Aerial acts thrill thousands at NAS Pensacola

2018 Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show From NAS Pensacola Public Affairs Office

More than 120,000 spectators watched the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Team, the Blue Angels, perform during the 2018 Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show Nov. 2 to 3 onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. The annual show, an NAS Pensacola mainstay, marked the end of the Blue Angels 2018 season, and is an event NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Martin said is the successful result of numerous departments’ efforts. “The air show is our way of saying thanks to the community for their continued support throughout the year, and to highlight military aviation and the most professional aviators – both civilian and military – in the world,” he said. “Putting this show together is a concerted effort by every NAS Pensacola department – from the Sailors and civilian employees who worked countless hours behind the scenes to ensure a total success.” More than a dozen acts performed at the two-day event, including the Stearman Flight Team flying biplanes, Doc Ser-

rato flying a T-28C, RedLine Air Shows flying an R8, a U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor Demonstration, Skip Stewart flying a Pitts Special and the Blue Angels. Along with various acts performing aerial maneuvers throughout the day, numerous static displays – ranging from current military and civilian aircraft to World War II-era planes – dotted Sherman Field’s flightline, providing an interactive experience for visitors. The Blue Angels’ next demonstration is scheduled March 19, 2019, at the Naval Air Facility (NAF) El Centro Air Show in El Centro, Calif. NAS Pensacola, referred to as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation,” is designed to support operational and training missions of tenant commands, including Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC), the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT), Marine Aviation Training Support Groups (MATSG) 21 and 23 and is the headquarters for Naval Education and Training Command (NETC).

USS Nimitz flight deck exhibit opens From Malerie Shelton National Naval Aviation Museum (NNAM)

Visitors will instantly notice something different when they walk through the front entrance of the National Naval Aviation Museum (NNAM). A one-quarter scale replica of the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) recently opened on the quarterdeck, a dynamic representation of modern naval air power that sets the stage for the more than century old history told throughout the NNAM’s exhibit spaces. Encompassing some 8,000 square feet, the flight deck captures in two dimensions the components of the real thing, including arresting wires, catapult tracks and deck edge aircraft elevators. Looming above it is a recreation of the ship’s island, which was previously constructed by the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation to

On Oct. 31, President Donald Trump declared November 2018 the second annual National Veterans and Military Families Month to “salute the brave and dedicated patriots who have worn the uniform of the United States, and ... celebrate the extraordinary military families whose selfless service and sacrifice make our military the finest in the world.” In 2017, President Trump proclaimed No-

vember Veterans and Military Families Month, marking the first time America celebrated Veterans and military families for the entire month and not just on Veterans Day, in keeping with the President’s strong focus on improving care and benefits to our nation’s heroes. That tradition continues this year with more than 300 events being conducted at VA medical centers, benefits offices and cemeteries across the country, See VA on page 2

Anthony Giberman, anesthesiologist at NHP, Nov. 5. Medical services professionals (MSPs) are the individuals behind the scenes who make certain the credentials of all providers who are caring for patients are correct and have been verified.

National Medical Staff Services Awareness Week is being observed at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) Nov. 4 through 10. Medical services professionals (MSPs) are the individuals behind the scenes who make certain the credentials of all providers who are caring for patients are correct and have been verified. MSPs are experts in provider credentialing and privileging, medical staff organization, accreditation and regulatory compliance and provider relations in the diverse health care industry. They credential and monitor ongoing competence of the physicians and other practitioners who provide patient care services in hospitals, managed care

organizations, and other health care settings. “MSPs are critical to any military treatment facility,” Jesus Vitug, a MSP at NHP said. “MSPs are expected to advise the Privileging Authority and command leadership on credentialing and privileging matters. MSPs are the subject matter experts on credentials and privileging issues, provide administrative assistance to the chair of the Medical Executive Committee and the chair of Credentials Review Committee as applicable.” In 1992, President George Bush issued a proclamation designating the first week of November as “National Medical Staff Services

From 2003 to 2006, she deployed with Carrier Air Group 3 onboard the USS Harry S Truman (CVN 75) in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom in the Arabian Gulf. Taylor served as the Flight Line Division Officer, Airframes Division Officer, the First Lieutenant and Assistant Operations Officer. Taylor then transferred to VFA-106 where she transitioned to the FA-18F Super Hornet. She was reassigned to Strike Fighter Wing Atlantic as the Naval Aviation Readiness Integrated Improvement and SORTS program manager for the VFA and VF communities. In 2008 Taylor graduated from the College of William and Mary Legg Mason School of Business with a Masters in Business Administration. In February of 2009, Taylor transferred to the United States Naval Reserve and was assigned to Commander Third Fleet Maritime Operations Unit in Point Loma, San Diego. As a Joint Force Air Component Commander (JFACC) officer, Taylor served many strategic planning roles for Large Force Exercises: Blue Flag, RIMPAC, Terminal Fury and participated in COMPTUEX and JTFEX for multiple Strike Battle Groups. In April of 2012 Taylor was chosen by TRAWING 6 to join the Squadron Augment Unit (SAU) at VT-10 in Pensacola. In 2013 Taylor was reassigned to the VT-4 (SAU) as a Naval Flight Officer Instructor in T-39 Saberliner and to assist the squadron in the transition to Multi Crew Station (MCS) NFO training. In 2015 Taylor was qualified as an E-2 MCS instructor for AEW NFO Advanced phase of training. Cmdr. Catherine Sagehorn will relieve Taylor as the executive officer for the squadron.

We want visitors to know not only about naval aviation’s rich history, we want to give them an appreciation that as they set foot on this floor, young men and women half a world away are protecting their freedom on a Nimitz-class flight deck.” The new exhibit also fits into the museum’s enhanced focus on active duty engagement. “As a Department of the Navy entity, we feel that we must provide value to the warfighter,” Gilliam added. “This representation of a platform that is active today provides our active duty members a place in the museum that is inspirational to them.” The completion of the deck itself is just the initial element of what museum staff members hope is a dynamic presentation that captures the inherent excitement of carrier flight operations. “While we can’t recreate 30 knots of wind over the deck, permeate the air with JP5, and simulate the heat of jet exhaust, we think there are opportunities to present some of the dynamic aspects of carrier operations using large-scale multimedia components,” Gilliam commented. It will also educate the public about the various roles of flight deck personnel in their colored jerseys, the technological aspects of arrested landings and catapult launches, and teamwork required the choreograph the operations of high-performance aircraft in a very limited space. “We want people to walk in VA from page 1 including: • Open houses and town halls • Volunteer recognitions • Homeless veteran initiatives • Faith-based community events • Ceremonies at national cemeteries To celebrate Veterans and Military Families Month, Barrancas National Cemetery (BNC) will hold the following events honoring veterans and their families throughout the month of November: • Wreath Laying Ceremony at Mobile National Cemetery in Mobile, Ala. at noon today, Nov. 9, at the rostrum near

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-

and instantly become enveloped in what naval aviation is all about and then launch into the past so to speak and see how we got here by touring the rest of the museum.” The actual Nimitz was placed in commission May 4, 1975, with President Gerald R. Ford delivering the keynote address. “I see this great ship as a double symbol of today’s challenging times. She is first of all a symbol of the United States, of our immense resources in materials and skilled manpower, of our inexhaustible energy, of the inventive and productive genius of our free, competitive economic system, and of our massive but controlled military strength,” said Ford, who, during World War II, sailed as a crewman onboard an aircraft carrier in Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz’s Pacific Fleet. “Wherever the United States Ship Nimitz shows her flag, she will be seen as we see her now, a solid symbol of United States strength, United States resolve – made in America and manned by Americans,” Ford said. “She is a movable part and parcel of our country, a self-contained city at sea plying the international waters of the world in defense of our national interests.” President Ford’s words were prophetic and still ring true today for not only Nimitz, but also the nine Nimitz-class carriers that have followed her down the ways, the last being George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), which was commissioned in 2009. Though the Gerald R. Ford-class carriers, the lead ship of which was commissioned in 2017, represent the Navy’s newest flattops, the ships of the Nimitz-class will remain a vital component of the Navy’s arsenal for years to come.

MCPON Letter: Focus on building winning teams Letter from Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Russell L. Smith The world stage is a very dynamic and challenging one, with many nations maturing their ability to efficiently operate in the maritime environment. The evolution of technology, and our Navy’s growth in this new “great powers” era demands that our Navy apply resources in a far more refined and complex manner. As our Navy’s storied legacy continues, the Navy the nation needs will demand more from us. We must become stronger, run faster and effectively build teams to compete and win in high-end warfare at sea. Institutional loyalty – “ship, shipmate, self” – as well as or-

ganizational transparency and clear messaging will continue to be a priority, as well as dignity and respect between all of our teammates. Understanding the solemn privilege we have as stewards of the public trust will be emphasized. Austerity and humility are necessary attributes to embrace as we carefully manage the resources the American public has entrusted to us. Every Navy leader aspires to leave behind a better and more prepared Navy than the one they found when they arrived, and I am no different. The principal concern of the Office of the MCPON remains first and foremost to serve as a determined advocate on behalf of our enlisted force, as well as to find ways to leverage our

3,000 master chiefs in leading 31,000 chief petty officers to build winning teams in preparation for the future fight. Together we must set a blistering pace above, on and below the sea, projecting strength so profoundly that we give pause to anyone who would dare challenge us. Four great strengths of the Mess are technical competence, innovative thinking, communication and networking. These skills give us the ability to be a force multiplier in both peace and war, enabling us to solve the greatest

challenges by connecting our Navy horizontally. Known for using deckplate skills and experience to innovate and get results, the Mess will be absolutely essential to finding new and better ways to build muscle memory that develops toughness, which will lead to true combat readiness. We must keep Sailors from getting sidetracked or distracted, keeping them instead laser-focused on combat at sea against a determined enemy. To that end, we are engaged in delivering tools to the fleet, to render greater efficiencies in

both personnel management and how we educate and train our Sailors. Those efforts will return time and opportunity to the deckplates, allowing leaders to focus on tactical skills and warfighting readiness. Throughout our history, our greatest advantage has never been our machinery – rather, it has been the courage of the American Sailor facing adversity around the world. Perseverance, fortitude and spirit of service that each and every one of you brings to the fight will give us the decisive edge in the fight to come.

NASWF Ombudsman: A voice for the family By Ens. Phillip Craven NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Office

T

he importance of the Navy family cannot be over emphasized. With a history of the Navy Ombudsman spanning back to 1970 the program is an essential element that has helped countless families in times of need. According to the Navy.mil, website the program was introduced as a “means to address issues and concerns that are unique to Navy families.” Ombudsmen are primarily information and referral specialists who help command family members gain the assistance they need to succeed as part of the extended Navy family. Onboard NAS Whiting Field (NASWF), Command Ombudsman Meagan Eaton was eager to share information about the program. “We are here to help Navy family’s with anything they need,” Eaton said, expanding on the mission of the ombudsman.

“We partner with the Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) to ensure any pertinent information is passed on to the families who may require it.” She also stated that “we have access to many of the FFSC resources and can get family members in touch with a coordinator to get the resources they need.” When asked the reason she takes on this responsibility she answered, “I was a single mom on active duty and used the services a few times, so I saw the importance of it. Here at Whiting Field, the previous ombudsman was moving on and asked me if I wanted to

NAS Whiting Field Fleet and Family Services and Training Air Wing Five celebrated the installation’s ombudsmen recently at an appreciation dinner in Milton. Ombudsmen are critical to service members, providing ongoing interface and resources for family members. Pictured (left to right) are Amanda Emma, Meagon Eaton, Maggie Dori, Veancha White and Stephanie Coshen. Photo by Julie Ziegenhorn take on the responsibility, and I said ‘yes.’ ” Adm. Elmo Zumwalt, at the time the Chief of Naval Operations, created the program as a means to start an official line of communication between the Navy spouse and the command. Since then the program has grown and become a vital part of every command and link to its families. Although once just Navy wives, the ombudsman

program is now open to all spouses of active duty or reserve service members in the command. Eaton is just one great example of the many men and women who take on the responsibility of the Navy ombudsman. They work closely with installation commanders to support the families through multiple methods, creating a community for Navy spouses and families in times of need.

They maintain confidentiality and can coordinate services when the service member is deployed. The command Ombudsman plays a vital role in today’s Navy. If you or someone you know may need to get in touch with the Whiting Field ombudsman, you may contact them through the Facebook page under the Naval Air Station Whiting Field Ombudsman or e-mail at naswfombudsman@gmail.com.

You have the power to prevent and control diabetes

American Diabetes Month From www.cdc.gov

D

iabetes: If you do not live with it yourself, then it is likely you have a family member or friend who does. This November during National Diabetes Month, ask yourself if you are 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 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 second 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

Word Search: ‘Birds of a feather’

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. infant. Treatment may include diet, regular physical activity or insulin. Shortly after pregnancy, five 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 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 hemoglobin 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.

“For they conquer who believe they can.” “But far more numerous was the herd of such, who think too little and who talk too much.” “Happy the man, and happy he alone, he who can call today his own; he who, secure within, can say, ‘tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.’ ” “Words are but pictures of our thoughts.” “Time, place and action may with pains be wrought, but genius must be born; and never can be taught.” “The sooner you treat your son as a man, the sooner he will be one.” “He who would search for pearls must dive below.”

Marathon-running NMOTC XO goes the distance By MC2 Michael Lieberknecht Navy Medicine Operational Training Center

Capt. Michael Kohler was seated in an English class in 1994. His instructor asked the class to complete an unusual yet simple assignment. He had the class think of a remarkable accomplishment that would be fulfilled over the next 20 years. Kohler simply wrote down “to visit every state in the U.S.” In May of 2018, Kohler completed his goal from 1994, but with a twist. “Around this time I had started to pick up running again,” Kohler said. “I thought you know, maybe I should do something even bigger than just going to every state. Maybe I should run a marathon in every state.” Kohler, now executive officer of Navy Medicine Operational Training Center, grew up in Longmont, Colo., just outside of Boulder. His high school was known for its football team and Kohler played both basketball and football. His basketball coach suggested he try out for the school’s cross-country program. He decided to make a change and pursued cross-country his senior year. After making the cut, Kohler eventually landed on the varsity team and ‘lettering’ before enrolling in the Navy’s Delayed Entry Program in November 1986. He kept running recreationally after boot camp, mixing in a few 5K and

10K runs, but when he set his goal in 1994, had yet to tackle a marathon. “Historically, it has been the most challenging distance (26.2 miles) and a huge accomplishment to complete,” Kohler said. In the months leading up to his first marathon, Kohler was a Nurse Corps officer stationed in Pensacola. He was running frequently and was attending the Pensacola McGuire’s St. Patrick’s Day 5K, the largest 5K prediction run in America. It was at that race where Kohler met the woman who would one day become his wife. “After we met, we started running a lot together, and she knew I wanted to start doing marathons,” Kohler said. “The first one we did was the Blue Angel Marathon here in Pensacola.” During the next 19 years, the Kohlers began to tackle marathons one state at a time, coming home each time with another step toward the 1994 goal and adding another story. “Oklahoma City Marathon was pretty cool,” Kohler said, Boston wasn’t my favorite, but I have a lot of respect for it. My least favorite was Atlanta because of the weather. It was on Thanksgiving Day and it rained so hard the whole time and I was so miserable. It was for sure the most challenging, but it wasn’t my worst time.” His favorite was the New York City marathon because of the enthusiastic crowds.

Capt. Michael Kohler (right), executive officer of Navy Medicine Operational Training Center as of 2018, runs in a 9/11 10-year memorial run in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. As of May, 2018, Kohler has finished a marathon in every state in the U.S. Courtesy photo

In Wyoming he got very bad cramps. New Jersey also provided rough weather, but Kohler says North Carolina was probably the strangest. “It was in Boone, and it started at Appalachian State University, which is beautiful,” Kohler said. “It was a very challenging course, a lot of hills, and then you finish on a gravel track near these highland games. When we got there, we saw people throwing hay-bales while dressed in kilts. That was one of the craziest ones.” The Kohlers raised three children while pursuing their 50-state goal, forcing them to get a little more creative with planning out the family vacations. “When our kids were young-

er we’d do a vacation around a marathon,” Kohler said. “So they’d ask ‘Dad, why are we going to Deadwood, South Dakota?’ and I’d say ‘Well, we’re doing a marathon, but we’re also going to go to Mount Rushmore.’ ” Kohler keeps the recorded times of all his marathon races and can even recite some from memory. He said his worst time was in Wyoming at about four hours and 45 minutes. His best time was Chicago at three hours and three minutes. Kohler shares his passion of running marathons with his wife, who he claims is more proficient than he is. “She’s actually probably cumulatively was better overall because she’s always around three hours and 30 mins,”

Kohler said. Kohler has completed 55 marathons. He has qualified for the Boston marathon fivve times. He has run them in stranger places such as Guam and at Disney World. Nebraska was the final state on the list, and now he also shares his passion of running each year onboard NAS Pensacola. “Rock N’ Fly is like no other race in America,” Kohler said. “We have jets fly over, big screens, music played on the course. There is no cooler start of any race than the Rock N’ Fly.” Kohler started the annual Rock N’ Fly half marathon and 5K following the discontinuation of the Blue Angel Marathon, an iconic race which was held for more than 20 years before the devastation of Hurricane Ivan in 2004 brought the tradition to a stop. Kohler saw a void that could be filled and uses Rock N’ Fly to offer runners a great race and social event while giving 100 percent of funds raised to the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) and committees for the annual Navy Ball. In the last four years alone, Rock N’ Fly has raised more than $150,000 dollars for NMRCS. Now that Kohler and his wife have completed a marathon in every state, his eye is set on the obvious next step beginning next April in Rome. “Well, there are 10 provinces and three territories in Canada,” Kohler said. “Our goal now is to do the continents.”
