'Military


Saves' Week


starts Sunday
By Bruce Moody
Commander, Navy Installations Command Public Affairs


4 ] M military Saves" Week is being observed
I/ throughout the fleet Feb. 24 through March 2.
The campaign is a week of intense focus on
taking financial action and making a commitment to save
money. In 2008, the Navy will focus specifically on saving
for emergencies, reducing debt to improve personal finan-
cial readiness and promoting youth financial responsibil-
ity.
This initiative is part of the Military Saves Campaign, a
year-round social marketing campaign to persuade, moti-
vate and encourage Department of Defense employees
to save money and reduce consumer debt. The campaign
reaches out to service members, spouses, youth and civil-
ian employees.
"We're stepping up our efforts to increase individual
and family financial fitness by providing additional educa-
tional programs at our Fleet and Family Support Centers
and by working directly with command financial special-
ists to provide information and personalized assistance in
addressing unit financial readiness," said David DuBois,
deputy manager for Fleet and Family Support Programs,
Commander, Navy Installation Command.
"We have increased the number of accredited financial
counselors in the Fleet and Family Support Centers avail-
able to provide one-on-one help in developing realistic and
achievable financial plans," DuBois said.
"We're increasing the involvement of our partner agen-


The NAS Jacksonville Youth
Activities Center (YAC) has
earned their accreditation from
the National AfterSchool Association
(NAA). This accreditation will remain
in effect until November 2011 at
which time the center will be reeval-
uated.
"By receiving this NAA accredita-
tion means that our program is at a
very high quality. The remarks the
inspectors gave us were exceptional.
They only had wonderful things to say
about us and we passed 100 percent
marks," said NAS Jax YAC Director
Megan Elliot. "Accreditation leads to
a better trained workforce, leading to
greater stability and ultimately better
outcomes for children and youth. The
accreditation process also promotes a
team approach to program improve-
ment."
To earn NAA accreditation, the NAS
Jax YAC went through an extensive
self-study process, measuring the pro-
gram and its services. "We developed
a team to observe all aspects of the
program. The observations included
36 rating questions," continued Elliot.
"After the observations were com-
pleted, the team and staff looked at the
scores and decided what needed to be
improved. After coming up with goals
and making improvements, we had
another observation period. This pat-
tern continued until we felt we were
ready for the inspectors to come out."
The accreditation process also
included completing a survey to gain
feedback on the Before and After
School program.
"We surveyed parents, children and
staff to get a variety of input. The
whole process took about a year and a
half," added Elliot.

your financial fitness."
As part of Military Saves Week, installation leadership
and will focus on encouraging Sailors to take action and
make a commitment to save money. They will work with a
variety of installation resources to motivate military mem-
bers and their families to make a commitment to save by
offering special events, classes and resources that focus on
individual financial fitness.
The campaign is a command initiative in which leader-
ship can work to create a culture that encourages savings
and financial readiness. Through the campaign, leader-

Agreement helps

Sailors with more

educational opportunities~
MC2(AW/SW) Marcel Barbeau
Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs

n 2003, Commander, Navy Region Southeast
(CNRSE) and Florida Community College
Jacksonville (FCCJ) signed an agreement that
provided CNRSE Sailors with greater educational
opportunities. After five years, an amendment was
signed Feb. 15 and included even more opportunities
for Sailors.
The original agreement gave Sailors the ability
to receive earned college credit for completing envi-
ronmental management courses offered by CNRSE
Port Operations Oil and Hazardous Substance Spill'.
Response Training Cell (OHS). CNRSE and FCCJ are>
now adding new classes into that agreement.
"Before we decided to do the training ourselves, we-:-
studied to see how much it would cost for FCCJ to give>.,
the class. We also went to local contractors to see how
much it.would cost," said Chris Christofferson, CNRSE's .
port operations director. "During the process, it dawned
on us we're teaching the same courses they're teaching 1,
at FCCJ. Why don't we make it more of an incentive to
take the course? So now, not only do Sailors get a cer-
tificate, but they also get college credit."
The courses train Sailors how to respond to hazard-
ous waste spills and familiarize themselves with the
rules and regulations mandated by the Occupation
Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
"We are adding the security boat training to it, as
well as the four incident command system courses to
the amendment," said Amy Lee, the oil and hazardous
substance spill response training program manager
at CNRSE. "We are developing the Navy's first har- :
bor boat security training course. The course teaches
basic boat coxswain skills and how to safely operate
the harbor security boats. This not only earns Sailors -
college credits, but it also helps the Navy reduce main-
tenance costs, injuries and accidents."
According to Christofferson, the safety of the Sailors,
as well as the protection of the environment, is para-
mount in what they do."This helps prevent toxicologi-
cal exposure to different chemicals. That's the first
and most important thing, the safety of our Sailors,"
said Christofferson.
The extra incentive is very important in securing the
path of many Sailors' futures, in not only their career
with the Navy, but their future after the Navy.
"Everyone needs a college education to. help their
advancement, so that's just another way the Navy is
helping Sailors," added Lee. "I also believe it's impor-
tant for us to help the Sailors when they transfer from
the military to civilian life, preparing for a future
career by earning a college degree."
"What a lot of the Sailors find after they spend four
years in the Navy and want an environmental job... if
they've finished these courses, instead of making $10 an
hour, they could earn $30 an hour," said Christofferson.

ON THE HOMEFRONT


at least their 1


Sfew weeks ago, a friend
knocked on my door and hand-
ed me a ziplock bag filled with
goo. Attached to the bag was a print-
out titled "Amish Friendship Bread."
"You just feed this batter and then
'cook it to make bread," the friend
"said.
: .-It sounded easy enough. And with a
xfame like "Amish Friendship Bread,"
h aw could it be anything but? For
the-first few days, the goo-filled bag
,sat innocently enough on my kitch-
-en counter. The batter in the bottom
fflled only about one-eighth of the bag.
I -wondered how such a tiny amount of
:batter would ever make two loves of
read, plus four more bags of goo, as
:tlie instructions said it would.
-On the fourth day, I added milk,
Siigar and flour to the batter.
T""Are you sure I still leave this
thing out on the counter?" I asked my
friend. "Even though it has milk in it

:_i"Yep," she said, a tinge of delight
in her voice, as if she was keeping a
secret, like waiting for me to sit on a
,whoopee cushion.
-:-The day after I added milk, sugar
and flour, and continued to leave the
-bag on the kitchen counter, despite
-my better judgment and my moth-
.r's voice in the my head telling me
tod always put the milk back in the
refrigerator, I woke to the smell of
beer. Fermented beer. In the kitchen,
the goo was growing. The ziplock bag
was so full of air, it looked as bloated
and gassy as my stomach feels after
Thanksgiving dinner. Overnight, the
batter had doubled in size. Or, if you'd


rather, it had procreated.
"It's like a beast," I said out loud.
My children looked scared.
"Stop feeding it," Owen, 5, said.
"We don't really need bread, do we?"
asked Ford, 7.
I let air out of the bag and reassured
the children that the batter would not
take over our house, even though I
wasn't entirely sure of that myself. I
was beginning to see how the "beast"
would eventually make two loaves of
bread and four extra bags of beast-
lings.
The instructions warned that after
making the bread, if you failed to keep
a beastling for yourself, you would
have to wait for a friend to give one
back to you, because "only the Amish
know how to make the starter." This
seemed like a vague threat to me.
The beast--I mean, batter--had been
passed down from neighbor to neigh-
bor for hundreds of years. If I broke
the chain, I feared that something
awful--something like receiving the
Amish Unfriendly Bread next time--
would happen.
By the end of the week, I found
myself very afraid of the growing bat-
ter on my kitchen counter. I eyed. it
when I walked into the room, and
I never turned my back on it. Like
a dragon curled up next to my cof-
fee pot, the bag spit out air, hissed,
and made bad smells. I wasn't sure I
wanted to make bread with it.
Finally the day came when I could
unleash the beast and add normal
things like eggs, vanilla, and cinna-
mon to it, which I hoped would mask
the smell. When I was done baking, I
had two delicious loaves of bread and
four bags of beastlings to disperse. It


bread is)
occurred to me then that if the Amish
ever wanted to kill off an entire spe-
cies of non-Amish people slowly over
time, they could probably do it with
this never-ending bread that people
willingly--gleefully, even--pass on to
their neighbors, four at a time.
Dustin took the extra bags of batter
and one loaf of bread to the squadron
and dared people to take it home to
their wives. I suspect it was one of
the first (and last) times something
Amish came onto a Navy base. If the
batter could speak, which over time it
may learn to do, I think it would have
protested and called itself a conscien-
tious objector.
Kathy, who works in the same office
with Dustin, was up for the challenge
and took a beastling home. Over the
next week, I received several panicked
calls from her. "Are you sure I leave it
on the counter? Will it explode? Is it
supposed to smell like this?"
The cycle continued, as the Amish
have intended it to do for hundreds of
years.
Yesterday I got another call from
Kathy. She had made the bread, pro-
duced four beastlings, and sent one to
her military-spouse daughter in North
Carolina, who, like so many before
her, was afraid at first, but carried on
and made the bread anyway. She sent
a loaf to her husband in Afghanistan
and passed four bags of goo on to her
military-spouse friends.
Which is to say, the batter contin-
ues to grow and reproduce, and now
it has infiltrated the military. Don't,
open your door; you could be next.

Hey MoneyMan!
I just got my $2,100
income tax refund and
I was wondering what I
should do with this money.
We have a few bills to pay
and I would like to buy a
few things, but I think I
should have around $800
left over. Any investment
ideas?
MonevMan Sez:
A $2,100 refund! Wow!
That's great! Or is it? On
the surface, getting a big
tax refund seems like a
good deal, but usually, the
bigger the refund, the big-
ger the mistake.
Why did you get so much
money back? If you are
like most of us it is because
you paid too much in and
effectively gave an interest-
free loan to Uncle Sam. So
what's the big deal?
Say you are 25 years old
and you get a $1,200 refund
each year for 40 years.
Your refunds would total

$48,000. Instead, you could
invest the $100 monthly
overpayment and, with a
10 percent return, you
would accumulate around
$559,000 over that same
period of time.
Put the money in a Roth
IRA, and the growth is tax-
free. You may also want to
consider starting a Thrift
Savings Plan (TSP).
I recommend you go to
your Personnel Support
Detachment and change
your W-4 today so that you
cover your taxes, but reduce
your refund.
My recommendation is
that you pay your bills, pay
off any credit card debt you
may have and then invest
your any extra money in a
Roth IRA or a TSP.

MoneyMan at 778-0353.

By finding gaps in

instructors traded in their

to gather volunteers when
they are needed.
"I am really pleased with
our instructors stepping up
to volunteer their time to
the program and the people

provides for. I know how
hard it is to juggle instruct-

time to volunteer for off-
base projects like this. The
effort to achieve this many

The "Tridents" of HS-3 recently
achieved a significant milestone
with the reenlistment of some of the
squadron's most talented Sailors. During
the last four months, the squadron has
reenlisted 16 Sailors and disbursed more
than $300,000 in selective reenlistment
bonuses (SRB).
"I think that SRBs are a great incentive,"
said NC1(AW/SW) Gwendolyn King, HS-3
command career counselor. "Staying in
the Navy offers job security, health ben-
efits, and long term career opportunities.
The Navy is the true beneficiary of this
program. The level of expertise resident in
our experienced sailors is essential to the
Navy and fleet readiness."
AW2(AW) Casey Peet was one of the
recent reenlistees. An aircrewman and
rescue swimmer, he reenlisted for six years
and received a bonus of more than $40,000.
"I reenlisted because I enjoy my job and I
am looking forward to being an instructor
on shore duty," Peet said. "The bonus is
great because it will allow my wife and I to
travel to Europe."
Although the SRB is a great reward for
service, it certainly wasn't the only reason
the Sailors took the oath. A03 Raymond
Jenkins said, "I reenlisted because it was
a great option and I am proud to serve my
country. I am not from a military town,
but when I go home people shake my hand


and thank me for my service."
"It was the best present ever, especially
for my family. I now have zero debt and
a comfortable amount in savings," added
AW2(AW) Kevin Levesque, who received
his bonus on Christmas Eve.
HS-3 also received the Commander, Fleet
Forces Command Retention Excellence
Award for fiscal year 2007. This award,
formerly known as the "Golden Anchor
Award," is given to commands that sus-
tain superior levels of personnel reten-
tion during the fiscal year. "It is essential
to the success of our squadron and the
Navy that talented and motivated Sailors
remain in the navy. These men and women
will become our future leaders," remarked
HS-3 Commanding Officer Cmdr. Mark
Truluck.
HS-3 is currently participating in their
inter-deployment readiness cycle with
Carrier Airwing Eight. The squadron has
most recently been embarked on board
USS Theodore Roosevelt for flight deck
certification and airwing carrier landing
qualifications.

bands so every band looks and operates the same.
Becoming part of a Navy band is not an easy feat. Those
interested in the musician program must first meet with the
recruiter to make sure they can qualify to come in the Navy
and then set up an official audition. Any military band or
musician recruiter can hold auditions. They assess what they
hear and forward all the information to NPC where the final
decision is made.
After recruit training, applicants approved for enlistment
as a Navy musician (MU) attend the Navy School of Music
in Little Creek, Va. The 21-week basic course of instruction
includes classes in theory, ear training, private instrumental
instruction and rehearsal in marching, concert and stage
bands. After graduation, MUs are assigned to a naval activ-
ity, ashore or afloat, as a member of a Navy band.
"Our job is one of the few rates in the Navy where you have
to be able to do the job before you come in," said Malmgren.
"The Navy can take other folks and train them in 'A' school
to give them the skills necessary to perform in their rating,
but you can't with our job because it's an artisan craft that
takes years to develop. You have to be able to play to a certain
ability before you can be accepted as an MU and go to the "A"
school."
The Navy Music Program is composed of traditional band
instrumentation, vocalist/entertainers, and rhythm players
(electric bass, guitar, piano, and percussion).
Navy Band Southeast is comprised of six performing units.
The band also has solo guitarists, pianists and vocalists who
perform year round. Solo vocalists traditionally sing the
national anthem at opening ceremonies.
"The best thing about being at this particular band is that
everyone knows what they need to do and does it," said MU2
Gabrielle Herbert. "We don't need to be micromanaged or dis-
ciplined because we all do what we are supposed to do which
takes away a lot of stress."
Navy Rock Band "Pride" is made up of eight performers.
Pride plays a variety of Top-40 rock and roll music, entertain-
ing audiences at local military events and public concerts
throughout the Southeast Region.
The Navy Band Southeast's
Jazz Ensemble performs the
many different popular styles .
of jazz. They have enter-
tained thousands of audiences

"I want people to come out with their family and lawn
chairs to enjoy the music," said Collins. "Music is such a pow-
erful tool and I think it enhances the Navy's mission at large
and is a universal language. 1 have seen it warm the hearts of
people that I couldn't speak a word to but once we play, they
start smiling and laughing and all of the sudden we create a
dialog."

Two decades of contribution to the HS helicopter community


By Lt. Allen Langston
HS-5 PAO

A 11 pilots and aircrew in
the helicopter community
:A understand the term CSI.
No, it is not referring to that pop-
ular television show about the
forensic crime scene investiga-
tors.
Instead it refers to the contract
simulator instructors, or more
commonly known as "sim instruc-
tors."
As pilots, we were introduced
to them as soon as we began
.flight school, and well before we
:actually flew a military aircraft.
:And to this day, they remain an
,essential part of our training and
,a resource of vast experience,
expertise and knowledge.
However, there is a cadre of
:seven special CSIs who have
,undoubtedly contributed as much
:as anyone to the helicopter com-
Imunity over the last 20 years.
' They are Jack Donnelly, Brock
'Jewell, Bob Brugh, Carl Saviola,
Jack Giannini, Doug Laniel and
Del Martins. Four of the seven,
Donnelly, Saviola, Jewell and
irugh will have been there 20
rears this July.
- These men are all East Coast
;CSIs at NAS Jacksonville with
similar backgrounds. The group

includes three former pilots, three
retired senior chiefs and one
retired master chief. All of them
spent time in the HS community
with time in the H-3, H-60, or
both.
One even had H-2 LAMPS time.
Together they have more than
120,000 hours of instructional
simulator time and more than 225
years of combined aviation expe-
rience. They have also trained


pilots and aircrew from Spain,
Italy, England, Thailand, Japan,
Australia, Brazil, Argentina and
Egypt.
All presidential helicopter pilots
(H-3 and H-60) were also trained
by CSIs at NAS Jacksonville until
the year 2000. From a two-year
period between 2002-04 they also
trained all U.S. Coast Guard H-


60 pilots because
were down.


their simulators


Moreover, because of their focus
on tactics, Naval Strike and Air
Warfare Center (NSAWC) also
uses the Jacksonville CSIs to help
teach the Seahawk Weapons and
Tactics Instructor course.
Another unique aspect about
the instructors in Jacksonville is
that because they no longer ser-
vice a fleet readiness squadron
they can focus on tactics and cut-
ting edge equipment with the
intention of improving the com-
munity by improving the training
and the technology designed for
the H-60F/H.
The CSI program was started
in July 1988 as a 90-day trial
program by the Navy and is as
strong as ever. When asked why
he thought the program has been
so successful, Donnelly said,
"Because of the standardization
in training. The small office and
low turnover has allowed me the
ability to maintain a high degree
of standardization when training
my instructors and those stan-
dardized procedures have been
passed on to the pilots and air-
crew that have received our train-
ing."
The contribution of the CSIs
extends beyond the training they
provide. Jewell has become a sub-
ject matter expert on lightweight


torpedoes including the Mk-46, 50
and 54. Because of his prowess
in this area, Jewell is a regular
in Fallon, Nev. at NSAWC where
he gives lectures to educate Navy
pilots and aircrew. "Brock knows
more about the lightweight torpe-
does and how to tactically employ
them than anyone in the Navy,"
stated Donnelly.
HS-5 Commanding Officer
Cmdr. Roy Undersander also had
high praise for the entire staff.
"I consider these men to be a
national treasure when it comes
to antisubmarine warfare tactics
and training in general. I have
grown up professionally with
these men. They have mentored
me on leadership as well as tac-
tics from the time I was an ensign
until now as a commanding offi-
cer," he stated.
Over the years, these men have
trained and educated retired
admirals to current squadron
commanding officers to the new
lieutenants.
In the future, they will continue
to train pilots on the integrated
simulators on a Department of
Defense network that allows joint
operations between simulator
training conducted thousands of
miles away and among dissimilar
platforms and services.

OLF Whitehouse:



A place where


pilots train

By Kaylee LaRocque
editor I


Nestled in the middle of Florida
farmland off Interstate 10 is
Outlying Field (OLF) Whitehouse.
It is here that new Navy pilots gain valu-
able experience as they conduct flight
operations simulating aircraft carrier
approaches and landings.
The site is used by student pilots in all
types of aircraft from squadrons through-
out the east coast conducting about 23,000
takeoffs and landings each year. The 8,000-
foot runway features carrier deck lighting
at each end of the runway.
"We are here training our new pilots.
They are required to complete 150 passes
which are graded on their deviations from
the glide slope as they pass over the land-
ing signal officer shack. Once they com-
plete this training, they head out to the
aircraft carrier and do it for real," said Lt.
Patrick Dziekan of VAW-16, as he watched
five E-2C Hawkeye and C-2 Greyhound
pilots practice their approaches last week.
"We come here about every two months to
qualify our new pilots."
Custody of OLF Whitehouse originally
belonged to NAS Cecil Field and was trans-
ferred to NAS Jacksonville when that base
closed in 1997 due to a Base Closure and

OLF Whitehouse consists of an air traf-

air traffic controllmen and a fire station.
"We control the field carrier landings when
the student pilots come out here to qualify
on simulated carrier landings. We get a
lot of squadrons from Beaufort, S.C. and
Norfolk, Va. using the airstrip. Our job is
to stay in constant communication with the
pilots and ensure their training missions
operate safely," said OLF Whitehouse Air
Traffic Control Tower Branch Chief AC1
Erick Malespin. "We normally have two air
traffic controllers but also use this tower
to train our new controllers. We can have
up to four controllers in the tower at one

Florida Forever buffers Florida military


NH Jax can save you money


bases to protect economy and ecosystems when using other health insurance


From The Nature Conservancy
The $52 billion in economic benefits
the military and defense indus-
tries provide in Florida face two
major threats: development encroach-
ment on bases and the loss of healthy
habitats for native species throughout
the state.
To address these threats and grow the
economic strength of the military, bases
must be protected by acquiring conserva-
tion lands important to the military. The
Nature Conservancy responded to a study
released Feb. 1 that shows an $8 billion
increase in military economic benefits
over the past two years or the equiva-
lent of 9 percent per year.
An invigorated Florida Forever pro-
gram combined with federal dollars allo-
cated for base buffering will help protect
Florida bases from future realignments
or closures, according to the Conservancy
and officials from the Florida Defense
Alliance, an organization created with-
in Enterprise Florida in 1998 to ensure
that Florida, its military bases and its
military host communities are improving
base efficiencies.
"Our Florida military have been skillful
managers of the wildlife and habitats on
their properties allowing a multitude of
plant and animal species to thrive along-
side testing and training operations,"
said Jeff Danter, Florida director of The
Nature Conservancy. "We are constantly
looking to enhance the value of these sites
by acquiring the important buffers and
habitat connectors to these bases."
For example, The Nature Conservancy
and the state recently acquired 11,313
acres of the long-sought Yellow River
Ravines Florida Forever project, which
links outstanding natural areas in
Eglin Air Force Base (AFB) with those
in Blackwater River State Forest. The
Florida Division of Forestry will man-
age the Yellow River lands as part of the
Blackwater River State Forest. The pro-
tected area will continue to provide criti-
cal habitat for black bears and other rare
species.
"Our once-remote bases face increas-
ing urban sprawl that restricts train-
ing and testing. Protecting adjacent con-
servation lands'is. an excellent solution
and fortunately one that is still available
in Florida. The Department of Defense
recognizes and appreciates the need to
work with partners such as Florida's
highly successful Florida Forever pro-
gram to share these costs," said Assistant
Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for
Environment, Safety and Occupational
Health Alex Beehler.
A 2007 RAND Corporation report com-
missioned by the Office of the Secretary
of Defense, and using Eglin AFB for
an in-depth study of base protection
needs, concluded that the base buffer pro-
gram was effective in guarding against
such restrictions. 'The RAND report


By Marsha Childs health benefits when anoth-
NI- 1 Marketing er person or employer has


warned that there was a narrow window
of opportunity to address these concerns,
and called for sharply increased funding
to be made available for base buffering
partnerships.
"The United States Navy, and in par-
ticular Navy Region Southeast, has ben-
efited greatly from the Florida Forever
program in preserving biodiversity and
in limiting incompatible growth adverse-
ly impacting Florida's Naval Bases,"
said Rear Adm. MikeVitale, commander
Navy Region Southeast.
"The United States Navy committed
$5.03 million for land acquisition that
requires cost sharing from sources such
as the Florida Forever program; with-
out funding from such sources, the federal
funding may be lost," Vitale said. "Navy
Region Southeast believes it is vital that
we preserve our ability to work together
to ensure that we can continue our suc-
cessful and important conservation and
encroachment-prevention partnership."
"Lights from development hinder night-
vision training, some flight operations
can create noise complaints, and housing
near drop zones interferes with para-
chute training. To maintain our military
readiness we need to protect our mili-
tary installations and critical airspace.
We greatly appreciate Florida Forever
projects designed to link conservation
lands and provide natural buffers against
incompatible development that would
adversely impact Florida's many military
installations," said Robert Arnold, chair-
man, Mission Enhancement Committee,
Eglin AFB.
"The cost of not buffering is that both
the military and the ecological value of
Florida's bases could be seriously compro-
mised. The bases are a vital resource for
the military, Florida's economy and for
wildlife. We should work collaborative-
ly to protect these tremendous assets to
our nation and our state," said Deborah
Keller, The Nature Conservancy's senior
policy representative for Department of
Defense Conservation Partnerships.


Every January mil-
lions of Americans
must meet their
annual out-of-pocket medi-
cal deductible when seeking
health care in the civilian
community. Patients who
are covered by commercial
health .insurance carriers
can avoid this expense by
using the military treat-
ment facility (MTF) at the
beginning of each year.
The Third Party
Collection (TPC) program
allows Naval Hospital
Jacksonville (NHJ) to bill
private health insurance
carriers for services provid-
ed.
The good news is you will
never be charged a deduct-
ible or co-payment assessed
by your other health plan
for services provided at
an MTF. The government
absorbs these costs. This
could save you money if you
later seek medical services
in the civilian community.
Congress has authorized
federal facilities to recover
costs for patients covered
under commercial health
plans for medical services
provided at an MTF.
You may receive a state-
ment that reflects your
share of the payment, but
the MTF will never try to
collect the difference if the
carrier does not cover the
entire cost.
These services include
outpatient visits, inpatient
admissions, laboratory and
radiology services, prescrip-
tion drugs and ambulatory
surgery.
You may also receive


when you are checking in
for an appointment. If your

Or, you are injured on the

from private health carri-

So help yourself and help
your shipmates by providing

VP-30 helps




build new homes


By Lt. Matthew Rocha
VP-30 PAO


VP-30 kicked off the new ye
bang. A bang of the hammer,
January, the Clay County Habi
for Humanity donated another house
to a grateful, hardworking local
family. Several Sailors from
VP-30 contributed to the con-
struction by donating their
skills, labor and time both
on duty and off.
In addition to building
the house, Sailors provide
mentorship and are role
models for adolescent chil-
dren while they are per-
forming court ordered com-
munity service. In some
cases those friendships
last long after the con-
struction is completed.
The most recent home was
one of three that were built in four
months, thanks to the kindness of t
volunteers and donors. Each volunteer
is designed to fit the needs of the do:
having two bathrooms with three to fiv
as necessary. ATC Steven Tindell is o


volunteers that enjoys building the homes. He
encourages those who question the program to
ar with a attend a dedication. "The most rewarding thing
that is. In you can do is go to the dedication and give the
itat family their first set of house keys," said
Tindell.
Clay County Habitat for
Humanity was created in 1977 by
members of the Penny Farms
retirement community who
helped disadvantaged neigh-
bors repair their homes. In
1988, it was incorporated
and continues to help "part-
ner families" build simple,
decent homes. The houses
are sold to "partner fami-
S. lies" at cost and are financed
"' with affordable, no-interest
-mortgages. In addition to
making a down payment
and monthly payments, hom-
Vowner families invest 200-500
hours of their own labor working
he alongside volunteers on their new home as
built home well as the homes of their future neighbors. Clay
nor family, County Habitat for Humanity has built homes as
e bedrooms well as dreams with 117 families in Clay County
ne of many and plans to build many more this year.

Fleet Readiness Center

SSoutheast recognizes

Sailors of the Year

By AT2(AW) Krystal Smith
FRCSE

F leet Readiness Center Southeast (FRCSE)
recently recognized their top Sailors by naming
J them FRCSE Sailors of the Year. These unique
:Sailors stood out from the rest and were selected to
,represent the best of FRCSE, Site Jacksonville, Site
Key West, and Site Mayport.
Individuals were selected for each category, broken
.-up by paygrade: Senior Sailor of the Year (E-6), Sailor
of the Year (E-5), Junior Sailor of the Year (E-4) and
Blue Jacket of the Year (E-3 and below).
FRCSE named AS1(AW/SW) Juan Polanco as 2007
Senior Sailor of the Year (SSOY). Polanco is attached
to FRCSE Site Key West and is the leading petty offi-
.cer of the quality assurance division where he super-
vises, mentors and monitors three quality assurance


visors on quality assur-
ance policies and proce-
dures.
FRCSE Key West Site
Officer-in-Charge (OIC)
Lt. Cmdr. Dennis Hendrix,
who made the announce-
Iment during command
quarters, congratulated
- Polanco noting his perfor-
mance served not only to AS(AW/SW)
inspire his. peer group, but Juan Polanco
gives all of FRCSE Sailors
an attainable goal.
2 "It is my privilege to stand here today and pub-
,licly recognize this outstanding Sailor. He repre-
~sents daily, the best testament of the Navy and truly
embodies the Navy's core values. He has helped to
-create a better working environment with his positive
Work ethic and his easy going sense of humor," said
Hendrix.
Along with Polanco, ASI Patrick Ryan; AM1
Michael Kaelin and AZ1 Jarrett Hurston were select-
ed to represent Site Mayport and Site Jacksonville as
"the 2007 SSOY.
Ryan is attached to FRCSE Site Mayport's
AIRSpeed Department, where he is directly respon-
sible for the management, scheduling, and training of
more than 200 personnel in Naval Aviation Enterprise
Naval Aviation Readiness Integrated Improvement
Program Continuous Process Improvement initiative.
Kaelin is the airframes division leading petty officer
at Site Jacksonville.
Also representing Site Jacksonville is Hurston.
Hurston is assigned as the power plants division logs
and records leading petty officer.
FRCSE Mayport Site OIC Cmdr. Graham Guiler
said, "It is my honor to stand shoulder-to-shoulder
with these fine Sailors and call them shipmates. They
exemplify the best of the Navy and the best within
FRCSE. While they come from different learning cen-
ters, they have all demonstrated superior performance
and dedication to self-improvement."
All four of these individuals made one aspect per-
fectly clear. The people that they work with and the
collective drive they have as a team is what makes the
job so fulfilling.
While proud of their career accomplishments so far,
these SSOYs say they still have several goals left to
achieve. They want to ensure that those who come
after them have the same opportunities that they had,
and continue to be a role model for those who sup-
ported them.
FRCSE also congratulates its E-5 and below most
outstanding Sailors. AZ2 Sarah Williams and AT2
Krystal Smith were named Sailors of the Year (SOY).
Williams is attached to Site Jacksonville's production
control as a data analyst while Smith is assigned to
FRCSE's public affairs division.
Junior Sailors of the Year (JSOY) were AT3 Richard
Crazythunder and AT3 Jessica Winter, AEAN Jacob
Huey and PS3 Roland Gonzales were named Blue
Jackets of the Year (BJOY).
Site Mayport named PR2 Rodriquez its SOY.
Representing Site Mayport's JSOY is AT2 Hoff and
the BJOY AZ3 McCaffrey.
From Site Key West, AS2 George Asanas, who is
Work Center 930's supervisor, was named JSOY.
BJOY, AS3 Jonathon Peglow, is attached to Work
Center 92D as the assistant supervisor.

Flexibility keeps workforce


strains to a minimum

PWD Pensacola - --

tests Stretch and Sr'

Flex Program .
for NAVFAC *1

Southeast "i

By Sue Brink -.
NAVFACSE PAO p


Not only do you see
training squad-
rons on board NAS
Pensacola getting fit, the
shop workforce at Public
Works Department (PWD)
Pensacola gets together
every morning at 6:30 a.m.
to prepare for a hard day's
work by going through a
10-minute stretch and flex
program.
_"Research shows that
-inployees that are pre-
pared to work in confined
spaces or do heavy lifting
will have less strains and
sprains," said NAVFAC
Southeast Safety Manager
Dave Folk.
"This program has
worked at other NAVFAC
locations such as Hawaii
and Japan, so we are look-
ing at implementing it here
in the Southeast."
It has been three weeks
since PWD Pensacola start-
ed its shop workforce on the
stretch and flex program as
a pilot for Naval Facilities
Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast.
When NAVFAC Southeast
was looking for someone
to start up the program,
the employees at PWD
Pensacola volunteered right
away.

Public Works Department Pensacola shop workforce go
through a 10-minute Stretch and Flex program each morn-
ing before heading out for a hard day's work. Developing a
stretching routine will help employees prevent strain types of
injuries.


"We had a program like
this years ago," said Royce
Atkins, PWD Pensacola
pipe fitter.
Approximately 41 of 46
employees in the group
actively participate in the
program each morning.
Attendance is mandatory,
but participation is volun-
tary.
"Body strains are a
problem even when not at
work," said Folk. "We are
trying to teach our employ-
ees that whether here at
work or on the golf course,
take a few minutes to devel-
op a stretching routine to
help prevent strain types of
injuries."
The program is led each
morning by Lt. Cmdr. Nate
Price, PWD Pensacola pro-
duction officer, using a 10-
minute program designed
for industrial workers.
Employees do the stretch-
es at their own pace so that


they don't stretch beyond
their own capabilities. By
making stretching a part of
their daily routine they will
be more apt to perform the
basic stretch routine before
entering small confined
spaces or prior to perform-
ing a heavy lift.
"The program appears to
be beneficial," said Atkins.
"It will help all of us to be a
bit more flexible."
The employees are not
only stretching before start-
ing work each day, they are
getting together to build
relationships and promote
camaraderie amongst the
team.
"It is always positive
when you can get the entire
group together to work and
talk about the day's activi-
ties," continued Atkins. "I
think more and more will
participate in the program
as they see how we all
interact together."

Some information about spit tobacco


By Danny Woodard, MA, CTTS
Tobacco Cessation Program Manager, Wellness Center
The following are some facts about
spit tobacco:
Moist snuff (dip) This is
referred to as North American snuff which
is ground up fine tobacco and is cured with
heat. Other flavorings and chemicals are
added (about 3,000) and it comes moist in
a small round can.
It has a different texture and sticks
together when you put a pinch (two fin-
gertips full) in your mouth between your
cheek,and gum usually lower cheek and
gum. North American moist snuff is higher
in nitrosamines and other carcinogens due
to this heat curing process which gener-
ates more nitrosamines (carcinogen most
responsible for cancers) than other curing
methods. This type of snuff has much high-
er levels of nicotine than dry snuff.
Loose leaf tobacco (chewing tobac-
co) This consists of chopped up larger
pieces of tobacco leaves and stems that
come in a paper pouch. This is also heat-
cured tobacco and has many flavorings
such as molasses and other sugars.
Usually you stick three fingers full of
tobacco in your mouth in the back part of
your cheek. It is very strong and has the
highest levels of nicotine of all of the spit
tobaccos. It also makes the person secrete
large amounts of saliva and tobacco juice
so there is a lot of spitting involved.
Dry snuff (can be dipped or sniffed up
the nose) Dry snuff is cured with heat
and has been referred to in the past as
European snuff. It is usually dipped like
moist snuff in the U.S. but can also be
sniffed up the nose to obtain the nicotine
kick. After use, the snuff is blown out of
the nose. Dry snuff is a finer ground up
tobacco than moist snuff and usually comes
in a small tin container. Dry snuff has
lower amounts of nicotine than moist snuff
and is not very popular in the U.S.
Plug tobacco is the loose leaf that is
compressed to form a plug (similar to the
size of a large candy bar) and the user
bites off a piece of the plug and then uses it
like loose leaf tobacco. It is very strong and
can be higher in nicotine than loose leaf. It
causes the same effects (large amounts of
juice, etc.) and involves lots of spitting.
Twist tobacco is the oldest form of spit
tobacco. One to three high-quality leaves
are braided and twisted into a rope while
green and then are heat cured. Originally
devised by sailors due to fire hazards of
smoking at sea and until recently this
was done by farmers for their personal
consumption in addition to other tobacco

love my lips.., do you?
Quit the dip and save your lip!

Wellness Center
at 542-5292 and quit dipping

intended for sale. Modern twist is occasion-
ally lightly sweetened. Twist is usually
chewed similar to plug and/or loose leaf.
Swedish Snus (pronounced "snoose")
is a moist powder tobacco. Some call it a
kind of snuff. Snus is manufactured and
mainly consumed in Sweden, Denmark
and Norway.
Several versions have recently been
introduced into the U.S. These products
are now being sold over the counter by two
major American tobacco companies as well
as one Swedish company. One version is
sold in Navy Exchanges. The Swedes claim
that Snus is safer then American snuff but
there has been no research to back up that
claim in the U.S.
Snus comes, packed like snuff (loose, fine
ground) in small paper pouches that you
put in your upper lip (contrary to lower lip
for American snuff). Snus can be white or
black, mild or strong. Snus contains more
nicotine then cigarettes and can cause oral
cancer, pancreas cancer and cancer of other
distant organs.
Spit tobacco cessation uses the same pro-
cesses as smoking tobacco cessation. There
is a much higher level of nicotine in spit
tobacco so nicotine replacement (patch,
gum or lozenge) will be dosed much higher
initially than your average smoker. You
will also need to take more time to wean
yourself off of the nicotine.
Tobacco substitutes can also be used.
These products give you a taste and tex-
ture similar to spit tobacco without the
toxins chemicals and are totally safe. To
quit the spit, give us a call at the Wellness
Center at 542-5292 or 542-2836.

AUCTION DIRECT USA'S


INNOVATIVE DIRECT-TO-PUBLIC

PRICING FOR USED CAR SALES IN

THE JACKSONVILLE AREA.
Nationwide expansion underway with third location now open in Jacksonville, Florida


Jacksonville FL- Just a little more than three
years after opening the first Auction Direct
USA location in Victor NY, it's owner have
seen the business's new and unique car
buying experience catch on big with buyers of
used cars, trucks, minivans, and SUVs in the
Jacksonville market. The third location recently
launched in Jacksonville with a grand opening
event that has attracted hundreds of customers
in the first few weeks.

"A lot of people use the phrase 'a new way to buy
a used car' but with our business this is really the
truth", says founder and presidentJohnlannone.
"There is no one that we know of doing what we do
and making such significant savings available to
the general public" adds general manager Tom
Grimm. Grimm is a twenty five year veteran of
the Florida automotive industry.

Auction Direct USA buyers start at dozens of
wholesale dealer auctions around the country
where they hand pick only the best vehicles at
substantial discounts. Then after an Auction
Direct USA certified inspection and clean
CarFax report, Auction Direct sells their cars
for just $399 over the auction reserve price. The
used vehicle superstore for the Jacksonville
area is a 37,000 square foot building located at
6400 Blanding Boulevard just north of 1295.

Said lannone; "As word spreads about how much
money people can save with us, our business keeps
growing and growing. We offer the best of both
worlds so to speak, with our 'lowest in market'
pricing policy and then a no risk 3 day/500 mile
money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with
yourpurchase". lannone and the other partners in
Auction Direct USA promised to revolutionize
the used car business in Jacksonville and across
the US. Additional locations in the southeast
are scheduled to open in late 2008 and'early
2009. They have established a buying group
consisting of two dozen large national auction


houses. Only the best vehicles are selected to be
sold daily at Auction Direct USA. Consumers
can view, test drive and even purchase the
various vehicles at the Jacksonville location-
before they are auctioned. "We have a great,,
facility where the public can come and see the cars
and test drive them, but for some, buying online,
is the fastest and most cost effective way", says,.
lannone. "We offer both methods and have really -
developed the online side of the business". "These
are all top shelf, prime vehicles available through.,
our facility" adds Grimm.

"They are on a first come first serve basis and
consumers can purchase them before we make.
them available to be auctioned. We are committed
to pricing that is typically $2,000 to $5,000 LESS
than traditional retailers". In addition Auction ,
Direct USA allows consumers to trade in '
their existing vehicles toward their auction.
purchases. Auction Direct USA also has a,
full array of financing options and extended.,,
warranties available to all consumers.
"The time has come to break with traditional car.
buying routines" says lannone. "We give the public
access to wholesale auction buying methods. Just in
the same way that the deep discount retailers have,
revolutionized the way consumers can purchase its.
day to day essential products, we do the same with,
vehicle purchases".

Auction Direct USA has a large selection of
quality pre-owned vehicles available including
up to 2008 models. Grimm points to an example"
of a 2008 Chevrolet Impala LT, "MSRP of this"
vehicle is $23,100 and you can buy it now fofr
just $16,186, a savings of $7,000". The entire
inventory of vehicles can be searched at its
website, auctiondirect.com.Consumerswishing

members, encouraging them to set sav-
ings goals, open savings accounts, make
regular contributions to household savings,
increase debt payments and participate in
financial education programs.
Sailors should contact their command
financial specialist to seek assistance
regarding their current financial readiness.
Sailor and family members can also contact
their local Fleet and Family Support Center
for financial counseling, referrals and a
description of financial classes offered such
as savings and investing, debt reduction,
car buying, home buying and more.


Nobody starts with the intention of
becoming deeply in debt. Everyone can use
help with finding additional ways to more
effectively manage money. Emergencies can
happen to anyone at anytime.
The real focus is preparing for the unex-
pected by having funds to meet those unex-
pected requirements. By establishing goals,
maximizing the savings of personal income
and reducing debt, our Sailors and families
can enjoy the freedoms of financial indepen-
dence.
To learn more about Military Saves
and to enroll as a Saver, visit www.mili-
tarysaves.org.

From the TRICARE Management Activity

The classic marketing slogan "I'd rather
fight than switch" has no place in the
campaign to encourage TRICARE ben-
eficiaries to make the switch from retail phar-
macies to the TRICARE Mail Order Pharmacy
(TMOP).
The "switch" has taken place in record num-
bers, in record time, all pretty much due to the
new Member Choice Center (MCC).
The goal to convert 60,000 retail prescrip-
tions to mail order within a year through the
MCC was a done deal in less than four months
according to TRICARE officials. By mid-
January 2008 there were over 65,000 conver-
sions with another 10,000 in the process.
"The ease of using the Member Choice
Center, coupled with our efforts at getting
the word out, contributed to immediate suc-
cess," said Army Maj. Gen. Elder Granger,
deputy director of the TRICARE Management
Activity. The MCC launched at the end of
August, 2007.
"Everyone who makes the switch from now
on is above and beyond our initial goal. It just
goes to prove, the more convenience and sav-
ings you offer, the more receptive beneficiaries
will be to making the TMOP choice."
TMOP allows TRICARE beneficiaries, con-
sisting of the members of the seven Uniformed
Services, retirees and their families, to save
money by receiving up to a 90-day supply of
most medications for the same amount they
would pay for a 30-day supply at a retail phar-
macy.
Some beneficiaries save as much as 66 per-



AGREEMENT:
From Page 1

"I've had Sailors come up to me later on
and say, 'Hey, thanks for making me go
through these courses,' because now they
are making more money than they would
have without it."
According to OS1(SW/AW) Chad Kiser,
a Sailor who successfully completed the
courses, they are very beneficial and even
more valuable for the college credit.
"The courses give you more knowledge
on how to protect yourself and how to pro-
tect the people in your division if you're in
charge, how to make sure they put safety
first," said Kiser.
"It's a great idea because Sailors have
more incentive to attend the class, and it's
beneficial in the long run: Every Sailor
should take advantage of this opportunity,"
said Kiser.
Lee says although the targeted audience
is for those on oil spill response teams, the
classes aren't exclusive. According to her,


cent on medications for conditions such as high
blood pressure, asthma or diabetes. In all, a
beneficiary's savings with TMOP could range
from $24 a year for each regular formulary
generic drug to as much as $176 a year for each
non-formulary brand-name drug. The savings
increase with each additional prescription.
As an added bonus, prescriptions are 30-
40 percent less through the mail-order ser-
vice compared to retail pharmacies. The
Department of Defense estimates savings as
much as $22 million a year with just a one per-
cent shift of prescriptions from retail to mail
order.
For many beneficiaries, the key factor is
the convenience of making the switch through
the MCC and the appeal of "home delivery".
TMOP pharmacists are available 24 hours a
day, any day of the week. Beneficiaries can ask
questions about their personal drug treatment
in complete privacy over the phone rather
than in public at a retail pharmacy counter.
The MCC can also refill a beneficiary's pre-
scription by mail, phone, fax, or online and take
payment by check or credit card. Although
toll free phone calls now out number Internet
requests, initial communication efforts resulted
in the majority of beneficiaries using the MCC's
online features to "click and convert."
There are other convenient features. An
electronic alert is e-mailed to beneficiaries
when their prescription is about to expire,
giving them time to arrange for a renewal
from their physician. Beneficiaries also get
an e-mail when prescriptions are shipped and
an additional reminder is sent when they are
eligible to refill the prescriptions.



More education
all military and government employees can
attend. "We are doing the best we can and
want what's best for our Sailors," said Lee.
"I don't shut my doors to any audience."
"I think the military is the life blood of
the country," added Cindy Alderson, direc-
tor of military and federal instructional
program management at FCCJ.
"We live to support the military element.
By affording opportunities to the future's
youth both the military and the youth in
general you ensure the next generation
of leaders."
Lee and FCCJ anticipate even more
classes being added and will continue to
update the agreement as time goes on.
"You have to change and you have to
continue to provide customers what they
need," said Lee.
"If you don't, then eventually you go out
of business."
Anyone interested in enrolling in these
classes can either contact Lee at amy.leel@
navy.mil and FCCJ for the college credits.


YAC: New accreditation


From Page 1


"The staff has tremendous buy-in to the
program. Each staff member was allowed
to plan and decorate their own room. There
is a true 'community' feel to the program.
Staff and children were happy to be there."
In a letter sent to the center, NAA direc-
tor of program improvement and accredita-
tion Stephanie Brumbeloe praised the YAC
for providing excellent care to the children
enrolled in the program.
"We are honored to have your program
join more than 550 accredited programs
nationally and serve as a role model for
excellence. The accreditation award you
have earned took solid leadership, team-
work, family support and perseverance. All


of these qualities will also help ensure that
your program continues to maintain the
high level of quality you have attained,"
said Brumbeloe.
"I think this is great! It was one of my
personal goals to receive this accreditation.
Everyone worked really hard to accomplish
this and we are all very proud. It was a bit
challenging because we accomplished this
at the same time we were moving into the
new YAC and really had to hustle to have
everything ready for inspection within a
month after moving. I'm very proud of my
staff who do a tremendous job every day,"
said Elliot.

SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE -


IA duty: It could happen to you


By Beth Wiruth
Sixcial ('o)nlltil)iutor


S" j1" Hon. Just
||want to give you
"H a 'heads up,' my
name is one of three names
on the list for individual
augmentee (IA) duty from
the base."
This was the message I
received from my husband
recently. It sent a shock
wave through my heart and
emotions. Of course, I knew
that IA duty was a real pos-
sibility but I had allowed
myself to be lulled into a
sense of security.
Now my mind was rac-
ing! How soon would my
husband be gone? For how
long? Where would he be
deployed? Would he be
safe?
The next questions were
equally challenging. When
does my power of attorney
expire? When does my ID
expire? How about the tags
on the vehicles? I'm not
ready for deployment! Not
emotionally or practically.
And, I'm the one who writes
about maintaining family
readiness!
IA duty is a reality of
Navy life. In case you are
not familiar with the term,
IA's are individual Sailors,


both officer and enlisted,
who have been selected
to support the military's
efforts in the global war on
terror.
They are sent to an
Army boot camp (usually
Fort Jackson, S.C.) for a
specialized basic combat
training then deployed to
Iraq, Afghanistan, Horn of
Africa, Guantanamo Bay,
Cuba or other areas in sup-
port of the Army or joint
forces efforts.
IA duty is unique. Rather
than being deployed with
a command or unit, these
Sailors (and Airmen from
the Air Force) are sent as
individuals. Their deploy-
ment can be as little as
nine months or as much as
18 months. While the Navy
has-worked to offer those
selected for IA duty enough
time to get their affairs in
order and spend time with
family, these orders often
come quickly with little
'lead time'. Marianne from
Pensacola wrote that her
husband was gone in six
days. Ouch!
While some IA's are
selected from deploying
commands, most are select-
ed from shore duty or non-
deploying commands. Shore


duty isn't really shore duty
anymore and we as spous-
es need to be aware of this
and maintain readiness
throughout shore duty.
For me this was a wake-
up call to once again main-
tain readiness. I do not
want our last few days
together to be spent at
NLSO, medical, DMV and
Pass & ID getting every-
thing done that could have
been maintained.
So let me ask you, what is
your level of readiness? Do
you have a current power
of attorney? Do you have a
deployment/readiness plan
in place? When does your
ID and tag on your vehicles
expire?
Maintaining a higher
state of readiness will
provide for a more secure
deployment for you and
your Sailor as well as
insure that the days before
deployment can be enjoyed
as a family rather than
scurrying about.
IA duty is a reality of
Navy life but we can be
prepared. Check with your
local Fleet and Family
Support Center for support
programs for IA's as well as
assistance in family readi-
ness.
