Veterans should listen to the options carefully as many have changed to expedite their call and provide prompt customer service. Veterans can continue to contact their Patient Aligned Care Team and specialty care clinics for their appointments, although the call center provides veterans another way to access care.

In a recent video message, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus spoke to the Navy family about the events of Sept.16. “The awful events that happened at the Navy Yard today (Sept. 16) were an attack on our Navy family. The men and women we lost today died in the service of their country. They were, each, patriots. We will come together, as a family, to deal with this. “If you were at the Navy Yard today, if you had a friend or a loved one, or just as a part of the Navy family, if you need assistance in dealing with this, we’ve set up a center at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling. Please call (800) 222-0364 and someone will help you work through this awful, awful event. “Again, we will come together as a family, and support those who have given so much and those who have lost so much today.”

Victory Media, the media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Pensacola State College (PSC) to its Military Friendly Schools list. The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. “Veterans have been an important part of PSC’s rich heritage since we opened our doors in 1948,” said Pensacola State College President Ed Meadows. “Since that time, thousands and thousands of veterans

and their family members have attended Pensacola State College.” More than 1,200 veterans and active-duty military personnel are currently enrolled at PSC for the fall term.

“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Pensacola State College’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean

Collins, vice president at Victory Media and a nine-year veteran. “The need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class re-

sources to assist in their search for schools.” The Military Friendly Schools media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com,

He was also selected to be a member of the Sea Control Wing Atlantic S-3B Flight Demonstration Team. Following his first fleet squadron tour, Tutwiler remained at NAS Jacksonville for duty at the Sea Control Weapons School as a Viking weapons and tactics instructor. While there, he managed the Air Combat Training Continuum Program for the entire S-3B community, and conducted numerous Sea Control Advanced Readiness Program assist visits. Based on his expertise in S-3B electronic surveillance systems, he was selected for transition to the EA-6B Prowler at NAS Whidbey Island, Wash., in 2004. Following EA-6B fleet replacement training, he returned to sea duty as an electronic countermeasures officer with Electronic Attack Squadron 137 from 2005 to 2007. While deployed aboard USS Enterprise (CVN 65), he participated in combat flight operations in direct support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, including two shore-based detachments to Al Anbar Province, Iraq. When not flying, Tutwiler performed his ground duties as squadron safety officer, assistant operations officer and administration officer. He quickly acquired his EA6B mission commander designation and served as Prowler LNO for the USCENTCOM Combined Air Operations Center supporting Carrier Air Wing One combat sorties. His next duty assignment was Electronic Attack Squadron 139 as a squadron department head from 2007 to 2009. Serving as tactics officer, operations officer and maintenance officer, he deployed aboard USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) for combat flight operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. During his tour he attained designation as suppression of enemy air defenses element strike lead, completed Joint Professional Military Education Phase I and qualified as command duty officer underway. While assigned, he was awarded the 2008 Association of Naval Aviation Rear Adm. A.C. Read Navigator of the Year (2008). Tutwiler then reported to U.S. Strategic Command in Omaha, Neb., in 2009, where he managed capability and resource integration requirements for the joint portfolio of future global strike systems (nuclear, conventional and non-kinetic) until being selected for command in 2011. Tutwiler has accumulated more than 2,500 flight hours in the S-3B Viking and EA-6B Prowler. His decorations include the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal Strike/Flight (three awards), Navy Commendation Medal (three awards), Joint Service Achievement Medal and Navy Achievement Medal (four awards).

Weight gain: Watch out for the post-retirement creep By Dr. Jennifer Driscoll Baptist Medical Group

H

ere’s a quick thought exercise: If you’re retired military and you were invited to attend a friend’s retirement ceremony, or some other official function, do you think you could fit into your old dress uniform? If you answered “yes,” could you do it without popping buttons or using the old rubber band trick to gap a straining waistband? Chances are, the answer is “no.” It’s a fact of life that our metabolism slows in middle age and beyond. With a slower metabolism, often comes weight gain. A little weight gain from your activeduty baseline probably won’t hurt you, but weight has a way of creeping up on you and staying around. Significant weight gain can lead to serious health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes and arthritis pain in your back and joints. Some folks are blessed with a naturally high metabolism and an aversion to sweets. The rest of us aren’t so lucky. For those of you who maybe hovered around the upper end of the height-weight standards, or who put on a few too many post-retirement pounds, let me share with you what I’ve learned over the years as a family physician.

Stop looking for the magic pill or diet. Stop believing every internet or late night cable ad. If there were an amazing pill or dietary supplement that lets you eat what you want while still losing weight, the big pharmaceutical companies would be selling it like hot cakes. So, how can you control your weight? First, be realistic about your weight loss goal. While many of us would love to reach the weight we were when we enlisted or when we got married, often that’s not realistic. Setting an unrealistic goal sets you up for frustration and failure. A more realistic goal is to lose five percent to seven percent of your current body weight. Research shows that losing just five percent of your current weight can have a significant impact on your health, lowering both blood pressure and blood sugar. For a person weighing 200 pounds, that’s a goal of 10 to 14 pounds of weight loss. Second, concentrate on the calories in your diet. Losing

About the columnist Dr. Jennifer Driscoll, a family physician with Baptist Medical Group, recently retired from the Navy with 26 years of service. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, she worked as an engineer before earning her medical degree from the Uniformed Sciences University in Bethesda, Md. She completed her family medicine residency at Naval Hospital Pensacola. weight is not quick or easy, but the principle is simple. It all boils down to a balance between “calories in” from what you eat versus “calories out” that you burn through exercise. A change of 500 calories a day will lead to the loss of one pound a week. While ex-

ercise is important to your overall health and to maintaining a healthy weight, cutting calories is the key to weight loss. It is much easier to cut 500 calories a day out of your diet – give up a bag of chips and a soda, or a couple glasses of sweet tea – than it is to jog for 45 minutes or swim for an hour every day. Third, keep a food diary. Document what, where and how much you eat. Medical studies have shown that people who keep a food diary are much more likely to lose weight. What you find from your food diary may open your eyes. Do you skip breakfast, eat yogurt for lunch then empty the entire pantry when you come home from work? Do you eat a healthy breakfast and dinner, but really add on the calories by going out to lunch with your co-workers? Do you mindlessly snack in front of the TV after the children are in bed? Do you have a few beers or glasses of wine every night? Keeping a food diary forces you to be honest, but it also helps you pin-point your problem areas to help identify where you can drop 500 calories a day. Next, make your plan. Based on your food diary, figure out where you can eliminate 500 calories a day. Don’t make a vague commitment to eat less. Instead commit to a specific action such as giving up sweet tea, stopping that nightly glass of wine, or taking

a brown bag lunch to work. If portion control is an issue, consider using a meal replacement product for one meal a day. Frozen healthy lunches, meal bars or meal replacement shakes for one meal a day can help you lose weight without compromising your dietary intake of vitamins, minerals and fiber. And finally, don’t give-up if you slip-up. If you splurge and have a big slice of birthday cake at work, don’t throw in the towel. Keep the calories light the remainder of the day and get back on track the next day. Your goal should be to adopt healthy diet changes that give you slow but consistent weight loss of a pound or so a week. Keep at it and you might just fit into that old uniform.

Proclamations signed: Suicide prevention, ombudsman efforts acknowledged by Navy locally and regionally “An actively engaged force ... is key to the successful prevention of suicide.” Stories, photo by MC1(SW) Greg Johnson Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs

Rear Adm. Rick Williamson, Commander, Navy Region Southeast, signed a suicide prevention awareness proclamation onboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville Sept. 9. The proclamation recognizes September as National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and is intended to raise suicide awareness prevention throughout the Southeast region. “This proclamation brings to light an issue of paramount importance in our military today,” Williamson said. “Each year, we lose shipmates, co-workers and family members to suicide and these losses can be prevented. It is our collective responsibility to remain alert to the warning signs and to be prepared to take action with those in our lives who might be at risk. An actively engaged force, including everyone in the Navy family, is key to the successful prevention of suicide.” The proclamation’s theme highlights the importance of taking action as individuals and to recognize the impact of stressors in our day-to-day lives, as well as how to develop protective factors against stress and suicide. According to Dianne Parker, Navy Region Southeast assistant suicide prevention outreach coordinator, there is no better way to have a successful program than ensuring suicide prevention information and indicators are available to all personnel. “Suicide continues to be a major issue for all hands,” she said. “Our goal is to reduce the number of these tragedies through education and awareness campaigns, and we hope this proclamation will go a long way in those efforts.” One of the latest tools the Navy is using toward suicide prevention efforts is the NavyTHRIVE campaign, which encourages Sailors, commands, families and civilians to empower themselves by taking personal responsibility for their health, wellness and growth. “The program is a new approach to resilience and it really emphasizes self-empowerment and growth,” Parker said. “The goal is not for Sailors to merely overcome adversity, but to come back from it stronger than they were before.” In addition to those efforts, the region implemented an aggressive suicide prevention coordinator (SPC) training pro-

Rear Adm. Rick Williamson signs a proclamation in support of Navy Suicide Prevention Month onboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville Sept. 9. The proclamation designated September as Navy Suicide Prevention Month throughout the Southeast Region. Williamson also signed a proclamation in support of the Navy Family Ombudsman Program (NFOP).

Onboard NAS Pensacola, two similar proclamations in support were signed by base CO Capt. Keith Hoskins Sept. 16.

gram in September 2011 that utilizes Defense Connect Online. So far, it has resulted in more than 300 newly qualified coordinators throughout the region and more than 1,700 worldwide. Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) educational services and work and family life specialists assist command SPCs with training in the areas of stress management, conflict management, parent education, anger management and suicide prevention. So far this fiscal year, command SPCs and FFSC personnel have conducted more than 1,200 training sessions attended by more than 43,000 people. “The program has been instrumental in raising awareness and getting the message out to leaders throughout the DoD. Leaders need to make Sailors understand that there is no shame in reaching out for help,” Parker said. Each year, hundreds of DoD personnel commit suicide and many of these cases could be prevented if friends and co-workers only knew what to look for and took action, she added. “The bottom line is if you suspect that someone may be thinking about suicide, you need to act, care and treat,” she said. “The key is to take action. The worst thing that you can possibly do is nothing.” For more information about NavyTHRIVE, visit http://www. public. navy. mil/bupers-npc/ support/21st_ Century_Sailor/suicide_ prevention/ spmonth/Pages/ default.aspx. Onboard NAS Pensacola, ADC Termaine Pruitt is the designated SPC. He can be reached by e-mail at termaine.pruitt@navy.mil or by phone at 452-2035.

Sept. 14, Ombudsman Appreciation Day, efforts acknowledged throughout region; proclamation signed onboard NAS Pensacola Rear Adm. Rick Williamson, Commander, Navy Region Southeast, signed a proclamation in support of the Navy Family Ombudsman Program (NFOP) onboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville Sept. 9. The proclamation signing commemorated the 43rd anniversary of the NFOP and declared Sept. 14 as Ombudsman Appreciation Day throughout the region. “For more than four decades, the Navy ombudsman program has been an invaluable resource in our efforts to support our warfighters and their families,” Williamson said. “I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of our ombudsmen throughout the region for their continued support. Our Sailors and their families would face a much more difficult task without you.” The NFOP was launched Sept. 14, 1970, by Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Elmo Zumwalt to assist commands in maintaining the morale, health and welfare of Navy families. Ombudsmen act as liaisons between commanding officers and the families of service members. They typically provide a variety of resources, such as providing family members with official information and emergency assistance. Commander, Navy Installations Command reports that ombudsmen volunteer efforts save the Navy more than $2 million annually. According to Dianne Parker, Navy Region Southeast deployment support program manager and ombudsman program coordinator, the proclamation is significant because it acknowledges the efforts of ombudsmen not only throughout the region, but throughout the Navy. “It’s important to recognize the anniversary of the ombudsman program because our ombudsmen are a part of the command support team, they make sure families know what resources are available to them, and help them adjust to the military way of life,” she said. “If it weren’t for our Navy ombudsmen, our Sailors would carry a much heavier burden in the face of their military duties.

According to the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center, 24.4 percent of Sailors and 30.8 percent of Marines smoke, which is higher than the smoking rate for U.S. adults. According to www.cdc.gov, tobacco smoke contains a deadly mix of more than 7,000 chemicals, many of which are toxic and associated with cancer. Smoking can lead to serious health problems like heart disease, stroke, emphysema, other serious diseases and possibly even death. Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) not only provides exceptional healthcare, but its dedicated team of healthcare providers also educate beneficiaries about healthy lifestyles to include the effects of tobacco use. “Tobacco use is an expensive addiction with a never-ending list of negative consequences,” said James Sherrard, head of Deployment Health and Wellness Center, NHP. “Our (beneficiaries) who use tobacco get sick more often, have poorer physical readiness test results and deal with side-effects like fatigue,

New chiefs frocked at Whiting Field From Jay Cope NASWF PAO

Five Sailors enjoyed the opportunity to wear a new uniform for the first time Sept. 13 as they traded their first class petty officer uniforms for the uniform of a Navy chief. Aviation boatswain mates LeDerrick Garrison, Vandie Smith, Carlos Peralta, Chad Whitta and Bradley Anthony were frocked to their new ranks during a pinning ceremony at Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s Atrium building. A sixth Whiting Field Sailor was also selected for promotion, however, MAC Kenneth Pratt is serving on an individual augmentee tour overseas.

Putting on the chief petty officer uniform is one of the proudest moments in a Sailor’s career, and NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin emphasized the impact of the role chiefs embody, during his remarks as the guest speaker. “My father was a World War II Sailor and until the day he died, he remembered the names of the chief petty officers he served with. So I would advise these (new chiefs) to never, ever underestimate their influence on either our junior Sailors or their impact on Navy leadership,” he stated. The brief ceremony began

with the parading of the colors, the playing of the national anthem, and a few words from CMDCM Alton Smith about the importance of the day’s events. He then welcomed the new chiefs, who entered singing a rousing rendition of “Anchors Aweigh.” Following Coughlin’s remarks, ACC Rachael Garcia read the meaning behind the fouled anchor, which serves as the rank insignia for chief petty officers. With the five new chiefs standing at attention, the moment they were waiting for finally arrived and each was called forward in turn for their family and friends to pin on

their new rank, and a chief to place the khaki combination covers on their heads. All chiefs in the audience were then requested to stand for the reading of the chief’s creed. Garrison, Smith, Peralta, Whitta and Anthony were then each piped through the sideboys, introduced to the audience, and joined the formation of chief petty officers off to the side of the audience. For the new chiefs and their families, the ceremony marked a major milestone in their careers and served as an event they plan to never forget. “From the day you enlist, you see the chief. It’s what you aspire to. It’s what you dream about,” Anthony said after the

ceremony. “This is a new beginning for all six of us. We are eternally thankful for all of the hard work of the many Sailors that were left in our charge. Without them we would not be standing here.” The achievement is certainly a great moment in their careers, but along with the advantages and privileges of being a chief petty officer, also comes greater responsibility and accountability to the chain of command. “There are a lot of hard decisions that need to be made by the command, and the chiefs’ mess has a huge input into those decisions, and I rely on that,” Coughlin said. “I am incredibly proud of these six Sailors.”

NETC Inspector General Alan Johnson highlights Navy career Story, photo NETC Public Affairs

“As NETC inspector general, my job is to improve the Navy through audits, inspections, and investigations,” Alan Johnson said recently. “The NETC Area Visit Program assesses learning centers, training support centers and learning sites to ensure mission critical (training) and associated support (administrative) programs and processes are in place and working to accomplish the NETC mission of training and education.” Johnson said he is driven by the desire to successfully accomplish goals he’s given to make a better Navy. “I am inspired by charismatic leaders who care about their people, and by hard-working people pulling together as a team to accomplish organizational goals,” Johnson noted. “I am inspired by individuals accomplishing personal goals, especially in the face of adversity.” He said his greatest accomplishment of the past year was watching, with great pride, his youngest son get commissioned as a naval officer in Newport, R.I., and successfully completing primary flight training at NAS Whiting Field. “Ryan was selected for P-3 Orion and P-8 Poseidon aircraft supporting anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare,” Johnson said. “He is at NAS Corpus Christi, where he will begin the next phase of his training, working toward his winging and designa-

tion as a naval aviator.” The best piece of advice he ever received came from his father, who told him, “If you’re going to do a job, do it right.” Johnson doesn’t have to wish for his dream job. He says he’s already lived it. “Being assigned to a Navy E-2C Hawkeye squadron and flying in aircraft launched from the deck of an aircraft carrier is about as good as it gets,” he said; “Challenging, but very rewarding.” Outside of work, he is an avid video gamer, plays guitar, and is active in ministry and the Knights of Columbus at St. Sylvester Catholic Church in Gulf Breeze.

“And yes ... I like yard work, though it is a lot harder to grow a nice looking lawn here in Pensacola, than it was in Virginia,” he says. “Too many exotic weeds.” Johnson, and his wife, Doreen, love to snow ski, so the slopes are on their bucket list. “I would like to ski all the major ski resorts in the U.S.,” he says. Something few people know about Johnson is he went to the same high school as Lebron James of the Miami Heat. “We both attended St-Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio,” he said. “Of course, I graduated from there eight years before he was born.”

Military-themed show celebrates Imogene’s anniversary Story and photo from Panhandle Community Theatre

A USO-style variety show titled “Star-Spangled Salute to our Troops – An Old-Fashioned Touring Variety Show Honoring Our Military” will be on stage at 7 p.m. Sept. 27, Sept. 28, Oct. 4 and Oct. 5 and 2 p.m. Sept. 29 at the historic Imogene Theatre, 6866 Caroline St., in downtown Milton. The show is a tribute to area military set in the 1940s as well as the birthday celebration. A collaboration between Panhandle Community Theatre (PCT) and the Santa Rosa Historical Society (SRHS), each performance will feature singers, dancers, comedy acts, magicians, child performers and celebrity impersonators. The Oct. 5 performance will mark the

100th anniversary of the theater. The Imogene Theatre was built between 1912-1913. The architecture is categorized as “Renaissance-Revival style.” The theater’s original intent was to serve as a community hall for opera, plays, balls and vaudeville; but it also featured a permanent projection booth to accommodate moving pictures. A post office resided in the lower floor along with a five-and-dime store. The theater, named “Milton Auditorium,” opened in October 1913. The first movie offered was the 1903 black-and-white silent film “The Passion Play” with live piano accompaniment. First-run movies later became the norm including classics such as “Gone With the Wind” and “Casablanca.” In 1924, presidential candidate

The Imogene Theatre in Milton is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

William Jennings Bryan presented speeches from the stage of the theater. In 1921, Clyde Gooch bought the theater and renamed it the “Imogene Theatre” after his 11-year old daughter.

The theater was the first building in Milton to install air conditioning during 1938. In 1985, the SRHS purchased the aging building for $35,000. Several grants enabled the SRHS to begin renovations and the theater reopened in 1988. A fire in 2009 destroyed every building west of the Imogene, with the theater suffering extensive smoke and water damage. Grants coupled with insurance funds enabled the SRHS to bring the theater back to its full glory. Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for children 12 and younger.

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted.
