Chief of Naval Personnel
Vice Adm. J.C. Harvey
Jr. flew into Jacksonville
Feb. 21 for his most recent
fleet visit, which included tours
of NSB Kings Bay, Ga., NAS
Jacksonville and NS Mayport.
While at NAS Jacksonville,
Harvey met separately with the
base commanding officers and
command master chiefs (CMCs).
While meeting the CMCs, he
described his vision to improve
total readiness by sizing, shap-
ing and stabilizing the force.
"This means getting us from
where we are today to about
322,000, and getting that right,
not just in terms of the number,
but in the types of Sailors and
the knowledge, skills and abili-
ties they have," he said.
Harvey addressed several inter-

nal and external factors influenc-
ing and impacting the Navy's
total force that include changing
needs and a changing market.
"On average only 30 percent of
high school seniors are eligible to
join our Navy," he said.


"This means our recruiting
mission will get harder. The
likelihood for a person to enlist
in the armed forces today is
lower than it has ever been."

This is an artist's rendition of what the new state-of-the-art facility that will house multiple
squadrons of the MH-60R multiple mission helicopter also known as the "Romeo" at NAS Jax.


(NAVFAC Southeast), the $73 million-plus

provide hangar space for multiple squad-

ous models of Seahawk helicopters at NAS
Jax by 2015.
"Having a new helicopter hangar here is
a great step forward for NAS Jacksonville,"
said NAS Jacksonville Commanding
Officer Capt. Chip Dobson. "The Navy is
doing a lot with not only weapon systems
acquisition, but is making sure all of the
support pieces for the weapon systems are
also in place.
"Ultimately, what this hangar will do is
make the weapon system better because
the people that are operating it, be they in
the maintenance or flying side, have the
right type of facility to allow them to the
their jobs better. There is no substitute for
being in a state-of-the-art building that is
used for the purpose that it was designed
for," he added.

NAS Jax celebrates African-American heritage

Rebecca KruckW,'' - , 'EJ. . .


In 1518, King Charles
I of Spain sanctioned
the African slave trade.
When slavery was finally
abolished in 1870, at least
10 million Africans had
been removed from their
homes and forced to work
in America for little or no
wages.
Throughout the mid
to late-1900s African-
Americans struggled for
equal rights in the United
States. Names such as
Thurgood Marshall, Rosa
Parks, Martin Luther King,
Jr., and Malcolm X are still
celebrated each February
for the strides they made to
attain equality for blacks.
Each year, the Multi-
Cultural Awareness
Committee at NAS
Jacksonville hosts the
African-American Heritage
Luncheon in recognition of
African-American History

the journey from slavery to

broad topic ... it has been

Looking back in time...


ON THE HOMEFRONT


Like beauty, perfection is in



the eyes of the beholder


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


B before I tell you how
my husband, Dustin's
head grew. as large
as a parade float last week
at a wedding, I need to tell
you about the man getting
married. John is a friend
from our first sea-going
squadron, where intense
friendships are historically
forged between new mem-
bers. It's a process similar
to strangers being stuck in
an elevator and exiting life-
long friends.
I first met John at an
unofficial party with other
spouses. John was the new-
est member of the squad-
ron. Our husbands had
already met John at work,
;so before John arrived, the
;other wives and I asked for
'details.
"Is he married?" we
asked.
"No."
"Darn. Well, is he fun?"
"He doesn't drink," they
said. "Like, never. He has
never had a drink, ever."
Then, glancing at us, siz-
ing up the atmosphere, one
lof the guys said, "and he
!knows every show tune."
The room suddenly grew
,quiet, after what seemed
.like a record player com-
ing to a scratching halt. A
Navy pilot who has never
tasted alcohol and knows


all the Broadway songs?
They couldn't be serious.
Sure, we were stereotyp-
ing, but so far, our defini-
tion of a Navy pilot was our
husbands: loud, sometimes
obnoxious, beer-loving guys
who would choose NASCAR
over Broadway. I'm not say-
ing every Navy pilot is like
this; just our husbands.
John, therefore, was an
anomaly.
I bonded with John
instantly. While my hus-
band shared inside jokes
with the other guys, John
talked to me about movies
and music. John was the
clown at my son's birthday
party. (Yes, my husband
has been a clown, too, but
never intentionally.) And,
get this, John knows how to
swing dance!
But John never had a
serious woman in his life,
and that concerned me. A
guy like John should be
married, I thought. Then,
a few years later, John
introduced us to Margaret.
I called my spouse-club
friends, who by this time
were already scattered
across the country, and told
them the great news. John
had finally found the right
girl (she swing dances,
too!).
So Dustin was a swords-
man at John and Margaret's
wedding last weekend,
and at Margaret's request,

Dustin was the one who
smacked her in the rear
with his sword and called
out, "Welcome to the Navy."
You see, Margaret has a
special affection for my hus-
band and thinks he must be
"perfect." But Margaret has
never lived with Dustin.
Later, at the reception, I
was standing alone, feeling
uncomfortable in my post-
partum body and clothes
that don't fit, when a group
of young girls beside me
started whispering.
They were wearing
dresses with thin spaghet-
ti straps that after having
three children and nursing
two, I'll never wear again.
Their made-up faces were
smooth and had no creases
around the eyes. They had
long legs and high heels.
And, on second glance, I
realized they were staring
at my husband on the other
side of the room in his spiffy
Navy uniform. The giggling
girls ran over to have their
pictures taken with Dustin.
They hung on him and
posed. They laughed
like school children. And
although Dustin's face was
red with embarrassment, I
knew his head was inflating
to irreversible proportions.
The gaggle of girls ran
back to their places near
me and formed a huddle.
"He's so hot," one of them
said.


"You should go talk to
him," her friends encour-
aged. "I haven't seen him
with anyone."
I laughed and the girls
looked over, their smiles
turning to shock. "Is that
your husband?" they asked.
I nodded.
The girls had been fooled
by Dustin's uniform. It's a
hazard as old as the mili-
tary. Women see a man
in uniform, and it doesn't
matter who he really is,
the women already have
an idea that he is "hot" like
Tom Cruise in Top Gun or
a romantic like Richard
Gere in An Officer and a
Gentleman.
Uniforms make all service
members look identically
handsome and refined. But
it's just an illusion. Just ask
their wives. For beneath
those well-pressed jackets
and shiny shoes, Navy men
are as different as, well,
as different as Dustin and
John.
And perfection truly is in
the eyes of the beholder...
so long as that "beholder"
doesn't live with you.

Navy reaches for new




end strength by '08


From Chief of Naval
Personnel Public Affairs


With the Navy's fleet of the
future established, and see-
ing cost-savings platforms
being delivered to the fleet, the Navy
announced Feb. 5 the plan to reach an
end strength number of 328,4000 for
active duty and 67,800 for reserves in
2008, reaching a floor of approximate-
ly 322,000 for active duty and 68,000
for reserves in 2013.
"Now that we have future fleet
defined - 313 ships and about 3,800
aircraft - we are able to define the
work and identify requirements," said
Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm.
John Harvey Jr. "I'm confident that
our end strength number is right,
and that the number translates to
the capabilities we need to do the
missions that the nation expects the
Navy to do."
By partnering with the Navy
enterprises, there is a much better
understanding of the work require-
ment across platforms and jobs, at
sea and ashore. In addition, savings
from BRAC decision 10 years ago,


and the delivery of manpower saving
platforms to the fleet are making a
difference in how many Sailors are
needed to do the job. As platforms
change - retiring older, manpower
and maintenance intensive ships and
aircraft - requirements for Sailors are
changing.
"Our future carriers will have about
1,000 less Sailors required between
the ship and air wing to deliver the
same capability of today's carriers,"
Harvey said. "In our 313-ship Navy,
you have significant changes in plat-
forms themselves that enable down-
sizing to continue without giving
away capability or making a 24-hour
workday for the Sailor."
Even while end strength comes
down over the next year until it
steadies in 2013, the Navy's recruit-
ing missions will grow. With natural
attrition and retention figures, as well
as the need for an increasingly skilled
workforce, a strong recruiting helps to
shape a stronger Navy of the future.
"We learned a lesson in the 90's
that we cannot lower recruiting when
we're downsizing, because we must
pay attention to how we shape the


force of the future," Harvey added.
"We had historic re-enlistment rates
after 9/11, but that was a retention
rate that couldn't be sustained over
the long haul. This is part of sustain-
ing the force. We want to keep the
mid-grade petty officer and the right
skill sets who really deliver the goods
for us at sea, in terms of the blend of
the experience, leadership, capabil-
ity."
Seeing the end strength go down
until 2013 does not mean that there
will be large cuts in today's enlisted
force.
"You are going to have a career
with us. We may have rating con-
versions, but nobody is going to lose
a career who has the capability to
serve, who wants to serve, and who
should serve," Harvey stated.
Shaping the Reserve Component
is a focus for this year, as their sus-
tained contributions have been an
operational reserve for the active com-
ponent. Restructuring the Reserves
includes looking for global war on ter-
rorism heavy ratings and individuals
with a level of experience.


Free tax services at the NAS Jax Tax Center


From NLSO


The new year is upon us! Even if
you have already broken your
resolutions, you can still knock
out an important item on your "to do"
list by coming to the NAS Jacksonville
Tax Center to have your taxes done.
NAS Jacksonville will once again
operate a tax center to provide free
tax preparation services through a
program called Voluntary Income Tax
Assistance (VITA). This program saves
Sailors hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars they might otherwise pay to get
their taxes done, and obtains millions
of dollars in tax refunds for Sailors.
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 pressure Sailors to pay high
additional rates to get their refunds
more quickly. VITA is run entirely


by volunteers. These volunteers 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 dependents.
* retirees and their dependents.
* reservists on active duty for more
than 30 days.
* reservists within 30 days of demo-
bilization.
* reservists involved in pre-mobili-
zation.
What to bring to the tax center:
* 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
Deploying spouses:
Couples wishing to file joint returns


should come to the tax center togeth-
er. If a spouse is unavailable, the
spouse preparing 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.
Where and when:
The center will be located at build-
ing 13 at the main gate, next to the
Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society
office.
The VITA Tax Center will open its
doors Jan. 22 (the same day that W-
2s will be available online for active
duty personnel.)
The hours of operation will be:
- Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m.
- Saturday - by appointment only
For more information, call 542-

VS-31 conducts training

exercises in Guam
By Lt. Gregory Lubeck
VS-31 PAO
On Feb. 11, the USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) Strike
Group conducted training flights near Guam during
their transit to the U.S. Central Command Theater
of operations. Leading the way were the "Topcats" of VS-31.
Topcat aircrews and Carrier Air Wing Nine (CVW-9) honed
their aerial skills and weapons employment proficiency
prior to reporting to U.S. Fifth Fleet.
In addition to maintaining carrier landing proficiency,
aircrews were able to take full advantage of the vast array
of unique opportunities afforded by operating around the
Eastern Pacific island. The team was able to conduct live
air-to-ground weapons delivery and non-traditional intel-
ligence, surveillance and reconnaissance training. The
squadron also sent one of their aircrew ashore for interop-
erability experience with joint tactical air controllers from
CVW-9 as part of this robust training period.
Capt. Sterling Gilliam, commander, CVW-9, stressed the
importance of these training missions as part of the prepa-
ration for the next over-land flying CVW-9 does in support-
ing ground troops in combat. The Guam operations lasted
four days, and all flights were modeled after expected mis-
sions in the Fifth Fleet area of operations.
After leaving the Guam operating area, the strike group
took full advantage of no-fly transit days by conducting
training sessions, reviewing combat-tactics and performing
ordnance-handling operations. The honing of these skills is
critical to ensure every member of the carrier strike group is
prepared and completely ready for any eventuality.
VS-31 continues to maintain their six S-3B Vikings to
keep them in combat ready status. With high tempo opera-
tions and the complexity of its associated systems, keeping
the Viking battle-ready is no easy task. Daily troubleshoot-
ing by both maintainers and aircrew is vital to the jet's
overall condition. "The guys on the flight deck really work
hard, and all credit is due to the maintainers for keep-
ing the jets in the air." said Lt. Cmdr. Fernando Garcia,
VS-31 operations officer and former maintenance officer.
The Topcats expect to maintain their present momentum
throughout deployment until they return to Jacksonville
sometime later this year.

NavHosp Jax's Red Dress Day event


raises women
By Marsha Childs
NHJ Marketing I


N aval Hospital Jacksonville cel-
ebrated Red Dress Day Feb.
22 to raise women's awareness
about heart disease and its risk fac-
tors. Wellness Center Department
Head Cmdr. Kathleen Knight, who
coordinated the heart healthy pro-
gram in the Pharmacy waiting area,
helped staff pass out red dress pins-
a national symbol for women and
heart disease awareness.
Heart disease is the number one
killer of American women. In fact,
women over age 45 are eight times
more likely to die from heart dis-
ease than from breast cancer. The
Wellness Center's Leading Petty
Officer, HM2 Eric Demler said, "Our
outreach program promotes heart
health and makes patients aware of
the risk factors associated with heart
disease."
Atherosclerosis is the most com-
mon cause of heart disease and occurs
when the coronary arteries narrow
and harden over time. These are the
arteries that carry blood and oxygen
to the heart.
There are risk factors associated
with heart disease you can't change
like a family history of heart disease,
ethnicity and age. Children of par-
ents with heart disease are more like-
ly to be affected. African-American
women have one-third more heart dis-
ease and twice the death rate from
heart attack. Women over age 55 are
at higher risk.
The good news is there are steps
you can take to reduce your risk fac-
tors for heart disease. Smoking or
breathing other people's smoke can
cause heart disease and lung cancer.
When you eliminate tobacco usage,
you greatly reduce your risks. Stay
in shape. If you are more than 20

five years. Heart-healthy eating such
as cutting fat in your diet, daily phys-
ical activity, controlling diabetes and

which may include taking medica-
tions, can help.
Other steps you can take to pro-
tect your heart include managing the
stress in your life by learning relax-
ation techniques and being physically
active. Check your blood pressure
once a year. Your doctor will work
with you to keep it under control.
Include physical activity for 30 min-
utes each day if possible. Limit your
alcohol intake to one drink per day.
Ask your doctor about taking a low-
dose aspirin every day, which may
reduce your risk for heart disease.
According to the American Heart
Association, women tend to ignore
the symptoms associated with a heart
attack. These not only include chest
pain but also pain that moves to the
shoulder, neck, jaw, back or arms.
Irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea,
vomiting, shortness of breath occurring


with or without chest pain, and stom-
ach pain may signal a heart attack.
Early intervention is critical, but most
women generally ignore the symptoms.
If you or someone you're with has chest
pain, especially with one or more of the
other signs, don't wait longer than a
few minutes (no more than five) before
calling for help. Call 9-1-1 ... Get to a
hospital right away!
Naval Hospital Jacksonville Family
Medicine Department will offer a
Healthy Heart Class every second
Tuesday of the month from 9:30-11:30
a.m. and every fourth Wednesday of
the month from 1-3 p.m., in the hos-
pital's Family Medicine Conference
Room. The first class is scheduled for
March 28. To sign up for the program

From the Naval Postgraduate
School Department
The Naval Postgraduate School
Department of Operations
Research is currently accepting

ing Master of Systems Analysis (MSA)
degree offered in partnership with
the Chief of Naval Operations and
the Naval Education and Training
Command (NETC).
The MSA Spring 2007-09 degree
program begins March 29. The class
size is limited to 25 students. The
program is targeted to Navy unre-
stricted line officers but is open to
other qualified uniformed officers and
federal government civilians on a seat
availability basis. This program is
designed to prepare students to apply
critical thinking and analytical skills
to support key decisions in both oper-
ational and staff assignments.
The MSA program is tailored to


students whose career paths do not
allow them to enroll in a full-time
graduate education program and is
tuition funded by NETC (students
must purchase their own textbooks).
To be eligible, a student must have a
baccalaureate degree (BA or BS) with
a GPA of 2.2 or better, have taken
calculus with a C or better and have a

students have great flexibility to do
their coursework at times of their
choosing during each week. The VTE


classes meet for a three-hour session
on Thursday from 8-11 a.m. (Pacific
time) each week.
Students .who successfully complete
the program earn a MSA degree and
a certificate in systems analysis. A
second certificate is also earned in
a systems analysis context option
track approved by the student's spon-
sor that currently include defense
resource management, information
systems technology, space systems,
antisubmarine warfare and infor-
mation systems and operations. The
MSA is a professional degree awarded

New chief of police at NAS Jax


By MC1(SW/AW) Heather Ewton
Assistant Editor


The NAS Jacksonville Security
Department announced this month
that Lt. Randy Gommer has proudly
taken the reigns as the new chief of police..
In 1974, Gommer enlisted into the
Marine Corps to serve in the Marine Corps
Security Forces Atlantic.
During the mid-80's, the Joint Chiefs-of-
Staff decided to upgrade the security train-
ing programs for the Armed Forces due
to the continuous and growing terrorist
threats to our world.
They established the Marine Corps Cadre
Program which was a group of 62 person-
nel who were hand-picked to become the
Naval and Marine Corps Law Enforcement
Training Program instructors.
These instructors were tasked with going
to naval installations world-wide and
training personnel in Auxiliary Security
Force (ASF) measures so that they would
be able to step in and assist with the naval
security side of the house.
Gommer was one of thbse soldiers, and
as a plankowner of the program, he took
part in the training of the very first ASF
teams at NAS Jacksonville.
He retired from active duty in 1997 as a
gunnery sergeant after 23 years of service.
Following retirement, Gommer began
working as a civilian but realized some-
thing was missing.
After much thought, he decided to once
again don a uniform, but this time it wasn't
camouflaged, it was a federal police depart-
ment patrolman's uniform.
In 1998, Gommer was hired as a patrol-
man at NAS Jacksonville and from there,
he began his rapid climb up the ladder of
rank.
"I did my time on the street and on the
gates. When I saw a problem that I felt
needed to be addressed, I brought the pro-
posal of change along with a solution to
my superiors. I never had a problem get-
ting my thoughts out on to the table," said
Gommer.
His perceptiveness did. not go unnoticed.
After only one short year, he was quickly
promoted to a corporal/lead officer in 1999.
A promotion to sergeant followed in 2000
and in 2002, Gommer was promoted to
lieutenant.
He then took on tougher internal collat-
eral duties that included the departmental
air show coordinator in 2000, 2004 and
2006 which is no small feat.
Organizing the security precautions,
traffic enforcement, outside agency respon-
sibilities, gate operations, inspections and
not to mention anti-terrorism measures
and security manpower had to fall into the

of Police Randy Gommer is proud to lead the
team of talented officers who dedicate them-
selves to ensuring the safety and security of
the base and its people.
hands of somebody during the air shows
and Gommer effortlessly took on those
responsibilities.
He also filled the position as acting chief
of police when called upon in the absence
of the former chief of police.
His new duties will be to oversee the
entire law enforcement mission of the team
at NAS Jacksonville.
"We want to be a model department
for all other agencies to follow and we
strive every day to achieve that goal. The
group of men and women serving in this
agency are a superb group of profession-
als and they will continue to provide the
best, possible service to the people of NAS
Jacksonville," remarked Gommer.
The new police chief is completely expe-
rienced in all of his new duties. He has
provided leadership and training to the
NAS Jacksonville Security Department,
the local outside agencies and even to the
public.
"We have established a liaison with the
outside agencies and now have them com-
ing to us to see where they can help us.
That is what we wanted. We also wanted a
working relationship which let them know
that the level of professionalism, the law
enforcement assets and the things that we
have are things that they could draw from
us and utilize and at the same time how we
could benefit from their help and services,"
recalled Gommer about taking the first
steps to bridging a liaison with the local


RESTRIC


Jacksonville emergency departments.
Over the years, Gommer's decision to
continue to serve his nation has proven to
be the road he was destined to follow.
"There were other departments and agen-
cies that I had a lot of respect for and they
had thrown offers on the table for me. People
asked why I was passing those offers up.
The more I though about it, with all of the
training that I have received and all of my
military experience, I felt that as a veter-
an, I was bringing more to the table," noted
Gommer. "I know what its like to be deployed
and I understand what it's like to go through
family separation."
"I understand what everybody who is
wearing a uniform today is doing and what
they represent. I think that is something
that very few Americans can relate to. I
decided that I was going to come back to
serve and protect under that aspect," he
added.
"I wanted to serve those who are doing
what I did for 23 years and I am doing it
with a group of people who understand and
feel the same way about it that I do."


I


The men and women of the NAS
Jacksonville Security Department work
and train hard every day toward a very
important mission.
"Our primary mission is undoubtedly to
protect the warfighter and provide that
asset to them. We understand what is
going on in the world and to protect what
the warfighter has left behind in our hands
and that is their families. That piece of
mind is priceless," he said.
"Knowing that we are part of the team
of assets at NAS Jacksonville who assist
in keeping the service members free from
worrying about the welfare of their fami-
lies is something that we are very proud
of. We are continuing our growth through
training and ensuring that the people of
NAS Jacksonville are secure and safe."
Gommer and his wife of 30 years, Vickie
have a son, Wade, who recently complet-
ed criminal justice coursework at Florida
Metropolitan University. He has plans to
follow in his father's footstep by serving
his nation and enlisting into the military
under the law enforcement field.

The Navy Chevrolet honored the -IS-15 "Red Lions" at the Orbitz 300.


By MC 1 Eric Dehm
N R D lI k ,:n .. l - r ' ,li. - i vI ,,rr

T he Navy No. 88 car kicked
S off the 2007 Busch Series
Season Feb. 17 at the
Daytona International Speedway
finishing 36th in the Orbitz 300.
If you watched the race on TV.
you may have noticed that mixed
among the Navy pit crew were
Sailor- from the Jacksonville
area.
Sailors from Navy Recruiting
Ditrict (NRDI Jacksonville. as
well as local commands, were
selected as honorary pit crew mem-
bers for the race and were able to
see the preparation and strategy
that goes into a NASCAR event.
"I never knew how much Went
into NASCAR racing," said
BM1(SW) Andrew Tinsley of the
USS John L. Hall (FFG-32) home-
ported at NS Mayport. "I always
though that they just drove
around and stopped to get gas,
but I can tell you, I became a fan
today. Seeing the race first hand
and:being in the pits has really
been one of my career highlights."
Even before the race began,
the day was full of surprises for
the Sailors. Prior to the race,
American Idol contestant Kelly
Pickler sang the national anthem
and then decided to stop by to take
photos with the Sailors in the pits.
Earlier in the day the Navy VIP
Rear Adm. Stanley Bozin, direc-
tor, Office of Budget, was invited
to speak to the owner of the Navy
car, Dale Earnhardt Jr. This is
the second year the Navy car has
been owned by Earnhardt Jr.'s JR
Motorsports team. This season
Shane Huffman is driving the race
car.
"I'm looking forward to racing
for the Navy today and for this
season," said Huffman. "We've got
a great team, great cars and I feel
really good about our chances."
Huffman qualified in the 40th
position and was running as high
as 27th before running into the
aftermath of a multi-car crash.
The Navy car tried to navigate
the wreckage but another driver
ran into Huffman, forcing the car
into the garage for 30 laps and
out of contention.
Despite that bad luck the hon-
borary pit crew was happy with

the way the car ran.
"That was too bad, man," said
AS2(AW) Hanif Bent of NRD
Jacksonville. "He was moving
up towards the froilt and to have
something like that happen and
it's not even your fault? That's
just too bad."
"I think we are going to do good
this year though," added Tinsley.
"I'm definitely going to keep an
eye on how Shane does."
Huffman followed up his 36th-
place showing at Daytona with a
21st-place finish at the California
Speedway Feb. 25. The next race
for the Navy car will be in Mexico
City, on Sunday. Busch Series
races will be broadcast on ESPN2
for the 2007 season.
While the race was the main
focus, it wasn't the only thing
going on for the Navy at Daytona.
The SEAL Accelerator Tour,
NRD's newest display, debuted
in the fan area outside the track.
,The display, manned by NRD
Jacksonville recruiters, included
a 20-foot cargo net climb, pull-
up bars and a digital photo area
along with a walk through dis-
play that shows SEAL videos and
includes two life size mockups of
a SEAL and diver in full gear.
Huffman also stopped by for an
autograph session with his fans
and Sailors at the Navy display
on race day.
Between the recruiting displays
that will be shown at certain
tracks and the growing popular-
ity of the No. 88 car, 2007 looks
to be a banner year for the Navy
NASCAR team.

CNO to Sailors: IAs critical to war on terror


B Chief of Naval
Operations Public Affairs


In a recent visit to observe indi-
vidual augmentee (IA) training
at Camp McCrady, S.C., Chief of
Naval Operations Adm. Mike Mullen
made it clear that IA deployments
will continue and that they are criti-
cal to the Navy's efforts in the war on
terror.
"I see this as a long-term commit-
ment by the Navy," he said. "I'm anx-
ious to pitch in as much as we pos-
sibly can, for the duration of this war.
Not only can we do our share, but [we
can] take as much stress off those who
are deploying back-to-back, home one
year, deployed one year and now are
on their third or fourth deployment."
The Navy currently has more than
10,000 Sailors in IA duty assign-
ments all over the world. Personnel
officials estimate that nearly half the
4,300 Sailors serving in Iraq are IA's.
Mullen said he does not expect those
figures to change dramatically in the
next year or so.
"Obviously, we can't predict the
future with any certainty, but I don't
see the need for Navy talent in the IA
world going down any time soon," he
said.
The CNO has pushed to expand the
Navy's contribution on the ground in
the Central Command area of respon-
sibility, stressing that the war on ter-
ror is a national fight, not just one for
the Army and Marine Corps.
Sailors, he said, bring unique per-
spectives and skills to the effort. But
he was also quick to point out that
IA duty can have a similar effect on


Sailors themselves, broadening their
viewpoints and exposing them to new
methods of warfighting.
"We have had thousands of Sailors
go through this IA duty, and I think
its going to cause the Navy to change
how we look at the world", said
Mullen. "I fundamentally believe that
you can't stay 1,000 miles out at sea
and watch the rest of the world go
by."
Every two weeks about 400 Sailors
cycle through Camp McGrady, where
they are trained in more than 80
Soldier tasks including convoy oper-
ations, basic rifle marksmanship,
urban operations, heavy weapons,
land navigation and first aid.
"We are getting great training
here," said Lt. Robb Knapp, who
will work with the Iraqi Assistance
Group. "I feel fully prepared for when
I deploy and any combat situation I
may encounter."
The Navy's top leader described
the positive attitude of IA Sailors
he recently visited in Iraq and
Afghanistan, saying they felt proud to
be serving and knew they were mak-
ing a difference. He also pointed out
ways the Navy is trying to improve
the entire IA assignment process.
The recently-established Task Force
Individual Augmentation, for exam-
ple, has increased notification time
for Sailors ordered to IA billets from
under 30 days to a high of 80 days
in December 2006. The notification
window begins when a Sailor receives
written orders of IA duty, and ends
when that Sailor leaves the area of
permanent duty station.
The Navy also announced late last


year a series of new IA incentives.
These initiatives include flexible
advancement exams and award points
towards advancement. The Navy
will also pay for families of Sailors
deployed on IA duty to move from
their area of permanent duty station
to an area of greater family support
during the deployment. These initia-
tives are designed to ease the burden
of the family and Sailor during the
separation.
"This is very vital work our IA's are
doing at an incredibly critical time in
our nation's history, and I am com-
mitted to making sure the Navy gets
it right when it comes to recognizing
that fact," said Mullen.
For all this success, the CNO noted
that there still exists some tension
between the Navy, which wants to
send its best people forward, and unit
commanding officers, who desire to
keep talent close at hand.
"They don't like to give up their best
people. I understand that. I've been a
CO," he said. "But they need to know
that the decision to support the IA
commitment is coming right from me.
It's that important, and I need their
support. This has to be a team effort."
The CNO thanked the Sailors
for their service as IA's and also
expressed his gratitude for the sac-
rifices being made by their families.
He said support for those families
remains a top priority.
"In direct guidance from me, I have
asked commands to have a support
mechanism to ensure that families
are supported," he said. "We want to
make sure that we are doing as much
as we can to support you."


Fleet and Family Support Center lending a hand to IAs


ByMC1(SW/AW)
Heather Ewton
Assistant Editor


The Fleet and Family
Support Center (FFSC)
Jacksonville has many
services that benefit Sailors
and their families. They are
continuously evolving to the
numerous changes that the
military lifestyle is prone to.
One change to the Navy
way of life is the introduction
to Individual Augmentee (IA)
assignments and the scope of
personnel who are subject to
this type of duty.
Unless you have been liv-
ing in cave, you are more
than aware that no Sailor
is exempt from this type of
duty. At any given notice,
any Sailor can be notified.
that their service is request-
ed in the operational theatre
of the global war on terror-
ism.
This type of notification
can be terrifying to some.
There are so many things to
consider prior to deploying
and there are usually loved
ones involved.
The FFSC understands
that there are goionf to be
questions, concerns, fears
and doubts, and theF want
you to know that they are
available to assist you and
your families with all ofl
those things.


"Our main goal is to
ensure that the service mem-
ber's matters and needs are
addressed prior to deploy-
ment so that they can focus
on the mission at hand and
feel at peace knowing that
their loved ones have all. of
the resources available to
them to make their tour a
successful one," stated FFSC
Relocation Assistant and
Work Life Specialist Glenn
Barton.
The services that the FFSC
provides are completely free
of charge and they rival the
services that you would have
to pay for if you ventured out
into the civilian sector.
"The Navy has put these
programs in place for the
families of the service mem-
ber and we extend them
out for people to utilize,"
remarked FFSC Education
and Training Facilitator
Wilhelmina Nash.
. Utilizing the programs
and familiarizing one's self
with the vast assortment of
services that the FFSC has
to offer is a crucial step in
making certain that things
go smoothly.
Another step to take is
simply planning ahead.
'Many personnel are given
a very short notice of the
deployment that they are
being sent on. All Sailors


need to be ready for the
call instead of waiting for
it," said FFSC Deployment
Specialist Dwight Hester.
"At the FFSC, we can
help you get those matters
squared away whether you
have been called upon or
not. You don't have to be an
IA to get IA services. If you
have things in order ahead
of time, they will move much
more smoothly."
"You can be pulled out of
the operating room or off of
the mess decks. It doesn't
matter what your pay grade
is or what your rate is.
Everyone is subject to this
type of tour," added Hester.
The FFSC is full of services
in itself, but they also point
out other resources to Sailors
and families. Specifically,
Military One Source is a free
online service dedicated to
the Armed Forces.
The site is available 24
hours a day and seven days
a week. There is never voice-
mail as live counselors are
always available and they
offer all of the same servic-
es that the FFSC offers. So
when the facility is closed,
you'll always have a place to
turn when a crisis arises.
Also, Navy Knowledge
Online (NKO) is another vast
asset to Sailors. Answers to
all IA questions can be found

CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


A choice



made for you

By Chaplain (Lt. Cmdr.) Gregg Gillette
Daniel was set up! It was a case of jealousy and lust
because he was faithful, honest and always respon-
sible. His co-workers were envious of his pending
new position over them. They agreed something had to be
done to prevent the promotion while they still could. Yet
Daniel's situation was caused by something he was very
familiar with . . . his choice. To pray or not to pray, that
was the question.
Daniel chose to pray. He knowingly
chose to break a law that if caught
would have him served up like "Meow
Mix". With windows open and in full
view of his conspirators he knelt. The
king who was very angry with himself .
for unwittingly signing the law was
unable to intervene in behalf of his /
friend. The daylong loophole search .
proved fruitless and that evening the
plot-hatching politicians reminded the m|
king, he too knew the law he signed Chaplain
couldn't be changed. Daniel needed h. ap.)
to be arrested. Powerless to help, to (Lt. Cmdr.)
change what had already taken place, Gregg Gillette
Daniel's friend gave the order, "arrest him and throw him
to the lions".
The choices to exterminate Daniel, deceive the king, sign
the law into practice and pray all had consequences. Like
ripples on a pond after a rock pierces its surface. Some
consequences are quickly and readily seen while others,
due to surrounding situations and or circumstances aren't
as visible. Whether it be nine seconds, nine months or
nine years every choice we-make has consequences. 'That
in itself is neither good nor bad, simply a matter of fact.
Nine hours later, Daniel went from feline food to empire
overseer because of his choice. The men that tried to make
him nothing more than a memory experienced the pain
they planned for Daniel because of their choice. However
deserving they may have been to suffer the consequences
of their choices, those men who actually made the deci-
sion to do wrong were not alone when they were served as
breakfast. The king ordered that their wives and children
be thrown into the lion's den as well. (Daniel Chapter 6)
No matter who we are we have choices to make every
moment of every day.
Cruel and unfair as it may seem our choices don't just
impact our lives, they touch others whether we realize
it or not. But no one suffered more unfairly than the one
who never made a wrong choice. (2 Corinthians 6:21) He
hung by the bones in his wrists from six .inch steel spikes
driven into what once produced shade on a sunny day and
now was fashioned into a torturous tool the Romans called
a cross. (Luke 23:32-41) It was his choice both before and
during the excruciating pain. To pay a debt he didn't owe.
Nevertheless, it was a choice Jesus made for you.

Operation Financial Fitness


Campaign now under way


By Zona Lewis, Commander
Navy Installation Command Public Affairs
The Defense Department has des-
ignated now through March 4 as
Military Saves Week to encour-
age service members and their families
to establish savings goals and set money
aside for emergencies and other needs.
The theme for this year's campaign is
Operation Financial Freedom.
"To gain financial leverage, individuals
must make a conscious choice to balance
future financial readiness with today's
non-critical wants," said Commander Navy
Installations Command Vice Adm. Bob
Conway. "This commitment requires sac-
rifice and dedication. A Sailor's financial
readiness directly impacts mission readi-
ness.
There are many reasons to save includ-
ing retirement, investing, emergency
funds, debt reduction, education, vacation
and home ownership. In general, people
acknowledge the need to save. However,
most people do not know how to start sav-
ing and what the best savings strategies
for them are.
Military Saves Week asks each service
member or family to do two things: set
a savings goal and start saving. A com-
mitment to save, even a small amount,
adds up quickly. The campaign encourages
savers to make savings goals achievable
through simple, easy-to-follow strategies.
Military Saves also encourages savers to
set aside something out of every paycheck
- no matter how great or how small. The
campaign also encourages savers to make
savings automatic. A saver may elect to
establish a fund for emergencies by having
a set amount from each paycheck direct
deposited into a savings account.
"Direct deposit is one of the most con-
venient ways to save," said Commander
Navy Region Europe Education Services
Coordinator Glovinia Harris. "Because of
the frequent moves, military members and
their families may have one or more credit
union savings accounts. Utilize one of your
accounts exclusively as a savings account.
There is an old saying 'if you don't see it
you won't miss it."'


Military Saves also encourages savers to
make savings goals specific:
* Save $25 a month for emergencies.
* Pay down debt by an extra $25 a
month.
. Set up an IRA and make regular con-
tributions.
* Open a college savings account and
make regular contributions.
* Participate or increase participation in
a 401k or Thrift Savings Plan.
* Save your tax refund.
Make the commitment before filing and
use the new Form 8888 to split the refund
in up to three accounts.
According to Michael Spiltener, Fleet and
Family Support Center (FFSC)Work and
Family Life specialist at Fleet Activities
Yokosuka, Japan, everyone needs to set
SMART goals. SMART goals are: S- spe-
cific to you; something that motivates
and excites you. M- measurable; ability to
watch it grow. A-action; start that allot-
ment, open that account. R- realistic; make
it attainable. T - timely; set a starting date
and an ending date.
"No one cares about your money more
than you," said Spiltener. "Make your goal
a SMART one for you. It doesn't take a
high IQ to be smart with savings, just a
SMART plan," Spiltener added.
FFSCs and command financial special-
ists are working at the regional and instal-
lation levels throughout the Navy to pro-
vide service members and families with
workshops and resources to build wealth,
not debt..
Financial educators within FFSCs offer
counseling, referral and a variety of classes
-- debt reduction, saving and investing, car
buying and home ownership. Classes are
provided in centers and in the workplace
including on ships and in hangers.
Military Saves is part of the nationwide
campaign, America Saves, and is sponsored
by Consumer Federation of America, the
Department of Defense, the NASD Investor
Education Foundation, and a nationwide
network of defense credit unions and mili-
tary banks. To learn more about Military
Saves Week events and financial resources

Building strong military marriage - Part 3


By Beth Wiruth
Special Contributor


Building a strong marriage requires
more than three short columns but
the effort is priceless. Statistics eas-
ily found in the Internet show that married
individuals live longer than their divorced
counterparts. Children of divorce have
statistically at greater risk for teenage
pregnancy, lower educational achievement,
and higher crime rate. Three aspects of
marriage contribute greatly to the success
or demise of a marriage; communication,
finances, and fidelity. For military mar-
riages these areas require creativity and
commitment.
Communication during deployment is
challenging especially for certain mili-
tary communities such as the submarine
community or special forces. The key is to
'plan' to communicate. Communication is
not "talking". Communication is exchang-
ing information, thoughts, ideas and open-
ing dialog and discussion on these areas.
Rhett, an Army officer, observes, "When I
was home we spent a lot of time together,
but now that I'm deployed we realize we
didn't discuss the 'business' of our mar-
riage. Now we are trying to do it via call-
ing card phone calls, email and letters. It
is much harder because we didn't lay a
foundation of communication before I was
deployed."
Nikki and Sila Lee, authors of The
Marriage Book and founders of The
Marriage Course urge couples to set aside
time each week to communicate. Nikki
states, "As couples we can talk all the time
but not about the things that keep the
marriage on track. We can assume our
spouse knows what we are thinking or
feeling." Setting aside time for a 'business'
date on a regular basis keeps couples work-
ing together and strengthens their bond.


SPOUSE'S


PERSPECTIVE
This "talking date" is to purposefully talk
about what is going on in your marriage
from finances/spending plan and the kids
report cards to holiday plans, the upcom-
ing soccer season schedule, vehicle main-
tenance or remodeling project. For military
families this means deep conversation dur-
ing deployment will be challenging but if
communication during non-deployment
periods is maintained it will be easier to
adjust during the interruptions of deploy-
ment.
Daryl and Jaloni, a Navy couple, offer
their deployment communication strategy.
Jaloni says she does not want Daryl wor-
ried or distracted by things going on at
home but found she had cut Daryl out of
the family's life by not wanting to "share
too much". She emails a brief family 'busi-
ness' update to Daryl once a week.
She communicates what is happening
and what action she has taken or intends
to take but also asks Daryl for his input on
all big decisions. In turn, Daryl remembers
that Jaloni is carrying the role of Mom and
Dad -and determines not to "check out" but
to support Jaloni and offer his feedback
and input. Their advice? Try to anticipate
things prior to deployment and plan and
discuss them then keep talking throughout
deployment as much as possible.
Finances. Developing a spending and
savings plan is important to keep family
finances healthy while avoiding a major
stress point in marriage. Maintaining the

With a VyStar Pay and Save Loan, you pay a reasonable interest rate of 14.25% APR and

Commissaries add registered



dietitian to outreach program


By Bonnie Powell
Defense Commissary Agency
Customers have always been able
to find healthy food at a healthy
savings in their commissary.
They can also find healthy advice now
that the Defense Commissary Agency
(DeCA) has a registered dietitian on
staff.
"We made a commitment to be the
nutritional leader for the military,"
said Patrick Nixon, DeCA director
and chief executive officer. "We're
excited to have Maj. Karen Fauber
as the first DeCA dietitian, and we
expect this to be a great opportunity
for customers to obtain nutrition edu-
cation through their commissary sys-
tem."
Having a dietitian on staff is also a
growing trend in the commercial gro-
cery industry more and more consum-
ers indicate they look to grocery stores
for nutrition education and guidance.
After all, that's where they make most
of their food purchase decisions.
DeCA and TRICARE have
been partnering for two years on
TRICARE's Healthy Choices for Life
program, which focuses on the prob-
lems of alcohol abuse, tobacco use and
obesity in military families. "Since
we are the grocery store of choice
for millions of military families,
we developed the 'It's Your Choice,
Make it Healthy' program to tie into


the weight management segment of
Healthy Choices," said Nixon.
It's Your Choice does not aim to tell
customers what is good or bad, but it
does encourage them to think more
about their choices.
"Weight management is a topic of
primary importance for DoD patient
education," said TRICARE Chief
Medical Officer Dr. David Tornberg.
"DeCA is making a significant contri-
bution to our program by emphasiz-
ing healthier eating, and has taken
the effort to a new level by adding a
registered dietitian to their team."
Nixon added, "having a registered
dietitian increases our ability to
educate customers on how to make
healthier meal choices - reading prod-
uct labels at the commissary, enjoying
more fresh fruit and vegetables and
leaner meats, and preparing meals at
home instead of hitting the fast food
drive thru or spending hard-earned
money on restaurants."
The DeCA dietitian is already on
the job, having filmed a Pentagon
Channel segment offering advice on
how to shop for foods that will help
consumers stick to their New Year's
resolutions to lose weight.
"I really appreciate the leadership
role commissaries are taking in advo-
cating healthy food choices for mil-
itary families," said Fauber. "I am
eager to be a part of DeCA's efforts
in promoting 'It's Your Choice, Make


It Healthy,' and providing nutrition
education as part of the commissary
benefit."
Fauber has 16 years of service with
10 years as an Army Reserve dieti-
tian and six years active duty, includ-
ing experience as a certified diabetes
educator in Army medical facilities
and public health clinics. She has also
developed, coordinated and evaluat-
ed health and nutrition programs in
Virginia and was the Virginia "Five a
Day for Better Health" program coor-
dinator.
Fauber has a bachelor's degree
in dietetics from Georgia Southern
University, Statesboro, Ga., and
a master's degree in education and
human development from George
Washington University, Washington,
D.C. She completed her dietetic
internship at Brooke Army Medical
Center in San Antonio.
Some of the initiatives planned for
the DeCA dietitian include an "Ask
the Dietitian" feature on the DeCA
Web site at http://www.commissaries.
com and increased visibility for the
recently revamped "5 A Day for Better
Health" program, which focuses on
fruits and vegetables. Fauber will also
work closely with DeCA home econo-
mist and Europe outreach specialist
Kay Blakley, who is well-known for
her "Kay's Kitchen" newspaper col-
umns and recipes, and TV spots on
American Forces Network in Europe.


ITEMPO System upgrade allows offline tracking of Sailors


By MCC Teresa Frith
Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs
Units with deployed Sailors
can now keep track of these
assignments through the
new Individual Personnel TEMPO
(ITEMPO) Offline Reporting System
even if they have limited Internet
access.
Since Oct. 1, 2000, the Navy has
used ITEMPO to track and document
the individual deployment days of its
Sailors. The system also can be used
in the process of permanent change
of station moves and individual aug-
mentee orders, to answer queries, and
track Sailors for the purpose of opera-
tional health surveillance.
Use of ITEMPO will ensure Sailors
individually deployed in support of
the global war on terrorism are com-
pensated in terms of time at sea when
they return to their home units, sta-
tions or ships. The program gives
senior leaders the tools not only to

Previously, the only way ITEMPO

via an Internet connection. The new
ITEMPO software will make it pos-

the start of a deployment. Once imple-
mented, the program allows the cre-

in a file that is ready for transmission
once Internet access is resumed.
"The new ITEMPO Offline applica-

How Black History


Month inspires me

By IT3 Shantaye Kinlaw
4(Tam an invisible man .. . I am a man of sub-
Istance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids and
I might even be said to possess a mind. I am
invisible; understand, simply because people refuse
to see me." This excerpt was taken from African-
American author Ralph Ellison's first novel, Invisible
Man (1952).

law, from Naval Computer
and Telecommunications
Station Jacksonville, an award
for winning first place in the
African-American History
Month Essay Contest.


This quotation to me
represents the 337 days
out of the year that
many of us including
myself, who are not rec-
ognized for our many
achievements and
accomplishments. Only
in February do we have
a chance to be heard
and seen through-
out the United States.
Black History Month
to me is an opportunity
to illuminate our heri-
tage amongst all races,
dating back from our
ancestors' struggles as
slaves to our achieve-
ments throughout his-
tory and today.
What is the definition


of inspiration? In my own words its something that
influences a person or people to do something that
touches them. Black History month inspires me to
take part in my heritage and learn different aspects
and actions that were taken that enabled me to be
here today to write about it. Learning about Harriet
Tubman's leadership to freedom, Abraham Lincoln's
Emancipation Proclamation, human rights activist
Malcolm X. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's speech about
equality and my all time favorite Rosa Parks' famous
Montgomery bus ride. Parks stated that, "The only
tired I was, was tired of giving in." That is my favorite
statement which really inspires me to keep learning
and taking part in programs for Black History month.
Every year, I learn more and more new things about
my heritage and it inspires me to stay active and carry
on our linear heritage.
When did Black History actually begin? According
to history books, the first African slaves were brought
to Virginia in 1619. I know for a fact that I was not
aware that my ancestors were first brought there.
Maya Angelou said that, "For Africa to me...is more
than a glamorous fact. It is a historical truth, No man
can know where he is going unless he knows exactly
where he has been and exactly how he arrived at his
present place."
It saddens me to know that so many of our people
are unaware of their roots and that many of them
settle for what is thrown at them. I believe that if
African-American history was greatly emphasized
more in schools and the communities not in just one
month, that maybe, just maybe, our people will make
greater efforts to stand up taller and fight more for
what we are entitled to. If a tree falls in the forest
and no one is around to hear it, will it be heard? If we
are truly heard and paid attention to during Black
History Month for just one month out of the year, for
the remainder of the year will anyone still hear us?
Black History Month is an educational time and
also a fun time of the year. I love to see many of our
people participate in the programs and sending chain
emails everyday pointing out the different achieve-
ments from the past to the present. It inspires me to
spread and share the knowledge of our heritage. What
I am inspired to do now is plan ahead for the future.
I want to be apart of our present and future achieve-
ments so that all the African-American children of
the world can see that some of us are still fighting for
what seems to be invisible to many. As Maya Angelou
expressed, "Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise, 1 rise,
I rise."

Optometry clinic helps service members focus on mission


By Loren Barnes
NHI- Jacksonville Public Affairs
If it's been a while since
you've been to Naval
Hospital Jacksonville's
Optometry Clinic at the
NAS Jacksonville Naval
Branch Health Clinic you'll
find lots of new people, new
services and new products.
Optometrist Lt. Charles
Charbonneau said the staff
consists of three optom-
etrists; Lt. Mark Watson,
Lt. Cmdr. Todd Lauby (an
aerospace optometrist) and
himself. NBHC Jax Officer
in Charge Cmdr. Regina
O'Nan, also an optometrist,
sees patients in the clinic.
The enlisted staff consists
of Optometry Technicians
HM2 Encarnacion Nunez
and HM3 Keisha Napier
as well as AW3 Nicholas
Carlton, an HM striker.
Charbonneau said he
and the other two prima-
ry optometrists have been
aboard for less than a year
and they are "all anxious to
start personalized patient
care relationships with
area service members."
The clinic sees all active
duty beneficiaries in the
Jacksonville area from all
military branches.
"We have excellent access
to care and patients can
usually make an appoint-
ment to be seen in less
than a week," Charbonneau
stressed, "anyone that has
not had an eye exam in two
years should schedule one.
All contact lens wearers
and diabetics should sched-
ule an exam every year," he
added.
The eyeglass frame
options available at the
clinic are no longer limited
to the old "birth control"
frames. Charbonneau said,
"The clinic recently dou-
bled its frame selection and
the new ones offer greater
comfort and style," he said.
"These frames are available
to all active duty members
who have not ordered a
frame of choice in the last
12 months."
AT2(AW) Michael Haber,
who was at the clinic get-
ting fitted for new frames,
said of the added choices,
"They're a lot better than
the old variety they had."
Maybe you prefer contact
lenses! Charbonneau said,
"We are currently offering
contact lens renewal fit-
ting services to all existing
active duty contact lens
wearers." He explained,
"Patients will still have to
purchase their own lenses,
but our goal is to save them
the out-of-pocket costs for

TRICARE benefit covers HPV vaccine


From the TRICARE Management Activity
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infec-
tion is a concern for girls and young
women because it can lead to cervi-
cal cancer. TRICARE wants its beneficia-
ries to know a preventive vaccine is avail-
able, and that the vaccine is a TRICARE
covered benefit.
The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) reported that in 2006,
approximately 9,700 cases of cervical can-
cer were diagnosed in the United States,
and approximately 3,700 women died from
the disease. Nearly all cervical cancer
cases are associated with an HPV infec-
tion.
"It is important for us to protect our
beneficiaries from preventable disease
whenever we can," said Army Maj. Gen.
Elder Granger, deputy director, TRICARE
Management Activity. "So we cover all
immunizations the CDC's Advisory
Committee on Immunization Practices rec-
ommends and adopts."


The CDC recommends a three-dose
schedule for the HPV vaccine with the sec-
ond and third doses administered two and
six months after the first dose. They rec-
ommend routine vaccination with HPV for
girls 11 to 12 years old. Doctors may start
the vaccination series in girls as young
as nine years old, and can give a catch-up
vaccination to 13 to 26 years olds who have
not been vaccinated previously or who have
not completed the full vaccine series.
Because the vaccine is new, it may not be
available everywhere. Interested beneficia-
ries or their parents should contact their
doctors to find out if they administer the
HPV vaccine.
Also, the new vaccine does not protect
against every type of HPV infection and
can't prevent all cervical cancers. So get-
ting vaccinated does not eliminate the need
for screening pap smears, or reduce the
importance of regular gynecological exams.
For more on vaccination schedules you
may visit www.cdc.gov/mmwr/pdf/wk/
mm5551-Immunization.pdf.

Caring for children during flu season


By LIFELines Staff


Sharing for children
during the flu season
If you are a military
mom or dad, grandpar-
ent or caregiver, here are
some important things you
should know about the flu,
and caring for children dur-
ing the flu season.
Facts about the flu
What is the flu?
The flu is a contagious
respiratory infection caused
by the influenza virus. It
can cause mild to severe ill-
ness, and in some instances
result in death.
How is the flu different
from a common cold?
With colds, one rarely gets
fevers, headaches or experi-
ences extreme fatigue, all
symptoms of the flu (see flu
symptoms below).
When and how does
the flu spread?
Flu season is November
through March. The flu is
spread through coughing,
sneezing, even touching.
You can get the flu from the
cough or sneeze of someone
who has it, or by touching a
surface that someone with
the flu has touched (such as
a door knob, stair railing or
telephone) and then putting
that finger or hand in con-
tact with your nose, mouth
or eyes. People with the
flu are contagious one day
before their symptoms start
and for up to seven days
after symptoms appear.
What are the symptoms
of the flu?
The flu starts sud-
denly and may include


some of the following:
* Fever (usually high)
* Headache
* Tiredness
* Dry cough
* Sore throat
* Runny or stuffy nose
* Body aches
* In children, sinus infec-
tions, ear infections and
stomach symptoms (diar-
rhea, vomiting, nausea) can
occur
Tips to avoid
getting the flu
Here are some ways
to help avoid getting the
flu. This is a good time to
teach or remind children
about good health habits
that can last a lifetime.
Emergency warning signs:
If your child exhibits any of
these symptoms, call your
doctor immediately:
- Fast breathing or trou-
ble breathing
* Bluish skin color
* Not drinking enough
fluids
* Not waking up or not
interacting
* Being so irritable that
the child does not want to
be held
* Flu-like symptoms
improve, but then return
with fever and worse cough
* Fever with a rash
* Avoid close contact with
people who are sick, and
don't expose others to you
or your family if sick.
- Wash your hands often
with soap and water or
alcohol-based handi-wipes
to protect from germs.
* Avoid touching your
eyes, nose, or mouth.
Germs often spread when


you touch something with
germs and then touch your
eyes, nose, or mouth.
What should I do if my
child gets the flu? ,
* At the first sign of
the flu, keep your child at
home. Sending a sick child
to school puts others at
risk: children, teachers and
your own child.
* Do not give your child
or adolescent aspirin with
the flu or a fever. Aspirin
can cause Reyes Syndrome,
a serious condition that
affects the nerves.
* Call your doctor for
advice on medications, even
over the counter medica-
tions as complications can
arise in children with other
health problems, even
healthy children.
* Stay home from work
with a sick child or provide
childcare at home. Do not
leave your child alone.
* Make sure your child
gets plenty of rest and
drinks lots of liquids.
* Be familiar with your
school district's rules on
returning a child to school
after the flu.
Take care of yourself!
Many military parents are
coping with other issues:
lengthened deployments,
extended time as an only
parent, being the parent of
a spouse that might be suf-
fering injury or trauma, or
living off base with one's
family, just to name a few.
These issues are stressful,
and add to fatigue when ill-
ness strikes. If you or your
children get sick, seek help
from your medical provider.


Ask friends or family to run
to the market or drugstore.
Better yet, be prepared!
Stock up on canned soups,
fruit juices, freeze breads
and meats so that in the
event of illness there will be
healthy food in your home.
Make a kit for school
You "may want to assemble
the following items to put
in your child's backpack or
lunchbox to reinforce good
health habits, especially
during flu season. Make
sure your child's school per-
mits such items taken into


the classroom. In a large
plastic zipper bag (freezer
bag), put:
* Tissues in the small
packages - many have col-
orful, fun designs that boys
and girls will like and enjoy
using.
- Antibacterial moist tow-
elettes such as Wet Ones
come in small sizes that can
be opened and resealed.
* Small plastic bottles
of sanitizing gel (such as
Purell). Children can rub
this on their hands; it dis-
solves, cleans and requires


no tissue or towels.
* A small plastic zipper
bag inserted into a larger-
er bag. Children can put
their used tissues into this
and seal it. This avoids
the spread of germs from
tissues thrown into open
wastebaskets.
These items can be found in
most drugstores in the trav-
el, paper or medicine aisles
When you make this kit
with your child and explain
what each item is for, you've
made flu season a teachable
moment!

ourself to a great new job


A great place to start is the local
employment office. You may need
to register with the office to get
access to their services. Don't be
discouraged if this office is also
known as the unemployment office.
The goal is to get to work, so use
any and all resources available.
Many states provide r6sum6
review services, employment-
related workshops, self-service
computer courses or a library of
pertinent materials. Some states
provide training for workers who
are displaced or entering a new
field. For example, the Oahu
Work Links program in Oahu,


Hawaii, provides classroom train-
ing, vocational education, coun-
seling and remedial education
for applicants who qualify. The
training can range from comput-
er certification courses at a local
business school to medical assis-
tant programs. As each state is
different, call the local employ-
ment office and ask about what
programs are available.
Many state employment offices
maintain current databases of
open jobs and are a great resource
for information on who is hiring
in the state. Often, employers

ment office first, so get in on these
new opportunities early.
To find the nearest employ-
ment office, look in the phone
book under Department of Labor
or employment. This website
www.dmdc.osd.mil/appj/sites
contains information on DOD
installations worldwide. Select
the relevant base, then "View
Installation Information," click
on "Employment" and then
"Permanent Employment
Resources." Many bases include
the phone number, address and a
link to the local employment office
and/or the local Fleet and Family


Support Center office (FFSC). The
FFSCs employment counselors
may have some information on
state employment services as well.
If you prefer searching direct-
ly on the Internet, check out
StateJobs.com which contains
links to the employment offices of
most states. Another good site is
govtjobs.com where you can enter
your email address to receive new
job postings in city, county and
state government agencies.
Searching for a new job in a new
city can be extraordinarily stress-
ful. Help yourself by using the
services provided by your state.

start on training for their Navy careers.
The ATT core school at Center for
Surface Combat Systems Unit Great Lakes
is the first stop for Sailors in technical rat-
ings after boot camp. Once they complete
the school, they will go on to "A" School,
depending on their rating.
"This program offers future Sailors, a
chance to get a head start on their school
work. In addition, the program saves the
Navy money because the total time to train
is reduced once the student reaches ATT,"
said FC1 Roger Hanson,. an instructor at
ATT who provides technical and curricu-
lum assistance to students in the DEP
Program.
With the on-line training, Hanson said
students should be able to graduate "A"
School quicker, which will result in an
earlier promotion. "Most technical ratings
have an automatic advancement to E-4
once a Sailor graduates, so they will put it
on sooner," he said. "The e-learning course
is the entire curriculum down to the letter.
Through the E-Learning portal, DEP stu-
dents can access the course content wher-
ever they are and complete it before they
are officially sworn in to the Navy."
DEP students are provided limited
access to NKO, but the ATT course is the
first that allows the student to cover a
course that they will need to complete after


boot camp. "They come in knowing how
to use the software and the material and
have a more profound knowledge of what's
expected when they get here," Hanson
said.
So far, four Sailors have reached the ATT
schoolhouse and are nearly a combined
25 days ahead in their training. "Since
the end of October, when we started this,
there have been 41 Advance Electronics
Computer Field DEP personnel who have
logged in to the course," Hanson said.
Recruiters Navy-wide are getting the
message out to new recruits that this
program, as well as other information, is
available to them at NKO.
AEAR Tina Pinelli of Asbury Park, N.J.,
entered boot camp Nov. 1 of last year. She
says the course, as well as the other NKO
offerings, were beneficial to her training.
"I started two months before I came in
and did several of the lessons. I will defi-
nitely use it again," she said. It's a little
overwhelming with all the electronics, but
this online program gave me an advantage
with a better understanding of what they
are talking about."
Hanson has definitely noted the differ-
ence the e-learning course has made in her
performance. "I can see from her first six
or seven lessons that she has passed every
attempt the first time out, so the course is
really helping her," he said.
The online course is open to anyone in
the Navy, and since it is training material,
assistance is available through a subject
matter expert. "There is a subject matter
expert to help students and provide an
online message board. The students do
not have to get through it on their own,"
Hanson said.


FFSCs give Sailors outlet for stress, anger


By MC3 S. C. Irwin
Fleet Public Affairs Center, Pacific


Fleet and Family Support Centers,
(FFSC) Navywide continue to hold
anger management and stress man-
agement classes to help service members
maintain or achieve a higher quality of life.
Service members can receive advice from
licensed therapists on effective ways to
work through stress and anger stemming
from personal or work-related setbacks.
"Commands know our programs and
know we can help their Sailors if they need
it," said Naval Base San Diego FFSC Chief
of Clinical Services Dr. William Fenton.
"Our classes are for people to use as a step-
pingstone to solve their problems."
Day and evening classes are held mul-
tiple times each month. While classes are
group events, each Sailor is guaranteed
anonymity. In addition, sea and shore com-
mands can request for FSCC instructors
to come aboard and conduct classes before
and after deployments.
"If somebody isn't working well at their
command, most of the supervisors will

PROBLEMS?

to help.

[ A aESS~


know the signs because of our programs
and the training we give them to identify
those signs," said Fenton.
A hospitalman working at Naval Medical
Center San Diego was referred by his
supervisors to a recent anger management
class held at Naval Base San Diego. His
supervisor noticed a downgrade in his atti-
tude and performance that he said was
caused by pre-deployment stress.
"I was really stressed to the point where
I would take everything personally,"'he
said. "If someone else was having a bad
day, I would let it affect me."
He said the tutorial helped him identify
behavior that could possibly lead him to
hurt others or himself. He added the anger
management class prompted him to seek
further counseling through an FFSC thera-
pist.
"This was the step I needed to take to
see that I'm not dealing with my stress the
way I should," he said.

16 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, March 1, 2007



HANGAR: Must be




ready for arrival of




first Romeos in '08


From Page 1

The construction project will support
expanding helicopter deployments
and optimize airfield investments at
NAS Jacksonville. Completion of the
hangar is scheduled for the fall of
2009. The first Romeo squadron is
scheduled to arrive in 2008, with the
last one arriving in 2013. To position
the new facility in the necessary loca-
tion, two World War II-era hangars,
Buildings 122 and 123, will be demol-
ished.
The new hangar is designed to
house five Romeo helicopter squad-
rons consisting of approximately 13
aircraft and 330 personnel in each
module. In addition to the hangar
bay, the project includes required
maintenance support, administration,
and building support spaces for each
squadron.
The project also includes a dual
position helicopter wash rack along
with site improvements such as util-
ity infrastructure, repair/replacement


of hangar aprons and tie-downs, new
aircraft pavement markings, security
fencing and gates, pedestrian circula-
tion and parking lots.
According to Dobson, the project will
have a significant financial impact in
North Florida. "Clearly a large con-
struction project like this one has a
positive economic impact to the city
during the construction period and it
continues once the wing is here," he
said.
"Local companies will benefit from
subcontracts and eventually the City
of Jacksonville will benefit from the
added revenues that additional mili-
tary payrolls bring."
NAS Jacksonville's Public Works
Officer Lt. Cmdr. Chuck Lewis is
the NAVFAC Southeast contact for
the new hangar and briefly described
the project. "We have a super team of
engineers, architects and construction
professionals dedicated to this proj-
ect," said Lewis.
"Our team is excited that we are
able to undertake this significant
project for NAS Jacksonville and that
our efforts will directly support our


warfighters. We are fully prepared to
begin construction and deliver this
state-of-the-art facility on time."
Vital to our nation's defense, NAS
Jacksonville is a multi-mission mas-
ter air and industrial base which sup-
ports United States, NATO and allied
forces worldwide. The base is home to
the P-3C Orion long-range antisub-
marine reconnaissance and maritime
patrol aircraft, the SH-60F Seahawk
antisubmarine warfare helicopter and
the S-3B Viking sea control jet air-
craft and hosts more than 100 ten-
ant commands, including VP-30, the
Navy's largest aviation squadron. It
employs nearly 25,000 active duty,
reserve, civilian and contract person-
nel and services thousands of retir-
ees and family members resulting in
nearly $2 billion being infused into
the local community each year.
Base personnel take seriously the
rich tradition, support and customer
service they provide to our forces and
each is deeply committed to the sta-
tion's logo of "Service to the Fleet" and
to its mission of "Enabling Warfighter
Readiness."


SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE: Building strong marriage


From Page 9


financial plan during deployment will
offer both Sailor and spouse confi-
dence. There are too many stories of
spouses going on spending binges dur-
ing deployment, or the Sailor spend-
ing large sums at port calls. Both
situations cause stress and can be
avoided. Fleet and Family Support
Services, your service member's com-
mand financial specialist or Navy-
Marine Corp Relief Society can assist
you in developing a spending plan
and a plan to get out of debt.
I was standing on the pier watch-
ing my husband's ship get underway
when the woman beside me asked, "Is
it true what they say about Sailors?"
Confused, I asked for clarification.
This underway was her first as a
Navy spouse and she heard the sto-
ries of unfaithfulness among sailors.
She was worried about her marriage.
I could tell a similar story of sail-


ors worried that their spouse would
not be there when he returned from
deployment.
Infidelity can devastate a marriage
and family. The head of a success-
ful corporation and well-known pub-
lic speaker knew his travel schedule
would keep him apart from his family
and open the opportunity for him to
meet many women. He decided as
a young exec that he needed to put
safety measures in place to protect his
marriage. He said, "The time to reject
temptation is before that temptation
arrives.
Know how to handle it before it
starts." For this executive that meant
he would never spend time alone with
a woman other than his wife. That
meant no lunches with a woman, no
private meetings with his secretary,
etc. He demonstrated his commitment
to this policy when on his way home
from the office he had a flat tire. His
secretary came upon him stranded on


the highway. He refused a ride from
her but asked her to call his wife and
ask her to pick him up. Who was this
man? Billy Graham.
For both the spouse left behind and
deployed service members take time
to decide in advance what protections
you will put in place to safeguard your
marriage. Choose your liberty buddy
wisely and avoid situations that pres-
ent opportunity to violate your vow to
your spouse. Spouses, the same goes
for us. Avoid confiding in members
of the opposite sex, spend time with
others who are equally committed to
their marriage and the success of your
marriage. The Navy's motto is perfect:
honor, courage, commitment. Honor
your vow to your spouse, courageously
avoid temptation and be committed to
your marriage.

CNP: Goal is to reach 50/50 sea and shore billets


From Page 1

According to Harvey, the num-
ber of recruiters needed to look
for the type of talented and di-
verse people needed to support the
future Navy will increase from 3,400
to 5,000.
"We're in the fight of our lives and if
we don't win, we're not going to have
the talent we need for the Navy we're
going to have," he continued.
Another important issue that
Harvey addressed was the individual
augmentee (IA) mission.
"The Army and Marine Corps are
severely stressed and that's why we're
doing IA missions," said Harvey.
"This mission isn't going to go away


and if I were in your seats I would
plan for another five years at this
level."
Though Harvey offered no reprieve
from IAs, he told the master chiefs
that he needs more support for the
families of Sailors who go on an IA
mission.
Part of his overall message of
recruiting, diversity and force readi-
ness included what Harvey described
as a sea-centric force. This will put
the ratio of sea and shore billets to
50/50. The desired outcomes from
redistribution of these billets are
more geographic stability for Sailors,
satisfying and rewarding work, per-
sonal and professional development
and predictability.
"Hopefully by the end of this year

mote safety, reduce helicopter accident rates, advocate the
establishment of adequate infrastructure worldwide, initiate
new programs to enhance the professional standards of train-
ing and advocate building a geographical database to assist in
emergency responses to acts of terrorism and national disasters.
Resavage retired from HAI in 2005. During his career, he
logged more than 6,000 hours in both fixed and rotary wing
aircraft.
A service to celebrate his life was held Feb. 23 in Alexandria,
Va.

we'll understand the billet distribu-
tion around the country and know
what it needs to be to support these
goals," he added.
One final message that Harvey
wanted all Sailors to know is that "the
success of our Navy is absolutely and
totally dependent on the work that all
of our Sailors do. I need every Sailor,
no matter where you are in the food
chain, to know that everyone has a
leadership opportunity. Everyone has
an opportunity to mentor someone,
to help him or her avoid a potential
pitfall and find a better way ahead.
Understand that everyone out there
is an example for someone. We should
set the kind of examples we want peo-
ple to follow for the kind of Navy we
want to be."

Getting married for right reasons?


Myths of marrying

in the military
By Cherie Dewar
LIFELines
ASailor getting fresh air on
the deck of a ship says to
his buddy, "I can't wait
to get back home. I wish I could
get a place of my own in town,
but I'll be stuck living on this
ship." The other Sailor, unflatter-
ingly regarded as a "sea lawyer,"
responds, "Hey, why don't you
just marry another Sailor, and
then you'll get paid more money
to live off base and always be sta-
tioned together?"
Stop the boat! Sailors and
Marines should know there's
some truth to this proposal, but if
you're considering marriage or
pregnancy for any reason other


than love and commitment, be
aware of all the responsibilities
and consequences that result from
these life-altering actions.
Myth #1: Make an easy profit
by getting married and
moving off base
Perhaps the additional money
you receive for getting married
and moving off base will increase
your income, but are you con-
sidering the whole package? It's
likely that the basic allowance for
housing (BAH) won't cover 100
percent of your rent or mortgage
payments. Additionally, there's
the cost of electricity, gas, sewer,
trash removal, cable TV, lawn
maintenance, and renter's insur-
ance. You'll need to buy furniture,
and likely a first or second car,
along with insurance, registra-
tion, maintenance, and gas costs.
You may find getting to work on
time harder when you factor in


commute time.
When you move out of the bar-
racks, you'll probably receive
basic allowance for subsistence,
but the military doesn't calculate
the amount to cover family mem-
ber food costs.
It's possible to move off base
and receive BAH without saying,
"I do." If a ship or barracks nears
its capacity, the command may
offer BAH for off-base quarters.
Myth #2: Get married to
escape field day
If you're thinking you can
avoid utility and transportation
expenses by marrying and living
on base, and that you'll get the
added bonus of avoiding field day
and inspections, be aware that on-
base housing is government prop-
erty. You're expected to maintain
a clean environment there, and
you are subject to inspection.
Landlords off base will also expect


their properties to be kept clean.
Myth #3: Get married for more
money and life will be easy
If you still believe you can
gain extra cash by entering into
a "contract marriage," or mar-
riage of convenience, remember
that you're entering a legal union
that brings responsibility. You
can be accountable financially if
your spouse fails to pay his or her
debts. If you separate, you will
still need to support and provide
housing for your spouse.
Entering a contract marriage
with another military member
doesn't draw the higher "with
dependents" BAH, but instead
both you and your service-mem-
ber spouse receive BAH as if
you were single. Instead of tak-
ing false vows, the same amount
of BAH can be drawn by simply
waiting to move off base when
your ship or barracks reach a


high capacity.
Myth #4: Become a parent to
duck sea duty
It's true that female Sailors
and Marines are removed from
sea duty for the duration of their
pregnancies and maternity leave,
but afterwards they are eligible to
return to sea duty with a.doctor's
clearance.
Myth #5: Married military
members will always be
stationed together
If two military members marry,
detailers will try to keep them
together, but there's no guaran-
tee. The needs of the military
come first. And deployment time
isn't decreased either.
Don't get married or pregnant
for the wrong reasons. Seek the
advice of a chaplain, the Fleet and
Family Support Center or Marine
Corps Community Services if you
have any questions.


Navy preventive maintenance system can work to keep you healthy


By Lissa Wohltmann
LIFELines


The Navy's Preventive
Maintenance System is
the simple answer to the
world's growing obesity and type
two diabetes problem. However,
people need to use this system
on their bodies instead of inani-
mate objects, if they want to avoid
obesity and the predictable type
two diabetes that may follow.
Preventing diseases is always
easier than dealing with illnesses.
In the United States, 90 per-
cent of diabetics have this avoid-
able type, while only 10 percent
have the hereditary type -- type
one - where the body produces no


insulin. Type 2 occurs when the
body cannot make enough -- or
properly use -- insulin.
Type two is relatively uncom-
plicated because it entails keep-
ing blood sugar levels in a target
range. This merely means balanc-
ing insulin, food, and exercise.
Since food raises blood sugar
levels while insulin and exercise
lowers them, one need to simply
move his body enough to burn off
all the calories consumed.
Although some medications
may delay the development of
diabetes, the American Diabetes
Association recommends diet and
exercise worked better.
"Just 30 minutes a day of mod-,
erate physical activity, coupled


with a five to 10 percent reduc-
tion in body weight, produced a
58 percent reduction in diabetes,"
their Web site stated.
People complicate the obesity
and diabetes problem with vari-
ous explanations. For example,
some will blame their genes, the
government or even the entire
fast-food industry.
America On the Move (AOM)
is a not for profit organization
that promotes healthful eating
and active living among individ-
uals, families, communities and
society. Their policy starts with
personal responsibility.
"The fight against obesity in
America begins at home," said
Jim Hill, Ph.D., co-founder of


AOM and professor of pediatrics
and medicine at the University of
Colorado Health Sciences Center.
"Our research shows that even
while kids look to their moms as -a
key source of health information,
more than half of them also worry
about their parents' weight."
Therefore, most experts agree
that the simplest way to com-
bat obesity and type two diabe-
tes is through lifestyle changes.
Grandiose transformations aren't
always necessary to get healthy.
Small everyday jobs and habits
can work just as well as specific
exercise workouts in a gym.
The National Heart Lung and
Blood Institute suggests a few
common chores to do that will


equal a typical exercise routine
or sporting activity. For exam-
ple, your child could wash and
wax your car for 45 to 60 minutes
instead of playing volleyball for
the same amount of time. You
and your child could shovel snow
together for 15 minutes instead
of going to a pool and swimming
laps for 20 minutes. Take the
stairs and you will have expend-
ed an equal amount of energy as
playing basketball for about the
same amount of time.'
Getting and staying healthy
isn't complicated. Start moving
your body and eating well-bal-
anced meals now. Don't weight.
You and your family's life may
depend on it.
