Sailors sworn in as American citizens By Lt. Cmdr. Troy Sallee NATTC PAO
Students assigned to Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) became United States citizens during a naturalization ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum Nov. 13. During the ceremony 67 citizen candidates, including nine NATTC Sailors, swore allegiance to and became citizens of the United States. This event was different from most other citizenship ceremonies because several of the new American citizens had already sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States when they became U.S. Navy Sailors. “Many people are surprised to learn that American citizenship is not a prerequisite to joining the American armed forces. In fact, for many service members, the armed forces are a means to obtaining citizenship,” said Capt. Alan Dean, NATTC’s commanding officer. AA Alen Samardzic, originally from Croatia, is a student

in NATTC’s Aviation Professional Apprentice Career Track (APACT) Course. “It was important for me to become a citizen because I have lived here pretty much my whole life, and it’s all I know,” said Samardzic. “I want to take ad-
vantage of everything the U.S. has to offer – military service, freedom and everything else.” Samardzic and his parents moved from Bosnia to Croatia, and ultimately the United States when he was 2 years old to escape the conflict in Bosnia. He
grew up in Des Moines, Iowa, and joined the Navy mostly to take advantage of the travel and the benefits. He also admits, though, that he has always wanted to be in the military and the path to citizenship was a small consideration.
“My dream is to one day become an officer, and possibly a pilot,” he said. “I would like to ultimately become one of the Blue Angels.” Another NATTC APACT student who became a citizen was AA Arturo Gourentchik. He was born in Peru and moved to Newark, Del., when he was 8. “I joined the U.S. Navy to travel and see new things, but also because I plan to take advantage of tuition assistance and the GI bill to finish my civil engineering degree,” said Gourentchik. “I would have become a citizen anyway, but when you are in the military the process is shorter by at least several months.” Looking for a better life and future, AN Fel Bellaflor moved to the United States from the Philippines last year. He worked in a warehouse filling, clearing and packaging containers for seven months until he could go to boot camp. He was disappointed that the job did not have any benefits.

Mustin Beach gets sand replenishment makeover From NASP Navy Natural Resources
Mustin Beach, near the Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Mustin Beach Club, has received a makeover. Ten years of disappearing sand was replaced in recent months during a project completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in conjunction with NASP and the U.S. Coast Guard. “This project involved moving more than 41,000 cubic yards of beach sand that had built up on the side of the Coast Guard boat basin and transporting the sand to Mustin Beach, where more than 200 feet of sand had eroded due to storm activity,” said Mike Malsom, project manager and biologist for the Mobile District Corps of Engineers. The project, officially termed “U.S. Coast Guard Pensacola Sand Bypass Project” was initially planned more
and Ted Bridis, U.S. Coast Guard Miami Civil Engineering Unit. The sand that had accumulated near the Coast Guard Station was causing a problem by spilling over into the boat basin, while the eroded area along nearby Mustin Beach needed sand. The decision was made to physically move the sand to Mustin Beach. Malsom and the Corps of Engineers team worked with the Coast Guard to plan the project and to obtain funding and permits. The actual work took a month to complete, resulting in four acres of a “new” white sandy shoreline at Mustin Beach. “The project was a great team effort involving a lot of Re-purposed sand has been deposited on a beach area dedicated people and the base is glad to get Mustin Beach near the Mustin Beach Club onboard NAS Pensacola. back to its pre-hurricane width,” Gibson said. “Mustin Photo from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Beach is part of the base’s Adopt-A-Beach program and than five years ago during discussions between Mark the (Naval Hospital Pensacola) Second Class Association Gibson, Navy Natural Resources manager Pensacola, will now have a full new beach to monitor for cleanup.”

“I joined the Navy for the benefits, the shorter timeframe to citizenship and the opportunity to finish college,” he said. The Honorable M. Casey Rodgers, chief district judge for the Northern District of Florida, presided over the special court session held at the museum. During the ceremony, each citizen candidate provided their name and country of origin. Randall Hensel, assistant United States Attorney, made a motion for admission to the court that the candidates be sworn-in as American citizens. Rodgers then administered the oath of allegiance to the candidates. The candidates swore the citizenship oath, similar to the oath of enlistment in the Navy, where they renounced allegiance and ties to previous states and powers, swore to support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and to bear arms when required. The new citizens then recited the Pledge of Allegiance along with the attending guests and listened to the “Star Spangled Banner.” AN Paulo Bermudez, an APACT student originally from Colombia, addressed the audience, speaking about his journey to service and citizenship. He spoke about one of his teachers who was a Vietnam War veteran, and how he taught and personified the values of respect, camaraderie and organization. “Mr. Weinstein was the first to spark my interest in joining the armed forces,” Bermudez said. Capt. Keith Hoskins, the commanding officer of Naval Air Station Pensacola, was the guest speaker. Hoskins reminded each new citizen of the importance of their citizenship, as well as what the Pledge of Allegiance now means to each of them. Hoskins then charged them to make four choices. “As new citizens, choose to not be sidelined but be involved and vote; be informed of the issues that affect your way of life; seek out opportunities to get involved and choose to tell your story,” he said. AN Bei Gong moved from China to the U.S. in 2012 with her husband, Xiangwen, and her 6year-old daughter, Wang. She was excited about her new citizenship and her family’s future in America, however, she remarked that there was one thing she really misses since leaving China. “I especially miss Chinese food,” she said. “I hope to be assigned to a base with a Chinese restaurant nearby.” Once the ceremony was complete, the students headed back to the training center to continue preparing for their service in the fleet. For more than 70 years, NATTC has been providing training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy, Marine and international students annually. The majority of the student body is comprised of enlisted personnel attending “A” schools, where they gain the knowledge and skills required to perform in the fleet as technicians at the apprentice level. Advanced schools provide higher-level technical knowledge for senior petty officers, and specialty schools offer specific skills not particular to any one rating, such as airman apprentice training, maintenance, personal financial management and shipboard aircraft firefighting. NATTC also conducts technical training for officers in aviation fuels, carrier air traffic control center operations, aircraft launch and recovery equipment, shipboard aircraft fire fighting and amphibious air traffic control center operations.

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.
In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Naval Air Station Pensacola, senior graphic design students at Pensacola State College have created an exhibit, “The Journey: Then, Now, Tomorrow,” for display at the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard NAS Pensacola Nov. 17-Dec. 31. The museum is free and open to the public 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day. The public is also invited to meet the artists at a reception beginning at 9:45 a.m. today, Nov. 21, at the museum.
The exhibit focuses on a century of accomplishments at NAS Pensacola and showcases the students’ multifaceted interests in typography, graphic design, photography, digital art, multimedia and fine art. Students featured in the show are Brad Barker, Joe Chisenall, Erin Cook, Megan Fuller, Jennifer Heriot, Ashley Ritchie and Ashley Spencer.

When the candy’s gone, the gobble gauntlet begins By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
I’ll admit it. It was a calculated move. Two weeks ago, I bought all the childen’s favorite candies. But, then I threw a bag of Almond Joys into the cart, knowing full well that the trick or treaters would leave them in the bowl, for me to enjoy. Later. In front of the television. With my feet up. Peeling back the little blue wrappers. Saving the bite with the almond for last. Night after night. Until they were all gone. Now, as I nibble the milk chocolate perimeter of the last coconut treat, I realize that I’ve been tricked. Again. This happens every year, as sure as the change in seasons, the shifting tides, and dryer lint. Mindlessly, we drift into these cyclical food-related events of life, and before we know it, there’s no escape. It all starts with the irresistible perils of fall, when we are inundated with warm donuts and fresh apple cider, spicy football wings and cold beer, and pumpkin spiced thisthat-and-the-other. We feel compelled to indulge our-

selves; after all, the season wouldn’t seem right without these traditional delicacies. But then, Halloween kicks it up a notch. Bam! When my children were young, they would race home from trick or treating and inventory their booty. After a few heated rounds of bartering, they would discard the “rejects” – any candy with weird nuts or unknown filling that they found objectionable. Ironically, these were the treats I loved the most. Now that my teenagers are too old for trick or treating, I’m still duped by the colorful Halloween displays. As if my body has been invaded by a sugar-seeking alien, I find myself buying the candy I want to eat while I tell everyone that “it’s for the kids, bless their little hearts.” When I’ve finished consuming all the leftover Halloween candy and reach my maximum level of personal disgust, I make a futile effort to “get healthy.” For a few days, maybe a week if I’m lucky, I cleanse myself of excess calories, believing naively that, this year, I will make it through the holiday season without gaining another 10 pounds.
bread mix, and those Frenchfried onion thingies that go on top of the green bean casserole. My refrigerator groans under the weight of sticks of butter, sweet potatoes, green beans, cranberries, onions, a 20-something pound turkey (go big or go home) and a jar of those miniature sweet pickles for the relish tray. Resistance is futile.
About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 20 years (and running). She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. Yeah, right.

On Thanksgiving Day, I cook for more than 20, and serve less than 10. For days after, we eat turkey noodle soup, turkey divan, hot turkey sandwiches, cold turkey sandwiches, turkey tetrazzini, turkey enchiladas and turkey potpie. When the turkey is gone, I officially surrender and start
wearing my fat jeans in anticipation of the holiday food frenzy to come. Helpless to avoid it, overeating becomes my job. Every day I get up, punch the clock, and belly up to the mandatory feast of the season. Over consumption reaches its pinnacle around Christmas, when, in our weakened state, we succumb to the cheese balls, spiral hams, eggnog, candy canes, hot cocoa, mixed nuts, red and green M&Ms and the cookies…. oh, the cookies. As my chins double, my inner dialogue attempts to justify the gluttony. “My belly button disappeared.” “That’s what bulky sweaters are for.” “There’s a roll on my back.” “Now it matches your front.” And inevitably, when I finally emerge from the gauntlet, bloated and dizzy, I admit to myself, “I’ve gained 10 pounds.” “Consider yourself lucky.

Assistant secretary of the Navy talks efficiency at Fleet Energy Training Forum Story, photo by MC1(SW/AW) John Smolinski Jax Air News Staff Writer
ACKSONVILLE, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; U.S. Fleet Forces Command hosted a Fleet Energy Training Forum for more than 270 senior leaders and command representatives from Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville (Jax), Naval Station (NS) Mayport and Naval Submarine Base (NSB) Kings Bay at Deweyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Ballroom aboard the installation Nov. 6. Featured speakers for the event included Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Energy, Installations and Environment), Dennis McGinn; Chief of Naval Operations, Director of Energy and Environmental Readiness (OpNav N45), Rear Adm. Kevin Slates; and U.S. Fleet Forces Command, Director of Maritime Headquarters, Rear Adm. Bradley Gehrke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This forum is to show how we are transitioning from a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;save energy if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attitude to a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;save energy unless you cannot,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? said Gehrke. Slates added that this event is a great opportunity to bring together all the different parts of our Navy community and highlight the importance of energy conservation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is all about improving our war fighting capability and our operational effectiveness,â&#x20AC;? said McGinn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is nothing that happens in our Navy and Marine Corps team that does not rely on energy. We have to continue to improve our energy efficiency,
so that we can be ready whenever the president calls on us.â&#x20AC;? McGinn stated that fuel consumption is one of the most important areas of interest for energy conservation. For aviation commands, looking for ways to cut fuel use is a top priority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at what we are doing in the P-8 program, for instance,â&#x20AC;? said Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 11 Capt. Sean Liedman, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have invested in training simulation which allows us to move a lot of our training out of the aircraft and into simulators. This has enabled us to burn less fuel, save on the maintenance of our aircraft and save energy and dollars all around.â&#x20AC;? Area commands are looking for innovative ways to improve daily operations without sacrificing the mission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I look for are win-win scenarios where we are conserving energy and also providing some other benefits,â&#x20AC;? said NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Roy Undersander.
Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Energy, Installations and Environment) Dennis McGinn addresses an audience of more than 270 senior leaders and command representatives during a Fleet Energy Training Forum aboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville Nov. 6.
â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, we have completed a water conservation project where we have rerouted all discharge water that used to go into the St. Johns River, and now we use it to water the grass areas, including the golf course. This has allowed us to turn off power to a well that has only one purpose ... to water the grass.â&#x20AC;? The forum consisted of morning sessions focused on issues such as how to change the operational energy culture; what is the vision, strategy and guidance of the secretary of the Navy; and how to train, execute and assess energy usage. Leaders of a variety of Navy warfare communities made presentations, including Naval Air Forces, Naval Surface Forces, Naval Expeditionary Combat Command, Military Sealift
Command, Submarine Forces, and Navy Region Southeast. The afternoon sessions consisted of breakout training with individual operational and shore commands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of the breakout sessions is a way to connect the producer of the policies to the consumers or operators,â&#x20AC;? said Joseph Murphy, deputy chief of staff, Fleet Installations and Environmental Readiness, U.S. Fleet Forces Command. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will enable individuals to get a chance to communicate each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs and hopefully get a better solution delivered to the fleet, rather than just something engineered in Washington that does not meet the needs of the waterfront.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a representative of Secretary Mabus,â&#x20AC;? said McGinn, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It
is absolutely essential that we get out here and talk to the fleet and understand what the energy challenges we face are and to look for opportunities to get direct feedback on the policies we set for the Department of the Navy in Washington.â&#x20AC;? As part of the forum, McGinn presented a Platinum Level Secretary of the Navy Energy Award to Naval Station Mayport and gold level awards to NAS Jacksonville and Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect us all to walk away from this forum, not satisfied that we got a check in the box for energy training,â&#x20AC;? said McGinn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But rather that people really think in different ways, armed with new knowledge, of how to be better energy warriors.â&#x20AC;?
Navy reaches out to energy industry leaders for innovative ideas for GTMO By Sue Brink NavFac Southeast Public Affairs Officer
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) Southeast hosted more than 100 energy experts and Navy leaders Nov. 5 in Jacksonville, Fla., to talk about a challenging energy project for Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The focus of this meeting was to hear from energy industry leaders on what creative ideas they could suggest to meet the needs of infrastructure upgrades needed at NS Guantanamo Bay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are here for an open dialogue today,â&#x20AC;? said Rear Adm. Mary Jackson, commander, Navy Region Southeast, as she welcomed everyone in attendance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of our installations are unique, but
Naval Station Guantanamo Bay is perhaps the most unique. With its remote setting and location within the U.S. Southern Command (SouthCom) area of responsibility, Guantanamo Bay must be completely self sufficient.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are thinking outside the box and looking for the experts to provide us creative solutions,â&#x20AC;? said NavFac Deputy Public Works Business Line Leader Capt. Kathryn Donovan to the contractors in attendance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not looking for a cookie cutter outcome. This is a very exciting opportunity that will be a long-term relationship with one of you.â&#x20AC;? Examples of projects include photovoltaic, waste to energy, energy efficient generator power and automated controls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot continue to do business the same way,â&#x20AC;? said Donovan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are
open to being creative, holistic and innovative, shockingly innovative, but we still need to look at economic payback and cash flow. It has to be economical in its life.â&#x20AC;? The Navy will not be specifying what they want, they want industry to make recommendations based on their knowledge and expertise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This may be the largest capital investment the Navy has made in many years to the infrastructure of one of its bases,â&#x20AC;? said Donovan. NS Guantanamo Bay is a constrained environment. Supplies are transported by barge, there is no outside support, the island supplies its own water, electricity and waste removal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Naval Station Guantanamo Bay is in a strategic location being the only U.S.

John Nettleton, NS Guantanamo Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commanding officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a storm safe haven situated on an active fault line and in the hurricane corridor.â&#x20AC;? Contractors looking at working in NS Guantanamo Bay will have many challenges and will need to plan way ahead. Compared to Jacksonville, things can be up to five times more expensive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normally, the Navy puts its requirements out for bid and reviews proposals based on criteria set for the individual project,â&#x20AC;? said Donovan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This time, we want to take a holistic look at how to best proceed.â&#x20AC;? The Navyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to improve NS Guantanamo Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure, be energy efficient and continue to meet mission requirements.

Diabetes: It’s not a sweet disease Story, photos by MC1 James Stenberg NHP assistant public affairs officer
ovember is Diabetes Awareness Month, and Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) has certified diabetes educators and experts to assist in helping beneficiaries understand diabetes. “Diabetes is a condition in which the body either isn’t producing insulin or isn’t using the insulin it does produce efficiently,” said Capt. Maureen Padden, commanding officer, NHP. Insulin removes the sugar (glucose) out of the blood stream and into the cells where it can be used for energy. It reacts with the blood cells and allows them to absorb the sugar. This reduces the glucose levels in the blood stream and keeps it within a healthy range. There are two main types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2.
Type 1 is an auto immune disease where the body has attacked the cells in the pancreas and they no longer produce insulin. Type 1 diabetes is also known as juvenile diabetes or childhood diabetes. Although a large number of type 1 diabetes patients develop it during childhood, it can develop in adults. “Type 1 diabetes is not preventable,” said Lt. Kristel Ramsay, department head, Internal Medicine. “Most people who develop type 1 are of normal weight and are otherwise healthy. Simply put, the person has lost their ability to produce
Diabetes is sometimes referred to as “the sweet disease” because of its relation to sugar in the blood stream.
Staff at Naval Hospital Pensacola participate in command wide physical training. Daily exercise, along with healthy eating habits, can lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
insulin.” Type 2 diabetes is an insulin resistant disease that can occur as people age. There are several contributing factors that can lead to type 2 diabetes including weight gain, a sedentary lifestyle and a family history of diabetes. With type 2 diabetes, the body is not responding to the insulin that the pancreas produces. This prevents the blood sugars from being within a healthy range. A common misconception is that someone with diabetes cannot eat sweets. In reality, people with diabetes can eat sweets, but have to monitor their blood sugar levels and limit the frequency and quantities of certain foods. “People can live a long and
healthy life with diabetes if it is properly controlled and monitored,” said Ramsay. “Having uncontrolled diabetes is the problem.” Uncontrolled diabetes is having diabetes with the blood sugar levels elevated. If the sugar levels stay elevated for a long period of time, it starts to do damage to the body. Over time, high blood glucose levels may hurt the eyes, kidneys, nerves or heart. Uncontrolled diabetes is the number one cause of non-traumatic lower extremity amputation and kidney failure leading to dialysis. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, from 1980 through 2011, the number of Americans with diagnosed diabetes has more than
tripled from 5.6 million to 20.9 million. “Diabetes is becoming an epidemic not only in America, but really all around the world,” said Padden. “By controlling weight gain, eating healthy and keeping an active lifestyle, we can reduce the number of new diabetes cases and control existing ones.” NHP offers Diabetes Education Classes on the third Monday and Tuesday of each month from 8 a.m. to noon. The classes are open to all TRICARE beneficiaries, plus a family member or support person.

TraWing-5 receives Meritorious Unit Commendation
TraWing-5 members and staff pause for a group photo; Commodore Col. Gary Kling and Rear Adm. Roy Kelley are at center with the Meritorious Unit Commendation. Story, photo by Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
The Chief of Naval Air Training presented the Training Air Wing Five (TraWing-5) staff with a Meritorious Unit Commendation Nov. 7 at NAS Whiting Field (NASWF). The award recognized the wing’s efforts during the T-34 to T-6 aircraft transition. The award is presented based on exceptionally meritorious conduct in providing an outstanding service to the military, and is signed by the Chief of Naval Operations for the Secretary of the Navy. Rear Adm. Roy Kelley reminded the staff of the difficulties involved in the transition between the two air-
craft due to the perpetual flight schedules at the training command. “When we do a transition, we do it in stride. Other units doing transitions get taken out of their rotations,” Kelley emphasized. “There was a lot of coordination and effort on your parts. Thank you for that.” Kelley presented the citation to Commodore, TraWing-5 Col. Gary Kling, who accepted on behalf of the staff. Kling stressed to the assembled TraWing-5 team that the transition to the T-6 marked a radical change in the way the squadrons operated from a safety, training, supply and administrative standpoint, and involved an increase in surge capacity. “You made this happen,” he said. “It was an example of pure teamwork, and that is what this award repre-
sents.” Throughout the almost three-year transition, TraWing-5 continued to meet or exceed Chief of Naval Aviation Training Command mission goals. The three fixed-wing, training squadrons flew 387,791 flight hours, which resulted in the safe completion of almost 1,200 fixed-wing student naval aviators. The wing accomplished this mission while balancing instructor qualifications in the new aircraft and surging flight capabilities to compensate for weather cancellations. “You were all pioneers to help us address the issues we did not foresee,” Kelley concluded. “We could have had challenges, but your thoroughness and foresight allowed us to be successful and safe. Congratulations on this award.”
Whiting Field raises awareness for domestic violence By Ens. Laurence Clemente NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
This October the nation celebrated Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Personnel aboard NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) were on hand to participate and increase awareness during this important month. At Whiting Field, the festivities were spearheaded by Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), particularly Pat Dillenback, NASWF’s family advocacy representative, who stressed awareness about this important topic. On Oct. 23, Fleet and Family Services hosted “Purple Thursday,” purple being the official color recognizing domestic violence awareness. According to Dillenback, “Purple Thursday is a light-hearted outreach opportu-
nity for a topic that is difficult to discuss.” Purple Thursday is a nationwide event that was observed for the first time this year at Whiting Field. This involved participants wearing purple and taking photos against a purple backdrop. Participation was “very good” for the first year of the event. Purple Thursday, as well as the entire Domestic Violence Awareness Month, is meant to raise awareness and education about Domestic Violence on a local and national scale. According to Dillenback, “The topic is meant to create a dialogue on a topic that must not remain taboo.” Training on this difficult but crucial topic is covered in classes year-round at Fleet and Family Services, but receives special attention in October.

The first Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed in 1987. It was created not only for education and prevention, but in an effort to create a coalition for those seeking to end violence against battered
Remember always support our troops
women and their children. Furthermore, the U.S Congress officially recognized this month in 1989, and continues to provide leadership and direction to the cause. President Barack Obama participated in this year’s
events, stating, “During National Domestic Awareness Month, we acknowledge the progress made in reducing these shameful crimes, embrace the basic human right to be free from violence and abuse, and recognize that more work remains until every individual is able to live free from fear.” Although this was the first year that Purple Thursday was observed, it will not be the last. Dillenback hopes to expand on the event next year, and perhaps hopes to involve a uniform change so personnel in uniform could actively participate. NASWF Fleet and Family Services is located at 7511 USS Enterprise St. Hours are 7:30 a.m.- 4 p.m., and a multitude of services including financial and social advising are offered.

Housing Allowance 2. Sea or Flight Pay 3. Retirement Pay 4. Social Security 5. V.A. Benefits (Yes, despite what others have told you, VA pay is included in child support calculations. Some of you will argue this point. Make an appointment and I will show you why it is included). You will still be governed by the child support requirements under the general Divorce/Child Support for the state of Florida. FYI: Based on the child support formula, it is almost always cheaper, if possible, to use day care.

A major problem which can affect both the payor and recipient of child support is when the support should begin. If you are involved in the initial Divorce proceeding the payor’s obligation begins, at the minimum, when the divorce is filed and/or you no longer live together with the child/children. The separation date may predate the filing of the divorce petition. You need an attorney’s advice to ascertain your obligation. If you wait until the final hearing, you may have to pay ongoing child support plus a court ordered amount each month to satisfy an arrearage plus interest. If you are active duty military, the JAG manual (navy page) will specify what you must pay to continue to support your family until further court order. A temporary hearing could reduce the amount of child support that you have been direct to may pay military orders or rules. If you are the spouse of an active duty military member, reservist or retiree, see Spouse/Military or
call for an appointment regarding the questions you may have. Retirement Alimony/Spousal Support In Florida, military retirement funds are an asset which is treated differently than other income related to Alimony/Spousal Support. The spouse of retired military personnel receives a pro rata share of the retirement funds. If the spouse remarries, the awarded share is still paid. If the military retiree dies, and an SBP is elected, it is still paid. You must make sure your lawyer uses the correct formula in order to establish the amount owed. DFAS has particular guidelines that must be met in order to accomplish the correct payment of spousal support.

Wounded Warriors show strength during November, Warrior Care Month By Ingrid Mueller and Steve Buckley Fleet and Family Readiness Marketing
ASHINGTON (NNS) – Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus named November 2014 Warrior Care Month in an allNavy message (AlNav) released recently to Navy and Marine Corps personnel.
“The Department of the Navy (DoN) has made an abiding commitment to seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Marines, as well as their families and caregivers,” said Mabus. “I encourage all DoN personnel to take an opportunity during Warrior Care Month to join me in expressing heartfelt gratitude and support.” Warrior Care Month is an annual effort to increase awareness of resources available to seriously wounded, ill and injured service members, their families, and those who care for them. This year’s theme, “A Show of Strength,” recognizes the fortitude and resiliency that seriously wounded, ill and injured service members exhibit during their journeys toward recovery. “This is an opportunity to join with the other military services in publicly recognizing our wounded warrior heroes,” said Navy Wounded Warrior (NWW) – Safe Harbor Director Capt. Brent Breining. This year, Warrior Care Month kicked off during the last week in October to accommodate the
Thanksgiving holiday during the final week in November. Since its inception, NWW has provided world-class assistance to more than 3,100 Sailors and Coast Guardsmen and their families throughout the country. It provides a lifetime of non-medical care to seriously wounded, ill and injured service members, guiding them through their recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration. “There are a lot of disabled veterans out there, and service members suffering with various issues, whether they realize it or not, and they may feel forgotten,” said retired Lt.j.g. Laura Root, who was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy in 2011. “We really need to raise awareness and bring them into our community and this movement.” Each day, wounded warriors demonstrate strength in ways large and small – from pushing themselves during a grueling physical therapy session, to attending a class to acquire new skills, to asking for help when they

need emotional support. Wounded warriors are not only service members wounded in combat; the term also applies to those with serious illnesses, as well as those injured in shipboard, training and liberty accidents. “Military treatment facilities are providing expert restorative and rehabilitative care for wounded warriors whether on the battlefield or the home front,” added Breining. “And, our non-medical care providers at NWW, as well as our other Fleet and Family Support programs, address the daily needs of wounded warriors so they can focus on healing without distraction.”
The families and caregivers of wounded warriors also exhibit strength by supporting their loved ones’ during their recovery – often at great personal expense. The Navy connects them with critical resources to make their jobs as caregivers more manageable, including the SCAADL (Special Compensation for Assistance with Activities of Daily Living) program, FOCUS (Families Overcoming Under Stress), and the Joining Forces Peer-toPeer initiative. “Everyone in the Navy family can make a difference in the lives of wounded warriors,” said Breining. “They can refer a
service member who has experienced serious illness or injury to NWW by calling 855-NAVY WWP (628-9997). They also can help spread the word about NWW and other resources online, in conversations with neighbors, at community meetings and around the dinner table.” Warrior Care Month was established in 2008, when former Secretary of Defense Robert F. Gates declared it would be a “Department of Defense effort aimed at increasing awareness of programs and resources available to wounded, ill and injured service members, their families, and those who care for them.”

Jokes & Groaners Rural recruit’s letter home from boot camp Dear Ma and Pa: I am well. Hope you are too. Tell brother Walt and brother Elmer that the military beats working by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled. I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 5 a.m., but I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay ... practically nothing. Men got to shave but it’s not so bad because there’s warm water. We go on “route marches,” which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. A route march is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks. This next part will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for shooting. I don’t know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk head and don’t move, and it ain’t shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy. Signed, your loving daughter, Alice

B3 GOSPORT Be prepared: Register in WAAN, NFAAS to stay informed PA G E
November 21, 2014
From Navy Installations Command Public Affairs
WA S H I N G T O N (NNS) – Sailors, both active and reserve, Navy civilian employees and contractors working aboard installations with Navy Marine Corps Intranet or One Net user accounts are required to register in the Wide Area Alert Network (WAAN) and the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS). “The number of Navy personnel who have completed their required WAAN registration is
shockingly low,” said Dan Haacke, Navy Installations Command’s emergency management systems operations specialist, noting roughly 44 percent compliancy rate across the enterprise. Updating WAAN and NFAAS is part of the Navy Ready program under Navy Installations Command. Navy Ready is vitally important in the event of a catastrophic situation. Part of an ongoing effort to emphasize the importance of preparedness, Navy Ready needs everyone’s participation in order for the ac-
Your City, Your Magazine
countability system to be effective. It only takes a few moments, and registering in the WANN or NFAAS is the key to success. Registration is not automatic, however. The two programs are independent and perform unique functions critical to force protection and personnel accountability and must be updated separately. “Whereas NFAAS is used for accountability and needs assessments after an emergency, updating your information in NFAAS does not up-
date your information in the WAAN,” said Haacke. WAAN is used by region commanders and installation commanding officers to provide realtime alerts before, during and after emergencies, force protection condition (FPCON) changes, severe weather hazards, major traffic changes and other situations that may affect personnel. Sailors and civilians should update their NFAAS information twice a year to avoid outdated information which can delay the Navy’s
ability to account for and provide assistance to affected personnel. “While work phone numbers and e-mails are required to be registered, personnel have the option of registering personal cell phones as well as alternate cell phones of family members so personnel may receive alerts at work, at home, or on the go,” Haacke said. “In doing so, personnel and their families have access to information on what to do and where to go in case of an emergency, base closure, or all-clear notice. Bot-
tom line, your command cannot inform you if they cannot reach you. Register today.” To register on the Wide Area Alert Network go to w w w. re a d y. n a v y. mil/stay_informed/waan. html and for NFAAS go to http://www.cnic.navy. mil/ffr/family_readiness/fleet_and_family_su pport_program/disaster_preparedness/navyfamily-accountability-an d-assessment-system-nfaas-.html.

Dancers form a circle during last year’s Thanksgiving pow wow at the Poarch Creek Indian Reservation in Atmore, Ala. Photo from Poarch Band of Creek Indians
Take your pick of pow wows Creek Indian heritage to be focus of celebrations in Pace and Atmore By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer
This is the time of year when members of local Indian tribes gather for special celebrations. The Santa Rosa County Creek Indian Tribe’s 24th annual pow wow celebration is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 22 and Nov. 23 at Floridatown Park in Pace. Entertainment will include the Red Horse Singers, Bobby and Sandy DuBose and The Muscogee Creek-Cherokee Dancers. The celebration also will feature Native American storytelling and heritage displays along with arts crafts and foods including Indian corn and fry bread. Admission is free. For more information, contact Chief Thomas Nichols at 994-4882 or Vice Chief Lloyd Hinote at 516-6960. Everyone is invited to celebrate Thanksgiving with the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. Tribal members plan to gather at the Poarch Creek Reservation in Atmore, Ala., for the 44th annual pow wow Nov. 27 and Nov. 28. During the two-day event you will have the chance to experience the Poarch Creek culture. The tribe hosts dancers and drum groups, and the event also includes a display of authentic dress
and exhibition dancing. You can shop at more than 100 hand-made Native American craft booths and find a selection of music, books and contemporary jewelry and artwork. Options for the Thanksgiving feast include barbecue and roasted corn. Community churches also join in the festivities by providing traditional turkey and dressing dinners, ham and fried chicken plates. The pow wow has grown from a family “homecoming” celebration into an event that attracts visitors from all over the country. The Poarch Creek Indians are descendents of a segment of the original Creek Nation. Unlike many eastern Indian tribes, the Poarch Creeks were not removed from tribal lands and members of the tribe have resided in and around the Atmore area for almost 200 years. Gates opens at 10 a.m. each day; dancing starts at 1 p.m. Nov. 27 and 11 a.m. Nov. 28. The reservation is eight miles northwest of Atmore. Admission is $5 for ages 11 and older; children 10 and younger get in free. For more information, go to www.poarch creekindians-nsn.gov.
