FRCSE civilians earn GWOT Medal


By Marsha Childs
FRCSE Public Affairs


IT t was an intense environ-
ment, especially the first
six months with incom-
ing rockets and mortars and
our outgoing artillery. I had
two or three very close calls,"
said Jonathan Stafford of his
11-month deployment to Iraq as
a Department of Defense (DoD)
civilian employee embedded with
the U.S. Army.
Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast (FRCSE) employ-
ees Stafford, John Argabrite,
Keith Presser and William Houk
received the Global War On
Terrorism (GWOT) Medal at a
ceremony held Oct. 9 at Naval Air
Station (NAS) Jacksonville.
The medal recognizes and
honors the vital contributions
of DoD civilian employees who
have served in a military cam-
paign abroad since 2001 in direct
support of Warfighters combating
terrorism.
FRCSE Commanding Officer
Capt. Paul Sohl said, as he pre-
sented the medals, "It is the con-
tinuous efforts of our people that
make all the difference. They


gave the extra measure, work-
ing long hours under considerable
physical and mental distress."
He concluded by thanking the
awardees for their service to a
grateful nation.
Operations against terrorism
require the special skills civil-
ians bring. The GWOT medalists
deployed independently of one
another to a variety of locations.
Three of the specialists provided
direct support to combat troops,
while another assisted the Iraqi
government with humanitarian,
economic and governance efforts.
FRCSE Business Specialist
Stafford served from May 2007 to
April 2008 in Iraq, 35 kilometers
south of Baghdad.
He supported the U.S. State
Department's Provincial
Reconstruction Team (PRT)
as an industry specialist at
Forward Operating Base (FOB)
Mahmudiyah. Life at the small
FOB was austere and difficult at
times.
Working 16- to 18-hour days,
Stafford served as the industry
and economic advisor. He devel-
oped relationships with local trib-
al leaders, government officials

'Dusty Dogs' adjust to carrier deployment changes


By Clark Pierce
Editor


HT S-7 has completed all
work-ups for our next
,deployment on board
USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75)
- but since we received word that
the Truman will leave Norfolk
later than planned for its 2010
deployment we're scheduling
sustainmentt' detachments to
keep a sharp edge on our readi-
ness levels," said HS-7 Executive
Officer Cmdr. Larry McCullen.
"We also fly back to the
Truman at the end of November
to do some at-sea carrier qualifi-
cations, as well as exercises with
Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 3," he
added.
In September, the Navy
announced an extension in the
2010 deployment of the Truman
Strike Group to just under eight
months. The decision resulted from
a delay in the overhaul of 48-year-
old USS Enterprise (CVN 65) at
Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding
in Newport News, Va.

Dusty 615 lets loose with an AGM-114 Hellfire missile on a range at NAS
Fallon, Nev. The laser-guided, air-to-surface missile entered service in 1985
as an anti-armor and precision attack weapon used against bunkers, struc-
tures, tanks and other moving vehicles.


The Navy also extended the cur-
rent deployment of USS Nimitz


(CVN 68), based in San Diego.
"Adjusting these carrier deploy-


ment schedules was the best solu-
tion of available options," said Adm.
J. C. Harvey Jr., commander, U.S.
Fleet Forces Command in a news
release. "We recognize this deci-
sion has operational and person-
nel impacts, such as training cycle
changes and family dynamics."
McCullen said the "Dusty
Dogs" worked hard to achieve
a very successful deployment
readiness cycle, including: the
Helicopter Advanced Readiness
Program; Naval Strike and Air
Warfare Center at NAS Fallon,
Nev.; Composite Training Unit
Exercise; and the Joint Task
Force Exercise.
"Skipper Mordhorst and I are
blessed with a highly profession-
al wardroom and an extremely
strong chiefs mess. With that
kind of leadership, HS-7 passed
its annual NATOPS inspection
with flying colors, including the
fleet's highest exam average. Our
people also achieved zero discrep-
ancies our search-and-rescue eval-
uation. Nine HS-7 Sailors were


awarded enlisted aviation warfare
specialist badges in 2009.
"To maintain readiness levels,
we regularly send detachments to
the Navy's Atlantic Undersea Test
and Evaluation Center (AUTEC)
range headquartered on Andros
Island in the Bahamas to train in
anti-submarine warfare. We also
qualify a number of our opera-
tors in combat search-and-rescue
and naval special warfare support
missions at AUTEC," explained
McCullen.
HS-7 plans to send other
detachments to Harry S. Truman
and NAS Fallon.
"We're also planning a final
sustainment exercise that we
unofficially call 'COMP3EX'
which invites higher level staff
to give us their most challeng-
ing battle scenarios. Then, in
February, we plan to have most
of our people on leave prior to our
deployment sometime in March,"
said McCullen.

years of naval aviation excellence" at NAS Jacksonville.


By Clark Pierce
Editor
Dozens of historically savvy Sailors
and civilians gathered at Heritage
Park Oct. 30 to be some of the first to
receive a pair of posters commemorating the
70th anniversary of NAS Jacksonville. The
posters were unveiled by NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
and Executive Officer Capt. Jeffrey Maclay.
"The first poster artfully displays the con-
trasts in people and aircraft over the past 70
years," said Scorby. "The second poster dis-
plays 114 emblems of squadrons, other com-


mands and community organizations that
have played roles in our station's rich his-
tory."
The event kicked off a year-long celebration
to culminate in October 2010 when the sta-
tion turns 70 years old.
Scorby engaged the audience with some
historic facts about the base:

15, 1940 with Capt. Charles Mason as the
first commanding officer.

Looking back to 1959...


U.S. Navy photo
The P2 Neptune was a land-based maritime patrol and anti-submarine aircraft powered by two Wright piston engines
and two jet pods to assist in take-off. Its first squadron delivery was in 1947. More than 1100 were built and no other
post-war maritime patrol aircraft has been built in such large numbers. Pictured above is a P2V-7, the final Neptune
variant off the Lockheed production line. It featured the MAD boom installation in place of the rear tail turret and an
APS-20 radome mounted under the fuselage. The aircraft's designation was changed to SP-2H in 1963.



Lost ducky unexpected favorite


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


During a recent bike ride, Mike,
who doesn't have children yet,
unknowingly made a profound
observation about parenthood. "The
hills that look really bad usually end
up being pretty easy," he said. "And
the ones that look easy are surpris-
ingly hard."
Mike was talking about biking,
and he was trying to encourage me
through the last couple miles of our
trek, when, as we turned onto Mt.
Hope Road and I saw the incline
before me, all I wanted to do was
get off my bike and walk. Or, better
yet, take out my cell phone and call
Dustin for a ride.
A few days later, I realized that
Mike's comment could be applied to
many aspects of life, and in particu-
lar, to parenting.
I was shopping for decorations for
a Halloween party with my friend
Steph (to be formally introduced in
next week's column, and our respec-
tive sons, Lindell, 2-1/2, and Preston,
3. We browsed the aisles accompanied
by the surrounding commotion caused
by two preschoolers. It's a chaos to
which we have grown accustomed.
There was giggling, fighting and
finally, cooperation. But that was just
Steph and me. The kids were running
circles around us, and I think, but I'm
not positive, Lindell was pretending to
be Preston's dog.
I can't say for sure what the boys
were doing, except that they were
underfoot (quite literally), because
Steph and I were consumed with
remembering our shopping list and
dividing the expenses. Then all hell
broke loose. Lindell, still in full dog


pose, fell at my feet and was begging
for a Halloween duck.
"I want Halloween duck," he said
over and over again. Somehow, while
Steph and I were distracted, the boys
had grown fond of two 75-cent rubber
duckies dressed as pumpkins. Now
they were acting like their hearts
would break if we left the store with-
out them.
"Fine. You want 75-cent rubber
duckies? We'll get them for you." Then
I turned to Steph and said under my
breath, "How long until those cheap
toys end up in the trash." (Spoiler
alert: not very long.)
I couldn't imagine why Lindell and
Preston wanted plastic duckies that
were no bigger than a small apple
(remember this comparison later).
Except, just as Mike had pointed
out, perception can deceive. The eye's
hill is the bike's mountain, just as
the junky toy is a child's treasure.
On Christmas morning, for example,
children will generally be more excit-
ed about an inexpensive toy than the
larger, flashier ones that you saved
for because you thought they had the
"wow" factor.
Lindell loved his rubber ducky all
that afternoon. I was happy because
now, instead of acting like a pet him-
self, he was patting his ducky and
taking him for "walks."
Then Dustin came home.
It's true that the ducky dressed up
as a pumpkin did look a little like a
half-eaten apple (although, I've never
seen an apple that squeaks). So when
Dustin saw Lindell throw his ducky
across the room, he thought it was

food and belonged in the garbage.
"Lindell, you can't leave food on
the ground like that. Go put it in the
trash," Dustin said.
If Lindell's speech was more
advanced, he might have protested.
Instead, he picked up his rubber
ducky toy, walked sullenly into the
kitchen, where I was washing dishes,
and set his ducky in the trash can.
With big, teary eyes, he gave it one
last look before closing the lid.
"Don't throw away your ducky," I
said, unaware of what had just hap-
pened in the living room.
"My daddy told me to," Lindell said.
I left the kitchen to sort out the
confusion and explain to Dustin that
what looked like an apple was actually
a cheap toy that his son had grown to
love like a pet. But in my haste, I for-
got to take the ducky out of the trash.
The next day, Lindell cried for his
lost ducky, and we panicked when
we remembered that no one had ever
rescued it from the garbage. Luckily
though, Lindell is the third child,
and the same rules of cleanliness and
decency expected for first-born chil-
dren don't apply. After realizing that
the trash from the night before had
been bagged and tied, but not taken
outside yet, I poked a hole in the side
of the plastic bag, dug my fingers into
the deep, squishy pile of wet paper
towels and banana peels and pulled
out the ducky. After a good rinsing
in the kitchen sink, it was as good as
any new cheap rubber toy. You would
have thought I'd saved the world by
the look on Lindell's face.
All for a 75-cent duck. Who knew?

NH Jax 'Under My Wing' Sailors visit USS Carney
By Loren Barnes--
NH Jax Public Affairs
.wm


USS Carney (DDG 64), home ported at NS Mayport,
recently hosted a "Fleet for a Day" experience for 12
Sailors from Naval Hospital Jax who participate in
the "Under My Wing" mentoring program.
Co-chaired by Lt. Felipe Finley and HM1 Ray Wagner, the
program is designed to nurture and guide junior Sailors to
become leaders in the fleet.
Three committee members and mentors Wagner,
LS1(SW/AW) Saturnino Rivera and HMC(FMF/AW)
Linwood Pulley accompanied the junior Sailors aboard
the destroyer. "The tour took them out of the shore medical
setting and allowed them to experience what it is like to be
part of a ship's crew, to experience life on board a U.S. Navy
warship and to see how it differs from their regular duties
ashore," Rivera said.
A former Carney crew member, Rivera said, "I enjoyed
sharing my first-hand experiences during the tour. The
ship's crew was professional, displayed great military bear-
ing and were eager to show our Sailors the duties of their
field and life onboard ship. We appreciate them taking time
from their busy schedule as they prepare to deploy in 2010."
"Today, I learned what the usual working day was like
for a shipboard Corpsman," said HM3 Victoria Dodge, who
works at Branch Health Clinic Jax, "I learned some new ter-
minology for ship life. I thought today was wonderful and I
wouldn't change a thing. I would like to go on the ship for an
underway cruise though," she added.
They toured the ship's medical department where
HM2(SW) Jacob Sturgill described his duties as corpsman.
The group also toured the bridge and the combat information
center (CIC). The Sailors also visited the berthing areas and
walked across the ship's helicopter flight deck with its non-
skid surfaces. They enjoyed a fine Navy meal in the galley
with the crew, who answered their questions about day-to-
day shipboard life. The group was very impressed with the
five-inch gun turret and took their turns behind one of the
ship's 25mm guns.
HN Dylan Yeager, who cares for patients in the hospital's
maternal infant unit, expressed his thanks for the tour. "I
found the fleet visit to be a real eye-opener as a corpsman.
I now have a much better understanding as to the responsi-
bilities of our job outside of a ward setting. Now, when I pick
permanent change of station (PCS) orders I will have a very
clear idea of what it means to be attached to a ship. It was a
lot of fun," said Yeager.
The "Under My Wing" program is designed to match the
junior Sailors with the right mentors who in turn provide
guidance and help the Sailor's make the right decisions that
will lead them on the right career path. The program focuses
on careers, education, officer programs and any career path
which the Sailor might need guidance.
Wagner said he felt the trip was a complete success. He
said, "I'm very appreciative of the hard work that the Fleet
For A Day staff and the USS Carney corpsman exhibited.
The professionalism and personal knowledge of the USS
Carney crew was exceptionally impressive as well."

Aircraft emergency


landing exercise


tests Air Ops and


rapid responders
By Clark Pierce
Editor

It's an emergency situation that every airport must be
prepared for a plane approaches for landing with
malfunctioning landing gear. Hundreds of military
and civilian personnel participated in the Oct. 29 emer-
gency scenario at NAS Jacksonville, when a four-engine
P-3C Orion aircraft assigned to VP-30 is forced to land
with a collapsed nose gear.
NAS Jax Emergency Management Officer Ray Edmond
said, "It appears that command and control communica-
tions at the station's emergency operations center (EOC)
performed as expected. Our ELMR (enterprise land
mobile radio) network also worked well, enabling different
commands to monitor and communicate with each other
through a single system of hand-held radios."
At the EOC, Edmond worked with NAS Jax Executive
Officer Capt. Jeffrey Maclay, as well as incident com-
manders from air operations, crash crew, fire and rescue,
Naval Hospital Jacksonville, public works, Fleet and
Family Support Center, environmental department, safety
and public affairs/media information.
Bob Irwin, deputy emergency manager at Commander
Navy Region Southeast, was an observer at the EOC. "I
liked the teamwork that was exhibited during this exer-
cise. First responders worked well with corpsmen to triage
and transport victims for hospital care. The integration of
the response effort was noteworthy," said Irwin.
"In addition to a hard landing that resulted in various
injuries to the P-3C operators, the scenario included an
environmental issue where leaking hydraulic fluid flows
into a storm drain that empties into the St. Johns River,"
said Jim Butters, NAS Jax installation training officer.
"So, in addition to our crash crew, fire/rescue and medi-
cal personnel responding to the aircraft -our NAS Jax
Environmental Department Hazmat Spill Response Team
simultaneously worked to remediate the environmental
issue," said Butters.
Air Operations Boathouse personnel worked with envi-
ronmental staff to deploy a network of booms in the St.
Johns River to contain the simulated hydraulic fluid flow-
ing from the storm drain. The exercise also included simu-
lated calls to local and state regulatory agencies.
NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
said that the exercise tested the station's readiness and
its ability to respond promptly and properly through an
integrated, team approach.


As smoke clears from the P-3C Orion cabin, safety observer
Max Bassett performs a final check to ensure all personnel
have been evacuated. Bassett is an NAS Jacksonville occupa-
tional safety and health specialist.

Pregnant with the flu?


By Capt. Joe McQuade, MD
NH Jax Director for Public Health


I receive many questions about the
H1N1 flu especially concerning
pregnant women and the medicines
we use to treat the H1N1 flu.
Our naval hospital has opened a con-
venient flu clinic in trailers next to our
emergency department entrance. We see
patients with flu symptoms from 10 a.m. to
5 p.m. every day.
This minimizes wait time for outpatient
care and reduces the chances of spreading
infection within the hospital.
Our staff in the flu clinic welcomes preg-
nant patients and works closely to consult
with your obstetrical provider to deliver
the care you may need.
Q: What if I am pregnant and I get
2009 H1N1?
Call your doctor right away if you have
flu symptoms or if you have close contact
with someone who has the flu. Pregnant
women with 2009 H1N1 can have serious
health problems. Some pregnant women
sick with 2009 H1N1 have had early labor
and severe pneumonia. Some have died.
Our Flu clinic can quickly assess your
condition and consult with obstetricians


and other doctors to get
you the help you may
need.
Q: What can I do to
protect myself, my
baby and my family?
Getting a flu shot is the
single best way to protect
against the flu. Talk with
your doctor about getting
a seasonal flu shot and
the 2009 H1N1 flu shot.
You will need both flu
shots this year to be fully
protected against flu./
Breastfeeding is rec-
ommended during this
flu season to help protect Capt. Joe M
your baby from illness.
Call our central appointments number
542-4677 to get information updated daily
on what vaccines we have available now
and where you can get them.
Q: Is it safe for pregnant women to
get a flu shot?


Ic


The seasonal flu
shot has been given
to millions of preg-
nant women over
many years. Flu shots
have not been shown
to cause harm to preg-
nant women or their
babies. The 2009 H1N1
flu shot is made in the
same way as the sea-
sonal flu shot. It is very
important for pregnant
women to get both the
seasonal flu shot and
the 2009 H1N1 flu shot.
Please go to http://www.
Quade, M.D. cdc.gov/h in lflu/vaccina-
tion/ to learn more.
Q: Who else should get a flu shot?
Anybody who cares for babies younger
than six months should get a seasonal flu
shot and a 2009 H1N1 flu shot to pro-
tect against the flu. This includes you and
any family members or other people who


ASK DR JOE


Screening tour potentially saves 77 lives


By Erin Mulvey
The Skin Cancer Foundation
With the help of volun-
teer dermatologists from
across the country, The
Skin Cancer Foundation's second
Road to Healthy Skin Tour con-
cluded Oct. 19 with the detection
of 77 suspected melanomas (the
deadliest form of skin cancer).
The Tour, which provides free
full-body skin cancer screenings
and the latest skin cancer infor-
mation, made 83 stops this sum-
mer.
A recent study published in the
Archives of Dermatology showed
that more than half of all melano-
mas are found through full-body
skin examinations conducted by a
dermatologist.


,., \








"We have always believe
high-risk patients shi
screened once a year by
sician," said Perry F
president, The Skin
Foundation.
"This new study and
pected skin cancers w
on the tour reinforce wh
known all along."
In addition to the 77
ed melanomas, more tha


possible other skin cancers were
detected including 350 suspected
basal cell carcinomas, 113 sus-
pected squamous cell carcinomas,
and 661 suspected actinic kerato-
ses or precancers.
Skin cancer is the most com-
cancer.gov mon form of cancer in the United
States. However, when detected
ved that early, it is almost always curable.
would be Everyone is at some risk for
y a phy- melanoma, but increased risk
Robins, depends on several factors:
Cancer Personal History people who
have or have had basal cell carci-
the sus- noma and/or squamous cell car-
e found cinoma are at increased risk for
at we've developing melanoma. And people
who have already had a melano-
suspect- ma are at increased risk of devel-
in 1,200 oping another.


Family History about one in
every ten patients diagnosed with
the disease has a family mem-
ber with a history of melanoma.
Each person with a first-degree
relative diagnosed with melanoma
has a 50 percent greater chance
of developing the disease than
people who do not have a family
history.
Moles the more moles, the
greater your risk for melanoma.
Skin Type as with all skin
cancers, people with fair skin are
at increased risk.
Sun Exposure both UVA
and UVB rays are danger-
ous to the skin, and can lead
to skin cancer, including mela-
noma. Having one or more blis-
tering sunburns in childhood or


adolescence more than doubles
a person's chances of developing
melanoma later in life. In addi-
tion, people who live in locations
that have more sunlight -such as
Florida, Hawaii and Australia -
develop more skin cancers. About
65 percent of melanoma cases can
be attributed to ultraviolet (UV)
radiation from the sun.
Tanning Beds first exposure
to tanning beds in youth increas-
es melanoma risk by 75 percent.
The Skin Cancer Foundation
recommends that high-risk
patients undergo an annual full-
body skin screening by a physi-
cian once a year. For more infor-
mation on the warning signs of
melanoma, please visit http://

will be caring for your baby. We vacci-
nated NAS Jax Child Development Center
workers this year for seasonal flu and will
return when we have H1N1 vaccine avail-
able.
Q: How is 2009 H1N1 flu treated?
2009 H1N1 flu can be treated with anti-
viral drugs such as Tamiflu (oseltami-
vir) or Relenza (zanamivir). Antiviral
drugs are prescription pills, liquids or an
inhaled powder that fight against the flu
by keeping the germs from growing in your
body. These medicines work best if they
are taken as soon as you have symptoms of
the flu.
That's why it is important that you call
your doctor as soon as you notice flu symp-
toms. The medicine is not like an antibi-
otic that cures an infection. It is recom-
mended only for patients who are hospital-
ized for the flu or who are at significant
risk of severe complications of the flu like a
pregnant woman with asthma or diabetes.
Antiviral medicines can be taken at any
stage during pregnancy.
Treat any fever right away with acet-
aminophen (Tylenol) and drink plenty of
fluids to replace those you lose when you
are sick.

CLIFF'S ENERGY NOTES


Make energy


awareness month a


year-round commitment


By Cliff Plante
NAVFAC Southeast Resource Efficiency Manager
A s energy awareness month came to
a close, we have had a lot of positive
feedback on the technology displays
and conservation demonstrations that took
place at NAS Jacksonville during October.
First we had the "Green Trailer" which
presented new devices for low-flow toilets
and urinals, as well as low-flow shower
heads and sink aerators.
Second, we had the NEX Food court dis-
plays of lighting and water-saving conser-
vation projects that have been installed at
NAS Jacksonville.
Also at this site, we had the solar-pow-
ered Global Electric Motor (GEM) vehicle
on static display which also garnered a lot
of curiosity.
The BRITE mascot made his appear-
ance behind the wheel of the GEM and the
youngsters found him entertaining. BRITE
made an appearance during the Oct. 30
Monster Dash 5K Run.
On a more serious note, President
Barack Obama signed Executive Order
(EO) 13514 Federal Leadership in
Environmental, Energy and Economic
Performance Oct. 8. Of concern to all mil-
itary, civilians and contractors at NAS
Jacksonville is: (1) reducing energy intensi-
ty in agency buildings; (2) increasing agen-
cy use of renewable energy and implement-


ing renewable energy generation projects
on agency property; and (3) reducing the
use of fossil fuels.
Another section of the EO calls for
improved water use efficiency by reduc-
ing potable water intensity by two percent
annually through fiscal year 2020 or 26
percent, relative to the fiscal year 2007
baseline.
What does all this mean to you? First of
all, we all need to be conscientious on our
use of electricity. Get into the habit of turn-
ing off lights when leaving a room (at home
or in the office).
For your car or truck, keep tires properly
inflated. Under inflation shortens the life
of a tire and decreases gas mileage. For
every pound per square inch (psi) below the
proper level, there is an average increase in
fuel consumption of 0.4 percent. Check the
pressure when vehicle has not been driven
for a while. A good time would be either
before or after refueling the vehicle.
Water conservation can be difficult. One
thing that we all can do is to report leaky
faucets promptly. A leaky faucet dripping
only one drop per minute wastes five gal-
lons a day or 1,825 gallons a year. Fill
the sink when you wash dishes by hand
instead of letting the water run. This could
save up to 25 gallons of water each time
you hand-wash dishes.

My commissary clerks hate me


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor


You can see it in their faces. My local
commissary clerks hate me. Every
shopping day, I prepare myself for
not only the disdain of my checkout clerk,
but the fuming of those patrons in line
behind me. Why? Because I'm "that lady"
- the one who holds up the line with her
big stack of coupons.
I confess that I am the "coupon queen,"
but I was not always this way.
In fact, I used to think coupon clippers
were uptight penny pinchers. I scoffed at
their little 'coupon wallets' and mini cal-
culators. I reached right across them and
grabbed my items without regard for cost
or coupon.
I was free free of paper cuts, worry and
penny pinching. What was a quarter here
and fifty cents there? I laugh at the face of
such pettiness.
I was converted slowly, sort of like an
alcoholic. It started with those coupons
hanging beneath the items on the grocery
shelf. You know the ones I am referring to.
I was purchasing McCormick's Herb and


Garlic marinade anyway. What the heck
-I'll take that 25 cents off coupon. Then
I saw the "military only" coupon. Wow,
I'm part of an exclusive group of savers...
Military Only savers.
My addiction deepened when my com-
missary installed those coupon dispensers
with the flashing red lights. I had to stop
and take note of the savings. I had to grab
that coupon, after all, I was buying that
item anyway!
But the clincher was the commissary
receipt. At the bottom of the receipt some-
thing caught my eye...Total number of cou-
pons, Total saved from coupons, total % of
savings. I saved $24! Thirteen percent of
my food bill! TWENTY-FOUR DOLLARS
and all I did was grab a few coupons laying
there.
Do you know what I can do with that
$24? Can you say Pedicure? Hmmmm...I1
wonder... could I increase the savings next
time to get, say, a manicure AND pedi-


cure? A Massage? Or more? I was hooked.
I was on a mission to fund my 'splurges'
with guilt free savings. I made mistakes
along the way. I clipped every coupon and
purchased items I didn't use, or didn't
like...or worse yet I let that coupon influ-
ence my purchase on a product that actu-
ally cost MORE than an item without a
coupon.
My skills developed, I became a shrewd
coupon clipper. I scouted the resources
like the best deer hunter; in the Sunday
paper, the commissary, and WOW, online!
I honed my skills to clip only those for
products I actually use and provide real
savings.
Yes to this coupon. No to that one.
Forget that lame 'coupon wallet' I require
a 'coupon box'...an index card box, complete
with index guides, to organize my coupons.
My standards are high: coupons must be
for quality products that provide real sav-
ings.


SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


GWOT: '. . if a man is working, he

doesn't have time to build bombs'
From Page 1 BI


Stafford facilitated the
acquisition of needed
resources, including gener-
ators to keep several facto-
ries operating at full capac-
ity.
Further, he connect-
ed buyers with sellers to
improve commerce and
worked tirelessly to estab-
lish a business council for
promoting economic devel-
opment to spur employ-
ment and deter the threat
of terrorism.
"If a person has employ-
ment to sustain himself,
feed his family and envi-
sion a future, he has a
better chance of resisting
enticements by terrorists
and thugs," he observed.
"What's more, if a man is
working, he doesn't have
time to build bombs."
Another duty Stafford
enjoyed was accompanying
American soldiers on their
daily rounds to distribute
donated clothing, toys, toi-
letries, wheelchairs and
drinking water.
"American news media
don't give our humanitar-
ian efforts over there jus-
tice," he said. "This was
without a doubt the most
professionally and person-
ally rewarding experience
of my life."
GWOT medalist and
machinist John Argabrite
worked in Iraq alongside
troops under harsh condi-
tions to keep critical air-
craft airborne. Serving from
June to September 2008
in Al Asad, he performed
50-hour recurring inspec-
tions on F/A-18 Hornet jets.
In addition, Argabrite
manufactured three bear-
ing supports for emergency
transport of three CH-53
Sea Stallion helicopters
to Afghanistan. He also
performed an emergency
repair of canted bulkhead
locking pin bushings on a
Navy HH-60H Seahawk
helicopter in Balad.
After completing
the emergency repair,
Argabrite hopped another
HH-60H back to Al Asad.
The crew had installed the
only passenger seat near
the door. "They only fly at
night, so the only light you

have is from the infrared
radar. It's dark and then
suddenly you see all this
gold stuff coming up from
the ground," he said. "It
was tracer fire."
The two door gunners,
armed with rapid-fire M60
machine guns, returned fire
with shell casings tearing
through the air.
"They scared the hell
out of me! I was burned
by hot brass flying all over
the inside of the cabin," he
reported.
In spite of working in
unforgiving heat, endur-
ing raging sandstorms and
being fired upon, Argabrite
still thinks that his wife,
who remained at home in
Middleburg, probably had
the harder job.
He said, "I want to thank
my wife Lori. The well
pump went out and the
freezer went out but she
took care of it all, plus, our
kids."
GWOT medalist Keith
Presser, a planner and esti-
mator, deployed twice to
help sustain the efforts of
U.S. Warfighters. His first
tour was in support of the
Western Pacific Fleet from
December 2002 to February
2003 aboard the USS
Constellation (CV-63).
More recently, he pro-
vided support to Fleet
Readiness Center East
at Al Taqaddum Airbase
(about 20 miles from
Fallujah, Iraq) from April
to October 2007. He evalu-
ated damage and planned
repairs to ensure aircraft
were quickly returned to
operational forces.

The Secretary of Defense
Global War On Terrorism
Medal was approved in 2007
for DoD civilians who have
served in combat zones since
2001 in direct support of
U.S. troops.

Presser felt humbled to
receive the medal. He said,
"The military guys who are
over there, they deserve the
thanks. It was 120 degrees
in Iraq and I wore regular
clothes they wore lots of
armament, not including
their rifles, water and back-
packs."
Presser vividly recalled
the blaring sirens used for
signaling helicopter air-
crews to prepare for imme-
diate take-off and provide
operational support or
casualty evacuations.
"It was like that movie,
MASH," he said. "They
made that eerie sound."
At the beginning of his
tour, the signals were
sounded about seven times
in a 12-hour shift.
"By the time I left, we
only heard about one every
shift. That is how I knew
conditions had improved."
After consulting with
his wife, Presser agreed to
a three-month extension.
He said, "My quality of life
made a big difference. We
weren't taking rounds at
the time."
While deployed, his wife
dealt with all the family
issues. "I just wasn't there

Fleming Island resi-

deployed twice to Al
Taqaddum, Iraq from July
to November 2006 and
again from December 2007
to June 2008.
He supported all U.S.
Marine Corps and Navy
helicopter and F/A-18
squadrons throughout the
region as an aircraft plan-
ner and estimator.
He explained, "I and one
other artisan took care of
all the squadrons' aircraft

returning from their mis-

damages and planned out

would perform the work."
Houk slept in a 7' x 15'

I adapted my shopping skills as well. I
menu plan to maximize my accumulated
coupons. I developed a shopping list that
follows the layout of my local commissary
and added a tiny column where I indicate
that I have a coupon for that item. I am a
skilled and relentless coupon saver.
This has created an adversarial posi-
tion with many clerks. They look at my
stack and I can see it on their face, "I will
find those expired coupons, I will disqual-
ify anything that does not perfectly fit the
requirements of that coupon." And the
battle begins. Have I scrubbed my stack,
are there expired coupons? Did I buy the
required number for the full savings? Who
will 'win?'
I am not happy unless I save at least
15% of my total bill. My record is 29%!
My highest savings for one shopping trip
is $94.89. Last year I saved $1,418.25
through coupon clipping. I am not resting
on my laurels...I will beat that record this

Air Force One


From staff


When President
Barack Obama
visited NAS
Jacksonville Oct. 26, hun-
dreds of citizens stood in
commercial parking lots
to watch his aircraft, "Air
Force One," land on the
station's main runway.
According to the White
House Military Office, no
matter where in the world
the President travels, if he
flies in an Air Force jet, the
plane is called Air Force
One. Technically, Air Force
One is the call sign of any
Air Force aircraft carrying
the President.
In practice, however, Air
Force One is used to refer
to one of two highly cus-
tomized Boeing 747-200B
series aircraft, which carry
the tail codes 28000 and
29000.
Air Force One is one of
the most recognizable sym-
bols of the presidency,
spawning countless refer-
ences not just in American

culture but across the
world. Emblazoned with
the words "United States


of America," the American
flag, and the Seal of the
President of the United


States, it is an undeniable
presence wherever it flies.
Capable of refueling
midair, Air Force One has
unlimited range and can
carry the President wher-
ever he needs to travel.
The onboard electronics
are hardened to protect
against an electromagnetic
pulse, and Air Force One
is equipped with advanced
secure communications
equipment, allowing the
aircraft to function as a
mobile command center in
the event of an attack on
the United States.
Inside, the President
and his travel companions
enjoy 4,000 square feet of
floor space on three lev-
els, including an extensive


suite for the President that
features a large office, lava-
tory and conference room.
Air Force One includes a
medical suite that can func-
tion as an operating room,
and a doctor is permanent-
ly on board. The plane's
two food preparation gal-
leys can feed 100 people at
a time.
Air Force One also has
quarters for those who
accompany the President,
including senior advi-
sors, Secret Service offi-
cers, traveling press and
other guests. Several cargo
planes typically fly ahead
of Air Force One to provide
the President with services
needed in remote locations.
Air Force One is main-


trained and operated by
the Presidential Airlift
Group, part of the White
House Military Office. The
Airlift Group was founded
in 1944 as the Presidential
Pilot Office at the direc-
tion of President Franklin
D. Roosevelt. For the next
20 years, various propel-
ler driven aircraft served
the President. In 1962,
President John F. Kennedy
became the first President
to fly in his own jet aircraft,
a modified Boeing 707.
Over the years, several
other jet aircraft have been
used, with the first of the
current aircraft being deliv-
ered in 1990 during the
administration of President
George H. W. Bush.

SECNAV outlines five 'ambitious' energy goals


By Paula Paige
Corporate Communications
Office of Naval Research


Saying he was commit-
ting the Navy and Marine
Corps to meet bold, ambi-
tious goals, Secretary of the
Navy Ray Mabus announced
five energy targets to the audi-
ence of more than 750 gathered
Oct. 14-15 at the Naval Energy
Forum in McLean, Va.
Those targets include:
Change the acquisition pro-
cess to consider the lifetime
energy cost of the system, when
awarding Navy and Marine Corps
contracts.
By 2012, create a "Green
Strike Group" composed of nucle-
ar vessels and ships powered by
biofuels -and deploy that fleet by
2016.
By 2015, reduce petroleum
use in the Navy's 50,000 commer-
cial vehicle fleet by 50 percent
through phasing in hybrid fuel
and electric vehicles.
Produce at least half of shore-
based energy requirements from
renewable sources such as solar,
wind and ocean-generated power.
By 2020, ensure at least 40
percent of the Navy's total energy

hybrid and alternative fuel tech-
nologies and opportunities for
one-on-one collaborations.
In addition to Mabus, Chief
of Naval Operations Adm. Gary
Roughead also shared his vision
of the Navy's energy strategy
with the cross-section of represen-
tatives from federal government
agencies, academic institutions,
small businesses and the defense
industry.
The Department of Defense
is the largest government and
individual petroleum user in the
United States, consuming about
330,000 barrels of oil per day,
according to military officials.
The Department of the Navy is
the second largest fuel user in the
DoD, consuming about 100,000
barrels a day. About 75 percent
of all fuel products are trans-
ported by sea, much of it passing
through vulnerable points pro-
tected by U.S. naval forces.
"It comes as no surprise that
energy powers our way of life,"
Roughead said during his speech.
"I also think that as we go for-
ward, the Navy can continue to
be a great steward of our envi-
ronment. The initiatives that we
explore here, and things that we

Dr. Larry Schuette, ONR direc-

the "Pitch a Principal" program
where interested parties dis-
cussed funding opportunities with
ONR. He said the forum was a
great platform to exchange ideas.
"This was the perfect opportu-

Other participants also praised
the forum. Jeff Voth, president of
Herron Associates, an engineer-

impressive. By the show of senior
leadership attendance and the
delivery of an aggressive naval
energy strategy, the Navy is tak-
ing the lead and raising the bar
for industry to achieve more."

GUIDE TO MILITARY TRAVEL


Favorite fall destinations


By Erica PeFia-Vest
Special Contributor


I remember hearing that the fall and
winter seasons bring on depression
in some people. The colder weather,
reduced sunlight and the end of our sum-
mer fun makes some people dread this
time of year. Well, I am the opposite.
Maybe it's the traveler in me but the
fall season represents one very important
thing to me off-peak season in travel! If
you were holding back on your summer
vacation because of crowds and/or money,
now is the time to reconsider your options.
October and early November bring massive
discounts in the travel industry. Hotels
offer off-peak rates, airlines offer deep dis-
counts and you can actually ride the Tower
of Terror at Walt Disney World without
waiting for what seems to be hours.
When you visit my Website (www.
guidetomilitarytravel.com) you'll find most
discounts are available until the end of
2009. You can have all the fun that was
waiting for you this summer but without
the crowds.
When my husband and I were stationed


in Jacksonville, we loved to visit the
amusement parks in Orlando in the fall
because the crowds are fewer, the weather
is near perfect and the hotel discounts are.
What better time to take advantage of the
free and discounted tickets offered by Sea
World, Universal Orlando and Walt Disney
World.
When planned correctly, a fall vacation
for those without school-age children can
prove to be extremely affordable, enjoyable
and quite relaxing. For those with school-
age kids, consider taking an educational
trip to Washington D.C., Boston or San
Antonio. Get your child's school to allow
it for extra credit. If that doesn't work,
play the 'military' card. You know, the
one where you say, "We have to take vaca-
tions at inconvenient times because we are
slaves to our (military person's) schedule."
So, avoid seasonal depression by get-
ting out, finding some sun, having fun and
saving money. If you need more advice on
where to go, email me at Erica@guideto-
militarytravel.com. I'll help you find some-
where near, cheep and fun to cure those
fall and winter blues.


2010 Scholarships for Military


Children Program now open


By Tammy Moody,
DeCA marketing and mass communication specialist

The holidays are fast approach-
ing, and they can be a fun fam-
ily time as children away at col-
lege come home, and other students get
their holiday break. It's also a time for
students and parents to apply for the
2010 Scholarships for Military Children
Program.
Scholarship applications are now avail-
able in commissaries worldwide and online
through a link at https://www.commissar-
ies.com and directly at http://www.mili-
taryscholar.org. Since the program began
in 2000, it has awarded $7.3 million in
scholarships to almost 5,000 children of
service members.
The scholarship kickoff coincides with
National Military Family Month, and is an
example of commissaries supporting their
local communities by helping to improve
the quality of life for military families, said
Defense Commissary Agency Director and
CEO Philip Sakowitz Jr.
"Being part of something that makes
higher education more affordable for mili-
tary families is thrilling, as we feel it
makes a better future possible for their
children," he said. "The program awards
$1,500 scholarships to well-rounded,
accomplished service members' children,
enabling these families to save some on
their children's tuition."
Only dependent, unmarried children,
younger than age 21 (age 23 if enrolled
as a full- time student at a college or uni-
versity) of active duty personnel, Reserve,


Guard and retired military members, sur-
vivors of service members who died while
on active duty, or survivors of individuals
who died while receiving retired pay from
the military may apply for a scholarship.
Eligibility is determined using DEERS, the
Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting
System database. Applicants should
ensure that they, as well as their spon-
sor, are enrolled in the DEERS database
and have a current ID card. The applicant
must be planning to attend, or already be
attending, an accredited college or uni-
versity full time in the fall of 2010, or be
enrolled in a program of studies designed
to transfer directly into a four-year pro-
gram.
Applicants should prepare to submit
an essay on the following topic: "You can
travel back in time; however, you can-
not change events. What point in history
would you visit and why?" Applications
must be turned in to a commissary by close
of business Feb. 17. At least one scholar-
ship will be awarded at every commissary
location with qualified applicants.
The scholarships program is adminis-
tered by Fisher House Foundation, a non-
profit organization that provides assis-
tance to service members and their fami-
lies. Scholarship Managers, a national,
nonprofit, scholarship management servic-
es organization, manages and awards the
scholarships. Commissary vendors, manu-
facturers, brokers, suppliers and the gen-
eral public donate money to the program,
and every dollar donated goes directly to
funding the scholarships.


NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. gives his closing remarks at the
Domestic Violence Safety Stand Dowm held in the VP-30 auditorium.

NEX rewards students with its

A-OK Student Reward Program
From Navy Exchange Command


T he Navy Exchange wants to help its customers
pay for their children's college education through
its A-OK Student Reward Program. Four times
per school year, four students will be the recipients of
a $5,000, $3,000 $2,000 or $1,000 U.S. savings bond,
denominations at maturity. The next drawing will be
held at the end of November 2009.
Any eligible full-time student that has a B-grade point
average equivalent or better, as determined by their
school system, may enter the drawing. Eligible students
include dependent children of active duty military mem-
bers, reservists and military retirees enrolled in first
through 12th grade. Dependent children without an indi-
vidual Dependent Identification Card must be accompa-
nied by their sponsor to submit their entry. Each student
may enter only once each grading period and must re-
enter with each qualifying report card.
To enter the drawing, stop by any NEX with a current
report card and have a NEX associate verify the minimum
grade average. Then fill out an entry card and obtain an
A-OK ID, which entitles the student to discount coupons
for NEX products and services.
The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM)
has been offering students a chance to win a savings
bond through its A-OK Student Reward Program since
1998. Since the program began, NEXCOM has awarded
$460,000 in savings bonds to 152 students with the help of
its generous vendor partners.
