NASP stages relief flight to NAS Key West Story, photos by Mike O’Connor Gosport Editor

NAS Pensacola served as a staging point for a Hurricane Irma relief flight to NAS Key West Sept. 12. A C40-A Clipper operated by Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 61 (VR-61) took on 10,800 pounds of bottled water, 6,000 pounds of food and a group of personnel for NAS Key West. NAS Pensacola was undamaged by Hurricane Irma and is positioned to support relief efforts in the days to come. NASP Air Operations personnel and a group of the base’s chief petty officer selects – who are scheduled to be pinned as chiefs in a ceremony today, Sept. 15 – helped load the supplies. After leaving NAS Pensacola, the C40 was bound for NAS Jacksonville for further loading of personnel and supplies.

Hurricane Irma made landfall as a Category 4 storm in the Florida Keys Sept. 10, and made landfall a second time on Marco Island on the state’s Gulf Coast. According to http:// navylive. dodlive. mil, the Department of Defense had troops and equipment positioned to respond, while continuing to assist authorities in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. U.S. Northern Command is coordinating the response with support from several DoD components, including the Navy. Essential personnel at NAS Key West have been asked to return to base.

CERT deploys to Key West after Hurricane Irma By Sue Brink NavFac Southeast Public Affairs Office

JACKSONVILLE, Florida (NNS) – Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast (NavFac SE) dispatched part of a 17-person Contingency Engineering Response Team (CERT) Sept. 12 to Naval Air Station (NAS) Key West from NAS Jacksonville. The rest of the team flew down Sept. 13 on a separate flight.

“We are headed to Key West today to assess damage that has occurred at NAS Key West,” said Lt. Cmdr. Sean Gorman, CERT officer in charge and the incoming public works officer for NAS

Key West. “We will be working first to set up an emergency operations center for the team and immediately deploying teams to assess critical facilities.” The CERT will evaluate facilities on base that received damage from Hurricane Irma as it passed through the Key West Sunday morning, Sept. 10. There will be three Disaster Assessment Teams (DATs) on the CERT which consist of structural, electrical and me-

chanical engineers, architects, roofing specialists, community planners and construction contract specialists that deploy to begin Rapid Damage Assessments. “It is during this initial phase that damage is rapidly assessed to support restoration of basic functions such as debris removal and reopening roadways, See CERT on page 2

As America’s youngest branch of the military approaches its 70th anniversary, many of the U.S. Air Force’s units are actually celebrating their 75th and 100th anniversaries with their respective foundings dating back to the world wars. One such unit celebrating its 75th anniversary

is located at Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) in the 479th Flying Training Group (479th FTG). Today’s 455th Flying Training Squadron’s mission is to train undergraduate combat system officers (CSOs) in their primary phase of training using the T-6 Texan II. Seventy-five years ago they had a much different mission when the unit was activated as the 455th Bomb Squadron, Aug. 4, 1942 in Columbia, S.C. Soon after activation

the 455th moved to MacDill AFB where it joined the 323rd Bomb Group “White-Tailed Marauders.” Also at MacDill, the 455th’s air and maintenance crews became acquainted with their new aircraft, the B-26 Marauder, which sported names like Miss Emily, Dragon Wagon, Texas Terror and Swamp Chicken. Now fully trained on their new See USAF on page 2

Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) will honor its command ombudsmen with a no-host luncheon Sept. 19 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mustin Beach Club (450 Radford Blvd., Bldg. 250). Tickets will be available for purchase for $15. The command ombudsman is normally the spouse of an active-duty or selected reserve command member. The ombudsman supports the Navy’s mission by providing communications, outreach, resource referral and other important information to command families, especially during times of deployment.

Gold Star / Bells Across America Sept. 21 ... Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) and the National Naval Aviation Museum will honor Gold Star family members in a ceremony which recognizes the service and sacrifice of all those who lost an active-duty parent, spouse or child, regardless of the branch of service or cause of death. Bells Across America for Fallen Services Members, a remembrance ceremony, will be held at 11 a.m. Sept. 21, in the atrium of the National Naval Aviation Museum.

Dragon Masters deactivated after six decades of AMCM excellence By Jacqui Barker Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division

PANAMA CITY, Florida – After 63 years of flying test and evaluation mission flights, the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) Dragon Masters aviation unit was deactivated in a ceremony Sept. 8. The aviation unit mission was to fly test and evaluation missions for the only Navy lab located along the Gulf Coast. The unit was comprised of 28 military, 25 contractors and two MH60S aircraft flown not only for test and evaluation, but also search and rescue flights. The aircraft were returned to fleet use in San Diego, Calif., Sept. 10. “NSWC PCD will continue to support the Navy’s fleet mine countermeasure missions. Even

though we deactivated the Dragon Masters aviation unit and our military family moves on to take on other challenges, Panama City’s work in airborne MCM will continue.” said NSWC PCD Commanding Officer Capt. Aaron Peters. “We will continue to host the fleet each year in Panama City and we will continue to respond to the fleet’s airborne mine countermeasures call for support, we just won’t fly MH-60S helicopters anymore.” Of the 28 military and 25 contractors assigned to the Dragon Masters, at least five military billets will be retained as well as at least three contract positions. The military will phase out over a three year period between fiscal year 2018 and 2020. These personnel will be retained to maintain the flight line and keep it open for MH-53E squadrons to train at the

Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program Seeking Military Victim Advocates From NASP SAPR

The NAS Pensacola (NASP) Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program is currently recruiting active duty military members who desire to serve as Victim Advocates (VA) for the Naval Air Station Pensacola SAPR team. DoD requires all VA’s to be certified through the Defense Sexual Assault Advocate Certification Program (DSAACP). The first step is for the VA candidate to be validated by their CO via the command SAPR POC. After the VA candidate is validated by the command and has a current clearance of NAC or above within the last three years, the next step is to complete the required 40 hours SAPR initial VA class. The next 40 hours VA class will be held at the

NETC HRO Bldg. 680 Rm. 227 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Oct . 2 to 6. A VA registration packet, a completed and signed DD Form 2950 Page 10 and a personal interview with one of the NASP SARC’s are required prior to attending class. The last day for packet/interview is Sept. 27. Once class is completed successfully, and the VA candidate receives the command and SARC’s endorsement, the VA then applies to receive their DSAACP certification. If you are interested in becoming a VA for sexual assault victims or would like more info, contact Lillie Johnson, Lillie.o.johnson @navy.mil, 452-5109, or Jennifer Walker, Jennifer.walker1 @navy.mil, 452-9017 or the NASP Fleet and Family Support Center 452-5990, ext. 0.

Since then, the command has experienced several technical achievements, to include supporting the successful completion of the Airborne Laser Mine Detection System and Airborne Mine Neutralization System through the Department of Defense acquisition milestone known as Initial Operational Test and Evaluation. In 2013, the Dragon Masters made headlines after utilizing their SAR capabilities and rescued a stranded mariner from the Gulf of Mexico, but that is not the first time the unit saved people from the Gulf. In February 2017, the Dragon Masters successfully flew a test flight that allowed aircrew members to insert a MK-18 unmanned underwater vehicle into the water to sweep for mines and be utilized as a mine countermeasure deterrent.

aircraft the 455th’s roughly 640 personnel deployed to Earls Colne, England in April 1943. From there, they flew many harrowing raids deep into Axis territory using their newly developed medium altitude bombing tactics. Their targets included marshalling yards, bridges and even top-secret V-1 rocket sites. The 455th also played major roles in several pivotal battles of World War II including the Normandy invasion and the Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes, for which the squadron was awarded a Presidential Unit Cita-

tion. This lineage of excellence carries on to the 455th of today. The instructor pilots of the Nighthawks, as the squadron is known today, leverage their years of real world combat flying experience to train the next generation of CSOs in the fundamentals of aviation and working as a crew. The same hard lessons that were forged by the blood and courage of the pilots, navigators and bombardiers of the 455th in the skies of Europe 75 years ago go into the production of the “World’s Greatest Combat Systems Officers.”

The importance of sleep: you lose if you do not snooze By Douglas Stutz Naval Hospital Bremerton

Whether trying for a quick snooze, occasional siesta or attempted slumber, Sailors and Marines are continually at risk for the actual health threat of insufficient sleep. “Sleep has been identified and prioritized as a leading Health and Wellness Department and disease prevention goal,” said Trish Skinner, Naval Hospital Bremerton (NHB) Health and Wellness Department health educator. “Sleep is an important element of health and wellbeing, just like nutrition and physical fitness. Adequate sleep is necessary to fight off infection, support the metabolism of sugar to prevent diabetes, perform well in school and work effectively and safely.” According to Fleet and Marine Corps Health Risk Assessment surveys and the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC), personnel are reporting insufficient sleep at a steady increase from 31 percent in 2008 to 2009 to 37 percent in 2016. A related DoD survey shows that 40.9 percent get 7 to 8 hours of av-

erage sleep, with 43.5 percent getting five to six hours and 11.4 percent averaging under four hours. “There were 37 percent of military members and 29 percent of civilian staff who reported they do not get enough restful sleep to function well on the job and in their personal life,” Skinner said. “Our department is focusing on the needs and benefits of adequate sleep with awareness, educa-

tion and intervention techniques throughout August.” Sleep deprivation, lack of rest and minimal amount of forty-winks are impactful physically as well as mentally. Research shows even young, healthy service members lose 25 percent of their ability to think clearly after only one day without adequate sleep. “When we sleep our body goes through a very intricate process where it recovers and

rebuilds,” said HM2 Christopher Stevens, a NHB mental health sleep hygiene specialist. “Short and long-term memories are allocated and stored. It gives our physical body time to rest and rebuild broken down muscle and tissue.” The effects of poor sleep have been documented leading to mishaps involving aviation and motor vehicle accidents, work performance issues with higher error rate, quality of life concerns such as increased fatigue, decreased response time and lowered immune function and mental health consequences such as irritability. Yet people still take sleep for granted. “When we start to feel stressed, self-care is one of the first things we throw out the window,” Stephens said. “When we have an important test coming up, a deployment, when we are feeling stressed at work or we are having trouble with our personal lives, it’s very easy for us to find time to accommodate these stressors by neglecting things like physical fitness, nutrition and sleep. In the end, neglecting self-care only helps to decrease performance as we are not able to effectively manage

stressors at an optimum level.” Skinner attests that the prevailing consensus is that adults should strive for seven to eight hours of sleep every day for optimum performance. Studies have shown that those who do get that amount of sleep are able to learn and retain information better and outperform those not as rested on daily activities. Yet those in the military, especially in an operational status, know that at times being able to implement such simple tips can be easier said than done. “It’s no secret that military service often results in periods of decreased sleep,” Stephens said. “Service members need to use what opportunity they have to get good sleep. Taking time to focus on self-care increases our performance to the physical and mental demands of arduous tasks or deployment. You can think of it like trying to cut down a tree with a blunt saw. Trying it that way is difficult. Taking the time to sharpen the saw will make the cutting down the tree more effective. Our mind and body are like that saw. So take the time to sharpen your saw.”

HURRICANE IRMA RELIEF: Navy mobilizes to provide humanitarian support USS Wasp, USS Kearsarge, USS Oak Hill support relief mission in Virgin Islands From U.S. Fleet Forces Command Public Affairs

N

ORFOLK (NNS) – The amphibious assault ships USS Wasp (LHD 1), USS Kearsarge (LHD 3) and dock landing ship USS Oak Hill (LSD 51) along with the Marines of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit (26th MEU) are supporting the lead federal agency in providing humanitarian relief efforts for Hurricane Irma. Wasp, the first Navy platform to arrive in the vicinity of the U.S. Virgin Islands, is providing medium and heavy lift helicopters to transport people and supplies. Wasp’s helicopters are conducting medical evacuations for intensive care patients from St. Thomas to St. Croix and conducting site assessments on the initial damage in St. Thomas. Wasp departed for Sasebo, Japan, Aug. 30, to assume duties as the forward-deployed flagship of the amphibious force of the U.S. 7th Fleet. The

ship was conducting its transit and was redirected to assist with relief efforts. Kearsarge and Oak Hill departed Norfolk, Va. Aug. 31, to support relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. They were redirected to be in a position to support efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. The combined aircraft on all three ships include three UH-1Y Marine Utility Helicopters, three CH53E Marine Heavy Lift Helicopters, five MV-22 Marine Tiltrotor aircraft and nine MH-60S Navy Medium Lift Helicopters.

IWTC Corry Station completes supervisor training From Center for Information Warfare Training

Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station completed its first Course Supervisor Course, Aug. 29. Thirteen of the command’s 32 course supervisors attended the twoday class. The training is part of IWTC Corry Station’s initiative to strengthen its instructional delivery mission. “This is just one example of the command’s team approach in working toward training solutions that improve what we are tasked to accomplish,” said CTRCM Eddy Mejias, IWTC Corry Station’s senior enlisted leader. The course aims to provide the baseline knowledge required for course supervisors to efficiently manage their courses of instruction, maintain instructor records and proficiency and ensure course curriculum cur-

rency in accordance with Naval Education and Training Command, Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) and IWTC Corry Station instructions. “The CIWT Learning Standards Office’s (LSO) advice has been beneficial in helping us focus our initial improvement efforts,” said Thomas Priest, one of the course developers. George Trice, IWTC Corry Station’s training director, said that the command’s leadership has engaged in a long-term, sustained, continual instructional process improvement approach.

NWU Type III wear rules and distribution plan announced From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – The Navy announced Thursday in NavAdmin 214/17 the wear rules and Fleet distribution plan for the Navy Working Uniform (NWU) Type III along with a list of approved boots Sailors can wear with the uniform. Additionally, the Navy also announced that 350 Sailors assigned to afloat units and shore installations are taking part in a three-month boot wear test to identify a replacement for the current NWU boot that is issued to Sailors. The completion of the boot study is expected by the end of this year. The 24-month fleet fielding plan for the NWU Type III begins Oct. 1 and ends Sept. 30, 2019. However, the uniform is now available for purchase in Navy Exchange Uniform Centers at Newport, R.I.; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; and at Navy installations in Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia. Below is the fleet distribution schedule for the NWU Type III:

• October 2017 – New accessions and Sailors assigned to commands at Recruit Training Command, Navy Officer Training Command and Navy Region Southwest • January 2018 – Navy Region Southeast • July 2018 – Navy Region Mid-Atlantic and Naval District Washington Region • January 2019 – Navy Region Japan and Guam • March 2019 – Navy Region Northwest • June 2019 – NEXCOM uniform website and call center • July 2019 – Other service exchange stores (i.e., Army and Air Force Exchange Service stores) Manufacturing production rates could accelerate or delay uniform availability and would mean some adjustment to the implementation schedule. The NavAdmin also contains the list of NWU Type III sea bag requirements, optional items and wear rules that apply starting Oct. 1. Enlisted Sailors’ clothing replacement allowances will increase beginning Oct. 1 and continue to expand

in fiscal years 2018 and 2019. By law, commissioned officers are entitled to a one-time uniform stipend ($400) paid at the beginning of their careers. Last year, the Navy announced the transition to the NWU Type III from the NWU Type I as the Navy’s primary working uniform. Sailors can wear either the NWU Type I or NWU Type III until Sept. 30, 2019, at the discretion of the unit commander or commanding officer (CO). The NWU Type III becomes the Navy’s primary shore working uniform Oct. 1, 2019. The NWU Type III is intended for wear ashore, in port and in environments that do not require special clothing (e.g., at sea, forward deployed during combat operations, areas requiring flame resistant uniforms) and when authorized as the uniform of the day. The NWU Type III may also be worn at sea for special events at the discretion of the CO. For complete information on wear rules and rollout plan see NavAdmin 214/17 at www.npc. navy.mil.

NASWF strong in the wake of Hurricane Irma Story, photo by Jamie Link NASWF Public Affairs Office

H

urricane Irma came barreling at Florida as a Category 5 storm, having been identified as one of the strongest storms in history and a threat to Navy assets across the state. Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) prepared for Hurricane Irma’s arrival last week with the implementation of procedures that protect base personnel and their families along with the safeguarding of Navy facilities and aircraft. As the U.S. military ordered more than 5,000 personnel on a mandatory evacuation in South Florida, NASWF climbed slowly up the Conditions of Readiness (COR) from “COR FIVE” to “COR THREE” (modified) prior to predicted local impact. The NAS Whiting Field emergency management team worked to keep current information accessible for base leadership and the base population. Navy personnel and their families were encouraged to update emergency contact information on the Navy Family and AcSystem countability

(NFAAS). Personnel were also encouraged to have a travel and communication plan. Additionally information about emergency supply kits and water storage was distributed. Another important aspect of storm preparedness was ensuring important documents were gathered, protected, and accessible. “Hurricane Irma is a Naval Air Station Whiting Field personnel attend a weather brief Sept. 7 in the NASWF Emergency Operations major storm, with poten- Center to prepare for Hurricane Irma. tial catastrophic impact.
