06/01/2023

It's a good day when a command gets to advance a hard-working, dedicated member of their team to the next rank after years of hard work. When we can do that to eight well-deserving Chiefs all at once, it's a great Navy day! Today CAPT Smith got to advance RSCS Autumn Adams, MACS Jesse Chandler, ETCS Tyler Kirland, ENCS Jeremy McIntyre, GMCS Jason Stokes, FCACS David Tortorello, BMCS Erza McFadden, and HMCS Luis Figueroa in front of their friends and families, and our entire ATG Mayport team. Also, OSCS Jeff Williams enlisted for an additional five years. Congrats to all!

ITC Gall and DCC Simpson have served ATG Mayport well for the past three years as Team Leaders for the respective Warfare Areas, and we wish them well as they transition away from our family. ETC Kennedy is being appreciated for her recent work in this year's annual NMCRS (Navy & Marine Corps Relief Society) drive, which was one of the most successive we've had in years. And GM1 Whitter earned his MOVSM (Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal). Not to mention we now have four more qualified Afloat Training Specialists. Congrats to MAC Shambaugh, HTC Farris, FCC Covington, and GM1 Fuentes. Great job shipmates.

ETC Kennedy did a great job today of organizing a Carnival in our backyard in support of the Navy & Marine Corps Relief Society. We had baby pigs and goats in attendance, co****le, RC cars, a dunk tank, and I know of more than one Department Head who got pied in the face! And the FCPOA showed in force to man the grill and cook burgers for the group! It was a fun evolution for all hands to break up the monotony of work, and all for a good cause. If this becomes an annual tradition, we'll be sure to send out an invite early for next year!

03/28/2023

Congratulations to the USS Detroit LCS 7 on completing their Fleet Support Operations-Medical (FSO-M) certification events last week! This was the first FSO-M warfare area certification to be completed onboard a LCS at Naval Station Mayport since the merger of ATG and LCSRON2 training staff occurred last year.

The Ship and Crew worked tirelessly to complete their FSO-M Basic Phase certification and the entire team stayed fully engaged and enthusiastic during their training cycle for FSO-M! Their events started last year with ATG training a qualified Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Instructor cadre onboard the ship and from there HM1 Burden and his team moved methodically through their training events and certified the crew in TCCC standards as required under the new Defense Health Agency (DHA) and Committee of TCCC (CoTCCC) guidelines. Under these new DHA and TCCC guidelines, all shipboard Sailors are required to know the basic First Aid skills that may be required to respond to shipboard medical emergencies. The advanced skills of Combat Life Savers (CLS) are taught to the Stretcher Bearers, VBSS, SAR and Medical Training teams to assist the IDC in more advanced and prolonged care and TACEVACS of patients if ever needed.

The Detroit performed these skills with ease and set the bar high as the first LCS to certify under these new guidelines in the Mayport basin!

BZ to HM1 Burden and his whole team, as well as the Officers and Crew of the Detroit, on an extremely job well done!! It was our pleasure as ATG FSO-M assessors to work with your team throughout your certification phase! Sail safe!

This past weekend, our First Class Petty Officer Association (henceforth forever known as the FCPOA) did some beautification modifications to our outdoor pavilion and BBQ area. We at ATG thank them, and can't wait to put the freshly redone space to use as the weather gets a little warmer. Good job team!

01/23/2023

For our local Mayport Sailors, and their friends and families. January is National OPSEC Awareness Month.

National Operations Security (OPSEC) Awareness Month is an opportunity for government agencies, public and private-sector entities, and individuals to reflect on ways to mitigate the various vulnerabilities, risks, and threats to their organizations. This year, the National OPSEC Program (NOP) is focusing on familiarizing personnel with the elements of an effective OPSEC program, to include an emphasis on implementation of the OPSEC cycle.

The term OPSEC was coined by the U.S. military following the realization during the Vietnam War that the enemy was piecing together seemingly innocuous, unprotected information to learn about U.S. military operations in advance. Predictable behavior, lack of communications discipline, and unnecessary sharing of information resulted in the collection and exploitation of information by the enemy. Today, OPSEC is a systematic and proven security discipline for denying adversaries the ability to collect, analyze, and exploit information, including capabilities and intentions. OPSEC has been applied effectively throughout various industries and sectors, not just in the military.

Much of today’s intelligence comes from the collection and analysis of open source data, while a smaller percentage comes from clandestine collection efforts, such as human spies, intercepted communications, etc.

When an adversary such as a foreign nation, corporate competitor, criminal enterprise, or terrorist group gathers a sufficient amount of unprotected information pertaining to operations, capabilities, or other critical information, the outcome can be disastrous.

Taking appropriate steps to make it harder for adversaries and rivals to collect unclassified and seemingly innocent information can exponentially improve an organization’s overall security. The mere process of identifying key data, anticipating the motives and goals of potential adversaries, and actively seeking out threat information increases the likelihood of thwarting efforts to acquire more sensitive but unclassified data.

Understanding the likelihood and impact of disclosure, coupled with the implementation of tangible countermeasures to limit vulnerabilities and reduce risk are all part of the OPSEC Cycle. Ultimately, OPSEC is a continuous cycle that should be part of your overall efforts to protect your organization.

OPSEC principles and tactics protect not just organizations, but also individuals, their families, and other loved ones. From a personal perspective, general OPSEC principles help protect private information, and can ingrain security principles and healthy skepticism as individuals navigate everyday situations. In modern society, individuals face a variety of potential risks related to technology, personal security, and finances. The same OPSEC mindset and process that protects major corporations, government agencies, and military units can help individuals reduce their own vulnerabilities.
During National OPSEC Awareness Month, please take the opportunity to learn more about OPSEC, understand its role in securing your organization, and how that understanding can benefit you personally. Our second OPSEC Awareness Month bulletin will feature a more detailed explanation of the OPSEC Cycle.

For more information, tools, and awareness materials from the National OPSEC Program Office, please visit the following link: National Operations Security Program Office (NOP) (dni.gov)

This past week, ATG Mayport got to recognize the best of the best for their excellent performance. Congratulations to our Junior Sailor of the Quarter EM2 Kyle Rader, our Sailor of the Quarter YN1 David Seawell, our Sailor of the Year NC1 Stephen Bray, and our Afloat Trainer of the Year RSC Autumn Adams.

We also recognize the advancement in rank of EM1 Kyle Radar (he was a PO2 last paragraph), FCA1 Andrew Leone, and RS3 Marisol Robles. All three Sailors are fairly new to the command, and we can expect great things from them in the future.

And after successful and productive full tours as assessors in their respective warfare areas, we’d like to thank ENCS Brian Follman and CTM1 Brian Mills by presenting them with Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals. Their work as team leads over the years have helped assess dozens of events, and trained hundreds of Sailors in the Mayport basin. Fair Winds shipmates, and Bravo Zulu to our outstanding performers!

Earlier this week ATGM was proud to be able to host DCCM Shimran Ali and his family, as he gets ready to retire after 23 years of active duty to his country. For the first time in his career, his parents were able to travel and take part in a military ceremony. Our CO, Capt Smith was able to award DCCM with a Meritorious Service Medal, name him an "Honorary Recruiter for Life," and give his family Certificates of Appreciation for the sacrifices they made over the years as well. Fair Winds and Following Seas, shipmate!

This morning ATG was proud to host MCPON James Honea, as he filled our auditorium while speaking to our base Chiefs and CPO Selectees. After 35 years in service, he had a lot of advice to impart for our Sailors. Having relieved MCPON Russel Smith just last month, we can expect great things for our service coming from this motivated deck plate leader. Thanks MCPON for taking the time to visit!

This past Friday we welcomed over 15 new Sailors to our command. It was the first all-hands call we've had since HPCON C was lowered, and long overdue. The XO also got the chance to award ICCS Aronhalt with a Navy and Marine Corps Commodation medal from his last command. Job well done shipmate. Throw is a little DAPA training from CSCS Urbina and HMCS Guiterrez, and ATG is ready for the fall season.

Happy birthday Navy! Today at ATG Mayport, we celebrated the Navy's 247th birthday in style. Those of us who weren't on mission took a break to enjoy some fresh hotdogs and hamburgers cooked up by the Chief's Mess. And for dessert, can anything really compare with a nice big custom cake? In true Navy tradition, the youngest and "most senior" Sailors at our command cut the cake while our XO; CDR Hollingshead; said some nice words to mark the occasion.

Attention Friends and Family of ATG Mayport!!!

As you know, Tropical Storm Ian is heading our way, and is expected to upgrade to a Hurricane by later today. It's not a first for us native Floridians, but we have to make sure we're being safe and taking the proper precautions. If you're in the area, please consider the following, and make sure your service member is notified of their responsibilities:

-Have them update their NFAAS info. It's always due for an update regardless, so now would be a good time.
-Make sure there is a stock of supplies on-hand for your loved ones. Water (suggested 5 gal per person), batteries, candles and matches, and canned or dehydrated food.
-If you have a generator or camp stove, make sure you have enough propane or gas to run it for a sufficient time.

Read up on general safety precautions the CDC suggests for any Hurricane. Stay safe fam!
https://www.cdc.gov/disasters/hurricanes/be-safe-after.html

The storm might be over, but that doesn’t mean the danger is. Keep your loved ones safe after the storm by following our safety tips. Provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Today ATG Sailors; along with Sailors from other local commands; were about to help Mayport Coastal Sciences Middle School make planter boxes for the upcoming school year. Students were on hand as well during their summer off to help w**d and till the earth. Come the fall, classes will each get to select what crops to grow and be responsible for planting and their upkeep. Vice Principal Jill Jenkins tells us there are already bananas and sweet potatoes on hand, and the students favor strawberries, tomatoes, and sugar snap peas in the summer. Come the fall, they're less enthused about the kale and leafy greens that thrive in the Florida soil.
