As of now, base vehicle decals are still required onboard NASP... Although some information concerning the cessation of motor vehicle decals has been released, there is still no official policy for stopping the issuance of decals, according to official Navy sources and Dick Wright, NAS Pensacola deputy security director. The base is awaiting further instruction from CNRSE before any changes in policy are implemented. Until that time, vehicle decals are still being issued and are required.

Ceremony marks stand down of NLSO Central By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

A look back at the past 20 years was the focus during a disestablishment ceremony for Naval Legal Service Office (NLSO) Central Oct. 1 at the NASP CPO Club. The stand down is part of a reorganization plan announced last year by the Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAGC), said former NLSO Central CO Cmdr. Laurin N. Eskridge, who is taking on a new role as officer in charge of the newly formed Defense Service Office (DSO) Southeast Detachment Pensacola and Branch Office Gulfport. Similar ceremonies were conducted around the world, Eskridge said, as the eight NLSOs headquartered in Pensacola, Norfolk; Bremerton; Jacksonville; San Diego; Washington, D.C.; Naples, Italy; and Yokosuka, Japan, become four DSOs headquartered in San Diego, Washington, D.C., Norfolk; and Yokosuka. The Pensacola and Gulfport offices will report to Norfolk, she said. Lt. Denise Romeo, who served as master of ceremonies, said organizers of the Pensacola ceremony wanted to pay tribute to NLSO Central’s history of providing legal services to active-duty military members, dependents and retirees throughout the South Central United States. “Today’s ceremony is quite unusual as it does not involve a change of command,” Romeo said. “While there are no formal requirements for such a ceremony, we thought it would be appropriate to recognize the rich heritage and lives touched by

New T-45 training jets arrive at NASP By Lt. Matt Liashek VT-86 PAO

NAS Pensacola’s Training Squadron 86 (VT-86) received two newly modified T-45 Goshawk trainer jets this month. The squadron expects to receive a total of 19 jet aircraft in order to support the future undergraduate military flight officer (UMFO) syllabus. The modific a t i o n s include various cockpit and avionic changes created to support the new Virtual Mission Training System (VTMS). The new training syllabus should begin in October 2013. The new UMFO syllabus will allow students to transition directly from the T-6 Texan to the T-45 Goshawk, eliminating the aging T-39 Sabreliner from the training pipeline. Students will receive more comprehensive training and accumulate more tactical jet flight time prior to entering the fleet. “The new syllabus is a complete overhaul of how we teach tactical mission planning and execution,” Lt. Josh Heisler, who helped design the UMFO syllabus, explained. “While the newly modified aircraft are externally

very similar to the T-45s currently in use, the interior cockpits and avionics have been significantly improved. Existing T-45 aircraft were taken from the Navy’s inventory and modified to support VMTS. New throttle grips and a rear hand controller were added with “hands on throttle and stick” (HOTAS) capability, allowing students to manipulate the aircraft systems w i t h o u t removing their hands from the controls. A new flight recording system allows for more information to be analyzed during the post-flight debrief. Multiple antennas were also added to provide a data link capability between the aircraft and a ground station. These modifications and additions will enable the squadron to expand its training syllabus and enhance the training environment. Several features of VMTS will provide more efficient and cost-effective naval flight officer training. At the heart of the system lies a synthetic radar simulating a fleet like APG-73 radar. This radar will allow aircrew to visualize simulated targets on their radar

Detention facility comes to NASP By Gretchen DeVuyst NASP PAO Intern

On Sept. 24, the NAS Pensacola security department was approved to house five detainees and have an official detention facility for men and women in the Navy in legal trouble. This new detention facility has the capability to house up to five people who are on trial or those in need of a pre-trial confinement facility from Jacksonville. The first detainee was brought in Sept. 25. These detainees can be held for up to 24 hours during the work week, or 72 hours on weekends. There was a four month break between the old brig and new detention facility. During that time the official

NATTC lends a hand at DeLuna Fest By AECS Thomas Hebert NATTC PAO

Improvements to the T-45 Goshawk training jet include a rear hand controller with “hands on throttle and stick” (HOTAS) capability.

During the month of September, staff and student volunteers from Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) assisted the Pensacola-area United Service Organizations (USO) and organizers of the third annual DeLuna Fest with the set-up of the music festival, held on Pensacola

Beach Sept. 21-23. It was the first time that NATTC volunteers supported the event. Throughout the month, more than 50 volunteers a day donated their time and efforts setting up, breaking down and providing general support. On the actual concert dates, as many as 100 volunteers assisted behind the scene. “It was a great

opportunity for the staff and students to be involved in the community and also enjoy the fruits of our labor,” said instructor AWC Tommy Henderson. “This project was an enormous undertaking for us, but we enjoyed every minute of it.” The USO has been involved in the DeLuna Fest concert series from

attack displays, and to execute training missions without the need for an actual radar or dedicated red air support. On deck, an instructor ground station will beam virtual targets to the aircraft via data link and display the appropriate air-to-air, air-toground, or electronic warfare threat information. The system can also run on a stand-alone internal mode, without input from the ground station, for situations when the aircraft are operating away from their home base. “VMTS will save the Navy

Six new operational flight trainers (OFTs) will provide simulator training to support the syllabus. Advanced debriefing stations will take advantage of the increased data recorded throughout each flight, including a complete mission replay with all communications and tactical display information.

NLSO Central over several decades.” Guests included NASP Commander Capt. Christopher Plummer and Executive Officer Cmdr. David Jasso as well as past and present members of NLSO Central. Breaking with tradition, Donna Landry, a civilian with NLSO, was recruited to ring the bell for Eskridge’s “arrival” at the beginning of the ceremony. “We wanted to include everyone, and Donna is a plank owner, so I thought it was especially fitting that she be part of the ceremony,” Eskridge said. Other ceremony participants included ATAN David Pietri, who delivered a distinctive solo of the national anthem,” and NASP Command Chaplain Cmdr. David Gibson, who gave the invocation. In her remarks, Eskridge spelled out the details of the changes. The sole mission of the DSO will be to provide defense services in military justice proceedings and administrative boards. Additionally, DSO judge advocates will provide advice to service members on nonjudicial punishment (NJP) and adverse personnel actions. Legal assistance services will remain unchanged but will be merged under the Region Legal Service Office (RLSO). Those services include simple estate planning, general family law advice, basic foreclosure, consumer finance, military naturalization, military benefits (including SCRA), powers of attorney, notary services, disaster relief and other basic services as resources allow. Eskridge said the basic goal of the reorganization is to create a more focused and experienced defense bar

advocates will no longer be sent to remote duty stations for their first stations, Eskridge said. Instead, they will start out at training at hubs, including Pensacola, where they will get two years of comprehensive training in prosecuting and defending cases, providing legal assistance and advising Navy commands. With the help of a slide show, Eskridge summarized some of the milestones in the history of NLSO Central, including awards, renovation projects, mobilizations and hurricanes. She paid tribute to some of the unique individuals who have worked at NLSO Central and highlighted the spirit of camaraderie with examples of activities such as holiday decorating, volunteer work, recreational pursuits and the annual chili cook off. Although this change marks the end of an era and she expects to face many challenges in the weeks and months ahead, Eskridge has confidence that the realignment will be successful. “I believe we are going to enhance the effectiveness and the efficiency of our core mission – provide defense services and legal assistance while also increasing our independence and the confidence in the public in our ability to provide these services,” she said. After completing her remarks, Eskridge formerly marked the disestablishment of NSLO Central with a salute to staff members followed by a traditional commander’s “departure.” Both legal offices – RLSO SE Legal Assistance and Defense Service Office SE Detachment Pensacola – will remain at 161 Turner St., Bldg. 624, for the immediate future.

Additionally, in exchange for the support, the organizers contributed a portion of the proceeds back to the USO. “The best part is that the Sailors are helping their fellow shipmates out because this year DeLuna Fest organizers are donating one dollar per ticket to the USO.

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

detainees in an unofficial detention facility. “It prevents rushing to get a person to JAX for pre-trial confinement, which often occurs late in the working day. Also, it allows the regional trial services a step between trial and confinement to a brig,” said Dick Wright, deputy security director at NASP. This building was previously a consolidated brig, which is used for long-term confinement. It was closed in July 2010 as part of Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC). In December 2010, the building was reopened as a functioning security department, which was inspected Sept. 20 and given permission Sept. 24 to make a cell block in the building a detention facility. The cell block had been untouched during the renovations to make the building a security department. According to Wright there are three levels of confinement in the U.S. Navy. • A consolidated brig for post-trial long confinement. • A pre-trial confinement facility for persons awaiting trial, which is short term. • And a detention facility which is a shortterm facility for someone on trial or temporary detention for persons awaiting transfer to a brig or pre-trial confinement facility.

Routines of marriage offer happy ending By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

One busy night after the children had gone to bed, I settled into my well-worn spot on the sofa for some mind-numbing television. “Can you believe this guy?” I asked my activeduty Navy husband, seated in his favorite recliner beside me. When no answer was forthcoming, I glanced over to witness an all-too-familiar scene: Deeply imbedded in the recliner’s cushions lay my husband of 19 years, sound asleep. Normally, I would giggle, turn the lights out around him and go to bed – a sort of revenge for being “abandoned” for the umpteenth time. He would eventually wake up alone in the dark and trudge upstairs to find me tee-heeing under the covers in our bed. But on this particular night, I gawked at my dreaming husband as if I was seeing this for the first time. Is this the man I married? Panic gripped my soul as I realized: We’ve changed. We’re tired, boring, predictable. We’re doomed. One evening in 1992, my husband-to-be and I were at an Italian café in Pittsburgh, sipping wine and falling in love. “I really want to travel,” I

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, the mother of three, has been a military spouse for 19 years (and running). Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. Molinari and her family are currently stationed at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, Fla. said. “Me too,” he said. “I want to live near the ocean,” he said. “Me too,” I said. “I don’t care about money, I just want happiness,” he said. “Me too!” I said.

It was a match made in heaven and our future was destined to be perfect. But maybe if we understood the reality of marriage our conversation would have been different: “I might have a lot of stretch marks,” I should have said. “That’s OK, we will just dim the lights,” he might have said. “I’m going to go bald, but ironically, hair will sprout out of my ears and nose,” he should have said. “I’m good with tweezers,” I might have said. “I’m going to deploy a lot, and will feel no embarrassment if my wife handles all the home repairs,” he should have said. “I won’t have a problem with that for the first 10 years or so, but then I’ll get really fed up,” I really wish I had said. But back then, we were not thinking about annoying habits, multiple PCSs and clogged drains. We were too busy planning our perfect life to be bothered with reality. Our unrealistic expectations persisted after we were engaged. “Oh pardon me!” my fiancée yelped after accidentally belching. Although he insisted he would never expel any kind of gas in front of me, it did not take long for his steely resolve to erode. Today, expelling gas is almost commonplace and happens as soon as the urge

beckons. Mid-sentence, under the covers, in the recliner. “Why do you have to burp while I am talking to you?” I have said. “I didn’t burp,” he has said, sincerely oblivious. Before marriage, I preened and pampered my fiancée like a primate, manicuring nails and plucking stray hairs to maintain his ruggedly handsome good looks. I thought this giddy nurturing stage would last forever; I had no idea that those stray hairs would later multiply so profusely that our grooming sessions now take place in the garage and involve the leaf blower. The pedicures have become completely intolerable because my husband’s left piggie toe now resembles a tiny hoof. One of the childen recently asked him if it was made out of wood. I had to draw the line somewhere. So what am I saying? Are we doomed because we have not met our premarital expectations? That night as I watched my husband dozing, I realized something very important: We did not meet our original expectations, we have exceeded them. Back when we were dreaming of a life of romance uninhibited by responsibility, stress and aging, we could not fully

comprehend the complexity and depth of the marital relationship. What we did not understand then is that romance is more than candlelight dinners and adventurous travel. The foundation of long-term romance is really commitment, companionship and comfort. Realizing this, my initial repulsion at the sight of my sleeping husband turned to adoration. And as I turned the lights out and sneaked upstairs to wait for him to wake up alone in the dark, I felt happy that our marriage is on an unexpected course to paradise.

Navy Energy Awareness Month

Showcasing Navy installation energy savings From NavFac SE

I

n October, Energy Awareness Month, throughout the nation, installations are showing how to carry out the Navy’s long-term commitment to saving energy, conserving water and building for a more efficient future. The United States 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. The 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 national security. In addition, regulations such as 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.

A revolution in lighting is taking place ... From NavFac SE

What about LED lighting? We’ve all seen light-emitting diode, or LED, lighting products come on the market in recent years. They are known for their long life, often 35,000 hours or more, but are they efficient? Well, that depends. The technology is improving rapidly and many companies are offering products, but some are better than others. Where many LED lamps are in the same fixture, a good design is required to dissipate heat so that the LEDs can operate efficiently and not degrade quickly. There is a wide range of fixture quality on the market, so be cautious about major investments and do some research before buying. LED products are generally more efficient than incandescent, so applications that have traditionally used incandescent lights, such as flashlights and Christmas lights, benefit from LED technology. In the case of flashlights, batteries last longer, and light can be directed more pre-

cisely. Some LED downlight products are as efficient as the best compact fluorescent products, and some LED general area lighting systems are almost as efficient as the best linear fluorescent systems, but the cost of LED is still high

High-tech LED lighting is replacing incandescent bulbs to provide more light with less heat – and significant energy savings.

compared to fluorescent. Since general lighting requires that many LED lamps be installed close together, do your research to make sure the fixture will last, and check on the warranty. LED lighting is becoming more common for outdoor night lighting. Because LEDs are so directional, fixtures can be designed to use considerably less energy than traditional high-intensity dis-

charge fixtures, and the long lamp life can save a lot of money on lamp replacements for hard-toreach locations. LEDs have many other useful attributes, including excellent dimming capability, compact size, no ultraviolet radiation emissions or warm-up time required, and good color rendition for most models. Though it’s still in the early stages, LED technology is transforming the lighting industry. The Department of Energy has followed the evolution of the technology and produced volumes of useful information. A simple internet search on “DoE LED” can get you started. Today’s fluorescent lighting: The old-timers on base (all but the newest recruits) grew up with very different fluorescent lighting than we have now. Some of the improvements include: The hum and flicker are gone. Early versions of fluorescent lighting used magnetic ballasts that produced light in the same 60 cycle per second pattern as a building’s elec-

tricity. Today’s solid state electronic ballasts operate at 24,000 cycles per second and higher, eliminating the flicker that was once noticeable to many people. The electronic ballasts are not prone to vibrating, which has silenced the audible hum of lights past. Colors are more accurate under the newer lights. The color rendering index (CRI) expresses how accurate colors look under a light source. The scale goes from 0 to 100, and higher values are better. Old style fluorescents had a CRI of 50 to 60, making colors look dull and complexions look gray. Today’s fluorescents often have CRIs in the 90s. Efficiency is considerably higher. Today’s fluorescents produce the same light level for 30 to 40 percent less energy than those that were common just 15 years ago. Have you noticed the improvements? You’d be surprised how often energy efficiency upgrades also benefit quality of life.

It’s From Craig Lewis Fire Prevention Chief Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast

The reality is that when fire strikes, your home could be engulfed in smoke and flames in just a few minutes. It is important to have a home fire escape plan that prepares your family to think fast and get out quickly when the smoke alarm sounds. What if your first escape route is blocked by smoke or flames? That's why having two ways out is such a key part of your plan. This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme, “Have Two Ways Out,” focuses on the importance of fire escape planning and practice. Fire Prevention Week takes place once a year, but fire prevention practices should be in effect year-round. Don’t believe the old adages that “it will never happen to me” or “it always happens to someone else.” Fire can happen to anyone, including you. During the next several weeks we will be having articles in the Gosport; take the information seriously and to heart. For questions on fire prevention and safety-related matters, fire station tours or presentations, contact the Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast fire prevention department at 452-2898.

Whiting CDC receives yet another five-year accreditation From NASWF PAO

Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s Child Development Center recently received another fiveyear accreditation, displaying the quality care that is the hallmark of child care Navywide. The accreditation certificate was the result of more than a yearlong effort by the staff. The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) is the certifying agency and has been establishing the benchmarks of quality child care for almost 30 years. The accreditation process is voluntary, and NAS Whiting Field’s CDC has been participation in the process since the early 1990s, according to CDC Director Mary Marcoux. While the process is difficult and time consuming, she feels the end result is well worth the effort. “It gives our families the satisfaction that everything is the way it should be. It shows that we give quality care to the children,” Marcoux explained. With five binders of checklists and documentation, plus additional binders in each classroom; the process is obviously exhausting. The process reviews such diverse elements of child care as teacher to student ratios, child safety, drinking water quality, food menus, available first aid and training, and even pest control. The paperwork and supporting evidence have to be in order before the site visit can be scheduled. The validator spends all day at the site, not only reviewing the facility as compared to the documentation, but also observes

the children and their interaction with the teachers. Marcoux emphasizes that there is no fooling the examiners. The reactions of the children will show if there is any change in the routine or classroom environment.

“ Getting the certification is a

relief, but it doesn’t stop, because we have to keep that same level up.”

— Mary Marcoux NASWF Child Development Center director “You have to do things the right way all the time. If you do something different for the inspection, they will see it through how the kids respond,” she said. “Getting the certification is a relief, but it doesn’t stop, because we have to keep that same level up.” The results show that the CDC did very well. Eighty percent is passing throughout each of the inspection areas. The NAS Whiting Field CDC never scored below a 93 percent, and in fact scored more than 100 percent in several areas where they were able to accumulate points based on emerging criteria that is not yet required, but will be. The hardest part for Marcoux was the waiting. The

site visit, which is the final step in the evaluative process, occurred in April, however, the CDC didn’t receive the final results for more than three months. “It feels good. We were all a team and we all came together for this. We worked hard, and it showed,” she said. About 6,500 day care centers across the country carry the NAEYC accreditation, and the certification is common with Navy CDCs. Naval Station Jacksonville went through their process about the same time as NAS Whiting Field, and NAS Pensacola is preparing for their site visit now. It is a valuable tool in helping to show military members that the Navy is concerned with providing the top quality attention for their children that their service deserves. NAEYC stresses that their ‘stamp of approval’ helps families identify programs that provide the strong learning environment that kids need to enjoy “greater readiness for and success in school.” Morale, Welfare, and Recreation Director Joe Vukovcan concurs. “The NAEYC accreditation process validates that NAS Whiting Field’s CDC is providing not only a high quality early childhood education, but also ensures other services, such as health, nutrition, social skills, and well-being are of equal high quality to help form well-rounded individuals,” he said. “Parents should feel that when they entrust the Child Development Center with the care and education of their children, all their needs are being addressed.”

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

‘One Voice Against Domestic Violence Makes A Difference’ ‘If you see something, say something’ What you can do to help – break the silence, make the call: Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at (800) 7997233 and talk to the staff about your concerns. They can put you in touch with programs and services in your area that assist victims of domestic violence and their children. Become informed: Visit the National Domestic Violence Hotline website at www.thehotline.org 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 dan-

From Fleet & Family Support Center

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. Domestic violence can involve threats, forced isolation, pushing, punching, slapping, 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. More than 40 percent of people who are murdered are killed by their 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. 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. 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. 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 extreme 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.

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

“Beating Hearts: Stories of Domestic Violence” is scheduled to open today, Oct. 5, and run through Dec. 9 at Pensacola Museum of Art (PMA), 407 S. Jefferson St. The exhibit is a collection of photographs and text that reflect the individual experiences of victims of abuse. The stories were documented by Louisiana residents Kate Sartor Hilburn and Terrie Queen Autrey, both of whom have been active in domestic violence prevention and education on the Gulf Coast. The PMA is presenting the exhibition in conjunction with Pensacola’s Favor House. For more information, call 432-6247. ger. Share your knowledge: Let them know they are not alone and that caring people are available to help. Encourage them to “Break the Silence” and seek the assistance of domestic violence advocates 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.

Center of excellence visits NHP clinic By Ens. Cynthia Nicholson NHP PAO

Recently, officials from the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) visited Capt. Ed Jorgensen, doctor of osteopathic medicine, at Naval Health Branch Clinic NAS Pensacola. Jorgensen is a family medicine doctor that has incorporated orthopedic medicine therapeutics (OMT) into the treatment of his patients. OMT includes a series of assessment techniques that evaluate pain and determine the source of deep tissue and joint pain. Once the source can be identified, Jorgensen uses adjustment techniques to normalize the anatomy and treat pain without the use of medication and surgery. The goal of the visit was to gain a better understanding of the techniques used by Jorgensen in his OMT program. NICoE is an organization in Bethesda, Md., founded to respond to the psychological health issues and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) seen in the personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. NICoE hosts patients for

four weeks, where an interdisciplinary team oversees their care in an inpatient setting to optimize healing. According to Dr. Cherina Cyborski,

their goal is to see the patient normalize as much as possible. When asked how their visit had gone, both visitors, providers on the

interdisciplinary team, Dr. Lisa Smith and Dr. Cyborski said in unison, “Fantastic.” “The visit has been inspiring, most of my patients primary concerns are pain,” Cyborski said. “It affects their sleep, their cognition and their overall wellness; here, we have learned new ways to treat their pain.” Jorgensen found the NICoE visit meaningful and productive. “It’s a great opportunity to give them more tools for their toolbox,” he said. During NICoE’s visit Jorgensen focused on physical exam skills to better evaluate pain syndromes. He believes OMT is a better therapy for joint pain, which many of NICoE’s TBI patients may have after the shockwave of a blast alters the anatomy. Both NICoE and Jorgensen are believers in patient-centered healthcare. Treating the pain of a patient can completely alter the patient’s psychological, behavioral and spiritual healing, thereby assisting the patient to return to a normal functioning life. To learn more about Jorgensen’s techniques, visit his website at www.omt.us.com.

Air Force pilot meets the child his co-pilot never knew – 68 years later From Steve Paschall 479th Flying Training Group historian

At a recent reunion for the Air Force’s 479th Flying Training Group (FTG), an amazing meeting took place between a former pilot and the child of his co-pilot, who was killed in action during a desperate World War II mission. During the weekend of Sept. 20-22, veterans of the 479th FTG came together for the Sept. 21 NAS Pensacola’s National POW/MIA Day Observance at Barrancas National Cemetery, the dedication of the Heritage Room of the 479 FTG, the combat system officers (CSOs) graduation of Class 12-15 and the annual Air Force Ball. At the ball, Col. Neil Allen recounted the story of U.S. Army Capt. Robert Mims, who was shot down Feb. 5, 1944, in a strike against German V-1 “buzz bomb” rocket launching positions in France.

Mims saw six of 18 planes in his squadron A Martin Marauder B-26B wanted to go into, and bomber over Europe, 1944. took it straight to it,” go down in 60 seconds. Mims recalled. “As I Hit by flak, the air- Air Force photo craft’s right engine was destroyed and fuel approached and set up for a landing I was was running into the fuselage. With the getting fired at by a flak battery on the field aircraft rapidly losing altitude, Mims and I hadn’t seen. The only thing I could do Jackson held the plane steady so the crew was fire back at them, so I pressed the (gun) button as I went over them at about could bail out. Mims could smell gas and oil, and the 200 feet high. “I could see the whites of their eyes; they B-26 had a reputation of bursting into flames. It was evident to both men that thought I was going to land on them. All the plane would probably burst into the way in I was praying. I had one thought flames during the crash landing. Since in mind: ‘please, God, don’t let this airJackson had a wife and 4-month-old child plane burn.’ I landed about 200 yards past he had never seen, the decision was made the battery and they came down and picked

me up. I became a prisoner of war.” As the Germans put Mims in the back of a truck, he made a heartbreaking discovery. Jackson’s parachute hadn’t opened and the co-pilot had been killed upon impact. His body was in the back of the truck. In 2012, 68 years later, Mims answered the phone one day to speak with Lois Jackson, the daughter his co-pilot had never known. The two finally met for the first time during the 479th FTG reunion weekend. Also in attendance during the weekend were three other World War II veterans and with their families. Col. Al Tucker, a P-38 pilot and former POW; Brigadier Gen. Henry Newcomer, former commander of the 451 Bombardment Squadron; and Staff Sgt. Jake Larsen, a mechanic for the 451 Bombardment Squadron.

Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show 2012 Start planning now for the annual Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show, which will take place onboard NASP

Nov. 2, 3 For more information on the show, bleacher, box and Flight Line Club seating and FAQs, visit www.naspairshow.com.

Tour stretches from sea to farm List of October events offers reasons to visit Santa Rosa County From Beaches to Woodlands Tour

Corn and hay mazes, pier fishing, peanuts and pumpkin patches, butterflies, horses, trains, festivals and spooky fun are once again center stage for the ninth annual Beaches to Woodlands Tour of Santa Rosa County. “The joy of fall and this tour is the opportunity we all get to enjoy fabulous, wholesome events in our own backyard,” said tour coordinator, Karen Harrell. “The tour is comparable to an extended fall festival with about 40 events and venues that touch all four corners of Santa Rosa County.” Sponsored by the Tourist Development Council, the selfguided Beaches to Woodlands Tour is designed to showcase the many attractions of the area during a key shoulder season. Most of the events are free or low-cost and family friendly. This weekend features two tour staples, the Farmer’s Opry Classic Country Music Festival and the Jay Peanut Festival, a renowned event that draws thousands from across the region.

The Fenner McConnell/Mark Wantz Century Cycling Ride in Milton is one of the Beaches to Woodlands Tour events. This year’s race is scheduled for Oct. 20. Photo courtesy of Beaches to Woodlands Tour
