'Pelicans' fly home for the holidays

By Lt. j.g. Chelsea Brunoehler
VP-45 Public Affairs Officer I I


Hundreds of family mem-
bers and shipmates
turned out at NAS
Jacksonville Hangar 1000
Dec. 10 to celebrate the VP-45
"Pelicans" homecoming from its
six-month, dual-site deployment
to Japan and El Salvador.
To the delight of the welcoming
party, the P-3C piloted by VP-45
Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Andrew Smith performed a fly-
over before landing and being
greeted by a water arch courte-
sy of the NAS Jacksonville Fire
Department.
After greeting his wife and
daughters, Smith told television
reporters covering the homecom-
ing, "I'm pleased we got every-
body home before Christmas. In
addition to being with our fami-
lies, the best thing about deploy-
ment is coming home with a
strong sense of accomplishment."
"We performed anti-submarine
warfare exercises supporting
the U.S. 7th Fleet in the Pacific.
On the other side of the world,
we played a strong role in the
U.S. 4th Fleet drug interdictions
throughout the Caribbean," said

Smith.
According to VP-45 Executive
Officer Mike Doherty, the squad-
ron's 375 personnel (including
12 combat aircrews) operated 10
P-3C Orion aircraft in support of
7th Fleet and 4th Fleet operations.
Of those aircraft, three
(two from El Salvador and one
from Japan) returned to NAS
Jacksonville for scheduled main-
tenance, with the remaining air-
craft being transferred to their
relief squadron.


"During deployment, we
were able to exchange aircrews
between the two theaters, which
gave them experience operat-
ing over both Caribbean and
Pacific waters. We also par-
ticipated in numerous combined
exercises with military partners
from Australia, Brunei, Japan,
Thailand, Singapore, South
Korea, Philippines, Indonesia and
Ecuador," said Doherty.
Since late May, the Pelicans
maintained their deployment hub


of eight crews and six aircraft in
Okinawa, Japan, while simulta-
neously supporting four crews
and four aircraft in El Salvador.
VP-45's Japan-based crews flew
more than 2,600 hours in sup-
port of 7th Fleet, operating from
bases in Thailand, Australia,
Brunei, Singapore, South
Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, the
Philippines and Guam. Those
exercises included operations
Talisman Saber, Carat, Lungfish
and Tamex.


El Salvador-based crews flew
more than 1,600 hours of coun-
ter-drug operations and air-to-air
interdiction missions in support
of operations Caper Focus, Carib
Shield, Bird Strike and Lost
Horizon.
All together, the Pelicans sur-
passed 247,000 mishap-free hours
while in support of more than 20
exercises.
Both deployment sites main-

It's always a proud moment when a
new Navy aircraft takes to the skies.
For the pilots behind the controls, the
feeling can approach euphoria. Lt. Roger
Stanton was privileged to be the first
Navy test pilot to fly the P-8A Poseidon
this past October.
"It was an awesome feeling," said
Stanton. "The first time you fly a new air-
plane is simply a great experience. This is


what test pilots are trained to do, so get-
ting this rare opportunity was really amaz-
ing."
Stanton, along with Boeing pilot Doug
Benjamin, flew the first P-8A Poseidon
(designated T1) over Puget Sound in
Washington kicking off the formal Navy
flight test program.
"It was a good day a really good day,"
Stanton said. "All the training I received
was great. We rehearsed the flight profile
many times, so I came into the flight very
well prepared. And, it was still fun."
Stanton began T1 flight preparation in
2008 with Boeing 737 training in Seattle,
that consisted of classroom courses, com-
puter-based training and a mixture of com-
mercial 737 simulators.
He also spent approximately 250 hours
in the Weapon System Integration Lab
(WISL), located in Kent, Wash. The WSIL
is a non-motion-based simulator designed
to help the test team integrate aircraft and
mission systems, in addition to testing air-
craft components.
"For the baseline P-8, it certainly flies
like a 737," said Stanton. "They did a nice

Six officers at
Fleet Readiness
Center Southeast
(FRCSE) were among
the first Sailors Navy-
wide to receive the new
Professional Aviation
Maintenance Officer
(PAMO) warfare designa-
tor at a Dec. 9 ceremony.
FRCSE Commanding
Officer Capt. Paul Sohl
said he was honored to
present the new insignias.
"This is a big deal. You
get the job done everyday
in support of the Navy's
aviation mission and warf-
ighting capabilities."
FRCSE Executive
Officer Capt. Robert
Caldwell, Cmdr. Kenneth
Brown and Lt. Cmdr.
Winford Peregrin were
presented their devices at
the ceremony. Cmdr. Tim
Pfannenstein, Lt. Cmdr.
Jose Martinez and Lt.
Cmdr. Michael Barriere
were unavailable to
attend the event.
The PAMO device sig-
nifies aviation ground
officers' commitment to
excellence and high level
of knowledge in all aspects
of aviation warfare sup-
port. Caldwell explained
the aviation maintenance
community has been
working on approval of
the PAMO warfare des-
ignation since the early
1980s.

Aviation maintenance
officers must successfully
complete the PAMO quali-
fications, including assign-
ment for 24 months to an
operational squadron and
also at an intermediate-
level maintenance activ-
ity in an aviation mainte-
nance officer billet.
They must also complete
at least one operational
deployment of at least 90
days. Caldwell said, "You
have to get damage con-


trol certification and for
that you have to go to

After satisfying all of
these requirements, avia-
tion maintenance officers
must pass an oral board.
The Commander Naval

Fear of flying meets 101st



air refueling squadron


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


When people learn that my
dad was a career Navy F-14
pilot and that my husband
is a Navy helicopter pilot, they are
surprised to learn that I'm afraid --
no, terrified -- of flying. In fact, I've
only flown once in my life, and that
was in 1997. Dustin convinced me to
go with him to Maui, Hawaii to visit
my two older brothers.
On a chilly December morning
in Baltimore, Md., I sat in the air-
port lobby and watched the sun rise.
Dustin had agreed to stay awake
through the entire 14-hour journey
so I could ask him questions and per-
haps, if I got scared, grip his hand
hard enough to leave an imprint of
my fingernails. However, after we
had boarded the plane, and before it
had taxied down the runway, Dustin,
who has the annoying ability to nap
anywhere and at anytime, was fast
asleep, his head resting on my shoul-
der.
Luckily, the flight was smooth and
I felt like a seasoned traveler by the
time we landed in Honolulu and took
a smaller airplane to Maui. My broth-
er drove us in his Jeep to the house
he shared with my other brother. I
watched the sun, which had chased
us all the way from Maryland, set on
the horizon.
The whole experience was so pleas-
ant, I almost forgot to be afraid when
we boarded a plane a week later to
return home. Then, somewhere
over the United States, we hit tur-
bulence, and the fear that rose from
my stomach and turned my ears ice
cold caused me to lose all inhibition.
I sobbed like a baby and cried for my


FROM THE HOMEFRONT


mom. Other passengers whispered to
their children, asking that they turn
around in their seats and stop staring
at me, the spectacle in the back row.
Dustin didn't sleep much.
Years later, when Dustin was
deployed on USS Enterprise and
scheduled for a port visit in France,
he begged me to fly overseas and
meet him there. I couldn't. If the tur-
bulence en route to Baltimore had
made me afraid, Sept. 11, 2001,
sealed the deal. I had made up my
mind never to fly again.
"Just take a sleeping pill and you'll
never know you're flying," Dustin
said. "I promise I'll find you in the
airport and wake you up."
That didn't sound like a good idea
to me. So while the other military
wives flew to France to spend a week
with their spouses, I stayed behind
and offered to water plants, col-
lect mail and feed animals in their
absence. (Check out Chapter 12 of my
book, Going Overboard and you'll see
how well that went.)
Strangely, I love to watch airplanes,
and I love being inside airports. But
the thought of boarding an airplane
is enough to drain the blood from my
face. I can't explain my fear, and I
don't expect you to understand it. I
also can't say if my fear is based on
being in an enclosed environment or
being out of control, but I'm pretty
sure it has at least something to do
with being in a gigantic machine sus-
pended in the air. In any case, my
fear has caused me to miss out on


family events, weddings, and even my
grandfather's funeral.
Richard Lovelace, a 17th century
English poet, wrote, "Stone walls do
not a prison make/ nor iron bars a
cage." Ten years ago, I taught that
poem to a fifth grade class, and the
meaning of the words suddenly struck
me. Had I built my own wall-less,
cage-less prison with fear? The stanza
became my mantra, even if reciting
the words never actually propelled me
into fearless action.
This past August, Dustin called
me and asked, "How would like to
take a flight on a KC-135 with the
101st (a refueling squadron with the
Air National Guard based in Bangor,
Maine)? They've just called and want
to know if they can take you up for a
ride."
Stone walls do not a prison make/
nor iron bars a cage. Stone walls do
not a prison make....
Before I could stop myself, I said
out loud, "Sure, I'll do it."
Just as my fear of flying is compli-
cated, so is my decision to overcome
it. When Dustin asked me about fly-
ing in the KC-135, my heart pounded
in my ears, reminding me of being a
kid, standing on the edge of the high
dive and daring myself to jump. I had
the same feeling when my brother
took me up 110 feet to bungee jump...
but he pushed me off the platform
before I could back out.
On Tuesday, when I join the 101st
as a passenger, I finally jump for
myself.


HEY, MONEYCHIC!


Hey, MoneyChic!
I'm enjoying the cooler weather and am looking forward
to my electric bills declining as well. What would be a
good setting on my thermostat when I use the heater?
MoneyChic says:
It really depends on what you feel comfortable in, but
I'd keep the setting between 68 to 72 degrees in the winter
for optimal economy.
According to Clay Electric, for every degree the ther-
mostat is set above 69 degrees, the cost of operation will
increase by four percent." If saving dollars and energy is
your goal, also be aware of "phantom loads."
These are appliances that continue to draw small


amounts of electricity even though they may not be in use.
Common examples of phantom loads are: DVD players,
satellite receivers, cable TV receivers, cordless phones,
computers, printers, fax, cell phone charger, aquariums,
electric clocks, programmable coffee pots, garage door
openers, even ceiling fans with remote controls.
The list goes on and on.
Basically, if you can see a light or turn on an appliance
by remote control, then the equipment is using some elec-
tricity all of the time. These loads are estimated to add up
to 20 percent onto your utility bill. That's $20 extra on a
$100 energy bill. Maybe it's time to take a walk through of
your home and unplug items not in regular use.

Staying on top


of personal


financial


readiness

By Rufus Bundrige
NAS Jax Fleet and Family Support Center
Sailors and family members can experience spe-
cial challenges when planning a deployment
budget. To properly manage expenses and bills
when you're away from home, review the financial
checklist below:
Set up allotments well in advance of departure.
Allotments can be used to pay most bills. Setting
them up in advance gives you time to work out any
difficulties.
Investigate payment options for bills that can't
be paid by allotment. Utility companies, for exam-
ple, may have budget plans so the amount due each
month is the same.
Make sure money is accessible during deploy-
ment. Estimate likely expenses and decide on pay-
ment options such as checks, debit card, split pay,
ATMs and on-line banking.
Take along a list of account numbers, addresses,
telephone numbers and email contacts. If single,
leave a copy with your parents.
Consider giving power of attorney to your spouse
or parent but never give a power of attorney to a
friend or sweetheart.
Protect your car by arranging for safe storage dur-
ing deployment. Consider lowering, but not dropping,
your insurance. Check you license tag and base decals
to confirm that they will be valid when you return.
Open a savings account and budget money to
deposit each payday, because your expenses are often
lower during deployment. Take advantage of the
opportunity to save for a major purchase upon return.
Create short- and long-term financial goals. Take
time to plan your future financial goals and construct
a diagram to make it happen.
Do you have more questions about your personal
financial readiness? Then plan to attend the next
"Million Dollar Sailor" personal wealth-building pro-
gram at NAS Jax FFSC. It's a two-day course that
teaches Sailors and their families to successfully
navigate the transitions of Navy life and the financial
challenges that accompany them.

'Red Lions' prepare for departure


HS-15 moving to


NAS North Island


next month
By Clark Pierce .
Editor


After months of preparation, HS-15 Sailors and
their families will soon begin the squadron's west-
ern migration to their new homeport at NAS
North Island in San Diego. "In mid-January, we say our
final goodbye to NAS Jacksonville home of 'Red Lions'
since 1973 and fly to Norfolk, Va. to join Carrier Air
Wing (CVW) 17 on board the aircraft carrier USS Carl
Vinson (CVN 70)," said Cmdr. Larry Getz, HS-15 com-
manding officer.
HS-15 Executive Officer Cmdr. Kevin Kennedy
explained that following its mid-life refueling and complex
overhaul -a three and a half-year evolution at Newport
News, Va. the carrier successfully completed its sea
trials and is now ready to sail around South America en
route to its new homeport at NAS North Island.
"As of Oct. 1, we established our presence at NAS North
Island with a detachment of two Seahawks and about two
dozen people. Right now, they're getting our hangar spac-
es organized for our arrival. Our remaining five aircraft
(SH-60F and HH-60H) and about 120 personnel will go to
San Diego with the Carl Vinson," said Kennedy.
The 2010 cruise to San Diego is expected to take about
three months and include port calls in Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil and Lima, Peru.
"In addition to training on our maritime skills, we
expect to take part in a number of combined exercises
with military forces of select Central and South American
partners," said Getz. "Combined exercises help build trust
among partners and foster safe operating rules. We may

also participate in social events that enhance relation-
ships with host nations, and build mutual respect among
military professionals."
"After 36 years at NAS Jacksonville, we're moving to a
new base, on a new coast, where we'll eventually transi-
tion to a new Seahawk. In addition to moving our people,
materials and other stuff -we must also keep our unique
sense of pride and accomplishment intact," said Getz.
In August, the squadron made history when 64 person-
nel and four HH-60H helicopters returned safely from five
months supporting the combined joint special operations
command based in Balad, Iraq.
"This was a mission Navy helicopter crews train to
all the time," explained Getz. "But it was different than


nour usual boat tour, because we detached directly to
a land-based command. It was mostly night operations
with Navy SEALS, Army Green Berets or other special
operations forces. One of the non-standard missions we
flew was FID foreign internal defense that trained
Iraqi special operations forces in helicopter operations
such as fast-rope egress. It was rewarding to help Iraqi
forces learn to take on more responsibility for their own
defense."
"Over the past 18 months, the young Sailors of HS-15
answered every challenge including multiple detach-
ments, going to the boat, serving in Iraq, and executing
our homeport change. I'm proud to lead the Red Lions
because we accomplished so much," concluded Getz.

Oct. 1 in San Diego. The flagship for CSG 1
will be the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson
(CVN 70), currently homeported in Newport News,
Va. Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 17, Destroyer Squadron
(DESRON) 1, USS Bunker Hill (CG 52) and USS
Lake Champlain (CG 57) will round out the strike
group.
Commanded by Rear Adm. Ted Branch, CSG 1
will be a San Diego-based operational command that
reports to Commander, U.S. 3rd Fleet.
"We are excited by the opportunity to establish
this new command and bring the power of the Carl
Vinson Carrier Strike Group on line in support of our
nation's defense," said Branch. "I'm also very happy
to bring this capability, along with the men and
women who make it possible, to the great city of San
Diego."
Carrier Strike Group l's first mission is expected to
be a transit around South America in 2010 as Vinson
relocates to its new homeport of San Diego.
In support of the nation's maritime strategy, CSG-1
will help promote regional partnerships, deter crisis,
project power, promote maritime security, and pro-
vide humanitarian assistance or disaster relief within
the U.S. Pacific Fleet's 100 million square-mile area
of operations.

VP-16 safety training


goes interactive
By Lt. j.g. Zach Goldstein ~v
VP 16 PAO ./


The "War Eagles" of
VP-16 raised the
bar on safety stand-
downs Nov. 23 by creating
nine interactive exhibits
in the squadron's hangar
workspaces rather than
lecture-style classroom
training.
Following the open-
ing remarks of VP-16
Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Anthony Corapi, the event
kicked off with a dem-
onstration on required
protective gear. Staged
on the port wing of air-
craft 591, was a manne-
quin in a flight suit, com-
plete with a pumpkin for a
head. Unfortunately, this
mannequin failed to wear
his cranial (protective
headgear) and fell from the
wing to a devastating head
injury.
VP-16 Safety Officers,
Lt. Melissa Arms and Lt.
Kevin Harrington, planned
the event. Harrington said,
"This year we wanted to
put a new twist on an old
concept. We knew that with
a little ingenuity and plan-
ning we could put together
an interactive safety event
that engaged Sailors of all
backgrounds and experienc-
es and that's exactly what

uation drill behind CWO3 Stephen Ditamore. AW2 Tammy
Richards (right) monitors the evolution as a safety observer.


happened."
Every squadron depart-
ment participated,
with two interactive
exhibits in particular tak-
ing the spotlight. The
first was a coordinated
effort with firefighters
from NAS Jacksonville
Fire Department who
brought their smoke
machine to simulate an
aircraft consumed in
smoke. Aircrews conducted
an emergency egress drill
and evacuated from the
starboard emergency over-
wing exit. Safety observers
were standing by to assist if
required.


This careless safety mannequin fell from the port wing of
a P-3C Orion to demonstrate the importance of wearing
protective headgear.


The second event that
drew the most spectators
was the intoxication gog-
gles. NAS Jax Security
supplied specially designed
goggles that simulate alco-
hol-induced vision impair-
ment. Each set of goggles
represented a different
level of intoxication. Sailors
donned the goggles and
performed a series of motor
skill exercises to learn the
dangerous effects of alco-
hol in a safe and controlled
environment.
Corapi stated, "When
you can get hands-on train-
ing like this outside of the
classroom, everyone bene-
fits. War Eagle division offi-
cers and lead petty officers
took on this vitally impor-
tant task and put together
a fantastic safety event.
Always keep in mind that
safety doesn't slow the job
down -but mishaps do."
VP-16 personnel re-
committed themselves to
continue demonstrating
excellence in safe opera-
tions each and every day.

Naval Hospital Jax campuses

go 'tobacco-free' Jan. 1


By Loren Barnes
Naval Hospital Jax Public Affairs


Naval Hospital Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt. Bruce
Gillingham signed a proclamation
on Dec. 11 designating Naval Hospital
Jax, its Branch Health Clinics and all
their campus grounds tobacco-free effec-
tive Jan. 1, 2010.
In signing the Proclamation Gillingham
said, "Smoking is inconsistent with the
mission of the Naval Hospital and we are
committed to creating an even healthier
environment for our staff, patients and
visitors."
Starting New Years Day no tobacco may
be smoked or chewed within the posted
boundaries of the Naval Hospital or any
of the command's Branch Health Clinics
at any time. This goes for all active duty
service members, all civilian employees,
and all visitors including inpatients and
outpatients.
Navy Medicine and the Surgeon General
of the Navy Vice Adm. Adam Robinson, Jr.
have taken the lead in the "smoke-free"


Navy initiatives. Many military medical
facilities as well as hospitals in the civil-
ian sector are going "smoke-free" in the
health interests of the community they
serve. Robinson said, "There is pride in
quitting smoking. You are taking a stand.
Controlling your life. Taking responsibil-
ity."
In a recent memo to Navy Medicine the
Surgeon General applauded the steps
Navy Medical Treatment Facilities (MTFs)
have taken to establish tobacco-free
campuses. He cited a study by the Joint
Commission which found that the major-
ity of U.S. hospitals will be tobacco-free
by the end of 2009. "With four MTFs cur-
rently tobacco-free and seven additional
MTFs scheduled to go tobacco-free, Navy
Medicine is demonstrating its commitment
to providing a safe and healthy environ-
ment for all," Robinson said.
In addition, to the well-known cancer
risks associated with tobacco products
there are risks associated with many dis-
eases and medical conditions. Kicking the

NAS Jax Supply



Detachment sets new



standard on SMI


By Terri Brooks
FISC Jacksonville Det. NAS
Jacksonville


F leet and Industrial
Supply Center
Jacksonville (FISCJ)
Det. NAS Jacksonville
recently achieved "out-
standing" results in its
Supply Management
Inspection (SMI) conducted
Oct. 19-23 by Commander,
Naval Air Forces (CNAF).
The final inspection
report revealed an outcome
of "outstanding" in the nine
functional areas inspected.
The overall narrative rat-
ing was also "outstanding"
and the inspection received
a numerical score of 99.49
percent the highest score
ever achieved by the site
and possibly the highest
score ever achieved by any
naval air station, according
to Lead Inspector Cmdr.
Mark Harris.
The SMI evaluated sup-
ply functions performed
jointly by the Aviation
Support Detachment (ASD)
Jacksonville and FISCJ
Det. NAS Jacksonville.
The nine areas evalu-
ated were: supply response
section, data base admin-
istration, component con-


trol section, carcass track-
ing, control division, mate-
rial division, government
commercial purchase card,
training and security, and
pulse points/inventory.
The SMI involved a rig-
orous review by 14 supply
experts who verified every-
thing from current status
on all requisitions to physi-
cal security of spaces.
Inspectors scrutinized
the most critical functions
including inventory and
record accuracy and mate-
rial availability. In all,
the inspectors reviewed
over 400 checklist items
for record accuracy, con-
formance to directives and
customer support.
The inspection revealed
only three minor adminis-
trative findings. In several
instances, the inspectors
praised innovative ideas,
specific people, and note-
worthy functions at the
site.
LS2 Lavarr Coates was
commended for "ensur-
ing that all aspects of the
ASD training program are
in compliance with CNAF
policies."
Judy Hammond was rec-
ognized for "streamlining

Laurie Langston was
noted for "continuous, supe-
rior execution of all data-
base administrator func-
tions and responsibilities."
Also lauded were
LS2(AW) Tangela Holmes
and LS2(AW) Carlos Lugo,
leaders of the Awaiting
Parts Unit (AWP), for
"superb management of
the AWP lockers with 100
percent component account-
ability and requisition
validity."
Many other team mem-
bers were issued individ-
ual Bravo Zulus by CNAF
inspectors.
FISCJ Commanding
Officer Capt. Joycelin

the team's performance,
which she described as "the

Commander, Patrol and
Reconnaissance Wing 11
Capt. Mark Turner said,
"Despite some major chal-
lenges, including budget
constraints and the gain
of several new squadrons,
our team achieved amazing
results. Congratulations on
a spectacular inspection."
Former FISCJ
Commanding Officer
Capt. Karl Rau, CO at
the time of the inspection,
said, "In a word wow!


This is absolutely incred-
ible. These scores truly are
unprecedented. My hearti-
est congratulations to the
team of FISCJ Det. NAS
Jacksonville superstars."
"I am so pleased that the
SMI inspectors came to the
same conclusion as I have
- that our folks are doing
a superb job supporting the
organizational- and inter-
mediate-level maintainers
and operators on this base,"
said NAS Jacksonville
Supply Officer Cmdr. Terry


Surdyke.
Robinson concluded,
"This SMI proved that
day in and day out, the
Jacksonville team, com-
prised of ASD Jacksonville
and FISCJ Det. NAS
Jacksonville (supported by
warehouse and transpor-
tation contractor Akima
Corporation) is keenly
focused on contributing
to the Naval Air Station's
mission of enabling naval

ness.

ment due to a well organized and dedicated maintenance
division.
In addition to the operational support the Pelicans pro-
vided abroad, many individual and crew qualifications
were achieved. Seven officers qualified as mission com-
manders, four pilots qualified as patrol plane command-
ers and two navigators qualified as tactical officers. Six
Pelicans qualified as navigators and three qualified as
instructors. Four pilots obtained their patrol plane copi-
lot qualification, while three more passed their systems
boards. Four flight engineers, two in-flight technicians,
and a sensor-one operator also became qualified, along
with four pilots and two navigators who were designated
instructor selectees. Three maintainers received their CDI
certification, one received his Safe for Solo designation,
and 36 maintainers earned their enlisted aviation warfare
specialist badges.
The Pelicans anxiously awaited their reunion with
friends and family in Jacksonville but are proud to have
served their country honorably while away.

The really interesting fly-
ing for the P-8 will come
when we emulate the P-3
mission high bank angle,
low altitude, autopilot inte-
grated into our mission
with missiles on the wings.
Then it gets interesting,"
said Stanton.
That type of flying will
come later in the test pro-
gram. T1 actually made
three flights in October,
prior to undergoing more
instrumentation installa-
tion in the factory. The first
flight was to check the air-
worthiness, or how well the
modified 737 aircraft flies
with all the test instrumen-
tation.
The next two flights prac-
ticed instrument approach-
es with a visual restrictive
device. Stanton said one of
the things the Navy moni-
tors is whether or not the
pilots are capable of safely
flying the plane when they
can't look out the window
for visual reference.
Initial testing of T1 is
being conducted in the
Seattle area. It will trans-
fer to NAVAIR Test and
Evaluation Group at NAS
Patuxent River in early
2010, where flight and
operational testing will be
completed by the integrat-
ed test team (ITT).

prised of Navy Air Test
and Evaluation Squadrons
VX-20 and VX-1, will

Sprucing up the base


for the holidays


From Staff


Hundreds of NAS Jacksonville
Sailors and civilians joined forces
Dec. 9 to attack litter, trash and
other debris during the base-wide clean-
up. Participants enjoyed mild tempera-
tures while picking up cigarette butts,
paper, cans and other trash that were
discarded around the base. More than 350
personnel from dozens of commands spent
a full morning policing their grounds -
and ultimately removing more than 5,000
pounds of debris.
NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. said, "It's everyone's


responsibility to keep our base environ-
ment shipshape, and this cleanup is just
the beginning. We should all do our part
every day of the year to prevent trash and
pollution from impacting the ecosystem,"
said Scorby.
Command Master Chief CMDCM(SW/
SS) Jeff Hudson helped lead the effort
and said, "I'm very impressed with the
amount of participation shown by each
command. They take pride in their spaces,
buildings and grounds which spurs them
to get involved. The Sailors at NAS Jax
show great spirit. We believe in the base
and what it stands for, and we take a lot of
pride in how it is presented."

T he VP-10 "Red Lancers" are offi-
cially home at their new base after
a six-month deployment to Qatar
and Djibouti, Africa. VP-10 also oper-
ated from detachments in Iraq and
Japan. The squadron transitioned to NAS
Jacksonville from NAS Brunswick, Maine
as part of the 2005 Base Closure and
Realignment Commission's decision to
close NAS Brunswick.
The last of the squadron's P-3 "Orion"
aircraft touched down Dec. 9 with VP-10
Commanding Officer Cmdr. James
Robinson on board the flight. As the air-
craft taxied down the runway, hundreds of
squadron members and their families were
at Hangar 1000 to greet the skipper and
their other squadron members.
"It's good to see all your bright and shin-
ing faces here in Jacksonville. Commodore
Turner, XO Maclay, all skippers and exec-


deployment
utive officers thanks for the warm wel-
come to our new home. It is truly good to
be here," exclaimed Robinson during the
welcome home ceremony.
"While deployed, we flew more than 700
sorties and 4,500 flight hours in support
of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring
Freedom. We should all be proud of a job
well done," he added. "The success of our
deployment could not have been possible
without the support and help from our
families, so with that I would like to thank
them for allowing us to do what we do."
VP-10 is the third of four active duty
P-3 squadrons to execute the homeport
change. Operational and administrative
control of the squadron will transfer from
Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance
Wing Five to Commander, Patrol and
Reconnaissance Wing Eleven. The squad-
ron is comprised of 285 enlisted personnel
and 65 officers.

Hospital unwraps early



Christmas present


44 .-"-


From Naval Hospital Jax
Public Affairs

Santa visited Naval

Hospital Jacksonville
(NH Jax) early on
Dec. 10 much to the
delight of radiology staff,
who were as excited as
kids ripping off the wrap-
ping paper of a shiny new
toy on Christmas morning.
NH Jax Commanding
Officer Capt. Bruce
Gillingham joined
Radiology Department
Head Cmdr. Ricardo
Riegodedios, Director of
Clinical Support Services
(DCSS); Capt. Frank
Pearson; former DCSS
Capt. Denise Graham; and
all the department's staff
to cut the ribbon on a new


computed tomography (CT)
scanner.
Riegodedios declared,
"It's like going from an
Edsel to a Corvette. This
$1.3 million Siemens
Somatom 64-Slice MDCT
elevates our level of care in
a multi-disciplinary man-
ner.
This will benefit every
major subspecialty at NH
Jax that utilizes cross-
sectional imaging, includ-
ing cardiology, pulmonary
medicine, urology, gastro-
enterology and orthopedic
surgery."
"In addition, many non-
invasive applications will
be supported such as
CT colonography, periph-
eral and cardiac angi-
ography that will allow


more thorough evaluation
of complex conditions such
as atherosclerotic disease
and cardiac diseases," said
Riegodedios.
He added that patient
safety will be improved
through the utilization of a
dual-head contrast injector
that tailors the appropri-
ate amount of contrast for
each patient. In addition,
weight-based radiation
exposure will be utilized
to optimize imaging qual-
ity and radiation dose for
patients of various sizes.
An example of the MDCT
advancements was evident
in its first week of opera-
tion when HM2 Matthew
Holmes detected a life-
threatening abnormality in
a patient. He immediately

sought the attention of a
radiologist to confirm that
the MDCT scan revealed
two large masses in the
patient's brain which


prompted immediate neu-
rosurgical referral for treat-
ment.
The enhanced capability
of the new 64-slice MDCT


scanner to clearly define
the extent of patient's dis-
ease would not have been
possible with the prior
6-slice MDCT technology.

If only I could get out of this

If I could join the Navy,

If I could just get through boot

I miss my hometown. If only I

If I could find somebody who
loved me I would feel complete.
If only my girlfriend/boy-

attached to me, things would be

If only my girlfriend/boyfriend

CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


Only two months left until I get
off this boring deployment and
start enjoying my life.
If only I could go back on
deployment with my buddies,
things would be so much better.
If I could get out of the Navy, I
would have so much more free-

The grass always appears
greener on the other side of the
fence. When you are unhappy, it
is easy to blame it on your cir-
cumstances and environment.
Once you start blaming your
problems on your surroundings
it naturally leads you to want to


Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top


change your surroundings. But
if the source of the unhappiness


is actually inside of you, chang-
ing your circumstances will only
bring temporary comfort.
In life, there are two types of
things that cause us to be unhap-
py things we can change and
things we cannot change. If the
source of our unhappiness is
something we can change, then
the way to happiness is easy. Just
change it! But when it is some-
thing outside of our control, our
tendency is to complain, worry,
and hope somebody else will
change it for us.
The problem gets even more
complicated by the fact that there
are very few problems in life that
fit perfectly into one of these two
categories. Almost all the prob-


lems we face in life have both
things we can change and things
we can't change.
In such cases, it is common for
people to simply focus on the part
that they have no control over,
then sigh and say, "If only things
were different." They wallow in
their misery, convinced that they
are victims of circumstance.
The only person who can make
you happy is you. Your happiness
in not in somebody else's hands.
When you are unhappy with
your circumstances, do what you
can to change them. If you can't
change them, then change your
attitude about them.
Yes, you can change the way
you view things. Stop wallow-
ing in self-pity and choose to be
happy. It may not be easy. But
learning how to choose happiness
is one of the most important skills
you will ever learn.

SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


Gift ideas to delight the


budget and recipient


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor

Did you hit the stores on Black
Friday? How is your holiday gift
list coming along? I totally love
this holiday but gift giving can sometimes
leave me scrambling for the perfect gift,
and on budget. I received an email list of
gift ideas that is creative, thoughtful and
economical. I just had to pass this list
along!
Handmade gifts
Knitted scarf
Decorated dish towel
Personalized coupon book (ex. Car wash
for a year, etc)
Family history book
Scrapbook
T-shirt quilt (kid's or spouse's t-shirts
over the years)
Personal pillow case with a photograph/
picture
Collection of recipes from your childhood
Crafty picture frame
Decorated dish
Tin with candy or cookies
Salsa
Soups/Cookie mix in a jar (recipes avail-
able online)
Plain white t-shirt with your kid's hand-
prints or picture (iron on) on it
Candle decoration (dish with sand, sea
shells and candles)
Pictures taken at home and a copy dis-
tributed to everyone in the family
Picture collage
Make something of interest to your recip-
ient; apron, etc.
Collect cards received throughout
the year and make a frame out of it in
the order of the seasons (New Years,
Valentine's, St. Patrick's Day, etc)
Gift cards (for your recipients
to use on anything they would
like)
Gas station
Department store
Movies
Restaurants


Other ideas
A family heirloom (age appropriate)
Purchase clothes on clearance
Recycle a gift that was given to you
(make sure you don't give it back to who-
ever gave it to you)
Books and magazine memberships
Traditional gift exchange
Each person's name is written on a piece
of paper and placed in a hat. Those who
participate get a turn to pull one piece of
paper out of the hat with a name on it.
Whichever name the participant receives
will buy a gift for that person.
In the end, each participant receives
a gift. You can set a maximum dollar
amount per gift. (Our family does this and
we love it! We do not buy for 'everyone' in
the family just our 'selected.' We can really
bless that one person.)
White elephant giftgift exchange
Select participants and each one will
purchase and wrap a gift (typically, a max-
imum dollar amount is specified). On the
day of the exchange, randomly select the
order in which participants will have the
ability to select a gift.
The first person selects a gift and opens
it. The second person has the option to
"steal" the gift from the first person or
select a new one. If the first gift is "sto-
len," the first person selects a new gift.
The third person has the same option as
the second person (to steal from either the
first or second person or select a new one).
Continue until all participants have a
gift. Typically, there is a maximum num-
ber of two "steals" per gift.
I hope these ideas are helpful and will
add to your holiday joy! By the way, I love
homemade gifts (hint-hint). Have a great
week and enjoy this season!

CLIFF'S ENERGY NOTES

Sensible driving and vehicle maintenance


By Cliff Plante
NAVFACSE Resource Efficiency
Manager
With the holiday
season in full
swing, many
of us will be hitting the
roads to visit with friends
and family. There are sev-
eral things we can do to
reduce our fuel consump-
tion along with our "car-
bon footprint."
Transportation accounts
for 67 percent of U.S.
petroleum use mainly in
the form of gasoline and
diesel fuels. With that
said, there are a number
of ways to improve your
fuel mileage.
Idling your engine
gives you a net zero miles
per gallon. If you need
to warm up your vehicle
on cold winter days, no
more than 30 seconds is


required to assure proper
lubrication of the engine.
Anything longer than this
is simply a waste of fuel
that increases emissions
into the atmosphere.
One of the biggest
ways to save energy is to
accelerate our vehicles
as if we had a raw egg
beneath the accelerator
pedal. This driving tech-
nique can increase mile-
age by as much as 10 per-
cent.
Avoiding rush-hour
traffic or holiday traffic
congestion is another way
to save energy. Plan your
trip's departure to avoid
the peak hours of travel
during this holiday season.
Are your tires properly
inflated? Adjusting your
tire pressure to the manu-
facturer's recommendation
can increase mile-per-gal-


lon by as much as three
percent.
If weather conditions
permit, use the flow-
through ventilation on
your car instead of turn-
ing on the air conditioning
system. Air conditioning
reduces your mileage by
as much as 20 percent. At
highway speeds however,
modern vehicles are more
fuel efficient with the air
conditioning on, rather
than off and with the win-
dows down.
Speeding is a very
expensive and wasteful
habit. Driving 75 mph
instead of 65 mph can
lower your car's fuel mile-
age by as much as 10 per-
cent.
Drive safely and make
frequent stops as needed
to keep yourself alert and
hydrated.


TOBACCO-FREE: Naval Hospital

ban goes in effect next month


From Page 6


habit holds many benefits for beneficia-
ries, said Capt. Joseph McQuade, Naval
Hospital Jax Public Health director. As an
example he said, "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 stud-
ies of places that had enacted bans on
smoking versus places that had no such
bans. Caring for you as patients means
more to us than just helping you while
you are seen at an appointment. We know
the importance of setting a good example
and we know the importance of quitting
tobacco."
McQuade asked the hospital staff to do
their part to encourage smoking cessation
with their patients and to make referrals
to help beneficiaries be successful.
"Our tobacco cessation program at


Naval Hospital Jacksonville, the Wellness
Centers and Branch Health Clinics is
huge. We follow more than 3,000 patients
per year with pharmaceutical therapy,
behavioral therapies and good old-fash-
ioned moral support helping them to quit. Our
Wellness Center is opening up its doors to
non-beneficiary employees who may desire
help with medications and behavioral ther-
apies in the month of December," McQuade
said.
At NAS Jax, the Wellness Center's
Danny Woodard, health promotions spe-
cialist has led the charge in changing life-
styles for the better helping people kick
tobacco. Woodard stands ready to help you
move toward a healthier tobacco-free life
style. For assistance with smoking cessa-
tion call 542-2836 or e-mail danny.wood-

ASK DR JOE



Staying fit despite the



sugar plums


By Capt. Joe McQuade
NH Jax Director of Public Health


Many of my patients in recent
weeks have been trying hard to
lose weight and increase their
fitness levels. With the holiday season
in full swing, many
have had problems
sticking to their
plans. Here's a go at
what may help you
stay fit through the
season of parties and
big dinners.
Q: How can I
keep the pounds
off this holiday
season?
Weight control
basically comes down
to calories eaten vs.
calories burned with
exercise. If you eat
too many calories
and do not burn any
off with exercise -
you gain weight. Capt. Joe
Approximately 3,000
calories can add one pound. If you want to
lose one pound a week, you have to burn
about 500 calories more by exercise than
you consume in your diet over a 7-day peri-
od. Dieting, eating less at each sitting,
exercising, or a combination of these can
keep the pounds off.
The American Council on Exercise rec-
ommends the following to stay healthy and
fit over the holidays:
You can make up for a feast of rich,
higher-fat foods with lighter, lower-fat
meals for a couple of days before or after
the big meal. Plan ahead for the big meal
with a low-calorie, low-fat breakfast and
lunch. Never skip meals, just go easy on
them.
Look back and assess your diet over
the past few days by keeping an informal


food diary. Have you been over-indulging
at recent party feasts? Are there additional
celebrations looming?
Try eating sensibly in order to afford the
extra calories come party time.
Don't panic or feel guilty if your diet
seems to have gotten
out of hand. When
you balance your
intake over several
days, you have ample
Time to regain con-
trol.
Make exercise
a regular habit.
Beyond burning
calories, exercise is
essential for good
health, stress man-
agement (often times
a challenge during
the busy holiday sea-
son) and overall well
being. You'll enjoy
/ the holidays more
walking, seeing your
neighbors and feeling
McQuade fit.
Working out consistently will help
jump-start your metabolism and allow you
to burn more of those calories from the
holiday binge.
Have a salad, light soup or some fruit
and veggies before you leave home for your
party. This way you will feel fuller and will
be less likely to overeat.
Practice portion control, where a small-
er serving can be very satisfying and calo-
rie trimming. Your meat should fit on your
plate as if it were a deck of cards.
The holidays are a wonderful time of
the year. Staying fit will make your holi-
day season more memorable. Think of a
great "wellness resolution" for the New
Year. The NH Jax Tobacco Cessation and
Healthy Weight team at our Wellness
Center are here to help you.

Navy poll tracks physical



readiness perceptions


By MCC(SW) Maria Yager
Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

results from the 2009 Navy Physical
Readiness Quick Poll released Dec.
10, reveal positive fitness percep-
tions among Sailors.
Navy Personal Readiness and
Community Support (N135) sponsored
the poll designed to assess perceptions of
the command physical readiness program
resources and personal physical readiness.
"Overall, the results were good. The
Quick Poll provided us with valuable input
directly from our Sailors that we can use
to make our program even better," said
Bill Moore, director of the Navy's Physical
Readiness Program, which falls under
N135.
According to the poll, more than 85 per-
cent of respondents report they have ade-
quate access to physical fitness facilities
and equipment, primarily at their duty
station. The majority of Sailors report they
are satisfied with the amount of time pro-
vided at work for physical training.
The poll also indicated that more than
50 percent of Sailors are satisfied with the
physical education resources provided by
the Navy however, this is an area Moore


seeks to improve.
"Since the Quick Poll, we've restructured
our physical readiness program Web site to
include videos, checklists, a how-to guide
for the conduct of the physical fitness test,
the Fitness Enhancement Program Guide
and an up-to-date nutrition guide. Physical
Readiness Program E-Grams have been
created to give Command Fitness Leaders
current information and tools," said Moore.
"I want to ensure our Web site is the defin-
itive source for the full scope of informa-
tion commands, Sailors and their families
need to promote healthy lifestyles."
The poll also shows Sailors are leading
healthier lifestyles. Nearly 80 percent of
Sailors report they always or sometimes
make fitness a part of their daily routine.
"It's more of a lifestyle. From everything
I eat to the way I walk to and from and
around the ship," said FC2(SW) Mark
Delgadillo, assigned to the USS Abraham
Lincoln (CVN 72). In addition to his work-
out, Delgadillo walks briskly when transit-
ing the ship, which is currently undergoing
a major overhaul at Puget Sound Naval
'hIpy.dii in Bremerton, Wash.
"It takes little things like that through-

Sun protection needed all year


'round including winter months


By Erin Mulvey
The Skin Cancer Foundation


Although the temperature may be
cold and sunlight less intense,
the amount of the sun's damag-
ing ultraviolet (UV) rays reaching the
surface of the earth remains very strong
throughout the year, especially ultravio-
let A (UVA). While ultraviolet B (UVB)
rays (the sunburn-causing rays) are the
strongest in summer, UVB loses intensity
in the winter and UVA rays remain con-
stant.
"Our knowledge of the dangers associ-
ated with UVA rays (the sun's longer-wave
rays) has grown significantly over the last
few decades. We now know that UVA plays
a significant role in skin cancer," said
Perry Robins, MD, president, The Skin
Cancer Foundation. "Therefore, consum-
ers need to educate themselves on how to
protect against these damaging rays and
remember that sun protection is an all
year round concern."
UVA can penetrate into the deeper lay-
ers of the skin causing wrinkles, brown
spots, sagging and other signs of skin
aging. It also contributes to the develop-
ment of skin cancers. Although UVA rays
are less intense than the shorter wave-
length UVB, they can be 30 to 50 times
more prevalent than UVB rays. In addi-
tion, up to 80 percent of ultraviolet A and
B penetrate through clouds and 100 per-
cent of UVA rays go through glass.
For effective UVA protection, look for
sunscreens that contain some combina-


tion of stabilized avobenzone, oxybenzone,
mexoryl, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
The Skin Cancer Foundation also recom-
mends using sunscreens with an SPF of 15
or higher daily.
Sun protection tips for everyday
Applying a moisturizer that contains an
SPF of 15 or higher to the face, hands, and
other exposed areas of the skin will suf-
fice if you don't plan on spending too much
time outdoors. Many cosmetics, such as
foundation, lipsticks and powder contain
an SPF, making sun protection even eas-
ier. A powder with an SPF 15+ is a great
way to reapply protection without ruining
makeup.
Sun protection tips for outdoor
activities
Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an
SPF of 15 or higher and don't forget areas
such as underneath the nose and chin
where skin is exposed to snow reflection.
Snow reflects about 80 percent of the UV
light from the sun, so that the rays hit you
twice, further increasing your risk for skin
cancer and premature aging. Wear pro-
tective clothing such as a hat, gloves and
UV-blocking sunglasses with wraparound
or large frames. Also, reapply sunscreen at
least every two hours, and more often after
sweating or exposure to wind and snow.
Activities such as skiing and snowboard-
ing call for just as much sunscreen as you
would use at the beach.
Remember to be mindful of time spent
in the sun, regardless of the season. Sun
protection is a part of an overall healthy
lifestyle.


POLL: Fitness evaluated
From Page 14

out the day to stay fit in the environment the ship is in,"
he added.
At NAS Jacksonville, Command Fitness Leader
ADCS(AW/SW) Jim Babb said, "Our people are making
the fitness lifestyle change. They like keeping fit and eat-
ing nutritionally. NAS Jacksonville's most recent PFA
results are evidence that Sailors are taking Navy fitness
serious and are taking the necessary steps to maintain
compliance to Navy standards. Our results indicated a 70
percent reduction in failures."
Babb continued, "This command milestone was accom-
plished within one PFA cycle Hoo-Yah! Additionally, our
Fitness Enhancement Program is producing a 90 percent
success rate. The program is five days a week with 90
minutes minimum of strength training combined with
cardio workouts. Bottom line our outstanding results
indicate Sailors at NAS Jacksonville are on board with
Navy fitness. This poll shows that Sailors are getting the
message."
Command support for fitness was another topic explored
in the poll. It found that leaders are setting the tone for
their Sailors. More than two-thirds of Sailors report their
command leadership supports physical training, leads by
example when it comes to physical readiness."We do have
a very active PT program here. We do command PT twice
a week. Everyone from the CO on down attends and all
really enjoys the program. On our most recent PFA we
had 40 percent of the command score an excellent or bet-
ter," said CMDCM(SW/AW) Troy Cox of Naval Computer
and Telecommunications Station Bahrain.
AIMD in Atsugi, Japan was recently recognized for
its commitment to physical readiness. Every Monday,
Wednesday and Friday, the entire command of 257 Sailors
musters at the gym for 45 minutes of physical training.
"Our command fitness leaders are dedicated to ensure
AIMD Sailors stay on top of their physical readiness in
order to maintain our mission readiness," said AZ1(SW)
Ernest McKee, assigned to AIMD Atsugi. "This is a
new Navy. We have 13,000 Sailors serving in Iraq and
Afghanistan who are wearing 30 pounds of battle gear on
a daily basis. We need Sailors who are fit to fight, whether
it is on the ground or climbing through an escape scuttle
from the pit of an aircraft carrier" said Moore.

Jax Navy Exchange (NEX), wrap a newly purchased piece of furniture at the NEX Home and

New Year's fireworks advisory

From NAS Jax Fire Prevention Division
Except for command-controlled displays, the possession of explosives
and fireworks for sale, storage, or use of any description on board NAS
Jacksonville property, are strictly prohibited.
Fireworks are fun to watch, but are extremely dangerous in the hands of ama-
teurs. Fireworks accidents can turn a joyful celebration into a painful memory
when children, and adults are injured while improperly using fireworks. The
NAS Jax Fire Prevention Division recommends attending public firework dis-
plays -because professional programs are safer, and produce superior displays
then what might be accomplished at your home. Always think about "fire safety"
during your New Year's celebration.

Teen driving class offered Dec. 30


From NAS jax 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 driv-
er'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 spe-
cifically for young driv-
ers 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 emer-
gencies as well as increas-
ing awareness of other driv-


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