Military families competed head to head in the “Iron Chef – CYP Style,” April 20 at the NAS Oceana baseball fields to celebrate Month of the Military Child and promote family togetherness. Month of the Military Child is observed annually inApril to promote awareness of the sacrifices military families endure for the sake of national security, according to Cathy Mead, Child & Youth Programs (CYP) director at NAS Oceana. “Those kids serve just like the parents do. They have to endure the separations, they have to endure the moving, they have to endure some discrimination sometimes, because they’re the new kid on the block all the time. So it’s [observing Month of the Military Child] just to bring that up and let’em know that they are really, really special kids,” said Mead. Brand new donated grills from Home Depot, and key ingredients paid for by NAS Oceana CYP were provided for the six families to compete with. The families could also draw from a community table of items to create their dishes. According to Mead,the Iron Chef event is designed to give families an opportunity to be together and work as a team to reach a common goal, but also noted that each family During the “Iron Chef - CYP Style,” family cooking competition, Capt. Bob Geis, commanding keeps their donated grills, so every family is truly a winner. officer of NAS Oceana and a judge for the event, asks Angel Brooks, 8, daughter of AE2(AW) Michael Brooks at VFA-106 about the dish her family made.

Work of SAPR victim advocates recognized during training BY CATHY HEIMER Jet Observer A special training was held at NAS Oceana April 9 for the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program victim advocates. The program included a guest speaker from the YWCA of South Hampton Roads, a brief talk from NAS Oceana commanding officer,and skits and videos from the Coalition of Sailors Against

Destructive Decisions (CSADD). “The message is pretty simple.Sexual assault is a crime.There’s no way to make it pretty, downplay it. If you think about it, it’s one of the most heinous crimes out there,” said NAS Oceana Commanding Officer Capt. Bob Geis. Geis appreciates the opportunity to speak at the trainings because as the father of a 19-year-old daughter, a college freshman, the message of

preventing sexual assault has become personal. “It is vitally important that we do our share and you are doing it by being that victim advocate. You have chosen to do this for some reason… The program absolutely can only exist if you all volunteer,” said Geis as he thanked the advocates. “I think we’re doing the right thing as a service: we’re educating, we’re teaching intervention strategies,

we’re teaching to take care of each other — that’s vital,” said Geis. April is national Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. The Navy’s theme of “Courage” supports the Department of Defense’s theme of “We Own it... We’ll Solve it...Together.” Each of the four weeks in April also includes a sub-theme of courage to learn, courage to prevent, — See Program Page 10

NAS Oceana Safety Stand Down The 2013 Oceana Safety Stand Down is being held at the Dam Neck theater,April 30 through May 2 at 9 a.m. daily.

Commands are asked to RSVP with a point of contact and approximate number of attendance to Deloris Rogers at 433-2692 or email deloris.rodgers@navy.mil.

Commissioning programs briefing The Gary Sinise Foundation will host a “Tribute to the Troops” concert featuring Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band May 11, 7 - 9 p.m. at the nTelos Wireless Pavilion. The concert is free and open to all DoD cardholders with valid ID cards and their family members. Gates will open at 5 p.m. and all seats are general admission and on a first-come, first-serve basis. For the past decade, Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band have brought their exhilarating live performances to the nation’s service members and their families all around the world. Whether boosting morale on military bases at home and abroad, the band entertains, educates, inspires and builds communities with their live show. They cover everything from classics by Stevie Wonder and The Police, to contemporary songs by Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, the Zac Brown Band and much more, to include Pop, Rock, Blues, Motown, Soul, Country, even tunes from the 1940s big band era. “Lieutenant Dan” is the character Sinise portrayed in the 1994 film“Forrest Gump,”a role for which he earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.As Sinise began visiting troops around the world, people who didn’t know him as Gary Sinise, the actor, would recognize him as “Lt. Dan.”Those in the military also seem to identify strongly with the character.And so the name for his group was an easy choice: Lt. Dan Band. In recognition of his humanitarian work on behalf of the troops and veterans, Sinise has received many distinguished awards, including the Bob Hope Award for Excellence in Entertainment from the Medal of Honor Society, the Spirit of the USO Award,The Ellis Island Medal of Honor, 2008 recipient of the Presidential Citizens Medal and in 2012, Sinise was presented with the Spirit of Hope Award by the Department of Defense and was named an honorary chief petty officer by the Navy.

ETC(SW) Tracie Singh, 3M coordinator at NAS Oceana, is presented a letter of appreciation by NAS Oceana Executive Officer Capt. Kit Chope April 18. Singh was recognized by the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) for her efforts in effectively applying sound management principles to the command safety program. While driving through the front gate April 10, Singh noticed that front gate personnel had no hearing protection, although it had been requested, because of noise hazards by contractors using equipment. She obtained the needed hearing protection and personally brought it to the front gate.
