ICR, National Night Out, & Chief Season
Hola TEAM ROTA! One of my favorite things about this job is that I get to speak to new Sailors, Airmen, Marines and their families at ICR. During the summer PCS season, I get to speak to an ICR class every week. For me, it is a great way to see all the new faces in our community. Every single person in ICR has a different story. That is what is so interesting to me. Command Master Chief Many are coming to Gary Rosenbaum Rota as a first duty station in the military. Some are just out of high school and out of boot camp. These folks are going to have a difficult time adjusting to military life at their next command, especially if it is a ship! Rota is so enjoyable. I don't think there are many duty stations that would be able to compete. Repeat offenders, or people who have been stationed in Rota before are always very happy and excited to be returning. They are the ones who are smiling the most in ICR class. Repeat offenders usually tell about how they have been waiting
and trying to get back here. I am glad they were able to make it. To summarize, I love ICR. It goes above and beyond to prepare our service members and their families for the incredible experience the government has afforded us. If you haven't attended, REGISTER TODAY! And for those with children who have been unable attend ICR due to limited childcare availability, FFSC Rota is offering a special one-day course on Friday, August 10. The course will fulfill the command requirement to attend and offer a chance to obtain your Spanish driver's license. Sign up through FFSC by calling 727-3232. The 35th annual National Night Out is coming up soon. For us in Rota, National Night Out is an opportunity to meet with our community law enforcement officers, fire fighters and emergency management professionals from Spain and the U.S. The event is designed to get out and make real connections with the people that we rely on for our day-to-day safety and security. It really is so important in today's fast-paced digital environment. Please come out on August 7th and enjoy oldfashioned face to face interaction and conversation. It truly is the essence of TEAM ROTA. Finally, this is the season for training the newest chief petty officers. It is truly a combined base effort, as all commands come together for the same goal of preparing young men and women for greater responsibility and accountability. You will see many chiefs out and about base for the next six weeks. Don't be shy, if you have any questions about the training process, please feel free to ask. Take Care Team Rota. I look forward to seeing you in our community!

Col. Henry Triplett relieved Col. Eric Hook as commander of the 521st Air Mobility Operations Group (AMOG) during a change of command ceremony held aboard Naval Station Rota, Spain July 19. The change of command ceremony is rooted in military history dating back to the 18th century. Unique organizational flags were designed for each command as recognizable symbol for the unit. ceremony, that providing public confirmation of the change of authority. That symbolic tradition survives today. “Developing airmen and ensuring precise mission execution in the 521st Air Mobility Operations Group requires a special touch as the command has to empower airmen in 13 geographically separated units in nine different countries spread across 5,000 plus miles,” said Col. Bradley Spear, commander, 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing and presiding officer. “Eric [Hook], you have led this group well. It has been my pleasure to watch what you have done to mentor and ultimately empower your squadron commander, ensuring that the chief of staff of the Air Force’s priority of making the squadron the heartbeat of the Air Force became a reality in this group.” Hook took to the podium to address his troops a final time as 521st AMOG commander before receiving a Legion of Merit and turning over his responsibilities to Triplett. “It sounds so cliché but everything that was in that

These airmen all have great stories. We’ve accomplished some pretty cool things over the last two years but the thing I’m most proud of is the fact that we didn’t lose any teammates along the way. We had some bumps and bruises here and there but we ended with the same number of airmen we started with. That’s a testament Col. Henry Triplett speaks to the audience after taking over as commander of the 521st Air to our resilient airmen and the Mobility Operations Group (AMOG). robust safety culture within this fully recognize that the mission does not get done without group.” After passing the flag from one commander to the its most important resource: its people, to include your next, Triplett received his first salute as the new 521st families at home who support you.

PUBLISHER´S CORNER Miguel’s Caribbean Cuisine
The exotic, distinct flavors and ingredients of Jamaican Caribbean cooking --in a fun reggae atmosphere have come to Rota!
In the historic downtown area of El Puerto de Santa Maria is a hidden gem, a new pastry shop that reminds me more than a little of a Viennese coffee shop near the Vienna opera. In a comfy old world style atmosphere they offer ecological coffee from Columbia and French and Viennese pastries that will beguile even the most sophisticated of palates.
Newly opened, Miguel’s Caribbean Cuisine restaurant (also known as MCC), is very different and a refreshing change to the local culinary offer. It is the first and only Caribbean restaurant in the Costa de la Luz area. The owner and main chef is Michael Hutchinson. He was born in London of Jamaican parents. Leaving his IT job in London, he has relocated permanently to Rota, a place he reports that he has come to love and call home. Michael has dedicated himself to bringing to the local area authentic Caribbean cooking. He uses locally sourced fresh produce and meats seasoned and cooked in the Jamaican style. Service here is quick and efficient with all food cooked fresh daily. The restaurant is near the beach downtown and welcomes warmly the local naval community. MCC has on offer an extensive list of Cocktails & other drinks made by their experienced barmen. MCC offers a sit down service and or takeaway service. A delivery service will be available from October - April.
Persian tea is made using ancestral techniques, steeped in the Samovar, with temperatures and unique mixes of teas and spices skillfully combined to provide an aromatic black tea with cardamom tones-- bringing you back in time to the taste and feeling of a millenary mysterious and hedonistic oriental ceremony. High Tea should not be missed so make your reservation and bring your friends for a fun and different tête-à-tête in the cozy Cafe Opera. Please see their ad further in the paper for details.

Rota Child and Youth Programs: Frequently Asked Questions As summer comes to a close, newcomers and regulars begin to focus on getting back into the swing of the school year routine! The friendly staff at Rota’s Child and Youth Programs compiled a list of commonly asked questions regarding the program. If you have additional questions, feel free to reach out to them by stopping by the facility or giving them a call. Q: Can I pay online for full time or part time care of my child? A: Yes, you can pay for care, youth programs trips and socials, Youth Sports and day camp online. First, you must have a complete and up-to-date registration form on file at our CDC or Youth Program and then go to https:// myffr.navyaims.com/europecyms.html. Once you are on the website, first time users must retrieve your user name and password. You will be emailed your user name and then you can finalize your account information. From that point, you can sign up and pay online. Q: Do I need to go into the CDC to sign my child up for hourly care? A: No, you can sign up online for hourly care. You must first have a complete and up-to-date registration form on file at our CDC or Youth Program. Then you sign up on https://myffr.navyaims.com/europecyms.html. Once you have an account, you can view, sign up and pay for hourly care. The best part is that you don’t have to wait in line! As always if you have an issues or want to talk to the staff, you can sign up for hourly care and pay at the front desk as well.
Q: Why does it take so long to hire new employees? A: As a National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accredited program, we strive to hire and train the best candidates to provide the quality service to your family. There is a process of onboarding new candidates that requires extensive background checks, professional reference checks, a health screening, and a drug test to ensure eligibility for employment. After a candidate has been cleared to begin work, they must begin the rigorous training program requiring a two week intensive orientation, trainings, and observations. Upon completion of the two week orientation, they are eligible to work in the classroom. Q: How do I sign my kid up for Youth Sports Program? A: You can sign your child up for Youth Sports at the SAC front desk or online. If you have an account with CYP Online Services, you can sign up and pay online through your account. If you don’t have an account, look at the first question for directions on how to set up an account or visit any CYP facility for information packet.
Q: Can you open more classrooms? A: Our center is budgeted and staffed for the number of enrolled full-time patrons. In the event that we have a need for more full-time children, we could potentially open up more classrooms. We can hire more individuals based off of our enrollment numbers and full-time waitlist. CDC Phone: 727-1100 / 956-82-1100 Email: email@example.com
Q: I am a new arrival and I need care for my child for ICR, what do I need to do? A: Families and/or sponsors that would like to request FREE child care to attend ICR class must contact the CDC directly for children age six weeks to five years or contact the SAC program for kindergarteners thru sixth grade. The program will then email the family or sponsor on how to register. Registration paperwork and shot records will be required prior to starting in our programs. Additionally, if a patron has a special need such as asthma, food allergies, or any medical need requiring medication or other accommodations, please come see us beforehand as the process takes a little bit longer and requires additional paperwork. It is important that you bring medical prescriptions even for over-thecounter medications. Child care spaces for ICR is based on availability. We hold several spots for ICR and if we do not have any patrons sign up for ICR then we open the spaces for hourly care. To register with CDC Rota, call DSN 727-1100 or internationally +34 956 82 1100, or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org . To register for SAC Rota, call DSN 727-2839 or internationally +34 956 82 2839 or by email, email@example.com. Q: Why can’t retirees utilize spaces for camp? A: The Department of Defense identifies child care as a critical element of the military family readiness and has established policy that emphasizes the importance of providing child care for eligible families in cases where all parents or caregivers residing with the child are working outside the home. Therefore, we are only authorized to accept dependents of retirees desiring custodial care (CDC or SAC/Camp) if space is available and written approval is provided by CNIC to the program. Dependents of retirees are however eligible to participate in Youth Programs such as league sports.
Q: What are the requirements to register my child in the part time program? A: Our part-time program is Monday thru Friday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Unlike hourly care, part-time program services are planned and managed as an established program option in its entirety. The pre-set part-time care eligibility requires the spouse to be employed and/or enrolled in school. For questions about part-time eligibility, please bring in documentation to the CDC so that we assess eligibility status through our eligibility matrix. Q: Why aren’t there more time options for hourly spaces? A: Our center is budgeted and staffed for the number of enrolled full-time patrons. Any spaces that we have left over after meeting our full-time and part-time needs are then opened up for ICR/hourly care reservations. Our hourly care space availability fluctuates daily and is predicated on the number of staff we have on board that day and classroom ratios. We strive to maximize our space and to accommodate parents as best we can, but because we believe in our high standards of care, our daily availability is a finite number.

The season of change is upon us! Spring has given way to a pleasant summer. Around the base, there have been changes of command and changes of charge. Faces, addresses, and maybe even orders have changed as the summer PCS cycle hits its stride. Each day brings fresh confirmation of the old adage that, in the military, the only constant is change… and for some, that is terrifying! The fear of the unknown, potential for discomfort, risk of failure, and loss of control that accompany significant change all stretch us in ways. In response, we may feel our only options are fight, flight, or freeze, and our only hope is to just survive. What if instead of resisting and resenting these unavoidable seasons of change, we instead embraced them as God-given opportunities for growth? Change is simply a reflection of the progression of life, and I believe that God has a purpose for each season through which I pass. That understanding frees me to see that there are at least three potential opportunities for growth in each of the unsettled times in my life. Growth through Reflection. When you find yourself embroiled in change, take time to reflect on some of its benefits. Not all change is bad! Think of change as a breath of fresh air that helps us to grow and learn. For example, the change in fashion that helped us to learn that the polyester leisure suits and that garishly patterned ties of the 70’s were really bad ideas was definitely a positive change! If we stay the same, then we are not growing or learning, and that stagnation affects us physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. Change provides a rich environment for personal growth and invites us to understand more about who we are. Change creates excitement in our lives. Imagine how boring life would be in a world with no change! Knowing exactly what each day brought with no surprises at all would be tedious and terrible. Change helps make life interesting and exciting.

Growth through Reconnection. Many times, our lives accumulate so many non-essential elements that it crowds out the most important, especially the pursuit of our faith. Seasons of change give us the occasion to “PCS-purge” our lives of nonessentials and to make much-needed room for what matters most. It is especially when everything else in my life is unsettled that I find strength and comfort in truths that are timeless and unchanging. For me that begins with an understanding of the faithful, unchanging character of my God. The Bible says that God “does not change like shifting shadows” and is the “same yesterday, today, and forever.” God’s immovable stability in my instability gives me an anchor of security in my stormy times, and help me to know that in each season and “in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Growth through Redirection. Socrates said, “An unexamined life is not worth living.” By that he meant that a life worth living is one in which we are continually examining our progress toward our purpose, making sure we are ever advancing toward becoming what we were purposed to become. When we go through periods of upheaval, it is the perfect chance to pause, look back across our life journey so far, and evaluate our progress towards God’s purpose for us. Based that evaluation and our present position, we can then choose to chart a new course for our life. Growth does not often happen by accident, but is usually the result of intentional choices to embrace change. When we fight against change, when we complain, when we push against it, when we strive to get everything back the way we want it, we forget that everything God allows in our lives works out for our good. Embracing change in our lives is an act of trusting God. Not every change will be good. Not every change will makes our lives better. Not every change will make us wealthier, happier and more successful. But every change we face ushers us into God’s plan for our lives. Instead of complaining about change, we should embrace it. Accept it. Allow God to move in the midst of changes we don’t like. Change is the catalyst God uses to draw us closer to Him. So, when we embrace change, either positive or negative, we embrace the God who brings the change. So take it from David Bowie, when it comes to ch-ch-ch-ch-changes in your life, just “turn and face the strange,” embrace the change, and enjoy the ride!

BM2 Matthew Griffiths
By AT3 M. Jang, NAVSTA Rota Public Affairs
Griffiths is a coxswain assigned to NAVSTA Rota’s Port Operations Department. His duties involve oil spill prevention and small boat operations in support of the installation’s forward-deployed destroyers. “BM2 is one of our most talented and diversified coxswains who recently qualified for his fifth boat platform,” said John Dunham, maintenance and logistics department head. “His diligence and skillsets have earned him the responsibility of operating the department’s largest and most difficult pilot boat. His job is to safely embark and disembark the NAVSTA harbor pilots, who dock and undock all the U.S. ships entering and leaving the harbor.” Along with his primary duties, some of his collateral duties include being the installation’s ceremonial boatswain’s mate, the Port Ops explosive safety petty officer and he also finds time to be an MWR committee member and a NavyMarine Corps Relief Society volunteer. “Griffiths is a reliable and trustworthy Sailor who has shown immense improvement with
qualifications and contributions to the mission here at Port Ops and the command as a whole,” said Engineman 1st Class Reynald Salazar, departmental leading petty officer. Having served in the Navy for over seven years, the Louisville, Kentucky native is not new to hard work and finding a balance between all that he takes on. “My key to success is to attempt a little bit of everything even if it’s outside of your job description and hope to use that knowledge in the future,” said Griffiths. “My motivation comes from my wife and daughter.” Griffiths is enjoying his tour in Rota with his family as he is at his halfway mark in his tour with a year and a half left. “I love Rota,” said Griffiths. “Spain altogether is a beautiful country and I wouldn’t mind being stationed here again.” Griffiths is currently working to advance to the next pay grade to achieve his long term goal of becoming a chief warrant officer in the Navy.

The diverse group, originally from Ghana, China, Nigeria, and Mexico, met several eligibility requirements which included skill in the English language and knowledge of American history and government. “We are proud and privileged to recognize this special ceremony where you have been naturalized as America’s newest citizens,” Ronald Nelson, overseas adjudications officer, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Rome Field Office. “When you started this process, you represented four different countries. You now represent one nation and you all
bring something unique from your homeland and add it to America’s diverse national character.” Among many new rights and responsibilities that come with becoming a U.S. citizen, including the ability to petition for more family members, obtaining a U.S. passport and the ability to obtain a federal job and other government benefits, one of the most important is the ability to vote and run for public office. “It is an important right and responsibility you now have to get out and vote. Let your voice be heard and make a difference for what you believe in,” said Nelson. After watching a video and reciting the oath, a fellow naturalized citizen from Jamaica shared some insight on her long journey to becoming a citizen, a journey that took 10 years. “I started this process in 1993 and in 2003, a few years after I joined the Navy, I was proud to say that I was an American citizen,” said Senior Chief Culinary Specialist Dominique Webb. “The process to become a United States citizen is no easy task but you started it as soon as you began your relationship with the U.S. Navy. Now that you are a citizen, you need to be active. Get out there and vote, be productive in society and leave a legacy. Even though you are now American, don’t forget

where you came from.” The four new Americans then watched a video where their president, Donald Trump, congratulated them and expanded on their new responsibilities. “It is with great pride that I welcome you to the American family,” said Trump “No matter where you come from or the faith you practice, this country is now your country. You now can enjoy the full rights and sacred duty that comes with American citizenship. You now share the obligation to teach our values to others, to help newcomers to assimilate to our way of life and uplift America by living according to its highest ideals of self-governance and the highest standards.” Since October 2001, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has naturalized more than 110,000 members of the military. The Navy Region Europe, Africa, Southwest Asia (EURAFSWA) Legal Service Office had the privilege to assist this group incredible men and women during their naturalization process. “It feels great to call myself an American,” said Lin. “I wanted to become an American as soon as I got here and now I can say I’m American and in the Navy. It’s a great feeling.”

On an early morning in November, a couple boards a private plane bound for Geneva, flying into a storm. Soon after, it simply drops off the radar, and its wreckage is later uncovered in the Alps. Among the disappeared is Matthew Lerner, a banking insider at Swiss United, a powerful offshore bank. His young widow, Annabel, is left grappling with the secrets he left behind, including an encrypted laptop and a shady client list. As she begins a desperate search for answers, she determines that Matthew's death was no accident, and that she is now in the crosshairs of his

powerful enemies. Meanwhile, ambitious society journalist Marina Tourneau has finally landed at the top. Now that she's engaged to Grant Ellis, she will stop writing about powerful families and finally be a part of one. Her entry into the upper echelons of New York's social scene is more appealing than any article could ever be, but, after the death of her mentor, she agrees to dig into one more story. While looking into Swiss United, Marina uncovers information that implicates some of the most powerful men in the financial world, including some who are too close to home. The story could also be the answer to Annabel's heartbreaking search—if Marina chooses to publish it. (Review from www.goodreads.com.)

Four Minutes to Better VOLED: Navy College Program Launches New Survey By Ed Barker Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center Public Affairs The Navy College Program (NCP) announced a new, more efficient customer service opinion survey July 24, as part of the continuing improvement process for Voluntary Education. "The survey asks for Sailors' opinions about the Navy College Program's education support, counseling services, information, and admin," said Don Squibb, Navy VOLED assessments program manager. "We're seeking feedback on their experience so we can adjust and improve our service." According to Squibb, the new survey asks only ten questions, and the average Sailor completes their input in just over four minutes. "The surveys are the primary channel we have to gather customer input on how we're doing, and we use the fleet feedback to refine the service delivery of the Navy College Virtual Education Center," he said. "By shortening the survey, we hope to increase participation while retaining key information. One Sailor that participated in both the longer and shorter NCP surveys is Aviation Structural Mechanic 1st Class (AW) Brad Powell, instructor at the Naval
Air Technical Training Center. "The new Navy College Program survey gets right to the point and only took a couple of minutes to get my opinions," said Powell. "I can tell that the Navy College folks value my time and are genuinely interested in improving the VOLED experience." Navy VOLED Director Ernest D'Antonio noted that constant process improvement is key to serving Sailor's educational needs. "Over the past two years, we've made significant improvements to the Navy College Program's customer service, and much of that was based on Sailor input," said D'Antonio. "We've completely revamped the Navy College Program website, added customerfriendly improvements such as our mobile application, automated WebTA processing, chat and trouble-ticket features, made self-service improvements in My Education and to NCP internal processes to ensure we are meeting Sailor's high expectations in keeping with CNP's transformation guidance. Any Sailor, CONUS or OCONUS, can use the survey link to provide feedback." One measure of NCP success that has been identified by the customer satisfaction surveys is the number of times a Sailor has to contact the
Navy College Virtual Education Center (NCVEC) in order to solve a problem. "According to our latest survey feedback, 80 percent of Sailors are able to resolve their issue with their first call to the NCVEC," said Squibb. "That's not perfect, but it's a great indication that we're moving in the right direction." The link to the new NCP customer service opinion survey is: http://www. research.net/r/NCVEC_CSAT_SURV_V2 Squibb also emphasized that Fleet survey responses are anonymous and their identification will not be shared. "The way this program works, combined with the way I send out the invitations, makes it impossible to identify a Sailor who prefers to remain anonymous," said Squibb. "If someone wants to receive a call-back from the NCVEC regarding an issue they raised in their response, they may voluntarily include their contact information, but it's not mandatory. We read all the comments, regardless of whether or not Sailors self-identify, so their comments definitely will be reviewed for appropriate action." More information can be found by visiting the Navy College Program website: http://www.navycollege.navy. mil/index.htm including how to start the education process, complete required training, submit a Help Request through
the NCVEC, initiate a Live Chat session, or review knowledge management articles. The NCVEC can be reached toll free by calling 1-877-838-1659; DSN 4924684, Monday-Friday 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST. An additional program, the United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP) works closely with the Department of Labor to provide nationallyrecognized apprenticeship programs that result in journeyman-level certificates of completion for members of the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) NEX Customers By Defense Media Activity
For many military spouses, completing education and career goals are a major concern as they balance life with a loved one in the military. A Defense Manpower Data Center study revealed that 27.1% of military spouses listed furthering their education or training as an important milestone. While military life may present unique challenges for spouses like frequent moves and funding issues, the Department of Defense (DoD) has taken steps to address those concerns. The Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) is a career development and employment assistance program, sponsored by the DoD Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program, and provides up to $4,000 (over 2 years) of Financial Assistance for military spouses who are continuing their education by pursuing a license, certification, or Associates degree in a portable career field and occupation. What else does MyCAA Offer? Training and Education Financial Assistance – MyCAA provides a maximum education benefit of up to $4,000 with an annual fiscal year cap of $2,000 to assist eligible military spouses in acquiring a professional
credential needed to meet their Portable Career goal. Annual cap waivers are available if there is an upfront tuition cost that exceeds $2,000 (up to the maximum education benefit of $4,000). Employment Readiness Counseling – Counseling services are provided to all military spouses married to active duty service members of all ranks, regardless of their eligibility to receive MyCAA financial assistance and their desire to pursue higher levels of education. Counseling services help military spouses identify additional sources of federal, state, and local financial assistance expanded career choices and opportunities, and necessary support resources (e.g., child care, transportation, books, computers, equipment, supplies, etc.). Employment Assistance and Career Services – Referrals are made to networks of military friendly employers for MyCAA

Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi (Ret), Chief Executive Officer, Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) presented a check for $241,030 to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society representing money donated by NEX customers during a promotion held in the spring. “For the past seven years, NEX customers have supported the NavyMarine Corps Relief Society during its fund drive and this year was no exception,” said Bianchi. “The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society gives outstanding support to our active duty military community. I am proud to be able to present this donation on behalf of our customers.” “Thanks to the entire NEXCOM organization for this donation,” said Adm. Steve Abbot, USN (Ret.), President and CEO, Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. “We are extremely grateful for your support through the annual coupon sale and for your partnership throughout the year. Your support really does make a difference for the Society and for those we serve.” Since 2011, NEXCOM has been partnering with Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society on an annual fund raising effort. Since its inception, NEX patrons have donated nearly $2 million through this effort. In return for a $5 donation to Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, customers receive a card that entitled them to specific discounts for a one-time purchase at a NEX in April 2018.

Sanlúcar de Barrameda Horse Races Every August, horses and jockeys thunder down the beaches of Sanlúcar de Barrameda for the annual Carreras de Caballos. These unique horse races, which have been continuously held since 1845, are part of the national circuit and therefore subject to the norms that regulate other official equestrian competitions. The races typically take place in the late afternoon or early evening with race times set based on the tide tables. In between races, race goers relax on the beach or place their bets at one of the many makeshift cardboard betting booths designed by entrepreneurial youth. This year’s races will take place the weekend of August 8-10 and August 22-24. For more information and specific race times, visit www.carrerrassanlucar.es/en.
