Sea of Sailors welcomes Obama


'I will never rush
the solemn decision
of sending you
into harm's way.'

Jax Air News Staff
After a Monday morn-
ing meeting with his
national security team
on Afghanistan and Pakistan
issues, President Barack Obama
boarded Air Force One for a
flight to NAS Jacksonville where
he addressed more than 3,400
enthusiastic Sailors, Marines,
Department of Defense civilians
and military families. Afterward,
he held a private meeting with
12 local active duty service mem-
bers.
The president was accompanied
on Air Force One by U.S. Sen.
Bill Nelson and U.S. Reps. Ander
Crenshaw and Corrine Brown.
The commander in chief
was welcomed to the base by
Secretary of the Navy Ray
Mabus; Commander, Navy


Region Southeast Rear Adm. Tim
Alexander; NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack
Scorby Jr. and his wife, Chris;
and NAS Jacksonville Command
Master Chief CMDCM(SW/SS)
Jeff Hudson.
At noon, the crowd began flow-
ing through security checkpoints
at the recently opened Hangar
1122 overlooking the St. Johns
River. Navy Band Southeast
entertained the thousands of peo-
ple for more than two hours until
Obama, Mabus, Alexander and
Scorby took the stage to boister-
ous applause.
Selected Sailors from NAS
Jacksonville and NS Mayport,
plus, Marines from Blount Island
Command provided a human
backdrop for the 44th president.
"It is great to be here at one
of America's finest naval air sta-
tions," said Obama as he took the
podium.
Knowing that the war in
Afghanistan is top of mind with
many Americans, Obama stated,
"While I will never hesitate to

SECNAV meets artisans at FRCSE
By Marsha Childs h
FRCSE Public Affairsf I n


Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus toured Fleet
Readiness Center Southeast (FRCSE) at Naval
Air Station Jacksonville Oct. 26 to gain a deeper
understanding of the F/A-18 Hornet strike fighter service
life extension program.
Accompanied by FRCSE Commanding Officer Capt.
Paul Sohl and F/A-18 Product Manager Major Nimock,
Mabus toured the F/A-18 Hornet overhaul line where arti-
sans routinely replace aircraft center barrels, the critical
structure for attaching the wings and the landing gear to
the airframe.
Mabus is very interested in learning how depot-level
maintenance solutions bridge the gap until the F-35 joint
strike fighter, with its cutting-edge technology, is deliv-
ered to the fleet.
He said, "We need to bring the next generation of air-
craft into the fleet but maintain the old."
The FRCSE workforce performs a complete range of
repair and rework operations. Artisans manufacture
replacement parts and logisticians and engineers provide
technical expertise both in-house and in the field.
Sohl explained, "What we do here is vital to the warf-

'Nightdippers' return from AUTEC


By Lt. j.g. Jim McNamee
HS-5 Public Affairs Officer


HS-5 departed NAS Jacksonville
in early October for nine days of
intensive training at the Navy's
Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation
Center (AUTEC) range headquartered on
Andros Island in the Bahamas.
Operating with three SH-60F and
two HH-60H Seahawk helicopters, the
"Nightdippers" embarked on a variety of
training evolutions that honed their skills
in anti-submarine warfare (ASW), anti-
surface warfare (ASUW), and naval special
warfare (NSW).
The Nightdippers wasted no time com-
pleting 10 ASW events within the first
four days, where HS-5 aircrews were able
to track and attack simulated submarines
(N 11-30 sled) on the undersea range.
The AUTEC range facilities provided air-
crews with detailed reconstructions of each
event, making the training very benefi-
cial. Thanks to countless hours invested by
the squadron's aviation ordnancemen and


maintainers, the Nightdippers successfully
dropped four exercise torpedoes and eight
recoverable exercise torpedoes.
HS-5 transitioned from ASW training
to ASUW and NSW to finish out their
AUTEC deployment. They completed eight
captive air training missile and gun exer-
cise events allowing the aircrews employ
Hellfire missiles and GAU 16 machine
guns for close air support, maritime air
support, and combat search and rescue
missions.
The Nightdippers also completed 14
NSW events where they practiced fast
rope employment to deliver troops during
simulated helicopter visit board search
and seizure missions. The "Range Rover,"
AUTEC's torpedo recovery vessel, was
used to simulate a target vessel.
Additionally, Andros Island allowed the
Nightdippers to gain some much needed
rest and relaxation on the beautiful beach-
es. The detachment finished with a cook-
out and the HS-5 softball team defeating
the AUTEC team.

ID cards, decals and POAs oh my!


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor


The journey from shore duty
to deployment readiness is
marked with milestones along
the way selected for orders, orders
in hand, PCS to name a few.
This week I took another step my
wonderful Sailor called to say, "I'm
making our appointment at Pass &
ID. Is 3:20 tomorrow good for you?"
Ugh. Reenlistment means so many
things; new orders, possible PCS,
transition to or from sea duty and
of course, that dreaded, unflatter-
ing new dependent ID card. I know
you know what I am talking about.
No matter what I do to my hair, my
makeup or my clothing selections that
photo will be the most unflattering
shot I've taken in a decade. And I am
stuck with it for three years! Sigh...
A note about ID cards. You will
need to present two forms of ID for
your card. If unaccompanied by your
service member (who should have the
proper paperwork with them) you will
also need DD1172 (service member
must complete this form and fax it to
Pass & ID) and power of attorney.
While we are on the topic of
IDs, let's talk about identity theft.
Approximately six months ago, an
important change was made in depen-
dent ID cards. Our social security


SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


number is now omitted from the card
giving us a measure of security that
was missing before. However, our ser-
vice member's SSN is still printed on
the card. Learning to protect our iden-
tity is important. Please take time to
check out these resources for impor-
tant information and steps to protect
your identity from theft and fraud.
The Federal Trade Commission (www.
ftc. gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft)
and Identity Theft Awareness (www.
identity-theft-awareness.com) both
provide articles, information and best
practices to help protect our identity
or recover from identity theft. Military
One Source (www.militaryonesource.
com) provides free identity theft pack-
ets with valuable information.
So, armed with my new (awful
photo) ID, it is off to obtain new
decals for our vehicles. But before
you go there, here are a few things to
know. If your name is on the vehicle
registration you are good to go. If not
you will need a Power of Attorney
(POA) or other notarized document
that authorizes you to obtain decals
on behalf of your service member in
their absence. You will also need the
current vehicle registration and cur-


rent proof of insurance. Finally, check
with your local Pass & ID office for
any local requirements (such as smog
test certification in California).
A POA is a standard document all
spouses should have at all times but
especially during deployment. A POA
is a legal document that grants you
authority or access to make decisions
or authorize transactions on behalf of
your absent service member.
There are limitations and restric-
tions as well, so it is important to
talk to your base legal office to get
the right information and to devel-
op the right POA for you. To learn
more about POA and other services
available to you at the Navy Legal
Services office join my show (www.
blogtalkradio.com/nht) October 29.
Dependent IDs, Decals (and POAs)
are basic to our ability to access the
many resources and support available
to us on base. Take a moment today
to check the expiration date of your
ID and Decals.
FYI: our orders update no orders
in hand yet.

Options for the



morbidly obese

From TRICARE Management Activity

TRICARE beneficiaries whose weight poses a seri-
ous health risk have surgical alternatives avail-
able to them. For those who medically qualify,
TRICARE covers gastric bypass, gastric stapling and
gastroplasty procedures, including vertical banded gas-
troplasty and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding,
commonly known as Lap-Band surgery.
These procedures are covered for non-active duty ben-
eficiaries who suffer from morbid obesity and meet spe-
cific medical criteria. To medically qualify, he or she
must weigh 100 pounds or more over their ideal weight
for height and bone structure and the excess weight
must be associated with a severe medical condition.
Beneficiaries who weigh more than twice their ideal
weight for height and bone structure are also eligible.
Additionally, TRICARE covers surgery for beneficiaries
who had a previous intestinal bypass or other surgery for
obesity and, because of complications, require a second
surgery. "TRICARE covers procedures that have been
proven safe and effective, and are accepted by the medi-
cal community," said John Kugler, chief medical officer,
TRICARE Management Activity. "For some beneficiaries,
gastric surgery may be the right course of action to pre-
serve their health."
Nonsurgical treatment of obesity, morbid obesity,
dietary control or weight reduction and gastric bubble or
balloon for the treatment of morbid obesity are not cov-
ered by TRICARE.
Bariatric surgery represents a major and permanent
change in the digestive system and beneficiaries are
required to maintain a strict adherence to a specific
dietary regimen, which may interfere with the operational
deployment of active duty service members (ADSM).
Because of this, ADSMs are not allowed to have bariatric
surgery and may be separated from the service if they
choose to have the procedure. If an ADSM has bariatric
surgery without Military Health System authorization,

FIRE PREVENTION DIVISION
REMINDER:


HEY MONEY CHIC!

Hey, MoneyChic!
My fianc6 has two young children from a previ-
ous marriage. When I marry her, will I be able
to claim those children on my tax return if we file
jointly? The biological father is paying child support
each month. She is also receiving alimony will that
change once we are legally wed? I'm trying to be pro-
active about the financial challenges I'll face when I go
from single to married with children. Any tips?
MoneyChic says: You've certainly got good ques-
tions, Sailor. If you decide to file your taxes jointly,
here are some tax points to consider. Alimony is typi-
cally for an average of two years and if the spouse
remarries during that time frame, the payments stop.
However, it really boils down to the legal decision
the judge made during the time of the divorce as to
the exact terms for your fiance. Alimony is included
in the gross income of the recipient (your future wife),
although the divorce agreement may designate the ali-
mony as nontaxable or nondeductible.
Regarding the children, child support is considered
non-taxable income and the custodial parent (the par-
ent the children live with the most) is entitled to claim
the children as exemptions on their taxes. So if the
children are residing with you the majority of the time,
your wife will be able to claim them for tax purposes,
unless it is written differently in the divorce agreement.
Are you paying any out-of-pocket childcare expenses
so their mother can work? If so, these expenses may
also be deducted by the custodial parent.
We've touched upon the tax ramifications of blend-
ing a family together, but also be thinking about your
everyday expenses, too. More bodies will need more
space, so is your current living space big enough to
take in extras? Prepare for your utility bills to rise
and especially your grocery bill. Now is a good time
for you and your fianc6 to sit down as a couple and dis-
cuss both incomes -and your expectations for who will
pay what in the future. Discussing these questions in
advance will prevent discord on down the road. Good
luck and best wishes!

sonal advice of a licensed attorney or financial plan-

345th Combat Support


Hospital welcomed home

By Kaylee LaRocque ,i,
NAS Jax Deputy PAO L' 'lilll


AWelcome Home Warrior Citizen
Ceremony was held for members of
the 345th Combat Support Hospital
(CSH) at NAS Jacksonville Oct. 24 to
honor the unit and recognize its troops who
recently returned home after a year-long
deployment to Iraq.
During their deployment, the 480 mem-
bers of the unit provided medical support
to three hospitals located in Al Sad, Tikrit
and Mosul, Iraq. The unit includes Reserve
soldiers from 41 states.
The guest speaker for the event was
Maj. Gen. Dean Sienko, commander of 3d,
Medical Deployment Support Command.
"It's an honor for me to be here today
with you for this ceremony. This ceremony
is a time for reflection and celebration of
accomplishment," said Sienko as he men-
tioned one Soldier who did not return home
with the unit.
"Maj. John Fryer, a trauma surgeon,
with the 1st Forward Surgical Team under
the 345th CSH did not come home with
you. He was killed in a rocket attack on
Christmas Day 2008. We must never forget
Maj. Fryer's great sacrifice," Sienko stated.
He went on the praise the accomplish-
ments of the unit. "Despite the dangers in
Iraq, you accomplished much. You staffed
three medical treatment facilities, provided
inpatient care for hundreds of patients,
attended to thousands of medical injuries
to our troops and Iraqis, provided outpa-
tient care to tens of thousands of patients
and processed countless laboratory, phar-
macy and radiology requests," said Sienko.
"You provided supreme healthcare to
Americans who have the courage to march
in harms way in defense of our national
interests. Your accomplishments did not go
unrecognized. The Secretary of the Army
has awarded your unit the prestigious
meritorious unit commendation award.
Congratulations for a job exceptionally well
done. I thank you and I thank your fami-
lies for the sacrifices you have made."
During the ceremony, every mem-
ber of the unit was presented an encased
American flag and a unit flag in recogni-
tion of their service.

to Iraq from April 2008 to March 2009.
"It was my job to make sure they were
trained and ready to do their mis-
sion, to get them to Iraq and bring
them home safely. Their mission was
to provide health support to the the-
ater of operations to our American sol-
diers and foreign soldiers," he added.
According the 1P Lt. Michael Anthony,
operations officer of the 345th CSH, being
part of such a significant mission was well
worth the sacrifices. "It was a very impor-
tant deployment because we are fighting
a very significant conflict and our troops
are being injured. With us there, the troops
can do their jobs because they are com-
fortable knowing that the nurses and sur-
geons are there to take care of them in
an instant. It was very important that
we were there, visible and ready to give
world-class healthcare and assure they
are treated the best they can be," he said.
The unit drills at the Armed Forces
Reserve Center at NAS Jax and is com-
prised of Soldiers from all over the country.
The unit was mobilized in 2003.

H helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 70, established Feb. 12 at NAS

"The MH-60R Seahawk, or 'Romeo' as it's called, combines the capabilities of the
SH-60B and SH-60F with sophisticated new cockpit, avionics and mission systems," said
HSM-70 Training Officer Lt. Cmdr. Phillip Parmley. "Our operators and maintainers
are making great strides to being deployment-ready in early 2011."

Unlike traditional helicopter anti-submarine light squadrons that deploy in separate
detachments to smaller ships, HSM squadrons will deploy to an aircraft carrier as part
of the carrier air wing. HSM-70's maiden deployment is scheduled as part of Carrier Air
Wing (CVW) 8 aboard USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) in 2011.

The amphibious assault ship USS Makin Island (LHD 8) sails through the Strait of Magellan as
the ship prepares to enter the Pacific Ocean. Makin Island departed Pascagoula, Miss., July 10
and is circumnavigated South America to its new homeport in San Diego, where it was com-
missioned Oct. 24. Makin Island is the eighth and final Wasp-class amphibious assault ship
-- but the first of the class built with gas turbine engines and an electric drive.


'Green ship'


Makin


Island commissioned


From Surface Forces Public Affairs

USS Makin Island (LHD 8) was for-
mally commissioned in a ceremony
at Naval Air Station North Island
Oct. 24. The ship, which has been dubbed
the "Prius of Navy warships," arrived in
San Diego in mid-September, three years
after her christening.
The ship brought more than 1,000
Sailors and their families to the San Diego
community.
"I am eager for Makin Island to finally
join the fleet," said Vice Adm. D.C. Curtis,
commander, Naval Surface Forces. "The
Sailors of this crew exemplify the best
this nation has to offer. They represent
America's Navy with pride and distinction
and proudly serve as part of a global force
for good."
Makin Island is the final amphibious
assault ship built in the LHD-1 Wasp-class
- but is the first of the class built with
gas turbine engines and electric drive. The
Navy projects that this will save nearly
$250 million in fuel costs over the ship's
lifetime. The development is already pay-
ing off during the ships transit from
Pascagoula, Miss., to San Diego, Makin
Island consumed over 900,000 gallons less
fuel than a steam ship completing the same


transit, saving more than $2 million in fuel
costs.
Other environmentally friendly initia-
tives include the use of an electric plant
to power auxiliaries, meaning no steam
or associated chemicals; and the use of
reverse osmosis water purification systems
that negate the need for chemicals like bro-
mine or chlorine.
"USS Makin Island represents the cen-
terpiece and future of naval expeditionary
warfare and will significantly enhance our
ability to rapidly respond to emergent task-
ing around the world," said Rear Adm. Earl
Gay, commander, Expeditionary Strike
Group 3. "Her commissioning is a water-
shed moment for our Navy-Marine Corps
team, and I am honored to have her in the
fleet."
According to Capt. Bob Kopas, command-
ing officer, the true strength of Makin
Island rests in her crew. "This crew brings
a 'gung ho' attitude of teamwork and deter-
mined enthusiasm to the fleet, in the tradi-
tion of Carlson's Raiders, who originated
the term 'gung ho'," said Kopas. "The dedi-
cation they have shown over the past four
years has brought the ship to life and lays
the foundation for Makin Island to face the
challenges of the next 40-plus years of sup-
porting the needs of our nation and Navy."

Know your Naval Energy Program


From the Navy Office of Information
The Naval Energy Program focuses on
enhancing operational capability. Energy
security means having an adequate, reli-
able and sustainable energy supply sufficient to
meet the demands of the mission. Energy conser-
vation and efficiency enhance our combat capa-
bility to fly or sail, farther and longer. Investing
in alternative sources and protecting our supply
provide resilience against a fragile grid ashore,
insulates from volatile energy prices and ensures
we can accomplish our mission at sea.
Energy security is focused on trans-
forming vulnerabilities associated with
energy supply and demand into a strategic
and operational advantage. Energy secu-
rity involves tactical and shore missions
that have different energy challenges and
opportunities, and therefore require unique
solutions.
By implementing energy efficiency mea-
sures and considering energy when making
decisions, from the individual to program-
level, the Department of the Navy is reduc-
ing energy consumption and serving as a
global role model for environmental stew-
ardship.
Tactical energy security addresses
risks to the warfighter. These include
significant costs associated with volatile
petroleum prices, unstable petroleum sup-
pliers and extensive supply lines on land
and at sea. Lengthy supply lines are vul-
nerable to attacks that can result in loss of
life and mission.
The Navy increases tactical energy secu-


rity by improving overall fuel conserva-
tion efforts, enhancing energy efficiency of
tactical platforms and increasing use and
availability of non-petroleum fuels.
Shore energy security provides pro-
tection from vulnerabilities related to the
commercial electrical grid, which is suscep-
tible to natural disaster, physical or cyber
attack and malfunction.
The Department of the Navy increas-
es shore energy security by lessening our
shore energy consumption through sustain-
able building design and renovation. We
further strengthen our energy security by
enhancing protection of critical infrastruc-
ture and increased use of renewable alter-
natives.
Did you know?
In 2008, the U.S. imported about 65
percent of its oil and petroleum products,
much of it from politically unstable regions.
About 75 percent of all petroleum products
are transported by sea, much of it passing
through vulnerable choke points that naval
forces work to protect.
Department of Defense (DoD) is the
largest government and individual petro-
leum user in the U.S., consuming about
330,000 barrels per day. The Department
of the Navy is the second largest fuel user
in the DoD, consuming about 100,000
barrels per day. The Air Force uses about
200,000, and the Army uses about 30,000.
Seventy-five percent of the Department
of the Navy's energy consumption is tacti-
cal. Twenty-five percent of consumption is
ashore.

to efficiently perform center barrel replacement in addi-
tion to other major repairs, upgrades and modification to
the aging aircraft. These maintenance solutions greatly
extend the service life of the Hornet. But more impor-
tantly, FRCSE is quickly returning these vital assets to
the war effort.
In the Computer Numerically Controlled Machine Shop,
Engineering Technician Randy Meeker explained how
the depot is using reverse engineering to turn measure-
ment data into an electronic format. Technicians use the
data to "grow" composite parts from powder and resin.
Composites are used in the milling process to verify fix-
ture and tooling specifications to safeguard expensive
machinery and reduce waste of expensive raw materials.
While touring the Wing Shop, Mabus met machinist
John Argabrite, a Department of Defense (DoD) civilian
employee who worked alongside troops in Al Asad, Iraq
from June to September 2008 to keep critical aircraft air-
borne. Argabrite received the Secretary of Defense Global
War On Terrorism Medal on Oct. 9 to recognize and honor
his vital contributions in direct support of warfighters
combating terrorism.
Mabus also toured the P-3 Orion aircraft hangar where
Production Officer Cmdr. Greg Buckler explained the
planned maintenance intervals and "Zone 5" fatigue life
maintenance activities for the aircraft.
With his background in manufacturing, Mabus was
impressed with the facility's capabilities and innovative
technologies. He had nothing but praise for the FRCSE
workforce and the important work they are contributing
to the fleet.
Mabus is a native of Ackerman, Miss. As Secretary of
the Navy, he leads the Navy and Marine Corps (almost
900,000 people) and is responsible for an annual budget in
excess of $150 billion.
FRCSE is one of eight Fleet Readiness centers commis-
sioned by the Navy to perform in-depth overhaul, repair,
and modification of aircraft, engines and aeronautical
components. The Center Barrel Replacement Program
earned FRCSE the 2008 Shingo Silver Medallion for oper-
ational excellence.

External Flu Clinic first stop for sick flu patients



Still awaiting vaccines for non-active duty


From Naval Hospital Jax
Public Affairs
Naval Hospital Jax
opened its external
Flu Clinic on Oct.
19. It is located in trailer
facilities adjacent to the
Emergency Room entry on
the back side of the hospi-
tal off Braun Ave.
The Flu Clinic is
designed to serve two func-
tions. The half that is pres-
ently open to hospital bene-
ficiaries is set up to provide
frontline, initial evalua-
tion and triage for patients
exhibiting influenza symp-
toms.
Triaging symptom-
atic flu patients in a Flu
Clinic located outside the
main building reduces risk
of patients with the flu
spreading the virus into the
main facility. Therefore,
it is requested that all
flu patients go directly to
the clinic first for exami-
nations. That would less-


en risk to staff and other
patients, some with com-
promised immune systems.
Patients whose condi-
tion indicates that more
involved care is needed
will be escorted to the
Emergency Room for fur-
ther care.
The other side of the
trailer facilities will be used
for vaccinations once suf-
ficient doses of the vaccines
arrive to administer to our
broader beneficiary popula-
tion.
Some deployable active
duty service members in
activities aboard base have
already been vaccinated
through hospital ShotEx
visits to their commands.
These ShotExs will contin-
ue as more vaccine arrives.
Vaccine supplies remain
limited and we know
patients may be anxious.
Our Central Appointment
line is 542-4677 and is


available for our patients to
call for the information on
the Flu Clinic and on vac-
cine availability updated
daily.
Beneficiaries who are
awaiting the vaccines,
such as family members
and retirees should also
watch for announcements
in Jax Air News, on base
signage and the base mar-
quee as both seasonal and
H1N1 (swine flue) vaccines
become available.
Hours for the sick patient
side of the Flu Clinic are:
10 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven
days a week, closed on holi-
days.
TRICARE beneficiaries
may also check out the CVS
Pharmacy MinuteClinics
for vaccines or other net-
work providers. Referrals
from your TRICARE autho-
rized primary care provider
is not required this year as
TRICARE and the DoD are


streamlining procedures in
order to make getting vacci-


nated easier. Beneficiaries
must use a network pro-


7* ''


I Il


vider for TRICARE to cover
the immunizations.


The hospital's external Flu
Clinic is located behind
the NH Jax main facility
off Braun Avenue, adjacent
to the Emergency Room
Entrance area. Patients exhib-
iting flu symptoms should
go to this facility rather than
entering the main building.
This is to minimize spread
of the flu to staff and other
patients throughout the hos-
pital. Signage with arrows
pointing the way is visible as
you approach the Emergency
Room.


October is National Disability


Employment Awareness Month
By Rene' Goree


NAS Jacksonville Multi-Cultural Committee

In October 1990, President George
H.W. Bush signed into law the
Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA), guaranteeing equal opportuni-
ty for people with disabilities in public
accommodations, commercial facilities,
employment, transportation, state and
local government services and telecommu-
nications. The goal of the ADA is to pro-
vide enforceable standards and eliminate
discrimination against disabled persons.
Despite progress made since 1990, peo-
ple with disabilities still experience unem-
ployment at a rate far above the national
average.
Are you protected by the ADA?
If you have a disability and are qualified
to do a job, the ADA protects you from job
discrimination on the basis of your disabil-
ity. Under the ADA, you have a disability
if you have a physical or mental impair-
ment that substantially limits a major life
activity. The ADA also protects you if you
have a history of such a disability, or if an
employer believes that you have such a
disability, even if you don't.
To be protected under the ADA, you must
have a record of, or be regarded as having
a substantial impairment that significant-
ly limits or restricts a major life activity
such as hearing, seeing, speaking, walking,
breathing, performing manual tasks, car-
ing for oneself, learning or working.
If you have a disability, you must also be
qualified to perform the essential functions
or duties of a job, with or without reason-
able accommodation, in order to be pro-
tected from job discrimination by the ADA.


Disability facts
51.2 million people have some level of
disability. They represent 18 percent of the
population. Of all people with disabilities, 32.5
million, or 12 percent of the total population,
had a severe disability.
11 percent of children (about four million)
ages 6 to14 have a disability.
72 percent of people 80 and older live with
disabilities, the highest of any age group.
20 percent of females have a disability,
compared with 17 percent of males.
11.8 million 16- to 64-year-olds reported a
medical condition that makes it difficult to find
a job or remain employed. They comprise six
percent of the population this age.
44 percent of people with non-severe
disabilities work full time, year-round. This
compares to 13 percent with a severe
disability.
2.6 million veterans received compensation
for service-connected disabilities as of 2005.

This means two things. First, you must
satisfy the employer's requirements for
the job, such as education, employment
experience, skills or licenses. Second, you
must be able to perform the essential func-
tions of the job with or without reasonable
accommodation. Essential functions are
the fundamental job duties that you must
be able to perform on your own or with the
help of a reasonable accommodation. An
employer cannot refuse to hire you because
your disability prevents you from perform-
ing duties that are not essential to the job.

Overweight and looking for help!
By Capt. Joe McQuade, MD
NH Jax Director for Public Health -... I -. -


Q question: I am seriously over-
weight. Does this mean I am at
risk for developing diabetes and
other life-threatening condi-
tions?
Dr. Joe says: Yes, obesity is
a prime indicator increasing
the incidence of Type 2 diabetes
as well as cardiovascular dis-
ease, high levels of cholesterol
and triglycerides, hypertension
and stroke.
"It is estimated that for
every one-kilogram (2.2
pounds) increase in weight, Capt. oe
the prevalence of diabetes
increases by nine percent," according to
Patrick Sullivan, PhD, at the University
of Colorado Health Sciences Center in
Denver.
Question: Every time I lose weight I
am unable to keep it off. What is the best
way for me to achieve my goal of long-term
weight loss?
Dr. Joe says: By tracking the habits
of people who lose weight and keep it off,
researchers have found these common
denominators in weight-loss success sto-
ries:
Consume about 1,400 calories per day
of which less than 24 percent comes from
fat.
Make major changes in the way you
think about food and daily activities.
Change both eating and exercise habits
to maintain weight loss.
Exercise for at least one hour a day.
Walking is the most frequently reported
exercise that seems to help.
Rather than seeing yourself as a "diet-


IE
N[


RSK UR. JOE


er," think about a "lifestyle change."
Weigh yourself regularly, but don't be
upset by small changes on the
dial. Don't panic about one or
two pounds of weight gain. Deal
with it through better nutrition
and exercise adjustments.
Question: I want to start a
workout program, but I do not
know where to begin. Any sug-
gestions?
Dr. Joe says: First off, if you
Quade, are way out of shape you should
icQuade, first consult with your primary
D
care physician. When you are
cleared for exercise, the American College
of Sports Medicine as well as the American
Heart Association recommends the follow-
ing:
Do moderately intense cardio exercise
30 minutes a day, five days a week, or
Do vigorously intense cardio exercise
20 minutes a day, three days a week, and
Do eight to 10 strength-training exer-
cises, eight to 12 repetitions of each exer-
cise two days a week.
Moderate-intensity physical activ-
ity means working hard enough to raise
your heart rate and break a sweat, yet
still being able to carry on a conversation.
It should be noted that to actually lose
weight or maintain weight loss, 60 to 90
minutes of physical activity may be neces-
sary daily.
The 30-minute recommendation is for
the average healthy adult to maintain
health and reduce the risk for chronic dis-
ease. These guidelines have been suggest-
ed for healthy adults under the age of 65.


OBESITY: TRICARE urges healthy diet, exercise before surgery


From Page 2


that is, by using other health insurance
carried by a spouse he or she is perma-
nently non-deployable and may be consid-
ered for separation.
Before gastric bypass or Lap-Band pro-
cedures are considered, TRICARE encour-
ages beneficiaries to use healthy diets
and exercise to prevent obesity. Military
personnel, retirees and their families can
use the tools provided by TRICARE at
the Healthy Living Web site at including
dietary advice columns, recipes and infor-
mation on making healthy food choices.
The Department of Agriculture


"MyPyramid" tool at http://www.mypyra-
mid.gov can help in creating personalized
meal and physical activity plans.
Physical activity is important for physi-
cal health and weight management.
Exercise reduces the risk of cardiovascular
disease, diabetes and other diseases.
Consistent physical activity is helpful in
weight loss and helps prevent regaining
the weight.
The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention recommends 30 minutes of
daily physical activity for adults and 60
minutes for children. Everyday activi-
ties provide opportunities for being more
active.

S Jalloween Fire Safety Tips


)) Buy only costumes, wigs and props labeled flame-resistant
or flame-retardant. If you are making your own costume,
choose material that won't easily ignite if it comes in
contact with heat or flame. Stay away from billowing or
long trailing fabric. If your child is wearing a mask, make
sure the eye holes are large enough so they can see out.
I)) Provide children with lightweight flashlights to carry for
lighting or as part of their costume.
)i Dried flowers, cornstalks and crepe paper are highly
flammable. Keep these and other decorations well away
from all open flames and heat sources, including light
bulbs, and heaters.
3D It is safest to use a flashlight or battery-operated candle
in a jack-o-lantern. If you use a real candle, use extreme
caution. Make sure children are watched at all times when
candles are lit. When lighting candles inside jack-o-lanterns,
use long, fireplace-style matches or a utility lighter. Be sure
to place lit pumpkins well away from anything that can burn
and far enough out of way of tnrick-or-treaters, doorsteps,
walkways and yards.
3i Remember to keep exits clear of decorations, so nothing
blocks escape routes.
))) Tell children to stay away from open flames. Be sure they
know how to stop, drop and roll if their clothing catches
fire (Have them practice, stopping immediately, dropping
to the ground, covering their face with hands, and rolling
over and over to put the flames out.)
, Your Source for SAFETY Infornation
NFP1 NFPA Pbib Eduao Dvson 1 B- -h Pa, kQ.,x, MA 02169


Use flashlights as alternatives
to candles or torch lights when
decorating walkways and yards.
They are much safer for trck-or-
treaters, whose costumes may
brush against the lighting.
If your children are going to

Sailors save with




Military Star card


By Kristine Sturkie
NEXCOM PAO


Like other retailers, your Navy
Exchange (NEX) must pay a fee
every time a customer uses a credit
card or debit card to pay for merchandise.
On average, banks charge nearly two per-
cent of the transaction total when the
credit or debit card is used. For the NEX,
that amounted to $30.5 million in credit
card fees paid in FY 2008.
"When our customers use a bank-issued
credit or debit card, while it is conve-
nient, it is a cost to our bottom line," said
Tom McDonald, Navy Exchange Service
Command (NEXCOM) vice president and
treasurer. "NEXs give 70 percent of profits
to Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR)
for quality of life programs. So, any
impact to our profits has a direct impact on
our contributions to MWR."
NEX shoppers who use the Military
Star@ Card in place of a commercial credit
or debit card help lower NEXCOM's oper-
ating expenses. Lower operating expenses
allow NEXs to provide customers more
savings while taking advantage of the
many benefits of the Military Star@ Card.
"Using the Military Star Card offers
many benefits to our customers that other
credit cards don't have," said McDonald.
"So, using the Military Star Card for pur-
chases helps not only the NEX and MWR,
it helps our customers."
Among the Military Star@ Card's many


benefits are 10 percent off the first day's
purchases (up to the customer's credit
limit), no annual fee, low interest rate and
24-hour customer service including online
access.
The Military Star Card also has a
reduced interest rate program for qual-
ifying military personnel. The program
waives the monthly payments for account
holders for the duration of an assignment
over 90 days to a contingency area and
interest rate charges are reduced under
two options. Eligible Military Star
cardholders will automatically receive a
reduced interest rate of six percent. The
second option, which customers must ask
for, offers an interest rate of zero percent.
Customers selecting the zero percent inter-
est rate option will not be able to use their
Military Star Card for the duration of
their assignment to the contingency area.
For more information, contact the Military
Star Card Contact Center at 214-312-
4326 or DSN 967-4326.
Military Star Card applications are
available at any NEX. The application can
be processed the same day at the NEX cus-
tomer service desk.

NAS JAX SPORTS


Photos by Clark Pierce
(Right) All Navy Wrestling Coach Rob Hermann told Tri-Base Sailors and Marines, "I only have
20 roster spots -- and you only have three minutes to demonstrate that you deserve one of
them."


All Navy wrestling tryouts held
By Clark Pierce
Editor


Of the 18 Tri-Base
wrestlers who
signed up for the
qualification event Oct. 22
at the NAS Jacksonville
Gym, only a select few or
possibly none would be
offered no-cost TAD orders
to the All Navy Wrestling
Camp Feb. 7 at NAS
Pensacola, Fla.
All Navy Wrestling Coach
Rob Hermann was very
clear on his expectations.
"This is not an intramural
camp. I have only 20 spots
on my roster. My job is to
get Navy wrestlers up to
the Olympic level so I'm
looking for guys with level-
one college or top-three-in-
your-state wrestling experi-
ence today."
Hermann explained, "It's
real simple, you get three
minutes to show me what
you can do on the mat.
Watch your head positions
- I want to see aggres-
siveness and how well you
defend."
He said the main
focus of this team is the
Armed Forces Wrestling
Championships in March at
Camp Lejeune, N.C. From
there, they go to the U.S.
Nationals and if they're
good enough the world
team, the Pan-Am Games
and even the U.S. Olympic
team.
There are seven weight
classes, beginning at 121
pounds. The team competes
in both freestyle and Greco-
Roman wrestling.
A retired chief, Hermann
has coached the All Navy
team since 1983.


Adam Melans defends against Robert Yamashita Oct. 22 at the
All Navy Wrestling Team tryouts at NAS Jacksonville Gym.


Jacob Wadkins and Dustin Foster show their best moves Oct.
22 at the All Navy Wrestling Team tryouts at NAS Jacksonville
Gym.
He invited four com-
petitors to the All Navy
Wrestling Camp Feb.
7 at NAS Pensacola:
David Schneider, Chris
McWhirter, Adam Melans
and Robert Yamashita.

From the TRICARE Management Activity

''D rug free is the key" is the
theme for Red Ribbon Week
2009 and is a reminder to
TRICARE beneficiaries of the dangers of
unhealthy lifestyle habits.
Red Ribbon Week is the nation's old-
est and largest drug prevention program,
reaching millions of Americans during
the last week of October every year. The
Defense Department's 2009 Red Ribbon
Week observation is set for Oct. 23-31.
Since 1990, DoD has officially participated
in this event to raise public awareness and
mobilize communities to combat tobacco,
alcohol and drug use among military per-
sonnel, civilians and their families.
Each year DoD and the military ser-
vices sponsor Red Ribbon Week activities
to focus attention on the destructive effects
drugs have on America. To celebrate DoD's
efforts to keep Americans drug-free, the
Pentagon will host an awards ceremony on
Oct. 23 at 9:30 a.m. in the Pentagon Hall
of Heroes. The ceremony is open to all DoD
employees.
TRICARE urges beneficiaries dealing


with substance abuse issue to take advan-
tage of the many available options to treat
substance abuse and disorders. Services
include detoxification, rehabilitation and
outpatient group and family therapy.
There are also a number of DoD and
TRICARE educational programs to raise
awareness of some of these issues. For
example, the award-winning "Quit
Tobacco. Make Everyone Proud" smoking
cessation campaign can be found at http://
www.ucanquit2.org. Users can develop a
personalized plan for quitting, play games,
listen to podcasts, connect to on-line ces-
sation programs and even chat with a
trained cessation counselor, seven days a
week from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. EST.
"That Guy," is an award-winning social
marketing initiative to raise awareness
about alcohol abuse. The campaign tar-
gets 18-24 year old service members and
highlights social disapproval of excessive
drinking by featuring the embarrassing
consequences. Check out the interactive
Web site at http://www.thatguy.com.

vation of Red Ribbon Week visit http://tri-
care.mil/tma/DDRP/red-ribbon-week. aspx.
