HS-15 'Desert Lions' back from Iraq
By Lt. Brandon Alamo
HS-15 Public Affairs Officer
The flight line at NAS
117 was filled with
families and friends Aug.
4 and 5 as they eagerly
awaited the return of loved
ones from the HS-15 "Red
Lions" detachment known
as the "Desert Lions."
The detachment of 64
personnel and four heli-
copters spent five months
supporting the joint special
operations command based
in Balad, Iraq.
"This was a mission Navy
helicopter crews train to all
the time," explained HS-
15 Commanding Officer
Cmdr. Larry Getz. "It's dif-
ferent than our usual boat
tour, because we detach
out directly to a land-based
command. Whether it's
Navy SEALS, Army Green
Berets or other special oper-
ations forces, we're ready to
Getz added, "This was a
very rewarding deployment.
One of the best things is
that we brought our aircraft
and people home safely. As
a commanding officer, you
have to trust your people to
do their job effectively- and

Getz's wife, Stacey, was
hesitant about the Red
Lions doing their first land-
based deployment overseas.
"It's natural to be concerned
about them being based on
the ground in Iraq, but it
was a fantastic experience
for them. There's nothing
worse than the day they
leave but there's noth-
ing better than today," she
Capt. Andy Whitson, com-
mander, Carrier Air Wing
(CVW) 17, said the squad-
ron did a fantastic job.
"Prior to deployment, they
completed three months of
desert training that was
really challenging. It's cer-
tainly a non-traditional
mission when compared to
an aircraft carrier deploy-
ment. These pilots and air-
crew had to go through a
completely different mind-
set. The maintainers also
had to deal with things
they're not used to because

Individual Augmentees are Sailors and
civilians who are filling individual billet
requirements for various combatant com-
manders, DoD organizations, and other fed-
eral agencies around the world.
These uniquely talented and dedicated
individuals provide key and critical skills
to the nation's security efforts. They are an
important, relevant and indispensable part
of the campaign.
Since 9/11, more than 73,000 Sailors and
civilians have served on IA tours in support
of "enduring conflicts." The Navy is making
a difference in places like Iraq, Afghanistan,
the Horn of Africa and the Philippines. As
an IA, Sailors and civilians jointly perform
critical jobs throughout the world, serve as
ambassadors for the Navy, and gain invalu-
able Joint Coalition and interagency experi-
ence that enrich their careers.
"We [NAVFAC Southeast] stay in con-
tact with the IAs to provide them support
and learn about what they are doing while
deployed. We also keep them abreast of what
is going on back home at their command,"
"I can remember when I was on an IA and
it was always nice to hear from your friends
and family while you are deployed."
As long as NAVFAC Southeast has civil-
ians, military and family members on IA or
deployment, they will continue to support
them with phone calls, e-mails and care pack-
ages. NAVFAC Southeast plans to send more
care packages during the holiday season.

Last month, Dustin and I cel-
ebrated our 10th wedding anni-
It was a significant milestone
for military marriages because the
Uniformed Services Former Spouse
Protection Act (USFSPA), enacted in
1982, allows local courts to consider
military retirement pay "dividable
marital property" after the husband
and wife have been married 10 years,
and when all those years coincided
with creditable service by the uni-
This is either a brilliant or nasty
little legal act depending on which
side of the argument you stand. Most
dependent military spouses think
USFSPA underscores their role as an
invaluable asset to their significant
other's career. After all, without us
staying home to watch the kids, pay
the bills and take care of the home-
front, the service member wouldn't be
so emotionally and physically free to
give 100 percent to the military.
In most cases, we travel from state
to state with our loved one, and we
give up our chance to work for a com-
pany for an uninterrupted amount
of time and earn our own retirement
pay. That sacrifice is our contribu-
tion to the service member's career.
USFSPA recognizes this in the case of
Some service members despise
USFSPA because they must give up
half of their retirement to someone
who no longer wears their ring or
shares their name. It must be hard, in
hindsight, to remember how much the
former spouse sacrificed and contrib-
uted in order for the service member to
make it to retirement in the first place.
I joked with Dustin about USFSPA
on our anniversary. Before we hit the
10-year mark, he would tease that I
shouldn't get sassy with him because
I wasn't yet eligible for his retirement
pay. Now the joke is on him: "Don't
you get sassy with me, Dustin, I've
already put in my 10 years."
All this jocularity became signifi-
cantly less funny when very real deci-
sions appeared on our horizon. In
Spring 2010, I will take advantage
of Military One Source's new Career
Advancement program to go back to
school and get my masters degree. My
goal is to secure a teacher's assistant
position and eventually become a col-
lege professor. As a part-time student,
it will take me almost two years to
complete. Dustin is up for a new set
of orders, and thereby another move,
in August 2011. He can't retire until
2016. So what do I do with those five
years in between?
Dustin thinks the answer is simple.
Get my degree, follow him around for
five more years, and then settle down
to pursue my dream as a college profes-
sor. But I've already put my dreams on
hold for 10 years. Haven't I already sac-
rificed enough? I don't want to get my
masters and then sit on it for five years.
1.1,Iyl- you should just get out of
the military and let me pursue my
education now," I suggested.
But being in the military is what
Dustin has always wanted to do. He
can't imagine anything else. Being in
the military is his dream. Sacrificing
his dream, when he's so close to mili-
tary retirement is unthinkable.
We're at a crossroads. Our individu-
al dreams can't be pursued simultane-
ously unless we divide our family and
live in separate locations for the next
few years a fate that seems worse
than both of our abandoned aspira-
So, who compromises? How do we
meet in the middle? Who finally lets
go of the tug-of-war rope and comes to
the other side?
These are questions that military
marriages face on a regular basis.
It's part of what makes our lifestyle
unimaginable to many. Yet plenty of
marriages find a way to make it work,
either by living separately temporar-
ily or by one person making a huge
sacrifice for the other.
Dustin knows what he needs to do
- finish his commitment and get his
retirement. I haven't decided which
path to take follow him or stay and
get my degree. As we wade through
this rocky sea, I am grateful for provi-
sions like USFSPA that recognize the
full spectrum of commitment and sac-
rifice involved in military marriage.
Hey, MoneyChic! I had an interest-only mortgage and
my time has expired for the interest-only portion. Now the
principal is tacked on to my payments there is no way I
can continue to afford my mortgage.
I've lost any property appreciation and the loan is more
than the actual value of the home at the present time. I'm
seriously considering a short sale to get out of this situa-
tion. I know it will affect my credit, but it's better than a
foreclosure. Any tips?
MoneyChic says: Before you jump straight to a short
sale, attempt a loan modi-
fication with your lender. /
Perhaps they can refinance
you at a lower interest rate
or provide a different pay-
If you know neither
of those are going to be
enough, then your first step
would be to call your lender
to see if they are willing to entertain the idea of a short
sale. Next, look for a real estate attorney who specializes
in short sales.You want to find someone who has a history
of closing these types of sales. Begin interviewing Realtors
who can help you put together a short sale package if you
find a buyer. Then, gather your income tax returns for the
past two years and draft a hardship letter explaining why
you need the short sale. Once you find a buyer (fingers
crossed), let them know there may be a lengthy waiting
period because a lender's review of a short sale package
may take weeks to even months.
Keep in mind, the lender has many options in respond-
ing: approving, counter offering or denying. A short sale
might be the solution you are looking for just bear in
mind that it's not a speedy process which reminds me
of a favorite quotation, "Patience is a virtue with a lot of

Group commended the "Red
Lancers" of VP-10 on their
mission readiness during

sized the importance of the
product that VP squadrons
provide to the rest of the

challenges of operating in

He congratulated the Red
Lancers on their superior
performance during the
first part of their deploy-

lance as they approach the

"The ISR application is
huge. As long as we have
boots on the ground we will
be flying overhead," said
Moran. "VP-10 is having a
huge effect on our ability to
protect forces on the ground
and to locate the enemy.
You're doing it effectively
and with style."
"My hat is off to you,"
Moran told the Sailors,
touching on the many envi-
ronmental challenges of
operating in a desert envi-
ronment. "Just getting
engines started is a chal-
lenge out here."
"I also understand the
ASW has been difficult out
here," Moran continued,

job being ready for the

transition for IA spouses
From Fleet and Family Support Center
Several dozen spouses attended a pre-
sentation by Dr. Tracy Hejmanowski
July 23 at NAS Jacksonville Fleet
and Family Services Center (FFSC) about
the inherent strain of post-deployment
transition for families of those who have
served as individual augmentees (IAs) in
support of Operation Enduring Freedom/
Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Hejmanowski is a clinical psychologist
and program manager of the Deployment
Health Center located at the NAS
Jacksonville Branch Health Clinic.
Introduced by NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
and Command Master Chief CMDCM(SW/
AW) Jeff Hudson, the focus of the discus-
sion centered on the psychological and
social impact and recalibration, which
takes place for IAs and their spouses after
return from a war zone.
In addition to IA spouses, several com-
mand ombudsmen were present to gain
additional information about the home-
coming process for the growing population
of IA service members and their families.
IAs are often at higher risk for read-
justment difficulty, as they frequently
deploy individually, may work within other
branches of the military at new commands,
may work outside their rate or specialty,
and typically lack unit cohesion and sup-
port upon return. IAs may also serve in
high-risk occupations, which increases the
likelihood of exposure to perilous or unusu-
ally impactful situations.
When an IA returns home, he or she
must shift from a defensive posture to a
cooperative position one that does not
always happen smoothly. Depending
on their mission, IAs may operate in an
environment in which hyper-awareness,
aggressiveness, suspicion and all-or-noth-
ing (life-or-death) decision making is essen-
tial to their and others' safety. When they
return stateside, they still rely on mus-
cle memory and trained responses, which
doesn't always translate well in social,
work or family scenarios.
Successful readjustment after deploy-
ment requires two main ingredients: first,
the service member's conscious "retrain-
ing" of his or her brain and body to func-
tion outside the war zone, and second, the
resetting of expectations for both the IA
and the spouse as to how they will find
a "new normal" for their family. For the

NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr. welcomed IA spouses and
command ombudsmen to learn more about
the IA homecoming process July 23 at NAS
Jacksonville Fleet and Family Services Center.
Dr. Tracy Hejmanowski, program manager
of the Deployment Health Center located at
the NAS Jacksonville Branch Health Clinic,
provided valuable insight to post-deployment
IA, this can lead to physical and mental
overload. And for the spouse who is often
left-in-the-dark about the events and expe-
riences of their IA's war-zone deployment
- understanding the transition home can
be confusing and stressful.
The attending IA spouses and ombuds-
men asked questions about tendencies
they noticed in their spouses, such as over
protectiveness, isolation, impatience and
insomnia. They queried how to point out
changes in their spouse's behavior, partic-
ularly when their spouse did not recognize
or want to talk about it. Hejmanowski dis-
cussed ways to start conversations about
these topics, even if they were ultimate-
ly not the person with whom the service
member could directly work through the
By the end of the session, the IA spouses
and ombudsmen had gained a sense that
although post-deployment readjustment
is natural and common, some behaviors
and reactions can have considerable ripple
effects within the family. They were pro-
vided with numerous local, national and
online resources for post-deployed service
members and their families.

in the desert which was
believed to be the crash site
of Speicher's jet.
The Iraqi, a Bedouin, was
11 years old at the time of
the crash and did not have
direct knowledge of where
Speicher was buried but
knew of other Bedouins
He willingly provided his
information during gen-
eral discussion with MNF-
W personnel and stated he
was unaware of the U.S.
government's interest in
this case until queried by
U.S. investigators in July.
The Iraqi citizens led
MNF-W's personnel recov-

remains were recovered was
located approximately 100
kilometers west of Ramadi,
in Anbar province.
There were two sites that

Fleet Readiness Center Southeast (FRCSE) contin-
ues to define the leading edge of improvements in
aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul with the
recent merging of six work centers.
In December 2006, Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance
Departments (AIMD) and Naval Aviation Depots were
combined into one organization designated as FRCSE
- to merge depot-level artisans and intermediate-level
Sailors into one all-star force for aviation maintenance.
As a result of the integration, Sailors and civilians now
work side-by-side to provide comprehensive aviation main-
tenance and repair capabilities that support Warfighter
FRCSE continues to improve as a result of the integra-
tion and leads the way in optimizing the methods in which
repairs are performed to increase both maintenance
capacity and capabilities.
The most recent merger of avionics, hydraulics, pro-
duction control and supply enables Sailors and artisans
to improve their collaboration to redefine naval aviation
maintenance for the benefit of the Warfighter.
"Combining these shops couldn't happen overnight," said
Electronic Mechanic Work Leader Sara Branch. "As you
can imagine, we faced a few obstacles. There were several
factors to resolve before implementation including policy
changes, cultural and organizational differences, and bud-
Many of the business efficiencies realized at FRCSE
can be attributed to the continuous process improvement
methodology known as AIRSpeed.
Restructuring workflow and merging work centers
under AIRSpeed, allowed FRCSE to combine assets that
perform the same functions into one area, making way
for more effective use of time and manpower. The overall
objective is to reduce maintenance time and cut excessive
costs. This has proven very beneficial for the command
as it allows an accurate deadline for finishing scheduled
work based on customer demand.
"We are halfway moved in and ready," said Lt. Cmdr.
Win Peregrino, Hangar 1000 AIRSpeed division officer.
"The hydraulics shop is in its new space, and with the
exception of a few electrical issues, has been situated
According to Peregrino, the avionics shops are relo-
cating between Hangar 1000 and Building 101U. "Our
charter mandates that we complete all moves by October,
and I am pleased that we are ahead of schedule," said
The merger not only provides better balance in man-
power, but customer satisfaction, too. Thanks to the dedi-
cated workforce at FRCSE, the future of naval aviation
is bright as they continue to deliver combat-ready assets
that reduce costs.

Director Andrew Sullivan. He
proudly notes that the NAS
Jacksonville Fuel Division
was selected as runner-up for
the 2008 American Petroleum
Institute "Excellence in Fuels
Management" award for Navy
retail fuel activities.
Facility Operations Specialist
Alan Williams explains that
his most critical responsibil-
ity is the daily Quality Assurance
Surveillance Program. His team
includes inspectors ensure com-
pliance with quality, safety and
environmental standards (both
state and federal) that govern
contractor facility maintenance,
facility operations, vehicle main-
tenance and flight line operations
- in addition to operations and
maintenance of the base cryogenic
There are daily inspections of
the station's three floating-pan
storage tanks that hold up to
630,000 gallons each. Pumps,
valves and overflow alarms are
also inspected daily.
Fuel is received daily from pri-
vate carriers utilizing 8,000-gal-
lon tank trucks contracted by
the Fleet and Industrial Supply
Center FISC) Jacksonville Fuel
Division. When trucks drop their
fuel, it's pumped through a fil-
ter system that traps sediment
and other impurities as small as
five microns. The naked eye can
only see particles larger than 30
"The quality of our fuel is criti-
cal to mission success. If a P-3
or a Seahawk goes down because
of tainted fuel, we lose a multi-
million-dollar aircraft. But we
may also lose a highly trained
and experienced crew and that's
even more costly," said Sullivan.
Doss Aviation Project Manager
Mike Darling said, The NAS
Jacksonville 'fuel farm' is a gov-
ernment-owned facility run by
a contractor, in this case, Doss
Aviation. We work with Alan and
Andrew to make sure services are
provided according to contract.
We maintain security and safety
standards set by the Navy."
Darling concluded, "Our man-
date is to provide fuel that is clean
and dry, respond to fuel requests
in 15 minutes or less, deliver fuel
in a courteous, prompt and safe
manner, and manage accounts
to make ensure the right bills
go to the right squadrons. We're
a close-knit family with unique
skills and knowledge."
Williams added, "Our highly
trained, motivated and safety con-
scious team is famous for custom-
er service. In 2008, we performed
14,102 fueling evolutions with an
average response time to aircraft
of just 13 minutes. To assure that
we deliver 'clean, dry and bright'
fuel to our aviation customers, we
tested more than 10,660 samples
of JP-5 fuel last year."

conserves protected species
By Ch ristine Bauern
The Florida Fish and
decided in June 2006 to
list the gopher tortoise
(gopherus polyphemus) as
a candidate for "threat-
ened species" designation.
The FWC staff developed
a species management
plan based on the final
Biological Status Report.
The rate of population
decline, leading to the
current imperilment of
the species, was primar-
ily due to habitat loss. The
plan aims to restore viable
populations of gopher tor-
toises throughout Florida
- including Department of
Defense sites such as NAS
Gopher tortoises feed
mainly on broadleaf grass-
es, wiregrass, legumes, and
fruits, but are known to
eat many species of plants.
Population density is depen-
dent on the availability of
herbaceous ground cover.
Tortoises typically inhabit
well-drained sandy soils,
which are usually associ-
ated with scrub, sandhill,
and longleaf pine growth.
pine forests covered many
upland sandy areas across
the South but most areas
were converted to faster
growing slash pines for
the paper industry. More
recently longleaf pines were
found to have numerous
wildlife benefits, making
the restoration of long leaf
pine forest stands a desir-
able re-forestation strategy.
In a 2004 forestry proj-
ect, NAS Jacksonville
and FWC converted 57
acres of slash pine forest
at Outlying Field (OLF)
Whitehouse to longleaf
pines. The slash pines were
harvested by clear cutting,
and then the site was plant-
ed with containerized long-
leaf pine seedlings. After
several years of growth, it
was observed that compe-
tition from natural slash
pines and hardwood sprouts
were adversely affecting
longleaf pine growth on
approximately 10 acres. In
some spots, the competing
vegetation completely over-
topped the longleaf pines
- reducing the growth of
forage plants needed by
The project will reduce
competing vegetation to
improve longleaf pine
growth and provide better
habitat for gopher tortoises.
In-house forestry person-
nel and equipment were
utilized for this project.

Part 2 of this series focused on the
Navy's A.C.T. (Ask-Care-Treat)
approach. Part 3 of this series intro-
duces the many roles that we each play
in the prevention of suicide. Some of the
material in this article has been prepared
for National Suicide Prevention Week and
the Department of Defense Task Force on
It was William Shakespeare who penned
the phrase "Life is a stage and men and
women are merely players..." the truth of
this statement is that we interact with a
great multitude of others each and every
day. Whether it is in our work centers, our
homes, our neighborhoods and communi-
ties, we are given an incredible opportunity
not only to participate in the great drama
of "life" but to influence the outcomes for
others. While some may tend to empha-
size what each individual does for them;
the thoughts of shouldering burdens alone,
or experience "personal trials" can be over-
whelming. The old saying is true, "many
hands make light work." When someone
is heavy burdened with "bad news" or a
family crisis, the people who support you
daily are even more important. Let's look
at a few.
Role of the Supervisors:
Leading petty officers, leading chiefs and
division officers play an especially impor-
tant part in prevention, because they are
on the front line with their shipmates.
Who would be better at noticing changes
in behavior or performance? Nobody. Just
the morning routine of walking the spaces,
saying hello, spending time together doing
group PT or going to chow together, allow
ample time to keep your fingers on the
pulse of your work center and shipmates.
Supervisors also know when upcoming
work-ups, inspections, etc are approach-
ing and stress levels are running higher.
These are special opportunities to connect
with your Sailors.
Sometimes there are warning signs that
need immediate action. Supervisors should
also look for "risky behavior" or perhaps
there is a scuffle or argument that gets out
of hand, it is important to find out what is
behind those incidents. The wake-up call
for a supervisor is the day that something
happens and they say, "I never saw that
coming." Being aware requires leading
petty officers, chiefs and division officers to
get out from behind their desks and deck-
plate with their Sailors. There should not
be a chief or division officer that doesn't
know his people by name and a little bit
about them. Remember, "People don't care
how much you know, until they know how
much you care."
Role of the peers:
Peers are crucial to suicide prevention.
According to one survey, 93 percent of
the respondents reported that they would
turn to a friend before a supervisor, fam-
ily member, or spiritual guide (clergy) in
a time of crisis. A shipmate to shipmate
approach is vital to successful intervention.
Often times, the Sailors in a particular
department or work center already know
who the most approachable individual is in
their setting. Moving departmental train-
ing beyond the mandatory general military
training for suicide prevention and creating
an effective departmental training team
involves lifting up those sailors that have
good communication skills and a higher
level of compassion for others. Twenty-four
years ago, I participated with the Fleet and
Family Support Center in Roosevelt Roads,

Puerto Rico in crisis hotline training. I had
the opportunity to intervene with some
people, both active duty and dependents,
who were suicidal-but in each case there
was also a friend or co-worker who had
helped them to reach out for help. Our
best line of defense in suicide prevention
is the care and compassion of other ship-
F o r
Chaplain (Lt.) Tom Bingol had from
ents. In some circumstances the absence
of "family" is filled with those individuals
that take-on "parental roles." In many
retirements, people speak fondly of their
"sea daddy" who took them under their
wing and taught them about their rate, or
shipboard life. Sometimes within a squad-
ron or a division or work center, there will
be those people who take you under their
wing . that is a part of the proud heri-
tage and tradition of the Navy.
For others, family is specifically related
to perhaps a spouse or children; to the con-
stant balance between the needs of a fam-
ily and the needs of the Navy. For some of
these spouses and children, the military is
a strange creature with a language, tradi-
tion, and protocols for doing things that
seem foreign. There are often plenty of
bruised noses and egos from bumping into
"invisible doors" because a family mem-
ber did not know the proper channels or
procedures for getting something done.
Sometimes emotion and frustration run
high asking, "Why does this have to be
done this way?" or the famous, "I never
had to do it that way before."
Whether your family is the "real" (i.e.
marriage, or birth related) or vicarious (i.e.
the "sea-daddy" or trusted father or mother
figure), the most important aspect related
to suicide prevention is communication.
Good communication skills are necessary
for all families-and families with better
communication skills have less difficulty
with conflict resolution and financial mat-
One of the consequences of poor com-
munication is that people feel alienated,
alone, and often frustrated at not being
able to articulate what they are feeling.
People tend to forget, your families love
you! By improving communication skills
we can help to strengthen families, and
even though there may still be challenges,
they are easier to face when you can talk
about them objectively.
Suicide prevention is an "all hands" evo-
lution. While we may never prevent all
suicide attempts, we can make a substan-
tial impact reducing them by being aware
of the risk factors and warning signs of sui-
cide. If we know what to look for and who

Military spouse career
From Military One Source
The Department of Defense (DoD)
remains strongly committed to
helping military spouses find
employment in high demand, high growth
Portable Career fields. For those who
are interested in pursuing such careers,
DoD is expanding the Military Spouse
Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA)
Editor's Note As of Aug. 7 the follow-
ing message was displayed at the MyCAA
Website (https: / /aiportal.acc.af.mil/
"Due to the popularity of the MyCAA pro-
gram, we are experiencing a temporary
backlog of about four weeks, your requests
will be processed in the order they were
Please plan accordingly when registering
Program description The DoD expand-
ed Military Spouse Career Advancement
Accounts (MyCAA) program provides up
to $6,000 of financial assistance for mil-
itary spouses who are pursuing degree
programs, licenses or credentials leading
to employment in portable career fields.
* Who is eligible Spouses of active duty
members of the DoD and activated mem-
bers of the National Guard and Reserve
components are eligible. The period of eli-
gibility for spouses of Guard and Reserve
members is from the date of the alert or
warning order for military recall or mobili-
zation, through activation and deployment
until 180 days following demobilization.
Spouses of severely injured, ill, wound-
ed or killed in action are also eligible.
Military spouses who are legally sepa-
rated by state law or court order are
ineligible. Spouses who are active duty
members or activated Guard or Reserve
members themselves are ineligible.
Coast Guard is not part of the DoD,
therefore their spouses are not eligible.
* What MyCAA covers It pays for
expenses such as education and training
programs, tuition, licensing and credential-
ing fees. This includes degree programs (ie.
associates, bachelors, masters, doctoral and
post doctoral), continuing education classes
(including those offered through profession-
al associations), bar, CPA and other simi-
lar exams, state certifications for teachers,
medical professionals and other licensed
professionals. MyCAA does not pay for
computers, school application fees, gradu-
ation or membership fees, student activity
cards, childcare, parking, transportation
or medical services. If the cost of a course
includes books, supplies or other neces-
sary equipment, MyCAA will cover that
cost. Payments are made directly to schools
using MyCAA's electronic payment system.
Referrals are made to federally funded
English As A Second Language classes
and GED classes and testing programs.
* How MyCAA financial assistance
works A military spouse can apply for
MyCAA financial assistance after complet-
ing a MyCAA career and training plan.
- A career and training plan includes
the spouse's chosen career field, name
of school and course information (course
titles, codes, costs and start/end dates.)
If incorrect information is provided, the
MyCAA financial assistance request
will be rejected during the school invoic-
ing process. The spouse will then be
responsible for paying course costs.
- Financial assistance requests are ini-
tiated each time the spouse adds specif-
ic course start/end dates when it is time
to enroll in one or more courses included
in the spouse's career and training plan.
* How to get started Eligible spouses can
establish a MyCAA account by visiting the
MyCAA Web site at https://aiportal.acc.
af.mil/mycaa. Setting up an account is an
easy, self-help process. Once spouse profile
information is provided, MyCAA will verify
spouse eligibility. Spouses should check
their eligibility and account status regu-
larly as well as their MyCAA account mes-
sage boards for alerts from their account
managers and guidance on next steps.
Registration tutorials are online on the
NOTE: It is critical that spouses select
the correct school name/campus location
and input correct course information into
their career and training plan to prevent
billing problems. This information should
be validated by school officials prior to
the spouse applying for MyCAA financial
Career and training plans may be edited
(courses may be changed or dropped) up to
10 days prior to the start date of a course.
At that point, the plan will be approved up
until seven days past course start dates.
Data in the career and training plan is
used to validate school bills for payment
purposes. Approved courses may be billed
by the school at or below stated costs.
Schools may charge penalty fees, partial
or full course costs for dropped courses
according to their published drop/add poli-
cies. Spouses need to be familiar with these

ate due to a natural disaster.
All military personnel must be enrolled

ment after an evacuation until enrollment
is completed and DTS orders are written.

separate evacuation orders by their spon-
sor's command using a different system
DTS travel advances and claims will be
processed online, and all non-DTS advanc-
es and travel claims will be filed with the

er. The main advantages of DTS are quick
advances for those who are ineligible for a

TAX AIR NEWS. NAS IACKSONVILLE. Thursday. Auuist 13. 2009 15
By LTJG Patrick Jackson, JAGC, USN
There is an old clich6 that "when the going gets
tough, the tough get going." Well times certainly
are tough, and it almost goes without saying that
there is no one tougher than then the members of the
United States military.
However, many of our fellow service members are unable
to "get going" with their lives due to the poor economy and
the collapse of the housing bubble. Imagine the plight of
John Q. Sailor who bought a new home several years ago
while home values were still high. Now his orders are up
and it's time to PCS somewhere new, but he is stuck in his
current home. Facing the very real possibility of having to
sell his home at a significant loss, he is left to choose the
less horrible of two lousy options: start making two mort-
gages, or a mortgage and a rent payment, each month; or
sell his home and lose thousands of dollars in the process.
What is he to do?
Fortunately for John Q. Sailor, the federal government
is deeply committed to protecting service members and
assisting them during this economic crisis. President
Obama recently signed the "American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009," which includes key provisions
that could have a dramatic effect on service members deal-
ing with the decline in the housing market. In particular,
Section 1001 of the Act updates and expands upon the
Department of Defense Homeowners Assistance Program
HAP was originally designed to help service members
whose home values were negatively affected by the closure
of nearby military installations. After making a reason-
able effort to sell their home, individuals thus affected
could be reimbursed by the government for part of the
lost value of their home. First, an eligible person could
be compensated for the difference between ninety-five
(95) percent of the old value of the home, and the current
sale or appraisal value. Second, an eligible person could
instead choose to sell the property directly to the govern-
ment for up to seventy-five (75) percent of the old fair
market value of their home, or the current total amount of
existing mortgages, whichever is greater.
"HAP-Plus," as the expanded program has come to be
called, broadens eligibility for relief. Guidelines for imple-
mentation are still under review, but at least four basic
requirements will have to be met before relief under the
new law is possible. They are:
i. The property involved is the current principal resi-
dence of the service member;
ii. The property was purchased by the service member
prior to July 1, 2006;
iii. The service member was "permanently reassigned"
on orders "to a duty station or home port outside a 50-mile
radius" of the prior base or installation; and
iv. The qualifying property was sold by the owner
between July 1, 2006 and September 30, 2012 (or poten-
tially some earlier date);
Although the DoD is still in the process of finalizing
policy and regulations for HAP-Plus, military members
who believe they may be eligible can start the application
process. Applications and additional information for the
Homeowners Assistance Program can be found online at
http://hap.usace.army.mil/homepage.html. If you intend
to apply, please be patient while the program becomes
operational, and your application is processed.
If you have any other questions your local legal assis-
tance offices can be reached as follows: Jacksonville,

New active duty dental plan
T he new Active Duty
(ADDP) becomes the
dental care plan Aug. 1 for
active duty service members
(ADSM) assigned to locations
with no access to a military
dental facility. ADDP is also
for service members referred
by their dental treatment
facility (DTF) to the civilian
network for specialty care or
due to unavailability of timely
TRICARE Prime Remote
enrollees ADSM with duty
stations and residences more
than 50 miles from a military
dental facility -are eligible for
ADDP. Reserve and National
Guard members activated for
more than 30 consecutive days
on federal orders and who live
more than 50 miles from a mil-
itary dental facility are also eligible
for ADDP on their activation date.
ADSM who live in remote locations,
but work within 50 miles of a dental
treatment facility will continue to be
seen at a DTF.
Of the more than 81,000 den-
tal claims filed each year by ADSM,
approximately 31 percent come from
service members living and working
in remote locations. In the past, the
Military Medical Support Office of the
TRICARE Management Activity han-
dled remote dental claims and refer-
rals from DTFs. United Concordia,
Inc., will now handle these claims

TRICARE obtains lower prices on retail prescription drugs
From TRICARE Management Activity
The Department of Defense (DoD) is projected to
reduce spending by $1.67 billion on prescription
medications sold in retail pharmacies in fiscal year
2010, following the full implementation of Section 703 of
the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fis-
cal year 2008.
"These are significant savings to the Department of
Defense and they are crucial to our effort to slow the
rapid growth of pharmacy costs," said Rear Adm. Thomas
McGinnis, chief of TRICARE pharmaceutical operations,
in an Aug. 4 news release.
For the past several years the DoD has paid commercial
rates for prescription drugs purchased in the TRICARE
retail pharmacy network. However, DoD is included in
the 1992 Veterans Healthcare Act as one of the "big four"
government agencies entitled to federal prices when it
purchases pharmaceuticals for its beneficiaries.
DoD currently receives federal ceiling prices, the maxi-
mum price that can be charged for brand name drugs,
in military treatment facilities and the TRICARE Mail
Order Pharmacy. Through authority provided in Section
703 of the 2008 NDAA and the "final rule" implementing
the regulation, DoD will now get these same discounts
in the TRICARE retail pharmacy network. The final rule
was effective May 26.
Controlling the growth in pharmacy benefit costs for
both the beneficiaries and the government is an ongoing

From Naval Hospital lax Public Affairs
Have you been looking for a way to support our
Sailors and their families? Doing something
that really makes a difference? Well, here's
The American Red Cross is in urgent need of more
volunteers. Whether assisting patients and guests in
the Red Cross administrative offices, the clinic front
desks, driving the shuttle cart in the parking lot or
delivering magazines and cook-
ies to patients on the wards, Red
Cross volunteers are highly valued
members of the Naval Hospital
Jacksonville family of caregivers.
The American Red Cross vol-
unteers also operate two shuttle
carts which run both mornings
and afternoons transporting
patients and visitors to the hospi-
The only requirements for shuttle cart drivers are
that they be outgoing, eager to help and possess a cur-
rent Florida driver's license. An orientation to hospi-
tal rules and procedures is required to be a Red Cross
volunteer as well as a Security background check.
There are numerous other positions in which volun-
teers can serve hospital beneficiaries. These positions
are located in virtually every hospital department.
Volunteers should be able to work at least four hours
per week (single shift) and be friendly and caring.
To become a volunteer, contact the American Red
Cross at 542-7525.

Admiral expects U.S.-China military talks to resume soon
By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service
Plans are under way for the
United States and China to
take the first steps toward
resuming their stalled military-
to-military dialogue, possibly
within the next couple months,
the top U.S. officer in the region
told reporters July 28.
Adm. Timothy Keating, com-
mander, U.S. Pacific Command,
expressed optimism about the
likelihood of a Military Marine
Consultative Agreement session
soon after participating in the
U.S.-China Strategic and Economic
Dialogue in Washington.
Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton, who hosted the
talks, called them "the beginning
of an unprecedented effort to lay
the foundation for a positive, coop-
erative, and comprehensive U.S.-
Chinese relationship for the 21st
Keating noted across-the-
board interest, within both the
U.S. and Chinese delegations,
in resuming relations between
the two countries' militaries
as part of that broader effort.
The "unmistakable theme" of yes-
terday's talks was that both "want
to continue to build upon the foun-
dation of trust and mutual respect
our two countries have, as mani-
fest by military-to-military rela-
tions," said Keating.
Both President Barack Obama
and Chinese President Hu Jintao
have made it clear they want the
relations to resume, Keating said,
so now it's only a matter of getting
arrangements in place.
"We have agreed to do it," he
told reporters. "We are just
working on the final details."
Plans are under way for the
first meeting, a Military Marine
Consultative Agreement session
Keating said he expects to take
place "in the very near future,"
probably in Beijing.
Pinned down by reporters,
he expressed hope the meeting
occur "within a month or two."
After that session, Keating said,
he looks forward to other opportu-
nities for Chinese military officers
to come to U.S. Pacific Command
headquarters at Camp Smith,
Hawaii, or to the Pentagon, and
for senior U.S. military leaders to
visit their counterparts in Beijing.
Keating said he would like
to see the military relationship
extend to include humanitar-
ian and disaster relief exercises,
personnel exchanges, informa-
tion-sharing on counterterrorism
techniques and procedures and
observation of bilateral and multi-
A Chinese official noted during
the session that "no country can
develop sound policy if it tries to
do so in isolation," Keating told
"I think that's a great way of
expressing the sense all of us feel
- the desire to get back together
again and discuss exercises, dis-
cuss personnel exchanges, discuss
responses to humanitarian assis-
tance crises and the provision of
disaster relief," he said.
Meanwhile, Keating called the
Chinese military's plans to estab-
lish a new Website August 1 a
positive step forward in promot-
ing transparency and a better
understanding of China's military
Mutual understanding of each
other's intentions, along with a
foundation of trust, are "critical
to enhancing peace and stabil-
ity all across Asia and the Pacific
region," said Keating.
New undersea warfare training
range announced for Navy ships,
submarines and aircraft
From Navy Office of Information
The Department of the Navy
announced Aug. 3 that it plans to
install an undersea warfare train-
ing range (USWTR) in the Jacksonville
BJ Penn, assistant secretary of the Navy
for installations and environment, signed
the record of decision, which follows con-
sultation with federal regulators and the
completion of an overseas environmental
impact statement/environmental impact
statement (OEIS/EIS) in June.
While the Navy's OEIS/EIS thoroughly
analyzed both installation and use of the
USWTR for training, the Navy has decided
to implement only a portion of the pro-
posed action, installation of the USWTR.
Because use of the USWTR for training is
not anticipated to occur until at least 2014
due to its construction, the department
will update the analysis contained in the
OEIS/EIS and its consultations with fed-
eral agencies during that period. Decisions
regarding the use of the USWTR will be
conducted closer in time to the date when
training will begin.
Installation consists of the range's plan-
ning, design and construction. When com-
pleted, the USWTR will cover an approxi-
mately 500-square-nautical-mile area
within the waterspace -referred as the
Jacksonville Operating Area, where a vari-
ety of Navy training already occurs. The
USWTR location is well outside the areas
designated as critical habitat for the North
Atlantic right whale.
The USWTR instrumentation will gather
real-time data that will allow the Navy
to analyze and improve their anti-subma-
rine warfare training scenarios, tactics and
procedures. The range's location will pro-
vide ships, submarines and aircraft with
a realistic and challenging littoral train-
ing environment that mirrors the areas in
which the Navy finds itself increasingly
"The Department of the Navy is commit-
ted to protecting the ocean while maintain-
ing readiness in this critical mission area,"
explained Donald Schregardus, deputy
assistant secretary of the Navy for envi-
ronment. T', I.Y-'s decision satisfies both of
these vitally important objectives."
The department's decision conforms
to the process outlined in the National
Environmental Protection Act and
Executive Order 12114, which requires
analysis of the environmental consequenc-
es of federal actions such as the USWTR
construction. Throughout the USWTR
environmental impact analysis, Navy plan-
ners and scientists worked closely with fed-
eral regulators from the National Marine
Navy's Operation Prepare
Campaign encourages Sailors/
families to be disaster ready
Everyone is concerned
about the economy.
Most of us have
seen our assets shrink and
are trying to be thrifty.
and man-made disasters
don't wait for good times.
Keeping yourself and your
family ready for emergen-
cies is as important as
ever. If you haven't done
it yet, here are some steps
you can take to protect
your most precious assets,
your loved ones.
The good news is that it
doesn't take a lot of time
OR money. Since 2007, the
Navy's Operation Prepare
campaign has been encour-
aging personnel and their
families to take three sim-
ple steps to disaster pre-
paredness: Be informed.
Have a plan. Make a kit.
The free part
Getting and staying
informed takes only a little
time. You can probably do
it all online at your con-
venience. First, identify
the hazards most likely to
affect you and your fam-
ily. Is your area subject to
extreme weather events
like hurricanes, torna-
does, or winter storms? Is
it flood-prone? Are hazard-
ous materials stored near-
by? Is a new strain of flu
virus making news? Your
Management Program and
other local sources can help
identify area hazards, as
well as warning systems if
there is an emergency and
the recommended actions.
It is also essential-and
free-to make plans as a
family for reacting to vari-
ous emergencies. Discuss
where your children will
go if they are in school at
the time of the emergency,
and make sure they under-
stand where you intend
to be. Take into account
any members of your fam-
ily with special needs and
what you will do with pets.
An important part of
this plan is having a sys-
tem to get and stay in touch
if you're separated. Make
a wallet card with all the
phone numbers and infor-
mation every family mem-
ber may need, including an
and number of local and
out-of-state contacts. Make
sure everyone has a copy,
and file a copy with the
command ombudsman and
Finally, make an emer-
gency supply kit to keep at
home, and be sure every
family member knows
where it is. You can keep
your kit in one or two por-
table containers and have
them ready to go if you sud-
denly have to take shelter
or evacuate. Keeping small-
er, specialized kits at work
and in your car is also a
In building your emer-
gency kits, consider area
hazards and the special
needs of family members
and pets. In addition to
basics like a first aid kit,
personal sanitation sup-
plies, dust masks, a bat-
tery-power or hand-crank
radio, flashlight, extra bat-
teries, maps, and your fam-
ily communications plan,
include enough nonperish-
able food and at least one
gallon of water per person
per day for at least three
Preassembled kits are
available at discount stores
for around $100, but you
can probably make one for
considerably less. More
than likely, you already
have many of the items
around the house. Also, you
don't have to get everything
at once-just add items
each week until you have
enough. Rethink your fam-
ily needs every year, and
refresh food and water sup-
plies periodically. Who can't
afford added family security
at that cost?
Operation Prepare: It's
Your family emergency
plan and emergency pre-
paredness kit are the cor-
nerstones of Operation
Prepare. For more infor-
mation, visit the Operation
Prepare information post-
ed on CNIC's website at
mil. Remember: It's your
duty to be prepared-Be
informed. Have a plan.
Make a kit.
