At approximately 4 a.m. Hu City was notified by the U.S. Coast Guard and guided-missile destroyer USS Mitscher (DDG 57) that a small craft in their vicinity had issued a distress signal and needed immediate assistance. Hu City Commanding Officer Capt. Jake Douglas and the ships crew turned to the last known position of the distressed boat, fishing vessel Barbara Lynn, and began the search. Approximately 20 minutes later, the cruisers look out spotted the flashing strobe light of the life raft and its three passengers Hu City deployed their search and rescue swim mer, STG3 Nathan Andrade, a native of Stockton, California, who swam to the life raft and assisted in attaching the rescue harness to each passenger. The ship recovered survivors using medical litters and a rescue davit. When I woke up to the call that someone needed to be rescued, I was just praying to God that everyone was safe, said Andrade. Thanks to great teamwork from the boatswains mates and everyone else willing to help, we were able to save everyone and bring them on board safely. Two hours after receiving the distress call, all three passengers were aboard Hu City with no significant injuries. Following the rescue, the recovered personnel were transferred by an embarked helicopter from Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 70 to Naval Station Mayport for further assessment and treatment. Our crew was excited to assist in the rescue of fel low mariners, said Lt. Steven Deering of HSM-70. But none of it would have been possible if it werent for the Coast Guard aiding in finding the survivors, the Hu City expertly maneuvering to safely pick them up, and the HSM-70 maintenance personnel who were able to get the aircraft ready for the medevac on short notice. It was an incredible coordinated effort to make sure those people got back to their families safely. Douglas added, The Hu City team did a great job this morning. They showed their excellence in sea manship and exemplified the Navy core values. We are glad to have been able to assist fellow mariners at sea. Hu City is underway supporting Carrier Strike Group 4 Task Force Exercise 18-2. By Lt. Brian F. OBannon Commander Task Force 67 Public Affairs Officer Naval Air Station (NAS) Sigonella hosted exercise Dynamic Manta 2018, a NATO led anti-submarine and antisurface warfare exercise featuring 11 maritime patrol aircraft from eight dif ferent countries. Dynamic Manta is held yearly out of NAS Sigonella, Italy, while Commander, Task Force (CTF) 67 assumes its NATO role as maritime air controlling authority (MACA). MACA Sigonella hosts NATO elements and is responsible for briefing every air crew, ensuring safety of flight, providing real-time debriefing products, and for the first year ever of overall exercise control staff. Whether for an exercise or a NATO operation, MACA Sigonella is accus tomed to its dual-hatted role, and this exercise was no different. MACA Sigonella watch teams expertly managed both U.S. 6th Fleet opera tions while simultaneously relaying safety of flight reports from air borne Turkish P-235s, French Atlantique-IIs, Canadian CP-140s, Spanish P-3Ms, German P-3Cs, Italian and United Kingdom EH-101 Merlins, and US P-8A Orions flying in support of Dynamic Manta. Every year Dynamic Manta is a challenging exercise for both the participating units, and ourselves as MACA Sigonella, said Capt. Bill Ellis, commodore, MACA Sigonella. This year was no different and the challenges we overcome together whether being logistical, operational, or language barriers continue to prove NATO is the worlds premiere war fight ing alliance.

By Reggie Jarrett Jax Air News Editor More than 70 stateside com missaries, including Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, honored the military members who were on active duty during the Vietnam War era as part of Vietnam Veterans Day March 29. All Vietnam era veterans who served from Nov. 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975 were invited to attend the ceremony hosted by the Defense Commissary Agency. We are showing apprecia tion for their service, said Bob Darden, assistant store director of the NAS Jacksonville com missary. It is something veter ans are deserving of. About 20 Vietnam veterans who attended the ceremony received a lapel pin and other gifts, as well as a handshake and a thank you. Thanking them is the most important thing, Darden said. Because when many vet erans came home from the Vietnam War they did not feel appreciated as they anticipated they would. One of the veterans at the ceremony was Tyrone Oakes, who joined the Army in 1969.

By Lisa Smith Molinari Special Contributor If I had a dollar for every time Ive slapped my hand to my forehead and thought, Im such a fool, Id be rich. They say whoever they are that one should live without regrets, but for me, regret has always been a part of my schtick. Something in my childhood made me this way a person who focuses on her own faults and beats herself up for them. Some are lucky to have iron-clad egos that protect them from criti cism and self-doubt. I, on the other hand, was a kid with dreaded self-esteem issues that com pelled me to constantly seek reassurance. Like many people with insecurities, humor and selfdeprecation became my defense mechanisms. At my first dance in middle school, I won best costume when I came dressed as a huge onion, much to my parents dismay. That night, I got the laughs and attention I was shooting for, along with a Boomtown Rats record as my first-place prize. But, not surprisingly, no boys asked me to dance. In high school, my misplaced pleas for attention earned me the title 1984 Class Clown, which I hid from my parents until it was reported in my hometown newspaper. Needless to say, they were not amused. In college, I fully embraced my newfound freedom to make a complete idiot of myself, much of which (mercifully) I cannot recall. The college memories that are clear make me cringe with embarrassment to this very day. Thankfully, digital photography and social media had not yet been invented. As a young adult in the workforce, I thought I made every rookie mistake in the book and was doomed to failure. I was actually quite fastidi ous, dedicated, hard-working and reliable, but as always, I focused on everything I did wrong rather than right. Today I still feel as if Im bumbling through life. Im always running late, I inevitably burn the toast, I say the wrong thing, I overstay my welcome, I never remember peoples names, I eat too much. But as our last child prepares to graduate from high school and leave the nest for college, Im reflecting more clearly on my last 24 years as a military wife and mother of three, and Im sur prised to find that I have no shame, no remorse, no regrets. In fact, I feel pretty damned good about it. Being a military wife and mother hasnt been easy by any means. At first, marrying a Navy guy seemed so glamorous. At our wedding, our relatives oohed and ahhed when Francis uni formed buddies formed a sword arch. Everyone believed we would lead a life of adventure, honor, pomp and circumstance. But reality soon hit, and I found myself where most military spouses eventually turn up alone in an unfamiliar place without a job or friends, solely responsible for the household and kids. Facing daunting circumstances, nature, instinct or pure necessity kicked in, revealing qualities I didnt know I possessed. I didnt make a conscious decision to be a dedicated wife and mother, I just did what need ed to be done without thinking about it. Hour after hour, day after day, year after year. When we were stationed in England, and our son was diagnosed with autism spectrum dis order, I shed tears, then hit the ground running because I had no choice. During deployments and TDY, I did what every military spouse does I chopped onions, did carpool pick ups, nursed the baby, cut grass, took out garbage, paid bills, folded laundry, vis ited in-laws and fixed the leaky faucet. The added responsibility and stress that mili tary moves, deployments and separations added to marriage and parenting forced me to put my own fragile ego aside and get to work. Looking back now, I realize that I the bumbling class clown became a rock for our family. I mix up left and right, forget to add email attachments, miss exits, and overcook beef, but Im no fool. Im a proud military wife and mother, who did whatever it took to create a stable home, and to raise three human beings who will soon go out into this world and touch the lives of others.

4 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, April 5, 2018 By Julie M. Lucas NAS Jacksonville Public Affairs The Chief Petty Officers (CPO) from Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax) and tenant commands celebrated 125 years of serving in the U.S. Navy with a week of activities. We wanted a week to show our Sailors what being a chief means, being a part of some thing bigger than just yourself, said ADC Catherine Cameron of Fleet Readiness Center Southeast and CPO Association events coordinator. A 5K run kicked off the week March 26 at the antenna farm. The first 200 finishers were given a special medal, to com memorate the significance of the years. For those who missed the run, we are also doing a virtual run, which can be completed at any time, said Cameron. Next up, was the annual CPO golf tournament in which play ers were broken into teams of four. This is an opportunity for all hands to come together and play a good game on the golf course, said AWC Mike Ducker of Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 11. This week was meant to reward chiefs for all their hard work. A Feed the Troops event was held March 28 at the barracks, with CPOs serving the junior Sailors. Cornhole, a bounce house, DJ music and other activities were available during the lunch. We expect so much of our Sailors that it was really nice to stop and give back to them, said AOC Jeff Wainwright of Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 70. According to Wainwright, nearly 700 Sailors were fed at the lunch. The week finished off with the base CPOs gathering for colors at Building 1 March 29 and gathering for a group photo. Later that day, they marched in formation from the base outdoor pool to Deweys All Hands Club for lunch. During the march, passersby stopped and applauded the chiefs and took photos. Cameron who happened to be the youngest goat, along with NAS Jax Command Master Chief Jeffery Waters, used a cut lass to cut a birthday cake dur ing lunch. I have heard so many junior Sailors say this week, I am really impressed seeing all our chiefs come together, and thats what this is all about, said Waters. We are inspiring our next generation and Im so proud of all of you. For those interested in par ticipating in the virtual 5K and receiving a medal, contact Cameron by emailing: cpo Chief petty officers (CPOs) from Naval Air Station Jacksonville and tenant commands gather at the Building 1 flagpole to conduct morning colors in celebration of the CPO's 125th birthday week celebration March 29.

On April 1, the Navy celebrates the 125th birthday of the U.S. Navy chief petty officer. Since 1893, chiefs have been charged with leading the Navys Sailors, who are the best in the world and ready to carry out the mission whenever our nation calls. Green, a native of Bath, Maine, says her biggest joy in being an independent duty corps man is the hands-on aspect. As a chief corpsman, the only way to continue to provide patient care is to become an IDC. It gives me a unique opportunity to train aspiring health professionals in the field I love and watch their careers blos som before my eyes. Naval Air Station Jacksonville Executive Officer Capt.

6 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, April 5, 2018 NAVFAC Southeast Public Affairs Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded a nearly $12.5 million increase March 22 to a previously awarded task order for the stabilization and repairs due to Hurricane Irma with in the NAVFAC Southeast area of responsibility. This task order will be used for roof replacement, further stabilization of damaged facilities, mold reme diation and other construction related tasks resulting from Hurricane Irma at Naval Air Station (NAS) Key West, Florida. We continue to see improvements every day since Hurricane Irma, said NAS Key West Commanding Officer Capt. Bobby Baker. The base took a hit, but with the help of NAVFAC, we are operational and continue to train warfighters, just six months after the storm. URS Group, Inc. of Morrisville, North Carolina was contracted last fall to make repairs to Navy and Marine Corps facilities that were damaged in Florida and Georgia when Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida Sept. 9 and 10. After award of this modifica tion, the total cumulative task order value will be $36 million. Hurricane Irma left many building envelopes exposed by either a compromised roof or exterior clo sure. To date, the regional storm repair contract has addressed the damage to over 120,000 square feet of roof, 232 windows and 83 doors. The first objective for executing this contract was to ensure all building envelopes were secured prior to addressing interior spaces, said NAS Key West Public Works Officer Lt. Cmdr. Shawn Gorman. To date, roofing and interior repairs averaged about two months and two weeks respectively per facility. Upcoming critical work includes shoring and concrete repairs at hangar A936, constructing new Receiver and Transmitter facilities, and perimeter fence repairs. Work is expected to be completed by September 2018. NAVFAC Southeast awards increase to Hurricane Irma repair contract From the U.S. Navy Marksmanship Team Public Affairs The U.S. Navy Marksmanship Team (USNMT) recently announced this years match schedule for service rifle and service pistol competition. The Atlantic Fleet and All-Navy East matches will run May 5-17 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. After the All-Navy matches, the top 20 shooters Navywide for pistol and the top 20 for rifle are invited to represent the Navy at interservice and national matches where they compete against the best shooters from all military services. The interservice pistol match will be held at Fort Benning, Georgia, June 17-22. Interservice Rifle will be at MCB Quantico, from June 21-29. Like last year, national rifle match es will be held in two locations: Camp Perry, Ohio, and Camp Atterbury, Indiana. National pistol matches will be held at Camp Perry, Ohio. Our primary focus at the fleet match es has always been to introduce new shooters to disciplined marksmanship competition with service pistols and rifles, said Cmdr. Jon Marvell, USNMT officer in charge. We accomplish this with our Small Arms Firing School and our full match program. Last year, we added a .22 Excellence-in-Competition match to the Atlantic Fleet Match. This gave experienced shooters the oppor tunity to earn additional awards and it gave new shooters an opportunity to warm up with a low recoiling target pistol before the service pistol matches began. In recent years, Marvell continued, we have sought to incorporate more intermediate and advanced training for our more seasoned competitors. Last year, we had a breakout training ses sion with Lt. Keith Trapp, a member of the 2017 United States F-Class (Open) National Shooting Team, on wind read ing. We also had a clinic on service rifle positions conducted by Cmdr. (ret.) Matt Bartel who won the 2014 National Trophy-Individual for rifle at Camp Perry. We also have the support and pres ence of the Retired Navy Shooters Association (RNSA). This group sup ports our matches and provide an opportunity for face-to-face interaction with people who were champions before many of our new shooters were born, said Marvell. RNSA members are match officials and referees, some still shooting com petitively, still serving the Navy shoot ing community long after their military service has ended. The military is, and always will be, a profession of arms, said Marvell. While the big Navy focus will always be on ships, aircraft and big weapons platforms, we cannot forget small arms skills at the deckplate level, he con tinued. The RNSA involvement in our matches helps link new shooters to the long-standing tradition of small arms in the armed forces and the nation. All of these resources are available at no cost to the shooter or his command, but they are priceless it terms of improv ing marksmanship skills. 2018 will be our 57th annual Fleet Matches, Marvell said. Weve been doing this for a long time yet remain an unknown to so many in the Navy, he added. Please spread the word. Every year we have dozens of Sailors with no experience show up to safely learn about competitive marksmanship and the advanced techniques required to employ service-type rifles and pistols at or near maximum effective ranges. Even for those with no experience at all, they are welcome to join us and learn form the best in the Navy about safe and responsible small arms use, learn and practice advanced marksmanship in a safe and professional environment, and join a growing Navy shooting sports community. For more information, shooters can visit the team website, www.usnmt. org or the Facebook group U.S. Navy Marksmanship Team.

JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, April 5, 2018 7 By Yan Kennon Naval Hospital Jacksonville Public Affairs Senior Writer Both military and civilian communi ties recognize April as Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. For the Department of Defense, this years theme is Protecting Our People Protects Our Mission. According to the National Sexual Violence Research Center, nearly 1 in 5 women and 1 in 67 men report experi encing rape (sexual violence) at some time in their lives. Its everyones responsibility to com bat and eliminate sexual assault, said Capt. Matthew Case, Naval Hospital (NH) Jacksonville commanding officer. NH Jacksonville provides medical forensic exam services 24/7 at its hospi tal. The medical forensic exam incorpo rates the collection of potential forensic specimens into the medical exam pro cess. Specialized training is required for those that provide or assist with the exams. Service members and their adult military dependents who are victims of sexual assault have two reporting options: unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted cases are reported to both the command and law enforcement. Restricted (Confidential) reports allow adult victims access to healthcare, advocacy services, and legal services without notifying the command or law enforcement. Military retiree, DOD civilian and DOD con tractor victims currently may use only Unrestricted Reporting. Active bystander intervention can help prevent sexual assault. An active bystander identifies situa tions that might lead to a sexual assault, and then safely intervenes to prevent an assault from occurring. The three components to active bystander inter vention are: recognize when to inter vene, consider whether the situation needs attention, and decide if there is a responsibility to act. The Navy offers 24-hour response capability to victims of sexual assault regardless of location ashore, afloat, or deployed to ensure timely access to services. Anyone in immediate danger should call 911 (in the U.S.). For those who have experienced a sexual assault, call the 24/7 toll-free DOD Safe Helpline at 877-995-5247, NAS Jacksonville Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) at 904548-7789, Naval Station Mayport SARC at 904-548-8392, or your command SAPR victim advocate. Defense Switched Network (DSN) users can dial 94 plus the 10-digit tollfree number. Or, call 202-540-5962 or use the Safe Helpline APP (which offers Voice over IP technology). Sexual assault awareness, prevention and help Photo by Jacob Sippel Naval Hospital Jacksonvilles Lt. Cmdr. Kristina Polk, emergency medicine physician, and Terri Augspurger, sexual assault medical forensic exam program manager, discuss treatment for survi vors of sexual assault. April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM). DOD observes SAAPM by focusing on creating the appropriate culture to eliminate sexual assault and requiring a personal com mitment from all Service members at every level. NH Jax presents first DAISY Award Lt. j.g. Wesley Limberg, a registered nurse at Naval Hospital Jacksonvilles Labor and Delivery unit, asks Carolina Wilson questions about her pregnancy. Limberg (a native of Owensville, Missouri) earned the commands first DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. He has participated in 141 deliveries. The one-on-one care is something special to me. You get to be involved in their birth story; something theyll remember forever. Limberg received praise from numerous patients, including: "he built a personal connection and trust," "he took the time to explain everything they were doing and everything they were concerned about," and he is truly passionate about what he does and it shows." DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. Photo by Jacob Sippel

FFSC personnel (from left) Earl Goday, Jackie Viola and Deborah Bukolt put out the pinwheels, which is the national symbol for child abuse prevention. From Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs April is designated as the Month of the Military Child, underscoring the important role military chil dren play in the armed forces community. Sponsored by the Department of Defense (DoD) Military Community and Family Policy, the Month of the Military Child is a time to applaud military families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make and the challenges they overcome. The Month of the Military Child is part of the legacy left by former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger. He established the Defense Department commemo ration in 1986 to highlight the year-round contribu tions, courage and patriotism of the military commu nitys youngest members. Illustrating the importance of children, DoD created the Child Development Program offering childcare up to age 12. Similarly, youth development programs offer older children opportunities for recreation, and character, social and emotional development. In addition, the New Parents Support Program helps parents during pregnancy, childbirth, and until chil dren reach 3 years of age, to reach their full potential through home visitations and parent support groups. Military OneSource is another resource available 24/7, 365 days a year, to support parents to learn more about parenting skills, as well as to find support for themselves. Family support has evolved over the last 40 years to become the family readiness system, which is a col laborative network of agencies, programs, services and professionals who promote the readiness and quality of life of military families both on installations and in the community.

According to Gallet, the reason the team continues to be successful since its first MS ride in 2005 is because of the support VyStar Credit Union provides and the participation of military service members aboard NAS Jacksonville.
