DoN COOL offering civilian credentialing for Marines By Carla M. McCarthy Center for Information Dominance PAO

The Marine Corps Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL) program is well underway, providing Marines a way to take the skills they have learned on the job and translate them into civilian credentials. The program reached an initial milestone with the funded credentialing of its first Marine July 30. Since then, 108 Marines have applied, and of those 21 have obtained credentials. Comparable to its Navy counterpart, Marine Corps COOL is a resource for Marines through the Department of Navy (DoN) COOL program, part of a joint-service initiative to promote civilian credentialing opportunities for military service members. Staff Sgt. Robert Nelson Jr. was the first to receive funding through Marine Corps COOL to cover the costs for a leadership certification exam in the business and

management consulting field. “What the certifications mean to me in and out of the Marine Corps is they show my employers that I’m always pursuing higher education, I’m seeking self-improvement, and that I’m qualified to do the job,” said Nelson, administration chief for the Marine Detachment at Naval Air Station Pensacola Corry Station. Since completing the leadership certification, he is pursuing another certificate for operations management. Established in October 2014, Marine Corps COOL partnered with Navy COOL, which has provided credentialing information and opportunities for Sailors since 2006. “We are proud to be partnering with the Marine Corps and sharing lessons learned,” said Keith Boring, Navy COOL program manager. “Together we are demonstrating efficiencies with best practice, best intent for the government, as

October is Energy Awareness Month: ‘Too hot? Cold?’ From Navy Energy Team

Anyoney who has performed energy surveys in work spaces has heard these cries for help. Due to differences in human metabolism, sometimes people who sit right next to each other have the opposite complaint. Another interesting human variable: some people want to turn the heat up to 72 degrees in the winter and turn the air conditioning down to 68 degrees in the summer. That just doesn’t make sense.

The Navy has energy efficiency standards that apply to space temperatures: Cool to no lower than 78 degrees, and heat

The best things you can do if you are too warm or too cold are (1) dress in layers and (2) let your supervisor and facility energy monitor know about your issues.

Fire Prevention Week: Oct. 4-10 From Craig Lewis Fire Prevention Chief, Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast

NASP marks Ombudsman Appreciation Day Sept. 14 ... NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) invited each command and command ombudsman to participate in its annual Ombudsman Appreciation Event Sept. 14. “Almost 40 participants took part in this celebratory event, culminating with (NASP CO) Capt. Keith Hoskins (above, center) signing the Ombudsman Proclamation and a group photo of the ombudsmen that attended,” said Paul Maxwell, FFSC Education Services facilitator/ombudsman coordinator. Ombudsmen are professionally trained information and referral volunteers who serve as a vital two-way communication link between the command and family members. Photo by Jason Bortz

Autumn is here again and it’s time to review your fire prevention safety plans – though fire prevention safety should be a year-round process and way of life. Our program theme this year is “Hear the BEEP where you SLEEP – Every Bedroom Needs A Working Smoke Alarm.”

Fire Prevention Week runs Oct. 4-10. As we review some items I want you to consider getting “back to the basics” – by this I mean, what have you done recently to educate yourself and your family? How about that monthly smoke detector test? Have you ensured their working condition, and if they are linked when you test one do they all activate and have you

well as best opportunities for the service member.” Just like Navy COOL, Marine Corps COOL offers Marines information about civilian credentials related to their military occupational specialty (MOS) and how to attain them. It can also help Marines stand out within their professional field and prepare for the civilian workforce. “Our Marines have greatly benefited from COOL and are excited about their Military Occupational Specialties translating into civilian credentials,” said Cassandra Coney, COOL program manager, United States Marine Corps. “The virtual tool has been an excellent platform in navigating through a Marine’s life cycle of recruiting, retention, and transition.” From the DoN COOL web portal, Sailors and Marines can search servicespecific websites for certifications they may be eligible for by selecting their enlisted rating or MOS and occupation. Requirements and available resources are provided with information consolidated from federal, state and local sources on certifications, licenses, apprenticeships and growth opportunities. “The Marine COOL website has credentials that map to every MOS in the Marine Corps, from infantry to food service to information technology,” said Staff Sgt. Jonathan Kennedy, a special intelligence system administrator close to receiving his fifth certification. “It would benefit every Marine to at least visit the website to research what certifications are being offered in their occupational specialty, so they can build a road map for their future.” DoN COOL is an example of the Navy’s ongoing commitment to Sailors and Marines in providing world-class training, experience, and opportunities that will serve them well on active duty and as future veterans when they decide to transition to civilian life. “When I enter the civilian work force, I will already have a huge advantage over other potential employees because of the combination of work experience in the military and the industry certifications I have earned,” said Kennedy. “These certifications from various credentialing agencies have a direct link to how much earning potential I have as a civilian and how much responsibility I will be given as well.” The Navy and Marine Corps COOL offices are located at the Center for Information Dominance (CID) based at Corry Station, part of Naval Air Station Pensacola. CID is the Navy’s learning center that leads, manages and delivers Navy and joint forces training in information operations, information warfare, information technology, cryptology and intelligence. With nearly 1,300 military, civilian and contracted staff members, CID provides training for approximately 24,000 members of the U.S. armed services and allied forces each year. CID oversees the development and administration of 226 courses at four commands, two detachments, and 10 learning sites throughout the United States and Japan.

Exclusive showing of ‘The Last Man on the Moon’ at the National Naval Aviation Museum Nov. 4 From E.W. Bullock Associates

To salute a former naval aviator and NASA astronaut, the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation is hosting The Last Man on the Moon Gala Nov. 4 at 6:15 p.m. at the National Naval Aviation Museum located onboard NAS Pensacola. Retired U.S. Navy Capt. Eugene Cernan, an electrical engineer, aeronautical engineer, fighter pilot and NASA astronaut, became the 11th and last man to leave his footprints on the surface of the moon in December, 1972. Cernan launched into space three times: in June of 1966 as the pilot of Gemini 9A, as the Lunar Module pilot of Apollo 10 in May of 1969, and as commander of Apollo 17 in 1972, the final Apollo lunar landing. “The Last Man on the Moon,” a new documentary by Mark Stewart Productions, combines rare archive material, compelling visual effects and unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to present an iconic historical character on the big screen. The documentary unveils a wealth of unique footage, and takes Cernan back to the launch pads of Cape Kennedy, to Arlington National Cemetery, and to his Texas ranch, where he

We all can relate to SAPR training and awareness By Jill V. Loftus Director, Department of the Navy Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office


ecently, I had the opportunity to attend and speak at the National Sexual Assault Conference in Los Angeles as part of the Military Track session “Inside the Armed Services: Sexual Assault Response and Prevention as a National Priority.” The conference was kicked-off by high-level representatives from the White House, Department of Justice, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and was attended by more than 1,500 people. My involvement in the conference was a strategic opportunity to share the breadth and dimension of the Navy’s various Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) efforts as well as learn from the achievement of others in the field. Alongside my colleagues from the Department of Defense and the other services (Army, Air Force, Navy, USMC and Coast Guard), we focused our presentations on recent accomplishments in the areas of victim support and sexual assault prevention. My office organized and moderated the two Military Track sessions that centered on victim support and prevention. Through the course of the conference, I wanted to emphasize that addressing sexual assault requires multiple, simultaneous efforts that include, but are not limited to, interactive SAPR training in multiple settings,

How to submit a commentary

Sailor mentoring, anti-alcohol programs, restructured liberty hours, consistent and repeated leadership messaging, highly visible leadership engagement, and coordination with law enforcement. One of the areas I focused on sharing with my colleagues was our strategy of using the “InterACT” Bystander Intervention training, which has to-date been attended by more than 52,000 Sailors and Marines worldwide. Sailors and Marines learn victim empathy and necessary skills to intervene in volatile situations that could lead to sexual assault. We are also working with Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWC TSD) in Florida to develop a new and innovative way to employ interactive bystander training via virtual reality for Marines. In an ef-

fort to address concepts of consent, incapacitation, and healthy relationships, we are collaborating with stakeholders to develop a scenario-based graphic novel aimed at raising awareness in these areas. Also, a video library of online training modules will soon be available fleetwide that will facilitate ease of access for ashore and afloat units alike. In addition to sharing with my SAPR colleagues what the Navy is doing to promote bystander intervention and other specific sexual assault prevention strategies, I took the opportunity to see some of the innovative programs being implemented by the other military services such as: special victim counsels and prosecutors; building facilities that house comprehensive services and resources for sexual assault survivors in one location; deployed resiliency counselors; uniformed victim advocates; SAPR crisis intervention teams; bystander intervention campaigns; and leadership prevention summits. In the company of my colleagues, it quickly became clear that the military, colleges and universities and other civilian communities are confronted with similarly complicated SAPR issues. Common themes discussed across the conference were addressing the

myth that false reports are common; victim blaming; maintaining victim privacy; retaliation following a reported sexual assault; difficulty in prosecuting and convicting sexual assault offenders; the role of alcohol in sexual assault incidents; and engaging more men in sexual assault prevention efforts — all issues that the military confronts as well. Additionally, I was pleased to see the progress in the realm of victim support programs. Survivors of sexual assault, both in the military and civilian institutions, more than ever, seem to have a multitude of resources to assist with trauma recovery. These include services that address the psychological, physical, and emotional outcomes related to being sexually assaulted such as individual and group counseling, spiritual and religious support, yoga, meditation, journaling, and other artbased therapy. Conference presenters shared numerous stories of survivor empowerment and examples of lives that have flourished as a result of the pioneering trauma recovery approaches now available. As I reflected on the conference, I heard and saw many themes that ring true across the spectrum of military services and civilian environments alike. In the aggregate, it’s about understanding that SAPR training and awareness is not just about preventing sexual assault, it’s about basic human consideration – it’s about taking care of one another, and that’s something we all can relate to.

October is Energy Awareness Month From Sabrina Williams Installation Energy Manager NAVFAC SE PWD Pensacola

We first set aside a time to remind us about saving energy in 1981 with American Energy Week. On Sept. 13, 1991, President George Bush proclaimed October as Energy Awareness Month. The Department of the Navy has long been conducting energy awareness campaigns that promote the wise and efficient use of energy. Our nation can benefit from the wise use of energy at federal facilities. As the single largest domestic user of energy, the federal government spends more than $9 billion to power its vehicles, operations, and approximately 500,000 facilities throughout the United States. Efficient energy management at federal facilities: • Saves taxpayer dollars • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions

• Protects the environment and natural resources • Contributes to our national security In addition, regulations like the Energy Policy Act of 2005 require federal agencies to meet a number of energy and water management goals. With so many major global challenges tied to energy use, including air pollution, climate change, volatile fuel supplies and costs, aging energy infrastructure and reliance on fossil fuels, it makes sense to choose energy efficiency as a basic work ethic and lifestyle. During Energy Awareness Month and throughout the year, we must all remember that saving energy is an individual priority and focus and that we can safeguard our energy infrastructure and reduce our carbon footprint in all that we do through simple choices and attention to energy efficiency.

SecNav comments kick off Energy Awareness Month Navywide From Secretary of the Navy Public Affairs


he president has proclaimed October 2015 to be Energy Action Month. The Department of the Navy’s (DoN) theme this year is, “Power. Presence.” • The mission of the Navy and Marine Corps is to provide the global presence necessary to ensure stability, to deter potential adversaries, and to present options in times of crisis. Energy is critical to our ability to provide that presence. That is why we are transforming our energy culture – to make us more effective, more agile, and better protected. Diversifying our energy supplies and optimizing our energy use make us better warfighters by ensuring we have the energy we need, when and where we need it. • Over the past six years we have made significant progress. We are deploying new technologies that help us save energy on our ships, airplanes, and expeditionary systems. We are giving our Sailors and

Marines the tools to make smart energy decisions that increase our reach and capability. We have certified our ships and aircraft to operate on drop-in advanced alternative blends, diversifying our options and providing operational flexibility. By the end of this year, we will have one gigawatt of renewable energy in the procurement pipeline. We have grown our fleet of alternative fuels-capable vehicles. And, in 2016, we will deploy the Great Green Fleet (GGF) using advanced alternative fuel blends and showcasing energy efficiency measures that increase our combat capability. But there is more we can, and need, to do. • We are deploying new platforms, such as the Joint Strike Fighter and the

Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement, and developing cutting-edge weapons systems, including the rail gun and directed energy weapons. While these new systems will increase our reach and lethality, they will also place new demands on our energy supply. Every gallon of fuel we are able to save through more efficient operations is a gallon available to enable these combat capabilities. • On the shore side, our

prove grid stability. We also lead the pack in developing renewable energy projects that have the potential to increase our installations’ resiliency in the event of grid outage. There are still opportunities out there to improve energy security and resiliency, and Sailors, Marines, and DoN civilians can help us find them. • Our Navy and Marine Corps leaders are sending the message that Sailors

ated the Energy Warrior application to tell the stories of Sailors, civilians, and others Navywide who are leading the charge to improve energy efficiency and increase combat capability. Every Sailor and Marine should take these messages to heart. • Our focus on energy efficiency and supply diversity as combat enablers will extend beyond the month of October. In early 2016, we will deploy the GGF, the centerpiece of

installations play a critical role in promoting readiness, generating the force structure necessary for mission success, and, increasingly, enabling combat operations. We need to continue to enhance resiliency and energy security at Navy and Marine Corps bases to protect those capabilities. The DoN is already among the federal government’s leaders in pursuing third-party financing to increase energy efficiency and im-

and Marines need to know and understand how their energy decisions can impact operations. Leaders are encouraging those under their command to take action to optimize their energy use. The Commandant of the Marine Corps has called on his Marines to adhere to an Energy Ethos which promotes the shared vision that the efficient use of energy resources is a critical component of mission readiness. The Navy cre-

which will be a Carrier Strike Group (CSG) using energy conservation technologies, operating procedures, and/or alternative energy in the course of its normal operations. The CSG will join other platforms, aircraft, amphibious forces, and shore installations performing planned mission functions, as part of the GGF, throughout 2016. Every Sailor, Marine, civilian, and contractor will have the chance to play a part in

the GGF, and I welcome your innovative ideas. Planned tours, engagements with partner nations, and media events are an opportunity to recognize your efforts and underscore the Navy and Marine Corps’ continued leadership in the energy arena. • Energy Action Month reminds all of us to think creatively about ways to reduce energy consumption and to get more mission out of every gallon and kilowatt hour. I encourage you to take some time to share ideas with your colleagues and chain of command, whether in person or online/social media channels (e.g., https://www. facebook. com/NavalEnergy or http://www.hqmc.marines .mil/e2o/Resources). You can also send an e-mail to energywarrior@navy.mil or energy@usmc.mil. • Thank you for your continued service, dedication and sacrifice. Semper Fortis. Semper Fidelis. • The point of contact for this effort is Joseph Bryan, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy. His office number is (571) 256-7879. Released by Ray Mabus, Secretary of the Navy.

NHP releases butterflies for Suicide Prevention Month Story, photo by Jason Bortz NHP PAO


aval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) held a special observance for September, Suicide Prevention Month, Sept. 18. The observance began with an awareness walk and concluded with the reading of a suicide prevention proclamation by Capt. Sarah Martin, commanding officer, NHP, and the release of 36 butterflies. “The butterflies symbolized freedom and beauty,” said Lt. Holly Black, NHP’s suicide prevention coordinator. “There is beauty in remembering those we have lost to suicide and freedom for those that have persevered.” According to Navy Personnel Command, 41 active-duty Sailors committed suicide in 2013 and another 53 activeduty Sailors committed suicide in 2014. As of Sept. 1, 28 active-duty Sailors have committed suicide in 2015. Per the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), suicide accounts for more years of life lost than any other cause of death except for heart disease and disease. One Sailor took advantage of the awareness walk to remember a friend of his that committed suicide when he

was 16 in his native country of Ghana. HN Marcus Ofosu Appiah started walking at 8 a.m. and didn’t stop until he reached 14 miles. “I was just thinking about my friend and how much I missed her,” said Appiah, a corpsman with Naval Branch Health Clinic Corry Station. This year, the Navy’s message for Suicide Prevention Month is “1 Small ACT.” This message promotes that simple, everyday actions can save lives by using the Navy’s ACT (Ask Care Treat) bystander intervention model. “One life loss to suicide is one too many,” said Black, 26, who is also a nurse with NHP’s Labor and Delivery Department. “I organized this observance to raise awareness of suicides in our military and to educate everyone on suicide warning signs and risk factors.” According to Black, there are no specific demographics associated with suicides, but there may be warning signs that can be observed by those in contact with someone con-

templating suicide. Acting withdrawn, decreased work performance, lack of focus or increased use of alcohol may be signs of someone who needs help, but it is also possible a person will show little or no signs of suicide. Black knows firsthand that warning signs are not always easy to notice. As a new nurse at her previous command, she knew two fellow service members that committed suicide. One of those service members was a close personal friend. “We ran races together and I even had her at my house for Easter dinner,” said Black of

her friend. “I spoke with her five days before she committed suicide, and I never suspected she was suicidal. I wish I could have done more, which is why I volunteered to be the suicide prevention coordinator at NHP. I want everyone to know the signs of suicide so maybe they can save a life.” According to Black, if you suspect someone is contemplating suicide, the best thing to do is confront them and ask them if they are OK, which is the first part of ACT. If the person says they are thinking of committing suicide or you suspect they are, there are re-

sources available to both individuals contemplating suicide and bystanders. Those resources include command chaplains, Fleet and Family Support Centers, physicians and social workers. Individuals can also call the Military Crisis Line at 1-800-273TALK (8255), text 838255, or visit www. military crisis line.net for confidential, free support, 24/7. “We need to make sure we are taking care of each other,” said Martin. “We need to listen to find that one incident when some needs help. Together, we can save one life at a time.”

After more than 30 years of faithful service to the nation, ACCM Kelly E. Smith retired from the U.S. Navy in a ceremony held at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Aug. 28. More than 100 people joined together to wish him the traditional “Fair Winds and Following Seas.” The ceremony culminated Smith’s second tour at the installation, where he served as the NASWF Air Operations Department leading chief. Previously, Smith served as the radar branch chief and was promoted to chief petty officer (CPO), a defining moment where Smith joined the ranks of CPOs past, present and future in 1999. Smith also served at Tactical Air Control Squadron (TacRon) 21, where he first met the guest speaker for the retirement ceremony, Capt. Johnathan Laubach. Laubach, currently the deputy director of command and control, Office of the Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, United States Navy, took over command of TacRon 21 in the mid-

2000s. “At the time, I knew that Master Chief Smith was going to be my enlisted leader, but I had no idea how lucky I was. Master chief quickly became a trusted adviser,” Laubach said during the ceremony. “He was an allaround leader in the squadron.” Smith’s military career began when he reported to Recruit Training Command Great Lakes in 1985 to begin his initial training. After forging through the cold Michigan winters with his shipmates, Smith earned the designation of air traffic controller airman in August 1986. Smith received his first operational assignment to the USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67) in 1986. During his retirement speech, Smith reflected upon a moment that forever altered his perception about his naval career. While forward-deployed to the Mediterranean aboard the ship, Smith and his fellow sailors were notified in the early morning hours that two MIGs (foreign fighter jets) were headed for their ship. In response, their Skipper launched F-14s, which successfully engaged the MIGs. “For me, that sent a big signal: I’m part of a great organization, a team capable of doing anything

they need to do. And for me that was it. I was hooked, hooked hard.” Smith said. “I gotta go out to sea. Once it gets in your blood, it’s hard to get away from.” Smith’s served at more than 14 duty stations ranging from NavSuppFac Diego Garcia to NS Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico. Smith’s brother, retired SK1 Steven Kaesman, sent a letter to be read at Smith’s retirement ceremony. The letter highlighted his enduring respect for Smith’s service, and also his admiration for Smith’s upholding of the Navy core values.

“We have not served on the same ships, though we have sailed the same oceans. We have not served at the same shore commands, though we have walked the same beaches. You have lead many others except me, though I have followed you,” said Kaesman. Smith’s awards include the Meritorious Service Medal, Achievement Medal (5), the Navy/Marine Corps Commendation Medal (7), Navy Good Conduct Medal (6) and numerous operational and unit awards. Also during the ceremony, NAS Whiting Field Command-

ing Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau presented Smith with his seventh Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal on behalf on the Secretary of the Navy. The citation praised Smith’s leadership of 95 officer and enlisted personnel at NAS Whiting Field’s 15 airfields, resulting in more than two million flight operations. Bahlau described Smith’s leadership as not only significantly impacted the command’s overall readiness and success, but also greatly contributing to the command earning the 2015 Installation Excellence Award.

Cmdr. Joseph Stibler flies his last flight Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Jenne Jolie NASWF Public Affairs

After spending more than 29 years teaching future Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and foreign allied aviators how to fly, Cmdr. Joseph Stibler flew his final flight as a naval aviator Aug. 26. The flight marked the end of a distinguished 24 years career of service to the nation. According to Stibler, the last 10 years instructing young aviators at Naval Air Station (NAS) Whiting Field were the most enjoyable.

“My time at NAS Whiting Field has been fantastic,” he said. “Every day has been fun, and I always look forward to getting out of bed.” Instructing for both rotary and fixed wing aircraft, Stibler left a long-lasting impression on not only those with whom he’s worked, but also the aviation community as a whole. Stibler previously taught naval flight officers at TraWing-6 onboard NAS Pensacola, where he was awarded instructor of the year and helped set up the T-6A program. While an in-

ing Field and NAS Pensacola, Stibler helped form students into aviators and naval flight officers, as well as instructed the next generation of instructor pilots. HT-28 leadership emphasized Stibler’s willingness to go above and beyond to help students hone their skills and become the best aviators. “Stibler is an excepCmdr.

Stibler always asked for hours, was willing to work weekends, and was always ready to put on the flight suit and be an active part of molding the future of aviation. Ketcham described Stibler as an irreplaceable member of the Hellion’s team, whose corporate knowledge was astounding. “As a reservist, Stibler has flown as much and even more than active duty instructors. He has touched those throughout the (aviation) community, and I can’t thank him enough,” said Ketcham.

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

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.

Big Brothers Big Sisters’ ‘2014-2015 Military Big of the Year’ From Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida


ig Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida announced IT1 Fredrick “Josh” Amerine as 20142015 Military Big of the Year. He was presented the Ron Mobayed award at a training event Sept. 2 at NASP Corry Station. Amerine and Nicholas have been matched for a little more than a year, and during that time, Amerine has played an integral role in his Little Brother’s life. Despite Amerine’s hectic military schedule, he always found time to be a consistent role model to Nicholas. Amerine recently told his case manager “Nicholas is the best Little Brother one could wish for; we are practically inseparable and make an awesome team.” They typically get together on Sundays and some of their outings include shopping and learning about different foods at the Asian market, playing basketball, volunteering at a car wash, being road guards at 5K run, playing video games, watching movies at the base theater, and of course school work at Barnes and Nobles. Amerine has also introduced Nicholas to his Japanese culture by having him eat sushi for the first time, which he now loves, and teaching him how to speak in Japanese. During the past school year, whenever Nicholas

became discouraged with his grades, he could always count on Amerine for encouragement. Amerine has shared about his own experiences about going from Cs to straight As, and has told him if he can do it, then he can also. Amerine has encouraged Nicholas to make a great first impression with his teachers during the first week of school, and also has given him great advice on how to behave in school and around others. Nicholas’ mom told their case manager, “Nicholas is always excited and looks forward to Josh’s visits. He talks about their outings all week, he’s always smiling and even made the comment, “I am going to have a good night sleep,” after one of their outings.” She likes that Nicholas listens and respects Amerine. Amerine works with Nicholas in front of his mom, and she commented that she really appreciated that because she can see they are on the same page with doing what is best for Nicholas. Amerine has taught Nicholas three

main things that would ensure him success in life: family first, attitude, and academics. Nicholas’ mom likes that Amerine sets a great example for her son, by putting his wife first before everything or everyone else. They end every outing with a mentoring summary on how to boost self-esteem and how to be a good person. Some goals and special projects they are currently working on are leadership development, teamwork, building skills and a plan of action for this year’s curriculum in school. Amerine has also been very helpful in Big Brothers Big Sisters’ “100 Men 100 Days” recruitment campaign, by recruiting other men to volunteer

and become Big Brothers. Because of the role Amerine has played in his Little Brother’s life and because of the wonderful impact he has made, Big Brothers Big Sisters is honored to have him as 2014-2015 Military Big of the Year. The Ron Mobayed Award was established as a memorial to the life of Lt. Ronald Joseph Mobayed, who was an outstanding Big Brother while he was stationed in Pensacola for flight training in the early 1990s. Tragically, Mobayed and his crew were killed in the line of duty Oct. 3, 1995. This award is presented to pay tribute to Big Brothers Big Sisters military volunteers in honor of Mobayed’s

Peanut fans will love festival in Jay By Louis Cooper For Beaches to Woodlands Tour

Besides the legume guest of honor, the annual Jay Peanut Festival brings scores of vendors to the sleepy rural area. “We’ve got lots of vendors,” said Brenda Gabbert, who has been coordinating the festival at her farm for 26 years. “Last year, we had about 262 vendors.

Admission, parking and seeing the sights are free. Gabbert estimated that about 20,000 people attend the festival each year. North Santa Rosa churches use the festival as fundraisers.

This year, the Living Truth Church is providing chicken dinners. Cobb Town Holiness Church will sell cotton candy, baked goods and T-shirts. Several other churches are also signed up. Naturally, the peanut will be the center of attention. “We’ll have fried ones, boiled ones, green ones, dried ones, roasted ones and candied ones,” Gabbert said. “Some people put them in baked goods.” As is customary, Lowery’s Farms will provide boiled peanuts with help from the Jay Volunteer Fire Department. The festival will include all of the activities fans have come to expect, including live music, with gospel music Sunday morning. There will be a pig chase for children on Saturday and possibly Sunday. A pet

dress-up parade and contest is set for Sunday afternoon. The Escambia River Electric Cooperative will bring its trolley. There will also be pony rides, inflatables, a rock wall and a hay ride. The festival was started by Gabbert and her husband, Gene, in honor of their daughter, Melissa, who passed away at the age of 19 from cancer. Brenda, 72, and Gene, 77, continue to run the festival with the help of their surviving daughter and her husband. The festival is one of the events featured during the 12th annual Beaches to Woodlands Tour Other events include pumpkin patches and mazes in Milton, 5K runs, theatre, art, history and cultural events.

SAPR 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-of-command, 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.
