Facts about the Ebola virus Provided by the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center

Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a viral hemorrhagic fever, a type of infection that can cause severe bleeding. It is a serious disease in humans with mortality exceeding 50 percent in those who become ill. Countries in West Africa are currently experiencing an EVD outbreak leading The World Health Organization (WHO) to declare it a public health emergency of international concern Aug. 8. While the EVD outbreak does not pose a direct threat to U.S. forces, this information is being released to inform with situational awareness and provide precautions when traveling to areas at risk. How do you become infected? The virus is spread by direct contact with, • A sick person’s blood or body fluids (urine, saliva, feces, vomit, and sweat). • Objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infectious body fluids. • Infected animals. Healthcare workers and the family and friends in close contact with Ebola patients are at the highest risk of getting

sick because they may come in contact with infected blood or body fluids. Unlike the influenza virus, EVD is not spread through the air. EVD is not spread by food or water but can be spread by consumption of “bush-meat” (eating raw/uncooked wild animal meat, especially monkey meat). What is my risk of becoming infected? The risk to Navy personnel and their families is very low. Direct contact with a sick person’s body fluids or objects contaminated with infectious body fluids is the only way to become infected. Those at highest risk include healthcare workers and family and friends of patients with EVD. What are the symptoms? • Fever (greater than 101.5). • Severe headache. • Muscle pain. • Weakness. • Diarrhea. • Vomiting. • Stomach pain. • Lack of appetite. Symptoms may appear anywhere

Sick, injured sea turtles rescued in NASP waters By Ryan Klausch Student Conservation Association Intern/Navy Conservation Associate

On Oct. 10, Navy Natural Resources Manager Mark Gibson and Student Conservation Association intern Ryan Klausch were surprised to learn that a juvenile green sea turtle had been reported near the U.S. Coast Guard Station Pensacola. The turtle had been spotted in the boat basin for a few days by Coast Guard personnel and they

reported that it looked sluggish, was having difficulty diving and

seemed to have sunken eyes. With the assistance of Seaman Aaron Black and Fireman Stephen Crisco, the sea turtle was caught and assessed for visible injuries and symptoms of disease. It had two minor scratches on the bottom of its shell, also known as the plastron, but no other obvious injuries were found. Many sea turtles are affected by a disease known as floating syndrome. The turtles accidentally ingest marine refuse such as fishing lines and plastics, and it causes an accumulation of gas in

the turtles’ guts. The excess air prevents the turtles from being able to dive and reach their food source. A few years ago, a loggerhead sea turtle rescued near Okaloosa Island suffered from this disease. It was reported to have more than $200 worth of fishing lures, lines and leaders cut off from its body, and it was found to have swallowed more than 10 feet of rope. Without the assistance of sea turtle rehabilitators, this turtle would have most certainly died. At 3 p.m. Oct. 10, Gibson and

Klausch decided that the small sea turtle at the Coast Guard Station needed some medical attention. Soon after, another green sea turtle was spotted in the boat basin. Although slightly larger, it displayed the same symptoms as the first turtle. After consulting with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the National Park Service, Klausch volunteered to transport the two green sea turtles to the Gulfarium

from two to 21 days after exposure to Ebola virus, although eight-10 days is most common. People are not contagious until they show symptoms. Some who become sick with EVD are able to recover. We do not yet fully understand why. Prevention in travelers: Avoid contact with sick individuals in order to prevent infection with Ebola virus. The best way to do this is to not travel to areas with known EVD cases. On July 29, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) upgraded travel warnings for Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia to Level III, which means to avoid nonessential travel to these areas. NavAdmin 196/14 provides guidance for Navy personnel traveling to West Africa in a leave or duty status. If you must travel to an area with known EVD cases, make sure to do the following: • Wash hands frequently. Avoid contact with blood and body fluids. • Do not handle items that may have come in contact with an infected person’s blood or body fluids. • Avoid funeral or burial rituals that require handling the body of someone who has died from EVD. • Avoid contact with bats and monkeys or blood, fluids, and raw meat prepared from these animals. Do not prepare or consume any variant of “bush-meat.” • Avoid hospitals where EVD patients are being treated. The U.S. embassy or consulate is often able to provide advice on healthcare facilities. • Pay attention to your health for 21 days after your return. Seek medical care immediately if you develop fever (greater than 101.5) and any of these symptoms: headache, muscle pain, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, or unexplained bruising or bleeding. Tell your doctor of any potential exposure to EVD. How do I report a possible EVD case? If you think you or someone you know is infected with the Ebola virus, contact your local clinic and speak with a medical provider. They will give you instructions on what to do.

Commander, Navy Region Southeast signs domestic violence awareness proclamation Story, photo by MC2(SW/AW/EXW) Stacy D. Laseter Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Rear Adm. Mary Jackson, Commander, Navy Region Southeast, signed a proclamation Oct. 9 declaring October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The proclamation underscores the Navy’s role in the community and calls upon Sailors and family members in the region to increase their efforts to prevent domestic violence. According to Hector L. Sepulveda, Navy Region Southeast fleet and family support regional program manager, this year’s theme, “Relationships should be safe, respectful and positive,” echoes the Navy’s position on developing healthy relationship skills and raises awareness of the harm that domestic violence can cause. “It affects everybody. It affects the military readiness,” Sepulveda said. “If an individual is wrapped up in domestic violence, then they are also tied up in the legal system and that is taking away from readiness and the mission.” The Navy’s Family Advocacy Program has been available since 1992 providing aid in prevention and case management. It helps both the perpetrators of domestic violence and the victims. “Victims of domestic violence are suffering. A lot of victims don’t want to report Turtles from page 1

Save your sight: Protective eyewear prevents injuries By Don Sparrow Vision Center of Excellence Strategic Planning Officer

Have you ever stopped to imagine what life would be like if you couldn’t see? If we all did, then chances are, protecting our eyes would be a higher priority. Instead, the precious sense of sight is often overlooked when in the field, in training, fixing the house or playing a pick-up game. Eye injuries can happen within an instant and can cause permanent damage with even a fleck of debris. So what do you need to do to shield your sight? Wear your protective eyewear – without exception. This is super important. Choose your Military Combat Eye Protection (MCEP) from military accredited sources such as the Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL) or the Air Force’s Flight Protective Eyewear List (FPEL). Spectacles and goggles on the list are designed to withstand battlefield conditions such as ballistic fragmentation, as well as environmental factors like wind and sand. Simply stated – donning your protective eyewear will keep you in the fight and protect your eyes from an injury that could take your sight. While thousands of

How to submit a commentary

eye injuries happen each year, 90 percent of are preventable by wearing the appropriate protective safety glasses, because shields save sight. Where and when do you need to shield your eyes? It may be easier to say when you should not, because shielding your eyes should happen all the time to guard against accidents. It’s a given to shield while in combat and in training, not just because it’s policy, but also because of the conditions. However, wearing protective eye gear also makes sense if your task entails wielding or cutting of materials, essentially anytime there are debris and particles flying in the area. Injuries also happen at home, so eye protection can protect your vision when trimming trees or cleaning the oven. You might also need to shield with hobbies

like riding a motorcycle when things are flying at your face, or hitting the court where elbows and hands to the face are part of strategy. What do you do if an eye injury is sustained? Say your buddy sustains an eye injury. Your first instinct may be to wrap it or put pressure on it like a body wound, but this is the absolute worst thing to do for an eye injury. Instead you will want to use a rigid eye shield at the point of injury to prevent pressure from getting to the eye and to prevent further trauma. The Army’s revised Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK) II includes rigid eyeshields – which are basically a small, curved, aluminum disk with padding on the edges. It keeps the pressure off the eye post-injury until the injured service member can receive

proper medical treatment by an ophthalmologist. If the aluminum shield isn’t available, then you’ll need to improvise with anything that creates a hard, dome cover over the eye area. Good substitutions include putting the eye protection back on or even the bottom of a disposable cup. Place the shield over the eye and secure it with tape on the edges – with nothing underneath. Using a shield to protect keeps the pressure off the eye, which can prevent additional injury and potentially help save your buddy’s sight. In summary, shields save sight: It is that simple. Be proactive in protecting your sight from most hazards on the job or while having fun by wearing APEL protective eyewear. Be smart in properly responding to an eye injury if you are the first on-site of an accident. Using a shield and keeping pressure off the eye could save someone’s vision. The Vision Center of Excellence urges all service members to take the proper precautions at home to protect themselves and their families not only during October, Eye Injury Prevention Month, but every day.

Fire prevention: Inattention and cooking fires Commentary from Inspector Donald Harris Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast

E

very year in the United States hundreds of lives are lost, thousands are injured and billions of dollars in property is damaged because of “unattended cooking fires.” Unattended cooking fires are the main cause of fire in the home. Kitchen fires – usually the result of a moment’s inattention – can have tragic consequences.

Sadly, most of these fires could have been prevented. Fire prevention is everyone’s responsibility. Taking necessary precautions when cooking to prevent fires. Most unattended cooking fires happen because people are negligent. A knock at the door, telephone ringing, baby crying and a bathroom break while waiting for cooking oil to heat for frying, all

could mean disaster. Let’s discuss some ways to prevent cooking fires: • Never leave heated cooking oil unattended. • When frying, grilling, broiling and boiling stay in the kitchen. • Keeping surfaces clear of combustibles (e.g. potholders, towels, rags, curtains and food packages).

• Keep children and pets away from cooking area. • Do not wear loose fitting clothing when cooking. • Ensure appliances are working properly. Sometimes cooking fires occur despite all our efforts to prevent them. Let’s look at some ways to combat cooking fires: • Use a lid to cover the pot/skillet. Leave the lid on until the pot/skillet cools. Turn

off burner if possible or remove pot/skillet from the burner. • Use baking soda or salt to extinguish the flame. • Drape a wet towel over the pot/skillet to smother the flame. • Use a fire extinguisher. Remember to stand back 6 to 8 feet from the flame. • Be careful of the slippery kitchen floor, stand on a rug or towel. • Don’t use flour or water on a grease fire.

• Don’t try to walk a small fire burning in a pot/skillet out of the house. • Don’t panic. Fires will not happen if we follow the fire safety rules. When we disregard fire safety rules the potential for fire increases. Remember, fire kills. The NAS Pensacola Regional Fire Prevention Bureau stands ready to help. Call the station at 452-8759.

Oversight of Navy quartermaster training moved to new command Story by Lt. Jason Bilbro Surface Warfare Officers School Command PAO

NEWPORT, R.I. – On Oct. 1, all quartermaster training across the fleet transitioned from the Center for Surface Combat Systems (CSCS) to the Surface Warfare Officers School (SWOS) Command. The move is administrative and no schools will be

moved. “Effectively, SWOS is assuming responsibility for all navigation operator training throughout the Navy,” explained Gretchen Woodard, SWOS’s administrative director. “This training will continue to take place at learning sites in Norfolk, Va., Great Lakes, Ill., Yokosuka, Japan, Pearl Harbor and San Diego. Additionally, Voyage Management System (VMS) training

New LCAC C4N suite completes critical design review ... The Navy successfully completed the critical design review (CDR) for a new Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Navigation (C4N) suite for landing craft, air cushion (LCAC), Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) in Panama City announced Oct. 2. The LCAC C4N suite, also known as the command module electronics package, is the user interface the crew uses to operate the craft. This new C4N suite, the System Baseline Configuration 4 (SBC4) design, employs a modular open scalable approach (MOSA). This approach will improve sustainability while helping the Navy reduce procurement costs. “The critical design review is an important milestone,” said senior software engineer Lisa Nowalk, Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD). “This technical review assessed the system final design and established the initial product baseline for SBC4.” During the CDR, the NSWC PCD team demonstrated an operational prototype based on the MOSA, along with more than 90 percent of the technical data package completed.

continues to be held here in Newport.” VMS is an electronic system that allows operators to generate voyage plans that are used to guide the ship to its desired destination. Cmdr. Justin Kubu, SWOS director of fleet training, sees great importance in the move. “The transition of QM training to SWOS highlights the importance surface community leadership has placed on navigation training,” said Kubu. “Aligning officer and enlisted navigation training will ensure continuity across career paths. This means that the skills learned by our youngest officers and quartermasters will be honed and advanced throughout their careers, emphasizing navigation as a core competency for surface warfare.” Richard Callas, SWOS executive director, views the transition as an extremely positive one. “This is a win-win for CSCS, for SWOS, and for the fleet as well,” Callas stated. “SWOS already possesses the existing infrastructure for officer navigation training. This transition will allow CSCS to focus on combat systems training. CSCS has been so supportive during this entire process; we were actually able to accelerate our turn-over by more than eight months.” SWOS Commanding Officer Capt. Dave Welch, shares Callas’ view. “Navigation is a core competency in surface warfare – for officer and enlisted Sailors. SWOS is now singly responsible for continuity and consistency in navigation training from seaman recruit to captain. I believe this is an important step to enhance confidence and competence in the fleet. I’m grateful to Capt. Bill McKinley, commanding officer at CSCS and his staff for a professional turnover of this important role.” For more information about Surface Warfare Officers School, visit https://www. netc. navy. mil /centers/ swos/.

Strong supply lines help NHP succeed Story, photos by MC1 James Stenberg NHP assistant public affairs officer

T

he logistics required to keep a hospital supplied and running properly are a large task, but Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP) Materials Management Department (MMD) is up to the challenge. The MMD is responsible for ensuring the hospital is properly equipped and stocked with necessary supplies. “The materials management department is basically the warehouse of the hospital,” said LSSA Oswaldo Rubio, supply technician, MMD, NHP. “It is responsible for taking care of the supplies that the hospital requires to complete its mission.” Supply technicians visit the

various clinics daily to deliver supplies and see if the clinics have everything they need on hand. The technicians then check the warehouse and bring the requested items back to the clinics. The warehouse holds enough stock to supply the hospital for several days without resupply. “We are responsible for stocking the medical and surgical supplies to support the hospital,” said LS2 Brett

LS2 Leon Pouncey, supply technician, Naval Hospital Pensacola Materials Management Department, moves immunization supplies from a freezer to an insulated box for transport over to the hospital.

Blakely, MMD, NHP. “We order supplies from several different sources and vendors to ensure the hospital can complete its mission at any time.” Aside from just stocking supplies in the warehouse, MMD also handles all purchases the hospital makes. “We order items such as office supplies, tools for facilities and equipment for security; everybody relies on us to get them what they need,” said Blakely. Once items are received, the receiving department of MMD is responsible for screening them. They check the quality and quantity of items being received and ensure specialty

items such as radioactive and refrigerated items are properly handled between the warehouse and the hospital. There are several other areas to MMD such as open purchase, Servmart, Defense Medical Logistic Support System (DMLSS) and the equipment division, which monitor the high-dollar assets within the hospital. The equipment division also handles all Defense Reutilization Marketing Office (DRMO) activities. Items sent to DRMO are no longer needed at NHP, but are available for other commands to use. “At the beginning it was kind of difficult because I felt

like I was away from the hospital,” Rubio said. “After learning about my job, our mission and what MMD does, it gave me more encouragement to do my job because even if I’m just delivering gauze, it is probably going to help someone in need.” Most Sailors and civilians working in MMD rarely interact with patients, but there is one thing that is certain, a hospital, like any other military unit, must have a strong supply line to be successful. Without the proper gear or the correct supplies to treat patients, there is only so much the doctors and nurses can accomplish.

NAS Whiting Field is getting energized By Ens. Kim Mahoney NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

The Department of the Navy is participating in “Energy Action Month” to highlight energy initiatives to maximize the effectiveness of ongoing energy efforts. Whether on shore or deployed in enemy territory, improvements in energy efficiency and sustainability can have a large impact on mission capability. The 2012 presidential proclamation declaring October Energy Action Month encouraged the Navy to further commit to reducing energy consumption and enhancing combat capabilities with new technology and innovative improvements to existing systems. Advances in operational conservation have obvious benefits: improved resources aboard ships and aircraft can enhance mission capabilities and intensity. Conservation ashore is just as vital for mission success, allowing bases to focus limited resources where they are most needed and decrease dependence on commercial power grids. Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) has made the Navy’s ambitious energy goals a top priority. In the past four years the installation has made large strides in reaching its energy reduction target, according to Reggie Parker, the public works department’s (PWD) utility and energy manager. The Navy’s primary shore energy goal is for each installation to reduce its overall energy consumption by 30 percent compared to its 2003 baseline usage, with electrical consumption being the largest contributor. Potable water consumption is also tracked and compared to a 2007 baseline. NAS Whiting Field has observed significant drops in electrical usage and water usage since 2011. This improvement is due to numerous changes in operating procedures by tenants and an increased awareness of the impact of individual actions. The Navy’s investment in electrical conservation is represented by the recent award of a contract to upgrade the midfield hangar bay lighting and replace street and parking lot lights with energy efficient LED fixtures. Electrical consumption is a big-ticket item on base and upgrades like these have proven to be a sound investment. The project should pay for itself in less than three years.

A $4.6 million Utility Energy Savings Contract (UESC) made similar changes on a larger scale throughout the base in 2012, and electrical consumption improved substantially, dropping 8 percent the following year. The UESC involved partnering up with a local utility company that evaluated 12 large buildings on base and identified technological enhancements and equipment improvements. Based on its research, the utility company proposed a project to save electricity, water and natural gas. “The projects pay for themselves. Our first UESC project produced approximately $250,000 in annual savings ... When we do the second UESC project, we’ll see another big cut in utility costs,” Parker said. NAS Whiting Field has been approved to pursue a second UESC project this year and has high expectations. The second project entails an inspection of 62 buildings on base to identify energy conservation measures. The anticipated project scope includes numerous

upgrades to more efficient HVAC equipment, lighting retrofits and modernizing the central energy management control system. Whiting Field has reduced energy consumption 14.9 percent since 2011, equating to more than $1.3 million in utility costs savings. The UESC project also significantly reduced water consumption. The installation cut its water usage by 15.1 percent in the past year and 40 percent overall since 2011. NASWF Public Works has repaired many leaks in the system and installed high efficiency fixtures in multiple buildings. NASWF has established a robust building energy manager (BEMs) program to drive its efforts to the deck plate level. The BEMs ensure HVAC settings are in accordance with Commander, Naval Installations Command guidelines and that equipment is working properly in assigned workplaces. The BEMs are also tasked with raising awareness of small, everyday changes that can make a big difference. “The building energy managers are our first line of defense in terms of helping to raise awareness with the occupants of their building. It’s their job to make sure people know to turn the lights and computers off when not in use, and it’s their job to make sure people report if a window is broken, weather stripping is missing or if air conditioning isn’t working properly,” Parker said. The Navy has heavily invested in big project improvements, but raising awareness on how to conserve energy with small changes still remains a large factor. Energy Action Month is used to do just that. Easy choice habits like turning lights off after leaving a room or shutting down a computer in every office makes a large impact. “The main driver of savings is awareness. If people are armed with information they can take action ... they are not going to be able to do anything if they are not aware of what can be done and how it impacts the bottom line,” Parker said. Energy changes are critical to staying in the fight longer, refueling less, and extending the Navy’s operational reach. Every base is important to contributing to the mission. The power is yours to make a difference.

Energy Action Month 5K Race raises awareness By Ens. Kim Mahoney NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

There was plenty of energy present at the second annual Energy Awareness 5K hosted by the NASWF Public Works Department and MWR Oct. 8. Participants gathered near the base fitness center stretching and sizing up the competition. The race was about more than just getting a workout in, though. base CO Capt. Matthew Coughlin gave a short speech before the race start. He mentioned how far the base has come since begin-

ning energy conservation efforts and how much more it can improve with everyone’s help. He came armed with a bill and num-

bers to make his point. “If we can knock 5 percent (of energy consumption) off our energy bill for the year, that’s about

$10,000 a month saved,” Coughlin said. The race began shortly after with a looped course beginning at the fitness center to a mile and half mark near the golf course. The first participant back was John Davis, a NASWF lifeguard. Participants included Coughlin as well as base XO, Cmdr. Gregg Gray, both of whom won medals. The NASWF Public Works Department also had an impressive showing of participants. Runners were able to look at a few booths setup to raise aware-

ness on energy conservation. A vendor from the Gulf Power was present with promotional items to draw runners over and answer any questions they had. The booth also displayed a 2012 Chevrolet Volt, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Another booth present was the Green Machine, which was a bicycle that converted motion from the pedals into DC power, promoting green energy. Lt. Kenyatto Mayes, NASWF crash officer, hopped on to demonstrate how the bike worked as well as his “brute strength.”

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 late 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 disease-carrying 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 offhours 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 ex-

perienced 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.”

MWR’s Haunting Fall Festival tomorrow (Oct. 18) • Haunting Fall Festival: 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 18, Blue Angel Recreation Park. Event is being presented by NASP’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Department. It will feature costume contests, carnival games, face painting and a hayride.

CNRSE holds CMC turnover By MC2(SW/AW/EXW) Stacy D. Laseter Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs

CMDCM(SW/AW) Michael K. Jackson

Navy Region Southeast (NRSE) recently welcomed its new command master chief (CMDCM) to the staff when CMDCM (AW/SS) Michael K. Jackson relieved CMDCM (SW/AW) Herbert “Mack” Ellis as the Region CMC Sept. 25. Jackson comes to NRSE following tour as the CMC of Naval Leadership and Ethics Center in Newport, R.I. He expressed gratitude for the work Ellis has put forth over the past three years. With 30 years of naval service, nine of

which have been as a CMC, Jackson has had plenty of experience. His previous CMC tours include the “Ragin’ Bulls” of StrikeFighter Squadron (VFA) 37, Naval Weapons Station Charleston and Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 17. “I’d like to carry on the proud reputation that (Navy) Region Southeast has across the CNIC domain,” Jackson said. Ellis began his assignment at NRSE in April 2011 following his previous tour of duty at Navy Region Hawaii in Pearl Harbor. He said the entire NRSE team led to the success of the region. “I came here three years ago and I’ve had

great support. I’ve brought a new philosophy here and I’ve made sure it was executed, but I didn’t do the work,” Ellis said. “I always give the credit where it’s due.” And to Ellis, that credit should be given straight back to the Sailors and civilians of Navy Region Southeast. “These past three years have been very rewarding. Every Sailor and civilian here has a voice,” Ellis said. “I wish I could stay, but Master Chief Jackson is going to make this better.” Ellis will go on to be the CMC for U.S. Fourth Fleet headquarters at Naval StationMayport.
