By MC2 (SW) Grant Wamack NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs Naval Station Rota, Spain welcomed 21 Sailors and an Air Force master sergeant to the chief petty officer (CPO) ranks during a pinning ceremony held at the Fleet Landing Recreation Center, Wednesday. The Rota chiefs are among more than 4,100 Sailors, Navy-wide, who were selected to join the khaki-clad ranks of enlisted leaders. The new chiefs came from the Naval Station, tenant commands and deployed units including U.S. Naval Hospital Rota, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 8, Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 1, Fleet Logistics Center Sigonella, Italy Site Rota, Navy Environmental and Preventative Medicine Unit 7, American Forces Network and the 725th Air Mobility Squadron. "To the 22 men and women standing here today, I hope you know how proud everyone is of you," said Capt. Pekari, commander, U.S. Naval Activities Spain. "This ceremony is more than just a pinning. Today you are welcomed and accepted as a member of the Navy's Chief's Mess. You were tested, both physically and mentally, and you overcame those challenges. You

learned about teamwork and perserverance.You are here today because, as petty officers, you combined hard work and leadership capabilities to become a Chief." After the new CPOs were pinned, NAVSTA Rota Command Master Chief Delbert Terrell read the CPO Creed to emphasize the importance of the role of the chief to those in attendance, and to drive home the added responsibility and higher expectations that come with the rank and position of CPO. “Your entire way of life has now changed,” said Terrell. “More will be expected of you. More will be demanded of you. Not because you’re an E-7, but because now you’re a chief petty officer. You have not merely been promoted one pay grade; you have joined an exclusive fraternity.” The CPO training process is a long-standing tradition, unique to the Navy, but service members from other military branches can request to participate. If they successfully complete the training, they are recognized as a genuine chief petty officer. The pinning ceremony culminates after six-plus weeks of intense training, transformation, and testing known as CPO 365 Phase II. Afterward, participants are accepted into the U.S. Navy Chief's Mess, a new position of leadership, and responsibility."

The Chief Petty Officer Creed Team Rota, The Chief Petty Officer Creed is one document that symbolizes the character, loyalty, passion and integrity of my fellow brothers and sisters. We accepted this challenged not to be “arrogant” but to be humble and committed leaders to take care of our Sailors, officers and their families to accomplish the mission, not just today or tomorrow, but each and every day, even in the face of adversity! As chiefs, we want to continue to pay it forward as our brothers and sisters paved the way for us and helped make it possible CMDCM (SCW/FMF) Delbert Terrell Jr. for us to be where we are at today. “During the course of this day you have been caused to humbly accept challenge and face adversity. This you have accomplished with rare good grace. Pointless as some of these challenges may have seemed, there were valid, time-honored reasons behind each pointed barb. It was necessary to meet these hurdles with blind faith in the fellowship of chief petty officers. The goal was to instill in you that trust is inherent with the donning of the uniform of a chief. It was our intent to impress upon you that challenge is good; a great and necessary reality which cannot mar you - which, in fact, strengthens you. In your future as a chief petty officer, you will be forced to endure adversity far beyond that imposed upon you today. You must face each challenge and adversity with the same dignity and good grace you demonstrated today. By experience, by performance, and by testing, you have been this day advanced to chief petty officer. In the United States Navy, and only in the United States Navy, the rank of E-7 carries with it
unique responsibilities and privileges you are now bound to observe and expected to fulfill. Your entire way of life is now changed. More will be expected of you; more will be demanded of you. Not because you are a E-7 but because you are now a chief petty officer. You have not merely been promoted one paygrade, you have joined an exclusive fellowship and, as in all fellowships, you have a special responsibility to your comrades, even as they have a special responsibility to you. This is why we in the United States Navy may maintain with pride our feelings of accomplishment once we have attained the position of chief petty officer. Your new responsibilities and privileges do not appear in print. They have no official standing; they cannot be referred to by name, number, nor file. They have existed for over 100 years, chiefs before you have freely accepted responsibility beyond the call of printed assignment. Their actions and their performance demanded the respect of their seniors as well as their juniors. It is now required that you be the fountain of wisdom, the ambassador of good will, the authority in personal relations as well as in technical applications. 'Ask the chief' is a household phrase in and out of the Navy. You are now the chief. The exalted position you have now achieved - and the word exalted is used advisedly - exists because of the attitude and performance of the chiefs before you. It shall exist only as long as you and your fellow chiefs maintain these standards. It was our intention that you never forget this day. It was our intention to test you, to try you, and to accept you. Your performance has assured us that you will wear 'the hat' with the same pride as your comrades in arms before you. We take a deep and sincere pleasure in clasping your hand, and accepting you as a chief petty officer in the United States Navy.” Congratulations to our FY16 chief petty officers!

Weekly Energy Tip: Appliances 1. Be sure to cover pots and pans when boiling water. Water will come to a boil faster and use less energy than if brought to a boil in an uncovered pan. 2. Regularly defrost refrigerators and freezers. Frost buildup increases the amount of energy needed to operate the appliance. Never allow frost to build up more than one-quarter of an inch. 3. When cooking on the stove top, match the size of the pan to the heating element. More heat will get to the pan; less will be lost to the surrounding air.

Save Time at the Fleet Post Office: Fill Out an Electronic Customs Form From The United States Post Office and Military Postal Service Agency
The United States Post Office and Military Postal Service Agency announced a new Global Trade Compliance requirement that will impact all packages mailed at Navy Fleet Post Offices (FPO) located outside the Continental United States (OCONUS). Starting Oct. 1, OCONUS FPO customers wishing to mail packages to the Continental United States (CONUS) are encouraged to complete a customs form online before they bring the item to a FPO for mailing. The new program will require customs form information for packages mailed from FPOs to be entered into the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) database. Customers will benefit from this procedure because tracking capabilities will be increased at each handoff of the mail. Customers will be able to track their mail from origin to destination with additional updates in-between. Filling out the customs forms online and bringing them to the post office saves time in line because it only requires the scanning of a barcode on the customs form. Customers without an electronic printed custom form can expect a lengthy wait, as can other customers in line, while their data is manually input into the Point of Sale retail terminal. Fleet Post Offices will provide head of the line privileges during lunch hours and high peak holiday mailing seasons. This will provide for speedy service to continue in the FPO lobbies. Postal customers can complete their customs forms online at http:// www.usps.com under the “E-Customs” when they click the link titled “Complete Customs Forms.” For step-by-step instructions, see graphic below. Online customs forms are also available under the “Click-N-Ship” option. Please contact the local Fleet Post Offices for more information on how to prepare your electronic USP Customs forms.

Team Rota in the Spotlight Sgt. Charleston Evans
By MC2 (SW) Grant Wamack NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs
A native of Seale, Alabama, Sgt. Charleston Evans joined the Marines i n O c t o b e r 2 0 11 . A f t e r completing three months of basic training at Paris Island, South Carolina, he attended Marine Combat School for a month in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Next, he attended Personnel Administration School for two months in Camp Lejeune. In 2012, he went back to Paris Island, where he served as an administrative clerk. In March 2014, he arrived in Rota, Spain and joined Fleet Anti-terrorism Security Team (FAST) Company. Evans serves as an administrative clerk for FAST Company and primarily processes and manages paperwork. He deals with promotions, awards, daily
correspondence, temporary additional duty (TAD) travels, and permanent change of station (PCS) orders. Additionally, he is part of Naval Station Rota’s color guard. “My job is great,” said Evans. “I like the research aspect of my job. Marines usually ask me questions and need my help. I really have to know my information and research lets me show them the correct answers.” Evans said his biggest accomplishment thus far in the Marines is getting orders to Rota. He said getting stationed here is rare and he appreciates the opportunity. Evans believes one quote can be applied to just about every aspect of his life and keeps him motivated. “You’re the captain of your own ship; don’t let anyone else take the wheel,” said Michael Josephson.

Getting to Know and Understand God Centuries ago the study of God was considered to be the supreme of the sciences. It has been said, “If we are wrong about whom God is, we will be wrong everyplace else. Because our view and knowledge of God will determine how we conduct ourselves with our families, in the market place and in our relationship with others.” The last couple of times we met, we spoke about having faith in God and if mentioning God in our casual conversations or in times of trouble, do we truly believe God exists? As we push forward in this study we now ask the question if God exists, which He does, is He knowable and how can we know Him? The answer is yes. Getting to know and understand the ways Chaplain Reggie Jones of God has been deemed life’s most challenging pursuit. The reason being, no matter how much we learn about God there is always more to learn. Because of this some may not believe in God, but think of it like this: to those of us who are married or are dating someone, we know there is always something new to learn about that special someone we have in our life. The only difference is the one we love changes over
time throughout the different stages of life whereas God is unchangeable. This unchangeableness of God is what we call an attribute or a character trait. The more of an individual’s character you are familiar with the clearer the image you have of that person. It is the same with God. The more we know about God and his attribute the clearer an image we will have of Him and what He desires for our life. But the only way to learn about the one we love or whom we seek to know better is to make a legitimate effort to learn about that person. Few relationships happen without effort. In the coming weeks we will look at several characteristics of God so we may gain a more precise view of who God is, what He is about and what he desires for us. But notice what He says about Himself in scripture, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest for your souls.” God states we must come to Him. He will not force Himself on us. The second statement He mentions above is that we must learn of Him. Learning is a process which takes dedication and does not occur overnight. This process of learning about God will not be purely academic but also experience, learning about Him through the trials and tribulations of our own lives. Lastly, God says once you come to learn of Him you will find rest for your soul because you will know that no matter what happens in life, He is in complete control.

Space-A/Rotator Update In recognition of the sustained efforts of the spouses and dependent children of our deployed military members, the Department of Defense (DoD) policy on space-available travel for dependents of deployed members is being updated to reflect the recommendation of the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission Recommendation Assessment. Effective immediately, dependents of military members deployed for 30 or more consecutive days are authorized to travel space-available on DoD aircraft in Category IV. This change will be incorporated into DoD Instruction 4515.13R, "Air Transportation Eligibility," which is currently under revision. Attention Patriot Express/CAT B travelers: Passengers traveling on the Patriot Express are encouraged to check in early and check back often. Travelers are able to check in and drop off baggage 24 hours prior to departure and up to two hours prior to departure. Not only does this help passengers drop off luggage but you can check to ensure your flight is still departing at the scheduled time. Is important to check back often prior to departure in the event the show time has changed. To check the status of your flight, please call Passenger Services at 727-2411/956-82-2411.

Mail Reminder As a reminder to all hands, the shipment of alcohol through the U.S. Postal System is unauthorized. Labeling the shipment as "olive oil" or any other liquid makes the offense more severe. Not only is it against regulations and can result in a postal offense and/or loss of postal privileges, it can
also cause loss or damage to other mail as these items usually break and leak during shipping. Please share as we have had official records, including medical records, ruined and other people's personal items damaged as a result of people attempting to ship alcohol through the mail system.

Secretary of the Navy Announces Innovation Awards Program From the Office of the Chief of Information Across the Department of the Navy our talented Sailors, Marines and civilians are continually creating innovative solutions to our most complex problems. Ray Mabus, Secretary of the Navy, wants to recognize the top naval innovators in our workforce today and inspire future innovators to continue developing their bold ideas for the future. The SECNAV Innovation Awards Program seeks to recognize top DON individuals or teams who made significant innovative achievements in Calendar Year 2015. The institution of the Innovation Awards Program is part of a larger effort to incentivize contributors and leaders of innovation across the DON. These efforts include empowering and rewarding innovators by incorporating innovation into performance reviews and providing cash rewards. The Innovation Awards Program will recognize innovators in the following areas: * Robotics/Autonomous Systems: To distinguish advances to these emergent and vital fields, this award recognizes contributions in robotics and autonomous systems. Contributions may have occurred within the science and technology community or within the operational forces. * Data Analytics: This award seeks to identify members of the data savvy workforce that implemented new approaches to using data analytics to improve performance, support decision making or provide meaningful insight to existing processes. * Additive Manufacturing: This award seeks to highlight DON achievements in the field of additive manufacturing. Submissions should focus on those efforts that result in direct benefit to the operational forces through cost savings, improved readiness, expanded fleet or fleet support capabilities or led to innovative warfighter solutions. * Innovation Leadership: This award seeks to recognize top naval leaders (military or civilian) who inspire innovation within their organization. This can be done by
creating an environment that fosters innovation or by removing unnecessary barriers that prevent innovation from occurring. * Innovation Scholarship: This award seeks to recognize top academic achievements by naval officers in professional military education programs and future naval officers currently in commissioning programs. Academic faculty should nominate top academic papers focused on the future operating environment and emerging operational concepts and capabilities. * Enlisted Innovator: Award seeks to identify top ideas from our enlisted Sailors or Marines. It is widely known that those closest to the problems often have the best solutions. However, because of the demanding workload placed upon our enlisted force, they do not have the resources to implement their good ideas. Not only will the originators of these bold ideas be recognized, their ideas will be evaluated by top experts. * Innovation Catalyst: An effective support network is essential for innovation to succeed. This award seeks to identify the contributions of an individual who has made a significant contribution to an organization by inspiring others to innovate or directly supporting the innovative work of others. * Outside the Box: The award seeks to identify contributions that are cross-cutting and do not neatly align to any particular field. All DON Commands and Organizations should nominate exceptionally worthy innovators for the 2015 SECNAV Innovation awards by directly inputting the nomination into the Innovation Awards portal or submitting the nomination form(s) found above via email to DON_Innovation@navy.mil. The deadline for applicants is Oct. 31, 2015. Winners will be announced in January 2016. The Office of Strategy and Innovation is the responsible organization for this program and will provide further guidance as it becomes available. Questions may be submitted to DON_Innovation@navy.mil.
Service Provider Announcement Pet Movement Concerns
We want to remind Department of Defense (DoD) passengers of health concerns associated with transporting pets, especially snub or pug-nosed pets. All pets are susceptible to the risk of heat stroke, respiratory problems, and the possibility of death. The risk is increased for snub or pug-nosed pets. For health and safety concerns, we recommend pet owners discuss their petsâ€™ susceptibility to complications with a local veterinarian prior to air transport. Ensure all passengers traveling
with pets are clearly aware of the dangers, especially when tranporting snub or pug-nosed pets.

Ronyé McCarthy Wins Ombudsman of the Year Award By MC2 (SW) Grant Wamack NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs There are multiple ombudsmen who work on base, but one stood out from the rest recently was awarded the Sybil Stockdale Navy Family Ombudsman of the Year Award. Ronyé McCarthy, who serves as the Naval Station Rota Ombudsman Assembly Chair, and ombudsman for Commander, Naval Expeditionary Task Force Europe and Africa (CTF 68), was notified that she won the award Aug. 26. “It’s wild. I feel so honored because of who the award is named after--Sybil Stockdale,” said McCarthy. “Stockdale’s husband was gone for seven years and she was able to stay focused and volunteer for Navy families. She basically started making a name for the families who had prisoners of war. They didn’t really talk about it. The media never mentioned it. They swept it under the rug. She said ‘You need to acknowledge us.’ She was really brave. It’s a huge honor to have an award under her namesake just because she did so much for Navy families.” The award is meant to recognize the efforts and dedication of top ombudsmen
across the Navy. CTF 68 and Naval Station Rota nominated McCarthy by putting together a dual package for her. Afterwards, she had to have an interview with Vice Adm. Dixon Smith, commander, Navy Installation Command (CNIC). McCarthy attributes her success to her family and her fellow ombudsmen. “Before I met my husband, I didn’t really know anything about the military,” said McCarthy. “I met my husband and I saw his drive and I had a huge respect for what our Sailors do and the sacrifices they make. He’s had such a good naval career and I have had a good experience being a Navy spouse. The Navy has been so good to us. I just want people to walk away with the same good feelings I have. We all have our ups and downs. Generally, we have a great life and it’s because of the Navy and our positive outlook. I wanted to give back. I wanted help people.” McCarthy is passionate about serving as an ombudsman and believes her job serves a vital role in the community. “I think it’s really important because if our families aren’t in a good place, then our Sailors won’t be ready and they won’t be able to focus on their mission. That’s what we’re here for. To give them that support.”

ABOVE: Chief Petty Officer Select Victoria Hobgood, right, holds a folded American flag as Chief Petty Officer Select Luis Amador salutes it during a flag passing as part of the 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony Sept. 11.
Fourteen years ago, the history of the United States was forever changed when terrorist attacks targeted the World Trade Centers in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. Naval Station Rota coordinated three events to honor and remember the nearly 3,000 people killed in New York, Arlington, Virginia, and those on Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 11, 2001. The day started off with a Patriot Run, which was organized by the Chief Petty Officer (CPO) Selects and Morale, Welfare and Recreation. More than 500 service members, civilians and family members gathered outside of the Navy Exchange, many in red, white and blue attire, and participated in the 9.11 kilometer (5.66 mile) run. A short time later, third grade students from David Glasgow Farragut Elementary School held a concert that included patriotic songs such as “God Bless America” and “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee.” And finally, to close the remembrance events, the CPO Selects organized a formal ceremony where a brief presentation was given; the attendees watched a video with the remarks of thenPresident George W. Bush and a flag ceremony where a folded flag was presented to a encapsulated book, with the names of 2,997 people who lost their lives that day. “As a CPO selectee, we organize a lot of events but for me, this is the most important one,” said Chief Petty Officer (Select) Michael Lantron, event organizer “After the attack, we all came together as one and acted, not as indivuals but as a unified group. It didn't matter who we were or where we were from, we all came together. To get a chance every year to come together and remember that, there is no greater feeling.”

The Dangers of Flooding ByABH1 (AW/SW) Ismael Gomez NAVSTA Rota Emergency Management Flooding is a common and destructive natural disaster that can occur anywhere it rains. This type of natural phenomenon has been present throughout history, mainly caused by the overflowing of a river, due to rain, tropical storms, and hurricanes. Floods can develop over a period of days, giving you adequate time to prepare; however, flash floods can develop in a matter of minutes. Flash flood waters are caused by heavy rain, levee breaches or dam failures. Rushing flood waters can be deeper and stronger than they look. These waters also are destructive and can carry debris, rocks and mud. Their destructive power has taken many lives and destroyed millions of dollars’ worth of property. The most susceptible area for flooding is in the lowlands, coastal reigns and any land that is below sea level. However, that does not mean you should not take precautions if your house does not fall into one of those categories. You don’t want to be caught off-guard if “Mother Nature” decides to try something new. Rota, Spain is a coastal community, so water from the mainland runs through the town and out to sea. In January 2015, Rota was completely isolated for five hours due to heavy rainfall that flooded the main roads, blocking access to el Puerto de Santa Maria, Jerez de la Frontera and Costa Ballena. Additionally, on Naval Station Rota, the flooding caused a wide-spread power failure, forcing services like the Navy Exchange, Commissary and Galley to discontinue services. The flooding also caused overflow at Rio Salado, which caused base housing to be disconnected from the rest of the base. If you find yourself in the middle of a flood, the best plan is to avoid flood water if at all possible and to try to get to higher ground. Make sure to develop a family communication plan and your plan accounts for what to do and where to meet in case you find yourself displaced. Having a fully stocked emergency kit will also help you and your family members cope with any flooding disaster. In event of a flood, or any natural disaster, tune into American Forces Network (AFN) via television, or radio station FM 102.5, for updates and weather alerts or on Naval Station Rota’s official command Facebook page. In the case of: ON-Base emergencies dial 9-1-1(Land-line) or 956-82-2911 (Cell phone) OFF-Base emergencies dial 1-1-2 (Any phones) European Emergency Line. For more information about flooding, you can visit: https://www.ready.navy.mil/be_informed/natural_hazards/ flood.html
