They found part of a tail wing from a crashed World War II-era Vought F4U Corsair fighter plane. Corsairs were stationed aboard NAS Jacksonville from 1943 to 1954 according to Ron Williamson, safe ty manager for NAS Jacksonville and unofficial base historian. Corsairs were used by 15 base squadrons, he said. Fleet Readiness Center Southeast worked on 2,872 Corsairs over a ten-year period. Williamson estimates that there have been as many as 100 plane crashes on NAS Jacksonville over the years. By Reggie Jarrett Editor Jax Air News A Sailor stationed aboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville will be one of about 265 service members and veterans to participate in the 2018Department of Defense Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colorado. CS2 Mario Ingram will com pete in wheelchair basketball, seated volleyball, power lifting and track and field during the games, which be held at the Air Force AcademyJune 2-9. The games are open to wounded, ill and injured ser vice members from the U.S. military branches, as well as the United Kingdom and Australian Armed Forces. Ingram, in the Navy for eight years, was diagnosed with Stage 2 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2016. After sur gery and a course of chemo therapy, the cancer is now in remission. Because of the illness, Ingram was eligible to par ticipate in the Warrior Games. Although, when he wasfirst approached about it, he wanted no part of it. I didnt want to be bothered with anything, Ingram said. Despite the reluctance, Ingram decided to compete in the games in 2017. I gave it a chance and I ended up liking it, he said. Ingram played on the seated volleyball team, which won a team gold medal. He also com peted on the archery team, which won a bronze medal. He hopes to repeat the suc cess at this years games, but it is the camaraderie with the athletes that has made the big gest impact on Ingram. I made friends for life, he said of his fellow athletes. I love those guys. I cant wait to see them again. He will see them in April when the team meets for train NAVFAC Southeast participates in Engineering Career Day Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast civilians and military per sonnel participated in the Jacksonville District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) 2018 Engineering Career Day Feb. 23. The annual event introduces high school stu dents to engineering as a career by presenting hands-on activities, providing interaction with engineers from the government, private industry, and several university representatives, as well as providing a road map on how to become an engi neer.

4 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, March 29, 2018 Culinary specialists strive for certification By Hannah Simmons Staff Writer Culinary specialists (CS) and culinary evaluators from the Navy Region Southeast gathered for two days to par ticipate in a sous chef certifi cation exam aboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville March 13-14. Cathy Wiseman, a retired chief warrant officer 5, and David Bearl, certification testing and training specialist, hosted the training. Wiseman began offering these events here in 2012. I saw an opportunity while I was working in the River Cove Catering and Conference Center, Wiseman said. There were days when we werent busy, so I decided why not start training. This is not only a win for us by bringing in revenue, but it is an opportu nity for a culinary specialist to advance and for the shipmates to have better quality food. Bearl has been training Navy culinary specialists since 1989. During this exam, there were three official evaluators grad ing the CS students and three candidate evaluators who were grading the students as well, but their scoring did not count. The candidate evaluators must take part in evaluating three certification exams before their scores count and they become official evaluators. This is a dual-purpose exam giving culinary students and evaluators an opportunity to advance, Bearl said. I enjoy watching them suc ceed and being able to advance in their professions and rates. This class had 10 students and half tested each day. To qualify for this exam, Sailors need to be well-rounded, have excelled-management skills, and be a supervisor in his or her field. The exam consisted of two parts: a practical and a written portion. There were students working towards becoming a certified culinar ian, as well as becoming a cer tified sous chef. The students must show organization skills, craftsmanship, and follow the appropriate cooking methods that fall in line with the guide lines. The practical portion of the exam consisted of cooking globe artichokes, preparing a six-ounce steak to medium rare, fillet and poach a floun der, and prepare a classic mati gnon containing diced ham, celery and carrots. Students must exemplify their ability of caramelizing and display the four classical cuts: paysanne, dice, brunoise, and batonnet. The written portion involves terms and knowledge of French culinary cooking. Knowing these facts can prepare a CS for the rating exams. To pass the exam, students need to score at least 80 per cent on both the practical and written portions. These exams are high demanding. A lot of people struggle with the writ ten portion because they are not used to the terminology on the exam, Wiseman said. We try to continuously refine our teaching methods. By getting the information out earlier, so the students can gain an advanced foothold. After obtaining a certifica tion, it is good for five years. One NAS Jax Sailor is excited to take his skills back to his galley. CS2 Shane Thompson said, This exam gives me an oppor tunity to test my skills and show my abilities. Coming here pushes me to my edge and helps me strive to be a better cook. The knowledge we learn during this exam, not only helps us become certified, but we can bring that knowledge back to fleet.

JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, March 29, 2018 5 By Reggie Jarrett Editor Jax Air News The Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System (NOFFS) is an exercise and fitness program designed to teach Sailors how to increase their fitness level, and then teach what they learned to other Sailors. NOFFS is one of the best ways to get our Sailors in shape and keep them more mobile in a functional way, said Heather Carty, fitness instructor for Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville. We are looking to decrease injury and increase performance. The NOFFS class is taken by Sailors that have been rec ognized as command fitness leaders (CFL). They learn exercises that emphasize strength, stability and endurance. Command fitness leaders take this back to their com mands and teach their commands or squadrons how to do NOFFS exercises to make them stronger, said Jennifer Price, fitness coordinator of NAS Jacksonville. The NOFFS program was established in 2009 and it is an eight-hour course. It is offered about once a quarter. One of the CFLs taking the NOFFS training was CM1 Kenneth Kline of Construction Battalion Maintenance Unit 202. I enjoy working out, he said. It keeps me mellow throughout the day to get my work out in the morning and I have a better day. Kline, who has been a CFL for one year, also likes helping others improve their fitness level. I enjoy helping people get better. This is the one body you have for your entire life, so you might as well take care of it.

8 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, March 29, 2018 Preventive medicine, saving lives Continuing Promise Public Affairs The ability to shower in a remote campground, or shave every morning in a plastic storage container or walk on dry sand because of proper drain age are all luxuries made possible by the Continuing Promise 2018 (CP18) Forward Deployed Preventive Medicine Unit. Public health is an essential part of daily life, in and out of the military. Navy Environmental and Preventive Medicine Unit (NEPMU) 2 performs many tasks to help protect the Sailors and Soldiers, as well as the local com munity during CP18. Public health is a critical part of any mission, because if troops are sick, they cannot complete the mission, said HM1 Adriane Weldon, of Greenville, Alabama, who is assigned to NEPMU 2 in Norfolk. Educating the public really does help lessen the transmission and spread of diseases, as well as build a bond between nations. Public health covers a wide range of necessities such as water purification, epidemiology, parasitology, food-borne illnesses and berthing and food inspec tions. This is really a team effort here, said Lt. Cmdr. Amy Rogers, officer in charge of the Forward Deployed Preventative Medicine Unit. We have a physician, an entomolo gist, environmental health officer and three preventative medicine techni cians. The team began their mission in Honduras by coordinating meetings with local hospitals. Then, they gath ered a list of needs and organized train ings accordingly. Rogers explained the impact is more than one or two patients, its about the larger population and sustaining pre ventive measures like the use of bug spray or proper hand washing and sani tation measures. The team hosted an interactive table with microscopes and specimens such as a scorpion, mosquitoes and house flies. They went a step further and explained how children can minimize standing water, which is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Furthermore, during black-flag weather conditions, the team set up two BG-Sentinel mosquito traps around an open grass field behind the Franklin D. Roosevelt school in Puerto Cortes, to trap day-biting mosquitoes. Day-biting mosquitoes spread many of the epidemic diseases we are trying to prevent, said Weldon. This area is a great place to catch mosquitoes because the temperature, climate and extended period of time that its warm. Mosquitoes have a hard time flying against the wind, so the traps consist of a fan and catch net. The bait is a clear tube filled with small blue pebbles made of human hormone derivatives and scents, which mosquitoes can not resist. Once they enter the trap to explore the scent, they are unable to fly out against the fan. Once we catch the mosquitoes, we usually freeze them, said Weldon. We then identify the females by spe cies so we can determine if theyre car rying any diseases. Weldon went on to say that this area is very high in malaria and Zika, testing here provides a great deal of valuable knowledge that helps the team educate the public on how to minimize the risk of transmission. A lot of our job is learning and sharing that knowledge with the host nation, said Rogers. Thats why its so great having a team with all differ ent specialties, so we can communicate things from disaster response to mos quito safety and preventive measures. Members of the Forward Deployed Preventive Medicine Unit are truly the unsung heroes of any mission theyre on. While here, they are often hard to find, pending their time exploring the tall grasses and reeds of Honduras to seek out the creatures that most people avoid. They are the first line of defense between people and the dangers of the natural world around them. Photos by MC2 Brianna K. Green Navy Environmental and Preventative NAS Jacksonville Public Affairs The Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax) Morale, Welfare and Recreation Fitness Department created a new pro gram to assist those with fit ness goals in the new year, in conjunction with the Wellness Center. The Total Body Transformation (TBT) program began the first week of January open to all those with base access. We started off the program with participants getting their bodies measured in the bod pod which shows muscle, fat and other information, so that we could assess where they were starting from, said Misty Carman, Wellness Center nurse educator. Participants were then advised to fill out forms to be assigned a trainer at the base fitness center. Trainers were established along with the par ticipants availability so indi vidual goals could be achieved. Weekly hour-long classes were offered to continue the education of participants. The first week, a tour of the Commissary was given by Wellness staff members, with helpful pointers on which items are healthier. If you are trying to eat fresh and healthy, most of the items you are going to be purchasing will be on the outside perim eter, said Carman. A map of the commissary was handed out and informa tion that is located on healthier options was pointed out. You will see tags on items that are high fiber and other healthier items, said Commissary Store Manager Kim Jackson. The next topics covered dur ing the weekly classes included stress and eating management, supplements and flavoring food naturally, and meal prep ping. In the middle of the pro gram, another weigh in took place. NAS Jax Fitness Director Jill Sheppard dropped in to a class to make sure all the par ticipants were getting their needs met. Im here to get feedback on this trial run of the program because we want you all to be successful, Sheppard said. The group took a field trip together to Mulligans Restaurant aboard the base and together ate lunch and asked questions of the Wellness staff. For the last class, partici pants were asked to take a rec ipe they like and turn it into a healthy option. A potluck with the items and recipes were exchanged, while participants took a final bod pod assess ment to see how far they had come. I signed up for the TBT pro gram because I wanted to learn the proper way to fuel my body. I had reached a weight loss pla teau and needed guidance on what my next steps should be, said Family member Bristan Campbell. Im so glad we did the bod pod at the beginning and end; this was great to see our progress and keep us moti vated. Photos by Julie M.

JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, March 29, 2018 9 ing in California. Icant wait, he said. Ingram has been com petitive for most of his life. He was a three-sport athlete in high school, where he played base ball, football and basket ball. I play pretty much anything with a ball, he said. Even as a long-time athlete, Ingram learned a lot about himself with what he has gone through the last two years. I learned I can push myself to the limit, and then some, he said. Even in the worst of situ ations, I try to be positive because it doesnt mat ter how bad you have it, somebody has it worse. Ingram trains for an hour-and-a-half every day to keep up with other Warrior Games athletes. I have to train every day because those guys are serious, he said. He does cardio in the morn ing and weight-lifting in the evening. The other athletes he met durng the Warrior Games impressed Ingram with what they are able to accomplish. They motivate me a lot, he said. Some of those people do stuff I couldnt even fathom. They showed me that anything is possible. INGRAM From Page 1 WING From Page 1 pleting a surprise project assigned the day of the event, and completing a trivia challenge. For this years theme, Power of the Wind, students had to design and fabricate a portable wind turbine that could har ness wind energy and convert it to use ful power. Volunteer judges tested the projects by timing and mea suring the distance the turbine was able to raise a weight. The surprise project required students to design and construct a structure out of straws and tape that could sup port the weight of a tennis ball. The groups were judged on how long the structure could remain standing when placed in front of a fan. One of the eighth grade teams, from The Weiss School, located in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently working with SpaceX to deliver and monitor certain types of bacteria, to determine if they can exist in space. There are a bunch of smart kids out there, said McCarthy. It was a pleasure to work with them. The competition promotes Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). STEM is a national education program focused on preparing the workforce of tomor row by encour aging students today to focus on these areas of study. The hope is the competi tion will inspire the scholars efforts and energies toward careers in STEM fields in the future. During the event, NAVFAC Southeast Facilities Engineering Acquisition Division Director Lt. Cmdr. Richard Buechel and Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Assistant Public Works Officer Lt. j.g. Frank Sysko spoke to students about which engineering disciplines they were considering, what colleges they might be thinking of attending or if they were thinking about a military career. The information booth they set up provided the students informa tion on military and civilian STEM careers with the Navy. A few planes from that era may have crashed in our compound, said NMCs GM1 Ryan Stewart. We were very surprised to find it. The wing was found in the weapons area on the southern part of the base. The Corsair was used as acarrier-based aircraft, but it came to be known more as a land-based plane flown by theU.S. Marines in the Pacific, including the famous Black Sheep Squadron (VMF-214) led by Maj. Gregory Pappy Boyington. The Japanese called the Corsair Whistling Death because of the unique sound made by the shape of the planes wings, Williamson said. The section of wing is now on display in the Stearman Building in Heritage Park. As for the gopher tortoise they were looking for in the first place, they found him also. It is one of two tortoises that Environmental has been following with a tracking device. We had been tracking him, but we lost the signal just before Hurricane Irma, said Angela Glass, natu ral and cultural resourses manager for NAS Jax. We realized he had moved, because his burrow flooded. Environmental is tracking the gopher tortoises because they are a protected in Florida where they are listed as athreatened species. We figured he would go into weapons because there is good habitat for him, Glass said. He made a great new burrow.

Fowler Regional Park as part of the St. Johns River Celebration Cleanup. City of Jacksonville Parks Naturalist Supervisor Jean Schubert is pleased that Sailors have taken ownership of various portions of the park, located across Roosevelt Blvd. from the Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville Yorktown Gate. Last fall, Sailors from Fleet Area Control and Surveillance Facility Jacksonville (FACSFAC Jax) volunteered to maintain the parks historic brick road. It dates back to 1917, when the property was part of U.S. Army Camp Joseph E. Johnston. Todays cleanup is part of the recur ring process to maintain the historic brick road and control litterbugs across the park, said Schubert. We value the support we receive from NAS Jacksonville and its tenant commands, as well as from all area mili tary personnel and veterans. Because of tight budgets, were fortunate to have military men and women who volun teer to maintain parks throughout Duval County, she said. Volunteers from the following com mands took part in the cleanup: NAS Jax, Patrol Squadron 30, Southeast Regional Calibration Center, Mobile Tactical Operations Center-J reserve, Carrier Tactical Support Center Ashore Jacksonville, HSM-60, Information Warfare Training Center Virginia Beach site Jacksonville and Fleet Area Control and Surveillance Facility Jacksonville. I was really excited to participate in this event, to help give back to our local city that does so much for us Sailors, said LS3 Rebecca Brooks of NAS Jacksonville. I often take my sons to parks and want to show them to keep our environment clean, so everyone can enjoy these areas. Schubert concluded, Today, this park benefitted from the efforts of 47 Sailors and five civilian environmental staff who participated in the St. Johns River Celebration Cleanup. The final tally was 25 bags of trash and litter, plus, miscellaneous debris (including three tires) for a total weight in excess of 1,760 pounds. The volunteers gathered it all in just two hours, expending a total of 100 man hours a labor value to the City of Jacksonville worth $2,000. Photos by Julie M. Lucas
