The future USS Tripoli (LHA 7), the U.S. Navy’s latest America-class amphibious assault ship, will be commissioned in Pensacola, according to recent Facebook posts from Commander Naval Surface Forces U.S. Pacific Fleet (https:// www.facebook. com/SurfaceWarriors) and the Tripoli’s official page (https://www. facebook.com/OfficialUSSTripoli). The actual date is projected for the fall of 2019, depending on construction schedules. “The future USS Tripoli (LHA 7) moves one step closer to the fleet with the selection of Pensacola, Fla. to host the commissioning ceremony in late 2019,” the announcement read. “Upon commissioning, USS Tripoli will be the newest America-class amphibious assault ship to join the Surface Force. “Tripoli will be the third US warship to bear that name and

was christened during a ceremony on Sept. 16, 2017 at Huntington Ingalls Industries in Pascagoula, Miss.” In the Aug. 15 issue of the ship’s publication The Shores, Capt. Kevin P. Meyers shared his thoughts on the selection. “Pensacola, Florida has been selected as our commissioning city, and a formal announcement will be made with a kickoff event Aug. 23. “Pensacola is a phenomenal city with great people and great food, and it’s also home to our Blue Angels,” Meyers wrote. “We are expecting our commissioning ceremony to be in the fall of 2019, but schedules can always shift in the new construction process. We will keep you updated as we make more progress toward our ship trials.” U.S. Navy Fact File (http:// www.navy.mil/navydata/fact_ displayasp?cid=4200&ct=4& tid=400) provides some backSee Tripoli on page 2

Air Force women win 2018 Armed Forces Women’s Softball Title onboard NAS Pensacola Story by Steven Dinote U.S. Armed Forces Sports

Even the weather was not enough to prevent Air Force from capturing their second straight Armed Forces Women’s Softball Championship held here at Barrancas Ball Fields, NAS Pensacola, Fla. from Aug. 15 to 17. Soaring through the competition, Air Force posted a 6 to 3 record during the triple round robin tournament, outscoring their opponents 96 to 81. Led by coach Michael Richardson of Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland AFB, Texas, Air Force sealed the

title after defeating Army 15 to 4 and Marine Corps 20 to 6 in the final round. With a disappointing third place finish in 2017, Army captured silver after compiling a 5 to 4 record. In their best showing in 10 years, Marine Corps dominated the Navy winning all three games and threatened the Army’s chance for silver. Marines placed third overall with a 4 to 5 record. Host Navy finished fourth with a record of 3 to 6, with all wins coming against the champion Air Force. Heavy downpours plagued this year’s championship, causing multiple delays and threatened to cancel the tournament. With luck, the sky cleared enough to fit

in the final games to close out the 2018 championship. During the awards ceremony, the 11-player AllTournament Team was selected based on the top players of this year’s championship. Based on player availability, the 15-player U.S. Women’s Armed Forces Softball Team was selected, led by winning Air Force Coach Mr. Michael Richardson of Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland AFB, Texas. The U.S. Armed Forces team will compete in the USA Softball Women’s Open Championship in Portland Oregon from Aug. 25 to 26.

Tripoli from page 1 ground on USS Tripoli and other amphibious asault ships: “Modern U.S. Navy Amphibious Assault Ships project power and maintain presence by serving as the cornerstone of the amphibious ready group (ARG)/expeditionary strike group (ESG). A key element of the Sea Power 21 pillars of Sea Strike and Sea Basing, these ships transport and land elements of the Marine expeditionary unit (MEU) or Marine expeditionary brigade (MEB) with a combination of aircraft and landing craft “The America-class LHAs and Wasp-class LHDs provide the Marine Corps with a means of ship-to-shore movement by helicopter in addition to movement by landing craft. LHAs (and later LHDs) have been participants in major humanitarian-assistance, occupation and combat operations in which the United States has been involved. Such operations have included participating as launch platforms for Marine Corps expeditionary forces into Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom in 2001 and 2002, Iraq in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 and humanitarian support after the catastrophic Tsunami in 2004. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, two LHDs served as “Harrier carriers,” launching an air group of AV-8B attack aircraft against targets inside Iraq. In 2004, LHDs were used to transport thousands of Marines and their equipment to Iraq and Afghanistan for combat operations. Post Hurricane Katrina support was provided in New Orleans by LHD 7 (Iwo Jima) where thousands of police, fire and rescue personnel were hosted aboard during recovery operations and Iwo Jima operated as the central command and control hub. “USS America (LHA 6), along with the future USS Tripoli (LHA 7), are LHD variants optimized for aviation capability. The propulsion plant and electrical distribution and auxiliary systems designed and built for USS Makin Island are also used aboard USS America and future USS Tripoli, the first ships in the LHA Replacement Program. USS America was delivered to the U.S. Navy April 10, 2014 and the future USS Tripoli is currently under construction at Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) in Pascagoula, Miss. and is expected to join the fleet in 2019. LHA 6 and LHA 7, commonly referred to as Flight 0 ships, contain key differences from the LHD class to include: an enlarged hangar deck, enhanced aviation maintenance facilities, increased aviation fuel capacity, additional aviation storerooms, removal of the well deck and an electronically reconfigurable C4ISR suite. On June 30, 2016, HII was awarded a contract for planning, advanced engineering and procurement of long lead time material. An option for the detail design and construction of LHA 8 was awarded in June 2017, which will be the first Flight I ship, and will reincorporate a well deck to increase operational flexibility. The USS America (LHA 6) class ships replace the original five Tarawa-class LHAs, which have all been decommissioned. USS Belleau Wood (LHA 3) was decommissioned in October 2005, followed by USS Saipan (LHA 2) in April 2007, USS Tarawa (LHA 1) in March 2009, USS Nassau (LHA 4) in March 2011 and USS Peleliu (LHA 5) in March 2015. “Amphibious warships are designed to support the Marine Corps tenets of Operational Maneuver From the Sea (OMFTS) and Ship to Objective Maneuver (STOM). They must be capable of sailing in harm’s way and enable rapid combat power buildup onshore in the face of opposition. Because of their inherent capabilities, these ships have been and will continue to be called upon to also support humanitarian and other contingency missions on short notice. The United States maintains the largest and most capable amphibious force in the world.”

Chad Smith said. “To that end, we have embarked upon an aggressive and continuous training path that aids in ensuring our staff and students are prepared to respond in the event of a hurricane or other major weather conditions that may transpire in the greater Pensacola area.” Although it has been very hot and humid during these drills, IWTC Corry Station students are very upbeat about their hurricane preparation training. “This is a total team effort,” SN Colleen Lopez said. “We are all making sure we are pulling our weight to be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store.” During one of the drills, while he and other students quickly formed a Sailor conveyor chain and loaded 150 sandbags into a truck, SN Jerome Goodman shared, “I am getting a good workout in and building camaraderie with my classmates at the same time.” National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasters have predicted a 35 percent chance of an above-normal season, a 40 percent chance of a near-normal season, and a 25 percent chance of below-normal season for this year.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer – Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer – Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher biplane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship. The image on the right side is one of the

Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented.

tropical storms range anywhere between 39 mph and 73 mph. A hurricane is divided into five categories and the category is based off how fast the wind is, starting at 74 mph and reaching 215 mph. IWTC Corry Station has shelter in place and evacuation plans that are determined by the category of the storm. It is not until a category 3 storm that the base would be evacuated and students are transferred to a safe location. For the staff that do not live on base, preparation is equally important. Staff are taught to know their risk due to storm surge, inland flooding and winds, and have an evacuation plan and disaster supply kit. “Our emergency management officer has done an excellent job in conducting evacuation drills with the purpose of identifying administrative and logistical ‘best practices’ while familiarizing staff and students with correct processes and procedures for dealing with ‘shelter-in-place’ or ‘evacuation’ scenarios that we may encounter during inclement weather this hurricane season,” Smith added.

What I learned about military life from watching the ‘soaps’ ing wife out of his will? Who will get the riches? And who will find love? “And now, another episode of ...” Yep, I will admit it. There was a period in my life when I watched the soaps. Off and on between 1995 and 2000, I spent a lot of time sitting on the couch watching TV in the middle of the day. No, I was not eating bonbons. I was a young Navy wife at home nursing our babies, and what could be a more fitting way to pass the time than watching a bit of “boob tube?” I found the soaps to be totally ludicrous, but surprisingly entertaining. Every soap opera character had been in a coma, was kidnapped, had amnesia, was switched with another baby at birth, came back from the dead, time traveled, and was cloned. I never took any of it seriously, although I am embarrassed to admit that I might have shed a tear or two when Bo married Fancy Face back in 1996. I tried watching talk shows while nursing for a while, but

By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist (Cue organ music.) (Distinguished male voiceover:) “In our last episode, publishing mogul Preston Thornton III was still in a coma as a result of the mysterious chandelier accident at his Bay City mansion. His evil twin sister Iris hatched a deal with Metropolitan Hospital’s Dr. Lucas Moore to keep Preston unconscious until they had time to fraudulently embezzle his fortune. “Meanwhile, Preston’s wife, Felicity, the genuine heir, fell in love with Dr. Moore while spending long hours in the hospital at her husband’s bedside. In a dramatic cliffhanger, Dr. Moore, Iris and Felicity found themselves in Preston’s hospital room, just as he opened his eyes and said to Felicity, ‘Who are you?’ “Does Preston have amnesia? Will Dr. Moore continue to plot with Iris, or will he follow his heart and pursue Felicity? Will Preston cut his cheat-

How to submit a commentary

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers, including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat a nd p ot a t o e s of l i fe.c o m . Sallie Jesse Raphael, Maury Povich and Jenny Jones just did not provide the escapism I was seeking during my homebound years as a young Navy mom. Except for that riveting episode when Maury inter-

viewed people who claimed to have been abducted by aliens. Now that my kids have all graduated from high school, I don’t have an excuse to sit on the couch in the middle of the day and watch soaps anymore. But as I enter a new empty nest phase of my life, I realize that those soap operas actually taught me an important life lesson. No, not to hatch a plot to steal the Quartermaine family fortune, or to create an evil clone of Reva Lewis or to confront devil-possessed Dr. Marlena Evans-Black at Brady’s Pub, or to fake my death while in a voodoo trance. Sure, the dramatic twists and turns can be hokey and unrealistic in the context of “General Hospital,” but the concept that “just about anything is possible” can be motivating to a young military spouse facing the tedious challenges of running a household alone. In a roundabout way, soap operas send the message, Forget your reality for a moment and realize that you can do whatever you set your mind to.

It is possible for me to shower in the morning. It is possible for me to exercise three days a week. It is possible for me to save more money. It is possible for me to cook something other than chicken nuggets for dinner. It is possible to send my spouse a care package once a month during deployments. It is possible for me to reach out to the new military spouse next door. It is possible for our family to go to church on Sunday. That is not fantasy. That is reality. Let’s face it, we only have “One Life to Live.” As for me, I will be a “Guiding Light” for “All My Children,” and teach them that, although they may feel “Young and Restless,” they should look for “The Bold and the Beautiful” things in life as they “Search for Tomorrow.” And “As the World Turns,” we should all spend “The Days of Our Lives” striving to be a little better each year. It is possible, because just about anything in the world is possible.

St. Louis’ Wilson defends America as a Navy information professional Story, photo by MC2 Taylor Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training

A

St. Louis native is stationed with a command responsible for teaching and delivering trained information warriors the skills required to defend America around the world. Cmdr. Patricia “Renée” Wilson has proudly served her country for 29 years, and works as an information professional (IP) officer operating out of the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) onboard NAS Pensacola Corry Station. A Navy IP is responsible for operating, maintaining, securing, planning and acquiring the naval network and the systems that support Navy operations and business processes. Their responsibilities also include mapping out the network platforms of the future; ensuring the effectiveness of the Navy technologies; helping to develop and deploy information systems, command and control, and space systems; and serving as a key part of the Information Dominance Corps in its mission to gain a deep understanding of the inner workings of adversaries and developing unmatched knowledge of the battlespace during wartime. Wilson currently serves as CIWT’s information technology/information professional training (N76) program manager. She leads a team charged with creating and updat-

ing foundational and advanced skills training for more than 10,000 Sailors in the information systems technician rating. “I take pride in ensuring that today’s Sailors are receiving the best training to become highly successful in their career and duties out in the fleet,” Wilson said. “The dedicated efforts of our N76 team members resulted in the American Council on Education recommending 58 semester college credit hours during their recent review of 11 CIWT courses, ultimately supporting Sailors’ continuing education.” Wilson’s command has been recognized as the Navy’s top learning center for the past two years, and charged with developing the future technical cadre of the information warfare community. With 1,200 military, civilian and contracted staff members, CIWT oversees about 200 courses at four information warfare training commands, two detachments and additional learning sites located throughout the United States and Japan. The CIWT domain leads, manages and delivers Navy and joint force train-

ing to 22,000 students annually. CIWT is responsible for training enlisted cryptologic technicians, information systems technicians, intelligence specialists and electronics technicians. CIWT also provides training to cryptologic warfare, information professional, intelligence and foreign area officers that prepares them to be ready to wage battle, and assure the nation’s success in this burgeoning warfare arena. “The CIWT team is successful because each of our domain members, like Cmdr. Wilson, is committed to our job of preparing Sailors to fight and win in the arena of information warfare,” Capt. Nick Andrews, CIWT’s commanding officer said. “I’m extremely proud of how her hard work and professionalism prepares our Sailors so they are ready for the Navy the nation needs.” Wilson also has military ties with family members who have previously served, and is honored to carry on the family tradition. Her father served in the Navy during the Vietnam War and her husband of 37 years served in the Navy for 24 years during campaigns including Op-

erations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Five of her siblings also served in the military, and two of her sons are currently on active duty in the Air Force. Originally an enlisted Sailor, Wilson earned a bachelor’s and master’s degrees from St. Leo University, and received her commission in 2002 through the Naval Direct Commissioned Officer Program. She commissioned as an aerospace engineering duty officer, and then changed career fields to information professional officer. She has supported numerous campaigns, including Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, the Global War on Terrorism, which included a

highly successful combat deployment to Iraq, where she managed around-theclock maintenance of four HH-60H Seahawk helicopters. Prior to reporting to CIWT, Wilson spent her off-duty hours mentoring Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets at Cleveland High School in St. Louis. “My naval service means that I am in a position to serve as a valuable role model for younger generations to emulate,” Wilson added. “I grew up in the inner city, graduating from Beaumont High School, and I’ve faced numerous challenges in my life, but I am proof that your circumstances in life do not have to define your

destiny.” As a member of one of the U.S. Navy’s most relied upon assets, Wilson and other Sailors and staff know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes, serving as a key part of the information warfare community in its mission to gain a deep understanding of the inner workings of adversaries and developing unmatched knowledge of the battlespace during wartime. These Sailors and staff have a tremendous responsibility in creating warfighting options for fleet commanders and advising decision-makers at all levels as they serve worldwide aboard ships, submarines and aircraft, and from the National Security Agency to the Pentagon. “Our CIWT Sailors truly are the best of the best, and Cmdr. Wilson is a superb example of the outstanding Sailors serving in today’s Navy,” CIWT’s Command Master Chief Mike Bates said. “Her dedicated efforts are why CIWT is recognized as the best learning center in the Navy and are indicative of today’s Navy team of world-class enlisted leaders molding fleet-ready Sailors for the Navy the nation needs.” CIWT delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

Navy announces rating modernization progress From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs WASHINGTON (NNS) – Navy released an update on the Sailor 2025 rating modernization’s four lines of effort (LOE): career fields, marketplace force management, advancement and credentialing in NAVADMIN 196/18, Aug. 13. The updates listed below provide a summary on the current status and way ahead of the four LOEs, but all personnel are strongly encouraged to read the NAVADMIN for greater detail on each topic. The alignment of Navy ratings into 23 career fields and 12 broad communities has provided a foundation for future development of more flexible and sustainable career paths for Sailors. In October 2017, and March and June of this year, three groups of more than 850 Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) codes were successfully converted to a new construct. More information about the revised NEC construct and communities and career fields can be found at www.public.navy. mil/bupers-npc/reference/nec/Pages/default.aspx. Driven by the urgent requirement to update and modernize personnel systems, the Navy began to expand career fields, in order to transform enlisted force community and career management in the future. A new “Navy Detailing Marketplace” is currently under development, through which the foundational elements of an automated personnel management system will tie Sailor enlistment directly to negotiations for a billet, which will then allow Sailors to reenlist or extend for that billet assignment. The marketplace will be a single system that uses the new NEC construct to better represent Sailors’ qualifications, experience, and performance in the form of a resume. The “Sailor Resume” function will be available in the future under “My Record” on

MyNavy Portal (MNP). Starting in fiscal year 2019, Sailors will be able to view all advertised billets for which they are qualified and to then submit a resume that includes: ASVAB scores, security clearance status, worldwide deployability, qualifications, evaluations, NECs earned, education degrees and training certifications. Ultimately, the resume function will provide the ability to better match Sailors to billets. Late in 2017, Navy senior enlisted leaders completed the first phase of the Advancement Exam Readiness Review (AERR) testing bank improvement plan by drafting advancement exam questions that match current and relevant ratingspecific technical requirements with the hands-on, real-world knowledge and experience needed in the Fleet. The establishment of the Professional Military Knowledge Eligibility Exam (PMK-EE) focuses the Navy Wide Advancement Exam (NWAE) on occupational knowledge and will serve as an eligibility requirement for advancement to paygrades E-4, E-5, E-6 and E-7.

PMK-EE will be delivered electronically, and will be available via the MyNavyPortal (MNP) website beginning in October 2018. The online Enlisted Advancement Worksheet (EAW), will automate the manual advancement processes and enable Sailors to review their worksheets before the exam and take charge of their advancement records. An EAW pilot, available through the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS), will be implemented with the Active Duty and Reserve spring 2019 advancement cycles. The Senior Enlisted Advancement to Vacancy (A2V) pilot was announced in June and will fill senior chief petty officer and master chief petty officer priority billets using a spot advancement incentive, and will lead enlisted advancement modernization for exceptional Sailors in all paygrades with critical NECs in the future. Navy Credentialing Opportunities OnLine (COOL) currently funds more than 2,700 certificates/licenses with opportu-

nities for Sailors in every rating. Navy COOL recently reduced the minimum service remaining on a Sailor’s enlistment contract to earn credentials from 12 to six months, and expanded opportunity for Sailors to earn credentials mapped to an academic degree or technical education certificate. Additionally, there are more opportunities for Sailors to maximize their Navy training and qualifications toward attainment of U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) licenses, to include funding the Transportation Worker Identification Card. These opportunities are highlighted in a dedicated “USCG National Maritime Center (NMC) Credentialing” tab for ratings with applicable USCG license alignment on the Navy COOL website. Sailors will be able to convert their military training records, billet assignment history and other credentialing data to a compatible civilian resume by the end of fiscal year 2019. Using those standardized data, Sailors can easily research information on civilian and federal occupations mapped to their ratings at www.cool.navy. mil/usn or via the Navy COOL app available on the Google Play store or iTunes. The goals for rating modernization are to provide greater choice and flexibility for Sailors with respect to detailing and training, to provide greater flexibility for the Navy in assigning highly trained personnel, and to increase professional alignment with civilian employers. Rating modernization supports Sailor 2025 initiatives through the goals of redefining career fields, improving talent management and the detailing process, offering more career choices, and expanding professional development opportunities. hese initiatives are intended to increase Fleet readiness, sustainability and fit.

Medium Hazard Moderate surf/ strong currents

From www.visitpensacolabeach.com

Swim with the lifeguards. It is always safest to “Swim With The Lifeguards.” Look for lifeguards, when they are on duty, at Casino Beach, Park East, Fort Pickens gate park and Quietwater Beach on Pensacola Beach, and Langdon Beach and Opal Beach within the Gulf Islands National Seashore areas. Lifeguard services. Looking out for your safety; the Santa Rosa Island Authority provides lifeguard services at the main beach on the Gulf of Mexico and on Quietwater Beach on Santa Rosa Sound. Full-time service from the first of June through August; part-time and weekend service begins mid-April, then picks up again for September. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Surf conditions can be deceiving. There can be dangerous currents even on calm days. Call 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. Rip currents and rapidly changing weather conditions can create dangerous situations if you are unprepared. It is always safest to swim where lifeguards are present. And never swim alone. Rip currents. 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. To escape a rip current – swim parallel to the shore, do not try to swim against the current. If the current is too strong, let it carry you farther away from shore. It will eventually weaken. Then swim back to shore at an angle away from the current. If an emergency occurs, always call 911. When heading to the beach, make note of the closest walkover number to your location. In an emergency, this will help emergency responders know the closest proximity.

American Red Cross water safety advice From www.redcross.org Low Hazard Calm conditions, exercise caution

Dangerous marine life

Make water safety your priority. • Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards. • Always swim with a buddy; do not allow anyone to swim alone. Even at a public pool or a lifeguarded beach, use the buddy system. • Ensure that everyone in the family learns to swim well. Enroll in age-appropriate Red Cross water orientation and Learn-to-Swim courses. • Never leave a young child unattended near water and do

Word Search: ‘Safe summer’

not trust a child’s life to another child. Teach children to always ask permission to go near water. • Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets around water, but do not rely on life jackets alone. • Establish rules for your family and enforce them without fail. For example, set limits based on each person’s ability, do not let anyone play around drains and suction fittings, and do not

allow swimmers to hyperventilate before swimming under water or have breath-holding contests. • Even if you do not plan on swimming, be cautious around natural bodies of water including ocean shoreline, rivers and lakes. Cold temperatures, currents and underwater hazards can make a fall into these bodies of water dangerous. • If you go boating, wear a life jacket. Most boating fatalities

Gosling Games Color Me: ‘Shells’

occur from drowning. • Avoid alcohol use. Alcohol impairs judgment, balance and coordination; affects swimming and diving skills; and reduces the body’s ability to stay warm. • Actively supervise children whenever around the water – even if lifeguards are present. Do not just drop your kids off at the public pool or leave them at the beach – designate a responsible adult to supervise. • Always stay within arm’s reach of young children and avoid distractions when supervising children around water.

Employee excellence recognized at NETC From Naval Education Training Command

N

aval Education and Training Command (NETC) recognized the third quarter Junior and Senior Civilian of the Quarter (CoQ) at an awards ceremony Aug. 13. John Patrick Sanders, serving as the Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education enterprise ordnance program manager in the NETC logistics division, was selected as the Senior CoQ. Originally from the Catawba Nation, S.C., Sanders retired from the Navy as a master chief petty officer before embarking on his civilian career 14 years ago. “I am part of a great team and enjoy the camaraderie we have within the department and throughout the NETC command,” Sanders said. “We all play a vital role in supporting the warfighter.” Sanders uses his weapons systems knowledge and applies Navy doctrine to fulfill all ordnance-related training obligations. Sanders is certified as an

agency coordinator, information technology software officer and property administrator for the Navy in the Defense Property Accounting System. “Mr. Sanders readily accepts additional challenges and provides focused management oversight on newly adapted accountability systems,” Capt.

time working with educational programs and leads special projects at Foley Middle School. Stephen Patton, a training specialist at NETC Learning Site (LS) Corry Station, was recognized as the Junior CoQ. He is the course supervisor for the Navy Instructor Training Course (NITC) and personally instructed seven NITC convening classes graduating 154 students with the instructor Navy enlisted classification code. Patton, a native of Fairbault, Minn., has been instructing Sail-

ors for 22 years while serving on active duty, as a contractor and now as a civil servant. “Mr. Patton really is the local subject matter expert here at Corry Station,” Lt. Stephen Kimball, Corry Station LS lead said. “He always has a new and intuitive aspect on how the process can be further improved while still optimizing the attention and level of instruction each student gets, every time. Mr. Patton is able to ensure that every student that comes through the classroom doors, ranging in experience from E-5 to

GS-15, is able to receive the training they need to go where they’re going next to accomplish their mission in support of the Navy’s goals.” During the award period, Patton also mentored and qualified two instructors; validated numerous test items and revisions; resolved computer issues due to software updates and managed 14 facility service requests ensuring students trained in a safe and effective learning environment. “Our NITC schoolhouse provides our future instructors,” Patton said. “I have the privilege of working with 24 new students every month who are in the midto-late part of their careers.” The NITC course trains instructors in the principles of learning including effective communication and the use of instructional methods, strategies and techniques. “These fleet returnees bring their relevant experiences and learn proven techniques in our classroom to share those experiences with the ‘A’ and ‘C’ school students they will be training,” Patton said.

Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows

victims 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-of-command, 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.
