NAS Jacksonville family unites with NASP family in hurricane evacuation By PO1 Stacy D. Laseter Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs

Hurricane Matthew churned up the eastern seaboard of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, impacting several Navy installations, including Naval Air Station Jacksonville. When the word was passed to evacuate certain parts of Jacksonville, thousands of families in the area heeded the advice and made their way out of the evacuation zones. One of those families had an old shipmate to rely on. PO1 Kenneth Peneueta, assigned to Patrol Squadron (VP) 8, and his wife, Sonja, and their children were among those evacuees. They were lucky to know someone on NAS Pensacola who would be willing to house them during the storm. The Peneutas have known CPO Adam Stewart and his wife for five years from when they were stationed together at Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay,

Hawaii, at VP-47. Stewart and his wife, Elise, were transferred to the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training on NAS Pensacola two years ago. When Sonja Peneueta called Stewart, she was relieved when he said he would take in the family of four. “I knew the evacuees from Guantanamo Bay were at Pensacola, so that put a strain on the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites,” said Sonja Peneueta. “Had the roles been reversed, I would do the exact same for them. I am so thankful.” The Peneuetas said this is their first time evacuating from a hurricane as a family and they weren’t really sure what to expect. But with newscasts talking about the potential loss of power and catastrophic winds, they knew they had to get out of town. “It was kind of frenzied, because we weren’t expecting to evacuate at first,” said PO1 Peneueta. “We had supplies

Damage to the base was minimal. The airlift was arranged through U.S. Transportation Command for all evacuees to return to NSGB from Pensacola. Photo by Janet Thomas

Navy COOL unveils new credentialing program for DoN civilians By PO3 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

Department of the Navy (DoN) Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL) launched a new website aimed at providing certification opportunities for DoN civilian em-

ployees, Oct. 3. Just like Navy COOL for Sailors, DoN Civilian COOL is a resource tool, mapping certifications and licensure based on formal training and on-the-job experience. The DON COOL website portal at http://www. cool.navy.mil/ now has a site specifically for civilians that is

searchable by federal occupation code or title. “Our intention, since Navy COOL’s inception, has always been to eventually include DoN civilians,” said Michael Talley, the assistant program director for Navy COOL. Navy COOL has helped more than 52,000 Sailors obtain

civilian credentialing, which can contribute to career development while on active duty and when a Sailor joins the civilian workforce, possibly even as a federal employee. DoN Civilian COOL was developed in partnership with U.S. Fleet Forces Command and is the first of its kind for

DoD civilians. The initial group of 37 federal civilian occupations includes fields such as information technology, human resources, administrative, financial, engineering, education, legal, supply and security See COOL on page 2

It even afforded them time to catch up with their old friends. “It was a good distraction from the hurricane to be able to spend time with friends,” said Sonja Peneueta. “We cooked dinner for them on the first night to thank them.” During the times that Stewart and his wife are working, the Peneuetas have taken their 2-yearold daughter, Leiana, and their 9-month-old son, Kanoa, around the Pensacola area. “We were able to see the National Naval Aviation Museum, which we had both been to before, but it is so much more awesome now with kids,” said Sonja Peneueta. “My daughter was in heaven.” They say that they are still unsure when they are heading back to Jacksonville, and are not sure what’s in store for them once they return. “There may be damage to our home or our other vehicle. There may be debris in the streets on the way. We are just on standby right now, waiting to get the all-clear,” said Sonja Peneueta. The Peneuetas have been able to stay abreast of the weather situation because of Navy Facebook pages and local Jacksonville news outlets. PO1 Peneueta also said he checks in with his command daily. “I’ve been doing a phone muster to my command every day,” he said. “I’ve also had contact with some of my junior Sailors to make sure they and their families are OK and don’t need anything. So far, so good.”

Statistics give us some very good reasons to check those detectors: According to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), three of every five home fire deaths occurred in homes with no smoke alarms or where the alarms did not work. Dead batteries were the cause of almost 25 percent of malfunctions. These are grave statistics when you think about it. Fifty-nine percent of the deaths in home fires occurred without a simple device that warns you; a simple device that only asks you check it periodically and change it when needed.

Now, for that expiration date – it’s as easy as removing the detector from its wall or ceiling plate and looking on the back side. There you will find a date of manufacture or a date of expiration (depending on how the manufacturer lists it.) If it’s an expiration date, then go by it, but if it’s a manufacture date, you’ll need to add 10 years. When making the decision to replace your detectors, it’s always a good idea to change them all at once and ensure you get the same compatible type for your home.

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.

Energy Action Month reinforces Navy’s energy resiliency From Chief of Naval Operations Energy and Environmental Readiness Division

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – Through a presidential proclamation, October has been designated as Energy Action Month to stress the importance of energy for our nation’s economic vitality today and for a sustainable future. The Department of Navy’s Energy Action Month theme for 2016 is “Power. Presence.” This theme illustrates the strong connection between the Navy and Marine Corps’ wise use of energy and our ability to be when and where we’re needed for national security and humanitarian assistance missions worldwide. In honor of Energy Action Month, naval commands and organizations are demonstrating their commitment to energy resiliency by reducing energy consumption and promoting awareness of energy as an enabler of combat capability.

How to submit a commentary

In October, Navy observes National Cybersecurity Awareness Month From Navy Office of Information

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – October marks the annual cybersecurity education and awareness campaign. As Navy systems and functions become increasingly reliant on cyberspace, adhering to best cyber practices and behaving with integrity online are critical to protecting Navy networks. The cyber threat is real. Between September 2014 and June 2015, there were 30 million known malicious intrusion attempts on Department of Defense networks. Both civilian and military computer systems are under constant attack from a variety of sources. Adversaries use hacking, espionage, malware, viruses and worms to obtain personal information through e-mails, software downloads and social websites. Whether at work or at home, Navy personnel must remember that they are in the battlespace and are the first line of defense. “What we all have to remember is that every Sailor is cyber warrior,” said Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. John Richardson. “Just like every Sailor is a fire fighter, every Sailor is a cyber warrior ... It just takes one person to make a mistake; that mistake can be exploited and the network can be severely

damaged by one person’s lapse in concentration.” During October, organizations across the Navy are scheduled to disseminate information through articles, videos, social media and graphics to educate and inform Navy personnel and partners on this vital security issue. “In my role as Navy Cybersecurity director, I am on the hunt every day for capabilities that reduce the risk of cyber warfare disrupting maritime operations,” said Vice Adm. Jan Tighe, deputy chief of naval operations for Information Warfare. “A critical step in reducing that risk, and the point of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, is to ensure that every member of our workforce understands their role in mitigating cyber threats. “If you touch a Navy network as a user, maintainer, developer or part of the cyber security workforce, you are in the cyberspace fight. Your actions and behaviors in

cyberspace can either enable or prevent adversary opportunity. Since our networks are globally interconnected, it is as important for the shore based Sailor to be cybersecurity minded as it is for those serving forward and on tactical platforms. Cybersecurity is on all of us and all hands need to think cybersecurity, whenever you are interacting with our network.” This year’s themes include: • The cyber threat is real. • You’re in the battlespace. • Operating safely in the digital environment to protect cybersecurity is an all hands effort. • Navy personnel uphold the highest standards of character and conduct in person and online. Efforts to drive home the cybersecurity imperative within the Navy will continue beyond October, as the Navy builds on the momentum provided by National Cybersecurity

Awareness month, education efforts will continue throughout the next year and beyond. Additional information on National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, including tips and resources

for the use of local commands, can be found at a dedicated DHS webpage (www.dhs.gov/ nationalcyber- security-awareness- month) or on a Department of Defense page (www.defense.gov/

News/ Special-Reports/ 0415_Cyber-Strategy). For Navy specific information on cybersecurity throughout the month October visit of www.navy.mil/local/cyberawareness.

SecDef recognizes 3 DoN personnel for outstanding contributions in the face of adversity Naval Systems War fare Center Panama City’s Christina Pate honored By Office of the Chief of Information

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Representatives from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and various Department of Defense (DoD) agencies joined The Secretary of Defense Ash Carter at the Pentagon’s auditorium Oct. 5 to award the DoD’s 36th Annual Disability Awards “As National Disability Employment Awareness Month begins, we’re reminded of our commitment to live the values we defend – to make the De-

partment of Defense more open and accessible to all who can make a contribution to our mission,” said Carter. “So I encourage all DoD components and military departments to renew their commitment to increase the employment of individuals with disabilities.” Eighteen individuals were recognized, including three members of the Department of the Navy team. Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Manpower and Reserve Affairs, the honorable Franklin R. Parker, recognized Marine Staff Sgt.

Adam Leblanc, Christina Pate and Alec Forsman. “I was totally shocked, honored and surprised by this award,” said Christina Pate, an acquisitions lead with the Naval Systems Warfare Center. “To be recognized amongst peers outside of my command is priceless.” Pate has been a civil servant for more than 33 years and currently serves as the Equal Employment Opportunity diversity council chair in Panama City, Fla. “The dedication, persever-

ance, and breath of accomplishments these men and women represent are tremendous,” said Parker. “Their service and sacrifice is an inspiration for all, and a genuine example of the triumph of the human spirit. I am honored to be able to recognize these extraordinary individuals on behalf of our Department.” Kirk Bauer, the executive directive of Disabled Sports USA, was the ceremony's key speaker. A combat-wounded veteran from the Vietnam War, he was twice awarded the

Bronze Star for heroism. He is also the recipient of the Purple Heart for wounds he sustained in combat, including the amputation of his left leg above the knee. As part of its annual observance of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which dates back to 1981, the DoD has recognized outstanding service members and civilian employees with disabilities who demonstrate the core values of their respective services, and who contribute to the DoD mission.

Audelo assumes command of HT-8 From Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Officer

F

ollowing 14 months at the helm, Cmdr. John D. McBryde turned over command of Helicopter Training Squadron Eight (HT-8) to Cmdr. Stephen Audelo at a ceremony in the National Naval Aviation Museum Oct. 7. The change of command ceremony is a Navy tradition that enables the two officers to formally exchange duties in front of the assembled squadron crew. It is also a time to recognize the accomplishments of the

outgoing commanding officer in front of his family and friends. Training Air Wing Five Commodore Capt. Mark Murray was the guest speaker for the ceremony. Through his innovative leadership as the

squadron’s 58th comofficer, manding McBryde led HT-8 to fly more than 33,500 flight hours and 16,800 sorties. This dedication enabled HT-8 to wing 423 Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and allied combat aviation professionals and fleet readiness fill squadron seats with the highest quality aviators. McBryde graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1996, earning a bachelor of science in economics. After serving as a graduate assistant coach for the U.S. Naval Academy football team, where he earned three varsity letters, he entered flight training and earned his naval aviator wings in 1998. As a MH-53E helicopter pilot, McBryde served in Corpus Christi,

vanced rotary wing training at HT-8, he received his naval aviator wings in June 2000. As a SH-60B pilot, Audelo served aboard many ships to include: USS Roosevelt (DDG 80), USS Hayler (DDG 997), USS Peleliu (LHA 5), USS Stockdale (DDG 106), and the USS Carl Vincent Carrier Strike Group. Following his graduation from the United States Naval War College with a master’s degree in national security and strategic studies, Audelo served as a strategic analyst to the NORAD and USNorthCom chief of staff, and as an executive assistant to the deputy commander, USNorthCom. He assumed duties as the executive officer of HT-8 in August 2015.

NAS Whiting Field earns Southeast Region recognition By Lt.j.g. Sarah O’Shea NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

C

ommander Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE) once again recognized Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s (NASWF’s) commitment to community service and partnerships with local organizations through the 2016 Personal Excellence Partnership Flagship Award. The command earned the award in the Medium Ashore category and will now go on to compete at the Navywide level. The Flagship award program honors commands across the Navy for their volunteer service and selfless giving to their communities. Awards are presented in five areas: Personal Excellence Partnership; Health, Safety, and Fitness; Campaign Drug Free; Project Good Neighbor; and Environmental Stewardship.

The Personal Excellence Partnership award specifically recognizes the command which best forms partnerships with schools and youth service organizations with an emphasis on education as determined by the Commander, Navy Installations Command. Volunteers for NAS Whiting Field supported several

youth focused organizations throughout 2016 including: Big Brother and Big Sister, the Civil Air Patrol, Men in Action of Milton, and the Naval Sea Cadet Corps. Additionally, Sailors provided assistance for numerous schools and educational events such as: East Milton Book Fair, Child Development Center’s educational classes, fire de-

partment open house during Fire Prevention Month, Florida’s Literacy Week, Avalon Middle School’s Career D a y, a n d m a n y others. In all, installation volu n t e e r s accounted for more than 5,000 hours of community assistance for these programs affecting thousands of youths in Santa Rosa County and the surrounding communities. PO2 Brian Johnson served as the volunteer coordinator for NAS Whiting Field, and helped to connect local organizations with the Sailors. His efforts ensured Sailors were able to support the community where they were most needed. “It’s a difficult job, but very rewarding,� he said. “A lot of

the places we go, they genuinely don't have enough people to support the event. It is great to be able to help out.�

NAS Whiting F i e l d Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau noted that being a good neighbor to the community is one of his top priorities and the volunteer spirit of the Sailors is a key element to establishing that relationship. “Our service members make a long-lasting impression on our local youth through their volunteer efforts,� he said. “They truly make a difference in the community and I couldn’t be prouder of my team.�

Mediation program needs volunteers

The County Mediation Program is looking for volunteers who are interested in becoming certified as county court mediators in Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties. Mediation allows parties in litigation the opportunity to make their own decisions for resolving their issues. The mediator is neutral in the mediation process and helps guide the discussion between the parties. The mediator is not a judge, does make any decision about how the case will be resolved, and does not offer legal or other advice of how a case might or should be resolved. Only the parties involved in the dispute have the power to reach an agreement in mediation. The necessary training is provided, at no cost, to those who participate and wish to volunteer. Seats for the training are limited. To request an application, or for more information about the training, the mediation process, or the County Mediation Program, send an e-mail to greg.knight@flcourts1.gov or call 595-4415 or 595-4482.

GOSPORT Ghost tales, haunted history aboard NASP By Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

A

murmur of voices teases your ear; you feel a sudden drop in temperature. In the icy cold you may smell an aroma of pipe or cigar smoke or catch a fleeting glimpse of movement out of the corner of your eye. Then a feeling of dread sweeps over you as you realize you’re in the presence of the supernatural ... onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. Over the years, several buildings at NASP have attained the reputation of being haunted. Whether or not you believe in ghosts or scientific explanation, a number of witnesses have reported eerie phenomena that seem to defy the senses. What better time than mid-October to explore some of NASP’s ghost tales? Admiral’s Row In 1874, Commodore Melanchton B. Woolsey was the first resident of newly built “Quarters A,” in Admiral’s Row on Johnson Street. An epidemic of yellow fever had been sweeping the area, and Woolsey didn’t want to be a victim. Believing that diseasecarrying mosquitoes couldn’t reach the third floor cupola, he moved into it to wait out the epidemic. He received his daily supplies of food – and medicinal rum – by rope basket. When the “tonic” was forgotten one day, Woolsey came down, contracted the fever, and died shortly after. His presence, as well as those of a ghostly lady clad in white, are still said to be seen and felt on occasion in Quarters A. Bldg. 191 Built in the 1850s, Bldg. 191 was a grocery store once and has served many roles over the years. It is the only remaining building of the early town of Warrington. Owned and oper-

ated by the Bauer family, it became Navy property in 1915. Once home to NASP Public Affairs and Gosport offices, Bldg. 191 may still be home to some previous inhabitants. Former Gosport reporter Larry Kachelhofer recalled receiving an unpleasant surprise when working late in the building one night. “I’ve heard people walking down the stairs when there was nobody else in the building,” he said. On another occasion, he said, voices could be heard speaking

indistinctly. A search of the building with another staffer revealed no other people. The final straw came when Kachelhofer saw what he believes was an actual apparition: an outline of a figure in a swirl of skirts, which then turned and vanished. “There is no doubt in my mind that building’s haunted,” he said. Bldg. 16 In the 1920s, Marine Capt. Guy Hall, a flight instructor, frequently whiled away off-hours playing poker with other officers. His well-known habit of shuffling poker chips with his fingers may have been his way of shifting attention from a winning hand. Hall’s luck ran out when he was killed in a training mission, but some believe he never really left Bldg. 16. Over the years, on more than one occasion, the tinkling sound of poker chips has been heard – as if they are being shuffled. The NAS Pensacola Lighthouse Featured in several television appearances, including “America’s Most Haunted Lighthouses,” the NASP light is the most famous haunted structure on base. “We believe we have at least three ghosts,” Pensacola Lighthouse Association founder Dianne Levi said. “Most of our volunteers over in the keeper’s quarters have experienced

strange things,” Levi said. “Seeing a reflection of a person or hearing voices. I myself heard someone walking from the downstairs cellar to the front door – and there was no one there inside or out.” In the light tower and in the keeper’s quarters, cigar smoke has been smelled, doors slammed by themselves and a conversation between two female voices are among a few unexplained happenings reported, Levi said.

The apparition of a woman, possibly a former lighthouse keeper’s wife, is frequently mentioned in sightings. “A family was down on the beach having a picnic,” Levi added. “It was getting towards dark and when they looked up toward the light tower, they saw the image of a lady in a long white Victorian-style dress. It was seen by three of them. But the light beam passed right through her while it circled.”

IWTC Corry Station holds graduation ceremony Story, photo by PO3 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

I

nformation Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station marked the end of a training period for 27 of the 2,200 students trained there every day with a recent ceremony held at the Naval Air Station Pensacola Corry Station chapel. The graduates consisted of Information Professional (IP) Basic Course students and two classes of the Joint Cyber Analysis Course (JCAC). Honor graduates included Lt. Kyle Decker, from the IP Basic Course, as well as SN Megann Herdegen and Spc. Charles Thompson from JCAC. The IP Basic Course provides a fundamental knowledge of the IP community and the IP’s roles within today’s Navy and information warfare community. The course enables graduates to develop, communicate and promote innovative solutions while they oversee the seamless operation of the global naval network environment. It also introduces them to the values that guide the IP community. “This course enabled me to acquire the tools necessary to become an information professional,” said Decker, a native of Aztec, New Mexico. “I can now do my part in weaving the blanket of freedom, one stitch at a

time.” Decker has orders to Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station Atlantic in Norfolk, Va. JCAC trains enlisted personnel from all services in the skills and knowledge required to perform technical network analysis in cyberspace operations. “I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to take part in this course,” said Thompson, a native of Panama City, Fla., who has orders to the Army Cyber Protection Brigade in Fort Gordon, Ga. “I feel like everything I’ve learned here will help me no matter what task I am assigned to.” Herdegen, a native of Stafford, Va., has orders to a national mission team at Fort Meade, Md., as part of the Department of Defense’s Cyber Mission Force, helping to defend the United States and its interests against cyberattacks of significant consequence. She said that the course, though challenging, builds a strong foundation for enlisted

personnel to build upon after graduation. Capt. Bill Lintz, Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) commanding officer and guest speaker for the ceremony, spoke of the importance of the graduates’ roles in the information warfare mission and what it takes to prepare them. “You have had experts: expert instructors, expert administrators, expert curriculum developers, who have spent time and energy over the course of weeks and months invested in you, invested in ensuring that you have a learn-

ing experience that can allow you to take those experiences and that knowledge forward and into what is now a cyber battlefield,” said Lintz. “It is the investment that is being made to make certain that there is an expertise and a level of knowledge that you can take forward to then fight and win in warfare. You have earned the opportunity to graduate and now go forward in support of the nation's operations.” Operations for these graduates could include working on networks; leading personnel who are managing the Navy’s net-

works; managing the nation’s or the Navy's Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I) systems; and conducting cyber operations.

GOSPORT SAPR

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
