returned to NAS Jax this week
.L after a five-month deployment
to Al Asad Air Base, Iraq, where they
flew 340 combat sorties and logged
,more than 1,800 hours with 100 per-
cent sortie completion.
Their homecoming was highlighted
with a four-plane, diamond formation
fly-over on Monday led by the squad-
ron's Commanding Officer Cmdr. Steve
Fimple. Family and friends enthusi-
astically welcomed their Checkmates
home.
The theme of the Checkmates home-
coming celebration was, "The Best
Christmas Present Ever." Checkmate
wife. Teri Fimple, said that spouses
and children could hardly contain their
enthusiasm.
"As you can imagine we've got some
very excited children who expect their
daddy or mom home for Christmas.
The spouses and children gathered
for a party this past week where the
.kids decorated and stuffed stockings
for their dads and moms. We boxed
the stockings and sent them 'to the
North Pole' so that Santa can deliver
them when he picks up the daddies
and mommies to bring them home,"
explained Fimple. h o d

four and a half months flying non-tra-
ditional intelligence, surveillance and
reconnaissance combat missions in
support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Secretary of Defense's requirement
for increased intelligence, surveil-
lance and reconnaissance assets, the

NAS Jax recognizes Sailor of the Year


By Kaylee taRocque
NAS lax Deputy PAO


I Tl(AW) Stacey Thinn of the NAS
Jax Security Manager's Office
has been selected as the NAS Jax
2008 Sailor of the Year and will rep-
resent the base in the Commander,
Navy Region Southeast Sailor of the
Year competition in late January.
Thinn's reaction to being selected
was one of surprise. "My first thought
after being told I was selected was
that this is so coof that a black shoe
(surface Sailor) was chosen on an avia-
tion base," she said excitedly.'
"My other thought was that God has
placed me in a position where I can
be an advocate for single parents in
the Navy, for Sailors who have excep-
tional family member challenges and
for women in the Navy. The Navy tra-
ditionally is dominated by males, so
here's an opportunity for me say, 'Hey,'
look it can be done although there will
be sacrifices.'"
Thinn, a native of Trenton, N.J.,
joined the Navy to help pay off some
rather large student loans after com-
pleting her first year of-law school.
After graduating from boot camp
in Great Lakes, Ill. she attended
Information Systems Technician (IT)
"A" School in San Diego, "That's where
I met my husband. He got out'of the
Navy and we had three wonderful chil-
dren before we divorced several years
later," she said.
Thinn's first duty station was the
Shore Intermediate Maintenance
Activity San Diego at NS San Diego
from 1996-99. After attending IT "C"
'school in Pensacola, she took a spe-
cial programs assignment at Joint

ITI (AW) Stacey Thinn.
Communication Support Element
(JCSE) at MacDill Air Force Base in
Tampa, Fla. where she worked with all
three sister services reporting directly
to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. JCSE is
the only sea duty command in Tampa.
"That was such an excellent tour,
I really enjoyed it because I worked
with the other branches of service and
got to see how they do business. We
were also deployed within usually only
24 hours notice. This tour provided a
great opportunity for my children to
spend time with their paternal side
of the family because they are all in
Tampa," explained Thinn.
"It was-interesting how I 'ended
up stationed in Tampa. We were in
Tampa for a funeral and I happened
to see a Sailor walking around so I
did some investigating and found out
about the command there. Usually,
theylonly accept E-5s and above but I
went there as a third class. After my
four-year tour, I left as a first class,"
she said proudly.


Her next tour took her on sea-duty
assignment with the HS-7 ,"Dusty
Dogs" at NAS Jax where she complet-
ed rigorous work-ups prior to a seven-
month deployment onboard USS Harry
S. Truman in support of Operation
Iraqi Freedom.
During this time, Thinn sent her
children, Kristopher. 12, Jaason, 10,
and Taalya, 8,' to live with her friend
'in California while she participated
in work-ups. "My two sons both have
Sickle Cell Anemia and Kristopher
became really sick.'The Navy sent
me TAD to California for six weeks
while he was stabilized and then I was
able to meet my squadron in Fallon,
Nev.," explained Thinn. "Then I drove
to California, picked up my kids and
took them back to Tampa. Luckily, the
Navy has been very supportive of my
situation."
In 2007, Thinn transferred to
NAS Jax where she is currently the
assistant security manager and the
Executive Department leading petty
officer. "I am responsible for develop-
irg Sailors by training them, ensuring
they are aware of the various programs
available to them, their career and
education development and advance-
ment programs," she said.
"I'm also the command's Exceptional
Family Member Program representa-
tive. If it wasn't for this program and
people guiding me in the right direc-
tion, things might not have worked
out the way they did so I want to make
sure I give the appropriate informa-
tion to Sailors who need it. I help them
enroll in the program and provide
them with all the various tools they

FLTCM(SS/SW) Rick West is the choice of CNO
Adm. Gary Roughead to serve as the 12th Master
Chief Petty Officer of the Navy.


Fleet Master Chief

Rick West selected

new MCPON

By MC2(SW) Rebekah Blowers
Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs

The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), Adm.
Gary Roughead announced his selection of
Fleet Master Chief (FLTCM) (SS/SW) Rick
West, as the 12th Master Chief Petty Officer of
the Navy (MCPON) in NAVADMIN 349, dated
Dec. 5.
West currently serves as Fleet Master Chief,
U.S. Fleet Forces Command and previously served
as Fleet Master Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet. He brings
to this assignment 27 years of fleet experience,
including six tours at sea highlighted by leadership
positions aboard submarines and surface ships.
In addition to his experience as Fleet Master
Chief in the Pacific and Atlantic, he served as
Chief of the Boat in USS Portsmouth (SSN 707),
Command Master Chief in USS Preble (DDG 88),
and Submarine Squadron 11, and Force Master
Chief, Submarine Force U.S. Pacific Fleet.
"From my earliest days in the Navy, and
throughout my career, chief petty officers have
shaped and influenced me. Master Chief West has
the experience, insight and confidence to continue
to provide me that which I need to hear, not want
to hear. He will have that degree of access and
trust. I look forward to working closely with him in
all that is ahead," Roughead said.
In the NAVADMIN, Roughead also praised
MCPON(SW/FMF) Joe Campa Jr., who took the
helm in July 2006, citing numerous milestones
Campa achieved in his time serving as the senior
enlisted member of the Navy.
"MCPON Campa can take great pride in his
many contributions during his watch. His extraor-
dinary leadership, keen insight, and sound judg-
ment enhanced the role of the chief petty officer.
He authored the Chief Petty Officer's Mission,
Vision and Guiding Principles, revitalized the
MCPON's Leadership Mess, and empowered Fleet,
Force, and command master chiefs. Most impor-
tantly, he re-established the deckplate leadership
that is the essence of a U.S. Navy Chief Petty
Officer. His efforts significantly increased the
impact of senior enlisted leaders and improved the
readiness of the Navy," Roughead said.
The MCPON serves as an advisor to the CNO
and to the Chief of Naval Personnel in matters of
importance to enlisted personnel and their fami-
lies.
The MCPON is also an advisor to the many
boards focused on enlisted personnel issues; is the
enlisted representative of the Department of the
'Navy at special events; may be called upon to tes-
tify on enlisted personnel issues before Congress;
and, maintains a liaison with enlisted spouse orga-
nizations.

The SNJ-4 Texan was the Navy's advanced trainer aircraft from 1936 through the 1940s and a primary trainer in the
1950s. It is generally considered the most successful training aircraft ever designed and was flown extensively by the
Navy. The 550-hp Pratt & Whitney R-1340 radial engine had a range of 750 miles at a cruising speed of 170 mph. Here,

FROM THE HOMEFRONT


Hey MoneyChic!
It's Christmas time again and I hardly
feel the spirit with the lack of funds in our
bank account. My wife was laid off this
summer and still looking for work. My
family normally thinks of me as a Santa
over the holidays, but this year I don't
know where the money for gifts will come
from, any ideas?
MoneyChic says: It's a tough year finan-
cially for many this Christmas. Don't feel
guilty if you need to pare down spending.
Isn't the point of a present the expression
of affection, not the dollar amount spent
on the gift? Talking with family members
about scaling back might actually bring
relief from other family members as well
that are feeling the pressure. Get creative-
decide a theme, like all gifts needing to be
a specific color, to make family gift giving
fun. Or put all names in a hat and draw
names, instead of buying each person in
the family a gift. Instead of laying out a
lavish spread for guests, start a potluck
tradition. The key to new gift changes is
handling the situation with genuineness


and graciousness. Remember, sometimes
the best gift of all is the gift of yourself,
just spending time with loved ones.
Hey MoneyChic!
I'm stationed away from my family and
mailing many holiday gifts back home. Wow,
I never knew shipping could be so expensive.
Any ideas how to save in this area?
MoneyChic says: According to Consumer
Reports, the best prices in mailing may be
found with the US Postal Service. You can
even arrange online for your mail carrier to
pick up boxes for shipping from your home.
If you print your postage at home, you'll
also receive a 3.5 percent discount on prior-
ity mail. However, if you go with Fed EX or
UPS, tracking and insurance are automati-
cally included in the price, while they cost
extra with the USPS. Remember, the ear-
lier you mail a Christmas gift, the better
off you'll be in price. You can priority mail
by Dec. 20, but it will be costly to procrasti-
nate . anything mailed Dec. 23 has to go
by Express Mail to make it's destination by
Christmas. Or you can also consider mak-
ing things simple by mailing gift cards.

New Year's

fireworks

advisory

From NAS Jax Fire
Prevention Division
Except for command-
controlled displays,
the possession of
explosives and fireworks
for sale, storage, or use of
any description on board
NAS Jacksonville property,
are strictly prohibited.
Fireworks are fun to
watch, but are extremely
dangerous in the hands of
amateurs. Fireworks acci-
dents can turn a joyful
celebration into a painful
memory when children,
and adults are injured
while improperly using fire-
works. The NAS Jax Fire
Prevention Division recom-
mends attending public fire-
work displays because
professional programs are
safer, and produce superior
displays then what might
be accomplished at your
home. Always think about
"fire safety" during your
New Year's celebration;

Campa credits

education, deckplate

leadership with

career success

By MCI Tim Comerford
Commander, Navy Region
Mid-Atlantic Public Affairs


During his tenure as Master
Chief Petty Officer of the
Navy (MCPON), Joe Campa
Jr. has emphasized the importance
of good leadership and education.
While reflecting on accomplish-
ments of the past two years, the
Navy's senior enlisted Sailor humbly
summed up his legacy.
"If there is anything I want to be
remembered for, it is for being a good
chief," said Campa. He uses his own
Navy career as an example of how
education opens the path to success.
He wasn't always sure he wanted to
join the Navy. "My father served in
the Army during the Korean War,
and my uncle was a Marine during
Vietnam. I think the seed was planted
with those two pushing me towards
military service," said Campa, a
native of Lynnwood, Calif. "I thought
about both of those branches of ser-
vice until I met a Navy recruiter
whose passion for going to sea and for
serving our nation made me want to
join," Campa said.
Like many Sailors at the time,
Campa joined the Navy having never
finished high school. "I don't think
at first that it had that much impact
on me," he said. "I started out as a
deck seaman. I was learning as much
as I could about the Navy and the
ship, but I knew that if I wanted to do
more, I had to finish my degree."
After obtaining his GED, Campa
started taking college courses.
"Throughout my career when the
opportunity presented itself, I would
take a class," Campa said. "At first
it was just to improve my leadership
- writing classes, public speaking
- those abilities that would comple-
ment my ability as a leader and as
a corpsman. I came to a point where
I had taken several of these classes,
and I thought of shaping them into a
degree."

Rick West during a ceremony at the Sail Loft at the Washington Navy Yard.


He received his bachelor of sci-
ence degree from Excelsior. He then
attended the Naval War College
where he graduated with a master
of science and strategic studies. The
MCPON's first mentor is tied close-
ly with his vision of what a leader
should exemplify deckplate leader-
ship.
"My first chief had a big" impact on
me. I still look at what he did," Campa
said. "When he spoke, he spoke with
such credibility because he had such
a strong knowledge of his ship, his
rate and the people that he led; that
inspired me to want to do well for
him. He planted some seeds but I
have been fortunate throughout my
career to have good, -strong, deckplate
leaders -- those who kept their focus
on the people and measured their suc-
cess through them.
"That is what I tried to bring back
with deckplate leadership. That kind
of leadership is traditional of the
chiefs' mess and critical to our people
and our Navy."
Campa feels every Sailor should
have a sense of Navy history. "They
need to have a grasp of the organiza-
tion they belong to. I don't believe
any leader can be effective if you don't
understand who you are, what you do
and where that came from."
Campo believes the new CPO evalu-
ation was long overdue. "We devel-
oped the mission, vision and guid-
ing principles shortly after I became
MCPON. It goes to the heart of the
services a chief should always pro-


vide, no matter what job title. Guiding
principles serve as the foundation to
who we are. "You never stop being
the chief. I felt there was a better
way to align what we are evaluating
our CPOs on and what is expected of
them as chiefs."
Campa believes being the first
Hispanic MCPON is a classic example
of Navy diversity.
"No matter what your background,
what you look like, what the color of
your skin is, the opportunities that
you have in the Navy and how far
you can go in this organization are
based on your abilities," Campa said.
"I don't think there is a person in the
Navy today that feels that they have
to sacrifice their culture or heritage to
be part of this organization."
While Campa believes improving
the quality of life helps retention, he
says that the best retention tools are
inside of each naval leader.
"Give your Sailors a sense of accom-
plishment," he said. "Good leaders
setup their Sailors for success and
take a genuine interest in the growth
and development of their Sailors.
There isn't anything that a well-led
Sailor will not do for our Navy and
our country."
Campa knows that the incoming
MCPON, Fleet Master Chief (FLTCM)
(SS/SW) Rick West, will have his own
style.
"He will have to do it his way,"
Campa said. "As long as he keeps.the
Sailors and their families as the focus,
I think he will do fine."


Commissary gift


certificates show


support for military
By Ta'Lisha Brown
DeCA corporate communications
Delicious way friends and family can show their
support for military families is to give commissary
gift certificates or donate them directly to military
charities that assist families.
During the holidays, gift certificates have been proven to
be handy for food basket programs by allowing recipients
to purchase the groceries they need and prefer, rather
than getting food items they might not be able to use.
"And, since commissaries sell food at cost, military fami-
lies save an average of 30 percent or more by using their
commissary benefit," said Philip Sakowitz Jr., director and
chief executive officer of the Defense Commissary Agency.
Popularity of the gift certificates have increased steadily
over the years, from combined in-store and online sales
that totaled $3.4 mil-
lion in fiscal 2006 to
more than $3.9 mil-
lion in fiscal 2008.
Anyone civilian
or military can pur-
chase or donate the
gift certificates, but
only authorized shop-
pers can spend them.
There are four ways to purchase a "Gift of Groceries",
gift certificate:
Visit the customer representative at your local comr
missary to buy $25 gift certificates.
On the Web, go to http://www.commissaries.com to
buy gift certificates in denominations of $5 to $100 using
Certifichecks' secure online order form.
By telephone, dial toll-free (877) 770-4438 and place
your order with a customer service representative.
Mail or fax your gift certificate request using a special
order form available through a link on DeCA's "Gift of
Groceries" Web page at http:// www.commissaries.com/cer-
tifichecks/index.cfm. Print the form, fill it out and mail it
to the Certificheck address on the form.
You can donate gift certificates to any of the five mill
tary nonprofit organizations that participate in the "Gift
of Groceries" program Air Force Aid Society, Fisher
House -Foundation Inc., Operation Homefront, Operation
Interdependence and the United Service Organizations -,
through a secure Certificheck Web page; click the "Donate
Online" link on DeCA's "Gift of Groceries" Web page.
Another way to support military families with commis-
sary gift certificates is to donate to the Scholarships for
Military Children program. In doing so, you can help send
a military child to college.
The Web page is at http://www.militaryscholar.org.

JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, December 18, 2008 5



Byers retires after 47 years of federal service


By Clark Pierce
Editor
L^ I ew people have been part
of so much change at NAS
FL JJacksonville than our BRAC
Manager Freddie Byers. Most recently,
his analytical, planning and manage-
ment skills were critical to implement-
i'Ig the 2005 Defense Base Closure and
Realignment Commission (BRAC) deci-
sions that have benefited our installation,"
said NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr.
_"When Freddie and his wife, Elizabeth,
move to their retirement home in the beau-
tiful Ozark Mountains, they will be sorely
missed and fondly remembered by our NAS
Jax community," said Scorby.
"Born in Memphis, Tenn. and raised
in West Memphis, Ark., Byers' military
career began when he was sworn into
the Navy in Little Rock, Ark. in August
1961. After completing boot camp in San
Diego, he reported to Aviation Electrician
Mate School at Naval Training Command
Jacksonville, Fla.
-During his 20-year career in naval avi-
ation, his duty stations included: VT-6,
NAAS Whiting Field, Fla.; VP-8, NAS
Patuxent River, Md.; Binh Thuy, Republic
of Vietnam; *
,, AAEBS, NTC Jacksonville, NAS Jax;
VP-44, NAS Brunswick, Maine; NADC,
Warminster, Pa.; VP-45, NAS Jax; and
NAMTD 1001at NAS Jax where he retired
from active duty as a chief aviation electri-
cian mate.
- What-were some of his most interesting
active duty assignments?


Photo by Clark Pierce
NAS jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. said he will always value this painting of
an EP3-Airies from VQ-2, his former command. Artist (and former P-3 flight engineer) Freddie
Byers plans to devote more time painting military aircraft when he retires next month:,


"I was a P-3 Orion flight engineer
assigned to Naval Air'Development Center
Warminster, where we carried out sono-
buoy acoustic research. Much of our work
was classified. I was also an aircrewman
in the RA-3B Skywarrior a photo recon
aircraft more commonly referred to as the
'whale,"' said Byers.
"In 1976, I deployed with VP-45 from
NAS Jax in support of UNITAS the annu-
al multinational readiness and interop-
erability exercise among U.S. and South


American forces. As any UNITAS Sailor
might tell you, a number of outstanding
social receptions were also part of the exer-
cise. As flight engineer, I did my best to
keep our pilots from enjoying themselves
too much."
In 1982, after retiring from the Navy,
Byers joined Naval Air Depot Jacksonville
as an instrument worker and electronics
training leader. He also became a total
quality management instructor.
Ten years later, Byers transferred to


NAS Cecil Field where he served as the
total quality leadership manager.
Since 1994, he has served NAS
Jacksonville as total quality leadership
manager, metrics manager, certified Navy
mediator for workplace disputes, and
BRAC manager/coordinator.
, "All my changes in jobs since 1982 were
the result of RIFs (reduction in force). Over
the long run, each change had a positive
impact on my career," said Byers.
"My role as a workplace dispute media-
tor was both challenging and enjoyable.
The underlying cause of most disputes is
poor communications. It always gave me a
good feeling when I brought an employee
and supervisor together for a confidential
airing of differences. Removing a formal
complaint by mediating, a solution that
both parties supported usually resulted in
improved productivity and morale in the
shop."
As BRAC 2005 manager and senior ana-
lyst, Byers collected facts and data about
NAS Jax to answer more than 70,000 ques-
tions about possible scenarios from BRAC
decision makers.
According to federal law, all BRAC 2005
actions must be completed by Sept. 30,
2011. Fqr NAS Jax, that means the new
VP hangar and the adjacent Fleet Support
Unit facility.
Byers is an avid hunter and an artist,
whose oil paintings are sought after by
co-workers. An example of his military
art, an EP-3 Aries of VQ-2, can be seen in
the skipper's office. He intends to do more
hunting and painting when he takes resi-
dence in Bull Shoals, Ark.

In other words, if Petty Officer
Smith is domiciled in Florida,
but lives in Virginia because his
orders sent him there, Virginia
cannot collect personal property
tax on his Accord or other cars.
Whether Petty Officer Smith
actually pays property taxes to
the state of his domicile (here,
Florida) is irrelevant.
Unfortunately, there is a loop-
hole in the SCRA because this
section of the SCRA does not spe-
cifically state it applies to jointly
owned property, many states will
tax jointly owned property under
the theory that they are taxing
property that is not owned by a
servicemember. In other words,
if the Smiths have titled their
vehicles jointly, then some states
will tax the vehicles because Mrs.


Smith, who is not a servicemem-
ber, owns the vehicle.
(2) Naturally, titling the vehi-
cles in only the servicemember's
name presents the opposite
advantages and disadvantages
- Petty Officer Smith, by titling
the family wheels in his name
alone, can avoid, the loophole in
the SCRA.
The downside of course, is that
if Petty Officer Smith dies, the car
becomes part of his estate the
things he owned when he died. To
change ownership, his wife will
have to go to court to probate his
estate. The new owner will be the
individual named in Petty Officer
Smith's will, or if he doesn't have
a will, according to the state's
default rules. Those rules would
likely give ownership of the cars

:learn those are available at the


commissary, too. For a low-cost
($5 tb $7) gift for a friend who
embraces a "green" lifestyle, roll
a green, reusable commissary gro-
cery bag around a compact fluo-
rescent light bulb (CFLs use up
to 75 percent less energy) and a
bottle of white distilled vinegar.
Fasten the bag securely with a
chip clip, then use kitchen twine

use the vinegar.
Environmentally friendly vin-
egar, made from natural ingredi-
ents, costs less than one-half cent
an ounce. It's an essential ingredi-
ent in many recipes and is versa-
tile enough to replace any number


of less environmentally friendly
household cleaners.
For streakless windows: Wash
with equal parts warm water and
distilled white vinegar. Dry with a
soft cloth. /
For frost-free car/ windows:
When frost is expected before
morning, prevent it from coating
your windshield by wiping windows
the night before with a solution of
one part water to three parts white
distilled vinegar.
Unclog the showerhead: Wrap
a terry cloth rag saturated with
distilled white vinegar around the
showerhead, and let set overnight.
By morning, calcium and hard
water deposits will be gone and


the showerhead will work like new.
Soap scum buster: Wipe down
shower doors with a sponge or cloth
soaked in distilled white vinegar to
remove soap residue.
Keep flowers longer: Add
2 tablespoons sugar and 2 table-
spoons distilled white vinegar to a
one-quart vase of water. Trim flow-
er stems and change water every
five days.
Eliminate fruit flies and
gnats: Stir together 1 cup water,
1 tablespoon sugar and 1 table-
spoon white distilled vinegar in
a small bowl. Add 2 drops of dish
soap, but don't stir. Set the bowl
on the counter to attract the flies
or gnats once in the liquid, they


can't get out.
Get the last drops: When you
can't get the last bit of mayonnaise
or salad dressing out of the jar,
dribble a little vinegar into the
jar, replace the lid and shake well.
You'll be amazed at how much
you've been wasting.
Make fluffier rice: Add 1 tea-
spoon of white distilled vinegar to
the boiling water before adding
rice. Once cooked, the rice will be
easier to spoon and less sticky.
Make a vinegar pie: As odd as
it may sound, this pie is easy, eco-
nomical and tastes good. Follow

T heir recent boots-on-the-

port of Operation Iraqi Freedom,
required that VS-22 pilots, air-
crew and maintainers prepare for
a dangerous environment unlike
any Navy aircraft carrier. Each

pleted anti-terrorism and' desert
survival training, in addition to
qualifying with the M-16 rifle
and M-9 pistol.
The large Al Asad Air Base (for-
merly Saddam Hussein's premier

ed south of the Euphrates River
in the volatile, largely Sunni, Al
Anbar Province in western Iraq.

Navy personnel are required to
keep a firearm and body armor on
or near their person at all times.
The squadron brought four S-3B
Vikings to Al Asad, each equipped
with the latest LANTIRN (Low
Altitude Navigation Targeting
Infrared for Night) navigation
pod. LANTIRN is a terrain-fol-
lowing radar that enables pilots
to maneuver and surveill at low
altitudes during daylight or at


night. According to VS-22 Public
Affairs Officer Lt. Jason Tarrant,
the squadron flew about 80 per-
cent of its non-traditional intel-
ligence, surveillance and recon-
naissance (NTISR) combat mis-
sions at night.
"The Viking's IANTIRN infra-
red capability was invaluable for
taking away the cover of darkness
from enemy combatants," said
Tartant.
"The Checkmates routinely
detected heat signatures of vehi-
cles, shelters, people and IEDs


(improvised explosive devices)
-and relayed that information to
convoys and combat teams in the
affected area."
The Checkmates flew an aver-
age of three sorties a day. "Our
VS-22 maintenance personnel dis-
played tireless dedication to keep
these soon-to-be-retired birds
mission ready. As far as I know,
we sustained a 100 percent sortie
completion record," said Tarrant.

"Throughout history, warfare has assumed the characteristics of its age and the technology of its age. Today we see this trend continuing as we move from the Industrial Age warfare with
its emphasis on mass to Information Age warfare, that highlights the power of networked distributed forces and shared situational awareness ... within this wider context of military
transformation, network-centric warfare is one of the key concepts for thinking about how we will operate in the future."
Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, July 2001

navigation pod (obtained from retired

support of global war on terror.
The pod's high-speed digital video trans-

to battle commanders and ground units,
where the information can be used for
immediate attack by another aircraft, for
damage assessment, for locating targets
of opportunity or simply for determining
precise coordinates for targeting by other
weapons.
The install has enabled the venerable S-

The Best Gift


By Chaplain
(Cmdr.) David McElwain
Naval Hospital Jacksonville

Remember as a kid the
long list of toys I wanted
for Christmas. I can even
remember some that I got the
Lionel train set, the basketball
and hoop in fourth grade, the 22-
caliber rifle.
Most of those things that were
so vitally important to my exis-
tence as a kid are not only long
forgotten, but have not even phys-
ically existed for years.
The reality of life is that posses-
sions do not fulfill us. That's why
parents joke about all the expen-
sive toys they buy for holidays


and birthdays -
and then their kids
have more fun just
using their imagi-
nations to play
with the boxes. As
we may be momen-
tarily happy with
a gift we receive,
ultimately, after
we enjoy it for a
while, it's replaced
by the next new
thing.
More than the


Chaplain
(Cmdr.) David McElwain


presents I received,
I remember the
people who shared
my holidays. The
rituals involved
in celebrating
Christmas hold
more importance
than any one gift.
The rituals are
joined to the peo-
ple. When I was
little, my father
read the Christmas
story before any-


thing else started. Of course that
was about 5 a.m. because I woke
everyone up.
Dinner was my mother's tri-
umph. There was always a box
from grandparents, bringing them
to mind, bearing homemade pop-
corn balls and my grandmother's
buttermilk fudge.,
The memories surround rela-
tionships that supported, encour-
aged and fulfilled me and the rit-
uals developed which are keys in
remembering and creating mean-
ing in our lives.
As we celebrate our holidays
this year I encourage you to
reflect on the way you celebrate.
Think about the people who fill


your holidays with joy and happi-
ness.. Be conscious of the rituals
that are familiar and meaningful
to you.
Lastly, remember that holi-
days are really Holy Days. They
are times we remember -often
through ritual how sacred life
is, what that means to us as indi-
viduals, and where our lives are
made better because we relate to
God.
Your relationship with God
never ends. The best gift you can
give to yourself and to others is to
practice your faith during these
Holy Days.
Happy Chanukah and Joyous
Christmas.


So much to celebrate


By Chaplain
Lt.) Buster Williams
[NAS Chapel Center

L[ ike so many of you, I
I love the holiday sea-
L son -especially cel-
ebrating Christmas.
It is wonderful to see all
those gifts under the tree,
' hear all those Christmas
:Carols playing in the malls
:and on the radio, and yes,
:experiencing a bit of cold
weather to make it all feel
,like home.
Of course, it also a time
of holiday football games,
of gatherings with fam-


ily and friends for special
Christmas services, and
taking time out to do some-
thing extra for those less
fortunate than ourselves.
For me, the greatest thing
about Christmas is not the
Christmas spirit and all
those wonderful memories
- but rather the message
of Christmas itself. As a
Christian, it is wonderful
to be able to celebrate the
birth of Christ who came


Chaplain
(Lt.) Buster Williams


to bring me hope for the
future, as well as peace
with God in the present.
The gift of God's Son that
Christians celebrate this
time of year has been a won-
derful inspiration for giving
to others. So, you will see
volunteers for the Salvation
Army ringing their bells
at department stores and
around the nation this time
of year. You might have
asked yourself why people


give up their precious time
to ring bells out in the cold.
It is but one example of the
inspiration of Christmas to
put our own time and effort
into serving others.
So, as you celebrate
Christmas this year and
enjoy some well deserved
down time over the
Holidays, let me encour-
age you to think creatively
about ways you can help
those less fortunate here on
the home front. As members
of the military, the idea of
service is at the heart of our
commitment to serve our


country so that others can
be free. Our commitment to
sacrifice is strong and I am
grateful to be able to serve
with America's finest here
at NAS Jacksonville. As we
gather with our family and
friends this holiday season,
let us also remember those
deployed on our behalf
andsay a special prayer
for them and their loved
ones. Let us make sure that
their sacrifice does not go
unnoticed. I pray that you
will all enjoy a wonderful
Christmas and Holiday sea-
son.

CPRW- 11

helps YMCA

form Ultimate

Frisbee league

By ITI Patrick Kean
CPRW-11
T he Williams/DuPont
Family YMCA
joined forces with
Commander Patrol and
Reconnaissance Wing
Eleven (CPRW-11) to
launch a new Ultimate
Frisbee program for boys
and girls ages 6-.16.
The YMCA of the Jessie
Ball DuPont Campus is now
registering players for the
program that encourages
parents to enjoy the sport
along with their children.
Chris Parker, director of
athletics for the YMCA in
Mandarin, said, "We contact-
ed the National Organization
for the YMCA and they
want this to be a nation-wide
program. Starting in 2009,
Ultimate Frisbee will be
rolled out at YMCAs across
the United States."
Parker is spreading the
word about this new sport
being offered through the
YMCA with help from
Ultimate Frisbee players
at CPRW-11. Parker was
first introduced to the sport
when he observed some
players from CPRW-11
playing Ultimate Frisbee
as part of their weekly
command physical train-
ing. He immediately saw
the potential and learned
-all about the game.
Frisbees aren't for tossing
around on a warm summer
day any more, at least for
the Ultimate Frisbee fan.
The game is a non-stop con-
test of athletic endurance.
and skill for all levels.
The rules of play encour-
age sportsmanship, which

Williams/DuPont Family YMCA in Mandarin.


is why Parker and Ultimate
Frisbee enthusiast Lt.
Cmdr. Charles Mayfield of
CPRW-11 thought it would
be perfect for the YMCA.
"I thought this was a
great opportunity for adults
and youths," said Mayfield,
who is working with Parker
to build YMCA Ultimate
Frisbee leagues and form
teams.
"When you read the rules,
they talk about the spirit of
the game. There is no argu-
ing. You simply play like a
gentleman or a lady and
have lots of fun."
Mayfield and other
CPRW-11 Sailors are teach-
ing the game to YMCA
;members. "I'm excited to
help kids learn the fun-
damentals of the game
at an early age," said
ET1 Stephen Davis. At a
recent practice, there were
enough players for four
teams that played two 30-
minute games. While the
coaches brought knowledge
of the game, the young
players brought an abun-
dance of energy. That day's
outstanding players were
Mason Omesol and Rain


Brigman. Both showed
a quick understanding
of what distinguishes
Ultimate Frisbee from
other sports the principles
of fair play, sportsmanship
and the joy of play.
"No referees are required
because Ultimate Frisbee
matches (even at high-level
events) are self-officiated.
I volunteered to keep score
and time," said IT1 Patrick
Kean. "Doing this makes
me feel good because these
players have fun and also
get some serious exercise."
Registration is now under-
way at the YMCA with the
first games scheduled to
start Jan.19. Registration
forms are available online
at www.quickscores.com/
williamsdupontymca.
"We believe Ultimate
Frisbee offers a lot of excite-
ment and fun for young peo-
ple," said Courtney Lenart,
a YMCA youth sports vol-
unteer. "Even though we
keep score, we also keep
winning in perspective so
every child gets to play in
every game," she added.
Teams practice at times

FRCSE brings Christmas home


for 1 00 First Coast children


By Judy Hartman Alexander
FRCSE Public Affairs
Despite worsening economic times,
100 First Coast children will have
an extra special Christmas, thanks
to the generosity of employees at Fleet
Readiness Center Southeast (FRCSE) and
the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program.
FRCSE employees support the commu-
nity throughout the year with blood drives,
food drives and donations to Toys for Tots.
This year the Salvation Army Angel Tree
Program was added to the list. What start-
ed out as a ripple turned into a tidal wave
of donations, with more than 20 new bicy-
cles for children from toddlers to teens.
Toys, clothing, shoes, games 'and other
gifts you would find on a child's wish list
were purchased to make sure everybody's
sDecial Angels had a great Christmas.,
:'FRCSE employees initially adopted 20
Angels. Once the word got out, those angels
v(ere gone.in minutes, but the workforce
was hungry for more.


The phones started ringing and 60 more
were adopted. Staff members at Cecil
Commerce Centerwere also in the spirit of
giving and 20 more were quickly adopted,
totaling 100 Special Angels.
FRCSE Executive Officer Capt. Paul
Sohl knows first hand the great job the
workforce does everyday to support the
warfighters and the community.
"I'm amazed at the continuing generos-
ity of FRCSE's workforce in these tough
economic times it's heartwarming to see
it in action. The Salvation Army asked us
to help a group of very deserving children,
who would otherwise have no presents to
open on Christmas day. When we said,
'We'll do it!' the Pacesetters really stepped
up to' the plate. What a great group of
folks we have!"
Due to the overwhelming kindness of
FRCSE employees, the Salvation Army
sent one of its biggest trucks to pick-up the
gifts.

With each aircraft sporting the latest LANTIRN navi-
gation pod (terrain-following radar that enables pilots to
maneuver at low altitudes during daylight or at night),
VS-22 played a crucial intelligence role in Iraq operations
that included convoy support, improvised explosive device
detection and target development.
Even with their operational commitments, dedicated
VS-22 personnel found time for professional and personal
achievements. Twenty-five squadron members earned
their enlisted aviation- warfare specialist designations
and 19 Sailors were selected for advancement during the
September advancement cycle.
The achievements, friendships and memories that were
developed throughout the deployment will remain with
the Checkmates for life. 'The hard work and dedication
that VS-22 exhibited on deployment was instrumental to
the ongoing effort to stabilize Iraq.
VS-22 is the Navy's last S-3B squadron. Disestablish-
merit activities are scheduled for Jan. 28-30. Details can
be found at www.vs22.navy.mil.

can utilize for their situa-
tion."
"There. is a vast amount
of information and it can be
overwhelming. I think God
has placed me in this posi-
tion as a role model. I've
often asked myself, 'what
more can I handle?' I've had
the sick kids, was deployed,
continued to do my job and
worked on my education.
I've been through a lot of
experiences and learned
a lot so hopefully I can
help and encourage others
through the challenges I've
endured," Thinn said.
On the security manager
side of the house, Thinn is
responsible for ensuring
new personnel including
military members, govern-
ment employees and con-
tractors have their appro-
priate security clearances
and foreign national visi-
tors have the credentials
they need.
In her free time, Thinn
is working on a dual mas-
ter's degree in Information
Technology Management
and Management and
Leadership from Webster
University. She previ-
ously earned her bache-
lor's degree in Business
and Administration and
Professional Stuidies from
Boston University.
She also spends as much
time as possible with her
kids. "We just enjoy spend-
ing time together, wheth-
er it's watching a movie
or going on a family out-
ing like to Disney World or
roller skating," continued
Thinn.
Her biggest goal is pass-


ing the chief's test in
January, which means a lot
of studying. "I also have a
limited duty officer pack-
age in, so whichever comes
through first will determine
what happens next," she
added.
What advice does she
have for her junior peers?
"Know yourself. Know your
strengths and weaknesses
because you can use those
weaknesses and turn them
into your strengths," she
stated. "Also, know your
leadership and communi-
cate with them. I recently
had an issue regarding PT
policies. I was so stressed
out regarding the poli-
cies that I didn't commu-
nicate with my leadership
and once I did, I realized
I was stressed out for no
reason. And finally, know
your Sailors and policies.
By doing so you are able to
lead them better. We are
a diverse organization and
we can not lead everyone in
the same way."
Thinn also recognized sev-
eral individuals who have
guided her and inspired
her to succeed in her naval
career. "I thank retired
ITCM Nadine Green who I
worked with at JCSE. She
has been an inspiration to
me and always offered me
guidance and friendship.
She was one of the first peo-
ple I talked to when I made
Sailor of the Year. She
was so proud of me. I also
thank ITCM Gardner for
his advice and for always
looking out for his Sailors. I
am so appreciative for this
opportunity to serve NAS
Jax as the SOY. It's a great
opportunity for me to reach
out to my shipmates, offer


them the knowledge that I
have gained and to guide


them and help them," con-
cluded Thinn.

Healthful snacks to'


keep hunger at bay

By Chris Halagarda
Navy fitness; performance enhancement dietitian

S nacks have been a part of our lives since childhood.'
They were built into our schedules in preschool and:
elementary school and encouraged by moms, teach-
ers and coaches in high school.
So, where did the art of snacking go? Unfortunately,
nutritious snacks are lumped in with chips and dips and
targeted as the first things to be eliminated by weight loss'
programs.
Worse yet, many Americans today not only skip snacks,',
many skip entire meals, making one or two large meals',
the only nourishment for the day. These "meal-skipping""
individuals also tend to make poor food choices when they-
do find the time to eat. They then make spontaneous fast-'
food stops because they're so hungry they don't care what:
they eat.
With daily schedules too busy for sit-down meals, it's',
that much more important to find time for a healthy:
snack. When there's no time to cook a meal, snacking isx3
a great way to augment your nutrition. Here are some*;
simple snacks to beat hunger until you have time for a sit-''
down meal:
Natural peanut butter on whole-wheat bread or crack-:]
ers
Two ounces of nuts or seeds (small handful)
Piece of fruit
Natural turkey cold cuts with low-fat cheese
Hummus with vegetables, pita bread or whole-wheatd
pretzels 'y
Whole-wheat crackers with low-fat cheese
Cup of whole-grain cereal in a baggie
Two cups of popcorn A
Cup of low-fat milk .

Navy Band Southeast (NBSE) Brass Ensemble
gave a spectacular concert for the Chamber Music
Society of the Good Shepherd's fifth season.

formed works by Gabrieli, Haydn, and Bizet, to name
a few. After the intermission, the University of North
Florida Brass Ensemble, a 23-member ensemble conduct-
ed by Dr. Randy Tinnen, played a stunning performance
as well.
The concert culminated with several works performed
by the combined forces of the Navy and UNF musicians,
along with organist Greg Spiess. At the conclusion of the
final chord, members of both bands felt the admiration. of
the audience as they gave a rousing standing ovation.

Following a simulated ditch in open water, P3-C Orion crewmembers practice their egress
skills from the dunkerr" at NAS Jax Aviation Survival Training Center.



VP-30 mishap drill

VP-30 Aviation Safety OfficerA


SThen staff and stu-
dents arrived at
the "Pro's Nest"
Nov. 13 for their nor-
mal, early morning wave
of flights -they were
greeted by VP-30 Safety
Department personnel who
had other training in mind.
In order to exercise the
squadron pre-mishap plan,
VP-30 simulated an air-
craft crash that commenced
a base-wide mishap drill
incorporating several NAS
Jacksonville commands.
The scenario began with
a crew who was beginning
their pre-flight when they
were told to conduct an
emergency egress. The crew
of three pilots, two flight
engineers and one observ-
er were transported across
the airfield to the weap-
ons arming area where the
Pro6s Nest Safety Team had
pre-positioned an aircraft to
simulate the mishap crash,

Executive Officer Cmdr. Mike Doherty on the incident, as

site. When the command
duty officer was notified of
the simulated mishap, the
squadron's mishap plan
was set in motion initiat-
ing a day of training that
included the airfield crash
team, the medical clinic,
NAS Airfield Management,
the base operations duty
officer,' and Naval Hospital
Jacksonville. The NAS Fire
Department launched all
of its resources to respond


to the simulated incident.
Chief Thomas Lyszkowski
stated that the crash crew
enjoyed the drill and left
the scene with valuable les-
sons learned. He expressed
a willingness to conduct
drills on a more frequent
basis. "This helps sharp-
en our skills and make us
more familiar with aircraft
and, in the big picture, help
us to serve the squadrons
better in the event of a real


emergency."*
To enhance training
for personnel not directly
involved with the drill, VP-
30 cancelled the remain-
ing, flights scheduled for
the morning and mustered
all aircrew in the hangar.
"In the event of an actual
mishap, it would be real-
istic to cancel any remain-
ing events or recall aircraft
that are airborne," stated
Lt. Cmdr. Chris Kreier,
VP-30 safety officer. In
accordance with the mishap
plan, the squadron orga-
nized the emergency recla-


mation team and activated
the aviation mishap board.
VP-.30 Executive Officer
Cmdr. Mike Doherty led the
mishap board to the 'crash'
site where Lt. Scott Paul,
the VP-30 aviation safety
officer, conducted hands-
on training in securing and
documenting a mishap site.
Concurrent with the air-
craft crash scenario, an
11-man aircrew was taken
from their pre-flight brief
to the NAS Jacksonville
Aviation Survival Training
Center to undergo an
advanced water survival


scenario incorporating
-simulated nighttime condi-
tions.
"This training is invalu-
able should a P-3 Orion
be forced to ditch in open
water,"
said Kreier. "Overall we
learned a lot from this drill.
We were able to involve the
entire squadron and sev-
eral external commands to
increase the realism and
training value. Hopefully;
VP-30 will never have to
exercise the mishap plan,
but drills like this ensure
we are prepared."

The Navy announced the latest upgrade to Career
Management System Interactive Detailing (CMS/
ID) in a message released Dec. 9. CMS/ID is the
Internet-based career tool that allows enlisted Sailors
to research billets and apply for their next assignment
through their career counselor.
"It complements the current process of working directly
with the command career counselor (CCC) and allow the
Sailor to be an active partner in the orders negotiation pro-
cess. The CCC retains the ability to view and submit Sailors'
job applications, as well as continuing to guide and mentor
all Sailors throughout the orders negotiation process," said
Vice Adm. Mark E. Ferguson, chief of naval personnel.
An ongoing assessment and operational test of CMS/ID
features a self-service option that allows Sailors to apply for
jobs on CMS/ID directly, without the assistance of a com-
mand career counselor. The Navy is currently conducting
this test on a limited number of sea and shore platforms.
Currently all other applications on CMS/ID are submitted
through career counselors. A determination of when all
Sailors can apply online will be made after the assessment
is completed.
Among the upgrades announced in NAVADMIN 350/08:
CMS/ID will display a separate category for jobs sup-
porting global war on terrorism (GWOT) assignments.
GWOT assignments are distinguished in purple on the
homepage and within the jobs tab of CMS/ID, making it
easier for active-duty Sailors to view and apply for these
career-enhancing positions.
CMS/ID will link the Navy Enlisted Classification code
(NEC) to the NEC manual which displays NEC details,
course convening dates and prerequisites for awarding of
the NEC.
CMS/ID will feature a shipboard server option that
allows Sailors without Internet connectivity on partici-
pating ships to review and apply for billets. Although all
Reserve Sailors can currently apply online, this upgrade
will bring near parity between the Reserve component and
active component for a total force system. All Sailors should
review their professional data in CMS/ID to verify accuracy
and completeness. Pay specific attention to perform-to-serve
approval, exceptional family member status, security clear-
ance, evaluations and fitness reports and NECs earned.
Sailors should also ensure their contact information if cor-
rect in case their detailer has any questions for the member
when considering and reviewing applications.
CMS/ID continues to evolve as the replacement for the
Navy Job Advertising and Selection System (JASS) and
JASS Career Management System (JCMS).
"CMS/ID puts a tool in front of our Sailors. It allows the
Sailor to make the decision that will decide their next duty
assignnient. They need to combine this tpol and the advice
from their chain of command to continue their success
in the Navy," said Chief Navy Counselor (SW/AW) Ryan
Romes, CCC aboard USS Pickney (DDG-91). Pickney is one
of the select platforms testing the self-service application of
CMS/ID.
"Allowing Sailors to submit their own applications pro-
vides a proactive approach in empowering Sailors to man-
age their own careers. This functionality is part of the
"Sailor Choice" concept, which dates back to the inception
of JASS Career Management System (JCMS) in 2004 and
aligns with the CNP's vision of a transparent and seamless
detailing process for the Sailor," said Don Pellinen, CMS/ID
functional representative.
Sailors can access CMS/ID from the Navy Personnel
Command home page by selecting the link CMS Interactive
Detailing. For more information read NAVADMIN 35'0/08
