10 miles west of Austin,
The helicopter was con-
ducting a routine training
mission from NAS Fallon,
Nev. as part of deployment
preparation for their next
cruise on board the USS
Harry S. Truman (CVN 75)
Military aircraft initially
located the crash site at 9:40

copter dispatched from NAS
Fallon, arrived at the scene
at approximately 10:15 p.m.

William Weatherford, 30, of
Wichita, Kan., AW2 Andrew
Bibbo, 22, of Clinton, Mass.
And AW2 Jared Rossetto,
24, of Corralitos, Calif.
Sheahan, the squadron's
commanding officer took
over command in 2006 after
a tour at the Joint Chiefs
of Staff in- Washington,
D.C. where he served as
the Joint Naval Operations
operational officer for the
Plans and Joint Force
(J7). He had accumulat-
ed more than 2,800 flight
hours in the SH-3H and H-
60B/F/H helicopters during
his 17-year naval career.
HS-7 was originally
established in April 1956
at NAS Norfolk, Va. for the
mission of harbor defense.
After several changes in
homeports, it arrived at
NAS Jacksonville in 1973
after transitioning to the
SH-3H Sea King helicopter.
Originally nicknamed, "The
Shamrocks", HS-7 changed
its name to the "Dusty
Dogs" in 2004. The squad-
ron, which now flies the SH-
60F and HH-60H helicop-
ters, returned from its most
recent deployment on board
USS Harry S. Truman
(CVN 75) in April 2005. The
squadron supported the
Hurricane Katrina relief
efforts in August 2005 and
joined Carrier Air Wing
Seventeen on board USS
George Washington (CVN
73) in April 2006 for the
Partnership of the Americas
deployment, which im-
proved maritime security
and fostered relations with
nations in the Caribbean
and South America.
NAS Fallon serves as the
Navy's premier tactical air
warfare training center. It
is the only facility in exis-
tence where an entire car-
rier air wing can conduct
while integrating every ele-
ment of the wing into real-
istic battle scenarios.
A memorial service for
the crew is scheduled, for
May 31 at Hangar 116.

Looking back in time...
. ON THE HOMEFRONT
List for getting along
causes major argument
:By Sarah Smiley
S oon after Dustin and I married,
we ran into a little snafu. First,
I erupted in tears whenever
:Dustin failed to notice my home deco-
rating or how clean I kept the bath
Dustin was angry that I didn't
,appreciate our tidy finances or the
:fact that he was working so hard in
;flight school. Apparently we were sen-
sitive about the other not recogniz-
ing-or, worse, criticizing-our finer
;traits and talents. I called Dustin
:"cheap." He thought I was neurotic.
:Something had to be done.
: So I decided each of us would make
!a list of things that are critical to our
'self-worth, areas of talents or person-
:ality where one should tread lightly
:if they intend to criticize. It would be
the official rules for "fighting fair."
F1nv instance, I take no pride in my
cooking. It is fair game for Dustin's
W'irestrained criticism. But when it
domes to my writing, my parenting
skills and my housekeeping, Dustin
,sould choose his words carefully and
tdote when possible.
:!I knew Dustin's repertoire of jokes
and his do-it-yourself home repairs
would be on his list. But perhaps I
hadn't made myself abundantly clear.
Tou see, the spirit of this exercise
was for us to choose only a handful of
things. On the night we revealed our
Uts. I handed Dustin a short piece of
.What Dustin whipped out of his
pocket looked like one of those accor-
dion-style plastic wallets that hold a
hundred pictures. I scanned his list.
"You think you're a good singer?" I
asked. "You can't be serious! And I
can't make fun of the way you talk?
This just won't do! You need to short-
en the list."
One by one, I crossed items off
Dustin's list. "You've left nothing for
me to be mad at," I said. And then
I blamed his mother for letting him
believe he is the best at everything.
The activity ended in a fight, though
we eventually got Dustin's list down
to a manageable size. One of the
items that remained was "do-it-your-
self home repairs."
Fast forward to last month. Dustin
was working on a stone pathway in
our backyard. He spent three con-
secutive weekends on the project. Yet
when I finally did a test-walk while
he was at work, it was like teetering
on the rocky shores of the Pacific. I
had to put out both arms for balance.
Even our son said, "Someone's going
to break a leg on this."
But how could I tell Dustin? He had
worked so hard. And he was so proud!
Plus, home repairs was on his list. For
several days I considered ways to give
him a hint. I faked a fall on the path
while he was watching, but he just
called out, "you OK?"
I tried saying, "It looks kind of, um,
rocky, doesn't it? Rocky is a beautiful,
but..." The message wasn't getting
through. I resigned myself to accept-
ing the treacherous path and walking
on the grass if I was wearing anything
else except hiking boots.
Then one night, I asked Dustin to
read my column for the next week.
I was in our bedroom with the lap-
top and he was in our office with the
desktop. I sent him an instant mes-
sage (how high-tech couples communi-
cate under the same roof these days)
that read, "I'm forwarding my column
to you. Tell me your thoughts."
A few minutes later Dustin replied:
"The column is really bad. I don't like
it at all. You should use something
Here I had been protecting his feel-
ings-his manhood-for several weeks
while twisting my ankle this way and
that walking on the stone path and he
just threw a dagger at my heart like
I sent him another message. "Yeah,
well, the path you made looks like
[words my editors won't let me use]!"
The next weekend, Dustin relayed
this story to a friend, only he
described my "vicious" attack over
instant message as "out of the blue"
and "without provocation."
What can I say? My husband isn't
the most observant or insightful per-
son around. Although, come to think
of it, I think those are on his list.
Sarah Smiley can be reached for
comments at www.sarahsmiley.com.
I attended an Indoc last
week and the man from
Navy Relief told us we
should not have any debt.
Well that may be fine for
him, but I have to have
debt because I don't make
enough money. Someone
else told me there is "good
debt" and "bad debt."
What's that all about?
Most of the time, debt is
bad. However, if something
increases in value over
time, this debt may be ok.
For example, if you buy a
$150,000 house that grows
at eight percent per year,
you could make money
because (1) your mortgage
payment may be less than
the eight percent you are
earning and (2) you will be
able to deduct much of the
payment from your feder-
al taxes. This could be a
On the other hand, if you
go into debt to buy some-
thing that decreases in
value, that is not good. Try
to borrow money only for
items that will increase in
value or improve your cash
flow in the near future.
Everything else is a los-
ing proposition. If you can
not afford to pay cash for an
item that you feel you must
have (like a car, for exam-
ple) pay very close attention
to the interest rate. The
lower the rate the better.
Keep in mind that the total,
final cost is what counts.
If you can wait to pur-
chase the item with cash,
that is even better! A good
site to learn about money
matters is www.bankrate.

Multi-Cultural Committee holds
Asian Pacific American luncheon
By MC1(SW/AW) Heather Ewton
Assistant Editor AB
The annual NAS Jacksonville Asian Pacific Heritage
Luncheon was held at the NAS Jacksonville
Officers' Club May 10.
The colorful event was sponsored by the base Multi-
Cultural Awareness Committee.
After a beautiful performance of the national anthem by
William Saunders, NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer
Capt. Chip Dobson opened the ceremony by welcoming
and thanking all who attended. He moved on to note the
impact of Asian Pacific Americans contributions to our
"Asian Pacific Americans represent many nations and
ethnicities, each with its own culture, heritage, language
and experience. Across our country, this diverse group of
people has excelled in all walks of life," he said. "Their
talents and hard work have added to the success and pros-
perity of our nation and helped make America a leader in
Asian Pacific American Heritage is celebrated during
the month of May because it marks significant achieve-
ments in the cross-cultural unification of our society. It
was May 7, 1843 when the first Japanese immigrants
arrived in the United States. On May 10, 1869, the east
finally met the west as thousands of Chinese-Americans
completed the transcontinental railroad that connected
the eastern and western coasts.
"America is especially grateful to the many Asian/Pacific
Americans who have courageously answered the call
to defend freedom as members of our Armed Forces,"
added Dobson. "Today, more than 30,000 Asian Pacific
Americans proudly serve as Sailors and civilians in the
Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina then presented a power-
ful invocation. "May we celebrate the heritage of count-
less intrepid men and women who pioneered a path of
accomplishment, at times characterized by sacrifice and
struggle. They have left us a legacy of renewal and hope,"
he said. "May we never forget the men and women who
are standing the watch in harms way. These are Soldiers,
Airmen, Sailors and Marines of all ethnicities who today
ensure our security and well-being."
The guest speaker then took the stage. Bayani Diokno,
a Philippines native, came to America in 1963. He proudly
served his new nation in the Navy for 27 years. He retired
in 1990 and is currently working as a fuel/environmen-
tal specialist for NAS Jacksonville Fleet Management
A real opportunity to
make a real difference
From Commander, Navy Region Southeast
This is part three of an internal information cam-
paign to inform the Southeast Region of Lean Six
Sigma (LSS). Commander, Navy Region Southeast
(CNRSE) Rear Adm. Mark Boensel shares his person-
al thoughts and opinions on how the region can work
together to enable Lean Six Sigma.
What can every CNRSE employee do to ensure the
success of LSS?
Boensel: LSS is an opportunity to make a difference
all across Navy Region Southeast. Employees should
make the effort to understand LSS conceptually. It is also
important to remain open to new ideas and go through the
process in good faith. My message: keep an open mind
and embrace it.
LSS gives everyone in the organization the opportunity
to contribute in a big way. We need that! We have all
thought, "I wish I had the opportunity to tell someone, I
know a better way to do it!" Here is just that opportunity!
Leadership is looking for those ideas, your ideas! Feel
free to give them to us. We will put them through the
rigors of the process and I'm sure we'll find a lot of them
are exactly on target. But even if we find that they aren't,
that's ok too, because we had the opportunity to explore
that avenue and determine its value.
What gets you the most excited about LSS?
Boensel: I think the most exciting thing operates on a
couple of different levels. First, for mission accomplish-
ment on the organizational level, it is tremendously excit-
ing to have the opportunity to make quantum leaps in how
we do business. Secondly, it is an opportunity for each
individual to get involved in.making an institutional level
of change. From the individual perspective, it's an open
invitation to really get involved in the way we do business
and make changes in the way we do business. In any case,
if I had to sum up LSS in one word it would be opportuni-
ty. There's a tremendous opportunity to make significant
organizational changes through individual contribution.
In summation, keep an open mind. In addition to keep-
ing an open mind, go beyond embracing LSS to lean for-
ward and push the process along. Be aggressive about
implementing LSS. Become a part of it. Defeat the temp-
tation to just sit back and just watch. You could miss a
really enjoyable experience, because we're looking for peo-
ple to step out. Take some risk, be forward thinking, be
forward leaning. In my mind there are no penalty points
for being forward leaning, if we don't get it right the first
time, we'll tweak it and we'll press on. We'll keep pressing
on until we get it!

Guest speaker Bayani Diokno addresses the luncheon guests
while highlighting the contributions that Asian-Pacific
Americans have made to America.
"We are a compassionate and religious group of peo-
ple. I ask that you continue strengthening yourselves.
Especially our young, so that we may be rewarded by con-
tinually being called good Americans," said Diokno.
Traditional Asian Pacific entertainment followed lunch.
Guests were treated to a buffet of Asian Pacific cuisine
and then Melina Williams, the founder of Hoku Loa
Polynesian Dancers, performed three traditional dances.
She captivated the audience with her technique and color-

and honored to be placed in
that position of stewardship,"
said Khan. "It's an honor
and a tremendous feeling."
As a child in Pakistan,
Khan grew up around avia-
tion. His father served in
the Pakistani air force for
21 years and then flew com-
mercial airplanes after that
for 24 years.
"As far back as I can
remember, I've always
wanted to be a pilot," lie
said. "There is a Naval
Aviation Museum poster
with a little boy holding a
toy airplane and looking up
at the sky. That little boy
Some 40 years later, Khan
does not just have ambi-
tions to be a jet pilot; he is
one. Not only does Khan fly
jet airplanes almost daily
near his native Pakistan,
but also now commands an
aviation squadron responsi-
ble for six aircraft and over
Khan came to the United
States from Pakistan in
1981 to live with his aunt
in Texas. His goal was to

a degree from North Texas
Although Khan said life
was good in Pakistan, he
made the decision to stay
in the United States for col-
lege and eventually become
an American citizen, a deci-
sion he does not regret. "I
am 100 percent American,"
said Kahn. "I bleed red,
white and blue."
His decision to become a
naval aviator, however, did
not please everyone in his
family at first, he said. "My
father initially was opposed
to the idea of me joining the
U.S. Navy because I am the
oldest son," said Kahn. "My
father wanted me to return
home and follow in his foot-
steps and fly with the air-
lines for him. So, when I told
him I was joining the Navy,
he wasn't initially happy."
Since then, he and his
father have grown very
close, sharing the com-
mon bond and passion for
aviation. Khan's younger
brother even followed his
example joining the Navy
as a P-3 pilot, and is cur-
rently stationed in Whidbey
In 2004, Khan was select-
ed to enter the command-
at-sea pipeline and became
VS 31's executive officer
shortly thereafter. Khan
was competing for one of
two spots against 32 candi-
dates, he said.
"The fact that I was
selected for command after
Sept. 11 is a good indication
that the Navy is an equal
and that we don't discrimi-
nate on race, religion or
color," said Khan.
While many Americans
may not have known much
about Islam prior to Sept.
11, the terrorist attacks

Melott, a native of La Mesa, Calif.,
graduated from Edison High School in
1987. He joined the Navy in August
1987, attending basic training at
Recruit Training Center, San Diego.
After graduating in October 1987,
Melott attended Damage Controlman
"A" School at Treasure Island, Calif.
His first tour of duty was on board
USS Okinawa (LPH 3) in San Diego
where he achieved the rank of sec-
ond class petty officer and earned his
enlisted surface warfare specialist
His next assignment was as an
instructor at the Fire Fighting School,
Fleet Training Center, San Diego. He
was soon promoted to petty officer
first class and qualified as field safety
chief. In the summer of 1994, Melott
was anxious to get back to sea, so he
cut his shore tour short and received
orders to the Pre-commissioning
Unit Russell (DDG 59) stationed at
Pascagoula Miss. In May 1995, USS
Russell was commissioned and the
ship headed to its new homeport in
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
While on board USS Russell, Melott
conducted two Western Pacific deploy-
ments and was promoted to chief
petty officer. In 1999, he received
orders to Afloat Training Group in
Pearl Harbor. While there, he earned
his master training specialist and
afloat training specialist rating.
His next tour was on board USS
John F. Kennedy (CV 67) in Mayport.
While assigned to the JFK, he earned
his enlisted aviation warfare special-
ist pin. "This was the most demand-
ing and challenging job I've ever had
in the Navy due to the large infra-
structure and physically demanding
aspects of a 24-hour-a-day operation
aboard a Navy carrier," said Melott.

the Navy is being at sea. Lots of peo-
ple did not like it, but I simply loved
it. When I was at sea, I felt like I was
invincible. There is no other way to

orable experiences after 20 years of

SFUN FOR ALL
By MC2(SW/AW) Rebecca Kruck
Rain didn't deter Sailors from coming out to par-
ticipate in the annual Barracks Bash May 9. This
year's bash, which was sports-themed, was orga-
nized by the NAS Jax Morale, Welfare and Recreation
(MWR) Department's Liberty program. The event includ-
ed several sports challenges, a dunk tank and a visit by a
few Jacksonville Jaguars alumni.
"The purpose of the Barracks Bash is to provide an alco-
hol-free special event that is targeted to the junior enlisted
single Sailors," said Danny Calhan, liberty coordinator for
MWR. "There is no other event of this size that is specifi-
cally for them. Not only are we providing an event for the
junior enlisted single Sailors, but we are bringing it to
where they live."
When Sailors first arrived they were directed to a give-
away table where they received free Barracks Bash 2007
T-shirts, giveaway bags and a ticket for prize drawings.
"When the Sailors get their tickets they must visit each of
the sports stations and get it punched off," said Darlene
Biclarski, who works with the MWR Liberty program.
"Once they're done they turn the ticket in and we do a
prize drawing every half hour."
The prizes included sports T-shirts and jerseys, com-
missary gift cards and an autographed Jacksonville Sun's
baseball and Orlando Magic basketball.
Many Sailors headed to the food line after receiving
their giveaways. The food, which was prepared by The
Zone, included bratwurst, pulled pork and nacho chips
with cheese. Drinks were also provided by the NAS Jax
Commissary and CocaCola.
Some of the sports stations included a gladiator-style
jousting competition, a horizontal bungee jump and a
3-in-1 station that included a football throw, basketball
toss and soccer kick. The most popular station seemed
to be the dunk tank, which was manned by several kha-
kis, including NAS Jacksonville Executive Officer (XO)
Capt. Chuck Tamblyn and Command Master Chief
CMDCM(SW) Chris Green.
"I love the dunk tank, but I thought more people
should've been in uniform aside from the XO and I," said
Green, who along with Tamblyn didn't even bother to take
their shoes off before entering the tank.
Green continued on his thoughts of the Barracks Bash.
"It's a great event. It draws Sailors out of their rooms and
exposes them to what Liberty can do for them," he said.
"It's not only free and gets them away from their usual
routine, but it coincides with the Right Spirit Campaign."
One of the Sailors who participated in the Barracks Bash
was AN Lashea Harrison, who works on the quarterdeck
in Building 1 and lives in the barracks. "I had a lot of fun. I
think it was my favorite MWR event so far," she said. "It's
a good way to get out and meet the people you live around.
I've met a lot of my friends at events like this."
Green praised the MWR Liberty program coordinators
saying, "They operate on a pretty tight budget and the
fact that they can do events like that, on such a big scale
Calhan described planning process that goes into the
Barracks Bash. "We start in January, deciding on a theme
and a menu. This year we chose a sports theme, which is
why we incorporated the Jacksonville Jaguars and sev-
eral sports related games," he said. "From there, Darlene
(Biclarski) and I brainstorm on what type of activities we
think would be fun for the Sailors. After the planning
stage we order the shirts, marketing material and enter-
tainment. Once we have everything ordered, we work
with our marketing and sponsorship coordinator to find
sponsors that will give us prizes for the event."

This detachment was the last
time an S-3 squadron will train

Nestled in the high desert of the
Sierra Nevada mountains, NAS
Fallon provides invaluable strike
warfare training to air wings and
thousands of aircrew every year.
The rugged desert terrain helps
prepare squadrons for combat
operations in forward deployed
areas such as the Persian Gulf
"Fallon gives us an unbeliev-
able and amazing opportunity to
hone our skills as a viable attack
platform. The plethora of bombing
ranges opens incredible opportuni-
ties for the S-3 to show off its ver-
satility as part of an air wing strike
package," said Lt. Frank Sanchez,
VS-32 line division officer.
The Maulers supported air wing
combat training missions in an

Mentoring means making an impact on someone'

Master Chief, Navy Expeditionary Combat Command
T throughout our careers, each of us
ference in our careers or personal
lives. He or she might have been a chief,

enced Sailor in our command or someone

This person provided good advice, guid-
ance, or some well-placed calibration, and

The idea of mentoring is nothing new.
Each of us, at some point in our careers,
has been mentored, or mentored some-
one else. The Navy's mentor program pro-
vides a formal process to foster a mentor-
ing culture throughout the Navy in order
to develop and retain talented 21st century
Mentoring is an extremely powerful tool
for professional and personal development.
It's a process that deliberately pairs a per-
son who is more skilled or experienced (the
mentor), with one who is less so (the prot6-
g6e). Through this process, the experienced
person transfers skills and experiences in a
focused, effective and efficient manner.
Simply put, a mentor is a person who
helps someone else learn something the
learner would otherwise have learned less
well, more slowly or not at all.
Mentors help proteg6es set personal
and professional goals and then, work-
ing together, helps the prot6g6e develop
a mentoring plan to achieve those goals
while providing consistent feedback along
The mentor may play a variety of roles
- resource, advisor, coach, or consultant
- all with the goal of developing that prot6-
g6e into a future Navy leader. Mentors, by
being a positive influence, help instill self-
confidence into our Sailors, improve morale
and increase team building. Ultimately,
this gives Sailors greater job satisfaction
and career success.
Prot6g6es should provide their mentors
with honest and accurate information and
work toward those goals agreed upon in
the mentoring plan. Prot6g6es need to use
their mentors properly, and not circumvent
their chain of command.
'As I mentioned earlier, mentoring is
nothing new, but it is critical to the pro-
fessional growth of outstanding leaders.
Shipmates, take advantage of the opportu-
nity to have a mentor and benefit from the
wealth of experience and knowledge he or
she has to offer. If you have the opportuni-
ty to be a mentor to someone, do it! There's
no greater reward than developing today's
young Sailors into tomorrow's leaders.

Do you have double vision?
By Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina

I knew what double vision was
but I never had the experi-
ence nor did I know anyone
first-hand with double vision
until my sophomore year in high
school. One of my friends played
on the junior varsity football
He was given the opportunity to
scrimmage the varsity team. His
enthusiasm was overflowing and
then it happened to him during
practice. He ran down the line of
scrimmage and the defensive end
tackled him. That was the last
thing he remembered. He was
knocked out cold!
When he started to come out
of his stupor, he heard a voice
standing over him. He thought
it was an angel at first. However,
when he opened his eyes he real-
ized that the man he was looking
at was too ugly to be an angel.
It was the voice of his coach. He
saw multiple faces of the coach.
He had experienced "double

unwilling to report abuse
From Page 13
abuse, you are required by military regulation to
report the offense. See OPNAVINST 1752.2A (Navy)
or Marine Corps Order 1752.3B.
Pamela Tejeda, a VSS with the Fleet and Family
Support Center (FFSC) at NAS Lemoore, Calif.,
believes one of the most important things you can do
to help a victim is understand that many are unwill-
ing to report their abuse through official channels.
"This unwillingness to report has several reasons
that are all a part of the victim-abuser dynamic," says
Tejeda. "You might believe that you can't get along
without your abuser's financial support. You might
believe and hope things will get better. Or you might
feel that somehow you're the guilty one, that you real-
ly are worthless."
"'If a victim doesn't want to report to a victim's
advocate, then just be a friend to them," Tejeda adds.
"Listen to what they say and be prepared to help with
their safety plan. Always think about safety."
Helping with a safety plan may require no more
from you than lending moral support to a victim
as they devise their plan and make important (and
quite possibly lifesaving) decisions. However, "help-
ing" could also require a little more involvement, such
as recognizing a sign or code word to call the police or
letting the victim store personal items (money, keys,
important documents, and clothes) in your home.
Whatever your level of involvement, it's impera-
tive that you not agree to anything that you may be
unwilling or unable to do when the need arises.
Ultimately, it's up to the victim to decide to seek the
assistance of a professional service provider.
"Until they do," Tejeda suggests, "the best ways to
help are to respect their confidentiality, let the victim
know you're there for them - and then be there for
them when they need you. And always urge the victim
to seek help from a trained VA."
"The Navy has recognized the need and value of
victim's advocates for years," says Mike Hoskins, man-
ager of the Navy's Family Advocacy Program. "With
VAs in place, victims feel much more supported in the
process and feel that their concerns are being met."
Hoskins adds, "The idea behind the VA is to have
someone specifically identified to assist the victim in
navigating the system - for example, to help with
medical appointments or shelter arrangements, help
with obtaining a temporary restraining order, or to
provide transportation for the victim."
Before being hired as a VA, most advocates have
experience and training in working with victims of
domestic violence. Once hired, all are provided ser-
vice-specific training for safety assessments and safety
planning to reduce risk, as well as information about
military and civilian resources.
One of the most important roles of a VA is to assess
a home environment. This is particularly important
when victims of spousal abuse voluntarily bring their
situation to the attention of an advocate but don't want
the incident reported to the abuser's chain of command.
If it's the advocate's professional opinion that the
situation meets certain criteria, he or she can respect
the victims wish and not report the incident. However,
if the advocate decides it is grave enough, the incident
must be reported to the abusers command.
In addition to evaluating the situation, the VA will
inform victims about services that help them meet
their immediate needs, such as address relocation,
transitional compensation, job programs, personal
financial management, and safety.
Knowing they have options, and that they're not
stuck in their current environment, may prevent fur-
ther victimization..Other services and information
could include intervention options, counseling, and
If you ever need to help a domestic violence victim,
being a friend and knowing where to find a victim's
advocate are two of the best things you can do.

rodeo in hopes of learning something new and interesting.
"I'm really excited with the displays of new equipment.
I've seen a lot of new information and hopefully I can use
what I learn here today to help me be more aware so I
won't do something unconsciously."
Water Safety was also included in the rodeo. The Jax
Navy Yacht Club and Mulberry Cove Marina showed a
vibrant display of water activities for both sailing and
boating safety while Melissa Cavaco with the Mayport
Dive Club offered some valuable information on painful
jellyfish stings. "If you're ever stung by a jellyfish, the
sting can be painful but can be neutralized with vinegar
as well as other over the counter products the dive club
has available," explained Cavaco. The dive club offers
classes on scuba diving as well as dive trips.
Water safety can go further than just boating and diving
according to Fish and Wildlife conservationist Maynard
"Snakeman" Cox. As an avid wildlife enthusiast Cox
informed the audience about wildlife dangers. "The more
people know about their environment inside and outside
this base the safer their going to be. If they don't bother
to learn and see what is offered they may lose out on some
beneficial information that might have proven to save
their life," he said.
MWR would like to thank the following sponsors for
their contribution and making the safety rodeo a huge
success: VyStar Credit Union, Purcell's Motorcycle and
Marine World, A&M Motorcycle Safety Course, Jax Biker
Gear, Open Road Bicycles and Adamec Harley Davidson.
Neither MWR, nor the U.S. Navy or any other part of
the federal government officially endorses any company,
sponsor or its products or services.

Keeping your dog cool
By Capt. Maggie Palopoli, DVM
NAS Jax Veterinary Treatment Facility
Wen the sun beats down and the
temperature rises, remember
these safety tips for keeping your
dog cool this summer:
* Have plenty of fresh water available
at all times. If you are taking your
dog to the beach or a park, don't
forget to pack Buddy's water for
the trip. Avoid having your
dog drink the salt water. If
he drinks too much salt water
and not enough fresh water, the
excess salt intake can cause side
effects ranging from mild disorientation
to seizures and coma.
* Don't walk your dog on hot pavement
or sand. The pads on his feet are tough,
but they can still develop painful burns.
Walk your dog during early morning or
later in the evening if you plan to walk on
pavement or sand.
* Always provide a shaded area for your
dog when outside. This will help keep him
cool and protect his skin. Dogs can get sun-
burns too! Pink noses are at higher risk
of being sunburnt, as well as the skin of
white or light colored dogs.
* The easiest way to keep your dog cool
is by keeping him indoors during the hot-
test part of the day.
What should I do if my dog has already
Dogs have very few sweat glands to get
rid of excess heat. Instead, their primary
during the summer heat
way of releasing heat is through panting.
Heat stroke results when a dog is exposed
to extreme heat or excessive exercising,
and the internal body temperature elevates
to 106+ degrees Fahrenheit. If you are
concerned that your dog has become over-
heated, call your veterinarian and imme-
diately begin the process of cooling
him down. The goal is to cause a
d! gradual decrease in body tem-
Bring your dog into an air
conditioned home or vehicle if
possible. Wet the skin and posi-
tion fans with the air blowing direct-
ly onto the dog. You can also cool them
down by bathing him in cool water. Never
use ice water! Exposure to cold water will
impair blood circulation to the extremities
and may cause further harm to the dog.
Offer small amounts of water. Too much
water at one time could result in vomiting
of the water or more severe complications,
such as bloat. Depending on the severity
of the heat stroke, your dog may need to
be hospitalized and given supportive care
with intravenous fluids. In some dogs, the
organ damage caused by the elevated tem-
perature is too overwhelming, and they are
unable to recover.
Once again, prevention is the best medi-
cine. Avoid the sizzling mid-day heat and
keep the water bowl filled. These simple
tips will help you and your dog have fun
and stay cool this summer.

By Beth Wiruth
Special Contributor -, l ---
Last week, I attended a
luncheon for military
wives. The event was
sponsored and hosted by
a women's political group.
Our hosts were women from
all backgrounds and ages.
Each table was arranged to
have a nice ratio of group
members and military
I sat with fellow military
wife, Debbie, who serves as
the co-ombudsman for my
husband's new command as
well as the ombudsman for
her husband's air wing. As
is the custom when military
wives meet, they inevita-
bly talk about former com-
mands, relocation, bases,
deployment, moving and
related military topics. As
we talked with our hosts
we found ourselves defining
terms we use daily.
The gracious six group
members at our table asked
many questions about our
lives, our lifestyle and our
service member. During
the course of the event all
military wives were asked
to stand, introduce them-
selves and tell a bit about
themselves. As happens,
as each succeeding spouse
spoke, they related to pre-
vious wives in their com-
ments all the while using
common military lingo.
In the midst of these
introductions the group
member sitting next to me
tapped me on the shoulder
and with a most perplexed
expression declared, "You
all have your own lifestyle.
You have your own culture.

May is Military Spouse
Appreciation Month. It
is fitting for an entire
month to be dedicated to
the strength behind those
who defend our nation. As
spouses, you are to be hon-
ored and even pampered
this month (and yes, you
can tell your service mem-
ber I said so).
I recently heard someone
say, "We are not a nation
at war; we are a military
at war." Our economy con-
tinues to grow; consumer
spending is strong and
steady. Therefore we as a
nation are not daily faced
with the challenge of war as
experienced by this nation
during World War I, World
War II and to some extent
Korea and Vietnam. Many
do not know or understand
the challenges of military
spouses, they don't under-
stand our language.
I am dedicating the
remainder of this month's
columns to identifying and
highlighting military spous-
es. In the next three weeks
you will hear of men and
women, spouses of service
members who are inspir-
ing and courageous. For the
non-military reader these
examples will give you a
glimpse into our lives, our
culture, and our challenges.

In the early 1990s, a case of
MRSA was reported in a person
who had no contact with a hospi-
tal, and since then what is known
as "community acquired" MRSA
has spread to every continent.
While hospital MRSA generally

community acquired organism
tends to infect healthy people.

Active duty members are
at an increased risk for MRSA
infections as are athletes, pris-
on inmates and children young-
er than two years. Any cut or
scrape on the skin, including ath-
letes foot or other fungal infection
increases the risk. Crowded con-
ditions and poor hygiene increase
the spread of the infection.
A MRSA infection usually
starts as a tender red bump in
the skin. The bump is often dark
red or purple at its border and
feels harder than the surrounding
The infection can look like a spi-
der bite. Most people who go to
the doctor complaining of a spider
bite are found to have a MRSA
Because MRSA infections can
worsen rapidly, it is important to
seek medical attention early. For
a small red area, it may be pos-
sible to use antibiotic creams to
control the infection.
There are antibiotic pills that
effectively treat a MRSA infec-
tion. If the infection has become
severe enough to cause an
abscess, it should be cut open and
drained. If fever or other signs of
severe infection are present then
hospitalization may be required.
We all carry bacteria on our bod-
ies, and some people carry MRSA
without having an infection.
MRSA tends to live inside the
nose and nasal swabs are used to
diagnose carriers. Approximately
one in 200 Americans carries
MRSA, but carriers are at least
six times as frequent within the
active duty military. People who
carry MRSA are seven times as
likely to have skin infections, but
they can also spread the infec-
tion to others without getting
infected themselves. Anyone
with a MRSA infection should be
checked to see if they are a car-
rier. All carriers can be treated
with antibiotic nasal ointments
and antibiotic body washes.
Preventing a MRSA skin infec-
tion is much better medicine than
simply treating it. Simple things
can reduce the spread of an infec-
1. Don't share towels, razors,
brushes or bars of soap. Use liq-
uid body washes if possible.
2. Shower as soon as possible
after any sport that involves skin-
to-skin contact. Use shower shoes
if in a public shower.
3. Any cut or scrape should be
well cleaned, covered with an
antibiotic ointment and kept cov-
ered until it heals.
4. Athlete's foot and other fun-
gal infections should be treated as
soon as discovered.
5. Clean shared athletic equip-
ment with diluted bleach solu-
tion between users. In the base
gym, use the available disinfec-
6. Wash hands or use alcohol
based antibiotic cleansers prior to
picking up children, especially if
they are less than two years old.
7. Anyone with a skin infection
should not play contact sports
until medically cleared.
Common skin infections have
become more serious due to the
spread of MRSA. These infections
spread rapidly and can be severe
if not treated. Any new tender
red bump should be brought to
medical attention early to pre-
vent a severe skin infection. Any
spider bite should be treated as
MRSA. The spread of these infec-
tions can be minimized by follow-
ing a few simple guidelines.

before onset of sexual activ-

females who are sexually

Nearly 10 percent of seniors are 65 and older and more
than 50 percent older than 80 suffering from some form of
memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer's disease, seniors and
their caregivers need to be leery of strange or unexpected
callers, warns the NCPC.
The organization has some tips to help seniors and their
caregivers avoid being victims of telemarketing fraud:
* Sign up for the Do Not Call Registry at 888-382-1222.
That will help decrease calls from telemarketers.
*-If a caller asks for personal information such as a
credit card number or Social Security number, say, "I don't "
give out personal information over the phone. I'll contact
the company directly and provide them with the necessary . -
information." Then hang up.
* If a caller offers a free item and then wants you to pay --
for shipping and handling or taxes, say, "I shouldn't have V. ' '
to send money for something that's free." Then hang up. i
* If a caller wants a decision on a limited-time offer -- - .; -
right away say, "I'd like some time to think about this.
Tell me how I can get in touch with you. If I'm interested,
I'll call you back."
* If you don't understand all the details of the verbal
offer, have the telemarketer send you the information by | N
mail. If the caller won't do that say, "If you can't mail me * P-nl
the information, then I can't talk to you." MARINE CORPS

CONFIDENCE IN CRISIS
On July 16, 1945, the USS Indianapolis departed from
San Francisco for the American B-29 base on Tinian island
with a top-secret cargo that would ultimately put an end to
World War II--components for the first operational atomic
bombs. After a record run, covering 5,300 miles in only ten
days, the Indianapolis successfully delivered her cargo on
July 26, 1945, and was ordered to set a course from Guam to
the Leyte Gulf in the Philippines to prepare for the invasion
of Japan. Traveling unescorted, at fourteen minutes past
midnight on July 30, 1945, she was hit by two Japanese
torpedoes midway between Guam and Leyte, sending her to
a watery grave in twelve minutes. Of the 1,196 men aboard,
about 900 sailors and Marines entered the water. Five
horrifying days later, 317 men who had stu-ived the terror
of shark attacks, hypothermia, severe dehydration and
salt-water hallucinations, were accidentally spotted and
rescued. HarrTell will be sharing his incredible story of
survival at both the 9am and 10:30am services this morning.
Harrell's book "Out of the Depths: A Survivor's Story of the
Sinking of the USS Indianapolis" will be available at the
church on this day as well.

NH Jacksonville Deployment Health Clinic
helps ease the transition to life back home
From Naval Hospital Jacksonville
As you deploy and after
you return, from support-
*ng the war on terror, you
may find that you are experienc-
ing many changes. These can
range from, physical injuries to
financial issues or family rela-
tionships to mentally readjust-
menting to a different lifestyle
and environment. Some of your
challenges may include lingering
issues related to your experiences
Navy medicine and Naval
Hospital Jacksonville wants to
be there for you as you deal with
these issues and settle back into
life at home.
To do that, we must first deter-
mine your needs. Naval Hospital
Jacksonville recently opened
a Deployment Health Clinic at
NAS Jacksonville located at the
Naval Branch Health Clinic
(NBHC) Jacksonville. The clinic
is the hub for deploying service
members in the NH Jacksonville
area of cognizance, and is now
fully on line and conducting eval-
uations in compliance with the
Global Electronic Deployment
Health Assessment (EDHA) DoD
Instruction 6490.03. The EDHC
electronic version has been avail-
able at NHBC Jacksonville and
Naval Hospital Jacksonville since
Family Nurse Practitioner-BC
Capt. Rachel Smith, HM2 Oliver
McKenney and Family Nurse
Practitioner Kevin McCarthy
administer the program here. The
hospital is in the process of cre-
dentialing a mental health pro-
vider who will work in the deploy-
EDHA is system-wide and
encompasses all military services
including both active duty and
Reserve members. It is an early
intervention approach to assess
for physical deployment relat-
ed issues as well mental health
issues such as deployment related
stress and Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder (PTSD) after the mili-
tary members return from duty
Smith described the objective
as, "actually meeting the ser-
vice member's needs. We don't
want them to fall through the
cracks with physical or psychoso-
cial issues that have never been
addressed," she said.
By Navy instruction, unit
commanders are responsible
for ensuring that deployed ser-
vice members receive the Post-
Deployment Health Assessment
(PDHA) upon return and a Post-
Deployment Health Reassessment
(PDHRA) three to six months
after deployment. These assess-
hosts ASW Tournament
By Lt. Cmdr. Michael Brand
Commander Destroyer Squadron 24 hosted the
second annual COMDESRON 24 South East
Area Regional Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)
Tournament (SEARAT) May 2.
The tournament is designed to evaluate the warf-
ighter's tactical forethought and knowledge of ASW
through the use of written examinations, GRAM anal-
ysis and a computer video game emphasizing tactical
employment of military assets. The event's objective
is to provide another venue to increase ASW training
opportunity in the Southeast Region.
Ten teams participated in the regional event which
was open to all surface ship, helicopter and P-3 com-
mands at NS Mayport and NAS Jacksonville and
submarine crews from NSB Kings Bay, Ga. During
the tournament, teams were evaluated on their tacti-
cal knowledge in the areas of coordinated ASW opera-
tions, sensor employment, and battle space manage-
Close evaluation of the ship's ASW teams gave the
participants an adequate assessment of their tactical
evaluators and sonar operators. The tournament's
competitiveness escalates the tactical forethought and
warfighter enthusiasm, transitioning operators into
battle space planners.
Congratulations to USS Vicksburg (CG 69) and
its ASW team for the title of "King SEARAT" as
COMDESRON 24 ASW Tournament Champion. They
were awarded the coveted "Golden Ballbat" trophy
As'coordinators of both the ASW tournament series
and the Southeastern ASW Integrated Training
Initiative exercise series, COMDESRON 24 will con-
tinue to offer effective training venues for all ASW
platforms. All commands are invited to participate in
future tournaments and exercises.
New film being screened here
Army brat and filmmaker Donna Musil is screen-
ing her documentary, "BRATS: Our Journey
Home" in Jacksonville May 22 at 6 p.m. at the
Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, Hixon Auditorium,
829 Riverside Ave., Jacksonville. The screening is free.
There will be a question and answer session with the
writer-director after the show.
Brats are people who grow up on U.S. military bases
around the world, then struggle to fit into an American
lifestyle with which they have little in common. The show
documents how growing up in the military affects adult
life and relationships.
Some of the better-known brats who participated in
the film include: Kris Kristofferson, who narrated and
donated original songs to the production and retired Army
Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf who is both a brat and the
father of brats.
Musil is excited to bring the film to Jacksonville.
"With the rich military history of the area and the large
population of adult brats and retired military, we have
the opportunity to reach the military brat audience and
their extended families and friends at this special screen-
ing," she said. "We brats have no true hometowns and our
friends are scattered to the winds. As a result, we often
go through adulthood feeling lost and alone. This film is
dedicated to those who have known that feeling."

She noted that some service
members may be concerned about
the privacy of the information
gathered in these assessments.
And they may worry about what
they share creating a stigma with
their co-workers or even affecting
their career. She said, that all
work with the service member is
conducted behind closed doors.
Beyond the patient privacy
requirements that all military
medicine patients are entitled
to, these evaluations are treated
as confidential and the informa-
tion garnered is coded into the
DoD's electronic records system
so that only the provider who ini-
tially entered the information can
access it. Any other access would
trigger an automatic audit. The
evaluations are primarily used to
generate statistical information
resulting in increased awareness
by military medicine of the needs
of service member and expediting
resolution of medical issues.
Smith summed up the purpose
of this program saying that it is
not to impede the service mem-
bers. "It is to get the service
members back to where they can
return to active duty," she said.

The deployment roller coaster:
Emotions for children
By Kelli Kirwan
LIFELines � 4:
employment is something that Navy
and Marine Corps families live
. with. It's part of your life if your
spouse is a member of the seagoing servic-
es. Adults experience a whole spectrum of
emotions, but we can usually discuss our
feelings about the deployment and find
understanding among our peers. We can
learn about the roller coaster of emotion
that comes along with a deployment.
! Once we understand our emotions, we
pan begin to adjust and prepare to combat
phe more difficult times. Children, how-
ever, don't always understand that roller-
coaster ride. Without their permission or
consent, they are loaded into the front seat
of the emotional roller coaster and taken
through the loops and turns of deployment.
There are seven emotional stages that
adults typically experience during a deploy-
ment. It's harder to put a label on what
children go through. We can't always tell
how they're feeling, and they can't always
tell us what they're thinking, or what they

comes to children and deployment, it is
that children and deployment are highly

Words will instead give you clues by his

than anyone, so it's up to you to start the
conversations and give the attention and
affection that will reassure your child.
: Before your Sailor or Marine leaves
pven before a Sailor or Marine parent
leaves, .some children start to behave dif-
ferently- some children act out, while oth-
ers withdraw. They may become anxious
at the thought of their parent leaving, and
develop unfounded fears. Older children
wvho can understand more of the current
events that affect our military (and, by
default, them) may develop fears that are
not unfounded, and cannot easily be put to
Children have an uncanny habit of ask-
ing profound questions that have no easy
answers. Questions dealing with life,
aeath, and a hundred "what ifs" in between
can really test your parenting skills, but
take the time to answer them truthful-
ly and matter-of-factly. When answering,
consider your child's age, emotional matu-
rity and ability to process tough issues.
Give enough information to satisfy their
questions, but be careful not to bring up
additional issues or subjects they may not
be ready to know.

1 In one family's experience with a deploy-

4nd concern for the departing parent, while
their 5-year-old sister acted as if the par-
ent was merely going to the commissary
for milk. The next morning, when still half
sleep, the little girl asked for her daddy.
Her mother explained that daddy had left
the day before.
The little girl sleepily said she missed
her daddy and didn't want him to leave.
The mother took the opportunity to tell her
daughter that she missed Daddy too (vali-
dating the little girl's feelings), and that
he would be home when they got to the big
heart circled on the calendar (reassuring
that all would be well). The child's detach-
ment had only been a coping mechanism to
help her deal with what she could not com-
prehend- her home without her daddy for
As the deployment begins, the whole
family works to establish the new routine.
Children may test the parent left behind
to find out what they can get away with.
Everyone is readjusting to help fill the
empty space left by their Sailor or Marine.
It's important to establish structure and
routine as soon as possible. Don't be sur-
prised if some of the kids become mel-
ancholy, and their grades begin to slip.
Other children may display defiance and
belligerence. Younger children may regress
back to bedwetting or "accidents." Clearly
defined limits will give children a feeling of
security at a time when they may feel the
most insecure but can't express it in words.
Life will settle down into some semblance
of routine and normalcy. Don't get too com-
fortable, though. Someone forgot to tell the
children that this is the time to stabilize
and hit their stride. Most of the time things
do settle down, but keep watching for signs
of distress in their behavior and attitude. If
you feel your children are having more dif-
ficulty adjusting than you think is normal,
consult the counselors at your Fleet and
Family Service Center or the Marine Corps
Your Sailor or Marine is coming home
As homecoming approaches, don't be
tempted to let things slide. The reunion
can be as unsettling for children as the
departure. Don't worry that all the proj-
ects were not accomplished or that you
didn't meet the goals you may have set.
Your children will take their cue from you.
Happy anticipation is better than stressful
worry about the fast-approaching reunion.
If you thought the roller-coaster ride
had stopped the day the ship pulled in,
then you're in for a surprise. There will
be a honeymoon period, but then the reor-
ganizing of the family begins. The chil-
dren may resent being disciplined by their
returned parent and react in various ways.
They may need time to adjust to having to
answer to two "big people".
Children may have great anxiety when
the Sailor or Marine first returns to duty.
They need to be reassured that they will
see their parent again that evening. Other
children may not be able to wait for their
Sailor or Marine to go back to work because
their routine has been upset once again.
Communication helps children deal with
their feelings when it comes to deployment
and the reunion. Encouraging your chil-
dren to talk (and really listening to them
thoughtfully) will help you help them with
those sudden dips and turns.
The parent at home is the emotional
rudder that steers the family through the
deployment. You have a great effect on
how your children handle life in the Navy
or Marine Corps, and how well they handle
deployments. If they know you're there
beside them on that rollercoaster, they
won't be as afraid the next time they have
to take that first big hill.
MUSLIM: New 'Topcats' commander
marks first in naval
From Page 4
"After Sept. 11, pretty much the entire
American nation knew about Islam, and
the image they had was not the right one,"
S"I read an article, which I believe to be
true, that Islam was basically hijacked.
The Islamic teachings were turned around
qr taken out of context so that they could
14e used for political gain and to incite vio-
lent behavior. Suicide and killing innocent
people is strictly forbidden in Islam."
Khan is flying missions over Afghanistan
as part of CVW 9 to bring stability and
security to the region and help defeat
the Taliban who incite extremism. CVW
6, assigned to the USS John C. Stennis
Carrier Strike Group, entered the U.S.
Fifth Fleet area of operations Feb. 19 to
conduct maritime security operations
in regional waters, as well as to provide
support for the International Security
Assistance Force, comprised of more than
35,000 troops with contributions from 37
fiations, on the ground participating in
Operation Enduring Freedom.
S "As far as the mission is concerned, I
hope and wish the same things I wish for
ipy fellow Americans. I hope there's peace.
.1I hope there's stability. I hope for all peo-
:ple in the region that they can go to the
market as freely as I can and let their chil-
dren play on the street or get a job and be
able to provide for their family," he said.
"That is what my hope is - that in the end
there will be stability and everyone will
be able to enjoy the same freedoms that I
enjoy in the United States."
Khan said while flying missions over
Afghanistan from Stennis, he flies over
Pakistan and catches a glimpse of his
native country. "It is awesome to look
down to be able to see Pakistan knowing I
lived 18 years of my life there," he said.
After 20 successful years in the Navy,
today marks the pinnacle of his career as
he assumes command at sea. However,
Khan has no intention of retiring anytime
"I have completed 20 years, and I abso-
lutely love the Navy," he said. "I'm still
having a lot of fun, and I don't see myself
getting out anytime soon. I love it, I enjoy
it, and I feel extremely honored and privi-
leged to be an American and serving in
the United States Navy. Knowing what
I know now, I would not change anything
about my decision to join the Navy."
Asked what he hopes to achieve down the
road in terms of his career, Khan smiled.
"The sky is the limit," he said, suggesting a
desire to become the first Muslim admiral
in U.S. Navy history.
