Back to school: School bus safety BY DANIEL DUNHAM SPECIAL TO JOINT BASE JOURNAL

The new school year has begun so children all over Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling (JBAB) are making their way to their bus stop. Drivers, please slow down and look out for students making their way to the bus stop. Children should be cautioned about the danger of strangers. For children ages 5-8 a trusted adult should be at your child’s bus stop every morning and every evening. Parents please take a moment and review the following safety tips and discuss them with your children. Do not cross major streets or intersections to

use a bus stop other than the one you have been assigned. Students must not cross any of the following streets Monday-Friday during the hours of 6:45 a.m. - 8:25 a.m. and 3:40 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. without an adult: Angell Street, Defense Boulevard, McGuire Avenue, Arnold Avenue, and Tinker Street. Be at least five minutes early to catch the bus. There are blind spots where the bus driver can lose sight of a child: Front danger zone: it’s never safe to walk close to the front of the bus. Children should walk five giant steps ahead of the bus before crossing in front of it. Side danger zone: chilU.S. MARINE CORPS PHOTO BY LANCE CPL. SCOTT WHITING

MWR offers recreation destinations throughout the region BY PATRICK GORDON NDW WATERLINE WRITER

Many think of a summer vacation as a chance to get away, visit a distant locale, or venture far into parts unknown. But rather than endure a lengthy trip, Naval District Washington offers a number of recreation activities and destinations just down the road. One of the best resources personnel can use when choosing recreational activities is the Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) office located on any military installation. The Navy MWR administers a varied program of recreation, social and community support activities on U.S. Navy facilities worldwide. Their programs provide personnel and their families with sports and physical fitness

activities, child development and youth programs, and a variety of food and beverage services. Their mission is to provide quality support and recreational services that contribute to the retention, readiness, mental, physical, and emotional well-being of our Sailors. “The biggest benefit of using MWR for recreational planning is the information as well as some amazing deals that are normally not available for the average civilian,” said Ali Malone, Naval Support Activity Washington Information Tickets and Travel manager. “Discounted tickets, day trips & vouchers for hotel stays in select areas are just the tip of the iceberg. Our Information Tickets and Travel program also offers personalized

Innovative programs, centers keep MWR relevant BY DONNA MILES AMERICAN FORCES PRESS SERVICE

WASHINGTON -- Military fitness centers, swimming pools, lodging facilities and outdoor recreation offices might sound to some like a footnote among competing budget requirements. But Ed Miles, the Defense Department’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) policy director, and his counterparts across the military services see a close connection to military readiness. “We have a direct impact on the readiness and retention and resilience of the troops and their families,” Miles told American Forces Press Service. “When you have a healthy and fit force, it has absolute national security implications -- in terms of stress reduction, physical and emotional health and esprit de corps.” Congress has long agreed, authorizing funds since 1989 to cover 85 percent of programs with the most direct link to readiness: fitness centers, community centers and library programs, among them, Miles explained. Amenities such as arts-andcrafts centers, outdoor recreation centers and youth programs that are less directly tied to readiness receive a lower authorization of 65 percent. Meanwhile, “nice-to-have” offerings such as military golf courses, bowling alleys, campgrounds, food and beverage services and similar services generally must be self-supporting, with user fees covering all costs and overhead. A variety of factors has thrown this formula off kilter, Miles said. With increased privatization, almost three-quarters of military families now live off installations and tap services and programs in their communities. Many, like their civilian neighbors, have fewer spare dollars to spend on recreation. And with sequestration putting a big dent in already-reduced MWR budgets, the military services find themselves struggling to provide quality-of-life programs

popular programs running. The Air Force, for example, is testing a pilot program at six bases that gives qualified users 24/7 access to fitness centers, even after the paid staff has left for the day. Based on the results, the initiative could be expanded to more bases, Bensen explained. The Navy is revamping its community recreation program to bundle services and programs at one location. A waterfront recreational area at Naval Base San Diego serves as a model, combining outdoor recreation services and the ticket booth for local tours and attractions under one roof, served by a central front desk. Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, initiated a similar concept, consolidating MWR activities under one overall manager. New partnerships are helping to keep services going despite budget cuts. In some cases, military patrons now get free or lowcost access to community or commercial services and programs that their installations no longer offer. For example, Joint Base Andrews in Maryland established a U.S. AIR FORCE PHOTO BY LAWRENCE CRESPO partnership with a popular priU.S. Air Force Senior Airman Whitney Massey, 99th Force Support Squadron services journeyman, spots Airman vate-sector company that teaches rappelling, kayaking and other 1st Class Benjamin Hurst on the free weights at the Warrior Fitness Center April 2, 2012, at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev.

Hagel announces new anti-sexual assault initiatives BY JIM GARAMONE AMERICAN FORCES PRESS SERVICE

WASHINGTON -- Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel today announced seven new initiatives to strengthen and standardize the department’s sexual assault prevention and response effort. In a memo to the field, Hagel called elimination of sexual assault in the military one of the department’s top priorities. “This effort requires our absolute and sustained commitment to providing a safe environment in which every service member and DOD civilian is free from the threat of sexual harassment and assault,” he wrote in a statement. “Our success depends on a dynamic and responsive approach. We, therefore, must continually assess and strive to improve our prevention and response programs.” On May 6, 2013, the secretary directed the services and defense agencies to strengthen the program in commander accountability, command climate, victim advocacy and safety. The secretary’s initiatives announced today strength-

en these areas further. They include: -- The secretary directed the services to improve victim legal support. He directed the service secretaries to create a legal advocacy program to provide legal representation to sexual assault victims throughout the judicial process. He set Nov. 1, 2013, as an initial operating capacity for this and for it to be fully functional by Jan. 1, 2014. -- Hagel directed that pre-trial investigative hearings of sexual assault-related charges are conducted by Judge Advocate General officers. -- The secretary directed service secretaries to enhance protections calling on them to develop and implement policies allowing for the reassignment or transfer of members accused of committing sexual assault or related offense. Hagel wants this done in order to eliminate continued contact while respecting the rights of both victims and the accused. -- Hagel is requiring timely follow-up reports on sexual assault incidents and responses to be given to the first general or flag officer within the chain of command.

recruiters and trainers and their recruits and trainees across the department. -- And, Hagel directed the DOD general council to develop and propose changes to the Manual for

Courts-Martial that would allow victims to give input during the sentencing phase of courts-martial. The new measures should strengthen the department’s sexual assault prevention

and response programs, the secretary said. “Remember, we are all accountable and responsible for eliminating this crime from our ranks,” Hagel said in the memo.

Participants needed to raise money for local wounded warriors, veterans BY DONNA CIPOLLONI TESTER STAFF WRITER

Whether you’re a landlubber or know how to cut a jib, you’ll be able to participate in the Patuxent Habitat for Humanity and Patuxent River Chiefs’ Aug. 31 inaugural fundraising event on Solomons Island, supporting local wounded warriors and veterans programs. The event, featuring a 5K run, a 3K walk and the Fouled Anchor Regatta, was the brainchild of Chief Petty Officer Spencer Wait, a search and rescue air crewman with Naval Air Station Patuxent River Air Operations. “I’ve always felt the need to give back to our wounded warriors,”

Wait said. “I’ve been fortunate that, for the most part, my tours of duty were stateside and I appreciate the sacrifices a lot of men and women have made. This is my way of thanking them by helping out with this event and raising money for their needs.” Key volunteers from the Navy, teaming with Patuxent Habitat for Humanity — which has its own veterans programs — are urging people to stay local for Labor Day weekend and enjoy the event’s activities. “We’re raising money for two great causes,” Wait said. “We aren’t affiliated with the national Wounded Warrior Project because we wanted all the money to stay lo-
