Santa arrives at NAS Pensacolaʼs Selected Childrenʼs Christmas Party ... Santa Claus greets the crowd at the Selected Children’s Christmas Party Dec. 5 at the Fred G. Smalley Youth Center aboard NAS Pensacola. Guests included 101 underprivileged children from elementary schools in the Pensacola area, who were escorted by volunteers. The children were treated to special activities, lunch and each one received a gift from Santa. This year, the event was sponsored by the First Class Petty Officers Association (FCPOA) with participation from a variety of NASP departments and members of the Navy Wives Club.

NAS Pensacola’s command master chiefs (CMC) have earned their place in the base’s history – and now have a permanent record of it. A plaque was unveiled Dec. 11 in NASP CMDCM(SW/AW) Michael Dollen’s office which lists all of the former CMCs. The board is similar to the one which lists all of the commanding officers of NAS Pensacola. The former CMCs were invited to attend the ceremony, which was held in command headquarters, Bldg. 1500. Many of them still live in the Pensacola area. The current Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON), Michael D. Stevens, served as NASP’s CMDCM from 2005-2006. Stevens was also invited but was unable to attend. “It commemorates the great master chiefs who have led the helm here at NAS Pensacola,” NASP Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Plummer said. “This is a great testament to all of you who have served here before.” Former CMDCM(AW) Clint Mims, who today works as a maintenance man-

ager with base contractor Regal Select Services Inc., recalled his tenure as base command master chief with fondness. “(It was an) opportunity to have the privilege and honor to work with such an outstanding civilian staff as well as military,” Mims said. “What we called it back then was ‘welcome to working in paradise.’ ” Mims thought the plaque appropriate. “This is historic, and I think history and tradition are an important part of our Navy. We should never forget the men and women who have laid the groundwork for

World War II, Pearl Harbor anniversary remembered at museum Story, photo by Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

Hundreds of area residents, civilians, service members and veterans attended a Dec. 7 World War II remembrance at the National Naval Aviation Museum. The two-hour program, with narration from museum volunteer Bob Pisz, included a multimedia presentation of the key events of the war years, accompanied by live music from the Tate High School Band. Special guests included eight local veterans, survivors of the Dec. 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor – Bill Braddock, Jay

Phillips. The group sat in the front row with the widows of other local Pearl Harbor vets:

Angie Engel, Ann Glaeser and Dottie Graziani. This Dec. 7 marked the 71st anniversary of the Japanese sneak attack on the Pacific fleet’s anchorage at Pearl Harbor; more than 2,400 service members were killed in that attack, which plunged the nation into war. The presentation was followed by guest speaker, local author and Marine veteran Dr. Sid Phillips. Guadalcanal veteran Phillips’ character starred in HBO’s “The Pacific,” a series which followed the battles of World War II through the experiences of its four characters. Phillips’ recollections, both vivid and sometimes humorous, pro-

vided an insight into the turbulent days of the war. An animated question-and-answer session with the crowd followed, and afterward Phillips signed copies of his combat memoir, “You’ll Be Sor-ree!” Phillips, who graduated from high school in June 1941, recalled the moments of hearing about the Pearl Harbor attack on the radio – and his decision to enlist. He had been enjoying a vanilla milkshake at a soda fountain in downtown Mobile when the word came. “It was about 2 o’clock in the afternoon, that Sunday, Dec. 7, when we began

us.” Mims left NASP in 1999 and went on to Patrol Squadron VP-10 and his final tour as command master chief at NAS Brunswick, Maine. The senior enlisted leadership position was developed in the late 1970s; NAS Pensacola’s first CMC, AFCM John B. Craigie, came aboard in 1981. “There was no command master chief of NAS Pensacola prior to 1981,” Dollen said. “Prior to that there was a leading master chief, but there was no person designated to work directly for the CO as the senior enlisted adviser to the commanding officer.” NASP Public Affairs Officer Harry White spoke about the importance of the CMC’s role shortly before the ceremony. “Today’s event is about affording recognition to the senior enlisted leadership of NAS Pensacola, going back to the very first days we had a command master chief,” White said. “The command master chief is the eyes and ears of the commanding officer in terms of enlisted issues. And is a very, very important adviser to the commanding officer in establishing programs which deal with the issues being faced by not only the enlisted personnel, but also by the dependents. The CMC is in a position to address the issues of the relationship and interaction between the enlisted force and the officer corps. So he’s a very valuable and very trusted adviser to the commanding officer.” “I am very proud to be a part of this group,” Dollen said. “The command master chiefs here at NAS Pensacola have been taking care of the Sailors and their families here for many, many years. Starting with John Craigie in 1981, and carrying through to Jeff Grosso, who’s my relief. One of the proudest achievements in my life was to serve as command master chief of NAS Pensacola.” The base CO took a moment to single out Dollen with his congratulations and thanks, as he concludes his tour as CMC. Dollen was formally relieved by CMDCM(AW/SW) Jeffery Grosso Dec. 6. A retirement ceremony for Dollen will take place Jan. 18, 1:30 p.m., at the Five Flags Pavilion next to NASP Port Operations. All are invited to attend. The former NASP Command Master Chiefs include: • AFCM John B. Craigie, 1981-1987. • AKCM (AW/SW) Thomas D. Batten, 1987-1990. • ACCM (AW) Clause G. Bricks, 1990-1993. • AFCM (AW) Michael A. Maciag Jr., 1993-1996. • CMDCM (AW) Clint E. Mims, 1996-1999. • CMDCM (AW) Dane M. Ruth, 1999-2002. • CMDCM (AW/FMF) Paul S. Orr, 2002-2004. • CMDCM (SW/AW) Robert P. Tokarek, 2004-2005. • CMDCM (AW/NAC) Michael D. Stevens, 2005-2006. • CMDCM (SS/SW) Steven A. Head, 2006-2008. • CMDCM (SW/AW) Osbond J. Kindle Jr., 2008-2009. • CMDCM (SW/AW) Michael F. Dollen, 2009-2012.

to get the news on the radio,” he said. “Every station was carrying news of the attack. I had two uncles that had been in the Navy, so I was familiar with the name (Pearl Harbor). “The news was very disturbing … and everyone had facial expressions of fright, alarm, fear and deep concern. I recalled some ladies started to cry, as the announcer told us the casualties were in the thousands.” At that point, Phillips and his high school friend in attendance decided to join the Navy the next morning. When they returned downtown the next day to the recruiter, they found “a crowd you never could have imagined, a line two abreast at the Navy office.” A Marine recruiter across the hall offered the boys a deal to get them in the war

Christmas tree fiasco has a perfect ending By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

My hands looked like they had been hit by shrapnel. The Persian rug was imbedded with sawdust, pine needles and sticky spots of sap. The trunk of our Christmas tree, which could be clearly seen through the sparse branches, was warped in the middle. That’s what I got for telling my husband to pick out the tree without me. That day, the base looked like a winter wonderland with fluffy white snow stuck to every surface. Neighbors merrily buzzed about, bundling children for sledding and stocking up on holiday provisions. I dropped my husband and our son off to help sell Christmas trees for the Boy Scout troop, and witnessed a sweet scene: twinkling lights draped, music playing, children savoring candy canes and a fire crackling. Dads could be heard wishing customers a “Merry Christmas” as uniformed boys loaded trees onto cars. Whatever “cockles” are, mine were warmed, and I couldn’t wait for them to come home with a beautiful tree. I had the perfect afternoon planned: bring decorations up from basement, put up tree, make hot cocoa, set up train, play Christmas music while the whole family decorates and

Molinari and her family are currently stationed at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, Fla. gazes at tree while snuggled in family room. I love this time of year. Three hours later the boys came home with a wrapped tree, and started to put the

trunk in the stand. My husband has never been handy, and moments like these are always tense. Sensing he needed assistance, I grabbed the top of the tree. “Ow!” I wailed, looking down at four tiny pinholes in my thumb. “What kind of tree is this, anyway?” “I don’t know … a fir, a spruce, how the heck do I know,” he stammered. Wearing gloves, we secured the tree in its stand and began to lift. “Uh oh,” I said when the tree was at 10 o’clock. “What?” my husband barked, nervously. “It’s not going to fit. How tall is this thing, anyway?” “I don’t know … but we have high ceilings, right?” “No, Hon, we have low ceilings, remember?” I said, trying to remain calm. My husband had always referred to hardware stores as “haunted houses,” so home repairs were generally handled by me. But in the spirit of holiday tradition, we thought it best to not reverse conventional gender roles, especially while the children were watching. My husband emerged from our basement with a saw, and stood befuddled over our tree. I had seen this look on his face a thousand times, and knew he had no clue what to do. Quickly measuring the tree and ceiling heights, I declared,

“According to my calculations, you need to cut off one foot, eight inches.” He took a step forward, and I yelled, “No! Not from the top!” Wincing, I held the spiky middle while my husband sliced at the barbed trunk. A few painful minutes later, the bottom of the tree surrendered, and we were able to get the tree upright in the stand. “It looks so small now,” our son observed as we gawked at the maimed tree surrounded by sawdust and needles. “And it’s crooked too.” Over the next hour, we disguised the problem with as many lights as possible. “Are we ever gonna put the ornaments on?” our youngest whined for the thousandth time. After drowning their disappointment in several mugs of hot cocoa, the children finally abandoned us and ran off to play. Around 5 p.m., the tree looked OK, but my husband still lay on the floor with the train set, emitting various expletives. Having found the manual too confusing, he winged it. Not surprisingly, the train would not budge. I didn’t want to reinforce his “if-I-screw-this-up-she’ll-fixit-anyway” habit, but I couldn’t take it anymore. I opened the manual, found the diagram of track configurations, assembled an elongated circle, stripped the wires to expose

fresh copper, inserted the wiring into the correct terminal, properly positioned the wheels, turned on the power, and away she went like the wind. Exhausted by the fiasco, I ordered Chinese take away for dinner. “Great job with the train, Dad,” our middle child said as she crunched into a spring roll. “And the tree looks terrific, too, Dad,” our son offered with a mouthful of rice. “Yea, thanks Dad!” our youngest exclaimed as she threw her arms around Francis’ neck. “You’re quite welcome, kids,” my husband said with a wink, “that’s what dads are for.”

Santa on special duty at NASP during Children’s Christmas Party By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

olunteers shared a merry day with 101 invited guests during the Selected Children’s Christmas Party Dec. 5 at the Fred G. Smalley Youth Center aboard NAS Pensacola.

The party is held yearly for underprivileged children from elementary schools in the Pensacola area. This year’s event was sponsored by the First Class Petty Officers Association (FCPOA) with participation from the Navy Wives Club and a variety of NASP departments. Volunteers were assigned to chaperone the children, who enjoyed fun activities such as a craft station and a holiday dance-along with Pen Air’s Penny the Porpoise. Other highlights included a balloon artist, who made hats, animals and other items that brought smiles to the children’s faces. Santa arrived after lunch. Each child got to talk to Santa, who handed out pre-selected gifts that had been purchased by the volunteers. Note: Names of children in the photographs were not included at the request of party organizers.

‘Tis the season – to avoid home fires From Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast

Decorating homes and businesses is a longstanding tradition around the Christmas and holiday season. Unfortunately, these same decorations may increase your chances of fire, so we wanted to stay on the “cheerful” side of things and share a few simple fire safety tips that can keep your lights shining, candles burning and the “Joy of the Season” going. Picking the tree • If you have an artificial tree, be sure it is labeled, certified or identified by the manufacturer as fire retardant. • Choose a live tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when

touched. Placing the tree • Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 1 to 2 inches from the base of the trunk. • Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights. • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit. • Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily. Lighting the tree • Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both. • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands

of mini string sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of LED strands to connect. • Never use lit candles to decorate the tree. • Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.

After Christmas • Get rid of the tree when it begins dropping needles. Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage, or placed outside against the home. Check with your local community to find a recycling program. Bring outdoor electrical

lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer. Other decorations • Candles – if you go out, ensure they are out. • Fireplaces – ensure you have a screen and that the fire is out before leaving the house or going to bed.

• Hanging lights – use proper hangers – don’t nail or staple. • Don’t overload your electrical circuits. • Just use common sense and stay safe – if you have questions contact the Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast fire prevention Office at 452-2898.

Space heaters, decorations: check the power cords From National Fire Protection Association

U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 46,500 reported home structure fires involving electrical failure or malfunction in 2010. These fires resulted in 420 civilian deaths, 1,520 civilian injuries and $1.5 billion in direct property damage. Electrical failures or malfunctions were factors in 13 percent of reported home

fires, 16 percent of home fire deaths, 11 percent of home fire injuries and 22 percent of the direct property damage from home fires. Some type of electrical failure or malfunction was cited as factor contributing to ignition for 73 percent of electrical distribution or lighting equipment

home structure fires. • Replace or repair damaged or loose electrical cords. • Avoid running extension cords across doorways or under carpets. • In homes with small children, make sure your home has tamper-resistant (TR) receptacles. • Consider having addi-

tional circuits or outlets added by a qualified electrician so you do not have to use extension cords. • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for plugging an appliance into a receptacle outlet. • Avoid overloading outlets. Plug only one highwattage appliance into each receptacle outlet at a time. • If outlets or switches feel warm, or you have frequent problems with blowing fuses or tripping circuits,

flickering or dimming lights, call a qualified electrician. • Place lamps on level surfaces, away from things that can burn and use bulbs that match the lamp's recommended wattage. • Make sure your home has ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) in the kitchen, bathroom(s), laundry, basement and outdoor areas. • Arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) should be installed in your home to protect electrical outlets.

SAPR-F Master Mobile Training Teams deploying By Ed Barker NETC PAO

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Master Mobile Training Teams from the Navy’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Task Force are preparing to deploy worldwide to provide SAPR-F (Fleet) Preparation Training to command training teams, Navy officials announced recently. The SAPR-F training is the latest event in the Navy’s aggressive efforts to prevent sexual assaults and promote essential culture changes within the force. The 20 SAPR-F Master Mobile Training Teams (MMTTs) began deploying around the globe starting Dec. 6 to provide SAPR-F preparation training to designated mid-level leadership command training teams in fleet concentration areas and locations with signifi-

cant Navy presence. These teams will then deliver the SAPR-F training to their E-6 and below personnel, which must be completed at each command by March 31. Capt. William Marvel, chief of staff for the SAPR Task Force, explained that the MMTT preparatory training will enable the command training teams to provide valuable SAPRF training to Sailors at every command throughout the Navy. “These MMTTs are modeled after the very successful MMTTs that deployed globally in support of SAPR-Leadership training. They will provide individual command training teams with the tools necessary to stimulate an open conversation to reinforce Sailor commitment and encourage them to intervene with other Sailors to reduce sexual assaults and promote a cul-

ture of respect, trust and professionalism in our force,” said Marvel. “SAPR-F continues the storyline from SAPR-L, but is reoriented to focus on bystander intervention, emphasize the importance of disrupting the continuum of harm and recognize misplaced loyalties.” The MMTT training is coordinated and hosted by the Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) and will help ensure a consistent message reaches the force — sexual assault is a crime and will not be tolerated in the Navy, according to Marvel. “The SAPR-F training uses video vignettes and facilitated face-to-face discussion to provide command leaders the tools to develop and promote a culture of change,” said Capt. John Newcomer, CPPD commanding officer. “We’ve put a lot of

time and effort into working with our contractor to ensure that the training is innovative, effective and relevant with today’s Sailors, making sure they can relate to the scenarios in the video.” More than 1,000 faceto-face SAPR-F Preparation Training sessions are scheduled starting in mid-December and running through midJanuary, providing training for active and reserve component training teams. Those teams that are deployed and unable to attend a face-to-face train-

ing session can receive the training via Defense Connect Online. After command training teams provide the SAPR-F training to their E-6 and below, each command is responsible for documenting completion via the Fleet Training Management Planning System (FLTMPS). Lt. Erich Hill, assigned team leader for one of the Pacific Fleet MMTTs, will present some of the first SAPR-F training sessions, starting at Naval Base Kitsap, Bremerton, Wash. “The MMTT session

was very effective and really prepared me to lead the SAPR-F training,” said Hill. “The materials were spot on and the group dynamic and critique format of the MMTT session was really thought out and greatly appreciated. I’m excited to go back to the Northwest and train the command teams.” Sexual assault prevention is an important element of the readiness area of the 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative, which builds resiliency to hone the most combateffective force in the history of the Department of the Navy. Additional information on MMTT and SAPR-F training can be found at the SAPR L/F training web pages, including command registration for SAPR-F training: http://www.publ i c . n a v y. m i l / b u p e r s npc/support/sapr/Pages/tr aining.aspx.

Domestic violence awareness: when secrets cannot be secret By Special Agent Carrie Nelson NCIS

Life isn’t always easy. Money is tight. The kids act up in school. The house never seems to stay clean. And you can’t sleep at night because your neighbors are at it again. The shouting. The yelling. The glass breaking. You also notice that when the two of them are out in public, he interrupts her, criticizes her, yells at her and scares her. It’s one more problem that you don’t want to face. But, it is your problem, because this kind of behavior, public or private, is everyone’s problem. This is domestic violence. It’s not just something you read about. It doesn’t just happen in the movies. It happens in your community. Maybe it’s your friend, your co-worker, neighbor or gym buddy. Maybe it’s happening in your own home. Domestic violence is not just black eyes and broken bones. It doesn’t even have to be physical. It can also be verbal abuse, attempts to belittle and shatter your self-esteem. It can be threats and intimidation. It can be zero control over your finances, making you completely dependent upon your abuser. And worse, if your abuser isn’t hitting your kids – yet – your kids are watching this violence play out. And they are taking it in. Did you know that sons who grow up in a house with domestic violence are up to 1,000 times more likely to become wife

beaters? They continue the cycle of violence that they learn as children. Too often people think domestic violence can’t happen to them, or their relationship is too strong to fall victim to domestic violence. What may have started as a caring, loving relationship can sometimes turn into a gruesome and unhealthy partnership. There is no one face of domestic violence; victims and abusers can be of any age, sex, race, culture, religion, education, employment or marital status. The only common thread is the relationship between the abuser and the abused, where the abuser uses a set of behaviors to control another person. Whether the abuse is a one-time attack or prolonged aggression, domestic violence can have lasting effects and it can transform the home from a place of safety and love to one of danger and fear.

The effects of domestic violence on Navy and Marine Corps personnel adversely affect the Navy’s mission to train and equip combat ready naval forces capable of winning wars. Domestic violence directly impacts unit morale and readiness. When a service member lives with domestic violence, as either the abuser or the victim, they can’t perform up to their expected standards. And such behavior is not just wrong; it is also a crime. In some cases, if a service member is convicted of a domestic violence assault, even a misdemeanor, they can no longer deploy. The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) and Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) take the issue of domestic violence very seriously since it impacts mission readiness, thus posing a significant risk to everyone in our naval community. If

you have seen, heard about or felt the effects of domestic violence, it is your responsibility, as a member of the military community, to take action. This isn’t someone else’s problem. It’s not a “family issue” or a “private matter.” This is your problem. And you can make a difference. By keeping quiet, you are telling the abuser that their vicious behavior is OK. You must actively confront the issue of domestic violence, because not only is domestic violence illegal, it is wrong. It breaks down levels of commitment, love and responsibility. It destroys households, relationships, families and futures. Domestic violence does not solve any problems, it only creates more. Ignoring it further perpetuates the cycle of silence. If you are being abused, don’t tell yourself it can’t get any worse. It can and it will. Department of Defense statistics report that 33 percent of female homicide victims are killed by an intimate partner. While you may be afraid to report domestic violence because of career problems or a worsening of abuse, the Department of the Navy has resources to help you. The earlier domestic violence is reported, the higher the chances of successful treatment and the continuation of a normal military career. For victims or people who have seen, heard or felt the effects of domestic violence there are options if you come forward: restricted and unrestricted report-

ing. Restricted reporting allows the abused to receive medical attention without command notification or law enforcement involvement, with the exception being full disclosure to command or law enforcement when necessary to prevent an imminent threat to the victim or another person. Unrestricted reporting results in command notification, law enforcement involvement and FFSC participation, which provides victims with a number of advocacy services, including medical services, risk assessment, intervention and counseling. Remember: domestic violence can be prevented if people get involved. Step up and confront the abuser by telling them that their actions are illegal and hurt everyone in their family and community. Attitudes need to change, and you can start that change when you take actions to show that domestic violence is wrong and has no place in the Navy or Marine Corps. If you are being abused you are not alone. The National Domestic Violence Hotline is available to help. Hotline services include crisis intervention, safety planning, information about domestic violence and referrals for local service providers. 1 (800) 799-7233. Step up and intervene. Break the silence. Break the cycle. You’re not only authorized to report suspected domestic violence. You’re obligated to do it.

from

St.Nicholas

’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads; And mamma in her ’kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap, When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer, With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name; “Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On Cupid! On, Donder and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away, all!” As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky, So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my hand, and was turning around, Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot; A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. His eyes — how they twinkled! His dimples — how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath; He had a broad face and a little round belly, That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly. He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself; A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread; He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.” by

Clement Clarke Moore

First published anonymously in 1823, the poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” also known as “The Night Before Christmas,” helped create the modern-day conception of Santa Claus.

NASC IoY recounts adventurous naval career Story, photo by Ens. Alexander Perrien NETC PAO

AWS1 Bryan Hast’s life of adventure, spanning from the islands of the Pacific to the deserts of the Middle East, began with his decision to “get out there and make his own way.” As a 1999 graduate of Edison High School in Berlin Heights, Ohio, and four-year basketball player, Hast looked for an experience apart from the norm. “I didn’t want to do something ‘standard,’ ” said Hast. “I wanted to do something exciting. Joining the Army and becoming a Ranger had been my plan, but somehow the Navy recruiter got to me first.” After finishing boot camp in Great Lakes, Ill., Hast was selected for aircrew training and sent to Pensacola. He graduated near the top of his aircrew class and consequently qualified for the elite Naval Aviation Rescue Swimmer School overseen by Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC). “The curriculum for Rescue Swimmer School is one of the Navy’s most grueling training programs and is both mentally and physically challenging,” said NASC CMC Jimmie Carter. The Sailors who make it through Rescue Swim School are qualified to conduct search and rescue operations from rotary wing aircraft. “I graduated Rescue Swimmer School just before Christmas of 1999 and was sent to my ‘A’ School, or basic level training, to

be an aviation machinist’s mate. From there I got orders to Naval Air Station Roosevelt Roads Puerto Rico, in a fleet support capacity, attached to an H-3 helicopter squadron,” said Hast. “Back then, the whole battle group would practice shooting torpedoes, and dropping bombs on the ranges around Roosevelt Roads. We were assigned to pick up the practice rounds and bring them back to the ships for reuse.” Hast’s time in Puerto Rico ended after the naval air station was decommissioned in late March of 2004. He was then assigned to a squadron based out of Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Md., where the mission was strictly inland-based search and rescue. “We would get called for res-

cues all the time. But generally the Coast Guard vessels, deployed from a nearby station, would always come and snag the rescue from us,” said Hast. “One day we got a call that there was a sailboat stuck out in the middle of Chesapeake Bay. It was pretty nasty out that day, big sea state and gale-force winds. We got out over the bay and there was this boat with its bow sticking straight out of the water. The anchor line had been wrapped around the keel and got stuck in the mud. We saw a guy just sitting there waving at us. I sent both of my swimmers in, jumping out at 15 feet, and they swam onboard.” Following his time at Patuxent River, Hast was assigned to a squadron onboard the Hospital Ship USNS Mercy.

The Mercy carried out its mission across the Pacific visiting various small islands and countries in need. After his time aboard the Mercy, Hast was reassigned for two deployments to an air ambulance squadron operating out of Kuwait. Their mission, at the time, was to pick up wounded Soldiers and Sailors in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Hast now uses his extensive field experience in the rescue swimmer community to augment his lessons as the leading petty officer (LPO) for Naval Military Training (NMT) at the Navy’s Aircrew School. From predatory lending to drug abuse, NMT is designed to educate Sailors on the dangers faced on and off base, as well as the rich history of the service. Hast’s excellence in the position was recognized with this year’s award for Instructor of the Year (IoY) within NASC. “Petty Officer Hast holds the highest level of responsibility of any of the LPOs at this command,” explained Hast’s supervisor, HMC Keith Griffin, who nominated him for Instructor of the Year. “He basically runs the daily lives of all of our enlisted students, making sure that the transition from their initial training in boot camp to being a Sailor in the real world goes smoothly.” “He is a silent leader. One of those guys that doesn’t need to say a lot, but when he does, the students respond,” added Griffin. “At the same time he is able to relate to them on their level because he understands what they are going through.”

Hast tries to play two separate roles as an instructor. “When we are in the classroom I’m not some mean instructor guy, and out on the PT field I have to motivate these guys so they learn what it means to push through something. I think my ability to relate in the field and in the classroom, on the proper levels, is one of my greatest strengths as an instructor,” reasoned Hast. Griffin says quality instruction in the job of NMT is essential in the future success of newly enlisted Sailors. “These Sailors just came from a little over eight weeks of boot camp and are now being transitioned into the real world, they have just gotten off of mom and dad’s pocket book, and are now on their own,” said Griffin. “Petty Officer Hast encompasses everything an instructor should be and has exceeded our expectations for his role in NMT.” Hast suggested that the most important thing he has learned throughout his career is to take care of one’s Sailors. “I think if you take care of your Sailors good things will come to you. Everyone can remember one person in their career that helped them out when they were in trouble or needed some advice. If I can be that person for a few people, I think the Navy will always take care of me,” explained Hast. “The two rules that allow you to get ahead in the Navy are doing your job and being on time. If you do those two things, people will remember you. It’s simple but it works.”
