NASWI NEWS Welcome aboard to new base XO, CDR Steven Richards. He and IDIPIC director JoAnn Hellmann got a chance to chat a bit at the base Open House July 19th. He was also game enough to try to walk the line with the Fatal Vision goggles. Over 300 folks stopped by our display table that day with many trying the trivia quiz or the goggles. Has your command had an IDIPIC panel more than two years ago… or perhaps coming due this year? Contact JoAnn at idipic@idipic.org to check. These are award-winning DUI prevention panels provided to your command free thanks to community funding. Read all about it in a recent issue of Northwest Navy Life HERE. Additional panel details can be found HERE.
