NATTC instructor named top AO in the Navy From Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Public Affairs

A Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) instructor was named the 2016 John W. Finn Aviation Ordnanceman of the Year Aug. 15. AOC (select) Amanda J. Roth, NATTC’s Aviation Ordnanceman “A” School leading petty officer, was recognized by the Association of Aviation Ordnancemen as the top AO in the Navy, something she said is both an honor and privilege. “Aviation ordnancemen share a great history and heritage, and to be named one of the best of these shipmates is an extraordinary honor,” she said, “but all the Sailors with whom I’ve worked and led, all the chiefs who’ve mentored and trained me, are the reason I am where I am.” The award, named for former Navy ordnance-

departmental and subsequent command nomination, including a review of the service member’s records and impact they have had on the AO rating.

700 military children earn DeCA scholarships From Defense Commissary Agency

FORT LEE, Va.– Seven hundred students from military families each received a $2,000 scholarship this year thanks to the 2016 Scholarships for Military Children program. Recipients from Navy commissaries in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties include Michael Hopko, Brianna McKinzie, Baillier Padden and Marygrace Ruiz at NAS Pensacola and Lacey Littleton at NAS Whiting Field. The NASP program was sponsored by Seald Sweet International and the NASWF program was sponsored by Unilever. Recipients at the Hurlburt Field commissary included Kyle Marocchini, Bethany McKinney, James Phillips and Katherine Sartz. The sponsor of the program was Overseas Service Corporation. The recipients at the Eglin Air Force Base commissary included Nolan Arenz, Keara Bogart, Rebecca Cathey, William Easley, Regan McAllister, Carson Wilber and Megan Wood. The sponsor was Fisher House Foundation. The program, created in 2001, recognizes the contributions of military families to the readiness of the fighting force and celebrates the commissary’s role in enhancing military quality of life. The program is administered by Fisher

House Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to service members and their families. “With a 13 percent increase in applications this year, the program was even more selective than in the past,” said Fisher House Foundation Vice President Jim Weiskopf. “In addition to recognizing the scholastic achievements of the 700 recipients, we owe special appreciation to the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) business partners whose donations each year make the scholarship program possible.” No government funds are used to support the program. DeCA’s industry partners – vendors, manufacturers, brokers, suppliers – and the general public donate money to fund the program, and every dollar donated goes directly to funding the scholarships. The contributions go to Fisher House Foundation Inc., which treats each as a “restricted donation.” The foundation in turn contracts with Scholarship Managers, a professional scholarship management firm, to evaluate the applications and select the best qualified as awardees. In all, there were 4,513 qualified applicants this time around. “I’m always impressed with the creativity and dedication to the pursuit of See DeCA on page 2

Roth, according to NATTC AO “A” School Course Supervisor AOC Hector Mendez, epitomizes what an aviation ordnanceman should em-

body, and has proven instrumental in ensuring the next generation of AOs are more than prepared for duty in the Navy and Marine Corps. “Chief (select) Roth has been the driving force in ensuring the students passing through our doors are ready for the jobs they will do in the fleet,” he said. “She’s a deckplate leader, and she makes sure these students are instilled with AO pride and professionalism while reinforcing the Navy core values.” While initially an instructor, Roth later transitioned to an administrative role, coordinating more than 30 Navy and Marine Corps instructors in training and mentoring nearly 3,000 students. Roth also became instrumental in the planning, development, realignment and implementation of the AO “A” School curriculum revision, eliminating unnecessary and redundant coursework and reducing

required training time by more than a week. Roth also serves as a master training specialist mentor, the NATTC Navy Junior ROTC (NJROTC) assistant coordinator and as a NATTC Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) victim advocate. Roth also is involved in the Pensacola community, particularly with Blue Angels Elementary School, where she is a member of the school advisory committee. She also serves as the Drug Education for Youth (DEFY) staff administrator and is a member of the Association of Aviation Ordnancemen, Chapter 34. NATTC Commanding Officer Capt. Hugh Rankin said Roth’s unparalleled leadership and mentoring is helping to shape the AO rating. “Her imprint of leadership and mentorship is See AO on page 2

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,

Moving experience: Box makes a good end table By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I

n the military, a permanent change of station, or PCS move, is a lot like childbirth – no matter how painful it is, you always think it will get easier the next time around. And it never does. At least childbirth leaves you with a little bundle of joy at the end of it all, but your consolation prize for enduring the pain and suffering of PCSing, is a bundle of boxes to unpack. Oh, joy. To make matters worse, there is always someone who PCSed about the same time as you, who somehow manages to get their place fully and fashionably decorated and box-free in two weeks or less. You, however, spend six months with picture frames lining the baseboards, because no one has gotten around to putting nails in the walls. Your son wonders if you will ever unpack the box that has his favorite Legos in it. Your husband gave up on

finding his golf shoes two months ago. The cat is ticked that her scratching post is still somewhere in the garage. With all the other day-today responsibilities you have as a military spouse, how on earth can you be expected to fully unpack and redecorate every few years without totally losing your mind. She slumps onto the couch, and reaches for her coffee, which is on the cardboard box she has been using as an end table since last month. Sigh. In 23 years of being a Navy wife, I, too, have lost my mind while moving. But I have also found a few things in the process. No, I’m not talking about that old orange, red and black afghan Aunt Millie

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for more than 20 years.

I am not referencing the “Godfather II” VHS tape that we accused the movers of swiping on our claim form back in 1998. Anyone have a VCR we can borrow? Sure, I have found a few long lost objects while unpacking, but I’m really talking about finding initiative, resourcefulness, ingenuity and creativity. From the cavemen of ancient times to the hipsters of today, all human beings have an instinct to seek shelter. Even my husband, Francis, who actually has enough body hair to qualify him as a primate, prefers to live in a house rather than in the wild. But I digress … Military families seek shelter too, but we know that every home is temporary, so why do we bother to unpack at all? Uncle Sam is only going to tell us to pack it back up and do it all over again. And again. And again.

Here’s why: Military spouses know that it is important for our families to feel at home, so whether it takes two weeks or six months, we will unpack the family belongings and start making memories. What I discovered while losing my mind is that military spouses are resourceful enough to make any place feel like home – be it an offbase split-level in Texas, an on-base townhouse in Kentucky, a seaside shack in Hawaii, a high-rise apartment in Japan, or a stairwell house in Germany. We are creative enough to repurpose our belongings to fit new spaces. We are flexible enough to adapt to a vast array of home sizes, layouts, and environments. And we are ingenious enough to turn a cardboard box into a damned good end table. After every PCS move, military families might spend a lot of time surrounded by cardboard boxes. But when it comes to making a home for their families, military spouses truly know how to think outside of the box.

Navy announces elimination of NWU Type I From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – the Navy announced in NavAdmin174/16 that it will transition from the Navy Working Uniform (NWU) Type I to the NWU Type III as the service’s primary shore working uniform beginning Oct. 1, 2016. During the next three years, Sailors may wear either the NWU Type I or III, but effective Oct. 1, 2019, all Sailors will be expected to wear the NWU Type III as their primary working uniform when ashore or in port. While the Navy is developing an incremental regional fielding plan for the NWU Type III, this transition period will give Sailors time to prepare for the change and allow them to get maximum wear out of recently purchased NWU Type I uniforms. “As the CNO and I travel to see Sailors deployed around the world, one of the issues they consistently want to talk about are uniforms,” said Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. “They want uniforms that are lightweight, comfortable, breathable ... and they want fewer of them. We have heard the feedback and we are acting on it. As a direct result of Sailors’ input, effective Oct. 1, we will transition from the NWU Type I to the NWU Type III as our primary shore working uniform.”

This change is the first step in a multi-phased process that will streamline and consolidate the Navy’s uniform requirements, and ultimately improve uniformity across the force. The Navy has listened to Sailors’ feedback and is incorporating their desires to have a working uniform that is better fitting, more breathable and lighter weight. NWU Type III will be issued to new accessions and recruits beginning Oct. 1, 2017. Until further policy guidance is promulgated, black boots will be the standard boot worn in the United States and its territories with the NWU Type III. However, expeditionary forces in the United States or any forward deployed forces may wear the desert tan or coyote brown boots at the discretion of the unit commanding officer with the NWU Type III. Additionally, Sailors may wear the NWU Type I black fleece liner. Sailors will be able to buy NWU Type III components for personal wear through Navy

Exchange uniform stores and call centers once there is sufficient inventory on hand. U.S. Fleet Forces Command (FFC) continues its multi-phase wear test of improved flame resistant variant (IFRV) working uniform components, for shipboard wear. FFC most recently conducted in-depth groups focus with fleet Sailors aimed at refining the design of the IFRV coverall. Additional feedback from the focus groups, subsequently validated by a senior level working group, resulted in the preliminary design of a more professional looking two-piece utility shipboard uniform that can be worn both at sea and operational support jobs ashore. Wear tests of the prototype twopiece variants are expected to occur in 2017. Also announced in NavAdmin 174/16: • The Navy will transition to the black Cold Weather Parka (CWP) starting Oct. 1, 2018, as outerwear with the Service and Service Dress Uniform. Navy All Weather Coat, Pea Coat and Reefer coat will become optional items.

Mandatory wear date for the parka is Oct. 1, 2020. • Women, E-7 and above, are now authorized to wear men’s uniform khaki pants without the belt and buckle with the khaki over blouse. Gig-line issues prevent wear of the male slacks with the tuckin shirt. • The rollout date of the male Service Dress Blue uniform at Recruit Training Command been has moved to Oct. 1, 2017, due to manufacturing delays. This change also aligns the uniform release with the introduction of the new E-1 – E-6 Service Dress Whites. • Navy sweat shirt and pants logo has been replaced with silver reflective letter“NAVY,” ing which is similar to the logo on the Physical Navy Training Uniform shirt and shorts. The sweatshirt and pants are now available for purchase at Navy Exchange uniform centers. • Commands may now au-

thorize the wear of a “Don’t Tread on Me” and Reverse U.S. Flag patches on NWU Type II and Type III. • Approval for the replacement of the Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewman (SWCC) insignia. Going forward, there will be three separate insignias to denote a Sailor’s specific qualification level, which are SWCC basic, SWCC senior and SWCC master. The implementation date is today, Aug. 19, with a mandatory wear date of Oct. 1, 2016. • The Navy Uniform Matters Office is in the process of redesigning their website to enhance the dissemination and information regarding recent uniform changes. The site is expected to be running in the coming months. The Navy continues to conduct a wear test of new women’s khaki pants and is developing options to improve the sizing of women’s khaki pants for E-7 and above. It’s expected that the new women’s khaki pants will be available for purchase in late 2017 or early 2018. Enlisted clothing replacement allowance will be adjusted to cover costs of these uniform changes and requirements. However, by law, comofficers are missioned currently entitled to a one-time uniform stipend ($400), paid at the beginning of their careers. An additional stipend cannot be granted without a change in law. NavAdmin 74/16 contains more detail on the uniform changes and can be found at www.npc.navy.mil.

SIANC-NCS fosters partnerships among inter-American navies By Lt. j.g J. Schmitz U.S. Fleet Forces Command Public Affairs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) – Naval officers from eight countries joined U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFFC) members at Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville last week for the Specialized Inter-American Naval Conference on Naval Control of Shipping (SIANC-NCS). The conference is an off-set of the bi-annual Inter-American Naval Conferences (IANC) and is usually held at rotating host nations every other year. This year marks the first time in more than 12 years the United States has hosted the conference, which first convened in 1959. NAS Jacksonville was selected due to its importance to the U.S. Navy, waterway

shipping and all that it offers as a destination conference city. The conference underscores the U.S. Navy’s position as a key contributor to interAmerican shipping as well as the value the Navy places on its productive maritime partnerships. “The conference has been great in preparing us for future actions together towards a common set of goals,” said Capt. Juan Ricardo Rozo of the Colombian Navy. This year’s conference focused on those common goals, sharing knowledge, exchanging ideas, and developing insights among each country’s navy and moving towards greater hemispheric solidarity. In addition to the U.S., navies represented included those of Ar-

gentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. During the course of the week, each attending nation delivered a presentation focused on this year’s theme “Exchanging Information to Strengthen Partnerships.” “The most important thing for our navy is the reliability of our friends,” said Capt. Jesus Lopez Vallejo of Mexico. Rear Adm. Chris Sadler, USFFC reserve deputy director of maritime operations and Rear Adm. Mary Jackson, commander Navy Region Southeast, served as the senior U.S. Navy representatives. The delegates were also engaged in non-conference activities includ-

ing a static display of a P-8A Poseidon attached to the “War Eagles” of Patrol Squadron 16 (VP-16), golf and American hot dogs at a Jacksonville Suns baseball game. An all-reservist team produced the conference, as a showcase of Navy Reserve talent and in keeping with the Navy Reserve’s management of naval control of shipping. At the end of the conference, attendees reaffirmed partnerships in the interest of future functionality amongst shared aims. “There’s an old saying that trust cannot be surged,” said Sadler.

SecNav Mabus names destroyer for Marine Medal of Honor recipient From Secretary of the Navy Public Affairs

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – In a recent ceremony at Marine Barracks in Washington, D.C., Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced Arleigh-Burke class destroyer, DDG 124, will be named Harvey C. Barnum Jr. in honor of the retired U.S. Marine Corps colonel who received the Medal of Honor for valor during the Vietnam War. Barnum also served as deputy assistant secretary of the Navy for reserve affairs and spoke at the ceremony. “It is a great honor to name this ship in recognition of Col. Barnum,” said Mabus. “I have no doubt that all who serve aboard her will carry on the legacy of service and commitment exemplified by this Marine Corps hero.” This is the sixth ship Mabus has named honoring a Medal of Honor recipient. Others have included John Finn (DDG 113), Ralph Johnson (DDG 114), Thomas Hudner (DDG 116), Daniel Inouye (DDG 118) and Woody Williams (T-ESB 4). Arleigh-Burke class destroyers conduct a variety of operations from peacetime presence and crisis response to sea control and power projection. DDG 124 will be capable of fighting air, surface and subsurface battles simultaneously and will contain a

combination of offensive and defensive weapon systems designed to support maritime warfare, including integrated air and missile defense and vertical launch capabilities. The ship will be constructed at Bath Iron Works, a division of General Dynamics, in Maine and is expected to enter the Navy fleet in 2024. The ship will be 509 feet long, have a beam length of 59 feet and be capable of operating at speeds in excess of 30 knots. Additional information about the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers is available online at http://www. navy. mil/ local/ DDG/.

Barnum’s actions changed course of Vietnam battle From http://www.cmohs.org/

Medal of Honor citation: “For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. When the company was suddenly pinned down by a hail of extremely accurate enemy fire and was quickly separated from the remainder of the battalion by over 500 meters of open and fire-swept ground, and casualties mounted rapidly. Lt. Barnum quickly made a hazardous reconnaissance of the area, seeking targets for his artillery. “Finding the rifle company commander mortally wounded and the radio operator killed, he, with complete disregard for his safety, gave aid to the dying commander, then removed the radio from the dead operator and strapped it to himself.

“He immediately assumed command of the rifle company, and moving at once into the midst of the heavy fire, rallying and giving encouragement to all units, reorganized them to replace the loss of key personnel and led their attack on enemy positions from which deadly fire continued to come. His sound and swift decisions and his obvious calm served to stabilize the badly decimated units ... he moved fearlessly through enemy fire to control the air attack against the firmly entrenched enemy while skillfully directing one platoon in a successful counterattack on the key enemy positions ... “His gallant initiative and heroic conduct reflected great credit upon himself and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the U.S. naval service.”

NASWF announces Sailors of the Quarter Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Marissa Tungjunyatham NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

T

he aviation boatswain’s mates of the NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) airfield management team earned a clean sweep for NASWF’s recent recognition of the third quarter of fiscal year 2016’s Sailors of the Quarter (SoQs). These Sailors were chosen to represent the command as its top enlisted personnel and set the example for their peers. AB1 Jesus Cervantes, AB2 Mairim Torresperez, and AB3 Iannino Divad were selected for Senior SoQ, Junior SoQ and Bluejacket of the Quarter (BJoQ), respectively. Representatives from each of NAS Whiting Field’s divisions were present for board consideration. Cervantes was awarded Senior SoQ by demonstrating superior leadership ability, working tirelessly on his primary duty as the Airfield Services Division leading petty officer (LPO) and his collateral duties as command lead assistant urinalysis coordinator (UPC), command assistant muster team leader, operations department mentorship coordinator, First Class Petty Officer Association (FCPOA) secretary, and CPO365 training first class petty officer team leader. As the airfield services division LPO, he wrote the schedule and ran the work center. He supervised and trained 12 Sailors and six civilians in every aspect of airfield safety and ensured that two primary airfields and 12 Navy Outlying Landing Fields (NOLFs) were safe for flight operations. His leadership directly impacted NAS Whiting Field’s airfield readiness in support of Training Air Wing Five’s (TraWing-5’s) operations, resulting in uninterrupted operations of airfields, and resulting 200,000 flight operations. His work as NAS Whiting Field’s lead assistant UPC was flawless. He ensured the collection and processing of 257 urine samples at the command with zero reporting discrepancies in support of the Navy’s zero tolerance policy. As the assistant muster team leader, he led 10 Sailors in accounting for all staff after holiday weekends and when directed by higher authority. His leadership ensured the safety and well-being of his shipmates. Being the CPO365 FCPO team leader required a lot of responsibility, but Cervantes championed the program, motivated his peers, and coordinated events and training schedules. On top of that, his peers chose him to be the FCPOA secretary, which he handled all administrative aspects of the organization and documented meeting minutes diligently and professionally. “He’s reliable, self-starting and motivating,� said his supervisor ABC Alejandro Zimmerle, airfield management leading chief petty officer, “He holds a lot of heavyhitting collateral duties. A normal first class would break, but Cervantes has proven himself to be successful. We’re very happy to have him. He’s met and exceeded every-

thing he could possibly do here.� In addition, Cervantes volunteered a great deal of his off-duty hours as a motivated community leader and mentor. He led and coordinated the NAS Whiting Field Children’s Easter Egg Hunt, which more than 500 Sailors, civilians and their families attended. He also personally volunteered more than 20 hours to various community events including helping out the East Milton Elementary Book Fair, the Milton Food Bank and the Black River Clean-up. Cervantes explained that the competition was hard, and it was not easy to select Senior Sailor of the Quarter. He felt honored to receive that recognition, even just to be nominated. “I just want to thank my chain of command and my department,� Cervantes said. “It’s a great honor to represent the command, and I wouldn’t be here without them. I wouldn’t be here without my Sailors.� Torresperez was awarded the Junior SoQ for her immaculate performance and dedicated work ethic as the E28 divisional LPO, assistant UPC, command “Chart the Course� facilitator, departmental sponsor petty officer, command muster team assistant leader, divisional repairs parts petty officer (RPPO), divisional assistant maintenance and material management work center supervisor (3M WCS), and divisional assistant metrology and calibration petty officer (METCAL PO). Regarded as an impeccable divisional LPO, she assisted her team of Sailors in the on-time installation and successful certification of NOLF Choctaw’s E-28 arresting gear. Additionally, she supervised the Improved Fresnel Lens Optical Landing System (IFLOLS) maintenance actions and operational testing. With both sets of equipment now certified, NAS Whiting Field is fully qualified to support the high visibility F-35 field carrier landing procedures flight operations, resulting in the safe and mishap free environment for more than 400 TraWing-5 flight op-

erations and 130 Joint Strike Fighter F-35 field carrier landing practice operations. Furthermore, Torresperez has the upmost confidence of her superiors to lead and manage all responsibilities of the E-28 Arresting Gear Division. She flawlessly created and executed the E-28 and IFLOLS installation and certification maintenance schedule, which led to the successful on-time equipment recertification. Her precise planning identified the pertinent parts and tools needed to maintain the recently installed equipment, accounting for more than $13,800 in materials. That attention to detail was critical in identifying a damaged Keensert bolt thread repair fittings installed by a government contractor, resulting in on-time corrective repairs and final construction approval by the Navy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the backbone of everything,â&#x20AC;? her supervisor Cervantes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been placed in a leadership position recently and she is exceeding all my expectations.â&#x20AC;? Torresperez worked with Cervantes as the assistant UPC and her meticulous actions led to the testing and collection of 250 command personnel samples and ensured strict adherence to government instruction. When she was awarded Junior SoQ, Torresperez was excited and honored. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be where I am at this point in my career, and I have my chain of command to thank for that. My advice (to others) would to volunteer to do things, not to make yourself shine, but to help out the command and be a team player.â&#x20AC;? Divad received the Bluejacket of the Quarter for his exceptionally high level of technical expertise as an airfield specialist and his diligent work as the airfield services training petty officer. As the airfield specialist, he ensured that NAS Whiting Fieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two primary airfields and 12 OLFs were safe for flight operations. He personally performed 68 airfield inspections on four active fixed-wing runways, taxiways, and parking aprons and conducted 72 airfield checks on 67 helicopter pads and 38 helicopter spots. In addition, he responded to 30 in-flight and ground emergencies, making sure reportable damages were identified and reported. Divad was recognized as an expert for his technical knowledge, personal diligence and attention to detail, which was instrumental in identifying and correction 90 airfield hazards, minimizing aircraft mishaps. As the airfield specialist training petty officer, he maintained 10 active-duty Sailorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and six civiliansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; training folders and ensured all formal training is filed, documented, and recorded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the perfect definition of a junior Sailor,â&#x20AC;? Cervantes said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always eager to jump at any task and always looks for a more efficient way to do it.â&#x20AC;? Outside of his present duties, Divad was selected by his peers to be the public affairs officer for the Junior Enlisted Association (JEA), in which he kept the command and visitors to their social media page updated with all of their current events and upcoming JEA functions. Furthermore, Divad also dedicated much of his off-duty time to the community. To the Sailors competing for the next SoQ, Cervantes advised, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every day, come to work with a smile and try harder each week to make the command better. Just work for your Sailors. The more you work for them, the better theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make you in the end.â&#x20AC;?

Swim with the lifeguards.

Check for the latest surf advisory at Pensacola Beach and the Gulf Islands National Seashore in the protected areas, and heed the color of warning flags flown at beach entrance and at all lifeguard stations. Absence of flags does not assure safe water. Rip currents and rapidly changing weather conditions can create dangerous situations if you are unprepared. It’s always safest to swim where lifeguards are present. And never swim alone. • Double red: Water closed to public. • Red: High hazard, high surf and/or strong currents. • Yellow: Medium hazard, moderate surf and/or currents.

American Red Cross water safety advice Boating safety begins with a plan • Alcohol and boating don’t mix. Alcohol impairs your judgment, balance and coordination — more than 50 percent of drownings result from boating incidents involving alcohol. For the same reasons it is dangerous to operate an automobile while under the influence of alcohol, people should not operate a boat while drinking alcohol. • Look for the label. Use Coast Guard-approved life jackets for yourself and your passengers when boating and fishing. • Develop a float plan. Anytime you go out in a

boat, give a responsible person details about where you will be and how long you will be gone. This is important because if the boat is delayed because of an emergency, becomes lost, or encounters other problems, you want help to be able to reach you. • Find a boating course in your area. These courses teach about navigation rules, emergency procedures and the effects of wind, water conditions and weather. • Watch the weather. Know local weather conditions and prepare for electrical storms.

Rip currents are narrow channels of water flowing out past the surf zone that can pull even strong swimmers into deep water beyond the offshore sand bar. If caught in a rip current, do not panic. Try to escape a rip current by moving sideways across it; that is, parallel to the shore. If the current is too strong, let it carry you farther away from shore and it will weaken. Then swim back to shore at an angle away from the rip current. If an emergency occurs in an area not covered by a lifeguard, call 911.

Hydrate; use sun screen for summer’s last rays • Protect your skin: Sunlight contains two kinds of UV rays – UVA increases the risk of skin cancer, skin aging and other skin diseases. UVB causes sunburn and can also lead to skin cancer. Limit the amount of direct sunlight you receive between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15. • Drink plenty of water regularly and often even if you do not feel thirsty. Your body needs water to keep cool. • Avoid drinks with alcohol or caffeine in them. They can make you feel good briefly but make the heat’s effects on your body worse. This is especially true with beer, which dehydrates the body. • Watch for signs of heat stroke:

Gosling Games Color Me ‘Shells’

Heat stroke is life-threatening. The person’s temperature control system, which produces sweating to cool the body, stops working. Signals of heat stroke include – hot, red and usually dry skin, but in some cases such as during athletic activity while wearing a helmet, the skin may be moist. Other signs are changes in consciousness, rapid, weak pulse, and rapid, shallow breathing. Call 9-1-1 or your local EMS number. • Wear eye protection. Be sure to wear sunglasses with labels that indicate that they absorb at least 90 percent of UV sunlight. • Wear foot protection. Many times, people’s feet can get burned from the sand or cut from glass in the sand.

Jokes & Groaners Points to ponder Why does sour cream have an expiration date? Does the reverse side also have a reverse side? Tell a man that there are 400 billion stars and he’ll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint and he has to touch it. How come Superman could stop bullets with his chest, but always ducked when someone threw a gun at him? Why is lemon juice mostly artificial ingredients but dishwashing liquid contains real lemons? If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes? Why do we drive on parkways, and park on driveways? Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii? Why do they put braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM?

CIWT selected Frank Palmer, assigned to CIWT’s Chief Information Office Directorate, as Senior-Grade CoQ; and Donald Watts, a test specialist for the Navy Foreign Language Testing Program assigned to Center for Language, Regional Expertise and Culture (CLREC), as its Mid-Grade CoQ. During the second quarter, Palmer served as cyberspace information technology and cyber security workforce program manager and command message

administrator. He provided training and assistance to subordinate command message administrators on specific message traffic configuration details for the latest encryption of “For Official Use Only” messages, ensuring no loss of message traffic.

ing across the CIWT enterprise.” Palmer said it was an honor to be recognized by his peers for the hard work he accomplished and wished to congratulate all the other nominees. Watts devoted numerous hours validating and developing CLREC foreign language testing data to support critical and timesensitive NETC Navy College

Office closure briefings and meetings. He built a matrix, flowcharts and spreadsheets which detailed past requirements and profiled three potential future courses of action, completing tasks normally assigned to senior personnel in order to ensure mission success. Christopher Wise, director for CLREC, said he can always rely on Watts to provide excellent customer service, and his conscientious and timely work in validating language test scores ensures Sailors' foreign language proficiency is accurately captured. “I support my command and division to the best of my ability and impart my knowledge and expertise, as embedded in me as a retired Navy chief,” said Watts. “Being recognized as the CIWT Civilian of the Quarter shows recognition (has) not gone unnoticed by your superiors.” Center for Information Warfare Training delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

Cyclists to compete in three-stage race Sept. 10-11 From Subway Pensacola Cycling Classic

T

he seventh annual Subway Pensacola Cycling Classic will welcome more than 300 cyclists to the Pensacola Bay area the weekend of Sept. 10-11.

Regional pros, top amateur cyclists and hand-cyclists will race Sept. 10 and Sept. 11 in a three-stage event for more than $16,000 in prize money. “The future of professional cycling in Pensacola has never been better,” said Tim Fox, race director. “We welcome the nation’s top cyclists to come down and join the competition in Pensacola along the world’s whitest beaches.” The three stages include a three-mile time trial on Pensacola Beach the morning of Sept. 10, followed by a road race in the Blackwater River State Forest

north of Milton in the afternoon. The Criterium will take place Sept. 11 in downtown Pensacola starting at 8 a.m. The Criterium — a spectator favorite best described as “NASCAR on bikes” — includes multiple laps on a confined route in downtown Pensacola about one mile in length. Prize money is available for top finishers in each stage and the overall winners who have the fastest combined times. There are many categories competing, including the top levels of pro to the “beginner” category. In addition, hand-cy-

clists from around the world, including more than 40 members of the Paralyzed Veterans of America Racing Team, also will be competing. The Paralyzed Veterans of America is the designated charity for this year. In 2015, the Subway Pensacola Cycling Classic was able to give $2,000 to the PVA organization. “We are incredibly honored and in-

spired to have so many paralyzed veterans competing in this competition. The Subway Pensacola Cycling Classic gladly supports the PVA cause,” Fox said. A free Kids Fun Race (10 and younger) will also take place Sept. 11 in downtown Pensacola. Each child participating will receive a raffle ticket for the chance to win a new bike. Deadline to sign up for the Kids Fun Race is by 9 a.m. at Government and Jefferson street intersection. Bike and helmet are required to participate. The distance will be one lap, or approximately .75-mile. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded to the top three finishers. Admission for spectators is free.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
