NAS Pensacola to conduct water tests ... Following new Navy guidance and procedures, Commander, Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE) ordered testing for lead in water outlets located in priority areas at 15 of its installations in the Southeast region, including Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP), beginning this month. This additional testing is above and beyond EPA regulatory requirements. NASP, the Navy and EPA promote healthy (school/child day care center/youth center) environments and water quality is one component of a healthy environment. To ensure that children using these base facilities have access to the safest possible drinking water, a number of steps are being taken. These include testing drinking water for lead, sharing results with parents, students and staff and other interested stakeholders; and, if problems are identified, taking appropriate and necessary action to correct any problems. NASP facilities are scheduled to be tested in mid-October. Before these tests begin, MWR and NASP public affairs will provide an informational letter, fact sheet and contact information for questions and test results. For additional information on lead in water testing, access the CNRSE webpage at: http://cnic.navy.mil/regions/cnrse/om/lead-in-priority-area-sampling-program.html.

National Gold Star Mother’s and Family Day Sept. 28 From staff reports

National Gold Star (NGS) Mother’s and Family Day, recognized as the last Sunday in September, is being observed onboard NAS Pensacola and regionally with proclamations signed by NASP CO Capt. Keith Hoskins and scheduled to be signed by Rear Adm. Mary M. Jackson, Commander, Navy Region Southeast. Gold Star families are families of those who died serving in the United States armed forces and are identified by a gold star lapel button. A presidential proclamation of Sept. 13, 1993, directs all government officials to display the flag of the United States over government buildings on this day. Additionally, POTUS encourages the American people to display the flag and hold appropriate ceremonies as a public expression of the nation’s sympathy and respect for American Gold Star mothers and families. In 2013, Gold Star Family (GSF)-designated parking signs were placed outside high-traffic facilities aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). Parking spot location include the Pensacola Navy Exchange (NEX) Mall, Pensacola Commissary, Fleet and Family Support Center and Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP). The term Gold Star family is a modern reference that comes from the Service Flag. These flags/banners were first flown by families during World War I. The flag included a blue star for every immediate family

NHP: Respiratory illness outbreak; precautions From Naval Hospital Pensacola

There have been recent outbreaks of respiratory illnesses involving enterovirus D-68 (EV-D68) that have been reported in multiple states including Florida and Alabama. The illness primarily affects children, and the most common symptoms are a mild cold or respiratory illness. For some individuals, the illness may progress to wheezing and difficulty breathing. On rare occasions, hospitalization may be required. There is no specific treatment for people with a respiratory illness caused by EV-D68, but for mild respiratory illnesses, over-the-counter medications for pain and fever can be taken (aspirin should not be given to children). To help prevent being infected by this or similar respiratory illnesses, follow these steps: • Wash hands often with soap and warm water for 20

On Sept. 18, the NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) held an ombudsman appreciation reception to recognize the spouses who volunteer their time in support of military families. Every command has an ombudsman who is a spouse of a service member at the command. The ombudsman serves as the liaison between the command and the families, and assists

Tamikia Hollowell, president of the area chapter Navy Wives Club, Angels of Blue Angels, also presented each honoree with a rose and thanked them for their service. Honorees who received certificates ranged in experience from one ombudsman who was serving her first day in the role to others who had served for several years and at multiple duty stations. Commanding Officer of NAS Pensacola, Capt. Keith Hoskins, expressed his gratitude for the role of the ombudsmen. “On every deployment and pre-deployment, and coming home we see the magnitude of the efforts of our ombudsman,” Hoskins said. “These individuals volunteer their time selflessly in the service of military families.

If that loved one died, the blue star was replaced by a gold star. This allowed members of the community to know the price that the family had paid in the cause of freedom. The United States began observing Gold Star Mothers Day on the last Sunday of September, in 1936. The Gold Star Wives was formed before the end of World War II. The Gold Star lapel button was established in August 1947. Today, the nation recognizes the sacrifice that all Gold Star Family members make when a father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter or other loved one dies in service to the nation. The strength of the nation is the military; the strength of the military is in the service members. The strength of service members is the family. The nation recognizes that no one has given more for the nation than the families of the fallen. For more information, visit http://www.navygoldstar.com/.

Federal Impact Aid surveys coming soon From Carissa Bergosh NASP School Liaison Officer

All NAS Pensacola members and civilian employees (including contractors) who are parents or guardians of school-age children attending public schools should be on the lookout for the Federal Impact Aid survey cards which were distributed Sept. 22. These cards were sent home from school with your children. Data received from the Federal Impact Aid survey cards is a source of desperately needed funding for local schools. For schools to be awarded the maximum amount of funding available, all you have to do is fill out the card and return it to your child’s school. Cards must be returned for the data to be collected that will qualify local schools for the additional funding that is offered under the Federal Impact Aid program. D-68 from page 1

seconds (alcohol-based hand sanitizers are not effective against viruses like EV-D68). • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. • Avoid kissing, hugging and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.

All military dependent and “federally connected” students in grades k-12 are eligible. “Federally connected” children include those whose parents or guardians are federal civilian employees or contractors. The children of civilian employees and contractors who work at NAS Pensacola qualify as federally connected. Federal Impact Aid surveys are conducted annually. The data received determines the amount of additional funding local schools are allocated to help off-set the tax revenue that is lost due to the tax exempt status of the federal property located in the school district. Simply equated, the more military dependent and federally connected students living in and reported by a school district, the more funding the district receives. It is recommended that parents discuss this information with their children so the children understand the importance of the

because of the ombudsman. I only wish that we could do more to recognize your character and your sacrifice.” Hoskins also stated that because of the volunteer efforts of ombudsmen, who fulfill a mission critical role without any financial compensation, the DoD saves an estimated $48 million every year based on what would have been spent to hire personnel to fill these roles. Capt. Janet Lomax, commanding officer of the Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC), said of her command ombudsman, Susan Gonzalez, “I am extremely proud of my ombudsman and the service she provides to the command.” Gonzalez is serving for the second time as an om-

survey and that they expect to receive a survey card when they are distributed in the schools. Important to note is that the personal data a person supplies on the survey cards is protected under the privacy law that is granted to the school district. So, heads up – be on the lookout for the Impact Aid cards. With the severe budget cuts that have come to the district schools, Impact Aid is a source of needed funds. When you receive your cards, be diligent to fill them out and get them back to the schools. If for some reason you do not receive a card, contact your child’s school.

The event was organized by Paul Maxwell, who serves as the ombudsman coordinator through the FFSC.

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

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students.

A right of passage for teens: The driver’s ed club By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

“Mom?! Where r u?!” my daughter texted at the end of her first driver’s education class. I pulled up to the community college parking lot 10 minutes late thanks to a long line at the commissary, only to find Anna standing there with three other teens, looking mortified. “O-M-G mom! What took you so long?” she said, hurriedly hopping into our old minivan. “Never mind that, so how was driver’s ed?” I asked. “Re-donk! I’m going to die if I have to sit in that class all week ... it is SO boring. The instructor is like a million years old and all he talked about was how to hold a steering wheel. Eight hours of hand and over hand. Like, seriously.” “Well, I’m sure the material will get more complex as the week progresses, and besides, the other kids in the class looked nice,” I offered in a feeble attempt to retrieve Anna from her free-fall into an abyss of negativity. “NO, mom. Most of the boys wear those flat-billed hats way up on the top of their heads, and other than one dweeby kid, the rest of the boys just look dumb.

How to submit a commentary

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 20 years (and running). She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. One girl is my age and has a baby. Another girl keeps saying she’s going to ‘cut’ someone, and the rest are kind of awkward.” Now, I was worried. But this

was the last summer session of driver’s ed before the start of the school year, so Anna had no choice but to go. In the days that followed, Anna became more entrenched in the micro-society that was developing out of her driver’s ed class. The forces of small group dynamics combined with the psychological effects of confinement, created an ironic camaraderie among the classmates. Having identified the teacher as their common enemy, the teen captives formed an underground alliance hell bent on graduating and getting the heck outta there. At 4 p.m. every day, while I waited for Anna to be released

from class, I would see the driver’s ed teacher, with a permanent smirk on his face, saunter out of the building toward his nondescript gold sedan. He wore drab Hawaiian-style shirts with khakis, and had a wispy comb-over that was an unnatural shade of Grecian Formula black. Clearly, he saw himself as a sort of celebrity amongst the driver’s ed students. Nothing but a scurvy little spider in the grand scheme of things, in the realm of the community college, this teacher had power, control, influence … and his own parking space. Every day on our drive home, Anna would report what had

happened in class. The first couple of days, she ranted about excruciating boredom. But things heated up mid-week, when at lunch, one of the girls admitted her romantic interest in one of the boys. The sophomoric revelation was welcome relief from the daily tedium, so the girls exploited this little tidbit of drama to make it last, going so far as writing the boy a giggly anonymous note from his “secret admirer.” “Werr is u, Boo?” I texted Anna from the parking lot on the last day of class. I got no response, but a few minutes later, like some kind of reenactment of the final scene in “The Breakfast Club,” the teens came streaming out of the community college entrance with their final test results in hand. I realized that, although they had initially defined each other in the simplest terms, the most convenient definitions – The Dweeb, The Cutter, The Teen Mom, The Dumb Jocks, The Awkward Girls, The Boys with High Hats, and our daughter, The Goofy Military Kid – these uncommon teens discovered that they shared a common goal. And by accepting their suffering and each other, they found what they were looking for in the first place: freedom.

Navy’s Triton unmanned aircraft completes first cross-country flight From Naval Air Systems Command

P

ATUXENT RIVER, Md. (NNS) – The MQ-4C Triton Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) arrived at Naval Air Station Patuxent River Sept. 18 after completing its inaugural cross-country ferry flight, bringing the Navy closer to delivering this new capability to the fleet. This flight marked the transition from initial flight test, which established basic safety of flight, to testing that will demonstrate Triton’s capability to perform operational missions in the maritime domain. “Today we brought Triton home to the center of research, development, test and evaluation for naval aviation,” said Rear Adm. Mat Winter, who oversees the Program Executive Office for Unmanned Aviation and Strike Weapons (PEO (U&W)) at NAVAIR. “The testing performed here over the next few years is critical to delivering a capability that will provide our warfighter an unparalleled awareness of the maritime environment in locations across the

globe.” Winter, along with the flight crew and members from the Triton’s Persistent Maritime Unmanned Systems Program Office Office (PMA-262), witnessed the historic landing at 7:53 a.m. During the approximately 11-hour 3,290 nautical mile flight originating from Northrop Grumman’s Palmdale, Calif., facility, the Triton flew along the southern U.S. border, the Gulf of Mexico and across Florida via an approved instrument route. Operators navigated the aircraft up the Atlantic Coast and Chesapeake Bay at altitudes in excess of 50,000 feet to ensure there were no conflicts with civilian air traffic. “The coordination to bring

the Navy’s largest unmanned asset across the country was significant and involved many organizations,” said Capt. Jim Hoke, PMA-262’s program manager. “This phenomenal team executed the system’s longest flight to date exactly as planned.” Hoke said this perfect execution was no surprise to him since the system has exceeded

performance standards during the course of the last year. Triton has completed 15 test flights prior to today's ferry flight, demonstrating its ability to operate at various speeds and altitudes. PMA-262 has scheduled Triton operations to start at Pax River within the next several weeks. The Triton integrated test team will conduct further

envelope expansion, sensor, communications and interoperability testing. “These are just a few of the many robust tests we will conduct over the next three years,” said Mike McDaniel, lead flight test director. Three Triton test vehicles will fly approximately 2,000 hours before achieving initial operational capability in 2017.

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (NNS) – The Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) co-hosted a suicide prevention webinar Sept. 15 in support of suicide prevention awareness month. The webinar, titled “Connecting the Dots: New and Updated Resources for Tailored Suicide Prevention Efforts,” was presented in collaboration with Navy Suicide Prevention, one of six individual policy branches of the Navy's 21st Century Sailor and Marine Initiative. More than 100 Department of the Navy attendees, including suicide prevention coordinators, chaplains, firstresponders and behavioral health providers, dialed-in for the training that focused on enhancing participant knowledge of evidenced-based suicide prevention tools. The Veteran’s Administration Safety Plan and the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale were identified as tools and best-practices to be used by clinicians and nonclinicians in a variety of settings to enhance Navy suicide prevention efforts.

NETSAFA hosts workshop for International Maritime Student Officers Story by Lt. Cmdr. Shelline Floyd NETSAFA Public Affairs

T

he Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) hosted the 25th Department of the Navy Maritime International Military Student Officer (IMSO) Workshop Sept. 16-19. The event provides a venue for Navy international programs, NETSAFA and other key participants to address the issues relative to this year’s focus: “Forward for enduring partnerships and back to basics.” The workshop is being held on behalf of the Navy International Programs Office (NIPO), and in cooperation with the U.S. Coast Guard Directorate of International Affairs and Foreign Affairs and the Marine Corps Security Cooperation Group. NETSAFA IMSO workshop coordinator Dave Babcock described the event as a workinglevel meeting for command personnel most involved with the administration of international military students (IMS) and the field studies program (FSP). “Over 200 military and civilian IMSOs and staffers will takeaway outstanding ideas to improve their international training programs,” said Babcock. “Participants are able to obtain information and share ideas on the latest security cooperation training policies and procedures, and discuss problems encountered in the management of inter-

national military students (IMS) with subject matter experts.” Kay Judkins from the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), the agency within the Office of the Secretary of Defense charged with execution of security assistance programs and security cooperation programs, highlighted the four goals of security cooperation programs for the workshop attendees: Contribute to partner and regional security; enhance military-tomilitary cooperation; enable interoperability; and develop lasting relationships between the U.S. and the partner countries. “The U.S. has a very large footprint all over the world,” said Judkins. “IMSOs play a very important role in gaining trust, access and support from our partners, and are key to our international success.” The keynote speaker for the workshop was the commander, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), Rear Adm. Mike White. “America’s Navy is at its best operating forward,” White said. “That presence gives our leader-

ship options, bolsters global stability through engagement with allies and partners, and builds trust and confidence. Through the efforts of NETSAFA, and especially the IMSOs, Navy training is building the foundations for successful partnerships.” White also presented six letters of commendation to the winners of the 2014 IMSO of the year award. Their names and IMSO service locations follow: Navy recipients were: FT1 Albert Roddy from Training Support Center Great Lakes, Ill., IMSO small command; Billy Martin from Naval School of Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Eglin AFB, IMSO medium command; and Kathleen Noyes, from Defense Resource Management Institute Monterrey, Calif., IMSO large command. Marine Corps recipient was: Sherl Gowen from the Marine

Corps Engineer School in Camp Lejeune, N.C. Coast Guard recipients were: Lt. Kristin Driscoll, from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn.; and GM1 John Kelly, from the Coast Guard Maritime Law Enforcement Academy in Charleston, S.C. The IMSOs of the year are recognized for their sustained superior performance in IMSO knowledge, dedication and innovation. To qualify for consideration, a nominee must be an IMSO or assistant IMSO with a minimum of one year in the position. “I’m definitely excited and appreciate that the Coast Guard took the time to write up this citation. I couldn’t have done any of these things if I didn’t have such good support in international program up the chain of command,” said Driscoll. She added, “This is an excellence chance to network

with other IMSOs, and get all the training centers together not only with the Coast Guard but with the Navy and Marines as well.” NETSAFA Commanding Officer Capt. Doug Heady told the workshop attendees that they are a vital part of the relationship with our partner nations. “Our international programs would not be possible without the exceptionally hard work of our IMSO’s,” said Heady. “They ensure successful training by verifying course prerequisites, security clearances, checking international travel orders for accuracy and a host of other critical duties. Last year, they handled more than 1,200 students from 156 countries in training with NETC commands. It’s a herculean task.” For more information about NETSAFA, visit https:// www. netsafa. navy. mil.

Whiting Field earns award for community service By 1st Lt. Nathan A. Boyar NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

NAS Whiting Field recently recieved the Navy’s 2013 Personal Excellence Partnership Award for the Medium Shore Category. Each year the Navy recognizes commands that engage in exemplary voluntary community service activities. The Navy Community Service of the Year Award Program (NCSP) made the announcement issuing the award in August. The purpose of NCSP, which issues the award won by NAS Whiting Field, is to recognize and provide opportunities for Navy military and civilian employees to volunteer for meaningful command-sponsored community service projects. NCSP identifies five award categories, or “flagships,” of excellence in community service: Personal Excellence Partnership; Health, Safety and Fitness; Campaign Drug Free; Project Good Neighbor; and Environmental Steward-

ship. To be considered for any award, a command must participate in at least three categories. NAS Whiting Field participated in the Personal Excellence Partnership, Project Good Neighbor and the Campaign Drug Free Flagship. The command was recognized for the Personal Excellence Partnership Flagship in particular. This flagship recognizes the best educational partnership program between a Navy command and school or youth service organization. The flagship sponsor for Personal Excellence Partnership is Commander, Naval Installations Command (CNIC). The program coordinator for NAS Whiting Field’s community outreach program is ABH1 Tywron Harris. Through his program, the NAS Whiting Field command population of more than 200 military and more than 100 civilian employees has served 8,179

hours of community service and helped 28,700 local community members. Harris not only was responsible for the nomination package that was chosen for the award, but also directly steered the command community towards the overall statistics that won the award for the base. NAS Whiting Field participated in a youth educational partnership with six programs to be highlighted for their award. The service partners were Escambia County Youth Sea Cadet Program, Big Brother/ Big Sister of Northwest Florida, Escambia School District, East Milton Elementary, Alberta Elementary and United Way of West Florida. “The purpose of our partnerships is to encourage the men and women of NAS Whiting Field to devote their time and experience to the local youths and community. It gives our military mem-

bers and civilian co-workers alike an opportunity to become positive role models and practice good citizenship,” said Harris. One of the community outreach partnerships that shined brightest was the Escambia County Youth Sea Cadet Program. Begun in 1998, this partnership accomplished events like a two week summer camp, cleaning up Mayo Park of Santa Rosa County Parks and Recreation, performing Memorial Day ceremonies, marching in the Veterans Day parade, highway cleanups and many more events. Along with the 2013 Community Service title, NAS Whiting Field will be recognized with an award plaque and certificate from CNIC and publicity through NAVY Volunteer! magazine. Most importantly, participation of the base population in the program has strengthened the bond between NAS Whiting Field command and the surrounding community.

Kling assumes command of TraWing-5 Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Robert Provencher NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Capt. James Fisher stepped down from Commodore Training Air Wing Five (TraWing-5) Sept. 19 during a change of command ceremony at the National Naval Air Museum onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. Fisher turned over his command of the Navy’s largest training wing to Col. Gary Kling, deputy commandant TraWing-5. This tour culminated Fisher’s 28 years of service. The guest speaker for the event was Marine Lt. Gen. Jon M. Davis, deputy commandant for aviation. Kling graduated from Arizona State University in 1987 and was an honor graduate at The Basic School. He was designated a naval aviator in the spring of 1990. He is a graduate of Navy Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN) and Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron One (MAWTS-1). Kling served as a F/A instructor pilot at MAWTS-1 in 1995. He has

Capt. James Fisher

flown with VMFA-232, VMFA134 and MAG-11. In April 2004, Kling served as the division air officer during Operation Iraqi Freedom II. Following a tour at the Pentagon, Kling assumed command of headquarters and headquarters squadron, MCAS Iwakuna, Japan. He is a distinguished graduate of the National War College and served in numerous staff assignments including the deputy chief of staff to Joint Forces Command and as the deputy branch head of HQMC Aviation Plans and Policy. Kling assumes command of

the Navy’s largest training air wing in the Naval Air Training Command, which is responsible for an estimated 43 percent of the Chief of Naval Air Training Command’s total flight time and more than 11 percent of Navy and Marine Corps’ flight time worldwide. More than 1,200 personnel complete their essential flight training through TraWing5 annually. Capt. Mark Murray becomes the new deputy commandant. Fisher is a 1987 Naval Academy graduate, who was designated a naval aviator in March 1989. This is his third tour at

NAS Whiting Field, where he earned his wings and served as a flight instructor from 1992 to 1995, being recognized as the 1994 Chief of Naval Air Training Instructor of the Year. He has flown with anti-submarine squadrons HSL-36, HSL-40, and HSL-42, as well as serving as the airboss on the USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6). Fisher also earned his master’s degree at the Naval War College, was the commanding officer of Training Squadron 28 in Corpus Christi, Texas, and served two tours at the Pentagon, the last as the warfighting support branch head before returning to Milton. During his leadership of three primary flight training squadrons, more than 1,500 student naval aviators (SNAs) graduated from the three primary flight squadrons under his command. His oversight of three primary flight squadrons and three TH-57B/C advanced rotary training squadrons culminated in the execution of more than123,000 sorties and 195,000 flight hours producing more than 765 airborne warriors for the

Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard and 11 allied nations. Fisher successfully negotiated contract and programs increases to meet student mission demand in his pursuit for training excellence, reflected in the CNATRA 2013 Standardization Evaluation where TraWing-5’s Training and Standardization departments received an overall grade of “outstanding” and the inspection team recognized 34 best practices at TraWing-5. The commodore established a multi-service mid air collision avoidance group that lowered the operational risk and increased the operational success of TraWing-5 and additional military partners. Fisher was also responsible for the first T-6B detachment that led to a productive, safe, efficient and innovative detachment that maximized the value of a nearly $1.1 million budget. The detachment established long-lasting goodwill between the military and the population of Roswell, New Mexico, blazing the trail for future detachments.

Child Support Military Divorce Criminal Defense DUI

Military Divorce Active Duty or Retired

We are located near Corry Station and NAS Pensacola. As a result, for 30 years we have handled problems that are unique to active duty and retired military service members. We are able to handle most issues where Florida has jurisdiction, which may include Initial Divorce proceedings, Spousal Support, Child Support, Modification, Visitation or Custody issues Contempt, Email or Teleconferencing. In cases of deployment, regarding court appearances, many occasions relevant to these issues (pursuant to the other sides agreement when necessary), you can testify by telephone and never have to physically be in Florida for the proceeding. Set forth below are a few of the issues that you may question regarding, whether you are active

duty, retired or the spouse of active duty or retire military. Child Support In calculating Child Support, in addition to your regular or retirement pay, the following pay is included: 1. Housing Allowance 2. Sea or Flight Pay 3. Retirement Pay 4. Social Security 5. V.A. Benefits (Yes, despite what others have told you, VA pay is included in child support calculations. Some of you will argue this point. Make an appointment and I will show you why it is included). You will still be governed by the child support requirements under the general Divorce/Child Support for the state of Florida. FYI: Based on the child support formula, it is almost always cheaper, if possible, to use day care.

A major problem which can affect both the payor and recipient of child support is when the support should begin. If you are involved in the initial Divorce proceeding the payor’s obligation begins, at the minimum, when the divorce is filed and/or you no longer live together with the child/children. The separation date may predate the filing of the divorce petition. You need an attorney’s advice to ascertain your obligation. If you wait until the final hearing, you may have to pay ongoing child support plus a court ordered amount each month to satisfy an arrearage plus interest. If you are active duty military, the JAG manual (navy page) will specify what you must pay to continue to support your family until further court order. A temporary hearing could reduce the amount of child support that you have been direct to may pay military orders or rules. If you are the spouse of an active duty military member, reservist or retiree, see Spouse/Military or

call for an appointment regarding the questions you may have. Retirement Alimony/Spousal Support In Florida, military retirement funds are an asset which is treated differently than other income related to Alimony/Spousal Support. The spouse of retired military personnel receives a pro rata share of the retirement funds. If the spouse remarries, the awarded share is still paid. If the military retiree dies, and an SBP is elected, it is still paid. You must make sure your lawyer uses the correct formula in order to establish the amount owed. DFAS has particular guidelines that must be met in order to accomplish the correct payment of spousal support.

NETPDTC’s 2014 Combined Federal Campaign kicks off; See page B2 Spotlight

GOSPORT

From U.S. Department of Labor Office of Public Affairs

What can YOU do?

eld each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. The theme for 2014 is “Expect. Employ. Empower.”

H

NDEAM’s roots go back to 1945, when Congress enacted a law declaring the first week in October each year “National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week.” President Harry S. Truman designated the President’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities to carry out the observance. In 1962, the word “physically” was removed to acknowledge the employment needs and contributions of individuals with all types of disabilities. In 1988, Congress expanded the week to a month and changed the name to “National Disability Employment Awareness Month.” Upon its establishment in 2001, the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) assumed re-

The purpose of National Disability Employment Awareness Month is to educate about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. Employers and employees in all industries can learn more about how to participate in National Disability Employment Awareness Month and ways they can promote its messages – during October and throughout the year – by visiting the ODEP website at www.dol.gov/odep/. ODEP’s mission is to provide national leadership by developing and influencing disability-related policies and practices to increase the employment of people with disabilities.

From http://www.whatcanyoudocampaign.org

You can support the Campaign for Disability Employment’s (CDE) “What can YOU do?” initiative and play an important role in improving employment outcomes for people with disabilities. “What can YOU do?” is a positive outreach initiative aimed at increasing the employment rate of people with disabilities by challenging common misperceptions. It sends a clear message: people with disabilities want to work and their talents and abilities benefit businesses both financially and organizationally. By implementing good workplace practices, such as maintaining a flexible and inclusive work environment, businesses can capitalize on the talents of qualified people with disabilities. All it takes is recognizing the value they add to the workplace and fostering a work culture welcoming of the talents of all individuals. Three things you can do: 1. Hire, retain and advance people with disabilities. Businesses that are inclusive of people with disabilities – in hiring, retention and advancement – benefit from a wider pool of talent, skills, and creative business solutions. Additionally, fostering a work environment that is flexible and open to the talents of all qualified individuals, including those with disabilities, actually promotes workplace success for everyone. 2. Be a mentor. Be a mentor by inspiring youth with disabilities to achieve their career aspirations. It is important that each individual is valued for his or her skills and talents, and that youth with disabilities are supported and encouraged to dream big when it comes to developing career goals. 3. Share the “can-do” spirit. Help us by telling others about the CDE and the “What can YOU do?” initiative. We encourage you to promote positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities in your business and community.

NETPDTC’s 2014 Combined Federal Campaign kickoff By Katrina Gergely NETPDTC Public Affairs

T

he Naval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center (NETPDTC) kicked off its Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), represented by Chrissy Wagner as activity chairperson, Sept. 15; the campaign runs through Dec. 15. “The kickoff event supporting this year’s theme ‘Helping Hands, Giving Heart’ will consist of a visit from the CFC mobile pledging van and a tailgate party by the welfare and recreation committee on Sept. 19,” said Chrissy Wagner, CFC activity chairperson. “It will allow for easy access to information between potential donors and CFC representatives about the supported charities and new features.”

One of the new features CFC offers this year is Universal Giving (UG), allowing donors to pledge to more than 34,000 charities located worldwide. The UG option is an example of the Office of Personnel Management’s desire to make federal workplace giving easy for employees and military. “Universal Giving is a great opportunity for military members and their supporting Department of Defense civilians to

establish donations with hometown non-profit organizations outside of their present location,” said Ron Denson, local CFC director. “The advantage of UG comes in when they transfer to

other locations, making it convenient to continue developing their philanthropic passions, while supporting the same nonprofit that they already have a relationship established with.” A charity list can be obtained by visiting the EscaRosa CFC site or by contacting an activity representative. Donating as little as $1 per pay period can buy school supplies for three children or a month of prescription medication for someone in need. An example of some of the local charities eligible for support from CFC donations and helping families in need is Support Our Troops and Covenant Hospice. “There are so many worthy causes that need our support,” said Capt. Janet Lomax, commanding officer, NETPDTC, “I care about people and the envi-

ronment. So, like most people, I am especially interested in contributing to charities that assist with causes near to my heart. I consider it a blessing to support those less fortunate than I.” CFC has vetted a listing of international, national and local charities that maintain required accountability standards on a yearly basis. These charities must certify that their promotional activities are non-deceptive, with no misleading claims, and that contributions are used for the promoted purposes of the charitable organizations.
