Lt. Matthew D'Souza,
a chaplain with
Naval Hospital
Jacksonville's Pastoral
Care Department, recently
had the honor of meeting
Pope Benedict XVIfat the
Vatican in Rome.
D'Souza was there as his
brother, Albert, former-
ly the Bishop of Lucknow
for more than 14 years in
India received the Pallium
June 29, elevating him
to Archepiscopate of the
Metropolitan Archdiocese of
Agra, India.
Fifty-one bishops from
around the world were
appointed to archbishop on
that date with 46 receiving
the Pallium at the Vatican.
The rest were elevated to
archbishop by the Papal
Nuncio in their country.
D'Souza and Albert were
joined by their brother,
Edwin, who is also a priest
in Toronto, Canada. A
fourth brother, Most Rev.
Alphonse D'Souza, S.J.,
who has been a bishop in
India for more than 20
years, was unable to attend

Combined Federal Campaign kickoff Sept. 14


By CW03 Charles Jakes
NAS Jax CFC Loaned Executive'
The 2007 Combined Federal
Campaign (CFC) kick-off for
NAS Jax and tenant com-
mands is Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. at the
Bachelor Officer's Quarters Pavilion.
Several non-profit organizations will
be there to provide information about
what their organizations provide to
the community. The event will also
feature individuals from our local fed-
eral community who will share their
personal testimonies and how they
were assisted by a CFC charity.
There has been a major change
in the CFC this year. The Office of
Personnel Management, the govern-
ing agency for the CFC, has given all
participating charities a permanent
five-digit code.
This code number replaces the four-
digit codes that you used in past cam-
paigns to designate your pledge. The
five-digit code will stay the same for
a charity for as long as it is doing
business as a non-profit organization.
When you are completing your pledge
form, please take the time to review
the charity list booklet and identify
the charities you wish to support and
use their new five-digit code. No new
codes will begin with zero.

TRICARE Dental

change helps children

with special needs
By Loren Barnes and Marsha Childs
Naval Hospital Jacksonville Public Affairs

Naval Hospital Jacksonville Pediatric Dentist
Capt. Margaret Alexander provided valuable
information which was used by Congress to
legislate an important change in the TRICARE den-
tal benefit. This change covers anesthesia services
and hospital costs for dental care for patients with
developmental, mental or physical disabilities and
for children age 5 and under.
"When on staff at the Naval Postgraduate Dental
School, National Naval Medical Center (NNMC)
Bethesda, Md.," Alexander explained, "I was also spe-
cialty leader for Pediatric Dentistry for the Navy." She
said during that time it came to her attention that
TRICARE did not pay for the general anesthesia or
for the facility fee to have the dental work done. "This
is a sad disparity because if the same child needs her
tonsils out, TRICARE will take care of it out in town,"
she said.
Alexander pointed out, "A segment of our dependent
population, those with severe autism, cerebral palsy,
epilepsy-
these patients
really can't
be treated for
dental dis- .
ease in your
standard
dental office.
Many of us
kept asking
the question,
'Why isn't
military med-
icine help
ing out these
kids?' It is
very heart-
breaking to
have military
families go
to Navy and
Marine Corp
Relief Society
to pay for Naval Hospital Jacksonville Pediatric
$4,000. worth Dentist Capt.. Margaret Alexander per-
of medical forms a routine dental exam. Alexander
billss" was recently involved in expanding
bills veralTRICARE benefits for special needs chil-

organizations
had been pushing for changes to fix this prob-lem. And
finally, under the National Defense Authorization Act
of 2007, the expanded benefit was passed into law.
Alexander indicated that the coverage doesn't cover
all the family's expenses associated with such treat-
ment but that it does make a dent in the bill. It basi-
cally covers the cost of the same-day-surgery suite
and payment for the oral surgeon or pediatric dentist
doing the work.
A TRICARE Management Activity release
announced in December 2006 that the change in stat-
ute does not include the actual dental services cov-
ered through the TRICARE Dental Program and the
TRICARE Retiree Dental Program. It does, however,
enhance the benefit for military families.
To realize savings under the program parents must
submit their bills for reimbursement. Specifies on the
implementation of the change are still being written
into TRICARE Manuals and dental care services con-
tracts.
Larry Coffey, a retired Navy senior chief petty offi-
cer and father of Johnathan, a 12-year-old with a
seizure disorder, is one parent who says his family
will benefit from the change. "My son has seizures.
Johnathan wouldn't cooperate in the dental chair
which is very typical. If you have seizure potential,
they have to put you in the operating room for that.
They had to give him general anesthesia just to have
cavities filled," he said.
Most states require insurance companies to provide
coverage for such dental procedures, but TRICARE,
the military health plan, was not covering this care. "I
took my son to a hospital in Knoxville, Tenn.," Coffey
stated. "We had the dental insurance. I received a
$5,000 bill because it was not a covered benefit. They
would pay for the dental procedures, but they said
general anesthesia is a medical procedure and nobody
would cover it."
Coffey first met Alexander in 2005 at NNMC
Bethesda, when she treated Johnathan at the mili-
tary medical facility to save the family the costs of

Looking back in time...


Hey, MoneyMan!
I thought that if you tried
to use your debit card but
didn't have enough money
in your account, the store
would reject your card. I
didn't know that you could
overdraft your debit cards.
Last week I got my credit
union statement and I had
more than $150 in over-
draft fees, but I never wrote
a single check. They told
me that I had gone over my
account with my debit card.
What's up with that?
MoneyMan Sez:
When debit cards first
came out, you could not
overdraft them. Now banks
and credit unions have
found yet another way to
make a huge profit.
Today about 45 percent
of all overdrafts are caused
by using a debit card or
by taking money out from
the ATM. The fees add up
quickly at $30 to $40 a pop.
Keep in mind that a debit
card is just a plastic ver-
sion of a check, except it
has no fixed value. In other
words, it is more dangerous
than a check and can cause
bigger problems.


If you use debit cards, be
smart about how you do it.
Keep records. Write down
every dollar you withdraw
at ATMs as well as your
point-of-sale charges. Do
not use debit cards for small
purchases - use cash. Keep
a small reserve in your
account to protect you from
making costly mistakes.
Do not use a debit card to
buy gas, check into a hotel,
or rent a car. A $100 hold
can be put on your card
even if you spent less than
that amount.
Most folks in the military
do not make an excessive
amount of money and they
must be careful with the
money they do have. Don't
throw yours away by pay-
ing overdraft fees, bounced
check fees, ATM fees and
other costly fees.
These fees can quickly eat
up a large chunk of your
paycheck and create both
short and long term finan-
cial troubles.
More questions? Call Hey
MoneyMan at 778-0353.


ON THE HOMEFRONT


Much ado about a set of stickers


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor
TT hen I heard last month that
the Air Force will soon elim-
S inate its requirement that
each military-family owned vehicle
have a base decal, I was giddy with
excitement. Finally, there would be
reprisal for hours spent waiting in the
office for new stickers.
No more fretting over which small
square sticker goes on the left of the
long rectangular one, and which stick-
er goes on the right. No more clinch-
ing teeth as I set the decal onto its
final resting place, hoping that it is
straight and correct.
I imagined the possibilities of look-
ing out my windshield and for once
not being reminded of my husband's
job, rank, last duty station, and the
fact that our decals will soon expire. I
envisioned washing the car windows
and not worrying about the reflective
things coming loose (lest I have to
wait more hours for new ones), never
mind that it takes a razor blade and
lots of elbow grease to ultimately
remove the decals. That's how scary
the decal office is. We will go to great,
even foolish lengths, to avoid it.
And then I remembered that we are
not Air Force. We are Navy. We will
still have stickers.
Contrary to popular belief that base
decals are for security, those rascal-
ly stickers actually got their start in
the 1970's, when they were created
to manage traffic and basically create
more hoops for vehicle registration.
,'"Military wives aren't wasting enough'
'time on base," one official might have


said to another. "Let's make them reg-
ister their vehicles now, too."
"But aren't their cars registered
with the state already?"
"Well, if you have a better sugges-
tion for getting people to read old
copies of Retired Officer in the lobby
and waste good money at the vending
machines buying Sprite and M&M's
for their kids, then let me know."
"You have a point. And just to make
things even more frustrating, let's put
a few grumpy civilian workers, the
kind that can't be fired-like, ever-
behind the desk."
"Yes, and let's make each branch
of service use a different database so
that they can not work together, and
then, get this, even the base police
will have hoops to jump through."
"Bwahahahaha."
, There are, of course, many faults
inherent to the base decal system. It's
been a silly operation ever since laws
began requiring that all motorists
(civilian and military) have a state-
issued 'driver's license, proof of regis-
tration, insurance and an emissions
and safety inspection before they can
drive.
"We've been putting our own per-
sonnel through a process that sim-
ply duplicates state and federal man-
datory requirements," Col. William
Sellers, Air Force chief of force pro-
tection, said in a release put out by
the Secretary of the Air Force Public
Affairs.
What's more, base decals might
even be a security concern because
they single out military families,
potentially making them a target for
terrorists.


Pre-9/11, it was common for base
guards to permit vehicles on base
simply because their decal was up-
to-date and in the correct location.
(Incidentally, it was also common
for base guards to send yours truly
straight to the decal office because
either my decal was expired or in the
wrong position.) Post 9/11, howev-
er, I've never been admitted on base
without someone checking my ID card
first. Post 9/11, some military wives
have actually scraped decals off their
car to be more inconspicuous.
Yet for -all its problems, I will miss
base decals. Seeing them affixed to an
oncoming car often causes me to nod
and wave in a familiar way, like see-,
ing another mom with a stroller full
of kids at the mall.
Base decals, especially the ones
with eagles and stars on them, are
also helpful in allowing junior offi-
cers fair warning about who they are
about to cut off on the highway. And,
of course, base decals offer us the
chance to catch up on our reading.
Yes, I guess I'm becoming a bit emo-
tional over the passing of this bastion
of military life after all. I might even
miss trips to the decal office to wait in
line...
Oh, but wait. We're not Air Force.
We're Navy.
So, um, save a copy of Retired
Officer for me in the lobby!

Ops officer to retire with 32 years service


y Iaylee LaRocque m


N AS Jax Operations Officer
Cmdr. Ted Carter will
retire after 32 years of
naval service tomorrow at 10 a.m.
at the NAS Jax Officers' Club.
Capt. Mark Laughton, command-
ing officer of Vanderbilt University
Navy ROTC Unit will be the guest
speaker.
A native of Ft. Lauderdale,
Carter enlisted in the Navy in July
1975. After completing Machinist's
Mate "A" School, he reported on
board USS John Paul Jones, (DDG-
32) and was subsequently select-
ed to attend the Naval Academy
Preparatory School, Newport R.I.
He was commissioned an ensign
in May 1981 upon graduation from
the U.S. Naval Academy with a
Bachelor of Science Degree in
Oceanography.
Carter was designated a naval
aviator in November 1982. After
completing training with VP-30,
Carter reported to VP-56 at NAS
Jacksonville where he served as
flight division officer and assistant
operations officer.
In October 1986, Carter reported
to the U.S. Naval Academy as a
physical education instructor and
head coach of the academy's colle-
giate pistol team. He led his teams
to three national titles and was
named Collegiate Shooting Coach
of the Year in 1988.
His next tour took him to
Oceanographic Development
Squadron Eight, NAS Patuxent
River, Md., where he served as
aviation safety officer and safety/
NATOPS department head. He
qualified in the RP-3A/D, P-3B Mod
and UP-3A aircraft and completed
numerous worldwide detachments.
Upon completion of P-3 weap-
ons system and tactical training
in December 1992, Carter report-
ed to VP-1 at NAS Barbers Point,
Hawaii where he served as safety/
NATOPS department head, aircraft
maintenance officer and interim
squadron executive officer. During
this tour he deployed to the Indian
Ocean and Persian Gulf in support


Cmdr. Ted Carter


of Operation Southern Watch and
Operation Restore Hope.
In November 1994, Carter
reported to Joint Task Force Six,
Fort Bliss, Texas where he served
as regional plans and operations
division chief. During this tour,
he supported various federal,
state and local counter-drug law
enforcement agencies throughout
the United States in planning and
executing Department of Defense
missions supporting the president's
national drug control strategy.
In February 1998, Carter
joined the Strategy, Policy and
Plans Directorate, U.S. Southern
Command, Miami, where he served
as chief, Deliberate Plans Division
and eputy director of plans. He
was responsible for the develop-
ment, review and maintenance of
all contingency plans, as directed
by the chairman, Joint Chiefs of
Staff and Commander in Chief,
U.S. Southern Command in order
to meet national security objectives
and support United States politi-
cal/military policy for Central and
South America and the Caribbean.
In May 2001, Carter reported to
NAS Keflavik, Iceland as executive
officer where he supported multiple
base and tenant command require-
ments and conducted preliminary
planning work that was used in
the eventual closure of the base in
2006.
Carter reported aboard NAS
Jacksonville as Operations offi-


cer/Air and Port Operations
Installation program director in
August 2004. He and his Air Ops
team have supported multiple fleet
aviation requirements, numer-
ous air detachments, Federal
Emergency Management Agency
disaster response, Super Bowl
XXXIX and the 2004 and 2006 NAS
Jax Air Shows.
During his career, Carter has
accumulated more than 4,100 hours
in different naval aircraft.
Carter was an All-American in
Pistol at the U.S.Naval Academy
and is the 59th Navy officer to be
award the distinguished pistol shot
badge. During his career, he has
participated as competitor, coach,
captain or officer-in-charge of 15
All-Navy Pistol Teams.
According to Carter, all his tours
are memorable. "Flying P-3s doing
antisubmarine warfare looking for
Soviet subs was a great experience.
I also had a tour working with law
enforcement officials doing coun-
ter narcotics. Taking drugs off the
streets of the U.S. was a huge moti-
vator for me," said Carter. "I also
really enjoyed my tour as executive
officer at NAS Keflavik, Iceland. I
got to interact with a lot of differ-
ent tenants and work with some.
great folks. And, how can you top
coming back to NAS Jax. I started
here with VP-56 in .1983 and have
never been to the same duty sta-
tion twice. So to be able to close
out my career here, working, with
all these great people, just can't
get any better. I joined the Navy to
serve my country and see the world
and I did, visiting more than 35
countries."
As far as his professional accom-
plishments, Carter says he credits
everything to the "great folks who
have worked with me." "Statistics
on missions flown or how many
illegal drugs were taken off the
streets; you can't do that without
great people in the field. When I
was a mission commander on a P-
3, the success of finding an elusive
Soviet submarine was the result of
the aircrew. When we win, we all
win. At Air Ops, there are so many

different things we do, but it's the
people who keep it all going," he
added.
So what will he miss the most
about being in the Navy? "I'll defi-
nitely miss the people. There is a
sense of trust that I don't think
any other profession offers. I look
at my Sailors when I hold quarters
and tell. them that I would trust
the lives of my wife and kids to any
one of them. I will miss that trust,
camaraderie, kinship and 'how can
I help you' attitude," stated Carter.
As a leader, Carter offers this
advice. "I look at my time in the
Navy as being an honor to serve.
If you wake up every morning and
you consider it an honor to serve,
you'll be motivated to do your job
better. The day you wake up and
look at the Navy as just anoth-
er job, that's the day you should
think about getting out," he said.
,"Waking up and realizing you
volunteer to do this job and that
people are depending on you, gives
you choices. You can do that job to
the best of your ability or do it just
good enough."
After 32 years of naval service
and the constant moves, Carter


says he is thankful for the support
of this family.
"My biggest fans and supporters
are my wife of 23 years, Sue and
two daughters, Rebecca and Erica.
Every time I got a set of orders,
they were ready to go. They never
complained and were ready for the
adventure. Without their support it
would not have happened," stated
Carter. "It's been a very reward-
ing 32 years and has gone by a
whole lot quicker than I imagined.
It's been great. Now it's time to do
something new and different."
In the future, Carter plans to
stay in Jacksonville with his fam-
ily and take a couple months off to
work special projects around the
house.
"I was very impressed with the
Troops to Teachers briefings and
am considering going into teaching.
I've also been shooting competitive-
ly on the All-Navy teams through-
out most of my career and will con-
tinue to compete and train others
on shooting fundamentals and fire-
arm safety. I will also become more
involved in my church and local
community volunteer efforts," said
Carter.-

LSS gets the "low-



hanging fruit" first


From CNRSE
Lean Six Sigma (LSS) can make the
greatest difference in what are
labeled rapid improvement pro-
cesses (RIPs). These are not complex
Black Belt problems requiring months
and months to collect data and develop
processes - rather they are projects that
may have a simple or efficacious solution
that merely requires a shift in institu-
tional thinking to correct. In other words,
RIPs are the "low hanging fruit" of LSS
projects. I
"Rapid improvement processes are our
greatest opportunity," says Rear Adm.
Hugh Blackwood, deputy commander,
Navy Region Southeast.
RIPs get people excited about LSS
because folks see things changing in a rela-
tively short period of time. Leaders should
build excitement by asking everyone in
the office, "What's one thing that bugs you
about your job/assignments/way things are
done?"
Asking enables involvement at all levels
in forming teams and implementing solu-
tions, not just standing on the sidelines or
in the shadows and saying "It's obvious it
(the problem) needs improvement but will
never happen here!"
For instance, in just about any organiza-
tion, if you asked a group of 10 people to
identify inefficient processes within their
area, at least three answers will recur. The
challenge is to get people excited at all lev-
els to think about solutions. Most people
don't get all excited about solutions from
above, but they do get excited about things
they help create themselves. Inspire them
to prioritize what they want to tackle first
and then get out of their way.
"My suggestion is to tackle the things

College offers

program here
From the Naval
War College
T he Naval War Col-
lege's (NWC) College
of Distance Education
is offering its Fleet Seminar
Program in the Jacksonville
area. This academic year
(September 2007 - May
2008), the Joint Maritime
Operations and Strategy
and Policy course will be
offered at NAS Jacksonville
and the National Security,
and Decision Making
course will be offered at NS
Mayport.
This highly acclaimed pro-
gram parallels, to a major
degree, the course of study
followed by students in the.
College of Naval Command
and Staff in Newport, R.I.
Three-hour classes are
held in the evening (one
night per week for approxi-
mately 34 weeks).
Each seminar is led by a
top adjunct faculty mem-
ber from the local area.
Students can earn a NWC
diploma, JPME Phase I
credit and up to 21 gradu-
ate credit hours. All books
and materials are pro-
vided on a loan basis and
there is no tuition charge.
Enrollment is open to USN/

that are easiest and in obvious need of
improvement" said Blackwood.
"Resist the notion that there's nothing
we can do about it - when in fact there
may be. Everything we do isn't covered in
an instruction. There is a very real possi-
bility, at every level in the organization, to
make sustainable changes."
So, if a group of 10 people can identify
two or three things to improve, LSS can
teach them simple tools (e.g., "value stream
mapping" to identify waste) to improve
existing processes or re-engineer a new
process.
Who knows how better to eliminate
waste than the people that witness it every
day and a trained "Green Belt"? If leader-
ship provides structure and focus to the
group, the knowledge and vision of team
members will create the solutions.
"You can't have a vision of the "to be"
state if you don't have a clear view of the
"as is" state," added Blackwood.
There is one more important point
regarding the tying together of RIPs with
other aspects of LSS, i.e. creating a syner-
gistic "pull". Leadership needs to recognize
the achievements along the way. The LSS
process will not survive if personnel are not
appreciated and rewarded for their efforts.
Sometimes all it takes is a handshake in
front of a group, or a hand written letter.
People remember these things because
someone went out of their way for them.
It's an investment in human resources
that instills pride in self and team. Navy
Region Southeast expects that everyone
will do his or her duty to recognize that
the Navy is committed to LSS -but above
and beyond this it is the job of every leader
and manager to create the environment in
which people like you and me want to be a
participant.

Bilingual Sailors wanted


NMCRS looking


for maritime civil affairs for volunteers


By MCCS(SW/AW) Dave Nagle
Navy Expeditionary Combat
Command Public Affairs

C J Umo podemos ayudarle?
Comment pouvons-nous vous
* aider? If you can read this,
then one of the Navy's newest com-
mands may have a job for you.
Maritime Civil Affairs Group
(MCAG), part of the Navy
Expeditionary Combat Command
(NECC), is looking for Sailors with
,foreign language proficiency to join
their organization.
MCAG and its two squadrons in
Yorktown, Va. and Imperial Beach,
Calif., plan and execute civil affairs
operations in the maritime environ-
ment. Maritime civil affairs teams
work directly with civil authorities
and civilian populations around
the world and may be involved in a
variety of missions from humanitar-
ian assistance and disaster relief to
regional engagement activities.
While Sailors in certain rates with
proficiency in any language are wel-
come, there is a particular need for
those with proficiency in Spanish,
Arabic and any of the Pacific Rim lan-
guages, such as Tagalog.
The rates MCAG needs include:
boatswain's mates; operations special-


ists; gunner's mates; electronics tech-
nicians; builders; construction electri-
cians; construction mechanics; equip-
ment operators; yeomen; personnel
specialists; quartermasters; corpsmen;
enginemen and machinist's mates.
Most of the squadron billets are sec-
ond class petty officers or higher.
ETCM(SW/AW/PJ) David Carter,
command master chief for Maritime
Civil Affairs Squadron 2 said that
language skills are important, but
Sailors interested" in orders to a mari-
time civil affairs position should also
be strong, mature performers.
"We're looking for self-starters who
can operate independently with excel-
lent communication skills who are
comfortable talking with people in any
setting," said Carter. "You should also
be able to multi-task, since MCAS
Sailors work in small teams and must
handle several jobs at once."
"You will be talking and working
with officials from non-government
organizations in a variety of coun-
tries, so you will truly be representing
the United States," said HMCS(SW/
AW) Marina LeTourneau, MCAG
command senior chief.
Sailors assigned to MCAG with
demonstrated foreign language pro-
ficiency can qualify for the foreign
language proficiency bonus (FLPB),


which is worth up to $500 a month.
Until recently, the FLPB was mainly
restricted to Navy professional lin-
guists such as the cryptologic techni-
cian interpretive rating and foreign
area officers. However, NAVADMIN
072/07 expands and extends the FLPB
to active and reserve component
Sailors assigned to NECC (includ-
ing individual augmentees); those in
expeditionary combat; as well as to
certain Sailors engaged in contingen-
cy situations.
Another bonus is that Sailors sta-
tioned with civil affairs squadrons
are eligible to earn the expeditionary
warfare qualification.
A tour at MCAG is considered shore
duty, while squadron-level tours are
classified as Type 2 sea duty. In fact,
maritime civil affairs teams have
already deployed to South America
in support of the Navy's Global Fleet
Station pilot. Another team is prepar-
ing to deploy in support of the Navy's
upcoming initiatives in the Gulf of
Guinea.
"We are truly doing some cutting-
edge stuff here," remarked Carter. "If
you're looking for something a little
different, yet challenging, then mari-
time civil affairs is the place to be."

By Jan Wiley
NMCRS Volunteer
Chances are good that you've heard retired
folks say, "I don't know how I ever had time
to work." It's true! Since my retirement cer-
emony in October 2005, I've been busy getting settled
in a new house in Jacksonville.
To get people to quit asking, "So Jan, what do you do
with all your spare time?" I decided to do something
worthwhile. So I stopped by the NAS Jax Navy and
Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) office to look
into volunteering. What a wonderful staff, and do
they ever need volunteers! Depending on how big the
office is, there might be one or two paid staff members
and lots of volunteers. Some of the small emergency
service offices have just one or two volunteers.
At NAS Jax. there is a director, office manager,
caseworkers, plus a number of volunteers. Many of
the volunteers are spouses of active duty personnel
and some are retired folks, like me. This creates a
constant turnover that needs replenishing. It's a won-
derful mix of friendly people, all striving to do good
things for local service personnel. There is a compre-
hensive training program, so volunteers feel comfort-
able before going "solo" on cases. And. volunteers
have the same authority and responsibility as regular
employees.
NMCRS provides a critical service to thousands
of Sailors and Marines, their families and survivors
every year in the form of loans, grants and budget
counseling. We also have visiting nurses who go to the
homes of new families to offer baby care lessons. Each
year. NMCRS assists more than 40.000 personnel,
providing interest-free loans of more than $26 million
and grants of more than $5 million for emergencies
and assistance in basic living expenses.
So. why volunteer? Why not! It's a chance to help
the young Sailors and Marines with budgets, and
provide guidance in many other related areas such as
entitlements. Thrift Savings Plan, car and credit card
loans and resources available on base.
With all of the extended deployments and individual
augmentee deployments, single Sailor and families
are finding themselves in financial crunches that
they didn't expect. What I've also found, is that lots
of retirees need help too. Many haven't really planned
ahead financially. Some never had a proper Veteran's
Administration (VA) exit physical and are asking
NMCRS for money when they should have VA disabil-
ity income, many have trouble holding a steady job,
etc.
So, if you're looking for a rewarding experience and
a chance to make a difference, please look into volun-
teering in your area. NMCRS works for me, because I
get to see the immediate, positive results of my efforts
every day and I like that! But. there are lots of good
organizations out there that need help - just do it!


From NAVFAC Southeast


Naval Facilities Engineering
Command (NAVFAC)
Southeast currently holds
,-one of the best safety records within
,NAVFAC and recently the Command
notified all employees and supported
commands that the word accident
will no longer be in their vocabulary.
"We pride ourselves on our con-
tinuing excellence in safety," said
NAVFAC Southeast Commanding
Officer Capt. Michael Blount. "Yet
we need to continue, to make positive
changes in dur safety program.
In reviewing the program, Blount
determined that the word accident
was misleading. "All accidents are


preventable, so let's remove that word
from our vocabulary and use mishap,"
proclaimed Blount.
NAVFAC Southeast has an exten-
sive safety program to ensure all
employees perform work in the safest
manner possible. "If everyone is prop-
erly trained and equipped to perform
their work and band together, they
will prevent the actions that lead to
mishaps," said NAVFAC Southeast
Command Safety and Health Manager
David Folk.
The entire team, all 1,500 civilian
employees and 150 military members,
proactively participates in the safety
program which makes "safety always"
the focal point of every task. They have
incorporated "safety always" as their


motto. "We are committed to ensure
every employee returns home each day
in the same condition as when they
arrive at work," said Blount.
NAVFAC Southeast has recently
reorganized and wants to make sure
this safety culture gets passed on to
the new employees that are coming on
board. "We have hundreds of vacan-
cies we are recruiting for and it is
important that we keep safety aware-
ness alive and well throughout the
command," said Blount.
Safety is a part of every employee's
responsibility. NAVFAC Southeast
employees must aggressively adhere
to and enforce safety policies in all of
their work areas and look after each
other.


TRICARE beneficiaries save time, money with new service 12007 SPORTS CHALLENGEI


From the TRICARE
Management Activity
Registering for the TRICARE
Mail Order Pharmacy (TMOP)
just got easier with the launch
of the new Member Choice Center
(MCC). A quick phone call or click
of a mouse, is all that's needed for
Service families and retirees to begin
receiving their prescriptions by mail.
By using this new service, not only
will the beneficiary obtain TMOP
enrollment assistance, but the MCC
will actually contact the physician to
Obtain new prescriptions and forward
:them to the TMOP for processing,
Making the switch from retail to mail

eficiary.
"We are always looking for ways
:to improve customer service and
:add value for TRICARE beneficia-
:ries," said Army Maj. Gen. Elder
'Granger, deputy director, TRICARE
,Management Activity. "They wanted
a more user-friendly program and the
MCC delivers."
Beneficiaries don't have to download
forms or wait to have forms mailed;
they can go to the "My Benefit" por-
tal on www.tricare.mil or to www.

plete the registration. There's also
the option to call the MCC at 1-877-
363-1433 to switch from the retail
program to TMOP.
When a beneficiary calls the MCC,
a patient care advocate from Express
Scripts Inc., TRICARE's pharmacy
benefit provider, explains the program
and offers to transfer the current pre-
scriptions to the safe and convenient
mail order option. If the beneficiary
agrees, Express Scripts Inc. submits
a prescription transfer request to the
patient's physician.
The mail order pharmacy can save
beneficiaries as much as 66 percent on
medications for conditions such as high
blood pressure, asthma or diabetes.
The beneficiary may receive up to a 90-
day supply of most medications for the
same amount they would pay for a 30-

day supply at a retail pharmacy.
The Department of Defense saves
money, too. The department pays 30
to 40 percent less for prescriptions
filled through the mail-order service
compared to retail pharmacies. The
department's savings could be sub-
stantial, $24 million a year, with just
a 1 percent shift of prescriptions from
retail to mail order.
"As with all health entitlements,
there are things our beneficiaries can
do to reduce costs. The military treat-
ment facility is the most cost-effective
option, but that's not always available
for some beneficiaries. Mail order is
the next best thing. Having prescrip-
tions filled by mail saves them time
and money. It also lowers the cost for
the entire military health system,"
said Granger.


As many as 3 million adults and children have type 1 diabetes.
They'll never outgrow it. But now through research and its
breakthrough results, we are moving research into reality.

Five tips when PCS moving


From LIFELines
Here are a few moving tips that might prove help-
ful to you and your family:
Prepare early - In order' to reduce stress that
can accompany a permanent change of station (PCS), it's
important not to wait until the last minute before prepar-
ing for your move, particularly if one has orders overseas
or during the summer months when most transfers take
place. As soon as you are in receipt of orders, contact your
transportation/shipping office and make an appointment
to meet with a relocation counselor who can advise and
assist you with your move.
Take house hunting leave if possible - While government
housing may be available at one's next duty station, the
need or option to rent or buy a home can best be handled
by utilizing house hunting leave that does not affect one's
annual leave. Some questions that need to be answered
early in this regard are: Are government quarters avail-
able that will meet your needs given the size of your fam-
ily and the amount of household goods you possess? If you
are interested in buying a home, are the demographics in
the area supportive of your needs (e.g., proximity of good
schools, commute distance to your work site, employment
opportunities for spouse, increasing real estate values,
etc.). If you plan on renting, before contacting a realty
company, have you visited the base housing office that


often provides a list of apartments, townhouses and homes
for rent according to areas and price ranges?
Discard useless items - Over the years we all acquire
items that we no longer use or need. Rather than hav-
ing them transported to our new duty station, it's best to
donate them to charity or hold a "yard sell." This is par-
ticularly important if one has orders overseas or is moving
into a home smaller than the one that is being vacated.
Packing and unpacking is hard enough without having
to waste time on unpacking junk that takes up space and
requires energy to store.
Inform family, friends and businesses of your new
address - The U.S. Postal Service provides various forms
that can help having one's mail forwarded either to a
interim address, or directly to one's new address. While
first class mail will be forwarded up to one year following
one's move, it's best to inform family, friends, utilities,
banks and credit card companies, magazine publications,
and others of one's new address as soon as one is resettled.
Preparing these notifications early can reduce the poten-
tial for bills not being paid or credit card interest being
assessed due to late payments.
Do not be preoccupied with your past duty station or
unrealized orders - Some couples and families arrive at
their new duty station and discover that there may not
be certain conveniences that were available at their prior
location where they may have had roomier quarters, bet-


Arlington National Cemetery honors those who serve America


From LIFELines
Since the Civil War,

The Center for Naval Leadership
(CNL) announced Aug. 26 that it
will likely pass 50,000 course com-
pletions this year for the three leadership
courses required to be advanced to E-6,
E-7 and E-8.
In achieving this milestone, Commanding
Officer Capt. Jack Webb stated CNL
reached an average of 4,000 comple-
tions for each of the 12 months since
last September. This increased capacity
enabled the Navy to reduce the number of
Sailors needing the course from 28,000 a
year ago to almost 9,000 today.
"No Sailor is in jeopardy of not advanc-
ing due to a lack of school quotas. There
are plenty of quotas available, scheduled
at very flexible times and locations," said
Webb.
CNL's Web site and Navy Knowledge
Online (NKO), through the Leadership por-
tal, lists courses on weekdays and week-
ends for active-duty and reserve Sailors,
providing maximum availability and flex-
ibility.
"There are openings every week, so no
one should have a problem getting into a
course they need for advancement," added
Webb.
For people who have very high opera-
tional tempos, a waiver may be granted
by their chain of command. Active-duty
and reserve Sailors assigned to units in
direct support of combat operations, and
those with other operational circumstances
where course completion is not possible,
are eligible for,waivers. See NAVADMIN
339/06 for more information.
"Commanders and master chiefs have
been very successful at getting their Sailors
.to the courses; the attendance and through-
:put of over 50,000 in this year alone dem-


onstrate leadership's commitment'- I con-
gratulate everyone," said Chief of Naval
Personnel Vice Adm. John Harvey. "We
will always have Sailors advancing though,
so the next school is right around the cor-
ner - we need to keep up the press."

that they were sent to a particular place instead of a com-
mand that was at the top of their "dreamsheet." In so
far as happiness stems from an appreciation of who we
are and what we have received; whereas, unhappiness
derives from a preoccupation with who we are not or what
we have not received; people are a lot happier who come
to appreciate what their new duty station has to offer.
Think positive, explore your new surroundings, make new
friends, and your new tour of duty might end up being the
best one of your entire career.

Hurricane season: Be prepared FFSC offers educational


As critical as

fully charged

batteries
From LIFELines
Home is where most
people feel safe and
comfortable. But
sometimes say, when a
hurricane, flood, tornado,
wildfire, or other disaster
strikes, it's safest to pack
up and go to another loca-
tion.
The Federal Trade
Commission (FTC), the
nation's consumer pro-
tection agency, says that
when it comes to preparing
for situations like weath-
er emergencies, financial
readiness is as important
as a flashlight with fully
charged batteries.
Leaving your home can
be stressful, but knowing
that your financial docu-
ments are up-to-date, in
one place, and portable can
make-a big difference at a
tense time.
Here are some tips from
the FTC for financial readi-
ness in case of an emergen-
cy:
* Conduct a household
inventory. Make a list of
your possessions and doc-
ument it with photos or a
video. This could help if you
are filing insurance claims.
Keep one copy of your
inventory in your home on a
shelf in a lockable, fireproof
file box; keep another in a
safe deposit box or another
secure location.
* Buy a lockable, fireproof
file box. Place important
documents in the box; keep
the box in a secure, acces-
sible location on a shelf in
your home so that you can
"grab it and go" if the need
arises.

tant financial and family
records - or notes about
where they are - includ-
ing deeds, titles, wills,
birth and marriage cer-
tificates, passports, and
relevant employee benefit

Except for wills, keep
originals in a safe depos-
it box or some other loca-
tion. If you have a will, ask
your attorney to keep the
original document.
4a list of phone numbers
or email addresses of your
creditors, financial institu-
tions, landlords, and utility
companies (sewer, water,
gas, electric, telephone,
cable)

POPE: Hospital chaplain meets Holy Father


From Page 1

the staff and ministering to their
spiritual and pastoral needs daily.
He also offers individual counseling
and officiates mass, etc. He plans to
keep up a busy pace until he fulfills
his military obligation and beyond. "A
priest never retires, he just keeps on
performing his priestly duties to the
extent he is able until he dies," said
D'Souza. "What keeps me going is my
commitment to my responsibilities as
a priest and to minister to the people
entrusted to my spiritual and pastoral
care."
His obligated service will be
extended as per indications from his
Chaplain Corps detailers and he will
soon be returning to one of his prior
duty stations, National Naval Medical
Center, Bethesda, Md. He said that
will keep him in the military for two
to three more years than he origi-
nally thought, Following retirement,
D'Souza said he hopes to enter an
assisted living facility either in the
U.S. or in India.
D'Souza is from a family of 13 chil-
dren, including eight brothers and
four sisters. The devoutly Catholic
family lived in the Karnataka state,
in the South Eastern part of India.
Catholicism was first introduced
there more than 500 years 'ago by
Portuguese missionaries headed by
St. Francis Xavier. D'Souza noted that
the saint's body is uncorrupt for that
long and is still available for viewing


in Goa, India.
The D'Souza family was known at
the time by the name Mudartha, prior
to their conversion to Catholicism
from Hinduism. Many Mudartha's
still live in the region and go by the
name 'Mudartha.'
Besides his four brothers, two
of his sisters also entered the ser-
vice of the church. They joined the
Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod,
founded in Chavanod, France. The
order later crossed the border into
Switzerland. From their home in
Genoa, Switzerland, the order has
ministries in 14 countries around the
world including India and the U.S.
D'Souza's sister, Eugene, was recent-
ly elected the new superior general of
the order and has moved to the gen-
eralate in Genoa. Another D'Souza
sister, Lucy, also a sister with the
order, died 15 years ago.
Although meeting the pope and
seeing his brother elevated to such
a lofty height was exciting, D'Souza
said he also enjoyed the opportunity
to travel with his brothers. Their trip
included a warm and hospitable visit
to the Capucine Fathers' Provincial
House in Bologna, Italy. Priests from
that order had manned the diocese of
Lucknow, India, from where Albert
was transferred to the Archdiocese
of Agra as its archbishop. Albert was
one of the priests who had worked
under the Capucine priests and bish-
ops in Lucknow prior to his appoint-


ment as a bishop of Lucknow. That
position was held by one of the found-
er members of that religious order
from Bologna, Italy.
All of D'Souza sisters and broth-
ers are involved with goodwill proj-'
ects. Through his military income,
D'Souza is the primary benefactor of
the Mukartha Home for the Elderly
back in India while his sister's order
oversees the facility as part of their
mission. It is located about 700 miles
south of Bombay on a 10-acre plan-
tation. It boasts a new building and
is capable of housing 40-60 resi-
dents. The plantation is planted with
banana trees, papayas and various
palms which bear fruit year round.
The harvesting of these plants helps
supplement the facility's funds.
D'Souza said he is proud of his fam-
ily as they serve God and their fellow
men and women. He said, "They do
God's work around the globe."
The care and concern exemplified
by D'Souza and all of the hospital's
Pastoral Care Department is just one
more facet of the commitment to ser-
vice that Naval Hospital Jacksonville
patients can count on when they come
to the facility for care.
* The pallium is, a liturgical vestment
symbolizing the authority of a metropol-
itan archbishop. A white woolen strip
decorated by six black crosses, it is worn
across the shoulders, outside the cha-
suble. It is worn only by the Pope and
Archbishops, and the use of this is only
at formal liturgical celebrations.


DENTAL: Good diet, flossing, brushing skills safeguard health


this non-covered service. Coffey
described Alexander as a phenome-
nal dentist. "You could say she is my
hero. Her efforts helped my son and
her efforts are now helping all military
families who have a child with a special
need," he remarked. "She had been try-
ing for sometime to push the informa-
tion up to senior Navy medicine lead-
ership to make sure this would be a
covered benefit. She was very patient,
very diligent. She was an advocate for
our military families. Johnathan has
got a beautiful smile and we owe that
smile to Capt. Alexander."
Alexander stressed that while the
general anesthesia covered in this
new benefit makes dental procedures
less stressful for children, parents
must also remember that avoiding
the necessity for such dental proce-
dures is the best way to safeguard
their children's health.
She said, "It's a matter of good diet,
and good brushing and flossing skills
to prevent these problems. This is
especially important as other diseas-

es, such as heart disease, are being
associated with bacteria and other


complications of-bad dental hygiene."
She also explained that combating
tooth decay includes what your chil-
dren eat and drink.
For-instance, one can of Coke con-
tains 9.5 teaspoons of sugar and most
parents don't realize that. Alexander
said parents often tell her their child
just won't drink water. She suggest-
ed, "If water is all they're offered to
drink, then they'll drink it!"
The TRICARE release echoed the
importance of. prevention. Children
should start seeing a dentist by the
time their first tooth appears or by
their first birthday. Decay is the sin-
gle most common chronic childhood
dental disease - and it's completely
preventable according to. TRICARE.
Alexander has dedicated her life
to helping children by lobbying for
dental legislation and promoting a
lifetime of good dental habits.
She serves as Naval Hospital
Jacksonville's Assistance Dental
Department head, the associate direc-
tor for Branch Health/Clinic and the
associate director for Dental Services.

Diploma mills: What are they,


and how can they be avoided?


By Judy James
Director of Academic Support
and Jim ]urewicz
Director of Academics, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide
Imagine this! You go to college for almost two years and
earn 45 credit hours. Now you are ready to transfer
to a four-year degree program, but discover to your
dismay and later anger that none of the work you did
over the last two years is acceptable as transfer credit to
the four-year college. You tell yourself this can't be hap-
pening; your last two years of hard work must count for
something, right? Unfortunately, what you didn't know
was that the college you attended lacked the proper cre-
dentials and accreditation recognized by most colleges.
Consequently your only choice is to take all the classes
over again before you can transfer into the four-year col-
lege. You say this can't happen? Well it did happen to a
very bright student we know and after doing two years of
make-up work she is now pursuing her nursing degree. So
what does this have to do with me you ask?
According to John Bear, author of Bear's Guide to
Earning Degrees by Distance Learning, diploma mills are
big business, approximately earning $500 million annually
through more than 400 diploma mills and 300 bogus Web
sites. And we can only expect that this trend will continue
to grow over the upcoming years.
What exactly is a diploma mill? Webster's Third New
International Dictionary defines a diploma mill as: "An
institution of higher education operating without supervi-
sion of a state or professional agency and granting diplomas
which are either fraudulent or because of the lack of proper
standards worthless". Diploma mills have existed since the
early 1920s.The truth is diploma mills are more interested
in taking your money than providing you with a quality
education.
Obtaining a degree while in the military, either active
duty or reserves or being the spouse of a military member
can be a challenge because of the frequent deployments and
permanent moves. The good news is that there are plenty
of legitimate colleges and universities that are military-
friendly. Some extra time taken to plan your education
will prevent a nightmare when you complete your degree.
All that is required is for you to ask a few questions before
signing up for a course.
There are several factors to consider when selecting an
academically sound university. First and foremost, you
should ask if the college is regionally accredited. Most
diploma mills will have a long list of accrediting agencies
that sounds impressive. However, just by asking a few
questions you discover that these agencies aren't regionally
accredited, nor are their courses accepted for credit by the
Council for Higher Education Accreditation (http://www.
chea.org). Another technique diploma mills use to validate
degree programs is to imply in their literature and Web
sites that they are sanctioned by state registration and
licensing. Don't fall for this trick. National accreditation is
not the same as regional accreditation as the latter requires
universities and colleges to meet stringent requirements on
the quality of academic programs and the faculty who teach


for them. Finally, two last ruses diploma mills employ
are using similar university names i.e., the real LaSalle
University in Pennsylvania isn't the same or associated
with LaSalle University in Louisiana, and use of a .edu
Internet address (this does not make it an accredited uni-
versity.)
The Better Business Bureau Web site (http://www.bbb.
org) lists several red flags to watch for when considering
a school. First, since almost all degrees require either 60
credit hours for an associates and 120 hours for a bachelor's
degree, it is almost impossible to finish a degree in a few
months, or even two years in the case of a bachelor's degree
unless you are transferring in a significant amount of credit
from another school or from your military training. Another
flag to watch for is tuition. Is the school's tuition paid on a
per-degree basis and/or does it give discounts for enrolling
in multiple degree programs? Most accredited institutions
fees are based on credit hours, course or semester.
What's in a name? Watch out for colleges and universi-
ties that use names that are similar to reputable universi-
ties and promise a degree in exchange for a lump some of
money. And finally our personal favorite, watch out for
schools that have little or no interaction with professors,
require little academic work or assignments and do not
require tests in any of their courses.
Fortunately for our military we have education cen-
ters with trained staff to guide you through this process.
You also have several on-base universities and colleges
that offer a variety of degree programs, accept College
Level Placement Exams and award American Council on
Education credit for your military experience. These schools
are regionally accredited, offer quality academic programs,
and most are military-friendly because they understand the
sacrifices your duty requires.
Here's a bit of advice. You are going to college to learn
and become a more educated person. Do not look at getting
your degree as "square filling." You may be getting that
box checked by possessing a degree, but businesses and
employers in the civilian sector are well aware of diploma
mills and the "easy" colleges and will take that into consid-
eration when reviewing your job application, it could be the
tie-breaker!
Taking the easy way to a college degree is not always the
smartest or best way. Employers (including military super-
visors) expect you to demonstrate the academic knowledge
and skills that accompany a college degree. So before you
submit an application or begin pursuing your education,
think about quality instead of speed; doing a little front-end
research could save embarrassment and disappointment on
the back end.

Sailor's Creed: What

does it really mean?

By FLTCM(SW/AW) Tom Howard
Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet
Iam a United States Sailor. I will sup-
port and defend the Constitution of the
United States of America and I will
obey the orders of those appointed over me.
I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy and
those who have gone before me to defend free-
dom and democracy around the world.
I proudly serve
my country's Navy
combat team with
Honor, Courage
and Commitment.
I am committed to
excellence and the
fair treatment of all.
Aloha, shipmates!
As you may imagine
by now, we're going to
talk about the Sailor's
Creed this week,
continuing a series
of articles on pride
and professionalism
in our Navy today.
Before we jump into
the article, however, FLTCM(SW/AW) Tom Howard
please take a moment
and reread the Sailor's Creed available above. This
time, really pay attention to the words and the mean-
ing behind this passage.
This Sailor's Creed is not just a bunch of words
thrown together that your chain of command requires
you to recite at quarters, selection boards, awards
quarters, or all-hands calls (although all of the above
should be done). These words symbolize the Sailors of
our past, the Sailors of today, and the Sailors who will
lead our Navy into the future. These words should
symbolize your commitment to the Navy and who you
are as a Sailor.
In 1993, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Frank
Kelso directed and personally participated with a
recruit training panel to create a creed for all blue-
jackets. Every recruit was given a copy of the final
product and was tasked to commit it to memory. The
mission was unity and spirit de corps. A year later,
the new Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Jeremy
Boorda, tweaked the passage, replacing the word
"bluejacket" with *Navy," to best describe all Sailors.
Another change in 1997 called for the replacement of
"my superiors" to "those appointed over me."
Today, the Sailor's Creed is recited by all Sailors, no
matter what profession in the Navy they have chosen,

TRICARE fuels option to

'Stay Navy' as a Reservist

From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs
Adding a major incentive to the smorgasbord
1of reserve benefits, Navy Selected Reservists
(SelRes) will be able to enroll in an improved
TRICARE service beginning Oct. 1.
Under the new system, drilling reservists will pay
$81 a month for self-only coverage, or $251 a month
for self and family coverage. This replaces the complex
qualification rules previously in place for Reservists
receiving TRICARE coverage. With the new rule, the
only requirement is being in SelRes, meaning the
Sailor drills one weekend each month.
"The new plan is designed to simplify the current
TRICARE Reserve Select benefit and make it avail-
able to more reserve-component members and their
families," said Army Maj. Gen. Elder Granger, deputy
director of the TRICARE Management Activity.
"Participation won't be automatic for 11,000-plus
reserve Sailors currently enrolled in the TRICARE
Reserve Select program. They'll be disenrolled when
that program expires Sept. 30 and must sign up for the
new plan to maintain coverage," Granger explained.
For those leaving active duty and affiliating with
the drilling reserve, the TRICARE Web site at www.
TRICARE.mil, offers details and tells how to sign up.
Go to the "My Benefit" link, then to the Guard and,
Reserve portal.
"Incentives for joining the Navy Reserve team
include a lot more than health benefits," said Navy
Recruiting Command Active-to-Reserve Transition
Coordinator Randy Miller.
"The Navy Reserve offers a two-year deferment
from involuntary mobilization to Sailors who join
the Reserve component within six months of leaving
active duty," said Miller. Those who join seven-to-12
months after leaving active duty are eligible for a one-
year deferment. According to NAVADMIN 007/07,
the deferment dates start the day the Sailor joins the
Navy Reserve, regardless of previous active duty obli-
gations or deployment schedule.
"Navy experience is something you carry with you,"
Miller said. "Sailors can hold on to the rewarding ben-
efits of Navy service, while enjoying the advantages of
life in the outside world. There's no better time to pick
up where active duty leaves off because the perks are
improving."
"One of the biggest attractions is extra income.
Sailors can earn a potential affiliation bonus if they
join in a critical rating. On drill weekends, Sailors
earn four days of pay for only two days work, and they
get paid for two weeks of annual training in locations
at home or abroad," Miller said. "Sometimes reserv-
ists can do more than two weeks. Some other benefits
include: low-cost life insurance up to $400,000 through
Serviceman's Group Life Insurance, Montgomery GI
Bill, and points towards retirement pay with each
drill."
"Add to that tax-free commissary and exchange priv-
ileges, access to a wide range of recreational opportu-
nities, and eventually, a military retirement check,
any way you look at it, fringe benefits like these are
hard to find in the civilian sector," Miller said.
For more information about TRICARE, visit www.
TRICARE.mil. For more information about the Navy
Reserve. visit www.navyreserve.com.

Jacksonville Jaguars tickets on sale at the USO


From the USO

It's that time again! The Greater
Jacksonville Area USO has
released the new rules and sale
schedule regarding the sale of USO
Jaguars tickets. You may pick up one
of the brochures at the NAS Jax or
Mayport office. You may also find
the brochure on our Web site, www.
usojax.org, to download, print and
fold for easy reference.
Since the Jacksonville Jaguar inau-
gural season, the Greater Jacksonville
Area USO has sold Jaguars tickets
to each home game at minimal cost.
The Jacksonville Jaguars generosity
is not duplicated by any other NFL
team. The tickets are for the express
purpose of providing active duty mili-
tary personnel and their families the
ability to enjoy an NFL game at a
reasonable price.
This year, the USO is broadening
the ability for commands to purchase
bulk tickets for command-sponsored
events. Last year, commands were
only authorized to request 25 tickets
to individual games.
This year, there is no restriction
on the number of tickets a command
may request. Specific details on the
method of requesting command spon-
sored tickets are included in the
ticket sale guideline brochure locat-

Additionally, the USO is lifting the
restriction imposed last year which
did not allow single military person-

The USO asks for everyone's sup-
port to ensure tickets are not resold to
ineligible individuals. This is a good
program and a great opportunity for
those currently serving in uniform
and their families.
Uniforms are not required for
admittance. Retired military person-

What does my daddy do?


Military parents


in the workplace

From LIFELines
From a kid's point of view, the job of a parent in
the military may be a little fuzzy. Explaining
to your children what you do, especially during
deployments or underway periods, helps their under-
standing and shortens the distance between you.
Parents with potentially dangerous occupations
have the burden of easing fears when describing to
their kids what they do for a living. Despite the fact
that the majority of the military is not imminently in
harm's way, added sensitivity is the plan of the day.
Varying age groups and individual circumstances dic-
tate a variety of responses. The National Association
of School Psychologists gives this advice to parents:
Filter known facts one by one and do not prepare chil-
dren (especially military children) for the worst. Basic
information about your job or rate should be sufficient.
Reading a bedtime story from your rate training man-
ual takes it a little overboard.
According to Kids & Careers, children believe that
mermaids are as real as car crashes and that dangers
can be common. It is not until approximately age 10
or 11 that children begin to understand which events
are real. Fear for their parents being in danger can be
managed by explaining that daddy or mommy is high-
ly trained and practices routinely for the emergency
situations children might be seeing on television.
According to Liz Hengerer from the Norfolk Fleet
a�id Family Support Center, children also hear from
their friends what supposedly goes on during deploy-
ments and at work, and they can often be a source of
misinformation. If your child comes home reporting.
'"The other kids say dad's gonna get 13 tattoos, fall
overboard, and get eaten by a shark," parents must
correct the information. Explain thats-other kids don't
know what is going to happen and Dad is not going to
get eaten by a shark.
Infants and toddlers have an undeveloped sense of
time and limited visual memory. Showing pictures of
daddy, in uniform and in civvies, keeps his image at
hand and refreshes young memories. Bring his name
into conversations by saying, "Let's sing The Barney
song. It's daddy's favorite!" or "Let's mail daddy a care
package."
If possible, bring school age children into the work-
space. If you can't get permission, show your kids a
similar place or a picture of yourself at work. Tell
children simple stories about what happened at work
or explain what you did that day, just like you expect
them to tell you about their day. Long distance dads
can send frequent e-mails, ask specific questions when
calling by phone, or mail surprises via snail mail.
Honest, clear, and specific information works best
with pre-adolescents and teenagers. This age group
knows everything anyway and is highly capable of
filtering information. They still need reassurance, a
sense of safety, and a parent who's there when they're
ready to talk. Frequent e-mails, video conferencing,
and instant messaging can be your best connection,
away or at home.
For more suggestions, try Fathering Teenagers
which includes tips such as "Open Your Belly." (You*1'
have to read that one for yourself.) Teens will let you
know how much they want. to experience. Don't be
surprised or offended to find a conscientious objector to
your occupation in the household. That's part of what
all teens go through in discovering their own identities.
Children of all ages can track a working military
parents progress on globes or with pictures or cal-
endars. Participate in Bring Your Parent to School
Day, no matter how embarrassing your child claims
this is. Participate in the widely popular Bring Your
Daughter to Work Day. First-hand experience is a
valuable tool for understanding a military parent's
role in the everyday work place.



Volunteers needed for


Safe Harbor Program

From the Fleet and Family Support Center

"any Sailors have become severely injured during
the war on terrorism and are receiving compre-
hensive and continuous care beginning in the
battlefield through a military treatment facility and ulti-
mately by the Veteran's Administration.
Although these facilities do what they can to assist these
Sailors and their families, there are gaps in non-medical
treatment within the process. This is particularly true when
Sailors are medically retired and return to their hometown.
*Many if these Sailors could use future help, advice and
assistance. To meet the needs of our severely injured war-
riors, the Navy is initiating the Safe Harbor Program.
The Safe Harbor Program is designed to focus on the non-
medical aspects of treatment for severely injured Sailors
and their families as they migrate through the various
processes of treatment, recuperation, convalescent leave,
etc. They need assistance with matters involving their pay,
taking advancement exams, filing claims for insurance, etc.
The Safe Harbor Program will provide the case manage-
ment oversight to make sure each and every Sailor receives
the care and support they need and deserve.
If interested in helping with this new program, call the
Retired Affairs Office at 542-2766, Ext.126 or stop by the
Fleet and Family Support Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Monday through Friday.

Personal Finance 101: Saving money befoi


From LIFELines
College applications
are in, and students
around the country
are excited about starting a
new chapter of their lives.
But even with a univer-
sity destination determined,
one question remains unan-
swered for many young
scholars: How am I going to
pay for all this?
According to the College
Board, the average yearly
cost for a public college is
$5,836, and the cost for a
private college is more than
$22,000. So when you're
planning your educational
future, it's a good idea to
create a clear financial plan
before you ever set foot on
campus.
Here are some smart tips
to get your financial house
in order before you head off
to college:
* Make a plan and stick
to it. Draft a budget well
in advance of enrolling -in
school. Also, consider con-
tacting your bank to auto-
matically set aside funds
into a separate savings
account designated for col-
lege expenses. With the fluc-
tuating costs of books and
living expenses, it's smart to
have a little money tucked
away for a rainy day.

* Research financial aid.
During your senior year of
high school, research finan-
cial aid options and mail
your applications early.
Sites like finaid.org (http://
www.finaid.org) can help
students determine the pro-
grams they may be eligible
for.
* Look into corporate
scholarships (http://www.
financialaidinfo.org/
CorporateScholarships.Asp.)
Scholarships are offered by
many large companies, so
do your homework.
Mercedes-Benz USA,
for instance, has offered a
scholarship program called
Drive Your Future, which
has awarded more than $3.5
million in scholarships since
the program launched four
years ago.
The scholarships are given
to students who are the first
in their families to attend
college. In 2007 alone, 62
high school seniors will be
awarded $10,000 scholar-
ships.
Once your financial plans
are prepared, the battle isn't
over yet. Keep these tips in
mind for staying on track
during college:
* Get a prepaid credit
card. Prepaid cards help
ensure that you won't over-
spend your budget, simply

Sulking in silence or ignoring a
problem is no better than blowing up.
Your body is still producing harm-
ful adrenaline and the problem will
not magically go away. Unexpressed
anger can lead to physical ailments,
such as ulcers and migraine head-
aches.
Maybe someone around you cannot
manage his or her anger. When deal-
ing with a hot head, be sure to keep
your cool. Don't make the situation
worse by answering anger with anger.
Try being a good listener or using a
little humor. Encourage a hot head
to talk privately about the situation.
A private setting may allow some-
one with a big ego more room to back
down and save face.
If someone is clearly out .of control
or approaching violence, get help.
Don't take chances with your own

New-spouse information packet needed


By Beth Wiruth
Special Contributor

I have an idea. The prob-
lem with my idea is I do
not know who or where
to submit my idea. I think
every new military spouse
should receive a 'Welcome
to the Military" packet spe-
cific to their branch of the
service.
I've even thought about
how this could practically
happen. When a service
member marries they add
the spouse to their official
record (that is how the
increased BAH is gener-
ated). We live in the tech-
nology age. Wouldn't it be
great if once that addition
is made to the service mem-
ber's official record that a
packet of information is
generated and sent to the
new spouse?
OK, if that wouldn't work
perhaps there is another
venue. Every new spouse is
to be given an ID card. What


if, as a part of the ID pro-
curement process, the spouse
and service member were
given a 15-30 minute orien-
tation and new spouse infor-
mation packet prior to the
photo ID being generated?
You may think I am a
bit crazy on this idea but


please hear me out. I host a
monthly dessert and coffee
for spouses in my home. We
talk about many things but
there has been a constant
theme among new spouses.
They need real information.
They need answers, direc-
tion, and reliable informa-


tion to guide them through
those first days of military
life.
While our service member
is to be our primary source
of information it is clear
that some service members
are better at this than oth-
ers. Tami's husband, an E3,


SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


told her that she could not
speak with officer wives
or senior enlisted wives.
Renee's husband told her
that his command receives
a report of all spouses
attending financial class-
es at the Fleet and Family
Support Center. Char's hus-
band told her that spouses
can only drive on bade to
the commissary and Navy
Exchange. Tabitha's hus-
band didn't think she was
permitted to use the fit-
ness center on base. Anita
couldn't understand why
people on base stopped
(colors) and turned around
(to face the flag) at various
times.
Misinformation is only
one reason to develop a
"Spouse 101 Package."
There are many resources
and opportunities for spous-
es that many active duty
and reserve service mem-
bers may have forgotten
or are currently unaware


Sailors reminded to update records regularly


By Lt. Robert Johnson
* Navy Personnel Command
Communications Office


N avy Personnel
Command (NPC) is
reminding Sailors to
review their records before
selection boards, using
NPC's Early Warning
System that can rescue a
promotion opportunity.
The early warning sys-
tem can be used one week
before the selection board's
convening date. However,
Sailors should be review-
ing their records at least six
months prior to this date.
Board recorders will
arrive to review the records
of promotion-eligible Sailors
one week before the selec-
tion board convenes. It's
not the responsibility of
the recorders to interpret
records; they only verify
continuity and complete-
ness of records. Missing
officer and enlisted evalu-
ations will be noted at
https://www.npc.navy.mil/
Apps/SB_Discrepancy_list/.
During this timeframe, a
member may visit the site
and enter his or her social
security number to see if a
record discrepancy is noted.
Discrepancies will be dis-
played along with a note
giving the definition and
guidance on submitting cor-
rections. The service mem-
ber is then responsible for
quickly correcting these
errors.
While the online discrep-
ancy check is a good last-
minute insurance against
missing items, a compre-
hensive record scrub six
months in advance is essen-
tial.
"Besides being listed
in instructions, it is good
career management to
maintain one's record,"
said Cmdr. Steve Lepp,
director of Officer Career
Progression, Pers-480.
"With the web-based tools
it is much easier to moni-
tor and correct your record
than it was in the old days
of microfiche.. No one has
more interest in your career
than you do."
Six months out, the ser-
vice member should visit
the BUPERS OnLine (BOL)
Web site and order their
official military personnel
file. Next, the performance

checking records six months
out service members should
submit corrections, to
PERS-312. For the mailing
address visit http://www.
npc.navy.mil/CareerInfo/
RecordsManagement/.
If a selection board is
about to convene service
members must send miss-
ing information via letter
to the board president.
Your letter should be sent
by mail or fax to the NPC
Customer Service Center.
This information must be
received at least one day
prior to the starting date of
the board.
No one other than individ-
uals being considered may
submit information direct-
ly to a board. Information
sent to the board will only
be used during the board
and will not be changed in
your permanent record.
Officers and enlisted
members who served as
individual augmentees
(IA) should ensure their
official records reflect this
service. NavAdmin 273/06
and NavAdmin 300/06 give
information on advance-
ment points, Navy enlisted
classifications and addi-
tional qualification designa-
tions given for IA service.
"Boards are giving addi-
tional consideration for
personnel who serve on IA
missions in support of the
global war on terrorism, so
it is very important that
eligible members make
sure the board knows about
their accomplishments by
their records," said Lepp.
Officers and enlisted
members are strongly
encouraged to call the NPC
Customer Service Center at
1-866-U ASK NPC (1-866-
827-5672) or DSN 882-5672
to confirm receipt of their
package for statutory pro-
motion selection boards.

of their existence. I polled
25 Sailors outside my local
exchange to ask a few quick
questions.
These are but a few basic
questions. There are more
important questions to
be asked but this was an
unscientific, quick look at
the subject.
Solid information and
education is crucial for mil-
itary spouses to enhance
their quality of life in the
midst of deployments and
relocations. Knowing pro-
cedures, policies, definition
of terms, customs as well
as resources, benefits and
opportunities will only sup-
port family readiness and
mission readiness.
So where is that sugges-
tion box?
