Dogs' rescue


shipmates

From HS-7

A n aircrew from the HS-7 "Dusty Dogs" safely
rescued three downed F-18 Hornet crewmem-
bers after two aircraft, an F/A-18E and an
F/A-18F from Carrier Air Wing Three, crashed dur-
ing operations in the Persian Gulf while conducting
flight operations off USS Harry S. Truman Jan. 7.
The rescue began as Dusty 615, crewed by Lt.
Patrick Morley, Lt. j.g. Collin Fox, AW2 Sean Attwill
and AW3 Johnny Garcia, was flying plane guard
around the carrier.
A "Mayday" call was suddenly heard over the radio at
approximately 7:30 p.m. after the F-18 crews collided
in mid-air- and ejected. HS-7 was immediately tasked
with the search and rescue (SAR) mission as Dusty 615
headed toward the estimated position of the downed
aircraft, about 25 nautical miles from the carrier. "
Several minutes later, Dusty 614 was called to
launch to assist in the search. The crew, consisting
of Lt. Brent Peterson, Lt. j.g. Jonathan Dorsey, AWl
Logan Robertson and AW2 Brenton Graham dressed
out and headed to the helicopter. The honed skills of
the crew and flight deck personnel enabled Dusty 614
to get off the flight deck quickly.

NAS Jax welcomes Hudson as new CMC


By Kaylee LaRocque
Editor
C MDCM(SS/SW) Jeff Hudson has
reported to NAS Jacksonville as
the command master chief (CMC)
and says he's looking forward to the chal-
lenges of his new role here.
"I think that one of the things I'm look-
ing forward to the most is the challenge
to do something completely different
by working with warfare communities
that I'm not used to working with," said
Hudson.
"I've heard nothing but positive things
regarding the teamwork at NAS Jax so
I'm excited about being involved and
being part of the team here. I've only
been here for a short time and am already
seeing that all the expectations that I


brought with me are going to be exceed-
ed."
Hudson was born in California and
raised in Texas and California, eventually
graduating from Paradise High School,
Paradise, Calif. He enlisted in the United
States Navy in June 1981. After com-
pleting Basic Training in San Diego, he
attended Submarine School in Groton, Ct.
and Advanced Electronic "A" School and
Missile Technician "C" School in Virginia
Beach, Va.
Hudson's first sea tour was on board
USS Francis Scott Key (SSBN 657) (Gold),
homeported in Charleston, S.C. While on
board, he qualified submarines, advanced
to missile technician first class, qualified
as diving officer of the watch and served
as the division leading petty officer. His
next assignment was as a recruit company


commander, Recruit Training Command
(RTC), San Diego. While assigned to RTC
he lead five recruit companies, was certi-
fied as a master training specialist, was
hand selected to teach the recruit compa-
ny commander course and was advanced
to chief petty officer.
His next sea tour was on board USS
Kentucky (SSBN 737) (Blue), homeported
in Kings Bay, Ga. where he served as the
weapons department leading chief petty
officer and was advanced to senior chief
petty officer. From there, Hudson trans-
ferred to Trident Training Facility (TTF),
Kings Bay Ga. as the strategic training
department leading chief petty officer.
While assigned to TTF he completed his
chief of the boat qualifications.

ON THE HOMEFRONT



Your spouse's detailer:


The ultimate


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


When my husband, Dustin,
mentions his "detailer" (aka:
the person who has the
power to find me a new zip code), I
picture a large man hunched over his
desk with cigar smoke swirling up
toward a bare, flickering light bulb
in the ceiling. He is something like
the Godfather, and he's just as pow-
erful and scary.
Of course, this is only my imagi-
nation. I may never know what my
husband's detailer really looks like
because they are as elusive as my
neighbor's one-eyed cat who slinks
around in the bushes, only popping
out now and then, when my back is
turned.
Why else do you think the mili-
tary keeps these people in places like
Millington, Tenn.? I've only heard of
one couple who knew and eventually
became friends with their detailer,
and I'm not sure -this wasn't "illegal"
in the same way that one can never
know the true identity of someone in
the Witness Protection Program.
From a spouse's perspective, the
detailer is the ultimate boogeyman.
You never see his face, and you prob-
ably don't know his name, but on
any given day, he could change the
course of your life (or at least he could
change your address) for the next 18
months. The detailer might also be
your husband's scapegoat, "Honey,
what could I do? The detailer told me
that an unaccompanied tour in Diego
Garcia was the best option right now."
Dustin wants me to add here (possi-
bly because he is currently up for new
orders) that detailers try very hard

Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Rider Coach Trainer Jack Heric from Marine Corps Base
Quantico, Va., demonstrates making a proper turn in front of MSF Director of Training Ray
Ochs and students of the new Military Sport Bike Rider Course. The course was held last week
for the first time with students at NAS Jacksonville.


By MC2 (AW/NAC) Kaitlyn Patterson
Assistant Editor

AS Jacksonville hosted a trial
u'S version of the Military Sport Bike
L W Rider Course (MSBRC) last week
to help the Motorcycle Safety Foundation
(MSF) and the Naval Safety Center work
out the course curriculum so it can become
a mandatory class for Department of the
Navy (DoN) sports bike riders.
In fiscal year 2007, all DoN motorcycle
related deaths occurred on sports bikes, sin-
gling these riders out as needing more prac-
tice before taking the streets. Secretary of
the Navy Donald Winter implored the Naval
Safety Center to do something to take action
to bring those numbers down. The focus of
the new MSBRC is on the new motorcyclist
with less than a year experience.
"These are all-performance bikes," said
Donald Borkoski, a traffic safety special-
ist from the Naval Safety Center. "These
machines are made like fighter jets. It's
like taking a Cessna pilot, putting them in
an F-18 and telling them to go fight. This
course is designed to match the rider to
their bikes."
The course, will soon be mandatory for all
sports bike riders. All riders must take the
Basic Rider's Course, Experienced Rider's
Course and then they will be eligible to
take the MSBRC. "I think it will be a big
success for the- Navy, as long as people
understand why they are going through
the course and realize it's something they
need instead of something mandated," said
Southeast Region's Lead Supervisor and
NAS Jacksonville Rider Coach Tim Jeror.
It is the hope of MSF instructors that rid-
ers will take all three courses within their
first year of riding. "You don't become a
good bowler from bowling once and you don't
become a biker from riding just once either,"
Jeror added.
Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton host-
ed the first version of the MSBRC. There,
they made adjustments and came to NAS
Jax to run the first test course with stu-
dents. "We've made several small changes,
but it's really just working on the wording,"
said Motorcycle Safety Foundation Director
of Training Ray Ochs. "We haven't changed

any topics or exercises."
"This is an awesome class, I really like
the skill sets," said student AW1 Lloyd Wood
of VP-30.
The course curriculum should be finalized
following this weeklong class and then it
will be submitted to be included in the new
Navy Traffic Safety Program Instruction,
OPNAVINST 5100.12H. When the course
will actually be offered to students is up
to the Navy. "It really depends on how
quickly the Navy can ramp up its facili-
ties and have rider coaches, in place," Ochs
.said. The instructors have one more week
left to work on the course after they return
to Norfolk, Va. then it should be ready to
be taught Navy-wide about a month later.
NAS Jax will be one of the first DoN bases
to offer the course. As soon as the course
curriculum is finalized, Jax instructors will
be ready to teach it.
"NAS Jax has always been a pilot test
base. We have a pretty good reputation here
and we just want to keep it," Jeror said. In
April, Jeror is scheduled to attend a course
making him a rider coach trainer, after
which he will be able to train other rider
coaches to teach the MSBRC.
The Naval Safety Center hopes to imple-
ment the program before the spring rid-
ing season begins, which is why they chose
Jacksonville weather to run the first test
course in.

"Jacksonville was a natural selection because of the
number of riders they have here," Ochs explained, "Plus,
it's warm in the winter time."
Even experienced riders will be required to take the
* course. "They'll be glad they did," Jeror said. "With all the
critiquess we received from this class, the students were
-like, 'Wow! I thought I could ride before I took this course.'
-And that's the case with a lot of people. Many people
'-think that because they've been riding for 40 years, they
" know everything. Well, now they are realizing that they've
been doing things wrong for.40 years."
The Naval Safety Center is also hoping to implement a
mandatory requalification course for experienced riders, to
take place every three years. They also anticipate to some
.day have the basic motorcycle safety course separated into
two different courses for sports bikes and cruisers, instead
,of just having the sports bike course be an add-on to the
original safety course. They also expect to obtain funding
for each base safety program to have their own training
motorcycles to take the beginner's courses on, voiding out
the hassle and confusion of an unlicensed rider trying to
get an unregistered bike on base to use while taking the
course.
The motorcycle safety courses are free and offered on a
regular basis for all active duty, family members, retirees,
-and DoD personnel. For more information on taking the
motorcycle safety course, call NAS Jax Safety Center at

Camp Lemonier staff judge
advocate.
"Our students are genu-
inely interested in learning
English, and they are gifted
with the talent to learn new
languages easily. They were
a bit shy at first, but they
quickly became very friend-
ly and spirited. In one of my
classes, we discussed what
the girls want to be when
they grow up, and many of
them said they wanted to
be doctors."


The enjoyment is a unani-
mous feeling felt by all
the volunteers from Camp
Lemonier supporting the
CJTF-HOA mission to
prevent conflict, promote
regional stability and pro-
tect coalition interests in
order to prevail against
extremism.
"I really enjoy working
with the girls," said LNCS
Alicia Barnes, Camp SJA
staff legalman. "Although
they are less fortunate than
some, their love for each
other and their willingness
to learn is overwhelming.
They have taught me many
things about themselves
and their culture, which
has enabled me to better
understand them. I have
grown close to all of them,
and I will miss them when
I leave."
The center is the larg-
est orphanage in Djibouti
caring for more than 325
young women and children,
ages 2-22.

With the continuing need for
Sailors to serve individual aug-
mentee (IA) and war on terrorism
support assignments, the Navy recognizes
the importance of rewarding these Sailors
for their heroism. One of the rewards for
these Sailors is meritorious advancement.
Since 2005, when the Combat Meritorious
Advancement Program (CMAP) was
announced in NAVADMIN 077/05, more
than 150 Sailors have been advanced for
their actions in combat situations; many of
them for actions during an IA.
"Most advancements approved have been
for actions in Iraq and Afghanistan," said
Lt. Cmdr. Kimberly Pizanti the enlisted
advancement planner for enlisted force-
shaping and advancements.
MA2 Brian Mullis, of Strategic
Communications Wing 1, earned the pro-
motion to petty officer second class through
CMAP, following a successful tour with the
Asadabad Provincial Reconstruction Team
in the Kunar Province of Afghanistan from
May 2006 to May 2007.
"This feels pretty good," Mullis said after
his advancement ceremony. "(CMAP) is a
great program for those guys that go over
there and go above and beyond to put them-
selves in danger. There were times when
it was really dangerous, and things could
have gotten pretty ugly. To go over there
and be recognized like this makes you feel
like it was all worth it."
In order to qualify for the program,
Sailors must currently be in paygrades El
through E5 as the program is not autho-
rized to promote Sailors to E7 or above.

The event will be spon-

The Sailor's command must submit a
request through their chain of command
to be approved by the commanding offi-
cer and sent on to the awarding author-
ity. Full instructions on the requirements
and submission process can be found in
BUPERSINST 1430.16F.
"The packages we receive are absolute-
ly impressive," said Pizanti. "There are
Sailors out there every day going above and
beyond in the most trying of circumstanc-
es. They are responding to urgent situa-
tions with professionalism, maturity, cour-
age, sacrifice and dedication. Package upon
package comes in with stories about ship-
mates placing themselves in harm's way for
their fellow warriors, be they American' or
foreign."
According to Pizanti the Sailors advanced
under this program are being recognized as
leaders, and "they are an example for all to
follow. I personally ain honored to facili-
tate the advancement of these outstanding,
well-deserving Sailors."
Sailors who may deserve advancement
through CMAP and think their command
may not know about the program should
not be afraid to bring it up with their
supervisors.
"Just ask. It can't hurt. Commands need
to be aware of this program and in-theater
commands should already know," Pizanti
added.
Advancement through CMAP does not
limit the Sailor from receiving any addi-
tional awards for their actions.

NMSC SOY selected as Navy Medicine's SOY


By MCI (SW) Nick De La Cruz
Navy Medicine Support Command Public
Affairs

Tavy Medicine Support
Command's (NMSC)
Regional Sailor of the
*Year (SOY), a Naval Hospital
Corps School instructor at Great
Lakes, Ill., was recognized in
Washington, DC, Jan. 24 as the
Bureau of Medicine (BUMED)
Sailor of the Year for 2007.
HM1(SW) Ashley Thomason
was introduced as Navy Medicine's
SOY by Surgeon General of the
*Navy Vice Adm. Adam Robinson
*during the Surgeon General's 2008
Leadership Conference.
"I was very excited, but I was
also in disbelief at the same time,"
Thomason said.
"I still cannot believe that I have
been selected as BUMED SOY.
I thought I had a good chance of


HM1 (SW) Ashley Thomason


being selected, but I was fully pre-
pared to be the first person in line
to shake the hand of whoever won.
The other nominees were simply
outstanding."


The Excel, Ala., native said his
selection as the NMSC and now
BUMED SOY was "a culmination
of my efforts as well as all those
people who have mentored me and
all those subordinates who have
worked so hard for me."
A veteran of only six and a half
years, Thomason first earned SOY
at Naval Hospital Corps School,
an echelon-5 command, where he's
been stationed for 13 months. He
then competed and was selected
at the echelon-4 level for the Navy
Medicine Manpower, Personnel,
Training and Education Command.
Thomason traveled to Jackson-
ville shortly after the new year
to compete against SOYs from
the three other NMSC echelon-
4 commands Navy and Marine
Corps Public Health Center in
Portsmouth, Va.; Naval Medical
Research Center in Silver Spring,


Md.; and Naval Medical Logistics
Command at Fort Detrick, Md.
- as well as the NMSC headquar-
ters SOY here.
He then competed in
Washington, DC, at the BUMED
echelon-2 level against the region-
al SOYs from Navy Medicine
West in San Diego, Navy
Medicine National Capitol Area
in Washington, DC, and Navy
Medicine East in Portsmouth, Va.
He was selected Jan. 23.
Thomason said the experience
gained from previous boards and
efforts by the BUMED selection
board, combined with the coach-
ing and encouragement from the
Naval Hospital Corps School and
NMSC leadership and co-workers,
had him ready for the BUMED
SOY Board.
"The BUMED board was a little
less intense for me," he said. "I


was able to relax a little bit more
for the BUMED board compared
to the previous boards. I think the
board members did a good job of
ensuring that all the candidates
were relaxed during the board."
For the next three months,
Thomason said he'll ponder this
latest accomplishment, take care
of his family, and prepare for one
more SOY board, this time against
the Navy's top Sailors.
"I am very proud to be able to
represent Navy Medicine at the
Vice Chief of Naval Operations
board," he said.
"I know that I am representing
thousands of the finest Sailors in
the Navy. I am also relieved that
the boards are over until April.
Now it is time to relax with my
family and prepare for the arriv-
al of our daughter, who we are
expecting in March."

NMSC research scientist pens book


about life in combat hospital in Iraq


By Larry Coffey
NMSC PAO


wo of the many
staff accomplish-
ments for the
NAS Jacksonville-based
Navy Medicine Support
Command (NMSC) are
deploying Navy Medicine's
new manpower systems
support program, DMHRSi,
and creating and imple-
menting Navy-wide digiti-
zation of medical creden-
tials files.
The flag headquarters
command can now add a
published book to the list.
Dr. Heidi Kraft is a clini-
cal psychologist-turned-
Author who works as a
civilian research scien-
tist at the Naval Health
Research Center (NHRC)
in San Diego. NHRC is one
of NMSC's 10 research and
development commands
and activities located glob-
ally.
And her Jacksonville ties
go beyond NMSC. While on
active duty from 1996-2005,
she served as a lieuten-
ant commander and staff
clinical psychologist in the
Mental Health Department
at Naval Hospital
Jacksonville from January
2003 to March 2005.
Now the deputy program
coordinator for the Navy's
Combat/Operational Stress
Control program, Kraft con-
tinues receiving phone calls
from the media requesting
interviews after nearly five
weeks of publicity follow-
ing the October publication
of her book, "Rule Number
Two: Lessons I Learned in
a Combat Hospital."
A former Medical Service
Corps officer, Kraft served
with the Marines in Iraq.
Her book describes some
of her experiences in Iraq,
where she served as a
combat psychologist from
February to September 2004
while deployed from Naval
Hospital Jacksonville.
She took a leave of
absence from NHRC in
-October and November,
crisscrossing the country
while appearing on nation-
al TV and radio programs
and being interviewed by
reporters from local and
national newspapers.
"What an experience!" she
said. "The first weekend
included a ceremony called
'The Inspire Summit,' co-
hosted by CNN and L'Oreal
Paris. It honored eight
'women who inspire' in
areas of politics, athletics,
business and the battle-
field. I was honored to be
one of the awardees in the
latter category."
When she's in San
Diego, Kraft continues the
Navy medicine work she
loves, assisting Capt. Bob
Koffman, the Navy Surgeon
General's consultant for
combat stress.

ment about half the time

Support Command's research facilities. Saybolt and Clark are nurses.


other half," she said.
Dr. Jerry Larson, Kraft's
department head at NHRC,
said her work in Iraq has
impacted current NHRC
research.
"Dr. Kraft's tour as a
deployed clinician has been
invaluable in helping fellow
scientists understand front-
line psychological health
in human context rather
than textbook examples,"
said Larson, the NHRC
Behavioral Science and
Epidemiology Department
head. "In particular, Dr.
Kraft has tremendously
increased her NHRC col-
leagues' awareness of
deployment issues that are
not as widely documented
as PTSD. For example,
her first-hand accounts of
grief on the battlefront, the
ordeal of family separa-
tion, and the intensity of
bonds between unit mem-
bers have helped NHRC
scientists understand the
conflict in visceral terms
as a powerful and complex
human ordeal."
So, how did Kraft go from
NMSC clinical psychologist
to authoring a book about
health care in a combat
environment?
Kraft wrote her book from
the perspective of a mental
health provider. She served
with a psychiatrist and two
enlisted psychiatric techni-
cians as a member of the
surgical company's four-per-
son Combat Stress Platoon.
The team was responsible
for the mental health care
of the thousands of U.S.
Marines in Western Iraq.
Among Kraft's respon-
sibilities was providing
'cot-side' intervention for
medical patients who were
dying, were pre- or post-
surgery, or who had just
learned that one of their
buddies had died.
It was one of these cot-
side interventions that had
the most profound effect on
Kraft's life. She cared for
a Marine corporal named
Jason Dunham after he suf-


fered a serious head injury
that eventually led to his
death.
Dunham died at the
National Naval Medical
Center Bethesda, Md., with
his parents at his side. Cpl.
Dunham was awarded the
Medal of Honor posthu-
mously Jan. 11 by President
Bush. Kraft attended the
White House ceremony at
the invitation of Dunham's
mother.
"They were the proudest
three days of my life," Kraft
said. "I wore my dress blues
and was the only Sailor
amidst 65 Marines in their
own dress blues. We were
proud to be counted among
a limited number of invited
guests of the family."
It was toward the end of
what Kraft described as
"the brutal, blistering, end-
less summer in Iraq" that
she decided to write a list of
things that were good and
bad about Iraq. That "list"
became a poem and later a
book that took about a year
to complete, not counting
the breaks in between.
"By the time I returned
home, 'The List,' as I called
it, had been literally for-
warded around the world
via e-mail, leading to a bar-
rage of requests for inter-
views and permission to
reprint," Kraft said. "At
first, in my vulnerable
state upon return home, I
found the attention over-
whelming and embarrass-
ing. Then I started hear-
ing from World War Two,
Korean and Vietnam-era
Marines and Sailors, who
told me it made them cry
and made them remember.
I was humbled."
One of those Vietnam-era
Marines was retired Lt. Col.
and Pulitzer Prize-nomi-
nated author Otto Lehrack.
He convinced Kraft that the


experiences in the poem
provided a unique view of
the war and needed tc" be
expanded.
"I didn't realize until it
was totally finished that
it was a book," Kraft said.
"Jason Dunham's mother
was actually the reason I
agreed to submit the manu-
script for publication. She
told me that the mothers of
America do not know that
there are people out there
who are holding their sons'
and daughters' hands when
they are hurt, or in pain, or
afraid. How could I say no
to that?"
Kraft's life has no doubt
changed as a result of "Rule
Number Two: Lessons I
Learned in a combat hos-
pital." Still, it's time spent
with Dunham, the Marines
and the Navy medicine men
and women in Iraq that has
most impacted her life.
"During my deployment,
I witnessed the intensity
with which Sailors and
Marines take care of one
another," Kraft said. "I saw
it in my comrades at the
surgical company, in our
care of our Marine patients,
in the Marines who pro-
vided both physical protec-
tion and mentorship for us
in the unfamiliar environ-
ment of combat, and in the
Marines who trusted and
believed in each other with
such conviction and grieved
for the loss of their friends
with such anguish. I know
it's always been this way.
But seeing it firsthand
changed me as a Sailor,
as a psychologist and as a
person. I will never be the
same again."

Protecting water quality

from urban runoff

From the Environmental Protection Agency

In urban and suburban areas, much of the land
surface is covered by buildings and pavement,
which do not allow rain and snowmelt to soak
into the ground. Instead, most developed areas rely
on storm drains to carry large amounts of runoff
from roofs and paved areas to nearby waterways.
The stormwater runoff carries pollutants such as
oil, dirt, chemicals, and lawn fertilizers directly to-


streams and rivers,

tect surface

and groundwater

built to minimize

The porous
and varied ter-
rain of natural
landscapes like
forests, wetlands,
and grasslands
traps rainwater

S tormwater discharges
associated with indus-
trial activity that occur
at NAS Jacksonville require a
permit issued by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection.
This permit is referred to as
a Multi-Sector Generic Permit
for Stormwater Discharge
Associated with Industrial
Activity. It constitutes autho-
rization to discharge our
stormwater to surface waters
of the state like the St. Johns
River. It is regulated under the
National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System and we
have to comply with certain
terms and conditions.
Through the year, I will be
providing you with public infor-
mation about our stormwater
runoff and what we are doing
about it and what you can do
about it to help maintain a
healthy river. The first article
is "Protecting Water Quality
from Urban Runoff" pub-
lished by the Environmental
Protection Agency on their Web
site.

speed and erosional power as it travels underground.
When this runoff leaves the storm drains and empties
into a stream, its excessive volume and power blast
out streambanks, damaging streamside vegetation
and wiping out aquatic habitat. These increased storm
flows carry sediment loads from construction sites and
other denuded surfaces and eroded streambanks.
They often carry higher water temperatures from
streets, rooftops, and parking lots, which are harm-
ful to the health and reproduction of aquatic life. The

CNATTU chiefs give

'The Porch' a new look

By AEC Ramond Derrick
CNATTU Jax PAO
A group of chiefs from the Center for Naval Aviation
Technical Training Unit (CNATTU) Jax Chief
Petty Officer (CPO) Mess brought their woodwork-
ing skills to the Fouled Anchor Chiefs Club recently to
give what is known as "The Porch" a new look.
AFCM Pat Dronkers, AMCS John Laine, ADCS Terry
King, AMC Will White,
AOC Dave Butts and
retired AECS Pete
Torres joined together
to build and install
new benches along
the entire perime-
ter of the porch. The
project was a much-
needed enhance-
ment for the CPO's AMCS John Laine and retired AECS
porch, as it tends to Pete Torres, owner of Creative
get pretty crowded Remodeling, put the back of the
on Wednesday after- benches into place, while AFCM Pat
noons. Dronkers and ADCS Terry King hold
"I think the project them in place.
turned out better than
we had originally planned. The extra seating area was
much needed and will get good use when our fellow CPOs
from around the base gather for training and mentoring
our young chiefs," said Dronkers.
All supplies for the project were provided by the Morale,
Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Department Facilities
Manager Mark Craig. The idea and design for the proj-
ect was created by White. Torres, owner of Creative
Remodeling, came onboard for the project and volunteered
his time and tools to get the project completed in prepa-
ration for the farewell of NAS Jacksonville's Command
Master Chief CMDCM(SW) Chris Green Jan. 30.
: "None of this would have been possible had it not been
for these chiefs coming together to get the job done. I
would like to thank Mr. Craig for getting us all the materi-
als and to AECS Pete Torres for taking time away from his
business to help get this project completed. Pete brought a
full-length trailer full of tools as did AMC White. If we
would have had more wood, we could have built an entire
new porch with the high dollar tools and skills these guys
brought to the job," added Dronkers, while putting the fin-
ishing touches on the project.

FRA offers free guide to communicating with Congress


From the Fleet Reserve Association
Based on feedback from active duty
and Reserve personnel, the Fleet
Reserve Association (FRA) is offering
a free guide called Communicate With Your
Elected Officials to help Sailors, Marines
and Coast Guardsmen and their families
participate in the legislative process.
Readers of OnWatch, FRA's online publi-
cation (www.fra.org/onwatch) were recent-
ly surveyed on the legislative process. Only


30 percent rated their knowledge of the
process as "good" and to help address this,
FRA offers a free guide to help educate per-
sonnel because it's vital to make sure their
pay, benefits and quality of life concerns
are being heard on Capitol Hill.
In an interview with OnWatch, Master
Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Joe Campa
urged Sailors to be educated about the
system. "Congress is very important to our
military. As American citizens, we all need
to be fully aware of what's going on in our


Congress."
"Senior enlisted leaders have asked that
we make Communicate With Your Elected
Officials available as it is an important
tool for the career enlisted force," said FRA
National Executive Director Joe Barnes.
"They understand that there's no law pro-
tecting pay and benefits and that all mili-
tary personnel are constituents of members
of Congress."
The guide lists contact information
for members of 110th Congress Second


Session, provides a roster of key commit-
tees, explains the proper ways to format
correspondence and defines key election
terms. It also highlights legislative issues
related to military personnel such as pay
increases, benefit parity and Montgomery
GI Bill funding.
To order a free "Communicate With Your
Elected Officials," please send an email
request to bethw@fra.org with your name,
mailing address, rank and branch of ser-
vice or call 800-FRA-1924.

Naval Hospital Jax



invites your feedback


By Marsha Childs
NHJ Marketing

Have you ever wanted to recog-
nize someone who has provided
outstanding customer service at
Naval Hospital Jacksonville or a branch
health clinic (BHC), but didn't know how?
Have you ever wanted to submit a sug-
gestion, but didn't know where? Have
you ever had a question you wanted
answered, but didn't know who to ask? If
you answered "yes" to any of these ques-
tions, the answer is simple-the Customer
Service Representative Program.
The hospital's Customer Relations Office
manages a network of specially trained
customer service representatives (CSRs)
who are located in each hospital depart-
ment and BHC. The CSRs serve as patient
advocates who address comments, concerns
or suggestions within the clinic or depart-
ment. The photos and names of the CSRs
are prominently displayed in all clinical
areas. Patients may also call the Customer


Relations Office at 542-9175 for assistance
or for the name and telephone number of
the CSR in a specific area. Additionally,
Commanding Officer Capt. Raquel Bono
offers a Care Line, 542-CARE and there
are patient comment sheets in the primary
care clinics with comment boxes strategi-
cally located in the outpatient hallways for
your convenience.
If you prefer to go online, the hospital
uses the interactive customer evaluation
(ICE) system, a Web-based tool for collect-
ing patient feedback about health-related
services. It also provides patients with gen-
eral information such as location, hours
of operation and answers to frequently
asked questions. ICE is available on the
hospital's Web site at navalhospitaljax.
med.navy.mil.
It is not surprising that the vast major-
ity of the patient comments recognize
the hospital's outstanding staff for their
professional, friendly and caring service.
Nevertheless, your input is needed so that
we may continually improve our service.


TSP: Improving your financial fitness


By FORCM(EWS/SW) Tony Santino
Navy Expeditionary Combat Command
As the new year gets underway,
many of you are working on resolu-
tions you made for 2008. Our new
year's resolutions vary maybe you're try-
ing to quit smoking, eat better, PT more
frequently or other things to improve your
physical fitness.
Have you thought about how you can
improve your financial fitness this year?
There are number of ways to help your-
self financially. Saving for your future is
an important step toward financial fitness
and one good way to do that is through the
Thrift Savings Plan (TSP).
TSP is a federal government-sponsored
retirement savings and investment plan. It's
similar to a 401(k) plan, offering the same
type of savings and tax benefits that many
private corporations offer their employees.
Participation in TSP is completely option-
al. You contribute to the TSP from your
military pay; the amount you contribute and
the earnings attributable to your contribu-


tions belong to you. You can spread your
contributions among five different growth
funds that range in risk and rate of return.
The amount you receive depends on how
much you contribute and how much those
contributions earn over time. They are
yours to keep no matter how long you serve
in the Navy.
TSP is a tax-deferred fund, meaning
the money you contribute to the account.is
deducted before taxes are assessed. The
money in the account isn't taxed until with-
drawn at retirement.
Remember that TSP is for long-term
retirement savings. There are penalties for
early withdrawals.
So if you're looking short-term savings,
consider U.S. Savings Bonds or a good sav-
ings account.
To find out more at TSP, visit their web-
site at www.tsp.gov.
If you've never made plans to save for your
future, now is a great time to start. Why not
make that resolution and take that first
step toward your financial fitness!

First P-8A Poseidon begins production


By Kristine Wilcox
PMA-290 communications

The U.S. Navy and its Poseidon
industry team marked the
_- beginning of the P-8A produc-
tion at a ceremony hosted by Spirit
A~roSystemsTm of Wichita, Kansas
Dec. 11.
The P-8A is the first Navy aircraft
,to be produced on an existing com-
p;ercial production line.
"It has been a long time coming, but
,the P-8A is a reality," said Capt. Joe
sance aircraft program manager.
"I can't be more proud of the part-
nership between the Navy and
Poseidon industry team. They have
worked hard to design an aircraft
.that will replace the legendary P-
.3C Orion and take our warfighters
into the next generation of maritime
patrol."

P-8A Poseidon


The team loaded the first P-8A
fuselage component into a holding
fixture on the factory floor during the
ceremony attended by Navy program
leadership, Spirit employees and rep-
resentatives from Boeing Commercial
Airplanes and Boeing Integrated
Defense Systems.
The P-8A fuselage, a derivative of
Boeing's Next Generation 737-800,


will be built at. Spirit, then shipped
to Boeing Commercial Airplanes in
Renton, Wash., for wing assemblies.
"Starting production of the first air-
craft is a significant milestone for the
P-8A program as we remain focused
and committed to delivering this crit-
ical weapons system to the fleet on
schedule," said Capt. Mike Moran, P-
8A Poseidon program lead.
The P-8A, designed to replace the
fleet's P-3C aircraft, is a long-range
anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface
warfare, intelligence, surveillance,
reconnaissance aircraft capable of
broad-area maritime operations.
It will be equipped with an
advanced mission system designed
for maximum interoperability in the
future battle space.
Initial operating capability is sched-
uled for 2013, with full operational
capability planned for 2019.


RESCUE: 'Dusty Dogs' rescue shipmates in Persian Gulf


From Page 1

The pilots expeditiously flew
towards the survivor's position to
assist in the recovery of the three
downed aircrew.
The Dusty Dogs assembled a third
pcew, Lt. Cmdr. Brian Bartlett, Lt.
Xjruce Lindsay, AW2 David Harvey
And AW3 Timothy Blevins, to fly
plane guard for the rest of the return-
.hig aircraft and assist the rescue as
needed. The crew launched about 10
minutes later in Dusty 617.
As Dusty 615 headed to the sur-
vivyors, the crew executed their SAR
qcecklist and configured the cabin
for rescue. Dusty 615 arrived on the
scene within minutes and quickly
executed their search. Guided by
Deputy Air Wing Three Commander
Capt. Andrew Lewis flying overhead,
they quickly found the first two air-
crewmen from the F-18F who ejected
together.
."We got on scene and saw two
strobe lights. At that point, I knew it
was real. We went into a hover and
tTie training took over from there,"
noted Garcia.
-"Our training allowed my job in
the cabin to be second nature," added
Attwill, who was the SAR crew chief.
Attwill lowered Garcia down the res-
cue hoist into the water. The cold,
dark night and four foot seas ini-
tially hindered the rescue attempt,
blt Garcia credited his crew chief for
l~lping to keep him going.
--Dusty 614 arrived on scene a few
minutes later and were quickly vec-
tpred onto the third pilot in the water
frpm the other aircraft.
:At this time, Dusty 617 was also
iked to render assistance. Dusty 617
headed towards the other two aircraft,
lnow about 15 nautical miles away.
Fy the time they arrived on the scene,
Garcia had already assisted the pilot
of the F/A-18F into the cabin of Dusty
Q15 and had gone back in the water
after the weapons system operator


(WSO).
A few miles away, Dusty 614
deployed their rescue swimmer,
Graham, down the rescue hoist to exe-
cute the second recovery of the night.
The third helicopter assisted the on
scene commander as a communication
relay for Dusty 614 and Dusty 615.
After performing his disentangle-
ment procedures and assessing the
survivor's physical condition, Graham
signaled to his crew chief for pick up.
The crew chief used verbal controls to
get the pilots to position the helicop-
ter over the rescue swimmer and sur-
vivor. Graham noted that, "the cool-
est part of it was being hoisted back
up to the aircraft with the survivor,
knowing that I just saved his life. He
will make it home to see his wife and
kids. I've never felt a better feeling."
With rescue swimmer and survivor
on board, Dusty 614 departed their
hover and turned back toward the
carrier. As the pilots flew back, the
crew assessed the survivors' state.
Meanwhile Garcia, to cold and
exhausted from fighting the seas to
complete the rescue of the WSO, was
pulled clear of the water by his hoist
operator. After Dusty 615 depart-
ed their hover, Dusty 617 swooped
in behind them to pick up the WSO,
who had been in the water for over
an hour. They quickly deployed their
rescue swimmer, Blevins, and within
minutes stationed themselves overtop
for a pickup. Harvey reeled the two
of them up and secured the rescue
station so the helicopter could depart
and fly back to the carrier.
All three survivors had mild hypo-
thermia but were otherwise in good
condition. Graham noted afterwards
not to, "let the fact of where you are,
what just happened or any other fear
break your concentration from what
needs to be done right now getting
this guy out of the water safely."
Dusty 614 arrived back aboard the
carrier first. The medical staff anx-
iously awaited their arrival and stood


ready to aid the survivors. Dusty 615
and Dusty 617 arrived a few minutes
later and quickly handed their survi-
vors over to the medical staff.
"I am eternally grateful for the
efforts of not only the specific air-
crew in the helicopter and the SAR
swimmer, but the many individu-
als involved at all levels in my safe
return aboard the ship," said Lt.
Cmdr. Timothy Krippendorf, pilot of
the F/A-18F. "I would like to thank
all the folks that work hard each
day at HS-7 to make that capability
seem like business as usual. It is not
just the crew in the helicopter that
made this rescue. The squadron's
ability to provide three helicopters in
a very short time is a testament to
the Maintenance Department and its
cadre of highly skilled and focused
professionals."
All the aircrews attribute their
success in the air to their training.
Robertson sums it up pretty well,
"Ninety-eight percent of my job is
training. The government pays me
to train for jobs that hopefully we will
never have do. However, if things go
wrong then we are willing and able to
complete a job that most people would
not be able to perform. The night we
were called, there was a lot of adrena-
lin flowing until we took off. Once
airborne, the training kicked in and it
was time to go to work. It was a very
good feeling once we had our survi-
vor onboard and knew he was out of
harm's way and that all our training
had paid off."
Through good crew coordination,
steadfast training, and solid NATOPS
procedures these crews were able to
perform three very challenging res-
cues. Peterson noted his confidence
in all the pilots and aircrew in the
squadron saying, "Anyone of the pilots
or aircrewmen in HS-7 could have and
would have performed the rescue just
as successfully as we did. We were
just the ones called upon to go out
there and do the job that night."

HUDSON: New CMC arrives

From Page I

Hudson then graduated from the Senior Enlisted
Academy, Newport, R.I. with honors.
This led to follow-on orders as chief of the boat, USS
Wyoming (SSBN 742) (Blue) homeported out of Kings
Bay Ga. As chief of the boat, he was the first recipi-
ent of the Naval Submarine League Frank A. Lister
Outstanding Chief of the Boat Award. He was also
advanced to master chief petty officer.
Hudson was then selected to serve as command
master chief, Submarine Group Ten, Kings Bay, Ga.
In this capacity, his area of responsibility included
eight major shore commands, eight submarines and
16 submarine crews. His last sea tour was as com-
mand master chief, USS The Sullivans (DDG 68),
homeported at NS Mayport. During this tour he was
designated surface warfare specialist.
"I've been on submarines most of my naval career
and wanted to do something completely different for
my last tour. I heard this job was coming open and
applied and here I am. I'm thrilled to be at NAS Jax,"
said Hudson. "One of the first things that hit me when
I arrived was that this is definitely an atmosphere of
team players. Everyone here is all about supporting
the mission, which is taking care of our Sailors and
making sure they are ready to do their mission when
they are deployed."
"And, with all the new construction here, there is a
lot of positive energy. So many other bases are wor-
ryed about being shut down, but NAS Jax has con-
struction projects everywhere. It's really great," he
continued.
As for his goals, Hudson is looking to his peers for
their continued support. "I want to continue to engage
the senior enlisted leadership here and continue to
push the concept that we run the day-to-day routine.
We run the evolution so our officers can concentrate
on the big picture items and keep us focused on sup-
porting the warfighter efforts," explained Hudson. "I
would also like to continue to push for an increased
level of cooperation between us and the community. I
think it's great now, but I think it can be even better."
"I plan to continue the work that's been done here
and follow the road that has been paved by my pre-
decessors. Master Chiefs Chuck Lawson and Chris
Green started some great programs here," continued
Hudson. "It's like polishing the cannonball, just mak-
ing sure we continue in the direction that's already
been set."
As the new CMC, Hudson wants the NAS Jax team
to know he has an open door policy and open to sug-
gestions on how to improve the quality of life for the
Sailors and their families here. "My door is always
open, but I strongly recommend our junior Sailors
engage their chain of command with any questions
and concerns they have. If they don't utilize their
chain of command, the information won't get up to
us," he emphasized. "I am not able to talk to each
individual Sailor on base here on a day-to-day basis,
so talk to those who you do interact with every day.
Trust your chiefs and division officers to ensure the
right information is getting to us and.that we are get-
ting the right information to them."
In his free time, Hudson enjoys spending time with
his wife, Lisa, riding his Harley and jet ski and scuba
diving. He is also working on his college education. "I
plan to complete my degree while I'm stationed here
and then teach school when I retire in three years,"
he said. "We plan to stay in Jacksonville and I plan
to become a high school history teacher for my next
career. I think between my professional goals and per-
sonal goals, this tour is going to be quite busy for the
next three years but I look forward to it."

The tax man


cometh...

By Beth Wiruth
Special Contributor _

Don't know if you are like me but
shortly after the Christmas holidays I
start thinking about tax preparation.
No, I am not a CPA who loves the sound
of numbers crunching, just a woman
thinking about that tax refund and how to
spend it.
There are many resources available to
military families for tax preparation. For
those who do their own tax preparation
you can download a free copy of Intuit's
TurboTax to prepare your federal taxes and
depending upon where you are filing you
may qualify for free state filing software
as well. To download this software go to
www.taxfreedom.com. MilitaryOneSource
is offering a free download of H&R Block's
TaxCut Basic Online. Like TurboTax,
TaxCut Basic is a step-by-step process
that includes all forms and documentation


SPOUSE'S

PERSPECTIVE

including those relating to deployment,
relocation and much more.
11' you hive a more complicated tax pack-
age or prefer to turn to the experts there
is free support available for you right on
base called the Volunteer Income Tax
Assistance Program (VITA). Service mem-
bers and their families can get free tax
preparation or advice and assistance on
base. The VITA volunteers are trained and
equipped to address most tax issues includ-
ing military tax issues such as Earned
Income Tax Credit (EITC) and relocation,
deployment and especially combat zone tax
benefits. And, they are able to electroni-
cally submit your return to the Internal
Revenue Service (IRS).
Taking advantage of this free service can
relieve you of the big hassle and frustra-
tions some experience with do-it-yourself

TRICARE can help make resolutions a reality


From TRICARE Management Activity
N eed to save money? Tobacco still
turning you oh? Fighting the bat-
tle of the bulge? It seems year
after year, those are among the hot topics
on most people's New Year's resolution
lists.
This year, let TRICARE help.
Saving money on regularly used pre-
scriptions got a lot easier in 2007. The new
Member Choice Center (MCC) opened to
rave reviews as beneficiaries found they
,could save a bundle on medications and
,have them delivered by switching from
retail pharmacies to the safe, convenient
TRICARE Mail Order Pharmacy (TMOP).
Converting from retail to mail order can
be accomplished 24/7 via the Web at www.
express-scripts.com/TRICARE, or simply
call 1-877-363-1433 to speak to a patient
care advocate. The online MCC has proven
surprisingly popular with beneficiaries, the
majority switching over with the click of
the mouse. In either case, the MCC patient
care advocates contact physicians to have
prescriptions switched over to TMOP.
Take regular heartburn medications?
The copay on Nexium was recently lowered
to $3, and a two-year test of over-the-coun-
ter (OTC) medications allows beneficiaries
to try Prilosec OTC for free. More money
saved.
Achieving a healthier lifestyle through
activities such as exercise, losing weight
,and quitting tobacco can help save money
too for beneficiaries and for the military
health care system.
TRICARE's ongoing "Healthy Choices for
Life" campaign is aimed at raising aware-
ness of the problems of obesity, smoking
and alcohol abuse. Statistically, service
members smoke or chew tobacco at higher


rates than the civilian population. Quitting
tobacco is a New Year's resolution that will
pay off in healthy dividends and now there
is help through the Department of Defense
(DoD educational campaign "Quit Tobacco.
Make Everyone Proud." Visit the new Web
site www.ucanquit2.org where users can
develop a personalized plan for quitting,
play games, listen to podcasts, connect
to on-line cessation programs and even
chat with a trained cessation counselor,
seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30
a.m. EST. TRICARE's "Kick Butts" multi-
media feature on the Press Room at www.
tricare.mil has even more helpful informa-
tion, links and a list of some of the smoking
cessation programs offered by the services.
Cutting down on alcohol use is also a
great New Year's "get healthy" resolution.
"That Guy" is a DoD funded peer-to-peer
campaign to increase awareness of the
problems associated with overindulging.
The campaign is designed to bring home
the message by using humor to reach the
target audience young service members.
Check out the award-winning Web site at
www.thatguy.com.
TRICARE is also helping beneficiaries
keep "get healthy" resolutions by encour-
aging clinical preventive services such as
flu shots and regular screenings for colon,
prostate and breast cancer. TRICARE
also now covers the Shingles vaccine for
beneficiaries 60 and older and Magnetic
Resonance Imaging (MRI) screening for
women who are at high risk of developing
breast cancer.
Whether it's increasing savings on pre-
scription medications through TMOP or
reducing the risk of illness through preven-
tive screenings, just remember it's a brand
new year so make a "healthy choice for
life."


Naval Safety Center sponsors poster contest


From the Naval Safety
Center

aval safety posters
are relevant, time-
ly and sometimes
humorous reminders of the
hazards we face each day
in our professional and per-
sonal lives. Graphic artists
at the Naval Safety Center
work hard to stay on top
of trends and serve fleet
needs with these posters.
However, creativity exists
throughout the Navy and
Marine Corps and often the
,best ideas for posters come
from the deckplates.
Recognizing this, the
Naval Safety Center
announces the first fleet-
wide safety poster contest.
Individuals or groups of
Sailors and Marines are
encouraged to put their
artistic skills to use to help
keep their shipmates safe.
Potential topics are
unlimited, but may include
motorcycle safety, flight
deck hazards, occupational
safety and health concerns,
hearing loss prevention,
recreational risk man-


agement and many more.
Poster designs should be
attention-grabbing and
imaginative. In particular,
young Sailors and Marines
are encouraged to create
designs that will appeal to
their peers.
Posters selected by a
panel at the Naval Safety
Center will be mass pro-
duced and distributed to
the fleet. The contributors'
name and command will
appear on each poster.
The deadline for the post-


er competition is Feb. 15.
To enter, submit a printout
of the poster design along
with a CD containing the
electronic file to: Naval
Safety Center, ATTN:
Public Affairs Officer, 375 A
Street, Norfolk, VA 23511.
All safety pros, creative
artists and interested ship-
mates are encouraged to
enter their submissions. It's
a great creative outlet and
more importantly, it offers
the potential to reduce mis-
haps and save lives.

STORMWATER: Tips


for protecting water


quality from urban runoff


From Page 8

loss of infiltration from urbanization may
also cause profound groundwater changes.
Although urbanization leads to great increas-
es in flooding during and immediately after
wet weather, in many instances it results
in lower stream flows during dry weather.
Many native fish and other aquatic life can-
not survive when these conditions prevail.
Increased pollutant loads
Urbanization increases the variety and
amount of pollutants carried into streams,
rivers, and lakes. The pollutants include:
Sediment
Oil, grease, and toxic chemicals from
motor vehicles
Pesticides and nutrients from lawns
and gardens
Viruses, bacteria, and nutrients from
pet waste and failing septic systems
Road salts
Heavy metals from roof shingles, motor
vehicles, and other sources
Thermal pollution from dark impervi-
ous surfaces such as streets and rooftops
These pollutants can harm fish and wild-
life populations, kill native vegetation, foul
drinking water supplies, and make recre-
ational areas unsafe and unpleasant.
Managing urban runoff: What
homeowners can do
To decrease polluted runoff from paved
surfaces, households can develop alter-
natives to areas traditionally covered by
impervious surfaces. Porous pavement
materials are available, for driveways and
sidewalks, and native vegetation and mulch
can replace high maintenance grass lawns.
Homeowners can use fertilizers sparingly
and sweep driveways, sidewalks and roads
instead of using a hose. Instead of dispos-
ing of yard waste, they can use the materi-
als to start a compost pile. And homeown-
ers can learn to use integrated pest man-
agement to reduce dependence on harmful
pesticides.
In addition, households can prevent pol-
luted runoff by picking up after pets and
using, storing and disposing of chemicals
properly. Drivers should check their cars
for leaks and recycle their motor oil and
antifreeze when these fluids are changed.


Drivers can also avoid impacts from car
wash runoff (e.g., detergents, grime, etc.)
by using car wash facilities that do not
generate runoff.
Households served by septic systems should
have them professionally inspected atid
pumped every three to five years. They should
also practice water conservation measures to
extend the life of their septic systems.
Controlling impacts
from new development
Developers and city planners should
attempt to control the volume of runoff
from new development by using low impdat
development, structural controls and pol-
lution prevention strategies. Low impact
development includes measures that con-
serve natural areas (particularly sensi-
tive hydrologic areas like riparian buffers
and infiltrable soils); reduce development
impacts; and reduce site runoff rates by
maximizing surface roughness, infiltratidfi
opportunities, and flow paths.
Controlling impacts
from existing development
Controlling runoff from existing urban
areas is often more costly than controlling
runoff from new developments. Economic
efficiencies are often realized through
approaches that target "hot spots" of runoff
pollution or have multiple benefits, sudih
as high-efficiency street sweeping (which
addresses aesthetics, road safety and
water quality). Urban planners and others
responsible for managing urban and sub;-
urban areas can first identify and imple-
ment pollution prevention strategies atid
examine source control opportunities. They
should seek out priority pollutant reduction
opportunities, then protect natural areas
that help control runoff, and finally begfi
ecological restoration and retrofit activities
to clean up degraded water bodies.
Local governments are encouraged to
take lead roles in public education efforts
through public signage, storm drain mafr5-
ing, pollution prevention outreach caim-
paigns, and partnerships with citizen
groups and businesses. Citizens can help
prioritize the clean-up strategies, volunteer
to become involved in restoration efforts,
and mark storm drains with -approved
"don't dump" messages.

DeCA's got recycling in the bag


By Lynda Valentine
and Caroline Williams
Defense Commissary Agency
Reusable cloth bags
are fast replacing
"paper or plastic" as
the choice for commissary
customers. The reusable
bags, which cost 70 cents
each, were introduced into
commissaries in October
and since then custom-
ers have purchased nearly
270,000 at stores world-
wide.
While commissary shop-
pers have long saved green
of the legal tender variety
- to the tune of 30 percent
or more annually on their
grocery bills they can now
conserve green of another


very useful kind trees.
"Commissaries have long
been good stewards of tax-
payer funds," said Rick
Page, DeCA's acting direc-
tor, "and with reusable
shopping bags, we're apply-
ing the same sort of thrifty
approach to how we use the
earth's natural resources."
DeCA's reusable bag is
made of sturdy mesh, sewn
together from 100 percent
polypropylene. They are
strong enough to hold 30
pounds of groceries and
approximately three-quar-
ters of the bulk amount of
a paper bag. The reusable
bags are machine washable
and can be recycled when
no longer usable. Customers


can find these bags on racks
near the checkout at their
local commissary.
Reusing bags saves the
commissary money, which
helps preserve the benefit
by keeping operating costs
down costs that are paid
with taxpayer dollars. In
fiscal 2007, commissaries
spent a total of $20,635,800
on plastic and paper bags
combined. If just one-tenth
of all commissary shoppers
switched to reusable cloth
bags, the agency would save
more than $2 million annu-
ally.
Customers always have
the option of using their own
reusable cloth bags. In addi-
tion, all commissaries allow


customers to bring clean,
sturdy paper or plastic bags
to the commissary for reuse
in bagging their groceries;
however, all recycled bags
must be clean and in good
repair or the bagger cannot
accept them. Whether you
provide your own bags or
return to your commissary
with your DeCA cloth bags,
just present them to the
bagger immediately before
bagging begins.
Product availability and
program guidelines may
differ at overseas commis-
saries. For more informa-
tion about your commissary
benefit, visit DeCA's Web
site at http://www.commis-
saries.com.

LAP BAND: TRICARE now covering procedure


From Page 14


or gastroplasty, lap-band surgery is only
for those suffering morbid obesity. In med-
ical terms, that means their body weight
is 100 pounds over ideal weight for their
height and bone structure, and their
weight is associated with severe medical
conditions known to have higher mortality
rates. Body weight that is more than twice
the ideal weight for the person's height
and bone structure may also indicate mor-
.bid obesity.


In addition, TRICARE will cover the
surgery if a patient has had an intestinal
bypass or other surgery for obesity and,
because of complications, requires a second
surgery.
Details of the coverage are available in
the TRICARE policy manual, which benefi-
ciaries can view online at http://manuals.
