Program (FFRP) is sponsor-
ing the Navy-wide financial
fitness campaign, Military
Saves, this winter and
throughout 2007. The pro-
gram is designed to change
savings behavior by educat-

Manager David DuBois,
asks Sailors to think about
the last time they have had
a complete financial physi-

everyone start the new year
with a financial check-up.
"We're stepping up our
efforts to increase individ-
ual and family financial fit-
ness by providing additional
educational programs at our

Naval Hospital Jacksonville's 2006 Sailors of the
Year (SOYs), Junior SOYs and Blue Jackets of the
Year are among the very best in Navy medicine.
These Sailors faced stiff competition from a command
filled with dedicated, professional professionals.
At the end of each year, the hospital names Senior
SOYs, Junior SOYs and Blue Jackets of the Year for
the hospital core facility and its seven Branch Health
Clinics (BHCs) located at NS Mayport, NS Key West, NAS
Jacksonville, NAS Atlanta, MCSC Athens, Ga., MCLB
Albany, Ga., and NSB Kings Bay, Ga.
Naval Hospital Jacksonville's overall Senior Sailor of
the Year is HM1(FMF) Jerrie Echon. He was first selected
as the core hospital facility's Sailor of the Year.
Echon said that medicine was always his first choice.
"I've always had an interest in the medical field, specifi-
cally in nursing," he said. "When it came time to join and
decide on a rate in the Navy, I requested a job in the medi-
cal field. The recruiter told me, 'You can be a corpsman,
then.' I remember, had they offered me any other jobs at
the Military Entrance Processing Station, that I would
have not signed up until they had a guaranteed billet for
HM 'A' School."
As the leading petty officer for the Naval Hospital
Jacksonville Education and Training Department, Echon
superbly leads seven junior Sailors and mainages 18 hospi-
tal staff development programs to meet the diverse train-
ing needs of 2,500 personnel at the hospital and its seven
As the advance life support program manager, for the
hospital, Echon provides oversight for course admin-
istration and handles coordination and logistics for
the Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support, Pediatric
Advanced Life Support and Neonatal Resuscitative
Program courses. He manages more than 60 instructors
and ensures their adherence to current American Heart
Association and Military Training Network guidelines.

Looking back .me ;/
ON THE HOMEFRONT
William Arkin could help us
find those obscene amenities
By Sarah Smiley
I'm a little late weighing
in on William Arkin's
commentary, "The Troops
Also Need to Support the
American People" (January
30, 2007), but I have good
reason. For the last few
weeks I've been searching
for all those "obscene ame-
nities" and other luxuries
of military life to which
Arkin alluded. Here's what
The troops have
Yes, it's true. Most of the
troops stationed in Iraq
have Internet access. Are
they granted this "luxury"
to look up porn or waste
time they don't have (many
of them are working 16-
hour days, seven days a
week)? No. Basically, what
Internet access means to
the troops is the ability to
connect with their families
Exchanging email with
loved ones and receiving
instant pictures of one's
children provides enormous
morale for the men and
women stationed overseas.
Furthermore, in an era
when many people (Arkin
included, I'm sure) are
connected 24/7 with cell
phones, Blackberries, and
high-speed Internet, can
we say that giving e-mail
capabilities to the troops is
excessive or obscene?
By today's standards,
most people consider con-
nectivity a basic necessity,
similar to having a phone
installed in your home.
The troops receive
Sometimes men and
women stationed overseas
receive special treats. Are
we talking about prime
rib prepared by Wolfgang
Puck? No. Usually the
"treat" is a token item to
remind the service mem-
bers of home. For example,
just recently some troops
enjoyed a dish of Baskin
Robbins ice cream.
Perhaps this seems
"obscene" and excessive
to Arkin. What he should
remember, however, is that
for many stationed over-
seas, mealtime is the only
highlight of their day.
They're living in crammed
quarters and working long
hours under strenuous con-
ditions. If going to the mess
hall for a bowl of ice cream
gives them something to
look forward to, I'm glad
my tax dollars can provide
it. I'm going to go out on
a limb here and say that
Arkin probably isn't living
off peanut butter and jelly
and canned soup either.
Military families have
Let's define "free." When
something is free, you pay
nothing for it. Give nothing;
get something. Very few
things in life are truly free,
least of all military bene-
fits, such as healthcare, for
which service members sac-
rifice more than many civil-
ians can imagine. No, we
don't pay money for health-
We pay with other,
intangible things far more
important than money. We
"pay" when our spouse is
halfway across the world
for their son's birth. We
"pay" when our spouse
misses their child's first
smile, first step and first
word. And ultimately we
"pay" when we live with
the knowledge that one day
our spouse may not come
home. If Arkin had to "pay"
for healthcare in this way,
I wonder if he'd consider it
receive a decent wage.
"Decent" is such a rela-
tive term, but for what it's
worth, let me show you the
realities of military pay and
you can decide for yourself
Assume that an E3 with
two years of service is sta-
tioned overseas, receiving
basic pay (about $1458/
month), hazardous duty
pay (about $150/month),
sea pay (about $100/month)
and a housing allowance
(about $407/month, depend-
ing on the area of the coun-
try in which that member is
Now let's assume this
E3 is working 30 days a
month, averaging 10 work-
ing hours each day (a gross
ing our theoretical E3 is
deployed). When you take
all of the above into account
and break it down into an
hourly wage, the E3 is mak-
ing $7.05 an hour. Decent?
receive "free" housing.
There's that little word
"free" again. Some consider
our benefits a perk of mili-
tary life, but I can assure
you that the sacrifices far
outweigh them. It isn't even
a close call.
The cinder-block homes
we call "base housing" are
relatively decent and suf-
ficient, but they're hardly
excessive. Arkin's probably
visited hotels nicer than
some base housing.
And I haven't even men-
tion that a soldier making
$7 an hour while his family
lives in base housing might
eat a cup of ice cream one
night then die for our free-
dom the next day.
So where are all these
obscene amenities? I
haven't a clue. Perhaps
Arkin should enlist and
help us find them.

With budget cuts and funding being redirected to sup-
port the Navy's warfighters, military bases through-
out the world are feeling the crunch. At the NAS
Jax Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Department, this
is no exception. With a significant loss of funds as of Oct. 1,
2006, patrons of some of the MWR businesses here will see
some major changes especially fee increases at the Mulberry
MWR is broken down into three different categories based
on how important a program is for the military members sta-
tioned here. Category A, which are considered mission criti-
cal programs include fitness (which includes swimming), the
Liberty Program for single Sailors, Information, Tickets and
Tours, fleet recreation centers, libraries and movie theaters.
These programs are fully funded through appropriated funds
provided to MWR organizations annually.
Category B, which includes child care facilities, youth activ-
ities, the auto hobby shop and outdoor recreation (the marina)
are required to charge fees to cover at least 65 percent of
their operating expenses. The rest comes from appropriated
funds to help subsidize these programs to keep costs lower
to military members and their families. Unfortunately, these
appropriated funds have been cut so significantly that some
programs may soon have to be eliminated.
The last category is Category C, which are business activ-
ity programs meaning their operational costs are completely
covered by the income they bring in such as the golf course,
bowling alley and the various restaurants here.
"Each year, we get appropriated fund money which is tax
dollars and then we put it into the non-appropriated fund
money business plan and use it to help offset the operating
costs of various programs here," explained MWR Director
John Bushick. "In the past couple years, we've spent about
$115,000 to help offset the cost of having an outdoor recre-
ation program here. That money has now gone away, so we
have to make some changes. So, beginning March 1, we are
patterning the fee structure to be 25 percent less than the out-
side market with the sole intent of reducing the strain that's
been placed on that program since we can't use appropriated
This means that patrons who rent the various types of boats
and equipment at the marina will see a substantial increase
in prices. "We plan to introduce the fee increase and see what
the response is from our customers. Hopefully, we can just
whittle away on the dependency we had on the appropriated
funds," added Bushick. "If we can't improve the financial situ-
ation, we may have to eliminate the outdoor recreation pro-
gram next year."
"Our program is great for the junior Sailors who don't make
a lot of money. It allows them to experience recreational
things that they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. We were
able to keep our prices way below market value in the past
and offer rental boats and equipment so they could de-stress
a little from their military jobs," said Mulberry Cove Marina
Manager Phil Collins. "Without this extra money to subsidize,
I have to increase our prices. We have also reduced our labor

assists customers at the marina Friday. Marina patrons will
soon see a rise in prices as funding has been cut to outdoor
as well. We've decreased our workforce to the point that if we
reduce anymore, we just won't be able to keep things running.
We currently have five employees - a manager, one mechanic,
one recreation aide (two on weekends) and one cashier."
"We understand why we lost the money, it's going to other
areas. What bothers me. is that I used to be and E3 in the
Coast Guard and outdoor recreation provided me with an
excellent opportunity to take advantage of things that I could
not have afforded then," continued Collins. "It's unfortunate
that Sailors are going to be impacted by this and won't be able
to use our equipment and boats as much. In the past, every
time we've had a price increase or had to reduce our labor as
a result of losing funding, I don't think people realized that
this isn't being done on a local level, it comes from a higher
Another facility that has been impacted is the auto hobby
shop, but according to Bushick, the auto hobby shop is some-
what more critical because it manages the deployed storage
lot and allows Sailors to work on their vehicles at a low cost.
"We plan to ensure the auto hobby shop continues to operate.
They are actually producing enough revenue through the RV
park, storage and sales lots, etc. to be closer to becoming self
sufficient," said Bushick. "Unfortunately, we are down to the
process now where the cuts are dipping into programs that
are now leading to elimination. We're hoping the customers
at the marina realize that there is still value in what they are
being rented and support it. Even if we look at the portion of
the marina that falls under the business program - the boat
slips and storage lot, the profit there is still not enough to
absorb this huge funding cut."
One example of a price increase at the marina is the rental
of a pontoon boat. The cost for a day rental has been increased
by $120 for military members and $130 for Department of
Defense employees. "When we first., started having budget
cuts in 2002, we did whatever we could to keep our programs
up and running so the Sailors could still have these benefits.
Everything costs money to maintain. When you rent a boat,
we have to pay someone to put it in the water. It's not just the
people side, the boats need repairing and parts," said Collins.
"Our rental boats were used 100 percent during last season.
With the price increases we'll play it by ear and see what
happens. Hopefully we will be able to function as a business
activities program and be able to function as a self-sustaining
"We've made a lot of cuts here as our funds have been
reduced each year. We've consolidated positions, reduced
programs and reduced our maintenance force. We've reduced
those programs that weren't directly taking care of Sailors
and kept the focus on the programs were there is direct daily
contact with the Sailors," said Bushick. "When you have han-
gars with leaky roofs and facilities don't have enough money
to do repairs and with the ongoing global war on terrorism,
MWR has to contribute its share which means less money for

A S-3B Viking from the VS-31 "Topcats" takes off from USS
John C. Stennis (CVN 74) during their current deployment.
This is the final deployment for the squadron before they are
on final cruise
By Lt. Gregory Lubeck
The VS-31 "Topcats" are currently deployed on board
USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) for a scheduled oper-
ational deployment in support of the global war on
terrorism. This cruise marks five milestones for VS-31. It
is the first time the squadron has deployed to the Pacific
theater. The Topcats have normally deployed to Atlantic
This also marks the first deployment with Carrier Air
Wing Nine (CVW-9) after 31 years of service with Carrier
Air Wing Seven. CVW-9 is a Commander, Naval Air
Forces, U.S. Pacific Fleet Air Wing and is comprised of
Pacific coast squadrons.
Another new milestone for the squadron is that this is
the first cruise for the low altitude navigation and tar-
geting infra-red for night (LANTIRN) pod aboard VS-31
aircraft. The LANTIRN is used for visual identification
and targeting in both sea and land roles. The addition of
the LANTIRN's improved reconnaissance and overland
targeting capabilities, both new mission areas for sea
control squadrons, allows the Topcats to bring an elevated
combat presence to the Stennis Carrier Strike Group. VS-
31 expects to use this asset to help troops on the ground,
wherever they may be.
In addition to their new responsibilities, the squadron
remains the air wing's primary aerial refueling and sea
control asset. This cruise also marks the final Western
Pacific deployment for a S-3B squadron, as all west coast
S-3B squadrons have now been replaced with the F/A-18
E/F Super Hornet.
Lastly, this cruise marks the final deployment of VS-31
after a long and distinguished 65-year history of service.

ness of the squadron.
The first day of training in Hurlburt included deck
landing qualifications (DLQs) for eight pilots. Two
H60's headed west to Pensacola Bay to get their bounces
on a Baylander IX-514. All helicopter pilots complete
their initial training on the IX-514. After completing
the day landings, the crews moved right into the night
landings. The two H60s completed 64 landings in less
than three hours.
The next few days were spent getting used to flying in
the congested airspace that surrounds Eglin Air Force
Base, NAS Whiting Field and NAS Pensacola. After a
few days of familiarization flights, the crews began fly-
ing at night and working with the ODA team. The first
challenge was a fast rope event for the ODA team. After
several day iterations, the crews moved right into the
night training. It proved to be great training for both
HS-11 and the ODA team. Both groups were able to
learn valuable lessons that would make the later events
Over the next few nights, the ODA team and HS-11I
worked on hot inserts and extracts. This allowed the
team on the ground to simulate that they were'under
fire from the enemy. The helicopters were called in to
provide cover for the troops on the ground. Once the
area, was clear, the helicopters proceeded into the land-
ing zone to retrieve the ODA team. The Dragonslayers
executed several evolutions flawlessly.
After a week at Hurlhurt, Airfield, the Dragonslayers
completed more than 20 truiningf light-i. The flights
could not have been accomplished without the stellar
effort from the maintenance side of the detachment. Ten
mairnLnineiirs were responsible for keeping three aircraft
flying and shooting eight to 10 hours a day. Usually
squadrons have 10-15 maintainers per aircraft on a
detachment. The fact that HS-11 was able to maintain,
three aircraft with just 10 maintenance personnel and
not miss a mission sortie proves that HS-11 is 'double
one, second to none.'

The Navy Entomology Center of Excellence
(NECE) located at NAS Jacksonville pro-
vides service members who deploy to com-
bat zones or third world countries to fight the war
on terrorism protection from hazards and threats
posed by insects.
These tiny menaces have the capability to inflict
more casualties on a military unit than bullets or
bombs combined. Although insects and diseases
are under control in some parts of the world, there
are many countries where these tiny enemies run
Unfortunately, these are the same areas of the
world our service members are often deployed,
which makes disease carrying insects, or vectors,
a serious threat to mission readiness. Diseases can
spread quickly in a military unit, due to the bite of
mosquitoes or ticks, unsanitary living conditions,
water contamination, and/or human contact.
However, one hazard that many of them may
overlook is the threat posed by insects. These tiny
menaces have the capability to inflict more casu-
alties on a military unit than bullets or bombs
combined. Although insects and diseases are under
control in some parts of the world, there are many
countries where these tiny enemies run rampant.
Unfortunately, these are the same areas of the

which makes disease carrying insects, or vectors,
a serious threat to mission readiness. Diseases can
spread quickly in a military unit, due to the bite of
mosquitoes or ticks, unsanitary living conditions,
water contamination and/or human contact.
To protect our military personnel against these
diseases, primarily those transmitted (or vec-
tored) by insects, the Department of Defense (DoD)
employs a small group of medical entomologists
among the branches of the Armed Services. These
highly trained professionals work hand-in-hand
with their enlisted counterparts, the preventive
medical technicians (PMTs), who are responsible
for a variety of programs all aimed at keeping our
"I often have to explain what an entomologist is
and why the Navy would need uniformed entomolo-
gists. The nature of vector control is preventative,
therefore, we do not get much notice until existing
pest and vector control practices are overwhelmed,
often resulting in outbreaks of vector-borne dis-
ease," remarked Navy Entomologist Lt.j.g. Connie
The Department of the Navy employs approx-
imately 36 entomologists stationed around the
world, 11 of whom are assigned to the Navy
Entomology Center of Excellence (NECE) at NAS

in specifics on the biology and
control of insects and other arthropods such
as scorpions and spiders.
They are also often called upon to assist when
vertebrates such as rodents, snakes and mammals
become a threat to personnel. NECE personnel con-
duct reviews of shore installations to ensure pes-
ticides are used safely and effectively. In addition,
they also provide information to deploying units on
medically important vectors in their area of opera-
tions as well as recommend the best methods for
vector control. "Controlling insect pests and vectors
is very much like waging a war, you have to learn
all you can about your enemy and even when you
think you have them beat, they develop some mech-
anism to get around your plans. We have a chal-
lenging but rewarding job," commented Johnson.
One of the most important jobs the NECE has
is ensuring deployed personnel are protected from
vectors of disease. They provide training in public
health pest control and certify PMTs and DoD pest
controllers to apply pesticides toward this cause.
"Our unit has provided support to local deploying
units by treating uniforms with a repellant that
provides protection against mites, fleas, ticks and
mosquitoes," said Johnson.
"Deploying troops are to follow the DoD Insect
Repellant System which includes wearing the repel-
lant treated uniform, proper wear of the uniform
and application of a 33 percent DEET, solution to
exposed areas of skin."
"Using this system, up to 99 percent of troops can
be protected from vector-borne diseases. What that
ultimately means is . . . they can remain healthy,
continue to do their jobs and accomplish the mis-
sion at hand," she added.
The NECE also conducts in-house and off-site
training for service members and DoD civilians.
They also offer an on-the-job training program
that allows qualified military personnel to intern
at their center for two weeks. Also, the department
hosts school tours and its members offer presenta-
tions to local schools.
"We teach children about insects, most ,of which
are beneficial to man. There are only a few groups
of insects that spread disease and they do it so
effectively. What the school children generally
get out of our presentations' is a fascination with
insects and they really enjoy seeing our educational
animals like our Emperor scorpion, Tobi, and the
Madagascar hissing roaches since they've often
seen these animals on the television show, Fear
Factor," said Johnson.
While mosquitoes are usually their biggest con-
cern, the entomologists also keep a close eye on
ticks, flies, spiders and when called upon a wide
variety of reptiles. Mosquitoes carry many dis-
eases including malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever,
encephalitis, and West Nile virus. Ticks carry Lyme
disease and sand flies can carry leishmaniasis.
"The most satisfaction I have in doing my job, is
in delivering some relief to those who need help in
eliminating a pest or in providing vector control
support for our troops. When we do our job we
remain anonymous and Sailors and Marines can
conduct their mission free of nuisance insects or

Cmdr. Daniel Szumlas observes a colony of German cockroaches that was grown
at the center from two roaches that were gathered from a local naval vessel.
Further testing on the creatures will decide which pesticide is best at ridding the
ship of the infestation.
Tobi, an emperor scorpion, is large enough to kill her prey with her claws.
Therefore, she is more docile since she doesn't have to inject immobilizing venom
into her prey. Tobi is a species of scorpion whose sting is only toxic to one percent
of the population which isn't the case with the scorpions of the Western United
States or Iraq and Kuwait where troops have experienced life-threatening reac-
tions within minutes to scorpions in these areas.

to our national flag
Out of the travails of our nation's birth, in the
midst of a bitter war for independence, our
National Emblem emerged on June 14, 1777, a
beautiful flag combining the blue of vigilance, perse-
verance, and justice with the white of purity, and the
red of hardiness and valor. It is an unmistakable sym-
bol of freedom that has lifted the hearts of Americans
down through the years, our national ensign!
Each morning, the base-wide announcing system
plays the national anthem for morning colors and
retreat for evening colors across the entire station.
All base personnel including military and civilians,
should be aware of the proper procedures during
morning and evening colors.
The following is an excerpt from Navy Regulations
Chapter 12, Flags Pennants, Honors, Ceremonies and
Customs, Section 2, Honors to National Anthems and
National Ensign, Article 1206, paragraph 1-10:
"During the ceremony of hoisting or lowering the
flag or when the flag is passing in a parade or in
review, all persons present except those in uniform
should face the flag and stand at attention with the
right hand over the heart. Those present in uniform
should render the military salute. When not in uni-
form, men should remove their headdress with their
right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand
being over the heart.
During colors, vehicles within sight or hearing of
the ceremony shall be stopped. Persons riding in the
vehicles shall remain seated at attention. Vehicles will
remain stopped until "carry on" is sounded."
Our flag and national anthem are living symbols of
the men and women who have served and sacrificed in
the service of our great country. Let's remember them
every time we proudly and reverently stop for morn-
ing or evening colors!

Only being a few weeks
into 2007, how are your new
year's resolutions going?
After viewing many resolution FORCM(SS
polls, the top resolution is to
lose weight or improve your physical fit-
ness. As Sailors, physical fitness is just a
little more than a resolution; it's a way of
life, especially due to the OPNAV instruc-
tion, updated just this past May. In the
updated instruction, it states, "For mem-
bers who do not achieve prescribed physical
readiness standards by failing to pass three
PDA cycles in most recent four-year period,
administrative separation is authorized."
With world events keeping our Sailors
busier than ever, it's easy to say you're too
busy to work out, especially if you're on
a ship 'or submarine and space is limited.
Well, shipmate, you're in luck.
The Navy recently broke the news,
commanding officers have the option to
approve elliptical trainers and stationary
bikes as alternatives to the run/swim por-
tion of the physical readiness test (PRT).
While in port or on shore duty, your local
Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR)

for adults, teenagers and children and
offers a child-care facility as well. They
also offer yoga, salsa dance and weight
management programs as well as person-
al trainers. In the Pacific
Northwest, family fitness
aerobics, free-weights and
kickboxing are just a hand-
ful of programs offered.
MWR in San Diego offers
assorted sports lunchtime

Even if you don't have time to hit the
gym or pool, whether it be indoor or out-
door, the Web site, www.healthierus.gov/

to incorporate fitness into daily activities
you're already doing, such as getting a
long walk in by parking your car just a
little bit further away, walking your dog
or even gardening. According to the Web
site being active for 30-60 minutes per day

Dr. Kathleen Foley, program coordinator for the Education Department at Florida Community
College at Jacksonville, speaks to members who attended the Troops to Teachers brief at the
Chapel Feb. 14 about the Teach First Coast program. This program helps those who already
have a bachelor's degree get certified to teach in the state of Florida.

Director for Florida's Troops to
Teachers (TTT) Program Ron
Burton came to NAS Jacksonville
Feb. 22 to inform Sailors and their spouses
about second career opportunities through
the Troops to Teachers and Spouses to
"I'm not here to convince you that teach-
ing is right for you," said Burton. "I'm sim-
ply here to inform you of your options."
During his presentation Burton covered
certification requirements, options for com-
pleting certification, the market for teach-
ers, and funding options. He also empha-
sized that TTT is not a teacher certification
program or an employment service agency.
"The program consists of two parts: a
referral assistance service that tells you
what you need to get certified and finan-
cial assistance which will pay for any costs
relating to obtaining your certification,
with the exception of completing your
bachelor's degree," he said.
Some of the requirements Sailors must
meet to be eligible for financial assistance
are: to be a retiree, on active duty with an
approved date of retirement less than one
year away, separated for physical disabil-
ity on or after Jan. 8, 2002 (must register
within four years after separation), tran-
sitioning from active duty with at least six
years in and a commitment to three years
in the guard or reserves.
Spouses who hold a bachelor's degree or
higher are also eligible for financial assis-
tance that will pay for the cost of certifica-
tion tests, not to exceed $600 per person.
Burton went on to explain the different
types of certifications and the options for
"You can get a temporary certificate,
which is valid for three years or a profes-
sional certificate, which is valid for five
years," he said.
Sailors and spouses looking to learn more
about the options for obtaining a teaching
certificate can go to www.proudtoserve-
The brief ended with a presentation by
Dr. Kathleen Foley, program coordinator
for the Education Department at Florida
Community College at Jacksonville. She
discussed the Teach First Coast alternative
certification program that is designed to
help people attain their permanent teach-
ing certificate. Participants must have
their bachelor's degree. For more informa-

'Great American S

Spit tobacco, known in
the past as "smoke-

ues to rise in popularity
due to cigarette smoking
bans around the nation.

Nine thousand Americans

Spit tobacco consists of
chewing tobacco, snuff and
plug tobacco. Also called
"chew," chewing tobacco is
a finely ground form of the
tobacco plant. It comes in
two main variants: long cut
Snuff is a generic term
for fine-ground smokeless
tobacco products. European
(dry) snuff is intended to be
sniffed up the nose. Snuff
is not snorted due to the
fact that you do not want
the snuff to get past the
nose, into sinuses, throat
or lungs. North American
snuff is moist, much stron-
ger and is intended to be
Nicotine levels (the rea-
son people use spit tobacco)
are extremely high. Moist
snuff has two to three times
more nicotine per pinch
then one American ciga-
rette and chewing tobacco
has three to four times
more nicotine per chaw
than one American ciga-
rette. Moist snuff is more
popular in America than
chewing tobacco. Listed are
the nicotine levels in spit
tobacco compared to an

Don't fool yourself.
Nicotine is highly addictive.
It can act as a stimulant
and a sedative to the cen-
tral nervous system. The
ingestion of nicotine results
in a discharge of epineph-
rine from your adrenal
glands. This causes a sud-
den release of glucose.
Stimulation is then followed
by depression and fatigue,
leading the abuser to seek
more nicotine. And the lon-
ger you use it, the more
your body needs to achieve
or sustain the rush!
Spit tobacco produces
additional carcinogens when
combined with saliva in the
mouth. Ninety-one percent
of oral cancer patients had
used spit tobacco. Oral can-
cer is 400 percent greater
than in nonusers of snuff
and chew. Cancers of the
esophagus, tongue, throat,
cheeks, stomach and other
areas of the mouth are most
common. All diagnosed oral
cancer patients have a 50
percent chance for a five-
year survival rate. Without
treatment, the average oral
cancer patient will live less
than one year. If you have
any visible sores or unusual
looking tissue in the oral
cavity you should immedi-
ately see your dentist for a

lems? There are 3,000

why you use it but it's all
of the other chemicals that

Moist snuff is extremely
popular in the Navy and
the military as a whole due
to the ability to use it in
anywhere. Putting a pinch
of snuff between your cheek
and gum is very easy to
conceal as well.
Since snuff or chew sup-
plies a pretty potent kick
from the higher amounts of
nicotine, it is used as a tem-
porary stress reliever and
energy booster. The stereo-

Divorce-proof your Navy marriage - Part two
By Beth Wiruth
his week we continue
our look at successful
in order to learn from their
experience as we work to
divorce-proof our marriages.
Teri has been married
to her Sailor for 20 years.
She is one of the happiest
women I know and the love
-she and her husband share
is as vibrant and passion-
ate today as their wedding
day. One thing she cred-
its is their commitment to
quickly plug into a church
at each duty station. That
commitment has been a
strong foundation for their
Statistics bear out Teri's
experience. A recent uni-
versity study reported that
70 percent of happy, suc-
cessful marriages share a
religious or spiritual life
together. Participating in
religious or spiritual com-
munities provides couples
with conviction, training
and support for their mar-
riage. Churches, mosques
and synagogues can meet
social needs as well as pro-
vide a support community.
Glen and Joan Mears,
who have been married
for 38 years and are mili-
tary marriage counselors,
encourage couples to build
a fortress around their mar-
riage. By this they mean to
build boundaries to pre-
vent destructive influences
and practices to undermine
their marriage. Specifically
they encourage couples to
build relationships with
like-minded couples who
are protecting and actively

is now in shambles. I'm
going to propose a very rad-
ical idea. Why not decide
to not drink unless you are
with your Sailor? I know
what I am asking you to do
and I can already hear the
protests. "You're asking me
to go six months (deploy-
ment) without as much as
a glass of wine?" No. I am
asking you to build a for-
tress around your marriage.
What is more important to
you, that glass of wine or
your marriage? You decide.
Another tip is to date
your spouse. Life is so full
and we can neglect our
relationship, friendship and
love life. Decide to date your
spouse. Set aside at least
one night every other week
to go out to dinner, go for
a walk, or take in a movie.

Semi-annual physical fitness assessment coming soon
By MC1(AW) Melissa
Yes, its that time of the year
again. The spring semi-
annual Physical Fitness
Assessment (PFA) is right around
NAS Jacksonville will be hold-
ing the semi-annual PFA the week
of April 16. With approximatelylO
weeks to go, now is the time to ask
yourself "Am I ready?" If not, what
can you do to start preparing?
According to Cmdr. Kathleen
Knight, head of the Naval Hospital
Jacksonville Wellness Center,
"Start preparing now. It can never
be too early. The questions that
we must all answer are, am I will-
ing to put forth the hard work and
effort? And, how can I make it
happen for myself?"
Here are some suggestions
Knight offered for preparing and
improving your overall score:
1. Find a shipmate or a "buddy"
to work out with and get into a
2. Realize that good physical
conditioning can improve your

time during the day. Just drop
down and do a few push-ups or sit-
ups. Just 10-20 here and there,
can add up and you'll be amazed
at the results over a short period
4. Be smart when taking the
PFA by taking the time to look
at the point system of the PFA.
How many times have you heard
someone say they missed getting
an "outstanding" or "excellent" by
just a few points? Keep in mind
that one extra push-up or sit-up
could have made the difference...
sometimes even between a pass or
5. Know your strengths and
weaknesses. This means to sim-
ply know what you're good at and
capitalize on it. Look at the point
values of how you normally com-
plete the PFA, then look at the
total points it takes to get an "out-
6. Lastly, start doing some
weight lifting. This doesn't mean
using major weights. It is best
to build strength using lighter
weights with more repetitions.

mance and must be a part of every
Sailor's life. Lt. Jessica Mohler,

Did you know?
Each fold of the flag of The United States means something
Courtesy of CNRSE
The following is a very inter-
esting, moving and little-
known part of our military
Do you know that at military
funerals, the 21-gun salute stands
for the sum of the numbers in the
year 1776? Have you ever noticed
that the honor guard pays metic-
ulous attention to correctly fold-
ing the American flag exactly 13
times? You probably thought it is
done to symbolize the 13 original
colonies, but we learn something
The first fold of our flag is to
The second fold is a symbol of
our belief in eternal life.
The third fold is made in honor
and remembrance of the veter-
ans departing our ranks who gave
a portion of their lives for the
defense of our country to attain
peace throughout the world.

Boatswain's Mate 3rd Class Marcus Allen and Gunner's Mate Seaman
Scott Favara perform flag folding honors for a funeral service held at the
Calverton National Cemetery in Long Island, N.Y. The Sailors are assigned
to the Navy and Marine Corps Reserve Center (NMCRC) in Amityville, N.Y.
The fourth fold represents our
weaker nature, for as American cit-
izens trusting in God, it is him we
turn in times of peace as well as in
time of war for his divine guidance.
The fifth fold is a tribute to
our country, for in the words of'
Stephen Decatur, "Our country,
in dealing with other countries,
may she always be right; but it is
still our country, right or wrong".
The sixth fold is for where our
hearts lie. It is our heart that we
pledge allegiance to the flag of the
United States of America, and to
the republic for which it stands,
one nation under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all.
The seventh is a tribute to our
Armed Forces, for it is through
the Armed Forces that we protect
our country and our flag against
all her enemies, whether they
be found within or without the
boundaries of our republic.
The eighth fold is a tribute to
the ones who have entered the
valley of the shadow of death,
that we may see the light of day.
The ninth fold is a tribute to
womanhood and mothers. For
it has been through their faith,
their love, loyalty, and devotion
that the character of the men and
women who have made this great
country has been molded.
The 10th fold is a tribute to
the father, for he too has given
his sons and daughters for the

No laughing matter
By Carole Butler
Art Buchwald once said, "Tax reform
is taking the taxes off things that
have been taxed in the past and
putting taxes on things that haven't been
Ever since the Boston Tea Party, taxes
have been a never-ending resource for
humorists, since everyone understands
the joke. Complicated tax forms, W-2s,
1099s, tax brackets, deductions, standard
or itemized; all are designed to separate
you from your money each year on April
15. Fortunately, Armed Forces personnel,
retirees, and their families have ready
access to free tax assistance.
Active duty personnel can find answers
to relevant tax questions online in IRS
Publication 3, Armed Forces' Taxes Guide,
or they can request a hard copy of the pub-
This guide explains military tax issues,
such as filing tax extensions when sta-
tioned outside the United States and
Puerto Rico, deductible expenses for a
permanent change of station, and income
that is tax-free (such as Basic Allowance
for Housing and combat-zone exclusion).
Imminent danger/hostile fire pay, a reen-
listment bonus, and other income are tax
free for combat-zone service. Even if per-
sonnel serve in a combat zone for only
one day of the month, pay for that entire
month is tax-free.
When it comes to filing taxes, some peo-
ple want to fill out their own, so the IRS
web site has all the forms and instruc-
tions needed. "You can download and print
off copies of tax forms and instructions if
you want to do your taxes by hand - the
old stubby-pencil method," said Lt. Cmdr.
Keith Brau of the Office of the Judge
Advocate General, Washington Navy Yard,
The site also has free software and free
e-filing at IRS Free File. "It's becoming
very popular, and the IRS is actively pro-
moting it as the way to go now and for the
future," added Brau.
Other free services at the IRS include
TeleTax, TaxFax, and talking to real peo-
ple over the phone or at an IRS office.
For those who dread filling out tax forms,
whether digitally or with a stubby pen-
cil, the IRS trains volunteers to prepare
taxes for active duty personnel, retirees,
and their dependents, free of charge. The
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
representatives are collateral duty person-
nel on ships, especially aircraft carriers,
and on Navy and Marine Corps bases.
Trained volunteers at our military tax
sites will prepare the tax returns; federal
and state; for free and electronically file
them for free," says Brau. "In a few cases,
we are not able to send returns electroni-
cally, so paper returns must be used."
To have taxes prepared by a VITA rep,
bring complete tax records, such as depen-
dents' Social Security cards, W-2 and 1099
forms from employers and banks, and
paperwork for any special circumstanc-
es, such as selling a home. "For complex
returns, bring a copy of the prior year's tax
return," said Brau.
A thorn in the side of American tax-
payers since the tea-tossing incident, the
idea of paying taxes has been fair game
for American humorists, who have added
some levity to our annual tax rite. But
as Benjamin Franklin observed, "In this
world nothing can be said to be certain
except death and taxes."
NAS Jax Tax Center now open and running
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
have your taxes done.
NAS Jacksonville will once again operate
a tax center to provide free tax prepara-
tion services through a program called
Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA).
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
VITA is the only free tax preparation
service on 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
* active-duty service members and their
* retirees and their dependents.
* reservists on active duty for more than
* reservists within 30 days of demobili-
* reservists involved in pre-mobilization.

* 2006 W-2's and 1099's
* copies of social security cards
* taxpayers) military ID cards
. and any other tax records that might
be relevant, including copies of 2005 tax
returns if available
Couples wishing to file joint returns
should come to the tax center together. If
a spouse is unavailable, the spouse prepar-
ing the return will need to bring an IRS
Power of Attorney (Form 2848 available at
www.irs.gov) A general power of attorney
from the base legal office will not suffice.

TFIA continues work
to improve IA process
By Lt. Justin Cole
Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs
Rear Adm. Sonny Masso chaired
a Task Force Individual
Augmentation (TFIA) meet-
ing Jan. 16-18, which was aimed at
further improving the Individual
Augmentation (IA) process, and
reviewing current policies and initia-
Masso, who has led TFIA since its
inception, directed the review of the
entire IA process to include detail-
ing, training, and benefits for Sailors
and their families, of both the reserve
and active components. The review
was part of a periodic assessment to
ensure that procedures previously put
in place were having the desired out-
come for the Sailors affected by them.
"We stood up in April of 2006 to do
three things," said Masso. "First, we
took a look at the sourcing and notifi-
cation process. Then we took a look at
the training pipeline to get our Sailors
ready to go into harms way. Finally,
we wanted to make sure we were tak-
ing care of the families of those who
were serving as IA's, and make sure
they knew how much we valued their
TFIA is made up of senior officers
and enlisted personnel from vari-
ous commands who have a stake in
the IA process. Members of Naval
Expeditionary Combat Command,
Fleet Forces Command, Navy
Personnel Command and the Chief
of Naval Personnel contribute to the
"The ultimate goal of the task force
is to work ourselves out of a job. If
we are able to get these processes
ingrained into the way we do business
on a daily basis, then the task force
would no longer be needed. I would
consider that a big success for us and
a bigger success for the IA's," said
Recent meetings of the task force
have focused on establishing initia-
tives aimed at taking care of the
Sailor's families and careers. Award
points, duty preference, and advance-
ment exam flexibility were some of the
initiatives announced in NavAdmin
273/06. The original message, accord-
ing to Masso, was not meant to be
the final word, but rather a starting
"The initiatives have been in place
for several months and we have got-
ten some good feedback from the
fleet," said Masso. "We want to keep
reviewing the process and the incen-
tives we are offering to the Sailors
taking these jobs to make sure we
really are doing the right thing by
them. If there is a way to improve the
process, we owe it to everyone to look
Following the TFIA conference last
week, a list of proposals was gener-
ated to modify and add certain incen-
tives to IA's. These initiatives will be
announced in the upcoming weeks.
"We want to make sure that we
don't exclude one Sailor who is doing
this important duty and legitimate-
ly deserves these incentives," said
Since TFIA stood up last year,
NECC and Expeditionary Combat
Readiness Command (ECRC) have
also come online as the one-stop
source for IA and family readiness
issues. NECC integrates all war-
fighting requirements for expedition-
ary combat and combat support ele-
ments. This transformation allows
for standardized training, manning
and equipping of Sailors who will par-
ticipate in maritime security opera-
tions and the global war on terrorism
as part of the joint force. They are
involved in every aspect of an IA's
professional development as they
get ready to deploy, but are also the
source for family information.
While the IA process continues to
become more familiar to Navy person-
nel on a daily basis, Masso says it is
TFIA who deserves much of the credit
for its success.
"I have never been more proud of
a group of people in my life," he said.
"From the very beginning, they broke
down the processes that bound the
way we did business for years. They
rewrote the book on getting results
in a timely manner and they did it
all while asking themselves only one
question - 'What is the right thing to
do for these Sailors?'"

and how to volunteer, visit the NPC
Web site at http://www.npc.navy.mil/.
The ECRC hotline can be reached at
1-877-364-4302 and was established

"We don't want any Sailors
to become disenfranchised
with the educational opportu-
nities available to them due
to duty station location," said
Capt. William Dewes, com-
manding officer of the Center
for Personal and Professional
Development. "Through this
policy change, leadership
is showing through their
actions that the Navy doesn't
undervalue Sailors who are
i king on IA assignments.
Is it more challenging? Yes
it is, but the main thing is
we are providing yet another

Sailors must use Tuition

this new initiative of opening
NCPACE to foreign-deployed

BU2 Justin Troutman, an
IA out of Atsugi, Japan, who

Phoenix, Afghanistan, in the
J7 Engineering Department
as part of the new Navy's
Trainers, said NCPACE fits
perfectly with the environ-

"NCPACE is great for this
location because it does not
require Internet access," he
said. "That way, when I go

The Captain said Sailors
who are going on IA assign-
ments can go ahead and
register for courses through
their local Navy College
Office prior to deploying or
continue courses they are
currently enrolled in, but
cautions there is a downside
to being proactive.
"I am always in favor
of anything that can bring
education to Sailors, and we
encourage Sailors to sign
up for their college courses
before they go on an IA," he
said. "The downside is that
there is so much uncertainty
about what IA assignments
will require of Sailors. Before
they are in theater, they
have no way of knowing if
their command's mission
will allow them the time, if
learning materials, comput-
ers or proctors will be avail-
able to them, and if they will
be too mentally and physi-
cally exhausted. All that
being said, signing up before
deploying is a positive step
toward taking charge of their

ness committee where he co-created and
implemented the Trauma Combat Casualty
Care Course for hospital corpsmen and
Tactical Medicine Courses designed to
increase awareness and confidence of
Sailors deploying in support of the global
war on terrorism.
While serving as a member of the com-
mand assessment team, Echon assisted

Echon is recognized within his work
center and throughout the command as
an innovative, creative and hard-charg-
ing shipmate who demonstrates an impec-
cable work ethic. He has received numer-
ous awards including Naval Hospital
Jacksonville Sailor of the Quarter, third
Quarter, 2006, the hospital's First In
Service Award and the We Care Award for
providing outstanding customer service.
His military bearing, demeanor and impec-
cable appearance makes him a standout
among his peers. -
This young petty officer is an extreme-
ly valuable asset for Naval Hospital
Jacksonville and Navy medicine.
Fortunately, Echon is continuing his stel-
lar career in Navy medicine. "I recently
got selected for the Seaman to Admiral-21
Officer Program," he said. "Right now my
goal is to go through it and finish my nurs-
ing degree. In the future, I plan on special-
izing either in anesthesia or critical care."
Hospital Junior SOY to serve at White
Junior SOY for the hospital core facility
is CS2(SW/AW) Sonny Lalatag from the
In addition to his recent selection as the
Naval Hospital Jacksonville Junior SOY,
he was just selected for a duty assignment
at the White House in Washington, DC.
His accomplishments have earned him
a reputation among his supervisors as a
top-notch and multi-talented go-getter
who displays innovative expertise in all
facets of his rating. As the department's
purchasing agent and supply petty offi-
cer, Lalatag adeptly identifies material
requirements of the hospital galley and
has procured $120,000 of new galley equip-
ment. Further, he ensures all equipment
remains fully operational.
Lalatag was a .driving force behind
numerous special events held at the com-
mand including the 2006 command picnic,
a Surgeon General of the Navy staff lun-
cheon, a TRICARE network provider col-
laboration breakfast and the Navy birth-
He is an active member of the Second
Class Petty Officer Association and par-
ticipates in community projects including
Habitat for Humanity and the Adopt-a-
School program for the Central Riverside
Elementary School. As a proven leader
and a creative pacesetter, Lalatag exem-
plifies Navy values with his strong moral
character, esprit de corps; and continued
, Lalatag is excited about working at the
White House. As he's never even been to
Washington, DC, or the White House he
said, "I'm a little nervous but I'm going to
give it a shot." He said he looks forward to
meeting the current president and the next
one as well.
Lalatag described the selection process
as very involved. He said it takes six to
nine months and involves a review of ser-
vice records, interviews by the command
master chief from the White House Navy
unit and a detailed background check by
the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.
He was proud to have been selected on his
first time to apply as many people who
eventually made it applied up to three
Lalatag said of his selection as the hos-
pital's Junior SOY, "One of the greatest
joys of being a Sailor is the opportunity
to get recognized on what you do in your
command. The award means a lot to me
because it represents my work and also
the type of leadership that I have in my
department as well as the whole naval hos-
pital leadership. The award is a culmina-
tion of my hard work and dedication to my
job in the Navy and all my volunteer work
outside the Navy."
As to long-term goals, Lalatag hopes to
either make master chief petty officer or
become an officer.
Lalatag grew up in Possaic, N.J. He
and his wife CS2 Estella Lalatag, also a
culinary specialist who is currently at sea
aboard USS Gettysburg, reside in Orange
Park. Concluding words of wisdom from
Lalatag are, "Always do more than is
required of you."
Blue Jacket of the Year loves patient
The Blue Jacket of the Year for the hospi-
tal is also from the Nutrition Department.
CSSN Jason Daniels serves as the patient
food service cook on watch.
He said his selection is "really an honor."
Daniels demonstrates his love for the culi-
nary arts by making sure every patient
receives the highest quality food one would
expect in a fine quality restaurant.
Daniels described his job as plan-
ning meals for about 30 patients a day,
making sure that their specific dietary
requirements and medical restrictions are
addressed. Working with the hospital dieti-
cian and three other cooks he gets the job
done. He said it is sometimes challenging
to make food taste good when the patient
can't eat such things as salt or sugars.
He said the best part of his job is the
patient interaction he gets when he deliv-
ers the meals. He said he enjoys meet-
ing the patients and talking about their
backgrounds, where they're from, etc., just
helping cheer them up while they're here.
Beyond his military duties, Daniels
teamed up with fellow staff to spearhead
the Harvest Food Drive and he works for
the Habitat for Humanity and the Clothes
Closet-all charitable organizations. He
also has helped serve meals at a local
Daniels is a superior performer whose
accomplishments have set the standard
and rightfully earned him the respect and
confidence of the entire chain of command.
Daniels plans to cross-rate to the mas-
ter-at-arms rating and someday become a
master chief petty officer.

PERSPECTIVE: Divorce-proofing a Navy marriage - Part two
From Page 10
Divorce is too large a topic for two small
articles. However, with a 70 percent
divorce rate among enlisted and a growing
rate among officers it is a topic we cannot
ignore or nor can we hope our marriage
will be different without a plan. We beat
the odds by deciding and working to build
a strong marriage.
Many bases offer marriage classes and
counseling. Check with your Fleet and
Family Support Center. Don't forget the
chaplain's office and the free marriage
retreats offered by CREDO. Local church-
es, synagogues and mosques often have
marriage classes and counseling as well. In
addition, there is no shortage of books writ-
ten on marriage. Avail yourself of every
opportunity to learn from those sources to
build your strong, successful and fulfilling

Warfighters have a
new ally in the bat-
tle to safely land
their aircraft and helicop-
ters in almost any weather.
Developed under the
leadership of the Aircraft
Launch and Recovery
office, the MORIAH Wind
System (MWS) provides the
detailed wind information
needed by the warfighters
to help them make critical
decisions in air operations,
combat, navigation, tactical
planning and firefighting.
"MORIAH is a state-of-
the-art system that pro-
vides digital wind speed
and direction informa-
tion, including crosswinds
and headwinds for use on
ships and shore stations,"
said Capt. Stephen Rorke,
the Aircraft Launch and
Recovery Equipment pro-
gram manager, PMA 251.
"MORIAH will replace the
current Wind Measuring
and Indicating System,
which is obsolete."

achieve their financial goals.
"As part of CNIC's commitment to the fleet, fighter, and
family, initiatives like Military Saves assists us in teach-
ing and advising our Sailors and families to manage their
finances," said Commander, Navy Installations Command
Vice Adm. Robert Conway. "Education and personalized
assistance enable families to make positive changes in
their financial fitness. A Sailor that doesn't have to worry
about financial affairs is a Sailor who is better able to
support the Navy mission. Personal financial readiness is
critical to unit readiness."
Over the coming year, the Military Saves Campaign will
provide saving tips, strategies, awareness and initiatives
through a variety of mediums that will provide Sailors
and their families with savings tools to help them reach
Military Saves Week, Feb. 25 - March 4, is one of the
initiatives sponsored by the Military Saves Campaign.
The week-long event is a Combined Federal Campaign-
style pledge drive that encourages Sailors and their fami-
lies to make a commitment to take financial actions such
as saving, investing or reducing debt.
During Military Saves Week the service member and/or
family member makes a commitment to save and build
their personal wealth by enrolling as a Military Saver and
setting a savings goal for the year. Enroll at www.ameri-
casaves.org/national/mili.tary.asp. Commands Navy-wide
are encouraged to hold special events during Military
Saves Week by utilizing installation resources: FFSCs,
banks and credit unions, Morale, Welfare and Recreation
programs and services, senior enlisted advisors, exchange
and commissary services, and spouse clubs.
The Military Saves Campaign was developed as part of a
memorandum of understanding between the Department
of Defense and the Consumer Federation of America
(CFA) to bring.America Saves, the parent program, to the
military. CFA is a federation of consumer education, advo-
cacy and cooperative organizations committed to advanc-
ing the consumer interest.
"Our troops and families deserve the very best chance to
get ahead financially, and turning our collective attention
to getting out of debt and saving money is crucial to offer-
ing that chance," said Sarah Shirley, director of the CFA
Military Saves campaign. "When everybody - leadership,
corporate partners, service members, children - does one
positive financial action during Military Saves Week, it
gets easier to make good choices in the future."
