Night out for NSA PC


Engineman 2nd Class William Nesbit hands out coloring books to children at National Night Out
Against Crime in Panama City Fla.


STORY AND PHOTOS BY MASS
COMMUNICATION SPECIALIST
2ND CLASS DAVID DIDIER

Naval Support Activity
Panama City along
with the Panama City
Police Department and the Bay
County Sheriff's Office hosted
the 26th annual National Night
Out Against Crime on August 4th
in the parking lot of the Panama
City Mall.
National Night Out Against
Crime is a nationwide crime
and drug prevention program
that promotes neighborhood
spirit as well as partnerships
between the community and law
enforcement.
"I did this last year and I think
it's a good thing," said Engine-


man 2nd Class Christopher Diaz.
"The fact that it could reduce ca-
sualties or kids being abducted,
it's good to make people aware
of these things."
Several local law enforce-
ment agencies and businesses
participated at this year's event,
which was free and open to the
public. Activities included child
ID kits, K-9 demonstrations, a
live alligator, moon walks, face
painting. Kids and families col-
lected a variety of educational
coloring books, crime preven-
tion information, and free hot-
dogs, popcorn and drinks.
"Navy-wise we handed out
flyers, did some face painting
and gave balloons to the kids and
their parents to make them aware
of general safety, like traveling


safety, bicycle safety, safety for
cars," said Diaz. "For the parents
we gave out pamphlets on how
to properly strap in car seats for
kids."
Parents took the opportunity
to thank military members for
their service.
"I had several kids come up to
me and ask me questions about
the Navy," said Diaz. "What I
did in the Navy, how the Navy
works, do I enjoy the Navy. A
lot of parents just came up and
shook our hands, thanking us for
being in the Navy and serving
in the Military. It made me feel
wonderful...it makes me love
my job and makes me proud to
be in the Navy."

Goodbye

USS Sentry

USS Sentry departed NSAPC
for what may be the final time
on August 8.
It was as if the ship departed
like it has many times before. No
large crowds of people waving,
no tears from the eyes of loved
ones, just another departure
like any other after working
with Naval Surface Warfare
Center Panama City division
on reasearch and development
efforts here.
While in Panama City, Sen-
try's crew made a positive im-
pact by participating in commu-
nity relations projects here.
USS Sentry and her crew
will soon be transferred from
Ingleside Tx. to the west coast
where they will continue their
mission of protecting the world's
harbors and shipping lanes from
the actions of the few to control
the many.
Farewell USS Sentry. Stand
your post well and protect us
from those who wish us harm.
Fair winds and following seas.

Sailors encouraged to participate in study on sexual assault


STORY BY BRUCE MOODY
The Navy encourag-
es active-duty Sail-
ors to participate in
a sexual assault study to as-
sess the effectiveness of the
Navy's Sexual Assault Victim
Intervention (SAVI) program.
The Office of the Naval
Inspector General (IG) is con-
ducting the survey, which is
available at www.ig.navy.mil/
sastudy.htm. The survey was
designed for active-duty per-
sonnel, is confidential, anony-
mous, and will be available for
participation through Sept. 30.
Naval IG teams are also
visiting installations around
the fleet through the end of
September. As part of the visits,
they are facilitating focus group


discussions to gain more insight
from a fleet perspective, about
the occurrences and command
support during incidences of
sexual assault. Each focus group
will be composed of a cross-
section of personnel and consist
of approximately 20 people
from various rank categories.
The Navy's SAVI Program is
managed by Commander, Navy
Installations Command's Fleet
and Family Support Program.
The Fleet and Family Sup-
port Program manages a wide
variety of programs, including
SAVI. These programs enhance
Sailor readiness and family
preparedness, directly contrib-
uting to mission readiness.
The Navy is the first of
the armed service to have a
dedicated program for sexual


assault awareness, prevention,
and intervention. Established in
1994, the program has recently
shifted more focus toward pre-
vention and is incorporating new
initiatives based on civilian best
practices and recent research.
"Sexual assault is a crime
and will not be tolerated," said
Paul Finch, SAVI's program
manager. "It is a criminal act,
incompatible with the Navy's
core values; it dramatically af-
fects morale and operational
readiness. Senior leadership is
committed to an effective and
responsive SAVI program in or-
der to ensure prevention, quality
victim care and response and to
holding offenders accountable."
In working toward this com-
mitment, the Navy is sustaining
a robust sexual assault preven-


tion and response policy, iden-
tifying and eliminating barriers
to reporting, ensuring that care
is available and accessible to
victims of sexual assault, and
providing continuous, relevant,
and effective training and edu-
cation to all service members.
All Navy commands have a
24/7 sexual assault response
capability focused on victim
support. Commanders ensure
that female and male sexual
assault victims (or survivors)
have access to the assistance
and resources to meet their
needs and to provide a safe and
professional work environment.

Letter from the Editor:

New plans for Coastal Courier


Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class David Didier


Hello, my name is Mass
Communication Spe-
cialist (MC) 2nd Class
David Didier. I am the new
Editor of the Coastal Courier. I
wanted to take this opportunity
to introduce myself to you, the
readers, and to provide you with
a little history of my career.
I have not always been an
MC. I started my Navy Career
as an undesignated Fireman in
the main spaces of USS Pearl
Harbor (LSD 52) in Sept. of
2001. After a little over two
years of turning wrenches I re-
quested to become a Photogra-
phers Mate (PH) and attended
the Basic Still Photography
course at Defense Information
School.
From there I moved on to
"The War Eagles" of VP-16
out of Jacksonville Fla. I spent
nearly three years there until I
was stationed in Sasebo, Japan
with Fleet Public Affairs Cen-
ter, Det. Japan.
After a little over two years
in the land of the rising sun, I
received orders to return to Fla.


and be stationed here. While in
route, I attended the Intermedi-
ate Photojournalism Course
at DINFOS where I learned a
great deal on Photojournalism,
news layout and design from
some of the best instructors in
the industry.
Now that I am here in
beautiful Panama City I have
a lot of great ideas for this
paper. Please feel free to let
me know the things you like
or dislike about the paper. I am
also interested in taking new
steps toward social media and
multi-media packages. These
are new to the Navy but have
proven to be very beneficial
when placed in the right hands
for large companies.
Thank you for your time
and I look forward to provid-
ing you with your news for the
next four years.

Liasion Officer links NSA PC to local schools


Naval Support Activity Panama City, Fla. School Liaison Officer
Lynda Kent will help to empower parents to be their child's best
advocate in the education process.


STORY BY LYNDA KENT
On average the military
child will move every
three years and attend
nine different schools from
grades K-12.
This means a lot of good-byes
and a lot of stress in adjusting
to new environments. It also
means difficulties in transition-
ing from one school system
to another, usually to another
state or sometimes to another
country.


To offer help with these is-
sues, Naval Support Activity
Panama City now has a School
Liaison Officer under its Navy
Child & Youth Program.
Lynda Kent comes to NSA
PC from Lake County in Central
Florida where she previously
worked in public schools. Her
experience in education includes
working both as a teacher and
as a school administrator in
all three levels of elementary,
middle, and high schools. Kent
earned a Bachelor of Science


degree in Education from the
University of Central Florida
and a Master of Science degree
in Educational Leadership from
NOVA Southeastern Univer-
sity.
As the Navy School Liaison
Officer (SLO) at NSAPC, Kent
is able to draw upon her educa-
tional background to serve the
military families. School Liaison
Officers seek to "level the play-
ing field" for military students
by ensuring that they are given
the opportunities to achieve their
highest potential at any assigned
location. Part of that help is
ensuring that proper credits
transfer as the military students
move from one state system into
another where different curricula
may be taught and graduation
requirements often differ.
The goal of the SLO is to em-
power parents to be their child's
best advocate in the education
process. A Navy SLO serves
as the focal point of contact be-
tween military families, the local
school administration, and the
military installation Command.
One of their primary responsibil-
ities is to help parents navigate
the school system, facilitating in
the permanent change of station


Upcoming Events


(PCS) process as families move
from base to base and school to
school. The SLO also serves as a
resource of pertinent educational
information and offers train-
ing to families and schools on
educational and military issues,
needs, and areas of interest.
"It is both a privilege and an
honor to serve our military fami-
lies in matters pertaining to the
education of military dependent
children," said Kent. "Through
the lives of my own kids who are
serving in the Army, I see first-
hand the difficulties that families
face in military life, especially
the children. Yet, the children
willingly make the sacrifices
with determination out of great
love for their military parents
and their country. They deserve
our best efforts and support."
Kent's office is located in the
Seashore Chapel and she can be
reached by email at lynda.kent@
navy.mil or on her cell phone at
(850) 774-7976.

explained Catherine Lancaster,
Community Manager for Bal-
four Beatty Communities.
"The survey allows us to
