VP-30

Excellence in safety and
maintenance recognized

VP-30 Public Affairs Officer
officers, chiefs, petty offi-
cers and airmen stood
proudly in the VP-30 audi-
torium May 8 as Commander,
Patrol and Reconnaissance
Group, Rear Adm. Bill Moran
presented AD2 Melvin Redding
with the squadron's second con-
secutive CNO Aviation Safety "S"
award.
VP-30 safely surpassed 6,723
flight hours and 19,251 landings
for 2008. This brings the squad-
ron total to 433,000 mishap-free
flight hours over the past 45
years.
Redding, who works in the
squadron's power plants division,
was called forward to receive
the monthly VP-30 Safety Pro
award from Moran and VP-30
Commanding Officer Capt. Rich
Fite.
"Then they surprised me by
asking me to accept the CNO
Safety 'S' award on behalf of our
squadron. It was a real honor,"
said Redding.

award to VP-30 maintainer AD2 Melvin Redding as VP-30 Commanding Officer Capt. Rich Fite lookslon.


Nest" Moran stated, "The Safety
'S' is emblematic of VP-30's
enduring commitment to opera-
tional excellence and readiness
through safety. Whenever I visit
this squadron, it's easy to see that
safety is big part of your culture.
It can never be something you


strive for just to win an award.
'As a former safety officer and
assistant maintenance officer for
CPRW-11, nobody appreciates
your accomplishment more than
I do. I challenge you to maintain
your outstanding safety record for
another 45 years."


"Fite said, "Our impressive safe-
ty record of back-to back CNO
Aviation Safety 'S' awards is a
byproduct of the excellence within
our squadron. Safety and excel-
lence are interwoven, so it's no
surprise that a squadron that is
highly successful in its mission


also has a phenomenal safety
record. We have extraordinary
deckplate leadership and our
team is focused on by-the-book
maintenance."
Fite continued, "I attribut
the success of the Pro's Nest tc
teamwork. The reason that VP-
30 is unique comes from working
together as a team. One team,
one fight. No one thinks that
their job is more important than
anybody else's job. Each person
brings their 'A' game to work
every day. No one has to tell us
we have to work late if something
isn't done correctly or safely.
Everyone knows their job and the
safety procedures that go along
with their job. That is why I'm
not surprised that we have won
the award two times in a row."

NMCRS fund drive




far exceeds goal


By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO

A wrap-up celebration
bL held May 21 at the NAS
LJacksonville Officers' Club
officially ended the 2009 Na'vy
Region Southeast Navy-Marine
Corps Relief Society (NMCRS)
Fund Drive.
This year's fund drive gener-
ated $283,768 to benefit Sailors,
Marines and their families who
receive assistance through loans
and grants in times of need. The
total amount of funds. exceeded
this year's goal by more than
$65,000.
"It was kind of slow in the
beginning then all of a sudden,
everyone came through by holding
fundraisers such as bake sales,
pizza sales, car. washes, a golf


tournament and the CO and XO
at the hospital even donated their
parking spots for raise money for
the cause," said Lt. Edith Akoto
of Naval Hospital Jax who acted
as this year's assistant area coor-
dinator.
"It was a great experience to
head this up along with HMC
Nikki Dean and HM1 Kathy
Myers. Even though we are in
tough economic times, people
gave frbm their hearts and we
had a very successful fund drive.
Thanks to everyone involved, for
getting the word out and for going
the extra mile to make this so
successful," she continued.
Akoto then introduced NAS Jax
NMCRS Director Dave Faraldo
who thanked the staff of Naval
Hospital Jax for taking the helm
and leading this year's fund

New NAS Jax VR squadron holds change of command

Cmdr. Shawn Casey (left) transfers control of VR-62 to
Cmdr. Christopher Thomson with the exchange of the words,
"I relieve you, sir" and "I stand relieved," as CMDCM Jamie
Marshall observes.


T he proud men and women of
VR-62 assembled in ranks
May 16 to bid farewell to
Commanding Officer Cmdr. Shawn
Casey in their final change of com-
mand ceremony at NAS Brunswick,
Maine. In the presence of colleagues,
family and friends, Casey was
relieved by former Executive Officer
Cmdr. Christopher Thomson in this
time-honored ceremony.
The squadron is moving to NAS
Jacksonville as part of the 2006 BRAC
decision to close NAS Brunswick.
The first C-130 is scheduled to
arrive in Jacksonville this month.


Guest Speaker Capt. Richard Tedmon,
commodore of the Fleet Logistics
Support Wing, congratulated Casey
in transitioning VR-62 from "a pre-
mier squadron within the wing, to the
flagship squadron."
Casey thanked each of the Sailors
of VR-62 for having worked hard as
a professional and coordinated team
this past 15 months, maintaining
global detachments and commit-
ments while planning their homeport
change to NAS Jacksonville. Casey
stated, "My goal was to be able to
hand over the squadron fully opera-
tional, safe, and ready for the move to
Jacksonville."
No stranger to moving, VR-62
will relocate for the third time in


15 years. After the closure of NAF
Detroit, 'Mich. in 1994, the VR-62
"Motowners" moved their operation
flying C-9s to NAS South Weymouth,
Mass. Renamed, "Mass Transport,"
the squadron transitioned to C-130
Hercules and operated out of NAS
South Weymouth until 1996 when
they moved to NAS Brunswick and
became the "NorEasters."
Given this history, their proposed
name change from "NorEasters" to
"Nomads" seems entirely appropriate.
Thomson thanked Casey for his "lead-
ership, consistency, and genuine con-
cern for the Sailors."

Military Appreciation Month


69y Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor

-A pril arid May are busy months
\ for military families. May
6 JLX(also known as "Military
Appreciation Month") encompasses
4,med Forces Day, Memorial Day,
Vad Military Spouse Appreciation
qay, and in 1986, April was desig-
irEted as the Month of the Military
Child.
:Many years.ago, when I had only
ieen writing my column for about
rlne months, my editor sent me
an email one day in May that basi-
C lly read, "Um, I think you missed
Military Spouse Appreciation Day..
PJiobably should write a, column
aiout that." At the time, I' was one
of-the only military spouses writ-
ib publicly about our lifestyle. It
was a major oversight to' not cover
Military Spouse Appreciation Day.
)et even after being raised in the
military and then marrying into
Si, I wasn't aware that there was a
military Spouse Appreciation Day (or
a Month of the Military Child and
Military Appreciation Month, for that
latter). Maybe that's because these
1 lidays hadn't made it to Hallmark's
elves yet.
:I wrote my column about Military
housee Appreciation' Day as the edi-
tor had suggested, and I began it; per-
ltps too cynically, by noting that no
oine, not even military families, seems
to notice these days anymore (than
tey notice National Train Day or
Iatibnal Ice Cream Day (no offense to
tiese days).
I 'have since changed my view,
Iprtly because the country has taken
riore notice due to the current inter-
est in military families and the wars
is Iraq and Afghanistan.

Appreciation Month, in particular,

U


Hey, Money Chic!
M husband will be returning froni


deployment soon. We had goals for our
money over deployment and paid down
our debts. We built a small savings and
have a little extra to spare. I've been
contacted by a high-ranking retired
navy guy who wants to sell me some
additional insurance, since we have
children and more responsibilities to
think about. He said it's both insurance
and an investment. That sounds pretty
good. Any thoughts MoneyChic?
MoneyChic says: It's widely known
in military circles that squadrons
returning from deployment often have
extra cash from tax-free combat pays
and other extra allowances that may
accumulate over deployment. This
makes military members prime targets
for sometimes-shady and aggressive
sales practices. Using military insignia
to sell insurance has been a problem in
the past. Keep in mind that often times


these investments charge a 50 percent
sales charge the first year. That is half
of the money invested that skipped
your nest egg and went straight to the
pocket of the salesman and/or invest-
ment firm.
New laws and rules have recently
been passed to protect military person-
nel, but you still need to keep up your
guard. Don't forget that you have siz-
able insurance policy through the mili-
tary that already covers the active duty
member, the spouse and the children.
If you feel this coverage isn't enough,
check out several different term-life
policies and compare prices. Invest
other money you had earmarked for
this in mutual funds on your own. Odds
are you will come out ahead this way
rather than investing in the combo life
insurance/investment vehicles being
peddled out there. Also, kudos to you
for clearing your debts over deployment
and having a plan.


To be honest, we have
probably overloaded
the public with too
many occasions, kind
of like having all your
relatives celebrating
birthdays in the same
month. Even I would
rather pay atten-
tion only to the all
encompassing Military '
Appreciation Month
than the individual ti-
tles for spouses and Sarah
children, with the
exception being Memorial
Day, which still, and always will,
deserves its own separate day..
I have also changed my cynical
view about people's lack of interest
in Military Appreciation because
I'm not sure I want Military Spouse
Appreciation Day to go the way of
other notable days, days that have
been overshadowed by mattress sales
(nothing is quite as offensive as a
Memorial Day "Mattress Blow Out
Sale"), discounts at the mall, and the
obligation to buy gifts and cards.
For now at least, Military
Appreciation' has not been swallowed
up by the commercial world. It is still
what important days should be: a
reminder to stop, reflect, and be mind-
ful. The Month of the Military Child
and Military Appreciation Month
serve to keep military family issues in
the public arena, if only because 'the
24-hour cable news media uses such
dates as a springboard for deciding
what topics to cover. My public speak-
ing agenda, for instance, increases
during the month of May.
My only concern is that as more
troops return home from overseas and
the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan end,
interest in military families might
wane again. Indeed, people feel most


connected to dates;
that cause a personal,
emotional reaction,
S which is why Dec. 7th
is (sadly) easily forgot-
ten by today's youth as
a day of remembrance
.for the attack on Pearl
Harbor in 1941, but
September 11th still
brings a chill, the mere
presence of the date col-
oring people's emotions
imiley and thoughts through-
S out the day (who can
date a check on Sept. 11 and not stop
and think?).
Of course, several generations from
now, even the date "September 11th"
won't have the same emotional impact
that it does for people who were alive
in 2001. This is the natural course
of history; days and events lose their
magnitude as the majority of people
have no personal connection to it any-
more. We rely on the remaining survi-
vors, museums, historians and mean-
ingful ceremonies to keep it alive in
people's minds.
For now, most everyone feels con-
nected to the issues of military fami-
lies because service, members are at
the forefront of a hot national news
topic. Some day, however, when less
reservists are activated and.the mili-
tary returns to its usual tempo, fewer
people will know someone who is serv-
ing "over'there." That's when dates
for 'Military Appreciation will become
most important, because that is when
they might be easily forgotten.
Except that, much like mothers on
Mother's Day, military families don't
necessarily crave attention. They
don't need cards or flowers, and cer-
tainly not mattress sales. They just
want you. to care. And that's some-
thing we all can do every day.

Command Master Chief (CMC)
Challenge May 4-8 in series of competitions
ineant to build camaraderie and physical
readiness.
;o CMDCM(AW/SW) Cameron Bracewell
:explained, "This week-long event brings
the command together for good Sailor fun
and competition. It involves everyone, both
military and civilians. This gets people out
'of their workspaces for a while where they


are able to put their workload behind them.
It's about esprit de corps, team building and
morale."
Bracewell extended a "BZ" (well done) to
event coordinators HM1(SW) Michael Morgan
and HM2 Jerry Horton for spearheading the
event. "I think a fun time was had by all. I
look forward to next year's CMC Challenge
and I hope it is even bigger ard more robust,"
he said.
Each directorate fielded their own team
of military and civilians to compete iii vari-
ous matches as they went after the CMC
Challenge Cup. The events included: a direc-
torate flag design competition; chess matches;
Texas Hold'em poker; volleyball, dodge ball
and basketball tournaments; a balloon toss;
obstacle course competitions; a push-up, sit-
up and pull-up relay; a blind canoe race; a 5k

run; the Izzy-Dizzy Relay, a punt, pass and
kick competition; and the always popular tug-
o-war.
Points were awarded for each event and
overall winners were selected as teams placed
in six levels. Bracewell presented the CMC
Challenge Cup at the command's spring pic-
nic May 8 to HM2 Jerry Horton who accepted
for the combined surgical services/resource
management directorates (DSS/DRM).
Horton said, "It was a huge effort from
the junior enlisted who found time to get out
there and support each event. The best event
for us was definitely the basketball tourna-
ment. DSS/DRM won handily in that cham-
pionship."
He added, "Basketball drew the biggest
crowd and the final game was the most antic-
ipated event between the DSS/DRM and the
Director for Administration (DFA) teams."
DFA finished second in overall CMC
Challenge Cup points. Despite being cut out
of the
winner's circle by the folks with the scal-
pels and calculators, DFA's Cmdr. Cheryl
McDonald said she thoroughly enjoyed the
competition. "It was good working with people
in the DFA departments. It was a good oppor-
tunity to have fun and share some laughs."
HM2 Jose Torres of DFA had his own take.


Digging at the DSS/DRM team a bit, he said.
"DFA will have a trophy next year as long
as the DSS plays by the rules! We'll definitely
be there for the repeat."
Torres, a coordinator for the obstacle course
competition, said the DFA's best event was
the tug-o-war. "We kicked tail and took
names. The DFA blew the other teams out of
the water in the obstacle course as well, beat-
ing them by about 52 seconds."
Responding to Torres' insidious implida-
tion of foul play, Horton said, on behalf of the
DSS/DRM team, "We didn't count the points.
We just collected the trophy!" *
Capt. Denise Graham, director, Clinical
Support Services (DCSS), unsuccessfully
defended the CMC Challenge Cup they won
last year. She said, "This year I made it a pri-
ority to attend the most events my schedule
would allow. The CMC Challenge is a huge
morale booster for the staff, but more imput-
tantly, it provides an opportunity across i1l
my departments to work as a team for the
entire directorate. Everyone needs to keep
an eye on DCSS next year, since our primary
goal is to take back the cup and there wjll
be no more DFA dumping DCSS's leading
canoe!"
It looks like the top finishers of 20(9
already have a lot of people gunning for then
next year.

Honoring heroes


By Chaplain (Lt.) Buster Williams

What does it take to
become a modern day
hero? What does it
mean to be heroic? I don't know
who your hero is or if you even
have one. Many people can hon-
estly say their dad or mom is
their hero.
I grew up watching the super-
heroes battle evil in comic books
and on Saturday morningtele-
vision. Superman and Batman
were always favorites of mine, but
I liked plenty of others as well. I
liked the fact that these superhe-
roes would battle against the forc-
es of darkness and overcome them
even against the longest"odds. I
also liked the fact that they need-
ed to keep their real identities
secret so as not to put friends and
family in harms way.
I guess it made me think, "You
never know, anyone could be a


CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


superhero." Looking back, I real-
ize that people with superpow-
ers don't really exist but that
doesn't mean that real heroes
don't exist.
But how can they be identified
so we can properly honor them?
I would suggest that heroes have
several qualities in common that
make them heroic.
The first quality is that heroes
struggle and overcome the real
evil that exists in our world. They
consistently think about life from
a moral perspective.
A gefluine hero cannot exist in
the realm where there is no such
thing as good and evil and all
is relative. If that were the case,
there would be no battles to fight
and no temptations to resist.
So Superman has his Lex


t7
I-

Chaplain (Lt.) Buster Williams
Luther and Batman has his
Joker.


Real life heroes also have.to do
battle against evil.
Secondly, real heroes consis-
tently demonstrate heroism by
living sacrificially. What I mean
is that real heroes have no room
for selfishness and. are always
willing to give up what is right-
fully theirs so others receive a
benefit that they couldn't possibly
achieve for themselves. This is
what it means to be heroic. It's
tough because it's human nature
to think of ourselves first and
above all else. But the real hero
has trained himself or herself
to overcome natural tendencies
towards selfishness and is will-
ing to even pay the ultimate sac-
rifice laying down their lives for
the sake of others.
So, who are our modern day


heroes and how can we honor
them? I would suggest that a
great starting place is to recog-
nize all those who have paid the
ultimate price for the freedom we
have as Americans. We should
also honor their spouses and fam-
ily members who were willing to
allow their loved one to be put
in harms way. Of course, there
are other sacrifices that should be
honored as well, like being sepa-
rated from a loved on during long
deployments. True heroes also
include first-responders like fire-
fighters and police officers who
daily put their lives on the line for
the sake of others. Of course, from
a Christian perspective, this all
makes perfect sense, because our
ultimate hero is Jesus Christ who
gave His own life to save those
who could not save themselves.
But that is another story.
Thank a hero today for their life
of sacrifice on our behalf!

Bench press

competition draws

NAS Jacksonville's

strongest lifters

ly AWVAN Scott Beach
Staff Writer


kA active duty weightlifters from NAS
Jacksonville participated in the
L .annual Bench Press Competition
hosted by the Fitness Source May 19. The
competition had two classes, one for males
and another for females.
The event consisted of three rounds. Each
competitor was only allowed one attempt
at one repetition of a weight of his or her
choice per round. To make the event fair
to people of all sizes, the competition was
scored on a power to weight ratio where
thebest of their three benches would be
divided by their weight to come up with
the overall
score.
This com-
petition is
about more
than just
winning
though.

nager Chris
Crossman
explained,

than just do their mundane workout all
the time. This gives them a timeline where
they know they have to be somewhere to
achieve their goal."
:This was evident in the way the com-
petitors who in the beginning were strang-
ers' to. each other, came together to push
their fellow weightlifters to put up as much
weight as possible.

Handziak went on to win with his next lift.
In the end the top three finishers in the
male division were HM2 Richard Handziak
from the Naval Hospital finishing first
with a lift of 365 lbs giving him a power to
weight ratio of 1.91.
Finishing in an unbelievably close second
was AS1 Adrian Cornwall of VP-30 with
a bench of 425 lbs and power to weight
ration of 1.89. Third place went to AT3
Ron Walling from Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast (FRCSE).
In the women's category the top three
finishers were Sgt. Sharee Wilson from
the Center for Naval Aviation Technical
Training Unit Jax taking first with a lift
of 115 lbs, Ensign Elana Phipps from YP-
30 benched 95. lbs, and Terry Houser of
FRCSE put up a respectable 95 lbs as well.
The Fitness Source puts on events like
these throughout the year for all aspects of
fitness. Their next event will be an overall
power lift competition consisting of bench
press, squats, and the dead lift.

Poll shows most Sailors



navigating through



strained economy


By MCC(SW) Maria Yager
Navy Personnel
Command Public Affairs


N avy Personnel
Command released
the results of its
2009 Navy Financial
Health Quick Poll, May 13,
that shows more Sailors
than not are safely riding
out the nation's current
troubled economy.
"The poll helps to reas-
sess financial stresses as
a result of the recent eco-
nomic downturn," said
Kathy Wells, policy manag-
er for the Navy's Personal
Financial Management
(PFM) program. "The poll
was a follow-up to the May
2008 Financial Health
Quick Poll. The main areas
of focus were financial con-
dition, residence and PCS
(permanent change of sta-
tion) moves, both Navywide
and by Navy region."
According to the polls,
more than 85 percent of
officers and 60 percent of
enlisted Sailors continue
to describe their financial
condition as "very comfort-
able" or "able to make ends
meet." About one-third of
enlisted Sailors indicate
they "occasionally have
some difficulty" and about
9 percent are "keeping their
heads above water" and one
percent are "in ovei their
heads."
Help is available for
Sailors feeling financial
strain. The Navy's PFM
program provides classes
and assistance through the
Fleet and Family Support,
Centers (FFSCs) on finan -
cial management, including
the wise use of credit and
home buying strategies.
Rufus Bundrige, a FFSC
Personal Financial Manager
at NAS Jacksonville, said
he is seeing the same
trends among the Sailors
he serves.
"Our commands at NAS
Jacksonville are proactive
when it comes to personal
financial education. The
more Sailors take advan-
tage of our free financial
workshops, the more they'll
be able to make smart deci-.
sions about budgeting and
investing what they earn. I
also recommend free classes'
conducted by VyStar Credit
Union and base legal ser-
vices," said Bundrige.
FFSCs also offer a new
course entitled Million
Dollar Sailor that is a per-
sonal wealth-building pro-
gram for Sailors and their
families. Designed as a two-
day training course, Million
Dollar Sailor assists Sailors
and their families to navi-
gate successfully through
the transitions of Navy life
and the financial challenges
that accompany them.
According to the poll,
more than 40 percent of
enlisted Sailors sought
financial counseling in the
past 12 months, most com-
monly from their command
financial specialist.
Although the poll shows
Sailors are weathering the
current economic storm,
63 percent reported they
are contributing less to a
savings account to pay for
necessities, compared to 59
percent in May 2008.
Fifty-three percent are
saving less to make credit
card payments, compared
with 48 percent in May
2008. Similarly, 28 percent
of enlisted and 19 percent
of officers regretted a deci-
sion to take on more debt,
compared with 22 percent
and 13 percent, respectively
in May 2008.
Financial health is impor-


tant in the Navy because
poor finances can impact
readiness and is the lead-
a- --------


ing cause of Navy secu-
rity clearance denials and
revocations. Sailors should
notify their chain of com-
mand if they are suffer-
ing from financial stress.
Leaders say supervisors


should ensure the individ-
ual receives financial coun-
seling and follows through
with the recommendations
of that counseling. The
chain of command can also
provide the individual with

The Battle of Midway


From Naval History
& Heritage Command

T he strong Japanese thrust in
the Central Pacific to occupy
L Midway Island was led by a
f(ur-carrier force, supported by heavy
iiits of the Adm. Yamamoto's First
Fleet and covered by a diversionary
carrier raid on Dutch Harbor in the
Aeutian Islands.
"This attack was met by a greatly
oxt-numbered United States carri-
er-'force composed of Task Force 17
(Rear Admiral Frank J. Fletcher)
vWith Yorktown; Task Force 16 (Rear
Admiral R. A. Spruance) with Hornet
ald Enterprise; and by Navy, Marine
Corps, and Army air units based on
Midway Island.
Planes from Midway located and
attacked ships of the Japanese force
600 miles to the west (June 3). The
Japanese carrier force respond-
ed (June 4) by sending its'aircraft
t5 attack defensive installations
on Midway. Concentrating on the
destruction of Midway's air forces, the
JApanese carriers were caught unpre-
pared for the U.S. carrier air attack
that began at 0930 with the heroic,
bVt unsuccessful effort of Torpedo
*Squadron 8. The Japanese force was
h-t in full force at 1030 when U.S.
1?vy dive bombers hit and sank the
carriers Akagi, Kaga and Soryu. A
Japanese counter attack at noon, and
another two hours later, damaged
Yorktown with bombs and torpedoes
sq'severely that she was abandoned.
'In the late afternoon, U.S. carri-

center. Take offs averaged one every 30 seconds.


er air forces hit the Japanese force
again, sinking Hiryu, the fourth and
last of the Japanese carriers in action.
With control of the air irretriev-
ably lost, the Japanese retired under
the attack of Midway-based aircraft
(June 5) and of carrier aircraft (June
6) in which the heavy cruiser Mikuma
was sunk and the Mogami severe-
ly damaged. Japanese losses totaled
two heavy and two light carriers, one
heavy cruiser, 258 aircraft, and a


large percentage of their experienced
carrier pilots.
American losses were 40 shore-
based and 92 carrier aircraft, the
destroyer Hammann (June 6) and the
carrier Yorktown (June 7).
The decisive defeat administered to
the Japanese put an end to their suc-
cessful offensive that began with the
attack on Pearl Harbor and effectively
turned the tide of World War II in the
Pacific.

region's fund drive this year," he stated.
Naval Hospital Jax Commanding Officer
Capt. Bruce Gillingham also praised his team
for heading up such a successful fund drive.
"To look back and realize that we've not only
met our goal, but shattered it, just proves
it was another example of good leadership
to choose the right people to do the job. Lt.
Akoto, HMC Dean and HM1 Myers did a
wonderful job," said Gillingham. "I think the
true test of any organization is how it comes
together in a time of need and in very dif-
ficult economic times, to be able to reach out
and exceed the goal as much as all the com-
mands did, speaks volumes of this mission."
Also on hand at the celebration to thank
the volunteers for their support dur-
ing the fund drive was Commander, Navy
Region Southeast Chief of Staff Capt. Matt
Straughan. "It's the volunteers who make
this happen and who provide their co-workers
with every opportunity to give to this impor-
tant cause that helps Sailors, Marines and
their families during a time of need," said
Straughan. "Out of 33 commands participat-
ing in the fund drive, 19 exceeded their goals
by 50 percent. Eight commands doubled their
goals. The top three commands were VP-30
with a goal of $20,904 which raised more
than $45,000; Guantanamo Bay, Cuba with
a goal of $15,600 which raised $34,000 and
Naval Hospital Jax with their goal of $18,936
which raised $31,500."
To help out with the celebration, two
Jacksonville Roar Cheerleaders and
Jacksonville Jaguars Mascot Jaxson de
Ville signed autographs and assisted with
a special drawing to pick the winners of

aways that were donated by the Jacksonville

VP-30: Golden Wrench and Safety 'S' awards


From Page 1


the Atlantic, Pacific and
reserve force that demon-
strates the greatest excellence
in aircraft maintenance.
Officially known as the
AVCM Donald M. Neal
Aircraft Maintenance
Award, the Golden Wrench
was initiated in 1965 by the
Chief of Naval Operations
and sponsored by Lockheed
Martin.
VP-30 Maintenance
Officer Lt. Cmdr. Daryl
Pierce, credited the men
and women of the mainte-
nance department.
"This achievement is a
clear testament of the pro-
fessionalism, dedication to


quality maintenance, and the
'can-do' spirit that is preva-
lent among our Pro's Nest
maintainers," said Pierce.
Fite agreed, "Being
awarded the Golden
Wrench a first ever for a
fleet replacement squadron
- is extremely rewarding.
When I assumed command,
the squadron had failed
the previous two mainte-
nance inspections and the
potential for shutting down
squadron operations was
pending.
"Our entire command
pulled together, work-
ing long hours and week-
ends. We got the squadron
back in step, to operate


safely and perform main-
tenance by the book. Our
entire maintenance culture
changed and we rededicat-
ed ourselves to focus on the
details," said Fite.
The skipper concluded,
"Not only did VP-30 have
41 of 41 programs on track
with 'zero .discrepancies' on
its most recent Commanderv
Naval Air Forces Aviation
Maintenance Inspection -
but the Pro's Nest finished,
it off by winning the Golden.
Wrench. I'm extremely
proud of our maintainers
- they are, indeed, true pro-
fessionals and most deserv-
ing of our nickname, the
Pro's Nest."

SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


USNS Comfort:

Reflections on ship life

By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor


ntil now, life aboard a Navy ship is mysterious
to me. I always wondered what it was like for my
husband. My embed aboard the USNS Comfort
answered many questions, such as, "How do you get into
the top rack?" Answer: become an Olympic gymnast.
There are many things that struck me about ship life
Like the seemingly constant chatter over the ship's PA
'system. Whether announcing decks secured for flight oper-
ations, reveille, 'serial call' (I still don't know what that is)
.or paging individuals, there was constant communication.
There are some things common to all ships such as
drills. The Comfort had both fire drills and lifeboat drills
while I was aboard.
Let me explain a little about the ship's structure. It has
.a main deck called the "first deck." Each level below that
:is numbered successively second deck, third deck, etcet-
-era. Decks above the first deck are labeled 01 Level, 02
Level and so forth.
In the event of a lifeboat drill I was to muster (report)
'with the public affairs office (PAO) on deck four where I
would grab a life jacket and proceed to my assigned life-
boat on the 03 level. In case you missed the subtlety that
was seven flights of stairs that Sailors call "ladders."
It was a proud moment when I stood in formation
panting.
SAn impressive part of ship life is UNREP (underway
replenishment) where a supply ship comes alongside to
deliver supplies. I discovered amazing things about this
process. I thought both ships would drop anchor then
transfer goods. In reality, both ships are moving at about
12 knots throughout the entire process and approxi-
.mately 165 feet apart. Once aligned, USNS Perry 'shot
lines across' that would connect the two ships and provide
for the transfer of fuel lines. Literally, a boatswain's mate
"'hoots what resembles a very large bean bag with a line
attachedd. The mariners on the Comfort scrambled to catch
S he line, pulling it across and securing it to the ship:
/i During the fueling process, the helicopter from the
:omfort flew between the two vessels transferring pallets
S:f supplies. It is an amazing process.
' I also spent an hour in the scullery with Sailors who
?ere "cranking" which is when junior enlisted are tasked
Sthe galley. Though trained as hospital corpsmen these
!ailors had a blast making the best of washing dishes.
:5anks for the fun! '
Broadcasting from the ship drove home another aspect
I f deployment missing family. Crew members were
Sivited to send.a "shout out" to family members on my
.oadcast. The response was huge. Officer and enlisted,
I iale and female, met me in the public affairs office to
end their messages home. I realized how very difficult
,t is for our service members to miss special days. Many
;choked back tears as they expressed their love...and so
Xdid I.

From Naval Safety Center
Public Affairs

As the Summer
Safety '09 campaign
kicks off with the
approaching Memorial Day
weekend, the Naval Safety
Center (NSC) is making
myriad resources available
to commands so they can
tailor their individual safe-
ty campaigns.
The new NSC campaign
provides tools such as pre-
sentations, articles, videos
and interactive discussion
aids to promote the type
of risk management that
will allow Sailors to enjoy
these activities successful-
ly. Campaign materials can
be found at www.safetycen-
ter.navy.mil/seasonal/sum-
mer09/index.asp.
The focus of this year's
summer safety campaign is
on enjoying off-duty time
with family and friends.
Many Sailors take advan-
tage of the warm weather


to plan vacations. They
head to the beach or to the
mountains. But they need
to do it smartly and safely
because summer brings the
following increased risks:
More people on the
roadways
More water recreation
More sporting activities
More partying
"Risk' management is,
largely common sense,"


said John Willian

NEXs pull select Blue Ember Gas Grills from shelves"


By Kristine Sturkie
NEXCOM PAO


Fiesta Grills, in conjunction with
the U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission (CPSC),
issued a consumer alert on two mod-
els of its Blue Ember Gas Grills.
The grills can be assembled improp-
erly, exposing the gas burner hoses to
excessive heat, posing fire and burn
hazards to consumers. The affect-
ed models have the style numbers
FG50057 and FG50069. NEXs began
selling the grills in 2007.
The model and serial numbers are
printed on a rating plate label on the
rear of the grill. The cabinet style

grill has two doors and is silver-col-
ored and black or silver-colored and
gray. "Blue Ember" is printed on the
grill's hood.
Consumers should immediately stop
using the grills and inspect the burn-
er hoses to make sure they have been
properly assembled.
If the hose is to the rear of the
installed heat shield, the grill has
been improperly assembled and con-
sumers should contact Fiesta. for
replacement hoses, assembly instruc-
tions, and if necessary, for assistance
in examining the grill.
For additional information, contact
Fiesta at (866) 740-7849 between 7

How do I get my security deposit back?
n 1 II .* -


By LI. .g. Molly uennison
Judge Advocate General Corps

It has probably hap-
pened to everyone at
some point. Move-out
day arrives. You have
a million things to think
about: packing, traveling to
your new home, checking
in at a new base, personal
property office paperwork.
You think the place looks
fine. That "normal wear
and tear" clause will prob-
ably cover that little scuff-
on the wall, but the place
looks great, clean, no dam-
age. You paid your rent on
time. You were a model
tenant. You're sure that
the check for your security
deposit will be coming to
you in about a week.
But it doesn't. A month
goes by, You start to make
some calls. Finally the
check comes but it is miss-
ing $100 or $200. Or even
worse, t doesn't come at
all. Instead you are cited a
list of damages that never
happened; charged for
damage to common areas
of the building that were
not covered in your lease;
or charged $250 to clean a
refrigerator. So what can
service members, who are
constantly on the move, do
to prevent this?
Get all the facts up front.
Man leases state "nor-
mal we r and tear" will not


result in loss of security
deposit. This vague phrase
can be interpreted in many
different ways and often to
the service member's det-
riment. Get a list of what
the landlord expects from
you upon move-out and an
accounting of what it will
cost you if these things are
not completed. Ask about
hanging pictures and paint-
ing walls. Do this during
the lease negotiation and
make this part of the lease
itself. You are equal par-
ties to the lease agreement
so don't be afraid to ask
questions and follow your
instincts. Does it sound odd
that it would cost $300 to
clean a refrigerator? If the
price seems high, discuss
something more reasonable
with your potential land-
lord.
Think about protecting
your deposit on the day you
move in.
Many people may not
even think about getting
their deposit back until
after they've moved out. On
the day you move-in, before
the landlord hands you the
keys, do a walk-through
together. Insist upon it.
Make sure you and the
landlord both note, in writ-
ing, every part of the home
that is damaged and cannot
be attributed to you.

tures...

dation for future medical
teams delivering health
care to detainees.
The DSG commented
that the concept of "fam-
ily centered care" involves
full engagement of Navy
Medicine assets highly
skilled providers, the best
technology, and facility
upgrades such as those he
toured at NH Jax.
Cmdr. Tim Barnes, senior
health facilities planning
& project officer, briefed
the DSG on the upgrades
at NH Jax, particularly the
progress on the hospital's
$35.8 million surgical and
administrative suite addi-
tion and other floor-by-floor
renovations. These projects
promise a greatly improved-
environment of care for
patients and staff. Just a
few weeks ago, the hospi-
tal learned it will receive
American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act fund-
ing of $27.2 million for the
renovation of the third floor
and parts of the fifth and
first floors. The additional
funding includes improve-
ments to intensive care;
recovery; endoscopy; respi-
ratory 'care; nuclear medi-


cine and magnetic reso-
nance imaging units as well,
as the ear, nose & threat
clinics and pharmacy. This
project will allow for an
improved hospital entrance
and patient drop-off area
when the project is com-
pleted in early 2011.
Cullison said that one
priority of his boss, Surgeon
General of the Navy Vice
Adm. Adam Robinson,
is enhancing profession-
al training and research
in Navy Medicine. Cmdr,
Carole Daniels, recently
named NH Jax Coordinator
of Professional Education,
briefed the DSG on the
expectations and goals that
Capt. Gillingham has out-
lined for her as she stands
up this new directorate.
"Daniels and her team
will build the infrastruc-
ture to take our, academic
efforts to the next level,"
said Gillingham. "She will
be a voice at our executive
steering council to make
sure that we devote the nec-
essary effort and resources
to establish Naval Hospital
Jacksonville as a premier
site of academic and profes-
sional development."

Even if you've both
agreed on paper that pre-
existing damages are not
your responsibility, no evi-
aence is more compelling
than pictures. Take photos
(or video tape) and date
them. Take pictures when
you move in and pictures
when you move out.
Fix what you break and
be in contact with your
landlord throughout the
repair.
Sometimes damages will
happen. Take responsibil-
ity for them and fix what
you break. This puts you
in control of the cost to find
the best price. Talk to your
landlord throughout the
process. Let him/her see
the repairs and document
that they've been approved.
Remember, you*only have
to restore the damaged item
to the state it was in before
it was damaged. Damage to
a Formica countertop is not
a free ticket for the land-
lord to insist on a granite
replacement.
Do two move-out walk-
throughs.
Walk through #1: This
is crucial. Have the land-
lord come to the home
before you've paid your last
month's rent. The fact that
you still owe rent to him/
her will put you on equal
footing with your landlord.

MOVEOUT: Know the law, pertaining to deposits


From Page 15


Tell the landlord to note in writing any-
thing that needs to be cleaned or repaired.
Have the lease and the list of what is
expected upon move-out with you at this
time. Be fair, friendly and reasonable about
the landlord's requests. Don't squabble
over whether something is "clean enough."
Walk through #2: On the day you hand
over the keys, do your final walk-through.
Have the landlord acknowledge that every-
thing you had discussed at the lastmeeting
has been taken care of, and then discuss
the deposit. Ask the landlord to bring the
check that day. This is often not required
by law and the landlord may refuse. If you
do not get the check that day, ask when it
will be sent to you and make sure the land-
lord has your new address.
Know the law. Most states have laws
that set requirements on when landlords
have to return deposits. Here are the
guidelines for Florida and Georgia.
Florida: If the landlord does not intend
to make a claim on the deposit, it must
"3 ---------_______ H - ^ -


be returned to you within 15 days of the
end of your lease. If the landlord intends
to make a claim on the deposit, he/she
has 30 days to justify the claim in writing
by certified mail. If the landlord does not
give notice during those 30 days, he/she
has forfeited the right to make a claim on
the deposit and it must be returned to you.
Section 83.49, F.S.
Georgia: It is required that the landlord
provide a list of existing damages that the
tenant is not responsible for upon move in
and that the two parties sign this docu-
ment. The law also requires the two par-
ties sign a list of damages within five days
of move-out. The landlord then has 30 days
to return the deposit. State of Georgia

region's fund drive this year," he stated.
Naval Hospital Jax Commanding Officer
Capt. Bruce Gillingham also praised his team
for heading up such a successful fund drive.
"To look back and realize that we've not only
met our goal, but shattered it, just proves
it was another example of good leadership
to choose the right people to do the job. Lt.
Akoto, HMC Dean and HM1 Myers did a
wonderful job," said Gillingham. "I think the
true test of any organization is how it comes
together in a time of need and in very dif-
ficult economic times, to be able to reach out
and exceed the goal as much as all the com-
mands did, speaks volumes of this mission."
Also on hand at the celebration to thank
the volunteers for their support dur-
ing the fund drive was Commander, Navy
Region Southeast Chief of Staff Capt. Matt
Straughan. "It's the volunteer. who make
this happen and who provide their co-workers
with every opportunity to give to this impor-
tant cause that helps Sailors, Marines and
their families during a time of need," said
Straughan. "Out of 33 commands participat-
ing in the fund drive, 19 exceeded their goals
by 50 percent. Eight commands doubled their
goals. The top three commands were VP-30
with a goal of $20,904 which raised more
than $45,000; Guantanamo Bay, Cuba with
a goal of $15,600 which raised $34,000 and
Naval Hospital Jax with their goal of $18,936
which raised $31,500."
To help out with the celebration, two
Jacksonville Roar Cheerleaders and,
Jacksonville Jaguars Mascot Jaxson de
Ville signed autographs and assisted with
a special drawing to pick the winners of
the NMCRS Fund Drive grand prize give-
aways that were donated by the Jacksonville
Jaguars. Winning two season tickets to all
home games was first place winner Latasha

the Atlantic, Pacific and
reserve force that demon-
strates the greatest excellence
in aircraft maintenance.
Officially known as the
AVCM Donald M. Neal
Aircraft Maintenance
Award, the Golden Wrench
was initiated in 1965 by the
Chief of Naval Operations
and sponsored by Lockheed
Martin.
VP-30 Maintenance
Officer Lt. Cmdr. Daryl
Pierce, credited the men
and women of the mainte-
nance department.
"This achievement is a
clear testament of the pro-
fessionalism, dedication to


quality maintenance, and the
'can-do' spirit that is preva-
lent among our Pro's Nest
maintainers," said Pierce.
Fite agreed, "Being
awarded the Golden
Wrench a first ever for a
fleet replacement squadron
- is extremely rewarding.
When I assumed command,
the squadron had failed
the previous two mainte-
nance inspections and the
potential for shutting down
squadron operations was
pending.
"Our entire command
pulled together, work-
ing long hours and week-
ends. We got the squadron
back in step, to operate


safely and perform main-
tenance by the book. Our
entire maintenance culture
changed and we rededicat-
ed ourselves to focus on the
details," said Fite.
The skipper concluded,
"Not only did VP-30 have
41 of 41 programs on track
with 'zero .discrepancies' on,
its most recent Commander-
Naval Air Forces Aviation
Maintenance Inspection -
but the Pro's Nest finished.
it off by winning the Golden-
Wrench. I'm extremely
proud of our maintainers
- they are, indeed, true pro-
fessionals and most deserv-
ing of our nickname, the
Pro's Nest."
