Spring forward, fall back ... Look for more daylight in the morning: Nov. 4 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 is also a good time to check or change the batteries in your home’s smoke detectors or carbon monoxide alarms.

Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Ambulatory Care and Behavioral Health Care Accreditation and Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) Certification. The Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting optional standards demonstrating a commitment to patient-centered care. PCMH Certification is a special add-on option for Joint Com-
mission-accredited ambulatory health care organizations. NHP underwent a rigorous onsite survey in July 2018. During the review, a team of Joint Commission expert surveyors with expertise in ambulatory health care, behavioral health and primary care evaluated compliance with standards related to a variety of areas including coordination of care, monitoring for procedures that involve use of sedation or anesthesia, infection prevention and control, management of medications and patient education and training. The Joint Commission’s Ambulatory Health Care
Accreditation Program encourages high-quality patient care in all types of freestanding ambulatory care facilities. Today, the Ambulatory Health Care Accreditation Program serves 2,100 ambulatory care providers with more than 8,500 sites of care, which serve more than 83 million patients annually. Organizations accredited in behavior health provide treatment and services within a variety of settings across the care continuum for individuals who have mental health, addiction, eating disorder, intellectual/developmental disability and/ or child-welfare related needs.

CIWT welcomes new command master chief By Glenn Sircy Center for Information Warfare Training
The Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) welcomed Command Master Chief (CMDCM) Igor F. Vargas as its new command master chief (CMC) Oct. 30. Vargas relieved CIWT’s CMDCM Mike Bates, who will retire with 24 years of dedicated and faithful service at the end of November. Prior to CIWT, Vargas was the CMC of Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station Bahrain. CMCs serve as command-level senior enlisted leaders and have a significant role in every aspect of command-wide readiness and mission accomplishment. They report directly to the commanding officer and work closely with the executive officer in the formulation and implementation of all policies concerning the morale, welfare, job satisfaction, discipline, utilization and training of enlisted personnel. Additionally, they are directly responsible for Chiefs Mess’ professional development. “Command Master Chief Vargas brings a combined 27 years of extensive and proven Navy leadership experience to our entire CIWT domain,” CIWT’s Commanding Officer Capt. Nick Andrews said. “His addition strengthens our future in preparing information warriors to fight and win.” NHP from page 1 care organizations with the processes needed to improve patient access to care.

The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help organizations measure, assess and improve performance. “We are very proud to receive accreditation and certification from The Joint Commission,” Capt. Amy Branstetter, commanding officer, Naval Hospital Pensacola said. “Our staff from across the organization continue to work together to develop and implement approaches and strategies that will improve the quality and safety of the care we provide for our patients.”
NETPDC from page 1 impressed by the learning opportunities and strong turnout in support of diversity. “One key benefit of the diversity represented by our staff is that it enables us to approach problems from a broad spectrum of viewpoints,” Brooks said. “NETPDC’s diversity fuels innovation and supports the ability to adapt to change. Embracing diversity is key to both our present and future as a military organization and as a nation.” Myeisha Murray, NETPDC Equal Opportunity Committee chairman coordinated the event. Murray, a Navy veteran, was a Boatswain’s Mate aboard the USS Carter Hall (LSD 50). She enjoyed experiencing deployments around the world, visiting various cultures. “I enjoy meeting new people from different backgrounds and learning their culture and traditions,” Murray said. “My love for this began when I was in the military and I am glad that I still get to experience that working as a civilian in the Navy workforce. Here at NETPDC, we observe a single Diversity Day instead of individual special emphasis days because of the broader audience it attracts and greater learning opportunities. NETPDC consists of staff from many nationalities, and each has their own story, talents and background to share.” For Lt.j.g. Manuel Jean-Paul Perez, this was his first exposure to a Diversity Day event. “I was particularly impressed by the Persons with Disabilities booth and how so many highranking government officials did not let their challenges hold them back from success,” Perez said. “Diversity Day illustrated to me how different points of view allow you to see things and contribute in a different manner, with each person doing their part.” NETPDC’s mission is to provide products and services that enable and enhance education, training, career development and personnel advancement throughout the Navy. Primary elements of the command include the Navy Advancement Center (NAC), Voluntary Education (VOLED) Department and the Resources Management Department.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer – Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer – Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher biplane 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 one of the
Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 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, 314 North Spring St., Suite A, Pensacola, Fla. 32501, in the interest of military and ci-
specialist. He led 52 IWTC Corry Station staff members in the delivery of 60,486 hours of instruction through 44 course convenes. In his role as a CCMM, a position typically reserved for a chief petty officer, Payne led five Sailors in the revision and combination of the AN/SLQ(V)3 and AN/SLQ-32(V)4 courses, and provided guidance through 420 hours of curriculum revision. His efforts reduced the amount of time students spent awaiting instruction and increased the amount of newly qualified AN/ SLQ-32(V)4 technicians going to the fleet. In addition to his instructor duties, Payne serves as his command’s CPR training coordina-
vilian personnel and their families aboard the Naval Air Station Pensacola, Saufley Field and Corry Station.

Shake ’n Bake: Pork chop envy By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
t was another gloomy winter afternoon in our working-class English village. Ever since we’d been stationed at JAC Molesworth in the flat Cambridgeshire countryside known as “The Fens,” I’d found myself counting the minutes until my husband, Francis, got home from work. At that latitude, the sun set around four o’clock, leaving me with nothing to do but pop in a Barney video for our toddler – it was the 90s after all – and contemplate dinner. I wandered nonchalantly to the pantry expecting to see the usual line up of canned vegetables, dried noodles and jarred pickles. But there it was, staring at me from between the peanut butter and salsa with smug indignation. It had belonged to the woman who had come before me. She had bought it, presumably, for a cozy dinner with the man who was now my husband. It was her box of Shake ’n Bake.
How to submit a commentary
Michelle was Francis’ old girlfriend. Her Shake ’n Bake had, along with her gawd-awful dining room chairs and etched wine glasses, mingled with our joint marital property. After we married, I moved in with Francis, and then we moved together three more times. Somehow, the Shake ’n Bake had survived. At first, I had thought the crumb mixture was Francis’. But then I’d remembered that when I met him, his diet consisted of baloney sandwiches, cereal and take out. The Shake ’n Bake must’ve been Michelle’s. I had put up with the chairs and glasses out of necessity – we
About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers, including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat a nd p ot a t o e s of l i fe.c o m . needed all the hand-me-downs we could get back in those early days – but I didn’t need this lousy box of Shake ’n Bake. I didn’t use tawdry cooking shortcuts. It was cheap, just like Michelle with her frizzy red hair, overdone make-up and Boy George hats. I wanted rid of this relic of Francis’ past life, once
and for all. The vacuum sealed pouch of pork chop coating may not have expired, but I had sentenced it to death. I grabbed the offending box from the shelf and headed for the rubbish bin. But wait, I thought. Why not use this as a teaching moment? The mixture seemed surprisingly fresh for being four years old. I followed the package instructions, throwing meat into the bag with the pouch ingredients, and laying the coated pieces out on a cookie sheet. When Francis arrived home, our “Michelle Memorial Dinner” was ready. While Francis changed out of his uniform, I eagerly anticipated his reaction to the meal. I envisioned the disappointment that would most certainly appear on his face as he bit into the cheapened chop. I would ask innocently, “Do you like it, Honey? I made it with that old box of crumb coating. Wasn’t it … oh, what’s her name again… Michelle’s Shake ’n Bake?” Surely he would spit the bite into his napkin and declare the meal a culinary embarrassment. He would confess that I was a much better cook than Michelle. That I was the love of his life and Michelle was a mistake.
“Smells good,” Francis said as I doled pork, green beans and potatoes onto his plate. He carved a particularly large bite of pork, plunged it into his potatoes and opened wide. I watched intently for a grimace, a groan, a gag. “Mmm,” Francis mumbled, shoveling forkfuls into his mouth. I waited patiently for my opportunity to blame Michelle for his inevitable disgust. “This is delicious, hon,” Francis said, spearing a second chop. I nibbled a bite myself, and had to concede that he was right. The Shake ’n Bake wasn’t half bad after all. I realized that I was the only culinary embarrassment in our kitchen that night. My insecurities had driven me to kill an innocent box of bread crumbs in effigy. The Shake ’n Bake hadn’t been a threat to my marriage any more than Michelle had been. I was being silly. I confessed my “Michelle Memorial Dinner” plot, and we both laughed hard at my ridiculousness. I raised a glass to Michelle, giving credit where credit is due, and promised to make her signature recipe again. After all, it was’t a mistake, it was just Shake ’n Bake.

DoN releases business operations plan to further reforms From the Office of the Navy Chief of Information
ASHINGTON (NNS) – The Department of the Navy (DoN) released its business operations plan Oct. 24, establishing the framework for the department’s continuing business reform agenda. “The Department of the Navy Business Operations Plan for Fiscal Years 2019 – 2021” represents a strategic shift for the department, from oversight to leadership in ensuring that the department’s business operations effectively and efficiently achieve its mission to man, train, and equip Navy and Marine Corps forces for global operations. Through greater accountability, more agile processes and improved management of business operations, the plan will enable greater efficiencies that allow the department to reallocate resources from business operations to readiness and recapitalize our naval forces for the future. “As we look forward to the future, we must continue this momentum by leveraging every resource, expert, leading practice and efficiency we can find – from all sources, private and public – to think anew about our business operating
model,” Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer said in the plan’s opening message. “The National Defense Strategy and National Defense Business Operations Plan drive our agenda, and this Business Operations Plan will guide our Department by providing a vision for the future, and charting a clear course for how to get there.” The Department of the Navy Business Operations Plan aligns to the three lines of effort expressed in the National Defense Strategy (NDS): Rebuild Military Readiness as We Build a More Lethal Joint Force, Strengthen Our Alliances & Attract New Partners, and Reform the Department Business Practices for Greater Performance and Affordability, as well as to the nine objectives defined in the Fiscal Year 2018-2022 National Defense Business Operations Plan (NDBOP): • Restore military readiness to build a more lethal force.

• Lay the foundation for future readiness through recapitalization, innovation and modernization. • Enhance information technology and cybersecurity capabilities. • Ensure the best intelligence, counterintelligence, and security support to DoD operations. • Implement initiatives to recruit and retain the best total force to bolster capabilities and readiness. • Reform the security cooperation enterprise. • Improve and strengthen business operations through a move to DoD-enterprise or shared services; reduce administrative and regulatory burden. • Optimize organizational
structures. • Undergo an audit, and improve the quality of budgetary and financial information that is most valuable in managing the DoD. The Under Secretary of the Navy, Thomas B. Modly will lead the implementation of the business operations plan in his role as the Chief Management Officer (CMO) for the Department of the Navy. “America’s security relies on the success of our U.S. Navy and Marine Corps team,” Modly said in a message in the business operations plan. “Our Sailors and Marines represent the greatest expeditionary force the world has ever seen, operating forward every day to
shape and defend our national interests. Yet, as the National Defense Strategy reminds us, the U.S. military has no preordained right to success or victory. We must now move with a sense of urgency to improve how we manage the Department in order to continually reinvest into the improved readiness and modernization of our force. While doing so, we will create a more agile and accountable organization that not only responds rapidly and with precision, but also anticipates future threats and opportunities.” The Department of the Navy Business Operations Plan is available at www.navy.mil/ DONBOP.
New Navy Medicine clinic opens in Gulfport By MC1 Brannon Deugan Naval Hospital Pensacola Public Affairs
GULFPORT, Miss. (NNS) – A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Oct. 19 for the new Naval Branch Health Clinic (NBHC) Gulfport onboard Naval Construction Battalion Center. The new 58,000 square foot clinic will provide patient-centered care for active duty service members, retirees and their families in a modern and safe facility conducive to the optimum health care experience. “This is an amazing opportunity for our staff and patients to have this beautiful patient-centered care facility open in Gulfport,” Capt. Amy Branstetter, commanding officer, Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) said. “The new clinic offers a state-of-the-art environment for our highly skilled staff to provide outstanding care to our operational forces, their families and retirees in the community.” Gulfport is one of 10 branch clinics assigned to NHP, and the new clinic was specifically designed to support the Medical Home Port Team concept
used throughout Navy Medicine. The Medical Home Port process is a multidisciplinary approach that delivers patient-centered care and improves access to care for patients. “The new clinic incorporates several services that were previously dispersed throughout the base such as mental health, physical therapy and Families Over Coming Under Stress (FOCUS),” Cmdr. Venancio Maysonet, officer-incharge, NBHC Gulfport said. “The most significant impact of the new clinic is technology.” Maysonet explained two examples of the clinics new technology as a new kiosk system in the pharmacy and a new radiology system in the dental clinic. The kiosk is a ticketing system that will aid in gauging patient wait times as well as determining the adequate staffing models to better serve the community. The new radiology system is an important feature of the dental clinic that has one x-ray unit shared between two rooms through a wall. This allows for more effective use of technicians and resources while minimizing a patients total time for care by eliminating the
moving of a patient between rooms. The Fleet Center Medical Home (FCMH) will also share space within the new clinic. The FCMH provides care to active duty service members assigned to one of the Seabee battalions which are staffed with their own health care professionals. “All staff will have full access to all services within one roof to minimize transit time and provide increased access and collaboration amongst services and providers,” Maysonet said. Also located within the new clinic will be the Families FOCUS office which provides resilience training to military children, families and couples. It teaches practical skills to help families and couples overcome common challenges related to a military life. It helps build on current strengths and teach new strategies to enhance communication and problem solving, goal setting and creating a shared family story. “Having FOCUS collocated with all other services increases our ability to provide top notch support to the active duty service member and their families within the spectrum of care,” Maysonet
said. “This concept of care allows us to provide vital referral and follow up care to our beneficiaries as well as providing a full directory of care from active duty to the individual family member before, during and after deployments.” The clinic provides care for more than 6,000 enrolled beneficiaries and provides occupational health care to more than 6,000 civilian employees onboard Naval Construction Battalion Center and the local area. Services provided at the clinic include primary care using the Medical Home Port Team process, audiology, dental, immunizations, laboratory, preventive medicine, substance abuse rehab, mental health, physical therapy, pharmacy and radiology. Established in 1826, Naval Hospital Pensacola’s mission is to provide patent centered superior quality health care to those it is privileged to serve. The command is comprised of the main hospital and 10 branch health clinics across five states.

Navy Wounded Warriors demonstrate athletic prowess at the 2018 Invictus Games in Australia
Team USA’s retired HM2 Emmanuel Gonzalez (center) shoots a bow during the archery competition at the 2018 Invictus Games, an international adaptive multi-sport event Oct. 25 in Sydney, Australia. Navy and Coast Guard athletes with Team USA are enrolled in the Navy’s Wounded Warrior Program that provides non-medical support for more than 3,100 wounded warriors and their families.
Story, photo By PO2 Kyle Malloy Navy Wounded Warrior Safe Harbor Public Affairs SYDNEY (NNS) – Months of training toward healing have paid off for 14 Navy wounded warriors representing the nation and Team USA at the 2018 Invictus Games, an international adaptive multi-sport event currently being held in Sydney, Australia.
The Navy athletes are able to compete in the Invictus Games as part of their enrollment in the Navy’s Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor program, which is managed by Navy Installations Command (CNIC) and coordinates non-medical care of seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, and provides resources and support to their families. “We have many of resources for our Sailors in the Navy,
and it’s important for the fleet to have awareness of Navy Wounded Warrior’s mission,” Vice Adm. Mary Jackson, Commander, Navy Installations Command, said. “There are local elements to the program, which include not only adaptive sports, but many other non-medical resources. If there is a Sailor who is eligible, then we absolutely want to get them enrolled.” More than 550 wounded, ill
and injured servicemen and women from 17 allied nations competing in the international competition – going head-tohead in archery, athletics (track and field), indoor rowing, powerlifting, road cycling, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis, wheelchair rugby, golf and sailing. Among those athletes is HM1 Carlos Valerio, who contributes his continued healing to the Navy Wounded Warrior program. “I can’t thank Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor enough for what they have done for me,” Valerio said. “It has been instrumental in my recovery and helping me return to duty after my illness.” The competitions are taking place across Sydney at venues including the Olympic Park facilities, the location of the 2000 Olympics. “We have a special relationship with our Australian partners, and it’s been a rewarding visit strengthening our ties,” Jackson said. “Seeing the power of sport and all that our athletes on the US team have accomplished this week is beyond inspiring.” The Team USA roster is made up of athletes from all branches of the military and is a true joint-service entity that represented the country in Australia.
“Even though we are from different branches of service, it didn’t take us long to build relationships and recognize we are all on the same team,” retired AT Austin “Chance” Field said. “Great team work is the best way to succeed, and that’s why we competed so well.” The Navy wounded warriors showed up ready to compete at every competition, focused on doing the very best they could. “I love being here representing the US team in Sydney,” retired HM2 Emmanuel Gonzalez said. “We’re not on home turf, but the Aussies have been great hosts and the energy is amazing at every competition.” Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor provides individually-tailored assistance designed to optimize the success of the wounded warriors’ recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration activities.

he National Association of Social Workers (NASW) recently named Lauren Anzaldo, acting director of the Naval Air Station Whiting (NASWF) Field Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), the 2018 Social Worker of the Year for the state of Florida. Anzaldo started working with the FFSC at NAS Pensacola in 2013 and was the clinical supervisor before she came to Whiting Field to be the acting director in July. NASW was founded in 1955 and is the largest membership organization of professional social workers in the world. The criteria for the Social Worker of the Year award requires that the recipient make a demonstrable difference in advocacy for clients, social policy, social work practice, program development, administration, research, and demonstrates outstanding leadership. Anzaldo exceeded all of these criteria with her dedication to the Fleet and Family Support Center and a variety of social work activities. When Rikki Vidak, a fellow social worker who works
for the Veterans Affairs Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care System Joint Ambulatory Care Center, suggested that she would be an appropriate nominee for the award she told him, “I consider myself a doer and just do what needs to be done within my abilities. I would be proud to be nominated.” Anzaldo is very committed to social work and takes part in numerous volunteer organizations. She was on the NASW steering committee from 2008 to 2015 and chaired the committee in 2014 and 2015. She was a Girl Scout co-leader for the past seven years, helping plan and conduct dozens of volunteer projects. She is a founding member for the Open Books Bookstore and Prison Books Project. Open Books is a non-profit organization that exists to promote literacy and

raise money to provide free books to Florida prisoners. Anzaldo sits on the board of the Community Drug and Alcohol Council (CDAC). She has held this position for more than five years. She also serves on her church board, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Pensacola, and she actively volunteers within the Children’s Religious Education team. Anzaldo is a doctoral student at the Univer-
sity of Western Florida and is in her dissertation stage. Her dissertation focuses on exploring the transformative impact of diversity education of social work graduate students. Scott Scatterwhite, Anzaldo’s husband, is also very dedicated to social work and was awarded the NASW Florida Public Citizen of the Year for his work in the community. This award is for someone who
makes a significant contribution to an area or population of concern for the social work profession. NASW Florida Executive Director Jim Atkin presented Anzaldo and Scatterwhite’s respective awards at a reception held at O’Charley’s Restaurant in Pensacola, Sept. 28. “These awards could not have gone to a more deserving couple,” Atkin said.

Native Heritage Month
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 to 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 stateto-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.”
Word Search: ‘Tribes’
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
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 obser-

vance. 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. 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 2017, President Donald J. Trump issued an Oct. 31 proclamation designating November 2017 as “National Native American Heritage Month” and Nov. 25, 2017, as “Native American Heritage Day.” Another proclamation is expected for 2018.

CIWT civilians selected for Florida Leadership Development Program Story, photo by Glenn Sircy Center for Information Warfare Training
wo Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) federal employees were recently selected and are now attending a three-day orientation of the first offering of the Florida Leadership Development Program (FLDP) in Miami, Fla., Oct. 23 to 25. The two CIWT participants are Jacqueline Henry, CIWT’s comptroller, and Jim Murphy, a program analyst for CIWT’s Language, Regional Expertise, and Culture directorate. Henry has faithfully served as a federal employee for 25 years, and Murphy has for nearly eight. “I thought when I received my executive MBA, I was finished with school until the Florida Leadership Development Program came along,” Henry shared. “And during Vice Adm. Brown’s recent all hands call, he responded to a student and told him, ‘We should always continue learning.’ His response confirmed my commitment to the FLDP. In today’s work environment, challenges can arise at any time. And to be an effective leader, I want to be able to respond to those challenges with intelligence, strategy and expertise.” The 36 total participants in
the program represent an expansive cross-section of civilian and military agencies and organizations. This inter-agency perspective provides participants with an opportunity to network with and gain peer support from professionals from other agencies to enhance the learning process and the value of the FLDP experience. The program is part of a group of very successful regional programs already offered by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), beginning with the Colorado Leadership Development Program in 2000. It is designed to meet the leadership development needs of select federal professionals at the general schedule (GS) 14, GS13 and GS-12 levels or equivalent, who work in federal, state, or local government organizations located in the state of Florida. According to the program’s

Pictured are Jacqueline Henry, CIWT’s comptroller, and Jim Murphy, a program analyst for CIWT’s Language, Regional Expertise and Culture directorate.
overview, “This six-month program is based on a ‘whole person’ model comprised of four dimensions: intellectual, emotional, physical and behavioral. The curriculum applies this model through specific monthly sessions taught by highlyskilled professional facilitators who focus on the development of the OPM leadership competencies or executive core qualifications. Research shows that development of these competencies is essential to success in senior-level public-sector leadership positions.” “I’m grateful for the command’s investment in my professional development,” Murphy said. “There are a lot of worthy candidates for this type training, so I am humbled by
the selection. The ‘whole person’ concept and multi-faceted delivery of the program offer a unique and valuable experience. The knowledge and skills I receive from this program should benefit the command and those I serve through community involvement.” The program format begins with an intense three-day orientation focused on self-awareness and understanding. During orientation, psychological and behavioral assessments, experiential activities, discussion groups and presentations provide participants with an opportunity to explore and develop awareness of their strengths and areas for potential development. Throughout the remainder of
the program, monthly facilitated topic sessions are focused on delivery of content and activities designed to build on strengths and develop challenge areas. A number of additional assessments are conducted throughout the program to explore aspects of emotional intelligence, conflict management, and peak performance among others, to further explore selfawareness and promote opportunities for personal growth and development. Four one-on-one individual consultations with a professional executive coach are also conducted to guide development over the course of the program. The six-month program concludes with a two-day meeting where participants will engage in a career development session and a culminating event encompassing all aspects of the program. Henry and Murphy will graduate April 17, 2019. “We are very proud of our workforce, and continuous investment in their professional development, growth and education is paramount to the entire CIWT domain,” Jim Hagy, CIWT’s executive director said. “This program presents a tremendous opportunity that I feel will help contribute to organizational leadership capabilities, career development and personal growth for both Mrs. Henry and Mr. Murphy.” For more news from Center for Information Warfare Training organization, visit www. navy. mil/ local/cid, www. netc. navy.mil/centers/ CIWT or www. face book. com/ NavyCIWT.

• The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program: Provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family
member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victims to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions
and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 4499231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561.

From Mary Riker WSRE Horror movie fans are invited to gather at the WSRE Amos Studio Nov. 9 at 6 p.m. for a celebration of the film genre’s return to local airwaves. WSRE is producing 13 new episodes of “Nightmare Theatre” that is now airing Saturdays at 10 p.m. and streaming online at www.wsre.org. In celebration of the series launch, WSRE and Great Southern Restaurant Group are teaming up to present a film screening which will feature “Plan 9 From Outer Space” on the big screen, a Merrill Movie Museum exhibit, a costume contest and the stars of “Nightmare Theatre” – Mike Ensley as the Baron Mondo Von Doren, Chip Chism as El Sapo de Tempesto and Lemmie Crews as Mittens the Werewolf. Recent inductees of the Horror
Host Hall of Fame, the costumed trio have been presenting horror films since 2001, when “Nightmare Theatre” was first broadcast by Cox Media. Since then, there have been film festivals, other cable access broadcasts and a national appearance on SpikeTV’s “Ghouls Gone Wild” in 2006. The program last aired on WUWF-TV in 2016. Upon arrival to the Nov. 9 launch event, guests will be welcomed by the “Nightmare Theatre” cast, including the new Museum Curator played by Julio Diaz, the real-life collection curator of the Merrill Movie Museum. On each show, Diaz will showcase an item from the museum’s extensive collection of movie props, memorabilia and behind-the-scenes material. At the event, these items will be on display for fans to see up close. In the “Nightmare Theatre”
series plot, the Baron is a minor demon assigned to the physical plane to inflict misery upon mankind by way of “bad” movies. With his sidekicks – the masked wrestler El Sapo and pet werewolf Mittens – the Baron introduces old horror films in a humorous manner with little respect and a side of intriguing film history. The following films will be featured in this inaugural season produced by WSRE: “The Killer Shrews,” “A Bucket of Blood,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Mesa of Lost Women,” “The Terror,” “Moon of the Wolf,” “Horror Express,” “The Wasp Woman,” “Warning from Space,” “They Came from Beyond Space,” “Track of the Moon Beast,” “The House on Haunted Hill” and “The Brain That Wouldn’t Die.” The film screening of “Plan 9 From Outer Space” will begin at 7 p.m., following the movie memorabilia exhibit and costume contest entries, which will start at 6 p.m. “Plan 9 From Outer Space is one of those films that’s so bad it’s good, and the chance to experience it with a live audience is such a rare opportunity,” Ensley said. The film screening launch event is sponsored in part by Great Southern Restaurant Group, Hula Moon Tattoo and Messenger Hot Rods. Admission is free with online registration at www.wsre.org/nightmaretheatre.

CNATT: Make Labor Day weekend safety a priority Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Public Affairs
The Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) safety manager is reminding service members, civilian employees and their families to maintain safety awareness as they prepare for what is generally viewed as the end of summer. CNATTSafety Manager Krystal Hancock said that Labor Day, a federal holi-
day designed to honor the achievements of American workers, includes an extended weekend, with service members and their families often electing to travel to see family and friends. “Whether taking a long road trip or simply jumping in the car to run a quick errand, driving is inherently risky, and traffic mishaps continue to
be a leading reason for lost time, days, and lives across our force,” she said. Hancock said the National Safety Council (NSC) predicts this could be the deadliest Labor Day weekend for drivers in eight years, estimating that more than 430 people could be killed in traffic accidents throughout the Labor Day weekend. She added that service members, often sepa-
rated from their families and travelling significant distances to visit during the long weekend, should take some simple precautions before and during their trips. “Get enough rest before heading outsleepy driving is as dangerous as impaired driving,” she said. “Alternate drivers or take frequent breaks to ensure that whoever is behind the wheel stays alert.” See Labor Day on page 2
‘Be There’ for your shipmates during Suicide Prevention Month 2016 By James Rosenfelder U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery public affairs
NAS Pensacola to host 9/11 commemoration ceremony ... In commemoration of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, Naval Air Station Pensacola will present a ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard the base at 10 a.m. Sept. 9. The event will include a guest speaker and a musical rendition from the NATTC Choir, a traditional “two-bell” ceremony, honors performed by the NASP Honor Guard and a 21-gun volley. The public is invited to attend.
Navy Medicine recognizes September as National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, which began Sept. 1. The theme for Suicide Prevention Month 2016 is “Be There.” Throughout the month, Navy Medicine will highlight the power of peer support and personal wellness, encouraging Sailors and Marines to be there for their shipmates. “Action starts with prevention,” said Vice Adm. Forrest Faison, Navy surgeon general and chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BuMed). “When a Sailor needs assistance, easy access to support resources and mental health treatment is essential, as is validation of help-seeking behaviors.” Suicide prevention is a yearlong effort. Suicide Prevention Month serves as a reminder that building resilience and preventing suicide requires all
members of the Navy and Marine Corps community to work together. Every life lost to suicide is one too many. “Take action if you notice anything
out of the ordinary for a shipmate; reach out to them,” Faison said. “If you are having difficulties, seek help if See Prevention on page 2
