TOPGUN detachment training fleet students at NASP Story, photo by Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

Instructors and aircraft from NAS Fallon’s Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center (NSAWCN7) “TOPGUN” are onboard NAS Pensacola for two weeks’ training exercise. “We’re doing training for the TOPGUN Class 01-13,” Lt. Peter Cornett, spokesperson for the group, said. “We do this four times a year, for each TOPGUN class. We vary the location, between here and (NAS) Key West, At NAS Pensacola’s Forrest Sherman Field, “adversary jets” from visiting NSAWC-N7 “TOPGUN” include two (MCAS) Miramar, (NAS) Navy-marked F-16 “Fighting Falcon” aircraft (left) and an F/A-18 (blue, with red star).

At NAS Fallon, where the group is based, the field’s elevation is about 4,000 feet. “We don’t have to train over water, but we like to, so we can fight down to a lower altitude,” Cornett explained. “Back in Fallon we have a higher hard deck, so it’s definitely nice to be able to fight to the water.” For every class of student aviators training in BFM, the fleet sends out aircraft to support the

A special group of World War II veterans paid a visit to NAS Pensacola Oct. 12. Wearing matching blue baseball caps, seven members of the 1st Air Commando group had some stories of their own to tell during a VIP tour of

the National Naval Aviation Museum. Volunteer coordinator, Phil Duryea, led the tour, which included family members and friends. Vice Adm. Hoewing, president of the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation, greeted the group and thanked them for their service. “We are so excited that you all have come over to

take a look at our place,” he said. “We are really proud of you all and to have you come here and see your National Naval Aviation Museum is really great.” The unit earned its motto of “Any Place, Any Time, Any Where” by supporting the British special forces infiltration of Japanese rear supply areas in the China-Burma-India

theater from 1943 to 1945. The unit was a key player in Project 9, an “aerial invasion of Burma” using fighters, bombers, transports, gliders and helicopters, which was dubbed Operation Thursday. “We are kind of proud that we were the 1st Air Commandos,” said James Eckert. “We were lucky that the venture we were on was successful.” Other special operations units followed in their footsteps, he said. “Now every branch of the service has one – the Army has the Rangers, the Navy has their SEALs and Marines have their recon teams,” he said. Discussion about a P51 Mustang reminded Bill Ravey of his experience during initial gunnery training. He had to crash land after “white-hot” bullets rebounded off of a target that was on solid rock and hit his plane. “I guess I shot myself down,” he said. He said he suffered facial cuts that required surgery, but was back flying three weeks later. The field trip to the museum was a part of the group’s final reunion Oct. 11 to 14 in Fort Walton Beach. With their numbers

dwindling, members voted to make this their last meeting, said Bill Cartwright, who has enjoyed attending many reunions throughout the years. “This is absolutely the finest group of men that I have ever associated with in my 91 years,” he said. “They were hand-picked

in the beginning and they were picked for good reasons.” The visiting commandos also included retired Air Force Lt. Col. Richard “Dick” Cole, one of the five remaining members of the Doolittle Raiders. Cole, who was Lt. Col.

February 2013 SELRES advancement exams announced By Ed Barker NETC PAO

February 2013 Navy-wide examinations for advancement in rate of E-4 to E-7 Selected Reserve (SELRES) personnel and FY-14 SELRES Chief Petty Officer Selection Boards were announced Oct. 11 in Naval Administrative Message (NavAdmin) 308-12. The Cycle 092 exams apply to Sailors serving on voluntary recall, active duty training, or active duty under any presidential recall authority including mobilization. These Sailors will compete as SELRES Inactive (USNR-Inactive). Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) personnel who are mobilized are considered under the SELRES requirements for advancement. “There are several exam eligibility requirements specified in this NavAdmin,” said Cmdr. Scott Briquelet, Navy Advancement Center director. “Command Career Counselors and Educational Services Officers need to pay close attention to the details in the NavAdmin and its listed references to make sure their Sailors are qualified to take the upcoming exam.” The February SELRES examinations will be the first administered with greater focus on technical rating knowledge, as announced in NavAdmin 197/11. The restructured E-4 to E-6 exams will consist of 25 Professional Military Knowledge (PMK) and 150 job-specific technical questions for TOPGUN from page 1

And Cole is planning to return for another visit to the area next year. The remaining members of the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders are scheduled to mark the 71st anniversary of their historic 1942 raid in Fort Walton Beach in April 2013.

I drive a minivan and I’m cool with that By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

For decades, I tried to be cool. But despite numerous desperate attempts to wear fashionable clothes, listen to hip music, take up trendy hobbies and become more aloof, I just could not change who I was. Finally, in my 40s, I decided to accept my unfashionable lot in life and give in to my nerdiness. No sooner did I embrace my lack of swag, when suddenly, without trying, I became the epitome of chic. No, I’m not whitening my teeth. I don’t play acoustic guitar on my front porch swing. I have never run a marathon, snow boarded or surfed. I only wear a waterproof sports watch so I don’t have to take it off when I wash dishes. I have never eaten Kobe beef and I am not well versed on Beaujolais wines. I look ridiculous in a maxi dress, and avoid chunky jewelry because it catches on stuff. Although we have a big dog – which is kinda cool – he is sloppy and will not go in the water above his knees. The last big concert I went to was Jimmy Buffet in 2000, but I was eight months pregnant and worried about second hand smoke at the time. I have no tattoos or trendy

Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. Molinari and her family are currently stationed at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, Fla. body piercings, unless you count that second hole in my left ear that my roommate from college made for me in

our dorm room in 1985. She used a potato and a sewing needle. Frankly, I’m just a middleaged stay-at-home mom. But here’s the thing: I’m cool now because I drive a minivan. Not just any minivan, mind you – an old minivan that we bought used. A minivan that started out white and shiny, but after 100,000 miles and three military moves, now has the dull hue of stale bread, pitted with chips and tiny bubbles of rust. The once glimmering alloy wheels are beginning to corrode and peel. The formerly black bumper and trim has turned to a hazy shade of grey. Despite regular Shop-Vacing and spritzing with Armor All, the interior has also seen better days. There is a hole in the carpet, where my left foot rests during endless daily car pools to school, sports and music lessons. The wire to the power sliding door snapped a couple years ago. Two air fresheners can’t hide the lingering odor from years of post-practice sweaty teens, countless spilled drinks and chicken nuggets lost between seats. Why, you might be asking yourself, would driving a used minivan with perpetually sticky cup holders and fruit snacks stuck in the car-

pet make me cool? I know, it is hard to believe, considering that minivans have never been particularly cool. Quite the contrary, in fact. Until recently, a hip-happening trendy mom would not be caught dead in a minivan. Stylish moms overwhelmingly prefer SUVs, which project an image of sporty spontaneity and an adventuresome spirit. While a minivan says, “I’m frugal, eat meatloaf, wear comfortable cotton underwear and drink homebrewed coffee with powdered creamer every morning while taking the kids to school,” an SUV screams, “Despite the fact that I only drive on suburban paved roads between The Gap, pee wee soccer practice and the Starbucks drive-through, I am the type that might drop everything, throw on a bikini and some Ray Bans, and go kite surfing for the day.” However, recently, our struggling economy has forced moms everywhere to change their habits and their images. Families are tightening budgets, clipping coupons and paying with cash. The mom who used to look so stylish with her 11miles-per-gallon Range Rover, overpriced coffee and designer handbag, is “SO” last season in today’s unfor-

tunate economic climate. Nowadays, frugality is the latest fad. The new trendsetters shop at discount stores, know which grocery stores will double coupons and drive cars that get good gas mileage. Today’s hottest style is savvy spending, and controlling the family budget is all the rage. As for me, I bought my purse at TJ Maxx. We make our own pizza at home on Friday nights. We have not used our credit card in eight months. And I drive a minivan. Try not to hate me because I’m so cool.

Area service members volunteer at United Way’s ‘Day of Caring’ By Steve Vanderwerff NETC PAO

Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) and Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) volunteers helped out at a Pensacola elementary school during United Way’s 20th annual Day of Caring Oct. 12. Before working on projects at the school, the Navy team joined close to 700 volunteers from around the community at the Pensacola Blue Wahoos baseball stadium for breakfast and event kickoff. Other groups from the area included volunteers from the Blue Angels, University of West Florida cheerleaders and Gulf Power. “It was wonderful being surrounded by all the different people from around the community. I was impressed by the amount of people at the kickoff. I had no idea there were so many people involved in this community effort,” said NETC volunteer ETCS Jason Szot “I was really impressed when they spoke about the number of man hours that will save the community money in areas that need assistance instead of having to go out and pay someone to come in and do the type of work we’re doing.” At Global Learning Academy, the Navy training team was met by Judy La Bounty, the school’s assistant principal, who thanked them for their commitment to the community and lending a hand. She then assigned projects assisting teachers and landscaping for those wanting to work outside. “Having NETC and NETSAFA come out and work with us is a match made in heaven,” La Bounty said. “The Navy means so much to this community and for them to be a part of this school to help us out is awesome. NETC has been an integral part of our volunteer program for many years. It’s not just this particular day. Today is just an organized event for a particular reason, but NETC joins us quite often, participating and supporting us throughout the year.” In 2011, United Way of Escambia County mobilized more than 1,100 volunteers from local businesses and military commands who contributed 5,620 hours of service for 110 projects. Day of Caring volunteers saved local nonprofits and schools $120,000 in labor costs. They helped with lawn maintenance, painted homes for the elderly, read to children and facilitated canned food and supply drives. “Who doesn’t want to help their community? NETC and NETSAFA are full of great people who care about the community and today was an excellent opportunity to show that kind of support,” said project leader YN1 Jennifer Zeravsky. “It’s my first time being involved with ‘Day of Caring.’ When I first found out about the project and that we could be involved as a team I just took the lead. It was wonderful that Global Learning Academy opened their doors to us, and allowed us to spend the day with them.” NETC volunteer PNCM Bryan Williams isn’t unfamiliar with working on community relations projects and thinks it’s important for service members to be goodwill ambassadors. “It’s about giving back to the community and allowing the community to see another side of the military, not just the warfighter aspect,” he said. “Throughout my Navy career, I’ve volunteered for numerous projects. It builds good relationships and the people want you back after they see how much time we invest and the love we have for the people in the community.”

An estimated 165 service members from NAS Pensacola commands participated in United Way’s 20th annual Day of Caring Oct. 12. The service members donated an estimated 990 man-hours, working at 12 different locations around the city.

Navy Energy Awareness Month

Tips and tricks for ener gy conser vation and savings from NavFac SE

De-energize lights for 100 percent savings The Navy’s utilities and energy cost savings “tiger team” has traveled the world looking for low cost energy savings opportunities on Navy bases. One recurring opportunity involves de-energizing light fixtures that just aren’t needed. Often the excess fixtures are in hallways. Light levels in hallways can be considerably lower than light levels in work areas. When hallways are bright and fixtures are closely spaced, every other fixture can often be de-energized for energy savings. If you see lights that don’t seem to serve a purpose, or bright hallways, tell your supervisor or building energy monitor about the potential energy savings. Public works can evaluate the lighting requirements and de-energize unnecessary fixtures, helping your building and your base to be just a little greener.

Are you making the best use of daylight? It may seem like an odd question, but a few years back, a naval shipyard adopted a lunchtime lights out policy in the production shops. Naval shipyards were all constructed more than 100 years ago, and many of the shops are in tall brick buildings with a lot of window area. The lights out policy was intended more to increase energy awareness in the production shops than to save energy over lunchtime. But the energy savings surprised a lot of people. Some of the shops found that on nice days, they didn’t need to turn the lights back on in the afternoon. Another characteristic of shipyard production shops is that they typically aren’t air-conditioned. Leaving off heat-generating lights on hot afternoons can also improve comfort. That makes two good reasons to try shutting off the lights in the afternoon when you have a source of daylight. A few task lights here and there might be all you need to work safely, productively and energy efficiently. In other types of buildings it might make more sense to close blinds to keep out the heat, especially on the south and west side of the building. The right light – light levels for specific tasks The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) provides guidelines for the optimal light levels needed for various human tasks. The Navy generally follows IESNA guidelines, but even within the guidelines, lighting designers are given substantial leeway. Here are some general rules of thumb about light levels: Light levels given are for a specific task, not an entire room. Use task lighting to put bright light on detail work. Light levels for office work are different, based on whether you are predominantly reading text on paper or predominantly reading text on a computer monitor. In today’s computer-based offices, 30 foot-candles (fc) is usually considered appropriate, as opposed to 50-fc for yesterday’s task of reading or typing text on paper all day. If you need more light for reading, ask for a task light. Light levels recommended for general navigation are much lower than those recommended for more detailed visual tasks. Hallway lighting can be much lower than office lighting, with 10-fc generally considered adequate. Two-fc should be plenty for night lighting in parking lots.

“It’s too hot. It’s too cold.” Anybody who has performed energy surveys in work spaces has heard these cries for help. Due to differences in human metabolism, sometimes people who sit right next to each other have the opposite complaint. Another interesting human variable: some people want to turn the heat up to 72 degrees in the winter and turn the air conditioning down to 68 degrees in the summer. That just doesn’t make sense. The Navy has energy efficiency standards that apply to space temperatures: Cool to no lower than 78 degrees, and heat to no higher than 68 or 70 degrees. Since these are average temperature targets, different rooms might have different temperatures, especially in older buildings with large areas and few thermostats. Navy standards also exist for after hours, to adjust temperature setpoints to provide less heat in the winter and less cooling in the summer when the building is unoccupied. It seems like opening windows should help if you’re too warm, but it wastes energy when the heat or air conditioning is running. Your open window can confuse a thermostat that controls the heat supply to spaces that aren’t benefiting from your outside air, and make it difficult to pinpoint the source of their temperature complaints (you). The best things you can do if you are too warm or too cold are (A) dress in layers and (B) let your supervisor and facility energy monitor know about your issues. Your building’s climate control system may be in need of some attention, especially when everyone has the same complaint. If you tend to be cold, and sit in a colder area of the building, you might ask your supervisor if you can move to a location that’s a better fit for your metabolism. If your energy team gives you permission to open windows temporarily while a condition is being resolved, be sure to shut them at night to minimize energy waste. Every drop counts – fix those leaks Nationwide, more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year. • Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak. • Examine faucet gaskets and pipe fittings for any water on the outside of the pipe to check for surface leaks.

Computer system energy efficiency At work, computer system energy efficiency means shutting things off when we don’t need them. Somebody else chooses our equipment and makes sure energy-saving “sleep mode” settings are enabled. Follow these simple steps to make sure your computer system gets all the latest updates, but also saves the most energy by getting some of the same time off work that you do. 1. At the end of the day, shut down your computer by going to the “start/shut down” selection in the lower left hand corner of your monitor. 2. Make sure your computer’s central processing unit is plugged into surge-protected power that won’t be switched off when you leave. 3. Make sure peripheral units are plugged into a surge protected plug strip with a switch that is easy for you to reach, and switch it off when you shut down your computer. Peripheral units may include your monitor, speakers, a personal printer and scanner. As long as you follow steps 1 and 2 above, your computer can be energized remotely during the night to receive software updates. At home, in addition to shutting equipment off when you don’t need it, you can save energy by buying Energy Star equipment and ensuring that power management “sleep mode” settings are enabled. You might also consider using a laptop instead of desktop unit for an energy savings of 50 to 80 percent.

NASWF MWR Outdoor Adventures shows off the goods

Ron McCurdy from NASWF Ground Electronics and his children look over one of the small-sail Hobie kayaks that Outdoor Adventures placed on display for guests during an open house event recently. Guests were treated to grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, a chance to win door prizes, as well as an opportunity to view and even use some of the equipment. Story, photo by Jay Cope NASWF PAO

Placing equipment all across the lawn in front of their warehouse, Morale Welfare and Recreation’s Outdoor Adventure staff wanted Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s team to know the types of fun available to them if they want to hit the “great outdoors.” By turning a Friday afternoon into a small party, the group encouraged potential patrons to make the trip over to the warehouse and hopefully surprised them with the wide array of equipment they keep stored for use by authorized customers. The Outdoor Adventure team set up displays, provided door prizes, cooked

hamburgers and hot dogs, and allowed tests of some of the equipment. Marine 2nd Lt. Zach Eldridge, who only recently checked on board, scoped out the scene and said he thinks he will use the equipment in the future. “My wife and I use Whiting Park a lot, and I wanted to see the equipment,” said Eldridge. “Now that the weather is getting nicer, we might want to use the mountain bikes, kayaks or the canoes,” he said. The list of equipment available through Outdoor Adventures is substantial, and the rental fees are kept affordable for a primarily military clientele. Items such as Hobie brand sail kayaks, fishing kayaks, tandem units and more are the premiere items.

However, the list of available equipment includes almost anything you could need for some outdoor fun. Mountain bikes, sleeping bags, tents, coolers, camping stoves, outdoor chairs and more can be rented for daily, weekend or longer durations. “The Hobie dealer said we have one of the best fleets of their equipment in the country,” said new Outdoor Adventures director Jessica Arbogast. “We really want to make sure everyone knows that we have these items available. For the fantastic equipment that it is, it is underutilized.” Typical hours for the program are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Fridays, and halfdays on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.

Outdoor Adventures has a standing 10 percent discount for active-duty and retired military and their dependents. Arbogast took over the program Aug. 1 and has been trying to increase patronage of the facility over the last two months. Ziplining at Outdoors Unlimited, rock wall climbing at University of West Florida and a canoe/kayak day are some of the items she intends to offer in the future as she attempts to reinvigorate the program. In the meantime, base personnel have the ability to plan their own fun with minimal costs. “Our program gives people the opportunity to use top equipment at really low prices. We just want to help everyone take advantage of that,” she said.

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


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. building of the early town of Warrington. Owned and operated by the Bauer family, it became Navy property in 1915.

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

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’s 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.”

‘Stop Zombie Mouth’ keeps cavities from having a ghost of a chance (NAPS) – This Halloween, the Tooth Fairy will have unlikely allies: a horde of humorous, family friendly undead creatures dedicated to eradicating the dreaded “zombie mouth” syndrome. To help raise awareness of oral health among children and their parents during Halloween, the American Dental Association (ADA), the leading source of oral health–related information, and video game developer PopCap Games have kicked off “Stop Zombie Mouth,” a program featuring the G-rated hit video game, “Plants vs. Zombies.” The “Stop Zombie Mouth” campaign features coupons for free copies of the award-winning game as a tooth-friendly alternative to candy for Halloween. PopCap will give away millions of copies of the game along with more than a million free packs of gameinspired trading cards and other themed items. The trad-

ing cards will feature dozens of the game’s beloved “fundead” icons and will have tips for children to help keep their teeth healthy during the sugary holiday. Parents and other adults who host trick-ortreating children on Halloween can pick up free game coupons (redeemable for the full PC/Mac edition of “Plants vs. Zombies”) from participating ADA member dentists or by downloading them directly from www.stopzombiemouth.com. Dentists agree that sugar can lead to a serious increase in cavities amongst children. “Tooth decay results in more than 51 million hours of missed school each year. Diet plays an important role in oral health: Too much sugar can lead to cavities down the road,” explained Dr. William Calnon, president of the ADA.

“Tooth decay in children is almost entirely preventable,” added Dr. Jonathan Shenkin, ADA spokesperson on pediatric dentistry. “Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and eating a balanced diet can lead to improved oral health and improved overall health.” From Nov.1-10, children will be able to redeem the coupons for free copies of “Plants vs. Zombies.” In the family-friendly game, wacky zombies are invading the player’s yard and the only defense is an arsenal of zombie-zapping plants like peashooters and cherry bombs. The game is easy to learn, but tough to master and never the same twice. You can find further facts about the game and the campaign at www.stopzombiemouth.com.

Underwater Construction Team (UCT) training course overhaul makes a splash By Susan E. Lester and SWCS (SCW/DV) M. Brian Oliver CSFE PAO

PANAMA CITY, Fla. – As the latest Underwater Construction Technician Basic (UCT-B) course began Sept. 24 at the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center (NDSTC), students and instructors were pioneering major changes to their curriculum. The changes are the product of the U C T - B course revision and update project resulting from a H u m a n Performance Requirements Review (HPRR) and Job Duty Task Analysis (JDTA) for Navy Diver core and UCT strand courses taught by the Center for Seabees and Facilities Engineering (CSFE) in Port Hueneme, Calif. “This curriculum update is a major change to our instructor delivery methods,” said Lt. Dave Hallam, Seabee Diving Division officer-in-charge at NDSTC. “We are now focused on teaching our students to use references and technical manuals instead of relying on

PowerPoint briefings and notes. Using the source material helps them understand the concept of being life-long learners and looking to the most up-to-date references throughout their career.” As part of implementing the updated UCT-B course, a team from CSFE monitored the initial offering of the newly reformatted curriculum. The project encompassed four volumes of information, 37 topics, and more than 704 hours (12 weeks) of instructional curriculum, and required nearly 14,000 man-hours to complete. UCT instructor EO1 James McVicar noted that the hard work that CSFE and the UCT instructors invested in the new curriculum is evident in his student’s performance. “The students are presented with the same information on the same timeline as before but as a result of the new format, they have vast improvements in comprehension and retention,” said McVicar. “The reference-based instruction that our UCT-B students are receiving now is far better than anything we taught in the past.”

The curriculum review brought together training specialists from two separate centers. “This detailed course overhaul was a huge undertaking by CSFE and NDSTC and the results were seen from the first class benefitting from the revised UCT-B curriculum,” said Cmdr. Michael Egan, NDSTC commanding officer. “There were many challenges along the way, but in the end, the outcome was a very much

improved UCT-B course. We are still fine-tuning things but I’m confident the revised course will produce and enhance the finest underwater construction technicians in the world.” This course revision is one of many that CSFE is spearheading as part of the Seabee Technical Training Reset Initiative, with the goal of delivering updated training to all Seabees during the course of the next two years.

Cuban missile crisis recalled Presentation marks 50-year anniversary From the National Naval Aviation Museum

The Naval Aviation Museum Foundation has scheduled a Discovery Saturday presentation at 10 a.m. tomorrow, Oct. 20, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Cuban missile crisis. Historian and author Kenneth V. Jack will lead the presentation in the naval aviation museum’s F-8 Crusader aircraft located in Hangar Bay One. He will be joined by a special guest, retired Navy Capt. Dan Curry. One of the forgotten, yet crucial details of the crisis, were the low-level reconnaissance missions – designated as Operation Blue Moon – flown by U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force pilots that proved to President John F. Kennedy that the Russians had moved missiles into Cuba. Jack’s recently released book, “Blue Moon Over Cuba,” began as the unfinished memoirs of the commander of the naval squadron that flew the top secret missions, Capt. William B. Ecker. Ecker was the lead aviator on the first mission and went on to play a leading role in the reconnaissance flights throughout

the crisis. The book was completed by Jack. A book signing will follow the presentation. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

After he enlisted in the Navy in 1959, Jack was first trained as a Navy photographer and later as a photographic-electronics technician responsible for maintaining aircraft photo electronics equipment. He participated in the implementation of the forward-firing KA-45 camera, which gave unique capabilities for capturing detailed photographic intelligence of the Soviet missile sites being installed in Cuba.
