Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC) Omaha is a small group of 14 active duty staff members located at the Offutt Air Force Base whose mission is to assist and support the nearly 250 Naval Reservists in the area. Having recently established a diversity program, its Department Head and Diversity Coordinator, ITSN Collin Phillips, contacted Omaha’s Institute for Holocaust Education (IHE) for an educational speaker about the Holocaust for Armed Forces Day, May 15. IHE’s Education Coordinator, Kael Sagheer, recommended me and put us in contact with each other. Collin explained to me his plan to broadcast my presentation via the Navy’s secure version of Zoom/Skype so that every member of the Navy’s local community would be able to tune in, as well as their families. After overcoming some technical issues, my presentation today was seen by 2 dozen viewers and recorded for later viewing by the broader local community of Navy personnel.
