U.S. Navy photo
Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 58 (VR-58) was established at NAS Jacksonville Nov. 1 1977, and received the first of
its three McDonnell Douglas C-9B Skytrain aircraft in 1978. As a Naval Air Reserve Force squadron, the "Sunseekers" of
VR-58 provide seven-day-a-week, around the clock, worldwide logistics support to all Department of Defense agencies.
The squadron transitioned from the C-9B Skytrain to the Boeing C-40A "Clipper" in March of 2002.
Military families creative about 'family'
By Sarah Smiley
Ever since my oldest son, Ford
(8), was a baby, I've had a nag-
ging sense that he is smarter
than me. As an infant, he looked at
me in a way unlike any of his sib-
lings. His thoughtful stare was a lit-
tle intimidating. It was as if he was
an old soul trapped in the pink, wrin-
kly skin of a baby.
When Ford was 2 and his dad was
on deployment, I took him to a depart-
ment store where I got into an argu-
ment with one of the sales people. I
drove home crying.
"Why are you sad?" Ford asked. He
had been speaking clearly since his
"The woman at the store made me
sad, Ford. That's all," I said.
"Mom, do you know that no one can
make you sad except yourself?"
I peered in the rearview mirror just
to be sure Sigmund Freud had not
replaced that my toddler strapped in
his car seat.
And his memory! There is no get-
ting around Ford's memory. Often
parents have a good four to five years
grace period when their child's long-
term memory is not well developed
- so any parenting mistakes are soon
forgotten. This was never the case
with Ford. He can recall every mis-
take I've made since around the time
of his second birthday.
Someday these traits will make
Ford very successful. But for now, I
worry, perhaps needlessly, that they
separate him from his peers. While
Ford's younger brother, Owen (6),
finds nothing more amusing than a
well positioned whoopee cushion, Ford
is more likely to inquire about how
the whoopee cushion works.
FROM THE HOMEFRONT
So I was not sur-
prised when Ford
picked Thomas Edison
to study for the second-
grade Biography Night,
even if I did try (unsuc-
cessfully) to have him
consider someone more
Ford didn't care what
anyone else thought of
his choice. His mind
was set. It usually is.
(There he goes again
teaching his mom a thing or two!)
What surprised me about Biography
Night was the fact that Ford was feel-
ing the absence of his extended rela-
Biography Night is a big deal. The
kids rehearse for weeks, dress in char-
acter and deliver memorized speeches
for an audience full of parents and
Because we are military, we have
not lived in the same town as our rel-
atives for more than a decade. There
would be no grandparents in the audi-
ence for Ford.
So in April, a full two months before
Biography Night, Ford decided to
invite the neighbors on either side
of us. One is a widow in her 80s and
the other is a widower in his early
90s. (Once, when I made a plate a
brownies for Valentine's Day, I asked
Owen to take one to each neighbor.
He said, "Why don't I take both to
[the man] and then he can take them
over to [the woman]," which makes
Owen pretty darn smart and percep-
Ford made invitations for the two
neighbors and deliv-
ered them that day.
Biography Night was
still many weeks away,
so I worried that the
neighbors would forget.
I begged again for some
of Ford's grandparents
to make the trip, but
with work schedules it
The morning of
Biography Night and
before he left for school,
Ford ran next door to see if the neigh-
bors remembered. I watched out my
kitchen window as he rang one door-
bell and then waited patiently on the
stoop. But it was still early and our
neighbors were not up yet. Ford left
for school uncertain if they would
That evening, Dustin and I sat in
the auditorium while Ford did last
minute preparations with his class-
mates behind stage. Through the back
doors, I saw our neighbors come in.
My heart leapt as if they were our
own family. I went backstage to tell
Ford. His smile was ear to ear, and
for a moment I caught a glimpse of
that little baby who, for all the seri-
ousness of his eyes, could still light up
a room with his half-moon smile.
And I was reminded then that no
matter how old or smart we are -
everyone likes to have family in the
audience. For military families, the
idea of "family" is extended to any-
one who will take us in as their own.
Lucky for Ford and for me we
have two neighbors who have done

W ith the Walt Disney
Company offering the active
duty military and their

there has never been a better time to
visit a Disney park. (For more infor-

With our close proximity to Walt
Disney World, it's convenient to visit
and visit often. But with this year's

the next year, I have so much to share
with you that I have decided to do it
in a two part series.
This first part will touch on

part will be on Disney's California

Disneyland is Uncle Walt's origi-
nal park and I am always pleasantly
surprised by the new rides, attrac-

place since I was last there. Kids
and adults alike will enjoy the new
Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage.
The submarines that I loved so much
as a kid have returned, but this time
with a spin that is sure to capture the
imagination of children everywhere.
I was also surprised to find changes
in two of my favorite rides. Pirates of
the Caribbean has been lengthened
and updated with characters from the
2003 film. I found some new thrills
and new surprises waiting around
Even more surprising was The
Haunted Mansion. My family and
I visited between Halloween and
Christmas, and were delighted to find
The Haunted Mansion completely
redecorated in the theme of the movie
"The Nightmare Before Christmas.
During our trip to California, we
stayed just down the street from
Disneyland at the Sheraton Garden
Grove. This brand new hotel stands
out with great amenities, spacious
rooms, transportation to and from
Disneyland (for a fee), and most
importantly, a great place to rest after
your hectic day of park hopping.

Something was different when we

we couldn't describe.

something dreamlike about being at

Hey MoneyChic!: I graduated from high school last
year and joined the Navy. Now that I'm transitioning into
"adulthood" I've been thinking about my credit score. I was
turned down for a gas card recently. The company said
something about not having enough credit history. How do
I go about establishing one?
MoneyChic says: I am not a fan of encouraging young
people to start using credit cards, even if it's to establish
credit history. It's best to pay for your gas in cash, but to
answer your question about establishing a credit history,
this should help.
First, it only takes about six months to create a cred-
it history. This information comes from Craig Watts,
who works for FICO (the company that makes the credit
scores.) He says that you need to have a credit or loan
account and pay on it for six months to show credit activ-
ity. A good starting place would be setting up a secured
credit card at your local credit union for example. Recent
activity on this account will be reported to the credit
bureaus and begin the process of establishing your score.
Making monthly payments, on time is critical if you are
establishing your history.
Take this with the utmost seriousness. Often time's lend-
ers look for a history of financial irresponsibility. It's easier
for them to understand when a young adult has a lack of
credit history, due to less life experience. Everyone has to
start somewhere. Begin with this secured credit card and
make your payments on time, every month. Good Luck!

"To become a doctor, is
to accept one of the high-
est callings in this world,"
Robinson said. "To be
responsible for the health
and well-being of fellow
human beings, to be a con-
fident and a friend during
times of joy and times of
desolation is both an honor
and a burden."
He also reminded them
that the responsibilities
they shoulder are especial-
ly demanding in times of
war and "we truly are in
a time of war." The Surgeon
General also asked for
humility in this life-long
"As you finish your train-
ing although you wish to
heal you can not. You've
been told only God can heal.
But make no mistake about
this you can always help.
You can always be there
for your patients and their
families," he said.
"The spiritual bond we
maintain with our patients
is often the only salve that
is present. This bond is
fragile. This bond is sacred.
This bond must be nurtured
to remain vibrant and effec-
tive," he said. "The physi-
cian who learns this under-
stands the essence of the
healing art. That is the art
of medicine. That person is
truly a master physician."

Navy Working Uniform now authorized off base
By MCCS(SW/AW) Bill Houlihan
Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Public Affairs
The Navy Working Uniform (NWU)
is now authorized for wear off-base,
during routine stops and at eat-
ing establishments during the prescribed
In NAVADMIN 188/09, Chief of Naval
Operations (CNO), Adm. Gary Roughead,
expanded the occasion for wear policy,
which has been in place for six months.
Roughead consistently stated that the
possibility for changing the policy hinged
upon a timetable driven by the Navy's
Once the leadership mess provided
feedback to Master Chief Petty Officer of
the Navy (MCPON) (SS/SW) Rick West,
indicating that Sailors across the Navy
understood the correct manner to wear
the uniform, it was understood that he
would recommend to CNO and Chief of
Naval Personnel (CNP), Vice Adm. Mark
Ferguson, when the time was right to allow
the uniform off base.
According to West, that time is now.
"Communication from the Force and Fleet
Master Chiefs has been unanimously posi-
tive. Our Sailors are ready to introduce
this uniform to the American public," said
West. "That's what CNO was waiting for
and this decision is a direct result of chief
petty officer (CPO) feedback. It's been sin-
cerely gratifying to be able to watch this
process work as well as it has."
The policy differs from the language in
NAVADMIN 343/08 in that, up to now,
routine stops were not allowed. That meant
Sailors were prohibited from visits to child
care centers, gas stations, brief stops at
convenience stores or banks. Now those
stops are authorized.
"Our Sailors are proud of this uniform,"
said MCPON. "This has been the number
one feedback item from the fleet since I
took office, (Dec. 12, 2008) and they have
not been shy about their wishes to wear
this uniform in town. Our Sailors have
been trained to wear it and will wear it
West underscored the importance of
waiting for the right time to open up the
occasion for wear policy. He said that while
many wondered why the original wear pol-
icy was put in place, it was important to
ensure every Sailor knew how to wear it
before allowing it outside the lifelines of
ships and bases. He also said he kept a
close eye on various regions to see how
aggressive leadership was in training the
fleet to wear the NWU.
"I watched Navy Region Mid-Atlantic
and I saw how the chiefs in that region
were engaged in getting this right from
day one. The training was consistent and
it was effective. They deserve a lot of credit
for the expanded policy, because they did
it the right way in the largest fleet con-
centration area. Leaderships engagement
coupled with Sailor feedback was what
drove this recommendation (to expand the
policy) to CNP and CNO."
The revision includes aligning the NWU
and Camouflage Utility Uniforms (CUUs)
occasion for wear policies and offers more
flexibility than the rules governing the
wear of other working uniforms.
The transition to the NWU will contin-
ue as stipulated in NAVADMIN 343/08.
Multiple regions across the United States
and overseas are still not wearing the
NWU due to distribution constraints, so
West pointed out that the manner of wear
policy is even more critical now as Sailors
transfer to those areas.
"We have people rolling from one region
to another and coming from boot camp,
wearing the NWU. I'm looking to them as
the Sailors who are going to meet the stan-
dards as set forth in the NAVADMIN and
the Uniform Regulations, but more impor-
tantly, I expect the CPO mess to maintain
the standards expected of our high caliber
Sailors," said West.
The NAVADMIN also states that wear
of the NWU/CUU will be restricted inside
the National Capital Region (NCR). Navy
personnel on staffs located in or visiting
the NCR will not be able to wear the NWU
or CCU as their uniform of the day.
"I look forward to seeing the public's
reaction to our new uniform," said West.
"And I know our Sailors are eager to get
out there and show it off."

ceremony at the NAS Jax BOQ Pavilion.
NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack
Scorby Jr. was the guest speaker.
Green, a native of Middlefield, Ohio is
the son of George and Joie Green and one
of eight children. After graduating from
high school in 1979, Green attended two
years at a community college to study
welding. "One Saturday afternoon, I was
walking past a Navy recruiting office and
just went in and signed up. My whole fam-
ily has a military background and I just
decided it was my time. Plus, the Navy had
an excellent welding program and that's
what I wanted to do," he said.
After boot camp in Great Lakes, Ill.,
Green completed Hull Maintenance
Technician "A" and "C" becoming a nuclear
power plants components welder. His first
tour was on board USS Hunley (AS 31) in
Holy Loch, Scotland. In 1984, he trans-
ferred to USS Canopus (AS 34) homeported
at NSB Kings Bay, Ga. where he worked
on submarines until 1987.
He then attended Instructor "A" School
and Heat Treatment Metals school before
reporting to Naval Submarine School in
Groton, Ct. to teach welding. While there,
Green was promoted to chief petty officer.
In 1990, Green reported to USS Essex
(LHD 2), homeported in San Diego, Calif.

Sailors either deploying or returning from
an IA assignment in order to refine and
streamline the IA process.
"We are committed to listening to the
Sailors out there," said Greenert. "Our goal
is to have a process that is integrated as
part of a Sailor's career so that they know
that duty as an IA doesn't adversely affect
their career, but will in fact, enrich it."
As the IA executive agent, USFF ensures
a streamlined, standardized oversight of all
IA support programs and processes across

After the IA call, several NAS Jax
Sailors spent some one-on-one time with
the admiral during lunch. "I enjoyed hav-
ing lunch with Adm. Greenert because it
gave me a chance to talk with him person-
ally about my IA experience. I felt that
he was very interested in learning how to
make the IA experience better, not only for
the Sailors, but also for the families they
leave behind while on deployment," said

"The meeting with the admiral and our
group of IAs was a great opportunity
for us to express their concerns directly
to the man in charge of the IA program.
We found out that there are many new
ideas in the works to help alleviate IAs
from getting lost in the shuffle when
they leave for deployment," added Petry.
"It is slightly overwhelming to know that
an admiral and a Fleet Forces master chief
would take time out of their busy schedules
to obtain comments, questions and recom-
mendations regarding all our experiences
directly from us. That leaves no room for
buffering or misinterpretation of what we

The event, unlike any other holiday

Americans from all walks of life together.
NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. delivered the open-

patriots stated that, 'We mutually pledge
to each other our lives, our fortunes and
our sacred honor.' Ladies and gentlemen,
today, our servicemen and women are
doing the same thing. We have the watch."
"Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines,
and Coast Guardsmen are continuing
to fight for our freedom," Scorby added.
"Just take a look at what the Navy is doing
right now. There are over 50,000 Sailors
on station around the world. More than
14,000 Sailors are boots on the ground
in CENTCOM (U.S. Central Command)

some of the issues and programs available
that were discussed. Overall, the meeting
was beneficial, enhancing and appreciated."
Greenert also visited the Navy's newest
and largest P-3 Hangar, recently opened
at NAS Jax, which is the new home to five
P-3 Orion squadrons. Three additional P-3
squadrons from NAS Brunswick, Maine will
arrive here next year as they transition to
their new homeport.
During the tour, the admiral was
given a brief by Commander, Patrol and
Reconnaissance Wing Eleven Chief Staff
Officer Cmdr. Jim Debold who discussed
the impact of the new hangar, the tran-
sition of the NAS Brunswick squadrons
and the future of the maritime patrol and
reconnaissance community including the
P-8 Poseidon aircraft which will eventually
replace the P-3 Orion.
Greenert headed to HSM-70 where he was
met by HSM-70 Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Scott Walsh for a wardroom call and chief
petty officer mess call. The visit provided
the admiral with insight into the challenges
of standing up a new squadron as they tran-
sition to the new MH-60R Romeo helicopter
and move into the new helicopter hangar.
To cap off his tour at NAS Jax, Greenert
was transported to NS Mayport aboard one
of HSM-70's new Romeos.

Appropriations Subcommittee. "In addition to housing the
five Romeo helicopter squadrons, the hangar project includes
required maintenance support, administration and building
support spaces for each squadron."
"This hangar will provide those who are operating or conduct-
ing maintenance on the new Romeos with the resources they
need to keep the squadrons up and ready," Crenshaw added.
Commander, Navy Region Southeast Rear Adm. Townsend
Alexander also praised those involved accomplishing the his-
toric milestone. "It's not easy to pull these things off," Alexander
said to Capt. Doug Morton, commanding officer, Naval Facilities
Command Southeast. "Your team did a fantastic job on this out-
The first squadron to move into the new facility will be HSM-
70, the first squadron at NAS Jacksonville to receive the new
MH-60R helicopters. The squadron was established at NAS Jax
in February 2009.
"More than 10 years ago, the Navy developed the Helicopter
Master Plan, which was an acquisition strategy to develop a
helicopter force that was combat effective, easy to support with
global logistics and provide commonality across the Navy and
Department of Defense. The result of that initiative is the MH-
60R," stated Commander, HSM Wing, U.S. Atlantic Capt. Glenn
Doyle. "It is ,1 -i. .1 to be deployed as either part of the carrier
air wing on an aircraft carrier or in traditional HSL detach-
ments on frigates, destroyers or cruisers."
"It is a common airframe to most of the other helicopters in
the Navy inventory, but the mission systems and weapons sys-
tems present the very cutting edge in i,. h.1.[.., continuing to
provide a tactical .,1 ,,1 i to U.S. Naval Forces. This makes
the MH-60R a special breed of helicopter that is highly capable,
versatile and multi-mission," continued Doyle.
"This $72.3 million hangar complex, like this helicopter, pres-
ents the best in j. 1-.[,.L. and manufacturing and will serve
this station, the HSM Wing and the Navy for years to come."
The 204,931-sq.-foot facility will consolidate five helicopter
squadrons into one hangar resulting in a smaller footprint and
reduced energy costs.
"A project of this magnitude does not happen overnight," said
NAS Jax Public Works Officer Cmdr. Chuck Lewis, who was
the master of ceremony for the event. "Many personnel from the
Navy, both military and DoD civilians played significant roles
in the day-to-day execution of this project ensuring the highest
quality, timely completion and exceptional safety record through
4 11 11. ) man-hours of construction."
"It was truly a partnership that worked closely with the con-
tractor and was able to complete this facility several months in
advance," he added.
Also participating in the event were: Capt. Douglas Morton,
commanding officer, Naval Facilities Engineering Command

was selected as an aero-
space engineering duty offi-
cer (AEDO). He was also
selected as "Test Pilot of
the Year" for the Naval Air
Warfare Center, Weapons
Division in 1995.
Sohl's first assignment as
an AEDO was to the Naval
Aviation Depot, North
Island, Calif., working as
the deputy program manag-
er for the F/A- 18 program.
In August 1998, he
reported to the Joint Strike
Fighter Program Office
in Crystal City, Va., first
as the executive assistant
to the director, then as a
member of the JSF Source
He reported to USNTPS
as executive officer in
August 2001 and subse-
quently assumed command
of the school in April 2003.
After leaving the USNTPS
in January 2005, Sohl vol-
unteered for a six-month
tour in Afghanistan.
After deployment he
returned to Patuxent River,
Md., where he was assigned
as the Government Flight
Test Director of the new
presidential helicopter, VH-
71A. During this tour, he
was slated for command
of the FRCSE. Sohl has
logged more than 3,100
flight hours in more than
30 types of aircraft.
Matthews assumed com-
mand of FRCSE in August
2007, and has been nomi-
nated for appointment to
the rank of rear admiral.
His tenure as commanding
officer includes many nota-
ble achievements including:
* Chief of Naval Operations

According to Matthews,
his tour as command-

rewarding. "Leading the
outstanding men and
women of FRCSE has been
the most rewarding privi-
lege of my 27 years in the
Navy," he said.
As Matthews prepares to
pass the baton, his confi-
dence in his executive offi-

he will continue the legacy
of greatness that FRCSE

of the Navy Hospital Corps

The award is presented to

Corpuz was recognized
for his outstanding ser-
vice while assigned to the
U.S. Marines in support
of Commander Joint Task
from September 2007 to
"The Marines treated me
well. They treated me as one
of their own," he said.
Navy Corpsmen who serve
with the Marines must dem-
onstrate their commitment
to caring for their fellow
brothers in arms. Corpuz
quickly earned the respect
of his comrades in arms and
the title of "Doc."
To sharpen his field medi-
cal skills, Corpuz attended
Field Medical Service School
2003 at Camp Lejeune,
N.C. and deployed to Al
Anbar Province, Fallujah,
Iraq in 2005 for eight
months in support of
Operation Iraqi Freedom.
He was tasked with estab-
lishing a battalion aid sta-
tion and teaching basic first
aid and trauma care to Iraqi
That tour helped prepared
Corpuz for his Afghanistan
deployment. He also quali-
fied on eight weapons sys-
tems and took additional
training to become proficient
in 24 combat skills.
"My main job was to train
up 15 Afghan National Army
medics in basic first aid and
combat lifesaving courses,"
His unit accompanied the
Afghan medics on several
medical and humanitarian
assistance missions to pro-
vide medical aid, food cloth-
ing, cooking utensils and
"It was also a great expe-
rience to work with the
Afghan Army and interact
with all the people," he said.
"I love the operational side
These missions gave the
Afghan Army "face time"
with the locals. "We backed
them up and provided secu-
rity," Corpuz said.
As a member of a Marine
unit, Corpuz is also a trained
rifleman. His unit provid-
ed safe passage for 95 con-
voys throughout Nangarhar
Province spanning 16,000
square miles of rugged ter-
rain. He recalled one har-
rowing ambush while work-
ing in the Pech Valley, a
hostile zone surrounded by
mountains about 50 miles
from the Pakistan boarder.
"We were on a convoy in a
Humvee. I was the "A" gun-
ner sitting in the back seat.
We took machine gun fire
and rocket propelled gre-
Corpuz returned fire for
more than 30 minutes. His
unit called in additional
firepower, mortars, from a
nearby camp. The ambush

He said he was never
afraid during these skir-
mishes and attributes it to
'muscle' memory. "It's what
we train for," he added.
Corpuz has maintained
contact with his Marine
friends. "I was told it is the
best team in the world the
Navy and Marine Corps
team," he said.
For the Marines, he was
a battle buddy, a comrade
in arms, and a person who
could be trusted and counted
on to get the mission done.

to participate in
sexual assault study
By Bruce Moody
Fleet and Family Support Program, Commander,
Navy Installations Command
The Navy encourages active-duty
Sailors to participate in a sexual
assault study to assess the effective-
ness of the Navy's Sexual Assault Victim
Intervention (SAVI) program.
The Office of the Naval Inspector General
(IG) is conducting the survey, which is
available at www.ig.navy.mil/sastudy.htm.
The survey was designed for active-duty
personnel, is confidential, anonymous, and
will be available for participation through
Naval IG teams are also visiting instal-
lations around the fleet through the end of
September. As part of the visits, they are
facilitating focus group discussions to gain
more insight from a fleet perspective, about
the occurrences and command support dur-
ing incidences of sexual assault. Each focus
group will be composed of a cross-section of
personnel and consist of approximately 20
people from various rank categories.
The Navy's SAVI Program is man-
aged by Commander, Navy Installations
Command's Fleet and Family Support
Program. The Fleet and Family Support
Program manages a wide variety of pro-
grams, including SAVI. These programs
enhance Sailor readiness and family pre-
paredness, directly contributing to mission
The Navy is the first of the armed ser-
vice to have a dedicated program for sexual
assault awareness, prevention, and inter-
vention. Established in 1994, the program
has recently shifted more focus toward
prevention and is incorporating new initia-
tives based on civilian best practices and
"Sexual assault is a crime and will not
be tolerated," said Paul Finch, SAVI's pro-
gram manager. "It is a criminal act, incom-
patible with the Navy's core values; it dra-
matically affects morale and operational
readiness. Senior leadership is committed
to an effective and responsive SAVI pro-
gram in order to ensure prevention, qual-
ity victim care and response and to holding
In working toward this commitment, the
Navy is sustaining a robust sexual assault
prevention and response policy, identify-
ing and eliminating barriers to reporting,
ensuring that care is available and acces-
sible to victims of sexual assault, and pro-
viding continuous, relevant, and effective
training and education to all service mem-
bers. All Navy commands have a 24/7 sex-

ents Master Sgt. Jerry Morgan with the Meritorious
Service Medal for serving more than 30 years in the
U.S. Army, as retired Army Sgt. Pennington looks on.
Morgan's nomination for the award had been filed
with the Army more than 20 years ago, but had not
been completed. Crenshaw forwarded paperwork
to the Army in June 2008 and happily presented the
award to Morgan during the Greater Jacksonville Area
USO Council Board meeting at the NAS Jax Officers'
Club June 30.

Cornstarch, food coloring and a pinch
of soap flakes make a great batch of

glue become Silly Putty in a snap, and
a roll of toilet paper and a bar of soap
easily transform into clean mud as

DeCA launches Li'l Heroes Baby Program
By Courtney Rogers
DeCA Customer Relations Specialist
The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) has
launched a new initiative called the Li'l Heroes
"Customers have told us that the commissary is their
most important nonpay benefit, so we want to maintain
that by supporting the whole military family as much as
possible," DeCA Director and CEO Philip Sakowitz Jr.
said. "We value the sacrifices these families have made for
our country, and hope that the support this program will
provide will make the commissary even more worth the
trip for them."
The Li'l Heroes Baby Program will be featured on a spe-
cial section of http://www.commissaries.com that will offer
articles from the DeCA dietitian, Lt. Col. Karen Hawkins,
and the agency's home economist, Kay Blakley, as well
as links to other government sources providing tips and
advice to new parents.

Caring for Kids
Tweens and teens practice diapering baby mannequins
during a Caring for Kids class sponsored by the NAS Jax
Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) and Memorial
Healthcare June 20. The class teaches youths ages 11-18
about babysitting skills, CPR and other safety issues. Topics
included: how to land a babysitting job, cooking, bathing
children, how to answer the phone and how to change a
diaper. After seven hours of instruction, each participant
was certified as a babysitter. "With the deployments that
our military families face, the FFSC staff believes this new
class increases family readiness and gives young people the
confidence they need to become successful babysitters,"
said FFSC Education and Training Facilitator Wilhelmina

NMSC Facilities Department
for joint-service collaboration

was one of the winners of the 2008
Department of Defense Value Engineering
Achievement (VEA) Awards at a ceremony
held at the Pentagon June 17.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Louisville District, nominated the Wright-
Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB)
Human Performance Wing Project (HPWP)
Team for a special VEA award given by
the DoD. NMSC's Facilities Department
and the Naval Aerospace Medical Research
Laboratory (NAMRL) staff were a part of
that HPWP team.
"The award is for one of the BRAC (Base
Realignment and Closure) projects we're
managing: the HPWP in Ohio and the
NAMRL relocation that's currently in
Pensacola," said Michael Plante, NMSC's
facilities director. "I've personally been
involved in the project since March of 2005
with the original BRAC announcement."
"But the coordinator has been NMSC
Facilities Project Officer Lt. Paul Benoit
and the NAMRL staff headed by Cmdr.
Rita Simmons. Though it's my name on the
actual plaque, they're the ones who should
be recognized for this because it really is a
very significant team effort, and the award
should be a Navy team award," he contin-

you close and
in a routine.
This is espe-
(Lt.) Justin Top
run out of uplifting things
to say, end the conversation.
You may even decide to put a
limit on yourselves. The last
thing you want is to begin
dreading phone conversa-
Be positive Negativity
will suck the life out of the
relationship, even if it is
directed elsewhere. Many
couples think that it will
strengthen their relationship
to tell each other all their
problems. The other person
usually feels responsible to
fix the problem but can't, so
they begin to feel frustrated
Though it is okay to occa-
sionally vent your frustra-
tions, try to limit it and
make sure the other person
understands that you just
want them to listen, not to
fix it. Share happy things
with each other.
Make sure the positive far
outweighs the negative. Be
upbeat, optimistic, and excit-
ed and the enthusiasm will
spill over into your relation-
Laugh together- just like
you did when you first fell in
love. Humor is a great reliev-
er of stress. Look for funny
things (jokes, stories, expe-
riences, etc.) to share with
if you have children. Some
examples of family rituals
are telling a bedtime story
over the phone, sending mail
once a week, etc.
Rituals are also important
in romantic relationships.
Some examples may be
reading scripture and pray-
ing together over the phone,
choosing a book to read
together and discuss, watch-
ing sporting events then dis-
cussing them. Base your rit-
uals on what you love to do,
what brings you close, and
what your family needs.
Empower each other
- Don't fall into the trap of
believing that if you really
love each other you will be
miserable when you are
apart. In truth, needy rela-
tionships are the most likely
to fail. "I need you" is actu-
ally the opposite of "I love
If you truly love each
other, you will want what is
best for each other. Empower
each other to get involved
and to do things that will
bring happiness. Foster
in each other ability to be
happy and independent.
Only when your happiness
comes from yourself will you
be really be able to share it
with each other.

'when' they'll strike
f you read this column regularly you may recall
that I announced that I was starting a series on
the communities that compose our great Navy.
As soon as I submitted that column my inbox filled
with questions and requests that required a change
in the next few columns. We'll pick up the series at a
later time to focus on timely topics for you and your
can seem like a
dull topic but it
is a 'life and B death'
issue. The rERSPECTIVE hurri-
cane season Pis in

west coast a n d
is affecting the Midwest. It's time to be prepared for
what may come our way this summer and fall.
In a disaster, first responders police, firefighters
and medical personnel are finite in their numbers
and abilities. Federal support may not arrive for three
days or more so we must take personal responsibil-
Now is the time to create that disaster plan for you
and your family. The good news is it is not difficult. A
disaster plan involves three main areas: (1) a commu-
nication plan, (2) a disaster kit and (3) an evacuation
An effective communication plan is easy. Determine
a family member or friend outside your local area in
which to call to 'report in.' Often phone lines (includ-
ing cell phones) are swamped in the affected area.
By contacting grandma in Phoenix or Aunt Delia in
Pittsburgh, all family members can report in and
determine who needs help.

ters of appreciation to Charles and Christon Green during their father, appreciation presented by NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. at

as part of the pre-commis-
sioning and commissioning
crew. "We were designed to
transit the Panama Canal
and were the first LHD
to demonstrate that abil-
ity. After our first cruise, I
wanted to stay on sea duty
there, but the Navy sent me
back to Groton for another
tour," Green stated.
From 1995-98, Green
worked at Naval Submarine
Support Facility in Groton,
where he was promoted
to master chief. In 1998,
he was selected for the
Command Master Chief
Green's first tour as a
command master chief was
on board USS Moosebrugger
(DD 980) at NS Mayport
where he completed two
deployments before decom-
missioning the ship. "In
2000, I transferred to
Naval Hospital Charleston,
but two years later I ter-
minated my shore duty. I
went to USS Estocin (FFG
15), but it was only for six
months, and then we tran-
sitioned her to the Turkish
Navy," Green recalled. He
then transferred to USS
Philippine Sea (CG 58) as
command master chief.
Green reported to NAS
Jacksonville as command
master chief in January
2005. Three years later,
he volunteered for a one-
year individual augmen-
tee tour to U.S. Naval
Central Command Forward
where he served as the
senior enlisted Navy mem-
ber responsible for the
well-being of approximately
As for his most memora-
ble tours, Green has many.
"I will always remember
Holy Loch, Scotland, it
defined a lot of us as hull
technicians and the type
of Sailors we would be. I
loved being an instructor,
a really rewarding job, plus
I made chief. The Essex
was my first combatant.
All my tours as a command
master chief (CMC), clos-
ing out a career with a tour
in Afghanistan and being
the CMC of NAS Jax, they
have all been wonderful!"
"The men and women
in our armed services are
some of the finest individu-
als I've ever met in my life.
They are a cut above. They
live by core values and
go into harm's way every
day. There is not one thing
going on in this world today

needs to be part of that communication
plan: 1-877-414-5358, otherwise known
as the Navy Family Assessment and
Accountability System (NFAAS). Put this
number in your wallet and program it into
your cell phone.
Step two is the disaster kit. The Navy's
Operation Prepare Web site has great
information for you and your family. Log
on to https://www.cnic.navy.mil/cnic_hq_
site/OpPrepare/index.htm for resources
and information to build an emergency kit
for your family with specific information
for your geographical region.
The Red Cross site: http://www.redcross.
org/services/prepare also offers great info
for your disaster kit. Remember to assem-
ble these items in a closet or area that
everyone knows. Make readiness a family
Remember the motto, "Three days, three
ways." Be prepared to survive for three
days and have three ways to evacuate your
home and neighborhood.
Navy families should register before
disaster at https://www.navyfamily.
navy.mil/. This is the NFAAS system that
enables the Department of the Navy to
assist each family affected by a national
disaster/crisis or a personal situation, as
well as IA's and their families. Logon to the
site and complete the registration informa-
tion. In an emergency you may either call
the toll free number (1-877-414-5358) or
logon to update your status and indicate
your needs if any. A case manager will
be assigned and proper resources will be
brought to bear to meet your needs from
an ambulance to a chaplain.
Assemble a "readiness binder," folder or
backpack with important papers (copies)
that can be easily grabbed as you dash out
the door. Include a copy of your most recent
orders, copies of driver licenses, military
IDs, medical information (medications and
dosages), all account numbers (bank, credit
card, insurance policies), birth certificates
and marriage license to name a few. And
tuck into this same binder some cash. Put
away $15 per pay period for one year and
you will have $360 for gas, hotel, food and
other expenses in case you cannot access
your bank account immediately.
We hear about disaster preparedness
often. The tendency is to let it go with-
out action. Make disaster preparedness a
summer activity for you and your family.
Please send me any ideas, tips or resources
you used for your disaster plan.
Questions or comments for Beth? Drop
her a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
or check out her Internet talk show for
Navy spouses, Navy Homefront Talk, at
ing in some way. When you
run into a parachute rig-
ger in Afghanistan running
intel for a PRT site, that
shows you the diversity of
our Sailors. What they are
doing on the decks of ships
in the Persian Gulf or in
the North Atlantic or South
America continuously puts
them in a dangerous envi-
ronment. It's truly an honor
to wrap up my years of ser-
vice as a Sailor, and I will
always be a Sailor," said
"I will really miss work-
ing with all the wonderful
people who've crossed my
path. I will also miss watch-
ing the sunrise or sunset
from the deck while at
sea," he added. "I will miss
helping the junior Sailors
reach their full potential.
My advice to them is to fol-
low the Navy's Core Values,
know your rate and know
it well. And, always do the
right thing no matter how
hard it may be. Sailors
need and want to be led; do
not be afraid to step up and
lead, but be fair, firm and

reside in the Jacksonville
