Former 'Mauler' named



Sea Sailor of the Year


By AT2(AW/SW) Reche Johnson
Public Affairs Office

Aviation Electronics Technician
First Class (AW/SW) Robert
Barber Jr. was recently named
2008 U.S. Fleet Forces (USFF)
Sea Sailor of the Year (SOY) by
Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces, Adm.
Jonathan Greenert at a ceremony
held at the Sheraton Waterside Hotel
in Norfolk, Va.
Barber was presented with a cer-
emonial cutlass, and will be meri-
toriously advanced to Chief Petty
Officer in July by the Chief of Naval
Operations and the Master Chief
Petty Officer of the Navy.
Barber is former Sailor of the
Year for the VS-32 "Maulers" an
S-3 Viking squadron that was dises-
tablished in September 2008 at NAS
Jacksonville. He is now stationed at
Fleet Readiness Center Southeast at
NAS Jacksonville, where he works in
the avionics division.
"These kinds of awards are the
things that you read about, but you
never think that it could actually be
you," he said.
Local military and civilian support-
ers in the Norfolk area sponsored four
days of activities focusing on the indi-
vidual achievements of 12 Sailors who
were considered the cream of the crop.
Each candidate spent one-on-one
time with Admiral Greenert, followed
by lunch with the Naval Surface
Forces Atlantic Fleet Chief Petty
Officers Association, and a meet-
and-greet with U.S. Fleet Forces
Master Chief (SW/AW) Tom Howard.
The Sailors also traveled to Naval
Amphibious Base Little Creek, Va.,
to see the Navy's Landing Craft Air
Cushioned Simulator.
During the four-day event, the can-
didates were interviewed to deter-

takes helm


at VP-45

By Lt.j.g. Nate Driessen
VP-45 Public Affairs Officer
The "Pelicans" of VP-45 gath-
ered aboard NAS Jacksonville
May 8 with families, friends
and special guests for the change
of command ceremony where Cmdr.
Gordon Wilson was relieved by his
former executive officer, Cmdr.
Andrew Smith.
Capt. Tim Brewer, chief of staff,
Naval Research Laboratories, hon-
ored the outgoing and incoming com-
manding officers with words about
the unique set of leadership attributes
that they both possess. He assured all
in attendance that Wilson's leader-
ship had prepared the squadron well
for its upcoming deployment.
"The new Pelican front office is pop-
ulated with impressive experience and
capabilities that will no doubt facili-
tate a very successful deployment,
beginning in June," said Brewer.
In his farewell address, Wilson
expressed how honored he was

mine who would be chosen the fol-
lowing day to represent USFF as the
newest SOY.
When Barber appeared at his board,
he was optimistic and slightly confi-
dent about his chances. After being
interviewed, he attended a pre-selec-
tion dinner held for the candidates
at the Military Aviation Museum in
Pungo, Va.
Showing true leadership and self-
lessness, he congratulated his col-
leagues around him for their contri-
butions and for making it as far as
they did.
"I was surrounded by some of the
best Sailors that I've had the pleasure
of meeting," he said, "To be selected
from among them is quite an honor."
Barber attributes his success to
many mentors who were instrumen-
tal in getting him in the position that


he is in today.
"I personally thank all of the Sailors
who have worked hard for me, and
I am appreciative of the mentoring
I've received from everyone that I've
worked for," he said.
While Barber can now be considered
an example to emulate, his selection
has not gone to his head.
"I don't wish to be viewed above my
peers; it is my belief that we are all
equally exceptional Sailors. This is
proven everyday by the extraordinary
things accomplished by the United
States Navy all over the world. I
just have the honor and the privi-
lege to represent the Fleet Forces Sea
Sailors," he continued.
A native of Albany, Ga, Barber
joined the Navy in December 1995.

to serve as Skipper of the greatest 0
squadron in naval aviation.
"I attribute all of our accomplish-
ments in a very challenging deploy-
ment readiness cycle to our Pelican
pride, hard work and leadership at
every level of VP-45," said Wilson.
Under his command, the Pelicans
surpassed 39 years and 242,000 mis-
hap-free flight hours during a chal-
lenging inter-deployment readiness

Facebook: Like it or not, it's here to stay


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


Facebook is like a perpetual
wedding reception. Remember
after the adrenaline rush of
the ceremony had passed and you
were standing at the reception with a
lot people who knew too much about
your past?
When I saw my college roommate
talking to my cousin, I freaked out
a little. What if she tells him about
my college days? What if he tells her
that I was the master of Super Mario
Brothers when I was 8 years old? And
what if he tells her that I still play
Super Mario Brothers?
It was like all my worlds colliding
in front of people (grandparents, old
neighbors, your second-grade teacher)
who should never really know any-
thing about my life after I turned
18. You wondered if the room might
explode. Then you saw your brother
and your sorority sister slow dancing.
This kind of awkwardness and
potential embarrassment is alive and
well on Facebook 24/7. Signing onto
the social networking site (Note: peo-
ple don't like people who actually net-
work on Facebook) is like willingly
subjecting yourself to the atmosphere
of your wedding reception again. And
if I remember correctly, you got drunk
at your reception to dull the pain.
(Drinking + Facebooking, like drink-
ing + dialing = not a good idea.)
There was a time when it was not
unusual for me to talk on the phone
with my friend Kristi for two to three
hours. That was before the popularity
of email and websites like Facebook.


FROM THE HOMEFRONT


Back then, I actually
knew how to commu-
nicate with another
human being. The
phone was a tool for
catching up with
friends. I was not
afraid to leap over
small children for the
opportunity to answer
a ringing telephone.
These days, however,
the phone is like a hot
potato tossed back and
forth between Dustin Sarah
and I.
"You answer it."
"No, you answer it."
"But what will I say?"
"How about 'Hello?"'
"I'll let the answering machine
catch it."
Back when talking on the phone
was all the rage, people without "call
waiting" were akin to someone iso-
lating themselves from every possi-
bility of communication. Today, they
are the same people who refuse to
try Facebook on principle, or those
who leave their account with that cold
witness-protection-like universal sil-
houette in place of their photograph.
They are most likely the only ones left
who know how to talk on the phone.
Facebook keeps military friends
in touch. The Christmas card lists
and address books of military fami-
lies are long and full. As we make


HEY, MONEYCHIC!

Hey, MoneyChic!
My wife is interested in pursuing further education.
There are two snags with this goal. The first problem is
affording any type of schooling. We are on a break even
budget as it is- there aren't any extra funds for tuition
or training of any sort right now. We could use the extra
paycheck for sure though and I'm glad she has the moti-
vation for school or training. The only other concern, I've
seen military wives find jobs and then are upset when new
orders arrive and the family has to uproot. Any thoughts?
MoneyChic says: I've got just the thing for you Sailor.
The Department of Defense is expanding the Military
Spouse Career Advancement accounts for military spouses
of active duty service members worldwide beginning this
month. The program, called MyCAA was created for
military spouses to receive up to $6,000 of financial assis-
tance to help pay for licenses, certifications and education
in high growth, high demand portable careers.
What is a portable career? Those that are likely to pro-
vide a job opportunity in most locations a military member
may be stationed. For example: certified public accoun-
tant, licensed cosmetologist or medical transcriptionist.
Visit the MyCAA page from the Military OneSource Web
site: https://aiportal.acc.af.mil/mycaa/default.aspx.
I'd also like to give another tip. If/when your wife finds
employment; do not count on her paycheck as part of
income for your monthly bills. Due to the nature of the
military lifestyle and often times, many moves, spouse
employment should be used for: extras, vacations, contrib-
uting to IRA's or college savings plans, and paying down
debts. Too often military families depend on the second
income for bills and face difficult times in a new duty sta-
tion if the wife is not able to find work in a timely fashion.

S


friends from different
cultures, and because
we usually only live
near these friends for
two to three years at
a time, they remem-
ber us within the con-
b text of a specific time
in our life. (Imagine
how the room might
explode if all these
folks got together.)
Before Facebook, it
was difficult to main-
imiley tain these friendships
as we grew apart from
each other, often on opposite sides of
the country or world. It wasn't possi-
ble to keep intimate friendships with
everyone we had met. There weren't
enough long distance minutes or post-
age stamps.
Thanks to Facebook, this is no lon-
ger the case. My military friend, Beth,
who was transferred to Japan, is on
Facebook, and despite the physical
distance between us (I'm here enjoy-
ing my Monday while she is across
the globe waking up to Tuesday), we
have remained a part of each other's
daily life.
Beth's Facebook status updates tell
me that she is volunteering at her
children's school or taking them to
baseball practice. I see pictures of her
daughter's birthday party and their
living quarters on base. No telephone
call or postage stamp required.

McKenna takes helm at NOSC Jax


By Lt. Cmdr. Alphonso Doss
NOSC Jacksonville Administrative
& Supply Officer
Capt. Robert McKenna
relieved Capt. Lynn
McCarthy as command-
ing officer of Navy Operational
Support Center (NOSC)
Jacksonville May 16.
McKenna is a 1984 graduate
of the U.S. Merchant Marine
Academy. He activated his com-
mission in 1985 and reported to
Navy Surface Warfare Officer
School in Newport, R.I. He served
aboard USS Estocin (FFG-15)
as CIC officer and main propul-
sion assistant from 1985 to 1988,
USS Fairfax County (LST-1193)
as operations officer from 1992
to 1993, USS Mobile (LKA-115)
as First Lieutenant from 1993 to
1994, USS Belleau Wood (LHA-
3) as First Lieutenant from 1994


to 1995 and USS Ponce (LPD-15)
as executive officer from 1998 to
1999.
Additionally, he was assigned
to the following shore commands:
manpower officer at Naval


Reserve Readiness Command
Region Eight; Commanding
Officer, Naval and Marine Corps
Reserve Center in West Palm
Beach, Fla.; liaison officer for
Commander, Belgian-Netherlands


Task Group; action officer on
the staff of the Director of Naval
Reserve in Washington, D.C.
McKenna also served as chief
staff officer for Naval Coastal
Warfare Squadron 25 from 2003
to 2005, and in that capacity,
deployed to Kuwait in support
of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He
was most recently the assistant
chief of staff for training at Navy
Expeditionary Combat Command
from October 2005 until January
2009. During that period, he also
served as the acting commander,
Maritime Civil Affairs Group for
a five-month period.
Following the change of com-
mand ceremony, McCarthy sub-
sequently retired during the
same ceremony. Her illustrious
career spanned almost 36 years.
She enlisted in the Navy in 1973,
and after achieving the rank of


first class petty officer, she was
commissioned an Ensign in
1982 through the Navy Officer
Candidate School program.
She holds a bachelor of arts
degree in business administration
and psychology and a master's
degree in business administra-
tion.
Of her many accomplishments,
she is credited with standing up
the Navy's active and reserve
components of the human resourc-
es (HR) officer community.
The guest speaker for the
change of command portion of
the ceremony was Capt. Randall
Snyder, commander, Navy Region
Southeast Reserve Component
Command. The guest speaker for
the retirement portion of the cer-
emony was Rear Adm. Cynthia
Covell, director, Total Force
Requirements Division.

Miscellaneous devices that may
significantly raise electricity use
are those with long or continuous
operating hours, such as refrigera-
tors, coffee makers, water cool-
ers and fans. Intermittent-
use devices such as toaster
ovens and hot plates may
be of concern for build-
ing wiring or fire safe-
ty, but not for energy
use.
Coffee makers,
because they are often left on all day, can
use considerable energy. Offices should
be encouraged to purchase thermos coffee
dispensers, which not only save energy
but result in better tasting coffee and less
waste due to overheating.


ENERGY STAR-rated water coolers are
available that save energy while in stand-
by mode.
Some individual fans used in offices are
likely unnecessary, but when many are
found in a building, it usually signals inad-
equacies in the space conditioning
or ventilation system. If it is
possible to get systems fixed,
managers can ask to have
the fans removed.
Did you know? If
300,000 Navy person-
nel turned off their
office lights during
the lunch hour (four
fluorescent tubes per person for 250 hours
per year), the Navy could save $1.2 mil-
lion annually and reduce emissions by 51.6
million pounds of nitrogen dioxide, 124.8
million pounds of sulfur dioxide, 13,656
million pounds of carbon dioxide.

service members from Northeast
Florida and South Georgia con-
verged on NAS Jacksonville
May 12 to take part in the fourth
Recreational Safety Rodeo at the
base commissary parking lot. The
event showcased the latest safety
information related to motorcycles,
bicycling, ATVs, boating, personal
watercraft, scuba diving and other
recreational activities.
The rodeo kicked off with a group
motorcycle ride led by NAS Jax Police
Department and the Jacksonville
Sheriffs Office (JSO) Motor Unit
from the Target parking lot, down
Roosevelt Boulevard to the main gate,
and through the base.
Event organizer Connie Policastro,
a motorcycle safety instructor at
the NAS Jax Safety Office, wel-
comed more than 60 riders from NAS
Jax, NSB Kings Bay, Ga., and NS
Mayport.
"May is motorcycle awareness
month and today's event shows the
commitment of our Sailors, DoD civil-
ians and retirees to enjoying accident-
free riding every day," said Policastro.
She introduced Sgt. Jay Farhat,
who explained that the JSO Motor
Unit consists of 17 motormen and two
sergeants who conduct daily traffic
enforcement in Duval County. "We
also support special events from
escorting the president of the United
States and other visiting dignitaries
to ensuring traffic safety at events
such as the River Run 10K, the
Jacksonville Jaguars games and, of
course, the NAS Jax Safety Rodeo."
Farhat concluded, "Today, we'll
demonstrate low-speed, tight-turn
maneuvers that most people think are
impossible with these large motor-
cycles. We believe that the more you
learn to safely handle your bike, your
confidence and well being will only
increase. That's why we respect the
motorcycle rider courses that are

taught at military bases like NAS
Jacksonville."
As the group motorcycle ride arrived
in the commissary parking lot, NAS
Jacksonville Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. welcomed the
crowd by talking about the critical
need for recreational safety aware-
ness.
"Our most precious resource is our
people. As warfighters, we focus on
safety and protecting the lives of those
under our command. Yet when we are
off-duty, we too often relax our focus
-and that puts our Sailors at higher
risk," said Scorby. "As the Memorial
Day weekend and 101 Critical Days
of Summer approach, please remem-
ber that traffic accidents often involve
speed, lack of seatbelts, fatigue, and
- too often alcohol. So thank you
all for coming out today and doing
your part to stay safe."
NAS Jax Safety Officer and Navy
Region Southeast Safety Manager
Ron Williamson said, "This rodeo is a

number one priority. "As the Memorial

hap can turn off-duty fun into a tragedy.
Please do all you can to minimize your
risks and return to work safely."

NAS Jax IA returns

By ET2(SW/AW) Rishona
Headen-Brown
Southeast Regional

ATC(AW/SW) Deb
Burkett of South-
east Regional Cali-
bration Center (SERCC)
recently returned to NAS
Jacksonville after an indi-
vidual augmentee (IA)
assignment to Expeditionary
Medical Facility Kuwait for
the past seven months.
As an avionics electronic
technician, working at a
medical facility was unchart-
ed ground. However, this
assignment allowed her to
do what she does best: 'take
care of Sailors 24/7.'
Burkett served as the
camp commandant at Naval
Expeditionary Medical
Training Institute (NEMTI)
for a team of 107 enlisted
and 51 officer IAs from 72
commands. Additionally,
she managed logistics, force
protection, and troop move-
ment for 300 Navy, Army
and Marine Corps members
deploying to the area of
responsibility.
She also served as direc-
tor for administration senior
enlisted leader, assisting
five members reenlist and 15
percent of her troops advanc-
ing in their rates. Under
her leadership, her Sailors
were able to not only fulfill
the mission, but go above

ing personal goals such as
improving physical fitness,
completing college courses
and attaining higher in-rate
qualifications. These accom-
plishments resulted in their
selection as Sailors of the

ous meritorious awards. In
addition, she led a team of
financial specialists provid-
ing invaluable counseling to
camps throughout Kuwait.
When asked about her
IA experience, Burkett
described it as, "very enrich-
ing to be a part of the chang-
es resulting in joined forces
of the military." Sharing
her knowledge and guidance
with those Sailors deployed
for the first time was grati-
fying. Working with Fleet
Marine Force corpsman was
another fortunate opportu-
nity she was able to experi-
ence. For the first time in
her career, she worked on an
Army base, which allowed
her to become familiar with
Army daily operations as


well as their traditions,
which reinforced the value
of naval traditions. This
was a unique opportunity to
see the similarities in the
branches of service.
Burkett is now serving as
the command senior chief at
SERCC. She encourages all
Sailors to take advantage of
the opportunity to work with
other branches. "As travel
and education broaden ones
perspective, stepping outside
of the scope of normal duties
by taking an IA assignment
makes for a well-rounded
Sailor," said Burkett.
"Her commitment in a
challenging environment
has made a difference in
our efforts to combat glob-
al terrorism around the


world. Because of dedicated
Sailors like ATCS Burkett,
I remain excited to come
to work every day," added
SERCC Officer in Charge
CWO5 Wayne Elliott. "She
is a tremendous asset to our
command, the Navy and our
country."

Ground breaks for joint research facility


NMSC units

combine as

NAMRU-SA
By MCI(SW) Arthur De La Cruz
Navy Medicine Support Command

Groundbreaking ceremo-
ny was held at Ft. Sam
Houston, Texas, May 6
for the new Tri-Service Research
Laboratory (TSRL), marking
another step forward for Navy
Medicine and Navy Medicine
Support Command (NMSC)
research and development.
The 181,000-square foot facility
will house two primary research
entities: the Directed Energy
research portion of Naval Medical
Research Unit-San Antonio
(NAMRU-SA) and the Air Force
Research Laboratory Directed
Energy research group.
NAMRU-SA, previously the
Naval Health Research Center
Directed Energy Bioeffects
Laboratory, was officially com-
missioned during an informal cer-
emony after the groundbreaking.
It becomes the latest subordinate
command under NAS Jacksonville-
based NMSC. NAMRU-SA reports
to NMSC via the Naval Medical
Research Center (NMRC) in Silver
Spring, Md.

international recognition for their
combined efforts, we are certainly
looking forward to future success-
es as they continue to be seen as
a respected authority on directed
energy bioeffects and safety stan-
dards for the military and the civil-
ian sectors, said Rear Adm. Richard

staff moves will begin next year,


but now we are breaking ground on
this new facility with great expec-
tation of things to come."

function.
The Great Lakes and Silver
Spring units will be housed in a
different facility the Joint Center
of Excellence for Battlefield
Health and Trauma that is cur-
rently under construction at Fort
Sam Houston. All of these groups
are being co-located to Fort Sam
Houston as a result of the 2005


Base Realignment and Closure con-
struction program for San Antonio.
The TSRL facility consolidates
Air Force and Navy research pro-
grams that address the health and
safety effects of exposure to various
stressors into one location. When
completed and operational it will
be a Department of Defense facility
that allows the Navy and Air Force
to simultaneously conduct directed-
energy bio-effects research.
Navy Medicine scientists at
NAMRU-SA will work to under-
stand and manage the risks asso-
ciated with human exposure to
radio frequency, microwaves,
lasers and low-frequency directed
energy sources, said Capt. Vincent
Delnnocentiis, NAMRU-SA com-
manding officer. The research
will support programs that protect
the health and safety of Navy and
Marine Corps personnel in both
routine and combat operations.
Much of this research is also used
to help set international safety
standards that, in turn, help pro-
tect the health and safety of people
around the world.
A $69.9 million contract was
awarded to Skanska USA Building,
Inc. for construction of the TSRL.
Additionally, a $367,000 con-
tract was awarded to Blackhawk
Ventures, LLC, based in San
Antonio, for installation of the
ducts and cabling necessary to pro-
vide voice and data communica-
tions to the TSRL facility.
Construction on the new labora-
tory is scheduled to begin in July
and is expected to be completed by
March 2011.

Navy Lodge guests can now PCS with a pet


By Kristine Sturkie
NEXCOM Public Affairs Officer
Moving to a new
base just got a lot
easier for those
traveling with a fam-
ily pet. Most Navy Lodge's
worldwide now allow dogs
and cats up to 50 pounds
to stay with owners when
traveling.
"Over 60 percent of all
Americans have pets and
the military is no different,"
said Michael Bockelman,
NEXCOM Vice President
and Director, Navy Lodge
Program.
"Navy Lodge guests often
stay with us during a per-
manent change of station
move. Before, guests had
to board their pet until they
could move into their new
home. Now, the pet can
stay with the rest of the
family at the Navy Lodge
- making a military move
much easier for the entire
family."
The Navy Lodge asks pet
owners to take the follow-
ing into consideration:


First, keep in mind how
long you will be traveling
and bring appropriate food
and other supplies.
Always travel with a pet
carrier.
Before you leave town,
schedule a visit with your
veterinarian to update all
medications or treatments
required and bring a copy
of each pet's vaccination
record.
It is also a good idea to
carry a health certificate
for each animal if traveling
state to state or crossing


international borders.
Finally, when you are at
the Navy Lodge, treat the
area where you walk as if
it were your own yard and
always clean up after your
pet, using the bags provid-
ed.
Navy Lodges are on aver-
age 43 percent less expen-
sive than comparable civil-
ian accommodations, and
still have the same and
more amenities.
Every guest room is over-
sized with cable TV with
Showtime, a DVD/CD


player, direct-dial tele-
phone service, high-speed
Internet access, and a
kitchenette complete with
microwave, refrigerator,
and utensils.
Navy Lodges also have
housekeeping service, vend-
ing machines, DVD rental
service and guest laundry
facilities as well as handi-
capped accessible and non-
smoking rooms.
Free local calls, free in-
room coffee and newspapers
as well as convenient on-
base parking are also avail-
able during your stay.
To make a reservation toll
free at 1-800-NAVY-INN or
log onto www.navy-lodge.
com.
Once you make a res-
ervation, you cannot be
bumped from your room.
Reservation and room
assignments are accepted
on an as-received basis
without regard to rank, rate
or time of reservation.

options go to www.dodlodg-

FISCJ logistics supports UNITAS Gold


By Kari Hansen
FISCJ Corporate Communications


Fleet and Industrial Supply Center
Jacksonville (FISCJ) provided logis-
tics support for 25 ships, four sub-
marines, 50 aircraft, and more than 6,500
Sailors representing Argentina, Brazil,
Canada, Chile, Colombia, Dominican
Republic, Ecuador, Germany, Mexico,
Peru and Uruguay at NS Mayport, NSB
Kings Bay and Blount Island for the 50th
iteration of the UNITAS Gold exercise
April 17-May 4.
UNITAS is the longest-running annual
multinational exercise that permits the
United States and partner nations to train
together in a realistic tactical training
environment featuring live-fire exercis-
es, undersea warfare, shipboard opera-
tions, maritime interdiction operations, air


defense, surface warfare, amphibious oper-
ations, electronic warfare and special oper-
ations. Additionally, the exercise allows
Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen,
the opportunity to train side-by-side
with other navies in a high-tech environ-
ment utilizing sophisticated equipment.
UNITAS 2009 was hosted and executed for
the first time by Commander, U. S. Naval
Forces Southern Command (NAVSOUTH)
from NS Mayport. However, the exer-
cise required meticulous planning and an
extraordinary effort from FISCJ which
provided logistics services requiring phe-
nomenal effort and cooperation between
NAVSOUTH, Naval Facilities Engineering
Command (NAVFAC) Southeast and NS
Mayport Harbor Operations.
The FISCJ Mayport Logistics Support
Center (LSC), augmented by FISCJ Navy
Reserve Unit 108, provided logistics sup-


port services, including: disposal of gar-
bage, sewage, bilge water, and hazardous
materials waste; delivering food; providing
Morale, Welfare and Recreation informa-
tion; and the escorting of foreign husband-
ing agents around the NS Mayport area.
The FISCJ Fuel Department issued more
than 1.5 million gallons of fuel to 14 vessels.
Running concurrently with the UNITAS
Gold exercise, the 2009 Partnership of the
Americas (POA) exercise was executed at
Camp Blanding, Fla. This annual exercise
focuses on amphibious operations, non-
combatant evacuation operations, peace
keeping and disaster relief. FISCJ support
of POA included a myriad of contracting
actions, including field galley services for
more than 700 U.S. Marines, Canadian
Army and other international forces.
Overall, the UNITAS Gold 2009 exercise
supported the U.S. Maritime Strategy by

2009 flagship, USS Mesa Verde (LPD 19).
bringing partner nation navies together
to promote interoperability, develop coali-
tion building and multi-lateral security
cooperation amongst participating nations.
As a result of effective coordination, com-
munication and the dedication of FISCJ
personnel and other U.S. naval forces, all
of the participating navies received ongo-
ing sustained support.


FISCJ storekeepers assume NAS Jax governmental postal positions

Jacksonville (FISCJ) Det NAS
Jacksonville officially assumed the
government postal position May 1 at the
base post office located at Child St. and
FISCJ personnel conducted a continuous
process improvement study in July 2008 to
review the Tri-Site Admin postal operation.
It was determined that a military transi-
tion of the postal operation could be both
cost effective and beneficial to storekeepers
(SK) seeking advancement. A change was
initiated in the Tri-Site Admin contract to
remove the NAS Jacksonville postal func-
tion from the contract and give that work
to SKs who had enough capacity to handle
the increased workload.

CHAPLAIN'S CORNER

The power ofprayer

By Command Chaplain (Cmdr.) Gerald Felder
T he month of May began with the infancies on
prayer "National Day of Prayer." This has been
a recognized occasion for many years. In fact,
America was founded on Biblical standards and Godly
principles. Many organizations will take time to empha-
size the importance of prayer and its affect on our great
nation.
What is prayer? Webster's Dictionary defines it as a
"humble communication in thought or speech to God or to
an object of worship
expressing supplica-
tion, thanksgiving,
praise, confession,
etc."
This world is full
of different religious
groups and sects, all
of which spend time
in prayer. The man,
Jesus, began his min-
istry with prayer.
As a matter of fact, .
whenever he was
approached by people
or for people, Jesus
never hesitated to
pray. We could learn
a lot from Him and
NAS Jax Command Chaplain
His purpose and the (Cmdr.) Gerald Felder
power of prayer. I was
speaking to a chapel member after a service one Sunday.
We were talking about "acknowledgment of God in our
everyday discussion making." His comment was that he
does not always make hasty discussions without prayer.
During Desert Storm, we visited the port in a city called
Muscat. I was fascinated with the dedication of the people
of that country and their devotion to prayer. It seemed
like everything stopped and the people would pray three
times a day. I drew the conclusion that their time to com-
municate to their God was of utmost importance.
Prayer is powerful because it connects us with God and
gives us a means of sharing things we might not normally
share with others. It gives us hope in times of trouble and
peace when we are confused. Prayer reaffirms our faith in
someone greater than ourselves.
Many of you will remember some of the sayings in ref-
erence to prayer, such as, "a family that prays together
stay together." I say, "a nation that prays together stays
together!" Let's make every day a national day of prayer.
Let's pray for peace and understanding throughout our
world. For our leaders and our church and our families .
Slet us pray.

Navy League Jacksonville tours FRCSE

By Judy Alexander S p eis-- I ,_ _._.._
Public Affairs Specialist L I .!


Members of the Navy
League Jacksonville
Council and senior busi-
ness leaders from the local com-
munity visited Fleet Readiness
Center Southeast (FRCSE) May
14, where FRCSE Commanding
Officer Capt. Tim Matthews
briefed them on the history of the
facility and how the work accom-
plished here supports America's
Warfighters.
The group toured the F/A-18
Center Barrel Replacement
(CBR+) line where they saw the
intensive maintenance service
performed on the F/A-18 Hornet.
The CBR+ modification is the
major structural modification
that disassembles the aircraft for
the removal and replacement of
the main load-bearing structure.
The wings attach to the aircraft
at the top of the center barrel sec-
tion and the landing gear attach
to the aircraft at the bottom of
the center barrel resulting in
structural stress every time the
aircraft lands or takes off.
The replacement of the center
barrel extends the service life of
the aircraft as much as 70 per-
cent and provides an economical
alternative to procuring entirely
new airframes.
Also included on the tour
was the manufacturing facil-
ity at FRCSE. The manufacturing
teams at FRCSE are responsi-
ble for fabricating, repairing and
refurbishing components, detail
parts and sheet metal parts for
the F/A-18 A-D Hornet, the SH-
60 Seahawk, the P-3 Orion, and
the EA-6B Prowler.
Many of these parts are
unavailable from vendors or the
supply system. FRCSE employs
highly skilled artisans who use
precision equipment for machin-
ing and fabricating components to
maintain the strict dimensional
tolerances required for aerospace
components.


Photos courtesy of FRCSE
Lt. Cmdr. Nate Marler, F/A-18 product office, explains the importance of
kit boxes during the Navy League tour. More than 5,000 individual items
are removed from the F/A-18 during the center barrel replacement pro-
cesses. Many of these items are placed in kit boxes and stored until needed
later in the production process. Other items are routed to various produc-
tion shops for evaluation, testing and repair as needed.


These artisans are masters
of their respective trades, with
decades of practical experience,
training and expertise.
The group ended the tour with a
walk past the P-3 Hangar where
Capt. Matthews explained the
importance of the P-3 Red-stripe
repairs.
The term "Red-stripe" comes
from the diagonal red stripe on
the Airworthiness Bulletin that
grounded 39 P-3C aircraft in
December 2007 for structural
fatigue concerns on a portion of
the lower outer wing, called Zone


The P-3 groundings were not
the result of an aircraft incident,
rather the result of ongoing anal-
ysis obtained through monitor-
ing the fatigue status, flight hour
usage, and operational profiles on
aircraft.
The Navy League is a civilian
organization of more than 60,000
members dedicated to keeping the
American people and government
officials informed about America's
national security requirements
and their relationship to our eco-
nomic prosperity.

Machinist Rickey Doucette (right) explains the production process for the
manufacture of the F/A-18 engine mounts and other parts critical to the
repair of aircraft. F/A-18 engineers regularly inspect various parts of the
aircraft for wear and tear. Inspections of the left inboard engine mount
revealed out-of-tolerance wear and gouging. When parts were not avail-
able in the supply system, the FRCSE Manufacturing Division produced
titanium engine mounts in a record six weeks.

cycle in preparation for the upcoming
PACOM and SOUTHCOM deployment.
Wilson also led the squadron through
the transition from the Consolidated
Maintenance Organization concept to
organic, squadron-level maintenance. His
guidance resulted in a smooth and expe-
ditious addition of a new maintenance
department and reintegration of 220 main-
tainers.
Wilson said, "This is a truly bittersweet
day for me. When I reflect on the hard
work and dedication of our Pelican family,
I'm proud that we successfully completed
one of the most difficult deployment readi-
ness cycles in squadron history."
He stressed that while doing so, the
squadron remained a model of how to get
things done the right way and with integ-
rity.


In keeping with ceremonial tradition,
Cmdr. Smith kept his first remarks as
commanding officer brief. The new Skipper
thanked Wilson for his leadership dur-
ing his executive officer tour. He also
expressed gratitude to his wife and three
sons for their dedicated support of his
career. Smith extended a warm Pelican
welcome to his new executive officer, Cmdr.
Michael Doherty, his wife, and their four
children.
Doherty graduated with merit from the
U.S. Naval Academy with an economics
degree in 1992. He received his Wings of
Gold in 1995. He was previously executive
officer of the Fleet Replacement Squadron,
VP-30, onboard NAS Jacksonville. Doherty
said he looks forward to working with
Smith and the proud Pelicans of VP-45 to
build upon the squadron's reputation for
excellence and operational mission accom-
plishment.

NAS Jax hosts I


Seabee rodeo

ByAWVAN Scott Beach
Staff Writer

T he Third Naval Construction
Regiment Seabee Rodeo was
held aboard NAS Jacksonville
April 28 through May 3. The compet-
ing teams were NMCB 14 of NAS Jax,
NMCB 23 of Fort Belvoir, Va., and
NMCB 24 of Redstone Arsenal Ala.
"Each team competes in general mili-
tary skills, uniform appearance, physi-
cal training and readiness, construction
skills, marksmanship and other skills,"
explained NMCB 14 Commanding
Officer Capt. Joseph Hinson.
To simulate being deployed, competi-
tors bivouacked in tents and dined on
MREs (Meals Ready to Eat). Events
took place throughout the day and
night with teams competing in events
representing every aspect of Seabee life
- such as personnel inspections, close
order drill, land navigation, erecting
tents within a secure perimeter, and
command operations center exercises
that simulate attacks on their base.
They also participated in practical
rate exercises that test the skills of
the individual Seabee. Construction
mechanics had to build a working cabi-
net with sink. Engineering aides sur-
veyed construction sites.
Equipment operators were tasked
with loading and unloading a trac-
tor onto an 18-wheeler flat bed.
Steelworkers welded and cut sheet
metal, and utilitiesmen erected lights
and ran power cables fto them in a
mock structure. Other rates attached
to Seabee battalions, such as store-
keepers and culinary specialists had
events of their own.
The "Iron CS Challenge" mimicked
the Iron Chef television show but
with some aspects geared more towards
cooking on deployment rather than in a
regular galley kitchen.
"This is the second running of the
Iron CS Challenge. We try to set the
same tone and environment, as they
would encounter in the field. They get
limited resources and a surprise item,
which today happens to be a tomato,"
said CSC(MCFE/CHM/CPFM) Michael
Farrell of NMCB 23. "Competitors have
to create a meal around that tomato

and only have 2.5 hours to prepare,
cook and serve the meal. The skipper
and the commodore will evaluate each
chefs creation on taste, presentation
and creativity. The winner is present-
ed with the Iron Culinary Specialist
Trophy that they will keep until next
year's rodeo," said Farrell.
Hinson continued, "After six days of
friendly but serious competition, we
tally up the scores to determine our
rodeo champion. They take home the
trophy until the next year's rodeo."
Staff from the Third Naval
Construction Regiment, headquartered
in Atlanta, judged the events. At the
end of the competition, NMCB 23 came
out on top winning both the Iron
CS Challenge and the overall Seabee
Rodeo.

SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


National security


and USNS Comfort

By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor

I made it! I'm aboard the USNS Comfort. I have so
much to talk about from just my first four days that
it was hard to keep this column down to 500 words.
I came to USNS Comfort with an agenda to under-
stand what my service member experiences on deploy-
ment, to gain that 'big picture' focus and to communicate
that to my fellow spouses. I want to invite you to follow
my daily blogs and broadcasts from the ship about this
'embed' at www.homefrontinfocus.com.
When I told friends of the nature of the USNS Comfort's
mission, many came right out and said things like, "Oh,
you're going on a pleasure cruise." In fact, the ship's mis-
sion plays a direct role in national security.
In the old, cold war model, national security was syn-
onymous with a strong military. Today, national security
encompasses 'shock and awe' and much more. Consider
the piracy attacks filling the news. We know they are from
Somali, a country with a failed government that has not
provided for its people in four distinct areas: education,
economy, health/safety and security. As a result, desper-
ate times give way to desperate measures: lawlessness,
radicalization and, in this case, piracy.
National security necessitates not only a strong mili-
tary, but education and economic opportunities for a sta-
ble society. Could it be that national security begins with
personal security? A nation's citizenry cannot advance
beyond the daily struggle of survival without basic health,
safety and education. Our national security is affected by
the more than the military strength and prowess of our
enemies. It is also determined by the health, safety, secu-
rity, education and economy of our neighbors.
The mission of USNS Comfort and the non-govern-
mental organizations (NGO) partnering with the Navy
in "Continuing Promise 2009" is a vital part of national
security. Contributing to the overall health and safety of a
community strengthens that community, and contributes
to the overall health and strength of that nation.
Okay, I know the perspective still remains that a strong
military equals national security. And I'll grant you that
a humanitarian mission is not wrought with the same
dangers as a boots-on-the-ground mission in Afghanistan.
But in terms of the contribution to the health and wel-
fare of these nations well, national security is far more
than guns and USNS Comfort's teams of medical, dental,
optometry, public health, engineers, educators and more,
is at the tip of the spear for these efforts.
Please check out this unique crew and their accomplish-
ments at: www.homefrontinfocus.com and www.southcom.

Grab'n'go kit: Essential items


to pack in case of an evacuation

From CNIC Public Affairs

In light of Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 24-30), the Navy's Operation Prepare
campaign urges you to be prepared knowing the vulnerabilities and the actions you
and your family can take before a hurricane. If you are in an area that is prone to
hurricanes, you should have plans for securing your home, evacuating to shelter, and
maintaining communications.
Another critical step in hurricane preparedness is assembling a grab'n'go kit a stash
of emergency supplies ready to snatch when you have to seek a safe place to ride out the
storm. Checklists for supplies are easy to find online and is included with the Operation
Prepare information on the CNIC Web site at https://www.cnic.navy.mil. Here is a list
based on recommendations from NOAA's National Hurricane Center:
Water-one gallon per person per day for three to seven days, for drinking and sani-
tation
Food-enough nonperishable packaged or canned food/juices for the family for three
to seven days, including snacks and foods for infants or the elderly
Manual can opener, cooking tools/fuel, disposable plates and utensils
Wet wipes, toiletries, hygiene items
First aid kit, medicines, prescription drugs
Seasonal clothing and rain gear, sturdy shoes
Blankets, pillows, etc.
Battery-powered or hand-crank radio and a NOAA weather radio with tone alert,
flashlight, and extra batteries
Fully charged cell phone with extra battery
Cash with some small bills and credit cards (banks and ATMs may not be available)
A waterproof container of important documents-driver's license, Social Security
cards, proof of residence, insurance, medical records, prescriptions, bank account num-
bers, birth and marriage certificates, deeds, wills, tax records, etc.
Extra keys
Include unique family needs, such as infant and pet supplies. Don't forget a supply of
toys, books, and games for children. Many shelters do not allow pets, but if you are tak-
ing them, bring along a leash and muzzle, proper ID and immunization records, medica-
tions, an ample supply of food and water, and a carrier or cage.
Store your supplies in one or two easy-to-carry containers-plastic bins, backpacks, or
duffle bags-and make sure everyone in the family can access them. Keep maps and a
toolset in your vehicle, and don't wait to the last minute to fill the gas tank.
