Rear Adm. Mary M. Jackson, Commander, Navy Region Southeast, signed a suicide prevention awareness proclamation onboard NAS Jacksonville Sept. 2. The proclamation recognizes September as national suicide prevention awareness month and is intended to raise suicide awareness prevention throughout the Southeast Region. According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, in the United States, one person dies by suicide every 13.3 minutes. Annually, more than 30,000 lives are lost in the United States, making death by suicide one of

Suicide prevention efforts are getting extra attention this month at Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). Several initiatives have been launched in association with the Navy’s observance of September as suicide awareness and prevention month. Military and civilian coordinators gathered Sept. 4 at command headquarters to witness NASP CO Capt. Keith Hoskins sign a proclamation. Hoskins pointed out that this month’s events are part of a team effort to support Sailors and help them navigate the challenges that they face every day. “This gives us time to pause and think about how we build resiliency in our

NETC commander advises Pensacola-area chief selects Story, photo by Ed Barker NETC PAO

Rear Adm. Mike White, commander of Naval Education and Training Command met with chief petty officer selectees from the Pensacola-area military complex Sept. 2 to discuss their new roles as leaders and mentors to the fleet. The admiral was invited to address the group by Naval Air Station Pensacola’s Command Master Chief Jeffery Grosso as part of the CPO-365 transition process for the chief selectees. CPO-365 is a three-phase year-round training cycle aimed at preparing board-eligible first class petty officers to become future chief petty officers.

Grosso. “The chief selects not only need to know how important it is to take care of junior Sailors, but also how it is

equally important to develop junior officers. To get the perspective of the admiral and how senior enlisted members had lasting impacts on him throughout his career really sends the message home to our up-and-coming chief petty officers.” White shared his experience as a junior officer, just out of flight school in an A-7 squadron, where his command master chief advised him on being a better division officer and taking care of his Sailors. He stressed that one critical role of a chief is to help junior officers develop as leaders. “The responsibilities of a chief petty officer are huge,” said White. “Even the Harvard Business School acknowledged

the most disruptive and tragic events a family and a community can experience. It is estimated that for every suicide, there are from eight to 25 attempted suicides. “The Navy’s choice of ‘Every Sailor, Every Day’ as the theme for Suicide Prevention Month emphasizes that the loss of one Sailor to suicide is one loss too many,” Jackson said. “The Navy has a great tradition of looking out for shipmates, but we can always do more. We should always be looking for ways to help Sailors help themselves and come to their aide any time when they show signs of distress, not just during Suicide Prevention Month.” The Navy’s 21st Century Sailor and Marine Program initiative encourages Sailors, commands, families and civilian employees to empower themselves by taking personal responsibility for their health, wellness and growth — the important step in building resilience.

To heel, or not to heel, that is the sandwich question By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

W

hile the polite, but pierced teen prepared my favorite Subway sandwich – tuna on wheat – I chatted with my husband, who was up next. “So, hon, did you like that new club deli meat I put in your lunch today?” “That sandwich had meat in it?” he asked sarcastically. “What are you talking about? I made you a nice big sandwich with that new club deli meat I got at the commissary. You know, the one made of both ham and turkey with bacon wrapped around it. Geeze, I thought you’d like it,” I declared incredulously. “Well, Hon, it was kind of hard to taste anything inside the sandwich because the strong flavor of the two heels of bread you gave me overpowered everything else.” I grumbled, but he was right. After making the children’s sandwiches that morning, I noticed that two heels of bread were left. I could’ve opened a new loaf and thrown the heels away, but my mother had instilled a certain frugality in me. I thought my husband would

appreciate the fact that I was not wasting two perfectly edible bread heels that his hardearned military salary had purchased. Besides, I thought, he must be grateful that I’m the kind of wife that gets up every morning and packs him a nice lunch, right? As I selected toppings for my sandwich that were salty, sour, crunchy and spicy, all I could taste was bitterness. “That’s it,” I ruminated. “He can make his own stinking sandwiches from now on.” As my sub was being saltand-peppered, I remembered a conversation I’d had with a salt-and-pepper-haired lady in the YMCA locker room two tours ago in Virginia. We had just finished our morning exercise classes – I, advanced step; she, senior water aerobics – and the women’s locker room was steamy and abuzz with conversation. I regularly got a chuckle out

All the old women would cackle away about their ailments, medications, aches

and pains. I always noticed that the salt-and-pepper-haired lady would listen and show concern for her friends’ self-absorbed grievances, but never complained herself. I thought she was a real class act, and made a mental note to myself to try to become that kind of old lady, rather than the kind that went on and on about things like glucosamine and condroitin. On this particular day, she and I found ourselves simultaneously brushing our hair at the shared vanity. “Are there any decent car washes around here?” I asked, after some cursory remarks about the weather. “Well,” she started, with that Old World throw-back Southern accent common in Richmond and Norfolk, “I must admit I’m not very familiar with automotive services around here.” “You see,” she went on, “my husband died last fall, and don’t you know, during our entire 45 years together, I never once put gas in my own car.” It took me a minute to process the significance of what this tasteful elderly lady had just said. “Wait, you mean he always put gas in the car for you?” “Why yes, he certainly did,” she said, somewhat melan-

choly. Of course, my immediate reaction was to get mad at my own husband, who never put gas in my minivan. Just as I was mentally making plans for a real doozy of a husband-wife argument, the salt-and-pepperhaired lady continued: “I never asked him; he wanted to do that for me, so he did. And there were things I always did for him – cooking his meals, gardening, and such. I must say, we loved taking care of each other.” I stood, mouth half agape, staring at the lady in the shared mirror. Like a scene from “Cocoon,” it was as if she had just bestowed upon me the secret to a happy marriage. “Will that be all?” the Subway employee said, jolting me back to the present. I realized that making my husband’s sandwich every day didn’t render me subservient to him. It was something I did to take care of him because he takes care of me. With a fresh outlook on my marriage and a fresh tuna sub in my hand, I decided that there was no reason for me to dig my heels in. I’d continue making my husband sandwiches for the rest of our lives, and hopefully he’ll endure a heel or two along the way.

We’re in this together: One suicide is one too many By MC3 Johans Chavarro Navy Public Affairs Support Element West, Detachment Hawaii

T

he Navy is promoting the message “Every Sailor, Every Day,” to encourage all Sailors, leaders, families and members of the Navy community to strengthen their connections with those around them in accordance with September, Navy Suicide Prevention Month. Unfortunately, suicide is currently one of the top causes of death in the Navy, claiming the lives of approximately 44 Sailors in 2013 alone and, according to Navy Personnel Command, 39 lives so far in 2014. While these statistics suggest a decrease in frequency of total suicide fatalities from previous years, the numbers show that some Sailors are still finding themselves with nowhere to go and no other option. In an organization that requires the cooperation and unity of every Sailor to accomplish its mission, one suicide is one too many. So, how do we keep moving forward? According to Lt. David Broderick, a psychologist at Makalapa Mental Health Clinic Pearl Harbor, in addition to the web of resources that target raising awareness, reduction and response to suicide, it is also increasingly important to “get ahead of the problem” and address the social challenges and stigmas that may lay at the crux of the issue. “Efforts need to continue to be made towards de-stigmatizing and being more empathic about suicide so that the person asking for help doesn’t feel overwhelmed with asking for it,” said Broderick. “If people are hesitant to go and talk to their chain of command about feeling depressed or hopeless, because they worry their career might get affected, or because maybe they’re not yet at that point of really wanting to hurt themselves, then things can certainly end up escalating the longer they wait.” Lt. James Ragain, a chaplain attached to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, echoed Broderick’s sentiments, saying there are a lot of social challenges and stigmas that come with suicide. “For the person that may be having thoughts about suicide, there’s certainly the stigma of, ‘am I going to be seen as different?’ Or, ‘are people going to

treat me as weak?,’ ” said Ragain. “And on the other end there’s the taboo of asking difficult questions about people’s lives and asking the question we’re trained to ask, ‘are you thinking about suicide?’ We may think that by asking this question this person may reject us and cost us a friendship.” As Ragain described, the programs that are available work effectively to equip individuals with the know-how and insight to identify external indications and red flags, as well as providing help to those who need it, but, “oftentimes the tools can be like giving cough syrup to someone who needs an antibody. We need to get below the surface.” “If they can’t open up to anyone, or if they don’t feel safe opening up to anyone, and no one is there to ask that clear and direct question, ‘are you thinking about suicide?,’ then the situation can certainly snowball out of their control,” said Ragain. Lt. Cmdr. Kaarin Coe, a social worker and the Suicide Prevention Coordinator at Military and Family Support Center Pearl Harbor, said that while the task of asking a shipmate or co-worker if they are having thoughts of suicide or are in need of professional help may seem daunting, it is important to keep in mind the Navy’s core values to intervene when something is out of place in the work place, as well as with those around us. “The Navy’s greatest asset is their people,” said Coe. “Nothing moves, flies, or sails without someone at the helm – whatever form that may take. When we take care of each other, we ensure our Navy stays not only ‘Fit to Fight,’ but focused on the mission. When we get people support sooner rather than later, they are able to either maintain their ability to be mission focused, or return to duty faster than if they wait until there is a crisis.” Ragain said to continue moving forward it is crucial that Sailors and individuals find the

honor, courage and commitment to initiate early avenues of communication with those that may be showing signs of suicide. “When someone starts that internal dialogue about suicide and they have someone they can talk with about what’s going on in their life, it lets them get everything out onto the table, and for a lot of people it’s like a huge weight’s been taken off their shoulders,” said Ragain. “For others, as they listen to themselves talk about suicide and about their issues, it’s almost like they convince themselves not to do it because they now have that connection with someone and they know they’re no longer alone.” Because of this, it is imperative that Sailors and individuals remain perceptive to changes in behavior and attitude of someone who they may suspect is struggling emotionally, said Ragain. “One thing that happens when people are thinking about suicide is they give out invitations to people, to connect with them and talk about their feelings,” said Ragain. “I use ‘invitations’ as opposed to ‘warning signs,’ because what they’re doing is inviting other people to talk about this major decision they’re going to make in their life. These invitations may come in the form of the things they say like, ‘there’s no hope for me, things will be better once I’m gone.’ Or as blatant as, ‘I’m going to kill myself.’ Invitations also come in the form of their appearance, or how they

isolate themselves from other people.” Coe said that anyone can become susceptible to suicidal thoughts, thus it becomes important that everyone recognize their role as a resource by remaining vigilant to the signs that may be out of the ordinary with their coworker or shipmate. “Being aware of changes in mood, demeanor and behaviors are key in recognizing early that something may be going on,” said Coe. “Knowing the resources available can also help get someone to the support they need sooner.” Once contact and communication is established, Sailors and individuals can then move on to subsequent resources that will work more directly to provide the support and help necessary. At this stage in the Navy, Broderick suggested that commands continue to stress that Sailors seek help and resources. “Commands need to continue stressing that and eventually people may find themselves more willing, or not as nervous, to seek help and go talk to someone,” said Broderick. “The clinic is a place for everyone to come for outpatient treatment for whatever life stresses they may have going on,” said Broderick. “Our mission is to get people back to work and to feel stronger about going back to work.” But to accomplish this mis-

sion first requires one to make that uncomfortable effort and ask that difficult question, “are you thinking about suicide?” It is only through increased empathetic and open communication that this can be achieved, said Coe. From Sept. 1-30, “I Pledge to ACT,” a web-based effort, is taking place to encourage all Sailors, families and members of the Navy community to take steps in building personal resilience, supporting their shipmates and intervening if they notice signs of distress. The pledge is completely anonymous and available to all audiences through the NPC website, www.public.navy.mil.

Rating experts sought for advancement exam panels By Katrina Gergely NETPDTC Public Affairs

N

aval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center (NETPDTC) announced the schedule for the latest Advancement Exam Readiness Review (AERR) Sept. 2 which seeks volunteers to serve as subject matter experts (SMEs) for exam development. Naval Administrative Message (NavAdmin) 204/14 details the AERR schedule from October through March. Navy chiefs (E-7 to E-9) on active duty, Full Time Support (FTS), and reservists on Active Duty for Special Work (ADSW) are encouraged to apply. The AERRs are held at Saufley Field in Pensacola. Fleet subject matter expert (FSME)

travel and all associated costs are funded by NETPDTC. The reviews typically run one or two weeks in length, and updates to the AERR schedule are published quarterly. “AERR panels bring chief petty officers together to serve as rating subject matter experts,” said Navy Advancement Center’s (NAC) Director Cmdr. Brenda Stencil. “The panel work

requires long days and meticulous effort, but all of the feedback I’ve received shows how personally rewarding and career enhancing these events are for attendees.” According to Stencil, the chiefs who volunteer and are selected for panel membership work closely with the NAC staff of exam development professionals and play a vital role as a rating FSME. They are responsible for determining and developing the content of E-4 through E-7 rating advancement exams, significantly affecting the careers of all advancement-eligible sailors. There are seven eligibility requirements listed in the volunteer nomination package and chiefs with recent experience in a major rating skill set or in multiple platforms are highly sought

after. The NAC AERR fleet liaison, Peter Pappas, coordinates with learning center rating managers, detailers and type commander representatives to select the best nominees who have the right mix of skills and knowledge, and also complement other panel members, to support the AERR process. “Each enlisted rating has its own unique skill sets that must be represented during the AERR process,” said Pappas. “This cannot be accomplished without the chiefs in the fleet volunteering to attend. It is crucial that every chief should view the AERRs as a way to give back to their community. It’s Sailorization at its finest.” The application to volunteer as an FSME for advancement exam development must be en-

Navy Ener gy connects on milSuite From Navy Energy Coordination Office

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Collaborative tools and social networking platforms are becoming increasingly valuable for companies and government entities to ensure that innovative solutions and ideas generated by their workforce are heard by leadership and can foster change that makes them more effective. In 2009, the military took on this challenge through the creation of milSuite, a collection of online tools and applications aimed at connecting people and knowledge by increasing awareness of military programs, products, teams and policies.

To improve collaboration on energy topics across the fleets and system commands, the Chief of Naval Operations Energy and Environmental Readiness Division (OpNav N45) has created a collection of milSuite groups that facilitate energy discussions as part of this emerging social business initiative. MilSuite is a Common Access Card (CAC) enabled tool that allows DoD personnel to create virtual communities, share ideas and participate in a collaborative work environment. DoD uses milSuite to improve secure methods of collaboration using four types of applications: milBook, milWiki, milWire and milTube. Each application serves a

unique purpose to securely connect users to share information. The OpNav N45 groups include a Navy Energy dashboard to which members can post energy-related articles, submit blog posts, or engage in discussions. A second group consists of a reference library that serves as a repository for Navy energy-related resources. The third group is the Navy Energy Innovation group, which serves as an open forum for members to share ideas on energy-related technology, research, and approaches for improving tactics, techniques and procedures that can increase energy efficiency. Similar to Facebook, members can “like” initiatives or posts,

vote on ideas, or add comments to further the discussion. All links below are accessible by registering for a milSuite account and are CAC enabled.

NASWF Feds Feed Families finishes strong By Ens. Kimberly Mahoney NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

The Naval Air Station Whiting Field chaplain’s office wrapped up participation in the Feds Feeds Family Program Aug 31. after a summerlong campaign to collect food for families in need. The program gives the Navy a chance to make a large impact with a small act of kindness. Feds Feeds Families is an annual campaign led by the United States Department of Agriculture and supported by other federal agencies. Since this program began in 2009, federal workers have collectively donated and

collected more than 24.1 million pounds of food and other nonperishable items to support families across America. The chaplain’s office coordinates the program at NAS Whiting Field, and it is one of the few times government members are able to donate, within the workplace, to good causes. “Taking the time to stop and buy a little bit of food and donate it feeds many families ... it’s great that the (federal employees are) helping out,” said RP2 Lusbeth Morales. Morales spearheaded the program this year, organizing participation from every department

on base. A point of contact was established to work with their unit and provide volunteers for each pickup. “It’s not about what others can do for you but what you can do for others,” said AB1 Christopher Jacobs, who helped with one of the pickups. Morales also worked with Kim Jackson, the commissary director, to coordinate an easy way for the Whiting Field com-

munity to contribute. Bags of food were put together for commissary patrons to buy and then place in a box at the commissary exit. Those bags were then picked up on a biweekly basis and taken to the Bay Area Food Bank. The volunteers were able to make seven pickups from the commissary for a total of 2,350 pounds of food donated from NAS Whiting Field. Volunteers from different departments on base transported the food, putting a face to military members who have generously donated to the program. “It does build a community feel, I think that it helps people

realize that we understand that even though we might be here a short amount of time we are still members of the community,” said Lt. Jason Hart, Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s chaplain. The food drive is one of three that NAS Whiting Field participates in annually. Although this year’s drive is over, anyone interested in volunteering is welcome to visit the Bay Area Food Bank. The chaplain’s office expressed their gratitude for everyone who lent a hand and donated. “(We) really appreciate everyone who donated, it’s a representation of all of us,” Hart said.

Whiting holds 25th annual job fair Story, photo by Ens. Kimberly Mahoney NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) opened its gates to community and military members alike for the silver anniversary of its annual job fair Aug. 21. Tables were filled with eye-catching displays and promotional items, all attempting to draw the attention of applicants and give companies a chance to explain what they had to offer. At 9 a.m. the doors of Sikes Hall opened to a line of eager applicants. Job seekers found a wealth of information and job listings, but most importantly they found opportunity. “(This will) help folks, whether they’re in transition or trying to get a job. You change lives today,” said NASWF Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin during his welcoming speech to participating companies and their representatives. Vendors were happy with the turnout, stating that there was a larger pool of applicants with different skills that they had not seen in the past fairs. The total number of job seekers reached 906, with 4,900 information sessions conducted. Out of a total of 784 interviews conducted, 100 people were hired on the spot. Companies chose to participate in the fair for numerous reasons, but a resounding consensus agreed that the quality of the applicants is what keeps bringing them back. The military’s ability to instill discipline and a strong work ethic in its members makes them highly desirable in the civilian workforce.

Applicants line up at a booth to learn more about potential employers.

“Folks here are prepared. Obviously those in the military have skills, have discipline. It also seems that their dependents have many of those traits ... The caliber of the candidates keeps us coming back,” said Greg Young, recruiter for Gulf Power. The military’s emphasis on safety in the workplace was also mentioned by numerous companies. From law enforcement to civilian maintenance jobs, safety is a growing concern in many industries today. “The base is a safety center for aviation so everyone from this base has some kind of safety background, which is really good for the railroad because we’re safety conscious,” said Steve Toomey, a recruiter for CSX Transport. Participants were surprised by the variety of possible jobs available in the region. Many attended with a specific job in mind but left with the intention of applying for a career they did not know was available. “There’s a lot of interesting companies I didn’t know about ... I’m going to go

home and apply,” said Shante Smith, a civilian whose family has served extensively in the Navy. Some applicants came specifically to network with companies that had more to offer than their current employer. Damon Matthews mentioned that he was searching for a company that had potential for growth because companies downsizing had been a problem in the past. He had no trouble finding future opportunities. “Everyone I talked to said ‘apply,’ ” Matthews said, as he sat at a table with a folder full of applications. Jeff Keisacker, a retired combat medic who had served two tours in Afghanistan, came to the fair looking for a career transition. He mentioned the largest draw to the fair was the ability to speak face-toface with the companies and see how they interact with their applicants. As a veteran with charisma and confidence, the job fair gave him an excellent opportunity to display qualities that would not show on an

online application. Those qualities can set applicants apart from others with similar skills. “The networking part, the actual meeting the folks who represent the different companies and getting information from someone word of mouth. You’re actually putting a face to the company, the company is putting a face to the people looking for a job,” said Jeff Gulsby, an attendee who was considering a career change. Companies were thrilled with the pool of potential employees. Some offered jobs on the spot or sent applicants home happy, knowing their resume was well received. Companies that required an extensive application process were able to better explain the necessary steps to get hired. Christine Cowles was one of the numerous success stories from the fair. She originally heard about the fair from her neighbor and came not knowing what to expect. She left with a smile and more than one job opportunity. “I had a couple of companies accept my resume and told me to expect a call back,” Cowles said excitedly. The amount of job opportunities and the large turnout was said to be a reflection of the local job market. “The labor market is improving slowly and as it improves the hunt for qualified applicants increases, so competition increases,” said Darryl Johnson, work and family life consultant at NASWF Fleet and Family Support Center. Many participating companies and applicants credited the success of the fair to Johnson and his team; all 77 employers are willing to return next year.

PRACTICE AREAS Divorce Alimony

Child Support Military Divorce Criminal Defense DUI

Military Divorce Active Duty or Retired

We are located near Corry Station and NAS Pensacola. As a result, for 30 years we have handled problems that are unique to active duty and retired military service members. We are able to handle most issues where Florida has jurisdiction, which may include Initial Divorce proceedings, Spousal Support, Child Support, Modification, Visitation or Custody issues Contempt, Email or Teleconferencing. In cases of deployment, regarding court appearances, many occasions relevant to these issues (pursuant to the other sides agreement when necessary), you can testify by telephone and never have to physically be in Florida for the proceeding. Set forth below are a few of the issues that you may question regarding, whether you are active

duty, retired or the spouse of active duty or retire military. Child Support In calculating Child Support, in addition to your regular or retirement pay, the following pay is included: 1. Housing Allowance 2. Sea or Flight Pay 3. Retirement Pay 4. Social Security 5. V.A. Benefits (Yes, despite what others have told you, VA pay is included in child support calculations. Some of you will argue this point. Make an appointment and I will show you why it is included). You will still be governed by the child support requirements under the general Divorce/Child Support for the state of Florida. FYI: Based on the child support formula, it is almost always cheaper, if possible, to use day care.

A major problem which can affect both the payor and recipient of child support is when the support should begin. If you are involved in the initial Divorce proceeding the payor’s obligation begins, at the minimum, when the divorce is filed and/or you no longer live together with the child/children. The separation date may predate the filing of the divorce petition. You need an attorney’s advice to ascertain your obligation. If you wait until the final hearing, you may have to pay ongoing child support plus a court ordered amount each month to satisfy an arrearage plus interest. If you are active duty military, the JAG manual (navy page) will specify what you must pay to continue to support your family until further court order. A temporary hearing could reduce the amount of child support that you have been direct to may pay military orders or rules. If you are the spouse of an active duty military member, reservist or retiree, see Spouse/Military or

call for an appointment regarding the questions you may have. Retirement Alimony/Spousal Support In Florida, military retirement funds are an asset which is treated differently than other income related to Alimony/Spousal Support. The spouse of retired military personnel receives a pro rata share of the retirement funds. If the spouse remarries, the awarded share is still paid. If the military retiree dies, and an SBP is elected, it is still paid. You must make sure your lawyer uses the correct formula in order to establish the amount owed. DFAS has particular guidelines that must be met in order to accomplish the correct payment of spousal support.

th Anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner By Donna Miles, American Forces Press Service

O

n the night of Sept. 13, 1814, British ships in Baltimore harbor bombarded the outgunned U.S. resistance at Fort McHenry for 25 solid hours. Francis Scott Key, a civilian lawyer who was sent to Baltimore to negotiate an American hostage’s release, found himself in a front-row seat to the battle aboard a British ship. As dawn broke the following morning, Key stood on the ship’s deck, amazed to see the U.S. flag still flapping in the breezes over the battered fort. He was so moved that he penned the poem that became the lyrics of the national anthem. Beyond the Battle of Fort McHenry, many Americans have little understanding of what’s been called America’s first forgotten war. The War of 1812 centered on maritime disputes between the United States and Great Britain. In the early 1800s, the

Royal Navy, which was at war with France, was stopping American ships to search for sailors born in England, then forcibly pressing them into service “A view of the bombardment of Fort McHenry” is a print by J.

NETC names top performers By Ed Barker NETC PAO

T

he Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) recognized its top performers Aug. 26 by announcing the Junior and Senior Civilians of the Quarter (CoQ) for the second quarter of 2014. Rear Adm. Mike White, NETC commander, praised the awardees as shining examples of the dedication displayed at headquarters and noted their efforts are an indispensable part of the education and training mission. “The NETC team members we honor as civilians of the quarter are representative of the tremendously-dedicated professionals we have throughout the Navy training enterprise,” said White. “Our civilians are an indispensable part of our warfighting capability and one of the main reasons we can quickly respond to fleet needs, enabling and ensuring fleet readiness. The

work performed by these professionals each and every day throughout our world-wide training commands is key to the success of our Navy and Marine Corps team.” Alex McCrory, a planning program manager in the NETC supply logistics department, was named the Senior Civilian of the Quarter. McCrory coordinates facility-related issues in support of the training mission. “To be selected is a real honor knowing the professional level of work and accomplishments conducted by others within the NETC command,” said McCrory. “At the same time, I’m humbled be-

cause of the mutual support and teamwork involved in enabling myself and others to do what we do.” Cmdr. Glen Dietrick, N41 staff logistics officer, noted that McCrory’s nomination for SCoQ was well-deserved. “Mr. McCrory is a high-octane performer, having successfully managed several infrastructure actions with excellent results, including large facility investments for the Navy’s submarine, nuclear and officer development programs,” said Dietrick. The Junior Civilian of the Quarter, Keith Palmer, works as the program assistant property manager, code N4113. He provides advice to property managers, database users and organizational personnel on inventory and Personal Property Management (PPM) policy and procedures. “It was a complete surprise to receive the award,” said Palmer. “I greatly appreciate the recognition – this is the highlight of my year.” Palmer’s supervisor, Jim Kight, the NETC supply policy program manager, said that his outstanding perform-

ance, ability to assess personnel property management shortfalls and recommend and incorporate corrective action were the reasons for Palmer’s nomination as JCoQ.

“Keith has done an outstanding job, working independently and managing more than 60 activities and 150 personal property accounts,” said Kight. “He came to the NETC enterprise and got up-to-speed on property management in record time.” NETC is the largest shore command in the Navy and is comprised of more than 12,000 military and staff personnel at more than 230 subordinate activities and detachments in the United States and at remote sites overseas.

Dr. John was awarded an honorary doctorate from Tulane University in New Orleans in 2013.

Story, photo from Pensacola Saenger Theatre

The legendary Dr. John, a six-time Grammy Award-winning musician and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, will bring a bit of New Orleans to Pensacola when he takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 18 at the Saenger Theatre. Known throughout the world as the embodiment of the New Orleans musical legacy, Dr. John’s colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford. Dr. John headed west, where he continued to be in demand

Details • What: Dr. John and the Nite Trippers. • Where: Pensacola Saenger Theatre, 118 South Palafox St. • When: 7:30 p.m. Sept. 18. • Cost: Reserved seating, $79, $55, $49, plus service charge. • For information: www. pensacolasaenger.com.

as a session musician, playing on records by Sonny and Cher, Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin and The Rolling Stones. During that time he launched his solo career, developing the charismatic persona of Dr. John The Nite Tripper. A legend was born with his breakthrough 1968 album “Gris-Gris” which

introduced the world to his unique blend of funk, rhythm and blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots. Some of chart hits include “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Such A Night.” In addition to his six wins, he has received six other Grammy nominations over the years. In 2007, he was nominated for “Sippiana Hericane,” his Hurricane Katrina benefit disc. After Hurricane Katrina, Dr. John stepped up to the plate with relief fund-raising concerts and recordings. He recently released a Louis Armstrong tribute album, “SkeDat-De-Dat … The Spirit of Satch,” debuted Aug. 27 at No. 1 on the contemporary jazz chart.
