Gold Star mothers, families honored at NASP By Stephanie Hunter Special to Navy Installations Command Public Affairs
WASHINGTON (NNS) – Throughout history, bells have been used to announce a death or to express the gravity of an individual’s passing. They are struck to communicate the depth of sorrow and the extent of loss. On Sept. 22, in association with Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day, Navy installations across the continental U.S. participated in Bells Across America for Fallen Service Members where the names of the fallen were read and a bell tolled to honor and remember them. The Navy is proud to recognize the sacrifices of our fallen service members and the Gold Star families left behind through these coordinated ceremonies. Onboard NAS Pensacola, Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), in cooperation with the National Naval Aviation Museum (NNAM), conducted a Bells Across America for Fallen Service Members ceremony. The event, held at the NNAM, was conducted simultaneously across the nation and the names

which tells the story of losing her father and those of others whose fathers died in Vietnam. “It’s amazing to see how our installations are coming together
to remember our fallen,” said Lisa Bauch, Navy Gold Star Program analyst. “Many of our Navy bases from coast to coast are taking the time to pay tribute
to these heroes and their families.” Since 1936, the last Sunday in See Gold Star on page 2
NASP shows appreciation for its Navy ombudsmen By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer
There was a big turnout for the Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) ombudsman appreciation luncheon Sept. 21 at the Mustin Beach Club. The assemblage included 70 guests representing 14 commands. Rear Adm. Mike White, commander, Naval Education and Training Command, and his wife, Marietta, were seated
at the head table with NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Martin and his wife, Catherine. After calling for a round of applause for the 16 ombudsmen in attendance, Martin introduced White, who was the guest speaker. White recognized the command ombudsmen as the “unsung heroes” of the military team. “I have been blessed throughout my
career to have benefited from the hard work and dedication of many of these outstanding volunteers,” he said. “As a commanding officer, I relied on those professionals to keep our families informed and to help keep me up to speed on their issues and concerns.” White said he developed a deep appreciation for ombudsmen after witnessing them in action. As an example, he
told a story about the challenging circumstances that evolved when the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks took place as his strike fighter squadron was returning from an extended deployment. “Never have I witnessed such strength and resilience from my wife and our ombudsman as they selflessly dedicated themselves to the families despite their own internal turmoil,” he said.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher T. Martin 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. 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,

Shoot for the stars, eventually you will get there By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
or a period of my life, I had a briefcase, a secretary and a view from the 18th floor.
I thought I would practice law in a big firm for a while, then settle down to a quaint small town, where I would hang my own shingle like Matlock. (Sans the seer-sucker suit and sideburns, that is.) But, before I had a chance to climb another rung of the ladder toward success, I was packing up to move with my Navy husband to Washington, D.C., to Monterey, Calif., to Molesworth, England, to Norfolk, Va., and so on, and so on, and so on. Although military life has been exciting, rewarding and adventurous, it was the death knell for my career as a litigation attorney. My student loan bills rolled in month after month, year after year – however, not much else in our life went as expected. In 2010, our family was stationed in Germany, and with our three children at school, I yearned for something other than making sandwiches and cleaning toilets – something

that would challenge me intellectually. Something that did not require a license or a stable location. This is the plight of so many military spouses today. Earlier this year, Blue Star Families completed a study titled “Social Cost Analysis of the Unemployment and Underemployment of Military Spouses” and found that “military spouses face a staggering 18 percent unemployment rate compared to a national unemployment rate of 4.4 percent. More than half of those who do work face crippling underemployment – they are six times more likely to earn salaries below their education and experience level.” Regarding education, although the youngest group of military spouses lag behind their civilian counterparts, after the age of 25 “military spouses quickly catch up to and exceed the civilian level of education.” Regardless of educational
About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and you can read her blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. level, military spouses have more difficulty than civilians in finding meaningful employment due to “frequency of moves, inability to find employment that matched skill and education levels, inability to find employment that is
flexible enough to accommodate their military spouse’s schedule, child care issues, or stigmatization of the military lifestyle and the impact on employability.” Furthermore, the more education, the higher the income gap between military and civilian spouses. For those with a high school degree, civilian spouses earn 31 percent more than military spouses. For those with bachelor’s, master’s or professional degrees, the percentages increase to 40 percent, 47 percent and 45 percent, respectively. Despite the statistics, many determined military spouses still succeed. My own experience taught me that with courage, flexibility and stickto-itiveness military spouses can find rewarding careers. While I was in Germany and searching for something to do with those brain cells, I decided, after the Washington Post published an essay I had submitted, that I would become a syndicated columnist. With no journalism degree or experience in the newspaper industry, other than a neighborhood newsletter I created in 1977 (while I was in the 5th grade) that my mom photo-
copied and helped me deliver, I set my sights on becoming a military spouse columnist. For years, I worked hard to realize this ambition. I studied everything from submission guidelines to self-syndication tips to AP style. I created “The Meat and Potatoes of Life” concept, took my own head shot, and, one at a time, painstakingly submitted my column to military and civilian newspapers across the U.S. After seven years of rejections, hard work, and blind determination, I am proud to announce that this column, which appears in approximately 20 newspapers from Rhode Island to Virginia to California to Hawaii, has been picked up by the Grand Poobah of military publications — Stars and Stripes newspaper. My column will continue to appear in your newspaper and on my blog, but as of Sept. 30, it will now reach U.S. military families at home and abroad. I may not have realized my vision of hanging a shingle on my own law practice, but I now dream of using humor and honesty to spread the message that, no matter how hard military life gets, you are not alone, and you can do this.

Black Dart exercise off Panhandle coast testing Navy’s counter-UAS capabilities Story, photo by MC1 Maddelin Angebrand
ULF OF MEXICO (NNS) – Guided-missile destroyers USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109) and USS Lassen (DDG 82) tested counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) capabilities during exercise Black Dart off the coast of Destin Sept. 20. The exercise provides a venue where participants from industry, government and operational forces can bring different systems together, share awareness of the latest developments in CUAS capabilities, and train, evaluate and improve upon current systems. “We got a lot of work accomplished yesterday (Sept. 22) validating and experimenting with new systems that we have,” said Cmdr. Kevin Hoffman, Jason Dunham’s commanding officer. “Overall, the communication across all the Department of Defense agencies and different entities that we have here has been great. We have the opportunity to employ some systems that we have not tested before, so it’s a great experience for not only the ship, but the outside operators as well.” Black Dart scenarios pro-
vided a realistic training environment for both Jason Dunham and Lassen to track UASs launched from Eglin Air Force Base. In the initial scenarios, routes of the UASs were known to all operators, which allowed all systems, linked operators and sensors the ability to verify system settings and operator procedures. In advanced scenarios, routes of UASs were unknown, which increased the realistic aspect of the training. “The goal here is to test our organic sensors radar systems, camera systems and interface with the shore side (operators) who are testing systems for the same purpose,” said Lt. Cmdr. Carl Poe, the combat systems officer aboard Jason Dunham. “We want to communicate and coordinate to expand our battlespace and reduce reaction time we have from detection to engagement of these UASs.”
Cadet 1st Class Hanson Oxford, a student at the U.S. Air Force Academy, operates an unmanned aerial system aboard a rigid hull inflatable boat during exercise Black Dart. Black Dart is the largest Department of Defense (DoD) live-fly, live-fire, counter-unmanned aerial systems (c-UAS) technology demonstration.
Air Force cadets from the U.S. Air Force Academy operated UASs from Jason Dunham’s rigid hull inflatable boat about two nautical miles away from Jason Dunham, providing an opportunity for the cadets to test the UASs in a maritime environment and allowing Jason Dunham opportunities to test sensor and tracking systems from different ranges and elevations. “Great job to the Air Force
cadets with their first time operating a quad-copter in an atsea environment, and landing it in a two-foot by two-foot space,” said Hoffman. “It allowed us to test our detection capabilities, and evaluate our tactics, techniques and procedures, which is what Black Dart is allowing us to focus on.” Exercise Black Dart is planned, coordinated and overseen by the DoD’s Joint Inte-
grated Air and Missile Defense Organization and is sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The exercise is fully nested within the Chairman’s Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense Vision 2020.

• 241 years of history and heritage • America’s Sailor: Tough, bold and ready •
Famous Navy quotes: Who said them and when From Naval History and Heritage Command
t follows then, as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious.” – President George Washington, Nov. 15, 1781, to Marquis de Lafayette.
“I have not yet begun to fight!” Capt. John Paul Jones said this during the famous battle between Bonhomme Richard and Serapis Sept. 23, 1779. It seems that some of Jones’ men cried for surrender, but not John Paul Jones. Capt. Richard Pearson of Serapis asked Jones if he had surrendered. Jones uttered the immortal words: “I have not yet begun to fight!” So, at least, Lt. Richard Dale later recalled. “I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast, for I intend to go in harm’s way.” Capt. John Paul Jones, Nov. 16, 1778, in a letter to le Ray de Chaumont. “Don’t give up the ship!” Tradition has it that Capt. James Lawrence said these heroic words after being mortally wounded in the engagement between his ship, the U.S. frigate Chesapeake, and HMS Shannon June 1, 1813. As the wounded Lawrence was carried below, he ordered “Tell the men to fire faster! Don’t give up the ship!” “We have met the enemy and they are ours ...” Oliver Hazard Perry’s immortal dispatch to Maj. Gen. William Henry Har-
rison after the Battle of Lake Erie, Sept. 10, 1813, “We have met the enemy and they are ours – two ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop.” The victory secured the Great Lakes region for the United States and ended the threat of invasion from that quarter. “Damn the torpedoes, Full speed ahead!” Adm. David Glasgow Farragut (1801-1870). Aboard Hartford, Farragut entered Mobile Bay, Alabama, 5 August 1864, in two columns, with armored monitors leading and a fleet of wooden ships following. When the lead monitor Tecumseh was demolished by a mine, the wooden ship Brooklyn stopped and the line drifted in confusion toward Fort Morgan. As disaster seemed imminent, Farragut gave the orders embodied by these famous words. He swung his own ship clear and headed across the mines, which failed to explode. The fleet followed and anchored above the forts, which, now isolated, surrendered one by one. The torpedoes to which Farragut and his contemporaries referred would today be described as

tethered mines. “A good Navy is not a provocation to war. It is the surest guaranty of peace.” President Theodore Roosevelt, Dec. 2, 1902, second annual message to Congress. “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!” Navy Lt. Howell Maurice Forgy, serving in the heavy cruiser USS New Orleans (CA 32) during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941, is credited with coining the phrase. Forgy saw the men of an ammunition party tiring as they labored to bring shells to the antiaircraft guns. Forgy decided that he could add his moral support to
the ammunition bearers through words of encouragement, and so patted the men on the back and said, “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!” “Take her down!” Cmdr. Howard Walter Gilmore, badly wounded and unable to climb back into his submarine, USS Growler (SS 215), in the face of an approaching Japanese gunboat. “The battle of Iwo Island (Jima) has been won. The United States Marines, by their individual and collective courage, have conquered a base which is as necessary to us in our continuing forward
movement toward final victory as it was vital to the enemy in staving off ultimate defeat ... Among the Americans who served on Iwo Island, uncommon valor was a common virtue.” Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, March 17, 1945. “I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: ‘I served in the United States Navy.’” President John F. Kennedy, Aug. 1, 1963, in Bancroft Hall at the U.S. Naval Academy.

NASWF honors fallen heroes with ‘Bells Across America’ By Lt.j.g. Sarah O’Shea NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) celebrated the second annual Bells Across America event to honor fallen service members and their families. The NASWF Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) hosted the memorial service at the installation’s chapel Sept. 22. The ceremony recognized the continued sacrifice of local families who have lost loved ones while on active duty. Darryl Johnson, the event coordinator, served as the master of ceremonies for the occasion. NASWF Command Chaplain Lt. Cmdr. Michael Griggs opened with a prayer followed by the installation’s Commanding Officer Capt.
Todd Bahlau’s remarks to welcome guests. Bahlau paid tribute to those fallen and to the families who continue to live with the hardship of life without their loved ones. Next, ABH1 Terrance Wever read the names of the service members: Capt. William Yeager, Lt. Clinton Wermers, Senior Chief Petty Officer Anthony Houchin, Chief Petty Officer David Phelps, Petty Officer 1st Class James Curnutt, Petty Officer 1st Class Richard Wheeler, Petty Officer 1st Class Diego

Lopezzenquis, Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Barberio, Petty Officer 2nd Class Ricky Stevens, Petty Officer 3rd Class William Mirabal, and Seaman James Derek Lovelace. Following each name, ABH2 Matthew Siembida rang a large brass bell in remembrance. After the end of the reading of the names, Siembida rang the bell four times in remem-
brance of all those who have died in the line of duty. When asked about the importance of the memorial, Wever stated, “It’s an honor to pay tribute to those who paved the way before I came.” The memorial service evolved from the Navy Gold Star (NGS) Program, which got its name and mission from an early 20th century group of
mothers. During World War I, mothers of fallen service members began to wear a gold star to commemorate the loss of their children. The first formal group of Gold Star Mothers met in 1928 and the District of Columbia legally recognized the group in 1929. Throughout the 20th century the group spread to multiple states and later became a national organization.
Commander, Navy InCommand stallation (CNIC) established the NGS program to support families of deceased military members Oct. 1, 2014. The program connects the family to the greater military family via support systems such as the FFSC. The support centers offer financial counseling, employment information, referral to local programs, and emotional support and counseling for each family. The NGS Southeast Region was the first one to host Bells Across America ceremonies last year. Due to its success, all five NGS regions celebrated the ceremony this year Sept. 22. The last Sunday of September is designated as Gold Star Mothers’ Day. Describing the event, regional NGS coordinator Rufus Bundridge said, “(The ceremony) is to let the families know we are not forgetting their loved ones and to honor their names.”
Navy Ombudsmen: making a difference By Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
September is Ombudsman Appreciation Month, a time to honor the vital role ombudsmen have in connecting military families with important information, resources, and assistance they need while on U.S. Navy duty stations. Navy spouses face challenges during times of transition and stress and it is important that spouses have someone available to help them through these challenging times. During this designated month it is imperative installation leadership recognize the efforts of the Navy ombudsmen for their support roles to the military families. Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) held an appreciation luncheon last week for area ombudsmen including the command, Training Air Wing
Five and squadron individual ombudsmen to express the gratitude and appreciation for their commitment to the position. Each ombudsman was presented with a certificate of appreciation and a gift. N A S W F CMDCM Lee Stephens spoke at the event. “We value our ombudsman and appreciate all the dedication that Samantha Hill and all our ombudsmen do to support the Navy spouses,” Stephens said. “What you do makes a huge difference for our Navy families.” Ombudsmen help disseminate information up and down the chain of command, provide resources to family members, advocate for families, and serve as an all-around “go-to” resource
for support to the family members. The ombudsmen have a variety of information and resources, from the simple, such as where a new Navy family can find a good dentist, to the critical, like crisis intervention assistance to share when needed. This is vitally important for many family members who are new to Navy life or may be settling into a new duty station. Navy ombudsmen are volunteers hand-picked by the commanding officer to serve as the liaison for information between Navy families and command leadership. The ombudsman is usually a spouse of an activeduty service member that has experience and knowledge as a Navy spouse.
“The ombudsman is the link that connects the families to the command as an additional entity with many resources. It’s someone that a family member or spouse can turn to for help, a shoulder to cry on or vent to, or simply to get information about the base or the area,” NAS Whiting Field Command Ombudsman Samantha Hill said Former Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) retired Adm. E.R. Zumwalt Jr. formed the Navy Family Ombudsman Program more than 46 years ago to develop better communication between commands and the families of Sailors who serve. Another former CNO, retired Adm. Michael G. Mullen, reemphasized the importance of the program and signed an updated instruction in 2006 highlighting the requirement that all Navy families have access to a
Navy Family Ombudsman due to the vital role ombudsmen play in information dissemination and support to the Navy spouses. NASWF ombudsman Hill finds her job rewarding. “I love being an ombudsman. I remember being in a situation when my husband first enlisted and deployed,” Hill said. “I was 3,000 miles away from my family and had a newborn. I was beyond lost. “But it was an ombudsman that approached me and offered her help. It was then and there that I decided I wanted to be that helping hand,” Hill said. “I love helping other people in their time of need.” Information regarding the Navy Ombudsman Program can be found at http://www. cnic.navy.mil/ffr/family_readiness/fleet_and_family_support_program/ombudsman_pro gram.html

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month What you need to know: From Centers for Disease Control and Prevention http://www.cdc.gov
ancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms. A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Most women who are 50 to 74 years old should have a screening mammogram every two years. If you are 40 to 49 years old, or think you may have a higher risk of breast cancer, ask your doctor when to have a screening mam-
mogram. Some things may increase your risk: If you have risk factors, you may be more likely to get breast cancer. Talk to your doctor about ways to lower your risk and about screening. Reproductive risk factors: • Being younger when you had your first menstrual period. • Never giving birth, or being older at the birth of your first child. • Starting menopause at a later age. • Using hormone replacement
Breast Cancer awareness events • MWR’s Fun Run: Put on your running shoes for the fifth annual Breast Cancer Awareness 5K Fun Run at 8 a.m. Oct. 14 at Radford Fitness Center. The run is open to all ages. Costumes are encouraged. Registration is free at the Radford Fitness Center. For more information call 452-9845. • Baptist Health Care and Pensacola Honda have scheduled the 7th annual Bras Across the Bridge event for 8 a.m. Oct. 1. Breast cancer survivors, their loved ones and the community are invited to join together to increase breast cancer awareness. Beginning at 8 a.m., participants can park and register at The Grand Marlin on Pensacola Beach. At 9 a.m. the crowd will make its way across the bridge. The cost to participate is $20 per person plus the donation of a new bra. The first 300 people who register will receive a T-shirt. Funds raised will be donated to Baptist Health Care Foundation’s Mammogram Fund. To donate or register, go to BaptistHealthCareFoundation.org. For more information, call Heather Moorer or Maegan Leonard at 469-7906.
therapy for a long time. Other risk factors: • Getting older. • A personal history of breast cancer, dense breasts, or some other breast problems. • A family history of breast cancer (parent, sibling, or child). • Changes in your breast cancer-related genes (BRCA1 or BRCA2). • Getting radiation therapy to the breast or chest. • Being overweight, especially after menopause. Symptoms: Some warning signs of breast cancer are: • A lump or pain in the breast. • Thickening or swelling of part of the breast. • Irritation or dimpling of breast skin. • Redness or flaky skin on the breast. • Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area. • Fluid other than breast milk from the nipple, especially blood. • A change in the size or the shape of the breast.
Other conditions can cause these symptoms. If you have any signs that worry you, call your doctor right away. If you think you are at higher risk, talk to your doctor. Your doctor may refer you to a genetic counselor, recommend that you get screened earlier and more frequently, and consider medicines or surgeries that can lower your risk. You have an average risk of getting breast cancer at a young age if the risk factors listed don’t apply to you. If you are at average risk, it is important for you to know how your breasts normally look and feel. Talk to your doctor if you notice any changes in your breasts. Aside from genetics, little is known about what causes breast cancer in women younger than 45 years of age.
Gosling Games Color Me ‘Pink is for hope’
What can I do to reduce my risk of breast cancer? Many factors can influence your breast cancer risk, and most women who develop breast cancer do not have any known risk factors or a history of the disease in their families. However, you can help lower your risk of breast cancer in the following ways: • Keep a healthy weight. • Exercise regularly (at least four hours a week). • Don’t drink alcohol, or limit alcoholic drinks to no more than one per day. • Avoid exposure to chemicals that can cause cancer (carcinogens). • Try to reduce your exposure to radiation during medical tests like mammograms, X-rays, CT scans, and PET scans. • If you are taking, or have been told to take, hor-
mone replacement therapy or oral contraceptives (birth control pills), ask your doctor about the risks and find out if it is right for you. • Breastfeed your babies, if possible. Can’t afford a mammogram? If you have a low income or do not have insurance and are between the ages of 40 and 64, you may qualify for a free or low-cost mammogram through CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program.

One-to-one help is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Does it just sound too good to be true? Well, it isn’t. Many people consider tutoring just for math homework. But Tutor.com provides tutors to help in all the core subjects. Here are some examples:
About Tutor.com Check out these YouTube videos to see how Tutor.com works: • www.youtube.com/watch?v= BZLILkaiXXM&feature=share& list=TLhtbKF65XsHM. • www.youtube.com/watch?v= g3VnZ8EVA8Q&feature=share& list=PLsfPyukV1bQ3ZX1CmS3s yAmatYm_pGzWD.

struction Period of American history, a tutor can help with that. Now, you need help with resources. Too many students today depend on the internet as though it is the end all and be all of source material.

A tutor can help with that, too. • Chemistry: Need help balancing those equations? Sign in with the tutor. • Mathematics: As a parent have you have probably heard something like this, “but my teacher doesn’t do it that way.” Then the child bursts into tears. My favorite endorsement of Tutor.com came from a student at a local elementary school. The young man reported to me, “I just love Tutor.com. Whenever my dad helps me
with math, he makes me cry. But my tutor never does.” What more do you need to hear to convince you to try out this great, free tutoring service. Do you find that a particular tutor is really helpful? Maybe one tutor is more helpful with math and another is more helpful with essay writing, request that tutor when you sign in. Now that the school year is upon us, try out the program now. Don’t wait until 11 p.m. on a Tuesday night with a huge science test the next day to sign in for the first time. Take my advice and check it out today. I promise you will be glad you did. Carissa Bergosh is the school liaison officer for NAS Pensacola.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner 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 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. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
