NAS Jax supports domestic violence prevention
By MC2 (AW/NAC) Kaitlyn Patterson
The NAS Jacksonville communi-
ty kicked off Domestic Violence
Awareness Month with a rally
Oct. 1 at the base theater.
"October is Domestic Violence
Awareness Month, and we put
on these events during this month
to bring awareness about domestic
violence to the service members and
their families on this base," said NAS
Jax Fleet and Family Support Center
Victim Advocate Amy Sulzmann.
"We were supposed to have the kick-
off with a walk and rally today but
because of the rain, the walk was can-
celled, but the rally went very well."
The rally began with NAS Jax
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack
Scorby Jr. signing the Domestic'
Violence Prevention Proclamation,
designating October as Domestic
Violence Awareness Month aboard
NAS Jacksonville. "No other service
requires the family separation that
the Navy must endure. Unfortunately,
that often leads to a lot of stress that
is taken out on the family. Don't mis-
treat your family. At the end of the
day, when all the dust settles, they're
still going to be there and we need to
take care of them so they'll take care
of us," Scorby said.
"The events of this month are
intended to stress the importance of
command and community involve-
ment in ensuring the victim's safety
and offender accountability as well.
Everyone needs to be more involved in
the movement to eliminate domestic

"This month is a really important
one because it's when we focus our
attention on raising awareness to the
general public of what is happening
with domestic violence in our com-
munity. The coordinated community
response is key to ending domestic
violence," she said. "People need to
know that no matter where they are,
or who they are, that the crime of
domestic violence will be treated the

The United States Navy celebrates its 232nd
birthday Saturday. The United States Navy
was originated Oct. 13, 1775, during a meet-
ing in Philadelphia; when the Continental Congress
voted to outfit two sailing vessels, armed with 10 car-
riage guns, swivel guns, and crews of 80.
These two vessels were deployed on a cruise of three
months to intercept transports carrying munitions and
stores to the British army in America. This was the
original legislation out of which the Continental Navy
grew and as such, constitutes the birth certificate of
the U.S. Navy.
To understand the
significance of the
decision to send
two armed ves-
sels to sea under M
the authority of
the strategic situa-
tion in which it was
made and consider
the political struggle
that lay behind it.
Americans first took up arms
in the spring of 1775 not to sever their relationship
with the king, but to defend their rights within the
British Empire. By the fall of 1775, the British North
American colonies from Maine to Georgia were in open
rebellion. Royal governments had been thrust out of
many colonial capitals and revolutionary governments
put in their places. The Continental Congress had
assumed some of the responsibilities of a central gov-
ernment for the colonies, created a Continental Army,
issued paper money for the support of the troops and
formed a committee to negotiate with foreign coun-
tries. Continental forces captured Fort Ticonderoga on
Lake Champlain and launched an invasion of Canada.
In October 1775, the British held superiority at sea,
from which they threatened to stop the colonies' trade
and to wreak destruction on seaside settlements. In
response, a few of the states had commissioned small
fleets of their own for defense of local waters. Congress
had not yet authorized privateering.
A small group of men in Congress had been advo-
cating a Continental Navy from the outset of armed
hostilities. Foremost among these men was John
Adams of Massachusetts. For months, he and a few
others had been arguing for the establishment of an
American fleet. Adams and his followers argued that
a fleet would defend the seacoast towns, protect vital
trade, retaliate against British raiders, and make
it possible to seek out among neutral nations of the
world, the arms and stores that would make resis-
Still, the establishment of a Navy seemed too bold
a move for some of the timid men in Congress. Some
southerners agreed that a fleet would protect and
secure the trade of New England but denied that it
would help the southern colonies. Most of the del-
egates did not consider the break with England as
final and feared that a Navy implied sovereignty and
independence. The most the pro-Navy men could do
was get Congress to urge each colony to outfit armed
vessels for the protection of their coasts and harbors.
On Oct. 3, 1775, Rhode Island's delegates laid before
Congress a bold resolution for the building and equip-
ping of an American fleet, as soon as possible. When
the motion came to the floor for debate, Samuel Chase,
of Maryland, attacked it, saying it was "the maddest
idea in the world to think of building an American
fleet." Even pro-Navy members found the proposal too
vague. It lacked specifies and no one could tell how
much it would cost.
On Oct. 5, 1775, Congress received intelligence of
two English brigs, unarmed and without convoy, laden
with munitions, leaving England bound for Quebec.
Congress immediately appointed a committee to con-
sider how to take advantage of this opportunity. Its
members were all New Englanders and all ardent
supporters of a Navy. They recommended first that

Looking back in time...
ON THE HOMEFRONT
Stroller netting and inflatable sleds:
some things parents don't really need
By Sarah Smiley
Being a seasoned mother of
young children teaches you
things. Most of these things are
in direct opposition to what many cat-
alogs selling toys and baby gear would
have you believe.
For instance, a recent perusal of the
various catalogs that arrived in my
mailbox yesterday, a stack that stands
Taller than a small dog, shows me that
,'.some people would like me to think
I-that my 9-month-old son, Lindell's
happy childhood memories are at
*stake if his bottom is not cleaned with

'pacifier will make him sick if it isn't

-sive), non-toxic cleaner. They would
alsoo like me to believe that toddlers
-'need a leash to go out in public.
; Six years ago, when my son, Ford
,was a baby, I fell victim to these
.ploys. I am embarrassed to admit
that I spent an inordinate amount of
.'"time researching strollers, finally set-
tling on one so expensive, excessive,
%,and unnecessary that my husband,
Dustin, being the safety conscious
military pilot that he is, asked, "Does
it come with airbags?"
Me: "Do you think strollers need
them? The catalog didn't show any
.with airbags. Maybe I should look
Dustin: "No, but at that price, it bet-
-ter come with something."
Two kids later, I've learned that
not only are airbags unnecessary on
strollers, so are most other things,
including padding. Lindell's favorite
ride is a cheap umbrella stroller that
he sits in as he is lounging in a ham-
Here is a list of other superfluous
items I found in yesterday's collection

There is zero chance that a child
on one of these sleds will enjoy any of
childhood's simple pleasures, such as
going headfirst off the wooden Radio
Flyer and straight into a pile of snow.
It's snow! I can't think of anything
else that provides a safer landing,
except for maybe a pile of bubble

any for sale in my catalogs, i

This is actually a very good idea
and a great safety item. After three

Wireless child locator
This friendly looking bear clips to
your child's shoe and the receiver
stays with you (by they way, your tod-
dler should, too). At the push of a but-
ton, a "high-decibel beep" alerts you
to your child's location, up to 150 feet
away, "even through concrete walls."
There is an easier and less expen-
sive way to keep your children from
wandering off. It involves a pocketful
of Tootsie Pops and some very stern
warnings, or "threats" if you'd rather.
If, however, losing your children on
the other side of a concrete wall is
becoming a problem, there is always
the child leash [shudder].
Plastic seat protector
This sturdy sheet of plastic goes
over your finer furniture to protect it
from leaky diapers and hands sticky
with apple juice. This is only useful,
however, if,you have already ignored
other people's advice to not have nice
furniture until your children are in
SPlastic car seat protector
A second cousin of the plastic seat
protector, this item goes beneath your
child's car seat to spare your uphol-
stery the damage that befalls most
things in close proximity of a toddler.
You can wrap your entire backseat in
-plastic if you want, but your child will
still get ketchup on the ceiling.
Mosquito netting for stroller
This net, which goes on the front
of a stroller, protects your child from
dangerous oncoming insects. Really,
though, how fast are these parents
walking that bugs are pelting their
children at high speeds?
Then again, I do live in Florida,
where love bug season can turn the
front of a white car black, and, I sup-
pose, no one wants to come back from
a family walk to find their child with
bugs in their teeth. But be careful
because it's a slippery slope: first the
netting, then the airbag.

Owning a pet can be a

it is also a big responsibil-

the added costs, consider
the time you will need to

'Thank you' from the CNO
By Adm. Mike Mullen
Chief of Naval Operations
Hello everyone. I
wanted to simply
say thanks. Thanks
to all our great Sailors and
to your families.
You are the best I've ever
seen in my four decades
of service and we simply
wouldn't be the Navy we
are today without you.
I've been asked by several
people over the last couple
of weeks what it is I will
miss most about this job
and about the Navy. I tell
them pretty simply, it's the
people. It's all of you.
It's people like HM2
Morgan Bradley. I met
Bradley back in January
2006 when I was on a tour
of the Haditha Dam in
Northern Iraq. While serv-
ing with the Mobile Assault
Company, 3rd Battalion,
1st Marine Regiment in the
fight for Fallujah, Iraq in
November 2004, Bradley
had repeatedly braved
enemy fire to care for his
At one point in the fire-
fight, he sprinted more
than 50 yards out in the
open, fully exposed to reach
two Marines wounded by
snipers. He pulled them
to safety behind a covered
position and calmly treated
their wounds. It happened
in an instant. But everyone
who witnessed it agreed
it was an act of incred-
ible courage not uncommon
for the young man from
Sacramento. Bradley him-
self was a little less sure
about all that.
"I was just doing my job,"
was all he would say.
Just doing my job.
If I've heard that once,
I've heard it a thousand
times since becoming CNO.
And, it hasn't just come
from Sailors like Bradley,
though I've certainly pinned
many medals on the chests
of deserving hospital corps-
It came from Seabees
as they worked to dig out
Gulfport, Miss., in the wake
of Hurricane Katrina. Most
of their own homes had
been obliterated, their own
families evacuated and yet
they rolled up their sleeves,
picked up their hammers
and helped put that town
back together. It was just
like something out of a
John Wayne movie.
I heard it from a group of
ombudsmen there as well.
Many of them had lost
absolutely everything. They
were hurting, barely getting
by and yet there they were

'Dragonslayers' protect refineries in Iraq
By MC3 Octavio N Ortiz
USS Enterprise Public Affairs
The HS-11 "Dragonslayers," deployed on
board USS Enterprise with Carrier Air
Wing One in the Persian Gulf recently
provided an aircraft and crew to conduct
airborne security patrol to help protect two
offshore oil refineries in Iraq.
The Khawr Al Amaya Oil Terminal
(KAAOT) and Al Basrah Oil Terminal (ABOT)
refineries provide more than 90 percent of
Iraq's annual income. They also supply the
world with close to 25 percent of its crude oil.
A helicopter requirement must be met,
but due to maintenance issues, other air-
craft weren't available so HS-11 was asked to
assist with operations.
A team of eight personnel was organized
into two crews and one aircraft to conduct
maritime security operations in the northern
Arabian Gulf. The crews conducted 23 combat
missions with a total of 85.6 flight hours.
Overseeing the operations was Combinad
Task Force (CTF) 158, a command and con-
trol center located on a barge known as Ocean
Six. Its mission is to defend the platforms and
coordinate operations with U.S. and coalition

Crewmembers from the HS-11 "Dragonslayers" recently participated in a security operations
mission to protect two oil refineries in Northern Iraq.
"CTF-158 is a task force that was orga-

Fleet Readiness Center

ly completed its 16th F/A-
18 Center Barrel Replacement
(CBR+) aircraft for fiscal year

the "Pacesetters" at FRCSE as
To celebrate this unprecedent-
ed accomplishment, FRCSE held
a short ceremony last month in
Hangar 101 to mark the occasion
and to recognize the more than
300 personnel who were involved
in reaching this significant mile-
FRCSE Commanding Officer
Capt. Tim Matthews addressed
the Pacesetters at the ceremony.
Matthews talked about the early
days of the CBR+ Program and
the struggles the facility encoun-
tered in meeting its goals for pro-
duction. He then spoke of the vast
improvement in turn-around-time
(TAT) that led to "Sweet 16."
"This team is made up of people
from many trades throughout the
facility who pulled together to
accomplish this goal of complet-
ing 16 aircraft by the end of fiscal
year '07. We have reached our
goal and I salute you," he stated.
Rear Adm. Michael Hardee,
commander, Fleet Readiness
Centers, was not able to attend
the ceremony but sent a letter
to Matthews congratulating the
team on its accomplishment. He
said, "You have lots to celebrate
and should be very proud of the
role you play in generating com-
bat readiness for our warfight-
ers. The return of "Sweet 16" to
VFA-87 this week is a milestone
accomplishment for FRCSE;
Please accept my heartfelt con-
gratulations on reaching this
critical milestone. Thank you and
bravo zulu for fixing it once, fix-
ing it right and fixing it on time!"
The F/A-18 Hornet,- an all-
weather aircraft and the nation's
first strike fighter, is the U.S.
Navy's premier fighter/attack air-
craft. In its fighter mode, the F/A-
18 is used primarily as a fighter
escort and for fleet air defense. In
its attack mode it is used for force
projection, interdiction and close
and deep air support. FRCSE cur-
rently repairs and modifies the
F/A-18 C and D models.
Early in 2003, Vice Adm. Walter
Massenburg, commander, Naval
Air Systems Command, chal-
lenged all depot level facilities
to improve reliability and reduce
TAT. Little did the workforce
know they would be challenged
so soon. Later in 2003, what was
then the Naval Air Depot, accept-
ed the workload of replacing the
F/A-18 center barrels. Also in
2003, the facility received its first
fixture and inducted one aircraft
for the center barrel replacement.
The center barrel is arguably
the most critical part of the air-
craft. That is where the fore and
aft fuselage sections, wings and
landing gear all connect. It also is
the part that takes on the brunt
of arrested landings aboard air-
craft carriers. When the F/A-18
was built, the prime contractor,
McDonnell Douglas, designed the
center barrel to last 6,000 flight
hours. As the aircraft approached
those hours, the airframe had
held -up well. The Navy didn't
want to retire the F/A-18 so the
solution was to replace the center
Since the advent of Lean/Six
Sigma, FRCSE has been doing
things differently. The facility has
"Leaned" out the process of every-
thing they do. This includes air-
craft maintenance. Lean thinking
is summarized in five principles:
precisely specify value by specific
product, identify the value stream
for each product, make value flow
without interruptions, let the cus-
tomer pull value from the produc-
er, and pursue perfection. Simply
put, trim the fat.
To improve the schedule and
cost execution, the team also uti-
lized a management technique
known as the "Four Disciplines of

Cell No. 1 is pre-strip. It is here
that the aircraft is prepared for
the strip hangar, where they will
strip the paint from the aircraft
and then preserve the bare metal
with a primer coat. In pre-strip
the artisans remove the engines,
electronics, tail hook, launchers,
guns, de-arm the fire bottles, and
perform a cabin pressure check.
(Then it's on to cell No. 2.
In cell No. 2, which is post-strip,
the artisans remove the hori-
zontal stabilizer, radome, wings,
landing gear, fuel cell plumbing,
and leading edge extensions.
Cell No. 3 is the pre-fixture cell.
In this cell they spot the aircraft
and level the bucks (jack stands),
set-up for and perform optical
laser alignment, and remove some
skins and engine nacelles.
Cell No. 4 is the fixture cell and
where the artisans perform the
center barrel change. There are
three of these cells in the hangar.
This is where they actually split
the aircraft. The forward fuselage
is removed from the center barrel
and the center barrel is removed
from the aft fuselage. The instal-
lation of the new center barrel is
performed in reverse order. This
process sounds quick .and easy,
but it is not. The details are too
many to list for this article, but
just to give you an example of
how tedious the work is to per-
form, each of the 4,000 holes the
artisans drill and ream must be
inspected and measured by the
facility's quality assurance team.
Cell No. 5A is the post fixture
cell. This is where they prime the
inaccessible areas and install the
nacelles and some of the skins,
among other tasks. In cell No.
5B the artisans install longerons,
more skins, and hardware.
Cell No. 6 is an assembly cell.

The test pilot takes the aircraft up for a rigorous flight
test. It is the test pilot's job to push the aircraft to its lim-
its while noting any discrepancies. Once the discrepancies
are corrected the aircraft is off to the paint hangar before
being flown back to the squadron.
To keep things moving smoothly, the cells all have to
"'pulse" or move the aircraft at the same time. With the
exception of cell No. 4, the fixture cell, which pulses every
:45 days, the cells pulse every 15 days.

as time went on and they learned to lean out the process,
:FRCSE was able to meet its goal of completing 16 center

of more good things to come. The facility is on the verge
of decreasing the pulse time to 13 days which gets the
aircraft back to the warfighter in less time and enables
our military to continue its pursuit of the war on terror.

ment and perfection. Some people say perfection is impos-
'sible. But the pursuit of perfection is always a step in the
The F/A-18 CBR+ Project has been a particularly com-
plex challenge for FRCSE. As with any new project, there
was a steep learning curve, from both a technical and
logistics perspective. The success of the project is directly
attributable to the diligence, determination and innova-
tion of the artisans on the shop floor and those who sup-
port them. With the Lean and 4D "Airspeed" tools, the
F/A-18 team has proven they can reduce variability in the
process and deliver on-time and on-cost.

Manage conflict by being
quick to listen, slow to speak
By Chaplain Lt. Joe Molina
NAS Jax Chapel
Aman went to his neighborhood bar-
ber for a haircut. The barber was
one of those "little people" always
cutting others down to size. He was the
type of person with always something
negative to say. He just
loved to discourage. The
customer sat down for
his cut and proceeded
to tell the barber that
he was taking a trip
to Rome. The barber's e.
response was typically .
negative, "Well, I hear
that Rome is overrated.
The hotels are over-
priced. The streets are
a nightmare to drive in !
and Italians are rude to
Americans. You'll hate
the trip. You're throw- -
ing your money away!"
The customer protest- Chaplain Lt
ed, "But I've been saving
my money for years. Besides, there's a good
chance that I'll be able to get an audience
with the Pope."
"I wouldn't count on it if I were you," said
the barber. "The Pope only gives audiences
to really important people."
A few weeks later, the man returned to
the barbershop. "Well how was the trip?"
asked the barber, sarcastically.
"Rome was beautiful. The hotels were
outstanding and the Italians were super
friendly. Hey, I even got to see the Pope!"
said the customer.
The barber couldn't believe it. "You got
to see the Pope? What happened?"
"That's right, I even bent down and
kissed his ring," said the customer.
"Wow! Did the Pope say anything?" asked
"Yes, he did. He looked down at my head
while I was kneeling and said 'what a lousy.

Have you ever gotten into those kinds of
unending exchanges with seemingly dif-
ficult people? It's called "one-upmanship."
It is the kind of antagonism that can build
up into aggression that doesn't help in
winning friends and influencing people.
These exchanges have a tendency to esca-
late until we allow the subtle exchanges to
turn into ugly, abrasive confrontations.
Things are said. Feelings are trampled
and then after this catharsis of emotions
and anger take place, we find ourselves at
a loss and maybe even feel defeated. These
kinds of experiences invade the tranquility
of our lives. It can lead us to ask impor-
tant questions such as: How can I avoid
conflict? If in a tense relationship how can
I apply principles to keep me walking the
high road? How can I manage a conflict so
as to preserve friendships and rise above
the situation? After all, differences of opin-
ion and interpersonal conflicts are inevi-

rists emphasize the use
of the receivers (ears).
Common sense points
out the importance of
listening. The problem
arises when we allow
the mouth to work twice
as much as the ears. As
we listen, we need to lis-
ten with the "inner" ear
of the heart and try to
identify what the speaker is truly address-
ing. We then assume responsibility for
those things that we can fix and whenever
necessary have the integrity to apologize
when we are at fault.
Be slow to speak. In his classic work
"How to Win Friends and Influence
People," Dale Carnegie wrote, "Criticism
is futile because it puts a person on the
defensive and usually makes him strive
to justify himself. Criticism is danger-
ous because it wounds a person's precious
pride, hurts his sense of importance and
arouses resentment. Any fool can criticize,
condemn and complain - and most fools
do. But it takes character and self control
to be understanding and forgiving." This is
Be slow to become angry. Anger has the
power to divide and destroy friendships.
But is anger normal? Yes! Anger is an indi-
cator pointing out that something is wrong
and needs fixing. Allowed to run its course,
anger is an energy force that will deplete
our pool of positive energy.
We must harness anger and convert it
into a positive force. This process begins
with forgiveness and restoration. This
assumes the other party's willingness
to return in kind. When the other party
insists in their belligerence we do have the
inherent right to disengage ourselves and

tQ, Why was there a
need for such a
*law and regula-
A: Predatory lending
practices have continually
had a negative effect on
the financial well-being of
service members and their
families. The Department
of Defense (DoD) supports
their financial well-being
by providing education and
counseling and by advocat-
ing that established finan-
cial institutions and various
service mutual aid societies
provide the best financial
support in emergencies.
The DoD has found that
education and counseling
are an important aspect of
protecting service members
and their families; however,
there is a narrow window of
opportunity to inform and
convince young families of
what may constitute a ben-
eficial product to fit their
when there are many mes-
sages to the contrary.
Q: What lending prod-
ucts did DoD review when

counselors and legal assis-
tance attorneys who regu-

bers on indebtedness issues,
identified these five prod-
ucts as the most detrimen-
tal financial products avail-
able to service members.
The products reviewed
represented two kinds of
financial problems for ser-
vice members and their
families. Payday and vehi-
cle title loans represent
products that can contrib-
ute to a cycle of debt, and
installment loans, and tax
refund anticipation loans
represent products that can
cost the military consum-
er. high fees and interest
charges. The cycle of debt
products represent a more
significant concern to the
DpD than the high cost of
When developing the
regulation, these five prod-
ucts were examined closely.
Payday loans, vehicle title
loans and tax refund antici-

ly covered by the regulation

characteristics and the abil-

could prevent unintended
consequences while afford-
ing the protections granted
by the statute.

From Military Homefront
s part of the 2007 Talent-Nelson amendment to the

the Department of Defense defined regulations that

final regulation was released Aug. 31and took effect Oct. 1.
The final rule regulates the terms of payday loans, vehi-
cle title loans and tax refund anticipation loans when

'Bull' needs your help
Do your part to
By Alan Sarge
NAS Jax Firefighter/EMT
and Randy Hall
NAS Jax Fire Chief
Hello there! My name is "Bull."
It's a nickname the firefight-
ers at the NAS Jax Fire
Department gave me and it's short
for "Ambulance." I am the proud new
addition to the fire department. I live
in the fire station with "Jax," the old
fire engine and "Quint," the 105-foot
I am really excited and happy to be
here to serve you, however, as I have
driven my crews to medical respons-
es, I have found a big problem that
you, and only you, can help us with.
I wanted to take this opportunity to
educate you on something that would
help us serve you better - the proper
way to make a 9-1-1 emergency phone
The fire department has certain
time limits in which to respond to an
emergency, so if we do not have the
proper information on where the actu-
al emergency is, it makes it real hard
for us to find you. When you phone in
an emergency there are a few impor-
tant things for us to know prior to
leaving our stations. Our dispatcher
needs to know what the emergency is,
where it is, who is involved and how
long the emergency has been going
The first thing to know before call-
ing 9-1-1, is what the emergency is or
what the nature of the problem is. For
example, there is a man/woman feel-
ing sick, dizzy or having chest pain.
Or maybe an event such as a dump-
ster on the south side of a building
on fire, a car in the parking lot on the
north side is leaking gasoline from
the bottom rear of the car, the office
on the east side has a burning smell
The next thing to know is what
building the emergency is hap-
pening in. You would be surprised
at the number of people who don't
know where they work. Sometimes
it's caused by the excitement of just
making a 9-1-1 call to help your ship-
mates. We recommend you write it on
your phone. This is very important so
we can respond to the correct location
in an efficient and timely manner.
The next thing to report is who you
are and what is a good phone number
you can be reached at. This is in case
we have to call back for more details
about the emergency. And lastly, how
long the incident has been going on
since it started.
Once you have finished making your
emergency call, please have someone
outside to direct the fire department
personnel to the emergency.
Your location in a building is also
very important. Be sure to let the dis-
patcher know exactly where you are
located, such as what deck and a room
number. If you know where you are in
reference to north, south, east or west
that will help.
At NAS Jax, it's relatively easy. The
St. Johns River is east, the airfield
is north, the main gate is west and
the Buckman Bridge is south. Many
of the buildings here are very large
and to relocate a truck once we stop
means we have to go back to where
we got off. In many cases a patient
with a heart attack only has six to
eight minutes to live without life sup-
port. That is very valuable time that
we need not waste.
As you can see, there are some very
important things we need to know in
order to respond quicker and to be
more prepared for your emergencies.
Having this information before you
call would be a great help to us and
would certainly benefit you from our
speedy response. Take a deep breath
before picking up the phone and know
where you are, what your emergency
is, who you are and how we can reach
you and how long has the emergency
"Jax," "Quint" and me, "Bull," will
quickly come to your aid carrying our
firefighters and emergency medical
technicians after you give us the prop-
er information. Thanks and hopefully
I will not have to see you out there.
One final thing, please pull over for
us when you see us coming with lights
and sirens, it makes it safer for all of
us and it's the law.

members have other options
than predatory lenders
From Page 9
Q: What is being done to ensure service members and
their families have access to emergency funding?
A: Three main things are being done. First, DoD is
stressing that all service members should have an emer-
gency savings fund. (Most emergencies can be handled
with $500 in savings.) This was one of the core messages
of the "Military Saves Campaign" held earlier this year.
This same message will be re-emphasized during next
year's campaign, which runs Feb. 24 to March 2. Second,
the military aid societies, who are champion advocates
against predatory lending, continue to provide grants
and no-interest loans to service members in need. Third,
the department has been joined by the Federal Direct
Insurance Corporation to encourage banks and credit
unions to develop small, low-interest loans for service
members and their families if they are caught in a finan-
cial bind. Currently there are financial institutions on
about 51 installations providing these types of loans and
more are considering doing so.
Q: What alternatives do service members have if they
need money quickly?
A: DoD prefers that service members and their fami-
lies who experience financial duress seek help through
military aid societies, military banks and defense credit
unions rather than through credit products that would
more likely mire them in a cycle of debt. These preferred
institutions have established programs and products
designed to help service members and their families

and establish savings. We are advocating that more finan-

The military aid societies are strong advocates for lim-
iting the cost associated with credit and for creditors to
develop alternative products for service members who can-
not otherwise qualify for loans. Within their own resources
they provided $87.3 million in no-cost loans and grants to
service members and their families in 2005. These funds
were provided for emergencies and essentials, such as
rent, food and utilities.

Navy nurse makes Navy golf team
By Marsha Childs
NH Jax Marketing
Naval Hospital Jax Family
Division Officer Cmdr.
Elizabeth Breza, competed in the
Navy golf trials at NAS Oceana
Aeropines Golf Club in Virginia
and qualified for the 2007 Navy
Golf Team Sept. 24-26. Later
in the week, Breza went on to
compete in the Armed Forces
Championship and finished
fifth, just shy of qualifying for
the U.S. Armed Forces team.
Nevertheless, she finished as the
top Navy female golfer on the
"Competition was pretty tight
and although this was one of my
best scoring years, the scores were
lower than in years past," she
said. The top two women and top
six men from the tournament rep-
resented the U.S. Armed Forces
in the Conseil International du
Sport Militaire's World Military
Golf Championships (CISM) in
PGA Professional Scott Mahl-
berg, Breza's coach, lives in San
Diego, which is Breza's and her
husband, Patrick's home of resi-
dence. Breza said she feels com-
fortable working with Mahlberg
remotely. Her husband, who
stayed in San Diego during his
wife's Jacksonville tour, takes les-
sons from Mahlberg and passes
along tips from their coach on
improving her game.
Breza never touched a golf club
before joining the Navy 21 years
ago. "I grew up playing softball
and baseball and soccer," she said,
"and I grew up in the suburbs of
central New Jersey. Back then,
golf was considered a sport for the
wealthy, for those who belonged
to a country club."
She also thought it was a stupid
and boring game. It wasn't until
she overheard her mother explain
to her brother it was a good busi-
nessman's game that she became
interested in the sport.
Her only regret was she didn't
take lessons when she first start-
ed playing seriously at her first
duty station in Rota, Spain.
"It becomes very challenging to
try and get rid of all the bad hab-
its," she concluded.
During a tour of duty in Hawaii,
Breza competed in her first major
tournaments. While assigned
to various Marine commands,
she played on the All-Marine
Golf Team in the Armed Forces
Championship in 1997 and again
The Navy had a reciprocal
agreement with the Marines that
allowed Sailors on Marine teams.
The Marines were challenged to
find a full compliment of women
for their mixed team.
Later, Breza qualified for the
All Navy Golf Team and made
the Armed Forces Team in
2001 and qualified for the All
Navy Golf Team from 2004-06.
She also qualified for the U.S.
Golf Association Women's Mid-
Amateur in 2005 and 2006.
In 2003, Breza was unable to
try out for the Navy team. She
deployed to Camp Doha in Kuwait
for three months as a liaison offi-
cer to the Navy Surgeon's Office
for Navy Central Command based
in Bahrain. She dealt with medi-
cal issues for the Fleet Marine
Force-the operating forces,
which she found very rewarding
Breza continues to compete in
local tournaments and enjoys
playing in the Hawaii State
Amateur tournament every year.
In January, she played in the
Women's South Atlantic Amateur
Golf Championship in Ormond
Beach, where she made her one
and only hole in one on a par 3,
"That was pretty awesome," she
stated. "As long as you have fun
that is what counts and that is
what's great about the game."
Renovations, new in-patient

been working for
some time to upgrade
patient care areas. Those
closer to realization on
Sept. 21 when Naval
Southeast awarded C.
Ydung Construction of
Jacksonville a $4.9 million
contract for two projects in
the main facility.
"Upgrading our facility
spaces is an integral com-
ponent to ensuring that
we continue to provide the
highest quality of patient
care and patient safety
while promoting efficien-
cies in delivering that,"
said Hospital Commanding
Officer Capt. Raquel Bono.
In-patients at the naval
hospital will soon have
more privacy. The latest
hospital areas to undergo
renovations and construc-
tion are the seventh floor
Surgical Recovery Ward
and a new in-house phar-
macy on the fifth floor. Both
projects began Oct. 1.
The goal on the seventh
floor is to turn the existing
four patient rooms that cur-
rently share one bathroom
into individual patient
rooms each with their own
The finishes on the sev-
enth floor will match the
design of the newly reno-
vated eigth floor Maternal
Infant Unit. That design
has proven very popular
with patients. The seventh
floor renovations should be
completed by October 2008.
The construction of a
new in-patient pharmacy
on the fifth floor will begin
simultaneously. The new
pharmacy will comply with
U.S. Pharmaceutical Code
797 requiring intravenous
medications be handled in a
clean room environment. It
is slated for completion in
"These are just some of
the enhancements patients
can expect to see here over
the next couple of years,
and we are very excit-
ed about the benefits the
planned facility enhance-
ments promise for patients
and staff," Bono said.
"While you may notice hard
hat crews in the halls and
elevators, we will strive to
keep patient impact mini-
mal. The great family cen-
tered care you are used to at
Naval Hospital Jacksonville
will continue, but as the
planned projects are com-
pleted you will receive that
care in a much more attrac-
tive and efficient environ-
ment. Improving our facili-
ties is just one more way

The contract process
was spearheaded by Naval

Family readiness crucial in today's Navy
By FLTCM(SS/SW) Rick West
The Navy's credo is "Mission
First, Sailors Always."
Many see this as a care-
ful balance between the needs of
the service with the needs of the
Sailors. Others interpret it as tak-
ing care of our people ensures the
success of the Navy mission.
I subscribe to the philosophy
that leaders (at all levels) will
ensure mission success by lead-
ing and communicating with their
people. Few organizations demand
as much from its employees' fami-
lies than the military. We work
demanding hours, move and travel
constantly, and endure separations
reaching or exceeding 12 months
at a time. This is not always an
But service-over-self is never an
easy lifestyle. It explains why the
families who accept this life are
such honorable people.
Families take it in stride. They
understand sacrifice and why it
must be done. They endure the
long, lonely nights during deploy-
ments, and they accept the missed
family special events because they
know how important the job is.
This is why I say the families
are the heart of our Navy. Without
their support, our Sailors can't
effectively do their jobs.
So what do we do to support
those who support us? Are you
familiar with everything the Navy
has set up to give back to the fami-
lies who give so much to the Navy?
If you're not, let me give you a
short primer to Navy family sup-
port. All Navy leaders need to
be well versed in where to go to
obtain assistance and required
First and foremost, we have the
Navy Fleet and Family Support
Centers (FFSCs). Around each
FLTCM(SS/SW) Rick West
fleet concentration area, FFSC is
chock-full of programs, classes,
and counselors whose sole purpose
in life is to help make things easi-
er for Sailors and their families.
They help us make the move
from the military to civilian life
with transition assistance, or the
move from one duty station to the
next with relocation assistance.
Money issues are always a chal-
lenge, so the personal finance
programs can help families deal
with money management for debt
reduction, budgeting and financial
Case in point - did you know
financial issues are the number
one reason our Sailors lose their
security clearance, and most of the
time, lose the ability to do their
jobs? It's a sad, preventable real-
Few families can experience a
challenge the trained professionals
at FFSC cannot assist them with,
so please take advantage of their
services. You can check out every-
thing FFSC has to offer by visiting
their website at http://www.ffsp.
The Navy has embraced a cul-
ture of fitness and I hope that
you, your Sailors, and your family
members, have also embraced that
culture of fitness.
A recent initiative is working to
promote Navy Regional Fitness
Centers have designed family
friendly zones for parents wanting
to work out while watching their
A family fitness room, situated
inside the fitness center, offers a
convenience to patrons, so par-
ents can have the opportunity to

FROM THE FLEET
Another group of incredibly
valuable and unique members
of our Navy family are our Navy
ombudsmen. Navy ombudsmen
provide a wealth of information,
knowledge and experience whose
main mission is providing a direct
link between the commanding offi-
cer and the families of the com-
If you don't know who your com-
mand's ombudsman is, then that's
a problem. Ombudsmen are typi-
cally very visible, easily accessible,
and have the commanding officer's
ear to provide information flow
both ways. Here's the job descrip-
tion straight from the book:
". .. a command operated pro-
gram intended to improve com-
munication between the command
and a Sailor's family members.
Most importantly, it keeps mem-
bers informed about command
policy and the command aware of
family concerns. A major function
of the ombudsman is providing
information and referral services
to the families. . ."
So my advice to you is simple,
get in contact with your ombuds-
man, get on the command phone
tree, and update your address for
the command familygram/newslet-
ter. Ensure you and your family
members are in the loop so you
know what's going on, your voice
can be heard, and you can get help
More information regarding the
Navy Ombudsman Program is
available at http://www.ffsp.navy.
I understand that some prob-
lems or issues do not have cut and
dry solutions. Some can be painful
and personal. And while I encour-
age getting information, I strongly
urge you to seek out the help and
assistance the Navy offers when

The AWBS program is used to elec-
tronically document the weight and
balance control for both fixed and
rotary wing aircraft for all branches of
service. Maintenance/material control
officers are assigned as weight and
balance officers for each command
and are required to be certified to
maintain these records by completing
Aviation Maintenance Officer School
or the FASOTRAGRULANT Weight
and Balance Course.
Commands have designated weight
and balance officers; "however, new
programs bring on new questions and
challenges. The purpose of the confer-
ence was to provide follow-on training
to local commands on the AWBS ver-
sion 9.2. Lockheed-Martin Aerospace
developed AWBS as a joint service
program. The Navy has converted
to the AWBS program and is fully
involved in all development issues.

* School: For a career day, might have two or
three Sailors talk about their job in the Navy.
Talk about experiences since leaving high
school. Why you joined the Navy, life on a ship,
what do each of your ribbons mean, etc. Or, for a
science/technology day, maybe have an IT/ST/CT

Commissaries triple availability of organic foods
By Lynda Valentine
Defense Commissary Agency
U.S. sales of organic
foods have grown
between 20-25 per-
cent annually for the past
seven years. During that
time, Defense Commissary
Agency (DeCA) commissar-
ies more than tripled the
number of organic products
available on their shelves.
To be labeled "organic,"
food must be produced with-
out using most conventional
pesticides, fertilizers made
with synthetic ingredients,
or ionizing radiation. With
regard to meat, poultry,
eggs and dairy products,
organic means they come
from animals that are given
no antibiotics or growth
"To ensure our patrons
have available the products
they want we keep an eye
on trends. Because of this,
you'll see organic selec-
tions on our shelves," said
DeCA Director and Chief
Executive Officer Patrick
Nixon. "Organic alterna-
tives are side-by-side with
similar nonorganic items

To find organic products
in your local store, look
for the circular green and
white "USDA Organic" seal,
which is on items where 95-
100 percent of the ingredi-
ents are organic. Use of the
seal is voluntary, so some
products may simply state
"organic" on the label with-
out using the seal.

follow-on assignment was as executive offi-
cer on board USS Yorktown (CG 48). In
1992, Vitale reported to the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, serving as the directorate for plans
and interoperability until July 1994, when
he subsequently attended the National
War College in Washington, D.C., earning
a Master of Science in National Security
His next tour took him on board USS
John S. McCain (DDG 56) as command-.

1997. From January 1998 to August
1999, Vitale served as the director of the

and Connecticut be asked to dispatch
armed vessels to lay in wait to intercept
the munitions ships. Next, they outlined
a plan for the equipping by Congress of
two armed vessels to cruise east to inter-
cept any ships bearing supplies to the
British army. Congress let this plan lie on
the table until Oct. 13, 1775 when anoth-
er event occurred in favor of the naval
movement. A letter from Gen. George
Washington was read in Congress in which
he reported that he had taken under his
command, at Continental expense, three
schooners to cruise off Massachusetts to
intercept enemy supply ships. The com-
mander in chief had preempted members
of Congress reluctant to take the first step
of fitting out warships under Continental
authority. Since they already had armed
vessels cruising in their name, it was not
such a big step to approve two more. The
committee's proposal, now appearing emi-
nently reasonable to the reluctant mem-
bers, was adopted.
The Continental Navy grew into
an important force. Within a few days,
Congress established a naval committee
charged with equipping a fleet. This com-
mittee directed the purchasing, outfitting,
manning, and operations of the first ships
of the new Navy, drafted subsequent naval
legislation, and prepared rules and regula-
tions to govern the Continental Navy's con-
duct and internal administration.
Over the course of the War of
Independence, the Continental Navy sent
to sea more than 50 armed vessels of vari-
ous types. The Navy's ships seized enemy
supplies and carried correspondence and
diplomats to Europe, returning with need-
ed munitions. They took nearly 200 British
vessels as prizes, some off the British Isles
themselves, contributing to the demoraliza-
tion of the enemy and forcing the British
to divert warships to protect convoys and
trade routes. In addition, the Navy pro-
voked diplomatic crises that helped bring
France into the war against Great Britain.
The Continental Navy began the proud
tradition carried on today by our United
States Navy, and whose birthday we cel-
ebrate each year in October.

October is National Disability
Employment Awareness Month
From the Multi-Cultural
This year's theme is "Workers with
Disabilities: Talent for a Winning
The month of October was designat-
ed by Congress as National Disability
Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).
The Office of Disability Employment Policy
takes the lead in planning NDEAM activi-
ties and materials to increase the public's
awareness of the contributions and skills
of American workers with disabilities.
This effort to educate the American pub-
lic about issues related to disability and
employment began in 1945, when Congress
enacted a law declaring the first week in
October each year "National Employ the
Physically Handicapped Week."
In 1962, the word "physically" was
removed to acknowledge the employ-
ment needs and contributions of individu-
als with all types of disabilities. Congress
expanded the week to a month in 1988 and
changed the name to "National Disability
Employment Awareness Month."
Did you know that...
The Department of Labor's Office of
Disability Employment Policy is an agency
within the U. S. Department of Labor that
provides national leadership to increase
employment opportunities and eliminate
barriers to employment for adults and
youth with disabilities.
According to the U. S. Census Bureau,
about 49.7 million Americans have a dis-
ability, which includes people of all ages.
As of March 2003 the Disability Status
2000 Census Brief reports there are about
18,525,862 persons who are disabled and
employed in the U.S.
Here are some famous people who
despite their disabilities chose not to limit
their lives but instead, chose to rise above
their situation and make distinctive contri-
butions to our society and world.
