NAS Jax holds public hearing on new P-8A

By Kaylee LaRocque

Videographer Ken Thomas from First Coast News interviews Chris Harding, P-8A "Poseidon"
multi-mission maritime aircraft environmental impact statement project manager during a
media availability event April 8 at NAS Jax. The event was held to familiarize members of the
media about the Draft Environmental Impact Statement which was developed to assess poten-
tial environmental consequences of the introduction of the P-8A to the U.S. Navy fleet.


A public hearing was held April 9 at
the Howard Johnson Inn in Orange
Park to hear comments for the draft
environmental impact statement (DEIS)
regarding the transition of the P-3 "Orion"
aircraft to the new P-8A "Poseidon" multi-
mission maritime aircraft.
The transition will occur from 2012 to
2019, possibly bringing five P-8A squad-
rons to NAS Jacksonville.
Representatives from U.S. Fleet Forces
Command and NAS Jax were on hand to
answer questions and explain the transi-
tion.
"The P-8A is a version of the 737 aircraft
and will eventually replace the P-3s which
have been in service since the mid-60s.
They are just wearing out and the Navy
needs a new aircraft," said Rick Keys, a
project officer for the P-8A fleet introduc-
tion with U.S. Fleet Forces Command


(FFC), based in Norfolk, Va.
"We're looking at several


Ortega resident Kerry Dunlavey testifies
about her concerns regarding current noise
levels she has experienced with the P-3
"Orion" and asked what would happen if
the P-8A "Poseidon" aircraft squadrons are
brought to NAS Jax during a public hearing
at Howard Johnson's Inn Orange Park April 9.
Dunlavey was the only citizen from Ortega to
attend the meeting and voice her concerns at
the public hearing.
such as the number of squadrons that
would possibly be stationed at NAS Jax
and right now the Navy's preferred alter-
native is to bring five fleet squadrons here
and keep the fleet replacement squadron
here."

Memorial ceremony remembers fallen Seabees


By Kaylee LaRocque
Editor


even Seabees from Naval Mo-
bile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 14 who were killed in
Iraq in 2004 were remembered dur-
ing an emotional event at NAS Jax
Saturday.
The memorial service is held each
April to remember SW2(SW) Jason
Dwelley, E03 Christopher Dickerson,
BU2 Michael Anderson, E02 Trace
Dossett, CM2 Scott McHugh, BU2
Robert Jenkins and SW3 Ronald
Ginther who were on deployment to
Al Anbar Province, Iraq in support of
Operation Iraqi Freedom.
"This ceremony today is to stop, pause
and honor our Seabees who lost their
lives so we can all live in a country with
the freedom we all cherish. Today, we
remember Seabees who live by our core
values of honor, courage and commit-
ment. We stop today for a few moments
so we never forget the enormous price
our brothers and their families paid so
we and all Americans can live our lives


without fear," said EOC Michael Falk at
the beginning of the memorial service.
NMCB-14 Commanding Officer
Cmdr. Gary Rouse then took the podi-
um to remind the audience of why they
were there.
"We started this ceremony a couple
years ago as a small get together to
keep alive the spirit of our seven killed
in action (KIAs) who gave the ultimate
sacrifice in 2004 during Operation Iraqi
Freedom. By God's grace, this service
has grown into a tribute to not only
the KIAs, but to their families and to
all of our fellow service members who
never made it back home or came home
wounded while bravely serving their
country," stated Rouse.
"It's uplifting to see so many here
today. I've always said that the military
is a very special family bonded together
in very special ways."
Rouse then introduced the guest
speaker, Capt. Scott Newman, com-
mander, 3rd Naval Construction
Regiment.

Commissary 'reset'

closure to improve

shopping experience

From the NAS ]ax Commissary

The NAS Jacksonville commissary will close at
4 p.m. Sunday and remain closed until April
23 while it undergoes a "reset" as part of the
Defense Commissary Agency's ongoing effort to
enhance the shopping experience.
"We hate to inconvenience our customers with the
two-day closure, but this is something we'll all appre-
ciate when it's done," said Store Director John Moore.
The reset is part of an agency-wide program that
systematically changes how products are displayed on
shelving throughout a commissary in order to better
serve customer shopping patterns.
The goal is to give commissaries worldwide a more
customer-friendly product flow and a layout that is as
consistent as possible from location to location, accord-
ing to Steve Arland, chief of DeCA's store reset and
planogram team.
"Although we have to take into consideration that
no two commissaries are constructed exactly alike, a
customer-friendly product flow means dog food will
be next to pet supplies instead of the charcoal, peanut
butter is best found next to the jam, and you shouldn't
have to cruise three different aisles to find all your
cleaning products. It's a simple matter of making the
commissary layout more sensible by 'resetting' the
store," he said.
DeCA is intent on making the commissary shopping
experience faster and easier making the commissary
the place to shop every day, not just on pay day. One
of the priorities is to help busy, active-duty shoppers
make a quick run through their commissary and get
home more quickly.
"The whole idea, in a nutshell, is to get conve-
nience into the shopping experience," said Arland.
Consistency is also part of the reset equation. "Why
shouldn't you be able to go to different commissaries
and find basically the same layout?"
"We try not to inconvenience the customers while
resetting stores," said Arland, "but we often have to
close the store for a day, sometimes two, in order to
tear down the shelving and move it and restock."
"Our customers usually like the new layout once
they get used to it. Sales increases always follow a
store reset and that's an indication that the user-
friendly product flow is a good change."
To make changes easier for customers to follow,
stores have aisle layout maps available as well as
generic item locators on their Web pages.
Store Web pages are under the locations link at
http://www.commissaries.com along with store hours,
contact information, store news and special customer
service features.

ON THE HOMEFRONT


What's Smiley still doing in Pensacola?


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


On Feb. 28th, Dustin had been
home from work for several
hours when he suddenly said
quite casually, "Oh, did I tell you
that they [they always means the
'military' in sentences that begin like
this] added Bangor, Maine to our list
of 'options' for the next duty station?"
(I put "options" in quotations because
the word wrongly implies that we
have any perceivable control over the
situation, which I'm about to prove.)
For months we had been waiting
to find out about Dustin's next set of
orders. We have been in Pensacola,
Fla. for going on five years now. Many
of our friends and family (i,-,.i.ii-
even you) had begun to forget that
Dustin is in the Navy.
It just didn't make sense that we
could stay in one place for so long,
even if the actual reason was that
Dustin had served as an instructor
pilot for fixed-wing aircraft before
switching to instruct in the helicop-
ters.
I've lived the last two years waiting
for the other shoe -- er, flight boot -- to
drop, either with Dustin being sent on
an IA (officially "individual augmen-
tation," but might also be described
as an inside sort of "draft") to Iraq or
orders to Guam.
I was always careful to write about
our exact location lest the powers that
be finally realize we had become so
comfortable here in Florida, we were
actually seeing trees grow and bloom.
I worried that they (meaning "the
military" again) might say, "What's
Smiley still doing in Pensacola? Let's
send that guy to Diego Garcia."
We've had it good for so long, we
knew our time was about to come. The


Hey MonevMan!
I was behind on a few
bills and was told they went
to collections. When I con-
tacted the stores to pay my
bills, they told me that they
would not talk to me and I
needed to talk with the col-
lections agency. What does
it mean when something is
sent to collections?

military likes to keep its people in a
constant state of alternating between
"this stinks" and "aren't we lucky?" I
think it's part of their retention plan,
but feels more like playing the slot
machines in Vegas.
It was a long, stressful period wait-
ing for the list of places Dustin might
be sent next. Especially because we
knew it could literally be anywhere
there is a reserve center. (Dustin's
next job will be commanding officer of
a reserve center.)
When the list of "options" (there's
that word again) finally came out,
it was like Uncle Sam had chucked
a handful of darts at the map. Our
"options" were in three of the four
corners of the country and many
places in between. But none of the
options were extreme or unusual.
There was Everett, Wash., Columbus,
Ga., Allentown, Pa. and some places
in Texas. We ranked our options, as
suggested by the detailer, in order of
preference from one to six.
As of Feb. 28th, however, I thought
our list was still in the rough stages
and had not been given to the detailer.
So when Dustin mentioned Bangor,
Maine being added as an option at the
last minute, I said, "Before you turn
in the list, let's look at it one more
time together and make sure we are
still in agreement."
Dustin said, "Um, yeah, well....
I kind of already turned in the list
today."
"You what? Before or after you
heard about Bangor?" (At this point,
Bangor was, in my mind, a city buried
under snow and ice and as foreign to
me as anyplace overseas.)
"Don't worry, I put Bangor number
seven of seven, so there's very little
chance we'll be sent there," he said.
Right then, Dustin had sealed his

Essentially, what hap-
pens is that the company

collecting from you and
decided to turn it over to
the pros.
Bill collecting is a seri-
ous and lucrative business.

to 60 percent of what they

fate as the cause of all my problems
should the official orders not be to our
liking. I would always be able to say,
"If you had only let me see the list one
more time before you turned it in....."
On April Fool's Day (of course!),
Dustin came home, pulled out a chair
and said, "I think you should sit down
for this."
"We're going to the west coast again,
aren't we?"
Dustin twisted up his face and
smiled apologetically. "The boys have
always wanted to see snow, right?" he
said.
Yep, we're going to Bangor, Maine,
the city we fought over that day when
I found out Dustin had turned in
the "final" list without showing it to
me first. The city Dustin threw onto
the list before I even knew it existed
as an "option." The city I have been
using during the weeks since then to
antagonize Dustin, "You're going to be
awfully cold in Maine, Dustin." "When
you're shoveling 20-feet of snow, will
you think about us here in Florida?"
However, after a lot of crying
and wondering if this could be rea-
sonable grounds for divorce, I have
come to a place of acceptance, and
yes, even uncontainable excitement
about the adventures that await us
in Bangor. Mainly: (1) Stephen King
lives there and (2) I won't have to
wear a bathing suit. But also: ski-
ing, Portland, Brunswick, LL Bean,
Lake Moosehead, Acadia National
Park, trips to Canada, trips to Boston,
and of course, throwing snowballs at
Dustin.
I think Uncle Sam is having a very
good laugh at this. Or maybe Dustin's
detailer. Either one.

Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast
has awarded Walbridge
Aldinger Company of
Detroit, Mich., a $35.8 mil-
lion contract March 31 for
an addition and alterations
to the hospital at NAS
Jacksonville.
"This is exciting news for
our patients and staff as
we can all look forward to
delivering patient care in a
vastly improved healthcare
environment," said Naval
Hospital Jax Commanding

Are you at

risk for having

diabetes?


Officer Capt. Raquel Bono.
"This represents the hard
work of scores of people
who have labored to put
this contract together."
"Work began in 2005 to
put this project together,"
said NAVFAC Southeast
IPT South Atlantic
Operations Officer Cmdr.
Kevin Roye. "There have
been many challenges with
hospital construction over
the past two years due to
an abundance of hurricane
repairs along the gulf coast
and because it is special-
ized construction."
This project will provide
a 62,000 square foot, three-
story addition with an
eight-story elevator tower
along with approximately
28,000 square feet area of
alteration and partial reno-


vation in the existing facil-
ity. A new generator and
fuel tank will be added to
the project. Site work shall
include the construction of
a new retention pond, storm
and sanitary lines.
"With this addition, and
all the renovations and
enhanced technologies we
already have in place along
with our renewed focus on
healthcare excellence and
service, Naval Hospital
Jacksonville begins a new
era of excellence in caring
for our military family,"
said Bono.
The hospital will remain
in operation during the
construction and the work
will have limited phasing
to allow hospital functions
to be maintained with mini-
mal interruption.


"When we talk about spe-
cial construction challenges
we have to address stan-
dards of infection control,"
said Roye. "Most construc-
tion projects do not have to
adhere to such stringent
standards. As the hospital
will remain functioning,
the contractor will have to
take special precautions to
ensure the health, safety,
and well-being of not only
their staff, but also that
the safety of the patients at
the hospital is not compro-
mised."
NAVFAC Southeast has
an excellent safety record
with all of its construction
projects as well as within
the command's personnel
work space. As with any
construction project safety
is of the utmost importance.

U p to six million
of the 21 million
Americans who
have diabetes do not know
it. If you think you don't
have to worry about it,
think again.
In the last 15 years the
number of people in the
United States with the
disease has doubled every
year. As many as one in
five Americans over age
65, have it. Those under 65
are at risk, too, especially if
they have any of the other
risk factors that contribute
to developing diabetes.
Diabetes is more common
among African Americans,
Latinos, Native Americans,
Asian Americans, and
Pacific Islanders. And, there
is a rising trend in children
and teenagers developing
diabetes.
The following are risk fac-
tors for diabetes that every-
one should be aware of:
Family history of dia-
betes
Being overweight or
obese
Having pre-diabetes
Having had diabetes
during pregnancy
To find out your risk for
diabetes take the risk test
at http://www.diabetes.org.
People who have diabetes
have a shortage of insulin
or a decreased ability to use
it. Insulin is a hormone that
acts like a key to open cells
allowing glucose to be used
for energy. When diabetes is
not controlled, blood sugar
and fats remain in the
blood which, overtime, can
damage the body organs.
Diabetes contributes to
heart disease, stroke, blind-
ness, kidney failure, ampu-
tations and death.
Recent studies have found
that lifestyle changes that
include moderate weight
loss and exercise can pre-
vent the onset of diabetes
among adults at high risk.
Also, research has found
that better blood sugar con-
trol reduces the risk for eye
disease, kidney disease,
and nerve disease by 40
percent in people with dia-
betes. Talk with your doctor
to find out if you need to be
examined for diabetes; the
process includes a simple
blood test.
You can help reduce your
risk for diabetes by doing
the following:
Managing your weight
to include losing weight if
needed
Being physically active
30 to 60 minutes a day
(walking, cycling, jogging,
swimming)
When shopping at your
commissary choose fruits,
vegetables and whole grain
foods to prepare healthy
meals.

HS-5 'Nightdippers'



conduct fly-in to



local Catholic school
By Lt. Allen Langston
HS-5 PAO 1)


H S-5 conducted a fly-
in to Annunciation
Catholic School
off Blanding Boulevard in
Middleburg on March 18.
Two pilots and three air-
crewmen flew an HH-60H
and landed it on the school's
athletic field for a static
display with the students
there to witness. In addi-
tion, eight maintainers, four
pilots and an administrative
representative attended the
event to answer questions
and introduce all the gear.
Lt. Dan Person and HS-5
Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Roy Undersander were
instrumental in arranging
the fly-in. Thanks to their
tireless effort, approximate-
ly 300 school children had
the opportunity to witness
what naval helicopter avia-
tion is all about.
Four stations were set
up, allowing the second
through eighth graders to
learn about squadron oper-
ations. The first station was
in the field at the helicop-
ter. There, pilots, aircrew-
men and maintainers were
waiting to answer questions
about the helicopter, search
and rescue gear, and basic
squadron operations.
Inside the library there
were two separate stations;
one for pilots to discuss the
squadron's mission areas
and another where mem-
bers of the parachute rig-
ging shop demonstrated the
importance of survival gear.
The final station was the

es thrown by HM2(FMF/
SW) Carlos Cruz-Castro of
Naval Hospital Jacksonville
and Branch Manager
Glenn Howe of NFCU.
AT2 Michael Factor from
Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast took advantage
of the opportunity to reen-
list on the field before the
game.
Excitement and patrio-
tism were in the air as
the doubleheader game
against the West Tennessee
Diamond Jaxx began, fol-
lowing a color guard pre-
sentation and a most-
appropriate performance
of the national anthem by
MU1 James Collins of Navy
Band Southeast.
Military Appreciation Day
was the result of months
of collaboration between
the Jacksonville Suns and
NFCU to create an event
that honored local military
personnel by providing
heavily discounted baseball
tickets.
"Navy Federal's goal was
to create a unique event
in Jacksonville that gave

To lead is to serve

By Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina
Special Contributor m ......


What do you want to be
when you grow up? Do you
remember that question?
Some of us may still be trying to
formulate the answer. It is a favor-
ite question we periodically ask our
kids.
The answers our children give are
usually a policeman, fireman or a
nurse. Some children get visionary
and may say a movie star, singer,
doctor, ball player and maybe even...
chaplain. One imaginative 6-year-old
responded, "when I grow up, I want to
be either a car mechanic or a garbage
collector." When asked as to why he
quickly said, "So I can get d(l y'I
Let's have some fun! Let us take
that same question and ask it another
way. Just for a moment, let's imagine
asking God what he wants us to be
when we grow up. All of a sudden it
is a whole new question. I suspect
that God's answer may be something
like this, "I want you to be different.
I want you to serve others. I want
you to be a helper." Why? Because
genuine service to others expresses
concern, generosity and elevates our
spirit to new levels of personal matu-
rity.
However, I am hard-pressed
to recall the number of times that
people have readily offered the fol-
lowing rejoinder, "I want to be a ser-
vant." I believe that culturally we
are discouraged to be servants. To
our ear it may sound unimportant to
be a servant. Our culture tends to
measure success in terms of titles,
duties and tasks. Our titles generally
describe who we are. Our culture has


created a hierarchy of
duties and at the bot-
tom of the totem pole
is the title "servant." I
suspect that while most
of us know that we will
never be the greatest,
we sure don't want to
be the least. I also sus-
pect that most of us
would rather give an
order than wear a ser-
vant's apron. Yes, there
exists an inherent ten- ,
sion in practicing ser-
vanthood. Where do Iin
draw the line between Chaplain (L
servanthood and slav-
ery or humility and self worth? Where
is the boundary that separates my
rights from others' rights?
To be sure, we need a renewed
understanding of what it means to be
a servant. I propose that if we aspire
to lead others we must be prepared
to serve others. Its corollary is that
genuine service will qualify us to lead
with integrity. Therefore, in renew-
ing and defining our understanding
of leadership we need to identify its
principle, its profile and its promise.
The principle of servant leadership:
This principle dictates that we can-
not exercise effective leadership until
we are postured to serve others. This
means that mission accomplishment
is meaningless if we are not taking
care of others. The servant leader
seeks to meet goals and see to the
needs of others. Both tasks need to be


accomplished simulta-
neously. Servant lead-
ership is practiced both
at work and at home.
The profile of the
servant: The profile is
exemplified through
those little things that
express encouragement
and concern. It is in
sending a greeting card,
making that special
phone call or sending
the impromptu email.
It consists in those acts
of self-sacrifice for the
sake of another.


t.) Joe Molina


The promise of ser-
vice: Its promise is realized in selfless
personal fulfillment and self-realiza-
tion as a person identifies with the
will of God for his creation. His/her
satisfaction comes from knowing
that he/she has made a difference in
another's life.
There's a small denomination of
Baptists known as Primitive Baptists.
Among some of their traditions is a
very distinctive practice of "foot wash-
ing." That is, at one point in their
worship service they wash each oth-
er's feet. Not only do they have the
cleanest feet in Christendom, but they
also do it as a cogent reminder of ser-
vanthood.
Indeed, to be a servant requires
courage, humility and genuine con-
cern. True service doesn't distinguish
big from small opportunities. True
service delights in God's approval!

From MWR


I 4:


t the crack of dawn on Saturday,
90 anglers headed to the Mulberry
W Cove Marina to participate in the
26th annual NAS Jax Morale, Welfare
and Recreation (MWR) Bass Tournament,
"Relocating Confused Bass Since 1982."
The event was open to all active duty
members, reservists, retirees and
Department of Defense civilians. Teams
consisted of two members per boat and
they fished from first light at 4:30 a.m.
until late into the afternoon.
The St. Johns Bass Anglers Club pro-
vided officiating duties for the event. In
the afternoon, as each team's catch was
weighed, a crowd began to gather around
the scoreboard. The lead changed many
times as everyone enjoyed free food and
beverages provided by MWR.
"The tournament overall was good even
though Mother Nature tried to put a damp-
er on the fishing conditions with a howl-
ing southwest wind that blew all day,"
said Ray Derrick, who placed first in the
event with his team member Lee Stalvey.
" I greatly appreciate the folks from NAS
Jacksonville MWR and St. Johns River
Bass Club volunteering their time to put
together the annual event and to run the
launch and weigh-ins. Without the volun-
teers, the event would not be possible."
"We caught our fish in three- to four-
foot waves in Tocoi. Thanks to Lee's vast
knowledge of the St. Johns River, we
where able to stay on the fish even in the
extremely windy weather," he continued.
"It's great that NAS Jacksonville has put
on the annual event for 26 years. A lot of
Sailors at the base don't even know that
the St. Johns River is a top fishery in the
U.S. even though they live and work right
next to it."
All participants received a free tourna-
ment shirt and sponsor bag with promo-
tional items. Thanks to the very generous
support from area businesses, the anglers
received more than $2,800 in door prizes
and gift certificates.
"This is one of the better tournaments
in Jacksonville. It is well run and there
are always lots of great prizes," said Larry
Delong, who participated in the tournament.
"I am very impressed with the entire
tournament, especially
considering the high
winds. This shows some Larry Delong;
serious dedication from
true anglers," added NAS
Jax Command Master
Chief CMDCM(SW) Jeff
Hudson.

Lone Sailor Memorial in downtown Jacksonville after a reenlistment ceremony.

HS-5 reenlistment numbers continue to grow
By Lt. Alen Langston ~
HS- PAO 1. A v A


he "Nightdippers" of
HS-5 have kept up
their torrid pace of
reenlistments.
If the first quarter of
2008 is any indication,
then HS-5 should be in line
for its third consecutive
CFFC Retention Excellence
Award. Through March 31,
16 Sailors have reenlisted,
and in the last two weeks
12 have resigned on the dot-
ted line. The list includes
E-4s all the way up to chief
petty officer.
On 20 March, three
members of the HS-5
Administration Department
held their reenlistment cer-
emony at the Lone Sailor
Memorial in downtown
Jacksonville.
Not to be outdone, on
March 28, six more squad-
ron members held their
ceremony downtown at the
memorial as well. Other
Sailors have chosen vari-
ous places around NAS
Jacksonville to reenlist
such as Hangar 116 and
Mulberry Cove Marina.
These Sailors have
extended the honor of
allowing their squadron
members to be reenlisting
officers from division offi-
cers to department heads to
the commanding officer.
The shear number and
the group format that these
young Sailors have chosen,
speak volumes of the U.S.
Navy and HS-5.
It demonstrates the cama-
raderie that Sailors develop
which is an integral part of
retention.

Jacksonville's Same Day Surgery Clinic. With 10 years
of service he wears the Fleet Marine Force Warfare
Specialist designation and Surface Warfare designation
proudly.
He is also one heck of a ball player. He keeps his oppo-
nents guessing as a switch hitter and his favorite spots
on the field are second base and shortstop, although he
enjoys fielding as well.
Selected to play second base with the team, Cruz-Castro
should fill the bill. "I love the middle infield and shortstop
positions. You have to be in constant movement, have a
strong arm, speed and be in continual contact with the
pitcher and catcher," he said.
He also will be an asset to the batting line-up. "As a
switch hitter I can use the entire field to my advantage,
depending on the situation as to whether it is to advance a
runner or trick the infield, keeping them off balance," con-
tinued Cruz-Castro. "You keep them guessing, keep them
on their toes."
The All-Military Baseball Team's Web site describes the
team, which was established in 1990, as "the fastest grow-
ing, largest, most successful and only 'joint' armed forces
baseball program ever created. More than 30 military
programs have been established in all services worldwide
in an effort to assemble the most talented U.S. Military
All-Stars team to compete against the finest professional,
independent and summer collegiate programs in the
world."
Cruz-Castro said that being selected for such a team is
an honor. "I look forward to serving as an ambassador for
my nation and the Navy, and I am proud to pursue the
mission of the All-Military Team," he stated. That mission
is "to promote the awareness of all Americans in support
of the honorable sacrifices our armed forces make at the
"Tip of the Spear."
Cruz-Castro has been there. Just prior to and during the
tragic events of 9/11, he served abroad in a joint training
mission with Marine Expeditionary Unit 24 which took
him to Kosovo, Russia, Israel, Turkey, Romania, the
Ukraine and several Mediterranean nations. After the
World Trade Center attacks, he and the units involved
in that mission went on alert ready to pursue missions
as tasked. After returning to Camp Lejeune, N.C., he
was subsequently deployed to Iraq during Operation
Iraqi Freedom where he was with the 2nd Force Service
Support Group providing combat support to U.S. Marines
and other allied elements pushing toward Baghdad.
Today, he and all of Navy Medicine remain ready to
deploy "anytime, anywhere."
Medicine has been a good fit for Cruz-Castro as he
enjoys serving others. He is proud of his service and
he says his medical duties always come first. In Iraq,
he recalled sometimes getting only 10 hours of sleep a

week as he worked with a team of "Devil Does" caring for
wounded. "What made this worth it," he said, "was the
feedback of a Marine grabbing my forearm strongly, star-
ing me in the eyes and thanking me for getting him back
to his family alive."
Cruz-Castro recalled working with three other hospital
corpsmen, all of whom he said were remarkable human
beings. They worked together as a team and they spent
their off duty hours working out together to keep in shape.
A couple of them, he recalled, aspired to become Navy
SEALs. One of those, HM3 Fernando Mendezaceves,
Cruz-Castro said was a go to Sailor who made pull-ups
look easy.
Sadly, Mendezaceves was cut down by crossfire in Al
Ramadi. Hospital corpsmen have accounted for more than
30 active duty deaths in this war, sacrificing their lives
caring for the Soldiers and Marines they consider family.
After four intense months in Iraq, Cruz-Castro returned
to the U.S. and was assigned to the main operating room
at Naval Hospital Jacksonville. Off duty, he has been
playing ball with the Mayport Cruisers, a regional mili-
tary, semi-pro team. He's played middle infield, second
base, shortstop and outfield and his switch-hitting prow-
ess has resulted in his being the team's third and fourth
clutch hitter.


HM2(FMF/SW) Carlos Cruz-Castro rounds first after a hit.
Castro was a clutch hitter for the Mayport Cruisers, a semi-
pro military team at NS Mayport. As a switch-hitter, he
should keep the opposing team's fielders guessing when he
comes to bat.
Vick Miller, the Cruiser's coach who also helped with
the All-Military tryouts at NS Mayport, said Cruz-Castro
brings with him a great team spirit. "He has a team atti-
tude. Cruz-Castro has quick hands on delivery and he's a
good base hitter," said Miller. "Being a switch hitter is a
definite positive."
Love of baseball is something Cruz-Castro says he got

Q: My allergies seem to be getting worse with lime. The runny nose. congestion, itchy walery eyes, sneezing
and wheezing are driving me crazy. Medications only help temporarily and make me very drowsy. Allergy shots
were not effective. Are there any new solutions out there lor those ol us that suler spring Lime allergies?
A: This year, you can look forward to spring and summer without the discomfort of allergies. There is a highly
effective treatment now available that resolves the cause of seasonal allergy symptoms, and best of all it does not
involve the use of shots or needles, drugs, sprays or inhalers.
Not everyone reacts to pollens, grasses, weeds. trees, dust. dust mites or molds. For those wno do suffer
allergy symptoms, their immune system is reacting to a harmless substance. In other words, an allergy is an
error that causes the immune system to respond inappropriately. Rather than treat the symptoms with shots
or medications, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) is a non-invasive, all natural treatment that eliminates the
allergy altogether.
AAT is safe and effective lor adults and children and can eliminate virtually any type of allergy including food
allergies, pet allergies, chemical sensitivities or even stimuli such as damp cold. barometric pressure change.

ThanksUSA offers scholarships to military spouses, dependents


From ThanksUSA


ThanksUSA, a charitable effort
to mobilize Americans of all
ages to "thank" our active-
duty troops by providing college
scholarships to their spouses and
dependents, has opened its third
year of accepting applications for
scholarships.
"America's troops provide an
invaluable service to our country
and the sacrifice of these men and
women and their families should not
come at the expense of their educa-
tional pursuits," said Carolyn Ferek


of ThanksUSA. "We hope, that in a
small way, these scholarships reflect
the nation's appreciation for their
service to help defend our freedom."
Interested applicants can find
more information, eligibility require-
ments and the official application
form at www.ThanksUSA.org.
Applications are being accepted now
through May 15.
Over the past two years,
ThanksUSA has awarded nearly $4
million in need-based, post-second-
ary scholarships to more than 1,350
spouses and children of military
members serving on active-duty sta-


tus. Scholarships have been award-
ed in all 50 states and the District
of Columbia to families representing
all branches of the Armed Forces
including the Guard and Reserves.
These need-based scholarships will
be awarded on a competitive basis to
the spouses and children of active-
duty military personnel who plan to
pursue a post-secondary education,
including vocational and technical
training. Recipients will be selected
on the basis of financial need, dem-
onstrated leadership and participa-
tion in school and community activi-
ties.

BASEBALL: Cruz-Castro named to all-star team


From Page 11


His disciplined practice paid off
when he had the opportunity to
represent Puerto Rico in the Latin
American Championships in Puerto
Rico. They competed against Mexico,
Venezuela, Panama, Dominican
Republic, St. Thomas, St. Croix,
Curacao and Trinidad finishing third
in the games. At the time, Cruz-
Castro was batting .343.
With a wealth of experience and
several years preparing for tryouts
only to have his military duties dis-
rupt his plans, Cruz-Castro is having
a great 2008. He's preparing for the
All-Military Team's Central American
Tour. The team will play the best non-
pro teams the Dominican Republic,
Panama and Nicaragua can field.
Cruz-Castro said, "Baseball is


only one of the responsibilities we're
tasked with. Off field we'll be visiting
hospitals, assisting coaches, perform-
ing baseball clinics and distributing
free gear donated by major league
baseball to children. Most important-
ly, we're diplomats and a direct rep-
resentation of our nation, therefore
reflecting at all times our Navy core
values and impacting others in a posi-
tive way." He added, "I feel blessed
by the opportunity the Lord has pro-
vided me, to represent not only our
nation but him as well."
The All-Military Team will return
to the U.S. in mid-May when they will
begin their 19th Red, White and Blue
Tour of America competing against
regional AAA and collegiate teams
across the nation. They'll be in Florida
in July. See the team's schedule at

son winds up with the inaugural USA
World Series in Orlando, Aug. 1-10.
Another honor came when Cruz-
Castro was asked to throw the first
pitch at a Jacksonville Suns Military
Appreciation Day doubleheader, April 6.
Cruz-Castro said he is very appre-
ciative of the support he has received
from Naval Hospital Jacksonville,
especially his directorate. He said
his church, where he coaches T-ball
and softball, and his pastor, have also
been very committed and helpful.
He expressed his gratitude for the
sacrifices his wife, Ivelisse and his
son, Carlos have made as he's served
his nation and pursued his baseball
dreams. Cruz-Castro has already
passed on his love of the game to little
Carlos, who he describes as his "train-
ing partner." The 5-year-old is on his
third season in T-ball.

'Be Food Safe' helps prevent foodborne illnesses


By Kevin Robinson
Defense Commissary Agency
Clean, separate, cook
and chill: A new
twist on an old mes-
sage will be rolling out to
commissary customers as
part of "Be Food Safe," a
new government-sponsored
program to help prevent
foodborne illnesses in the
home.
"Be Food Safe" brings
the Defense Commissary
Agency (DeCA) and 27
commercial retail grocery
chains together in partici-
pating with the Partnership
for Food Safety Education
and its government liaisons
- the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, U.S. Food and
Drug Administration and
U.S. Center for Disease
Control and Prevention. The
goal is to help consumers
become more aware of prop-
er food-handling measures
in the home, said Rick Page,
DeCA's acting director.


"If you take a moment
to practice 'Be Food Safe's'
four simple guidelines and
read the instructions on
the product label, you can
dramatically reduce your
chances of getting a food-
borne illness," Page said.
"When our customers visit
any of our stores or the
DeCA Web site, http://com-
missaries.com, they will see
information to help them
keep their food safe."
To help introduce this
yearlong campaign to its
customers, DeCA will begin
to unveil a series of post-
ers, flyers, circular ads and
informational brochures
that echo the four core food
safety practices of clean,
separate, cook and chill:
Clean Frequent clean-
ing can reduce spread of
bacteria on hands, cutting
boards, knives and kitchen
countertops. Always wash
hands with warm water
and soap for 20 seconds


before and after handling
food.
Separate To avoid
cross-contamination by bac-
teria, keep raw meat, poul-
try and seafood and their
juices away from ready-to-
eat foods.
Cook Improper heat-
ing and preparation can
allow bacteria to survive.

Navy Exchange helps sustain our environment


From NEXCOM
As good stewards of the Sailors' dollars, the Navy
Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) is
always looking for ways to save money. However,
NEXCOM is always looking for ways to help sustain the
environment as well.
"NEXCOM's strategy to help the environment is
very much aligned with the Navy's strategy and theme
'Sustaining Our Environment Protecting Our Freedom,'"
said Rear Adm. Robert Bianchi, commander, NEXCOM.
"Nearly every facet of the Navy Exchange System is
involved in conserving our natural resources for the
future. It's something we've been practicing for the past
several years."
NEXCOM vending was one of the first military exchange
programs to install energy-efficient vending machine
technology, the VM2IQTM VendingMiser, to help lower
energy costs. The VM2IQTM is designed to be installed
inside existing vending machines, and is capable of reduc-
ing energy consumed by about one-third, saving about
$100 per vending machine per year (depending upon
local Kilowatt per hour rate). Using a motion sensor,
VendingMiser powers down a vending machine when the
surrounding area is unoccupied and automatically re-pow-
ers the vending machine when the area is reoccupied. In
addition, the VendingMiser is designed to automatically
activate the machine to power up to ensure product within
the machine is always cold.
NEXCOM's distribution centers also have worked to
reduce energy consumption. At the distribution centers
in Pensacola, Fla., and Norfolk, Va., its high intensity
discharge fixtures were replaced with six fluorescent tube
hi-bay fixtures that have a higher lamp life for half the
cost. NEXCOM estimates a 33-37 percent savings per
year respectively. In the Chino, Calif., distribution center
warehouse, 490 light fixtures were replaced. In addition,
since the Chino distribution center has skylights, light
fixtures with photocells were installed so that during the
day, the lights will automatically turn off. These changes
should bring a savings of about $87,900 per year.
The Great Lakes, Ill., distribution center will soon
receive 180 new lighting fixtures as well. In addition,
all four warehouse facilities have or will have installed
motion sensors controlling the new light fixture and there-
fore, will only be used when actually needed. The total
annual electric use savings for these warehouses will
approach $400,000 per year.
Several Navy Exchanges (NEXs) have also completed
energy retrofits, which include installing power factor cor-
rection devices on air conditioning units and devices on


the light fixtures to reduce voltage and lighting levels. As
new NEXs are built, some of the technology that has been
incorporated in the retrofitted stores is automatically put
in the new stores. Thus, the NEX can be energy efficient
from the time it opens its doors.
In an effort to help the Department of Defense (DoD)
and Navy meet its objective of reducing the reliance
on petroleum and meet the requirements of Executive
Order 13423, NEXCOM has introduced several alterna-
tive fuel facilities at naval installations across the coun-
try. Biodiesel 20 (B20) is now offered at NS Norfolk and
NAS Oceana, Va.; Quarters K, Arlington,Va.; Naval
Surface Warfare Division, Crane, Ind.; Naval Weapons
Station Charleston, SC, NSB Kings Bay, Ga. and Naval
Academy Annapolis, Md. Ethanol 85 (E85) is also offered
at Quarters K and Crane, Ind. as well as NAS Jacksonville
and NS Mayport. Compressed natural gas (CNG) is the
alternative offering at the Quarters K gas station in
Washington, DC.
NEXCOM recently awarded a multi-award contract for
the supply and infrastructure development of E85 and
B20 alternative fuel. This contract is a delivery-order
contract enabling expansion opportunities at sites where
alternative fuels are required including other military
exchanges.
"This contract will reinforce collaboration / cooperation
with Chief of Naval Installations Command (CNIC) in
providing alternative fuels to support Navy-wide fuels pro-
gram," said Larry Boone, NEXCOM's Automotive Program
manager. "Further, DoD's biofuels study, under H.R. 5122
National Defense Authorization Act of 2007, recommends
that DoD use military exchanges for developing biofuels
infrastructure. This contract enables the first step toward
that development."
NEX Autoports or auto service centers also do their
part in recycling materials. Everything from used oil and
antifreeze to worn tires to replaced oil and air filters get
recycled instead of being thrown in the landfill.
NEXCOM's Ship's Store Program has introduced Ozone
washing technology to the fleet as a way to save energy
and cut down on the amount of chemicals used aboard
shipboard laundries. Currently, three Navy ships have
modified its ship's laundry washers to add Ozone technol-
ogy to the wash cycle. These new washers take in air from
the ship's atmosphere and along with a power cell "charge"
the air using ultraviolet light to create ozone. The ozone
is then injected into the cold water cycle. Because it is so
reactive, ozone readily attaches itself to fatty and other
soils that bind dirt to clothing, destroying them rapidly at
the molecular level. Ozone washing is extremely valuable
to the fleet in a number of ways: Ozone acts as a sanitiz-


ing and bleaching agent that makes the clothing whiter,
brighter and smell nicer; it allows ships to reduce the
amount of standard chemicals being used which is good
for the environment; it allows ships to wash in cold water
reducing the need for ships to produce large amounts of
hot water with associated costs; and the product is biode-
gradable as it reverts back to "air."
The Navy Lodge Program has several programs in place
that emphasize the importance of water and energy con-
servation. The Good Earthkeeping Program gives guests
the option of reusing their towels during their stay to
reduce energy costs.
The potential for savings is great since water consump-
tion for in-house laundry is reduced, as are energy costs
and chemical use. In addition, Navy Lodges are install-
ing energy efficient light fixtures and light bulbs, motion
detection light switches in all public restrooms and storage
rooms as well as installing an energy management system
to control heat and air conditioning in guest rooms. Each
Navy Lodge room has also had low flow water faucets and
showerheads installed to save on water consumption.
In NEXs, customers also have the option of purchasing
NEX Green bags to use instead of plastic bags. These reus-
able/recyclable bags are made of a sturdy mesh, sewn from
100 percent polypropylene that can withstand repeated
usage and can be recycled when no longer usable.
As part of each naval installation, NEXs worldwide also
participate in various recycling and environmental protec-
tion programs. Base clean up efforts, tree planting initia-
tives and education programs are just part of what NEXs
do to support the Navy, its customers and the community
to help protect the environment.


FOOD: Tips to keep foodborne illness at bay


From Page 18

ensure food is safely prepared accord-
ing to the product's cooking instruc-
tions.
Chill By chilling food properly,
you can reduce the risk of foodborne
illness. Bacteria spread fastest at
temperatures between 40 and 140
degrees Fahrenheit.


"The lessons of 'Be Food Safe' are
not new," said Col. Perry Chumley,
DeCA's director public health, safety
and security. "However, what is new
is the public's growing concern about
food safety."
"A growing number of people view
food-related illness as a serious threat
to their health," he said. "This pro-
gram reinforces' information we have


promoted all along such as reading
the warning labels that show you how
to safely cook your meat products."
Chumley also said that throughout
the year customers will periodically
see commissaries demonstrating prop-
er food-handling steps. Customers can

Country music singer and Army veteran Craig Morgan per-
forms at NAS Jacksonville after the USO care package stuffing
party April 10.

USO: Stuffing event/concert

brings out the volunteers


in performs one of his hit singles, "What I Love About Sundays" in Hangar 117 at NAS Jacksonville.

S Volunteers work
together to put
together more r
than 10,000
USO care pack-
ages that will be
shipped to the
troops fighting
the war on ter-
rorism overseas.


From Page 1


things the troops have spe-
cifically communicated to the
USO that they would like.
Each package can be a little
different but all have stan-
dard elements such as a pre-
paid international phone card
and hygiene kit. Others items
may include baby wipes, pop-
corn, playing cards, gum, cof-
fee and sunscreen," she con-
tinued.
While most of the packag-
es were to be shipped direct-
ly to the troops serving in
Iraq and Afghanistan, some
were used to replenish the
stock at the NAS Jax USO
for the troops departing
from the base.
Before the stuffing event,
Elaine Rogers, president
of the USO in Washington,
D.C. and coordinator of the
event, told the volunteers
how Operation USO Care
Package came about and
introduced Amy Vazquez,
who came to participate in
the stuffing party. Vazquez
is the mother of local fallen
hero Cpl. Joshua Watkins
who was completing his
second tour of duty in Iraq
when he was fatally wound-
ed near Fallujah in 2006.
"I'm here today because
I love this country and my
son loved this country and
I so appreciate anyone who
puts on a uniform," said
Amy Vazquez.
As the volunteers formed
lines down the tables, the
bags were stuffed with
goodies and passed along
until they were full. They
were then packed into
boxes, sealed and placed on
pallets. As each pallet was
loaded with 500 care pack-
ages, a siren went off let-
ting the volunteers know
their progress.
"This is a great event
to support the troops.
Anything we can do for wel-
fare and morale is good,"
said ACC(AW/SW) Chris
Simmons of Air Ops who is
going to Iraq on an individ-
ual augmentee tour later
this month. "I'm ready to
go and do my part and look
forward to receiving pack-
ages like this when I'm over
there."
After the stuffing party,
volunteers were treated
to a barbecue dinner and
free concert by Morgan who
sang some of his hits from
his latest CD, "Little Bit of
Life."
"I'm here today to sup-
port the troops, the men
and women of the Armed
Forces. We teamed up with
Jack Daniels and have
been doing these events for
about five years now. This
is a privilege for us to be
part of this. Jack Daniels
spends a lot of effort and
money to help the men and
ooo


women of the armed forces
and believe in what they
are doing," said Morgan.
"I was in the Army for 10
years and in the Reserves
for almost seven years, so
I know what they are expe-
riencing. I've also been to
Iraq four times as an enter-
tainer. I really appreci-
ate all they are doing. It's
important to support them
and this is our way of doing
that."
After the concert, mem-
bers of the audience voiced
how thrilled they were to
see Morgan perform here.
"His performance was
amazing. I was just totally
blown out of the water. I
never expected a big coun-
try star like Craig Morgan
to come out to the base to
perform for us," said OS3
Tasha Newton ofVP-30.
Operation USO Care
Package enables the pub-
lic to show their support
of our men and women in
uniform. Due to the threat
of anthrax following Sept.
11, 2001, the Department
of Defense suspended its
practice of forwarding cor-
respondence and individual
care packages addressed
to "Any Service Member."
In response, the USO of
Metropolitan Washington
created the Operation USO
Care Package program to
boost morale and provide a

"We do this because we
must remember those who
have spilled their blood
for us and our country. I
know this is difficult for the
families to be here today,
but it's something we must
do to remember our fallen
comrades," said Newman.
After recognizing some
of the families in atten-
dance, he told them, "You
have paid the sacrifice
that I can't imagine. Those
dark days of late April and
early May 2004, less than
three years after 9/11, will
be etched in our memories
forever. Not a day should
go by that we don't remem-
ber those who have paid
the ultimate sacrifice and
NMCB-14 has paid that.
There have been 15 KIAs
during Operation Iraqi
Freedom. Almost half of
those were on NMCB-14's
first deployment. I thank
you families, and I'm

One family member,
Karen Anderson brought
her daughter, Brandi to
pay tribute to her husband,
Michael.
"When I found out they
were having this memorial
to honor Michael, I thought
it was a great opportunity
to be around people who
feel like we do. They under-
stand how we feel because
many people don't under-
stand what we've been
through," she said.
Another guest was retired
BU2 Pete Herrick who lost
a leg and was left a quad-
riplegic by a mortar attack
that killed five of his fellow
Seabees on May 2, 2004.

MDA seeks volunteers
for 2008 summer camp
The Muscular Dystrophy Associ-
ation is searching for summer
camp volunteers who are looking
for a rewarding and memorable
experience. Volunteercounselors
are needed to assist young
people with neuromuscular
diseases and help them enjoy
a fun-filled MDA summer camp
June 7-12 at Epworth by the
Sea, St. Simons Island, Ga.
Applicants must be at least 16
years old and able to lift and
care for a young person between
the ages of 6 and 21. Each
volunteer counselor becomes
a companion to a camper with
a neuromuscular disease and
helps them with daily activities
such as eating, bathing and
dressing. Counselors will also
assist campers with recreational
activities such as arts and crafts,
swimming and horseback riding.
To obtain a volunteer application
or learn about other ways to
support MDA's summer camp
program, call (800) 572-1717.
More information about summer
camp volunteers can be found at
www.mda.org/clinics/camp.
JAA Ambassador
Volunteer Program
needs volunteers
If you enjoy assisting people,
are in good health, can stand on
your feet at least four hours or
more, can volunteer at least four
or more hours in a day per week
(volunteers are needed seven
days a week from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.,
we can use you at the Jacksonville
International Airport. We are looking
for volunteers to assist passengers,
visitors, airport tenants and the
Jacksonville Aviation Authority. If
interested, please contact Yvonne
Pooler at 741-2006/3723.


Boy Scouts
need some help
The Boy Scouts of America is
currently in need of volunteers
to work with at risk children in
two communities in Jacksonville.
The program is primarily in the
afternoon for one hour, one
day a week. We also have
some weekend activities that
the volunteers may attend. We
understand that monetary gifts
are good, but time is the most
precious commodity of all, and
being a team leader can mean a
lot to a young child. If not a team
leader, be a presenter to share
your special skills with children. If
interested please contact Aubrey
Smith at 504-6182.


Mentors needed
The Children's Home Society
is looking for volunteers to
become mentors to children
ages 4-15 who have a parent
incarcerated in prison. For more
information, call 493-7747.
Homeless shelter
The I.M. Sulzbacher Center for
the Homeless serves more than
1,000 meals per day, every day
of the year. These meals are
prepared and served with the
help of over 100 civic, religious
and business organizations from
the Jacksonville community.
Serving meals at the center
is a fun and feel-good way to
give back to the community. For
information about volunteering
at the I.M. Sulzbacher Center for
the Homeless, call 394-1356.


emony, there was no way
I wasn't going to make it
here for the ceremony. It
means a lot to know that
I'm still involved with the
Seabees," said Herrick."
While the memorial ser-
vice is held each year to
remember those lost, it also
gives family members the
assurance that the Navy
family is there for them.
"There is still a lot of
pain and scars that are
not completely healed and
I'm not sure they ever will
be. This is the first year,
we've had some wives and
parents join us. It's taken
some time for them to be
able to associate with us
and remember in a positive
way, the contributions of
their husband or son," said
Newman.


P-8A: Public given a chance to sound off


From Page 1


"We have been travel-
ing to several different
bases nationwide, visit-
ing all the sites that these
aircraft may be based out
of. These site include NAS
Jax, NAS Whidbey Island,
Wash., NAS North Island
in San Diego and Marine
Corps Base Hawaii in
Kaneohe Bay to introduce
the DEIS to the public
and give the community
the opportunity to voice
their environmental and
economic concerns, con-
tinued Keys. "The DEIS is
a nearly 1,000-page docu-
ment and the public can
give their comments as to
whether they think we did
the right analysis or let us
know if we missed some-
thing. These comments
will be incorporated into
the final EIS which will be
put out this fall."
The DEIS evaluated
potential environmental
consequences to resources
such as air quality, arche-
ological/cultural resourc-
es, coastal considerations,
noise, traffic, water qual-
ity, wetlands/floodplains
and the impact to threat-
ened and endangered spe-
cies.
"The P-8A is a military
version of the Boeing 737
which is the most common
aircraft flown commercial-
ly. There really is no envi-
ronmental impact if you
look at wetlands or endan-
gered species," stated Lisa
Padgett of FFC. "What
we will have is a change
in the noise because we
are transitioning from a
propeller aircraft to a jet
engine."


The transition will
reduce the number of
aircraft and personnel
required to complete the
patron squadron (VP) mis-
sion. "This is a huge tran-
sition for the Navy. These
planes are much easier to
maintain than the P-3 and
require far less mainte-
nance to increase their lia-
bility," said Chris Harding,
EIS project manager.
The transition will
reduce the VP's aircraft
Navy-wide from 120 to
84 and reduce the num-
ber of squadron personnel
from 4,760 to 3,309 creat-
ing more cost-effective and
efficient VP communities.
"It's very exciting to


be a crewmember and be
part of this transition. It's
a rolling transition, one
squadron at a time, one
base at a time," added
Harding.
The public has until
April 25 to voice their con-
cerns and can do so by sub-
mitting written comments
to Commander, Naval
Facilities Engineering
Command Atlantic, Attn:
MMA PM, 6506 Hampton
Boulevard, Norfolk, Va.
23508-1278. They can also
fax them to (757) 322-4894
or submit them through
the project Website at
www.MMAEIS.com using
the comments and contact

Defense Commissary Agency

Reusable cloth bags are fast replac-
ing "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 customers have
purchased nearly 270,000 at stores world-
wide.
While commissary shoppers 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 stew-
ards of taxpayer funds," said Rick Page,
DeCA's acting director, "and with reusable
shopping bags, we're applying 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 poly-
propylene. They are strong enough to hold
30 pounds of groceries and approximately
three-quarters of the bulk amount of a
paper bag. The reusable bags are machine
washable and can be recycled when no lon-
ger 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 commis-
sary shoppers switched to reusable cloth

Customers always have the option of

to bring clean, sturdy paper or plastic bags
to the commissary for reuse in bagging

just present them to the bagger immedi-

NAS Jax holds public hearing on new P-8A


Photos by Kaylee LaRocque
Videographer Ken Thomas from First Coast News interviews Chris Harding, P-8A "Poseidon"
multi-mission maritime aircraft environmental impact statement project manager during a
media availability event April 8 at NAS Jax. The event was held to familiarize members of the
media about the Draft Environmental Impact Statement which was developed to assess poten-
tial environmental consequences of the introduction of the P-8A to the U.S. Navy fleet.


By Kaylee LaRocque
Editor
A public hearing was held April 9 at
the Howard Johnson Inn in Orange
Park to hear comments for the draft
environmental impact statement (DEIS)
regarding the transition of the P-3 "Orion"
aircraft to the new P-8A "Poseidon" multi-
mission maritime aircraft.
The transition will occur from 2012 to
2019, possibly bringing five P-8A squad-
rons to NAS Jacksonville.
Representatives from U.S. Fleet Forces
Command and NAS Jax were on hand to
answer questions and explain the transi-
tion.
"The P-8A is a version of the 737 aircraft
and will eventually replace the P-3s which
have been in service since the mid-60s.
They are just wearing out and the Navy
needs a new aircraft," said Rick Keys, a
project officer for the P-8A fleet introduc-
tion with U.S. Fleet Forces Command


(FFC), based in Norfolk, Va.
"We're looking at several


alternatives


Ortega resident Kerry Dunlavey testifies
about her concerns regarding current noise
levels she has experienced with the P-3
"Orion" and asked what would happen if
the P-8A "Poseidon" aircraft squadrons are
brought to NAS Jax during a public hearing
at Howard Johnson's Inn Orange Park April 9.
Dunlavey was the only citizen from Ortega to
attend the meeting and voice her concerns at
the public hearing.
such as the number of squadrons that
would possibly be stationed at NAS Jax
and right now the Navy's preferred alter-
native is to bring five fleet squadrons here
and keep the fleet replacement squadron
here."

Memorial ceremony remembers fallen Seabees


B Kaylee LaRocque
Editor


Seven Seabees from Naval Mo-
bile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 14 who were killed in
Iraq in 2004 were remembered dur-
ing an emotional event at NAS Jax
Saturday.
The memorial service is held each
April to remember SW2(SW) Jason
Dwelley, EO3 Christopher Dickerson,
BU2 Michael Anderson, E02 Trace
Dossett, CM2 Scott McHugh, BU2
Robert Jenkins and SW3 Ronald
Ginther who were on deployment to
Al Anbar Province, Iraq in support of
Operation Iraqi Freedom.
"This ceremony today is to stop, pause
and honor our Seabees who lost their
lives so we can all live in a country with
the freedom we all cherish. Today, we
remember Seabees who live by our core
values of honor, courage and commit-
ment. We stop today for a few moments
so we never forget the enormous price
our brothers and their families paid so
we and all Americans can live our lives


without fear," said EOC Michael Falk at
the beginning of the memorial service.
NMCB-14 Commanding Officer
Cmdr. Gary Rouse then took the podi-
um to remind the audience of why they
were there.
"We started this ceremony a couple
years ago as a small get together to
keep alive the spirit of our seven killed
in action (KIAs) who gave the ultimate
sacrifice in 2004 during Operation Iraqi
Freedom. By God's grace, this service
has grown into a tribute to not only
the KIAs, but to their families and to
all of our fellow service members who
never made it back home or came home
wounded while bravely serving their
country," stated Rouse.
"It's uplifting to see so many here
today. I've always said that the military
is a very special family bonded together
in very special ways."
Rouse then introduced the guest
speaker, Capt. Scott Newman, com-
mander, 3rd Naval Construction
Regiment.

Commissary 'reset'

closure to improve

shopping experience
From the NAS ]ax Commissary

The NAS Jacksonville commissary will close at
4 p.m. Sunday and remain closed until April
23 while it undergoes a "reset" as part of the
Defense Commissary Agency's ongoing effort to
enhance the shopping experience.
'"We hate to inconvenience our customers with the
two-day closure, but this is something we'll all appre-
ciate when it's done," said Store Director John Moore.
The reset is part of an agency-wide program that
systematically changes how products are displayed on
shelving throughout a commissary in order to better
serve customer shopping patterns.
The goal is to give commissaries worldwide a more
customer-friendly product flow and a layout that is as
consistent as possible from location to location, accord-
ing to Steve Arland, chief of DeCA's store reset and
planogram team.
"Although we have to take into consideration that
no two commissaries are constructed exactly alike, a
customer-friendly product flow means dog food wii
be next to pet supplies instead of the charcoal, peanut
butter is best found next to the jam, and you shouldn't
have to cruise three different aisles to find all your
cleaning products. It's a simple matter of making the
commissary layout more sensible by 'resetting' the
store," he said.
DeCA is intent on making the commissary shopping
experience faster and easier making the commissary
the place to shop every day, not just on pay day. Onie
of the priorities is to help busy, active-duty shoppers
make a quick run through their commissary and get
home more quickly. "
"The whole idea, in a nutshell, is to get convg-.
,nience into the shopping experience," said Arlanz,
Consistency is also part of the reset equation. "Why
shouldn't you be able to go to different commissaries
and find basically the same layout?"
"We try not to inconvenience the customers while
resetting stores," said Arland, "but we often have to
close the store for a day, sometimes two, in order to ,
tear down the shelving and move it and restock."
"Our customers usually like the new layout onc
they get used to it. Sales increases always follow a
store reset and that's an indication that the user'
friendly product flow is a good change."
To makq changes easier for customers to follow;'
stores have aisle layout maps available as well as
generic item locators on their Web pages.
Store Web pages are under the locations link at
http://www.commissaries.com along with store hours,
contact information, store news and special customer
service features.

ON THE HOMEFRONT


hat's Smiley still doing in Pensacola?


-By Sarah Smiley
special Contributor

n Feb. 28th, Dustin had been
home from work. for several
hours when he suddenly said
:quite casually, "Oh, did I tell you
.that they [they always means the
fiiilitary' in sentences that begin like
this] added Bangor, Maine to our list
1o 'options' for the next duty station?"
'( put "options" in quotations because
the word wrongly implies that we
have any perceivable control over the
situation, which I'm about to prove.)
For months we had been waiting
to find out about Dustin's next set of
orders. We have been in Pensacola,
Fla. for going on five years now. Many
of our friends and family (perhaps
even you) had begun to forget that
Dustin is in the Navy.
It just didn't make sense that we
could stay in one place for so long,
even if the actual reason was that
Dustin had served as an instructor
pilot for fixed-wing aircraft before
switching to instruct in the helicop-
ters.
I've lived the last two years waiting
for the other shoe -- er, flight boot -- to
drop, either with Dustin being sent on
an IA (officially "individual augmen-
tation," but might also be described
as an inside sort of "draft") to Iraq or
orders to Guam.
I was always careful to write about
our exact location lest the powers that
be finally realize we had become so
comfortable here in Florida, we were
actually seeing trees grow and bloom.
I worried that they (meaning "the
military" again) might say, "What's
Smiley still doing in Pensacola? Let's
send that guy to Diego Garcia."
We've had it good for so long, we
knew our time was about to come. The

military likes to keep its people in a
constant state of alternating between
"this stinks" and "aren't we lucky?" I
think it's part of their retention plan,
but feels more like playing the slot
machines in Vegas.
It was a long, stressful period wait-
ing for the list of places Dustin might
be sent next. Especially because we
knew it could literally be anywhere
there is a reserve center. (Dustin's
next job will be commanding officer of
a reserve center.)
When the list of "options" (there's
that word again) finally came out,
it was like Uncle Sam had chucked
a handful of darts at the map. Our
"options" were in three of the four
corners of the country and many
places in between. But none of the
options were extreme or unusual.
There was Everett, Wash., Columbus,
Ga., Allentown, Pa. and some places
in Texas. We ranked our options, as
suggested by the detailer, in order of
preference from one to six.
As of Feb. 28th, however, I thought
our list was still in the rough stages
and had not been given to the detailer.
So when Dustin mentioned Bangor,
Maine being added as an option at the
last minute, I said, "Before you turn
in the list, let's look at it one more
time together and make sure we are
still in agreement."
Dustin said, "Um, yeah, well....
I kind of already turned in the list
today."
"You what? Before or after you
heard about Bangor?" (At this point,
Bangor was, in my mind, a city buried
under snow and ice and as foreign to
me as anyplace overseas.)
"Don't worry, I put Bangor number
seven of seven, so there's very little
chance we'll be sent there," he said.
Right then, Dustin had sealed his


HEY MONEYMANI


fate as the cause of all my problems
should the official orders not be to our
liking. I would always be able to say,
"If you had only let me see the list one
more time before you turned it in....."
On April Fool's Day (of course!),
Dustin came home, pulled out a chair
and said, "I think you should sit down
for this."
"We're going to the west coast again,
aren't we?"
Dustin twisted up his face and
smiled apologetically. "The boys have
always wanted to see snow, right?" he
said.
Yep, we're going to Bangor, Maine,
the city we fought over that day when
I found out Dustin had turned in
the "final" list without showing it to
me first. The city Dustin threw onto
the list before I even knew it existed
as an "option." The city I have been
using during the weeks since then to
antagonize Dustin, "You're going to be
awfully cold in Maine, Dustin." "'When
you're shoveling 20-feet of snow, will
you think about us here in Florida?"
However, after a lot of crying
and wondering if this could be rea-
sonable grounds for divorce, I have
come to a place of acceptance, and
yes, even uncontainable excitement
about the adventures that await us
in Bangor. Mainly: (1) Stephen King
lives there and (2) I won't have to
wear a bathing suit. But also: ski-
ing, Portland, Brunswick, LL Bean,,
Lake Moosehead, Acadia National
Park, trips to Canada, trips to Boston,
and of course, throwing snowballs at
Dustin.
I think Uncle Sam is having a very
good laugh at this. Or maybe Dustin's
detailer. Either one.

Are you at

risk for having

diabetes?

By Maj. Karen Fauber
DeCA Dietitian
Up to six million
of the 21 million
Americans who
have diabetes do not know
it. If you think you don't
have to worry about it,
think again.
In the last 15 years the
number of people in the
United States with the
disease has doubled every
year. As many as one in
five Americans over age
65, have it. Those under 65
are at risk, too, especially if
they have any of the other
risk factors that contribute
to developing diabetes.
Diabetes is more common
among African Americans,
Latinos, Native Americans,
Asian Americans, and
Pacific Islanders. And, there
is a rising trend in children
and teenagers developing
diabetes.
The following are risk fac-
tors for diabetes that every-
one should be aware of:
Family.history of dia-
betes
Being overweight or
obese
Having pre-diabetes
Having had diabetes
during pregnancy
To find out your risk for
diabetes take the risk test
at http://www.diabetes.org.
People who have diabetes
have a shortage of insulin
or a decreased ability to use
it. Insulin is a hormone that
acts like a key to open cells
allowing glucose to be used
for energy. When diabetes is
not controlled, blood sugar
and fats remain in the
blood which, overtime, can
damage the body organs.
Diabetes contributes to
heart disease, stroke, blind-
ness, kidney failure, ampu-
tations and death.
Recent studies have found
that lifestyle changes that
include moderate weight
loss and exercise can pre-
vent the onset of diabetes
among adults at high risk.
Also, research has found
that better blood sugar con-
trol reduces the risk for eye
disease, kidney disease,
and nerve disease by 40
percent in people with dia-
betes. Talk with your doctor
to find out if you need to be
examined for diabetes; the
process includes a simple
blood test.
You can help reduce your
risk for diabetes by doing
the following:

Officer Capt. Raquel Bono.
"This represents the hard
work of scores of people
who have labored to put
this contract together."
"Work began in 2005 to
put this project together,"
said NAVFAC Southeast
IPT South Atlantic
Operations Officer Cmdr.
Kevin Roye. "There have
been many challenges with
hospital construction over
the past two years due to
an abundance of hurricane
repairs along the gulf coast
and because it is special-
ized construction."
This project will provide
a 62,000 square foot, three-
story addition with an
eight-story elevator tower
along with approximately
28,000 square feet area of
alteration and partial reno-


vation in the existing facil-
ity. A new generator and
fuel tank will be added to
the project. Site work shall
include the construction of
a new retention pond, storm
and sanitary lines.
"With this addition, and
all the renovations and
enhanced technologies we
already have in place along
with our renewed focus on
healthcare excellence and
service, Naval Hospital
Jacksonville begins a new
era of excellence in caring
for our military family,"
said Bono.
The hospital will remain
in operation during the
construction and the work
will have limited phasing
to allow hospital functions
to be maintained with mini-
mal interruption.


"When we talk about spe-
cial construction challenges
we have to address stan-
dards of infection control,"
said Roye. "Most construc-
tion projects do not have to
adhere to such stringent
standards. As the hospital
will remain functioning,
the contractor will have to
take special precautions to
ensure the health, safety,
and well-being of not only
their staff, but also that
the safety of the patients at
the hospital is not compro-
mised."
NAVFAC Southeast has
an excellent safety record
with all of its construction
projects as well as within
the command's personnel
work space. As with any
construction project safety
is of the utmost importance.

HS-5 'Nightdippers'



conduct fly-in to



local Catholic school
By Lt. Allen Langston F \
HS-5 PAO I _'


HS-5 conducted a fly-
in to Annunciation
Catholic School
off Blanding Boulevard in
Middleburg on March 18.
Two pilots and three air-
crewmen flew an HH-60H
and landed it on the school's
athletic field for a static
display with the students
there to witness. In addi-
tion, eight maintainers, four
pilots and an administrative
representative attended the
event to answer questions
and introduce all the gear.
Lt. Dan Person and HS-5
Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Roy Undersander were
instrumental in arranging
the fly-in. Thanks to their
tireless effort, approximate-
ly 300 school children had
the opportunity to witness
what naval helicopter avia-
tion is all about. ,
Four stations were set
up, allowing the second
through eighth graders to
learn about squadron oper-
ations. The first station was
in the field at the helicop-
ter. There, pilots, aircrew-
men and maintainers were
waiting to answer questions
about the helicopter, search
and rescue gear, and basic
squadron operations.
Inside the library there
were two separate stations;
one for pilots to discuss the
squadron's mission areas
and another where mem-
bers of the parachute rig-
ging shop demonstrated the
importance of survival gear.
The final station was the

What do you want to be
when you grow up? Do you
remember that question?
Some of us may still be trying to
formulate the answer. It is a favor-
ite question we periodically ask our
kids.
The answers our children give are
usually a policeman, fireman or a
nurse. Some children get visionary
and may say a movie star, singer,
doctor, ball player and maybe even...
chaplain. One imaginative 6-year-old
responded, "when I grow up, I want to
be either a car mechanic or a garbage
collector." When asked as to why he
quickly said, "So I can get dirty!"
Let's have some fun! Let us take
that same question and ask it another
way. Just for a moment, let's imagine
asking God what he wants us to be
when we grow up. All of a sudden it
is a whole new question. I suspect
that God's answer may be something
like this, "I want you to be different.
I want you to serve others. I want
you to be a helper." Why? Because
genuine service to others expresses
concern, generosity and elevates our
spirit to new levels of personal matu-
rity.
However, I am hard-pressed
to recall the number of times that
people have readily offered the fol-
lowing rejoinder, "I want to be a ser-
vant." I believe that culturally we
are discouraged to be servants. To
our ear it may sound unimportant to
be a servant. Our culture tends to
measure success in terms of titles,
duties and tasks. Our titles generally
describe who we are. Our culture has

To lead is to serve

By Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina-
Special Contributor ii* n m amp la


created a hierarchy of
duties and at the bot-
tom of the totem pole
is the title "servant." I
suspect that while most
of us know that we will
never be the greatest,
we sure don't want to
be the least. I also sus-
pect that most of us
would rather give an ,
order than wear a ser-
vant's apron. Yes, there
exists an inherent ten- *
sion in practicing ser-
vanthood. Where do I Chain
draw the line between Chaplain (L1
servanthood and slav-
ery or humility and self worth? Where
is the boundary that separates my
rights from others' rights?
To be sure, we need a renewed
understanding of what it means to be
a servant. I propose that if we aspire
to lead others we must be prepared
to serve others. Its corollary is that
genuine service will qualify us to lead
with integrity. Therefore, in renew-
ing and defining our understanding
of leadership we need to identify its
principle, its profile and its promise.
The principle of servant leadership:
This principle dictates that we can-
not exercise effective leadership until
we are postured to serve others. This
means that mission accomplishment
is meaningless if we are not taking
care of others. The servant leader'
seeks to meet goals and see to the
needs of others. Both tasks need to be

accomplished simulta-
neously. Servant lead-
ership is practiced both
at work and at home.
The profile of the
servant: The profile is
exemplified through
those little things that
express encouragement
and concern. It is in
sending a greeting card,
making that special
phone call or sending
the impromptu email.
It consists in those acts
of self-sacrifice for the
sake of another.


The promise of ser-
vice: Its promise is realized in selfless
personal fulfillment and self-realiza-
tion as a person identifies with the
will of God for his creation. His/her
satisfaction comes from knowing
that he/she has made a difference in
another's life.
There's a small denomination of
Baptists known as Primitive Baptists.
Among some of their traditions is a
very distinctive practice of "foot wash-
ing." That is, at one point in their
worship service they wash each oth-
er's feet. Not only do they have the
cleanest feet in Christendom, but they
also do it as a cogent reminder of ser-
vanthood.
Indeed, to be a servant requires
courage, humility and genuine con-
cern. True service doesn't distinguish
big from small opportunities. True
service delights in God's approval!

HS-5 reenlistment numbers continue to grow
By Lt. Allen Langston W
HS-5 PAO dII .i"'pp- a o


The "Nightdippers" of
HS-5 have kept up
their torrid pace of
reenlistments.
If the first quarter of
2008 is any indication,
then HS-5 should be in line
for its third consecutive
CFFC Retention Excellence
Award. Through March 31,
16 Sailors have reenlisted,
and in the last two weeks
12 have resigned on the dot-
ted line. The list includes
E-4s all the way up to chief
petty officer.
On 20 March. three
members of the HS-5
Administration Department
held their reenlistment cer-
emony at the Lone Sailor
Memorial in downtown
Jacksonville.
Not to be outdone, on
March 28. six more squad-
ron members held their
ceremony downtown at the
memorial as well. Other
Sailors have chosen vari-
ous places around NAS
Jacksonville to reenlist
such as Hangar 116 and
Mulberry Cove Marina.
These Sailors have
extended the honor of
allowing their squadron
members to be reenlisting
officers from division offi-
cers to department heads to
the commanding officer.
The shear number and
the group format that these
young Sailors have chosen,
speak volumes of the U.S.
Navy and HS-5.
It demonstrates the cama-
raderie that Sailors develop
which is an integral part of
retention.

Cruz-Castro to represent U.S. on All-Military Baseball Team
By Loren Barnes q." ' ",
NH jacksonville Public Affairs
4.Ila


Carlos Cruz-Castro recently received his uniform to
compete on the U.S. All-Military Baseball Team
for 2008. A hospital corpsman second class, Cruz-
Castro is a seasoned battlefield "Devil Doc" who is cur-
rently the leading petty officer (LPO) in Naval Hospital
Jacksonville's Same Day Surgery Clinic. With 10 years
of service he wears the Fleet Marine Force Warfare
Specialist designation and Surface Warfare designation
proudly.
He is also one heck of a ball player. He keeps his oppo-
nents guessing as a switch hitter and his favorite spots
on the field are second base and shortstop, although he
enjoys fielding as well.
Selected to play second base with the team, Cruz-Castro
should fill the bill. "I love the middle infield and shortstop
positions. You have to be in constant movement, have a
strong arm, speed and be in continual contact with the
pitcher and catcher," he said.
He also will be an asset to the batting line-up. "As a
switch hitter I can use the entire field to my advantage,
depending on the situation as to whether it is to advance a
runner or trick the infield, keeping them off balance," con-
tinued Cruz-Castro. "You keep them guessing, keep them
on their toes."
The All-Military Baseball Team's Web site describes the
team, which was established in 1990, as "the fastest grow-
ing, largest, most successful and only 'joint' armed forces
baseball program ever created. More than 30 military
programs have been established in all services worldwide
in an effort to assemble the most talented U.S. Military
All-Stars team to compete against the finest professional,
independent and summer collegiate programs in the
world."
Cruz-Castro said that being selected for such a team is
an honor. "I look forward to serving as an ambassador for
my nation and the Navy, and I am proud to pursue the
mission of the All-Military Team," he stated. That mission
is "to promote the awareness of all Americans in support
of the honorable sacrifices our armed forces make at the
"Tip of the Spear."
Cruz-Castro has been there. Just prior to and during the
tragic events of 9/11, he served abroad in a joint training
mission with Marine Expeditionary Unit 24 which took
him to Kosovo, Russia, Israel, Turkey, Romania, the
Ukraine and several Mediterranean nations. After the
World Trade Center attacks, he and the units involved
in that mission went on alert ready to pursue missions
as tasked. After returning to Camp Lejeune, N.C., he
was subsequently deployed to Iraq during Operation
Iraqi Freedom where he was with the 2nd Force Service
Support Group providing combat support to U.S. Marines
and other allied elements pushing toward Baghdad.
Today, he and all of Navy Medicine remain ready to
deploy "anytime, anywhere."
Medicine has been a good fit for Cruz-Castro as he
enjoys serving others. He is proud of his service and
he says his medical duties always come first. In Iraq,
he recalled sometimes getting only 10 hours of sleep a

week as he worked with a team of "Devil Docs" caring for
wounded. "What made this worth it," he said, "was the
feedback of a Marine grabbing my forearm strongly, star-
ing me in the eyes and thanking me for getting him back
to his family alive."
Cruz-Castro recalled working with three other hospital
corpsmen, all of whom he said were remarkable human
beings. They worked together as a team and they spent
their off duty hours working out together to keep in shape.
A couple of them, he recalled, aspired to become Navy
SEALs. One of those, HM3 Fernando Mendezaceves,
Cruz-Castro said was a go to Sailor who made pull-ups
look easy.
Sadly, Mendezaceves was cut down by crossfire in Al
Ramadi. Hospital corpsmen have accounted for more than
30 active duty deaths in this war, sacrificing their lives
caring for the Soldiers and Marines they consider family.
After four intense months in Iraq, Cruz-Castro returned
to the U.S. and was assigned to the main operating room
at Naval Hospital Jacksonville. Off duty, he has been
playing ball with the Mayport Cruisers, a regional mili-
tary, semi-pro team. He's played middle infield, second
base, shortstop and outfield and his switch-hitting prow-
ess has resulted in his being the team's third and fourth
clutch hitter.


HM2(FMF/SW) Carlos Cruz-Castro rounds first after a hit.
Castro was a clutch hitter for the Mayport Cruisers, a semi-
pro military team at NS Mayport. As a switch-hitter, he
should keep the opposing team's fielders guessing when he
comes to bat.
Vick Miller, the Cruiser's coach who also helped with
the All-Military tryouts at NS Mayport, said Cruz-Castro
brings with him a great team spirit. "He has a team atti-
tude. Cruz-Castro has quick hands on delivery and he's a
good base hitter," said Miller. "Being a switch hitter is a
definite positive."
Love of baseball is something Cruz-Castro says he got
from his father, Gregorio. He recalled always seeing his
father in a baseball uniform with local teams and that's
what inspired him to play. A foreman in an Alleghany
industrial plant, Gregorio instilled in his son a work ethic
and discipline that has seen him through both his military
and baseball pursuits.
Cruz-Castro said the fact that he was smaller than other
kids competing in his New York hometown forced him to
try harder. "I had to be very competitive. I had to be stron-
ger, faster. I had to work three times harder than anyone
else," he said.
Cruz-Castro's family returned to Puerto Rico when he
was 14. There, team coaches and teammates were amazed
at how well he played at so young an age. He played
ball with the Lajas and San Antonio, Aguadilla baseball
teams. Cruz-Castro recalled always being the first in the
park and constantly practicing.
He was able to learn from the best. Aquadilla is a region
known for producing outstanding baseball players includ-
ing major league slugger and New York Mets first base-
man Carlos Delgado. Cruz-Castro said he played three
years with Delgado in Puerto Rico and was coached by the
baseball star's father, Carlos.

ThanksUSA offers scholarships to military spouses, dependents


From ThanksUSA

T hanksUSA, a charitable effort

to mobilize Americans of all
ages to "thank" our active-
duty troops by providing college
scholarships to their spouses and
dependents, has opened its third
year of accepting applications for
scholarships.
"America's troops provide an
invaluable service to our country
and the sacrifice of these men and
women and their families should not
Zome at the expense of their educa-
tional pursuits," said Carolyn Ferek


of ThanksUSA. "We hope, that in a
small way, these scholarships reflect
the nation's appreciation for their
service to help defend our freedom."
Interested applicants can find
more information, eligibility require-
ments and the official application
form at www.ThanksUSA.org.
Applications are being accepted now
through May 15.
Over the past two years,
ThanksUSA has awarded nearly $4
million in need-based, post-second-

BASEBALL: Cruz-Castro named to all-star team


From Page 11


His disciplined practice paid off
when he had the opportunity to
represent Puerto Rico in the Latin
American Championships in Puerto
Rico. They competed against Mexico,
Venezuela, Panama, Dominican
Republic, St. Thomas, St. Croix,
Curacao and Trinidad finishing third
in the games. At the time, Cruz-
Castro was batting .343.
With a wealth of experience and
.several years preparing for tryouts
May to have his military duties dis-
Mot his plans, Cruz-Castro is having
great 2008. He's preparing for the
Military Team's Central American
iir. The team will play the best non-
r teams the Dominican Republic,
ra-nama and Nicaragua can field.
Cruz-Castro said, "Baseball is


only one of the responsibilities we're
tasked with. Off field we'll be visiting
hospitals, assisting coaches, perform-
ing baseball clinics and distributing
free gear donated by major league
baseball to children. Most important-
ly, we're diplomats and a direct rep-
resentation of our nation, therefore
reflecting at all times our Navy core
values and impacting others in a posi-
tive way." He added, "I feel blessed
by the opportunity the Lord has pro-
vided me, to represent not only our
nation but him as well."
The All-Military Team will return
to the U.S. in mid-May when they will
begin their 19th Red, White and Blue
Tour of America competing against
regional AAA and collegiate teams
across the nation. They'll be in Florida
in July. See the team's schedule at
www.usmilitaryallstars.us/. The sea-


son winds up with the inaugural USA
World Series in Orlando, Aug. 1-10.
Another honor came when Cruz-
Castro was asked to throw the first
pitch at a Jacksonville Suns Military
Appreciation Day doubleheader, April 6.
Cruz-Castro said he is very appre-
ciative of the support he has received
from Naval Hospital Jacksonville,
especially his directorate. He said
his church, where he coaches T-ball
and softball, and his pastor, have also
been very committed and helpful.
He expressed his gratitude for the
sacrifices his wife, Ivelisse and his
son, Carlos have made as he's served
his nation and pursued his baseball
dreams. Cruz-Castro has already
passed on his love of the game to little
Carlos, who he describes as his "train-
ing partner." The 5-year-old is on his
third season in T-ball.

'Be Food Safe' helps prevent foodbome illnesses


By KeAvin Robinson
Defense Commissary Agency


Clean, separate, cook
and chill: A new
twist on an old mes-
sage will be rolling out to
commissary customers as
part of "Be Food Safe," a
new government-sponsored
program to help prevent
foodborne illnesses in the
home.
"Be Food Safe" brings
the Defense Commissary
Agency (DeCA) and 27
commercial retail grocery
chains together in partici-
pating with the Partnership
for Food Safety Education
and its government liaisons
- the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, U.S. Food and
Drug Administration and
U.S. Center for Disease
Control and Prevention. The
goal is to help consumers
become more aware of prop-
er food-handling measures
in the home, said Rick Page,
DeCA's acting director.


"If you take a moment
to practice 'Be Food Safe's'
four simple guidelines and
read the instructions on
the product label, you can
dramatically reduce your
chances of getting a food-
borne illness," Page said.
"When our customers visit
any of our stores or the
DeCA Web site, http://com-
missaries.com, they will see
information to help them
keep their food safe."
To help introduce this
yearlong campaign to its
customers, DeCA will begin
to unveil a series of post-
ers, flyers, circular ads and
informational brochures
that echo the four core food
safety practices of clean,
separate, cook and chill:
Clean Frequent clean-
ing can reduce spread of
bacteria on hands, cutting
boards, knives and kitchen
countertops. Always wash
hands with warm water
and soap for 20 seconds


before and after handling
food.
Separate To avoid
cross-contamination by bac-
teria, keep raw meat, poul-
try and seafood and their
juices away from ready-to-
eat foods.
Cook Improper heat-
ing and preparation can
allow bacteria to survive.

Navy Exchange helps sustain our environment


From NEXCOM
As good stewards of the Sailors' dollars, the Navy
Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) is
always looking for ways to save money. However,
NEXCOM is always looking for ways to help sustain the
environment as well.
"NEXCOM's strategy to help the environment is
very much aligned with the Navy's strategy and theme
'Sustaining Our Environment Protecting Our Freedom.,"'
said Rear Adm. Robert Bianchi, commander, NEXCOM.
"Nearly every facet of the Navy Exchange System is
involved in conserving our natural resources for the
future. It's something we've been practicing for the past
several years."
NEXCOM vending was one of the first military exchange
programs to install energy-efficient vending machine
technology, the VM2IQTM' VendingMiser, to help lower
energy costs. The VM2IQTM is designed to be installed
inside existing vending machines, and is capable of reduc-
ing energy consumed by about one-third, saving about
$100 per vending machine per year (depending upon
local Kilowatt per hour rate). Using a motion sensor,
VendingMiser powers down a vending machine when the
surrounding area is unoccupied and automatically re-pow-
ers the vending machine when the area is reoccupied. In
addition, the VendingMiser is designed to automatically
activate the machine to power up to ensure product within
the machine is always cold.
NEXCOM's distribution centers also have worked to
reduce energy consumption. At the distribution centers
in Pensacola, Fla., and Norfolk, Va., its high intensity
discharge fixtures were replaced with six fluorescent tube
hi-bay fixtures that have a higher lamp life for half the
cost. NEXCOM estimates a 33-37 percent savings per
year respectively. In the Chino, Calif., distribution center
warehouse, 490 light fixtures were replaced. In addition,
since the Chino distribution center has skylights, light
fixtures with photocells were installed so that during the
day, the lights will automatically turn off. These changes
should bring a savings of about $87,900 per year.
The Great Lakes, Ill., distribution center will soon
receive 180 new lighting fixtures as well. In addition,
all four warehouse facilities have or will have installed
motion sensors controlling the new light fixture and there-
fore, will only be used when actually needed. The total
annual electric use savings for these warehouses will
approach $400,000 per year.
Several Navy Exchanges (NEXs) have also completed
energy retrofits, which include installing power factor cor-
rection devices on air conditioning units and devices on


the light fixtures to reduce voltage and lighting levels. As
new NEXs are built, some of the technology that has been
incorporated in the retrofitted stores is automatically put
in the new stores. Thus, the NEX can be energy efficient
from the time it opens its doors.
In an effort to help the Department of Defense (DoD)
and Navy meet its objective of reducing the reliance
on petroleum and meet the requirements of Executive
Order 13423, NEXCOM has introduced several alterna-
tive fuel facilities at naval installations across the coun-
try. Biodiesel 20 (1320) is now offered at NS Norfolk and
NAS Oceana, Va.; Quarters K, Arlington,Va.; Naval
Surface Warfare Division, Crane, Ind.; Naval Weapons
Station Charleston, SC, NSB Kings Bay, Ga. and Naval
Academy Annapolis, Md. Ethanol 85 (E85) is also offered
at Quarters K and Crane, Ind. as well as NAS Jacksonville
and NS Mayport. Compressed natural gas (CNG) is the
alternative offering at the Quarters K gas station in
Washington, DC.
NEXCOM recently awarded a multi-award contract for
the supply and infrastructure development of E85 and
B20 alternative fuel. This contract is a delivery-order
contract enabling expansion opportunities at sites where
alternative fuels are required including other military
exchanges.
"This contract will reinforce collaboration / cooperation
with Chief of Naval Installations Command (CNIC) in
providing alternative fuels to support Navy-wide fuels pro-
gram," said Larry Boone, NEXCOM's Automotive Program
manager. "Further, DoD's biofuels study, under H.R. 5122
National Defense Authorization Act of 2007, recommends
that DoD use military exchanges for developing biofuels
infrastructure. This contract enables the first step toward
that development."
NEX Autoports or auto service centers also do their
part in recycling materials. Everything from used oil and
antifreeze to worn tires to replaced oil and air filters get
recycled instead of being thrown in the landfill.
NEXCOM's Ship's Store Program has introduced Ozone
washing technology to the fleet as a way to save energy
and cut down on the amount of chemicals used aboard
shipboard laundries. Currently, three Navy ships have
modified its ship's laundry washers to add Ozone technol-
ogy to the wash cycle. These new washers take in air from
the ship's atmosphere and along with a power cell "charge"
the air using ultraviolet light to create ozone. The ozone
is then injected into the cold water cycle. Because it is so
reactive, ozone readily attaches itself to fatty and other
soils that bind dirt to clothing, destroying them rapidly at
the molecular-level. Ozone washing is extremely valuable
to the fleet in a number of ways: Ozone acts as a sanitiz-

ing and bleaching agent that makes the clothing whiter,
brighter and smell nicer; it allows ships to reduce the
amount of standard chemicals being used which is good
for the environment; it allows ships to wash in cold water
reducing the need for ships to produce large amounts of
hot water with associated costs; and the product is biode-
gradable as it reverts back to "air."
The Navy Lodge Program has several programs in place
that emphasize the importance of water and energy con-
servation. The Good Earthkeeping Program gives guests
the option of reusing their towels during their stay to
reduce energy costs.
The potential for savings is great since water consump-
tion for in-house laundry is reduced, as are energy costs
and chemical use. In addition, Navy Lodges are install-
ing energy efficient light fixtures and light bulbs, motion
detection light switches in all public restrooms and storage
rooms as well as installing an energy management system
to control heat and air conditioning in guest rooms. Each
Navy Lodge room has also had low flow water faucets and
showerheads installed to save on water consumption.
In NEXs, customers also have the option of purchasing
NEX Green bags to use instead of plastic bags. These reus-
able/recyclable bags are made of a sturdy mesh, sewn from
100 percent polypropylene that can withstand repeated
usage and can be recycled when no longer usable.
As part of each naval installation, NEXs worldwide also
participate in various recycling and environmental protec-
tion programs. Base clean up efforts, tree planting initia-
tives and education programs are just part of what NEXs
do to support the Navy, its customers and the community
to help protect the environment.

forms at NAS Jacksonville after the USO care package stuffing
party April 10.

USO: Stuffing event/concert

brings out the volunteers


From Page 1

Things the troops have spe-
Mifically communicated to the
USO that they would like.
Each package can be a little
Different but all have stan-
dard elements such as a pre-
paid international phone card
and hygiene kit. Others items
may include baby wipes, pop-
M.eorn, playing cards, gum, cof-
fee and sunscreen," she con-
itinued.
1"While most of the packag-
'Us1 were to be shipped direct-
ily'to the troops serving in
Iraq and Afghanistan, some
were used to replenish the
stock at the NAS Jax USO
r the troops departing
6?m the base.
Before the stuffing event,
Zaine Rogers, president
tLthe USO in Washington,
DXE. and coordinator of the
Zvent, told the volunteers
tow Operation USO Care
package came about and
introduced Amy Vazquez,
who came to participate in
the stuffing party. Vazquez
i the mother of local fallen
Tlro Cpl. Joshua Watkins
1ho was completing his
second tour of duty in Iraq
5wien he was fatally wound-
ed near Fallujah in 2006.
; "I'm here today because
, love this country and my
'son loved this country and
3 so appreciate anyone who
puts on a uniform," said
Amy Vazquez.
As the volunteers formed
lines down the tables, the
bags were stuffed with
goodies and passed along
,until they were full. They
were then packed into
boxes, sealed and placed on
pallets. As each pallet was
loaded with 500 care pack-
ages, a siren went off let-
ting the volunteers know
their progress.
: "This is a great event
'to support the troops.
Anything we can do for wel-
fare and morale is good,"
said ACC(AW/SW) Chris
Simmons of Air Ops who is
going to Iraq on an individ-
ual augmentee tour later
this month. "I'm ready to
go and do my part and look
forward to receiving pack-
ages like this when I'm over
there."
SAfter the stuffing party,
,volunteers were treated
to a barbecue dinner and
free concert by Morgan who
hang some of his hits from
-his latest CD, "Little Bit of
Life."
i "I'm here today to sup-
port the troops, the men
and women of the Armed
Forces. We teamed up with
Jack Daniels and have
been doing these events for
about five years now. This
is a privilege for us to be
part of this. Jack Daniels
spends a lot of effort and
money to help the men and


women of the armed forces
and believe in what they
are doing," said Morgan.
"I was in the Army for 10
years and in the Reserves
for almost seven years, so
I know what they are expe-
riencing. I've also been to
Iraq four times as an enter-
tainer. I really appreci-
ate all they are doing. It's
important to support them
and this is our way of doing
that."
After the concert, mem-
bers of the audience voiced
how thrilled they were to
see Morgan perform here.
"His performance was
amazing. I was just totally
blown out of the water. I
never expected a big coun-
try star like Craig Morgan
to come out to the base to
perform for us," said OS3
Tasha Newton of VP-30.
Operation USO Care
Package enables the pub-
lic to show their support
of our men and women in
uniform. Due to the threat
of anthrax following Sept.
11, 2001, the Department
of Defense suspended its
practice of forwarding cor-
respondence and individual
care packages addressed
to "Any Service Member."
In response, the USO of
Metropolitan Washington
created the Operation USO
Care Package program to
boost morale and provide a

HELPING HANDS

Capt. Scott Newman, commander, 3rd Naval Construction Regiment, and Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion 14 Commanding Officer Cmdr. Gary Rouse, lay a wreath with seven
yellow ribbons in front of a plaque honoring the seven fallen shipmates.

"We do this because we
must remember those who
have spilled their blood
for us and our country. I
know this is difficult for the
families to be here today,
but it's something we must
do to remember our fallen
comrades," said Newman.
After recognizing some
of the families in atten-
dance, he told them, "You
have paid the sacrifice
that I can't imagine. Those
dark days of late April and
early May 2004, less than
three years after 9/11, will
be etched in our memories
forever. Not a day should
go by that we don't remem-
ber those who have paid
the ultimate sacrifice and
NMCB-14 has paid that.
There have been 15 KIAs
during Operation Iraqi
Freedom. Almost half of
those were on NMCB-14's
first deployment. I thank
you families, and I'm

sorry."
One family member,
Karen Anderson brought
her daughter, Brandi to
pay tribute to her husband,
Michael.
"When I found out they
were having this memorial
to honor Michael, I thought
it was a great opportunity
to be around people who
feel like we do. They under-
stand how we feel because
many people don't under-
stand what we've been.
through," she said.
Another guest was retired
BU2 Pete Herrick who lost
a leg and was left a quad-
riplegic by a mortar attack
that killed five of his fellow
Seabees on May 2, 2004.
"It's an incredible honor
to be here today. When I
found out about this cer-


emony, there was no way
I wasn't going to make it
here for the ceremony. It
means a lot to know that
I'm still involved with the
Seabees," said Herrick."
While the memorial ser-
vice is held each year to
remember those lost, it also
gives family members the
assurance that the Navy
family is there for them.
"There is still a lot of
pain and scars that are
not completely healed and
I'm not sure they ever will
be. This is the first year,
we've had some wives and
parents join us. It's taken
some time for them to be
able to associate with us
and remember in a positive
way, the contributions of
their husband or son," said
Newman.


P-8A: Public given a chance to sound off ,


From Page 1

"We have been travel-
ing to several different
bases nationwide, visit-
ing all the sites that these
aircraft may be based out
of. These site include NAS
Jax, NAS Whidbey Island,
Wash., NAS North Island
in San Diego and Marine
Corps Base Hawaii in
Kaneohe Bay to introduce
the DEIS to the public
and give the community
the opportunity to voice
their environmental and
economic concerns," con-
tinued Keys. "The DEIS is
a nearly 1,000-page docu-
ment and the public can
give their comments as to
whether they think we did
the right analysis or let us
know if we missed some-
thing. These comments
will be incorporated into
the final EIS which will be
put out this fall."
The DEIS evaluated
potential environmental
consequences to resources
such as air quality, arche-
ological/cultural resourc-
es, coastal considerations,
noise, traffic, water qual-
ity, wetlands/floodplains
and the impact to threat-
ened and endangered spe-
cies.
"The P-8A is a military
version of the Boeing 737
which is the most common
aircraft flown commercial-
ly. There really is no envi-
ronmental impact if you
look at wetlands or endan-
gered species," stated Lisa
Padgett of FFC. "What
we will have is a change
in the noise because we
are transitioning from a
propeller aircraft to a jet
engine."


The transition will
reduce the number of
aircraft and personnel
required to complete the
patron squadron (VP) mis-
sion. "This is a huge tran-
sition for the Navy. These
planes are much easier to
maintain than the P-3 and
require far less mainte-
nance to increase their lia-
bility," said Chris Harding,
EIS project manager.
The transition will
reduce the VP's aircraft
Navy-wide from 120 to
84 and reduce the num-
ber of squadron personnel
from 4,760 to 3,309 creat-
ing more cost-effective and
efficient VP communities.
"It's very exciting to


be a crewmember and be
part of this transition. It's
a rolling transition, one
squadron at a time, one
base at a time," added
Harding.
The public has until
April 25 to voice their con-
cerns and can do so by sub-
mitting written comments
to Commander, Naval
Facilities Engineering
Command Atlantic, Attn:
MMA PM, 6506 Hampton
Boulevard, Norfolk, Va.
23508-1278. They can also
fax them to (757) 322-4894
or submit them through
the project Website at
www.MMAEIS.com using
the comments and contact

MDA seeks volunteers
for 2008 summer camp
The Muscular Dystrophy Associ-
ation is searching for summer
camp volunteers who are looking
for a rewarding and memorable
experience. Volunteercounselors
are needed to assist young
people with neuromuscular
diseases and help them enjoy
a fun-filled MDA summer camp
June 7-12 at Epworth by the
Sea, St. Simons Island, Ga.
Applicants must be at least 16
years old and able to lift and
care for a young person between
the ages of 6 and 21. Each
volunteer counselor becomes
a companion to a camper with
a neuromuscular disease and
helps them with daily activities
such as eating, bathing and
dressing. Counselors will also
assist campers with recreational
activities such as arts and crafts,
swimming and horseback riding.
To obtain a volunteer application
or learn about other ways to
support MDA's summer camp
program, call (800) 572-1717.
More information about summer

Volunteer Program
needs volunteers
If you enjoy assisting people,
are in good health, can stand on
your feet at least four hours or

currently in need of volunteers
to work with at risk children in
two communities in Jacksonville.
The program is primarily in the
afternoon for one hour, one
day a week. We also have
some weekend activities that
the volunteers may attend. We
understand that monetary gifts
are good, but time is the most
precious commodity of all, and
being a team leader can mean a
lot to a young child. If not a team

your special skills with children. If
interested please contact Aubrey
Smith at 504-6182.

the Jacksonville community.
Serving meals at the center

DeCA's got recycling in the bag


By Lynda Valentine and Caroline Williams
Defense Commissary Agency
Reusable cloth bags are fast replac-
ing "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 customers have
purchased nearly 270,000 at stores world-
wide.
While commissary shoppers 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 stew-
ards of taxpayer funds," said Rick Page,
DeCA's acting director, "and with reusable
shopping bags, we're applying 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 poly-
propylene. They are strong enough to hold
30 pounds of groceries and approximately
three-quarters of the bulk amount of a
paper bag. The reusable bags are machine
washable and can be recycled when no lon-
ger 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 commis-
sary shoppers switched to reusable cloth


bags, the agency would save more than $2
million annually.
Customers always have the option of
using their own reusable cloth bags. In
addition, 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 immedi-
ately before bagging begins.
Product availability -and program guide-
lines may differ at overseas commissar-
ies. For more information about your com-
missary benefit, visit DeCA's Web site at
http://www.commissaries.com.
