Spring ahead, fall back ... Look for more daylight in the morning: Nov. 2 at 2 a.m. marks the official end of daylight saving time; clocks should be pushed back one hour as the nation reverts to standard time. Even though you may be gaining an hour’s sleep, experts advise going to bed at the same time: it may take a few days to adjust to a new sleep schedule, as your own internal clock is reset. It’s also a good time to check or change the batteries in your home’s smoke detector or carbon monoxide alarm.

The Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will close the 2014 season at their annual Homecoming Air Show aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola Nov. 7-9. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the air station, this year’s show days will include a special night show with various acts lighting up the night sky with pyrotechnics Nov. 7 at 4 p.m. (gates open at 3 p.m.) and two full show days Nov. 8-9 at 9 a.m. (gates open at 8 a.m.). “This event is our way of thanking you for your continued support throughout the year and offers an excellent opportunity for you to tour the flight line and get a closeup look at some of the people, aircraft and capabilities of the most powerful military in the world,” NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins said. Prior to the world-famous Blue Angels F/A 18 Hornet performances, the Blues’ C-130 Hercules transport known as “Fat
Albert” will demonstrate to the crowd its short field take-off and low level passes at 2 p.m., followed by the Blues. Tentatively scheduled for all three days will be aerobatics by performers such as John Klatt in his “Screamin’ Sasquatch’ Jet Waco and David Martin will pilot his Brietling CAP 232. Roger Buis returns with air show favorite “Otto the Helicopter” and Matt Younkin will be flying aerobatics in his Beech 18. Don’t miss the Shockwave Jet Truck, driven by Neal Darnell – a memorable attraction with its flames, fast speeds and power. American icons the Budweiser Clydesdales will be on display Nov. 8. The Clydesdales were first introduced to the public in April 1933 and have been seen by audiences all over the world. Visitors may also stroll around more than 50 static display aircraft, from early aviation vintage planes to state-of-the-art modern fighters and more. There will also be a “Kids Zone” for children.

CNIC holds change of command By Sandra Niedzwiecki Navy Installations Command Public Affairs
WASHINGTON (NNS) – More than 500 military and civilian personnel attended the change of command ceremony for Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) Oct. 24 at Admiral Leutze Park on the Washington Navy Yard. Vice Adm. Dixon R. Smith relieved Vice Adm. William D. French as the fifth commander since the command’s inception in 2003. The ceremony included full gun salutes, musical performances by the Navy’s Ceremonial Band, march on of the troops and parading of the colors by the Navy’s Ceremonial Guard, and an a cappella rendition of the national anthem sung by Naomi Howell, one of CNIC’s civilian employees. A special contribution to the ceremony was the participation of side boys by former submarine Sailors with whom French served during his first command, USS Spadefish (SSN 668). “From these men,” said French, “I’ve learned the trade of going to sea in submarines. Gentlemen, thank you for finding your full dress blues, putting them all together and being here today.” Guest speaker for the ceremony was Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Jonathan Greenert. “I’m honored to be here to take some time to speak about a person who has had a long and distinguished career, who has dedicated the last two and a half years to CNIC, and who is an extraordinary leader,” said Greenert. “Bill French has sustained the fleet, enabled the fighter and supported the family. He has revolutionized the Navy shore enterprise.” Responsible for 52,000 military and civilian personnel, 11 regions and 69 installations worldwide, French received the Defense Distinguished Service Medal for his accomplishments including the attainment of the Homeport Ashore initiative, the development of governance and oversight for the Overseas Drinking Water program, and efforts to align CNIC to support fleet requirements. The ceremony also recognized French’s retirement after more than three decades of exemplary service to the Navy. “Today I want to thank many people,” said French. “One of the many thankful parts of

this job is you get the opportunity to work with so many different people both inside the Navy, fellow services and support organizations that take care of our Sailors and families outside the Navy.” French thanked his family, fellow shipmates and mentors throughout his career, and welcomed Smith to CNIC recognizing the talent and commitment of Smith’s new staff. Prior to the ceremony, Smith was promoted to vice admiral to serve as Commander, Navy Installations Command. He is the first former installation commanding officer to lead CNIC. Smith shared his enthusiasm about taking on greater responsibility to lead the Navy’s shore enterprise. “CNO, thank you for your kind words,” he said. “I’m honored and deeply humbled by your faith and confidence for this opportunity for continued service to our Navy and our nation.” A native of Connecticut, Smith was commissioned through the Naval Academy in 1983. He was designated as a surface warfare officer in 1985 and then went on to serve aboard five surface combatants and held five shore assignments. Later in Smith’s
career he went on to lead shore installations as the commander for three regions including Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific, Navy Region Hawaii, Navy Region Southwest, and most recently, Region Mid-Atlantic prior to arriving in Washington, D.C. Smith thanked French for a smooth transition and emphasized his commitment to service through action. “I’m happy to report that as I assume this watch, that thanks to Vice Admiral Bill French, CNIC is on course, focused on fully supporting CNOs tenets of warfighting first, operating forward, and being ready,” said Smith. “CNIC will maintain that course.” Smith offered that he is excited to join the CNIC family. “I consider it a privilege to lead and serve you,” he said. “To those who serve, the only reason we at CNIC exist is to support you. You have my promise and commitment to do just that.” Leading a world-class enterprise, CNIC is responsible for managing shore installation support for the Navy’s fleet, fighter and family under the Chief of Naval Operations.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.
The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,
student population is made up of enlisted personnel attending apprentice, or “A” schools, where they learn the skills and knowledge required to perform as initial-level technicians in the fleet. The center also provides airman apprenticeship training, personal financial management and shipboard aircraft firefighting training. Advanced schools provide higherlevel technical knowledge for senior petty officers and technical training for officers in aviation fuels, carrier air traffic control center operations, amphibious air traffic control center operations, aircraft launch and recovery equipment and shipboard aircraft fire fighting. Additionally, NATTC supports the fleet by providing team training to ships personnel during their pre-deployment work-ups, to ensure that shipboard personnel have the proficiency required to take their ship on deployment, after a prolonged period in port.

Suicide awareness training can make a difference By Bobby L. Hinton NASP CREDO facilitator
he buzz about the death of Robin Williams, the famous comic actor, has faded into the pages of news history, and the month dedicated to bringing national attention to the issue of suicide has passed. These two events managed to ring the bell for thousands that suffer in silence because of suicidal thoughts, but now they have become white noise in the background. That empty darkness has left many struggling with thoughts of suicide. The fight against this disease is relentless, and every day in this country another victim is seduced by this vicious enemy of humanity. Regardless, of the reason why a person would commit suicide, those left behind are always haunted with the same questions. The blank looks into the distance, the intense feeling of loss, the longing for a special touch; all are snatched away in a moment and sealed away for an eternity. The feelings, the questions and yearnings should not be experienced again amongst our family members – one is too

many. In Florida, 2,892 persons committed suicide in 2013. From that number, 1,136 were between the ages of 20-54, and thousands have been impacted by the loss of these persons that were in so much pain that they felt that death was their only option. All these persons may have had around them someone that loved them, people that wanted them and people that have positive memories about them. Now, whatever problems those persons were experiencing can’t be resolved and won’t be solved. Research has shown that 95 percent of suicides can be stopped, by friends and family members that have been given awareness training. The ability to help someone that is loved to save their own life is the gift all of us should be willing to give.
Help is available • If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 911. • You can also get assistance immediately by calling the Military Crisis Line at 1 (800) 273-8255, option 1, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. • For additional information on suicide prevention, go to www.suicide.navy.mil.
During Suicide Awareness Month in September, 286 military and civilian personnel went through the Livingworks, safeTALK (Suicide Awareness for Everyone) Training that is offered by the Chaplain’s Religious Enrichment Development Operation (CREDO) through the command chaplain’s office at Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). The three-hour course helps to dispel feelings of uncertainty on the subject and replace it with a natural, almost organic
approach to talking about suicide with anyone in the participants’ sphere of influence. The training is conducted in the All Faiths Chapel. Similar to any church gathering, the participants are told to fill the first few pews. The participants move reluctantly, but quickly discover that the training is different, insightful, fun and not death by PowerPoint. The subject is very heavy, but the approach encourages a new look at an old problem. During the 2013-2014 fiscal
year, nearly 700 military and civilian personnel have attended safeTALK training since the class started in early spring of 2014. Our goal for the 20142015 fiscal year is to train more than 2,000 military personnel and civilians and our goal for next September is to train 600 military and civilian personnel. As more members of our family become safeTALK trained, the more opportunities others will have to start life a fresh another day. The horrible reality of suicide is that it robs the person suffering from the disease of choices because the only choice the victim is considering is death. Help us to restore a voice and choices back to those who think they have no choices. Let us help someone see another sunrise, hug another child, kiss another love one and drink another cup of coffee. If you or anyone from your command is interested in attending the next safeTALK training, contact the command chaplain’s office (452-2341, ext. 5) to get training dates and register to attend the workshop. Bobby Hinton is a CREDO facilitator at NAS Pensacola. For more information on any CREDO program, contact the chaplain’s office at 452-2341.

NRSE Wounded Warrior–Safe Harbor program helps Sailors and Coast Guardsmen in need By MC2(SW/AW/EXW) Stacy D. Laseter Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs
ACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Navy Wounded Warrior (NWW) – Safe Harbor program, is the Department of the Navy’s support program for critically wounded, injured or ill Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, and with more than 3,000 served, it is a vital care network for those in need. The program’s objective is to resolve persistent non-medical concerns and arrange enrollees for transition back to active duty or civilian life so the service members can focus on getting well. They do this by facilitating assistance during three phases: recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration.
“The recovery phase is typically the hospitalization phase,” said Lt. Daniel J. Simonds, the program manager for Navy Region Southeast Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor. “Next is the rehabilitation phase, when a service member is out of the hospital and learning how to navigate through their in-
jury, illness or wound. Finally, the reintegration phase is if the service member is found unfit for continued naval service we help with the transition into the civilian life, or if they are found fit, we help reintegrate them back into the Navy or Coast Guard.” The program currently has more than 1,640 en-
rollees, with more than 1,500 additional service members who have received assistance though they did not qualify for enrollment. “If a Sailor or Coast Guardsmen is considered severely wounded, ill or injured by a physician, then their parent command will submit information on their behalf and we receive the notification that there is a service member in our region who needs assistance,” Simonds said. “From there an enrollment committee makes the determination on whether they will be accepted into the program. Regardless of the decision, they can and will receive assistance from us.” NWW Safe Harbor offers an extensive variety of services, including assist-
ing with employment and education opportunities, connecting them to benefits, hosting adaptive athletics events, and family and mental health resources. The program was formally established in 2008 and since its foundation, its mission has extended beyond offering support to service members wounded in combat. Currently, of its
enrolled service members, half are injured and half are ill. The injuries may have been acquired while on liberty, training or on shipboard accidents. For more information about NWW and how to enroll, call 1 (855)-NAVY WWP/1 (855) 628-9997, or visit http://safeharbor. navylive.dodlive.mil or email safe harbor @navy.mil.
German Navy Surgeon General visits NASP’s Navy Medicine Operational Training Center Story, photo by MC1 Bruce Cummins NMETC Public Affairs
The German Navy’s senior medical officer visited the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery’s (BuMed) premier training facility for operational medicine and aviation survival training, Oct. 21. Rear Adm. Hans Wolfgang von der Heide-Kattwinkel, surgeon general of the German Navy, visited Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC), receiving a brief on the command’s scope and responsibilities before touring the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) and Naval Survival Training Institute (NSTI), both components of NMOTC. Von der Heide-Kattwinkel, in his current position since 2012, previously served as the German Navy’s deputy surgeon general for six years, but has maintained a significant tie to Pensacola; specifically NAMI, for more than two decades, having undergone flight surgeon training here in 1991. “(This visit) is to enhance cooperation because we want to send our students on a regular basis here because the Navy flight surgeon training is one of the best in the world,” von der Heide-Kattwinkel said. “To get the flight training, the officer's training, the medical training is unique and no nation in the world has something like this.” The Naval Aerospace Medical Institute is the U.S. Navy’s singular facility for training U.S. Navy and

ficer Capt. Kris Belland. “NMOTC and Navy Medicine have long maintained a stellar relationship with our allied partners,” he said. “The NAMI flight surgeon program is internationally recognized,
and hosting a former graduate of the program who has risen to the top commissioned rank in his respective service is an honor for us.” The German Navy (Marine) is part of the Federal Defense Forces of Germany (Bundeswehr Streitkrafte), which has seen German forces deployed in most North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) or European Union theaters except Iraq. NAMI is a component of the Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC), the recognized global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training, which reports to Navy Medicine Education and Training Command (NMETC). NMETC manages Navy Medicine’s formal enlisted and officer education and training programs, medical operational training for medical and medical support personnel deploying worldwide, and training that prepares aviators and flight crews to survive in land and water mishaps. NAMI, NMOTC and NMETC are all part of the Navy Medicine team, a global health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide high-quality health care to eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ships, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

Retired Navy T-39 training jet continues service Story, photo by Ed Barker NETC PAO
ike many retired Navy veterans that have served decades on active duty only to return to serving their country in another role, one of the last T-39 Sabreliner jets to fly at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola will help instruct students at George Stone Technical Center (GSTC). Instead of being flown to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base “boneyard” and languishing in the Arizona desert in lay-up, the airplane will become an integral part of the new aviation maintenance program at GSTC. “We are ecstatic about our partnership with the Navy and are very excited to get this jet,” said T.J. Rollins, principal at George Stone. “It was flying just a few months ago training Navy navigators, so it’s a fully capable airplane for our new students to practice on as they work toward their certifications and licenses from the Federal Aviation Administration.” The Navy-GSTC partnership happened through a chance meeting with the Escambia County School District’s curriculum coordinator for Workforce Education, Steve Harrell, and a maintenance technician working at NAS. “When I found out he worked on airplanes at the base, I mentioned that we were starting a
new aviation maintenance program at George Stone,” said Harrell. “He mentioned that they were retiring all of the T-39s, and that I should ask the Navy if we could have one for our new program.” John Appicelli, assistant officer in charge for the Chief of Naval Air Training detachment at NASP helped turn the suggestion into reality. He said that it was an unusual request, but it had merit. “It took a lot of coordination between the Navy and government agencies, but we thought it was a great idea and would be well worth the effort,” said Appicelli. “We started the process in February and it took until now to work out all the details, including moving the jet to the school. As the aircraft left the base, ownership transferred to George Stone. I’m glad to see that it’s going to a good home and will continue to help launch aviation careers.” Whisler Aviation from Se-

ward, Neb., handled the transport of the T-39 to GTSC. The wing and fuselage were separated at NAS, trucked to George Stone and reassembled at the school Oct. 20 with the help of Deep South Cranes. “The aircraft industry definitely needs qualified airframe and powerplant mechanics as there is a shortage of A and Ps across America,” said Greg Whisler, president of Whisler Aviation. “In addition to transporting planes, we also have a repair facility that maintains aircraft, and we are always in need of certified A and P mechanics.” The George Stone aircraft maintenance program will be
available for new and current GSTC students and approval is anticipated for funding by the GI Bill and other veteran’s educational programs. According to Keith Boring, program manager for the Navy’s Credentials Program Office, active-duty and reserve Navy and Marine Corps personnel will be eligible for funding for the certification testing portion of the aviation maintenance program through the Navy’s Credentialing Online Program (Navy COOL). “We don’t fund for the training portion of the program, as many active-duty and reserve service members qualify as a result of their military schools and
on-the-job training,” said Boring. “Navy COOL does fund, however, for airframe, powerplant and combination testing for the necessary certification exams at qualified technical schools like George Stone.” According to Harrell and Rollins, the goal of the aviation maintenance program is to help develop a local workforce that can fill the future aerospace jobs coming through VT Mobile Aerospace Engineering, Airbus and other regional employers. The GSTC aviation maintenance program is currently in the process of receiving FAA approval and certification and is scheduled to start the first class at GSTC in August of 2015.

Navarre HS Student 2 Student club recognized Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Robert Provencher NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
The crowd at the Santa Rosa County School Board meeting Oct. 23 was unusually colorful, with three students from Navarre High School in the auditorium sporting purple shirts. Adam Morriss, Christina Macninley and Destiny Hernandez, two members and the president of Navarre High School’s Student 2 Student club, together with club sponsor Nadja Robles, were there to receive awards of recognition from NAS Whiting Field and the Military Child Education Coalition. A military child will change schools every 2.9 years and attend an average of nine schools between kindergarten and 12th grade. The difficulties of being a military child, from the constant change of environment to the absence of one or both parents during deployment, can cause one to feel alone and misunderstood when dealing with problems they think no one else can understand. That is where the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) comes in. Established and supported by the Department of Defense, the MCEC seeks to ease the burdens unique to military children. They tackle this challenge by raising awareness in the greater community, by providing resources such as Military Family Life Counsellors to the schools, and by creating programs for Left to right: NASWF CO Capt.

Drink up – Whiting’s water is award-winning By Ens. Kim Mahoney NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
Feel free to drink from the water fountains on base, because Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) has once again won the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Northwest District Plant Operations Excellence Award. This is the third consecutive year that NASWF has taken home the prize, which recog-
nizes the hard work of the Public Works Department’s water management team. The competition involves more than just great water. Criteria to be eligible for the award included detailed recordkeeping, good customer relations, staff and safety training and outstanding operation/maintenance practices. NASWF competed against
106 facilities in Northwest Florida in the small community category (facilities that serve less than 3,300 people), and the installation had to maintain stellar operations in all areas to continue to earn the award. “You can’t have any notices of violation (NoVs), there are multiple regulations and best-management practices that are re-
viewed, to win the award you must have a perfect regulatory record for that year,” said Jon Croci, NASWF drinking water manager. NASWF was able to retain the award by going above and beyond the standard. Water conservation was a large factor, cutting our water usage by 15.1 percent in the past year and 40 percent overall since 2011. An emergency response plan that is updated annually was another

NETPDTC celebrates Navy’s 239th Birthday; See page B2 Spotlight
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
“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

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 2013, President Barack Obama issued an Oct. 31 proclamation designating November 2013 as “National Native American Heritage Month” and Nov. 29, 2013, as “Native American Heritage Day.” Another proclamation is expected for 2014.
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.”

NETPDTC celebrates Navy’s 239th Birthday By Katrina Gergely NETPDTC Public Affairs
he Naval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center (NETPDTC) celebrated the Navy’s 239th birthday with a cake cutting hosted by NETPDTC’s Welfare and Recreation Committee Oct. 10. NETPDTC’s Commanding Officer, Capt. Janet Lomax, opened the event with words of appreciation to the more than 75 Saufley Field civilians and sailors attending the celebration. “Everyone here, Sailors and civilians alike, play a vital role in supporting our country and I’m proud to celebrate the birth of our Navy with all of you,” said Lomax. The United States Navy was founded Oct. 13, 1775, in Philadelphia, Pa., by the Continental Congress, which authorized the outfitting of two frigates with carriage guns and crews of 80 men each. Their mission was to intercept munitions vessels that were supplying the British Army in North America. A Navy tradition was honored at the conclusion of the event, the oldest civilian Michael Ow, financial technician, and the youngest sailor, MMCS Danny Chronister, joined Lomax in cutting the
Navy’s birthday cake. “It is an honor to participate in and celebrate this traditional event. It’s important to remember where we began as we strive to support the Navy’s future goals and challenges,” said Chronister. Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt, Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), officially authorized Oct. 13 as the Navy’s birthday in 1972. From Chief of Naval Operations
Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert released a birthday message to the fleet to celebrate the occasion. “Happy 239th birthday, Navy. On Oct. 13, it is important that we reflect on who we are and where we started. It is a day which marks the cornerstone of our proud service beginnings. “As you operate forward, and stand the watch around the globe, you em-

body the characteristics of the patriots that went before us. Our greatest traditions live within the foundation of their courage and perseverance. On this day, we pause and remember the proud heritage and service of previous shipmates. Likewise, we will always remember those veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Navy and our nation. “Moving forward, we will continue
to use the three tenets: Warfighting First, Operate Forward, Be Ready. We will be ready today, while also building the Navy to win tomorrow. “From Oct. 13, 1775, until today, history has proven time and again that a powerful Navy is vital to ensuring the prosperity of our economy and the safety of our citizens. This is the legacy we celebrate today. Happy birthday, shipmates.”

Songwriters put on a show From Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival
The Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival will celebrate its 30th birthday in style, presenting a memorable lineup of Grammy-winning performers and up-and-coming hitmakers Nov. 6-16 at venues in Perdido Key, Pensacola and along the Gulf Coast. 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 world’s greatest hits. The event is based at FloraBama Lounge astride the Florida-Alabama line, but more than 200 songwriters will perform at numerous venues. This year, the festival will include a tribute to the late Larry Butler of Pensacola, who wrote songs and produced music for Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers, Waylon Jennings and many others. Butler was a big reason that many country musicians travel between Nashville and the FloraBama, a legendary beach bar. “Remembering Larry Butler” is scheduled for Nov. 6 at Pensacola Little Theater. Doors will open at 6:30, and the show is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Performers will include Jim McBride, Mike McGuire and Chris “Lucas” Roach. Tickets are $20 per person. Festival performers will include such noted songwriters as Austin Church, whose songs have been recorded by Jimmy Buffett and Lyle Lovett; and
Scotty Emerick, who writes for and performs with Toby Keith, on such hits as “Get Drunk and Be Somebody,” “A Little Too Late,” and “I Love this Bar.” The writers cover several eras of country music. Dean Dillon, who has written 50 songs performed by the legendary George Strait, is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Jamey Johnson, who writes for himself and others, has won Country Music Association Awards as well as performed
with Kid Rock and Willie Nelson. Another featured artist will be singer Johnny Lee, whose “Lookin For Love” in the movie “Urban Cowboy” became a country classic. Most shows are free; a few venues charge a cover fee. The festival is named after the late Frank Brown, who was night watchman at the Flora-Bama for 28 years before retiring at age 91.
