725th AMS Reaches 1,000 Days DUI Free By Tech Sgt. Jason Willis 725th AMS

The 725th Air Mobility Squadron (AMS) assigned to Naval Station Rota reached a milestone Wednesday: 1,000 days without a DUI. “With a squadron of approximately 220 personnel, including active duty and civilian members, reaching 1,000 days without a DUI requires the active participation of every member of the squadron,” said Lt Col Chris Cunniff, 725th AMS commander. “It means people are planning ahead, making good decisions when they head out and looking out for their wingman.” The real impact of this achievement is not the number 1,000 itself, but what the number signifies. It is the fact, that for more than 2 1/2 years no ones life has been lost or shattered by the actions of a drunk driver. As with all success stories the 725 AMS did not reach this goal on its own. Naval Station Rota and its organizations played a critical role as well. Organizations such as Morale, Welfare and Recreation, Fleet and Family Support Center and the Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) offer recreational alternatives to drinking. The Rota Chief Petty Officers Association (CPOA) is another organization that has played a significant role in combating drunk driving. “Tipsy Taxi is operated for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for 26 years stateside and the last two years within NAVSTA Rota, Spain,” said Chief Master-at-Arms Lawrence Watson, manager of the Arrive Alive Program. “Here in Rota, Spain our fundamental philosophy for the partner-

ship between CPOA and the community has been to encourage every Airman and Sailor to make correct choices. Implementation of the program is so simple that any Airmen/Sailor whose judgment is impaired by alcohol will make the right choice to take a free ride home instead of driving while impaired.“ “It’s important that our Airmen have an anonymous alternate avenue to take, such as Tipsy Taxi, besides getting behind the wheel of their car; especially when they’ve found themselves in a situation where they may not have enough money in their pocket at the moment to pay for a cab,” said the 725th Squadron First Sergeant, Master Sgt. Linda McGinnis-

Weber. “It’s an easy decision at that point, pull out the cab card for a ride home without any worries, and they can settle the debt later through the program manager.” Remaining DUI free for 1,000 days wasn’t a goal for the 725th, it’s a lifestyle. One key component for the 725th in remaining DUI free is the culture of zero tolerance for drunk driving embraced by all members of the squadron from the Airmen to the commander. This accomplishment has shown a degree of responsibility by the members of the 725 AMS and they hope it encourages and inspires a culture of responsible drinking and making good choices at the individual, unit and command levels.

There are many ways to prevent DUIs, but the members of the 725th would like to pass along the following tips that they’ve used to ensure success in preventing DUIs: - Don't drink and drive! Call a taxi, a friend, a co-worker or a supervisor. - Have a plan before you start drinking! Making choices when you’ve already been drinking usually doesn’t turn out well. - Don’t go out alone! Have a wingman and make sure the wingman’s plan is to not drink alcohol. Enjoy social events and nights out, but remember to do it safely and do it without drinking and driving.

New Pickup, Drop-off Zone for DGF 2013 - 2014 School Year By MC2 (SW/AW) Travis Alston NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs


David Glasgow Farragut schools aboard Naval Station Rota, Spain have implemented a change to the pickup and drop-off locations in preparation for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year. On both Malaga and Logrono Streets, parents will notice yellow striping along the length of the sidewalk; these lanes are now designated solely for busing. Parents should no longer drop off or pick up children along these two streets according to Transportation Operations Specialist for Rota and Seville Schools, Ephraim Wertz.

The designated parent pickup and drop-off area is in the kindergarten parking lot on Granada Street. There is blue striping along the sidewalk for parents to let children out or pick them up. “In the past we've had many of our parents drop off [their children] near the playground entrance at the bottom of Malaga, though signs are posted to discourage the practice,” said Wertz. “When parents stop there it prevents school buses from entering the bus lane and presents a hazard. We ask that parents respect the signage and only drop students off at the designated area in the kindergarten parking lot or in the dirt park-

ing lot along Alicante Lane, if they prefer to be near the playground.” Though parking is discouraged in the blue lane, parents are welcome to use any available spaces in the parking lot, which is unchanged from prior school years. As an alternative, parents can park in the dirt parking lot along Alicante Lane to walk or send their children across the street. “The school has requested security support to supervise the major crosswalks around the school as they have in prior school years, so children will have

Hagel Announces New Anti-sexual Assault Initiatives By Jim Garamone

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON - Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Aug. 15 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 Aug. 15 strengthen 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 a 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. - He also directed the DoD Inspector General to regularly evaluate closed sexual assault investigations. - Hagel ordered the service secretaries to standardize prohibitions on inappropriate behavior between 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 CourtsMartial 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.

Contract Position Available U.S. Naval Hospital Rota, Spain is seeking one contracted full time dental assistant for the Dental Clinic.

Rota Hosts Successful 1st Big Latch On, Breast-feeding Tips By Heather Snyder Rota EDIS

Rota held its 1st Big Latch On Aug. 2 at Rio Salado Park aboard Naval Station Rota promoting breast-feeding. Hosted by Educational and Developmental Intervention Services (EDIS), Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS), U.S. Naval Hospital Rota and Women Infants and Children (WIC), mothers joined together to help break the world record for mothers simultaneously breastfeeding. The final count was 14,536 mothers world-wide who participated in the event. Rota mothers participate in the event which included snacks, door prizes and yoga with their babies. Top Reasons to Breast-feed 1. It’s good for baby. Breast-fed babies have lower rates of childhood obesity, Type 1 and 2 diabetes, leukemia, infectious morbidity, otitis media, lower respiratory infections, flus, colds, gastroenteritis and diarrhea, pneumonia and sudden infant death syndrome. 2. It’s good for mother. Mothers who breast-feed have lower rates of premenopausal breast cancer, ovarian cancer, osteoporosis, retained gestational weight gain, Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and the metabolic syndrome. 3. It’s good for the U.S. Study findings, published in Obstetrics & Gynecology, estimate that suboptimal breast-feeding currently results in $859 million in health care costs and more than $17.4 billion in societal costs from maternal deaths before the age of 70. 4. You’ll save lots of money. Formula supplies for just six months can cost upward of $1,000. 5. It’s better for the environment. There is less trash and plastic waste compared to that produced by formula cans and bottle supplies. Dairy cows, which are raised in part to make infant formula, are a significant contributor to global warming by adding enormous amounts of methane, a harmful greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere. 6. The recovery rate is faster from pregnancy and childbirth. Oxytocin, a hormone produced during nursing, helps the uterus contract, reducing post-delivery blood loss and helps the uterus return to its normal size

more quickly. 7. Breast milk is easier to digest. For most babies, breast milk is easier to digest than formula so nursing babies have lower rates of constipation, reflux and allergies. The proteins in formula are made from cow’s milk and babies’ stomachs have to adjust to digesting them. 8. Breast milk changes as your baby grows. Breast milk changes to meet your baby’s needs. 9. Your child will have better teeth. Infants who are breast-fed longer have fewer dental cavities throughout their lives. The longer you breast-feed, the lower the likelihood your baby will have a misalignment of the teeth requiring braces. 10. Your baby will be better protected from the side effects of vaccinations. Research shows that breast-fed babies have a better antibody response to vaccines than formula-fed babies. 11. Your baby might be smarter. A recent study from Brown University found that babies who were breast-fed exclusively for at least the first three months had better development in parts of the brain linked to language and cognition. Another study suggests breast-feeding increases your baby’s IQ by about seven points. 12. Your child will be better adjusted. Significant evidence suggests that breast-fed children develop fewer psychological, behavioral and learning problems as they grow older. One researcher found that breast-fed children were, on average, more mature, assertive and secure with themselves as they developed. 13. Breast-feeding improves your child’s chance of climbing the social ladder and becoming a successful adult. A recent study published in the Archives of Disease in Childhood found breast-feeding enhances brain development, which boosts intellect, which in turn increases upward social mobility. Top Ten Tips to Successful Breast-feeding 1. Take a breast-feeding class before your baby is born. 2. Get help before you leave the hospital. Specialists in the hospital can help with proper latch on and positioning.

3. Practice skin-to-skin and breast-feed right after birth. Research shows that skin-to-skin contact helps relax both mom and baby, stimulates feeding behaviors, and triggers the release of certain hormones that spur breast-feeding. Also, newborns that have early contact with their mothers learn to latch on more efficiently than babies who are separated from their mothers in the hour or two following birth. 4. Have a plan to assist with discomfort. Ice packs can relieve engorged breasts while lanolin may soothe sore nipples. Warm compresses can help with clogged milk ducts. 5. Take care of yourself. Eat well-balanced meals, drink plenty of water, rest when baby is sleeping and continue to take prenatal vitamins and DHA supplements. 6. Read your baby’s cues. Watch for baby’s early signs of wanting to feed, such as rooting, licking lips or putting hands to mouth, rather than watching the clock. 7. If returning to work, begin pumping at least four weeks before returning to work to build up a supply of frozen milk. 8. If returning to work, invest in a good pump, a hands-free device and bring a photo of your baby to work. Pump both sides at the same time for each missed feeding. 9. Hold off on the pacifier. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends waiting to introduce a pacifier until breast-feeding is well established, usually three to four weeks after birth. Avoiding pacifiers shortly after birth can help protect your milk supply as well as promote healthy weight gain for your baby. 10. Know when to call for help. Be familiar with the signs of mastitis and thrush. Mastitis requires a round of antibiotics and thrush requires an antifungal medication.

Importance of Exercise Health Promotions Department U.S. Naval Hospital Rota, Spain

Exercise may be the last thing on your mind when you are feeling anxious or depressed, but once motivation sets in it can make a significant difference. According to the Mayo Clinic, research done on anxiety, depression and exercise shows that the psychological and physical benefits of exercise helps in reducing anxiety and improving mood. The link between anxiety, depression and exercise is not clear, but working out can help you relax and make you feel better. Exercise can even keep depression and anxiety from returning once you do feel better. Exercise helps ease depression by aiding in the release of endorphins (a feel good brain chemical) and reducing immune system chemicals that worsen depression. Exercise even has psychological and emotional benefits that boost your self-confidence.

It can distract you from negative thoughts that would feed anxiety and depression. It can help you get more social interaction by just exchanging a greeting or a smile around the neighborhood. It will help you cope in a healthy way by doing something positive. Exercise includes an extensive assortment of activities that raise your activity level to boost your mood. Anything that will get you off the couch and out of the house will enhance your disposition throughout the day. Exercise alone does not eliminate depression and anxiety, but is part of a regimen recommended by your healthcare team. Find some ways to fit exercise in to your daily routine and get Healthy for Life.

Combined Effects Make Erosion Project A Success By MC2 Derric Cushman NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs

At a time of budget constraints and sequestration, Team Rota has developed a creative way to save money while meeting the needs of the base by using recycled materials to address erosion near pier three. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Europe, Africa, Southwest Asia (EURAFSWA) in conjunction with Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 4 and the Spanish Navy worked together to complete a project designed to lessen erosion of the fuel farm area located next to pier three aboard Naval Station Rota, Spain. Concrete blocks from a previous project aboard the base were used to build a break wall, which would diminish the effects of erosion caused by seawater and heavy rains. The original idea was to have Seabees transport the blocks and dispose of them at a facility out in town, but upon further review, public works leadership decided that the material could be utilized for ero-

sion mitigation. “The main benefit of the project, is the use of the blocks, soil and riprap white boulders for the purpose of slowing the erosion and building up the area behind the pier three fuel farm,” said NAVSTA Rota Public Works and Seabee Operations Chief, Chief Builder Ricky Jones. “This area was continuing to deteriorate every year during the rainy season. The trees were dying out and falling down due to the lack of soil for the roots to take hold of. The blocks are stacked to control the water flow to the area. The grading and use of soil and the boulders shored up and stabilized the area affected the most due to the erosion. There was a chance that the ground would continue to erode and the fuel pipes become exposed.” In total, 223 blocks, weighing 700 tons, were removed from various locations around the base to build the break wall. Through their efforts, the command was able to save money and manpower, said Jones. “In these days of sequestration, we all know that funding is tight,” said

Concrete blocks are strategically placed at the fuel farm near pier three as part of a short erosion project completed aboard Naval Station Rota, Spain. The blocks were part of the former green line, and will reduce erosion of the shore near the fuel farm. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communications Specialist 2nd Class Derric Cushman)

Jones. “The Seabees had the capability to accomplish this mission, and their senior leadership, specifically their operations department, were committed to providing this support for the base.

With their support, we did not have to pay for disposal of the blocks, equipment, labor or fuel to accomplish this.” Jones attributed the project’s success to teamwork between the units.

Chuck Norris Versus Chaplain Miller: ‘I’ll Bless You in the Face!’

It’s been said that under the beard of Chuck Norris, you’ll find another fist. I wanted to see if that was true for me too, so I jumped off my bike and punched my patio tile with my chin. It didn’t work. I ended up with five stitches. Saying that I jumped off my bike to punch the patio tile with my chin sounds a lot tougher than what actually happened. It sounds like something you’d hear from a cartoon action hero advertisement. You know, Chaplain Timothy Miller the kind that says, “He jumps over buildings running backward, breaks through bricks with his shins to save kittens and crushes patio tiles with his chin just because he can.” What really happened is that I stopped on my bike


and didn’t unclip my foot out of my pedal, and I simply fell over. I caught the patio tile with my chin just the wrong way. Not a very tough story. When I was assigned to the infantry with the Marines, we were joking one night in the field about how to make a chaplain sound tough. Many times a chaplain’s words are caring, understanding and encouraging, but these kinds of words don’t sound very tough. If you’re in a fight with someone, you don’t usually say, “Great punch! Keep it up!” Yet somehow I think we managed to do it. We came up with a tough chaplain phrase and quickly put it into practice. I’d walk past one of the company commanders and say, “Hey, watch your step around me.” And he’d say, “Why, what are you going to do?” To which I’d reply (in my toughest sounding voice), “If you’re not careful - (dramatic pause) - I’ll bless you in the face!” Which brings me back to Chuck Norris.

ness of our bodies has limits (as I experienced with my chin). Spiritual toughness, however, is what really impresses me. Scripture tells us that God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but of power, love and selfdiscipline. I’ve been privileged to see people apply this to their Chuck Norris-sized problems and come out the victor. One can usually recover from a punch to the face, but a blessing to the face, well, that’s something that can change a life forever. So think about how you can bless someone in the face this week. Or, maybe more importantly, think about how you can allow someone to bless you in the face this week. Maybe it’s time to talk to someone about the Chuck Norris-sized problem you're facing. It might change your life forever. Sorry Chuck Norris, you lose. If you would like to speak to me or another chaplain regarding this or any other issue, please contact the chapel at 727-2161.

Olympic Swimmer Trains With Rota, Morón Swimmers By Steve Bond, Ryan West and Nathaniel Truemper Contributing writers

Olympic Swimmer Kate Ziegler joined the Rota Swim Club (RSC) to train and offer advice during the annual summer swim clinic held aboard Morón Air Base, Aug. 11 - 17. Organized by RSC Head Coach Ryan West, more than 40 swimmers within the European Forces Swim League had the chance to train alongside U.S. Olympic swimmer and U.S. 1,500-meter freestyle record holder Kate Ziegler. “We are accustomed to hosting aircraft

and aircrews from around the world to utilize our airfield and facilities,” said Morón Air Base Commanding Officer Lt. Col. Daniel Furleigh. “This past week was a first for Moron Air Base as 40 swimmers from all across Europe descended upon our tiny installation to utilize our support facilities to run a youth swim clinic. Judging from the smiles across the children's faces all week, Morón Air Base served as an excellent venue to host the European Forces Swim League's annual summer swim camp.” The swimmers’ program included a rigorous training program both in and out of the water, as well as lots of fun activities, and input from Ziegler. “This year we added an ‘out of the pool’ curriculum for our swimmers,” said West. “We wanted to introduce them to different training methods that they can do out of the pool.” “It’s about working with kids who have a passion for swimming and sharing my experiences in swimming, and the lessons I’ve learned and tips I’ve picked up traveling around the world … and growing up as a little swimmer and progressing through the sport,” said Ziegler. “I just wanted to share my knowledge, my experiences, my love for the sport with some awesome kids!” Ziegler, visiting Morón Air Base for the first time, was also given a full tour of the

base, including the flight line, where she was given a detailed tour of several aircraft and a history of the role of Morón Air Base. “I believe this was a great week of swimming for our kids,” said West. “They were able to learn from a champion, meet and get to know the other swimmers in the league and test their mettle each day. As coaches we wanted to challenge them daily, and each day they met the challenge head-on and elevated their game. If they continue to practice the lessons they learned this past week, I believe this will be a record-breaking year.”

Ziegler agreed with West’s comments; “I just want to say that this is the best camp I’ve ever been to. This has been a wonderful experience. I hope the kids got as much out of it as I did! It was truly a pleasure and honor for me to be here, and I hope to do more camps like this in the future.” “The swim clinic was a total success due in large part to the outstanding efforts of the coaches and chaperones,” said Furleigh. “A number of Airmen and Marines were also key to ensuring the week-long camp went off without a hitch.”

Utilitiesman Constructionman Daniella Acevedo, Naval Station Rota Public Works Department, uses a surveyor’s level during a construction project at the Navy Exchange (NEX) aboard Naval Station Rota, Aug. 15. Seabees assigned to Naval Station Rota’s Public Works Department and Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 11 teamed up to construct a concrete sidewalk and steps that will be used at the hillside behind the NEX. The project will ensure that employees have easy access to the rear entrance of the NEX and are able to safely walk down the hill without worry of slipping or falling due to bad weather conditions and mud. The project also provides opportunities for training to the Sailors who are working on the project. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Derric Cushman)
