Three Naval Air Station Pensacola Sailors – AM1 Ken Hall, FC1 Bradley Dutkanych and AM1 Joseph Tullis – took the initiative to repaint a faded Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornet which had been on display outside the NASP Mustin Beach Club. The jet was unveiled Aug. 22 with a surprise – base Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins, a former Blue Angel, had his name and flight position

As part of the training ensuring every member of the Department of the Navy (DoN) team understands that sexual assault in all forms is unacceptable, civilian staff members from the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) are conducting Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) training Aug. 20-Sept. 18. Sexual Assault Prevention: One Team, One Fight is mandatory training for all DoN civilians and must be completed before Oct. 1. The training is designed to meet Congressional, Department of Defense and DoN requirements as part of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.

But there’s a problem that affects our safety and our mission readiness and I’m talking about sexual assault. On average, three sexual assaults are reported every single day. And that isn’t the whole story, because a lot of sexual assaults go unreported. Sexual assault is real and it is a crime.

The All Navy sports men’s and women’s basketball programs are gearing up for the 2013 Armed Forces Basketball Championship. The tournament held each fall showcases the best players in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. This year, the tournament will be hosted aboard Naval Station Great Lakes in Illinois from Oct. 1229. AN Brittany White was a student stationed aboard NAS Pensacola when she submitted her application for last year for the women’s team. Rules state that players must have completed Aschool before they are eligible to compete in the tournament. By the time the tournament rolled

around in November, White had been stationed aboard Naval Air Facility Atsugi in Japan and was able to represent that command in the tournament. White and her teammates took home the gold in the 2012 women’s basketball tournament with a record of 5-2 at Tyndall Air Force Base near Panama City, Fla. Women’s head coach Tonya Strobridge is hoping to lead the women to a second consecutive tournament victory this year. The men came in fourth last year in the same tournament, but head coach Lt. Micah W. Bonner believes they can win it all this year. Bonner knows a little something about winning too; he was the Navy’s starting point guard when it won the tournament in 2005.

Base Kings Bay, Ga., and bases in the Jacksonville area. Limited duty officer and chief warrant officer are two separate programs that provide the Navy with officer technical managers and technical specialists who exercise leadership in key positions throughout the service. Combined, these two communities make up more than 11 percent of the officer corps. Both programs provide the opportunity for outstanding senior enlisted personnel to compete for a commission. As officer technical managers of the line or staff corps, LDOs progressively advance within broad technical fields related to their former enlisted ratings. They fill leadership and management positions at the ensign through captain level that require technical backgrounds and skills not attainable through normal development within other officer designators. LDOs serve as, but are not limited to serving as, division officers, department heads, OICs, XOs and COs, ashore or afloat. Today, as commissioned officers of the line or staff corps, Navy CWOs possess the authority and are qualified by extensive experience and knowledge to direct the most difficult and exacting operations within a given occupational specialty. Although intended primarily as technical specialists, CWOs may also serve as division officers, department heads, OICs, XO and CO, ashore or afloat.

It was strictly collateral; we did two jobs to do this and worked a lot of extra hours.” “These static displays are an excellent recruiting tool,” Dutkanych added. “When they are freshly painted, it gives you a sense of pride.” For their parts in the “Mustin Beach Blue Angel Static Display Reconditioning Project,” Dutkanych received a Navy Achievement Medal; Hall, a Navy Commendation Medal; and Tullis, a Letter of Commendation. Additional NASP personnel who helped with the project included AM3 Yolanda Crow, EN2 Joseph Arriesgado, SH1 Donald Perry and Blues’ LS1 Misty Brown, all of who donated their labor to sand and prepare the aircraft surface. “Hats off to the awardees; we greatly appreciate their assistance in repainting this Blue Angel display,” Hoskins said. The cost-saving accomplishment in restoring the display signifies the importance of teamwork, he said. The work was done at the National Naval Aviation

Museum’s (NNAM) restoration facility, with the Sailors providing the project’s labor – and the strict oversight of NAS Pensacola’s Safety Department and Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP) industrial hygienist. Only Hall, a Navy-qualified painter trained in depot-level processes, handled the paint, due to OSHA and Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP) requirements. Behind the scenes, the project involved complex permissions and many significant safety regulations. All were observed, Hall said. New standard operating procedures (SOPs) actually had to be established to complete the work. The desire to see the aircraft restored came naturally to Hall. In civilian life, he doubles as a certified Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) master technician (mechanic) – with painting experience in a car dealership environment. Hall expressed his thanks to everyone involved in the project, for their “perserverance, teamwork and pride” in the job. The project began in October 2012, when the aircraft was moved from the Mustin Beach Club to the NNAM. In April of this year, after medical checks, departamental OKs and other paperwork considerations were overcome, the hard work began. Weather was a factor, and safety and environmental concerns were rigorously enforced throughout the project’s duration.

Marine Corps for sexual assault, period. Sexual assault harms team morale. It erodes the trust that binds our organization together, it undermines our operational readiness, and it tarnishes our reputation. It also violates the trust of the families who have placed the well-being and safety of their family members in our hands. As secretary, I’m personally committed to eliminating sexual assault throughout the Department of the Navy, because we are a family. It’s up to all of us to protect each other.” Mike Stahl, SAPR program manager for NETC, is coordinating the civilian training at headquarters and throughout the domain. Stahl also serves as one of the facilitators for the headquarters training. “We have more than 4,000 civilians working side-by-side with our military members at NETC activities, so it’s vital to include them in this important effort,” said Stahl. “Civilians are an integral part of our training and education culture, and they need to be armed with the same type of information which was provided to our service members during the SAPR standdown, SAPR Leadership and Fleet training sessions.” The civilian SAPR training is approximately 90-minutes long and consists of 30-minutes of video followed by guided group discussion. Class size is designed to average 30 participants, with multiple classes scheduled to include all civilians. In addition to two facilitators, an area Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) or a SAPR Victim Advocate is present during the sessions to provide support to any sexual assault survivors in the audience. Anne Ballensinger, SAPR Victim Advocate from the Naval Air Station Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center, participated in the training. Ballensinger is often the first one to take the call that a sexual assault has taken place. “This new training is provided to ensure that every member of DoN understands that sexist behaviors, sexual harassment, and sexual assault are not tolerated, condoned or ignored,” said Ballensinger. “Every member must be treated with dignity and respect; all allegations of inappropriate behavior must be taken very seriously; and victim privacy must be protected while treating them with utmost sensitivity. Additionally, bystanders must be motivated to step in and intervene in a situation that doesn’t seem right while we hold offenders accountable for committing these crimes.” Additional information and resources to combat sexual assault are available at http://www.sapr.navy.mil. Sexual assault affects Navy readiness, and the Navy is committed to preventing sexual assault.

Grammy has some rich advice for the new girl in town By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I

n the darkness of Room 318, my husband’s gravelly snore could be heard over the rattle of the air conditioner. Normally unable to sleep with any kind of racket, I was out like the proverbial light, my mouth agape from the utter exhaustion that comes with moving. Middle-age didn’t help either. Our son, draped over the makeshift bed we created for him out of hotel chair cushions and extra blankets, tinkered on his laptop, chatting with Facebook friends about the new school he will enter in the fall. In an identical room one floor above, silently laid my mother – who had come to help us move into our assigned base house – nestled tightly between our two daughters. “Grammy?” our youngest whispered in the darkness. “Hu, wha?” my mother came to, her tired eyes at halfmast. “I don’t wanna move here.” “Oh, Sweetie,” my mother tried to regain lucidity, “I know you’re going to miss your sunny house in Florida, but you’ll love all the seasons in Rhode Island. Now, try to get some sleep ...” “Well, I’m OK with that. It’s

just that ...” “I totally understand, Lilly – snow gets me down sometimes too, especially during February and March. And when it snows on Easter, I have half a mind to catch the next Greyhound bus to the Bahamas. And another thing ... “ “No, Grammy, I ...” “But think of all the sled riding you’re going to do,” my mother offered, attempting to recover from her self-absorbed rant. “I’m not talking about that, I ...” “Oh, I get it now, you’re worried about your new school being too hard.” “Well, no, I’m kind of afraid of ...” “The dress code?” “No ...” “Bullies?” “No ...” “Boys?” “Grammy! Listen to me!” Lilly blurted in a hybrid whisper-scream so as to not wake her older sister. “I’m sorry, Sweetie, what are you afraid of? Grammy’s all ears.” In the silence, Lilly tried to

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 20 years (and running).

puppies to Topsiders and lobster. “I’m scared, because all the people here are rich,” she finally admitted, “and we’re not.” Surprised by Lilly’s admission and exaggerated perception of reality, my mother scanned the recesses of her half-conscious mind for an appropriate response. “Don’t be so materialistic, Lilly,” her older sister, Anna, suddenly blurted from the opposite side of the bed. Grammy chuckled at the irony that Anna, who had been obsessed with making money for shopping since she went door-to-door selling her old baby dolls in the first grade, would admonish her sister for concerning herself with money. “It’s not funny, Grammy,” Lilly pouted, feeling embarrassed and ganged-up on. “Oh, Lilly,” my mother said as she pulled her closer, stroked the soft butterscotch hair away from her face and allowed the words to flow without aforethought. “You’re right. Your Dad doesn’t make tons of money – he chose to serve his country even if it meant taking a lower salary than he could make outside of the military. And your mom put aside her career as an attorney to follow him and raise you kids. No, your family doesn’t have a lot of money like some of the folks in this town.

“But you know what?” she waited for replies from the pillows flanking her own head. “What?” the sisters said in hushed unison. “Rich people might have big bank accounts and vacation homes in the Caymans, but those possessions aren’t really worth much in the whole grand scheme of things. What matters more is the value of your life experiences. Living all over the world, courage, patriotism, sacrifice, honor, camaraderie, respect, service – that’s the stuff that money can’t buy.” Before Mr. Sandman lulled them all back to la-la land, my mother kissed her granddaughters on their heads and eked out one final edict: “Lilly, you’re a military kid – hold your head up high, because you’re the richest girl in town.”

NOAA update: 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook From http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov

NOAA’s updated 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook continues to call for an abovenormal season, with the possibility that the season could be very active. The outlook indicates a 70 percent chance of an above-normal season, a 25 percent chance of a near-normal season, and only a 5 percent chance for a below-normal season. See NOAA definitions of above-, near-, and below-normal seasons, which have been slightly modified from previous years. The Atlantic hurricane region includes the North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. As predicted in May, atmospheric and oceanic anomalies across the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea (called the Main Development Region, MDR) are now conducive to an above-normal Atlantic hurricane season. These conditions are expected to persist throughout the peak months (August-October) of the hurricane season in association with the tropical multi-decadal signal, which has contributed to the high activity era that began in 1995. This signal is linked to aboveaverage sea surface temperatures in the MDR and to an enhanced west African monsoon, both of which are now in place. The presence of two named storms in the deep tropical Atlantic during June-July reinforces the expectation for an above-normal season. Historically, years with early-season activity in this region have a high likelihood of being above-normal, with many also being very active (i.e., hyper-active).

A third factor for the season is the likely continuation of ENSO-neutral conditions. There is only a low probability (19 percent) that La Niña will develop and further enhance the activity, and an even lower probability (8 percent) that El Niño will develop and suppress the activity. Based on the current and expected conditions, combined with model forecasts, we estimate a 70 percent probability for each of the following ranges of activity for the entire 2013 Atlantic hurricane season: • 13 to19 named storms. • Six to nine hurricanes. • Three to five major hurricanes. • Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) range of 120-190 percent of the median. The seasonal activity is expected to fall within these ranges in 70 percent of seasons with similar climate conditions and uncertainties to those expected this year. These ranges do not represent the total possible ranges of activity seen in past similar years. The expected ranges are centered well above the official National Hurricane Center (NHC) 1981-2010 seasonal averages of 12 named storms, six hurricanes, and three major hurricanes. Activity to date: Six tropical storms have formed in the Atlantic basin to date, with Chantal and Dorian forming in the deep tropical Atlantic. Significant activity is expected for the remainder of the season, with an additional nine to 15 named storms likely, of which six to nine are expected to become hurricanes with three to five reaching major hurricane status.

“Enhanced activity (this year) means the more likely the chances are that a hurricane is going to make landfall this season. NASP personnel need to make sure you don’t let your guard down; stay prepared.” – NAS Pensacola Emergency Manager Burt Fenters For more, visit http://www.ready.navy.mil/

Changes from the pre-season outlook issued May 23: All of the predicted ranges of activity have been lowered and narrowed slightly from the May outlook. Three reasons for these changes to the ranges are: (1) No hurricanes or major hurricanes formed during June and July; (2) The probability of La Niña developing during August-October is now low; and (3) Many models now have more conservative predictions of hurricane activity. Hurricane landfalls: While NOAA does not make an official seasonal hurricane landfall outlook, the historical likelihood for multiple U.S. hurricane strikes, and for multiple hurricane strikes in the region around the Caribbean Sea, increases sharply for very active (or hyperactive) seasons (ACE more than 165 percent of median). However, regardless of the activity predicted in the seasonal outlook, it only takes one storm hitting an area to cause a disaster. Therefore, residents, businesses, and government agencies of coastal and nearcoastal regions are urged to prepare every hurricane season regardless of this, or any other, seasonal outlook. Predicting where and when hurricanes will strike is related to daily weather patterns, which are not reliably predictable weeks or months in advance. Therefore, it is currently not possible to accurately predict the number or intensity of landfalling hurricanes at these extended ranges, or whether a particular locality will be impacted by a hurricane this season.

NOAA’s updated 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook continues to call for an abovenormal season, with the possibility that the season could be very active. The outlook indicates a 70 percent chance of an above-normal season, a 25 percent chance of a near-normal season, and only a 5 percent chance for a below-normal season. See NOAA definitions of above-, near-, and below-normal seasons, which have been slightly modified from previous years. The Atlantic hurricane region includes the North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. As predicted in May, atmospheric and oceanic anomalies across the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea (called the Main Development Region, MDR) are now conducive to an above-normal Atlantic hurricane season. These conditions are expected to persist throughout the peak months (August-October) of the hurricane season in association with the tropical multi-decadal signal, which has contributed to the high activity era that began in 1995. This signal is linked to aboveaverage sea surface temperatures in the MDR and to an enhanced west African monsoon, both of which are now in place. The presence of two named storms in the deep tropical Atlantic during June-July reinforces the expectation for an above-normal season. Historically, years with early-season activity in this region have a high likelihood of being above-normal, with many also being very active (i.e., hyper-active).

A third factor for the season is the likely continuation of ENSO-neutral conditions. There is only a low probability (19 percent) that La Niña will develop and further enhance the activity, and an even lower probability (8 percent) that El Niño will develop and suppress the activity. Based on the current and expected conditions, combined with model forecasts, we estimate a 70 percent probability for each of the following ranges of activity for the entire 2013 Atlantic hurricane season: • 13 to19 named storms. • Six to nine hurricanes. • Three to five major hurricanes. • Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) range of 120-190 percent of the median. The seasonal activity is expected to fall within these ranges in 70 percent of seasons with similar climate conditions and uncertainties to those expected this year. These ranges do not represent the total possible ranges of activity seen in past similar years. The expected ranges are centered well above the official National Hurricane Center (NHC) 1981-2010 seasonal averages of 12 named storms, six hurricanes, and three major hurricanes. Activity to date: Six tropical storms have formed in the Atlantic basin to date, with Chantal and Dorian forming in the deep tropical Atlantic. Significant activity is expected for the remainder of the season, with an additional nine to 15 named storms likely, of which six to nine are expected to become hurricanes with three to five reaching major hurricane status.

“Enhanced activity (this year) means the more likely the chances are that a hurricane is going to make landfall this season. NASP personnel need to make sure you don’t let your guard down; stay prepared.” – NAS Pensacola Emergency Manager Burt Fenters For more, visit http://www.ready.navy.mil/

Changes from the pre-season outlook issued May 23: All of the predicted ranges of activity have been lowered and narrowed slightly from the May outlook. Three reasons for these changes to the ranges are: (1) No hurricanes or major hurricanes formed during June and July; (2) The probability of La Niña developing during August-October is now low; and (3) Many models now have more conservative predictions of hurricane activity. Hurricane landfalls: While NOAA does not make an official seasonal hurricane landfall outlook, the historical likelihood for multiple U.S. hurricane strikes, and for multiple hurricane strikes in the region around the Caribbean Sea, increases sharply for very active (or hyperactive) seasons (ACE more than 165 percent of median). However, regardless of the activity predicted in the seasonal outlook, it only takes one storm hitting an area to cause a disaster. Therefore, residents, businesses, and government agencies of coastal and nearcoastal regions are urged to prepare every hurricane season regardless of this, or any other, seasonal outlook. Predicting where and when hurricanes will strike is related to daily weather patterns, which are not reliably predictable weeks or months in advance. Therefore, it is currently not possible to accurately predict the number or intensity of landfalling hurricanes at these extended ranges, or whether a particular locality will be impacted by a hurricane this season.

Whiting Field job fair a success Story, photo by Ens. Emily Hegarty NASWF PAO

A

mid colorful table displays and a bustling crowd, Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) hosted its 24th annual job fair Aug. 22 at Sikes Hall. In attendance were more than 850 potential employees and 74 employers. During the course of the six-hour event, 3,250 general information sessions and 612 interviews were conducted. “The job fair is a winwin situation,” said Bill Lawson, director of NASWF Fleet and Family Services. “Employers are looking for good candidates, job seekers are looking for good job opportunities and military friendly employers, and this venue brings everyone together.” The fair is widely regarded as one of the best in the area, and each of the employers in attendance indicated that they would be willing to attend another NASWF job fair. Seventy-five people were hired at the job fair, a statistic which lends credence to the employers’ enthusiasm. Tommy Heaton, senior recruiter for VT Aerospace, said that his company is looking for aviation mechanics and was willing to conduct on-the-spot interviews. “Military training goes

hand in hand with what we do,” he noted. This is the 13th NASWF job fair that VT Aerospace has attended, and the fact that it is such a good job fair is the reason why they keep coming back, Heaton explained. Other companies, including Express Employment Professionals, have attended the NASWF job fair before. Owner Charles Bockwith noted his company has been attending the NASWF job fair since 2001, and that they return because “historically the event is well attended and there are a good variety of applicants. It’s one of the better job fairs, and being able to talk to people helps to pull everything together and put a name to a face when we’re reviewing applications.” While many employers used the Aug. 22 job fair as an opportunity to

extend job offers on the spot, other employers took a different approach. Families Count had a display table set up but was providing only informational sessions, explaining that all of their hiring is done online through their website. The table was set up to let people know what’s available, and they used the job fair as an opportunity to let people know that they are hiring in the next few weeks. Stacy Ray, a program manager at Families Count, stated that the NAS Whiting Field job fair was a great location to do this as they give veterans employment preference because some of their work involves veteran supportive services, and they “want vets to help vets.” Potential employees at the fair seemed equally as enthusiastic about the job opportunities available to

them as the employers did about filling those positions with desirable candidates. Maj. Roy Taylor, an instructor pilot at HT-28, attended the job fair to seek out employment opportunities after the completion of his military career. He is looking for a flying job and noted

Seventy-five people were hired at the job fair, a statistic which lends credence to the employers’ enthusiasm. that he was able to speak with two employers at the job fair who offered career opportunities that interested him. Like many of the employers at the job fair, it was not Taylor’s first job fair. “I attended last year’s job fair to meet with companies I thought I’d

Another potential employee who relocated to the Pensacola area two weeks ago said the fair was a chance for her to learn about the area and the different employment opportunities available to her. After working in the same position for many years, she is excited to do

something she described as “more fun,” and expressed interest in learning about working on base as a civilian. It’s exactly these types of people that Whiting Field hopes to be able to help with the program, and who have provided the diverse and desirable workforce that make the NASWF job fair so successful. Darryl Johnson, the Work and Family Life consultant at NAS Whiting Field Fleet and Family Services, was pleased with the attendance at the job fair and how smoothly the day ran. “The event is a collaborative effort by all base departments that allows us to enhance NAS Whiting Field’s relationship with the community. We’re looking forward to something special for next year’s silver anniversary of this event.”

LABOR DAY

• September 2, 2013 •

how it came to be – and what it means for you

From www.DoL.gov

“Labor Day differs in every essential way from the other holidays of the year in any country,” said Samuel Gompers, founder and longtime president of the American Federation of Labor. Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country.

Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a co-founder of the American Federation of Labor. Library of Congress photo

Founder of Labor Day More than 100 years after the first Labor Day observance, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers. Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a co-founder of the American Federation of Labor, was first in suggesting a day to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.” But McGuire’s place in

Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. What is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and appointed a committee to plan a demonstration and picnic. The first Labor Day The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, Sept. 5, 1883. In 1884, the first Monday in September was selected as the holiday, as originally proposed, and the Central Labor Union urged similar organizations in other cities to follow the example of New York and celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday” on that date. The idea spread with the growth of labor organizations and in 1885 Labor Day was celebrated in many industrial centers of the country. Labor Day legislation Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886.

From them developed the movement to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York Legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on Feb. 21, 1887. During the year four more states – Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York – created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers, and June 28 of that year, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories. A nationwide holiday The form that the observance and celebration of Labor Day should take were outlined in the first proposal of the holiday – a street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations” of the community, followed by a festival for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families. This became the pattern for the celebrations of Labor Day. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the economic and civic significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to

the spiritual and educational aspects of the labor movement. The character of the Labor Day celebration has undergone a change in recent years, especially in large industrial centers where mass displays and huge parades have proved a problem. This change, however, is more a shift in emphasis and medium of expression. Labor Day addresses by leading union officials, industrialists, educators, clerics and government officials are given wide coverage in newspapers,

Gosling Games Color Me ‘Math class’

radio and television. The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom and leadership – the American worker.

The race will start at 8 a.m. near Radford Gymnasium and follow a scenic route through the base. The race is a USA Track & Field sanctioned event. Post-race activities include food, drink and music. Race participants may register online or with a mail-in form at www.semperficharityrun.org/registration.html. Registration is $25 per runner until Sept. 2, with a guaranteed T-shirt. The cost goes up to $30 from Sept. 2 to Sept. 21. The registration deadline for mil-

itary units wishing to run in formation is Sept. 1. Walk-in late registration and early-bird packet pick up will be 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 20 at Seville Quarter, 130 East Government St. Same day registration will start at 6 a.m. Sept. 21. Team registration is available for four-six runners/walkers at $100 per team until Sept. 1, and for $120 thereafter. The run began in 1983 with the goal of helping the families of the 241 American service members killed in the bombing attack on the Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon. Today, the purpose of the race is to give back to the Pensacola community. In 2012, the association raised $35,000 for the local charities. All proceeds from the race will benefit the local outreach programs.

“Supporting our local community, especially the children, falls under our duty as Marines,” said Marine 2nd Lt. Conner Larned, one of the organizers of the run. “This race is now a 30-year tradition, and we as Marines look forward to the service that we can help provide these children. “It is my hope that this race raises awareness for what these local charities do and that the citizens of Pensacola support this cause by donating or registering at http:// www.semperficharityrun.org,” he said. Sponsorship opportunities also are available. For more information, go to www.semperficharityrun.org or call 452-9460, ext. 3044.

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.

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.
