NNS130718-05. US, Australian Navies Conduct ASW Exercises during TS13

By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Paul Kelly, USS Preble Public Affairs

CORAL SEA (NNS) — U.S. and Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Sailors began a series of Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) exercises off the northeast coast of Australia in support of Talisman Saber 2013 (TS 13), July 16.

The series of ASW exercises provide the two militaries a chance to flex their capabilities while focusing on improving interoperability and coordination.

“To see the two nations work together effectively in a multi-threat high end warfare environment is an impressive sight,” said Lt. Cmdr. Jonathan Bannister, torpedo and anti-submarine warfare officer for RAN’s guided-missile frigate HMAS Sydney (FFG 03). “It’s also a testament to the interoperability that exists at every level of our military force.”

These exercises will include scenarios involving but not limiting to, detection and success over simulated opponents, which put the navies’ tactical training and communications to the test.

“We have spent the last three months conducting high-end war fighting training while embedded with the George Washington Carrier Strike Group,” said Bannister. “To have the opportunity to put all the lessons and skills to use in a live, combined, and joint environment is excellent. My anti-submarine warfare team has performed over and above what was expected of them. They have relished the opportunity to take part in Talisman Saber 2013.”

Approximately 8,000 U.S. and 1,000 Australian personnel will participate in the ASW exercises over the next few days.

“I think it’s really important that we practice these skills,” said Sonar Technician (Surface) 1st Class Josh Mobley, assigned to Arleigh-burke class guided-missile destroyer USS Preble (DDG 88). “We need to train together so we can understand each other and strengthen our capability to handle any situation.”

Exercises such as TS 13 provide realistic and relevant training that is necessary to maintain regional security, peace and stability.
Some of the participants of the ASW portion of TS 13 include the George Washington Carrier Strike Group comprised of Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) with embarked Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5, embarked Commander Destroyer Squadron 15, Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam (CG 54), Arleigh-burke class guided-missile destroyers USS Lassen (DDG 82), USS Preble (DDG 88), USS Momsen (DDG 92), USS Chung-Hoon (DDG 93), and the RAN guided-missile frigate HMAS Sydney (FFG 03).

NNS130717-16. NECC Holds Change of Command

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Kay Savarese

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) — Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) held a change of command ceremony at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Ft. Story, July 17.

Rear Adm. Frank A. Morneau relieved Rear Adm. Michael P. Tillotson as commander.

Adm. William E. Gortney, commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Command, gave the ceremony’s keynote address. “This change of command ceremony provides an opportunity to present the remarkable leadership of Rear Adm. Michael Tillotson,” said Gortney. “NECC is a shining example of what is right about our Navy, and it’s on display here today.”

Gortney presented Tillotson with the Distinguished Service Medal as an end-of-tour award. Tillotson attributed the award to the hard work and support of the NECC Sailors and leaders.

“It has been my honor to serve as commander of NECC,” said Tillotson. “You have exceeded my intent, that of ensuring our forces operating forward have everything they need to take the fight to the enemy.”

The ceremony marked the end of Tillotson’s second tour as commander of NECC. Tillotson recalled the challenges faced, lessons learned, and achievements made by the men and women who make up the NECC force, before reading the orders relieving him of command.

“This staff has accomplished a lot and faced many challenges,” said Tillotson. “To the men and women of Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, the staff and all our tribes, I thank you all for your support and dedication, but also for the goodwill with which you have performed your duty.”

Upon assuming command, Morneau recognized Tillotson’s hard work and leadership through NECC’s maturation as the single function command for the Navy’s expeditionary forces.

“I couldn’t be more proud to have inherited the leadership team here,” said Morneau. “To the men and women of Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, it’s my privilege to take command here today.”

“You and your Sailors have fought hard, and your families have sacrificed more and made America better,” said Morneau. “To continue the warfighting capabilities that this force brings to the fleet, it’s going to take the best of us, our courage and our conviction to continue to provide the best led, best trained and best force of the world. You have my promise on that.”

Prior to arriving at NECC, Morneau served as the deputy director for Expeditionary Warfare Division. His operational background includes Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Mobile Unit 2; EOD Group 2 Detachment Norfolk, Va.; and EOD Mobile Unit 6. He commanded EOD Mobile Unit 8, in Sigonella, Sicily; EOD Group 2 in Norfolk, Va.; and Navy Expeditionary Combat Forces Command Central (Task Force 56) in Bahrain.

Morneau’s shore assignments include Naval School Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Navy Personnel Command, Joint Staff Operations Directorate, and the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization.

NECC forces are globally deployed, providing capability across the full range of military operations in the maritime strategy to include forward presence, maritime security, humanitarian assistance and disaster response, sea control and power projection and deterrence. The forces that comprise NECC include Naval Construction; Coastal Riverine; Expeditionary Logistics Support; Explosive Ordnance Disposal; Maritime Civil Affairs and Security Training; Expeditionary Intelligence; Expeditionary Combat Camera; and Expeditionary Combat Readiness.

NNS130718-02. Feds Feed Families Kicks Off

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class David Giorda, Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON (NNS) — The Department of Defense (DoD) as well as the Navy and Marine Corps kicked off Feds Feed Families at the Pentagon July 17.
Feds Feed Families is a campaign lead by the United States Department of Agriculture aimed to help people in need. The campaign doesn’t have any set goals, but hopes to receive more than 1.2 million pounds of food and other items throughout the DoD. The campaign encourages employees and service members of the DoD to donate by bringing non-perishable and house hold items to their offices.
“So this year we don’t have any goals or inter service competition but we still want to be the best; We want to collect the most food and we want to help those who are truly in need,” said Senior Executive Service Carla Lucchino, Assistant Deputy Commandant, Installations & Logistics, Marine Corps.
Since 2009, the Navy and Marine Corps have placed collection boxes at commands around the globe, guaranteeing that all service members and their families have a chance to donate for the cause.
“It’s a worldwide campaign,” said Lucchino. “We use our whole network; all the Marines and Sailors deployed across the world. ”
Lucchino also said the only trouble with donating in the summer time might be that people or on vacation, making it harder to reach people when they might be out of town
The campaign will run through August 28. There are several items that are on the Feds Feeds Families but all non-perishable goods are welcomed.
“People should be generous,” said Lucchino. “Anything you can do to help someone reflects great on us as individuals and as a sea service.”

NNS130718-01. USS Freedom VBSS Team trains with Singaporean Coast Guard during CARAT Singapore

By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Karolina A. Oseguera, U.S. Pacific Fleet Public Affairs

SINGAPORE (NNS) — Sailors assigned to USS Freedom’s (LCS 1) visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) team staged a compliant boarding exercise with a team from the Singaporean Police Coast Guard July 17 as part of Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) 2013.

CARAT is a series of bilateral military exercises between the U.S. Navy and the armed forces of Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Timore Leste.

The VBSS training took place at Singapore’s Coast Guard Brani Base, and also included evaluators from the U.S. Maritime Civil Affairs and Security Training (MCAST) team. MCAST is designed to train U.S. and partner nations in boarding practices and procedures.

“We train with different navies specifically for VBSS exercises and operations, exchanging knowledge and techniques,” said Chief Boatswain’s Mate Elias Inoa. “They show us things we don’t know and we show them things they don’t know. It’s truly an exchange between professionals.”

During the exercise, participants embarked a simulated cargo ship, secured engineering and bridge spaces, and searched for suspicious or illegal activity. The MCAST group divided participants into bridge, engineering and sweep teams, and set up unpredictable scenarios to challenge the groups.

“I’ve never done any training this in-depth before,” said Gunner’s Mate 1st Class Michael Davis. “It really helped us learn how to communicate with each other on a mission, rely on each others observations. It helped strengthen the bond between us as team members.”

Chief Fire Controlman Richard Schaefer, Freedom’s VBSS team leader, said the exercise was a rare opportunity for an interchange of ideas and best practices with their Singaporean counterparts, and a welcome addition to the CARAT exercise.

“This exercise will help us prepare for the challenges of compliant boardings in Southeast Asia. It will also build the confidence we have in each other as maritime partners, since we’ll know we both received the same level of training,” said Schaefer. “We will learn different tactics from them, and they will learn from us.”

MCAST team members said they were impressed that both teams stayed motivated and never gave up during the long, sometimes frustrating evolution. “The main thing we want them to get out of this exercise is not to give up and keep trying to work through the problems,” said Inoa. “I really enjoyed working with the Freedom team, and hope to see them again next year.”

USS Freedom deployed to Southeast Asia in March with 91 Sailors on board, including personnel to operate an MH-60R helicopter and VBSS teams to operate two 11-meter Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIB), as part of the ship’s maritime security module.

NNS130717-08. USS Bonhomme Richard Participates in Exercise Talisman Saber 2013

From USS Bonhomme Richard Public Affairs

USS BONHOMME RICHARD, At Sea (NNS) — The forward-deployed amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6), the flagship of the Bonhomme Richard Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) officially began participating in exercise Talisman Saber 2013 (TS13) July 15.

Talisman Saber is aimed at improving Australian Defence Force (ADF) and U.S. combat readiness and interoperability as a Combined Joint Task Force. The 2013 exercise, which runs through August 5, is designed to enhance collaboration in support of future combined operations, humanitarian emergencies and natural disasters.

In addition to improving both nations’ ability to work bilaterally and multilaterally throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific region and globally, the exercise also demonstrates the closeness of the Australian and U.S. alliance.

“Talisman Saber 2013 is designed to enhance our interoperability with the Australian Defense Forces, our long-standing partners in this region,” said Rear Adm. Jeffery Harley, commander, Amphibious Forces 7th Fleet. “The embark of Australian naval officers aboard Bonhomme Richard will allow us to more closely integrate our staffs during this complex bilateral, combined and joint exercise.”

Jointly sponsored by the U.S. Pacific Command and ADF Headquarters Joint Operations Command, TS13 will incorporate a combined and joint force of more than 27,000 U.S. and Australian personnel from the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force, the ADF and other government agencies from each country.

The Bonhomme Richard ARG’s primary responsibility for TS13 is to land the Marine Landing Forces of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit in order to train U.S. and Australian personnel to respond to crises and provide humanitarian assistance when called upon.

Lt. Emily Royse, PHIBRON 11’s operations officer, explained why the Bonhomme Richard’s role in this exercise is so significant.

“BHR and her crew are in their element as they demonstrate the capabilities of the Navy’s only forward-deployed amphibious assault ship,” said Royse. “Her presence, with Commander, Amphibious Force 7th Fleet (CTF76), Commander, Amphibious Squadron 11 (CPR-11), 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, and Australian Amphibious Task Group staff embarked allows U.S forces to continue building upon the bilateral military partnership with Australian forces formed during World War II.”

The Bonhomme Richard ARG is commanded by Capt. Cathal O’Connor, commodore, Amphibious Squadron (PHIBRON) 11 and reports to the Commander, Amphibious Force 7th Fleet, Rear Adm. Jeffrey A. Harley, headquartered in White Beach, Okinawa, Japan.

NNS130717-07. Pacific Partnership Donates Toys to School for Disabled Children

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Tim D. Godbee

TARAWA, Republic of Kiribati (NNS) — Pacific Partnership 2013, Project Handclasp and U.S. and partner nation service members distributed toys to students at the Kiribati School for the Disabled during as a part of a community service event on Tarawa Atoll, Republic of Kiribati, July 17.

The community service event also included a performance by the U.S. Pacific Fleet Band, a presentation by the students to the visiting service members and a number of cultural exchanges.

“Community service events are important because they embody the true spirit of Pacific Partnership,” said Lt. j.g. Ronald Uglow, one of the event organizers. “It’s not only about engineering and medical projects. It’s about showing a face to people who often only hear about the great things our militaries do.”

John Mostyn Anderson, one of the school’s board members, said that the day was about connecting different cultures from around the world and lifting the spirits of children who don’t always have much to smile about.

“The kids just loved the band!” said Anderson. “It was a very happy mixture of cultures. It’s the human side of information exchange. We all hear about the U.S. and other nations in the papers, but to have these ladies and guys come out and be with us is wonderful.”

Anderson also added that the school often struggles with budgets and that the students and teachers are grateful for the items that were given.

Conducted annually since 2006, Pacific Partnership is the largest disaster response-preparedness mission in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. Working at the invitation of each host nation, Pacific Partnership is joined by partner nations that include Australia, Canada, Colombia, France, Japan, Malaysia Singapore, South Korea and New Zealand.

NNS130717-06. HSC-25 Sailors Operate Forward, Help Guam Community

By JoAnna Delfin, Joint Region Marianas Public Marianas

YIGO, Guam (NNS) — Forward-deployed Sailors from Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25 supported their sister school during a community relations event at Simon Sanchez High School (SSHS) in Yigo, Guam July 17.

“Projects like these are always important it’s just like that community outreach,” said Lt. j.g. Robert Gilliam, HSC-25. “We are part of the community, we are part of the system and it’s always that networking and just giving back to the community…that’s what it’s all about.”

SSHS Principal Beth Perez said she and her staff were glad to work with the Sailors as they moved books and furniture, painted classrooms and provided landscape support in preparation for the new school year.

“We are very appreciative of the fact that they took time of their schedule to come and join us,” she said. “We have a lot of things to prepare for and so the extra help is very much appreciated.”

Perez added that having the Sailors at the school was a testament to the relationship between the local and military communities.

“It’s a great partnership that the military personnel have with the public schools,” she said. “Especially because the students can see them, talk to them, engage in conversation, even when it comes to career choices. Many kids are curious about what they do, where they work at and so it really benefits our students as a whole.”

Gilliam said as a new Sailor to the island volunteering was not only a way to show support but a way to connect with a place he was unfamiliar with.

“It’s a way to understand Guam and know the community and know what’s going on,” he said. “We’re just here to help out in any way, shape or form.”

NNS130717-05. Medical SMEE at CARAT Singapore Brings Medical Best Practices to the Forefront

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Cassandra Thompson

SINGAPORE (NNS) — Sailors from the Arleigh Burke class destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) and the littoral combat ship USS Freedom (LCS 1) participated in an Independent Duty Corpsman (IDC) subject matter expert exchange (SMEE) July 16 as part of CARAT Singapore 2013.

CARAT is a series of bilateral naval exercises between the U.S. Navy and the armed forces of Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Timor-Leste.

Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Eric Casasflores, assigned to Freedom said the SMEE, which involved presentations by Singaporean and U.S. corpsmen, and tours of both countries’ shipboard medical bays, was a huge success.

“It was a very productive exchange of information,” said Casasflores. “It was a joint effort coordinated by U.S. and Singaporean IDCs. We planned this event with our fellow Singaporean medical professionals because we felt it was important that medical procedures and training take the forefront during CARAT Singapore.”

Chief Hospital Corpsman Edmond Reyes, assigned to Fitzgerald, explained the history of the U.S. Navy corpsman rating to the 10-man bilateral group. “We used to be called loblolly boys,” Reyes said. “An ordinary enlisted Sailor would be assigned to assist the surgeon with amputations, cleaning up after the surgery, and providing meals for the sick and injured during the Revolutionary War. The gruel served to medical patients was called ‘loblolly,’ hence the name.”

By World War I, Reyes said, “Corpsman was one of the oldest, most decorated ratings in the Navy,” with several hundred corpsman being awarded Medals of Honor, Navy Crosses, Distinguished Service Medals and other prestigious awards for their valor. He also explained to the group that the Navy places high importance on the medical training of every member of a ship’s crew, and that Navy Sailors train constantly on basic first aid and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, and how to deal with the challenges of caring for a patient under less than ideal conditions.

“We have independent inspectors, Afloat Training Groups, that put our crew through rigorous medical drills and mass casualty situations, watch our stretcher bearers, and quiz them on how they would react to certain scenarios, or get a casualty out of an engineering space or vertical space. It’s a pass or fail inspection, with serious consequences. If a ship doesn’t pass ATG, they won’t be certified as being ready to deploy.”

The flexibility and dedication of the Sailors is tantamount in medical scenarios, said Reyes. “In the U.S. Navy, we don’t call it a challenge,” said Reyes. “We call it the way it is, and we make it work, no matter what the situation.”

During the tours of Freedom, Fitzgerald and the Singaporean ship RSS Formidable, medical professionals from both navies were able to interact with Sailors on the ships and ask questions about their background and operations.

“This was a very productive interchange,” said Military Medical Expert 3 See Toh Poh Daniel. “It gave us a lot of insight into the way the U.S. Navy approaches tactical casualty care and training of their shipboard members. I think we all benefited from this experience.”

“I was very impressed with their use of space in their mass casualty station,” said Casasflores. “There was a lot of experience and knowledge in the room. I think the U.S. Navy could learn a lot from our Singaporean partners, and they can learn a lot from us.”

NNS130717-10. Navy Medicine Wins First Place for Public Health Film

From Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center Public Affairs

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (NNS) — The Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) and the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) won first place May 10, for their video, “Reproductive Health Awareness – Types of Contraception,” as part of the Office of the Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs and Defense Information School 2012 Visual Information Production Awards (VIPA).

The 26-minute film is intended for use in clinics, training centers, health fairs and all-hands training events to educate male and female Sailors and Marines about the complexities of family planning options, and discusses the relative effectiveness levels of 17 birth control options.

The video script was adapted by NMCPHC’s Sexual Health and Responsibility Program (SHARP), produced by the BUMED Visual Information Directorate, and received top recognition in the Training Category, the division that recognizes productions designed to enhance physical or mental skills, influence values, and increase knowledge.

“Sexual health can be difficult to talk about – especially in the workplace – but even at health fairs and in clinics,” said Bob MacDonald, SHARP manager. “This film is an easy way to communicate some basic, helpful facts, and can also be used to get conversations started between patients and doctors, trainers and students and between couples. We hope it will be used for deliberate training events and also in waiting rooms.”

VIPA is a Department of Defense annual competition that recognizes the effective and purposeful use of video productions that meet the official communication requirements of a Military Component or subordinate organization. The competition consists of five categories: Training, Recruitment, Internal/Public Information, Documentary, and Public Service Announcement (PSA) as well as “Production of the Year” award. The films were judged by a panel of media professionals based on four criteria: achievement of stated purpose, appropriate use of medium, creativity and originality, and production value.

NNS130717-11. Submariners Lend Hand at NASCAR Race to Help New Hampshire Community

By Lt. j.g. Patrick Coughlin, USS New Hampshire Public Affairs

GROTON, Conn. (NNS) — Sailors from USS New Hampshire (SSN 778) and USS Miami (SSN 755) volunteered at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, July 13, to help a charitable organization support New Hampshire residents in need.

About 30 crew members from attack submarines New Hampshire and Miami lent their time at NASCAR Sprint Cup’s Camping World RV Sales 301 race in Loudon, N.H.

As a result, NASCAR donated money to a charitable organization called Friends of Forgotten Children.

“There was a lot of interest from the guys on the ship to do more charity work,” said Sonar Technician (Submarines) 2nd Class Samuel Eygnor, assigned to New Hampshire. He coordinated his crew’s participation.

“[Friends of Forgotten Children] mentioned that they volunteer at the NASCAR race and that NASCAR donates to the charity based on the number of volunteers,” Eygnor said.

Friends of Forgotten Children helps provide food, clothing, holiday gifts, back-to-school supplies, and home furnishings to Concord-area families and individuals in need.

Sailors camped on the speedway’s infield the night before to begin volunteering at 5 a.m. on the day of the race. The crew members helped direct ticketholders to seats, screen bags and maintain crowd safety.

“The guys were really excited to not only be able to help raise money for a great cause but also to be able to attend the NASCAR race,” said Eygnor. “The fans that we interacted with at the race could not have been nicer or more supportive and everyone had a great time.”

USS New Hampshire maintains strong ties with its namesake state and has worked with the New Hampshire-based charitable organization previously. The submarine donates food and toys to Friends of Forgotten Children during annual donation drives.

USS New Hampshire is a Virginia-class attack submarine based in Groton, Conn. USS Miami is a Los Angeles-class attack submarine currently undergoing maintenance at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine.

NNS130718-03. NBK Holds “Keep What You’ve Earned” Fair

By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Chris Brown, Navy Public Affairs Support Element West, Det. Northwest

SILVERDALE, Wash – (NNS) — Naval Base Kitsap (NBK) Bangor, Intermediate Maintenance Facility (IMF) Bangor and Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) held a “Keep What You’ve Earned” fair July 16, on NBK Bangor.

The “Keep What You’ve Earned” fair encourages responsible alcohol use by celebrating the achievements in the Sailor’s Navy career and actively engages Sailors as advocates for responsible drinking.

“Bottom line is that our service does not stop at the gates when we leave,” said Capt. Charles Baker, commanding officer, Naval Intermediate Maintenance Facility, Pacific Northwest. “We have a responsibility to take care of ourselves and our shipmates when it comes to alcohol use. You weren’t handed your collar devices and you want to keep what you’ve earned.”

Sailors received a first hand look at the effects of a simulated drunk driving accident. Two badly damaged vehicles with simulated casualties were put in front of the crowd for them to see the dangers of drinking and driving.

“We wanted, really wanted, to show the shock value of a drunk driving accident,” said Chief Machinist’s Mate (SS/SW) Scott Seiler, command drug and alcohol program advisor (DAPA), IMF Bangor. “We showed the whole process, all the casualties that can occur, the firefighters having to take apart the car to rescue victims. They really saw from start to finish the effects of a drunk driving accident.”

The Fair also featured a drunk driving simulator from the Save a Life tour. The simulator attempts to replicate the sensation of being intoxicated behind the wheel. Sailors who participated in the simulator agreed that it gave them a realistic understanding of what driving intoxicated feels like and more of an awareness of the dangers it presents.

“Hopefully it scares people as much as it scared me,” said Aviation Boatswain’s Mate Airman Tiffany Thompson, assigned to NBK. “I felt like I had very little control of the vehicle while trying to drive it and that definitely scares me. I think it provides a really good life experience for everyone here. It lets you know that drunk driving really isn’t a game.”

In April, the “Keep What You’ve Earned” campaign was launched to replace the outdated “Right Spirit” campaign. This campaign in concert with “The Domino Strategy”, “Who Will Stand Your Watch” and “That Guy” speaks to Sailors about responsible drinking and accountability.

NNS130717-14. ‘No Zebras, No Excuses’ Delivers a Powerful Message Against Sexual Assault to Camp Lemonnier

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class (IDW) Jerome W. Mapp, Camp Lemonnier Public Affairs

CAMP LEMONNIER, Djibouti (NNS) — The Department of the Navy Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office Director Jill Loftus brought a troupe of performers with her here who delivered a powerful message of sexual assault to more than 725 Sailors, Marines, Soldiers, Airmen, and federal employees assigned to Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti July 11-12.

The service members and federal employees from Camp Lemmonier (CLDJ) and Combined Joint Force-Horn of Africa had the opportunity to watch the training session during a series of five performances.

Titled, “No Zebras, No Excuses,” each show was a training session comprised of 12 skits that demonstrated how sexual assault perpetrators lure their victims into comprising sexual situations, through alcohol, drugs, or fear.

At the beginning of each show, cast members and educators Christie Martin and Brady Thompson explained that the title “No Zebras, No Excuses” comes from the behavior exhibited by herds of zebras in the wild when they are preyed upon by lions. When attacked, Martin said, zebras scatter until the predator takes down an unfortunate victim. After the attack, the zebras go about their business until the next attack.

“The message is simple: If we stand together, we can stop sexual assault. Don’t be a zebra,” Martin said.

The performers are undergraduates and graduates of Central Michigan University (CMU), where “No Zebras, No Excuses” originated, according to Christie Petersen, a technical advisor for the show and trained advocate for sexual assault prevention and response. Each member of the cast is also a trained advocate for sexual assault prevention and response.

“All [eight] of us received more than 250 hours of training in sexual assault prevention and response,” Petersen said. “Our advisor [at CMU], Steve Thompson, developed No Zebras and, through a series of contacts, brought it to the attention of the Navy’s SAPR office.

Temesia Andrews, CLDJ Sexual Assault Response coordinator, said the show was geared to 18 to 24-year-old Sailors and Marines; however, anyone was welcome to attend because this is an issue that affects “…all of us.”

“We wanted the audience to see the different ways that sexual assaults occur, and we wanted them [audience] to take away from these performances the message that sexual assault is wrong. If you see something, say something,” said Andrews. “Intervene in situations that require you to act. Don’t be a bystander.”

Capt. Pete Van Stee, CLDJ commanding officer, called the performances “very powerful” and lauded their realism.

“I think it [No Zebras, No Excuses] went over well with all audience members,” Van Stee continued. “The program is certainly geared toward a younger audience, but I received a significant amount of positive feedback regarding the effectiveness of the training. It was a great segue from the most recent SAPR training which focused on group feedback and participation in a small-group setting.

One skit demonstrated how a female employee, confiding in her boss, becomes a victim when the boss uses his position to coerce the employee into performing a sexual favor to enhance her career.

“The actors did a great job portraying actual examples of circumstances which have led to sexual assault. The scenarios highlighted to some degree the effect that bystander intervention could have in breaking the events that lead to a sexual assault,” Van Stee said. “The vignettes really hit home with me and judging from the feedback I received, the audience members as well.”

A cast member would relate a real-life, often personal instance of sexual assault in between each skit.

During a poignant moment, cast member Brady Thompson told the story of a friend whose friendship with an abused wife cost that friend his life when he was shot and killed by the woman’s enraged ex-husband.

Yeoman 1st Class Darrin Glover, the N-1 Administrative Office leading petty officer, called the training very creative and praised the manner in which the subject of sexual assault was presented.

“This is by far, the best [sexual assault prevention and response] training I have here in Djibouti,” Glover said. “I would go so far to say that it is also the best training on this subject that I have had in my Navy career.”

At the end of each performance, the actors left the stage and positioned themselves around the audience and repeated the same message: “What would you do?”

NNS130717-17. Dive, Dive, Dive!-Young Engineers Compete in Underwater Robotics Race

By Katherine H. Crawford, Office of Naval Research

ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) — Student-built autonomous underwater vehicles will speed through the depths of a Navy pool in a battle for supremacy at the 16th International RoboSub Competition, July 22-28.

The competition, co-sponsored by the Office of Naval Research and the Association of Unmanned Vehicles International (AUVSI) Foundation, will be held in San Diego at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command Systems Center Pacific Transducer Evaluation Center.

Several ONR program officers will be at the competition, serving as mentors and judges to the high school and college-age competitors.

“This is one of those science, technology, engineering and mathematics outreach activities that we sponsor that’s very connected to the naval workforce,” said Kelly Cooper, a program officer in ONR’s Sea Warfare and Weapons department. “Our goal is to help students arrive at college prepared for the math, science, electronics, computer and engineering courses that they need to be able to compete at a high level in autonomous vehicle competitions.”

Over the 16 years that RoboSub has been in existence, the number of teams and level of competition have steadily increased. This year, 32 teams from the U.S. and around the world are registered.

The mission for this year’s competition, “License to Dive,” includes six primary tasks:
* Traffic lights-Two buoys equipped with red, green and blue light-emitting diode lights will be cycling through the colors every five seconds; to stop the cycling, submarines must bump the buoy itself. The goal is to stop the lights on each buoy on a predetermined color selected the morning of competition.
* Parking-Submarines must park within a marked rectangular spot with two raised sides.
* Speed trap-Vehicles will have to get two markers into bins of their choice floating 1 to 2 feet off the pool’s bottom.
* Toll booth-Submarines must fire foam torpedoes through a hexagonal cutout color wheel, aiming to get one torpedo through each of the six colored holes.
* Driving-Vehicles must rotate a PVC pipe mock steering wheel more than 360 degrees and move a gear shift from one position to another.
* Pizza delivery-Submarines must deliver two PVC pipe mock pizza boxes to a centralized, specified location.

In addition to building autonomous underwater vehicles, teams are also responsible for creating websites and writing journal papers that outline their work.

This year, spectators will be able to follow along with the racers’ every move by watching the action on new 40-foot projection screens that will be mounted in a special viewing area.

“People are always really excited to see the students and their submarines perform,” Cooper said.

This competition is meant to be a natural extension of SeaPerch, an ONR-funded program through which students learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics by building an underwater remotely operated vehicle.

“We’re connecting our support of RoboBoat to our investment in SeaPerch,” Cooper said. “If you do SeaPerch, then you may want to consider competing at a higher level in the autonomous vehicle and robotics competitions, and if you really like that, you may want to consider a career path for the Navy that utilizes the things that you’ve been doing since you were in fifth grade.”

The competition will be live-streamed to the RoboSub website at: http://www.auvsifoundation.org/foundation/competitions/robosub/.
Visitors also can watch videos from last year’s competition.

NNS130718-04. Navy School Provides Technical and Strategic Expertise as Nigerians Launch Tactical Riverine Operations Course

By Darian Wilson, Naval Special Warfare Group 4

JOHN C. STENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss. (NNS) — A program to assist African security force partners to develop security capacity has culminated in the delivery of patrol craft and the establishment of ongoing training efforts designed to improve Nigerian coastal and riverine security.

The program, which includes a training partnership between Naval Small Craft Instruction and Technical Training School (NAVSCIATTS) and the Nigerian Joint Maritime Security Training Center (JMSTC), is specifically designed to address recent trends in which, for the first time, incidents of piracy in western Africa have overtaken incidents in eastern Africa, as recently reported by the International Maritime Bureau.

JMSTC initially opened in 2010 as a capacity-building initiative with help from the government of the United Kingdom as Nigeria’s first fully dedicated maritime security, littoral and riverine operations training center.

NAVSCIATTS’ role as the only Department of Navy Security Cooperation enabling schoolhouse operating under the United States Special Operations Command led to numerous exchanges between the two organizations, according to Cmdr. John Cowan, NAVSCIATTS commanding officer, all of which were intended to support the upcoming launch and success of JMSTC’s first Tactical Riverine Operations Course (TROC) in Lagos, Nigeria, from July 13 to Sept. 6.

“From the beginning, JMSTC coordinated through Security Force Assistance channels to send key leaders to NAVSCIATTS’ in-resident and instructor development training,” said Cowan. “They also requested support from NAVSCIATTS Mobile Training Teams (MTTs), who deployed to Nigeria to teach best practices and provide their staff on-the-job training.”

As a result, NAVSCIATTS personnel have conducted three MTT events to include Patrol Craft Officer Riverine and Outboard Motor Maintenance (OBM) training in 2011, Instructor Development and OBM training in 2012, and Patrol Craft Hull Maintenance and OBM instruction in 2013. A pre-deployment site survey team deployed to Nigeria in 2010 to meet with JMSTC leadership to better understand the personnel, equipment and training requirements of the center.

Nigerian partners have filled nearly 30 in-resident training slots at NAVSCIATTS since 2010, according to Cowan, to include training in riverine and coastal operations, hull maintenance, outboard motor maintenance, instructor development, tactical communications, and strategic-level small craft to combat terrorism.

The training partnership also supports U.S. Africa Command’s guiding principles, which state in part that AFRICOM activities, plans, and operations are centered on the fact that a safe, secure, and stable Africa is in the U.S. national interest; over the long run it will be Africans who will best be able to address African security challenges; and, that AFRICOM most effectively advances U.S. security interests through focused security engagement with African partners.

“TROC was tailored after the training that many of our personnel have already received during the NAVSCIATTS Patrol Craft Officer – Riverine course,” said Lt. Jibril Umar Abdullahi, a JMSTC instructor and graduate of the NAVSCIATTS Strategic Level Small Craft Combating Terrorism Course in July 2012. “This new course and training would not have been possible without the support and training we have all received from NAVSCIATTS.”

At least four of the TROC instructors were trained at NAVSCIATTS, according to Abdullahi, and the center will also benefit from the training that the maintenance officer received at NAVSCIATTS. “He has been relentless in transferring all the skills he learned to the technicians under him in an effort to achieve planned maintenance of equipment goals at the center,” said Abdullahi.

Nigerian Defense Headquarters planned the new course as part of an ongoing initiative to develop JMSTC into a regional “Training Center of Excellence” for the entire western African sub-region. Such efforts reinforce the intent of NAVSCIATTS’ leadership and staff, who consider building such centers under the “Train-the-Trainer” model as a core component of their mission.

“We were very honored when asked to work with JMSTC as their personnel are primarily provided by the Nigerian Navy Special Boat Service, a group that is well-known for high levels of professionalism, tactical skill, and maturity as well as their use of restraint in complex situations,” said Cowan. “As our daily focus here is on building relationships, professional leadership development, operational level engagement, maintenance, strategic level instruction and human rights development; this seemed like a great opportunity to work together.”

“The fact that JMSTC recently took delivery of six 25-foot patrol boats facilitated by the U.S. Embassy through the Foreign Military Sales program shows that the system is working and that we are all committed to a long-standing relationship with Nigeria and its quest to collaborate in securing the region’s maritime domain,” he said.
