In an effort to curb crime and
make over a shady reputation,
the city of Atlantic Beach plans
a massive beautification project
on Mayport Road that promises
positive change.
Backed by a $5.5 million
contract, the proposed develop-
ments drew the attention of area
residents and business owners at
a public meeting for the project
on March 31 at Atlantic Beach
Commission Chamber.
The contract for construction
of raised landscaped medians
on Mayport Road between the
Mayport Flyover and Pioneer
Drive will improve both pedes-
trian and vehicle safety as a
result of access management
and serve as a traffic calming
feature in the corridor, accord-
ing to city planners. Additional
construction will include the
resurfacing of Mayport Road
from the Flyover to north of
Wonderwood Drive. A separate
follow-on project will upgrade


the traffic signals throughout
the corridor, replacing the span-
wire mounted signals with mast
arms mounted signals.
Construction is expected to
begin this April and last for at
least a year. An official ground-
breaking ceremony for the proj-
ect will be held on April 8.
"The purpose of this proj-
ect is to beautify the road and
make it a less desirable area for
street crime, prostitution, tran-
sient occupancy and the per-
ception that the area is unsafe,"
said Sonya Doerr, Community
Development Director for the
City of Atlantic Beach.
"This is an area commonly
considered to be a tired and
aging corridor, and is too often
avoided by new businesses and
new residents. But to the con-
trary, this area represents a criti-
cal part of Jacksonville's iden-
tity and economy. The Navy
is our largest employer, and
the beaches and our waterfront

FFGRON Celebrates First
By MC2 Regina L. Brown
Fleet Public.- Center Detachment
Southeast Public, ;
The Frigate Class Squadron
(FFGRON) celebrated it's first
anniversary along side USS De
Wert (FFG 45) at Naval Station
Mayport, March 25.
The FFGRON was stood up
last February at Naval Station
Mayport and is a part of the
Class Squadron (CLASSRON)
organizational concept under, -
the Surface Warfare Enterprise iL
(SWE) that was put into action
in October 2006. Eight class-
specific CLASSRONs were
created and are overseen by *
Commander Naval Surface
Force, Atlantic.
The reorganization of the
SWE strengthened the surface
force relationship, allowing for I i
better communication of class-
specific issues, specifically the
issues of manning, training,
equipping, modernizing and
sustaining surface ships. -Photo by A

We are entering the last phas-
es of our Main Gate project. In
the month of April we will once
again have lane closures to erect
the steel for the superstructure.
A message was released to all
commands on the planned clo-
sures and will be also listed in
The Mirror. Expect the pipes
for dredging on Main Street to
disappear shortly as that part of
the dredging is near completion.
You may have noticed in the
news last week that the Navy
released the draft Environmental
Impact Statement regard-
ing homeporting options at
Mayport. All 12 options that
were studied are viable. As
you know, "Big Navy" has sev-
eral options on the table that
will assess the homeporting
of Atlantic Fleet surface ships
here that could include cruis-
ers, destroyers, amphibious
ships and potentially a nuclear
powered carrier. Plenty of local
and national interest is involved
here and I can assure you that
what ever the outcome is, we
will do what we do best every-
day and that is to support the
war fighter, the men and women


Capt. Aaron Bowman
in uniform making a difference.
April is the Month of the
Military Child/Child Abuse
Prevention Month and Naval
Station Mayport is doing it
up right. On April 11, I will
join with Fleet and Family
Support Center and the Child
Development Center to pledge
NavSta's support in preventing
child abuse.
I know it is almost cliche to
say, but children really are our
future and each child deserves
to be treated with love and car-
ing. It is up to all of us to rec-


ognize the signs of child abuse
and report it when noticed. Not
only are you saving a child, but
a family as well. At Mayport,
FFSC has planned several
events to promote child abuse
prevention and military children.
On April 9, FFSC representa-
tives will be at the main Navy
Exchange to hand out informa-
tion on child abuse prevention.
There will an English Tea for
Expectant Moms sponsored by
New Parent Support Program
at FFSC. The tea will be held
in Building One on April 16
from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. Registration
is required. On April 30, New
Parent Support Program is
also sponsoring a Stress and
Relaxation Workshop from 8:30
a.m.-3:30 p.m., at Ocean Breeze
Conference Center. This work-
shop is for all military moms,
including active duty and family
members. Lunch will be provid-
ed. Sportswear and tennis shoes
are recommended. Registration
is required for both events and
childcare is not available. Call
the FFSC at 270-6600, ext.
1701 to register.
NOSA is gearing up for its


annual Time and Talent/Silent
Auction and Life Auction at
6:30 p.m. on April 18 at Ocean
Breeze Conference Center and
I'm expecting to have some
big fun. I've heard it on good
authority that things are going
to be mixed up a bit this year
to up the fun factor. No one
will be safe from having a good
time. There are a lot of items
on sale, including my parking
space at the Exchange. Plus,
the event's proceeds will go to
charities that benefit the Navy
and its community. Tickets are
being sold for $15 in advance
and $20 at the door. Make sure
and get your tickets and bring
a friend. Everyone is welcome.

The city of Atlantic Beach
held a public meeting Monday
to discuss the Mayport Road
beautification project. The con-
struction is expected to begin
in April and last 300 days. This
project will include landscaped
and irrigated raised medians
that will eliminate the "chicken
lanes" that currently allow traf-


fic to turn along Mayport Road.
The project also includes resur-
facing Mayport Road from the
Flyover to Wonderwood Drive,
as well as another project to
upgrade traffic signals along the
road to mast arms mounted sig-
nals rather than the wire mount-
ed signals. In conjunction with
the road beautification, expect
to see zoning law enforcement,
increased police presence, and
more community involvement
on the Mayport corridor. In less
than a year, the experience driv-
ing down Mayport road will be
extremely enjoyable.
We have had some recent
issues regarding smoking
around government buildings.
According to NS Mayport and
Federal policy there should be
no smoking in front of a build-
ing, nor near any ingress or
egress, any intake vents and
any windows used for ventila-
tion. Basically common sense
approach applies if someone
complains that a smoke area is
bothering them then smokers
should be told not to smoke in
that area. Unless not able to
due some reason, I would say


that 25 feet is appropriate stand-
off as a minimum.
Bravo Zulu's go to the diver-
sity teams of NavSta, SERMC
and NBHC. The teams put
together a Combined Command
Women's History Month
Observance on March 26 at the
Base Chapel. Guest speakers for
the event included Ruby George
of Duval Teachers United and
Cmdr. Edgar, a senior nurse at
NBHC. World War II veter-
ans Mary Le Judd and Jeanne
Averill also attended the event
to talk about their experiences
in the Navy and Marine Corps.
I was very impressed with the
caliber of the event and the
amount of participation.
Thank you for all that you
do, and please keep those sug-
gestions coming in by email
at aaron.bowman navy.mil,
or at our new CO's suggestion
box located on the quarterdeck
inside Building One. Your con-
cerns are my concerns.


CREDO Corner


Celebratina Diversity


By Lt. Cmdr. Dorman
"Curt" Dowling
Chaplain and Deputy Director, Spiritual
Fitness Division/CREDO SE
A man named Jim who is
getting up in years said one of
the things he's noticed with
the passage of time is how his
perspective on age is chang-
ing. The policeman who stops
him for speeding looks like a
kid. His granddaughter's teach-
er looks like she ought to be
in high school herself. On the
other hand, people his age seem
so old. Jim said he ran into a
friend of his that he hadn't seen
in a long time. "My friend had
aged so much," Jim said, "and
he didn't recognize me."
No one is exempt from the
passage of time. We look in
the mirror one day and we are
shocked at the person we have
become. Some of this is our
own doing.
A trusted advisor of President
Lincoln recommended a can-
didate for Lincoln's cabinet.
Lincoln declined. When he was


asked why, he said, "I don't like
the man's face."
"But the poor man is not
responsible for his face," his
advisor insisted.
"Every man over forty is
responsible for his face,"
Lincoln replied.
Think about that for a
moment--everyone over forty
is responsible for his or her own
face.
There was a follow-up study
of personality tests taken by
a group of women when they
were in their teens. These
women were now in their fif-
ties. The researchers wanted to
know if a woman's personal-
ity could affect her appearance.
These forty-year-old personality
tests provided the perfect oppor-
tunity to answer this question.
Here is what the study found:
Women in their fifties who as
teens had been rated as friend-
ly and outgoing by their peers
were judged more attractive
thirty-some years later than their
peers who had been rated aloof


and unfriendly as teens. This
result held true regardless of
the women's original physical
appeal. The researcher summed
it up like this: "The kind of per-
son a woman is influences the
kind of appearance she devel-
ops."
It's probably true of men as
well. You can tell by looking
at some people that they have
had a hard life. You can see the
anger and the bitterness and the
regret. You can look at other
people and tell just from their
face that they have a kind and
generous nature. You can see the
love and the self-acceptance.
It's fine to invest in exercise
equipment and to eat a proper
diet so that you may look your
best. But, if you really want to
look good, you really ought to
invest in the kind of person you
are.
Your character can affect your
appearance. So can your sense
of identity. Who are you on the
inside?

H omefront in Focus


By Beth Wilson
Military Spouse Contributor
I want to be a kid again! I
have the best memories
from summer camp and as I
researched opportunities for our
military children well, I want
to be a kid again! This is the
time of year we start to plan
summer activities for our chil-
dren and I have found some
great opportunities for you.
Operation Purple, a free
summer camp sponsored by
the National Military Family
Association (NMFA) tops this
year's list of summer offerings.
Operation Purple is specifically
designed for children of cur-
rently or soon to be deployed


service members. Forty camps
offered in 26 states, campers
will have the time of their life.
The staff is specifically trained
to support the needs and chal-
lenges faced by children of
service members who face the
emotional challenge and stress
of a parent serving in the mili-
tary. Each camp provides activi-
ties and events to promote con-
fidence, team-work and perhaps
most important, peer-friend-
ships with other children of ser-
vice members.
All military children are
eligible to apply with prior-
ity given to children with a
parent deployed from May
2007 through November 2008.
Registration is currently under-


way. Logon to www.operation-
purple.org for complete infor-
mation and to register online.
The cost of the camp is free
with the exception of transpor-
tation to and from the camp.
Deadline for applications is
The Military Child Education
Coalition (MCEC) is again
sponsoring scholarships to the
NASA Space Camp for chil-
dren interested in science and
the space program. (Can I
pleeeeze be a kid again?) This
five-day camp in Huntsville, AL
includes a time to bond with
other children, experience shut-
tle flight simulation and much
more. Applications are avail-
able at www.militarychild.org.
While on this website check


out ]\ I EC s "Call for the Arts"
contest for your children's art-
work, videography, poetry and
more.
NMFA and MCEC camps
are national but there are many
opportunities on the local level
for your children. The Salvation
Army provides both day camps
and overnight camping experi-
ences for children, youth and
teens. I have it on the authority
of two teens that the Salvation
Army's extreme camp was
'AWESOME!' Contact your
local chapter of the Salvation
Army for their summer activi-
ties.
Another local resource
for your family is the Armed
Services YMCA. From day


camps, weekend camping and
week-long trips the "Y" offers
some of the best summer fun to
be found. Most military intense
communities have an Armed
Services YMCA but even if
your local "Y" is not designated
an "Armed Services Y" check
out their summer schedule for
an equally exciting summer of
fun. Check out www.asymca.
org for both national and local
events and opportunities.
While we are talking about
the YMCA, I want to intro-
duce a wonderful project
they provide for your chil-
dren; Operation Kid Comfort.
Operation Kid Comfort pro-
vides FREE blankets or pillows
to the children of deployed ser-


vice members. These items are
created with photo-transfers of
favorite photos chosen by the
child and service member of
their life together. These items
bring much needed comfort and
an added sense of connection
for children. To order your per-
sonalized quilt or pillow log on
to www.operationkidcomfort.
com or www.asymcs.org and
click on 'for kids'.
This week is part one of plan-
ning a great summer for you and
your family. Next week we'll
look at planning a millionaire's
vacation on a military budget!

Boone Rescues Man Overboard


By Lt.j.g. Steven Gonzalez
USS Boone PAO
Crew members from USS
Boone (FFG 28) rescued a USS
George Washington (CVN 73)
Sailor who fell overboard dur-
ing a recent underway replen-
ishment.
The Sailor fell from the
flight deck while USS George
Washington was conducting
underway replenishment opera-
tions in the Atlantic Ocean 100
miles off the Florida coast.
"I was at my UNREP sta-
tion when we heard 'man
overboard' called," said Lt.j.g
Adam Wiseman, Boone's 1st
Lieutenant. "I ran to the boat


deck where I saw the crew pre-
paring the RHIB (rigid hull
inflatable boat) for launch.
Within minutes the coxswain,
SAR swimmer and I where in
the RHIB ready to go."
On the bridge, Ensign
Roxanne Benson, Boone's
Officer of the Deck at the
time, was maneuvering Boone
to UNREP waiting station,
500 yards astern of George
Washington.
"Once George Washington
called the 'man overboard,' I
began to safely maneuver
Boone while in close proxim-
ity to the carrier and other ship
ahead of us and still carry out


the operation of rescuing a ship-
mate."
To add to the difficulty of the
rescue, Boone had its Towed
Array Sonar streamed behind
the ship.
Once in position, the OOD
launched the RHIB and
Boatswain's Mate 2nd Class
Tiago Campos, Boone's cox-
swain, drove the RHIB to
the Sailor in the water where
rescue (SAR) swimmer
Boatswain's Mate 3rd Class
Justin Marcum prepared to enter
the water. Once in the water,
Marcum battled the current
and swells to reach the Sailor.
"When I reached him I asked


him if he was all right," said
Marcum, "and assured him I
was there to get him out of the
water. I went through my pro-
cedures to ensure he was not
hurt or hung up on anything that
might have been in the water."
From start to finish, the
entire rescue took seven min-
utes. Once aboard Boone,
the Sailor was treated by
medical Corpsman and then
transferred by helo back to
USS George Washington.
Wiseman, Benson, Campos
and Marcum were commended
for their actions and were each
awarded the Navy and Marine
Corps Achievement Medal.

USS De Wert Sailors Experience More Than



Just St. Patrick's Day Festivities In Boston


By Ensign Ashley Wykoff
USS De Wert PAO
USS De Wert (FFG
45) moored in Boston,
Massachusetts for a highly
enjoyable four-day port visit in
the historically beautiful city on
March 14.
As soon as "Moored! Shift
colors!" sounded over the 1MC,
the Officers and Sailors immedi-
ately began participating in the
community relations (ComRel)
and St. Patrick's Day festivi-
ties that the Boston Welcoming
Committee scheduled for the
crew's enjoyment.
The port visit kicked off with
a ComRel project at the New
England Shelter for Homeless
Veterans. The members of the
ship's wardroom and crew who
were able to attend returned
from the trip with smiling faces
and heartwarming stories after
serving lunch to and visiting
with the veterans.
Ensign Joel Lakey said, "I
was very impressed with the
way the shelter not only pro-
vided meals and a place for
the veterans to sleep, but also
opportunities to acquire the
skills they'll need to find jobs,
earn money, and overcome per-
sonal difficulties."
The shelter opened in 1990,
and is the nation's first and
largest veteran-specific home-
less shelter. It focuses on help-
ing homeless men and women
veterans who are addressing
challenges such as addiction,
trauma, severe mental illnesses,
and unemployment. The shelter
gladly opens its doors to vet-
erans seeking to commit them-
selves to sobriety, non-violence,
and who are working for per-
sonal change.
The New England Shelter
for Homeless Veterans is recog-
nized as one of the most effec-
tive private veteran's transition
programs in the country, and
welcomes people like De Wert
Sailors to volunteer their time
to helping our nation's veterans.
The following day, four

Justin Fussell, Operations
Specialist 2nd Class Bryan
Christensen, and Operations
Specialist 3rd Class Francisco
Morgan, had the honor of car-
rying the Color Guard at the
Boston Bruins hockey game.
The Sailors seemed to swell
with pride for their ship and
country as the crowd gave a
standing ovation with the "Star
Spangled Banner" playing over
the sound system. Much to the
delight of the crowd, the Boston
Bruins beat the Philadelphia
Flyers 3-2 in overtime.
Morgan said, "This was my
first hockey game! The stadium
was packed, and the crowd's
support for the troops and their
team spirit for the Bruins made
it an awesome experience!"
On March 16, the culmi-
nating event of the port visit
occurred at the annual South
Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade.
Approximately 60 of De Wert's
officers and Sailors volunteered
to march in uniform in the
Parade, and not a single person
regretted their participation.
Ensign Cal Todd said, "The
parade was a cool opportuni-
ty to interact with the locals.


Boston is a great city, and the
positive energy of the crowd
and their cheers as we marched
by reminded me of how many
people proudly support our ser-
vice members."
The parade is the second-big-
gest St. Patrick's Day parade
in the country with an aver-
age crowd of 850,000 specta-
tors and 37 bands comprised of
people from Ireland all the way
to Florida. The annual event
takes place in South Boston,
Boston's most Irish neighbor-
hood, and has been headed by
Wacko Hurley, a Navy veteran
and South Boston native, for
more than 40 years. Despite
the chilly 40-degree weather,
Sailors agreed that marching in
the parade was indeed the most
enjoyable part of the De Wert's
stay in Boston.
Despite the promise of warm-
er weather in Mayport, Sailors
were reluctant to leave the great
city that welcomed De Wert
Sailors with such unending hos-
pitality. Each member of the
crew would agree that spending
St. Patrick's Day in Boston is
an experience they will never
forget.

The cameraman interviewed
both mothers and sons, and
asked questions about their
sons' experiences in the Navy.
Yoffe and Dube talked about
how they liked the ship and
their jobs on board it and how
it felt to be home from deploy-

Their mothers, Patty Yoffe

how nice it was to have their

moored in Boston for its four-
day port visit. Several members an - ,
of De Wert's wardroom and

as not to miss such an important
ceremony held on such histori-
cal grounds.
Boyette said, "Reenlisting
on the USS Constitution was
a really unique opportunity. It
filled me with a lot of pride for
our Navy and reminded me of
the importance of our day-to-
day jobs on board De Wert."
In addition to the ship's com-
pany in attendance, tourists
gathered to watch the ceremo-
ny, making their tour of USS
Constitution more impressive
and unforgettable.

Sailors from the Nassau
Expeditionary Strike Group's
guided-missile cruiser, USS
Philippine Sea (CG 58), with
embarked HSL-46 Detachment
Five, and amphibious dock-
landing ship, USS Ashland
(LSD 48) participated in a com-
munity relations event March
15, during a simultaneous port
visit in Souda Bay.
Approximately 48 Sailors
from both ships teamed up to
help the Day Care Center for
Participation of Disabled People
by painting the exterior of the
building and clearing the play-
ground area of weeds and tall
grass.
Lt. Deirdre Green, USS
Philippine Sea's chaplain, orga-
nized the event with the help
of Paul Farley, Naval Support
Activity Souda Bay's public
affairs officer (PAO)
"I went on Navy Knowledge
Online to find the command
chaplain for Souda Bay. He put
us in contact with the PAO of


the base who gave us this won-
derful opportunity," said Green.
"As a chaplain, doing this type
of ministry is an awesome priv-
ilege and an honor to both serve
in the military and serve special
needs children."
Community relations proj-
ects play an important role in a
Sailor's deployment schedule
according to Lt. Jeffrey Quinn,
USS Ashland's chaplain, who
headed the Ashland team.
"We do community relations
projects to get the Sailors off
the ship and in contact with
the local folks so they have the
chance to realize that the locals
are human beings with the same
kind of needs and desires as we
have," said Quinn. "It helps us
share in their culture a little bit
and it helps them get to know
us even though we don't share a
common language."
After a full morning of steady
work, the center's staff set up
a buffet of cakes and freshly
brewed coffee as a way of
thanking the Sailors for all their
hard work.
"We are not fully supported
by the government, so parents


have to pay some money to sup-
port this day center financially,"
said Despina Tzanidaki, occu-
pational therapist for the cen-
ter. "We really appreciate (the
volunteers) being here to help
us make the building look much
better. I'm sure the children and
parents will enjoy it more."
The Sailors said they enjoyed
their day and were happy to do
it.
"The yard work was a little
more than I expected, but I
had a good time doing it," said
Yeoman 2nd Class Michael
Fulcher, USS Philippine Sea.
"It was fun. It's very reward-
ing to see what we accom-
plished for the local community
and the children," said Culinary
Specialist 3rd Class Lillian
Elliot, USS Ashland.
Philippine Sea and Ashland
are part of the Nassau
Expeditionary Strike Group,
currently operating in the
Navy's 6th Fleet area of opera-
tion to support maritime secu-
rity operations and theater secu-
rity cooperation efforts.


Wardog Works His


Way To V%

By MCSN Ryan Steinhour
Nassau Strike Group Public. ; Office
When first arriving to a command one typically
has time to adjust and to get to know the people
and places that you'll be working. When Fire
Controlman Petty Officer 2nd Class Brian Adkins,
of Erin, TN, arrived on guided-missile cruiser
USS Philippine Sea (CG-58), he didn't have time
for either.
A month after reporting to Philippine Sea,
he was on his way to Camp Victory, Iraq as an
Individual Augmentee (IA) to do work with
the Counter Rocket, Artillery, and Mortar Unit.
Adkins took it upon himself to volunteer for
the IA billet, and by doing so set himself up
un-knowingly for the next big step in his Navy
career.
"I was on my IA, and a Naval Academy
Preparatory School (NAPS) officer asked me if
I wanted to apply and that he'd help me, and we
started the application around April of 2007,"
said Adkins. "The package consisted of a couple
officer recommendations, academic review and a
high school transcript."
Philippine Sea announced late February that
Adkins had been selected for the Naval Academy
through the NAPS program, a one-year course to
help prepare students for the rigorous academy
course load.
Gaining admission to the Naval Academy is
no easy feat, and many applicants must resubmit
their packages multiple times, but Adkins had
everything the academy was looking for in an
applicant. Through his motivation and strong
sense of responsibility, Adkins demonstrated all
the characteristics of a future Naval Officer.
"I'm pretty excited. I always get told that peo-
ple don't get picked their first time submitting
a package, so I didn't expect it," said Adkins.
"When the package came through I was pretty
stoked."
"Just talking to FC2 Adkins, you can see he
is the "poster boy" of Navy Core Values. The
young man displays strong character and dem-
onstrates his leadership during daily duties,"
said Philippine Sea Command Master Chief
Christopher Thompson. "It's refreshing to be able


cardroom


to talk to a Sailor that has so much pride in his
country and the service for his country."
Adkins gives the credit to his father, a retired
Chief Gunners Mate, with instilling the pride that
he exhibits today.
"When I was growing up my father always
told me about stuff he used to do in the Navy,"
explained Adkins. "When I got old enough it
seemed like the job and profession I wanted to
pursue."
Now Adkins will get the chance to take his
career in a different direction. After his time at
NAPS, he will continue on to the Naval Academy
as a full-time student, working towards his goal
of being commissioned Naval Officer.
"I am excited for him and his future, I think
he'll do a great job as an officer," said Thompson.
The Commanding Officer, Captain Gary Parriott,
echoed his Command Master Chief's comments,
"He is exactly what we need in our officer ranks
today. The Navy made a wise choice when select-
ing Petty Officer Adkins for the Naval Academy
Preparatory School."

USS Philippine Sea Ensign Hits The Deck


By Ensign Patrick Shelton
USS Philippine Sea PAO
USS Philippine Sea (CG-58)
departed Naval Station Mayport
in February on deployment and
Ensign Laura Jarrett was at the
center of the action.
Even though Jarrett had
only been on board for about a
month, she was assigned duties
as conning officer and tasked to
get USS Philippine Sea under-
way from the pier and take her
to sea. Understandably, Jarrett
was somewhat nervous at the
prospect of conning the ship out
to sea during her first underway.
"I was a bit apprehensive
at first but once the evolution
started I just really focused and
it all turned out well," she said.
Her peers agreed with her
assessment, and they were
favorably impressed by her abil-
ities. The Officer of the Deck
at the time, Lt.j.g. Nicholas
Hoffman was pleased with
Jarrett's performance.
"For a brand new JO with
no previous experience she had
great poise and confidence on
the bridge," Hoffman.
Many first time Conning
Officers would have been dis-
tracted by the sight of numerous
families waving goodbye from
the pier and the general emo-

tional turbulence that goes along able to concentrate on the task
with leaving for a deployment, at hand and overcome the ini-
but not Ensign Jarrett. She was tial anxiety that she felt. USS


Philippine Sea Commanding
Officer, Capt.Gary R. Parriott,
thought it prudent to challenge


Jarrett from the beginning.
"I like all of my Junior
Officers to get actively involved
from the moment they report
aboard," Parriott said. "There
is nothing like conning a war-
ship underway, and for her to
get the chance to do so on her
first underway is really special.
It will be something that she
never forgets."
Much of Jarrett's success
in getting USS Philippine Sea
underway can be attributed to
the meticulous preparations
she made for conning the ship.
Her preparations consisted of
studying the charts and track
data, and training that the
bridge watch team received
at the Naval Shiphandling
Simulation Training (NSST) at
Naval Station Mayport prior to
deployment.
Her preparations started when
she discussed the track and
charts with the Navigator Lt.j.g.
Joe Hamilton. He reviewed
track courses and speeds, navi-
gation aids, ranges, and ensured
Jarrett had an in-depth knowl-
edge and familiarization with
the chart. Additionally, the
watch teams spent several all
day sessions using the realis-
tic bridge simulator to practice
pulling into and getting under-


Running
way from Mayport as well as
various other ports the ship
anticipates visiting during the
deployment.
This excellent training
allowed the Philippine Sea
Junior Officers the chance to
visualize navigational aids and
pick up shiphandling tips for
ports that they will visit either
on deployment or later in their
Naval careers. All of the bridge
watch standers thought that
the training they received was
superb especially Jarrett.
"The simulator helped me
prepare for an actual underway,"
Jarrett said. "If I hadn't had
the training I would have been
overwhelmed when it came to
the day of the evolution."
Jarrett participated in the
Texas A&M University Corps
of Cadets and received her
commission through the Naval
Reserve Officers Training
Corps program. She graduat-
ed in December with a major
in Industrial Engineering and
currently serves as the Repair
Division Officer onboard USS

feeling of disdain. If you want

come to this class. Participants

are related, about irrational

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.

Proud Defender Ready to Defend When Needed


By Ensign Lauren McCabe
USS Taylor PAo
No amount of weather could
prevent USS Taylor from com-
pleting its Force Protection
Certification.
The certification was designed
to prepare ships to combat vari-
ous threats, both while in the
U.S. and overseas. During the
week of Feb. 25, USS Taylor,


along with three other FFGs,
underwent an extensive eval-
uation by Commander Strike
Force Training, Atlantic and
Command Second Fleet.
The certification evaluated
many different aspects of force
protection readiness lasting all
day, through the night and into
following morning. Fatigue
was not the only hurdle Proud


Defender had to overcome.
Rain, unseasonably cold
weather and intense winds
added an uncontrollable element
that at one point threatened the
continuation of the certification.
All through the night the ship
was tested with various mock
asymmetrical land, air and water
borne attacks. Regardless of


fatigue and weather conditions,
USS Taylor's Sailors stood a
vigilant watch.
Two USS Taylor Sailors
were recognized for their out-
standing achievement. While
standing Chief of the Guard,
Fire Controlman 2nd Class
(SW) Joshua Dietrich, Taylor's
Proudest Defender (longest


onboard), was noted as being
the ideal Chief of the Guard,
due to his professionalism and
knowledge of Force Protection.
Also, Sonar Technician
Surface 2nd Class Ritchie
Hernandez expertly identified
and reported a swimmer attack,
preventing an attacker from
placing a simulated explosive
device on Taylor's hull.


After a night of drills, Taylor
completed an impressive 15 of
15 events, scoring outstanding
in 14 of them. These exception-
al results led to Taylor being
certified by Second Fleet in
Anti-Terrorist Force Protection,
showing the true colors of the
ship and crew.

By Ensign Lauren McCabe
USS Taylor PAO
A Search and Rescue (SAR)
Swimmer's training is truly put
to the test when completing the
Navy's required bi-annual SAR
certification.
USS Taylor recently under-
went an extensive series of
administrative checks, equip-
ment checks, small boat and
shipboard rescues and final-
ly, a pool evaluation. Led by
Operations Specialist 2nd
Class (SW) Chris Harold and
Electronics Technician 3rd
Class (SW) Erick Garza and
the Boatswain's Mates of Deck
division, Taylor passes every
wicket with flying colors.
Throughout the training cycle,
Taylor faced the challenge of
training a SAR team that had
many new faces. However, after


six weeks of intensive shipboard
and pool training, the Proud
Defender proved that youth and
inexperience is no match for
motivation and will to succeed.
This certification marks
Harold and Garza's last one on
board. The knowledge, expe-


rience and professionalism is
unmatched. Because of their
teamwork and dedication,
Taylor continues to exceed the
standard, and has demonstrat-
ed once again that the Proud
Defender is ready for any call
of fire.

NAVSO Hosts 2008 Hurricane Planning


Conference For Jacksonville Area


By MC3 Alan Gragg
U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command
Public. ;
Representatives of Navy
commands and ships from
Mayport and Naval Air Station
Jacksonville gathered at Naval
Station Mayport for the 2008
Hurricane Planning Conference
hosted by U.S. Naval Forces
Southern Command (NAVSO)
March 27.
The event took place at the
Afloat Training Group (ATG)
training center, where attendees
received information about how
to handle extreme weather situ-
ations that might occur in hur-
ricane at-risk locations such as
Jacksonville.
NAVSO Meteorology and
Oceanography Officer Lt. Mike
Duensing said the purpose of
the conference was to increase
hurricane readiness for attend-
ees, by helping them prepare for
when a hurricane hits, "because


eventually, it will happen."
The conference also dis-
cussed plans for an upcoming
Hurricane Exercise (HURREX
2008), where a hurricane situa-
tion is simulated so each com-
mand knows what to do in case
a hurricane hits the area.
"Readiness is the key thing,"
said Duensing. "With the
HURREX coming up, it's the
perfect opportunity (for com-
mands) to prepare themselves, to
step through all the procedures."
HURREX 2008 provides ships
and shore commands with a
training scenario to help with
emergency preparedness,
evacuation plans, personnel
accountability, and recovery.
As storms approach each
region, a NAVADMIN (acro-
nym) will be released with an
order to account for personnel,
designating a start time for per-
sonnel accountability and fam-
ily assessment procedures.

How Do I Know If Someone Else Is Using My Tax Info?


By Tom Wallace, Esq.,
Deputy Director ofLegal Assistance for
Region Legal Service Office Southeast
Well, it is tax time. And, with
tax time, our legal assistance
offices are seeing the usual vari-
ety of tax related legal assis-
tance issues. Unfortunately, a
growing problem is filing your
tax return electronically and
having your tax return rejected
because someone has already
filed using your social security
number or the social security
number of one of your depen-
dent children.
Such an occurrence can hap-
pen for a variety of reasons.
Another party could have sim-
ply made a mistake in keying in
a social security number. There
could be a miscommunication
between parties. Such as the
miscommunication that can
occur between divorced spous-
es when there is a mistake as
to which party was going to be
able to claim the common child
as a dependant for the tax year.
And, of course, the phenome-
non that keeps all of us lawyers
employed, plain old fraud.
The first question an indi-
vidual may have is what to do
when the electronic tax form
is rejected for this reason. The
generally accepted advice and
what the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) will tell you is
that you should file your return
by mail and allow the IRS to
sort out the issue through their
normal investigation process.
Of course, this will mean that
eventually you will receive an
IRS notice indicating the prob-
lem and requesting that you
respond to the IRS providing
your side of the story. A bit-
ter irony here is that even if
you are not the party who has
made the mistake or done the
wrongdoing here, your refund,
and this year perhaps your tax
stimulus payment, will be on
hold until the IRS sorts out
the mess. Several clients in
this situation have requested
whether or not the paper return

FFGRON
76 millimeter guns, fire pump
mechanical seals, high pressure
air compressors (HPAC) and
close-in weapons systems.
The HPACs have been one
of the major contributors of
increased maintenance costs,
but after an overhaul and other
corrective maintenance com-
pleted, an estimated $1.8 mil-
lion will be saved annually.
"The list of improvements
is long and impressive," said
Quinn.
Quinn also had a long list of
thanks, including a round of
applause for Sailors from USS
Constitution, who were in atten-
dance in full period uniform.
Constitution's Commanding
Officer, Cmdr. William A.
Bullard III and color guard trav-
eled from Charlestown, Mass.,
where Constitution has been
stationed for over one hundred
years. Constitution is not only
the oldest commissioned ship in
the U.S. Navy, it's also the old-
est frigate.
The ceremony ended with
Reese presenting Bullard with
a personalized commemorative
plaque and Bullard reciprocat-
ing with a 40 millimeter, 200
gram saluting shell that had
been fired from on board the
Constitution.


forwarded by mail should
have a cover letter explaining
the problem. In investigating
this article, I was advised by
the tax expert on staff with the
Office of the Judge Advocate
General, Mr. George Reilly, that
having a cover letter may be
a good idea to raise the issue
and alert the IRS to the need
for further investigation. Of
course, an individual will have
ample opportunity to provide
full details of their story dur-
ing the IRS notice process when
they catch that multiple returns
have used the same social secu-
rity number. A tax return with a
cover letter may expedite that
process somewhat.
Clients almost always want
to know what can happen to the
party that improperly used the
wrong social security number.
Well, of course that depends on
the nature of the mistake. If
someone made a simple unin-
tentional error of mistakenly
typing a wrong number, that is
not a mistake for which some-
one will receive significant (or
possibly even any) penalties.
Civil penalties for the taxpayer
who used the wrong social secu-
rity number are a percentage of
the understatement of tax owed
and interest owed on the return
from the date that the return is
due. If fraud is involved, Mr.
Reilly advises that civil penal-
ties can be significant based on
the nature of the fraud. There
can even be criminal penal-
ties for the fraudulent use of
another's social security num-
ber which could involve crimi-
nal fines or imprisonment. But,
these criminal cases are rare and
involve proving the intentional
elements of a crime. In these
cases, the IRS consults with the
Department of Justice (DOJ)
who would eventually pursue a
criminal case.
Of course, the most frequent
situation that I see as a legal
assistance attorney that involves
a dispute involving multiple


tax returns filed using the same
social security number are when
divorced parents have disagree-
ments over who can claim the
children of the marriage as a
dependent. Typically, the cus-
todial parent is the parent who
will be entitled to claim the
child or children as a depen-
dent. The non-custodial par-
ent can only claim the child if a
four-part test is satisfied.
That four part test is as fol-
lows: (1) The parents are
divorced or legally separat-
ed under a decree of divorce
or separate maintenance or
are separated under a written
separation agreement, or lived
apart at all times during the last
6 months of the year; (2) The
child received over half of his
or her support for the year from
the parents; (3) The child is in
the custody of one or both par-
ents for more than half of the
year; and (4) Either the custo-
dial parent signs a written dec-
laration that he or she will not
claim the child as a dependent
for the year and the noncusto-
dial parent attaches this writ-
ten declaration to his or her
return using IRS Form 8332 or
the pages from a divorce decree
or separation agreement made
after 1984 in which the decree
states that (i) the noncustodial
parent can claim the child as
a dependent without regard to
any condition, such as payment
of support; (ii) The custodial
parent will not claim the child
as a dependent for the year;
and (iii) the years for which the
noncustodial parent, rather than
the custodial parent, can claim
the child as a dependent. Or, in
the case of a pre-1985 decree of
divorce or separate maintenance
or written separation agreement
that is still in effect in 2007,
such decree or agreement states
that the noncustodial parent can
claim the child as a dependent;
the decree or agreement was not
changed after 1984 to say the
noncustodial cannot claim the


child as a dependent; and the
noncustodial parent provides at
least $600 for the child's sup-
port during the year.
All these rules can be found
in Chapter 3 of IRS Publication
17. From the IRS perspective,
only one divorced or legally
separated parent can qualify for
any given child in any one year.
If the "wrong" parent files for
the childrenn, IRS can and will
if notified of the error, re-calcu-
late each parent's tax return and
adjust the tax liability accord-
ingly. Of course that will take
time and, as mentioned above,
the first to file electronically
using the child(ren)'s social
security number bars the other
parent from filing electroni-
cally.
Further, depending on the
case, if a decree or separation
agreement is violated and a
party improperly claims a child
as a dependent contrary to a
divorce decree or agreement,
such action may be the basis
for a contempt action for the
party violating the agreement

or divorce decree. And, finally,
I should also add that in some
of these cases, a social security
number may be being misused
because of identity theft. In
addition to handling such mat-
ter as a tax issue, you may also
need assistance to investigate
and correct a misappropriation
of your identity. Please note,
as always, this article is not to
be relied upon as legal advice
nor take the place of consult-
ing an attorney or tax specialist.

assistance attorney about such

DoD Anti-Tobacco Campaign



Invades Military Markets


THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, April 3, 2008



Fruits, Veggies


Really Do Matter


From TRICARE
The Department of Defense
(DoD) isn't just blowing smoke
about its tobacco cessation cam-
paign. "Quit Tobacco. Make
Everyone Proud" is making its
presence felt with enthusiastic
marketing initiatives in 13 U.S.
metropolitan markets containing
28 major military installations.
"Quit Tobacco" focuses on the
interactive Web site, www.ucan-
quit2.org.
Ucanquit2.org provides help
to Service members wanting
to quit tobacco use and those
helping others quit. The cam-
paign positions military mem-
bers as role models, particular-
ly to children, as a motivation
to quit using tobacco. On the
site, users can get information;
develop a personalized plan for
quitting; play games; listen to
podcasts; connect to Federal,
military, state, local and on-
line cessation programs; and
communicate privately with
a trained cessation counselor
seven days a week from 8:30
p.m.-2:30 a.m. (EST).
"Kicking the habit can be
tougher than a lot of people
think. Aside from the obvious


nicotine dependency, psycho-
logical barriers may be just as
difficult to overcome," said
Assistant Secretary of Defense
(Health Affairs) S. Ward
Casscells, MD, in a recent blog
on www.health.mil. "The 'Quit
Tobacco. Make Everyone
Proud' campaign is designed
to help Service members quit
by reminding them to do it for
themselves and the people they
love."
The social marketing initia-
tive for the tobacco cessation
campaign targets 702,000 mili-
tary Active Duty personnel,
junior enlisted E-1 through
E-4s. Marketing and advertis-
ing placements include major
Web presence on www.mili-
tary.com, mobile and station-
ary billboards, direct mailings
to 160,000 Active Duty, radio
public service announcements,
and paid ads in Military Times
and Stars & Stripes newspapers.
There are also placements in
commercial theaters, on pizza
delivery boxes, and gas pump
toppers at commercial locations
within five miles of targeted
military installations.
According to a DoD survey


of health-related behaviors
among junior enlisted Active
Duty military personnel, the
prevalence of smoking among
18-25 year olds was significant-
ly higher than for their civil-
ian counterparts, as well as for
older, higher ranking Service
members. Tobacco use costs
DoD an estimated $1.6 billion a
year in additional medical care
through increased hospitaliza-
tion, missed work days, and
decreased night vision among
others. Ultimately, tobacco
use affects military readiness.
Eliminating harmful tobacco
products keeps Service mem-
bers at their best and "fit to
fight."
"Every year tobacco use
leads to unnecessary compro-
mises in the readiness of our
troops and costs the Department
of Defense millions of dollars
in preventable health care costs.
I am personally encouraging
all Service members who use
tobacco to visit ucanquit2.org
and open an account," said Dr.
Casscells on his blog. "Develop
your own quit plan."
According to a DoD survey
of health-related behaviors

Docs Just Like To Give Shots


By Lt. Sheldon Knight
NH Jax Family Medicine
Residency Program
If you ask most young chil-
dren why they hate going to
the doctor it is because that is
where they get shots. While
children receive multiple vac-
cines as they grow up, the num-
ber of vaccines that teenagers
and adults receive is quite small,
but it is not zero. One of those
vaccines is the flu shot.
In the fall of 2006 the U.S.
government announced a short-
age of influenza (flu) vaccines
and required the vaccine be
given to only those who were at
high risk for developing severe
complications from the disease.
Even though this winter season
there is not a shortage, many
questions still exist about the
disease and the vaccine.
What is the flu?
Influenza is a contagious
respiratory illness caused by
influenza viruses. It can cause
mild to severe illness, and at
times can lead to death.
What are the symptoms of the
flu?
The flu is different from
a cold. The symptoms come
on suddenly and may include
fever (usually high), headache,
extreme tiredness, dry cough,
sore throat, runny or stuffy
nose, muscle aches, stomach
symptoms; i.e. nausea, vomit-
ing, diarrhea
How can I prevent contract-
ing the flu?
Get a yearly flu vaccination.
Practice good health habits; i.e.
avoid close contact with people
who are sick, stay home when
sick, cover mouth and nose
when coughing or sneezing,
clean your hands, avoid touch-
ing eyes, nose, or mouth, get
plenty of sleep, be physically
active, manage stress, drink
plenty of fluids, eat nutritious
food. If you smoke, quit smok-
ing.
What is the flu vaccine?


There are two types of vac-
cines. The "shot" is an inacti-
vated virus (containing killed
virus) that is given with a
needle. It should be used for
patients older than 6 months.
The other type is the nasal-
spray which contains attenu-
ated (weakened) live virus. The
spray is administered by a nasal
sprayer and should be used only
for healthy people ages 2-49
who are not pregnant.
Why should I get vaccinated?
Influenza is a serious disease,
and people of any age can get it.
In an average year, flu causes
36,000 deaths and more than
200,000 hospitalizations in the
United States.
When should I get the vac-
cine?
Flu season runs from
November to May. You should
try to get the vaccine in October
or November but can get it in
December or later since the sea-
son lasts so long.
Should everyone get the vac-
cine?
It is recommended that every-
one get the vaccine but certain
populations are highly recom-
mended to get it: Children
between 6 months until age 5,
pregnant women, people 50
years of age and older, people
of any age with certain chronic
medical conditions (i.e. asthma,
diabetes, or heart disease), peo-
ple who live in nursing homes
and other long term care facili-
ties and household contacts of
persons with listed criteria. Also
included are household contacts
and out of home caregivers of
children less than 6 months of
age and healthcare workers.
Who should not get the vac-
cine?
People who have a severe
allergic reaction to chicken eggs
or a previous flu shot, a history
of Guillain-Barr6 Syndrome, or
younger than 6 months should
first consult a physician. If you
have a moderate or severe ill-


ness with a fever you should
wait to get vaccinated until your
symptoms improve.
What are the side effects of
the vaccine?
The shot causes very few side
effects that are usually localized
to site of the injections and con-
sist of soreness, redness, and or
swelling. Low grade fever may
occur and last one to two days.
In children, the nasal spray may
cause runny nose, headache,
wheezing, vomiting, muscle
aches, and fever. In adults it
may cause runny nose, head-
ache, sore throat, and cough.
Can the shot give me the flu?
No the shot is an inactivated
vaccine and cannot give you the
flu.
If I get the vaccine, can I still
get the flu?
If you were exposed to the
virus before getting the vaccine
or you were exposed to a strain
of the virus that is not covered
by the vaccine, or if you have
a weakened immune symptom
you may still contract the flu.
What do I do if I develop flu-
like symptoms?
Flu symptoms are very sim-
ilar to other conditions and a
doctor's exam is needed to tell
whether you have developed the
flu or a complication of the flu.
Those at high risk of develop-
ing complications from the flu
(65 years-old or greater; chronic
medical conditions, i.e., asth-
ma, diabetes, or heart disease;
pregnant women; and young
children) should contact their
health-care provider.
Where can I get the vaccine?
At the Branch Health Clinics
(active duty) or the Family
Medicine Clinic located on the
second floor of the hospital's
outpatient wing.
This article is part of a con-
tinuing series of health care
related articles. Dr. Knight
received his D.O. from
TUCOM. He is a physician at
the Naval Hospital.


among junior enlisted Active
Duty military personnel, the
prevalence of smoking among
18-25 year olds was significant-
ly higher than for their civil-
ian counterparts, as well as for
older, higher ranking Service
members. Tobacco use costs
DoD an estimated $1.6 billion a
year in additional medical care
through increased hospitaliza-
tion, missed work days, and
decreased night vision among
others. Ultimately, tobacco
use affects military readiness.
Eliminating harmful tobacco
products keeps Service mem-
bers at their best and "fit to
fight."
"Every year tobacco use
leads to unnecessary compro-
mises in the readiness of our
troops and costs the Department
of Defense millions of dollars
in preventable health care costs.
I am personally encouraging
all Service members who use
tobacco to visit ucanquit2.org
and open an account," said Dr.
Casscells on his blog. "Develop
your own quit plan."

From Health Promotion by the
Ocean
According to the CDC,
almost everyone needs to eat
more fruits and vegetables.
Unfortunately, fewer than
one-third of adult Americans
eat the amount of fruits and
vegetables that the govern-
ment recommends. And, the
trend has remained steady for
the last decade.
Research shows that fruits
and vegetables are critical
to promoting good health.
Fruits and vegetables contain
essential vitamins, minerals,
and fiber that may help pro-
tect you from chronic diseas-
es. Compared with people
who consume a diet with
only small amounts of fruits
and vegetables, those who
eat more generous amounts
as part of a healthful diet are
likely to have reduced risk
of chronic diseases, includ-
ing stroke and perhaps other
cardiovascular diseases, and
certain cancers.
Fruits and vegetables come
in terrific colors and flavors,
but their real beauty lies in
what's inside. All varieties
of each offer many vitamins,
minerals and other natural
substances that may help

protect you from chronic dis-
eases.
To get a healthy variety,
think color. Eating fruits and
vegetables of different col-
ors gives your body a wide
range of valuable nutrients,
like fiber, folate, potassium,
and vitamins A and C.
Some examples include
green spinach, orange sweet
potatoes, black beans, yel-
low corn, purple plums,
red watermelon, and white
onions. For more variety,
try new fruits and vegetables
regularly and prepare them
differently.
Busy lives can benefit
from food that's nutritious,
yet easy to eat on-the-go, like
fresh fruits and vegetables.
Fruits and vegetables are a
natural source of energy and
give the body many nutri-
ents you need to keep going
throughout the day. They are
also both great snack options.
Make a commitment to select
more fruits and vegetables
for your health today.
If you are interested in
reading more about the rec-
ommended fruit and vege-
table servings for you, go to
MyPyramid.gov.

riential skill development in
the domains that research has
shown to be necessary in the
development, selection, imple-
mentation, and evaluation of
effective substance abuse pre-
vention programs. The five
domains used as the basis for all
course work are as follows:
*Planning and evaluation
*Education and skill develop-
ment
*Community organization
*Public and organizational
policy
*Professional growth and
development
Additionally, this 80-hour
course provides the formal edu-
cation component necessary for
certification as a certified pre-
vention specialist (CPS). The
CPS credential is a stand alone
certification separate and dis-
tinct from the counselor certifi-
cations alcohol and drug coun-
selor (ADC I & II), and certified
clinical supervisor (CCS).
Effective performance as a
prevention professional requires
skills and attitudes unique and
distinct from those required in
treatment.
Prevention specialist course
students who have completed
the course shared that they
experienced a paradigm shift
that aided them to better employ
prevention techniques at their
local commands. Please pass
