'Red Lancers' coming home


After high-tempo

deployment,

VP-10 relocates

By Lt. j.g. Sean Kearney
VP-10 Public Affairs Officer
F following their six-month
deployment to Al Udeid
Air Base in Qatar and a
detachment to Camp Lemonier,
Djibouti, Africa, the 'Red
Lancers' of VP-10 will soon final-
ize their homeport change from
NAS Brunswick, Maine to NAS
Jacksonville.
Safely conducting over 650
mishap-free flights amounting to
more than 4,000 flight hours, the
Red Lancers proved to be expert
operators as they utilized the full
spectrum of P-3 warfare capabili-
ties.
During its split-site deploy-
ment, the squadron conducted
missions in support of Operation
Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation
Enduring Freedom (OEF), mari-
time security operations and
anti-piracy missions to protect
American's maritime interests in


the Arabian Gulf, Gulf of Oman,
the Arabian Sea, Gulf of Aden
and the Indian Ocean. The Red
Lancers conducted multiple joint
military operations and exercises,
established course rules for coali-


tion flight safety, combated pira-
cy, and built diplomatic bridges to
foster international relations.

Area of Responsibility (AOR),
the squadron began operating in
direct support of multiple task
forces to help counter the insur-
gency and improvised explosive
device (IED) operations in Iraq.


VP-10 also supported maritime
security operations involved with
OEF including one combat air-
crew that aided in the seizure and
destruction of more than 10 tons
of illegal narcotics. The crew pro-
vided timely and detailed intel-
ligence to international naval
forces, which allowed them to
apprehend a dhow (an Arab boat)
transporting nearly $70 million
worth of narcotics.
The Red Lancers also flew mul-
tiple sorties in direct support of
USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76)
and USS Nimitz (CVN 68) Strike
Groups, and USS Bataan (LHD 5)
Expeditionary Strike Group.
Unit exercises such as Shamal
0901, 0902 and 1001 allowed
VP-10 to display its capabilities
as a maritime patrol and airborne
intelligence asset supporting
maritime security operations in
the 5th Fleet AOR.
Though equipped to perform
a variety of missions, the P-3C
aircraft flown by the squadron
is primarily an anti-subma-
rine warfare (ASW) platform.

The "Dragonslayers" of HS-11 recent-
ly proved their anti-submarine war-
fare (ASW) prowess at the Atlantic
Undersea Training and Evaluation
Center (AUTEC) at Andros Island,
Bahamas.
This was the squadron's second detach-
ment to the training area this year. HS-11
participated in the bi-annual Submarine
Commander's Course (SCC) fighting
a "mini-war" against three Los Angeles
Class submarines. The Dragonslayers are
currently in work ups, getting ready to
deploy on board USS Enterprise (CVN 65).
"HS-11 was one of the most formidable

assets we've ever seen during SCC ops,"
said one of the SCC evaluators.
The Dragonslayers played the role of
Orange Forces (the adversaries). They
were given seven torpedoes to use against
the Blue Forces (the submarines). The
seven actual torpedo drops and 14 other
simulated shots were all graded successful
by the AUTEC evaluation center.
From the start of the mini-war, HS-11
proved to be the best attack platform in
the ASW arena. On the first day, squad-
ron members fired three simulated torpe-
does, all of which were graded satisfactory
or excellent shots. HS-11 continued with
10 more shots the second day, including
three actual torpedoes. Six more torpe-
does were expended on the third day, all
of which were graded satisfactory or excel-
lent. The Dragonslayers closed out the

Assigned to VU-10, this Douglas JD-1 Invader awaits its next target-towing mission from NAS Jacksonville. (Originally a
USAAF A-26B, it is not to be confused with the B-26 Marauder.) It was flown until the mid-1960s by Navy utility squad-
rons (VU-1, VU-2, VU-3, VU-4, VU-5, VU-7 and VU-10) as a target tug, drone director and general utility aircraft. It was
powered by two Pratt & Whitney R-2800-79 radials.




Could Ipass for a male?


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


B because I grew up with two
older brothers and am now
raising three sons, I some-
times think of myself as an honorary
male. I have endured enough ABCs
recited with burps and have watched
enough hours of big waves on the
Weather Channel that I should be
able to apply for gender credits -sort
of like a college transfer.
And yet my husband, Dustin, tells
me that I don't understand males at
all. He gives the following as exam-
ples. You be the judge.
Case 1 At the beginning of this
month we took our boys to the TD
Garden in Boston to see the Boston
Pops Star Wars Concert. My boys
have been obsessed with Star Wars
for more than a year now, but I final-
ly watched all six episodes of the
movie just a few months ago.
Had we gone to Star Wars in
Concert before that, I might have
mistakenly referred to Luke and
Leia as a couple (they are actually
brother and sister). With my new-
found knowledge, however, I was "in
the know" when we saw a display of
Darth Vadar's original costume out-
side the stadium.
I hitched up the waist of my pants,
just like one of the guys, and said
"Luke, I'm your father" over and over
again. Strangely, the boys ignored
me. When I referred to the display of
snow troopers as clone troopers, three
sets of eyes rolled, in unison.
After the concert, on the way back
to the car, my four boys Ford, Owen,
Lindell and Dustin were giddily
talking over one another about the


montage of the droids when I inter-
rupted to say, "And did anyone else
feel a lump in their throat during the
love song when they showed all those
clips of Hans Solo and Princess Leia?"
Case 2 Two weeks ago, I sat on
the couch doing my crossword puzzle
while the boys watched the Patriots-
Colts game. My two older boys were
rooting for the Colts. My husband was
for the Patriots. At some point they
wanted to know whose side I was on.
I chose the Colts.
My explanation: The royal blue
color of their uniforms and the sim-
plicity of their emblem is visually
appealing. No one paid much atten-
tion to me. I think Dustin might have
even booed me. (In my defense, I also
chose the Colts because the team
brings back fond memories of Owen,
when he was only 3, picking Johnny
Unitas as his favorite player.) So I
asked Dustin why he was rooting for
the Patriots.
Dustin: "I have a lot of respect for
Tom Brady and Bill Belichick and
how he runs the organization."
Me: "So it has nothing to do with
their costumes at all?"
Dustin: Silence.
(Note: Dustin would like me to add
here that it further proves my male
ignorance that I refer to this game
without mentioning the controver-
sial fourth-down coaching decision.
Whatever that means.)
Case 3 At Ford's ninth birthday
party, my only responsibility was to
fulfill my self-imposed tradition of


baking and decorating the cake.
Dustin would handle the rest
- swimming with the boys at the
University of Maine and ordering
pizza. I must say, he did a fantastic
job.
So it was really unfortunate when
I stood up at the busy restaurant to
cut the homemade cake, which had
copious amounts of food coloring in it,
and said, "Oh, just so you boys know,
and because you might want to warn
your parents, sometimes the food col-
oring in the frosting can tint....well,
things....when it's digested."
Dustin's eyes were as big as donuts
as he was vigorously waved his arms,
gesturing for me to stop talking. He
pulled me aside and said, "Sarah, did
you really just tell seven 9-year-old
boys that in public? Really? Do you
know what you've done?"
I didn't know. Now I do. So do the
other diners near us at the restau-
rant. Apparently the idea of blue
frosting tinting one's digestive process
is endlessly funny to third-grade boys.
One boy even said, "I can not wait to
go to the bathroom tomorrow."
Another said, "Make sure my piece
has lots of food coloring in it."
Back at the house, I went up to
my room to escape the ensuing potty
humor while Dustin restored order
amongst the party goers. I think he
eventually got them talking about
sports again. Or Star Wars.
And so, I thought, maybe Dustin is
right. Perhaps I'm hopelessly female
after all.

FROM THE HOMEFRONT


HEY, MONEYCHIC!

Hey, MoneyChic! It's that holiday time of year. I
think of turkey, stuffing and pecan pie but I honest-
ly think my wife is more excited for shopping the day
after. She lives for Black Fi-i.iy and spends hours
pouring over the sales ads. Last year we racked up
quite a credit card bill over the holidays and it's taken
the majority of the year to pay it off. Any tips for my
spender as she hits the sales?
MoneyChic says: Our society puts pressure on us -
through newspaper ads and commercials -about buy-
ing for loved ones over the holidays. Although there
is a new trend forming in our culture that encourages
living within one's means, I would suggest to your
wife that the two of you sit down together (before the
ads arrive) and make a list of everyone for whom you
think you'll be buying a gift.
Next to each name, jot down a price limit. Add
up the total of the amounts you have listed. Is this
amount affordable for your budget? If not, trim down
the number allotted for each person until you find a
reasonable total for your budget. (Remember, home-
made gifts are thoughtful too.)
If you aren't sure what you can afford, you might
want to visit the Website: jeanchatzky.com for an
on-line calculator that suggests gift amounts based
on your income. Or, you might just consider what
amount you could realistically pay off within a month
or two.
Once you decide what you can afford, your wife has
her guidelines for Black Friday and the rest of the
holiday shopping season.
Next year, consider opening a savings account at
your bank or credit union and label it "Holidays."
Every month, transfer over a small amount and by
next holiday season, you'll have a chunk saved for
your Black Fi-i.L.iy shopping. If you think your spouse
will do any on-line shopping, be sure to utilize the
Websites: bradsdeals.com and dealnews.com that
share on-line coupon codes and shopping tips.
Like most military families, there are some shipping
costs associated with sending gifts back home. Before
mailing, check out shipgooder.com to compare the
prices of shipping with the major shipping service pro-
viders. It's worth doing a little homework beforehand
to save in the end. It pays dividends.

Leavitt takes


helm at HS-
From HS-5 Public Affairs i


Cmdr. Mark Leavitt
will assume com-
mand of the HS-5
"Nightdippers" from Cmdr.
Wade McConvey dur-
ing a change of command
ceremony Dec. 9 at NAS
Jacksonville.
Leavitt was born in
Milwaukee, Wis. and grew
up in Atlanta. In May
1993, he graduated from
the Naval Reserve Officer
Training Corps at Virginia
Tech, with a Bachelor of
Arts in political science.
Following a one-year tem-
porary assignment as pub-
lic affairs officer for NAS
Atlanta, he was assigned
to flight training. His
naval aviator training took
place in Pensacola, Fla.
where he was designated
a naval aviator in January
1996. He completed fleet
replacement training in the
SH-60F/HH-60H Seahawk
helicopter at HS-10, NAS
North Island, Calif.
Upon completion of
this training, Leavitt was
forward deployed with
HS-14 on board USS
Independence (CV 62), then
USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63),
both based in Yokosuka,
Japan. During this time, he
deployed frequently around
the Western Pacific, and
made two deployments to
the Arabian Gulf.
Leavitt reported back to
HS-10 in December 1999 as
an instructor pilot, flying
1,000 hours of instructor
time during his three-year
assignment.
In May 2002, he gradu-
ated from the Seahawk


Cmdr. Mark Leavitt


Weapons and Tactics
Instructor course in Fallon,
Nev.
In January 2003, Leavitt
reported to Carrier Air
Wing Two as the helicop-
ter operations officer,
deploying on board USS
Constellation (CV 64)
in support of the opening
months of Operation Iraqi
Freedom and later on board
USS Abraham Lincoln
(CVN 72).
In November 2004, he
reported to HS-2 where he
served as the administra-
tive officer, maintenance
officer, and as a squad-
ron weapons and tactics
instructor, deploying twice
on board USS Abraham
Lincoln (CVN 72) to the
Western Pacific where,
among other things, he
assisted in tsunami relief
efforts in Sumatra.
In February 2007, he
was assigned as a student
in the College of Command
and Staff at the Naval War
College in Newport, R.I.
where he earned a Master's
Degree in National Security
and Strategic studies.
He reported as execu-


5


Cmdr. Wade McConvey


tive officer of HS-5 in
September 2008. Leavitt
has accumulated over 3,500
flight hours.
McConvey took command
of HS-5 in September 2008.
Since then, the squadron's
operations tempo has been
extraordinarily difficult,
encompassing work-ups
and an early 2009 deploy-
ment to 5th Fleet, followed
by a hectic five-month sus-
tainment period preparing
the squadron for a second
deployment in early 2010.
During this time, HS-5
completed more than 1,678
sorties and 4,200 hours of
mishap-free flying under
his command.
McConvey will continue
his already distinguished
career as the chief test pilot
and ultimately the com-
manding officer of Air Test
and Evaluation Squadron
21 (HX-21).
He also finishes his tour
at HS-5 with the distinc-
tion of being one of the first
two rotary wing pilots to be
selected for the Acquisition
Community Major Program
Manager career path.

Friday

By Lt. Daniel Oh
HS-11 PAO

Cmdr. Maximilian Clark assumes
command of HS-11 Friday,
relieving Cmdr. Malachy Sandie
in a 10 a.m. ceremony in Hangar 115 at
NAS Jacksonville. The guest speaker
will be Capt. Kenneth Whitesell, com-
mander, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) One.
Clark, born and raised in Philadelphia,
graduated from the United States Naval
Academy in 1992 with a B.S. in phys-
ics. He received his naval aviator wings
in 1994. Clark's previous tours include
HS-15, VX-1, CVW-9, HS-8 and U.S.
Joint Forces Command. He attended the
Naval War College and received an M.A.
in national security and strategic stud-
ies in 2006. Most recently, Clark served
as the HS-11 "Dragonslayers" executive
officer. During his aviation career, he
has accumulated more than 3,000 flight
hours.
Sandie reported to HS-11 in June
2007, where he served as executive offi-
cer and then commanding officer. He
led the second of back-to-back deploy-
ments on board USS Enterprise (CVN
65) between June and December 2007 in
support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and
Operation Enduring Freedom.
During Sandie's tour, HS-11 was
awarded the second consecutive Battle
"E" Award for combat readiness and
the 2008 Sikorsky Golden Wrench for
excellence in aviation maintenance.
Under his leadership, the Dragonslayers
took advantage of every opportunity


Cmdr. Maximilian Clark


Cmdr. Malachy Sandie
to train with other platforms and joint
assets, including the parajumpers
of the Air Force 23rd Special Tactics
Squadron. HS-11 played an integral
part of the Navy's hurricane relief
efforts in Galveston, Texas following
Hurricane Ike. Sandie's next assign-
ment is to Naval Personnel Command in
Millington, Tenn. where he will assume
the duties of helicopter commander
detailer.
Cmdr. Tony Moreno reports as HS-1 l's
executive officer. He is a 1993 grad-
uate of Norwich University and most
recently served as the Naval Personnel

Safety symposium



attracts area contractors


From Naval Facilities Engineering
Command Southeast Public Affairs
More than 300 contractor part-
ners attended Naval Facilities
Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast's Safety Symposium
Nov. 17 at the University of North Florida
Conference Center to discuss the com-
mand's safety priorities and learn about
corporate safety programs.
"It's time to get back to the basics
and embrace the Navy's program of
Operational Risk Management (ORM),"
said NAVFAC Southeast's Commanding
Officer Capt. Doug Morton in a letter invit-
ing area contractor partners to attend the
event.
NAVFAC's Safety Manager Dr. Dave
Folk and Acquisition Director Renee
Comfort spoke with the group about safety
mishaps and how the command will modify
their technical factors to emphasize safety
when selecting contractors to work with
them.
While the overall mishap rates for
NAVFAC Southeast employees and its con-
tractor partners is much lower than indus-
try averages, in recent months the com-
mand experienced two tragic fatalities.
"There is no activity that NAVFAC per-
forms or administers where benefits out-
weigh risks of loss of life," said NAVFAC
Commander and Chief of Civil Engineers
Rear Adm. Greg Shear in a letter to
NAVFAC leadership.
Morton stressed that engagement from


corporate leadership makes a substantial
positive impact in the safety performance
of companies doing work for the Navy.
One contractor, Mortensen, Inc., spoke
on their extensive safety program and
shared their experiences to help other con-
tractors develop a successful program.
"What is a zero injury culture?" said
Gary Peak, director of environmen-
tal, health and safety for Mortenson
Construction based out of Minneapolis,
Minn.
Peak discussed attributes to build a safe-
ty culture that includes shared attitudes,
values and practices toward safety. He
believes that to have a strong safety cul-
ture, everyone on the project must share
the same attitude, value and practices
towards zero injuries.
A culture change is a change in lifestyle
for everyone and it includes safety at home
and at work.
During the nearly four-hour event,
NAVFAC Southeast's Commanding Officer
Capt. Doug Morton shared his thoughts on
creating and maintaining a safe working
environment. He also discussed ways that
NAVFAC can help to better define stan-
dards of safety, and took questions and
comments from the attendees.
"We received over 100 comment cards,"
said Morton.
"This was an excellent program," said
Sid Allison, senior program manager with
Agviq/CH2M-Hill of Isle of Palms, S.C.,
and a contractor who currently works on
Navy projects. "We all learned something."

Members of the VP-10 "Red Lancers" gather with a group of U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen during their visit to Djibouti,
Africa as part of the Midshipmen Summer Training Program.

VP-10: Coming off deployment to a new home base


From Page 1


allowed them to maintain previously
unseen levels of proficiencies and
qualifications while on a "desert"
deployment. A tactical ASW exer-
cise was held with the Nimitz strike
group to measure the squadron's and
strike group's joint capabilities, skill
levels and preparedness.
While deployed to Al Udeid Air
Base, the Red Lancers forged rela-
tionships with the U.S. Air Force,
which operates the base. VP-10


In Djibouti, squadron personnel made
regular visits to a boys' orphanage where
basketball and soccer were the sports of
choice. The Red Lancers also supplied cloth-
ing and other necessities.


worked with Air Force personnel to coordinate the Red
Lancers Maintenance Department relocation from perma-
nent facilities into expeditionary facilities.
Spearheaded by VP-10, the new maintenance facilities
were constructed mainly by members of the squadron dur-
ing off-duty hours. This large evolution simplified the base's
VP deployment transition process. VP-1, the relief squadron
for VP-10, was the first to use the new facilities. The Red
Lancers received material assistance as well as construc-
tion and infrastructure installment help from the Air Force,
which helped to further understanding of the forces' differ-
ences of operations. VP-10 left the maintenance facility fully
operational, greatly enhancing VP-1's ability to perform
effectively from the start of their deployment.
Deploying to an Air Force base also provided the squad-
ron with several social and competitive opportunities.
Besides sharing common facilities such as berthing and
galleys, the groups shared inter-service athletic rivalries
where the Red Lancers established their appetite for
winning. The July 4th Freedom Festival Championship
consisted of "picnic games" where the Red Lancers' deter-
mination and skills took the trophy. In August, the base
Commander's Cup competition began with VP-10 heavily
involved in the good natured rivalry. At the close of the
competition in September, VP-10 secured the champion-
ship by defeating an Air Force team in a heated battle
of ultimate Frisbee. The Commander's Cup Trophy was
presented by Al Udeid Air Base Commander Brig. Gen.
Stephen Wilson.
In the "biggest loser" weight-loss competition, two Red
Lancers placed second and third while the squadron lost a
combined 2,500 pounds. These competitive events served
to boost squadron morale, pride and unity as well as fos-
ter friendships between the Navy and Air Force.
Red Lancers in U.S. 6th Fleet (AFRICOM)
VP-10 flew missions in support of OEF and maritime
security operations in the 6th Fleet AOR. One of many
Red Lancers objectives was to help counter the influence
of Al Qaeda throughout the Horn of Africa and to slow the
prevalence of piracy in the region. Piracy has become the
main focus of the AOR, as several notable events made
international news.
The Red Lancers operated primarily out of Camp
Lemonier in Djibouti, Africa. This small nation is well-
suited geographically for multi-national maritime security
operations as it is located on the Gulf of Aden near the
southern entrance to the Red Sea. Coincidentally, the Red
Lancers shared the ramp with P-3 Orions of three other
nations Germany, Spain and Japan and participated
in true coalition building that strengthened the friend-
ships between allied nations.
VP-10 pilots acknowledged the hazards of operating
from such a remote site, which spurred their creation of
"course rules" a set of procedures for approaching the
airfield that facilitated safe operations. Course rules were
necessary due to the lack of radar at the facility, poor nav-
igational aids in the region, and language barriers inher-
ent with coalition joint operations.
The Red Lancers also provided direct maintenance and
mission support to the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense
Force (JMSDF), because their presence in Djibouti is the
first forward-deployed Japanese military force in over 60
years. VP-10 aircrews helped indoctrinate other coalition
crews on the unique missions and geography of the region.
In the coalition's war against piracy, a steady flow of
information between the allied nations proved invaluable.
Besides working together, several social events within the
maritime patrol community fostered many new friend-
ships and professional bonds. Also, cross-flights helped
the different aircrews understand the capabilities and
attributes of other nations' aircraft.
Accomplishments by the Red Lancers in the 6th Fleet
AOR will pay dividends as they are relieved by VP-26 in
the crucial war against a new breed of terrorists.
Superior Maintainers
With one of the best maintenance departments in the
maritime patrol and reconnaissance community, the Red
Lancers' mission completion record stands near 100 per-
cent. Squadron maintainers rise to every readiness chal-
lenge whether it's a complete engine change, an elec-
tronics system problem or an errant fault indication to

allow squadron operators to excel.
Despite a sandy, hostile environ-
ment, maintainers' steadfast dedi-
cation allowed the squadron to add
training exercise flights to improve
the already excellent reputa-
tion of the Red Lancers. As VP-16
Commanding Officer Cmdr. James
Robinson said, "We can't do any-
thing without good birds. We can't
get on station, we can't do missions.
We are nothing without our mainte-
nance department."


Community Relations
In addition to the military operations, VP-10 took great
pride in building community relationships within their
host nations. Many events were organized by the squad-
ron to represent both the United States and the Navy
with pride, professionalism and compassion. In Doha (the
capital of Qatar), Red Lancers' Flight Surgeon, Lt. Melissa
Darlington, held several breast cancer awareness briefs to
the benefit of many women.
In Djibouti, squadron visits to a boys' orphanage led to
many pick up soccer and basketball games while building
friendships. At a local baby orphanage, Sailors provided
diapers, bottles and clothing and other supplies. They also
volunteered three to four days a week to help feed, change
and play with the children.
In another initiative, VP-10 was able to solicit a massive
donation of 270 boxes of clothing from Carter's Inc., a pop-
ular children's clothing retailer. The clothes, filling nearly
eight cargo pallets, were distributed to the rural residents
of the African nation.
Job Well Done
In addition to operational requirements, the Red
Lancers conducted an unprecedented amount of training.
The squadron designated 10 officers as mission command-
ers.
Seven officers qualified as patrol plane commanders,
those naval aviators responsible for the safety of the air-
craft and its crew.
Six officers qualified as tactical coordinators, who direct
the utilization of sensors, aircraft systems, and crewmem-
bers for maximum mission effectiveness.
Three junior naval flight officers qualified as navigator/
communicator.
Among the enlisted members of the squadron, 26 quali-
fied as enlisted aviation warfare specialists, three as qual-
ity assurance representatives and 35 as collateral duty
inspectors. Among the enlisted aircrew, one qualified as a
flight engineer, one as a sensor station three, and two oth-
ers as in-flight technicians.
The Red Lancers will redeploy well ahead in overall
pilot training, a key marker for squadron readiness. This
is considered a tremendous achievement and will pay divi-
dends as the squadron returns to its new home in Hangar
1000 at NAS Jacksonville to prepare for its next deploy-
ment.

final day of the mini-war with an actual torpedo drop that
was also graded excellent.
Overall, the squadron achieved five excellent and 15
satisfactory shots on the submarines. This incredible rate
of success was due to the outstanding performance by the
professional Dragonslayer ASW crews and the superb
troubleshooting and technical skills of the HS-11 main-
tainers.
Crews and maintainers were able to keep three fully
mission capable aircraft operating at the edge of their tac-
tical envelope throughout the detachment.
This was the second time HS-11 took part in the SCC.
In 2008, the Dragonslayers fired five actual torpedoes
with a 100 percent success rate.
On the final day of the detachment, the men and women
of HS-11 held a picnic on the beach to celebrate their suc-
cess. "It was a great picnic, and a great way to end a very
successful detachment," said Lt. Cmdr. Shannon Moore.

with periods of service ranging from
one to 35 years. Present were former
storekeepers, artillerymen, deck sea-
men, metal smiths, plane mechan-


ics and a Green Beret Special Forces
colonel.
Shaffield thanked the veterans for
their service and sacrifice stating that
country owes a special debt of grati-
tude to the members of the "Greatest
Generation," those who served during
the second World War.
Among those present from that era,
was Jack Atkinson, who served as
a 1st Class Seaman on board USS
Taluga, a fleet oiler. Atkinson was
injured in a kamikaze attack on that
ship off the Island of Okinawa in
1945 and mustered out of the service
due to his injuries.
Shaffield also presented a flag to
the veteran's group to use during
their group meetings.
"I extend to all of you my personal
thanks and the heartfelt appreciation
of our nation for all that you have
done in the name of liberty," Shaffield
said.


Holiday Driving Tips
From Navy Safety Center
Yes, it's a no-brainer don't drink and drive. Every year,
23,000 people die because someone else didn't follow this
rule. If you plan to drink, plan your transportation in advance.
Do not drive if you are tired.
Keep your car in good condition. Make sure your tires,
brakes, headlights and taillights, and turn signals are all
working.
Obey the speed limit. In rain, snow, fog and darkness -
slow down.
Stay aware of the drivers around you. If you see an erratic
driver, don't get angry get away from them.
Be careful at intersections. The average American driver
is mediocre. Don't assume others are going to do the right
thing especially red light runners.
Keep your children in car safety seats and they are
properly installed.
Drive defensively Obey the rules and be predictable.
Use caution, as well as your signals, when turning or
changing lanes.
Use cell phones with caution. Pull over if you can, or limit
your calls to emergencies.
If your car has an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and you
must brake hard because of an obstacle, be sure to press
the brake pedal and hold, as you gently steer around the
obstacle.

'Train to fight, fight to win'


By Joy Samsel
Naval Education and
Training Command Public Affairs

''W e are con-
/ stantly flexing
to respond to
the changing requirements
of the fleet, our inter-
service partners, and our
allies," said the command-
er of Naval Education
and Training Command
(NETC) Dec. 1 at the
Interservice/Industry
Training, Simulation and
Education Conference in
Orlando, Fla.
Rear Adm. Joseph
Kilkenny, a naval aviator
with more than 800 carri-
er-arrested landings, cited
the command's flexibility to
meet the needs of the fleet.
The address was part
of the general/flag officer
panel which offered par-
ticipants an opportunity to
talk about how their orga-
nizations support military
missions, as reflected in the
conference theme, "Train to
Fight, Fight to Win."
"We must gain more
proficiency and our stu-
dents more expertise in
less time to keep up with
the rapidly evolving chal-
lenges throughout the


Commander, Naval Education
and Training Command
Rear Adm. Joseph Kilkenny

world," Kilkenny said.
"The technology on display
throughout this conference
is indeed impressive, but
we all acknowledge that it
is our people who enable
our services to be com-
bat-ready. We go to great
lengths to select training
instructors who can teach,
and we select those best
suited to learn and devel-
op into the most combat
ready Sailors, Soldiers,
Marines, Coast Guardsmen
and highly technical and
challenging positions."
Kilkenny gave a brief over-
view of the Navy training
domain, which includes
more than 19,000 military


and civilian staff who pro-
vide training at more than
230 subordinate activities
around the world.
More than 35,000 stu-
dents take part in Navy
training on any given
day, and NETC logged
more than 615,000 gradu-
ations in fiscal year 2008,
including students from
the Navy, Marine Corps,
Army, Air Force, and Coast
Guard. The U.S. Navy also
trains more than 12,000
international students from
more than 150 countries
each year.
We identify Sailors
knowledge, skills and abili-
ties required to be success-
ful at a job, task or func-
tion, and design training to
respond to those require-
ments as they are deter-
mined by the fleet."
He explained that change
to Navy Training will con-
tinue because the missions
of the Navy continue to
change.
"In support of the


expanded role for Sailors
on the ground Overseas
Contingency Operations,
our Center for Security
Forces has adapted train-
ing to meet the demands
for individual augmentees
in Iraq and Afghanistan,
and other parts of the
world," Kilkenny said. "The
understanding of foreign
cultures, customs and lan-
guages is a direct joint force
multiplier that enables
service members to sus-
tain our long-standing alli-
ances and forge new rela-
tionships with emerging
partners. For Sailors, the
Navy achieves this under-
standing through train-
ing in language, regional
expertise and culture at
our Center for Information
Dominance." Kilkenny
further explained the devel-
opment of training begins
with the weapons and plat-
forms the Navy purchases.
"We must work closely
with you in the defense
development and construc-


tion arena to ensure when
we buy a system, the train-
ing is developed in paral-
lel and fully supports the
Sailors and joint service
partners in the mission
required of the system
delivered."
Looking at the future,
NETC is partnering
with the Office of Naval
Research and the Defense
Advanced Research
Projects Agency (DARPA)
on a project called Digital
Tutor. This adaptive tutor
project leverages off of
Silicon Valley informa-
tion technology experts to
attempt to model how best
to train the next generation
of cyber warfare experts.
"As we move forward,
technology will continue to
play an important role in
Navy Training, but there
are important parameters
that must be maintained,"
Kilkenny stressed. "Our
computer and software sys-
tems, including those for
use in the electronic class-


rooms, must be compatible
with NMCI. And just like
any business, our comput-
er systems must be secure.
This means all computers
and software must meet
our information assurance
criteria."
Kilkenny tempered his
comments with the real-
ity of fiscal constraints, and
explained this is a chal-
lenge to both industry and
the Armed Services.
"How can industry deliv-
er highly technical, complex
and secure solutions at a
price that the services can
afford," asked Kilkenny. "
NETC will continue to work
closely with the fleet to
determine the best train-
ing to support their needs,"
Kilkenny said. "The train-
ing we provide America's
Sailors and our joint ser-
vice partners is outstand-
ing if not, there wouldn't
be 150 nations knocking at
our door to send their mili-
tary members through our
courses.

Finding true love (part 2)


By Chaplain (It.) Justin Top

For any relationship to last,
it must be built on a solid
foundation of love. Love
does not just happen. It must be
planted, cultivated and nurtured.
Unfortunately, many mistake the
impersonator of love, infatuation,
for true love.
The fires of infatuation may
ignite quickly into an uncon-
trolled blaze of passion, but they
also quickly extinguish from
selfish suffocation. Though true
love takes much more effort and
patience to kindle and maintain,
it can burn brightly for as long as
it is continually fed.
From the moment you begin
a relationship there will be an
urge to let it consume your life
and take control of your will. It is
normal for relationships to begin
as infatuation (though you will
convince yourself that it is love),
but it is important that you main-
tain self control so that love may
begin to grow. True love is not
simply an emotion. It is a lifestyle
that you must commit to contin-
ually. For love to grow, you will
have to learn to sacrifice some
of the things that fuel the fire of
infatuation. Maintaining control
of the relationship is especially


CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


important in the early stages of
romance since you are establish-
ing patterns of behavior that will
affect your future. Here are some
important things you can do in
the early stages of the relationship
to make sure it is built on a solid
foundation.
GET A LIFE. We have all had
friends who get into a relation-
ship and then it seems like they
never want to do any of the same
things they used to. All they want
to do is be with their significant
other. Infatuation can become like
a drug addiction and can consume
a person's thoughts and desires. It
can get to the point that they don't
care about anything but the rela-
tionship. It is very easy for this to
happen in any budding relation-
ship, but when a couple isolates
themselves, the relationship will
begin to stagnate. Such relation-
ships breed obsession, jealousy,
and neediness, all of which are
enemies of love. You need to get
a life outside of each other. Make
sure you maintain your friend-
ships, do fun things with other
people, continue to develop talents
and pursue dreams. Entering into


Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top


a relationship doesn't mean that
you need to leave the rest of your
life behind.
BRIDLE YOUR PASSIONS. It
takes absolutely no love to give to
your sexual impulses. Infatuation
encourages you to surrender to
what you want right now. Love
sacrifices what you want for what
is best. Movies and TV shows
often promote the idea that sex-
uality is the key to a relation-
ship. While physical intimacy is


important in a relationship, if it
is misused it can actually damage
a couple's ability to create emo-
tional intimacy. When detached
from true love, trust, and com-
mitment, sex can blind a person
to the real nature of their rela-
tionship. It fuels infatuation and
selfishness that can shorten the
life of the relationship. "Making
love" doesn't actually "make" love.
Don't let physical intimacy become
the center of your relationship,
but rather the result of taking the
time to build a solid foundation of
love.
BE OLD FASHIONED. Back
in the "good old days" relation-
ships developed slowly. People
went on formal dates, met par-
ents, and knew in advance the
"steps" that a relationship should
go through to progress to mar-
riage. There was a gradual devel-
opment of physical intimacy over
time as respect, trust, and devo-
tion increased.
Today, relationships often
develop quickly and informally.
Couples will meet in a "hanging
out" kind of environment and
then jump into a full-blown rela-


tionship where they act as though
they know and love each other,
but in truth the relationship is
very shallow.
Studies show that "hanging out
and hooking up" causes a multi-
tude of problems. I'm not saying
that you have to invite your par-
ents along for the first few dates,
but you should make a plan to
develop your relationship over a
period of time. Make sure that
the time you spend together and
the level of intimacy (physical and
emotional) start small and gradu-
ally increases as trust and respect
grow.
EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS.
Many couples end up doing much
the same thing every time they
are together (which is usually
often). Activities such as lying on
the couch watching a movie or TV,
drinking together, etc. are com-
mon activities because they are
so easy but they will poison a
relationship. Get out and do new
things together. If you want your
relationship to grow, you need
to stretch it. Get creative. Love
takes effort. The more different
experiences you have together, the
stronger your foundation will be.
Your relationship should make
you better and push you to expand
your horizons.

Despite fewer



vacancies, more



than 17,000



Sailors advance

From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs
More than 17,000 Sailors will see their names
on the fall advancement list when the Navy
releases the E-4, E-5 and E-6 list.
In his most recent podcast, released Dec. 1, Vice
Adm. Mark Ferguson chief of naval personnel, dis-
cusses petty officer advancement and trends.
"It took a little bit longer to work through the num-
bers this time," said Ferguson. "We looked very care-
fully at a change in behavior that's taking place in the
force. We are seeing significantly lower attrition and
losses. More Sailors in the junior ranks are staying in
the Navy."
The Navy's unprecedented retention and record low
attrition means fewer vacancies in the E-4 and E-5
rates for Sailors to advance and resulted in the first
decline in overall opportunity in the last four exam
cycles, changing from 24.53 percent last cycle to 19.86
percent this cycle. "We're going to promote 3,300
Sailors to E-6, which equates to a rate that's slightly
up at about 11 percent, or 1.5 percent [points] higher
than the last cycle," said Ferguson.
For E-5s, Ferguson said 6,500 Sailors will be
advanced across the Navy. That represents a slight
decrease of about 2.5 percentage points from last
cycle, but results in an overall advancement rate of
about 19.5 in this paygrade.
"For the E-4s, where we have seen the most signifi-
cant change in behavior, that advancement rate will
be about 34.5 percent," said Ferguson. "This means
7,300 individuals will promote to E-4."
More junior Sailors are staying Navy, taking advan-
tage of the comprehensive benefits that are available.
As a result, 2,500 fewer E-4 vacancies were open for
E-3s to advance to than would have been predicted
based on historical behavior. While the Navy con-
tinues to advance to vacancy it will also target the
best and brightest for advancement, according to
Ferguson.
"The quality of our force is extraordinary," he said,
pointing out that the Navy is seeing positive trends
with fewer boot camp losses and higher quality appli-
cants coming into the Navy.

SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE



Holiday connections



with the troops


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor


With Thanksgiving behind us the
countdown to Christmas has
begun! If you have not sent a
care package to your service member now
is the time to move that project to the top
of the list.
Once we ship a package for our service
member at the local post office it is sent to
a military postal center (for instance, APO
stands for Army Post Office, FPO: Fleet
Post Office). Our package will sit there till
the next military lift to the theatre where
our service member is deployed. This can
be a few days or weeks. Further, it will be
sent on a 'space available basis' as mis-
sion critical shipments (supplies) get prior-
ity. A tip I learned from the FPO in San
Francisco was to send multiple smaller
packages instead of one large package as
they can fill containers more easily.
The post office will provide free ship-
ping materials for packages sent to a mili-
tary address. The USPS has assembled
a Military Care Package Kit with boxes,
shipping forms, and address labels. Please
call 1-800-610-8734 (Packing and Supply).
After choosing your language choose option
number one. When you reach a live agent
request CAREKIT04. You may want to
check out www.usps.com/supportthetroops
for additional information and tips on
international shipping.
According to the United Service
Organization (USO) the number one
requested item is prepaid phone cards. If
your service member is deployed to Iraq,
Afghanistan, Kuwait, Djibouti or other
military bases or ships the type of call-
ing card you send is important. Call cen-
ters established for military service mem-
bers supporting OEF (Operation Enduring
Freedom Afghanistan) or OIF (Operation
Iraqi Freedom) are built and maintained
by AT&T. Calling cards other than AT&T
can result in delayed connections which
add additional per-minute charges.


International rates can differ widely from
domestic rates and from carrier to carrier.
AT&T calling cards provide your service
member with the best opportunity to con-
nect with friends and family. AT&T inter-
national calling cards are available at your
local NEX or Post Exchange (AAFES).
The next most requested item is gift
cards for the AAFES (Army Air Force
Exchange Service) or NEX exchange.
Sending a gift card enables service mem-
bers to purchase much-needed items at
an exceptional savings. They are eas-
ily mailed in an envelope as opposed to a
package that may take longer for your ser-
vice member to receive.
Finally I want to make you aware of
AT&T's "Help our Troops Call Home" pro-
gram. Through the program any indi-
vidual may purchase or send phone
cards by calling (800) 527-2345 or log on
at www.aafes.org and clicking the "Help
Our Troops Call Home" link. More infor-
mation is available at www.att.com/mili-
tary. This program offers prepaid phone
cards that can be earmarked for indi-
vidual service members or distributed
to "any service member" through the Air
Force Aid Society, American Red Cross,
Fisher House Foundation, Navy-Marine
Corps Relief Society, United Service
Organization (USO), and Soldier & Family
Assistance Center (SFAC).
The AAFES site is available to the gen-
eral public and provides access to the only
cards designed for use with the private
communications network built for AAFES
and used in all AT&T phone centers.
I want to leave you with a resource to
enhance your holiday season. Please check
out Trees for Troops (www.treesfortroops.
org) for an opportunity to pick up a free
Christmas tree. Distribution locations are
available near military installations across
the country. Next week I have a list of
great and economical gift ideas!

Winter holidays are a time for families and friends to get together.
But that also means a greater risk for fire. Following a few simple
tips will ensure a happy and fire-safe holiday season.


I4 HOLIDAY DECORATING
I) Be careful with holiday decorations. Choose
decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant.
fl) Keep lit candles away from decorations and other
things that can burn.
I3) Use lights that have the label of an independent
testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor
or outdoor use, but not both.
I)) Replace any string of lights with worn or broken
cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more
than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum
of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs.
III Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do
not get damaged.
II) Keep decorations away from windows and doors.

HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING
Il) Test your smoke alarms and tell guests about your
home fire escape plan.
III Keep children and pets away from lit candles.
Ill Keep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet.
III Stay in the kitchen when cooking on the stovetop.
I)) Ask smokers to smoke outside. Remind smokers to
keep their smoking materials with them so young
children do not touch them.
II) Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers. Wet
cigarette butts with water before discarding.

ASK DR JOE


What's on the menu


for pregnant moms?


By Capt. Joe McQuade
NH Jax Director of Public Health


Q: I recently found out that I am
pregnant. Is it true that I have to
eat for two?
A: According to the International Food
Information Council
Foundation, preg-
nant women only
require a 15 percent
increase in their
daily caloric intake -
which equates to an
additional 300 calo-
ries per day.
If you are expect-
ing more than one
child, you should dis-
cuss your accurate
nutrition require-
ments with a trained
healthcare provider.
Q: I'm a vegan
who is pregnant. Do
I have to start eat- ^ ,.
ing meat so my baby '
will get the nutrients
he needs to develop Capt. Joe
properly?
A: No, but you do need to schedule an
appointment with a registered dietitian in
order to make sure you diet includes an
adequate amount of protein rich foods.
Examples of protein rich foods for vegans
are nuts, hummus, any variety of beans
and even whole grains have a good amount
of protein.
The most complete source of vegan pro-
tein is soy which comes in many forms,
from soy milk to tofu.
To recap, you can maintain your vegan
diet but you must see a registered dietitian
in order to insure that you and your baby
are receiving adequate protein from your
current food choices.
Q: I am 30 and pregnant with my first
child, how much weight should I gain?
A: The Institute of Medicine published
an article in May 2009 that re-examined
the guidelines for pregnancy weight gain.


They determined that the weight gain
during pregnancy should be determined
by your pre-pregnancy body mass index or
BMI.
BMI is a measure that indicates your
body fat, based on your height and weight.
Based on pre-
pregnancy BMI, the
pounds of weight
gain are as follows:
BMI<18.5 (28-40
4 pounds); BMI 18.5 to
24.9 (25-35 pounds);
f BMI 25 to 29.9 (15-
S 25 pounds); BMI
>30 (11-20 pounds);
Twin Gestation-any
BMI (35-45 pounds);
Triplet Gestation-
any BMI (50 pounds).
For up-to-date
weight gain infor-
mation, be sure to
keep your prena-
tal appointments
and talk with sup-
McQuade port staff to ensure
you are meeting the
nutritional and weight gain needs of your
unborn child.
Q: Should I exercise while I am preg-
nant?
A: Yes, exercise is an important part
of a healthy pregnancy. But before you
begin, get cleared by your doctor, so you
can design an exercise routine with the
modifications you and your doctor discuss.
Points to remember are: avoid exercis-
es that have you lie on your back when
you are in mid-pregnancy; avoid heavy
weights during your third trimester; avoid
hot tubs, saunas or any thing that might
extremely elevate your core temperature
(see your obstetrician or other healthcare
professional for specific details); focus on
pregnancy appropriate abdominal and
back exercises; and incorporate pregnancy
approved stretching into your program (see
a pregnancy certified trainer).

Coping with holiday stress
r __ I ,_i _- J '-_t_- ___


From the iNaval SaTety Cener

Have a realistic plan. This will reduce
the strain of juggling tasks, duties, errands
and appointments.
Stick to your lists and your budget.
Overspending is a common source of
Christmas stress. Remember that the
point of the season is to show care, not to
simply consume.
Learn how to say "no" to less impor-
tant activities. Be selective. Don't over-
schedule. If you limit yourself to two social
events per week, you won't run down your


batteries.
Plan parties or shopping trips with
family and friends, in order to cut down on
the number of events and responsibilities.
Schedule some "down time" to use for
rest and reflection.
Keep your sense of humor.
Establish your own standards, and
don't be governed by other's expectations
or demands.
Don't skip meals or live on snacks
because you are too busy.
Don't sacrifice your exercise program
as you get busier.

Holiday season


fire safety tips

From NAS lax Fire Prevention Division
The Christmas holiday season is now upon us. Christmas
trees, decorative lights, candles, individuals smoking at parties
all increase the likelihood of a fire in your home. To help
everyone enjoy a fire safe holiday season, we recommend that
you follow these holiday season fire safety tips:
Christmas trees
When buying a fresh-cut tree, make sure it is fresh. When
the trunk of a tree is bounced on the ground, a shower of needles
shows that the tree is too dry and a greater fire risk.
Cut the trunk at an angle at least one to two inches above
the end to help the tree absorb water. Place the tree in a non-tip
stand filled with water. Place the stand well away from exits, your
home traffic pattern and sources of heat. Check and maintain
water level on a daily basis.
When buying an artificial tree, make sure it is labeled or
otherwise identified or certified by the manufacturer as being
"flame retardant" or "flame resistive."
Holiday lights and decorations
Use only UL or other safety-tested lights. Check markings on
light sets for "indoor" or "outdoor" use and display accordingly.
Check light sets, new and old, for broken or cracked sockets,
frayed or bare wires, and loose connections. Replace worn and
broken light sets.
Do not overload extension cords. Check and follow
manufactures recommendations for multiple light connections.
Do not connect more than three standard size sets of lights per
single extension cord.
Do not use electrical decorations or lights on metal Christmas
trees.
Turn off all lights on trees and other decorations before
you retire for the evening or leave your home. Remember, an
electrical "short" can and will start a fire.
Use only flame-retardant or non-combustible decorations.
Candles
Place candles away from Christmas trees, combustible
decorations, displays, curtains or drapes.
Place candles in areas where they cannot be knocked or
blown over.
Always use candle holders that are sturdy, won't tip over
easily, and made of a non-combustible material.
Never leave burning candles unattended or within the reach
of small children.
Always extinguish candles before you leave the house or
retire for the evening.
Ensure matches and lighters are kept out of the reach of
children.
Portable electric heaters
Use only a portable electric heater that carries the label of
an independent testing laboratory (UL or FM).
Ensure portable electric heater is equipped with an automatic
shutoff feature "tip over" switch (unit turns off if knocked over).
Keep portable electric heaters at least three feet away from
any combustible material.
General fire safety
Do not burn gift-wrappings or trees in the fireplace. Flames
can get out of control and spread embers around the room.
Equip your home with a portable UL listed ABC (all purpose)
rated fire extinguisher.
Provide individuals smoking with large, deep, non-tip
ashtrays.
Empty ashtrays often, wetting their contents before dumping
them.
After a party, check cushions, around furniture and on the
floor for smoldering cigarette or cigar butts.
Test your smoke detector at least monthly.
Have a fire escape plan. Dial "911" in case of an emergency.

many in Northeast Florida as the "snake man," is an expert in treating poisonous bites.



Teen driving class Dec. 30


From NAS lax Safety Office


Statistically speaking, new drivers are more likely
to be involved in an accident or receive a ticket
within the first 12 months of getting a driver's
license. As a parent of a new driver, that can cause a lot
of worry and sleepless nights. What can you do about it?
The NAS Jax Safety Office offers a driver improvement
class specifically for young drivers between the age of
15 and 21 years old. They do not have to have a driver's
license to attend.
The class will be held Dec. 30 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in
Building 1 on Yorktown Avenue.
Participants will learn safety tips and how to respond to
driving emergencies as well as increasing awareness of
other driving risks and much more. There will be videos,
quizzes and a multiple-choice test. There will not be any
time behind the wheel only a classroom session. Each
participant will receive a AAA Driver Improvement Class
completion certificate.


If you want your teen to learn from expert driving
coaches, call Linda Doktor at 542-3082 to register.
