Commander, U.S. 2nd Fleet Vice Adm. Mel
Williams Jr., presents his coin with a handshake to
AO3 Emmanuel Joseph during his Sept. 20 visit to
VP-16. Joseph earned the coin, as well as a Safety
Pro award, for preventing a potentially serious mis-
hap with his quick thinking during an aircraft tow-
ing equipment malfunction.
Commander, U.S. Second Fleet Vice
Adm. Mel Williams Jr. visited
the VP-16 "War Eagles" onboard
NAS Jacksonville Sept. 17 to meet with
the men and women who comprise the
squadron and recognize them for their
support to Second Fleet's mission.
Williams spoke about the importance
of maritime patrol and reconnaissance
services that the P-3C Orion squadron
provides, specifically in the area of anti-
submarine warfare (ASW).
"The Navy's P-3s are vital to Second
Fleet in the execution of our mission
to ensure maritime domain awareness
in support of homeland defense," said
In addition to praising the VP com-
munity as a whole, Williams also recog-
nized the VP-16 Maintenance Control,
Operations and Intelligence divisions for
their individual contributions to mission
During his visit, Williams also toured
the recently completed Hangar 511, which
is the newest and most modern hangar in
the VP community. The structure was
designed specifically to support the P-8
Poseidon aircraft which will replace the
aging fleet of P-3C Orion aircraft begin-
ning in 2013. It is also the largest and
one of few "green" hangars in the U.S.
VP-16 Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Anthony Corapi was appreciative of
Williams' visit and recognition of his
Sailors. "It means a lot when our senior
leadership takes time from their busy
schedules to thank the Sailors who make
our Navy the best in the world," he said.

The VP-62 "Broad Arrows," a Navy Reserve Force
unit based at NAS Jacksonville received the 2009
Department of the Navy (DoN) Safety Excellence
Award Sept. 15 at a ceremony in Washington D.C.
The Safety Excellence Awards were established by
The Honorable Gordon England, former Secretary of the
Navy, to personally recognize Navy and Marine Corps
commands that demonstrate extraordinary excellence by
sustained mission success with simultaneous exemplary
According to the commendation, VP-62 incorporated
safety and operational risk management as top priori-
ties in planning and executing its mission, resulting in
remarkable safety successes despite the most demanding
operational conditions. Achievements included:
Reaching an extraordinary aviation milestone more
than 29 years and more than 96,260 flight hours of Class

S seasonal flu vaccinations are expected to
be ready for family members and other
authorized beneficiaries the week of
Oct. 5 or shortly thereafter," said NH Jax Public
Health Director Capt. Joseph McQuade, MD.
When seasonal flu vaccine arrives, it will be
available to eligible beneficiaries during the follow-
Monday and Wednesday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tuesday and Thursday: Noon to 8 p.m.
Friday: No immunizations.
Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Vaccines for the H1N1 (also called swine flu) are
slated to arrive at a later date and the schedule for
administering the vaccines will be announced as
soon as possible.
"We may experience temporary shortages of the
seasonal and/or H1N1 flu vaccines, so I advise peo-
ple to call the hospital before departing for the
immunization clinic to ensure adequate vaccines are
on hand," said McQuade.
Once hospital officials announce arrival of the
vaccines and the immunization clinic opening, ben-
eficiaries should report to the temporary clinical
building located near the hospital's emergency room
entrance to receive vaccination. You should enter
the facility through the temporary clinic's outside
doors and not through the hospital's main building.
Reserved parking near the temporary clinic will
be marked for people to use while they visit the

Pneumococcal vaccines (protection from pneumo-
nia) will also be administered to high risk benefi-

Random observations, admissions
By Sarah Smiley
M aybe you've noticed that I
spend a great deal of time
making fun of my good-
natured husband, Dustin.
I keep a file of letters from readers
expressing their concern that I'm too
hard on Dustin just to remind myself
that not one of the letters is actually
In any case, lest you think that I
believe Dustin is the only one screw-
ing up, or that I don't find faults in
myself, here is a random list of obser-
vations and admissions to level the
When I found out that Dustin
was putting money in an IRA every
month, I famously yelled, "Why, that's
like throwing money out the window!"
When I was 16, I washed my car
with an SOS pad.
Sometimes, when I want to leave
a party, a meeting, or an exercise
class at the gym, I pretend that I've
just received a call on my cell phone.
I think coffee tastes and smells
like an ashtray.
It is very stressful for me when I
didn't hear someone's name the first
time, but didn't bother to ask them to
repeat it. Then, months later, once we
are confirmed acquaintances and it
would be wrong and completely offen-
sive for me not to know their name, it
becomes necessary to dodge situations
where I might have to address them
Hey, MoneyChic! My wife and I
are thinking about buying a home.
I'm worried about her less-than-per-
fect credit report and score. When we
apply for a home loan, will they pull
both of our credit histories? Maybe
they'll pull just mine due to the fact
that I'm the primary breadwinner in
our family and the one who will be
paying the mortgage?
MoneyChic says: Typically, pro-
spective lenders look at the score of
the primary source of income before
making a credit decision. However,
in the case of a joint mortgage it's
formally. Sadly, this occurs more often
than is acceptable.
I once used the camera feature
on my iPhone to sneak a picture of a
woman's hairstyle that I liked. When
she caught me, I pretended that I
was reading a text message. Before
iPhones, I did the same thing at Sea
World using my digital camera.
Daylight Saving Time throws off
my schedule for weeks.
I sometimes tape a piece of hair
across the door of the attic so that I
will know, by the broken strand, if
someone is hiding in there.
I tell the pharmacist not to include
the informational brochure with my
prescription, because if I read it, I will
never take the medicine. Similarly,
it seems like a total waste (to me, at
least) of money to produce a commer-
cial that advertises that your product
will cause heart palpitations, excessive
sweating, kidney failure, insomnia,
nightmares, increased urination, and
If Dustin doesn't answer his cell
phone the first time, sometimes I get
angry, hang up and call back again.
Caller ID has made it much easier
for Dustin to ignore me.
If Dustin tells me I can't do some-
thing, it is guaranteed that I will try.
When he says, "Whatever you do,
a little different. According to Gerri
Detweiler of Credit.com all six FICO
scores will be pulled and evaluated
before a decision is made.
Six scores you are thinking? Yes,
there are three credit bureaus:
Equifax, Experian and Trans Union.
They will pull your scores and then
they will pull your wife's score from
all three companies. They do this
because not all information is the
same on each report. (Another rea-
son why you should take advantage
of your entitlement to a copy of each
report annually. But that is another
don't clean the bathroom," I think he
is on to me about this.
Like a force field, my reading
glasses seem to increase my cone of
personal space by at least two extra
feet. They are similar to sunglasses
in this way. And yet, unlike sunglass-
es, my eyes are not hidden in read-
ing glasses. I forget this when I roll
my eyes or stare off into space while
someone is talking to me.
When I say that I'm afraid of cats,
I'm not kidding.
In second grade, I used my tongue
to pull out my permanent retainer
from the roof of my mouth so that I
could go home. (Sorry, Mom.)
Sometimes, when I'm being inde-
cisive, I come to a conclusion using the
"If this wad of paper makes it into the
waste basket on the first try, I will take
my medicine despite what I read online
about it." (This is the same way I came
to the decision to marry Dustin.)
No, I'm only kidding about that last
one. For all my jokes, he truly is the
brains of this operation. That's why,
as we celebrate our 10th wedding
anniversary this year, my last admis-
sion is that Dustin (aka my biggest
fan) is a tolerant, patient, loving man
with a great sense of humor. I am
lucky to have him.
Moneychic article in itself.)
It's not unusual for lenders to throw
out the high and low scores for each
person and then focus in on the two
middle scores for decision making.

home ownership before making this
big step. Go to the library and check

From Naval Supply Systems Command
The U.S. Navy Postal Clerk (PC) and
Storekeeper (SK) ratings will merge Oct.
1 to form the new Logistics Specialist (LS)
rating. This conversion applies to all active duty
Sailors and Reserve component E-6 and above
according to NAVADMIN 326/08. Conversion for
Reserve component E-1 through E-5 begins April
"This merger helps define the supply enlisted
workforce that will support the Navy in the 21st
century," said Commander, Naval Supply Systems
Command (NAVSUP) and Chief of Supply Corps
Rear Adm. Mike Lyden.
"Our future work processes will require a more
broadly trained Sailor who can provide a unique
skill set to our Navy and joint warfighters. By com-
bining these two ratings, we lay the groundwork for
future readiness and greatly enhance career oppor-
tunities for all Sailors in the LS rating."
Merging these two ratings will give the PCs
a viable career path, broader skill sets, and
increased advancement opportunities with no
adverse affect on the SKs, according to NAVSUP
Command Master Chief Jim Collins. "And the LS
rating will also benefit Sailors with a broader skill
set and greater diversity in both sea and shore
Logistics Specialist more accurately describes
the knowledge, skills and abilities of the new work-
force and further aligns with our future force
requirements, according to Rear Adm. Lyden.
He added, "Our supply enlisted community
plays a vital role in executing the Navy's Maritime
Strategy mission both afloat and ashore."
A new rating manual, mobile training teams and
online training programs were developed to edu-
cate PCs and SKs in their new roles as LSs.
The SK rating badge will be used to represent
the new LS rating. All personnel transitioning to
the new LS rate are required to convert uniform
rating badges to the SK rating badge no later than
Oct. 1, 2011.

FRCSE artisans detach the starboard wing of a high-hours F/A-18 Hornet that will be inspected for signs of fatigue. If necessary, spars, ribs, straps and other internal components will be manu-
factured on site to restore the wing to like-new condition.
FRCSE REPAIRS FATIGUED HORNET WINGS
By Marsha Childs and Frank Taormina
FRCSE Public Affairs
Thanks to the collective creativity of the inno-
vative Fleet Readiness Center Southeast
(FRCSE) workforce, "legacy" F/A-18 Hornets
(models A-D) diagnosed with internal wing cracks
are no longer relegated to the scrap yard. Instead,
FRCSE artisans have pioneered two repair solutions
that include the tooling of more than 50 wing parts
no longer available from the original manufacturer
or Navy supply channels.
Why is this important? According to congressional
testimony by the Chief of Naval Operations, the Navy
faces a sizeable gap in aircraft inventory as older
legacy Hornets retire before the F-35C Joint Strike
Fighter is available. FRCSE has pioneered numerous
methodologies that rehabilitate legacy Hornets as a
way to mitigate the strike-fighter gap until the F-35C
achieves full operational capability.
A Hornet's wings are routinely checked when the
aircraft is inducted at FRCSE for high flight hours.
When wing spars develop cracks three inches or lon-
ger, they must be repaired or replaced. Cracks are
detected visually or by nondestructive inspections
such as film or real-time X-ray and ultrasound screen-
Small wing spar cracks were first observed in 2004
at Fleet Readiness Center Southwest (FRCSW) in
San Diego. FRCSE and FRCSW joined forces to X-ray
40 wings on Hornets undergoing maintenance and
repairs at both facilities. Based on those findings,
two types of repair methodologies were developed: the

Skin-on repairs are used for spar cracks three to
six inches in length. The wing's composite covering
is kept intact. This process increases the material's
density and installs a residual stress field for added
Skin-off repairs are used for cracks seven inches or
longer. The wing's covering is removed and the defec-
tive spar or section is replaced.

The FRCSE creative team decided that if they could not buy
the parts, they would build them -more than 50 in all. These
included not only the spars but also the fixtures, former, ribs,
straps and a whole host of tools and tooling systems to support
Overhaul and Repair (O&R) Shop Supervisor Buster
Hathcock said, "It was important to make sure a repair of this
magnitude was economically feasible. We knew that once we
completed the first spar, future spar repairs would go much
quicker, so it turned out to be a win-win."
The Tool Engineering and Computer Numerically Controlled
(CNC) Programming Branch Head Bill Sowell and his team
created prototypes for the parts using computer-aided design
files supplied by Boeing.
Aerospace Engineering Technician Phil McLane authored
the draft Repair of Repairables (ROR) guidance for the
Hornet's inner wing repair. The document includes installation
inspection requirements along with processes and procedures
for the rework.
The ROR guidance is also being used by other Navy facilities
and Boeing. McLane said the guide explains, "This is what
you are going to do and this is how you are going to do it."

An F/A-18 Hornet inner wing spar cracked from fatigue and
water intrusion. FRCSE pioneered the fabrication and replace-
ment of intermediate wing spars and the tools and tooling
needed in 2008.
He credits Process Engineer Carol Brooks, the project man-
ager, for her strong support. "We take Phil's requirements and
create the tooling and equipment to make the process work,"
Mechanical Engineering Technicians Michael Smith and
Mitch Maxson designed the prototypes of fixtures and tooling
to support the rework. They not only designed new parts, but
in some cases they improved the design of existing ones.
Maxson recognizes the enormity of the project and the many
contributions of personnel throughout Naval Air (NAVAIR)
"It is a work in progress. As you find more problems you
develop more tooling to solve them. It is a group effort," he said.
Because of this innovative wing repair solution, a grounded
F/A-18 Hornet was returned in November 2008 to its custo-
dian, the Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX-9) in China
Test pilot and FRCSE F/A-18 Production Officer Cmdr.
Mitch Conover, who deployed to Iraq from May 2008 to March
2009, knows all too well what a grounded plane can mean for
troops on the battlefield.
"It throws a wrench in your operational flow and it can put
troops on the ground requiring close air support in jeopardy,"
The expertise of many trades was needed to accomplish this
unprecedented restoration. The FRCSE workforce identified
and targeted a major repair issue and tackled it head-on.
With five intermediate wing spars currently in production,
the FRCSE Industrial Business Office sees the potential for
new business opportunities.
Business Management Specialist Larry Hanks is working
with Boeing on the Fleet Integrated Readiness Support Team
When finalized, FRCSE will fabricate the repair parts and
supply them to Boeing.
In turn, Boeing will prepare wing spar kits to include the
spars and other milled parts from the depot, as well as addi-
tional items such as fuel tubing needed for the repair. The kits
will be returned to FRCSE to enhance production capabilities
and streamline efficiency.
"An.\ hi-iu that brings in work for the depot is good for us,
said Hanks. "It is also great for the Fleet."

A provision recent-
ly added to the Service
members' Civil Relief Act
(SCRA) covers the cancel-

cell phone contracts in the
event of a deployment or
permanent change of duty
Section 535a is found
near the SCRA sections
addressing termination of

has its own specifics about
when it applies and how it

for at least 90 days, or who
receives orders for a PCS
within the U.S., may ter-
minate or suspend a cell
phone service contract.
But there are limita-
tions. First, the contract
needs to be "entered into
by the service member."
This means that the con-
tract must be held in the
service member's name.
Second, the service mem-
ber must have signed the
contract before the date the
deployment begins or the
PCS takes place. Finally,
it is a condition that "the
service member's ability to

Sept. 15 came and

Rather than bring the

10 things you can do
to fight prejudice
1) Be honest: Recognize
your own biases through
open discussion with oth-
ers. Examine your own
prejudices, biases and val-
ues. A team will not succeed
Commands would do well to
foster discussion and get to

and group identity
will help reduce
anxiety and defen-
siveness in rela-
tion to others.
3) Be a partner:
The Navy cel-
s Bingol side others from
and cultures is a great way
to increase familiarity with
4) Be an anti-racist par-
ent: Expose your children
to diversity at a young
age. Children can benefit
from knowing other chil-
dren from different groups
at very early ages, before
prejudices and biases get
in the way of their making
5) Be a role model: Be
vocal in opposing racist
views and practices. And
don't just criticize, but help
others learn about issues
6) Be an ally: Offer sup-
port to victims of discrimi-

7) Be active: Challenge
racism whenever and wher-

a copy of his or her mili-

Please realize that the
SCRA is federal law, and
as such, would trump state
law. Check the appropri-
ate state law on this topic
to see if it is more favor-
able to the service member.
Florida law, for example,
allows termination in the
event of a deployment of
at least 60 days, rather
than 90 days. However,
Florida Statute 364.195
only addresses termination
of contracts and not sus-
pension, and does not have
the same "shall" language
for the contractor to grant
relief. Rather, it merely
states that the service
member "may" terminate.
One goal of the SCRA is
to prevent service mem-
bers from facing financial
burdens due to their mili-
tary 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.

was going to stop "Pride" from rocking the
rock! They wowed the audience with songs
by Fallout Boy, Kings of Lleon, and Keith
"The crowd was going crazy, they real-

est member, guitarist, MUSN Pat Waters.
Following their concert, band members
engaged the massive crowd to promote
Navy awareness and greet potential Navy
Music Program candidates.
As one audience member put it, "I never
expected the Navy Band to play rock and
country like that, you were awesome."
The band's sponsor and event coordina-
tor was Wendy Thomas. "This is the sec-

Motorcycle Safety Foundation rider coach Dave Hepburn leading the way.
By Clark Pierce
MSF-certified rider coach Dave Hepburn assists novice
Elizabeth Erler in setting up her radio and ear phones.
The NAS Jacksonville Safety Department hosted
educators and trainers from the Motorcycle Safety
Foundation (MSF) Sept. 21-24, as they tested the
curriculum for their "street rider" course. The one-day
class is aimed at novice bikers who have completed the
MSF Basic Rider Course yet lack significant street
experience (less than 150 miles) on their motorcycles.
Dr. Sherry Williams, MSF director of quality assurance
and research, said the new class involves (1) assessing the
students' riding skills on the driving range, (2) interac-
tive classroom training to expand rider perceptions and
peripheral vision, and (3) driving on public streets under
the tutelage of their rider coach.
"We're learning a lot from our research at NAS
Jacksonville. We came here with what we think might
work and then make adjustments after we try things out
with actual novice riders," said Williams. "When finalized,
the class will be open to any type of motorcycle owner -
from Ninjas to Hogs. The feedback we've received so far
shows that novice riders are very enthusiastic about hav-
ing a professional rider coach guide them to a higher level
of operational competence."
Williams noted that the street rider course is designed
to create a more confident and safety conscious motorcy-
For on-the-street training, they form a pod of up to three
students led by one rider coach, or a pod of four students
positioned between leading and following rider coaches.
MSF Rider Coach Dave Hepburn agreed that the
course is a confidence-builder that allows novice riders to
enhance their motorcycle handling skills.
"For on-the-street training, we pair one rider coach with
up to three students. Each student wears earphones in
their helmet so they can hear their rider coach point out
potential speed and traffic hazards. We begin with a route
through a low-traffic environment. Depending on how
well they perform, we drive additional routes on base that
progressively add more curves, intersections and parking
lots," said Hepburn.
Novice rider Elizabeth Erler recently completed the
MSF Basic Rider Course at NAS Jacksonville. "My hus-
band, a lieutenant at VP-30, is a long-time motorcycle
rider who persuaded me to get my own bike about two
months ago. Since then, I've ridden my Honda Shadow
about half a dozen times in an abandoned neighborhood.
This street rider course is just right for me in order to get
more comfortable with my riding ability and to stay safe
on the highway. Coach Dave (Hepburn) has helped me
with my slow-speed turns and how to keep my eyes up,
scanning the road for potential traffic hazards," she said.
Novice rider Carla Barkley has been riding for about
four months and is already on her second motorcycle.
"I started out on a Harley Sportster, which is pretty fast
and nimble. But after completing my basic rider course, I
drove my husband's Harley Heritage Softail Classic and
I just had to trade up. Now I'm riding a Softail Deluxe and
loving it," said Barkley.
"Helping the MSF people develop this course is very
interesting. It's a big confidence builder being out here
with a rider coach. I found his feedback on the slow-speed,
parking lot type of maneuvers to be really helpful. And on
the street, I liked that he validated what we were doing
right as we drove along," she added.
Hepburn was pleased with the first street route. "These
two ladies demonstrated excellent control, balance and
lane position in the midst of real traffic with construc-
tion detours, blind driveways and pedestrians. Now we're
taking off on route two that progressively adds more chal-

lenges to improve their driving skills," said Hepburn.
Williams said it would take a few months to analyze
her data and observations from the street rider course
test session. "This will be the first MSF rider course that
ventures beyond the driving range and onto public streets.
So far, each participant has been grateful to have a profes-
sional rider coach guiding them along the way."
Traffic congestion caused by construction zones and rush
hour created a challenging situation for the novice motor-
cycle riders and their coach.
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation is a not-for-profit
organization that is internationally recognized for its com-
prehensive, research-based, rider education courses that
promote lifelong learning for motorcyclists and continuous
professional development for MSF-certified rider coaches.

ates for more than 35 years the Robert
E. Mitchell Center for Prisoner of War
The Navy established the Center for
Prisoners of War (CPOW) program in 1971
at Point Loma, Calif., in anticipation of
hostilities ending in Vietnam. The CPOW
supported the unique medical needs of
both the returning repatriates and their
By 1978, the Army and Air Force dis-
continued their original charter while
the Navy transferred its operation to
the Naval Aerospace Medical Research
Laboratory (NAMRL) at NAS Pensacola,
Fla. It then moved to the Naval Aerospace
Medical Institute (NAMI), also at NAS
Pensacola, and is now part of NMSC's
Navy Operational Medicine Institute
(NOMI) at NAS Pensacola.
Capt. Robert E. Mitchell began the
Navy's study of long-term effects of the
POW experience in 1973 and established
the Repatriated Prisoner of War (RPW)
studies program. Mitchell performed repa-
triate examinations at the center until he
retired in 1990. He remains with the pro-
gram as Director Emeritus.
In the 1990s, Air Force and Army repa-
triates from Vietnam were inducted into
the Navy's program, making the center
the only DoD-sanctioned RPW studies pro-
In January 1998, the center was former-
ly dedicated and named after Mitchell. The
center continues to provide for the unique
healthcare needs of former POWs and
their families at no cost to the patients.
"At one time we were dubbed the DoD's
Medical Center of Excellence for POW
care," said Dr. Jeffrey Moore, Ph. D., a
clinical neuropsychologist and a retired
Navy commander who has been with the
center for more than 20 years.
"All of our patients in the military are
national heroes, and it's an honor to be
here for them. However, the repatriates
represent a special class of heroes," Moore
explained. "They're not just case numbers.
Many of them have been my patients for
more than 20 years. Most of them say
their (POW) experience made them a bet-
ter person and made them stronger, but
they wouldn't want to do it again."
The center's patients run the gamut,
from middle-class Americans to state and
federal government leaders to corporate
CEOs. It now evaluates an average of 520
former POWs and their spouses annually.
The patients represent all branches of the
military from WWII, the Korean Conflict,
Desert Storm, Somalia, Bosnia and Iraqi
Freedom. Participation is on a voluntary

'Mad Foxes' toe
the flight line
By Lt. j.g. Jason Bruce
VP-5 Public Affairs Officer
Ahot summer afternoon in Florida is
not the most comfortable environ-
ment to work in, especially if you're
on NAS Jacksonville's flight line prepar-
ing a P-3C Orion for launch.
Muggy heat radiates from the tar-
mac, sending temperatures well over 95
degrees, and often into the 100s. Despite
the intense heat, ADAN Cindy Loeak
directs the engine start sequence for the
crew who are ready for take off. Being a
new airman to VP-5, Loeak is undergoing
on-the-job training to become a plane han-
dler. Her supervisor is AT3 Jeffrey Barron.
Loeak and Barron are part of a 26-mem-
ber team known as the VP-5 Line Shack.
Barron explained that a P-3C plane han-
dler or 'yellow shirt' must be thoroughly
trained on how to launch and recover air-
craft at the flight line.
"Plane handlers often lead aircraft tran-
sits/tows between parking spots and han-
gars to assist with maintenance. This evo-
lution may involve up to eight personnel
to ensure the safety of the approximately
$36 million dollar aircraft. Plane handlers
are designated by our commanding officer
once they have demonstrated their knowl-
edge in all aspects of ground safety," said
The plane handler has the last external
look at the P-3C before it taxes out for
takeoff. If an external aircraft emergency
occurs while on the ground, the plane han-
dler is likely the first person to signal the
pilots to initiate emergency procedures.
An environmental challenge of plane
handlers and associated maintainers is
working with extreme noise (over 100 deci-
bels) from the aircraft engines and auxil-
iary power units.
Utilizing required hearing protection
eliminates voice communication and neces-
sitates the use of 'line shack sign lan-
guage,' which is done with hand gestures
during the day and lighted wands at night.
There are more than 25 signals used for
directing actions such as starting/stop-
ping engines and steering the aircraft to
emergencies like brake or engine fires.
However, assuring the safety of han-
gar area and flight line starts well before
engines are turning. Every morning, the
line shack directs a squadron FOD (foreign
object damage) walk down. The evolution
organizes hundreds of personnel to walk
the area of the hangar and the entire flight
line to help maintain clean areas for safe
Another core responsibility of the line
shack is fuel surveillance. This involves
sampling the fuel quality in each aircraft
before every flight, or every 24 hours.
Plane handlers inspect fuel for dirt, water
and microbiological contaminates, which
can cause, "Erratic or incorrect fuel quan-
tity indications, fuel system icing, and
damage to engines and fuel system com-
ponents," according to the OPNAVINST
ADAN Cindy Loeak, assigned to the "Mad
Foxes" of VP-5, signals to the crew of a P-3C
Orion that the number four propeller is turn-
ing. Yellow Shirt AT3 Jeffrey Barron super-
vises her hand signals for training during the
propeller turn for training purposes. Plane
handler training is an important part of main-
taining a constant state of readiness for VP-5.
A P-3C's mission often involves low-lev-
el profiles (200 to 1,000 feet), primarily
over water. By ensuring fuel quality on the
ground, aircrews can have confidence in
the air when operating at low altitudes
executing combat maneuvers with mini-
mal danger of engine malfunctions. When
operating overseas, fuel sources must be
scrutinized due to varying fuel regulations
in foreign countries.
The line shack team is comprised of all
experience levels, from newly enlisted
junior airmen to very experienced senior
enlisted. They include a variety of avia-
tion ratings, such as electrician's mate,
machinist's mate, boatswain's mate, ord-
nanceman and structural mechanic. Also
integrated into the line shack personnel
are enlisted flight engineers, who are air-
crewmen knowledgeable about all aircraft
systems, emergency procedures and flight
"Working with such an array of experi-
ence and job skills creates a unique train-
ing environment. Our squadron's most
junior people handle a very serious job and
they are always thoroughly trained to meet
the challenging demands," explained Lt.
Emily Eley, the line shack division officer.
"Our junior airmen are typically
assigned to the line shack for about three
months to earn their yellow shirt before
transitioning to work in their respective
ratings," said Eley.
Through steady leadership, the Mad
Foxes train their line shack team to meet
challenging circumstances and provide the
squadron with a crucial service. The plane
handlers' consistent efforts ensure that all
flights whether on a hot afternoon or in
the dark at midnight start up and shut

Crenshaw to recognize
F lorida 4th Congressional District
Vietnam-era veterans will receive
certificates of Special Recognition
from U.S. Representative Ander
Crenshaw in a ceremony slated for Nov.
9 at NAS Jacksonville. The application
deadline to receive the honor is October
"Vietnam veterans served our country
with distinction during one of our most
tumultuous times as a nation," said
"They answered the call to duty, but
when they returned home, many did not
receive the recognition they properly
deserved. These brave individuals helped
fight for freedom and democracy at a time
when their country needed them, and this
ceremony will help show our appreciation."
In the past two years, Crenshaw has rec-
ognized nearly 500 Vietnam veterans eli-
gible for either the Vietnam Service Medal
or the Vietnam Campaign Medal.
This year's ceremony will recognize the
contributions of all who served in the U.S.
Armed Forces, including the Coast Guard
and the Merchant Marines, during the
dates of the Vietnam War, March 1, 1961 -

What if I already registered my
emergency contact information?
Even if you previously registered your
contacts, you will want to update the
registry if your contacts change or if they
move or change their phone number.

sure to register their own emergency
contacts, but also it's a good idea to make
sure loved ones update their informa-

USDA consumer alert
Keep food safe during an emergency
By Donna Karlsons
U.S. Department of Agriculture
The U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) is providing recommen-
dations to those affected by tropi-
cal storms, flooding or severe weather in
the Southeastern United States due to
Hurricane Claudette. USDA is hopeful
that this information will help minimize
the potential for foodborne illnesses due
to food spoilage from power outages and
other problems that are often associated
with severe weather events.
"Power outages can occur at any time
of the year and it often takes from a few
hours to several days for electricity to be
restored to residential areas," said USDA
Acting Under Secretary for Food Safety
Ron Hicks. "Without electricity or a cold
source, foods stored in refrigerators and
freezers can become unsafe.
Bacteria in food grow rapidly at temper-
atures between 40 and 1400F, and if these
foods are consumed, people can become
Steps to follow to prepare for a pos-
sible weather emergency:
Keep an appliance thermometer in
the refrigerator and freezer. An appliance
thermometer will indicate the temperature
in the refrigerator and freezer in case of
a power outage and help determine the
safety of the food.
Make sure the freezer is at 0F or
below and the refrigerator is at 400F or
Freeze containers of water for ice to
help keep food cold in the freezer, refrig-
erator or coolers after the power is out.
Freeze refrigerated items such as left-
overs, milk and fresh meat and poultry
that you may not need immediately this
helps keep them at a safe temperature lon-
Plan ahead and know where dry ice
and block ice can be purchased.
Store food on shelves that will be safe-
ly out of the way of contaminated water in
case of flooding.
Have coolers on hand to keep refrig-
erator food cold if the power will be out for
more than four hours. Purchase or make
ice cubes and store in the freezer for use in
the refrigerator or in a cooler. Freeze gel
packs ahead of time for use in coolers.
Group food together in the freezer -
this helps the food stay cold longer.
Steps to follow after the weather
Keep the refrigerator and freezer doors
closed as much as possible to maintain the
The refrigerator will keep food safely
cold for about four hours if it is unopened.
A full freezer will hold the temperature for
approximately 48 hours (24 hours if it is
half full) and the door remains closed.
Discard refrigerated perishable food
such as meat, poultry, fish, soft cheeses,
milk, eggs, leftovers and deli items after
four hours without power.
Food may be safely refrozen if it still
contains ice crystals or is at 400F or below
when checked with a food thermometer.
Never taste a food to determine its
Obtain dry or block ice to keep your
refrigerator and freezer as cold as possible
if the power is going to be out for a pro-
longed period of time. Fifty pounds of dry
ice should hold an 18-cubic-foot full freezer
for two days.
If the power has been out for sev-
eral days, check the temperature of the
freezer with an appliance thermometer. If
the appliance thermometer reads 400F or
below, the food is safe to refreeze.
If a thermometer has not been kept in
the freezer, check each package of food to
determine its safety. If the food still con-
tains ice crystals, the food is safe.
Drink only bottled water if flooding has
Discard any food that is not in a water-
proof container if there is any chance that
it has come
into contact with flood water. Discard
wooden cutting boards, plastic utensils,
baby bottle nipples and pacifiers.
Undamaged, commercially prepared
foods in all-metal cans and retort pouches
flexible, shelf-stable juice or seafood
pouches) can be saved. Follow the Steps
to Salvage All-Metal Cans and Retort
Pouches in the publication "Keeping Food
Safe During an Emergency" at: www.fsis.
Thoroughly wash all metal pans,
ceramic dishes and utensils that came in
contact with flood water with hot soapy
water and sanitize by boiling them in
clean water or by immersing them for 15
minutes in a solution of one tablespoon of
unscented, liquid chlorine bleach per gal-
lon of drinking water.
When in doubt, throw it out!
FSIS has available a Public Service
Announcement (PSA), available in 30- and
60-second versions, illustrating practical
food safety recommendations for handling
and consuming foods stored in refriger-
ators and freezers during, and after, a
power outage. Consumers are encouraged
to view the PSA at: http://www.fsis.usda.
Consumers with food safety questions
can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual rep-
resentative available 24 hours a day at
The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry

noticed that Navy spousedom
seems to be lived in cycles; sea
duty shore duty and repeat. I love shore
duty. Sea duty; not so much.
May I ramble about orders? There will
be a point at the end, I promise. As the
window for orders approaches 'it' starts;
that wrestling with the unknown that
impacts our life. I start anticipating and
assessing the possible options. Will we be
able to stay here? Will it be a good oppor-
tunity for my husband? Will it be a career
enhancer or career killer? Will he love his
next billet or one that he endures, counting
down the days till our next 'window'? Will
we be moving? I love my house, will I find
a house I enjoy as much as this one. Where
will these orders send us, down the road
or across country? What about my job, my
career? What about the kids, what about
family, what about friends? Arghhh! The
mental gyrations can be dizzying yet I put
myself through it every time! "Hello, my
name is Beth and I'm a control freak."
So we have orders. My husband just
informed me that he has orders to the
Horn of Africa. He has GSA orders for a
year in Djibouti, Africa. One year. Boots on
the Ground. Africa.
Many of you may know that my hus-
band just battled kidney cancer, and won.
He is home recuperating from surgery to
remove the cancerous tumor from his kid-
ney. We are so blessed. They got it all! Can
I tell you that during this time I prayed?
I prayed fervently. I prayed dangerously.
"Lord, thank you for revealing this can-
cer so early that it has the best possible
prognosis. Please let them get it all!" Lord,
please let him be approved to reenlist."
"Lord, 'You' decide where his next orders
should take him, you know his career
desires, put him in the best place for Scott
-just let him be able to reenlist!"
Did I really pray that? Okay, Lord -
when I said "You decide" what I meant was
"You decide the orders that would I want...
while still being the best place for him." I
misspoke God. Can we have a 're-do?'
So, we have orders. After my initial
pity party I found my big girl panties,
changed my attitude and set about the
task of readying myself for GSA orders.
I loved; let me repeat that, I really loved
shore duty, so much so that I forgot much
about deployment readiness. Orders in
hand means I need to get my ducks lined
up so my Sailor can deploy assured that
I'm 'good to go'. Where are those birth cer-
tificates? My power of attorney expired
when? Not another horrid photo ID, valid
for another three years? I know I have a
checklist somewhere... or did I throw it
away in the bliss of shore duty?
Got orders? Are you heading back to
sea duty? Perhaps your hubby is like my
man, heading out on GSA orders (by the
way I understand IA/GSA training at Fort
Jackson is known for developing skilled IA/
GSAs and some great abs I'm just say-
The point is orders change everything.
Will you join me on my journey from shore
duty to sea duty/deployment... walking
with friends always makes the journey so

In 1946, the third-production Lockheed P2V-1 Neptune, nicknamed Truculent Turtle, was
stripped of its combat equipment and fitted with extra fuel tanks for a total capacity of 8,592
gallons 5,000 more gallons than the normal Neptune patrol aircraft. Its unrefueled distance
record would stand until 1962, when bested by a USAF B-52 Stratofortress.

"Cost of Dying" on the Rise:
Funeral Professional Offers Alternatives
BY ROBERT ELLSWORTH
As Americans watch the costs of
vital goods and services increase, the
cost of the average funeral is also on
the rise. In 2004, the National Funeral
Directors Association (NFDA) report-
ed that funeral expenses, excluding
the cemetery plot, averaged around
$6,500. The NFDA claims the 2008
average is nearly $7,500 though
some sources insist that figure is
between $8,000 and $10,000 again,
excluding cemetery expenses.
There is a move in the indus-
try, however, intended to make early
planning commonplace, which could
bring costs under control. According
to industry experts, planning your own
funeral relieves loved ones of making
very difficult, potentially expensive
decisions in your absence. Planning
with some companies also allows for
expenses to be paid up-front, mean-
ing you pay today's prices rather than
potentially inflated prices years from
now. The process is gaining in popu-
larity because of both the emotional
and financial benefits.
Several companies offer early
planning services to handle every
aspect of a funeral. One organiza-
tion, the Dignity Memorial network,
is the nation's largest network of
locally-operated funeral homes and
cemeteries (roughly 1,600 participat-
ing facilities). Network representative
Mike White says the group hopes to
make early planning more common,
so families are better prepared when
the inevitable comes.
"If you make your own arrange-
ments ahead of time, you are making
it easier on your loved ones," White
says. "Many people who participate
tell us they are relieved because they
know they have done the right thing
for their families, and now they can
get on with their lives."
In addition to providing peace of
mind, programs can include payment
plans, so that funeral expenses are
much easier to manage; as mentioned,
pre-paying could mean that future
price increases are avoided. White
notes, however, that you can create a
plan without pre-paying.
Planning your own arrangements
does ensure that your final wishes
are properly addressed and that your
loved ones are not taken advantage
of financially, in their time of grief.
Although this subject is difficult to
consider, a professional service makes
the planning process relatively easy
and fast so, as White suggests, you can
get on with your life knowing that you
made the right decisions for your loved
ones and possibly relieved some of the
To make the process even eas-
ier, the Dignity Memorial network
offers a free planning guide with
information about making your own
arrangements. The helpful guide also
includes worksheets so you can begin
planning. The network even offers a
special planner for veterans, which
answers common questions for former
service members and provides informa-
tion on receiving veterans' discounts.
For a free planner and companion

tion, call toll free 1-800-240-5442 or

The Dignity Memorial brand name is used to identify
a network of licensed funeral, cremation and cemetery
providers that comprise the Dignity Memorial network.
The Dignity Memorial network includes affiliates of
Service Corporation International, 1929 Allen Parkway,
Houston, Texas, as well as many other fine independently
owned and operated establishments.
