NASP Feds Feed Families campaign in final week By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

If you need a reason to contribute to the Feds Feeds Families (FFF) food drive, consider this. It is estimated that about 20 percent of U.S. households requiring food assistance include a member who is serving or has served in the military, according to new survey by Feeding America, the nation’s leading hunger-relief charity. And 620,000 of those households have at least one active-duty military member. That’s one-quarter of all U.S. military households. The annual Feds Feed Families campaign, which kicked off June 1, has a big impact. Since the cam-

paign began in 2009, federal workers have donated and collected 24.1 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families across America.

This year’s drive has surpassed expectations at Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). The total collected so far this year is 91,518 pounds, according to Command Chaplain Cmdr. Steven “Todd” Orren. That is well above this year’s 58,000-pound goal for NASP. And there are a few

days left if you want to increase that total with your donations. The campaign is scheduled to end Aug. 27. You can bring your non-perishable food items to the following drop-off locations: • NAS Pensacola Chaplain’s Office, Bldg. 634. • NAS Pensacola Command Headquarters (Richardson Building) quarterdeck. • Naval Hospital Pensacola Pharmacy. • NASP Commissary, 5800 West Highway 98. Feds Feed Families is a voluntary effort supported by Federal employees across the nation where employees donate food

NATTC donates four tons of food to feed needy By Lt. Jonathan Bacon NATTC PAO

The staff and students at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Pensacola were honored Aug. 15 for the donation of 8,144 pounds of food to area food banks through the sixth annual Feds Feed Families (FFF) program. Sponsored by the United States De-

partment of Agriculture and Chief Human Capital Officers Council, FFF is voluntary program where employees across the federal government donate non-perishable food items to food banks and food pantries in their local communities. MANNA Food Pantries of Pensacola was the local recipient of the food items

NATTC donated through this year’s FFF program. JoAnn Howansky, the outreach manager for MANNA, visited NATTC to convey her organization's gratitude for the donation. Howansky told NATTC staff and students about the challenges her organization has experienced after torrential rainfall flooded downtown Pensacola earlier

Survey results steer changes in women’s uniforms By Rear Adm. Fritz Roegge Director, Military Personnel Plans and Policy Division

In this update, I want to provide the results of the 2013 Women’s Uniform Survey and share a number of uniform changes that are in the works. First, I would like to thank you for your participation and for the wide range of views expressed. The executive summary of the survey can be found on the Uniform Matters website (www.public.navy.mil/bupersnpc/support/uniforms/Pages/default2.aspx). Some of the survey highlights include: 1. The survey asked for the satisfaction rating of various uniforms. When asked, “Rate your satisfaction with how professional uniform garments appear on you,” more than 50 percent of respondents answered “Very Satisfied” or “Satisfied” for 26 of 27 uniform items. When asked, “Rate your satisfaction with the comfort of uniform garments,” more than 50 percent of respondents answered “Very Satisfied” or “Satisfied” for 44 of 53 uniform items. When asked, “Rate your satisfaction with the fit of uniform garments,” more than 50 percent of respondents answered

How to submit a commentary

“Very Satisfied” or “Satisfied” for 45 of 53 uniform items. 2. When asked what changes to women’s uniforms were desired, the changes most requested by women would be to improve the comfort, fit, and/or function of: • Slacks (making the waist lower, and adding or increasing the size of pockets). • Coats (increasing shoulder area and arm hole of SDB and SDW, and adding pockets). • Skirts (making the hemline narrower and the waist lower). • Overblouse (add more length to the bottom of the shirt and to add room in the shoulder area). • Tuck-in shirts for chiefs and officers (add a satin lining on the inside of the collar and add more room in the shoulder for both the SK and SW shirts). 3. Our way ahead: • We are working with NEXCOM to determine the scope of work for each recommendation; we’ll pursue those things that have the best return on investment and address the rest in a long range campaign plan. Three of the items that we will begin work on are: • Improving the waist and hip design of the khaki slacks and providing belted and beltless options. • Adding an additional func-

tional pocket for the Service Dress Blue (SDB) Coat. • Narrowing the hemline of the khaki and white skirts to have a design similar to the SDB skirt. This fall, we plan to begin an anthropometric correlation study on body sizing to improve our uniforms’ patterns and consequently our uniforms’ fit. Once we have concluded that study, we will explore possible additional changes to female uniform designs that could incorporate some of the other sur-

vey findings. We’re also working on additional uniform issues and big picture changes. Feedback from the fleet indicates a need for clearer grooming standards that encompass a broader range of women’s hairstyles. In response, we are rewriting Uniform Regulations Article 2201 to update guidance and to better define authorized and unauthorized female hairstyles. I expect a revision to female grooming standards to be promulgated this fall.

Also this fall, we’ll expand the wear test of the jumper style E-6 and below service dress blue uniform for women with the White Hat (Dixie Cup) by approximately 300 Sailors in the Norfolk, Va., area. This test will incorporate feedback received from the preliminary evaluation conducted earlier during the spring. As we consider any change to uniforms to improve fit, function, or appearance, our goal remains to have uniforms that our Sailors will wear proudly at sea and ashore and that project our proud Navy heritage. Overall, the changes being pursued: • Are conscious of minimizing cost; in fact, some initiatives will save money. • Are conscious of impact on the sea bag. • Strive to reflect fleet feedback. Will ensure we “do it right” to improve fit and function; for example, we won’t issue a man’s uniform to a woman; we’ll design a woman’s uniform. We take feedback from the fleet seriously and look forward to hearing what’s on your mind. E-mail umo_cmc@navy.mil for feedback on uniform matters and usnpeople@gmail.com for feedback on other personnel matters.

Gain career knowledge through PACT designation From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – The Professional Apprenticeship Career Track (PACT) program provides unique career opportunities for some first-term Sailors through apprenticelevel formal and on-the-job training within a 24-month period. The main purpose of PACT is to provide Sailors who are unsure about which Navy career fields interest them an opportunity to learn about different Navy jobs without having to make a decision at the time of enlistment. The PACT program has three apprentice tracks encompassing career fields within aviation (A-PACT), engineering (E-PACT) and surface (S-PACT). “PACT places the Sailor in a better position to choose from a variety of ratings and gives them a chance to see a rating in its entirety,” said NCC (SW/EXW/AW) Jesse Reed, Navy Personnel Command Force career counselor. “The Sailor is provided an opportunity to learn more about a particular rate in order to better make a decision about what path they would like to follow.” Soon after checking aboard their first command, PACT Sailors will meet with their command career counselor and immediate chain of command to discuss personal and professional goals. They will also discuss rating or job eligibility for potential ratings via the Career Waypoint (C-WAY) system, conduct required Career Development Boards (CDB), PACT designation quotas, and potential time-in-rate eligibility for participation in the Navywide advancement exams. “It is detrimental to the Sailor if commands are not engaging with the progression of their PACT designated Sailors,” added Reed. PACT Sailors who are not designated into a specific rating within 12months on board their first duty station may apply for an available Navy “A” school quota provided that they have maintained PACT program and “A” school eligibility. If a Sailor has not received a quota into a new rating within the original 24-month window, their projected rotation date will extend to their end of active obligated service. If they don’t pick up a rating by their EAOS, they will be separated.

USS Theodore Roosevelt conducts combined manned, unmanned operations From USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) Public Affairs

USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT, At Sea (NNS) –The Navy’s unmanned X-47B returned to carrier operations aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) Aug. 17 and completed a series of tests, operating safely and seamlessly with manned aircraft. Building on lessons learned from its first test period aboard TR in November 2013, the X-47B team is now focused on perfecting deck operations and performing maneuvers with manned aircraft in the flight pattern. “Today we showed that the X-47B could take off, land and fly in the carrier pattern with manned aircraft while maintaining normal flight deck operations,” said Capt. Beau Duarte, program

manager for the Navy’s Unmanned Carrier Aviation office. “This is key for the future carrier air wing.”

The Navy’s unmanned X-47B is readied for launch aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71). Photo by MCSA Alex Millar

The first series of manned/unmanned operations began Aug. 17 when the ship launched an F/A-18 and an X-47B. After an eight-minute flight, the X-47B executed an arrested landing, folded its wings and taxied out of the landing area. The deck-based operator used a newly developed deck handling control to manually move the aircraft out of the way of other aircraft, allowing the F/A18 to touch down close behind the X47B’s recovery. The Navy will continue X-47B flight operations over the next year to refine the concept of operations to demonstrate the integration of unmanned carrier-based aircraft within the carrier environment and mature technologies for the future Unmanned Carrier Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike system.

Alteration installation team continues fleet modernization support From Office of Corporate Communications, Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Public Affairs

P

ANAMA CITY, Fla. (NNS) – Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Panama City mine warfare in-service engineering agent (ISEA) and a team of mine warfare experts recently modernized two mine sweepers within a four-month window to enable a homeport change. USS Pioneer (MCM 9) and USS Chief (MCM 14), two Avenger class minesweepers, were assigned a homeport change from San Diego to Sasebo, Japan, in February but needed critical upgrades before their scheduled departure from San Diego in May. “We modernized two minesweepers in four months because that’s all the time they had and that is what we do,” said Mike Bobroski, SQQ-32 ISEA project engineer, NSWC Panama City. “Our objective was to support modernization initiatives in Seventh Fleet at the earliest opportunity and provide our shipmates with the tools and capabilities to effectively execute missions and maintain a safe posture.” To enable their forward deployed missions, the ships both needed an upgrade to the latest mine hunting sonar, the High Frequency Wide Band (HFWB) sonar set, also called the AN/SQQ-32(V)4. The AN/ SQQ-32 sonar system is critical to minesweepers as it detects,

classifies and localizes moored mines from a stand-off distance. Modernizations require extensive coordination between NSWC Panama City response teams and the ship’s crew, as it is more than simply swapping out parts. It requires shipboard integration and testing to ensure the equipment will perform as intended when operated by the Sailors in a threat environment. It also includes training the Sailors on how to use the updated equipment properly. “Fleet modernization is a careful, deliberate process used to deliver real-time, technical support to some U.S. Navy surface combatants,” said NSWC Panama City Technical Director Ed Stewart. “Ships like minesweepers, and their Sailors, depend greatly upon the equipment updates and training provided by civilian engineers like those who upgrade mine warfare systems in Panama City, Fla. Our surface mine warfare experts continue to apply technical rigor to deliver repeatable, quality results every time on time. The fleet depends on us and

The Avenger-class mine countermeasures ships USS Pioneer (MCM 9) and USS Chief (MCM 14) are hauled into Yokosuka Naval Base by an Eide Marine Services cargo ship.

we take this very seriously.” NSWC Panama City’s mine warfare response teams are comprised of civilian, military and contracted specialists. And for this project, two teams, the Conditional Assessment Repair Evaluation (CARE) and Alteration Installation Teams (AIT) were integral to the modernization success. “This proactive solution not only elevated operational availability above fleet thresholds for the first time in fifteen years, but provided a mechanism to address the hardships facing our SMCM community continually challenged with limited resources and funding to support our system.

This successful concept not only course corrected the entire sonar program, it sustained capabilities above threshold over the last two years,” said Rob Coffey, Surface ISEA branch head at NSWC PCD. “This concept has been adopted by other programs and systems embedded aboard our MCM-1 class ships and has expanded the system knowledge across the waterfront while supporting dedicated maintenance and training initiatives for the fleet.” This successful fleet response project was able to meet the ships’ deployment schedule and is reflective of the mine warfare team at NSWC Panama City re-

sponsibilities. Routine deployments help mine warfare Sailors troubleshoot problems and keep their vessels in optimal condition. The team continues to modernize the U.S. Navy’s AN/SQQ-32 fleet with six installations scheduled for completion by Jan. 31, 2016. “One of our core mission areas is mine warfare,” said NSWC Panama City Commanding Officer Capt. Phillip Dawson III. “When the fleet has a technical, mine warfare problem, they come to us. They know we can support them.” For more news from Naval Sea Systems Command, visit www.navy.mil/local/navsea/.

Whiting Field holds SAPR drill By Jay Cope NASWF PAO

Navy Region Southeast’s recent Regional Operational Assessment and Assistance Program (ROAAP) inspection provided Naval Air Station (NAS) Whiting Field another opportunity to test the installation’s ability to respond to and help aid a sexual assault victim. NAS Whiting Field has held three drills in the past 12 months with an emphasis on improving the base’s readiness and response to aid potential victims of this crime. The July 24 drill scenario involved testing Whiting Field’s response teams to two different events occurring simultaneously. The first drill involved an aircraft fire with multiple injuries, followed in just a few minutes by an alleged sexual assault with the suspect then barricading himself in a barracks room with a handgun. The initial drill tested communication procedures, fire and emergency service response times, security protocols and more, but it was a routine drill that served as a prelude to the second drill that commenced before the first drill concluded. That forced on-scene personnel to make priority decisions and reallocate scant resources, and tested the team’s ability to respond to multiple events at the same time. Initial reports following the drill were mostly favorable. “What I saw today was a highly motivated team, and it goes throughout the base,” said Capt. Brett W. Calkins, the ROAAP team leader. “The SAPR-related scenario developed by the installation training team was the first of its kind within ROAAP with innovations that will only strengthen future training. While there are a few discrepancies, Whiting Field did a great job and is clearly moving in the right direction.” The simulated aircraft fire is a drill military bases have performed for decades, but the Sex-

ual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) drill reflects the Navy’s continuing emphasis on combating sexual assault in the military. Such drills are relatively recent occurrences, and NAS Whiting Field was one of the first shore installations in the South-

east Region to plan and conduct a sexual assault response drill when the base held its first one last September. This particular drill followed the script of a military officer assaulting a female civilian employee with a passerby hearing

the altercation and reporting the assault to the proper officials. In the scenario for the drill, the victim fled the scene and the suspect then barricaded himself in his room and ultimately took his life. The drill required response by NAS Whiting Field security forces, emergency response teams, a victim advocate (VA), NCIS, mobilization of Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) counselors, and emergency operation center (EOC) activation. Primary emphasis was on the care of the victim and safety of any bystanders. Such a drill encompasses a lot of moving parts and involves a number of different organizations both on and off the base. According to the NASWF SAPR Coordinator Kristin Klein, that’s why the drills are so important. “The drills help us ensure the system is working as it should,” she stated. Fortunately, there are very few opportunities to re-

spond to real world situations here, and the exercises help make sure we and our VAs are ready and can respond seamlessly.” The overall response to the scenario was praised by the inspection team, and garnered attention from NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin, who praised not only their actions during the drill, but in managing the program overall. “Our SAPR team does a great job executing the program and training both installation and tenant personnel,” Coughlin said. “Their efforts are vital toward ensuring we are able to minimize the risk of sexual assault and responding should one occur. This exercise shows that we are improving in our capabilities, and although I hope I never need to deploy the team, I have confidence in their ability to react appropriately such that the victim’s care and safety are paramount.”

Clear Creek RV Park a success in opening months By 1st Lt. Nathan A. Boyar NASWF PAO

Success at NASWF Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s (MWR) Clear Creek RV Park has staff excited about the future for the park. Averaging around a 70 percent occupancy rate, the park has proven itself as an asset to the government service community. “When I arrived in 2012 and heard of the project, I had a great feeling about it. I think our current success is just the beginning,” MWR Recreation Program Manager Don Inman said. The 10-site park is surrounded by Santa Rosa County’s natural resources. All sites measure 20-by-40 feet and provide full hook-ups (water, sewer, electrical) with 30/50 amp electrical. The bathhouse and laundry facility offer convenience to the camping experience. Confirmation of the parks development required jumping a few obstacles. “Our Clear Creek RV Park was a long time in the making, as the original concept was developed in 1995. There was a demand and we stayed on task to fulfill our customer’s desires,” Inman said. The project was shelved for many years but was picked back up in 2009. Clear Creek RV Park officially opened in March 2014.

Since its opening the RV park has been featured on U.S. military campgrounds and RV parks, as well as Department of Defense lodging websites. The cost and location of Clear Creek RV Park highlight it to meet the niche of traveling active duty, retiree travelers and geographical bachelors vacationing or staying in the Milton area. “This new addition to the Navy’s RV park system provides just one more opportunity for our patrons to find convenient stops along a vacation route, stays in the comfort and security confines of a military base, and offers a chance to get away from

busy day-to-day life,” MWR Director Joseph Vukovcan emphasized. The park is close to other outdoor recreational opportunities such as walking and hiking trails, golfing, off-road biking, sports fields and fishing, and is convenient to other amenities. Travelers have easy access to the local Navy Exchange, commissary, barber shop, swimming pools and a state-of-the-art fitness center on base. The large inventory of equipment from Outdoor Adventures, such as canoes and kayaks, bikes, campers, and camping supplies, may be rented from MWR. “To date, we have seen steady occupancy rates, and as more people find out we are here, I anticipate that to increase,” Inman said about the future of the park. “We hope to expand our number of sites in the future, but in the short term, MWR is working on ideas such as primitive camp sites and miniature cabins.” Clear Creek RV Park is just outside the main gate of NAS Whiting Field. It is a 20-minute drive from Interstate 10, approximately eight miles north on Highway 90. The rates are $20 per day, $115 per week and $350 per month for activeduty and retirees; and $24 per day, $135 per week and $400 per month for other authorized patrons.

Emergency

Preparedness

Month

In September, remember: Have a plan From www.ready.gov

Preparing makes sense. The likelihood that you and your family will survive a house fire depends as much on having a working smoke detector and an exit strategy, as on a well-trained fire department. The same is true for surviving a terrorist attack or another emergency. We must have the tools and plans in place to make it on our own, at least for a period of time, no matter where we are when disaster strikes. Just like having a working smoke detector, preparing for the unexpected makes sense. Get ready now.

Get a kit. Get a kit of emergency supplies. Be prepared to improvise and use what you have on hand to make it on your own for at least three days, maybe longer. While there are many things that might make you more comfortable, think first about fresh water, food and clean air. Consider two kits. In one, put everything you will need to stay where you are and make it on your own. The other should be a lightweight, smaller version you can take with you if you have to get away. You’ll need a gallon of water per person per day for drinking and sanitation. Include in the kits a three-day supply of non-perishable foods that are easy to store and prepare such as protein bars, dried fruit or canned foods. If you live in a cold weather climate, include warm clothes and a sleeping bag for each member of the family. Some potential terrorist attacks could send tiny microscopic “junk” into the air. Many of these materials can only hurt you if they get into your body, so think about creating a barrier between yourself and any contamination. It’s smart to have something for each member of the family that covers their mouth and nose, such as two to three layers of a cotton T-shirt, handkerchief or towel or filter masks, readily available in hardware stores. It is very important that the mask or other material fit your face snugly so that most of the air you breathe comes through the mask, not around it. Do whatever you can to make the best fit possible for children. Also, include duct tape and heavyweight garbage bags or plastic sheeting that can be used to seal windows and doors if you need to create a barrier between yourself and any potential contamination outside.

Make a plan. Make a plan for what you will do in an emergency. Plan in advance what you will do in an emergency. Be prepared to assess the situation. Use common sense and whatever you have on hand to take care of yourself and your loved ones. Develop a Family Communications Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so plan how you will contact one another and review what you will do in different situations. Consider a plan where each family member calls, or emails, the same friend or relative in the event of an emergency. It

several destinations in different directions so you have options in an emergency. If you have a car, keep at least a half tank of gas in it at all times. Become familiar with alternate routes as well as other means of transportation out of your area. If you do not have a car, plan how you will leave if you have to. Take your emergency supply kit, unless you have reason to believe it is contaminated and lock the door behind you. Take pets with you if you are told to evacuate, however, if you are going to a public shelter, keep in mind they may not be allowed inside.

supply kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency. However, there are significant differences among potential terrorist threats, such as biological, chemical, explosive, nuclear and radiological, which will impact the decisions you make and the actions you take. By beginning a process of learning about these specific threats, you are preparing yourself to react in an emergency. Go to www.ready.gov to learn more about potential terrorist threats and other emergencies or call 1 (800) BE-READY (1 (800) 237-3239) for a free

may be easier to make a longdistance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members. Be sure each person knows the phone number and has coins or a prepaid phone card to call the emergency contact. You may have trouble getting through, or the phone system may be down altogether, but be patient. Depending on your circumstances and the nature of the attack, the first important decision is whether you stay put or get away. You should understand and plan for both possibilities. Use common sense and the information you are learning here to determine if there is immediate danger. Watch television and listen to the radio for official instructions as they become available.

E D R A D O Q L K S R B C K A

Create a Plan to Shelter-inPlace. There are circumstances when staying put and creating a barrier between yourself and potentially contaminated air outside, a process known as sheltering-in-place and sealing the room can be a matter of survival. If you see large amounts of debris in the air, or if local authorities say the air is badly contaminated, you may want to shelter-in-place and seal the room. Consider precutting plastic sheeting to seal windows, doors and air vents. Each piece should be several inches larger than the space you want to cover

so that you can duct tape it flat against the wall. Label each piece with the location of where it fits. Use all available information to assess the situation. If it is necessary, quickly bring your family and pets inside, lock doors and close windows, air vents and fireplace dampers. Immediately turn off air conditioning, forced air heating systems, exhaust fans and clothes dryers. Take your emergency supplies and go into the room you have designated. Seal all windows, doors and vents. Understand that sealing the room is a temporary measure to create a barrier between you and contaminated air. Watch TV, listen to the radio or check the Internet for instructions. Create a Plan to Get Away. Plan in advance how you will assemble your family and anticipate where you will go. Choose

If you believe the air may be contaminated, drive with your windows and vents closed and keep the air conditioning and heater turned off. Listen to the radio for instructions. Know Emergency Plans at School and Work. Think about the places where your family spends time: school, work and other places your family frequents. Talk to your children’s schools and your employer about emergency plans. Find out how they will communicate with families during an emergency. If you are an employer, be sure you have an emergency preparedness plan. Review and practice it with your employees. A community working together during an emergency also makes sense.

Jokes & Groaners In case of emergency ‘jokes’ A troop of Boy Scouts were being used as “guinea pigs” in a test of emergency systems. A mock earthquake was staged and the Scouts impersonated wounded persons who were to be picked up and cared for by the emergency units. One Scout was supposed to lie on the ground and await his rescuers, but the first-aid people got behind schedule, and the Scout lay “wounded” for several hours. When the first-aid squad arrived where the casualty was supposed to be, they found nothing but a brief note: “Have splinted my own legs and walked home ...” A man rushed his son to the emergency room after the boy swallowed two quarters. A nurse came into the room to check on him. The man asked her, “Nurse, is there any news?” She turned as she was leaving the room and answered, “Sorry, there’s no change.” EMS Dispatcher: “What’s the nature of your emergency?” Caller: “My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart.” Dispatcher: “Is this her first child?” Caller: “No, no! This is her husband.”

dm. Bill Gortney, commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Command toured Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Aug. 15 to see firsthand how Sailors and Marines are trained for the fleet. At NATTC, Gortney had the opportunity to observe the full range of aviation maintenance training to include advanced “C” schools for radar maintenance, carrier and amphibious air traffic control at the Air Traffic Control Schoolhouse. Additionally, he saw the Aviation Boatswain’s Mate Handling and Aviation Boatswain’s Mate Fuels “C” schools at NATTC’s Air Training Department. During the visit, Gortney observed the Joint Oil Analysis Program “C” school and the Naval Aviation Logistics Command Management Information System (NALCOMIS) “C” school. He talked to the Sailors and Marines as he walked through an aviation structural mechanic metal fabrication lab and the Aviation Machinist’s Mate Jet Engine Lab. Capt. Alan Dean, NATTC’s commanding officer, who accompanied Gortney on the visit, said, “I appreciate Adm. Gortney taking time to visit NATTC to meet our staff and students and see our facilities. Our staff is the best our Navy and Marine Corps has to offer. They are highly motivated subject matter experts that provide the best entry level and advanced aviation technical training to our Navy, Marine Corps and international students in support of the Naval Aviation Enterprise.

His photography exhibit, “The Importance of Elsewhere,” opened Aug. 18 and is scheduled to be featured through Dec. 12 at Anna Lamar Switzer Center for Visual Arts. The presentation, “An Evening with Steve McCurry,” is scheduled for 6 p.m. Aug. 27 at the Pensacola Saenger Theatre. The event will feature behind-thescenes commentary and McCurry will

share his method for capturing the essence of a person through the art of portraiture. Cost is $24 plus service charge. Tickets to a VIP reception are available through Pensacola State College (PSC). McCurry is best known for his “Afghan Girl” photograph, which became a national icon after appearing on the cover of National Geographic. He has been one of the most iconic figures in contemporary photography for more than 30 years. Born in Philadelphia, McCurry studied cinematography at The Pennsylvania State University. After two years of working for a newspaper, McCurry made his first trip to South Asia to freelance. McCurry is recognized for capturing evocative and moving images that span

six continents. His photos reveal conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary cultures – yet retain the human element. McCurry has covered many areas of international and civil conflict, including Afghanistan and Southeast Asia. He focuses on the human consequences of war, not only showing what war impresses on the landscape, but rather, what it shows on the human face. McCurry has been recognized with some of the prestigious awards including the Robert Capa Gold Medal, National Press Photographers Award and an unprecedented four first-prize awards from the World Press Photo contest. For more information, call 484-1847 or go to www.pensacolasaenger.com or http://visualarts.pensacolastate.edu.

Sharbat Gula was the subject of a photography shot by Steve McCurry in December 1984. For more about McCurry and his photographs, go to http://stevemccurry.com.

The Miss GEICO offshore powerboat zooms along during one of the past Thunder on the Gulf events. The powerboats race through the waves at speeds up to 200 mph.

Florida’s record-breaking Miss GEICO powerboat racing team hopes to roar to a doubleheader victory at Thunder on the Gulf in Orange Beach, Ala., followed by the Pensacola Grand Prix. The new, 50-foot Miss GEICO Victory is carrying the team’s 2014 hopes in pursuit of an eighth world title. “We’re excited to be back racing out on the open ocean,” said Miss GEICO throttleman Scott Begovich. “The FloraBama rivalry will kick things into a higher gear.” The team is scheduled to race in Orange Beach today,

Aug. 22, before cruising to Pensacola to compete in another race. While this is the 11th anniversary of Orange Beach’s Thunder on the Gulf, the Gulf Coast Powerboat Association raised the stakes by putting a new race on its heels: the inaugural Thunder Run Superboat Grand Prix, which is scheduled for Aug. 24 in Pensacola Bay. “The hope is to bring more of these mammoth race boats to the Flora-Bama coast,” says event coordinator Kathy Melson. “Race fans will be able to enjoy the races from one of 6,000 condos that line the liquid raceway. It’s like each balcony is a skybox.” The giant power boats will

be on display at Plaza de Luna and the port of Pensacola tomorrow, Aug. 23, where fans can enjoy a festival atmosphere along the waterfront featuring vendors, artist and live entertainment. In the afternoon, the racers will compete in a shootout on the bay to see who has the fastest boat. In the evening, the boats will line up and parade downtown and there will be a fireworks display compliments of the Blue Wahoos. The 6.5 mile Thunder Run Grand Prix races will begin at 1 p.m. Aug. 24, with the final races at 3 p.m. For more information on the races, go to www.thunderon thegulf.com.
