The most effective way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year the influenza virus is responsible for anywhere from 3,000-49,000 deaths in America. During the typical flu season, 90 percent of these deaths occur in people 65 years or older; however, the flu has the ability to make a healthy person very ill. The CDC is recommending that everyone 6 months or older get a flu vaccine this year. This year, Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) is doing its part to make the flu vaccine accessible and convenient by hosting a “drive-through” flu vaccine

The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will host the squadron’s change of command ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum on Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola at 2 p.m. Nov. 4. Cmdr. Tom Frosch will relieve Capt. Greg McWherter as Blue Angel commanding officer/flight leader. Frosch joined the Blue Angels team in September. He was recently the commanding officer of Strike Fighter Squadron 146 (VFA-146), the “Blue Diamonds,” where he also served as executive officer. Frosch’s previous commands include VFA-106, the “Gladiators,” and VFA87, the “Golden Warriors,” NAS Cecil Field; U.S. Naval Test Pilot School and VX-23, “The Salty Dogs,” NAS Patuxent River, Md.; VFA-192, the “World Famous Golden Dragons,” NAS Atsugi, Japan; deployments with

between the design team, the construction team and the owner – the Navy – was considered so important as to be a factor in the criteria for the award. “I have to give credit to the entire team, and I mean that sincerely,” Crawford said. “Working with everybody at the Navy, the subcontractors, Greenhut Construction; we all came together on an extremely difficult project. Many of you will remember the disarray this building was in when we began this effort. It was old and had a significant number of things that had to be corrected just so we could begin to utilize it … We’re extremely proud and just wanted to come out and show you the presentation that was made to the magazine.” The challenge facing the engineers was to make a 70-plus year old building into a modern military headquarters – all while preserving its historic integrity. Bldg. 1500 sits atop a hill which has been inhabited since Pensacola’s early settlement. Its grounds are a rich archaeological reserve, with artifacts ranging from Colonial pottery to cannon having been discovered nearby. Bldg. 1500’s original exterior walls are constructed of terra cotta, finished with cement. Since engineers couldn’t cover these historic walls, they were made stronger from the inside with a “wall inside the wall” and techniques joining steel tracks to the concrete frame. New windows for the building also presented special problems. The builders had to meet with historic preservation requirements, as well as hurricane wind load, anti-terrorism and force protection requirements. A steel plate and frame system, installed on the interior, was used to anchor the special glass while keeping the original look. A “progressive collapse” requirement for the building took some additional engineering finesse. In the end, a carbon fiber reinforcement wrap was created to cover the concrete frame, which took up little space while adding considerable strength. “This had all the excitement of being able to dig through all the old documents, try to figure out the best way to repurpose something … it was extremely fulfilling,” Crawford said. NASP’s commanding officer valued the inside look at what had gone into the headquarters. “I can’t tell you how impressed I was; it’s just a phenomenal job,” Plummer said. “In the 26 years I’ve been working in the Navy, this has to be the nicest facility, by a wide margin. To see some of the scope of what you all did, I really appreciate it.” In all, the renovations – part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) – were completed at a cost of $11.2 million, or $161 per square foot, according to BD+C magazine’s October issue, which features the award story.

Don’t tell me when to plug in my Christmas tree By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

As I put my skeletons back in the closet (literally) and threw the gnat-infested jack-o’lanterns in the garbage, I was seized by the desire to dig out my ceramic light-up Christmas tree and plug it in. What? Start decorating for the winter holidays before Thanksgiving? Have I been brainwashed by the evil retail industry? Isn’t it gauche and simpleminded to succumb to the influence of premature instore displays and television advertising? But, but … I really want to plug my ceramic Christmas tree in and see the magical glow of its tiny plastic lights. I don’t care if the children are still rationing their Halloween candy. I don’t care if I haven’t planned my Thanksgiving side dishes yet. Christmas is coming soon enough, so should I wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate just because social commentators say that we are being conditioned by commercialism? Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for toning down the Christmas shopping frenzy, which has become replete with obligation and thoughtlessness, but what’s so bad about decorating early? I say not a thing, and I’ve come up with a list of reasons why: First: The sights. Let’s face it — Thanksgiving dé cor leaves a little something to be desired.

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, the mother of three, has been a military spouse for 19 years (and running). Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. Molinari and her family are currently stationed at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, Fla. This season’s dull browns and golds benefit from a little cheering up with Christmassy cranberry and green. And who doesn’t like a twinkling light? Unless you have an

LED lighted cornucopia or plug in pilgrims with moving parts, you are going to need a few strands of lights and a velvety poinsettia to brighten up your Thanksgiving anyway. Second: The tastes. While serving egg nog in November may be taking things too far, turkey and all the trimmings are traditional for both occasions in many households; dishes can be mixed and mingled while respecting the individual holiday customs. Moreover, I’d bet my Cuisinart that your family won’t protest if you start baking cookies now. Sure, you might gain your holiday weight a little early, but those bulky Christmas sweaters are a great disguise. And besides, the prolonged disgust you will have with your plumpness will give added motivation to stick to your annual New Year’s resolution to lose 10 pounds. Third: The smells. Indian corn and gourds don’t have much aroma, so unless you are willing to wait to smell the roasting Thanksgiving turkey, I suggest baking a little gingerbread or dropping a few cinnamon sticks into your hot toddy. If the tree farms haven’t opened for business, why not light a pine scented candle to awaken the spirit of Christmas? Fourth: The sounds. As far as I am aware, there is not a catchy compact disc compilation of Thanksgiving songs by Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Neil

Sedaka or Barbara Streisand. The only traditional Thanksgiving song known by most Americans is “Over the River and Through the Woods,” a song adapted from a poem by Lydia Maria Child in 1844. What most Americans don’t know is that the song actually contains six stanzas of which only the first two are widely known. In order to get to the word “Thanksgiving,” one would need to know the last four stanzas which include virtually unknown phrases such as “Trot fast, my dapple gray.” Most of us start out robustly singing the first two stanzas, then trail off mumbling. Why suffer that when you can all sing a rousing round of “Jingle Bells?” Other than the sizzle of the roasting turkey juices, I think we can all agree that the Thanksgiving sounds could use a little supplementing. So slip in a good Christmas CD and tap your toes while you cut the veggies for the relish tray. When it really boils down to it, Thanksgiving and Christmas have become intermingled in such a way that they can no longer be completely separated. So I say to heck with it. The real reason we won’t climb into our musty attics to retrieve our Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving is because someone has said that doing so would mean we were being indoctrinated by the commercial advertising media.

Phooey! Not to bring Independence Day into this too, but I say hang your stockings and bake your Russian teacakes when you damned well please. Besides, would it be so bad to get your shopping done a little early and actually be able to relax when December rolls around? Today, I plugged my 1972 ceramic tree in and let out a little gasp as the tiny pegs glowed in all the colors of the rainbow. I stared a while, as my brain tapped into a bank of dusty but fond memories of holidays past. “Oh Christmas Tree” popped into my head and I began to hum. Call it gauche, simpleminded, brainwashed or indoctrinated. I call it fun.

NASP small arms range back in business Story, photos by Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

NAS Pensacola’s small arms range reopened Oct. 23, following what NASP Range Operations Officer Victor Jordan called a “berm replenishment.” The range’s berm – another term for a bullet backstop – had its lead removed and was refilled with dirt and sod. The range had been closed since June. Soil washing away from the berm, likely during the 12-14 inches of rainfall the area experienced that month, and excessive lead in the backstop made the refurbishment necessary. An 18-wheeler truck filled to capacity carried away the salvaged bullet lead, which must be removed from the environment. Recycled lead has value and can be used for many purposes, including re-casting into bullets. The range’s berm was last refurbished in 2004. The NASP small arms range, located inside the perimeter of Forrest Sherman Field, is available to and used by all branches of the military for various levels of firearms training. NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Plummer, along with NavFac SE NASP Public Works Department (PWD) Public Works Officer Cmdr. Steve Zimmerman and NASP Deputy Security Director Paul Wright were the first to practice pistol shooting at the newly refurbished facility. They fired Beretta M9 9mm pistols. After the informal target session, onlookers were surprised – some in awe – at Zimmerman’s high scores. Plummer enjoyed the shooting session as well and picked up some tips on technique from Jordan. “I grew up shooting guns, it’s a blast,” Plummer said. “And the course looks great, too.” “We expect to see you back out here, then,” Jordan said.

Flight students on fam flight participate in rescue From NASWF PAO

Two flight students taking a familiarization flight as part of the 23rd Annual Fleet Fly-In at Naval Air Station Whiting Field got a little more than they bargained for when the helicopter transitioned to a search and rescue mission Oct. 24. Coast Guard student aviators Lt. j.g. Ian Campbell and Lt. j.g. Timothy Olah from Training Air Wing Five were getting a first-hand look at how an operational helicopter flies and feels as compared to the training helicopters they use at NAS Whiting Field, when AMT3 Brandon Hauhe noticed a small boat spinning out of control. The aircraft’s pilot, Lt. Jeff Daigle maneuvered the helo in for a closer look, and when no operator was visible within the boat, immediately initiated a search pattern to seek the driver.

The MH-65 Dolphin helicopter the crew was flying is traditionally used for drug interdiction operations and wasn’t truly equipped for search and rescue missions. However, the limitations didn’t inhibit the team. “We pride ourselves on our ability to roll with the punches and deal with the situation as it presents itself,” Daigle said. “We were happy we were able to improve his situation. It’s appreciated when we get something out of the ordinary every now and then.” The boater was discovered in the water a few hundred yards away. The crew radioed for additional assistance, but they could tell the person was fatigued. After a short discussion between Daigle and Hauhe to determine what assets were available to them, they lowered an inflatable raft down to the swimmer, who reached and pulled himself into the raft without further incident. The incident occurred in Santa Rosa County around

2:40 p.m. Local fire and rescue workers took one of their boats out and returned the man to shore where he refused medical treatment. One of the fleet fly-in’s main purposes is to provide flight students in training a chance to see, feel, touch and fly in fleet aircraft. For Campbell and Olah, who were just looking forward to seeing a little of what Coast Guard pilots do day to day, they got a better view than expected. “It was definitely exciting. I didn’t expect to be part of a search and rescue mission,” Campbell said. “I think I got a lot more out than I expected going in.” Campbell already has served two years aboard a Coast Guard cutter, but still came away impressed with the attitude of the helicopter’s crew. “This wasn’t their mission, but the way they stayed poised and helped any way they could,” he said. “It was really cool to be a part of.”

HT-18, HT-8 members tackle Wilderness Challenge From NASWF PAO

Officers from Helicopter Training Squadron 18 and Helicopter Training Squadron Eight teamed up to tackle the Fourth Annual Military Wilderness Challenge in Fayetteville, W.Va., recently. The four-person squad successfully completed the grueling two-day event. Cmdr. John Quillinan, Lt. Cmdr. Thad Smith and Marine Capt. Genevieve Studer from HT-18, joined Marine Capt. Joe Heintz from HT-8 to form the team. The unit struggled through the five-event ordeal claiming second place overall and first place Marine Corps. HT-18 has put together a team all four years of the event. The first year, the squadron commanding officer asked someone to put together a team from some of the serious runners from HT-18. Quillinan was one of the four team members. The team placed third in the Marine division that first year and has continued to place each year. Two years ago, the team placed second in the Marine division, and last year they took first Marine division and first overall. This year, the foursome competed well though all the events, but two flat tires in the mountain bike portion of the competition cost them vital time and

derailed a chance at repeating as champions. However, the adversity showed them the great character of the competing teams as one a team of helicopter air crewmen let them use their spare tire to complete that segment of the challenge. It is that kind of interaction with fellow service members that makes the games such an enjoyable event for the team, said Studer. “The events were a great way to meet people and experience connections you might have within the fleet,” she stated. The five-event challenge consists of an 8K mountain run, 14-mile whitewater race, 12mile mountain bike race, sevenmile duckie race (inflatable two-person kayaks) and 14-mile mountain hike. Teams must consist of four people, one of whom must be a woman. Times are conducted based off of team finishes and everyone on the team must be within 100 feet of each other at all times. Teamwork is key to the challenges as harnesses are provided to each team to help faster members of the team support those who are slower or fatigued. “The teamwork was amazing. Everything really worked together,” Studer said of her teammates. “They were great at evaluating how we could make it through faster. It

Quillinan concurs that continuity is incredibly helpful in competing in the challenge. “It’s real helpful to know what to expect,” he stated. “We stay together as a team until someone can’t make the event.” There is no mistaking the grueling intensity of the competition itself. The events are diffi-

Each member of the team works out throughout the year to keep in shape, with only periodic workouts in the various events to prepare. “Training for next year’s challenge began the day after we came back,” Quillinan said. But the ultimate goal of the challenge is to have fun. The team captains all run an wet, muddy and cold obstacle course

“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 From Bureau of Indian Affairs U.S. Department of the Interior


or 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. 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., 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 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, 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, 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 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 2010 and in 2011, President Barack Obama issued proclamations designating November as “National Native American Heritage Month.”

Color Me ‘Plenty’

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.”

You can help the USO grant Veterans Day wishes From the USO

The USO (United Services Organizations) and partners will recognize Veterans Day with Grant a Wish for Our Heroes, an initiative that will give Americans an opportunity to thank those who serve in the armed forces by granting wishes for troops and their families. “Grant a Wish for Our Heroes is a call to action for anyone who wants to take a moment and give back to our troops and military families in the ways they’ve told us helps the most. USO offers concrete ways, big and small, to show our troops that Americans appreciate their service and sacrifice,” said Sloan Gibson, president and CEO of the USO. “We value our partners’ commitment to help USO grant these wishes, delivering what’s needed to our men and women in uniform at home and abroad on

Veterans Day and every day.” For years, troops and families have been telling the USO what programs and services they need the most through a comprehensive annual survey, “Tell USO,” and the USO has responded. USO programs help ease the stress of deployment for both troops and their loved ones. They also provide the comprehensive support servicemen and women need when they return home. And many help wounded, ill and

injured troops as they recover and re-enter their new lives as veterans. These are a few of the programs and initiatives the USO is asking Americans to support this Veterans Day: • Holiday boxes for deployed troops – Many deployed troops spend holidays away from their families. The USO helps bring a touch of home to troops with boxes containing decorations games, snacks, movies and themed items. All designed to bring holiday cheer those serving in the most remote corners of the world. • Connecting troops to families back home – Missing the birth of a child may seem hard to imagine, but it’s a reality for many of our troops overseas. The USO has made it possible for some military dads to witness the birth of their child, via Skype. During November, the USO will begin helping dads-to-be send some special items

home to their newborn and mom, so they can be a part of those first precious weeks of their child’s life. • USO Warrior & Family Center at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at Bethesda — Nov. 7, the USO will break ground on its second 20,000-square-foot building that will support healing heroes and their families battling invisible wounds like traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress. The first center at Fort Belvoir is scheduled to open in 2013 and will support healing heroes recovering from physical wounds. The two centers will include movie theaters, classrooms, sports lounges, business centers, healing gardens and more.
