Hurts One, Affects All: Preventing Sexual Assault is Everyone’s Duty The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in the United States. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. As is readily understood throughout the military, mission readiness defines a unit's ability to deCapt. William F. Mosk ploy quickly and efCOMNAVACTS, Spain ficiently. A sexual assault can reverberate throughout a unit and beyond, degrading readiness by harming the life of the victim, and the unit's ability to work effectively as a team. Despite reforms to our legal system, sexual violence remains pervasive and largely misunderstood. Nearly one in six American women will experience an attempted or completed rape at some point in her life, and for some groups,rates of sexual violence are even higher. Young women ages 16 to 24 are atgreatest risk. Statistically, that's the bulk of our Sailor workforce. Too many men and boys are also affected. Insidious in nature, with each new victim and each person still suffering from an attack, we are called with renewed purpose to respond to and rid our military of all forms of sexual violence. Each victim of sexual assault represents a sister or a daughter, a nephew or a friend. We must break the silence so no victim anguishes without resources or aid in their time of greatest need. We must continue to reinforce that our military will not tolerate sexual violence within our commands. Working together, we can reduce the incidence of sexual assault and heal lives that have already been devastated by this terrible crime. Here at NAVSTA, through the Fleet and Family Support Center, our Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program's objectives are to specifically enhance and improve: sexual assault prevention through training and education programs; treatment and support of sexual assault victims; and provide a system of accountability.
To report a Sexual Assault, call our Sexual Assault Response Coordinator, Janet Harris, at 727-3232 or a Victim Advocate at +34646-40-7871 BEFORE you speak with anyone else. Why? Well, there are two types of reporting options for a sexual assault, and depending on who you speak with about a sexual assault could limit your options. Not seeking advice from the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) or Victim Advocate (VA) first can minimize the control a victim has over the release of their personal information. However, regardless of how you report sexual assault, you will be offered a full range of advocacy, medical services and counseling. With unrestricted reporting, the assault must be reported to the command and to NCIS/law enforcement for investigation. Victims may also forfeit their rights to use restricted reporting by talking to someone other than those designated. Restricted reporting, on the other hand, gives a victim time and opportunity to get information and professional advice about their rights and available services, so they can make informed decisions. Often victims initially choose the restricted reporting option and later decide that they want the chain of command notified so that the offender can be held accountable. The victim can elect to change a restricted report to an unrestricted report,but an unrestricted report cannot be later changed to a restricted report. Finally, I'd like to end this column by mentioning that we need Victim Advocates. The VA is a trained volunteer who provides effective and appropriate support and guidance for victims of sexual assault. The purpose of Victim Advocacy is to provide victims of sexual assault with a volunteer advocate who can provide information and emotional support, and help guide them through the various medical, legal, and investigative processes with a goal of minimizing the "re-victimization" of sexual assault victims. I can't over-emphasize enough how critical this volunteer position is - if you have any questions about the program or would like to volunteer, please contact the FFSC as soon as possible. HASTA LUEGO ROTA!

Semana Santa (HOLY WEEK) Processions and Traditions During A Glorious Week By Manuel Alba The Semana Santa, or Holy Week, combined with the ferias, is one of the most important tourist attractions all over Andalucia. Semana Santa, especially in Sevilla is also one of the most memorable weeks one can have in Spain. The story and tradition of Semana Santa dates back many centuries. It is a tradition of the Catholic Church in Spain. Semana Santa, inspires reflection, regardless of your religious background. Sevilla, Granada, Malaga, Cadiz, Jerez, etc., host some of the most popular and glamorous celebrations. Throughout the last several years, I have witnessed and participated in the processions in Sevilla, a unique experience. I’m convinced that the Holy Week in Sevilla is different. It’s pure emotion. People in Sevilla live it in a different way. The smell of orange blossoms in the streets, the participation of its people and the splendor of its nearly 60 brotherhoods, makes Sevilla’s Holy Week, a must see in Andalucia, different, unique, unsurpassable. The Semana Santa in Sevilla consists of eight days of processions, the first one on being on Palm Sunday, April 17th and finishing seven days later, on Resurrection Sunday. Throughout these days, approximately 60 brotherhoods will take to the streets, from their respective parishes, churches or chapels. From there they will
proceed to the Cathedral, and back “home”. The shortest route takes approximately four hours, and the longest about 14 hours. As you can see, there is a plenty of time to see everything you want. Generally the first brotherhoods start their route about noon. My advice, get a map/holy week program of Sevilla and locate the main points and streets of the day, taking into consideration that all brotherhoods are obliged to take a common route on their way to the Cathedral. To see a “Cofradia” in the street, I recommend you to choose an open area to avoid being squashed. A “Cofradia” is comprised of one, two or three “pasos.” A paso is a processional platform on which an episode of the gospel is represented. The paso moves thanks to the “costaleros” (the men under the platform) that carry the weight on their shoulders. They move little by little following the orders of the “capataz.” Some have music, others a deep and respectful silence. All “cofradias” are accompanied by “nazarenos” wearing their tunics and capirotes or “penitents. “La cruz de Guia,” or guiding cross, leads each group of Brotherhoods. Most of the brotherhoods have two “pasos” (floats). The first one usually shows Jesus, alone, crucified, carrying the cross or together with the Apostles. The last “paso” of each Brotherhood is known as “paso palio” where one can
see the Virgen Maria under a palio (a canopy) supported by 12 varales (bars) and always with “candeleria,” used to hold the candles lighting the Virgen. The music with many of them makes it more exciting to see the brotherhoods in the streets. Music bands accompanies some, but not all the processions. Of course, I do no want to forget to mention that eating “tapas” and traditional holy week cakes (torrijas), is another of the traditions these days. The bars and restaurants are usually
full. Be patient, and you will always find a place. Semana Santa shows the Spanish culture, religion and tradition. If you get the chance to attend this event, please do it!

Japan Stop Movement Lifted for Navy's Military Personnel
From Chief of Naval Personnel Affairs
WASHINGTON (NNS) -Navy released NAVADMIN 123/11 April 8th announcing the movement of Navy military personnel to commands and activities in Japan is authorized, effective immediately. "America's Navy has been committed to supporting our longtime ally, as well as keeping the safety of our Sailors, civilians and families a top priority during this difficult time," explained Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson, chief of naval personnel. "We can now sustain the movement of our Sailors to units throughout Japan, but will continue to hold families from moving to certain areas until we can ensure they can be fully supported."
The stop movement order will remain in effect for all military dependents whose sponsors are under orders to report to commands or activities on Honshu Island, which includes bases in Atsugi, Misawa, Iwakuni and Yokosuka. For those family members with orders to areas outside Honshu, such as Sasebo and Okinawa, they may be authorized to accompany their Sailor with an updated dependent entry approval by the base Commanding Officer (CO). For dependents of service members with orders to the island of Honshu (e.g. Atsugi, Misawa, and Yokosuka), the impact of this stop movement on allowances will be highly dependent on their
individual circumstances. These families should read NAVADMIN 123/11 to learn what types of support they may be eligible for and should contact their local Personnel Support Detachment or Navy Personnel Command's Customer Service Center with questions based on their specific circumstances. Sailors, families and commands with questions may contact the NPC Customer Service Center at 1-866-U-ASK-NPC (1-866-827-5672). To read the updated stop movement message (NAVADMIN 123/11) and learn what support may be available to those families still affected, visit www. npc.navy.mil.
Troops to Receive Full Mid-month Pay on April 15th by Jim Garamone, American Forces Press

WASHINGTON (NNS) All service members will receive their full mid-month pay they have earned in their April 15th paychecks, Pentagon officials said April 11. "Basically, all active duty and reserve service members will receive full mid-month pay on the 15th of April," Pentagon spokesman Marine Col. Dave Lapan said. "It may be in two separate payments, but on the 15th everyone will receive their full allotted pay." Confusion arose about the April 15 payday due to the threatened closure of the U.S. government last week. Administration and congressional leaders came to an agreement that ended that action late on April 8. The Defense Finance and Accounting Service had posted "net pay advice" to some service members, telling them what to expect in their accounts.
OHA Survey for Spain Continues By NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs Office
All military members who reside in privately leased houses in Spain and receive an Overseas Housing Allowance now have the opportunity to complete the 2011 OHA and Recurring Maintenance Survey. The survey will be available through April 30 at the following internet address: http://www.defensetravel.dod.mil/ss/wsb.dll/s/ eg4e. “The Overseas Housing Allowance is a valuable entitlement for military members who are stationed in Spain,” said Lt. Ben Tisdale, NAVSTA public affairs officer. “The time and effort spent answering the survey questions will enable the Department of Defense to ensure we are getting the right amount of OHA. Therefore, we need everyone who qualifies for OHA to participate in this survey.” Participants will be asked to provide the average monthly cost of utilities and routine maintenance. No outside contractors or DoD civilians will be involved in the survey, and private homeowners do not need to take this survey, as historically their expense data is different from renters upon which the program is based. To complete the survey, respondents should have actual bills or records of their utility expenses and maintenance expenses for the last 12 months. They will be expected to compute a monthly average for each of these expenses. Respondents may take the survey at home with their spouses and should make every effort to reflect actual incurred expenses. The data will be used to compute scientifically accurate OHA allowances for military personnel in Spain, so accuracy in completing the survey is critical. “Remember to report the currency used to pay them,” said Tisdale. “For example, if electricity was paid in Euros, do not convert to dollars.” For more information regarding the survey, contact Maj. Manuel Marino, the point-of-contact for the Spain OHA survey at manuel. "Those net pay advice statements were made … before we knew there was an agreement to fund the government," Lapan said. "When those were posted they only showed partial payments, but again, everyone will receive their full pay on the 15th for the duty served and it may be in more than one deposit." Officials urge service members to check their end-of-month leave and earnings statements carefully. The normal end-of-month statements will be posted to accounts on April 22.
USS Monterey Visits Naples During Inaugural Missile Defense Deployment By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Edward Vasquez, Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/ Commander, U.S. 6th Fleet Public, Affairs
NAPLES, Italy (NNS) -- The Ticonderoga class guided-missile cruiser USS Monterey (CG 61) arrived in Naples, Italy, April 10, during a regularly scheduled port visit. During the port visit, Vice Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr., Commander, U.S. Sixth Fleet is scheduled to come aboard to speak with the crew. "This is an important port visit for us becauzse we will meet with Vice Adm. Harris and members of his staff," said Capt. James W. Kilby, Monterey commanding officer. "It is significant because many of the exercises and operations we will be conducting will help define the mission for following European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA) ships." Sailors from Monterey will also have the opportunity to visit Rome, tour the Colosseum, the Circus Maximums, and the Baths of Caracalla during guided tours.
"This is a good time to pull in, our Sailors will get to see Rome and it is just before Easter so Rome should be exciting," said Master Chief Keith Mahaffey, Monterey command master chief. "A lot of our Sailors have never visited Naples before, and I think that this will be one of our best liberty ports for our deployment." The Monterey is the first U.S. Ship to participate in the European Phased Adaptive Approach for missile defense architecture with NATO members' missile defense capabilities, as well as with the emerging NATO command and control network. Throughout her deployment, the Monterey will be touring NATO member states and demonstrating the ship's Ballistic Missile Defense capability. Monterey, homeported out of Norfolk, Va., is on a scheduled six-month deployment in the U.S. Sixth Fleet area of responsibility.

NMCB 74 – We Build, We Fight… We Entertain Photos and Story by MC1(SCW/SW/AW) Ryan Wilber
Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 74’s main body site at Camp Mitchell in Rota, Spain hosted “Rota Idol,” an American Idol-like singing competition. Enthusiasm for the event was generated in Spain due to the overwhelming success of “Afghanistan Idol,” the singing competition the battalion put on last year. According to NMCB 74 Executive Officer Lt. Cmdr. Tom Lyons, troops began to approach him with the request for a Rota Idol shortly after arriving in Spain. “You asked for Rota Idol. We’re giving it to you,” said Lyons as he addressed the troops during the show’s opening. “Deployments are difficult on the Seabees, and there isn’t a lot of down time where you can sit back and forget about the rigors of deployment. We work long hours on deployment, day in and day out. This was a great opportunity to get everyone together, have some fun, enjoy the talent, and share a few laughs. Based on the response from the Seabees, I think we accomplished just that,” said Lyons. Thirteen contestants performed for a crowd of more than 150 Seabees during the threehour event. Staying as true to American Idol as possible, the audience voted by ballot for their favorite performer. Utilitiesman 3rd Class Joshua Ledestich won over the audience with his original remake of Save Tonight by Eagle-Eye Cherry he called “Wear Hardhats” and was named “NMCB 74’s Rota Idol.” “For that night, everyone came together just to be together. I encourage this command to keep doing it annually. It’s the best Morale, Welfare and Recreation event, and command event that I will ever be a part of,” said Ledestich. “I felt like a rock star for like two seconds. It was pretty cool.” NMCB 74’s Navy Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) team took advantage of the large audience and used the opportunity to educate troops and raise money. A donation box was placed at the front of the barbecue line, where food was prepared by the battalion’s Second Class Petty Officers Association, and sold concessions during the show. The team raised nearly 600-dollars by night’s end. “We wanted to make a little bit of money and get the word out there about what the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society is about. This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart, and helping with these fundraisers is to give back for when they helped me,” said Builder First Class William Lathan, NMCB 74’s NMCRS assistant command coordinator. In the end, it takes Seabees from every company in the battalion working together to put on a first-rate show such as the one held at Camp Mitchell, which once again showcases the Seabee “Can-Do” spirit as they build, they fight or as in this case – entertain.

Above Par and Proud of it: Wounded Warrior Golf Tournament
Story By MC2 Brendan Morgan and Photos by MCC(SW/AW) Mikel Bookwalter
COMNAVACTS Capt. Bill Mosk tees off from the first hole of the inaugural Wounded EOD Warrior Golf Tournament, April 8th. The tournament raised approximately $10,000 for the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation which assists with travel and lodging of family members during medical treatment for wounded Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians.
With Master’s season in full swing, Naval Station Rota played host to a different kind of golf tournament April 8 with players not competing for a green jacket or trophy, but to raise money for wounded service members. Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 8, based here, sponsored the tournament, which raised money and awareness for explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) technicians injured in the line of duty. It’s just something that needed to be done. I’ve played in these tournaments back in the States,” said Master Chief Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician Brian Farris, the event’s coordinator. Thirty-six teams hit the links of the Capt. Jake Dennis Memorial Golf Course and raised approximately $5,000, but that only ended up being about half of the money raised in total. Frederik Aakerlund from the Forum Security Group, doubled the day’s fundraising efforts when he handed over a check for $5,000 at the end of the tournament. “We had no idea that he was going to make such a donation. He heard about the tournament, and one of our guys sponsored him to get on the base,” said Farris. “He stayed around all day, and at the awards ceremony he donated $5,000.” All the proceeds raised will be delivered back the the EOD Wounded Warrior Foundation Headquarters by Farris to be used to help family members of wounded EOD technicians, covering travel and lodging expenses through a grant program, so they can be together throughout the recovery and rehabilitation process. “I’m overwhelmed by the reception of it. It’s fantastic,” said Farris. The money raised benefits EOD members but the donors, attendees and volunteers came from all walks of the Rota community. Rota’s Chief Petty Officer Mess turned out, barbecuing and giving away hot food and cold drinks to players and spectators. “We’re Sailors. It’s not just an EOD event, it’s a Sailors’ event. So when the [Chief Petty Officer Mess] was asked, we said ‘we’re here for you, what do you need from us,” said Chief Master-at-Arms Kevin Oney. This is the tournament’s first year, but if community interest is high enough, Farris said EODMU 8 hopes it will be the first of many. “We’re about at a full field, and that’s great. We’re doing some stuff out here that people will remember and will want to be part of next year and that’s the goal, to make it an annual event,” said Farris.

TAXE DEADLINE MESSAGE Overseas personnel. Personnel assigned overseas, including Japan, receive an automatic two-month extension to 15 June 2011 to file and pay their 2010 income taxes. This extension is automatic for service members on an assigned tour outside the United States and Puerto Rico on 18 April 2011. Overseas personnel and dependents who return to the United States before 18 April 2011 on a temporary basis, including those who evacuated Japan, qualify for the automatic two-month extension because they are still considered to be assigned overseas (so long as they are not reassigned to the United States). As a reminder, this automatic two-month extension is for filing and paying only, so taxpayers who owe taxes (and will not have a refund from the IRS) will be charged interest on any unpaid amounts beginning 18 April. However, they will not be charged a late payment penalty or a late filing penalty. Please note that a majority of active duty personnel do not owe any taxes and will receive a refund from the IRS. Personnel who are married and file a joint return need only one spouse to qualify for both to use the extension. If filing separately, each spouse must separately qualify as living overseas to use the extension. To use this automatic extension if filing after 18 April, you must attach a statement to your return explaining which situation qualifies you for the extension. If you file at a military VITA center, the tax preparer can enter the overseas extension explanation on your electronic return.

In God's I m a g e You’ve perhaps heard the phrase that we were “made in God’s image.” This concept comes from the creation story in chapter 1 of the book of Genesis: “so God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” But what is Chaplain Steven Fisher most striking to me is exactly what the Bible describes as the image of God. You notice that it is not simply one person, or even numerous people – but specifically “male and female.” In short, when God wished to create “his image” on this world, he created a married couple. This is how significant marriage is – not simply a useful institution, but a direct reflection of the glory and love of our creator. This is why at least in part why marriage should be held in such high esteem and honored as the gift from God that it is. Moreover, as God is the source of all good and perfect things, it is he that made marriage as good as it can be. Thus I continue to encourage you to seek whatever opportunities are there to grow in your marriage – and to continue to discover just how joyous, tender, passionate, and full of delight God created this relationship to be. And so, I will mention one exciting upcoming opportunity. The chapel will be hosting a CREDO marriage retreat program on May 13 - 15. This is, of course, open to everyone, regardless of your religious background or whether or not you have a religious background. This is a wonderful opportunity for a weekend away with some time set aside for strengthening and enriching your marriage. Your room and meals will be covered at the wonderful Barceló resort hotel in Costa Ballena. Slots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please call the chapel to register. If you would like to speak with a chaplain for any reason please call the Religious Ministries Department at 727-2161.

April Is Sexual Assault Awareness Month By Fleet and Family Support Center
Every April, the Department of DEvery April, the Department of Defense (DoD) takes a concerted stand against sexual assault as it observes Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). This year’s theme for SAAM is “Hurt one. Affect all.” Throughout the month, tables will be set up in front of various buildings with volunteers passing out information regarding Sexual Assault Awareness. We also have free movie night every Monday at the base theater. We are will be having our “3rd Annual SAPR Walk” on April 21st, 1600, through Las Palmera’s housing on behalf of sexual assault victims. We encourage everyone to come and walk with us. Every individual must understand that we have a duty
to safely intervene and prevent the crime of sexual assault. This walk will demonstrate that we, as a military community, believe that sexual assault cannot be tolerated. Also, we have self defense class. This class will teach participants how to use awareness, intuition, boundaries, and leverage to unlock all the safety strategies they will ever need. Participants will practice their new skills, hands-on in a friendly, supportive, and comfortable environment If you wish to participant in any of the activities during this month, please call 727-3232 to speak to Janet Harris.

Sexual Assault Victim Advocate Training . The Victim Advocate’s role is fundamental to the success of the sexual assault support program. This should not just be a collateral duty or a bullet for an evaluation. Advocates need to have certain personality traits and characteristics such as empathy, good listening skills, respect for different people, discretion, commitment, ability to work within established guidelines, that will make them a good “fit” to the program. Advocates must have the time available to do the initial 30 hour training plus ongoing training (one hr/month), and the ability to carry the phone for a week at a time. Also, if they receive a call while carrying the phone, they need to have the time to meet the needs of the victim over the following weeks as necessary. The Sexual Assault Prevention Responce program is an important program that needs to be staffed with the right people. If you have someone in your department that would be interested in becoming a victim advocate, please have them contact Janet Harris, the Sexual Assault Victim Advocate Coordinator at 727-3232 or stop by
the FFSC. Anyone interested in your departments/commands, please encourage them to attend the training.
Janet Harris, NAVSTA Rota Sexual Assault Response Coordinator is an advocate for sexual assault victims and educates the community on sexual assault and how to prevent it.

YAFIT: Get Fit Now! El ultimo re-opens.
Yafit can more or less be translated as “Get Fit Now." The idea is to get fit through outdoor exercise programs. This is something that makes a lot of sense with the climate we have here. The business is owned and operated by Natalie and Joana. Both arrived in El Puerto in September of 2010 from very different backgrounds. Natalie came over with her partner from England and Joana with By Karen Lucas, Coastline Publisher her family from Madrid. Karen@coastline.e.telefonica.net They met as neighbors 607-56-4132 and soon became firm friends, realizing they had a lot in common. Joana, having recently had a baby, wanted to re-gain some of her fitness and Natalie wanted to learn to instruct classes in Spanish, thus the partnership began to form! Practicing Yoga and other types of exercise on Joana’s patio, Natalie started to learn the language necessary to work in the profession she loves and Joana started to become fit again. As the weeks turned into months the ideas of creating a business together began. Natalie worked for over 14 years in the fitness industry and ran a successful exercise studio in the north of England. Her passion for fitness and her ability to teach all different types of exercise works well alongside Joana’s skills. Joana previously worked as a Purchaser for Ikea throughout Portugal and Spain and hence has fantastic marketing, accounting and business skills. They both moved to El Puerto to experience life in a warm climate, by the sea so Outdoor exercise was the natural path to follow. Together they have created Yafit - Exercise Solutions, a fitness company offering a wide range of services which not only meets the demands of the public but brings modern, popular training methods from England. Outdoor Bootcamps guarantee fat loss and a
drop in clothes size in only 4 weeks, Outdoor Yoga and Pilates offer an English touch, especially the focus on Power Yoga (similar to Madonna’s Yoga Program). Natalie’s ability to create multi-level classes means all the sessions are suitable for all levels of fitness, from beginners to advanced and they all come with a beautiful view of the sea! Classes are held at El Ancla, Paseo Maritimo. Personal Training is delivered at the client’s home or with Natalie on her terrace. Natalie creates personalized workouts and nutrition advice for every client and can help with injuries, rehabilitation and lots more! To top it all, Yafit offers Thai Massage brought to the comfort of your home. A fantastic, full body massage experience taken fully clothed on a futon on the floor. They say its like doing a Yoga class without doing the Yoga!!! Joana and Natalie are both trained in Children’s Yoga and are hoping to expand the business to include these classes very soon. One fantastic bonus is that they offer 1 class free for all Outdoor sessions. All times and days are shown on their blog: HYPERLINK "http://www.yafitexercisesolutions.blogspot.com. or" www.yafitexercisesolutions.blogspot.com.or look for Yafit-Exercise Solutions on Facebook and Twitter. El Último officially reopens next Wednesday, April 20th!! It may open sooner, but the official date is the 20th. I know this will make many of you very happy since I have heard a lot of people lamenting the fact that they were closed. For those of you unfamiliar with El Último, it is a bar with Latin flavor located right outside the Fuentebravía/housing Gate. This week we are publishing a photo of the Restaurant La Marítima located in Valdelagrana. I was unable to get one when they ran their first ad last month. They have great food in a wonderful setting with reasonable prices. Remember that
during the off-season the restaurant only opens Friday, Saturday and Sunday for lunch and dinner. One bit of advice: call for reservations (956 560156) because they often fill up, especially on nice days when everyone wants to go out. Give it a try and enjoy! Tomorrow will be International Night at Molly Malone with typical dishes from several countries. Anything you want me to pass along? Let me hear from you about your favorite places or coming events. I do like hearing from you! Send me an e-mail to Karen@coastline.e.telefonica.net or give me a call at 607-564132. Support your paper by supporting the advertisers.
