CNP visits NASP-area training commands From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

The chief of naval personnel (CNP) visited Naval Education and Training Command's (NETC) tenant commands aboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola Sept. 24. The visit marks Vice Adm. William F. Moran’s first visit to Pensacola as CNP. As he worked his way through the aviation and information dominance training pipelines, Moran addressed questions to Sailors and civilians on the current budget discussions taking place in Washington. He stressed that Navy leadership was focused on the situation and would continue to keep the fleet informed on the impacts of a potential government shutdown, continuing resolution and sequestration. “We have good people, from the CNO on down working these issues. We don’t know exactly how things will play out, but I need you to stay focused on your mission of training Sailors as we work through all of this,” said

Moran. “We will do our best to keep you and your families informed as we learn more and understand what the future holds.” One of Moran’s first stops was with senior air traffic control managers at this year’s Navy and Marine Corps Air Traffic Control (ATC) Leadership Continuum at the Naval Aviation School’s Command (NASC) auditorium. The admiral spoke to controllers about the importance of standing a professional and proficient watch. He specifically emphasized the need for integrity and character in proper watch standing. “Being on watch and standing watch around the world for our nation is fundamental to who we are as a Navy,” said Moran. “Central to our ability to stand that watch is trust – the trust we have in each other and the trust the nation places in us as a service.” CNP then visited Aviation Rescue Swimmer School (ARSS), where he spoke with students and instructors. ARSS’s intensive five-week program

Corry strikes LEED Gold with new CID ‘A’ School quarters Story, photo By Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

It’s a great feeling to go for the gold, and get it. So when Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) Southeast NAS Pensacola undertook the planning for a new bachelor enlisted quarters (BEQ) for NASP Corry Station Center for Information Dominance (CID) “A” School, energy enhancements were planned in mind to exceed a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification. The building was opened for occupancy at a ribbon-cutting Sept. 20, with NavFac, Navy command and construction officials present to hear the good news: the building made LEED Gold certification. “All dormitories after this will be modeled after this,” NASP Director of

(Left-right) NASP CID XO Cmdr. John Markley, Drace Construction Company President John Drace, NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins and NavFac SE PWD Public Works Officer Cmdr. Jeff Deviney cut a ribbon to open Corry Station’s latest BEQ, Bldg.1094. For more photos, see page A5.

Unaccompanied Housing and Lodging Terri Withee said. “What you’re going to see is the wave of the future.” The building made LEED Gold by achieving 46 LEED points for energy and waste diversion,

Withee said. Where three and four Sailors have sometimes been quartered to a room, the new facility features 166 two-person bedrooms in 83 sleeping “2 plus 0 modules” for a total occupancy of 332 students.

The first “2 plus 0 building” for dormitories in the Navy, the 2 plus 0 modules include space for two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two shower rooms, two lavatories, four closets, and two microwave/mini refrigerators. The energy-saving enhancements are where the building really shines. There is LED lighting on its exterior walkways, corridors and in public function areas. Rainwater is collected for landscape irrigation. There are highperformance windows and window treatments include solar shields. Motion sensors control lighting functions inside and there are geothermal ground source hot water systems, which use the earth as a heat sink, in place. Special spray-on insulation has been added at roof and exterior walls and even the parking lot has been treated to reduce

NavFac Southeast awards $11.5 million to small business By Earl Bittner NavFac Southeast Public Affairs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) Southeast awarded a $11.5 million task order Sept. 16 to Environmental Management Resources Inc., a small business based in Lawrence, Kan., to renovate and repair the Corry “A” School Bachelor Quarters (Bldg. 3707 and 3708) at Corry Station, Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. “This project will help alleviate student barracks overcrowding as we send a growing

number of Sailors through cyber warfare training at Corry Station,” said Public Works Officer Cmdr. Jeff Deviney, who will oversee the project in Pensacola.

The work to be performed includes interior demolition, minor structural repairs, sheet rock replacement on walls and ceilings, interior electrical repairs, interior plumbing replacement, installation of fire suppression system and detec-

cellaneous interior and site repairs. This is another contract award NavFac Southeast has provided to the small business community. NavFac Southeast continues to build on its success by providing contract opportu-

nities to small businesses. “It’s exciting to be part of a team that considers small business the first option to meet the NavFac Southeast mission,” said Nelson Smith, NavFac Southeast small business deputy. “In addition to providing the best return on the dollar for our taxpayers, every contract awarded to a small business also helps to keep our nation’s economic recovery.” Each year NavFac establishes target goals for Small Business, Small Disadvantaged Business, Historically Underutilized Business Zone Small Business, Service-Disabled Vet-

eran-Owned Small Business and Women-Owned Small Business categories. Smith explained that the maximum practicable utilization of small business concerns is a matter of national interest with both social and economic benefits.

Bridge at NAS Pensacola to undergo work Oct. 10 By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

Drivers could face traffic backups as they approach the main gate of Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Oct. 10. The southbound, right-side lane of Sam Lovelace Bridge, which spans Bayou Grande at the base’s main gate, is scheduled to be closed that day for maintenance work, according to Norman Feinberg, an engineering technician at NASP. NASP Public Works Department (PWD) is planning to have an electrical contractor do some trouble shooting on the west side of the bridge coming off of Navy Boulevard. The work is scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. Oct. 10 and the job may be finished by the end of the day. However, if all of the work cannot be accomplished in one day, then the bridge lane also will be closed starting at 7:30 a.m. Friday. Signage will be placed in the area prior to the lane closing to give drivers advance notice of possible traffic delays. While the work is under way, a NASP security vehicle is scheduled to be stationed at the entrance to the bridge blocking the right-hand incoming lane. For more information, call Feinberg on his cell phone at (850) 5545676.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White 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. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

The only way we are going to drive the numbers down and make a real impact is through leadership and active bystander intervention,” Moran said. “Fundamentally it comes down to leadership by example, setting the right climate and work environment, and comes down to not being afraid to step in when we see something that isn’t right.”

Plight of the geobachelor’s wife: Let him eat cake By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

A

fter nearly 20 years of marriage, my husband and I recently decided to

seperate.

No, he wasn’t having a midlife crisis, although he had become quite heavy-handed with his cologne lately. I was not feeling neglected, although his idea of a fun Saturday night was a game of dominoes and “House Hunters” reruns. No one was drinking excessively, although we were buying more lite beer than milk these days. There were no irreconcilable differences, although he never has learned how to use the remote. Really, we were quite happy. We just thought it would be best for the children if we went our separate ways for a while. You see, we’re a Navy family. And like all military families, we’re often faced with logistical dilemmas that force us to consider separation to preserve stability through transitions. In such circumstances, the entire family experiences the hardships of

temporary separation. However, the fringe benefits of such an arrangement are often unfairly dispersed. In other words – the husband totally makes out on this deal, every time. The last time we separated, I stayed in Germany to let the children finish the school year, while my husband moved ahead of us to Florida to start his new job. For four months before we flew to Florida to join him, my husband was a “geobachelor.” Sure, the geobachelor’s life can be a bit lonely, all holed up in the base hotel for weeks on end with nothing but work, gym, books, television and take out; but this temporary period of solitude offers the husband complete and utter freedom from the trappings of marriage and family life. While the wife and children are locked into a typical hectic family routine, the

Sports bar with the guys, or eat dinner at my workmate’s house (his wife

does make great lasagna after all)? Read another book, or watch the premium channels we don’t have at home?” Recently, my husband called from Florida. I left him there June 10 so the children and I could take the summer to get settled at our new duty station in Rhode Island before school started. “It’s hotter than blazes down here,” he said between sips of cold beer. “So, what have you and the kids been up to?” In excruciating detail, I vented to my husband about repairs being done to our base house, about needing money for our son’s textbooks, about trying to fit in with the neighbors, about the cable bill, about the dog having diarrhea at 3 a.m., about the mouse that ran across the family room. “Hold on honey,” he interrupted. In the background, I hear him say, “Sure, I’ll take another one of these, and how about the buffalo chicken wrap with onion rings?” As I heard him ask the waitress what she thought of the coleslaw, I wondered whether I could convince the children to eat popcorn again for dinner. “Where are you, anyway?”

I inquired, knowing that he had been staying with friends since he moved out of our old house. “Well, I wanted to get out of Calvin’s hair for the day, so I got a new book, went to the spa, and have been wandering around Fernandina Beach all afternoon,” he replied. “Wait, what? You went to a spa?” I said, looking at my nails, which were mangled from all the unpacking. “You knew I was planning to get my back waxed, honey,” he said defensively, “and I decided to treat myself to a massage too. ... Honey? You still there?” I was too busy wondering if I would ever get to extract myself from the never-ending hamster wheel of motherhood and family life, and feel the unbridled, rollicking, deliciously reclusive, self-indulgently relaxing experience of being a geobachelor. After a long pause, I finally responded, “Do they have chocolate cake on the dessert menu at that restaurant?” “Yeah, why?” my husband wondered. “Never mind, just order it, with a big scoop of ice cream on top,” I said. I guess someone’s gotta do it.

Sea turtles hatch onboard NASP Story, photos by Mark Gibson Navy Natural Resources Manager

D

uring three hot nights in late August, 82 loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings emerged from their historic nest on Barrancas Beach West under the watchful gleam of the Pensacola Lighthouse. The nest had been monitored since June 20 when Charles Sturm, a camper at Oak Grove Park, observed and reported the female turtle laying her eggs. Biologists from Gulf Islands National Seashore, National Park Service (NPS), were contacted to help mark and observe the nest during the two months of incubation required for the eggs to hatch. Navy and sea turtle watch volunteers made frequent trips to the nest location to ensure that the nest was not disturbed. In mid-August, Steve Blankman, a Navy Education and Training Command (NETC) employee who also serves as a NPS sea turtle volunteer, reported that he could hear the hatchlings in the nest as they emerged from their eggs and made their preparation to climb upward. NAS Pensacola’s Navy Natural Resources department quickly organized a group to assist the park service in watching and waiting for the baby turtles to emerge. Since the chances for survival are so low for turtle hatchlings – about a 1 in 1,000 chance of survival – the NPS decided to capture the hatchlings and take them to the Gulf for safe release. Finally, after several nights of turtle nest watching, the hatchlings were ready to come out and on Aug. 23 at dusk, the opening on the nest crumbled in

and “Alpha,” the first of the 82 hatchlings, came out of the nest looking for the closest trip to the water. Alpha got his wish. Captured along with his 81 brothers and sisters, he was released later that night into the Gulf at Fort Pickens. Loggerhead sea turtles are federally listed as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act, and NAS Pensacola is now officially part of the “recovery team” for this important species. Navy Natural Resources Manager Mark Gibson and Michael Hardy would like to thank everyone who participated in this historic event: Sea turtle team members Charles Sturm (who discovered and reported the nest); National Park Service representatives Mark Nicholas, Sandy Nicholas, Rebecca Carruth, Jay Bonnano and Mark Goto; Navy Pensacola volunteers Lori Hoskins, Steve Blankman, Candace Gibson, Winifred Jones and Asiah Jones; and Army Veterinarian Office representatives Army Capt. Laura Riddle and Jodi Hofer. Navy Natural Resources officials dedicated this nest and beach segment to Joseph Kane, who will always be in our hearts and minds as we continue to honor him and his short but productive life in the advancement of conservation on our base and in our area.

NASWF performs first sexual assault drill in CNIC Story, photo by Ens. Emily Hegarty NASWF PAO

Security personnel swarmed the walkways outside the Bachelor Enlisted Quarters at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) and emerged from a room flanking a suspect. Response counselors quietly spoke to the victim, and members of the chain of command were called in for special assistance or notification. The flurry of activity was all done under the watchful eyes of the Naval Air Station Whiting Field Advanced Training Team as part of the first sexual assault response drill done by the base and Commander, Naval Installations Command (CNIC). The drill, which began with the report of a male-on-male sexual assault, led the team through the full course of the response NASWF is prepared to take in the event an actual sexual assault is reported. “We’re the first base not only in the region, but in Commander, Navy Installations Command to conduct this type of drill,” Rudy Mendiola, training and exercise coordinator at NASWF, said when addressing the participants in the Sept. 18 sexual assault drill in the follow-on debriefing session. During the course of the mock altercation, the witness was alerted to the as-

sault by the yelling he heard from a nearby room. He quickly responded to the commotion and was informed by the victim of what had happened. When the victim indicated that he would like to file a report, the witness brought the victim with him to the nearest phone to call for help. Once the witness placed the 911 phone call, NASWF security personnel

quickly arrived on scene and apprehended the suspect. After separating the suspect and victim, both parties were questioned on-scene. The suspect was then brought to security headquarters where he was questioned in more detail by both security personnel and NCIS. The victim was brought to the Fleet and Family Service Center, where he

was interviewed by a clinician, informed of his options, and later brought to a victim advocate. “This drill is a way to assess the base’s initial response,” explained Sexual Assault Response Coordinator Kristen Klein. “Parties have been briefed to expect an exercise call, but not on what’s actually going to happen. It’s a whole system test to address any issues that we encounter, and offers a way for us to gauge our response procedures on both the security and SAPR victim advocate sides.” Klein recently returned from a 40hour training session focusing on SAPR issues and policy changes, and stated that no one at the conference had ever heard of a drill like this, which tests the sexual assault team’s readiness to respond to an incident. AC2 Lauren Haavisto, the NASWF on-call victim advocate, arrived on-scene and sat down with the victim to talk about the victim advocate program and all the support services available to him. She reviewed with the victim his reporting options, rights, privacy concerns and what he could expect regarding the trajectory of his case. She also provided the victim with supporting information to include phone numbers, victim resource centers, and other information that might be useful to a victim of sexual assault.

New commander promises to maintain success at HT-28 By Ens. Emily Hegarty NASWF PAO

Lt. Col. Jeff Pavelko accepted the reins of Helicopter Training Squadron 28 (HT-28) from outgoing CO Cmdr. Chris Pesile in a ceremony Sept. 20 at the Naval Air Station Whiting Field Atrium. The Rev. Doug Holmes gave the invocation and Training Air Wing Five Commodore Capt. James Fisher was the guest speaker. Fisher said that Pesile related during his exit interview that he was “leaving command with no regrets, and that he was

tired. That is precisely how a commanding officer should feel at the completion of a successful tour.” Under Pesile’s charge, HT28 performed more than 28,000 A and B level mishapfree flight hours, winged 240 aviators, graduated 28 intermediate tilt-rotor students and had the most efficient time to train of all advanced rotary squadrons. Members of the squadron also performed more than 900 hours of community service, and played a pivotal role in the Relay for Life event. Fisher challenged Pavelko with high expectations in the

wake of Pesile’s performance. “The responsibility for leading this great team is now yours,” Fisher said. “I challenge you to take this great team and make it even better.” Pesile spoke about his experience at HT-28. “No one has a successful command tour without a lot of help and support, and so I’d like to thank those of you here today who have helped me,” he said. He thanked Fisher and the organizers of the change of command ceremony, as well as his wife, family, friends and the Hellion community.

He noted that he was confident that the Hellions would be in great hands under the leadership of Pavelko. “Stay lucky” were his last words to the squadron as its commanding officer. Pesile’s next duty station will be as the air boss aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) in Sasebo, Japan. Pavelko welcomed Cmdr. Jeffrey Ketcham to HT-28 as executive officer. He thanked the MATSG-21 color guard for “bringing a touch of class to the ceremony” as well as friends and family who traveled to attend the

event. He also thanked Pesile “for handing off an exceptional squadron due to your exceptional leadership.” Pavelko pledged to continue on the same path. “I promise as your commanding officer that I will continue to give you the tools you need to succeed, in return I challenge you to continue to produce the highly qualified officers we have been producing,” he said At the end of the ceremony, Pavelko and Pesile exchanged the command pennant of the squadron and Pesile formally requested to be relieved.

National Disability Employment Awareness Month October is

‘Because we are EQUAL to the task’ From U.S. Department of Labor Office of Public Affairs

H

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 2013 is “Because We Are EQUAL to the Task.” 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 responsibility for NDEAM and has worked to expand its reach and scope ever since. 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. “When I was growing up, many people doubted what I could do just because I was blind. But because I had people in my life who instilled in me an expectation of work and showed me opportunities to be successful, I completed college and became known for what I can do,” said Kathy Martinez, assistant secretary of labor for disability employment policy when announcing this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month theme. 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.

Eighty-four shipmates, including spouses and family members, from the guided missile frigate USS Gallery (FFG 26) held their first reunion at Naval Air Station Pen-

sacola Sept. 13-15. The reunion attendees included 14 proud “plank owners,” the first three commanding officers, and a group from the 1996 decommissioning crew. The weekend reunion began with a noon to dusk picnic at Bayou

Grande Marina at NAS Pensacola and concluded with a dinner banquet, followed by a live auction of USS Gallery mementoes, the proceeds of which will be donated to the American Cancer Society, Navy Relief, Wounded Warrior Foundation and Healing Wa-

ters Fly Fishing charities. Principal reunion organizer, retired NC1 Mark E. Clark honored deceased shipmates by displaying their photos on a separate dining table at the banquet and a moment of silence was observed. Afterward, the commissioning com-

The original crew: Commissioning commanding officer retired Capt. Norman S. Scott is flanked by 13 plank owners of USS Gallery Sept. 14.

manding officer, retired Capt. Norman S. Scott spoke about the rich history of Bath Iron Works, Maine, and the quality ships which they have delivered, and continue to build for the United States Navy. USS Gallery, named for three brothers – Daniel, Philip and William Gallery, who all rose to the rank of rear admiral during World War II, was built at Bath Iron Works and was the 18th of the Oliver Hazard Perry class frigates. USS Gallery was commissioned in December, 1981 then home ported in Mayport. The ship conducted multiple deployments to the Persian

Gulf, as well as special operations in the Atlantic, Pacific and Caribbean theatres. USS Gallery was assigned to the Sixth Fleet battle group that retaliated for the Oct. 23, 1983 terrorist bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut. She was on station continuously for 52 days off the coast of Lebanon and Syria, 30 years ago next month. The next USS Gallery reunion is being organized for 2015 in Jacksonville. For further info see USS Gallery’s Facebook page at https:// www.facebook. com/ pages/ USS-Gallery/ 138200719533894.

This was the first reunion for USS Gallery shipmates. The ship was home ported at Naval Station Mayport, and served the U.S. Navy for 15 years. Decommissioned and stricken June 14, 1996, Gallery was transferred to Egypt Sept. 25, 1996 as Taba (F916).

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. Unrestricted reporting allows a victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services and safety interventions such as a Military Protective Order (MPO), separation from offender, expedited transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim can report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), SARC, and his/her CO shall commence an investigation.
