CNATT: Make Labor Day weekend safety a priority Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Public Affairs

The Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) safety manager is reminding service members, civilian employees and their families to maintain safety awareness as they prepare for what is generally viewed as the end of summer. CNATT Safety Manager Krystal Hancock said that Labor Day, a federal holi-

day designed to honor the achievements of American workers, includes an extended weekend, with service members and their families often electing to travel to see family and friends. “Whether taking a long road trip or simply jumping in the car to run a quick errand, driving is inherently risky, and traffic mishaps continue to

be a leading reason for lost time, days, and lives across our force,” she said. Hancock said the National Safety Council (NSC) predicts this could be the deadliest Labor Day weekend for drivers in eight years, estimating that more than 430 people could be killed in traffic accidents throughout the Labor Day weekend. She added that service members, often sepa-

rated from their families and travelling significant distances to visit during the long weekend, should take some simple precautions before and during their trips. “Get enough rest before heading outsleepy driving is as dangerous as impaired driving,” she said. “Alternate drivers or take frequent breaks to ensure that whoever is behind the wheel stays alert.” See Labor Day on page 2

‘Be There’ for your shipmates during Suicide Prevention Month 2016 By James Rosenfelder U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery public affairs

NAS Pensacola to host 9/11 commemoration ceremony ... In commemoration of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, Naval Air Station Pensacola will present a ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard the base at 10 a.m. Sept. 9. The event will include a guest speaker and a musical rendition from the NATTC Choir, a traditional “two-bell” ceremony, honors performed by the NASP Honor Guard and a 21-gun volley. The public is invited to attend.

Navy Medicine recognizes September as National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, which began Sept. 1. The theme for Suicide Prevention Month 2016 is “Be There.” Throughout the month, Navy Medicine will highlight the power of peer support and personal wellness, encouraging Sailors and Marines to be there for their shipmates. “Action starts with prevention,” said Vice Adm. Forrest Faison, Navy surgeon general and chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BuMed). “When a Sailor needs assistance, easy access to support resources and mental health treatment is essential, as is validation of help-seeking behaviors.” Suicide prevention is a yearlong effort. Suicide Prevention Month serves as a reminder that building resilience and preventing suicide requires all

members of the Navy and Marine Corps community to work together. Every life lost to suicide is one too many. “Take action if you notice anything

out of the ordinary for a shipmate; reach out to them,” Faison said. “If you are having difficulties, seek help if See Prevention on page 2

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,

Classic combo sparks the yard sale booty blues By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

“I’ll give you 30 bucks for all of it,” the man said in a heavy Rhode Island accent, gesturing to a table heaped with vintage toys from my childhood that I had decided to sell at a recent neighborhood yard sale. “Are you kidding me?” I blurted incredulously. “No way,” I continued, “I could get that much on eBay for just the Dawn Dolls … and you want my Holly Hobby sewing machine, my Sunshine Family, my Barbies, and my Bionic Woman Doll, complete with the original box and accessories, too? What, are you nuts?” A crowd of yard sale-ers stopped milling about my folding tables heaped with used junk to witness our banter. As the Rhode Island con artist did his best to swindle me out of the beloved toys that I had refused to part with through nine military moves, I realized that my inside hoarder was getting the better of me. It’s time to give up old things, I told myself. But my inside hoarder resisted total surrender: “Gimme $35 at least!”

How to submit a commentary

In the end, I settled for $32 and stood back as he callously threw my precious relics into his van. “Be careful,” I shouted pathetically, “You almost dropped the Bionic Woman’s Morse code translator.” Two hours after our yard sale had ended, my husband, Francis, and I were headed to a Connecticut casino with a Ziplock baggie stuffed with $276 of yard sale booty, along with tickets to the Counting Crows/Rob Thomas concert that night. “Make it rain, baby,” I yelled from the passenger’s seat of our minivan, jingling the baggie and envisioning a wild night of prime cuts of beef, top-shelf cocktails, double-or-nothing winnings and sweaty rock songs. The Mohegan Sun Casino Resort appeared quite suddenly in the Connecticut woods, and with our baggie securely stashed in my fanny pack, we found our way inside. I pictured us shouting excitedly over a crowded roulette wheel or muttering “Hit me” at a suspense-filled blackjack table, but we were lost in the indoor jungle of flashing lights, ringing bells and cigarette smoke.

After five minutes, we cashed in our whopping $8 in

winnings and went to one of the many casino restaurants, where we shared a delicious stack of chicken and waffles drenched in Vermont maple syrup and sprinkled with crispy onion straws before heading to the concert. Thomas took the stage singing recognizable tunes such as “This Is How a Heart Breaks,” “Her Diamonds” and “Someday.” We would normally leap to our feet at a concert, but we had gotten up early for the yard sale, and we were both feeling full from dinner. Besides, most of the crowd of 40-to-60-year-olds stayed seated too, with the exception of a surprising number of women, whose perimenopausal hormones were compelling them to gyrate their capri-ensconced hips quite enthusiastically. The women reached out longingly to Thomas, and being a 40something himself, he obliged with an excellent performance. “Oh good grief,” I cringed halfway through the show, after Francis let a belch slip by that reeked of those onion straws. “Sorry,” he confessed. “Do you have any Tums in that

fanny pack?” The next act was the one Francis had been waiting for. Back in the 1990s, he played Counting Crows’ “August and Everything After” album a zillion times on our old CD player. “Time to get sweaty,” he said as lead singer Adam Duritz took the stage. But soon it was clear that we were all getting a little too old for these late-night endeavors. Duritz, now 52 himself and endowed with an ample gut, loped around the stage as if he suffered from joint degeneration. We felt Duritz’s pain literally and figuratively, as we shifted in our seats to ward off hip numbness. Although Duritz displayed his true artistry on the stage that night, the middle-aged crowd was not long for this world, fighting back yawns by 10 p.m. “For criminy’s sake, Honey,” I winced on our way home after Francis expelled another pungent belch. The strange combination of the day’s events had taught me that, getting rid of old things in life won’t stop the sands of time. Just like Francis’ crispy onion straws, the years will just keep on repeating.

• 241 years of history and heritage • America’s Sailor: Tough, bold and ready •

Origins of the U.S. Navy seal From Naval History and Heritage Command


he first American Navy seal was adopted by the Continental Congress May 4, 1780, for the Board of Admiralty, progenitor of the Navy Department. This seal was affixed to naval officer commissions, and was as follows: “The arms, 13 bars mutually supporting each other, alternate red and white in a blue field, and surmounting an anchor proper. The crest a ship under sail. The motto Sustentans et Sustentatum. The legend U.S.A. Sigil. Naval.” The ship on the seal wore a national ensign at the stern and a commission pennant atop the mainmast. The Continental Navy of the American Revolution went out of existence in 1785 with the sale of the last ship, USS Alliance. When a separate Navy Department was founded in 1798, the Board of Admiralty seal was no longer used. Naval officer commissions from 1798 to 1849 carried a distinctly different seal which contained the basic elements of the current official seal – the sea, ship under sail, eagle and anchor. The seal again underwent change about 1850 as the design came even closer to that which

is in use today. Neither the 1798 nor the 1850 seal seems to have had any specific authorization. The century following the appearance of the 1850 design witnessed variations in the position and shape of the eagle, ship and anchor. Sometimes land was shown on the seal, and at other times only water. Likewise, the several Navy bureaus and offices employed a variety of seal designs. For years prior to 1957, when the present seal was adopted, military and civilian officials within the Navy expressed the need for an official seal of uniform design. Naval records reveal an interest in and awareness of the many variations which had crept into the seal details. Concerted effort to arrive at a redesigned standard seal for use by the Navy, afloat and ashore, awaited the post-World War II period. Recommendations from secretaries of the Navy, heraldic experts, and historians resulted

in this final seal design approved by President Dwight Eisenhower, and promulgated by Executive Order 10736 on Oct. 23, 1957: On a circular background of fair sky and moderate sea with land in sinister base, a three-masted square-rigged ship underway before a fair breeze with after topsail furled, commission pennant atop the foremast, National Ensign atop the main, and the commodore’s flag atop the

mizzen. In front of the ship a Luce-type anchor inclined slightly bendwise with the crown resting on the land and, in front of the shank and in back of the dexter fluke, an A m e r ican bald eagle rising to sini s t e r regarding to dexter, one foot on the ground, the other resting on the anchor near the shank; all in proper colors. The whole within a blue annulet bearing the inscrip tion “Department of the Navy” at top,

and “United States of America” at the bottom, separated on each side by a mullet and within a rim in the form of a rope; inscription, rope, mullet, and edges of annulet all gold. Land in the design would symbolize the Navy’s supporting shore facilities as well as the fleet's amphibious strike capabilities. Since the wording “Navy Department,” used on earlier seals, had generally come to signify only the headquarters activities in Washington, the inscription was changed to “Department of the Navy” in order to embrace the Navy’s total worldwide operations afloat, in the air, and ashore. The seal was to serve as the main feature of the official United States Navy flag, adopted in 1959.

Whiting Pines community provides school supplies for NASWF families Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Marissa Tungjunyatham NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs


s part of Operation Homefront’s Back-to-School Brigade program, the Balfour Beatty Communities and Whiting Pines housing hosted a back-toschool bash Aug. 19 to support Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) military and DoD families. With the help of MWR and NASWF Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), Balfour Beatty was able to provide the children with fun activities and bounce houses while they handpicked their book bag of supplies for the next school year. Inside the Whiting Pines Community Center, children and their parents walked through rows of school supplies that ranged from pencils and erasers to folders and planners of all kinds. A total of about 5,000 to 10,000 individual items were donated to the back-toschool bash. Operation Home-

front provided a wide variety of drawstring book bags for the children to choose from. Dollar Tree donated the plethora of school supplies, while Chris Hendrix, the NAS Whiting Field school liaison officer, contributed 75 packs of college-rule binder paper through the school liaison program. In addition, United Services Organization (USO) donated DVDs of Disney movies for the children to pick out. Children of all ages were present and excited to pick out items they needed for the next school year.

First-grader Karissa Howell hands the schools supplies she wants to her great grandmother Selina Gajus during the back-to-school bash held for the NAS Whiting Field Whiting Pines community as part of Operation Homefront’s Back-to-School Brigade Aug. 19 in Milton.

“I’m happy I get to use these for school,� first-grade student Karissa Howell said. Teresa Morrell, the Lifeworks Coordinator for Balfour Beatty Communities, has volunteered with Operation Homefront for five years. She mentioned that this was the first year that the Back-toSchool Brigade came to the NASWF community. In previ-

ous years, families had to travel to NAS Pensacola, but this year Balfour Beatty Communities volunteered Whiting Pines to host the school supplies giveaway. By the end of the event, a total of 48 book bags of school supplies were given out to 48 children. Operation Homefront’s mission is to provide short-term and critical assistance, as well as

long-term stability and recurring support programs for military families. Through their Back-to-School Brigade program, they distributed more than 25,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to military children across the country. “It’s really amazing,� Alicia Knight, a mother of two children said. “It’s nice for them do this all for our kids.�

NASWF Sailors serve with Habitat for Humanity Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Dat Nghiem NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Eleven Sailors from Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) got down and dirty with Habitat for Humanity to help a less fortunate family. The group showed up early Aug. 20 to lay down sod for a newly constructed home near Destin. Volunteers spent more than four hours raking dirt, placing gravel and laying sod on the property.

More than five full pallets of sod were delivered to the site along with a few bags of gravel and freshly grown plants. The service members made sure that no time was wasted and worked together to ensure the landscaping looked presentable for the family. Crew leader Richard Freeman stated that the biggest reward of his job Naval Air Station Whiting Field Sailors work with Habiis that it enables the com- tat for Humanity while prepping and leveling the dirt to munity to work side by lay sod at a newly constructed home near Destin. side with each other to He explained that the or- also want to contribute to achieve a common goal. “We’re a hand up, not a ganization provided its the building process of hand out,� Freeman said. services to people who their property.



“Working with the local community is a significant aspect of the job,� he said. Freeman believes an important function of the organization is to allow people to have fun yet accomplish the mission at hand for those in need. Habitat for Humanity is an international non-profit organization and has been providing basic home construction and preservation services in communities around the world for more than 40 years. The local Pensacola chapter

recruits volunteers to help with the projects and provides homeowners with a chance to work on their own homes. Habitat for Humanity often works multiple projects a day from Tuesdays through Saturdays. AB2 David Wasickanin, a Scout manager for Cub Scout Pack No. 655 in Pensacola, participated alongside his shipmates. “I love working with my hands,� Wasickanin said. “It’s all about the community and helping people.�

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


“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 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 Matthew 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.

Word Search ‘American states’ H F N U N Y I O E P K P K Y J

















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.

planning modules, a look at mobile training seams, and discussions about the Navywide Sailor 2025 initiative, “Ready, Relevant Learning.” “There’s a lot of changes coming and it’s important to have all of our individuals come in from all over the world to understand our new current policies and the new way ahead,” said Dr. Tony

Catanese, CNATT learning standards officer. “We’re ensuring the curriculum is where it needs to be to get the Sailor or Marine to the fleet with the right information at the right time.”

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click:; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, 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. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
