relaunch event was held
April 16 to announce new chang-
es to the program that was start-
ed at NAS Jax in November to
benefit military spouses.
The program was created by the
U.S. Departments of Defense and
Labor to help spouses begin and
continue to advance in a career
field which can sometimes be
challenging due to the frequent
moves required of military fami-
lies.
The program offers fund-
ing to eligible military spouses
for expenses related to postsec-
ondary education and training
including: tuition, books, equip-
ment, credentialing and licensing

Jacksonville personnel gathered for their annual tri-com-
mand picnic here April 11.
This year's picnic featured slow-grilled cooking, the
opportunity for inter-command socializing, and some
friendly competition for the coveted annual physical chal-
lenge trophy.
Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) committees
from the three commands coordinated their efforts to
organize the event. They set up tents, tables and chairs,
arranged for a disc-jockey, and coordinated a competitive
sporting tournament. The three commands competed in
horse shoes, a basketball free-throw shoot-out, a volleyball
tournament, and a sack race.
Leabone 'Lee' Williams with NDSL, started things off by
slow cooking meat for the picnic early in the morning.
"Today we had Lee's special barbeque ribs, some bar-
beque chicken, steaks, hot dogs and fried fish," explained

years, so this is first nature to me."
Homemade potato salad, pasta salad and chocolate-chip
cookies were among the many dishes brought to the pot-
luck-style picnic.
As the feasting slowed, the tournament began with the
first competition the horseshoe event. Lt. j. g. Bryan
Heintschel won the competition for Team NECE.
After horseshoes, the basketball free-throw shoot-out compe-
tition began. The first two rounds eliminated all but two con-
testants. Team NMSC's Lt. Rodney Robinson faced off against
Team NDSL's Larue Perkins in the third round for the best of
five attempts. Perkins won, sinking all five attempts.
Next was the volleyball event. NMSC came back from an
11-5 deficit to beat Team NECE and move on to the final
round against Team NDSL. Though Team NMSC had just
finished their previous game, they showed perseverance to
beat Team NDSL and win their first competition for the day.
The final event was the six-man relay sack race. Team
NMSC took an early lead and held onto it to win their sec-
ond competition in the tournament, and the trophy.

ON THE HOMEFRONT


The perils of fighting the Revolutionary


War in 2008 in the front yard


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


There is a book titled "The
Dangerous Book for Boys"
(Harper Collins), by brothers,
Conn and Hal Iggulden, that teaches
boys how to, basically, have a child-
hood. This used to come naturally
to them. (1 1.i i. they are evolving?)
In the book, there are lessons on
fishing, building forts and go-karts
and identifying spiders and insects.
The great success of "The Dangerous
Book for Boys" suggests that many
young boys don't already know how
to turn sticks into pretend guns or
chase little girls with lizards and
grasshoppers.
I have three boys. Not one of them
needs this book.
Just the other day, I was clipping
dead blooms off the rose bush when
Ford came around the corner with
a wooden musket hanging from his
shoulder by a leather strap. He was
wearing the triangle-shaped felt
hat (the one he calls the "George
Washington hat") that we bought in
Williamsburg, Va. that cost us more
than our lunch. But he was wearing
the hat backwards, so it looked more
like a felt sailor's cover than it did
something from the Revolutionary
War.
"You're gonna have to move, mom,"
Ford said. "The British are coming
and we've got a war to fight."
Just then, our neighbor's boy peeked
around the bushes looking suspicious-
ly British.
"Right here in the front yard?" I
asked. "Can't you have a war in the
backyard?"
Apparently they could not. You see,
the Potomac River, that thin strip
of white concrete that connects our
driveway to the our front door, is
indisputably in the front yard, not the
back, and it can't be moved. Also, our


front yard, once the burial place for
the body parts of several plastic fla-
mingoes left in our grass for a fund-
raiser and promptly destroyed by my
son (because "flamingoes aren't sup-
posed to stand on two legs anyway,"),
is the boys' preferred place to play,
mostly because--I'm sure of it--their
dad and I paid the equivalent of sev-
eral felt hats from Williamsburg to
have a large backyard with a fence.
Although, the boys' fondness for the
front yard might also be because the
they like to show all our neighbors
how they play tee-ball barefooted,
hang from the mailbox, pull each
other through the grass with a jump
rope (not recommended) and some-
times, urinate in the dirt.
Before I moved to the backyard to
make way for the Revolutionary War,
I wanted to finish pruning the roses
and take limbs off the River Birch,
because, of course, I want our front
yard to look nice when the boys are
beating each other on the ground.
As quick as I laid cut limbs on the
grass, the boys were hauling them off
to their "fort," and pretending they
were swords. But my middle son,
Owen (5), who thinks jokes involving
his bodily functions are the ultimate
in humor, doesn't understand the
Revolutionary War the same way that
Ford (7), who once read the phone
book just for fun, does.
"I'm going to go get a gun from the
garage," Owen told Ford.
I looked around for passersby,
ready to assure them that my boys
weren't talking about real guns. Just
another one of those tricky parts of
parenting in today's world. Except,
explaining toy guns would be much
easier, I thought, than those times I
had to explain why Owen yells "Let's
get Trojan ready" in the front yard.
(Answer: his tee-ball team is named
the Trojans.)
"They're not guns," Ford yelled at


HEY MONEYMAN!


Hey MoneyMan!
Without fail, every eve-
ning when my family sits
down for dinner we get a
call from someone trying to
sell us something or asking
us for a donation.
We don't have the extra
features on our phone, such
as caller ID, so we don't
know who is calling until
we answer the phone. How
can we make these calls
stop and, for once, have an
uninterrupted meal?
MoneyMan Sez:
It is not hard. Call the
Federal Communications
Commission at 888-382-
1222 or visit the Web site at
www.donotcall.gov and ask
to be put on the National
Do Not Call Registry.
Relief will not be imme-
diate because telemarket-
ers must only update their
list every 90 days, but once
that timeframe has passed,
the calls should stop.
Telemarketers can be fined
ooo


up to $11,000 per call if
they call names on the list.
Registering for the list
will not free you from calls
from research surveys,
charities, political parties
(stand by) or other com-
panies that have sold you
something within the last
18 months.
I also recommend if a
charity calls and you are
moved to donate to the
cause, ask for a mailing
address and send the money
directly to the charity.
Some of the telemarketers
will keep up to 90 percent
of the money you donate if
you do it directly through
the call. That is probably
not where you want your
money to go!
More questions? Call
Hey MoneyMan at 778-
0353.


Owen. "They're muskets!"
Owen came back with a battery-
operated laser gun that has a siren.
Ford threw his felt hat at the ground
and stomped his foot. "Oweeeeen!" he
yelled. "They didn't have laser guns
back then! And their guns didn't have
sirens! We're talking about, like, 100
years ago!"
I looked up from my pruning.
"Actually, it was more than 200 years
ago, Ford," I said.
Owen went back to the garage and
came out with a football helmet on his
head.
"What are you doing now?" Ford
asked.
"I'll be the helicopter pilot," Owen
said. "I'll shoot down the bad guys."
"They didn't have helicopters
either!" Ford was screaming now.
"Come on, grab a musket and let's
fight the South."
"The British," I corrected. "The
North fought the South in the Civil
War."
"Whatever."
Owen pointed his laser gun at me
and asked if I was British.
I finished my yard work while the
boys slid on their bellies through
the "swamps" of the battlefield and
chased down run-away Big Wheels...
I mean, horses. They continued to
fight, alternately, the South and the
British, and eventually, Ford gave up
and let Owen use his laser gun with
siren.
No, my boys don't need at book to
learn about being dangerous. But
that day, when the Revolutionary
War, Civil War and Gulf War were
all seemingly fought simultaneously
on our freshly mowed lawn, I realized
that perhaps what my boys do need is
a history book.

Fleet Seminar Program being offered


HS-5 conducts

NSW training

with SBT-20

at NAS Jax

By Lt. Allen Langston
HS-5 PAO


T he "Nightdippers"
of HS-5 conducted
naval special war-
fare training (NSW) with
Special Boat Team 20
(SBT-20) from NAB Little
Creek, Va. March 25-27.
The training flights pro-
vided the opportunity for
senior squadron members
to refresh their skills and
allowed junior personnel to
experience NSW operations.
Operations included person-
nel cast and recovery, special
patrol insertion extraction
(SPIE), fast roping, rappel-
ling and K-duck deployment.
The first day, SBT-20 and
HS-5 conducted cast and
recovery operations in the St.
Johns River just north of the
Buckman Bridge. Casting
consisted of bringing the
helicopter to a 10-foot/10-
knot hover while the swim-
mers jumped out the cabin
door. The recovery consisted
of two different methods: one
from a 70-foot hover using
the hoist and the other via
a special operations ladder
from 15 feet.
The next day, the opera-
tions used Outlying Field
Whitehouse for SPIE and
then proceeded to NAS
Jacksonville for fast roping
and rappelling. SPIE con-
sisted of seven people hang-
ing 120 feet below the heli-
copter. The fast rope opera-
tion was conducted from a
20-foot hover and the rap-
pelling from a 40-foot hover.
These evolutions consisted
of both day and night opera-
tions. Fast rope and rappel-
ling operations are extremely
useful for rapidly inserting
special operations forces into

hostile terrain or onto ships.
The tactics allow for troop
deployment when landing is
not possible or advisable.
The final day of training
consisted of the K-duck oper-
ations. During this training,
a 1,000-pound combat rubber
raiding craft was attached
to the bottom of the helicop-
ter and deployed along with
swimmers from a 10-foot/10-
knot hover. The operations
were conducted in the river
just east of helo spots one
and three.

day and went into night so

bers could get their required

fications. K-duck
operations are
useful for rapidly
inserting special
operations forces
into an aquatic envi-
ronment with the
required gear and
a means of further
transporting them-
selves into hostile
territory. Loading
the craft on the
bottom of the heli-
copter can be very
challenging. It can
take even the most
experienced crews
15 to 20 minutes to
load the boat and
for inexperienced
crews upwards of
helicopter pilots can


simulate the profiles required
for these operations, this type
of training does not replace
the quality of training that
occurs when there are actual
people jumping and hang-
ing out of the aircraft. The
coordination and teamwork
required to accomplish these
types of operations also pro-
vides invaluable training.

NAS Jax celebrates Earth Day FFSC offers educational


From the NAS lax Environmental
Department
The Northeast Florida
Environmental Compliance
Partnering Team took part
in the festivities at the Jacksonville
Landing celebrating the 38th anni-
versary of Earth Day. Hundreds
gathered for the festival to learn
about conservation, reducing energy,
preventing pollution, and recycling.
"We are here every year to let the
public know that the Navy is con-
cerned about environmental issues
and that we do our part for envi-
ronmental stewardship," said NAS
Jax Environmental Director Kevin
Gartland.
The volunteers at the booth handed
out stickers, bookmarks and flyers
about environmental responsibility
and educational programs the station
offers.
"It was a great opportunity to meet
educators who are looking for another
place to visit that teaches about the
environment and things kids can do
to help," remarked NAS Jax Assistant
Natural Resources Manager Angela
Glass. "There are several teachers
ready to plan their field trip to the
base now!"
Many people stopped by the booth
to grab a bag and fill it up with all
the things they need to learn about
the environment. This year's display
included fire equipment NAS Jax for-
esters use during a controlled burn.
Some of the questions asked included
why the station performs controlled
burns on their properties and how it's
done.
Jarret Towns is interested in becom-
ing a firefighter and was anxious to
try on the gear. "This is cool!" he said
when trying on the hat, jacket and
holding the drip torch. The drip torch
is a heavy-duty aluminum canister
that the foresters use to start con-
trolled burns to eliminate some of the
underbrush that fuels wildfires.
Karsen Newman, 6, loves coming to
the Earth Day celebration every year
according to his mother, Andrea. "He
is concerned about the environment
and this is a great place to learn," she
said.
The Navy has recognized NAS

Prestigious addiction treatment reps visit NavHosp Jax


By Marsha Childs
NHJ Marketing


Visitors from the prestigious Hazelden Clinic, one
of the world's largest and well respected addic-
tions treatment facilities located in Minnesota,
toured Naval Hospital Jacksonville's Substance Abuse
Rehabilitations Program (SARP) April 1-2. The hos-
pital's program is modeled after Hazelden's Living in
Balance treatment program.
Bureau of Medicine and Surgery SARP Director Charles
Gould recommended Naval Hospital Jacksonville for
their tour. He said, "Jax has always been supportive of
the Substance and Abuse Rehabilitation Program. They
are well ahead of other Navy SARPs in implementing the
Living in Balance program."
Hazelden Clinic Program Supervisor David Schreck
and Manager of the Professionals and Residence Program
Kathy Graf reviewed the hospital's overall addictions
treatment program. Schreck said, "There are a lot of simi-
larities in terms of going through the assessment process
and what questions we might ask the client before they
actually arrive for treatment."
"Many of the Navy counselors are coming to see
Hazelden to see how we do treatment and we really want-
ed to see the same thing (in military treatment facilities),
and this is the facility that was recommended," added
Graf.
Mental Health and SARP Department Head Dr. Quinn
Bastian stated, "They gave us some great feedback such
as creating specialized treatment tracks for patients with

post traumatic stress disorder or other co-occurring men-
tal health problems. Our programs are similar in that we
both focus on treating the same classes of problems. Our


programs are different in that they have in-house medi-
cal staff and a dedicated hospital ward for detoxification.
They treat adolescents whereas we only treat adults. They
typically have 200 patients at once. We typically have
about 30. They rely more on peer-directed group counsel-
ing. Our Navy substance abuse counselors actively guide
more of the group therapy."
The Navy has plans to send all SARP counselors to
Hazelden for the cost-effective 12 principle Living in
Balance training, a research-based addictions treatment
and recovery curriculum. This treatment uses a non-
threatening approach to lifestyle issues such as personal
wellness, spirituality and stress management that are
often neglected.
CSC(SW/AW) Nathaniel Watford, an addictions coun-
selor at SARP, is scheduled to attend Hazelden's Living
in Balance training in June. He looks forward to the
day when all Navy SARPs offer the same program to
treat addictions. "This type of treatment is the way of the
future. We provide our patients the tools for making life-
style changes so that when they come to a crossroads, they
have the skills to cope," he said. "If you are always going
to the bars, we make suggestions to break that habit. The
bottom line is the choice is theirs."
The SARP treatment program is open to all active duty.
The member's command drug and alcohol program advisor
may refer them for treatment. It is also available to active
duty family members, retirees and their family members,
18 years and older without a referral. For more informa-
tion about the program, please call 542-3473.

Holocaust Remembrance Day May 2


From the NAS Jax Multicultural
Awareness Committee
To truly understand the horror
of the Holocaust, it is neces-
sary to know about the events
leading to it and the severity of the
concentration camps.
The Holocaust was the systematic,
bureaucratic, state-sponsored perse-
cution and murder of approximately
six million Jews the primary victims,
but also five million others, approxi-
mately 11 million individuals wiped
off the Earth by the Nazi regime and
its collaborators.
It is hard to grasp the idea that it
isn't just 11 million deaths, but 11
million people whose lives were cut
off because of racism and hate, all in
a period of 11 years (1933-45).
"Holocaust" is a word of Greek ori-
gin meaning "sacrifice by fire." The
Nazis, who came to power in Germany
in January 1933, opened the first con-
centration camp. They believed that
the Germans were "racially superior"
and that the Jews, deemed "inferior,"
were an alien threat to the so-called
German racial community.
During the era of the Holocaust,
German authorities also targeted
other groups because of their per-
ceived "racial inferiority": Roma
(Gypsies), the disabled, and some of
the Slavic peoples (Poles, Russians,
and others). Other groups were per-
secuted on political, ideological, and
behavioral grounds, among them
Communists, Socialists, Jehovah's
Witnesses and homosexuals.
In 1933, the Jewish population of
Europe stood at over nine million.
Most European Jews lived in coun-
tries that Nazi Germany would occu-
py or influence during World War II.
Once Hitler was firmly in power,
his plans for the ending of the strug-
gle between the Aryan race and the
so called "inferior races" was set to
work. These races were feared as a
biological threat to the "master race"
purity. Hitler gained further support
for his ideas via the Nazi Propaganda
Ministry, headed by Dr. Joseph
Goebbels, which filled the popular
media with pro-Nazi material.
Anything opposing the Nazi Party
was censored and removed from the
media. All forms of communication:
newspapers, magazines, books, pub-
lic meetings, rallies, art, music, mov-
ies, and radio, was controlled by the
Nazis.
"Book burnings" of books that didn't
gel with the "Nazi ideals" were fre-
quent, some due to the their authors
being Jewish, such as Albert Einstein
and Sigmund Freud, but many of
them by non-Jews such as Ernest
Hemingway, Jack London, Sinclair
Lewis, and Helen Keller (a particu-
larly offensive person to the Nazis
since she successfully overcame her
handicaps).
By 1945, the Germans and their
collaborators killed nearly two out of
every three European Jews as part of
the "Final Solution," the Nazi policy to
murder the Jews of Europe. Although


HOLOCAUST REM RM EDAYM


dews, wnom me INazis deemed a pri-
ority danger to Germany, were the
primary victims of Nazi racism, other
victims included some 200,000 Roma
(Gypsies). At least 200,000 mentally
or physically disabled patients, main-
ly Germans, living in institutional
settings, were murdered in the so-
called Euthanasia Program.
As Nazi tyranny spread across
Europe, the Germans and their col-
laborators persecuted and murdered
millions of other people. Between two
and three million Soviet prisoners of
war were murdered or died of starva-
tion, disease, neglect, or maltreat-
ment.
The Germans targeted the non-
Jewish Polish intelligent for kill-
ing and deported millions of Polish
and Soviet civilians for forced labor
in Germany or in occupied Poland,
where these individuals worked and
often died under deplorable condi-
tions.
From the earliest years of the Nazi
regime, German authorities perse-
cuted homosexuals and others whose
behavior did not match prescribed
social norms. German police offi-
cials targeted thousands of political
opponents (including Communists,
Socialists and trade unionists) and
religious dissidents (such as Jehovah's
Witnesses). Many of these individuals
died as a result of incarceration and
maltreatment.
In the early years of the Nazi
regime, the National Socialist gov-
ernment established concentration
camps to detain real and imagined
political and ideological opponents.
Increasingly in the years before the
outbreak of war, SS and police offi-
cials incarcerated Jews, Roma, and
other victims of ethnic and racial
hatred in these camps.
To concentrate and monitor the
Jewish population as well as to facili-
tate later deportation of the Jews,
the Germans and their collaborators
created ghettos, transit camps, and
forced-labor camps for Jews during
the war years. The German authori-
ties also established numerous
forced-labor camps, both in the so-
called Greater German Reich and in
German-occupied territory, for non-
Jews whose labor the Germans sought


to exploit.
Following the invasion of the Soviet
Union in June 1941, Einsatzgruppen
(mobile killing units) and, later, mili-
tarized battalions of Order Police
officials, moved behind German lines
to carry out mass-murder operations
against Jews, Roma and Soviet state
and Communist Party officials.
German SS and police units, sup-
ported by units of the Wehrmacht and
the Waffen SS, murdered more than
a million Jewish men, women, and
children, and hundreds of thousands
of others.
Between 1941 and 1944, Nazi
German authorities deported millions
of Jews from Germany, from occupied
territories, and from the countries of
many of its axis allies to ghettos and
to killing centers, often called exter-
mination camps, where they were
murdered in specially developed gas-
sing facilities.
In the final months of the war, SS
guards moved camp inmates by train
or on forced marches, often called
"death marches," in an attempt to
prevent the allied liberation of large
numbers of prisoners.
As allied forces moved across
Europe in a series of offensives
against Germany, they began to
encounter and liberate concentration
camp prisoners, as well as prisoners
en route by forced march from one
camp to another.
The marches continued until May 7,
1945, the day the German armed forc-
es surrendered unconditionally to the
allies. For the western allies, World
War II officially ended in Europe on
the next day, May 8 (V-E Day), while
Soviet forces announced their "Victory
Day" on May 9, 1945.
In the aftermath of the Holocaust,
many of the survivors found shelter in
displaced persons (DPs) camps admin-
istered by the allied powers. Between
1948 and 1951, almost 700,000 Jews
emigrated to Israel, including 136,000
Jewish displaced persons from
Europe.
Other Jewish DPs emigrated to
the United States and other nations.
The last DP camp closed in 1957.
The crimes committed during the
Holocaust devastated most European
Jewish communities and eliminated
hundreds of Jewish communities in
occupied eastern Europe entirely.
The Holocaust spanned years
with suffering and death spread
throughout these years of terror. It
was decided after much debate the
27th of Nissan would be the day of
remembrance. If the 27th of Nissan
would affect Shabbat (fall on Fi-id.i,
or Saturday), then it would be moved.
If the 27th of Nissan falls on a F,-id.%y,
Holocaust Remembrance Day is
moved to the preceding Thursday. If
the 27th of Nissan falls on a Sunday,
then Holocaust Remembrance Day is
moved to the following Monday.
Throughout the nation remem-
brances will be held from April 27
to May 4 and the day the Holocaust
Remembrance Day will be observed by
the Department of Defense on May 2.

CPRW 11
sailors from Commander Patrol and Reconnaissance
Wing Eleven (CPRW-11) volunteered their time to
work with the Florida Striders Club April 12.
The Florida Striders Track Club is a family-oriented
club that stages three Grand Prix races each year and a
social each month. Profits from these events are funneled
back into the community to fund projects that promote fit-
ness and health. The volunteer work by CPRW-11 Sailors
is part of a command wide goal to dedicate off-duty hours
of community service in the local area.
CPRW-11 set up their station at the corner of River
Road and Kingsley Avenue in Orange Park, where
IT1(SW) Patrick Kean and SKI Hodewou Sokpoh manned
tables and handed out refreshments to the runners as
they passed through. "Everyone from the commodore
down, gets involved," said Kean, co-coordinator of CPRW-
11l's community relations program. "We have nothing but
support from our chain of command."
The positive attitudes of CPRW- 11 personnel during this
event were quite infectious. The Florida Striders Track
Club was especially appreciative. "Everyone came in so
well organized. There was nothing they were not willing
to do. They arrived and set up in the blink of an eye! I'd
like to send a special thank you to IT2 Brandon Howell,
who has helped us tremendously," said Striders Director
Keith Poythress.
"It feels great to give back! It shows that we actually
care about Jacksonville and our neighbors. It helps to let
the community know that we are there for them," said
Howell. "Our job is not just being in the Navy, it is sup-
porting the local community as well."
"We were all ecstatic about the large turnout of Wing-11
personnel who showed up to support the run."

When crisis comes home


By Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina
4MARDIV AAB B CO/Navy Operational
Support Command Jax
Afew years ago, a nation-
al newspaper ran a story
illustrating the complexi-
ties involved in trying to describe
American families in terms of
structure, income, livelihood and
ethnicity.
Here are some of the different
ways that the modern American
family was depicted:
Dual income household/no
children
Single income-married/two
children
White, young urban profes-
sional
Young, Black urban profes-
sional
Young, Hispanic urban pro-
fessional
Or how about...
Young, pregnant/unmarried/
urban professional


CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


Multiple incomes, married/ no
kids
Blended families
Please note that this listing of
descriptions is not exhaustive.
The complexity of contempo-
rary family structures can give a
demographer a migraine.
Regardless of the family's make-
up, all families have one thing in
common -crisis! Crisis is the great
equalizer of the American family.
Crisis comes home in every size to
everyone sooner or later.
When crisis comes home it
takes center stage and interrupts
the regular routines of family life.
I make two assumptions:
1. Whatever type of family we
are in, we will all face crisis some-
time or other. Therefore, prepara-
tion for crisis is essential to fam-


Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina
ily survival.
2. While faith in God is impor-


tant and will give strength to deal
with a crisis, faith will not pro-
vide immunity from experiencing
crisis.
I suggest the following primer
on how to be prepared to face cri-
sis:
1. Open your home to the coun-
sel of the wise.
There is a preparatory phase
to dealing with crisis. While the
Marine that goes to boot camp
should never desire to fire a shot
in anger, each Marine should be
prepared and trained to respond.
In preparation for the crisis of
life, let us open our homes and
our lives to people of integrity,
maturity and wisdom.
These are people that have
proven to have our best interest
at heart. They can provide invalu-


able support and counsel through-
out our lives, crises notwithstand-
ing.
The rule of thumb is: Let us be
wise in the friendships we culti-
vate and the proactive prepara-
tions to "fight the good fight."
2. Exercise your faith.
The common human habit is to
place our faith "on hold" when all
is going well. Consequently, when
a crisis erupts, religious faith is
dusted off and invoked as though
it were a "lucky charm" or talis-
man.
I propose that the power of faith
in a living God is a dynamic and
precious resource meant to enrich
us year-round.
As we appropriate and exercise
our faith, the following timeless
verity becomes a reality: "in all
these things we are more than
conquerors through Him who
loves us (Holy Bible, Epistle to
the Romans 8:37).


ThanksUSA offers scholarships to

military spouses and 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 invalu-
able service to our country and the sac-
rifice of these men and women and their
families should not come at the expense
of their educational pursuits," said
Carolyn Ferek of ThanksUSA.
"We hope, that in a small way, these
scholarships reflect the nation's appre-
ciation for their service to help defend
our freedom."
Interested applicants can find more
information, eligibility requirements 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-secondary scholarships to
more than 1,350 spouses and children of
military members serving on active-duty
status.
Scholarships have been awarded 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, demonstrated leader-
ship and participation in school and com-
munity activities.

RELAUNCH: Military Spouse Career Program has some changes


From Page 1


"This is really a fantastic pro-
gram. The people heading up this
program have been listening to
the needs and concerns of poten-
tial candidates and have respond-
ed with these changes. It's a huge
plus for everyone. Because this
is a pilot program, all rules are
up for discussion and revision to
continue to make is a great pro-
gram," continued Woods. "And,
I'm thrilled wit the turnout here
today. Hopefully we'll get a lot
more people enrolled."
To apply for the new program,
spouses must first stop at the
Navy College Office where they
will meet with a counselor who
will review their educational his-
tory, discuss their goals and cre-
ate a record for them. If they don't
have their prerequisites complet-
ed, they will be sent to one of the
educational institutions on base to
help them get started so eventual-
ly they do qualify for the program.
After visiting the Navy College
Office, candidates and potential
candidates meet with WorkSource
State Veteran's Representative
Gregory Spiro and WorkSource
Senior Career Coach Conni
Smolder, also in the Navy College
Office, who will determine if their
academic program fits into the
initiative's guidelines.
Once approved for the program,
a special account is created for
the spouses and all monies are

Advancement Initiative about edu-
cational and career opportunities.
paid directly to the school they are
attending. Another requirement is
that they are stationed here for a
year. After a year, they can trans-
fer and continue their education
with funding from the program.
Each client is closely monitored
throughout the program by Spiro
and Smolder. "When they first
come to us, we discuss the process
of the program, education direc-
tion they are headed and offer
career coaching. We watch their
progress throughout the program
and when they graduate, we go
to the phase two portion of the
program which is finding them
employment," added Spiro. "I'm
an employment specialist so I
help our clients find jobs through
our networking sources. The ulti-


mate goal of this program is to get
people working. And then, once
they start working, we continue to
monitor them for about a year to
gather data for the Department of
Labor."
The final step of the qualifica-
tion process is with the FFSC who
will verify the service member's
rate and transfer date. Once it is
approved, an account is set up and
they can begin taking classes.
And, finding a good p.iyin. iijob
is why many spouses showed up
at the relaunch event. "I'm here
today because I'm searching for
career change. I have a degree
in business management. We
just moved from Virginia where I
was a deputy sheriff. I just don't
want to do that here," explained
Kawani Jakes, whose husband
is stationed at NS Mayport and
brought a flyer home about the
event. "My son is 11 so I want to
be home when he's home espe-
cially when my husband is out to
sea."
"I'm here to get money for
school. I'm have four more class-
es left to earn my degree and it
will cost about $2,000 to finish
my education. My husband went
to the Navy College Office and
picked up a flyer and brought it
home so we could look into this
program," added Mary Sarante.
"If we qualify, it would be a lot of
money we don't have to pay and I
could finish my degree. I plan to


get my degree in accounting and
find a good job."
According to Career
Advancement Account Project
Manager Cindy Wadsworth, get-
ting spouses educated so they can
find high p.i in'-. successful jobs
is the main goal and many tools
are available through this pro-
gram to help them achieve just
that. "Our job is to make sure that
what you do in training equates to
a job that will be so portable and
so much in demand that no mat-
ter where your next duty station
is you'll have a very good chance
of walking right into that job," she
said. "We want to know if your
game plan is the right game plan
and if it's going to give you the
degree, certification or licensing
you need to be able to walk into
that job and stay in that job when
faced with another move."
"This program covers tuition,
books, licensing fees, exam costs
and tools needed for your new job.
You just need to commit your time
to do the training to become suc-
cessful in this program," she told
the group of spouses who showed
up at the event.
"Many people ask why they are
just being given money to finish
school at no cost. This is a new
program that has never been done
before. The success of this pro-
gram directly affects the military
spouses who come behind you
down the road. DoD and DoL want


this program to branch out to all
bases and to all military spous-
es. So, do well with your studies,
because we want you to succeed
and with your success comes the
success of others later. That is the
only obligation you have," she con-
tinued.
To be eligible for a career
advancement account, spouses of
military service members/spon-
sors must:
Be married to a service mem-
ber/sponsor on active duty;
Be married to a service mem-
ber/sponsor who is assigned to a
demonstration site or reside in
the state at the time of eligibil-
ity determination when the ser-
vice member/sponsor spouse is
deployed or on an unaccompanied
military tour from a demonstra-
tion site;
Be married to a service mem-
ber/sponsor with a minimum of
one year remaining at the demon-
stration installation duty assign-
ment; with the exception of duty
assignments that will require
relocation as part of the Base
Realignment and Closure Act of
2005;
Not be receiving trade adjust-
ment assistance or Workforce
Investment Act funded individual
training accounts.
For more information on
the new program, go to www.

A review of the basics
By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor _/ _- .. ..


My husband has played
golf for many years,
starting as a young man.
He is not a frequent player; rath-
er he is a 'few-times-a-year' golf-
er. Recently, I purchased golf les-
sons for his birthday. The instruc-
tor complimented my husband
on several parts of his game but
quipped, "Everyone has to review
the basics on a regular basis to
keep their game sharp."
I'm not a golfer but the wisdom
of this instructor could not be
ignored. Whatever our endeavor
reviewing the basics is important.
For military spouses the basics
include basic knowledge and
resources. Let's take a moment
to review a few military spouse
basics.
Service member basics: We need
to know certain things about our
service member. Take time to get
this info from your Sailor/. These
include:
Rank (Pay grade)
Rate (military job title)
Command/Unit (including
department and/or division)
Quarterdeck number
Unit/command mailing
address
Social Security Number
Copy of Page Two
Copy of most recent Orders
Ombudsman contact informa-
tion
Recent copy of LES (Leave and
Earning Statement)
In addition to these items your
service member should also pro-
vide you with a current power of
attorney which empowers you to
make decisions and take certain
actions on behalf of your service
member in his absence.
If your service member is deploy-
ing soon he will have deployment


WOPUSE S RESPECTIVEE


you are on vacation 1,000 miles
from your base but 15 minutes
from an Army installation (even
if it is not your branch) you can
access that local base for medical,
family support, legal support, even
to replace your ID.
Local Family Support Your
installation Fleet and Family
Service Center (FFSC) can be your
lifeline for information, counsel-
ing, seminars, referrals and other
services to support you in your
success as a Navy spouse. Contact
them for a current listing of
upcoming events and services. Get
on their email list. Not sure where
the FFSC/ACS is located check
your installation website or logon
to www.ffsp.navy.mil.
Command Family Support
- A Navy Command Family
Ombudsman is your command's
family-support resource. These
volunteers will be able to offer you
insight, information and refer-
ral for military life. But perhaps
more importantly they are the
official resource for command spe-
cific information. Be sure to get on
their email tree and mailing lists.
Keep their numbers handy.
Dependent ID Cards and
Vehicle Decals check your ID
and decals for expiration dates.
Your service member is required
to complete paperwork for renewal
of your ID.
Take time to assemble this infor-
mation and update it as necessary
on at least an annual basis. These
are the basics that will keep 'our
game' sharp.

Worldwide case lot sale

A commissary customer favorite on tap for May


If last year's numbers are any indication, the world-
wide case lot sale in May will yield fantastic sav-
ings for commissary customers. In
May 2007, commissaries around
the globe posted numbers that .-
totaled more than $12.5 million in "
sales and 1.8 million cases of prod-
uct sold, proof of increasingly savvy
shopping by commissary customers.
Though overall savings are holding
steady at 30 percent or more, case
lot sales can increase those savings
even more which explains their .
popularity.
"We are optimistic about the num-
bers this year," said the Defense
Commissary Agency (DeCA) Acting -
Director Rick Page. "Commissary
shoppers love these sales, so we expect
great customer support."
DeCA holds worldwide case lot sales twice a year in
May and September. The September sale started in 2001
and proved so popular another was added in May.
The biannual event offers shoppers an opportunity to
buy bulk quantities of their favorite products at increased
savings, such as canned goods, beverages, paper products,
pet supplies, cleaning or laundry products, and in some


U
U


cases, fresh chicken, pork, beef and produce.
Nearly all commissaries participate on different week-
ends throughout the month. To find out when your com-
missary is hosting a sale, check out the special case lot
sale Web page at http://www.commissaries.com/case lot
sale.cfm.
S. me sales will take place the last weekend in
May, spilling over to June 1. Customers
who live in regions with multiple com-
missaries, such as Norfolk, Va., or San
S Antonio, can make maximum use of
Sthe DeCA Web site to hit more than
, one sale.
And while you're on the Web site,
,' be sure to check out all the features it
has to offer: Ask the DeCA Dietitian;
'.-- Kay's Kitchen; links to special man-
ufacturer's coupons, sweepstakes and
promotions; and the latest commissary
news. If you're interested in having the
news delivered to you by e-mail, it's as
simple as registering for a free subscrip-
tion to Commissary Connection.
So if you're a savvy shopper who likes to
stock the pantry and save lots of money, too, do
your homework and prepare for the worldwide case lot
sale.
When you're making out your shopping list, you might
find "shop till you drop" is item No. 1.

Commissaries partner with Military


OneSource to promote better health habits


By Cherie Huntington
Defense Commissary Agency


As part of the Defense Commissary Agency's ser-
vice as nutritional leader for the Department
of Defense, commissaries are now boosting
awareness of a great "healthy habits" partner, Military
OneSource.
A free service to military members and their families,
Military OneSource offers help 24 hours a day, seven
days a week on the Web at http://www.militaryonesource.
com or via toll-free phone at (800) 342-9647 in the United
States. Numbers to use from different overseas locations
are provided on the Web site.
"Customers are now seeing colorful 'Healthy Habits
Coaching' banners in their local commissaries," said Rick
Page, DeCA's acting director. "The banners advertise
the Web site and phone number of OneSource. We hope
to remind everyone of this amazing resource offering so
much assistance in getting and staying healthy."
Provided by the Department of Defense, OneSource
represents "one-stop shopping" for a wealth of help and
information on everything from preparing tax forms to

Be good to your heart with whole

grains from your commissary
By Maj. Karen Fauber
DeCA dietitian
Want to lose weight, help your heart or just feel
better? Then choose whole grains when shop-
ping in the commissary. Eating as little as two
and a half servings of whole grains daily has been found
to reduce the risk of heart disease according to research.
A serving is about one slice of bread or a half-cup of a
whole grain such as brown rice, oatmeal, wild rice, qui-
noa, barley or buckwheat. So be good to your heart and
your waistline and go for the whole grains.
Choose whole grains while shopping and save 30 percent
or more at the commissary.
Look for the words "whole grain" in large letters on
the package. On foods that have 51 percent or more of
whole grain ingredients by weight and limited amounts
of fat, cholesterol and sodium, there may also be the FDA-
approved health claim, "Diets rich in whole grain foods
and other plant foods, and low in total fat, saturated fat
and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease and
certain cancers."
Whole grain oat or psyllium foods may contain the
claim: "Soluble fiber, as part of a diet low in saturated fat
and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."
On the list of ingredients shown on the package, look
for the word "whole" in front of a grain to find a food that
is high in whole grains, such as "whole wheat."
Get your grains
Eating brown rice for the first time and a little unsure
of it? When cooking it, go half and half with white rice to
break it in easily. Try cooking brown rice with low sodium
broth and garlic in place of half the water for a special fla-
vor. Add some wild rice to your brown rice for more whole
grains with a nutty flavor.
Add bulgur, also known as cracked wheat or barley, to
soups and salads. It's a good way to boost the fiber and
protein in your diet.
Try quinoa in place of rice at your next dinner. Quick
and easy to prepare, cook with low sodium broth and gar-
lic or any herb you like. For something different, add some
raisins, dried cranberries or nuts to the quinoa to get a
little more fiber.

Providing now and in the future


Enjoy green tea time


By Lt. Craig Morris, JAGC
Regional Legal Service Office Southeast

Investing for the future can be
a daunting task. This article is
designed to provide some insight
into what investment vehicles are
available. The first thing you need to
do is determine what your needs will
be in the future, and then seek out a
qualified financial planner that you
trust to help you achieve those goals.
If you are not investment savvy
enough to go it alone, here are some
of the common ways to invest and
provide for yourself and your family.
Provide for loved ones
when you no longer can
The easiest thing that you can do is
draw up a will. Having your wishes
outlined in a will prevents the incon-
venience and expense of settling your
affairs when there is no will. A will
ensures that your intentions will be
followed and may help to prevent bad
blood between competing relatives.
Another vehicle for providing for
your family is insurance. There are
many forms of insurance; here are
some things that you should keep in
mind. First, as an active or reserve
service member, you are eligible for
Servicemembers Group Life Insurance
(SGLI). You can also elect to cover
your spouse and dependents. SGLI
is extremely affordable and, unlike
some private commercial policies, will
cover death resulting from an armed
conflict.
Your local Regional Legal Service
Office Southeast office can assist you
in filling out your beneficiary desig-
nation form. If you determine that
you need additional insurance, pri-
vate commercial insurance can be
purchased to supplement your SGLI,


but be careful to do your research
and comparison shop between insur-
ers. There are many companies offer-
ing "financial" products to the mili-
tary community, but several of these
companies have been cited by federal
and state regulators for deceptive and
misleading practices.
Provide for retirement
Many different vehicles are avail-
able for retirement planning. All of
these options have their own advan-
tages and disadvantages. You must
research to find the best options for
you. A recent vehicle that is now
available to service members is the
Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). TSP is
designed to work much the same as
401K plans that are provided by pri-
vate employers. TSP is in no way
tied to military retirement, and is a
separate account from the standard
retirement.
The plan allows service members to
begin contributing immediately with
pre-tax dollars, and the account is
portable if the service member leaves
the military. TSP limits when you can
take distributions without penalty
(usually not until age 5912, or in cer-
tain hardship cases), and where the
money is invested (there is a limited
list of funds in which you can distrib-
ute the money).
TSP and 401K plans are great ways
to start investing for retirement using
money that will be tax-deferred until
you retire and that will come out of
your pay before you have a chance to
spend it. In addition, since the con-
tribution comes out pre-tax, it reduces
your income and your tax liability
Individual retirement accounts
(IRAs) and ROTH IRAs are another
way to invest for the future. Again,


IRAs have pros and cons about which
you need to research or ask a qualified
financial planner. IRAs also allow for
the investment of pre-tax dollars, and
grow tax-deferred, with restrictions on
when the money can be withdrawn,
but do not have restrictions on where
the money can be invested. IRAs do
have administrative fees associated
with them.
It is best to shop around to different
brokerage houses for the best rate on
fees. ROTH IRAs differ from tradi-
tional IRAs in that the money invest-
ed initially is with post-tax dollars.
Finally, remember there are limits
set by the federal government on how
much of your pre-tax earnings can be
invested.
If you are using several different
vehicles to invest for retirement, be
wary of not only the limits on each
investment, but also the cumulative
effect on your tax liability of all of
your contributions across all of your
investments. Remember, whatever
manner of preparation for retirement
that you choose, any planning is bet-
ter than no planning at all.
Provide for special needs
This is not an all-inclusive list of the
financial planning options available,
and research needs to be done by each
individual investor on what is best.
Other alternatives include 529 plans
for education and health savings
accounts. These plans are designed
to create benefits to those with large
education and health care expenses
by deferring or alleviating tax conse-
quences. These accounts limit when
you can withdraw the money.

ning. Call 542-2565, Ext. 3006 at NAS

Etiquette for the millennium good manners count
By KimBerly Blakeley
Special Contributor your fingers to break it into


Etiquette is a code of
behavior, based on
kindness and con-
sideration. Manner's have
been proven to be the most
attractive, most practical,
or least objectionable way
of doing things. Manner's
have definite advantages;
you can establish a pleas-
ant relationship, give your-
self confidence and make
yourself more attractive.
Always remember to fol-
low the hosts lead in any
social situation.
When you're waiting
for dinner to begin and
between courses, hands
should stay in your lap. You
may rest your wrists on the
table between courses, but
not your elbows.
Whether you're invited
to a public establishment
or to someone's home for
a formal meal, there are
guidelines to follow. Before
you arrive at the table,
you should not have gum
in your mouth and hands
should be cleaned.
When attending a ball,
you will wait for the person
in charge to give the ok to
begin eating. When invited
to an in-home dinner, your
indication to begin eating
is when your host picks up
his/her utensil and begins
to eat.
Ladies should place their
purse on their lap and not
on the table regardless how
pretty it is. If the chair next
to you happens to be empty,
you may place it there.
You can expect to use

fine linen at a formal din-
ner therefore, ladies should
not wear heavy lipstick as
the oil from lipstick stains
and many times doesn't
come out when linen is dry
cleaned.
As soon as everyone is
seated, your napkin is
placed on your lap. Blot
your lips with a napkin, do
not wipe. If you have to get
up during the course, place
your napkin folded on your
seat and push your chair
in. There are other options
for napkin placement, but
I personally feel this works
best.
A service plate serves as
an under plate for the plate
holding the first course,
which will be brought to
you. When you have more
than one fork placed to the
left of your setting, you
always start from the out-
side and work your way in.
The larger fork or dinner
fork is for the main course.
The dinner knife is to the
right of the plate, cutting
edge facing inward. Spoons
are to the right of plate and


right of the knife; farthest
spoon (soup spoon) is used
first.
All glasses are placed to
the top right of the dinner
plate. The salad plate is to
the left of forks or it may
be placed on top of dinner
plate. A bread plate goes
above the forks, with but-
ter knife resting on edge. A
dessert spoon or fork can be
placed horizontally above
the dinner plate, spoon on
top with handle to right and
fork below it with handle to
left.
If there is a fish course,
a small fork is placed far-
thest to the left since this
would be the first course.
If shellfish is being served,
the oyster fork will be to
the right of spoons and will
be the only fork ever placed
on the right.
Cut your food into bite
sized pieces at a time.
Never cut the entire meal
up then consume it. Always
taste your food before sea-
soning (especially at an in-
home dinner.)
When eating bread, use


pieces as you go along and
butter one piece at a time.

Want a boost for your health? Try a cup of
hot or cold green tea brimming with anti-
oxidants instead of the usual soda or coffee.
Available in bags, loose leaves, bottles, and cans,
green tea contains the antioxidants known as cat-
echins which are beneficial for good health. Drinking
green tea may help reduce the risk for coronary heart
disease, as well as stomach, throat and skin cancers.
An extensive Japanese research study recently
published in the Journal of the American Medical
Association found that people who drank five or more
cups of green tea daily had a lower risk of death from
disease than those averaging less than one cup a day.
Don't lose heart over the amount consumed dur-
ing the study. You don't have to drink a gallon of tea
each day because the size of a cup of tea in Japan is
3.3 ounces compared to the 6- to 8-ounce cup in the
United States.
And, researchers did observe benefits from drink-
ing as little as one to two cups of green tea a day. In
addition to green tea's health improvements, you also
can save 30 percent or more if you purchase it at your
commissary.
Trying to lose weight
Growing evidence shows that drinking unsweet-
ened, fresh-brewed green tea, on ice or hot, may be the
ultimate weight-loss drink. Research has shown that
drinking tea several times a week has contributed to
20 percent less body fat than those who drank none.
So if you are trying to lose a few pounds, or want to
maintain your weight, drinking green tea may help
you do just that. Try adding a few lemon, orange, or
lime slices along with some mint leaves to spice it up
a little. Anyway you drink it you can enjoy the health
benefits of green tea.

Families prepare to help children cope during military deployments


By Ms. Patricia Opong-Brown
TRICARE Management Activity

In today's military, deploy-
ments are part of life. Pending
a deployment in the states or
overseas, the family, especially
the children, may have anxi-
ety and concerns. Not to worry,
there are many ways to help chil-
dren cope with the absence of a
deployed parent.
According to the Uniformed
Services University of the Health
Sciences in Bethesda, Md., there
are three important central
approaches to help children cope
during deployment. Reinforce that
the deployed parent is trained to
do his or her job, reinforce that the
family and children at home also
have jobs, and ensure that commu-
nication with the children is age
appropriate.
Just like doctors have special
training to take care of people who
are not feeling well or firefight-
ers have special training to fight
fires, the active duty parent has to
assure children that he or she has
the training and skills to do the
work while deployed.
Military medical experts sug-
gest reminding children that while
their parent is deployed, they have
roles in the household that are
just as important. The jobs can
be helping mom or dad around the
house, being successful in school,
taking on new chores or maintain-
ing a healthy lifestyle.
"On the other hand, it is not
healthy to tell a son that he is
going to be 'the man of the house,'"
said Jennifer Wickizer, commu-
nity readiness consultant, Airmen


and Family Readiness Center
(A&FRC), Bolling Air Force Base.
This puts too much pressure and
stress on the child.
"Parents need to discuss the
pending deployment with children
in ways that are age-appropriate,"
said Wickizer. She also stresses
that parents should take their
cues from the child to determine
how much information should
be presented. Provide just the
right amount of information and
answer questions accordingly, but
do not get into information over-
load mode. "Encourage children
to express their feelings: sad, mad
or happy, and validate their emo-
tions," she said.
Since preschoolers have no con-
cept of time, experts recommend
parents use visuals to illustrate
when mom or dad will be coming
home. For instance, says Wickizer,
"a candy jar with jelly beans is a
good visual. Count the number of
jelly beans for each day the par-
ent is expected to be away, and
each day the child can take a jelly
bean out of the jar. As the deploy-
ment moves on, the jar has less
jelly beans in it."
The consultant cautions parents
against marking the return date
on the calendar because deploy-
ments are very unpredictable. For
example, said Wickizer, "the par-


ent can be held over or extended.
When the parent does not come
home on the day with the big red
circle, this creates a huge disap-
pointment for the child. On the
other hand, unlike the big red cir-
cle on the calendar, a candy jar
can easily be manipulated. If the
parent at home gets news that the
deployment is extended, he or she
can slip more candy into the jar, or
remove candy if the deployed par-
ent will be coming home sooner."
"Planning an event in the
future, such as a family vacation,
not only gives the
child something positive to focus
on, but also reassures the child
that the parent will come home.
Just do not make any plans too
close to the anticipated return date
in case the deployed member is not
able to come home at that exact
time," recommended Wickizer.
Before he deploys at the end
of the year, Senior Master Sgt.
LesRoy Williams, assigned to the
Logistics Readiness Squadron at
Seymour Johnson Air Force Base,
N.C., and his family will watch
Sesame Street's Talk, Listen,
Connect: Helping Families During
Military Deployment with their 4-
year-old daughter.
All military families with chil-
dren 3- to 5-years-old can get
streaming video or request a free
bilingual kit at www.sesamework-
shop.org/tlc. The kit educates
parents and caregivers on how to
help children cope with all areas of
pre-deployment, deployment, and
homecoming.
Russell Research, Inc., in con-
sultation with the Military Family


Research Institute, surveyed 367
spouses of active duty, National
Guard, and Reserve person-
nel. More than 80 percent of
those surveyed rated the Sesame
Street DVD and kit highly effec-
tive and easy to understand for
both children and adults. Families
also reported that the program
increased communication about
deployment and reduced negative
behaviors.
"Unlike preschoolers, elementa-
ry school-age children have a bet-
ter concept of time, but candy jars
work for this age group as well,"
said Wickizer. At this age, the
deploying parent and the child
can come up with ways to stay
in touch or think of each other.
For instance, the child and par-
ent can wear synchronized stop
watches and set the alarm to go off
at a determined time. Each time
the alarm goes off, it will mean,
"I'm thinking of you," suggested
Wickizer.
Abstract thinking begins
at ages 9 through 12. This age
group understands the concept of
a return date. Military experts
recommend providing children in
this age range with stationary and
stamps to write letters or set up e-
mail accounts for keeping in touch
and communicating with their
deployed parent. The A&FRC pro-
vides writing kits for children of
various age groups.
In addition to writing letters,
children can also write in journals.
Health Net Federal Services, the
TRICARE managed care support
contractor for the northern region,
has produced a journal aimed at


Military children. Life, a Kids'
Journal, helps Military children
successfully deal with challenges,
especially deployments.
The journal helps children make
sense of their feelings while mom
or dad is deployed. Download
the journal from the link found
at www.hnfs.net/common/newsRe-
sources/Kids+Journal+News+Re
lease.htm. The Military Health
System Web site has a "Kid's
Corner," where children will be
able to share their writing, art-
work or drawings at http://mhs.
osd. mil/kidscorner.j sp.
According to Wickizer, high
school kids are a little harder to
please and e-mail is the best rec-
ommendation for teenagers. By
working with the child's school,
the deploying parent can arrange
to make morale calls to the child
at school. Deployment journals are
another tool for middle school and
high school kids.
When it gets closer to his deploy-
ment date, Williams will talk about
where he is going with his 16-year-
old daughter and 12-year-old son.
If the location is not classified, he
will have them research the coun-
try online. Wickizer recommends
www.deploymentkids.com. "This
Web site provides information
about various deployment loca-
tions, but it is set at kids' level so
that just the right amount of infor-
mation is provided."

ment, go to your Fleet and Family

More civilian providers accepting TRICARE Standard; officials continue work to expand network


From the TRICARE
Management Activity


There's good news
for TRICARE
Standard beneficia-
ries-more civilian pro-
viders are accepting new
patients, according to a
recently released survey.
Yet, TRICARE officials
acknowledge that increas-
ing the number of provid-
ers and types of providers
across the Nation remains
a high priority, especially
in remote areas.
The findings, part
of the Department of
Defense Survey of Civilian
Physician Acceptance of
TRICARE Standard, show
that in Fiscal Year (FY)
2007, almost 93 percent of
responding physicians in
53 hospital service areas
(HSAs) were aware of the
TRICARE program, with
84 percent of physicians in
those 53 HSAs accepting
new TRICARE Standard
patients.
"The survey results are
very encouraging," said
Army Maj. Gen. Elder
Granger, deputy director,
TRICARE Management
Activity (TMA). "It shows
that more doctors are work-
ing with us to ensure that
our Reserve component
warriors, retirees and their
families have access to qual-
ity care."
The 2007 survey was
the final installment of a
three-year national effort
to measure awareness of
TRICARE and to determine
the number of physicians
that accept new TRICARE
Standard patients. The
Department randomly
surveyed physicians in 20
states in both FYs 2005
and 2006. The 10 remain-
ing states and Washington,
DC, were surveyed in FY
2007. Physicians in local
HSAs were also surveyed
each year. Approximately
40,000 physicians from a
variety of medical special-
ties were randomly picked.
The aggregate results
show that civilian provider
awareness and acceptance
is generally high, but may
vary depending on loca-
tion. In addition, the sur-
vey revealed a need for
increasing both TRICARE
awareness and acceptance
among psychiatrists-a spe-
cialty critical in meeting the
behavioral health needs of
veterans of the Global War
ooo


on Terror.
Specifically, the three-
year findings across all
states and HSAs show:
Approximately 87 per-
cent of all physicians sur-
veyed are aware of the
TRICARE program.
About 81 percent of
physicians that accept
new patients also accept
new TRICARE Standard
patients.
Of those accepting
new TRICARE Standard
patients, almost 91 percent
do so for all patients, rath-
er than on a case-by-case
basis.
Reimbursement rates
were among the most com-
monly cited reasons for
not accepting TRICARE
Standard.
"The survey exceeded our
expectations," said Rich
Bannick, Ph.D., director,
Performance Evaluations,
TMA. "In the three sur-
veys completed since 2005,
more than 50 percent of
the physicians we sur-
veyed responded. That's
a very respectable survey
response rate in the health
care industry. The survey
results provide us a reli-
able measurement as to our
effectiveness in expanding
access to TRICARE pro-
viders and the challenges
of getting more doctors on
board. Congress has given
additional guidance to con-
tinue the survey process
through 2011," he said.
While active duty service
members receive the bulk of
their medical care at one of
the more than 500 military
treatment facilities, family
members, National Guard
and Reserve members, and
retirees often rely on civil-
ian physicians for their
health care needs.
"In some locations, access
to TRICARE Standard pro-
viders remains a major
concern for family mem-
bers and retirees," Granger
said. "Some doctors limit
the number of TRICARE
patients they see or refuse
to see them altogether. This
leads to fewer choices for
beneficiaries."
States showing a need
to increase acceptance and
awareness of TRICARE
include Alaska, Maryland,
Colorado, Hawaii,
Oklahoma, New York, New
Jersey, and Texas. Hospital
service areas with lower
than average TRICARE


acceptance include
Washington, DC; Raleigh,
North Carolina; Seattle
and Olympia, Washington;
Lihue/Kealakekua/Wailuku,
Hawaii; Dallas; and Falls
Church, Virginia.
TRICARE leaders, with
support from their managed
care support contractors,
are working to overcome
these challenges. "We are
reaching out to state offi-
cials, medical associations,
and individual physicians to
educate them and appeal to
their sense of patriotism in
accepting TRICARE," said
Granger.
The outreach is show-
ing promising results. For
example, the Oregon leg-
islature approved incen-
tives including a one-time

tax credit for new providers
in the TRICARE network,
plus an additional annual
credit for treating patients
enrolled in TRICARE.
Since 2004, Oregon's
TRICARE provider network
has increased by 35 percent.
In addition, the gover-
nors of 20 Western States
have supported TRICARE's
efforts to encourage more


health care providers to
accept new TRICARE
patients. Their combined
efforts led to an overall
increase in western region
TRICARE network doc-
tors from approximately
80,000 in 2004 to more than
125,000 today.
"Expanding our network
of TRICARE providers is
critical to our ability to care


for our beneficiaries," said
Granger.
"Today, more than
220,000 men and women
are TRICARE providers. We
are grateful to them for see-
ing the value in supporting
those who serve our Nation,
and we are actively seek-
ing other physicians who
want to become part of our
TRICARE provider team."

How to get toddlers to eat nutritious foods


By Maj. Karen E. Fauber
DeCA dietitian
Up, down, in, out, and running
around, toddlers like to explore
and master their world including
the food they choose to eat. While not
always sitting still for very long, they
normally eat enough calories to grow and
thrive. Our role as parents and caretak-
ers is to ensure they are offered a vari-
ety of foods that provide the calories and
nutrients their growing, busy bodies need
during their early years. Toddlers need to
decide what and how much they eat of the
foods offered to them.
Food jags are common
Does your toddler want to eat only maca-
roni and cheese or dry cereal at dinner?
It is common for toddlers to go through
food jags where they want to eat the same
food over and over again. Don't be too con-
cerned if they only want to eat macaroni
and cheese, you choose the foods on your
child's plate. If you choose to give them the
same food regularly, try adding a different
food to their plate at meals and encourage
them to try it. Most food jags do not last
very long, especially if parents don't accom-
modate them.
Tame the new food fears
Tried offering broccoli and your tod-
dler did not eat it the first time? Well,
don't give up after the first try. It natu-
rally takes children up to 10 times trying
a new food before they accept it. Continue
to give the broccoli or any other new food
at meals and snacks without forcing them
to eat it. Remember to offer small por-
tions and encourage them to try it. And be
sure you're setting a good example! Serve
healthy foods that you like so your child
will see you enjoying what you're asking


him or her to
eat.
Serve child-
size portions
A couple of
tablespoons
are usually
plenty to serve,
especially for
new foods.
Small plates
and small por-
tions are just
right for small
eyes and stom-
achs, less over-
whelming.
Let your child
decide what
to eat. Don't
force them to
eat something
if they don't
want it. It's OK
to have them
try a bite, but
let them decide
how much they
will eat after
the first bite.
Eat meals ~ ,
together
Children
need to eat with other people, especially
their families. Toddlers are more likely to
try new foods when they see their brothers,
sisters or parents eating with them. Look
for opportunities to offer healthy foods to
your toddler at home and outside activi-
ties. Fruits and vegetables can be offered
to a group of children as a new adventure
for them to try.


Toddlers
need to feed
themselves
Tried let-
ting your child
feed himself
and spent an
hour cleaning
up? Toddlers
need to feed
themselves
and practice
makes perfect.
While they
/ are practicing
and learning
how to master
this skill, they
are develop-
ing critical eye
and hand coor-
dination along
with self con-
fidence. Your
child should
start finger
feeding around
9 months and
try using uten-
sils by 15 to
18 months.
Provide the
opportunities
for your child and help out only when nec-
essary. When you are feeding your toddler
try not to force in that last bite, allowing
his hunger cues to guide how much he
eats. Don't get into a power struggle with
your child, let him have control over how
much he eats and how he eats it.
Toddlers need to eat often
Small stomachs and short attention


spans lead to toddlers needing to eat five
to six times a day. Children need and like
structure in their lives, so scheduled meals
and snacks are ideal for them. Snacks can
help the child get many of the nutrients
and calories that are needed for growing
bodies.
Snack ideas for toddlers
Cheese sticks and pretzels
Whole grain cereals (circles and square
shapes mixed together in a cup)
Apple wedges and cheese slices
Frozen banana slices
Cut carrot coins and ranch dressing
Sliced, rolled up tortilla spread with
nut butter mixed with mashed banana
Yogurt
Cottage cheese and fruit
Crackers and cheese, turkey, or ham
Avoid the junk food
Chips, cookies, candy and sodas all con-
tain a lot of empty calories without any
real nutritional value. As toddlers grow
and eat small amounts of food frequent-
ly, remember to include healthy foods in
their meals and snacks. Also, eating junk
food regularly can contribute to a toddler
becoming overweight at some time in life.
Establishing healthy habits at a young age
will greatly benefit your child as he or she
grows.
Enjoy the eating experience with your
toddler as he tries new foods, develops
skills and masters his world. It can be a
fun, rewarding experience for both of you,
For more information on feeding your
child or other nutrition topics, go to http://
www.commissaries.com and visit the DeCA
Dietitian, post your questions on the DeCA
Dietitian Forum and be sure to look for
other useful information in The Dietitian's
Voice archive.


Tutoring for your child: An A-to-Z guide
From LIFELines


Chances are that at some point dur-
ing your child's education, your
son or daughter might need a little
extra help with schoolwork. Maybe its her
algebra test, or maybe his reading skills
are not quite up to speed. Whatever the
subject may be, help awaits you.
On-base help
If you are looking for resources on-base,
Marine Corps Community Services or the
Fleet and Family Support Division are
informative and reliable places to start.
They strictly cater to military quality of life
issues and have an abundance of resources
for military youth.
Operation Hero, developed by the Armed
Services YMCA, assists students having
academic difficulty due to frequent moves
and deployments. Enrollment in the 16-
week program is free, and small-group
tutoring is available in all subject areas by
certified teachers.
For children of Navy personnel, CNET
Community Service & Outreach has cre-
ated numerous programs to enhance self-
esteem and promote academic success.
Off-base programs
There are also many low-cost resources
available off the base without having to
resort to expensive commercial business-
es. If one-on-one assistance is what you
are seeking, try the quick tutor locator at
Tutor Help.
This online resource where you set the
price range and choose the subject area


will guide you to an appropriate tutor in
the your area and will display background
references on all tutors.
In virtually every major city there exists
a branch of the Boys & Girls Club of
America. Hosting such programs as Power
Hour and Project Learn, their goal is to
raise homework proficiency in students
ages 6 to 12. You can locate your nearest
club directly on their web site and only
pay a low yearly fee for enrollment in the
programs.
Other helpful community resources
Consider locating a high-school teen or col-
lege student in your neighborhood. Often
times, these students are looking for a
part-time, after school job where they can
also gain a valuable reference from you. In
addition, you can call your local college or
university and ask to post an ad on their
employment bulletin board free of charge.
Look for resources within your own city.
Some local libraries present literacy and
tutoring programs during the week at little
or no cost.
You can also place a call to your city's
community recreational department. They
often incorporate sporting activities along
with designated homework help time.
As you begin your search for a tutor,
don't forget to be safe. Ask for past refer-
ences or a background check, if available.
Also find out what past experience or
classes the tutor has taken in the subject
area in order for your child to get the most
out of their tutoring time.


The NAS Jax Fleet and Family
Support Center (FFSC) is offering
Maximize Parenting with Love and
Logic classes every Monday beginning
June 2, July 21, Sept. 8
and Oct. 20 at 1:30 p.m.
The classes will run five
weeks at the same time
each week. Parents can
begin on any Monday, but
they should complete all
five classes sequentially.
The goal of this program
is to provide an over-
view of young children
to include developmental
stages emotionally, physi-
cally and behaviorally
with suggested interven-
tions that will empower
parents to positively par-
ent while maintaining
control through knowl-
edge. In other words,
"how to maintain your
sanity while rearing a happy well adjusted
child."
As anyone who has been a parent can
tell you, it is not an easy job. What works
for one child may not work for another. It
is a lot of trial and error. When you buy a
new appliance, car, etc., a book of instruc-
tions always accompanies the purchase.
Although we don't purchase our children,
ooo


there is no book of instructions that accom-
panies the gift. It is left up to the parent
to seek out those instructions, guidelines
and/or suggestions.
The best way to pursue them is to attend
a parenting class that
provides an overview and
offers suggestions and
guidance for the care of
this precious gift. The
earlier the intervention,
the easier the job.
The years from birth
to age five are the most
critical and important in a
child's development. It is
these early years that lay
the foundation for the bal-
ance of the child's future.
This is the time of a
child's life when their
knowledge base is expand-
ed the quickest and their
development changes at
an astronomical pace.
What is learned now is
carried for a lifetime. The trick for you as
parents is how to teach in a way that maxi-
mizes and enhances the potential without
limiting that healthy sense of self.
Early childhood development parent-
ing classes offer parents the guidelines for
healthy development of a child.
To enroll, call the FFSC at 542-2766,
Ext. 127 to sign up.

GMH MILITARY HOUSING


Is proud to have been awarded the PPV contract to manage


NAS Jacksonville housing which began October 1, 2007.





We are excited about the many changes that are taking place within housing at


NAS Jacksonville and Yellow Water communities. Yellow Water is located offbase


in a quiet neighborhood. Yellow Water consists of spacious three and four bedroom


townhomes with garages. The Community includes parks with playgrounds,


a Youth Activity Center, a NEX, and a GMH Housing Office on site.





GMH Military Housing at NAS Jacksonville is now renting* Yellow



Water homes to:



Retired military, DOD, Federal employees, and Coast Guard families



Federal Government employees working in the commute area



Federal Government civilians assigned to D.O.D activities



Unaccompanied families of active duty military members



Active duty National Guardsmen



Active duty families



Geo Bachelors



Reservists








1 New renters at Yellow Water will receive MILITARY HOUSING
.s-, $500 in gas cards or 1/2 month's rent free! www.nasjacksonvillehomes.com


20 out of a 100




The military community makes up 20 percent of the total


population for Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia.

That means that 20 out of every 100 people you meet are

somehow connected with the military.



Get your message to them by advertising in one or all of

the publications distributed at the local bases in the area.

A Military Spouse Career

. relaunch event was held
April 16 to announce new chang-

benefit military spouses.
The program was created by the
U.S. Departments of Defense and

continue to advance in a career
field which can sometimes be
challenging due to the frequent
moves required of military fami-
lies.
The program offers fund-

for expenses related to postsec-
ondary education and training
including: tuition, books, equip-
ment, credentialing and licensing
fees in several different career
fields. Candidates can receive up
to $3,000 for one year which is

N4ECE and NDSL enjoy day in the sun

Navy Medicine Support Command Public Affairs


Navy Medicine Support Command (NMSC).,
Navy Entomology Center of Excellence (NECE)
and Navy Drug Screening Laboratory (NDSL)
Jacksonville personnel gathered for their annual tri-com-
mand picnic here April 11.
This year's picnic featured slow-grilled cooking, the
opportunity for inter-command socializing, and some
friendly competition for the coveted annual physical chal-
lenge trophy.
Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) committees
from the three commands coordinated their efforts to
organize the event. They set up tents, tables and chairs,
arranged for a disc-jockey, and coordinated a competitive
sporting tournament. The three commands competed in
horse shoes, a basketball free-throw shoot-out, a volleyball
tournament, and a sack race.
Leabone 'Lee' Williams with NDSL, started things off by
slow cooking meat for the picnic early in the morning.
"Today we had Lee's special barbeque ribs, some bar-
beque chicken, steaks, hot dogs and fried fish," explained

Williams, a Navy veteran. "I cooked in the Navy for 23
years, so this is first nature to me."
Homemade potato salad, pasta salad and chocolate-chip
cookies were among the many dishes brought to the pot-
luck-style picnic.
As the feasting slowed, the tournament began with the
first competition the horseshoe event. Lt. j. g. Bryan
Heintschel won the competition for Team NECE.
After horseshoes, the basketball free-throw shoot-out compe-
tition began. The first two rounds eliminated all but two con-
testants. Team NMSC's Lt. Rodney Robinson faced off against
Team NDSL's Larue Perkins in the third round for the best of
five attempts. Perkins won, sinking all five attempts.
Next was the volleyball event. NMSC came back from an
11-5 deficit to beat Team NECE and move on to the final
round against Team NDSL. Though Team NMSC had just
finished their previous game, they showed perseverance to
beat Team NDSL and win their first competition for the day.!
The final event was the six-man relay sack race. Team
NMSC took an early lead and held onto it to win their sec-
ond competition in the tournament, and the trophy.

ON THE HOMEFRONT


The perils of fighting the Revolutionary


War in 2008 in the front yard


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor
There is a book titled "The
Dangerous Book for Boys"
(Harper Collins), by brothers,
Conn and Hal Iggulden, that teaches
boys how to, basically, have a child-
hood. This used to come naturally
to them. (Maybe they are evolving?)
In the book, there are lessons on
fishing, building forts and go-karts
and identifying spiders and insects.
The great success of "The Dangerous
Book for Boys" suggests that many
young boys don't already know how
to turn sticks into pretend guns or
chase little girls with lizards and
grasshoppers.
I have three boys. Not one of them
needs this book.
Just the other day, I was clipping
dead blooms off the rose bush when
Ford came around the corner with
a wooden musket hanging from his
shoulder by a leather strap. He was
wearing the triangle-shaped felt
hat (the one he calls the "George
Washington hat") that we bought in
Williamsburg, Va. that cost us more
than our lunch. But he was wearing
the hat backwards, so it looked more
like a felt sailor's cover than it did
something from the Revolutionary
War.
"You're gonna have to move, mom,"
Ford said. "The British are coming
and we've got a war to fight."
Just then, our neighbor's boy peeked
around the bushes looking suspicious-
ly British.
"Right here in the front yard?" I
asked. "Can't you have a war in the
backyard?"
Apparently they could not. You see,
the Potomac River, that thin strip
of white concrete that connects our

HEY MONEYMANI


Hey MoneyMan!
Without fail, every eve-
ning when my family sits
down for dinner we get a
call from someone trying to
sell us something or asking
us for a donation.
We don't have the extra
features on our phone, such
as caller ID, so we don't
know who is calling until
we answer the phone. How
can we make these calls
stop and, for once, have an
uninterrupted meal?
MonevMan Sez:
It is not hard. Call the
Federal Communications
Commission at 888-382-
1222 or visit the Web site at
www.donotcall.gov and ask
to be put on the National
Do Not Call Registry.
Relief will not be imme-
diate because telemarket-
ers must only update their
list every 90 days, but once
that timeframe has passed,

front yard, once the burial place for
the body parts of several plastic fla-
mingoes left in our grass for a fund-
raiser and promptly destroyed by my
son (because "flamingoes aren't sup-
posed to stand on two legs anyway,"),
is the boys' preferred place to play,
mostly because--I'm sure of it--their
dad and I paid the equivalent of sev-
eral felt hats from Williamsburg to
have a large backyard with a fence.
Although, the boys' fondness for the
front yard might also be because the
they like to show all our neighbors
how they play tee-ball barefooted,
hang from the mailbox, pull each
other through the grass with a jump
rope (not recommended) and some-
times, urinate in the dirt.
Before I moved to the backyard to
make way for the Revolutionary War,
I wanted to finish pruning the roses
and take limbs off the River Birch,
because, of course, I want our front
yard to look nice when the boys are
beating each other on the ground.
As quick as I laid cut limbs on the
grass, the boys were hauling them off
to their "fort," and pretending they
were swords. But my middle son,
Owen (5), who thinks jokes involving
his bodily functions are the ultimate
in humor, doesn't understand the
Revolutionary War the same way that
Ford (7), who once read the phone
book just for fun, does.
"I'm going to go get a gun from the
garage," Owen told Ford.
I looked around for passersby,
ready to assure them that my boys
weren't talking about real guns. Just
another one of those tricky parts of
parenting in today's world. Except,
explaining toy guns would be much
easier, I thought, than those times I
had to explain why Owen yells "Let's
get Trojan ready" in the front yard.
(Answer: his tee-ball team is named
the Trojans.)
"They're not guns," Ford yelled at


up to $11,000 per call if
they call names on, the list.
Registering for the list
will not free you from calls
from research surveys,
charities, political parties
(stand by) or other com-
panies that have sold you
something within the last
18 months.
I also recommend if a
charity calls and you are
moved to donate to the
cause, ask for a mailing
address and send the money
directly to the charity.
Some of the telemarketers
will keep up to 90 percent
of the money you donate if
you do it directly through
the call. That is probably
not where you want your
money to go!
More questions? Call
HIey MoneyMan at 778-
0353.


Owen. "They're muskets!"
Owen came back with a battery-
operated laser gun that has a siren.
Ford threw his felt hat at the ground
and stomped his foot. "Oweeeeen!" he
yelled. "They didn't have laser guns
back then! And their guns didn't have
sirens! We're talking about, like, 100
years ago!"
I looked up from my pruning.
"Actually, it was more than 200 years
ago, Ford," I said.
Owen went back to the garage and
came out with a football helmet on his
head.
"What are you doing now?" Ford
asked.
"I'll be the helicopter pilot," Owen
said. "I'll shoot down the bad guys."
"They didn't have helicopters
either!" Ford was screaming now.
"Come on, grab a musket and let's
fight the South."
"The British," I corrected. "The
North fought the South in the Civil
War."
'"Whatever."
Owen pointed his laser gun at me
and asked if I was British.
I finished my yard work while the
boys slid on their bellies through
the "swamps" of the battlefield and
chased down run-away Big Wheels...
I mean, horses. They continued to
fight, alternately, the South and the
British, and eventually, Ford gave up
and let Owen use his laser gun with
siren.
No, my boys don't need at book to
learn about being dangerous. But
that day, when the Revolutionary
War, Civil War and Gulf War were
all seemingly fought simultaneously
on our freshly mowed lawn, I realized
that perhaps what my boys do need is
a history book.

HS-5 conducts

NSW training

with SBT-20

at NAS Jax

By Lt. Allen Langston
HS-5 PAO
The "Nightdippers"
of HS-5 conducted
naval special war-
fare training (NSW) with
Special Boat Team 20
(SBT-20) from NAB Little
Creek, Va. March 25-27.
The training flights pro-
vided the opportunity for
senior squadron members
to refresh their skills and
allowed junior personnel to
experience NSW operations.
Operations included person-
nel cast and recovery, special
patrol insertion extraction
(SPIE), fast roping, rappel-
ling and K-duck deployment.
The first day, SBT-20 and
HS-5 conducted cast and
recovery operations in the St.
Johns River just north of the
Buckman Bridge. Casting
consisted of bringing the
helicopter to a 10-foot/10-
knot hover while the swim-
mers jumped out the cabin
door. The recovery consisted
of two different methods: one
from a 70-foot hover using
the hoist and the other via
a special operations ladder
from 15 feet.
The next day, the opera-
tions used Outlying Field
Whitehouse for SPIE and
then proceeded to NAS
Jacksonville for fast roping
and rappelling. SPIE con-
sisted of seven people hang-
ing 120 feet below the heli-
copter. The fast rope opera-
tion was conducted from a
20-foot hover and the rap-
pelling from a 40-foot hover.
These evolutions consisted
of both day and night opera-
tions. Fast rope and rappel-
ling operations are extremely
useful for rapidly inserting
special operations forces into

hostile terrain or onto ships.
The tactics allow for troop
deployment when landing is
not possible or advisable.
The final day of training
consisted of the K-duck oper-
ations. During this training,
a 1,000-pound combat rubber
raiding craft was attached
to the bottom of the helicop-
ter and deployed along with
swimmers from a 10-foot/10-
knot hover. The operations
were conducted in the river
just east of helo spots one
and three.
They started during the
day and went into night so
pilots and boat team mem-
bers could get their required


training and quali-
fications. K-duck
operations are
useful for rapidly
inserting special
operations forces
into an aquatic envi-
ronment with the
required gear and
a means of further
transporting them-
selves into hostile
territory. Loading
the craft on the
bottom of the heli-
copter can be very
challenging. It can
take even the most
experienced crews
15 to 20 minutes to
load the boat and
for inexperienced
crews upwards of


an hour.
While helicopter pilots can
simulate the profiles required
for these operations, this type
of training does not replace
the quality of training that
occurs when there are actual
people jumping and hang-
ing out of the aircraft. The
coordination and teamwork
required to accomplish these
types of operations also pro-
vides invaluable training.

NAS Jax celebrates Earth Day FFSC offers educational


From the NAS Jax Environmental
Department
The Northeast Florida
Environmental Compliance
Partnering Team took part
in the festivities at the Jacksonville
Landing celebrating the 38th anni-
versary of Earth Day. Hundreds
gathered for the festival to learn
about conservation, reducing energy,
preventing pollution, and recycling.
"We are here every year to let the
public know that the Navy is con-
cerned about environmental issues
and that we do our part for envi-
ronmental stewardship," said NAS
Jax Environmental Director Kevin
Gartland.
The volunteers at the booth handed
out stickers, bookmarks and flyers
about environmental responsibility
and educational programs the station
offers.
"It was a great opportunity to meet
educators who are looking for another
place to visit that teaches about the
environment and things kids can do
to help," remarked NAS Jax Assistant
Natural Resources Manager Angela
Glass. "There are several teachers
ready to plan their field trip to the
base now!" ,
Many people stopped by the booth
to grab a bag and fill it up with all
the things they need to learn about
the environment. This year's display
included fire equipment NAS Jax for-
esters use during a controlled burn.
Some of the questions asked included
why the station performs controlled
burns on their properties and how it's
done.
Jarret Towns is interested in becom-
ing a firefighter and was anxious to
try on the gear. "This is cool!" he said
when trying on the hat, jacket and
holding the drip torch. The drip torch
is a heavy-duty aluminum canister
that the foresters use to start con-
trolled burns to eliminate some of the
underbrush that fuels wildfires.
Karsen Newman, 6, loves coming to
the Earth Day celebration every year
according to his mother, Andrea. "He
is concerned about the environment
and this is a great place to learn," she
said.

Prestigious addiction treatment reps visit NavHosp Jax


By Marsha Childs
NHI Market'ing
Visitors from the prestigious Hazelden Clinic, one
of the world's largest and well respected addic-
tions treatment facilities located in Minnesota,
toured Naval Hospital Jacksonville's Substance Abuse
Rehabilitations Program (SARP) April 1-2. The hos-
pital's program is modeled after Hazelden's Living in
Balance treatment program.
Bureau of Medicine and Surgery SARP Director Charles
Gould recommended Naval Hospital Jacksonville for
their tour. He said, "Jax has always been supportive of
the Substance and Abuse Rehabilitation Program. They
are well ahead of other Navy SARPs in implementing the
Living in Balance program."
Hazelden Clinic Program Supervisor David Schreck
and Manager of the Professionals and Residence Program
Kathy Graf reviewed the hospital's overall addictions
treatment program. Schreck said, "There are a lot of simi-
larities in terms of going through the assessment process
and what questions we might ask the client before they
actually arrive for treatment."
"Many of the Navy counselors are coming to see
Hazelden to see how we do treatment and we really want-
ed to see the same thing (in military treatment facilities),
and this is the facility that was recommended," added
Graf.
Mental Health and SARP Department Head Dr. Quinn
Bastian stated, "They gave us some great feedback such
as creating specialized treatment tracks for patients with

post traumatic stress disorder or other co-occurring men-
tal health problems. Our programs are similar in that we
both focus on treating the same classes of problems. Our


programs are different in that they have in-house medi-
cal staff and a dedicated hospital ward for detoxification.
They treat adolescents whereas we only treat adults. They
typically have 200 patients at once. We typically have
about 30. They rely more on peer-directed group counsel-
ing. Our Navy substance abuse counselors actively guide
more of the group therapy."
The Navy has plans to send all SARP counselors to
Hazelden for the cost-effective 12 principle Living in
Balance training, a research-based addictions treatment
and recovery curriculum. This treatment uses a non-
threatening approach to lifestyle issues such as personal
wellness, spirituality and stress management that are
often neglected.
CSC(SW/AW) Nathaniel Watford, an addictions coun-
selor at SARP, is scheduled to attend Hazelden's Living
in Balance training in June. He looks forward to the
day when all Navy SARPs offer the same program to
treat addictions. "This type of treatment is the way of the
future. We provide our patients the tools for making life-
style changes so that when they come to a crossroads, they
have the skills to cope," he said. "If you are always going
to the bars, we make suggestions to break that habit. The
bottom line is the choice is theirs."
The SARP treatment program is open to all active duty.
The member's command drug and alcohol program advisor
may refer them for treatment. It is also available to active
duty family members, retirees and their family members,
18 years and older without a referral. For more informa-
tion about the program, please call 542-3473.

Holocaust Remembrance Day May 2


From the NAS Jax Multicultural
Awareness Committee
To truly understand the horror
of the Holocaust, it is neces-
sary to know about the events
leading to it and the severity of the
concentration camps.
The Holocaust was the systematic,
bureaucratic, state-sponsored perse-
cution and murder of approximately
six million Jews the primary victims,
but also five million others, approxi-
mately 11 million individuals wiped
off the Earth by the Nazi regime and
its collaborators.
It is hard to grasp the idea that it
isn't just 11 million deaths, but 11
million people whose lives were cut
off because of racism and hate, all in
a period of 11 years (1933-45).
"Holocaust" is a word of Greek ori-
gin meaning "sacrifice by fire." The
Nazis, who came to power in Germany
in January 1933, opened the first con-
centration camp. They believed that
the Germans were "racially superior"
and that the Jews, deemed "inferior,"
were an alien threat to the so-called
German racial community.
During the era of the Holocaust,
German authorities also targeted
other groups because of their per-
ceived "racial inferiority": Roma
(Gypsies), the disabled, and some of
the Slavic peoples (Poles, Russians,
and others). Other groups were per-
secuted on political, ideological, and
behavioral grounds, among them
Communists, Socialists, Jehovah's
Witnesses and homosexuals.
In 1933, the Jewish population of
Europe stood at over nine million.
Most European Jews lived in coun-
tries that Nazi Germany would occu-
py or influence during World War II.
Once Hitler was firmly in power,
his plans for the ending of the strug-
gle between the Aryan race and the
so called "inferior races" was set to
work. These races were feared as a
biological threat to the "master race"
purity. Hitler gained further support
for his ideas via the Nazi Propaganda
Ministry, headed by Dr. Joseph
Goebbels, which filled the popular
media with pro-Nazi material.
Anything opposing the Nazi Party
was censored and removed from the
media. All forms of communication:
newspapers, magazines, books, pub-
lic meetings, rallies, art, music, mov-
ies, and radio, was controlled by the
Nazis.
"Book burnings" of books that didn't
gel with the "Nazi ideals" were fre-
quent, some due to the their authors
being Jewish, such as Albert Einstein
and Sigmund Freud, but many of
them by non-Jews such as Ernest
Hemingway, Jack London, Sinclair
Lewis, and Helen Keller (a particu-
larly offensive person to the Nazis
since she successfully overcame her
handicaps).
By 1945, the Germans and their
collaborators killed nearly two out of
every three European Jews as part of
the "Final Solution," the Nazi policy to
murder the Jews of Europe. Although


ews, w om the Nazis deemed a pri-
ority danger to Germany, were the
primary victims of Nazi racism, other
victims included some 200,000 Roma
(Gypsies). At least 200,000 mentally
or physically disabled patients, main-
ly Germans, living in institutional
settings, were murdered in the so-
called Euthanasia Program.
As Nazi tyranny spread across
Europe, the Germans and their col-
laborators persecuted and murdered
millions of other people. Between two
and three million Soviet prisoners of
war were murdered or died of starva-
tion, disease, neglect, or maltreat-
ment.
The Germans targeted the non-
Jewish Polish intelligent for kill-
ing and deported millions of Polish
and Soviet civilians for forced labor
in Germany or in occupied Poland,
where these individuals worked and
often died under deplorable condi-
tions.
From the earliest years of the Nazi
regime, German authorities perse-
cuted homosexuals and others whose
behavior did not match prescribed
social norms. German police offi-
cials targeted thousands of political
opponents (including Communists,
Socialists and trade unionists) and
religious dissidents (such as Jehovah's
Witnesses). Many of these individuals
died as a result of incarceration and
maltreatment.
In the early years of the Nazi
regime, the National Socialist gov-
ernment established concentration
camps to detain real and imagined
political and ideological opponents.
Increasingly in the years before the
outbreak of war, SS and police offi-
cials incarcerated Jews, Roma, and
other victims of ethnic and racial
hatred in these camps.
To concentrate and monitor the
Jewish population as well as to facili-
tate later deportation of the Jews,
the Germans and their collaborators
created ghettos, transit camps, and
forced-labor camps for Jews during
the war years. The German authori-
ties also established numerous
forced-labor camps, both in the so-
called Greater German Reich and in
German-occupied territory, for non-
Jews whose labor the Germans sought


to exploit.
Following the invasion of the Soviet
Union in June 1941, Einsatzgruppen
(mobile killing units) and, later, mili-
tarized battalions of Order Police
officials, moved behind German lines
to carry out mass-murder operations
against Jews, Roma and Soviet state
and Communist Party officials.
German SS and police units, sup-
ported by units of the Wehrmacht and
the Waffen SS, murdered more than
a million Jewish men, women, and
children, and hundreds of thousands
of others.
Between 1941 and 1944, Nazi
German authorities deported millions
of Jews from Germany, from occupied
territories, and from the countries of
many of its axis allies to ghettos and
to killing centers, often called exter-
mination camps, where they were
murdered in specially developed gas-
sing facilities.
In the final months of the war, SS
guards moved camp inmates by train
or on forced marches, often called
"death marches," in an attempt to
prevent the allied liberation of large
numbers of prisoners.
As allied forces moved across
Europe in a series of offensives
against Germany, they began to
encounter and liberate concentration
camp prisoners, as well as prisoners
en route by forced march from one
camp to another.
The marches continued until May 7,
1945, the day the German armed forc-
es surrendered unconditionally to the
allies. For the western allies, World
War II officially ended in Europe on
the next day, May 8 (V-E Day), while
Soviet forces announced their "Victory
Day" on May 9, 1945.
In the aftermath of the Holocaust,
many of the survivors found shelter in
displaced persons (DPs) camps admin-
istered by the allied powers. Between
1948 and 1951, almost 700,000 Jews
emigrated to Israel, including 136,000
Jewish displaced persons from
Europe.
Other Jewish DPs emigrated to
the United States and other nations.
The last DP camp closed in 1957.
The crimes committed during the
Holocaust devastated most European
Jewish communities and eliminated
hundreds of Jewish communities in
occupied eastern Europe entirely.
The Holocaust spanned years
with suffering and death spread
throughout these years of terror. It
was decided after much debate the
27th of Nissan would be the day of
remembrance. If the 27th of Nissan
would affect Shabbat (fall on Friday
or Saturday), then it would be moved.
If the 27th of Nissan falls on a Friday,
Holocaust Remembrance Day is
moved to the preceding Thursday. If
the 27th of Nissan falls on a Sunday,
then Holocaust Remembrance Day is
moved to the following Monday.
Throughout the nation remem-
brances will be held from April 27
to May 4 and the day the Holocaust
Remembrance Day will be observed by
the Department of Defense on May 2.

Florida Striders Track Club

CPRW-11
ailors from Commander Patrol and Reconnaissance
Wing Eleven (CPRW-11) volunteered their time to
work with the Florida Striders Club April 12.
The Florida Striders Track Club is a family-oriented
club that stages three Grand Prix races each year and a
social each month. Profits from these events are funneled
back into the community to fund projects that promote fit-
ness and health. The volunteer work by CPRW-11 Sailors
is part of a command wide goal to dedicate off-duty hours
of community service in the local area.
CPRW-11 set up their station at the corner of River
Road and Kingsley Avenue in Orange Park, where
IT1(SW) Patrick Kean and SK1 Hodewou Sokpoh manned
tables and handed out refreshments to the runners as
they passed through. "Everyone from the commodore
down, gets involved," said Kean, co-coordinator of CPRW-
11l's community relations program. "We have nothing but
support from our chain of command."
The positive attitudes of CPRW-11 personnel during this
event were quite infectious. The Florida Striders Track
Club was especially appreciative. "Everyone came in so
well organized. There was nothing they were not willing
to do. They arrived and set up in the blink of an eye! I'd
like to send a special thank you to IT2 Brandon Howell,
who has helped us tremendously," said Striders Director
Keith Poythress.
"It feels great to give back! It shows that we actually
care about Jacksonville and our neighbors. It helps to let
the community know that we are there for them," said
Howell. "Our job is not just being in the Navy, it is sup-
porting the local community as well."
"We were all ecstatic about the large turnout of Wing-li
personnel who showed up to support the run."

When crisis comes home


By Chaplain (it.) Joe Molina
4MARDIV AAB B CO/Navy Operational
Support Command lax
A few years ago, a nation-
al newspaper ran a story
illustrating the complexi-
ties involved in trying to describe
American families in terms of
structure, income, livelihood and
ethnicity.
Here are some of the different
ways that the modern American
family was depicted:
Dual income household/no
children
Single income-married/two
children
White, young urban profes-
sional
Young, Black urban profes-
sional
Young, Hispanic urban pro-
fessional
Or how about...
Young, pregnant/unmarried/
urban professional


CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


Multiple incomes, married/ no
kids
Blended families
Please note that this listing of
descriptions is not exhaustive.
The complexity of contempo-
rary family structures can give a
demographer a migraine.
Regardless of the family's make-
up, all families have one thing in
common -crisis! Crisis is the great
equalizer of the American family.
Crisis comes home in every size to
everyone sooner or later.
When crisis comes home it
takes center stage and interrupts
the regular routines of family life.
I make two assumptions:
1. Whatever type of family we
are in, we will all face crisis some-
time or other. Therefore, prepara-
tion for crisis is essential to fam-


Chaplain (Lt.) Joe Molina
ily survival.
2. While faith in God is impor-


tant and will give strength to deal
with a crisis, faith will not pro-
vide immunity from experiencing
crisis.
I suggest the following primer
on how to be prepared to face cri-
sis:
1. Open your home to the coun-
sel of the wise.
There is a preparatory phase
to dealing with crisis. While the
Marine that goes to boot camp
should never desire to fire a shot
in anger, each Marine should be
prepared and trained to respond.
In preparation for the crisis of
life, let us open our homes and
our lives to people of integrity,
maturity and wisdom.
These are people that have
proven to have our best interest
at heart. They can provide invalu-


able support and counsel througE.i
out our lives, crises notwithstandl
ing.
The rule of thumb is: Let us be
wise in the friendships we culti-
vate and the proactive prepara-
tions to "fight the good fight."
2. Exercise your faith.
The common human habit is to
place our faith "on hold" when all
is going well. Consequently, when
a crisis erupts, religious faith is
dusted off and invoked as though
it were a "lucky charm" or talig
man.
I propose that the power of fai=
in a living God is a dynamic and
precious resource meant to enrich
us year-round.
As we appropriate and exercise
our faith, the following timeless
verity becomes a reality: "in all
these things we are more than
conquerors through Him who
loves us (Holy Bible, Epistle to
the Romans 8:37).

ciation for their service to help defend
our freedom."

military personnel who plan to pursue
a post-secondary education, including
vocational and technical training.

yourself fully to assessing
where you are spiritually,
a time to nurture yourself
and gain a vision of where
you want to go. It's also
a time to understand the
spiritual journey of oth-
ers and incorporate that
into your own growth and
understanding.

RELAUNCH: Military Spouse Career Program has some changes


From Page 1


"This is really a fantastic pro-
gram. The people heading up this
program have been listening to
the needs and concerns of poten-
tial candidates and have respond-
ed with these changes. It's a huge
plus tor everyone. Because this
is a pilot program, all rules are
up for discussion and revision to
continue to make is a great pro-
gram," continued Woods. "And,
I'm thrilled wit the turnout here
today. Hopefully we'll get a lot
more people enrolled."
To apply for the new program,
spouses must first stop at the
Navy College Office where they
will meet with a counselor who
will review their educational his-
tory, discuss their goals and cre-
ate a record for them. If they don't
have their prerequisites complet-
ed, they will be sent to one of the
educational institutions on base to
help them get started so eventual-
ly they do qualify for the program.
After visiting the Navy College
Office, candidates and potential
candidates meet with WorkSource
State Veteran's Representative
Gregory Spiro and WorkSource
Senior Career Coach Conni
Smolder, also in the Navy College
Office, who will determine if their
academic program fits into the
initiative's guidelines.
Once approved for the program,
a special account is created for
the spouses and all monies are,

Advancement Initiative about edu-
cational and career opportunities.
paid directly to the school they are
attending. Another requirement is
that they are stationed here for a
year. After a year, they can trans-
fer and continue their education
with funding from the program.
Each client is closely monitored
throughout the program by Spiro
and Smolder. "When they first
come to us, we discuss the process
of the program, education direc-
tion they are headed and offer
career coaching. We watch their
progress throughout the program
and when they graduate, we go
to the phase two portion of the
program which is finding them
employment," added Spiro. "I'm
an employment specialist so I
help our clients find jobs through
our networking sources. The ulti-


mate goal of this program is to get
people working. And then, once
they start working, we continue to
monitor them for about a year to
gather data for the Department of
Labor."
The final step of the qualifica-
tion process is with the FFSC who
will verify the service member's
rate and transfer date. Once it is
approved, an account is set up and
they can begin taking classes.
And, finding a good paying job
is why many spouses showed up
at the relaunch event. "I'm here
today because I'm searching for
career change. I have a degree
in business management. We
just moved from Virginia where I
was a deputy sheriff. I just don't
want to do that here," explained
Kawani Jakes, whose husband
is stationed at NS Mayport and
brought a flyer home about the
event. "My son is 11 so I want to
be home when he's home espe-
cially when my husband is out to
sea."
"I'm here to get money for
school. I'm have four more class-
es left to earn my degree and it
will cost about $2,000 to finish
my education. My husband went
to the Navy College Office and
picked up a flyer and brought it
home so we could look into this
program," added Mary Sarante.
"If we qualify, it would be a lot of
money we don't have to pay and I
could finish my degree. I plan to


get,my degree in accounting and
find a good job."
According to Career
Advancement Account Project
Manager Cindy Wadsworth, get-
ting spouses educated so they can
find high paying, successful jobs
is the main goal and many tools
are available through this pro-
gram to help them achieve just
that. "Our job is to make sure that
what you do in training equates to
a job that will be so portable and
so much in demand that no mat-
ter where your next duty station
is you'll have a very good chance
of walking right into that job," she
said. "We want to know if your
game plan is the right game plan
and if it's going to give you the.
degree, certification or licensing
you need to be able to walk into
that job and stay in that job when
faced with another move."
"This program covers tuition,
books, licensing fees, exam costs
and tools needed for your new job.
You just need to commit your time
to do the training to become suc-
cessful in this program," she told
the group of spouses who showed
up at the event.
"Many people ask why they are
just being given money to finish
school at no cost. This is a new
program that has never been done
before. The success of this pro-
gram directly affects the military
spouses who come behind you
down the road. DoD and DoL want


this program to branch out to all
bases and to all military spous-
es. So, do well with your studies,
because we want you to succeed
and with your success comes the
success of others later. That is the
only obligation you have," she con-
tinued.

A review of the basics

By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor 0 1 imMEmmU E mHhEmeal


My husband has played
golf for many years,
starting as a young man.
He is not a frequent player; rath-
er he is a 'few-times-a-year' golf-
er. Recently, I purchased golf les-
sons for his birthday. The instruc-
tor complimented my husband
on several parts of his game but
quipped, "Everyone has to review
the basics on a regular basis to
keep their game sharp."
I'm not a golfer but the wisdom
of this instructor could not be
ignored. Whatever our endeavor
reviewing the basics is important.
For military spouses the basics
include basic knowledge and
resources. Let's take a moment
to review a few military spouse
basics.
Service member basics: We need
to know certain things about our
service member. Take time to get
this info from your Sailor/. These
include:
Rank (Pay grade)
Rate (military job title)
Command/Unit (including
department and/or division)
Quarterdeck number
Unit/command mailing
address
Social Security Number
Copy of Page Two
Copy of most recent Orders
Ombudsman contact informa-
tion
Recent copy of LES (Leave and
Earning Statement)
In addition to these items your
service member should also pro-
vide you with a current power of
attorney which empowers you to
make decisions and take certain
actions on behalf of your service
member in his absence.
If your service member is deploy-
ing soon he will have deployment


aouun 3 .rinnurt


Beth Wilson
.specific information to provide for
you. Take the time to talk to him
about any upcoming pre-deploy-
ment events that you should
attend, even if this is not your first
deployment.
Know your resources. As a Navy
spouse there are basic resources
and information you should know.
Military One Source an
'employee assistance program'
provided by the Department
of Defense for all military (both
active duty and Reserve/National
Guard) and their immediate fami-
lies. Services include everything
from assisting in finding local
childcare, relocation assistance to
pre-deployment readiness, finan-
cial counseling, confidential coun-
seling and limited free legal ser-
vices. www.militaryonesource.com
800-342-9647
Local Support Whether you
are Army, Navy, Reserve, regard-
less of branch or duty status you
are able to access support services
at the base nearest to you. So if


ie


you are on vacation 1,000 miles
from your base but 15 minutes
from an Army installation (even
if it is not your branch) you can
access that local base for medical,
family support, legal support, even
to replace your ID.
Local Family Support Your
installation Fleet and Family
Service Center (FFSC) can be your
lifeline for information, counsel-
ing, seminars, referrals and other
services to support you in your
success as a Navy spouse. Contact
them for a current listing of
upcoming events and services. Get
on their email list. Not sure where
the FFSC/ACS is located check
your installation website or logon
to www.ffsp.navy.mil.
Command Family Support
- A Navy Command Family
Ombudsman is your command's
family-support resource. These
volunteers will be able to offer you
insight, information and refer-
ral for military life. But perhaps
more importantly they are the
official resource for command spe-
cific information. Be sure to get on
their email tree and mailing lists.
Keep their numbers handy.
Dependent ID Cards and
Vehicle Decals check your ID
and decals for expiration dates.
Your service member is required
to complete paperwork for renewal
of your ID.
Take time to assemble this infor-
mation and update it as necessary
on at least an annual basis. These
are the basics that will keep 'our
game' sharp.

Providing now and in the future


By Lt. Craig Morris, JAGC
Regional Legal Service Office Southeast

investing for the future can be
a daunting task. This article is
designed to provide some insight
into what investment vehicles are
available. The first thing you need to
do is determine what your needs will
be in the future, and then seek out a
qualified financial planner that you
trust to help you achieve those goals.
If you are not investment savvy
enough to go it alone, here are some
of the common ways to invest and
provide for yourself and your family.
Provide for loved ones
when you no longer can
The easiest thing that you can do is
draw up a will. Having your wishes
outlined in a will prevents the incon-
venience and expense of settling your
affairs when there is no will. A will
ensures that your intentions will be
followed and may help to prevent bad
blood between competing relatives.
Another vehicle for providing for
your family is insurance. There are
many forms of insurance; here are
some things that you should keep in
mind. First, as an active or reserve
service member, you are eligible for
Servicemembers Group Life Insurance
(SGLI). You can also elect to cover
your spouse and dependents. SGLI
is extremely affordable and, unlike
some private commercial policies, will
cover death resulting from an armed
conflict.
Your local Regional Legal Service
Office Southeast office can assist you
in filling out your beneficiary desig-
nation form. If you determine that
you need additional insurance, pri-
vate commercial insurance can be
purchased to supplement your SGLI,


but be careful to do your research
and comparison shop between insur-
ers. There are many companies offer-
ing "financial" products to the mili-
tary community, but several of these
companies have been cited by federal
and state regulators for deceptive and
misleading practices.
Provide for retirement
Many different vehicles are avail-
able for retirement planning. All of
these options have their own advan-
tages and disadvantages. You must
research to find the best options for
you. A recent vehicle that is now
available to service members is the
Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). TSP is
designed to work much the same as
401K plans that are provided by pri-
vate employers. TSP is in no way
tied to military retirement, and is a
separate account from the standard
retirement.
The plan allows service members to
begin contributing immediately with
pre-tax dollars, and the account is
portable if the service member leaves
the military. TSP limits when you can
take distributions without penalty
(usually not until age 59/, or in cer-
tain hardship cases), and where the
money is invested (there is a limited
list of funds in which you can distrib-
ute the money).
TSP and 401K plans are great ways
to start investing for retirement using
money that will be tax-deferred until
you retire and that will come out of
your pay before you have a chance to
spend it. In addition, since the con-
tribution comes out pre-tax, it reduces
your income and your tax liability
Individual retirement accounts
(IRAs) and ROTH IRAs are another
way to invest for the future. Again,


IRAs have pros and cons about which
you need to research or ask a qualified
financial planner. IRAs also allow for
the investment of pre-tax dollars, and
grow tax-deferred, with restrictions on
when the money can be withdrawn,
but do not have restrictions on where
the money can be invested. IRAs do
have administrative fees associated
with them.
It is best to shop around to different
brokerage houses for the best rate on
fees. ROTH IRAs differ from tradi-
tional IRAs in that the money invest-
ed initially is with post-tax dollars.
Finally, remember there are limits
set by the federal government on how
much of your pre-tax earnings can be
invested.
If you are using several different
vehicles to invest for retirement, be
wary of not only the limits on each
investment, but also the cumulative
effect on your tax liability of all of
your contributions across all of your
investments. Remember, whatever
manner of preparation for retirement
that you choose, any planning is bet-
ter than no planning at all.
Provide for special needs
This is not an all-inclusive list of the
financial planning options available,
and research needs to be done by each
individual investor on what is best.
Other alternatives include 529 plans
for education and health savings
accounts. These plans are designed
to create benefits to those with large
education and health care expenses
by deferring or alleviating tax conse-
quences. These accounts limit when
you can withdraw the money.
RLSO SE can help you in your plan-
ning. Call 542-2565, Ext. 3006 at NAS
Jax for more information.


Etiquette for the millennium good manners count
By KimBerly Blakeley
Special Contributor your fingers to break it into


Etiquette is a code of
behavior, based on
kindness and con-
sideration. Manner's have
been proven to be the most
attractive, most practical,
or least objectionable way
of doing things. Manner's
have definite advantages;
you can establish a pleas-
ant relationship, give your-
self confidence and make
yourself more attractive.
Always remember to fol-
low the hosts lead in any
social situation.
When you're waiting
for dinner to begin and
between courses, hands
should stay in your lap. You
may rest your wrists on the
table between courses, but
not your elbows.
Whether you're invited
to a public establishment
or to someone's home for
a formal meal, there are
guidelines to follow. Before
you arrive at the table,
you should not have gum
in your mouth and hands
should be cleaned.
When attending a ball,
you will wait for the person
in charge to give the ok to
begin eating. When invited
to an in-home dinner, your
indication to begin eating
is when your host picks up
his/her utensil and begins
to eat.
Ladies should place their
purse on their lap and not
on the table regardless how
pretty it is. If the chair next
to you happens to be empty,
you may place it there.
You can expect to use

fine linen at a formal din-
ner therefore, ladies should
not wear heavy lipstick as
the oil from lipstick stains
and many times doesn't
come out when linen is dry
cleaned.
As soon as everyone is
seated, your napkin is
placed on your lap. Blot
your lips with a napkin, .do
not wipe. If you have to get
up during the course, place
your napkin folded on your
seat and push your chair
in. There are other options
for napkin placement, but
I personally feel this works
best.
A service plate serves as
an under plate for the plate
holding the first course,
which will be brought to
you. When you have more
than one fork placed to the
left of your setting, you
always start from the out-
side and work your way in.
The larger fork or dinner
fork is for the main course.
The dinner knife is to the
right of the plate, cutting
edge facing inward. Spoons
are to the right of plate and


pieces as you go along and
butter one piece at a time.

Enjoy green tea time

By Maj. Karen E. Fauber
DeCA dietitian

W ant a boost for your health? Try a cup of
hot or cold green tea brimming with anti-
oxidants instead of the usual soda or coffee.
Available in bags, loose leaves, bottles, and cans,
green tea contains the antioxidants known as cat-
echins which are beneficial for, good health. Drinking
green tea may help reduce the risk for coronary heart
disease, as well as stomach, throat'and skin cancers.
An extensive Japanese research study recently
published in the Journal of the American Medical
Association found that people who drank five or more
cups of green tea daily had a lower risk of death from
disease than those averaging less than one cup a day.
Don't lose heart over the amount consumed dur-
ing the study. You don't have to drink a gallon of tea
each day because the size of a cup of tea in Japan is
3.3 ounces compared to the 6- to 8-ounce cup in the
United States.
And, researchers did observe benefits from drink-
ing as little as one to two cups of green tea a day. In
addition to green tea's health improvements, you also
can save 30 percent or more if you purchase it at your
commissary.
Trying to lose weight
Growing evidence shows that drinking unsweet-
ened, fresh-brewed green tea, on ice or hot, may be the
ultimate weight-loss drink. Research has shown that
drinking tea several times a week has contributed to
20 percent less body fat than those who drank none.
So if you are trying to lose a few pounds, or want to
maintain your weight, drinking green tea may help
you do just that. Try adding a few lemon, orange, or
lime slices along with some mint leaves to spice it up
a little. Anyway you drink it you can enjoy the health
benefits of green tea.

Families prepare to help children cope during military deployments


By Ms. Patricia Opong-Brown
TRICARE Management Activity

In today's military, deploy-
ments are part of life. Pending
a deployment in the states or
overseas, the family, especially
the children, may have anxi-
ety and concerns. Not to worry,
there are many ways to help chil-
dren cope with the absence of a
deployed parent.
According to the Uniformed
Services University of the Health
Sciences in Bethesda, Md., there
are three important central
approaches to help children cope
during deployment. Reinforce that
the deployed parent is trained to
do his or her job, reinforce that the
family and children at home also
have jobs, and ensure that commu-
nication with the children is age
appropriate.
Just like doctors have special
training to take care of people who
are not feeling well or firefight-
ers have special training to fight
fires, the active duty parent has to
assure children that he or she has
the training and skills to do the
work while deployed.
Military medical experts sug-
gest reminding children that while
their parent is deployed, they have
roles in the household that are
just as important. The jobs can
be helping mom or dad around the
house, being successful in school,
taking on new choresor maintain-
ing a healthy lifestyle.
"On the other hand, it is not
healthy to tell a son that he is
going to be 'the man of the house,"'
said Jennifer Wickizer, commu-
nity readiness consultant, Airmen


and Family Readiness Center
(A&FRC), Bolling Air Force Base.
This puts too much pressure and
stress on the child.
"Parents need to discuss the
pending deployment with children
in ways that are age-appropriate,"
said Wickizer.; She also stresses
that parents should take their
cues from the child to determine
how much information should
be presented. Provide just the
right amount of information and
answer questions accordingly, but
do not get into information over-
load mode. "Encourage children
to express their feelings: sad, mad
or happy, and validate their emo-
tions," she said.
Since preschoolers have no con-
cept of time, experts recommend
parents use visuals to illustrate
when mom or dad will be coming
home. For instance, says Wickizer,
"a candy jar with jelly beans is a
good visual. Count the number of
jelly beans for each day the par-
ent is expected to be away, and
each day the child can take a jelly
bean out of the jar. As the deploy-
ment moves on, the jar has less
jelly beans in it."
The consultant cautions, parents
against marking the return date
on the calendar because deploy-
ments are very unpredictable. For
example, said Wickizer, "the par-


ent can be held over or extended.
When the parent does not come
home on the day with the big red
circle, this creates a huge disap-
pointment for the child. On the
other hand, unlike the big red cir-
cle on the calendar, a candy jar
can easily be manipulated. If the
parent at home gets news that the
deployment is extended, he or she
can slip more candy into the jar, or
remove candy if the deployed par-
ent will be coming home sooner."
"Planning an event in the
future, such as a family vacation,
not only gives the
child something positive to focus
on, but also reassures the child
that the parent will come home.
Just do not make any plans too
close to the anticipated return date
in case the deployed member is not
able to come home at that exact
time," recommended Wickizer.
Before he deploys at the end
of the year, Senior Master Sgt.
LesRoy Williams, assigned to the
Logistics Readiness Squadron at
Seymour Johnson Air Force Base,
N.C., and his family will watch
Sesame Street's Talk, Listen,
Connect: Helping Families During
Military Deployment with their 4-
year-old daughter.
All military families with chil-
dren 3- to 5-years-old can get
streaming video or request a free
bilingual kit at www.sesamework-
shop.org/tlc. The kit educates
parents and caregivers on how to
help children cope with all areas of
pre-deployment, deployment, and
homecoming.
Russell Research, Inc., in con-
sultation with the Military Family


Research Institute, surveyed 367
spouses of active duty, National
Guard, and Reserve person-
nel. More than 80 percent of
those surveyed rated the Sesame
Street DVD and kit highly effec-
tive and easy to understand for
both children and adults. Families
also reported that the program
increased communication about
deployment and reduced negative
behaviors.
"Unlike preschoolers, elementa-
ry school-age children have a bet-
ter concept of time, but candy jars
work for this age group as well,"
said Wickizer. At this age, the
deploying parent and the child
can come up with ways to stay
in touch or think of each other.
For instance, the child and par-
ent can wear synchronized stop
watches and set the alarm to go off
at a determined time. Each time
the alarm goes off, it will mean,
"I'm thinking of you," suggested
Wickizer.
Abstract thinking begins
at ages 9 through 12. This age
group understands the concept of
a return date. Military experts
recommend providing children in
this age range with stationary and
stamps to write letters or set up e-
mail accounts for keeping in touch
and communicating with their
deployed parent. The A&FRC pro-
vides writing kits for children of
various age groups.
In addition to writing letters,
children can also write in journals.
Health Net Federal Services, the
TRICARE managed care support
contractor for the northern region,
has produced a journal aimed at


Military children. Life, a Kids'
Journal, helps Military children
successfully deal with challenges,
especially deployments.
The journal helps children make
sense of their feelings while mom
or dad is deployed. Download
the journal from the link found
at www.hnfs.net/common/newsRe-
sources/Kids+Journal+News+Re
lease.htm. The Military Health
System Web site has a "Kid's
Corner," where children will be
able to share their writing, art-
work or drawings at http://mhs.
osd.mil/kidscorner.jsp.
According to Wickizer, high
school kids are a little harder to
please and e-mail is the best rec-
ommendation for teenagers. By
working with the child's school,
the deploying parent can arrange
to make morale calls to the child
at school. Deployment journals are
another tool for middle school and
high school kids.
When it gets closer to his deploy-
ment date, Williams will talk about
where he is going with his 16-year-
old daughter and 12-year-old son.
If the location is not classified, he
will have them research the coun-
try online. Wickizer recommends
www.deploymentkids.com. "This
Web site provides information
about various deployment loca-
tions, but it is set at kids' level so
that just the right amount of infor-
mation is provided."

children coping with deploy-
ment, go to your Fleet and Family
Support Center or visit www.

More civilian providers accepting TRICARE Standard; officials continue work to expand network


From the TRICARE
Management Activity


There's good news
for TRICARE
Standard beneficia-
ries-more civilian pro-
viders are accepting new
patients, according to a
recently released survey.
Yet, TRICARE officials
acknowledge that increas-
ing the number of provid-
ers and types of providers
across the Nation remains
a high priority, especially
in remote areas.
The findings, part
of the Department of
Defense Survey of Civilian
Physician Acceptance of
TRICARE Standard, show
that in Fiscal Year (FY)
2007, almost 93 percent of
responding physicians in
53 hospital service areas
(HSAs) were aware of the
TRICARE program, with
84 percent of physicians in
those 53 HSAs accepting
new TRICARE Standard
patients.
"The survey results are
very encouraging," said
Army Maj. Gen. Elder
Granger, deputy director,
TRICARE Management
Activity (TMA). "It shows
that more doctors are work-
ing with us to ensure that
our Reserve component
warriors, retirees and their
families have access to qual-
ity care."
The 2007 survey was
the final installment of a
three-year national effort
to measure awareness of
TRICARE and to determine
the number of physicians
that accept new TRICARE
Standard patients. The
Department randomly
surveyed physicians in 20
states in both FYs 2005
and 2006. The 10 remain-
ing states and Washington,
DC, were surveyed in FY
2007. Physicians in local
HSAs were also surveyed
each year. Approximately
40,000 physicians from a
variety of medical special-
ties were randomly picked.
The aggregate results
show that civilian provider
awareness and acceptance
is generally high, but may
vary depending on loca-
tion. In addition, the sir-
vey revealed a need for
increasing both TRICARE
awareness and acceptance
among psychiatrists-a spe-
cialty critical in meeting the
behavioral health needs of
veterans of the Global War


on Terror.
Specifically, the three-
year findings across all
states and HSAs show:
Approximately 87 per-
cent of all physicians sur-
veyed are aware of the
TRICARE program.
About 81 percent of
physicians that accept
new patients also accept
new TRICARE Standard
patients.
Of those accepting
new TRICARE Standard
patients, almost 91 percent
do so for all patients, rath-
er than on a case-by-case
basis.
Reimbursement rates
were among the most com-
monly cited reasons for
not accepting TRICARE
Standard.
"The survey exceeded our
expectations," said Rich
Bannick, Ph.D., director,
Performance Evaluations,
TMA. "In the three sur-
veys completed since 2005,
more than 50 percent of
the physicians we sur-
veyed responded. That's
a very respectable survey
response rate in the health
care industry. The survey
results provide us a reli-
able measurement as to our
effectiveness in expanding
access to TRICARE pro-
viders and the challenges
of getting more doctors on
board. Congress has given
additional guidance to con-
tinue the survey process
through 2011," he said.
While active duty service
members receive the bulk of
their medical care at one of
the more than 500 military
treatment facilities, family
members, National Guard
and Reserve members, and
retirees often rely on civil-
ian physicians for their
health care needs.
"In 'some locations, access
to TRICARE Standard pro-
viders remains a major
concern for family mem-
bers and retirees," Granger
said. "Some doctors limit
the number of TRICARE
patients they see or refuse
to see them altogether. This
leads to fewer choices for
beneficiaries."
States showing a need
to increase acceptance and
awareness of TRICARE
include Alaska, Maryland,
Colorado, Hawaii,
Oklahoma, New York, New
Jersey, and Texas. Hospital
service areas with lower
than average TRICARE


acceptance include
Washington, DC; Raleigh,
North Carolina; Seattle
and Olympia, Washington;
Lihue/Kealakekua/Wailuku,
Hawaii; Dallas; and Falls
Church, Virginia.
TRICARE leaders, with
support from their managed
care support contractors,
are working to overcome
these challenges. "We are
reaching out to state offi-
cials, medical associations,
and individual physicians to
educate them and appeal to
their sense of patriotism in
accepting TRICARE," said
Granger.
The outreach is show-
ing promising results. For
example, the Oregon leg-
islature approved incen-
tives including a one-time

tax credit for new providers
in the TRICARE network,
plus an additional annual
credit for treating patients
enrolled in TRICARE.
Since 2004, Oregon's
TRICARE provider network
has increased by 35 percent.
In addition, the gover-
nors of 20 Western States
have supported TRICARE's
efforts to encourage more


health care providers to
accept new TRICARE
patients. Their combined
efforts led to an overall
increase in western region
TRICARE network doc-
tors from approximately
80,000 in 2004 to more than
125,000 today.
"Expanding our network
of TRICARE providers is
critical to our ability to care


for our beneficiaries," said
Granger.
"Today, more than
220,000 men and women
are TRICARE providers. We
are grateful to them for see-
ing the value in supporting
those who serve our Nation,
and we are actively seek-
ing other physicians who
want to become part of our
TRICARE provider team."

How to get toddlers to eat nutritious foods


By Maj. Karen E. Fauber
DeCA dietitian
Up, down, in, out, and running
around, toddlers like to explore
and master their world including
the food they choose to eat. While not
always sitting still for very long, they
normally eat enough calories to grow and
thrive. Our role as parents and caretak-
ers is to ensure they are offered a vari-
ety of foods that provide the calories and
nutrients their growing, busy bodies need
during their early years. Toddlers need to
decide what and how much they eat of the
foods offered to them.
Food jags are common
Does your toddler want to eat only maca-
roni and cheese or dry cereal at dinner?
It is common for toddlers to go through
food jags where they want to eat the same
food over and over again. Don't be too con-
cerned if they only want to eat macaroni
and cheese, you choose the foods on your
child's plate. If you choose to give them the
same food regularly, try adding a different
food to their plate at meals and encourage
them to try it. Most food jags do not last
very long, especially if parents don't accom-
modate them.
Tame the new food fears
Tried offering broccoli and your tod-
dler did not eat it the first time? Well,
don't give up after the first try. It natu-
rally takes children up to 10 times trying
a new food before they accept it. Continue
to give the broccoli or any other new food
at meals and snacks without forcing them
to eat it. Remember to offer small por-
tions and encourage them to try it. And be
sure you're setting a good example! Serve
healthy foods that you like so your child
will see you enjoying what you're asking


him or her to
eat.
Serve child-
size portions
A couple of i,
tablespoons
are usually
plenty to serve, 4
especially for :
new foods.
Small plates
and small por- ''
tions are just i.. / ..
right for small
eyes and stom- ,K.
achs, less over-
whelming. ,1'
Let your child
decide what '
to eat. Don't
force them to
eat something
if they don't
want it. It's OK
to have them *
try a bite, but -
let them decide
how much they '
will eat after
the first bite.
Eat meals
together
Children
need to eat with other people, especially
their families. Toddlers are more likely to
try new foods when they see their brothers,
sisters or parents eating with them. Look
for opportunities to offer healthy foods to
your toddler at home and outside activi-
ties. Fruits and vegetables can be offered
to a group of children as a new adventure
for them to try.


Toddlers
need to feed
themselves
Tried let-
ting your child
feed himself
and spent an
hour cleaning
up? Toddlers
need to feed
themselves
and practice
makes perfect.
While they
are practicing
/ //and learning
S t how to master
this skill, they
are develop-
ing critical eye
and hand coor-
dination along
T- with self con-
fidunce. Your
child should
start finger
feeding around
9 months and
try using uten-
sils by 15 to
18 months.
Provide the
opportunities
for your child and help out only when nec-
essary. When you are feeding your toddler
try not to force in that last bite, allowing
his hunger cues to guide how much he
eats. Don't get into a power struggle with
your child, let him have control over how
much he eats and how he eats it.
Toddlers need to eat often
Small stomachs and short attention


spans lead to toddlers needing to eat five
to six times a day. Children need and like
structure in their lives, so scheduled meals
and snacks are ideal for them. Snacks can
help the child get many of the nutrients
and calories that are needed for growing
bodies.
Snack ideas for toddlers
Cheese sticks and pretzels
Whole grain cereals (circles and square
shapes mixed together in a cup)
Apple wedges and cheese slices
Frozen banana slices
Cut carrot coins and ranch dressing
Sliced, rolled up tortilla spread with
nut butter mixed with mashed banana
Yogurt
Cottage cheese and fruit
Crackers and cheese, turkey, or ham
Avoid the junk food
Chips, cookies, candy and sodas all con-
tain a lot of empty calories without any
real nutritional value. As toddlers grow
and eat small amounts of food frequent-
ly, remember to include healthy foods in
their meals and snacks. Also, eating junk
food regularly can contribute to a toddler
becoming overweight at some time in life.
Establishing healthy habits at a young age
will greatly benefit your child as he or she
grows.
Enjoy the eating experience with your
toddler as he tries new foods, develops
skills and masters his world. It can be a
fun, rewarding experience for both of you,
For more information on feeding your
child or other nutrition topics, go to http://
www.commissaries.com and visit the DeCA
Dietitian, post your questions on the DeCA
Dietitian Forum and be sure to look for
other useful information in The Dietitian's
Voice archive.


Tutoring for your child: An A-to-Z guide


From LIFELines


Chances are that at some point dur-
ing your child's education, your
son or daughter might need a little
extra help with schoolwork. Maybe its her
algebra test, or maybe his reading skills
are not quite up to speed. Whatever the
subject may be, help awaits you.
On-base help
If you are looking for resources on-base,
Marine Corps Community Services or the
Fleet and Family Support Division are
informative and reliable places to start.
They strictly cater to military quality of life
issues and have an abundance of resources
for military youth.
Operation Hero, developed by the Armed
Services YMCA, assists students having
academic difficulty due to frequent moves
and deployments. Enrollment in the 16-
week program is free, and small-group
tutoring is available in all subject areas by
certified teachers.
For children of Navy personnel, CNET
Community Service & Outreach has cre-
ated numerous programs to enhance self-
esteem and promote academic success.
Off-base programs
There are also many low-cost resources
available off the base without having to
resort to expensive commercial business-
es. If one-on-one assistance is what you
are seeking, try the quick tutor locator at
Tutor Help.
This online resource where you set the
price range and choose the subject area


The NAS Jax Fleet and Family
Support Center (FFSC) is offering
Maximize Parenting with Love and
Logic classes every Monday beginning
June 2, July 21, Sept. 8
and Oct. 20 at 1:30 p.m.
The classes will run five
weeks at the same time
each week. Parents can
begin on any Monday, but /
they should complete all /
five classes sequentially.
The goal of this program
is to provide an over-
view of young children ,'
to include developmental
stages emotionally, physi-
cally and behaviorally
with suggested interven-
tions that will empower IL
parents to positively par-
ent while maintaining
control through knowl-
edge. In other words,
"how to maintain your
sanity while rearing a happy well adjusted
child."
As anyone who has been a parent can
tell you, it is not an easy job. What works
for one child may not work for another. It
is a lot of trial and error. When you buy a
new appliance, car, etc, a book of instruc-
tions always accompanies the purchase.
Although we don't purchase our children,


will guide you to an appropriate tutor in
the your area and will display background
references on all tutors.
In virtually every major city there exists
a branch of the Boys & Girls Club of
America. Hosting such programs as Power
Hour and Project Learn, their goal is to
raise homework proficiency in students
ages 6 to 12. You can locate your nearest
club directly on their web site and only
pay a low yearly fee for enrollment in the
programs.
Other helpful community resources
Consider locating a high-school teen or col-
lege student in your neighborhood. Often
times, these students are looking for a
part-time, after school job where they can
also gain a valuable reference from you. In
addition, you can call your local college or
university and ask to post an ad on their
employment bulletin board free of charge.
Look for resources within your own city.
Some local libraries present literacy and
tutoring programs during the week at little
or no cost.
You can also place a call to your city's
community recreational department. They
often incorporate sporting activities along
with designated homework help time.
As you begin your search for a tutor,
don't forget to be safe. Ask for past refer-
ences or a background check, if available.
Also find out what past experience or
classes the tutor has taken in the subject
area in order for your child to get the most
out of their tutoring time.


there is no book of instructions that accom-
panies the gift. It is left up to the parent
to seek out those instructions, guidelines
and/or suggestions.
The best way to pursue them is to attend
a parenting class that
provides an overview and
".?offers suggestions and
guidance for the care of
this precious gift. The
earlier the intervention,
the easier the job.
The years from birth
.' I to age five are the most
A critical and important in a
child's development. It is
these early years that lay
the foundation for the bal-
Sance of the child's future.
:This is the time of a
child's life when their
knowledge base is expand-
S ed the quickest and their
development changes at
an astronomical pace.
What is learned now is
carried for a lifetime. The trick for you as
parents is how to teach in a way that maxi-
mizes and enhances the potential without
limiting that healthy sense of self.
Early childhood development parent-
ing classes offer parents the guidelines for
healthy development of a child.
To enroll, call the FFSC at 542-2766,
Ext. 127 to sign up.
