IWTC students lend a hand at animal shelter From Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

Sailors assigned to Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station participated in a community service event at the Escambia County Animal Shelter Oct. 22. The volunteer event was organized by Corry United, a student-led organization dedicated to promoting community-building events and leadership opportunities. SN Dylan Odett, the Corry United public affairs spokesperson, said the experience was part of an effort to provide IWTC Corry Station students with weekend activities that promote positive decisions as they train to

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.

Navy’s most advanced warship, USS Zumwalt, commissioned From USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) Public Affairs

B

ALTIMORE (NNS) – The Navy’s newest and most technologically advanced warship, USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) was commissioned into active service Oct. 15 at North Locust Point in Baltimore, Md. Zumwalt, the lead ship of a class of next-generation multi-mission destroyers, features a state-of-the-art electric propulsion system, wavepiercing tumblehome hull, stealth design, and the latest warfighting technology and weaponry available. Secretary of the Navy, the Hon. Ray Mabus, delivered the ceremony’s principal address. “This ship is an example of a larger initiative to increase operational stability and give the U.S. a strategic advantage,” said Mabus. “Our Navy and our Marine Corps, uniquely, provide presence – around the globe, around the clock – ensuring stability, reassuring allies, deterring adversaries, and providing the nation’s leaders with options in times of crisis.” The ship’s co-sponsors, Zumwalt and Ann Mouzetta ZumwaltWeathers, are daughters of former Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt Jr., after whom the ship is named. The sisters were an integral part of the ceremony, giving the order to “man our ship and bring her to life,” in keeping with naval tradition. The Zumwalt-class destroyer will be capable of performing a range of deterrence, power projection, sea control, and command and control missions while allowing the Navy to evolve with new systems and missions. It does all of this while maintaining its stealth – making this visually imposing ship difficult to find whether close to the shore or far out to sea. “Today’s ceremony marked the culmination of

over three years of dedication and hard work by some of the finest Sailors I have had the pleasure to lead,” said Capt. James A. Kirk, commanding officer of Zumwalt. “The only thing more impressive than the capabilities of the ship are the capabilities of its fine crew.” Zumwalt will challenge adversaries and their way of thinking about how we employ our forces, providing an asymmetric advantage. Working with Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, littoral combat ships, and amphibious ships to form adaptive force packages, Zumwalt-class destroyers will use its computing capabilities to make these groups more lethal through increased range, deception, computer integration, and data analysis from various platforms. With its stealth, size, power, and advanced combat systems, this warship will serve as a centerpiece for deterrence and stability in the maritime environment. “This destroyer, like the others in our fleet, is capable of projecting power, no doubt,” said Mabus. “The Zumwalt-class is much larger than today’s destroyers with a considerably larger flight deck – enough space to operate host Joint Strike Fighters, MV-22 Ospreys, and unmanned systems and a Vertical Launch System second to none.”

Balloons fly and the crowd applauds as the Navy’s newest and most technologically advanced warship, USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000), is brought to life during a commissioning ceremony at North Locust Point in Baltimore. Photo by PO1 Nathan Laird

In addition to its size, the Zumwalt class will be the first Navy warships to utilize an integrated power system that will produce enough power to run current systems, as well as the power required for future weapons, computing, and sensor systems. Zumwalt generates approximately 78 megawatts of power, almost as much as a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. This means the ship can operate all of its systems and still generate enough electricity to power a small town, which provides the extra capacity to accommodate future weapons and computing systems. Combined with its size and power, Zumwalt will be able to integrate emerging technologies and new capabilities as they are delivered to the fleet. USS Zumwalt embodies the legacy of warfighting excellence and innovation of Adm. Zumwalt, a veteran of World War II and the conflicts in Korea and Viet-

nam. He exemplified honor, courage and commitment during 32 years of dedicated naval service. Believing it was his job to “modernize and humanize” the Navy, Zumwalt chose to embrace change and to lead it from within. “I witnessed as he (Zumwalt) transformed our Navy, one Z-gram at a time ... removing demeaning and abrasive regulations and moving to eliminate the scourge of racism and sexism from within our Navy,” said Mabus. “Among many initiatives, he opened flight training to women and increased recruiting of under-represented Americans. And, as has always been the case when we open opportunities in our Navy and Marine Corps, we got stronger.” As the 19th Chief of Naval Operations, Zumwalt embrace of innovation resulted in a number of successful new programs, including the Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate, the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine and the F-14 Tomcat, all of which had lasting impacts on the warfighting readiness of the Navy. Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John

Richardson, also spoke at the ceremony, commenting on the significance of the ship’s namesake. “Adm. Zumwalt, especially during his time as CNO, ensured that our institution lived by its values,” said Richardson. “He was the ‘The Sailor’s Admiral,’ looking at new ideas, acting to the limit of his authorities, and adjusting along the way to make his Navy ready for combat – but also with full cognizance of the impact on the Sailors that made up that Navy.” Perhaps most importantly, Adm. Zumwalt was a social reformer who recognized the primary forcemultiplier of the U.S. Navy continued to be its Sailors, and as such began quality of life improvements throughout the Fleet. He was considered a “thinking officer” who was devoted to Sailors and creating an environment where everyone was treated equally – a legacy that can that can be seen today in the diversity of the fleet. His “one Navy” mentality reminds today’s Sailors that taking care of our warfighters ensures the Navy remains tough, bold and ready. “To say the Navy was

transformed by Adm. Zumwalt is an understatement. Indeed, every leader on this stage and the great crew standing before us has benefited from Bud Zuwalt’s passion to make the Navy even better,” said Vice Adm. Tom Rowden, commander, Naval Surface Forces, during the ceremony. “So today we welcome this revolutionary warship to the fleet. A ship that demonstrates daring design and cuttingedge capability.” “On behalf of the U.S. Naval Surface Force, I proudly accept ownership of the Navy’s newest ship to the fleet,” Rowden said. Zumwalt is scheduled to begin her transit to San Diego, making several port visits along the way. Upon arrival in San Diego, USS Zumwalt will begin installation of her combat systems, testing and evaluation, and operational integration with the fleet. Once fully integrated, Zumwalt’s stealth, power and lethality will provide a vital link from the Navy’s current needs to its future capabilities.

Fire Prevention Month: Focus on cooking safety From Fire Prevention Office Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast

C

ooking for me is a pure joy, especially on Saturday mornings where I love cooking up a western omelet, bacon, grits and toast. On the flip side, I must say that cooking fires are the No. 1cause of home fires and injuries, with “unattended cooking” being the leading cause of fires in the kitchen. I have listed some items for you to consider while you’re in the kitchen to keep the experience a joyful one. • Always be alert to your surroundings. If it is late and you are tired, consider not cooking – try a snack to satisfy your urge. • Keep the cooking area clear of combustibles such as paper towels, kitchen towels and oven mitts; don’t wear loose long-sleeve clothing that could snag a handle or get too close to the burner. • Keep young children three feet away from the stove – teach older children how to safely cook.

• Keep pot handles turned in so they don’t get bumped and spill. • When you fry, keep a lid for the pan near in the event you have a grease fire – if you do, slide the lid over the pan and turn off the burner (no peeking) – let it cool for at least five to 10 minutes. • When you bake – try and prevent spills in the oven. If you have a spill and a fire starts, close the oven door and turn the oven off. The heat goes down and the fire goes out

– ovens are sealed. Remember, when your selfcleaning oven is on the temperature gets upwards to 550 degrees, so you are safe. • Cooking temperatures – when frying, bring your pan and oil up gradually. If you see a light haze of smoke start to appear, lower your temperature and remove the pan from the burner to cool for a few minutes then adjust your temperature and continue. Remember, unattended cooking is the leading

cause of fires and injuries. If you must leave the kitchen, turn off and remove the pan from the burner – a second is all it takes for a disaster with a hot frying pan. • Finally – with the various holidays fast approaching be mindful of how you cook, whether it

be deep frying a turkey, frying fish, baking or grilling – be safe, use common sense and take your time. We all multi-task, but always remember to be fire safe. • 9-1-1 – In the event of a fire or medical emergency this is the number (911). The information

Navy updates limited duty tracking system From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – The Navy is changing the way it tracks limited duty (LIMDU), according to NavAdmin 218/16 released Oct. 17. The LIMDU Sailor and Marine Readiness Tracker System (SMART) is replacing the Med-

ical Evaluation Board System (MEDBOLTS) in managing the tracking of Temporary LIMDU (TLD). According to NavAdmin 218/16, to access the new system deployability coordinators must complete an online computerbased training course. The course can be accessed at http://edqtest. med.navy.mil/cbts/. After com-

pleting training, deployability coordinators can then access LIMDU SMART by contacting their patient administration office at their command's servicing medical treatment facility. The transition to LIMDU SMART is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 30, with the exception of U.S. European Command (EUCOM) and U.S.

Africa Command (AFRICOM) medical training facilities. For more information, read the message at http:// www. npc. navy. mil/. For more information, visit www.navy.mil, www.facebook. com/usnavy, or www. twitter. com/ usnavy. For more news from NPC, visit http://www.navy.mil/local/npc/.

you must give is: Location, address or building number, where in the facility: kitchen, bedroom and floor; the nature of the fire – electrical fire, cooking fire, and any injuries such as a fall or chest pains. Contact: provide a good call back number and answer all the questions to the best of your ability. • Never hesitate to call 911 – we would rather respond to something that turns out to be nothing more than a cloud of smoke, than for you to delay and we arrive to an active fire with flames showing. We at Fire and & Emergency Services Gulf Coast wish you a safe and enjoyable holiday season.

TraWing-5 Sailors earn meritorious advancement By Lt.j.g. Sarah O’Shea NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Training Air Wing Five (TraWing-5) recently advanced two Sailors to first class petty officer due to their dedication and superior performance. PO1 Matthew Cook, Helicopter Training Squadron (HT-18), and PO1 Jon Kangas, HT-8, earned the promotion under the Meritorious Advancement Program (MAP). Both crewchiefs demonstrated commitment to the training command through their superior performance in the aircraft. The MAP allows a commanding officer to promote Sailors in his or her unit (E-3 through E-5) to the next paygrade for exemplary service. The program expanded in fiscal year 2016 to include shore commands allowing these commands to advance their best performers. Cook developed new crew resource management (CRM) skills in flight that increased flight safety. In addition to

dedication to aircraft and personnel safety, Cook supported the command as the command aviation safety petty officer, the urinalysis coordinator, and the supply petty officer. In all three capacities, Cook exceeded his duties by recording mishaps, ensuring there were zero discrepancies in drug screening. Furthermore, he managed a nearly $100,000 budget and accurately matched future needs to available assets. According to the Chief of Naval Personnel in the administrative guidance for MAP, “(The program) is intended to give commanding officers greater authority to recognize superior performance and advance their very best Sailors.� According to their skippers, both Sailors meet and exceed that criteria.

Cmdr. Brian Sanderson, Commander, HT-18 praised Cook, and emphasized his fitness for the n e w rank. “(He) was an obvious choice for meritorious advancement. He blends an incredible work ethic with remarkable operational competence and deck plate leadership and uses that experience to mesh rotary wing training with current fleet practices for our SNAs. We’re very fortunate to have him as a part of the Vigilant Eagle team.� Kangas’ role as the command’s enlisted NATOPS instructor led to the safe completion of six annual NATOPS evaluation flights. In all, their in-flight support led to the designation of over 100 naval aviators. Additionally, he led a five-person team

as assistant command fitness leader to organize and conduct seven physical fitness assessment evolutions completing 364 individual tests. He assisted in organizing command events such as the command picnic, a Halloween party for families and the annual Christmas party. In his spare time, he dedicated 41 hours to the So Others May Live Foundation as director of fundraising. The amount raised was $17,500 for distribution to local charities. “Petty Officer Jonathan Kangas is an integral member of the HT-8 team and epitomizes the spirit of service to our community and the Navy. Excelling in his duties as a senior TH-57 crewchief, Petty Officer Kangas performed at the level of a tenured first class petty officer while at Helicopter Training Squadron 8 (HT-8) and was highly deserving of meritorious promotion to that rank,� his commanding officer, Cmdr. Steve Audelo, said.

Native American

November is and Alaska Native Heritage Month From Bureau of Indian Affairs U.S. Department of the Interior

For almost 100 years, Americans both Indian and non-Indian have urged that there be permanently designated by the nation a special place on the calendar to honor the contributions, achievements, sacrifices and cultural and historical legacy of the original inhabitants of what is now the United States and their descendants: the American Indian and Alaska Native people. The quest for a national honoring of Native Americans began in the early 20th century as a private effort. As far back as the late 1970s, Congress has enacted legislation and subsequent presidents have issued annual proclamations designating a day, a week or a month to celebrate and commemorate the nation’s American Indian and Alaska Native heritage. In 2009, Congress passed and the president signed legislation that established the Friday immediately following Thanksgiving Day of each year as “Native American Heritage Day.” Honoring and citizenship: early advocates After 1900, one of the earliest proponents of a day honoring American Indians was Dr. Arthur Caswell Parker, a Cattaraugus Seneca and the director of the Rochester Museum in New York (now the Rochester Museum of Arts and Sciences). Parker (Gawasco Waneh) was a noted anthropologist, historian and author whose great-uncle was Brig. Gen. Ely S. Parker, secretary to Gen. Ulysses S. Grant during the Civil War and the first American Indian to serve as commissioner of Indian Affairs in the Department of the Interior. Parker also served as the first president of the Society for American Archaeology (1935-36). Parker was a founder of a number of American Indian rights organizations, including the Society of American Indians (SAI) in 1911 and the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) in 1944, and advocated for American Indians to be given U.S. citizenship. He was successful in persuading the Boy Scouts of America to set aside a day for the “First Americans,” which they did from 1912 to 1915.

The first canoe ... In the American Pacific Northwest and Alaska’s Inside Passage, totem poles carved by Native Americans are frequently seen. Never an object of worship, they simply – and dramatically – tell stories for generations to remember. (Above) In Stanley Park, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, a totem pole called “Ga’akstalas” depicts many important figures in local native culture. Red Cedar-bark man, a survivor of the great flood, is shown making a gift to the people of the first canoe. Photo by Mike O’Connor In the spring of 1914, another Indian rights advocate, the Rev. Red Fox James, also known as Red Fox Skiukusha, whose tribal identity is undetermined, began a 4,000-mile trek on horseback to Washington, D.C., to petition the president for an “Indian Day.” The next year, again on horseback, he travelled state-to-state seeking gubernatorial support for

U.S. citizenship to be extended to American Indians. On Dec. 14, 1915, he presented to the White House the endorsements of 24 governors. In 1919, he petitioned the state of Washington to designate the fourth Saturday in September as an “Indian holiday.” Also in 1915, the Congress of the American Indian Association, meeting in Lawrence, Kan., di-

rected its president, the Rev. Sherman Coolidge, an Arapaho minister and one of the founders of the SAI, to call upon the nation to observe a day for American Indians. On Sept. 18, 1915, he issued a proclamation declaring the second Saturday of each May as “American Indian Day” and appealing for U.S. citizenship for American Indians. In 1924, Congress enacted the Indian Citizenship Act extending citizenship to all U.S.-born American Indians not already covered by treaty or other federal agreements that granted such status. The act was later amended to include Alaska Natives. State observances The first time an American Indian Day was formally designated in the United States may have been in 1916, when the governor of New York fixed the second Saturday in May for his state’s observance. Several states celebrated the fourth Friday in September as American Indian Day. In 1919, the Illinois State Legislature enacted a bill doing so. In Massachusetts, the governor issued a proclamation, in accordance with a 1935 law, naming the day that would become American Indian Day in any given year. In 1968, then California Gov. Ronald Reagan signed a resolution designating the fourth Friday in September as American Indian Day. In 1998, the California State Assembly enacted legislation creating Native American Day as an official state holiday. In 1989, the South Dakota State Legislature passed a bill proclaiming 1990 as the “Year of Reconciliation” between the state’s American Indian and white citizens. Pursuant to that act, then South Dakota Gov. George S. Mickelson designated Columbus Day as the state’s American Indian Day, thereby making it a state-sanctioned holiday. 1992 – The Year of the American Indian The 500th anniversary of the

arrival of Christopher Columbus in the Western Hemisphere in 1492 was the occasion for national and local celebrations. However, for native people it was an occasion they could neither fully embrace nor participate in. Congress acknowledged their concerns regarding the Columbus Quincentennial by enacting Senate Joint Resolution 217 (Pub. L. 102-188) which designated 1992 as the “Year of the American Indian.” It was signed by President George H.W. Bush Dec. 4, 1991. Pursuant to that act, President Bush issued March 2, 1992, Proclamation 6407 announcing 1992 as the “Year of the American Indian.” The American Indian response to the anniversary was marked by public protests. Yet, it also was seen by many in that community as a special, yearlong opportunity to hold public education events, commemorations of ancestral sacrifices and contributions to America, and celebrations for the survival of native peoples over five centuries. Federal observances In 1976, the United States’ bicentennial year, Congress passed a resolution authorizing then President Gerald Ford to proclaim a week in October as “Native American Awareness Week.” On Oct. 8, 1976, he issued his presidential proclamation doing so. Since then, Congress and the president have observed a day, a week or a month in honor of the American Indian and Alaska Native people. And while the proclamations do not set a national theme for the observance, they do allow each federal department and agency to develop their own ways of celebrating and honoring the nation’s Native American heritage. In 2015, President Barack Obama issued an Oct. 30 proclamation designating November 2015 as “National Native American Heritage Month” and Nov. 27, 2015, as “Native American Heritage Day.” Another proclamation is expected for 2016.

“Out of the Indian approach to life there came a great freedom, an intense and absorbing respect for life, enriching faith in a supreme power, and principles of truth, honesty, generosity, equity and brotherhood as a guide to mundane relations.” – Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Sioux

Jokes & Groaners The temple A tourist was traveling with a guide through one of the thickest jungles in South America, when he came across an ancient temple. The tourist was entranced by the temple and asked the guide for details. To this, the guide stated that archaeologists are carrying out excavations, and still finding great treasures. The tourist then queried how old the temple was. “This temple is 1,503 years old,” replied the guide. Impressed at this accurate dating, he inquired as to how he gave this precise figure. “Easy,” replied the guide, "the archaeologists said the temple was 1,500 years old and that was three years ago.”

Warm or cold state of mind A customer was bothering the waiter in a restaurant. First, he asked that the air conditioning be turned up because he was too hot, then he asked it be turned down cause he was too cold, and so on for about half an hour. Surprisingly, the waiter was very patient; he walked back and forth and never once got angry. So finally, a second customer asked him why he didn’t throw out the pest. “Oh, I really don’t care or mind,” said the waiter with a smile. “We don’t even have an air conditioner.”

NETPDC hosts CFC golf tournament By Ed Barker NETPDC Public Affairs

The Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) sponsored a “Florida Scramble” golf tournament benefitting the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), Oct. 14. at the A.C. Read Golf Course onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. The tournament included 14 teams for a total of 54 golfers, supporting this year’s CFC theme: “Show some love.” The event raised $1,372 for the 2016 CFC campaign. “Last year’s inaugural tournament has turned into a fun annual event dedicated to a great cause,” said Capt. Lee Newton, NETPDC commanding officer. “CFC helps many deserving organizations, and our contributions would not be possible without the dedication and coordination of our volunteers.” Teams for the tournament consisted of retirees, civilians, and active-duty military members

from area commands competing for prizes and awards. “Specialty” awards went to the most deserving players of The Ugliest Shot, The Most Sand Traps and The Most Trees Hit. The overall first-place-winning team was the “N6ers” from Naval Education Training Command and (NETC). Terry Lewis, supervisory IT specialist for the Naval Education and Training Command at Saufley Field, was a member of the winning N6ers team. “We always enjoy supporting tournaments like this that are for a good cause,” said Lewis. “The Florida Scramble is a great format, because everyone has to participate – you can’t just depend on your ‘ringer.’ The weather was also outstanding, and it all added up to a tremendous charity event.” The CFC Southeast Tri-State Region Director, Ron Denson, attended the tournament, participating as a volunteer. “This year’s Florida Panhandle CFC-2016, NAS Pensacola

Golf Tournament hosted by NETPDC was an outstanding success,” said Denson. “I spoke to several players who shared their personal stories with me about the difference CFC charities have made in their family members’ lives.” Denson added that over the

past four years, CFC has been making improvements and implementing stronger safeguards, ensuring CFC-approved charities maintain required accountability standards and certifying that their promotional activities are nondeceptive, with no misleading claims, and that contributions are

used for the promoted purposes of the charitable organizations. For information on CFC visit: https:// www. opm. gov/ combined- federal- campaign. For more information on NETPDTC visit: https://www. netc.navy.mil/netc/netpdc/Default.htm.

Det. 1 material savings program saving the Air Force $55,000 annually By Capt. Patrick D. Britton Commander, 359 TRS Det 1

During times of financial constraints, individual Air Force units have begun stepping up and developing innovative ways to make every dollar count at the lowest level. The 359th Training Squadron, Detachment 1 (Det. 1) is one of these such units. Det. 1 is a part of the Air Force’s Air

Education and Training Command (AETC) located onboard NAS Pensacola. Det. 1 is a geographically separated unit under the 359th TRS out of Eglin AFB, Fla. and is the Air Force’s only aircraft structural maintenance school. Det. 1 recently implemented a material savings program that saves the Air Force $55,000 annually. The new pro-

The Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival will feature performances at more than 25 venues.

Story, photo Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival

The 32nd annual Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival will present more than 200 nationally acclaimed songwriters at venues along Gulf Coast from Nov. 3-13. The event is based at the FloraBama Lounge astride the Florida-Alabama line, but performances are scheduled at more than 25 other venues. The festival is an opportunity for seasoned and aspiring songwriters and musicians to have their songs heard, and for the public to learn the stories behind the lyrics that only the song’s author can express. The festival is a perennial favorite for music lovers eager to hear songwriters not only perform but also discuss how and why

they wrote some of the hit songs. Most concerts are free to attend although a few venues may collect a cover charge. Scheduled venues include FloraBama, Flora-Bama Ole River Bar & Grill, Flora-Bama Yacht Club, Artworks Studio & Gallery, Buena Vista Coastal RV Resort, Big Beach Brewing Company, The Frog Pond, Gilbey’s, Ginny Lane, The Hot Spot Music & Grub, Hub Stacey’s at The Point, La Brisa, Legends Bar & Grille, Lillian’s Pizza, LuLu’s at Homeport Marina, New Malibu Lounge, Nolan’s, The Oar House, Perdido Beach Resort, Perdido Key Sports Bar, Pirate’s Cove, Rafters Restaurant & Sports Bar, Seville Quarter, Shipps Harbor Grill, Tacky Jacks – Gulf Shores, Tin Top Restau-

rant, Villagio Grille and Worship on the Water. The 11-day festival is the oldest and largest of its kind and has been referred to as the largest gathering of songwriters at one time anywhere in the world. It has been called one of the Top 20 Events by the Southeast Tourism Society. This year’s festival features Grammy award winning hit songwriters, legends of American music and up and coming stars of tomorrow. Visit the official website at www.fbisf.com for a list of artists, their bios and a schedule of performances. For more information contact Festival Coordinator Andy Hanyes at andy@fbisf.com or Marketing Director Jenifer Surface at jenifer@florabama. com or visit the website at www.fbisf.com.

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.
