug. 1 are not required to complete a PHA under the new sys-

tem. Those personnel should schedule their 2018 PHA within 30 days of the anniversary of their last PHA. Service members with questions about the new DoD PHA program can contact their local Naval Branch Health Clinic or the Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) Readiness Center at 452-7500.

NSWC Panama City hosts ANTX 2017 By Jacqui Barker Public Affairs Officer, NSWC Panama City Division

PANAMA CITY (NNS) – Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) hosted the Advanced Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX) 2017 for the first time Aug. 15 and 16 in Panama City. ANTX 2017, a high velocity learning event, was a multi-site event hosted by both NSWC PCD in Panama City and Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Newport on the same date in two locations. The ANTX 2017 theme was “Battlespace Preparation in a Contested Environment (BPCE).” ANTX provided a low-risk environment in which scientists and engineers evaluated

their technological innovations at the research and development level before their technologies become militarized and integrated at the operational level. ANTX is an annual multi-day event originally created by NUWC Division Newport to demonstrate future Navy technologies in action today. Naval warfare centers, universities and industry partners were invited to showcase their latest unmanned systems and related technologies. NSWC Panama City Division hosted more than 30 displays and demonstrations along the pier as well as in the waters of St. Andrew Bay where unmanned underwater vehicles were tested and demonstrated for ANTX attendees. Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit (EODMU) 6 Detachment

Panama City conducted a pouncing demonstration in the bay waters Aug. 15. Consistent with the Battlespace Preparation in a Contested Environment theme, prototypes exercised the collection, fusion and transmission of data, with coordination between autonomous undersea, surface and air platforms and their operators. NSWC Panama City focused on the mine warfare mission (MIW) while NUWC Newport drew on prototypes providing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). Both sites also exercised payload delivery and cross-domain unmanned air, surface and underwater vehicle operations.

and Commissary and has a drive-thru window for prescription pick up or for dropping off prescriptions. Prescriptions dropped off at the Satellite Pharmacy will be available for pick up after two hours or the next day. The final option available is to wait in the Main Pharmacy’s lobby for the prescription to be filled. The average wait time for prescriptions is 10 to 15 minutes for active-duty service members and 20 to 30 minutes for all others, though wait times can fluctuate. “We wanted to give our beneficiaries options to pick up their prescriptions,” said Cmdr. Ben Schwartz, director for clinical support services, NHP. “We know our patient’s time is valuable, and we try to do everything we can to reduce wait times and provide outstanding customer satisfaction.” These options are available to all TRICARE beneficiaries. Patients with a primary care manager (PCM) at NHP have an additional option of having prescriptions sent to the Satellite Pharmacy, where it can be picked up the next business day utilizing the drive-thru window. TRICARE Standard or other TRICARE beneficiaries that are seen by a provider outside of NHP can ask that their prescriptions be sent to NHP as an electronic prescription. An electronic prescription is a computer generated prescription sent by a health care provider through a private, secure and closed network to a pharmacy. The prescriptions are not sent through the Internet or as an e-mail, so a patient’s personal information is safe. Electronic prescriptions will not be filled until a beneficiary arrives at the pharmacy to pick them up, and beneficiaries will have the same options for normal prescriptions. A full list of medications available at NHP or any MTF Pharmacy is available at www.express-scripts.com. The site also has information on

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.

One year out, but the ride is not over yet By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

A

year ago, my husband Francis stood on a stage before our family and friends in his Navy dress uniform and spoke about his 28 years of service in the military. The audience looked on curiously as the band played “Old Glory” and the flag was passed slowly, methodically from rank to rank. When “The Watch” was recited, men blinked and cleared their throats and women dug for tissues in their purses. After speeches were said and flowers were given, I grabbed Francis’ arm. To the lilt of the bosun’s whistle, we walked briskly up the burgundy-carpeted aisle and past the rigid side boys, Francis giving his final salute as an active-duty U.S. naval officer. That symbolic moment in time felt emotional, powerful, wonderful. Despite our uncertain future outside of the Navy, we were focused on the last 28 years of Francis’ military service and how thankful we were for it all. The experiences, the challenges, the opportunities, the adventures, the honor, even

the hardships and the strength built therefrom. We floated through the weekend on pride and gratitude, dancing like sweatsoaked fools at our party. Reality came like a rickety wooden roller coaster. The kind you aren’t initially afraid to board, because well, how bad could it be? People have been taking this old ride forever, right? Once you lock yourself in, you start feeling queasy as it tick-tick-ticks its way up the slope. Then suddenly, it dives and your stomach drops into your shoes. You think you might be hurled to your death, or at least hurl up the corn dog you just ate, but as the centrifugal force pins you into the seat, you realize that you are in for the long haul. As the momentum carries you up the next hill, you look out and see the peaks and valleys and twists and turns to come. You know you must

That is what reality feels like after the pomp and circumstance and open bar of a military retirement ceremony.

A couple months after our friends and family went home with rolled up programs and sweaty party tshirts in their suitcases, we moved off base into a tiny temporary rental where we spent the long, dark winter searching for our new place in the world. Our pillow talk was initially laced with nervous excitement: Will Francis make more money in the civilian world? Will we attend swanky corporate parties? Will we make new friends who golf and meet at wine bars on Fridays? Will we finally turn in the minivan for an SUV with that new car smell? In our naiveté, we believed what everyone told Francis: “With your experience, you’ll write your own ticket.” Turns out, that ticket was harder to write than we realized. It took many months of gazing wall-eyed at LinkedIn; writing and rewriting resumes; networking with Tom, Dick and Harry; pouring over application questions; rehearsing for interviews; tsking about unreturned calls and e-mails; and trying desperately to not take

“sorry, we chose someone with corporate experience” personally. Finally, it came. The job offer was located out-of-state from the high school our youngest attended, but what the hell, it’s a great job, take it. Our original vision of a cushy post-retirement lifestyle had to be amended to include living apart during weekdays, negotiating the hopelessly tangled ropes of corporate politics, making due with our old minivan with more than two-hundredthousand miles and a leaky roof and missing our military friends. One year out, our metamorphosis from military to civilian life is still in the gooey larval stages. We remain very much a family in transition. As we navigate the peaks and valleys and twists and turns of this extended roller coaster run, we will hold tight to the military pride that welled up in us last summer on the day of Francis’ retirement ceremony. Our military foundation will keep us grounded, so we can sit back, raise our hands in the air and enjoy the ride no matter where it takes us.

NAVY 311 answers the help desk call From Sea Warrior Program (PEO EIS PMW 240)

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – Have a question? Don’t know who to call to find help with your issue? The answer is as simple as dialing 1 (855) NAVY 311, or navigating to www. navy 311. navy. mil. Serving as the single point of entry for assistance, NAVY 311 is your guide when you don’t know which help desk to call. NAVY 311 services are available to Sailors and other service members, military families, civilians, veterans, contractors and the occasional inquisitive citizen. “The NAVY 311 service desk is always available,” said Kris Leonard, Sea Warrior (PMW240) assistant program manager for NAVY311. “We support over 1.3 million requests annually and provide a gateway to assistance on a number of issues, seven days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.” NAVY 311 is your gateway for the following issues: • Systems and equipment: (e.g., hull, mechanical and electrical, weapon systems, IT, technical data). • Quality of life: (e.g., medical and chaplain care). • Personnel: (e.g., career, manpower, training). • Supply and logistics: (e.g., requisition follow-ups, ordnance, food service, household goods).

• Installations and facilities: (e.g., environmental, public works, community support) Requests to NAVY 311 are frequently related to systems and equipment aboard ships. NAVY 311 provides support to Sailors at sea who are searching for information or parts to keep everything in working order. In one case, a Sailor from the USS Emory S Land (AS 39) initiated a chat session with NAVY 311 for technical documentation. The Sailor needed information to obtain a tech manual for the Shop Shipfitter Punch and Shear Machine. NAVY 311 researched the request and provided the Sailor with the proper title and stock number. In another example, a DC1 aboard USS Oak Hill (LSD 51) did not know where to go with questions about Commuted Rations (ComRats) so he went to the NAVY 311 website and started a chat. NAVY 311 was able to get him answers from the Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Helpdesk.

NAVY 311 is a single point of entry service connecting Sailors and other service members, military families, civilians, veterans and contractors to hundreds of help desks, call centers and support organizations across the Navy. Access NAVY 311 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year by dialing 1 (855) NAVY 311, or visiting www.navy311.navy.mil. Photo illustration by Krishna Jackson

NAVY 311 is here to help, as a staff sergeant recently found out when he did not know who to reach to repair a cracked LCD screen. The answer was simple after he sent an internet web request to NAVY 311 who then forwarded his request to Naval Surface Warfare Center Division Crane where a technician verified a new screen would be shipped and installed upon receipt. Beyond serving Sailors, NAVY 311 is a great resource for family members and civilians with connections to the Navy. The fiance of a seaman recruit going through boot camp at Great Lakes Recruit

Training Command telephoned NAVY 311 because she had not received a Navy allotment payment for herself and daughter. She needed to contact her fiance. NAVY 311 forwarded this request to Chaplain Care and she was put in contact with the recruit via the local duty chaplain. As a result, the recruit and his fiance were able to sort out their finances. No matter your reason for contacting NAVY 311 or what source of support ultimately answers your inquiry, NAVY 311 will track your ticket from beginning to end to ensure you get the answer you need. It is easy to call at 1-855-NAVY 311 (1-

855-628-9311) and easy to click at www.navy311.navy.mil (online form or chat). The Sea Warrior Program (PMW 240) manages a complex portfolio of information technology (IT) systems and is part of the PEO for Enterprise Information Systems Command.

Navy Doctrine Library moves, NWDC announces improved online site From Navy Warfare Development Command Public Affairs

NORFOLK (NNS) – The single authoritative repository for all Navy doctrine and tactics related products has moved. The new platform for the Navy Doctrine Library (NDL) delivers better customer ease of access, more dependable functionality and adaptability to changing user requirements. Navy Warfare Development Command is the executive agent for the Navy Doctrine Library System (NDLS) that is used to distribute doctrine to fleet users and to manage the content of the entire doctrine library. NWDC just completed migration of NDL content to a webbased, collaborative platform to make it more intuitive for users and to provide linkages to other NWDC products. “Today, the Navy’s doctrine is more up to date than it has been in more than 20 years,” explained Robert Wilhelm,

NWDC publishing manager. “As a feedback mechanism for doctrine users, the previous NDLS website itself contributed to currency. The migration of the Navy Doctrine Library to the collaborative portal will ensure continued improvement.” The new library site builds on the feedback, collaboration and popular features of the original NDLS. The site provides feedback to document owners through notifications sent when users post comments about publications. Library users can elect notification of changes to the library or specific publications using an alert feature. “Users can create personalized document lists by tagging and annotating webpages that are accessible via a per-

sonal tag cloud,” said Orlando Irizarry, Navy doctrine information manager. “This feature can be accessed easily from each page.” Irizarry explained that Navy doctrine users have three routes to find and access doctrine through the site. They can drill down through the library navigation hierarchy, use the library site search engine or browse mission area bookshelves that organize Navy, Joint and Allied publications by subject. “The NDL integrates with other products managed by NWDC and the warfighting development centers,” Wilhelm said. “For example, the new portal supports the collaborative authoring tool we have been using the last couple of

years to increase productivity and save time.” He said the move also simplifies site maintenance and the portal architecture affords opportunity for long term growth and additional functionality. “The move supports a more flexible approach for packaging doctrine,” Wilhelm said. “Future additions may include smaller and more focused documents, multimedia, tablet-friendly documents, quick reference guides and the like. We will be able to better meet customer needs.” The Navy Doctrine Library is also automatically pushed to the fleet via the Collaboration at Sea site (CAS). Common Access Card holders can request access to the Navy Doctrine Library by going to the NWDC portal: https://portal.nwdc.navy.mil/ndls.

Remembering the Yeomen (F): WAVES 75th anniversary By Dr. Regina T. Akers Naval History and Heritage Command

Seveny-five years ago, July 30, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt signed Public Law 689 creating the women’s reserve as an integral part of the and solidifying Navy WAVES’ place in history. However, the origin of WAVES goes back to World War I, when Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels sought additional workers after learning that the civil services could not meet the need for clerical support. Since the Naval Reserve Act of 1916 read that any U.S. citizen could join, Daniels recruited women. On March 17, 1917, Loretta Perfectus Walsh distinguished herself as the first enlisted woman, forever changing the Navy. More than 11,000 women joined her, working in naval districts across the United States, particularly in Washington, D.C. The women volunteered to submit to Navy rules and regulations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and to be assigned wherever the Navy needed them, most for four years. After completing an application, an interview, a physical exam and a business skills test, qualified women took the oath. The shortage of clerical workers was so acute that many started their jobs the same day wearing their civilian clothes. Others went home to await their orders. The Navy had a few administrative problems to address. For the first time, Sailors’ gender had to be indi-

cated, so it classified these women as Yeoman (F). Since the Bureau of Navigation automatically assigned new Sailors to ships, women were assigned to sunken vessels, unused barges or docked vessels. Men occupied most of the barracks, so women had to provide their own housing, commuting from home, renting a room in a house or sharing an apartment. The Navy gave Yeomen (F) a daily subsistence allowance to cover their housing and meals. The Navy did not send them to Great Lakes Naval Training Station but developed a night school for instruction in naval procedures and policies, ship and plane identification, ranks, culture and customs. The Yeomen (F) contributed to the war effort in clerical and non-clerical specialties, such as switchboard operators, stenographers, recruiters, deciphering code, painters, look-outs for naval bases, translators and messengers. They dispersed pay, designed camouflage for ships and produced munitions. As Daniels observed, “They did everything except go to sea.” They became so proficient in their jobs that, in some cases, one of them could replace two Sailors for combat duty. A few supervisors recommended them for officer ranks but Daniels could not permit that without congressional approval.

other individuals believed the women would render the Navy less efficient. The Yeoman (F) also endured verbal insults and individuals published negative editorials questioning Daniel’s decision to enlist women. The Navy stopped recruiting on Nov. 11, 1918, but did not demobilize the female yeomen from active duty until 1920, because they had signed up for four years. Moreover, their supervisors urged Daniels to retain their talent after the war by hiring them for civilian positions doing the same job. Many welcomed the opportunity, and several later retired from the Navy Department. Some naysayers and some members

of Congress did not believe another war would erupt and, if it did, women would not be needed. Thus, they rewrote the Naval Reserve Act of 1916 to read that “any male citizen could join.” As a further insult, Congress and other military leaders tried to prevent the women from eligibility for the World War I Victory Medal until advocates intervened. Nurses remained the only women in the Navy until 1942. There are some significant similarities between the Yeoman (F) and WAVES. Both forever changed the status of military women. They volunteered; they were not drafted. They helped to dispel myths and stereotypes assigned to

women in uniform. They enhanced the legacy of women who supported the nation during previous wars, conflicts and crises and paved the way for those who followed. Before World War II ended on Sept. 2, 1945, aboard USS Missouri (BB 63) in Tokyo Bay, naval and congressional leaders reflecting on the women’s contributions considered granting them a permanent place in the peace time services. After some debate and compromise, Congress passed the Women’s Armed Forces Integration Act July 28, 1948.

Whiting Field was once home to German POWs Throughout its distinguished history, first as an auxiliary air station and later as a naval air station, Whiting Field has taken great pride in its many accomplishments as well as in its role in preparing those who defend our nation. The installation’s steadfast mission remains the same now as it was during the fires of World War II – to support the training of the next generation of aviation warfighters. As NAS Whiting Field prepares to celebrate 75 years of that proud legacy, it is a perfect time to look back and remember significant moments and events that highlight the air station’s history. This is the second installment in a series to retell the past to our newest generation of service members. By Jay Cope NASWF Public Affairs Officer

D

uring the final months of World War II, Naval Auxiliary Air Station Whiting Field (NAASWF) continued to mold itself into one of the premiere aviation facilities in the United States. Ironically, names such as Pvt. Franz Gruber, Sgt. Erich Scherz, Pvt. Heinrich Pleuger and Pvt. Fritz Belitza were among the many men who played an important role in shaping the infrastructure that ensured the success of the fledgling airfield. Realizing the drastic need for manual labor to help complete the installation’s framework, begun only 15 months earlier, the Navy applied to the Army for assistance from their pool of German prisoners of war. The Army approved the transfer July 10, 1945 and just two days later, 19 soldiers from Fort Rucker, Ala. transferred to NAAS Whiting Field escorting 100 prisoners from 1470 SCU HQ Det. POW Camp. Under the command of Capt. Robert Fuller, USA, Det. #3, 1470 SCU was established at NAAS Whiting Field with the Army ensuring the administration and discipline of the prisoners while the Navy assumed responsibility for the food, bedding, living quarters, medical attendance and other items pertaining to health and welfare. The labor of the work details was supervised by the public works department. Food was considered of good quality, but maintained the lowest rations point values available in the Navy stores. Cooking was performed by the prisoners, under the supervision of Army personnel to ensure proper sanitation was maintained. The food was evidently tasty as a former Milton City Councilman remembered in a Santa Rosa Press Gazette story. A young Byron Stewart worked

construction on NAAS Whiting Field while it was being built, and eventually joined the Army. One of his responsibilities was to escort prisoners to New York for return to their homeland. In 1946 he returned to Milton to check on some of the prisoners there and what he remembered best was “the great pastry” made by the Germans. He commented that they could “take bologna and Vienna sausages and make better food than the Navy.” Stewart preferred to take meals with the Germans and never had any animosity toward the men. “They were just regular Army-drafted, just like us,” he said in the story. The site for the POW camp was near North Field and the first 100 prisoners reconstructed

four old contractors’ shacks to provide sleeping space and a galley and mess hall for the Germans. A small storage shed was renovated to create a space for a barber shop, canteen and reading room. A dispensary was established, using a 16-foot by 16-foot tent on site for the prisoners to ensure basic medical care was readily available. The first 100 prisoners performed the work that prepared the camp for the additional 125 German POWs who arrived less than one month later on Aug. 3, 1945. Each prisoner was provided with half of a

double-bunked bed, mattress, mattress cover, two blankets and a pillow. Work was undoubtedly hard and the living conditions somewhat primitive, but photos of the time show the Sailors attached to the installation had similar amenities. Work details of the time had the prisoners staffing projects such as access road and soil erosion, repairs to naval railroad, repairs to perimeter fencing, sodding ditches and grounds upkeep. The men performed infrastructure construction and maintenance that still services NAS Whiting Field today. It was not all work however, as former Navy gunner Julius Purvis recalls that on Sundays, one of the main forms of recreation was going to watch the POWs play sports. “The war was over, so we killed time when we could just playing cards or we would all go watch their soccer matches,” he said. Purvis remembers the soldiers as part of Gen. Erwin Rommel’s Africa Korps. The POWs worked their details during the day and were kept

within the confines of the POW camp at night. He said that it seemed a comfortable routine for the German soldiers. “They were reasonably happy to sit out the war there. It was a stable environment for them,” Purvis emphasized. “They were fed well, had medical care, and there were no troubles in the camp.” NAAS Whiting Field detached 122 German prisoners of war back to Camp Rucker March 18, 1946, and one week later released the remaining soldiers to their other duty stations. The men may have only been at the fledgling air station for about eight months, but they left a lasting impression according the Whiting files from 1946. “During their stay at Whiting, the prisoners relieved the service personnel of many of their jobs, such as erosion control, sodding of drainage ditches, small construction jobs, etc.,” the 1945 NAAS Whiting Field command history report noted. “Through their work and labor, Whiting made long strides toward becoming a permanent station.”

GOSPORT Solar eclipse viewing safety

The Great Eclipse of 2017

From https://eclipse2017. nasa.gov

Pensacola will have maximum coverage of 82 percent at 1:37 p.m.

The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses”or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight. Refer to the American Astronomical Society (AAS) reputable vendors of solar filters and viewers (https:// eclipse. aas.org/ resources/ solarfilters) page for a list of manufacturers and authorized dealers of eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers verified to be compliant with the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard for such products. Always supervise children using solar filters. Stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses or solar viewer before looking up at the bright sun. After looking at the sun, turn away and remove your filter – do not remove it while looking at the sun. Do not look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars or other optical device. Similarly, do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or handheld solar viewer – the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye(s), causing serious injury.

O

n Aug. 21, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s tenuous atmosphere – the corona – can be seen, will stretch from Lincoln Beach, Ore. to Charleston, S.C. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk. Who can see it? You can. Everyone in the contiguous United States, in fact, everyone in North America plus parts of South America, Africa and Europe will see at least a partial solar eclipse, while the thin path of totality will pass through portions of 14 states. What is it? This celestial event is a solar eclipse in which the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end, as viewed from a given location. For this eclipse, the longest period when the moon completely blocks the sun from any given location along the path will be about two minutes and 40 seconds. The last time the contiguous U.S. saw a total

eclipse was in 1979. How can you see it? You never want to look directly at the sun without appropriate protection except during totality. That could severely hurt your eyes. However, there are many ways to safely view an eclipse of the sun including direct viewing – which requires some type of filtering device and indirect viewing where you project an image of the sun onto a screen. Both methods should produce clear images of the partial phase of an eclipse. (See safety story at left.) Solar eclipse frequently asked questions (FAQ): • Why don’t solar eclipses occur exactly at noon? Because the geometry required for a total solar eclipse has nothing to do with local noon. It has to do with when the lunar shadow sweeps across your location during the time when the Sun is above the horizon. Even so, it is certainly possible for the sun to be in full eclipse before it rises at your particular location. • What is the earliest

Local astronomy group, the Escambia Amateur Astronomers Association (EAAA) will set up outside the Pensacola State College Planetarium, clear skies permitting, for public viewing and photographing the partial eclipse.

recorded total solar eclipse? Historians and astronomers believe that the legendary eclipse that two Chinese astrologers Hsi and Ho failed to forecast occurred Oct. 22, 2134 B.C.E. making it the oldest solar eclipse ever recorded in human history. The Babylonian eclipse May 3, 1375 B.C.E. is the oldest successfully predicted and recorded in the western world, and there is evidence that the Babylonians knew about the Saros Cycle (18 years 11 days) and could use it to predict the approximate years of eclipses. • How can I photograph a total solar eclipse? You will need to pur-

Gosling Games Color Me ‘Jupiter’

chase a solar filter that will reduce the brightness of the sun so that the light intensity does not destroy your camera. If you only take a photo at the moment of totality, you will not need this filter and will be rewarded by being able to photograph the faint corona, which will not be visible if you have the filter in place. Most digital cameras with telephoto lenses of 100 mm or larger will show a disk for the eclipse that will show some detail. • What are “shadow bands?” These are among the most ephemeral phenomena that observers see during the few minutes before and after a total solar

eclipse. They appear as a multitude of faint rapidly moving bands that can be seen by placing a white sheet of paper several feet square on the ground. They look like ripples of sunshine at the bottom of a swimming pool and their visibility varies from eclipse to eclipse. (Editor’s note – I was in Pensacola for the solar eclipse of May 30, 1984. When the Aug. 21 eclipse occurs, take notice of the shadows around you. In 1984, anything the sunlight went through turned into little crescent shadows ... dappled sunlight on a sidewalk coming through the trees became a thousand little halfmoons. It is worth seeing.)

The Pensacola Cultural Center (PCC) proudly presents their premiere artist in residence Nina Fritz with an opening reception to be held Aug. 25 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. PCC will open a unique exhibition featuring this local award-winning artist. The exhibit will feature more than 20 works by Fritz, including her highly regarded portraits. She will also be creating a live portrait impression during the event and her works will be available for purchase with a portion of proceeds benefitting PCC. Fritz’s love of painting blossomed after a lifetime of artistry. Her studies have taken her to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Silvermine Art School in Connecticut and Pennsylvania Academy of Art, as well as around the world from early experiences in Japan to more recent trips in France, Italy and Spain. She enjoys membership in several organizations, namely a charter membership of the Portrait Society of America and Oil Painters of America. Along with a friend, she founded Pensacola Plein Air Artists. In 2011, Fritz was commissioned by Network News in New York to be the courtroom artist for the federal healthcare bill oral arguments held in Pensacola. She got a huge thumbsup from the managing editor for her work covering the hearings. Her images were shown nationwide on all major networks, including ABC, CBS and Fox

This painting by Nina Fritz features the Blue Angel F/A-18 Hornets and the Blue Angels’ C-130 Hercules “Fat Albert.” Photo courtesy of Pensacola Cultural Center

News Network as well as distributed to local news affiliates. A profound experience of note is the acclaim received by Fritz for her portrait of Las Infantas, the young princesses of Spain. Received personally by the royal family, the painting now hangs in the Madrid palace. Fritz makes her home in Pensacola with her husband Norman and seldom lets a day go by without painting.

Fritz’s works will be up for display and available for viewing after the opening reception during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and on select gallery nights. Some exhibition date exceptions will apply. The reception will boast complimentary wine and mingling with the artist and is free and open to the public. For more information, call 4340257.
