There are few things that
will get a Sailor through an
extended deployment as an
Individual Augmentee (IA) bet-
ter than the support of friends
and family, and the support of
their command. Naval Station
(NS) Mayport's base security
command lives by this idea,
and does everything they can
to support their IA Sailors.
Master-at-Arms 1st class
Brian Lally was the most
recent member of base security
to receive that support. Upon
his arrival to Jacksonville's
International Airport, after a
year of IA duty, Lally was sur-
prised by 38 of his fellow ship-
mates.
"It was an amazing feeling
seeing everybody here," said
Lally. "None of these people
had to be here but they chose
to show up and meet me, we
are more like a family than co-
workers."
"The Navy is a family busi-
ness, shipmate should be
synonymous with family
member," Said Master Chief
Master-at-Arms Ross Cramer,
NS Mayport's base security
Senior Enlisted Advisor.
Cramer has been one of the
driving forces behind base
security's excellent command
support.
"We try to talk to our IA
Sailors once a week, we send
out care packages and keep in
touch through E-mail," said
Cramer. "We also look at the
extended family, making sure
spouses know what's going
on, we compose letters to the
sailors parents as well. It's not

Security Welcomes Home IAs

hard to keep people in touch."
Sailors on IA duty will more
than likely be supplementing
Army forces in places where
no ship would be able to reach.
"I got so much stuff from my
command while I was in Iraq,
packages and gifts, some had
little jokes with them but that's
what made it special, every-
thing I received had a little


touch of the Navy in them,"
said Lally
Lally, who has been in the
Navy for 18 years, has been to
a few commands throughout
his time.
"I am still amazed by the
support I received, from the
very start of my IA to com-
ing home, I have never had so
much support by a command,

it's an amazing feeling," said
Lally.
Command support is an
important aspect of making
Sailors feel up to the job of
being an IA.
"As hard as we expect our
sailors to work while they are
on an IA assignment, it is just
as important that their com-
mand works just as hard for


them," said Cramer.
Lally returned to Mayport for
a few days of rest before going
on leave and flying home to
surprise his family in Boston.
NS Mayport also welcomed
home Master-at-Arms 2nd Class
Jeffrey Watson on Saturday
after he returned from a year-
long IA duty to GTMO work-
ing in detainee operations.


Don't Miss Doc


Appointment


From NH Jacksonville Public,;
There is a big difference
between Naval Branch Health
Clinic (NBHC) Mayport and
civilian sector clinics. Do you
remember what the wait times
out there are like? In many
civilian doctors offices you
might not be seen until 30-45
minutes past your appointment
time. We DO NOT do that!
Why the difference? Some of
our civilian counterparts dou-
ble and, in some cases, triple-
book their appointments in an
effort to reduce the impact of
"no-show" appointments, the
result is longer wait times in
their waiting room. At NBHC
Mayport we realize your time is
very valuable and therefore we
will not double-book appoint-
ments, but there is a trade off
that affects you and in turn
affects our ability to serve you.
That trade off is quite sim-
ply that you MUST keep your
appointments or call in early
enough to cancel or re-sched-


ule!
If an appointment is not can-
celled it reduces our opportu-
nities to help other beneficia-
ries who also have a healthcare
need. This is a double hit to
our system in that we not only
had a time period that went
unused but we also have to
work you into a slot on a future
date that would have gone to
another patient. Both you and
that patient would experience
a delay in care because of your
not showing up or cancelling.
Missed appointments impact
clinic staffing and productiv-
ity. This creates the false per-
ception of a shrinking need for
care by Mayport beneficiaries.
Therefore, staffing and resourc-
es could be reduced by higher
authority. Again, this would
result in longer wait times and
perhaps the inability to provide
service to all our patients effec-
tively. Reductions in healthcare

New Classes


To Help Sailors


Develop Skills


By MC3(SW)
David Danals
Fleet Public. ;- Center, Atlantic
Center for Personal and
Professional Development
(CPPD) and Training Support
Command (TSC) are teaming
up to offer ongoing classes
through which Sailors can
improve their skills while
becoming greater assets to
their commands.
The courses help Sailors from
all paygrades and ratings
develop a variety of skills
needed in the fleet.
"We take our first term
Sailors, E-5 and below,
who are not performing to
the highest standards and
take them through this two-
week course to teach them
some team building and trust
building exercises," said Lt.
Cmdr. Leon Higgins, officer in
charge at CPPD Detachment
Norfolk. "It's been pretty
successful; we've had an 86
percent retention rate with
Sailors that have gone through
the program."
Some of the courses available
include: Bearings class, drug
and alcohol program advisor
and command managed equal
opportunity (CMEO).
Bearings is a two-week course
that focuses on building upon
areas such as self awareness,
professional relationships,
strategies for success and
personal values.
"The Navy changes constantly
and we get Sailors from all
different aspects, and each


one of our courses provide
something different," said
Senior Chief Navy Counselor
(SW/AW/IUSS) Cynthia L.
Reynolds, director of career
counselor course.
Navy leadership recognizes
that equal opportunity is
essential to every command,
and the CMEO course supports
that belief. The course focuses
on techniques and guidelines
that Sailors in leadership
positions can use to ensure
every Sailor is treated fairly.
"The CMEO course is where
we teach more senior Sailors
to go back [to their commands]
and be the equal opportunity
advisor and manage the
opportunity program, and to
be that independent person,
not associated with any
particular division, which
the Sailors [can] come to for
any problems they need [help
with]," said Reynolds.
CPPD and TSC school houses
are teaming up to help Sailors
all across the Navy.
"The most rewarding part
is watching the students
graduate and come up to me
telling me they really enjoyed
this class and that they really
learned something here," said
Aviation Support Equipment
Technician 1st Class (SW/
AW) Daniel Rivers, Equal
Opportunity advisor.
For more information on the
courses available visit www.
nko.navy.mil under personal
development.

Navy Judge Science Creations


By Bill Austin
Staff
Poster boards filled with
detailed science projects filled
the media center at Twin Lakes
Academy Middle School on
Feb. 29, as young minds stood
proudly by to present their work
to visiting judges.
"The students put a lot of
time and effort in their projects,
and seemed to have a good time
showing off their hard work to
the judges," said Kelly Wirfel,
who teaches science at the
school.
Wirfel, a former naval officer,
invited several Navy volunteers
to serve as judges for the fair,
and several showed up to lend
a hand.
"The second I heard about
this opportunity I said sign me
up," said Ensign Rob Leclerc,
who serves on the Mayport-
based USS Halyburton.
Leclerc, Ensign Josh
Kempinski and Lt. Kevin Dean,
also from Halyburton, joined
fellow officers Ensign Jason
Bilbro and Ensign Pat Shouvlin
from USS Doyle to judge the
event.
A wide variety of projects
peppered the media center that
ranged from meticulously cal-
culated comparisons of hitting

strengths of wood and alumi-
num baseball bats to calculating
the effect of wing span on flight
distance.
"I discovered many things
about rust," said Zachary
Damiano, as he explained his
project to the judges. "I got my
idea because my bike started to
rust and I wanted to learn more
about rust and what kinds of


liquids cause it."
At the end of the evening,
the results were tabulated, and
13 finalists will go on to a dis-
trict wide competition in late
February, according the school's
principal Don Nelson. "This sci-
ence fair was a culmination of
more than two months of hard
work, and this project really
meant something to all of the


participants," said Nelson, who
added that the Navy presence
at the science fair brought back
some familiar memories of his
time in the service. Nelson is
a retired Navy lieutenant com-
mander and served at Naval
Station Mayport.
"It was great to see some of
the judges in uniform, the kids
really liked that," said Nelson.

ERAU Grad Degree

Available At Mayport


From ERA U
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
University Worldwide's
Jacksonville Campus is accept-
ing new students for the Master
of Science in Management
degree (MSM) program at the
Naval Station Mayport Teaching
Site. The MSM targets gradu-
ate students who are looking
for a focused management
degree with a more operational
approach than the traditional
MBA.
The MSM program is built
upon a strong management
core curriculum and offers the
opportunity for several areas
of specialization, to include air
transportation management,
integrated logistics, aviation/
aerospace industrial manage-
ment, aviation enterprises in the
global environment, and general
management.
All MSM students will gain
quantitative analytical skills,
a familiarity with formulating
and managing budgets, knowl-
edge of ethical and regulatory
requirements, an understanding


of organizational structure and
a solid grasp of the theory and
practice of good communica-
tions.
"The MSM is an excellent
program for preparing students
to enter the corporate world as
managers. Furthermore, it is
a superb academic credential
from the premier provider of
off-duty education for mem-
bers of the armed forces," said
Arsenio Rehrig, associate direc-
tor of academic support for
Embry-Riddle's Mayport office.
Military tuition assistance
covers nearly 80 percent of the
per-course cost of the program,
while military personnel using
the graduate education voucher
program can expect 100 percent
of the tuition to be paid by the
government.
For further information on
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
University's programs at Naval

Free Tax


Center


Is Open
By Lt.j.g. Jessica Wilcox
RLSO
NS Mayport Voluntary
Income Tax Assistance program
(VITA) tax center is open to
provide free basic tax prepara-
tion services by appointment
only.
The center had a grand open-
ing on Monday at its new loca-
tion in base housing at 707A
Everglades Court.
The VITA Tax Center hours
of operation will be from 8 a.m. -
4:30 p.m., Monday, Wednesday,
and Friday and from 9 a.m.-3:30
p.m., Tuesday and Thursday.
VITA is the only free tax
preparation service on base.
Private tax preparers can charge
$50-$100 or more per return
and can result in Sailors paying
high rates to get their refunds
more quickly. VITA E-files
almost all returns, ensuring fast
refunds. VITA is run entirely
by volunteers who have been
certified by the IRS in basic tax
preparation.
Who is eligible for free tax
preparation through VITA?
*All active-duty service mem-
bers and their dependents
*All retirees and their depen-
dents
*Reservists on active duty for
more than 30 days
*Reservists within 30 days of
demobilization and reservists
involved in pre-mobilization
What to bring to the tax cen-
ter:
*All 2007 W-2's and 1099's
*Copies of Social Security
cards for taxpayers and depen-
dents
*Taxpayer(s) military ID
cards
*Bank account numbers and
routing numbers
*Any other tax records includ-
ing copies of 2006 tax returns if
available
If you do not bring either a
copy of your Social Security
card or a previous year's tax
return, they will not be able to
prepare your return. You must
also have this documentation
for all dependants.
Due to late Congressional
changes, the IRS will not be
processing certain tax returns
until Feb. 11, which will result
in delayed payment to taxpay-
ers.
Couples wishing to file joint
returns should come to the tax
center together. If a spouse is
unavailable, the spouse prepar-
ing the return will need to bring
a Power of Attorney that specif-
ically covers tax filing purpos-
es, or an IRS Power of Attorney
Form 2848 (available at www.
irs.gov)
If you have a complex return
please call ahead and make an
appointment. All taxes are done
by appointment or by walk-in,
which is on a first-come-first-
serve basis.
To get to the tax center take a
right onto Moale Avenue. Then
take first right onto Everglades.
The VITA house is on the right.
For more information or to
make an appointment, please
contact the Tax Center directly
at 249-3795.

About The Kids?, FFSC
Children who witness fam-
ily violence are often forgot-
ten as the unintended victims.
A wide range of child adjust-
ment problems has been found
to be associated with exposure
to domestic violence. Parent's
need to see and understand the
effects of domestic violence
on children as encompassing
behavior, emotion, development
and socialization. Parents need
to understand that there is an
intergenerational cycle of vio-
lence and they may be creat-
ing a legacy for their child of


learned violent behavior. The
purpose of this program is not
to shame parents for events
that have already happen, but
to instill hope that things can
change. The knowledge that the
violence, which many parents
incorrectly believe is unseen
by their children, is negative-
ly impacting their children's
growth and development and
may provide an additional moti-
vator for ending the violence
and seeking intervention.

Want To Become A Teacher?


From FFSC
The Troops to Teachers and Spouses to
Teachers programs are referral and place-
ment assistance services that help eligible
military personnel and spouses begin a new
career as teachers in public schools.
The Troops to Teachers (TTT) program is
available to the following:
*Military personnel who separate from
military service on or after Oct. 1, 1990
with at least six years of active duty, or
*Members of the National Guard and
Selective Reserves with six or more years
of creditable service.
The Spouses to Teachers (STT) pro-
gram is a pilot program in fourteen states:


California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia,
Kansas, Louisiana, Nevada, Nebraska, New
Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina,
Texas, Utah and Virginia. This program
is available to spouses of military per-
sonal on active duty, members of National
Guard, members of Selected Reserves, and
members of the Individual Ready Reserves
recalled to active duty.
The Troops to Teachers and Spouses
to Teachers Programs are not certifica-
tion programs, nor employment services.
Each state has authority over certification
requirements, and usually, each district has
authority over the employment process.
Therefore, each participant must complete


the certification requirements for the state
in which they desire to teach and apply for
jobs as any other teacher. Each state office
provides information regarding certification
requirements, programs leading to certifica-
tion, and assistance in identifying teaching
positions.

inar to learn more about making a success-
ful transition to your next career in teach-
ing! The seminar will be held on Tuesday,
March 4 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Fleet

MCPON Outlines Expectations Of PO1s


By MCCS(SW/AW)
Bill Houlihan
Master ( --Petty Officer of the Navy
Public.
Following up on remarks
he made to the Surface Navy
Association (SNA) National
Symposium on Jan. 15, Master
Chief Petty Officer of the Navy
(MCPON)(SW/FMF) Joe R.
Campa Jr., has specifically out-
lined the expectations of a Navy
first class petty officer.
On Jan. 29, in communication
with the Navy's chiefs mess
through his regular newslet-
ter titled, "To the Deckplates,"


Campa listed those expectations
as: First line leadership, rat-
ing expertise, professionalism,
communication, loyalty, and
heritage. To view the newslet-
ter, visit www.navy.mil/navy-
data/mcpon/Expectations of_
the_P01.pdf.
Over the past several months,
Campa had been stressing the
important role played by first
class petty officers in his dis-
cussions with Sailors around the
Navy. At the same time senior
enlisted leaders from the fleet
were providing their input.


In his remarks to the SNA,
Campa emphasized that the
Navy doesn't have "a single
Sailor to spare," and said that
taking greater advantage of the
leadership talents of the senior
petty officers is critical to Sailor
development in the fleet. He
reemphasized that in the letter.
"As our Navy moves forward,
we must be able to leverage the
leadership and talent that lies
within our first class commu-
nity. The increased demands on
our maritime forces and non-
traditional missions make it


imperative that we strengthen
the leadership that we provide
our Sailors on the deckplate,"
said Campa.
Campa said that formalizing
the expectations is only the first
step. Now it's up to the Navy's
first class mess to use that guid-
ance as a means to evaluate
their own effectiveness as lead-
ers. Critical to this deckplate
initiative will be the involve-
ment of the chief's mess.
"None of these concepts are
new and I would say the great
majority of our first classes are


on board already. Defining clear
expectations provides a struc-
ture our chiefs can train to and
our Sailors can strive for," said
Campa.
Campa deliberately inserted
the phrase "deckplate triad"
into the E\pccJllions of the
First Class Petty Officer" and
said he expects it to become
a reality in the fleet. Under
"Communication," he stated:
"First class petty officers clear-
ly communicate standards to
the Sailors they lead, while con-
sistently keeping the chain of


command informed. The deck-
plate triad of division officer,
chief petty officer and first class
petty officer is only effective
with their input and deckplate
perspective."
Campa told the SNA audience
that the relationship between
the chief and the division offi-
cer has always been strong, and
should remain that way.
"But," he added, "consider
how much more effective that
leadership team could be if it
evolves into a triad to include
first class petty officers."


Navy Demonstrates World's



Most Powerful EMRG
From Office ofNaval Research Public


The Navy's Office of Naval
Research (ONR) successfully
conducted a record-setting fir-
ing of an electromagnetic rail
gun at Naval Surface Warfare
Center, Dahlgren.
An invited audience, including
the Chief of Naval Operations
Adm. Gary Roughead, who wit-
nessed this revolutionary tech-
nology in action.
Roughead noted, "We should
never lose sight of always
looking for the next big thing,
always looking to make our
capability better, more effective
than what anyone else can put
on the battlefield."
He emphasized, "I never ever
want to see a Sailor or Marine
in a fair fight. I always want
them to have the advantage."
ONR's Electromagnetic Rail
Gun (EMRG) program is part
of the Department of the Navy's
Science and Technology invest-
ments, focused on developing
new technologies to support
Navy and Marine Corps war
fighting needs.
ONR has facilitated a key
partnership between lead-
ing scientists and engineers
from Boeing, Charles Stark
Draper Lab, Inc., General
Atomics, Department of Energy
(Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory), U.S. Naval
Academy, Naval Postgraduate
School, Naval Sea Systems
Command (PMS 500), Naval
Surface Warfare Center
- Carderock and Dahlgren
Divisions, the U.S. Army and
United Kingdom.


-U.S. Navy Photo
Photograph taken from a high-speed video camera during a record-setting firing of an electromag-
netic railgun (EMRG) at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren, Va., on Jan. 31, firing at 10.64MJ
(megajoules) with a muzzle velocity of 2520 meters per second. The Office of Naval Research's EMRG
program is part of the Department of the Navy's Science and Tet 1,,hIi ,/ l v investments, focused on
developing new technologies to support Navy and Marine Corps war fighting needs. This photograph
is a frame taken from a high-speed video camera.


"We are seeing the culmina-
tion of years of research coming
together to bring focus to excit-
ing new technology," said Chief
of Naval Research, Rear Adm.
Bill Landay. "Here at ONR we
are striving to move S&T from
vision to results."
The technology uses high
power electromagnetic energy
instead of explosive chemi-
cal propellants energeticc) to
propel a projectile farther and
faster than any preceding gun.
At full capability, the rail gun
will be able to fire a projectile


more than 200 nautical miles
at a muzzle velocity of mach
seven and impacting its target at
mach five.
In contrast, the current Navy
gun, MK 45 five-inch gun, has
a range of nearly 20 miles. The
high velocity projectile will
destroy its targets due to its
kinetic energy rather than with
conventional explosives.
The safety aspect of the
rail gun is one of its greatest
potential advantages, accord-
ing to Dr. Elizabeth D'Andrea,
ONR's Electromagnetic Railgun


Program Manager. Safety on
board ship is increased because
no explosives are required to
fire the projectile and no explo-
sive rounds are stored in the
ship's magazine.
Science and technology
challenges met by ONR in the
development of the rail gun
include development of the
launcher, pulse power genera-
tion and the guided projectile
design. The program's goal is
to demonstrate a full capability,
integrated railgun prototype by
2016-2018.

U.S. Navy Introduces


Next-Generation UBA


By Dan Broadstreet
.. Warfare Center Panama
C, t Division Public. ;
Accomplishing a System
Certification in January has
paved the way for the U.S.
Navy to begin improving it's
closed-circuit MK 16 MOD
1 Underwater Breathing
Apparatus (UBA) making div-
ing safer, easier and more effi-
cient for explosive ordnance
disposal (EOD) divers.
According to Wes Hughson,
customer advocate for Diving
at the Naval Surface Warfare
Center Panama City Division
(NSWC PCD), the newly modi-
fied diving rig is known as the
Next-Generation Underwater
Breathing Apparatus or NUBA.
"Also known as the UBA MK
16 MOD 2, the first 20 NUBAs
are due to be delivered this
March for checkout dives prior
to issuing follow-on units for
EOD use," Hughson said.
"This is a self-contained div-
ing rig, a re-breather that is
ideal for Mine Countermeasures
operations and an improvement
over-the-older rig because its
electronics have been modern-
ized to increase reliability and
better automate oxygen con-
centrations; it reduces pre-dive
setup times; and, it has been
streamlined to allow for ease
of mobility," said Chief Navy
Diver (SW) Jeffrey Landry, sta-
tioned at NEDU, Panama City.
ITT Contractor Neil Patterson,
senior UBA technician and con-
sultant for the EOD Program
Management Office, said the
rig's improved electronics and


consolidated display readings
made diving with the rig much
easier.
"This rig will be configured
to enable EOD divers to dive
deep and to dive on specific
mine threats," Patterson said.
"All the diver has to do is put
the rig on his back, insert the
mouthpiece, start breathing, and
the rig will do everything on its
own."
Terry Adams, NSWC PCD
Project Manager for EOD Fleet
Diving, explained that due to
recycling, a closed-circuit UBA
re-breather was more efficient
than Self-Contained Underwater
Breathing Apparatus or
(SCUBA) gear, whereas with
open-circuit SCUBA only a
portion of the oxygen in each
breath is used by the diver and
the rest is exhaled as bubbles.
"In a re-breather, the diver
is recycling the majority of his
gas. Carbon dioxide is removed
and oxygen is added to maintain
a breathable mix," Adams said,
adding that this makes the rig
ideal for low-noise operations,
because it can operate with few
or no bubbles released into the
water column.
According to Hughson,
NUBA also demonstrated "out-
standing" reliability during test-
ing.
"The MK 16 MOD 2 did not
experience a single operation-
al failure during 514 hours of
underwater testing," Hughson
said.
Mike Palmer, NSWC PCD's
head of the Diving Systems
Branch, said the facilities


required for developing NUBA s
system specifications and test-
ing were all centrally located
at the Naval Support Activity
Panama City (NSA PC).
"Located at NSA PC, we
have NSWC PCD, NEDU and
NDSTC (Naval Diving and
Salvage Training Center),"
Palmer said. "This helped us
conduct manned and unmanned
testing at the same site fi a huge
savings of taxpayers' dollars."
NEDU's Chief Navy Diver
(SW) Charles Patterson, who
participated in the actual
manned phases of testing
NUBA, said that "huge savings"
were also due in part because
NDSTC was open to sharing
their facilities.
"Because our Ocean
Simulation Facility was under-
going a scheduled overhaul,
NDSTC and their staff of
experts allowed us to bring
our divers and equipment over
and use their recompression
chambers, or wet pots, which
is what we actually call them,"
Patterson said. "They also con-
tributed by transporting us out
to deep sea in one of their div-
ing boats to conduct the deep-
dive phase of our manned test-
ing another significant cost
savings when you consider what
costs would have been to char-
ter a vessel for those dives."
According to Adams and
Hughson, pending approval of
the first 20 production MOD
2s, fleet, fill and training will
proceed in accordance with the
established production sched-
ule.

Navy Conducts Pregnancy,


Parenthood Survey Out


By Lt. Cmdr. Kim Dixon
( of Naval Personnel Diversity
Directorate
The Navy is looking for input
from more than 50,000 Navy
men and women to help under-
stand the impact of pregnancy
and parenthood on Navy readi-
ness by asking them to partici-
pate in the biennial Pregnancy
and Parenthood Survey.
In a Navy first, nearly every
woman in the Navy, more
than 41,000, along with 9,000
men, will receive a letter invit-
ing them to participate in the
survey. This 2008 survey
is particularly important as it
includes questions to gauge
reaction to the June 2007 revi-
sion of OPNAVINST 6000.1C,
Pregnancy and Parenthood
instruction.
"Participating in the survey
is one of the ways to truly have
an impact on Navy policy," said
Lt. Stephanie Miller, head of
the Navy's Women's Policy
office. "Many of the changes we
made in the recent revision to
the Pregnancy and Parenthood
instruction were the result of

The Pregnancy and
Parenthood survey has been
held since 1988, covering topics
such as family care plans, the
impact of individual augmentee
assignments, single parenthood,
sexual health training, fam-
ily planning, birth control, and
pregnancy.
"Changes such as the oper-
ational deferment, adoption
leave, and mandated com-
mand support for breastfeed-
ing service women (as outlined
in OPNAVINST 6000.1C) all
came from survey feedback,"
she said. "We're hoping to use
this year's survey as a way to
gauge reaction to those changes
in our effort to improve qual-
ity of life for military families,"
said Miller.
The survey will be open for
approximately eight weeks,
until the end of March. As in
previous versions, men and
women will receive the same
questions, except where minor

changes were required. Men
