Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month observed at NAS Pensacola By Carolyn Gray NAS Pensacola Public Affairs Office

September is National Suicide Prevention and Awareness month. To raise awareness, promote prevention and save lives, the Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola provided a “1 Small Act” training event at the Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC) auditorium Sept. 5. Speakers from Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), EscaRosa Suicide Prevention Coalition and Religious Ministries spoke to more than 400 students and service members. Military life can be stressful for service members and their families. Everyone reacts to stress and traumatic experiences differently and some may feel angry or isolated. People coping with these concerns may feel like there is no escape from their stressors leading them to having thoughts of suicide.

Legalman Senior Chief Petty Officer Erica Queely has been the suicide prevention coordinator for NAS Pensacola for 12 months. During her 19year naval career, she has seen her share of suicide situations. “Every small act shows that we care,” Queely said. “We care by showing concern, by getting involved and by supporting our fellow Sailors.” In a report released by the Defense Suicide Prevention office, 325 service members were killed by suicide in 2018: 58 Marines, 68 Sailors, 60 Airmen and 139 Soldiers. The report indicates an increase of 40 deaths from the previous year. “Over the past 10 years, I’ve noticed an overall increase in suicides within the Navy,” Capt. Timothy Kinsella Jr., commanding officer, NAS Pensacola said. “Suicide in the Navy has reached epidemic proportions and it has become critical that we educate our Sailors of the importance of caring for each other and asking

for help when needed.” According to the National Action for Suicide Prevention and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, for every

person who dies by suicide annually, there are another 280 people who have thought seriously about suicide and nearly 60 who have survived a

suicide attempt. “There are some common factors as well as issues within See Suicide on page 2

Defense Health Agency assumes administration of remaining Eastern MTFs From Defense Health Agency (DHA)

The Defense Health Agency (DHA) has officially assumed administration and management responsibilities for all military treatment facilities (MTF) from central Texas to Maine as a part of Military Health System reform mandated by Congress in the National Defense Authorization Acts of Fiscal Years 2017 and 2019. The ultimate goal of this transition for the Department of Defense is a more integrated, efficient, and effective system of readiness and health. The recent announcement impacts more than 200 military hospitals and clinics east of the Mississippi River, plus those in Arkansas,

Louisiana, Oklahoma and most of Texas. “From a patient perspective, most of these changes should go unnoticed,” Navy Vice-Adm. Raquel C. “Rocky” Bono, DHA director said. “Patients expect and will receive the same high quality, trusted care they have come to know at our military treatment facilities. Providers can expect to focus on practicing medicine and maintaining their preparedness in the event of crisis.” The transition to DHA of more than 50 hospitals and 377 clinics currently administered by the armed services will be accomplished in phases by Sept. 30, 2021. DHA will be responsible for all facilities with respect to budgetary matters; information technology; health care administration

and management; administrative policy and procedure; and military medical construction. Previously, the DHA assumed management and administration of hospitals and clinics at Fort Bragg, North Carolina; Pope Field, North Carolina; Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida; Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi; Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina; and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North Carolina. These are in addition to DHA’s authority, direction, and control over Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Maryland, and Ft. Belvoir Community Hospital, Virginia, and their associated clinics. DHA will assume oversight of military treatment facilities in the western U.S. on Oct. 1, 2020 and all overseas facilities by Sept. 30, 2021.

communicating with someone who may be suicidal are supported by evidence in the field of suicide prevention. ASK: Asking the question “Are you thinking about suicide?” communicates that you’re open to speaking about suicide in a nonjudgmental and supportive way. Never promise to keep someone’s suicidal thoughts a secret. KEEP THEM SAFE: After the “Ask” step, and you’ve determined suicide is indeed being talked about, it’s important to find out a few things to establish immediate safety. Have they already done anything to try to kill themselves before talking with you? Does the person experiencing thoughts of suicide know how they would kill themselves? Knowing the answers to each of these questions can tell us a lot about the imminence and severity of danger the person is in. BE THERE: This could mean being physically present for someone, speaking with them on the phone when you can or any other way that shows support for the person at risk. An important aspect of this step is to make sure you follow through with the ways in which you say you’ll be able to support the person – do not commit

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer – Capt. Timothy Kinsella Jr. Public Affairs Officer – Jason J. Bortz 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 biplane 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 one of the

Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 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.

HELP THEM CONNECT: Helping someone with thoughts of suicide connect with ongoing support (like the Lifeline, 800273-8255) can help them establish a safety net for those moments they find themselves in a crisis. FOLLOW UP: After your initial contact with a person experiencing thoughts of suicide, and after you’ve connected them with the immediate support systems they need, make sure to follow-up with them to see how they’re doing. Leave a message, send a text, or give them a call. On Sept 17 at 2 p.m., Lady of Loreto Chapel will host a candlelight vigil. This vigil is a powerful way for people to come together as a community and honor those who have struggled or continue to struggle with suicide. There will be beneficial information on suicide prevention and time for people to reflect on their experiences.

College survival requires only the ‘essentials’ By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

M

om! Where did you put the cups for my smoothie maker?!” my daughter, Anna, yelled from our basement last week while packing for her last year of college. An artsy fashion design major who considers orderliness boring, Anna was infamous in our family for losing things and accusing others of taking them. To help Anna avoid the college moving day fiascos of years past, I had advised her to place her belongings in our dining room where they could be sorted, then taken out to the car. The plastic tubs she’d lugged up from our basement contained the jumble of things Anna felt were “key and essential” for the apartment she would share with three of her fashion design major girlfriends. Many items thrown haphazardly into the tubs were a good sign. The laptop, printer, and tangle of charging cords conjured visions of late nights studying

to get good grades. The desk caddy packed to the gills with pencils, charcoals, scissors, brushes and tempura paint cakes would surely spur creativity. The mismatched plates, cups, bowls, cutlery, pots and pans were a comforting indication that Anna might not go broke buying take out. Though I suspected that the toilet bowl brush might never see any action, I was pleased that, at the very least, Anna wanted the impression of cleanliness. The Keurig, while a bit extravagant for a college student, would enable Anna to rise early and get the worm. However, other items gave

I had suspected that the smoothie maker was merely a parent-appropriate way to describe a margarita blender. But the humungous four-gallon jar with a spigot affixed to the bottom was surely not for lemonade. Anna might be 21, but my eye still twitched when I saw the bottle of rum she packed between her bed linens. Two large stuffed suitcases,

three garbage bags bursting with hanging clothes, and two sets of plastic drawers filled with accessories seemed excessive even for a fashion design major, and had me wondering why she needed anything other than comfy sweats for studying in the library. The bins filled to the top with make up, nail polish, hair accessories and flat irons were enough to set up a small beauty salon. The strings of lights, electronic neon lips, and tub full of costumes such as wigs, hats, flower leis, leather pants, feather boas, hip-high cowboy boots, and a metallic spandex catsuit made me wonder if Anna was going into the nightclub business. Somehow we forced it all into the car, and drove the six hours to her new apartment at Syracuse University. I helped Anna hump the boxes, bins and suitcases up to the seventh floor apartment where she would spend her senior year, but after two trips up together, Anna took pity on her middleaged mom and ordered me to unpack while she brought the rest up alone. I stationed myself in her bedroom, where I set about hanging up the clothing and accessories from the suitcases and garbage bags. The shoes

Anna chose to bring were definitely not conducive to walking to class — lime green alligator pumps, orange booties with lucite heels, silver metallic combat boots, and snakeskin high heels with straps that wrapped up to the knee. And other than a few sorority sweatshirts, the garments included an inordinate number of clubbing outfits – holographic pants, a pleather crop top, a faux snakeskin vest, an animal print miniskirt and many dresses fashioned out of less than a yard of fabric. After unpacking Anna’s belongings, we made the obligatory annual trip to the nearest Target for “just a few things” to fill the gaps. Conveniently, Anna had made a list of the most “necessary” supplies: Sweet potato gnocchi, cashew pesto, goat cheese crumbles, arugula, Greek yogurt, quinoa, garbanzo beans, Kind bars, gluten free bread, almond milk, a 48 pack of coffee pods, and a twelvepack of spiked seltzer. Target didn’t have the goat cheese crumbles on Anna’s list, but as I made the six-hour drive back home, I suspected that my daughter’s resourcefulness would ensure that she would survive her senior year of college just fine.

Updated Final Multiple Score (FMS) calculator app released From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

T

he Final Multiple Score (FMS) calculator app is ready for download after undergoing a redesign that complements the MyNavy Portal FMS Calculator. The app, which calculates projected FMS for E-3 through E-6 Sailors who are eligible for advancement to paygrades E-4 through E-7, hit the app stores Sept. 5. “It’s a simple, single-screen display that enables users to populate FMS elements with data representing individual accomplishments and other required data that helps Sailors determine their advancement potential,” Master Chief Electronics Technician (Nuclear) Greg Prichard, command master chief, Navy Advancement Center said. The app features dropdown menus that allow users to change inputs to explore “what if” scenarios. For example, if Sailors believe they may complete an associate or bachelor’s degree prior to the next advancement cycle, they can enter the data to determine if the addition of the degree will place their score above the minimum cut score from the previous exam cycle.

This release includes the latest FMS minimum cut scores for the spring 2019 advancement cycles. The release also includes changes in the FMS formulas and implementation of NAVADMIN 312/18, as well as the Reporting Senior’s Cumulative Average (RSCA) Performance Mark Average (PMA) policy. The RSCA PMA calculation will be included in the automated Enlisted Advancement Worksheet (EAW) application starting with the Fall 2019 cycles (Cycles 105 and 244). Active and Reserve candidates competing for advancement to chief petty officer will not use RSCA PMA until the 2020 advancement cycles. Two other changes of note include Individual Augmentee (IA) points and

Pass Not Advanced (PNA) points. Based on current operational requirements, the awarding of IA points for E-4 through E-6 candidates will no longer be factored into the FMS. To reward superior rating knowledge, PNA points for E-4 through E-6 candidates will continue to be added when the FMS is computed. However, in an effort to allow first time test takers an opportunity to compete on a more equal level, PNA points will continue to be awarded

for the top 25 percent of eligible candidates, but PNA points will only accumulate for the three previous advancement cycles. Current PNA points from previous cycles will be retained. “The goal is provide greater weight to performance measures and reward talented Sailors who show sustained superior performance,” Prichard said. “This aligns with MyNavy Human Resources’ strategy to improve the way Sailors manage their careers.” The Navy’s Sea Warrior Program (PMW 240)

First naval aviators graduate USAF Pilot Training Next By 1st Lt. Pawel Puczko Chief of Naval Air Training Public Affairs

SAN ANTONIO (NNS) – The first two student naval aviators graduated from the U.S. Air Force’s Pilot Training Next (PTN) program at Randolph Air Force Base (AFB) just outside of San Antonio, Aug. 29. The PTN program is a course of instruction designed to train military pilots at a lower cost, in a shorter amount of time and with a higher level of proficiency leveraging emerging technologies to create a dynamic training environment. The PTN program individualizes training, adjusting to each student pilot’s strengths and weaknesses. It integrates virtual reality (VR), advanced biometrics, artificial intelligence (AI) and immersive training devices (ITD) with traditional methods of learning. “The most appealing part of this program is we step away from the common denominator or one-size-fitsall training that has to be done on a certain timeline,”

Det. 24 Commander U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Ryan Riley said. “With PTN we have been able to focus more on competencies and the focus of the individual student. We tailor the training to you, and that is a very different mindset shift and that is what I am most excited about.” Navy instructors selected Ensigns Charles Hill and Seth Murphy-Sweet for the PTN program in lieu of the standard Navy Primary Flight Training phase. This joint training effort is a step toward integrating emerging technologies into Navy’s flight training curriculum. Now Hill and Murphy-Sweet are ready to move forward to the advanced stage of flight training with the Navy’s Training Air Wing 2 at Naval Air Station Kingsville, Texas. “I think a big thing with this program was the ability to utilize the VR, get the experience and pacing down for each flight realtime,” Hill said. “This benefited all the students – being able to chair fly while being able to see the whole flight rather than to have to use your imagination. This helped in getting the motor skills

while we were able test it out in VR and see how the exact input corresponds to a correct output.” The relatively new program is being improved with each iteration and allows a more tailored approach to learning in comparison to traditional flight training from the instructor’s perspective. Instructors use a collaborative learning environment to evaluate and analyze students and subsequently make corrections and improvements. Integrating new technologies such as ITDs allows students to gain experience using real-world scenarios. Students can not only fly the strict patterns and procedures they learn from their books, but also integrate air traffic control decondition as well as other aircraft. CNATRA, headquartered in Corpus Christi, trains the world’s finest combat quality aviation professionals, delivering them at the right time, in the right numbers and at the right cost to a naval force that is where it matters, when it matters.

F

or the first time in the history of the Naval Construction Force (NCF), an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) was used in a Seabee operational exercise to gather imagery and data for a simulated airfield damage assessment Aug. 7. Intelligence Specialist 1st Class John Tallaksen, from Winder, Georgia, and Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Andrew Cleary, from Ramsey, New Jersey, both assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 1, piloted the SkyRaider R80D UAS during the battalion’s Field Training Exercise (FTX) at Camp Shelby, Mississippi. “We’re the first Seabee battalion to utilize this technology and show its capabilities,” Tallaksen said. “It’s humbling and I think it really signifies our motto of ‘The First and the Finest.’ ” NCF leadership has emphasized UAS technologies due to its relevance in Seabee operations. “(Naval Construction Group 2) wanted to see the effectiveness of UAS for Seabees in the field,” Tallaksen said. “Cleary and I were selected to become among the first UAS pilots in the Seabees.” To test the battalion’s UAS capabilities, a scenario was developed for NMCB-1’s FTX where a road was damaged by a vehicle-borne improvised explosive

device. Normally, Battlefield Damage Assessment (BDA) is a capability of the Seabees where units analyze damage and then make repairs. In the scenario, the same methods were applied, only this time using a UAS to help assess damage. “The intent was to prove the concept that BDA can be done with UAS,” Tallaksen said. “We can measure craters, assess needed materials for damage repair, and call (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) all because of UAS.” This first UAS flight was a success; the UAS operated effectively and the scenario was a great learning experience for the pilots. “I had a blast piloting the UAS,” Cleary said. “It’s cool being one of the first pilots in the Seabees. I want to fly it again soon.” “It’s so cool to fly these things,” Tallaksen said. “It can be nervewracking at first because you’re flying an expensive piece of equipment, but you get used to it.” Ensign Adam Goldsmith, assigned to NCG-2, oversaw the development of the UAS program

This is the first time UAS technology has been utilized in the Naval Construction Force, and NMCB-1 has the first certified UAS pilots in the Seabees. NMCB-1 is homeported in Gulfport, Miss., to prepare and execute a comprehensive unit-level training plan in order to meet future mission requirements.

and trained NMCB-1 personnel on pilot qualifications and UAS operations. After seeing the system’s first flight, he believes it’s ready to use in regular Seabee operations. “This system allows the NCF to pursue new tactics, techniques and procedures that will heighten force protection and improve the speed and quality of construction projects,” Goldsmith said. “The UAS program is a great example of how the NCF

is able to adapt to a changing technological environment and remain innovative.” After the successful piloting from NMCB-1, the future of UAS in the Seabees is bright. A variety of applications are currently being explored.

Hispanic Heritage Month

“Honoring Hispanic Americans: Essential to the Blueprint of our Nation”

By Mike O’Connor Gosport Editor

T

hroughout the United States and the armed forces, National Hispanic Heritage Month is being observed Sept. 15 through Oct. 15 to recognize the important contributions of Hispanic Americans. The theme for the 2019 National Hispanic Heritage Month, as provided by the National Council of Hispanic Employment Program Managers, is “Honoring Hispanic Americans: Essential to the Blueprint of Our Nation.” Originally conceived in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week by President Lyndon Johnson, the observance was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to include a 30-day period. The month was officially enacted into law Aug. 17, 1988, with the approval of Public Law 100-402. Sept. 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras

and Nicaragua. Two other nations, Mexico and Chile, celebrate their independence days Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively. According to the U.S. Census Bureau (2016), 6.5 percent Hispanics or Latinos 18 and older are veterans of the U.S. armed forces. Some famous military firsts for American hispanics: • Flying ace: Col. Manuel J. Fernández Jr., who flew 125 combat missions in the Korean War • Medal of Honor recipient: Philip Bazaar, a Chilean member of the U.S. Navy, for bravery during the Civil War. He received his Medal of Honor in 1865 • Admiral, U.S. Navy: David G. Farragut. In 1866, he became the first U.S. naval officer ever to

be awarded the rank of admiral. The first Hispanic American to become a four-star admiral was Horacio Rivero of Puerto Rico in 1964 • General, U.S. Army: Richard E. Cavazos, 1976. In 1982, he became the Army’s first Hispanic four-star general • Secretary of the Navy: Edward Hidalgo, 1979. In government firsts, American Hispanics can claim: • Member of U.S. Congress: Joseph Marion Hernández, 1822, delegate from the Florida territory

• U.S. Representative: Romualdo Pacheco, a representative from California, was elected in 1876 by a one-vote margin. He served for four months before his opponent succeeded in contesting the results. In 1879 he was again elected to Congress, where he served for two terms. • U.S. Senator: Octaviano Larrazolo was elected in 1928 to finish the term of New Mexico Sen. Andieus Jones, who had died in office. He served for six months before falling ill and stepping down; he died in 1930. The first Hispanic senator

to serve an entire term was Dennis Chávez of New Mexico, who served from 1935 to 1962 • U.S. Treasurer: Romana Acosta Bañuelos, 1971 to 1974 • U.S. Cabinet member: Lauro F. Cavazos, 1988 to 1990, secretary of education • U.S. Surgeon General: Antonia Coello Novello, 1990 to 1993. Additionally, she was also the first woman to hold the position • U.S. Secretary of Transportation: Federico Peña, 1993 • U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban

Development: Henry Cisneros, 1993 • U.S. Attorney General: Alberto Gonzales, 2005 • U.S. Supreme Court Justice: Sonia Sotomayor, 2009. She is also the third woman to hold the position • Hilda Solis served as the 25th United States Secretary of Labor from 2009 to 2013 Latinos for POTUS: U.S. Reps. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, both second-generation Cubans, ran for Republican candidate for president of the United States in 2016.

Hispanic heroism in Pensacola: Gen. Bernardo de Galvez From www.nps.gov

What ties unite Pensacola; Mobile, Alabama; Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Natchez, Mississippi? During the American Revolution, these towns were all part of British Florida and all were captured by Gen. Bernardo de Gálvez, the governor of Spanish Louisiana and his Spanish armies.

At age 29 in 1776, Gálvez was appointed governor of Spanish Louisiana. His mission, as top military and civilian authority of this land, was to deal fairly with the French Creole population, promote commerce, fight smuggling, cultivate friendship with the Indians and in case of war against Great Britain, he was expected to attack and take British West Florida, all with

only 500 soldiers. In August 1779, Spain finally declared war on Great Britain and Gálvez was free to act. Pensacola had a narrow entrance to its bay, and this entrance was guarded by a British fort. The first Spanish ship was fired upon and ran aground. The rest of the fleet retreated back to sea. Gálvez kept urging the Spanish

admiral to press the attack, but the admiral kept making excuses. Gálvez knew that the British fleet was on its way, so he decided to take the matter into his own hands. He took his own four ships, hoisted his personal flag in the lead ship, stood on the prow with his sword raised and ordered a 15-gun salute fired as he led his ships through

the pass. When the rest of the fleet saw this daring move, they urged the admiral to give the order to follow. The other ships followed Gálvez. After two months of fighting, the British finally surrendered in May 1781. The Battle of Pensacola had been one of the longest battles of the American Revolution.

Ormond Beach native vital in training IW warriors Story, photo by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Neo B. Greene III Center for Information Warfare Training

A

n Ormond Beach, Florida, native is a vital asset for a Navy command responsible for teaching future information warriors the skills required to defend America around the world. Ernie Hogan has served his country for a combined 40 years, and works as a cryptology assistant program manager, operating out of the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola Corry Station. For the past 13 years, he has served as a government employee and prior to this, he proudly and honorably served in the U.S. Navy for 27 years as an electronic warfare technician, retiring at the rank of master chief in 2006. As a cryptology assistant program manager, Hogan’s responsibilities include supervising 11

government officials, a junior officer and 14 senior enlisted cryptologists charged with managing CIWT’s cryptology technician (CT) and cryptology warfare officer courses. He is responsible for the oversight of 54 CT courses with an annual student throughput of about 4,300 personnel from all branches of service. Hogan is also the CIWT Sailor 2025 project lead and a liaison with Naval Education and Training Command (NETC)/Naval Air Warfare Training Systems Division for events in support of Ready Relevant Learning analysis, a pillar of the Navy’s Sailor 2025 initiative.

Ernie Hogan, an Ormand Beach, Florida native, has served his country for more than 40 years, and works as a cryptology assistant program manager, operating out of the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola Corry Station.

“Our CIWT domain is comprised of incredibly talented and professional people, and I’m grateful how our Navy civilians, like Mr. Hogan, play a vital role in the execution of our mission and in our warfighting effectiveness for the Navy the nation needs,” Jim Hagy, CIWT’s executive director said. “I’m humbled and honored to serve alongside him and for his dedication and service to not only this command, but this great nation.” Hogan’s command is recognized as the Navy’s

top learning center the past three years. The CIWT domain is charged with developing the future technical cadre of the information warfare community, and it leads, manages and delivers Navy and joint force training to approximately 21,000 students annually. With 1,200 military, civilian and contracted staff members, CIWT oversees about 200 courses at four information warfare training commands, two detachments and additional learning sites located throughout the

United States and Japan. CIWT is responsible for training enlisted cryptologic technicians, information systems technicians, intelligence specialists and electronics technicians. CIWT also provides training to cryptologic warfare, information professional, intelligence and foreign area officers that prepares them to be prepared to wage battle and assure the nation’s success in this burgeoning warfare arena. “The CIWT team is successful because each of our domain members, like Mr. Hogan, focuses daily on our job to ‘prepare Sailors for war’ in our area of information warfare,” CIWT’s Commanding Officer Capt. Nick Andrews said. “I’m extremely proud of how the impact of his hard work prepares Sailors for the Navy the nation needs, enhancing fleet readiness each and every day.” As a member of one of the U.S. Navy’s most relied-upon assets, Hogan and other CIWT staff and Sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes, serving as a key part of the information warfare community in its mission to gain a deep understanding of the inner

workings of adversaries and developing unmatched knowledge of the battlespace during wartime. These Sailors and staff have a tremendous responsibility in creating warfighting options for fleet commanders and advising decision makers at all levels as they serve worldwide aboard ships, submarines and aircraft and from the National Security Agency to the Pentagon. “I really do enjoy my job, even on the toughest days,” Hogan said. “I like to think that we deliver a critical product that supports Sailors, Marines, Airmen, Soldiers and Coast Guardsmen on the pointed end of the spear, enabling them to protect our country and our way of life.” With four schoolhouse commands, two detachments and training sites throughout the United States and Japan, CIWT is recognized as Naval Education and Training Command’s top learning center for the past three years. Training more than 21,000 students every year, CIWT delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services.
