Navy's largest P-3




hangar takes flight

By Miriam Gallet
NAS Jax Public Affairs Officer iiK7


Hundreds of digni-
taries, contrac-
tors, military per-
sonnel and their families
joined Acting Secretary of
the Navy, The Honorable
BJ Penn, and NAS
Jacksonville Commanding
Officer Capt. Jack Scorby
Jr., for the May 5 ribbon-
cutting ceremony at NAS
Jacksonville Hangar 511
- the largest structure of
its kind in the Navy.
Penn said, "The opening
of this hangar brings us
one step closer to getting
our critical P-8 Poseidon
capability to the fleet. This
state-of-the-art facility
incorporates many environ-
mental enhancements that
will make operations here
safe for our Sailors as well
as the environment."
"As commanding officer
of the finest naval air sta-
tion in the world, I could
not be more proud of the
hard work that went into
making this day a reality.
Hangar 511 represents the
future of naval aviation -
and what a bright future it
is. The $127 million invest-
ed in this project will serve
the Navy's maritime patrol
and reconnaissance com-
munity for decades to come
and its innovative design
allows for simple modifica-
tions to accommodate the
new P-8 Poseidon slated to
replace the P-3 beginning
in 2012," Scorby said in his

welcoming remarks.
"This enormous 277,000-
sq.-ft. structure will be
the new home for five P-
3 Orion squadrons and
accommodate more than
1,600 personnel. This facil-
ity also rings in a new era
of construction design and
environmental sustainabil-
ity that provides our war-
fighters with the very best
in modern infrastructure
that includes being the first
'green' aircraft hangar in
the U.S. Navy. That means
Hangar 511 will achieve
the U.S. Green Building
Council's Leadership in
Energy and Environmental
Design or in simple terms
- it will be LEED certified,"
concluded Scorby.
Commander, Patrol and


Reconnaissance Wing
(CPRW) 11 Commanding
Officer Capt. Kyle Cozad
quoted author Victor Hugo
when he told the audience,
"There is nothing like a
dream to create the future."
He also noted the sym-
bolism of the new hangar's
number (511) that repre-
sents the upcoming merg-
er of CPRW-5 from NAS
Brunswick with CPRW-11
at NAS Jacksonville.
"Today's ceremony
brings Hangar 511 to life
and reminds us of how our
maritime patrol and recon-
naissance community has
evolved and adapted to
remain relevant for the past
50 years. Without question,
it's our people who have not
only dreamed, but taken


action to turn those dreams
into reality," added Cozad.
"Today's event is a sym-
bol of the bright future for
NAS Jacksonville," said
Rep. Ander Crenshaw (R-
Fla.) in a statement from
Washington DC. "This
hangar demonstrates the
Navy's commitment to
Northeast Florida and
makes Jacksonville the offi-
cial East Coast home of all
Navy maritime patrol air-
craft."
Jacksonville Mayor John
Peyton said, "Jacksonville is
proud to be the location of the
new P-3 hangar and the addi-
tional squadron members who
will be living and working in
our community.

New dunker ready for ditching Annual NAS Jacksonville
By Clark Pierce o Safety Rodeo is May 12
Editor W S -\ .* .~ I-c */ -~^ /*


After more than five months of
facility remodeling, equipment
installation and testing, NAS
Jacksonville Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. cut the ribbon
on the next-generation underwater
egress trainer April 28 at Aviation
Survival Training Center (ASTC)
Jacksonville.
Scorby then joined ASTC Director
Cmdr. Susan Jay for the inaugural
plunge of the 9D6 Modular Egress
Training System (METS) that simu-
lates an aircraft ditching in a body
of water and sinking upside-down. It
allows aircrew to practice escaping
from a submerged fuselage.
A dripping wet Scorby declared,
"I'm honored that these professionals
at ASTC invited me for the inaugu-
ral dunk in the 9D6 METS. Cmdr.
Jay and her staff have been prepar-
ing for this day since last December.
I've ditched in a number of dunkers

previous trainer. While no pilot or

ENERGY FACTOIDS


By Cliff Plante
Public Works Department


If you purchase a gas oven or
range, look for one with an auto-
matic (electronic) ignition system
instead of pilot lights. It reduces gas
consumption up to 41 percent in the
oven and 53 percent on the top burn-
ers.
If you have a stove with a pilot
light, make sure the pilot light is
burning efficiently with a blue flame.
A yellowish flame indicates an adjust-
ment is required.
Keep range-top burners and
reflectors clean. They will reflect the
heat better, and you will save energy.
Use a kettle or a covered pan
when boiling water and it will come to
a boil faster and use less energy than
if using an uncovered pan.
Regularly defrost refrigerators
and freezers that are not frost-free.
Frost buildup increases the amount
of energy needed to operate the appli-
ance. Never allow frost to build up
more than one-quarter of an inch
thick.
When cooking on the stove top,
match the size of the pan to the heat-
ing element. More heat will get to the
pan and less will be lost to the sur-
rounding air.
When operating a clothes dryer,
ooo


keep the lint screen clean. Remove
lint after each load. Lint impedes the
flow of air in the dryer, which makes
your clothes take longer to dry and
uses more energy.
If your clothes dryer has an auto-
matic dry cycle, use it. Over-drying
merely wastes energy.
Try to use energy intensive appli-
ances such as dishwashers, clothes
washers/dryers and electric ovens
in the early morning or late eve-
ning hours to help reduce peak load

usage.
Don't keep your refrigerator or
freezer too cold. Recommended tem-
peratures: 38-40 degrees F for the
fresh food compartment of the refrig-
erator; 5 degrees F for freezer section.
(If you have a separate freezer for
long-term storage, it should be kept
at zero degrees F.)
When replacing appliances,
always look for the ENERGY STAR
Label. They will conserve more ener-
gy over their lifetime.

HEY MONEYCHIC!

Hey MoneyChic!
Every year I tell myself that I'm going to create an
emergency fund. I'd really like to have $2,000 saved by
next year this time. The problem is, I've resolved to do this
before, but have yet to make this a reality. I don't want to
let another year slip by with nothing to show for it.
MoneyChic says: I think this is the year for you and
your savings account. I say this because verbalizing your
goals makes you much more likely to actually accomplish
them.
If you need even more of a nudge, check out the Web
site stickk.com. This is where you can post your goals
and gain encouragement with an audience watching. It's a
good idea, because you have to write down your exact goal,
along withthe deadline for accomplishing it.
The next step I'd recommend is to determine how much
money you need to set aside each month to get there.
You mentioned $2,000 by next year at this time. To
achieve this, you need to set aside $166.67 each month.
Better yet, set up an automatic transfer from your check-
ing to your savings account on payday. This way it hap-
pens automatically and you are paying yourself first.
Finally, offer yourself an incentive. Decide how you will
reward yourself when you make your goal.
On the other hand, give yourself a consequence if you
fail to meet your goal. Good luck.

ENJOY HARMONIES


OF NATURE WITHOUT


LEAVING THE BASE


By MCSA Cristina Gabaldon
Staff Writer
sailors and families at NAS Jax are
fortunate to be on a station that's
surrounded by so much natural
beauty. If you enjoy getting outdoors and
taking nature walks, you don't even have
to leave the base to do some interesting
sightseeing of wild creatures.
"Our base is special in that you can study
alligators, eagles, rabbits, squirrels, mana-
tees, deer, turtles, butterflies and many
other species," said Christine Bauer, natu-
ral resources manager for the NAS Jax
Environmental Department.
"There are several places throughout the
base where people can go out and enjoy
walking or jogging," explained Bauer.
"With descriptive signs everywhere, you
can research the wildlife and plants while
you walk these trails."
NAS Jax nature walks include the
Palmetto Cove Nature Trail with two
entrances -one on Perimeter Road and
one on Child Street near Naval Hospital
Jacksonville. The Mulberry Cove Nature
Walk is across Mustin St. from Mulligan's.
Next to the Navy Jax Yacht Club is the
Black Point 'Watchable' Wildlife Area. This
is where the interpretive center is located
and groups can set up tours to learn more
about snakes, birds, fish and other wildlife
in the area.
"Black Point is a nice place you can go
to watch and learn about wildlife. There is
a butterfly garden that's a great place to
relax and meditate about our opportunities
to interact with nature," said Bauer.
Just across from the main gate is Tillie
K. Fowler Regional Park. It is owned by


Binoculars are available to see out onto the water at the NAS Jax Black Point Watchable
Wildlife Area. Black Point is a place where visitors can walk around and watch for birds,
squirrels and other creatures. In the back of the park, walkers can find a deck overlooking the
water and kiosks with information about the area.

Operation Prepare

urges disaster-readiness,

despite tough economy

From CNIC Public Affairs
Everyone is concerned about the
economy. Most of us have seen our
assets shrink and are trying to be
thrifty. Unfortunately, natural and man-
made disasters don't wait for good times.
The positive news is that keeping your-
self and your family ready for emergencies
doesn't take a lot of time or money. Since
2007, the Operation Prepare campaign has
encouraged personnel and their families
to take three simple steps to disaster pre-
paredness: (1) be informed; (2) have a plan;
and (3) make a kit.
The free part
Getting informed takes only a little time.
You can probably do it online at your con-
venience. First, identify the hazards most
likely to affect you and your family. Is your
area subject to extreme weather events
like hurricanes, tornadoes or thunder-
storms? Is it flood-prone? Are hazardous
materials stored nearby? Is a new strain of
flu virus making news? Your Installation
Emergency Management Program and
other local sources can help identify area
hazards, warning systems and the recom-
mended actions.
It is also essential-and free-to make
plans as a family for reacting to various
emergencies. Discuss where your children
will go if they are in school at the time of
the emergency, and make sure they under-
stand where you intend to be. Take into
account any members of your family with
special needs and what you will do with
pets.
An important part of this plan is com-
munications to maintain contact if you're
separated. Make a wallet card with all the
phone numbers and information every fam-
ily member may need, including an in-case-
of-emergency name and number of local
and out-of-state contacts. Make sure every-
one has a copy, and file a copy with the
command ombudsman and the command.
Economical emergency supply kits
Make an emergency supply kit to keep
at home, and be sure every family member
knows where it is. You can keep your kit
in one or two portable containers and have

them ready to go if you suddenly have to
take shelter or evacuate. Keeping smaller,
specialized kits at work and in your car is
also a great idea.
In building your emergency kits, con-
sider area hazards and the special needs
of family members and pets. In addition to
basics like a first aid kit, personal sanita-
tion supplies, dust masks, a battery-power
or hand-crank radio, flashlight, extra bat-
teries, maps, and your family communica-
tions plan include enough nonperishable
food and at least one gallon of water per
person per day for at least three days.
Preassembled kits are available at dis-
count stores for around $100, but you can
probably make one for considerably less.
You most likely already have many of the
items around the house.
Also, you don't have to get everything at
once -just add items each week until you
have enough. Rethink your family needs
every year, and refresh food and water sup-
plies periodically. Who can't afford added
family security at that cost?

awards first ARRA projects


NAS Jacksonville and

Naval Weapons Station

Charleston first on the list

By Sue Brink
NAVFAC Southeast PAO

N aval Facilities Engineering Com-
mand (NAVFAC) Southeast
awarded two contracts last week
as part of the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for work at two
installations in the Southeast.
The first award of $556,781 was issued
April 22 to Rogers Lovelock & Fritz Inc.
of Winter Park, Fla. The contract pro-
vides design for construction of several
departmental moves within Naval Hospital
Jacksonville, along with a new entrance to
the hospital, new patient drop-off area,
relocation of the flag pole, eight new pri-
vate ICU rooms on 3 West, space for 19
new recovery beds on 3 East and the con-
version of three operating rooms into
endoscopy suites on 3 South.
"These enhancements are in addition
to the $35.8 million construction project
currently underway at the hospital," said
Capt. Bruce Gillingham, Naval Hospital
Jacksonville commanding officer.
"They are another example of our com-
mitment to provide modern facilities and


high quality, patient-centered care to our
active duty and retired military heroes and
their families."
The second award was to Barlovento,
LLC (small business) of Dothan, Ala. April
23 for $964,900 to paint 750 suites in five
Bachelor Enlisted Quarters at the Naval
Nuclear Power Training Command, Naval
Weapons Station Charleston, S.C.
ARRA projects are intended to modernize
Navy and Marine Corps shore infrastruc-
ture, enhance America's energy indepen-
dence and sustain a robust Maritime Force
for decades.
The two contracts awarded meet the
ARRA goals to provide much-needed
improvements to Navy and Marine Corps
installations, hospitals or barracks and
will improve the quality of life for service
members and veterans in the community.

VP-8: Liedman assumes command from Wiese


By Lt.j.g. Tom Sculthorpe
VP-8 Public Affairs Officer

In a May 6 ceremony

Eric Wiese as command-
ing officer of the VP-8
"Fighting Tigers."
Capt. James Hoke,

Liedman, a native of
Kimball, Minn., gradu-
ated with distinction from
the U. S. Naval Academy
in 1991 with a Bachelor of
Science degree in systems
engineering. He had this
to say as he took command
of the Fighting Tigers, "I
am honored to assume com-


Cmdr. Eric Wiese
mand of a squadron that
has achieved a legacy of
operational excellence
over the course of its 67-
year history. The men and
women of VP-8 are grateful
for the superb leadership
that Skipper Wiese provid-
ed over the past year as we
prepared for and executed
this deployment. Our chal-
lenge now is to sustain the
superb performance that
we established during the
first five months of this


Cmdr. Sean Liedman
deployment and carry
that momentum through
successful completion of our
homeport change to NAS
Jacksonville, Fla."
Wiese was born at Naval
Station Sanford, Fla., but
calls East Greenwich, R.I.
home. He graduated from
the U.S. Naval Academy
in 1990 with a Bachelor
of Science degree in histo-
ry. Prior to departing the
command, he said, "What
I will miss the most and


will remember most clearly
is the phenomenal sense
of mission and teamwork
displayed by the Fighting
Tigers over the last two
years. Day in and day out,
the officers, chiefs, and
Sailors of VP-8 work hard
and work purposefully
knowing that what they do
every day makes a differ-
ence. I once told Sailors at
an awards quarters that
individual medals and
achievements are nice, but
unit awards and recogni-
tion from our superiors for
squadron performance are
what make me proud to
be in the world's greatest
Navy. Finish strong!"

CNATTU rolls up




sleeves to host ASBP
By AEC Raymond Derrick
CNATTU Public Affairs Officer


T he Armed Services Blood
Program (ASBP) team from the
Eisenhower Army Medical Center
of Fort Gordon, Ga. set up shop at NAS
Jacksonville April 30 to conduct a blood
drive.
The Center for Naval Aviation Technical
Training Unit (CNATTU) Jacksonville
hosted the event, with their Sailors roll-
ing up their sleeves along with other com-
mands to donate 74 units of blood to the
ASBP.
The ASBP travels to military bases
throughout the Southeast collecting blood
donations used solely to treat military
members. The majority of the donations go
to members serving overseas in locations
like Iraq and Afghanistan.
"Finding a usable donor can be tough
because, unfortunately, there are 29 ways
to be turned away from donating," said
Staff Sgt. Nicholas Laye, who screens vol-
unteer donors.
"The donation process starts with Sailors
filling out personal information forms and
medical history. Factors such as low red
blood cell count, travel to known malaria

areas, and certain medications can dis-
qualify a donor,"
By making the choice to donate blood,
one person could help to save three lives
with a single donation. The blood can be
separated into three parts platelets, plas-
ma, and red blood cells. Platelets can be
stored for only five days, so the need for
platelet donations is vast and continuous.
"The Armed Services Blood Program
plays a key role in providing quality blood
products for all active duty personnel and
their families through a joint operation
among the Army, Navy, Marine Corps
and Air Force. These components work-
ing together to collect, process, store, dis-

tribute and transfuse blood worldwide in
a moments notice," said Erin Hawkins,
ASBP public affairs specialist.
The Fort Gordon ASBP team is manned
by activated Army Reserve Soldiers who
spend many days on the road, setting up,
collecting and processing donations. The
team collected 14,500 units of blood in 2008
for the Department of Defense.
"Over half of what we collect goes direct-
ly to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The remainder serves military treatment
facilities," said Hawkins.
"I have been with the team since 2001
and words cannot describe how good it
feels knowing my job gives a wounded sol-
dier in need of blood a chance to live."


"These soldiers work extremely hard to
support our brothers and sisters in every
branch of the military and are truly dedi-
cated to the team's mission no matter how
many days or long hours we work. The
team puts in seventy plus hours in a typi-
cal week between setting up, collecting
and traveling," said 1st Sgt. Brooks, Fort
Gordon ASBP team lead.
A thank-you goes out to AT1 Ricardo
Baez and AWV1 Jeffery Laban for coordi-
nating with the ASBP to make the drive
possible.

VP-30 celebrates retention excellence
By NCC(AW/SW) I -
John Mack i


The VP-30 "Pro's
Nest" raised a yellow
pennant outside its
quarterdeck April 21 to sig-
nify its most recent award
from Commander, U.S.
Fleet Forces Command
(CFFC) for command reten-
tion excellence.
"The 2008 CFFC
Retention Excellence Award
pennant will be hoisted
with pride," said VP-30
Commanding Officer Capt.
Richard Fite. "Outstanding
job! This is a great way
to show all who enter our
quarterdeck the esprit de
corps we enjoy at VP-30,
the love we have for our
country and the pride we
feel for this most significant
achievement," he said.
Command Master Chief
Charles Blackston said,
"The retention numbers at
VP-30 have always been
excellent. So when our
Command Career Counselor
NCC(AW/SW) John Mack
approached me with the
idea of honoring the com-
mand retention team's
accomplishment for 2008, I
was all in favor of it."

shore commands and other
units and organizations for
achieving high levels of per-
sonnel retention persuad-
ing sailors to reenlist in the
Navy at the end of their
first, second, and subse-
quent terms of enlistment.
"VP-30 is the largest
squadron in naval aviation,
and raising the retention
pennant is a testament to
the hard work and dedica-
tion of Sailors up and down
the chain of command in
caring for the individual
careers of more than 1,000
shipmates. It also serves as
a reminder of each of those
Sailors' commitment to the
squadron, the Navy and the


country," said Blackston.
A command qualifies for
the annual retention excel-
lence award if it wins the
honor roll for two or more
quarters during the fiscal
year, or has met or exceed-
ed the reenlistment targets
in aggregate over the fiscal
year. The annual reenlist-
ment benchmarks are as
follows:
Zone A (Less than 6
years service): 48 percent
Zone B (6 or more, but less
than 10 years): 58 percent
Zone C (10 or more, but less
than 14 years): 82 percent
Zone A Attrition (using
cross-section attrition): 6.2
percent or less.

in every aspect of health

Autism demonstration project

From Navy Medicine East Public Affairs
One year ago, the Department of Defense and
TRICARE, the military health care benefit,
embarked on a demonstration project for military
dependents diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders
(ASD).
Some 288 TRICARE beneficiaries are now receiving
services through this program. In the last quarter of 2008
alone, more than 10,000 hours of educational intervention
services were provided. Services are geared to improving
scholastic achievement and providing life skills training
(language, communication, self help, activities of daily liv-
ing, etc.)
Access to Autism Services Demonstration allows active
duty members and their families reimbursement for edu-
cational intervention services, such as Applied Behavior
Analysis (ABA), delivered by paraprofessional providers.
ABA is a systematized process of collecting data on a
child's behaviors and using a variety of behavioral condi-
tioning techniques to teach and reinforce desired behaviors
while extinguishing harmful or undesired behaviors. In
order to participate in the demonstration project, children
must be registered in TRICARE Extended Care Health
Option (ECHO) and the Exceptional Family Member
Program provided by the sponsor's branch of service. ASD
conditions covered by the demonstration are: Autistic
Disorder (AD), Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not
Otherwise Specified (PDDNOS), Asperger's Disorder (AS),
and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder (CDD). Prior
authorization is required for all services under the ECHO
program, including services provided under the Autism
demonstration.
The provider class that delivers one-on-one technical
services to children has yet to be defined. ABA tutors will
increasingly be asked to provide services to the many chil-
dren being diagnosed with ASD.
TRICARE continues to build a referral network of ABA
providers who agree to be reimbursed for TRICARE-eli-
gible beneficiaries referred for care.
In the Naval Hospital Jacksonville Florida/Georgia
beneficiary area, HealthNet Federal Services adminis-
ters the TRICARE ECHO program as well as the Autism
Demonstration Project.
Parents may contact the Naval Hospital Jacksonville
Health Benefits Office at (904) 542-9164 for more informa-
tion. Additional information on the Autism Demonstration
Project, visit the TRICARE blog at http://www.health.

Famous last words


By Lt. Joanna Mastny
Judge Advocate General Corps


Sf it doesn't work out, I'll just
get an annulment."
Those are famous last words
spoken by many service members just
before rushing into marriage. Some
service members and civilians alike,
seem to think that an annulment is
a simple way to get out of a marriage
that hasn't lasted very long. After all,
Britney Spears and that first guy she
married in Vegas did it.
Although grounds for annulments
vary by state, this article examines
the seven general grounds for annul-
ment recognized in Texas, in order
to demonstrate the limited situations
in which annulments apply (if you
are outside of Texas, consult with a
licensed attorney in your state). If
the facts surrounding your mar-
riage fit one of the categories listed
below, you can petition (ask) a court
to annul your marriage. If you don't
meet any of these guidelines, then you
must petition the court for a divorce
instead.
Under-age marriage If a per-
son between the ages of 16 and 18
gets married without the consent of
their parent, the parent may ask the
court to annul the child's marriage.
Annulment in this situation is not
automatic. The court will look at all of
the circumstances to decide whether
an annulment is best for the child.
Marriage while under the influence
of alcohol or narcotics A person
who gets married while under the
influence of alcohol or narcotics may
ask the court for an annulment. This
can only happen if the person ask-
ing for the annulment did not volun-
tarily live with (and/or have sexual
relations with) their spouse after the
effects of the alcohol or drugs wore
off. The party seeking the annulment
must prove to the court that he or she
was so intoxicated that they did not


Photos.com
understand their actions at the time
of the marriage.
Impotency A marriage can be
annulled if either spouse was per-
manently impotent at the time the
marriage occurred, and the other
spouse didn't know about it. Only
the non-impotent spouse can request
an annulment and only if they did
not voluntarily live with their spouse
after learning of the impotency.
Marriage due to fraud, duress or
force A person who enters into
marriage due to fraud, duress or
force of the other spouse may seek
to have the marriage annulled. Do
not look at this as a "catch all" cat-
egory for annulment. A court will not
grant an annulment because one per-
son lied about something along the
lines of how much money they make.
However, if a person lies about their
identity or forces the other person
into marriage at gunpoint an annul-
ment could be granted.
Marriage while mentally incompe-
tent If the mentally incompetent


A-OK student reward program

By Kristine Sturkie
NEXCOM PAO
The Navy Exchange (NEX) wants to help its cus-
tomers pay for their children's college education
through its A-OK Student Reward Program. Four
times per school year, four students will be the recipients
of either a $5,000, $3,000 $2,000 or $1,000 U.S. savings
bond, denominations at maturity. The next drawing will
be held at the end of May 2009.
Any eligible full-time student who has a B grade point
average or better, as determined by their school system,
may enter the drawing. Eligible students include depen-
dent children of active duty military members, reservists
and military retirees enrolled in first through 12th grade.
Dependent children without an individual Dependent
Identification Card must be accompanied by their sponsor
to submit their entry. Each student may enter only once
each grading period and must re-enter with each qualify-
ing report card.
To enter the drawing, stop by any NEX with a current
report card and have a NEX associate verify the minimum
grade average. Then fill out an entry card and obtain an
A-OK ID, which entitles the student to discount coupons
for NEX products and services.
The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) has
been offering students a chance to win a savings bond
through its A-OK Student Reward Program. Since the
program began in 1998, NEXCOM has awarded $460,000
in savings bonds to 152 students, thanks to the help of its
generous vendor partners.


person (or their legal representative)
asks for the annulment, it can only be
granted if the person didn't voluntari-
ly live with their spouse after regain-
ing mental competency. If the men-
tally competent person requests the
annulment, it can only be granted if
that person didn't know their spouse
was mentally incompetent at the time
of the marriage and did not voluntari-
ly live with their spouse after learn-
ing of the mental incompetence.
Concealed divorce In the state
of Texas, a person who gets divorced
may not remarry within 30 days of
their divorce date. If they do remarry
within those 30 days, the new spouse
may seek an annulment. The annul-
ment may only be granted if the new
spouse did not know of the recent
divorce at the time of the marriage,
and did not voluntarily live with their
spouse after learning of the recent
divorce.
Marriage within 72 hours of receiv-
ing the marriage license Texas law
requires that a couple apply for and
receive a marriage license at least 72
hours before the marriage ceremony
takes place. If a couple gets married
during the 72-hour waiting period,
either member of the couple may ask
to have the marriage annulled. Note
that this 72-hour waiting period does
not apply to active duty service mem-
bers. Texas law permits a person on
active duty to get married as soon
as the marriage license is received.
Remember that the categories for
annulment listed above are for the
State of Texas only, and your state
may have more, less or different qual-
ifications for annulment.

New alcohol awareness Web resource


From TRICARE
Management Activity


A pril is Alcohol Aware-
ness Month and
TRICARE is com-
mitted to creating a "buzz"
about the harmful effects
of alcohol abuse. A new
TRICARE Web page at
http://www.tricare. mil/alco-
holawareness sheds light
on alcohol abuse to promote
responsible drinking.
Heavy alcohol consump-
tion is a significant prob-
lem in the military that
affects not just uniformed
service members but also
their families. The 2005
Department of Defense
(DoD) Health Related
Behaviors survey reports
young men in each service
branch had significantly
higher rates of heavy drink-
ing than their civilian coun-
terparts.
Of young men in all mili-
tary branches, 32.2 percent
engaged in heavy drinking,
compared with 17.8 percent
of civilian men. The survey
also reports that service
members often use alcohol
to cope with stress, bore-
dom, loneliness and the lack
of other recreational activi-
ties.
Similar factors may
encourage their family
members to abuse alcohol,
too. Underage alcohol use
by military personnel and
children of service members
is also an issue of major con-
cern.
The new Web page serves
as a starting place for ben-
eficiaries to find informa-
tion, links and news about
alcohol, underage drinking,
alcoholism and substance
abuse. Another excellent


-4 fI
/..
if\


resource that coincides with
Alcohol Awareness Month is
the DoD-funded site, http://
www.thatguy.com, which
highlights the social conse-
quences of binge drinking.
Did You Know?
In the United States, a
standard drink is one that
contains 0.6 ounces (13.7
grams or 1.2 tablespoons) of
pure alcohol. Generally this


amount of pure alcohol is
found in:
S1.5 ounces or a "shot" of
80-proof distilled spirits or
liquor
5 ounces of wine
8 ounces of malt liquor
12 ounces of beer
According to the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention, alcohol is linked
to:
79,000 deaths per year
5,000 deaths of people
under age 21
Hundreds of injuries
from falls, burns and drown-
ings

Fashion show celebrates patients'


successes after weight-loss surgery


By Marsha Childs
NH Jax Public Affairs


When asked why he
had weight-loss
surgery to shed
his excess body fat, Frank
Hyde, 52, said it was sim-
ple, "I was going to die."
Hyde and 11 other
patients who under-
went gastric bypass sur-
gery at Naval Hospital
Jacksonville, celebrated
their weight loss successes
with family, friends and
staff at a March 27 fashion
show. The group lost a com-
bined total weight of 1,375
pounds.
Gastric bypass surgery
has been practiced for
nearly 50 years and is the
most commonly performed
weight-loss surgery in the
United States. It reduces
the size of the stomach
by creating a small pouch
using a stapling device. The
small pouch is then con-
nected to the small intes-
tine bypassing the larger
portion of the stomach.
Patients eat less and feel
satisfied with smaller por-
tions.
Hyde has shed 170 pounds
since his gastric bypass sur-
gery in March 2006. Prior
to surgery, he weighed 370
pounds, suffered from Type
2 diabetes, high blood pres-
sure and gastric reflux. He
wore pant size 57 and was
unable to work.
"I was smoking cigarettes.
I was fat. I would not get
up in the morning," he said.
His three-month old grand-
daughter, Rory, was the
main reason he pursued
treatment.
"I wanted to watch her go
down the church aisle," he
recalled.
Hyde no longer needs
insulin and has drastically
reduced his other medi-
cations. He owns his own
yard work business and
loves life. He went from just
existing, to an active life-
style of canoeing, camping,
bicycling and kickboxing.
"It's a whole different
world," Hyde said.
Another satisfied patient
is Patrick Conley, 53, who
had his surgery in October
2009. He has lost 84
pounds and no longer has
to inject himself with insu-
lin five times a day.
"I finally got tired of stick-
ing myself with a needle. I
was a pincushion," he said.
Today he is off all of his
prescribed medications.
Some of the biggest benefits
are not visible. The surgery
has given Conley more con-
fidence.


"People look at me dif-
ferently, and I look at me
differently," he explained.
"You have more self-respect.
They don't pity you, they
treat you like a human."
Bariatric Nurse Specialist
Noemi Massari advises
those who are interested
in the program to do their
research on the Web. Good
candidates for bariatric
surgery are patients with
excessive body fat who have
been unable to achieve sig-
nificant weight loss through
diet and exercise alone.
"We are very happy with
the type of patients we have
here," said Massari. "The
outcomes have been excel-
lent."
Candidates for the pro-
gram are assessed using
their body mass index (BMI)
calculated using a person's
weight in kilograms divided
by their height in meters
squared.
To be eligible for the pro-
gram, a patient must have a
BMI of 35 and above, or 30
if they have other weight-
related medical issues.
Obesity is defined as a BMI
of 30 and above, according
to the National Institutes of
Health.
These individuals usually
suffer from other weight-
related medical conditions.
There are strict medical,
nutritional, physical and
behavioral aspects of pur-
suing the treatment.
Patients accepted in the
program must attend the
Gastric Bypass Support
Group meetings and agree
to lose 25 pounds before the
surgery can be scheduled.
Navy Surgeon Cmdr.
Eugene Concepcion is proud
of these highly motivated
patients. The fashion show
gives not only the patients,
but also the surgical team,
an opportunity to reflect on
their accomplishments.
Concepcion credits
Massari for her commit-
ment to the patients. "She
is the glue to the program.
My office is next to hers
and I hear the conversa-
tions, the words of encour-
agement and sometimes the
hard tough love," he said.
Massari admits she is
part cheerleader, part
counselor, part Mom. "I'm
always calling them," she
said. "Are you doing this?
Are you doing that?"
Patients must make
a commitment to them-
selves when starting the
five-month pathway. They
must diet and exercise and
continually follow up with a
multidisciplinary team.
"Behavior modification


is the key," Massari said.
"Surgery is just a tool."
Capt. Bruce Gillingham,
the hospital's commanding
officer, congratulated the
patients for their commit-
ment. He also recognized
the outstanding work of
the hospital's Surgery
Department staff, and in
particular the bariatric sur-
geons.
"Our surgeons are being
continuously deployed and
despite this, they have com-
mitted to this program and
its future successes," he
said.
Weight-loss surgery is life
changing. It is not a medi-
cal cure and is intended
for those who are morbid-
ly obese and have weight-
related health problems.

vider or visit the American

HANGAR:

New home for

From Page 1

Currently, more than
250,000 Jacksonville resi-
dents are active duty mili-
tary, in addition to the more
than 150,000 veterans who
call Jacksonville home.
Our city enjoys a true part-
nership with the U.S. mili-
tary and we are committed
to meeting their needs."The
new hangar is a result of the
2005 Base Realignment and
Closure Committee (BRAC)
that ordered the closure of
NAS Brunswick, Maine. On
April 13, 2007 officials broke
ground for the $127 million
project designed to accommo-
date approximately 37 P-3C
Orion aircraft. At a length
of 333 yards, the structure
is longer than three football
fields placed end to end.
Also participating in
the event were: City of
Jacksonville Mayor John
Peyton; Capt. Douglas
Morton, commanding officer,
Naval Facilities En-gineering
Command South-east; Cmdr.
John Coray, chief of staff,

so all Americans can live their lives in free-
dom," said EOC Michael Falk, master of
ceremonies for the event.
"It has been more than 66 years since the
first Seabee from NMCB-14 gave his life
for his country, but only five years since
the most recent loss of our comrades in
arms. We cherish their memories and we
share that solemn pride in each of these
shipmates," stated Hinson in his memorial
address.
The guest speaker was Capt. Donald
Hedrick, commander, Third Naval
Construction Regiment.
Hedrick said that the day's purpose was
to honor and pay respect to the Seabees
who have made the ultimate sacrifice and
to those who carry the memories of them.
"I wish to offer my condolences and my
utmost respect to the families of our fallen.
Let us not forget that you, too, have given
tremendous sacrifices. Your loved ones'
memories will always be in your thoughts,
as they are in ours, to inspire our creed
and esprit de corps," he said.
Hedrick also acknowledged the men
and women of NMCB-23 and NMCB-24
who were at NAS Jax competing in the
third annual Naval Construction Regiment
Rodeo, April 29 May 3. The competition
challenges junior enlisted Seabees in mili-
tary and technical proficiency.
Also attending the event was Rear Adm.
Scott Weikert, deputy commander, 1st
Naval Construction Division, who assisted
Hedrick and Hinson in laying a wreath in
memory of their fallen comrades.
After the memorial service, a ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony was held to open the NMCB-
14 Heritage Center and honor the battalion
as the Atlantic Fleet Best of Type, Battle

"E" Battalion. The new center was funded
and constructed by current and former
members of NMCB-14.
"We will meet here again next year
to remember our shipmates once more.
We pay tribute to all of the Seabees who
have served honorably in NMCB-14 with
the opening of our historical exhibit,"
exclaimed Hinson as he and retired Navy
Capt. J.T. Larson, a former NMCB-14 com-
manding officer, cut the ribbon.
Weikert was honored as the first guest
to enter the exhibit and sign the guest
book. He was followed by former command-
ing officers and command master chiefs of
NMCB-14, families of the fallen, Purple
Heart recipients and other guests.
The heritage center displays photo-

crew in the cabin depend-
ing on the platform."
ASTC Division Chief
HMC Todd Mays added,
"It's a vastly different dunk-
er that spins faster when
you hit the water. The seat
belts, bulkheads, windows
and hatches give students
a more realistic platform
environment whether it's
for a Seahawk helicopter or
a P-3 Orion aircraft."
From the NAWSTI point
of view, HM1 Grayson
Taylor said the new dunk-
er is larger, less cramped
and more like the interior
of an aircraft. "However,
that means there's more
room for students to get
lost in so getting safely
to a primary or secondary
exit requires proper train-
ing. Though we instruct
students in certain seats to
use specific exits there's
no such thing as a wrong
exit as long as you success-
fully egress the aircraft and
reach the surface," said
Taylor.
Site Manager Chris
Amicarelle leads the civil-
ian team that operates and
maintains the 9D6 METS.
"This new crane is con-
trolled by a simple, wire-
less remote that allows
the operator to stand with
the NAWSTI dive supervi-
sor for direct communica-
tion and optimal safety,"
explained Amicarelle.
"If someone submerged in
the pool is having trouble
or if we lose power during
a dunk, we can engage the
emergency retract system

that's kind of an honor in

Many people enjoy a steaming cup
of coffee, a soothing cup of tea or
an ice-cold cola each day. Yet for
some people, the amount of caffeine con-
sumed in these products can lead to caf-
feine sensitivity or even addiction.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration
classifies caffeine as safe. While its con-
sumption in moderation generally has no
effect on most people, it can have many
effects on the body. It's a stimulant and
it speeds up your central nervous system,
giving you a temporary energy boost and
making you feel more alert.
However, it also increases your heart
rate, raises your blood pressure and acts
as a diuretic, causing dehydration and fre-
quent urination.
For those who are sensitive to caffeine,
as little as one caffeinated beverage or
food can cause such symptoms as excite-
ment, irritability, jitteriness and tension.
Consuming excess amounts of caffeine
can cause abnormal heart rhythms, anxi-
ety, headaches, insomnia, stomach upset,
restlessness and tremors. People who are
smaller than average size, under stress or
who do not consume caffeinated foods and
beverages regularly may experience these
negative side effects more quickly than
those who are larger than average, more
relaxed or indulge in caffeinated beverages
regularly.
Other factors that impact your response
to caffeine include your age, whether or
not you smoke, your use of other medica-
tions or supplements, if you have certain
health conditions (e.g., high blood pressure,
anxiety disorders) or if you are pregnant or
nursing.
Although consuming as many as 32 ounc-
es of a caffeinated beverage per day will


not negatively affect most people, it could
lead to addiction. Like any other drug, if
you quit caffeine suddenly, you may experi-
ence symptoms of withdrawal like fatigue,
headaches, mood swings or nervousness.
If you're thinking about reducing your
caffeine intake, you may want to consider
these tips:
Drink water when you're thirsty.
Order a smaller cup of coffee, tea or
soda, or drink one less caffeinated bever-
age per day.
Avoid caffeinated energy drinks.
Choose non-caffeinated herbal teas
instead.
Read over-the-counter medication
labels and avoid those that contain caf-
feine.
To learn more about caffeine, visit www.
nlm.nih.gov, a service of the U.S. National
Library of Medicine and the National
Institutes of Health.


JAX AIR NEWS, NASJACKSONVILLE, Thursday, May 7, 2009 17

Pre-embed surprising beginning


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor

y the time you read this column
I will be on an airplane in route
to meet the USNS Comfort on the
first of three upcoming embed-blogger
opportunities I have this year. As a mili-
tary spouse I am eager to view, blog and
broadcast the mission of these opportuni-
ties from a spouse's perspective.
I thought my 'experience' would begin
when I actually set foot on the Comfort.
I was shocked to realize as my departure
day drew near that my 'experience' began
long before my first bag was packed.
The day my passport arrived in the mail
other things seemed to arrive with it. I was
so excited when it arrived, it was the one
thing that made these embeds seem real.
Imagine my surprise when that excitement
gave way to other emotions.
Up till now I have focused on researching
the ship, the mission, international travel,
equipment and other 'exciting' things in
anticipation. My wonderful mother-in-law
is going to keep our 10-month-old Cocker
Spaniel during my trip. She loves my
puppy and Strydor loves her. She half jok-
ing/half serious mentioned, "You know,
I may not give him back." At the time I
laughed, but as I held my passport, this
fleeting thought raced through my mind,
"What if Strydor bonds with her while I'm
gone for so long?" Oh, that was silly. Of
course he'll bond with 'GiGi" as we call her,
but he is totally my baby.
In recent weeks, health issues have
plagued my husband's grandmother.
"Grandma Terry" is a strong and gracious
woman who welcomed me into her fam-
ily with open arms and tremendous love.
During World War II, she enlisted in as a
Navy WAVE where she proudly served and


SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


married her sailor. I love her deeply. My
heart is heavy with worry that something
might happen to her while I'm gone. There
are moments that the knowledge that I
can't just leave the ship to come home for
her has gripped my heart with sadness.
I am madly in love with my Sailor. He
is my best friend, my soul mate, my hero.
My god-children tell us we're 'over the top'
with our affection for each other. We love
being together and treasure each day spent
together, especially since military service
requires so much time apart. Can I tell you
that I started thinking about all the time
we would spend apart, this time because
I'm the one leaving?
I am still motivated and excited about
this embed opportunity. But I was taken
aback by these feelings. As I talked with
my husband about them he smiled and
said, 'Welcome to my world, honey. As
deployment approaches I struggle with
guilt for leaving you. I know you're a strong
woman but I fear I won't be here if you
really need me or that something will hap-
pen to you or my family while I'm gone. We
all face these feelings."
Being the one left behind as a spouse is
tough. And I know that it is hard for our
service members to leave us. I just didn't
fully comprehend or appreciate their chal-
lenge until I stood in their shoes. Be sure
to tune into Navy Homefront Talk (www.
blogtalkradio.com/nht) to hear interviews
and updates from the ship as well as my
blog at www.myviewfromthepier.com.
