Sept. 11, 2001, attacks remembered at NASP Story, photos by Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

It has been 11 years since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, but ATAN David Pietri said he would never forget the day. The planes that crashed into the twin towers hit close to home for Pietri, a native of upstate New York. “I remember how beautiful it was upstate that day, and when I got home my family told me what happened,” he said. “I tried to call my friends and other family, but it was difficult to get a hold of them. Thankfully, no one I knew was there, but a few were on their way to the towers.” Pietri, a student at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) and a member of the performing unit vocal team, delivered emotional renditions of “God Bless America” and “Amazing Grace” during a Sept. 11 commemoration

ceremony at the Naval Aviation Memorial Chapel on board Naval Air Station Pensacola. It was another beautiful, fall morning as about 300 participants and attendees gathered on the lawn in front of the chapel to pay their respects to the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives when terrorists high jacked four airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon near Washington, D.C., and a rural field in Shanksville, Penn. The solemn event opened with the national anthem and an invocation from Chaplain Lt. Joe Robbins. The steady breeze presented a challenge as three Sailors wrestled with a giant U.S. flag, which was raised to halfstaff for the ceremony. In his welcoming remarks, NASP Public

Enhanced Use Lease Project canceled at Saufley Field By Sue Brink NavFac SE PAO

KINGS BAY, Ga. – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) Southeast announced Sept. 11 the termination of the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and exclusive negotiations with the Saufley Group, LLC for an Enhanced Use Lease (EUL) at Saufley Field. Successful execution of the EUL was predicated on the relocation of various units from Saufley Field that occupy some of the facilities. Due to ongoing delays and continued uncertainty surrounding relocation funding, the RFQ and exclusive negotiations with the Saufley Group were terminated. “The unforeseen lack of renovation project funding has prevented relocation of the units and execution of a

mutually beneficial business agreement and lease,” said NAVFAC Southeast Real Estate Contracting Officer Robert McDowell in a letter to the Saufley Group, LLC. “Further, the projected legislative jurisdiction change for Saufley Field, which is considered necessary for a successful EUL, has not been accomplished. Consequently, cancellation of the project and termination of exclusive negotiations is considered in the best interests of the government,” said McDowell. Saufley Field is an active U.S. Navy facility located 10 miles north of Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. The base opened in August, 1940. During the height of the Vietnam War, Saufley Field was a full-fledged NAS. In 1976,

Saufley’s control tower was closed and its status as a NAS was changed to that of an Outlying Landing Field (OLF) supporting NAS Pensacola and NAS Whiting Field. Saufley Field was reactivated in 1979 when the Naval Education Training Program Development Center (NETPDC) moved there from Ellyson Field. The installation currently includes two runways in support of naval aviator and naval flight officer training by Training Air Wings Five and Six using T-6A, T-34C and TH57 aircraft. Saufley Field also has in excess of 34,425 square feet of hangar space that can support these aircraft. There are approximately 800 military and civilian personnel assigned to NETPDTC and other ten-

The group also gave back to the ship through a community relations project by prepping a portion of the ship to be refurbished and presenting a donation to the USS Alabama. According to staff of the USS Alabama, the CPO select efforts are much appreciated and a great way to bring our heritage forward.

“To learn the heritage of the Navy, its Sailors, and its chief petty officers is important in order to bring that forward to future generations, so we never forget where we came from,” said Owen Miller, a staff member of the USS Alabama for the event. “ ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,’ ” Miller added, quoting writer George Santayana. This year marks the fourth year in a row the CPO selects

Affairs Officer Harry White introduced the theme for the day: “We will never forget.” Ships featured on the event program – USS New York (LPD-21), USS Arlington (LPD-24) and the soon to be commissioned USS Somerset (LPD-25) – are examples of the Navy’s commitment to continue to honor the victims and heroes of 9/11, White said. The three ships are named in commemoration of the attacks. NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Plummer, the guest speaker, shared his intense memories of the day of the attacks. He was far away from home deployed on the USS Nimitz in the Arabian Sea, but he said he knew “our world had changed” as he watched tragedy unfolded on a television screen. “I think there’s a lot of value in remembering,” he said. “We should never forget the people who lost their lives.” One of the most touching moments of the event was the traditional “two-bell” ceremony executed by two firefighters from Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast. Rick Lubarsky tolled the bell as Greg Snyder recounted the numbers of people who died on each plane and in each tower and building. Other highlights included a 21-shot salute by a 3-man rifle team from the NASP honor guard, a poignant performance of “Taps” by bugler Mary Brockmeier and a benediction prayer by Father Jack Gray.

The tour began at the EOD Memorial, which bears the names of all EOD technicians killed in the line of duty since 1941. Capt. Joseph Polanin, commanding officer of NavScolEOD, spoke of the memorial, its enduring meaning, and the EOD force’s 71-year legacy of valor, which it embodies. He shared with the congressman what he tells all students on their first day in EOD basic training. “Our students will experience significant challenges and adversity which they and their teammates must learn to overcome,” said Polanin. “I tell them that if they’re having a bad day, take 10 minutes to visit the memorial and spend time with these heroes. Always remember what our fallen comrades stood for. They gave all so you have the freedom to pursue your dream, just as they did.” The congressman then visited the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) training division. He met Army Capt. Nicholas Drury, IED division officer and EODCS Joseph Severino, IED Division noncommissioned officer in charge. They explained the importance of their curriculum and how it has advanced to help EOD technicians defeat the most complex and irregular threats. “To go from where we were to where we are today, especially after 2001, is amazing,” said Severino. “I feel fortunate to be afforded the training and equipment we’re getting out in the field Ombudsman Day from page 1

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher W. Plummer Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

He observed a Talon EOD robot responding to a simulated IED as it was controlled by students from a remote location. While at the IED Division, the congressman presented Drury and Severino an award plaque to recognize their division for remarkable accomplishments to modernize facilities while substantially enhancing realism, relevance and rigor in the curriculum. When asked about the best part of the tour, the congressman answered, “There wasn’t a single best part – all of it was great. It is very humbling to be in the company of the young men and women who selflessly choose a career as an EOD technician for the safety of our nation.” NavScolEOD, located on Eglin Air Force Base, provides high-risk, specialized, basic and advanced EOD training to more than 2,200 U.S. and partner nation military and selected U.S. government personnel each year.

Plaque, tartar – what’s the difference? Dental health awareness: take care of your teeth now ... or the dentist will later Lt. Cmdr. Leslie H. Trippe Dental Department Head NHP, Corry Station

Plaque is not food. Dental plaque is a sticky, colorless film that continually forms in between and on the surfaces of the teeth. Our body produces plaque 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Dental plaque is a biofilm that is made up of microorganisms such as streptococcus mutans and other bacteria. It can develop on teeth above the gum line (supragingival), below the gum line on the roots of teeth (subgingival) and along the gum line. Some of these bacteria accumulations aid in digestion, which actually starts in our mouth. The big issue is when this plaque/ bacteria starts to hang around for a while and “colonize.” When plaque develops beneath the gum line, the bacteria can cause irritation and inflammation of the gum tissue. Now you have gingivitis (inflamed gums) and gum disease, which show up in the form of redness and bleeding. The other negative with dental plaque is with tooth decay (cavities). Plaque that is left on the teeth and gums mixes with anything sugary that we eat, or especially drink, and acid is formed.

This acid does not get along well with our enamel and therefore you will have tooth decay. Scenario: I have a patient that sits down in my dental chair. After I take one very quick look in their mouth and I ask, “are you drinking sports drinks, soda or energy drinks every day?” Frequently they reply, “Yes; how did you know that, ma’am?” Well, it is rather easy when I see many, many areas of decay sitting on the teeth right at the gumline. The idea is to remove the plaque really well, daily with brushing and flossing, and prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Tartar is calcified or hardened plaque. Leave the soft, sticky plaque on your teeth for about 48 hours and it will calcify into tartar, which will not come off with brushing or flossing. Calculus or tartar is caused by a mixture of minerals from our saliva and plaque. Its rough surface provides an ideal base for further plaque formation, threatening the health of the gums. It is a “scaffold” that is perfect for future plaque to lie down and wreak havoc on our precious gums. Tartar is only removed by a professional with ultrasonic scaling or hand instrumentation. We



all miss areas when we brush and floss and this is why it is very important to see your dentist and dental hygienist regularly. Some people have a higher mineral content in their saliva and actually need to have a professional cleaning every three to four months. Others may find that every six months to a year is adequate. So, now the questions that I receive most often … “How do I keep the plaque from building up?”

First, the important thing to remember is that plaque is best removed from a “mechanical” method, vs. a “chemical” one. Mechanical is defined by the bristles on the toothbrush and the action of the floss. Chemical refers to rinses and toothpastes. “What is the best toothpaste? Floss?” Just pick one that you like as long as it contains fluoride. Toothpaste provides flavor, fluoride and a small amount of surfactant or “soap” to allow for the foaming action. The plaque is

truly removed from the mechanical action of the toothbrush, and is simply aided by the toothpaste. There are a variety of different flosses to chose from, and they even come in flavors. Several of my patients have started using and prefer the floss “piks,” or floss holders. I suggest to find a floss that works well in your hands, and doesn’t shred. There are also many shred resistant floss brands such as Glide and Easy Slide that work well for many patients. As far as mouth rinses, my two favorite brands are Listerine and Crest Pro Health. They both work very well in killing many of the bacteria that live in dental plaque. Listerine has a high percentage of alcohol which can be very drying, however. If a patient takes a lot of medications, or just has dry mouth, I refer them to the Crest Pro Health products, as they are alcohol free. Both brands also offer a fluoride rinse as well, which is very helpful in preventing future tooth decay, or decreasing cold sensitivity. I hope this information was helpful. Don’t forget to visit your professional dental provider on a regular basis. The Navy dental teams are all standing by at our branch dental clinics, ready to take care of our active-duty members.

NavScolEOD donates blood for military and local community Ens. Elizabeth Allen Center for Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Diving PAO

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE – Volunteers at the Naval School of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NavScolEOD) provided 84 pints of blood for the American Red Cross during a blood drive held Aug. 23. The school’s initial goal of 49 donors was surpassed when more than 90 students, instructors and staff volunteered to provide blood during the event. “I’ve organized blood drives at my previous commands,” said HM2 Kelvin Murphy, a corpsman stationed at NavScolEOD. “People do not realize how much this means to the local community and our military.” After the blood is collected, 10 percent is used for patients from the U.S. military, both stateside and overseas. The rest of the blood stays in the local community and is used by area hospitals. “Most of the students here at the school are 18 to 24 years old,” said Murphy. “For some, the only experience they may have with donating blood is at boot camp. We want to show them that it is a positive thing to donate blood and that it is a great way to help the community.” According to the American Red Cross blood coordinator Lillian Johnson, the EOD school was at the top of their visit list. Johnson has volunteered at hundreds of blood drives throughout her 30 years of volunteering. “We’ve been looking forward to coming out here for a long time,” said Johnson. “Everyone out here has a good attitude and a great sense of humor; it makes the day worthwhile.” Nurses and phlebotomists provided by the American Red Cross began seeing volunteers at 10 a.m., and continued working until 3 p.m. “The last time a blood drive was held at NavScolEOD was in the summer of 2011,” added Murphy. “Due to the positive turnout, we hope to conduct another blood drive in the near future.” NavScolEOD, located on Eglin Air Force Base, provides high-risk, specialized, basic and advanced EOD training to more than 2,200 U.S. and partner nation military and selected U.S. government personnel each year.

EOD school hosts visit from Mozambique military Ens. Elizabeth Allen Center for Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Diving PAO

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE – A delegation from the Mozambique military spent the morning of Aug. 23 at the Naval School of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NavScolEOD) touring the school and its facilities. The tour included much of the EOD School, including the Demolition Division, Tools and Methods Division, Air Ordnance Division, and the Improvised Explosive Device Division. “This is a very big school,” said Col. Dias Jaqueta of the Mozambique Armed Forces.

“The training here is going to help a lot of people around the world and contribute to peace. This tour has helped us to understand different parts of the training.” Throughout the tour, Billy Martin, international military student programs officer at NavScolEOD, explained the

importance of training and how making it as realistic as possible provides the most effective education to the students. “We stay busy with our mission,” said Martin. “Training remains very important, so we set up all of our scenarios as realistically as possible – we train as we fight.” One scenario seen by the Mozambicans simulated a chemical bomb that fell off a truck while in transit. EOD students must take the knowledge learned up to that point in their training and assess the situation, determining how to solve the problem while observing

all safety procedures. At the Air Ordnance Division, the group toured the 20 aircraft available to provide students realistic training scenarios. The students learn about the hazards of working around aircraft, as well as ordnance onboard, including guided miss i l e s , bombs, dispensers and payloads. “I learned a lot about the course – it is a very good course and I hope to participate in it to strengthen our Mozambique armed forces,” said Lt. Col. Orlando Fernando Uaiene. “The time spent here has been very helpful.”

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE – The Naval School of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NavScolEOD) was recognized for their retention efforts in a ceremony at the schoolhouse Aug. 17. The Retention Excellence Award was presented to NCCS Latonya Luter and Command Master Chief Stacey McClain for their retention efforts at NavScolEOD for fiscal year 2011. “The Navy sets retention benchmarks for each fiscal year, along with certain career information program objectives that must be met,” said Luter. “If the benchmarks are met and a successful career information program is in place as noted by the immediate superior in command (ISIC) annual program review, the command earns the award. Our ISIC is Naval Education and Training Command.” The school’s Retention Excellence Award was a result of a recent career information program inspection that deemed the

school deserving for reenlisting 100 percent of Sailors who had six-to-14 years of service, and who met specific eligibility requirements. The award was presented by NavScolEOD Commanding Officer Capt. Joe Polanin, and the retention pennant was raised shortly thereafter. It will continue to be flown until the next fiscal year’s retention excellence message is released. As command master chief, McClain noted that retention is a reflection of the entire command climate and also takes a team effort. “This is an award for everybody, but the meatand-potatoes comes from what Senior Chief Luter does, as well as the support our staff gives her,” said McClain. “Obviously she’s doing the right thing, and I really appreciate it.” United States Fleet Forces Command established the award through the Fleet Retention Excellence Program. When Navy ships receive this award, they are authorized to paint their anchors gold. Shore commands receive a pennant that is flown on the command flagpole.

NavFac celebrates 170th birthday From NavFac SE PAO

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – On Aug. 31, the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) celebrated 170 years of naval history. 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. “Our team of Civil Engineer Corps officers, civilian personnel and Seabees are testament to the remarkable contributions of those who have given their all to this organization in the past 170 years,” said Capt. Christopher Kiwus, NavFac Southeast commanding officer. “I could not be more proud of what our NavFac team is doing for our supported commanders and the Sailors and Marines who live on the installations we support, along with their families.” NavFac is the naval systems command that delivers and maintains high-quality, sustainable facilities, acquires and manages capabilities for the Navy’s expeditionary combat forces, enables energy security and environmental stewardship, and provides humanitarian and contingency engineering response.

In this undated photo (probably late 1950s-early ’60s) electricians Carl Schwartz and Clifton Morgan work on a project at Public Works Center Norfolk. Photo courtesy NavFac

NavFac’s signature is visible on every Navy and Marine Corps installation around the globe. Nearly every pier, runway, building, gymnasium, barracks, road, utility plant and other facilities on shore has been constructed or acquired by NavFac. NavFac Southeast employs 1,800 people at 22 installations throughout the southeastern United States and Cuba and delivers and maintains highquality, sustainable facilities, enables energy security and environmental stewardship, and provides humanitarian and contingency engineering response. In fiscal year 2011, NavFac Southeast delivered more than $1.3 billion in products and services to supported Navy and Marine Corps commanders, as

well as other federal agencies. The command’s regional team of planning, construction, facilities services, environmental and acquisition subject matter experts executed approximately 5,700 separate contract actions during the year. NavFac Southeast’s Public Works Departments answered more than 40,000 in-house service calls in a demanding 24/7 environment, with half of the NavFac Southeast bases on a base operating service contract answering more than 60,000 service calls. This critical work is a vital enabler for what takes place daily on bases around the world. NavFac experts provide engineering reach-back support to war fighters as well as response and recovery support

for disasters like the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, and hurricanes Katrina and Gustav. Last week, in response to Hurricane Isaac, NavFac Southeast sent a Contingency Engineering Response Team (CERT) composed of 15 military and civilian personnel to Naval Construction Battalion Center Gulfport and Naval Air Station-Joint Reserve Base New Orleans. Delivering sustainable and cost-effective solutions is increasingly important in the austere fiscal environment our nation is facing. Last year, in support of the secretary of the Navy’s ambitious goals to achieve energy security and efficiency, NavFac helped sup-

ported commanders reduce energy consumption by 15 percent from a 2003 baseline. In addition, NavFac’s contributions to the Navy’s shore energy program during the last 10 years has resulted in the Navy being awarded 24 percent of all presidential and 29 percent of all federal energy awards. NavFac also provides supported commanders with environmental expertise, such as installation restoration, environmental compliance and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) planning and coordination. In 2011, NavFac exceeded all governmentwide program goals and targets, with more than 55 percent of the total dollars awarded and more than 25,000 contracts going to small businesses. NavFac Southeast’s small business program was the only one in NavFac to achieve every individual program goal. Consequently, the Navy’s Office of Small Business Programs awarded the Secretary’s Cup award to NavFac for promoting acquisition opportunities for small businesses during a ceremony held at the Pentagon in June. NavFac has a history of delivering products and services for supported commands since 1842. Building on 170 years of experience, NavFac continues to manage the planning, design, construction, contingency engineering, real estate, environmental and public works support for U.S. Navy shore facilities all over the world.

Whiting Warriors cap baseball ‘season of the ages’ By Lt. j.g. Tim Mosso NASWF PAO

The Naval Air Station Whiting Field Whiting Warriors softball team always had the heart of champions, and now the base’s boys of summer have the rings to match. The Warriors capped a season for the ages with a dominant win over Tyndall Air Force Base in the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) Military World Tournament in Panama City last month. “We went through four rounds undefeated. In the championship game we left no doubt who the number one team was, winning 21-6,” base Moral, Welfare and Recreation Sports Coordinator Todd Mooneyham noted with relish. It was the team’s third consecutive playoff result in the annual tournament that pits military squads against each other in a bid for DoD bragging rights. Despite standout individual and collective performances – the Warriors boasted the top-ranked defense in both previous tournament appearances – the squad twice had fallen short of a title. For 2012, a new strategy was unveiled. This year, the Warriors arrived for spring training with the playoffs already in mind. According to comanager ATCM Michael Frazier, full-squad workouts and drills commenced in on the first of April, earlier than in previous years, and new rivalries loomed on the regular season schedule of seven Southeastern Conference tournaments. Mooneyham, who shares player/manager duties with two of his

teammates, explains the champs’ new approach. “In the past we played only military tournaments – which was good but not good enough. This year, we focused on playing more civilian tournaments to help prepare for the stronger military teams.” While previous Warriors’ squads had excelled in defense, the 2012 squad was a band of armed forces all-stars. “This year, we added the number one offense (in the tournament),” Mooneyham explained. The World Tournament contenders – 25 of the top military installation squads from around the nation – were powerless against the Warriors’ onslaught. The air station’s composite club routed its opposition during the team’s four-round undefeated tournament run. While there is no crying in baseball, the Warrior’s rout of Tyndall may have been a test-case for softball’s stance on sobbing; Mooneyham describes the vanquished Air Force team as “shell shocked,” by Milton’s own Murderers’ Row. Nevertheless, the Warriors played their entire 2012 season with the comportment not only of good sportsmen but of true gentlemen. While the Warriors finished no lower than third in any tournament they entered, the team’s gameplay embodied honor and grace regardless of outcome. The expanded schedule of mixed tournaments gave the squad an opportunity to make an impression on a new set of friendly rivals. “The best part is that we did it with respect for the game and class. We have made a name for

The Whiting Warriors — front row: James Timanus, Jake Black, Ken Pratt, Adam Turner and Brandon Gittings. Back row: Todd Mooneyham, Gilbert Gonzalez, Tony Bral, Wes Williamson, Kyle Richardson, Josh Waring, Preston Curry, Dan Lagomarsino, Gary Ashley, Mike Frazier, Dan Francisco and Warner Tarrants.

ourselves in the civilian community as well as the military,” Mooneyham noted with pride. Beyond the bravado and the glory, the story of the Warriors’ 2012 title run was a tale of camaraderie with an emphasis on loyalty to friends past and present. The team’s diverse roster of 16 men resembles a cross-section of the air station population. Active-duty officer and enlisted players joined retirees and DoD civilians in the lineup. The contract maintenance, air traffic control, aviation, maintenance officer, physical security and civilian staff communities are represented each time the Warriors take the field. Moreover, multiple services go to bat for the base. “We have Marine Corps, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard players on the team,” Frazier explained. The eclectic backgrounds of these men

endowed the Warriors with an unbeatable blend of rookie hunger and veteran poise. In many respects, the synergy of skills translates directly to the ideal of the modern military in which individuals and units of different aptitudes and backgrounds pool their abilities for operational excellence. Frazier emphasizes the positive impact that sports can have on unit and station morale. “Team sports are invaluable on a military installation. It is a way for people to be involved in something away from their job and feel good about an accomplishment,” he opined. Mooneyham expands on that view. In addition to the uplifting benefit of physical activity and enhanced investment in the military community, he sees value in the relationships that players forge with their teammates. “Team sports offers that sense of top competi-

tion with the greatest camaraderie there is,” Mooneyham declared. “We had each other’s back and fed off each other … it was the ultimate team effort. This program mixes all aspects of the base together into a common interest and friendships are formed that last forever.” In the spirit of enduring friendship, the 2012 Warriors paid seasonlong tribute to the late Lt. j.g. Thomas Cameron, a Coast Guard aviator who trained at the air station while playing in Warriors’ 2011 campaign. Cameron died during a February 2012 helicopter crash in Mobile, Ala. “We dedicated this season to Lt. j.g. Thomas Cameron and his family. We have a T-shirt with his picture on it that we hang in our dugout during every game,” Mooneyham related. The 2012 Warriors drew strength and inspiration from the memory of Cameron’s energy and

attitude. His resilience to setbacks and MVP-caliber play left a lasting impression on his team mates. “Every time that we stacked it up this year, and I mean every time, three to four times a game we would put all of our hands together and yell ‘1,2,3, Thomas.’ This championship was very emotional and was won for Thomas. He was the ultimate Warrior,” Mooneyham added. The 2012 Whiting Warriors championship will be commemorated in traditional ballgame fashion with a trophy for posterity and ceremonial rings for the players. USSSA will provide both items as the spoils of victory and the Warriors themselves will design the rings. The trophy will occupy a position of honor in the base headquarters building as a lasting testament to the air station’s winning tradition – on and off the field.

Diversity United, Building Americas Future Today Hispanic Heritage Month By Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

Throughout the United States and the Navy, National Hispanic Heritage Month is being observed Sept. 15-Oct. 15 to recognize the important contributions of Hispanic Americans. The theme for 2012, “Diversity United, Building America’s Future Today,” was selected by the National Council of Hispanic Employment Program Managers (NCHEPM) to reflect the strength of the cultural roots of Hispanic people from Europe, Africa and the Americas. 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 on 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. According to the U.S. Census Bureau (2010), 1.2 million 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 through 1962. U.S. Treasurer: Romana Acosta

Navy Exchange hosts reenlistment ceremony By Hollie Livingston Pensacola NEX

For centuries service men and women have answered the call of duty in national defense. Nothing so solemnly affirms one’s commitment to that duty better than the enlistment oath of office. On Aug. 24, the Navy Exchange (NEX) Corry Station student store hosted the official Navy reenlistment ceremony of CTR1 Kip Miller. Miller, from Lansing, Mich., served 10 years in the Navy before deciding to reenlist for an additional six years. “I would like to have my reenlistment at the NEX because all of the employees are very friendly and this is something they might not normally see,” Miller said. The ceremony was performed by Lt. Cmdr. Christopher J. Storey with attendance by Center for Information Dominance Commanding Officer Cmdr. Luciana Sung and Executive Officer Lt. Cmdr. Ira Lambeth. NEX Corry Station Store Manager Kim Vestal takes pride in serving her patrons and has developed a close relationship with many of them. “It is exciting that CTR1 Miller chose to have his reenlistment here with us,” Vestal said. “We feel privileged to be a

CID hosts ACE college credit recommendation evaluation team By CID Public Affairs

The Center for Information Dominance (CID) hosted an on-site evaluation team from the American Council on Education (ACE) Aug. 22-24. This is one of a series of visits the ACE program makes annually to military installations to review and evaluate training courses and occupations. “The purpose of the site visit for course evaluations is to review and evaluate the military training courses here at CID,” Supervisory Instructional Systems Specialist and CID ACE & Council on Education (COE) Liaison Denise Myers said. “The ACE recommendations are based on the knowledge and skill required for each specialization.” Since 1945, ACE has provided a collaborative link between the U.S. Department

of Defense (DoD) and higher education through the review of military training and experiences, and is coordinated through the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES). Based on the ACE findings and recommendations, individual colleges and universities may award equivalent college credits for military training and/or experience a service member successfully completes. Thanks to those ACE recommendations, Sailors can receive academic credit for most of their training, including boot camp. Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) Institutional Accreditation Manager Roland E. Perez explained that people often confuse the ACE recommendations with accreditation,

which though similar sounding, is an altogether separate process. “The term ‘accreditation’ is not associated with the ACE process,” Perez said. “ACE evaluates qualified training courses and selected military experiences for academic credit recommendations. Accreditation, on the other hand, is a distinct and separate process.” Part of that process is a 10year review of Navy occupations and Navy courses, or whenever significant changes to the duties and tasks change for a specific rate or when major changes in courses occur. For example, the Cryptologic Technician Networks (CTN) “A” school has seen major changes to its curriculum with the addition of the Joint Cyber Analysis Course (JCAC).

During the three-day review at CID the ACE Evaluation Team, which was composed of six college and university professors and four ACE staff, evaluated two Navy enlisted ratings – information systems technician (IT) and CTN – and six CID technical training courses. All of ACE’s recommendations for credit are based on reviews conducted by professors who are active at colleges and universities around the country. How they make that determination is by analyzing teaching materials, identifying learning outcomes and recommending whether colleges and universities will accept that experience and training for college credit. The ACE recommendation identifies and describes the discipline, the level of learning and the number of credit hours offered by individual training programs and other educational experiences.
