"The first half of deployment we went
through the Panama Canal," saidEnsignMolly
Harris, the ordinance officer aboard Roberts.
"We were operating in the Eastern Pacific,
which was really exciting. We made portvisits
in Panama City, and after that we came back
throughthe canal. Since Decemberwe'vebeen
operating off of the Honduran Rise and also
a little bit further south than that doing CNT
missions," she said.
"We made port visits in Roatan Hondu
ras," said Harris. "We did a lot of community
relations there, helped paint a school, played a
soccer game against the HonduranNavy and we
hosted the Honduran Navy aboard," she said.

What is SAVI?
The Sexual Assault V lf on
program is a comprehesiv, ctii i-
tive program that pilI the pieces a oet cer
- victim advocacy, awareness. pe sentio
education, and data collection- to respond
to sexual assault Navy-wide. SAVI services
are available to all sailors and their families,
regardless of whether the sexual assault took
place on or off base.
The primary focus of the SAVI program
is to promote aggressive, proactive aware-
ness and prevention education, including
information on the prevention of sexual
assault; actions that can help minimize risk;
procedures for command response; and
measures that bases and command can take
to ensure a safe environment for sailors and
The SAVI program includes a volunteer
system of committed victim advocates, who
are trained to be "crisis respondents" and
coordinate with local and civilian organiza-
tions to make sure that sexual assault victims
receive appropriate medical, legal and emo-
tional care. Advocates are male and female,
civilian and military personnel. Advocates
provide a variety of support services-from
bringing a victim a change of clothes at the
hospital to providing emotional support dur-
ing legal proceedings.
The final component of SAVI is a system
of data collection used to establish an accu-
rate report of sexual assault in the Navy.
Restricted Vs Unrestricted Reporting of
a Sexual Assault
Confidentiality represents the most signif-
icant single change in sexual assault policy
and it addresses a major barrier to reporting.
Many victims are not emotionally prepared
for criminal investigation due to fear, embar-
rassment, shame and a sense of violation
that may follow an assault. Previous policy
of automatic and immediate initiation of
law enforcement action often deterred the
victims from stepping forward.
Confidentiality takes direct aim at this
barrier by providing victims two reporting
ons: Restricted and Unrestricted report-
ireporting allows the victims
to rec medical treatment and support
withoutt automatically triggering a criminal
in e sti tion.
To iake a restricted report:
1. Call or talk with a Victim Advocate,
Health care provider, chaplain, mental health
provider or Sexual Assault Response Coor-
2. If the assault has just occurred, go di-
rectly to the Emergency Room for treatment
and the providers will assist you.
3. With a Victim Advocate, complete the
Victim's Preference Statement. This gives
you the opportunity to obtain counseling
and on-going medical care, and have up to
a year to change your reporting preference
4. Do not inform any military member
or your command if you desire restricted
Victims who desire treatment and/or sup-
port, as well as an investigation can select
unrestricted reporting. This option ensures
that in addition to providing medical treat-
ment, advocacy, and counseling for victims
of sexual assault, command authorities
are notified and a criminal investigation is

and water damage was extensive throughout the home creating a high dollar property loss.
Please remember to practice good fire safety habits. The life you save may be your own! If
you have any questions, please feel free to contact Fire Prevention at 4178 or 4179.
