A dm. Gary Roughead offered his
first message to the fleet since
assuming duties as the 29th Chief
of Naval Operations Sept 29. The text of
his message is provided below:
The opportunity to continue to serve
and to lead our Navy is the highest honor
for any naval officer. Assuming the lead-
ership of our Navy from Adm. Mike
Mullen is a great privilege. His vision,
drive, and commitment to those who
serve have positioned us well today and
for tomorrow. I know all of you join me in
wishing him and Deborah every success
as he takes up his new responsibilities as
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
I am of the fleet. It is where I began
and where, for the past four years, in
the Atlantic and Pacific, I have had the
privilege of leading our operational forc-
es, Navy and joint. I have watched our
Sailors perform magnificently from the
high end of warfare to the most exten-
sive humanitarian operation ever under-
taken by our military. I am inspired by
our individual augmentees and others on
Sthe ground. They are a new dimension
of our Navy and one in which we can all
take pride. We are truly a ready, agile,
and global Navy.
My priorities have been and will
,remain, maintaining our current readi-
iiess, building a Navy for tomorrow, and
that which underpins all we do, our peo-
ple. Our Sailors, our civilians and our
.very special families, whose hallmarks
are sacrifice and self-reliance.
Maintaining our warfighting readiness
will ensure we are an agile, capable, and
ready force. We are continually gener-
ating forces for the current fight and
are deploying and employing our Navy
much differently than in years past.
We are simultaneously providing ready
naval forces and personnel for joint force
commanders, sustaining forward pres-
ence, fulfilling commitments to allies,
and responding to increasing demands
in regions where we have not routine-
ly operated, specifically South America
Chief of Naval Operations
Adm. Gary Roughead
and Africa. Our global blue-water Navy,
centered around carrier strike groups,
expeditionary strike groups, and subma-
rines is unmatched, and will continue to
be our cornerstone. Our Fleet Response
Plan will increase our operational avail-
ability and allow us to operate with more
A Navy for tomorrow
The means and methods of conflict
and the security environment undergo
constant change. Technology and new
approaches are advancing rapidly. Our
ships, submarines, aircraft, weapons,
and networks must outpace potential
adversaries. The cost of future systems
and the ability of our overall acquisition
processes to pace the speed of technologi-
cal innovation will challenge our ability
to deliver a balanced force. Accordingly,
we must be exacting in developing
requirements, mindful of the factors that
increase cost, and disciplined in our pro-
cess to be effective, efficient, and timely
in delivering future capability.
Our people are the foundation for all
we do. All we acquire is of little worth

There are also new offices for
staff members, a lounge and
kitchen area. And the facility is
completely monitored with video

a new playground. With all the
extra room, Elliot plans to open
the facility to more children dur-
ing next year's summer break.
"In the past we've only been
able to take 120 kids but with our
new facility being so much bigger,
we will up our staff and be able to
take about 200 next year. And, we
plan to offer a lot more activities
for the kids," added Elliot.
The center is hosting a grand
opening event tomorrow night
from 6-8 p.m. for families and
children so everyone can check

Looking back in time...
ON THE HOMEFRONT
Military wife afraid to say
Rush Limbaugh is
By Sarah Smiley
L ately, I feel like a child caught
in the middle of a bitter divorce
between my "dad" (we'll just call
Shim "Rush") and my "mom" (let's call
her "everyone else on the left").
As many of you may know, con-
servative radio talk show host Rush
Limibaugh is embroiled in a controver-
sy with basicallyfeveryone on the left
over, basically, whether or not he said
"phony soldier" or "phony soldiers"
when he referenced Jesse MacBeth,
recently sentenced to five, months in
prison for falsely claiming to be a vet-
eran when he took up the anti-war
MediaMatters.org, a group that
would like us to believe Limbaugh
smeared American service members,
explains the controversy like this:
"During the Sept. 26 broadcast of his
nationally syndicated radio show,
Limbaugh called service members
who advocate U.S. withdrawal from
Iraq 'phony soldiers'."
'-,In response, on Limbaugh's Oct. 1
,broadcast he said, "I want to apologize
- to all of the members of the United
' States military, both in uniform and
- out, active duty and retired, for Media
Matters for America. I';want to apolo-
giZe to you on behalf ot them since the
i' beginning of this program I have been
one of the most ardent, loyal, in-awe
supporters of any and all who wear
the uniform, including those who dis-
i agree with the mission."
As a military dependent for going
on 31 years (first as a Navy brat and
now as a Navy wife), I feel like a child
ping-ponging between two parents
disagreeing over who loves me more.
My own parents are still married, so
I can only imagine, but to put this
debate into the context of parents
fighting over a child, consider this
Mom to child: "Your father is a
liar. He doesn't love you. He only
thinks of himself and what's best for
Dad to child: "Your mother is
trying to make me look bad. She's
crazy! She doesn't even have the facts
straight. I'm the one who loves you.
Child: "Did anyone notice the 'A' I
made on my test last week?"
Mom and dad to child: "You took
a test last week?"
Along these same lines, when it
comes to The Right vs. The Left, with
military families in the middle, I often
find myself wrestling with conflicting
loyalties, just as a child's affections
might seem split between two par-
ents. In mixed company, I've some-
times censored myself for fear of the
"other 4de" (the other parent) taking
away t heir support.
As an example, I recently had din-
ner with a group of people whom I
suspected were liberals. When some-
how the subject of Limbaugh was
raised, I guiltily moved the conversa-
tion back to something a little less
prickly. I sensed my dinner compan-
ions' disapproval of Limbaugh. I saw
it on their faces, "Rush doesn't sup-
port the troops! He has you all fooled.
We are the ones who love you!"
Despite my innermost urgings, how-
ever, I stayed silent. I didn't want to
sacrifice one parent's feelings to sat-
isfy the other.
The next day, my husband, Dustin,
said, "I can't believe you didn't stick
up for Rush. You always stick up for
him." Then he added, almost as a
threat, "I wanted to stand up and say,
'Sarah thinks Rush is right... about
And just like a child of divorce, I
felt guilty for not defending my "par-
ent." But the other side/parent can be
mighty persuasive. And sometimes
they seem powerful, too. They hang
their love out there like a carrot on
a stick. Weekends spent with them
are more fun and exciting. They are
glamorous and indulgent, leaving the,
other parent no choice but to pick up
the seemingly less fun option of being
: Wait, we are still talking about poli-
Yet ironically, as the grown-up
wife of an active-duty service mem-
ber, I feel so much like a child caught
between two parents, the left and the
right. And, like a child, I feel an enor-
mous amount of guilt and fear when
I tell you today that I really do think,
in most instances, that Limbaugh is
right. But that doesn't mean that I
don't love you, too, mom. Or that I
don't appreciate all that you've.... oh,
never mind. You get the picture.

HS-5 returns from successful detachment
By Lt. Nick Kesler
The "Nightdippers" of HS-5 recently returned
home from a detachment on board USS Dwight D.
Eisenhower (CVN-69), where they helped provide
continuous search and rescue support during a two-week
fleet and training command carrier qualification period.
HS-5 departed NAS Jax on Sept. 12 taking 75 Sailors
and four aircraft to Norfolk, Va. where they met the car-
After pulling out of Norfolk, USS Eisenhower and HS-5
got to work helping qualify nearly 25 pilots from VFA-106
at NAS Oceana, Va. After finishing the first batch of car-
rier qualifications, the ship headed south to position her-
self off the northern Florida coast to help facilitate initial
qualifications for the training commands. Student pilots
from Training Wing One and Training Wing Two based at
NAS Meridian, Miss. and NAS Kingsville, Texas respec-
tively, flew their T-45 Goshawks from Cecil Field to obtain'
their initial training carrier qualifications.
The Navy's Helicopter Test and Evaluation Squadron
21 (HX-21) also came on board from NAS Patuxent River,
Md. to certify new helicopter precision landing areas on
board the carrier during the detachment. The new landing

areas will help expand the interoperability and flexibility
of concurrent fixed-wing and helicopter operations aboard
all of the Navy's Nimitz-class aircraft carriers.
Having HX-21 on board created an excellent opportu-
nity for Nightdipper maintenance personnel, aircrew and
pilots to learn about the Navy's two newest helicopters,
the Sikorsky MH-60R and MH-60S. During an in depth
tour given by members of HX-21, the Nightdippers were
able to ask questions and more fully understand the capa-
bilities of what will soon become the main helicopter plat-
forms throughout the fleet. With HS-5 due to transition to
the MH-60S in 2010, the tour along with the question and
answer period proved to be invaluable as HS-5 personnel
gained insight into the future of the squadron.
HS-5 also took advantage of their time on board the ship
completing various levels of search and rescue, anti-sub-
marine warfare, anti-surface warfare and naval special
warfare support training. This training helped many of
the aircrew and pilots work closer towards their respective
qualifications as tactical system operators and helicop-
ter aircraft commanders. One of the pilots, Lt. j.g. Brady
Broich, gained his qualification as a helicopter second
The Nightdippers returned home Sept. 28 and will
embark on board USS Eisenhower once more in November
and December before starting their maintenance and
training post-deployment recovery period. This mainte-
nance and training phase will last until next summer
when the Nightdippers will start a new work-up cycle
aimed towards another successful deployment in 2009.
HS-5 returns from Bahamas after successful ASW training
By Lt. Nick Kesler
Seventy-five squadron members of HS-5 and three
of the squadron's SH-60F helicopters were recently
detached to the Navy's Atlantic Undersea Test and
Evaluation Center (AUTEC) range facility on Andros
Island in the Bahamas to continue their ongoing sustain-
ment training. The detachment allowed the squadron to
focus on anti-submarine warfare (ASW) training.
As part of the ASW training, the aviation ordnancemen
(AOs) practiced uploading MK-50 recoverable exercise
torpedoes while the aircrews flew training missions just
offshore, passively and actively prosecuting a simulated
submarine and practicing their weapons delivery tactics.
During the training, the HS-5 "Nightdippers" uploaded
and successfully launched 12 exercise torpedoes.
The training proved highly beneficial for the
Nightdippers' detachment. For some of the maintainers it
was a much-needed respite from the long hours of recent
inspections and operations. The AOs proved yet again that
they are some bf the best in the Navy.
For the aircrews it was a time to hone their ASW skills.
These skills, including dual aircraft localization, track and
coordinated attack, are crucial to successfully denying
enemy submarines the opportunity of posing a risk to our
carrier battle groups.
Due to their hard work and dedication throughout the
week, HS-5 successfully gained torpedo qualifications for
all of their aircrew. This is a yearly qualification that
it AUTEC again next summer during their Helicopter
Advanced Readiness Program training as part of work-ups
to their scheduled 2009 deployment.

"All of the Nightdippers detached with us this week
proved their mettle. I like to see that our people can take
advantage of the many opportunities AUTEC offers, not
only the great training, but also the rest and relaxation
that many of them have needed," said HS-5 Executive
Officer Cmdr. Wade McConvey.

Children from the NAS jax Child Development Center get a chance to hug a fully dressed firefighter. The goal was to teach kids not to be afraid of the firefighters because they are there to
help them in case of an emergency.
Fire Prevention Week observed at NAS Jax
By MC2 (AW/NAC)
the word about fire
safety all over base during
this year's Fire Prevention
Week from Oct. 7-13.
The theme this year was
to "Practice Your Escape
Plan," encouraging fami-
lies to have two ways out
of every room, agree on a
meeting place and practice
the plan to be prepared in
case of an emergency.
"The key word in 'practice
your escape plan' is 'prac-
tice,"' Chief Fire Inspector
Charles McCoy emphasized.
"You have to have a plan
and you have to practice it.
In the event of a fire, you've
got to have a plan to get out
The week's .. Ats began
with an open house at
each fire station that ran
throughout the week and a
static display at the Navy
Exchange courtyard where
firefighters passed out
information on fire safety.
McCoy recommended to one
inquiring patron to have at
least two exits from every
room in case one is blocked
by fire, including upstairs
rooms. "If I slept upstairs,
I would have a fire ladder,"
McCoy said. The firefight-
ers also answered any ques-
tions that Navy Exchange
customers had about the
fire truck and Naval Fire
Safety House that were on
The Fire Safety House is
a trailer that simulates dif-
ferent storm and fire condi-
tions to teach people how
to escape a burning build-
ing. The storm warnings
come across the television
like a real weather report
would, then the trailer win-
dows start to move, and the
surround sound shakes the
building. There is a mock
911 phone that allows peo-
ple to actually dial 911 and
report the emergency. If
the smoke alarm goes off,
the occupants must crawl to
safety. The room fills with
a non-toxic "smoke" and if
the door is hot, they must
find another exit.

"The best part was the smoke," said 4-
year-old Jhamal Doe, a student at the NAS
Jax Child Development Center (CDC). "It
was cool and we blew it away." The chil-
dren were allowed to go through the Fire
Safety House and walk around the fire
truck to learn about all the components.
"I learned about the hose and about the
other hose. There were two hoses!" said
Daemeon Antriar, 4.
The firefighters visited the CDC and the
Youth Activities Center to show kids what
a firefighter looks like when they show up
to their house for an emergency. At the
Youth Activities Center, Firefighter Shane
McFadden dressed in all of his firefight-
ing gear and spoke to the children so that
they know not to be afraid if they are in
the unfortunate situation when they may
need a firefighter's help. Lt. Frank Knott
walked McFadden through the process,
explaining each step to the children.
"We're not there to scare you or hurt you,
we're there to get you out first," Knott reas-
sured the kids. They were then allowed to
touch the fully suited McFadden to broad-
en their knowledge of firefighters.
Children at the Youth Center also got to
go into the Naval Fire Safety House and
learned how to escape a burning building
by crawling out of the smoke.
The firefighters also paid a visit to the
Naval Hospital Jax Pediatrics Clinic and
Children's Ward promoting fire safety
and held random, unannounced fire drills
around the base during Fire Prevention
"We don't do these drills to fill in the
block," Fire Inspector Doug Thomas
explained to a group of employees of
Hangar 113 after evacuating the building.
"It's a people thing. Put yourself in the
firefighters' shoes. If they show up and not
everyone is here, then they're going into
that building looking for you."
The fire department recommends that
once everybody gets outside the building,
muster in a designated area to make sure
that each person is accounted for.
"Everything went beautiful this week,"
added McCoy at the end of the week. "We'
had outstanding fire drills and everyone
appreciated it. We passed out all sorts of
literature and pencils and fire hats at the
Naval Hospital, Child Development Center
and the Youth Activities Center. It was a
Each year, thousands of lives are lost and
property is damaged due to fires. Learning
some fire prevention facts and practicing

a do something theology is a
tradition that requires active

This requires putting our-
selves at risk for criticism
This brings me to a most
excellent example of faith in
action. Many of you may not
have ever heard of Sophie
Scroll. This story provides
a compelling and candid
example of two individuals
in terrible predicament yet
they felt compelled to act
efficaciously. Sophie Scroll
and her brother were both
very committed Catholics
who distributed anti-Nazi
leaflets outside a universi-
ty classroom in Munich in
1943. After leaving a trail,
Sophie and her brother were
convicted of treason and sub-
sequently executed. It was
her faith that compelled her
to protest against an unjust
and brutal regime.
Take a few moments to
think about how awesome
it is when our faith convicts
us in a way that we are
not physically and spiritu-
ally immobilized by fear.
The fear is present and real
but our faith moves us to
do something. One writer
postulates regarding the
German Protestant churches
inactivity during World War
II, "unfortunately, because of
compatibility of the German
Christian ideology with the
Nazis gained support from
many Protestant churches."
However, eventually there
was protest and resistance
and an identifiable hero
emerged who represented the
core values of Christendom.
Dietrich Bonheoffer played a
vital role as a freedom fight-
er in the church's opposition
to the Nazi's tyranny. In
fact, this Christian martyr
was eventually arrested and
executed. The faithfulness
of this pastor is evident in
the commentary of a doctor
present at his death, "I have
hardly ever seen a man die

A healthy diet
and exercise can
sculpt that body
By Maj. Karen Fauber
Defense Commissary Agency
It is extremely impor-
tant for active-duty per-
sonnel to be physically
fit. A common question in
relation to this is, "I want-
ed to get into better shape,
so I began lifting weights,
running more and eating
healthier! Are there any
supplements I should take,
too?" The short and simple
answer is, no, you don't
need to take any supple-
ments. Weight training and
running alone will make
you stronger, increase your
metabolism, good choles-
terol and muscle building
hormones, while improving
bone density, self-esteem,
and the heart and lung's
ability to bring oxygen to
muscles and get rid of car-
sports supplements are
very rarely based on good
research. They are not reg-
ulated by any agencies and
sometimes they're danger-
ous. So, how do you improve
body composition? A healthy
diet, a well-designed
strength training program,
cardiovascular exercise and
daily physical activity.
If you would still like an
edge, there are some foods
that are useful for exercise
recovery. They are also inex-
pensive and found on your
commissary's shelves. They
are low-fat cottage cheese,
chocolate or vanilla soy milk
and low-fat chocolate milk.
They are great because they
have whey and casein pro-
tein, two important proteins
for muscle repair. They also
contain a four-to-one ratio
of carbohydrate to protein,
which helps replenish gly-
cogen (stored carbohydrate)
that will be used for the
Although the diet plays a
huge role in gaining muscle
and losing fat, it is just as
important to stick to your
program. Don't fail by trying
a workout that is too rigid
to fit into a busy schedule
or too intense for the body
to withstand. The best idea
is to make small changes,
like eating breakfast daily,
drinking low-fat chocolate
milk after exercise, eating
more fruits and vegetables,
consuming more low-fat
meat instead of high-fat
meats, drinking less soda
or sugar drinks, and switch-
ing to whole grain bread
instead of white bread.
Whatever changes you
decide, make it last forever!

Road rage class
Todd Vittum, chief instructor for the American Institute
for Public Safety, presents the Aggressive Driver Course
"RoadRageous" to a group of Sailors at NAS jax Oct. 10. The
class focuses on driving habits that could endanger people or
property by individuals who are angry, lack courtesy when
driving or who break the rules of the road. It teaches them
to understand aggressive driving, how to eliminate harmful,
negative' driving attitudes, analyze traffic situations, develop
and strengthen positive driving attitudes and realize the need
for a lifelong driver self-improvement. The course was offered
here through the NAS Jax Safety Office as a pilot class that
may eventually be incorporated Navy-wide.

What are you so angry about?
Do you slam down the phone when
faced with endless computerized
voice prompts? Have you gotten
into a shouting match with a stranger over
a parking space at the mall? Ever put your
fist through the wall after an argument
with your spouse?
This is not anger management at its fin-
est. Although anger is a natural emotion,
it may be getting the best of you. Instead
of expressing your anger in a healthy and
assertive way, you may be expressing it in
a hostile, aggressive manner - a manner
that could lead to violence and a slew of
personal and professional consequences.
Here are some points to consider when
assessing whether you express your anger
in a healthy or unhealthy manner, and
how to get a better grasp of anger manage-
Understand your anger
Anger itself isn't bad. Expressed appro-
priately, anger can be healthy. It can help
protect you from dangerous situations,
energize you to resolve problems or lead to
sociocultural reforms, for instance.
Sure, everyday frustrations, impatience
and resentment can all cause your temper
to flare. For many people, these are fleet-
ing moments. They're able to take these
situations in stride and quickly return to a
sense of calm without exploding.
But if your blood boils after minor irrita-
tions, such as losing that coveted parking
space or if you're constantly seething, you
may need to improve your anger manage-
ment skills. Anger that's out of control
can be destructive, leading to problems in
your relationships, at work, in your gener-
al enjoyment of life and with your health.
You could even be arrested or face other
Determine your anger level
So, just how angry are you? The
list of words is a barometer of sorts.
Although they doesn't score your anger,
you can use them as a tool to raise your
self-awareness about your level of anger.
Use the list of words to describe your
behavior or thoughts over the past week.
Check the ones that apply to your anger.
List of Words
Angry, bitter, rebellious, spiteful,
deceived, annoyed, furious, resentful, bad-
tempered, ready to fight, yelling, frustrat-
If you have several check marks, your
anger level is on the high side. Try anger
management tips for several weeks to see
if you can keep your anger under control.
You may also want to consult an anger
management professional to help you learn
to handle anger in a healthier way and
to understand more about what's behind
your anger. Talk to your health care pro-
vider about resources, such as counseling
or anger management classes.
You can repeat this exercise over time to
see if your anger management skills are
Aim for constructive expressions of your
Anger management is not about stopping
you from expressing your anger entirely.
It's OK to feel angry. In fact, trying to sup-
press or deny your anger can lead to a host
of physical complaints, such as headaches,
depression, stress, and sleeping or eating
difficulties. It can also lead you to erupt
into violent behavior if your anger has
been simmering without an outlet.
The key, though, is to express your anger
in an assertive, controlled way. Managing
anger effectively can benefit you and those
around you. Your health may improve,
you'll feel better about yourself, and
strained relationships may heal. So get
your anger under control, before it controls

NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. thanks those who coordinated this year's
Navy Ball and introduces guest speaker Hafford Sharp, a survivor of USS Indianapolis (CA 35).
NAVY BALL: 'I could see the aft of
the ship coming out of the water and
I could see the screws still turning'
From Page 1
Green conducted the two-bell ceremony to
honor missing and fallen comrades.
After dinner, Scorby introduced guest
speaker Hafford Sharp, a World War II
survivor of USS Indianapolis (CA 35) which
was sunk July 31, 1945. Sharp was also a
veteran of the battle of Iwo Jima and the
battle of Okinawa where the Indianapolis
provided shore bombardment, air defense
and survived a kamikaze attack.
"I know that a lot of our young Sailors
are not familiar with the story of the dra-
matic sinking, so I have no doubt that
his account will be riveting for you," said
Scorby. "Mr. Sharp is a living testament to
our naval heritage."
Sharp spoke in detail about his experi-
ences on the night Indianapolis was sunk
and how he survived four days in the
. "When we were hit, there were no lights,
but having been on the ship so long I did
not need lights to get my clothes on and
move topside," said Sharp.
"As people walked past, I had to stop
them and ask what happened because
when we were hit, we barely felt it."
Sharp also explained about the last thing
he saw before he jumped overboard. "I
don't know why I did, but before I jumped
I looked over my shoulder and I could see
the aft of the ship coming out of the water
and I could see the screws still turning," he
Sharp's dramatic words summarized the
way many Sailors past and present have
felt about the Navy and ended his speech
to a standing ovation.
"When I went in the water that first
night, I wasn't worried because I knew
the ocean was big, but so is our Navy,"
Following Sharp's remarks, was the tra-
ditional cake-cutting ceremony with old-
est Sailor HS-3 Command Master Chief
CMDCM Olan Peters and the youngest
Sailor present, MUSN Maxwell Garcia-
Gonzalez of Navy Band Southeast. They
were joined by Scorby and Sharp. Peters
and Garcia-Gonzalez have over a 40-year
difference of age between them.
The evening was concluded with a vari-
ety of songs provided by the Navy Region
NEW CNO: More opportunity than challenge

without the people who give it value. Our
policies and practices must enable us to
attract, recruit, retain and fulfill the men
and women of America, and our Navy must
reflect the diversity of our nation.
The demographics, attitudes, and expec-
tations of our population are changing
and we must understand that dynamic.
Our policies must help us and address the
many rewards of service, and we must be
unwavering in our obligation to take care
of those who serve in our Navy and the
families who support them. This is par-
ticularly important today for those serving
in individual augmentation assignments.
Those are my priorities, but there is
another dimension to our future. We have
a unique historical, organizational, and
operational relationship with the U.S.
Our forces train, deploy, and fight togeth-
er. Our capabilities, programs and person-
nel issues are inextricably linked. I am
committed to the Navy and Marine Corps
partnership and to making it even stronger
and more relevant for the future. We can
do much for our country as a Navy-Marine
Although we are at war, I see more
opportunity than challenge and more in
our future than in our past. I look forward
to leading our Navy. I am eager to meet all
that is before us, and to serving with you

Commissary gets ringing endorsement
By Kevin Robinson
Defense Commissary Agency
Patrons continue to be satisfied with
the delivery of the benefit, according
to opinions expressed in the 2007
Commissary Customer Service Survey
(CCSS). They rated the commissary at 4.60
(on a scale of 1 to 5) - the second-highest
score in the agency's history.
"The commissary benefit belongs to our
patrons, so we take their opinions very
seriously," said Patrick Nixon, director
and chief executive officer of the Defense
Commissary Agency (DeCA).
"This is more than an indication of where
we are. We also use these results to help
determine improvements and changes such
as the design of future stores and the prod-
ucts we put on the shelves."
DeCA conducted the annual survey over
10 days beginning June 26 at its commis-
saries worldwide. Surveyed customers
answered a series of 14 questions designed
to measure all facets of their commissary
The questions targeted the following
areas: savings and prices; store hours,
d4cor and appearance; product quality,
selection and availability; checkout proce-
dures; and employee customer service.
The resulting 21,609 responses were
measured on a five-point rating scale,
ranging from one, "very poor," to five, "very
good." The overall CCSS score is an aver-
age of the 14 item scores:

14. Overall satisfaction (How did we do?)
4.68 4.72 4.72
4.55 4.61 4.60
The top three items receiving the high-
est ratings were "Courteous, friendly and
helpful employees" at 4.76, "Overall sat-
isfaction (How did we do?)" at 4.72, and
"Convenient hours" at 4.64. "Well-stocked,
full shelves" at 4.49, continued its rise, up
one point from last year and 11 points from
DeCA officials evaluate the results and
look at areas for improvement, said Barry
White, an operations research analyst at
DeCA headquarters. At the same time,
the commissary agency sees the continued
high marks as patrons' validation of the
"We predicted that at some point the
scores would tend to level off, and we may
be at that point now," White said.
"This year's score follows a relatively
large increase from the 2005 score of 4.55.
The 2007 score of 4.60 is within the "A"
DeCA has used a survey to rate its cus-
tomer service since its formation in 1991.
Before 2000, the survey was called the
Customer Service and Evaluation System,
an Air Force system based on a zero to 100
rating scale. Since 2000, the agency has
used the CCSS because it is custom-made
for evaluating commissary operations.
Ultimately, DeCA considers the survey a
tool for identifying opportunities to deliver
a better commissary benefit, Nixon said.
"The survey results give us a means to
identify potential improvements and to
monitor our customers' perceptions," the
"You cannot operate in a vacuum and be
successful. This process allows us to stay
in tune with our patrons and continue to
do what's best for them."
PRT and bathroom-
By Beth Wiruth
Each March and September some-
thing happens in my home, specifi-
cally in the bathroom. My bathroom
scales are frequented by my husband, often
several times per day. I know my home is
not the only one experiencing this phenom-
enon. It begins about the time the notice is
issued that physical readiness test (PRT) is
Does this happen in your home? Do you
have a Sailor who, facing the PRT weigh-
in, performs what resembles step aerobics
with your bathroom scales? Are they skip-
ping meals, passing up on dessert?
Maintaining physical readiness is the
responsibility of every member of the
armed forces. The Marines and Army start
each day with command physical train-
ing (PT); many Air Force commands do as
well. The Navy has renewed their commit-
ment to physical readiness standards. This
means that physical readiness must be
maintained by the individual Sailor. It is
their responsibility. Many Navy commands
are now incorporating command PT as part
of their workday. Personally I would like to
see that required of every command.
Why is this topic in a military spouse
column? Because we have a role to play in
the physical readiness of our sailors and
we need to know the consequences of fail-
ing to meet PRT standards. Your Sailor's
advancement is impacted by their physical
readiness. Failed PRTs will hamper their
advancement opportunities. But more than
that, if your Sailor fails three PRTs in four
years they will be administratively sepa-
rated (discharged) from the Navy.
Who does the cooking in your home?
How nutrition savvy are you? Do you know
proper portion sizes? Are you inadvertently
sabotaging your service member's physical
readiness? In most homes the spouse does
the cooking and we have a very real role to
play in supporting our Sailor.
Both my husband and I have family his-
tories of obesity. How we cook our meals,
what we cook, portion sizes and snacks
can undermine our efforts to maintain a
healthy weight. I can be my Sailor's num-
ber one hurdle.
In our 'super-size-it' culture the American
Dietetic Association observes that the aver-
age American does not recognize proper
portion sizes. For instance, one serving
of spaghetti should be one cup of cooked
.noodles with a half cup of sauce. That size
looks mighty small on our plate. Did you
know the proper portion of a hamburger
is the size of a peanut butter jar lid? How
about fruits and vegetables? Do you have
a bowl of fresh fruits at the ready for you
and your family? Are your snacks empty,
high carb calories or healthy vegetables?
Registered Dietician Carol Dilliott offers
these quick tips for long lasting weight
1. Eliminate sodas and high sugar drinks
from your diet. They are empty calories
and chemicals. Annual weight loss: 20
2. Increasing your intake of fresh veg-
etables by a half cup per day will result
in an average 15-pound weight loss in six
3. Increasing your intake of fresh fruits
by one portion per day will result in a 10-
pound weight loss in one year.
4. Do not put food on the table in serving
dishes. Rather, fill plates at the stove with
proper portions. Eliminate all seconds.
5. Learn proper portion sizes - check
cise/guide/creative-portion-control for cre-
ative ways to recognize the correct portion
6. Increase exercise. The TV is the num-
ber one hindrance to a healthy lifestyle.
Turn off the TV and take a walk together
as a family each evening, go on a bike ride
to incorporate 10-15 minutes of exercise in
the evening and see your weight stabilize.
Check out the Commissary's new "Ask
the Dietician" at their Web site (www.com-
missaries.com) for more ideas and informa-
tion on nutrition and weight loss.
By taking a few steps toward healthy
cooking and portion control our service
members can maintain their proper weight
throughout the year and give up bathroom-
