NAS Pensacola Corry Station’s Chiefs Mess and chief petty officer (CPO) selectees joined forces with Pensacola Habitat for Humanity for a landscaping project on three homes in south Santa Rosa County Aug. 15. Fifty-five volunteers from the Center for Information Dominance (CID) headquarters, CID Unit NASP Corry Station, and Navy Information Operations Command (NIOC) Pensacola worked together to provide families with better yards around newly built homes. The work involved preparing lawns and laying down 60 pallets of sod. The current and future chiefs offered their time as part of phase two of CPO 365, a yearround training initiative that chiefs’ messes throughout the Navy take on to prepare first class petty officers to become chiefs. Phase two of CPO 365 begins when the chief petty officer selection board results are released, which occurred Aug. 5. The roughly six-week process is designed to foster teamwork and resilience, as well as hone leadership skills. “It is always good to not only serve our country but also the local community,” said ITCS(IDW/SW/AW) Demetrius Farrie, information systems technician training manager for CID headquarters. “Every year we ensure our newly selected chief petty officers are focused on our heritage and giving back to their local community.” Stephen Foxworth, Habitat for Humanity

All veterans of World War II are invited to attend a ceremony honoring their service to the United States. The event, part of the nation’s commemoration of the war’s conclusion 70 years ago, will be presented at 6 p.m. Aug. 27 at Veterans Memorial Park. The main speaker will be retired Col. Donald Carmichael, an Army veteran who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Carmichael, who lives in Loxley, Ala., fought from Normandy to the Elbe as part of his service in World War II. During the Korean conflict, he served in the Chorwon and Kumwah valleys and he was deputy commander of a task force in Vietnam in 1967-68. Carmichael entered the Army as a private and retired as a colonel. The gathering is free and open to the public. Water and light food will be provided; people should bring their own chairs or blankets. In case of rain, the event will be moved to Rosie O’Grady’s at Seville Quarter. Heroes Among Us is a monthly series that salutes Northwest Florida residents from all branches of military service. The speaker series is organized by members of the Marine Corps League, J.R. Spears Detachment 066, to support Marines In Distress, a MCL veterans assistance fund established to provide immediate financial grants to veterans in need. Since the beginning of the speaker series in 2013, the organization has collected $45,000 in donations for the fund. Other 2015 speaker series events include: • Sept. 24 - Special Operations and sniper night. • Oct. 29 - Khe Sanh night.

Most of the personnel have been reassigned to other bases and units, Barnes said. Some of them have moved to NASP’s 479th Flying Training Group (FTG). The 66th TRS is comprised of two subordinate detachments. The 66th TRS Det. 1, located at Eielson AFB in Alaska, teaches arctic survival skills. The 66th TRS Det. 2 has been located at NASP teaching parachute water survival. Unit history: Det. 2 traces its origins to the 17th Training Squadron. Formal water survival training (sea survival school) was originally started by Tactical Air Command at Langley AFB in 1962, and moved to Homestead AFB in 1966. The United States Air Force Water Survival School became fully operational in July 1971, replacing schools in Okinawa, Japan and Northwest Florida. In July 1971, formal USAF survival training was consolidated under Air Training Command, and the United States Air Force Water Survival School, the 3613th Combat Crew Training Squadron, was formed at Homestead AFB. In August 1992, the 3613th Combat Crew Training Squadron relocated to Tyndall AFB following heavy damage Corry volunteers from page 1

The unit resumed training in December 1992, before being re-designated as the 17th Crew Training Squadron in January 1993, and then as the 17th Training Squadron in April 1994. In June 1994, the 17th Training Squadron relocated to NASP, resuming training in July. It was redesignated in December 1996 as Detachment 2, 66th Training Squadron, under the 336th Training Group. The school was tasked with ensuring each student was prepared to survive an ejection or bailout at sea through realistic training. Lessons included parachuting into water, survival equipment, search and rescue tactics, techniques, and procedures, medical and psychological aspects of sea survival, sustenance and hazardous marine life. These lessons culminated by, under controlled conditions, placing students in situations similar to what they would encounter in an actual aircraft emergency. This included extended living in aircraft specific life rafts, multiple parasails, parachute drag and canopy disentanglement techniques, and helicopter hoist and recovery procedures. Students were able to witness the efficiency and reliability of their equipment through demonstrations of the B22Z emergency parachute system by detachment staff.

Records on Navy photographer tell remarkable story By Emily Martin U.S. Naval Institute photo researcher

During my first summer at U.S. Naval Institute (USNI) as photo researcher, I made a friend. Actually, this friend does not work here or anywhere else. His name is Frank H. Wilson, a chief photographer for the U.S. Navy. Incidentally he served from 1911 to 1945. So yes, he is no longer with us, but he does live on in our archives. While looking through the many photo albums and scrapbooks in the archives, I noticed several were the property of one Frank H. Wilson. The albums, donated in the 1980s by retired Navy YNC M.T. Wandell, were numerous. The search was on to see if I could discover who this mysterious Frank H. Wilson was before his photo albums arrived at USNI, and how the donor came to possess his albums. Working for the U.S. Naval Institute brings with it contacts in the military history field. The editor-in-chief of Naval History, Richard Latture, was lucky enough to have a contact at the National Archives (NARA) with the Navy/Maritime Reference Department who very gladly provided me the e-mail of an archivist work-

ing for NARA in St. Louis, where the service record books are stored. All I had was a name and a few dates from the albums, which placed his service during the 1920s. I compiled a short outline based on captions and other information written in the photo albums. Wilson served as part of the camera crew with the U.S. Navy during the 1920s. According to the first archivist I spoke with, being part of the camera crew would have made him an officer. Wilson primarily served on the USS New Mexico, traveling to Alaska and Canada in July-August 1920, Hawaii in September 1920 followed by Panama and Chile in 1921. He was part of the Aerial Mapping Class NAS Pensacola, 1926. He traveled again to Panama and Haiti in 1926-1927 and the

last album dated 1928 has him in Hawaii and California. I figured with this limited information it would take months for anyone in St. Louis to help, but after almost three years here I have learned to be surprised at nothing. No sooner did I send my e-mail than the wonderful archivist replied saying she found the record book and could send me a copy. I anticipated its arrival, hardly believing I would actually get a chance to read it. It arrived and to say it would be a quick read would be a vast understatement. It weighed at least five pounds and was a good five inches thick.

What I discovered while reading it in reverse chronological order was remarkable. There is a record of a common-law marriage that ended when his wife proved to have a husband already. There were two birth years, which led me to believe he lied about his age to enlist. There was a note of the tattoo in memory of his mother. Finally the mysterious M.T. Wandell revealed himself. In 1932 Wilson married Florence, who came with two sons, one of whom was named Mortimer Townsend Wandell. The photos from his many albums document his career in

the Navy. He began as an apprentice seaman May 4, 1911, retiring in 1939 for medical reasons. He returned to active duty in June 1941 during World War II. He was finally discharged in 1945. The albums only cover the interwar years but still they offer amazing insight into the Navy during this time. The photos Wilson took and are preserved in his albums. And his albums are only a small sampling what else lies in the USNI archives. Note: This article orginally appeared on the U.S. Naval Institute Naval History Blog, www.navalhistory.org.

ONR looks at importance of sleep to warfighters By Warren Duffie Office of Naval Research Public Affairs

ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) – To discuss the impact of sleep deprivation on warfighters, and share ideas on how to make sleep more revitalizing, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Department of Defense’s Human Performance Optimization Advisory Committee Aug. 4 held a workshop titled the “Restorative Effects of Sleep.” Americans are famously hard chargers who usually don’t get enough shut-eye. That’s particularly true in military ranks, where operational tempo is fast paced and mission completion paramount. Sleep can become a casualty, and fatigue too often a reality. “In the military, the mission comes first,” said Lt. Cmdr. Chris Steele, ONR’s Circadian, Sleep and Fatigue program manager. Steele’s team supports research on the effects of sleep loss on warfighters-and ways to increase physical and mental resiliency. “You aren’t always able to get as much sleep as you should. Our goal is to find ways to improve warfighter endurance and make the sleep they get as restful as possible. After all, sleep has a direct impact on performance and mission readiness.” Workshop discussions covered topics such as the value of power naps, whether to split up warfighters’ sleep time over the course of a day, and if daytime sleep is as beneficial as nighttime sleep. Presenters also highlighted current sleep research endeavors, many of which are sponsored by ONR. These included the value of establishing fixed work-rest schedules, monitoring alertness with and without proper rest and the effects of caffeine during sleep loss. Besides its military focus, Steele said he believes the conversations emerging from the workshop will benefit the greater public: “People are more aware of the importance of sleep than ever before. We're all busier, more stressed and have a hard time disconnecting from our smart devices at night. All of that impacts the quantity and quality of our sleep.” For more news from Office of Naval Research, visit www.navy.mil/local/onr.

MCPON speaks at Naval Academy, makes history Story, photo by MC1 Martin L. Carey Office of the MCPON

NNAPOLIS, Md. (NNS) – “Make no mistake about it: this journey you have embarked upon will be challenging. It will test you. You will have doubts and at times you will be tempted to quit,” said Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Mike Stevens. “It is OK to have those thoughts, but it's what you do with those thoughts that will guide you toward your goal of becoming a naval officer.” Stevens, the first MCPON to speak at the academy, delivered his speech to more than 1,100 plebes of the United States Naval Academy’s Class of 2019, marking the beginning of their four-year academic tour. MCPON shared a personal story about a time when he faced adversity in his career, and encouraged the future naval officers to dig deep inside themselves when they face adversity. “I made the decision that failure was not an option. I applied the level of effort that was necessary, and ultimately passed the course with flying colors,” said

Stevens. “It was what I learned from that experience, and others just like it, that has helped me throughout my career.” Stevens shared his perspective on how to be an overall healthy, wellrounded Sailor. “Something that I share with all my Sailors, is to be fit. Not just fit in the sense of physical exercise, but that you must be spiritually, physically, morally, and mentally fit,” he said. “What these things mean to each of you will vary, but I encourage you to be as fit as possible every day.” He continued, “I also ask that you remember to control those things which you own. There will be many things you do not have control over like reveille, academic standards and injuries. You can’t control these things because, simply put, they are out of your

hands,” Stevens said. “What you must focus on, is controlling those things that only you own. This includes your integrity, honesty, accountability, and treating one another with dignity and respect.” “Finally, remember to make every day your masterpiece,” said MCPON. “Attitude is

everything. Each morning when you wake up it is a new day, so have a positive attitude, and when you step out – step boldly. Embrace the challenges you will face.” The class of 2019 is one of the most diverse in all of the academy’s history, boasting 27 percent women, 36 percent minorities, 12 international

students, 61 former enlisted, and candidates from all fifty states, including the Virgin Islands, Northern Marianas Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. For more news from Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy, visit www. navy. mil/ local/ mcpon/.

Navy accepts delivery of USS Jackson (LCS 6) From Naval Sea Systems Command Office of Corporate Communication

M

OBILE, Ala. (NNS) – The Navy accepted delivery of the future USS Jackson (LCS 6) during a ceremony at the Austal USA shipyard in Mobile, Ala., Aug. 11. Jackson is the fifth littoral combat ship (LCS) to be delivered to the Navy, the third of the Independence variant to join the fleet. Capt. Warren R. Buller II, commander, Littoral Combat Ship Squadron 1, was on hand to mark the occasion. “We are pleased to receive the future USS Jackson into the LCS class,” Buller said. “Jackson will operate out of Mayport, Fla., while conducting full ship shock trials, prior to joining her sister littoral combat ships in their homeport of San Diego in late 2016.” Delivery marks the official transfer of LCS 6 from the shipbuilder, an Austal USA-led team, to the Navy. It is the final milestone prior to commissioning,

which is planned for December 2015 in Gulfport, Miss. “Today marks a significant milestone in the life of the future USS Jackson, an exceptional ship which will conduct antisubmarine, surface and mine countermeasure operations around the globe with ever increasing mission package capability,” said LCS program manager Capt. Tom Anderson. “It also marks a significant milestone for the LCS program, as the first of 20 LCS block buy ships delivers to the Navy. It is exciting to see these capable, yet affordable, ships transitioning from serial production to serial delivery.” Following commissioning and shock trials, Jackson will be homeported in San Diego with

her sister ships USS Freedom (LCS 1), USS Independence (LCS 2), USS Fort Worth (LCS 3) and USS Coronado (LCS 4). The LCS class is designed to defeat threats in coastal waters where increasingly capable submarines, mines and swarming small craft operate. To deliver ca-

pabilities against these threats, the Navy introduced LCS with innovative concepts, such as modular mission packages, to quickly respond to an evolving threat. Program Executive Office Littoral Combat Ships is responsible for delivering and sustain-

ing the fleet’s littoral mission capabilities. Consistent delivery of high-quality warfighting assets, while balancing affordability and capability, is key to supporting the Navy’s Maritime Strategy. For more news from Naval Sea Systems Command, visit www.navy.mil/local/navsea/.

Commemorating Mobile Bay: ship recalls the battle anniversary By MC2 Ryan J. Batchelder John C. Stennis Strike Group PAO

minated by the cutting of a cake commemorating the battle’s anniversary. According to many, the crew of the Mobile Bay is what drives the ship and its mission forward. The tight-knit community showcases a unique command that works well together not only because they have to, but because they want to. Their ship’s motto, Bearing and Determination, echo Adm. Farragut’s famous words during the Battle of Mobile Bay, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed

ahead.” While underway for COMPTUEX/ JTFEX, the Sailors of Mobile Bay have conducted many various evolutions. From damage control and aviation team drills, to numerous hours of flight quarters and live-fire exercises, the crew has stepped up and met every challenge the exercise has had to offer.

DeCA director and CEO visits NASWF Commissary Story, photo by Ens. Margaret E. Gresham NASWF Public Affairs

Director and CEO of Defense Commissary Agency, Joseph Jeu visited Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s (NASWF) Commissary July 16. He spent the afternoon touring the store, speaking to customers, and honoring commissary employees for their hard work. The Defense Commissary Agency better known as DeCA operates a worldwide chain of more than 241 commissaries providing groceries to military personnel, retirees and their families in a safe and secure shopping environment. The commissary sells goods at cost with a 5 percent surcharge that contributes to keeping up facilities and building new ones. An average savings of around 30 percent on each shopping trip can add up to thousands of dollars of savings a year. Jeu has held the position of director and chief executive officer since January 2011; he is a tier 3 senior executive, one of only 45 defense leaders to be so desig-

nated. This was Jeu’s first visit to the Gulf Coast, which included NASWF’s commissary. “In preparation for the director’s visit, we spent a lot of time ensuring our facility was the best it could be. Mr. Jeu believes we should be our best every day for the real VIPs, the service members and their families. The visit was a good time to reassess how and what we are doing because the expectation is high when leadership visits,” store director Kristi Linn said. She also commented that the visit provided an opportunity for the employees to gain face-to-

face time with DeCA leadership hopefully reducing their feeling of isolation from top tiers. “To have the director invest his time in each employee and hear his appreciation of their hard work has an immeasurable impact on morale and sense of belonging. When the director shared his vision for the agency it helped the employees to feel pride in where they work, when they too are dedicated to the agency’s goals,” stated Linn. Jeu emphasized to the store employees that taking care of military families the number one goal.

“Our number one job at the commissary is to support military families. This store emulates that support, and I recognize great spirit and wonderful customer service when I see it,” Jeu said. After the store tour, Linn gathered all the employees to recognize a few selected members for their hard work and dedication to the store. The recipients of the director’s coins presented by Jeu were Jesse Hanna from the produce department, Jack Moore from the grocery department, William Peck from the meat department and Tuyet Williams, a

store cashier. Each of these employees displayed superior customer service and dedication to serving military members and their families. Lastly, Jeu surprised Linn with the presentation of her very own director’s coin for all of her hard work and dedication to the NASWF Commissary. The director did not give the store any specific areas that need improvement, but Linn knows there is still work to do. “There is always room to improve and our goal is to be inspection ready always and focus on world class customer service.”

Summer teen hire program benefits base, locals Story, photo by Ens. Jeremiah Griffin NASWF Public Affairs

Eleven local teens are working hard and building valuable employment experience at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) as part of the Teen Hire program. The initiative was set up by Commander, Navy Installations Command (CINC) to encourage youth development and strengthen the civilian communities’ ties to bases in their area as part of their Child and Youth programs. Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) offices set up and maintain local youth employment programs using grants from CINC. NAS Whiting Field participated in the

MWR’s Brianna Danos helps with clerical work.

program for the past six years, hiring an average of seven teens a summer. Due to the size and hours of the base, the program runs typically during the summer to maintain availability. To be eligible for the program, a teen must have base access to NASWF. Those who wished to participate then had to attend a mandatory hiring fair. At

the fair, potential hires received instruction on filling out resumes, submitting applications and how to present themselves during a job interview. They then get to put their new skills to good use. “The teens go through an interview process where they get to interview for all positions that are available. That way, even the teens

that aren’t hired, have the experience of participating in at least seven interviews. The managers for each area hire the applicant they feel is best suited for their program,” said Chris Hendrix, the NAS Whiting Field School Liaison Officer. The teens hired this summer were Kourtney Prevot, assisting at the Child Development Center, Paige Thompson at the Coffee Shop, Michael Johnson and Westley Wuesthoff at Mulligans, Amy Fulmer at the gym, Brianna Raiff and Kyla Kirby at the Liberty center, Tyler Kelley at the Outdoor Recreation office, Gerrod Granger and Gregory Baker at Whiting Park, and Brianna Danos, assisting with MWR administration.

Danos, 17, worked in the MWR administration office. “I heard about the program on Facebook, and I thought it would be a good place to get work experience since this would be my first real job,” she said. Beyond the interview and hiring process, the program continues to educate the teens, who receive an hour of job skills training each week by the Fleet and Family Support Center. Each teen is also required to conduct a project for the summer relating to or for the job they were hired for. Fulmer, hired at the gym, helped to brainstorm, coordinate, and execute the recent 5K Color Fun Run at NAS Whiting Field. Additionally, they must submit an essay on their

experiences and growth through the program. At the MWR coffee shop, Thompson also was employed for the first time. She heard about the program from her sister, who had been a Teen Hire previously. “I really like being able to interact with everyone who comes in and hear about their day. I would definitely recommend it for others, it’s really effective at getting you out of your comfort zone and used to working with new people,” she said. T.J. Edgar, fitness director at the NAS Whiting Field gym, was impressed with the teens’ improvements. “It’s great to watch them come together and they’re definitely good additions,” Edgar said.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

Blue Angels aid local first responders in auto crash By MC1 Terrence Siren Blue Angels Public Affairs

C

HICAGO (NNS) – Sailors and Marines of the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, were first on the scene to a single-vehicle automobile accident in Gary, Ind., Aug. 13, quickly providing emergency care to an injured motorist. Seven members of the Blue Angels maintenance and support team were driving from the nearby Gary/Chicago International Airport, where air show performers were staged that weekend for the Chicago Air and Water Show. The Blue Angels came upon a vehicle that appeared to have crashed headon into the roadside guard rail with its occupant trapped inside the vehicle. Pulling to the side of the road, the Blue Angels rushed to assist the injured motorist. The driver of the vehicle appeared unconscious and the vehicle’s doors could not be opened. While Marine Sgt. Adrienne Castillo immediately telephoned local emergency services, AE1 Brian Coffman, AE2 Jennifer Piatek, AZ1 Zoltan Prestridge, AD2 Justin Hanks, AT2 Scott Marquett and AT2 George Thiess

rushed to assist the injured motorist. Coffman and Thiess, who is a volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician of 12 years with the JoppaMagnolia Volunteer Fire Company in his home state of Maryland, broke the rear passenger window to enter the vehicle and aid its lone occupant while Castillo, Prestridge, Marquett, Hanks and Piatek directed traffic around the wreck. “Everyone was calm, cool and collected the entire time,” said Thiess. “We cleared the debris, put the vehicle in park and turned the engine off. Right after that, I immediately established ‘c-spine’ (prehospital cervical spinal immobilization) to prevent further injury.” The driver regained consciousness while the team members were waiting for emergency services, and Thiess

and the others continued to talk to, care for and calm the injured driver until members of the Gary Fire Department arrived. After Thiess briefed the onscene medics on what procedures had already been done, the firefighters of Gary Fire Department Engine 8 took over, extracting the driver from the vehicle with hydraulic rescue tools and equipment. The driver is expected to recover from his injuries. “When you’re riding a fire engine or on an emergency call, you know what to expect, but we’re here for an air show, so it initially caught me off guard,”

Thiess said. “Fortunately, training took over and we were able to help out.” “George is an outstanding example of the exemplary Marines and Sailors that make up the Blue Angels, and our Navy and Marine Corps,” said Blue Angels Commanding Officer and Flight Leader Tom Frosch. “All of the Sailors and Marines involved with this rescue did exactly what they are trained to do. I could not be more proud of each and every one of them.” The Blue Angels were in Chicago for their scheduled performance at the Chicago Air

and Water Show Aug. 15 and 16. The mission of the Blue Angels is to showcase the pride and professionalism of the United States Navy and Marine Corps by inspiring a culture of excellence and service to country through flight demonstrations and community outreach. Since its inception in 1946, the Blue Angels have performed for more than 484 million fans. For more information, call the Blue Angels Public Affairs Office at 452-3955.

chaeologist of the Florida Public Archaeology Network, gave a presentation Aug. 8 on “Spanish Florida and Foreigners in Their Own Land” following a screening of the PBS “Latino Americans” episode “Foreigners in their Own Land: 15651880.” As part of the grant, the Historic Trust received the six-part, NEHsupported documentary series “Latino Americans,” created for PBS. The award-winning series chronicles the history of Latinos in the United States from the 16th cen-

tury to present day. Grant-funded programming includes a series of book discussions entitled “Latin Americans in Print.” Books to be discussed are “The House on Mango Street” by Sandra Cisneros, Aug. 27; “Love in the Time of Cholera” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Sept. 24; and “The Book of Unknown Americans” by Christina Henriquez, Oct. 22. All discussions will start at 6 p.m. The grant also supports Nuestra Historia, a month-long program coinciding with Hispanic

American Heritage Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. The funding enables the Historic Trust to capture stories of Latino Americans in the community through oral interviews. The interviews can be scheduled by appointment beginning Sept. 15. Participants may also have their family photographs scanned for inclusion in the UWF Historic Trust archives.

Laugh all night for a good cause From Covenant Hospice

I

f you’ve always wanted to explore the mystery of the Far East, hop on your magic carpet to experience a colorful evening of grand allure and spellbinding comedy. The 21st annual Evening of Comedy is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. today, Aug. 21, at Hilton Pensacola Beach Gulf Front. The cocktail-style event will feature an Arabian Nights theme with a sit-down dinner, live and silent auctions, themerelated activities and a performance by stand-up comedian T. Bubba Bechtol, also known as “America’s favorite Bubba.” Exotic cuisine, enchanting music and a prize drawing also will be part the festivities. Dress is cocktail and business attire. Guests can wear their favorite theme-inspired outfit or come in costume as a genie, sultan or desert princess. Bechtol is the unofficial, unelected and self-proclaimed mayor of the Redneck Riviera. Bechtol is an 18-year Grand Ole Opry perennial favorite and the 2014 International Creative Management (ICM) Comedian of the Year. His comedy is clean and fun. In addition to lots of laughs,

COMMAND LINES

SAPR 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.
