annual food and toy drive.
As part of the holiday tradi-
tion the USO is teaming with
Naval Station Mayport, the
Base Chapel, Mayport NEX
and Commissary to help meet
the needs of young military
families.
The intent of the holiday
food drive is to assist those

The program is designed to
help the active duty families
with children that are physical-
ly stationed on Naval Station
Mayport or the Coast Guard

The military member must
be in good standing with
the military. This program
includes all ashore/afloat
commands. The success of
the food drive is dependent
upon the generosity of the
local community, as well as
NS Mayport.
For the third year in a row,
Mayport USO will also be
collecting toys and accept-
ing nominations for the NEX
Giving Tree.

Brazil's Deputy Chief of Operations, Naval Operations Command Staff, Rear Adm. Edlander
Santos met with Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command (NAVSO) Rear Adm. James
W. Stevenson Jr. and Navy Section Chief U.S. Military Group Brazil, Cmdr. Dennis Quick, during a
visit to NAVSO headquarters. Santos was in Mayport for the U.S. and Brazilian Operational Navy
Committee Conference, an annual meeting to enhance professional exchanges and interoperability
between the U.S. and Brazil to support maritime security in Latin America.



NAVSO Hosts '08



Bilateral Conference


By MC2(SW)

Public.
Delegates from the U.S.
Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast
Guard met with members of
the Brazilian Navy Nov. 5-6 to
discuss interactions and coop-
eration between their navies
for 2008 during the U.S. Navy
and Brazilian Navy Operational
Naval Committee (ONC Brazil)
conference.
Hosted by U.S. Naval Forces
Southern Command (NAVSO)
in Mayport, ONC Brazil is an
annual conference to plan and
agree to the various exercises
and theater security coopera-
tion events the U.S. and Brazil
intend to conduct for the
upcoming year. The ONC brings
together representatives from
the U.S. and Brazilian Navy
so they may meet in person to
discuss their countries mutual


goals of maritime security in
Latin America.
"ONCs are a key part of our
ongoing engagement strat-
egy with partner nations,"
said NAVSO Director of
Exercises and Theater Security
Cooperation (TSC) Capt. Steven
Blaisdell. "These face-to-face
meetings help us understand
each other's priorities and needs
so we can work together toward
mutual interests, which include
improving regional maritime
security."
Brazil and the U.S. have a
strong partnership in maritime
security through many exercises
and events. Cooperation and
training events in the past have
included Panamax and Unitas
Atlantic exercises, and recent
anti-submarine warfare training
with the Brazilian submarine
Tikuna (S 34). All of these inter-
actions resulted from work done
at previous ONC meetings.


"Our Navy has the same bene-
fit as the U.S. Navy; we achieve
much cooperation and that is
a win-win for both our coun-
tries in this conference," said
Rear Adm. Edlander Santos,
Brazilian Navy, Operations
Deputy, Naval Operations
Command. "When we deepen
our relationship, it benefits both
our countries."
ONC Brazil result-
ed in a Memorandum of
Understanding, signed this year
by Blaisdell and Santos, which
outlined the discussed plans
for U.S. and Brazilian inter-
actions for the coming year.
Though ONCs have been held
for years, the agreements they
produce and engagements they
lead to directly support the U.S.
Navy's new Maritime Strategy,
which emphasizes cooperative
relationships with international
partners.


Phil Sea Completes Force


Protection Certification


By MC3 David Wyscaver
Nassau Strike Group Public. -"
Sailors with the Nassau Strike
Group (NASSG) successfully
completed its Anti-Terrorism/
Force Protection certifica-
tion exercise on Naval Station
Norfolk Nov. 1-2 in an effort to
enhance the strike group's secu-
rity capabilities through train-
ing.
Sailors from USS Nassau
(LHA 4), USS Ross (DDG 71),
USS Philippine Sea (CG 58),
USS Bulkeley (DDG 84), USS
Nashville (LPD 13), and USS
Ashland (LSD 48) experienced
a variety of simulated terrorist
events in real-world land, sea
and air situations.
"This exercise included a
series of drills to exercise our
ability to protect ships and their
crew members. Vehicle-born
IED's, suspicious packages and
premeditated attacks were just
a few of the incidents Sailors
experienced during this train-
ing exercise," said Lt. Rodney
Kelly, Phillipine Sea weapons
officer.
Commander, Strike Force
Training Atlantic (CSFTL)


organized the exercise ensur-
ing that each NASSG ship had
the opportunity to partake in the
events and receive a grade on
their performance.
Once the ships successfully
passed each of the outlined
areas they received a certifica-
tion highlighting their accom-
plishments throughout the
training exercise. Of the ships
tested, Nassau and Philippine
Sea received perfect grades,
prompting a "Bravo Zulu" from
commander, 2nd Fleet.
"Each ship goes through this
Force Protection exercise every
two years," explained Chief
Warrant Officer Tracy McIntyre,
anti-terrorism force protection
officer for NASSG. "They have
to successfully pass 12 out of
the 15 drills and get an 80 per-
cent score to receive a Second
Fleet certification."
"It's important for each of
the ships to become certified
because once they are overseas
they're going to have to respond
to a variety of situations similar
to the ones they faced in the
two-day exercise," said William
Cohen, an engineering techni-


cian with CSFTL.
Through this exercise, some
Sailors were also given the
opportunity to volunteer to play
the role of a 'terrorist' and assist
in testing the abilities of each
ship's force protection. Without
warning, these individuals
would carry out mock terrorist
activities and try to elude force
protection members before
eventually being apprehended.
"My role during the exercise
was to create a diversion by dis-
tracting the watches so the sim-
ulated terrorists could carry-out
their actions," said Electrician's
Mate 2nd Class Earl Stagg of
Bulkeley. "One thing I will take
away from my role in this train-
ing is the importance of always
keeping your eyes open and
being aware of your surround-
ings. Anything can happen at
anytime."
"This was a great opportunity
for me and my shipmates to par-
ticipate in the training evolution
which allowed us to showcase
our ability to demonstrate effec-
tive force-protection tactics in a

thanks to the many officers that
played an integral role through-
out his career, but adamantly
expressed his appreciation to
the crew.
"Many times, I am given
credit for all of your hard work,"
he said. "We were able to meet
every challenge, complete all


assigned tasking, and respond to
every bell called ordered. This
tour could not have been as suc-
cessful without you."

2 THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, November 15, 2007


CO Column


I can't tell you how proud I
am of the entire Naval Station
and its personnel for putting on
the best airshow I have seen in
my entire career.
The weather was perfect,
the show was outstanding, the
execution was flawless, and
it was because of all of you
behind the scenes. I was the
fortunate one who got to hear
more compliments than prob-
ably anyone about the qual-
ity of our station and its peo-
ple. The compliments came
from multiple sources such
as the CO of the Blue Angels,
Airshow Narrator, Airshow
Coordinator, demo pilots and
performers, Jacksonville Beach
Police Department, Jacksonville
Special Events Coordinator,
people stopping me at the show
and on the streets and the list
goes on. I didn't see anything
but smiles all weekend. Thanks
to everyone for all your help.
Thank you to everyone who
participated in the speaker's
event at local schools and
retirement facilities in honor
of Veterans Day on Friday. It
was so exciting for the kids and
even more so for the folks at


Capt. Aaron Bowman
the retirement homes to listen
to Sailors speak about what it
means to be a veteran. I had the
pleasure of speaking at Finegan
Elementary last week and it was
an honor to see so many young
patriotic children honor our men
and women in uniform. Special
thanks to Principal David Pinter
and his staff for hosting a great
Veterans Celebration, and
thanks to our own Command
Master Chief Davidson who
spear headed the military por-
tion of the ceremony. Last but
not least, thanks to the talent-
ed Fletcher High School Wind


Ensemble for providing excep-
tional music.
Naval Station Mayport's main
gate will be closed to inbound
and outbound traffic, due to
construction, from Dec. 15 until
Jan. 7.
As an alternative to the main
gate, the Edwards Ave. Gate,
which is located prior to the
pass and ID office on Mayport
Road, will be open. Inbound
and outbound traffic will be
routed through housing using
the Edwards Avenue Gate.
Traffic will exit the housing
area across from the Housing
Welcome Center. Residents in
the housing area along Edwards
Avenue and Everglades Street
are requested to park all vehi-
cles in their driveways during
this period due to the increased
traffic.
The Hanna Park/Seminole
Gate will be open Monday
through Friday from 5 8 a.m.
for inbound traffic and 3 5 p.m.
for outbound traffic and closed
on weekends and holidays. Gate
5 will be open from 5 a.m. 5
p.m. during the weekdays and
closed on weekends. All per-
sonnel working on the aviation


side of the station and anyone
using Wonderwood Drive are
encouraged to turn onto A1A
and use Gate 5 to avoid traffic
delays. Because this timeframe
covers the holiday period and
school will be out, drivers must
be extremely watchful for chil-
dren and pedestrians in housing.
Parking and traffic regulations
will be strictly monitored and
enforced during this period.
Naval Branch Health Clinic's
staff at Health Promotion by
the Ocean is recognizing "The
Great American Smoke Out"
during the month of November.
Smokeless tobacco users are
included in this month-long
campaign. According to the
American Cancer Society, more
than 9,000 people die every
year from oral cancers. Gum,
cheek and tongue cancers are
painful and unsightly. After
expensive, often painful treat-
ments, dying from cancer is still
a tragic reality every year for
thousands of smokeless tobacco
users. Nobody starts out using
smokeless tobacco expecting to
become part of these statistics.
I used to use smokeless and did
it for 20 years until I quit in


August 2006 and I don't miss
it. If you want to know how and
why I did it, drop me an email.
Call Health Promotion at 270-
5251 for more information on
becoming tobacco free.
The U.S. Navy Child and
Youth Programs will launch Fit
Factor, a new web based pro-
gram that will reward youth
for being active and making
healthy choices everyday. Fit
Factor encourages youth to be
physically active for at least
60 minutes each day through a
variety of activities and to make
healthy eating selections. Fit
Factor will be launched Navy-
wide this month so if you have
kids, join in the fun! Activities,
games and registration will take
place locally. Contact or visit
your local youth center for more
information.
Get ready for some great light
shows on base this year. I'm
ready to take the heat for burn-
ing up some kilowatts in order
for this base to have some great
Holiday spirit. We are plan-
ning a base tree village area,
are coordinating with GMH
and MWR on a house decorat-
ing contest, and will once again


have the ship decorating con-
test.
I had a sad moment this past
Sunday. I drove up to the NEX
Ameri-Store at 7:56 a.m. and
was waiting in my car for the
doors to open at 8 a.m. About
that time another car with two
Sailors drove up and they got
out of their car to stand outside
to wait.
As colors started, they both
proceeded to joke about not tak-
ing their civilian ball caps off
and talked and laughed during
both the U.S. and our foreign
ship anthems. After colors was
over I don't think they were too
happy to find out I watched the
whole event.
One thing I do to ensure we
honor our country is with every
visitor I have on base I brief
them what happens at 8 a.m.
and sunset and tell them what
they should do and what they
will see everyone on this base
do to respect our country and its
guests. Everyone of you make
this the best base in all of DoD.
Keep your thoughts coming

By Cmdr.
Jon C. Fredrickson
Spiritual Fitness Center Director
One of the neurotic rules that
some of live by is that we must
be responsible for the health,
wealth and happiness of other
people.
As we obey this rule through
the years, "What must I do for
others?" often becomes the con-
suming question of our lives.
In some marriages it works
this way: We know that Bonnie
loves Ray because she worries
about him so much. She antici-
pates his every wish, spares


him every inconvenience and
binds his wounds before he
even knows that he's been hurt.
Managing Ray's life, in fact,
is Bonnie's full time job. She
works hard at it and she hasn't
got time for much of anything
else.
Most of the time Bonnie feels
satisfied with the choices she
has made in life. She's proud
of the efficiency and order that
reigns in their home. Bonnie
doesn't like loose ends or unre-
solved situations, and in her
world, they don't exist. Ray
seems happier now than he did


when Bonnie first took charge.
Until Bonnie convinced him
to sit back and take it easy, he
seemed strangely resentful and
angry about every little aspect
of her organizational plan. But
he got over it. Now he dozes
a lot in front of the TV while
Mary works on her lists.
In the end, compulsive, slav-
ish service is not a gift; it is a
conditioned response to life.
Trying to buy love with pres-
ents we can't afford is irrespon-
sibility, not generosity. Totally
expending ourselves in order
to order our world is not love


but a lust for power. Strange as
it may sound, our own mental
health is no doubt the greatest
gift we can give anybody, which
means if we really want to give
our loved one a favor, we will
take care of ourselves.
Putting ourselves first is not
a recipe for self-centeredness.
We do live in a myopic, narcis-
sistic society that elevates the
pursuit of self-indulgence to an
art form, yet a basic concept of
personal growth, indeed, a basic
concept of sanity is knowing
how and where to draw bound-
aries in our lives.


It is a very easy thing to draw
a box, live in it and decide to
never let anyone in or never
let any of us out. It is equally
easy to let everyone and any-
thing invade our space and suck
whatever they want out of us.
Balance is the key.
To give ourselves permission
to say no when no is needed to
safe guard ourselves is as nec-
essary a lesson for living a full
life as it is to say yes when yes
is needed to stretch us beyond
ourselves and know the satis-
faction of having a purpose that
bigger than ourselves.


CREDO exists to provide
Sea Service married couples
a retreat format that explores
what a life giving relationship
is all about. Too many of us fall
into a category where a mar-
riage feels like a trap and our
significant other is anything but
significant.
If you would like to spice up
your marriage and find out what
is really needed to enjoy a full
and inviting relationship, give
us a call at 270-6958.


H omefront in Focus


By Beth Wiruth
Military Spouse Support Contributor
In the past two weeks I have
military friends or acquain-
tances that were affected by the
apparent tornado in Pensacola,
evacuated by fires in southern
California, and lost their home
to a tree felled in the Santa Ana
winds. All of them are fine. All
have similar comments, "We
weren't prepared. We never
thought it would affect us." One
San Diego family stated they
had about six minutes to evacu-
ate. Not enough time to gather
anything. "We left with just the
clothes on our back and a few
pictures.
As military families we reg-
ularly hear about the topic of
'readiness.' I recently had cof-
fee with a seasoned wife who
mentioned she was not going to
the command pre-deployment
night because she "would hear
the same old stuff." And just
last night I attended a meeting
of ombudsmen who were asked
by the base CO, "How many of
you have a disaster kit?" The
room was full but only two
hands were raised.
I am going to be blunt, and
in so doing I hope to help us all

"The greatest tragedy is
being forgotten." This could be
a motto for the Jacksonville-
based Wounded Warrior Project
(WWP), a non-profit organi-
zation that has been working
since 2003 to re-acclimate seri-
ously wounded service men and
women returning home from
Iraq and Afghanistan.
At 12:30 p.m. on Nov.18, the
Mayport Chapter of MOAA
(Military Officers Association
of America) and its guests
will receive a program update
from Steven Nardizzi, one
of the organization's found-
ers. Nardizzi serves as Deputy
Executive Director, Operations.
This meeting is open to the gen-
eral public.
Nardizzi manages fundrais-
ing, financing and legal mat-
ters for the Wounded Warrior
Project. He helped draft the
original text for the Traumatic
Injury Servicemen's Group Life
Insurance Benefit Bill, which
has processed over $200 million
in benefits. Nardizzi has more
than ten years experience as an
-attorney representing disabled
'veterans for several veterans'


avoid disaster compounded by
a lack of readiness. It is OUR
responsibility to be prepared for
disaster. Our nation has expe-
rienced enough disasters/crisis
in the past six years to realize a
few things. The federal govern-
ment is not God and therefore
cannot redirect hurricanes, calm
tornados, redirect flood waters
to drought-stricken areas or dis-
perse a blizzard. Further, they
are NOT omnipresent and can-
not be there within a three-min-
ute response time. And it is not
their job.
Local authorities are our first-
responders. In a disaster first
responders include police, fire
fighters, and medical person-
nel to name a few and they
are finite in their numbers and
abilities. And they work mira-
cles. But we must take personal
responsibility seriously. Let me
repeat that, we must take per-
sonal responsibility very seri-
ously. Now is the time to create
that disaster plan for you and
your family. And it is not as dif-
ficult as you think!
A disaster plan involves three
main areas: a communica-
tion plan, a disaster kit and an
evacuation plan. An effective


organizations. He also helped
found Solder Ride, an affiliate
charity to WWP which assists
in the rehabilitation of injured
service members by sponsoring
a cross country cycling event.
The WWP organization
strives to provide services for
the injured and their families
during the initial rehabilitation
phase while on active duty until
they transition to civilian life.
To carry out this vital mission,
the WWP offers free assistance
to pursue benefits from the
Department of Veterans Affairs
and other agencies.
Reservations for the brunch
are required and may be made
prior to Nov. 15 on the chap-
ter's website: http://mpmoaa.
org/ or by calling Ann Froehlich
at 646-0944. The cost is $15.
All active and retired mem-
bers of America's uniform ser-
vices are eligible for member-
ship in MOAA. It is the nation's
largest and most influential
association of military officers.

communication plan is easy.
Determine a family member or
friend outside your local area to
call to 'report in.' Often phone
lines (including cell phone)
and circuits are swamped in
the affected area. By contact-
ing grammy in Phoenix or Aunt
Delia in Pittsburgh all family
members can report in and all
can be ascertain where they are
and their status. For Navy fami-
lies there is another number that
needs to be part of that commu-
nication plan: 1-877-414-5358.
This number is manned 24/7
and able to direct the right ser-
vices to you for your situation.
Put this number in your wallet;
program it into your cell phone.
This is the Navy's customer
service hotline which during a
crisis becomes the conduit to
provide support and assistance
to Navy families. Make sure all
family members know who to
call.
Step two is the disaster kit.
Please check out the Red Cross
site: www.arcventura.org/get-
prepared.html for specific
information on the items for
your disaster kit. Remember to
assemble these items in a closet
or areas that everyone knows

where it is located. Make readi-
ness a family effort. Check
out this link for helping your
children learn about readiness:
(http://www.redcross.org/ser-
vices/prepare/0,1082,0_85_,00.
html). Take the time to read and
utilize the information on these
two sites and remember the
motto: Three days, three ways.
Be prepared to survive for three
days and have three ways to
evacuate your home and neigh-
borhood. Practice these evacua-
tion plans.
Most importantly as Navy
families, register your family -
before disaster at https://www.
navyfamily.navy.mil/. This is
the Navy Family Accountability
and Assessment System. This
system enables the Department
of the Navy to assist each fam-
ily affected by a national disas-
ter/crisis or a personal situation,
as well as IA's and their fami-
lies. Logon to the site and com-
plete the registration informa-


tion. In an emergency you may
either call the toll free number
(1-877-414-5358) or logon to
update your status and indicate
your needs if any. A case man-
ager will be assigned and prop-
er resources will be brought to
bear to meet your needs; wheth-
er an ambulance to a chaplain.
Military Families (and all
families) should assemble a
"readiness binder" or folder or
even a backpack with impor-
tant papers (copies) that can be
easily grabbed as you dash out
the door. Papers and informa-
tion to include in this binder
would be a copy of your most
recent orders, copies of driver's
licenses, military ID's, medical
information (medications and
dosages), all account numbers
(bank, credit card, insurance
policies), copy of birth certifi-
cates and marriage license to
name a few. And tuck into this
same binder CASH. Put away
$15 per paycheck for one year


and you will have $360 for gas,
hotel, food, and other expenses
in case you cannot access your
bank account immediately.
Let's learn from those who
recently endured much and help
lessen the impact of a disaster
on ourselves and our families.
Join me in becoming a prepared
Military family. Establish your
disaster plan, and practice it, by
Thanksgiving.
Note to readers from other
branches of the service. For
specific information on disaster
services for your branch contact
your local family service center
or contact me at beth@home-

glad to give you contact infor-
mation.

Stay Off The Phone While


Driving On NS Mayport


From Staff
Driving on Naval Station
Mayport is a privilege for
active duty, civilian and con-
tractors.
During the past few years, NS
Mayport and DoD have put a lot
of focus on the responsibility of
drivers while on base. Recently,
the Department of Defense put
out a regulation regulation ban-
ning the use of non-hands free
cell phones on military instal-
lations unless the vehicle is
safely parked. This includes
"Bluetooths."
Cell phones may only be
used while on "Speaker" mode,
according to Commander, Navy
Installations Command guid-
ance. The driver may talk while
in speaker mode, but the phone
must not be held by the driver
and the driver may not dial or
adjust the phone. Cell phones
cppnot be used with a hands-


free earpiece. This policy also
includes text messaging and
using the picture feature of a
cell phone.
The Defense Department
developed the regulation based
on a study by the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, which found
cell phone use to be the fastest
growing and most visible cause
of automobile accidents caused
by distracted driving.
Base police will pull over
drivers caught talking on the
cell phone.
A maximum of four points
could be added to a motorist's
driving record if cited for using
a cell phone while driving.
If you accumulate 12 points
over the course of one year,
your base driving privileges will
be revoked.
Service members who are
caught will not only have these


points added, but they could
face penalties for failure to obey
an order or regulation under
Article 92 of the Uniform Code
of Military Justice.
The restriction not only
applies to service members who
drive on Navy installations, but
also to their families, civilian
employees and visitors to the
base as well.
This regulation will be
enforced inside the fence line
of the base, and in the vicinity
of the Navy Exchange and any
other areas that are patrolled by
Navy law enforcement.
Base personnel with ques-
tions about the procedures are
encouraged to use their chain of
command.

New Faces At Naval Station Mayport


Calhoun Joins Chapel


From Staff
Lt. Rory Calhoun may have
spent most of his career in the
U.S. Army, but he found his
calling in the Navy.
A former enlisted U.S. Army
soldier and Army National
Guard and Army Reserves offi-
cer, Calhoun has been at Naval
Station Mayport's Base Chapel
since August, where he serves
as a protestant minister.
A native Texan, Calhoun
joined the Army in August 1983
and served for eight years.
"I went into the Army,
because I needed college
money," he said. "I was 20
years old and half way through
that [enlistment] I figured there
was a higher calling for me."
Calhoun said when his eight
years was up, he transferred into
the Texas Army National Guard
and went to Operation Desert
Storm. He made Staff Sergeant
in the Guard before he was sent
to Officer Candidate School.
After graduating in 1994, he


Lt. Rory Calhoun
served as a 2nd lieutenant Signal
Corps and as a platoon leader
executive officer. In 1997 as a
1 t lieutenant, Calhoun received
his first call to join the ministry,
although he wouldn't answer it
for two more years.
He received his BA in
Political Science in 1998 from
the SW Texas State University,
now known as Texas State
University in San Marcos,
Texas. In 1999, he joined the
U.S. Army Reserves and sur-


rendered to his calling by start-
ing at South Western Baptist
Theological Seminary.
Calhoun graduated in 2004
with a Master's in Divinity.
He also served as Deputy
Chief of Staff of Information
Management in the Army
Reserves as a captain.
While attending seminary
school his was approached by a
Navy recruiter.
"He told me about the Navy,"
he said. "After 23 years of mili-
tary, I knew I could relate to the
Sailors, Soldiers and Marines
on all the issues that they are
facing. I have been prior enlist-
ed and an officer. I'm better
equipped to relate because of
my background."
A protestant chaplain in the
National Baptist denomination,
Calhoun said that he is also
willing to perform gospel ser-
vices if he sees interest from the
congregation.
Calhoun is married with four
children and a granddaughter.


Have A Worry-Free Winter


By Tom Claudio
Fire Prevention (
As the temperatures drop, the
number of residential fires go
up. The Naval Station Mayport
Fire & Emergency Services
Department wants you to have a
worry free winter by taking the
following precautions:
Before the home heating sea-
son begins, have a qualified ser-
viceman inspect your furnace
and change filters. Make sure
that all papers, trash and flam-
mable liquids are kept away
from the furnace area.
If you have a fireplace or
wood stove that you use for
home heating, make sure it's
cleaned and inspected by a
qualified chimney sweep. Burn
only dry, well-seasoned hard
woods such as oak, hickory
and maple. Avoid wood that is
green and moist. When using


your fireplace, make sure the
opening is covered with a metal
screen or glass doors, and never
leave a fire unattended. A wood
stove should have a minimum
clearance of 36 inches between
the stove and combustible walls
and ceilings. Flammable liquids
should never be used to start or
accelerate any fire. Place ashes
in a metal container and store
outside away from the house.
Portable space heaters, elec-
tric or kerosene also need spe-
cial attention. Make sure there
is a minimum of 36 inches of
clearance on all sides of the
heaters. Small children should
not be left unattended in a room
with a portable heater. Follow
the manufacturer's suggestions
for proper operation and main-
tenance. Keep kerosene stored
in approved metal containers in
a well-ventilated area outside


the house, and never attempt to
refuel a heater while it's operat-
ing or hot.
Frozen water pipes? Never
try to thaw them with a torch
or other open flame. Use hot
water or UL-labeled device for
thawing.
Make sure there are operat-
ing smoke detectors on each
level of your home. Your family
should have and practice regu-
larly a home fire escape plan.
Contact the Naval Station
Fire & Emergency Services
Department, if you have any
questions or for additional
information.


From NLSO
Beginning in January, NS
Mayport will offer free tax
preparation services to active
duty, dependents, retirees, and
reservists on active duty for
more than 30 days. Through
this program, service members
not only can save hundreds of
dollars on tax preparation fees,
but they also get their refund in
just a couple of weeks.
The only way to offer such a
service free of charge is to enlist
the aid of volunteers through
the IRS-sponsored Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance program.
Through the VITA program,
volunteers are trained by IRS
employees using IRS-approved
software. Volunteers will attend
an intensive week-long course
from January 7-11, 2008 and

From Staff
Senior Chief Electronics
Technician Mark Prince has a
diverse job he's the new Equal
Opportunity Advisor (EOA) for
Naval Station Mayport.
On the job for a little more
than a month, Prince is already
looking to expand the role of
the base's diversity council
by recognizing the different
heritages and cultures found
throughout the Navy on a
monthly basis. Each month, the
Navy celebrates a different cul-
ture, such as Native Americans
in November. October was
Hispanic Heritage month.
Prince's path to EOA start-
ed in Bangor, Washington
while he was stationed at
NAVCOMTELSTA, Puget
Sound.
"That's where I was a mem-
ber of the multicultural com-
mittee," he said. "It's where I
gained my interest in EO. We
had a lot of very nice events.
Our multicultural committee
was very active."
A native of Detroit, Michigan,
Prince joined the Navy in 1986
and has spent time as a subma-
riner aboard USS Sam Houston
(SSN 609) in Pearl Harbor,
Hawaii, to Washington, USS

sor. CMEO assists commands
in supporting the Navy's equal
opportunity policy.
After Nebraska, Prince served
as the Navigation department
senior enlisted advisor aboard
USS West Virginia (SSBN 736)
before going to the Defense
Equal Opportunity Management
Institute in Cocoa Beach at
Patrick Air Force Base.
At Mayport, Prince said one
of his goals is to make the diver-
sity committee and EO program
successful through increased


awareness of the programs.
"EO is Mission Readiness,"
he said. "I really do believe that.
"By changing back to monthly
celebrations, I think it will put
the diversity council back into
everyone's minds. Also it will
help people realize the differ-
ences of the people serving in
the Navy. It's important to learn
that the Navy is made up of dif-
ferent types of people."
"Everything has become more
diverse through globalization,"
he continued. "It behooves us to
know more about those around
us. It will not only help you
with your job in the Navy, but
your time out of the Navy."
Prince said that he highly
encourages Sailors to join
the base council by calling
270-7068 or mailing mark.
h.prince@navy.mil. They can
also call NC1 Grindstaff or
CMEO Chief Petty Officer
Theodore Lundy.
"[The diversity council] is
your venue to voice your cul-
ture and share it with your com-
mand," he said.
Prince is located in Building
460. He is also available to
serve as a Navy mediator. Other
services offered through EOA
include sexual harassment, frat-
ernization and discrimination
training.

CNRSE visits FISC JAX


From FISC JAX
Rear Adm. Michael C. Vitale,
Commander, Navy Region
Southeast (CNRSE), visited
Fleet and Industrial Supply
Center Jacksonville (FISC JAX)
Headquarters Oct. 29.
He met with key headquar-
ters staff and FISC JAX Site
Directors from across Navy
Region Southeast. Capt. Karl
Rau, FISC JAX commanding
officer and CNRSE Program
Director (PD) for Logistics,
gave Vitale a command over-
view highlighting FISC JAX's
successes in supporting the
Fleet, Fighter, and Family
across the Southeast Region.
"FISC JAX is the logistics
leader in the Southeast Region.
We support the Fleet in a myr-
iad of ways including Aviation
Industrial Support, Acquisition
Support, Mail services, Fuel
services, and Household Goods
services," said Rau.
"Other important functions


we provide include the Navy
Food Management Team,
Contracting, and Inter-Service
Supply Support Operations
Program (ISSOP) manage-
ment," he said. "These are just
a fraction of the things we do to
support the Warfighter. Once
Enterprise Resource Planning
(ERP) is in place, customers
will see an improved level of
support."
Navy ERP is a management
system that standardizes Navy
business operations to increase
effectiveness and efficiency.
Vitale was particularly inter-
ested in how FISC JAX would
implement ERP and the pos-
sibility of using the success-
ful components of ERP in the
future for the Southeast Region.
Throughout the presentation,
Rau engaged Vitale in dialogue
detailing FISC JAX's ongoing
dedication to provide top qual-
ity logistics support to the 20-
plus installations Vitale com-


mands. Rau assured Vitale that
FISC JAX's workforce of near-
ly 1300 stands ready to meet the
Southeast Region's challenges
now and into the future.
After the briefing ended,
Vitale spoke to the meeting
attendees about his expectations
of FISC and its role in keeping
the Southeast Region mission
ready. In particular, he lauded
the Command's strategic initia-
tive of using Lean Six Sigma
to improve the Products and
Services provided to its cus-
tomers. The admiral closed by
stating that "3 P's" drive his
thought process: "Pragmatism,
Parsimony, and Perseverance."
He is data-driven, and focused
on metrics. He is focused on
the product produced, and if not
up to par, he will focus on the
process via which that product
is produced. He will look for
substance over form.

The Sullivans' CICO Runs

Marine Corps Marathon


From USS The Sulhlvans
More than 21,000 people
gathered across from the
Pentagon to run in the 32nd
annual Marine Corps Marathon
and USS The Sullivans' Ensign
Jeff Milota and wife Rachel
were among those braving cool
weathers for a good cause.
Tamrat Ayalew, of Ethiopia,
was the first to cross the finish
line with a time of 2:22:18. The
first Marine Corps Marathon
began in 1976 with nearly 2,000
participants. It is the largest
marathon in the world that does
not offer prize money, earning
its nickname, "The People's
Marathon."
"Some were ready to walk
as fast as they could while oth-
ers had clean shaven bodies,
equipped with the latest energy
technology," Milota said. "My
wife Rachel and I were in the
middle, happy to be there, and
ready to enjoy the day. We had
26.2 miles to go and we were
ready."
The course is 26.2 miles long
and winds around monuments
in the Washington area, includ-
ing those in the National Mall.
Spectators were estimated to
number near 100,000.
"The Marathon took us
throughout the Washington,
D.C. Mall," he said. "We ran
through, over and around
more than 70 percent of the
city's memorials. For most
of the run, the Washington
Monument loomed above us
as if it was watching over each
participant. As we passed the
half way landmark, we began
wondering what possessed us to
try something like this, but we
pushed through. People lined
the entire 26.2 miles cheering

Marathon on Oct. 28.


us on and handing out snacks of
all sorts to keep our energy high
and spirits higher."
"Approaching mile 19 and the
infamous 'bridge,' we new we
had to finish the race," he con-
tinued. "Come broken bones,
torn muscles, anything, we
were going to finish. The next
obstacle came at mile 25 with
just over one mile remaining.
It seemed to stretch on forever.
It did, with a dreadfully steep
37 percent incline all the way
to the finish line. The last two
tenths of a mile were filled with
the energy from the crowd as
they cheered us on, and the joy
of finally being done. Rachel


and I pushed out the last drop
to finish strong and to finish
together. We could not have
been happier to hear the chirp
of our computer chip as we
crossed the line. We did it!"
"Many of the 30,500 people
ran for someone or something
other than themselves that
day," Milota said. "They ran for
a fallen shipmate, a friend or
family member, a cure, a team,
or loved ones who simply sup-
ported them in training. They
all exemplified The Sullivans'
motto of 'We Stick Together,'
just as Rachel ran for me, I ran
for her and we finished together.
We stuck together."

SURFLANT Hosts Symposium


For Commander Training


By Naval .. Force, U. S. Atlantic
Fleet
Surface Force commanders
from as far away as Korea and
San Diego joined their counter-
parts from Mayport, Ingleside,
Norfolk and New Jersey
at a Commanders Training
Symposium, held at Naval
Amphibious Base Little Creek,
Oct. 28-29.
Rear Adm. D.C. Curtis,
Commander, Naval Surface
Force, Atlantic, hosted the
symposium, which focused
on surface force readiness and
the changes being made to
the force, through the Surface
Warfare Enterprise (SWE), to
increase combat readiness and
deliver Warships Ready for
Tasking.
"The COs (commanding offi-
cers) got to hear directly from
senior Navy leaders, to hold dis-
cussions with those leaders, and
to ask questions about changes
to the Surface Force that are
having a big impact on improv-
ing current readiness."
Adm. James Stavridis,


Ricky's Tour


Commander, U.S. Southern
Command, kicked off the sym-
posium by explaining how Navy
missions in Central and South
America differ from missions in
places like the Persian Gulf. He
stressed that operations in this
theater are more about building
relationships with friends than
providing deterrence or pres-
ence.
"The linkages between
the U.S. and the rest of the
Americas are profound and
important and the Navy is
part of that connecting tissue.
We have more links here than
anywhere else in the world,"
Stavridis said. "It is not
America's back yard; it's part of
a home we share together."
Vice Adm. Terrence Etnyre,
Commander, Naval Surface
Forces, followed with a "view
from the bridge" of the sur-
face force and the SWE. As
SWE Chief Executive Officer,
Etnyre started his discussion
by describing the SWE and
detailing how the organiza-
tion is building a surface force


that "maximizes productivity
to deliver the most warfighting
capability to the fleet."
He also spelled out his pri-
orities for the Surface Forces:
improving current readiness and
delivering "Warships Ready
for Tasking," building a Navy
for the future, and resetting the
force by having a diverse mix
of the right number of people
with the right training in the
right jobs.
The ship commanders' most
frequent contact with the SWE
probably comes through their
interactions with the Class
Squadrons (CLASSRONS),
functional commands stood
up earlier this year to enable
the SWE to improve readi-
ness across an entire class of
ships. Commanders of the frig-
ate, destroyer and amphibious
assault ship CLASSRONS talk-
ed to the attendees and showed
how their organizations have
started improving force readi-
ness by finding solutions to
long-standing or challenging
problems and implementing


processes and practices passed
down from the SWE.
Other briefers included
Rear Adm. Jim McMananon,
director of Naval Sea Systems
Command's "Team Ships,"
an organization focused on
addressing SWE issues at
the NAVSEA level; and Rear
Adm. Gerry Hall, Commander,
Expeditionary Strike Group
Two, who came to the confer-
ence with the latest information
about maritime security opera-
tions in the Persian Gulf, and
why those operations are impor-
tant to national security.
Several commanders brought
their spouses to the Spouses
Conference, where Mrs. Ingrid
Etnyre and Mrs. Towanda
Curtis led them through brief-
ings and discussions on a
variety of subjects, including
military etiquette and protocol,
legal requirements for the CO's
spouse, and ombudsman train-
ing.

Don't Be
From National Fire Protection Associa-
tion
Thanksgiving is the peak
day for home cooking fires and
the National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) is urg-
ing the public to keep safety in
mind when preparing holiday
meals.
Cooking fires are more like-
ly to happen on Thanksgiving
than any other day of the year.
In 2005, cooking fires were
involved in roughly 1,300
reported home structure fires
on Thanksgiving that's almost
three times the daily average.
NFPA studies show cooking
fires are the number one cause
of home fires and home fire
injuries. Hundreds of Americans
are killed each year due to home
cooking fires and thousands
more are injured. Annually,
cooking fires cause more than
half a billion dollars in direct
property damage to homes and
the belongings inside.
It can be easy to get wrapped
up in entertaining guests, but
it is important to remember to
monitor meal preparation close-
ly as most cooking fires start
because cooking has been left
unattended.
NFPA offers these tips for
safer cooking:
Stay in the kitchen when you
are frying, grilling, or broil-


Statistic
ing food. If you must leave the
home for even a short period
of time, turn off the stove or
oven. If you are simmering,
baking, boiling or roasting food,
check it regularly and remain in
the home while food is cook-
ing. Use a timer to remind you
that the stove or oven is on.
Stay alert. Don't cook if you
are sleepy, have been drinking
alcohol or have taken medicine
that makes you drowsy. Keep
things that burn pot holders,
oven mitts, paper or plastic -
off your stovetop. Don't store
things that can burn in an oven,
microwave, or toaster oven.
Clean food and grease off
burners, stovetops and ovens.
Wear clothing with sleeves that
are short, close fitting, or tightly
rolled up. Keep kids away from
cooking areas by enforcing a
"kid-free zone" of three feet (1
meter) around the stove. Use
the stove's back burners when-
ever possible, and turn pot han-
dles inward to reduce the risk
that pots with hot contents will
be knocked over. Never hold a
small child while cooking.

Sea-based Multiple-Missile Defense


'Hit to Kill' Intercept Achieved


From Missile Defense Agency
Missile Defense Agency
(MDA) announced the success-
ful completion, Nov. 7, of a
multiple simultaneous engage-
ment involving two ballistic
missile targets.
Air Force Lt. Gen. Henry
'Trey" Obering, director of
MDA said that this was MDA's
latest "hit to kill" intercept
flight test conducted jointly
with the U.S. Navy off the coast
of Kauai.
For the first time, the opera-
tionally realistic test involved
two unitary "non-separating"
targets, meaning that the tar-
get's warheads did not separate
from their booster rockets. This
was the 32nd and 33rd success-
ful "hit-to-kill" intercepts since
2001.
Designated as Flight Test
Standard Missile-13 (FTM-13),
it marked the 10th and llth


successful intercepts, of 13 tar-
gets in 12 scheduled flight tests
for the Aegis Ballistic Missile
Defense (BMD) Program, a
sea-based component of the
Agency's Ballistic Missile
Defense System (BMDS).
Aegis BMD is designed to
intercept and destroy short to
intermediate-range ballistic
missile threats. The mission
was completed by the cruiser
USS Lake Erie (CG 70), using
the tactically certified 3.6 Aegis
Ballistic Missile Defense ship-
board weapon system and the
Standard Missile-3 (SM-3)
Block IA interceptor.
At approximately 6:12
p.m. Hawaii Standard Time
(11:12 p.m. EST), a target
was launched from the Pacific
Missile Range Facility (PMRF),
Barking Sands, Kauai, Hawaii.
Moments later, a second, identi-
cal target was launched from the


PMRF. The Lake Erie's Aegis
BMD Weapon System detect-
ed and tracked the targets and
developed fire control solutions.
Approximately two min-
utes later, the Lake Erie's crew
fired two SM-3 missiles, and
two minutes later they success-
fully intercepted the targets
outside the earth's atmosphere
more than 100 miles above the
Pacific Ocean and 250 miles
northwest of Kauai. The inter-
cepts used "hit to kill" technol-
ogy, meaning that the targets
were destroyed when the mis-
siles collided directly with the
targets.
A Japanese destroyer also
participated in the flight test.
Stationed off Kauai and
equipped with the certified 3.6
Aegis BMD weapon system,
the guided missile destroyer JS
Kongo (DDG 173) performed
long-range surveillance and


tracking exercises.
The Kongo used the test as
a training exercise in prepara-
tion for the first ballistic missile
intercept test by a Japanese ship
planned for later this year. This
event marked the fourth time an
allied military unit participated
in a U.S. Aegis BMDS test.
MDA and the Navy coopera-
tively manage the Aegis BMD
Program. Lockheed Martin
Maritime Systems and Sensors
of Moorestown, New Jersey is
the Combat System Engineering
Agent and prime contractor
for the Aegis BMD Weapon
System and Vertical Launch
System installed in Aegis-
equipped cruisers and destroy-
ers. Raytheon Missile Systems
of Tucson, Arizona is the prime
contractor for the SM-3 mis-
sile and all previous variants of
Standard Missile.

Navy Strike Groups Exercise Capabilities In Region


From U.S. Naval Forces Central Com-
mand/U.S. 5th Fleet Public. ;
United States naval forces
assigned to Commander, U.S.
5th Fleet, will begin several
exercises in the Persian Gulf
during November to demon-
strate a wide range of capa-
bilities, including humanitar-
ian assistance and disaster relief
assistance.
Contingency planning helps
prepare forces for real-world
events that can happen unex-
pectedly. USS Wasp (LHD 1)
began a crisis response exercise
Nov. 1, involving amphibious,
air and medical forces in the
Persian Gulf.
Commander Task Force
(CTF) 59 is leading the exer-
cise, focusing on furthering the
region's humanitarian and disas-
ter response capability.
"The scenario is challeng-
ing but prepares us for a real-
world event," said Cmdr. Jay
Chambers, CTF 59 plans officer.


"From the table-top discussions,
which drew up plans for how
our forces will assist, to turn-
ing those plans into action, this
exercise allowed us to examine
the best way to proceed, and to
proceed quickly, with provid-
ing assistance to any requesting
nation."
The exercise is designed
to practice and evaluate the
ships' ability to serve as "first
responders" after a natural
disaster. The five-day training
exercise ensures 5th Fleet is
capable of responding to any
crisis in this region and is part
of United States commitment to
the people of the region.
"The purpose of the exercise
is to continually improve the
5th Fleet skills in completing
complex missions that require
capabilities broader than one
ship or unit," said Vice Adm.
Kevin Cosgriff, commander,
U.S. 5th Fleet.


This exercise tests the abil-
ity to rapidly flow personnel
and supplies from the sea to an
affected area within the first
72 hours, similar to U.S. Navy
assistance for natural disasters
during the Indonesia tsunami,
relief efforts for the Pakistan
earthquake, and most recently
the volcano eruption in Yemen.
Crisis response exercises
also develop the capabilities of
military personnel to respond
to hazards affecting maritime
infrastructure. For instance,
a problem on an oil platform
could cause an oil spill that, if
not contained, could cause fol-
low-on problems to the environ-
ment or other infrastructures.
An important part of this
exercise will be to test oil spill
response capabilities, which
will involve a spill response and
initial clean-up.
In addition to the Wasp
training, Enterprise Carrier


Strike Group and Kearsarge
Expeditionary Strike Group
are also operating and training
in the region. Multiple strike
groups are capable of executing
a broad range of operations.
"Naval forces deployed here
contribute to building stronger
relationships that in turn help


underwrite security and stabil-
ity," said Cosgriff. "Counter
piracy operations off the coast
of Somalia demonstrate our
commitment to keeping sea
lanes open for legitimate com-
merce and shipping."
Commander, U.S. 5th Fleet
area of operations encompass-


es about 2.5 million square
miles of water and includes
the Persian Gulf, Arabian Sea,
Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Gulf of
Oman and parts of the Indian
Ocean. This expanse includes
three critical waterways: Suez
Canal, Strait of Hormuz and
Strait of Bab al Mandeb.

MCPON Leadership Mess Examines Key Issues


By MCC Rhonda Burke
Navy Region Midwest Public. --
Master Chief Petty Officer of
the Navy (MCPON)(SW/FMF)
Joe R. Campa Jr., asked mem-
bers of his MCPON Leadership
Mess Working Group to look at
four key issues facing Sailors
during a two-day "roll-up
your sleeves" session at Naval
Station Great Lakes, Nov. 8-9.
The MCPON Leadership
Mess Working Group consists
of the fleet and force master
chiefs as well as various com-
mand master chiefs serving on
flag officer staffs. The senior
leaders broke into four working
groups to discuss: improving
the individual augmentee (IA)
process, the surface and air war-
fare programs, defining the role
of the first class petty officer
and the chief petty officer's role
in family support.
"I have very high expectations
of the group and have asked
them to look at each of these
issues with an eye toward how
to improve these processes and
do the work of the Navy better,"
Campa said. "The chief's mess
is a very flat organization with
lots of voices and experiences
to be shared."
Campa said there is much
value in the senior enlisted lead-
ers drawing on their individual
experiences in these discussions
and making recommendations
for setting the course and devel-
oping Sailors.
IA process
Campa asked the working
group to look at the issue of IA
assignments and how to best
support Sailors and their fami-
lies while examining the gaps in
the process and where the Navy,
can do better in achieving the
IA mission, while supporting
Sailors and their families.
Currently about 6,000 Sailors
are serving in IA positions, a
number Campa does not expect
to change in the near future.
What will change is the detail-
ing process for IA assignments.
The Global war on terrorism
(GWOT) Support Assignment
(GSA) detailing system will

Navy (MCPON) Joe R. Campa Jr. visiting with Sailors during a
recent visit to Iraq.


provide Sailors and their fami-
lies greater predictability in
IA assignments as Sailors will
negotiate the assignments as
part of Permanent Change of
Station (PCS) orders.
The GSA system launched
phase 1 this summer, with 27
percent of the total GSA vali-
dated and uploaded. Phase 2,
which will bring 73 percent of
all GWOT support assignments
under the new process, begins
in January 2008.
"The new detailing process is
a logical move. We have been
in the IA business for a while
now and there is predictability
in many of the assignments,"
Campa said.
Detailing IAs as part of the
PCS process will allow Sailors
to make career decisions about
serving as an IA and also create
more consistent manpower for
shore-based commands, which
have been tasked with filling
the IA requirements.
Currently there are two pillars
of support for Sailors serving
in an IA capacity; their parent
command and the Expeditionary
Combat Readiness Center,


whose mission is to support
Sailors deploying for non-tradi-
tional expeditionary missions in
support of GWOT.
The working group is exam-
ining the level of support from
these two pillars and is making
recommendations on continuous
process improvement, designed
to ensure Sailors and their fami-
lies are well supported.
Under the GSA detailing pro-
cess, a Sailor's detaching com-
mand will remain his parent
command for support purposes.
"IAs bring a capability to the
fight that is highly valued across
the AOR (area of responsibil-
ity)," Campa said.


While the requirement for
IAs will not diminish in the
near future, Campa doesn't
foresee all Sailors serving in
such a capacity. He believes the
new detailing process will give
many Sailors an opportunity to
choose such an assignment in
a way that compliments their
career goals.
"Sailors who have an oppor-
tunity to serve in an IA learn a
great deal about working in a
joint environment and building
relations with other branches of
the service," Campa said.
ESWS/EAWS
A second topic being tack-
led by the working groups is a
review of the Enlisted Surface
Warfare Specialist (ESWS) and
Enlisted Air Warfare Specialist
(EAWS) programs.
"I am asking them to look
at the programs, what we are
doing well and what can be
improved," Campa said. His
desire is that the senior enlist-
ed leaders will discuss how
the programs are managed on
board various platforms; lessons
learned and engage in a discus-
sion about the mandates of the
programs and validity.
Campa believes chief petty
officers have a responsibility
to Sailors to ensure these pro-
grams are strong, viable and
foster professional development
and growth.
Role of the First Class Petty
Officer
Campa, a vocal advocate of
deckplate leadership, also asked
the working group to examine
the role of the first class petty
officer and define expectations.

"Traditionally the chief and
the division officer have been
that deckplate team that brings
leadership to the division,"
Campa said. "I want to take a
close look at the chief's role
with the first class petty offi-
cers, and what the expectations
are."
MCPON believes first class
petty officers should be Sailors
the Navy can tap into for leader-
ship skills and that they should
expect to lead other junior
Sailors. He has asked the work-
ing group to look beyond the
role of the leading petty officer
to define the expectations of all
first class petty officers and par-
ticularly what leadership skills
should be expected of them
serving in the paygrade.
"All Sailors need to feel like
they are making a difference,"
Campa said, adding that he
wants to "define expectations of
the first class petty officer" and
then guide Sailors in meeting
those goals.
Family Support
The fourth topic MCPON
asked his working group to
examine is the chief petty offi-
cer's role in family support.
"We are asking and will con-
tinue to ask more and more of
our Sailors and their families,"
Campa said, explaining there is
a direct impact on families from
deployments, IA assignments
and other demands associated
with Navy life.
"Families are proud of their
service, too," Campa said.
"I was just on board [USS]
Enterprise, which is deployed to
the 5th Fleet; the newly-pinned


chiefs shared comments about
how their spouses had written
to them about the pride they felt
in their earning their anchors. It
is a team effort."
Campa believes chief petty
officers have a responsibil-
ity not just to their Sailors but
also to their Sailor's families
to ensure they are taken care of
and kept informed.
Campa added that family sup-
port carries with it a responsibil-
ity on the part of every Sailor.
"Chiefs need to hold our
Sailors responsible for the
responsibilities they have to
their families," Campa said.
The MCPON Leadership
Working Group generally meets
twice yearly to address issues
facing Sailors around the fleet.
MCPON chose to hold this
panel at Naval Station, Great
Lakes in part so the senior
enlisted leaders would have an
opportunity to see Sailors in
training.
The working group also vis-
ited USS Trayer and Battle
Stations 21, the Navy's newest
Arleigh Burke Class destroy-
er simulator and trainer where
Recruit divisions solve ship-
board problems in a grueling
12-hour experience. Battle
Stations 21 is a comprehensive
test of the skills and teamwork
learned during their eight weeks
of basic training at Recruit
Training Command.
"Great Lakes is a great place
to be, it is the quarterdeck of the
Navy," Campa said.

Remember Food Safety


By Kay Blakley
DeCA
Sharing holiday meals with
friends and family is an impor-
tant part of the holiday season.
Do partake of the season's mer-
riment, but don't invite food
poisoning to join the party by
using careless food-handling
practices. With a little bit of
care and knowledge, foodborne
illness is almost entirely pre-
ventable. Consider these four
tips:
Cook thoroughly: If a gold-
en-brown, whole turkey will
be the centerpiece of your holi-
day table, a meat thermometer
should be among your "must-
have" kitchen utensils. It's the
only sure way to tell if food
has reached the desired state
of doneness and a temperature
high enough to destroy harmful
bacteria. Use an oven tempera-
ture no lower than 325 degrees
Fahrenheit and continue to roast
until the thermometer shows a
minimum internal temperature
of 165 degrees. This is the low-
est temperature at which bac-
teria and viruses are destroyed,
according to food safety experts.
However, for reasons of person-
al preference, consumers may
choose to cook turkey to the tra-
ditional temperature levels of
175 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit
in the thigh and 165 to 170 in
the breast. Check the tempera-
ture in the innermost part of the
thigh and wing and in the thick-
est part of the breast. Make sure
the thermometer is not touching
bone, fat or gristle. For safety
sake, it is best not to stuff the
turkey, but to bake the stuff-


ing separately in a casserole.
If you simply must cook the
stuffing inside the bird, check
the stuffing temperature sepa-
rately. Even if the turkey itself
has reached the desired temper-
ature, cooking must continue
until the center of the stuffing
has reached 165 degrees.
Keep it clean: Wash your
hands, including under your fin-
gernails, thoroughly and often
with soap and water. Remember
that bacteria can enter the pic-
ture from numerous sources-
handling the telephone, petting
the dog, taking a bathroom
break, wiping the baby's runny
nose or brushing her hair out
of her face, even handling dirty
dishes. Wash up again after
any of these or other interrup-
tions, and dry hands thorough-
ly with a clean towel or paper
towel. Change kitchen towels,
sponges and dish cloths often.
Bacteria can linger on linen
used repeatedly between laun-
derings. Always launder these
items in hot water, because the
cold water wash may not kill
all the bacteria. Use paper tow-
els to wipe counters and floor
spills. Wash countertops, cutting
boards and utensils in hot soapy
water between each step in food
preparation. Be sure dishes are
fully clean and dry before put-
ting them away. Even tiny bits
of food soil along with moisture
trapped between the dishes sets
up a perfect environment for
bacteria to grow.
Separate raw and cooked
foods: Experts agree that acci-
dental food-to-food or surface-
to-food cross contamination is


one of the biggest culprits in the
spread of foodborne illness. For
example, say some juice from
your thawed turkey seeps onto
the countertop or onto your cut-
ting board. You wipe up the spill
with a paper towel, then cut let-
tuce and other vegetables on the
same contaminated countertop
and cutting board. Although the
surface may look clean, bacteria
from the poultry may still be
present-and may have trans-
ferred to the salad makings.
Your friends and family eat the
salad and now run the risk of
becoming ill.
Even more common is the
following scenario. You pre-
pare the turkey for roasting by
removing the giblets and neck
from inside the bird. You rub
the inside cavity with salt, using
your fingers and generously
apply butter to the outside of
the bird with, you guessed it,
your bare hands! (We'll assume
your hands and nails have been
thoroughly scrubbed before-
hand.) You lift the turkey into
the roasting pan, wiping your
hands on the kitchen towel sev-
eral times throughout the pro-
cess. You use that same towel
to open the oven door and slide
the turkey in. The pan of pota-
toes on top of the stove starts to
boil over, so you use the towel
as a potholder to lift the lid. As
you turn down the heat with
one hand, you pick up a spoon
with the other hand, and give
the pot a good stir. As you stir,
you notice the yeast rolls set
to rise on the back of the stove
look a little dry, so you dampen
the notorious towel with a little


During I
water from the faucet, and care-
fully lay it over the rolls. We
could carry this on and on, but
by now I'm sure you have the
picture. You've contaminated
half the kitchen by transferring
any microscopic beings residing
on or in the turkey, first to your
hands, then to the towel and
finally to the numerous other
items you touched. We won't
even mention the fire hazard
you've created with the flam-
mable towel so close to the heat
of the stove.
Be aware of cross-contami-
nation possibilities every step
of the way, beginning in your
grocery basket, continuing to
your meat or poultry thawing in
the refrigerator and all the way
through the meal preparation
process. Wash hands and uten-
sils often with soap and water.
Use paper towels and dispose of
them immediately after handling
raw meat or poultry, and change
cloth kitchen towels often.
Refrigerate, thaw, serve and
store foods properly. Keep hot
foods hot and cold foods cold:
No doubt you've heard this at
least a hundred times, but good
advice bears repeating. Follow
these guidelines to assure food
safety when preparing the holi-
day feast.
Thaw the turkey completely
before cooking. Thawing in the
refrigerator is best, but requires
some planning-allow a mini-
mum of five hours per pound
thawing time. If planning failed,
do a quick thaw by placing the
turkey, in its original wrapper,
in cold water. Allow 30 min-
utes per pound for thawing to


Holiday
take place and change the water
every 25 to 30 minutes.
Egg-based desserts such as
pumpkin, pecan or sweet potato
pie can be made a day ahead,
but must be stored in the refrig-
erator.
Cornbread dressing can be
partially prepared a day ahead,
as long as you refrigerate the
ingredients separately-bread-
crumbs and crumbled cornbread
in one container, saut6ed onions
and celery in another and crisp
crumbled bacon in yet another.
Combine all ingredients with
eggs, seasonings and broth the
next day. Bake and serve imme-
diately.
Even deviled eggs can be
made ahead following these
safety precautions. Boil, peel
and slice the eggs lengthwise.
Refrigerate the egg whites in
one container and the yolks in
a separate container. Three to


Season
four hours before mealtime,
mash the yolks with a fork and
combine with mayonnaise and
seasonings. Fill the egg whites
with the yolk mixture and chill
till serving time.
If serving buffet style, keep
foods warm with chafing dishes
or warming trays. Cold foods
should be kept on ice, if pos-
sible.
Cover and refrigerate left-
overs within two hours of serv-
ing.
Store leftover meats or poul-
try in their own separate con-
tainers. Do not combine with
other items such as gravy, dress-
ing or vegetables in the same
container.
Use leftovers in a timely fash-
ion. For most items this means
within one to three days.

DoD Looking For


From TRICARE
Every 15 minutes someone in
the United States is diagnosed
with a medical condition that
requires treatment with bone
marrow or a blood stem cell
transplant. Every day more than
6,000 men, women and chil-
dren around the world search
the National Donor Program
Registry for a life-saving donor.
Thousands of lives are lost
because a match is never found.
"Each year more than 35,000
people in the United States are
diagnosed with leukemia, lym-
phoma, aplastic anemia (mar-
row failure), and other life-
threatening blood disorders.
Seventy-five percent of patients
in need of a marrow transplant
cannot find a match within their
own family," said Army Major
General (MG) Elder Granger,
Deputy Director, TRICARE
Management Activity.
November is National
Marrow Awareness Month,
and The C.W. Bill Young/
Department of Defense (DoD)
Marrow Donor Program,
named for Congressman C.W.
Bill Young who initiated and
supported its development, is
working hard to provide hope
and help to patients waiting to
find a marrow donor. The C.W.
Young Donor Program is only
for Military donors.
The C.W. Young Program
works in conjunction with
the National Marrow Donor
Program (NMDP) which brings
donors together, within the U.S.


and from across the world, in
a confidential and secure data
search system. "Humanitarian
support is a part of our commit-
ment and Uniformed Service
members can help save lives by
enrolling in the National Donor
Program Registry," said MG
Granger.
In addition to the NMDP in
the U.S., there are numerous
organizations around the world
that share this database, work-
ing together to find matches
for any individual requiring a
transplant. Since the creation of
the NMDP in 1986, more than
six million Americans, includ-
ing more than 400,000 Service
members, have registered as
marrow donors.
Hundreds of marrow donor
drives are conducted on
Military installations and ships
each year. In addition, The
C.W. Bill Young/DoD Marrow
Donor Program, in cooperation
with participating commands,
has established "walk-in" reg-
istration programs for eligible
personnel who wish to join the
DoD Marrow Donor Program
Registry.
Joining the registry is almost
effortless and completely pain-
less. Participants fill out a short
two-page DoD consent form
and a swab is taken from inside
their mouth. Potential donors
receive an official card signify-
ing they have registered as a
bone marrow donor. They are
added to the NMDP National
Registry through the DoD


Don't Get Stuck


From TRICARE
When a TRICARE beneficia-
ry needs hospital care, he or she
can usually be confident that the
benefit will cover everything
involved with inpatient care.
Doctors may order lab tests,
X-rays, or medication. And
afterwards, they may call for
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
(MRI). But wait, too much
confidence could mean that the
patient ends up paying for that
MRI. Why?
Because in some cases,
TRICARE beneficiaries need
preauthorization to get the
health care their doctors rec-
ommend. Those who are in
TRICARE should ask their
regional contractors about the
specific medical care being
considering before schedul-
ing an appointment to be sure
TRICARE coverage will apply.
TRICARE beneficiaries
may need preauthorization for
any procedure that is not rou-
tine, and such things aren't
always obvious. For example,
TRICARE now covers anesthe-
sia services and associated costs
for dental treatment for ben-
gficiaries with developmental,


mental, or physical disabilities,
and children age five or under.
This is a valuable new benefit,
but it's not routine and requires
preauthorization.
Standard beneficiaries in
particular may forget to seek
preauthorization because they
are used to self-referral. They
book their own appointments
with primary care providers
and specialists. There is no all-
inclusive list of procedures that
call for preauthorization, how-
ever some common examples
include MRIs, adjunctive dental
care, some medications, home
health care and inpatient admis-
sions for substance abuse or
behavioral health. Each region
has its own requirements, so
services that need preauthoriza-
tion in one region, may not in
another.
If beneficiaries have other
health insurance they need to
follow the rules of the other
plan. To verify if preauthoriza-
tion is necessary, beneficiaries
may contact their regional con-
tractors: North Region: 1-877-
TRICARE (1-877-874-2273);
South Region: 1-800-444-5445;
West Region: 1-888-874-9378.


or someone on dialysis or dia-
betic, living with someone who
has tubes going into their body
(especially a catheter) or have
any hardware (metal implants),
artificial joint, pacemaker,
screws, plates, and living with
an intravenous drug user.
How do I know if I have
MRSA? Typically, infections
by MRSA-CA enter your body
through a cut in the skin, fol-
lowed by swelling like a "big
pimple" or an abscess or have
drainage at the infection site,
cause pain, redness and warm
skin around the infection site.
On occasions it may elevate
body temperature (fever) and
cause fatigue, nausea and vom-
iting. If you are being treated
for an infection and your infec-
tion is not responding to the
medication, notify your health-
care provider. The only posi-
tive determination of a MRSA
infection is through laboratory
culture ordered by your health-
care provider.
How do I keep from get-
ting MRSA? If you acquire
a bacterial infection, treat it
with an antibiotic prescribed by
a healthcare provider and take
exactly as prescribed for the
entire duration. Even if you are
feeling better, do not stop tak-
ing your prescribed antibiotic
until the course of therapy is
complete. Keep all cuts clean
and covered until fully healed.


a Marrow
Marrow Donor Program. To
be eligible to join the registry
through the DoD program you
must be:
*Age 18 to 60 and in good
health
*Active Duty Military, Coast
Guard, National Guard or
Reservist


Wash your hands thoroughly
and often, especially after each
bathroom use, before touch-
ing food, and after sneezing or
coughing. Wash your hands
with soap and warm water for at
least 15-20 seconds, and don't
forget to cover the back of the
hands and rinse thoroughly. If
soap and water are not avail-
able, waterless soap or hand
sanitizer would be a suitable
substitute.
Should you have any ques-
tions with regards to MRSA,
please feel free to contact your
Primary Care Manager (PCM).
Tips to help prevent the
spread of infection
(From NBHC Kings Bay)
*Wash hands with soap and
warm water
*Keep cuts and scrapes clean
with soap and water
*Avoid skin contact and shar-
ing personal items with people
suspected of being infected
*Clean athletic equipment that
is shared with other people
*If you think that you have a
skin infection, consult your doc-
tor or healthcare provider. Early
treatment will prevent the infec-
tion from getting worse. If you
are told that you have MRSA:
*Keep the infected area clean
and covered with dry bandages,
dispose of bandages properly
*Wash hands frequently with
soap and warm water
*Clean your bathroom, kitch-


Donors
*Immediate family member of
an Active Duty Service Member
*A DoD civilian employee

en, etc. regularly
*Wash clothes with hot water/
bleach and dry using hot dryer
*Inform any healthcare pro-
vider that you seek for treat-
ment that you have a MRSA
infection
*The best prevention against
the spread of MRSA infections
is good personal hygiene.
Good Housekeeping in the
Barracks
*The following recommen-
dations should be implemented
in sailors quarters and among
shipmates to contain the spread
of MRSA infections:
*All common-use surfaces
in the barracks or berthing area
need to be disinfected daily
with a general purpose disin-
fectant. A general cleaner only
removes dirt, and will not kill
gennrms. *Therefore, a disinfec-
tant must be used.
*Some examples of good dis-
infectants are:
Pine Oil Disinfectant
Lysol Disinfectant
Bleach/water in a 1:100 dilu-
tion (one tablespoon per quart
of water)
Common use surfaces include
door knobs, sinks, shower stalls,
faucets, phone receivers, games,


television controls.
Good Personal Hygiene
Among Sailors
*WASH YOUR HANDS use
soap and water and friction for
15 seconds to really clean your
hands. Wash often, but especial-
ly after going to the rest room,
and before eating.
*Keep a bottle of hand sani-
tizer with you to use when soap
and water is not available.
*Shower every day with a
good antibacterial soap. Dry
your skin thoroughly after the
shower. *Bacteria grow and
multiply on warm, moist sur-
faces.
*Launder your clothes on a
regular basis. Wet, dirty cloth-
ing can cause skin irritation and
increase the risk of infection.
*Also important is remember-
ing to be selfish with your per-
sonal items DO NOT SHARE
linens and razors, or any other
personal items.
*Do not share bar soap. If
possible, does not use bar soap.
For more information, contact
your healthcare provider or call
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention at 800-CDC-

Final Multiple Scores Increase

For Sailors With Degrees


By Ed Barker
Naval Education and Training Com-
mand Public. ; -
Recognizing the importance
of a strong educational foun-
dation for career progression,
Vice Adm. John C. Harvey Jr.,
Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP)
announced on Nov. 8 the intro-
duction of education points into
the E4-E6 Final Multiple Score
(FMS) for advancement.
Beginning with advancement
cycles in August 2008, E3-E5
Sailors will be awarded two
points for an accredited asso-
ciate degree, and four points
for an accredited baccalaureate
degree. For those going before
the E7-E9 selection board,
education will be recognized
by including an emphasis on
education in the selection board
precepts.
"The implementation of
these points towards advance-
ment for E-4 through E-6 and
in the precept language for E-
7 to E-9 selection, reflects the
importance the Navy places on
education," said Harvey. "As
the Navy continues to develop
highly-technical capabilities,
Sailors will be called on to per-
form in new and challenging
ways. Adapting to these chal-
lenges requires leaders that have
strong educational foundations,
both professionally and person-
ally."
Documentation is required
for degree completion to count
towards advancement. Official
transcripts that indicate proof
of degree completion must
come directly from the degree
granting institution to the Navy
College Center in Pensacola,
Fla.
Sailors eligible for advance-
ment to E4-E6 must ensure
official transcripts are received
by the NCC no later than the
first of the month in which their
advancement exam takes place.
Transcripts for Sailors com-
peting for advancement to E-
7 to E-9 must be received by
the Navy College Center by the
cut-off dates specified in the
corresponding selection board
NAVADMIN.
"It's always been important
to document education in your
records," said Cmdr. Sharon
Bemis, Naval Education and
Training Command (NETC)
Voluntary Education Program
Manager. "CNP's announce-
ment makes documentation
even more crucial. This new
policy should give Sailors a
greater incentive to validate all
of their education records and
ensure they have the highest
FMS possible toward advance-
ment."
To assist Sailors in pursing
a degree, the Navy has devel-
oped an education roadmap
that is available through Navy
Knowledge Online (NKO).


Sailors using the roadmap will
first verify their existing aca-
demic transcripts contained in
their Electronic Training Jacket
on NKO. This information is
compiled from the individ-
ual's Sailor/Marine American
Council on Education Registry
Transcript.
Once this information has
been verified, Sailors can
consult with their local Navy
College Officer or the Navy
College Center to develop their
specific education plan.
"Taking advantage of Navy
Voluntary Education opportu-
nities is now more important
than ever," said Master Chief
Electrician's Mate (SW) Tom
Smith, Enlisted Education
Coordinator for NETC. "There
are numerous programs in place
that allow Sailors, whether
deployed or on shore, to work
toward their degree, and get
those advancement points."
The Navy's educational ini-
tiatives are designed to sup-
port a continuum of learning
and development throughout a
Sailor's career, including dis-
tance learning available in mul-
tiple formats almost anywhere
around the globe.
Under the Navy College
Program, several opportunities
are available that give Sailors a
head-start in earning their col-
lege degree. A visit to the local
NCO is a logical first step to
learn about the wide variety
of college level examinations
available, such as the Defense
Activity for Non-Traditional
Education Support (DANTES)
Examination Program, the
College Level Examination
Program and the DANTES
Subject Standardized Tests pro-
gram.
In these programs and oth-
ers, Sailors can take tests in a
variety of subjects and receive
recommended college credit
for each test successfully com-
pleted. There are also several
college admission tests given
through the NCOs, includ-
ing the Scholastic Assessment
Test, and the American College
Test assessment program. The
Graduate Record Exam may be
taken at certain testing sites off-
base and DANTES will reim-
burse the Sailor for the cost of
the test. The Sailor must per-
sonally fund the test administra-
tion fee.
There is a great chance for
Sailors to earn college credit for
things they already do in their
job. Rating-relevant degrees
are offered and supported by
the Navy College Program
Distance Learning Partnerships
(NCPDLP), as part of the
Service members Opportunity
College (SOC).
NCPDLP degrees maximize
acceptance college credit rec-
ommended for Navy Training


and experience as well as credit
by examination, and offer dis-
tance learning opportunities
to complete the remainder of
degree requirements.
The Tuition Assistance (TA)
program is one of the Navy's
most popular educational assis-
tance programs. Through TA,
Sailors can apply for financial
support to help them complete
their college degree.
The Navy funds 100 percent
of tuition and mandatory course
fees (max of $250 per semes-
ter hour) for up to 16 semester
hours per fiscal year. The $250
per semester hour (or semes-
ter hour equivalent) payment
applies only to tuition and man-
datory course fees related to
course enrollment. TA does not
cover books or other expenses,
and this policy applies to all pay
grades.
Another Navy College
Program designed to help
Sailors continue their education
while on sea-duty assignments
is the Navy College Program
for Afloat College Education
(NCPACE).
All NCPACE college cours-
es are provided by accredited
colleges and universities, and
both undergraduate and gradu-
ate level courses are available.
NCPACE courses are funded
by the Navy with the individual
Sailor only paying for books.
For additional information on
advanced education programs,
the best place to start is the local
Navy College Office or online

DIRECT TO CONSUMER


AUTOMOTIVE DISCOUNT RETAILER


DEBUTS IN JACKSONVILLE,


FLORIDA MARKET
Innovative used vehicle clearinghouse is the first of its kind in Florida.


Auction Direct USA Inc has announced it
will open its first dealership in Jacksonville,
Florida this November. The business, the
first of its kind in America, will allow
consumers to purchase a large selection of
pre-owned cars, trucks, vans and SUV's at
our reserve price plus a flat $399.00.

"These are all top shelf, prime vehicles that will
be available through our facility" says John
Iannone, Chief Executive Officer of
Auction Direct USA. Vehicles will be on a
first come first served basis and consumers
can purchase them before we make them
available to be auctioned.

We are committed to pricing that is typi-
cally $2,000 to $5,000 LESS than traditional
retailers. The public can now purchase any
vehicle for the auction reserve price plus
an additional flat $399. For instance each
vehicle sold at Auction Direct USA comes
with a three day 500 mile money back
guarantee and can be purchased with an
extended warranty. In addition our opera-
tion will allow consumers to trade in their
existing vehicles toward their purchases
and we will even offer a full array of financ-
ing options.

The corporation, which plans to launch
franchises nationwide, has selected Jackson-
ville as its first location in Florida because
of its huge population growth within the
past several years. The Jacksonville market
ranks number one in America's fifty hottest
cities for manufacturing expansions and
relocations according to Expansion Mag-
azine. Another compelling reason bringing
Auction Direct USA to North Florida; Jack-
sonville ranks 36th in the nation with over


6.8 billion dollars in motor vehicle sales.
The auction center, which will be located
in a newly renovated 37,000 square foot
building, is located at 6400 Blanding
Boulevard just north of 1-295.

"Auction Direct USA visited 20 cities and
decided to make Jacksonville the third location
for its national expansion" says CEO John
lannone. John lannone has worked for two
decades in the automotive community.
lannone and other partners in Auction
Direct USA promise to revolutionize the
used car buying process here and across
the United States. They have established
a buying group consisting of over a dozen
large national auction houses. Only the best
vehicles are selected to be sold daily at
Auction Direct USA. Consumers can view,
test drive and purchase the various vehicles
at the Jacksonville location just like at any
other car dealership.

Auction Direct USA will have one of this
areas largest and best selections of quality
pre-owned vehicles including up to 2007
models. The entire inventory of available
vehicles can be searched at its website
which is auctiondirectusa.com. Our website
features at least 30 pictures of each vehicle.
"The time has come to introduce a new genera-
tion of auto sales centers" says lannone. "Just
in the same way that the deep discount retailers
have revolutionized the way consumers can
purchase day to day essential products, Auction
Direct USA plans to do the same with vehi-
cle purchases" Consumers wishing to learn
more about Auction Direct USA can go the
website AUCTIONDIRECTUSA.COM or
