The Department of the Navy (DoN), with Gulf Power and Coronal Energy (powered by Panasonic) celebrated completion of the largest combined portfolio of solar facilities on Department of Navy property (under construction or built) to date. The 122.2 megawatt (MW) Gulf Coast Solar Center spans 940 acres across two Navy sites in Northwest Florida and is part of a threeproject portfolio that also includes a field on Eglin Air Force Base. “We are pleased to know these facilities will help provide clean energy to thousands of homes across Northwest Florida,” said NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Martin. The project completion was commemorated in a “flip the switch” ceremony Aug. 22 at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola’s Navy Outlying Landing Field (NOLF) Saufley
Field, home to the largest of the three solar installations. Presenters and attendees included Jennifer Miller, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and energy; U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Evan Dertien, commander, 96th Test Wing; NASP CO Martin; Capt. Todd A. Bahlau, commanding officer, NAS Whiting Field; U.S. Air Force Col. John Schuliger, commander, 96th Civil Engineer Group; Mayor Pro-Tempore Charlotte McKamy, city of Mary Esther; Ed Feo, president, Coronal Energy; Jamie Evans, managing director, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions; Mike Walters, director project development, Coronal Energy and Michael Burroughs, vice president, Gulf Power.

NASP Corry Station to receive new fully-stocked USO center From Armed Forces Families Foundation
The United Service Organizations (USO) Northwest Florida and the Armed Forces Families Foundation (AFFF) are scheduled to unveil a new USO center at NAS Pensacola Corry Station Aug. 30. The new USO Corry Station will be unveiled during a grand opening ceremony at 11 a.m., which will include words from guest speakers, refreshments and a tour of the new facility. USO Corry Station will be a 1,400 square foot recre-
ation lounge, equipped with snacks, refreshments, arcade games, high-speed Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, a study bar with laptops, a self-serve kitchen and a rest area with couches. The new facility will also include outdoor recreational space for special events, like barbecues, lawn game tournaments and holiday celebrations. Furnishings, electronics and supplies for the new USO center were made possible by the Armed Forces Families Foundation, (http://armedforcesfamilies.org) a charity organization helping military families throughout the southeast United States.
AFFF donated a total of $49,006 to completely outfit the space as well as provides snacks and supplies for the remainder of the year. The funds donated by AFFF were raised within the Pensacola community through annual fundraisers held at local Taco Bell restaurants. “It has been an honor working with USO Northwest Florida to bring this center to the students and team members stationed at NAS Corry Station. This project has been in the works for some time and we are thrilled to finally present it to our military service members,” said John Wright, a member of the board at AFFF. See USO on page 2

One of the best ways to treat a disease is to prevent patients from getting sick in the first place. Preventing a medical condition before it has a chance to affect others is the goal of Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP’s) Preventive Medicine Department. “We work very hard to prevent any kind of disease or outbreak,” said HM2 Jonathan Harris, preventive medicine technician, NHP. “(Preventive Medicine) is important whether it’s keeping our operating forces healthy on the battlefield or protecting their families from the spread of disease at home.” The Preventive Medicine Department at NHP is responsible for ensuring the health and well-being for everyone that works or lives on

safe for service members, their families and the community. The department also closely monitors health concerns that could impact military installations or local communities. “We monitor communal disease rates on or near military installations for diseases such influenza or sexually transmitted diseases and use that information to inform commands and the local community,” said Cmdr. David Veenhuis, associate director for public health. “We work very closely with local health departments to ensure everyone in our community is safe.” The nature of their job also makes preventive medicine technicians highly deployable. When deployed, the technicians monitor food and water supplies to ensure service members do not contract an illness that may affect mission readiness. They also research disease rates in foreign countries, which can be very different than disease rates here in the United States. “One outbreak can stop the mission,” said Veenhuis, who experienced this first hand when deployed to Iraq with an aviation squadron. “If a squadron is sick, then a squadron can’t fly.” The same applies to any military command, even educational commands that are prevalent on Naval Air Station Pensacola and Corry Station. Every year, thousands of students live in close proximity to each other, eat in the same dining facilities and train in the same swimming pools. The spread of a disease like food poisoning could impact training. “We try and stop the spread of disease before it can impact service members or their families,” said Harris. “That is why I love preventive medicine. We are at the forefront of ensuring our troops are healthy.” For more information on NHP, visit www.med.navy.mil/sites/pcola/Pages/home.aspx or https://www.facebook.com/NavalHospPensacola.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.
The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

F-35C Lightning II integration into the fleet By Rear Adm. Roy Kelley Director, Joint Strike Fighter Fleet Integration Office
As the first director for the Navy’s F-35C Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Fleet Integration Office, I have enjoyed the opportunities and challenges of fifth-generation bringing strike-fighter capabilities to the fleet. As this highly advanced weapons system matures, I am convinced the F-35C will be a cornerstone platform that plays a crucial role in mission success for Carrier Air Wings (CVW), Carrier Strike Groups (CSG) and numbered fleets. The F-35C will be a gamechanger for the Navy. The F-35C Lightning II will introduce next generation strike-fighter aircraft capabilities to the Navy CVW, enabling the CSG and numbered fleets to effectively engage and survive a wide range of rapidly evolving threats, both air and surface, in contested airspace. The unique capabilities of the F-35C, coupled with the proven capabilities and capacity of current United States Navy fighter aircraft, significantly enhance a CSG’s battle space awareness, lethality and survivability. In supporting a principle Department of De-
How to submit a commentary
fense investment objective of balancing modernization and readiness, the Navy remains committed to selecting the right procurement ramp for F-35C to balance strike-fighter inventory management with the cost and time required to field advanced capabilities. The Navy will maintain and sustain much of its current force in order to guarantee mission success against the threats of today, as well as the high-end threats of the future. Near-peer adversaries are advancing technologically and economically, resulting in proliferation of highly capable Integrated Air Defense Systems, high performance aircraft and information operations to include: long-range air surveillance radars and airborne early warning aircraft; long-range surface-to-air missile; highly maneuverable, low observable adversary aircraft; and jamming and anti-jamming operations against communication, radar and Global Positioning System satellites. As technologies continue to advance, the future air wing will continue to adapt as it always has, particularly to increase its capacity to contribute to the sea control mission, conducting both kinetic and non-kinetic op-
erations. The F-35C will be the CSG’s first choice to penetrate and operate in these contested environments, providing a dayone strike capability. Integrated with other fleet assets, the F35C’s tactical agility and strategic flexibility are critical to maintain a long-term decisive tactical advantage. While the day one capability provided allows the F-35C to perform at the “tip of the spear,” its interoperability within the CVW and unique ability to support and augment already fielded legacy platforms is essential to sustaining the Navy’s combat lethality now and in the future. In the near term, legacy aircraft will continue to comprise the majority of the CVW. The CVW’s inherent integrated capability design will enable the distribution of information collected by F-35Cs to enhance the effectiveness and survivability of all sea, air and land platforms throughout the battle space. The mix of both legacy and next generation aircraft operating from carrier flight decks provides the necessary complementary capability and capacity to pace the rapidly evolving threat, a formula which guarantees the CVW of the future remains lethal, sur-

vivable and able to accomplish the full spectrum of CSG and numbered fleet mission sets while providing an effective and affordable balance across the strike fighter inventory. The F-35C’s stealth characteristics, long-range combat identification and ability to penetrate threat envelopes, while fusing multiple information sources into a coherent picture, will enhance the role
that the CSG and numbered fleets must play in support of our national interests. The Navy remains dedicated to a capability focused approach as we evolve the CVW and the CSG. The F-35C’s capability will provide decision superiority to the nation’s warfighters to ensure that if deterrence fails, the United States can conduct decisive combat operations to defeat any adversary.

HOF quarterback remembers Goshawks playing time By Jay Cope NASWF Public Affairs Officer
ormer Navy Lt. Roger Staubach remembers a time early on in his pro football career when the Dallas Cowboys’ starting quarterback, Craig Morton, got injured during a game. Just before going in to replace him, Staubach leaned in to Head Coach Tom Landry and said, “How’s it feel to know your starting quarterback was playing for the (Navy) Pensacola Goshawks this time last year?” Fortunately, Staubach played well – the Cowboys came back to win the game and Landry never had to question the risky faith he and the team had placed on a 27year-old quarterback whose last college game had been five years earlier. The credentials were unquestioned and if Staubach had attended an Ohio State, a Florida University or Oklahoma there would have been no doubts about his future NFL career. He was the best player on the second best team in the nation, a Heisman trophy recipient and a recognized leader at the premiere position in the game. Under most circumstances, he was a number one draft pick. However, he came with one very big caveat: he played for the Navy. The five-year obligation placed on each member of the Naval Academy team frightened nearly every NFL front office away from Staubach’s name come draft time, but the Cowboys risked a flyer on a 10th round pick for the young naval officer and were prepared to bide their time, despite the fact that no one could know what kind of a player he would be five years removed from high level competition. The pick was widely panned across the league. Staubach had larger concerns. He was about to head into the Vietnam War. Although he could have requested an assignment in the states, Staubach chose to volunteer for a one-year tour of duty in Vietnam. Through August 1967, he commanded about 40 enlisted men as a supply corps officer at the Chu Lai port, an air base that provided support to Da Nang Air Base approximately 50 miles to the northwest. He worked with swift boat officers and Navy SEALs at the camp and tried to maintain his conditioning while there. He ran and worked out at a soccer field in Da Nang with his coworkers. He joked, “You didn’t want to run too far or you would be in VC territory.” Working around his duties as a freight terminal officer, Staubach also lifted with some old Navy teammates with the sets of weights they had at the camp. It certainly helped, but he admits that his con-
ditioning in theater was not what it was while he was at the academy. However, the benefit of his one year in Vietnam was that he was able to transfer back to the states, to Naval Air Station Pensacola. The complex of air fields provided plenty of rewarding work and the beautiful beaches and rural atmosphere was a great place to raise his family, but Pensacola came with one more advantage – the Pensacola Goshawks. NAS Pensacola had one of the last military installation tackle football teams and played a regular schedule of mid-level conference colleges. The location held a strong appeal to the young quarterback who had a desire to get back in the game. He even wrote a letter to the NAS Pensacola commanding officer, Capt. W.R. McDowell, expressing his desire to play on the team in advance of his transfer. “I have managed to stay in shape and hope to play football for the naval air station. I miss athletics very much and hope to participate in them at Pensacola if they don’t interfere with my duties.” It is safe to say that almost everyone was eagerly awaiting his arrival – except for perhaps Bill Zloch. Zloch was slated to be the starting quarterback for the Goshawks and had been the quarterback for Notre Dame during his college days. According to Staubach, when he reported to the team, Zloch told him, “I think I am going to have to find a new position.” He switched to wide receiver and, ironically, as a Marine pilot, caught the winning touchdown pass against the Quantico Marines. Staubach said that the Goshawks had not beaten the Marines until that 1967 team. Like Zloch, most of the players on the team had played college football prior to joining the military. According to Tom McCracken, one of Staubach’s team mates and a long-time friend, a very large proportion of the team was from the Naval Academy. At the time, the Naval Academy was a premiere college team and played one of the more difficult schedules in college football. However, colleges like Oklahoma, Virginia, UCLA, Illinois, Iowa and
Navy quarterback Roger Staubach
Clemson dotted the roster as well. Although the competition was fierce, no one doubted what the true priority was. “You had a job there to do and football was secondary,” Staubach remembered. “We practiced about an hour and a half most every day, but that wasn’t the primary role. Working for supply on the base was a big job.” Tryouts began in July and carried through the second week of August, although Staubach missed the first two weeks of practice due to his transfer from Vietnam. The schedule commenced Sept. 9 with a slate that included McNeese State, Middle Tennessee, Southwestern Louisiana, Southeastern Louisiana, Youngstown University, and the Quantico Marines among others. The players would meet at 4:30 p.m. at Kane Field onboard NAS Pensacola for practice. McCracken remembers, that the 6 p.m. stop time was rarely enough for Staubach who would pull him aside from the second team and throw routes. “He would continue throwing to me after practice, and when I would lay there and couldn’t move any more, he would continue throwing,” McCracken said. Even so, after about a two-year layoff, the quarterback was not fully in football shape and although he led them to victory in the first game, he was injured early in the season and missed two consecutive losses to Northwestern and Southwestern Louisiana. He returned midway through the season on a gimpy ankle and still led the team to wins over Youngstown University, Quantico, Lincoln University and Mexico Polytechnic to salvage a winning 6-4 season. Staubach went into the offseason driven to be better in 1968. McCracken, who quickly turned into best friends with the Academy grad through the 1967 season emphasized that you could tell he was a special player by his attitude. “He was a winner. He never
felt like the team was out of a game,” he said. “We practiced together throughout the offseason, and no matter what we were doing, he had to do at least one more than me.” The work also prepared Staubach for his tryout with the Dallas Cowboys. He took time off from the Navy and traveled to Thousand Oaks, Calif. to the Cowboy’s rookie training camp. He remembers feeling “pretty good” after the camp, and recalls Coach Landry saying “he was looking forward to having me back.” In addition to some high hopes following the camp, Staubach returned to Pensacola with one other “secret weapon.” Landry had let him keep the Cowboys playbook to study. The legendary VP of player personnel for the Cowboys, Gil Brandt, told Staubach that he just received “a great vote of confidence.” Armed with some advanced new offensive artillery, Staubach took over as the quarterback coach for the Goshawks, which strangely enough is the only QB coach he ever had according to McCracken. The Naval Academy and the Cowboys had no designated position coach while he played. The Goshawks ’68 season was shaping up to be an impressive one with high pedigree players including wide receiver Steve Dundas who had been drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals football team, linebacker Don Downing who was named to the All-East team in 1965 and 66, NAIAAll American Keith Collins at defensive tackle, small college All American Jeff Dalluge at another linebacker spot and UCLA defensive end Mike Roof who made the All-West team in college. The team tuned up with a preseason victory over Troy State University and then reeled off four straight victories over East Central Oklahoma, Quantico, Middle Tennessee State, Youngstown State, as well as then avenging 1967 losses to Southeastern Louisiana and Southwestern Louisiana. “Coach Landry was an offensive genius,” McCracken remembered. “Our playbook was so far ahead of the defenses we played, we were able to have guys uncovered before the defense knew what happened. We were running the Cowboys’ playbook with the greatest college quarterback of his time.” At Youngstown State, Staubach threw for the most yards he had ever passed in a game – 452. A defense who was led by defensive tackle Ed O’Neill, more famous today as the patriarch in the “Modern Family” and “Married with Children” television series. Dur-
ing a “Tonight Show” broadcast, he supposedly quipped to Jay Leno that “the Goshawks receivers looked like they were renting condos in the end zone.” Unfortunately, the perfect season came crashing to an end when the hazard that affects any type of military team intruded on the stellar season. Players had to transfer to new duty stations. Many players were student aviators and when they completed training they needed to move on for further training. It was rare to have players for more than one season. However, unlike the norm when one or two would transfer at a time, McCracken remembers that 10-12 players were recalled at once. “We lost all our Marines at one time,” he said. “We had to recruit players just to field a team, and the offense was too complex to pick up in a week.” The team lost two of its final three games and finished 7-2. Regardless of how the season ended, for Staubach it reenergized his love for the game and solidified his decision to resign from the Navy and pursue his football career. “I didn’t know if I would leave the service at that time,” he said. “I came back and had a real good year and felt like I was back to myself. After that season I realized I really wanted to play again. I truly enjoyed my service and would have stayed longer otherwise. The two years on the Goshawks squad are mostly lost in the annals of football history, wedged as they are, in between a Heisman career at the academy and a Hall of Fame career with two Super Bowl rings on display. Pensacola turned out to be the right place at the right time for the academy grad. He was able to continue his service to the nation, grow his family and return to the game he loved. Staubach and his family are firmly entrenched in Dallas now, but he admits that “the area brings back some good memories for us.” Staubach completed his tour of duty at NAS Pensacola and resigned his commission in time to participate in the Cowboys training camp – leading up to that important moment against the Cardinals. As a 27-year old rookie in the NFL, the route he took to football stardom was certainly convoluted. Staubach’s military background would be considered a hindrance in most circumstances, but there was at least one lesson learned that he credits to this day with forming his tremendous legacy. And he still has a firm passion for the uniformed services today. “I admire those who serve on the front lines,” he said. “I am proud I served and was fortunate to be associated with a lot of great people during my time in the military.”

Navy hosts motorcycle safety courses to ebb spike in motorcycle-related fatalities By Cathryn Lindsay Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Public Affairs
NORFOLK, Va. (NNS) – With the number of motorcycle-related fatalities for the 2017 fiscal year already surpassing 2016’s fatalities, the Commander of Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Rear Adm. Jack Scorby is reminding Sailors to take advantage of the free, mandatory motorcycle safety courses offered throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region. “Our responsibility to our Sailors is 24-hours a day, seven days a week,” Scorby said. “Courses like this are not just a safety issue, they’re a readiness and personal responsibility issue. Sailors are reminded that these courses are mandatory and to take advantage of the tools offered by the Navy to remain safe and successful.” Since October 2016, 18 Sailors and 16 Marines have died in motorcycle-related accidents, according to a Naval Safety Center report. Last fiscal year, the Department of the Navy lost 12 Sailors and 13 Marines to motorcycle-related incidents. To help prevent more incidents, the Navy offers courses to teach service members motorcycle safety and responsible riding. “Coming to the motorcycle safety courses sets the rider up for success,” Naval Station Norfolk Director of Safety Mike Lucas said. “What we try and do is let the riders bring their own motorcycles and give them instruction on how to
stop, how to turn, how to operate the bike, how to maintain balance over different obstacles and give them the survival skills they will need out there on the street.” The Navy offers Sailors, Marines and Department of Defense civilians frequent motorcycle safety courses, designed to help riders develop and maintain the skills needed to safely operate a motorcycle. The 16-hour Basic Rider Course is mandatory for all active duty Sailors who plan to operate and ride a motorcycle. For riders who have yet to purchase a motorcycle, the course has several medium-sized bikes for riders to train with during the course, explained Senior Chief Jerrod Morgan, the leading chief petty officer of the Naval Station Norfolk’s Operations Department. Riders who have registered for the course are allowed to ride onbase while they are getting their certification. “I’ve seen a lot of riders throughout my career who don’t know what they’re doing and what they’re getting into,” ITSC Omar Sotelo said. “The course does a good job in showing new riders what (their) limitations are.

some of the stuff you should be using, like judgment, perception and reaction.” Beyond attending the required training, active-duty riders are required to wear the proper personal protective equipment riding on or offbase, Morgan explained. Riders must wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt or jacket, a Department of Transportation approved helmet, protective eye wear, full-fingered gloves and above-ankle shoes. Riders are also highly encouraged to wear steel-toed boots, according to Morgan. “I always tell my Sailors who are even thinking about
buying a motorcycle that they really need to come and experience it for themselves, not just to jump on a bike, attempt to ride and possibly hurt themselves or others,” Morgan explained. “They need to come (to the BRC), learn from experienced instructors and they’ll discover it’s not as easy as it looks, but over time it becomes a learned skill that can become a very fun part of your life.” For more information on the motorcycle safety courses, visit www.navymotorcycle rider.com To learn more about what to expect during a BRC or ARC course, visit www.youtube/ NavyUobGkMg

Four years, four ranks and farewell Story, photo by Jay Cope NASWF Public Affairs Officer
our years ago, ACAN Alexandrea Coy was fresh out of school, reporting to NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) as her first command and anxious to learn anything she could. Now, she is a seasoned veteran, a recognized front-runner and, unfortunately, preparing for a new adventure out of the Navy. Coy is leaving Northwest Florida to head north back to the wilds of Montana to be with her family. Before she departed, NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau presented her a Navy Achievement Medal, Aug. 10, to acknowledge the command’s recognition of her hard work and superlative accomplishments. The certificate read, in part: “Petty Officer Coy’s managerial expertise and superb leadership helped guide her 23 member watch team through the safe execution of over 263,000 flight operations which yielded 93 professional qualifications, 31 supervisor designations, and 1,451 new aviator designations.” However, her final
award is only part of the story, as she has been viewed as a top Sailor throughout her tour. Starting her tour as the most junior air traffic controller onboard, she matured quickly as a leader. She held the assistant section leader position as a second class when the billet is normally held by senior first class petty officers, served as the facility watch supervisor managing nearly 167,000 air traffic operations and helped train and instruct to achieve more than 600 air traffic control personnel qualifications. Her impact was felt throughout the command as she also succeeded in multiple collateral duties such as assistant command fitness leader, assistant radar instructor, assistant Airfield Vehicle Operator
Course (AVOC) manager and more. Coy has also performed the national anthem at numerous change of command and retirement ceremonies, treating command personnel, families, and guests with her singing voice. The local community has benefitted as well from her impressive talents as she has served as an assistant coach for the Jay 9U Softball Team and volunteered in support of the local cub scout pack. Coy’s most impressive achievement however could be the simple fact that her performance was matched by her rapid advancements. During her single four-year tour she advanced to third class, second class and first class in rapid succession, a feat Air Traffic Control Officer

Lt. Jeffrey Smith says he has only heard of being accomplished one other time during his career by an air traffic controller. “I am awed to see one of ours achieve a remarkable accomplishment as AC1 Coy did,” he said. “We are lucky in that there are many controllers at NAS Whiting Field who
are high-level performers, but to see AC1 show up day-in and day-out, unwavering in her commitment and completely focused and dedicated to her team while achieving so many designated appointments of responsibility, was truly inspiring.” Bahlau remembered that Coy was the first Jun-

ior Sailor of the Quarter he recognized after he took command and that she never let him forget how superlative a Sailor she was. “I tried my hardest to get her to stay Navy,” he said with a smile. “She will definitely be missed here. She did an amazing job.” As Coy prepares to transition out of the military and hopefully work with the FAA in the northwest, she continued to push her fellow air traffic controllers and reminded them that “anyone can do what I did. Just keep giving 100 percent and come to work ready, everyday.” She does know though, that she will miss her first and only duty station. “It’s been great. It is like a small family here,” she said. “I love the people and I love my job. It’s been fun.”

In September, remember: Have a plan From www.ready.gov
This September, National Preparedness Month (NPM) will focus on planning, with an overarching theme “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.” We should all take action to prepare. We are all able to help first responders in our community by training how to respond during an emergency and what to do when disaster strikes – where we live, work and visit. The goal of NPM is to increase the overall number of individuals, families and communities that engage in preparedness actions at home, work and business.
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 will 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 is 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

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 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 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 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 circum-

stances 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.

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
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.

The first doctor said,“It looks flat.” The second doctor feels the tire and said, “It feels flat.” The third doctor said, “I hear a hissing noise.” Together in agreement, they all nodded their heads.“We’d better run some tests.” 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.” 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.”

Vietnam vet presented with overdue Air Medal Story, photo by Ens. Clara Navarro NASP Public Affairs
ulf Coast area Vietnam vet-
eran Doug Miles was presented with the Air Medal
Aug. 18 at the National Naval Aviation Museum. Cmdr. Jeff Hodges of Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC) Pensacola did the honors. The Air Medal is awarded to any person who, while serving in any capacity in or with the armed forces of the United States, shall have distinguished by meritorious himself achievement while participating in aerial flight. Award of the Air Medal is primarily intended to recognize those personnel who are on current or noncrewmember crewmember flying status which requires them to participate in aerial flight on a regular and frequent basis in the performance of their primary duties. “I am honored to receive my Air Medal from the U.S. Navy with support of two great leaders: Sen. Jeff Sessions and Cmdr. John Bellinger, USN re-
tired, the pilot that I flew with in Vietnam,” said Miles. According to his citation, Miles received his award for “meritorious achievement while participating in aerial flight as an aircrewman in patrol aircraft while attached to Patrol Squadron 50, engaged in direct combat support of operations against the enemy in Southeast Asia from 10 October 1965 to 13 September 1966.” Miles served a total of four years in the Navy as an aviation ordnance technician, almost a year of which was spent as a crewmember of the Martin P5 Marlin, a seaplane. Almost forty years later, Miles became a member of the Mariner/Marlin Association (MMA), a

group dedicated to preserving the history of the Martin seaplanes. It was at a MMA reunion that Miles discovered that all members of his P5 squadron earned the Air Medal. Many of these sailors were never officially awarded the honor due to the chaos of deseaplanes. commissioning Miles took immediate action, filling out all required paperwork and writing to government officials for the next fifteen years in the hope of claiming his medal. Ultimately, it was U.S. Rep. Jeff Sessions who pushed the case through to Washington, D.C., and put Miles in contact with NOSC
Pensacola. The staff there helped set up the award ceremony at the aviation museum, which took place next to the very plane that Miles crewed. Thirteen of Miles’ friends and family were in attendance. Miles added, “After serving two tours for my country in an unpopular political war, dealing with PTSD thereafter with little support from the VA, then 15 years of correspondence with the bureaucracy trying to correct the error, I now after 50 years feel blessed that I have lived to see all this overcome. Now maybe I can help my other crewmates with the same issue. Never give up. Go
Navy.” During his Navy career, Miles also earned the Navy Commendation Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal, two Bronze Stars and the Vietnam Campaign Medal. He now serves as the MMA president, based in Alabama. The citation’s closing words reflected Miles’ actions. “By his superior professionalism, perseverance and loyal devotion to duty in the face of hazardous flying conditions, Petty Officer Miles reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.”

intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain.

WSRE, PBS for the Gulf Coast, will present a special preview screening of highlights from “The Vietnam War,” the latest documentary project by filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, on Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. in the WSRE Jean and Paul Amos Performance Studio at Pensacola State College. “The Vietnam War” is a new 10-part, 18hour documentary film series premiering Sept. 17 on PBS stations nationwide.

The series will also be available for streaming for a limited time at pbs.org and on PBS apps. “The Vietnam War” features testimonies from nearly 100 witnesses, including many Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides. Ten years in the making, “The Vietnam War” brings the war and the chaotic era it encompassed viscerally to life. The series includes rarely seen, digitally remastered archival
footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies and revelatory audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations. When “The Vietnam War” airs on PBS in September, it will be accompanied by a farreaching educational outreach and civic engagement campaign to inspire a national conversation. In addition to “The Vietnam War” screening event on Sept. 7, WSRE is encouraging local community engagement with a special Public Square Speakers Series presentation featuring Gold Star daughter Margot Delogne and film producer Anthony Istrico along with a screening of a their film, “The 2 Sides Project,” on Friday, Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. in the Amos Studio.

than 20 Vietnamese sons and daughters whose fathers also died in the war. Directed by Istrico, the film captures these powerful encounters along with emotional visits to the sites where the Americans’ fathers died some 50 years ago. Delogne’s goal for the 2 Sides Project is to connect more people similarly affected by the Vietnam War and eventually by more recent wars. According to the organization’s website, an estimated 20,000 Americans and 70,000 Vietnamese lost their fathers in the Vietnam War.
Concurrent with the broadcast premiere of “The Vietnam War,” the first five episodes will be available for streaming beginning Sept. 17 at pbs.org and on PBS apps, and the final five episodes will be available beginning Sept. 24.
