Navy commands celebrate flexible and innovative work From Chief of Naval Personnel

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Navy commands recognized for their flexible workplace practices are sharing their methods with the fleet to help leaders provide the best opportunity for developing and retaining Sailors and civilian employees. Nine Navy commands, including NAS Pensacola’s Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), were honored with the When Work Works Award, which highlights organizations across the country for creating effective workplaces

for employee and employer. The commands have utilized a variety of practices to enhance morale and productivity, including an emphasis on providing telework opportunities, initiatives to support health and fitness, and an emphasis on supporting career goals for individuals. The recipients of the When Work Works Award were announced in August, and as commands get ready for the 2015 application cycle, leaders are sharing what worked to help them develop their talented teams. “Award winners, like Naval Sta-

tion Great Lakes, are recognized for their command accomplishments along with their ability to help Sailors set and attain their professional and personal goals outside of work,” said Lt. Francis (Shannon) Sweeney, Life-Work Balance lead, Plans and Policy, Chief of Naval Personnel Office of Diversity and Inclusion. “That includes college courses, obtaining degrees, United Services Military Apprenticeship Program certification, or community involvement. When command triads can accomplish the mission and be flexible enough to support Sailors’ other pursuits, that is a win for the Navy.”

As we kick off Fire Prevention Week 2014 (Oct. 5-11) Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast (F&ESGC) wants to remind you of the importance of testing your smoke detectors. I cannot stress this enough; if you have to replace your battery due to it being low and causing that annoying beep every few minutes, don’t take out the battery until you have the

replacement – it could save your life. For the month of October, the F&ESGC Fire Prevention Office will be doing training of various types such as fire drills, live fire training, briefings and classes, fire station tours for individual families or groups and other events. Come by and tour the children’s fire safety house and learn what to do in the event of a fire. Check Gosport throughout the month of October for more fire safety articles. To set up a class or other training, call the Fire Prevention Branch at 452-2898.

The Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) in Orlando has won the When Work Works Award for two years in a row. “As the Navy’s primary center for advanced training simulation, we are always seeking better and faster ways to accomplish our mission for the warfighter,” said Capt. Wes Naylor, NAWCTSD commanding officer. “We learn from experience and experiments, we focus on innovation, effectiveness, and performance, and we are open to changing our assumptions and developing new approaches to

Escambia schools awarded $1.6 million grant Monies will bolster academic achievement and wellness at four schools From Kim Stefansson Public Relations Coordinator

The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) recently awarded a $1.6 million grant to the Escambia County School District. Brown Barge Middle School, as well as Hellen Caro, Blue Angels and Pleasant Grove elementary schools will share the funds, which are designated to be spent over a three-year time frame. Each school will utilize grant monies to improve academic achievement and overall student wellness in a variety of initiatives that include greater infusion of Energy from page 1

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

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

Getting hired can be challenging for military veterans By Lida Citroën Principal, LIDA360

Companies are starting to loosen the stronghold on hiring freezes initiated when the economy was plummeting. Yes, as hiring managers and recruiters across the country seek to find talent, a highly untapped and ready workforce awaits employment. Currently, there are roughly 163,000 unemployed post-9/11 veterans and more than 600,000 unemployed veterans overall. These individuals are the beneficiaries of more than $130 billion in training, education and skill building from the U.S. government. Why aren’t hiring managers recruiting veterans? There is a disconnect between veterans and civilian hiring managers, and it goes both ways. Veterans overwhelmingly leave military service unprepared and unarmed with the tools to position themselves as viable candidates to civilian companies, and hiring managers are unskilled and untrained in how to recruit military veterans. The challenges include: • Reading the resume: Hiring managers often lack training to read and understand a military resume. What does being an E-6 mean? What does it mean that you did Command

How to submit a commentary

and Control Battle Management Operations in the Air Force, and how is it relevant for the position I’m recruiting for? • Inability to sell themselves: In the military culture, the focus is on mission, unit, and the person next to you, not on you. Self-promotion and selffocus are unacceptable and discouraged. Therefore, when veterans leave service, they struggle when answering questions such as, “Tell me about a success you had that you are most proud of.” To the veteran, this would mean being disloyal. To the hiring manager, not getting an answer is frustrating and suspicious. • PTSD: Civilian media has not done an adequate job of educating the public about PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and the numerous other challenges former military live with after service. • Skills not transferrable: Without a clear outline of which military skills translate to which civilian job responsibilities, it may be unreasonable to expect

that hiring managers with no military experience can understand how someone who worked front lines in the infantry can lead their IT staff through a new project. Or, how a combat medic is qualified to hold a sales position in their pharmaceutical company. • Fit in the organization: Hiring managers seek skills, experience, and talent in recruiting new employees, and they look for cultural fit as well. The perception that a military veteran is used to barking orders, meeting high-stress timelines, and putting feelings aside for execution on mission can deter recruiters from evaluating a veteran candidate. So what can the veteran employee bring to the organization? Veterans see their work as a career, not a job. After years of service, sometimes multiple deployments, and sacrifice of family and friends, veterans transition to a civilian career with little more than a week or two of preparation. It is no wonder that veterans struggle with articulating, positioning, and marketing their value to civilian employers. I have worked with several hundred former and transitioning veterans to help them articulate their value so managers

will be able to see the benefit of engaging and hiring them. Here are some of the key reasons to hire a veteran: • Problem solving – The training veterans received in service is the ultimate in problem solving. They are trained to think creatively and to not be deterred by obstacles. Where their civilian counterpart might stop in the face of a challenge, the veteran will persevere until a resolution is identified. For employers that seek independent thinkers, solution-oriented team leaders, and focused employees, veterans are the ideal candidate. • Loyalty – When attrition accounts for a great deal of corporate revenue loss, and the costs to replace one employee are very high, having a workforce that is selective and then loyal is of high value. Veterans are taught that loyalty is admirable. This makes them tremendous assets to organizations that seek leaders to help manage risk, high performing teams, and critical initiatives where loyalty and followthrough will produce valued results. • Credentials – After service, many veterans enter the job market with advanced credentials and clearances. For companies in industries where a

background check or government security clearance – such as banking, information technology, and healthcare – are requirements, this is a direct cost savings. • Adaptability – The veteran could be an ideal candidate for a position with vague goals and boundaries, where cross-functional objectives compete for resources, or where global pressures require quick responses, while keeping longterm vision in mind. • Mentoring – The day a new recruit enters the military, they are met with a peer who walks them through the process – from where to get supplies, to what to expect in boot camp and where they should sit in the mess hall. Mentoring is a huge part of the military culture and veterans carry this belief with them after service. Companies seeking team leaders and employees who will enlist support for their goals and encourage other employees are smart to hire veterans.

She regularly presents programs to teach transitioning veterans how to understand their value and how to market themselves to future employers.

Maintainers help close out last chapter in T-39 Sabreliner history Commentary by Cmdr. Taylor Brownlie

On Sept. 30, L-3 communications/Logistics Solutions moved the T-39 Sabreliner over to the “sundown” inactive list. She joins many other proud aircraft which have served the training command and Navy so well. The T-39 may be retiring, but forgotten she will never be. She won’t be forgotten by the aviators, instructors, or students who flew her. And she won’t be forgotten by those who kept her flying for 51 years. The true heroes behind this success story: the maintenance personnel. As of Sept. 30, the engines are silent. The fuel trucks won’t be racing to meet every landing aircraft. The line personnel including Les Pelton, Romeo Meyer and Norm Edwards won’t be eagerly awaiting the landing of an aircraft. The tower controllers won’t be clearing another Sabreliner for the break, carrier break or otherwise; and only a memory of those good men and women who so professionally maintained the Sabreliner will remain. Now your T-39 Sabreliner is retired. Both man and machine have both earned it after 51 years, but only the machine will get the rest. It is the end of an era. An era without equal. The L-3 maintenance expertly managed by program manager Ron Hudson and site managers Mike Neri and Dean-o Fournier have put the final touches on a most memorable chapter in the history of the training command. And they gave it its due respect and reverence. As we send her away to the place she will retire, we take a moment to remember her service and those who made it possible. Sabreliners were not young airplanes. The youngest was aircraft No. 08 (BuNO 165516), and she was a 1965 baby. She had her mid-life crisis just before she flew to the desert, as if she

just was not ready to retire. She wanted to remain with the maintenance team that kept her flying, free from corrosion in the corrosion-intense Pensacola weather. She didn’t want to go. She wanted us to remember that she was the one aircraft at the “sundown” ceremony. No other T-39s were there, but she was. She wanted us to know that while she was the youngest, she was not young. Her air-to-air radar was not ready to be shut down. She was well-maintained, and she thought that she was younger than she really was. Those maintenance personnel were her secret. They kept her looking young and feeling younger. She was an ageless machine. Nameless she wasn’t. Nor were the professionals who cared for her during the years. Distinguished professionals including Forrest Sutton and Chuck Kneemiller. The success of the T-39 program required commitment at all levels, and in L-3 Communications/Logistics Solutions, that commitment was there. It was there from the highest level of leadership to the maintenance personnel who cared for these majestic flying machines. It was elegantly said by the chief pilot, Pieter VandenBergh, a 15 year veteran of the T-39 program: “The most rewarding aspect of this job to me is the privilege of working with a very talented and experienced maintenance department led by maintenance manager Chuck Kneemiller. I was always impressed with how they followed established written procedures and were pro-active in their aircraft trouble-shooting.” The challenges of a “sundown” program are many. Reductions in manpower and procurement of parts and equip-

ment dictated that the maintenance team build efficiencies into their processes as they continued to divest the aircraft and drawdown in manpower and skill sets while operating at surge pace until the very end of the program; a delicate balance of operations, maintenance and logistics. Resourceful and experienced maintenance professionals including Scott Leighty, Ted Rhodes, Walt Tallman, Pete Morris, Dennis Wa g g o n e r , Leigh Rode, Davy Monroe, Victor Dixon, Willey Sorrells, Tommy Strahan, Carol Cristea and Glenn Taylor served as crucial elements to the success of the “sundowning” mission, ensuring only safe and full-mission capable aircraft were launched. Their extensive near 30-year experience made them masters of all aircraft systems, not just one. Versatility was the name of the game. One day they would work the engines and flight controls, the next day hy-

draulics, avionics, and the APG63 F-16 radar. The cycle began every morning with the standard checks. The maintenance team worked as a team and cared for the Sabreliner as a team. They knew the personnel who flew the Sabreliner. They talked with them. They visited with them. They knew that their very lives were in their hands. They cared for every aircraft as if the lives of those officers depended on it, which they did. One of the more senior and last pilots to fly the Sabreliner, Russ Early, put it well when he said, “There is an enormous amount of trust we have in our plane captains and troubleshooters. Their dedicated attention to detail is critical to the safe execution of every mission we fly in support of the U.S. Navy, and we could not do it without them.” From the Gray Eagles pilots: “L-3 Maintenance, you have been professionals to the end and have honored yourselves, and from every proud sabre pilot who has worn the Gray Eagles patch, we bid you congratulations on a job well

done. Go with the knowledge that you truly are the best of the best. You have done it all with style and grace under pressure as we say goodbye to a dear old friend that was captured so well at the sundown ceremony. You have done it with class, and you have our sincere gratitude. It is the product of professionalism, dedication and commitment of the highest level. You have been a class act.” From the skipper of VT-4, Cmdr. Sam “Smokey” White, the last T-39 CO in the Navy: “It has been a privilege to work with the pilots and maintenance professionals who flew and maintained this aircraft. The T-39 has touched so many lives during its long and distinguished service to our nation, and it could not have been done without you. You have made my tour as the last skipper of a T-39 squadron a most memorable and enjoyable one. I thank you. The Warbucks of VT-4 thank you. My wife, Robin, said it best after watching the aircraft fly away for the last time when she said, ‘there won’t be another one of these.’ Fair winds and following seas.”

Remembering ‘The Forgotten Mechanic,’ a tribute - author unknown “Through the history of world aviation many names have come to the fore. Great deeds of the past in our memory will last, as they’re joined by more and more. “When man first started his labor in his quest to conquer the sky he was designer, mechanic and pilot and he built a machine that would fly but somehow the order got twisted, and then in the public’s eye the only man that could be seen was the man who knew how to fly. “The pilot was everyone’s hero; he was brave, he was bold, he was grand, as he stood by his bat-

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS

tered old biplane with his goggles and helmet in hand. To be sure, these pilots all earned it, to fly you have to have guts. “And they blazed their names in the hall of fame on wings with bailing wire struts. “But for each of these flying heroes there were thousands of little renown, and these were the men who worked on the planes but kept their feet on the ground. “We all know the name of Lindbergh, and we’ve read of his flight of fame. But think, if you can, of his maintenance man, can you remember

his name? “And think of our wartime heroes, Gabreski, Jabara and Scott. Can you tell me the names of their crew chief? A thousand to one you cannot. “Now pilots are highly trained people, and wings are not easily won. “But without the work of the maintenance man, our pilots would march with a gun. So when you see mighty Sabreliner aircraft, as they mark their way through the air, the greased-stained man with a wrench in his hand is the man that put them there.”

NHP: Medical referral process made easy Story, photo by Jason Bortz NHP Public Affairs

A

s robust as the services available at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) are, TRICARE Prime beneficiaries may at times be referred to a specialist outside of the hospital. It’s important that TRICARE beneficiaries understand the referral process to avoid unnecessary delays with care and potential costs. First and foremost, NHP has the privilege to see all beneficiaries enrolled at the hospital prior to referring them to a civilian provider for specialty care such as physical therapy, orthopedic surgery and dermatology. TRICARE Prime Network beneficiaries with a civilian primary care manager who reside within 60 minutes of NHP may also be referred to the hospital for specialty care. If the hospital has the capacity to perform the services in an appropriate amount of time, it is best for beneficiaries to be seen at NHP. “It is in the best interest of our patients to receive as much care here as possible,” said Cmdr. Kedric Webster, director of surgical services, NHP. “The staff here is all part of the military family, so we understand and know our patients

best. Plus, all of the specialty clinics have direct access to a patient’s primary care manger if they are enrolled here. The staff of the specialty clinics work side by side with the primary care managers to coordinate the appropriate care needed for our patients.” For services that require surgery, such as orthopedics, NHP is equipped with stateof-the-art operating rooms and has highly-trained staff who can perform a variety of services. “Military doctors get the same board certification training that civilian doctors get,” said Webster, “but military doctors and surgeons also bring a plethora of education and knowledge that they have acquired from multiple locations throughout their careers. We work together as a team to provide the best care possible to our patients.” If the hospital is unable to perform a service, beneficiaries will receive a referral to a TRICARE approved provider

and all referrals must be preapproved by TRICARE. TRICARE beneficiaries who see a civilian provider without an authorization could be charged a $300 deductible and 50 percent of the cost of the visit. Once a beneficiary receives a referral, it is the responsibility of the beneficiary to manage the referral, which could include multiple approved visits. If the approved number of visits expires, beneficiaries need to contact their primary care manager or Medical Home Port Team to request

additional appointments. Referral requests can take up to 10 business days to be approved by TRICARE and beneficiaries need to wait for the referral to be approved before continuing care. “When a beneficiary is granted a referral from their PCM for a specialist outside of Naval Hospital Pensacola, they will receive a letter in the mail from TRICARE explaining the referral,” said Lt. Carlos Linomontes, department head for utilization management, NHP. “The letter will contain who the referral is

with and how many appointments can be made with that referral. It is important that beneficiaries read and understand the letter to avoid confusion. If they have questions about their referral, they can contact their Medical Home Port Team, PCM, TRICARE or our Health Benefits Office.” Referral tracking can be done through www.tricareonline.com or by calling TRICARE at 1 (800) 444-5445. The Health Benefits Office at NHP can also assist and is available at 505-6709.

Hispanic heritage luncheon spices up atrium By Ens. Kim Mahoney NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

T

he Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Diversity Committee hosted its Hispanic heritage luncheon Sept. 24 in the atrium. This celebration of Hispanic heritage was part of Whiting Field’s participation in National Hispanic Heritage Month – a “month” that spans from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 to encompass the range of independence days observed by Hispanic and Latin American nations. The theme of this year’s luncheon was, “Hispanics: A legacy of history, a present of action and a future of success.” The luncheon opened with remarks from AC2 Mario Santis, who has led the NASWF Diversity Committee for two years. Cmdr. Eric Seib, NASWF operations officer, told a short history of the month’s origins

and encouraged guests to embrace the heritage and pass on their family histories to generations to come. The luncheon included Hispanic theme plates and desserts that were cooked by the NASWF Diversity Committee members. Each table hosted a fact sheet of the history of a Hispanic or Latin American nation, and

the atrium was decorated with the flags of those same nations. Latin music played in the background as Aimara, the daughter AC3 Naysha Gonzalez, danced to the music. The luncheon was an informative way to share a piece of Hispanic heritage with guests from around the base.

Chaplain’s office ‘date night’ a tonic for relationships By Ens. Kim Mahoney NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

T

he Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) chaplains’ office gave a new meaning to romantic comedy at the first base-sponsored date night. Sixty couples attended the fledgling event to enjoy an evening out and listen to comedian Michael Smalley’s musings about relationships. Hemingway’s Island Grill hosted the inaugural date night, allowing the beachfront restaurant to set the tone for a brisk, two-hour romantic getaway. A diverse range of couples attended, including petty officers, instructor pilots and flight students; some married and others just getting to know each other. The attendees all had one thing in common though, uncertainty of what to expect from the night. That uncertainty was quickly replaced with relaxation as they happily engaged in conversation with other couples at their table and laughed out loud to Smalley’s anecdotes and jokes. “With our third child, Reese, on the way, we are usually busy parenting, so

we really appreciated an event that allowed us a night dedicated to marriage. The food was incredible and we ran into many old friends and even made some new ones,” said Air Force Capt. Nathan Chal, who attended the night with his wife, Caila. Smalley, a nationally renowned marriage counselor, uses comedy to get his message across with a lighthearted but informational method. As a licensed marriage and family counselor, Smalley speaks at high-profile events and has written several books on relationship building. Couples were given meaningful advice from a respected professional on topics that all military couples could understand.

Comedian Michael Smalley with wife, Amy Smalley.

“(Smalley) told some funny stories that emphasized the dynamics of how you make it through a stressful situation in a healthy way,” said Lt. Jason Hart, NAS Whiting Field Chaplain, who had the idea for the event. Hart praised Training Air Wing Five’s involvement in date night, crediting them with making it possible for Smalley to come speak by funding his performance. Their involvement speaks volumes for what warrants investment on base. Hart identified the need for healthy relationships as one of the biggest items that can improve the lives of NAS Whiting Field members.

“Families are the building block upon which we do our mission, if our families are not healthy or our relationships are not healthy, we cannot be our best for the mission,” Hart said. The chaplains’ office was thrilled by the outcome of date night and is pursuing other ideas to continue supporting relationship building. Hart’s next project is parents night out, which will be Oct. 18 from 5 to 9 p.m. The night gives parents access to free child care from local churches, giving parents an opportunity to do as they please with the comfort of knowing their children are in good hands. Hart hopes to make future date nights a monthly opportunity that couples can take advantage of. Couples expressed excitement on attending future events. “I was impressed that the command spent resources making relationships a priority. It was fun to get to include my boyfriend – who usually only gets to see the hard work side of flight school – in the social aspect of the military. I hope the wing continues to host date nights at least annually so that future students can enjoy a fun night out,” said Ens. Julia Freeburg, a flight student at NASWF.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month ‘Relationships should be respectful, safe and positive’ From NASP Fleet & Family Support Center

ctober is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the Department of Defense theme this year is “Relationships should be respectful, safe and positive.”

O

Domestic violence is contrary to our military values and community standards and cannot be tolerated. All community members play a role in preventing domestic violence. Our community will have several events on Naval Air Station Pensacola throughout the month. These will include the “Know the signs” campaign, returning from last year and an expanded “Silent Witness” program. A collection of signs will be rotated among several locations on base. These signs feature messages showing warning signs that could indicate an unhealthy or even abusive relationship. These include “I feel like I am always walking on eggshells,” “He has all the power in this relationship,” “She said she would hurt herself if I leave her,” and “My friends worry about me in this relationship.” Controlling or abusive behaviors can come from males or females in same sex or opposite sex relationships, officer or enlisted and across all socio-economic backgrounds. Maintaining a healthy safe and fulfilling relationship requires motivation, commitment and ongoing work by both partners. Every couple faces relationship problems at some point. Working through problems in a healthy way can strengthen the relationship. The NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) has licensed clinical counselors who can provide services and

support to help couples build their relationship skills and work through common relationship problems. Relationships should be respectful. The foundations of a fulfilling and safe relationship are trust, mutual respect, and open communication. Healthy relationships don’t just happen. They take time, effort, and sometimes the outside help of professionals and concerned friends to develop. Relationships should be safe. Individual and family stress can escalate conflict and sometimes lead to domestic abuse. Abuse is never acceptable. Victims often are afraid to speak up for themselves. You can help. If you suspect abuse, take action. Offer to talk with the victim, refer them to the Domestic Abuse Victim Advocate or Favor House (a local domestic abuse shelter, 434-1177) or call local law enforcement. Relationships should be positive – for you and your children. Working through problems in a healthy way can strengthen a relationship; do it for your children and yourself. Children learn relationship skills by watching the people they know best. Set an example for your children by practicing healthy relationship skills with your spouse or partner. The FFSC’s Family Advocacy Program helps individuals, couples and families develop healthy relationship skills and address common relationship and parent-

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month... Naval Air Station Pensacola is joining other installations across the country and overseas in promoting awareness and prevention of domestic abuse during October. This year’s theme is “Relationships should be respectful, safe and positive.” (Above) During last October, a collection of signs, such as those seen above, were rotated across various locations on base. Part of the “Know the signs” campaign, these signs featured warning messages that could be indicators of an unhealthy or even abusive relationship. File photo by Kristy Malone ing challenges during every stage of life. When domestic violence occurs, the Family Advocacy Program supports victims and provides treatment for offenders. More information and resources are available at the National Domestic Violence Hotline. When violence is present

in the relationship, couples counseling may not be the best solutions. Victim safety is essential. Confidential information and support are available around the clock. Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at (800)799-7233 or visit www.thehotline.org to learn more.

October’s original ‘Day of Unity’ now stands for all victims of domestic violence From http://www.ncadv.org/

Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981, by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV). The intent was to connect battered women’s advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state and national levels. These activities were as varied and diverse as the

program sponsors but had common themes: mourning those who have died because of domestic violence, celebrating those who have survived and connecting those who work to end violence. In October 1987, the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed. That same year the first national toll-free hotline was begun. In 1989, the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month commemorative legislation was passed by the U.S. Congress. Such legislation has passed every year since with NCADV providing key leadership in this effort. In October 1994, NCADV, in conjunction with Ms.

Since then, NCADV has been collecting information on women who have been killed by an intimate partner and produces a poster each October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, listing the names of those documented in that year. The Day of Unity is celebrated the first Monday in October. NCADV hopes that events in communities and regions across the 50 states will culminate in a powerful statement celebrating the strength of battered women and their children.

UWF designated a 2015 Military Friendly School By Megan Prawdzik Gonzalez UWF Director of Communications

T

he University of West Florida (UWF) was recently designated a 2015 Military Friendly School by Military Friendly Schools.com. “I am very pleased that UWF continues to be recognized as an institution who truly cares about their veteran students and families – because we do,” said Marc Churchwell, director of the

UWF Military and Veterans Resource Center. “With the growing military affiliated student population, currently almost 25 percent of the total population, the sort of support and customer

service UWF's Military & Veterans Resource Center provides military, veteran students and their families is increasingly important. I am confident the MVRC will continue to provide this level of assistance, as it is a center truly run by veterans to serve veterans, and we do it very well.” The Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for mak-

ing the Military Friendly Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country. The survey captures more than 50 leading practices in supporting military students and is available free of charge to the more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 G.I. Bill funding. As in past years, the 2015 Military Friendly Schools results were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and

methodology developed by Victory Media with input by its independent Academic Advisory Board. Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly Schools designation, managed by Victory Media, is the premier, trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities. For more information about the university’s commitment to attracting and supporting military students, visit http://uwf. edu/offices/military-veteran-resource-center/.
