Southeast (FRCSE) won
the prestigious Chief of
Naval Operations 2008 Naval
Aviation Safety Award for its out-
standing aircraft maintenance
and operations safety record.
The award recognized the cen-
ter's "superior leadership, superla-
tive airmanship and a proactive,
all-hands commitment to the prin-
ciples of operational risk manage-
ment."
In 2008, FRCSE achieved 42
years and 29,025 flight hours of
Class A/B mishap-free flying.
This is an extraordinary suc-
cess given the command's unique
maintenance mission.

leadership meeting on Sept. 14.
He said, "This was accomplished
with the support of all personnel
and I have absolute faith and con-
fidence in what they do."
Sohl also recognized the


individual efforts of Aviation
Safety Officers (ASO) Lt. Brian
Williams, Lt. Cmdr. Brian Cowell

Safety and Health Director
Robert Aceves.
As one of the command's P-3
Orion test pilots and ASO since
2006, Williams appreciates the
skilled artisans who perform the
extensive rework projects, some-
times taking aircraft complete-

together. FRCSE is one of a hand-

POWs/MIAs remembered



in ceremony at NAS Jax


By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO


NAS Jacksonville
held its annual
POW/MIA Recog-
nition Observance Sept.
17 at All Saints Chapel to
pay tribute to former POWs
and to recognize families
of those who are still unac-
counted for.
The ceremony began with
the singing of the national
anthem by a vocal quartet
from Navy Band Southeast
followed by the invocation
from Command Chaplain
(Cmdr.) Gerald Felder
and the POW Pledge of
Allegiance by John Rosa, a
retired Navy master chief
and World War II (WWII)
POW.
NAS Jacksonville Com-
manding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr. thanked
the POWs for their service.
"I am truly honored to be
here today as it is a great
privilege and a humbling
experience to be part of this
ceremony honoring some of
America's finest heroes,"
said Scorby. "To all of the


U.S. Navy World War II veteran and Board Member of
Mayport Council Navy League, James Gaff, was the guest
speaker at the annual POW/MIA Observance Sept. 17 at the
All Saints Chapel.


former WWII, Korean and
Vietnam POWs and their
families you have our
heartfelt gratitude for your
sacrifices. To all the fami-
lies of those who are still
listed as missing in action -
our support remains stead-
fast you are never forgot-
ten."


Scorby also mentioned
Capt. Scott Speicher, whose
remains were recently
returned home. "Ladies
and gentlemen, just over a
month ago, the remains of
Jacksonville native Capt.
Scott Speicher, who was
missing for nearly 18 years,
were found and returned


home to a hero's welcome.
That gives us all hope that
someday a resolution will
be found for all those who
are unaccounted for or
missing in action," he con-
tinued.
Scorby also recognized
Mary Hoff, an MIA wife
and member of the National
League of American
Prisoners and Missing in
Southeast Asia, who cre-
ated the POW/MIA flag
which was officially recog-
nized by the 101P Congress
on Aug. 10, 1990.
Scorby then introduced
Michelle Barth, who read
a statement from Sen.
Bill Nelson, D-Fla.; Adele
Griffin, who read a state-
ment by Sen. George
Lemieux, R-Fla.; Jackie
Smith, who read a state-
ment by Congressman
Ander Crenshaw, R-Fla. and
Director of Military Affairs
for the City of Jacksonville
Bob Buehn who represented
Jacksonville Mayor John
Peyton.

'Pro's Nest'


simulator team


welcomes FFSC


professionals

By Clark Pierce
Editor

Fifteen professional counselors and educators
from Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC)
spent the morning of Sept. 17 learning basic
flight operations (take-off and landing) in a P-3C
Orion simulator that is part of the VP-30 pilot and
flight engineer training syllabus at NAS Jacksonville.
"The team of experts at Fleet and Family Support
Center is a valued resource for our Sailors and fami-
lies at VP-30 so we wanted to thank them with
a hands-on, inside look at how we develop team-
work on the flight deck of a P-3C Orion," said VP-30
Commanding Officer Capt. Perry Yaw.
"As the Navy's maritime patrol fleet replacement
squadron, the 'Pro's Nest' has trained thousands of
naval aviation warriors many of whom are now for-
ward deployed around the globe. FFSC plays a key
role in assisting Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 11
squadrons with the deployment process. Their work-
shops, support groups and referral services help meet
our needs at home, so our Sailors can better execute
their duties on deployment," stated Yaw.
Lt. Kenny Keepes, a P-3C instructor pilot assigned
to the P-8 Fleet Integration Team at VP-30, wel-
comed the FFSC group to simulator number four and

Looking back to 1988...


U.S. Navy photo
An SH-3H Sea King helicopter assigned to HS-5 prepares to reel out its AQS-13B dipping sonar into the blue Atlantic
waters near USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69). HS-5 was commissioned at NAS Key West in January 1956. The
"Nightdippers" changed their home port to NAS Jacksonville in 1995 when they transitioned from the Sea King to the
SH-60 Seahawk. HS-5 is scheduled to move to NS Norfolk, Va., in 2010 where it will transition to the SH-60 Sierra and
change its squadron designation to HSC-5.

HEY, MONEYCHIC!

Hey, MoneyChic! I was supposed to have new orders to
my next command by now. The detailers are saying they won't
be cut until after October when it's a new fiscal year. We were
planning on doing a DITY move and found the perfect house
to rent online at our next duty station.
I'm thinking of just financing my own DITY move and then
have them reimburse me. I don't want to lose this house. Do
you think this is a risky move or a smart move to think ahead
and make moves for what I see coming in my future and our
next duty station?
MoneyChic says: Slow down, sailor. When it comes to
using your own money for PCS moves, signing leases and
putting down deposits before having hard copies of orders is
EXTREMELY risky. My recommendations are NOT to do
this. Yes, I understand you found the perfect home to rent,
but there are always others out there, trust me. 2009 was a big
change with fiscal spending in the Navy. Moves must be paid
for out of current funds in the budget.
Yes, October 1st will bring many hard copies of orders for
folks, but out of the 5,000 up for scheduled PCS moves, the
Navy has already projected that 2000 sailors that are set to
transfer in October won't receive a hard copy of their orders.
Rear Admiral Mike Shoemaker, the Navy's head detailer, has
already issued a statement that they will not be issuing any
types of "letter of intent" for orders. He recommends that sail-
ors should "not obligate themselves financially for anything
before they have orders in hand."
This means that if you are considering paying for anything
out of pocket, do not expect to be reimbursed later. From a
financial standpoint, it's in your best interest to try to be
patient and wait until you have hard orders before making any
commitments. I understand you are trying to prevent a last
minute scramble to find housing and set up a move, but in this
instance it's best to wait for solid orders. That's my two cents...

people talk about the resiliency of

As I finish this column, I have just
come home from picking up the boys
at school. On our walk, the boys talk-
ed over each other to be the first to
tell me about the friends they saw.
For a moment, I wondered if maybe
I had made too much of our move the
year before and its impact on them.
Maybe it hadn't affected them at all.
They seemed just as well adjusted
then as they do now.
Then Ford said, "There is a new boy
in my class. He just moved here."
"Did you make friends with him?" I
asked.
"Not yet," Ford said. "I'm watching
him though. I'll give him some time
to get settled in. He's probably kind of
overwhelmed. When the time is right,
I'll ask him to be my friend."
I smiled to myself. Apparently our
move did make a big impact on the
boys after all. But if that impact leads
to more compassion and patience for
other people in new and difficult situ-
ations, well, then maybe all the stress
was worth it.

New


Pass


and ID


Office


hours

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO
beginning Oct. 1, the
NAS Jax Pass and
ID Office hours will
be greatly reduced from
the current 24 hours a day,
seven days a week sched-
ule. The new hours will be
7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. There
will be no change to the
main gate operating hours.
"I fully recognize the
impact this change will have
on base operations, particu-
larly with regards to after-
hours commercial deliver-
ies and visitors. That said,
we need to do our best to
make this change work. All
tenant command inputs on
how to mitigate the change
are welcome," said NAS Jax
Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr.

tration and proof of insurance in order to get new decals for
his car at the Pass and ID Office at the NAS Jax Main Gate.


The hours are being
reduced following a
Commander, Navy Instal-
lations Command study
that was conducted on Pass
and ID hours of operation.
The study included on-site
reviews and rigorous statis-
tical analysis of all instal-
lations' Pass and ID offices.
The findings recommend-
ed all Pass and ID operat-
ing hours be reduced to 56
hours per week beginning
Oct. 1.
"The best advice I can
offer is to plan ahead. We
are trying to identify and
plan for every contingen-
cy, but we know there are


going to be those who we
will miss. Coordination
with our Pass and ID
Office will be key in gain-
ing access for after-hours
guests," stated NAS Jax
Security Director Glenn
Williams. "Our goal is not
to deny those who belong
aboard the installation, but
those who do not. The chal-
lenge is being able to tell
the difference."
This change will affect
base access after hours.

Military Access Control
System, contact Sally Day
at 542-1470 or email sally.

CNO approves



uniform changes


From Chief of Naval
Personnel Public Affairs

The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO)
approved several uniform poli-
cy changes proposed by the Navy
Uniform Board in NAVADMIN 271-09.
The changes include authorizing Sailors
to wear the aviation flight deck boots (non-
spark safety boots) with the Navy Working
Uniform (NWU) while outside the flight
deck or flight line working environment.
Sailors must conform to official NWU
manner of wear and the boots must pres-
ent a well-maintained and professional
appearance when worn with the NWU.
Sailors issued aviation flight deck boots
are still required to purchase and maintain
the black nine-inch NWU boot.
"The Uniform Board considers many sug-
gestions and changes to uniforms and wear
regulation," said Capt. Vince Drouillard,
branch head within the Navy's personnel,
plans and policy division. "These approved
changes are the result of fleet feedback
and research to ensure uniforms meet mis-
sion requirements and uphold Navy tradi-
tions."
Beginning Nov. 1, women are authorized
cosmetic permanent makeup for eyebrows,
eyeliner, lipstick and lip liner. The per-
manent makeup must be in good taste
and blend naturally with the skin tone.
Lipstick colors will be conservative and
complement the Sailor. Still prohibited are
exaggerated or faddish cosmetic styles.
The NAVADMIN states permanent
makeup is an elective medical procedure
accomplished by qualified medical profes-
sionals to enhance Sailors' natural fea-
tures. Sailors should carefully consider the
risks and liabilities involved with the pro-
cedures and ensure they plan and research
their options thoroughly.
"Sailors should be very familiar with the
extent of the procedure, the possibilities
of side affects, the potential need for time
off for recovery and having a reputable
organization and facility conduct any pro-
cedures," said Drouillard.
Guidelines for requesting the proce-
dures and administrative guidance for
Sailors will be published in an upcoming


NAVADMIN before the Nov. 1 implemen-
tation date.
In another change, Sailors assigned to
the staff of United States Africa Command
(U.S. AFRICOM) are now authorized to
wear the optional AFRICOM staff identi-
fication badge during their assignment to
the command. The badge may be worn on
all uniforms, with the exception of working
uniforms.
Women will wear the badge centered
one-quarter inch above the left pocket or
one-quarter inch above authorized ribbons,
medals and breast insignia. Men will wear
the badge centered on the left breast pock-
et. Beginning immediately, the badge will
be available for purchase through Navy
Exchange Uniform Support Center by call-
ing 800-368-4088 or 757-502-7450.
The NAVADMIN re-designates the
Naval Air Crewman Qualification insignia
as the Naval Aircrew Warfare Specialist
(NAC) insignia. The insignia descrip-
tion and composition remains the same
and will be worn in the primary or sec-
ondary position as described in Uniform
Regulations. Sailors will use NAC follow-
ing their rate as their warfare designation
(e.g. AW1 (NAC) Williams).
Qualified Sailors can now wear a maxi-
mum of two warfare and qualification
devices within a single category such
as Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist
(EAWS), and NAC Warfare Specialist.
Warfare insignia will continue to take pre-
cedence over qualification insignia as pre-
scribed in uniform regulations.
Sailors should review all uniform chang-

Ships from the USS
Harry S. Truman
Carrier Strike Group
(HST CSG), along with 13
foreign ships from nine
nations, is conducting
Joint Task Force Exercise
(JTFEX) 09-4.
It is a scenario-driven
tactical exercise that focus-

tions for the HST CSG,
which will provide neces-
sary training for the strike
group to proceed into a
Fleet Synthetic Training -
Joint (FST-J) exercise for
final deployment certifica-

JTFEX provides a
"graduate-level" exercise
to ensure U.S. and coali-

able, capable and ready to
execute the six core capa-
bilities of the Maritime
Strategy forward pres-
ence, deterrence, sea con-
trol, power projection, mari-
time security and humani-
tarian assistance/disaster
response.
"JTFEX 09-4 will present
the strike group with chal-
lenging, dynamic exercise
threats. This scenario, and
the opportunity to work
with our coalition part-
ners will prepare our strike
group for the varied mis-

Providing a rapid and highly expeditionary response
.to the world's changing geo-political landscape
requires a flexible maritime air logistics capabil-
ity available with short notice like that delivered by
Fleet Logistics Support Squadron (VR) 58 based at NAS
Jacksonville.
"It's not unusual for the "Sunseekers" to launch with-
_""..in 24 hours of being tasked. Our rapid-response air-
borne logistics mission is a 24/7 operation," said VR-58
Commanding Officer Cmdr. Ken Johansen. "VR squad-
_-rons are the epitome of the Navy's 'total force' concept
in which full time support (FTS) Sailors and Selective
Reserves (SELRES) work together to help maintain Navy
and Marine Corps combat capability."
Johansen reports to Commander, Fleet Logistics
Support Wing based at NAS Joint Reserve Base (JRB)
Fort Worth, Texas. The wing provides 100 percent of
the Navy's shore-based, fixed-wing airlift capabil-
ity. Operational tasking is scheduled by the Naval Air
-.--- Logistics Office (NALO).

cal component of deployed maritime operations. "We're
a--more than a force in reserve -we're a force in constant
action. In fact, FLSW squadrons represent the Navy's sole
organic maritime airlift capability. With very short notice,
we provide express delivery of high-priority passengers
..' aand cargo to anywhere in the United States or beyond," he
said.
.... VR-58 Operations Officer Lt. Cmdr. Brian Legan is
part of the squadron's FTS roster. A former F-14 and
F/A-18 pilot, Legan is enthusiastic about flying the C-40A
S.Clipper.
"Obviously, it's a great platform that's based on one
of Boeing's most successful commercial airliners, so our
passengers enjoy its quiet operation and comfortable seat-
ing. From a pilot's point of view, the engines are powerful
and efficient, the climb ratio is impressive, and the global
positioning landing system is a great addition to the flight
deck," stated Legan.
Loadmaster AWF1 Jason Brunette, an FTS Sailor and
the squadron's operations assistant LPO, explained that
the C-40A can operate in three configurations: (1) passen-
ger (121 seats); (2) cargo, up to eight pallets, or (3) combi-

"Right now, we operate two passenger and one combina-

POW/MIA:

'After Japan attacked

Pearl Harbor, 15 million

Americans went to war

- and 450,000

never came back'


From Page 1


Capt. Scorby introduced
the guest speaker, U.S.
Navy WWII Veteran Jim
Gaff, who is also a board
member of the Mayport
Council Navy League.
Gaff gave the audience a
short history lesson. "On
Jan. 25, 2009, I celebrat-
ed my 83rd birthday. I tell
you that because they call
my generation, America's
Greatest Generation. I
don't know if we deserve
those accolades, but I do
know we grew up during
a horrible depression. On
Dec. 8, 1941, after Japan
attacked Pearl Harbor, 15
million Americans went to
war and 450,000 never
came back. Millions of us
went to college under the
GI bill and many of us
became white-collar work-
ers. We completely changed
the workforce of America,"
remarked Gaff.
"I'm going to talk about
three strangers who crossed
my path and completely
changed the direction of
my life. In 1929, the stock
market crashed, trigger-
ing the longest and deepest
recession in American his-
tory. Unemployment figures
approached 30 percent. It
really was a tough time in
America," Gaff continued.
"In 1939, Nazi Germany
invaded Poland, which had
an agreement with England
and France that stated if
any of these countries were
invaded by Germany, the
others would help them.
France and England imme-
diately declared war on
Germany and WWII was
in its infancy. France
ended up surrendering and
remained an occupied coun-
try of Germany. England
later teamed up with the
U.S. for military supplies in
the fight against Germany,"


he told the captivated audi-
ence.
"In 1942, there was the
great sea battle in the
Pacific. The Japanese sent
four carriers, cruisers
and destroyers to Midway
Island. Waiting for them
were two American carri-
ers and their fighter pilots.
When the battle was over
all four Japanese carriers
were sunk and the their
pilots were lost. So until the
end of WWII, Japan was
fighting a defensive war
while America was fight-
ing an offensive war," Gaff
added.
"On Jan. 25, 1943, I cel-
ebrated my 17th birthday
as a junior in high school
and decided it was time
to go fight for my country.
My best friend, Wes, and I
drove to the Marine Corps
recruiting office where the
sergeant wouldn't take me
because I was younger and
smaller. Bitterly disappoint-
ed, I headed back to high
school and Wes headed to
Parris Island for training.
That was the last time I
saw him," said Gaff.
"On June 21, 1943, I fin-
ished my junior year of high
school. A little smarter, I
headed to the Navy recruit-
ing office and I was headed
to boot camp. Then they
sent me to Amphibious
Training Base in Little
Creek, Va. where I trained
as a coxswain," recalled
Gaff. "Shortly thereafter, I
was sent to Europe on an
LST. After a long journey,
we arrived in England to
participate in the inva-
sion of Normandy at Utah
Beach. Our LST carried six
landing craft that we used
to transport groups of com-
bat engineers. Their job
was to build a road to get
the mechanized units off
the beach. The same night
that we dropped them off,


safety stand-downs, and issue personal protective equip-
ment such as prescription safety glasses and respirators.
Once the repair process is completed, a test pilot per-
forms the functional check flight. Williams said, "We go
up and test the entire aircraft to make sure it is safe to
return to its squadron."
The pilot checks the overall integrity of each aircraft
using various methods such as shutting down and restart-
ing each engine and ensuring the controls work properly.
Williams is very proud of his contributions to the com-
mand's stellar safety record. During his tenure, he revital-
ized the FRCSE Aviation Safety Program using Franklin
Covey's Four Disciplines of Execution.
These leadership principles focus on identifying and
prioritizing critical goals to achieve maximum outcomes
by creating a scoreboard, translating goals into specific
actions and holding stakeholders accountable for results.
"We are a lot more focused on the details, on how we
bring our programs to the next level," he said. "If you take
away all the small things that distract you during the day
and focus on your WIG (W i1l1y Important Goals), you will
achieve the desired outcome."
The Foreign Object Damage (FOD) program is extremely
important to aviation safety. A misplaced tool, for example,
can severely damage an engine with the potential to bring
down the aircraft. The facility's tool control program moni-
tors roughly 2.5 million tools to ensure they are tracked,
accounted for and properly stored.
The ASO works closely with the Human Factors Council,
the Aviation Safety Council and others to monitor aircrews
and mitigate risk. Further, the ASO uses numerous safety
surveys available from the Naval Safety Center specifi-
cally designed for aircrews, maintenance workers and con-
tractors.
The results provide leadership with real-time snapshots

we transported casualties,
mostly paratroopers from
1011t and 82nd Airborne,
with a lot of broken legs or
ankles because they had
jumped too low and were
loaded down with too many
supplies."
"Our next mission was
to make runs between
England and France car-
rying supplies such as food
and cigarettes. We even had
a whole deck of Lifesavers
candy. In September 1944,
the Navy asked for volun-
teers for a secret mission.
The mission was to take
the Army across the Ruhr
and Rhine rivers," he said.
"They painted our boats
khaki and gave us Army
uniforms and off we went.
After some training, we
took the 9th Army across
the Rhine River on Easter
Sunday 1945. They told us
to expect heavy casualties
but we didn't have one casu-
alty. We helped them build
a pontoon bridge across the
river and got our troops
across," stated Gaff.
"When the war in Europe
was over, we were sent
back to England, deloused,
and put on a ship back to
America. We were the
first troops to arrive at
Brooklyn Navy Yard, still
in my Army uniform.
They gave me a Navy uni-
form and I reported to the
Fargo Building in Boston.
One day, there was a notice
that I was going to be sent
to Treasure Island in San
Francisco to participate
in the invasion of Japan.
But before I departed, we

dropped atomic bombs on
Japan to end the war."
"After my discharge in
1945, I went back to high
school. I graduated and
then tried to get into col-
lege but there were so many
other veterans, the col-
leges were full," he said.
"I finally got a letter from
the University of Rhode
Island telling me to come
take the entrance exams.
I took the exam and was
standing in front of a soda
fountain when a young man
came up to me and asked
me if I wanted to go to a
good school. He wrote down
John B. Stetson University
of DeLand, Fla. I applied,
got accepted and graduated
in 1951."
"My next goal was to find
a job. So I drove to Fort


Lauderdale and went to the
beach. As I put my towel
down, a man next to me
started talking and asked
where I was from. I told him
I had just graduated from
college and was looking for
a job. He said he was a man-
ager at a stockbroker com-
pany and to come see him
about a job. So I went, filled
out the application and had
a job," remarked Gaff.
"Stepping back a min-
ute, when I returned from
Germany, the first thing I
did was go to Wes' house to
see him. His mom told me
he was killed on Guam. As
I look back, I'm 100 percent
certain that if that Marine
sergeant had taken me,
too, I'd be sleeping under

a white cross right now on
some Japanese island. The
second strange incident
was that young man who
told me about the college in
Florida. I often wonder how
he knew about that school,"
said Gaff. "And last, but not
least, I think about when I
put my towel down on the
beach next to my new boss.
What if I had gone 20 feet
further down the beach?"
"Anyway, that's my story
and I'm extremely hon-
ored to be here today and I
acknowledge all you POWs.
You had it tough, so I'm
glad to see you here today,"
he concluded.
The ceremony concluded
with a reception and cake-
cutting ceremony in the

Navy Band Southeast

swings down

to the Florida Keys

From Navy Band Southeast
Navy Band Southeast's Ceremonial Band, under
the direction of MUC Vincent Burrell embarked
on a six-day tour of South Florida this summer.
In June, the band performed at a change of command
ceremony for U.S. Southern Command in Miami. The
ceremony was attended by Secretary of Defense, the
Honorable Robert Gates. The band then traveled to Key
West, Fla., where the following day, they performed at
two high-visibility change of command ceremonies for
Joint Interagency Task Force South at historic Truman
Annex and VFC- 111 at NAS Key West.
Once the ceremonial mission wrapped up, NBSE's
Jazz Ensemble, Orion, under the direction of MUCS Pat
Detroit, seized the opportunity to perform in this beauti-
ful island setting. The band played two highly-lauded
concerts, one at famous Mallory Square Park, near the
Southern-most point of the continental United States and
also at the historic San Carlos Theater near Duval Street
in the historic section of Key West. Audiences at both
events were treated to music ranging from '40's and 50's
big band classics to contemporary jazz and patriotic fare.
Vocalist, MU2 Mallory McKendry was featured on
some classic songs such as "On the Sunny Side of the
Street" and brought the house down with her rendition of
"America the Beautiful."
The following day, the band traveled to one of the higher
keys, Marathon, Fla. The city has a very large popula-
tion of retired military members and patriotic Americans.
Orion performed one last time at the public amphitheater
near the city center. As in Key West, the audience loved
the patriotic fare and service songs!
Band members were appreciative for the opportunity to
travel to the south of Florida and perform for the scores of
patriotic Americans who reside there. "We look forward to
going back again real soon," said the band's newest mem-
ber, drummer, MUSN Ray Laffoon.

"When I informed them that almost any military airfield
in the world can be programmed into the flight simulators
- they requested Marine

Keepes.

who sits just behind the pilot and co-pilot, is responsible for
preflight and postflight inspections, starting and monitor-
ing the engines, fuel management, flight planning and
the proper execution of normal and emergency procedures
required for the safe operation of the aircraft.
"Do you see those four power levers on the console?
Those belong to the flight engineer. When the pilots are
ready to take off, the flight engineer pushes the levers until
the gauges for each engine read 3,500 shaft horsepower,"
said Grandas.
Keepes added that the flight deck team must talk to each
other to be successful. "It's like a couples communication
course at FFSC. You've got to back each other up. If the
pilot's fighting with the controls for some reason, he's got to
ask to co-pilot for help on the rudder or ask the flight engi-
neer for more power. And likewise, the flight engineer and
co-pilot must provide feedback to the pilot."
Patti Tebow was enthusiastic about the simulator ses-
sion. "This was so fun and informative. They were real
patient with us. I must confess that my first landing
approach was a little too low and I crashed into the bay.
Now I have a better understanding of the teamwork and
camaraderie that's so important to warfighter readiness."
"With a 40-year-old aircraft, there's going to be some
malfunctions," said George Ibanez. "They programmed in a
problem with the number two engine so we got to declare
an emergency and land with just three engines. It was an
awesome experience that just increased my respect for the
men and women who fly and maintain these aircraft."
Emily Fox said, "It was a wonderful experience because
the realism made you feel like you were actually flying. It
gave me a greater appreciation for the military skills that
our commands at NAS Jacksonville contribute to maintain-
ing America's security."

Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 4-10


HM3 Elkie Gordon


In Memoriam

HM3 Elkie Gordon

By Dylka Kennedy
Naval Hospital Jax Public Affairs
Naval Hospital Jax staff and friends of HM3 Elkie
Gordon gathered Sept. 3 at All Saints Chapel
on board NAS Jacksonville to honor the life of a
shipmate who died tragically on Aug. 26.
"HM3 Gordon was a 'can-do corpsman' who would
fill in anywhere with a smile," said Naval Hospital Jax
Commanding Officer Capt. Bruce Gillingham at the hospi-
tal's memorial service.
He asked the crowd to begin their healing by remem-
bering the good that Gordon brought to the hospital. He
challenged those in attendance to "continue providing
the same type of outstanding care she provided to every
patient she encountered. The healing begins today," said
Gillingham.
Gordon enlisted in the Navy in September 2003 at
the age of 19. After recruit training at Recruit Training
Center Great Lakes, Ill., she attended Hospital Corpsman
"A" School in Great Lakes. Subsequent tours includ-
ed USS Nimitz (CVN 68), Naval Base San Diego, the
NH Jax deployable platform for Casualty Receiving and
Treatment Ship and Naval Branch Health Clinic (NBHC)
Jacksonville. She was accepted to Surgical Technician "C"
School during her tour at the NBHC and attended the six-
month "C" School at the Naval School of Health Sciences,
Portsmouth Va. in early 2009. In August she reported
back to Naval Hospital Jax where she supported the Fleet
Hospital Jacksonville Detachment and was assigned duty
as a surgical technician in the main operating room.
Gordon made a lasting impact during her Navy career
both with patients and as a mentor and friend to her ship-
mates. She was awarded several awards including the
Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal. Her service
to country, her fellow man and the medical profession will
live on through all the people she touched.
That smile Gillingham alluded to will also live on in the
memories of all who knew her.
Formal family services took place in Miramar, Fla. on
Sept. 9 and 12. Gordon is survived by her son, Sanai,
mother, Avril, and sister, Roya, of Miramar, Fla.

"F tay Fire Smart! Don't Get
Burned!" is theme of the
Fire Prevention Week.
The following are some important
facts about fires:
Cooking is the leading cause of
home fires and injuries. Cooking
equipment is involved in 40 percent
of the reported home fires each year.
Unattended cooking is the leading
cause of cooking fires.
In 2007, U.S. fire departments
responded to 399,000 home fires.
Someone was injured in a home fire
every 39 minutes.
Roughly eight people die in home
fires every day.
A fire department responds to a
home fire every 79 seconds.
Eighty-four percent of all fire
deaths resulted from home fires,
Sixty-three percent of reported
home fire deaths happened in homes
with no smoke alarms or non-func-
tional smoke alarms.
About one-third of home fires and
deaths occur in December, January
and February.

Fire Prevention History

From the NAS Jax Fire Prevention Division

The history of Fire Prevention Week goes back to the Great Chicago
Fire, which began Oct. 8, 1871, lasted 27 hours. Since most of the
damage was incurred the following day, Oct. 9 is the date most
often associated with the tragedy.
The Great Chicago Fire killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 home-
less, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000
acres. While the origin of the fire has never been determined, there has
been much speculation over how it began.
One popular legend was that Catherine O'Leary was milking her cow
when the animal kicked over a lamp, setting the O'Leary's barn on fire to
start the spectacular blaze. This was proven untrue by Robert Cromie, a
Chicago historian.
Another little know fact is that on the same day in Northern Wisconsin,
a fire known as the Peshtigo Fire killed 1,152 people and burned more
than one million acres.
In 1920, President Woodrow Wilson issued the first National Fire
Prevention Day proclamation and, since 1922, National Fire Prevention
Week has been observed on the Sunday through Saturday period in which
Oct. 9 falls.
The theme of the Fire Prevention Week 2009 is "Stay Fire Smart! Don't
Get Burned!" This theme focuses on ways to keep homes fire safe from the
leading causes of home fires, injuries and deaths.

This holiday Season, there's Room at the Table for

everyone. Even if you are away from home. I
















Some time ago I was making a
quick trip to the grocery store
on a day when it seemed that
everyone else was doing the exact
same thing. The parking lot was
full.
As I drove around looking for a
place to park I noticed one spot that
was open, but because of the way the
car in the adjacent spot had parked I
would have to squeeze in at an awk-
ward angle.
Since I was in a hurry, I carefully
pulled in. When I got out of the car I
noticed that my back tire was across
the yellow line in the neighboring
space, but because I had no choice but
to park that way I left it.
While I was in the store the cars
on both sides of my car left and were
immediately replaced by the cars of
other hurried shoppers. Since he
was unable to see what prompted my
crazy parking, the driver of one car
was apparently quite disgusted with
my parking job.
When I returned to my car I found
a note on my windshield that read,
"Learn how to park, $n ",' #%!"
At first I was offended, and thought
of getting revenge on the car that I
assumed belonged to the author of the
note. Then I realized how funny the
situation was. This person had been
so infuriated by my parking job that
he had gone out of his way to let me
know what kind of person he thought
I was.
Because what I did inconvenienced
him, the driver had concluded that I
was bad. On the contrary, I actually
did a pretty good job of parking given
the circumstance. But he didn't see
that. All he saw was that somebody
did something that caused him incon-
venience. His lack of perspective, cou-
pled with his focus on self caused him
to be offended.
This same story is played out often
in our lives in a variety of ways.
Many people experience it when driv-
ing their car and somebody cuts them
off or drives too slow.
They instantly convince themselves
that the other driver has bad inten-
tions and deserves to be treated with
contempt. Though they themselves

ally did quite well when you consider
what I was given to work with. Some
of the people who seem to have a lot
of problems are actually doing amaz-
ingly well considering the circum-
stances they have been given.
Everyone around us has a story.
Each story is full of triumph and
tribulation. Every story has its dis-
appointments and mistakes as well
as its inspirational moments. As we
reach out to others and learn their
stories we will strengthen social net-
works.
We will find our view of people will
become much more loving and opti-
mistic. We will find that we feel more
confident in ourselves and we won't
feel so alone.
And we will find many opportuni-
ties to reach out and bless the lives
of those around us. In short, our lives
and those around us will be happier if
we take the time to understand oth-
ers.

have probably accidentally done the
same to others while driving, they
don't consider the possibility that
there could be other factors that con-
tributed to the inconvenience.
When we get overly focused on our-
selves, we tend to view others in a
very shallow way. We begin to treat
our life as though we are in a movie.
We are the main character, with
those close to us as supporting actors
and actresses. Everyone else we see
as an "extra" a person whose pres-
ence is somewhat irrelevant to the
movie.
Extras in the movies are often
treated as though they are not really
people, and can be used or exploited
for entertainment. We have the ten-
dency to make self-serving assump-
tions about these people with out
really knowing the whole story.
We all will meet people whose lives
seem to be crooked and whose behav-
ior doesn't always fall between the
yellow lines painted by society. Before
jumping to conclusions that he or she
is a "screw-up," or "jerk," or whatever
label is most convenient for us to give
them, remember my parking story.

VP-10 captures

Commander's Cup

Championship

'Red Lancers' halfway home

By Lt. j.g. Sean Kearney and Lt. j.g. Jon Moore
VP 10
T he "Red Lancers" of VP-10 celebrated the midpoint
of their U.S. Central Command deployment Sept.
5 with an Over-the-Hump party. The event was an
opportunity for the Lancers to relax with shipmates and
reflect on a successful first half of deployment.
The party came as a welcome break from the chal-
lenging operational tempo in support of the global war
on terrorism in operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring
Freedom, as well as support of the Joint Task Force -
Horn of Africa.
The high point of the party was the presentation of
the Al Udeid Air Base Commander's Cup Trophy to
VP-10 from Brigadier General Stephen Wilson, 379th Air
Expeditionary Wing, Southwest Asia.
The athletic competition consisted of bench press, bas-
ketball, Sahara challenge (Humvee strength contest), tug
of war, dodge ball and ultimate Frisbee. The Red Lancers
were second in the standings going into the final event
- Ultimate Frisbee. The trophy was secured by the Red
Lancers' competitive spirit and determination.
"Only two points separated the first and second place
teams," stated Wilson at the trophy presentation. "That's

"The Red Lancers have earned this celebration," stated
Robinson. After citing several operational achievements,
he closed with, "A sincere thank-you for a job well done so
far... I look forward to the next three months of safe opera-

The Red Lancers will continue to maintain exceptional
levels of preparedness and mission completion as they
execute the second half of their deployment. Everyone
looks forward to a successful turnover in December and
rejoining their loved ones at NAS Jacksonville

Scouts learn emergency



response from NH Jax pros

By Dylka Kennedy ,
NH Jax Public Affairs _S_


Volunteers from
Naval Hospital Jax
put scouts from
Jacksonville Boy Scout
Troop 837 through their
paces last month in an
Emergency Preparedness
Merit Badge.
Hospital volunteers who
worked with Scout Master
Bill Bishara to coordinate
and instruct the scouts
were HM2 Jose Torres,
HM2 Stephen Bell and
HM3 Clayton Robinson.
Karen Young, a retired
CPO, developed the course
to include tough disas-
ter scenarios and first aid
response. The field exer-
cise was a training event
that focused on improving
various emergency response
functions.
After a demonstration
of first aid methods such
as bandaging and proper
transport of casualties,
they progressed to the
hands-on exercise on the
hospital's Tactical Combat
Casualty Care course. It
focused on the scout's real-
istic response to a tornado
scenario and its aftermath.
The Scouts demonstrated
the ability to manage troop
mobilization using a phone
tree recall system that mea-
sured response times.

HM3 Clay Robinson demonstrates a bandaging technique on HM2 Jose Torres as Boy Scouts
from Troop 837 observe. The scouts were preparing to undergo a tornado rescue exercise with
NH Jax volunteers.


Then they went to the
field to get down and dirty.
The Scouts rescued casu-
alties (mannequins) using
various carries and litters
in transporting them to
safe areas and to first aid
stations they had set up.
They utilized self-help and
buddy procedures in these
rescues. The Scouts ran
their "casualties" through
the obstacle course crawl-
ing under structures and
crossing moats all while
tending to their victim.
The Boy Scouts were
impressed with the chal-
lenging training course.
"I commend all the mili-


tary people who do this
course often because it
looks easier than it actually
is," said Scout Jon Bishara.
They also appreciated
the importance of the skills
they learned. "I am happy
to get this opportunity to
learn what to do during a
tornado event," said Scout
Nicholas Gieschen.
At the end of the training,
before cleaning the grounds
and stowing equipment, the
troop prepared an "After
Action Report" with identi-
fiable lessons learned and
areas for improvement.
Reviewing the day's
event, Young said, "It is


important for these young Scout
people to learn what to do turn
during disaster conditions." Casur
She said she enjoyed ingvi
watching the scouts per-
form what they learned
prior to the drill.
The training helped the
Scouts earn merit badges
for emergency response
training.

Combat



veteran



creates



memorial



display

By Lt. Cmdr. Alphonso Doss
NOSC Jax Administrative/Supply Officer
BMl(EXW/FMF/SW/AW) Bryan
Brackin recently constructed a
9/11 memorial display on the Navy
Operational Support Center (NOSC) Jax
quarterdeck to commemorate the loss of
thousands of fellow Americans on that
tragic day eight years ago and to honor
those still fighting the war on terrorism
both domestically and abroad.
Brackin is a riverine Sailor on temporary
assignment to NOSC Jacksonville, from
his squadron at Naval Amphibious Base,
Little Creek Va.
Riverine squadrons are composed of
high-speed patrol boats. As "brown water"
expeditionary units, riverines perform mis-
sions such as maritime interdiction opera-
tions and waterborne guard posts, among
other tasks. In 2007, Navy riverine squad-
rons deployed to the Euphrates River in
Iraq.
Brackin has been a riverine since his
squadron's commissioning in May 2006.
On his first tour while deployed with
Maritime Interception Operations Team
as a grenadier and interpreter handler, he
was the very first riverine Sailor deployed
to Iraq to discover an enemy arms cache,
laden with enough explosive propellant to
construct multiple improvised explosive

BM1 Bryan Brackin served two tours in Iraq
as a riverine patrol leader.


To comemmorate the terrorist attacks o
2001, BMI Bryan Brackin recently construct
ed a 9/11 memorial display on the Nav
Operational Support Center Jax quarterdeck
devices.
On his second tour to Iraq, he served
as tactical convoy commander and river
ine patrol leader. Brackin led 12 comba
patrols and tactical convoys without a sin
gle mishap or friendly casualty.
He credits his motivation for construct
ing the 9/11 display at NOSC Jax to hi
personal experience in detaining insur
gents and seeing the "up close and person
al" effect that terrorists have on a peaceful
civilian population.
Reflecting on the 9/1 memorial display
Brackin says that he wants everyone wh(
sees the display to remember the thou
sands of innocent victims of 9/11, as wel
as the many sacrifices made by Americar
service men and women.

Navy prepares personnel and families for seasonal flu

By MCSN Desiree Green take care of yourself, follow medi- the virus is to practice coughing in order to be protected from sea-
Navy Public Affairs Support Element, Norfolk __ _l_ no1 t. l i t ..nO if .l.. tr tq llh. fl ,o nq1 flu.


With flu season quickly
approaching, officials for
the Navy and Marine
Corps Public Health Center
(NMCPHC) are urging military
personnel and their families to be
aware of the risks of seasonal flu
and how to prevent contamina-
tion.
Influenza is not the com-
mon cold and can be a severe
to life-threatening disease.
Immunization remains the pri-
mary method of reducing seasonal
influenza illness and its complica-
tions. Getting an annual influen-
za vaccine immunization protects
many people from getting the dis-
ease or becoming severely ill. The
vaccine not only helps protect vac-
cinated individuals, but also the
community as a whole by prevent-


ing and reducing the spread of the
disease.
"If you are healthy, you should


cat practices, an1 s Cay in1 oucnt
with medical providers," said
Capt. Bruce A. Cohen, command-
ing officer in charge of NMCPHC.
It is the current Department
of Defense's (DOD) policy that
annual seasonal influenza vacci-
nations are required for all active
duty military personnel, Selected
Reserves, and healthcare workers.
According to Cohen, the peo-
ple that are affected most are the
elderly, the very young, and peo-
ple who are sick or not as healthy
as the general population.
Flu viruses are spread mainly
from person-to-person through
coughing or sneezing by people
with influenza. People may also
become infected by touching
something with influenza on it
and then touching their mouth
or nose. Some ways to prevent


becoming infected


or spreading


JIIno your eL tJuow, ra eIIr an your L
hand. Also, for added protection,
wash your hands frequently using
proper hand washing techniques.
With the pandemic H1N1 virus
still making headlines, NMCPHC
officials want military families
to be prepared and to receive the
H1N1 vaccine once available. "It's
important that people listen to
the information that is coming
out," said Cohen. "It is very easy
to take this information and mis-
interpret it."
All military personnel will be
vaccinated against the H1N1 flu
virus and it is anticipated the
vaccine will also be available to
all military family members who
wish to be immunized. Because
the seasonal flu is a different
strain of flu than H1N1, it is still
important for everyone to receive
a seasonal influenza vaccination


sonll i1u.
Navy Medicine will be monitor-
ing the 2009 H1N1 virus care-
fully over the coming months and
will be proactive in developing
contingency plans to address any
public health issues if required.
Although force health protec-
tion is the responsibility of every
commander and service member,
it is important for all hands to
take the proper actions to protect
personnel, beneficiaries, cowork-
ers and family members against
influenza of any kind.
Seasonal flu immunizations
have already began across mili-
tary facilities worldwide. The
H1N1 vaccination program is
expected to begin in early October.

FISCJ exceeds goal for 'Caps for Kids'


By Kari Hansen
FISCJ Site Training Logistics Coordinator


Under the direction of Fleet and
Industrial Supply Center
Jacksonville (FISCJ) Commanding
Officer Capt. Karl Rau, the command par-
ticipated in the Chief of Naval Operations
(CNO) supported "Caps for Kids" a
Navy Office of Community Outreach pro-
gram that serves hospitalized children
throughout the nation by collecting donat-
ed ball caps and delivering them to hospi-
tals in areas without a Navy presence.
The goal was to collect 50 brand new ball
caps in three weeks and FISCJ collected 52
in just two weeks.


As an extra incentive for participa-
tion, the FISCJ Employee Welfare and
Recreation Committee (EWRC) concur-
rently ran a charity hot dog and hamburg-
er sale at the FISCJ headquarters site.
Eager employees stopped by on their lunch
breaks to purchase a juicy hamburger or a
hotdog and also dropped hats into the
donation box.
Regarding the success of the event, Rau
said, "While ultimately, the Caps for Kids
program coordinators organized, coordi-
nated and managed the campaign . the
ultimate success depends on the generos-
ity of the people who donated. It was very
moving to see all those FISCJ employees
who donated to the program."


Cell phone options during deployment or PCS


By Lt. Cara Addison
Judge Advocate General's Corps


Congress has given yet another finan-
cial protection to the men and women
who serve this country -and it
involves cellular phone service contracts.
A provision recently added to the Service
members' Civil Relief Act (SCRA) covers the
cancellation and suspension of cell phone
contracts in the event of a deployment or
permanent change of duty station (PCS).
Section 535a is found near the SCRA sec-
tions addressing termination of residential
leases and maximum interest rates, but it
has its own specifics about when it applies
and how it works. The law states that any
service member who receives orders to
deploy outside the continental U.S. for at
least 90 days, or who receives orders for a
PCS within the U.S., may terminate or sus-
pend a cell phone service contract.
But there are limitations. First, the con-
tract needs to be "entered into by the ser-
vice member." This means that the con-
tract must be held in the service member's
name. Second, the service member must
have signed the contract before the date
the deployment begins or the PCS takes
place. Finally, it is a condition that "the ser-
vice member's ability to satisfy the contract
or to utilize the service will be materially
affected by such deployment or permanent
change."
Upon receiving the request of a service
member meeting the requirements outlined
above, the cellular phone service provider
shall:
(1) Grant the requested relief without
imposition of an early termination fee for
the termination of the contract or a reacti-
vation fee for suspension of the contract; or


(2) in the case that such service member is
deployed outside the U.S., permit the ser-
vice member to suspend the contract at no
charge until the end of the deployment with-
out requiring, whether as a condition of the
suspension, that the contract be extended.
One more word of caution the law
requires the service member to make
a request for the termination or suspen-
sion, and include a copy of his or her mili-
tary orders. While no specific format of the
request is necessary, it is best to make it in
writing at least 60 days before the date you
wish the termination or suspension to take
effect. Keep a copy of all correspondence
with the contractor.
Please realize that the SCRA is federal
law, and as such, would trump state law.
Check the appropriate state law on this
topic to see if it is more favorable to the
service member. Florida law, for example,
allows termination in the event of a deploy-
ment of at least 60 days, rather than 90
days. However, Florida Statute 364.195
only addresses termination of contracts and
not suspension, and does not have the same
"shall" language for the contractor to grant
relief. Rather, it merely states that the ser-
vice member "may" terminate.
One goal of the SCRA is to prevent ser-
vice members from facing financial bur-
dens due to their military service. Given the
popularity of cell phones, the deployment
rate of our forces, and the frequency of PCS
moves, Section 535a is definitely a helpful
and much appreciated law.

One-stop shopping for HIN1/Flu information


From Commander, Navy Installations
Command Public Affairs

As of Sept. 15, the Navy Installa-
tions Command website is the
U.S. Navy's go-to site for infor-
mation about seasonal flu and H1N1.
This site is unique in that it is stan-
dardized across the Navy Installations
Command enterprise and has 89 "front
pages" representing the headquarters,
11 Regions and 77 Installations. Visitors
can get to the Operation Prepare button
on all front pages.
"In an effort to reach our total
Navy family, we are using the Navy
Installations Command website's
Operation Prepare capability to provide
current, relevant and meaningful infor-
mation about seasonal flu and H1N1 to
our Fleet, Fighters, Families and our
local communities where we reside, says
Vice Adm. Mike Vitale, commander,
Navy Installations Command.
"It is important to everyone to prepare
for this flu season and this site should
assist with getting the right information


to the right folks today."
The Navy Installations Command
website has been expanded to include
updated information for both seasonal
flu and the H1N1 flu virus. Visitors to
the site can get a quick understanding of
how the current H1N1 pandemic relates
to and differs from the familiar seasonal
flu experienced each year.
There is information on how the virus-
es are transmitted, their symptoms and
treatments, and, most importantly, how
to protect yourself and family members.
This new addition also offers links
to updates from Navy Medicine, the
Center for Disease Control (CDC), and
the Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS) to help the Navy com-
munity stay informed on any H1N1/Flu
developments.
The site will provide live, breaking
H1N1 news feeds via RSS from the CDC
and the HHS.

FIREFIGHTERS: NH Jax honors


those who 'have given so much'


From Page 15


than 6,291 were injured. Among those who
died were 411 emergency workers who
responded to the scene to rescue people
and fight fires. The New York City Fire
Department (FDNY) lost 341 firefighters
and two FDNY paramedics. The New York
City Police Department lost 23 officers.
The Port Authority Police Department lost
37 officers, and eight additional EMTs and
paramedics from private EMS units were
killed. Fifty five military members died in
the Pentagon attack.
Recalling this horrific timeline returned
all of those assembled at the quarters cere-
mony to the horror of that morning, taking
them back to where each person was at the
time. It also recalled the days that followed
-days in which all Americans were united
by the terrible resolve that Americans can
muster when our freedom is under attack.
After recognizing the firefighters at
morning colors the SCPOA showed their
appreciation to our firefighters by going
to the Mustin Road Fire Station to wash
fire trucks. "This was a privilege for the
SCPOA," Horton said.
ooo


"It's not everyday we are able to give
back to those that have already given so
much to us. We considered this an honor
to show thanks for what they do."
"When he got the phone call last week
(from the hospital) I was pleasantly sur-
prised by the offer to do this," said NAS
Jax Fire Department Station Chief Craig
Parker. "Gestures like this are nice. It's
the thought process that goes into it that is
important to us."
"We have a lot of young people who in
2001 maybe weren't around in the position
they are now but for some of them 9/11 is
why they chose such a career. In as much
as it was a dreadful day it inspires people
to make a difference," he said. "I think
that's the note we need to take from it.
Like any kind of tragedy it's the thought
process that comes after it that makes
people change their opinions in what they
want to do with their lives."
He pointed out that many of the NAS
Jax firefighters are also military reserv-
ists, several of whom have deployed to Iraq
or Afghanistan. These patriotic Americans
serve their country on two fronts, here at
home and in the war zone.

Suicide prevention is urgent


By Katherine L. Cruise
Military Pathways Program

In a nation where more people
die by suicide than by homi-
cide, the need for suicide pre-
vention is urgent.
More than 90 percent of people
who die by suicide suffer from one
or more psychiatric disorders at
the time of death. For military
personnel, these disorders are
often closely linked to the unique
hardships they face. Fallen com-
rades, parentless children, griev-
ing communities-these are some
images that may never leave
the memories of those in com-
bat. However, with appropriate
care, the emotional turmoil that
sometimes follows can be alleviat-


ed and suicide can be prevented.
Military Pathways has
launched an expanded online
screening tool that allows ser-
vice members and their families
the opportunity to assess their
mental well being, anonymously,
and to identify symptoms before a
problem becomes serious.
The new online tool offers mili-
tary service members and their
families free, anonymous mental
health self-assessments at www.
MilitaryMentalHealth.org and
1-877-877-3647.
Although most depressed peo-
ple are not suicidal, most suicid-
al people are depressed. Failure
to recognize depression and
other mental health issues such


as PTSD can have devastating
consequences, underscoring the
importance of detecting these dis-
orders early.
Approximately 70 percent
of people who die by suicide tell
someone about it in advance, and
most are not receiving treatment
at that time. Thus, friends, family
members, and battle buddies are
often the best resources to prevent
suicide, but many people don't
know how to recognize the warn-
ing signs or how to help someone
who may be at risk. This is where
online screenings can help.
Military Pathways' online
screening, funded by the
Department of Defense (DoD), is
available 24/7 and includes free,


anonymous self-assessments for
depression, alcohol problems,
bipolar disorder, generalized anx-
iety disorder, and posttraumatic
stress disorder. In addition to
detecting an individual's poten-
tial risk and their need for fur-
ther evaluation, the new online
tool offers advanced options
that provide users with specific
resources in their communities as
well as enhanced learning materi-
als and resources.
Additionally, the National
Suicide Prevention Lifeline is
available 24 hours a day by calling
800-273-TALK (8255); active duty
members and veterans should
press "1" after being connected.
Military Pathways gives ser-


vice personnel and their families
the opportunity to learn more
about mental health and alcohol
abuse through anonymous self-
assessments offered online, via
the phone, and through special
events held at installations. The
program is designed to help indi-
viduals identify their own symp-
toms and access assistance before
a problem becomes serious. The
self-assessments address post-
traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),
depression, generalized anxiety
disorder, alcohol use, and bipolar
