This holiday season, avoid FOG hazards From Jim Roberts ECUA

Cooking a turkey? Love gravy? This holiday season, and every day of the year, the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) urges residents to put your sewer lines on a fat-free diet and be careful when disposing of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) after cooking. When grease is washed down the sink it cools and sticks to the inside lining of sewer pipes. Avoid this by never pouring FOG down the sink or toilet. On a daily basis, the ECUA wages a war against FOG, from entering into the wastewater collection and treatment systems. If not disposed of properly, the waste can result in an accumulation of residue, which can potentially cause blockages and decreases pipe capacity. As these blockages build, sewer lines can become clogged and back up into homes and businesses, especially restaurants, causing an unsightly and unsanitary situation. “When cooking during the holiday’s, place your grease in a container, let it harden, then dispose of it in your garbage,” Gabriel Brown, ECUA environmental program development specialist recommends. “If you have children or pets, and hot grease may be dangerous, freeze the grease in the freezer, and then toss it in the garbage.” Although the terms “oil” and “grease” are often used interchangeably, they are different substances. Grease is typically a solid white residue left in a pan after frying bacon or cooking other meats. Oil, such as vegetable oil, is typically a liquid at room temperature. The popular trend of frying a whole turkey in an outdoor fryer for Thanksgiving or Christmas can result in about 20 gallons of used cooking oil. Fryer oil is not the only source of increased FOG going to sewers during the holidays. Many pre-prepared foods and food mixes contain some kind of fat, oil or grease. Salad dressings, butter, dairy products, even baked goods contain FOG. To keep FOG out of sewers, the ECUA suggests scraping all food scraps from pots, pans, cooking utensils and dishes into the trash before washing or rinsing dishes. In the spirit of sustainability, the ECUA asks residents to dispose of excess grease and fat by adhering to the following methods when disposing of cooking products: •Never pour FOG down the drain, sink or garbage disposal. • Pour FOG into jars, cans, and plastic tubs. Let contents cool and solidify. When the container is full, throw away with your trash. • Mix cooking oil with an absorbent material such as cat litter or coffee grounds, place in a container (lid securely fastened) for disposal with your trash. • For greasy pans, pour off the grease into a container, and use a paper towel to wipe out the remaining grease in the pan prior to washing. • Store the container in the freezer, which will keep the grease solid, and pull it out whenever you have fats, oils and grease to dispose of. When it gets full, dump the whole container into the trash. The ECUA is aggressively working toward improving its environmental impact. Local business and residential customers are being encouraged to create a clean and safe environment through the FOG Education Program.

NSC safety experts offer Thanksgiving driving tips By April Phillips Naval Safety Center Public Affairs

Naval Safety Center (NSC) traffic safety experts offer advice for staying safe on the roads over the holiday weekend. The American Automobile Association is reporting that nearly 40 million Americans will pile into the family car and travel 50 or more miles from home to celebrate Thanksgiving. Some of those travelers will be Sailors and their families, taking advantage of the long weekend to spend time with loved ones. Unfortunately, higher traffic volumes, combined with fatigue that’s often a fact of life during a busy holiday weekend, increase the potential for highway mishaps, said Dan Dray, a traffic safety specialist at the Naval Safety Center. He and colleague Mike Borkowski say proper planning is the best way to manage highway risk. “Check your route in advance, be aware of weather conditions and prepare your vehicle,” said Borkowski. Getting the vehicle ready includes ensuring proper pre-

ventive maintenance and checking the tires’ air pressure and tread depth, said Borkowski. Dray, a native of Wisconsin, said drivers who are heading up north on their travels should also prepare for winter weather. “You should always have emergency equipment in your trunk, including flares, a blanket, a shovel and some bottled water and non-perishable food,” said Dray. Even if weather isn’t a factor, nearly everyone hitting the roads for Thanksgiving will experience heavy traffic and long delays. This can be an unwelcome strain on already frazzled nerves, but

‘Angel Tree’ project at NEX

the experts say staying calm is important behind the wheel. One way to preempt the effect of stressful road conditions is to figure delays into the trip. “Just expect them and have patience. Know what your buttons are and don’t let other drivers push them,” said Borkowski. “And if you’re able to travel before of after the rush hour, that helps too.” Fatigue is another factor that leads to a large number of traffic accidents. “The minute you experience effects of fatigue such as yawning or feeling tired, you should immediately pull over and get some rest. A 30

minute nap will do wonders,” said Dray. The Naval Safety Center recommends driving during daylight hours as much as possible and planning 10 to 15 minute stops every two hours of the drive to rest and break up the monotony of the road. Another risk to be aware of while driving during the weekend is animal strikes. “Deer strikes are up all across the country,” said Borkowski. “People panic, but it’s best not to swerve. You and the animal are moving, so by the time you get to it, it will most likely have moved out of the path of your vehicle.”

Take steps to avoid problems with your landlord By Lt. James Mosimann Region Legal Service Office Southeast

When entering into a residential lease, both landlords and tenants alike hope that everything runs smoothly. While this is usually the case, sometimes problems can arise. The following are ways to protect yourself when entering into a residential lease: • Read your lease before you sign. Always read your lease in its entirety before signing. A lease might seem like a bunch of legal jargon, but remember, you will be bound by its terms. Are you required to have the carpet professionally cleaned before moving out? Do you have to keep up the lawn? Do you have to give notice when you move out? If so, how long – 14, 30, 60 days? What is the procedure for notifying your landlord about repairs? Taking time to review the lease before signing could save you a lot of time – and money – in the future. • Get everything in writing. Scenario: The lease says you must pay $40 a month for lawn service. You tell the landlord that you do not want this service. The landlord tells you not to worry about it because he/she will not charge you. “Just sign the lease and you’ll be good,” the landlord says. What should you do?

Landlord-tenant rules vary from state to state. Photo courtesy of Wikimedia Commons

Before signing anything, get the landlord’s promise in writing and make sure it is incorporated into the lease. All promises/agreements should be in writing. If an agreement is made in person or over the phone after you sign the lease, follow up with an e-mail confirming the details of the conversation. This is to avoid having to prove the existence of an oral agreement in court if a dispute arises. • Conduct a thorough inspection. Upon moving in, make sure you inspect your new place thoroughly. Take pictures, make a list of defects, and provide a copy of the list to your landlord immediately. This will prove that you are not responsible for pre-existing conditions. Similarly, upon moving out, be present during the final inspection and take pictures of the condition

in which you are leaving your place. If the inspector does not see any problems, make sure you get that in writing. • Check on security deposits. What does your lease say about security deposits? Is the pet deposit non-refundable? Under what conditions could the landlord retain the security deposit? Once you have moved out, the landlord is most likely required to return the security deposit or provide an itemized list of deductions for damages within a certain period of time. This requirement varies state by state. In Florida, your landlord has 15 days to return your deposit, or 30 days to give you written notice by certified mail explaining the amount they are keeping and why. If your landlord doesn’t give the required notice, they must return all of your deposit. If they do give you notice, you

then have 15 days to dispute the claim. Each state has different landlord/tenant rules. It is a good idea to be familiar with your state’s rules. • Military clause applies. The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) is a federal law that allows a servicemember to terminate a lease before its expiration date, but only after providing written notice and a copy of PCS orders to the landlord. Even if there is not a military clause in your lease, you are still protected under the SCRA. Under the SCRA, the termination date of your lease will be 30 days after the next payment is due. For example, if you give written notice Feb. 15 and you pay rent on the first of each month, then your termination date is no earlier than March 30. Some states have their own versions of the SCRA that give servicemembers additional protections; one of those states is Florida. In Florida, you can terminate a lease for a variety of reasons. The big ones are: you get PCS orders requiring you to move at least 35 miles away; you receive orders requiring you to move into government quarters; you become eligible to live in government quarters and opt to move into them; or you are released from active duty after having leased your place while on active duty and it is at least 35 miles from your home of record. If you qualify, in order to terminate your lease, give your landlord:

written notice, including a termination date that is at least 30 days after the date you deliver the notice to your landlord, and a copy of your orders or a letter signed by your commanding officer. Once you do this, your landlord must prorate any rent you pay to the termination date in your notice. Landlord-tenant law can be confusing. Should an issue arise, contact your closest Region Legal Service Office Southeast Legal Assistance Office. If you have a legal issue or question, you can contact the NAS Pensacola Region Legal Service Office at 161 Turner St., Bldg. 624, Suite B, second deck. The phone number is 452-3730.

MCPON releases ‘Zeroing in on Excellence’ initiative From Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy’s office

WASHINGTON (NNS) — Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) (AW/NAC) Mike D. Stevens released his “Zeroing in on Excellence” initiative in the form of four letters to the Navy chiefs’ mess earlier this month. The Zeroing in on Excellence initiative consists of three focus areas: developing leaders, good order and discipline, and controlling what we own. “Zeroing in on Excellence is a universal theme we can all apply in our respective positions,” said Stevens. “It does not distract from or add to existing individual roles and responsibilities — it provides a sturdy framework around which we can build sound, durable readiness.” In his letters, MCPON clearly and concisely outlined his thoughts on the overarching theme of Zeroing in on Excellence’ and how each of the three focus areas help create an environment where the Navy gets stronger. “I believe developing leaders, fostering good order and discipline and controlling what we own help us get precisely that type of environment, now and down the road,” said Stevens. “These are not single actions; they are deliberate mindsets that permeate our processes and procedures.” MCPON stated that his focus points could be powerful engines of influence, but assured the mess it is their commitment to this vision that would help the ideas within it “become a heightened part of our consciousness.”

“If we grab Zeroing in on Excellence’ and maintain a steady strain on the ideas it entails, we will have a positive impact on readiness and get after some of the issues tainting our Navy, including sexual assault, suicide, domestic violence and alcohol/drug abuse,” said Stevens. In MCPON’s letter on Zeroing in on Excellence: Developing Leaders, he discussed the importance of developing leaders through a combination of mentorship, practical experience and training. “Without competent leadership, even the most routine tasks can become difficult,” said Stevens. “If our Navy is going to continue climbing, then we as chief petty officers must always seek to increase our and our Sailors’ ability to lead.” MCPON talked about the solid inventory of quality leadership training available to the enlisted community and how that combined with routine, daily, personal interaction will foster the kind of leadership that is necessary to ensure our Navy’s continued success. MCPON’s letter, Zeroing in on Excellence: Good Order and Discipline, focused on the impact good order and discipline has on warfighting, readiness and mission accomplishment. “To me, it (good order and discipline is about establishing, sustaining and enforcing professional standards that set the condition for individual and unit success,” said Stevens. “Anything that interferes with or detracts from those conditions is contrary to good order and discipline.” MCPON stated that by and

large he believes we are doing well in this area, but there is always room for improvement. He emphasized chief petty officers own good order and discipline and every CPO, first and foremost, must set the conditions through personal example and integrity in their own actions. In September, he approached his leadership mess, a group of fleet, force and command master chiefs, asking them to speak with their messes and help pinpoint top areas where the CPO community could make positive and immediate impacts on good order and discipline. “After reviewing hundreds of responses, it became overwhelmingly clear that four areas stand out above all others,” said Stevens. “Leadership through personal

example; accountability commensurate with responsibility; clear, unambiguous and personal communication throughout the chain of command; and excellence in the things we have rather than continuously inventing new solutions.” Discussing distractions beyond our control, MCPON outlined the concept of control and influence within our own sphere in his letter, Zeroing in on Excellence: Controlling What We Own. “There are many things that you and I do own and control, including good order and discipline, technical training, maintenance/administrative production and the execution of orders,” said Stevens. “We also have the ability to control much of our own lives by becoming and remaining physically, mentally, morally,

and spiritually sound.” MCPON’s Zeroing in on Excellence letters lay the framework for individual chiefs’ messes and commands to work within, allowing them to take his guidance and determine how to best employ the initiative to their specific commands and messes in order to functionally and effectively support CNO’s Sailing Directions, build an environment where our entire Navy gets stronger, and follow the fundamental standard to work hard, stay out of trouble and be good and decent people.

Fleet commanders issue message to leaders on conduct From U.S. Pacific Fleet PAO

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (NNS) — The commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and the commander of U.S. Fleet Forces recently released a “personal for” (P4) message to leaders under their purview to address how poor judgment and destructive behavior by Navy personnel is unacceptable and negatively impacting warfighting readiness. In the message, Adm. Cecil D. Haney, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, and Adm. William E. Gortney, commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Command, directed commanders to get more actively involved in preventing destructive behavior by ensuring their Sailors are aware of, and abide by, the rules of conduct established by the “Navy Ethos.” The goal is that every Sailor, down to the deckplate level, makes a commitment to recognize potential prob-

lems and have the courage to intervene before bad behavior occurs. “It is the responsibility of every commander to make sure their Sailors are properly representing the U.S. Navy regardless of where they are or what they are doing,” the message read. There were 496 sexual assaults reported in fiscal 2012, more than half involving alcohol. Because of these types of incidents, the Navy held a focused Sexual Assault Awareness campaign in April during National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The Navy has also implemented more training programs aimed at educating and encouraging Sailors to speak out against these crimes. Warfighting readiness is predicated on the relationships forged between Sailors and with partners. One instance of poor personal judgment in the workplace or on liberty can put these crucial relationships and readiness at risk.

“Our warfighting strategy relies in part on the willingness of host nations to provide our forces access to their ports,” Haney and Gortney wrote in their message. “To support this mission area, our Sailors must be exemplary ambassadors of our Navy and our nation.” In conjunction with the release of the P4 message, U.S. Pacific Fleet Master Chief John Minyard addressed Sailors from Navy Region Hawaii. During two separate calls with junior and senior enlisted personnel, Minyard emphasized the opportunity for all Sailors to be leaders in preventing shipmates from making poor decisions. “We have to own good order and discipline within our commands, at every level of leadership, and I believe we can do that,” Minyard said. “You need to know your people, you need to lead your people, and you need to be involved in their decisions.

“Every Sailor, E-1 to O-10, has a responsibility to look out for the safety of each other and to always hold themselves to the highest levels of accountability for their actions at home and abroad,” he said. “If we start having the moral courage to step in and stop destructive behavior before it occurs, we can eliminate these incidents.” The admirals closed with that for 237 years the U.S. Navy has been a global force for good and that our conduct shapes our ability to posture forces forward, to be ready, and to fight and win when required. “We must strive to eradicate sexual assaults and other destructive behavior by identifying problems and intervening early,” they wrote. “Respect for others is fundamental to our character and part of our ethos.” For more information on the P4 message, go to www.navy.mil, www.facebook.com/usnavy or www.twitter.com/usnavy.

Mission Nutrition: Keeping Sailors on course By MCC Monique K. Hilley Commander, Navy Installations Command Public Affairs

WA S H I N G T O N (NNS) – With fitness failure discharges up 40 percent and the Navy continuing to increase its focus on physical readiness, it is more important than ever for a Sailor to ensure they are maintaining their physical condition through a lifestyle of fitness and nutrition. The times of Sailors being able to get by passing the physical readiness test (PRT) and getting a waiver for the body composition assessment (BCA) are long gone. Also long gone are the visuals of a gaggle of chubby Sailors out running along the waterfront in whatever clothes they threw on that morning, sweating heavily and breathing even more heavily, as they finish their mandatory mile and a half for the second time that year. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus has made physical fitness one of the key components of his 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative. There is a laser-sharp focus on current PRT regulations, frequency and type of command fitness sessions, and Navy resources available to provide Sailors with the information they need to maintain peak physical readiness both at sea and

ashore. This information is provided through two invaluable tools offered by Commander, Navy Installations Command's (CNIC) Navy Fitness Program. Both the Mission Nutrition course and the Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling Series (NOFFS) offer Sailors information in a classroom setting, as well as an individually tailored program to put that knowledge to use in their daily lives. In this case, knowledge is power. By fueling properly, Sailors will increase their fitness capabilities and will be far more likely to reach their overall physical readiness goals. Mission Nutrition is a standardized, sciencebased nutrition education workshop designed to educate Sailors, family members and retirees on nutrition topics that affect them including obesity, the impact of sedentary lifestyles, weight gain prevention and weight loss, eating for optimal health and performance, mindless and emotional eating, fad diets, supplements, eating on the go, performance nutrition, meal planning, grocery shopping strategies and food preparation safety. “Being a former Sailor, I feel this course provides relevant and applicable information for the Sailor and their families to use in a variety of situations.

The fiveday CFL certification course consists of training on conducting the Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) test, injury preventions, safety and emergency response, nutrition education and physical readiness information management systems (PRIMS).

Whether Sailors are looking to improve their performance, overall health, trying to lose weight, become a better food shopper, or simply trying to be more educated in nutrition, this course has it covered,” said Nicholas Aures, CNIC Navy fitness performance enhancement dietitian. CNIC offers Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) fitness specialists and culinary specialists a four-day facilitator course that provides facilitators with increased knowledge and skills to teach their installation population. The facilitators’ course is offered twice a year by Aures, a registered dietitian

and certified strength and conditioning specialist who joined Navy Fitness as the performance enhancement dietitian in June 2012. Mission Nutrition is offered to Sailors, family members and retirees through certified mission nutrition instructors at Navy fitness centers worldwide. Currently, there are more than 100 certified instructors at 55 different bases within the 12 Navy Regions. The 2008 DoD Survey of Health Related Behaviors Among Active Duty Military Personnel states that 60 percent of all active-duty service members are classified as over-

weight. It goes further to state that 62 percent of all Sailors are considered overweight, with 14 percent of those considered obese. Mission Nutrition is working to reverse the growing trend of overweight and obese Sailors through education and awareness. Faced with the increased crackdown on physical readiness standards and a push to lose weight or be discharged from the military, many Sailors are looking for quick weight loss methods, many of which can be harmful or even fatal. Many for-profit fitness

companies, such as CrossFit, P90X, Insanity, Gym Jones and others, add scientifically unproven nutrition programs to their offerings to seemingly increase the value of their product. As a result, many Sailors and family members seek information from companies who market potentially harmful dietary supplements, fad diets, and other weight loss products. “In contrast, Mission Nutrition gives Sailors the knowledge and tools to make their own decisions on a variety of nutrition topics,” said Aures. “It also concentrates on forming a number of healthy habits that can be sustained throughout their lifetime. With so many programs charging fees for information that is far too often inaccurate, Mission Nutrition provides an abundance of reliable resources for the Sailor to utilize free of charge.” All Mission Nutrition course attendees receive a certificate and a workbook to continue to work on their nutrition goals long after completing the course. They also receive information on many resources which anyone can access, including the Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System, which includes a Virtual Trainer and Virtual Meal Builder. NOFFS is available at www. navyfitness.org/ noffs.

NASWF works year-round to save on energy costs From NASWF PAO

Naval Air Station Whiting Field, along with the rest of the Department of Defense and the nation, observed Energy Action Month last month as part of the base’s year round strategy to conserve precious energy resources. NAS Whiting Field, with help from all its tenant commands, has succeeded in reducing its energy footprint significantly in the past 18 months and will endeavor to continue those gains well into the future. With a presidential proclamation Oct. 4, President Barack Obama changed the name of what had been Energy Awareness Month to Energy Action Month to emphasize the need to be proactive in the way our nation produces and consumes energy. “… we must also harness our greatest natural resource — the creativity, drive, and entrepreneurial spirit of the American people. Across our country, scientists and engineers are laying the groundwork for the next big energy breakthrough, farmers across rural America are producing homegrown fuels, stu-

dents are promoting conservation in their communities, and autoworkers are manufacturing the next generation of fuelefficient cars. If we continue to invest in American potential, I am confident that new plants and factories will dot our landscape and new energy will power our future,” he stated. In that same spirit, NAS Whiting Field and the branch Naval Facilities Engineering Command office on site can point to many of their own success stories in regards to energy usage. In the past 18 months, this team has made significant progress in decreasing energy and water consumption on the station. The base’s overall energy footprint has been reduced by 10 percent – helping to reduce annual electricity costs by $250,000. Peak demand energy, the most expensive, has decreased by 5 percent. These breakthroughs were made possible by utilizing smart building energy monitors and through the vigilance of personnel in when and how they use energy intensive equipment. Additionally, several NAS Whiting Field proj-

ects emerged from recent facility energy audits. The largest of these is a Utility

direct digital controls for heating and air conditioning systems, chiller compressor retrofits, energy efficient lighting in office and hangar spaces as well as installing high efficiency plumbing fixtures. Other projects include an effort to install more than 8,000 square feet of solar window film in the two bachelor quarters, which is expected to net a savings of more than $10,000 per year. HVAC upgrades for the gymnasium along with solar window film were recently completed and should net another $8,000 in savings annually. Utility usage has also

benefitted greatly from the two roof-top solar photovoltaic systems installed on two squadron training buildings. Consisting of more than 1,200 solar panels, these units provide enough energy to power 32 homes each year. “I would like to applaud everyone on the base for their remarkable efforts as we continue to decrease our consumption and cost,” said Reggie Parker, utilities and energy manager for the base. “We’ve done a lot, but we have more to do.” More work is on the horizon as future efforts like replacing all exterior lights at the BEQs, retrofitting all parking and roadway lights with LED fixtures and upgrading the boilers in various buildings are scheduled, but not yet funded. It is about a continuous process of improving the efficiency of the equipment, the mindset of base personnel and the way the commands use energy. The continuing work NAS Whiting Field is put-

Su p p o r t Ou r Tro o p s

ting forth in the awareness and reduction of energy usage is in line with initiatives instituted at the highest levels of command. “Energy conservation efforts will continue to be a major factor in the way the Navy operates. It is a guiding tenet that will affect the Navy’s future policies and practices,” said Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. “Energy reform must inform and shape every decision we make during research, development, and procurement of our systems, during training operations, and during daily life aboard ship, on base and in our homes. It requires the efforts of every Sailor and Marine from the newest seaman recruits and privates to our admirals and generals,” he said. “With a consolidated Navy and Marine Corps effort, we will reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, reduce our tactical and strategic vulnerabilities and we will make the Department of the Navy a government leader in energy reform.”

GOSPORT A Thanksgiving proclamation by the president of the United States of America – George Washington, 1789 From the Smithsonian Institution

W

hereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and whereas both houses of Congress have by their Joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.” Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the people of these states to the service of that great and glorious being, who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be – that we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation – for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war-– for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed – for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us. And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and ruler of nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions – to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually – to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed – to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord – to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us – and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best. Given under my hand at the city of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

Thanksgiving From Local Harvests to National Holiday

From http://www.si.edu

Most Americans are familiar with the Pilgrim’s Thanksgiving feast of 1621, but few realize that it was not the first festival of its kind in North America. Long before Europeans set foot in the Americas, native peoples sought to ensure a good harvest with dances and rituals such as the “Green Corn Dance” of the Cherokees. The first Thanksgiving service known to be held by Europeans in North America occurred on May 27, 1578, in Newfoundland, although earlier church-type services were probably held by Spaniards in La Florida. However, for British New England, some historians believe that the Popham Colony in Maine conducted a Thanksgiving service in 1607. In the same year, Jamestown Colonists gave thanks for their safe arrival, and another service was held in 1610 when a supply ship arrived after a harsh winter. Berkeley Hundred (later Berkeley Plantation) settlers held a Thanksgiving service in accordance with their charter, which stated that the day of their arrival in Virginia should be observed yearly as a day of thanksgiving, but within a few years an Indian uprising ended further services. Thus British Colonists held several Thanksgiving services in America before the Pilgrims’ celebration in 1621. The Pilgrims, with a puritanical rejection of public religious display, held a non-religious Thanksgiving feast, aside from saying grace. In fact, they seem to have used the three days for feasting, playing games and even

drinking liquor. In 1623, the Pilgrims at Plymouth Plantation, Mass., held another day of Thanksgiving. As a drought was destroying their crops, Colonists prayed and fasted for relief; the rains came a few days later. And not long after, Capt. Miles Standish arrived with staples and news that a Dutch supply ship was on its way. Because of all this good fortune, Colonists held a day of Thanksgiving and prayer on June 30. This 1623 festival appears to have been the origin of our Thanksgiving Day because it combined a religious and social celebration. Festivals of Thanksgiving were observed sporadically on a local level for more than 150 years. They tended to be autumn harvest celebrations. But in 1789, Elias Boudinot of Massachusetts, member of the House of Representatives, moved that a day of “Thanksgiving” be held to thank God for giving the American people the opportunity to create a Constitution to preserve their hardwon freedoms. A congressional joint committee approved the motion, and informed President George Washington. On Oct. 3, 1789, the president proclaimed that the people of the United States observe “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer” on Thursday, Nov. 26. The next three presidents proclaimed, at most, two days of thanksgiving sometime during their terms of office, either on their own initiative or at the request of a joint resolution of Congress. One exception was Thomas Jefferson, who believed it was a conflict of church and state to require the American people hold a day of prayer and thanksgiving.

Gosling Games Color Me ‘Tom Turkey’

President James Madison proclaimed a day of Thanksgiving to be held on April 13, 1815, the last such proclamation issued by a president until Abraham Lincoln did so in 1862. Most of the credit for the establishment of an annual Thanksgiving holiday may be given to Sarah Josepha Hale. Editor of Ladies Magazine and Godey’s Lady’s Book, she began to agitate for such a day in 1827 by printing articles in the magazines. She also published stories and recipes, and wrote scores of letters to governors, senators and presidents. After 36 years of crusading, she won her battle. On Oct. 3, 1863, buoyed by the Union victory at Gettysburg, President Lincoln proclaimed that Nov. 26, would be a national Thanksgiving Day, to be observed every year on the fourth Thursday of November. Only twice has a president changed the day of observation. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, in order to give Depression-era merchants more selling days before Christmas, assigned the third Thursday to be Thanksgiving Day in 1939 and 1940. But he was met with popular resistance, largely because the change required rescheduling Thanksgiving Day events such as football games and parades. In 1941, a congressional joint resolution officially set the fourth Thursday of November as a national holiday for Thanksgiving. Today, Thanksgiving is a time when many families come together, and many churches are open for special services. We have both Native Americans and immigrants to thank for the opportunity to observe a day of thanksgiving.

CID announces domain Sailor of the Year By NMITC Public Affairs

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The Commanding Officer of the Center for Information Dominance (CID) Capt. Susan K. Cerovsky announced the CID domain Sailor of the Year (SoY) Oct. 26. IS1(IDW/SW/AW) Johnetta L. Heckard, an “A” school and “C” school intelligence specialist (IS) instructor at Navy and Marine Corps Intelligence Training Center (NMITC), based at Dam Neck, Va., is the CID domain-wide SoY. She will now move on to the next level of competition where she will represent CID for consideration as the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) 2012 Sailor of the Year. Heckard said she was surprised and humbled at being selected as the CID domain SoY. “I was definitely shocked to hear I won CID Sailor of the Year,” Heckard said. “I definitely didn’t see that coming.” She credited her success in the Navy to her mentors and shipmates, and especially to her mother, who gave her the motivation to always strive to seek excellence. “My success has really been a team effort, which includes the chiefs mess, my fellow instructors, our students and the Navy for giving me so many training opportunities,” Heckard said. “I pretty much get all my motivation from my mom, who wanted me to always do the right thing and to always take care of business.” NMITC Commanding Officer Capt. William Kotheimer Jr. had high praise for the hard-charging first class petty officer whom he selected as the NMITC

IS1 (IDW/SW/AW) Johnetta L. Heckard

SoY. “This represents the hard work and dedication of Petty Officer Heckard as well as all those that have supported her,” Kotheimer said. Heckard, a native of Toledo, Ohio, joined the Navy through the Delayed Entry Program and completed basic training at Recruit Training Command at Great Lakes, Ill., in December 2002. Heckard then reported to the USS Peleliu (LHA 5), homeported in San Diego, Calif., in January 2003 as an undesignated seaman. She completed all required qualifications, including enlisted surface warfare specialist (ESWS) and enlisted aviation warfare specialist (EAWS) qualification becoming the first of two dual-qualified undesignated seamen on Peleliu, and later advanced to personnel support specialist third class.

Heckard later transferred to Personnel Support Detachment (PSD) Afloat West in San Diego, where she worked as a customer service clerk, separations clerk and transfers clerk. While at PSD she submitted a package to cross rate to intelligence specialist and in April 2008 attended Intelligence Specialist Class “A” and “C” schools at NMITC. After graduating in October 2008 she reported to USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), homeported in San Diego. While there, Heckard advanced to intelligence specialist second class, and also attended Navy Career Counselor School. In June 2010, she was recognized as the Junior Sailor of Quarter and Junior Sailor of the Year. In May 2011, she reported to NMITC. NMITC delivers entry-level, midcareer and advanced all-source naval intelligence training for enlisted and officer students directly supporting fleet, Navy-Marine Corps team, and intelligence community requirements for trained-and-ready intelligence professionals, to achieve decision superiority. In addition to her instructor duties, Heckard is the command leading petty officer and the assistant command fitness leader (ACFL). As an instructor, she led the successful training of 195 students executing 5,700 hours of intelligence instruction. Additionally, as the ACFL Heckard led more than 150 hours of physical training resulting in a physical readiness test pass rate of 98 percent. As the Petty Officer Indoctrination Program coordinator, Heckard led a cadre of 60 instructors through the training program. Under her guidance, the program trained 469 prospective third

class petty officers within a six-month period. Her involvement in this program increased the level of readiness for 99 percent of accession level intelligence specialists for advancement to the next rank. “I’m thankful for the experience; it’s been amazing,” Heckard said. “If I could offer my shipmates any advice it would be keep your nose to the grindstone, stay positive, and stay away from negative people.” Former Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Elmo Zumwalt and former Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy John Whittet established the SoY program in 1972 to recognize the best allaround Sailors from the ranks of E-4 through E-6. Within 10 years, the Sailor of the Year program was expanded to include the shore establishment and Navy Reserve Sailors. “By her unswerving determination, wise judgment and complete dedication to duty, Petty Officer Heckard reflected credit upon herself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States naval service and the true spirit of the Sailor of the Year program,” Kotheimer said. CID is the Navy’s Learning Center that leads, manages and delivers Navy and joint force training in information operations, information warfare, information technology, cryptology and intelligence. With a staff of nearly 1,300 military, civilian and contracted staff members, CID oversees the development and administration of more than 226 courses at four commands, two detachments and 14 learning sites throughout the United States and in Japan. CID provides training for approximately 24,000 members of the U.S. armed services and allied forces each year.

Plan to have some fun for the holidays From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – Part of navigating through the uncertainty of holiday stress is taking control of what you can by planning for time together. Don’t let “mandatory fun” get between you, your family or friends. Think twice before you commit to school programs or holiday parties. “The holidays offers the potential for some quality family time but it easy to get overcommitted and come out of the holiday period needing an additional ‘break,’ ” said James Baker, head, Fleet Readiness Programs, Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC). “To avoid that, Sailors

and their families are encouraged to schedule some fun by using Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) services to gain access to a wide variety of activities and events at significantly reduced prices.” Once holiday leave periods have been identified, a visit to the MWR Information, Tickets and Travel (ITT) office will provide you with information about what is available. Giving the family an activity they can look forward to doesn’t have to break the bank. Planning ahead and including family members in the decision will help ensure that everyone enjoys the holidays. “Depending on your location, you can visit your ITT office for discounted tickets on area attrac-

tions, hotels, sporting events, concerts, cruises, tours and special events,” Baker said. “Navy Gateway Inns and Suites (NGIS) and MWR cabins or cottages can offer affordable lodging when commercial lodging rates are priced for peak season. A list is available at the main MWR website, navymwr.org. “MWR is there for you. Take advantage of what it has to offer, whether you are planning to stay in the barracks, hang out with friends or take the family on a trip,” Baker said. “MWR services can help you take the stress out of planning and put the fun back into the holidays.” For details on NAS Pensacola MWR events and activities, go to www.naspensacola-mwr.com.

Rolin, said in a November newsletter. The Kerretv Cuko (building of learning) Poarch Band of Creek Indian Museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. during both days of the

pow wow. The Poarch Creek Indians are descendents of a segment of the original Creek Nation, which once covered almost all of Alabama and Georgia. Unlike many eastern Indian tribes, the Poarch Creeks were not removed from their tribal lands and have lived together for almost 200 years in and around the reservation. The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is the only federally recognized Indian tribe in Alabama, operating as a sovereign nation with its own system of government and bylaws.
