SecNav remembers legacy of naval aviator, astronaut Neil Armstrong ... WASHINGTON, D.C. (NNS) – “On behalf of the men and women of the Navy Department, I extend my deepest and most heartfelt sympathies to the family of Neil Armstrong. Mr. Armstrong rightly belongs to the ages as the man who first walked on the moon, a pioneer of space exploration and science. A giant. But to those of us in his Navy family, he will also remain a shipmate – a naval aviator who flew nearly 80 combat missions during the Korean War. A leader. He never wanted to be a living memorial, and yet to generations the world over his epic courage and quiet humility stands as the best of all examples. It is not merely his ‘small step’ we admire; it is his very large and humble heart. The world has lost a legend. We have lost a friend, unique in our lifetime and never to be out of our minds.” – Ray Mabus, Secretary of the Navy.

EscaRosa CFC holds 2012 campaign focus brief From Combined Federal Campaign

A Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) focus brief was held in the Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC) theater Aug. 24 to highlight the importance of this year’s CFC program to area leadership. The briefing was

specifically intended for senior representation attendance from all military and federal civilian offices within the Pensacola, Pace and Milton areas.

Guest speaker at the event was Rear Adm. Donald P. Quinn, Commander, Naval Education and Training Command. “In my experience, achieving success in a CFC campaign is accomplished by offering every federal employee, civilian and military alike, the opportunity to donate to

cial, such as Rear Adm. Quinn, speak from experience on the significance of philanthropic giving through the CFC, we consider it a huge win for the campaign and for the nonprofit charities that receive the donations,” Denson said. “The commanding

MCPON sends 2012 Labor Day message Special Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (SS/SW) Rick D. West

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON)(SS/SW) Rick D. West released the following Labor Day message to the fleet Aug. 27. “Shipmates and Navy families, “For 130 years, our great nation has celebrated Labor Day, the ‘workingmen’s holiday’ as it was referred to in the 1800s. Labor Day is, in fact, a celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers; those

workers whose drive, determination and relentless strength made our nation into what it is today, and those who continue on their path. “Labor Day weekend is also seen as the last ‘hooyah’ before the end of summer ... a long weekend filled with various outdoor activities or one final road trip with the kids before school starts. Whatever your Labor Day plans happen to involve, be sure your holiday weekend includes risk management and preventive measures so it ends on a safe and positive note. “In 2011, between Memorial Day and

Labor Day, 16 Sailors lost their lives. One in an ATV wreck; two drowned; one during recreational activities; five in four-wheeled motor vehicles; and seven on motorcycles. This year we have lost 15 Sailors in similar mishaps. Let’s not see the number rise this Labor Day weekend. You and your families are important to the Navy and the loss of just one trained and ready Sailor or family member is unacceptable, and in most cases preventable with proper planning. “As you enjoy time off with family and friends this holiday weekend, keep in mind our shipmates who are

deployed and in harm’s way. Their labor of keeping the watch for the safety and security of our nation is one we all share. It’s because of you that Americans can enjoy the freedoms and liberties we all hold so dearly. Thank you, Shipmates, for your continued service and dedication to our great Navy and nation. “Stay focused; stay alert; stay safe and let’s bring this summer to a close with zero fatalities or injuries. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend and hooyah. “Very respectfully, “MCPON”

Corps and international students for follow-on training. With such stellar results, it is clear that safety is a way of life in VT-10, both on and off duty, and is at the forefront of every brief, flight and de-brief. “It is a great honor to be given the opportunity to receive this wonderful award on behalf of VT-10 and the Wildcat Team,” said Reeves. “This is a testament to the hard work, attention to detail and safety-first culture that our staff and students employ every day. We as a unit pride ourselves in conducting each evolution, from preflight planning to debrief, to the safest extent possible. This award solidifies the Wildcat Team as a leader in safety and as a model unit for fellow aviation squadrons to follow.” This year, the VT-10 Wildcats were also awarded the 2011 Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Aviation Safety Award, also known as the “Safety S,” the 2011 Admiral John H. Towers Award for the Best in Flight Safety, the 2012 Grampaw Pettibone Safety Award for Media Category, and were selected as a finalist for the Alfred P. Sloan Workplace Flexibility Award. The selection as a recipient of the CNO “Safety S” is based upon aircraft flight mishap rates, ground mishaps, currency of safety programs and flight exposure. Subjective criteria is also used to include quality contributions to the Naval Aviation Safety Program. Also taken into consideration are timely reporting of hazards, recommendations for corrective action and safety articles for publication. This will mark the 23rd time that VT-10 has received the CNO “Safety S,” with the first award received in 1977. The Admiral John H. Towers Award was presented to VT-10 May 2, 2012 during a visit to NAS Pensacola by Rear Adm. William Sizemore, Chief of Naval Air Training. The award, first presented in 1968, consists of a Daedalian Trophy presented annually to the training squadron of the Naval Air Training Command adjudged by the Chief of Naval Air Training to have achieved an outstanding record in its mission-oriented flight safety program.

officers, officers-in-charge and directors play an important role in the campaign as the leaders of their employees, so their investment is key. This event was a great way to get the ball rolling and we are energized to get the campaign started after the holiday weekend.” In a recent letter, U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director John Berry endorsed CFC’s efforts for 2012. “Year after year, the CFC provides federal employees with an opportunity to join together and collectively help people in local communities, across the nation and around the world,” Berry said. “Since 1961, federal employees have supported the campaign and the impact has been tremendous. We feed the hungry, provide shelter to the homeless and meet countless other life-changing needs. We share in the accomplishments that result from the generosity of federal workers, touching virtually every community in every state in the country. “As we begin the 2012 CFC season, I want to say ‘thank you’ to each and every federal employee for all that is done to help others.” Berry has been named CFC honorary chairperson by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

NITC international students study security measures ... International students enrolled in Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity International Training Center’s (NITC) International Antiterrorism and Piracy (IATP) course visit Pensacola’s Gulf Power to understand security measures at potential terrorist targets Aug. 24. The course features expert military and civilian guest speakers, numerous case studies, interactive student exercises and field trips. Between lectures, the students were given the opportunity to learn more about the United States and the American way of life by taking field trips to Atlanta, regional historical sites and monuments, and out-of-classroom activities that focus on IATP subjects, such as visiting United States Coast Guard activities related to homeland security, and a Naval Air Station Pensacola harbor tour with Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) officers to learn about port security.

Flooded? BBB’s tips to avoid a second disaster after the storm From Northwest Florida BBB

As many begin the task of cleaning up after a storm, BBB offers tips to help avoid a second disaster. Tips for flood damage clean-up: • Call your insurance agent immediately to file a claim. Be sure to ask for specific procedures or paperwork needed to move forward with repairs. • Take photos of any water saturation. An insurance adjuster may need to see what has been damaged in order to process your claim. • Discard or clean all wet items within 48 hours. According to the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as soon as the majority of water is drained away, all wet items should be cleaned and dried, or thrown away within 48 hours of flooding to prevent the growth of mold. Following the storm, BBB also urges consumers and business owners to be careful of potential repair scams. “Storm chasers” often set up a temporary shop and skip town when the next disaster hits elsewhere, leaving homeowners with unfinished or unsatisfactory repairs. Tips for hiring a repair contractor: • Research trustworthy businesses. Deal only with licensed and insured contractors. Certain construction businesses are required to be licensed by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Find a BBB Accredited Business contractor through

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher W. Plummer Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White 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,

BBB Northwest Florida’s AccreditedBusiness Directory at www.bbb. org/northwesternflorida/accredited-business-directory/movers. If a business is BBB accredited, it meets BBB’s accreditation standards which include a commitment to make a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. • Get multiple bids. Get bids from at least three companies and ask for referrals. • Take your time signing a contract. Remember to ask if there is a charge for an estimate before allowing anyone into your home. Get a written estimate that includes any verbal promises the contractor made. Ask for explanations for price variations. Get a copy of the final, signed contract before the job begins. • Avoid paying a large sum upfront. Resist dealing with any contractor who asks you to pay for the entire job upfront. A down payment is acceptable, but it should not be a significant amount of the total cost. Pay only by check or credit card and pay the final amount only after the work is completed to your satisfaction and passes any required inspections. Avoid paying in cash. • Beware of door-to-door solicitations. Severe storms bring fly-by-night contractors to the area. Often these contractors solicit work door-to-door, have no license or contact information and require high upfront fees before beginning any work. BBB recommends researching the business before signing a contract or paying a deposit.

You have right to appeal Non-Judicial Punishment By Allyse Wirkkala Navy Legal Services Office Central

If you are found guilty at NonJudicial Punishment (NJP), you have the right to appeal. You may appeal if the punishment is unjust or disproportionate to the alleged offense. A punishment is unjust if there is not enough evidence to prove that you committed the alleged offense. A punishment is disproportionate if it is excessive for the alleged offense based on the specific facts of the offense, your record of service, or other relevant circumstances. To appeal an NJP, you must go through the proper channels. You must appeal to the next superior authority of the officer who imposed your punishment. If you decide to submit an NJP appeal, you must submit the appeal within five working days; otherwise the right to appeal is waived unless good cause can be shown. In an appeal, you may include a statement requesting a stay of restraint, punishment, or extra duties. This is a request to delay implementation of the punishment until you receive the response on your appeal. While you may submit the appeal on your own, it is best to contact your nearest legal service office for assistance. Either an attorney or paralegal will assist you in drafting the appeal. Be sure to provide the legal office with all documentation related to the NJP,

including your rights notification, a copy of the investigation, witness statements and a copy of the NJP itself. Upon review of your appeal, the superior authority may set aside the punishment, decrease its severity or deny the appeal. Remember after going to mast to stay on your best behavior, additional instances of misconduct may result in administrative separation processing. If you have any questions or would like assistance with submitting your NJP appeal, contact your nearest legal services office. Allyse Wirkkala is a legal intern at the Navy Legal Services Office (NSLO) Central, which is located at 161 Turner St., Suite B, Bldg. 624, second deck, aboard NAS Pensacola.

2012 a good year for women in the Navy By Ens. Amber Lynn Daniel Diversity and Inclusion Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – All Navy commands were encouraged to reflect on and celebrate the accomplishments of women in the armed services Aug. 26 in honor of Women’s Equality Day. This year has been a landmark year for women in the Navy. The year kicked off with five women making naval history as the first allfemale E-2C Hawkeye crew to fly a combat mission on Jan. 25. Rear Adm. Michelle Howard was nominated for appointment to vice admiral April 16. If confirmed, Howard would become the first female African American three star admiral.

There are currently 35 female flag officers in the Navy; 21 represent the active-duty component and 14 represent the reserve component. Enlisted women also made notable accomplishments during 2012. Command Master Chief (AW/SW) April Beldo continued her tradition of breaking barriers for women when she assumed her new position as force master chief of Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), the first African American woman to do so. Beldo arrived at NETC in April after serving aboard USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), where she held the title of the first female African American command master chief of a nuclear aircraft car-

rier. She is currently the only woman serving as a force master chief in the Navy. Policy changes affecting women serving in the Navy also took shape in 2012. The Department of Defense announced changes to the 1994 Direct Ground Combat Definition and Assignment Rule Feb. 9. The changes were implemented in May, opening an additional 14,325 positions throughout the Department of Defense previously closed to women. Today, 54,537 women serve in the Navy on active duty or in the reserve, comprising 17 percent of the force.

CIDUCS fitness event has serious message Staff, students show healthy support for CSADD and SAPR By CTMSN Kiia Synnestvedt CID Public Affairs

Sailors onboard Corry Station showed support for Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) and Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) onboard Corry Station Aug. 4. Staff and students at the Center for Information Dominance Unit Corry Station (CIDUCS) participated in a unique one-day physical fitness program – FIT60, a Physical-Training (PT) “Fit to Fight” Sexual Assault centered event – to raise awareness for CSADD and SAPR. The Saturday morning hour-long workout was hosted by the CSADD Corry Station Chapter, and headed by CID Unit Chaplain Lt. Nicholas Alander. The commanding officer, executive officer and command senior enlisted were present and strong supporters of CSADD. The CID Unit Corry Station CSADD Petty Officer Mentor IT2 Nicholas Humphrey said Corry’s FIT60 did two very important things: promote a healthy lifestyle and educate Sailors about preventing sexual harassment and assault. “The key to their success as future leaders,” Humphrey said, “is ensuring the information has been given to the Sailors.” The PT was unlike any the Sailors had experienced in the Navy. More than 150 Sailors participated

in an amped-up version of the elementary schoolyard game of duck, duck, goose. They were formed into groups of 10, and then they jogged around a quarter-mile track. There were several PT stations set up around the course. When a group was called goose they would sprint to the nearest PT station and perform the designated challenge. When completed, they resumed jogging on the track. Alander said that in addition to their workout, each group of Sailors ran about five miles. Through breathing hard and racked with sweat from the exertion of a vigorous workout, IT3 D’oshnie Smith said the experience of workout and education was definitely worth the effort of getting up early on a

Saturday morning. “The combined efforts of the CID Unit Corry Station CSADD were great movements toward encouraging Sailors in staying active, pressing onward without the pressures of traditional exercising,” Smith said. Through group activities, such as FIT60, CID Unit Corry Station’s leaders of today are educating the prospective leaders of tomorrow’s Navy in proper eradication of sexual assault and harassment. CID Unit Corry Station Senior Enlisted Leader CTRCM(SW/AW) James Dawkins said he was overwhelmed by the enthusiasm showed by the young Sailors. “I’m very proud to be senior enlisted for a group of Sailors of this caliber. This shows that together we

can stop sexual assault in the Navy,” Dawkins said. CID is the Navy’s Learning Center that leads, manages and delivers Navy and Joint Force training in information operations, information warfare, information technology, cryptology and intelligence. The CID domain comprises nearly 1,300 military, civilian and contracted personnel. Additionally, CID oversees the development and administration of more than 223 courses at four commands, two detachments and 16 learning sites throughout the United States and in Japan. CID also provides training for approximately 24,000 members of the U.S. armed services and allied forces each year.

Mentorship key to Marine’s success Story, photo by Lance Cpl. Paul Peterson 2nd Marine Logistics Group

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — He plays a cat and mouse game with explosives for a living, but accepting credit for his achievements makes him shift uneasily in his seat. Staff Sgt. Christopher P. Lukas, an explosive ordnance disposal team leader with 2nd EOD Company, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, swept the field to receive the Marine Corps Engineer Association’s 2012 EOD Technician of the Year award. It is for “the most outstanding contribution as an EOD Marine,” but Lukas isn’t sure it is solely his to accept. For him, working with explosives is a family affair. “We end up closer than brothers because of the way we have to operate in our career field,” said Lukas, who spent his youth traveling as part of a military family. “You basically know what the other individual thinks.” He credits his achievements to the mentorship of people such as CWO2 Christopher West and Gunnery Sgts. Jonathan Key and William Isele. The names are more than past mentors to Lukas. They are a reflection of how he thinks and who he is as a team leader today. Their example taught him to step forward while others are backing away, Lukas explained. Leadership at all levels showed him how to think like his opponents, approach each situation

with a plan and gave him the ability to adapt when the situation changed. “We rely on each other so much that I think their names need to be on there,” said Lukas, struggling to explain why his name came out on top. “I’m not going to sit here and say I deserve something or not. I started out as Gunnery Sgt. Key’s team member for the last deployment, and all I did was what he trained me to do.”

“We end up closer than brothers because of the way we have to operate in our career field.” — Staff Sgt. Christopher Lukas His modest tone hid the fact that Lukas found a calling in the EOD field, which he joined after nearly eight years calibrating and repairing aviation equipment. The lessons of Key, West, Isele and many others found an open mind in Lukas, who claims a desire to learn as one of his greatest strengths. “At the end of the day, I learned everything I know from those guys,” said Lukas, who found himself a team leader halfway though his last deployment. “The tables have somewhat turned. We’re sitting here, and I’m training some new guys. I continually find myself saying, ‘I learned this from that guy, or I learned that from this guy.’ ” All that information came to a crossroads when he took on the role of team leader in

Afghanistan, where strategy and the safety of his team member became his top priority. Lukas worked in an area rife with improvised explosive devices. He said he couldn’t turn away when the call to lead came. “You live with them every day, and get to know their personalities,” said Lukas as he recalled the brotherhood and tragedies that thrust him into a leadership role. “Some of the best moments were just sitting and talking with those guys. Obviously the worst were whenever someone got hurt.” Lukas’ leadership responsibilities weighed heavily upon him. He took Key’s example to heart as he led Marines through the IED threats of Afghanistan, where Lukas found himself tempted to take on each hazard his team faced. “Everybody looks at somebody else and thinks, ‘I could never do that,’ ” said Lukas, “It basically boils down to your training and the people who are going to teach you what you need to know.” Every name has a place on that award, said Lukas. He believes he could not do his job without the support of his EOD family in the field, just as he could not do it without the support of his wife and children at home. He believes each one helped shape and protect the Marine that received the award.

Labor Day • September 3, 2012 •

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. 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

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 legis-

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 Peter 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 Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International

lation. 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

Gosling Games Color Me ‘Math class’

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, 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.

Navy training recognizes top performers Story, photo by Steve Vanderwerff NETC PAO

Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) recognized its top performers during an awards ceremony Aug. 16. Jeffrey Wells was selected 2011 Junior Civilian of the Year (CoY), a result of his superior performance as Government Commercial Purchase Card program coordinator and level three Activity Program Coordinator (APC) assistant for 134 subordinate commands throughout the NETC domain. “Mr. Wells’ amiable, courteous personality helped to foster a great working relationship with peers and subordinates alike and was a key factor ensuring the success of NETC and the Bureau of Personnel’s Government-wide Commercial Purchase Card program,” said Rear Adm. Don Quinn, NETC commander. Wells was cited for retaining his previous position’s level four APC duties when he assumed the additional duties of assistant level three APC. “Jeff’s extra efforts are what make the difference between a satisfactory program and a superior Navy best program,” said Wells’ supervisor, Cmdr. Derek Webster. “Having mastered every aspect of his previous position, Jeff successfully merged his previous responsibilities with his new position responsibilities and has aggressively mastering every

new challenge and job element.” Wells became a civil servant in April 2009 after spending 20 years in the Navy as an aviation storekeeper, several of those years with the Blue Angels, the Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron. “I’m flattered by my selection, especially because I work with such a talented collection of professionals here at NETC,” said Wells. “Being acknowledged for my performance this year wouldn’t be possible without the support I get from Logistics (N4) leadership and the remarkable work from all of the purchase card managers at our field activities.” Mike Dekle was selected 2011 Senior Civilian of the Year. He

was honored posthumously after his passing in July. “Sadly, Mr. Dekle passed away before we could recognize him, but his legacy of dedicated service will live on,” said Quinn. “His efforts greatly improved our relationship with the fleet and our ability to support their training needs.” Dekle served as the training effectiveness program analyst in the Planning and Analysis department at NETC headquarters. When he was recognized as Senior Civilian of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of 2011 Dekle said, “It has been very rewarding to help assess how our graduates do on the job, so we can recalibrate what we do in the future to improve our training.”

Dekle’s supervisor, Michele Harrison, Planning and Development branch head, says that Dekle’s passing has affected those who knew and worked with him, and that the work he did evaluating training effectiveness had a distinct, significant outcome on NETC programs and schoolhouses. “The loss of Mike has had an overwhelming effect on me and his co-workers. He is dearly missed,” she said. “Even though Mike had not been well he set the bar for others to emulate. He worked tirelessly with fleet stakeholders to gauge training’s contribution to graduates’ on-the-job performance and appraise training effectiveness. His astounding leadership and team-building skills created long-term relationships with Fleet Forces Command and Type Commanders (TYCOM) that will have far-reaching effects on Navy training and improve the efficiency of Sailors throughout the fleet. Mike’s achievements are indicative of the devotion, steadfastness, and professionalism with which he again and again performed his work.” Jennifer Jaffurs was recognized as Senior Civilian of the Quarter for the first quarter of 2012, a result of her exceptional performance as contract analyst and the outstanding support she provided to Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) in conjunction with Naval Education and Training Program Development Center

(NETPDC) for the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response-Leadership (SAPR-L) video production contract. “Contracting can be an underappreciated profession, so this recognition as staff civilian of the quarter is very nice,” said Jaffurs. “We have a great procurement team with outstanding support from our bosses, which makes this an extremely rewarding job.” Capt. Greg Harshberger, Supply and Logistics Division (N4) director is grateful for Jaffurs’ effort supporting the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) and Vice Chief of Naval Operations (VCNO) high-interest item and also meeting an extremely tight deadline for CNO directed training. “Ms. Jaffurs is my ‘go to’ source for contract issues,” said Harshberger. “She routinely makes the impossible reality, through focused customer service and superior communications, ensuring program compliance while providing mentorship and guidance.” After Wells, Dekle and Jaffurs were recognized, several staff members received length of service awards; Brian McCombs (15 years), Leighanne Eide and Charles Russell Jr. (25 years), Joy Samsel and Thomas Smith (30 years). Wilbert Harrison, Louise Jackson and James McDonold, who work at NETC’s operations department in Norfolk, Va., received letters of appreciation via video teleconference.

F-35 Lightning completes first airborne weapons separation By Victor Chen F-35 Integrated Test Force PAO

PATUXENT RIVER, Md. (NNS) — The F-35 Lightning II accomplished a significant test milestone earlier this month when the aircraft successfully released a weapon in flight. BF-3, a short take-off and vertical landing F-35 variant, executed an inert 1,000-pound GBU-32 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) separation weapon over water in an Atlantic test range while traveling at 400 knots at an altitude of 4,200 feet. “While this weapons separation test is just one event in a series of hundreds of flights and thousands of test points that we are executing this year, it does represent a significant entry into a new phase of testing for the F-35 program,” said Navy Capt. Erik Etz, director of testing for F-35 naval variants. “The release of a JDAM was the result of extraordinary effort by our team of maintainers, engineers, pilots and others who consistently work long hours

to deliver F-35 warfighting capability to the U.S. services and our international partners.” The release was the first time for any version of the F-35 to conduct an airborne weapon separation, as well as the first from an internal weapons bay for a fighter aircraft designated for the U.S. Marine Corps, the United Kingdom and Italy. The milestone marks the start of validating the F35’s capability to employ precision weapons and allow pilots to engage the enemy on the ground and in the air. “(Using an internal weapons bay) speaks to how much capability the Joint Strike Fighter is going to bring to the troops,” said Dan Levin, Lockheed Martin test pilot for the mission. “Stealth, fifth-generation avionics and precision weapons ... coupled with the flexible mission capability of the short take-off and vertical landing F-35B is going to be huge for our warfighters.” An aerial weapons separation test checks for proper release of the weapon from its carriage sys-

tem and trajectory away from the aircraft. It is the culmination of a significant number of prerequisite tests, including ground fit checks, ground pit drops and aerial captive carriage and environment flights to ensure the system is working properly before expanding the test envelope in the air. Aircraft and land-based test monitoring systems collected data from the successful separation, which is in review at the F-35 integrated test force at Naval Air Station Patuxent River. The F-35B is the variant of the Joint Strike Fighter designed for use by U.S. Marine Corps, as well as F-35 international partners in the United Kingdom and Italy. The F-35B is capable of short take-offs and vertical landings to enable air power projection from amphibious ships, ski-jump aircraft carriers and expeditionary airfields. The F-35B is undergoing test and evaluation at NAS Patuxent River and Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., prior to delivery to the fleet.

released in 2001 and tied “The Beatles Anthology” for the most consecutive weeks at number one on Billboard’s Top 200 chart (eight weeks).

The band disbanded in 2004 before reuniting in 2009 for a tour and the “Full Circle” album, which featured the top 10 hit “Overcome.” In early 2012, the band reconvened to tour and work on a fifth album.

Meetings are held from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month. If you would like to attend, call 452-5990, ext. 3122.
