During the recent Task Force
Life/Work Roadshow events
held in five fleet concentration
areas, Sailors provided more
than 250 feedback comments on
education issues, recommend-
ing changes to a variety of pro-
grams including the current TA
policy, according to Barrett.
"Listening to our Sailors
has allowed us to calibrate
the controls to become even
more effective," said Rear
Adm. Gary Jones, commander,
Naval Education and Training
Command. "We continue to
monitor the new policies and
their impact on Sailors and the

program, building the programs
and making changes as need-
ed. TA and NCPACE support
our Sailor's education goals
and are included as part of our
new Enlisted Learning and
Development Strategy that we
are beginning to rollout."
Setting realistic goals, con-
ducting early career planning,
and maintaining a balance
between job and education is
essential to a Sailor's success,
according to Ann Hunter, the
Navy's Voluntary Education
(VOLED) Service Chief.
"For example, Sailors with
four-year commitments may
find completing degree require-
ments challenging. Completion
of "A" School and satisfactory


progress toward warfare quali-
fications must come first," said
Hunter. "This doesn't prevent
Sailors from developing an edu-
cation plan and studying for
CLEP and DANTES exams.
"With careful planning, these
Sailors may complete 24-30
hours of college courses before
completion of their four-year
commitment. This, combined
with credit for military training
and experience, could lead to a
degree," added Hunter.
Sailors are required to assess
career and educational goals and
work with both Navy leader-
ship and Navy College Offices
to develop a plan that places a
priority on warfare and profes-
sional qualifications, and sup-


ports career development.
The education plan is only
one aspect of a Sailor's career
development plan. Full imple-
mentation of the Navy's man-
agement controls requires
cooperation between the Navy
College Offices, command lead-
ership and Sailors. Roles and
responsibilities are outlined in
the NAVADMIN.
Sailors can provide feedback
on VOLED policies by send-
ing feedback e-mails to voled@
navy.mil.

voluntary education and the
Navy College Program can be

AM "C" School in Pensacola,
Fla. in 2001. Upon graduation
from NDI School in January
2002, he reported for sea duty
on board USS Constellation
(CV-64) in San Diego. While
on board the Constellation as
the airframes LPO and the AM
quality assurance representative,
he participated in Operation
Iraqi Freedom and the liberation
of the Iraqi people.
Cowan's duty assignment
ended with his selection as chief
petty officer (CPO) in August
2003. Cowan transferred to
USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74)
when USS Constellation (CV-
64) decommissioned. Once

FRCSE Site Mayport in 2005.
His assignments at FRCSE Site

branch CPO, PC LCPO and the
administration division LCPO.
His first official act as CWO2
was the re-enlistment of two
FRCSE Site Mayport Sailors:
Aviation Structural Mechanic
2nd Class Hageman and Aviation
Structural Mechanic 2nd Class
Platt. During this re-enlistment,
Cowan offered this advice to
the Sailors, "Don't be a typi-
cal Sailor, take on a variety of
assignments, seek additional
responsibility and become qual-
ified! But most of all, take care
of the people around you."

All four of these individuals
made one aspect perfectly clear.
The people that they work with
and the collective drive they
have as a team is what makes
the job so fulfilling.
While proud of their career
accomplishments so far, these
Senior Sailors of the Year say
they still have several goals left
to achieve. They want to ensure
that those who come after them
have the same opportunities that
they had, and continue to be a
role model for those who sup-
ported them.
FRCSE also congratulates its
E-5 and below most outstanding
sailors. AZ2 Sarah Williams and

NEX Goes 'Green'


From NEXCOM
NEX customers will be able
to do their part to help the envi-
ronment by purchasing a multi-
use reusable shopping bag at
Navy Exchanges worldwide.
Green Bags will be available in
stores in the continental United
States late February and in
March for overseas NEXs. The
reusable bags will sell for $.99
for the non insulated bag and
$1.99 for the zippered insulated
bag.
The reusable bags are made
of a sturdy mesh, sewn together
from 100 percent polypropyl-
ene and can withstand repeated
usage. The bags' sturdy straps


L "


---^- "
New reusable bags available at
NEX.


carry a lot of weight without
tearing, and have a flat bot-
tom to help prevent tip-overs.
Best of all, they are moisture
resistant and can be recy-
cled when no longer usable.
"The NEX is always looking for
ways to help the environment
and make the shopping expe-
rience a pleasant one for our
customers" said Mike Mongin,
NEXCOM Operations Program
Manager. "The NEX reusable
Green Bags reduce the need for
plastic or paper bags at checkout
and make the shopping trip a
little easier. These bags are also
easy to store in your vehicle for
your next trip to the NEX."

Commissaries 'Going Green'

With Fluorescent Bulbs


By Lynda Valentine
DeCA
Want to use up to 75 percent
less energy every time you turn
on a lamp and save money on
your energy bills at the same
time? It's as easy as unscrew-
ing your incandescent light bulb
and replacing it with a compact
fluorescent light bulb those
long-lasting, swirl-shaped bulbs
found in the household goods
aisle at your commissary.
Lighting accounts for rough-
ly 20 percent of the average
home's energy bill, according to
the U.S. Department of Energy.
To encourage commissary cus-
tomers to decrease their energy
use, DeCA is partnering with
Osram Sylvania and General
Electric to offer great prices
on compact fluorescent lights
- called CFLs. The ambitious
plan: Sell 1 million compact
fluorescent bulbs to customers
in 2008, more than doubling the
number currently sold in com-
missaries worldwide.
"Rising utility costs, coupled
with an increasing awareness
on the part of our customers
about the benefits of conserva-
tion, have given us incentive to
introduce this '1-million' plan,"
said Rick Page, DeCA's acting
director.
"We work hard at all our
stores to cut energy costs and
protect the environment by
building energy-efficient stores,


watching our energy consump-
tion, and recycling plastic, wood
and paper products. These are
just a few of the things we do as
part of our corporate policy," he
said. No%% we're taking it one
step further by offering custom-
ers an opportunity to 'go green'
with us by conserving energy in
their homes."
Although CFLs cost more
than a traditional bulb, they use
less electricity, last up to 10
times longer, produce 75 per-
cent less heat, and save consum-
ers as much as $30 over the life
of each bulb. In addition, CFLs
now come in a variety of shapes
and sizes to fit almost any light
fixture in your home. Service
members stationed overseas and
living in off-base communities
may have homes with different
voltage requirements than CFLs
offered in the commissary.
DOE recommends consum-
ers replace their traditional light
bulbs with the more energy-
efficient CFLs in all high-use
fixtures in a home. High-use
is defined as fixtures used at
least 15 minutes at a time or
several hours per day, such as
those found in family and living
rooms, kitchens, dining rooms,
bedrooms and outdoors. Service
members stationed overseas
who live in off-base commu-
nities may have homes with
different voltage requirements
than CFLs offered in the com-


missary.
According to DOE's Web
site, if every American fam-
ily replaces just five bulbs, we
would save close to $8 billion
each year in energy costs, and
prevent the greenhouse gases
equivalent to the emissions from
nearly 10 million cars.
CFLs offer many benefits, but
they contain mercury. To pre-
vent mercury from ending up
in landfills, the Environmental
Protection Agency recom-
mends customers visit http://
w w w. epa. go v/bulb rec y -
cling or http://www.earth911.
org to identify local recycling
options for CFLs, when pos-
sible. Customers living in mil-
itary housing can check with
their installation for recycling
options, and service members
living overseas in off-base com-
munities can investigate host
government programs.
Coal-fired power plants are
the largest man-made source of
airborne mercury because mer-
cury that naturally exists in coal
is released into the air when
coal is burned to make electric-
ity. Coal-fired power generation
accounts for roughly 40 percent
of the mercury emissions in the
United States. The use of CFLs
reduces power demand, which
helps reduce mercury emissions
from power plants.

Navy's Environmental Readiness


Director Discusses Sonar, New Web Site


From Lt. Jennifer Cragg, Navy News
Service; and Tracey Moriarty, ( .of
Naval Operation Environmental Readi-
ness Division
The Environmental Director
for the Chief of Naval
Operations has spearheaded the
creation of a new Web site to
better educate and inform the
public and Sailors on what the
U.S. Navy is doing to protect
the seas and its inhabitants dur-
ing crucial training exercises.
Rear Adm. Larry Rice,
director of the Chief of Naval
Operations Environmental
Readiness Division (N45),
recently discussed why training
with sonar is important and vital
to national security.
"We cannot send our
American Sailors and Marines
into potential trouble spots
around the world without ade-
quate training to defend them,"
said Rice. "This is a national
security issue, and we must use
all methods available to ensure
that arbitrary and excessive
restrictions do not hamper our
ability to train."
Rice added that the TI S


Navy has trained in Southern
California for the past 40 years
and they have had zero inci-
dents with marine mammals--
no standings, no deaths, and no
documented injuries.
"We want to keep that up,"
added Rice. "In order to accom-
plish this, we have 29 protec-
tive measures that we already
employ. The additional training
restrictions that the court levied
on us frankly don't help us take
care of the environment--and it
restricts our training."
Rice added that it is impor-
tant for Sailors and citizens
to know how small an impact
Navy sonar has on the marine
environment.
As part of learning what type
of impact the Navy is having,
Rice encourages everyone to
log onto the Navy's newest
sonar Web site, which features
information on whales, video
clips, environmental stories, the
Currents magazine and more.
The web site is located at
www.navy.mil/oceans .
Rice also added that it is


important that people are aware
of the many reasons for strand-
ings.
For nations that track such
events, worldwide naval use of
active sonar has been correlated
with the stranding of approxi-
mately 50 whales during the 10-
year period from 1996-2006.
"Contrast that with over
3,500 marine mammal 'normal'
strandings that occur on U.S.
shores annually, and 600,000
marine mammal deaths each
year by commercial fish-
ing interests," Rice said. "So,
let's examine this: 600,000
are attributable to commercial
fishing, over 3,500 a year are
contributable to normal causes,
and approximately five a year
to sonar. And remember that in
the last couple of years sonar-
caused deaths have been zero."
Rice attributes the U.S.
Navy's success with sonar to
the fleet operators who are pay-
ing attention to what is going on
in the world with marine mam-
mals and sonar, and they realize
that this is really important. The

Navy Awards Contracts For


Zumwalt Class Destroyers


From Navy News Service
The Navy has exercised con-
tract modifications for the con-
struction of the dual lead ships
of the Zumwalt class (DDG
1000) to General Dynamics
Bath Iron Works and Northrop
Grumman Shipbuilding. DDG
1000 and DDG 1001 are the
lead ships of a class of next-
generation multi-mission sur-
face combatants tailored for
land-attack and littoral domi-
nance.
BIW was awarded a $1.4 bil-
lion cost-plus contract for the
construction of DDG 1000, and
NGSB was awarded a $1.4 bil-
lion cost-plus contract for con-
struction of DDG 1001. The
Navy and industry are using a
thorough design-for-produc-
ibility process to pursue every
opportunity to reduce cost
on the DDG 1000 class with-
out reducing key performance
parameters. The Navy's dual
lead-ship strategy has reduced
cost and encouraged collabora-
tion. This approach will give

fications for future acquisition

addresses congressional con-
cerns regarding maintaining the
industrial base.
"When you look at DDG
1000, the technology is
extraordinary," said Chief of
Naval Operations Adm. Gary
Roughead. "It is unique in that
we have never tried to bring
online so many new technol-
ogies, but the steps that have
been taken and the investments
that have been made have
reduced the risk that is normally
associated with new technology.
The Zumwalt-class of ships is
really quite impressive."
DDG 1000 has been in
design, development and emon-
stration for almost six years.
The Navy has successfully, on
cost and on schedule, built and
tested the 10 critical technolo-
gies that provide the capabilities
future ships need. The ship's
detail design effort is also on
cost and on schedule, and will
be more complete at the start

a testament to the close coop-

that our record of zero marine
mammal incidents in Southern
California was kept up. It's
important that we keep that up
so the training can continue,"
said Rice.
Rice added that one of the
reasons for zero standings asso-
ciated with sonar is the result of
continued U.S. Navy research.
"The U.S. Navy funds $18
million a year in marine mam-
mal research, including inde-
pendent, peer-reviewed research
conducted by Boston University,
Duke University, University
of Hawaii and Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institution.
Research topics include sound

The Navy announced
requirements for the Active
Duty Flying Chief Warrant
Officer (CWO) Pilot Program in
NAVADMIN 020/08, released
Jan. 25.
"This program harnesses the
strengths of today's Sailors and
shapes the Navy of tomorrow
by developing chief warrant
officer's whose careers will be
focused solely on flying duties
both at sea and ashore," said
Vice Adm. John C. Harvey, Jr,
chief of naval personnel.
Sailors E-5 through E-7, who
want a career in aviation and meet
the criteria in the NAVADMIN,
should submit an application.
Completed applications are due
no later than June 13. The board
convenes in July when five pilots
and three Naval Flight Officers
(NFO) will be selected.
"The Navy is looking for hard-
charging motivated Sailors
interesting in flying a Navy
aircraft. This is a fantastic
opportunity for someone who
didn't get a chance to attend
flight school before enlisting,"
said Lt. Cmdr Michael Black,
director of the Navy's flying

While the U.S. Navy works
hard to train in an environmen-
tally responsible manner, sub-
marine technology is improving
and widely available to inter-
ested nations. More than 300
extremely quiet diesel electric
submarines operate in 41 coun-
tries worldwide. These subma-
rines are cheap, mass produced
and readily available to any
country that wants to pursue
this technology.
Rice explained how difficult a
job sonar technicians have when
trying to pinpoint the sound of
an extremely quiet submarine.
"As you know the ocean isn't
like the atmosphere. The ocean
is changing all of the time,
whether it is the salinity, wheth-
er it is the density, whether it
is the currents out there. It is a
noisy place; not only are there
submarines out there, but there
is wave sound, rain sounds,
there are other marine mam-
mals, there are seismic sounds,
earthquakes, volcanoes6a lot
of sounds in the oceans, and
they have to pick out that real-


ly quiet diesel electric subma-
rine amongst all of those other
sounds. That isn't something
that we can simulate," said
Rice.
The U.S. Navy employs 29
protective measures to protect
marine life when using mid-fre-
quency active sonar during a
major exercise or within estab-
lished ranges or operating area.
The measures include sta-
tioning trained lookouts, pas-
sive acoustics monitoring for
marine mammals, employing
night vision, establishing pro-
tective safety zones around
ships, taking appropriate action
when marine mammals are
spotted, and employing extra
precautions during chokepoint
exercises. These measures were
developed with and are fully
supported by Federal environ-
mental regulators, including
the National Marine Fisheries
Service.

Florida Forever Buffers Florida Military


Bases To Protect


From The Nature Conservancy
The $52 billion in economic
benefits the military and defense
industries provide in Florida
face two major threats: devel-
opment encroachment on bases
and the loss of healthy habitats
for native species throughout
the state.
To address these threats and
grow the economic strength of
the military, bases must be pro-
tected by acquiring conservation
lands important to the military,
The Nature Conservancy said
last week in response to a study
released Feb. 1 that shows an
$8 billion increase in military
economic benefits over the past
two years or the equivalent
of nine percent per year.
An invigorated Florida
Forever program combined
with federal dollars allocated
for base buffering will help
protect Florida bases from
future realignments or closures,
according to the Conservancy
and officials from the Florida


Defense Alliance, an organiza-
tion created within Enterprise
Florida in 1998 to ensure that
Florida, its military bases and
its military host communities
are improving base efficiencies.
"Our Florida military have
been skillful managers of the
wildlife and habitats on their
properties allowing a multitude
of plant and animal species to
thrive alongside testing and
training operations," said Jeff
Danter, Florida director of The
Nature Conservancy. "We are
constantly looking to enhance
the value of these sites by
acquiring the important buffers
and habitat connectors to these
bases."
For example, The Nature
Conservancy and the state
recently acquired 11,313 acres
of the long-sought Yellow River
Ravines Florida Forever project,
which links outstanding natural
areas in Eglin Air Force Base
(AFB) with those in Blackwater
River State Forest.

JR Motorsports Shows Military Might At Daytona


From ( of Naval Personnel Public

JR Motorsports team owner
Dale Earnhardt Jr., and No.
88 "Accelerate Your Life"
Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS
driver Brad Keselowski might
be driving the colors of differ-
ent military services in Feb. 16
Camping World 300 at Daytona
International Speedway, but on
the track, they'll be carrying out
a mission of teamwork parallel
to the Soldiers and Sailors they
represent.


Earnhardt, who will drive
the No. 5 National Guard car
in five races in the NASCAR
Nationwide Series this season,
said that just like a chief petty
officer in the Navy or a senior
non-commissioned officer in
the Guard, he has been men-
toring Keselowski for his first
Daytona race.
"Since we're both on the
same team, obviously we're
going to work together to help
one another succeed," said
Eamhardt. "From a team-owner


standpoint, just like the services
we represent, we're going to be
working together toward one
common goal, a one-two fin-
ish."
Representatives from the
Navy and National Guard
Motorsports programs were
both quick to point out that
while most NASCAR spon-
sors are battling against one
another for exposure, having JR
Motorsports represent both ser-
vices in the race means better
exposure for the military, which


is a marketing win for all.
"We have partnered with JR
Motorsports in the NASCAR
Nationwide Series because we
feel Dale Earnhardt Jr., and
Brad Keselowski both under-
stand military service, and their
profession closely mirrors the
high-tech, teamwork oriented
environment in which we oper-
ate," said Capt. Jack Hanzlik,
Chief of Naval Personnel Public
Affairs Officer.
"I think those synergies
go a long way on and off the


track," said Col. Mike Jones,
chief, Army Guard Recruiting
and Retention. "The Navy and
National Guard serve alongside
one another on the battlefield,
and this weekend in Daytona
we'll work together to create
a win-win Jr. Motorsports vic-
tory."
Earnhardt agrees that com-
mon goal aside, there will be
a healthy dose of competition
among the two teams when the
green flag waves.
"I've spent a lot of time


with Sailors out the fleet, and
I've had the chance to spend
some time with Soldiers in
the Guard," Earnhardt said. "I
know first-hand that both are
dedicated to the mission, and
both are sure their service is the
best. I bet there will be some
spirited discussions in the pits
on Saturday among the Soldiers
and Sailors in uniform, not to
mention the two pit crews."

you are involved in a car accident and
the other driver is at fault and has med-
ical coverage on his auto policy. Or,
you are injured on the job and are cov-
ered under Workers Compensation.
To ensure you are getting the ben-
efits from the TPC program, update
your insurance information annually
or if your coverage changes. This may
be done at NHJ Outpatient Records
or when you are checking in for an
appointment. If your appointment is


related to an accident or injury where
another party is liable, let the staff
know every visit.
The TPC funds collected from pri-
vate health carriers are used to enhance
the quality of care and level of services
provided for military families at the
hospital and its branch health clinics.
So help yourself and help your ship-
mates by providing and periodically
updating your other health insurance
information at the MTF.


Families Prepare To Help Children Cope During


Military
By Patricia Opong-Brown
TRICARE Management Activity
In today's Military, deploy-
ments are part of life. Pending
a deployment in the States or
overseas, the family, especially
the children, may have anxiety
and concerns. Not to worry,
there are many ways to help
children cope with the absence
of a deployed parent.
According to the Uniformed
Services University of the
Health Sciences in Bethesda,
Maryland, there are three
important central approaches
to help children cope during
deployment. Reinforce that the
deployed parent is trained to
do his or her job, reinforce that
the family and children at home
also have jobs, and ensure that
communication with the chil-
dren is age appropriate.
Just like doctors have special
training to take care of people
who are not feeling well or fire-
fighters have special training
to fight fires, the Active Duty
parent has to assure children
that he or she has the training
and skills to do the work while
deployed.
Military medical experts sug-
gest reminding children that
while their parent is deployed,
they have roles in the household
that are just as important. The
jobs can be helping mom or dad
around the house, being suc-
cessful in school, taking on new
chores or maintaining a healthy
lifestyle.
"On the other hand, it
is not healthy to tell a son
that he is going to be 'the
man of the house,'" said Ms.
Jennifer Wickizer, Community
Readiness Consultant, Airmen
and Family Readiness Center
(A&FRC), Bolling Air Force
Base. This puts too much pres-
sure and stress on the child.
"Parents need to discuss the
pending deployment with chil-
dren in ways that are age-appro-
priate," said Ms. Wickizer. She
also stresses that parents should
take their cues from the child
to determine how much infor-
mation should be presented.
Provide just the right amount of
information and answer ques-
tions accordingly, but do not
get into information overload
mode. "Encourage children
to express their feelings: sad,
mad or happy, and validate their
emotions," she said.
Since preschoolers have no
concept of time, experts rec-
ommend parents use visuals to
illustrate when mom or dad will
be coming home. For instance,
says Ms. Wickizer, "a candy


Deployn
jar with jelly beans is a good
visual. Count the number of
jelly beans for each day the par-
ent is expected to be away, and
each day the child can take a
jelly bean out of the jar. As the
deployment moves on, the jar
has less jelly beans in it."
The consultant cautions par-
ents against marking the return
date on the calendar because
deployments are very unpre-
dictable. For example, said Ms.
Wickizer, "the parent can be
held over or extended. When
the parent does not come home
on the day with the big red cir-
cle, this creates a huge disap-
pointment for the child. On the
other hand, unlike the big red
circle on the calendar, a candy
jar can easily be manipulated.
If the parent at home gets news
that the deployment is extended,
he or she can slip more candy
into the jar, or remove candy
if the deployed parent will be
coming home sooner."
"Planning an event in the
future, such as a family vaca-
tion, not only gives the child
something positive to focus on,
but also reassures the child that
the parent will come home. Just
do not make any plans too close
to the anticipated return date in
case the deployed member is
not able to come home at that
exact time," recommended Ms.
Wickizer.
Before he deploys at the
end of the year, Senior Master
Sergeant (SMSgt) LesRoy
Williams, assigned to the
Logistics Readiness Squadron
at Seymour Johnson Air Force
Base, North Carolina, and
his family will watch Sesame
Street's Talk, Listen, Connect:
Helping Families During
Military Deployment with their
4-year-old daughter.
All Military families with
children 3- to 5-years-old can
get streaming video or request
a free bilingual kit at www.ses-
ameworkshop.org/tlc. The kit
educates parents and caregivers
on how to help children cope
with all areas of pre-deploy-
ment, deployment, and home-
coming.
Russell Research, Inc., in
consultation with the Military
Family Research Institute, sur-
veyed 367 spouses of Active
Duty, National Guard, and
Reserve personnel. More than
80 percent of those surveyed
rated the Sesame Street DVD
and kit highly effective and
easy to understand for both
children and adults. Families
also reported that the program
increased communication about

nents


deployment and reduced nega-
tive behaviors.
Unlike preschoolers, ele-
mentary school-age children
have a better concept of time,
but "candy jars work for this
age group as well," said Ms.
Wickizer. At this age, the
deploying parent and the child
can come up with ways to stay
in touch or think of each other.
For instance, the child and par-
ent can wear synchronized stop
watches and set the []alarm to
go off at a determined time.
Each time the alarm goes off,
it will mean, "I'm thinking of
you," suggested Ms. Wickizer.
Abstract thinking begins at
ages 9 through 12. This age
group understands the con-
cept of a return date. Military
experts recommend providing
children in this age range with
stationary and stamps to write
letters or set up e-mail accounts
for keeping in touch and com-
municating with their deployed
parent. The A&FRC provides
writing kits for children of vari-


With TRICARE Help


ous age groups.
In addition to writing let-
ters, children can also write in
journals. Health Net Federal
Services, the TRICARE man-
aged care support contrac-
tor for the northern region,
has produced a journal aimed
at Military children. Life, a
Kids' Journal, helps Military
children successfully deal with
challenges, especially deploy-
ments. The journal helps
children make sense of their
feelings while mom or dad is
deployed. Organizations in the
TRICARE northern region can
order complementary copies by
calling (571) 227-6553 or (916)
351-5355. Anyone can down-
load the journal from the link
found at www.hnfs.net/com-
mon/newsResources/Kids+Jou
rnal+News+Release.htm. The
Military Health System Web
site has a "Kid's Comer," where
children will be able to share
their writing, artwork or draw-
ings at http://mhs.osd.mil/kid-
scorner.jsp.

According to Ms. Wickizer,
"High school kids are a little
harder to please and e-mail is
the best recommendation for
teenagers. By working with
the child's school, the deploy-
ing parent can arrange to make
morale calls to the child at
school." Deployment journals
are another tool for middle
school and high school kids.
When it gets closer to his
deployment date, SMSgt
Williams will talk about where
he is going with his 16-year-old
daughter and 12-year-old son.
If the location is not classified,
he will have them research the
country online. Ms. Wickizer
recommends www.deployment-
kids.com. "This Web site pro-
vides information about various
deployment locations, but it is
set at kids' level so that just the
right amount of information is
provided."
In addition to researching,
SMSgt Williams will give his
children a travel window rather
than exact dates, "which will


DIRECTAX

TAX AND MORTGAGE SERVICES


cover any changes and reduce
thoughts of 'daddy's lost'
or 'daddy did not make it,' if
they do not hear from me right
away."
Pre-deployment is a busy time
for the Military member, but it
is important to make time to talk
as a family. Encourage every
member to express how they are
feeling. "I honestly think main-
taining a positive communica-
tion structure with your children
before, during, and after your
return helps to build a stronger
relationship, which creates an
emotionally sturdy child," said
SMSgt Williams. "Especially
for when the next deployment
rolls around, and believe me, it
is coming."
For more information about
children coping with deploy-
ment, go to a local A&FRC,
Marine Corps Community
Services, Army Community
Services, Fleet and Family
Support Center or visit www.
