the project brings to fruition more
than a decade of planning, contract
bids and hard work.
NH Jax Commanding Officer Capt.
Bruce Gillingham said, "This mili-
tary construction project will help us
deliver world-class medical treatment
using the most innovative technology.
Expansion and renovation of Naval
Hospital Jacksonville underscores our
commitment to excellence and to pro-
viding the highest quality healthcare
to meet the needs of each and every
one of our patients."

Standardization manual was written
That means every aviation rule,
every item on a checklist and every
quality assurance inspection exists
because someone was hurt or worse,
lost their life through their own or
someone else's negligence.
The same can be said of traffic laws
and procedures for safely operat-
ing motor vehicles. When cars first
appeared in America, streets and
highways were mostly cobblestone or
dirt roads. There were no stop, yield,
caution or pedestrian-crossing signs,
traffic lights, or even traffic cops. As
motor vehicles replaced horse-drawn
wagons, citizens and officials enacted
laws to prevent loss of property, as
well as injury or death to people.
Today, every speed limit, traffic
sign, traffic light and vehicle regula-
tion at NAS Jax exists because the
need for it became clear after an acci-
dent resulting in vehicle damage or
personnel injury. Traffic control devic-
es, speed control devices and lane
lights help ensure everyone's safety
only as long as they are obeyed.

VP-16 detachment trains
above Arctic Circle
By Lt. j.g. Patrick DiEugenio
VP-16 "War Eagles" detachment deployed at NAS
Sigonella, Italy, recently returned from a joint
training exercise with the Norwegian Royal Air
Force based in Andenes, Norway.
During their assignment in Norway, VP-16 Combat
Aircrews One and Seven logged an impressive number of
hours flying above the Arctic Circle. This was a first for
both crews who said that training with a NATO partner
will pay itself forward.
Officer-In-Charge Lt. Travis Ream, said the detach-
ment's men and women enjoyed their assignment. "The
work we did with the Norwegian P-3 crews, coupled with
our mission completion rate, were things that we train for.
The lessons we learned will be taken back to share with
our squadron, as well as the rest of our maritime patrol
and reconnaissance community."
With the first Norwegian joint exercise in the books, the
War Eagles are primed to build on their success in inter-
national relations and look forward to working with more
allies in the future.

A military wife's dilemma
By Sarah Smiley
After 34 years as a dependent (I
was born while my dad was on
a seven-month deployment),
I don't find it unreasonable that I
have a love-hate relationship with
Not everyone agrees. Military wives
(forget the politically correct "spouse"
- I'm a wife) should be selfless, upbeat
and totally devoted to their husband's
career. Wearing flag-motif socks and
earrings is extra credit. It's the old
atta-girl mentality. Complaining
about military life is as socially unac-
ceptable as openly declaring that you
didn't vote for Obama.
But the truth is, being a military
wife involves hard work and sacrifice,
and very few rewards. Being a mod-
ern woman and married to a military
man at the same time is increasingly
difficult. Gone are the days when a
military wife's job was to throw fan-
tastic parties and make her husband
look good. Now, the expectation is that
a military wife throw fantastic par-
ties, make her husband look good -
as well as have a career, raise chil-
dren (possibly home school them),
further her own education, be well
informed, and never (not ever) com-

My daughter signed up for piano
lessons and our contract said that we
had to agree to automatic monthly
payments for six months and give a
30-day notice before we could quit. It
all sounded fair to me, so we signed
the agreement. At the end of eight
months, we decided to discontinue
the lessons and wrote a formal can-
cellation letter. Here's the kicker...
its three months later and the store
is still charging our account via ACH
within a 1950s mentality. When your
husband moves, you move with him.
When your husband has goals, you
support them. When you have goals of
your own, you shut up and smile.
And yet most military wives will
tell you that they love the lifestyle.
They aren't lying. Enter the love-hate
relationship. In 2005, the New York
Times magazine ran a feature about
me ("Confessions of a Military Wife,"
Nov. 1, 2005). The reporter nailed my
complex feelings about the military
when she wrote:
"Somewhere between her forced mil-
itary cheer and the recurring urge
to smash it, Smiley retains a child's
wish, as strong and steady as a heart-
beat, that the military, in which she
grew up, knows best. She wrestles
with her fervent hopes that it will
protect her and her family, even as
she suspects it may not. Although she
is not in the military, she is of it; it
represents her entire life's experience,
and she defends it as fiercely as she

"Will you quit school to move with

I'm putting Dustin in an impossible

not asked Dustin to get out of the mil-
itary. Nor have I asked him to give up
on his personal commitment.
In fact, I have required nothing of
him at all. I cannot ask Dustin to
abandon his plans any more than he
should ask me to forfeit mine. Still, as
far as I know, no one has said to him,

are indeed being wrongly charged,
your bank should be happy to investi-

change banks and close your account.
That's my two cents.

CASS Team celebrates 20 years of development
improve testing reliability'
By FRCSE Public Affairs. L 1
The Consolidated Automated
Support System (CASS) team
recently celebrated 20 years
of CASS Test Program Sets (TPS)
development with a cake cutting cer-
emony at Cecil Commerce Center.
For more than two decades, the
Fleet Readiness Center Southeast
(FRCSE) In-Service Support Center
(ISSC) engineers, logisticians, techni-
cians and project managers have been
developing CASS TPS hardware and
software to test aircraft avionics and
electronics equipment for Navy and
Marine Corps sites worldwide.
"We received the first (CASS) sta-
tion in 1990 when we started full
integration and development of oper-
ational test sets," said Electronics
Engineer Bill Heyn, the Electro-Optic
TPS development branch head.
The CASS team develops TPS and
designs hardware to interface with
Automated Test Equipment (ATE)
used for verifying reliability and per-
formance of aircraft systems, such
as mission computers, cockpit con-
trols and Multi-spectral Targeting
CASS is designed to consolidate
electronic and avionics support into
one standard ATE system. CASS
TPS are used for testing avionic and
electronic equipment at Level II or
higher maintenance sites.
"When a piece of avionics doesn't
work, repairs are done at the oper-
ations or squadron level. Sub-
assemblies are sent to either Level
II or Level III maintenance facili-
ties where they are either repaired or
replaced," he said.
Existing legacy mainframe CASS
systems will eventually be replaced
with electronic or eCASS with its
advanced electronic testing capabili-
ties while maintaining or enhancing
test fidelity and performance.
"I have never been with a group
that has faced as many challenges as
this one," said Heyn.
"They are unmatched in the
industry. Over the years, Program
Manager Air (PMA) 260 has asked us
to support other TPS programs that
ran into problems. PMA recognizes us
as a center of excellence. We still have
a lot of avionics to test out there."
The team has also developed soft-
ware for the Reconfigurable and
Transportable (RT) CASS used only

by the U.S. Marines. This effort
began in 2002 with the Lockheed
Martin prototype RTCASS stations
and has continued through support of
the Boeing production stations.
The team is also responsible for
developing TPS software and relat-
ed tools for CASS TPS migration to
RTCASS. More than 750 CASS TPSs
are being translated to RTCASS.

chief petty officer has been working

"The engineers design it on paper,
and I build the prototype," he said.

Lack of supplemental funding poses problems for Pentagon
By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
Because Congress has yet
to pass a supplemental
funding bill, the Defense
Department must start taking
measures to ensure uninter-
rupted war operations, Pentagon
Press Secretary Geoff Morrell
said July 14.
If Congress doesn't act on the
fiscal 2010 request for supple-
mental war funding, Defense
Department employees may not
get paid, Morrell said during a
Defense Secretary Robert Gates
is disappointed that Congress
did not pass the supplemental
spending bill before its Fourth of
July break, Morrell told report-
"He's very concerned about
the predicament that puts us
in," he said. "And in order to
assure that war operations are
not interrupted, the services will
now have to begin cash-flowing
operating costs for war activities
using their base budgets." This
means that the services will
begin borrowing money from
fourth-quarter accounts to pay
for current obligations, but even
that won't be enough, he added.
"We project that certain Army
and Marine Corps accounts will
run dry in August," Morrell said.
"So we urgently need Congress
to pass the supplemental before
members leave town for the next
break in August."
In the meantime, he added,
the department is obligated
to begin planning what to do
if Congress does not pass the
spending measure. "Needless to
say, all of this is extraordinarily
disruptive to the department,"
This is not the first time this
has happened, Morrell said.
"While we have faced this cir-
cumstance in years past, the
situation we find ourselves in
this year is much more difficult,
because it comes so late in the fis-
cal year," he explained. The fiscal
year ends Sept. 30.
"The department has a supreme
obligation to protect this nation
and support the hundreds of
thousands of personnel that are
deployed in harm's way," Morrell
said. "We will take every step pos-
sible to fulfill these obligations in
the months ahead until this mat-
ter is settled in Washington.
"It may involve asking a lot
of hard-working people in this
department to report to duty
without an ability to pay them, or
other extreme measures we would
rather avoid," he continued. "But
we will get the job done, includ-
ing in Iraq and Afghanistan and
wherever else we operate around

Two-week bug zapper training at NECE
By Lt. j.g. Tracy Mejeoumov
Navy Entomology Center of Excellence PAO
As Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen
and Marines deploy for
ian assistance, and other mili-
tary operations, they likely face
an increased risk of exposure to
insect-borne diseases such as
malaria and dengue fever.
To combat this risk, the
Operational Entomology Training
(OET) course is conducted by
the Navy Entomology Center
of Excellence (NECE) at NAS
OET is a two-week course
designed to teach military person-
nel such as preventive medicine
technicians, entomologists, and
environmental health officers, the
techniques to establish a tempo-
rary public health pest manage-
ment program under the condi-
tions often associated with mili-
OET was conducted June 14-25
with 11 students representing
commands from Norfolk, Va.;
San Diego, Camp Lejeune, N.C.;
Jacksonville; and Ramstein Air

HM1 Jesse Evans, from the Navy Entomology Center of Excellence on
board NAS Jacksonville, provides instruction to HM3 Dominic Ladmirault,
of Navy Environmental and Preventive Medicine Unit Two, on the tech-
niques of pesticide application.
During the first week, students
received classroom instruction on
topics such as vector-borne dis-
eases, insect identification, pes-
ticide application and vector sur-
"OET addresses establishing
a pest management program in
an operational setting. An effec-
tive pest management program
can reduce exposure to vector-
borne diseases and allows mili-
tary units to focus on their mis-
sion rather than annoying bugs,"
said HM1 Robyn Murillo, an OET
instructor from NECE.
During the second week, stu-
dents participated in the field por-
tion of OET, which was held at
Camp Blanding Joint Training
Center in Starke, Fla. Field

tion equipment in scenarios they

"I liked OET because of the
hands-on experience. Since I'm a
little new to the preventive medi-
cine community, OET gave me a
great deal of confidence in operat-
ing and troubleshooting the sur-
veillance and control equipment,"
said HN Darius Davis.
"The program is challenging,
but the knowledge and skills pro-
vided enable students to protect
human health and morale in a
safe, effective and environmental-
ly sound manner," said Lt. Cmdr.
Jeffrey Stancil, the NECE opera-
tions department head.

Thanks to the hard work of the
squadron's aviation safety team,
led by Lt. Rob Hoffacker, this
training evolution shed the "death

instead, conducted a safety stand
down that was challenging and
informative. Working closely with
Lt. Emily Eley and AWF1 Chris

"Maintenance and support
personnel competed against
other work centers in a series of
real-time safety drills set up in
Hangar 511. At the same time,
combat aircrews matched their
survival skills against each other
at the NAS Jax Aircrew Survival
Training Center (ASTC),"
"The stand down involved every
member of the squadron in drills
and practical exercises that cre-
ated a high level of interactivity
and 'esprit de corps.' Members of

information than that normally
imparted in a traditional class-
AO1 Michael Debacke judged maintainer events at the VP-5 Safety

The event began in Hangar
1000 with short, informative safe-
ty briefs. Trooper Rod Elder from
the Florida Highway Patrol gave a
dynamic presentation on drinking
Using a VP-5 volunteer, he
demonstrated a field sobriety test
with specially designed goggles
to simulate the negative effects of
alcohol on a driver's coordination.
The demonstration provoked some
laughter as the squadron watched
one of their own fail miserably
at simple tasks. Yet the demon-
stration conveyed a clear warning
against the dangerous realities
associated with driving under the
influence of alcohol. Other briefs
discussed the 101 Critical Days of
Summer and recreational safety.
Maintenance and support per-
sonnel mustered in the hangar
for their Olympic competitions
that included scenarios for first-
aid, a fuel spill, a battery spill, a
man-down drill, a thermal run-
away battery drill, a P-3C auxil-
iary power unit start-up drill and
a support equipment preventive
Work centers rotated from sta-
tion-to-station and selected a dif-
ferent team leader for each sce-
nario. AT3 Hunter Scruggs com-
mented, "Having a different, ran-
domly assigned person in charge
of each drill allowed everyone in
the shop to take a leadership role.
The dynamic duty assignments
tested the crews' resource man-
agement skills and more accurate-
ly simulated real-world scenarios."
Each shop worked together to
analyze and resolve each problem.
They judged on their accurate and
timely response to each situation.
The VP-5 aircrews competed

stroke relay, an anti-exposure-suit
relay race, a full-flight-gear buddy
tow relay race and a first-aid sce-

"The buddy tow was the most exhaustive, since it was conducted in full
flight gear with two air crewmen per crew towing each other two lengths
of the pool. The anti-exposure-suit drill required three crewmen to cor-
rectly don and doff a cold-water immersion suit."
The survival events concluded with a robust first-aid scenario super-
vised by the staff of ATSC.
S%. ."The first-aid scenario tested our crew's ability to successfully work
together. We were debriefed on our treatments by an expert instructor
and the suggestions he offered made this the most educational part of the
Safety Olympics for me. While the scenario was for a downed aircrew in a
a. .remote location, most of the skills we practiced could be used in any envi-
ronment," said AWV2 Niels Baumgartner.
The Safety Olympics concluded with the trophy presentations by VP-5

It was another success-

by a handful of dedicated
This year's theme of
"SonQuest Rainforest" took
the children on a journey
through the jungle trans-
porting them into a vivid
rainforest environment of
jungle sounds, sights and
Some of the activities
included arts and crafts,
classroom lessons, music
sessions and games.
"VBS is held each year
for military children so they
can spend a week in an
atmosphere to learn about
Christ and their salvation.
The five-day teachings are
parables set in a rainfor-
est or what we've tried to
create as a rainforest here
at the chapel center," said
VBS coordinator Grace
As each day began, the
children were ushered into
a main room where they
were seated on the floor to
participate in an energiz-
ing sing-along session, fol-
lowed by the lesson of the
day presented by Chaplain
(Lt.) Kevin Norton. From
there, they were split up
according to age groups
and sent to various plac-
es to create such arts and
crafts as monkeys, animal
masks and wind chimes, to
music class to prepare for
a presentation for families

by the male volunteers who

"It's really fun and we
make awesome things and
learn about God. We made
rainsticks and monkeys.
The best thing was learn-
ing about Jesus," said nine-
year-old Mark Louvat.
"I really liked meeting
new friends here, learn
about Jesus and sing and
worship him. I hope I get to
come back again next year,"
added 10-year-old Kayla

From V-30U Public Affairs
VP-30 bid farewell to Cmdr. William
Art Doney Jr. during the June 25
retirement ceremony honoring his
naval career. Lt. Cmdr. Joseph Opp was
master of ceremonies and Cmdr. Gordon
Wilson gave the opening remarks. Guest
speaker was Capt. Timothy Brewer, yet
many friends and family also delivered
anecdotes about Doney's career.
Raised in Turkeytown, Pa., Doney
graduated with distinction from the
United States Naval Academy in 1988
with a Bachelor's degree in Aeronautical
In 1990, he received his "Wings of
Gold" after completing training in Corpus
Christi, Texas. Doney reported to the West
Coast Fleet Replacement Squadron VP-31
for initial training in the P-3C Orion air-
craft. Upon completion of training, he
reported to the "Screaming Eagles" of VP-1
at NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii in August
During his tour with VP-1, he qualified
as patrol plane commander, patrol plane
mission commander and instructor pilot.
He served in command services, as qual-
ity assurance officer and NATOPS pilot.
Doney made three deployments with VP-1.
In 1993, Doney reported for FRS instruc-
tor training at VP-30, where he served
as replacement pilot performance, pilot
tactics, assistant operations officer and a
In 1996, Doney reported to the
Commander, Iceland Defense Force in
Keflavik, Iceland as the admiral's aide.
In 1998, he reported to the Naval War
College in Newport, R.I. where he received
his Master of Arts in National Strategic
Studies and participated in the first Navy
Operation Planner course.
In 2000, Doney returned to Hawaii after
completing refresher training at VP-30 and
reported to the "Golden Eagles" of VP-9 in
Doney was next assigned as the VP liai-
son officer to the Combined Forces Air
Component commander to coordinate the
first VP operations overland Afghanistan.
In 2002, Doney reported to Commander,
Task Force 67, in Naples, Italy, where he
served as future operations officer and cur-
rent operations officer. He was involved in
planning and execution of operations in
Bosnia, Kosovo, Operation Iraqi Freedom,
and the Global War on Terror.
In 2004, he reported to Commander,
Sixth Fleet in Gaeta, Italy and Naples,
Italy as the maritime patrol operations
officer and battle watch captain. Doney
reported back to VP-30 in 2005 as the VR
detachment officer in charge (OIC). After
six months, Doney supervised the detach-

this annual event, with
the other programs taking
place in Annapolis, Md. and

supported the week-long
event for the past eight
years. MWR provides the
cadets with sailboats, res-

The program is for
JROTC students ages 15-18
who are selected according
to their grades, ability to
get along with others and
desire to learn to sail.
The students are housed
in the NAS Jax Bachelor
Officers Quarters. The pro-
gram begins in a typical
classroom setting where the
students learn basic boat
handling techniques, boat-
ing safety, weather condi-
tions and sailing terminol-
ogy. They must also pass
a deep-water swim test.
The NAS Jax Galley serves
meals at breakfast and din-
ner, and sends box lunches
to the marina.
"In the evenings, cadets
visit the base bowl-
ing alley and swimming
pool. We even worked in a

Award winning author visits NAS Jax to learn about energy conservation
By Kaylee LaRocque

July 14 to gather informa-
tion about energy conser-
vation efforts on a naval
installation for an upcom-
ing book she is writing
about future energy in
with energy special-
ists from NAS Jax, Navy
Region Southeast (NRSE)

and toured several facilities

"I am here to learn about
how the military is reduc-
ing energy use in build-
ings and what they do in
terms of energy research.
A lot of people talk about
what we have to do to com-
bat climate change and
reduce our carbon footprint
but it's usually in terms of
sacrifice something that
moves us backwards and
makes us less productive,"
said Koerth-Baker. "But
talking to scientists and
researchers what I find is
that it's actually progress
and we're moving forward.
So I'm looking at how will
we make energy in the
future, how we will get the
services we want with less
energy and how that's going
to change the way we live
30-40 years from now."
During her visit, Koerth-
Baker asked how energy
use in buildings is changing
on base and how NAS Jax
uses metering to monitor
"Metering is the way we
can see what facilities use

what people are using, we
can address it whether it

Lee Merrill went on to
explain how base util-
ity bills are handled.
"NAVFAC SE gets a utility
bill from the electric compa-
ny each month. Then we act
as the Navy's utility com-
pany on the installation. We
work with Public Works to
handle the billing and allo-
cation of funds for the com-
mand bill payers on the sta-
tion. NAVFAC SE pays the
bill to the electric company
and then we charge each
facility for their usage," he
Merrill also discussed
how the Navy is upgrad-
ing the metering system
at NAS Jax. "We will be
installing smart meters
which will eliminate the
need for someone to physi-
cally read them. With the
new smart meters, readings
will be taken every 15 min-
utes and be on a network
where the consumption can
be viewed continuously. So,
instead of getting a bill a
month later and trying to
determine where all the
energy was used, we will
see what's going in real
time and find out why there
was an increase in energy
use at specific times."
"As part of the Economic
Recovery Reinvestment Act
that the president signed
when he took office, NRSE
received $30 million to
install the smart meters at
11 bases," he continued.
Koerth-Baker also asked
how metering contributes to
changing individual behav-
ior towards energy conser-
"It's huge," said Siemer.
"Adm. Tim Alexander,
commander, NRSE meets
with all installation com-
manders monthly to discuss
energy initiatives and get
the word out to commands
about conservation efforts.
We've also been posting our
monthly electric bill on the
marquee at the front gate
which generates a lot of
interest. And, we distribute
graphs from the past three
years showing our monthly
consumption to the tenant
commands and publish arti-
cles in the base newspaper.
When we get the facts out
and they see the figures, it
makes people more aware
about energy conservation."
Another initiative at NAS
Jax is that each of the 117
commands here is required
to have a trained energy
building monitor. These
monitors are usually junior
Sailors who are trained and

skin from the sun's harmful

July is UV Safety Month, and, eye
doctors across the nation are urging
Americans to protect their eyes and their
children's eyes by wearing sunglasses and
"Recent studies have shown that pro-
longed exposure to the sun's invisible,
high-energy, ultraviolet rays without pro-
can lead to vision loss, such as cataracts
and age-related macular degeneration,"
said Cmdr. Chidiebere Ekenna-Kalu, the
Officer in Charge and optometrist at Naval
Branch Health Clinic (NBHC), Albany, Ga.
"During the summer months the level of
ultraviolet radiation is three times greater
than in the winter.
Sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat
are the best defense system for your eyes
against sunlight and harmful UV rays. To
be effective, both must be worn every time
you're outside for prolonged periods of time,
even when it's overcast.
"The most important thing is to purchase
sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of
UV-A and UV-B rays," said Ekenna-Kalu.
"Don't be misled by the color of the lens or
the price tag dangling from the frame."
The ability to block UV light is not
dependent on the darkness of the lens. UV
protection can come from adding chemicals
to the lens material during manufacturing
or from a chemical coating applied to the
lens surface. And as for the cost, many $10
sunglasses provide equal or greater protec-
tion than a $100 pair. With expensive sun-
ity and options such as scratch-resistant
coatings, and not necessarily protective UV
ray blocking ability.
In addition to the damage caused by
repeated sun exposure overtime, you need
to protect your eyes from acute damage
caused by a single day in the sun.
Excessive exposure to ultraviolet light
reflected off sand, snow or pavement can
burn the eye's surface.
Similar to sunburns, eye surface burns
usually disappear within a couple of days,

month, they will go in and
reassess what they've been
doing and try to fix the prob-
lem. Maybe the operational
tempo picked up or an A/C
unit needed repairing. It
gives us an insight when we
do this analysis."
"And, what they learn

on a personal level too. It's
such a positive program," he
NRSE Energy Program
Manager Brad Clark also
added some insight. "The
Navy, through the budget-
ing process, gets a certain
amount of dollars each year.
Every dollar that's spent on
the energy bill is a dollar we
can't spend on the Sailor -
fuel for training on the ship
or airplane, buying weapons
or building new housing. It
directly effects the Sailors
and the amount of money
they need to do their mis-
sion," he said.
"We have to pay the elec-
tric bill. When we reduce

"Most of the build-
ings have motion sen-
sors for lights and vending
machines. We also received
$65 million dollars to install
(solar) panels at 11 bases,"
"Every base will get them
but we're being smart about
it and the vast majority will
go where we can generate
the highest savings for the
Navy. In the state of Florida,
our highest electric rates are
at Key West. So they will get
more solar panels."
NAS Jax also partners
with the local electric com-
pany JEA and gas company
TECO People's Gas on ener-
gy conservation projects.
"We partner with them
to do utility energy servic-
es contracts. They finance
large energy projects for us
by loaning us the money and
the money we save in utility
bills is used to pay off the
loan. It's a great partnership
and NAS Jax is a leader in
this initiative," said Clark.
"This is a great way to
install new lighting, HVAC
and it's also a benefit to the
utility companies because
we reduce our load on them
and that's less megawatts
they have to generate."
The base also has a
fleet of 45 Global Electric
Motorcars that command
personnel drive around
the station. "We even have
one that has solar pan-
els and runs solely on sun
power to recharge batteries.
Technology is not readably
affordable but someone has
to take the lead on these
projects," said Plante.
NAS Jax has also initi-
ated a master plan that
calls for footprint reduction.
"This means we build new

ings. We continue to con-

struct new energy-efficient
facilities at NAS Jax and
consolidate like commands/
functions into single facili-
ties," said Siemer.
"Of course, we still have
several buildings here that
were built in the 1940s.
They present problems
because when they were
built there was no AC and
they are poorly insulated but
we are constantly looking at
more creative ways to save
energy in these buildings."
Other factors that affect
energy conservation efforts
here are training simula-
tors, computer systems
and the production facil-
ity Fleet Readiness Center
"As a naval installation,
we conduct a lot of train-
ing here with simulators.
Those types of facilities we
really don't have any control
over them. It requires AC
to keep the components cool
and those kinds of facili-
ties do not lend themselves
well to energy conservation,"
"And, our computer sys-
tems required the servers

hard ones to do upgrade
But new ways and new
technology for energy con-
servation in the future are
continuously being looked at
on the naval air station.
"NRSE has adopted a
model from Penn state
called the energy pyramid.
At the bottom is conserva-
tion which is a huge piece
meaning getting people to

next piece is efficiency if
you do have to have lights

k AI The Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis (DCTD) is seeking energetic and dedicated
candidates for the position of Clinical Fellow/Senior Clinical Fellow in the DCTD Clinical
A C R objective of the ADTTP is to provide medical oncologists advanced training in state-of-the-
C Science principles and technologies of developmental therapeutics by utilizing the unique
Resources available within the NCI.
SIT U T E The successful candidate will participate in clinical research conducted at the NIH Clinical
_ __ ~Center in the Developmental Therapeutics Clinic (DTC) of the NCI. The program will provide
an excellent opportunity to refine skills in clinical investigation including novel strategies for

and pertinent laboratory correlatives. The trainee will spend 40-60 percent of effort in clinical investigation involving inpatients and outpatients
at the NIH, including a minimum of 1.5 days in DTC activities. In addition, the trainee will spend up to 40% effort in the DCTD Cancer Therapy
Evaluation Program (CTEP) (http://ctep.cancer.gov). The CTEP component of the training will broaden the trainee's knowledge of new drug
development by providing a unique opportunity to learn principles and concepts of agent prioritization, drug development strategies, protocol

Candidates must meet all of the following requirements:
* M.D. or an equivalent degree with a license to practice medicine in the United States
* Completion of subspecialty training in Medical Oncology at a US accredited institution
* Board certification or eligibility in Medical Oncology
