Governor, staff meet with military commanders


From Staff

Florida Gov. Rick Scott and
Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll held
their quarterly base com-
manders meeting at NAS
Jacksonville Nov. 18 in order
to ensure that state agencies
and military base commanders
work together to forge contin-
ued growth and mission sus-
tainment.
Scott frequently says that he
wants Florida to be the most
"military friendly" state in the
nation. To achieve this, he and
Carroll attend the quarterly
meetings to receive updates on
previous issues, as well as to
discuss any new areas of con-
cern or opportunity.
Twenty installation com-
manders of all services,
from Key West to the Florida
Panhandle, gathered for
the meeting at the NAS
Jacksonville Officers' Club.
NAS Jacksonville Com-
manding Officer Capt. Jeffrey
Maclay hosted the briefing
in conjunction with Florida

National Guard Maj. Gen.
Emmett Titshaw Jr.
"The governor and lieuten-


ant governor understand the
economic impact that the mili-
tary provides to the State of


Florida and they work dili-
gently to keep informed on
developments for all of the mil-


itary services in the state," said
Maclay. "The Florida Defense
Task Force was established
as a result of these quarterly
meetings, to make recom-
mendations to the governor to
strengthen Florida's defense
industries."
He said the commanders
meetings generally focus on
four areas: encroachment/land
use; transportation/infrastruc-
ture; energy; and quality of
life/family support.
Specific issues that have
been addressed at the com-
manders meeting include: pay-
day lending, spouse employ-
ment, magnet school enroll-
ment, compatible land-use
near military installations and
training ranges.
The following state agen-
cies normally attend the
meeting: Executive Office
of Governor; Lieutenant
Governor; Florida Department
of Environmental Protection;

Servicemember financial advocate


Petraeus visits area commands


From staff

Holly Petraeus, director of the Office
of Servicemember Affairs at the fed-
eral Consumer Financial Protection
Bureau (CFPB), and wife of CIA director
and retired Army Gen. David Petraeus,
gathered input in a series of round-
table discussions Nov. 14-17 at Navy
Region Southeast, NSB Kings Bay, NS
Mayport and NAS Jacksonville. She also
attended the Association for Financial
Counseling, Planning and Education
Annual Conference in downtown
Jacksonville.
During her visit to NAS Jacksonville,
she heard first hand about the financial
challenges that Sailors and families face
during a lunch meeting at the Flight
Line Caf6, hosted by NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt. Jeffrey
Maclay, and attended by commanding
officers of tenant commands.
At base headquarters, Petraeus took
part in a round-table discussion with
key military and civilian leaders includ-


ing Maclay, Florida Attorney General
Pam Bondi, Florida Chief Financial
Officer Jeff Atwater and NAS Jax Fleet
and Family Support Center Director
Myrna Wilson.
She said that the focus of her visit
was to ensure that military members
and their families receive the educa-
tion they need to make sound financial
decisions, ensure that complaints and
questions from military families are
monitored and responded to, and that
federal and state agencies coordinate
their activities to improve consumer
protection measures.
According to Petraeus, housing is the
number one concern.
"The biggest issue we've found is the
depressed state of the housing market.
When a servicemember gets orders to
move, there is no good answer on what
they will do with their house," she said.
"There is the added problem that they
can't hunker down in the house and
wait it out. When they get orders,

Individual Augmentees

honored at NAS Jacksonville

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS lax Deputy PAO

NAS Jacksonville and the Northeast Florida Navy
League Council hosted their eighth semi-annual
Individual Augmentee (IA) Appreciation luncheon
Nov. 17 at the NAS Jax Officers' Club. One hundred
and fifteen IAs from the base and tenant commands
and several spouses were recognized at the event.
The luncheon kicked off with the singing of the
national anthem by Kela Stelig and the invocation by
NAS Jax Command Chaplain (Lt. Cmdr.) Shannon
Skidmore. NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jeffrey
Maclay gave the opening remarks.
"We are here today to honor your commitment and
service. The Navy asks you to go and support a sister
service into an area to do the nation's bidding unac-
companied by a squadron or command. You complete
your deployments with dignity and come back home
and then go right back to work and on with your lives.
I cannot say'thank-you' enough for what you do," said
Maclay.
Commander, Navy Region Southeast Rear Adm.
Jack Scorby Jr. was the guest speaker for the event.
"You are the heroes who stepped up to the plate when
the Navy needed you to serve. IA deployments are
undoubtedly some of the most difficult, but you and
your families willingly made that sacrifice. You are
doing more than a job, you are protecting our free-
doms and we are grateful for that," he told the IAs in
the audience.
"Since 9/11, 95,000 Sailors have served as IAs and at
any given time we have more than 200 IAs deployed

operations in Columbia and Honduras. Thank you for
devoting up to a year of your life for this critical duty,"
Scorby continued.
Scorby also thanked the spouses in attendance.

can do their jobs," he said.

2011 and can honestly say that it's been the most chal-
lenging deployment of my nine years in the Navy. The
orders were supposed to be for a travel clerk position
with the Warrior Transition Program in Camp Arifjan,
Kuwait. When I arrived, they were short of gunner's
mates so I ended up inspecting, inventorying and
shipping back over 900 rifles and handguns each week
to the states," he said.

In 1959, this HSS-1 Sea Horse anti-submarine warfare helicopter, assigned to
HS-9, was carrying a Mark 43 torpedo in its firing sling. The HS-9 "Sea Griffins"
were established at NAS Quonset Point, R.I., in 1956. The squadron served in the
Atlantic and Mediterranean until it was disestablished in 1968. The Sea Griffins
were re-established at NAS Jacksonville in 1976 with a force of eight SH-3H Sea
King helicopters.

Dustin's change of command brings change


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


As a military dependent for
more than 35 years, I have been
to many changes of command,
most of them for my dad.
Earlier this month, I attended
one for my husband, Dustin.
A change of command is the
Navy's answer to that awkward
moment when one author-
ity is leaving and a new one is
stepping in. It's the passing of
a baton, an outward, formal
marker for something that can't
really be physically contained
and transferred. (Parents and
babysitters would do well to
have their own mini change
of command ceremony at the
beginning of each babysitting
session.)
Dustin's change of command
came after three years as com-
mander of Navy Operational
Support Center (NOSC) Bangor,
Maine, where he first was in
charge of a portion of Maine's
naval reserves, and then, after
NAS Brunswick closed, respon-
sible for Maine's entire popula-
tion of Navy reservists. Dustin's
command also was responsible
for all Navy funeral honors in
the state of Maine.
From the moment he took
command, Dustin was keenly
aware of his duty to the com-
munity, the reservists-many
of them being sent individually


for deployments all over the
world-and the funerals in the
region.
That's the kind of man he is.
Three years later, he is
wiser-and perhaps grayer at
the temples-but more impor-
tantly, he is in tune with the
needs and sacrifices of reserv-
ists and their families.
As I helped the boys with
their ties and dress shirts the
morning of the ceremony, I told
them how proud I was of their
dad. This was hard for them to
hear; the change of command,
after all, marked the official
end to Dustin's job here in
Maine and the beginning of his
yearlong deployment overseas.
When I was a kid, I remember
feeling like my boys-proud of
my dad, excited for the ceremo-
ny, but ultimately, anxious and
sad about one more change in
our lives.
While I've anticipated these
changes for the last six months,
Dustin didn't have time to. He
was more concerned with mak-
ing sure the transfer of author-
ity was as seamless as possible
for his Sailors and staff.
That's the kind of leader he is.
The ceremony opened with
patriotic songs played by the
195th Maine Army band


and the Parade of Colors by
University of Maine's Navy
ROTC unit. Ford's fifth grade
teacher, Joe Bennett, sang the
national anthem. After the
invocation, our attention was
directed toward the stage.
I began thinking about the
day Dustin told me the Navy
was transferring him from
Pensacola, Fla., where he was
a flight instructor, to Bangor,
Maine.
"What's in Bangor, Maine, for
a Navy pilot," I asked.
Incidentally, my then new
readers in Bangor wanted to
know the same thing. Changes
of command, flyovers, men in
Navy uniforms stopping at the
grocery store to buy a gallon of
milk these things are com-
monplace where I grew up in
Virginia Beach, Va.
Today in New England, espe-
cially after the closing of NAS
Brunswick, there is a Navy
vacuum in the region. Besides
his new mission as command-
ing officer and all that that
entailed, Dustin made a Navy
presence in our new hometown
one of his priorities.
That's the kind of citizen he
is.
Dustin accomplished this in
part by creating a new partner-


ship between Bangor Public
Schools and NOSC Bangor. He
and his staff went into schools,
as part of Campaign Drug Free,
and talked to students about
the positive goals in their lives.
They also got involved with
Habitat for Humanity, local
parades and ceremonies, and,
of course, they continued, with
their solemn duty to regional
funerals with professionalism
and honor.
Yet, after the change of com-
mand, Dustin didn't have time
to think about what I knew
was important work he and the
NOSC had done in our area.
As the sideboys saluted Dustin
out of the ceremony, I knew his
mind was already on the new
tasks ahead: getting our family
ready for the deployment and
preparing himself for his new
mission.
That's the kind of officer he
is.
A week later, I asked Dustin
if it was beginning to seem
real that he would soon leave
me and the kids. I wondered if
leaving our youngest, Lindell,
would be hardest of all. A year
is a long time. Especially for a
toddler. When Dustin comes
back, Lindell will have out-
grown his footed pajamas. He
won't call Rite-Aid "Fridays."
He won't mispronounce Rs like
Ls ("Pleston"). He will already
know the whole alphabet. He


might even be reading.
Selfishly, I couldn't imagine
missing those things.
But Dustin said, "My absence
will impact Lindell most of
all. That's what worries me.
He won't understand. In three
weeks he'll wonder when I'm
coming back. A year will seem
like forever. And it will be hard
for him."
Always thinking of others
and their feelings before him-
self.
That's the kind of father
Dustin is.
Through the years in this col-
umn, I probably haven't given
you an adequate description
of Dustin. I'm usually not at a
lost for words, especially when
written. Yet, when it comes to
explaining Dustin, I find it dif-
ficult to capture his essence.
"You just have to know him,"
is what I say.
So when Rear Adm. Robin
Braun, who gave the opening
remarks at the change of com-
mand, described him as hav-
ing a "winsome" personality,
my eyes brightened. That's the
word I've been searching for all
these years.
Winsome. Affable.
Charming. Hardworking.
Careful. Conscientious.
Dedicated. Thoughtful. Warm.
Funny.
That's the kind of person
Dustin is.


Transition Benefits: TAP mandatory for ERB Sailors


By MC1 (SW/AW) Monique Hilley
Commander, Navy Installations
Command Public Affairs

As the results of the Enlisted Retention
Board (ERB) Phase I are revealed this
week, Sailors separating due to the ERB
will begin their transition out of the
Navy.
Due to these Sailors' unplanned sepa-
ration prior to their end of active obligat-
ed service (EAOS), the U.S. Department
of Labor's (DOL) Transition Assistance
Program workshop, commonly known
as TAP, will be mandatory for all ERB
Sailors.
"Navy leadership is ensuring that
Sailors separating from the Navy,
because of the ERB, have all the tools


necessary for a successful transition to
civilian life," said Vice Adm. M.C.Vitale,
commander, Navy Installations
Command.
"TAP is a key component of this
effort." TAP, offered at Commander,
Navy Installations Command (CNIC)
Fleet and Family Support Centers
(FFSCs) worldwide, provides information
on job employment workshops, tran-
sition preparation and Department of
Veteran Affairs (VA) benefits.
"Sailors transitioning out of the Navy
under ERB can benefit greatly from
attending a DOL TAP Employment
Workshop, as well as the many work-
shops offered at CNIC FFSC's world-
wide," said Rise Ruhl, CNIC HQ


Transition Assistance Program manager.
"At these workshops they will be given an
invaluable tool set through knowledge
gained in resume writing, interviewing
skills, financial management, relocation
information and education options."
All Sailors not selected for retention by
the ERB should reference NAVADMIN
332/11, which highlights existing and
new benefits available to all Sailors as
part of the Navy's comprehensive transi-
tion support strategy.
In NAVADMIN 332/11, every leader
in the chain of command is required
to be actively involved in the transition
process, providing guidance, time, and
opportunity for their Sailors to utilize
transition assistance.

Regional Sailor of the Year 2011 announced


By MC2(SW) Greg Johnson
Region Southeast Public Affairs


NC1(SW/AW) Jonathan Dingier from NS Mayport
was named Navy Region Southeast (NRSE) Regional
Sailor of the Year for 2011 during a ceremony on board
NAS Jacksonville Nov. 17.
The ceremony was the culmination of a week-long
event that combined official military activities with
recreation. While a board of command master chiefs
from throughout the region were making their selec-
tions, Sailors from each of the region's 15 installations
participated a number of activities, including a tour
of NSB Kings Bay, group physical training, a shopping
trip to St. Augustine, Fla., and a tour of EverBank Field,
home of the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars.
"All of our candidates for Sailor of the Year were
outstanding Sailors and role models," said NRSE
CMDCM(AW/SW) Mack Ellis. "In the end, it was NCl's
demeanor, maturity and overall sustained perfor-
mance that separated him from the others."
According to Dingier, it was an honor to receive such
a prestigious award.
"I'm honored, humbled and grateful," he said. "All
of the other Sailors out here are exemplary leaders and
every one of them also deserves to be in this spot."
The week began with an informal reception, where
Ellis announced the top-five selectees. In addition
to Dingier, the top five also included MA1(SW) Jacob
Moore of Naval Weapons Station Charleston, S.C.;
MA1 Danielle Metz of Construction Battalion Center
Gulfport, Miss.; MA1(SW) Brian Schaaf of Naval Air
Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, Texas; and
ABH (Handling) 1(AW/SW) Travis Matney of Naval Air
Station Meridian, Miss.
All the candidates spent the week being men-
tored by command master chiefs from installations

throughout the region, preparing for the final board.
"Going in for the board seems pretty intimidating
until you hit the door," Dingler said. "Once the board
starts, you realize how important it is and what an
honor it is that the senior leadership is recognizing
you."
While only five selectees participated in the final
board, all of the participants experienced a week they
will always remember, said CS1(SW/SCWS) Victor
Rojas, the Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Sailor of the
Year for 2011.
"It's been a great experience to come here and meet
the rest of these first classes and command master
chiefs. I think we'll all be able to take a little bit more
knowledge back home and use it to help our junior
Sailors get to where we are today," he said.
According to Ellis, even though there can be only
one winner, all 15 Sailors should be proud of their
accomplishments.
"Each one of these Sailors faced tough competi-
tion at their installations just to get here. For them
to be selected to represent the entire installation is a
remarkable feat in itself, and we need to be apprecia-
tive of their accomplishments," Ellis said.

HS-11


WORKING


SAFELY


THROUGH IDRC
By Clark Pierce '
Editor I'm


HS-11 Commanding Officer Cmdr. Edguardo Moreno credits AM1 Jonathan
Kraut and the squadron's other maintainers with the minimal down time of their
20-year-old Seahawk helicopters.


AN Christopher Adams and AM2 Jessica Neff pull the vibe absorbers from an
SH-60F Seahawk during a scheduled maintenance that includes checking bolts
and bearings, as well as for stress cracks.


The "Dragonslayers" of HS-11 are well
into their compressed (7 months) Inter-
Deployment Readiness Cycle (IDRC) as
they become trained and certified to
operate with Carrier Air Wing (CVW)
1, which is slated to deploy aboard the
aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN
65), as it departs this spring for its final
cruise before retirement in late 2012.
Regarding the squadron's high oper-
ational tempo, HS-11 Commanding
Officer Cmdr. Edgardo Moreno said
that the compressed IDRC can be a little
stressful -but that pilots, aircrew, main-
tainers and support personnel are up to

"After completing our requisite post-
deployment inspections, we most
recently took part in exercises with
CVW-1 at the Navy's tactical air warfare
training center located at NAS Fallon,
Nevada," said Moreno. "We flew five
Seahawks to Nevada in 18 hours -with-
out the first breakdown -and that says a
lot about our maintenance team."
Moreno said he was pleased with the
Dragonslayers' performance at Fallon.
"It can be a dangerous training envi-

so we also have to take leave periods

their interaction with spouses via our

with Erin Laird, our family readiness

'Red Lancers'

announce Sailor

of the Year

By MC1 Alfredo Rosado
VP 10 Public Affairs

AWO1 Chad Michael Boyd was
recently selected as VP-10 Sailor of the
Year for 2011. The Red Lancers are
currently forward deployed support-
ing the U.S. Navy 5th Fleet.
A native of Metairie, La., Boyd has
completed 10 years in the Navy and
served with VP-10 since April 2009. He
currently serves as the 300 Division
Leading Petty Officer, Command
Security Access Manager, primary
NATOPS Evaluator, Aircrew Readiness
Program Instructor, and Wing
Qualification Instructor.
"I feel that this is one of the greatest
honors of my career. I never thought
that I would have accomplished this,"
said Boyd. "I just did my job to the
best of my abilities and good things
happened. I am only as strong as the
sailors that I lead," said Boyd.
AWOC Michael Silvis, training
department and command services
leading chief petty officer, said, "This

is a great accomplishment for Petty
Officer Boyd. It's always a good thing
to see a person's hard work and dedi-
cation to their shipmates pay off for
them."
During his off-duty time, Boyd vol-
unteers at the Habitat for Humanity
and City Rescue Mission.
VP-10 is responsible for executing
combat operations ISO U.S., NATO,
and Coalition forces in the 5th Fleet
Area of Responsibility, conducting
ASW, ASUW, maritime patrol and
reconnaissance operations and search
and rescue.

A Hero Among Heroes


From VP-16 Public Affairs
HM1 Manuel Lozada of the VP-16
"War Eagles" was recently honored
by Bishop John J. Snyder High School
for his service as a corpsman with the
Navy's Forward Surgical Teams.
The athletic department at Bishop
John I. Snyder High School invited
Lozada to be an honorary team captain
for their football season opener.
He was escorted to the 50-yard line
at the start of the game to call the coin
toss, kicking off the Cardinals win
against Eagle's View Academy. The
school also invited his wife, Jenny and
daughter, Mya to enjoy the game.
In February 2010, Lozada was select-
ed to fill one of the Navy's Individual
Augmentee billets in Afghanistan.
Lozada served as part of a Navy
Forward Surgical Team (FST) which
was first deployed to supplement the
Army's 62nd Medical Brigade from Fort
Lewis Washington, and later support-
ed the 10th Mountain Division out of
Fort Drum, NY. His team served at the
Qualat Forward Operating Base.
Located in the dangerous southern
province of Zabul, the base and sur-


rounding international security assis-
tance forces saw frequent action with
insurgent forces which led to high casu-
alties.
The team included four Navy sur-
geons, two anesthesiologists, 12 nurses
and 12 corpsmen. Lozada and his team
treated combat trauma victims daily,
lifted by helicopter directly out of com-
bat action into their operating base for
medical attention.
He saw firsthand the devastation
caused by automatic weapons fire and
improvised explosive devices. Lozada
assisted in many of the surgical proce-
dures performed at the mobile hospital
as well as performing triage on patients
as they arrived.
He was also part of the team that
came to the aid of a UH-60 Blackhawk
helicopter crash Sept. 22, 2010, the
deadliest aviation incident up to that
point in the Afghan War.
Nine U.S. service members died in
the crash, including a fellow Navy Seal
corpsman for whom the hospital was
later named.
Lozada will soon deploy with VP-16 to
the Pacific area of responsibility.


MCPON message: No second chance for drug abuse


Special from MCPON(SS/SW)
Rick West
Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy

MCPON(SS/SW) Rick West, released
the following message on drug abuse,
which focuses on "Spice," herbal prod-
ucts and other designer drugs, to the
fleet:
"Shipmates,
There has been an alarming rise in
the number of Sailors who are choosing
to use 'Spice,' herbal products and other
so-called designer drugs; and this must
come to an immediate stop.
More than 150 Sailors are currently
being processed for 'Spice' use, posses-
sion or distribution, and this is UNSAT.
Overall, the Navy has separated 1,374
Sailors in FY09; 1,308 Sailors in FY10;
and 302 Sailors during the first quarter
of FY11, for drug abuse. These unex-
pected losses negatively affect our com-
mands' manning levels, which in turn
affects the commands' operational and
warfighter readiness. The Navy's poli-


cy on drug abuse is simple and clear -
zero tolerance, and there are no second
chances.
NAVADMIN 108/10 states the follow-
ing on drug abuse:
'Drug abuse includes the wrongful
use, possession, manufacture, or dis-
tribution of a controlled substance.
Drug abuse also includes the unlawful
use of controlled substance analogues
(designer drugs), natural substances
(e.g., fungi, excretions), chemicals (e.g.,
chemicals wrongfully used as inhal-
ants), propellants and/or prescribed
or over-the-counter drugs or pharma-
ceutical compounds with the intent to
induce intoxication, excitement, or stu-
pefaction of the central nervous system,
and will subject the violator to punitive
action under the UCMJ and/or adverse
administrative action.'
Some examples of substances men-
tioned above where the wrongful use
constitutes drug abuse includes, but is

Welcome home, MSRON 10

By Clark Pierce
Editor


More than 275 active
duty and Reserve Sailors
of Maritime Expeditionary
Security Squadron (MSRON)
10 returned to NAS Jacksonville
after nightfall Nov. 15 follow-
ing a seven-month deployment
to United Arab Emirates (UAE)
in the U.S. Central Command
area of responsibility.
Hundreds of spouses, children,
family members and friends
gathered at NAS Jax Hangar 117
to celebrate their return home.
MSRON 10 CMDCM James
Pohlen said, "It's my pleasure
to see so many families and
friends here tonight even
though it's a bit late for some
of the children. The excitement
and anticipation of homecom-
ing makes this a very special
event for everyone involved."
He added, "While we don't
officially demobilize until
early December, there will
be generous liberty over
the Thanksgiving holiday.
Demobilization includes vari-
ous debriefs and inspections,
along with medical evalua-
tions, to make sure our people
are fit to return to duty or their
civilian jobs."
The squadron will not bring
any of its patrol boats back
from the UAE. Instead, a lot of
their gear was transferred to
their relief squadron, MSRON
8, out of Newport, R.I.
"For me, the highlight of our
deployment was watching our
Sailors from the most junior
to the most experienced exe-
cute their mission safely and
effectively," said Pohlen.
Capt. Robert Perry, dep-
uty commander, Maritime
Expeditionary Security Group
(MESG) 2 attended the home-
coming from the group head-
quarters in Portsmouth, Va.
"MSRON 10's performance was

Arab Emirates, where they provided both port and seaward security in the Arabian Gulf and Gulf of Oman.

overall outstanding. They set
one of the highest operational
tempos of any squadron that's
ever deployed to that part of
the world and that means


they had very little down time.
There were no mishaps regard-
ing their patrol boats or the
high-value assets they were
guarding," said Perry.


Perry also conveyed a
message from MESG 2
Commander, Commodore Paul
McElroy:
"Subject: Bravo Zulu. Upon
your return to homeport [NAS
Jax], I want to extend my per-
sonal congratulations to
MSRON 10 for completion of a
highly dynamic mobilization,
certification and deployment
to the 5th Fleet AOR. You dem-
onstrated great professionalism
and perseverance in support-
ing the forward-deployed oper-
ational commander's objec-
tives maintaining regional
maritime security, ensuring
regional access and strength-
ening regional partner capa-
bilities. Your warrior ethos has
set the standard for all MESF
[Maritime Expeditionary
Security Force] and NECC
[Navy Expeditionary Combat
Command] commands to emu-
late."

perform well and telephones with large bills were not
an option. Snail mail worked but was, indeed, very
slow. In the end, Facebook worked about the best,"
said Ballard.
Piper agreed, "We had no major issues -just some
communications concerns, especially with our large
number of new families who hadn't previously expe-
rienced deployment. MSRON 10 is a Reserve squadron
composed of drill units from Jacksonville, Miami,
Orlando, Tampa, Gulfport and Charleston -so it was
not as easy to organize family events as it is for an
active duty squadron," said Piper.
MSRON 10 is a unit of MESG 2, headquartered in
Portsmouth, Va. Its four Reserve and three active
duty squadrons comprise one of the Navy's premier
anti-terrorism/force protection units and is part of
the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command. The role
of expeditionary security is to provide force protec-
tion and security for designated assets such as ships,
aircraft or facilities in places where there is no perma-
nent Navy infrastructure or where the security capa-
bilities are insufficient or unknown.

their sacrifice


From Page 1


"I finally took over as the travel leading petty officer,
responsible for managing and coordinating logis-
tics and flight reservations for redeploying Sailors. I
was also in charge of the weekly rotator flight. The
days were long, the work was stressful but at the end,


nothing made me any
happier than sending
the Sailors and Soldiers
home alive to reunite
with loved ones," contin-
ued Emenogu.
"While serving on my
IA tour, I developed a far
deeper appreciation for
my fellow Sailors and
service members who
left all behind to do their
duty. These folks stood
by me when times were
tough. One of my saddest
times came when I had
to type a Red Cross mes-
sage while looking into
the eyes of a Sailor going
home to bury his broth-
er," Emenogu recalled.
He continued, "My

the other branches of the service inspired great pride
in me even though the Soldiers called me 'Sergeant.' I
realized that the capability of a United States Sailor is
only limited by their imagination. We are truly special
in all aspects and are equipped with the skills to make
things happen. We should all be filled with a sense of
pride knowing that we directly contributed to making
this world a safer place."
After lunch, each IA was presented with a special
plaque and coin from the Northeast Florida Navy
League Council and thank-you letters from U.S.
Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio, and U.S.
Congressman Ander Crenshaw. Each spouse was also
presented with a letter of appreciation and a rose.
"This is a very classy event and I'm very honored
to be here today. It's great that the base and Navy
League are recognizing those of us who served as
IAs with units overseas," said RP3 Chester Harden of
Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing Eleven
who was deployed as an IA to Baghdad, Iraq for 12
months.

12 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, November 24, 2011


We've come a long way, baby


By Capt. Joseph McQuade
Naval Hospital Jacksonville Director
of Public Health and family medicine physician

In my practice at the hospital, I often
am amazed at how much things change
in providing medical care over only a
few years. For example, colonoscopies
to screen for colon cancer were relative-
ly rare just 10 years ago. Now nearly 80
percent of our patients over age 50 get
this screening at Naval Hospital (NH)
Jacksonville.
How about preventing lung cancer?
Lung cancer, early heart disease and
strokes kill more patients than anything
else, year to year. The Great American
Smokeout took place last week and we
took a few minutes to think about our
efforts to help our patients quit.
Q: Have we gotten anywhere with
helping patients quit smoking?
In 2005, providers at NH Jacksonville
referred 66 patients from our primary
care clinics to the Wellness Center to
get help quitting smoking. In 2011, our
providers are on track to send nearly
5,800 patients to our Wellness Centers
for help to quit this tough habit.
Q: Why has quitting smoking
become so popular?
On Jan. 1, 2010 NH Jacksonville
banned smoking from its campus. No
more smoking gazebos for patients


Ask Dr. Joe

Capt. Joseph McQuade, director of
public health at Naval Hospital Jax
explains that tobacco remains the lead-
ing preventable cause of death and dis-
ease in the U.S. to medical staff Nov.
17. Of these deaths, about 40 percent
are from cancer, 35 percent from heart
disease and stroke and 25 percent from
lung disease. Yet, smokers at any age
can significantly reduce the risk of sick-
ness and death by quitting. To get help,
call the Naval Hospital Jax Wellness
Center at 542-5292.
and staff to smoke in through the day.
When we did this, we were actually the
last hospital in Duval County to have a
smoke-free campus. Smoking in pub-


Naval Hospital Jacksonville's Wellness
Center sponsors a display at the NAS
Jax Navy Exchange Nov. 17 to promote
the Great American Smokeout. The dis-
play illustrated the severe consequenc-
es of tobacco cigarettes, chew and

found in cigarette smoke including cya-
nide, arsenic, formaldehyde and car-
bon monoxide.
lic spaces has increasingly become
de-normalized. Mayor Bloomberg
has declared a smoke-free City of New
York. Gator fans may not smoke on the
University of Florida campus, nor can
we smoke legally at any of Jacksonville's


parks and beaches.
The Navy's submarine force is smoke-
free now, after researchers showed that
non-smoking sub sailors had levels
of nicotine by-products in their urine
nearly equal to smokers. The dangers of
secondhand smoking have been care-
fully documented in recent years and
this has been a driving force in efforts to
keep smoking out of public spaces.
Medications to help patients quit
have improved in the past several years,
and these newer medications counter-
act the dependence on nicotine.
We've de-normalized the act of smok-
ing and we've tried to make it as easy as
possible to get medications and behav-
ioral therapy to help quitters succeed.
We hold up the mantra that we should
make it as easy to find effective medical
care (for quitting) as it is to buy a pack of
cigarettes.
So if you still smoke, stop in at our
Wellness Center or ask your provider
to help get you started on medication
and behavioral therapy to help you quit.
Call Wellness at 542-5292 or stop by.
We're located next to NAS Jax fitness
center.
The average lifetime smoker may lose
up to 15 years of life due to smoking.
Most people in 2011 agree that 15 years
is too much life to waste. We have come
a long way, baby.


MCPON: Using spice and other products will end a Sailor's career


From Page 6

not limited to the following:
Products that contain synthetic can-
nabinoid compounds, such as "Spice,"
genie, blaze, dream, ex-ses, spark,
fusion, dark knight, yukatan fire, and
K2.
Natural substances such as salvia
divinorum and mushrooms.
Common items abused by inhaling
or huffing, such as Dust Off, glue, paint
thinner and gasoline.
Over-the-counter products such as
Robitussin and Coricidin HBP.


Prescription medications such as
Oxycodone, Vicodin, Adderall, and
Valium.
If you didn't know, 'Spice' is a mixture
of natural herbs and synthetic canna-
binoids, that when smoked, produce
a marijuana-like 'high' that decreases
motor skills, impairs coordination and
concentration, and effects short-term
memory and senses.
The effects of these substance is
unpredictable when combined with
alcohol, and since the chemical blends
are continuously manipulated and the
strength of the synthetic chemical used


is unknown, there is no way to know
what you are getting in the drugs nor
what the long-term health risks are if
used.
Some of the side effects from these
drugs included uncontrolled vomit-
ing, excessive sweating, flushed skin,
increased heart rate and high blood
pressure, and loss of consciousness.
If this sounds like a good time to you,
then go ahead and hand over your rank
and paycheck, and possibly your life.
Bottom line: The use and even just
the possession of 'Spice,' herbal prod-
ucts, designer drugs, chemicals used


for huffing, salvia divinorum, or prod-
ucts containing synthetic cannabinoid
compounds are prohibited. Leadership,
along with Naval Criminal Investigative
Service, is aggressively working to catch
personnel who are possessing, using,
or distributing drugs; and when you get
caught, your career willbe over.
Drug abuse goes against our Navy's
core values and ethos, and it is a threat
to lives, unit and mission readiness and
morale. It is every Sailor's responsibility
to deter drug abuse. If you do the crime,
you will do the time. Remember zero
tolerance and no second chances."

NAS Jax fire chief retires after 30
By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO


First Coast Navy Fire and Emergency Services Fire
Chief Don Martin will retire from civil service Dec. 31
after 30 years with the fire department.
Martin, a native of Panama City, Fla., attended
Florida State College, St. Augustine Tech and Alabama
Fire College. He then served in the U.S. Navy for
six years, achieving the rank of Radioman 2nd class
petty officer. After completing his enlistment, Martin
worked for Florida Marine Patrol before joining the NS
Mayport Fire Department in 1981 where he worked as
a dispatcher.
While working for the department, Martin accepted
a firefighter position in the Upward Mobility Program.
After enrolling in several classes, he quickly advanced
in rank and his path was set.
In 2008, Martin became fire chief of the newly
consolidated NAS Jacksonville and NS Mayport Fire
Departments.
"This was definitely one of my biggest challenges.
We consolidated our budgets and personnel system.
It went from managing and supervising 50 personnel
to 130," he said. "But it's been very rewarding and we
have one heck of a department with an excellent team.
These are the best fire departments in the Southeast
Region."
During his tenure as fire chief, Martin has overseen
numerous achievements by the fire station personnel
including: supporting the Self Help Program, saving
the government hundreds of thousands of dollars by
procuring supplies and using firefighter expertise for
projects; establishing a labor management team to
improve labor relations; help establishing a tactical
execution team to provide policies and procedures for
regional fire and emergency services; assisting the
Regional Dispatch Center on the implementation of
a regional communication program; creating mutual
aid agreements with community agencies; upgrading
the NAS Jax Emergency Management System from
basic life support to advanced life support; improving
the firefighter's training program by offering courses
and professional development; reducing budget over-
time issues; supporting the Mobile Aircraft Trainer
program to support local agencies and providing
technical assistance to the Guantanamo Bay Fire
Department by repairing self contained breathing
apparatus.
"Things have really changed within the department
since I first started we have new technologies, equip-
ment and a new hiring and advancement process. We
have a lot of young recruits and sometimes they might
not be moving up the ranks as fast as they would like
to, but this is a great career and a very rewarding job,"
said Martin.
"My motto has always been safety first and I believe
in treating others as you would like to be treated. This
job is all about teamwork. I think the best part of this

Chief Don Martin said he will dearly miss his fire-

job has been getting to know new family members
within the fire department because in this job, you
spend a lot of time away from home," he said. "I am
definitely going to miss everyone and the entire NAS
Jacksonville and NAVAL STATION MAYPORT teams
all that we accomplished."
Martin would also like to thank all those who sup-
ported him and his department. "I specifically want
to thank Rear Adm. Scorby who chose me for this
position and the Commanding Officers and Executive
Officers of NAS Jax and NS Mayport for allowing me to
manage these fire stations," he stated.
"I'd also like to thank my wife, Blandie for every-
thing she has done to support my career. I've spent a
lot of time away from home and missed many of my
kid's events but she has always done a tremendous job
of keeping the household running when I was away. I
thank her for allowing me to be who I am."
In the future, Martin plans to take a vacation and

Safety stand down promotes awareness


By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS lax Deputy PAO


NAS Jax conducted a safe-
ty stand down at the VP-30
auditorium Nov. 16 to remind
Sailors and civilian employees
to make smart decisions to stay
safe over the Thanksgiving hol-
iday. Coordinated by the base
safety office, the event promot-
ed risk management and safe
driving measures.
"There have been three
Sailors killed in the Jackson-
ville area over the past year
in mishaps. Maybe the cir-
cumstances would have been
different if a colleague had
intervened or the person had
made other decisions. Today,
we are going to arm you with
information so you and your
shipmates can make good
decisions. You are all a valu-
able part of the NAS Jax team
and we need you," said NAS
Jax Commanding Officer Capt.
Jeffrey Maclay.
"The most dangerous
day to drive is the day after
Thanksgiving when many of
you will be on the road. So
with the holidays coming up,
we want to ensure you return
safely," he added.
Maclay also talked
about Club 2000 an NAS
Jacksonville program that
allows military members and
civilian employees to call for a
free ride home if they've been
drinking. "This program is to
make sure you get home safe
if you do go out and have a

motor vehicle during a base safety stand down on Nov. 16.


couple drinks and don't have
a designated driver to get you
home. Just call the quarterdeck
and they will get you a free cab.
There is absolutely no retribu-
tion for using this program,"
said Maclay.
The guest speaker for the
safety stand down was risk
management speaker and
comedian Bo Irvine, who was
the director of safety and occu-
pational health and fire protec-
tion at Kaneohe Marine Corps
Base Hawaii for 20 years.
"All of us practice risk man-
agement each and every day
but you put the value to what-
ever your risks might be. It


starts every morning when you
turn on the lights after getting
out of bed. Then if you take a
shower you put your hand in
to test the water you don't just
jump right in to see if it's hot or
cold. That's risk management,"
said Irvine.
Irvine then asked the audi-
ence why they wear seat belts.
Most answered "because it's
the law."
"That is the same answer all
over the world. This law was
made to protect us from our-
selves. Statistics prove that
wearing seat belts saves lives,"
he continued.
Irvine also discussed how


insurance companies charge
younger drivers much higher
rates because they tend to be
higher risk takers. "Eighteen
to 28 year olds are the highest
risk takers and that's why they
charge you 9 million dollars to
get car insurance because they
know you are going to have
accidents," he said.
"And, many of you joined the
military because you are risk
takers. Most risk takers don't
like risk management but you
can still be in the risk business
and be safe. If you are going
to go out and drink, always
have a designated driver and
make sure you choose that


person before you go, not after
everyone has already had a
few," stressed Irvine. "And, I
want you all to know that by
drinking a cup of coffee or an
energy drink will not make you
sober. If you are the designated
driver you don't get to drink!
Your friends and families lives
depend on you."
Irvine also stressed the
importance of not talking on
cell phones while driving.
"Distracted drivers get killed
or kill others. Can you imagine
a P-3 pilot playing video games
while flying the aircraft? If you
are driving 55 mph and looking
at your phone texting someone
you can't be concentrating on
driving down that road," he
continued.
"Remember, it's not the safe-
ty department's fault, not the
fire department's fault for not
responding quick enough to get
you out of the situation you got
yourself into. You control your
immediate destiny. Risk man-
agement is not rocket science
- it's something we practice
every day," concluded Irvine.
Maclay concluded the stand
down by stating, "Take this
information to heart, use risk
management wherever you go
and be safe."
"This was different from the
other safety stand downs I've
been to the guest speaker was
very humorous in presenting
the information. He definitely
got the point across," said AZ3
Mario Correa Jackson after the
brief.

Twenty-five expecting mothers of military members in the local area gather in
front of Winn Dixie as part of the Military Mom Diaper Dash on Nov. 17 spon-
sored by the USO, Chevy and Winn-Dixie.


The NAS Jacksonville USO partnered
with Chevy and Winn-Dixie to throw
25 expectant military moms a "Baby
Shower on Wheels" Nov. 17. The same
event was held at the NS Mayport USO
the previous day.
As part of the event, a "Military Mom
Diaper Dash" was held at three local
Winn-Dixie grocery stores allowing the
moms-to-be to dash in the store and
gather necessary items for their babies
such as diapers, wipes, bottles, etc. They
also had the opportunity to test drive
new Chevy models during the event.
"This was an opportunity for Chevy,
Winn-Dixie and the USO to give some-
thing back to the American heroes,"

expectant mothers headed back to the
USO to learn about car seat safety from a
representative of Safe Kids of Northeast
Florida, enjoy refreshments and receive
more free giveaways. It was also a time
for the moms-to-be to get some support
from others going through the same
thing they are going through which
eases some fear and anxiety.
One of the expectant mothers, Honey
Copeland said it was a great opportu-
nity to participate in the Diaper Dash
because not only did it give her a chance
to get some items for her baby; but it was
an opportunity to meet other pregnant
mothers and get some comfort since she
has been alone throughout her most of
her pregnancy because her spouse is on
deployment.

Greyhawks detachment



at NAS Jax for OLF



Whitehouse training


By Clark Pierce
Editor

A detachment of six
E-2C Hawkeyes and
two C-2A Greyhounds
from Carrier Airborne
Early Warning Squadron
(VAW )120 recently con-
cluded an 11-day, shore-
based training evolu-
tion for pilots at NAS
Jacksonville and Outlying
Landing Field (OLF)
Whitehouse. That train-
ing is followed by two
weeks of shipboard land-
ings on an underway air-
craft carrier.
VAW-120 is the Navy's
fleet replacement squad-
ron (FRS) for carrier air-
borne early warning
squadrons flying the
E-2C Hawkeye, and fleet
logistics support squad-
rons flying the C-2A
Greyhound aircraft. The
squadron's mission is to
train pilots, naval flight
officers, aircrew and
maintainers. Upon suc-
cessful completion of
their training syllabi,
they leave VAW-120 for
assignment to one of
the Navy's fleet E-2 or
C-2 squadrons based at
Naval Station Norfolk, Va.
or Naval Base Ventura
County at Point Mugu,
Calif.
VAW-120 Operations
Officer Cmdr. Brad
Stevens is officer-in-
charge of the detach-
ment.
"We brought 13 student
pilots -four Greyhound
and nine Hawkeye -
including one French
navy pilot. Teaching
pilots 'ball flying' using
the optical landing sys-
tem at OLF Whitehouse,
both day and night, is the
primary mission for this
detachment. It allows
student pilots get their
field carrier landing prac-
tice (FCLP), which rep-
resents the end of their
FRS training syllabi," said
Stevens.
At OLF Whitehouse,
VAW-120 landing sig-
nal officers (LSO) make
sure student pilots have
learned their lessons
well.
"Prevention of mis-
haps is the LSO's pri-
mary job. Whether it's
FCLPs at Whitehouse or
their first carrier land-
ing, each landing event
is analyzed, graded and
debriefed to pilots by
their LSO," said Stevens.
During the squad-
ron's detachment at NAS
Jacksonville, they average

Sniffle or Sneeze? No antibiotics please



CDC advises parents about colds, flu and antibiotics


From the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention


The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) has news for parents
this cold and flu season: antibiotics
don't work for a cold or the flu.
Antibiotics kill bacteria, not viruses.
And colds, flu and most sore throats
are caused by viruses. Antibiotics don't
touch viruses never have, never will.
And it's not really news.
It's a long-documented medical fact.
But tell that to parents seeking relief for
a child's runny nose. Research shows
that most Americans have either missed
the message about appropriate antibi-
otic use or they simply don't believe it.
It's a case of mistaken popular belief
winning out over fact. According to
public opinion research, there is a per-
ception that "antibiotics cure every-
thing."


Americans believe in the power of
antibiotics so much that many patients
go to the doctor expecting to get a pre-
scription. And they do.
Why? Physicians often are too pres-
sured for time to engage in lengthy
explanations of why antibiotics won't
work. And, when the diagnosis is uncer-
tain as many symptoms for viral and
bacterial infections are similar doc-
tors are more likely to yield to patient
demands for antibiotics.
Antibiotic resistance
The problem is, taking antibiotics
when they are not needed can do more
harm than good. Widespread inappro-
priate use of antibiotics is fueling an
increase in drug-resistant bacteria. And
sick individuals aren't the only people
who can suffer the consequences.
The most obvious consequence of
inappropriate antibiotic use is its effect


on the sick patient.
When antibiotics are incorrectly used
to treat viral infections, such as colds
and flu, people aren't getting the best
care for their condition.
Antibiotics won't fight the virus, make
the patient feel better, yield a quicker
recovery or keep others from getting
sick.
A less obvious consequence of antibi-
otic overuse is the boost it gives to drug-
resistant disease-causing bacteria.
Almost every type of bacteria has
become stronger and less responsive
to antibiotic treatment when it really is
needed.
These antibiotic-resistant bacte-
ria can quickly spread threatening the
community with a new strain of infec-
tious disease that is more difficult to
cure and more expensive to treat.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the


world's most pressing public health
problems.
Americans of all ages can lower this
risk by talking to their doctors and
using antibiotics appropriately.
What to do for colds/flu
Children and adults with viral infec-
tions recover when the illness has run
its course. Colds caused by viruses may
last for two weeks or longer.
Measures that can help a person
with a cold or flu feel better:
Increase fluid intake
Use a cool mist vaporizer or saline
nasal spray to relieve congestion
Soothe throat with ice chips, sore
throat spray or lozenges (for older chil-
dren and adults)
Viral infections may sometimes lead
to bacterial infections. Patients should
keep their doctor informed if their ill-
ness gets worse or lasts a long time.

DoDEA Educational Partnership awards $2.3 million grant to Clay County


From the Department of Defense
Education Activity


The Department of Defense Education Activity
(DoDEA) Educational Partnership award-
ed a $2.3 million grant to the Clay County School
District through the FY11 Grant Program. The
School District serves students whose parents
are assigned to Naval Air Station Jacksonville.
"The Department of Defense is strongly committed to
ensuring that the children of military families receive
an excellent education that prepares them for suc-
cessful careers and to be active contributors to their
communities and the nation," said Marilee Fitzgerald,
DoDEA acting director. "Our partnerships with public
schools serving military-connected families are an
important part of that commitment."
"We are extremely delighted to have the opportu-
nity to work with DoDEA in
providing academic and social/emotional support
for our military students," said Donna Wethington,
Clay County School District Supervisor of Student
Services.
The grant will focus on a K-12 Academic Program,
preparing teachers to integrate STEM content across
grades and disciplines. It will also provide support to
ease the challenges that military dependent students
face due to transitions and deployments.
"Student achievement in the academic areas of
Science, Technology, Engineering,
and Mathematics (STEM) has been a strong focus
and goal of our district to
prepare life-long learners for success in a global and
competitive workplace and
in acquiring applicable life skills," Wethington said.
"These funds will provide us with the additional sup-


port to accomplish those goals for all students along
with support
to over 1600 military students and their families to
help ease the challenges
that they face. We truly have been blessed with this
opportunity."
"I am very pleased the district has been
awarded this grant from DoDEA," said Ben H.
Wortham, Superintendent for the Clay County
School District. "These funds will certain-
ly benefit the students of our military fami-
lies and further broaden our curriculum."
Through this grant, teachers will benefit from profes-
sional development for implementation of the core
areas and coaching to increase academic relevance
back in the classroom for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade stu-
dents. All grants focus on enhancing student learn-
ing opportunities, student achievement, and educa-
tor professional development at military-connected
schools. Some grants also have a counseling compo-
nent that focuses on easing the challenges that mili-
tary students face due to transitions and deployments.
While some active duty military families are stationed
in overseas locations, the majority live on or near a
military installation in the U.S. Approximately 60
percent of the children of military families in the U.S.
are school age and the majority of them attend public
schools throughout the nation.
The Educational Partnership Grant Program is
designed to ease transition of children from mili-
tary families from attendance in DoDEA schools to
attendance in public schools. The program provides
assistance to support quality programs and strate-
gies to improve academic achievement and learn-
ing outcomes of children of military members.
DoDEA awarded more than $64 million in grants


Volunteers needed for Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind event


From the Florida School
for the Deaf and the Blind


The Florida School for the
Deaf and the Blind in St.
Augustine is hosting the U.S.
Association of Blind Athletes
National High School Goalball
Tournament on its campus Dec.
1-3. Thirteen boys teams and
11 girls teams from across the
nation will be competing for
the national title for this event,
and volunteers are requested to
work as line judges, scorekeep-
ers and timekeepers.
Goalball was developed in 1946 in an effort to help
in the rehabilitation of visually impaired World War II
veterans. This team sport, designed for blind athletes,
evolved into a competitive game and fully became


a part of the Paralympics during the 1980 Summer
Paralympics in Arnhem, Netherlands. Participants
compete in teams of three and throw a ball with bells
in it into the opponent's goal.
The players judge the position
and movement of the ball from
the sounds of the bells in the
ball.
Below are the dates/times for
volunteer availability:
Dec. 1 from 5-9:30 p.m.
Dec. 2 from 7:30 a.m. noon
Dec. 2 from 12:45-5 p.m.

NAS lax Deputy PAO

Children from the Child Development
Center cheered in the holiday season
as they gathered at the Navy Exchange
(NEX) kick off the annual NAS Jax
Giving Tree program Nov. 17. This is
the fifth year the NEX, USO and base
chapel have sponsored the tree which
helps military families in need during
the holiday season.
The event began as the group of pre-
schoolers sang "Here Comes Santa
Claus" and "We Wish you a Merry
Christmas" for the audience. NAS
Jacksonville Commanding Officer
Capt. Jeffrey Maclay then officially lit
the tree, which is on display at the NEX
Courtyard through the holiday season.

"We love sponsoring this program.
It will ensure that some of our military
children will have a Christmas that they
otherwise probably wouldn't have," said
NEX Manager Marsha Brooks.
While shopping at the NEX, cus-
tomers can pick a card from the giv-
ing tree and register their names with
Personalized Services, inside the NEX.
The gifts can then be purchased and
returned by Dec. 18. The USO and
Chapel staff will coordinate with tenant
commands to create Santa's List. They
will deliver the presents just in time to
bring joy to a child's Christmas.

NOVEMBER CHALLENGE:
Eating Healthy during the Holidays
This month, focus on changes youSe already

not so healthy dishes and desserts.
Some websites include:
www.foodfit.com
www.deliciousdecisions.or
www.allrecipes.com

NOVEMBER CHALLENGE:

Manage your Perspective
We all respond differently to life B
situations. Road rage is a perfect exanrple.
One person responds to a traffic terrorist with patience
or neutrality. And the next driver responds with anger
and an attempt to do harm. Why? Because their
perspectives are radically different.
Week 4 Goal: Focus on what is good
Okay, no one is perfect. You re not perfect. Your
partner s not perfect. But if we focus on the good in
our partner rather than wallowing in what s wrong with
them (in our opinion), then our perspective of our
relationship can be totally transformed. When we
focus on the good in our partner, we find the energy to
fix what s wrong. You have chosen to get into the
boat, quit shooting holes in it!
