It. j.g. Miller, the Tactical Coordinator for CAC-11,
was proud to be a part of the coordinated effort. "The
shot was a culmination of all the hard work and train-
iiiL ofVP-5, VP. -l and VP-40 aircrews and maintainers.
From the maintenance department keeping our aircraft
flying, ordnance teams loading the weapons, coupled
with our training department developing the necessary
skills and finally, the aircrew for executing the shot -
we all did our part."
Acoustic Operator AWO1 Adams said, "This hap-
pened exactly how we trained back home before we
deployed."
VP-5 Gunner CWO4 Gerald Skees said, "The Mad Fox
AOs are very excited and proud of the accomplishments
during Odyssey Dawn. The role of the P-3 ordnance
community is often over looked, but these are the kind
of events we train for. All of the AOs from VP-5, VP-26
and VP-40 have shown that they possess the knowledge
and .kll, to deliver ordnance on target, on time."

and his staff coordinated aircrew,

great effort by everyone involved.
The entire MPRF community
quickly mobilized to give us the
support we needed. This was a great
accomplishment both in the air and
on the ground." Schebler remarked.
Whether conducting counter
narcotics operations, supporting
overseas contingency operations,


or supporting NATO operations, the "Mad Foxes" have
been at the tip of the spear supporting United States
interests overseas.
VP-5 Commanding Officer Cmdr. Jason Jorgensen
stated, "It was awesome to see Sailors from different
squadrons come together and perform as a well-oiled
machine while conducting around-the-clock flight
operations. It validates our training programs and high-
lights the team-oriented spirit of the Sailors. I couldn't
be more proud of our men and women who represent
Sailors, Soldiers, and Airmen across the world serving
our country everyday."
The Mad Foxes P-3C Orion operated in conjunc-
tion with a U.S. Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt attack air-
craft and guided-missile destroyer USS Barry (DDG-52)

the A-10 destroying one and forcing the other to be
abandoned. Barry provided situational awareness for
the aircraft by managing the airspace and maintaining

HSL-44 'Closers'


deploy aboard Boone

By Lt. j.g. Michael Scanlon
HSL-44 Public Affairs Officer

The "Closers" of Helicopter Anti-Submarine
Squadron Light (HSL) 44 Detachment Four departed
for southern waters April 1 aboard the guided-missile
frigate USS Boone (FFG-28) in support of the multina-
tional South American naval exercise UNITAS 2011.
UNITAS is an annual joint exercise that will take
the detachment throughout South America including
Brazil, Chile, Peru, Uruguay and Panama. The cruise
includes transiting both the Straits of Magellan and
the Panama Canal.
It provides valuable experience operating with
Sallied navies to enhance opera-
."" ,,tional capabilities and
strengthen existing partner-
ships. One of the Closers
Pilots, Lt. Colin Sullivan,
said he is looking forward
to interacting with our allies
and learning more about their
'- -.". naval capabilities. "Magnum
4 5, an SH-60B Seahawk, is our
det bird for the next six months aboard Boone. Our 14
maintainers will ensure we fly safely and eff[e: tiel'.
during UNI I I.',."
Detachment Four completed workups for their
deployment at the Atlantic Underwater Test and
Evaluation Center (AUTEC) in early March, where they
honed their skills at anti-submarine warfare and anti-
surface warfare. while at AU I F.. they expended four
HeJllr- r niil ,Irt and conducted numerous simulated
torpedo engagements in support of these missions.
Detachment Four's nickname, Closers, comes from
the fact that Jpplr,.. rmnt will be the last to fly the
SH-60B helicopter by HSL-44 which is transitioning
to Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 74,
utilizing the MH-60R, on June 9. Detachment member
Lt. Moses Feliz said this is a historic final chapter for
HSL-44 of which he is proud to be a player.

The Navy's first airship was an inept experiment in LTA

The Navy contracted with Connecticut Aircraft Company in 1915 for a 175-ft., lighter-than-air (LTA) dirigible to serve as a "school ship." Based on an Austrian design,
DN (Dirigible Non-rigid) 1 suffered numerous delays. During construction of DN-1, the Navy also authorized the construction of a floating hangar to be delivered to
NAS Pensacola. Flight tests revealed the DN-1 airship was overweight, its envelope leaked and the power plant functioned poorly. One of the two engines had to be
removed to make the DN-1 light enough to get off the ground. Her first flight was April 20, 1917. During an attempt to tow her over water to increase lift, the airship
was severely damaged. Considered not worth repairing, DN-1 was deflated, removed from the inventory and broken up.


Detailer call brings fear

By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor. L ^ II-- fso^90%,.


I'm not sure to what extent most
civilians understand that Uncle
Sam is a horribly fickle fellow.
Sure, you know that military
families often move and live apart
from our spouses. And, by God,
you know that we get free health-
care (Remember: nothing is ever
really "free," and military families
pay with sacrifice). But do civilians
know just how much this lifestyle
keeps us in limbo about everything
from our holiday plans to our next
zip code?
For instance, when I was in high
school, my Navy pilot dad came up
for orders. This is military speak
for "it's time to move." By the way,
there is a reason why transfers are
called "orders" because you don't
have a choice. Oh, the military will
ask you about your preferences,
and sometimes they might even
give you what feels like a "choice"
in the matter, but in the end, Uncle
Sam sends you where Uncle Sam
wants you. Period.
One day, Dad came home and
said we were moving to Japan. As
soon as I got my mind around that,
he came home and said we were
moving to Bremerton, Wash. I began
to imagine life in Seattle and where
I might go to college. Then, by what
felt like the next day but was prob-
ably several weeks later, Dad came
home again with news. We weren't
moving anywhere. Dad was going to
New Jersey and Mom, my brothers
and me were staying put.
My in-laws had a similar expe-
rience before they were stationed


in Meridian, Mississippi, where
Dustin was born. Which is to say,
this is par for the course.
In fact, last week (April Fool's
Day, to be exact) marked the three-
year anniversary of Dustin coming
home, pulling out a kitchen chair
and telling me, "I think you need to
sit down. In June, we're moving to
Bangor, Maine."
He guessed that I might need
to sit down because I didn't even
know Bangor, Maine, was an
option. I was 99 percent sure we
were moving to Virginia. But I was
100 percent sure we were not mov-
ing for at least another year. We
already had reservations at a near-
by resort for Christmas.
After 35 years of this, I've come
to the conclusion that detailers
(Godfathers of the military who
have the ability to find service
members a new career path and
their families a new zip code) do
their best work with a blind fold, a
set of darts and a map of the world.
Detailers also are scapegoats for
husbands afraid to come home
with bad news ("Honey, how could
I not say we'd be prepared to move
on Monday? The detailer told me
there was no choice!").
Military spouses rarely meet
or know their service member's
detailer. And for good reason: we
have nothing but 4-letter words for
them.
Also, keeping the relationship
impersonal and ambiguous makes
it easier for the detailer to give


families really bad news. It's much
easier to tell a family they are mov-
ing again for the eighth time in ten
years if you don't know their chil-
dren's names or that they have a
blind, three-legged dog.
Yet, even with all the mystery
of the detailer, we always feel his
presence. Especially in phone calls
like the following:
Dustin: Hey, what's up? How are
you?
Me: Um, I'm fine. What's going
on?
Dustin: Why do you think some-
thing is going on?
Me: Because you're calling me in
the middle of the day.
Dustin: Well, I do have some
strange news.
Me: Good or bad?
Dustin: I talked to my detailer
today...
I didn't need to hear anything
more. My cheeks went cold as I
silently cursed a man this detail-
er I have never met. Until that
moment, I thought I knew what our
future held. Now I'm not so sure.
Will there be a deployment? A new
job?
Except this time, I feel like we
have beaten Uncle Sam at his own
game. Because the kids and I have
chosen to stay in Bangor, even
when Dustin takes orders in other
locations. Now that's some sense
of control. Our zip code will not be
chosen by a game of darts. Joke's
on Uncle Sam!
Only, I'm not laughing yet.

HSL-44 achieves 'Safe for Flight' milestone

By LL j.g. Michael Scanlon
HSL-44 Public Affairs Officer


Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light (HSL)
44 completed a major milestone March 21 in their
transition to becoming Helicopter Maritime Strike
Squadron (HSM) 74 when they completed the first
operational flight of their new MH-60R Seahawk heli-
copter.
The "Swamp Foxes" received their "Safe for Flight"
certification for the new aircraft on March 17 and flew
their first three new "Romeo" aircraft the following
Monday.
HSL-44 Commanding Officer Cmdr. Sean Haley
stated, "This is another significant step in our squad-
ron's transition from an expeditionary, detachment-
based squadron employing the SH-60B to one employ-
ing the new MH-60R in support of a carrier air wing.
"I could not be more pleased with the efforts put
forth by all hands to achieve this significant achieve-
ment in our transition. This marks the culmination
of more than two years of planning and preparation
to become the first successful east coast HSL-to-HSM
transition."
Master Chief Carlos Gonzalez, the squadron's main-
tenance master chief, pointed out that due to the hard
work of everyone in the squadron, HSL-44 was able to
achieve this major accomplishment a full six months
ahead of schedule.
Maintenance officer Lt. Cmdr. Edward Fossati con-
tinued the praise of the squadron's efforts, saying the
speed at which it was accomplished "was a credit to all
our maintenance personnel."
Despite the limited manning during the transition,
HSL-44 received outstanding scores across all depart-
ments, receiving praise from HSMWL inspectors and
satisfactorily passing all practical and drills.
HSL-44 will officially become HSM-74 following its
change of command on June 9 and align with Carrier
Air Wing Three (CVW 3).

Hey, MoneyChic!
Hey, MoneyChic!
I see coupons in the paper and pass people rum-
maging through coupon envelopes in the supermarket
aisles, but I've never really ventured into using cou-
pons. It seems like a lot of work, is it really worth it?
MoneyChic says: I must admit that I am a "cou-
poner." Every Sunday, I cut out the new coupons and
arrange them in a large notebook with clear plastic
sleeves (This makes it easier to find the coupons.).
I only cut out the coupons for products that my
family uses and I make sure to purge from the book
expired coupons on a regular basis. Yes, this does take
time, but for me it feels worth it. Every two weeks I
typically save between $20 to $30 dollars off of my gro-
cery bill. There are many people that take their cou-
poning to an advanced level, saving up to 50 percent
off their bill but this takes considerable effort.
Dive into the internet and read some of the blogs
dedicated to coupons in order to learn some real tricks
of the trade. One thing I learned recently is that Publix
accepts two coupons per item and also honors com-
petitors' coupons.
I still prefer the commissary, where you start with
lower prices and use the coupons on top of these auto-
matic discounts. Good luck on your clipping!

command of Special Projects Patrol
Squadron One (VPU-1) April 1, relieving
Cmdr. Robert Lacy during a ceremo-
ny in Hangar 117 at NAS Jacksonville.
Boyer became the 16th commanding
officer since the squadron was estab-
lished in 1996.
Army Col. Mike Gawkins, deputy
commanding officer for Aviation Tactics
Evaluation Group at Fort Bragg, N.C.,
was the guest speaker.
Lacy assumed command of VPU-1 in
March 2010. According to Lacy, his tour
as commanding officer was extremely
rewarding.
"This is without a doubt the best
squadron in the United States Navy.
The 'Old Buzzards' are blessed with the
best, brightest and most talented Sailors
from the community. We are responsi-
ble for delivering, from soup to nuts, the
latest systems, technology and training
to the Fleet. What we do would not be
possible without our Sailors' dedica-
tion and the processes we are allowed
by NAVAIR. We pin more chiefs, win
more retention awards and have greater
job satisfaction than most commands
dream of. Our Sailors care greatly for
the mission and understand their piv-
otal role in the fight. Sailors throughout
the Fleet want to be Old Buzzards."
As Lacy prepared to pass the torch,
his confidence in his former executive
officer was clear. "Lee is ready to take
this squadron to the next level. I have
the greatest confidence in his ability to
do just that."

'Red Lancers' celebrate family day

1P-?0 Pub ffa/t i Officer ME g 9 I2 A 1


The VP-10 Red Lancers host-
ed a Command Family Day for
Sailors, families and friends of
the squadron March 25.
Questions like, "What does
your spouse do?" or "Where
does your mommy/daddy
work?" will no longer be
answered with vague, one-
word responses.
The event was designed to
highlight the day-to-day tasks
that VP-10 personnel carry out
to successfully complete vari-
ous missions. The goal was
to give families and friends a
better understanding of what
occurs at Hangar 1000 and
beyond.
As families arrived at the
afternoon event, they were
given tours the squadron spac-
es, as well as climbing aboard a
static display of the P-3C Orion.
They could also try on vari-
ous pieces of safety and sur-
vival gear, speak with a variety
of maintenance and operations
personnel and even try their

hand at piloting one of the full-
visual P-3 flight training simu-
lators.
The event was coordinated
by the VP-10 Family Readiness
Group (FRG) with the purpose
of strengthening the relation-
ships between families with-
in the command and to raise
money to benefit the relief of
Japanese tsunami victims.


The FRG plays an important
role within any unit. Their role
is to plan and conduct social,
informational and morale-
building activities to enhance
family readiness.
The FRG also helps the Red
Lancer team by enabling the
Total Navy Family Community
to meet mission and military
lifestyle challenges.


Isn't it amazing how placing some bubble wrap on the floor of
Hangar 1000 attracts so many children? They were stompin' and
poppin' all afternoon at Red Lancer Family Day.


As deployment rapidly
approaches for VP-10, squadron
personnel embraced the chance
to have their families come to
work with them for a day.
As VP-10 Executive Officer
Cmdr. Timothy Parker
describes it, "This event pro-
vides the opportunity for our
Lancer families to witness
firsthand what our sailors do


on a daily basis. So, as we pre-
pare for deployment, our fami-
lies will gain a greater appre-
ciation and understanding of
the duties Lancers perform as
they execute their assigned
missions."
The Red Lancers are sched-
uled to begin a six-month
deployment to the Southwest
Asia in May.


Step through Trident history

Heritage.
While stairs leading up to the

As the ground crew continues its landing site preparation, the pilot flies MZ-3A

NAVY BRINGS BLIMP SQUADRON BACK


MX-3A AIRSHIP

MOORS AT NAS JAX

By Clark Pierce
Editor

The only lighter-than-air (LTA)
platform currently in the Defense
Department aviation inventory land-
ed at NAS Jacksonville April 1 to join
the Centennial of Naval Aviation cel-
ebration during the Maritime Patrol
and Reconnaissance Force (MPRF)
Symposium.
Assigned to Navy Test and Evaluation
Squadron (VXS) One, in conjunction
with Naval Research Laboratory and
Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR),
the MZ-3A airship represents a return
of an airship to naval aviation.
Ilomeported at Joint Base McGuire-
Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, the MZ-3A
is used as an airborne laboratory for


military and other government agen-
cies' science and technology experi-
ments.
"The airship's slow airspeed and low
vibration are qualities that make the
MZ-3A a useful platform for experi-
ments," said NAVAIR Naval Air Warfare
Division Public Affairs Officer Billy Ray
Brown.
"Its reconnaissance capabilities
were used during the 2010 Deepwater
Horizon crisis response, when it was
dispatched to the Gulf of Mexico to
assist with oil tracking and recovery
coordination," added Brown.
The Navy's history with dirigibles and
blimps stretches from 1917 to 1961.
ZP squadrons performed anti-sub-
marine warfare, maritime surveillance,
convoy escort and early warning picket
duty.
By the end of World War II, the Navy
operated 15 LTA squadrons flying the
K-ship platform. ZPG-3W was the larg-


est and last blimp built by Goodyear for
the Navy. The 403-ft. long, helium-filled
airship served until the LTA program
was discontinued in November 1961.
The Navy LTA program was resur-
rected March 2, 2010 when the MZ-3A
airship took to the sky over Lakehurst.
The MZ-3A was manufactured
by American Blimp Corporation in
Hillsboro, Oregon, and is based on their
A-170 commercial blimps that you may
have seen hovering over sports venues.
The Navy disestablished its last LTA
squadron in 1961. As such, according
to Brown, "The pilots, maintainers and
ground crew for MZ-3A are contracted
through Integrated Systems Solutions
Inc."
Brown would not discuss specific
research and development projects


involving the MZ-3A.
Lt. Rob Marcum is the VXS-1 airship
liaison officer who worked with NAVAIR
to bring the airship back into the Navy
as a working platform for science and
technology..
"I'm a P-3 and C-12 pilot -but am not
certified for the MZ-3A. As you can see,
it's unique in its flight characteristics
and its flight controls. Unlike a P-3 that
can fly on station for about three hours,
the MZ-3A can hover over water for
what seems like forever. We're also cur-
rently supporting Army and Air Force
interest in our LTA platform."
Marcum added, "We're pleased to be
part of the centennial and the MPRF
Symposium at NAS lax to remind every-
one of the Navy's significant LTA patrol
heritage."


Unlike a helicopter that uses 100 percent power to hover, the MZ-3A airship's
"hoverability" is quiet, comfortable and can last for hours.


Ground crew make final adjustments on the MZ-3A airship's tiedown chains.

The pilot and ground crew synchronize their movements to bring the MZ-3A safe-
ly down to earth April 1 at NAS Jacksonville.


Executing a well-rehearsed scramble fot the nose cone control lines, ground crew
will now take commands from the chief via hand signals.

From Page 1


-. "It's really an exciting time. We're still in the devel-
opmental phase, but we are really enjoying flying
this aircraft," said P-8A test pilot Lt. Cmdr. Shannon
Hoover.
S"The P-8A will have a very positive impact for NAS
jax and we are thrilled to have been selected as the
east coast hub for this new aircraft," said Maclay.
"Along with the P-8A, NAS Jacksonville will be the
only air station to host the Navy's multi-mission train-
er for this airframe."
- The P-8A is the first Navy combat aircraft to be built
rrom the ground up on a commercial production line.
By leveraging Boeing's commercial 737 airframe and
flight systems, the program will reduce time and over-
ail cost for the Navy.
-Beginning in 2013, the P-8A Poseidon will replace
ie P-3C Orion as the Navy's long-range anti-sub-
marine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence,
Crveillance and reconnaissance aircraft capable of
Broad-area blue water and littoral operations.
The Poseidon follows a long list of previous fixed-


wing maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft,
including the P-3C Orion, PV2-4 Neptune, PBY-6A
Catalina and the S3-B Viking -all designed to secure
the Navy's maritime patrol capability.

Chief petty officers (CPO)
from various commands at NAS
Jacksonville gathered to celebrate
the 118th CPO Birthday April 1 by
participating in a morning colors
event at Building 1.
Donning their traditional khaki
uniform, they recited the Sailor's
Creed and the Chief's Pledge. The
chiefs also sang Anchors Aweigh as
Navy Band Southeast provided the
music.
NAS Jax Command Master Chief
CMDCM(AW/SW) Brad Shepherd
delivered remarks as the CPOs
gathered around the flagpole.
"We all have a history. We're
thankful for our jobs and our
nation. The events in the world
require us to be wherever we are
needed at a moment's notice," said


Shepherd.
"A lot of people have come before
us to pave the way. As we now head
into the future many of us will
soon be retiring, so we continue to
strive in keeping the Navy's leader-
ship strong."
Long before there were CPOs,
superiority among petty officers
on a ship would be decided by the
commanding officer (CO).
These appointed positions were
temporary and the CO had the
option to recommend a petty offi-
cer to a more permanent position.
The official paygrade of CPO was
not established until April 1,1893.
Many first class petty officers
were shifted to the chief paygrade
when the rank was created. As a
result, there was no "first" CPO.
On June 1, 1858, the paygrades
E8 and E9 were created, giving
birth to both senior and master

NAS Jacksonville celebrates





Women History Month


By AT3 Omari Janhrette
','.,ff Writer

Military and civilian personnel at NAS Jacksonville
took time to celebrate and recognize the historic
accomplishments of women in the military at the NAS
lax Officers' club March 30.
The special event with the theme of, "Our History
is our Strength" gave Sailors and civilians an oppor-
tunity to learn about accomplishments of brave and
inspirational women that dared to be different and
inspired others with their courage. Hosted by the NAS
Jacksonville Multi-Cultural Awareness Committee,
the luncheon featuring a slideshow of famous women
throughout history.
This year's guest speaker was Cmdr. Molly Boron,
incoming executive officer of the VP-16 'War Eagles."
NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jeffery Maclay
opened the ceremony by recognizing women who are
actively involved in leadership roles with extraordi-
nary and historic importance. Additionally, Maclay
mentioned diversity and how important women's roles
are in leadership positions. He then introduced Boron
to the podium.
Boron recalled how she was in high school when
the movie "Top Gun" came out and she decided then
that she wanted to become a naval fighter pilot. At the
time however, there were no women fighter pilots. It
wasn't until she was attending the Naval Academy that
the 1994 National Defense Authorization Act lifted the
restriction on women in combat fighter squadrons.
Since graduating from the United States Naval
Academy in 1995, Boron has assumed several lead-
ership positions throughout her career. Being the
captain of the varsity volleyball team at the Naval
Academy was just a step towards being a prominent
leader and an example for young women in the mili-
tary.
"My hope is that we recognize the women who
served before us and weren't recognized until later on.
I want young men and women to learn about our his-
tory and have an appreciation for the benefits and the
opportunities we have now," said Boron.
She also recognized several women in the audi-
ence who served as Women Accepted for Volunteer
Emergency Service (WAVES) years ago who helped
pave the way for other women serving in the military.
"It's nice to come to events like this and learn there
are so many successful women in the United States
Navy. It's really encouraging and it makes me want to
work even harder to obtain my goals," said AT2 Crystal
Coats after the event.

Women's



History



Month

By Suzanne Speight
CNRSE Public Affairs

The Navy Region Southeast (NRSE)
Multicultural Committee observed
Women's History Month March 31 by
paying tribute to some of their own.
Employees were encouraged to nomi-
nate an extraordinary woman, and 19
military and civilian women were rec-
ognized.
Chaplain (Lt.) Nancy Reese, direc-
tor of the NRSE Chaplains Religious
Enrichment Development Operation
(CREDO) program, was guest speaker,
along with Kathleen Alexander, wife of
Commander Navy Region Southeast
Rear Adm. Tim Alexander.
Reese said, "Today we acknowledge
groundbreakers of the past, thank the
heroines of today and inspire our lead-
ers of the future."
She spoke of women who chose to
defend freedom during a time when
their role was limited to the home.
"Throughout history women have
shown us through their actions that
they can be and do anything they have
dared to dream," Reese said.
More than 53,000 active-duty women
- 45,480 enlisted and 8,354 officers -
and more than 10,000 female reservists
serve in today's Navy, comprising more
than 16 percent of the force. Ninety-
five percent of Navy billets are open to
women, and they are assigned to ships;
afloat staffs; Naval construction force
units; aviation squadrons; and thanks
to a recent policy change, submarines.
Reese introduced Alexander, who

shared a quote, passed down to her
from her own mother, from Elizabeth
Cady Stanton's Solitude of Self address.
"No matter how much women prefer
to lean, to be protected and supported,
nor how much men desire to have them
do so, they must make the voyage of life
alone, and for safety in an emergency
they must know something of the laws
of navigation. To guide our own craft,
we must be captain, pilot, engineer;
with chart and compass to stand at the
wheel; to match the wind and waves
and know when to take in the sail, and
to read the signs in the firmament over
all."
The words were part of an address
Stanton gave to members of Congress in
1892. Alexander shared with the audi-
ence how the quote is still pertinent
today for women around the world, not-
ing that although women have made
substantial progress in increasing their
rights in the home, workplace, and
political sphere, there is still work to be
done.
Concluding the event, OS2 Jason
Crandell, of the NRSE Multicultural
Committee, presented each nomi-
nated "NRSE Extraordinary Woman"
with a certificate and flowers: Kathleen

Navy Run attracts hundreds


By Clark Pierce
Editor


More than 335 service mem-
bers, retirees, civilians and fam-
ily members turned out for the
sixth Captain Chuck Cornett 10K
Run and 5K Walk April 2 at NAS
Jacksonville. In addition to the
10-kilometer competitive run and
five-kilometer walk, there was a
runners' shoe and apparel fair in
the Navy Exchange (NEX) parking
lot.
Originally called the Navy Run,
the event was renamed after the
2004 death of Cornett, a former
NAS lax executive officer and avid
runner. Cornett participated in 96
inLarIlhonns, including the Boston
and Marine Corps marathons. A
co-founder of the Florida Striders
running club in 1978, he retired
from the U.S. Navy as a captain in
1980 after 30 years of service.
"We've got a great turnout, beau-
tiful weather and eager competi-
tors today," said NAS Jax Athletic
Director Tim McKinney, who coor-
dinated the run. "This is a great
way for people to get out in the
fresh air and be part of an excep-
tional fitness event. We couldn't
pull it off without the help of our
volunteers and sponsors."
After observing morning col-
ors, performed by Navy Band
Southeast, NAS Jacksonville
Executive Officer Capt. Bob
Sanders welcomed the runners and
then joined them to await the start-
ing gun.
The first man to cross the line
- in a photo finish was John
Metzgar followed ever so closely by
Sean McCormack. The first woman
to cross the 10K line was Denise
Metzgar.
There were 278 10K finishers (175
male/103 female). Top finishers in
the 10K were:

Naval

Hospital

recognized

for best

business

practices

By Jeanne Casey
,'H lax Deputy PAOC

The Naval Hospital
Jacksonville (NH Jax)
approach to medi-
cal cost recovery was
recently recognized as
a best business prac-
tice by Naval Medical
Inspector General and
the Assistant Secretary
of Defense for Health
Affairs. Through the
Other Health Insurance
(OHI) program, NH Jax
is able to bill non-TRI-
CARE insurance carri-
ers such as employer-
sponsored insurance
from a spouse's employ-
ment for some of the
care provided to its 57,000
patients.
"Submitting other
health insurance infor-
mation never results in
a charge to the patient
- but it results in signifi-
cant dollars for NH Jax,"
said NH Jax Director for
Resource Management
Lt. Cmdr. Michael
Gregonis.
"At no cost to our
patients, Naval Hospital

Regina Wipperman, at Naval Hospital Jacksonville
Third Party Collections, accepts a commercial health
insurance card from Army Reservist PFC Joshua Bird.


Jacksonville collect-
ed $17.5 million in the
past three years," stated
Gregonis. "This revenue
has enabled NH Jax to
fund additional ER physi-
cians, x-ray devices, vir-
tual colonoscopy tools,
dental equipment, influ-
enza isolation facilities
and a pediatric dosing
system all to the ben-
efit of patients across all
of our locations."
From 2007 to 2008,
these revenues doubled,
due in part to an incen-
tive program. To reward
clinical departments that
recoup funds from other
health insurance, a por-
tion of every dollar col-
lected is added directly
to that clinic's operating
budget to support patient
care equipment and ser-
vices.


Also supporting the
program is patient edu-
cation and staff training.
Staff ask patients to pro-
vide their health insur-
ance cards at check-in,
and advise patients that
they can't be charged a
co-pay or deductible by
other health insurance
for services received
at NH Jax. All of these
efforts support compli-
ance with federal law,
which requires patients
to provide other health
insurance information to
military treatment facili-
ties (MTFs) and requires
MTFs to bill insurance
carriers.

information may con-

regional contractors

From NAVFAC Southeast Public
Affairs am appreciative that private industry


Naval Facilities Engineering
Command (NAVFAC) Southeast
Commanding Officer Capt. John
Heinzel spoke at the Society of
American Military Engineers (SAME)
meeting in Savannah, Ga. March 21,
briefing the audience on who NAVFAC
Southeast is, where it conducts business
and how to do business with NAVFAC.
"I enjoy meeting all of the different
members in our area," said Heinzel. "It
gives us all the opportunity to share
experiences, learn about new technol-
ogy, and network."
Heinzel discussed the importance of
safety and energy conservation within
its procurement. NAVFAC Southeast
manages several projects in the area
at Marine Corps bases in Beaufort
and Albany as well as other Navy and
Marine Corps installations through the
Southeastern United States.
NAVFAC manages construction proj-
ects throughout the world. Heinzel
oversees the work throughout the
Southeast and takes every opportunity
to have those face-to-face conversations
with its contractor partners.
"We all learn from each other," said
Heinzel. "We have a fantastic safety and
energy conservation program, but that
doesn't mean that I don't continue to
learn from others. Someone may have
a better way to do something or a more
efficient way to look at things."
Heinzel stated that meetings like this
provide all parties involved to learn
from each other and push forward with
providing the best service for their cus-
tomers, and efficiency matters.
"I continue to be encouraged by how
our contractor/government team has
a healthy interest in delivering quality
and timely products," said Heinzel. "I


embraces our attention to safety and
environmental stewardship."
The Savannah SAME Chapter is a
diverse group of architecture, engineer-
ing construction (A/E/C), facility man-
agement and environmental entities
and individuals from the public and
private sectors who meet regularly to
hear and engage with featured speak-
ers, network, exchange ideas and build
partnerships. The members travel as far
as Atlanta to work with each other.
The Society of American Military
Engineers unites architecture, engi-
neering construction (A/E/C), facility
management and environmental enti-
ties and individuals in the public and
private sectors to prepare for-and
overcome-natural and manmade
disasters, and to improve security at
home and abroad.

BALFOUR BEATTY COMMUNITIES


Placing a maintenance work order for family housing
just got a whole lot easier and more user-friendly for
residents at NAS Jacksonville. Balfour Beatty Communities
is pleased to announce that it has launched a new web-based
work order system on their website at nasjacksonvillehomes.
cor where residents can now report and track the status of
their maintenance work orders from their home as well as
view Community Bulletin Board announcements.


"We were hearing from our residents that they
wanted to see where their work order was in the system,
so we reviewed a number of applications that would be the
best fit for our residents and we believe that this new app
will increase customer satisfaction and they'll know that we
are listening," said Diana Heintz, Community Manager for
Balfour Beatty.


To utilize the new application, residents must first
obtain a registration code from Balfour Beatty's Community
Management office 904-908-0821 and then simply create a
user account. To set up an account, residents should go to
the website nasjacksonvillehomes.com, click the "Submit a
Service Request" link under "Valuable Links" on the website
and enter in their personal information.


In addition to the added features of the new
application, once registered, residents will receive email
notification of completed maintenance work orders as a
follow up to ensure that the service was satisfactory.


"We're always looking for ways to keep resident
satisfaction high and we are hoping that this is just one more
step towards that goal," said Heintz.

Gates: Initial Libya mission complete, successful


4 AI


By Lisa Daniel
American Forces Press Service

U.S. aircraft will remain on
standby as NATO takes over
multilateral operations in
Libya and the coalition con-
siders its future role there,
Defense Secretary Robert Gates
told a Senate committee March
31.
U.S. military aircraft are still
available to NATO until the
organization formally takes
control of military opera-
tions over Libya, Gates told
the Senate Armed Services
Committee. After that, the
U.S. fighter jets will remain on
standby, he said.
Gates and Navy Adm. Mike
Mullen, chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, earlier appeared
before the House Armed
Services Committee.
Coalition forces had to halt
air operations over Libya due
to bad weather for the past
two days, causing rebel forc-
es to retreat from areas they'd
gained since operations began
March 19, Mullen said.
Gates described the U.S.
military mission in Libya
as an emergency prompted
by Libyan leader Moammar
Gadhafi's intent to use his mili-
tary against civilians protest-
ing for his ouster.
Without intervention, he
said, the situation would have
led to thousands of deaths,
hundreds of thousands of refu-
gees and destabilization across
North Africa.
"That part of our mission
is complete and successful,"
Gates said.
More than 20 nations,
including several Arab coun-
tries, are participating in the
NATO coalition some public-
ly, some not in different ways
to enforce U.N. Resolution 1973
that allows for the no-fly zone,
Mullen said.
The coalition, he said, was

on operations in Libya March 31 at the Rayburn House Office
Building in Washington, D.C.


able to move fast to prevent a
disaster because of U.S. rela-
tions with those European and
Middle Eastern nations.
"No one military, no one
nation, can or should take on a
mission like this alone," Mullen
said.
"This is not only a coalition
of the willing it is a coalition
of the able."
The coalition has greatly
diminished Gadhafi's military
air capabilities and many of his
ground assets, the chairman
said.
"My understanding is that
focus will not diminish under
NATO leadership," he said.
The coalition continues to
seize Libyan assets around the
world, while signing on more
partners, Mullen said. Swedish
officials were the latest, having
this week agreed to send eight
aircraft to the effort, he said.
The coalition is considering
whether and how to give more
support to rebel forces, Gates
said.
"A decision about support
to the opposition is clearly the
next step," he said.
"I think all members of the


coalition are thinking about
that at this point."


A major consideration for the
coalition is that not much is
known about the rebels.
'We know a handful of the
leaders," Gates said. "But other
than that, we really don't know
much about what I think is dis-
parate, disaggregated opposi-
tion to Gadhafi."
The issue is more complicat-
ed than simply arming the reb-
els. What the opposition really
needs, Gates said, is organiza-
tion, training, and command
and control something he
said likely requires coalition
forces on the ground in Libya,
which Gates and President
Barack Obama said they are
not willing to do.
It may be that Gadhafi will
be forced from power, possibly
by an internal military coup,
Gates said.
Coalition forces "will contin-


ue to attack [Gadhafi's] ground
forces with no opportunity for
resupply" he said. ,
"His military is going to face
the question of whether they-
are prepared to be destroyed:
by air attacks, or if it's time for
him to go."
The United States and NATO-
"shouldn't exaggerate our abil-
ity to influence that decision,""
Gates said, noting that would-
be better left to the Libyans
and others in the region.
"There are a number of'
possible outcomes here, only
one of which is some kind of
democracy," he said.
"My view is that the future of
Libya the U.S. ought not take;
responsibility for that, frankly.^
There are other countries in
the region that can participate.
in that, particularly with non-"
lethal aid."

NNOA golf tournament


raises money for scholarships


By Ensign Farin Wilson
VP-30 Public Affairs


The Jacksonville Chapter of the
National Naval Officers Association
(NNOA) held its second annual scholar-
ship tournament March 18 at the South
Hampton Golf Club, where 134 golfers,
including Rear Adm. Vic Guillory, com-
mander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern
Command and commander, U.S. 4th
Fleet, his Chief of Staff Capt. Michael
Jacobsen and retired Rear Adm. Gene
Kendall teed up for charity.
After the welcome address, invocation
and national anthem, a "21-ball salute"
kicked off the event with foursomes
competing in a shotgun start.
A variety of officers and local busi-
ness leaders enjoyed the perfect weath-
er, as well as the excuse to break out the
appropriately loud golf pants.
All proceeds from the tournament


went to fund college scholarships for
high school seniors in the city of
Jacksonville.
The NNOA is an inclusive organiza-
tion composed of active duty, reserve
and retired officers and civilians.
They actively support the Sea Services
in the development of a diverse officer
corps through recruitment, retention,
and career development.
The organization focuses on team-
work and accountability by working to
provide professional development, men-
toring and support of cultural aware-
ness. NNOA also maintains a positive
image of the Sea Services within com-
munities and educational institutions.
The local NNOA chapter meets the
fourth Thursday of every month at the
downtown Urban League at 5 p.m.

By AWF2 Olana

Staff Writer

Nineteen years of tra-
dition were honored at
the NAS lax Yacht Club
March 26, as Naval
Reserve Officer Training
Corps (NROTC) sailing
teams from seven univer-
sities participated in the
Jacksonville University
Spring Regatta.
The annual event was
held at Mulberry Cove
Marina on the St. Johns
River to help NROTC stu-
dents improve their mid-
shipman sailing skills.
Midshipman Michael
Ross, team captain of
Georgia Institute of
Technology, explained
the excitement of partici-
pating in the regatta and
the impact of sailing on
future naval officers.
"Sailing competitions
teach teamwork, naviga-
tion, reading wind and
weather," said Ross. "I've
sailed most of my whole
life, but our sailing pro-
gram is open to anyone
in the NROTC program.
If you demonstrate inter-
est in sailing we will get
you out in the water and
teach you how to sail."
Universities compet-
ing were Jacksonville
University, University
of Florida, University of
South Carolina, Tulane
University, Georgia
Institute of Technology,
University of South
Florida and Savannah
State University.
Jacksonville University
hosted the event with
assistance from the Navy
lax Yacht Club.
Midshipman Zachary
Sutherland, officer in
charge of the regatta,
explained the the event:
"This event consists of
eight races where a team
of four from each univer-
sity participates, giving
every university an equal
opportunity to do their
best. The races follow a
fleet format where each
race is individual sail-
ing. Each race is about 30
minutes, and at the end
of each race the team
members switch one
jumping into the boat
and the other jumping
out."
"It is all about having
a good time out here,
we get to see midship-
men around the country,
building lasting camara-
derie," said Sutherland.
After preparing their
sailboats, registration,
and a safety brief, NAS
lax Commanding Officer
Capt. leffrey Maclay
kicked off the event with
opening remarks:
Today is a beautiful
day, a good day for sail-
ing, I want to wish every-
one a good time, and NAS
lax Yacht Club is here to
support your efforts."
Capt. Charles Berdar
said, "NAS Jax has pro-

Water conservation is crucial

By Kirby Green
Eec-;zr.e de'ec:o' 5: /oh's River L ater Mfanagement District

For more than 20 years, the St. Johns River Water
Management District has partnered with local gov-
ernments, civic and business organizations, envi-
ronmental groups and the public to help protect
water resources and ensure that we have ample
supplies of water to meet our economic and envi-
ronmental needs. We believe that Floridians want
to be good stewards of water, and understand that
natural resources are limited and we must use them
wisely if they are to be sustainable.
April is Water Conservation Month, a time for all
of us to reflect upon the importance of this resource
and consider all of the ways that we use water and
the ways that we can reduce our water use. Saving
water doesn't have to be complicated or costly.
Simple actions will help extend our supplies, help
protect our current sources of water and delay the
need to develop more costly alternative sources.
Conservation does not mean doing without water.
It means that we must ensure that our water is used
as efficiently as possible. The District works with
industry, agriculture, power plants and recreational
facilities, such as golf courses and ball fields, to
implement processes to reduce the amount of water
needed for these uses.
Saving water at home is equally important
and the Distritt's website, floridaswater.com, is
a dependable source of information on ways to
conserve. A good place to begin is by following the
watering restrictions, which allow for adequate
amounts of water to keep your landscapes healthy.
While preparing your yard for spring and summer,
remember that planting the right plant in the right
place is the key to using water efficiently. On our
website, you will find an updated and expanded
waterwise plant database that allows you to input
the characteristics of your yard sunny, shady,
dry soil, moist soil, etc. and the database helps
you select the right plants to create an appealing,
low-maintenance landscape that thrives in Florida's
climate.
The District's Florida Water StarsM program, a
voluntary certification program for new and exist-
ing residential and commercial developments,
encourages water efficiency in household appli-
ances, plumbing fixtures, irrigation systems and
landscapes. On our website, you can learn how to
retrofit your home or plan a new home designed to
conserve water. Saving water at home will not only
protect the resource but will reduce the amount of
money you spend on your water bill.
Conserving water is everyone's responsibility,
is good for the economy and good for the environ-
ment. Please take a moment this month to consider
how you use water and see if you can identify a cou-
pld of changes that you can make to do your part to
protect this precious resource.


Jacksonville University takes home first place in
the NROTC Regatta Competition, making the occa-
sion even more meaningful for this team of seniors.

DAMIS HOM10 v E S Nortwa In


All New Homes Are NOT Created Equal!


Are all builders created equal? Of course
when comparing new homes, buyers often look
footage. base price and little else.


not. Yet,
at square


There are many ways to build a new home. but
only two philosophies about what amenities should be
included in the price of that home. Some production
builders prefer to build "stripped down" homes, and then
charge extra to add the features you really want. In other
words, if you want larger baseboards, textured walls and
ceilings, a better grade of cabinetry and hardware, lights
or ceiling fans, it's going to cost you- typically head and
shoulders above the initial price. There's nothing wrong
with this philosophy, if you know this is the deal going in
to the decision making process. But keep this in mind that
for some homes" starting in the $120S," you may have to
add as much as $20,000 or $30,000 worth of extras to
create the home you really want. Also, builders who work
this way often use these upgrades as a profit center. If a
feature is not included in the base price of the home, it is
often going to be marked up significantly.

Lowest Price Does NOT Mean Best Value!
ADAMS HOMES has the philosophy that they would
rather create quality new homes with
more features included, since they 3est
understand these are features that the
vast majority of their buyers are going Valu _
to want anyway. Features such as 51/4" 4
interior base trim, high efficiency
double pane-Low E windows, real interior doors (no
bifolds) with lever handles, better quality cabinetry with
hardware and many other impressive features may seem
to make the home more expensive.
But ADAMS HOMES always includes these features
and more! By the time you add these features to the
stripped-down builder's home, the "less expensive" home
may actually end up costing a lot more.

What's INSIDE the Walls?
Sure, you can see firsthand much of what is included
when you walk through a model home but, what is
most important are many
things that you cannot see. "
There may be items that
affect the quality of
construction that some
builders won't even sell in
their design centers. For
example: many builders will
frame the interior of your
home by spacing the studs r
inches on center. The only -' K .- --
advantage in spacing the -o.
studs this far apart is to save .
cost of building your house.


Can You Customize?
S~~ Most builders offer a number
"-: of basic floorplans; however, you
: must try to fit your lifestyle into
S- their plan. ADAMS HOMES
,, I offers many unique floorplans
S iand the ability to customize.
You can have the layout you
have always wanted. Your home
I .* I- will be unique to your tastes and
styles. From adjusting interior
walls to wheelchair accessible
areas ADAMS HOMES' ability to change your home to suit
your needs will make this the last home you will ever need
to buy. Affordable: Quality Construction, Energy Efficiency,
and Design Flexibility!

TRULY Greener
More Energy Efficient?
Is your home truly more
-Fasda efficient or does it simply meet the
T minimum standards by adhering to
current building codes? ADAMS
HOMES takes energy efficiency to
the next level by building all of their
homes with ENERGY STAR Appliances, A/C Air Handlers
designed to be inside the home so they run more efficiently,
Double Pane Low-E Insulated Windows, A/C Duct Mastic
on Duct Work Connections, R-30 Insulation, Off-Ridge Roof

Seniors take up clubs by invitation

From NAS lax MWR

The 2011 Senior Military Invitational was held March 21-22 at NAS Jacksonville
Golf Club after having to postpone the event twice for extremely cold weather in
January and February. Sunny skies and warm Florida breezes greeted 62 players
ages 50 to 96.
Luis Febus overcame a rocky start of 80 on day one to defend his title for a fifth
time with a fine final round of 75. He finished with a 155 and a 2-stroke lead over
newcomer Jerry Pinkham, who finished at 157.
In the Super Senior Division, Dave Walsh put together two fine rounds of 76 and
82 to win by eight strokes over the rest of the field.
The oldest member of the field, 95-year-old Bob Watkins, continued to show the
youngsters how it's done by besting his age on round one with a 94 and finishing
with a 99. In the ladies division, Nise Winkler struggled slightly on day one, but
righted the ship on day two to win by 10 with a very respectable 170.
