the debt culture that we have, it’s pretty easy, especially for service members to get that." Renee Rhinehart, FFSC’s work and family life specialist, said that FFSC is partnering with various organizations including American Red Cross, Child and Youth Programs, Morale Welfare and Recreation, Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society and local financial partners to offer military families and Department of Defense civilian employees an opportunity to increase their understanding of the importance of savings and personal financial readiness. “Military Saves Week is a great opportunity to help service members and their families in our community; set a goal, make a plan and save automatically,” said Rhinehart. FFSC is offering numerous free events during the campaign week to help people save money. Events include free credit scores, resources for creating spending plans, information booths, blended retirement system information, financial education classes and much more. Military Saves Week is part of the DoD Financial Readiness Campaign, which encourages Americans to take control of their financial status. FFSC provides training on the blended retirement system, credit management,
the campaign. The annual campaign, scheduled for Feb. 27 through March 3, provides installations the opportunity to promote tools and resources for a successful financial future to their community. Rota’s Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) urges the community to participate in the event and take the Military Saves Pledge. MacNicholl signed the 2017 Military Saves Week Proclamation after a short speech o n t h e i m p o r ta nce of the campaign and thanking everyone involved, including the Sailors trained and qualified as command financial specialists. “ I ’ d l i k e t o Installation leaders and command financial specialists pose for a group emphasize that it’s photo after the 2017 Military Saves Week Proclamation signing at the not simply a collateral Fleet and Family Services Center Feb. 14 duty,” said MacNicholl. “This one really gets at the heart of debt management, consumer awareness, helping Sailors, Airmen, Marines and military pay issues, paying for college, their families. Ultimately, being financially best methods for saving and investing, solvent is not simply being able to afford raising financially fit kids, smart transition that car, that house; I like to think that and thrift savings plans.

Program Launches Navy-Wide From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs
The Navy's 21st Century Sailor Office announced Feb. 6 that the suicide prevention program Sailor Assistance and Intercept for Life (SAIL) is now available Navy-wide at all Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) locations. SAIL, which was launched as a pilot program last August in the Pacific Northwest, is designed to provide rapid assistance, on-going risk assessment and support for Sailors who have exhibited suicide-related behavior. It is aimed at supplementing existing mental health treatment by providing continual support through the first 90 days after suicide-related behavior. "We are excited that we are able to bring this important program to the fleet ahead of schedule," said Capt. Michael Fisher, director, Navy Suicide Prevention Branch. "Having SAIL available across the Navy is a great addition to the ongoing work that commands are doing to promote help-seeking behavior, selfcare, and support for our Sailors who reach out for assistance. Instilling hope is the hallmark of SAIL and we believe
those Sailors who take advantage of this terrific program will see its benefit." The Chief of Naval Personnel's Suicide Prevention Branch is partnering with the Navy's Bureau of Medicine ( B U M E D ) , C o m m a n d e r, N a v y Installations Command (CNIC) and SAIL case managers who are serving as FFSC counselors to run this new
New Navy College App Page 17
program. SAIL is not designed to replace clinical treatment for any suicide related behavior. However, upon receiving information from commands about a Sailor who has demonstrated suiciderelated behavior, suicide prevention coordinators will work with CNIC and in turn an FFSC case manager, whose responsibility will be to reach out to the individual Sailor to see if they would volunteer to participate in the SAIL program. Case managers will contact Sailors in the 90 days following suiciderelated behavior. Suicide Prevention is a cooperative Navy-wide effort that takes engagement, awareness, and action at all commands and ranks. BUMED and CNIC work together to provide a range of resources to include mental health treatment, s p i r i t u a l counseling, personal wellness counseling, crisis intervention as well as financial education. The Military Crisis Line offers confidential support for active duty and reserve service members and their families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Burglary is a Crime Of Opportunity SAFETY CORNER
If you were locked out of your house, would you still be able to get in? Maybe you keep an unlocked window in the back or a hidden key somewhere accessible? You may think this is a good idea, but if you can get in, so can a burglar. For a small amount of time and money you can make your home more secure and reduce your chances of being a victim of break ins and theft. Most burglars will spend NAVSTA Security no longer than one to four minutes attempting to break Crime Prevention Unit into a home. If delayed long enough, he or she will go elsewhere. Solid locks and watchful neighbors who look out for one another can be big deterrents to burglars. Is your home an easy target for burglars? In nearly half of all completed residential burglaries, the thief simply entered through an unlocked door or crawled through an unlocked window. Check your locks! Make sure every external door has a sturdy, well-installed deadbolt lock. Key-in-the-knob locks alone are not enough. Be sure to never keep your name or address attached to your keys. The last thing you want is a stranger with your name and address and the keys to your house. Never allow people you don’t know to come in contact with your house keys. This includes parking garages, auto repair shops, coat checks, valets or loaning your keys to a casual acquaintance. Check your doors! Install a peephole or wide-angle viewer in all entry doors so you can see who is outside without opening the door. Remember, if in doubt, keep them out. Door chains are false security. They break easily and don’t keep out intruders. Never leave notes on your front door. Remember, the burglar can read too! Pay special attention to back doors and windows, where burglars often find the
easiest and most secluded points of entry. Sliding glass doors can offer easy access to a home if they are not properly secured. Secure them by installing commercial-grade locks and putting a thick-cut broomstick or dowel in the inside track to prevent the door from opening. To prevent a sliding glass door from being lifted off the track, drill a hole through the sliding door frame, and the fixed frame and insert a pin in the hole. Make sure you have your landlord’s permission before doing any drilling through doors if you are not the homeowner. Check the outside! Look at your house from the outside as a burglar would. Consider the following tips to deter possible thieves. Ask your landlord to help install outside lights and keep them on at night. Keep your yard clean and prune back shrubbery so it doesn’t hide doors or windows. Cut back tree limbs that a thief could use to climb to an upper-level window or balcony. Set up for someone to mow your lawn, rake your leaves, or collect your mail if you are going to be away for a long period of time. If you travel, create the illusion that you’re home by getting timers that will turn lights on and off in different areas of your house throughout the evening. Lights on or off 24-hours a day signal an empty house. Lock ladders and garden tools away in a garden shed that is secured by a padlock so they can’t be used to gain access to unsecured second story windows. Never leave a garage or garden shed unlocked, especially if it has a connecting door to the house. Instead of hiding keys around the outside of your home, give an extra key to a neighbor you trust. Consider posting a “Beware of Dog” sign, even if you don’t have a dog. Thieves don’t like dogs because they tend to bark and they can bite. The thief doesn’t necessarily know if you have a dog. Home invaders can do more than just steal property. They can cause property damage, assault, especially if someone coming home surprises them, or even rape. If something looks questionable upon returning to your home, don’t go inside to investigate yourself. Call the police from a cell phone, neighbor’s house or a public phone. At night, if you think you hear someone breaking in, lock yourself in a room with a phone and call Security at 911 from an onbase phone, 956-82-2911 from a cell phone or 112 if off base for local authorities. For more information in keeping your home safe, call the Security Crime Prevention Unit at 727-5297.

Those pesky processionary pine caterpillars seem to be all over our community this year. At this time, they are pupating and are at their most dangerous as they make their way to the ground to burrow. Here is a reminder of the dangers those creepy crawlies can cause to both your human and animal family. Did you know? Processionary caterpillar spines (their hairs) can lead to dermatitis in people, Photo by Krysta Murray tongue necrosis in dogs, or even anaphylaxis (a life-threatening allergic reaction). This is an emergency situation and the dog should be placed under a vet's attention as soon as possible. As veterinary first aid, it is advisable to flush the dog's mouth with plenty of water. Be sure to remember that the poison is also harmful to humans, so be sure to wear protective gloves. If you or your child is affected, contact a physician. As always be sure to establish a relationship with an emergency vet in town in the case that we are closed during an emergency. Rota Veterinary Treatment Facility is NOT an emergency clinic.

Energy Tip of the Week Use power strips to switch off TVs, game systems, home theater equipment and stereos when you're not using them. Even when you think these products are turned off, together, their "standby" consumption can be equivalent to that of a 75 to 100 watt light bulb running continuously.

Households Goods Move Ti m e l i n e s Compressed
From Naval Supply Systems Command Global Logistics Support Office of Corporate Communications Affairs The Navy Household Goods (HHG) global team announced Feb. 8 Sailors should expect a compressed timeline for planning and scheduling military moves through the end of the Continuing Resolution (CR) for fiscal year 2017. As a result, once Sailors are in receipt of orders from their detailers, they should submit those orders to the HHG website within 72 hours to initiate the HHG shipment process. The website for submitting orders is www.navsup. navy.mil/household. The consequence of the CR is service members will receive their orders only approximately two months prior to their expected move timeframe. Due to the way resources are phased and allocated under a CR, the Navy currently does not have sufficient funds in its manpower accounts to allow for the normal three to four month lead times for Sailors' PCS orders. Besides the time constraints, the impact of the CR will be exasperated by the usual annual peak season challenge of private-sector capacity limitations across the industry; shipping, packing, and transportation. "We are operating under a compressed timeline due to the current CR, and our personnel working at Navy Household Goods are doing everything in their power to facilitate PCS moves once Sailors provide their official orders online," said Rear Adm. James McNeal, commander, Naval Supply Systems Command Global Logistics Support. Navy HHG is providing scheduled, live webinars in an effort to help educate Sailors and their families on the HHG moving process. The schedule for the webinars is available on the www.navsup.navy.mil/household website. "We are making extra effort to ensure our Sailors and their families are taken care of during the PCS move process; however, I cannot stress how critical it is that the service member follow the guideline to submit their official orders to our website online as soon as possible once in receipt," said Deborah McGlennon, HHG program manager. "PCS moves are always a team effort between the Sailor, the family members, and the Navy HHG team, but they begin with that first action -- submitting the official orders online," said McGlennon. "That must be initiated by the Sailor." For more information, visit www.navsup.navy.mil/ household, www.facebook.com/NAVYHHG, or www.twitter. com/usnavy.

New App Offers Culture, Language Tips From Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs A new application for mobile devices designed to support Navy personnel and their families stationed or deployed abroad with cultural awareness and language resources, including Rota, Spain, became available for download, Feb. 3. The app initially provides material for six fleet concentration areas: Bahrain, Italy, Japan, Spain, the Republic of Korea, and the Philippines. The Navy Center for Language, Regional Expertise and Culture (CLREC) plans to continue adding resources on language, history, geography, people, ethnic groups, religious institutions, societal norms, behaviors, etiquette and culturally-appropriate behaviors for more additional countries as resources allow. "Whether you are stationed overseas or visiting another nation during a port call on liberty, cultural understanding and familiarization with the language are keys to being a good ambassador," said Chris Wise, CLREC director. "International engagement is something the Navy does and has always done. This app makes it easier than ever for our Navy team and family to access material that will help prepare them to be ready and successful abroad." User-friendly information on the "CLREC Navy Global Deployer" app includes operational cultural awareness training (OCAT) videos, culture cards, etiquette guides, common language phrases and guides which provide suggestions for how to go about learning a language. The OCATs, CLREC's flagship products, are narrated videos providing in-depth information on a country's history, language, social norms, culturally appropriate and taboo behaviors and more. The culture cards are guides for a specific country summarizing much of the information presented in the corresponding OCAT. Most include a guide to each country's naval rank structure and insignia. The etiquette guides offer everything from meeting and greeting to cultural values, to the significance of common nonverbal gestures.
The U.S. Navy Sea Warrior Program produced the app and Tracen Technologies Inc., a company which specializes in integrated mobile and web solutions, was the software developer. The CLREC Navy Global Deployer mobile application is available for download from the iTunes and Google Play online stores. To find the free app, search key words such as "CLREC" and "Navy global deployer" in the app stores or a web browser. Sailors can also find this app and many other Navy apps at https://www.applocker.navy.mil. The Navy's CLREC delivers foreign language instruction and training on foreign cultures to prepare Navy personnel for global engagements to strengthen ties with enduring allies, cultivate relationships with emerging partners, thwart adversaries, and defeat enemies.

By Unknown - Carteles del carnaval de Cádiz, Public Domain, Wikipedia.org
It’s carnival time in Spain. If you have never attended any of these events, seeing the groups and parades in the streets is lots of fun. There are some incredibly original costumes. The Cádiz carnival ofﬁcially starts February the 23rd and runs through March 5th.. The Cádiz carnival is a street festival and costumes are king…everyone dresses up. There are two long parades, the ﬁrst one takes place on the ﬁrst Sunday and follows the long avenue as you enter the city, the second one is on the last Sunday and takes place in the historic part of the city, both start around 6 p.m. If costumes are king, the coral groups are princes. On the Sundays during Carnival, these groups perform around the central market starting around 1 p.m. More than 100 groups take part in a contest at the Falla Theater to select the best in each category. For those that do not have a good command of Spanish, it is impossible to understand the words to the songs, but it is interesting to watch the groups since they are all in costume and the singing is accompanied by many gestures. Most of the towns in the area, Rota included, also celebrate Carnival, and of course, it is much easier to see and enjoy the festivities in smaller places. The most renowned carnivals in Spain are those of Cádiz and Tenerife. b
Below are this year's Carnival dates: Cádiz: Feb. 23 through March 5 Rota: Feb. 23 through March 5 Puerto Real: Feb. 23 through March 6 Chipiona: Feb. 25 through March 5 San Fernando: Feb. 25 through March 5 Conil Carnival- Feb. 25 through March 5 Sanlúcar Barrameda: March 1 through 5 Algeciras: March 3 through 5 Puerto Santa María: March 5 through 12 El Laúl The “laúl” were boats that carried wine from Puerto to Cádiz and had their hub in historic downtown Puerto (where “El Laúl Vinos y Tapas” is located, different from “El Laúl”). The essence of El Laúl’s kitchen is the same as the old Laúl’s tradition. Selecting the best staple products, keeping up to date with the latest techniques and combining with local and non-local ingredients. The kitchen is the heart of “El Laúl”. In it they pamper local ingredients to develop new recipes. Always evolving and changing. The same attention to detail employed in the kitchen is used in every other aspect of the restaurant: Its dishware, wine selection, table linens, glasware, garden, architecture and decoration. This meticulous attention to detail in the kitchen and the beautiful surroundings combine to offer guests the best culinary experience. They have an ample menu and some tapas , also varied ﬁsh and meats for the grill. The snapper tartar with trout eggs is delicious. Check out their web at laul.es or their Facebook at El Laul and you’ll ﬁnd out more information. Give yourself a treat and try it!

The Upside of Broken Down Cars “You have really bad luck with cars!” I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve heard that since I’ve been in Rota. It probably has something to do with the fact that I own four cars and three of them are currently in the shop. Since arriving in Spain, I’ve purchased three “Rota beaters” (only one of which is still functioning properly) and our “dependable” American car has been out of commission for three months. I’ve stopped counting how much I’ve spent on repairs during the past year because the amount is a little depressing. However, there are two thoughts that encourage me during this time of trouble, Chaplain Mark McCraney first, I’m not alone in this experience (misery loves company, right?) and second, someone cares about my problems (and He cares about yours as well!). In fact, my automotive anxieties remind me of two important truths: 1. God cares about our problems. There are more than seven billion people on the planet today, but more impressive than that is the fact that there is an allpowerful, all-knowing, ever-present God who actually knows and cares about each person –individually, personally, tenderly. His love for you is immeasurable, and He is specifically concerned about your troubles. How do you know that? Not only did He take time to create you, He also provides directly for you each day with food, shelter and clothing. Beyond these basic needs of life, God also gives you the ability to experience relationships with others and, more importantly, to experience a personal relationship with Him. He created you with the strength to work, to receive satisfaction from your labor, and to provide for your family, all of which shows His care for you. In addition to showing you that He cares for you through physical and spiritual blessings, God also tells you that He cares about you. Just one example from the Bible is 1 Peter 5:7, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.” However, the ultimate demonstration of His love is that He made provision for
the salvation of each person through the death of His Son, Jesus so that anyone who believes in Him can be forgiven of sins, have a relationship with Him, and enjoy eternity in His company. This is the God that we can depend upon in our most difficult struggles. Troubles and problems shouldn’t make us run from God; they should make us run to Him. No one loves us like He does! 2. God has solutions for our problems. Not only is God aware and concerned about our problems, I believe He has the best solutions to those problems. Anyone can tell us that they care and have sympathy for what we are going through, but we need more than just verbal affirmation, we need help and hope! God is uniquely able to go beyond expressing care to offering help in resolving our problems, and in giving us hope to make it through. Job 12:13 says, “To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding,” and because He possesses these attributes, He is able to walk beside us in troubles and help us. Before there Google existed, God possessed all the answers to our questions...and He still does. Why would we turn to another limited source of information and aid when we can depend upon the fountain of all wisdom and the possessor of all power? God provides help in many different ways -through His Word, through communication in prayer with Him and through His people in our lives. Through all these things, God can share His wisdom with us and help us to solve many of our problems. He may help by showing us a solution or sending someone to help or He may simply help us to see things differently. When seen from His perspective, the problems that we think are our most daunting might not be where our greatest need is, so He can show us the more critical issue that needs work in our lives. Or it may just be that He helps us to understand that the struggles we experience may be intentionally allowed by Him in order to encourage us to seek Him. While He may or may not offer direct divine intervention with the specific troubles with our cars here in Rota, if we are seeking truth, salvation, joy, peace, or wisdom, why search anywhere else for the one, true Source for every solution? God knows everything, even the depths of our hearts, and it is His desire that we come to Him alone when we need deliverance from a particular sin, problem, or predicament. After all, there’s no one who cares more for us or can do more to help!

Naval Station Rota Trains to be Ready for Anything By MC3 M. Jang NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs
Photos by MC3 M. Jang Hunter Vinson, left, exercise safety manager, speaks to the exercise participants during the Safe Haven exercise Terremoto Rumble, Feb. 8.
Naval Station Rota Sailors work together to assemble a cot for the Safe Haven scenario during the Terremoto Rumble exercise at the base fitness center, Feb. 8.
Naval Station Rota and various tenant commands practiced setting up a safe haven in the base gym Feb. 8 in the event of a man-made or natural disaster. “The purpose of the drill was to practice for the possibility of an event that we would have to set up a safe haven to provide temporary shelter for members of Rota,” said Margaret Blair, safe haven officer. “There’s a training plan that the base has implemented for this type of event.” The exercise, named Terremoto Rumble, involved a simulated earthquake and tsunami that required peope to evacuate their homes. The exercise helps prepare and train command personnel to provide services for up to 400 people affected by the would-be disaster. The exercise team, which includess members from various tenant commands and organizations, utilized the fitness center facilities to set up the Emergency Family Assistance C e n t e r ( E FA C ) , a s u i t e o f
emergency services. “It would be a one-stop shop for people coming through,” said Xiomara Bowes, EFAC manager. “We would have a great deal of volunteers here. We’re gathering all of our resources at that time to provide the information and resources to the families.” Community members who are available to volunteer during a disaster would be instructed by a volunteer coordinator to assist victims by their specialty or the facility’s need. “As soon as they came in, if they were interested in being a volunteer, we have a volunteer coordinator that would come in and register them,” said Hunter Vinson, exercise safety manager. “The volunteer coordinator would assign them to whatever duties that volunteers are needed for at that time and if they had a specialty area.” This year ’s exercise focused more on the training environment for leadership to better undersatnd how they can supporta safe haven. Blair plans the forthcoming exercises to be more involved with hands-on role players acting as affected people.

NEPMU 7 Maintains Safe, Healthy Fleet By Krysta Murray NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs Prior to twentieth century advancements in technology, many Sailors were ambitious explorers curious to discover unknown worlds and brave the unpredictable seas. They also risked their health, as many crew members often fell ill to common ship-life illnesses due to a lack of preventative measures, since there was minimal understanding about the causes and spreading of diseases. Nowadays, measures are in place and upheld by Navy and Environmental Preventative Medicine Units under the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC). Ships operating in the U.S Navy are required to maintain valid Ship Sanitation Control Exemption Certificates (SSCECs), which need to be renewed every six months following a ship inspection by a preventative medicine technician who determines the ship is free and clear of public health risks. Navy and Environmental Preventative Medicine Unit 7 (NEPMU 7) conducts these inspections regularly aboard Naval Stations Rota. During the eighteenth century when advances in naval technology allowed ships to extend their time at sea, scurvy became known as the “plague or scourge of the sea.” Poor diets consisting of a Photos by Krysta Murray lack of vital nutrients lead to vitamin C deficiencies.

Team Rota in the Spotlight Photos and story by MC3 M. Jang NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs
MA3 Stefan Lesniewski
Master-at-Arms 3rd Class Stefan Lesniewski, a native of Sandpoint, Idaho and a harbor security coxswain assigned to base harbor security, may be one of the youngest and junior Sailors among his department but he performs well above his pay grade. In the two years since Lesniewski has been stationed aboard Naval Station Rota, he has proven himself to be a qualified leader currently serving as a section leader. “There’s a total of four sections,” said Lesniewski. “As section leader you’re in charge of the tactical control of our section. As an E-4, I’m qualified to be a section leader and that’s usually an E-5 or E-6 position. I like to take charge of the section to show that I’ve grown as an individual at such a young age.” Lesniewski not only oversees his section but also trains his shipmates to encourage growth. “I’m the training petty officer for this section,” said Lesniewski. “So I encourage people to get underway, get boats going and practice their line handling, brushing up on the standard operating procedures, all of that.” He volunteers as a scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America every Thursday. “I’m in charge of supervising the safety of the Boy Scouts,” said Lesniewski. I teach them things like first aid, how to make fires and other survival skills. My older brother was a Boy Scout so it peaked my interest to volunteer with the Boy Scouts. I enjoy getting out there and I like constructing and teaching.” Lesniewski’s father, a retired Navy Sailor, gives him encouragement to make serving in the Navy a career. “I am planning on staying in, maybe submitting in an LDO package when I get farther up there,” said Lesniewski. “My dad was a huge impact on that. He
did 20 years and he had a lot of fun. He got out as a first class and he has endless stories about it. I like it. There’s nothing really else that I’d really like to do that I’d be passionate about.” Lesniewski mentioned that serving 20 years in the Navy would put him only at the age of 38 so his goal, post-military, is to work in a career field similar to his current rate and degree. Lesniewski is enrolled in Central Texas College to obtain an associate’s degree in criminal justice. The ambitious Sailor’s short-term goals are to finish school, advance to the next rank and train to complete further qualifications. “I like the position that I’m in at this point,” said Lesniewski. “I’m all the way qualified to the maximum extent that I can be. Right now, I’m working on picking up second class. I really want to pick up second class, I’d like to go to Level 2 Coxswain School, where you learn the tactical side of boat operation and finish my associate’s degree.” Lesniewski said one of his reasons for being so motivated is because of his “I could be elsewhere” attitude. “How many can say that they’re living in Spain with the United States Navy, work for the United States Navy getting a free associate’s degree, free medical care? Not a lot,” said Lesniewski. “That’s something that I like having that not a lot of people I knew back home have so it motivates me to keep going to stay and keep doing what I’m doing and kind of strive to be better than everybody else.” As one of the youngest Sailors, Lesniewski’s age factors as another motivation for aiming to be a great Sailor.
“I have to strive to perform above my pay grade, above my age and maturity level,” said Lesniewski. “Being one of the youngest, I’m not taken seriously but I like to think that I have respect from my chain of command with that aspect that I am section leader qualified and I do stand that watch.” Concluding his final year in Spain, Lesniewski is looking forward to his next duty station taking an interest to serve in Japan. In the meantime Lesniewski enjoys traveling and exploring Spain with his wife when he is not patrolling the harbor to ensure NAVSTA Rota is protected from any kind of waterborne threats.

Rota DEFY Seeks Applicants Drug Education For Youth Program, TwentyFirst Century Sailor Office & Rota DEFY Naval Station Rota is currently soliciting applications from 9 to 12-yearolds to participate in its yearlong Drug Education for Youth (DEFY) program. DEFY is a year-long, command s pons ore d d r u g d e mand reduct ion and comprehensive life skills program designed for 9 to 12-year-olds. Studies have shown that deployments, especially multiple deployments, tax the family's resilience and are associated with an increase in depression, thoughts of suicide, and risky behaviors such as binge drinking and drug use. Children of deployed military personnel should be considered at higher risk for substance use than children of non-military citizens. DEFY helps deter these negative influences. DEFY aims to strengthen youth resiliency and family bonds by using a science-based curriculum that provides the foundation for youth to learn goal setting, leadership and teamwork, selfesteem enhancement, and many other life skills. Local DEFY programs begin with a five-day residential or eight-day nonresidential leadership program called Phase I that is held during the summer. During Phase I, youth receive education on valuable life skills such as substance abuse prevention, social skills, self-
management skills, and fitness. Phase II is designed to reinforce the concepts and training received in Phase I. During the school year, mentors a n d s t a ff p r o v i d e p o s i t i v e s u p p o r t during group mentoring sessions and interactive workshops. DEFY sites also participate in activities that promote civic responsibility and expose DEFY kids to vocational and recreational opportunities. Parents must understand the DEFY program requires a year-long commitment to allow for the full benefit to their children. An evaluation of DEFY showed that about 75 percent of parents surveyed saw improved youth life skill development and about 67 percent saw improvement in their child's ability to avoid substance abuse and negative behaviors. "I think it is a great program for the children, because they're learning respect and safe ways of saying no or what to do in situations where there are bullying and drugs," said Carmen O'Moore, parent of a DEFY youth. Enrollment is limited to 30 youth and time is limited. To get your child involved in this exciting program, contact Petty Officer 1st Class Maria Garcia at 7272907 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how to apply.

Commissaries Start 150-year Anniversary Celebrations By DeCA Corporate Communications
Patrons can expect to see special promotions, contests and a lot of birthday flair as the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) and its industry partners kick off the 150th anniversary celebration of the modern commissary benefit. “From now through the actual July 1 anniversary date, commissaries worldwide will highlight the long history of the commissary benefit and the great savings and value the benefit has brought to our military community since 1867,” said Tracie Russ, DeCA’s sales director. DeCA is beginning the observance in February with kick-off banners placed at all stores worldwide. Over the next five months, other scheduled anniversary events and activities include the following: • Limited edition, specially labeled products using nostalgic commissary photos and the 150th gold logo • Celebrity endorsements at commissaries with in-store radio • Beginning in March and ending July 31, commissaries will use their “Wall of Value” locations for the “150 Years of Value and Savings!” directing shoppers to discounted promotional savings on products. • Other events will be tied to the month of May for Military Appreciation Month and the worldwide Healthy Lifestyle Festivals in June. Patrons are encouraged to check their local store for details of specific anniversary events such as cake-cutting ceremonies.
The 150th anniversary observance ties back to the official beginning of the modern commissary benefit on July 1, 1867. It was on that date, two years following the Civil War, that enlisted men received the same privileges available to officers since 1825 – the right to purchase goods, “at cost price,” from their post’s subsistence department warehouses. These sales could take place at any post in the United States or its territories, wherever the local commander deemed them necessary, regardless of location. As years passed, retirees, spouses and families also became eligible shoppers. The commissaries mirrored changes and progress in the civilian retail grocery industry, from self-service to product proliferation. As the nation sent its armed forces overseas, commissaries followed: Cuba, the Philippines, China, and Panama all had U.S. military commissaries before 1905. Surcharges came and went. During the World Wars, commissaries spread all over the globe, from Europe and the Middle East to the Far East and even South America. The Navy and Marine Corps opened their first commissaries in 1909-1910, and when the Air Force came into being in 1947, it inherited commissaries at Army Air Force bases and airfields. For many years, the posts and bases had plenty of leeway in running their stores. After World War II, the services began taking firmer control of their commissaries, professionalizing the staffs and creating career paths for military and civilian employees alike. By the 1980s, the four major services each had their own commissary system. DeCA was begun in 1991 to create cost savings and store uniformity, bringing together all the stores of the four services. “At DeCA we want to celebrate our military members and their families for all they do to serve this nation,” Russ said. “We may be throwing the party, but the celebration belongs to our patrons.”
Navy College Program App Available for Mobile Devices By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center Public Affairs A new application for mobile devices which allows Sailors on-the-go access to many features of the Navy College Program (NCP) is available as of Feb. 8. "The Navy College Program app offers Sailors mobile access to voluntary education planning tools, a counseling scheduler, and applications previously available only through the Navy College Offices or the Virtual Education Center," said Lt. Cmdr. Nick Turner, the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center's Voluntary Education Program deputy director. "This app allows the completion of required training, processing of Tuition Assistance (TA) requests, and helps Sailors obtain counseling without being tied to a computer." The Navy College Program app is divided into several sections for ease of navigation: • Tuition Assistance - Links users to the My Education WebTA portal so they can submit a TA application and view the status of existing TA applications. • Training - Allows users to complete required training, including the TA Course and the DoD Higher Education Preparation Course. • Videos - Provides video tutorials on the NCP, including TA and command information.
• Resources - Provides in-app and online information on the Navy College Program and continuing education resources. • Schedule Counseling - Links users to the Appointment Scheduler, enabling Sailors to schedule an appointment for education counseling. • Virtual Education Center (VEC) - Provides
contact access for counseling and assistance from the VEC. • Joint Services Transcript (JST) - Links users to the JST login page, allowing them to request their official JST. • In addition, the app includes an Emergency resources section and a Favorites section, which allows users to bookmark and easily access parts of the app they find personally important. Turner added the NCP app is targeted primarily at active-duty members and will be a key tool for educational service officers and career counselors. The app's tools are relevant to all Navy applicants, current Sailors, transitioning Sailors, and veterans. The app features public content only; no authentication or authorization required. The NCP app is a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) tool designed to work on personal devices outside of the Navy Marine Corps Internet (NMCI) domain. Users can download the app from the iTunes and Google Play online stores at no cost. To find the free Navy College Program app, search "Navy College" or "NCP" in app stores or in your Web browser. Sailors can also find this app and many others through the Navy App Locker, http://www.applocker.navy.mil.

Meat Croquettes (Croquetas de Puchero) We really hope you cooked the Puchero (our most traditional local broth), we shared with you last week, and that it turned out great. This week we want to cook another very easy and popular recipe in Spain… Croquetas de Puchero, cooked with the meat from this traditional local broth. You will love them! It is the perfect starter for a nice meal. We promise you that once you start, you cannot stop eating them. They are really delicious!
la By Pi
INGREDIENTS • 9 oz. meat from the broth, the veal and the chicken. • 1 medium size yellow onion • 2 cloves of garlic
• • • • •
4 tablespoons wheat flour 3 ¼ cups milk ½ broth stock (bouillon) cube Ground nutmeg Some salt
TO PREPARE • • • • • •
We will start by chopping finely the meats, the veal and the chicken from the broth Then we will fry the finely chopped onion and the clove of garlic in a frying pan with three spoons olive oil on medium heat Once they are translucent, we are going to add the chopped meat, stir it and then sauté it several minutes until it is well done. We add then the flour and stir it to slightly toast it. We are going to season it with the salt, the minced mint leaves, ground nutmeg and black pepper. We will warm up the milk and then add the ½ bouillon cube dissolved in ½ cup (125 ml) warm water. Then we are going to start adding it slowly to the pan while stirring. We will just see how the croquette dough
• • • • •
Ground Black pepper Some mint leaves 1 egg Bread crumbs Mild olive oil
begins to thicken. We will keep on stirring until we see that the mixture no longer sticks to the side of the pan. We take it off of the heat, pour it on a baking tray and set aside to cool and then we put it into the fridge for a couple of hours. Now it is the moment to make our “Puchero” meat croquettes, we cut the dough into about 3 ¼ inches by 3 ¼ inch (8 cm) squares and then make the shape of the croquettes by hand. We are going to dredge them first in a beaten egg bath and then cover them with the bread crumbs. And then, to finish with, we are going to fry them in hot olive oil, though not too hot or they will burn immediately. We will let them drain on absorbent paper and then they ready to serve at the table and enjoy them.

Split While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being. Though Kevin has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher, there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him - as well as everyone around him - as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
