Spring ahead, fall back ... Look for more daylight in the morning: Nov. 3 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.

FFSC launches Command Representative Program By Kristy Malone Fleet and Family Support Center
Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) NAS Pensacola has announced the launch of a Command Representative Program to serve all branches at NASP, which will better connect commands, service members and their families with the resources available at FFSC. The program will assign a FFSC representative to each command in order to provide a single point of contact who can coordinate services for any training, referral, or resource needs. The representative provides a personal link between commands and FFSC in order to improve the flow of information; to encourage the use of FFSC programs and services by commands, service members and family members; and to customize services to meet the needs of the commands. Command leadership should expect to be contacted by their FFSC representatives in the coming weeks and to have ongoing contact. The Command Representative Program was ini-
tiated at FFSC Norfolk in Virginia in 1988 to better serve the needs of deploying commands, and has since been implemented at installations across the country and overseas. This program has had a positive impact on active duty personnel and their families by increasing awareness of FFSC programs and enhancing deployment planning, preparation and readiness. FFSC’s mission is to improve fleet readiness and increase retention by providing quality of life programs for service members and their families that address and resolve the challenges inherent to the military lifestyle. Some of the services and resources offered include life skills education; personal financial management; new parent support; and transition assistance family advocacy; individual, couples and children’s counseling; sexual assault prevention and response; and victim advocates for sexual assault and domestic violence. Many of these services are confidential, and all are free of charge to

Blues Angel Music gets ‘Tanked’ Story, photo by Ed Barker Special to Gosport
Retired fighter pilot Jim Destafney faces an interesting challenge. Getting your music store noticed in increasingly crowded retail venues and social media can be a daunting, but his staff at Blues Angel Music in Pensacola hope to go to the top of the queue as they’re featured on Animal Planet’s series “Tanked” today, Nov. 1. The Blues Angel Music episode features the construction and installation of a custom aquarium that’s also a working drum set. Destafney’s wife Nan, a former Navy nurse, contacted the “Tanked” producers last year with the idea, and after months of planning and negotiation, the eight-drum kit was installed at the store Sept. 17-18 with the TV production crew rolling the whole time. “In the beginning, my main interest wasn’t the ‘Tanked’ television show, it was getting an aquarium in our store,” she said. “But after realizing the investment involved, and convincing Yamaha to also donate a $5,000 drum set as the tank models, we realized that we had to be on the show.” Wayde King and Brett Raymer, stars of “Tanked” and CEO/COO of Acrylic Tank
Local Pensacola music store Blues Angel Music on Pace Boulevard will be featured today, Nov. 1, on the Animal Planet television series “Tanked” with a unique aquarium that’s also a working drum set.

Manufacturing, were at the store for the installation and were hands-on the entire time. As veterans of 76 episodes of “Tanked,” they know that a customthemed aquarium is not only a very cool focal point, but can seriously add to a business’ bottom line. “It will bring people into the store, which will hopefully translate into sales, but not only that, it’s a talk piece,” said Raymer. “They can say ‘I have the first drum set aquarium, I’m one of the top 100 music stores in the country, we have a oneof-a-kind drum set by Acrylic Tank Man-
ufacturing featured on ‘Tanked.’ ” Although not large by aquarium standards, the drum set holds 100 gallons of salt water and 20 gallons of fresh water. The combination of the acrylic drums and variable-color lighting is easily the first thing that catches your eye as you enter the store. For musicians, not only are the drums an amazing and realistic display, but almost unbelieveably, the drum set is fully functional as well. Destafney said that a working kit was mandatory. “The drum set had to be truly func-

joined the U.S. Air Force at age 16. “It has been a great ride,” he said. “I am talking 20, 30, 40 years after we have served.” He explained that many VUMS hid their true ages for many years because they feared repercussions if their underage service was discovered. “To this day, I have children in their 50s and they are not quite sure how old I am. And when I tell a story, I have trouble because I can’t remember how old I was at the time.” Stover, who joined the Coast Guard when he was 14 with a forged birth certificate, wanted to make it easier for underage veterans to come forward when he started the organization in 1991. He obtained policy letters from all military branches stating that underage veterans and military retirees have nothing to fear for enlisting under-

Daniels, 85, of Ono Island, Ala., recalled the trouble he had when he was trying to enlist at age 15 in Birmingham, Ala. “Seventy years ago this fall, I was busy trying to join the Navy,” he said. “But they kept throwing me out.” Eventually, he was succeeded and he is proud of his 41-year career in the Navy. Several VUMS members also were special guests at the Heroes Among Us speakers series organized by the Marine Corps League J.R. Spears Detachment Oct. 25 at Veterans Memorial Park. After the presentation, an autographed copy of the VUMS book “America’s Youngest Warriors” was awarded to PFC Jesse Brown, who is stationed at NASP Corry Station.

Gulf Coast Enterprisesʼ National Disability Employment Awareness Month picnic celebrates 20 years ... Gulf Coast Enterprises (GCE) held its third annual National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) Employee Appreciation Picnic onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola Oct. 25 for the more than 300 GCE employees that work onboard NASP. Base leadership as well as many local politicians were in attendance, including Mayor of Pensacola Ashton Hayward. GCE was celebrating its 20th anniversary of providing food service, custodial and administrative support to the base. “Today it’s a celebration,” said GCE President Richard Gilmartin. “And what’s most important (about our people) is that most of them are people who have significant disabilities, who might not otherwise have been given the chance to show that they’re able to work, able to be productive and able to serve the heroes of our country: the people who serve in our military branches.” The good feeling was reciprocal: Navy personnel – students from NATTC – volunteered to serve the food at the event, and door prizes were given away to employees, including bicycles, electronics and sports gear.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White 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,

Child support guidelines: What parents need to know By Lt. Keleigh Anderson Legal assistance attorney, Naval Air Station Jacksonville
Raising children can be the most challenging yet most rewarding part of a parent’s life. When parents do not remain together, raising those children can be even more of a challenge. How do we make sure that our children are financially supported after we no longer live as a family unit? Whether you are the custodial parent who wants to collect child support or the noncustodial parent who has to provide child support, knowing your rights and how to go about enforcing them is essential. Who is eligible for child support? Only custodial parents are eligible to receive child support payments. So what exactly is a custodial parent? The custodial parent is the primary caregiver, providing the daily needs of the child. If each parent spends relatively equal time with the child, it is the parent who spends slightly more time with the child. That being said, there may be other legal and practical hurdles to overcome before a custodial parent can receive child support. For example, the other parent will have to be located and/or paternity will have to be established. How much is enough? Some people are under the false impression that child support only needs to cover the very basics for a child, such as food and clothing. Wrong. Child support should include a variety of anticipated expenses, including but not limited to school fees, entertainment, medical ex-
penses and extracurricular activities. So, you ask, how do two parents who cannot get along come to an agreement on what these expenses should be? You do not have to. Federal law mandates that a state’s child support guidelines apply to any court action or administrative proceeding in which there is an order determining child support. This could include a separation, divorce, paternity or modification proceeding, just to name a few. This means that the amount of child support paid is based on guidelines defined by each state, not on what you as the parents think is the right amount. What are child support guidelines? Child support guidelines are standards used to figure out the support needed for a child and the amount a parent has to pay. Guidelines help to make sure that support amounts are fair. Every state has guidelines, but those guidelines may vary by state. In general, all of the guidelines are based on the parents’ incomes, child’s living expenses and health care, child care costs and standard needs for the children. Often, as is the case in Florida, the guidelines calculate the amount of child support as a percentage of the parents’ income and factor in the number of minor children being supported. There may be special circumstances where support amounts can deviate from the guidelines. Some states actually allow their judges a lot of leeway in setting the amount, as long as the general state guidelines are followed. Others have very strict guidelines that provide the judges with very little discretion. The factors usually include the
needs of the child – including health insurance, education, day care, and special needs; and the income and needs of the custodial parent. The paying parent’s ability to pay can also come into play. Some states, however, will impute income on a parent with no income by expecting them to pay child support even if he/she is unemployed, filing for bankruptcy or homeless. What is a child support order? A child support order tells the parents specifically what they must do and how much they must pay to support their children, according to the guidelines. Some states limit the support to age 18 or when the child graduates high school. Some states even require college expenses to be included. What if the noncustodial parent does not pay? Enforcing child support orders means getting the parent to do what the order says. If a noncustodial parent is working, the state’s law may require that the employer deduct support payments from the parent’s paycheck. In some states, businesses must report all new and rehired employees to the child support enforcement agency in their state so it is difficult for a parent to hide their new job. When noncustodial parents owe past-due support, the state’s child support enforcement program may be able to intercept tax refunds, lottery winnings, unemployment compensation and other payments, and may work with banks and credit unions to deduct money from a bank account. They may have liens placed against their property
such as houses, mobile homes, land, cars, boats and other valuable items until the support is paid. If you fail to make child support payments according to a court order, child support enforcement agencies in many states will suspend your driver’s license or any professional, occupational or recreational license. The judge may also find you in contempt of court and order you to pay a large sum of money or go to jail or an arrest warrant may be issued. Can the amount ever change? Once a child support order or agreement is in place, the payment amount may be modified under certain situations, usually a substantial change in circumstances. This may include a parent’s promotion or raise, or the child needing orthodontic work or new school expenses. Some states review support orders every few years automatically in an effort to keep the support consistent with the parents’ income and the respective state’s support guidelines. Bottom line: Whether you are the custodial parent who wants to collect child support or the noncustodial parent who has to provide support, knowing your rights and how to go about enforcing them is essential.

Officials gathered Oct. 8 to celebrate the grand reopening of the renovated exercise facility at NASP Corry Station.
Story, photos from Morale, Welfare and Recreation
The renovated Family Fitness Center at NASP Corry Station can accommodate 20 infants and toddlers ages 0-3, and 20 preschoolers ages 4-9, while parents have a choice of working out on 16 cardio pieces and 13 weight-training pieces. Parents also can participate in classes in a designated group fitness space with other moms and dads while enjoying the convenience of a direct view of their little ones through the clear wall and large TV monitors for extra viewing. For added convenience, there is a room for stroller parking and a calming room for breast feeding. The Family Fitness Center is in Bldg. 3712 on Chiefs Way at Corry Station. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The facility is closed on Friday and Sunday. The renovated center has increased programming and classes to include 13 group fitness classes per week and monthly special events. The family fitness programming started in early 2008 with one class (stroller strut) held outside near the seawall twice a week. The class grew in size and by late 2008 it was up to four classes a week with more than 60 adults and children. In March 2008,

Michelle Hewitt and Dennexx McClendon went on a networking trip to discover what other bases in Southeast Region were doing in support of the family fitness initiative. In September 2008 the first dedicated Family Fitness Center opened in a renovated space in the existing at Corry Wellness Center that could accommodate 10 to 12 children in a drop zone area. The space was outfitted with nine pieces of cardio and 13 new life fitness strength pieces, as well as a small education room, and it served an av-
erage of 350 patrons monthly. Demand for the area led to two expansions, quickly using all available space in the facility. In a cooperative effort between NAS Pensacola command, the NASP NavFac facilities department and the Center for Information Dominance Command, the Corry Station Crosswinds space was identified as a solution. MWR maintenance completed all renovations to the flooring, bathrooms, reception desks and children’s area resulting in a facility with Double doors lead into the entryway at the newly renovated at the Family Fitness twice the square footage.

The National Naval Aviation Museum has a new exhibit that features a full-scale mock-up of Northrop Grumman’s X-47B unmanned combat air system. The X-47B was originally scheduled to be part of the museum’s 50th anniversary celebra-
tion which had to be postponed due to the government shutdown. “Collectively, the museum’s aircraft collection represents the amazing technological journey that has occurred in naval aviation for more than 100 years,” said retired Navy Capt. Robert Rasmussen, the director of the museum. “This X-47B mock-up represents one of the latest
chapters in aircraft development and will give visitors the opportunity to contrast unmanned platforms of today with the Navy’s first unmanned vehicle to be employed in combat, the sole surviving example of the World War II TDR drone also on display in the museum.” For more information, go to www.NavalAviationMuseum.org.

Navy awards contract for ex-Forrestal scrapping From Naval Sea Systems Command Office of Corporate Communication
ASHINGTON (NNS) – The Navy awarded a $0.01 delivery order Oct. 22 for dismantling and recycling ex-USS Forrestal (AVT 59). The delivery order was made under an indefinitedelivery, indefinite-quantity contract to All Star Metals for the towing, dismantling and recycling of conventionally powered aircraft carriers stricken from the Naval Vessel Register. The price of the delivery order reflects the net price proposed by All Star Metals, which considered the estimated proceeds from the sale of the scrap metal to be generated from dismantling.
Witness to history: fire onboard USS Forrestal
In May 2012, the Navy solicited proposals for the award of up to three contracts for the dismantling and recycling of inactive conventionally-powered aircraft carriers. All Star Metals is the first of three successful offerors to receive its facility security clearance, which is required prior to contract award. After the initial award of one carrier to each successful offeror, the Navy has the capability of scrapping additional conventionally-powered

Forrestal was decommissioned Sept. 11, 1993, after more than 38 years of service. On June 16, 1999, the Navy announced the ship would be available for donation

However, no viable applications were received and the vessel was removed from donation hold in December 2003 and redesignated for disposal.

NASWF’s HT-18 changes command By Ens. Emily Hegarty NASWF PAO
Lt. Col. Robert White, the out-going commanding officer of Helicopter Training Squadron 18 (HT-18), frequently peppered his speech with good-natured jokes, prompting the “ba dumtis” of stings played by the Corry Station band and laughter from attendees throughout the Oct. 18 change of command ceremony. During his speech, White welcomed the crowd to an event which he proclaimed marked a “day of celebration for what this squadron has already accomplished and will in the future.” The HT-18 ceremony closes out what is seemingly a fall change of command “season,” as the past month has seen Training Squadron Six and Training Squadron 28 recently rotating commanding officers as well. Training Wing Five Commodore Capt. James
Fisher served as the guest speaker for the event, and called White a “true professional and a straight shooter,” whose leadership style was embodied by the phrase “taking care of warriors.” “(White) built on the established tradition of excellence at HT-18, and accepted nothing less than the gold standard from the entire team – all officers, instructor pilots as well as student aviators, enlisted aircrew as well as civilians,” Fisher said. Fisher explained that White’s “steady leadership resulted in the continued run of excellence at HT18,” and that excellence was recognized both inside and outside of the squadron. HT-18 flew more than 12,000 sorties under White’s leadership, comprising more than 1,234,000 Class A mishapfree flight hours, and resulting in the completion of more than 200 advanced rotary students, all while boasting the most ef-
ficient time to train of all advanced rotary squadrons. In recognition of the squadron’s outstanding safety record during White’s tenure, HT-18 earned the 2012 CNO Safety Award; the Granpaw Pettibone Award, which is presented annually to an organization that contributed the most toward aviation safety awareness through media publication; and the John H. Towers Flight Safety Award, which recognizes the training squadron which has achieved an outstanding record in its mission-oriented flight safety programs. Fisher also touched on White’s contributions to Training Wing Five, in which he was a key player on “a host of TH-57 issues related to the new maintenance contract and the Naval Aviation Readiness Group.” After recounting White’s achievements and contributions for his service with the “Vigilant Ea-

gles,” Fisher presented White with the Meritorious Service Medal. He then opened the podium to White for his official remarks. White offered thanks to many in attendance, including his fellow squadron commanders as well as the instructor pilots, enlisted aircrew, civilians and students of HT-18. “(You) didn’t just instruct students on skills necessary to fly the aircraft – you instilled skills necessary to be officers and leaders. Thank you for your leadership and passion. Without those two things, you can’t do anything great in life,” he said to his instructor pilots, while also emphasizing the impact of the aircrewmen. “You did (your jobs) well every day, and without fanfare. I cannot think of a better example to our young officers on what it means to serve others.” He also thanked Cmdr. Kevin Pickard, HT-18’s inLt. Col.

since day one” to assume the lead and will “take (HT-18) to the next chapter. “I know (that after I leave this squadron) nothing’s going to change, if anything this squadron will become better. It’s been very personally and professionally rewarding to be a part of this squadron. I wouldn’t have changed a thing.” Pickard next took to the podium to praise White’s achievements and thank him for his guidance. “You have taken an already exceptional squadron to new heights, and challenged me to seek constant improvement as your executive officer. Thank you to everyone for being here and to the entire Vigilant Eagles team, I look forward to serving as your CO.” Prior to his time at HT18, Pickard served as military affairs officer in the Office of Counter-Proliferation Initiatives at the U.S. Department of State, where he was in charge of several government
diplomatic and operational activities directed toward the interdiction of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and related materials. For his service, he was awarded the Department of State’s Superior Honor Award in 2011. In March 2012, he reported to HT-18.

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 nonIndian 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. 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
Native American pride on a large scale: Crazy Horse Memorial ... In the Black Hills of South Dakota, the world’s largest stone carving is taking place. The mission of the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation is to protect and preserve the culture, tradition and living heritage of Native Americans. The project began in 1929 when Lakota elder Henry Standing Bear recruited Polish-American sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski, who had worked on Mount Rushmore, to honor Lakota warrior Crazy Horse with a sculpture made from an entire mountain. “My fellow chiefs and I would like the white man to know that the red man has great heroes, too,” Standing Bear told Ziolkowski.

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
“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 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., directed 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
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 2012, President Barack Obama issued a Nov. 1 proclamation designating November 2012 as “National Native American Heritage Month” and Nov. 23, 2012, as “Native American Heritage Day.” Another proclamation is expected for 2013.

Aviation Rescue Swimmer School graduates NATO student Story, photo from Lt. Brett Batz “A” Pool Assistant Division Officer
n Oct. 11, Lt. Iliya Stoychev, an officer with the Bulgarian Navy, graduated from Aviation Rescue Swimmer School (ARSS) at Naval Air Station Pensacola. Stoychev, a diver in the Bulgarian Navy, enrolled in the rescue swimmer and aircrew candidate programs to study the curriculum the United States Navy uses to train aircrew and rescue swimmers. Stoychev hopes to apply this knowledge to the training programs of the armed forces of Bulgaria, a fellow NATO member country. Stoychev is the first Bulgarian officer to grad-
uate from the Aviation Enlisted Aircrew Training School (AEATS) program in the past five years, and the third sailor from Bulgaria to complete the training. Rescue Swimmer School and Naval Aircrew Candidate School are both components of AEATS, which is responsible for training the future aircrew and rescue swimmers of the fleet. AEATS trains approximately five international students per year.
While a member ARSS Class 13-18, Stoychev became a recognized leader in the class as well as socializing with his fellow classmates outside the class establishing close friendships with the other RSS candidates. Stoychev brought his experience as a diver into the class, sharing that experience and integrating it into the classroom. “Lt. Stoychev was grateful to have the opportunity to train with us,

learning valuable techniques he was able to take back with him to Bul-
garia,” said AWS1 Juan Caban, Stoychev’s team leader in ARSS.
Stoychev is a native of Varna – Bulgaria’s largest port on the Black Sea and a popular vacation spot. He attended the Bulgarian Naval Academy from 1998 to 2003 and his last assignment before coming to the United Sates was as senior diving officer on the Auxiliary Rescue Ship (ARS) Proteo.

Exhibit on the War of 1812 spotlights role of Navy and Marines From West Florida Public Library
The phrase “trial by fire” took on a very literal meaning for the United States in 1812 when it found itself in a second war with Great Britain, the military superpower of the day. By fighting to a stalemate against superior odds, the United States secured a lasting peace with Britain and established itself as a truly independent nation. In celebration of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, the West Florida Public Library is presenting “A Nation Forged by War,” a traveling mini-exhibit of the National Museum of the United States Navy. The exhibition, which opened Oct. 1, will be on display until the end of No-
vember in the lobby of the main library at 239 North Spring St. “A Nation Forged by War” celebrates America’s “Second Revolutionary War.” It focuses on the prominent roles played by the United States Navy, Marines, and Revenue Cutter Service in protecting the young American republic between 1812 and 1815. The exhibit consists of six fullcolor panels providing historical highlights, and visitors with smart phones can access additional content by scanning the QR code on each panel. To learn more about the Navy’s contributions to American history, visit the National Museum of the United States Navy online at www.history.navy.mil/ museum.
The exhibit is on loan to the library through the sponsorship of the local Old Spanish Trail Chapter of the United States Daughters of 1812. Membership in the organization is open to women age 18 or older who can offer proof that they are lineal descendants of an ancestor who, during the period of 1784-1815, rendered civil, military, or naval service to the country, rendered material aid to the U.S. Army or Navy, or who participated in the Lewis and Clark Expedition. More information is available online at http://USDaughters1812.org. For more information about the West Florida Public Library and the resources and programs it offers, go to http://MyWFPL.com.

Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away. The SafeHelpline provides live crisis support and information by trained staff. Call (877) 995-5247; go to www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247 CONUS; (202) 470-5546 OCONUS (may be additional charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows a victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services and safety interventions. To access an unrestricted report, the victim can report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), SARC, and his/her CO shall commence an investigation. Restricted reporting allows a confidential report, which does not trigger command nor law enforcement notification and the victim can have a SAPR VA, and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim can disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care provider and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 VA, call 449-9231/2. To contact the SARC during working hours, call 452-5990, ext. 0; during and after working hours, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
