FRCSE pilot earns Bronze Star for IA service in Iraq
FRCSE pilot earns Bronze Star for IA service in Iraq


By Marsha Childs
FRCSE Public Affairs


Cmdr. Mitchell Conover was awarded the Bronze
Star Medal on Sept. 17 at Fleet Readiness
Center Southeast (FRCSE) for distinguished ser-
vice while serving as Brigade Electronic Warfare (EW)
Officer, 18th Combat Engineer Brigade, Iraq from May
31, 2008 to March 12, 2009 during Operation Iraqi
Freedom.
His tactical and technical efforts to implement direct
radio command and control between Route Clearance
(RC) teams on the ground and the military aircraft sup-
porting from above were relentless. Conover's innovative
solutions to detect and suppress enemy Radio Controlled
Improvised Explosive Devices (RCIED) saved American
lives on the battlefield.
Twice an alternate Individual Augmentee (IA), Conover
knew he might be called up one day. That call came
while he was serving as the class desk officer at Naval Air
Systems Command (NAVAIR), Patuxent River, Md. He
possessed the unique skill-set needed for this assignment
owing to his strong aviation background.
He graduated from the Naval Academy in 1994 with a
Bachelor of Science Degree in Aerospace Engineering and
earned a Master of Science Degree in Aviation Systems
from the University of Tennessee Space Institute in 2006.
To prepare him to deploy combat ready, Conover attend-
ed the Navy Individual Augmentation Combat Training
(NIACT) at Fort McCoy, Wisc. in April 2008.
He reported to Joint Counter Radio Electronic Warfare
(JCREW) Composite Squadron One (JCCS-1) in Bagdad,

Iraq in May. The unit's mission was to integrate and
synchronize electronic warfare and JCREW operations for
coalition forces.
As the primary EW officer for nine months, Conover
was involved in every aspect of the mission. He ensured


the Brigade maintained critical EW coverage for its tacti-
cal vehicles, which cleared more than 196,000 kilometers
of rugged terrain in Northern Iraq.
His leadership enabled soldiers and Marines to conduct
combat operations in the safest and most effective manner
possible against an elusive enemy.
"We neutralized the RCIED threat to Army and Marine
Corps ground units by ensuring supply routes were
cleared. Our vehicles were specifically designed and bet-
ter equipped to clear IEDs," he said. These vehicles out-
fitted with onboard systems to prevent IED detonations
have a proven track record of reducing casualties through
EW Coordination and JCREW operations.
Operating in areas considered to be hotbeds of enemy
activity, the 18th Engineer Brigade moved among three
locations: Contingency Operations Base (COB) Speicher
near Tikrit, Forward Operating Base (FOB) Warrior at
Kirkuk, and FOB Marez near Mosul. "We didn't stay in
one spot very long. We moved around the country a lot,"
he said.
While assigned to the Brigade, Conover gained a greater
appreciation for the Army, its mission and the soldiers
who endured many hardships.
To see him through the long months of isolation and
loneliness, Conover relied on his strong faith in God. "I
was reminded of the Old Testament, Psalm 139 how it
says God's thoughts for us outnumber the grains of sand.
Well, I saw a lot of sand," he mused.
Conover also enjoyed the Morale, Welfare and Recreat-

Officers' Club Sept. 29 to
celebrate the 39th anniver-
sary of the Navy Family
Ombudsman Program.
Master Chief Petty Officer
of the Navy (MCPON) (SS/

speaker.
In his welcoming
remarks, NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr. said that


recognizing the achieve-

men is one of his top priori-
ties.
"Nobody works harder to
enhance our family readi-
ness. Quite frankly, com-
bat readiness and family
readiness are tied togeth-
er and our leadership
aboard this base would
not be as successful with-
out the volunteer efforts
of our ombudsmen. Please
accept our congratulations
and thanks for your coun-
sel and dedication," stated
Scorby, who also recognized
Ombudsman Chair Vivian
Alcott, as well as Carolyn
McCorvey and Wilhelmina
Nash of Fleet and Family

ing the event.
Commander, Navy
Region Southeast Rear
Adm. Tim Alexander
expressed his gratitude.
"The ombudsman's role
is vital to effectively sup-
porting our warfight-

NAS Jax takes the lead to prevent domestic violence


By Clark Pierce
Editor
More than 125 Sailors and civil-
ians joined together to launch
the awareness campaign against
"intimate abuse" with a walk and rally
Oct. 1 at Patriots Grove, where NAS
Jacksonville Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr. signed his proclamation,
designating October as Domestic Violence
Awareness Month aboard the station.
"No other service requires the family
separations that the Navy must endure.
As a result, that often leads to stressful
situations that may be taken out on the
family. My message is simple: don't mis-
treat your family. It will not be tolerated,"
he declared.
"At the end of the day, when all the dust
settles, we need to take care of our mili-
tary families, so we can maintain read-
iness," said Scorby. "The events of this
month stress the importance of command

Looking back in time...


Military men are literal


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


Dustin and I just
returned from a
two-day vacation
in Boston, where we saw
U2 in concert at Gillette
Stadium ("Tonight we are
in the presence of God...
and Tom Brady," Bono
said).
The day before we left
Bangor for Boston, Dustin
told me that one of his fel-
low Naval Academy gradu-
ates would also be in the
city because his "cruiser"
was pulling into port
Sunday. (Note: Dustin
claims he did not say
"cruiser," but "cruise ship."
His claim is wrong.)
"Let's see if we can get
a tour of his ship," Dustin
said.
Before I tell you how I
responded, let me remind
you that I have been a
Navy dependent since the
day I was born. I have
grown up around battle-
ships especially aircraft
carriers and for me, visit-
ing them is as common and
mundane as going to the
grocery store.
The smell of greasy
metal ladders mixed with
the intoxicating and unfor-
gettable scent of JP-5 (jet
fuel) is as much a part of
my childhood memories as
the smell of my mother's
homemade cookies. I am
more comfortable amid the


Sarah Smiley
culture and atmosphere of
a ship than I am inside a
typical office building (my
dad never had one of those).
So when Dustin suggest-
ed that we take a tour of
his friend's "cruiser" during
our short vacation without
children, I turned around
to face him, put on my
best annoyed expression
(the one that means, "Did
you really just say that,
Dustin?") and said, "Do you
think I'm driving all the
way to Boston just to tour
some ship? Not on my kid-
free vacation. No way."
Dustin was confused.
Although he said "cruis-
er" (and disputed it later),
what he meant was "large,
civilian cruise ship." His
friend, now out of the mili-
tary, works as an acupunc-
turist for a cruise liner.
Yes, you read that right. He
went from being a military
officer trained for war to
an acupuncturist schooled
in the art of natural heal-
ing and relaxation. That's
somewhat like a coal miner

shake."
He looked at me for a
moment, then set down
the pen he was holding in
his hand and proceeded to
shake his hips in his seat. I
knew then that I was deal-
ing with a creature wholly
unlike myself, one that is
extremely literal and obedi-
ent.
Midway through our
drive to Boston, I realized
that when Dustin said
"ship," he meant a cruise
ship. Suddenly I was excit-
ed about the chance to tour
something I've never expe-
rienced before. I realize, of
course, that many civilians
would think the opposite
and might travel thousands
of miles for the opportunity
to tour an aircraft carrier.
I'm not one of them. I have
been there, done that. But
I've never been on a cruise
liner.
"I don't know," I said.
"I hear 'ship' and I think
military. Maybe I'm pro-
grammed."
"But, Sarah ..."
"I just got confused, okay,
Dustin?"
Dustin turned to me and
said, "Sarah, how many
military ships do you know
of that have an acupunctur-
ist onboard?"
He might have a point.


becoming a manicurist.
The point here is that my
perspective is so warped
by my military upbring-
ing that when Dustin said
"ship," I never once consid-
ered that he might mean
something civilian. And
when Dustin spoke of his
Naval Academy friend, I
never imagined he would be
an acupuncturist.
This miscommunication
also highlights the result
of Dustin's own entrench-
ment in the military, where
most things are literal and
without question. It didn't
occur to Dustin to explain
what he meant by "ship."
Shouldn't I just know?
Dustin takes things at
face value. Case in point:
when we were first mar-
ried, we went to dinner at
a restaurant where Dustin
ordered a milkshake. Some
of his milkshake spilled
and became a puddle on the
table. When the bill came,
Dustin unknowingly put
the receipt in the puddle of
shake. As I watched the liq-
uid soak through the paper,
Dustin stared into space as
he calculated the gratuity
in his mind.
"You just put it down in
shake," I told him.
What Dustin heard:
"You just put it down and

HEY, MONEYCHICI


Hey, MoneyChic! I
went out and bought a
fancy coffee out in town for
$4.14 and later picked up
my uniform at the cleaners,
which cost $12. I remem-
bered to ask for military
discount, but shouldn't
have even bothered.
I didn't realize that I was
overdrawn on my bank
account, so each of these
transactions had an addi-
tional $29 bank charge.
Little did I realize that my
morning spending of $16.14
actually cost me $74.14.
Talk about expensive coffee
and dry cleaning!
MoneyChic says: Well
it wasn't expensive coffee, it
was expensive negligence.
Not knowing how much is
in your bank account can be
a costly mistake, especially

if you are using debit cards.
Banks offer "overdraft
protection" like it's a cour-
tesy, but it's easy to rack
up a cascade of fees when
spending with a debit card.
This year alone, banks
are expected to bring in
$27 billion in overdraft fees
and the majority of these
are from debit cards. Forty
five percent of our nation's


banks collect more from
overdraft fees than they
make in profits from issu-
ing loans.
In the past, if your
account had insufficient
funds, the transaction was
simply denied. Once lend-
ers discovered the easy
money associated with
charging overdrafts, it soon
became big business.
Unfortunately, the major-
ity of overdraft fees are
paid from a small pool of
customers. Ninety three
percent of bank charges
come from 14 percent of the
bank's customers. Just by
taking the initiative to keep
track of your finances, this
will keep you out of that 14
percent that repeatedly pay
charges.
Think of it this way for

extra incentive...a $27
overdraft fee that you repay
in two weeks, on a $20 pur-

The bottom line is that if
you are going to use a debit
card, you need to be abso-

Happy 234th


Birthday, Navy!

By Staff
The United States Navy celebrates its 234th birth-
day. The United States Navy was originated Oct.
13, 1775, during a meeting in Philadelphia; when
the Continental Congress voted to outfit two sailing
vessels, l armed with
10 carriage guns, swivel
guns, and L crews of 80.

deployed on a cruise of
three months to inter-
cept trans- ports car-
rying muni- tions and
stores to the British army
in America. This was the
original leg- isolation out
of which the Continental
Navy grew and as such, constitutes the birth certificate
of the U.S. Navy.
To understand the significance of the decision to send
two armed vessels to sea under the authority of the
Continental Congress, you must understand the strategic
situation in which it was made and consider the political
struggle that lay behind it.
Americans first took up arms in the spring of 1775 not
to sever their relationship with the king, but to defend
their rights within the British Empire. By the fall of
1775, the British North American colonies from Maine to
Georgia were in open rebellion. Royal governments had
been thrust out of many colonial capitals and revolution-
ary governments put in their places. The Continental
Congress had assumed some of the responsibilities of a
central government for the colonies, created a Continental
Army, issued paper money for the support of the troops
and formed a committee to negotiate with foreign coun-
tries. Continental forces captured Fort Ticonderoga on
Lake Champlain and launched an invasion of Canada.
In October 1775, the British held superiority at sea,
from which they threatened to stop the colonies' trade and
to wreak destruction on seaside settlements. In response,
a few of the states had commissioned small fleets of their
own for defense of local waters. Congress had not yet
authorized privateering.
A small group of men in Congress had been advocat-
ing a Continental Navy from the outset of armed hos-
tilities. Foremost among these men was John Adams
of Massachusetts. For months, he and a few others had
been arguing for the establishment of an American fleet.
Adams and his followers argued that a fleet would defend
the seacoast towns, protect vital trade, retaliate against
British raiders, and make it possible to seek out among
neutral nations of the world, the arms and stores that
would make resistance possible.
Still, the establishment of a Navy seemed too bold a
move for some of the timid men in Congress. Some south-
erners agreed that a fleet would protect and secure the
trade of New England but denied that it would help the
southern colonies. Most of the delegates did not consider
the break with England as final and feared that a Navy
implied sovereignty and independence. The most the pro-
Navy men could do was get Congress to urge each colony
to outfit armed vessels for the protection of their coasts
and harbors.
On Oct. 3, 1775, Rhode Island's delegates laid before
Congress a bold resolution for the building and equip-
ping of an American fleet, as soon as possible. When the
motion came to the floor for debate, Samuel Chase, of
Maryland, attacked it, saying it was "the maddest idea in
the world to think of building an American fleet." Even
pro-Navy members found the proposal too vague. It lacked
specifics and no one could tell how much it would cost.
On Oct. 5, 1775, Congress received intelligence of two
English brigs, unarmed and without convoy, laden with
munitions, leaving England bound for Quebec. Congress
immediately appointed a committee to consider how to
take advantage of this opportunity.
Its members were all New Englanders and all ardent
supporters of a Navy. They recommended first that
the governments of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and
Connecticut be asked to dispatch armed vessels to lay in
wait to intercept the munitions ships. Next, they outlined
a plan for the equipping by Congress of two armed vessels
to cruise east to intercept any ships bearing supplies to
the British army.
Congress let this plan lie on the table until Oct. 13, 1775
when another event occurred in favor of the naval move-
ment. A letter from Gen. George Washington was read in
Congress in which he reported that he had taken under
his command, at Continental expense, three schooners to
cruise off Massachusetts to intercept enemy supply ships.
The commander-in-chief had preempted members of
Congress reluctant to take the first step of fitting out war-
ships under Continental authority. Since they already had
armed vessels cruising in their name, it was not such a
big step to approve two more. The committee's proposal,
now appearing eminently reasonable to the reluctant
members, was adopted.
The Continental Navy grew into an important force.
Within a few days, Congress established a naval commit-
tee charged with equipping a fleet. This committee direct-
ed the purchasing, outfitting, manning, and operations of
the first ships of the new Navy, drafted subsequent naval
legislation, and prepared rules and regulations to govern

the Continental Navy's conduct and internal administra-
tion.
Over the course of the War of Independence, the
Continental Navy sent to sea more than 50 armed vessels
of various types. The Navy's ships seized enemy supplies
and carried correspondence and diplomats to Europe,
returning with needed munitions.
They took nearly 200 British vessels as prizes, some off
the British Isles themselves, contributing to the demoral-
ization of the enemy and forcing the British to divert war-
ships to protect convoys and trade routes. In addition, the
Navy provoked diplomatic crises that helped bring France
into the war against Great Britain. The Continental Navy
began the proud tradition carried on today by our United
States Navy, and whose birthday we celebrate each year
in October.

October is Energy


Conservation Awareness Month


By Cliff Plante
NAVFAC Southeast Resource
Efficiency Manager
During October, the
Navy is partici-
pating in National
Energy Awareness
month by align-
ing its energy aware-
ness program with the
Department of Energy
(DOE) theme, "A sustain-
able energy future put-
ting all the pieces togeth-
er."
According to DOE
Outreach Coordinator
Annie Haskins, the theme
encourages the work-
force to see how indi-
vidual energy conscious
decisions fit into the big
picture to help solve Navy
energy challenges.
NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
said, "Every Sailor,
Marine and civilian has
a role to play in improv-
ing energy security, ener-
gy efficiency and envi-
ronmental stewardship.
Conserving energy is crit-
ical to mission success."
During energy aware-
ness month, NAS
Jacksonville will host a

CLIFF'S ENERGY NOTES

HVAC equipment is biggest energy cost


By Cliff Plante
NAVFACSE Resource Efficiency Manager


hat is the largest energy user
in your building? It probably is
the heating, ventilating, and air
conditioning (HVAC) systems. Obviously,
HVAC systems provide comfort control in
any building by heating and cooling the
air. This is not all that HVAC systems
do, they filter the air, control the humid-
ity and building pressure while providing
fresh air makeup all at the same time. All
of this happens with very little interaction
between the building occupants and the
HVAC systems.
Each building is a unique set of sys-
tems-heating, cooling, and ventilation.
Well-designed and maintained energy
efficient HVAC systems are essential for
employee comfort and productivity. These
systems also inhibit the growth of molds
and fungi within the building.
Unfortunately, many buildings are out of
control, i.e.; systems and controls are not
functioning the way they were designed to
perform. This is true for new as well as old
buildings, because most buildings are not
commissioned once construction is com-
pleted. Commissioning is the process that
checks to see that the building is operating
the way it was designed to operate, find-
ing and correcting design and construction
flaws. For example, controls often are oper-
ating in the manual mode, their automatic
features being totally wasted.
The following suggestions are guidelines
only. Discuss with your building ener-
gy monitor or energy manager the best
actions to take to ensure safe and efficient
operation of your building's systems.
Check regularly with building occu-
pants about their comfort, noting any
problems, including uncomfortable tem-
peratures, drafty areas, mold and mildew
growth, excessive or inadequate humidity,
and suspected indoor air quality problems.
Depending on the cause of the discomfort,
put in a work order request, e.g., to repair
or replace broken window panes, install
missing blinds on windows, and install
plastic strip curtain barriers in industrial
open bay applications.
Periodically check exterior windows
and doors to reduce outside air (infiltra-
tion) entering the building through cracks


around doors, windows, and through the
outside shell of the building. Infiltration
allows unwanted heat loss or heat gain.
Infiltration not only causes discomfort to
building occupants, but is also a major con-
tributor to energy losses and unnecessary
heating and cooling costs.
Make sure all exterior doors and
windows are closed when heating or
air conditioning is on. Sometimes signs
help to remind occupants to close doors.
Excessive heat and cold may mean adjust-
ment, repair, or replacement if necessary.
Thermostat adjustments may be in order.
If the building has any non-conditioned
(heated or cooled) rooms, keep doors closed.
Portable space heaters are an ener-
gy (and safety!) nightmare in facilities.
Further, NAS Jacksonville and CNRSE
Installation policies prohibit space heaters
in personal workspaces. If they are found
they will be removed!
Make sure air conditioning/heating
vents are not covered or blocked entirely.
Remove window air conditioners or
cover them during the heating season.
Sunlight through building windows
creates a lot of heat. This heat may be
welcome, in a cold climate, or undesirable
on a summer day. Ensure that all window
coverings are adjusted accordingly, closed
in the summer and open in the winter.
If the building has a loading dock,
make sure the door is open only when
needed.
Radiators that are operating at full
output are very common in older buildings.
Installing thermostatic valves on each
radiator to control the output enables occu-
pants to maintain comfort without opening
windows in the winter. In some situations,
adding radiator controls can cut steam or
hot water use by one-third.
If you notice steam or hot water leak-
ing from the heating system, report imme-
diately. A failed open steam trap with a
1/4-inch orifice at 15 psig pressure loses
394,000 pounds of steam annually. If the
failed trap discharges into a condensate
return line, you may not see the escaping
steam.
Steam heating systems pipes need
insulation. If any insulation missing or
damaged submit a work order.

Flu vaccines, good hygiene key for protection


From Naval Hospital lax
Public Affairs
Vaccinations and
good personal
hygiene are essen-
tial for helping to prevent
catching or spreading sea-
sonal and H1N1 influen-
za (swine flu) virus and
health officials say it is
especially important for
pregnant mothers, children
and high risk people to get
vaccinated as soon as pos-
sible.
Seasonal flu vaccinations
have begun and H1N1 vac-
cinations will begin here in
October. To help ensure
safe healthcare environ-
ments, Naval Hospital
Jacksonville (NH Jax)
medical providers and staff
were the first group of peo-
ple to receive seasonal flu
vaccinations.
Active duty military per-
sonnel are currently receiv-
ing seasonal flu vaccina-
tions as well. Vaccines for
seasonal flu and H1N1 will
be available to family mem-
bers and other eligible ben-
eficiaries who want to be
immunized.
"Seasonal flu vaccina-
tions are expected to be
ready for family members
and other authorized ben-
eficiaries here the week of
October 5th," said Capt.
Joseph McQuade, MD,
USN, Director for Public
Health, NH Jax. "Watch
for signs on base and in the
hospital and clinics, sto-
ries in base newspapers,
information on our web
site, or call the Central
Appointment Line to learn
about vaccination locations,
times and procedures."
Opportunities to obtain
vaccinations will be
available during day-
time and evening clin-
ics. Beneficiaries will be
able to obtain information
at http://navalhospitaljax.
med.navy.mill or by calling
(904) 542-4677.
"Each member of the
Navy community has a role
during the seasonal flu sea-
son getting immunized
is the first step," said Vice
Adm. Adam M. Robinson,
Jr., Department of the
Navy Surgeon General.
"The second step is being
informed and informing
others about personal pre-
vention methods against
the flu. These simple steps
will reduce the effects of
seasonal and H1N1 flu."
Influenza is not the
common cold, and can be
a severe to life-threaten-
ing disease, according to
McQuade.
"Influenza vaccines are
safe and people should
get vaccinated every year
unless told otherwise by
their physician or autho-
rized medical provider,"
said McQuade. "I espe-
cially encourage pregnant
mothers to get vaccinated
for both seasonal and H1N1
influenza as soon as pos-
sible because they can be at
high risk for catching influ-
enza, especially the H1N1
virus."
Other target groups, as
outlined by the Centers
for Disease Control (CDC)
include: people who live
with or care for children
younger than six months
old, healthcare and emer-
gency medical services per-
sonnel, people between the
six months and 24 years
old, healthcare and emer-
gency medical services
personnel, and people 25
through 64 years old who


are at higher risk for the
2009 H1N1 because of
chronic health disorders or
compromised immune sys-
tems.
Examples of chronic con-
ditions include kidney dis-
ease, heart disease, HIV,
and diabetics. People who
smoke or suffer from asth-
ma or other breathing prob-
lems are also at higher risk
of flu complications.
"All of these people
should contact their pri-
ooo


mary care managers about
appropriate vaccinations
and other healthcare
issues," said McQuade. "In
support of the surgeon gen-
eral's tobacco-free stance,
this is also a great time for
people who smoke to take
advantage of our tobacco
cessation programs."
As with the seasonal flu
vaccine, when the H1N1
vaccine arrives all health-
care providers, staff, and


military members will be
vaccinated first. The vac-
cine will then be available
to family members who
want to be immunized.
Remember, H1N1 requires
a different vaccine than
seasonal flu and previ-
ously having the seasonal
flu shot or the seasonal
flu itself does not protect
against H1N1.
"We've already vaccinat-
ed more than 2,000 health

VR-S8 TAKES SPORTS CHALLENGE TROPHY

By AM3(AW) Nicole Bieneman
Staff Writer I


The NAS Jax Morale, Welfare and Recreation
Department (MWR) hosted the 2009 Fall Sports
Challenge Oct 1-2, bringing out hundreds of par-
ticipants for some "friendly" competition.
In the final points tally, VR-58 athletes took first place
with 1,325 points, followed by NAS Jax (1225 points) and
Commander Navy Region Southeast (950 points).
Sailors from seven commands battled it out over the
two-day event to see who would take home the NAS Jax
Sports Challenge Captain's Trophy.
"It's a great opportunity for all the commands to get
together and compete, it's all about camaraderie and hav-
ing a good time together. It's nice to win, but at the end of
the day it comes down to people just having a lot of fun,"
said NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
"We hold this event twice a year to bring our commands
together for some healthy competition that gets people out
of their workspaces," explained NAS Jax Fitness Director
Tim McKinney. "We try to do events that are out of the
ordinary, such as kickball and wiffle ball which seemed
to be big hits. We also encourage females to participate.
In fact, a lot of events require that there be at least one
female on the court at all times. We want to get everyone
involved in the good fun two-day event with lots of close
competition."
"Each time we hold a sports challenge we get great par-
ticipation," said NAS Jax Sports Coordinator Bill Bonser.
"People are excited to come out and cheer for one another.
We try to change it up a little bit to make it more difficult
and give every command a chance to win. We usually
crown a different winner each time because the competi-
tion is so intense," Bonser added.
The competition kicked off Thursday with a 1,500-meter
relay at the base track, followed by the tricycle race,
dodgeball, wiffleball and kickball. Friday events included
3-on-3 beach volleyball, badminton, washers, tug of war
and the CO canoe race.

CFC fund drive now underway


By Staff
The 2009 Combined
Federal Campaign
(CFC) for NAS
Jacksonville, tenant com-
mands and departments
officially kicked off Sept.
29 at the Bachelor Officers'
Quarters Pavilion.
The annual event pro-
vides qualifying agencies
the opportunity to receive
monetary contributions
from government employ-
ees.
Listed within the CFC
program guide are short
descriptions of each, includ-


ing the percentage of
donated funds that go to
cover administration costs.
This enables contributors
to discern between chari-
ties based on their personal
preferences and priorities.
"This is my third year
and it's the best crowd that
I have seen," said John
Smith, regional director
for the Combined Federal
Campaign. He also men-
tioned that NAS Jax is by
far the strongest division in
the region with the largest
number of personnel.
Guest speaker Doneese


Academic and Housing coordinator Karen Hicks of Clara
White Mission, explains how their mission works to reduce
homeless in our community to NC1 Alisha Clifton of HS-15 at
the Combined Federal Campaign Kickoff.


Kemp, a civilian employ-
ee from Cecil Commerce
Center, told the audience
how nonprofit community
organizations helped when
her now-deceased husband
was battling a blood condi-
tion and heart disease.
"We need your help and
you can make a difference,"
said Kemp. "Every dol-
lar you contribute to CFC
stays here in our commu-
nity to help those in need."
"I know the economy is
down right now, but I also
know that we're the lucky
ones," added NAS Jax
Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr. "We are
the ones that get to come
to work every day because
we are the ones that have
jobs. We're not the ones
being laid off. The economy
is hurting but we are fortu-
nate and what we can do to
give back to those less for-
tunate is really important."
Last year, hundreds of
local agencies benefited
from the drive, enabling
them to provide critical
services within the sur-
rounding communities
of Northeast Florida and
Southeast Georgia.

explained West."Right now,
our American way of life
is being defended half a

He ended with the anon-

they're worthless, but
because they're priceless."

months in Iraq.
"Naturally, an ombuds-
man is busiest prior to
and during deployments.
When the squadron is
home, things quiet down,
yet I stay in touch with the
squadron leadership to lend
assistance wherever I can,"
said Brown. "Email makes
a world of difference and
is my primary communica-
tions pipeline to our fami-
lies."
Brown also writes a
monthly e-newsletter with
information about the
squadron and NAS Jax, as
well as hurricane prepared-
ness, back-to-school tips
and healthcare concerns
such as flu vaccinations.

Five dumb things...


By Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top
Special Contributor

Here are five dumb
things that married
people commonly
say to each other when they
are arguing.
"You've changed.
You're not the same per-
son I married."
Of course he or she has
changed. So have you.
So have your family and
friends. So has the nation,
your career, and what is
on television. The point is
that change is a part of life.
Your love should not depend
on life remaining as it was
when you first got married.
The truth is that you
probably didn't know your
spouse when you were
engaged as well as you
thought you did. Now you
are facing the reality of
life. Stress from work, chil-
dren, in-laws, finances, etc.
can bring out sides of your
spouse and yourself that
you never saw in the dating
environment.
Your relationship may
even be influenced by men-
tal illness, health problems,
or grief related changes.
To make your relationship
work you must be flexible
and accept change.
You must be able to love
your spouse for who they
are, not for who you thought
they were or who you
expected them to become.
If you cannot love what
your spouse has become,
that may say more about
you than it does about your
spouse.
"This isn't how love/
marriage is supposed to
be."
What makes you sure
you know how it is "sup-
posed to be?" Most people
develop their idea of how
marriage should be from
two things: their parents,
and Hollywood. Neither of
those are the best examples


CHAPLAIN'S

CORNER


Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top

for you. You may learn a lot
of good things about mar-
riage from your parents, but
remember that you don't see
the whole picture.
Early in their marriage
things were probably much
more difficult for them than
they are now. Besides,
your marriage faces chal-
lenges in a changing society
that they never did. As for
learning from Hollywood,
I shouldn't even have to
explain the problem with
that. Hollywood is not
exactly famous for its happy
marriages.
So how is marriage sup-
posed to be? Hard. You
were told that when you got
married. You just didn't
think about it then because
you were so "in love." If
you are having difficulties
in your relationship, then
things are normal.
It is what you do with
those difficulties that will
determine the future of
your relationship. If things
aren't hard, great! Just
don't freak out if it happens.
Remember, just because it
is hard doesn't mean it isn't
worth it. If it didn't require
sacrifice and effort then it
wouldn't really be love,
would it?
The love and happiness
that comes from working
through difficulties is much
more rewarding than the
kind portrayed in the mov-


ies.
"You always ..." or "You
never..."
This is a great phrase to
use if you enjoy arguing
with a brick wall. The sec-
ond you use absolute lan-
guage like this your spouse
will stop listening to you.
If you say, "You never
show appreciation," your
spouse will immediately
begin thinking of all the
times he or she did. When
you use this kind of extreme
language you know that
your emotions are taking
the argument away from
where it needs to go.
Instead, acknowledge his
or her efforts and progress,
and then explain your feel-
ings. For example, "I love it
when you thank me for mak-
ing dinner. It makes me feel
appreciated and shows that
you notice what I am doing
for our family. It hurts my
feelings when you don't
seem to notice my efforts."
"Maybe we should just
end it."
Don't say the "D" word
(divorce). Don't even imply
it. Sometimes when couples
are really frustrated and
feel that their spouse is not
getting it, they use this as
a weapon to show that they
mean business.
Often when it is initially
used there is no real inten-
tion of actually ending it. It
is first used for shock value.
What they really want to
say is "Hey, I am unhappy
and it doesn't seem like you
care!"
Once you cross this line,
things can spiral out of con-
trol. After awhile throwing
the "D" word around doesn't
have the same effect it ini-
tially did so you may actu-
ally talk to a lawyer or get
the paper work.
Eventually couples may
find themselves divorced
before they were ever real-
ly committed to it. Studies
show that most people

response to outside events,
otherwise everyone would
react to events the same.
For example, in a sport-
ing event, when one team
scores, not every one watch-
ing will have the same emo-
tional reaction to it. It is
your perception of the event
that determines the emo-
tional reaction. So if you
want to change your reac-
tion, change the way you
think about the event.
When your spouse does
something that drives you
nuts, often it is your fault
that it is driving you nuts.
Happy will be the day when
you learn how control your
thinking and take some con-
trol over your emotions.
Some things that bother
you in marriage you must
learn to live with by chang-
ing your thinking about


them.
Other times, when you
need to discuss it with your
spouse, own your feelings
by saying something like,
"I feel ______when you
____, because I think
." For example, "I
feel hurt when you spend
hours on the computer
because I think that you
don't want to spend time
with me."
Disclaimer: I am not tell-
ing you that you should let
your spouse abuse, exploit,
or manipulate you. I am
telling you to pick your bat-
tles wisely.
Obviously there are lim-
its to what you should put
up with. If you aren't sure
whether things in your rela-
tionship have crossed those
limits, seek advice from peo-
ple you trust and respect.

people deny or don't recognize signs of pos-

Alexander.

NAS Jax Deputy PAO

NAS Jacksonville celebrated Hispanic Heritage
Month during a special luncheon Sept. 30. The
event was held at the NAS Jax Officers' Club and
was sponsored by the base Multi-Cultural Awareness
Committee. This year's theme is "Embracing the Fierce
Urgency of Now."
The event featured a short dance program by the
Colombian Folklore Dance Group and the guests were
then treated to a Latin-style buffet that included a variety
of traditional dishes from various Hispanic countries.
NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr. kicked off the event with some open-
ing remarks. "First, I'd like to thank the Multi-Cultural
Awareness Committee for making this event a reality.
In 1968, Congress authorized the president to issue an


annual proclamation designating the week of Sept. 15 or
16 as National Hispanic Heritage Week. In 1988, it was
expanded to a month-long celebration," said Scorby.
"During this month, we celebrate the significant
contributions of Hispanic Americans in the defense of
our nation. If you take a look at our history, Hispanic
Americans have played a pivotal role in our nation's
defense, especially on the battlefield. During the civil war,
almost 10,000 Mexican Americans served in the Army or
volunteer units," continued Scorby. "Probably the most
famous Hispanic American was Adm. David Farragut who
in 1862, led union forces to victory during the Battle of
Mobile Bay. He will always be remembered for his famous
quote, 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!"'
"Hispanic Americans have also played significant
roles during World War I and II, Vietnam and Desert
Storm. Today, as we all know, we are war once again and

Mayo Clinic talks with HM2 Jerry Horton of Naval Hospital
Jax during a meet and greet event before the annual Hispanic
Heritage Month Observance at the NAS Jax Officers' Club
Sept. 30. Perez was the guest speaker for the event.


Hispanics are at the front lines fighting the war on ter-
ror," Scorby stated. "Today, we have 63,000 active duty
Hispanic Sailors, 9,100 Hispanic civilian Navy employees
and 6,100 Hispanic Reserve Sailors," said Scorby.
"As the Navy moves forward with our diversity strat-
egy, our ability to assess, train and to employ different
talents and experiences is critical to mission success. The
Hispanic American community is vital to that success," he
concluded.
The guest speaker for this year's event was Dr. Edith
Perez, a cancer specialist and internationally known
researcher at Mayo Clinic. She is also a professor of
medicine at Mayo Medical School and director of the Mayo
Clinic's Breast Program.

HISPANIC LUNCH: Celebrating diversity

to be here because of what I do and
because of what you do. I've been involved
in medicine now for many years. I am from
Puerto Rico and was fortunate my par-
ents provided me tremendous support as
I developed as a human being and in my
career," said Perez.
"My roles at the Mayo Clinic are quite
varied. I'm involved in a variety of pro-
grams that involve excellence in critical
care and educating others relating to the
best standards of care," she continued.
"I am committed to the importance of
research to understand why breast can-
cer occurs and to try to figure out ways
to decrease the risk in people developing
breast cancer and determine better ways
to detect it and provide treatment for those
who have it. And, I can do that because I'm
fortunate to be working with an incredible
team of people at the Mayo Clinic."
"Each one of you is here because you
choose to be here. You work at a facil-
ity that has a bigger call than you as indi-
viduals; you are part of the team that
helps others. So there are a lot of parallels
between what you do here and what I do
at Mayo. We work to benefit many others,"
expressed Perez.
"People ask me almost every day when
are we going to cure breast cancer. I can
tell you without a doubt, that women and
men diagnosed with breast cancer are
being cured. The challenge for us is that
we wish for more people to be cured. If


someone develops breast cancer, we would
like to find it as early as possible and for
it to go away," she added. "Although it
remains a very serious issue worldwide,
things are getting better because people
are becoming more aware and developing
strategies to continue improving the care
of those with this disease."
"Breast cancer can also occur in men but
it's much lower than in women. Both men
and women need to vigilant with their
bodies and get proper medical attention if
there are experiencing any abnormalities,"
said Perez. "It's important to remember
there is survivorship after being diagnosed
with breast cancer. Our goal is for people's
lives to be preserved and for them to get
back to normal."
"And, part of working together to fight
this disease means getting involved in
the community. October is Breast Cancer
Awareness Month and there are many
activities planned so get out and partici-
pate," she stressed.
"In my day-to-day activities, my goals
are probably much like yours. Our ulti-
mate goals are to take care of ourselves,
take care of others, get involved in common
goals and be proud of our abilities," she
concluded.
After her speech, Perez held a short
question and answer session. Many of the
questions related to her work with breast
cancer patients and the strides that have
been made to combat this disease.

Navy Fuel Depot runs



Triennial PREP Drill
By Daphne Cassani age ditch and
FISCJaconville Corporate eventually
Communications Director .. .


The Defense Fuel
Support Point
Jacksonville (Navy
Fuel Depot), operated by
the Fleet and Industrial
Supply Center (FISC)
Jacksonville, recently par-
ticipated in a triennial
Preparedness Response
Exercise Program (PREP)
drill. This exercise is
a worst-case scenario,
involving a natural disas-
ter, to test the reaction of
the multi-agency facility
response and spill manage-
ment team.
The Drill Scenario At
8:45 a.m., one hour before
low tide, it was 78 degrees
and raining at the fuel
depot near Dames Point.
With the temperature ris-
ing and winds gusting out
of the south, the sky was
ominously dark when the
National Weather Service
issued a tornado warning.
Suddenly, a tornado
appeared over the south
bank of the St. Johns River.
It traveled north toward
the fuel depot and directly
impacted Fuel Tank 7 caus-
ing the horizontal shell
welds to catastrophically
fail. The three-million-gal-
lon tank was full of JP-5 jet
fuel at the time of impact.
The tank's collapse
released its entire con-
tents into the surrounding
catch basin. Once the basin
reached capacity, the JP-5
breached the basin berm (a
concrete dike for spill con-
tainment). Approximately
250,000 gallons of JP-5 was
released into the environ-
ment. The release traveled
south in an adjacent drain-


flowed into
the St. Johns
River.
T h e
Response -
As the fuel
tank alarm
sounded, the

tain and/or

clean up the
spill. Within five minutes
of notification, the team
deployed a front-end loader/
backhoe tractor and a vacu-
um truck to the scene. The
tractor is used to move any
earth possible to build bar-
riers and contain the spill.
The vacuum truck suctions
up large quantities of liq-
uid, in this case fuel.
Meanwhile, back at the
command center, Fuel
Depot General Engineer
Wayne Wragg began mak-
ing required notifications
to local, state and federal
authorities.
At 9 a.m. 15 minutes
after the twister destroyed
Tank 7 the operations
team had launched two
SeaArk spill-containment
boats. A few minutes
later, a fire engine from
Jacksonville Fire Station
Number 37 arrived to sup-
port the drill.
On the river, the spill-
containment boat crews
immediately deployed
their containment booms.
Two scenarios were run.
The first was a horseshoe-
shaped boom designed to
surround and capture
spilled fuel. The second


scenario was a deflection
boom set-up that diverts
a spill away from environ-
mentally sensitive areas
on the St. Johns, such as
manatee zones. This was
no easy task, as 500 feet of
boom was deployed for each
scenario. River conditions
added more difficulty as the
wind and tide moved the
boats and boom.
Boat crews fought the
river spill for just over an
hour, while the remainder
of the response team per-
formed mopping-up duties
on shore. At 10:25 a.m.,
the drill concluded.
The Outcome -
According to Wragg, there
were many high points to
the drill. He's participated
in PREP drills for many
years, said, "Overall, it
went very well. Everybody
knew their jobs and nobody
got hurt."

"This was by far the
best boom deployment
we have ever had," said
Tom McGarry, director

Jacksonville.
During the out-brief,
areas were identified for
improvement. "Drills are
evaluation and learning
opportunities. We do these
exercises to understand the
real-life challenges of pro-

Crenshaw to recognize Vietnam-era veterans


From staff


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
13.
"Vietnam veterans served our country
with distinction during one of our most
tumultuous times as a nation," said
Crenshaw.
"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 -
April 1975.
Armed Forces members who qualified


for the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal
by service in Vietnam between July 1,
1958 and July 3, 1965 will also be recog-
nized. Foreign Service Officers with the
U.S. Diplomatic Corps members serving in
Southeast Asia during the periods above
are also eligible for special recognition.
If you are a Vietnam-era veteran, live in
the 4th Congressional District, and would
like to participate, contact Crenshaw's dis-
trict offices in Jacksonville (904-598-0481)
or Lake City (386-365-3316) or call toll free
888.755-5607 if you live in the 850 area
code.
You may also go to www.Crenshaw.
house.gov to obtain an application. Click
on Constituent Services, then Special
Events & Notices, and then on the Vietnam
Veterans Recognition Ceremony to down-
load the press release and application.
Completed applications and documenta-
tion should be mailed to: 1061 Riverside
Ave., Suite 100, Jacksonville, FL 32204.
The application deadline is October 13.
To determine eligibility for the certifi-
cate, veterans must complete an applica-
tion and submit a copy of their service dis-
charge document or proof of service in the
Diplomatic Corps or Merchant Marines.
Veterans must be alive and a current
resident of the 4th Congressional District
of Florida to participate in this program.


Get on board with
From Commander, Navy Installations
Command

For more than two years, the
Navy's Operation Prepare cam-
paign has been encouraging Navy
personnel and families to prepare for
recognized hazards by taking three sim-
ple steps: Be informed. Have a plan.
Make a kit.
If you've been dragging your feet,
now's the time to "get on board." Before
an emergency strikes, make sure you
and your family know what to do to
stay safe, stay in touch, and recover. It
doesn't take much time or money, and
the resources are readily available.
The Operation Prepare information
on the CNIC Web site (www,cnic.navy.
mil) is a great place to start. It has infor-
mation on natural and manmade haz-
ards, diseases, etc. to help you sort out
the risks in your area, as well as recom-
mended steps to prepare for and cope
with them. There are tips for making a
family emergency plan, with printable
forms and contact cards. There's even a
checklist for gathering supplies for emer-
gency kits.
The Operations Prepare "Resources"
page has links to various Navy sites that
provide answers, support, services, and
contacts for Sailors and their families.
The page even lists other links to sources
that also provide emergency planning
information, as well as opportunities to
get involved in community preparedness.
Below are a few examples:
Ready.gov (www.ready.gov) and
FEMA's "Plan Ahead" Web site (www.
fema.gov/plan) feature information on
a wide range of disasters, guidance for
protecting your family and property, and
downloadable publications and check-
lists.


Operation Prepare
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC, at (www.cdc.gov)
has information on diseases, bio-
logical agents, and other threats, and
PandemicFlu.gov/AvianFlu.gov (www.
pandemicflu.gov has the most current
information on pandemic and "bird" flu.
The American Red Cross (www.red-
cross.org) offers not only preparedness
information and training, but ways to
get assistance and to get involved in
disaster response.
It's important to get on board the read-
iness effort for your children as well.
Involve them in thinking through the
planning for various emergency scenari-
os, if they are old enough, and make sure
they have current emergency contact
cards.
Practice or play out your evacuation
plans-let confidence and competence
replace fear and dependence. They can
learn and have fun as they help you
gather items for the family emergency
kits, know where it is located and how
to access it, if necessary.
If you and your family are lucky
enough never to have faced a real emer-
gency, count your blessings, but don't
find yourself wishing you had done the
smart thing when your luck runs out.
Get on board with Operation Prepare,
and fulfill your duty to get yourself and
your loved ones ready.
Your family emergency plan and emer-
gency preparedness kit are the corner-
stones of Operation Prepare. For more

Bronze Star: Pilot honored for service

tion (MWR) tents where
troops could relax and play
ping pong or watch movies
and see the occasional con-
cert hosted by the USO.
He appreciated the
efforts of a volunteer group
in his parent's home town
of Payson, Arizona, who
supported deployed troops
by sending monthly care
packages to the desert.
"I shared them with
the Brigade staff, which
made me very popular," he
recalled.
Conover came home in
November 2008 halfway
through his tour for a two-
week break with wife Becki
and their four young chil-
dren. "It was pretty tough,"
he said. "I feel like I lost
2008, everything from the
school year, holidays, birth-
days and our wedding anni-
versary. Life is kind of
gapped."
Nevertheless, many
Sailors returning from IA
tours say they feel a great-
er sense of accomplishment
thanks to their work over-
seas. Conover is no excep-
tion. He said, "Bottom line,
we were saving lives. You
could see it in the numbers.
We were preventing casual-
ties from IEDs."
FRCSE Commanding
Officer Paul Sohl, who had
never before had the honor
of pinning a Bronze Star,
was privileged to present
the medal to his friend and
fellow F/A-18 Hornet pilot.
He said, "Mitch did his
job in order for our soldiers
and Marines to do theirs.
It was a personal sacrifice
on his part and a sacrifice
on his family's part."
The pinning ceremony
took place in the FRCSE
F/A-18 Hornet hangar as
Conover's family, friends
and co-workers looked on.
Conover credits his success-
ful tour to the support of
his family.

Dressed in full combat gear
while on a mission to estab-
lish parameters in the oil
fields near Kirkuk, Iraq, Lt.
Cmdr. Mitch Conover dis-
covers what Iraqis call the
Eternal Flame, an area where
underground gas rises to the
surface and continuously
burns.

IA Sailors and their fami-
lies are an integral part of
the Navy and mission suc-
cess in overseas contingen-
cy operations. Conover's
wife, Becki, said, "I'm glad
it's over. It was a tough
road, but we made it. He
never shares much of what
he did over there, but I'm
very proud of him."
AMCS(AW) Christopher
Leech was among the
crowd to witness Conover
receive the prestigious
medal. It was a first for
Leech to see a Bronze Star
awarded. "I think everyone
who goes over there should
be recognized in some way,"
he said.
Leech is the command's
senior enlisted advisor
and serves as the FRCSE
Command IA coordinator.
He is responsible for track-
ing and communicating
with deployed IAs.
"E-mail is a wonderful
thing," he said. "Everybody


we send over to the desert,
Africa, wherever, they need
to know we are taking care
of them."
During his IA tour,
Conover, a junior com-
mander, negotiated orders
to FRCSE as the F/A-18
product officer. It afforded
him the opportunity to fly
again and also experience
the production side of avia-
tion.
"This is my first produc-
tion tour and it is really
broadening my horizons,"
he said.
His experiences at the
Program Manager Office,
with a Test and Evaluation
Squadron and now in pro-
duction are expanding his
professional insight and
opening up new opportuni-
ties. "You miss the boat if
you don't get that experi-
ence early enough in your
career," he said.
Thanks to the dedicat-
ed service of Conover and
other IAs who are diligently
serving in overseas contin-
gency operations missions,
the Navy is expanding its
contributions to the joint
force around the globe.
Conover's actions as
described in his com-
mendation contributed
"immeasurably to the suc-
cess of building a free and
democratic nation for the
citizens of Iraq and to the
efforts to win the global
war on terrorism."
The Bronze Star Medal
is awarded to military
members who distinguish
themselves by heroic acts
or meritorious service
while engaged in an action
against an enemy of the
United States.
As of Sept. 11, about 47
percent of Navy person-
nel serving on the ground
in Iraq and Afghanistan
are IAs. Since 2002, 2,124
IA Sailors serving around
the globe have earned the
Bronze Star.

Parishioners of All

Chapel and St.
Edward's Catholic Chapel
joined with chaplains
and staff Oct. 3 to cel-
ebrate the recent $1.1
million renovation of the
NAS Jacksonville Chapel
Center, as well as the dedi-

office.
NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr. remind-
ed the inspired audience
that, "This base exists for
one reason only and that's
to support the fleet, the
fighter and the family. Our
chaplain community is one
of the few organizations
that touch every part of
that triad."
"That's why it's my plea-
sure to join with you today
to celebrate this revitalized
center of spirituality under
the leadership of NAS
Jacksonville Command
Chaplain (Cmdr.) Gerald
Felder. We also welcome
the opening of the new

Within the Spiritual

CREDO Southeast affirms
that each service member,

creation of God with value
and significance. It spon-
sors a series of free retreats
that enable participants to

lives.
"CREDO Southeast sup-
port of our fighters and
families is critical to readi-

retreats are designed to
enhance personal growth,
marriage enrichment, fam-
ily enrichment and team
building."
Felder talked about the
scope of the renovations.
"The chapel center was

completed in August. It
included multimedia projec-

with worship services,"
explained Felder.
"The stained glass win-

Felder also expressed
appreciation for Capt.
Scorby's additional funding
of improvements in the fel-
lowship hall. "The skipper's
enthusiastic support has
been crucial to our chapel
improvements."


"I must also Bravo-Zulu
our exceptional RP staff.
They do an outstanding
job ensuring that our cha-

that special events are

VP-30 recognizes new NFOs


From VP-30

V P-30 Commanding Officer Capt.
Perry Yaw and retired Capt. A.J.
Gallardo awarded naval flight offi-
cer (NFO) wings to 15 officers during a
ceremony Sept. 25 in the VP-30 audito-
rium.
Those receiving their wings were:
Ensigns Brian Allen, Sarah Allen,
Charles Blackwell, Antonio Cabrera,
Joshua Castillo, Jude Glaser, Thomas
Grenzer, Woo Han, Randall Hendricks,
Jill Rockholt, Austin Weiny, Lt. j.g.s
Christopher Lavette, Klaus Lund, Jeff
Sharp and CWO2 Amy Blades.
The recipients completed the
Undergraduate Maritime Flight Officer
syllabus at VP-30, earning their coveted
wings of gold. The newly winged avia-
tors will now enroll in the CAT 1 Fleet
Replacement Squadron syllabus at VP-30.
Upon completion of the CAT 1 syllabus,


they will report to operational patrol
squadrons to begin their initial sea tour
in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, Whidbey Island,
Wash. or remain at NAS Jacksonville.
The NFO training pipeline begins with
aviation preflight introduction (API)
instruction in Pensacola, Fla. where all
aviation officers undergo a classroom syl-
labus and are taught the basics of naval
aviation including courses such as aerody-
namics, meteorology and navigation prin-
ciples.
After completing API, all student NFOs
report for primary training at either VT-10
or VT-4, also at NAS Pensacola. Here
they put their classroom learning to the
test and are given initial airborne flight
training in the T-6A Texan II. Upon com-
pletion of primary flight training at NAS
Pensacola, officers who are selected for the
P-3C training pipeline report to VP-30 for
P-3C specific training.


Quarterly energy vendors


partnership meeting held


By Sue Brink
NAVFAC Southeast Public Affairs
Officer

Naval Facilities
Engineering
Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast
hosted its Quarterly
Energy Partnership
Meeting at NAS
Jacksonville Sept. 23 to
learn about the latest in
eco-friendly and energy
saving technologies.
"President Obama
said there are two ways
to meet federal energy
goals: increase investment
in renewable energy and
reduce dependence on for-
eign oil," said Brad Clark,
NAVFAC Southeast utili-
ties management branch
head. "I believe the federal
government should lead
the nation by example and
the Navy should lead the
federal government."
A diverse collection of


environmentally friend-
ly and energy saving
products and services
were presented by seven
vendors to NAVFAC
Southeast personnel work-
ing in the facilities, engi-
neering and public works
departments throughout
the region.
The products and ser-
vices presented included:
steam traps for increased
boiler efficiency; 'green
solution' for waste water
treatment; improved sup-
ply chain management;
wind turbines for moder-
ate wind conditions; high
performance chemical
fume hoods to improve
safety and reduce energy
consumption; efficient flu-
orescent lighting fixtures
with reduced mainte-
nance; and solar technol-
ogy systems providing a
reduced carbon footprint.
NAVFAC Southeast


works to remain current
on technology advance-
ment in energy conserva-
tion for capital improve-
ment and renovation proj-
ects.
"Our military leaders
- Rear Adm. Alexander,
Capt. Morton and Capt.
Rice fully support
our efforts to engage the
experts in the energy
engineering industry,
especially to those who
have unique products or
services related to renew-
able energy technologies,"
added Clark.
The next NAVFAC
Southeast Quarterly
Energy Partnership
Meeting will be held in
December.
Vendors interested
in presenting at future
events may contact the
program coordinator at
(904) 542-6747.

ing local Sailors and Soldiers missed the "taste of home" ground roast coffee. A USO
duty manager in Kuwait with ties to Jacksonville made the request. The USO staff at NAS
Jacksonville is arranging to ship the coffee to Kuwait and to troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and
other locations in the Middle East and Africa.


SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


Need mot
By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor

H ave you seen the '80s sci-fi com-
edy "Short Circuit" starring Ally
Sheedy and Steve Guttenberg
and the cute robot named Johnny-Five?
Through a chance power surge, Johnny-
Five develops emotions, escapes the lab
and spends the remainder of the movie
seeking "more input" (information). If
you have not seen the movie, rent it this
weekend it is a fun watch for the entire
family.
I feel like Johnny-Five. We have been
'selected for orders' but we don't have
orders in hand. My husband is tentatively
schedule to deploy in five months -but we
have no dates, no details. Will he be gone
six months or 14? I confessed last week
that I am a control freak.
I am also a planner. I try to plan life to
live my best life. I am researching options,
assessing things and I need more info!
These GSA orders don't fit the norm. I
need more input!
So where do I start? My Sailor is busy
researching and so am I. If you are join-
ing my journey to deployment readiness
here is what I have found so far: We could
receive a copy of the orders at any time
but per instruction we must have orders
within 60 days of transfer. While we wait
there is much we can do.
If going to a traditional deploying com-
mand head to the command's Website,
learn all you can about the command with
special attention to the "Welcome aboard"
and family support sections. If you are
like me, with GSA orders, I have a few
Websites for you.
The first place to start is the IA/GSA
command known as the Expeditionary


e input...

Combat Readiness Command (www.ecrc.
navy.mil). This site contains valuable
information for you and your Sailor includ-
ing downloadable handbooks. The next
informational site is Navy Knowledge
Online (https://www.nko.navy.mil). You
can establish you own login on this site
that contains great info. Also browse
the Navy Family Community/Individual
Augmentee Family Support Website for
information.
Records and paperwork is my next action
item. Now is the time to make sure I have
all the passwords to our accounts, check
expiration dates on vehicle decals, IDs,
vehicle registration, Powers of Attorney,
updates on our wills and our 'family emer-
gency plan.' Download one of the many
available readiness checklists for a more
complete list of paperwork to tackle.
There are a few conversations to begin
during this time as well. One topic we may
not talk about is life insurance. Many ser-
vice members assume that SGLI is enough
to provide for their families if, God forbid,
something happens to them. But for many
families, SGLI will not assure family sta-
bility.
Get some advice, and look at what you
really need in terms of life insurance. Sites
like www.usaa.com offer free life insurance
calculators to help you assess your needs.
This will not 'jinx' your upcoming deploy-
ment, but will give both you and your ser-
vice member peace of mind. Our journey
has begun, next week we'll see if we have
orders yet and talk about relocation.

'Red Lancers' prepare to pass the torch


By Lt. Jon Moore
VP-10


As VP-10 closes out its fourth suc-
cessful month of deployment in
Qatar, the "Red Lancers" are pre-
paring to pass the torch to the "Screaming
Eagles" of VP-1, based at NAS Whidbey
Island, Wash. A transition party of eight,
led by VP-1 Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Mark Rudesill, spent Sept. 26 27 shad-
owing the Red Lancers and 'learning the
ropes' of operations in a desert environ-
ment.
During the two-day visit the Lancers
introduced the Eagles to CENTCOM the-
atre operations, daily squadron opera-
tions at Al Udeid Air Base, and associated
working relationships with the Qatari, Air


Force and allied nations.
As Capt. Jim Wyatt, commander, Patrol
and Reconnaissance Wing Central, com-
mented during a recent meeting with the
Red Lancers, "You are the shining example
for everyone out here, but the true mea-
sure of your performance is how well VP-1
performs when they relieve you."
The Red Lancers aim not to disappoint.
In this spirit they have also briefed a
detailed "lessons learned" from their expe-
riences thus far, in order to further aid in a
smooth transition.
"We hope that VP-1 gleaned as much
information as they could," stated VP-10
Operations Officer Lt. Cmdr. Kelly
Hinderer. "We look forward to a good
handshake and a smooth transition in
December."


FLU: Vaccinations help reduce sickness


From Page 1


Key federal, state and
local healthcare agencies
from the CDC to Military
Medicine to local health
Department continue
to coordinate effective
responses to what promises
to be a particularly severe
flu season this year.
"Our hospital and branch
health clinics are key play-
ers in promoting the dan-
gers of influenza and the
importance of people get-
ting vaccinated," said
McQuade. "We are on
track with our vaccination
ooo


plans for both the seasonal
and the novel H1N1 influ-
enza strain."
While H1N1 has every-
one concerned this year, the
seasonal flu is, and always
has been, a significant
cause of widespread illness
and even death. According
to the CDC, every year in
the U.S., on average, 5 to
20 percent of the popula-
tion experience influenza;
more than 200,000 peo-
ple are hospitalized from
influenza complications
and about 36,000 people
die from influenza-related
causes.


H1N1 is the wild card
in this year's flu sea-
son planning. All indica-
tions are that the sever-
ity of the H1N1 virus has
not changed although the
number of cases could spike
higher. Currently, the level
of severity according to the
CDC is low to moderate.
The Southeastern U.S. does
seem to be higher in report-
ed cases than other areas of
the country with cases con-
firmed both in Florida and
Georgia.
Watch your base newspa-
per and approved Web sites
for current information.
