Congressman visits NASP training commands By Lt. Jonathan Bacon Naval Air Technical Training Center and Naval Education and Training Public Affairs
U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne toured Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) and the Center for Information Dominance (CID) during a visit to NAS Pensacola Oct. 2. Byrne, a congressman representing Alabama’s 1st Congressional District, and a member of the House Committee on Armed Services, was visiting area commands to become familiar with program, personnel and readiness issues. At NATTC, Byrne had the opportunity to observe a wide range of aviation maintenance training including labs where electronics theory for avionics is taught, as well as labs for ground support equipment, aviation ordnance, jet engine maintenance, aircraft structural repair metalworking and computer labs where students worked on a simulated aircraft in a virtual training environment. As he toured NATTC and interacted with the staff and students, Byrne told them, “thank you for what you do for your country, I appreciate it.”

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Energy Action Month is here and Navy Installations Command (NIC) is committed to doing its part. With more than 80,000 facilities and nearly 2 million acres of land to support the fleet, fighter and family, shore installations play a vital role in energy conservation. Sailors and civilians worldwide are helping make Navy facilities and infrastructure more efficient by working together to improve efficiency in shore energy consumption, and
increasing the use of alternative and renewable energy across the enterprise. Energy is a strategic resource and to best meet the NIC mission, leadership and staffs are reaffirming their commitment to continued awareness in conserving energy and operating more efficiently. “It is the right thing to do,” said Cmdr. Jay Cavnar, NIC’s energy branch head. “Every kilowatthour, BTU or gallon of fuel that we can avoid using – while still meeting our full mission – allows us to stretch limited resources for

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.
The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. 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,
to do, whether it is to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, or update his or her voter information. “The Federal Voting Assistance Program website guides you through completing a Federal Postcard Application – that’s your formal registration and a request for an absentee ballot,” said Abraham. If Sailors have already requested their state ballot but haven’t received it, now is the time to use the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB) as a back-up. The online assistant at FVAP.gov will pre-populate the FWAB with candidate lists, depending on the congressional district. If Sailors receive their state ballot after submitting the FWAB, individuals should vote and return the state ballot regardless.

It’s true that a mother’s work is never really done By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
I remember it like it was yesterday. The shriek of my alarm going off at 6:15 a.m. like the start of some second-rate dog race. With a rat’s nest of hair and the same yoga pants I’d worn the day before, I was off and running: making beds, toasting waffles, packing lunches, dropping off, sorting laundry, picking up, flipping nuggets, filling tubs, reading stories, tucking in. Other than 20 minutes spent wolfing down a turkey on wheat for lunch at our kitchen island between wash cycles, the closest thing I had to “free time” was falling asleep on the couch while clipping peanut butter coupons in front of the television after the children went to bed. And when my Navy husband was deployed, my daily routine was a total blur, teetering somewhere between precarious sanity and certifiable madness. Thank the good Lord those days are over. After a couple of decades spent fulfilling the needs of our three children, I’m finally free. With our oldest now off at college, our two girls in high school and my husband on shore duty,

However, when school started this year, I didn’t want to
traumatize our girls by drastically changing their routine. I thought it best to wean them gently, so I got up early each morning as usual, offering to scramble eggs, find soccer socks, slice oranges. But turns out, they can do it all by themselves. What a relief. On our morning ride to school in the minivan, I used to talk my children through the day’s schedule, making sure they were organized and ready for any quizzes or tests. But the girls let me know the first week of school that, instead of talking to me, they prefer to motivate themselves on our morning drive by having a “girl dance
party,” which entails turning the minivan volume up to level nine and flailing their arms to the beat. And my 16-year-old is quick to remind me that, in a few short months, they won’t even need me to drive them to school because she will have her driver’s license. What a welcome change that will be. Back at home, I breathe a huge sigh of relief that there’s no one depending on me for the next 10 hours. I look around our empty house, ecstatic that I have the whole day to myself to finally do all the things I could never do before – go on a shopping spree, start a new career, take tennis lessons, meet friends
for lunch, train for a marathon. But, of course, I wouldn’t want to jump into my newfound freedom too quickly. Instead, I check to see if there’s any laundry to be done, then remember that I did it all yesterday. I peek at the computer every 10 minutes to see if any pressing emails have come in. I wander the house looking for dust bunnies. Eventually, I microwave the cup of lukewarm coffee I inadvertently left in the pantry, and plunk down at the kitchen table. Now what? Just then, I hear a thunk in the bedroom upstairs. Stirring from his morning nap, our 8-year-old labradoodle, Dinghy, comes down the back staircase of our old base house, his toenails clopping on the wood flooring. With a boney clunk, he sits in front of me, lifts a lanky paw, and scrapes it over my thigh. Terrific. Just when I was about to savor the sweet solitude of freedom, it dawns on me. I’m not free just yet – I’m still key and essential to this household. With renewed purpose, I get out my To Do list and scribble, 1. Walk dog, 2. Feed dog, 3. Teach old dog new tricks, 4.

Fire prevention’s lessons come at a high cost Commentary by Craig Lewis Fire Prevention Chief Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast
realize statistics might seem boring but unfortunately they are true – take a few minutes and review the information in this article and consider what you can do to make a difference in how you look at fire safety and smoke detectors. This information is from the National Fire Protection Association’s website (http:// www.nfpa. org) and for more fire safety information visit http://www. nfpa. org/safety-information. Home fires • In 2011, U.S. fire departments responded to 370,000 home structure fires. These fires caused 13,910 civilian injuries, 2,520 civilian deaths, and $ 6.9 billion in direct damage. • On average, seven people died in U.S. home fires per day from 2007 to 2011. • Cooking is the leading cause
NFPA launches interactive fire prevention quiz From www.nfpa.org
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is offering an online, interactive quiz for members of the public looking to test their fire safety smarts. The quiz reinforces the messages behind NFPA’s annual awareness campaign, Fire Prevention Week (http://www. fpw.org), and its 2014 theme, “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month.” The 2014 Fire Prevention Week Quiz is available online through Oct. 25 at www.nfpa. org/ fpwquiz, and includes 12 questions on smoke alarm safety and information. This interactive resource lets families see how well-prepared they are for an emergency. Quiz-takers can review their results and compare them with others via Twitter and Facebook. This year, Fire Prevention Week informs the public about the importance of testing their smoke alarms every month. Test your knowledge today at www.nfpa.org/fpwquiz.
home fires and home fire injuries, followed heating equipment. • Smoking is a leading cause of civilian home fire deaths. • Most fatal fires kill one or two people. In 2012, eight home fires killed five or more people resulting in a total of 44 deaths. Smoke alarms • Almost three of five (60 percent) of reported home fire deaths in 2007 to 2011 resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. • Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported

home fires in half. • In fires considered large enough to activate the smoke alarm, hardwired alarms operated 93 percent of the time, while battery powered alarms operated only 79 percent of the time. • When smoke alarms fail to operate, it is usually because batteries are missing, disconnected, or dead. • An ionization smoke alarm is generally more responsive to flaming fires and a photoelectric smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, or where extra time is needed, to awaken or assist others, both types of alarms, or combination ioniza-
tion and photoelectric alarms are recommended. Escape planning • According to an NFPA survey, only one-third of Americans have both developed and practiced a home fire escape plan. • Almost three-quarters of Americans do have an escape plan; however, more than half never practiced it. • One-third (32 percent) of respondents who made an estimate thought they would have at least six minutes before a fire in their home would become life threatening. The time available is often less. Only 8 percent said their first thought on hearing a smoke alarm would be to get out.
Candles • During 2007-2011 candles caused 3 percent of home fires, 4 percent of home fire deaths, 7 percent of home fire injuries and 6 percent of direct property damage from home fires. • On average, there are 32 home candle fires reported per day. • More than one-third of these fires (36 percent) started in the bedroom; however, the candle industry found that only 13 percent of candle users burn candles in the bedroom most often. • Nearly three in five candle fires (56 percent) start when things that can burn are too close to the candle.
More than Mrs. O’Leary’s cow: history of Fire Prevention Week From www.nfpa.org
Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 conflagration that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres. The fire began Oct. 8, but continued into and did most of its damage Oct. 9, 1871. Commemorating a conflagration According to popular legend, the fire broke out after a cow – belonging to Mrs. Catherine O’Leary – kicked over a lamp, setting first the barn, then the whole city on fire. Chances are you’ve heard some version of this story yourself; people have been blaming the Great Chicago Fire on the cow and Mrs. O’Leary, for more than 130 years. But recent research by Chicago historian Robert Cromie has helped to debunk this version of events. The “moo” myth Like any good story, the “case of the cow” has some truth to it. The great fire almost certainly started near the barn where Mrs. O’Leary kept her five milking cows. But there is no proof that O’Leary was in the barn when the fire broke out – or that a jumpy cow sparked the blaze. Mrs. O’Leary herself swore that she’d been in bed early that night, and that the cows were also tucked in for the evening. But if a cow wasn’t to blame for the huge fire, what was? Over the years, journalists and historians have offered plenty of theories. Some blamed the blaze on a couple of neighborhood boys who were near the barn sneaking cigarettes. Others believed that a neighbor of the O’Leary’s may have started the fire. Some people have speculated that a fiery me-

teorite may have fallen to earth on Oct. 8, starting several fires that day – in Michigan and Wisconsin, as well as in Chicago. The biggest blaze that week While the Great Chicago Fire was the bestknown blaze to start during this fiery two-day stretch, it wasn’t the biggest. That distinction goes to the Peshtigo Fire, the most devastating forest fire in American history. The fire, which also occurred Oct. 8, 1871, and roared through Northeast Wisconsin, burning down 16 towns, killing 1,152 people and scorching 1.2 million acres before it ended. Historical accounts of the fire say that the blaze began when several railroad workers clearing land for tracks unintentionally started a brush fire. Before long, the fast-moving flames were whipping through the area “like a tornado,” some survivors said. It was the small town of Peshtigo, Wisc. that suffered the worst damage. Within an hour, the entire town had been destroyed.
Nine decades of fire prevention Those who survived the Chicago and Peshtigo fires never forgot what they’d been through; both blazes produced countless tales of bravery and heroism. But the fires also changed the way that firefighters and public officials thought about fire safety. On the 40th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire, the Fire Marshals Association of North America (today known as the International Fire Marshals Association), decided that the anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire should henceforth be observed not with festivities, but in a way that would keep the public informed about the importance of fire prevention. The commemoration grew incrementally official over the years. In 1920, President Woodrow Wilson issued the first National Fire Prevention Day proclamation, and since 1922, Fire Prevention Week has been observed on the Sunday through Saturday period in which Oct. 9 falls.

Historic link surfaces for retiring museum director From www.navalaviationmuseum.org
n Sept. 29, Capt. Robert L. Rasmussen retired as director of the National Naval Aviation Museum, a position he has held for almost three decades. He is the longest serving director in the museum’s 51year history and there is not much about naval aviation that has escaped his attention during that time. Yet, just recently the previously hidden history of a fixture at the entrance to NAS Pensacola, revealed a surprising twist for him. The F-11 Tiger that from 1965 to 2014 was a fixture at the front gate of NAS Pensacola. In 1965, NAS Pensacola personnel placed an F-11 Tiger near the front gate. Initially displayed in the light gull gray-and-white paint scheme of fleet aircraft, the airplane subsequently received a makeover to honor the air station’s most visible tenant command, the Navy’s famed Blue Angels flight demonstration team, which flew the F-11 during the period of 1957 to 1968. For years, that is how it appeared to personnel and visitors entering the air station. Earlier this year, as part of NAS Pensacola’s year long commemoration of its centennial, an F/A-18 Hornet, the current airplane flown by the Blue Angels, replaced the F-
11, which as part of the museum’s inventory of historic aircraft, was made available for loan to another entity since the museum already displays an example of the airplane. Accordingly, it made its way to Discovery Park of America in Union City, Tenn. There, while preparing it for display, personnel opened up the cockpit and found the data plate identifying the bureau number of the airplane –141869. Up until that time, no NASP or museum officials had known this information. The bureau number had not been painted on the airplane and there had never been a requirement to access the cockpit. “There was just something about it that sounded familiar,” Rasmussen recalled of hearing the bureau number. Digging out his aviator’s flight log books, which listed every flight he made during his three decades of service as a naval aviator, he soon found out why. In November 1958, while a lieutenant assigned to the Blue Angels, he had first flown the airplane at the Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant on Long Island, a location where the Navy and

It was the first of exactly 300 flights he would make in the airplane over the course of the ensuing fourteen months, many of them in flight demonstrations around the country as the slot pilot in the Blue Angels’ diamond formation, the airplane (then designated an F11F-1) emblazoned with the number “4” on its vertical stabilizer.

a fleet squadron, whether serving ashore or afloat, naval aviators generally do not fly the same airplane from one day to the next. However, that is not the case in the Blue Angels, and Rasmussen likely flew this airplane more than any other in his flying career. Fittingly the news came on the eve of his retirement, a link to his time in uniform emerging at the conclusion of years spent preserving naval aviation’s heritage.
Retired Navy Capt. Robert L. Rasmussen became the director of the National Naval Aviation Museum in 1987. He is also an accomplished painter and sculptor. A native of Rio Vista, Calif., Rasmussen entered the Navy through the aviation cadet program in 1950. After receiving his wings, he was assigned to VF-51 at Miramar, Calif., deploying aboard USS Philippine Sea (CV 47). He was a Blue Angels pilot from 1956 to 1960. In 1962, he joined VF 33 aboard USS Intrepid (CVA 11) and became aide to Deputy Commander In Chief, Atlantic Fleet. Following postgraduate school, Rasmussen was executive officer and then commanding officer of VF- 111, operating aboard USS Oriskany (CVA 34) during the Vietnam War. In 1968, he became head of Junior Officer Distribution at the Bureau of Personnel. Rasmussen returned to the Vietnam theater in 1971, first as chief of staff, Carrier Division 7, and then as commanding officer of USS Mount Hood (AE 29). In 1974, he became commanding officer of NS Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico. He became director of Aviation Officer Distribution in Washington, D.C., in 1976, and his last assignment before retirement was as commanding officer of Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC) at NAS Pensacola.

NASWF Civilians of the Quarter By Ens. Kim Mahoney NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
aval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) has named their top civilians for the third quarter 2014. Ken Cube earned the Senior Civilian of the Quarter (SCoQ) honors and Sandra Burnett received Junior Civilian of the Quarter (JCoQ) recognition. The awardees have exemplified productivity and creativity in the workplace. Workers are nominated by their supervisors and compete against other nominees in other departments on base. This award is a way for the Navy to recognize the hard work that civilians put into helping operations run smoothly. Cube has served as the safety and occupational health specialist in the NASWF Safety Department since May 2014. He made crucial preparations for the command’s Regional Operational Assessment and Assistance Program (ROAAP) inspection, which led the command to become only the second to pass all 34 areas of the inspection. Cube was also commended for his knowledge of
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules and regulations. He demonstrated initiative and subject matter expertise by creating the instructor and student guides for an OSHA 10hour general industry two day course. CNRSE specifically requested that Cube instruct an OSHA 30-hour general industry five-day class at the headquarters for 24 personnel, providing an invaluable service and cost savings to CNRSE personnel. His knowledge and expertise are widely recognized both on and off base. “He’s a terrific employee. He does everything you could ever ask of him without even having to be told, it does not get much better than that,” said retired Lt. Cmdr. Richard Ballinger, Naval
Air Station Whiting Field safety officer and Cube’s supervisor. “He is a selfstarter ... He is congenial and well liked on base.” Burnett works for the Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) as a family readiness program assistant. She was the primary contact for coordination of the NASWF Job Fair and prepared correspondence by making phone calls to 200plus employers to identify needs or verify attendance. She drafted programs and prepared staff work schedules and floor layout schematics in addition to sustaining superior customer service. She volunteered to recruit and give in depth training to volunteers who worked in her
office. Burnett works behind the scenes for the numerous projects she contributes to, and is considered essential to the success of those programs. Burnett continuously provides recommendations and evaluations to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and productivity of FFSC. “She is the core of the operations of the FFSC ... (she has the) knowledge, wisdom and ability to ensure that all the components of FFSC have all the things they need to complete the tasks,” said Daryl Johnson, a work and family life consultant at the FFSC. The award winners both exemplify ambitious work ethics and the ability to take the initiative in any task. “We are privileged to have such a capable civilian workforce at NAS Whiting Field,” said Cmdr. Greggory Gray, NASWF executive officer. “All of these men and women make such noteworthy contributions to the success of this installation each and every day that it is often challenging to highlight the most significant achievements of a particular period. However, Ken Cube and Sandra Burnett have performed above and beyond the high standard of excellence that we have come to expect and are extremely worthy of recognition as the NASWF Senior and Junior Civilians of the third quarter.”
New CPOs pinned in Sept. 16 ceremony at NASWF Story, photo by 1st Lt. Nathan A. Boyar NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
The newest chief petty officers (CPOs) of NAS Whiting Field were pinned Sept. 16. The ceremony, which honored YNC Gina Green, ACC Jean Vincent, MAC Colt Ward, and MAC Michael Wiederhoeft, was held at the atrium at NAS Whiting Field. Each of these newly pinned chiefs were selected for the months of preparation leading up to their pinning because of their subject matter experts as first class petty officers. Now they will be taking up new challenges that continue their subject matter expertise and increases their leadership amongst their commands. “Ask the chief” is a staple of Navy terminology for enlisted and officers alike. Col-
ACC Vincent, YNC Green, MAC Wiederhoeft and MAC Ward (from left to right) sing “Anchors Aweigh” at their CPO pinning ceremony at NAS Whiting Field.
lectively, the newly pinned chiefs of NAS Whiting Field have 59 years of experience in the Navy. Green is from Panama City and enlisted in 1989. Her first duty station was San Diego, Calif. After spending 12 years
out, she re-enlisted in 2006. She is assigned to Naval Reserve Navy Security Force, NASWF. Green serves as the senior enlisted leader for her unit. Vincent is a 14-year veteran who started his career in Mayport; his hometown is Coral
Springs. Vincent currently works as facility watch supervisor for North Whiting Tower and will soon be South Whiting Tower branch chief. Ward’s first duty station was Souda Bay, Greece. He enlisted in 2002. Ward is the physical security officer for NASWF, where he implements the command’s security plan and sustains the anti-terrorism force protection of the installation. Ward grew up in Owensboro, Ky. Wiederhoeft is the weapons officer for NASWF. He manages security of weapons and ammunition for the base and additionally runs the 3M program (materials maintenance management). Wiederhoeft hails from Merrill, Wis. After enlisting in 2002 his first duty station was in London, England. The guest speaker at the pin-
ning ceremony was NASWF Commanding Officer, Capt. Matthew Coughlin. Coughlin spoke about his experiences as the son of a second class petty officer who had a deep respect for his command’s chief, specifically Chief Kowalski. As his father told sea stories, he would always come back to the lessons learned from his chief. “Never underestimate the influence you have, because that chief had an influence on me and I had never worn the uniform yet,” he said. The ceremony opened an uplifting singing of “Anchors Aweigh” by the new chief petty officers. The ceremony finished with each new CPO joining the ranks of the attending chiefs. “Today is about you,” Couglin noted. “Tomorrow is about everything but you.”

Housing Allowance 2. Sea or Flight Pay 3. Retirement Pay 4. Social Security 5. V.A. Benefits (Yes, despite what others have told you, VA pay is included in child support calculations. Some of you will argue this point. Make an appointment and I will show you why it is included).

A major problem which can affect both the payor and recipient of child support is when the support should begin. If you are involved in the initial Divorce proceeding the payor’s obligation begins, at the minimum, when the divorce is filed and/or you no longer live together with the child/children. The separation date may predate the filing of the divorce petition. You need an attorney’s advice to ascertain your obligation. If you wait until the final hearing, you may have to pay ongoing child support plus a court ordered amount each month to satisfy an arrearage plus interest. If you are active duty military, the JAG manual (navy page) will specify what you must pay to continue to support your family until further court order. A temporary hearing could reduce the amount of child support that you have been direct to may pay military orders or rules. If you are the spouse of an active duty military member, reservist or retiree, see Spouse/Military or
call for an appointment regarding the questions you may have. Retirement Alimony/Spousal Support In Florida, military retirement funds are an asset which is treated differently than other income related to Alimony/Spousal Support. The spouse of retired military personnel receives a pro rata share of the retirement funds. If the spouse remarries, the awarded share is still paid. If the military retiree dies, and an SBP is elected, it is still paid. You must make sure your lawyer uses the correct formula in order to establish the amount owed. DFAS has particular guidelines that must be met in order to accomplish the correct payment of spousal support.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month Story, photo by MC1 James Stenberg Assistant public affairs officer, Naval Hospital Pensacola
ctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) is educating its beneficiaries about the dangers of breast cancer and the importance of getting checked. Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the United States. About one in eight women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime. “The two greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being a woman and getting older,” said Michelle Wilkes, breast health specialist at NHP. “Early detection with a breast self-exam, clinical breast exam and mammography is the best
defense against this disease.” A mammogram can often detect breast cancer long before it can be felt and usually years before physical symptoms appear. The earlier cancer is detected, the less invasive and more successful treatment can be. The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that in 2014, more than 232,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Men are also susceptible to breast cancer and the ACS predicts that more
than 2,000 men will be diagnosed this year. “Since breast cancer is so rare in men, no routine screening is recommended,” said HM2 Brett Strach, nuclear medicine technologist, NHP. “However, if a man notices a lump or a change in the breast, he needs to be evaluated by a physician.” Being diagnosed with breast cancer can produce a cornucopia of emotional and medical concerns. Thankfully, NHP has had a certified breast patient naviga-
t o r available for the last 16 years to assist with the treatment and recovery process. To help promote breast cancer awareness, the hospital will be hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness Expo every Friday during the month of October. The expo will educate beneficiaries on the dangers of breast cancer and the importance of knowing how to perform a self-exam. There will also be pamphlets, self-exam cards and tables with interactive displays so that beneficiaries can actually see what a lump
would feel like. “I encourage all women to take charge of their health care and receive these lifesaving exams,” said Wilkes. “Do it for yourself and for the ones you love. Put your breasts to the test and let’s give (breast) cancer the shove.” The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women over the age of 40. Beneficiaries enrolled at NHP can call their Medical Home Port Team through central appointments at 505-7170 to schedule a mammogram.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Expo • NHP’s Radiology Department will be hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness Month Expo every Friday in October. The expo will be in the NHP courtyard from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Stop by and learn more about breast cancer; food will be available for purchase.
Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. All women are at risk for breast cancer. Not counting skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women of all major racial and ethnic groups in the United States. Among Hispanic women, it is the most common cause of death from cancer, and it is the second most common cause of death from cancer among white, black, Asian or Pacific Islander and American Indian or Alaska Native women. Although more white women get breast cancer, more black women die from it. How can I prevent it? Scientists are studying how best to prevent breast cancer. Ways to help lower your risk of getting breast cancer include: • Stay physically active by getting regular exercise. • Maintain a healthy weight. • Avoid using hormone replacement therapy (HRT), or find out the risks and benefits of HRT and if it is right for you. • Limit the amount of alcohol that you drink.

CFC mobile van visits NETPDTC By Katrina Gergely NETPDTC PAO
The Naval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center (NETPDTC) kicked off its Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) with a visit from the touring CFC Mobile Pledging Van and a tailgate party hosted by NETPDTC’s Welfare & Recreation Committee Sept. 19. More than 100 civilians and military members attended the kick-off event supporting this year’s CFC theme “Helping Hands, Giving Heart.” The event was organized by Chrissy Wagner, CFC activity chairperson, departmental CFC keypeople and the NETPDTC Welfare and Recreation Committee members. “The Combined Federal Campaign is the mechanism through which I can help others and know that the agency is
valid and has been meticulously screened,” said Rich Andres, CFC keyperson. “We should be thankful that we can give a little of our good fortune to someone who is severely struggling without impacting our daily comforts. We give because we can.” The CFC pledging van, manned by local CFC Director Ron Denson and assistants, is on its annual awareness tour providing information and answering queries on the various non-profit organizations. The van also offers guidance for registering online using the van’s latest feature, mobile laptops. “I especially like to give to local charities because I know those funds stay in the community. They might even help my relatives, friends or neighbors when hurricanes and flooding hit our area,” said Donna Berkley, attendee and long term donor to CFC. The Office of Personnel

Management (OPM), which provides oversight to local CFC campaigns, recognized the Escambia Santa Rosa CFC with top honors and the 2013 Innovation Award, for its creative and innovative strategy in increasing program awareness by developing and implementing
the Mobile CFC Awareness Tour. “There are so many sources of gratification I’ve found working as the CFC activity chairperson. One of them is having the privilege of actively contributing to the 40,870 individuals in need that were fed in Escambia and
Santa Rosa counties and knowing that I helped make that possible,” said Wagner. Some of the new features available this year online are the ability to donate directly through MyPay or a credit/debit card of choice for a one time donation. You can also donate to other local charities worldwide outside of the Pensacola area through the Universal Giving option. A charity list can be obtained by visiting the EscaRosa CFC site or by contacting an activity representative. CFC has vetted a listing of more than 34,000 international, national and local charities that maintain required accountability standards.
