During the past few years, NAS Pensacola has lethally controlled more than 25 coyotes, some at Forrest Sherman airfield and some in urban areas. Since normal trapping by pest control methods does not work with coyotes, the coyotes are scouted and captured by snares or killed by shooting, using a nuisance animal base contractor along with the USDA Wildlife Services Bird/Animal Strike Hazard (BASH) manager. Since October 2014, three large-sized coyotes have been taken, one at the airfield and two that were roaming in Navy housing. The latter two were taken both

Coyotes are not native to the Eastern United States, but have migrated this direction for many years and are now found all the way to the Eastern Seaboard. The lack of natural predators in this part of the U.S. creates a situation where coyotes are only controlled through nuisance wildlife control methods either by trapping, snaring or shooting. Since coyotes have become increasingly “urbanized,” they roam metropolitan and residential areas at night and in early mornings in search of food. They travel specific routes to and from their denning areas, usually land-

Rarely, have coyotes shown aggression to humans, but since they are wildlife, their actions cannot be predicted, especially if hungry, cornered, or traveling in groups, like free-ranging dogs (although coyotes are normally solitary hunters). The policy for coyotes on base is eradication. In the case of native displaced wildlife, trapping and relocating is normally attempted if the animal is able to be released and does not keep returning to urban areas or continues interaction with humans.

tion, and release back to the wild. Bottom line, coyotes damage the environment, are a hazard to life in urban areas and airfield management, and are non-native predator of endangered and protected native species. To control them, it takes a team effort between the community and installation managers. Community input is important to report coyote events and sightings so that installation managers can concentrate on the locations where coyotes are most problematic. Additionally, tight control on outdoor pets, food and garbage is important, and, never feed a coyote or any wildlife. Even though eradication is the goal, due to the presence of habitat and food sources, NAS Pensacola will continue to have coyotes ... no different from any urban area in the United States. But, with proper attention, the problem can be controlled.

Navy Ball one of those timeless military traditions By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

“This ol’ thing? Only cost me $39.99 at Ross,” I bragged to other military wives in the ladies room of the Naval Station Newport Officer’s Club recently. Despite my seeming candor, I wouldn’t admit that I’d actually spent a lot more on the torso-girdle-contraption I was wearing under my ball gown. The Navy Ball is held each October to celebrate the birthday of the seagoing branch of the armed forces, and it is pretty much the same every year: cocktails, photographs, dinner, speakers, cake cutting, and dancing one’s face off to a band of Navy musicians wearing “crackerjack” dress blues. This year’s 239th Navy Birthday Ball was not really unique; all five branches of our military celebrate their respective birth dates with similar events. The Army’s 239th birthday ball was in June, the Coast Guard’s 224th birthday ball was in August, the Air Force’s 67th birthday ball was in September, and the Marine Corps 239th birthday ball was in November. My yearly tradition always

begins with the hunt for a decent dress to wear. Mine was cheap, fit like a glove, and covered all the things that, at 48 years of age, I didn’t want to worry about – my lunch lady arms, my armpit chicken fat, and all the other wiggly bits, which I tucked neatly into that girdle contraption. I felt like a million bucks. Well, considerably more than $39.99, at least. We walked to the club from our base housing neighborhood, me in sensible flats, carrying my heels, which I knew would make my feet feel like they’d been fed through a sausage grinder if worn too long. Entering the lobby, swarming with Navy folks dressed to the nines, I slipped into my heels and hid my flats under my husband’s cover on the coat rack. Sipping wine and chatting with friends while waiting in line for the professional photographer, I suddenly felt self-conscious about my bargain-basement dress and the fact that, arriving home late that afternoon from our daughter’s junior varsity soccer game, I’d gotten ready for the ball in exactly 27 minutes. My insecurities were eased when another “senior” spouse

need for ironing or alterations. Seated at Table 13, I got a little misty during the parading of the colors and the national anthem, because, after 21 years as a military spouse, I’m not sure how much longer I’ll get to be a part of all this. We settled into our seats, under the warm ballroom lights, to listen to the keynote speaker. The soft sounds of glasses clinking and hushed conversations could be heard as the president of the U.S. Naval War College, Rear Adm. P. Gardner Howe, approached the podium. Normally at these functions, I would feign interest, half-listening while secretly peoplewatching. But this time, motivated by the sense that unique military experiences like this are precious and

fleeting, I was all ears. With all the honor and authority expected of a decorated Navy SEAL, and a bit of unexpected charm and familiarity, Howe spoke to us. “... The Navy is, at times, about spit and polish, about formal uniforms and ceremonies. But we must never forget that we are also about steel, and fire, and precious blood ... expended in righteous combat against intractable enemies. It is this warrior spirit, this Navy ethos, that sets our profession apart from the citizens we serve. ...” “Not again,” I thought, my eyes pooling up. “You sentimental fool, get ahold of yourself.” I blinked rapidly to disperse an oncoming tear, and applauded the admiral for his poetic and patriotic words. An hour later, I was barefoot, sweaty and doing my own middle-aged housewife rendition of “The Cupid Shuffle.” With our Navy friends both new and old, we danced the night away, happy in the knowledge that, no matter how long we’ll be in the military, our traditions, our experiences, our pride and our honor will stay with us forever.

Alaska resident? Sea Services scholarships available for dependents By Ed Barker NETC PAO

T

he Navy League with the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced Nov. 21 eligibility requirements for the Alaska Sea Services Scholarship for academic year 2015-16. The program awards up to six $1,000 scholarships annually for undergraduate education to dependent children and spouses of U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard active duty, reserve or retired personnel. It includes those who were serving at their time of death or missing-in-action status and are legal residents of Alaska. Applicants who meet eligibility requirements will be ranked according to academic proficiency, character, leadership ability, community involvement and financial need. “Scholarships like the Alaska

Sea Services are a great way to offset the costs related to an undergraduate education for dependents of our military sea services members,” said Alaska Commissioner of Education & Early Development Mike Hanley. “I strongly encourage dependents of our Alaska residents to apply for and take advantage of this and other scholarship programs. Studying hard, taking challenging courses and getting an advanced education are keys to success.” The scholarships are made possible by funds raised as a war

bond by Alaska citizens as a gift to honor the Sailors of the World War II Alanta-class light cruiser USS Juneau (CL 52), which was torpedoed by the Japanese, Nov. 13, 1942, in the Battle of Guadalcanal. After the war, the governor of the Territory of Alaska and the secretary of the Navy agreed that the bond would be left on deposit until an appropriate use for the fund could be found. In 1986, the Navy established the Alaska Sea Services Scholarship Fund. Applicants must show acceptance at an accredited college or university for full-time undergraduate study toward a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree. No more than two scholarship awards may be given to any individual during pursuit of the four-year degree. Applications will be accepted

through Feb. 27, 2015. The FY15 selection board convenes in April 2015. A selection board will be held by the Navy League Foundation, and the nominee packages with the highest rankings will be forwarded to NETC for final approval. Recipients will be notified and scholarship funds disbursed to the appropriate academic institution. Stacy McFarland, Navy League staff vice president of Development and Programs, said that the Navy League Foundation recently switched to an online application system where students can submit their information and upload required scholarship documents. “The online application not only enables faster and easier applications for the scholarships we manage, including the Alaska Sea Services program,

but it also allows students to instantly check the status of their scholarship,” she said. For complete information and a link to the application for the Alaska Sea Services Scholarship, visit: https:// www. netc. navy. mil/ netc/ PAO/ NETCNews.aspx? Art=pr_11114.pdf.

Navy’s first F-35C Lightning II squadron surpasses 1,000 flight hours By CNAF PAO

SAN DIEGO (NNS) – The “Grim Reapers” of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 101, the Navy’s first F-35C Lightning II carrier variant squadron, reached a milestone in November 2014 by surpassing 1,000 mishap-free flight hours in the F-35C. As the F-35C Fleet Replacement Squadron, VFA-101, homeported at Eglin Air Force Base, trains Navy aircrew and maintenance personnel to fly and repair the aircraft. “I am incredibly proud of the ‘Grim Reapers’ for accomplishing this milestone,” said Cmdr. Frederick Crecelius, VFA-101’s commanding officer. “With each additional flight hour, the men and women of VFA-101 are paving the way for the future of naval aviation.” The unit became the Navy’s first F-35C squadron after receiving the aircraft June 22, 2013, from Lockheed Martin, and completed the first check flight Aug. 14. The F-35C is a fifth-generation fighter, combining advanced stealth with fighter speed and agility, fully fused sensor information, network-enabled operations and advanced sustainment. The F-35C will complement the capabilities of the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, which currently serves as the Navy’s premier strike fighter.

DAY 12: Drive your way to fuel savings: Whether you are driving across town to do errands or across the country to visit family, fuel costs can add up over the holidays. One way to reduce fuel consumption is to empty your car after all your driving trips – an extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could increase gas costs by up to eight cents a gallon. DAY 11: Plug holiday decorations into power strips: From holiday lights to listening to Christmas carols on repeat, the holidays can take a toll on your home’s energy consumption. Even when you aren’t using lights and electronics, they still draw small amounts of energy – at an average cost of $100 a year for American households. Plug your electronics into a power strip and turn it off to reduce your energy bills. DAY 10: Install a light timer: When decking your house in holiday lights, use timer controls to lower energy consumption and save money. Timer controls allow you turn lights on and off at specific times, while staying in the holiday spirit. DAY 9: Use LED lights: This holiday, light up your home with LED lights. In addition to being sturdier and more resistant to breakage, LED holiday lights also last longer and consume 70 percent less energy than conventional incandescent light strands. DAY 8: Save energy in the kitchen: Between holiday baking

and meal preparation, your oven is probably working overtime. Cooking alone accounts for 4.5 percent of your home’s energy use, and when factoring in other kitchen appliances, your kitchen’s energy use can be as high as 15 percent. By taking simple actions in the kitchen – like using the right-sized pots on stove burners to save about $36 annually for an electric range or $18 for gas, and using the oven light to check on a dish’s progress to prevent heat loss instead of opening the door. DAY 7: Purchase rechargable batteries and an Energy Star battery charger: If you are buying gifts that require batteries, consider purchasing rechargeable batteries – which are more cost effective than disposable batteries – and an Energy Star charger for them. In the Unitied States alone, more energy-efficient battery chargers could save families more than $170 million annually. DAY 6: Buy Energy Star electronics: Are computers, TVs or other electronics on your wish list this holiday season? Ask for Energy Star home electronics for energy savings. Depending on usage, an Energy Star computer can save 3065 percent more energy compared a computer without this designation. DAY 5: Take advantage of sunlight: Use sunlight to your advantage this winter. Open curtains during the day to allow sunlight to naturally warm your home, and close them at night to reduce the chill from cold windows. DAY 4: Prepare your windows

for winter: Before you curl up on the couch in front of the window this holiday season, be sure to take steps to reduce heat loss. Weatherizing your windows can reduce drafts, and installing storm windows can cut heat loss through your windows by 25-50 percent. DAY 3: Maintain your fireplace: It isn’t the holidays without a crackling fire, but don’t let your energy bills go up with the smoke. Proper chimney maintenance -- like sealing your fireplace flue damper, caulking around your hearth, and installing tempered glass doors and a heat-air exchange system to blow warmed air back into the room – will help keep warm air in your house and cold air out. DAY 2: Install a programmable thermostat: Don’t pay for warm air that you aren’t using. By installing and setting a programmable thermostat, you can save money on your energy bills – lowering your thermostat 10-15 degrees for eight hours can save 5-15 percent a year on heating bills. If you are traveling this holiday, be sure to program your thermostat for energy savings. DAY 1: Get a home energy audit: A home energy audit helps you pinpoint where your home is losing energy – and what you can do to save money – by checking for air leaks, inspecting insulation, surveying heating and cooling equipment and more. By making upgrades to your home following a home energy audit, you could save 5-30 percent on your energy bills.

Family advocacy trains to promote intervention strategies By Paula Spooner 81st Medical Operations Squadron

K

EESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. – Every 15 seconds, a woman is assaulted. Every eight minutes, a woman is murdered by her partner. Seventy-six percent of female murder victims had been stalked by the person who killed them. October has been nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month since 1987. The Keesler Family Advocacy Program conducts annual education and prevention campaigns to promote community awareness, understanding and knowledge of intervention strategies. This year’s campaign was called “Thanks for Asking!” Endorsed by Keesler Medical Center commander Col. Tom Harrell, the exercise conducted Oct. 29 observed and measured how base bystanders responded and intervened when faced with volunteers who – unbeknownst to them – wore make-up indicative of interpersonal violence injuries. In keeping with the realism of relationship maltreatment dynamics, volunteers were male and female, military and civilians of all ages, ranks and relationship status. The injuries were realistic and plans of the exercise were not made public outside of need-toknow channels. Family advocacy representatives gathered information on just how base Airmen respond when faced one-on-one with an individual showing clear indications of non-accidental injury. These “victims” were likely a coworker, supervisor, medical

provider or a friend. Prior to the event, a full explanation on the purpose and goals of the campaign, the range of possible responses from bystanders and Keesler reporting options were provided to volunteers. They were asked to monitor the number of bystanders who approached versus actively ignoring them and to further observe the behavioral reactions of the people around them. Business-sized information cards were provided to issue to bystanders. If approached by an active bystander during the experiment, the volunteers were instructed to provide a pre-printed card detailing the purpose of the initiative, information on reporting requirements and, most important, thanking the bystander for being a concerned wingman. The “victims” began the make-up process the morning of the event. Injuries included black eyes, bites, burns, neck contusions, defensive wounds, bilateral bruises, fingertip bruising and mild swelling. At the conclusion of the duty day, volunteers met to participate in the event hot wash. This was a critical part of the exercise, as “victims” typically discover that emotions run high. Often, the ob-

servations were not what they expected. They may have anticipated a certain co-worker to respond who did not, or encountered someone yelling across a crowded room instead of approaching discreetly to inquire about an injury. Others were amazed to discover that they began to think and feel like a true interpersonal violence victim, becoming tearful ashamed or angry. Following the exercise, several “victims” provided their personal observations of their encounters with co-workers and others during the day. “I did not expect to be so emotional,” said Capt. Brittany Chase, 81st Aerospace Medicine Squadron, said. “I knew that it would definitely be an experience but the shame and embarrassment that I felt was horrible. At the end of the day, I was just sad. Not only for myself but also for the people I encountered who did not

have the courage to speak up.” Reflecting on the experience, Chase commented, “I had my own mini hot wash with my flight about what I went through. Many said the scenario was unrealistic for me because they knew I was strong and would never let the situation get that far out of hand. I told them that there is no ‘type’ of domestic violence victim and that if I indeed had been beaten, their non-action would have made me feel so small, unloved and invisible. “Another comment was that I didn’t have a boyfriend or husband so the initial thought of domestic violence was never considered, or that since this was my first time coming to work with an injury, I could have just run into something, gotten into an accident or fallen. We discussed that regardless whether it is the first or fifteenth time; they should have asked me what happened.

“We ended by discussing the proper way to approach a potential domestic violence victim and the mandatory reporting procedures.” Senior Amn. Karla Salazar, 81st Diagnostics and Therapeutics Squadron, addressed the experience of being an intimate partner violence “victim” by noting, “It’s everyone’s business. We are trained to watch for these sorts of things and know how to react to them.” Although examining bystander response was a unique opportunity which will undoubtedly lead to improvement in reporting processes, the potential for increasing victim sensitivity and empathy was considerable. This campaign was not being conducted to find fault in anyone’s response, as much as it was to create an opportunity for insight, awareness and ideas on better ways to intervene when we suspect those among us are being victimized.

Whiting welcomes Operation E.L.F. By Ens. Laurence Clemente NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

T

he Chief Petty Officer Association (CPOA) and the First Class Petty Officer Association (FCPOA) are teaming up this year with the Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) to ensure that every family from Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) has a happy holiday season. Together these groups will be launching Operation E.L.F, which stands for “Embracing Local (Military) Families.” The aim of Operation E.L.F is to lend assistance to military families in the area that may struggle to provide holiday gifts for their children. Families wishing to sign up for the program can register with FFSC through today (Dec. 5) to fill out sponsorship information. Tags with sponsorship information will then be displayed on a festive tree at FFSC for benefactors to select. Discretion and confidentiality will be maintained between sponsors and those receiving

gifts. This long-running program at Whiting Field is entering its 16th year. “Last year, over 80 children were provided for,” said Gwendolyn King, FFSC deployment specialist. “Active-duty and deployed families have priority, but local veterans are also eligible for the program.” Additionally, anyone from civilian to active-duty may provide gifts as a sponsor. Those interested in supporting the local military families are encouraged to come into Fleet and

Family Support Center to select a tag for participation. “Gifts in the past have been anything from winter clothing to bicycles,” said FFSC counselor Jeannine DeCuir. Unwrapped gifts can be delivered from Dec. 8-11. Gifts are encouraged to be new and unopened items. “Year after year we consistently have more sponsors than families that need support,” one FFSC employee noted. “People always look forward to giving back to Whiting Field.”

Whiting Field crosstrains with Foley firefighters By Ens. Richard Krepps NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Approximately two dozen members of the Foley Fire Department and Navy Crash Crews were on hand at Navy Outlying Field (OLF) Barin recently for the first joint training exercise in more than a decade. The event was the result of a much-desired Mutual Aid Agreement that was signed in October between the Navy’s Fire and Emergency Services Gulf Coast and the fire department in Foley, Ala. Training kicked off with Lt. Kenyatto Mayes, Crash Division officer, and members of the NAS Whiting Field (NASWF) Crash Crew giving the Foley firefighters an introductory walk around one of NASWF’s T-6 aircraft and its numerous systems. Lt. Todd Anderson, Training Air Wing Five’s aerospace physiologist, guided them through the vital components of the T-6’s cockpit,

instructing them on everything from how to avoid accidently activating the canopy fracturing system (CFS) to releasing the pilot’s restraints. He also elaborated on the forces that act on the pilot’s body during ejection and the type of injuries they can expect to see as a result. Members of the Foley Fire Department then reciprocated by giving Navy personnel an instructional tour of their own equipment. The mood was light and the course an

introductory overview, but the information gained was critical. The most significant lesson learned was by far the respect demanded by the T-6’s CFS and ejection seats. The inadvertent activation of either system is a legitimate hazard, and that hazard is exponentially higher if an individual responding to the mishap is not familiar with those systems. “You guys are already putting your lives on the line by responding to our accidents, and we throw in a whole lot

with explosives, ejections seats, rocket motors, and everything else,” Anderson said, to reinforce the point. “If you guys don’t have the training, we’re going to end up with even more casualties.” While the Navy crash crews are still primarily responsible for responding to any Navy aircraft mishaps, the agreement authorizes the Foley Fire Department to respond as proximity necessitates and Navy personnel are not able to be first on the scene. The agreement also means that Navy personnel are permitted to respond in similar capacity to incidences outside of normal operations when warranted. “There could be instances where pilots radio that there is a fire just a few miles outside the fence line,” Mayes said. “Then our personnel will call and get the proper authorizations and go ahead and respond to it until the city of Foley is able to come in and take over. It works both ways.”

Military Divorce Active Duty or Retired

We are located near Corry Station and NAS Pensacola. As a result, for 30 years we have handled problems that are unique to active duty and retired military service members. We are able to handle most issues where Florida has jurisdiction, which may include Initial Divorce proceedings, Spousal Support, Child Support, Modification, Visitation or Custody issues Contempt, Email or Teleconferencing. In cases of deployment, regarding court appearances, many occasions relevant to these issues (pursuant to the other sides agreement when necessary), you can testify by telephone and never have to physically be in Florida for the proceeding.

duty, retired or the spouse of active duty or retire military. Child Support In calculating Child Support, in addition to your regular or retirement pay, the following pay is included: 1. 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.

DAY OF ‘Infamy’

Pearl Harbor

Dec. 7, 1941, raid on Navy anchorage, air bases drew U.S. into war Story, photo from Naval History & 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 mid1937, 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 mineralrich East Indies and Southeast Asia, a Pacific war was virtually inevitable. By late November 1941,

with peace negotiations clearly approaching 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 than had ever been seen on the world’s oceans. Its planes hit just before 8 a.m. Dec. 7. Within a

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.

short time five of eight battleships at Pearl Harbor were sunk or sinking, with the rest damaged. Several other ships and most 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 suc-

cesses, achieved without prior diplomatic formalities, shocked and enraged the previously divided 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.

Jokes & Groaners Last time I was here An elderly gentleman of 91 arrived in Paris by plane. At French customs, he took a few moments to locate his passport in his carry on bag. “You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs officer asked sharply. The traveler admitted that he had been to France previously. “Then you should know enough to have your passport ready,” the customs man said. The American said, “Well, the last time I was here, I didn’t have to show it.” “That is impossible ... Americans always have to show their passports upon arrival in France,” the Frenchman said snappily. The American senior gave the customs man a smile. “Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country,” he quietly explained, “I couldn’t find a single native resident to show a passport to.”

Navy training headquarters names top civilian By Ed Barker NETC PAO

The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced Nov. 21 the Senior Civilian of the Quarter (SCoQ) for the third quarter of FY-14. Rear Adm. Mike White, NETC commander, commended his civilian staff as an indispensable part of the education and training mission. “Our civilian employees are a critical component of our warfighting capability and are crucial to our ability to enable fleet readiness and respond to fleet needs,” said White. “Although it’s always a close competition, honoring the civilian of

the quarter highlights a shining example that’s representative of the highly-trained professionals we have throughout the Navy training domain. The exemplary work carried out by these patriots every day in training commands around the world is key to the success of our Navy and Marine Corps team.” Kelly Looney, a program analyst in the Planning and Metrics Branch of the Development, Planning, and Analysis division, was named SCoQ. According to Looney, transitioning from military life to civilian service allowed her to continue serving her country. “I definitely look forward to coming to work every day,” said

Looney. “After retiring from military service, I hoped to find a job that continued to provide some of the challenges and rewards that I experienced serving in the Navy. My current position in N5 allowed me to develop a measurement system that will help drive decisions in the training and education enterprise and help ensure that our Navy-Marine Corps team gets the training necessary to support fleet readiness.” Michele Harrison, the Planning and Metrics branch head and Looney’s supervisor, described her performance and professionalism as exceptional. “Ms. Looney’s efforts have made a significant contribution to NETC’s mission and opera-

Kelly Looney

tions,” said Harrison. “She developed a model to calculate performance indicators that measure the speed at which students enter the initial training path by rating, validating the

training measurement process and explaining the concept and business rules to the learning centers, ensuring their full support for the initiative. Her efforts will show significant benefits for the foreseeable future.” NETC is the largest shore command in the Navy and is comprised of more than 12,000 military and staff personnel at more than 230 subordinate activities and detachments in the United States and at remote sites overseas. NETC provides training and education to more than 31,000 students on any given day. For more news from Naval Education and Training Command, visit www. navy. mil/ local/ cnet/.

Navy College Office open house draws schools, service members together Story, photo from Navy College

NAS Pensacola’s Navy College Office, located in Bldg. 634, held an open house event Nov. 13. The director of the Navy College Office, NAS Pensacola, Elise McGuire, wanted Sailors to have access to information regarding institutions (on base and off base) in order to help them to make informed decision regarding their educational goal. “The purpose of the open house was to allow students to ask representatives about their programs and to provide information about their upcoming spring semester,” said Andrea Franklin, a NASP Navy College Office education technician who helped organize the event. Fifteen academic institutions were invited to the open house to help strengthen relationships with new and existing Sailors. Thirteen schools attended: American Military University, Central Texas College, Coastline Community College, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical Uni-

versity, Pensacola State College, Post University, Saint Leo University, Southern Illinois University, Thomas Edison State College, Troy University, University of Maryland University College, University of Phoenix and University of West Florida.

The open house was well received by base personnel. Comments from NAS Pensacola’s active-duty service members ranged from “friendly people and the abundant amount of information available,” to “I love being able to ‘shop’ multiple schools at the same time.” The United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP) is a formal military training program that provides active-duty service members the opportunity to improve their job skills and to complete their civilian apprenticeship requirements while on active duty. USMAP brought an abundance of information to the open house regarding qualifications required to enroll in the program and the trades available. Sailors told Navy College staffers that they thought the USMAP representatives were superb and very knowledgeable.

Gulf Islands National Seashore plans fee changes From National Park Service

The National Park Service has established a new nationwide entrance fee rate structure, with a goal for all parks to implement the new rates by 2017. Similar parks are grouped into one of four different tiers. Gulf Islands National Seashore has been placed in Group 2. Group 1 includes many smaller parks and the largest parks fall into Group 4. The proposed rates would be as follows: • Group 1: $30 for annual pass, $15 per vehicle, $7 per person and $10 per motorcycle. • Group 2: $40 for annual pass, $20 per vehicle, $10 per person, and $15

per motorcycle. • Group 3: $50 for annual pass, $25 per vehicle, $12 per person and $20 per motorcycle. Group 4: $60 for annual pass, $30 per vehicle, $15 per person and $25 per motorcycle. The entrance fees for Gulf Islands National Seashore – currently $8 per vehicle, $25 for annual pass – have been in place since 2002. Typically entrance fees are increased incrementally about every five years. Between 2004-2009 the park was recovering from hurricanes Ivan, Dennis and Katrina, and as a result the park’s entrance fees have remained considerably below even Group 1 rates. Parks have the latitude to phase increases

Your City, Your Magazine

over time to meet the national rate structure. Gulf Islands is proposing to adopt the Group 1 fee structure in 2015, with the intent to eventually consider Group 2 fees to bring it in line with other similar parks. Entrance fees are not charged to persons younger than 16 or holders special passes. The fees grant access for seven days to all Seashore locations. Officials are proposing adding entrance fees at the Okaloosa area and Fort Barrancas, and moving fee collection at the Santa Rosa Area from Opal Beach to the east and west boundaries on J. Earle Bowden Way (Highway 399). Entrance fees would be charged at Santa Rosa area during the recreation season, daytime hours, and the scenic drive and beaches would be open free at other times.

The smell of fresh-cut trees and holiday spirit will fill the air from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. today, Dec. 5, during the Holiday Tree Lighting and Trees for Troops event on the Radford Fitness Center lawn. As part of the Trees For Troops program, the Spirit of Christmas Foundation in conjunction with FedEx will be giving away more than 200 fresh-cut trees to active-duty military E-6 and below from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Vouchers for trees had to be picked up in advance. Since 2005, the nationwide Trees for Troops program has donated and delivered thousands of trees to military families across the world. The tree give away also is part of the MWR Holiday Tree Lighting celebration.

Families will be treated to an evening filled with holiday fun, starting with Santa Claus arriving by fire truck. Hot chocolate and Christmas cookies will be served and visitors will be able to have their photos taken with Santa. More than 500 people attended last year’s Holiday Tree Lighting event. Activities for children will include face painting, finger print art and play time in the children’s zone, which will feature bounce houses, Spider Mountain, an obstacle course and more. With a flick of the switch, the evening will end with the 30-foot tree being illuminated – marking the start of the holiday season at NAS Pensacola. For more information, call 452-3806, ext. 3100.

COMMAND LINES

SAPR 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.
