Vouchers offer streamlined path to officer graduate education By Ed Barker NETC PAO

Naval officers unable to pursue full-time graduate studies have an additional education option with the F Y- 1 4 Graduate Education Vo u c h e r (GEV) program announced recently. Detailed in Naval Administrative Message (NavAdmin) 185/13, the GEV program offers eligible officers the opportunity to receive funded graduate education during off-duty hours. Through GEV, unrestricted line (URL) officers can apply to receive funding for Navy-relevant graduate education meeting the requirements of at least one subspecialty code as specified by the Navy Subspecialty System. “Many officers find it difficult to maintain career progression and simultaneously schedule full-time education at the Naval

Postgraduate School (NPS), Naval War College or other institutions,” said Cheral Wintling, graduate education coordinator for Naval Education and Training Command (NETC). “The GEV program offers a streamlined path to an off-duty master’s degree with financial support of up to $20,000 per fiscal year, with a total limit of $40,000 for the entire course of study.” All required fees normally charged by the university relating directly to student application and enrollment, including mandatory health fees and health insurance, laboratory fees, vehicle registration and identification cards, and computer fees are reimbursable. Other reimbursable expenses include the cost of textbooks and course materials, and limited expenditures for transcript and entry fees, and final thesis production.

Lt. Gary Redman, a E2C Hawkeye weapons and tactics instructor at the Airborne Command Control and Logistics Weapons School in Norfolk is a current GEV participant pursuing his Master of Science in systems engineering with George Washington University satellite campus in Newport News, Va. “This degree will give me flexibility both inside

The final push is on for the 2013 Feds Feed Families campaign. The annual DoD campaign started June 1 onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP), NASP Corry Station and Saufley Field and 59,000 pounds of food and essential items have been collected so far, according to the Chaplain’s Office. But you still have time to make your contibution. The campaign is scheduled to continue through Aug. 31. “We have a goal of 73,000 pounds this year,” said NASP Command Chaplain Steven “Todd” Orren. Last year, NASP was able to collect 65,670 pounds of food for Manna Food Bank. Donations at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) totaled 2,000 pounds of food for the Bay Area Food Bank, Milton location. The Feds Feed Families food drive campaign grew out of the Serve America Act that created “United We Serve,” an initiative that urged Americans to con-

tribute to the nation’s economic recovery by helping their communities. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Chief Human Capital Council are managing the campaign. Feds Feeds Families encourages federal employees to bring nonperishable and household items to their offices for distribution to local food banks. This year’s theme is “Each One Give One.” Last year, the combined total for all federal agencies in the 2012 campaign was 7.2 million pounds, and donations have totaled 15.2 million pounds since the program began in 2009. There is no government-wide collection goal for 2013. Donation locations aboard NASP are at the Chaplain’s Office in Bldg. 634 and at the Quarterdeck in Bldg. 1500. Donations are also being collected aboard Corry Station at the chapel, the Navy Exchange and the commissary. Donations aboard NASWF are being collected at the commissary.

Culture of physical fitness contagious at CEODD Story, photo by Lt. j.g. Elizabeth Allen CEODD PAO

The culture of physical fitness in the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Navy diver communities motivated one civilian employee working at the Center for Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Diving (CEODD) to get fit, stay in shape, and compete in a weight lifting competition recently. Roland Deale, training specialist at CEODD, began lifting weights two-and-a-half years ago – the same time he began working at the center. “There is a strong culture of fitness here at CEODD and the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Command (NDSTC), and being around it gave me a motivating reason to work out and keep healthy,” said Deale. “EOD technicians and Navy divers work out a lot; it’s part of their job and their lifestyle, and part of that has rubbed off on me.” Deale received assistance and motivation from several of his co-workers in Panama City, including HM2 Joshua Godsey, stationed at NDSTC. Deale began seriously training for the competition approximately 10 weeks before the event, working out for two hours after work every day with 15 minutes of

Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) Southeast awarded a $16 million contract Aug. 14 to Whitesell-Green Inc., a small business in Pensacola, for construction of a Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) Mission Control Complex (MCC) at Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax). “This project will bring state-of-the-art technology that will enable American and Allied warriors around the world to best provide Operational Commanders the real time information they require to fight and win,” said Commander Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 11 (CPRW-11) Commodore Capt. Eric S. Wiese. The BAMS MCC, which will fall under control of CPRW-11 based at NAS Jax, will be fully integrated into the mission of Wing 11, and is seen as a welcome addition to broad area maritime surveillance, explained Wiese. The work to be performed on this project includes construction of a new freestanding twostory structure with two electromagnetic interference shielded mission control systems, a tactical operations center with sensitive compartmented information facility spaces, and numerous roof-top mounted antennas. The project will renovate some interior spaces; the renovations include a reconfigured

For renters: Maximizing the return of your deposit By Lt. Courtney Gordon-Tenant Legal Assistance Attorney, Region Legal Service Office Southeast, Corpus Christi

W

hether you stay in the military a few years or make it a career, chances are you will be moving a few times in your lifetime. For renters, careful planning prevents heavy deductions of your deposit with your landlord after you have moved out. The following tips will help you avoid common pitfalls. Before you sign the dotted line … First, if you are a prospective tenant, you may consider having a legal assistance attorney review your lease before you sign it. Sometimes unscrupulous landlords try to sneak in items such as waiver of your military rights through an early termination fee, they may make you responsible for some landscaping, or require you to have the carpets professionally cleaned. The last two provisions are not illegal, but the point is to be informed so you avoid unpleasant surprises with your lease obligations. See if there is a military clause within your lease. If you sign a year-long lease, but you are moving due to military or deployment orders for at least 90 days, you may break the

lease with proper written notice. Keep a copy of your lease. As soon as you get the orders, you need to provide your landlord with a copy and state that you are terminating your lease. This notice may be delivered by hand, private business carrier, or mailed, return receipt requested to the address designated by the landlord. If you have an e-mail address for your landlord, I recommend emailing the written notice with the orders as well in case your return receipt gets misplaced during your move. Bottom line: Oral notice is insufficient and does not require the landlord to let you out of the lease. When is the notice of termination effective? Let’s say you have a yearlong lease from Jan. 1, 2013 to Dec. 31, 2013. Let’s assume that the first day of the lease is the first day of the month.

Once proper notification has been provided to the landlord, the effective date of termination for a property lease that requires monthly payments of rent is 30 days after the first date on which the next rental payment is due. If you give written notice (with your orders) July 1, then you will only have to pay for July; 30 days after July 1 is July 31. But if you wait until July 2 to give written notice, under the Servicemember’s Civil Relief Act (SCRA) your notice is effective Aug. 1 and you are responsible until Aug. 31. (This is an additional month of financial liability for just a day’s delay.) Finally, don’t forget about providing notice to the utility companies and paying off those as well. What if I can do I don’t have orders? Understand that the landlord doesn’t need to legally let you out of the lease without your orders. But don’t lose heart. First, see if state law offers you additional protections. Some states may allow you to break your lease with other official military documentation, such a letter from your commanding officer. If state law doesn’t help, it’s still worth talking to the landlord. Some are reasonable and willing to accommodate service members. But the bottom line is that they are concerned about their regular income (i.e. rent) coming in. If you are able to find a reputable

tenant to replace you (and ask the landlord for permission first), you stand a better chance of getting out of your lease. Keep in mind if this tenant defaults on the lease, the landlord may still be able to come after you for the rest of the rent. So choose wisely. Prove how it looked when you left – take pictures. Finally, on the day you move out, take pictures of how you left your rental and e-mail them to your landlord and yourself. If your lease requires landscaping, take pictures of this as well. Countless tenants say they left their rental in spotless condition but have no proof to back this up. Taking pictures will avoid your word against your landlord if he or she comes back with a heavy deduction from your deposit. If possible, do a walk-through with your landlord. In conclusion, give your landlord a copy of your orders with your written notice of termination by certified mail and/or e-mail. If orders are not yet available, see if state law allows you to break the lease with other military documentation (i.e. a letter from your CO). Keep a copy of this along with the original lease and take pictures on the day you vacate. This proof will help you dispute allegations from your landlord. You can also request further descriptions and/or proof if the deductions are vague, or you may have to ul-

timately file in small claims court if the matter cannot be resolved. By following these steps, you will be better prepared and will hopefully avoid these difficulties altogether. Keep in mind if you receive military orders to another command in the same area you currently live in, you may not be able to break this lease. It is also worth seeing what the state law says. Sometimes states provide additional protections beyond the SCRA. If you need legal advice, you can contact the NAS Pensacola Region Legal Service Office at 161 Turner St., Bldg. 624, Suite B, second deck. The phone number is 452-3730.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio tours NavScolEOD Story, photo by Lt. j.g. Elizabeth Allen Center for Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Diving Public Affairs

GLIN AIR FORCE BASE (NNS) – Naval School Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NavScolEOD) welcomed U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio for a familiarization tour of the school and several of its practical training areas Aug. 14. Rubio was greeted by the commanding officer of the school, Capt. William Noel, and then viewed the EOD Memorial located across from the Kauffman EOD Training Complex, where a brief history of the school and memorial were discussed. The tour continued past the current military construction project at NavScolEOD, which includes the establishment of training spaces for divisions that are currently housed in temporary facilities, improvements to utility infrastructure, enhancements to security, and doubling the size of the dining facility. “The jobsite that we are facing is the Core Division instructional building at approximately 16,900 square feet, which is one of two state-of-the-art instruc-

tional facilities for the betterment of mission essential training,” said Lt. Donald Bowen, assistant public works officer at NavScolEOD. “The second building is a 29,300square-foot instructional building to house the Ground and Tools and Methods Divisions, followed by a new 6,800square-foot addition to the existing dining hall.” Observing some of the primary tools in the Improvised Explosive Device Division was the next stop on the tour. Rubio was briefed by the officer in charge of the division and an instructor on the importance of the EOD robot and use of the bomb suit. After trying on an 80 pound bomb suit, the tour continued to the Demolition Division, where non-

commissioned officer in charge Gunnery Sgt. Matthew Small discussed his division and they safely detonate explosives from a remote area. “This is a 14-day division where we teach the basics of demolition, how to put it all together and how to make sure it’s safe,” said Small. “When we initiate an explosion, size and environment dictates how far away we need to be.” Following the explana-

tion, Rubio cleared the range, shouted, “Fire in the hole” and initiated a detonation. The last stop on the tour was lunch at the school galley, where Rubio spent time discussing the school and military with several students. “Time and again in this country we’ve sent brave young men and women like yourselves abroad to secure other people’s freedoms, and then turn their

country over to them to come back home and take care of ours,” said the senator, to a galley filled with EOD students and staff. “You’re on the front lines of that and there is nothing I can say to express my gratitude. I want to thank all of you on behalf of the people of Florida.” NavScolEOD, located on Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. provides high-risk, specialized, basic and advanced EOD training to

MCPON talks CPO 365; Phase I, Phase II and the stand down By Defense Media ActivityNavy

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Mike Stevens recently took a moment to answer questions from the fleet about executing the first year of CPO 365. CPO 365 is a year round training initiative that chiefs messes throughout the Navy take on to prepare first class petty officers to become chiefs. Phase II of CPO 365 begins when the chief petty officer selection board results are released, which occurred Aug. 1. Q: Many commands have truly embraced CPO 365, and have viewed this year as really being the first year that the program has found its legs, what do you think of the program as a whole? A: I am very pleased with the process. I am not taking any-

thing away from the training we have used in the past because it worked well for during its time. Society has changed and evolved, and if we want to continue to have the ability to train our reliefs, we must change and evolve as well. I think if you ask any CPO mess that has been and is fully engaged in CPO 365, you'll find that each mess is brainstorming new and innovative ways to train our First Class Petty Officers to take their place. Q: Many of the Sailors participating in CPO 365 are not even eligible for chief, some won’t be eligible for three years, what do you want those Sailors to take away from the program each year? A: There’s enough change that occurs within our Navy every year that CPO 365 should never get old and stagnant. Think about our Navy programs, procedures and policies,

they are constantly evolving. CPO 365 is first and foremost about helping a first class petty officer be the best work center supervisor or leading petty officer that they can be because the Navy is forever evolving. The training will always change, day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year. If first class petty officers and chief petty officers find themselves re-hashing the same old information time and time again, they must look within themselves to determine where the updates need to take place and effectively make the change. Q: For those Sailors who saw their names on the list, what do you think CPO 365 has done to prepare them for their anchors? A: I think that CPO 365 has provided professional and solid training that these future leaders

Support Our Troops

need in order to be effective Chiefs. CPO 365 Phase II is an opportunity for our First Class Petty Officers to display to the CPO Mess the skill-sets that they learned during Phase I. Q: Talk about the CPO 365 stand down ... A: I received two letters alleging that inappropriate conduct is taking place during CPO 365 Phase II. Upon initial look, I think that we have a few CPO messes operating outside of CPO 365 Guidance. I directed all CPO messes to stop training from (Aug.12) and resume on Aug.14. This gave commands and all CPO messes a chance to review CPO 365 Guidance and the Navy’s policy on hazing. We should never think that we are above the law, if we think that CPO selectee training cannot be shut down – we are wrong. If we want to be responsible for training our future

chiefs then we must do it in a professional manner. I want to reemphasize – I believe that the large majority of the mess is doing the right thing and for that I want to thank you, however, know that any formal complaints will be fully investigated. Q: In your opinion, is CPO 365 the best way to train the Navy’s future leadership? Why? A: At this particular point of time in our history, I believe CPO 365 provides us with the best training opportunity. However, I am also confident that in time CPO 365 will also change because that’s what we do, we constantly evolve. I’ll be a retired MCPON years from now and there will be a new name, a new process, and new way of doing business to train our chiefs. I’ll trust that it was put in place because the times that our future Sailors will serve necessitate that.

Strike Fighter Squadron 101 granted ‘interim safe for flight;’ completes first flight in Navy F-35C Lightning II From Commander, Naval Air Forces

SAN DIEGO (NNS) – Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 101, the Navy’s first F-35C Lightning II carrier variant aircraft squadron, completed its first flight Aug. 14 in its new aircraft at the squadron’s home at Eglin Air Force Base near Niceville, Fla.

The 1.3 hour flight was made by VFA-101 naval aviator Lt. Cmdr. Chris Tabert. The flight followed a decision by Commander, Naval Air Force, Pacific, Vice Adm. David Buss Aug. 8 granting the Fleet Replacement Squadron “interim safe for flight” status. “The Lightning II strike fighter represents the future business end of our nuclear

powered aircraft carrier force, the embarked carrier air wing,” said Buss. “The men and women of VFA-101 are now cleared to take the first steps toward that future as they operate these amazing Navy aircraft and train the aviators who will fly them.” “VFA-101’s achievement of the Interim Safe For Flight (ISFF) criteria constitutes a

significant milestone in the introduction of the F-35C Lightning II into the fleet,” said Capt. Mark Black, commander, Strike Fighter Wing, Pacific. “VFA-101 will now begin to schedule and perform sorties under their own charter from their facilities at Eglin AFB. This will permit the reestablished Grim Reapers to begin training for the original flight instructor cadre that will teach future F-35C pilots in the intricacies of mastering the Navy’s first fifth-generation fighter.” The squadron received the Navy’s first F-35C from Lockheed Martin June 22. Today’s flight was the first in the new Navy aircraft flown by a VFA101 pilot at Eglin. “The first flight of Grim Reaper 102 today is the acme of many years hard work and planning by the Sailors of VFA-101 and our Lockheed Martin partners and is an exciting first step in introducing the Navy’s first fifth-generation fighter to fleet,” said VFA-101Commanding Officer Capt. John Enfield. “Now that we’re flying, we will be able to validate and evaluate both the pilot and maintainer syllabi as we train the initial cadre of instructors.” VFA-101 is the F-35C Fleet Replacement Squadron, training Navy aircrew and maintenance personnel to fly and repair the F-35C, a fifth-generation fighter that combines advanced stealth with fighter speed and agility, fully fused sensor information, network-

enabled operations and advanced sustainment. “The interim safe for flight will begin in earnest the training of the U.S. Navy personnel in how to maintain this impressive new aircraft,” said Black. “Proficient Lockheed Martin technicians will lead Sailors in verifying prescribed maintenance procedures that will ultimately be converted into a robust syllabus that will permit future Navy maintenance personnel to develop the skills necessary to ensure and sustain the flight integrity of the aircraft. Designating VFA101 as interim safe for flight signifies that the Navy F-35C has begun its service in naval aviation for real.” The F-35C will enhance the flexibility, power projection, and strike capabilities of carrier air wings and joint task forces and will complement the capabilities of the F/A18E/F Super Hornet, which currently serves as the Navy's premier strike fighter. By 2025, the Navy’s aircraft carrier-based air wings will consist of a mix of the F-35C, F/A-18E/F Super Hornets, EA18G Growler, E-2D Hawkeye, Unmanned Carrier Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike air vehicles, MH-60R/S helicopters and Carrier Onboard Delivery logistics aircraft.

NASWF re-certified as ‘StormReady’ By Ens. Emily Hegarty NASWF PAO

T

he National Weather Service once again recognized Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) as an installation ready to weather nature’s worst. The National Weather Service (NWS) StormReady re-certification recognized Whiting Field’s re-commitment to severe weather preparedness through advanced planning, education and enhanced awareness. The program sets national standards for storm warnings and advanced communication systems. Established in 1998 by the NWS Forecast Office in Tulsa, Okla., StormReady is a voluntary program that provides clear-cut advice in order to create an infrastructure to save lives and property by improving local hazardous weather operations and response. StormReady’s website explains that while ample laws and regulations exist to help deal with emergencies such as material spills and medical crises, there is a shortage of guidance in how communities should deal with and prepare for hazardous weather operations. The StormReady program was designed to fill this void, and aims to help communities implement procedures to reduce the potential for disastrous, weather-related consequences, as well as to better prepare for and mitigate effects of extreme weather-related events. In order to become certified as StormReady, the installation must establish a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center, have

more than one method of receiving severe weather warnings and alerting the public, create a system that monitors local weather conditions, and develop a formal hazardous weather plan, which includes holding exercises and training severe weather spotters. Additionally, the certification requires community preparedness activities, including the promotion of the significance of public readiness through community seminars, annual safety talks, hurricane season briefs, CNIC-mandated ready Navy preparedness training, and a Whiting Pines community briefing. A preparedness inspection culminated in a formal exercise that tested NAS Whiting Field’s receiving and warning alert systems. NAS Whiting Field is currently listed as one of 56 StormReady-certified military sites in the country. AB1 Jason Alter and ABCM Paul Harper have been working together as NAS Whiting Field’s emergency management team since early July to ensure that the base was prepared to meet current certification qualifica-

tions. Since the base’s initial certification in 2010, these qualification standards have changed, requiring upgrades such as 24-hour notification capability. Alter and Harper are currently in the process of training CDOs on computer and phone notification practices that ensure that base notification of impending severe weather can be passed along to all base personnel as quickly as possible. Alter stressed that the program addresses weather concerns of all sorts. “We’re involved in notification of weather-related hazards beyond simply hurricanes and thunderstorms – we’re also concerned with marine weather warnings, tornadoes, floods, fires, anything that’s a potential threat to safety,” he said. Whiting Field’s certification ascertains that it has met the National Weather Service standard on ensuring its population is aware, or can be notified of, any weather related hazards as soon as they are discovered or declared. But it’s important to remember that notification is just the first step.

John Ogren, manager for StormReady at the National Weather Service, explains on the program’s website why a StormReady certification is not only relevant, but crucial. “As the public becomes more acquainted with severe storms and the often-deadly impacts they bring, the only way to save lives is through preparedness and communication. When the NWS issues a severe weather warning, the goal of StormReady is to make sure everybody knows about it, they know what to do, they do it and live,” Ogren said. Alter noted that while

timely notification of an emergency weather situation is crucial, individual preparedness plays a vital role in how a weather emergency can affect someone. Alter recommends taking steps at home to ensure that you and your family are prepared in the event of an emergency. “Listen to evacuation orders,” he emphasized. “Low-lying areas can be prone to flood surge, and the category of the storm doesn’t necessarily relate to how bad it’s actually going to be. The size of the storm can sometimes be more important. “Have a plan and be

prepared. Once a quarter, review your pantry and kit, check expiration labels, even on so-called non-perishable food items – even canned food has an expiration date. Have enough prescription medication to last a week,” Alter said. “When hurricanes Ivan and Dennis came through, the I10 bridge was out and we had minimal outside support even after the storm had cleared. Ensure that you have a way to take care of yourself because the whole community will be trying to recover as well.” As Alter summed up, “a little preparation goes a long way.”

Battle of Mobile Bay the

From www.nps.gov

U

nder the early light of dawn, Aug. 5, 1864, Union Adm. David Farragut began his attack on Mobile Bay, Ala.

Aware of the danger near Fort Morgan, Farragut ordered his captains to stay to the “eastward of the easternmost buoy” because it was “understood that there are torpedoes and other obstructions between the buoys.” Unfortunately, the lead ironclad, the USS Tecumseh, unable to avoid the danger, struck a mine and sank into the ocean’s depths. Yet, against all odds, the seasoned admiral ordered his flagship, the Hartford, and his fleet to press forward through the underwater minefield and into Mobile Bay. Although Farragut was a champion of the “wooden Navy,” he agreed to include four new ironclad ships modeled after the USS Monitor in his attack fleet. It was widely believed that these warships were unsinkable. But the Tecumseh indeed sank that summer morning, unexpectedly killing the majority of its crew and demonstrating the deadly effects of advances in technology such as the torpedo. For in the words of one Confederate soldier reminiscing on the ill-fated ship, “She careens, her bottom appears! Down, down, down she goes to the bottom of the channel, carrying 150 of her crew, confined within her ribs, to a watery grave.”

‘Damn the torpedoes. Four bells, Capt. Drayton. Go ahead, Jouett, full speed.’ Setting the stage Though the most famous battles of the Civil War occurred on land, from the beginning both sides recognized that control of the seas would be crucial. This was due to the agriculturally based Southern economy that relied on shipping to receive goods and supplies. Once the Civil War began, President Abraham Lincoln ordered a blockade of Southern ports. The South responded to the North’s strategy by “blockade running,” which became the only way the Confederate states could supply themselves with direly needed wares. Ships filled with goods – some for the war effort, others for Southern consumers – left Nassau, the Bahamas; Havana, Cuba; the West Indies and Bermuda attempting to sneak by the Union Navy. However, the Union Navy succeeded in closing many harbors such as Mobile, which was deep enough to accommodate large ships. The U.S. Navy had to grow rapidly to perform its roles. Though in 1861 it consisted of just 42 warships, by 1865 it had grown to 675 vessels. The North converted ships originally designed for other functions, such as whalers and tugs, and built others from scratch, many of which adopted the latest technology. The most famous example of innovation was the ironclad or “monitor” ships, which

Davidson, 1886, depicting the Union and Confederate squadrons at the moment that USS Tecumseh sank after striking a mine (“torpedo”). Confederate ships (left foreground) are Morgan, Gaines and Tennessee. Union monitors visible astern of Tecumseh are Manhattan and Winnebago.

were named after the first vessel of its kind. The USS Monitor and subsequent, similar warships were armored with iron plate that was supposed to make them hard to sink. Union warships gradually added other features, including steam engines and more powerful guns. To counteract the Union Navy, the Confederates introduced a new weapon, which they called a “torpedo.” Torpedoes were cheap, easily produced underwater mines that could seriously damage or sink ironclad ships. The Union’s armored ships and the Confederate’s torpedoes dashed in combat during the summer of 1864 at Mobile Bay. In July, Adm. Farragut prepared to lead the Union Navy in an attack on Fort Morgan, which guarded the mouth of Mobile Bay. In the previous two years he had seized New Orleans and Galveston, Texas, and he was now ready to close the last major port still available to blockade runners on the Gulf of Mexico. The Battle of Mobile Bay Blockade running became so important to the South that one historian called it “the lifeline of the Confederacy.” Successful blockade-runners helped the South receive much-needed goods, while the ships’ crews and owners received rich rewards to compensate for the risks taken. However, the risks were great. If the Union captured a ship, it became Union property and its captain would spend the rest of the war in a Union prison. The North continued to gain advantage as the war continued. By 1863, large blockade runners could only operate in and out of Wilmington, N.C.; Charleston, S.C.; Mobile and Galveston. Southern ocean trade dropped to one-third of its original level, and the Confederacy began running out of clothing, weapons and other supplies. To counter the Union Navy, especially the ironclads, the Confederates began to employ the torpedo, which became very controversial. Before the Civil War, explosive devices had been floated toward enemy ships, but these could be seen on the surface allowing time for reaction.

Torpedoes, on the other hand, remained hidden below the water, which provoked complaints from the North that no civilized country would use an “invisible” weapon. All of these issues converged at the Battle of Mobile Bay, when Adm. Farragut’s fleet moved into the torpedofilled Mobile Bay. The fleet included 14 wooden ships, four monitors (the Tecumseh, Manhattan, Winnebago and Chickasaw), as well as several gunboats that stayed nearby if needed. As the fleet neared Fort Morgan, the Tecumseh hit a torpedo and quickly sank. This loss did not stop the Union attack. Seeing what was happening, Farragut ordered his fleet to press forward through the underwater minefield into Mobile Bay. The 13 other ships made it past Fort Morgan, then, after some resistance, forced the Confederate ships in the bay to surrender or flee. In the next three weeks, fire from Farragut’s vessels and the Union Army finally forced the defenders of Fort Morgan to surrender (Aug. 23, 1864). Though the city of Mobile would remain in Confederate hands into 1865, the port was now closed to blockade runners. This victory brought a tremendous boost to Northern spirits, but at a high cost. Monitors were widely believed to be unsinkable – yet it took the Tecumseh just two minutes to go down. In the end, only 21 of the 114 men aboard escaped death.

Color Me ‘Under blockade’

No countersign ... When food was scarce, many Soldiers would steal or pillage nearby farms for anything that could be converted to food or drink. One evening an officer smelled roast pork and upon investigating he found a pig roasting over a camp fire. “Who are the Soldiers that stole this pig?” he asked the group. A corporal came to attention and said, "Sir, I was on picket duty when I heard a noise and I called out for the password. All I heard was ‘oink’ and that is not the countersign, so I fired my rifle. We were just about to bring this trespasser to your tent for court martial and have you pass judgment on him.” The officer, suppressing a smile, said, “Bring only a part of him; I will pass a partial sentence.”

The bayonet ... A Soldier who had lost his bayonet whittled one from wood so he could stand inspection. At one inspection, an officer suddenly asked to see his bayonet. The Soldier answered, “Sir, I promised my father I would never unsheathe my bayonet unless I intended to use it.” The officer insisted he hand over the bayonet. Taking it out, the Soldier looked skyward and declared, “May the Almighty change this bayonet to wood for breaking my vow.”

Naval training command HQ awards outstanding performance By Ens. Jacqui Wengler NETC PAO

N

aval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced the selection of its Junior and Senior Civilians of the Quarter and recognized six people for their length of service during a ceremony recently at the Naval Aviation Medical Institute (NAMI) auditorium onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. Training Program Analyst Angie McDonough was selected as NETC’s Senior Civilian of the Quarter (CoQ), second quarter 2013, for her work supporting policy formulation, automation and technical support for the Production Data Management Branch of the Learning and Development Division. McDonough ensures the education and training programs meet the fleet’s requirements. “I was very surprised,” said McDonough. “But my spotlight does not come by my own merits. I have 17 team members

who contributed to my success and I am forever indebted to them for thinking so highly of me.” One of McDonough’s accomplishments this past year has been administering procedural changes to eliminate backlogs associated with her department assuming the management of Corporate Enterprise Training Activity Resource Systems (CeTARS). Since October 2012, the workload volume has continued to increase, but McDonough successfully reached a manageable workload for her branch by March of

this year. Paula Bares was selected as the command’s Junior CoQ. Bares has served in the administration department for four years and is the Personnel Administrative Support System (PASS) coordinator for the military staff at NETC as well as the Naval Service Training Command (NSTC) Officer Development directorate, which is co-located with NETC. She was recognized for the care and attention to detail she gives to assist Sailors with their pay and personnel actions.

“It’s been a nice morale boost that my supervisors thought to nominate me, and I’m very thankful I was selected,” said Bares. Commending Bares for her hard work and commitment to the NETC mission, Jackie Stoltz, Administration Services Officer, said “Bares’ tenacity in taking care of her customers allows them to focus on meeting the NETC mission of training Sailors and preparing them for fleet operations.” In addition to the Civilian of the Quarter awards, six individuals were recognized for their length of

federal service. Larry Reaves, a program analyst who works in the NETC Training Systems Integration office, was recognized for his 15 years of service. Recognized for 25 years of service was Peggy Land, financial management analyst for the Execution Section Branch in the Resources, Requirements and Assessment Division. Also recognized for 25 years of service was Steve Vanderwerff, Social Media Officer for the NETC Public Affairs Department. Lewis Capehart serves as the manpower

and manning analyst in the Total Force Manpower Division and was recognized for 30 years of federal service. Also recognized for 30 years of service was Donald Christian, operations analyst for the Development Planning Analysis Division. Receiving the Secretary of the Navy (SecNav) Career Service Award was James Kight, supply policy specialist for the logistics and supply department.

Vet to talk about Guadalcanal From Marine Corps League, J.R. Spears Detachment 066

A veteran of the Guadalcanal campaign will discuss his experiences in World War II as part of the “Heroes Among Us” series at Veterans Memorial Park on Bayfront Parkway in Pensacola. Bob Bazet, a lance corporal who served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1942 to 1945, will speak at 6 p.m. Aug. 30. The Guadalcanal campaign involved numerous battles between American forces and Japanese soldiers in and around Guadalcanal, an island in the Pacific Ocean. It extended from August 1942 to February 1943 and cost the lives of thousands of troops. Guadalcanal was the Allies’ first major victory over the Japanese, who had surprised the Americans with an attack on

Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Bazet’s talk is the fourth in a series of six gatherings scheduled at the park on the last Friday of each month. The talks are designed to boost understanding of military experiences and showcase the experiences of people who have served in combat. The gatherings are free and open to the public. Light food and water will be provided; participants are urged to bring chairs or blankets. In case of rain, the event will be held at Gulf Coast Community Bank, 40 North Palafox St. The talks are sponsored by the local Marine Corps League J.R. Spears Detachment 066. Donations will be accepted for the Marine Corps League’s “Marines in Distress” fund for veterans in need.

Sharing traditions of Japan Bon Fest Pensacola features drums, kimonos, folk dances and sushi From Bon Fest Pensacola

A taste of summer fun from old Japan is coming to Bayview Community Center, 2000 East Lloyd St., from noon to 4 p.m. Aug. 24. Bon Fest Pensacola 2013 is based on the Obon festivals in Japan, which celebrate family and folk traditions. This is the seventh year for the event, which was started by Pensacola artist Hatsue Miki. This year’s event will feature a performance and workshop by the Matsuriza Taiko Drummers. Visitors also will be able to try on colorful kimonos and learn how to do Japanese folk dances. Japanese arts and crafts will be on sale, and there will be a “Kids’ Land” with activities. There will be Japanese treats ranging from shaved ice to sushi.

Admission is free. The festival is supported by the Consulate of Japan, the Japan-America Society of Northwest Florida, Hilton Garden Inns, the Pensacola Department of Parks and Recreation, the Matsuriza Taiko Drums, the University of West Florida Japan House and BonFest Pensacola. In Japan, the traditional summer celebration is called Bon Odori. Bon Odori is more than just eating, drinking and dancing. Obon or Bon is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one’s ancestors. Pensacola’s BonFest is planned as a way to introduce traditional Japanese cultural perspectives and to build intercultural relations by bringing together people from across cultural and social backgrounds.

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; go to www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247 CONUS; (202) 470-5546 OCONUS (may be additional charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to 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 a victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services and safety interventions such as a Military Protective Order (MPO), separation from offender, expedited transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim can report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), SARC, and his/her CO shall commence an investigation. Restricted reporting allows a confidential report, which does not trigger either command nor law enforcement notification and the victim can have a SAPR VA, and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim can disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care provider and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 VA, call 449-9231/2. To contact the SARC during working hours, call 452-5990, ext. 0; or during and after working hours, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
