One of the four C-1 30T Hercules logistics support aircraft of VR-62 that will soon be homeported at NAS Jacksonville. The aircraft is operated by a crew of seven, consisting of three pilots, two
flight engineers and two loadmasters. More than 90 Selective Reserve billets are available for pilots, loadmasters, flight engineers, and a range of maintainers and administrators.



VR-62 'Nomads' arriving Saturday


By Lt. Cmdr. James Lawson
VR-62 Public Affairs
July 25 will begin a new
chapter in the history of
NAS Jacksonville when, for
the first time ever, a squadron of
Navy C-130T Hercules aircraft
is welcomed to its new home at
Hangar 1000.
Fleet Logistics Support
Squadron (VR) 62, formerly
known as the "Nor'easters," is
arriving courtesy of the 2005


BRAC decision to close NAS
Brunswick, Maine. This is the
fourth relocation in VR-62's 24-
year history and each time the
squadron took on a new name
appropriate to its location.
However, its new name of
"Nomads" won't change should
the squadron ever have to relocate
again. The first of the Nomads'
four aircraft to land Saturday will
be piloted by VR-62 Commanding
Officer Cmdr. Christopher


Thomson. NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack
Scorby Jr. will join squadron
members, families and friends to
officially welcome Thomson and
the Nomads.
The squadron has billets for
35 pilots, 85 active duty 130
Selective Reservists. The exec-
utive officer is Cmdr. Rodney
Turbak and the command master
chief is ( II)( 1 I H.J. Marshall.
VR-62 was established July


1, 1985 at NAF Detroit, Mich.
under the operational control
of Commander, Fleet Logistics
Support Wing. In February of
1988, the squadron began pro-
viding logistics support flights
operating the McDonnell Douglas
C-9B "Sky train II" aircraft.
Following nine years of outstand-
ing airlift service to the fleet and
with the closing of NAF Detroit,
the VR-62 "Motowners" were
ordered to change their homeport.


This move also included a transi-
tion to the newly acquired C-130T
Hercules aircraft. In 1994, VR-
62 officially changed its home-
port to NAS South Weymouth,
Mass., and was renamed "Mass
Transport."
The squadron received their
first of four C-130T aircraft in
January of 1995. Following sev-
eral months of rigorous training,

'Red Lancers' help p I

stop illegal drug flow =


By Lt. j.g. Jon Moore
VP-10 PAO
Allied naval forces with the aid of
VP-10 aircrew seized and destroyed
roughly 10 tons of narcotics in
international waters dubbed the "Hash
Highway." The narcotics, mostly hashish,
were estimated to be worth $70 million.
This constitutes the largest seizure of
drugs this year.
"The seizure of these drugs takes money
out of the hands of those financing ter-
rorists in the region," said Vice Adm.
Bill Gortney, commander of Combined
Maritime Forces. "The smugglers need to
know that coalition forces are patrolling
the seas and skies above. These efforts
send a message to all would-be smugglers
that we are here and we won't tolerate
drug trafficking in international waters."
On July 7, Combat Aircrew Ten (CAC-
10), flying the P-3C Orion, was conduct-
ing routine maritime surveillance in the
Gulf of Aden when they identified a large
dhow (a traditional Arab sailing vessel
with lateen sails) sailing 150 miles south-
east of Salalah, Oman.
The "Red Lancers" relayed the contact
to a nearby British warship. Later, crew
members from the warship boarded the
dhow, discovered and destroyed the nar-
cotics "that further enable their drug traf-
ficking," said Lt. Nathan Christensen, a
spokesman for U.S. Naval Forces Central

Command/5th Fleet. The dhow and crew
were then released.
"Disruption and destruction of the drugs
was deemed more important than holding
the folks accountable," added Christensen.
"It's exciting to be a part of something
that's making a difference," said Lt. Susan
Mendenhall, CAC-10 mission commander.
"This is a great reward for the maintainers
and the operators to see something tan-
gible for all their hard work."
Hashish (more commonly called hash)
is a potent form of cannabis produced by
collecting and processing the most potent
material that female marijuana plants
naturally generate as part of their growth
cycle. Hashish is an illegal substance in
the United States and many other coun-
ties.


HS-3 'Tridents' move to


Norfolk, redesignated HSC-9
By Clark Pierce
Editor


In a move with little
fanfare, HS-3 one
of NAS Jacksonville's
most notable helicopter
squadrons changed its
homeport to NS Norfolk,
Va. The transition is part
of the Navy's Helicopter
Concept of Operations
(CONOPS) plan that will
reduce the number of plat-
forms needed to fulfill the
fleet's rotary wing mis-
sions to two the SH-60R
(Romeo) and the SH-60S
(Sierra).
"The HS-3 "Tridents"
were re-designated HSC-
9 on June 1," said HSC-9
Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Scott Starkey. "We are the
first HS squadron at NAS
Jax to transfer to Norfolk,
where our pilots, aircrew
and maintainers are train-
ing to get the qualifications
they need to operate the
Sierra. We will perform all
the same missions except
for antisubmarine warfare,
which is part of the Romeo's

Someday it will be quiet


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor

Last week's column, in which
I expressed frustration about
being home with the kids this
summer, garnered advice from older
parents whose kids are now grown.
They told me that although things
seem "tiring" (their word, not mine
- I would choose something stronger)
right now, the boys' childhood will
pass quicker than I might expect.
It didn't seem that way on Saturday
when Dustin and I took the boys to a
high school baseball game. The sta-
dium is just a few blocks from our
house, so we walked. Well, Dustin
and I walked. Ford rode his bike (the
one he can't get started by himself),
Owen rode his Big Wheel (the one
that requires a push every few feet),
and just to fit in, Lindell took his
pushcart (the one he used when learn-
ing to walk). By the time we got to the
field, Dustin and I were responsible
for carrying all three forms of trans-
portation, as well as carrying Lindell
on our shoulders.
It seemed as if our three young boys
were a tornado between us. In fact,
I don't remember talking to Dustin
at all during the game. We were too
busy chasing kids. Afterward, we had
plans to take the boys for ice cream,
but once we dragged the bike, Big
Wheel and pushcart home we were
too tired to think about it. The boys,
of course, went about their business
wrestling in the backyard. They came
inside occasionally to say, "He hit
me!" "He looked at me funny," or "He
took my baseball bat."
The next day, we took the boys to


FROM THE HOMEFRONT


church. It was a special service hon-
oring local graduates and three high
school seniors gave the sermon. Two
of the seniors were males. Stuck in
the space between being a boy and
a grown man, they had broad but
skinny shoulders, smooth faces, long
arms and legs, and voices that some-
times cracked. At once they seemed
like someone's baby, and then I saw
glimpses of the men they are becom-
ing.
There was a time when I would
have identified with the seniors on
stage. But on Sunday, I identified
with the seniors' mothers. Could they
remember days like the one we'd just
had at the ballpark? Did it seem like
only yesterday to them? Now that
their boys were grown, had the moth-
ers finally gotten all the stains out of
their furniture and the smell of dirty
socks and shoes out the closets? Did
they have Play-Doh in their cabinets?
Was dried-up syrup smeared beneath
the kitchen table? How long had it
been since they changed a diaper? Put
a Band-Aid on a knee?
When was the last time those long,
lanky boys curled up beside their
mothers and laid their heads on their
shoulders?
The children in the congregation
were excused for Sunday School. I
walked Ford and Owen to their class-
room, and on the way back into the
sanctuary, climbed a set of stairs.
Purely by reflex, I put out my right
palm, as if to catch the hand of a tod-
dler and help them up the steps. For


almost a decade, a pudgy hand has
reached up for mine at every flight of
stairs or at every street crossing. But
on this day, there was no one to help.
Not knowing what else to do with
my hands, I tucked them into my
pockets, only removing them to wipe
away a small tear before I took my
seat in the sanctuary again.
At the next baseball game, my old-
est boys knelt down on the concrete
and pressed their faces to the chain
link fence. They desperately wanted
to catch a foul ball. For all their new
long, awkward legs and knobby knees,
Ford and Owen looked like babies in
the shadows of the young men on the
field. They watched with their mouths
held open in perfect "Os."
One of the players on deck noticed
my boys watching him from above. He
turned around and smiled, then gave
them a thumbs-up. Later he passed
them a ball through the fence.
Yes, someday my boys will be all
grown up. I'll be somewhere in the
stands or the pew, alone with my
peace and quiet, and feeling sad
because I don't have a bike to push
home.
Maybe I won't even remember the
last time I kissed a bruised knee. But
if my boys grow up to be the kind
of young men who turn around and
smile at two little kids in the stands,
it all will have been worth it. And
when they have their own little
"tornadoes," I will smile and laugh,
because I get to send those back home
to their mother.


San Antonio: Something for everyone


By Erica Penia-Vest
Special contributor


When I was a little girl, I slept
with my most treasured pos-
sessions under my bed. As a
travel writer, I love sharing details
about all the wonderful destinations
I visit throughout the United States,
but this story is different. Although I
can't wait to tell you about this trea-
sure of a destination, the little girl in
me still wishes I could hide it under
my bed so that it would be mine and
mine alone. My favorite destination
is San Antonio, Texas.
A family city at its very core, San
Antonio is a large city with a small
town personality. People are friend-
ly and the city is easy to navigate.
Yet, it has all the benefits of a big
city you would be hard-pressed to
find better food and entertainment
anywhere. If you are traveling with
your family and are looking for an
amusement park adventure, Six
Flags Fiesta Texas and Sea World
both call San Antonio home. If you
enjoy American history, discover per-
sonalities like Daniel Boone, Davy
Crockett and Jim Bowie at the Alamo.
If you want a romantic weekend with
a loved one, you can't miss the San
Antonio Riverwalk. Consisting of a
series of walkways along the San
Antonio River located one story below
street level, this beautiful grotto is
lined with shops, restaurants, pubs
and beautiful gardens. No wonder it's
the number one tourist attraction in
ooo


FREEDOM To TRAVEL


Texas.
For my most recent trip to San
Antonio, I stayed at Hotel Contessa,
a beautiful, all-suite hotel on the
Riverwalk. The rooms are spacious
and elegant, with fantastic vistas of
the city. Best of all, they offer great
military discounts, including a per
diem package that includes lodg-
ing and meals at the government
per diem rate. With a great restau-
rant, Las Ramblas, located on site
that caters to couples and children
alike, it's a great hotel for families or
a romantic getaway.
Why travel to Mexico (which isn't
smart to do these days) when you
can enjoy a two-nation vacation right
in downtown San Antonio? Market
Square, also known as "El Mercado,"
is a Mexican marketplace filled
with authentic crafts, food, music,
gifts, clothing and more. Taking up
three-square blocks, it is the larg-
est Mexican marketplace outside of
Mexico.
My favorite destination would not
be complete without my favorite res-
taurant. In this case, my two favorite
restaurants are La Margarita and Mi
Tierra Caf6, both located in Market
Square.
Mi Tierra Caf6, open 24 hours,
serves the best breakfast in town.
And with a seating capacity of 500,


you will never have to wait long. The
walls are covered with 70 years of his-
tory that give the caf6 a flavor that
can't be mimicked anywhere else.
Just down the square, La Margarita
is the place to go when you feel like
kicking up your boots and having a
good time. A rich atmosphere, indoor
and outdoor dining and live music
make every night feel like a fiesta.
The menu contains all the usual
Mexican staples, but you can't miss
their charcoal grill and seafood.
I have traveled extensively in
Mexico and believe that you won't
find more authentic Mexican food
than at these two restaurants. Add
in the colorful atmosphere and the
sound of the mariachis playing and
you might forget you are still in the
United States.
Mark Twain said that San Antonio
was one of America's unique cities
and he was right. What makes San
Antonio stand out is that it offers a
one-of-a-kind travel experience. The
city has a spirit and a vibrancy that
stays with you. The colors of Market
Square, the lights of the Riverwalk
and the smell of the food will haunt
you, beckoning you to return.

Antonio or military discounts around
the U.S., log on to www.guidetomilit-

Fleet Forces Command


discusses IAs, summer safety, and more


By MC1(SW/AW) Bleu Moore
U.S. Fleet Forces Public Affairs
A dm. Jonathan Greenert
recently returned from
a trip to the Gulf Coast,
where he talked directly with
Sailors in Jacksonville, Fla.;
Mayport, Fla.; Gulfport, Miss.
and Stennis Space Center, Miss.
about how they are doing before
and after deployment. Greenert
received feedback and ideas on
how to continue to improve the
entire IA process.
"It is always good to get out and
talk to our constituency, as I like
to call them," said Greenert, "The
focus of my trip was to speak to
IAs and to see the littoral combat
ship that recently went through
builders trials."
"We are making progress with
our IAs both with the in-pro-
cess and the out-process areas,"
said Greenert, "I think the folks
believe an IA tour is a good thing
for their career. Recently E-7
through E-9 advancement per-
centages were 10 to 13 percent
above the Navy average; E-6 and
E-5 were one to two percent bet-
ter than the average. In the end,

Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command Adm. Jonathan Greenert meets with a group of individual augmentees
from NAS Jax and tenant commands during his visit to NAS Jacksonville June 29. The trip to the Jacksonville area
provided Greenert, the Navy's executive agent for the IA Continuum, a chance to talk with Sailors who have
recently or are about to serve on IA tours in support of enduring conflicts. He also discussed summer safety
issues.


IA is our support to their family,
and the centerpiece is a good com-
mand coordinator. We are finding
that it pays in great dividends."
During the trip, Greenert vis-
ited the Navy's newest warship
USS Independence (LCS-2). The


Navy christened Independence
Oct. 4, 2008, during a ceremo-
ny at Austal USA in Mobile, Ala.
Independence is the Navy's sec-
ond littoral combat ship and fea-
tures a distinctive trimaran hull.
"This is an all aluminum ship.


I will tell you it's fast; it's maneu-
verable; it's agile, and it's got
great volume and adaptability,"
said Greenert, "This is cutting-
edge technology right in front of
your eyes, and it will fit very well
in our maritime strategy. It's a


great ship, and I look forward to
integrating her into the fleet."
Greenert also had a message
to pass to Sailors about summer
safety.
"If I could ask the folks to do
one thing, it's manage your risk,"
said Greenert, "If you are going
to a barbecue, remember that
alcohol and sun will dehydrate
you. We have regrettably lost two
Sailors in the last few weeks due
to their lack of sufficient swim-
ming skills. In both cases, they
were not wearing life vests, so we
need to be careful," he said.
Greenert also reminded Sailors
about the Navy's current policies
on DUI and how to exercise safe
drinking habits.
"Our policy on DUIs is a tough
policy, and we will continue to
ratchet down on this," said
Greenert. "Driving under the
influence does not affect just you,
it affects your friends, and your
family and your command."
"The Navy's new policy states
if you incur a second DUI or DWI
you will be processed for admin-
istrative separation," he said, "I
want to remind folks that buzzed
driving is the same thing as drunk
driving, and it's not a good idea."


Hey MoneyChic!: I've paid off all of
my credit cards and have built an emer-
gency savings account. Should I continue
to contribute my extra money to savings?
I sometimes wonder if I should consider
investing, but with the recent stock market
plunge, maybe I shouldn't? What do you
think?
MoneyChic says: If you've established
two months worth of salary into a saving
account, then you may just be ready to
take the next step in your financial plan
and consider investing.
Start by researching mutual fund compa-
nies. Stick with those that are no load and
charge low expense fees, two companies I
like are Fidelity and Vanguard.
Often times you'll need a lump sum to
open the account and from there you can


set up regular monthly deposits into your
investment account. I highly recommend
this choice as it is a convenient and secure
way to invest.
Just by investing $100 per month, your
account could grow up to $52,039 in 20
years. There is some risk with invest-
ing and nothing is set in stone, but if you
have time on your side, mutual funds will
generally out perform a standard savings
account.
Go for it!

VP-16 honors WWII veteran with flyover


By Lt. j.g. Zach Goldstein
VP-16 Public Affairs Officer
ALockheed P-3C crew of Patrol
Squadron (VP) 16 paid tribute to
an honored veteran and a patriarch
of the P-3 program June 2 with a flyover
of South Florida National Cemetery in
Palm Beach, Fla. as Alex Hewko was laid
to rest.
A decorated World War II pilot,
Hewko was the son of Ukrainian immi-
grants. He grew up with eight siblings
in Northampton, Pa. The eldest of five
brothers, Hewko was the first to join the
military.
He enlisted in the Navy two months prior
to the attack on Pearl Harbor and briefly
served at NAS Jacksonville before deploy-
ing overseas.
Between 1941 and 1944 his four broth-
ers followed in his footsteps and joined the
service.
He flew missions as a pilot of the
Lockheed PV-1 Ventura bomber in the


South Pacific attacking transports and
evading Japanese Zeros. He earned the
Bronze Star and Purple Heart for injuries
he sustained from ground fire during a
raid.
After being honorably discharged as a Lt.
j.g. in 1945, his dedication to his beloved
service continued when he relocated to
Philadelphia, Penn. and worked in avia-
tion supply where he was program director
of the P-3 Orion for 25 years.
In a tribute to Hewko, Cmdr. Anthony
Corapi, commanding officer of VP-16, stat-
ed, "It was an honor to pay respect to Mr.
Hewko. He was a World War II hero and
stalwart of the P-3 community."
One of the pilots of the VP-16 flight, Lt.
Jay Haddock, wrote in an email to the
squadron, "This flight probably meant as
much to me as any other flight I have ever
flown in the Navy. The more I read about
this man and his four brothers who served
and survived WWII, the more I am thank-
ful and proud to have been part of this
event."

Jacksonville MEPS honors local fallen hero


From the Jacksonville
Military Entrance
Processing Station


On June 12, the Jack-
sonville Military
Entrance Processing
Station (MEPS) honored a
Soldier from Orange Park
who made the ultimate sac-
rifice to the nation while
on a rescue mission dur-
ing Operation Anaconda in
2002. Sgt. Bradley Crose, a
22-year-old Army Ranger
was killed in action March
4, 2002, during a firefight
with insurgents over the
battle on Robert's Ridge.
With standing room only

American treasure who not
only lived up to the Ranger
Creed, but truly epitomized

men and women who make
our community and nation

Crose, an Orange Park
High School graduate,
enlisted into the Army in
1998, beginning first with
a trip to the Jacksonville
MEPS. After working with
a recruiter, he, like thou-
sands of others hoping to
join the Armed Forces

Affairs


Naval Facilities Engineeing
Command (NAVFAC)
Southeast held its first
"Bring Your Kid to Work Day"
event at its headquarters build-
ing aboard NAS Jacksonville July
16. Seventy children attended
the event, some of which even let
their parents tag along to enjoy
the morning's planned activities
with them.
Children attending the event
ranged in age from preschool
through high school and even col-
lege students who sought insight
on possible career and educational
decisions.
Capt. Doug Morton, NAVFAC
Southeast commanding officer,
kicked-off the event, greeting the
children and sharing with them
what NAVFAC Southeast does to
support our Sailors.
"Today you will learn about
what we do here at NAVFAC
Southeast," said Morton. "Some of
the things we build are great big
hangars for airplanes and helicop-
ters, hospitals, office buildings and
houses for our Sailors. In order to
do all of that construction we need
the help of a lot of different people,
including your mom or dad."
During the event the children
were able to create contracts, get
hands-on experience with computer
parts and safety equipment, learn
about construction and equip-
ment, interact with wildlife and
make their own unique insects,
climb aboard a fire truck, forklift
and electric car, look through the
scopes of survey equipment and

lize Geographic Information Systems
in an effort to make their own bag of

Command Information Office:
Children had hands-on time with piec-
es and parts of technology both new
and old and learned how to build a
computer. A webcam setup allowed the
children to 'zap' each other on the com-
puter screen, giggle eruptions ensued
with each 'zap'.
Capital Improvements: Showed the
children a variety of construction proj-
ects utilizing blue prints and 3D puz-
zles and how to get properly dressed in
personnel safety equipment necessary
at constructions sites.
Environmental: A menagerie of
plant, insect and animal artifacts was
displayed for the children to interact
with along with a live box turtle and
king snake. They showed a video on
work done at bombing ranges and
spoke about the importance on being
good stewards of the environment. A
craft center allowed the children to
build a bug of their own design and
imagination.
Fire Protection: Children learned
about fire prevention and safety devic-
es in their home and smoke detectors
that talk. They also took a close look
at one of our own NAS Jacksonville
fire trucks.
Office of General Counsel: With
the use of animation, the Office of
Counsel explained how a bill becomes


a law and the legal research that is
involved with the work and construc-
tion projects that NAVFAC Southeast
performs. A current law student
working as a law clerk for NAVFAC
Southeast also spoke with the children
about law school and the work he does
for the Navy.
Public Works and Transportation:
An electric car and forklift gave the
children the opportunity to climb
aboard and learn about an environ-
mentally friendly vehicle and licensing
and safe operating procedures required
for industrial equipment.
Safety: Safety specialists spoke
with the children about the impor-
tance of working wisely and working
safely in every job. Children learned
how to properly fit hardhats, tried on
safety glasses and full and half-mask
respirators and learned different ways
to wear various types of ear protection.
"I volunteered to present because
I believe that it is important for the
children to know that the Navy has
lawyers that are dedicated to the
Navy and its mission," said NAVFAC
Southeast Head Counsel Cathy Horan.
"Hopefully, someday the children
will consider becoming lawyers for the
Navy as their chosen profession."
All of the presenters echoed these
same sentiments. They wanted to
share with the children what their
parents do at work and inspire them
with the possibilities and potential
they each possess.
Myrna Martinez, NAVFAC


Southeast environmental engineer,
brought her 5-year-old son, Julio with
her to work.
"I believe that the most important
thing the children will take away from
the event is that they feel welcomed at
mom or dad's work," said Martinez.
She is already anticipating Julio-
who enjoyed climbing on the vehicles,
petting the king snake and watching
the bombing range videos-asking
when he can come back to work with
her.
"I think the biggest thing about this
even is that it goes from 2D to 3D. We
tell our kids about what we do at work
and maybe show them some pictures
of what we do every day but for them
to come in here and actually see what
we do everyday is really important
for them," added Erico Latham, who
brought his two children, Benjamin, 5,
and Amara, 3, to work with him.
NAVFAC Southeast Executive
Officer Capt. John Rice, whose own
daughter attended the event, traveled
with the high school and college-aged
group to provide additional informa-
tion on the educational needs and
training required for the employment
opportunities at NAVFAC Southeast.
After a full morning of hard work
and learning, the children and their
parents were able to enjoy a picnic
lunch provided by the Seabees at
Patriots Grove. In addition to lunch,
the Seabees brought with them a hum-
vee and a transport truck for the chil-
dren to enjoy and climb on.

The stuff


of true champions


By Chaplain
(Lt. Cmdr.) Atticus Taylor
CPRW 11
Former Olympian
and ex-heavyweight
boxing champ
Muhammad Ali report-
edly said, "Champions are
made from something they
have deep inside them a
desire, a dream, a vision -
they have to have the skill
and the will. But the will
must be stronger than the
skill."
Some people believe that
just because they are not
singled out, somehow they
are not appreciated. While
on occasion their contribu-
tion may seem unnoticed or
un-applauded, it should be
clear to them if they were
not doing their work well,


the majority of us would
not experience the success
we enjoy.
An ancient writer once
said, "We know there is
praise for every man who
with quiet, though undistin-
guished, dignity performs
his task."
The challenge for all of us
then is to discover the deep-
er meaning for the work
that is required of us on a
routine basis.
We must learn that great-
ness of character, similar to
other forms of art, comes
about through dedica-
tion and perseverance.
Therefore each person will
need to attain the calm
assurance that our passion
to persevere out weighs our
necessity for greatness.


August is Cataract


Awareness Month

By Lt. Hristos Tsingelis
Naval Branch Health Clinic Mayport
A according to the American Academy of
Ophthalmology, about 20.5 million Americans age
40 and older have cataracts. More than half of all
Americans develop cataracts by age 80.
Cataracts cloud the eye's clear lens, similar to a win-
dow that is "fogged" with steam. When the lens becomes
cloudy, light rays cannot pass through it easily and vision
becomes blurry. Cataracts start out mildly and have little
effect on vision at first. But as the cataract becomes more
dense, so does its impact on vision.
See your eye doctor if you experience painless blurring
of vision, sensitivity to light and glare, double vision in
one eye, poor night vision, fading or yellowing of colors or
frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions.
Although cataracts usually develop as part of the
aging process, they can also result from other factors too.
Currently, there are no medications or exercises that will
help cataracts to disappear. When they do begin to inter-
fere with daily activities, they can be treated surgically.
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology,
cataract surgery is one of the safest and most frequently
performed surgeries in the United States, with more than
1.6 million surgeries performed each year. After surgery,
vision is improved in most patients.
Remember, cataracts are detected through a comprehen-
sive eye exam. Early treatment may save your sight.
People between the ages of 18-60 should get an eye exam
every two years. People 61 and older should be screened
annually. A person should see the eye doctor more fre-
quently than the recommended re-examination interval if
new ocular, visual or systemic health problems develop. A
comprehensive eye exam is an important part of your pre-
ventative health care needs.

After COMPTUEX, Fallon next for 'Dusty Dogs'


By Lt. j.g. Craig Famoso
HS-7 Public Affairs Officer

S-7 recently re-

turned from a de-
manding underway
period with USS Harry S.
Truman (CVN 75) Carrier
Strike Group 10. The squad-
ron, assigned to Carrier Air
Wing 3, demonstrated its
tactical prowess during the
Composite Training Unit
Exercise (COMPTUEX).
The exercise is one of the
squadron's final steps in
preparation for an upcom-
ing fall deployment in sup-
port of the Harry S. Truman
strike group.
COMPTUEX is conduct-
ed by commander, Strike
Training Fleet Atlantic to
qualify the carrier and its
air wing for "blue water"
operations. The blue water
certification enables the
ship and air wing to conduct
flight operations in the open
ocean environment without
requiring a land-based air-
field that aircraft can use as
a divert in the event of bad
weather or aircraft emer-
gencies. It is an essential
part of the carrier's expe-
ditionary effectiveness and
ensures that the air wing
can safely operate from the
carrier anywhere in the
world.
HS-7 flew numerous com-
bat search and rescue train-
ing missions simulating the
rescue of downed aviators
behind enemy lines in for-
eign territory. The squadron
practiced firing M-240 and
GAU-16 machine guns at
surface and ground targets.
"Dusty Dog" pilots increased
their proficiency using their
Seahawks' forward-looking
infrared (FLIR) against spe-
cial targets.
Additionally, HS-7 took
part in multiple antisub-
marine warfare missions.
Dusty Dog crews success-
fully operated with ships
and other airborne units of
the Truman strike group
and launched with very
short notice to intercept a
U.S. submarine acting as an
enemy submarine that had
snuck into the carrier strike

group's inner zone.
Lt. Jonathan Dorsey, Lt.
Tom Van Dam and the crew
of "Dusty 613," successfully
intercepted and destroyed


the submarine with a simu-
lated torpedo.
HS-7 also provided mul-
tiple aircraft to support
anti-terrorism force protec-


tion (ATFP) missions and
worked closely with ships


and airborne platforms to
protect the strike group
from simulated hostile small
boat attacks. Several ATFP
exercises provided oppor-
tunities for the Dusty Dogs
to practice this critical skill
and enabled Carrier Strike
Group 10 to operate safely
and efficiently during diffi-
cult straits transits.
Scenarios such as these
allowed the squadron to
hone its skills across its
entire mission set and pro-
vide a well-trained asset to
Carrier Strike Group 10.
The squadron is now
deploying to NAS Fallon,
Nevada, home of the Naval
Strike and Air Warfare
Center (NSAWC) the
only Navy facility where an
entire carrier air wing can
conduct integrated training
in realistic battle scenarios.
The base includes four
bombing ranges, an elec-
tronic warfare range and
a 14,000-foot runway (the
Navy's longest) making
Fallon a unique, one-stop
training facility.
The four-week training
evolution in Fallon is con-
ducted approximately three
months before its overseas
deployment and just prior
to each air wing's final joint
warfighting exercise.
The NSAWC staff at NAS
Fallon works with the car-
rier air wing to emphasize
integrated tactical engage-
ment of wing assets as a
unified warfighting element.
HS-7 will be refining its
operational capabilities in
desert and mountain envi-
ronments at NAS Fallon,
through August provid-
ing yet another opportunity
to sharpen the Dusty Dogs'
combat readiness.

In this February 2009 photo, an aviation boatswain's mate signals an HH-60H Seahawk from
the HS-3 "Tridents" to take off from the supply ship USNS Lewis and Clark (T-AKE 1), part of
Combined Task Force 151.

SH-60 Seahawk
The Navy Seahawk series is a twin-engine, medium lift, utility and assault helicopter used for
anti-submarine warfare, search and rescue, drug interdiction, anti-ship warfare, cargo lift and special
operations.
The SH-60B Seahawk is an airborne platform that deploys sonobuoys and torpedoes in an anti-
submarine role. Based aboard cruisers, destroyers and frigates, it also extend the range of the ship's
radar capabilities. The SH-60F is carrier-based. The HH-60H, also aboard carriers and ashore, is
used for search and rescue and logistics missions. By 2015, the only models of Seahawk in the Navy
will be the MH-60S "Sierra" and the MH-60R "Romeo."
U.S. Navy Fact File



HS-3: Now HSC-9, will fly


the new MH-60S 'Sierra' helos


From Page 1


Sea Combat Wing Atlantic (HSCWL) flying
Sierras. The HC squadrons were first to
receive the Sierra to replace the H-46 Sea
Knight and H-53 Sea Stallion," explained
Starkey.
The Tridents recently gave away the last
of their SH-60F and HH-60H birds to other
squadrons at NAS Jacksonville and also
flew a couple of helos to the 'boneyard' at
Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona.
"We'll start flying Sierras in September
under the purview of Fleet Replacement
Squadron HSC-2. After we pass our wing
inspection, we expect to write our first
flight schedule by mid-October. At full com-
plement, HSC-9 will deploy eight SH-60S
Seahawks with six on the carrier and two
on the supply ship," concluded Starkey.
HSC-9 will be the Sierra sister squad-
ron to HSM-70 (the first Romeo squadron
based at NAS Jacksonville) in Carrier Air
Wing (CVW) 8 aboard USS George H.W.
Bush (CVN 77).
The Tridents have served the fleet since
1952, when the squadron flew the Piaseki
UH-25B. In the early 1960s, HS-3 was the
first Atlantic Fleet squadron to operate the
SH-3A Sea King, and, in 1991, the first to
operate the SH-60 Seahawk. Now, they are
the first East Coast squadron to transition
to the Sierra variant of the Seahawk.
HS-3 Milestones
Beginning in 1962, the Tridents sup-
ported NASA recovery efforts from USS
Intrepid (CVS-11). Astronauts Carpenter,
Grissom, Young, Collins, Gordon, Conrad,


McDevitt, Scott and Schweickart each
ended his space journey with a ride aboard
a Trident SH-3A Sea King.
In 1988, HS-3 completed the first six-
month SH-3H deployment aboard USS
Hayle (DD-997), a Spruance-class destroy-
er, without direct carrier support.
In 1990, the Tridents enforced U.
N. sanctions against Iraqi trade while
deployed on board USS Saratoga in the
Red Sea. They flew the first Helicopter
Visit, Board, Search and Seizure (HVBSS)
with a special forces boarding team to
"take down" a hostile merchant ship dur-
ing Operation Desert Shield/Storm.
In 1999, the USS Theodore Roosevelt
Battle Group transited the Suez Canal to
the Arabian Gulf, where HS-3 flew in sup-
port of maritime interdiction operations
and enforced no-fly zones over southern
Iraq. A successful HVBSS to a freighter
violating U.N. sanctions seized $3.5 mil-
lion in contraband. During this demand-
ing deployment, HS-3 lifted over 1.8 mil-
lion pounds of cargo and completed over
2,000 deck landings.
In 2005, the Tridents flew more than
600 flight hours to transport 148 passen-
gers and 25,410 pounds of cargo during
earthquake relief operations in Pakistan.
Also in 2005, HS-3 began integrat-
ed operations with the British Joint
Helicopter Force in Iraq, flying more than
113 combat missions and 230 flight hours
in support of British security and stabil-
ity operations, including troop inserts and
extracts, convoy escort, riverine operations
and logistics in Southern Iraq.

Electronic recycling


Photos by Jane Beason
Billie Brownfield, NAS Jax assistant hazardous waste manager, maneuvers a pallet of dis-
carded electronic equipment including copy and fax machines, computers, monitors and
hard drives into a 55-ft. trailer supplied by Creative Recycling Systems Inc. The company
picks up the refuse at no charge to the station and transports the load to its Tampa recycling
center.


Creative Recycling Systems
Driver Jeff McCary counted
76 pallets of discarded
electronic equipment collected
by NAS Jax Environmental
Department. It represents a
cost avoidance of $150,000 in
disposal fees since the program
began in 2008. For information

Raise environmental awareness


By Bill Raspet
NASJax Pollution Prevention
Manager


What is an Envi-
ronmental Man-
agement System
(EMS)? The International
Organization for Standard-
ization defines environmen-
tal management systems
as, "That part of the over-
all practices, procedures,
processes and resources for
developing, implementing,
achieving, reviewing and
maintaining an environ-
mental policy."
EMS focuses on environ-
mental management prac-
tices rather than the activi-
ties themselves. It provides
the structure by which cer-
tain activities can be car-
ried out; it ensures opera-
tor training and that proper
procedures are in place but
doesn't specify methods or
frequency of sampling.
The EMS allows Federal
agencies and facilities flexi-
bility to adapt the system to
their needs and priorities.
The Environmental
Management System
(EMS) at NAS Jacksonville
manages and maintains
environmental compliance
and promotes continual
improvement. The Navy
requires full conformance
to EMS standards by Sept.
30, in order to fulfill parts
of Executive Order13423.
Success of the Station
EMS requires everyone's
involvement. The bound-
aries of EMS incorpo-
rate most of the Station's
fence-line, plus, outlying
field Whitehouse and the


Rodman bombing range.
Everyone should under-
stand the NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer's
Environmental Policy. It
consists of environmental
aspects that are elements
of the Station's activities
that can potentially interact
with the environment.
Each of us impacts the
environment when we use
electricity, generate solid
waste instead of recycling
and contribute to sewage
generation. Whether you
work in an office or a han-
gar, each activity has an
inherent impact to energy,
solid waste and sewage.
Spend a moment think-
ing about how your actions
relate to resources like
energy, water, trash and the
environment. Some actions
have a direct and obvious
effect like leaving lights
on when not needed. Other
actions have hidden effects
like when you throw recy-
clables in the trash and
indirectly reduce proceeds
from the recycling program
that helps the Sailor. NAS
Jacksonville's current tar-
gets are:
Energy use reduc-
ing energy consumption by
three percent annually;
Water Quality reusing
water for irrigation by 2013

Commanding Officer Cmdr. Christopher
Thomson. "About 68 percent of our reserv-
ists reside in Maine, and most will not
accompany the squadron down to Florida -
so there are great opportunities for reserv-
ists in the Southeastern U.S. to join our
unique tactical transport squadron," said
Thomson, who will pilot one of the Nomads'
four C-130T Hercules aircraft to its new
home in Hangar 1000 at NAS Jacksonville
on July 25.
There are currently about 90 vacant
Selective Reserve billets available.
Opportunities include pilots, loadmas-


ters, flight engineers, a range of main-
tainers, supply clerks and administrators.
VR-62 flies approximately 12, two-week
detachments per year, throughout the
Western Pacific, Middle East and the
Mediterranean.
Additionally, they are tasked by the
Navy Air Logistics Office to perform world-
wide missions that have, in the past, taken
them to nearly every state in the U.S., as
well as Ireland, Scotland, Palau, India and
the Seychelles.
"Despite our temporary loss in manpow-
er, we're going to maintain the same oper-
ational tempo. I'm certainly excited by the
challenges that our transfer is bringing,"
said Thomson. "We expect a bright future
down in Northeast Florida, and while it
will be hard to leave Maine, I think that it
will be an exciting time for the squadron."
VR-62's proud Selective Reservists have
full-time civilian jobs. As with all reservists,
they are protected under all rights ensured
by the Uniformed Services Employment
and Reemployment Rights Act.
If you are interested in affiliating with
VR-62, email VR-62 Career Counselor AT1
Mary Hipkins at mary.hipkins@navy.mil.


VR-62: C-130 squadron coming in from Maine


From Page 1
VR-62 began its opera-
tional commitments, send-
ing detachments to Sicily,
Japan and Bahrain in sup-
port of worldwide naval
operations.
The Base Realignment
and Closures (BRAC) com-
mission ordered the dises-
tablishment of NAS South
Weymouth and VR-62 was
again ordered to change
their homeport. In 1996, the
squadron relocated to NAS
Brunswick, Maine, and was
renamed the "Nor' Easters."
Today, VR-62 remains an
integral part of fleet sup-
port having transported in
excess of 29,500 passengers
and over 29 million pounds
of cargo since receiving the
C-130T aircraft.

Children head to Discovery Canyon at VBS

By KayeeuLaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO I- k't <


It was another success-
ful year for Vacation
Bible School (VBS) at
the NAS Jax Chapel last
week as 98 military chil-
dren headed to Discovery
Canyon (this year's theme)
to participate in a wide
variety of activities offered
by a a group of dedicated
adult and teen volunteers.
Some of the activities
included arts and crafts,
classroom lessons, music
sessions and games.
As each day began, the
children were ushered into
a main room where they
were seated on the floor to
participate in an energiz-
ing sing-along session, fol-
lowed by the lesson of the
day presented by Chaplains
(Cmdr.) Gerald Felder, (Lt.)
Tom Bingol and (Lt.) Buster
Williams.
From there, they were
split up according to age
groups and sent to various
places to create such arts
and crafts as owl wall deco-
rations, special boxes and
suncatchers, to music class
to prepare for a presenta-
tion for families and friends
the last day of VBS or to
their classrooms to learn
their lessons.
They also enjoyed a nutri-
tious lunch each day, pre-
pared by the male volun-
teers who commandeered
the kitchen again this year.
"I really like coming here
especially when I create
stuff like the box we made
yesterday to put things in. I
also really like the animals
and bugs we are learning
about and being with my
friends," said 6-year-old
Devlyn Gonzalez.
"I really like Vacation
Bible School, it's fun and I
get to make things and sing
new songs. I've also met
some new friends," added 8-


Vacation Bible School volunteer Melissa Riley teaches a class
about how to deal with storms in your life to a group preteens
as part of the this year's theme "Discovery Canyon."

year-old Christiana Felder.
VBS is run each year by
volunteers who are given
a curriculum to follow and
who adapt each of their les-
sons to their own individual
teaching style. This year,
22 adults and 10 teens vol-
unteered to help out with
the program.
"We have a great group
of adults who come back
every year to help out. And
some of the children who
have gone through this
program year after year,
who are now 13 and can't


participate, have chosen to
volunteer here," said Grace
Heffner, who coordinates
VBS here each year.
"They help feed the chil-
dren, clean up after lunch,
assist the teachers by pass-
ing out material and help
with arts and crafts proj-
ects. They also reassure
the children. It can be a
bit overwhelming here for
the younger children so
they take them under their
wing."
This year's theme,
"Discovery Canyon," fea-


tures five canyon creatures,
each representing a differ-
ent word and Bible story.
"Every activity the children
participate in relates to the
word and character of the
day from the arts and
crafts to the stories they
discuss in their classrooms,"
explained Heffner.
Each year, the program
holds a special mission
project to collect items for
an organization that helps
others.
This year's project was
close to home as the chil-
dren were asked to bring in
canned goods and non-per-
ishable items to be donat-
ed to the NAS Jax Food
Locker, which is now locat-
ed at the chapel.
"There are many junior
Sailors who seem to be hav-
ing financial problems and
who use the food locker so
we wanted to help out. It's
military children helping
other military children,"
added Heffner.


The musical team led by Vanessa Pence, Connie Rose Seeley,
and Deb Felts get the children revved up during the morning
praise session at Vacation Bible School.

Navy Lodges now offer guests 'breakfast to go'


From Navy Exchange
Service Command


Navy Lodges guests can
now get a light breakfast
in the morning thanks
to the Navy Lodge Program's
new "Breakfast to Go" Program.
The breakfast offered will vary
depending on the Navy Lodge.
"The 'Breakfast to Go' program
has been rolled out to all Navy
Lodges in the United States with
outstanding response from our
guests," said Michael Bockelman,
vice president, Navy Exchange
Service Command (NEXCOM)
and director, Navy Lodge


Program. "By offering our guests
a light breakfast in the morning,
we're giving them an even better
value for their money."
Guests staying in a Navy Lodge
in the United States will be able
to pick up a "Breakfast to Go" at
the front desk. The breakfast,
which consists of a snack/break-
fast item and beverage, is avail-
able each morning for every guest
staying at the Navy Lodge.
Larger Navy Lodges in the
United States, such as San Diego
and Norfolk, Va., will offer guests
a full continental breakfast each
day. "Navy Lodge San Diego


has already opened its


expand-


ed 'Breakfast to Go' room," said
Bockelman.
"By offering our guests a
continental breakfast in the
morning, we estimate a fam-
ily of four will save about $150
for a six-night, five-day stay."
Beginning this fall, overseas Navy
Lodges plan to give each guest a
welcome bag. The bag will consist
of snacks, breakfast items, bottled
water as well as information on
the area all in a reusable cloth
bag. This expanded program will
provide military members on per-
manent change of station orders
food options upon their arrival
until they have time to go to the


commissary.
Navy Lodge provides official
travel accommodations to all
Navy and military service mem-
bers around the world at its 43
locations. Navy Lodges have over
sized guest rooms, which offer
amenities including queen-sized
bed, sofa, a desk with a computer
hookup and task lighting. Free
local calls, coffee and newspa-
pers as well as convenient on-
base parking are also available.
All Navy Lodge rooms are air-
conditioned, have cable TV with
Showtime, a DVD/CD player,
direct-dial telephone service and a
kitchenette complete with micro-


wave and utensils. Navy Lodges
also feature housekeeping service,
vending machines, video rental
service and guest laundry facili-
ties as well as handicapped acces-
sible and non-smoking rooms.

tory or to make a reservation, call

Understanding the post-9/11


By Risie Howard
JAGC Summer Intern

Since Sept. 10, 2001 there

have been increasing mon-
etary benefits for you and
your immediate family members.
On June 30, 2008, President
Bush signed into law a new
Veterans Education Assistance
Act called the Post 9/11 GI Bill.
The new bill is transferrable.
Transferability is a retention
tool and is based on time in the
armed forces whether active duty
or selected reserves. Members on
active duty who separate or are
discharged prior to September
10, 2001 and subsequently affili-
ate with the selected reserves
may qualify for transferability if
all other criteria are met. Read
on for more details.
What are the minimum require-
ments for eligibility?
Service members must have
served 90 aggregate days or more
of active duty, beginning on or
after September 10, 2001.
Are there exceptions to the min-
imum requirements for eligibil-
ity?
Yes. Individuals honorably dis-
charged for a service-connected
disability who served 30 contin-
uous days after September 10,
2001, may also establish eligibil-
ity.


So what exactly do I qualify for
under the Post 9/11 GI Bill?
(1) Tuition and fees paid direct-
ly to the institution, not to exceed
the most expensive in-state
undergraduate tuition in your
chosen state of study (active duty
individuals may receive the total
amount of tuition and fees); (2) A
monthly stipend paid based on the
BAH of an E-5 with dependants,
in same zip code as the school
(education online or by correspon-
dence may not qualify); (3) Up
to $1,000 per year for books and
supplies; (4) Up to $2,000 toward
licensure or certification tests;
and (5) Up to $1,200 per year for
tutorial assistance. Individuals
will generally receive 36 months
of full-time educational benefits.
The benefits are only payable for
approved training and education
programs offered at colleges and
universities.
Okay, so I qualify for all of
these benefits if I served at least
90 days of active duty after Sept.
10, 2001?
Not exactly, the maximum basic
benefit is earned after serving 36
months of active duty or after 30
days with a service-connected dis-
ability discharge. Benefits are
pro-rated to a minimum of 40 per-
cent of the basic benefits based on
time served, from 90 days to 36
months.


Service Academy commitments,
ROTC scholarship graduate com-
mitments, and active duty served
as a requirement for student loan
repayment does not count toward
the minimum eligibility require-
ments.
I heard something about being
able to transfer benefits to my
dependent. Is that true?
Yes. However, there are addi-
tional requirements that must be
satisfied before benefits can be
transferred.
Transferring benefits to a
spouse requires six year of active
service with a commitment to
serve an additional four years of
active service. Transferring bene-
fits to a child requires 10 years of
active service with a commitment
to serve an additional four years
of active service. Members with
at least 10 years of active ser-
vice yet either standard policy or
statute prevent them from com-
mitting another four years may
transfer benefits if they commit
for the maximum time allowed by
policy or statute.
Members with 20 years or more
of active service before Aug. 1,
2010 require no additional ser-
vice to transfer benefits. Members
eligible for retirement after Aug.
1, 2009 and before Aug. 1, 2012
have reduced additional service
requirements.


Individuals who transfer bene-
fits and thereafter fail to meet the
additional service obligation may
be liable to the VA for the amount
of used benefits. Benefits may
also be divided between the ser-
vice member and a dependent, or
between two or more dependents.
Keep in mind that the individual
transferring the benefit retains
the right to revoke or modify the
transfer at any time.
May my dependents) or I use
the Post 9/11 GI Bill while I'm on
active duty?
Yes, however you or your spouse
will only be entitled to tuition and
fees; not the monthly stipend,
books and supplies. If the benefit
is transferred to an eligible child
the monthly stipend, books and
supplies are included.
How long do I have to use Post
9/11 GI Bill?
Generally, benefits are payable
for 15 years following the individ-
ual's release from active duty. If
the benefits are transferred to a
dependent child, there is no time
limit, but the child may not use
them after reaching age 26.
May I use the Post 9/11 GI Bill
for education already completed?
No. The Post 9/11 GI Bill is only
applicable for active duty mem-
bers of the armed forces for edu-
cation pursued on or after Aug. 1,
2009.


GI Bill


What if I already quali-
fy for benefits under the old
Montgomery GI Bill or another
GI Bill?
Look before you leap. While you
may be entitled to more than one
educational benefit, you may also
be required to make an irrevo-
cable choice of which benefit you
wish to receive. The Post 9/11
GI Bill is not always the most
financially beneficial selection, so
compare GI Bill benefits before
deciding.
So, how much does it cost to
enroll in the Post 9/11 GI Bill?
Enrollment is free. In fact, if
you have already paid $1,200
under the Montgomery GI Bill
and elect the Post 9/11 GI Bill, a
portion of your contribution will
be refunded in your last monthly
housing allowance payment.
Any individual considering the
Post 9/11 GI Bill should first con-
tact their education services offi-
cer. Additional information may

NAVFAC civilian keeps water flowing in East Africa

From NAVFAC Southeast
Public Affairs I


Naval Facilities Engine-
ering Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast
Environmental Remedial Project
Manager Benjamin Kissam
returned to work June 11 after
a three-month detail with the
Combined Joint Task Force
(CJTF) drilling wells and per-
forming hydrogeologic assess-
ments in East Africa.
Kissam volunteered after a call
went out for a rotation assign-
ment in Eastern Africa to employ-
ees identified as geologists or
hydrologists in the NAVFAC com-
munity database. The position
description was for on-site techni-
cal support to drilling water wells,
with Camp Lemonier, Djibouti
listed as the primary location.
"The hook was the chance to
drill in the African Great Rift
Valley," admits Kissam. "To gain
direct knowledge of how the U.S.
military and CJTF, actually exe-
cute the 'Three Ds' (development,
diplomacy and defense) approach
in the war on terror was an addi-
tional perk to the opportunity."
Kissam's commitment and cour-
age to volunteer for an assign-
ment that assists in fighting the
war on terror embodies the Navy
Ethos.
The 91-day assignment took
Kissam to a variety of locations
throughout the East African
countries of Djibouti, Ethiopia
and Uganda.

The Tennessee National Guard 775th Engineers drill at Chekeihti, Djibouti,
southwest of Camp Lemonier, along the Ethiopian border. A hand-pump
well was installed for the nomadic Afar people, who generally don't allow
photos to be taken.


The assignment was to provide
on-site support to the military
well-drilling teams in East Africa.
The team helped determine well-
screening intervals, well-com-
pletion methods and document
boring logs as well as collect
and analyze water samples, and
record data results. They also
reviewed proposals for new well-
drilling locations and performed
other hydrogeologic assessments.
Hydrogeology is the branch of
geology concerned with water
occurring underground or on the
surface of the earth. According to
Kissam, "It's basically rocks, drill-
ing and water wells."
In his primary role as a hydro-


geologist, Kissam provided tech-
nical support to the CJTF-HOA-J-
34 Engineers with water resourc-
es. His hydrological assessments
helped determine if a site was
suitable to drill including acces-
sibility of rig and equipment for
the site, proximity to desired loca-
tion for usage and success prob-
ability.
The results of this ongoing work
provided clean and safe drinking
water to many people in need.
Residents often overlook the sani-
tary condition of available water
when the need is great and so
little water is readily accessible.

Benjamin Kissam stands in front of a flooded Wadi (a riverbed that con-
tains water only during times of heavy rain), north of Dire Dawa, Ethiopia,
along the Somalia border. After watching a dump truck struggle to cross
the Wadi, his group decided not to risk their vehicle.


make clean water accessible for
those living in the region.
Many people benefited from the
team's efforts and were grateful to
receive the clean drinking water.
Kissam said the three-month
detail delivered a unique, life-


time experience to work with the
geology of the African Rift Valley
system and help residents of the
region.
While this assignment was
a first for Kissam, he said it
wouldn't necessarily be the last.


Navy Medicine personnel

Navy support personnel and
Marines.
"I feel really fortunate to
be a part of the school," said
Cmdr. Deborah Roy, a Navy
nurse. "This is a terrific way
to get everyone together and
practice as a team."
Camp Pendleton is the only
