ON THE HOMEFRONT
Lessons in the dugout
are no place for a mom
\By Sarah Smiley
S Tou stood at the tee, staring out
to the field, which seemed to
tL' reduce you to a small speck
; against a canvas of green grass and
red, dusty baseball dirt. Part boy and
,part baby, your knobby knees touched
- the middle, but your rounded
=mmy poked through the t-shirt
Ti.inging so low, it covered your shorts.
. You raised the bat to your shoulder.
The large, red batter's helmet wobbled
on your head. From the splintered
stands, behind home plate, I clutched
.my hands together.
; The coaches had initially suggested
we put you back in a younger league,
with the 4 to 5-year-olds. "He's small
'fAi- his age," they had said. "He might
et hurt." But I knew what they
meant. - your son can't catch a ball.
Xe doesn't run fast.' And sometimes
he misses when he swings.
-Dad spent hours in the front yard
working with you. Then he convinced
the coaches to let you play with the
*her 6-year-olds. "Sending him back,"
Dad said, "will break his spirit."
Thinking back on it now, as I sat
behind you, separated by a metal
fence at your very first game, I won-
dered if dad and I had made a mis-
take. The other kids will laugh at him,
I thought. He'll get the first "out."
Someone behind me said, "That boy
is -o small." A lump rose in my throat.
You, took a practice swing. The other
players and the spectators quieted
,to a few scattered whispers. All eyes
were on you, my child. You drew the
bat to your shoulder again, ready for
the real thing.
Please just let him get on first, I
thought. It will mean the world to
him. You swung the bat. The motion
was awkward and the bat was too
.high. You missed the ball. I lowered
my head to hide the sudden rush of
tears in my eyes. Someone from the
other team laughed.
The coach patted you on the back
and whispered in your ear. Then he
stood back and you pulled up the bat
again. With. a timid shift of your hips,
you tried to put all your 40 pounds
behind the next swing. The ball flew
from the tee and landed right at the
pitcher's feet. "He'll never make it to
first," someone said.
Now, I'm' not a screamer. I'm hard-
ly competitive, and I don't care for
sports. But right then, as your feet
left home plate, I stood in my seat and
yelled as loud as I could, "Run, Ford!
Don't look back, just run!"
But the ball beat you to the base.
You were out, and the inning was
over. You ran with the other kids to
the dugout. I rushed to meet you, but
you disappeared behind the cinder-
Will the kids tease him? I wondered.
Will he cry? Dad told me to let it go.
It's all part of the game, part of being
a boy, he said. After many roasts at
military parties, Dad knows that

to roll with the punches, and that
sometimes, oddly, males bond over

States fall short in
childcare and learning
From the National Association of Child
Care Resource and Referral Agencies
Anew state report card released
recently reveals that states fall
far short of meeting basic require-
ments needed to protect the health and
sAfety of children in child care, and to
promote their school readiness. !
'Out of 150 possible points, the aver-
age state score was only 70 points.
The report card ranks every state
(including the District of Columbia) on
15 basic criteria related to their current
childcare center standards and over-
sight: It also ranks the Department of
Defense (DoD), which has its own child-
care system. Compiled by the National
Association of Child Care Resource &
Referral Agencies (NACCRRA) and
released during its annual National
Policy Symposium, NACCRRA's ranking
of state childcare center standards and
oversight points toward an urgent need
in every state to improve standards and
oversight of childcare centers.
Only two states (Illinois and Nevada)
require a full background check of child-
care staff. Only eight states (plus the
DoD) address all 10 basic health and
safety benchmarks, such as fire drills,
administration of medication, preven-
tion of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome,
diapering and hand-washing and safe
Four states either allow or do not
specifically prohibit corporal punish-
ment. Only three states (plus the DoD)
conduct quarterly inspections of child-
care centers; eight do not even con-.
duct inspections annually. And, 21
states have no minimum educational
requirement for childcare teachers.
States were scored based on a point sys-
tem of 100 points for childcare standards
and 50 for oversight, for a total overall
possible score of 150 points.
The DoD received the highest
score (117 points). The next high-
est score, only 90 points, was received
by Illinois and New York. Idaho
scored the lowest, receiving 15 points.
Aside from the DoD, the states that
ranked within the top 10 best overall-
scoring from 90 to 82 points respective-
ly-are Illinois, New York,. Maryland,
Washington, Oklahoma, Michigan, North
Dakota, Tennessee, Minnesota and
Vermont. The weakest 10 overall-scor-
ing from. 15 to 58 points respectively-are

Understanding Lean Six Sigma: What is the DMAIIC process?
By Corey Schultz
CNRSE Public Affairs
As Navy Region Southeast begins the exciting
process of using Lean Six Sigma to better enable
warfighter readiness for the fleet, an important
term to understand is DMAIIC.
DMAIIC is a disciplined process that allows Lean Six
Sigma practitioners to address, implement and sustain
permanent improvements in an organization's processes
The DMAIIC steps are: Define, Measure, Analyze,
Improve, Implement and Control.
Define. Find a process in need of improvement. To
define the project, initiate action to address an identified
problem through a team problem-solving process. Select
an appropriate scope for the project and define how the
process can be improved to increase productivity. Finally,
as an important part of the define step, determine if there
are any easy, quick measures that can be implemented
immediately. The focus should be on significant improve-
Measure. Once the process has been defined, gather
data about process performance. Selection of the right
data to be collected is critical; the focus must remain on
data that is critical to the quality of the process. Ensure

that the people who own the process are part of the team;
for instance, if the process to be improved is the selection
of ombudsmen, identify ombudsmen and get their input.
Analyze. What does the data indicate is the cause
of the problem? What changes must be made? These
are questions that will shape the process analysis. The
analysis step addresses the root causes of the process to be
improved, so that the appropriate changes may be made to
improve the entire process.
Improve. Now that the problem is identified, the next
step is to identify the specific actions that will elimi-
nate unnecessary steps and defects in the process. The
Improve phase results in specific recommendations for
revising the process chosen for study and provides suffi-
cient detail to allow others not familiar with the process to
follow the revised process.
Implement. Once this step has been reached, take
appropriate actions based on the previous four steps. Now
is the time to execute the selected solution! And go beyond
implementing to evaluate that measurable improvement
has taken place.
Control. The process is not complete with implementa-
tion. To ensure that the sea change of Lean Six Sigma is
not merely transitory, sustain the improvements and con-
tinually measure the improved process.
DMAIIC is an important tool of Lean Six Sigma that
can greatly affect the future productivity of any organiza-
tion. It is detailed extensively in Lean Six Sigma litera-
ture such as Sailing through Lean Six Sigma by Brassard
& Ritter, LLC. For more information on Lean Six Sigma,

Free tax services at the NAS Jax Tax Center
Tax season is nearing its end. If
you've been procrastinating, come
to the NAS Jacksonville Tax Center
to have your taxes done.
NAS Jacksonville operates a tax cen-
ter to provide free tax preparation ser-
vices through a program called Voluntary
Income Tax Assistance (VITA). This pro-
gram saves Sailors hundreds of thousands
of dollars 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 pres-
sure Sailors to pay high additional rates
to get their refunds more quickly. VITA is
run entirely by volunteers. These volun-
teers are certified by the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) and the center will E-file
returns, ensuring fast refunds.
Who is eligible for free tax preparation
* active-duty service members and their
* retirees and their dependents.
* reservists on active duty for more than
* reservists within 30 days of demobili-
* reservists involved in pre-mobilization.
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
Couples wishing to file joint returns
should come to the tax center together. If
a spouse is unavailable, the spouse prepar-
ing the return will need to bring an IRS
Power of Attorney (Form 2848 available at
www.irs.gov) A general power of attorney
from the base legal office will not suffice.
Where and when:
The center is located at Building 13 at
the main gate, next to the Navy-Marine
Corps Relief Society office.
The VITA Tax Center is open Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 a.m.
to 4 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays - by appoint-
ment only. On April 14, the center will be
open for appointments only until 2 p.m. On
April 16-17, the center will be open from 8
a.m. to 7 p.m. for walk-ins only.

Going the second mile
By Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina
NAS Jax Chapel
Some time back I remember
reading about volunteerism
in America. I remember read-
ing about people that have gone the
extra mile to help others. These
were people that were just trying to
make the world a kinder and gentler
For instance, there was a man
in New York City who gathered,
repaired and handed out winter
gloves to homeless people in the city.
There was another in Virginia who
collected farmers' discarded potatoes
and delivered them to food kitchens
for the poor.
Some were recognized for their tire-
less and selfless efforts. Most were
not. There was no financial pay-off.
There were no fancy banquets in their.
honor attended by politicians and
other dignitaries. These were people
that simply stuck their necks out and
went the second mile. They went
beyond the boundaries of what was
expected from them.
Many still do. They may appear
radical and some may seem a little
eccentric in their focused zeal towards
volunteerism. For them going the
second mile is s
When we examine volunteerism and
the potential for liberating the human
spirit we will discover that the volun-
teer is as much blessed as the recipi-
ent of his/her service. Indeed, the old
adage becomes self evident in volun-
teerism: "It is more blessed to give
than to receive."

Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina
Or how about this old expression of
wisdom, "If some one forces you to go
one mile, go with him two miles."
Here is where we need to pay atten-
tion. In this saying we find the over
riding ethic for helping those in need.
I'll even go as far as to say that going
the second mile is the ultimate mea-
surement of "love" in action.
The historical origin of this saying
is interesting. This aphorism origi-
nated during the Roman occupation
of Palestine in the first century A.D.
At the time the common citizenry of
Palestine could be forced into the ser-
vice of the Romans.
They could be compelled to supply
food, lodging and even carry a sol-
dier's gear while on a march. It could
be a humiliating experience. The

command to carry a soldier's pack
for one Roman mile (1,000 paces) was
legally binding. The adage says: go
the one-mile (compulsory) but then
volunteer to go a second mile. Why?
The second mile was an opportunity
to make a friend and disarm your
opponent. It's good, practical advice.
Going the extra mile takes us
beyond the average and as we volun-
teer to help others it propels us to a
new and higher level of living. When
we volunteer in community programs
it can overcome our drudgery. We'll
become self-starters and we will see
our lives change as well as the life of
When we become volunteers in our
communities we'll rise above our limi-
tations. When going the second mile
becomes second nature in us. it will
contribute to our personal growth and
the progress of others.
It is interesting, but volunteerism
tends to overthrow wrongs that' may
have been done to us. It will focus on
and bring out what is true and right
in us (individually). It will help us to
put the past behind. We'll rise above
any past resentment because we're
focusing on the importance of doing
good to benefit others. Volunteerism
has the power of vindication.
Think about it. Our lives are truly
blessed in so many ways. We possess
good health, a steady income, a stan-
dard of living and time to enjoy it. Be
a volunteer and go the second mile!

you are spiritually. A time to nurture yourself and gain a :-,.
vision of where you want to go. It's also a time to under-

Explaining the new
By FLTCM(SW/AW) Jackie DiRosa E
Atlantic Fleet Master Chief TH E
FROM THE 1LEET
L ast week, FLTCM(SS/SW) R.D.
West addressed the recently
announced changes to the Navy's
focus on the deployability and employabil-
ity of our units. I would like to echo his
comments and further explain how these
changes will affect you and
First, it's important to under-
starid the history that led .to
these changes and why these
decisions were made. The
original PERSTEMPO instruc-
tion was written in 1985 with-
in the context of the Cold War
requirements. Prior to the
instruction, nine month at sea
and 'multiple deployments dur- FLTCM(
ing an at-sea tours were com- Jackie
mon. The 1985 PERSTEMPO instruction
set the framework for more than a decade
of steady six-month deployments and a
predictable rotation policy.
During the 1990's, the increased demand
by combatant commanders for Navy capa-
bilities made it more difficult to maintain
predictable deployment cycles.
After Sept. 11, 2001, those demands
increased even more and sticking with a
static six-month deployment model from
20 years ago no longer made sense. As an
example, in 2005 the Navy held to past
policy and ended up executing a 26 percent
increase in presence to meet the needs of
combatant commanders. These. changes
were short notice and created instability in
Now, more than ever, the nation, needs
the capabilities that you have been trained
to carry out and each day we spend train-
ing at sea is important. The training con-
ducted during each of the phases of the
employment cycle allow us to advance into
the next phase and ultimately provide a
combat capable unit ready for future mis-
sions. There may be times when we are
called on to deploy on short notice dur-
ing that window of availability. But that
will only be when combatant commanders
require the unique capabilities that we
bring to a mission, which could include
missions in support of our own citizens, at
You may have heard that the Navy will
do more seven-month deploy-
ments. This is true, but only
when it is necessary for com-
mands with a single deploy-
ment within an employment
cycle. If multiple deployments
are required within an employ-
ment cycle, the maximum
planned length limit will be six
months. In either case, deploy-
ments will not be routinely
W/AW) scheduled for longer than six
)iRosa months. 'I would ask you to
remember that there are other services,
as well as our Sailors'serving individual
augmentee missions, who deploy for a year
at a time.
The potential for increased time at sea
is to be balanced with more time at home."
In a recent message (NavAdmin 051/07),
Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike
Mullen, wrote, "while we increased the
time available for employment in support
of the nation's combatant commanders, I
want our Sailors to understand that we
have carefully considered the potential
for personnel impacts. The new plan will
better account for deployed time and pre-
serves the traditional 50 percent time in
We are a nation at war and this more
flexible schedule and responsive surge
capability is vital to the nation and our
Navy. Shipmates, we live in an unpredict-
able world and your service is valued, as
are the sacrifices of your families while you
are away. Our nation depends upon young
men and women who are willing to volun-
teer to serve their country.
If you have any questions on the Navy's
new operational focus, don't hesitate to
talk to your chiefs, command master chief
or others in your command's leadership.

(HYT) policies enable the career
progression of Sailors. They are
not intended to force deckplate leaders
out of the Navy, but rather to allow the
growth of those we have been developing
as our reliefs," said MCPON(SW/FMF)
Joe Campa, Jr. recently.
The current HYT limiting gates are:
E5 -12 Years
E6 -20 Years
E7 -24 Years
E8 -26 Years
E9 -30 Years
All enlisted HYT requests are reviewed
and endorsed by the rating detailer and
forwarded to ECMs for final approval. The
master chief petty officer of the Navy will
not review any command master chief HYT
requests without fleet or force master chief
input. Command master chiefs requesting
HYT waivers to support transfer to high-
impact/arduous sea tours are looked at
Although the Navy has a 40-year pay
scale, there are no plans to increase the
HYT limiting gates for enlisted personnel.
All master chief petty officer selection
numbers are determined by our current
number of master chief petty officers on
board on June 30. The end strength is
mandated by Congress and the Navy must
be at or below the authorized end strength
on Sept. 30 (end of fiscal year).

familyy Advocacy Program
aelps Navy and Marine Corps
families deal with violence
n a perfect world run solely by love
and happiness, spouses don't fight and
children don't get abused, but, sadly,
thousands of spouses and children are
neglected and abused emotionally, phys-
ically, and sexually. Navy and Marine
Corps families who face abuse or fear its
onset, can work with the Family Advocacy
Program (FAP) for guidance and solu-
FAP was created to protect military
families from violence and abuse, to pro-
vide safety for victims, to hold offenders
accountable for their actions through dis-
ciplinary action, administrative action, or
rehabilitation and to prevent similar situa-
tions from happening in the future.
FAP Helps Families in Need
FAP works as an administrative agency
for spouse abuse and child abuse. FAP also
evaluates all referrals and calls by alleged
victims, 911 operators, the military police,
the hospital and the command. Other on-
base out-of-home settings such as childcare
centers, schools, and recreation programs
must also report alleged child abuse to
FAP. FAP, in turn, is obligated to report
alleged or actual abuse to Child Protective
Additionally, FAP coordinates the Case
Review Committee (CRC), a multi-disci-
plinary team, to -determine the level of
violence, suggest treatment and, above all,
stay in close communication with the com-
The treatments suggested by FAP can
be with civilian agencies, the hospital, or
through classes such as domestic abuse
intervention prevention and seminars that
cover marriage and couples counseling,
parenting skills, stress and anger manage-
ment, resolving conflict, and building self-
esteem. These courses can last one month
to a year and are free of charge.
Ultimately, however, it's the command's
responsibility to ensure that the offend-
er rIeceives the suggested treatment.
Furthermore, it's the command's duty to
see that the victim is protected if physical'
safety is a concern. One way this can be
accomplished is through a military protec-
tion order (MPO), which is similar to a
civilian temporary restraining order. When
a commanding officer issues an MPO, the
service member must live in barracks for
a set period of time. Violation of an MPO
results in disciplinary action designated by
CRC Advises the Command
If FAP identifies a low-level abuse case,
the FAP staff coordinates directly with the
command and offers recommended treat-
ments. Low-level abuse is defined as minor
physical contact and a low level of risk to
the victim, who does not fear or anticipate
future abuse. If the abuse appears to be
severe, FAP will submit the file, including
all evidence collected, to the CRC.
The CRC is a decision-making and
advisory body chaired by the FAP pro-
gram manager and includes representa-
tives from the installation, Staff Judge
Advocate, medical treatment facility,
Provost Marshals Office, Substance Abuse
Counseling Center and the command.
The CRC reviews reported spouse and
child abuse incidents and determines if
the case is substantiated. It also deter-
mines the level of violence and submits
recommendations to the command. The
CRC determines levels of violence'based on
the severity and frequency of physical and
emotional abuse and violence.
Finally, the CRC reviews each case quar-
terly until the case is closed. The CRC.fol-
lows the policies and procedures dictated
by the official CRC Handbook.
Can a Phone Call to FAP
Ruin My Career?
FAP takes all phone calls seriously. If,
after an assessment has been made and
abuse is indicated, a response will be forth-
coming within 48 hours and, if necessary,
all parties involved will be interviewed. All
calls are confidential, and FAP notifies the
command if action is needed.
A service member's career could be in
jeopardy if civil authorities or the CRC
substantiates extremely severe abuse.
The command is mandated to include this
information in the next fitness report.
Such information could hinder promotion.
Severe cases of violence or abuse may also
warrant administrative discharge or a
court martial; however, the command han-
dles each case on an individual basis.
How to Contact FAP
Every Navy and Marine Corps base has
a FAP point of contact, although each base
may offer differing violence and abuse pre-
A victims advocate is on call 24 hours a
day and can provide immediate assistance
if safety is a concern. All calls are screened
and evaluated by counselors who then
assess the seriousness. FAP counselors
hold a master's degree in marriage, family
and child counseling or social work and are
Family violence and sexual assault are
antithetical to the Navy and Marine Corps
mission and core values. In addition to
causing family dysfunction, this type of
behavior diminishes readiness and mili-
tary performance. FAP works hard to sup-
port the Navy and Marine Corps by work-
ing with the commanders to intervene and
even to prevent family violence.

Fire Prevention Division
Spring is here and now it's time to do
away with winter clutter that has accumu-
lated. Spring cleanup help prevent fires
in the home. Remember, cluttered areas
give fires a place'to start!
The following fire safety tips are from
your NAS Jacksonville Fire Prevention
* Dispose of boxes no longer necessary;
they can build up and invite fire into your
* Store paints, fuels and all ignitable
liquids in a cool. locked metal cabinet. Do
not store chemicals that are not compatible
together, such as pool chemicals, oils, gaso-
line and cleaning products. If you're not
sure, call a fire station near your home and
ask their advice.
* Dispose of oily rags and rags used to
wipe up after fueling various mechani-
cal equipment during the winter months.
It doesn't, have to be very warm in your
garage or storage area for rags to heat
up and catch fire. Rags used to apply fur-
niture polish can also be dangerous and
should be replaced.
* Check family storage areas, attics,
basements and closets. Dispose of anything
you don't use or do not needed anymore.
At the very least, straighten things up
while observing good housekeeping prac-
. Do not place any combustible mate-
rial or items within three feet of furnaces,
water heaters or other heat sources.
* Routinely check behind and under-
neath the clothes dryer, vacuum to remove
excess lint and dust buildup.
* Before doing any outdoor burning,
contact your local fire department or the
Florida Forestry Division to obtain guid-
ance or procedures. In your area, burning
outdoors could be prohibited.
Spring cleaning is a great time for you to
help make your home fire safe. Don't give
fire a place to start!

Is your child ready to stay home alone?
By Kelli Kirwan
T Tere's a scary thought -
you shut the front door
H L behind you, get into your
;tar, and actually drive away
knowing your child is alone in
the house, watching TV and eat-
ing everything in sight.
But the thought of a month's
groceries disappearing while
you're gone pales in comparison
to the frightening thoughts that
,begin entering your mind. Each
Slick of the odometer moves you
farther from your blossoming
Preteen, and your mind begins
-to race with every scary scenario
How do you really know youi
child is ready to take this giant
Step toward independence? How
can you prepare them? There is
,no one answer or magic formula,
but there are guidelines you may
want to consider.
'The legal age at which a child
can be left home unattended var-
'ies from state to state, but is usu-
ally 12 or 13. Some states don't
specify an age, but make it ille-
gal for an adult to leave anyone
:under 18 alone if it endangers the
,child's health or welfare. Begin
:with a call to your local child pro-
tective services when determining
if your child is old enough.
Every. military installation
has definite rules about chil-
dren being left alone in quarters,
how long they can be left alone,
and at what age. (The starting
age is usually 12, but can vary.)
Regardless of the law, if you live
in quarters you are subject to
base regulations .as well. Your
housing handbook should have
a section outlining the rules on
children left at home as well as
being unaccompanied at other
base facilities, and the Provost
Marshals office will be happy to
give you guidance on this issue.
Although 12 seems to be the
age at which children can be left
alone, age is not the only factor -
you must consider the individual
maturity of your son or daughter.
Think back over their history of
decision making - do they tend
to make good, sound decisions
based on their age and experi-
ence? Have you taught them not
to panic, but to think quickly
and clearly in unexpected situa-
tions? Have you practiced fire or
earthquake drills? Does the child
play with matches or lighters? Is
there a gun in the house, and is it
locked up? Where's the key? What
about the liquor cabinet? Does
your child understand the haz-
ards of electrical appliances such
as the stove, toaster, microwave,
and hair dryer?
Past' behavior is a good indi-
cator of what will happen when
you're not around, but at some
point you have to give them the
chance to prove themselves.
Small steps may be the best way
to introduce them to the responsi-
bility of staying home alone.
Does Your Child Want to
Stay IHome Alone?
Regardless of age, some chil-
dren don't want to stay home
alone. They may be uncomfort-
able because a parent is deployed,
or nervous because of heightened
alert status or recent events. Or
they may just be lonely. Talk with
your child and see how he or she
A note of caution: If your soni or
daughter isn't ready to be home
alone, for whatever reason, don't
force them into a potentially
frightening or harmful situation.
Your children's best advocate is
you, their parent, and you are
also the most familiar with your
child's ability. Given time, they
will be ready to try again, and
with more success.
Even very young children
should be taught the basic emer-
gency numbers, but a refresher
course is probably in order for
your preteen. Post a list of work
numbers, reliable neighbors, fam-
ily, and of course 911. You also
need to teach them the correct
order of actions to take. For exam-
ple, if there's a fire, they should
get out of the house first and then
call 911 from a cell phone or a
neighbor's house. After that, they
should call the parents emergency
Begin teaching children long
before the age of 12 not to open
the door to strangers (or even
to talk to them through a closed
door) and never to tell a caller
that they're home alone. Now is
a great time to talk with them
about keeping themselves safe,
not just from crime, but from
household accidents as well.
Basic First Aid
Band-Aids, triple antibiotic oint-
ment and CPR are tools every-
one should have, and our children
are no different. Boy Scouts, Girl,
Scouts, and the Red Cross offer
first aid and CPR lessons. If no
programs are readily available,
look around your neighborhood -/
there is usually a Navy corpsman
or two who would be happy to
cover some basics with your kids.
(Alternative means of teaching
often stick with a kid who seems
to start tuning mom and dad out
around age 12.)
Care of Younger Siblings
All too often, an oldest child gets
put into role of caregiver before
he or she is ready. In addition to
verifying the legal age at which a
child can be left to baby sit, make
sure your child is ready to care for
herself as well as other children.
Introduce kids to baby sitting by
having them start in your home,
so you'll be nearby if they need
you. A little sitter training may go
a long way toward helping your
son or daughter be a responsible
baby sitter - and who knows?
You may be borrowing money for
the movies from them.
Learning to stay home alone
is a normal step in growing up.
Under a family's watchful eye and
guidance, this new responsibility
can be learned one step at a time.
As a parent, it's your job to love,
teach, and prepare your children
to live in this world successfully.
Not an easy task, but one that
will be the greatest accomplish-
ment of your life.

Carrier Tactical Support Center, and
each of the eight East Coast Navy
squadrons which have flown the
Viking since its inception.
The solid granite monument weighs
more than 1,200 pounds and was
presented to the Sea Control Wing
and NAS Jacksonville by Lockheed
Martin, in honor of the S-3 commu-
nity's many decades of service to the
Navy and the nation.
The monument is located on a con-
crete base in front of the Viking static
display in Heritage Park.
Capt. Joe McClain, commander,
Sea Control Wing Atlantic, hosted the
unveiling and dedication, directly pre-
ceding a disestablishment ceremony
of the VS-24 "Scouts."
He thanked representatives of
Lockheed Martin for providing the
monument and noted that their sup-
port had been invaluable to the S-3
community's ability to adapt to the
varying missions that the S-3 has
assumed over the years.
Rick Kirkland, vice president of
Lockheed Martin's Surveillance
Enterprise, spoke for Lockheed
Martin and pointed out that, "The
S-3 Viking's ability to adapt its mis-
sion over its many years of service
has cemented its legacy as the Swiss
Army knife of naval aviation and one
of the most successful designs in car-
rier aircraft history."
As the senior attending S-3 avia-
tor, Rear Adm. Michael Miller, U.S.
Fleet Forces Command deputy chief
of staff, Global Force Management
.and Joint Operations, was invited to'
address the attendees and said, "It
is only fitting that the S-3 commu-
nity be commemorated in granite, a
stone which stands the test of time
as the S-3 Viking has stood the test
He added that the adaptability of
the venerable Viking led the way for

Lockheed Aerospace designed and
built the S-3A Viking as a carrier-
based antisubmarine warfare (ASW)
platform in the early 1970's to replace
the Grumman S-2 Tracker.
Lockheed converted existing Vikings
to the S-3B configuration in the early
1990's, and joining with Martin
Marietta in 1995, continued to service
and upgrade the Viking airframe for
more than 30 years.
Although conceived primarily for
ASW, the Viking has proven itself so
versatile that its mission for the last
15 years has been called simply, "Sea
After the retirement of the A-
6 Intruder and A-7 Corsair II, the
Viking was the only airborne refuel-
ing platform organic to the carrier air
wing until the fielding of the F/A-18E/
F Super Hornet.
The Viking also provides electron-
ic warfare, surface, surveillance, and
over-the-horizon strike capabilities to
the carrier battle group.
Although in its Sundown phase,
with the last squadron set to dises-
tablish in early 2009, the venerable
Viking continues to adapt its mission

Web system tracks PT to create culture of fitness
By Ingrid Mueller
Navy MWR Public Affairs
The key to the Navy's
physical readiness pro-
gram is recognizing that
"total fitness" is a crucial ele-
ment of mission performance.
Recent upgrades to
the Physical Readiness
System (PRIMS), including
enhanced "read only" access
and reporting procedures, help
Navy commands get a true pic-
ture of their Sailors' overall fit-
ness, while significantly reduc-
ing the administrative work-
load required to administer the
physical readiness program.
"The refinements we are
making to PRIMS support
the Navy's goal of developing
a culture of fitness," said Lt.
Cmdr. Mike Criqui, physical
readiness program manager,
Navy Morale, Welfare and
Recreation (MWR) Division,
Navy Personnel Command,
executive officers and com-
mand master chiefs can now
be assigned read-only access
to all the physical readiness
program records within their
command, which will enable
them to get a better look at
the overall fitness of their
Sailors." Read-only access is
available through the com-
mand fitness leader (CFL).
All commands are re-
quired to report their physi-
cal fitness assessment (PFA)
data via PRIMS no later
than 30 days after conduct-
ing the PFA, in accordance
with guidelines established
in the Navy's Physical
Readiness Prograif instruc-
tion, OPNAVINST 6110.1G.
When using the Web-based
PRIMS, there is no need
to provide any additional
reports to Navy Personnel
Command on command par-
ticipation in PFAs.
"The purpose of PRIMS is
to make the whole adminis-
tration of the physical readi-
ness program easier for the
command and for the indi-
vidual," explained Criqui.
"PRIMS came on line Oct. 1,
2002, and has significantly
reduced the command level.
required to administer the
physical readiness program.
We estimate that PRIMS has
reduced record management
time by about 30 percent."
CFLs can use PRIMS to
update individual records,
receive and transfer mem-
bers' records, and create
specialized reports for their
command. Other features of
the system include risk con-
trols, PFA tracking, admin-
istrative warnings and fit-
ness enhancement program
(FEP) enrollment. Using
PRIMS -means no more

can help couples
have solid relationships
By Brandi Givens
S he has the jitters.
He has cold feet.
They're taking the plunge.
These sayings poke fun at the way peo-
ple sometimes feel before their wedding
day, but some engaged couples may seri-
ously worry that their feelings are more
than just a case of the butterflies. Though
choosing whether to marry is ultimately a
very private decision, there are people who
can help guide you as you make your way
down the aisle.
Statistics show that marriage is much
more successful and enjoyable when cou-
ples go through counseling prior to say-
ing, "I do." Many Navy chaplains have
organized pre-marriage seminars that
teach skills to help couples prepare for a
lifetime together. Lt. Cmdr. Kim House,
chaplain at Naval Hospital Bremerton,
Wash., and Lt. Steve Barstow, chaplain
with Chaplains Religious Enrichment
Development Operation (CREDO) Pacific
Northwest, have combined efforts to create
such a program in their area.
House points out that perhaps the most
important skill learned in their seminar
is how to communicate during conflict.
"We teach the speaker-listener technique.
Listen to what your partner has to say
without interjecting. Then, using your own
words, repeat the point your partner has
just made." This technique shows respect
for your partner and minimizes misunder-
House also advises that couples should
find common interests. "You'd be surprised
how many couples come to our seminar
and can't think of one thing that they enjoy
doing together. Commit to leisure time
together and find common interests. You
have to be best friends."
To find out about pre-marriage semi-
nars available in your area, including

Questions to Ask Before the Big Day
In their seminar, House and Barstow
teach that there are several important
issues couples should discuss openly, well
before their wedding day.
* Motivations for marriage: Are our
motivations negative (infatuation instead
of love, for financial reasons, etc.) or posi-
tive (equal expectations, commitment to
* Know your partner: How are we simi-
lar and different? Do these similarities and
differences complement our marriage?
* Infidelity: How can we prevent infidel-
ity and build a lasting, committed relation-
* Need fulfillment: Have we communi-
cated our emotional, physical, spiritual,
social, and intellectual needs?
* Roles: How do we feel about our roles
regarding housework, shopping, yard work,
etiquette, income earning, etc.?
* Children: Do we want children? How
many? When? Will one parent stay home
with the children? Do we have a financial
* In-laws: How well do we relate to our
in-laws? What expectations do our fami-
lies place on us? What do we do with a
demanding family member?
* Independence: Is it okay to have nights
out without each other? Is it okay to have
close friends of the opposite gender? Where
should we draw the line?
* Finances: Who will handle the financ-
es? Does the non-military partner know
how to read a leave and earnings state-
ment (LES)? How will finances be handled
when the military partner is deployed?
* Military life: How can we prepare our
marriage for military separations? Does
the non-military spouse know about sup-

municating and keep enhancing your rela-
By taking the time to learn necessary
tools for building a healthy relationship,

A SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE
Traveling With TRICARE
By Beth Wiruth
M any of you may remember that
I am on the road. We are in
the midst of a PCS move with
a five and a half-month school along
the way. Scott and I have been living
out of suitcase since October 2006. This
extended time on the road prompted
this week's column. Medical care on the
road is available but can be frustrating
if you don't have a few basic facts.
TRICARE is the military's heath sys-
tem for family members. TRICARE is
divided into four geographical regions,
TRICARE North, TRICARE South,
TRICARE West and TRICARE Overseas.
Each region contracts with private pro-
viders. For instance, TRICARE North's
contract provider is Healthnet Federal
Services and TRICARE West's provid-
er is TriWest Healthcare Alliance. This
information is important to know as you
travel. If you -are not near a Military
Treatment Facility (MTF) you will need
to contact the local region's TRICARE
provider for authorization for service and
location of treatment facilities.
Many of us never use our TRICARE
card. We present our dependent ID at our
local MTF or clinic. That card serves to
take the place of our TRICARE card and
other insurance processes shared by our
civilian counterparts. When traveling you
will need that card for both the informa-
tion it provides and to access services.
Before we talk about the steps to access
care on the road it is important to know
that a medical emergency takes priority.
If you have a medical emergency while
traveling seek medical attention imme-
diately from the nearest medical facility
(whether military or civilian). Once the
emergency is stabilized you have time to
contact your TRICARE Service Center to
make them aware of the situation. They
will give you information to proceed.
Non-emergency care can be obtained at
the nearest MTF or TRICARE provider.
If an MTF is available you can simply
call the facility's family practice appoint-
ment line and make an appointment
or, if warranted, proceed to emergency
care. I experienced a problem getting an
appointment but after a little digging'
discovered the young lady answering the
phone was new and didn't know what to
do with me. You can be treated at any
MTF - Army, Air Force, Navy, etc.
If you do not have access to a MTF
obtaining non-emergency care requires a
bit of coordination with TRICARE. It is
recommended that as part of your trav-
el preparations you visit the TRICARE
website and obtain the toll free numbers
of the TRICARE regions you will be trav-
eling to and through (yup, things happen
on the road). May I recommend that you
put the toll free numbers on the back of
your TRICARE card then you will always
have them when needed?
Call the appropriate region's toll free
number (the one where you are visiting).
The representative will guide you to the
nearest TRICARE affiliated provider as
well as give you an authorization num-
ber. The provider will need this number
to bill TRICARE for your care. The rep-
resentative will provide you with the
local address and contact number of the
provider as well as any other information
needed for that particular provider.
Just to note, if you are out of your
home TRICARE region it will not be ben-
eficial to call your region for authoriza-
tion or providers. The various regions do
not share database information. Stop by
your local TRICARE Service Center and
pick up their color brochure entitled, "On
the Road with TRICARE" for more infor-
mation and all regional numbers.
The last 'Traveling with TRICARE'
tip is in regard to pharmacy services.
Perhaps you have a prescription to fill
after being seen by a physician or need
to have a refill of an existing prescrip-
tion. You can contact the local TRICARE
region for a referral to a local TRICARE
participating pharmacy. By the way,
most CVS Pharmacies and Walgreen's
are TRICARE participating pharmacies.
Of course if you are near an MTF, their
pharmacy can fill your prescription.
I hope your travels are never marked by
the need for medical services on the road,
but it is best to be prepared with your
TRICARE card, numbers and knowledge.

topic you would like Beth to cover? Contact
her at email@example.com.
By Lissa Wohltmann
Once upon a time, children literal-
ly ran around and played outside.
They had to be coaxed inside, away
from all the physical frolicking, to eat
their daily home-cooked, healthful dinner.
The behavior of today's children is quite the
opposite, resulting in obesity and/poor health.
In fact, obesity has more than doubled
in 20 years for 6- to 11-year-olds and more
than tripled in the 12- to 19-year-old cat-
egory. About 15.5 percent of children ages
12 to 19 and 15.3 percent of children ages 6
to 11 are obese.
The obesity statistics in England is even
more harrowing; it has grown almost 400
percent in 25 years. Three-quarters of the
adult population is now overweight, 22 per-
cent of the population is obese and the child-
hood obesity.has tripled in the past 20 years.
Other countries such as Japan, China, India
and Australia are also following in our fatal
footsteps in their growing obesity problem.
Obese children pose a unique problem to
society. They are part of "a generation that
may not live as long as their parents," said
Diane Sarantakos, director of the American
Diabetes Association in Oklahoma City.
Kids' obesity is directly linked to being
diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes was once called "adult
onset diabetes" yet now children as young
as 4-years of age are being diagnosed with
this potentially fatal disease.
Clinically-based reports and regional
studies suggest that type 2 diabetes is
being diagnosed more frequently in chil-
dren and adolescents, yet the nationally
representative data that would be needed
to monitor diabetes trends in youth by type
are not available.
Left untreated, type 2 diabetes increases
your risk for serious complications such as
heart disease, blindness, nerve damage,
and kidney damage.
If the decline rate of health continues as
it is, by the year 2050, one in three people
born in the 21st century will have type 2
diabetes, Sarantakos said.
There are a lot of factors contributing to
such an increase rate of declining health.
"The most identifiable is the lack of exer-
cise," Sarantakos explained. "Some of the
schools are eliminating recess in their
schedules. That's insane. We're causing
our children to become obese."
Also people are not burning off the excess
calories they are eating. It's easier and
cheaper to eat the fast, fat-laden, non-
nutritious foods, then to carefully select
and consume wholesome food.
People want instant gratification,
Parents, specifically, are in such a hurry
to take their kids to soccer practice, dance
practice or a school activity, they forget
that good nutrition is just as important as
The quick answer to this "big" problem
is fairly straight-forward but tough to fol-
low without discipline."Diet and exercise,"

be resolved at the command level," said
As part of the checks and balances built
into the system, CFLs can only make
changes to the records of members assigned
to their command. In addition, after six
months of PFA completion, record chang-
es can only be made by Navy Personnel
Command, which requires a letter from
the individual's commanding officer grant-
ing authorization to make the changes.
"A gaining command cannot edit a record
that was input by a previous command,
even if it was within six months. You can
only edit records from your own UIC (unit
-identification code)," said Criqui. "So, if a
record from a previous command needs to
be edited, we need to get a letter from that
previous commanding officer to make the
change. That's another reason why - espe-
cially on a transfer - Sailors should check
their records on PRIMS."

From the Florida Automotive
ising fuel costs are onr the
minds of most Americans
these days as gas prices are
expected to top $3 per gallon in com-
ing weeks. Sure, you can simply stop
driving as much, but for many con-
sumers, that's not an option. But
there are two ways all of us can
stretch our precious gasoline dollars.
One strategy is to change how we
drive, and the other is to perform sim-
ple and inexpensive vehicle mainte-
nance. Taking these steps will not
only save gas money, but will improve
a vehicle's safety and dependability.
National Car Care Month in April
is an ideal time for motorists to
review the factors that can impact
fuel economy. According to the Car
Care Council, the most common are
under-inflated tires, dirty air filters,
old spark plugs and something as
simple as the gas cap.
* Check your vehicle gas cap. About
17 percent of the vehicles on the roads
have gas caps that are either dam-
aged, loose or are missing altogether,
causing 147 million gallons of gas to
* Aggressive driving can lower gas
mileage by as much as 22 percent on
the highway and five percent on city
streets, which results in seven to 49
cents per gallon.
* Sitting idle gets zero miles per
gallon. Letting the vehicle warm up
for one to two minutes is sufficient.
* Gas mileage decreases rapidly at
speeds above 60 mph. Each mph driv-
en over 60 results in an additional
10 cents per gallon. To maintain a
constant speed on the highway, cruise
control is recommended.
Last year, vehicle check-up events
conducted throughout the country
revealed that nearly nine out of 10
cars required some type of mainte-
nance. This reinforces the need for
the motoring public to become more
aware of the maintenance needs of
their vehicle to save money, conserve
energy, improve highway safety and
help protect the environment.
Every motorist can receive a free
56-page Car Care Guide that takes
the guesswork out of vehicle main-
tenance by visiting the Car Care
Council's Web site at www.carcare;.

* A vehicle can have either four,
six or eight spark plugs, which fire
as many as three million times each
1,000 miles, resulting in a lot of heat,
electrical and chemical erosion. A
dirty spark plug causes misfiring,
which wastes fuel. Spark plugs need
to be replaced regularly.
* An air filter that is clogged with
dirt, dust and bugs chokes off the air
and creates a "rich" mixture - too
much gas being burned for the amount
of air, which wastes gas and causes
the engine to lose power. Replacing
a clogged air filter can improve gas
mileage by as much as 10 percent,
saving about 15 cents on a gallon.
