NAS Pensacola traffic pattern shift ... Contruction contractors are preparing for the next phase of work in the outbound lane at NASP’s west gate. Work in these lanes will start Sept. 28. Barrels and signs will be placed the evening of Sept. 27 after the gate has closed. The barrels will start just before the curve approaching the outbound lane. Traffic will reduce to one lane gradually and cross over at the break in the median. Once they get through the gate they will be moved back to the outbound lane utilizing the new rejection lane. The entry lane on the left will be closed and have traffic merge just after the existing slide gate. All cars will utilize the left lane and trucks will use the right lane.

GMT domestic violence awareness app available for mobile devices By Lt.j.g. Andrew DeGarmo NETC PAO

A new application for mobile devices to complete required Navy General Military Training (GMT) on domestic violence awareness is now available. Designed to provide Sailors with anytime, anywhere access to both training and resources about domestic violence (DV), the app is designed to be an additional GMT tool. “As mobile device technology is integrated into the military, we want to provide Sailors with information and training at their fingertips, as they are used to with their smartphones and tablets,” said Rear Adm. Mike White, commander of Naval Education and Training Command. “The app will allow leaders to quickly help Sailors who could potentially be in a crisis.” Targeted primarily for active-duty and

reserve service members requiring DV training, the app can also be used by civil service employees who manage military members, as well as a tool for Navy family members. Emergency contact information is also included in the app, including contact numbers for national suicide, sexual assault and domestic violence prevention agencies, including the American Red Cross. Website links are also available for the Military Crisis Line, domestic violence, national suicide and Safe helplines. “The idea of having an ‘all-in-one’ app is brilliant,” said Lt.j.g. Robbie Luers, human resource officer at NETC. “If I’m in a crisis situation, I’m probably not going to be thinking clearly, but the app is designed to provide me with the information I need, anytime or anywhere.”

An added bonus for individuals that attended the Pensacolaarea Navy chief petty officer (CPO) pinning ceremony at the Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Sept. 16 was a display of chief’s uniforms dating back to World War II. The uniform display is courtesy of a Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) civilian employee, In-

formation Assurance manager Carter Granat, a 27-year Department of Defense employee. Having a lifelong affinity with Navy and Marine Corps memorabilia, Granat has amassed a large collection. He said he was more than happy to have five of the uniforms he’s collected throughout the years used for display during what will be a pivotal moment in these new chiefs’ careers. “This is an enormous mile-

stone for these Sailors, to be selected for advancement to chief,” Granat said. “Although I’ve never served in the military, my respect and admiration for those who do is something I can’t even begin to describe. When I was approached about this year’s new chiefs using some of these historic uniforms for presentation

during their pinning ceremony, I was honored to contribute – they are the future of the enlisted Navy and if I can in some small way contribute to the monumental step they are taking, I’m more than happy to do so.” Granat loaned five chief petty officer uniforms to Pensacola-area pinning cere-

mony committee member ADC(AW) James Cunningham, training officer at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC). Included in the five was a very rare gray uniform that was only used by the Navy from 1943-1949. Cunningham said the uniforms – some of which are more than 75 years old – represent a look into the past for the

National Preparedness Month, week three: Hurricanes By NAS JRB New Orleans Emergency Management Department

Rain, wind, tornadoes and storm surge related to hurricanes cause change to natural environments, damage to the human-built environment and even loss of life. It is estimated that 10,000 people die each year worldwide due to hurricanes and tropical storms. The majority of human deaths are caused by flooding. Because of the danger, it is important to look for hurricane warnings and to evacuate if it is recommended in your area. “Do” list 1. If your chain of command or local government tells you to evacuate, get out.

2. Prepare family evacuation plan ahead of time. 3. Listen to local TV or radio stations for information. 4. If you cannot evacuate, take refuge in a small interior room, closet or hallway on the lowest level. 5. Stay alert for extended rainfall and subsequent flooding even after the hurricane or tropical storm has ended. Do not

be fooled by a lull in the storm and walk around outside. “Don’t” list 1. Do not wait until the last minute to buy supplies. Put together a hurricane kit. Have plenty of water, batteries, flashlights, candles, matches, dry and canned food, a can opener, a first aid kit, gasoline, a portable radio, and medications ready so when the time comes, you

Users can download the DV app from several app stores at no cost, and go through the training with the instructions provided. Service members can provide the app their DoD identification number from their CAC card and the app will then send a completion certificate to the Sailor’s Electronic Training Jacket (ETJ). The user will then be able to e-mail the certificate to their supervisor as verification of completion. Completions should be visible in the ETJ after two working days. “Apps for GMT are a natural extension of the apps the Navy has been working on for several years, starting with the eDivision Officer app,” said Bill Marvel, NETC GMT program manager. “As we prepare for Domestic Violence Awareness month in October, the app’s release will showcase the importance of having proper training and resources at everyone’s fingertips.” The U.S. Navy Sea Warrior Program (PMW 240) produced the app and Tracen Technologies Inc., a company that specializes in integrated mobile and web solutions, was the software developer.

CPO selectees. “For selectees about to be pinned, these are tangible links to the rich heritage that they are going to be a part of; a look at what their brothers wore during a time when the world was markedly different,” he said. The uniforms Granat loaned Cunningham were from the 1940s: CPO service dress blues; a working gray uniform; a service dress khaki uniform; service dress whites and a CPO aviation green uniform. He said his total collection includes numerous original uniforms, more than 3,000 Navy and Marine Corps unit patches and rockers and even a WWII-era ship’s hammock. “I’ve been working with the Navy since 1988 and my father was a World War II veteran,” Granat added. “When I started working for the Navy, I began to realize that some of the younger Sailors and Marines weren’t aware of some of the older historic uniforms and insignia and so I felt I could share some of

won’t be scrambling to get the necessities together. 2. Do not wait for leaks to start. Some of us know that we have trouble spots in our home. Don’t wait until leaks start – prepare now. 3. Don’t pack up your whole house in fear before evacuating. Secure the most precious and important items. Photos, albums, heirlooms, jewelry, any-

thing that cannot be replaced. 4. Don’t forget about outside. Anything can become a projectile. You would be surprised how much damage a lawn chair or even a small flower pot can do to a house or a car. Bring in as much as possible and secure the rest with robe or bungee cords. 5. Do not ignore mold. If you are a victim of flooding and have concerns about mold growth in your home, have a certified mold inspector in to test and assess the damage and give you options on how to fix it.

Help is available if you have trouble with acid reflux By Lt. Cmdr. Brett Lessmann Family Medicine resident, Naval Hospital Pensacola

A

cid reflux, or “heartburn,” affects many people, but there are ways to prevent or treat it.

When the acid that is normally in your stomach backs up into the esophagus, which is the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach, the result is acid reflux. Another term for acid reflux is gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. It is important to know the symptoms of GERD, which can include burning in the chest (heartburn), burning or an acid taste in the throat, stomach or chest pain, trouble swallowing, a raspy voice or sore throat or an unexplained cough. Acid reflux is one of the most common causes of cough and other symptoms may not even be present. Thankfully, there are effective ways to reduce heartburn without needing medications. Weight loss of just a few pounds, as well changing the angle you sleep at can help. Simply raising the head of the bed 6 to 8 inches by using blocks or a foam wedge under the mattress can have a positive effect on heartburn. It’s also a good idea to avoid

How to submit a commentary

foods that make heartburn symptoms worse such as coffee, chocolate, peppermint, cinnamon, citrus foods and juices, tomatoes and tomato products and fatty foods, especially within three hours prior to sleep. Alcohol consumption and smoking are also contributing factors to heartburn. Eating several small meals each day, rather than two or three big meals, can also help and avoid lying down for at least three hours after a meal. If these simple precautions don’t help and the GERD persists, there are medical treatments that can help. There are a few types of medicines that can relieve the symptoms of acid reflux such as antacids, surface acting agents, histamine blockers and proton pump inhibitors. All of these medicines work by either reducing or blocking stomach acid. Antacids and surface acting agents can relieve mild symptoms, but they work only for a short time. Histamine blockers

are stronger and last longer than antacids and surface acting agents. Both antacids and most histamine blockers can be bought without a prescription. Proton pump inhibitors are the most effective medicines in treating GERD. Some of these medicines are sold without a prescription, but there are more that your doctor or nurse prac-

titioner can prescribe. Many people can manage their acid reflux on their own by changing their habits or taking medications, but it is important to know when you should see your doctor. If your symptoms are severe or last a long time, you should schedule an appointment with your doctor or Medical Homeport Team. Vom-

iting blood or having irregular bowel movements are also reasons to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Acid reflux is common, but preventable. Proper health management and working with your doctor or Medical Homeport Team can produce positive results when battling this annoying disease.

NASP air show announced

Corrosion control Nov. 6-7 event to feature Blue Angels and other aerobatic performers course expands From NASP PAO From CNATT Public Affairs

The U.S. Navy’s single point of accountability for developing, delivering and supporting aviation technical training recently implemented the final phase of a five-year effort to streamline aircraft corrosion control courses. The Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT), after several business case analysis studies at CNATT units, began offering corrosion control training in August at CNATT Unit Detachment Atsugi, the last of five sites offering courses in what is a naval aviation mainstay. According to Joe Meehan, Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Center (NATEC) liaison to CNATT, the additional teaching sites will result in decreased training times and provide a significant improvement in corrosion control practices throughout the fleet. With the expansion of fleet corrosion training requirements, courses were taught through CNATTU Norfolk, Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and remotely by NATEC representatives. A significant backlog – sometimes approaching nine months – was noticed for service members needing the course. To address this issue, in 2010, NAVAIR and CNATT leadership investigated the possibilities of expanding the CNATTU Norfolk corrosion course to CNATTUs in Lemoore and Ocean. CNATT approved the proposal in 2012. Meehan added that with the success of those two initiatives, CNATT approved the expansion of the course to CNATTU Whidbey Island, Washington, and the CNATT Detachment in Atsugi, Japan. A decade ago, less than 150 students completed aircraft corrosion control courses in a calendar year. Today, almost 1,000 students finish the requisite coursework each year. For more news from Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training, visit www.navy.mil/local/cnatt/.

The Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will close the 2015 season at the annual Homecoming Air Show Nov. 6-7 aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. Prior to the performance by the Blue Angels F/A 18 Hornets, the Blues’ C-130 Hercules transport known as “Fat Albert” will demonstrate its short field take-off and lowlevel passes. Tentatively scheduled for both days will be aerobatics by performers such as Screamin’ Sasquatch-Jet Waco, a 1920s “Barnstormers” Taperwing body with a jet engine flown by John Klatt; the GEICO Skytypers, flying six vintage World War II aircraft in precision maneuvers; the Goodyear Extra 300SC flown by Michael Goulian; the Vertigo Air Shows Jet Glider, the world’s only jetlaunched sail plane, flown by Bob Carlton; and the yearly favorite Otto the Helicopter, performing stunts highly unusual for a helicopter, plus many more acts. Along with flying demonstrations, more than 50 military and civilian aircraft will be on display. These static displays will include a variety of aircraft ranging from the present-day, state-of-the-art fighters to aircraft from the 1930s.

The Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration team, prepare for take off Nov. 8 during the 2014 homecoming air show at Naval Air Station Pensacola. An estimated189,000 people turned out for the three-day event, which was part of the yearlong celebration for the 100th anniversary of NAS Pensacola. A practice run and two full shows at Forrest Sherman Field marked the first time the Blues have performed three times in the same location. Photo by Janet Thomas

Tentatively scheduled for viewing is an E-2 Hawkeye, airborne early warning platform; and a C-5 Galaxy, one of the largest heavy-lift military transport aircraft in the world. In addition to the scheduled Nov. 6 and Nov. 7 shows, there will be a special night show from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 6 only. Aircraft will light up the sky with full afterburner and pyrotechnics, and the show will end with one of the largest fireworks shows in

the Pensacola area. Admission and parking for all shows is free. Areas will be reserved for the physically challenged. Food and memorabilia will be available at numerous concession stands. Pets and coolers are not permitted. Security personnel and signs will direct spectators to parking areas near the show site. For more information on the show and reserved seating, go to http://www.nasp airshow.com.

Demonstration to showcase AUVs By NSWC Panama City Division PAO

Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Panama City Division personnel are scheduled to participate in a two-week U.S. Navy’s emerging autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) demonstration at Naval Air Station Patuxent River (NAS PAX) Sept. 12-25. The event, PAX River 2015, is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and will bring together 150 participants, 26 technology teams and unmanned systems to jointly explore unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) technologies in common, at-sea environments along Maryland’s shoreline. “Through the display of various emerging AUV-related technologies, the objective of the demonstration is to increase effectiveness in mine-hunting

exercises, ordnance surveys, maritime archeology and infrastructure inspection, such as bridges, shoreline or sea walls,” said Robert Gibson, PAX River 2015 project manager. Since 1997, ONR has presented eight AUV Fests and Science and Technology Demonstrations (S&T Demos) in Panama City. This is the first UAV demonstration presented by ONR at PAX River.

According to Gibson, military and commercial sectors are drastically increasing investments in unmanned systems, autonomy, automation, and systems-of-system solutions. Those approaches require earlier and more frequent interactions between the user and developer communities and this event will facilitate interactions by actually focusing on the system in their intended environments. “During the two-week demonstration, operators, developers, and stakeholders will have the opportunity to demonstrate capabilities, collect data and gain knowledge for operational gains,” he said. “This event will bring the unmanned users and developers together in intended environments to learn from each other and further our AUV capabilities.” An additional benefit expected from this event is the

completion of a Technology Transition Agreement that will allow the government, academia, and industry that will allow and enable the data collection and sharing with the intent to further develop future naval capabilities. “AUV systems from ONR's mine countermeasure (MCM) Future Naval Capability Program will demonstrate exit criteria from their technology transition agreements,” said Gibson. “The U.S. and international partners will conduct joint experimentation to investigate interoperability, usability, and enhance joint development efforts for the benefit of these emerging capabilities.” Participants will present their technologies findings from the prior two-week demonstration Sept. 23 and Distinguished Visitor Day will be held Sept. 24.

Information warfare leaders discuss issues By Lt. Brian Wagner Information Dominance Corps Reserve Command Public Affairs and Carla M. McCarthy Center for Information Dominance Public Affairs

A

three-day leadership symposium attended by 24 senior reserve information warfare (IW) officers wrapped up Aug. 30 at the Center for Information Dominance (CID) in Pensacola. Hosted by Rear Adm. Daniel J. MacDonnell, commander, Information Dominance Corps Reserve Command (IDCRC), the meeting brought together captains and senior commanders to talk about a variety of issues affecting both officers and enlisted personnel within the reserve IW community, and their place within the broader Information Dominance Corps (IDC). The IDC was stood up in 2009, while the IDCRC was established as a new type command in 2012 for all reserve personnel within the IW, intelligence, information professional, space, and oceanography and meteorology communities. “Although it is critical and expected for senior officers in the IDC to think and act holistically as members of the Information Dominance Corps, each IDC community brings a different culture, optic and approach to doing business and solving problems,” said MacDonnell. “Our strength is founded upon the individuality and diversity of each community like IW, which IDCRC leverages to ensure that we are able to man, train and equip the reserve personnel necessary to sustain the Navy’s three core Information Dominance ca-

pabilities: assuring command and control, maintaining battlespace awareness and integrating kinetic and non-kinetic fires.” The participants, who hailed from Navy Information Operations Commands (NIOC), IDC regional commands and other IDC units and embedded billets across the country, spent the weekend grappling with a wide range of issues impacting IW personnel and their ability to support the Navy and the IDC’s missions. The symposium was the first gathering in years to include every reserve captain from the IW community, many of whom had served with each other previously, building deep ties and bringing deep expertise that was reflected in the complexity and nuance of the various discussions. Topics covered in panels, working groups and presentations included clarifying IDC career milestones and progressions, realigning billets to better match mission requirements and align with geographic locations, reallocating funding to meet evolving requirements, promoting mentorship opportunities, and improving the process for IW Sailors to complete all necessary

IW and IDC training and qualifications in a timely manner. On the second day of the symposium, MacDonnell was joined by the other two reserve IDC flag officers, Rear Adm. Gene Price, deputy commander of U.S. Fleet Cyber Command and U.S. 10th Fleet, and Rear Adm. Linnea Sommer-Weddington, the director of Assured Command and Control Information Dominance (OpNav N2/N6F1). Price spoke about the numerous operational cyber threats that the Navy is countering – the IDC is adding nearly 300 cyber billets in the next four years to support such efforts – but also reflected on how he is beginning to see a change in how Sailors from the unique IDC communities view each other at Fleet Cyber Command. “We do so many similar things

across the IDC designators that I see a lot of overlap today. We are becoming more inclusive, more integrated and more collaborative, even in just the last year,” noted Price. “The junior officers on my staff have a new mindset; they don’t have the same divisions and preconceptions about their communities. They understand that while they may have different specialties, they all serve as part of the IDC.” Sommer-Weddington provided insight into FY16 priorities and recent leadership changes from her position within the Pentagon, where OpNavN2/N6 currently manages a budget of more than $13 billion annually to enable Information Dominance priorities throughout the Navy. CID, based at Corry Station in Pensacola, is the Navy’s learning center that leads, manages and

delivers Navy and joint forces training in information operations, information warfare, information technology, cryptology and intelligence. During the meeting, CID staff briefed attendees on the status of its training programs for IDC reservists and also provided a tour of the center’s Joint Cyber Analysis Course. “It is important for each community’s leaders within the IDC to gather on a regular basis, with the support and participation of the flag officers,” MacDonnell said. “These discussions, which are driven by perspectives and personalities shaped through the collective experience of hundreds of years of service, are critical for the future of the IDC.” For more news from Center for Information Dominance, visit www.navy.mil/local/cid/.

Bahlau marks eight months, looks ahead By Sheri Grabus NASWF Public Affairs

C

apt. Todd Bahlau took on the position of commanding officer (CO) at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) in December 2014. COs of military installations have an incredible amount of responsibility. Most people are unware of what the job involves, and that’s because base COs make sure things run smoothly so their people aren’t negatively impacted. During a recent interview to mark the eight-month point of his command, Bahlau answered questions about how it’s going so far as well as his vision for the future of NASWF. Here are some excerpts from the interview: Question: Is there any part of the job that you didn’t anticipate going into the position? Bahlau: Constantly getting emails – from early in the morning to late at night. You could spend your whole day behind your desk. Just answering or responding to e-mails, or staying up to speed on what’s going on. But that’s the biggest thing – I didn’t anticipate the amount of emails. Question: How is commanding a base different from other senior leadership positions you’ve held? Bahlau: The biggest thing ... is the breadth of responsibility that I have. ... (Here) not only do I have to care about the base and everything that goes with that but also ... our customers, our tenants. And we have 18 tenants here, so there’s just an incredible amount of responsibility. Question: What do you like most about the position? Bahlau: .... It’s just leading this tremendous workforce. I took over in December. The base just won the region nomination for Installation Excellence Award. And immediately after I took command we found out we

were the Navy’s winner for the Installation Excellence Award for the small base category. And that’s because of the tremendous workforce. So that, to me, is the best part about this position. Is leading the team here, because it’s just a tremendous amount of experience. Question: Have your goals for NASWF changed since you took this position? Bahlau: I don’t think they’ve really changed. I knew going into the job that one of my primary focus areas would be security. ... What can we do to improve the security to make sure that the people that come on this base or OLFs are safe? And if there ever is an incident that we can respond properly to make sure we handle the situation in the shortest amount of time. Question: What have been your greatest accomplishments thus far as CO of NASWF? Bahlau: Not really for me, but for the base, it’s just quite the accomplishment to be the Installation Excellence Award (winner). The last time we won this award was in the late ’80s. So it’s far overdue. So me personally – I don’t think I’ve done anything special. I just keep the foot on the accelerator to make sure we maintain the bar – raise the bar – and that we always set the example. ... It’s great getting recognition. But as long as we continue to set the bar and set the example for other installations, then we’re right where we need to be. Question: Where does progress still need to be made, and how will you use your position to spur this progress? Bahlau: I still think we have some progress to be made in two

areas, mainly. (The first) is security: we’re upgrading our fence here. We’re going to look to redo our ECP (entry control point) ... And the other area is infrastructure. For the last few years our number one MilCon project has been to redo the North Field tower. ... If it doesn’t get funded this year, then I’ve got to continue to push hard for our senior leadership to get our project rated higher on the priority list so that it can get funded. And I know that we want to do some facility upgrades here on the base. Because there are some old buildings that could use some repair, or even new construction of some buildings, to make the conditions for the tenants better. Question: Are there any upcoming programs or initiatives you’d like to share? Bahlau: ... (Our) MWR director and I are looking at different options to see what we can bring over there near the former golf course to add some more activities on the base ... We’re looking at maybe putting in a fitness course over there. We’re also looking at potentially bringing in paintball ... (One) of the common complaints that we get through checkouts and through the student critiques is actually food – variety on base. So we’re look-

ing at bringing in different food options. The North Field snack bar has finally been approved for funding. So we should see the North Field snack bar being built here in September with a completion date in October/November timeframe ... We’re also converting the bowling center into a community center. We’re going to combine the Liberty Center over at the CBQ, with ITT, a library, and outdoor rec, into one community center at the bowling alley ... (It’s) going to be a great facility, for not only our single sailors but the families that visit the base. Question: What top-line message do you wish to share with military, civilians and contractors at NASWF? Bahlau: ... The number one expectation for me is: We set the example. We never accept the status quo and always show improvement on higher headquarter inspections, evaluations and assessments ... The workforce here does a tremendous amount of great work, and I’ve no doubt we’re going to meet that expectation. Question: Is there one thing you’d like the local community to know about NASWF that you feel they don’t already understand? Bahlau: ... A lot of them just don’t know that – not only do we

train naval aviators, but we train between 60 and 68 percent of the initial aviators in the T6, and 100 percent of the naval aviators in helicopters. So all Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard helicopter pilots are trained right here at Whiting Field. Students earn their Wings of Gold every two weeks. You’d be surprised how many people don’t realize how important this base is to our national security. Because the aviators out there conducting strikes against enemies against the United States right now – the majority of them got their initial flight training at Whiting Field. And the helicopters that are providing support – all of them were trained here at Whiting Field. So that’s pretty important. Question: Is there one thing you’d like the nation to know about NASWF? Bahlau: We train the world’s best naval aviators. That’s the biggest thing ...When you look at all the naval aviation training bases – we fly the most hours. When you look at our aviation complex with Whiting Field and the 13 OLFs, we’re the busiest aviation complex in the world. So pretty important to the nation. Question: Do you see any changes for NASWF further into the future? Bahlau: ... In our long-range plans, obviously we just got the new T6 primary training aircraft to replace the T34. The TH-57 is an aging helicopter. In fact, I flew that as a student pilot back in the early ’90s. So I would think in the future you’re going to see more information going out about replacement of the TH57s. So we should see a new helicopter to train student pilots. ... (Now) that the golf course is no longer in existence, potentially putting in a parallel runway at North Field to help out with the T6 operations would go a long way to improve the traffic in and out of North Field. Along with the potentially new helicopter we would like to do a combined aviation HT building for the helicopter squadron.

Astronomy club: Busy month with lunar eclipse, UFO presentation From Dr. Wayne Wooten and Escambia Amateur Astronomers Association

Super “bloodmoon” observed: About 8 p.m. Sept. 27, the “supermoon” (a full moon at perigee, when the moon is closest to Earth and largest in our sky) will start to enter the Earth’s shadow. By 9:10 p.m. it will be completely inside our shadow, and will stay totally eclipsed for about the next hour. Astronomers call this one a “school children’s eclipse,” since observing it will be in convenient evening hours for all the family to enjoy in their yards. If you want a closer view of the events, plan to come out (clear skies permitting, of course) to Pensacola State College (PSC) where the PSC Physical Sciences Department and the student chapter of the Escambia Amateur Astronomer’s Association (EAAA) will present a public star gaze from 8-11 p.m. to watch this colorful event. They will be setting up telescopes around the PSC planetarium on Airport Boulevard across from Taco Bell, and not only let you look through them, but take photos of the event to share with everyone on Face-

book and other media through your smartphones. There is no charge for any EAAA event; join us in looking up.

UFO: The Pheonomena: Have you every wondered why some times there is a lot of buzz about UFOs (unidentified flying objects) but other times there seems to be nothing happening in the sky? There may be a reason for that and it may have a lot to do with our brains and the way that we perceive things of which we are uncertain and things that frighten us because of a plausible explanation. “UFO: The Phenomenon,” a program scheduled for 7 p.m., Oct. 3, Hagler Auditorium

(Room 252) at PSC, explores the history of UFO sightings, even into prehistoric times, and demonstrates the modern view of UFOs, extraterrestrials, and the possibility that Earth is being visited by aliens. Astronomers will examine the reports to identify where the sightings normally occur, what the typical report contains, the physical makeup of “aliens” as described by those purporting to have seen them. In addition it will visit the UFO phenomenon’s affect on everything from lifestyle and media to architecture throughout the world. This presentation, sponsored by PSC and the EAAA, will feature one half of the time in the presentation, followed by an open forum with audience interaction on their sightings, beliefs and theories; persons will be allowed to present their stories in a 60-second time frame after which the moderator and audience will interject science, ideas and opinions. P. Clay Sherrod, director of Arkansas Sky Observatories, one of the nation’s oldest private observatories, will give this overview in an exciting audience participation forum. It will represent more than a decade of public

presentations by Sherrod on the PSC (and previous PJC) campus. Common misconceptions and identification mistakes will be presented, showing how many times common events and objects can be mistaken for alien spacecraft, and Sherrod will discuss the psychological influence that the UFO revolution has had on lives throughout the world. Examples of reported UFOs will be shown, some never before seen, as will many “Photoshopped” enhancements of objects and scenes as hoaxes; among them will be the famous 1987-1991 Gulf Breeze UFO hoax that made world headlines for several years before accomplices came forward to reveal the nature of the true UFOs and the originator behind the hoax. Nonetheless, people are genuinely convinced that they are indeed seeing “flying saucers” in the sky, virtually every night. The reasons as to how normal and otherwise responsible citizens are seeing these are presented, along with the social ridicule stigma that associates with many who do report legitimate sightings. The presentation is free and open to the general public.

NETC honors civilians of the quarter By Lt. j.g. Andrew DeGarmo NETC Public Affairs

The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) honored their junior and senior Civilians of the Quarter (COQ) for the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 at an awards ceremony Aug. 26. Karen Harris was selected as the junior COQ and Deana Broadway as the senior civilian. Harris has served at NETC headquarters, in Pensacola, since 2006 and is a logistics and spare parts administrator for the Electronic Classroom (ECR) team. She coordinates, researches, and provides approval submission for all ECR requirements related

to life cycle support, technology refresh, and spare parts requests. Along with providing oversight to three conKaren Harris tractors, Harris also keeps track of software maintenance, license tracking, and version control. “It is a great honor being nominated, so to be selected makes me feel even more special,” said Harris. “I was nominated in the first quarter and although I didn’t win, my peers are aware of the hard work I do and continued their recognition

by nominating me again this quarter.” Bruce Bare, Harris’ supervisor, notes that she does not wait to be told what to do, but takes the initiative as she sees the need. “Karen can be best described as a sparkplug,” said Bare. “There may be lots of others involved, but at the center of effort she has initiated getting the engine started.” Broadway started working for the NETC Learning and Development Directorate in Norfolk, Va., in 2008, but has been in civil service since 1992. She is the access management lead for the Corporate Enterprise Training Activity Resource System (CeTARS) and Authoring In-

structional Material (AIM). CeTARS is an automated information system used by training managers and upper echelons of the Navy to manage and support all Navy training by maintaining accurate student, instructor and course data. AIM is another automated tool designed to improve and streamline the training development and maintenance process. Along with the account management, Broadway is responsible for the governance, user validation and execution of all user accounts for both systems. “Receiving this award and being recognized for the work being done is definitely an honor; it feels good to know that

we are making an impact,” said Broadway. “Whatever I am working on, I want to ensure our workforces receive what is required to make their work easier.” Michael Mosley, Broadway’s supervisor, said that she is a real “self-starter” and requires very little direction. “Deana takes note of a basic concept and runs with it,” said Mosely. “Her efforts have not only reduced the time for endusers to receive their accounts, but also allowed us to focus on application improvements and better employ personnel skillsets.” For more news from NETC, visit www.navy.mil/local/cnet/.

Civilians recognized at CNATT award ceremony From CNATT Public Affairs

mentman (PR) ratings, also led the efforts for CNATT’s Council on Occupational Education (COE) reaffirmation of accreditation self-study. “I have the privilege of working with a great team,” he said. “What we’re doing is ensuring the students taking the courses that we oversee are ready to get to the fleet and continue the legacy of success naval aviation is known for.” “As the command’s accreditation liaison officer, Mr. Getchell’s leadership and expertise ensured the team validated all standard requirements and criteria established by COE, resulting in safeguarding the readiness of CNATT's 27 learning sites,” said Capt. Eric Simon, CNATT executive officer. Anglen, a CNATT inventory management specialist, serves the command through support equipment controlling

authority roles, providing guidance and technical assistance in support of multiple CNATT learning sites. “Mr. Anglen is instrumental in our continued success in achieving the CNATT mission,” Simon added. “His processing of Local Asset Management System exports and Support Equipment Management System transactions ahead of schedule for 17 learning sites are keeping our students training for their future endeavors in the fleet.” According to his JCOQ nomination package, Anglen also located 18 excess fleet test equipment items for redistribution to CNATT Learning Sites, and submitted and tracked 18 depot-level support equipment and 20 calibration test equipment repairs, while coordinating receipt of three temporary loans for Individual Material Readiness List (IMRL) support

equipment. “We are supporting our learning sites by ensuring they have the proper functioning training equipment so our students are trained on what is actually used in the fleet,” Anglen said. Simon stressed that the importance of civilian employees at the headquarters command overseeing the majority of Navy aviation enlisted technical training cannot be understated. “The wealth of experience these individuals bring to the table is unparalleled,” he said. “They know what the fleet needs and have consistently produced the coursework we are using to train the next generation of aircraft maintenance professionals.” For more news from Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training, visit www.navy.mil/local/cnatt/.

Former ‘Blackbird’ pilot uses photos to tell his story From IHMC

The Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) public lecture series returns Sept. 24 with a presentation by Brian Shul titled “From Butterflies to Blackbirds.” Shul uses photos and stories as a vehicle to tell an inspired story of hope, overcoming obstacles and daring to dream. From lying near death in the jungles of Southeast Asia to flying the world’s fastest jet, Shul shares his amazing journey in an unforgettable presentation that not only reveals fascinating details of piloting the SR-71, but a meaningful message on life’s opportunities as well. Born in1948 in Quantico, Va., Shul graduated from East Carolina University in 1970 with a degree in history and

anthropology. Flying close air support missions in Vietnam, he flew 212 missions before his aircraft was shot down. Severely burned in the crash he was given little

chance of survival. He spent one year in hospitals, endured 15 reconstructive surgeries and after countless hours of physical therapy, Shul surprised his doctors and returned to flying jets. In addition, he flew the A-7D, and was in the first A-10 squadron, becoming an airshow demonstration pilot. Shul also taught at the Air Force’s TOPGUN School and culminated his Air Force career with selection to fly the world’s premier spy plane, the SR-71. This was a remarkable accomplishment considering that it required an astronaut physical to qualify for the plane that routinely flew above 95 percent of the earth’s atmosphere. Only 93 Air Force pilots in history ever flew the SR-71, still the fastest plane ever built. Shul flew the “Blackbird” for four years and was the pilot who provided key photos

of Libyan terrorist camps to President Ronald Reagan during the Libyan crisis in 1986 when he became the only SR71 pilot ever to fly three missions in three consecutive days. Shul retired from the Air Force in 1990, and pursued his writing interests. He wrote a book about flying the SR71 and illustrated it with his own photography. It earned him the Aviation Book of the Year honors from the Smithsonian. He has written four other aviation books, for which he did all the flying, writing and photography. He is the only man in America to have flown extensively with both the Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels in the making of those books. Shul is the owner of Gallery One in Marysville, Calif., where his nationally acclaimed nature photography is on display.

Country music fans are snapping up tickets for the new Country on the Sound concert, set for Sept. 25-26 at Navarre Beach. Country stars Trace Adkins and Big & Rich are headlining the event, with numerous other country acts filling the festival’s stages at the Navarre Beach Marine Park. The 116acre park stretches from Santa Rosa Sound to the Gulf of Mexico. Country on the Sound kicks off the 2015 Beaches to Woodlands Tour, a collection of festivals and other events all over Santa Rosa County. Cortni Bird, a Navarre Beach resident, is the co-promoter for Country on the Sound. She’s also one of the performers in the concert. “Nothing has happened like this before, really, in Santa Rosa County, with the ‘A’ list celebrities,” she said. “This is definitely something different for this area. And who doesn’t want to come to the beach?” The concert is being produced by Nashville-based Astar Productions and Navarre Family Watersports, owned by Navarre resident Greg Briton. The live entertainment starts at 2 p.m. each afternoon, with the headliners taking the stage at 9:30 p.m. each night. After the concert each evening, the party continues with the Late Night Jam until 1 a.m. Tickets are $35 for one-day

Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim 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.
