Friends and family members gathered to witness the swearing in of 72 new Americans, including two U.S. Navy Sailors, during a Nov. 18 naturalization ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum. The Honorable M. Casey Rodgers, chief judge for the Northern District of Florida, presided over the special court session. Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Officer Commanding Capt. Christopher Martin was the guest speaker. Rodgers said that while every naturalization ceremony is special, the November ceremony recognizes Veterans Day. “We can think of no more fitting way to welcome our newest citizens than by commemorating the selfless service of our veterans, who by their bravery and their sacrifices have secured the very

Fifty-eight students from New Warrington Elementary School graduated from the Saturday Scholars Program in a ceremony held at the Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola chapel Nov. 19. Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station continued a 33-year-old tradition of partnering with the Escambia County school district to have volunteers spend Saturday mornings mentoring students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) concepts. A command from NAS Pensacola Corry Station has supported a session at a different school each spring and fall, with this fall marking the 63rd session. “This is a great program that does a good job of bringing the military and community together,” said Chief Petty Officer Dwayne Self, an instructor at IWTC Corry Station and a coordinator for the Saturday Scholars Program. “It is one of our longest running programs, and I think it will con-

They played math-based games in small groups, and a computer lab offered academic skills and basic computing games. An outside station allowed the students and mentors to play a sport such as basketball and kickball. The experience offered the mentors a chance to reconnect with a younger generation and make a difference in a child’s life. “Throughout the program, we got to interact with the kids as they completed educational assignments in different subjects,” said SN Mosher Williams. “I joined the Navy to fight for this country, but to be able to actually give back and be able to see the smiling faces is one of the best feelings in the world.” Following the graduation, the students and their mentors spent time exploring the National

Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students.

Resistance is futile: Just put on your fat jeans By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

H

uman willpower built the pyramids, traveled to the moon and split the atom.

It compelled Vincent Van Gough to cut off his own left ear, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa to climb Mount Everest, and Joshua Slocum to sail alone around the world. But human willpower is no match against gingerbread lattes, holiday cheese balls, and Aunt Betty’s peanut butter fudge. Every year, I tell myself, “Lisa, you will NOT gain weight this holiday season.” But like a twig on the shoulders of a mighty stream, I am useless to fight it. My organs grow fatty between Halloween and New Year’s Eve, like some kind of forced-fed fois gras duck, as I careen helplessly through the annual gauntlet of gobble. As sure as the change in seasons, the shifting tides, and dryer lint, I drift mindlessly into these cyclical food-related events of life, and before I know it, there’s no escape.

How to submit a commentary

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 this-that-and-the-other. We feel compelled to indulge ourselves; after all, the season wouldn’t seem right without these traditional delicacies. But then, Halloween kicks it up a notch. Bam! 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 attempt to cleanse myself of excess calories, believing naively that, this will be the year that I make it through the season without gaining 10 pounds. Yeah, right. Before I know it, it’s Thanksgiving, and my pantry is stuffed to the gills with brown sugar, chocolate chips, pecans, corn syrup, canned

Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. pumpkin, cranberry sauce, chicken broth, cornbread mix, and those French-fried 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, onions, a 20-something pound turkey and a jar of those miniature sweet pickles for the relish tray. Resistance is, most definitely, futile. On Thanksgiving Day, I cook for more than 20, and serve less than 10. After toiling over the meal for so many thankless hours, I insist on mercilessly cramming my innards with my own work product. Uncomfortably full, I reach for seconds, then thirds, as my expanding gut compresses my lung capacity. Taking shallow breaths, I sample the desserts – “just a sliver of each” – as I ignore the nausea signals my stomach sends to my brain. I know the next bite might send me hurling to the nearest toilet, but I take it anyway. This self-destructive binge continues until I flop, engorged and panting, onto the couch. Despite vowing the next day to “never eat again,” I channel my mother’s depression-era ethic against wasting food, and spend the next two weeks consuming the Thanksgiving leftovers as turkey noodle soup, turkey divan, hot turkey sandwiches, cold turkey sandwiches,

turkey tetrazzini, turkey enchiladas and turkey potpie. When the turkey is finally 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 Christmastime, when, in my weakened state, I succumb to the cheese dip, spiral ham, eggnog, candy canes, prime rib, hot cocoa, mixed nuts, red and green M&Ms, and, of course, the cookies. Oh … the cookies. As my chins double, my inner dialogue attempts to justify the gluttony. “My belly button disappeared.” That's what holiday sweaters are for. “There’s a roll on my back.” Now it matches your front. And inevitably, when I emerge from the gauntlet, bloated and dizzy, I admit to myself, “I’ve gained 10 pounds.” Consider yourself lucky. Now you have a New Year’s resolution.

ourtesy of the University of West Florida, patrons of the T.T. Wentworth Jr. Florida State Museum are able to visit a unique piece of local history. A replica of Pensacola’s iconic bar, Trader Jon’s, is now on display, featuring more than 10,000 items amassed by its founder, Martin “Trader Jon” Weissman. For some, the exhibit offers a chance to relive fond memories of a popular Pensacola landmark once frequented by celebrities, aviators and tourists alike. The visit is made more authentic as the entryway and bar replication is accompanied by the voice of “Trader Jon” himself, via a short video in which he discusses how he acquired some of his many items. For others, however, the exhibit offers an altogether different experience. It offers a chance to enjoy a piece of naval aviation history. Valued at more than $2 million, Trader Jon’s collection at the Wentworth features an eclectic blend of celebrity and military aviation

Computer science legend, Rear Adm. Grace Hopper posthumously receives Presidential Medal of Freedom By April Grant Navy Office of Information

W

ASHINGTON (NNS) – Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper, best known for her advancements in computer programming and data processing, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously by President Barack Obama during a White House ceremony Nov. 22. “If Wright is flight, and Edison is light, then Hopper is code,” Obama said of the innovator who he noted was a gutsy and colorful woman who, when she joined the Navy was 15-pounds below military guidelines, yet attained a long and prosperous career. “While the women who pioneered software were often overlooked the most prestigious award for young computer scientists now bears her name,” he said, referring to the annual Grace Murray Hopper Award for Outstanding Young Computer Professionals, established in 1971 by the Association for Computing Machinery. “From cell phones to (U.S.) Cyber Command, we can thank Grace Hopper for opening programming to millions more people, help-

ing to usher in the information age and profoundly shaping our digital world,” Obama said. To accept the award on Hopper’s behalf was her grand-niece Deborah Murray, who stood alongside the president as the citation was read, “As a child who loved disassembling alarm clocks Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper found her calling early. Known today as the ‘queen of code’ Grace Hopper’s work helped make the coding language more practical and accessible ... Amazing Grace was committed to making the language of computer programming more universal. Today we honor her contributions to computer science and the sense of possibility she inspired for the generations of young people.”

University as a lieutenant junior grade. There, she completed groundbreaking work in computer technology, including producing a model of the electronic computer, the Mark I, and introducing the word “bug” to describe a computer malfunction. Often referred to as the “mother of computing,” Hopper was instrumental in the creation of (Universal Automatic Computer) UNIVAC, the first all-electronic digital computer. She also invented the first computer compiler and founded a new program language that became a widely used framework for Capt.

accomplished and how much the Navy valued her was an inspiration to me,” she said. Tighe, who has described Hopper as a role model, added, “Quite simply, and on many levels, Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper is an inspiration for us all. As a pioneer in computing, as a woman leading the way in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) field at a time when that was almost completely unheard of, and as a dedicated naval officer, she paved the way so that all of us who followed could succeed. All of us in the Information Warfare Community owe her our gratitude. The award of the Presidential Medal of Freedom is both well-earned and well deserved.” In 1996, the destroyer USS Hopper (DDG 70) was named in honor of the legend and in October the Naval Academy broke ground on Hopper Hall, which will house the academy’s Center for Cyber Studies. Her other awards and decorations include the Distinguished Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, American Campaign Medal, World War II Victory Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Armed Forces Reserve Medal and Naval Reserve Medal.

NASWF service members participate in memorial unveil By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Officer

A

gainst the backdrop of sparkling Gulf waves, majestic oak trees and white-sand beaches, a bronze eagle now takes flight from an American flag in Navarre Park to memorialize the lives of 11 service members who lost their lives March 10, 2015.

The new monument was unveiled to the public Nov. 18 to nearly 200 guests and dignitaries. The 35 members of Santa Rosa Leadership Class 29 took up the challenge more than one year ago to raise the funds, coordinate the creation, and plan the dedications to the four Soldiers and seven Marines who lost their lives in the tragic helicopter accident. The memorial pays tribute to their service to the nation and their sacrifice. Four members of Class 29 serve as part of the Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Training Air Wing Five team – Chief Warrant Officer Frank Cherry, Ground Electronics Officer NAS Whiting Field; Cmdr. J.D. McBryde, commanding officer Helicopter Training Squadron Eight; Capt. Mark Murray, Commodore Training Air Wing Five; and NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Todd Bahlau. Each member supported

the efforts to create the monument and plan the unveiling event. Bahlau served as the master of ceremonies for the unveiling occasion. In addition to introducing the guest speakers and VIPs during the observance, Bahlau reminded the audience of a prior ceremony to present each of the families one of the gold stars that originally decorated the monument’s pedestal. The event honored the sacrifices of the family members of the service members and the sense of community the local residents have with their military. “After the tragic event on March 10, 2015, our class immediately knew what we needed to do for our class project,” he stated. “It has been a long and challenging process, but for the 35 members of my leadership class, it was our mission to see it through ... Today is a special day, and I know that this community will continue to honor these brave

men long after this ceremony.” The bronze eagle and flag sit atop a pedestal with 11 stars cut into it. Each star represents one of the service members on the UH-60M Blackhawk helicopter, called MOJO 69, that was carrying the team on a routine training mission when it crashed while flying through dense fog over the Santa Rosa Sound. The cement base of the monument is shaped like the Pentagon with the top point facing the direction of where MOJO 69 went down. The memorial also pays tribute to all the service members who wear the nation’s uniform – a point brought home by Santa Rosa County Commissioner Rob Williamson. When he was offered a turn to speak, he reminisced about the one year anniversary of the accident. Williamson had been asked to speak at the commemoration of the anniversary and remembered that after offering condo-

lences to the family he was told that he had represented the county well and that he did them “proud.” “I felt like I was part of something bigger than me that day and I thought, ‘this must be what it is like to wear the uniform of our military – to be part of something bigger and more important that yourself,” he said. “They did us proud. They represented us well, and on behalf of us

all, we thank you.” Florida senator-elect Doug Broxson and conMatt gressman-elect Gaetz also praised the military and the sacrifice of the Mojo 69 team before turning the microphone over to Class 29 alumni Murray. Murray reminded the audience that what was “most meaningful” for him was that the idea for building the monument

originated from the civilians in the class, not the military members. That it was the civilians who developed the idea, devised the plan, ran the fundraising, and coordinated the events surrounding the memorial. The class was told that it was too big of a project, but they believed and persevered. Now, more than a year and onehalf later, the class stood together in solemn support of the men of Mojo 69. “To the family and friends of the men of MOJO 69, our prayer is that this memorial gives you some measure of comfort as you move forward,” he said. “Comfort that the love and support of people whom you have never met, are standing strong for you and your 11 ... our 11. The 11 who moved 35 men and women from Leadership Santa Rosa Class 29 to action.” Bahlau then called forward Randy New, the artist who designed the memorial; Corey Swindle, who cast the bronze work; and Brian Pettigrew of GCF Incorporated, who helped bring the memorial to completion. The three men, along with members of Class 29, removed the parachute covering the memorial to reveal it to the public for the first time.

Comedians bring stories, laughs to NAS Whiting Field By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs Officer

Navy Community Recreation brought the Laughcatchers Comedy tour to Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) for the third year in a row Nov. 17, and brought more than a few laughs with them for the installation team. Making a run through the military installations in the Southeast, the tour brought nationally known comics to entertain shore-bound service members. Lace Larrabee, Dan Gabriel, Mark Evans

and Brad Upton brought their A-list talent to Sikes Hall for a nearly two-hour show. Larrabee warmed up the crowd for the rest of the crew with her own brand of Southern charm. A veteran of comedy clubs across the county, Larrabee appeared on FOX’s “Laughs” in 2015. A former beauty pageant contestant, she spoke about her days as a beauty queen, love, being poor, and the troubles she has with her family. Larrabee especially complained about the pain of baby showers. Between the silly games, ridiculously expensive gifts on the registry, and

the lame “thanks for coming” gifts, it was easy to see she wasn’t a fan. She then passed the baton to Dan Gabriel. Billed as a man who performs “smart, stupid comedy” he has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”, and “Star Search” among others. Gabriel’s brand of PG-13 humor focused on every-day life like going through airport security and wanting a doctor to check out your X-rays after, being in first class and never wanting to go back to coach. But he stressed how bad of an idea

it is to play attitude poker with your wife in the morning. “My wife woke up mad at me, and I hadn’t even done anything ... yet,” Gabriel stated. Evans, an Atlanta native, took the microphone next to remind everyone that having a Southern accent does not mean someone is dumber than someone else. He contends that stupid is universal. Fresh off his “Southern, Not Stupid” tour, he pinpointed the silly things that happen every day and all around everyone. About 135 people attended the show hosted by MWR at Sikes Hall.

DAY OF ‘Infamy’ at

Pearl Harbor

Dec. 7, 1941, raid on Navy anchorage, air bases drew U.S. into war Story, photo from Naval History and Heritage Command

T

he Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, was one of the defining moments in history. A single carefully planned and well-executed stroke removed the United States Navy’s battleship force as a possible threat to the Japanese Empire’s southward expansion. America, unprepared and now considerably weakened, was abruptly brought into World War II as a full combatant.

Eighteen months earlier, President Franklin D. Roosevelt had transferred the United States fleet to Pearl Harbor as a presumed deterrent to Japanese agression. The Japanese military, deeply engaged in the seemingly endless war it had started against China in mid-1937, badly needed oil and other raw materials. Commercial access to these was gradually curtailed as the conquests continued. In July 1941, the Western powers effectively halted trade with Japan. From then on, as the desperate Japanese schemed to seize the oil and mineral-rich East Indies and Southeast Asia, a Pacific war was virtually inevitable. By late November 1941, with peace negotiations clearly ap-

proaching an end, informed U.S. officials (and they were well-informed, they believed, through an ability to read Japan’s diplomatic codes) fully expected a Japanese attack into the Indies, Malaya and probably the Philippines. Completely unanticipated was the prospect that Japan would attack east, as well. The U.S. fleet’s Pearl Harbor base was reachable by an aircraft carrier force, and the Japanese navy secretly sent one across the Pacific with greater aerial striking power that had ever been seen on the world’s oceans. Its planes hit just before 8 a.m. Dec. 7. Within a short time five of eight battleships at Pearl Harbor were sunk or sinking, with the rest damaged. Several other ships and most

Sailors in a motor launch rescue a survivor from the water alongside the sunken USS West Virginia (BB 48) during or shortly after the Japanese air attack on Pearl Harbor. Note the extensive distortion of West Virginia’s lower amidships structure, caused by torpedoes that exploded below that location.

Hawaii-based combat planes were also knocked out and more than 2,400 Americans were dead. Soon after, Japanese planes eliminated much of the American air force in the Philippines and a Japanese army element was ashore in Malaya. These great Japanese successes, achieved without prior diplomatic formalities, shocked and enraged the previously di-

vided American people into a level of purposeful unity hardly seen before or since. For the next five months, until the Battle of the Coral Sea in early May, Japan’s far-reaching offensives proceeded untroubled by fruitful opposition. American and Allied morale suffered accordingly. Under normal political circumstances, an accomodation might have been considered.

However, the memory of the “sneak attack” on Pearl Harbor fueled a determination to fight on. Once the Battle of Midway in early June 1942 had eliminated much of Japan’s striking power, that same memory stoked a relentless war to reverse its conquests and remove its German and Italian allies as future threats to world peace.

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” – attributed to Japanese Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto, in the movie “Tora, Tora Tora.” There is no historical proof Yamamoto ever wrote or uttered these words, however. In his biography of Yamamoto, “The Reluctant Admiral,” author Hiroyuki Agawa relates a somewhat similar quote written by Yamamoto Jan. 9, 1941, to Japanese journalist Ogata Taketora: “A military man can scarcely pride himself on having ‘smitten a sleeping enemy’; it is more a matter of shame, simply, for the one smitten. I would rather you made your appraisal after seeing what the enemy does, since it is certain that, angered and outraged, he will soon launch a determined counterattack.”

Jokes & Groaners Humor in the service The sergeant growled at the young Soldier, “I didn’t see you at camouflage training this morning!” With a broad grin, the Soldier replied, “Thank you very much, sergeant.” An officer was addressing a squad of 25 and said, “I have a nice easy job for the laziest man here. Put up your hand if you are the laziest.” All but one raised their hands. The officer asked the last man, “Why didn’t you raise your hand?” The man replied, “It was too much work, sir.” Q: What’s the difference between mechanical engineers and civil engineers? A: Mechanical engineers build weapons; civil engineers build targets. At one military base, the annual trip to the rifle range had been canceled for the second year in a row, but the semi-annual physical fitness test was still on as planned. One service man mused, “Does it bother anyone else that they don’t seem to care how well we can shoot, but they are extremely interested in how fast we can run?”

T

he Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) named Bruce Dietly as the 2016 Civilian of the Year (CoY) at an all-hands ceremony Nov. 17. Dietly serves as a program assistant for the Advancement Execution Division in the Navy Advancement Center (N3) at NETPDC, supporting the essential requirements associated with ordering, shipping, grading and processing Navywide advancement exams. “It was an honor to be recognized as Civilian of the Quarter (CoQ), and being selected as Civilian of the Year is over the top,” said Dietly. It’s always an honor to be recognized for what you do, but it’s also important to remember that we’ve got a great team here at the advancement center. It’s only in conjunction with the efforts of the team that an individual like me can look good.”

A retired senior chief petty officer Navy counselor, Dietly has worked for NETPDC and the advancement center for eight years. “I’ve been out there, in the fleet dealing with the advancement center from the other side, so I can associate with what Sailors go through,” added Dietly. “Now I’m the guy they blame when something’s not right – and this is my chance to fix it for our Sailors.” Cmdr. Doug Johnson, director of the Navy Advancement Center (NAC), said that Dietly is a critical member of his team. “His extraordinary work ensures Sailors around the fleet have every opportunity to advance in an extremely competitive environment,”

said Johnson. “Our NAC team members truly believe in what they are doing and understand that their mission is taking care of Sailors on a daily basis. Bruce’s prior military experience gives him a unique insight into the process.” At the award ceremony, NETPDC Commanding Officer, Capt. Lee Newton, said he is reminded on a daily basis of how much skill and dedication the talented pro-

fessionals on staff bring to the Navy. “Mr. Dietly is an outstanding example of how hard work and dedication have a direct and identifiable impact,” said Newton. “The greatest beneficiaries of his hard work are those Sailors who depend on a fair and responsive enlisted advancement system.” NETPDC’s mission is to provide products and services that enable and enhance edu-

Race fans will be gathering at Five Flags Speedway for the 49th annual Snowball Derby at 2 p.m. Dec. 4. But anyone who can’t make it to the track will be able to watch the race via a live, paybroadcast on per-view Speed51.com. “We realize that not everyone can make it to Pensacola the first weekend of December, and the Speed51 TV broadcast provides the perfect platform for them to still enjoy the events,� said Tim Bryant, promoter of Five Flags Speedway and the Snowball Derby. “This is the Super Bowl of short track late model racing; an end of the season ‘go-for-it-all’

style of race and we hope to capture some of what the event is about for those that watch our broadcast from all over the map,� said Bob Dillner, executive editor for Speed51.com. The 49th annual Snowball Derby weekend kicked off Nov. 30. Throughout the four days of on-track activity, seven different divisions and a flurry of race cars will be searching for speed. In addition to more than 125 late models expected to enter the pit area for the Snowball Derby and Snowflake 100, there will be more than 125 other cars – bombers, sportsman, modifieds, pro trucks and super stocks – will all be in competition. Drivers from all over the Gulf Coast region and as far away as Maine will visit Pensacola with hopes of turning in a

strong performance during the biggest pavement short track race of the year. At the end of the weekend, the list will be narrowed down to just seven winners. The top Snowball Derby starting spots will be set today, Dec. 2, during NASH FM 102.7 Pole Night. The Faith Chapel Super stocks and the modifieds will each run 50-lap features. The pro late models take center stage tomorrow, Dec. 3, for the Allen Turner Hyundai Snowflake 100.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
