Big crowd turns out for Blue Angels NAS Pensacola marks 100 years with the team’s homecoming air show; see pages 4-5 for photos Story, photo by Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

The Blue Angels closed out the 2014 season in spectacular fashion with the annual homecoming air show Nov. 7-9 at Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP). An estimated 189,000 enthusiastic fans turned out for the three-day event, which included a practice run and two full shows at Forrest Sherman Field. The show, part of the yearlong celebration for the 100th anniversary of NAS Pensacola, also marked the first time the U.S. Navy flight demonstration squadron has performed a Sunday Show at NASP. “This year marks the centennial anniversary of NAS Pensacola, so literally Pensacola has supported us for 100 years,” said NAS public affairs officer Patrick Nichols. “This air show is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the city, county and surrounding areas for their continued support.” The Blue Angels gave

68 performances at 35 locations in 2014. The Pensacola show was a definite treat for hometown fans after the team was grounded for much of 2013 due to sequestration cuts. “Everybody missed the Blue Angels when they weren’t here last year, so this makes it that much more special,” Nichols said. The weekend began with the Blue Angels parked on the flight line for a special night show featuring pyrotechnic acts and fireworks culminating in the “wall of fire” – an explosion of flames behind the F/A-18 Hornet jets. The Blues were the main attraction on the official show days along with the team’s C-130 Hercules transport known as “Fat Albert.” The show also featured a number of other military and civilian acts. Highlights included the Budweiser Clydesdales, the flame-throwing Shockwave Jet Truck driven by Neal Darnell and U.S. Air Force Academy Wings of

NETSAFA hosts Indonesian senior military delegation By Lt.j.g. Mike Hathaway NETC PAO

A group of senior military officers from Indonesia, including six admirals and one brigadier general, visited Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola Nov. 5-6 as part of a tour of four naval installations across the United States. Following a welcome by Rear Adm. Mike White, commanding officer of Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), and Capt. Doug Heady, commanding officer of Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA), the visitors were briefed on NETSAFA’s mission coordinating training support to international governments and organizations, to include aviation training to all foreign national flight students. “The visit, briefings, and command discussions provided a valuable window into U.S. naval aviation education and training, and will serve to assist in development of similar programs for the Indonesian Navy,” said Heady. “This is of increasing importance as the Indonesian Navy undergoes force moderniza-

tion and seeks to increase their operational capacity.” The afternoon included command briefs and tours

of both Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC) and Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC), allowing the visitors to meet with both schools’ commanding officers. NASC and NATTC provide the academic and technical training to prepare aviators and aviation technicians, both officer and enlisted, for the fleet. Before their departure to Naval Air Station (NAS) Pautuxent River, Md., the next stop on their tour of Naval installations, the group was given the opportunity to see aviation survival swim facilities including the “helo dunker” which trains personnel to escape from an aircraft in the water. All flight students, including foreign nationals, must successfully complete water survival training in order to advance to the next phase of flight training. Maj. Jeff Pogue, from the Office of Defense Cooperation (ODC) Indonesia, was very impressed with the group’s visit to the Pensacola area. “Being able to see first-hand the full spectrum of aviation maintenance training, personnel management

It was worth it, ʻbecause the world is still freeʼ … World War II veteran Fred Reichmann (left) attended the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Pensacola Nov. 11. Reichmann, today 90 years old, served as a waist gunner onboard Boeing B-17 bomber aircraft in the 303rd Bomb Group, 358th Squadron, based in England. Tech Sgt. Reichmann flew 28 missions from 1944 to 1945, hitting such targets as Berlin, Leipzig and the Rhur valley. “Anything Hitler owned,” Reichmann said. From his view, German fighters were few late in the war but there was plenty of German antiaircraft fire. “The flak was bad,” he admitted. “We were lucky we didn’t get hurt.” On Veterans Day he came to recall his crew and others who served. It was worth it, he noted, “because the world is still free, thanks to the veterans.” (Right) The U.S. Navy Cracker Jack Marching Unit from Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) passes through the intersection of Palafox and Main streets.

Blue Angels Elementary School invites veterans and active-duty service members for Veterans Day From Kim Stefansson Escambia County School District public relations coordinator

Veterans Day is a time to stop and thank those who served our country in the armed services in the past or who still serve today. The teachers, staff and students at Blue Angels Elementary School have made an annual opportunity to invite military family members to gather with the students to reflect on veterans’ military service while enjoying performances of music and dance. During the recent Blue Angels’ Veterans Day event, guests gathered in the school’s media center at tables covered with flags, pictures and thank you cards created by the students, and lots of red, white and blue. When everyone was ready, the guests paraded down the hall behind a drummer, Wes Delware (U.S. Navy veteran) from McGuire’s Irish Band, and a military honor guard from the Naval Aviation Technical Training Center (NATTC). As they entered the main hallway, they were greeted by smiling students who lined both sides of the walkway. Some were waving flags while others were holding up signs honoring the different services represented by their guests. For some of the invited guests this was their first chance to experience a “Take a Veteran to School” event; others were, well, veterans. “They put on a good performance,” said T.J. Waldo, grandfather of Blake Toussaint, a third-grader this year at Blue Angels Elementary School, who was attending for his third time. “But I don’t want to give anything away.” Sitting with Waldo was retired Marine Gunnery Sgt. Al Miller and his wife, Lordez. They had been invited by their grandson, Ryan Reed, a firstgrader, for their first Blue Angels’ Veterans Day event.

Children at Blue Angel Elementary – many with military family members – found in Veterans Day an opportunity to express their thanks.

Later, as the chorus sang a medley of military service hymns, Miller proudly stood at attention when the children began to sing, “From the Halls of Montezuma.” In addition to the choral performance, quests and students heard from three military speakers. Navy Cmdr. Tyler Frye, commanding officer of NATTC, explained how his education shaped his life starting with his first grade teacher – who was also his grandmother. Later, his fifth grade teacher was also someone who had a great influence on his life – she was his mother. “Looking back, now I realize what a great foundation I had. That’s what education is – a foundation.” He told the students in the room to remember that, “everything you need to learn starts right here.” He concluded by

telling them that he is living his dream now, because of his education. The next speaker was someone very familiar to many of the students and staff at Blue Angels Elementary, it was retired Navy Lt. Cmdr. Noah Gengler, who now serves in a new way, as a substitute teacher. Known around the school as “Mr. G.,” Gengler enjoys sharing stories of his adventures with his students from learning how to use chopsticks in Japan, to learning how to hula dance in Hawaii. “My best memory,” Gengler shared, “was getting my first paycheck after boot camp. I couldn’t believe I was on my own, and I was being paid to do something I enjoyed.” “I learned three lessons for how to be happy and successful. The first one is to take pride

in who you are and what you do. Two, don’t worry about your grades so much; do your best every day and your grades will take care of themselves. And three, a wise man once taught me, my dad taught me this – ‘Keep your eye on the donut and not on the hole.’ ” The third veteran to speak to the room full of people was Navy Cmdr. Barry Hudspeth, and husband of Carol Hudspeth, who teaches fourth grade at Blue Angels Elementary. He spoke with great pride about his father’s service as well as his own. He then thanked all of the service members in attendance with the words, “Thanks for your service and the dreams you have lived.” The assembly was treated to a patriotic dance performance and many songs. Then the room got misty with a tribute to mothers, especially those mothers who have lost loved ones to military service, the members of the Gold Star Mothers. As students presented flowers to the mothers of service members in the room, everyone learned that for many years, mothers who have sent loved ones off to war would hang a banner with a blue star on it in a front window. If their

loved one died while in military service, they would change the banner to one with a gold star. Over time, these mothers started to find one another to provide support to each other, and then that support grew to helping others as chapters of the Gold Star Mothers organization began to form around the country. There is an old saying that summarizes military service, “All gave some. Some gave all.” For those in attendance Nov. 7 at Blue Angels Elementary, Take A Veteran to School Day served as a reminder to take a few moments to reflect on those who gave to our country’s service in the past and those who continue to give us their service today, as well as all of their families, and to stop long enough to say, thank you for the country’s freedom.

As the guests traveled down the hallway to the cafeteria, children on both sides waved American flags and cheered. When each guest passed the child he or she was related to, the student joined the parade so they could sit with their loved one for the assembly.

team. His next duty station will be in Japan, where he will be flying a Superhornet. “You know, I have really enjoyed it along the way,” he said. “It has been four great years doing this. I would do it all over again. I’d do it for four more years if I could, but you know it is time for the next group of folks to come in behind me.” The team is expected to take off for the winter training in California in January and return to NASP in the spring to resume practices. The 2015 schedule includes 64 performances at 34 locations throughout North America. The season will kick off March 14 at the Naval Air Facility El Centro. The next formal show in the Pensacola area is the weekend of July 11 for the Pensacola Beach Air Show. Next year’s homecoming show is scheduled for Nov. 6-7.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins 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,

Couples learn a few essentials at marriage retreat By Bobby L. Hinton NASP CREDO facilitator

Who is this 10th doctor, dentist, or couple that is always the odd person out – going against popular opinion. Is there a club that meets nationally to discuss studies that they are going to infiltrate? The nine out of 10 club’s influence is seen in most studies and advertisements on television. In the commercials you hear, nine out of 10 here and the nine out of 10 there. Are there any 10 out of 10 studies? Can studies screen for people that will not go against the majority due to either ethical or personal principles? However, when I speak to couples that are unhappy in their marriages, there is unanimous agreement that marriage sucks, spouses are uncaring, the relationship is empty and intimacy is non-existent. Wow, I have found the ellusive 10 out of 10. But why does it have to be found here – the most important relationship in the lives of people. Why is there a vote of solidarity

How to submit a commentary

when looking at the negative aspects of relationships? Is it because these feelings tug so hard at our emotions? Why can’t there be something other than unanimous feelings when dealing with failed loves? After doing research and using a bit of common sense, with some help I discovered that there are some aspects of marriage

about which I could get unanimous agreement from all couples, and it is definitely positive. After scouring through multiple offerings of literature by self-proclaimed marriage gurus on what makes marriage work, I have discovered that communication is the answer to all problems – yes to some degree, but more is needed. Then on the other

end of the spectrum, I uncovered that deep introspection will make a marriage work – yes, it will help, but there is still more needed to make a marriage thrive. What is the magic word, the secret formula, the coup de gras, that will solve all marital strife and discord? There is no magic word or thing, but I have learned eight prac-

tices that will help you live together more peacefully and lovingly. Isn’t that what couples want in their marriages? These eight principles will allow each person to be accepted and loved, creating a place where the true self can be accepted and loved. Before sharing these eight tips, I want you to imagine with me that you are living in a home with your spouse. In this home, you only have enough room for your basic personal space: beds, dining room table and chairs, closet spaces, one computer, one iPhone, one iPad, a few outfits and a few other items that you both deem necessary. Looking around your home, you discover a balance between empty spaces and occupied spaces. As you and your spouse sit on the floor, you both discover something new about each other. Joshua Becker, the author of “Simplify and Clutter Free with Kids,” shared some useful actions that healthy marriages practice. He presented eight essentials

that any married couple would vote unanimously are needed for a marriage to thrive. They are: 1. Love/commitment. 2. Sexual faithfulness. 3. Humility. 4. Practice of forgiveness. 5. Time. 6. Honesty and trust. 7. Positive uplifting communication. 8. Selflessness. In the Marriage Enrichment Retreat (MER) we discuss these items in great detail and how they can positively or negatively affect your marriage if not practiced often. If you are interested in attending the next MER, contact the Command Chaplain’s Office and Tony Bradford, the CREDO facilitator, at 452-2798. There is a retreat coming up soon, sign-up and be a part of the experience. Bobby Hinton is a CREDO facilitator at NAS Pensacola. For more information on any CREDO program, contact the Command Chaplain’s Office at 452-2341.

NAS Whiting Field revives ‘Fire and Safety Night Out’ By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

After a several year hiatus, Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s (NASWF) Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) and the installation fire team rekindled an old tradition of bringing fire safety awareness to the military family community at the Whiting Pines Housing Complex. Coordinated in conjunction with Fire Safety Month, the event works to provide a fun-filled environment where children can engage with the ideas of fire safety. The goal is to help children and families deal with fire safely and to know what to do in case of an uncontrolled fire. Fire and Safety Night Out kicked-off with some opening remarks from NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin, who welcomed everyone to the fair and expressed the event’s importance. Booths were set up with displays showing families how to prepare a grab-and-go fire safety kit. Sparky, Milton’s Fire Safety mascot, was on the scene alongside a bouncy castle. The Whiting Field chief petty officers were on hand providing their locally renowned barbecue to all gath-

ered. The City of Milton Fire Department’s puppet energized the crowd with informative songs to teach children that – used correctly – fire can be good, too. Visitors to the Fire and Safety Night Out expressed the value of the event and Whiting Field’s military family. “I think it’s great to have everyone come out and get together, and teach the kids about safety, and just bring out a sense of community,” Destiny Dougherty said. Nearly 100 attendees arrived to learn about fire safety and build a sense of community, a bigger turnout than the organizers had been expecting since the event hadn’t happened since 2009.

Not only was the guest attendance better than expected, but the number of vendors was a pleasant surprise as well. “This is definitely a much better turnout than we expected. To have this many agencies, especially agencies from off the instillation along with the turnout of people that we’re getting is pretty amazing,” stated Greg Snyder, the fire inspector for NAS Whiting Field and one of the organizers for the event. After its sabbatical, the fire safety day is one tradition Milton can certainly expect to see flare up again next year.

At NASWF, Navy makes children’s health a priority By Ens. Kim Mahoney NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) will be conducting lead testing on the water outlets at the NASWF Child Development Center Nov. 17-18. The testing is part of the Navy’s “Lead in Priority Areas” water testing procedures, which will take additional precautions in pro-

tecting children from potential lead exposure. Schools and childcare facilities have been made a priority due to children being more susceptible to lead exposure. Although NASWF’s water supply meets regulatory standards for lead, there is the possibility that a specific building could have increased levels due to the presence of lead in older faucets or distri-

bution points. The Navy has established testing requirements that will sample water from the faucets of the Child Development Center on Whiting Field, which is a preventative measure used to identify any lead issues and ensure the continued safety and wellness of the children on base. “There are no known lead issues on this base, this is part

of a proactive measure by the Navy which is going above and beyond what the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires,” said Jon Croci, NASWF drinking water manager. The testing will encompass approximately 25 outlets used by the staff and children for drinking water and cooking. After the samples are gathered, it will take 4-6

weeks for a laboratory to provide results. “I am committed to updating you every step of the way and will continue to ensure the safety and wellness of your children,” said Commander Naval Air Station Whiting Field Capt. Matthew F. Coughlin in a letter sent to parents of children who attend the Child Development Center.

Getting choked up: American Cancer Society’s 39th annual Dangers of second-hand smoke

Great American

From Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Secondhand smoke is dangerous. The Surgeon General of the United States, working with a team of leading health experts, studied how breathing secondhand tobacco smoke affects you. What is secondhand smoke? When a person smokes near you, you breathe secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke is the combination of smoke from the burning end of the cigarette and the smoke breathed out by smokers. Whether you are young or old, healthy or sick, secondhand smoke is dangerous. What we now know: • There is no safe amount of secondhand smoke. Breathing even a little secondhand smoke can be dangerous. • Breathing secondhand smoke is a known cause of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Children are also more likely to have lung problems, ear infections and severe asthma from being around smoke. • Secondhand smoke causes heart disease and lung cancer. • Separate “no smoking” sections do not protect you from secondhand smoke. Neither does filtering the air or opening a window. • Many states and communities have passed laws making workplaces, public places, restaurants and bars smoke-free. But millions of children and adults still breathe secondhand smoke in their homes, cars, workplaces and in public places. For more information on secondhand smoke, talk to your doctor, nurse, pharmacist or other healthcare professional. More facts and advice are available from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention www.cdc.gov/ tobacco.

November 20, 2014 From www.cancer.org

he American Cancer Society (ACS) marks the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November each year by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. By quitting – even for one day – smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk.

T

Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States, yet about 42 million Americans still smoke cigarettes – a bit under one in every five adults. As of 2012, there were also 13.4 million cigar smokers in the United States, and 2.3 million who smoke tobacco in pipes — other dangerous and addictive forms of tobacco. It’s hard to quit tobacco. Research shows that smokers are most successful in kicking the habit when they have support, such as: • Telephone smoking-cessation hotlines. • Stop-smoking groups. • Online quit groups. • Counseling. • Nicotine replacement products.

“Research shows that smokers who have support are more likely to quit for good.” Using two or more of these measures to quit smoking works better than using any one of them alone. For example, some people use a prescription medicine along with nicotine replacement. Other people may use as many as three

or four of the methods listed above. How the Great American Smokeout began The Smokeout event has helped dramatically change Americans’ attitudes about smoking. These changes have led to community programs and smokefree laws that are now saving lives in many states. Annual Great American Smokeout events began in the 1970s, when smoking and secondhand smoke were commonplace. The idea for the Great American Smokeout grew from a 1970 event in Randolph, Mass., at which Arthur P. Mullaney asked people to give up cigarettes for a day and donate the money they would have spent on cigarettes to a high school scholarship fund. The idea caught on, and on

Nov. 18, 1976, the California Division of the American Cancer Society got nearly one million smokers to quit for the day. That California event marked the first Great American Smokeout, and the Society took the program nationwide in 1977. Since then, there have been dramatic changes in the way society views tobacco advertising and tobacco use. Many public places and work areas are now smoke-free – this protects non-smokers and supports smokers who want to quit. Telephone stop-smoking hotlines are an easy-to-use resource, and they are available in all 50 states. Call ACS at (800) 227-2345 to get more information on quitting tobacco and to find telephone counseling or other support in your area.

Quitting smoking? Naval Hospital Pensacola can help From Naval Hospital Pensacola

Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP) Readiness Center provides individual and group tobacco cessation classes for those desiring to quit tobacco for good. With the Great American Smokeout 2014 right around the corner, it’s a good time to make that commitment – the commitment to quit. Tobacco use is still a large culprit in the leading cause of death among the U.S. population. Health risks

Jokes & Groaners Smoking isn’t funny, but ... Nicotine patches are great. Stick one over each eye and you can’t find your cigarettes. – author unknown Why do drug stores make sick people walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front? Overheard: “You know, lady, you don’t actually smoke. The cigarette does all the smoking – you are just the sucker.” “Tobacco drieth the brain, dimmeth the sight, vitiateth the smell, hurteth the stomach, destroyeth the concoction, disturbeth the humors and spirits, corrupteth the breath, induceth a trembling of the limbs, exsiccateth the windpipe, lungs, and liver, annoyeth the milt, scorcheth the heart and causeth the blood to be adjusted.” – Tobias Venner, (1577-1660) “The tobacco industry is finally going on record acknowledging the dangers of smoking. But back in my day, all we would admit was: ‘Smoking is known to cause ashtray residue.’ ” – Kent Salem, former tobacco lobbyist

Film fest focuses on Japan Event is part of Foo Foo Festival Story, photo from Japan-American Society of Northwest Florida

As part of Pensacola’s inaugural Foo Foo Festival, the Japan-America Society of Northwest Florida is presenting the 2014 Japanese Film Festival starting today, Nov. 14, through Nov. 16. Films will be at a different venue each day and will showcase a different aspect of contemporary Japanese cinema. Admission is free on all three days. With seven movies screened over three days, film buffs and fans of Japanese culture will have plenty to enjoy. The venue for today, Nov. 14, is the Mainstage Theater of the Pensacola Cultural Center, 400 South Jefferson St. The evening’s films are “Why Don’t You Play In Hell?” and “Love Hotel.” “Why Don’t You Play In Hell?” is a bloody, comic ode to yakuza gangster movies and 35mm filmmaking. “Love Hotel” is a documentary about the short-term hotels used for romantic encounters in Japan. Both movies are for a grown-up audience. Attendees can purchase optional wristbands for $20 (or $5 for society members) for reserved seating and heavy hors d’oeuvres provided by restaurant Nom Sushi Izakaya.

The venue for tomorrow, Nov. 15, is the West Florida Public Library’s main branch and the animated features “Wolf Children,” “A Letter to Momo” and “Patema Inverted” are on the schedule. “Wolf Children” (PG) tells the story of a young woman who falls in love with a werewolf and their two children. “A Letter to Momo” (PG) is about a grieving girl and a trio of spirits who help her understand a letter from her deceased father. “Patema Inverted” (PG-13) is a sci-fi adventure about a boy and girl with opposite gravities trying to discover the secret of their upside-down world. The day also will include activities for children to celebrate the Japanese festival “Shichi-Go-San” (literally 7-5-3). The venue for Nov. 16 is the Tree House Cinema in Gulf Breeze and films are “Uzumasa Limelight” and “Unforgiven.” “Uzumasa Limelight” follows an aging samurai stuntman, who wants to teach his craft to a young apprentice. “Unforgiven” is a remake of the 1992 Clint Eastwood movie. Ken stars Watanabe in the Eastwood role. In between the movies, Dr. Charles Exley from the University of Pittsburgh will give a presentation on Japanese cinema.
