Spring ahead, fall back ... Look for more daylight in the morning: Nov. 6 at 2 a.m. marks the official end of daylight saving time; clocks should be pushed back one hour as the nation reverts to standard time. Even though you may be gaining an hour’s sleep, experts advise going to bed at the same time: it may take a few days to adjust to a new sleep schedule, as your own internal clock is reset. It’s also a good time to check or change the batteries in your home’s smoke detectors or carbon monoxide alarms.

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,

Milspouses are mixed bag of apples and oranges By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

I

know what you’re all secretly wondering about me. So, why don’t I address it right off the bat.

Yep, your suspicions are correct – I do weigh more than 150 pounds. I have worn double-digit sized pants since the eighth grade, I have Velveeta in my fridge, I never dust the ceiling fan blades, and I will admit it – I let the dog lick me – right on the mouth. There, now you know, I am not perfect. Isn’t it strange that humans instinctually size each other up, as if we’re all part of some Darwinian survival of the fittest scenario? What’s even more interesting is that competitive instinct affects military spouses differently than our civilian counterparts. Often, civilians compete on a material level – who has the most expensive handbag, the best lawn, the best-dressed kids, the fastest car, the biggest house, the highest paying job, or the coolest vacations. But in the military, uniforms broadcast rank and pay grade. Many of us live in identical base quarters, we take our

trash to communal dumpsters, wearing the same lounge pants we all bought from the same PX clearance racks for $9.99, and our trash contains the same K-cups and chicken bones we all picked up at the same commissaries. Since our spouses’ incomes and benefits are a matter of public record, the playing field for military spouses is entirely different than it is for civilians. We don’t compare material possessions. We want to know: Who has moved the most? Who has lived in the worst base housing? Who has suffered the most deployments? Who has lived overseas the longest time? Instead of tit-for-tats over who has the best Pottery Barn curtains, we military spouses wrangle over whose life is, strangely enough, harder. But the matchup over military hardships breaks down, when you consider that military spouses’ lives are really too diverse to compare.

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 andpotatoesoflife.com. According to the “2014 Military One Source Demographics Report,” there are 665,619 active-duty military spouses, and 381,773 selected reserve military spouses. There are also at least 326,000 sur-

viving military spouses and a whopping 15 million more spouses of U.S. military veterans, according to the “2010 National Survey of Veterans.” We may all be known as “milspouses,” but our differences are greater than our similarities. Military spouses hail from every branch of the U.S. armed forces. They grew up in big cities and small towns in every state. They are of varying ethnicities. Some are shy, others outgoing. Some have traditional careers, while others work at home. Some are young, and others, like me, are … young-ish. Also, like apples and oranges, our life experiences cannot adequately be compared due to variations in military communities. There are chaplains, aviators, culinary specialists, missile technicians, engineers, cryptologists, aircrew, submariners, infantry, artillery, tankers, and special forces, to name a few. Each community has its own subculture, deployment tempo, platform requirements, work schedules and social traditions. As a young Navy spouse, I felt inadequate when compared to friends in other military communities who were

enduring more deployments. When my husband deployed for a year in 2007, I thought it was my chance to earn some “street cred.” After the first six months alone with three children, a huge dog and endless home maintenance, I realized how silly I was for wishing hardship upon myself just so I would stack up to my friends. Now, after 25 years as a military spouse, I appreciate the diversity of our individual journeys. It’s not who moved the most, who lived in the worst base housing, or whose spouse had the longest deployment. Each of us has our own distinctive experience based on our military community’s subculture, our family make up, and our diverse backgrounds. Rather than competing, let’s focus on what military spouses have in common. We are hardworking, dedicated, and resourceful. We are strong in the face of hardship. We provide a constant presence at home. We share our active-duty spouse’s sense of duty, honor and patriotism. Most importantly, every military spouse loves a U.S. serviceperson, and like apples and oranges, they make all of our lives very sweet indeed.

Create a more secure password By Marine Capt. Daniel J. Putnam Naval OPSEC Support Team Public Affairs

N

ORFOLK (NNS) –We use passwords to protect ourselves online. It’s important to ensure that this protection is as strong as possible. Most users access websites with usernames and passwords. It can get frustrating trying to make and remember passwords that fit the myriad requirements of each website. However, there are a few key concepts to remember that will help you make your passwords, and subsequently your information, more secure. It may sound simple, but the longer your password is, the more secure it is. Many sites require passwords to be between eight and 16 characters, with upper case, lower case, numbers and special characters. As a result, many users make their password only eight characters. However, a 16-character password is always more secure than an eight-character password, no matter which characters are used.

A password is considered more secure based on how easy it is to crack. It’s incredibly important to use unique passwords for each different online account. You should not use the same password to secure your bank account as you use to secure your social media sites and email. If you use the same password for multiple accounts, an attacker who compromises one account can compromise more of your accounts. When you use unique passwords, you limit the ability of an attacker to access and compromise your accounts and information. It may be harder to remember more passwords, but it is much more secure to remember longer, less complex passwords, than one short password that is more complex.

At sea aboard USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63), protecting sensitive information is critical to the success of the ship’s mission. Operational Security (OPSEC) operates under the principle that one or more pieces of unclassified material, when put together, can damage security by revealing classified information.

Don’t store your passwords in a place that is easily accessible. Many people are tempted to store passwords in a document on their computer. However, this is an extremely unsafe practice

because of how easily computer files can be accessed. If you have to keep your passwords somewhere, it is safer to write them on a piece of paper and store that paper in a secure location, like a

safe. Do not keep passwords written down near your computer or in an area that other people readily have access to. Passwords should not be easily associated with your identity. Though it is

HM-15 conducts training in Gulf of Mexico By Katherine Mapp Naval Surface Warfare Center PCD

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (NNS) – Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron (HM) 15 conducted annual airborne mine countermeasures (AMCM) training at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) for almost two weeks during October. HM-15’s annual Helicopter Advanced Readiness Program (HARP) HAWKEX training is conducted at NSWC PCD, where the squadron can receive technical support to equipment used in mine hunting, such as the AN/AQS-24 sonar used in conjunction with the fleet’s MH-53E Sea Dragon aircraft, in addition to use in the Gulf of Mexico. Traditionally, when HM-15 visits NSWC PCD, the main focus is AMCM. This year, in addition to unit-level training the squadron focused on a scenario that involved the combination operations of a mine countermeasures triad, consisting of AMCM, surface mine countermeasures (SMCM) and underwater mine countermeasures UMCM). The training was developed to simulate real-world scenarios, so the squadron included Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit (EODMU) 1, EODMU6 and San Diego homeported mine countermeasures ship USS Champion (MCM 4). Cmdr. Vince Spozio, HM-15’s executive

officer, said the wealth of knowledge in MCM and mine warfare NSWC PCD encompasses is significant to HM-15’s mission set. “NSWC PCD is a great place for our squadron to conduct training; there are resident experts at NSWC PCD, both civilian and military, that provide support to HM15,” said Spozio. “Whether it is maintaining our equipment or providing us with insight into tactics, NSWC PCD is very valuable as we move forward into deployments. The experience gained at NSWC PCD prepares our Sailors before they deploy, so they’re getting

a good trial wargame before they enter the actual operating area.” Exercises give the fleet specific scenarios to which they respond by conducting MCM operations just as they would as if they were executing those actions in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operation. This ensures the Department of the Navy maintains a leading edge in warfighting technologies. HM-15’s robust presence at NSWC PCD included four MH-53E aircraft and 140 military personnel.For more news from Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division, visit http://www.navy.mil/local/NSWC.

easy to associate a password with something important to you, like a birthday or pet’s name, this information is often readily available on the internet and social media. Try to disassociate your passwords with your identity to prevent an adversary from easily accessing your accounts. A common method for creating a complex and long password is by using a keyboard walk. This involves creating a password by using a repetitive pattern on a keyboard. However, computer programs can be easily trained to recognize patterns. Additionally, a common password can be easily figured out by an attacker. Remember, passwords are essential to improving our cybersecurity posture. Adversaries and criminals are constantly trying to access the information that your passwords secure. Make sure to do your part by creating long, unique passwords. This simple act is one of the best ways to prevent cyber attackers from accessing your information.

USNA breaks ground at new cyber security studies center to prepare future Navy cyber warriors By Navy Office of Information (CHINFO)

A

NNAPOLIS, Md. (NNS) – The U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new $106 million Center for Cyber Security Studies Oct. 21. Three hundred people attended the event, including academy officials, Navy leaders and members of the Maryland delegation, U.S. Reps. Barbara Mikulski, John Sarbanes and C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger. The center was established in recognition of the critical importance that cyber operations play in our national defense and to facilitate the expansion of the Naval Academy’s cyber program, which includes a cyber operations major and required cyber curriculum for all midshipmen. Cyber operations is an interdisciplinary major that includes study in computer architecture, programming, data structures, networks, internet, database systems, information assurance, cryptography and forensics, as well as policy, law, ethics and social engineering.

Petersen family celebrates legacy in naval aviation By PO2 Paolo Bayas Commander Naval Air Forces Public Affairs

L

t. j.g. Audrey Petersen received her naval avia-

tor wings during a ceremony at Naval Air Sta-

tion Whiting Field (NASWF) in Milton Oct. 28. Petersen is a 2014 graduate of Vanderbilt University Navy Recruit Officer Training Corps (NROTC) and is slated to pilot the MH-60S Seahawk with the “Island Knights� of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25 in Guam. “This is a huge deal, so incredibly special for me,� said Petersen. “Every time I fly, I fly with six other dog tags that belong to the other service members of my family. Two are Marines, the other four – my mom, my dad, my brother and my grandfather’s wings. All aviators. It is an honor to be the next one in line.� Petersen was pinned with her wings of gold by

her mother, Amy Petersen, and father, Craig Petersen, during the ceremony. “I am very proud of Audrey as she receives her wings,� said Amy Petersen. “She’s had tremendous support from her family, but each time she gets in an airplane or helicopter it is just her, and the accomplishment is hers alone.� Amy Petersen retired as a commander with 2,393 accident-free flight hours in the Navy Reserve. She was winged at NAS Corpus Christi in June of 1985 and flew EC-130s with VQ-4 at NAS Patuxent River and the TC-4C with VA-42 at NAS Oceana. She is currently a United Airlines 747 first officer

NAS Whiting Field obtains easements for buffering acreage By Jamie Link NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) received approval for the acquisition of a restrictive easement for approximately 626 acres north of NASWF during a recent cabinet meeting with Florida Gov. Rick Scott. This acreage, part of the Florida Forever Wolfe Creek project footprint, is underneath noise contours, flight track profiles, accident zones and within a military planning zone. This long-term investment will serve a vital role in preserving and conserving critical habitat, as well as protecting the installation’s primary mission of training naval aviators in perpetuity. The easement prevents incompatible development surrounding the military installation providing buffering to help military missions continue with less impediment. Cmdr. Eric Seib, NAS Whiting Field operations commander, addressed Gov.

Scott and cabinet members during the meeting to explain the impact of the restrictive easement. “Your cooperation in managing developmental buffers are crucial for us to complete our vital training in a safe manner,� Seib said. NASWF’s longstanding multiyear encroachment partnering agreement with the State of Florida has made this project possible through the use of more than $500,000 of the Readiness Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) funding, coupled with $1 million in state funds. Scott and his cabinet praised the partnership, and thanked the installation for its work in conservation and base buffering initiatives. This restrictive easement acquisition is part of the state’s $2.2 million Florida’s Defense Infrastructure and Reinvestment Grant Program, “As a Navy veteran, I am proud to announce today that more than $2 million has been awarded for defense communities across 10 counties,� Scott said.

Vernon Compton, project director for the conservation organization Long Leaf Alliance Project, also addressed the governor and cabinet to echo the importance of conservation buffering acreage for NASWF. “Supporting this project today, you will be continuing that effort. It’s a win for the environment and it is really a win for base buffering and protecting (NASWF),� Compton said. This acquisition continues NASWF’s relationship with the State of Florida, Santa Rosa County, and its partners in encouraging compatible land development, conservation of public and private lands and encroachment partnering initiatives. In addition, the gained easement has the potential to be used for recreational opportunities for the base population, as well as the surrounding community. The installation is known as the busiest aviation complex in the world, serving 1.1 million flight operations and executes 139,969 flight hours comprising 14 per-

cent of all U.S. Navy hours flown worldwide. More than 1,300 flight students from U.S. and allied forces train at the base annually. NASWF has three towered airfields, 12 Navy outlying landing fields, 16 miles of runways, more than 4 million yards of airfield tarmac, 7,000 acres of land management and 92 miles of fence line that encompass 13,035 acres. Serving as the Navy’s largest air wing, the installation trains 100 percent of the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard helicopter pilots. NASWF is recognized as a Department of Defense role model for its mission sustainment, encroachment partnering and innovative outreach strategies to protect the installation’s mission and footprint. The execution of this project provides a substantial buffer in sustaining NAS Whiting Field’s military mission, as well as safeguarding continuity of quality resources for biological diversity.

You have the power to prevent and control diabetes

American Diabetes Month From www.cdc.gov

iabetes: If you don’t live with it yourself, then it’s likely you have a family member or friend who does.

D

This November during National Diabetes Month, ask yourself if you’re at risk of type 2 diabetes and take steps to prevent it. According to the latest Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Diabetes Statistics Report: • 29.1 million people or 9.3 percent of the United States’ population have diabetes. • Diagnosed: 21.0 million people. • Undiagnosed: 8.1 million people. (27.8 percent of people with diabetes are undiagnosed). What is diabetes? Diabetes is a group of diseases marked by high levels of blood glucose resulting from problems in how insulin is produced, how insulin works, or both. People with diabetes may develop serious complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and premature death. What are the types of diabetes? Type 1 diabetes was previously called insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus or juvenile-onset diabetes. Although disease onset can occur at any age, the peak age for diagnosis is in the mid-teens. Type 1 diabetes develops when the cells that produce the hormone insulin, known as the beta cells, in the pancreas are destroyed. This destruction is initiated or mediated by the body’s immune system and limits or completely eliminates the production and secretion of insulin, the hormone that is required to lower blood glucose levels. To survive, people with type 1 diabetes must have insulin delivered by injection or a pump. In adults, type 1 diabetes accounts for approximately 5 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. There is no known way to prevent type 1 diabetes. Several clinical trials for preventing type 1 diabetes are currently in progress with additional studies being planned. Type 2 diabetes was previously called non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus or

adult-onset diabetes because the peak age of onset is usually later than type 1 diabetes. In adults, type 2 diabetes accounts for about 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes usually begins with insulin resistance, a disorder in which the cells primarily within the muscles, liver and fat tissue do not use insulin properly. As the need for insulin rises, the beta cells in the pancreas gradually lose the ability to produce sufficient quantities of the hormone. The risk for developing type 2 diabetes is associated with older age, obesity, family history of diabetes, history of gestational diabetes, impaired glucose metabolism, physical inactivity, and race/ethnicity. African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, American Indians, some

ond or third trimester of pregnancy. During pregnancy, increasing blood glucose levels increase the risk for both mother and fetus and require treatment to reduce problems for the mother and infant. Treatment may include diet, regular physical activity, or insulin. Shortly after pregnancy, 5 to 10 percent of women with gestational diabetes continue to have high blood glucose levels and are diagnosed as having diabetes, usually type 2. The risk factors for

Asians and Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders are at particularly high risk for type 2 diabetes and its complications. Type 2 diabetes in children and adolescents, although uncommon, is being diagnosed more frequently among American Indians, African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Asians and Pacific Islanders. Gestational diabetes is a form of glucose intolerance diagnosed during the sec-

gestational diabetes are similar to those for type 2 diabetes. The occurrence of gestational diabetes itself is a risk factor for developing recurrent gestational diabetes with future pregnancies and subsequent development of type 2 diabetes. Also, the children of women who had gestational diabetes during pregnancies may be at risk of developing obesity and diabetes. Prediabetes is a condition in which individuals have high blood glucose or he-

Diabetics use a blood glucose meter and a lancet (a tool to get a drop of blood) to check their blood glucose. A meter will use the blood to give you a number which is known as the blood glucose level. It is usually checked before meals, after meals and sometimes at bedtime.

moglobin A1C levels but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. People with prediabetes have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke, but not everyone with prediabetes will progress to diabetes. The CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program, a large prevention study of people at high risk for diabetes, showed that lifestyle intervention that resulted in weight loss and increased physical activity in this population can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes and in some cases return blood glucose levels to within the normal range. Other international studies have shown similar results. Risk factors for type 2 diabetes You are at increased risk for developing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes if you: • Are 45 years of age or older. • Are overweight. • Have a family history of type 2 diabetes. • Are physically active fewer than three times per week. • Ever gave birth to a baby that weighed more than nine pounds. • Ever had diabetes while pregnant (gestational diabetes). Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) can help TRICARE beneficiaries assess their risk of diabetes. Contact one of NHP’s certified diabetes educators: LaNora Glaze at 505-7099 at NHP’s Family Medicine’s Medical Home Port or Joyce Robinson at 505-6367 at NHP’s Internal Medicine Medical Home Port.

1982 Holy Cross High School graduate and Chalmette, La., native commemorated the end of his naval career with a retirement ceremony held at the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NAS Pensacola Oct. 21. Friends, family and fellow Sailors recognized Master Chief Petty Officer Frank Carollo for his accomplishments throughout a career that spanned more than three decades. Master Chief Petty Officer Shawn Coursen spoke about Carollo’s service to the Navy and the impact he had on his fellow Sailors. “I look at today as a wonderful day for Frank but also a sad day because the Navy is losing a truly caring leader,” said Coursen. “He would always make time for any Sailor, Soldier, Airman or Marine. He has shaped and molded thousands of future naval leaders, and these same Sailors will carry on his legacy for years to come.” During the ceremony, Carollo received the Meritorious Service Medal for his achievements as the Information Systems Technician “A” and “C” schools leading chief petty officer, overseeing both initial and advanced skills training for Sailors preparing for the information technology field,

as well as leading chief of the Naval Military Training Department at Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station. He was also gifted the traditional shadow box, a display case showcasing his career, as well as a new guitar from the Pensacola-area Chiefs Mess. “Sixty-four percent of my life has been spent in the Navy,” said Carollo. “These last 33 years have been the best years of my life.” Carollo was accompanied by his wife, Tara, and two of his children, who, at the conclusion of the ceremony, joined him as he was piped through the honor side boys and symbolically walked ashore for the last time. “The people I served with along the way and the jobs we did are what made my career special,” said Carollo. “Thanks for taking me along for the ride, and what a ride it’s been.” Carollo enlisted in the Navy in 1983 as a radioman, with his first duty station at Fleet Center, Verona, Italy, as a radio operator

He also participated in a historic cir-

cumnavigation of the globe. In 2013, Carollo reported to his final duty station at IWTC Corry Station. This was his second tour back at Naval Air Station Pensacola’s Corry Station, supporting the Navy’s training mission. “I’ll miss the Navy,” Carollo told his guests at the ceremony. “I’ll miss leading Sailors and miss being a chief. I promise to wear the anchors in my heart every day for the rest of my life.” Carollo is a graduate of the Navy Senior Enlisted Academy, the Joint Special Operations University’s Senior Enlisted Course, and the Army Airborne Course.

He is designated as an Enlisted Information Warfare Specialist and a Naval Military Training Instructor, and he is qualified as a naval parachutist. Information Warfare Training Command Corry Station, as part of the Center for Information Warfare Training, provides a continuum of training to Navy and joint service personnel that prepares them to conduct information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

UWF’s veterans resource center celebrates 5 years From the University of West Florida

T

he University of West Florida (UWF) Military and Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) celebrated its fifth anniversary Oct. 12. The celebration included an open house barbecue to honor those who have protected and served and featured a live jazz band, office tours, refreshments and guest speakers, including student testimonials. The center was opened in October 2011 to create a one-stop shop, providing guidance in navigating university, state and federal resources and assisting military and veteran students as they make the transition from military to civilian life. “We opened the MVRC to create a place on campus where veterans feel comfortable coming for help and receive accurate answers to their ques-

tions as they work through the process of using their GI Bill educational benefits,” said Marc Churchwell, MVRC director. Churchwell said the most significant accomplishment in the MVRC’s first five years was eliminating delays in tuition payment for all students using GI Bill Benefits. “This one thing removed tremendous stress and frustration for students

using these benefits, allowing them to focus primarily on their academics,” he said. Another notable achievement is the creation of the mentoring and vounseling program, dedicated to oversight of the dandards of progress of all students using GI Bill educational beneThe program provides fits. intervention in the form of mentoring, counseling and/or tutoring support as needed for students experiencing difficulties in their studies. Churchwell said he credits this program for keeping more students in school and preventing them from dropping out for poor academic performance. The MVRC also awards scholarships annually to military students and their dependents and, through a recent donation from Gulf Power, provides

resources such as book stipends and emergency assistance. The MVRC’s efforts to support veterans hasn’t been limited to the UWF student body. For Churchwell the last two years, the MVRC has presented quarterly networking meetings that include more than 50 different veteran support organizations from the Northwest Florida community, in an effort to eliminate the silos of communication among the organizations and empowering them to help each other help more veterans.

Painting, sculpture, ballet, jewelry, music, crafts from the past and food – all the arts come together at the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival (GGAF). The 2016 festival starts today, Nov. 4, and continues through Nov. 6 in Seville Square. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 6. No pets are allowed. Admission is free. The juried art show draws more than 200 of the nation’s best painters, potters, sculptors, jewelers, graphic artists, craftsmen and other artists. The festival also features a variety of music starting today with Kim Carson and Jonathan Byrd. Tomorrow’s line-up includes Rick Udler, Nikki Tal-

ley, Jonathan Byrd, Claire Lynch, and Du & the Zydeco Krewe. The Pensacola Symphony Orchestra will perform Nov. 6 and that day’s line-up also includes Nikki Talley and Holly Shelton. A favorite of festival fans, The Heritage Arts area provides an authentic setting for craftspeople from around the country to demonstrate such arts as blacksmithing, engraving, spinning, weaving and other skills. Neighboring Bartram Park is the site of the Children’s Arts Festival with hands-on art projects for children plus an entertainment stage. Activities are all provided free of charge. The Children’s Festival is open today for children with special needs from selected schools and is open to everyone tomor-

row and Nov. 6. Also in Bartram Park, you’ll find the Student Art Show, which showcases the talents of private and public school students of Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. More than 2,000 pieces of art from elementary, middle and high school students will be on display. The Parrish Performing Arts Stage showcases performing companies, dance schools, community groups and area folk groups. Each year, the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival selects an International Artist for a cultural exchange with the community. The 2016 invited International Artist is Diego Carbajal, a Peruvian artist/silversmith who creates sculpture. For more information, go to www.ggaf.org.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). 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 victim 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.
