Hydrate: It’s hot as blazes out there ... Whether you are deployed, in port or off duty, personnel must be mindful of the risk of heat
stroke and other heat-related illness at all times. Remember to always drink plenty of different fluids throughout the day and take breaks when working in the heat. If something does not seem right, take a break, and seek medical attention if your condition does not improve. Look out for early signs of heat stress and recognize the signs of other heat-related illness in others. Knowing the signs and symptoms of heat illnesses, and taking precautions to avoid them will help “beat the heat” and could potentially save a life. – Naval Safety Center Public Affairs

Galley receives accreditation, Ney Award nomination Story, photo by Greg Mitchell Naval Air Station Pensacola Public Affairs
Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola’s Jet Port Cafe dining facility was awarded five-star accreditation during the 2019 assessment cycle for maintaining the highest level in Navy food service Aug. 2. The five-star accreditation recognizes overall food service excellence by evaluating key areas in customer service, cleanliness and management. An independent team reviewed food preparation, management, administration, equipment safety, sanitation, plastic waste and disposal at each competing facility. With the five-star accreditation, the galley will now compete for the Captain Edward F. Ney Award for food service excellence, which is given to the best U.S. Navy galleys among those that earn a five-star rating from a Navy evaluation team. “There are only four ashore
galleys in the Navy competing for the Ney award, and being in that type of company means that we are consistently maintaining the highest food service standards and providing the best customer and food service support to our customers,” Paul Poling, NAS Pensacola food service officer said. “Being the top galley in the region means that the efforts of the entire galley staff were recognized by senior leadership. No one person wins the Ney for the operation. It takes the entire galley team to ensure that every day the service is consistently outstanding.” To achieve the five-star accreditation a facility needs to receive at least 790 points out of a possible 820 from the food management inspectors. This year’s award marks the 15th consecutive selection for Jet Port Cafe. Once a five-star accreditation is awarded, it will be retained for one year, though Navy dining facilities need to be ready at all times, due to the reality that inspection teams do

not announce when they are coming. “The award is based on strict criteria regarding the overall quality of food service management from food preparation, storage, recordkeeping, inventory practices, financial accountability, training, facility structure and
promotion of healthy eating programs,” Poling said. “We have a warehouse department, a records department and a training department that all have to work in concert with the food preparation area. If everyone is not working as one team, it shows.” Established in 1958 by
the Secretary of the Navy, the Ney Memorial Awards program is co-sponsored by the International Food Service Executives Association to encourage and recognize excellence in Navy Food Service programs. See Galley on page 2
CIWT to host Council on Occupational Education accreditation team in September By Glenn Sircy Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs
The Council on Occupational Education (COE) is scheduled to conduct a reaffirmation of accreditation site visit to the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola Corry Station Sept. 23 to 27. COE, a nationally recognized accrediting agency, is a nonprofit voluntary membership organization
serving postsecondary education and training institutions, centers and similar entities interested in the improvement of the workforce. Initially accredited with COE in 1975, CIWT was last reaffirmed in 2013 and has undergone self-studies and subsequent site visits by COE about every six years. The purpose of this visit is to assess CIWT headquarters, its four commands, two detachments, and nine learning sites as an accredited institution using the standards and criteria established by COE.

Navy releases hemp policy From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs
WASHINGTON (NNS) – Department of the Navy continues to direct Sailors and Marines not to use hempderived products in a message released Aug. 7. ALNAV 057/19 references and reiterates current Department of Navy (DoN) policy (SE C NAV I N ST 5 3 0 0 . 2 8 F ) regarding substance abuse, and it establishes the prohibition of use, ingestion, consumption or application of cannabinoid formulations made or derived from hemp or marijuana. On Dec. 20, 2018, President Donald J. Trump signed into law the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, commonly known as the “2018
Farm Bill.” This includes legislation allowing hemp cultivation and the transfer of hemp-derived products across state lines. The legislation defines hemp as a cannabis plant that contains no more than 0.3 percent of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical compound in cannabis associated with psychoactive effects. With the passage of this legislation, hempderived products, including cannabidiol (CBD), have become widely available. Navy policy has not been affected by the passage of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, and all products derived from hemp or marijuana are still prohibited. See Hemp on page 2

NETSAFA holds change of command Story, photo by Dustin Gautney Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs
Capt. David W. Stallworth relieved Capt. Mark Truluck as commanding officer of Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) during a change of command ceremony onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola Aug. 9. While leading NETSAFA, Truluck continuously reshaped his command for the constantly changing international education and training landscape. Under his leadership, NETSAFA supported the training of 25,000 international students from more than 160 countries. “It has been an honor to lead this organization,” Truluck said. “It is the truly

hardworking professionals who make up the NETSAFA team that makes this organization what it is.” Truluck also retired during the ceremony after 30 years of service. “A lot of people ask how you can serve 30 years,” Truluck
said. “And the answer is really a credit to the great support from the community around you; family, friends and coworkers that truly believe what our nation stands for.” Upon relieving Truluck, Stallworth became the 15th commanding officer of
NETSAFA. “I look forward to the NETSAFA mission,” Stallworth said. “During my short time here, I have already been able to see the pride, importance and the impact of the mission and look forward to being part of the continued growth of the command. A native of Summerdale, Alabama, Stallworth graduated from Florida State University in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management and a master’s degree in Education in 1994. He was commissioned through Officer Candidate School at NAS Pensacola and after completing primary flight training was designated a naval aviator in 1997. He holds a second master’s degree in Military Operational Art and Science through the Air Command and Staff College. Stallworth’s follow-on tours
include Carrier Strike Group 2 as air operations officer and current operations officer; Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division as the Test and Evaluation Aviation Unit officer in charge and then executive officer. Stallworth additionally led a Forward Deployed Naval Forces unit located in Sasebo, Japan, as a volunteer to fill the gapped billet of the deputy commodore for a 12-month unaccompanied tour. There, he assisted in managing operations for surface, air and explosive ordnance disposal mine countermeasures assets in the Pacific area of responsibility, as well as immediate superior in command duties for four western Pacific, forwarddeployed mine warfare ships.

Galley from page 1 “The five-star award showed off our hard work as a whole; our skillset as foodservice professionals,” Culinary Specialist Submarine Second Class Petty Officer Lynell McPherson, Jet Cafe Leading Petty Officer said. “To be the largest galley in the Southeast Region and to perform at this level is amazing to me. Not only are we the largest, we are the best and now we are up for the Ney Award to prove it. This is all attributed to the efforts of our entire team; from those in the front serving, to those in the back preparing, to include our supply team and our administrative efforts.” CIWT COE from page 1 received from CIWT is equal to what is offered at colleges and universities throughout the world.” The process covers training throughout the CIWT domain, which trains approximately 21,000 students annually at its various training locations located throughout the continental United States, Hawaii and Japan. COE requires all organizations to conduct a self-study before the team visit, and there are 10 standards organizations must meet to be accredited through COE. The selfstudy allows the organization a process to meet those standards and prepare documentation.

While currently deemed legal for civilians in some states, all hemp and CBD products are strictly prohibited for use by Sailors. Commercially-available hemp products, including CBD, have not been inspected by the FDA and therefore have not been proven to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any illness. Some of these products do not list all ingredients, making it impossible to know definitively how much CBD, THC or other synthetic cannabinoids they may contain. Use, which is defined as oral ingestion, intravenous use, smoking/vaporization or any other method through which hemp-derived products may enter the body, could expose the user to THC. It is possible to test positive for THC on a urinalysis by using a CBD or hemp product. It can be impossible to determine where a CBD or hemp product was manufactured and what level of THC it may contain. Even trace amounts of THC can accumulate in the body and be detected in a urinalysis screening. Sailors who test positive for THC or other controlled substances for which they have no valid prescription are subject to mandatory administrative processing and could receive a discharge characterized as “Other Than Honorable” (OTH), which can affect future veteran’s benefits and employment opportunities. Additionally, the Navy reports unlawful drug users to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for inclusion in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), which could impact the ability to purchase firearms or ammunition in the future. It is the responsibility of every Sailor to ensure that he or she is diligent in avoiding intentional or accidental exposure to THC and other prohibited substances. Information about Navy drug detection and deterrence as well as Navy policy on hemp and CBD products can be found at www.ddd.navy.mil.
CIWT completed its extensive self-study outlining adherence to the prescribed standards of curriculum and instructional quality, and the on-site COE team will now visit to evaluate and complete the reaffirmation of accreditation. The visiting COE team will also rely on personnel interviews, observations of conditions and practices, and other essential documentation to determine if CIWT is in compliance with the standards and criteria required for accreditation. “The process of self-study afforded CIWT a unique opportunity to conduct an in-depth analysis of the training and infrastructure that supports our mission to deliver trained information warfare professionals to the Navy

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.

Who runs the world: Ronald Reagan conducts RAS with all-female rig team Story, photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Tyra M. Campbell USS Ronald Reagan Public Affairs PHILIPPINE SEA (NNS) – Twenty-one female Sailors assigned to the Navy’s forwarddeployed aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan’s (CVN 76) Deck Department formed the first all-female underway replenishment (UNREP) rig team during a replenishment-atsea (RAS) detail with Military Sealift Command’s dry cargo and ammunition ship USNS Walter S. Diehl (T-AO 193) August 1. The all-women team is the first in Ronald Reagan’s history. Senior Chief Boatswain’s Mate Matthew Ross, Deck Department’s leading chief petty officer, was the leading force in making the all-women crew a reality. “We have all the pieces in place to make this happen, so why not?” Ross, a Eagle, Idaho, native, said. “I’ve got a lot of talented female Sailors – some that have been here for four or more years and others that have been here for only a few months. I don’t really think Sailors or people think of this as a big deal, but it really is.” In order to appreciate the present, Sailors must look at the past and the immense progression Navy women have made. “I think a lot of us Sailors take our current jobs and work
Sailors assigned to the Navy’s forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) handle line during a replenishment-at-sea with the Military Sealift Command’s fleet replenishment oiler USNS Walter S. Diehl (T-AO 193). Twenty-one Sailors assigned to Deck Department formed the first all-female underway replenishment rig team in the ship’s history.

environment for granted,” Ross said. “Look how far we have come as an organization. The year 1995 was when women were first allowed on ships. It was nothing like it is now. It was just a few ships where women could work or maybe there was only a few women on the ship. Now my department is 30 to 40 percent female.” Mathematically, there should not be enough female Sailors in Reagan’s Deck Department to be able to man a full aircraft carrier’s rigging team. Female Sailors make up 20 percent of the Navy according to U.S. Navy demographic data from Jan. 1 this year. “This is the most females we have ever had and I’ve been
here since August of 2015,” Boatswain’s Mate 2nd Class Daishea Boland, from St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, said. “To be able to man this team with such strong women was not easy and it’s an extremely special opportunity to be a part of this.” The positions of the team include: the UNREP safety officer, who oversees the station’s safety throughout the evolution; the rig captain, responsible for all personnel working on station and the successful completion of the evolution; the riggers who hookup the mechanism that sends the cargo back and forth; the signalman, who uses two signal paddles to send and receive messages; the sliding padeye and gypsy winch operators, who
operate essential equipment that sends the rig back and forth and lowers cargo to the deck; phone talkers, who use sound-powered headsets to communicate; and line handlers, who haul on the line to assemble the rig. Boatswain’s mates are typically viewed as tough, gritty, masculine workers among the deck plates. A female boatswain’s mate obviously contradicts many of those stereotypes. “Females in Deck Department – we’re used to being singled out and being different,” Boatswain Mate 2nd Class Claire Schwalbach, from Versailles, Kentucky, said. “It’s no surprise to me how we banded together and were able to do this successfully on our own regardless of the obstacles before us.” This particular evolution was special to the Sailors involved and another opportunity to break down stereotypes of females not being able to work as effectively as their male counterparts. “I wanted to show everyone, ‘look what Reagan is doing,’ ” Ross said. “ ‘Look what deck is doing.’ We are giving females the spotlight to show the Navy and whoever else that this rig team is just as good and just as capable as anyone else’s team out there.” Birmingham, Alabama’s Boatswain’s Mate 1st Class Keneeka Linn is Reagan’s only Boatswain’s Mate 1st Class and was the safety observer during
the evolution. “At the end of the day, it really wasn’t about gender,” Linn said. “It’s what we chose to do and we did it successfully as a team.” At approximately 0930, the 21 Sailors safely rigged the station and sent the first load of cargo to the Walter S. Diehl. Following the first round of cargo, the team quickly eased into a rhythmic operation. After a three-hour evolution, the all-female crew successfully sent and recovered 100 pallets of food, mail and retrograde material. Few vessels have given their Sailors the chance for these advanced qualifications and trained them to take the mantel Ross said. “This is not male versus female. They are not special,” she said. “Everyone can do everything in this department, but you do have to give everyone a chance, regardless of sex, race, or religious orientation. None of that stuff matters. What matters is doing our job and doing it right.” Ronald Reagan, the flagship of Carrier Strike Group 5, provides a combat-ready force that protects and defends the collective maritime interests of its allies and partners in the IndoPacific region.

First female F-35B pilot trained at NAS Pensacola Story by Sgt. Brittney Vella Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort
.S. Marine Capt. Anneliese Satz left her legacy on the Marine Corps’ F-35B Program when she became the first female Marine to complete the F-35B Basic Course June 27. Flying is nothing new to Satz – prior to joining the Marine Corps she earned her commercial pilots license flying a Robinson R44 Helicopter which she attributes to preparing her for a career in military aviation. During the last four years, Satz, 29, has completed Aviation Pre-flight Indoctrination in Pensacola; Primary Flight Training in Corpus Christi, Texas, where she learned to fly the T-6 Texan II; then to Meridian, Mississippi, where she flew the T-45C Goshawk advanced jet training aircraft. Upon completing her initial trainings,
she was assigned to Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501, the “Warlords,” to train on her assigned fleet aircraft: the F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter, the world’s first supersonic STOVL stealth aircraft. It’s designed to operate from austere, shortfield bases and a range of aircapable ships operating near front-line combat zones. “At each of my training schools I did my best,” Satz, a Boise, Idaho native said. “I truly believe that showing up prepared and working diligently are two major keys to success.” After arriving to MCAS Beaufort in July of 2018, she

took her first flight in the F-35B in October that year. “The first flight in an F-35 is by yourself,” she said. “The syllabus thoroughly prepares you for that first time you take off and for every flight after that, it’s an exhilarating experience.” During her four years of training, Satz earned more than 300 flight hours, spent a significant amount of time
practicing in simulators while also studying for written and practical application exams; and although training and learning never stops, she will now be assigned to her first operational unit, Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121, the Green Knights in Iwakuni, Japan. “I’m very grateful for the instructors, the maintainers, and countless others at 501 who
lent me their expertise and time while I was going through the syllabus,” Satz said. “This is a phenomenal program made possible by all of their hard work. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to learn from all of them. I am incredibly excited to get to VMFA-121 and look forward to the opportunity to serve in the Fleet Marine Forces.”
More Sailor-friendly options for PCS moves From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs
MILLINGTON, Tennessee (NNS) – Navy Personnel Command (NPC) leaders announced recently that they are expanding options and capabilities offered to further improve the Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move experience for Sailors and their families. This comes only a few weeks after the release of MyPCS Mobile and more capabilities are expected in the near future. As part of the Navy’s ongoing pay and personnel transformation efforts, NAVADMIN 184/19 announces a new pilot program in which participating Sailors can use the Government Travel Charge Card (GTCC) for PCS move travel expenses. The initial pilot population includes active duty Sailors who are existing GTCC cardholders, executing CONUS-to-CONUS moves with less than 30 days of combined travel and Temporary Duty under Instruction, and who are single or traveling with accompanied dependents. “We are providing Sailors with more choice and control during the PCS move process by providing them with the option to use their GTCC for PCSrelated travel expenses,” Rear Adm. Jeff Hughes, NPC commander said. “We want Sailors to have the funds necessary to support their move readily available either through use of a requested electronic funds transfer/direct deposit (EFT/DD) travel advance or by using the GTCC,” Hughes said. “It’s their choice based on what works best for their particular situation.” Participating Sailors may now choose to use either the GTCC or request an EFT/DD travel advance to support move related costs; however, both may not be used simultaneously. Sailors who elect to participate in the pilot program may use the GTCC for temporary lodging at their

old or new permanent duty station, fuel for privately owned vehicles (POVs) used as part of PCS travel, and for lodging and meals en route to their new duty station. Additionally, if the Sailor is entitled, the GTCC may be used for Dislocation Allowance (DLA) related expenses normally associated with the establishment of a new household. This pilot period allows us time to evaluate the rollout through all phases of the PCS process, receive feedback from participating Sailors and commands, and fix any unknown issues prior to expansion to the widest possible population of Sailors in the near future. Additionally, NAVADMIN 183/19 announces the release of Lean Orders and a PCS Entitlements Calculator. Lean orders is a streamlined, simplified,
and plain language orders format, providing a Sailor and family everything they need to know to execute a move on a few screens on a mobile device. Lean Orders and the full text orders will both be available in MyPCS Mobile and on MyNavy Portal (MNP). A PCS Entitlements Calculator will also be available to provide Sailors a tool to easily determine their PCS travel entitlements. The intent is for a Sailor and their Command Pay and Personnel Administrator (CPPA) to use this tool during the initial PCS planning phase, which may influence what options the Sailor may pursue regarding advances or card use. It is also useful when a Sailor fills out their travel claim at their new permanent duty station to ensure the claim disbursement is the correct amount. “Simplifying the PCS process for Sailors is a priority area of effort within the MyNavy HR Transformation effort,” Ann Stewart, director, NPC Pay and Personnel Management Department said. “All of these new services are a direct result of what we are hearing from Sailors and their families during numerous fleet engagements. We’re listening and rapidly improving processes and fielding capabilities to best resource our Sailors and reduce the administrative burden on them, so they can focus on readiness, lethality and improving their life/work balance.” It is vital that Sailors work with their CPPA and GTCC Agency Program Coordinator when pursuing available options for their PCS move planning and execution. The MyNavy Career Center (MNCC) Contact Center is also a 24/7 option and may be contacted via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (833) 330-MNCC (6622).

SOCOM commander emphasizes character to new SEALs By Jim Garamone
he legendary toughness of the Navy’s SEAL teams was on display as the general in charge of U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) addressed the 57 sailors graduating from SEAL Qualification Training Class 322 in Coronado, California. SOCOM Commander Army Gen. Richard Clarke opened his Aug. 2 address noting he felt fortunate to be addressing the graduating class. “I am glad to break the streak as the first U.S. Army officer and the first U.S. Army Ranger to preside over a (SEAL qualification) graduation,” Clarke said. The class began training 15 months ago with 157 students. The physical and mental challenges the sailors faced whittled down the numbers and polished those who made it through to graduation. “For each of you preparing to walk across this stage, it is an almost indescribable achievement,” Clarke said. The new SEALs are a diverse group, hailing from 21 different states, the general said, telling the graduates the only thing they shared when the training
began “was a desire to test yourselves, to experience a unique challenge, to be part of something bigger than yourselves and to put the needs of the nation ahead of your own.” Clarke noted the new SEALs have charged through the surf many times in the past 15 months of training, but the next time they do it, it will be different – it will be as members of operational units. “Right now, around the globe, Navy SEALs – your teammates – are hard at work,” Clarke said. “SEALs have – and will continue to play – an active and vital role in our national security efforts.” SEALs continue to quietly and professionally set the conditions for their fellow service members to deter, disrupt and defeat any adversary, the general said. “You can be sure that we

will continue to ask our SEALs to accept the most difficult missions,” he said. “This will challenge you in ways you cannot anticipate, and you need to be ready now.” That these missions will require physical and technical competence is a given. But they will also require the SEALs to demonstrate character, the general told the graduates. “The themes of trust and of teamwork have been a large part of your training,” Clarke said. “Across the (Special Operations Command) enterprise, trust is our currency with the American people. It’s a powerful but

fragile credibility that each of us must guard fiercely.” The new SEALs are now part of this greater team of special operators who “share a common commitment to protect the American people, our prosperity and, most important, our way of life,” Clarke said. “The American people trust that you – that we – will take on these challenges,” he added. “That we will not only win, but win with honor (and) with your values intact.

service, with SOCOM and with the nation.” Clarke said the new SEALs will have lives in their hands, and that how they respond will affect their fellow citizens. Graduating from the SEAL Qualification Course is the first step. “We count your success here as assurance of your courage, your competence and, most of all, your character. I know that all of you are sufficient for the task,” he said. The next time they have to wade into cold waters, Clarke said, he wants them to “wade into the unknown boldly, and keep your hands steady.”

Training Squadron Two, ‘Doerbirds,’ changes hands during aerial ceremony By Ens. Aaron Ahlgrimm, VT-2 and Julie Ziegenhorn, NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Officer
mdr. Wesley Barnes, U.S. Navy, relieved Capt. Mark Jackson, U.S. Coast Guard, as the 56th commanding officer of the “Doerbirds,” Training Squadron Two (VT-2) in a unique ceremony onboard Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Aug. 9. In the aerial change of command flying the T-6B Texan aircraft, Jackson handed the reins of the squadron over the aircraft radio to Barnes. Three aircraft, one with Barnes and a second pilot, one with Jackson and another pilot, and one aircraft with the deputy commodore of Training Air Wing Five (TW-5), Col. Jeffrey Pavelko, who acted as the officiating officer, flew in a threeship formation. During the flight, Barnes stated he was ready to relieve Jackson as commanding officer. Jackson then read his order over the airways, “I stand relieved,” and banked his aircraft out of the formation. As their lead officiating officer, Pavelko acknowledged the turnover in the air. Directly after landing the T-6B aircraft, the officers completed the ceremony in a hangar on the installation with commodore, TW-5, Capt. Doug Rosa presiding. Rosa congratulated both officers in a speech before an audience of more than a hundred people including family, friends and “Doerbird” instructors and student pilots. He also presented
Jackson with a meritorious service medal for his accomplishments leading the squadron. Jackson, a fleet HH-65 Dolphin pilot, assumed command of VT-2 June 15, 2018. During his time as commanding officer, Jackson’s standard of excellence led the Doerbirds to fly more than 43,500 mishap-free flight hours, highlighting the squadron’s safety-first culture that makes them one of the leading squadrons in the Naval Air Training Command (CNATRA). Barnes is taking command of the squadron after having served as the executive officer. “I’m honored and humbled for the opportunity to lead such a fine group of men and women at VT- 2,” Barnes commented. “For almost two years, I’ve been blessed to be part of this outstanding organization, and I look forward to the next 15 months serving as their commanding officer.” A native of Paris, Tennessee, Barnes graduated from Middle Tennessee State University where he majored in plant and soil science. After graduating, he enrolled in Officer Candidate School where he was commissioned an ensign
in September 2001. He reported for flight training in Pensacola, earning his aviator wings in January 2003. After successfully completing initial training at Helicopter Anti-submarine Squadron 10 (HS-10) in 2003, CDR Barnes reported to the HS-7 “Dusty Dogs” in Jacksonville, Florida for his first operational flying tour. He deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom onboard the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75). Following a successful tour as a fleet replacement squadron instructor with HSC-2, Barnes reported to the USS Denver (LPD 10) forward-deployed in Sasebo, Japan, as the ship’s air boss and safety officer. During his tour with HSC-2, Barnes earned his executive master’s degree in business administration. Barnes returned to Norfolk, Va., in December 2011, where

he served as the administration officer and operations officer with the “Nightdippers” of HS5. He deployed twice in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) onboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) during these two years. In January 2014, Barnes was assigned to the Joint Staff Hampton Roads, J-35S Global Force Management, as a training and aviation joint working group lead, as well as the Secretary of Defense Orders Book Writer. During this tour, he attended the Joint Forces Staff College and earned Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) Phase I/II credit. Narrating the ceremony, Cmdr. Edward Ahlstrand, U.S. Coast Guard, also assumed the duties as executive officer of VT-2. Serving alongside Barnes as executive officer, Ahlstrand,
brings a fresh perspective to the flight line for the Doerbirds. Ahlstrand’s experience flying the HC-130H Hercules, as well as his time serving as military aide to the Secretary, Department of Homeland Security in Washington D.C., will prove invaluable in this training climate. Barnes and Ahlstrand are expected to continue to further advance the elite distinction that has been synonymous with Naval Air Training Command throughout its history. Their depth of experience, coupled with their shared vision of success will greatly benefit future VT-2 students and promote the reputation and capability of naval aviation as a whole.

September is Emergency Preparedness Month
In September, remember: Have a plan From www.ready.gov
ational Preparedness Month (NPM), recognized each September, provides an opportunity to remind us that we all must prepare ourselves and our families now and throughout the year. This NPM will focus on planning, with an overarching theme: Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How. Take time to learn lifesaving skills − such as CPR and first aid, check your insurance policies and coverage for the hazards you may face, such as flood, earthquakes and tornados. Make sure to consider the costs associated with disasters and save for an emergency. Also, know how to take practical safety steps like shutting off water and gas. The devastating hurricanes and wildfires last year reminded the nation of the importance of preparing for disasters. Often, we will be the first ones in our communities to take action after a disaster strikes and before first responders arrive, so it is important to prepare in advance to help yourself and your community. Hurricanes: Hurricanes are massive storm systems that form over warm ocean waters and move toward land. Potential threats from hurricanes include powerful winds, heavy rainfall, storm surges, coastal and inland flooding, rip currents, tornadoes and landslides. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. • Can happen along any U.S. coast or in any territory in the Atlantic or Pacific oceans. • Can affect areas more than 100 miles inland. • Are most active in September. • If you are under a hurricane warning, find safe shelter right away. • Determine how best to protect yourself from high winds and flooding. • Evacuate if told to do so. • Take refuge in a designated storm shelter, or an interior room for high winds. • Listen for emergency information and alerts. • Only use generators outdoors
and away from windows. • “Turn Around, Don’t Drown!” Do not walk, swim or drive through flood waters. • Know your area’s risk of hurricanes. • Sign up for your community’s warning system. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio also provide emergency alerts. • If you are at risk for flash flooding, watch for warning signs such as heavy rain. • Practice going to a safe shelter for high winds, such as a FEMA safe room or ICC 500 storm shelter. The next-best protection is a small, interior, windowless room in a sturdy building on the lowest level that is not subject to flooding. • Based on your location and community plans, make your own plans for evacuation or sheltering in place. • Become familiar with your evacuation zone, the evacuation route and shelter locations. • Gather needed supplies for at least three days. Keep in mind each person’s specific needs, including medication. Do not forget the needs of pets. • Keep important documents in a safe place or create passwordprotected digital copies. • Protect your property. Declutter drains and gutters. Install check valves in plumbing to prevent backups. Consider hurricane shutters. Review insurance policies. When a hurricane is 36 hours from arriving: • Turn on your TV or radio in order to get the latest weather updates and emergency instructions. • Re-stock your emergency preparedness kit. Include food
Word Search: ‘Taking care’
Floridians know well the dangers hurricane season can bring. The risk peaks in September; be ready now. More resources can be found online at https://www.ready.gov/hurricanes.
and water sufficient for at least three days, medications, a flashlight, batteries, cash and first aid supplies. • Plan how to communicate with family members if you lose power. For example, you can call, text, e-mail or use social media. Remember that during disasters, sending text messages is usually reliable and faster than making phone calls because phone lines are often overloaded. • Review your evacuation zone, evacuation route and shelter locations. Plan with your family. You may have to leave quickly so plan ahead. • Keep your car in good working condition, and keep the gas tank full; stock your vehicle with emergency supplies and a change of clothes. When a hurricane is 18 to 36 hours from arriving: • Bookmark your city or
county website for quick access to storm updates and emergency instructions. • Bring loose, lightweight objects inside that could become projectiles in high winds (e.g., patio furniture, garbage cans); anchor objects that would be unsafe to bring inside (e.g., propane tanks) and trim or remove trees close enough to fall on the building. • Cover all of your home’s windows. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to board up windows with 5/8” exterior grade or marine plywood, cut to fit. When a hurricane is six to 18 hours from arriving: • Turn on your TV/radio, or check your city/county website every 30 minutes in order to get the latest weather updates and emergency instructions.
Gosling Games Color Me: ‘Smart cats plan’
• Charge your cell phone now so you will have a full battery in case you lose power. When a hurricane is six hours from arriving: • If you are not in an area that is recommended for evacuation, plan to stay at home or where you are and let friends and family know where you are. • Close storm shutters, and stay away from windows. Flying glass from broken windows could injure you. • Turn your refrigerator or freezer to the coldest setting and open only when necessary. If you lose power, food will last longer. • Continue to monitor your TV/ radio every 30 minutes in order to get the latest weather updates and emergency instructions. Be safe AFTER: • Listen to authorities for information and special instructions. • Be careful during clean-up. Wear protective clothing and work with someone else. • Do not touch electrical equipment if it is wet or if you are standing in water. If it is safe to do so, turn off electricity at the main breaker or fuse box to prevent electric shock. • Avoid wading in flood water, which can contain dangerous debris. Underground or downed power lines can also electrically charge the water. • Save phone calls for emergencies. Phone systems are often down or busy after a disaster. Use text messages or social media to communicate with family and friends. • Document any property damage with photographs. Contact your insurance company for assistance.

Jokes & Groaners In case of emergency ‘jokes’
A man rushed into the doctor’s office and shouted, “Doctor, I think I’m shrinking!” The doctor calmly responded, “Now settle down. You’ll just have to be a little patient.” A man rushed his son to the emergency room after the boy swallowed two quarters. A nurse came into the room to check on him. The man asked her, “Nurse, is there any news?” She turned as she was leaving the room and answered, “Sorry, there’s no change.” Three doctors are riding in a car together when the car gets a flat tire. They all get out and look at the tire. The first doctor said,“It looks flat.” The second doctor feels the tire and said, “It feels flat.” The third doctor said, “I hear a hissing noise.” Together in agreement, they all nodded their heads.“We’d better run some tests.”

Pensacola native keeps the Navy’s newest, most advanced helicopters flying By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Amanda Rae Moreno Navy Office of Community Outreach
AYPORT, Florida – A 2014 J.M. Tate High School graduate and Pensacola native is serving with a U.S. Navy helicopter squadron that flies the Navy’s newest and most technologicallyadvanced helicopter. Petty Officer 2nd Class Joanna Ozburn credits much of their success from lessons they learned growing up in Pensacola. “I learned that I am never alone and to never give up,” Ozburn said. Ozburn is an aviation maintenance administrationman with the “Airwolves” of Helicopter Maritime
Strike Squadron 40, a Mayport, Florida based squadron that operates the Navy’s next generation submarine hunter and Anti-Surface Warfare helicopter, the MH-60R Seahawk. Each helicopter is nearly 65 feet long, may weigh up to 23,500 lbs. (max gross) and can travel more than 120 miles per hour for

nearly 320 miles on a tank of gas. As an aviation m a i n t e n a n c e administrationman, Ozburn is responsible for clerical, administrative, and managerial duties for the squadron.
According to Navy officials, the MH-60R is the most capable multi-mission helicopter available in the world today. It is used for a variety of missions, including hunting and tracking enemy
submarines, attacking enemy ships, search and rescue, drug interdiction, delivering supplies and supporting the Navy’s special operations forces. It is replacing the Navy’s older helicopters because of its greater versatility and more advanced weapon systems. Ozburn is now a part of a long-standing tradition of serving in the Navy our nation needs. “My brother served in the Air Force, my dad in the Navy, my uncle Army and my other brother served in the Marines,” Ozburn said. “It’s definitely a big part of my family.” Ozburn said they are proud to be part of a warfighting team that readily defends America at all times. “Watching junior Sailors develop into become great leaders is incredibly satisfying,” Ozburn said. Sailors’ jobs are highly varied within the squadron. Approximately 297 Navy men and women are assigned and keep all parts of the squadron running smoothly. This includes everything from maintaining helicopter
airframes and engines, to processing paperwork, handling weapons and flying the aircraft. Ozburn is playing an important part in America’s focus on rebuilding military readiness, strengthening alliances and reforming business practices in support of the National Defense Strategy. “Our priorities center on people, capabilities and processes, and will be achieved by our focus on speed, value, results and partnerships,” Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer said. “Readiness, lethality and modernization are the requirements driving these priorities.” As a member of one of the U.S. Navy’s most relied upon capital assets, Ozburn and other sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes. Serving in the Navy, Ozburn is learning about being a more respectable leader, Sailor and person through handling numerous responsibilities. “The Navy is a big family. They always have your back through thick and thin, no matter the situation,” Ozburn said.

Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victims to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/ or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 2934561.

Stamped Film Festival
From the Stamped Film Festival Another tradition of Pensacola is coming back in force. The 2019 Stamped Film Festival will be hosted at the Pensacola Little Theatre Aug. 22 through 25. This festival showcases local LGBT films over the fourday event. The current roster of films showing at the festival is available to preview at https:// stampedfilmfest.com. Stamped Film Festival, Pensacola’s LGBTQ Film Festival was inspired by efforts of the LGBTQ community in the mid-1990s to highlight the impact of LGBTQ tourism. After some local officials and business owners spoke out against gay and lesbian
visitors, including the annual Memorial Day Weekend activities which draws tens of thousands of people to the area, many LGBTQ residents and visitors began to stamp the cash they spent with the words “GAY MONEY” and/or a pink triangle. That year, Christopher Street South, a local LGBTQ publication, estimated that gay and lesbian tourists spent $25 million annually in the area. The festival aims to bring a vibrant cultural experience to Pensacola and the surrounding area by using the unique expression of films with specific focus on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community to foster awareness, inclusion and
diversity. Through incremental growth, Stamped Film Festival aims to become a leading presence promoting awareness, inclusion and diversity throughout the Gulf Coast region. This will include multiple film-oriented events throughout the year in addition to the annual multi-day festival. All events, including the festival, would remain free of charge and open to all. Stamped Film Festival was spearheaded in 2012 by Sara Latshaw as a means to create a more accepting, safe, and educated community in our small Gulf Coast town of Pensacola. The film festival board and organization has continued to grow over the years with an increased attendance at the annual film festival and by hosting other outreach activities. Stamped showcases the artistic contribution of LGBTQ film and filmmakers from all over the world. In 2015 the film festival re-branded itself from Pensacola LGBTQ Film Fest to “Stamped Film Festival,” a name paying homage to the days when Memorial Day Weekend LGBTQ tourists stamped their money to demonstrate their significant impact on the local economy. Likewise, Stamped hopes to continue the tradition of raising awareness of the LGBTQ community. For more information, visit https://stampedfilmfest.com.
