NAS Pensacola Air Force personnel join Air Force special tactics marchers as they trek through downtown Pensacola on an 11-day, 824-mile memorial march for
comrades killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan.
USAF memorial marchers pass through Pensacola

More than 160 NAS Pensacola Air
Force personnel turned out in the middle of
the night for a show of solidarity with a
group of Airmen from Lackland AFB in
Texas, as they marched through Pensacola
on an 824-mile memorial march to
Hurlburt Field Oct. 15-16.
The memorial ruck sack march began
Oct. 6 to honor 12 fallen special tactics
teammates killed in action in Iraq and
Afghanistan. Six two-man teams of special
tactics Airmen relayed through five states,
marching 24 hours a day and carrying 50-
'They're feeling a lot of hurt feet right
now, because it's been a lot of long, tough
miles for them," said Senior Airman
Jonathon Donnelly, the support vehicle
driver, as he waited for the team to reach a
turn onto Palafox Street around 1:15 a.m.
"But everyone knows we're doing it for a
good cause. All the guys that we are doing
this memorial (march) for, someone here
has been friends with one of them."
In addition to the packs they carried was
a symbolic item that represented the cost of
freedom. "Each man is carrying a baton
engraved with the name of one of our fall-
en brothers," Donnelly said. "We're all
proud to do this for our co-workers and

The band, Dean Sams, Michael Britt and Keech
Rainwater, had great success with singer Richie McDonald
since forming 15 years ago. The band has achieved 10
number one songs, sold more than 10 million albums, and
been nominated for American County Music's Band of the
Year eight times. With Collins in tow now, the band is
preparing to release their first new album called "The
Future is Now" this spring. Collins said the band just fin-
ished the studio work and expects the first new single to
come out in January. He is excited about the project and
said the music "rocks with a really good edge."
The band is expected to play many of their classics like
"Front Porch Looking In," "Amazed," and "Already
There" but Collins stated the band will mix in a few newer
songs as well.
Playing in front of a military audience is something
special to Collins. He said that many of their songs speak
to the service members and their families due to the hard-
ships of separation they endure.

Navy Legal: Using trusts for minor, disabled children or for privacy
By Jeffrey Gott
Legal Assistance Attorney
Previously you heard that living
trusts are complex instruments that
require a lot of work to create and main-
tain if one wishes to achieve avoiding
probate, which is often the most com-
This article is intended to identify
some instances where trusts make a bit
These reasons include placing a
child's inheritance under the control of a
responsible adult until the child reaches
an age older than 18; benefiting a dis-
abled child without jeopardizing their
entitlement to public benefits; transfer-
ring real estate located in different
states; and achieving privacy with
regard to the final disposition of one's
When minor children receive proper-
ty in their own name, such as money
from a life insurance policy, that money
does not go directly to the children to do
with as they please but instead is placed
with their guardian.
Subsequently, a guardian's control
will end sometime when the minor child
reaches an age between 18 and 21. The
exact age depends on state law.
A trust can take the place of this
arrangement such that a child must wait
until an age of your choosing before
they receive their money. Many times
this is age 25 or some other arrangement
whereby the child will receive one-third
at age 25, one-third at age 30 and the
remaining balance at age 35.
Also, if the likely guardian of your
minor child is an individual you are not
comfortable with controlling your
child's inheritance, for example, an ex-
spouse, placing the assets in trust allows
you to name a trustee of your choosing.
Another instance when a trust is rec-
ommended is to provide for disabled
adult children who receive
Generally, public benefits such as
Medicaid and Social Security Disability
are subject to a means test, for example
applicants only receive the benefit if
they receive minimal income and own
little or no assets.
In such cases if disabled children on
Medicaid get an inheritance they are
then disqualified from receiving the
Disabled children would have to use
the inheritance to pay for expenses pre-
viously covered by the public benefit
until they then re-qualified, presumably
when the inheritance was exhausted.
This can be avoided with a special
needs trust which puts the inheritance
with a trustee who is only to spend the
money to supplement the public benefits
and not take its place.
A trust is also advisable where one
owns real property in different states. In
most states the law maintains that real
estate whose owner is deceased must go
Thus, someone living in Florida who
also owns property in Alabama could be
faced with two probates, one in each
state. If, however, the Alabama real
estate was placed in a trust then a sec-
ond probate could be avoided.
Lastly, administering a trust tends to
be a more private operation than open-
ing a probate at the local courthouse.
Court cases are, for the most part,
public records. Therefore, if privacy is a
paramount concern a trust can be useful.
Creating a stand-alone trust is gener-
ally beyond the scope of a military legal
Our attorneys are normally limited to
putting simple trusts in a last will and
testament. Discussing these issues with
a legal assistance attorney is always a
good place to start. At Naval Air Station
Pensacola, a legal assistance attorney
can be reached at 452-3734.

Fourth in a series of fire prevention articles during October National Fire Prevention Month
Dormitories: are they fire safe?
From Inspector Donald Harris
Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast
Dormitories today are as fire safe as man can
make them, they are fitted with installed sprin-
kler systems, hood suppression systems and
smoke detectors; the exits are clearly marked and well-lit.
With all these safety precautions in
place, if we ignore general safety and
common sense requirements we can still
find ourselves in danger of loss of life or
severe injury; let's call this the "people
One of the leading causes of fires in
dormitories or combined bachelor's quar-
ters (CBQs) is unattended cooking.
People get distracted or are tired, forget-
ting what they have started with the results
possibly being a fire. Smoking, candle use
or other open-flame devices are prohibit-
ed for use in the dormitories and CBQs on
our installations. If personnel ignore the
rules, devastating results can happen.
We remind personnel not to ignore
smoke detectors or fire alarms sounding,
personnel that delay in their evacuation
can find themselves in smoke which can
lead to being disoriented or overcome
resulting in serious injury or loss of life.
The practice of fire safety is everyone's
responsibility, especially the students.
Every fire safety rule needs to be followed
and when these rules are disregarded the
probability of fire increases. Fires do not
start on their own, people start fires, the
Smoking, candle use and other open-
flame devices are prohibited in base dor-
mitories and CBQs for good reason.
Listed below are some safety precau-
tions for personnel living in the dormito-
ries or CBQs to observe:
Review the posted building evacua-
tion plan and know two ways out.
Know 452-3333 as the local emer-
gency reporting number.
Ensure they don't tamper with the
installed smoke detectors.
Ensure they don't hang any items
from the sprinkler heads.
Inspect their room for fire hazards,
such as electrical cords/outlets and clutter.
Check exit doors and windows;
ensure they will open properly.
Know their building, floor and room
Respond to fire alarms at all times and
utilize the nearest and safest exit.
Insure students know how to properly
use heating equipment and base-provided
cooking appliances. Unplug all heat pro-
ducing devices when not in use.
Know the location of fire alarm pull
stations and fire extinguishers and be
familiar with their use.
Fire safety and prevention is really
using your common sense. Public fire
safety awareness is a key to preventing
fires and we all must promote fire safety
and prevention with all personnel.
Instructors and supervisors must be proac-
tive in support of fire safety. Be fire safe
and let's overcome the "people factor."
From NAVFAC Southeast
Navy Secretary Ray Mabus recently outlined five
ambitious goals for decreasing reliance on petroleum
and curbing greenhouse gas emissions.
"Energy reform is a strategic initiative and the stakes
are very high," Mabus told Navy and Marine Corps offi-
cials and defense contractors attending the Naval Energy
Forum in Northern Virginia. "We simply rely too much
on a declining stock of fossil fuels that most likely will
continue to rise in cost over the next decade."
In an effort to shift that reliance on fossil fuel, Mabus
said he will direct the Navy and Marine Corps to begin
weighing the life-cycle energy costs associated with all
acquisitions when making contract awards.
"The lifetime energy costs of building a system and
the fully burdened cost of fuel of empowering those
(weapons systems) will be a mandatory evaluation factor
used in awarding contracts," Mabus said. "We're going
to hold industry contractually accountable for meeting
energy targets and system efficiency requirements."
The department also will consider contractors' overall
energy efficiency as a factor in making acquisition deci-
sions. "We want industry to take steps to not just provide
us with energy-efficient products, but to produce those
products in energy efficient ways," he said.
In addition to adjusting its approach to acquisition, the
Navy by 2012 will establish a "green strike group" of
fuel-efficient ships, with some running on biofuels. By
2016, that strike group will deploy as a "green fleet com-
posed of nuclear-powered ships, surface combatants
equipped with hybrid-electric alternative power systems
running biofuel and aircraft flying only biofuels," he said.
Other goals outlined by the secretary include:
By 2015, the Navy will cut in half the petroleum
consumption of its 50,000-vehicle fleet. As vehicles
go out of service, they will be replaced with flex-
fuel, hybrid and electric vehicles. "Moving to biofu-
els and electric vehicles will benefit the local com-
munities where bases are located and will spur the
adoption of similar vehicles (locally)," Mabus said.
By 2020, the Navy will produce at least half of
its shore-based energy from alternative sources, with
the goal of returning power to the electric grid wher-
By 2020, the Navy will ensure that 50 percent of
the total energy consumed by ships, aircraft, vehicles
and shore facilities is supplied through alternative
and renewable sources. Today that figure is 17 per-
None of the goals will require legislative action,
Mabus said. He cited advances in biofuels and recent
improvements in engine efficiency for both ships and
aircraft as evidence they are reachable.
"No one has ever gotten anything big done by
being timid," he said.

Naval photographers return to Pensacola next week for reunion
By Art Giberson
Special to Gosport
Navy and Marine Corps photographers
from across the nation will come home to
Pensacola Oct. 26-29 for the annual
National Association of Naval
The reunion will be held at the
Hampton Inn, 2 Via de Luna Drive,
Naval photography, like naval aviation,
had been a part of the Pensacola landscape
since 1914 when Lt. Cmdr. Henry C.
Mustin steamed into Pensacola Bay
aboard the battleship USS Mississippi
with orders to establish the Navy's first
aeronautic station and flying school.
Among the ship's crew was ship's
cook and amateur photographer Walter
Dropping anchor a few hundred yards
off shore from what is now the Pensacola
Naval Air Station, Mustin and a handful
of crew members scanned the debris-lit-
tered shoreline while Richardson snapped
Over the next few weeks, while Sailors
from the Mississippi labored to turn the
abandoned Navy shipyard into some
resemblance of a naval station,
Richardson labored equally hard to keep
them fed and during his off-duty hours
documented their flying activities.
His photographs, particularly those of
accidents, quickly caught Mustin's atten-
tion and Richardson was permanently
assigned to the aeronautic station as an
Four years later Richardson was given
a commission and dispatched to Miami to
establish the Navy's first photo school.
In 1921 photography became an offi-
cial naval occupational specialty. In 1923
the Naval School of Photography came
home to Pensacola.
For the next three quarters of a century
Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen
entering the naval specialty of photogra-
phy received their basic and advanced
training in Pensacola.
In 1995 the Naval School of
Photography became a Department of
Defense Photographic School.
By 1998 it had become clear that train-
ing facilities at NAS Pensacola were inad-
equate to meet department of defense
requirements, thus forcing a move to a
new DoD mass communications training
facility at Fort Meade, Md.
Reunion information is available from
Robert Devore at 455-3907 or through e-
mail at email@example.com.
Giberson can be reached at 455-5931
or through e-mail at
The Naval School of Photography moved into Bldg. 1500 aboard the NAS
Pensacola Naval Air Station in 1950 and eventually became known throughout the
naval service as "The mecca of naval photography." The building still exists near
Fort Barrancas. It is slated to become the NAS command headquarters in 2011.

Now easier for some spouses to be hired by federal government
By George Markfelder
Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy
WASHINGTON (NNS)- It is now easier for certain
spouses of active-duty Sailors and Marines to be hired by
the federal government.
New Department of Defense hiring authorities took
effect this fall, and the Office of Personal Management
(OPM) issued final regulatory guidelines in the Federal
Register under the title, "Noncompetitive Appointment of
Certain Military Spouses."
"This is a super opportunity for certain spouses of
active-duty military members to serve their country direct-
ly, and to begin a great career with worldwide assignment
opportunities," said Shirley Scott, director of Human
WE SERVICE ALL MAKES AND MODELS
AnaotwAioa Shop You Can l unt
11225 Lon Hwy. Pensco R 32506
Resources Policy and Program Department at the DoN
Office of Civilian Human Resources. "Federal jobs come
with large benefits, such as tuition reimbursement, leave
and holidays, and dependent care to name just a few."
Scott explained that the eligibility for this noncompeti-
tive hiring authority falls into four major categories: (1) a
spouse of an U.S. armed forces service member serving on
active duty (not for training) for more than 180 days, pro-
vided the spouse relocates to the member's new permanent
duty station; (2) a spouse of a military service member
who is retired from active duty with a documented service-
connected disability rating of 100 percent; (3) a spouse of
a military service member who retired, was released or dis-
charged from active duty and has a disability rating of 100
percent as documented by the Department of Veterans
Affairs; or (4) a spouse of a military service member killed
while on active duty.
In the latter case, the spouse must be the un-married
widow/widower of the deceased service member to meet
"Of course the intent of these regulations is to make it
easier for the federal government to recruit and retain
skilled and experienced employees," said Scott, "but also,
when service members have a permanent change of sta-
tion and the family moves, the spouse is typically forced to
find a new employer at that new location.
Allowing military spouses to at least compete for jobs
that would otherwise only be open to current civilians or
veterans provides us, the employer, with a greater pool of
potential candidates. It is a win-win for us all."

allow us to achieve our
dreams. As Americans, we
possess a range of vocation-

most of our talents and suc-

government and its contrac-
tors can lead the way by

ers achieve their full poten-
Recognizing the need for
equal employment opportu-
nities, we must also strength-
en and expand the educa-
tional opportunities for indi-
viduals with disabilities. If
we are to build a world free
from unnecessary barriers,
stereotypes, and discrimina-

every American receives an
education that prepares him

Each day, Americans
with disabilities play a criti-
cal role in forging and shap-

October 2009, as National

all Americans to celebrate
the contributions of individ-

'Expectation + opportunity = full participation'
Employment Awareness Month
From U.S. Department of Labor
Office of Public Affairs
O ctober is
Month (NDEAM), and
October marks the 62nd
year that our country cele-
opportunities for people
The U.S. Department of Labor recently
announced "Expectation + Opportunity Full
Participation" as the official theme for
October's National Disability Employment
Awareness Month. It is intended to urge
employers, as they seek to fill positions, to
embrace the richness of America's diversity by
considering the talents of all workers, including
workers with disabilities.
"People with disabilities must be woven into
our work culture," said Assistant Secretary of
Labor for Disability Employment Kathy
Martinez. "Already, we benefit from the
incredible array of talent they bring to our
workplaces. But we must raise the bar, we
must create the inexorable expectation that
people with disabilities will contribute in every
way to our economic successes.
"Only by nurturing this expectation and pro-
viding people with disabilities with unlimited
employment opportunities, can we all benefit
from their talents."
This year's theme emphasizes the vision of
the Labor Department's Office of Disability
Employment Policy (ODEP): a world in which
people with disabilities have unlimited
employment opportunities. Early selection of
an annual theme for upcoming National
Disability Employment Awareness Month
helps the private sector; federal, state and local
the artwork of
Kristi, and the
governments; and advocacy organizations plan
events and programs that showcase the abilities
and skills of job seekers and working
Americans who have disabilities.
ODEP is the nation's first assistant secre-
tary-led office that addresses policies that
impact upon the employment of people with
disabilities. The office provides national lead-
ership on disability employment policy by
developing and influencing the use of evi-
dence-based disability employment policies
and practices, building collaborative partner-
ships, and delivering authoritative and credible
data on the employment of people with disabil-
As background for National Disability
Employment Awareness Month, Public Law
176, enacted by Congress in 1945, designated
the first week in October as "National Employ
the Physically Handicapped Week." President
Harry S. Truman designated the (now former)
President's Committee on Employment of
People with Disabilities to carry out the law.
Congress changed the name to "National
Disability Employment Awareness Month" in
1988. The responsibility for leading the nation-
wide recognition was transferred to the newly
created ODEP in 2001.
Drawing inspiration from disability
(NAPS) Increasingly, indi-
viduals with a physical disability
are redefining what it means to be
According to the American
Disability Act (ADA), about 43
million Americans are living with
at least one disability, and most
Americans will experience a dis-
ability at some time during the
course of their lives. For some,
that experience can be such that it
changes the direction of their life
Take for example, Californian
artist Dennis Francesconi, who,
as a result of a skiing accident at
age 17, broke his neck and
became a wheelchair-bound
Eventually, he began to draw
by gripping a pencil between his
teeth. In time, and with the sup-
port of his wife, Kristi, his skills
as an artist blossomed. Later, he
was introduced to the U.S.
Mouth and Foot Painting Artists
(MFPA), a for-profit organization
run by disabled artists seeking
financial independence, formed
nearly 50 years ago.
Said Francesconi, "One of the
proudest moments of my life was
when I was promoted by the
MFPA to be a full member artist
and I was able to tell the Social
Security officer that I didn't need
the monthly benefits check any
Each year in October, artists
such as Francesconi and those
from other walks of life draw
attention to the valuable contribu-
tion that the physically disabled
bring to society during National
Disability Awareness Month. To

Lt. Paul Jimenez Lt. j.g. Jessica Cousins
deployed personnel enabling optimum
return to duty.
The Internal Medicine specialist's
"enthusiastic teaching of corps staff
directly contributed to improving the
overall medical readiness of the EMF-
K command," wrote Capt. E.C.
Wagner, commanding officer.
Ltj.g. Cousins served her deploy-
ment at the Kuwait-based command as
departmental safety officer. She con-
ducted a thorough review of the inpa-

The Nurse Corps officer also con-
ducted multiple in-services on both
patient and staff safety resulting in zero
mishaps on the inpatient ward.
HM3 Matthews served as a staff duty
corpsman with the Warrior Return Unit
of EMF-Kuwait. She dedicated more
than 130 hours as patient escort for
host-nation medical appointments that
enhanced expeditious patient treatment
of more than 900 coalition forces.

customer satisfaction rate.
HM3 Joseph Almeida served as a
general duty corpsman with EMF-K's

NATTC Sailors support
area Special Olympics
by AT1 Joshua Stuart
NATTC Public Affairs
Every year, Special Olympics Florida
organizes multiple athletic events span-
ning the entire year. More than 1,000
athletes compete in the November state
"Fall Classic" event. However, before
athletes can compete in this state level
event, they must first qualify at region-
al and area level events.
This year the area Fall Classic event
for Northwest Florida was held on Sept.
26 at Liberty Lanes of Pensacola. More
than 200 Special Olympic athletes from
Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and
Walton counties were in attendance.
Seventy-four volunteers from Naval Air
Technical Training Center (NATTC)
joined other volunteer organizations to
help make this Fall Classics event one
The event began with checking in
contestants by lane assignments and
shifts. The opening ceremony began
with the Special Olympics oath, "Let
me win, but if I cannot win, let me be
brave in the attempt."
"The enthusiasm of the athletes is
contagious," commented one Navy par-
ticipant. "It's nice to be part of this great
event in our community. The intangible
feelings that I'll take away from this
experience will last a lifetime."
The first shift of bowlers was then
allowed a five-minute warm-up period
followed by a full three games. More
than 50 area and NATTC volunteers
assisted with the 32 lanes to ensure
games were orderly and to provide
encouragement for contestants. After
the first shift was finished with their
three games, a free lunch of sloppyjoes,
chips, and refreshments was provided.
After lunch, each second shift bowler
was assigned a lane and began bowling
their three games.
In addition to the day's bowling com-
petition, an "Olympic Village" enter-
tained off-shift contestants while they
were waiting their turn to bowl. In the
"Liberty Village," 15 NATTC staff vol-
unteers coordinated arts and craft activ-
ities and ran carnival type games for
After both bowling shifts had com-
pleted their allotted three games, overall
scores were tallied by a team of volun-
teers who averaged all game scores.
First through fourth place ribbons were
then distributed to individual bowlers.
Teams were also awarded ribbons based
on their average team scores.
All winning athletes from this year's
area fall classics will soon compete at
the November state-level event in
Navy Exchange's World Wide Beatles Rock Band Competition ... On

Navy raises awareness of domestic violence
From Navy Installations Command Public
WASHINGTON (NNS) During
October, Domestic Violence Awareness
Month, the Navy is working to raise
awareness of options for reporting domes-
tic violence, as well as means to prevent it.
People in healthy relationships feel sup-
ported and safe. In unhealthy relation-
ships, partners often feel unsafe, fearful,
confused and helpless.
If you recognize that your partner has
already crossed the line and you have you
have been physically or emotionally
abused, there is help. The help comes by
first reporting the abuse.
There are two types of reporting
options, restricted and unrestricted.
Restricted reports do not involve military
chain of command or law enforcement.
Unrestricted reports will include some
type of investigation by command and or
law enforcement. Both options make
available to victims the full range of advo-
cacy, medical and counseling services.
"Many people are unaware that the
restricted reporting option even exists,"
said Kathy Turner, of the Fleet and Family
Support Program's Counseling Advocacy
and Prevention Program.
Restricted reporting has been available
since 2006. It gives victims time and
opportunity to get information and profes-
sional advice about their rights and avail-
able services so they can make informed
Often victims initially choose the
restricted reporting option and later decide
that they want the chain of command noti-
fied so that the offender can be held
The victim can elect to change a
restricted report to an unrestricted report.
But an unrestricted report cannot be later
changed to a restricted report.
Often, victims of abuse are isolated and
only hear information from their abusive
partners. They may not know their support
options and may believe that if they ask
for help it will end the military career.
It's especially important for victims to
know about the restricted reporting
option," Turner said. "This option allows
people to control how much help and serv-
ices they receive. People can call their
local FFSC anonymously to learn more
about restricted reporting."
The option to make a restricted report is
available to active-duty service members
and their spouses. Intimate partners of
active-duty service members who realize
that they are being abused are also urged
to contact the Fleet and Family Support
Center to learn more about restricted
Many victims of abuse might feel com-
fortable talking with their health-care
provider but fear that the chain of com-
mand and/or law enforcement would be
"Under the restricted reporting option,
adult victims may speak to a health-care
professional at a military medical facility,"
said Turner. "But it is important that they
be direct and ask up front about restricted
The health-care provider will provide
needed medical care and get them in touch
with a victim advocate at the Fleet and
Family Support Center. Restricted reports
can also be made directly to the victim
advocates or their clinical supervisors at
the Fleet and Family Support Center.
Domestic violence cuts across all age
groups and social classes. It happens to
Sailors as well as spouses. It happens to
men as well as women.
Domestic violence also goes beyond
physical abuse. It includes emotional
abuse such as threats, isolation, extreme
jealousy and humiliation. It also includes
If you think you may be a victim of
domestic violence, contact the National
Domestic Violence Hotline at 1 (800) 799-
SAFE or visit your installation Fleet and
Family Support Center for information on
available resources. AT NASP that num-
ber is 452-5990.

said IT Roy Daniels, a member of the NASP MWR
committee that's organizing the event.
"We're trying to put it more toward the NATTC
folks and an older crowd," Daniels said. "It's going
to be scary and probably not all that appropriate for
your 4-year-old or 5-year-old."
The hallways on both floors will be used as part
of the haunted house. There will be scary music to
go along with the props.
Although Daniels is keeping some of the details
close to the vest, he did hint there will be lots of
gore. "It's going to be a little intense for younger
viewers," he said.
It's the first time Bldg. 624 has been turned into
a haunted house as part of the fundraiser for the
base command's Christmas party, Daniels said. "It
was something a lot of people could be involved in
here and have some enjoyment," he said, about 25
people will be involved.
Other events on the base include:
