briefs naval aviators
By Clark Pierce ..-a


R ear Adm. Richard
O'Hanlon, commander,
Naval Air Force Atlantic,
was guest speaker at the July
9 Association of Naval Aviation
Bald Eagle Squadron meeting at
NAS Jacksonville Officers' Club.
He delivered a briefing on the
current status of naval aviation
- from carrier strike groups, air
wings and squadrons to new plat-
forms such as the P-8A multi-
mission aircraft (ININ.A\) and the
F-35C joint strike fighter (JSF).
"As you know, our Navy has
evolved beyond the classic ship-
to-ship sea battles of World War
II. While we can still meet any
adversary in a blue water envi-
ronment, today's Navy also serves
our nation and allies through
power projection ashore, irregu-
lar warfare, humanitarian assis-
tance and disaster relief, as well
as piracy and smuggling interdic-
tion.
"Those of you who deployed
with a carrier battle group 20
years ago will see that today's
carrier strike group is composed
of fewer, more capable ships. Yet,
we're still challenged to meet the

commitments of the fleet due to
the fact that we deploy with a
small number of ships. We know
there's a lot more work that the
Navy can do in forward theaters
- but we must have more ships
to meet the need," said O'Hanlon.
"As for aircraft, our carri-
er strike groups carry not only
the legacy F/A-18 Hornets, but
also the extremely lethal Super
Hornets. I can say from personal
experience that Boeing has done


a terrific job in maturing the
airframe of the E and F models.
The software and smart weap-
ons are amazing. We also fly
with incredible helmet-mounted
display technology that incorpo-
rates a target sight visible on the
pilot's visor that cues onboard
weapons against enemy aircraft
and surface targets. We're also
able to link what we see from our
forward-looking infrared (FliR)
down to forward air controllers


for clearance to engage a target
on the ground.
"The replacement for our legacy
Hornets is the F-35 JSF. I recent-
ly flew the simulator for this
amazing aircraft in Ft. Worth,
Texas, where the first operation-
al Navy variant is scheduled to
roll out later this summer. It's a
very stealthy machine with a tre-
mendous 360-degree sensor suite
displayed on the pilot's helmet
visor. But since the JSF is behind
schedule and over budget, there's
a looming 'strike fighter shortfall'
that is estimated to leave our 10
carrier wings up to 200 planes
short of what's needed for years
2014 2016.
"The solution involves (1)


extending the life of legacy
Hornets from 8,600 to 10,000
flight hours, (2) purchasing addi-
tional Super Hornets at about
one-third the cost of the JSF, and
(3) keeping a close eye on JSF
flight tests to minimize any fur-
ther delays in development.
"The venerable EA-6B Prowler
is a unique Navy asset in
today's electronic warfare envi-
ronment that enhances battle-
field situational awareness.
We have 10 tailhook squadrons
and three expeditionary squad-
rons that have taken over elec-
tronic attack missions from the
Air Force. They regularly deploy

Fite turns over

'Pro's Nest'

to Yaw

From VP-30 PublicAffairs

Capt. Perry Yaw will
assume command
of VP-30 at a cer-
emony to be held in the
squadron's hangar tomor-
row. Yaw relieves Capt.
Richard Fite, who has led
the squadron since August
2007. Retired Rear Adm.
Richard Brooks will be the
guest speaker.
Born in Binghampton,
N.Y. and raised in Long
Beach, N.Y., Yaw joined the
ROTC program at Auburn
University where he gradu-
ated with honors in 1986
with a Bachelor of Science
in aviation management.
In 1989, he received his
"Wings of Gold" after com-
pleting training at NAS
Meridian, Miss.
Yaw reported to the West
Coast Fleet Replacement
Squadron (FRS), VP-31 for
initial training in the P-3C
Orion aircraft. Upon com-
pletion of training in 1991,
he reported to the "Blue
Sharks" of VP-6 at NAS
Barbers Point, Hawaii.
During his tour, he quali-
fied as patrol plane com-
mander and deployed to
Misawa, Japan. Following
the disestablishment of
the VP-6 in 1993, Yaw was
assigned to the "Golden
Eagles" of VP-9, where he
qualified as patrol plane
mission commander and


Capt. Perry Yaw


instructor pilot. During his
first tour with the Golden
Eagles, he deployed to
Diego Garcia and Masirah,
Oman, flying missions in
the Arabian Gulf in sup-
port of Operation Southern
Watch.
In 1994, Yaw reported
for FRS instructor train-
ing at VP-30 while en route
to duty on the West Coast
NATOPS evaluation team
for Commander, Patrol
Wings, U.S. Pacific Fleet
(CPWP), at NAS Barbers
Point, Hawaii. He served
as a CPWP NATOPS
evaluation team member,
patrol plane instructor
and Maverick missile sys-
tem introduction team lead
pilot.
In 1996, Yaw reported to
on board USS Enterprise
(CVN 65), in Norfolk, Va.,
as the operations admin-
istration officer. While on
board the carrier, he quali-
fied as officer of the deck
underway and deployed to
the Mediterranean Sea and
Arabian Gulf.
Yaw returned to NAS
Barbers Point, Hawaii in
1998 and reported once


Capt. Richard Fite


again to the Golden Eagles
of VP-9 where he served
as training officer, assis-
tant maintenance officer
and maintenance officer.
During this tour with VP-
9, Yaw completed a tri-
site deployment to Diego
Garcia, Masirah, Oman
and Bahrain and a dual-
site deployment to Misawa
and Kadena, Japan. The
1998 tri-site deployment
was the first ever deploy-
ment with the new Aircraft
Improvement Program
variant of the P-3C air-
craft. It was also during
this tour that VP-9 com-
pleted its homeport change
from NAS Barbers Point to
Marine Corps Base Hawaii
(MCBH), Kaneohe Bay,
Hawaii.
In 2000, Yaw reported
to Commander, Patrol and
Reconnaissance Forces,
U.S. Pacific Fleet, home-
ported at MCBH, where he
served as the force training
officer and assistant chief of
staff for training.
In 2004, he reported for
the third time to VP-9 as

Summer vacation challenges


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor
Don't tell Dustin, but some-
times he has a point. For six
hours out of the day, Monday
through Friday, September to June,
my oldest boys, Ford and Owen, are
in school (number one reason not to
home school public school is free
and not inside your house). According
to Dustin, this is the perfect opportu-
nity for me to relax and get things
done.
With Ford and Owen away, I am
only responsible for our 2-year-old
son, Lindell, who until just recently
took a nap during most of the school
hours. It's true that I was able to
write, clean windows, make dinner
and do many other things.
But in my school-year naivety, I
considered these tasks to be very dif-
ficult never mind the sleeping tod-
dler and I called Dustin an assort-
ment of bad names for believing that
watching a toddler was anything but
exhausting. When Dustin came home
at night, it was his turn. (My 88-year-
old grandmother, Doris, laughs at
this. "When I was raising kids," she
says, "there was no 'his' turn. It was
only my turn.")
All this changed last week with the
final day of school, also known around
our house as "The Last Day of Sarah's
Vacation." Really, who thought sum-
mer vacation for kids was a good
idea? Waiting in the pick-up line at
school on that final day, you could
actually see the dread on the parents'
faces. This was in stark contrast to
the giddy excitement expressed by
teachers, who were looking forward


FROM THE HOMEFRONT


to their much-deserved
three months off.
I had hoped that my
children would be sent
home with instructions
clipped to their book
bag so I could remem-
ber how to care for
them. Something like
"Ford has his snack at
10:30" would be help-
ful. Or, "Remind Owen


Sarah Smiley


to wash his hands after using the
bathroom."
This feeling of forthcoming inepti-
tude reminded me of another last day
- a mother's last day in the hospi-
tal when they release you into the
world with your newborn baby, and
you think, "But the instruction manu-
al is missing!"
We are almost two weeks into sum-
mer vacation now, however, so most
of what I need know is coming back
to me, the same way my fingers auto-
matically get into position and find
the right keys when I'm near a piano,
even after months of not playing.
For instance, it came back to me
how children are stubbornly attuned
to the rising sun, even if it happens
before 7 o'clock. Putting them to bed
later doesn't help. Children intuitive-
ly know that sleeping in is a luxury
for their parents, and so they set out
to destroy it.
Similarly, when a mom tries to
sleep past 7 a.m., and she receives
an important phone call, her child


will answer it and say,
"Um, my mom is still
in bed." When that
important phone call is
received again later in
the day, the same child
will say, "Now my mom
is at the spa," even if
she was really at the
gym.
I'm also reminded
of boys' fondness for


water guns. You take them to the
closest drug store and buy them new
water guns. You think the afternoon
is all yours again as you visualize a
day of kids entertaining themselves
with the water guns. Except, when
you get home from the drug store,
they say, "We don't really want to
play with water guns after all." This
happens approximately five hours
before your husband is supposed to
return home from work. You still
have lunch dishes to clean, clothes
to fold, a column to write and din-
ner to make. You are frustrated and
tired. You briefly consider changing
your name to anything except "Mom."
You wish that the laundry would iron
itself and that the bathrooms would
magically be clean.
You wonder when the kids go back
to school.
And then, the last thing you recall
from summers before is that drench-
ing your husband with the new water
blaster when he gets home is totally
not beneath you.


Nobody does it like Disney: Part two


By Erica Pefia-Vest
Special Contributor


In the last week's column, I talked
about Disneyland with the prom-
ise that this week I would address
Disney's other properties in Southern
California.
Disney's California adventure opened
in 2001. The Disney Imagineering team
wanted to create a park that represent-
ed all facets of the Golden State, from
the Golden Gate Bridge that marks the
park's entrance to a Hollywood back lot.
Adding this extra park allowed Disney
to import popular rides from its Florida
parks and add some thrill rides for the
older, adventure-seeking crowd that
wouldn't fit in at Disneyland.
'California Screamin' is a rollercoast-
er situated in the boardwalk area and
has all the sights, sounds and smells
of a typical amusement park but the
rollercoaster is anything but typical. As
only Disney can, they have taken a hall-
mark ride and raised the bar a notch,
leaving guests breathless as the coaster
stops at the end of the ride.
Another hallmark ride is the 'Grizzly
River Rapids' Disney's version of the
classic log flume ride. But instead of
riding a classic gondola, Disney's ride
features round rafts that spin and twirl
as they bounce along in the turbulence
of the flume. Forget about picking a
seat where you are more or less likely
to get wet. The rafts spin with the mer-
cilessness of a roulette wheel, meaning
that no two rides are the same.
ooo


FREEDOM To TRAVEL


Along with California Adventure,
another great addition to the Disney
property is 'Downtown Disney' a
street between the two parks that is
open to the public. You can do some
serious Disney and non-Disney shop-
ping and sample some of the best cui-
sine of Anaheim. World of Disney is
the ultimate Disney store where you
can find almost anything you want -
Disney-wise under one roof. Both sou-
venirs and collectables are easy to find
along with some of your preferred mall
staples
Since I get to travel extensively both
as a hobby and as a vocation, I get to
dine at some of the most famous res-
taurants in America. As a food critic
for a military newspaper and other pub-
lications, I was thrilled to find three
of my favorite restaurants located at
Downtown Disney. Catal Restaurant
and Uva Bar, Naples Ristorante
e Pizzeria and Tortilla Jo's Mexican
Restaurant are phenomenal restau-
rants.
Catal Restaurant is a fine dining
establishment with a Mediterranean
menu. My party ordered various appe-
tizers and meals and everything we
tasted was delectable. Normally, I
would tell you that the highlight of any
restaurant is the meal. At Catal, there
is something that outshines their food
- their service.


At Naples Ristorante, I found some
of the best pizza I've ever tasted. The
authentic Italian menu leaves you wish-
ing you could try one of everything!
My greatest surprise came from
Tortilla Jo's. As a Hispanic woman
raised on authentic Mexican food pre-
pared in my mother's and grandmoth-
er's kitchens, the last place I would
have expected to find great Mexican
food is at a theme park, but I was
wrong. Not only was Tortilla Jo's a fan-
tastic surprise, I enjoyed it so much, I
would travel al the way to Anaheim just
to eat there. Even though they are most
famous for their 100 different tequilas, I
think their homemade corn tortillas are
their strongest selling point.
With Disney Parks offering military
members free admission and discounted
admission for friends and family (see
your ITT for more details), there has
never been a better time to visit the
Disneyland Resort. With free admis-
sion, discounted hotels and activities,
and great restaurants, you'll miss the
chance of a lifetime by not visiting a
Disney Park this year.
I don't hold stock in the company and
I'm not related to the management.
What I can tell you is that you will feel
like a kid again, you will love the look
on your kids' faces when they see it for
the first time because as I said before,
"Nobody does it like Di-nivy'

Naval Facilities En-

The new training facility

multi-mission aircraft
(MMA) that will be replac-

phases out of service from
2012 to 2019.

Navy unveils



self-apply option



for PCS orders

From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs
The latest upgrade to the Navy's detailing system
empowers Sailors by allowing them to submit
their own job applications when negotiating for
permanent change of station (PCS) orders, according to
NAVADMIN 200/09, released July 7.
Career Management System Interactive Detailing
(CMS/ID), is a Web-based system that allows Sailors to
view available job assignments and make applications
through their command career counselors when looking
for PCS orders. Beginning with the July 9 CMS/ID appli-
cation cycle, many Sailors will have the ability to submit
applications on their own.
"More senior Sailors already understand the detailing
system and know what they should be looking for. The
self-apply option is good for them. This frees up the career
counselor to work with junior Sailors who may have never
negotiated orders before and need help navigating the
system," said Chief Warrant Officer Samuel Kirkland,
assigned to OPNAV N16 Fleet Introduction team.
The OPNAV N16 Fleet Introduction Team tests and
validates manpower, personnel, training and education
applications currently being used by Sailors. CMS/ID Self-
Apply option was tested at 15 different commands includ-
ing ships, shore units and squadrons during a five-month
period.
"The feedback has been very positive. We found that
Sailors liked the empowerment," said Kirkland.
"Sailors have been asking for it, and the Navy really
delivered," said NCCS(SW) Veronica Holliday, assigned
to Navy Region Southwest in San Diego. Holliday's com-
mand participated in the CMS/ID Self-Apply operational
test earlier this year.
"We love it. It is like what a lot of major businesses
already do, where you apply online or at an application
kiosk," said Holliday.
While this new option allows Sailors to apply for jobs on
their own, the career counselor will still retain the option
to review and modify requests.
"It does not take the command out of the process
because we have to review the applications to make sure
Sailors apply to the right jobs for their career path," said
Holliday, who verifies applicants at her command meet
physical readiness standards, sea-shore flow requirements
and other factors.
Before getting started, Sailors must meet Perform to
Serve requirements as outlined in NAVADMIN 017/09
and 161/09 and be within their orders negotiation window
in order to submit applications. Sailors can access CMS/ID
online at https://www.cmsid.navy.mil. A common access
card (CAC) and a card reader are required to log in.
Sailors without Internet access should continue to com-
municate with their detailers through the career counselor
and the chain of command.


HEY, MONEYCHIC!


Hey, MoneyChic!: My daughter is leaving for college
soon. I'm worried that she is going to be tempted by the
freebies that credit card companies use to lure young kids
to open credit accounts on college campuses. I've had a
few friends whose kids fell into these traps and wound up
with thousands of dollars charged on credit cards over the
course of a year or two away at college. Besides talking to
my daughter, what can I do?
MoneyChic says: You have valid concerns regarding
credit cards and college students, especially freshmen who
are getting their first taste of financial freedom. Sallie
Mae has tracked that the average credit card balance car-
ried by a freshman is up threefold from just four years
ago. The average college student has four credit cards
and a total balance of $3,173 of interest bearing debt! In
response, new credit card reform legislation was signed
in May that prohibits credit card companies from setting
up on campuses and giving away freebies to anyone under
21. Colleges are also being encouraged to provide credit
card and debt counseling education as part of new student
orientation. Will young students be targeted in other envi-
ronments, probably so, but it will not be as easy for young
students to open credit accounts as in the past. Continue
talking with your daughter about the pros and cons of
credit.


"This integrated training
center (ITC) will facilitate
the Navy Maritime Patrol
and Reconnaissance Fleet's


transition from the P-3C to
the P-8A (a modified Boeing
737-800) with state-of-the-
art technology."
Fite continued, "VP-30 is
home to the Navy's finest
instructors who train pilots,
naval flight officers and air-
crew to face a multitude of
operational challenges in a
demanding maritime envi-
ronment. The future looks
extremely bright for the
Fleet and the new ITC will
help cement our foundation
as a center of ASW excel-
lence"
Commenting on the new
construction project, NAS
Jax Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. stat-


ed, "I am delighted that
this sophisticated training
facility is going to be built
aboard NAS Jacksonville.
This project consists of
design and construction of
a two-story, 165,475-sq.-ft.
structure for training pilots,
naval flight officers and air-
crew on the P-8A Poseidon
multi-mission aircraft."
"This will be unlike any
other training facility ever
built by the Navy and
includes space for 10 opera-

From VP-30
PublicAffairs Office Pensacola. Here they nut


Fifteen junior officers
assigned to VP-30
received their "wings
of gold" insignia June
26, designating each as a
Naval Flight Officer (NFO).
VP-30 Commanding Officer
Capt. Rich Fite and Capt.
Sean Buck, deputy director
for operations in the strat-
egy and policy directorate
of the U.S. Joint Forces
Command, officiated at the
event.
The students recent-
ly completed the VP-30
Undergraduate Maritime
Flight Officer (UMFO) syl-
labus.
The newly winged NFOs
are not pilots, but special-
ists in airborne weapons
and sensor systems, as
well as the tactics of their
employment.
Receiving their wings
were: Lt. j.g. Rachel
Ingram, Lt. j.g. Caleb
Knapp, Ensigns James
Bridgen, Jeffery Buck, Leah
Butkevich, Albert Drones,
Chester Johnson, Beau
Laird, John Leeds, Stephen
Marsden, Eric Schwartz,
Ryan Smith, Jon Torbett,

in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii,
Whidbey Island, Wash. or
NAS Jacksonville to begin
their initial sea tour.
The NFO training pipe-
line begins with Aviation
Preflight Introduction (API)
instruction in Pensacola,
Fla., where all aviation
officers undergo a class-
room syllabus and learn
the basics of naval aviation
including courses such as
aerodynamics, meteorology
and navigation principles.
After completing API, all
student NFOs report for
primary training at either
VT-10 or VT-4 at NAS

Scenario One: So
you're fresh out of
boot camp or you're
a balding middle-aged man
hitting that mid-life crisis.
Either way you are look-
ing for a sweet new ride to
impress your friends.
You're cruising AutoTra-
der one day when you see a
$25,000 yellow Mustang GT
listed for only $3,500. You
think to yourself, "this must
be some kind of mistake,
but man what a deal." You
send an e-mail to find out
if this is for real. Turns out,
the person selling it is going
through a divorce and look-
ing to really get at her hus-
band. Thankfully, you are
there to help her, all you
have to do is send a $3,500
money order to a friend
of hers (she doesn't want
her husband to get half
that money after all) and
the car is all yours. This is
a deal that you can't just
pass up, so an hour later
and the money order is on
the way. Two weeks later,
you haven't heard a thing
so you contact the money
order service only to find
out that the money order


was picked up and there is
no way to get it back.
Scenario Two: You

The Fourth of July

the standard yet again in
the 2009 Freedom Fitness

ment to Qatar. The squad-
ron entered a team for
every fitness event. The

competitions were designed
to test the strength, endur-
ance, agility, and creative-
ness of numerous com-
mands including the U.S.
Navy, Air Force and Allied.
"They should have more
events like this," stated
AWO2 Mark Biscarner,
who competed in the Build-
Your-Own-Boat Race, "It
really helps bridge the


Champi(

gap between the services.
There's a big difference in
the number of Navy vs. Air
Force here. There's so few
of us, but we projected such
a strong presence."
When asked about his
fellow participants, he
responded, "VP-10...there
could not a more tight knit
bunch."

your mail. A letter from
Award Grant informs you
that you've recently been
selected for a cash grant.
Incredible! You don't even
remember applying for a
grant, but who are you to
tell them what to do? It
seems some benevolent
benefactor that gives billions
away to charities and indi-
viduals has identified you
as the kind of good soul that
deserves this free money.
You have in your hand a
check for $4,500, with the
guarantee of another, and
all you have to do is cash
the check and pay the bro-
ker's "commission" of $900
by going to their website
and providing your credit
card number.
You cash the check. You
get $4,500 in cash. You pay
the $900. No additional
check arrives, and your bank
comes a calling. It seems the
check was bogus, and you're
on the hook for the $4,500
(plus an additional $900
that you've mailed away)
not to mention the fact that
you've given your credit card
number and other personal
information away.
The thing these scenarios
have in common is, quite
obviously, that they are
scams. Despite the fact that
you're probably saying to
yourself, "no one would fall
for that," people do every
day. Not all scams prey on
an individual's greed, many
exploit sympathy. One
woman lost her entire life
savings paying what she
believed to be legal fees for
the adoption of two chil-
dren whose mother, she was
told, was dying from AIDS.
Neither the mother nor the
children existed, just the
scam artist.
If you were to ask anyone
who has fallen victim to one
of these scams whether they
wish they had consulted
with a lawyer before they
got sucked in, the answer
would invariably be "Yes!"
The old adage, "If it sounds
too good to be true, it prob-
ably is," holds true today
as much as it ever has. So
before you consider taking
"free money," consider the
fact that as a service mem-

Child


CDC offers
By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy Public Affairs Officer

K knowing your child is
safe and well taken
care of while you're
hard at work plays a tre-
mendous role in every
parent's state of mind.
Finding quality childcare
is sometimes more difficult
than realized especially for
those in the military who
work odd hours, stand duty
or deploy on a ship, leav-
ing a single spouse to cope
with family issues and also
possibly a job of their own.
At the base Child
Development Center (CDC),
families are offered full-
time weekly care or hour-
ly drop-in care depending
on their needs, for infants
through preschoolers.
"We can house 246
children at our center.
However, the contract
was awarded last week for
the construction of a new
CDC on the base. The new
facility will be much larg-
er so this will allow us to
increase the number of chil-
dren we can take in to 302,"
explained CDC Director
Mary Grenier. "The major-
ity of the increases will be
the infant and pre-toddler
age groups because that's
where our waiting list is.
We'll probably increase the
toddlers by one room also.
And, obviously we will be
hiring more staff members."
Currently, the center has
openings for 3- to 5-year-
old children. They also offer
drop-in care. "Generally, for
2- to 5-year-olds, we have
space. For infants and pre-
toddlers, we do take them
but are limited on space for
drop-in care. Last month,
we had 166 drop-in visits
and we can still do more

especially in summer," con-
tinued Grenier. "Parents
can make reservations up
to 30 days in advance and
it's only $3 per hour, so it's
very reasonable. The only
thing we require is that
they come in before they
drop off and fill out some
paperwork. Then they can
just call and see if we have
space available."
The CDC is accredited by
the National Association
for the Education of Young
Children which means the
staff must adhere to strict
guidelines. Thorough back-
ground checks are con-
ducted on all staff members
and they are highly trained
with most having earned
their child development
associates certificate. Many
continue to work on their
higher educations in the
field. "Most of the people
we hire here have already
earned their certificate. We
have some really qualified
people working here. They
are the cream of the crop,"
stated Grenier.
"The curriculum we


use is called the Creative
Curriculum, which is
used Navy-wide. We base
our daily curriculum on
learning through play.
Our teachers work on the
children's physical growth
development, fine motor
skills, self-help skills, teach
them how to build self-
esteem and problem solv-
ing. We work on the skills
needed to help the children
become successful to move
onto the next level. We pre-
pare them for kindergar-
ten," Grenier said.
"We were also recently
part of a pilot program to
give our teachers laptop
computers in their class-
rooms so they can do obser-
vations and assessments on
their children. They now
input data to document
information about their
student's progress, create
lesson plans and parent
conferences. It's much like
elementary school. It's very
intense and impressive,"
added Grenier.
Parents are also allowed
to stop in at any time to


visit their children. "We
have an open door policy.
They can come in anytime
during the day to see their
children. We also have cam-
eras set up in each class-
room so parents can come
in and view their children's
behavior in the classroom,"
Grenier explained.
The center also offers the
Voluntary Pre-K Program
to children who will turn
four year's old by Sept. 1.
The program is free and
offered from 9 a.m. to noon
on regular school days. "We
have 36 spots at the center,
but they are already full
for next year. We are also
offering the program at the
old Youth Activities Center
without the wrap-around
care in the afternoon. We
only have a few sign-ups as
this time and need 18 chil-
dren to make it viable for
us to offer," said Grenier.
"So if anyone is interested
in signing up, please con-
tact us."

tary members, activated

Development Home Program


offers convenience of home childcare


By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO


A another childcare solution
parents may be interested
n looking into is the base
Child Development Home (CDH)
Program.
The CDH Program was devel-
oped to enhance and expand
childcare services for military
and Department of Defense fam-
ilies. It increases the capacity
and responsiveness of childcare
resources so all parents requiring
full time or intermittent care for
their child will be able to obtain
high quality care.
Navy certified CDH providers
offer a safe home environment
with a similar set up like a day-
care center but maintain the
home-like environment. "Children
placed in home care from the
central enrollment wait list reap
rewards of an enriching, devel-
opmental environment. Children
received nutritious meals, par-
ticipate in various developmen-
tal activities using the Creative
Curriculum and play in a clean,
safe and happy environment,"
stated CDH Program Monitor
Lisa Williams.
"CDH providers offer more
flexible hours than the Child
Development Center, however
each home can except only a lim-

ited number of children. We offer
homecare providers that care for
infants only, some who take care
of multi-age groups, before and
after school care, weekend care,
24-hour care and drop in care,"
continued Williams.
"We currently have 19 certi-
fied home providers both on and


off the base. Our providers are
very well-trained, they work real-
ly hard and spend about three
months just to get certified by the
Navy. Their homes are inspected
monthly and they are extremely
supportive to the families they
care for," she added.
A certified CDH Navy provider


can only be obtained through the
Morale, Welfare and Recreation
CDH Program. They are iden-
tified by their CDH flag posted
outside their homes and by their
Navy CDH certification certifi-
cate. All providers have liability
insurance.
"I feel that understanding child


development is key to a qual-
ity program and my providers
through training, experiences and
the overall talent; they really get
this concept," Williams said. "Our
providers complete daily observa-
tions on each child enrolled in the
program and uses these observa-
tions as a guide to develop indi-
vidual lesson plans to meet the
needs of the child's development."
According to Williams, the pro-
viders are dedicated, flexible and
strive to give the best care pos-
sible to the children they watch.
"They understand that a high
quality program for young chil-
dren is based on a knowledge of
child development. They balance
their home life and run a respon-
sible, safe and healthy daycare
home," remarked Williams.
"I am so honored and proud of
her and all our NAS Jax CDH
providers!"
New providers are always need-
ed. "If someone is looking to start
up their own business, there are
lots of children who need child-
care. Granted it's not for every-
one, we demand a lot of our pro-
viders, but we are here to help
them be successful caregivers,"
Williams said.
If anyone is interested on
becoming a home provider or is
looking for childcare in a home
setting, call Williams at 542-5381.

t ^


working with the Child
and Youth Program (CYP)
at NAS Brunswick, Maine.
"I'm very excited to be here
and am ready for some new
challenges and fun. With
the base closing there, I
was fortunate to be able to
stay with CYP and come
here," said Long on his first
day at the job. "I've been
working with kids for about
eight years. It's my career
and passion. I enjoy work-
ing with kids and helping
them become responsible


and good-character adults."
"I tried working in a class-
room as a teacher, but that
really doesn't suit my per-
sonality. In this job, I get to
help with homework, play
during recess time, do sci-
ence projects, work on the
computer; it's everything
all rolled into one. And I'm
still educating the kids and
helping them become posi-
tive individuals," continued
Long.
In the future, Long plans
to develop some new pro-
grams and bring in some
new ideas. "The Navy has
recently created a partner-
ship with 4H called the 4-H
Military Club so I'd real-
ly like to get that one up
and off the ground. I also


hope to continually devel-
op our summer camp and
school year programs," he
continued. "Just because it
worked in the past, things
can get old. So, I'm trying to
bring a fresh perspective in
and keep things new, enter-
taining, exciting and keep
the kids engaged with new
ideas."
The center is open each

weekdays, the center is

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy Public Affairs Officer
Anew program is coming
to NAS Jax to help mili-
tary families have an eas-
ier transition when it comes to
enrolling their children in school.
The School Liaison Program pro-
vides a link between the base,
local schools and military parents.
Overseeing this new program
is School Liaison Officer (SLO)
Dawn Mills, who has worked in
the Duval County school system
for many years and who was also
a Navy wife for the past 23 years.
"I am here to help by acting as
the communications and service
link between the base, military
parents and the local schools. I am
the advocate and transition per-
son," said Mills. "There is a huge
need for this program and that's
why it was created. Many people
leave the military because of the
transitions. It's hard for families
to relocate so often. Most military
families transfer at least six times
during a military career, so I'm
here to make this transition, com-
ing and going, a little easier for
them."
ooo


Mills covers five counties within
an hour drive of the base includ-
ing Duval, Clay, Baker, Nassau,
Putnam and St. Johns. For issues
outside her area, the SLO at Navy
Region Southeast can provide
assistance.
"This is a new program for many
bases and is a work in progress. I
think it's a wonderful idea because
it not only helps the families, but
will help school officials under-
stand the life of the military child
especially deployment issues," she
added. "It's such a multi-level pro-
gram."
Mills gives several examples on
how she can help military families
with school-age children. "If a par-
ent transfers in and they have a
special needs child, they can come
to me with their child's individu-
al education plan and I can help
them find a school to accommodate
them," she said. "Or, if a parent
transfers here in January and they
have a senior in high school who
is supposed to graduate in June
and they haven't taken the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test,
we can help with that to see if they
can be waived."
Other issues Mills will assist


Aaron Long, the new NAS jax Youth Activities Center director (left) and new NAS jax School liaison officer Dawn

with include state requirements,
graduation requirements, course
sequencing, school schedules,
deployment support, extracurric-
ular activities, records transfer,
school quality and providing refer-
rals both inside and outside the
military community.
"By being part of a military fam-
ily with two children, I understand
the difficulty students have with
these transitions. A lot of military
children miss out on opportunities
at school because they are consid-
ered 'transients,'" remarked Mills.
"I am here to ensure our military
children don't miss out on oppor-
tunities offered. I will be talking
with school officials and teachers
to help them better understand
the military lifestyle and am
attending school board meetings
to keep current on what changes
are being made in the different
school districts."


"Duval County will be offering
the OnCourse Program this year
which will help deployed parents
stay in touch with their child's
school. This program allows them
to log on to check attendance
records and test scores and help
them stay connected," she added.
Mills is currently working on


setting up here office in the Youth
Activities Center (Building 2065)
and attending some training class-
es. "As soon as I get set up and
finish training, I plan to hit the
ground running. It's a great pro-
gram and I am happy to be here
to help our military families," said
Mills.

Area cyclists ride in




memory of naval officer
By Miriam S. Gallet
NAS Jax Public Affairs Officer


A picture perfect morning greeted hundreds of area
cyclists as they rode on Highway 17, south of Green
Cove Springs, to the site where fellow cyclist Lt.
Cmdr. Jim Warmowski lost his life seven years ago.
The former NAS Jacksonville naval officer and avid
athlete was struck and killed while riding his bicycle on
a beautiful Sunday morning July 14, 2002, by a driver
who was under the influence of Methadone. Warmowski
was training for the prestigious Ironman Triathlon World
Championship in Kona, Hawaii.
He never got the opportunity to ride the 112 miles ride
across the Hawaiian lava desert on his bicycle, nor hear
the applause from the thousands of spectators that lined
the streets in 2002. Instead, his remains were interred
July 22 at the National Military Cemetery, Elwood, Ill.
"Lt. Cmdr. Warmowski was not only an avid cyclist, but
a loving family member and friend. He was also a great
patriot who loved his country and was willing to offer his
life in service to a cause greater than his own self-inter-
est," said Lt. Buster Williams, a Navy chaplain.
"A life of sacrifice for others is never a life lived in vain.
Today, we not only thank God for Jim's service but for all
the other great men and women who have lived sacrificial
lives and left such an honorable legacy," he added.
"We celebrate life together, life that is too precious to be
tragically lost by careless motorists on our highways."
One of the many cyclists participating was Maria
Pedrosa, captain of the Orange Park Cycling Team, who
said, "It is our honor to be here sharing the road with such
a phenomenal group of cyclists. I'm a strong believer that
actions speak louder than words. Participating in this

memorial ride is our way of demonstrating to drivers and
cyclists the importance of sharing the road and following
the rules of the road which results in safety of all."
Jacksonville cycling icon and North Florida Bicycle Club
(NFBC) member, Jeanne Hargrave, led the ride out of the
Fleming Island Winn Dixie parking lot followed by Team
Navy Jax cyclists and the rest of the peloton.
The cyclists rode south on Highway 17 for 11.2 miles to
the memorial marker. Williams led the group in prayers
and remembrance. Team Navy Jax members, Capt. Mike
Vernere, chief of nursing at Naval Hospital Jacksonville
and SKI Andrew Redmond of Aviation Support
Detachment Jacksonville, presented the memorial flowers.
Tears rolled down many faces when Taps was played by
MU3 Maxwell Garcia-Gonzales of Navy Band Southeast.


Capt. Mike Vernere, chief of nursing at Naval Hospital
Jacksonville, leads Team Navy Jax down Highway 17 to the
memorial site during the annual Share the Road Memorial
Ride in honor of Lt. Cmdr. Jim Warmowski.
The event concluded with refreshments and cyclists shar-
ing their memories of Warmowski.
The annual Lt. Cmdr. Jim Warmowski Share the Road
Memorial Ride is sponsored by the NFBC as a celebra-
tion of Warmowski's contribution to cycling, but also as a
reminder to the community of the need to Share the Road
safely with cyclists and pedestrians.
NFBC would like to remind all motorists that it's the
law motorists are required stay at least three feet from
cyclists.

FFSC: 'Truly embodies the idea that readiness begins at home'

From Page 1


and other work/life special-
ists who devote themselves
to the well being of service
members and their families.
During this period of
high-tempo deployments,
utilization of Fleet and
Family Support Centers
(FFSC) is at an all-time
high. FFSC provides infor-
mation and teaches practi-
cal skills that help service
members and families to
cope with a highly mobile
and sometimes-stressful
military lifestyle.
NAS Jax FFSC Director
Carolyn McCorvey ex-
plained, "Thirty years
ago Navy leaders saw the
need to put an agency in
place that focused on fam-
ily needs related to mis-
sion readiness. FFSC truly
embodies the idea that
readiness begins at home.
In my 10 years with FFSC,
we've seen a lot of won-
derful programs come on
board. The most recent is
our Individual Augmentee
Support Program, but we
also have added a number
of classes that help prevent
potential abuse by help-
ing Sailors and spouses to
improve their parenting
skills."
She added, "Any negative
stigma about seeking help
at FFSC has been removed
because Navy commanders
all the way up to CNO have
long ago bought into the
benefits of FFSC."
"From stress and anger
management, financial
planning and couples com-
munication to suicide pre-
vention, new-parent classes,
domestic violence preven-
tion, relocation and transi-
tion counseling and the
list goes on FFSC helps
make life more meaningful
for Navy and Marine Corps
families. Perhaps best of
all, every program is free, so
there's no reason not to uti-
lize our wide-ranging ser-
vices," concluded McCorvey.
"Congratulations to our
colleagues at Fleet and
Family Support Centers
for a phenomenal job,"
said NAS Jax Command
Chaplain (Cmdr.) Gerald
Felder. "The past 30 years

Sailors and their families.
have seen a true team effort
evolve between FFSC and
the Navy Chaplain Corps
to make sure we effectively
take care of the families,
and single Sailors, in all our
commands in the tri-base
region. I serve on several
boards and work closely
with Carolyn McCorvey on
a weekly basis to ensure our
spiritual and family coun-
selors work cohesively with
FFSC to serve the needs of
our personnel."
Felder added, "FFSC is
not only a partner with the
Chaplain Corps, but also
with other commands and
organizations to make sure
our people do not fall vic-
tim to the pressures of life
- and are well-prepared to
take on their assignments
in the fleet."
"The relationship between
command master chiefs and
FFSC is a 30-year testa-
ment to the Navy's commit-
ment to enhance the quality
of life for all military mem-
bers and their families,"
said NAS Jax CMDCM(SW/
SS) Jeff Hudson.
"Their counselors and
work/life specialists never
hesitate to come in early or
stay late to assist with all
phases of the deployment
cycle. We appreciate this
opportunity to show our
appreciation to the profes-
sionals at FFSC."
"I first worked with

cusses the value of FFSC to maintaining squadron readiness
with VP-16 Executive Officer Cmdr. Mark Melson.


FFSC in 1984 at NS
Philadelphia," said NAS Jax
MWR Installation Program
Director John Bushick.
"Since then, I've always
appreciated the strong,
cooperative effort that they
exhibit in complementing
our programs. That's very
evident in our childcare and
youth activities initiatives,
as well as their new-parent
support program."
Dave Faraldo, director of
the NAS Jax Navy-Marine
Corps Relief Society, said,
"We're delighted to be part
of this celebration. We work
hand-in-glove with FFSC
financial specialists, as well
as command financial spe-


cialists, to provide inter-
est-free loans or grants to
service members who need
money for emergency situ-
ations. We look forward to
the next 30 years."
Cmdr. Mark Melson, exec-
utive officer of VP-16, said
FFSC is an integral part of
the squadron's readiness
program. "Our ombudsmen
and command financial
specialists have a strong
relationship with Fleet and
Family Support Center. In
my first two months as XO,
I've already witnessed a
number of cases where they
helped our Sailors and their
families overcome some of
life's obstacles."

speaker Alice Stratton, a former deputy assistant secretary
of the Navy for force support and families, from 1985-89.
"My husband, Richard, was a POW in Hanoi from 1967
to 1973. And that made me a single parent of our two small
sons. Myself and other POW/MIA families were starved for
information. We needed help to deal with the stress and
uncertainties concerning our service members as well
as keeping our lives together. We advocated for ourselves
because at that time the Navy had no way to advocate for
us. After our husbands returned from captivity, we contin-
ued to build our advocacy for Navy families."
"In 1978, I was honored to attend the Navy's first family
awareness conference in Norfolk, Va. Despite a multitude of
naysayers, our goal was to improve the status of Navy fami-
lies in a time of shrinking resources some things never
change. God bless our Chief of Naval Operations at the
time, Adm. Thomas Hayward, who declared, 'We're going to
do this because it's the right thing to do.'"
"I was one of the principle organizers of the group that
recommended the FFSC concept to the Department of
Defense and presented it to the U.S. Congress 30 years
ago.
She said that in 1979, the first pair of Family Service
Centers (FSC) opened in Norfolk and San Diego. In 1982,
the first overseas FSC opened in Naples, Italy. Since then,
more than 100 centers have opened around the world. In
2001, FSC changed its name to Fleet and Family Support
Center.
"Now, 30 years since the first center opened, we must con-
tinue to evolve how we serve the readiness needs of our next
generations of military families. As always, resources are
scarce and we are tasked to do more with less. The lesson
for us today is to maintain close contact between the FFSC
and the Navy, its various commands and their ombudsmen
to remain proactive, not reactive, in supporting our spouses
and families. Thank you for your service, God bless you all,
and God bless America," said Stratton.

the executive officer and assumed command in May 2005.
During this tour he completed a multi-site deployment
to Diego Garcia, Bahrain, Kandahar, Afghanistan and
Djibouti deployment in support of Operation Enduring
Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
In June 2006, Yaw reported to the Naval War College
in Newport, R.I. as the U.S. Navy's representative to the
international program in the Naval Command College. In
July 2007, Yaw reported to the Naval Personnel Command
where he served as the assistant aviation captain detailer.
Yaw assumes command of a squadron that has been
marked by profound achievements during Fite's tenure
from August 2007 to July 2009. During this period,
the squadron earned the Cmdr. T.G. Ellyson Award for
aviator production excellence presented to the Navy's
most effective fleet replacement squadron; Golden Anchor
Retention Excellence award; back-to-back CNO Safety "S"
awards; and the Golden Wrench award for outstanding
maintenance a first for VP-30.
Additionally, the "Pro's Nest" FRS was awarded the
Blue "M" and Blue "H" for medical and wellness excel-
lence.
Moreover, under Fite's leadership, he shepherded and
championed the Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance
(MPR) community's comprehensive transformation plan
that will ensure the efficient and effective fleet integration
of the Navy's newest combat aircraft the P-8A Poseidon
and introduction of the BAMS unmanned aerial system.
By establishing the MPR Weapons School, Fite revolu-
tionized the post-FRS training continuum, which provides
highly trained warriors to the fleet. Of perhaps the great-
est significance, VP-30 continued its record of safe flying
operations under a high-tempo training environment. The
squadron recently achieved 45 years of mishap-free flying
totaling more than 435,000 flight hours.

VP-30 earns prestigious award


By Lt. j.g. Glenn Greenleaf
VP-30 PAO___
T he VP-30 "Pro's Nest" was
awarded the Association
of Naval Aviation's cov-
eted Cmdr. Theodore G. Ellyson
Aviator Production Excellence
Award for fiscal year 2007 on
July 10.
According to the citation, "The
Pro's Nest was chosen due to
their ability to demonstrate the
greatest production efficiency in
training the fleet requirement
for pilots, naval flight officers
(NFO) and aircrewmen within the
Chief of Naval Operations' (CNO)
approved syllabus time."
The award is named in honor
of Ellyson, who was the first
naval officer to undergo aviation
training and who was designated
naval aviator No. 1 in January


1914. Throughout his career,
Ellyson was instrumental in the
development of all facets of naval
aviation including the establish-
ment of the first flight training
sites, which were termed Naval
Aviation Camps, at Annapolis,
Md. and San Diego. The spon-
sor of this award is the Thomas
Group based in Irving, Texas. A
CNO-appointed awards com-
mittee selects five squadrons
which demonstrate the greatest
efficiency in meeting the fleet
requirement for pilots and naval
flight officers within the CNO-
approved syllabus time to receive
the award. One fleet replace-
ment squadron from Commander,
Naval Air Forces Atlantic, one
from Commander Naval Air
Force, US Pacific Fleet, one
Marine, and two training squad-
rons (one primary, one advanced)


from Chief of Naval Air Training
are selected annually.
The Pro's Nest executed 6,764
flight hours and 19,251 land-
ings in support of 1,919 sorties,
was awarded the AVCM Donald
M. Neal Aircraft Maintenance
Award, also known as the Golden
Wrench Award, and the CNO
Aviation Safety Award for 2008.
VP-30 continues their outstand-
ing record of 45 years and 433,000
mishap-free flight hours.
VP-30's forward-looking atti-
tude is a direct reflection of the
squadron's focal point -- train-
ing the next generation of mari-
time patrol and reconnaissance
aviators in multi-mission mari-
time aircraft. VP-30 consistently
strives to improve the training of
pilots, NFOs and aircrewmen in
order to support and defend our
country.

Sohl assumes command of


Fleet Readiness Center Southeast
From FRCSE PAO -


Capt. Paul Sohl
assumed command
of Fleet Readiness
Center Southeast (FRCSE)
July 10, when he relieved
Capt. Tim Matthews. Sohl
became the 38th command-
ing officer since the com-
mand was established in
1940.
FRCSE is the largest
tenant command on NAS
Jacksonville and the larg-
est industrial employer in
the Northeast Florida and
Southeast Georgia with a
workforce of nearly 4,600
military, civil service and
contract personnel. FRCSE
is one of seven Fleet
Readiness Centers com-
missioned by the Navy to
perform in-depth overhaul,
repair, and modification
of aircraft, engines, and
aeronautical components.
The guest speaker, Vice
Adm. David Venlet, com-
mander, Naval Air Systems
Command, spoke of the
rich heritage of aviation
maintenance at FRCSE.
"Since 1940, aircraft have
come here for mainte-
nance, repair, and over-
haul; whether the name
on the shingle said Repair
Department, Rework
Facility, or Aviation Depot.
But in 2006, more than just
the name changed. That
was the year the Navy
pushed repair capability as
close to the flight line as
possible. The historic move
was said to be an efficient
and effective integration
of maintenance, engineer-

Centers, during the change of command ceremony.


ing, and supply. Your con-
tribution is why our mis-
sion endures, because it is
carried out by people like
you people who want to
serve something greater
than themselves, and do."
Venlet also spoke of his con-
fidence in the new leader
of FRCSE including Sohl's
past experience as the com-
manding officer of the Test
Pilot School and his patri-
otism as a volunteer for
an Individual Augmentee
tour in Afghanistan.
Sohl spoke about how the
FRCSE workforce is vital to
the warfighter. "The Naval
Aviation Enterprise needs
those skills you provide to
fix aircraft, engines, and
components to keep the fleet


flying." As he explained
how FRCSE fits into the
broader scope of naval avia-
tion, he continued, "If our
aircraft aren't getting any
younger, and they're not,
and the new ones aren't
getting any cheaper, and
they're not, that puts Fleet
Readiness Center Southeast
right smack dab in the mid-
dle of the future of naval
aviation; and that's exact-
ly where we want to be."
Matthews assumed com-
mand of FRCSE in August
2007, and has been nomi-
nated for appointment
to the rank of rear admi-
ral and will report as
the Commander, Fleet
Readiness Centers in
Patuxent River, Md.

El Salvador

By Lt. j.g. Eric Watt
VP-45
With a population just under
7 million, El Salvador is the
smallest and most dense-
ly populated country in Central
America. At roughly 8,100 square
miles, it's about the size of New
Jersey, with about three-fourths of
the population.
These were a few of the facts I
looked up to make El Salvador seem
like a more familiar place; however, it
proved to be very different from what
I had imagined.
When we disembarked our vari-
ous modes of transportation (NALO,
C-130, P-3 Air), we were instantly
greeted with a very humid, hot cli-
mate: one that frequently registers
90 degrees or higher. Though this hot
humid heat is reminiscent of our sum-
mers in Jacksonville, the overwhelm-
ing fly population is a bit of a change.
Even stranger is the transit to work
in civilian attire.
Since we reside outside of FOL
Comalapa grounds, we are not permit-
ted to wear uniforms going to or from
work. This is definitely a departure
from the world of NAS Jacksonville.
Our first week proved to be chal-
lenging due to the operational
requirements of crews that were turn-
ing over with us, and the fact that
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was
in El Salvador for the Presidential
Inauguration. CAC 1, a few members
of CAC 5, and some maintenance per-
sonnel were the first to arrive.
Lt. Cmdr. Gerald Smith began
his turnover to become the VP-
45 El Salvador Detachment officer
in charge. AMCS Thomas Hall and
ATCS Eric Elkin, along with the
handful of VP-45 maintainers began
the turnover process with VP-5 while
crews instantly began flying.
Three aircraft were accepted into
the VP-45 inventory, but the need for
an aircraft to be dispatched to Brazil
complicated matters. Without our full

complement of aircrews and mainte-
nance, the fast turnaround from mis-
sion to mission was difficult, but relief
was not far away.
Near the end of the first week, a
C-130 with our packout from NAS
Jacksonville showed up with two VP-
45 members, while the rest of the
detachment arrived on the NALO
flight and P-3 Repo. By June 7, all
aircrew and maintenance personnel
were in El Salvador.
The first weekend here was largely
used to make sure all members were
settled in and applicable briefs were
given. By the middle of the second
week, all aircrews were available for
tasking on an established schedule.


Overall, everyone seems excited to
be here, helping the other counter
drug forces in the effort to stop the
flow of drugs through the Caribbean
and Pacific areas.
At any given time in the FOL, one
can see people hard at work in the
operations and maintenance con-
trol areas, briefs being given to air-
crews preparing for the day's events,
upgrading aircrew members studying
in the conference rooms, and mainte-
nance personnel preparing gear and
working to ensure the schedule is able
to run as planned.
The tempo is high, but VP-45 is
ready for the challenge.

parts and equipment for the
move to its new home at NAS Jax
Hangar 1122. "We can't wait to
get in our new place and get down
to business," said Gonzalez. "We
expect our fifth SH-60 Romeo to
arrive before the end of July."

support our ground troops,
including counter-IED
missions. Carrier-based
Prowlers are now being
replaced by the next-gener-
ation electronic attack air-
craft, the EA-18G Growler.
"As for rotary wing air-
craft, the transition to the
SH-60 Romeo and Sierra
models is well under way.
Tomorrow, I look forward
to sharing a Romeo cock-
pit with HSM-70 Skipper
Cmdr. Bill Walsh. The
Seahawk Romeo model com-
bines the capabilities of the
SH-60B and SH-60F with
a sophisticated new cock-
pit, avionics and mission
systems. The Sierra model
is replacing the Seahawk
Foxtrot and Hotel models.
Under our new helo orga-
nization, the HSL squad-
rons will be redesignated
HSM (Helicopter Maritime
Strike) and the HS com-
munity will be redesig-
nated HSC (Helicopter Sea
Combat).
"The E2-C Hawkeye, our
carrier-based tactical air-
borne warning and control
platform is another work-
horse of the fleet. The new
D model is going through
developmental testing right
now and is being built just
south of NAS Jax at the
Northrop Grumman plant
in St. Augustine. The plane
will be equipped with new
radar, avionics and a digi-
tal 'glass cockpit.'
"When it comes to anoth-
er workhorse, the P-3C, I
must tell you how proud I
am of the maritime patrol
and reconnaissance com-
munity. In the U.S. Central
Command theater, they
routinely fly unarmed
and unescorted over land
to gather intelligence and
provide direct reports to
ground combat troops. But,
as the P-3C celebrates its
40th year of operations, it's
also suffering through wing
fatigue issues that have
grounded about one-third of
the fleet. For now and into
the next few years, their
service life will be extend-
ed at rework facilities such
as Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast here at NAS
Jacksonville.

ties recently and examined
one of the five test aircraft
based on the Boeing 737-
800 airframe. The new sen-
sor array, digital worksta-
tions and weapons systems
bring a new level of lethal-
ity to the maritime patrol
community. The Poseidon
provides more combat capa-
bility from a smaller force
and evolving unmanned
sensors.
"The flexibility of sea-
based air power has been
proven over and over again
in both OIF (Operation
Iraqi Freedom) and OEF
(Operation Enduring
Freedom). Our men and
women are extremely
busy. Combat sorties are
approaching 3,000. The air-
crews and ship's company
on our carriers love what
they're doing and give it
their all, 100 percent of the
time.
"I always close my brief-
ing by expressing my
gratitude to our families.
The key to combat readi-
ness is making sure our
families are well taken
care through our infra-
structure of ombudsmen,
Fleet and Family Support
Centers, Navy-Marine
Corps Relief Society, and
command financial counsel-
ors. I especially applaud the
families of our Individual
Augmentees, who volunteer
to deploy and fill billets of
Marine Corps or Army per-


sonnel. We do this because,
'we enlist a Sailor, but we
retain a family,'" concluded
O'Hanlon.
Retired Navy Capt.
John Leenhouts, com-
mander of the Association
of Naval Aviation Bald
Eagle Squadron, thanked
O'Hanlon. "Our organiza-
tion's mission is to promote
awareness of naval aviation
in our local community,
as well as to garner U.S.
Congressional support of
Navy projects that enhance
the operational readiness of
our warfighters. Our thanks
go to Adm. O'Hanlon for
painting a comprehensive
picture of the aircraft, ships
and Sailors that will secure
our future.
"Thirty years ago, we
flew nine different aircraft
from our carriers which
presented many logisti-
cal challenges. Today, we
have a limited number of
platforms performing more
missions. An example
here at NAS Jacksonville
is the recent sunset of the
S-3 Viking, whose mission
was assumed by the SH-60
and F/A-18 communities,"
explained Leenhouts. "As
Adm. O'Hanlon showed us
today, the aircraft carrier
of the future will deploy
with variants of the F/A-18
Hornet, E-2 Hawkeye and
HS-60 Seahawk."
O'Hanlon began his naval
aviation career as an A-7

Navy spouses


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor


June is historically the month for weddings. Dating
back to ancient Rome and Juno, the goddess of
marriage, getting married in June was believed to
be 'lucky' or 'blessed' for a happy, prosperous marriage.
Today, June continues to be the popular and romantic
month for weddings and that includes military weddings.
This column is dedicated to our new fellow spouses to the
'MilSpouse Club.'
Congratulations on your recent marriage. As a new
Navy spouse, you are excited about building a life together
with your man or woman in uniform. Here are a few
basics to get you on the road to successful navigation of
Navy spousedom.
Schedule a trip to the ID Office with your spouse to
obtain your military dependent ID. Bring a copy of your
marriage license and birth certificate. Your dependent ID
is the key to accessing services and benefits as a spouse.
You will present it each time you access the base medi-
cal clinic, commissary (grocery store), Navy Exchange
(NEX), theatre, gym, bowling alley and other services on
base. Guard it like your driver license and Social Security
card.


SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE
The next stop is Pass & ID for decals for your vehicles.
Bring your driver license, vehicle registration and proof of
insurance. The decals go on your vehicle and permit you to
drive your vehicle on base.
Your service member will add you to DEERS (Defense
Eligibility and Enrollment Reporting System). Once you
are in the system you can enroll in TriCare (medical cov-
erage) and United Concordia (Tricare Dental Program).
You can enroll at the local military treatment facility near
you. There are several plan options available and you can
read about them online at www.tricare.mil. You can enroll
for dental online at www.tricaredentalprogram.com.
Learn your resources because many military marriages
begin right before an upcoming move or deployment.
Either event presents challenges. Knowing your resources
will help you sail through them.
The first resource is Fleet and Family Support Center
(FFSC). Each base has an FFSC where you will find
helpful and experienced staff offering classes and indi-
vidual support for you. Your base website contains contact
information for your local FFSC. The FFSC will intro-


duce you to additional resources such as Military One
Source, COMPASS, Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society,
local resources and much more.
Get connected with organizations and fellow spouses
who can assist you in building your new life as a Navy
wife.
The first person to contact is your command ombuds-
man. This fellow Navy spouse is a volunteer appointed by
the commanding officer of your Sailor's command. They
are trained as a resource for you with information, refer-
rals, communication and support. Your Sailor can get
their name and contact information from the Plan of the
Day/Week or the command website.
Each command has a Family Readiness Group or FRG.
This is a group of spouses just like you who get together
for friendship, projects, information and support. Entering
the world of military spousedom is both exciting and a
bit overwhelming but armed with resources and informa-
tion we can 'navigate' even the roughest of seas. Welcome
to the world of military spousedom, where you are truly
among friends.

Kon 'nichi wa Kadena!


By Lt. j.g. Chelsea Brunoehler
VP-45

It was an emotional goodbye
boarding North American
Airlines flight 1708 the
last VP-45 airlift to Kadena Air
Base in Okinawa, Japan. There
were feelings of melancholy as
we left our loved ones behind,
but also feelings of eager antici-
pation as 18 months of prepara-
tion reached its pinnacle and our
skills were to be called on in a
real world environment.
For many "Pelicans" this would
be their first deployment, their
first time out of country, and the
longest period of separation from
spouses and loved ones. For oth-
ers, this was a familiar feeling,
experienced six or more times
already, and the second or third


time in Seventh Fleet. Even for
the most experienced Sailors,
however, this was an emotional
day.
Fortunately, our over-stimu-
lated brains were eased by some
fairly luxurious accommodations
as we boarded the plane. With
only 109 Pelicans aboard a 200
passenger aircraft, most had one
or two extra seats for spreading
out. There were also four flight
attendants eager to serve us what
seemed to be two or three meals
per leg. Inflight videos helped us
take our minds off of home and
settle in for a long transit.
Three legs and 23 hours later,
we landed on a warm, sunny
Okinawa day. We were welcomed
by members of our squadron who
had detached earlier to begin


our transition with VP-5. The
sunny, humid free climate was
a welcome surprise, as we were
prepared for 100 percent humid-
ity and week-long rain storms.
The sun was only to last three
days, but it definitely helped us to
remain positive in the early days
of our arrival.
Almost immediately we were
engrossed in the mission of
Seventh Fleet. We joined the rest
of our Pelican comrades in orga-
nizing offices, accounting for our
pack-out, maintaining aircraft,
creating new charts, and flying
our birds. With only a few minor
setbacks in personnel accommo-
dations and bus routing, we were
well on our way to a successful
turnover and an effective pres-
ence.


Pelican crew completes Singapore Detachment


Lt. j.g. Nate Driessen
VP-45 PAO


Combat Aircrew 4 and a crew of 9
maintainers kicked off their 2009
7th fleet deployment with a detach-
ment to Singapore. They left Kadena Air
Base June 8 and returned June 17.
The crew traveled to Singapore to support
the annual Cooperation Afloat Readiness and
Training (CARAT) exercise, which Singapore
hosts. As the aircraft approached Paya Lebar
airfield, the crew was astonished with the scen-
ery and the view of hundreds of ships enter-
ing and leaving port. Although Singapore is a
major import/export hub, it was still surprising to


see the scale of shipping traffic that takes place
there. Upon arrival, it could not be ignored how
immaculate everything was kept. The vehicles,
buildings, sidewalks, and even the streets seemed
impeccably clean. It was very apparent that the
citizens of Singapore take great pride in their
country.
From the time they landed, the eager "Pelicans"
took in as much of the beautiful country as pos-
sible. The first few days of the detachment were
designated as free days, which were used to
make minor aircraft repairs, explore the local
culture and make sure all of the necessary prepa-
rations were made to participate in the detach-
ment. During their off time, the Pelicans enjoyed
some of the many historic and famous sites of


Singapore. Members of the crew participated
in the Singapore Night Safari, and explored the
Singapore Zoo where they were amazed at vari-
ety of wild life and up close experience they had.
They rode the world's largest ferris wheel, the 42-
story high Singapore Flyer, which gave a breath-
taking 360-degree view of the growing skyline,
historic landmarks, Marina Bay and the Singapore
River. Another attraction they visited was the
historic Raffles Hotel and Museum. The hotel
has experienced much adversity throughout its
122 year tenure, surviving the Great Depression,
Japanese occupation of Singapore, Liberation of
Singapore, World War II, and subsequently being
used as a transit camp for prisoners of war. It was
declared of national monument by the national


government in 1987.
The crew also shopped in the various districts
of town to include Chinatown, Little India and
the electronics centers.
A BBQ and symposium for all participants
to meet and discuss working together with their
various platforms kicked off the exercise June
11, with operations set to begin the next day.
Unfortunately, when it came time to fly in sup-
port of the exercise, the crew discovered an air-
craft malfunction, which would prevent their par-
ticipation. The crew proceeded to use their last
few days of detachment to continue experiencing
as much of Singapore as they could and preparing
themselves and the aircraft for the return trip to
Kadena and the deployment ahead.


New vitamin D recommendations unveiled regarding skin cancer


From The Skin Cancer
Foundation

T he Skin Cancer
Foundation recently
revised its daily vita-
min D intake recommenda-
tion for adults who have
limited sun exposure or
who practice photo-protec-
tion. The previous dosage
of 400 international units
(IU) of vitamin D daily has
been raised to 1,000 IU.
For children under the age
of 18, including infants,
the American Academy
of Pediatrics recommends
400 IU of vitamin D per
day. The foundation rec-
ommends that vitamin D
should be obtained from
a combination of dietary
sources and vitamin D sup-
plements.
"Based on the current
data, we feel comfort-
able recommending this
increase," said Warwick
Morison, chairman of The
Skin Cancer Foundation's
Photobiology Committee.
"We know it is well with-
in the safety limits set by
the US Food and Nutrition
Board and it may help alle-
viate vitamin D deficiency
which has been a growing
concern for people."
Vitamin D is essential
for bone health and has
been shown to have other
important health benefits.
Inadequate levels of vita-
min D are associated with
immune-related disease
such as type I diabetes,
hypertension and rheuma-
toid arthritis, as well as cer-
tain cancers. However, it
should be emphasized that
no causal relationship has
been established between
vitamin D levels and these
diseases.
There are three sources of
vitamin D: (1) exposure to
UV and UVB radiation, (2)
certain foods, and (3) vita-
min D supplements.
Ultraviolet (UV) radia-
tion (UV) from the sun and
tanning beds is a proven
human carcinogen and is

responsible for DNA dam-
age that can result in skin
cancer as well as depressed
immunity and photo-aging.
About 90 percent of non-
melanoma skin cancers are
associated with UV from
the sun and many cases of
melanoma have been attrib-
uted to UV radiation.
Ultraviolet B (UVB) is
the portion of sunlight that
stimulates human skin to
produce vitamin D. The
limited benefits of exposure
to UVB radiation cannot be
separated from the harmful
effects. Therefore, the saf-
est and recommended way
to obtain adequate vitamin
D is through a combination
of diet and vitamin D sup-
plements.
Vitamin D can be
obtained from oily fish
(salmon, mackerel, sar-
dines) and cod liver oil as
well as from fortified orange
juice and milk (both with
100 IU per 8 oz.), yogurts,
and some cereals such as
Kashi, Grape Nuts and
Total (100 IU per serving).
Supplements are readily
available and inexpensive.
Practicing a comprehen-
sive sun protection regimen
to avoid the risk of skin
cancer is essential.
The Skin Cancer
Foundation's prevention
guidelines include: seeking
shade between 10 a.m. and
4 p.m., daily use of an SPF-
15 or higher sunscreen,
and wearing sun-protec-


tive clothing including wide
brimmed hats and UV-pro-
tective sunglasses. For the
full guidelines, visit www.
skincancer.org.

FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS
How do I know how much
vitamin D I should be taking?
The Skin Cancer Foundation
recommendsthatyouobtain 1,000
IU daily through a combination
of food and supplements. You
should discuss your adequate
vitamin D supplement intake with
your physician. A blood test that
measures one's vitamin D level
(assessed as 25-OH vitamin D)
is widely available.
Can too much vitamin D (via
supplements) cause problems?
Vitamin D can be toxic in
high doses. The U.S. Food and
Nutrition Board states that an
intake of 2000 IU per day is
the upper limit for safety. If you
are concerned that you might
be getting too much vitamin D
consult with your doctor. A blood
test that measures one's vitamin
D level (assessed as 25-OH
Vitamin D) is widely available.
If I use sunscreen, will it make
me deficient in vitamin D?
Proper sunscreen use and
other photo-protection practices
may decrease vitamin D
synthesis. However, there are
significant proven benefits from
protecting your skin against the
harmful effects of UVB radiation.
That is why the safest and

20 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, July 16, 2009



'Pro's Nest' families enjoy special day

By Lt. j.g. Glenn Greenleaf -i
VP-30 PAO I T II I U 3


VP-30, with the generous
help of local organizations
and companies, hosted an
Independence Day celebration
with a family fun day event held
at Patriots Grove July 1.
The event featured a 3-on-3 bas-
ketball tournament at the base
gym and a car, truck and motor-
cycle show. Vehicles ranged from
a 1970 Datsun and late model
lifted pickup trucks to Harley
Davidsons and metric cruisers.
The NFL Jacksonville Jaguars
mascot, Jaxson de Ville, was in
attendance with the Roar cheer-
leader squad to entertain families
and provide autographs and photo
opportunities.
The Jacksonville Axemen pro-
fessional rugby team, their cheer-
leading team, the Axe Maidens,
and the "Sweethearts for Soldiers"
ladies from the Professional
Cheerleading Alumni shared the
spotlight as well. The Axemen
demonstrated their skills during
a brief pick-up game with the VP-
30 team.

Department provided a fire truck
and an ambulance for the children
to explore. MWR Liberty Cove
contributed Sumo wrestling suits,
human hamster balls, bounce
castles, a rock climbing wall,
and a dunk booth. Tania DeVito


from "Abrakadoodle" provided
crafts for the youngest attendees.
Carolyn Crawford painted faces,
while DJ Mark Whitted, both

Fleet Replacement Squadron VAW-120 "Greyhawks" recently sent a training detachment to
NAS Jacksonville so student pilots could practice aircraft carrier landings at OLF Whitehouse.
The E-2C Hawkeye aircraft is easily recognized by its unique, eight-blade, composite propel-
lers. The Hawkeye is the Navy's carrier-based early warning and control radar plane, and has
served in the fleet since 1973.


E-2C and C-2A students


practice at OLF Whitehouse


By Clark Pierce
Editor


S student pilots of VAW-120 are prac-
ticing their carrier-arrested land-
ings July 6 17 at Outlying Field
Whitehouse. Soon after they return to
NAS Norfolk, Va., they will translate their
training into qualification landings on
board an actual aircraft carrier.
"There simply isn't enough capacity on
the outlying fields in Virginia," said AFCM
Dave Defonzo "We detach to NAS Jax for a
couple of weeks prior to landing qualifica-
tions on an aircraft carrier, so our student
pilots can hone their landing skills at OLF
Whitehouse."
VAW-120 is the Navy's E-2C Hawkeye
and C-2A Greyhound Fleet Replacement
Squadron (FRS). The Greyhawks became


the single-site FRS in 1994 when VAW -
110, its west coast counterpart, was decom-
missioned.
As a result, VAW-120 is the sole training
site for all E-2C and C-2A aircrew for the
essential missions of carrier airborne early
warning and fleet logistics support.
The E-2 Hawkeye is the Navy's carrier-
based tactical battle management airborne
early warning, command and control air-
craft for carrier strike groups.
The twin engine aircraft carries a crew of
five and has a 24-foot diameter radar rot-
odome attached to the upper fuselage.
The C2-A Greyhound commonly
referred to as the COD (carrier onboard
delivery) lands onboard aircraft carriers
principally to deliver cargo, mail, and pas-
sengers.
