*** Pat Dooling

Team PA,

Please join me in saying farewell to one of our superstars. Pat

Dooling, public affairs officer for Navy Region Southeast, is retiring

after 39 years of service to the Navy in the active, reserve and

civilian communities.

Pat's 39 years of service to his country encompass impressive

accomplishments. He served in Vietnam and during Desert Storm, and told the Navy's story many, many times in both peace and crisis.

After four years of active duty, he began his public affairs career in

1972 as a GS-2 Editorial Assistant at Naval Station Charleston. From

there he was steadily promoted to Editorial Writer, Editor and Deputy

PAO at COMNAVBASE/6th Naval District. He came to Naval Air Station

Jacksonville in 1992 as the HELWINGSLANT PAO and through several

reorganizations has served as both the base and Navy Region Southeast

PAO. Not only was he the first civilian in the Navy to serve as a

Region PAO, but Region Southeast is the largest Region in Navy,

comprising eight states and portions of the Caribbean and 22

installations. As Region PAO in 2005, he was one of the only civilian

PAOs to direct a Command Information Bureau, coordinating the Navy's

national media campaign in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Dooling has worked for 18 Flag Officers and with 12 CHINFOs. He has

received Civilian Employee of the Year (three times), Meritorious

Civilian Service Award, two consecutive CHINFO Merit Awards for Best

Newspaper (followed by a Runner Up the third year), Thompson Award for

Best of Category, Vietnam Service Medal with two bronze stars. National Defense Service Ribbon with star for service both in Vietnam and during Desert Storm, Naval Reserve Meritorious Service Medal, Navy Achievement Medal and Navy Commendation Medal.

He retired after 26 years of service in the Naval Reserve as a CTCS in

1995.

However, Pat's most important legacy lies in the people whom he mentored in their careers and in their lives. Over the past 39 years, Pat has worked with literally thousands of our public affairs teammates, many of whom he watched grow from LTs to CAPTs, JOSNs to JOCMs, GS-2s to GS-14s. More important than any medal or professional award, Pat has helped develop and lead the next generation of Navy Public Affairs.

Born in the Naval Hospital in Key West, Dooling has been part of the

Navy his entire life. He has made invaluable contributions during his

lifetime, and his leadership in telling the Navy's story has helped our countrymen better understand the mission and operations of our Navy.

Pat Dooling did not just give a life of excellent and honorable service to our institution; he himself is an institution, and Navy Public Affairs will miss him deeply.

Pat, we have been honored to serve with you! Fair winds and following

seas! (Pat's e-mail address is on the cc line of this e-mail)

Frank Thorp
