Navy College Program Afloat receives major upgrades By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) Public Affairs

As part of the continued transformation of the Navy’s Voluntary Education Program, the Navy College Program for Afloat College Education (NCPACE) Distance Learning (DL) has transitioned to individual enrollment Oct. 1 as announced in NAVAD-

MIN 243/17. The NCPACE DL courses are self-contained (no internet connectivity is required to complete the course), and are available at any time for eligible Sailors assigned to type two and type four sea duty. Sailors enroll using the new NCPACE DL application process available in the My Education Application module on the Navy College Program (NCP) website. A major change to the program is that all NC-

Raise your awareness of breast cancer in October By Jason Bortz Naval Hospital Pensacola Public Affairs Officer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) is taking the opportunity to educate patients about the dangers of breast cancer and the importance of getting checked. According to the American Cancer Society, about 230,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 and approximately 40,000 died from it. Approximately 2,300 men were also diagnosed with breast cancer. “The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are being a woman and getting older,” said Michelle Wilkes, breast health specialist, NHP. “The best defense against breast cancer is early detection with a breast self-exam, clinical breast exam and a mammogram. Think of screening exams as an important gift for yourself and your loved ones.” A mammogram can often detect

PACE DL courses will now be funded using the same rate authorized for Tuition Assistance courses; $250 per semester hour (SH) or equivalent. Sailors may only receive funding for up to 16 SH or equivalent, per fiscal year through TA, NCPACE DL or any combination of the two. NCPACE DL courses now also require the same grade attainment standards as TA courses at all levels to avoid tuition reimbursement to the government. See NCPACE on page 2

TOPGUN at NAS Pensacola By Ashley Laliberty NASP PAO Intern

NAS Pensacola (NASP) recently welcomed the U.S. Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor (SFTI) program, TOPGUN, to conduct training over the next few weeks. Students from various squadrons are visiting NASP to participate in this 13-

week course. The rigorous training includes operating simulation aircraft; F/A-18 Hornets, Super Hornets and F-16 Fighting Falcons. Following the completion and graduation of the course, students complete the training See TOPGUN on page 2

Fire Prevention Week – Oct. 8-14 – kicks off Commentary from Craig Lewis Fire Prevention Chief Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast (F&ESGC)

“Every year in the second week of October we discuss fire prevention and ways to protect yourself and your family. I am happy to say that as far as the Navy goes, we have done very well in preventing fires and loss of life. “In local communities throughout the United States, it is a different story. It is sad to report that we average six to seven

deaths a week due to fire – this is an unacceptable number and even though it is down from 2014, when it averaged almost nine per day, it is far from good enough. “This is 2017 and with all the technology available – the various types of smoke and heat detectors, installed systems for residential and business to include residential / home sprin-

kler systems that are available – these numbers are still too high. “There are fire safety devices to fit every budget and, in many cities and counties, there are smoke detectors available for free which may be installed by the local fire department. “I would like you to take the time during this week and throughout this month to ask other family members and

friends if they have a working smoke alarm in their home, if not strongly encourage them to get one and not to delay – it could save their life and the lives of their family. “Let’s get back to the basics: • Have a working smoke detector and test it at least monthly – if it beeps, get a new battery before removing the old one. There have been many cases where people have not replaced the battery and it resulted in death – don’t be a statistic • Know and plan two ways out of your home and place of business

and TRICARE Extra both stateside and overseas. Stateside, TRICARE Select will be a self-managed, preferred provider network option. You will not be required to have a primary care manager (PCM) and therefore you can visit any TRICARE-authorized provider for services covered by TRICARE without a referral. If you live overseas, TRICARE Overseas Program Select will be a preferred provider organization-styled plan that provides access to both network and non-network TRICARE-authorized providers for medically necessary TRICARE covered services. TRICARE Select adopts a number of improvements, including additional preventive care services previously only offered to TRICARE Prime beneficiaries. TRICARE Prime: TRICARE Prime is a managed care program option. An assigned PCM provides most of your care. When you need specialty care, your PCM will refer you to a specialist. Active-duty service members and their family members do not pay anything when referred to a network provider by their PCM. All others pay annual enrollment fees and network copayments. Enrollment: All current TRICARE beneficiaries will be automatically enrolled into plans on Jan. 1, 2018, as long as they are eligible. TRICARE Prime enrollees will remain in TRICARE Prime. TRICARE Standard and TRICARE Extra beneficiaries will be enrolled in TRICARE Select. During 2018, you can continue to choose to enroll in or change coverage plans. In fall 2018, TRICARE will introduce an annual open enrollment period. During this period, you will choose whether to continue or change your coverage for the following year. Each year, the open enrollment period will begin on the Monday of the second full week in November and run through the Monday of the second full week in December. Are you ready? Take action now. You can begin to prepare for the upcoming changes now by: • Signing up for a DS Logon • Updating your personal information in DEERS In the coming months, more information will be available at www.tricare.mil/changes. To stay informed, sign up for e-mail alerts. You can also get alerts by signing up for eCorrespondence in milConnect. By staying informed, you will be ready for a smooth transition with TRICARE.

“This is a significant upgrade to the NCPACE DL program that greatly increases the number of schools available to deployable Sailors,” said Lt. Cmdr. Nick Turner, deputy director of the Navy’s Voluntary Education Program. “We’re anticipating an increase in the number of schools involved and an increase in classes available at every level for our Sailors on sea duty.” Instructor-led (IL) NCPACE classes will continue to operate under contract support and NCPACE command coordinators will use the NCPACE section of the NCP website to select courses, pre-register Sailors and order courses. IL courses do not fall under the funding cap restrictions of TA and DL courses for Sailors. Sailors who have completed the training and met elNHP from page 1

Wilkes, who was the first breast cancer navigator in Pensacola, will ensure beneficiaries receive everything they need, both physical and emotionally. “Fighting breast cancer is not just a physical battle, but an emotional one as well,” Wilkes said. “I am here, along with the staff at NHP, to

help those diagnosed with breast cancer through a very stressful event in their lives.” Throughout the month of October, NHP will be posting facts and information about breast cancer on its Facebook page. The hospital will also be hosting several events throughout the month of October to raise awareness on breast cancer including a Breast Cancer Awareness Walk Oct. 20 at 11:30 a.m. Beneficiaries enrolled at NHP can call their Medical Home Port Team at 505-7170 to schedule a mammogram.

syllabus requirements to become informal instructors, capable of teaching others. The unit is based in Fallon, Nev., where there is higher altitude and thinner air than the Gulf Coast. In general, jets perform efficiently flying over water at sea level and it sets the tone for their demanding training, since this is typically where they are going to be executing their missions. The program gives the instructors and students many opportunities to work with different areas of the fleet. Traveling to different areas throughout training allows instructors to talk to different squadrons, give lectures and refresh everyone’s understanding of different aspects of the jets. “It’s the toughest training you’ll ever do in naval aviation, and from there you’ll go back out to teach the fleet. It’s very humbling in that manner and it’s definitely an honor,” TOPGUN instructor Lt. Nick Laviano told a group of reporters at a briefing Sept. 21. “I love my job, it is always something I have wanted to do and it’s great.”

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

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

College tours and Trojan Wars: Surviving the ordeal By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

“Odysseus, eat your heart out,” I thought, while driving our daughter Lilly to college visits recently. Although I would not encounter any cyclopses or sea monsters, I knew I was embarking on a grueling ordeal. Over the course of our fourday trip, I would put 1,800 miles on our minivan, log over 40,000 Fitbit steps on five campus tours, nail-bite through Lilly’s four interviews, swipe mini bottles of lotion from three cheap hotels and eat at least four tuna sandwiches. According to the National Association for College Admission Counseling, 77 percent of colleges in the United States rate campus visits as a top recruitment strategy for prospective freshmen. After more than 25 college tours between our three children, I knew the schools we were about to visit would try every trick to get their hooks in us and that I would need to muster the strength to resist falling into their traps. At each school, we went to the admissions offices for

information sessions and interviews. My goal was to stay awake – thank goodness for complimentary K-Cups – and to be realistic about Lilly’s interviews. When one proclaimed, interviewer “Lilly is perfect for our school!” I knew he really meant, “Lilly seems like a real peach, but don’t be surprised if we drop her like first period Physics once we get her transcripts.” Of course, we were assigned to tour guides that were fresh-faced and overly enthusiastic. “Hi! I’m P.J.! I double-major in Global Mediation Strategies and Interpretive Dance, with a minor in Sustainable Mollusk Farming, and I am the Assistant Treasurer of the Quidditch Club. Follow me while I walk backwards like a trained circus monkey!” And our tour groups, which always seemed to include a kid with purple hair, a jock with a gum-chewing dad and someone from Long Island, followed like sheep to slaughter. The parents glanced sideways at each other, muttering redundant thank yous every time we held doors for each other. We hit the usual campus

Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers, including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. spots like libraries and student centers, but our guides had a few strategic surprises up the scrunched sleeves of their spirit wear. They wisely steered clear of stark reality such as old Biology build-

ings that smelled like pickles and frat houses with permanently tapped kegs in front yards and instead pointed us toward 3-D printers, digitally illuminated mock trading floors, online laundry monitoring systems, colorful rock walls and staged dorm rooms. Even though my older children’s dorm rooms reek of nacho cheese and are littered with dirty socks, the dorm rooms on our college tours were color-coordinated, obsessively organized, freshly Febreezed and adorned with gratuitous advertising signs reading, “Brought to you by Bed, Bath and Beyond.” They explained that we could take advantage of “gender fluid” housing options. Furthermore, if we only fill out a seven-page background check and sign the necessary legal release forms, our child would be permitted to live with someone of the opposite sex. No matter how one feels about progressive housing options, one should never use the term “fluid” when referring to teenagers’ bedrooms. In the dining halls, our

guides detailed complicated meal plans involving flex dollars, bonus bucks and recycling rewards, to buy foods described as glutenfree, Halal, locally-sourced, farm-to-table, mindful, kosher, Paleo, diabetic-sensitive and “world-fair” cuisine. I knew this was a fancy way of saying that for four years our kids will eat mostly cereal, chicken fingers and soft-serve ice cream. Like Odysseus resisting the call of the sirens, I did not fallen prey to the secret strategies employed by those institutions of higher learning. I kept my wits about me and was triumphantly on my way home after four long days. I had to admit however, that the use of chocolate chip cookies was an effective marketing tool. One school had them in baskets at admissions, another offered them hot out of the oven as we toured the dining halls and another doled them out at the conclusion of the tour. Add that to the free cookies in the hotel lobbies and, despite my Trojan warrior willpower, I was packing a baker’s dozen by the time we passed Poughkeepsie.

CNIC with Navy Wounded Warriors, Team U.S. at 2017 Invictus Games Story, photo by Kyle Malloy Navy Wounded Warrior-Safe Harbor Public Affairs

T

ORONTO (NNS) – Commander, Naval Installations Command (CNIC) Vice Adm. Mary Jackson attended the 2017 Invictus Games to show Team U.S. support and cheer on 17 Sailors competing at the international sporting event, Sept. 25 through 26. Team U.S. is a joint military crew and consists of athletes from each branch of service. During her visit, Jackson spent her time meeting with both athletes and their families while attending a variety of different competitions. “I think it is so powerful to see these athletes and what sport has given them,” said Jackson. “It’s not really about the competition, it’s about the camaraderie that you see among these teammates. It’s about how they work together and power through injuries and illnesses that most of us can’t even imagine.” CNIC FORCM Andrew Thompson accompanied Jackson on the trip, also demonstrating his support for Navy wounded warriors and Team U.S. at the Invictus Games. “The Invictus Games reminds our service members that they are still part of the team and they are still in the fight,” said Thomp-

son. “I think this helps encourage the athletes and demonstrates how life continues beyond their injury or illness.” Both Jackson and Thompson spoke about the impact families and loved ones have on the athletes, recognizing just how important their roles are to the recovery and rehabilitation of the service members. “Our family members are a critical link to the team,” said Jackson. “These family members are out here every day, helping get these athletes into the competitive environment and I can see how the impact of loved ones contributes to the resiliency of our wounded warriors.” Thompson agreed. “One of the biggest contributions to making these games happen is that of the family members and loved ones of these athletes,” said Thompson. “They’re the number one support of these athletes and ensuring they are taken care of is

letes’ support. “To both the athletes and family members, we are so proud, so humbled by what you are doing every day,” said Jackson. “I thank them because they represent a resiliency that we all aspire to have.” Being enrolled with Navy Wounded Warrior (NWW) provided the 17 Sailors the opportunity to compete with the United States at the Invictus Games.

DoD continues support in hurricane-ravaged areas DoD News, Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON – The Defense Department is continuing relief operations in areas of the Caribbean Sea stricken by hurricanes in recent weeks. In Puerto Rico, DoD continues ongoing relief operations and deployment of additional response capacity, expanding airfield and seaport throughput and supporting Federal Emergency Management Agency requirements, Army Lt. Col. Jamie Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement this morning. Army Lt. Gen. Jeffrey S. Buchanan, DoD’s liaison to the FEMA-led effort, and his deputy, Army Brig. Gen. Rich Kim, are in Puerto Rico and are coordinating with FEMA, the Puerto Rico National Guard, commonwealth leaders and other key response stakeholders, Davis said. The multipurpose amphibious assault ship USS Wasp is returning to support response operations in and around Puerto Rico, he added.

U.S. Northern Command will pair Wasp MH-60 helicopters with additional helicopters to bring the total of tilt- and rotary-wing aircraft supporting the response to 52 aircraft, he said. Hospital assessments continue – FEMA reports that assessments are complete at 62 of Puerto Rico’s 69 hospitals, Davis said. “One is fully operational, 55 are partially operational, five are closed and the status of eight is as yet unknown.” An assessment of the Schneider Regional Hospital on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands will be completed today to determine when patient services may resume, Davis said. Meanwhile, he added DoD is working to fulfill a FEMA request to establish a mobile medical facility on St. Croix. The hospital ship USNS Comfort departed its home port of Norfolk, Va., bound for Puerto Rico, and Northcom is sourcing a Role 3 medical capability and additional medical support, Davis said. The capability

includes a self-sufficient deployable medical/surgical treatment facility, including inpatient care with 50 inpatient beds for up to ten days, he explained. The Army Corps of Engineers has completed a damage assessment at Puerto Rico’s Guajataca Dam, Davis said, and are consulting on repairs. Ten of 12 regional staging areas, including 12 Puerto Rico National Guard armories, are open, he said, supporting more than 100 distribution points for meals, water and other commodities. Eight airports are open in Puerto Rico and one remains closed, he said. Five of six FEMA-priority sea ports are open or open with restrictions, he added, and surveys of Ponce and Roosevelt Roads are ongoing. U.S. Transportation Command lifted a replacement generator for San Juan Combined Center/Radar Approach. When installed, the generator will enhance air traffic control capability and increase air traffic capacity.

Jackson spoke about the importance of NWW and how its mission contributes to the Navy’s success. “We have lots of resources for our Sailors in the Navy and it’s important the fleet has awareness of Navy Wounded Warrior’s mission,” said Jackson. “There are local elements to Navy Wounded Warrior, which includes not only adaptive sports, but many other non-medical resources. If there is a Sailor who is eligible, we absolute want to get them enrolled.” Navy Wounded Warrior-Safe Harbor is the Navy’s sole organization for coordinating the nonmedical care of seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, and providing resources and support to their families. Through proactive leadership, the program provides individually-tailored assistance designed to optimize the success of the wounded warriors’ recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration activities.

AN DIEGO (NNS) – Navy Supply System Command (NAVSUP) Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) San Diego personnel assisted in the coordination and delivery of more than 50,000 pounds of humanitarian aid supplies as part of earthquake relief efforts for Mexico, Sept. 20. The White House ordered the urgent staging and delivery of the medical, water san-

itation and hygiene supplies following a 7.1 magnitude earthquake that rocked the

Mexican nation Sept. 19. More than 200 people have perished as a result of the quake to date. NAVSUP FLC San Diego executed the president’s request in collaboration with Project Handclasp and United States Northern Command, ensuring 48 pallets of disaster relief supplies were on the ground and in the hands of the Mexican people within hours. “Very quickly after receiving the call, we were able to get the humanitarian aid identified, sorted, packed, banded and transported to the flight line for delivery,” said Craig Horton, Integrated Lo-

gistics Support (ILS) department director. “To lend a hand in helping a nation in their time of need was an incredibly important priority for us.” Humanitarian assistance and international relief operations have long been a part of U.S. maritime force core capabilities. “The Navy isn’t just a fighting force; we are also ambassadors of goodwill between the United States and many other countries,” said Rich Monahan, ILS engineering division officer. “We are a team of Sailors and civil servants who care about our global neighbors.” The earthquake struck on the 32nd anniversary of a 1985 earthquake that killed thousands in central Mexico. According to Mexico’s national Civil Def e n s e a g e n c y, the sheer force of Tuesd a y ’s quake red u c e d buildings to rubble and left large swaths of central Mexico without power. “In times like these, it is imperative to have the right supplies and capabilities on site in very short order,” said NAVSUP FLC San Diego Commanding Officer Capt. Michelle Morse. “I believe we hit the mark and I believe I speak for everyone on this team when I say it was an

Christmas

Santa Rosa embraces NASWF – and has for 75 years By Jay Cope NASWF Public Affairs Office

I

t is said so often around Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) today that it is almost cliché. “In all my years in the military, I have never been stationed anywhere that supports their military as much as the people of Santa Rosa County do.” Commanding officers come and go. New relationships are forged and it would be understandable if the phrase were simply hyperbole meant to appease the prides of the various city and county officials, business leaders and influential residents. And yet, the repetitive theme from officer to officer, the simple ring of sincerity to the words and the frequent gratitude of the Sailors shown through community outreach strongly imply a more pure sentiment behind the catch-phrase: that the installation and surrounding community enjoy a steadfast bond with one another. That bond was forged during the fires of World War II and is one that has never broken and rarely, if ever, bent. The relationship started Feb. 11, 1943, even before the letter authorizing construction of the soon-to-be air station was signed. In nearly twoinch type with bold font, running the whole width of the page, The Milton Gazette proclaimed to Santa Rosa County that “Navy Auxiliary Air Base To Be Located Near Allentown.” In the midst of stories about enforcing curfew laws, local residents joining the military and war bond drives, the patriotic fervor of the Santa Rosa County populace could

donated for dances, Girl Scouts coordinated donations of magazines to be provided for service members’ enjoyment, cards and stationary were donated for writing letters, and various groups volunteered to arrange receptions and entertainment. By this time, NAAS Whiting Field was fully operational with both fields actively training pilots. Seven months after the first shovel of dirt had been moved, the installation was a fully-functioning facility dedicated to the creation of aviation warfighters for the nation’s defense, and the base personnel became fully-functioning members of the community. Sailors took an active role in war fund drives, headed the Armistice Day parade and when the first Christmas came to the base there were parties for the service members and the base children with homemade cakes and candy made by the residents for the parties. The sense of one community that is enjoyed today had its framework in that tumultuous first year. Local lawyer John T. Wigginton referred to NAAS Whiting Field as “our field” when he introduced Rear Adm. George Murray, the head of the training command in Pensacola, to the Kiwanians. Murray encouraged that concept. “We want you people to feel that way about it,” he said. “You may rest assured that we shall do our part in every possible way to keep our relations on a friendly and amicable basis, because it will take such pleasant relations to make a success of this part of our war effort.”

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month What you need to know: From Centers for Disease Control and Prevention www.cdc.gov

C

ancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms. A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Most women who are 50 to 74 years old should have a screening mammogram every two years. If you are 40 to 49 years old, or think you may have a higher risk of breast cancer, ask your doctor when to have a screening mammogram. Some things may increase your risk: If you have risk factors, you may be more likely to get breast cancer. Talk to your doctor about ways to lower your risk and about screening.

Reproductive risk factors: • Being younger when you had your first menstrual period • Never giving birth, or being older at the birth of your first child • Starting menopause at a later age • Using hormone replacement therapy for a long time Other risk factors: • Getting older • A personal history of breast cancer, dense breasts, or some other breast problems • A family history of breast cancer (parent, sibling, or child) • Changes in your breast cancer-related genes (BRCA1 or BRCA2) • Getting radiation therapy to the breast or chest • Being overweight, especially after menopause Symptoms:

Some warning signs of breast cancer are: • A lump or pain in the breast • Thickening or swelling of part of the breast • Irritation or dimpling of breast skin • Redness or flaky skin on the breast • Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area • Fluid other than breast milk from the nipple, especially blood • A change in the size or the shape of the breast Other conditions can cause these symptoms. If you have any signs that worry you, call your doctor right away. If you think you are at higher risk, talk to your doctor. Your doctor may refer you to a genetic counselor, recommend that you get screened earlier and more frequently

and consider medicines or surgeries that can lower your risk. You have an average risk of getting breast cancer at a young age if the risk factors listed don’t apply to you. If you are at average risk, it is important for you to know how your breasts normally look and feel. Talk to your doctor if you notice any changes in your breasts. Aside from genetics, little is known about what causes breast cancer in women younger than 45 years of age. What can I do to reduce my risk of breast cancer? Many factors can influence your breast cancer risk and most women who develop breast cancer do not have any known risk factors or a

history of the disease in their families. However, you can help lower your risk of breast cancer in the following ways: • Keep a healthy weight • Exercise regularly (at least four hours a week) • Do not drink alcohol, or limit alcoholic drinks to no more than one per day • Avoid exposure to chemicals that can cause cancer (carcinogens) • Try to reduce your exposure to radiation during medical tests like mammograms, X-rays, CT scans and PET scans • If you are taking or have been told to take hormone replacement therapy or oral contraceptives (birth control pills), ask your doctor about the risks and find out if it is

right for you • Breastfeed your babies, if possible Can not afford a mammogram? If you have a low income or do not have insurance and are between the ages of 40 and 64, you may qualify for a free or low-cost mammogram through CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program.

NMOTC winds down Suicide Prevention Month Story by PO2 Matthew Clutter Navy Medicine Operational Training Center

S

ailors across the Navy have spent September bringing awareness to suicide during Suicide Prevention Month. The fight does not stop as the month ends, though. At Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC), combating suicide and helping to prevent it is a 24-hour-a-day, all-hands mission. “When dealing with suicide, one is too many,” said HMC Arnel Calubaquib, NMOTC suicide prevention coordinator. “A death or any suicide-related behavior affects us all – in

morale, readiness, mission focus, good order and discipline.” Sailors at NMOTC practice this prevention by training and holding regular discussions.

Calubaquib says having engaged leadership and training on all levels in addition to keeping the conversation going is what makes the difference. “Conducting annual training requirements and exchanging and practicing lessons learned and best practices definitely helps,” he said. Since the Navy launched its “Every Sailor, Every Day” campaign in 2014, there has been an outstanding response across the fleet, according to the Navy’s Suicide Prevention Branch. “Every Sailor, Every Day” serves as the Navy’s core suicide prevention and operational stress control campaign. In September of 2015, the

“Younger, Louder” service at the chapel ... Lt. Chris Terrell, a chaplain onboard NAS Pensacola, talks with Sailors, Marines and Airmen during a recent service in the All Faiths Chapel onboard the station. The contemporary service is held each Sunday evening at 6 p.m. and is called “1800 - Younger, Louder, Later.” The service features music performed by students from the various military training commands on base, as well as prayers, scripture readings and a message from Terrell.

Navy added a new message, “1 Small ACT.” This message encourages simple actions that can make a difference in the lives of others while leveraging relationships between peers and community members. It is based on the Navy’s Ask Care Treat (ACT) model. For more information on how to get involved or integrate training principles to Sailors, visit www. public. navy. mil/ bupers-npc/ support/21st_Century_Sailor/ suicide_prevention/ spmonth/ Pages/ Get-Involved. aspx. If a person is thinking of suicide, he or she can call the Military Crisis Line any time day or night at (800) 273-8255 and

press 1. He or she can also text 838255 or visit www. military crisisline.net. If a Sailor knows or hears of someone who is thinking or talking about suicide, he or she can visit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention website at https://afsp.org/crisis-negotiation-talk-someone-youre-worried/ for more information on how to talk to someone who is considering suicide. NMOTC is a global health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide high-quality health care to more than one million eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ships, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

The 58th annual Pensacola Greek Festival will take place on Oct. 13 through 15 at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, located at 1720 West Garden Street. This three-day event draws upwards of 30,000 people from across the Southeast. Festival hours are 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Oct. 13 and 14 and from noon to 5:30 p.m. Oct. 15. Admission is always free. The Pensacola Greek Festival is a staple of the Pensacola Bay area’s fall festival lineup, mixing southern hospitality with Hellenic culture and cuisine. This year, the Pensacola Greek Festival will be celebrating the island of Samos, which many of the local parishioners call home. Samos is a beach island with a rich history of being home to many philosophers and mathematicians. The Pensacola Greek Festival is a wonderful opportunity for the Greek community to share their culture, traditions, heritage, faith, food, dance and the fun-loving spirit of Greece. Live Greek music and traditional folk dancing will be among the entertainment highlights of the weekend. Youth dancers dressed in traditional costumes representing various regions of Greece will perform dance sets throughout the weekend and the dance floor is open to all between youth sets. The popular Kostas Kastanis band will be back again to play traditional and modern Greek music throughout the weekend. On the dining menu, there will be traditional roast lamb,

The 58th annual Greek Festival promises celebration, food and fun at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.

lamb shanks, baked chicken, dolmathes, moussaka, pastitsio, spanakopita, tiropita and Greek salads. All of these dinner items will be served inside the hall. Once again, Greek desserts will only be sold outside under the main tent. The outdoor taverna (between the church and the hall) will feature the popular gyros, souvlakia (kabobs) and sausage wraps as well as chicken tenders for the children, Greek fries cooked in olive oil and, of course, calamari. Many of these specialty food items are prepared by the parishioners and by some of the popular Gulf Coast restaurants owned by church members. Many of the favorite recipes will be published on the church website, in the weekly e-mail bulletins, on Facebook and in the printed festival program. In between dining and dancing, guests are encouraged to attend a 20-minute church tour to

learn about the architecture, design and beauty of a traditional Orthodox Christian church. Members of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church choir will sing Byzantine hymns at the conclusion of each tour. Volunteers are always needed to help with food preparations, setup on the weekends prior to the festival and throughout the festival weekend. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up to receive e-mail updates about festival news by subscribing to the festival e-mail list on the festival website. Tickets, cash and checks are accepted at all cash registers. Tickets cannot be purchased by credit card, however there will be plenty of ATM machines available onsite.
