Region Southeast changes command Story, photo by MC1 (SW) Greg Johnson Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) – Commander, Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE) held a change of command ceremony aboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville Aug. 29. During the ceremony, Rear Adm. Rick Williamson relieved Rear Adm. John C. “Jack” Scorby Jr. as the region’s commander. “I can now attest first hand that the flawless reputation this region enjoys around the fleet is extremely well deserved,” Williamson said. “I am amazed not only at the quality of programs at our installations, but also the sheer magnitude of Sailors and families you serve throughout the region. I’m sure it will be an honor and a privilege to work with each of you over the next couple years.” Williamson is a Jacksonville native and a 1985 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, where he earned a bache-

lor’s in computer science. He also holds a master’s in business administration from the Naval Post Graduate School and is a graduate of the Armed Forces Staff College. Williamson reported to CNRSE from his previous assignment as Commander, Navy Region Midwest. Vice Adm. William D. French, commander, Naval Installations Command, was guest speaker at the ceremony. “Rear Adm. Williamson is an outstanding naval officer with significant operational experience as a surface warfare officer,” French said during his remarks. “I know he’s excited to be back home in Jacksonville (Florida) and ready for the great challenges and rewards that this region offers.” Scorby, who was awarded the Legion of Vice Adm.

AOC Lucas Kneipp, a native of Shreveport, La., and an instructor at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC), was commissioned a chief warrant officer (CWO) during a ceremony Aug. 30.

Family, friends, well-wishers and staff gathered inside NATTC’s John Finn Memorial Hangar to see Kneipp’s transition from chief petty officer to “mustang.” Capt. Alan Dean, NATTC’s commanding officer, presided over the ceremony and watched as Kneipp passed his chief’s anchors down to the next generation of chiefs.

Marine Corps Gunnery Sgt.Tavares Bush, AOC Joshua Shryock and AOC Michael Holmes removed the anchors from Kneipp’s collars and his chief petty officer cover, signifying the beginning of his transition from the chief’s mess to the wardroom. Kniepp then passed his chief’s anchors down to AO1 Glenn Kirkland and AO1 Richard Corrigan, expressing the hope that they will one day wear them as chief petty officers. Afterward, with the help of his family, Kneipp put on his new officer’s uniform insignia. His wife, Kelly; daughter, Julie; and son, Dylan, placed his warrant officer shoulder boards on his shirt and his officer’s combination cover on his head. “The support of my family and co-workers, the values my parents instilled in me growing up, and the hard work of many Sailors that I have led, brought me the success I have had to this point in my career,” said Kneipp. “It’s important that the best Sailors in the fleet come back as instructors to training center’s such as NATTC, as I did, to pass their experience down to the next generation of Sailors.

Navy Suicide Prevention Month From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

Suicide prevention goes beyond training people to recognize risk factors, warning signs or what to do in a crisis. You may not realize it, but suicide prevention happens every day when you do something kind for someone who did not expect it, or just take the time to actually listen to someone when you ask how they’re doing. It’s hard to quantify exactly how many lives you’re impacting or how you’re impacting them, but the one fact you can count on is that the little things you do mean something big to someone else. Often when we realize that we’ve helped others, we have a renewed sense of purpose and contribution even when we’re experiencing

our own challenges and setbacks. Each September, the armed forces recognize Suicide Prevention Month to encourage ongoing proactive conversations about stress so service members and their families feel more comfortable seeking help. The Navy’s theme for Suicide Prevention Month this year is “Thrive in Your Community.” Recent Navy THRIVE communications focus on the importance of taking actions to help people grow in the face of stressors. The ability to thrive is the next step in building resilience and solidifying the relationship between personal responsibility and supportive communities. This year’s Suicide

Naval training employee earns 55-year service award Story, photo by Ens. Jacqui Wengler NETC PAO

An employee at Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) was honored recently when he was presented the Secretary of the Navy (SecNav) Career Service Award in recognition for 55 years of government service. James Kight received the award, signed by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, during his 29th year of civil service, which was preceded by 26 years serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. Rear Adm. Don Quinn, NETC commander, presented the award during an award ceremony held at the Naval Aviation Medical Institute (NAMI) auditorium onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. “American patriots like Jim Kight built this country,” said Quinn. “As a young man, he volunteered to defend our republic, and then continued his service as a dedicated civilian. His drive and spirit are representative of the traits we find in all our outstanding people throughout the training and education domain.” Kight entered the Marine Corps in the enlisted ranks in 1953 and retired with the rank of captain. He has since served in federal civil service. During his civilian career, Kight has served with NETC as a supply systems analyst, program manager for staff supply support, minor property manager and casualty representative coordinator. “I manage all of the personal property for ManCWO from page 1

Glenn Dietrick, Kight’s supervisor and head of NETC logistics and staff supply, commended Kight for his dedication to serve. “This is a tremendous achievement for Mr. Jim Kight,” said Dietrick. “The fact that he not only served his country through 26 years in the Marine Corps, but has continued to serve diligently as a civilian since 1980. He is a testament of true service and commitment.” Driven by a job that constantly keeps him inspired, Kight said his greatest accomplishment during the past 55 years was his time serving as an infantry platoon leader in Vietnam. “As a combat platoon leader you have the responsibility for more than 30 men,” recalled Kight. “The responsibility is to get all of them home safe and alive. When I would lose a member, it was like losing a child of mine. I have seven brave men whose names are on the Vietnam Memorial wall in Virginia and it really devastates me to visit it. “I look back and ask myself, where did the days and years go the past 59 years,” recalled Kight. “It James Kight, left, accepts the SecNav Career Service seems like yesterday.

“As a prior aviation ordnanceman, I’m always proud to see a fellow AO become an officer; but, I’m just as proud to see any member of the command apply and get selected as a limited duty officer or chief warrant officer or, one of the other commissioning programs offered by the Navy and Marine Corps. Kneipp is the second mustang to be commissioned at NATTC in 2013 with several others to be commissioned before the end of the fiscal year. He is a fine example of the many opportunities for career advancement that instructor duty provides,” said Dean. “For more than 70 years since its creation in

1943, outstanding instructors such as Kneipp have been training technical experts in support of the Naval Aviation Enterprise. I’m happy he chose to continue his career as a Navy mustang.” NATTC’s Aviation Ordnance Training Officer Lt. Marvin Bartholomew, also a mustang, administered the oath of office. After swearing in the oath, Kneipp received his first salutes as an officer from Bush and Shryock. In accordance with tradition, after returning each salute, Kneipp handed them each a silver dollar. Prior to becoming the new squadron gunner and ordnance branch officer

with the “Screaming Eagles” of Patrol Squadron One (VP-1) in Whidbey Island, Wash., Kneipp will attend Limited Duty Officer/Chief Warrant Officer School in Newport, R.I., and the Aviation Ordnance Officer Career Progression Course in Milton.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins 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,

Prevention Month theme underscores that concept, highlighting a sense of community and purpose as protective factors during times of adversity. We’re all in this together and by helping others, you help yourself. To support “Thrive in Your Community” efforts, Sailors are encouraged to get together and make a difference to others. There is no mandatory requirement or minimum level of engagement. You can work on a service project in town as a unit, organize an awareness walk/run around your installation for your shipmates and their families, or develop a public service announcement as a Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions chapter. It’s up to you. Remember, suicide prevention is an all hands evolution. So family and civilian involvement is encouraged. By stepping outside of yourselves and your everyday focus to make an impact and share an emotional connection, you’re not only investing time in others, but also in yourself. The Navy’s Suicide Prevention month initiatives are a launch pad for year-round local efforts to build resilience and cohesion, navigate stress and promote a culture supportive of seeking help as a sign of strength. Throughout the month, resources will be released to increase collective awareness and bring conversations about healthy stress navigation to the forefront. Make sure you follow us to get the latest updates. Together, Sailors can help each other thrive, not just survive. For more information on Navy Suicide Prevention Month, reference NavAdmin 212/13.

NMCRS depends on volunteers to complete mission By Gil Chase Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society volunteer

I

am a Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) volunteer with NMCRS Pensacola. As the “communications lead,” part of my job is to communicate our mission, programs and services to those we serve and to those who might help support us. This part of my job is pretty easy because we are well known, and satisfied clients help “spread the word.” In addition, we have a great website at www.nmcrs.org that describes our mission and services simply and thoroughly. This website is supplemented by a blog and presence on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube, as well as articles that appear in Gosport and newsletters that we send to all area commands. A more difficult part of my job is to help recruit, with dignity, volunteers we can depend on to do “what is right” for our military clients and their families. Since our volunteers will be making decisions that can impact our clients’ lives, we must recruit only those who will be dedicated, caring, compassionate, objective and non-judgmental. And, we

must seek only those who truly want to volunteer and serve those who need assistance. Indeed, we anticipate that many of our volunteers will fill leadership positions and some might even become qualified to seek employment with NMCRS. You might not be aware of the fact that more than 90 percent of the NMCRS staff are volunteers; they are the backbone of our organization and provide most of the assistance that you might receive at our Pensacola office as well as our other 250 locations around the world. Our volunteers typically perform one or more of these functions: • Greet clients, schedule appointments and review applications. • Interview and process requests for financial assistance. • Conduct budget counseling.

• Provide administrative and communications support. • Present financial instruction for expectant parents. • Knit, crochet and quilt baby blankets. • Inspect, sort, price and display merchandise donated to our thrift shops. • Perform cashier duties at our thrift shops. • Schedule and train new volunteers. • Perform leadership duties for our various programs. Obviously, we have to trust and depend on our volunteers to do what needs to be done, frequently without supervision. You might wonder why we are almost always seeking volunteers, so here is some insight. If each volunteer donates three to four hours one morning or afternoon a week, we need at least 20 different volunteers each day (100 volunteers per week) to perform our services. Fortunately, some of our volunteers donate either a full day or two half days per week, so we manage to survive and carry out our mission with a staff of about 50 to 60 volunteers and three employees. Unfortunately, only about 20 of our volunteers are regular long-timers; the other 30 to 40 are short-timers due to

transfers, employment, college, motherhood, etc., and they must be constantly replaced by new “quality” volunteers who will require training before they can be productive. Consequently, we are almost always recruiting. Who can volunteer? Volunteers may be: • Military spouses. • Active-duty personnel. • Retirees and their spouses. • Civilians. • College students. • Relatives of NMCRS employees. We always have new volunteer openings available at our office and thrift shop. In fact, my wife, who is currently a cashier at our thrift shop on Corry Station, is hoping to see some new potential

cashiers in the near future. Volunteering at the NMCRS thrift shop would be a wonderful way to acquire retail store experience for those who might later seek that type of employment. And, by the way, there are other openings for volunteers at our thrift shop and at the NMCRS office. For more information specific to NMCRS Pensacola, call 452-2300 and ask for Ginny Goodman, Amanda Shadden or Jackie Whitney. You can also visit the NASP NMCRS office at 91 Radford Blvd. and pick up a “Volunteer Today” brochure.

NAVFAC proudly building on 171-year Navy heritage

Naval Academy Class of 2015 commits to five years of military service

By Don Rochon NavFac PAO

Story, photo by MC1(AW/SW) Tony Spiker

WA S H I N G T O N (NNS) – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) marked 171 years of providing facilities engineering expertise to support the mission readiness of Navy and Marine Corps commanders Aug. 31. The 13th Secretary of the Navy, Abel P. Upshur, officially established NavFac’s predecessor, the Bureau of Naval Yards and Docks, in 1842 to execute the design, construction and maintenance of Navy yards and a few other shore stations around the Eastern seaboard of the United States. Eventually the bureau and its responsibilities would grow into the global enterprise known as NavFac, which was officially established in May 1966. “I could not be more proud of our history and what our NavFac team, around the world, is accomplishing today for our supported commanders, the joint warfighter and their families,” said NavFac Commander and Chief of Civil Engineers Rear Adm. Kate Gregory. “We are fortunate to have an exemplary team of Civil Engineer Corps officers, Seabees and NavFac civilians, along with our contractor partners, who are on the job 24/7 building and maintaining sustainable facilities, delivering utilities and services, and providing Navy expeditionary combat force capabilities to Navy and Marine Corps commanders wherever and whenever needed.” NavFac’s Public Works Departments respond to facilities service and emergency calls in a demanding 24/7 environment. This critical work is a vital enabler for what takes place daily on bases around the world. For more news from Naval Facilities Engineering Command, visit www.navy.mil/local/navfachq/.

NNAPOLIS, Md. (NNS) – Have you ever made a decision that locks you into a commitment for seven years of your life? A lot happens in seven years. It is a decision that must not be made lightly. The class of 2015 at the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) just made that “two for seven” decision Aug. 17. Freshman year at the USNA: “Plebe year.” You are dealing with constant running through Bancroft Hall, tackling a full academic load in this – for many – the first semesters of one’s college experience. You are memorizing military professional knowledge, fulfilling athletic commitments and learning to be a part of the Naval Academy team. Then comes sophomore year. “Youngsters” become mentors to the new class of plebes and experience a more challenging set of academic requirements. They are extended more opportunities for liberty and are fresh from their first summer of military training and leave. For plebes and youngsters, they all have the same option at any point of those two years – they can walk away. They have the option of resigning from the academy, transferring to another institution and pursuing another life outside of USNA

... with no commitment to the military. In a manner of speaking, those first two years are “on the house.” However, when midshipmen return to the yard at the start of their junior year, they are faced with a decision. Having received two valuable years of education, are they willing to sign the papers that commit them to seven more years of service to their country – another two years of a rigorous physical and academic schedule followed by five years of service in the Navy or Marine Corps? That is the decision the Class of 2015 faced during the Naval Academy’s “two for seven” ceremony: to sign, or not to sign. By signing the commitment papers, members of the class of 2015 acknowledge that they will remain at the Naval Academy for their junior and senior years, and accept a commission into the Navy or Marine Corps upon successful completion of their academic re-

quirements. “The risk is the commitment,” said Cmdr. Daniel Olson, third battalion officer. “You owe either service or money past this point. The consequences are much greater.” The Naval Academy marked the occasion of the class of 2015’s “two for seven” decision with a commitment dinner Aug. 20. Vice Adm. Mike Miller, USNA superintendent, and Capt. William Byrne, USNA Commandant of Midshipmen, both attended the dinner and offered congratulations. For some, like MIDN2 Paul Rand from Kerry, Ill., it was an easy decision. “I love it here,” Rand said. “I had no hesitation at all. I thrive on the chal-

lenge of this place.” Challenges are not in short supply for Rand, a member of the wrestling team who juggles two practices a day with his academic major of applied mathematics. “I find I am lucky if I get five hours a sleep a night,” he said. The demands placed on midshipmen, however, exist for a purpose. Soon these young men and women will be asked to lead Sailors and Marines in real-world situations where mistakes have real consequences. “If you are not sure, if you are not all in, then this is not the place for you,” said CMDCM Russell Smith, the Naval Academy senior enlisted

adviser. After spending time with friends on summer leave, the temptations of civilian college life can be tempting when contrasted against the rigorous schedule of a mid. “There is always a bit of jealousy when I see my friends back home,” said MIDN2 Ben Bittel. “But then you remember why you came here in the first place, and it’s all better.” For a 20-year-old midshipman, a seven-year commitment means one third of a lifetime – not something that should be signed away lightly. On reflection, Olson added, “I graduated 22 years ago and given the choice I would definitely do it all over again.”

Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center launches stress reduction tool for Sailors and Marines From Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center Public Affairs

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (NNS) – The Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) announced Aug. 27 the launch of their new web-based tool designed to help Sailors and Marines reduce psychological and physical wear and tear through deep relaxation and focus. “Relax Relax,” NMCPHC’s online resource, offers techniques to help improve mood, performance and promote resilience while providing methods to man-

age stress. “We are excited to launch the Relax Relax tool for Sailors, Marines and their families,” said Dr. Mark Long, psychological health and emotional well-being coordinator of NMCPHC Health Promotion and Wellness (HPW) department. “This tool can be used by anyone in any number of situations, from the stressors a person faces day to day at home or work to the bigger challenges that affect their lives.” The Relax Relax tool includes nine sections with relaxation techniques that are applied by listening to audio tracks. These tracks come from a variety of

universities, organizations, and expert individuals, feature a variety of styles, music and voices to allow the user to select their preference. The main techniques include: • Breathing exercises: learning to breathe slowly and rhythmically, sometimes with a count or image. • Muscle relaxation techniques: learning to systematically tighten and release muscle groups throughout the body. • Imagery: picturing a certain image or task with detail given to the senses to allow mental focus. • Meditation and mindful-

ness: mind-body techniques used to create inner calm. • Instrumental music: specifically selected to promote a state of relaxation or well-being. Military service members are showing an increased interest in complementary and alternative options for assistance with stress relief, anxiety, insomnia, mood and general health.

LHD 5 team checks in for crash training Story, photo by Lt. Jonathan Bacon Naval Air Techincal Training Center PAO

A

flight deck crash and salvage team from the amphibious assault ship USS Bataan (LHD 5) completed refesher training at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Aug. 24. During their week at the training center, team members received hands-on training in fighting flight deck fires, proper crash and salvage procedures, and safely lifting and moving damaged aircraft using a crane. Bataan’s crash and salvage team came to NATTC onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) for the specialized training to bring new members up to speed and to refresh veteran members’ skills. In addition, Bataan’s team was the first to go through the crash and salvage training course following recent revisions. “The hands-on training we get at NATTC is a quintessential element to being ready for our next deployment,” said ABH 1 Sheldon Popo, Bataan’s crash and salvage team leading petty officer. “Since the last time we were down here, we have swapped out more than 60 percent of the crash and salvage team personnel. The new team members have never done crash and salvage work, and all need the hands-on experience they get here. On the ship, we can’t practice firefighting with live fire on actual aircraft or crash procedures on actual aircraft, but here we can. NATTC’s training and equip-

ment will help our team be ready for an actual crash.” Popo was a part of the team last time they came to Pensacola, and he said the recent changes to the course have greatly increased its value. “We can now go inside the burning aircraft, and move the aircraft that apply to us on a big deck amphibious assault ship,” he said. “These improvements make this training even more realistic.” The added level of realism was one of the reasons the course was changed. ABHC Geoffrey Wyatt, NATTC’s Shipboard Crash and Salvage Course leading chief petty officer, explained that the fleet provided feedback on ways to improve the realism of the training. “The changes requested by the fleet were easy to safely implement, and we were able to quickly update the course and make it more realistic. The goal of the course is to make the experience as close as possible to what a crash and salvage crew will actually do in an emergency. “Now when we train with the Mobile Aircraft Firefighting Training Device (MAFTD), we have them use the A/S 32 P-25 firefighting vehicle to clear a path through the fire to the air-

craft door. The team then proceeds inside of the smoke filled MAFTD, retrieves ‘Rescue Randy,’ the simulated crewman, and then egress the aircraft,” Wyatt said. Another element added to the training allows the team to continue through the MAFTD using a Naval Firefighting Thermal Imager (NFTI) to locate any remaining hot spots that need to be extinguished and cooled. “All of these changes make the training more realistic, and place the tasks in the order that the teams will have to conduct them during an actual emergency in the fleet,” Wyatt said. “We have reduced the amount of classroom training and increased the amount of hands on lab training. All of this hands-on training is conducted in a safe

and controlled environment under the supervision of our crash and salvage subject matter experts, who have returned from the fleet to instruct at NATTC.” Since its commissioning in 1942, NATTC has been committed to delivering training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy and Marine students annually. The majority of the student population is made up of enlisted personnel attending “A” schools, where they are learning the skills and knowledge required to perform as apprentice level technicians in the fleet. The center also provides airman apprenticeship training, personal financial management, and shipboard aircraft firefighting

training. Advanced schools provide higher level technical knowledge for senior petty officers, and technical training for officers in aviation fuels, carrier air traffic control center operations, amphibious air traffic control center operations, aircraft launch and recovery equipment, and shipboard aircraft fire fighting. Additionally, NATTC supports the fleet by providing team training to ships personnel during their pre-deployment work-ups, to ensure that shipboard personnel have the proficiency required to take their ship on deployment, after a prolonged period in port.

The graduation also marked the end of the foreseeable future for the program at Whiting Field due to recent national budget cuts. STARBASE-Atlantis is an Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs program that focuses on bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) related topics to elementary school students. During the summer, the program operates much like a science camp, and targets local children who many not have the opportunity to receive such science-specific education throughout the school year by providing access to the program for free. According to the STARBASE-Atlantis program website, STARBASEAtlantis “academies serve students that are historically under-represented in STEM. Students who live in inner cities or rural locations,

those who are socio-economically disadvantaged, low in academic performance or have a disability are in the target group.” Military involvement is a key aspect of the program, as the use of military volunteers to assist civilian educators exposes youth to positive role models who can relate their own careers to the STEM training in the classroom and help the students explore “realworld” applications of the topics they discuss. Ens. Mike Cellini, a NAS Whiting Field student pilot and STARBASE-Atlantis volunteer, spent a week with a class of fourth grade students, assisting civilian educators in organizing daily lessons, helping students in their activities, and bringing a military element into the classroom environment. He noted that his favorite part of the program was getting to interact with children who are cu-

rious about topics that relate to a military environment. “After working in a military profession with peers your age and older, it is a relief to take a step back and remember where it all started for a lot of us. The topics and activities the program offers are the basis for science classes that continued well into my high school and college courses,” he said. “It was great to hear these kids take an interest in the topics covered, and I realized they offer interesting and different perspectives on many topics.” The program uses

hands-on learning to help students grasp basic engineering principles and apply them to a specific goal – whether it be to launch a rocket or design an all-terrain vehicle. Projects are approached in a team and goal-oriented environment, with supervision from both military volunteers and civilian program instructors. Cellini observed that the reach of the program often extended far beyond the topics at hand. “The program’s goal is not (just) to teach the kids as much about science in a week,” he stated. “The goal of the program is to

spark an interest in their minds that will carry on with them and push them forward to explore the world around them. I honestly feel even in such a small amount of time they achieve this goal above and beyond. The kids are eager each morning to find out what they will learn that day and leave with an anticipation to learn something new the next day.” The STARBASE-Atlantis Whiting Field program has graduated 15,356 students since its opening, bringing memorable experiences to the students – and certainly in Cellini’s case – the

teachers as well. Cellini is an advocate for military involvement in the program. “Just being there in my flight suit contributed to the program. There is a ton of respect and admiration when it comes to wearing a uniform in front of a bunch of fourth graders. They see you as the coolest person in the room and want to be you. I was there to answer any questions they had about the military and flying in general. Also, I felt I allowed them to see that what they were learning in the classroom directly relates to what we do in the military as pilots.”

Emergency

Preparedness

Month

In September, remember: have a plan From www.ready.gov

Preparing makes sense. The likelihood that you and your family will survive a house fire depends as much on having a working smoke detector and an exit strategy, as on a well-trained fire department. The same is true for surviving a terrorist attack or another emergency. We must have the tools and plans in place to make it on our own, at least for a period of time, no matter where we are when disaster strikes. Just like having a working smoke detector, preparing for the unexpected makes sense. Get ready now.

Get a kit. Get a kit of emergency supplies. Be prepared to improvise and use what you have on hand to make it on your own for at least three days, maybe longer. While there are many things that might make you more comfortable, think first about fresh water, food and clean air. Consider two kits. In one, put everything you will need to stay where you are and make it on your own. The other should be a lightweight, smaller version you can take with you if you have to get away. You’ll need a gallon of water per person per day for drinking and sanitation. Include in the kits a three-day supply of non-perishable foods that are easy to store and prepare such as protein bars, dried fruit or canned foods. If you live in a cold weather climate, include warm clothes and a sleeping bag for each member of the family. Some potential terrorist attacks could send tiny microscopic “junk” into the air. Many of these materials can only hurt you if they get into your body, so think about creating a barrier between yourself and any contamination. It’s smart to have something for each member of the family that covers their mouth and nose, such as two to three layers of a cotton T-shirt, handkerchief or towel or filter masks, readily available in hardware stores. It is very important that the mask or other material fit your face snugly so that most of the air you breathe comes through the mask, not around it. Do whatever you can to make the best fit possible for children. Also, include duct tape and heavyweight garbage bags or plastic sheeting that can be used to seal windows and doors if you need to create a barrier between yourself and any potential contamination outside.

Make a plan. Make a plan for what you will do in an emergency. Plan in advance what you will do in an emergency. Be prepared to assess the situation. Use common sense and whatever you have on hand to take care of yourself and your loved ones. Develop a Family Communications Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so plan how you will contact one another and review what you will do in different situations. Consider a plan where each family member calls, or emails, the same friend or relative in the event of an emergency. It

several destinations in different directions so you have options in an emergency. If you have a car, keep at least a half tank of gas in it at all times. Become familiar with alternate routes as well as other means of transportation out of your area. If you do not have a car, plan how you will leave if you have to. Take your emergency supply kit, unless you have reason to believe it is contaminated and lock the door behind you. Take pets with you if you are told to evacuate, however, if you are going to a public shelter, keep in mind they may not be allowed inside.

supply kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency. However, there are significant differences among potential terrorist threats, such as biological, chemical, explosive, nuclear and radiological, which will impact the decisions you make and the actions you take. By beginning a process of learning about these specific threats, you are preparing yourself to react in an emergency. Go to www.ready.gov to learn more about potential terrorist threats and other emergencies or call 1 (800) BE-READY (1 (800) 237-3239) for a free

may be easier to make a longdistance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members. Be sure each person knows the phone number and has coins or a prepaid phone card to call the emergency contact. You may have trouble getting through, or the phone system may be down altogether, but be patient. Depending on your circumstances and the nature of the attack, the first important decision is whether you stay put or get away. You should understand and plan for both possibilities. Use common sense and the information you are learning here to determine if there is immediate danger. Watch television and listen to the radio for official instructions as they become available.

Create a Plan to Shelter-inPlace. There are circumstances when staying put and creating a barrier between yourself and potentially contaminated air outside, a process known as sheltering-in-place and sealing the room can be a matter of survival. If you see large amounts of debris in the air, or if local authorities say the air is badly contaminated, you may want to shelter-in-place and seal the room. Consider precutting plastic sheeting to seal windows, doors and air vents. Each piece should be several inches larger than the space you want to cover

so that you can duct tape it flat against the wall. Label each piece with the location of where it fits. Use all available information to assess the situation. If it is necessary, quickly bring your family and pets inside, lock doors and close windows, air vents and fireplace dampers. Immediately turn off air conditioning, forced air heating systems, exhaust fans and clothes dryers. Take your emergency supplies and go into the room you have designated. Seal all windows, doors and vents. Understand that sealing the room is a temporary measure to create a barrier between you and contaminated air. Watch TV, listen to the radio or check the Internet for instructions. Create a Plan to Get Away. Plan in advance how you will assemble your family and anticipate where you will go. Choose

If you believe the air may be contaminated, drive with your windows and vents closed and keep the air conditioning and heater turned off. Listen to the radio for instructions. Know Emergency Plans at School and Work. Think about the places where your family spends time: school, work and other places your family frequents. Talk to your children’s schools and your employer about emergency plans. Find out how they will communicate with families during an emergency. If you are an employer, be sure you have an emergency preparedness plan. Review and practice it with your employees. A community working together during an emergency also makes sense. Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as assembling a

brochure. Be prepared to adapt this information to your personal circumstances and make every effort to follow instructions received from authorities on the scene.

CPOs, selectees participate in battleship restoration project From Pre-Commissioning Unit America Public Affairs

MOBILE, Ala. (NNS) – 20 chief petty officers (CPO) and CPO selectees participated in a restoration project aboard the former USS Alabama (BB 60) battleship, berthed at Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile Aug. 23. During the CPO 365 Phase II community relations (COMREL) effort, the chiefs and selectees chipped and scraped rust and flaking paint from the walls and then applied rust-converting primer, so the spaces can be painted later. Owen Miller, purchasing agent and property manager for USS Alabama said they rely heavily on the volunteer efforts of the Navy and that this one project saved the battleship 80 man-hours and hundreds of dollars. “The maintenance crew for this ship is three guys. No how, no way could we gain on the maintenance issues without the help of the Navy. There’s just no way we could do it without you all,” said Miller. “We’re never going to run out of chipping and scraping and then priming the areas like you all did today. That’s just great,” said Miller. ABFCS Allan Thomas, CPO 365 Phase II co-chairman, said

this was the first time the chiefs and selectees have interacted on this level. “Over the last three weeks, we’ve spent a lot of time with the selectees, training and mentoring them. But we haven’t worked together like this, not necessarily as chief and selectee, but as one unit,” Thomas said. “Something that I think is very cool about being a chief is how we support each other. I think that for the selectees to see

the way that we pull together toward a common goal was an eye-opening lesson in group dynamics.” ATC (select) Alain Wescott said the selectees enjoyed being part of the unified group, and that it was different than participating in a command-level COMREL. “It felt special,” said Wescott. “We were all there chipping paint. We were all there building rapport and learning about

each other and just talking ... it was a special teamwork, definitely. It truly was one team, one fight, and we came out knowing a lot more about each other than we did before.” “What I found particularly interesting was that given the nature of this tasking it would have been really easy to lean on Senior Chief Miller, being the boatswain’s mate, being the expert, and for him to just have taken over, but he didn’t,” said PSC (select) Daniel Peters. “Chief James was still the lead on this, and everyone respected that. All these alpha-type leaders, very quickly and easily, without even blinking an eye, followed her lead. When they were by themselves and had their own project to take care of they did it, but it was still on her lead. That kind of jumped out at me and I found that interesting.” Wescott agreed. “We had a group of different ratings that don’t necessarily have anything to do with each other job-wise or rating-wise, but you come together as a leadership group and in that aspect it felt very different ... it was definitely a special feeling that we were sharing something really very unique,” he said. Peters said he already knew that every good leader needs to be able to be a good follower,

but while watching how the chiefs interacted with each other, he realized the selectees didn't know how to just fall in and truly support each other. “That transition should be seamless, and for me, I thought that was something that was very seamless, but it’s been a little bit of a struggle,” said Peters. “I don’t get the feeling that you (chiefs) as a group today were able to do this simply because you’ve been working together for a while, but that I could have a brand-new chief check in who doesn't know anyone and that’ll happen. It will just work out that way. That was really cool to watch ... I feel like that’s something that’s finally just starting to come together for us, now. I mean, you can read it in the BMR or something, but to actually witness it and see it work is pretty awesome,” said Peters. After the day’s assignments were complete, the chiefs and selectees were treated to lunch and then toured the ship, including stops at the chiefs mess and chiefs berthing.

Navy Housing gears up for annual survey of residents From Commander, Navy Installations Command Navy Housing Office

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – From Sigonella and Whidby Island to Wallop Island, and everywhere in between, Commander Navy Installations Command’s Navy Housing Office and its privatized housing partners are gearing up for the annual resident satisfaction survey (RSS). The annual survey, which is mailed to residents of military housing at the end of August, asks residents to provide feedback and thoughts regarding their Navy Housing experi-

ence. Military housing in the Pensacola area is managed by Balfour Beatty Communities. The RSS measures all aspects of customer satisfaction

with Navy Housing, including staff services, the condition of the homes and barracks, and other provided amenities such as loaner furnishings and the use of housing community centers. A comment card accompanies the surveys, and residents are encouraged to mention particular issues and request follow-up as a way to seek resolution of these issues. “Navy Housing is a customer-focused organization, and hearing from our customers is critical for us to understand and meet their needs,” said Cindy Mogan, Navy Housing RSS project manager.

“We encourage everyone that receives an RSS to take the time to complete and send it in. It’s an easy way to give us important and anonymous feedback on how we’re doing.” The RSS is also used to target funding for facility and amenity improvements. “Our residents play a vital role in improving the services and facilities we provide,” said William Pearson, acting Navy Housing program director. “RSS results assist housing professionals to prioritize projects that best meet service members’ needs.” Service members living in family housing were scheduled

to receive their surveys in late August or early September depending on location and it must be returned by Oct. 21. The family housing survey can be filled out and returned by mail or electronically on the survey website, and a link to the website is included in the survey. Service members living in unaccompanied housing will receive their survey by mail the second week of September and must be returned by Nov. 12. This survey is available by mail only. For more information about the RSS, visit www.cnic. navy.mil/HousingSurvey.

Island Fights is celebrating its three-year anniversary today, Sept. 6, by presenting an all-pro mixed martial arts (MMA) event at the Pensacola Bay Center. “We have put together our best fight card to date for this show,” said CEO of Island Fights Championships, Dean Toole. “It’s been a long time coming, and now we have decided to move forward into the professional MMA scene in a big way by partnering up long term with Roy Jones Jr.’s Square Ring Promotions.” The main event will be a match between heavyweights Bryan “The Lion” McVea of Oklahoma and Pensacola native Dillon “Bad Boy” Cleckler. McVea is a professional kickboxer as well as a professional MMA fighter. Cleckler, who went undefeated 10-0 as an amateur, made his MMA amateur debut three years ago and has a 3-0 record, finishing all three opponents in the first round by either KO or TKO. The undercard features several other matchups. Tickets are $34.50, $45, $55.50, $66 and $81.50 with a military discount of $10 off seats on levels 4 and 5 with ID. Note that other fees may apply. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the first fight is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. For more information, go to www.pensacolabaycenter.com.

MWR offers family fun ... The Family Summer Splash Party is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow, Sept. 7, at the Barrancas Ball Fields off Radford Boulevard aboard NAS Pensacola. The event is free to all MWR authorized patrons (active-duty, retirees and DoD civilians and their dependents). There will be a selection of wet and dry games.

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.
