Bridge at NASP scheduled undergo work Oct. 10 ... Drivers could face traffic backups as they approach the main gate of Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Oct. 10. The southbound, right-side lane of Sam Lovelace Bridge, which spans Bayou Grande at the base’s main gate, is scheduled to be closed that day for maintenance work, according to Norman Feinberg, an engineering technician at NASP. The work is scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. Oct. 10 and the job may be finished by the end of the day. However, if all of the work cannot be accomplished in one day, then the bridge lane also will be closed starting at 7:30 a.m. Friday. Signage will be placed in the area prior to the lane closing to give drivers advance notice of possible traffic delays. While the work is under way, a NASP security vehicle is scheduled to be stationed at the entrance to the bridge blocking the right-hand incoming lane. For more information, call Feinberg on his cell phone at (850) 554-5676.

Message from the Commander in Chief From The White House

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 “Silence Hides Violence.” There will be several events and campaigns taking place on base throughout the month, beginning with the “Know the Signs” campaign. A collection of signs, such as those seen above, will be rotated across various locations on base. These signs feature messages of warning signs that could be indicators of an unhealthy or even abusive relationship. Photo by Kristy Malone For complete information about Domestic Violence Awareness Month, including phone numbers and websites, see page B1, in today’s “Life” section.

Hispanic Heritage observance at Mustin Club today (Oct. 4) NAS Pensacola will hold a Hispanic heritage observance event today (Oct. 4) at Mustin Beach Club from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. The base commanding officer, executive officer and command master chief are scheduled to attend the event. Guest speakers will be base Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins and NETSAFA’s CW05 Adolfo Demontalvo. A food tasting with samples from different Hispanic cultures is scheduled. With a national theme of “Hispanics: Serving and Leading Our Nation with Pride and Honor,” the observance celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

WASHINGTON (NNS) – “To the dedicated and hard-working employees of the United States government: “The federal government is America’s largest employer, with more than two million civilian workers and 1.4 million active duty military who serve in all 50 states and around the world. “But Congress has failed to meet its responsibility to pass a budget before the fiscal year that begins today (Oct. 1). And that means much of our government must shut down effective today. “I want you to know that I will keep working to get Congress to reopen the government, restart vital services that the American people depend on, and allow public servants who have been sent home to return to work. At my direction, your agencies should have reached out to you by now about what a shutdown means for our and your families. “Today, I wanted to take a moment to tell you what you mean to me – and to our country. “That begins by saying thank you for the work you do every day – work that is

vitally important to our national security and to American families’ economic security. You defend our country overseas and ensure that our troops receive the benefits they deserve when they come home. You guard our borders and protect our civil rights. You help small businesses expand and gain new footholds in overseas markets. You guide hundreds of thousands of people each day through the glory of America’s national parks and monuments, from Yosemite to the Statue of Liberty. And much more. “You do all this in a political climate that, too often in recent years, has treated you like a punching bag. You have endured three years of a federal pay freeze, harmful sequester cuts, and now, a shutdown of our government. And yet, you persevere, continuing to serve the American people with passion, professionalism, and skill. “None of this is fair to you. And should it continue, it will make it more difficult to keep attracting the kind of driven, patriotic, idealistic Americans to public service that our citizens deserve and that our system of self-government demands.

Nearly a ton of trash has disappeared from the beaches aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) thanks to 75 volunteers who participated in the 2013 International Coastal Cleanup. Four different teams recently collected a total of 1,980 pounds of debris, according to Navy Natural Resources Manager Mark W. Gibson. The teams included representatives from Corry Child Development Center, NASP Air Traffic Control, VT-10 and Regal Select Services Inc., Gibson said. The official date for this year’s cleanup was Sept. 21, but projects aboard NASP were completed at

Prevent kitchen fires: Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 6-12

GOSPORT

Training Squadron Four (VT-4), SAU commissioning Training Squadron Four (VT-4) and Squadron Augmentation Unit (SAU) commissioning ... Historic

By Craig Lewis Fire Prevention Chief, Fire and Emergency Services Gulf Coast

As we kick off National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Fire Prevention Week , I wanted to share some fire safety ideas with you. We usually do “spring cleaning” but have you ever considered “fall cleaning”? Doing such things as having your furnace serviced for the start of the heating season – it will work more efficiently and save you money. Do you have a fireplace? If so, when was the last time you had it cleaned and inspected? No idea? Then it’s time to have it done; let’s avoid chimney fires. Where else do you think you need to look in preventing fires? How about your dryer vent system – this includes the dryer portion of the vent and the venting to outside your home. It is very important to clean these out; take a look at yours and determine a frequency – but not less than once a year. How about your refrigerator? Remove your front and rear covers from your refrigerator and look at the dust accumulation on the cooling coils – kept clean, it will help keep your refrigerator safer from overheating. Fire safety – Back to the basics: • Test your smoke detector weekly to monthly. • Replace the smoke detector batteries at least every six months – “spring forward/fall back.” • Never leave cooking unattended – never – turn it off or remove it from the burner. • Have an escape plan – E.D.I.T.H – Exit Drills In The Home – and establish a meeting place. • Electrical – Inspect your electrical equipment – if your home is tripping breakers or fuses there’s a reason. Contact a licensed electrician. • If using gas heat and other fossil fuels such as LP gas, fireplace, gas stove, wood burning stove or if you have an attached garage – have a carbon monoxide detector. These are just a few basics. Watch for more information in upcoming articles during the month of October in Gosport. Reminder: All installations have gone to the 911 fire reporting system – on the installation landlines your call goes to the central dispatch at NAS Jacksonville – from your cell phones it goes to Escambia dispatch and be sure to let the dispatcher know your calling from the installation. Always provide the following: • Location – address or facility number – include location in or at the facility. • Nature of the emergency – fire, medical or other. • Give name and a call back number. •Meet the responding unit(s). For questions, information or to schedule training or classes call 452-2898.

Message from page 1

“Public service is noble. Public service is important. And by choosing public service, you carry on a proud tradition at the heart of some of this country’s greatest and most lasting achievements. In fact, more than 50 current or former federal employees have received the Nobel Prize for their efforts. It was grants from the Department of Energy that helped businesses unlock new sources of renewable energy, and from the National Science Foundation that helped entrepreneurs like the founders of Google change the world. It is your efforts that will help this country meet the great challenge of our time-rebuilding an economy where all who work hard can get ahead. “So while the budget fights in Washington are too often partisan.

your service to the country must never be. As one of my predecessors, President George H.W. Bush, once said, ‘There is nothing more fulfilling than to serve your country and your fellow citizens and to do it well. And that is what our system of self-government depends on.’ “This shutdown was completely preventable. It should not have happened. And the House of Representatives can end it as soon as it follows the Senate’s lead, and funds your work in the United States government without trying to attach highly controversial and partisan measures in the process. “Hopefully, we will resolve this quickly. In the meantime, I want you to know – whether you are a young person who just joined public service because you want to make a difference, or a career employee who has dedicated your life

to that pursuit – you and your families remain at the front of my mind. Your agency leaders and I will continue to defend your work at a time when that work has rarely been more important. We will continue to work with your agencies to keep you and your families apprised and informed of what is happening. And I will continue to do everything in my power to get the House of Representatives to allow our government to reopen as quickly as possible, and make sure you receive the pay that you have earned. “Thank you, again, for your service, your sacrifice, and everything you do every day for this country we love so much.” Sincerely, Barack Obama President For more information concerning the impact of the government shutdown, visit www.navy.mil.

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

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

Buyer’s guide: Cars can be sold ‘as is’ or with warranty By Lt. Jacque Leonard NASP Region Legal Service Office

I

n the market for new or used car? Purchasing a vehicle is an exciting time, but also involves a major decision. Follow these guidelines, and you will walk into the car-buying situation more informed about how to protect yourself. People typically buy cars from either a dealership or private individual. If the seller is a private individual, the car is sold “as is” and without any warranty unless your contract specifies coverage. When the seller is a dealership, it’s important to know about the “implied warranty of merchantability” – a term that describes the promises made by the dealership about the car’s condition. The implied warranty of merchantability is a contract law concept of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The UCC provides guidance to states and parties to a contract, but in order for the UCC to apply to a contract, either a state must codify the UCC into its state laws (which many states have done) or parties must include it as a governing authority to a contract. The warranty of merchantability means that the seller promises the vehicle will do what it is supposed to do, and that the car’s basic functions are operational. However, the warranty of merchantability does not

cover everything that could go wrong with a car, so it’s still very important that you fully inspect a car before buying it from a dealership. The warranty of merchantability is also “implied,” meaning that it can be modified or excluded whenever a dealership includes its own warranties in a vehicle sale. In order for a dealership to modify or exclude the implied warranty of merchantability, it must expressly use the term “merchantability” and, if the modification/exclusion is in writing, the writing must be conspicuous to the potential buyer. When a dealership provides its own written warranty and any other warranty is expressly disclaimed, those terms and conditions govern the sales contract and any implied warranty does not apply. Therefore, it’s essential to read a dealership’s warranty so that you understand what repairs are covered, what promises are made, and whether purchasing a dealership’s extended service contract is worthwhile. Purchasing an extended service contract is generally a cost-effective decision if the extension contract costs less than the an-

ticipated repair costs for that vehicle. On a used car, the best place to look for information about whether the vehicle is being offered with a warranty included is the Buyer’s Guide, which must be posted in every used car sold by a dealership in every state except Maine and Wisconsin. The Buyers Guide must state whether the vehicle is being sold “as is” or with a warranty; what percentage of the repair costs a dealer will pay under the warranty; that spoken promises are difficult to enforce; that the buyer should get all promises in writing; to keep the Buyers Guide for reference after the sale; the major mechanical and electrical systems on the car; and to ask to have the car inspected by an independent mechanic before purchasing. The Buyers Guide becomes part of the contract at the time of the sale and any guarantees within it override any of the contract’s restrictions. If you see the terms “as is,” “with all faults,” or other words clearly stating that there are no implied warranties, then the warranty of merchantability does not apply, and buyer beware. A vehicle sold “as is” means that all warranties are disclaimed and the vehicle is being sold in whatever its current condition may be. There are no promises about its quality or durability and the duty is completely on the buyer to inspect the car and know of its condition.

The UCC also includes an implied warranty of fitness. This means that statements made by a dealership about a vehicle’s suitability for a particular purpose represent warranties. If a dealership advertises that a car can haul a trailer, a customer buys it for that purpose, and the car cannot actually haul a trailer, the dealership has breached the implied warranty of fitness. This is only implied and can be excluded or modified by a dealership’s own warranties. Many states have incorporated the UCC into state laws on vehicle sales, and some states have even built upon the consumer protections in the UCC. Here are details regarding Florida and Alabama: • Florida: Unless a dealership affirmatively disclaims all warranties in writing, a vehicle (whether new or used) is at least covered by the implied warranty of merchantability, the warranty of fitness, and a good title. Florida does not have a used car lemon law – if you purchase a used car that turns out to be a lemon, you have no legal protections. • Alabama: Has incorporated the warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose into its state laws. Alabama’s lemon law rights extend coverage up to 24 months following delivery of the vehicle or 24,000 miles (whichever occurs first) when the manufacturer is obligated to make such repairs as necessary,

replace the vehicle, or provide a refund if the vehicle does not conform to an express manufacturer’s warranty. It is important to understand your rights as a buyer when purchasing a vehicle, and it is essential to understand the problems that could arise if you do not carefully consider your purchase. Knowing your state’s laws regarding warranties will help you make an informed decision and avoid legal hassles.

In reality, a smoke generator was belching out the thick white clouds and a handful of absorbent cloths floated with the current, thrown into the water near the fuel pier to simulate an oil spill. But before long, the cloths were contained by 900 feet of boom and a powerful, coordinated response had brought Coast Guard, fire and emergency and other base and local services together to a quick resolution. “On Sept. 24, U.S. Coast Guard and Pensacola Fire Department teams responded with NAS Pensacola’s Fire and Emergency Services (Gulf Coast), NASP Security forces, NASP Port Operations and environmental personnel and resources to a simulated fuel barge fire and oil spill exercise,” said Chris Steinnecker, NASP N7 Integrated Training and Readiness.

NASP Emergency Operations Center (EOC) provided support to the incident commander and reports to higher headquarters. Team-building and lessons learned from this drill will better prepare both first responders and support personnel to react if such a disaster were to occur.” NAS Pensacola Executive Officer Cmdr. David Jasso, the officer conducting the exercise, explained the multiagency training scenario. “While NASP regularly practices for environmental incidents, this oil spill drill afforded an opportunity to exercise a comprehensive response in an EOC format,” Jasso said. “The EOC worked to coordinate NASP first responders, but also facilitated a true multiagency effort with U.S. Coast Guard, Pensacola Fire Department, NAS Branch Medical and NavFac Environmental.”

MWR staff gets bystander intervention training Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) Sexual Assault Response Coordinators and/or Victim Advocates are now required at all CARE classes. FFSC representatives Paul Maxwell, Education Service Facilitator, and Lillie Johnson, Lead Sexual Assault Response Coordinator, attended the Sept. 18 class. Lillie Johnson emphasized the correlation between sexual assault and the consumption of alcohol. “Alcohol is the number one date rape drug, because it’s legal, it’s easily accessible and it’s relatively cheap,” she said. “Offenders are looking for vulnerability,” she continued. “While there are many ways to be vulnerable, one of the most common ways is to be drunk. As bartenders and servers, it’s important for you to be aware of this. The safety of our force, the safety of our people, is our most important job. We have a responsibility to them to be alert, to be aware, to be ever vigilant and to protect them and their safety.” She gave advice about how to be an effective bystander. “There are three stages of bystander intervention,” she said. “Notice something is happening (awareness), interpret what you see as an emergency (imminent), and act.” Lillie Johnson gave the group four options for acting: direct action, indirect action, create a distraction, or follow protocol. When she finished, Maxwell stepped up to talk to the group about causes and signs of suicidal thoughts and how to get

Class for alcohol servers offers more reasons to CARE Story by Jennifer Eitzmann NASP MWR

Nearly 20 Morale, Welfare and Recreation staffers from the Cubi Bar Café and Mustin Beach Club gathered at the Cubi Bar Café in the National Naval Aviation Museum Sept. 18 to complete CARE training. CARE stands for Controlling Alcohol Risks Effectively. The class is a yearly requirement for all MWR personnel working in the alcohol service environment. In the past, the purpose of the training was to teach service staff how to handle the challenges of balancing guest service with the legal responsibilities involved in serving alcohol. But, alcohol also has been identified as a major contributing factor in both sexual assault and suicide cases, so bystander intervention training was recently added to CARE classes Navywide. With the additional training, service staff can play a pivotal role in prevention. “CARE training is a great opportunity to emphasize the importance of bystander intervention – for sexual assault as well as suicide prevention – for those folks working in highrisk areas where alcohol is served,” said Elinor Johnson, a performance and training analyst for Navy Region Southeast. Since CARE facilitators are not trained to speak on suicide prevention or sexual assault,

help for someone who may be suicidal. “In 2012, suicide surpassed car accidents as the number one cause of people dying,” Maxwell said. “Relationship trouble is the number one cause of suicide.” Maxwell said that when people are thinking about suicide they exhibit certain behaviors or signs. Some examples he gave were: withdrawing, behaving recklessly, giving away personal belongings and verbalizing suicidal thoughts. “The Navy’s belief is one life lost to suicide is way too many,” he said. The Navy’s motto is: How many Sailors does it take to save a life? Just one. And the Navy uses the acronym ACT, Maxwell said. ACT stands for Ask, Care

and Treatment, and the campaign directs bystanders to ask the question, “Are you thinking about killing yourself?” Bystanders are also directed to care enough to make sure the person is OK, and to help the person find treatment. Maxwell gave the class an example. “Sometimes a drunk mind actually speaks a sober thought, sometimes they will tell you how they actually feel,” said Maxwell, “If you heard someone say ‘I’m worth more dead than alive,’ how many of you would actually ask: ‘Are you thinking about killing yourself?’ ” Only two hands went up. “So what would you do if you were afraid to ask,” Maxwell said. No one had an answer.

Then Lisa Wright, a server at the Cubi Bar Café, spoke up. “Won’t it go in their folder and hurt their military career?” she asked. Lillie Johnson said that whether or not a report of suicidal thoughts gets entered into a Sailor’s jacket depended on the situation and care received, but she emphasized a person’s life always comes before their career. At the end of his presentation, Maxwell asked his question again. “How many of you would be willing to ask the question?” he said. This time every hand in the room went up. For more information on bystander intervention, call the Fleet and Family Support Center at 452-5991.

NASWF’s VT-6 holds change of command ceremony By Lt. Nicholas Rank VT-6 Public Affairs

T

raining Squadron Six (VT-6) observed a change of the helm Oct. 3 in the Naval Air Station Whiting Field Atrium as Cmdr. Donald Jamiola ceded command of the unit to Lt. Col. Kevin Digman. Following the change of command, Jamiola departed for Norfolk, Va., where he will assume the duties of air boss aboard the USS Kearsarge (LHD 3). Digman graduated from Ball State University in 1996 and was designated a naval aviator in April 1999 at NAS Whiting Field. He served as a CH-43E pilot for HMM 364. Next, he attended Tactical Air Contol

Party School, where he was designated a forward air controller; then, he reported to MAGTF Training Center, Twenty Nine Palms, Calif., where he served as the assault support representative. In 2006, he reported to MATSG21 at NAS Pensacola as an instructor pilot in VT-6. Prior to completing the instructor under training syllabus, he volunteered for an individual aug-

NAS Whiting Field to host energy awareness 5K run Oct. 16 From Jay Cope NASWF PAO

“We’ve made strides – huge strides – in our energy conservation efforts,” beamed Reggie Parker, Naval Air Station Whiting Field Utilities and Energy Manager, as he spoke about NASWF’s success in electrical conservation efforts during the past two years. And strides is perhaps the perfect word to describe the progress, as on Oct. 16, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) and the Public Works Department (PWD)

are hosting an Energy Conservation Awareness 5K Run. The race, which will begin at 9 a.m. outside the NASWF Fitness Center, will loop runners up Langley Road to the picnic area before the golf course. The race will finish back at the fitness center. This is MWR’s first effort at hosting a run of this sort, but Don Inman, NASWF MWR program manager, is no stranger to hosting races. With a varied past of hosting 5Ks and biathlons behind him in previous positions, he expects the Oct. 16 race to go off without a hitch.

Inman stated that he is grateful for Gulf Power’s partial sponsorship of the event. “Gulf Power’s sponsorship has allowed us to provide the T-shirts to the first 75 registrants free of charge and for only $5 to participants who register after,” said Inman. “We’ll also be offering awards in nine different age categories to the top three male and female finishers in each division for a total of 54 different possible awards. We couldn’t have done it to this level without their sponsorship.” In addition to the footrace,

public works and Gulf Power will set up booths featuring literature on electrical usage and conservation. Gulf Power will also include a static display to better illustrate how energy translates into the power for so many devices we use on a daily basis. “The display features a bike that helps you better understand how you generate electricity,” explained Parker. “Participants peddle on the bike to power one light bulb, then more light bulbs, and finally other devices so that you can grasp how much energy you need to expend to

keep them operating and get a feel for what it really takes to power everything.” Reflecting on NASWF’s energy conservation efforts over the past two years, Parker is optimistic that the event will help people focus on continuing conservation efforts. “Having so many people participate in the race itself is what we’re hoping will continue to raise awareness about energy conservation,” Parker said. “We’ve made strides in cost, consumption, and peak demand, and we’re creating a culture of conservation.”

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

‘Silence Hides Violence’ ‘If you see something, say something’ From Fleet & Family Support Center Family Advocacy Program

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Naval Air Station Pensacola is joining other installations across the country and overseas in promoting awareness and prevention of domestic abuse. This year’s theme is “Silence Hides Violence.” There will be several events and campaigns taking place on base throughout the month, beginning with the “Know the Signs” campaign. Domestic abuse is not limited to acts of violence; it also includes behaviors that involve attempting to exert power and control over a partner. These behaviors usually precede violent acts, and can be subtle. A collection of signs will be rotated across various locations on base. These signs feature messages of warning signs that could be indicators of an unhealthy or even abusive relationship, such as “I feel like I am always walking on eggshells,” “My friends worry about me in this relationship,” “She said she would hurt herself if I leave her,” and “He has all the power in this relationship.” Controlling and abusive behaviors can be done by both males and females, and oftentimes the partner on the receiving end doesn’t know what to do or where to turn for help. The Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) offers a variety of services and resources to service members and their dependents, including individual and relationship counseling, educational classes, and also has domestic violence and sexual assault victim advocates available who can take a restricted or unrestricted report of abuse. Restricted reports allow victims to speak confidentially with an advocate about their options, get information about military protective orders and domestic violence injunctions, access resources both on base and within the community, and most importantly, to be able to tell their story to someone who can support, affirm and just listen. In a restricted report there will be no command involvement and all information given will be kept strictly between only the advocate and the advocate’s direct supervisor. Even if a person is not sure whether their relationship problems qualify as “domestic violence,” an advocate will be happy to speak with him or her about the situation and provide referrals if appropriate. “With all the resources the military has for service members and family members, it is wise to take care of small problems in a relationship as soon as they come up,” said Darla Huffman, FFSC clinical supervisor. “Fleet and Family Support Center offers relationship counseling whether it’s just to tweak a small issue or to renegotiate roles or power differentials within

an intimate relationship. Chaplains, medical providers, Military Family Life Consultants (MFLACs) and Military One Source (www. military onesource. mil/) are all available to help you have meaningful and satisfying personal relationships.” What you should know about domestic violence: Domestic violence is not just a private family matter. It is a crime with serious repercussions for loved ones, relatives, friends, co-workers, acquaintances and the entire community. Keeping quiet about what you observe could be very dangerous for a victim of abuse, and also encourages them to remain silent as well. Domestic violence can involve threats, forced isolation, pushing, punching, slap-

lessness and find the task of leaving their partner and starting a new life to be overwhelming. Often, the abusive partner is a parent and any decision to take children away from one of their parents is difficult. Many times a victim still feels strong emotional ties to their intimate partner and wants to believe that things will get better. Sometimes religious or cultural values pressure a victim to keep the family together at all costs. The reality of domestic violence homicides, which often occur after a victim has left their abuser, means that leaving doesn’t always mean safety. Abusive partners typically make excuses for their violence, claiming loss of control due to alcohol or drug use or ex-

ping, choking, sexual assault and assault with weapons. It is rarely a one-time occurrence and usually escalates in frequency and severity over time. Domestic violence can be deadly. In more than 40 percent of all murders, the perpetrator was the victim’s intimate partner. Many are perplexed as to why a victim doesn’t simply walk out on their abusive partner. “Why didn’t they leave?” is a common question concerning domestic violence, and it is based on the false assumption that leaving always means safety. No one likes being abused, but leaving the relationship may be more difficult than it seems for a variety of reasons. Victims of domestic violence tend to remain in abusive relationships because of fear – fear for their lives, fear for the safety of their children and fear of homelessness. Abusers often have means of controlling their victims, such as denying them access to money, transportation or even communication. After lengthy periods of abuse, victims may develop a feeling of help-

treme stress. External factors like these do not cause domestic violence, although they may intensify already existing violent behavior. Abuse is used as a choice to control their partner. What you can do to help: Don’t let your silence hide violence – make the call. Is there someone you know who you worry may be in an abusive situation? Maybe you haven’t actually witnessed violence but you suspect something might be going on. Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at (800) 799-SAFE and talk to the staff about your concerns. They can give you guidance on how to proceed, and put you in touch with programs and services in your area that assist victims of domestic violence and their children. Or call the FFSC at 452-5990, where FFSC Family Advocacy Program counselors are available to assess your situation.

and gather all the information you can about domestic violence. Lend a sympathetic ear: Letting those affected know that you care and are willing to listen may be the best help you can offer. Try talking to them about the problem of domestic violence in a general way. Tell them this problem concerns you. Don’t force the issue, but allow them to confide in you at their own pace. Keep your mind open and really listen to what they tell you. Never blame them for what’s happening or underestimate their fear of potential danger. Share your knowledge: Let them know they are not alone and that caring people are available to help. Encourage them to seek the assistance of domestic violence advocates at the FFSC or at the National Domestic Violence Hotline. They can help a victim of abuse plan for safety and identify options. Be a friend “in deed:” Provide whatever you can: transportation, child care or financial assistance. Your friend may need to rely on family or friends for temporary housing. Be very careful when offering and providing safety in your home. A domestic violence victim frequently faces the most physical danger when attempting to flee. Be very discreet and talk to a local domestic violence program about the best way to handle this. Report any emergency: It cannot be overemphasized that domestic violence is a crime that can result in serious physical injury and even death. If you know that a violent incident is occurring, call the police immediately. Calling the police does not always mean the abuser will be put in jail, and you can make the call anonymously. It is simply the most effective way to protect the victim and children from immediate harm. If you see something, say something: • Is someone you know being abused? • Does your friend have visible injuries, such as unexplained black eyes, bruises or suspicious broken bones? • Does your friend have invisible emotional injuries, such as a lack of self-worth and independence? • Have you noticed changes in the behavior of your neighbor or their children? • Does your co-worker experience frequent “accidents” that cause absences from work or other activities? • Does one of your close relatives exert an unusual amount of control over their partner’s activities or manipulate contact with friends and family? • Does your friend demonstrate extreme jealousy? • Does someone in your family ridicule their partner publicly? When someone is experiencing domestic violence, they often first turn to friends or family members for help. By learning more about domestic violence, you can provide life-saving information to someone who is experiencing abuse. Silence hides violence, so don’t hesitate to speak up. Help is available: • Fleet and Family Support Center has counselors and victim advocates. Speak with a counselor or victim advocate at the Fleet and Family Support Center or a healthcare provider at a military treatment facility about restricted and unrestricted reporting options. Onboard NAS Pensacola, call Fleet and Family Support Center at 452-5990. • Military healthcare providers • Base chaplains • Base security • Military chain of command • Military One Source: (800) 3429647, www. militaryonesource.com. • National Domestic Violence Hotline: (800) 799-SAFE, www.thehotline.org. Your first step toward helping someone who is being abused is to break the silence. Anyone concerned for the safety of someone who is experiencing domestic violence should call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at (800) 799-7233, TTY (800) 787-3224.

Naval Exchange expands holiday plan to give back to customers By Kristine M. Sturkie Navy Exchange Service Command Public Affairs

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) – The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCom) announced Sept. 27 that it some changes will be made to its second Navy Blue Holiday celebration. The Navy Blue Holiday is a time to celebrate the NEX’s connection to the Navy and Navy families, emphasize Navy values and to give back to deserving NEX customers. “This year, our Navy Blue Holiday is going to be even bigger and better,” said retired Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi,

chief executive officer of NEXCom. “We are very excited to bring our customers more savings, quality and value, and most importantly, say thank you for being a loyal customer of your NEX.” The Navy Blue Holiday season will kick off this year on the Navy’s 238th birthday, Oct. 13. The celebration includes one of the largest single customer giveaways NEXCom officials have ever conducted. NEXCom has partnered with its vendor community to give away 1,000 NEX $100 gift cards. Customers will be able to enter the drawing beginning Oct. 9 at local NEX stores, in-

cluding the NASP Corry Station Mall and the NEX Avation Plaza, or online at www.myNavyExchange.com. “We are excited to be able to give away $100,000 in NEX gift cards to our customers,” Bianchi said. “I know there are many other shopping options available. We are thrilled to be able to thank our customers for their support throughout the years. It is our honor to give back, because our mission is our customers.”

One thing that hasn’t changed is that customers will continue to find a great selection of items in all price ranges including prestige brands, national mass brands and private brands at substantial savings, plus no sales tax on NEX purchases. Throughout the holiday season, the NEX will offer other savings opportunities and promotions that will allow customers to save even more. In addition, based on the success of last year’s afloat Navy Blue Holiday sale, NEXCom will once again be offering special pricing on the most popular gifts through its web store to Sailors and Marines at

sea prior to Thanksgiving. From Nov. 24 to Nov. 27, afloat personnel will be able to take advantage of a sale designed just for them. “Once again, we tailored the items for sale to be ones that would appeal most to Sailors and Marines at sea,” Bianchi said. “They will find electronics, video games, outerwear and holiday gifts that can be sent home to loved ones.” Afloat Sailors and Marines can also sign up to win one of the $100 NEX gift cards that are being given away.
