DoD/TSA partner to provide military TSA precheck at 100 airports From http://www. defense.gov/
As part of the ongoing effort to move away from a one-size-fits-all security approach and provide more of the traveling public the ability to participate in expedited screening, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) recently announced a partnership to expand TSA precheck expedited screening benefits to all U.S. armed forces service members, including those serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, reserves and National Guard. As a result of the agreement, these individuals will be able to enjoy the benefits of the program at the 100 participating airports across the country, beginning Dec. 20. Currently, members

Navy College Survey: Tell us what you need Story, photo by Ed Barker NETC PAO
In order to improve service and provide educational offerings that service members need, the Navy College Office (NCO) onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola is conducting its online Needs Assessment Survey through Nov. 27. The survey is one of the tools used by the Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) to ensure service members’ educational needs are satisfied throughout the Department of Defense (DoD) community. This survey gives students an opportunity to provide direct and accurate feedback to their NCO and facilitate program improvement and modifications. The survey takes 15 minutes or less to complete. To access the survey, go to:

Students assigned to Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) became United States citizens during a naturalization ceremony at Barrancas National Cemetery Nov. 14. During the ceremony 122 citizen candidates, including 12 Sailors, swore their allegiance to become citizens of the United States of America. The Honorable M. Casey Rodgers, Chief United States District Judge for the Northern District of Florida, presided over the special session of her court held outdoors at Barrancas National Cemetery. The cemetery was chosen as the venue for this particular citizenship ceremony out of respect for the many U.S. citizens of foreign birth who had served as veterans in previous conflict, as well as to honor the service of the Sailors who swore their oath and became citizens during that ceremony. A significant difference from many citizenship ceremonies that take place throughout the United States and this one was that 12 of the new American citizens had already sworn allegiance to the United States and to protect its freedom when they became United States Navy Sailors. Becoming an American citizen has been a long term goal for AN Michael Pineda, originally from the Philippines, a student in NATTC’s Aviation Professional Apprentice Career Track (APACT) Course. “I am happy that this is happening today and proud to be a part of something so much bigger than myself,” Pineda said. He spent his childhood divided between Manila and New Jersey, and after high school spent several years as a student at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in Kutztown, Penn., before he decided to join the Navy. “I wanted to serve as way of giving back to the country that has done so much to accept me.” Another NATTC APACT student who became as citizen was AN Francis Agbaglo, originally from Ghana. “I joined the U.S. Navy because I wanted to continue my education,” Agbaglo said. “The process to become a citizen has been a little stressful, but I think it has been worth it and I am very happy to be swearing my oath today.” During the moving ceremony, each citizen candidate briefly introduced themselves and their country of origin. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany Eggers then made the motion for admission to the court that the candidates be sworn in as American citizens.

Remembering President John F. Kennedy ... Today, Nov. 22, marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The Navy veteran is remembered for his patriotism, key insights on foreign relations, and strong global leadership, including a Cold War showdown with the Soviet Union over missiles in Cuba. Of his service, Kennedy once told a group at the U.S. Naval Academy, “I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: ‘I served in the United States Navy.’ ” (Left) Navy Lt.

of the U.S. Armed Forces can utilize TSA Precheck lanes at 10 domestic airports by presenting their Common Access Card (CAC). The partnership expands the program to the military at all 100 airports offering TSA precheck, allowing service members to keep their footwear on as well as light outerwear, belts, laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry on in select screening lanes. “TSA joins with the American people in showing its appreciation for the service and sacrifices of our men and women in the Armed Forces,” said TSA Deputy Administrator John W. Halinski, a 25-year Marine Corps veteran. “Providing expedited screening while on travel is the least we can do for these courageous men and women.” The new process being established under this agreement allows all active duty, U.S. Coast Guard, reserve and National Guard service members to use their DoD identification number when making reservations. That ID number will be used as their Known Traveler Number. When arriving at the airport, service members will then be permitted access to TSA precheck lanes for official or leisure travel on participating airlines. More than 18 million passengers have experienced TSA precheck since it launched in October 2011. TSA has recently expanded this expedited screening program to 60 new airports in addition to the existing 40, bringing the total number of airports with TSA precheck to 100. TSA has long recognized men and women in uniform as nearly a quarter of TSA’s workforce is a veteran or currently serves as an active duty service member in the U.S. armed forces. In addition to expanding TSA precheck to service members, TSA wants to remind the American public about the Wounded Warrior screening program. This program makes the overall experience for wounded service members as simple as possible. This includes personalized service and expedited screening to move through security checkpoints without having to remove footwear, light outerwear, jackets or head wear. Wounded warriors or their care coordinators can contact TSA Cares toll free at 1 (855) 787-2227 with details of the itinerary once flight arrangements are made with the airline. TSA will always incorporate random and unpredictable security measures throughout the airport. No individual will be guaranteed expedited screening. Travelers can check the TSA precheck participating airports page for information on locations and hours of active TSA precheck lanes. Further information on TSA Precheck for military members can be found at www.TSA.gov and www.defensetravel.dod.mil.
the survey. “We want service members to are currently taking classes to participate, but you do not have to be currently enrolled to take the survey,” said Spradlin. “In fact, anyone considering expanding or continuing their education is highly encouraged to give us input that could directly affect the educational programs offered to them in the future.” Navy Voluntary Education Director Ernest D’Antonio noted that the inputs from the Pensacola survey will be combined with those from NCOs around the world to improve overall voluntary education. “Needs assessment inputs from the bases allow us to support specific requirements from the local NCOs and balance them with the college education requirements and changes throughout the United States university system,” said D’Antonio. “Educational offerings and technology are changing at a breakneck pace. Needs assessments allow the NCOs the flexibility and insight to keep up with both.” A few of the topics covered in the survey include: educational funding, degrees offered, length of class terms, and learning delivery methods. According to Spradlin, there is no guarantee that specific funding and courses currently offered will always be available in the future because of the nature in which needs change; service members should be proactive by taking the needs assessment survey to better safeguard existing services and suggest new program ideas. “Tell us how well we’re doing and tell us what we can do better,” added Spradlin. “Whether it is adding a program, getting rid of a program, offering more online courses or increasing instructor-led classes.” According to Lt. Cmdr. Mack Wafford, officer in charge of the Naval Air Technical Training Air Operations Department and recent bachelor’s degree recipient, it is important to take advantage of educational opportunities as early as possible. Wafford recently completed the needs assessment survey. “It’s important to be as competitive as you can be,” said Wafford. “Promotion boards look at things like education, which can be a tie-breaker. Plus, education makes you more marketable once you leave the service.” The survey for the area served by the Pensacola NCO is available at https://www. research. net/s/NCO_PCOLA_TNA; for more information about the Navy College Program, visit the NCO website: https://www.navycollege.navy.mil/.

(Note: DoD’s TSA precheck news release announced the expansion of the program to include all uniformed military personnel, active and reserve. Originally, it only applied to active service members only. It does not yet apply to DoD civilians, and non-CAC card holders (retirees and dependents), though TSA is continuing to further expand its program. – Capt.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Keith Hoskins Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White 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,
Judge Rodgers then administered the naturalization oath of allegiance to the candidates. The candidates swore the citizenship oath, similar in some respects to the oath of enlistment, where they renounced allegiance and ties to previous states and powers, swore to support and defend the Constitution, to bear arms when required, and that they were doing this “freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion.” The new citizens were joined by the attending guests in the recitation of the “Pledge of Allegiance,” followed by an impressive rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” by Dr. Leo Day, dean of the school of music at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. Judge Rodgers called AN Ashanti Elrington, an APACT student, originally from Belize, forward to speak about her journey to service and citizenship. Elrington spoke of her childhood, which was split between Belize and the United States. She talked of her education to this point and her desire to practice law, but that she needed to find a way to pay for law school. Elrington was drawn to the Navy for the education benefits, the opportunity to travel, and most importantly, the opportunity through service to be a part of something greater than herself. She closed her comments by speaking about the “Sailor’s Creed,” saying “a citizen from here on out when I recite ‘I proudly serve my country’s Navy combat team with Honor, Courage and Commitment,’ it is now my country too.” Capt. Keith Hoskins, the commanding officer of Naval Air Station Pensacola, then made his remarks as the ceremony’s guest speaker. Hoskins reminded each of the new citizens of the importance of their new citizenship, as well as what the “Pledge of Allegiance” now means to each of them. Hoskins then charged the new citizens to make four choices: “As new citizens choose not be sidelined, but be involved and vote; to be informed of the issues that affect us; to seek out opportunities to get involved; and to choose to tell your stories.” The ceremony closed with a stirring rendition of “America the Beautiful” and “God Bless America” sung not only in English, but in several of the native tongues of the new citizens by Day. For more than 70 years, NATTC has been delivering training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy and Marine students annually. The majority of the student body is comprised of enlisted personnel attending “A” schools, where they are gaining the knowledge and skills required to perform in fleet as technicians at the apprentice level.

“We have had a long partnership with Siemens (the city’s subcontractor on this project) and we are very proud of the work they perform for the Navy,” said Dena Faessel, administrator of operations for the city of Pensacola. “We are extremely honored to be recognized by NavFac for our safety performance on this project,” said Bobby Marcus, general manager, Siemens Industry Inc. during the presentation. “Jason Adcock, automation project manager and Rich Graff, energy project manager, quality control/site safety and health officer, and our subcontractors were instrumental in executing an outstanding safety program with zero mishaps during this project.” Safety achievements from Siemens Industry, Inc. included energy efficiency improvements to the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NAS Pensacola. The project was a utility energy service contract or UESC (energy modernization) project where the contractor replaced three chillers, one cooling tower, 19 roof top units (RTUs) and three RTU frames for the museum. In this case, the prime contractor was the City of Pensacola. The National Naval Aviation Museum is the world’s largest naval aviation museum, encompassing nearly 300,000 square feet of space. Siemens Industry Inc. worked more than 380 consecutive days and completed a total of 54 intricate crane lifts utilizing a 400-ton crane. All work was accomplished while keeping the museum fully operational serving more than 2,200 visitors daily.

I admit, I’m a fan of Thankgiving’s forbidden fruit By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
As a child, my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal was not the turkey. I didn’t drool over the mashed potatoes or my father’s giblet gravy. I didn’t love, or even like for that matter, those miniature pickles and what-nots on my mother’s sectioned relish tray. I thought the stuffing had too many unidentifiable objects in it to be palatable and I wouldn’t even touch a yam, candied or otherwise. Believe it or not, I never got jazzed up about the pumpkin pie, even with a humongous dollop of Cool Whip. Nope. My favorite part of my family’s Thanksgiving meal was the one that sat inconspicuously in a little pressed glass dish at the corner of the dining table. It didn’t require much preparation, but it was an essential part of our feast that I looked forward to every year. It was the canned cranberry sauce. Now, don’t judge. After all, it was the 1970s, when we ate everything out of cans. Peas, corn, fruit juice, grapefruit sections, ham, chow mien, beef stew, liverwurst and even chocolate syrup. It was a decade that celebrated ingenious cooking short

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. cuts such as canned foods, processed meats, flavored gelatin and mini marshmallows. Back then, canned cranberry sauce was downright trendy. Besides, that stuff is delicious. Admit it.
When I was old enough to use the can opener, my mother would let me prepare the canned cranberries for our Thanksgiving meal. After releasing the suction, and prying off the lid, the jellied cylinder would slide right out onto the pressed glass dish, perfectly intact and still showing the ridges of the can, with a pleasing little “PLOP.” Using a table knife, I would slowly carve the rounded mold into uniform disks that wiggled as I carried them to the table. To me, the sweet, tangy, chilled, translucent, smooth, slices glowed like rubies in the candlelight refracting through the glass dish, and they tasted simply divine. Back then, I thought that canned cranberry sauce gave our Thanksgiving meal ele-
vated status – it was gourmet, fancy, high class. So why then, 40 years later, has canned cranberry sauce been relegated to the ranks of the boxed stuffing, jarred gravies, and other homely short cuts of the culinary world? Twenty years ago, I married a Navy man, and we have moved around the world. Most holidays, we were unable to travel the distance to be with extended family, so we shared meals with other Navy friends who were in the same boat (pun intended.) During the inevitable Thanksgiving meal planning conversations between the wives, it soon became clear that it was not cool to serve canned cranberry sauce. “You don’t serve canned cranberries, do you?” they would ask, incredulously. And
of course, to save face, I would lie. “Oh gosh no! I always make it from scratch, you know, with the real cranberries and the sugar and, uh ... ” I would fib, praying that the other wife would volunteer to make it so I wouldn’t have to search for a recipe. And at every Thanksgiving meal we shared with other military families over the years, I fawned over the homemade cranberry relishes they had been stewing all day with fresh ginger, orange zest or cloves. However, a year has not gone by, that I did not get a secret smack of my beloved canned cranberry sauce around Thanksgiving time. It’s easy to saunter by the seasonal commissary display with it’s fried onions, condensed milk and chicken broth, and inconspicuously slip a can of cranberries into my grocery cart without any of the other wives noticing. But all these years of shame and secrecy are wearing on me. Now in my 40s, I’m ready to come out of the closet. Yes, I wear comfortable cotton underwear. Yes, I color my grays. Yes, I’m saving my puka shell anklet from 1981 just in case it comes back into style. And yes, I will always love canned cranberry sauce.

USS Iwo Jima crash and salvage team trains at NATTC in revised course Story, photos by Lt. Jonathan Bacon NATTC PAO
flight deck crash and salvage team from the amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7) completed refresher training at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Nov. 9. During their week at the training center, team members received hands-on training in fighting flight deck fires, proper crash and salvage procedures, and safely lifting and moving damaged aircraft using a crane. The Iwo Jima’s crash and salvage team came to NATTC, onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, for the specialized training to bring new members up to speed and to refresh veteran members’ skills. This was the Iwo Jima team’s first opportunity to go through the crash and salvage team training course following recent revisions. Post course critiques, conducted by Iwo Jima team members in the past were part of the impetus to update the course, and this was an opportunity for those team members to see first-hand how their suggestions had changed the course. One of the first changes which impressed Iwo Jima air boatswain CWO Frank Jusino was how much of the training was shifted from the class room, to the lab. “I like how these changes have cut out some of the classroom time and get our team right into the hands-on portion,” he said. Jusino was also looking forward
to the opportunity for his team to practice lifting and moving NATTC’s inventory of ‘duds’ or stricken aircraft. “The opportunity to move around the duds during the salvage training, and do it safely ‘by the book’ is part of what makes this training so valuable to my team,” Jusino said. “There just aren’t enough duds up in Norfolk for us to regularly practice aircraft salvage lifts, so this training is a very important part of getting my team ready for flight deck emergencies.” Jusino explained that
Members of the USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7) flight deck crash and salvage team fight an external aircraft fire, while the overhaul team backs away during the reflash scenario portion of Flight Deck Crash and Salvage Team Training at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC). The overhaul and reflash scenarios were one of the recent changes made to the NATTC’s Crash and Salvage Team Training to make it more realistic based upon comments from fleet crash and salvage teams.
the Iwo Jima team was conducting this training because they had turned over approximately 80 percent of their personnel. “This team is extremely green, and this training will set them all up on a straight path in regards to their procedures and techniques,” he explained. “We also brought this team down here because we will get the best investment out of this. Most of these new Sailors will be on our team for up to five years, and bringing them here to train at this point means we can use this

training experience as long as possible.” ABH3 Logan Wyatt, was one of the few members of the team who had been through the course before the revisions, and appreciated the changes made to the course. Wyatt also liked the decreased classroom instruction, and the increase in hands-on instruction. “I think the firefighting training is very important for our team,” Wyatt said. “We can’t practice fighting real fires like this on the ship, and being able to do this brings us closer together as a team, makes us more knowledgeable, and helps us depend more on our team mates.” The Crash and Salvage Team Training Course was revised to increase the level of realism at the request of the fleet. NATTC’s Shipboard Crash and Salvage Course leading chief petty officer ABHC Geoffrey Wyatt explained that the critiques provided by the Iwo Jima team after a previous visit provided some of the feedback which was used to improve the realism of the training. “This is their first time through the revised course,” Wyatt said. “They can now see their suggestions in action as
they train with the Mobile Aircraft Firefighting Training Device (MAFTD). They use the A/S 32 P-25 firefighting vehicle to clear a path through the fire to the aircraft door. The team proceeds inside of the smoke-filled MAFTD, retrieves ‘Rescue Randy,’ the simulated crewman and egress the aircraft.” Another element added to the training allows the team to practice overhauling the fire using a thermal imaging camera (TIC) to locate any remaining hot spots that need to be extinguished and cooled. In addition, reflash scenarios have been incorporated, where the fire starts back up after being extinguished. “These changes, based off fleet recommendations, make the training more realistic. We conduct this realistic, highrisk training in a safe and controlled environment under the supervision of our crash and salvage subject matter experts, who have returned from the fleet to instruct at NATTC,” Wyatt said. Since its commissioning in 1942, NATTC has been committed to delivering training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy and Marine
students annually. The majority of the student population is made up of enlisted personnel attending “A” schools, where they are learning the skills and knowledge required to perform as apprentice level technicians in the fleet. The center also provides airman apprenticeship training, personal financial management, and shipboard aircraft firefighting training. Advanced schools provide higher level technical knowledge for senior petty officers, and technical training for officers in aviation fuels, carrier air traffic control center operations, amphibious air traffic control center operations, aircraft launch and recovery equipment, and shipboard aircraft fire fighting. Additionally, NATTC supports the fleet by providing team training to ships personnel during their pre-deployment work-ups, to ensure that shipboard personnel have the proficiency required to take their ship on deployment, after a prolonged period in port.

Military apprenticeship program updates, simplifies website By Ens. Riley Cornett NETC PAO
The United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP) announced website updates Nov. 14, simplifying the process for Sailors working toward civilian credentials by documenting their daily work. The USMAP team works closely with the Department of Labor (DoL) to provide nationally recognized apprenticeship programs that result in journeyman-level certificates of completion for members of the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. Service members receive credit for the hours they are working in their rating or military occupational specialties (MOS), similar to their civilian counterparts working in an apprenticeship. The program is free to service members and requires minimal time outside of the normal work day. “To improve our service and meet the growing demand we are constantly tweaking our website,” said Tom Phillips, USMAP Certification and Credentialing Program lead. “The site is now more concise and easier-to-use since we’ve rearranged information, enabled user login without a CAC card, removed trades already completed by the user and improved local command resources,” he said.
Phillips noted that the program has experienced significant and constant growth during the past several years. “More than 8,100 service members earned journeyman-level certificates through USMAP in the fiscal year 2013 and there are nearly 74,000 active participants in the program, which is the highest level of involvement we have ever seen,” added Phillips. “With the economy in flux and the military looking at future downsizing, many service members are looking for a leg-up to differentiate themselves for current and future employment and this program certainly helps them accomplish that.” One website addition that has added to the popularity of the program is the inclusion of coordinator information and promotional materials. “USMAP recently began providing the contact information of the command coordinator to new users,” Phillips continued. “Command coordinators work like a conduit to our program. In order to assist the coordinators we added an informative coordinator guide and program briefing, along with items intended to be printed and distributed (pamphlets) or displayed (promotional posters).” Naval Air Technical Training Center’s command coordinator for

USMAP, NCC Eric Babin, has taken advantage of the program by earning three certificates since he first learned about the program 10 years ago in Career Counselor School. Babin noted that getting an early start in USMAP can pay big dividends. “Sailors should be informed of the program upon arrival at their new command so they can start
documenting their hours immediately,” added Babin. “We push USMAP at command indoctrination and also at the Sailors’ career development boards.” Blue Angels maintenance crewmember AZ1 Yvonne Dumas was encouraged early in her career to work toward an apprenticeship. “During my time onboard the USS Eisenhower
(CVN 69) I was ‘voluntold’ by my leading petty officer to begin a USMAP program,” said Dumas. “I earned a certificate of completion of apprenticeship for computer operator while my squadron was deployed onboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. I got a tremendous feeling of accomplishment knowing that this would help me for evaluation purposes and in the civilian world, as I am not going to be in the Navy forever.” Dumas’ success with USMAP inspired her to improve herself in other areas as well. “In the military it can be hard to do things outside of your job as you are working at a high tempo and may feel you don’t have time,” added Dumas. “But after initially being pushed into continuing my education while in the Navy by documenting my hours through USMAP, I have been inspired and am now close to earning a bachelor’s degree in database administration from American Military University through online courses. It is motivating being around others that are gaining education and credentials and that is the command culture here with the Blue Angels. I am also looking toward earning another apprenticeship certificate through USMAP – as a data analyst.”
For certification through DoL, trades require a mix of instruction in addition to hours worked in the field. The instruction portion can be acquired through technical schools; “A” schools count regardless of the length of school.

Flight instructor a finalist in Beneful Dream Dog Park contest By Jay Cope NASWF PAO
apt. Gail Leibovich, USAF, and her dog Indiana Jones TyrannosaurusRex (Indy for short) are looking for a little help to make their dream a reality. This is the second year in a row Leibovich has entered and become a finalist in the Beneful Dream Dog Park competition. The annual contest awards the winner a $10,000 grand prize and a $500,000 dog park makeover to a dog park in the area in which they live. Leibovich and Indy hope to bring the grand prize back to the Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) area. Leibovich, and her husband, Joshua, are flight instructors from Training Squadron Three and Helicopter Training Squadron 18 respectively. The couple met at Whiting Field, married, and have now returned to the Milton area after separate tours in the west. Their flight training background inspired Leibovich to pursue the concept of a pilot training-themed dog park called “Howl to the Chief.” The finalist portion of
the contest requires the participants to describe the type of park they envision and submit a video as to how it would make the submitter’s life and “best friend’s” life better. Leibovich envisions a painted and lit trail called the runway; an area with ramps, tunnels, platforms, and hurdles for aerobatics training; a swimming pool and splash pad for Air Force Capt.

SecNav Mabus names November Warrior Care Month By Patty Babb Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor
ASHINGTON (NNS) – In AlNav 077/13, released Nov. 8 to all Navy and Marine Corps personnel, the Secretary of the Navy (SecNav) designated November 2013 as Warrior Care Month. “Providing assistance to seriously wounded, ill and injured service members and their families is a top priority for the Navy,” said SecNav Ray Mabus. “We take care of our own – including active-duty, reserve and veteran Sailors and Command – has assisted nearly 2,500 service members and their families since its inception. “NWW (is) part of an extensive catalog of Navy programs that enhance the mental, physical and emotional health of service members,” said Mabus. “(It) provide(s) the gold standard of non-medical care to wounded warriors and their families, offering resources that promote healing and opportunities for success, both within and beyond military service.” The theme of Warrior Care Month 2013 is “Warrior Care – Building a Ready and Resilient Force.” Promoting readi-
Warrior Care Month is a joint-service event that recognizes wounded warriors – as well as those who care for them – for their service, sacrifices and achievements. It also is an opportunity to raise awareness of the resources available to service members should illness or injury strike unexpectedly. One especially critical resource is Navy Wounded Warrior (NWW) – Safe Harbor, the Navy’s support program for seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailor and Coast Guardsmen. The program – a department within Fleet and Family Readiness at Commander, Navy Installations
Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus shakes hands with Lt. Brad Snyder, winner of two gold medals and one silver medal in the 400-, 100- and 50-meter freestyle competitions at the 2012 Paralympic games. Snyder, an explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) officer and 2006 U.S. Naval Academy graduate, was recognized by the Naval Academy Athletic Association for his achievements at a NCAA football matchup between the midshipmen and the San Jose State Spartans at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. On Sept. 7, 2011 Snyder lost his sight while when an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated in his face while he was coming to the aid of Afghan soldiers who were victims of another IED. One year later, on Sept. 7, 2012, Snyder proved his resilience by competing and winning the 400-meter freestyle gold medal in the Paralympics. Photo by MC1 Peter D. Lawlor
ness and resiliency ensures that wounded warriors can cope with adversity – on the front lines or at home. To that end, NWW offers many essential services, including connecting families to respite care resources; addressing pay and personnel issues; assisting with housing and transportation adaptation; providing transition assistance; offering adaptive athletics opportunities; and more. “Oftentimes, NWW
serves as a key link between the Navy and a Sailor who is recovering away from his command,” said NWW Deputy Director Merissa Larson. “Our program addresses whatever non-medical needs surface, which allows seriously wounded, ill and injured service members and their families to focus on healing without distractions.” NWW non-medical care providers are located at major military treatment

Additionally, BuMed’s FOCUS (Families OverComing Under Stress) Project and the Naval Center for Combat and Operational Stress Control help service members and their families grapple with operational stress before, during and after deployment. During Warrior Care Month, SecNav Mabus urges the Navy family to become more familiar with the many programs available to seriously wounded, ill and injured service members, and to join him in saluting wounded warriors and those who care for them.
“Our commitment to seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Marines, as well as their families and caregivers, is unwavering,” he said. “I encourage all Navy personnel to take an opportunity during Warrior Care Month to join me in expressing our heartfelt gratitude and support.” For more information about Warrior Care Month activities, visit http://safeharbor. navylive. dodlive. mil or www.facebook. com/navysafeharbor.

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 6 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

Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron announces Blue Angels of the Quarter From Blue Angels PAO
The Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, announced its top Sailors for the fourth quarter of calendar year 2013 at an awards ceremony in the squadron’s hangar Nov. 6 at Naval Air Station Pensacola. YN1 Raffeal “Raff” Woods was selected as the 2013 Blue Angel of the Quarter (BAoQ). Woods is the squadron’s administration department supervisor and performs clerical duties including writing awards, fitness reports, evaluations, maintaining instructions and notices, processing message traffic, mail, leave requests, rating exams, service records, legal action, security and other official matters. The Atlanta native attributes his selection for this honor to following the examples of his peers and superiors on the Blue Angel team.

fourth quarter,” said Woods. “So, I say thank you to the men and women that wear the Blue Angel uniform, whom I constantly look to as examples of pride and professionalism.” Woods’ nomination and selection as BAoQ was the result of being a model Sailor and Blue Angel, according to his supervisor. “Raff is an outstanding Sailor, leader and a team player,” said YNC Angela Gingerich. “Raff being selected Sailor of the Quarter for the fourth quarter is very well deserved.” AO2 Breanna Gorski was selected the 2013 Junior Blue Angel of the Quarter (JBAoQ). Gorski is the paint shop/corrosion control supervisor and is responsible for painting operations and corrosion removal for the F/A-18 Hornets and Fat Albert, the C-130 transport aircraft. The Katy, Texas, native also attributes her selection as JBAoQ to her team-

mates, stating that she believes that every member of the team is a Sailor deserving of such recognition. “There isn’t one individual that stands out more than the others on this team because teamwork is so vital to ensure every detail is safely complete,” said Gorski. “It’s an amazing feeling to be acknowledged as the Junior Blue Angel of the Quarter and I sincerely feel that everyone on this team is deserving of the award.” According to her supervisor, recognizing Gorski as the JBAoQ was based on her commitment to the Navy and the Blue Angels’ mission, her winning attitude and her willingness to take on additional responsibilities. “Breanna excels in her management of programs important to both the Navy and the squadron and for many of our Blue Angels leaders is the go-to Sailor for solutions,” said AMC Leonard Timms. “We are proud to have her represent us as Junior Blue Angel of the Quarter.”

Fleet and Family Support Center
Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away. The SafeHelpline provides live crisis support and information by trained staff. Call (877) 995-5247; go to www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247 CONUS; (202) 470-5546 OCONUS (may be additional charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows a victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services and safety interventions. To access an unrestricted report, the victim can report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), SARC, and his/her CO shall commence an investigation. Restricted reporting allows a confidential report, which does not trigger command nor law enforcement notification and the victim can have a SAPR VA, and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim can disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care provider and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 VA, call 449-9231/2. To contact the SARC during working hours, call 452-5990, ext. 0; during and after working hours, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
