Observance remembers
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

By Kaylee LaRocque
Sailors and civilians from
NAS Jacksonville gathered
at the All Saints Chapel
Jan. 11 for an observance spon-
sored by the NAS Jacksonville
Multi-Cultural Committee in
.remembrance of Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr.
Born Jan. 15, 1929 in Atlanta,
Ga., King was an avid civil ser-
vant for equality. He not only
focused on African-American
hardships, but on the bigger pic-
ture of equality for all Americans.
Kicking off the event with
some opening remarks was
CMDCM(SW) Matthew Davis,
command master chief of Naval
Reserve Readiness Command
Southeast. "Today, we honor Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. and the
civil rights movement that he led
in 1950s and 1960s. Like some of

remember the marches he led,
speeches he made and his fear-

less leadership during the violent
force against him. I recall vivid-
ly the day he was murdered in

Members of the Jean Ribault High School Gospel Choir perform during the
annual Dr. Martin Luther King jr. Observance.

"A historic figure to many, I still
see Dr. King as a man who spoke
out in the face of opposition and
hatred. Dr. King's philosophy still
resonates today as we continue
to face the many consequences of
discrimination and intolerance,"
said Davis. "This year's theme of
'Remember, Celebrate and Act, A
Day On, Not a Day Off,' reiterates
the importance of remembering
his work and legacy, celebrating
his birthday as a national holiday
and act on his teachings, prin-
ciples and methods of nonviolence
as they apply to civil and human
rights issues."
The highlight of the program
came when Guest Speaker
Angela Spears addressed the
crowd. Spears, a reporter with
Jacksonville's First Coast News,
gave a riveting speech during
which she urged the crowd not
to forget King's struggle for civil
rights and ,to remember so that
the next generation could live his
dream. "Many people think these

observances are just for African-
Americans, but I disagree. If you
remember the civil rights move-
ment, the struggle, the fight for
African-Americans rights and the
equality to make sure we had the
right to vote, there were white
people walking hand-in-hand with
black people," she said.
"I was fortunate to talk with
Dr. and Coretta Scott King's
daughter, Yolanda this week. She
told me that her father fought
to free us all, black and white.
She reminded me that there were
many white people who were
enslaved mentally. That during
the movement, there were inner
and outer shackles and that her
father worked to remove them
From all of us," continued Spears.
"Dr. King said the best course of
action is a united course of action.
He thought that fighting for our
rights was the right thing to do.
He had a dream - a dream that
his four little children would one

be a real struggle! Everyone who drives knows
the drill: race out your door in the morning' fight

Fight with more traffic and
then drive around for 10
minutes looking for a park-
,ing space. By the time you "
arrive at the base. you're
already feeling the effects of a stressful. unproductive
commute. Perhaps it's time to think about ridesharing
either in a car or vanpool.
In an effort to reduce traffic and provide NAS Jax
personnel some relief in rising commuting costs to work.
the NAS Jax Environmental Department has partnered
with the First Coast Commuter Services to provide car
and vanpool services to civilian and military personnel.
What is a carpool? All you need is at least one other
person who shares your general trip route and work
schedule. You can take turns driving your own cars or
a single driver can be reimbursed for trips. You can car-
pool a few days a week or every day, you and your car-
pool partners decide. By carpooling several days weekly,
you are eligible for the Emergency Ride Program which
provides transportation for defined and unexpected
The Vanpool Program works by teaming NAS Jax per-

schedules and grouping them into seven-passenger mini-
vans that include insurance and maintenance, roadside

Looking back in time ..


Advice to new spouses on

decoding military jargon

By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor
ea bag, .. spouse club .. . duty.
. DITY . . . "det"
If this looks like Greek to you,
you're not alone. Deciphering the
strange and often confusing jargon of
the military takes time and patience.
To make life easier, here's a brief
crash-course lesson in military termi-
Let's start with "sea bag". Ask your
spouse and he will probably tell you
this is a standard-issued bag used
by military personnel to transport
clothes and uniforms. And he would
be correct...kind of.
For the sake of clarity, I like to
describe the sea bag as a deployment
"time capsule" your husband brings
home and dumps on the living room
floor. Open the bag and you will find
undershirts that are smelly, wrin-
kled and gray (even though you could
swear they were fresh and white when
he packed them six months ago), and
an assortment of gifts - knick-knacks
and tacky clothing in all the wrong
sizes - lovingly handpicked for you
in a foreign port. (I've heard legends
about women opening the sea bag and
finding lavish jewelry, but so far this
is just a myth to me.)
"Now let's tackle "DITY". DITY is an
acronym for a "do-it-yourself' move,
which technically means you pack
and move your belongings by yourself,
without the aid of a moving company.
-You will recognize the DITY move
when your husband asks, "Honey, can
you spend the next two weeks sorting
through all our belongings and'beg-
ging the grocery store for boxes while
1 cleverly and conveniently disappear
to finish up my important check-out
procedure on base?"

Which brings us to the word "duty".
On the surface, it seems that duty is
straightforward and simple: a posi-
tion of watch filled at regulated inter-
vals by military personnel. And this
is what your spouse will want you to
believe. After all, HE believes it!
Soon you will learn, however, that
"duty" is actually an unavoidable
work commitment that pops up "unex-
pectedly" on weekends, anniversaries,
holidays, and your son's first day of
school. How these "scheduled duty
shifts" always sneak up and surprise
my husband, I do not know.
The title "CO" is an especially
important acronym to learn. This
stands for Commanding Officer, and
he/she is your husband's boss -- the
head-honcho. In front of the CO it
is advisable not to call your spouse
"pooky" or "bear", or to mention that
he threw-up on his first T-34 flight.
Another common abbreviation used
in the military is det (a.k.a.: detach-
ment). This, your husband will tell
you, is a scheduled, brief period of
time in which his unit/squadron
leaves the homebase for training.
Don't be fooled.
Look for the meaning of "det" under
its more common name: "impossible
unpredictability." Vhen your hus-
band claims to have a det in one week
that will last "only 5 days," be pre-
pared that he will probably actually
leave tomorrow and be gone for two
weeks. Never trust the det schedule,
and be leery of anyone who claims to
"know" the det schedule.
And finally, there is the spouse club.
Your husband might refer to this
group as the official military "rumor
mill". The spouse club, however, is an
essential refuge from loneliness when
your husband is deployed, and then
a reasonable excuse to escape from

The spouse club also is an excellent
source of information (such as why
the squadron really calls your hus-
band "Dancing Bear"), and a means
to clarify facts (like the truth behind
that questionable picture of your hus-
band in Greece).
[WARNING: Anything you reveal
at a spouse club meeting may be used
against you. Use discretion!]
As you can see, husbands and wives
have been arguing for years over the
meaning of most of these words. For
the most part, his definition and your
perception-d.ill eventually vary great-
There is one exception, however, and
that is the term "orders". Husbands
and wives unanimously agree about
the cut-and-dry nature of this word.
"Orders," unfortunately, means exact-
ly what you think it means: Your
spouse is being ordered to do some-
thing. It.will often be used in sen-
tences like: "Yes, honey, I thought
we'd be moving to Virginia too, but
now I'm being ordered to Japan", and
"My orders have changed; we're mov-
ing next week."
There's just no getting around
orders, no matter how you define it.
Good luck, stay flexible, and don't
believe everything you hear...espe-
cially about the det schedule.

Hey, MonevMan!
Now that the new year
has arrived, I am trying to
get my finances in order.
I have a lot of credit card
bills, car payments, a mort-
gage and several other bills.
My wife and I have two
children. I knov I should
save money for my retire-
ment and I would like for
my children to go to college.
I really don't know where to
start. Do you have any sug-
MoneyMan Sez:
Yes I do! First pay off
debt, then focus on savings.
According to a recent article
in the Wall Street Journal,
most experts agree that the
first priority is to pay off
your high-cost consumer
"Don't even bother sav-
ing for retirement or sav-
ing for college if you haven't
paid credit card debt," says
Rande Spiegelman, vice
president of financial plan-
ning at the Schwab Center
for Investing Research.
That is because paying off
a credit card that charges
18 percent interest is like
earning a guaranteed,
tax-free 18 percent rate of
return. It's hard to beat
that! How do you pay off
the balance on your card?
First, stop charging on it.
Or, at least, only charge
what you can afford to pay
off each month. Then, dou-
ble your monthly payments.


Regardless of the balance
on your card, if you stop
charging and double your
payments, you should be
debt free in less than three
Credit cards are great
- as long as you pay the
balance off in full every
month. Credit cards can
be awfully expensive if you
carry a balance each month.
Once your credit card debt
is gone, start saving for
emergencies first. A tar-
get amount is three to six
months of living expenses.
Next start saving for
retirement and then start
saving for college for the
kids. Retirement is a prior-
ity because, if you need to
you can borrow money for
college but you cannot bor-
row money for retirement.
In addition, there are
many scholarship opportu-
nities available for college
students. The first one
you should cheak out is the
Navy-Marine Corps Relief
Society's Vice Adm. E. P.
Travers Scholarship and
Loan Program. Grants of
up to $2,500 and interest-
free loans of up to $3,000
are available per academic

ksonville Tax Center to open Jan. 22


T he new year is upon us! Even if you
have already broken your resolu-
i tions, you can still knock out an
important item on your "to do" list by com-
ing to the NAS Jacksonville Tax Center to

NAS Jacksonville will once again be
operating a tax center to provide free tax
preparation services through a-program
called Voluntary Income Tax Assistance

not free. Private tax preparers charge $50-
$100 or more per return and often pres-

to get their refunds more quickly. VITA is
run entirely by volunteers. These volun-
teers are certified by the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) and the center will E-file
returns, ensuring fast refunds.
Who is eligible for free tax prepara-
tion through VITA?
* active-duty service members and their
* retirees and their dependents.

The new year is upon us! Even if
you have already broken your reso-
lutions, you can still knock out an
important item on your "to do" list by com-
ing to the NAS Jacksonville Tax Center to

NAS Jacksonville will once again operate
a tax center to provide free tax prepara-
tion services through a program called

This program saves Sailors hundreds
of thousands of dollars they might oth-
erwise pay to get their taxes done, and
obtains millions of dollars in tax refunds
for Sailors.
VITA is the only free tax preparation
service 6n base. If it does not say VITA it is
not free. Private tax preparers charge $50-
$100 or more per return and often pres-
sure Sailors to pay high additional rates
to get their refunds more quickly. VITA is
run entirely by volunteers. These volun-
teers are certified by the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) and the center will E-file
returns, ensuring fast refunds.
Who is eligible for free tax
preparation through VITA?
*active-duty service members and their
* retirees and their dependents.
* reservists on active duty for more than
30 days.
* reservists within 30 days of demobili-

Corps Relief Society office.

Yes, it's tax season, again!

By Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina
NAS Jax Chapel
Have you seen the cartoon
in which a man is running
from his burning house
carrying his golf clubs worth
$2,000? As he runs by the fire-
men he says, "quick, somebody,
please . . . get in there and rescue
my wife!" (Don't take it personal,
golf lovers.)
While humorous, it really says
a lot about the man, doesn't it? It
says a great deal about the condi-
tion of his heart, about what is
important to him and about what
his beliefs and priorities are. The
man depicted here made a public
testimony about his relationships
his priorities and even his sense
of compassion.
If finding ourselves in similar
circumstances what would our
reaction be? What kinds of state-
ments would we be making about
the stuff that we own and about
"how" we own our things?
What will be our public testimo-


ny about our relationships, priori-
ties and our sense for compassion
and generosity? Yes, I'm going to
write about money and personal
possessions. But, not to worry! I
will not be soliciting you. I am
not on a fundraising campaign
(Navy chaplains are not allowed,
thank God). But I am interest-
ed in bringing to our attention
an area that is near and dear to
our American way of life: owning
stuff and spending money.
I will start by getting real close
and personal: our 2006 income
tax return. Now I'm sure that
you are thrilled that approxi-
mately 11 months ago most of us
managed to survive the ravages
of the tax season. Economic data
would suggest that the average
American taxpayer works the first
three to four months of the year
simply to pay taxes. So, with a
view towards surviving the rigors

Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina

of this tax season, I would like to
make an appeal and maybe even
challenge our sense of compassion
and generosity.
In fact, if my memory serves me
right, Schedule A of that dreaded
document has a section that reads
"Charitable Contributions." To

be sure, whatever we fill into this
section will make a public state-
ment (weak or strong) about our
sense of responsibility towards
those less fortunate people in our
communities. Please note that
our sense of generosity (or lack
thereof) will make a statement
about the condition of our heart.
1. Giving to benevolent causes
says that we understand our place
in the world as an instrument of
God's grace. Note that giving can
also be measured in personal time
and the donation of other types of
personal assets. We may even
be reminded that giving can be
an act of personal worship to our
God; for I personally believe that
our worship of God is not com-
plete without giving!
2. Giving will affirm in a pub-
lic way whether or not we are
possessed by our possessions.
Through giving we declare our

own sense of independence from
the material things that seek to
entrap us in a cycle of selfishness
and self -absorption. Giving will
liberate us from the "things" that
seek to possess us.
3. Giving says that we know
what our part is. Our sense of
generosity and compassion will
acknowledge that we assume
personal responsibility for mak-
ing our contribution. This also
addresses the practical aspects
of giving to our local community
of faith (i.e., church, temple, or
mosque). It challenges us to reg-
ular. and consistent giving in rela-
tion to our income.
I believe that most of us desire
to be generous and compassion-
ate. As we enter this new year,
I would like to challenge us to
become more adept at contribut-
ing to works of benevolence and
compassion through giving and/or
volunteer work.
As we do so, we will lighten the
burden of those in need and make
a powerful personal statement.

VA reaches out to veterans

By Department of Veterans Affairs

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is reach-
ing out to inform wartime veterans and surviving
spouses of deceased wartime veterans about an
under-used, special monthly pension benefit called Aid
and Attendance.
"Veterans have earned this benefit by their service
to our nation" said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim
Nicholson. "We want to ensure that every veteran or sur-
viving spouse who qualifies has the chance to apply."
Although this is not a new program, not everyone is
aware of his or her potential eligibility. The Aid and
Attendance pension benefit may be available to wartime
veterans and surviving spouses who have in-home care or
who live in nursing homes or assisted-living facilities.
Many elderly veterans and surviving spouses whose
incomes are above the congressionally mandated legal
limit for a VA pension may still be eligible for the special
monthly Aid and Attendance benefit if they have large
medical expenses, including nursing home expenses, for
which they do not receive reimbursement.

Time is essential if you ar

By Lt. Marisol Reavis
NH Jacksonville Family Medicine
Residency Program
Many times we ignore
minor aches and pains
thinking, "If I ignore it,
it will go away." Most of the time
nothing bad happens. However,
some symptoms should never be
"waited out," and require immedi-
ate attention. A stroke, also called
cerebral vascular accident (CVA),
can occur with relatively minor
symptoms and without warning
but can be permanently disabling
or fatal if ignored.
What is a stroke? Most strokes
are caused by a blood clot that
blocks the brain's blood supply
causing injury to that part of the
brain. The damage can be tem-
porary or permanent. If patients
seek help immediately there are
interventions that may reduce the
risk of permanent damage. Less
commonly strokes are caused by
bleeding into the brain. Only a
CT scan of your brain can tell the
How do vou know if vou are

having a stroke? Symptoms
come on suddenly and may last
only a few minutes or may not
ever improve. Common symptoms
of stroke include:
One sided arm and/or leg
* Slurred speech or difficultly
finding the right words
* One sided facial drooping
* Numbness or tingling on one
side of body
* Unexplained severe headache
* Trouble seeing in one eye.
* Dizziness or trouble walking.
If the above symptoms last only
a few minutes or hours it is called
a Transient Ischemic Attack,
(TIA). A TIA is a serious warning
sign that you are at risk of having
a stroke very soon.
Who is at risk for having
a stroke? Often people are not
even aware they have risk fac-
tors for stroke. Some risk factors
cannot be changed such as age,
sex, and race. Other risk factors
can be improved or eliminated by
medications or lifestyle changes.
Your doctor may want to put you
on a blood thinner like aspirin if

you are at high risk for stroke.
You should see your doctor if you
have two or more of these risk
* Male sex
* Age - Over 55
* Race (African American,
Hispanic, or Pacific Islander)
* Family history of stroke
* Tobacco use
* High Cholesterol
* High Blood Pressure
* Heart Disease
* Previous TIA
* Uncontrolled diabetes
* Carotid artery disease
(Carotid arteries carry blood to
the brain).
What do I do if I have symp-
toms of a stroke? If there is any
question you are having a stroke,
go immediately to the near-
est Emergency Room. This may
require you call 911. Do not drive
yourself to the hospital. This will
endanger yourself and everyone
else on the road. You should go
to the ER even if you think you've
had a TIA and the symptoms
have resolved.

e having

Emergency Department? Not
too long ago, there was little that
could be done for patients having
a stroke. Today, however, there
are treatments that try to open
up the blocked artery to decrease
the brain injury and death. These
treatments are only effective if
done within three hours of when
the symptoms started. This is
why it is so important for peo-
ple to go immediately to the hos-
pital as soon as they notice the
symptoms. Waiting to see if the
symptoms resolve wastes valu-
able time. Receiving these inter-
ventions can be the difference
between walking or talking again
and spending the rest of your life
in a wheelchair.
What can I do to prevent a
stroke? There are many ways
to decrease your risk for stroke.
One of the most effective is to
stop smoking. Smoking not only
increases your risk for stroke, but
also your risk for heart attacks
and other serious diseases. Your
doctor can help you get started on
the path to freedom from tobacco
and a healthier life. Other ways

a stroke

to decrease your risk include:
* Check your blood pressure.
* Check your'cholesterol.
* If you have diabetes, keep
your blood sugar at or near nor-
* Exercise for at least thirty
minutes most days of the week.
* Ask your doctor if you have
heart disease or artery disease
that increases your risk.
The best way to manage these
risk factors is to visit your doc-
tor at least once a year. If you
have any questions, your doctor
will be happy to assist. Further
information can be obtained from
credible resources on the inter-
net such as the National Stroke
Association and the American
Heart Association websites.

What does

Dr. Martin

Luther King

Jr.'s legacy

mean to you?

By SN Rebecca Davila
Special Contributor
How does one answer
this question? Some
think it is an easy
question, but ask your-
self this and five it some
thought. To some, his
legacy means a day off to
honor a man who stood for
truth, justice and equality
among people of all races.
To others, his legacy means
a chance to respect a man
who helped shape the his-
tory of a great nation. As
you take a moment to think
what his legacy means to
you, please allow me to
share a little of what his
legacy means to me.
His legacy to me means
more than a day off or a
parade with marching

King's legacy means equal-
ity, courage, commitment
and dedication. Allow me
to expound, or as Webster
defines it, "explain by set-
ting fourth in careful and
often elaborate detail." To
put it in the famous words
of the now departed Mr.
James Brown, "let me get
up and do my thing."
To me, Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr.'s legacy first means
equality. As history teaches
us, he had pride not only of
his race but the fact that
he had a dream. A dream

that all men were created
equal. A dream we should
not be judged by the color
of our skirl, but by the con-
tent of our character. His
actions taught us that once
we looked beyond the color
of ones' skin and saw the
character of the person, we
were equal. The things that
separate us from one anoth-
er, once we remove the bar-
rier of race, are character
and pride. Both of which
are characteristics found in
all mankind.
Dr. King's legacy means
courage and lets me know
I can overcome any adver-
sity as long as I have the
willpower and determina-
tion to achieve what I set
my mind, goals and dreams
to do. It lets me know I can
not be held back or turned
down because of the color
of my skin. His struggle, as
well as that of many others
who fought, sacrificed and
died for a chance to sit at a
public lunch counter, choose
any seat available on public
transportation and drink
from a public water foun-
tain of choice lets me know
the issue of race can not
withhold or limit anything

from me.
Finally, his commitment
and determination show
and teach me that no mat-
ter what happens, you and I
can achieve our dream and
fulfill our destiny without
regard to race, color, creed,
sex, age, national origin or
physical or mental capabili-
ties. He was committed to
the cause of civil rights for
everyone. He dedicated his
life's work to making sure
everyone was entitled to the
same education, with the
same right to vote, choice
of seating on the bus and
the same right to be exactly
what this country mandates
in its doctrine; one nation,
under God, indivisible with
liberty and justice for all!
Yes, Dr. King's legacy
means a lot to me. It means
everything I have told you
and so much more. It means
more than just a day off or
a parade with floats, ban-
ners and marching bands.
His legacy means there
was a man here before me
whose life was dedicated to
ensuring justice and equali-
ty for everyone in this great
nation. His legacy means
there was a man before

me who, even though had
a family, wife and other
deeds and tasks of everyday
living, was still able to help
show the world we were
more than just indentured
servants and/or domestic
He helped show every-
one that regardless of the
color of their skin, we are
people. People that live,
love, laugh, cry and cele-
brate the same. People who
rejoice in birth and weep in
mourning. We are people
who share so much but who
are afraid to do so because
of what we see rather than
who we see. Ask yourself, if
we were able to remove the
color from our skin, what
would be our basis to judge
each other? How would we
be able to say "those" or
"you people" or "that is how
they are?"
Put yourself to the test.
The next time you walk in
a room, remove the color
of the people you see and
observe them for who they
are and not what color they
are. For those with young
children and even those

without, sit back, watch
and observe them. Notice
the only color they see is
in their crayon box or, in
today's society shall I say,
on their computer's color
They don't judge people
until we teach them to.
They choose their friends
and bond quickly by the
way they are treated until
we teach them about race
and ethnicity. For once,
hear something from them
other than a new shortcut
on the X-box or PSP game
system. Learn what it is
like to not see color, but
content and character.
Remember the words once
said by Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr., "I have a dream
that my four little children
will one day live in a nation
where they will not be
judged by the color of their

skin but by the content of
their character. And when
this happens, when we
allow freedom to ring, when
we let it ring from every vil-
lage and every hamlet, from
every state and every city,
we will be able to speed
up that day when all of
God's children, black men
and white men, Jews and
Gentiles, Protestants and
Catholics, will be able to
join hands and sing in the
words of the old Negro spir-
itual Free at last! Free at
last! Thank God Almighty,
we are free at last!"
This is what Dr. King's
legacy means to me. Thank
you and remember to con-
tinue his legacy by mak-
ing this holiday a day on
to remember what he and
countless others fought to
achieve, and not just a day

Navy on right track for traffic sa

By April Phillips
Naval Safety Center Public Affairs

Motor-vehicle safety
is one aspect of mis-
sion readiness that
often goes unnoticed, but in
a complete turnaround from
fiscal year 2006, the Navy
is off to its best year ever
as Sailors use risk manage-
ment strategies to stay safe
on the roads.
During fiscal year 2illR;,
78 Sailors lost their lives as
a result of incidents involv-
ing motor vehicles, accord-
ing to Cmdr. Ed Hobbs,
who leads the Naval Safety
Center's data management
and analysis team. He said
that as of Jan. 3, 2007, 13
Sailors had been killed, a
55 percent reduction com-
pared to the same time
period last year.
While mission-readiness
goals often focus on training
and manning levels, Capt.
William Glenn, head of the
Shore Safety Directorate at
the Naval Safety Center,
believes it is important to
include traffic safety in the
"It affects the smaller
units more, but all of the
units are affected," he said.
Glenn. pointed to four
Sailors stationed in the
same department aboard
USS Abraham Lincoln
(CVN 72) who were killed in
a traffic accident last year.
"It was one single event
that was devastating to the
ship," said Glenn. "From
a morale standpoint, the
effect it has on the crew
and the people they worked
with cannot be overstated."
Lincoln was about to com-
plete a scheduled shipyard-
maintenance period and
was in a crucial part of its
training cycle, making the
blow to mission readiness

especially heavy.
"All of these incidents have
some effect on readiness.
It's a hole that is not easily
filled, especially when you're
talking about someone who's
been through their whole
training track," Glenn said.
Chuck Roberts, head of
the Safety Center's Traffic
Safety Division, agreed
with Glenn.
"A chain is only as strong
as its weakest link, and if
that link breaks, the whole
chain breaks. That's what
happens when you lose

someone as a result of a traf-
fic accident," said Roberts.
Fiscal year 2006 was the
worst in 12 years in terms
of private motor-vehicle
mishaps, so Navy lead-
ers took action. A commit-
tee of flag officers formed
the Navy Executive Safety
Board, which meets period-
ically to discuss new safety
initiatives. According to
Hobbs, these leaders have
focused a lot of their atten-
tion on motor vehicle-safe-
ty, since it is the leading
cause of death for Sailors.

Using tools provided
through coordinated cam-
paigns from the Naval
Safety Center, ship com-
manding officers and base
commanders have made
traffic safety a priority.
"Traffic safety is all about
risk management," said
USS George Washington
(CVN 73) Commanding
Officer Capt. David
Dykhoff. "In almost every
accident involving a Sailor,
we find that there were
some elevated risk factors.
The good news is that we

can control whether or not
we put ourselves in situa-
tions where we know we'll
be at higher risk, particu-
larly situations such as
driving while intoxicated,
fatigued, or without seat
belts. Those risk factors
represent, to steal a line
from Tom Clancy, a 'clear
and present danger' to our
bodies, our family mem-
bers, our fellow motorists,
and the operational readi-
ness of our commands."
Dykhoff said George
Washington supports safety

through education, mentor-
ing, and the implementa-
tion of the GW Safe Cab
program, where Sailors can
get a ride back to the ship
if they've had too much to
One of the new tools
Roberts and his staff are
developing is a web-based
test that will assess high-
risk driving behavior. They
hope to use this tool to
identify Sailors who need
intervention in the form of
additional driver's educa-
tion and awareness.

put it back together and
get a different feel of it.
Then we break into dis-
cussions about some of the
dynamics of motorcycling."
"This course shows rid-
ers there is so much more
to learn. After riding for a
long time, you get really
comfortable with it. But
when you take a differ-
ent look at what you are
doing, the clarification of
how much more there is to
learn becomes so clear," he
"Sometimes you don't
get a second chance on the
road. This course gives rid-
ers the chance to look for
other options and ways to
avoid a situation, increase
safety margins and gives
them a better understand-
ing of the risks around
them and how to manage
that risk."
The new course was
developed for motorcyclists
who have completed a MSF
Basic Rider Course (BRC) or
Experienced Rider Course
(ERC). The SERC was
developed as a step towards
fulfilling the MSF vision
of lifelong learning. It is
designed to enhance rid-
ers' existing skills in brak-
ing and cornering through
an increased awareness
of traction, as well as risk
awareness, acceptance and
management, providing an
excellent "tool box" for all
: This goes well beyond the
BRC and ERC rudimenta-
ry concepts of simple pro-
gressive braking and out-
gide-inside-outside corners.
Braking exercises in the
new course are developed'
to help the rider see exactly
how each brake contributes
to stopping the motorcycle
singularly and then in tan-
dem, and other exercises
develop skills for braking
in emergency situations.
Cornering exercises build
cornering proficiency using
advanced techniques that
will become indispensable
to riders by giving them
choices that will ultimately
make their cornering safer

and more efficient.
Riding a motorcycle is
all about traction manage-
ment. The better a rider
understands how tech-
nique affects the phys-
ics and dynamics of the
motorcycle, the better that
rider can manage trac-
tion. The SERC contrib-
utes to that understanding
through a series of "road-
side discussions" and on-
bike exercises held on the
motorcycle training range.
Participants can expect to
do a lot of riding during
the course, somewhere in
the neighborhood of 15-
20 miles. That's a lot of
time in motion on a train-
ing range. All that riding
time gives participants the
opportunity to become com-
fortable in the techniques
presented in the course.
"I'm really enjoying this
new course. It's very infor-
mative," stated AEC(AW)
George Kondos Jr. of
Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast, who has been
riding, motorcycles for 22
years. "I've always wanted
to learn how to take corners
while riding my bike and
this class is giving me the
skills to be able to do that.
It's a great class overall.
I'm learning how.to take
curves and it's teaching us
the braking skills we need."
If you are interested in
participating in the SERC,
you must meet several
prerequisites. You must

hold a valid state motor-
cycle endorsement, as well
as having a base decal on
your bike. The SERC is
not a license waiver course,
meaning that if you need
a motorcycle endorsement,
you must first get your
endorsement through test-
ing at the Department of
Motor Vehicles or success-
fully complete the BRC or
ERC. The bike you use in
the course must also be
your own.
The SERC is well suited
for any style of bike, from
sport bikes to touring
bikes. Individual coaching
will be directed to riders
of each style of motorcycle
to ensure everyone comes
away with a useable array
of tools. The most impor-
tant thing to bring to the
course is a desire to vastly
improve your riding skills
and be ready to have a chal-
lenging, fun day on your
If you are interested in

or have questions about it,
please call Carl Bennett
at 542-6406 or Glenn
Picklesimer at 542-5722.
Safety officers or motor-
cycle coordinators from
individual commands who
would like to schedule the
course as a command train-
ing event or safety stand

assistance and the Emergency Ride Home
Program for unexpected and defined emer-
The Department of Defense Transpor-
tation Incentive Program (TIP), adminis-
tered by the base, provides a transit vouch-
er. allowance of $110 per month to each
TIP eligible person who rides in a vanpool
to help cover the monthly vanpool fare.
"This is an excellent program, that is
really a win-win situation for everyone
involved," said NAS Jax Commanding
Officer Capt. Chip Dobson. "Our Sailors
and civilians incur minimal cost to par-
ticipate in the vanpool and we reduce the
number of vehicles entering the base."
Within the vanpool, one member volun-
teers to be the primary volunteer driver.
The driver is given limited personal use
of the van during off-duty hours for volun-
teering their time to pick up fellow workers
and maintain the van. In addition to the
primary volunteer driver, several alternate
volunteer drivers drive during the primary
driver's absence.
Participating in the vanpool has the
added attraction of saving you money on
fuel and personal auto expense. By leaving
your car or truck at home you will reduce

its wear and tear and can possibly save
some money on your auto insurance.
There is no long-term commitment to
participate in the First Coast Commuter
Services Vanpool Program. The van lease
is provided on a month-to-month/30 day
basis. The monthly vanpool per person
cost depends on the distance the vanpool
travels daily and the number of partici-
pants in the vanpool since monthly costs
for the van and fuel are equally shared.
Personnel who are interested in orga-
nizing ,a vanpool and may know enough
people in their residential area with simi-
lar work schedules may form their vanpool
by calling First Coast Commuter Services
Program Manager Prentis Clayton at 306-
Personnel who want assistance in form-
ing a vanpool may simply complete the
attached survey and return it to bill.ras-
pet@navy.mil. The First Coast Commuter
Services has a database and will match
the surveys with other NAS Jax commut-
ers who reside in close proximity of you
and share similar work hours. When there

Looking out for your shipmates

By FLTCM R.D. West
Pacific Fleet Master Chief

ay close attention
and I'll tell you one
of the secrets that
makes the chief petty offi-
cer community work. We
take care of each other.
That's it. Regardless of
egos, command structure,
duty assignment, race, color
or creed, we look out for
one another. This doesn't
mean an 'old boy' network
of exchanging favors. It
means that we ensure our
shipmates are safe and help
each other make the right
choices. We know that,
just as our actions define
us individually; our inac-
tion to correct each other
can define our entire com-
We plan and train to

respond to a wide range
of emergencies every day
throughout the Navy.
Through all of the drills
and exercises, it becomes
common practice to watch
out for our shipmates. This
same philosophy should
be inherent while off duty.
At no time during a drill
would you allow a shipmate
to act in an unsafe manner.
This awareness should also
occupy your thoughts while
off duty. Should an emer-
gency occur while you, are
off duty, you should be just
as prepared to respond and
ensure the safety of those
around you.
This same attitude
towards safety should also
carry over to other areas.
We are above all else pro-
fessionals and that means
we strive to live up to stan-

dards. Some
of those stan-
dards are
by the Navy,
some by our
command and
We should
be respon-
sible for not
only living
up to those [
but enforc-.
ing them with FLTCM
our shipmates. Again, on
or off duty, you should not
hesitate to help a shipmate
adhere to standards. This is
a tenet of being a shipmate
and a leader.

rank, posi-
tion, title or
other author-

The respon-
sibility we
bear as lead-
.D. West ers mirrors our
responsibility as shipmates.
We are responsible for tak-
ing that new shipmate by
the hand and showing him
or her how it's done. As a
good shipmate, we take


care to look out for that
Sailor in your workspace
who just checked onboard
or the Sailor in your berth-
ing who seems to have dif-
ficulty getting to his or her
workspace on time. If any
of the Sailors you are aware
of are going down a path
you wouldn't choose, take
some time to point it out. If
the circumstances call for
it, take the matter to your
chain of command. You
may be the only one that
can prevent a bad situation
from getting worse.
Maybe you're the one who
can call someone out for dis-
respecting another Sailor.
Or you're the one who can

too much to drink from get-

TRICARE Dental Program: keeping your smile bright

By Beth Wiruth
Special Contributor
Recently, I contacted
the military dental
program to discuss
my upcoming dental needs.
As I spoke with the friend-
ly service agent we talked
about the dental program's
benefits and services. This
knowledgeable agent took
the time to explain servic-
es I did not know existed.
She also mentioned that
according to some statis-
tics less that 60 percent of
eligible active duty family
members take advantage
of dental program benefit.
Those numbers drop even
lower for National Guard
and Reserve units.
The TRICARE Dental
Program (TDP) is adminis-
tered and underwritten by
United Concordia. TDP is
a cost-effective dental care
plan for family members of
all active duty uniformed
services personnel includ-
ing National Guard and
Reserve members and their
families. To be eligible for
this program, your spon-
sor (service member) must
have at least 12 months
remaining on his or her
service commitment at the
time of enrollment. Active
duty service members do
not require this coverage.
For Guard and Reservists
this program has unique
features. Under this dental
care plan Guard members
or Reservists will be cov-
ered when not serving on

active duty and not covered,
when you are on active duty
(and have access to mili-
tary dental care). Spouses
and children of Guard and
Reservists are eligible for
TDP as are retirees.
It is important to note
that this is a dental plan,
not dental insurance. With
this plan you will pay a
monthly premium for the
plan you choose (whether
individual or family) and
will then pay what is called
a 'cost-share' for services
from your dentist. These
cost-shares are as low as
20 percent of the fees up to
50 percent of total fees for
services provided. The gov-
ernment pays the remain-
ing cost.
Enrollment in the plan
can be done by your service
member at their command
by obtaining and submitting
the enrollment form. Your
service member can also
enroll you and your family
online at www.tricareden-
talplan.com. Monthly pre-
miums can be paid through
deduction from your pay or
electronic payment through
your bank. Monthly pre-
miums range from $11.02
(spouse or guard/reservist
only), $26.67 for family or
just over $80 for Guard/
Reservists and their entire
Full explanation of plan
benefits, services, premi-
ums and cost-shares are
available online as well as a
listing of TDP's participat-
ing dentists. TDP has more


than 57,000 participating
dentists. However, if'you
prefer your current dentist
and they are not a partici-
pating plan dentist you can
retain your dentist but will
pay any unpaid balance
from the TDP costs.
One aspect of this plan
worth highlighting is the
special cost-share plan for
service members E4 and
below. The cost-share per-
centage for these service
members and families is
significantly lower for most
services provided.
Benefit services include
annual exams and x-rays,
dental cleaning, crowns,
orthodontics, even dental
implants. Check out their
Web site for more complete
information on services cov-
ered, associated cost-share,
plan maximums and any
exclusions: TDP's Web site,
also provides information
on procedures and helpful
instruction ard ideas for
the overall dental health
for you and your family.
The TDP customer service
number, available Sunday
,8 p.m. EST through Friday
8 p.m. EST, is 1-800-866-
One suggestion offered
by my friendly customer
service agent is that fam-
ily members should request
a predetermination for
services such as crowns,

Over 60 years ago a group of paralyzed World War II veterans joined together to assert their civil rights
and dedicate themselves to building meaningful, productive lives for all of their paralyzed fellow soldiers.
These veterans continued serving their country long after leaving the battlefield and today that legacy lives
on in United Spinal Association's mission to serve all Americans living with spinal cord injuries or disorders.

It's not reasonable to
expect you to know every-
thing about everyone. You
don't need to get into every-
one's business in order to be.
a good shipmate. Just don't
ignore the situations that
present themselves.
The point is that some-
times you may be the
answer to the problem just'
by being the only respon-
sible one in the vicinity.
You, alone, could be the
difference between a Sailor
momentarily exercising
poor judgment and another
death on the streets.
It's never too early in

like a chief. Looking out for

Take control of your stress, take back your career

By Taya Cline

Do you wake up in the
morning wishing your
alarm clock hadn't gone
Do you feel anxiety about hav-
ing to leave the house to go to
At work, do you count the min-
utes until you can clock out and
leave the office?
Does the idea of quitting work
to collect unemployment appeal
to you more than going to work?
These are all typical signs of
job-related stress. You can often
recognize work-related stress by
behavioral changes that occur
in your work life as well as your
home life, for example, becoming
grouchy or short tempered the
morning of a meeting or a presen-

All jobs have some degree of
stress. It does not matter if you
are a secretary, a nurse, a law-
yer, a clerk, or a gardener. Don't
allow yourself to believe that only
your current position has related
stress. The National Institute for
Occupational Safety and Health
has studied stress at work, how to
recognize it and tips for preven-
A few of the common causes of
work-related stress can be, but
are not limited to, inadequate
communication, organizational
change, shifting work require-
ments, time pressure, work load,
under-use of skills, poor equip-
ment, emotionally demanding
work (policeman, firefighter, etc.),
and poor introduction of technol-
ogy, just to name a few.
Physical symptoms associated
with stress include headaches
during high-pressure times, cold

sweats, a general uneasy feeling
while at work, fatigue, and sleep-
How to Cope With
Stress at Work
To help you manage job-related
stress, try these steps, as sug-
gested by Bill Malone, a licensed
independent social worker, on his
web site.
1. Getting organized can be
the key element in tackling your
stress. When things get hectic, we
start to feel unsettled. Set your
priorities. That will help you plan
your day and figure out what you
most need to do.
2. Remember that you can only
work a specific amount of time.
Trying to fit 15 hours of work into
an eight-hour day will not prove
to be productive.
3. Realize that you are not per-
fect and you will make mistakes.
Mistakes can be fixed.

4. Don't try to do everything all
the time. Keep a steady working
rhythm and maintain a constant
work level. This will help you get
through your day.
5. Try to maintain a positive
attitude while working. Negative
thinking drains your energy
and motivation. Think posi-
tively about what you. are doing.
Congratulate yourself when you
know you deserve it, even if your
boss doesn't.
One great way to deal with job
stress is to learn relaxation tech-
niques that you can use right in
your workplace. If your employer
allows music in the work place,
try using relaxation music (water
flowing, sounds of the rain forest,
etc.) as background music.
Take a few minutes to just close
your eyes, think of something
pleasant, and breathe deeply.
Tighten your muscles in differ-

ent areas of your body, then relax
Take a few minutes to leave
your immediate work area/work
station and go for a five-minute
walk outside. It will remove you
from the immediate stressor (the
job place) and allow you a few
minutes to collect your thoughts.
Learn simple stretching exer-
cises to help release the tension
of your neck and back muscles,
which will help you to feel an
overall relaxation. And above all,
Thirty minutes of exercise, three
times a week, will do wonders for
your stress and your health. Try
walking; it doesn't need any spe-
cial equipment except a good pair
of walking shoes, it's free, and
almost everyone can do it.

Funding higher education for your children

By Julia Noreen Adams

Statistics indicate that a person with a college degree
will earn 40 to 50 percent more over time and be
less likely to be unemployed. A college education
will pay for itself in the long run, but with no single, com-
plete source of information, figuring out how to fund a
college education is like navigating the ocean without a
gyroscope. Successful planning requires hours of research
on the Internet or at the library. Start soon, because the
amount of time you have left before tuition bills start roll-
ing in will determine how many options you have.
Saving For College
With 529 plans, investments are managed to help ensure
maximum benefit when it is needed with as little as $25
per month contribution or more, and interest is tax-free.
There are some cases in which you can use the funds tax-
free for non-educational purposes: i.e., if your child goes to
a military academy or receives another type of full schol-
arship, you can withdraw an amount equal to the schol-
arship, so that you are not penalized for saving for your
child's education. Unused funds from one child's account
may also be transferred to another 529 account with-
out penalty. Additionally, there are Coverdell Education
Savings Accounts (ESAs) (formerly called Education IRAs)
that limit your annual investment amount, and prepaid
tuition, in which you pay for a specific number of semester

Pros and Cons
Tax and use benefits are similar for all three plans. 529s
offer more flexibility and control, but there are possible
state income-tax liabilities after the year 2010. Prepaid
tuition offers a defined number of classes, while other
plans don't guarantee how much education they will buy.
Coverdell ESAs offer the option of using funds for elemen-
tary and secondary private school, as well as college. The
downside of prepaid tuition and Coverdell ESAs is that
their dollar amount is counted as the child's assets for
financial aid, whereas 529s are counted as the parent's
assets and therefore have significantly less impact on the
child's eligibility for financial aid.
Financial Aid
The difference between the cost of school and the expect-
ed family contribution (EFC) is the amount of aid for
which you are eligible. The EFC is determined by an equa-
tion established by law that considers income, assets, a
list of other factors and any special circumstances.
There are four main sources of financial aid: private,
institutional, state, and federal. The process begins with
meeting the annual deadline for the Free Application For
Federal Student Aid (FASFA). To apply, you will need the
parents' and student's tax returns and W-2s for the previ-
ous year, a current bank statement, business records, and
investment records.
Free Money
Scholarships are available from numerous and often

TRICARE health benefits for Medicare-eligible patients 65+

By Marsha Childs -
Naval Hospital Jacksonville

patients believe
they lose their mili-
tary health coverage after
turning 65, but that is sim-
ply not true if they make
one important decision.
Enrolling in Medicare Part
B, the government's health

ers physicians and outpa-
tient services, ensures they
will retain their TRICARE

Financial fitness for the new year

By Lissa Ann Wohltmann

Buy low, sell high.
That financial advice
doesn't help the aver-
age Sailor who hasn't the time
to follow the stock market, nor
the inclination to do so. Instead
there's an easier solution that
most Sailors can.pursue every
"Put enough money away as
early as you can and just leave it
alone," advised Charles Johnson
a financial consultant and former
Navy communications officer.
Sailors will always find ways to
spend every dime they make, yet
they first need to consider what is

"You can either buy toys
today that will be worthless in
the future," he said, "or you can
invest your funds and enjoy (the
financial benefits) for decades in
the future."
The Thrift Savings Plan is con-
sidered the Sailors' most practical
form of investment.
This federal government-spon-
sored retirement savings and
investment plan offers the same
type of savings and tax benefits
that many private corporations
offer their employees under 401(k)
Unlike a Sailors' pension after
20 years in the Navy, the amount

you receive after retirement age
has nothing to do with your rate,
rank or years of service. It is
contingent upon the amount you

that it's virtually painless. Once
you sign up, it comes out of your
paycheck automatically with-

"You don't miss it because you
don't see it," Johnson explained.
Another aspect of knowing your
financial health is learning how
you are using your money today.
Do you always have enough
money at the end of the month
to pay for the little extras in life

or are you constantly stretched
beyond the limit of fiscal surviv-
Have you planned for life's
unexpected disasters and have
enough insurance to cover them?
Do you stick to an actual bud-
get or spend imprudently? And,
finally, do you shop for necessities
or is it more of a sport where the
only loser is you?
If you want to improve your
personal finances, you can start
by taking a financial fitness quiz
from Rutgers University.

Thrift Savings Plan provides

important benefits to troops

By Army Sgt. Sara Wood
American Forces Press Service

More service members need to take
advantage of the Thrift Savings
Plan (TSP), because it is an attrac-
tive investment option with unique ben-
efits for military members, the military
officer in charge of the Armed Forces Tax
Council said recently.
"TSP, a retirement savings plan for ser-
vice members and civilian federal employ-
ees, right now draws participation from
about half of the military," stated Army
Maj. John Johnson, director of the Armed
Forces Tax Council.
"Certainly we'd like to see that partic-
ipation rate go up, because it's a great
benefit," Johnson added. "It's important
that everyone save for their retirement
in the first place, and if you're going to
save, the first place you want to put it is
in tax-deferred or tax-exempt retirement
TSP is a tax-deferred fund, which means
the money contributed to the account is
deducted right away from the person's tax-
able income, and the money in the fund
isn't taxed until it is withdrawn at retire-
ment. This represents a significant savings
over the years.
"If you weren't in the TSP or anoth-
er tax-deferred account, every year, the
income in that fund (would) get taxed," he
said. "If you look over your whole 40-year
career, generally speaking, you're going to
pick up a couple hundred thousand dollars
by contributing to a tax-deferred account
as opposed to a taxed account."
As of this year, military members are
unlimited in the amount they can con-
tribute to TSP. When the program was
first made available to service members
in 2000, service members could only con-
tribute up to 5 percent of their income.
Now the only limit is the Internal Revenue
Service's $15,000 per-year limit on contri-
butions to tax-deferred accounts.
"Deployed troops have different limits in
TSP," Johnson said. "Because their income
is tax-exempt and the IRS has a separate
limit for that category, they can contribute

up to $44,000 per year."
As another benefit to service members,
the Army is testing a program where the
service matches soldiers' contributions to
TSP. This program only applies to new
enlistees who fill critical specialties. The
Army will match 5 percent of the pay the
Soldier contributes to TSP; the first 3 per-
cent will be matched dollar for dollar, and
the next 2 percent matched 50 cents on the
"Even for troops who have been in a
while and won't get their contributions
matched, TSP is a good idea," Johnson con-
tinued. "A major benefit of the program is
that the expenses on the accounts are very
low - about one-tenth of the average pri-
vate mutual fund. The money that in the
private sector would be used to manage the
fund, buy stocks and pay other fees goes
straight to the service member's bottom
line in TSP. You'll have a hard time beat-
ing TSP."
TSP is not like a savings account and
the money contributed to it should be
money that people aren't going to need
soon. However, TSP does have a loan pro-
gram for situations such as a first home
purchase, where participants can borrow
money from their own account and then
pay it back at a market interest rate.
After leaving the military, service mem-
bers cannot continue contributing to TSP
unless they take a federal job. They can
leave their money in TSP, though and con-
tinue to draw returns on it. The money in
TSP can also be rolled over to another IRA
"TSP is a great benefit that is over-
looked by a lot of military members,"
said Johnson. "Those who can contribute
should, and those who can't contribute
should seriously evaluate their financial
situation and look at how they are prepar-
ing for the future. You need to get yourself
in a position where you can save and then
we just think that the TSP is a great option
to put that savings."
Service members can sign up for. TSP
online at www.tsp.gov. This Web site offers
all the tools troops need to get started in
the program and manage their accounts.

Commissaries increase savings for military families

By Bonnie Powell
Defense Commissary Agency

ommissary customers are ringing in
the New Year with record-breaking
savings. As a result they should be
"resolving" to shop their local commissary
more often.
"I'm proud to announce that average cus-
tomer savings for a family of four have
risen to nearly $3,000 annually," said
Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA)
Director and CEO Patrick Nixon. "As an
agency, we always deliver the message
that our savings are an 'average of 30 per-
cent or more' worldwide, but savings have
actually been holding steady at about 32
percent for several years now."
DeCA has not revised its savings mes-
sages for over a year, but using current
United States Department of Agriculture
figures for retail grocery food purchases
consumed at home, a family of four shop-
ping at the commissary on a regular basis
can now save $2,957 annually on groceries.
The figure formerly used was $2,700.
"Considering the rising cost of food, our
buyers and the manufacturers and vendors
that sell groceries in the commissary sys-
tem have done a great job in maintaining
outstanding customer savings over com-
mercial grocery stores," said Nixon. "It all
,adds up to savings that can be used by
:military families to meet the rising costs of
, .,.

college, vacations, new cars - or even gas
for their cars."
Under the latest calculations, couples can
save $1,885 and singles can save $1,029 by
shopping regularly at their commissary.
DeCA's average savings calculations
are based on an annual price comparison
study, which compares commissary prices
on approximately 30,000 items with those
of local supermarkets, major grocery store
chains and supercenters. The study also
takes into account state taxes and the 5
percent commissary surcharge, which goes
to renovate commissaries and build new

support the system, and we're extremely
proud of that accomplishment."
