Jacksonville Feb. 27 to tour
the facilities here, learn about
base programs, meet the
Sailors and civilian workforce
and discuss the future of the
Navy.
"I was initially invited down
here to speak at a Sailor of
the Year banquet and thought
as long as I was here, I would
visit our naval bases in this
area. This gives me an oppor-
tunity to see some of the sup-

N aval Hospital Jacksonville con-
tinues to take the very best of
jNavy medicine abroad in support
of our forces in the global war on terror-
ism. Several deployment evolutions took
place this weekend as personnel rotated
in and out of Kuwait and Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba medical facilities.
The rotations started Feb. 23 when 19
Naval Hospital Jacksonville personnel
were seen off by their families and friends
at Jacksonville International Airport (JIA)
as they embarked on a six-month deploy-
ment to Joint Task Force (JTF) Detention
Center, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
George and Thelma Dowdy were
on hand to say farewell to their grand-
son, HN Jarrett White. The couple, from
Montgomery, Ala., said they were sad to
say goodbye but they are very proud of
Jarrett. Mr. Dowdy, an Air Force retiree,
put in 20 years service for his country, and
is therefore very familiar with the demands
of military service. Still, Mrs. Dowdy
seemed a bit reluctant to see her grandson
go, as she commented, "he doesn't know it
yet but we're going with him."
This is White's first de lo ment and h-

chiefs, DiRosa held discuss is individual augmen-


tees (IAs). With all the focus
on this, you are probably won-

coming up. Right now, we have
about 10,000 people who are
filling IA requirements and
half of those are Reservists.
On any given day we have
about 40,000 people deploy-
ing on maritime missions. So,
the reality is that our primary
mission is not necessarily the
IA support, but it is and will
always be maritime defense."
Her next topic discussed the
Chief of Naval Operation's
(CNO) message regarding
deployability and employ-
ability that was released last
Friday.
"This message deals with
rotation requirements and
what can be expected. We will
try to stay committed to six-
month deployment cycles. We
do have some carrier groups on
extended deployments because
of the recent surge require-
ments. In the future, any
extension is going to require
CNO's approval," continued
DiRosa.
"We will try to prevent those
as much as possible but some-
times world events will dic-
tate that change. I think we
all understand that because

said it will be a "new experience." He said
he has some idea of what to expect from
talking to co-workers and friends who
have previously deployed to Cuba and so
he wasn't going "completely in the dark."
The group will also get additional mis-
sion-specific training at Ft. Lewis, Wash.
before completing their journey to Cuba.
The next day was more joyous with two
groups returning from Cuba and Kuwait
deployments.
Twenty-seven personnel returned from
Guantanamo Bay, flying into the NAS
Jacksonville Air Terminal.
HN Maggie Borum was greeted by her
boyfriend, HM3 Enrique Sisneros as she
returned home. "It feels really good to be
back," she said. Of her medical duties, she
said working in the detainee clinic was a
"unique and challenging experience and
one through which she learned a lot." She

"tool sheds." She said she talked to her boy-
friend nearly every day by phone and also
regularly e-mailed him and her family.
The personnel returning from a seven-
month deployment in Kuwait Feb. 24
were equally happy to be home. Seven
deployed personnel were jubilantly greet-
ed by family, friends and staff at JIA and
three others returned on a separate flight.
Kathy Tavassoli hurried through trans-
portation security to meet her husband at
the gate. "All of our neighbors have their
American flags flying for his return. I just
can't wait to see Jeff," said Tavassoli. Lt.
Cmdr. Jeff Tavassoli, an orthopedic sur-
geon, looking tired but happy to see his
wife said, "it is great to be back. We left at
1 p.m. on Friday their time. It was a long
flight."

Navy selects firm

to negotiate for

largest housing

privatization

From CNRSE
The Department of the Navy has select-
ed GMH Communities Trust today to
enter into exclusive negotiations for the
design, construction, management and
maintenance of the affordable, quality
military family housing at 11 Navy bases
in five Southeast states. This initiative is
one of the largest public-private venture
(PPV) housing initiatives to date.
The specific Navy Southeast Project
family housing locations include: NAS
Jacksonville; Naval Weapons Station,
Charleston, S.C.; NSB Kings Bay, Ga.;
NS Mayport; NAS Key West, Fla.; Naval
Support Activity Panama City, Fla.; NAS
Pensacola, Fla.; NAS Whiting Field, Fla.;
Naval Construction Battalion Center,
Gulfport, Miss.; NAS Meridian, Miss.;
and NAS Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth,
Texas.
The 50-year term of the project will
begin with a six-year Initial Development
Period (IDP) valued at approximately
$772 million.
The National Defense Authorization Act
for Fiscal Year 1996, Section 2801, pro-
vides a series of powerful authorities that
allows military services to enter into long-
term agreements with private industry to
design, finance, construct, own, operate,
maintain and professionally manage pub-
lic/private housing ventures.
For more information on the Navy's
Public/Private Venture program, visit
http://www.housing.navy.mil/.
Congressionally authorized since
1996, the Military Housing Privatization
Initiative allows the Department of
Defense, and the Department of the Navy,
to work with the private sector to upgrade
the quality of family housing and operate
and maintain that housing. The family
housing assets are leveraged with private
investment to accomplish housing con-
struction goals faster and at a lower cost
than military construction.

First port call: rite of passage



for a husband and wife


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


M mention Palma,
Spain, and my
husband's eyes
light up. He himself can not
say the words without the
corners of his mouth liter-
ally curling into a smile. He
tries to hide it, like someone
swallowing back a yawn,
but it is obvious. Dustin
remembers the island in
Spain with the same pas-
sion for which some people
remember their first kiss.
Palma, Spain was my
husband's first port-call on
his first six-month deploy-
ment. Perhaps Sailors
always remember their first
port-call with fondness, but
Dustin's joy is excessive and
sorely misplaced.
You see, Dustin made one
horrible mistake in Palma:
he called me ... drunk. He
had not yet learned the art
of calling your wife as soon
as you get on dry land but
before you've had a good
time.
There I was sitting in
my pajamas, feeding our
new son a bottle, when the
phone rang and I heard my
husband's voice for the first
time in weeks. Behind him,
though, I also heard the
steady beat of music and
the hoots and hollers of peo-


ple having a good time.
I had been waiting for
his call for so long. I had
been dreaming of what we'd
say to one another. I had
a whole list of questions
and things I wanted to tell
him. But as soon as Dustin
called me "babe," I knew he
was drunk. Our conversa-
tion was headed no where
good. I regret to admit that
I hung up on my husband
that night.
Despite all this, six years
later, the word Palma still
brings a smile to Dustin's
face, which elicits an imme-
diate jab in the side from
me.
I recounted this episode
in my book and the passage
has evoked lots of response
from readers. Apparently
there are three types of mil-
itary wives: those who revel
in their spouse's port-call
enjoyment ("He deserves
all the fun and relaxation,"
they say); those who dread
port-calls ("He's visiting
all these fun places while
I'm stuck at home with the
kids? No fair!"); and finally,
those who are glad for their
husbands, but don't want
to hear about it ("Have fun,
don't call me drunk, and
bring home some pearls,
would you?").
There is this same polar-
ization at spouse-club meet-


ings when the ship is about
to pull into port. Half the
spouses dread the obvious
comparison between their
husband's foreign travels
and their own homebound
life.
The other half scolds
the first half for not hav-
ing compassion for their
spouse's hard work and
much-earned liberty. In my
time as a military wife, I've
felt both of these emotions
equally, and often at the
same time.
Yes our spouses are work-
ing hard, defending our
freedom and earning a liv-
ing, but that doesn't make
staying home any easier.
Despite the pride we have
in our spouses, it's difficult
knowing that he's eating.
exotic cuisine and drink-
ing fine wine when you're
hauling the kids to tee-ball
practice and unsuccessfully
potty training a three-year
old.
Our rational brains tell
us one thing, our emotional
brains another. That's ok.
It's perfectly human to feel
like you will spit nails when
your husband tells you all
the Spanish women are
beautiful, as my husband
did that night.
This doesn't make you
a bad wife or unfit to be a
military spouse. (For the


record, however, Dustin's
behavior on the phone was
decidedly not "perfectly
human," but rather a little
piggish.)
Some readers were
upset-or, "appalled,"
rather-that I hung up
on Dustin. Fear not, he
had already had too many
. drinks for my boldness to
have the impact I desired.
(Later Dustin admitted that
he would have hung up on
him, too.)
After all this, you may
be wondering why Dustin
still smiles when he thinks
of Palma. For the answer,
please revisit the above pig
comment. Then remember
that the first port-call is a
rite of passage for Sailors,
something that an angry
wife can't take away.
But I'm not that bitter
anymore. Really, I'm not.
After all, Dustin brought
home some nice Majorca
pearl earrings for me. And
Syes, he smiles every time I
wear them...because they
make him think of Spain.

Davitt and

named

Jax

Civilians

of the Year
By Marsha Childs
NHJ Marketing
Naval Hospital
Jacksonville's Com-
manding Officer
Capt. Raquel Bono pre-
sented the 2006 Civilian of
the Year awards to Nurse
Educator Kathleen Davitt
(Category I) and Health
Benefits Advisor Maxine
Lawrence (Category II) for
their outstanding dedica-
tion and service to the com-
mand. In addition to being
named Civilians of the
Year, Davitt and Lawrence
were also awarded the
Meritorious Civilian Service
Award.
Davitt, a registered nurse,
was cited for her creativ-
ity in coordinating numer-
ous educational classes and
providing the nursing staff
with opportunities to con-
tinue their education. A
direct result of the classes
is improved patient care
and heightened customer
service skills. Davitt also
taught advanced and pedi-
atric life support classes to
230 medical personnel. She
provided hospital orienta-
tion to 23 newly commis-
sioned ensigns and helped
several to prepare for their
nursing boards.
"It made me feel wonder-


Kathleen Davitt
ful. I love my job! I get the
opportunity to work with
nurses, doctors and corps-
men from all over the coun-
try who are truly great
professionals. The cama-
raderie here is wonderful.
I also get to interact with
educational professionals
from local hospitals and
universities," said Davitt,
upon learning of her selec-
tion. "I'm constantly learn-
ing new things and meet-
ing new people. The Navy
is a big transient fam-
ily and many of the staff
that I have worked with
in the past come back
to Jacksonville to work
again. So not only do I get
to meet people, but I also
get to keep in touch with
them through the years.
We should all be proud to
work for such an outstand-
ing organization."
Her pride for the naval
hospital runs in the fam-
ily. Her father, Lt. Cmdr.
Raymond Hennessey,
served in the Navy for 30
years and volunteers at the
hospital twice a week.
Lawrence, is a health
benefits advisor. She over-
sees day-to-day operations
at the TRICARE Assistance
Center at the NAS Jax
Navy Exchange. She has
tirelessly worked with
active duty service mem-
bers, retirees and their fam-
ilies to ensure they under-
stand their health and den-

tal plans.
Her broad knowl-
edge of military medi-
cine and commitment to
the Navy earned her the
"Many Faces, One Voice"
TRICARE Communications
and Customer Service
Award for 2006. She was
selected from hundreds of
nominees across the coun-
try and around the world.
"I very much want to be
an advocate for the hos-
pital. I am proud to work
here. We have all inclu-
sive services-the doctor,
laboratory and pharmacy
are under one roof. I tell
patients to give us a try
and when they do, they are
usually surprised at the
high level of service," said
Lawrence.
"Many of our families
don't have experience with
civilian doctors to compare
with military medicine to
know the difference. Those
who do, understand what
a great service we provide.
I think the commanding
officer is making a lot of
positive changes and is pas-
sionate about customer ser-
vice."
Lawrence is very empa-
thetic to her patients. She
is married to a retiree and
knows some of the challeng-
es military families face,
especially during deploy-.
ments. Her goal is to pro-
vide outstanding service to
all who enter her office.

added that although the "Death
Rattlers" were the first squadron
off the flight deck, all the squad-
rons of CVW-9 participated in the
mission.
Recognizing that success in the


region will be a direct result of
the whole team effort; Rear Adm.
Kevin Quinn, commander, Carrier
Strike Group 3 had this message
for the men and women aboard
Stennis.


"I expect everyone in the
strike group to be fully prepared
to conduct combat operations,"
said Quinn. "I am 100 percent
confident that every Sailor and
Marine in the strike group will


act with honor, commitment and
courage throughout our time in
Fifth Fleet."
The strike group is currently
supporting Operation Enduring
Freedom as well as conducting
maritime security operations
(MSO).
MSO set the conditions for secu-
rity and stability in the maritime
environment as well as comple-
ment the counter-terrorism
and security efforts of regional
nations. MSO deny internation-
al terrorists use of the maritime
environment as a venue for attack
or to transport personnel, weap-
ons and other material.
The strike group is comprised
of Carrier Air Wing 9, Destroyer
Squadron 21, the Nimitz-class
aircraft carrier USS John C.
Stennis, guided-missile cruiser
USS Antietam (CG 54), guided-
missile destroyers USS Prebte
(DDG 88) and USS OiKane (Dfl

FRC-SE completes F/A-18 in record time


By Frank Taormina
Public Affairs Specialist
Fleet Readiness Center, Southeast,
Cecil Commerce Center Detachment,
completed work on an F/A-18C air-
craft and delivered it to the customer in
record time. JC01, the center's designation
for the aircraft, was delivered to VMFAT-
101 in Miramar, Calif. Feb. 16.
JC01 was inducted at the center Oct.
30 of last year and went through a PMI-1
stand alone inspection to determine what
work would be completed. As a result of
the tedious and time-consuming inspec-
tion, it was determined that structural,
mechanical, and electrical maintenance
would be required in addition to three
required structural modifications.
The standard turn-around-time for this


type and quantity of work is 165 days and
FRC-SE completed the work in 109 days,
56 days ahead of schedule.
Bruce McCurdy, F/A-18 PMI product
manager, Cecil Commerce Center said,
"The reduction in turn-around-time is
due to diligent teamwork and the appli-
cation of Lean/SixSigma and the use of
a Gantt chart. The entire maintenance
team received support from every disci-
pline involved in completing the work and
returning the aircraft to the customer."
The maintenance was completed with
a minimum amount of overtime due to
Lean/SixSigma methodologies being used
at FRC-SE, a process of 'trimming the fat'
that is producing results daily. A Gantt

The Flight Line Caf6 also known as
the "galley" offers a variety of healthy

to find something to your liking.
CSs working at NAS Jacksonville

"I enjoy coming to work every day and
receiving this award is an extremely
motivating experience."
CSs man the Flight Line Caf6 24

the next meal is ready on time. Each

because we are not putting recyclable

about $24.000. Thi- money can be tusedi
to upgrade our facilities, buy landscap-

of that nature."
The recycling center is run by three
permanent employees and Sailors roman
the Transient Personnel Unit who are
assigned here on a temnporairy basis.
"Every morning we start our day by


picking up recyclable items from around
the base. We have two trucks and hit
about 50 buildings here each week.
Once that task is completed. we come
back to the center, unload the truck-
and sort through everything." explained

-\ added Craig. "Of course more material means
we need more people to operate the center, but
that would be a good problem to have."
Recycling is an all-hands effort. "Our custom-


ers can help us by separating their items and
not throw trash in with recyclable material,"
said Josi. "Also, please remember that we do
not take certain item -isuch as wood and haz-
ardous material -uch as oil and oil containers.

The center is located on Birmingham Road
adjacent to the MWR Auto Hobby Shop. Special
windows are located in the front of the center
for drop-off items 24 hours a day, seven days
a week. Each window is specifically labeled
for cardboard, plastic, glass, paper and alu-

accept newspapers. There is a collection area
located across the street that takes newspa-

N aval Hospital
Jacksonville is
observing National
Patient Safety Awareness
Week, March 4-10 and
embraces the week's theme,
"Patient Safety: A Road
Taken Together."
If a medical error occurs,
it, is often a result of a series
of small failures that are
individually not big enough
to cause an accident, but
combined can begin the pro-
cess toward error.
Patients can ensure a
safer experience with the
health care system by being
involved and informed
about their treatment.
Improving patient safety
requires continuous"learn-
ing and constant communi-
cation e-tween caregivers,
c'--l nizatiuns, and patients.
I, .,n', - ha, a role in
patient safety, and every-
one will benefit from its
successes.
What can consumers do to
make sure they have a safer
experience with the health
care system? The National
Patient Safety Foundation
suggests these steps to
help make your health care
experience safer:
Become a more
informed health care
consumer:
* Seek information about
illnesses or conditions that
affect you.
* Research options and
possible treatment plans.
* Choose a doctor, clinic,
pharmacy, and hospital
experienced in the type of
care you require.


* Ask questions of your
doctor, nurse, pharmacist,
or benefits plan coordina-
tor.
* Seek more than one
opinion.
Keep track of your
history
* Write down your medi-
cal history including any
medical conditions you
have, illnesses, immuniza-
tions, allergies, hospitaliza-
tions, all medications and
dietary supplements you're
taking, and any reactions
or sensitivities you've expe-
rienced.
* Write down the names
and phone numbers of your
doctors, clinics, and phar-
macies for quick and easy
reference.
Work with your doctor
and other health care
professionals as a team
*. Share your health his-
tory with your care team.
* Share up-to-date infor-
mation about your care
with everyone who's treat-
ing you.

By Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina
NAS Jax Chapel

Aman in his elderly years was lying
on his deathbed. He turned to his
wife and said, "you know Gladys,
you have always been with me through
the good times and the bad times. Do you
remember the time I lost my job? You
were right there by my
side. How about the time I
had that terrible accident?
You were there to call the
ambulance when I fell off
the roof. And during those
dark years of the depres- -.-
sion ... when we had noth-
ing . . . you were there."
"During all those times,
Gladys, you were right
there... in the valley of my :
despair. Now, here I am.
I'm lying here in terrible
pain facing death's door. It "/
is the deepest valley expe-
rience of my life and you're
right here by my side as Chaplain (Li
always. You know what
Gladys, you're bad luck!" he continued.
This man's humorous response uncovers
an underlying sadness. In him, we find a
man that in the midst of his "valley" expe-
rience looked only for someone to blame.
When it comes to matters of life, death,
sadness, loss, grief or distress you can do
one of two things: you can lay the blame
on others or you can lay claim to God's
manifold resources.
Indeed, the valley experiences in life
can lead us to say and do things that will
reveal the true nature of our spirit. You
may be very familiar with "valley-type"
experiences.
You may be in the middle of one right
now. You may be trying to find your way
out of the valley and keep your faith intact
in the process.
What is this "valley" thing anyway?
Well, we might as well know because we
will find that much of living is done in
the valley. In its most extreme form liv-
ing in the valley involves the crisis of loss,
the humiliation of marital unfaithfulness,
the frustration and despair of addiction or
even the pain of rebellious children.

life that we have to prove our stamina and
strength.
Oh yes! Thank God for the occasional '.-.

the beautiful sunrises and the inspira- -

of the heavens, but shortly
thereafter we return to the

we open our eyes to God's
power, wisdom, providence
) Joe Molina and everlasting love and
mercy. Therefore dwelling
in the valley appears to be divided between
the victims and the victors.
Which one are we?
If we're going to persevere and overcome
we need to lay the blame game aside and
learn the value and victory that comes
from embracing the manifold blessings
of God. This is what is commonly known
as "keeping the faith." Keeping the faith
separates the victors from the victims.
How then, do we keep the faith? Draw
near to God. Do so with the full assurance
of your faith. All those who truly believe in
God have access to God.
In drawing near we do so sincerely, wor-
shipfully and with an open heart as we
seek God's wisdom.
Well-known artist, Steve Green has a
song about valley living:
"Hidden valleys produce a life song.
Hidden valleys will make a heart strong.
Desperation can cause you to sing,
Hidden valleys turn shepherds to kings."
We find that great men and women of
God have drawn near to God during their
time in the valley. It is the place tl;at God
uses to shape his children.

Gastric


Bypass


Program


successes
By Loren Barnes
NH Jacksonville Public Affairs
The Naval Hospital
Jacksonville Gastric
Bypass Program
Support Group held their
annual fashion show Feb.
20 in the hospital's general
surgery clinic. The show,
which was themed "No
More Fat Tuesdays," cel-
ebrated the Gastric Bypass
program and its patient's
successes over recent years.
Several patients shared
their pre and post-operative
experiences in the show.
Each described positive life-
altering experiences regard-
ing their health restoration,
decrease in medication use,
and dramatic improvement
in self-esteem.
Surgical Services Director
Cmdr. Craig Shepps,
Gastric Bypass Surgery
Program director, Assistant
Director Cmdr. Eugene
Concepion and Noemi
Massari RNBSN, coordina-
tor/case manager for the
program, along with prior
surgeons who worked with
the team, were praised by
the patients.
Several told them, "you
saved my life!" They also
lauded the rest of the hos-
pital and its leadership for
their integrity, fairness and
care. Patient Calvin Lowell
is an example of the dra-
matic changes patients
often experience.
He entered the pro-
gram with a weight of 305
pounds. He trimmed that
to 284 pounds by the day
of the surgery. All patients
must lose 20 pounds on
their own using exercise,
diet and self-discipline to
qualify for the procedure.
Before the surgery,
Lowell had many medical
challenges including diabe-
tes requiring insulin injec-
tions, high blood pressure,
back pain and sleep apnea.
He wasn't exercising and he
used a scooter for mobility.
"I should be dead, that's
it in a nutshell," he said.
Today, his weight is
184 pounds, and he's gone
from wearing a 4X shirt
to a medium. His diabetes
is controlled with main-
tenance medication and
he just uses an arm brace
for support. An avid auto
enthusiast, he is once again
.n.-inflg his antique car
hobby.
How did his weight get
out of control? Lowell
explained, "You have no
idea how it creeps up on
you."
He recounted that his
problems started when he
was in a near fatal accident
in March 2000. That put
him in a wheelchair and
eventually a scooter. But,
he said, it also involved
poor diet and lack of exer-

members included Richard Schilke, Michelle Reiling, Ken Robinson, Calvin Lowell, Roddie
Williams, Terri Paala, Tony Sahioun, Linda Herman, Judy Atkinson, Lorna Mack and Veronica
Mowl. Hospital Gastric Bypass Surgery Program team members include Director Cmdr. Craig

cise.
"When you're body is at
the point it's about to shut
down on you, you've over-
loaded your organs, your
heart . . . this slow deteri-
oration just creeps up on
you.," continued Lowell.
"You say, awww . . . I'm
just a couple of pounds
ahead, and then I'm 20
pounds out but I can lose
that anytime, the holidays
are coming so I'll wait until
after those to do some-
thing about it. It doesn't
work that way, especially
when you get older and
you're basically immobile.
There was no way for me
to physically work it off. I
could have starved myself
and still not dropped the
weight."
"After the surgery, I felt
like I was cleansed, like I
had a transfusion, that the
bad. chemicals in my body
were flowing out and I was
receiving the good stuff.,"
Lowell said. "Obviously,
something went right and
I'm still here."
Lowell was just one of the
pageant participants who
shared how getting their
weight under control allevi-
ated a wide range of medi-
cal conditions.
Often burdened with dia-
betes medications prior to
surgery, an overwhelming
majority of patients were
removed from their diabe-
tes medications after sur-
gery as a result of weight
loss and healthy lifestyle
modifications.
With an average of 30
gastric bypass cases done at
the hospital each year, sta-
tistics demonstrated consis-
tent clinical improvement
in patient health as well as


a medication cost savings
of approximately $500 each
year for each patient.
As patient Roddie
Williams said, "I used to be
what you'd call a walking
pharmacy and I had little
self esteem. Now I have an
empty pharmacy and a lot
of self esteem and I attri-
bute a lot of that to this."
Williams went from taking
blood pressure and pain
medications and having
a pre-operative weight of
258 pounds to her present
weight of 190. She takes no
medications now and has
much more energy.
One unique fea-
ture of Naval Hospital
Jacksonville's gastric
bypass program is that,
through the support group,
patients are matched with
other patients who have
already had the surgery.
These mentors help pre-
pare them for the challeng-
es they'll face and they are
there for them to turn to
for advice and support even
as they recover and enjoy
healthier new lives.
"We offer monthly group
support meetings, sched-
uled guest speakers which
includes dietitians, psy-
chologists, pharmacists,
exercise-physiologists, sur-
geons, diabetic nurse edu-
cators and Wellness Center
staff. We've formed a week-
ly walking group which will
participate in a national
September Walkathon, and
our patients are creating
their own low sugar high
protein book of recipes,"
explained Massari.
"Gastric bypass surgery
isn't for everyone. It is a
serious decision that must
be made between a patient


and their provider consid-
ering all the advantages,
risks, other health fac-
tors and alternatives," she
added.
The Naval Hospital
Jacksonville Gastric Bypass
Program follows a "critical
pathway." This is a plan
that looks at the medical,
nutritional and behavior-
al aspects of the operative
weight loss.
This approach focuses on
an individualized agree-
ment between the patient,
family, surgeon and other
members of the health care
team."
"We're very proud of the
successes these and the
more than 700 other gastric
bypass patients have made*
since the program's begin-
nings in 1997," Shepps
said.

14 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, March 8, 2007


This column has covered the topic
of individual augmentees (IAs)
and their families in the past and
this edition brings a positive update on
IA deployments. A new command, the
Expeditionary Command Readiness Center
(ECRC) stood up in October 2006 with
responsibility to support IAs and families.
Their mission statement: "Train, equip,
certify, deploy, provide oversight, reach-
back and redeploy (return to sending com-
mand) Navy IA, in lieu of individuals and
provisional units deploying for nontradi-
tional expeditionary missions in support of
the global war on terrorism" outlines their
role.
Once a Sailor receives IA orders, the
ECRC takes responsibility for the Sailor.
While this is a young command they have
made considerable efforts and strides in
streamlining and consolidating stops prior
to and following deployment. This means
less time in transit and more time at home
for the Sailor. They have established effec-
tive relationships with the Army to insure
IAs are well-trained for this unique deploy-
ment. It is important to note that the
ECRC is responsible for all IAs, both active
duty and reservists.
The ECRC is located at the Naval
Amphibious Base Little Creek, Va., but
has detachments in Iraq, Kuwait and
Afghanistan as well as liaison represen-
tatives at training stations such as Fort
Jackson, S.C. These detachments, acces-
sible by service members 24/7; are tasked
with supporting IAs and .assisting with
issues that may arise during deployment,
such as pay issues, emergency leave, even
equipment/supply issues.
The ECRC is not just for the service
member but also serves as a conduit for
information and support for families. As
part of this support a hotline has been
established for families and Sailors. The
toll free number, 877-364-4302, is manned
24/7 by a person. "We got it [the hotline] in
place so families would be streamlined to
a person who can help right away." stat-
ed Cmdr. Mary Sadler, ECRC's IA family
readiness officer. "The hotline is only for-
warded to voice mail if the line is busy tak-

Newly renovated cabins


ready for occupancy

By MC2(SW/AW) Rebecca Kruck .
Staff W riter_____________ ft'" " "


The NAS Jax Morale, Welfare and
Recreation (MWR) cabins, locat-
ed just off Mustin Road by Naval
Hospital Jacksonville, have just received
a face-lift. Mark Craig, MWR facilities
maintenance manager described the pro-
cess.
"The renovations started about three or
four months ago," he said. "The rentals
are about four years old and they weren't
in bad shape, they were just kind of sterile.
Everyone seems to love them, but they had
vinyl tile, no decorations or pictures on the
wall or anything like that. They resembled
a hospital room more than a cottage."
The initial look of the cabins was due to
lack of funding. But with new money, MWR
was able to go back and make upgrades.
"We made several changes to make them
more cozy," said Craig. "We put in ceramic
tile and carpeted floors, repainted the walls
in softer colors, hung pictures and added
flowers, plants and other accessories. We
also changed the bedding and blinds and
added window treatments."
According to Craig, the list of guests who
stay at the cabins varies quite a bit. "We
see retirees, active duty members and in
some cases Sailors will use the cabins to
house guests when they have change of
commands, retirements or weddings."
Craig also added that some students from
VP-30 stay there while going to school,
as well as, reservists who may have been
recalled and need a place to stay because
they can use their per diem to pay for it.
The cabins are approximately 900-sq. ft.,
with two bedrooms, one bath, a full kitchen
that includes cookware, flatware, glasses
and utensils and a washer and dryer. The
master bedroom has a queen-sized bed
with 27-inch television, the second bed-
room has two twin beds and the living
room, which also has a 27-inch television
with a DVD/VCR player, has a couch with
a pullout bed.
According to Craig, these cabins don't

SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


New command for IAs,


new resource for families


By Beth Wiruth
Special Contributor


ing care of other family members."
Families accessing support through this
hotline can also expect follow-up calls to
ensure that situations and needs have
been resolved. While neither the hotline
nor command provides direct services it
does serve as an 'information and refer-
ral' resource for families along with the
ombudsman from their service member's
sending command. Sadler adds the ECRC
"is the conduit that can help an IA family
member access the programs and organiza-
tions out there and we are positioned to do
that."
Cmdr. Laura Venable, ECRC's execu-
tive officer, in a telephone interview said
more support for families is under devel-
opment. "We have held briefs with family
members which have been well received
and are continually looking for more ways
to touch more families in the future." One
such effort is CNIC's publications: The
IA Sailor Handbook and The IA Family
Handbook. The ECRC is responsible for
the content of these publications which will
be reviewed and updated regularly.
The ECRC Web site, www.ecrc.navy.mil,
is another resource for families and ser-
vice members. Venable adds, "The Web
site is just a start but will continue to be
built to be more informative for families."
Another recommendation is the Navy
Knowledge Online (NKO) Web site for IAs
and their families. If you have not accessed
the NKO Web site you can establish your
own account as a spouse. Logon to www.
nko.navy.mil and follow the tutorial to
establish you account. You will find the
IA Spouse Support page under the link to
'Navy Family Community'.
There are currently approximately
10,000 Sailors deployed as IAs in loca-
tions such as Kuwait, Afghanistan, Horn of
Africa, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and Iraq.
This new command brings training, sup-
port, equipment and family support under
one roof and that is good news for Sailors
and families.
This column will continue to give updates
on the commands continuing effort to
support IAs and their families. In future
weeks, we will look at the training provid-
ed for IAs as well as re-entry support for
Sailors and families.

Switching careers: Troops go to school


By Tami Faram
LIFELines
Some say they are called
to teach. Others enter
the teaching profession
once they have gained experi-
ence from another career. It's for
these career switchers that the
Department of Defense (DoD)
and Department of Education
(DOE) together operate Troops-
to-Teachers. The program enables
service members to take their
job experience from the military
and apply it to a new career as a
teacher.
Troops-to-Teachers was estab-
lished by the DoD in 1994. In
2000, the DOE took over pro-
gram funding and oversight.'
The No Child Left Behind Act of
2001 is providing $18 million for
Troops-to-Teachers through 2006.
The Defense Activity for Non-
Traditional Education Support
(DANTES) currently adminis-
ters the program in Pensacola,


Florida.
Potential teachers as well
as school districts can access a
nationwide referral system with a
database of participants. Referral
or placement assistance is avail-
able to service members with at
least six years of active duty and
reservists who have six years of
service but aren't eligible for the
GI Bill or state education ben-
efits.
Assistance includes a network
of state placement assistant
offices that provide information
about certification and help with
identifying teaching positions. An
online teacher job referral service
is also available so teacher candi-
dates can post their resumes or
search for job vacancies.
Not only do these new teach-
ers benefit from the program,
but students and school districts
also gain because school districts
can hire experienced, disciplined,
enthusiastic individuals in a field
that is accustomed to personnel


shortages. Students benefit by
having positive role models in the
classroom.
"In the nation we have a teacher
shortage, and with the significant
drawdown that occurred for the
military in the early 1990s, some
service members wanted to con-
tinue to be active and involved,"
says John Malino, assistant sec-
retary of defense for military com-
munity and family policy. "After
serving their country through
the military, many people want
to continue to serve. And no one
goes into teaching for money."
Under Troops-to-Teachers,
members of the armed services
who are interested in teaching
elementary or secondary school
must have a bachelors degree or
higher from an accredited college.
But there are other teaching
positions in which a bachelors
degree is not required. Depending
on the state in which you want
to teach, you could get an alter-
native teaching certificate based


on your current academic back-
ground and a school districts
immediate needs.
Participants in the Troops-to-
Teachers program can also find
jobs as vocational or techni-
cal teachers based on their skill
levels, without having a current
teaching certificate. Individuals
interested in teaching vocation-
al subjects such as automotive
repair, electronics, construction
trades, etc., need one year of col-
lege and six years of related expe-
rience.
The best time to apply to the
program is within two years of
separation or retirement from the
military, though service members
can apply while they are still in
the military. They can use GI or
other education benefits to take
needed certification courses or to
get a bachelors degree.
Troops-to-Teachers provides
financial assistance to eligible
individuals in the form of a sti-
pend for up to $5,000 in education


requirements, and the money can
also be used to pay teacher cer-
tification costs. Individuals who
agree to teach in a high-needs
school can qualify for a bonus of
$10,000 from Troops-to-Teachers.
Some of the most recent chang-
es made to the Troops-to-Teachers
program have resulted in the
extension of financial assistance
to individuals within one year of
retirement, and to members of
the National Guard or reserve
with at least 10 years of service
who agree to an additional three
years of reserve service.
Your base Education Center or
Navy College Program office has
application forms for Troops-to-
Teachers, or you can download
an application or call (800) 231-
6242 or DSN 922-1320 to request
one. If you're seeking a second
career in public education, you
can also register in the Public and
Community Service Personnel
Registry (PACS) through your
base Transition Assistance Office.

What to do with sick baby


By Kelli Kirwan
LIFELines
It never fails. It's Friday night and
all the regular clinics are closed.
Your child begins to run a low-
grade fever and to complain of a sore
throat. By 2 a.m., the fever is rising
and you're not sure what the cause
is, or what to do. It isn't necessarily
an emergency in the life-threatening
sense - or is it? The wee hours of the
morning can blur your perspective.
After all, this is your child, and you're
not a medical professional.
Did you ever wonder why illness
seems to strike when all the clinics
are closed? It seems to be universal.
But you do have several options for
information and treatment.
One invaluable resource is the
TRICARE regional toll-free phone
numbers. Registered nurses at the
TRICARE Line for Care (TLC) are
available 24 hours a day, seven days
a week. They can walk you through
the symptoms and suggest a possi-
ble course of home care. They can
tell you other symptoms to watch
for and whether you should go to
the Emergency Room or make a doc-
tors appointment within the next 24


hours. Select your region from the
map and under "important phone
numbers" you will find the phone
number for the "After Hours Nurse
Advice Line".
The nurses can't recommend medi-
cations to be taken (neither over-the-
counter nor prescription) unless it's
written into the protocol that they
must follow.
The protocol defines symptoms and
courses of treatment whether it's
home care or professional medical
assistance. The protocol is written by
doctors and overseen by each regions
Medical Director, who is also a doctor.
Some areas have their own version
of the TLC. For example, William
Beaumont Army Medical Center has
the Tel-A-Nurse (TAN) line, a local
number with a consulting nurse on-
site. The nurse can give health-relat-
ed advice, perform triage, and book
appointments for the same day you
call.
The drawback to the local advice
line is that it has set hours and is not
available 24/7. The advantage is that
you will be speaking with someone
who has a working knowledge of your
health-care facility's policies and pro-
cedures.

Ask your primary care manager
(PCM) if this service is available in
your area.
Another option that may be avail-
able is a self-care book. These books
are produced by individual health-
care facilities and can be a great
source of information. Self-care books
are free of charge and list symptoms,
courses of action, and when to seek
professional medical care.
Taking Care of Your Child is the
title of the self-care book produced
by the Naval Medical Center in San
Diego. It is complete from Pregnancy
through Adolescent Sexuality. If you
have not received one of these self-
care books, check with your PCM to
see if your area has one.
There is always the option of the
emergency room (ER). If it's a medi-
cal emergency, never hesitate to go
straight to your ER. Knowing what
symptoms indicate an emergency will
help you make that decision.
Many hospitals have brief self-care
classes or wellness centers that can
provide information regarding symp-
toms that should have medical atten-
tion right away.

DiROSA: Fleet master

chief pays visit to Jax

'From Page 1
we wear the uniform to serve. When you come home
from deployment, you should have the equal amount of
dwell time. But you need to remember that you are most
ready because you have been out there and are trained.
So if we do have a short surge requirement, you will
go back on deployment. We did this during Hurricane
Katrina. And we will continue to do this."
DiRosa also discussed her concern for those IAs cur-
rently deployed and their family members. "We need to
make sure we don't lose contact with our shipmates on
IA duty. We also need to ensure their families know we
are concerned. That also includes those single Sailors,
We need to make sure we maintain some kind of cod-'
tact because there is someone who is worried about that
individual. So, I want everyone who knows someone on
IA duty to contact that person and let them know some-
one cares about them," she stated.
Advancement policies, mentoring and education were
other topics DiRosa touched on. "We are currently look-
ing at how we handle ranking boards and how we select
our future leaders. We have a lot of changes coming
down the pipes. Each one of you is a leader. We need to
reach out and develop our junior people. My challenge is
to you is to look and see who you are mentoring. Reach
out and touch somebody. Develop our Navy because
that's what leadership is all about," she continued.
"Another big issue is education. In the near future, we
plan to shift the focus on education requirements. We
want to reward education and are looking to possibly
give advancement points based on the amount of educa-
tion you have and create a culture where we value edu-
cation in our organization. We are also looking at tuition
assistance. There is discussion about raising the limit to
$4,500 and eliminating credit caps."
Her final comments regarded safety issues. "Our CNO
is a little upset about the number of condolence letters
he has had to write lately. We are looking at Sailor risk
reductions regarding drunk driving and safety inci-
dences. We 'need to be more proactive on this. You need
to check on one another and help your shipmates out.
It's up to you to prevent that unnecessary condolence
letter," said DiRosa. "We need to keep one another in
check. We're like brothers and sisters, we're a family.
We are a Navy that cannot be matched by anyone. We
are a winning team. So I ask that you get involved and
keep one another in check."
DiRosa then introduced her assistant, 2006 Atlantic
Fleet Sea Sailor of the Year MMC(SS/SW/AW/DV)
Jordan Rosado who gave a motivational, speech about
his naval career. "I've been in the Navy eight years and
never thought I'd be where I am today. Any one of you
can accomplish what I have if you set your mind to it.
Look out for your junior Sailors and be the best leader
you can be," he said.
After their visit to NAS Jax, DiRosa and Rosado head-
ed to NS Mayport and NSB Kings Bay, Ga.
"When you come to visit a base, it's hard to go to just
one place. There is so much in this area, we have',soe
many assets here. I hope to see as much as I can on this
trip," said DiRosa.


HOSPITAL VISIT: 'You never know the talent that serves amongst us'


From Page 1


"You're always a corps-
man. That's something you
always carry with you," she
said.
In answering the Sailors'
questions, she addressed a
number of personnel topics
currently on the table with
Navy leadership. Focusing
on the Chief of Naval
Operation's emphasis on
deployability and employ-
ability of Navy resources,
she said numerous enlisted
personnel policies are being
reviewed.
For instance, policies
which restricted Sailors
serving in combat areas
from 1ikin ,-advancement
exams. Another is "level-
ing the playing field" for
assignment incentive pay


(AIP). Referring to the
Naval Hospital Jacksonville
presence at the Joint Task
Force Detention Center
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba,
she emphasized that AIP
should more evenly address
the unpleasant, very dan-
gerous and extremely
stressful and challenging
environments Sailors find
themselves as they support
the war on terrorism.
More words of advice
were, "Read the writing on
the wall and try to make
career adjustments" in light
of the current drive toward
consolidating or civilianiz-
ing many military billets.
As an example of a Sailor
that others should emulate,
Green introduced DiRosa to
the hospital's Junior Sailor
of the Year CS2 Sonny

culinary specialist, who cur-
rently works in the hospital
galley, has been selected to

DiRosa congratulated
Lalatag, noting what an
incredible honor such an
assignment is.


She told her audience,
"You never know the talent

In conclusion she said,
"Thank you for your service,

munity here and what you

month of March Women's
History Month to recognize
these contributions and
promote the teachings of
women's history.


The theme for Women's
History Month 2007 is
"Generations of Women
Moving History Forward."
The essay theme is: to
choose a woman, of any
background and from any
historical period (includ-
ing the present), and write
about how that woman has
been an inspiration in your
life. Explain how this per-
son has made a difference
in who you are today.

between 750 and. 1,000
words and must be typed
in a Word Document and

submit the typed original


by mail or by email.
3. The author's name,
daytime phone number
must be submitted on a
cover page, accompanying
the essay.
4. All essays will be
judged on the author's
knowledge of the individual,
originality of ideas, devel-
opment of point of view,
insight into essay theme,
clarity of expression, orga-
nization.
5. Essays should include
a good (i.e., persuasive)
explanation of why the
author chose to focus on a
particular woman and what
the woman means to the.
author.
Prizes
The winner will have


their essay published in
the Jax Air News and will
receive a trophy at the
Women's History Breakfast
being held March 15. The
winner will be allowed'to

Xerox Trade-In Program

benefits NMCI users


By EDS Communications

Xerox offers a no-
cost trade-in pro-
gram that allows
NMCI users to exchange
Xerox-branded printer
supplies, such as toner
cartridges, that are
incompatible with new
printers.
When a Xerox printer
has been upgraded to
the newer model, users
may be left with supplies
from the original printer
that are not usable due
to their incompatibility
with the upgraded model.
Xerox will exchange
those existing Xerox-
branded supplies for


compatible supplies at
no cost, saving time and
money and preventing
product waste.
The exchange must be
even in quantity, mean-
ing Xerox will replace 10
incompatible cartridges
with 10 compatible car-
tridges.
In order to be eligible
for exchange, supplies
must be less than three
months old from the
invoice date and in new,
unopened and resalable
condition.
Additional information
about the Xerox exchange
program can be found on
the NMCI Homeport Web
site at www.homeport.

Navy urges Sailors to take steps to avoid identity theft


By Fleet and Family Support
Program Marketing
T he Navy is remind-
ing Sailors to be vigi-
lant in protecting
their personal information.
According to the Federal Trade
Commission (FTC), identity theft
occurs when someone uses your
personal information, such as
your name, Social Security num-
ber (SSN), credit card number
or other identifying information
without your permission to com-
mit fraud or other crimes.
"Sailors can reduce the risk
of becoming a victim of identity
theft if they use all diligence pos-
sible," said Al Starks, a Fleet and
Family Support Program finan-
cial educator at Joint Reserve


Base, Ft. Worth, Texas.
"Always be alert and take
nothing for granted when
it comes to your identity."
"The best way to deter identity
theft is to make it harder for
thieves to gain access to your per-
sonal information," added.
"Guard your SSN, and never
put your SSN on your checks."
Starks, a victim of identity theft,
also recommended the use of a
good crosscut shredder to destroy
all documents and mail that con-
tain personal information.
"You may be surprised by how
much information a thief could
get just by rummaging through
your trash," he said.
"Keep an eye on your mail
to ensure that bills and
other financial documents


arrive on time, and follow up
with creditors if they don't."
Protections on computers and
other electronic equipment
are equally important, Starks
explained.
"Robust passwords, a good fire-
wall,.regular updates to your
operating system and anti-virus
software, are necessary," empha-
sized Starks. "If you conduct busi-
ness over the Internet, limit your
interaction to only those sites that
have security encryption."
For those that. find themselves
the victims of identity theft, the
FTC recommends contacting
any one of the three major cred-
it bureaus to place a fraud alert
on the credit file. As soon as the
credit bureau confirms the fraud
alert, notices will be sent to the


other two companies. Individuals
will then receive credit reports
from all three companies free of
charge.
"It's best to check your credit
report at least twice a year, mak-
ing sure you get reports from all
three of the major credit bureaus,"
advised Stark. '
The FTC also recommends that
victims of identify theft close
accounts that may have been
tampered with or opened fraudu-
lently, file a police report and file
a complaint with the FTC.
The FTC has established a
Web page for military personnel
at www.consumer.gov/military,
with each service having a des-
ignated section. The Navy's link
has a direct online connection for
reporting identity theft at www.


consumer.gov/military/navy.htm.
The FTC maintains a database of
identity theft cases used by law
enforcement agencies for investi-
gations.
Filing a complaint also helps
the FTC learn more about identi-
ty theft and the problems victims
are having.
For more information on pre-
venting and recovering from iden-
tity theft, visit the FTC Web site
at www.consumer.gov/idtheft/,
contact the base legal department
or visit an FFSP financial educa-
tor.
To report identify theft to the
three major credit bureaus, con-
tact Equifax Fraud (800) 525-
6285, Experian Fraud (800) 397-
3742 and TransUnion Fraud (800)
680-7289.


American Legion looking for nominees for Spirit of Service awards


From the American Legion
The American Legion, chartered by Congress in 1919
as a patriotic, mutual-help, war-time veterans orga-
nization, now numbers nearly 3 million members

and their families.
For the seventh consecutive year, the American Legion
will present the Spirit of Service award to an enlisted
member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and
Coast Guard. Each service will select one winner based

BABY: What to do
From Page 16

An emergency room does not run on a
first-come, first-served basis; it accepts
patients based on a concept called triage
a French word that means "sorting." If
you're familiar with the categories of triage
before you go to the ER, you'll have a more
realistic expectation of how long you might
have to wait.
* Category 1 is a true emergency -
patients who need to have medical atten-
tion immediately or they will die.
* Category 2 covers patients who need
treatment within 30 minutes or their con-
dition will deteriorate and they could die.
* Category 3 patients are stable but need
treatment within several hours or their
condition will deteriorate.
* Category 4 patients have conditions
that are not urgnl. The patients are stable
and should be seen by their! I'CM within 24
hours.
* Category 5 patients have conditions
that are not urgent and do not need to be
seen within 24 hours. They should sched-
ule a routine appointment with their PCM.
No one wants to wait for a long time


Committee.
RecruitMilitary's partnership with
the President's National Hire Veterans
Committee (HireVets First), a U.S.
Department of Labor entity, was so suc-
cessful for the 12 nationwide events in
2006, that they are sponsoring 32 career
fairs across the nation this year.
For more information or to register as a
job-seeker, visit www.recruitmilitary.com

when they are sick
in an emergency room with a sick baby.
By using all the resources available, you
might be able to avoid having to go to the
ER. Keep in mind, though, that you are
not a trained medical professional. The
ER staff would rather see a child come in
and be triaged to a lesser category of emer-
gency care than to have something tragic
occur.
Another resource that you might have
overlooked is your neighbors. Know your
neighbors. That more experienced mom
who lives across the street could be a great
source of comfort and information when
you're not quite sure what to do. Often, if
you live in base housing, there is a medi-
cal corpsman somewhere on your street.
Experience is often the greatest source of
information, so take advantage of the col-
lective experience of your neighbors and
friends.
With today's technology and the infor-
mation available, we are now, more than
ever before, able to take responsibility for
our family's health care. It may seem like
you're alone when it's 2 a.m. and your baby
is miserable and crying - but you're not
alone. Help is often only a phone call away.
