Established during the Civil War as a burial ground for Union soldiers, Arlington National Cemetery has taken in the remains of more than 400,000 Americans. More than 4 million people visit the cemetery annually. From May through June of this year, the cemetery will host a series of events to commemorate Arlington's 150 years as a national cemetery. "This celebration is on behalf of the people who have served and sacrificed, for every man and woman who has worn that uniform," said Patrick Hallinan, director of the cemetery. "It's taking a look back and saying, here's the heritage, here's the military heritage of service and sacrifice everyone has served that has worn the uniform, everyone has contributed, and many have made the supreme sacrifice."

Update to Anti-Smog Traffic Ban in Naples
June 6, 20: Navy Second Class Swimmer Qualification Testing
I hope everyone had a safe and fun Memorial Day. One group was especially busy during the long weekend; I couldn’t be prouder of our student athletes and their coaches, who give so much time and energy to ensure these young people succeed. Last Thursday, the Naples High School girls’ soccer team won their fifth consecutive European Championship for Division II DoDDs schools, which has never before been done, by any other team in any other sport. The all-tournament MVP for girls’ soccer was Naples’ own Isabella Lucy, dominating in goals and assists. Boys’ soccer also achieved a historical achievement of fourth place in their tourney, advancing well past previous seasons. Boys’ baseball won their second European championship, and currently sits with a 33-0 record, remaining undefeated for two years. George Shaffer, who was 10/10 in the first two days of the tourney, took MVP overall. Additionally, he took fourth place for tennis in Europe. Boys’ track also had a great weekend, winning the Division II track meet and boasting the skills of the fastest boy in Europe, Cameron Copeland. Kudos to Cameron, who took gold in both 100 and 200 meter events with faster times than all boys from Divisions I, II, and III. Last weekend’s events cap off a great winter and spring, where the Wildcats boys’ basketball team placed second and girls took fifth in Division II. Girls’ softball finished second in their division, losing only to Vicenza all season. Well done to all the athletes that brought about these incredible results. Our student athletes clearly excel at their sports, but I also want to thank the great coaches that get the most out of our kids. NHS is a small-staffed school, and 15 hours away from most competitors by bus. These students are able to withstand long transit times and emerge as champions on arrival. Parents of these students support their athletic endeavors tirelessly, traveling to events and ferrying kids to practice. Our success is truly a community achievement-thank you to all who make it possible. Though spring sports are wrapping up, summer is right around the corner, with plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy all that southern Italy has to offer. Within our own installations, the pools at Carney Park and the Support Site are ramping up summer hours; the Support Site pool opened last weekend and Carney park opens in a couple of weeks with the conclusion of the school year. The Reel Time Theatre is offering more movie showings each weekend than ever before, so there’s something to do even on rainy days. Get out and enjoy your weekend!

Navy Chaplain Participates in Run with 70th Anniversary Memorial Torch
Michelangelo Exhibit Opens in Rome Capitoline Museum opened a Michelangelo exhibition in Rome on Tuesday. The “Universal Artist” highlights the Renaissance master with 150 works, including busts, sketches, statues and oil paintings by Michelangelo and his contemporaries. The show starts off with “Madonna of the Steps,” a sculpture made by the artist at the age of 15. Michelangelo Buonarroti was born in Arezzo in 1475. He worked for six popes and in his old age, he became closer to his Christian faith as seen in “Crucifixions” and “Resurrections” shown in the exhibition. The show runs until Sept. 14.
Festivals and Fairs Highlight Summer in Campania
Birth of the Italian Republic Celebrated June 2 Italy celebrates Festa della Repubblica Italiana, June 2, to commemorate the birth of the Italian Republic. An institutional referendum was held on June 2 and 3 1946, following the fall of Fascism and the end of World War II, in which Italians were asked to vote on what form of government they preferred, either a monarchy or republic. The majority of Italians chose a republic and the monarchs of the House of Savoy were exiled. In June 1948, Rome hosted a military parade in honor of the Republic and the following year, with Italy’s entry into NATO, ten parades took place simultaneously across the country. On May 27, 1949, lawmakers passed Article 260, cited June 2 as data di fondazione della Repubblica (date of the founding of the Republic) and declared it a national holiday. In 1950 the military parade was included for the first time in the protocol of official celebrations. Due to the economic crisis in March 1977, the Republic Day celebration was moved to the first Sunday in June. Only in 2001 was the celebration moved back to

June 2, becoming a public holiday again. The commemorations start with the laying of the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Rome, followed by the military parade with the flyover of the Frecce Tricolori squadron (air force aerobatic team) Giorgio Napolitano, President of Italy and the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces presides over the military parade. In the afternoon, the gardens of the Palazzo del Quirinale will be open to the public with free entrance. Concerts and music are performed by the bands of all the Italian Armed Forces.
Theft of Six Million Euros from Italian Army Treasuries The Italian army was involved in the arrest of three people for allegedly playing a role in the theft of six million euros from Italian army treasuries. Others are under investigation by military and prosecutors’ offices for embezzlement, money laundering, and reinvestment of money laundering proceeds. An army marshal is believed to be the mastermind and has been suspended and stripped of his rank. His case
is being dealt with by military and civilian prosecutors. He was a treasurer of the army’s central administration from 2010-2013 and allegedly skimmed about six million euros from the bank account used to pay the salaries of personnel. An accountant then channeled the money into the bank accounts of dozens of accomplices who were recruited in the province of Naples. The army marshal is accused of using embezzled funds for vacations, cars and homes. Investigators also say he used the money to fund his activities as an amateur singer.
Association Says Italy has One Pet for Every Person According to the Food and Care of Animals association, there are 60.5 million pets in Italy, an equivalent of one pet for every person. Thirty million of the pets are fish, followed by 13 million birds and 7.8 million cats coming in third, mostly living with single people. There are approximately 6.95 dogs, which mostly live with families. In 2013, Italians spent more than 1.77 billion euros to feed their pets. The United States pet-food market is worth 15.5 billion euros.

Annually, typically in September, Ombudsmen across military installations are honored for their service. This year, to credit all of our Ombudsmen before many transfer from the area, Fleet and Family Support Center Naples moved their Recognition Dinner to the month of May and honored 16 Ombudsmen by recognizing and celebrating their selfless dedication to our many commands, all while continuing to take care of their own families and other personal obligations. “Ombudsmen are the Connecting Branches” was this year’s theme for the dinner held at Villa Fortezza Ristorante in Monte Di Procida. Ombudsmen connect families with commands and help them navigate through the challenges of the military lifestyle. Special guests included Capt. Scott Gray, commanding officer of Naval Support Activity Naples, and command leadership for each Ombudsman in attendance. The Protocol Combo ensemble, a component of the U.S Naval Forces

Navy Spouses have been serving our families as Ombudsmen for the last four decades since former Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Elmo Zumwalt introduced the program to the Navy in 1970. “You as Ombudsmen carry on this tradition of speaking up to those of us in positions of leadership on behalf of a group that bears a significant portion of the burden of service,” said Gray. “You volunteer to take this on, and I thank you for your time and sacrifice.” Each Ombudsman present received an award. Each command’s leadership took part in making their remarks competitively special, from Protocol Ensemble
playing “Isn’t She Lovely” when their Ombudsman was called forward, to Capt. Matthew W. Pommer Jr., commanding officer of U.S. Naval Hospital Naples, and his mock phone call from the President of the United States via the Secretary of the Navy. “In our darkest hours it is certainly easier to see how brightly each of you shine,” said Gray. “I could not do what I do without you. You make our success as a community possible with the many hours you give up, often with your own family, to take care of our larger one.” With more than 5,000 Ombudsmen volunteering 10 or more hours of their time per week, Ombudsmen are the key to service members and their families as well

Navy updates enlisted advancement Policy By MC1 Elliott Fabrizio, Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs
NAVADMIN 114/14 announced changes to its current enlisted advancement policy, including a new formula for the Final Multiple Score (FMS) and changes to the Command Advancement Program (CAP), May 15. These revisions are designed to reward sustained superior performance and strengthen the role of the command triad (commanding officer, executive officer, and command master chief) in the advancement of their Sailors. "This isn't the first time we've done this," said Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Mike Stevens. "Periodically we take a look at how we're advancing Sailors and how the final multiple score is put together. We do that based on feedback we get from the fleet." The final multiple score is a weight-based calculation used to rank Sailors eligible for advancement. In the new FMS, the value of the advancement exam becomes the largest factor considered for advancement to E-4 and E-5, increasing in weight by eight percent, going from 37 percent to 45 percent. For E-6 and E-7, Performance Mark Average (PMA) becomes the largest factor in determining Sailors' FMS. For advancement to E-6, PMA increased three percent and now counts for 50 percent of the FMS calculation. For advancement to E-7, PMA increased 10 percent to count for 60 percent of the total FMS. This adjustment changes the emphasis on how performance is measured for junior and senior Sailors. "Leadership's expectation is that junior Sailors know their occupational skill," said Fleet Master Chief for Manpower Personnel Training and Education April Beldo. "As they rise to the level of E-6 and E-7, we're looking for them to be ready to be in a management and leadership role, so
their performance is more weighted." The Good Conduct Medal and the Reserve Meritorious Service Medal will no longer contribute award points in the FMS. "We were seeing that the majority of our Sailors receive this award, and so to give a point for it was a zero sum," said Stevens. "Sailors weren't gaining anything by it." Sailors who pass the advancement exam, but do not advance due to quotas limitations, are eligible to receive Pass Not Advanced (PNA) points; however, the new policy limits PNA points to the top 25 percent of Sailors: 1.5 PNA points go to the top 25 percent of Sailors by test score, and 1.5 go to the top 25 percent by performance mark average. "I believe putting this 25-percent window in place will motivate Sailors," said Stevens. "It's not just about passing the exam. It's about passing the exam with flying colors." Total PNA points in the FMS are determined from a Sailor's last five advancement cycles for a maximum of 15 possible points. Service in pay grade has been reduced from seven percent to a weight of one percent of the Final Multiple Score for advancement to E-4 through E-6. Changes to the Command Advancement Program will take effect Oct. 1 for fiscal year 2015. The new policy establishes the period from July 1 to Sept. 30 as the Navy's CAP Season, and that timeframe is the only time that commands can CAP Sailors. MCPON added that this change is designed to prevent commands from inadvertently over manning ratings by promoting Sailors after the Navy establishes the quotas needed based on vacancies. "By capping first and then building the Navywide advancement exam quotas, we prevent that from happening and allows us to maintain stable rating health," said Stevens.

Energy Conservation What to know before buying light bulbs From the NSA Naples Energy Management Team There are a variety of lighting options on the market. There are incandescent bulbs, LEDs, CFLs and many more. Knowing a little bit of information about the various types can assist you when deciding which bulbs are best for you, and even help you save money and energy. The use of traditional incandescent light bulbs was once a common practice among American households. Unfortunately, they have been found to be one of the bigger energy wasters among the various lighting selections. These bulbs produce heat. Ninety percent of the energy used is wasted on heat and the remaining 10 percent of energy is actually used to light the bulb. Compact florescent lights can be energy efficient, but users should be aware of the proper usage in order to effectively conserve energy and maximize the bulb’s lifespan. These lights are best used in an area that requires use for more than 15 minutes. Switching the lights “on” and “off” frequently can shorten the bulb’s lifespan because it is designed to be in operation for a longer length of time. Light Emitting Diodes (LED) are energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Factors such as how long it is left “on” or how often it is switched “off” have no negative impact on its lifespan. LEDs are not made with mercury and contain no filament, which makes it a little harder to break compared to an incandescent light bulb. LEDs tend to be more expensive than the other lighting options on the market, but the lifespan is typically 25,000 hours compared to the 2,000 hours of an incandescent bulb.

Veterans Honored at American Cemetery in Italy By MCSN Weston Jones, Navy Public Affairs Support Element East-Detachment Europe
Commander, U.S. 6th Fleet traveled to the Sicily-Rome American Cemetery and Memorial in Nettuno, Italy, to honor American service members who have lost their lives in the line of duty, May 26. Vice Adm. Phil Davidson attended the memorial service as a guest speaker to honor 7,861 dead and 3,095 missing American sons and daughters who sacrificed everything in defense of our nation.
“Memorial Day is the occasion where we honor those who have sacrificed their lives in the service of our Nation,” said Davidson. “I thank God for the men and women who went before us for the liberty and the freedom they provided their generation and the generations that followed.” Americans and Italians alike participated in the memorial ceremony at Nettuno. “For those of us stationed in Italy, the Italians are great partners and we appreciate

their friendship and support in everything we do,” said Davidson. The U.S. Naval Forces Europe band also participated along with an Italian military band. “It was good to perform here. I’m glad so many people still appreciate the sacrifices made here,” said Musician 2nd Class Amber Hosmer. “What they did was very important and they are not forgotten.” Following the remarks, wreaths were laid and an Italian firing detail honored veterans with a 21-gun salute before "Taps" was played. “These brave men made the ultimate sacrifice, and they were willing to defend us knowing full well they may,” said John Mitchell, a U.S. Navy veteran. “It’s as Thomas Jefferson said, ‘eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.’” Nettuno and Anzio, Italy, are the locations of Operation Shingle, an Allied amphibious landing during World War II.
There are nearly 5,000 unknown soldiers buried at Arlington National Cemetery. The "Tomb of the Unknowns" has never been officially named and is guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Last year, remains recovered from the USS Monitor were interred in Arlington National Cemetery. The remains were discovered during the summer of 2002, in an attempt to recover the ship's 150-ton gun turret. Navy divers discovered human remains inside the turret. The remains were sent to be identified, but after a decade, were unsuccessful. The Monitor was made famous for battling the Confederate ship CSS Virginia, formerly USS Merrimack, on March 9, 1862, at Hampton Roads, Va., in the first fight between ironclad warships. The cemetery will also host lectures and tours that highlight the history of the United States through the eyes of the heroes buried at Arlington and the military conflicts that shaped the cemetery and the nation. "There's a lineage and there's a tradition and that's what we honor," Hallinan said. "So as comrades, as fellow citizens and as patriots, I think it's important that we get together and acknowledge that."

Vice Adm. Phil Davidson, commander of Naval Striking and Support Forces NATO (STRIKFORNATO), gives closing remarks, May 16, following Exercise Trident Jaguar 2014 aboard STRIKFORNATO's command and control platform USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20) in Gaeta, Italy. Trident Jaguar 2014 was a collective training event meant to prepare STRIKFORNATO to serve as a joint headquarters (maritime/expeditionary).

Exercise Trident Jaguar 2014 came to a close aboard USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20), Naval Striking and Support Forces NATO (STRIKFORNATO)’s command and control platform, as the ship pulled into its forward-deployed homeport of Gaeta, Italy, May 16. "I am truly pleased with what we have achieved during this dynamic exercise," said Vice Adm. Phil Davidson, commander of STRIKFORNATO. “Trident Jaguar presented a challenging scenario that allowed my staff to hone the skills needed to conduct combat operations across the full spectrum of modern warfare, wherever we may be called upon to deploy."
Trident Jaguar, a NATO-sponsored exercise, is part of a family of NATO training exercises developed to fit specific purposes and evaluation needs, and is a collective training event to certify STRIKFORNATO to serve as a joint headquarters (maritime/expeditionary) aboard Mount Whitney. The exercise focused on building the force’s ability to respond to crisis on short notice. The exercise also demonstrated interoperability between NATO allies as part of NATO’s broader connected forces initiative. The exercise, which began May 6 off the coast of Portugal, included both NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Spain and STRIKFORNATO. "It is a testament to the power of NATO that we can bring a record
number of nations together and then conduct complex and purposeful training in challenging scenarios like combat operations," said Davidson. An augmented force composed of NATO service members and civilians took part in various geopolitical and wartime scenarios during the two-week exercise, created to test their abilities to respond and react to a variety of situations. “We integrated a significant number of augments from across the alliance with our core staff in order to address the increased requirements that come from operating as a joint headquarters,” said Davidson. “We worked hard to quickly integrate the additional team members into our battle rhythm, and there was no way to tell the difference between our regular staff and our augments.” “This exercise demonstrates the flexibility of the individuals from many nations that bring a lot of different experience and skill to the table,” said Royal Marine Lt. Col Chris Ordway. “There are a lot of very talented people from partner nations that, in reality, we are going to work with in a real situation.” STRIKFORNATO, headquartered in Oeiras, Portugal, is the high-readiness, maritime-enabled joint headquarters directly responsible to Supreme Allied Commander, Europe for the command, control and rapid integration of major maritime and amphibious combat power for NATO, and now the ability to command and control joint forces as the sole joint headquarters.
The Story of the Sullivans By MC2 Amara Timberlake, All Hands Magazine
It was 1942, during the Battle of Guadalcanal, when a Japanese torpedo hit the port side of USS Juneau. The shock buckled the deck, shattered the fire control computers and knocked out power. Bruised, but not beaten, she rejoined the other American warships. Not long after, the task force crossed paths with Japanese submarine I-26. The submarine fired three torpedoes. One struck Juneau and the ensuing explosion blew the cruiser in half. It would be several days before rescue efforts would begin. When all was said and done, only 10 men were rescued. Across the world in Waterloo, Iowa, the Sullivan family waited for news of their loved ones - five brothers, Albert - 20, George - 27, Francis - 26, Joseph - 24, and Madison Sullivan - 23 - who had joined the Navy on the condition they would serve together. The news was not good. All five had perished. This was the greatest military loss by any one American family during World War II. News that the brothers had died hit their hometown of Waterloo hard. "The loss happened early in the war," said Robert Neymeyer, historian at the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum. "And it brought home to the whole nation, how dangerous this war was." In their honor, the guided missile destroyer USS The Sullivans (DDG 68) was commissioned. Kelly Sullivan-Loughren, granddaughter of Albert, was there to launch the ship in 1995, by ceremoniously breaking a champagne bottle against her bow. "I always say the ship is my first born," said Loughren, who was pregnant with her daughter at the time of the commissioning. "The only other time I felt like that, was giving birth." After the death of her brothers, Genevieve Sullivan joined the WAVES in 1943. Loughren's father Jim Sullivan, followed in the footsteps of his late father Albert, and joined in 1957. "I can't tell you why, but I felt that it was my calling to go into the Navy," said Jim. "My dad and my uncles were in the Navy ... to me, they were heroes. They did it, so I wanted to do it." Jim served as an interior communications electrician and later a construction electrician. Jim is humble about his service and during his time in the Navy, most his shipmates never knew about Jim's family history. "Because of the notoriety that my dad and my uncles got, I didn't want other Sailors to think that I wanted preferential treatment on board the ship I was on," said Jim. "I was just a Sailor like everybody else." Jim said what makes him proud, is knowing that the Sullivan's story is one of the first Sailors learn in basic training, but he also knows his family is a small chapter in the big Navy story. "It's not only my dad and my uncles," said Jim. "There were a lot of Sailors in World War II that lost their lives. Every one of them; we should remember all of them. It makes me feel good about the Navy, about the military and everybody that serves." The legacy of the Sullivan brothers still runs deep, not only through the Navy, but throughout their small town. From the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center to the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum, Neymeyer said there are two sides to honoring America's veterans in Iowa as well as nationwide. "It's really a reminder that if it's one individual or if it's five individuals, we are still putting people in harm's way," said Neymeyer. "One: We need to support them and two: we need to recognize their service."

royal engineers Visit amazon Bridge Site in Montecassino 70 years Later By Sgt. 1st Class VeShannah J. Lovelace, JFC Naples Public Affairs
A group of 15 service members and civilians, representing four nations from Allied Joint Force Command (JFC) Naples, paid homage to the Amazon Bridge site on the Rapido River at Montecassino in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the building of that bridge, May 13. The trip was led by the Amazon Club, a dining club consisting of Royal Engineers based in Naples, Italy, and included a diverse group of engineers, infantrymen, women and civilians from England, Canada, Germany and America. “It takes its name from the bridge that was built across the Rapido River exactly 70 years ago,” said British Army Col. David McIlroy, the senior Royal Engineer at JFC Naples and president of the Amazon Club. The Amazon Bridge took about 12 hours to build and was built over the Rapido River during the night of May 12, 1944. It opened at 5 a.m., on the morning of May 13. This was just one of the 2,494 bridges built by the Allied engineers during the Italian Campaign.
“It was a bridge that was put in at significant cost,” said McIlroy. “Of the lives lost on the British side on the day there were 15, and some 75 were injured during the build.” An original painting by war artist Terence Cuneo depicting the action of the crossing of the Rapido Bridge hangs in the Royal Engineers Headquarters Mess in Chatham, England. The Amazon Bridge holds major significance because the crossing allowed the Allies to break through the impenetrable Gustav Line, which turned the tide of the Italian Campaign. Prior to the Amazon Bridge thousands of lives and equipment had been lost by the Allies in fruitless attempts to break through the Gustav Line, which reached from Ortona on the Adriatic across Italy to Minturno on the other side. It was made up of a series of fortifications, minefields and other strong points based on the rivers and mountains that cross Italy. Part of that line included the strong point of Cassino and the Rapido River. It provided entry to the Liri Valley along Route 6 and was the gateway to Rome. The trip began with a visit to the Cassino War Cemetery seated below the Abbey of Montecassino. The abbey overlooks the Liri Valley and caused problems for the advancing forces. Sappers (a collective name for engineers) who lost their lives working on the Amazon Bridge are buried here. All the bridges built during the war were temporary structures with many reused in other locations. The site visited was not the exact location the bridge was built, however you could see it off in the distance. You could also see the abbey looming above, which helped envision the scene of those brave men building a bridge in the wee hours of the night under the cover of darkness while enduring heavy enemy fire. As we watched the steady flow of the current pass along the river, our host British veteran Derek Flippance, a time-served Sapper and volunteer curator and researcher from the Royal Engineers Museum in Kent, England, provided an oral history of the conditions under which the bridge was built. He also gave background information on the exact type of bridge and how it had to be construct-
ed under those conditions. Before the bridge was built, the distance across the river had to be measured. With that information delivered, and in full sight of the pace of the current, we listened as Flippance explained how the squadron’s strongest swimmer made it across the river with a line tied to his ankle to measure the 80foot gap. “To do this he donned a black pullover, used black boot polish on his legs and dived in carrying rope,” explained Flippance. “He managed to swim across and they were in the act of pulling the rope tight to get a true crossing span, when along the bank at the top a German patrol appeared. The person on the other end of the line saw the Germans; the guy in the water couldn’t see him because he was below them. The guy on the home bank began pulling him back and due to the current the swimmer ended up 30 yards downstream. In the end the gap was measured more by luck than judgment.” Details about the construction, the timeline and the adversity that accompanied it were all shared by Flippance. Confusion was created by open artillery fire, German guns fired smoke throughout the construction site, there was a loss of communications, Lorries and hay stacks were set ablaze, and the Sappers had to treat casualties throughout the night. “It’s amazing how with their lives threatened and under horrible conditions what all these soldiers did to achieve their objectives,” said German Army Lt. Col. Hans Jakobi, from JFC Naples. “Crossing this river was the key for this operation,” said Jakobi. “The Allied Forces planned and built eight bridges to bring all their armor on the other side, because fighting infantry-against-infantry, the German defenders had the better positions and to overwhelm them could only be done with armor, so these bridges were really the key to the whole operation.” The group placed a poppy wreath and memorial plaque near the site and observed a moment of silence. Due to the heroic actions of the Sappers on the evening of May 12, 1944, it was possible for the Allies to six-days-later break through the formidable Gustav Line and take Rome shortly after.

Obtaining your Sojourner Permit Italian law requires all foreign personnel working or living within Italy, other than an active-duty member under military orders, to obtain a Sojourner Permit within eight days of arrival in Italy. This is different from a visa, which is merely an approval for entry into the country. All applicants over 14 years of age must apply in person, as each person's signature is required at the time of application. NATIONALS OF ANY STATE OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY COMING TO ITALY DO NOT REQUIRE ANY VISA OR SOJOURNER PERMIT. As part of the Area Orientation process, the U.S. Region Legal Service Office (RLSO EURAFSWA) assists in the preparation and oversees the acquisition of the Sojourner Permit for all personnel attached to U.S. Navy commands in the Naples area. Army and Air Force personnel stationed at JFC must apply through the Carabiniere at the JFC Provost Marshall's Office, Building L.

Did you know that the Navy's zero tolerance policy for drug abuse applies to the misuse of prescription drugs? According to the Navy Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Office (NADAP), misuse of prescription drugs includes taking medicine for a purpose other than prescribed, taking medication that hasn't been prescribed to you and wrongfully possessing or distributing prescription drugs. Many Sailors don't realize that using someone else's prescription or taking the drugs outside of the intended purpose or timeframe is misuse of those medications with serious implications for the Sailor. Although prescription drugs are a legal, safe method of treating injury and illness when taken as prescribed by a physician, improper use is both illegal and dangerous-and in some cases deadly. To prevent prescription misuse among Sailors and Marines, NADAP's "Prescription for Discharge" campaign provides resources to educate service members and their families on how to safely use prescription drugs, and of the health and career risks of misuse. The campaign's five tips to avoid misusing prescription drugs are 1.) take correctly, 2.) report promptly, 3.) dispose properly, 4.) never share, and 5.) tell a friend. First and foremost, it's important to follow your doctor's orders and prescription instructions as directed. Health providers prescribe specific drugs and doses based on an individual's history and medical needs, and taking the drugs outside of that supervision could result in disciplinary actions and serious health consequences. Second, ensure that both Navy Medical and your command are aware of your current prescriptions. Sailors who test positive for prescription drugs without current, valid prescriptions will be subject to disciplinary action and may be processed for administrative separation from the Navy. It's critical for Sailors who have valid prescriptions to report them to Navy Medical and their command immediately so that their
records can be updated prior to drug testing. Third, once your condition has improved and your doctor has cleared you to stop taking your medication, it's important to quickly dispose of the medication to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. You can place unused or expired medications in a small plastic bag with used coffee grounds or another undesirable substance and throw the bag in the trash. Don't forget to cross out personal information on your prescription labels before recycling the containers. Forth, never share prescriptions with a friend, shipmate or family member. Using someone else's meds or giving pills to friends or shipmates can result in severe health and career consequences, including dishonorable discharge from the Navy. Lastly, tell a friend. By telling at least one person you know about the four steps outlined above, you can help maintain fleet readiness and prevent the misuse of prescription drugs among your shipmates. To further prevent prescription drugs from falling into the wrong hands, the U.S. Navy partners with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) by participating in National Take-Back Day held twice-yearly in April and October. Take-Back Day events provide an opportunity to turn in your unused or expired medications to your Medical Treatment Facility (MTF) or local drop-off site anonymously and free of charge. Collection sites can be found by going to www.dea.gov and clicking on the "Got Drugs?" banner at the top of the home page. For more information on the participating MTFs, you can contact the hospitals directly. If you or someone you know may have a problem with prescription drug misuse, NADAP encourages you to speak with your command drug abuse prevention officer or doctor, or call 1866-U-ASK-NPC. Navy personnel can find more information about the Prescription for Discharge campaign, including posters and flyers for medical facilities, leadership talking points and a medical provider toolkit, on the NADAP website,

But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances. Lt. Col. Bill Cage is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped -- untrained and ill-equipped -- into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. But, impossibly, he awakens back at the beginning of the same hellish day, and is forced to fight and die again and again. Direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop -- dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over. But with each pass, Cage becomes tougher, smarter, and able to engage the Mimics with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski, who has laid waste to more Mimics than anyone on Earth. As Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated battle becomes an opportunity to find the key to annihilating the alien invaders and saving the Earth.
