Spring ahead, fall back ... Look for more daylight in the morning: Nov. 5 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 Air Station Pensacola (NASP) was recently selected among several other commands as a 2017 recipient of the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) Energy and Water Management Gold Award. Every year, the Secretary of the recognizes Navy Navy and Marine Corps installations, ships and squadrons for outstanding commitment to energy and water management. The awards are presented to those commands that have made notable progress toward the Department of the Navy (DON) goals to reduce energy and water consumption, increase use of renewable energy sources and construct sustainable facilities.

“Earning the SECNAV Energy and Water Gold Award is a wonderful feeling,” Sabrina Williams, NAS Pensacola installation energy manager said. “The Gold level of achievement indicates that NAS Pensacola has a very good to outstanding energy program. This is a great accomplishment for any installation with such magnitude.” The DON Energy Program evaluates and classifies the overall energy and water management performance of each installation. Awardees are categorized according to SECNAV winners’ as platinum, gold and blue level achievers. Since Williams assumed the role as the installation’s energy manager in 2012, NAS See Gold on page 2

NASP lighthouse ‘shines’ with new landscaping By Ashley Laliberty NASP PAO Intern

The Sweet Bay and Oleander Garden clubs, both part of Pensacola Federation of Garden Clubs, are raising funds to sponsor a project to landscape the pathways leading to the entrance of the Pensacola Lighthouse. Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) is showing its commitment to the environment by donating a truckload of compost called “bloom” that will reduce the project’s cost. The award-winning

and double-A rated compost is made from leaves, grass, branches and biosolids that are rich in nutrients and free of bugs. The pH factor is 8 and is it is rich in very high-grade nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. The process to make the compost takes about 45 days, which is impressive compared to the average six-month process. “The goal is to create an environmentally friendly flowerbed at the See Light on page 2

Once moved, they will return to normal hours and the current number, 452-3730, will be transferred to the new building. They anticipate returning to normal operations Nov. 20. During the week of the move, DSO SE Det. Norfolk will handle any routine personal representation (PERSREP) appointments. Their number is (757) 341-4468. They will

only be available for personal representation calls between 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. CST Tuesday, Nov. 14 and Thursday, Nov. 16. The person manning the phone will do the initial intake and conflict check, and then transfer the call for the consultation.

Pensacola has received the SECNAV Energy and Water Gold Award in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017. In 2015, the command received the SECNAV Energy and Water Platinum Large Shore Award. Energy plays a crucial role in the Department of the Navy’s ability to provide the global presence needed to ensure stability, deter potential adversaries and present options in times of crisis. Installation-wide preventive maintenance performed by mechanics and vigilant building energy monitors who report energy leaks and display energy awareness materials in their respective buildings are some of the ways that a command can maintain its energy-conscious effectiveness. “It is also very important for the consumer of energy at NAS Pensacola to be conscious of their expenditures,” Williams said. “We encourage consumers to be mindful and if possible, purchase energy star equipment if their budget allows. For example, an LED light may be expensive however the longevity of usage will reduce the overall maintenance and/or repair cost.” No matter the command, hurdles and difficulties will always be a minuscule deterrent to environmental energy consumption usage success. “Despite the obvious challenges and obstacles the energy team endures through climate changes which come about due to heating degree days and cooling degree days that can make a significant difference in the installation energy usage, we still maintain our stance on energy consumption,” Williams said. “Even though this particular data can affect the overall energy reduction progress, it is still our responsibility as energy managers to stress energy awareness and encourage others to embrace an energy consumption-conscious culture.” For more news on U.S. Department of the Navy Energy, visit http://greenfleet.dodlive.mil.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. 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,

Marines react, save lives during Las Vegas tragedy Story, photo By Marine Sgt. David Bickel 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing

MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – Two Marine Corps helicopter mechanics recalled their experience of assisting in victim evacuation and casualty care at an Oct. 1 Las Vegas concert that became a mass-casualty attack. Sgt. Michael Vura and Cpl. Austin Cox, Marine Light Attack Helicopter Training Squadron 303, were attending the concert, heard the shots and took action. “Myself and Sergeant Vura headed to the concession area of the festival, which is toward the back of the concert area,” Cox said. “We heard the initial shots and didn’t know if it was the speakers making noise or actual gunfire. ... Then the shots went off again, and we knew there was a threat.” After identifying which side of the stage was targeted, both Marines ran toward the gunfire and started assisting in the evacuation of the crowd. “People were trying to get out of the area but were trapped in by crowd-control barricades,” Vura recalled. “We positioned ourselves in between the stage and the barricades and started assisting people in climbing the barricade and running for cover.” In the process of assisting victims trying to find cover, the Marines

came across several people who had been shot. They evacuated the injured victims while applying pressure and using makeshift tourniquets when needed. “We came across a man that was hit in the chest,” Vura said. “We moved some stuff out from under the stage and told his significant other to maintain pressure on the wound until rescue personnel could assist.” “As we turned to walk away, we found a girl that had a gunshot

wound to her neck,” Cox said. “We immediately pulled her over the barricade and started applying pressure to her neck. There was more blood coming from another wound, and we found that she had been hit in the back as well.” At this point, Vura and Cox separated. Cox stayed with the wounded woman and assisted in getting her to the hospital. “I remember the last thing she did when we got to the hospital was give

me a thumbs up,” Cox recalled. “I knew she was going to fight and that I could leave her in the hands of the doctors.” Vura continued helping victims escape and treated more wounded until the rescue teams arrived on scene. “I started making my way around the barricades and myself and another individual made some makeshift stretchers to carry the wounded to safety,” he said. “During that process, we carried around five to six wounded individuals, as well as several deceased bodies, out. At that point, SWAT arrived and secured the area. ... I just walked to the strip, sat down and tried to process everything that just happened.” Many would say these Marines went above and beyond the call of duty and demonstrated characteristics that are instilled in every Marine during training and life in the Marine Corps. However, they have no desire to be recognized for their actions. “I went to this country concert to get away from all of my life’s problems, and it became the realest moment of my life,” Vura said. “Remember the basics and know that something like this could happen at any moment.” “With Sergeant Vura there, I had more courage than I would have had on my own,” Cox said. “We were there when the people affected needed us. ... We are Marines 24/7.”

Connected Corpsmen in the Community expands care to service members in Pensacola By Jason Bortz Nacval Hospital Pensacola PAO

N

aval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) has implemented a new concept called Connected Corpsmen in the Community (CCC) that is designed to expand access and convenience of care for active-duty service members. CCC is available to local active duty service members from now through spring 2018. The services offered under the initiative include treatment for minor on-the-job injuries including sprains, strain, joint pain, minor cuts, blisters, insect bites and removal of stitches. “We are exploring an initiative designed to improve convenience for our active duty service members while expanding the role of hospital corpsmen through new training opportunities,” said Capt. Amy Branstetter, commanding officer, NHP. All local active-duty service

members are eligible to receive care under the CCC proof-ofconcept. Care will be available at the Naval Air Technical Training Center’s Chevalier Hall, Room 1112. The hours of operations are Monday through Friday from 4 to 8 a.m. and appointments are walk-in only. “The alternative location is designed to provide our active duty force with more health care choices for routine care while also providing our Navy hospital enlisted medical personnel, who save lives on the battlefield, with additional experience while assigned to shore-based facilities here at

Naval Hospital Jacksonville supports Blue Angels Air Show By Yan Kennon Public Affairs Senior Writer Naval Hospital Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) – Naval Hospital (NH) Jacksonville and Branch Health Clinic Jacksonville play a vital support role in the Naval Air Station Jacksonville Air Show, with medical and emergency management services. The Navy’s Blue Angels flight demonstration team is a highlight of the show, which takes place Nov. 4 and 5, with a practice show today (Nov. 3) for local schools. Air shows require intricate coordination among multiple agencies. Preparation for this year’s show began soon after last year’s Sea and Sky Air Show at Jacksonville Beach. As the National Disaster Medical System federal coordinator for northeast Florida and southeast Georgia, NH Jacksonville coordinates the efforts of about 16 civilian medical facilities to respond to many types of emergencies. “We plan and drill on a regular basis,” said Dana Shropshire, NH Jacksonville emergency management officer. “Seamless coordination between local military and civilian resources is key to timely response and medical care.” NH Jacksonville will operate an on-site flight line medical aid station during the air show. About 135 NH Jacksonville staff including physicians, nurses, hospital corpsmen and emergency management spe-

cialists, will participate over the course of three days. These personnel can respond to numerous types of medical situations, from minor trips and falls to emergencies. Many minor injuries can be treated on-site. Clinical staff will triage and assess, and either treat on-site or transport to a medical facility if needed. NH Jacksonville and NAS Jacksonville partner to coordinate emergency management operations for the Air Show, including NAS Jacksonville’s security and federal fire departments, civilian counterparts and additional state and federal security assets. Coordination supports the availability of resources, such as emergency medical evacuation. NH Jacksonville’s priority since its founding in 1941 is to heal the nation’s heroes and their families. The command is comprised of the Navy’s third largest hospital and five branch health clinics across Florida and Georgia. Of its patient population totaling 163,000 active and retired Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, Guardsmen and their families, about 85,000 are enrolled with a primary care manager and Medical Home Port team at one of its facilities.

CNO’s ‘A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority’ now online From Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) – Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson released “A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority,” earlier this year, a document that addresses how the Navy will adapt to changes in the security environment and continue to fulfill its mission. To read A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority go to www. cnic. navy. mil/ content/ dam/ cnic/ cnrse/ pdfs/ CNRSE/ CNO% 20Design% 20for% 20Maintaining%20 Maritime%20 Superiority.pdf. The term “design” refers to the document’s built-in flexibility, recognizing the rapid rate of change occurring in both technology and the maritime domain. “This guidance frames the problem and a way forward, while acknowledging that there is inherent and fundamental uncertainty in both the problem definition and the proposed solution,” Richardson said. The CNO’s design reaffirms the Navy’s mission, describes the strategic environment and identifies four lines of effort, each with corresponding objectives to guide the actions of the Navy and its leaders. The four lines of effort are the following: • Strengthen Naval Power at and from Sea • Achieve High Velocity Learning at Every Level • Strengthen our Navy Team for the Future • Expand and Strengthen our Network of Partners The document also details four “Core Attributes” that serve as guiding criteria for command decisions in decentralized operations: integrity, accountability, initiative and toughness.

USS Fitzgerald Sailors honored for damage control efforts after collision From U.S. 7th Fleet Public Affairs

Y

OKOSUKA, Japan (NNS) – Thirty-six Sailors, who distinguished themselves for their bravery and contributions to damage control efforts aboard the Arleigh Burkeclass guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62), were recognized at a ceremony Oct. 20. Vice Adm. Phil Sawyer, commander, U.S. 7th Fleet, awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal to 36 members of the Fitzgerald crew and a Flag Letter of Commendation to the ship’s two ombudsmen for their support to families. The Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal is awarded to service members who distinguish themselves by heroism, outstanding

achievement or meritorious service. Following the collision, which claimed the lives of seven Fitzgerald Sailors, the crew fought back against progressive flooding across 19 spaces for more than 16 consecutive hours. Facing constant peril from flooding, electrocution, structural damage and noxious fumes, these Sailors prevented further loss of life and ultimately saved the ship. Vice Adm.

Pensacola-area Marine winged at NASWF By Jamie Link NASWF Public Affairs Office

H

ailing from just 33 miles from where his “Wings of Gold” were earned, a Pensacola local is now a Marine whose wings were pinned upon his uniform, marking him one of the service’s newest helicopter aviators. 1st Lt. Taylor Vanstraten earned his wings of gold in a winging ceremony onboard Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Oct. 27 in front of family and friends as the 34,053rd aviator to be winged on the installation. Vanstraten is a graduate of Escambia High School in Pensacola, where he attended Navy Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC). Upon graduation, he went on to pursue ROTC in college. “My instructors were a direct influence to apply for the ROTC scholarship and go to college, Sgt. Major Andre Francis USMC retired was the reason I knew I wanted to be a Marine,” Vanstraten said. “I like how dis-

ciplined the Marines I met were and I knew it was the branch I belonged in.” He is the first Marine in his family, but not the first to serve in the military. Both Vanstraten’s grandfathers served the country, one as a pilot for a U.S. Government agency and the other a retired master chief in the Navy. Vanstraten took the stage at the Oct. 27 winging ceremony accompanied by his girlfriend Sara Sprout, his parents Jill and Halsey Rhodes, sisters Ashley and Shelby Vanstraten, grandparents Linda and Dale Gates, along with friends. Sprout winged Vanstraten at the center of the stage during the ceremony as a projector displayed the new aviator’s name with future heli-

copter choice, the CH-53E. The Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion is a heavy-lift cargo helicopter that has been in service since 1981. “She is the largest helicopter the Navy and Marine Corps fly and I am very excited to fly her,”

Vanstraten said. It is hard not to feel Vanstraten’s enthusiasm about serving as a Marine, flying and being a helicopter pilot. “I am most excited about mentoring Marines and flying a powerful fleet aircraft, I am

looking forward to seeing new places and traveling with Sara. “I have wanted to join the Marines since high school and being from Pensacola, I knew I wanted to fly. I will miss Pensacola, but it will always be home,” Vanstraten said.

Native American

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

For almost 100 years, Americans both Indian and 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 NewYork (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 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

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. Photo by Mike O’Connor U.S. citizenship for American Indians. In 1924, Congress enacted the Indian Citizenship Act extending citizenship to all U.S.-born American Indians not already covered by treaty or other federal agreements that granted such status. The act was later amended to include Alaska Natives. State observances The first time an American Indian Day was formally designated in the United States may have been in 1916, when the governor of New York fixed the second Saturday in May for his state’s observance. Several states celebrated the fourth Friday in September as American Indian Day. In 1919, the Illinois State Legislature enacted a bill doing so. In Massachusetts, the governor issued a proclamation, in accordance with a 1935 law, naming the day that would become American Indian Day in any given year. In 1968, then California Gov. Ronald Reagan signed a resolution designating the fourth Friday in September as American Indian Day. In 1998, the California State Assembly enacted legislation creating Native American Day as an official state holiday. In 1989, the South Dakota State Legislature passed a

bill proclaiming 1990 as the “Year of Reconciliation” between the state’s American Indian and white citizens. Pursuant to that act, then South Dakota Gov. George S. Mickelson designated Columbus Day as the state’s American Indian Day, thereby making it a state-sanctioned holiday. 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 2016, the president issued an Oct. 31 proclamation designating November 2016 as “National Native American Heritage Month” and Nov. 25, 2016, as “Native American Heritage Day.” Another proclamation is expected for 2017.

apt. Mark Goto, commanding officer of Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC), was recently invited to a uniform inspection of Northview High School’s Navy Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) cadets in Century, Fla. Oct. 4. Goto, along with his executive officer Capt. Carolyn Rice and senior enlisted leader HMCM Timothy Perkett, participated in the inspection, designed to help prepare cadets for their future in the military. The command triad

was invited by retired Navy Capt. Charlie Code, senior naval science instructor for the JROTC program at Northview High School (NHS). “A lot of hard work went into preparing for today,” Code said.

Charlie Code, senior naval science instructor for the JROTC program at Northview High School (left) and Capt. Mark Goto, commanding officer of Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC), during marching drill following a uniform inspection. The event was designed to help prepare cadets for their future in the military.

JROTC cadets stood in as the formation NMOTC triad entered the NHS gym. They stood quietly while waiting for inspection. After a quick introduction, Goto

began the inspection while giving advice and getting to know the cadets. “You guys have all the potential in the world,” Goto said. “Dream big,

and help others along the way.” Following the inspection and drill performance, the NMOTC triad met with top cadets of the program for a special lunch and discussion about military experiences. “I have supreme confidence that with your enthusiasm and your drive, you’re going to take care of this country, which will soon be yours to lead,” Goto said. The NMOTC triad expressed their gratitude for the invitation and opportunity before departing back to the office, but left feeling very confident

about the NHS Navy JROTC cadets’ future. “They are very squared away,” Goto said. “When I see this, that makes me happy.” NMOTC and its detachments are part of the Navy Medicine team, a global health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide highquality health care to more than one million eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ships, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

Artists on display at Arts Festival From www.visitpensacola.com

The nation’s top artists, scenic views, a cool breeze, live music, a spirited crowd blended together; these sensories make the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival (GGAF) in historic Downtown Pensacola one of the best-regarded, most popular arts festivals in the United States. This year, the festival will be held starting today, Nov. 3 and continuing through Nov. 5. The three-day, juried art show draws more than 200 of the country’s best painters, potters, sculptors, jewelers, graphic artists, craftsmen and other artists. The festival is ranked No. 30 in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine and the American Bus Association has named the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival one of the Top 100 Events in North America. Featured festival art ranges from classical to whimsical with everything from traditional painting, photography and sculpture to yard art, musical instruments, clothing and jewelry. It is the perfect time and place to begin holiday shopping or to treat yourself to a handmade treasure. Step back in time at the GGAF Heritage Arts section, where craftspeople from around the country demonstrate their own skills of blacksmithing, engraving, spinning, weaving and more. Music fills the festival grounds throughout the weekend. Live performances on the Main Stage include bluegrass, Cajun, jazz, blues and classical.

Artists display their work at the annual Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival. Festival attendees have a chance to see their work up close and personal, including the work of the International Invited Artist Yume Matsuo, from Japan. She will be hosting a booth at the festival grounds. Photo from www.ggaf.org.

The Parrish Performing Arts Stage showcases dance performances including folk, ballet and more. It is where local performing companies, dance schools, community groups and area folk groups have their time to shine. Neighboring Bartram Park is the site of the Children’s Arts Festival featuring hands-on art projects, all provided free of charge. While activities change from year to year, families are likely to find face painting, clay play, sand art, sidewalk art, paper crafts and a balloon man. The Children’s Festival is open Nov. 3 by invitation only for children with special needs from selected schools and is open to the public Nov. 4 and 5. Each year the event welcomes an International Invited Artist,

who creates and sells their work at the event. The International Invited Artist also gives a public talk and speaks to hundreds of students at area schools during their stay. This year’s International Invited Artist is Yume Matsuo. Born in 1986 in Japan, Matsuo began drawing in her early childhood. In March 2016, she left her job and became a fulltime artist. Her home state, Wakayama, is the sister state of Florida. GGAF is the place to see the best of what the Pensacola area has to offer, while also learning about culture and enjoying art from across the country and around the globe. For more information and a full list of festival events, visit www.ggaf.org.
