GROTON, Conn. - The world celebrates Earth Day, April 22, and once again, Naval Submarine Base New London (SUBASE) challenges local commands and activities to make a difference by thinking globally and acting locally through the seventh annual Earth Day challenge. Last year, a score of commands and activities,
and nearly 240 sailors and civilians, participated in an array of environmentally focused community outreach events in honor of Earth Day. In all, more than 1,400
hours of volunteer time were contributed to the projects. This year, SUBASE will again be partnering with regional state parks, towns and local land conservancies to undertake environmental stewardship projects. Your help is needed to participate in work crews assisting our local land managers to clean-up trails and
shorelines, pick up debris and remove invasive plant species. Projects are available to all levels of physical ability and you will be helping the environment and
supporting your local communities at the same time. During the week of April 21 through 25, SUBASE hopes to put at least 10 work crews out in the local area.
Projects, dates, and hours are flexible to accommodate your schedules. As Earth Day 2014 approaches, join us in thinking globally and acting locally to protect
our environment and improve our planet. Consider taking part in a good cause; participate in the sixth annual SUBASE NLON Earth Day challenge! Dont be the
last command on your block to sign up. For more information about projects you can get involved in or to sign up, contact the SUBASE Public Affairs Office at

In 1986, Secretary
of Defense Caspar W.
Weinberger, designated each April as The
Month of the Military

Child to recognize the


contribution that the
military child makes as
their parent or parents
serve the nation. Each
year, all branches of ser-

vices, schools and other


non-profits in the civilian sector are encouraged to provide special
days and events to honor
the military family and

their children.
Cathy Terrall, CDC
director, highlighted the

Sailors opinions sought in voluntary submarine survey


From Chief of Naval
Personnel Public Affairs

WASHINGTON - The
Navy has opened a voluntary online survey to
all female enlisted Sailors
to understand the level of
interest among women to
serve aboard submarines.
A Navy task force was
formed last summer to
develop options for integrating enlisted women
into the submarine force.
The survey results will be
used to help guide ongoing planning efforts.
We seek input from pro-

throughout our Navy,
even if they arent interested in serving aboard
submarines, said Rear
Adm. Ken Perry, a career
submariner who leads the
task force. Responses to
the survey questions will
help shape future Navy
policy and are key to getting the integration right.
Perry emphasized that
all survey responses will
remain anonymous. I
value honest input. Give it
to us straight. All responses will remain anonymous,
period, he said.
Female Sailors can

access the online survey by logging on the


Navy Standard Integrated
Personnel System commonly known as NSIPS.
Once logged on, personnel
can follow these steps:
- Locate the Employee
Self Service link in the
column on the left side of
the page titled Menu.
- Expand the Employee
Self Service link options.
- Then expand the options
under the Electronic
Service Record link.
- Click the Tasks link.
- Then click the Survey

to remain open through
the spring.
The submarine force is
developing plans to integrate enlisted women following the Secretary of
Defenses rescission of
the 1994 Direct Ground
Combat Definition and
Assignment rule last year.
All positions currently
closed to women are to
be opened by January
2016 unless granted an

exception by the Defense


Secretary.
Todays submarine force
includes 72 nuclear-powered submarines located
among seven homeports
in the Atlantic and Pacific
regions.
The submarine force
began integrating female
officers into ballistic-missile and guided-missile
submarine crews in 2011.
Many have since earned
submarine qualifications
and completed a number of strategic deterrent
patrols and missions in
multiple theaters of operation.

Editors note: The following is a proclamation by


the President of the United
States Of America.
Every April, our Nation
comes together to renew
our stand against a crime
that affronts our basic
decency and humanity. Sexual assault threatens every community in
America, and we all have
a role to play in protecting those we love most
-- our mothers and fathers,
our husbands and wives,
our daughters and sons.
During National Sexual
Assault Awareness and
Prevention Month, we
recommit to ending the
outrage of sexual assault,
giving survivors the support they need to heal,
and building a culture that
never tolerates sexual violence.
Thanks to dedicated
activists and courageous
survivors, we have made
strides in reducing stigma, opened new shelters
across our country, and
given countless Americans
a new sense of hope. A
driving force behind much

of this progress was the


landmark Violence Against
Women Act. Last year, I
was proud to sign legislation that reauthorized
and strengthened this law
while also extending protections for underserved
communities.
We have come a long
way, but sexual violence
remains an all-too-common tragedy. Today,
an estimated one in
five women is sexually
assaulted in college. This
is unacceptable. Because
college should be a place
where everyone can safely
and confidently pursue
their talents, I launched
the White House Task
Force to Protect Students
from Sexual Assault. And
because our Nations
backlog of rape kits means
offenders may be free to
strike again, I have proposed funding for coordinated community teams to
address this problem. My
Administration is working to stop sexual assaults
wherever they occur, in
both the civilian community and the Armed

Forces. Together, we will


continue to strengthen the
criminal justice system,
develop trauma-informed
services, reach out to survivors, and focus aggressively on prevention.
Sexual assault is more
than just a crime against
individuals. When a
young boy or girl withdraws because they are
questioning their selfworth after an assault,
that deprives us of their
full potential. When a parent struggles to hold a job
in the wake of a traumatic
attack, the whole family
suffers. And when a student drops out of school or
a service member leaves
the military because they
were sexually assaulted,
that is a loss for our entire
Nation.
This month, let us recognize that we all have a
stake in preventing sexual assault, and we all
have the power to make
a difference. Together, let
us stand for dignity and
respect, strengthen the
fabric of our communities,
and build a safer, more

Navy wants to hear


your thoughts on
alcohol use, abuse
From Chief of Naval
Personnel Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn.
- The Navy launched a
survey April 1 asking
participants their attitude and perceptions
of alcohol abuse in the
Navy.
The survey is available
at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KWYE,
and should take participants less than five minutes to complete.
Since the Keep What
Youve Earned campaigns inception a year
ago, weve involved
Sailors in the development of Keep What
Youve Earned to better
understand their drinking habits and how alcohol use is perceived in the
Navy as a whole, said
Dorice Favorite, director of Navy Alcohol and
Drug Abuse Prevention
(NADAP). This survey
gives us a pulse check on
how those attitudes and
behaviors have changed
in the past year, and
how we can continue
to develop an innovative strategy to promote

responsible drinking.
The anonymous survey asks Sailors about
their personal use of
alcohol, any changes
they have noticed in use
of alcohol among their
peers and shipmates,
and their awareness of
alcohol abuse prevention efforts like the Keep
What Youve Earned
campaign.
The survey will help
us determine how effective the Keep What
Youve Earned campaign
has been in encouraging responsible drinking
habits among Sailors,
and what recommendations they have for
future campaign activities, said Favorite. We
look forward to hearing
new, creative ideas from
the Fleet on this important readiness issue.
Favorite said NADAP
is particularly interested in the opinions of
young, enlisted Sailors,
but all are welcome to
participate, including
Navy leadership, alcohol
abuse prevention personnel, and Navy family
members.
According to NADAP,

All base programs


are celebrating military
children this month,
said Terrall. Its important as a community to
celebrate and appreciate what these kids go
through because as parents we understand the
sacrifices we make for
our families, but these
kids dont.
While the CDC as well
as the Morale, Welfare and

Recreation Department
(MWR) will be hosting
multiple events this month
celebrating the Month of
the Military Child both
on and off-base, Apr. 12
will be a very special day
as the Run Bunny Run
event and the Steve Elci
and Friends concert at
the Dealey Center, take
place.
Everyone in the community is welcome to

join in these events, said


Terrall. We believe its
a good way to bring the
parent and child closer, to
really spend time together for whatever time may
have been lost.
For more information
on upcoming Month of
the Military Child events,

April is the Month of the Military Child


From Tricare

Each April, the military community pauses


to focus on its youngest
members, those who dont
deploy or travel to war,
but are affected by those
events just the same - the
military child.
Military children are
unique in that they face
frequent moves and parental deployments, in addition to the typical childhood stressors of learning,
maturing and building
relationships. Even children without a deployed
parent can be affected by
the stress of a classmate or

friend who is experiencing


that loss.
The National Institutes
of Health reports that
parental combat deployment increases anxiety
in children that remains
even after the deployed
parent returns home. By
collecting this type of data,
screening, prevention, and
intervention strategies can
be developed to assist military children.
Tricare covers medically
or psychologically necessary mental/behavioral
health care, including
counseling for children.
Tricare covers well-child
care from birth to age six.
Each well-child visit is a

chance for the doctor to


look for developmental
delays or problems and
for you to talk about any
concerns you have.
For more information
about Tricares behavioral
health benefit, visit www.
tricare.mil/MentalHealth.
For information about
Tricares well-child care,
visit
www.tricare.mil/
Well-Child.
For adults, there are
many awards for special
or distinguished service.
This month, lets recognize our military children;
lets focus on their health,
concentrate on their wellbeing and celebrate their
strength.

SUBASE Sailors and civilians observe SAAM


By MC2(AW/SW) Kristina Young
and Deb Drucker, Command SARC

GROTON, Conn. Sailors and civilians from Naval


Submarine Base New London (SUBASE) are striving
to highlight awareness, sensitivity, understanding,
and intervention as the Navy New London community
comes together to observe Sexual Assault Awareness
Month (SAAM).
SAAM, traditionally observed in April, is dedicated
to making a concerted effort to raise awareness about
and prevent sexual violence through special events put
together by installations and command Sexual Assault
Awareness Coordinators (SARCs).
For 2014, the SAAM theme Live Our Values: Step
Up to Stop Sexual Assault, highlights that each individual should feel empowered to take ownership of
this problem and focus on the values the Navy Team
should embody day in and day out.
Its each Sailors responsibility to stand up against
sexual assault, said Deb Drucker, SUBASE SARC.
Ignoring, excusing and remaining passive to the crime
and the trauma caused by sexual assault devalues
our shipmates and the Navys Core Values of Honor,
Courage, and Commitment.

Navy Team New London kicked off SAAM observations with events ranging from tying teal ribbons
throughout the base to a dramatic interpretation by
Naval Submarine School (SUBSCOL) Sailors.
A large number of SUBSCOL Sailors participated
in forming a Human Ribbon on the athletic field,
said Drucker. They represented their command in a
purposeful and meaningful way; acknowledging to the
SUBASE community that they represented something
greater than themselves. The feedback I received was
that there was a great sense of pride that they were part
of this event.
Additional SAAM events include SAAM outreach
tables and designing t-shirts to raise awareness.
Its always interesting to see Sailors designing tshirts, said Chris Boling, Professional Victim Advocate.
Each Sailors individuality comes out when theyre
designing their Sexual Assault Prevention message.
Everyone has a different approach to it and each shirt
will affect everyone differently because variety is what
draws people in.
Across the Navy, SAAM engages Sailors and civilians
up and down the deck-plates to keep the focus on preventing sexual assault and supporting those impacted.
Since the Navys inception of the Sexual Assault
Victim Intervention (SAVI) program in 1994, the Navy

has continued to develop the program.


According to SAPR.mil, the first national observation
of SAAM was in 2001.
The Navy has always had a robust SAPR program
engaging service members to maintain a steady drumbeat, said Drucker. Since 2005, training for the SAPR
program has evolved to become more interactive,
more active participation, and focus more on in depth
thought rather than the standard power points.
For further information about SAPR outreach and
events please contact Deb Drucker, SARC at (860) 6942791 or Chris Boling, Professional Victim Advocate at
(860) 694-2233.

Sexual assault prevention


advocate speaks out
By Lisa Ferdinando
Army News Service

WASHINGTON - Army
Spc. Natasha Schuette wants
victims of sexual abuse in
the military to know they
are not alone and that help
is available.
She speaks from personal experience, sharing the
ordeal she went through
after being sexually assaulted by her drill sergeant at
Fort Jackson, S.C., in 2012.
I just want to ... continue
to encourage victims to come
forward to change this culture that we have, she said.
I know I am one of the very
few who has an actual conviction on their perpetrator.
The Defense Department
honored Schuette with
a Lifetime Achievement
Women of Character,
Courage and Commitment
award and a Womens History
Month certificate of appreciation during a March 31 ceremony at the Pentagon.
The Army is combating the
culture of tolerance of sexual
abuse, but it is a slow process, she said. Its important
for victims to know there are
avenues for them, she said,
whether they want to pursue
a conviction or not.
You need to come forward or at least talk to somebody. That way you can have
it off of your chest, because
[otherwise] its going to eat
you alive, Schuette said in
an interview.
Her chain of command
didnt believe her when she
reported the crime, Schuette
said. Other drill sergeants
retaliated against her, and she
faced a discharge for having a
lack of integrity, she said.
In talking with others in
her company, she learned
that other female trainees had
been assaulted by the same
male drill sergeant. Those
women came forward. The
drill sergeant was convicted
on multiple counts, and is
serving a four-year jail sen-

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Army Spc. Natasha Schuette, a sexual assault


prevention specialist, speaks about her experiences as a victim of sexual
assault and encourages all victims - male and female - to talk to someone about their assault, at a Womens History Month event, March 31.

tence for sexual assault.


I had to write three congressional inquiries. I really
fought for this conviction,
and having the other girls
stand beside me was what
actually got him convicted,
she said.
Being new to the military
when the attack happened,
Schuette said she was unsure
who to report the crime to.
The rank structure was unfamiliar; the basic training environment was intimidating.
However, there was no question that she would report
the assault and fight for what
was right, she said.
Schuette said she found
the strength to pursue the
case from the other victims
who came forward and
stood beside her, and also
from her family. Her dad
provided counsel and helped
her when nobody would
listen to me, she said.
He said, You have two
choices: you can stay in and
fight it, or you can get out
and not really have as much
as a voice, Schuette said.
At the Pentagon ceremony, Schuette was recognized
for demonstrating one of the
finest Army values, personal
courage, by coming forward
to share her experience.
Her actions are credited
with opening the door to
the problems that exist in
handling reported cases of

sexual assault, and contributed to an increased effort


by the Army to improve its
Sexual Harassment/Assault
Response and Prevention, or
SHARP, program.
The ceremony noted that
her courageous actions have
had a profound impact on
reporting sexual assault and
sexual harassment by both
male and female soldiers.
Schuette shared her story
for a training video that was
shown at a SHARP summit last year. Army leadership has made preventing
sexual assault and effectively
responding to reported cases
a top priority.
Schuette said she is planning on leaving the military.
The uniform, she said, is
kind of a reminder for me of
everything thats happened.
But, she plans to continue to help victims of sexual
assault in the military through
speaking engagements with
the SHARP program. She is
pursuing her nursing degree
and would like to work on
an installation hospital and
provide care to sexual assault
victims.
I want to encourage more
people, not just females but
males and females, to come
forward and get these bad
people in jail, she said, adding that Army values are not
represented in those who
commit sexual assault.
