The work to be per formed provides for design and construction for Hurricane Irma repairs to 28 facilities located at three sites at Naval Air Station (NAS) Key West (Boca Chica Key, Truman Annex, and Trumbo Point Annex). Its been almost one year since Hurricane Irma hit the Keys and we have come a long way in getting the air station back to nor mal operations, thanks to NAVFAC, said NAS Key West Commanding Officer Capt. Bobby Baker. The speed at which our facili ties have been restored and the plans for future restoration are both amaz ing and a testament to the hard work our facili ties managers put in every day. Hurricane Irma hit the Florida Keys in September 2017 as a Category 4 hur ricane, causing damage to the base, and repair and restoration efforts are still underway. The first phase of repairs began late September 2017. Phase one involved removal of drywall, car pet, ceiling tiles and other items damaged by water intrusion caused by roof damage during Hurricane Irma. Dehumidifiers and other techniques were used to dry out water dam aged areas and repairs were performed to prevent additional leaks and dam ages. Work being conducted during this second phase of repairs includes any and all ancillary and incidental mechanical and electrical support services needed to accomplish required work including, but not limited to, disconnects, tempo rary reconnects, removals, extensions, modifications, alterations, reinstalls, new components, and perma nent reconnects necessary for functional operation.

Guarding your heart J ohn MacArthur once said that True righteousness begins with a right rela tionship with God. MacArthur went on to give the example of a Roman soldier that was engaging his enemy in a handto-hand battle. The weapon of choice would be a short sword, that would penetrate his oppo nents vital organs. For the Roman soldiers own protection h would wear a molded metal breastplate that extended from the base of his neck to the top of his thighs. This breast plate would deflect any attacks aimed at his heart or abdo men. In Pauls scripture writ ing in Ephesians 6:14 he tells us to stand firm and put on the breastplate of righteousness. In order for us to be righteous we must have a right relation ship with God and put on the breastplate of protection from the enemy. Keeping unrigh teousness from penetrating our hearts. How do we do this is by applying Gods word in your own life each and every day. Psalm 119:11 says Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You. Helps us to understand the importance of staying in shape with Gods words. I hope you would not try to run a mara thon without training your body to endure that race, and I hope that you would not try to protect your heart by learn ing Gods word every once and awhile. So maybe today you can start focusing on strengthening your relationship with God. It is never too late. Please come and join us on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. this Sunday we will be at the Community Center on Sigsbee Annex for worship service with our Praise Band and Childrens Church.

Scott Mason CHAPLAIN'S CORNER September is Suicide Awareness Month BY MC1 BRIAN G. REYNOLDS Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs S ome decisions cant be reversed, can loom over loved ones like a dark thundercloud, and can have a devastating effect on the deci sion-makers, their families and the Navys culture. Last year, 75 Sailors made the irreversible decision to take their own lives. In the Southeast Region alone, there were 393 sui cide related behaviors, 58 suicide attempts and 18 suicide deaths. As a means to recognize the impact these decisions have made, Commander, Navy Region Southeast Rear Adm. Bette Bolivar signed a proclamation observing Suicide Awareness Month and continuing CNRSEs commitment to suicide preven tion. Naval Air Station Key West Commanding Officer Capt. Bobby Baker will sign a local proclamation Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. Every year, the Navy sets aside each September to empha size suicide prevention, but its a year-round effort. In our proclamation, we note that suicide prevention is not just a once a year or one-month thing, Southeast Regional Chaplain Capt. Daniel Stallard said. Its every Sailor, every day. That really is the important thing about prevention of any kind of destructive behavior. All Navy personnel are trained to intervene in the case of a ship mate displaying suicide related behavior. The Navy uses the acronym ACT (act, care, treat) to encourage Sailors to help save a life. The prevalence of suicide is a call to action, Stallard said. ACT is a nice device to help us think about asking the question, Are you thinking about suicide? We need to be direct. We need to be able to have the discussion, but we have to know the symp toms and signs of suicide. Then we care and, because we care, we ask. When we find out a ship mate or family member needs help, we take action. The proclamation encour ages loved ones, leaders, peers, friends and shipmates to exer cise ACT when a Sailor shows signs of distress. Each September, Navy Suicide Prevention Branch releases new resources to encourage Sailors to have the conversation regard ing suicide prevention, recognize the warning signs and motivate Sailors to make small ACTs to prevent suicide. This year, the branchs Every Sailor Everyday campaign will be introducing new educational material, as well as new tools and resources for gatekeepers, leaders, com mand resilience team members and families. see PREVENTION page 3

August 31, 2018 3 There is a stigma in the military that asking for help regarding suicide related behavior is a sign of weak ness. However, Stallard believes the contrary. The stigma of getting help for mental health prob lems is real, Stallard said. It looks like a sign of weak ness, but actually getting help is a sign of strength. Its a sign inside of you that you have the fortitude and attitude to ask for help. Not asking for help is really a weakness. This negative stigma sug gests that if a service mem ber reaches out for help, it could result in a loss of security clearance and/or have an adverse effect on their career goals. It will not affect your career as long as long as youre able to work, Stallard said. Your clear ance will not be in jeopardy. Your job will not be in jeop ardy as long as you didnt violate the uniform code of military justice. If someone reaches out and gets help, recovers and bounces back, there should be no effect on his or her career. Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John Richardson has launched an initiative called A Culture of Excellence. This initiative is an effort to pre vent the onset of destruc tive behaviors by mobilizing a multi-pronged approach to reinforce the Navys Warrior Ethos and objec tives of a: (1) Safe Navy, (2) Partner of Choice, and (3) a Most Lethal Force to any adversary. At the installation level, Commander, Naval Installation Command, Vice Adm. Mary Jackson has initiated a program called Strategizing and Collaborating on Prevention Efforts (SCOPE). This pro gram falls in line with the CNOs initiative in that it focuses on strengthening individuals -whether it be psychologically or physi cally -in order to prevent negative outcomes. Destructive behaviors continue to impact the Navys mission and have a devastating effect. Asking for help is not a career kill er. It is a sign of strength and resilience. I want to encourage people to look beyond the stigma and say, Hey, I need help, Stallard said.

The profes sional development offered through the program pre pares candidates for a smooth transition into meaningful civilian career. I recommend every one that is separating or retiring to do Hiring Our Heroes CFP, said ET2 Derrick Luzolo. It gives you the exposure you need to network and get on-thejob training as a civilian.

He plans to work for UPS as a manager in Atlanta when he separates in September. The fellowship features a 12-week syllabus, held three times a year at select military installa tions and in host cities around the country. Each cohort consists of 15 to 30 active duty service members, including veterans and mil itary spouses where avail able. Fellowship candidates are carefully matched with participating companies based on the specific skills of the candidate and the preferences of both parties. Candidates then undergo exclusive on-the-job train ing at their host company, gaining firsthand experi ence in the private sector. This knowledge is ampli fied with weekly education al sessions held as a cohort in a classroom setting. Im thankful for having the opportunity to do the program, noted Luzolo.
