#SAAM 2014 Highlights Prevention, Bystander Intervention Story and Photo by Morgan Over NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs


The 2014 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) theme is "Live our Values: Step Up to Stop Sexual Assaults," and Naval Station Rota proclaimed to step up and stop sexual assaults during a proclamation signing ceremony Friday. Following the proclamation signing, NAVSTA Rota Commanding Officer Capt. Greg Pekari also presented 20 certificates to new sexual assault and response prevention (SAPR) victim advocates (VA). "Our goal this year, as it is every year, is to empower individual commands and service members to take ownership of this problem," Pekari said. "When I say take ownership … this is your home. You want to take ownership while living here and you should take care of one another." The ceremony marked the beginning of SAAM, which is recognized Department of Defense (DoD)wide during the month of April. Aboard NAVSTA Rota, Sexual Assault and Response Coordinator Judy Nicholson highlighted the purpose of the month that involves education, support and intervention. "The biggest thing about this program is support, and whether it be in the form of victim advocates (VAs), or reaching out to the chaplains, or the counselors at Fleet and Family or receiving medical care … just giving the victim more access to resources to make sure they are able to get back into their normal routines and eventually recover from the incident," said Nicholson. According to the DoD, about 40 percent of sexual assaults against women and 23 percent and of sexual assaults against men involve alcohol and/or other

drugs. Also, the highest risk group for becoming a sexual assault victim is E-1 to E-4, ages 18 to 24. Assaults often occur over the weekends with alcohol as a contributing factor. This is why NAVSTA Rota and DoD continue to push bystander intervention. There are three components to active bystander intervention, according to the DoD Active Bystander Training Guide. They are referred to as the ABCs: "'Assess for safety.' Ensure that all parties are safe and assess if the situation requires calling authorities. When deciding to intervene, your personal safety should be the number one priority. When in doubt, call for help. "'Be with others.' If it is safe to intervene, you’re likely to have a greater influence on the parties involved when you work together with someone or several people. Your safety is increased when you stay with a group of friends that you know well. "'Care for your fellow Sailor (Service Member).' If it appears that someone’s attempts to fend off the unwanted sexual advances aren’t working, [DoD] wants you to feel responsible for the welfare of another human being, and offer to help - even if that person is not aware they need help. Focus on the inappropriate behavior that should be stopped. "Bystander intervention is not a new concept, it’s actually been around for a long time," Nicholson said.

"Whether it’s alerting the authorities - that’s doing something. Notifying a friend of the individuals involved - that’s doing something. If you realize that something is not right, step up and say something. There are many different ways people can intervene, and it’s not necessarily putting yourself directly in the mix, but if you can alert someone else or alert the authorities, those are different ways you can potentially prevent a sexual assault from happening." Prevention and intervention starts with every single person, whether they’re a trained VA or someone out with friends. "It’s about empowering the victim and giving them back something that was taken away from them through an awful situation," said Victim Advocate Brandi Naish. "Just making sure they have the choices to pursue an investigation, not pursue an investigation, seek medical, chaplain, whatever they want …it’s my job to make sure that they know and are aware of all those services." SAAM is an annual campaign designed to raise awareness and educate communities on the prevention of sexual violence. This annual event provides the opportunity to highlight the efforts that the DoD and military services are taking to combat the crime and promote prevention through special activities and public education.

Detailers Describe Detailing Process

From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn. - Sailors need to take charge of their own careers, educate themselves and understand that detailers are their advocates, Navy officials said March 19. "No one cares any more about your career than you do. Make yourself smart and knowledgeable on the latest NAVADMINS and any changes or updates to the MILPERSMAN," said Senior Chief Mass Communication Specialist Tom Jones, lead Mass Communication Specialist detailer. "You can find those on NPC's website. Be an informed consumer." Sailors communicate their desires to detailers through the Career Management System - Interactive Detailing (CMS-ID). CMS-ID is a web-based tool that enables enlisted Sailors to research and apply for jobs and communicate their career goals to career counselors and detailers. Sailors can log into CMS-ID at "Remember to communicate with your detailer and keep your information in CMSID up-to-date and current, including communicating your preferences - what are you looking to do and where are you looking to serve in your next assignment," said Jones. Detailers will always attempt to fill billets using a Sailor's desired selections first; however, fleet readiness requirements are the guiding factor in filling billets. The detailing process is constantly under review and enhancements are made when necessary. NAVADMIN 058/14 was recently released that affects the detailing process. See "DETAILING," page 4

DETAILING, continued from page 3

"Every Sailor is unique, and each circumstance is different," Jones said. "Detailers are the Sailors' advocate and we take in to consideration everything we can to ensure we are providing the right 'fit' for each billet advertised on CMS/ID. We evaluate each Sailor's professional milestones and take into consideration a Sailor's personal aspirations and stated preferences. There are a number of variables unique to each and every one of us in the Navy - from our personal situations: whether we're single, married, dual-military couple, single parent, same-sex spouse, exceptional family members, whatever - to our professional standing: does a Sailor have the proper qualifications for that particular job, or do they require training; is a Sailor a roller to sea duty or shore duty; will this be the best job for the Sailor and is this the best Sailor for the command, etc. For two equally qualified Sailors, we would give selection preference to the one that was ranked higher during the gaining command's review/comment phase." Detailers won't assign Sailors to advertised jobs until after the close of the CMS-ID application phase, during the detailer selection phase. Sailors may log into CMS-ID any time after the detailer selection phase to see if they have been selected for orders. "When a detailer has selected a Sailor for a billet, a notification is sent to that Sailor, through CMS/ID, to the email addresses provided in a Sailor's personal contact information profile. That's why it's so important that Sailors keep their CMS-ID profile updated with their current work and personal email addresses," Jones said. "This is when a Sailor is 'posted' to the billet. Once a Sailor has been selected, then posted to the billet, the order writing process begins, ultimately ending in the Sailor receiving a set of orders."

Keep Your Heart Healthy High blood pressure is a blood pressure reading of 140/90 or higher. Both of these numbers are important. Nearly one-in-three American adults has high blood pressure. Once it develops, it usually lasts a lifetime, but it can be treated and controlled. High blood pressure is known as the “silent killer� because it usually has no symptoms, and people don’t find out about it until they have to get treated for something else. Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. So each time the heart beats it pumps out blood into the arteries. Blood pressure is at its highest when the heart pumps the blood. This is known as your systolic pressure. When the heart is between beats your blood pressure falls and this is known as your diastolic pressure. Blood pressure is considered normal when

lower than 120/80. About 65 million American adults have high blood pressure. Many people develop high blood pressure as they get older, but this is not a part of healthy aging. You can help keep your blood pressure normal by maintaining a healthy diet, quitting tobacco use and getting more exercise. If you are prescribed medications, take them as directed. If you have any concerns about your blood pressure make an appointment with your primary care manager. Control your blood pressure and stay Healthy for Life!

'Fair Winds and Following Seas' MACS (SCW/SW) Tony Guyette

Story and Photos by MCC (SW/AW) Mikel Bookwalter NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs

For 25 years Senior Chief Master-at-Arms Tony Guyette served his country with honor, courage and commitment. On Tuesday, Guyette held his retirement ceremony aboard Naval Station Rota, where he joined family, colleagues and friends in commemorating the time he has served and the sacrifices he made for his country. Guest speaker Chief Master-at-Arms Barion Hayward, a former leading petty officer of Guyette’s, spoke of the impact Guyette’s leadership had upon himself and upon the Sailors he’s led and mentored. Hayward also played a video compilation of well-wishes from former Sailors whom served with Guyette during his 25 year career. It was somewhat difficult to tell when Guyette was acting as the master of ceremony or making his personal remarks; he emceed his own ceremony which was one of many rare, if not unique, elements of the ceremony, but he offered one leader-

ship pearl. “Act like and adult an you’ll get treated like an adult. Act like a child and you’ll get sent home to mamma,” said Guyette. Guyette’s assignments include: USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20) 1989-1990 Naval Facility Argentia, Newfoundland 1990-1993 Naval Station Charleston, S.C. 1993-1996 Naval Support Activity Gaeta, Italy 1996-1999 Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 4 1999-2001 Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga. 2001-2004 Naval Air Station Sigonella, Sicily 2004-2006 Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla. 2006-2008 Joint Task Force 134, CENTCOM 2008-2009 Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla. 2009-2011 Commander Fleet Activities Chinhae, Korea 2011-2012 Commander Navy Region Korea, Seoul Korea 2012-2012 Naval Station Rota, Spain 2012-2014 Fair winds and following seas, shipmate!

What Will the ‘Black Box’ Reveal?

What happened to Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370? The disappearance of the aircraft is a true mystery since nobody seems to know what happened. It is a sad situation, especially for the families of the passengers. As I write this, they have located some debris floating in the water but it has not been confirmed if even that debris is from the plane. The disappearance of the plane is so odd because nobody knows Chaplain Patrick Riley what happened, why it happened or who did what on the plane. The usual explanations don't seem to fit the facts of what is known. Combine that with the confusing and often contradictory information coming out of official sources and the whole event is just weird. Theories abound - hijacking, mechanical failures, crazy pilots, terrorists and more - but all of those explanations have some parts that are not consistent with what we do know about it. Of course, that doesn't stop people, especially the news networks, from speculating, guessing or even making things


up about the flight. "Experts" throw out pet theories with explanations of what could have, might have and maybe might be related to something. They have no clue. CNN even had commentators talking alien abduction and wormholes! It is truly amazing what people will come up with to explain what they don't know. We don't like to not know things! As I watched the coverage it reminded me of how we treat the mystery of God. What do we know about God? How do we know about God? We really do not know - nor can we know - all the things of God because He is unfathomable. We can figure out some things about God from nature - He has power, He's creative, smart, maybe even good (since He made things like chocolate) or maybe bad (there are a lot of horrible things). Beyond that, there is a lot of mystery. He is beyond us in ways we don't know, but we do not like to not know things. So we guess and postulate and speculate and make things up about God based on thin air. We call in "experts" that have their pet theories and interpretations. We use hunches and feelings or "spiritual" experiences to explain God who then turns out to be pretty much in our image. Maybe He is an alien? Maybe He is close, maybe He is far away, maybe He is this way and maybe He is that way. The way they are going to get answers about flight

MH 370 is to find the plane - the black box or the wreckage - and see what it reveals. I suggest ignoring the other info until it is proved. Even then we may not know for sure. Life is full of mysteries. The same advice applies to knowing God. The only way to get answers about God is to find out what He reveals about Himself. Even then you will not understand everything. He is so far beyond us that we don't even know what we don't know, and if we knew it we couldn't comprehend it! Still I would encourage you to get into Scriptures (the Spiritual Black Box) and find out what He reveals about Himself. There are some parts of Scripture that are simple and direct. There are other parts that are confusing and too much for my pea brain to grasp. Hold on to the clear parts, learn them, apply them and live them. As for the unclear parts, accept the things He does reveal - even if it is beyond us. Breaking news (literally, on TV)! There is more stuff floating in the Indian Ocean - and they still don’t know if it belongs to flight MH 370. Breaking news! God is a mystery - check out His black box and find out about Him. If you would like to speak to me or another chaplain regarding this discussion or any other issue, please call the Religious Ministries Department at 727-2161.

What is sexual assault?

DOD SAPRO Major Gen. Jeffrey Snow

SAPRO is the Department of Defense's single point of accountability and oversight for sexual assault policy matters and develops policy and programs that address the Department's sexual assault prevention, advocacy / victim assistance and assessment efforts.

Intentional sexual contact characterized by the use of force, threats, intimidation or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent. The term includes a broad category of sexual offenses including specific Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) offenses: rape, sexual assault, aggravated sexual contact, abusive sexual contact, forcible sodomy or attempts to commit these offenses.

What is consent?

Consent means words or overt acts indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual conduct at issue by a competent person. An expression of lack of consent through words or conduct means there is no consent. Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission resulting from the accused’s use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent. A current or previous dating relationship by itself or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the sexual conduct at issue shall not constitute consent. There is no consent where the person is sleeping or incapacitated such as due to age, alcohol or drugs or mental incapacity.

What is Military Rule of Evidence (MRE) 514?

DON SAPRO Jill Loftus

The Secretary of the Navy’s principal point of accountability for all sexual assault policy matters and a primary resource for expert Sexual Assault Prevention Response (SAPR) assessment, program support and oversight.

What a sexual assault victim and a victim advocate discusses pertaining to supportive services and the assault remains strictly confidential; however, if the victim discloses the intent to commit a future crime, that will be reported. Violating this confidentiality is a violation of the UCMJ. If you have any questions about this, contact the legal office. Source: Manual for Courts Martial (MCM)

What Are My Reporting Options? What is a Restricted Report?

BLUF: Receive supportive services without starting an investigation. Restricted reporting allows a sexual assault victim to confidentially disclose the details of his or her assault to specified individuals and receive medical treatment and counseling, without triggering the official investigative process. Service members and their adult dependents who are sexually assaulted and desire restricted reporting under this policy may only report the assault to the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), victim advocates, health care providers and chaplains. Benefits of Restricted Reporting: - Victim receives appropriate medical treatment, advocacy and counseling. - Victim has time to consider options and to begin the healing process. - Victim can seek relevant information and support, and make more informed decisions about participating in a criminal investigation. - Victim controls the release and management of his/her personal information. - Victim decides whether and when to move forward with initiating an investigation. - Victim can later elect for the unrestricted reporting option. Limitations of Restricted Reporting: - Perpetrator remains unpunished and at large. - Victim cannot receive a military protective order (MPO) or an expedited transfer. - Perpetrator may continue to have contact with the victim. - Evidence may be lost.

Limitations of Unrestricted Reporting: - Victim cannot change to Restricted Reporting. - Victim may consider investigation or legal process too intrusive. - Assault will be known and discussed amongst those with a need to know. - Investigation and court proceedings may be lengthy (approximately 6-18 months). - Offender(s) may not be convicted.
