Obey your conscience The time has changed; the sun is now shining more. Well, we live in Key West, so it never really stopped shin ing. But you get the drift spring has arrived. We are deep into the season of Lent and I hope each and every one of you is growing in your faith as we approach the Easter holiday. I have been thinking a lot lately about doing the right thing. There have been many times in my life that doing the wrong thing, or doing what someone else wanted, would have been much easier. It seems that this is a never ending process for me, and I assume it is with you as well. I want to encourage you to listen to your instinct. When something does not seem right, it likely is not. Often this is going to be taking a stand that may not be popular. If you do not take a stand it shows others your values. The Coast Guards core values are Honor, Respect and Devotion to Duty. The Navys core values are Honor, Courage and Commitment. These values are both similar and they have themes in them, clearly honor is a theme. In my last job I had a medical helicopter pilot tell me, as we were doing a check on something that had become redundant, Chaps, right is right 100 percent of the time. I know this stemmed from the fact that one mistake could cause a mishap that could easily cause loss of life, including mine. What he said stuck with me and almost daily I think about it. Right is right. We know what we need to do, when we need to do it and how to properly execute what needs to be done. When your integrity is challenged what are you doing? Are you doing what is right even when it hurts, even when you have to face a giant? When it may make you less popular? You may lose friends who want you to stretch the truth, to look the other way, to go with the flow. But what are you sacrificing? Are lives in danger? Are you living up to the core values of the service in which you are serving? If your faith is important to you, there are scriptures that offer guidance. When I think about what to do in a situation I compare and contrast to scripture. For me when I have to take a stand I think of James 4:17 says, So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. Right is right. If you are facing a mountain that seems huge, no matter what it is, chaplains are here to help. We listen and can provide a confidential sounding board. If you are in need of chaplain care, please call your chaplains at 305-293-2318, Naval Air Station Key West, or 305-7971211, Coast Guard Sector Key West. Visit our Facebook page Truman Chapel NAS Key West for upcoming events. I want to encourage you to join us for Easter sunrise service at 7 a.m. on Truman Beach. A second Easter service is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at the Sigsbee Park Community Center; it will be followed by a potluck and egg hunt for the children. COMMANDING OFFICER Capt. Bobby J.

5 to occur, such as co-worker relationships, awards and recognition, sexual harassment and sex discrimination, differential command behavior toward minorities, positive equal opportunity behaviors, racist behaviors, and religious, age and disability discrimination. DEOMI tabulates the information for a report that shows statistical data for each of the topics and demographics, he added. Once the report comes back, the commanding officer, command climate specialist and the command resilience team analyze the reports and come up with questions to ask focus groups made up of the installations Sailors and civilians. The team then attempts to determine, Is this something valid or one or two people just complaining? said Ocheltree This year, the command had ten focus groups that discussed their concerns and made recommendations for improvements. There are suggested topics for the groups to cover, but no issue is off limits for discussion, Ocheltree noted. During the focus group, command resilience team representative writes down anonymous statements and creates lists of what issues are troubling Sailors, as well as possible solutions. The list is then provided to CO for review. The surveys are administered in different ways to appeal to survey participants. Last year, Ocheltree said NAS Key West was the first command in the DOD that offered multiple language surveys; they were in Spanish, Creole and English. In addition to last years languages, surveys in French were introduced this year. The Defense Equal Opportunity Climate Survey is designed to provide the CO with an anonymous way for Sailors and civilians to give input on various issues throughout the command. That input allows the command team to know what issues need addressing. Areas needing improvement are targeted with detailed recommendations.This week at FFSC IA Spouse & Family GroupMonday, 8 9 a.m., FFSC Meet and catch up with other IA families in the area, and explore some of the unique challenges faced by IA families.

TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. However not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. Its a major cause of death and disability in the U.S., contributing to about 30 percent of all injury deaths each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Everyone is at risk for a TBI, especially children and older adults, said Cmdr. Duneley Rochino, Naval Branch Health Clinic Key West officer in charge. Know the signs and symptoms of TBI and seek proper care. Physical signs and symptoms of TBI include headache, fuzzy or blurry vision, nausea or vomiting (early on), dizziness, sensitivity to noise or light, balance problems, or feeling tired or having no energy. Some symptoms might appear right away, while others might not be noticed for days or months after injury. Children with a brain injury can have the same symptoms as adults, but its often harder for them to let others know. According to the CDC, about 75 percent of TBIs that occur each year are concussions or other forms of mild TBI. Repeated mild TBIs occurring over an extended period of time can result in cumulative neurological and cognitive deficits. Repeated mild TBIs occurring within short periods of time (hours, days, or weeks) can be catastrophic or fatal. Leading causes of TBI include falls, being hit by an object, and motor vehicle crashes. According to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center, active duty and reservists are at increased risk of sustaining a TBI compared to their civilian peers, as a result of several factors demographics (age), operational and training activities and deployment to areas that put service members at risk for experiencing blast exposures, such as improvised explosive devices, suicide bombers, and grenades. TBI is a serious condition. Individuals with suspected brain injuries should seek medical care immediately by contacting their Medical Home Port team to schedule an urgent care appointment, or for emergencies going to the emergency room or calling 911. NBHC Key West patients can be evaluated by Naval Hospital Jacksonvilles TBI screening program after receiving a consultation or referral from their Medical Home Port team.

The six are working toward becoming members of Naval Air Station Key Wests Auxiliary Security Forces. The three-week long Security Reaction Force Basic course begins with familiarizing Sailors with the effects of OC, and what to do if they are exposed to it during an encounter. The first week is made up of mechanical advantage control holds restraining techniques, the use of deadly force, proper use of the baton and the operation of OC spray. At the end of the week Sailors are sprayed and they complete obstacles, demonstrating verbal commands, take downs, baton strikes and defensive blocks. The second week consists of training on the 9mm pistol and the M16 rifle. The last week is a combination of tactical communication, team movement and closequarters combat.
7 in that it is enclaved within the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and is located within two of the four regions of the state designated as an Area of Critical State Concern Key West and Monroe County. The Navy owns more than 12 distinct properties in the Florida Keys, occupying 6,400 acres, with over 20 miles of shoreline, according to NAS Key West Environmental Division Director Edward Barham. The largest property, Boca Chica Field, is more than 60 percent undeveloped wetlands, which supports a wide variety of native flora and fauna. NAS Key West is unique because we have requirements most other bases dont because we are in the middle of a marine sanctuary, Barham said. Our whole airfield is an endangered species habi tat, he added. The NAS Key West Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan has identified 23 federally listed protected or endangered species on NAS Key West property, including 21 animals and two plants. The critically endangered Lower Keys marsh rabbit, for example, is endemic to the Lower Florida Keys. NAS Key West is home to 15 percent population of the total marsh rabbit habitat, but hosts more than 60 percent of the total population. Weve been applying for years. What made this package stand out was the airfield restoration project, said Barham. The Boca Chica Field Clear Zones and Drainage System Restoration, which cost more than $50 million, was completed after nearly a decade of planning and construction, The project opened up natural waterways that had been blocked decades earlier when runways were laid in preparation for WWII. The lagoons that formed supported the growth of mangroves. The project included removing several hundred acres of mangroves. To offset that loss, about 100,000 plants were planted to mitigate the mangroves that were removed. This is the biggest wetland project the Florida Keys will ever see, Barham noted at the time of projects completion in 2014. Today, we are seeing the results of mitigation, which takes a couple of years for vegetation to grow and survive, he said Thursday. NAS Key Wests Environmental Division consists of eight personnel who work to educate the public and base personnel on the installations, mission to protect, preserve and conserve our nature environment through proper stewardship of natural resources.
