More than 250 Vietnam veterans
were honored by U.S. Congressman

The event began with several patriot-
ic numbers by the Fishweir Elementary
School Chorus and the parading of the col-
ors by the NAS Jax Honor Support Team

these Vietnam veterans those who served,
those who fought, those still missing and
those who made the ultimate sacrifice. We
are here today to pay tribute and honor
your courage, your commitment and your
absolute devotion to duty," said Scorby.

The usual suspects: Supporting yours truly
By Sarah Smiley
When you are the new fam-
ily in town, as we were a
little more than a year ago,
people tend to make promises.
"We should have you over to din-
ner," they say, for example. But prom-
ises don't always turn into invita-
tions. An old adage in the publishing
world is that a consumer needs to see
your book cover three times before
they decide to buy it. I think the same
is true for new, potential friends. On
the first meeting, they make promis-
es. On the second meeting, they make
excuses for not meeting those prom-
ises. On the third meeting, they real-
ize you aren't going away, that you
really do live around the corner, so
they invite you over.
This isn't the way it happened
with my friend Steph. That's how
I knew we'd be good friends. I had
heard about Steph during my first
week in town because we both have
three children, all the same ages. We
finally met on the soccer field, and
Steph suggested we get together with
the kids. Another unfulfilled offer,
I thought. By the time I got home
from soccer practice, however, there
was a message waiting for me on the
answering machine. Steph had invit-
ed us over.
Meanwhile, I kept meeting one
mother in a baseball cap at school
pickup, and another mother with
long, strawberry-blonde hair at the
football field. I liked both of these
women, not only because they also
had three children, whom I hadn't
met up close yet, of the same ages as
mine. A week later, when the woman
in the baseball cap invited me over
for coffee, I realized that she and the
woman with long hair were the same
It's fitting that my introduction
to Heather was marked by this con-
fusion, because still, one year later,
she continues to surprise me. Steph,
Heather and I meet weekly for a play
date with our youngest boys. Heather,
who has never colored her hair or
plucked her eyebrows and has the
carefree, comfortable styling of a
JCrew model, always brings her plan-
ner and has an agenda. She knits,
then she parties. She bakes, then she
sings Karaoke with a voice like Stevie
Nicks, which we didn't know she had.
As fast as Heather waves her hand
in the air and says, "Oh, whatever,"
she just as quickly brings Steph and
I back to task with her list of items
to be discussed. (In our individual
lives, Steph and I are go-getters and
competent mothers. Put us together
- especially without Heather's orga-
nizing influence and we tend to
regress into something like two teen-
agers who have skipped school.)
Steph, Heather and I have grown
close in a relatively short period of
time. Previously, I wasn't sure such
quick, strong connections could hap-
pen outside of the military-spouse
realm, where you make fast, life-long
friends out of necessity to survive
deployments and other hardships.
I've always likened this phenom-
enon to being trapped in an eleva-
tor together. In the harshest of cir-
cumstances, bonds between strangers
Maybe last year's hard winter
brought Steph, Heather and I togeth-
er. Maybe it is the insanity of us all
being mothers to three children. In
any case, these women have become
friends that I depend upon greatly.
It is exceptional to have these kinds
of friends just one year after moving
into a new city, but it speaks to the
importance of reaching out and mak-
Which brings us to IAs ....
Although Dustin is technically on
shore duty here in Bangor, Maine,
Individual Augmentation (IAs)
assignments are a constant, sober-
ing threat. When a service member
is deployed for an IA, they are sent
individually (as opposed to the usual
process of leaving with a ship, unit
or squadron) to support another cur-
rently deployed group overseas. IAs
are generally anywhere from 6-12
months long. Often there is very
little advance notice. I've heard sto-
ries of husbands coming home on a
Friday and telling their family that
on Monday they are leaving for
12-month IA. Which is to say, shore-
based service members like Dustin
are alot like toys waiting inside an
arcade game, when suddenly the big
claw comes down and snatches them.
I fear IAs like no other deploy-
ment because without a simultane-
ously deployed group, there is not a
close, immediate support network for
families left behind. So when Dustin
uttered "IA" the other day as in "be
prepared that I could be sent on an IA
at any time" I panicked. I also cried.
Then Steph came to check on me. And
Heather called. I knew then that I
would be alright.
Real friends the kind that feel
more like family aren't special to
the military world. You just have to
seek them, follow through on prom-
ises, and when the invitation is made,
One of my buddies keeps telling me how simple it is to get a loan
online through this lender he uses. I know his credit isn't the best,
so I can't believe how quickly he gets approved for these loans. I
asked him what sort of interest rate he pays, but he said he doesn't
know. It's tempting, but part of me feels like there has to be a catch
to these loans. Any thoughts MoneyChic?
MoneyChick says: Your instincts are correct and I'm glad that
you're listening to them. If you really need a loan for a purchase and
you don't have the cash in savings, your next choice should be to
apply for a loan through your bank or credit union. If you are denied
through your primary lender, that is a red flag that you probably
shouldn't be taking out a loan in the first place. Unfortunately,
many folks don't let that denial stop them and move to the next tier
of lending. Many online lenders are more than happy to loan money
to service members for two reasons: they have a steady paycheck
and payments can be taken directly from their pay by an allotment.
Many of these lenders advertise on base and cater to those in mili-
tary circles, however they are not doing service members any favors,
only eager to take advantage of them with high interest loans.
Common interest rates are easily over 20 percent with these lend-
ers. Some lenders base themselves outside of the US, which enables
them to legally charge any rate they want. It's very important to
know what interest rate you are paying. Here's an example: If
you took out a $5000 loan with an interest rate of 20 percent and a
repay of four years, your payment would be $152.15 a month. If you
had the same loan with an interest rate of 8 percent, your payment
would be $122.06 per month. Maybe it doesn't seem like a big differ-
ence between those two payments, but if you add that difference up
over four years of paying...the difference is a whopping $1444.32.
That extra difference is basically the cost of an easy on line loan,
pretty pricey to me. Keep doing your homework and following your

Navy exceeds fiscal year
2009 reenlistment goals
From Chief of Naval Personnel
Navy achieved 108 percent of its
re-enlistment goals for fiscal
year (FY) 2009, in addition to
decreasing attrition rates due to "strong
command and deckplate leadership,"
according to a Navy message released
More than 30,000 Sailors serving in
the first 14 years of their naval career,
re-enlisted surpassing Navy's overall
re-enlistment goal by 2,175 personnel.
Re-enlistment success in each zone con-
tributed to the overall number.
In addition, attrition rates in each
zone declined each year for the time
period captured in the NAVADMIN. The
largest decrease was in Zone A Sailors,
whose attrition rate dropped by more
than one percent.
On the heels of last year's success,
the NAVADMIN also delineates FY10's
retention goals, which have shifted in
each zone to align community needs with
the appropriate experience required to
maintain a healthy force. Goals include:
55 percent retention for Zone A
Sailors, those with up to six years of
60 percent retention for Zone B
Sailors, those with six to 10 years of ser-
71 percent retention for Zone C
Sailors, those with 10 to 14 years of ser-
"Command understanding of these
individual goals is essential in influenc-
ing the desired re-enlistment behavior
for our most critical ratings," said Vice
Adm. Mark Ferguson, chief of naval per-
sonnel, in the message.
"Proper tracking of first-term Sailors
and timely submission of Perform to
Serve applications are essential to main-
taining a high-quality force."
The Navy has a variety of programs
to encourage top-performing Sailors
to remain on active duty, includ-
ing Navy Credentialing On-line which
allows achievement of civilian equiva-
lent occupational certifications and the
Assignment Incentive Pay Program,
which allows Sailors to bid on critical,
hard-to-fill billets, allowing individuals
more control over their own career path.

ing can be found on the enlisted reten-

Seabees refurbish Palmetto Cove Nature Trail
By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO .... .. ..
In 2001, the Palmetto Cove Nature Trail was created aN...i :et -
at NAS Jacksonville to allow base personnel to visit a S. -
scenic area and enjoy the great outdoors. Over the past .L
couple years, two wooden walkways have been added over "" '" '
some wet areas, however, the trail has suffered erosion .,
and water drainage problems. *'
During the past two weeks, a group of Seabees from ,
Construction Battalion Maintenance Unit (CBMU) 202 P i'
worked with the NAS Jax Environmental Department to
provide better drainage to the area by diverting rainwater
with specially built culverts. They also built a new bridge
and moved the north entrance area.
"The environmental department asked us if we could
help because the trail really wasn't being used much due to
flooding issues. We came out and did some planning and
estimating, brought in gravel and fill, and also brought in
culverts to try raising the low-lying areas and divert the
water," explained BU1(SCW) Brad Ginter, one of the crew
leaders of the project.
"Other than that, we are working on the beginning of
the south end and a foot bridge that got knocked over
and had some rotting wood. Eventually, we are going
to try to build up the middle so there is a natural slope,
that way it will
fix these issues
for the future.

VETS: Those who served in
Southeast Asia recognized
From Page 1
"This is a great opportunity to honor our
VVIPs, or very, very important persons
- those Vietnam veterans who are with
us today. Thank you so much for being
here, for your service and for giving us the
opportunity to recognize the contributions
you have made. You served your country
with honor," stated Alexander.
"You made huge sacrifices and served at
a time when it wasn't necessarily popular
to serve in the U.S. military and, frankly,
you weren't treated the way you should
have been treated. But in spite of that, you
served admirably, returned home and you
set the bar for the rest of us, demonstrat-
ing honor, courage and commitment. I am
indebted to all of you. The year I turned 18,
was the last year of the lottery. It was the
downside of the Vietnam War, so I didn't
have the opportunity to serve my country
in that timeframe. But, I would have been
honored to serve alongside each and every
one of you."
Alexander then introduced Crenshaw
who has recognized more than 500
Vietnam veterans in past ceremonies.
"The Vietnam War was one of America's
longest conflicts and one of the most
deadly. Before the war ended over 58,000
Americans died, another 304,000 were
wounded but I don't have to tell you all
the statistics because you were there. A
lot of people say that the Vietnam War
is one of the most misunderstood events
in American history. A lot of you didn't
get the recognition you deserved when you
came back so this is just kind of a small
gesture of our grateful appreciation for all
that you did," remarked Crenshaw.
"This ceremony is long overdue. It's just a
small gesture for us to show our apprecia-
tion for your service and for what you gave
to your country. Upon your return, some
spat on you and put down your good names.
But over the years, you made your influ-
ence known as you took your place in the
fabric of America and went about the task
of rebuilding your lives," he continued.
"Yours was a noble cause and
today we gather to say thank you
for your sacrifices and hardships."
Each individual Vietnam veteran was then
recognized and presented with a certifi-
cate of Special Congressional Recognition
in honor of their service to our country by
Crenshaw and Alexander. One by one, they
proudly accepted their certificates.
"I think this is a fantastic event and I'm

Yes, Navy Hospital Jacksonville will be tobacco-free campus
By Capt. Joe McQuade, MD
NH Jax Director for Public Health ... -. I ... to use their tobacco products else-
Coinciding with the Great
the leadership of Naval
Hospital Jacksonville (NH Jax)
has resolved to become a tobac-
co-free campus beginning Jan. 1,
Commanding Officer Capt.
Bruce Gillingham signed a doc-
ument directing that no one be
allowed to smoke or chew tobacco
on the grounds of NH Jax.
As you'd expect, I have received
many questions from smokers and
non-smokers as to how this may
Q: Why go tobacco free?
A: Tobacco dependence is our
nation's most preventable cause of
death and disease. The decision
to have a tobacco-free hospital
campus supports our commitment
to provide a healthy environment
for our patients and to improve
the health of our community. We
not only provide medical treat-
ment and patient care, but we
work very hard to promote well-
ness and disease prevention. The
goal for all of Navy Medicine is to
become tobacco free someday. We
are heading in this direction.
Q: Describe a "tobacco-free"
A: No tobacco may be smoked
or chewed while within the posted
boundaries of NH Jax or any of
our branch health clinics. This
goes for all active duty service
members, civilian employees and
all visitors -including inpatients
and outpatients. We ask all tobac-
co users to not smoke in their
cars, nor in the parking lots or in
the gazebos on the NH Jax prop-
Q: Is this policy in effect
after hours or only during reg-
Capt. Joe McQuade, MD
ular working hours?
A: This policy is in effect 24/7.
We ask the visitors who come to
see patients or escort patients to
our emergency room after hours
to honor our no-smoking campus.
Q: Why this total ban? Does
it really help anyone?
A: Smoking bans do reduce
heart attack risk. Researchers
found that the risk of having a
heart attack was reduced by more
than 26 percent in studies of
places that had enacted bans on
smoking, versus places that had
no such bans. Caring for patients
means more than just helping you
while you are seen at an appoint-
ment. We know the importance
of setting a good example and we
know the importance of quitting
Q: What should I do when
I see someone smoking on the
A: Gently remind them that
tobacco use is not allowed on the
NH Jax property and direct them
where as designated on the base.
Q: What are you doing at
NH Jax to help staff quit
A: Our tobacco cessation pro-
gram at NH Jax, wellness cen-
ters and branch health clinics is
helping many tobacco users to
quit. We follow more than 3,000
patients per year with pharmaceu-
tical therapy, behavioral therapies
and good old-fashioned moral sup-
port to help them to quit and
stay quitters. In December, our
wellness center is opening its
doors to non-beneficiary employees
who may desire help with medica-
tions and behavioral therapies.
Becoming tobacco free is a great
stride forward for us at NH Jax
and branch health clinics. We
hope all our patients who are
dependent on tobacco products
take a moment out of their day to
consider quitting with us. We are
standing by to help.

Naval Facilities Engineering
Command (NAVFAC) Southeast
will soon be implementing
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
- that measures, collects and analyzes
installation energy usage to potentially
save two percent of energy costs.
The Naval Facilities Engineering Service
Center (NFESC) has formed the structure
and requirements for an integrated AMI
that enables Commander, Navy Region
Southeast (CNRSE) bases, NAVFAC
Southeast and NAVFAC headquarters to
manage utility usage more effectively and
"AMI is a basic building block of the
'Smart Grid' initiatives we have been read-
ing so much about recently," said Tom
Grant with URS Corporation, the design
contractor. "Smart Grid is the wave of
the future in building controls such as
HVAC control. When the meter recognizes
that peak charges are occurring the meter
can tell the thermostat to increase by one
degree in order to save on energy cost."
The American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act (ARRA) program pro-
vided NFESC a way to secure funds that
are now accelerating the implementation
of the Navy AMI Program.
As a result, three design-build con-
tracts were awarded in the fourth quar-
ter of fiscal year (FY) 2009 targeting the
Northwest, Southwest and Southeast
"Here in the Southeast region, Square
D was awarded $23 million in September
to install a comprehensive AMI system
throughout 12 bases to include 2,177
smart meters," said Don Shaver, NAVFAC
Southeast AMI program manager.
He added, "Naval Weapons Station
Charleston, NAS Joint Reserve Base
New Orleans, and NAS Ft. Worth were
not included in this initial ARRA-funded
AMI effort and that Naval Submarine
Base Kings Bay was on the short list to be
added to the ARRA list.
In addition, NFESC is utilizing non-
ARRA funding to implement an AMI sys-
tem in OCONUS locations such as Guam
and in the Southeast at Guantanamo Bay,
"Setting up the AMI program is compli-
cated," said Grant. "It requires a phased
process that involves many people at the
bases that are receiving the new system."
There are four phases to the project. The
first, Initiation or Inception, is where the
team visits the sites to develop the func-
tional requirements. This is accomplished
by sampling current metering programs
and defining the scope of work.
In phase two, the contractor will develop
the final design for the Southeast region
installations, each being unique in terms
of size, location, mission, occupants, envi-
ronment, etc. Specific meter installation
requirements (pipe size, flow rates, indoor
vs. outdoor) will be confirmed when the
contractor develops the design surveys.
Phase three is Implementation. This is
the most visible phase of the project as the
equipment is actually installed.
"Because the primary utility commodity
being metered is electricity, outages may
interrupt computers, lights, air condition-
ing, etc., for short periods of time," said
Shaver. "If an electricity outage is neces-
sary, base personnel will be asked to shut-
down equipment in the affected area as a
precaution to protect the equipment or any
Outages will be closely coordinated
between installation public works and ten-
ant commands to minimize impact to daily
The fourth and final phase is the
Close Out. During this period, the newly
installed meters and system will be tested
"AMI is here and the success of the pro-
gram will rely on everyone's participation,
commitment and support of the project
activities," said Shaver. "The benefits will
include dramatically improved accuracy in
billing for all tenants on our bases and pro-
vision for real-time data that will improve
our ability to generate energy consumption
reductions and consequently life cycle bud-

NEX takes theft seriously
By Kristine M. Sturkie
The Navy Exchange Service
Department takes protecting
Sailors' dollars and preventing
theft in its locations serious-
ly. Theft is a big problem for
all retailers, costing $36.3 bil-
lion last year, according to a joint
study recently released by the
National Retail Federation and
the University of Florida.
NEXCOM's aggressive efforts
to deter and catch theives at
NEXs have been paying off. Over
the past five years, NEXCOM has
seen "inventory shrinkage" or loss
of goods to theft remain below one
percent of sales.
This is a good thing consider-
ing the 2008 University of Florida
National Retail Security Survey
showed the national average
at approximately 1.50 percent
of sales. Shrinkage is the retail
industry term for the difference
between the recorded book inven-
tory and the actual physical
inventory counted at the end of
the year. Shrinkage is generally
attributed to shoplifting, employ-
ee theft, administrative errors or
"When merchandise gets stolen
from the NEX, it hurts not only
our customers and command, it
hurts the Navy as a whole," said
Tom Ruane, NEXCOM loss pre-
tems program manager.
"Seventy percent of NEX prof-
its are given to Navy Morale,
Welfare and Recreation (MWR) to
support quality of life programs.
In 2008, that contribution totaled
over $45 million. When theft and
loss of merchandise occur at the
NEX, profits decline and so do
our contributions to MWR."
Shoplifting losses vary by store
type, but can account for about
one-third of the total invento-
ry shrinkage. According to the
University of Florida statistics,
it is estimated that stealing by
shoppers costs American retailers
a staggering $12.9 billion over the
During 2008, NEXCOM's Loss
investigated and resolved a total
of 1,681 shoplifting cases with a
total dollar amount of $310,243.
"The key to preventing theft in
our locations begins with provid-
ing exceptional customer service
in our stores and continuously
promoting our loss prevention
awareness programs to our asso-
ciates," said Ruane.
"Our associates have the abil-
ity to report internal or external
theft directly to their supervisor,
loss prevention department or
through a confidential Alertline
. . a third-party anonymous tip
In addition to its aware-
ness programs, NEXCOM Loss
Prevention/Safety uses electronic
article surveillance (EAS) sys-
tems for electronic and high-value
merchandise, as well as extensive
closed circuit surveillance sys-
tems (CCTV) at all NEXs world-
"Our CCTV systems, coupled
with digital video recorders, give
us the ability to see everything
within our stores and identify
incidents of theft," said Ruane.
Photo courtesy of NEXCOM
Closed circuit surveillance systems like this one at NEX Norfolk help
NEXCOM loss prevention specialists to minimize shoplifting and other
types of "inventory shrinkage."
"Our EAS systems have been
very successful in preventing
unpaid merchandise from leav-
ing our stores and, at the same
time, allowing our customers to
see and handle merchandise they
are interested in purchasing."
If shoplifting is suspected, NEX
Loss Prevention/Safety associates
turn all incidents over to base
police and/or local law enforce-

ciplinary action and criminal
prosecution, the Federal Claims

work on the
some help working on the vehicles," said
Jadro. "So I enlisted the help of fellow
Sailor and friend, AT3 Erich Kohler. We
put our minds together and figured out
how we could best help them."
With a vast knowledge of military his-
tory and drive to see the outcome of a hard
day's work, Jadro and Kohler recruited
other shipmates using their mechanic abil-
ities to restore several old vehicles, assist
with museum construction projects and
help with special events. They have since
logged more than 400-plus hours volun-
teering at the museum.
"This really is a great project for us.
We are helping the veterans who run and
visit the museum achieve their
dream and it allows us to uti-
lize the skills we have learned
in the Navy to help our local
K community," added Jadro.
The museum features a vast
collection of military items and
was created to honor those
who have served in the Armed
Forces and to help youths
understand the dedication and
sacrifices of our veterans. The
museum also has an exten-
Metcalf sive military reference library
southeast covering the evolution of war-
)me detail fare through the current hos-
front of a utilities in Southwest Asia. This
includes more than 400 vol-
umes that are available for stu-
dents to use for research. The museum is
also developing a "Living History" library
videotaping veterans who have served
their country giving their views of the war
in which they were involved.
The museum is located at 1 Bunker
Avenue in Green Cove Springs, Fla. For

Day Ceremony and Muster

By MC2 Joseph Clark
Naval Special Warfare Group 2 Public Affairs
The National Navy UDT-SEAL
Museum hosted its annual
Veterans Day Ceremony and
Muster XXIV Nov. 7-8 at Fort Pierce,
Guest speaker was Merchant Marine
Capt. Richard Phillips, former skipper of
the MV Maersk Alabama, who was held
captive by pirates off the coast of Somalia
- until being rescued by SEAL snipers
"I am honored to stand here today in
the midst of the true heroes of Naval
Special Warfare," Phillips said.
"Without their training and dedication,
I can honestly say that I would not be
standing here today."
The lifeboat from which Phillips was
rescued, was also on display at the muse-
um for public viewing.
The event, which the museum began
hosting in 1985, consisted of sever-
al activities open to the public, includ-
ing a 5K race, a live auction, an official
Veterans Day Ceremony, and a live capa-
bilities demonstration performed by east
coast-based Navy SEALs.
The event brings in guests from around
the world, according to Ruth McSween,
the museum curator.
"The muster is a great way to get both
the frogmen and the public together to
honor the legacy of
Naval Special Warfare," McSween said.
"The Museum is located on the original
training ground of the Navy's scouts and
raiders. I can't think of a more appropri-
ate location to bring the men of Naval
Special Warfare together because this
is their birthplace. It is great to witness
SEALs visiting such an important place
in their history."
The ceremony concluded on Saturday
with a live capabilities demonstration by
Navy SEALs, that showcased the special-
ized training and ability by Naval Special
Warfare Operators to complete any task at
Attendees were on the edge of their
seats as the SEALs demonstrated a fast-
rope insertion from a hovering helicopter,
and a special insertion and extraction
maneuver, in which the operators quickly
attach themselves to a rope suspended by
a hovering helicopter.
On Sunday members of Naval Special
Warfare and their family members gath-
ered at the coastline, merely steps from
the museum, to honor 52 Navy frogmen,
active duty and retired, who died since
Following the Muster, the museum
board of directors hosted a ground-
breaking ceremony for a new UDT-
SEAL memorial that is to be built on the
grounds of the museum and will feature
the names of all of the men of Naval
Special Warfare who have died in combat
and training exercises.
