NS Mayport Wildlife Officer Art Burt and Interior Communications 2nd Class Paul Fenn hold a
three-foot i ,illsna,,i' found at the Wind)y Harbor Golf Club last week. Another snake, similar in size,
was found only a few days later sunning on the patio of the club. Burt said the warm weather is mak-

Warm Weather Perfect


For Mayport's Snakes


By MC2 Regina L. Brown
Fleet Pubhlic Center Detachment
Southeast
With all the warm weather in
store for the Jacksonville area in
the upcoming spring and sum-
mer months, rattlesnake season
isn't far behind, according to
Naval Station Mayport Wildlife
Officer Art Burt.
This cold-blooded animal
will sun itself in warm areas
and tends to take shelter in cool,
dark areas. Piles of trash, low-
lying plant brush, equipment
and children's toys in the yard
make great hiding places for
rattlesnakes, Burt said.


Keeping these items picked
up and away from buildings and
residential areas is imperative
for preventing rattlesnakes from
nesting in those areas.
These snakes are not aggres-
sive and usually flee when
approached by humans, but they
are poisonous and will strike
when it feels threatened.
Rattlesnakes have the capa-
bility of striking up to two-
thirds of its body length, with-
out having to pull their body
back before striking. They can
inject hemotoxic venom which
destroys tissue and organs and
can lead to loss of limb and per-


manent scarring.
If you are bitten by a snake,
do not attempt to treat it your-
self. Stay calm and go to the
nearest medical facility for
treatment or call for emergency
medical assistance.
Do not try to catch a rattle-
snake! If you happen to come
upon one on the naval station,
the best policy is to stay back,
keep it in view and call Burt at
219-2178 during the hours of
7 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday-Friday,
or after working hours, call
Security Dispatch at 270-5583.

as commanding officer of the
HSL-42 "Proud Warriors" dur-
ing a ceremony held in HSL-
42's aircraft hangar on April 4.
The ceremony marked the
end of a successful tour for
Skiff, under whose leader-

consecutive awards for Battle
Efficiency and CNAL Retention
Excellence, the fourth consecu-
tive air-wing Talon Award for
superior mission accomplish-
ment in anti-submarine warfare
and the Captain Arnold J. Isbell
Trophy for excellence in anti-
submarine warfare.
Skiff's tour at HSL-42 caps
a flying career that began in
1990 following his gradua-
tion from the Virginia Military
Institute. His sea assignments
include tours with the HSL-37
"Easyriders," USS Essex (LHD
2), and HSL-43 "Battlecats,"
and shore assignments with

Having served as executive
officer of the Proud Warriors
for the past 16 months, Gordon
is intimately familiar with the
workings of the squadron. In
his remarks, he thanked many
people who have influenced and
guided him throughout his life.
He said that the ceremony is
about a change in leadership
from one commanding officer
to another, but to him it is "an
opportunity for us to recognize
the great accomplishments of
Skiff and also a chance to rec-

Starting out with a warm
"welcome back" to the men
and women of USS Simpson
and embarked crew of HSL-46
Detachment Seven who returned
last week from a successful six-
month counter-narco-terrorism
deployment.
The crew deployed to the
U.S. Southern Command area of
operations and prevented more
than 15 tons of cocaine from
reaching our city streets. These
busts included the apprehension
of 15 narco-terrorists and the
take down of two self propelled
semi-submersible vessels; two
"go fast" boats and one logis-
tical supply vessel. Well done
to all, we are all very proud of
your efforts.
Lots of traffic related issues
going on: 1) Ground has offi-
cially been broken for the
Mayport Road improvement
project. Be patient as you drive
through the construction, the
end product is going to be awe-

2) Lane changes are still
ongoing as we enter the last

ect. It's going to be great to get

Before I close, I want to thank
our Emergency Management
Director Steve Millican and
everyone who participated in
our recent HURREX. The drill
brought out several lessons
learned and will ultimately help
us keep everything together in
case Mother Nature decides to
give us a bad hand this year.
Now is the time to check on


your own hurricane readiness,
and talk to your family about
your plan of action in the case
we come to the point where
we need to evacuate the base.
Careful preparation and plan-
ning pays off when disaster
strikes.
I also want to thank every-
one who turned out for MWR's
5K/3K walk and stroller strut
last week. We have the best
MWR in the Navy in my hum-
ble opinion, and I appreciate
the support you give to the pro-
gram. Our May 13 run will be
the 5K/10K Armed Forces run
and we are going to be fortunate
to have with us the American
record holder of the 15K, two-
time Olympian, and five-time
winner of the Gate River Run,
Todd Williams. Todd will run
with us and also have a clinic
on running. Check out his web-
site at http://www.pushthepace.

Thank you for all that you
do, and please keep those the
questions coming in by email

or at our new CO's suggestion
box located on the quarterdeck
inside Building One. Your con-
cerns are my concerns.


CREDO Corner


By Lt. Rickey Bennett
Spiritual Fitness Division SE
Unfortunately, many people
in desperate marriages base
their lives upon commonly held
myths. Let us expose some of
these myths as well as provide
challenges for you to take con-
structive action in your mar-
riage.
Myth #l1
The first myth is the idea that
my state of mind and the quality
of my marriage is determined
by my environment. "I grew
up in a dysfunctional family,
so I am destined to failure in
my relationships." This kind
of approach leaves one help-
less. Our environment certainly
affects us, but it does not con-
trol us. You can keep a positive
spirit even in a bad marriage,
which will affect your emotions
and your actions. God can give
peace of mind even in the worst
of situations. How we live our
life is a choice.
Myth #2
You've probably heard this
one: "People cannot change."
This myth fails to realize the
reality of human freedom and
the power of God. History is
filled with accounts of people
who have made radical chang-
es in their behavior. From St.
Augustine, who once lived for
pleasure and thought his desires

were inescapable, to Charles
Colson, the Watergate crimi-
nal who repented and began an
international agency to offer
prisoners spiritual help, the
record is clear: People can and
do change, and often the chang-
es are dramatic! Don't give up
on yourself or your spouse. God
is in the business of changing
lives. Begin with prayer, and
believe that God can and will
change you and your spouse.
Myth #3
"When you are in a bad
marriage, there are only two
options: be miserable for life, or
get out." This myth limits one's
horizons to two equally dev-
astating alternatives. But there
is always something you can
do to improve a marriage. You
can be a positive change agent
in your marriage. Being miser-
able or getting out are not your
only options, and there are lov-
ing solutions even in desperate
marriages.
Myth #4
"Some situations are hope-
less." Have you said those
words? Have you believed
them? The person who believes
this myth usually also con-
cludes, "My situation is hope-
less. Perhaps there is hope for
others, but my marriage is hope-
less. It has gone on too long: the
hurt is too deep." This kind of

thinking leads to depression and
sometimes suicide.
God is the God of hope.
When you put your hand in His
hand, He will lead you through
the valley of despair into the
plane of hope. With God no one
and no situation is hopeless.
Focus your eyes on Him rather
than your situation.
Myth #5
"It is a sign of weakness to
ask for help." An avoidance to
ask for help is actually more
of a sign of pride whose per-
spectives and interpretations
may not have any basis in real-
ity. Pride proceeds failing and
humility proceeds succeeding.
We all need help every now
and then, financial, spiritual,
physical and emotional help
that comes from others to get
us through difficult times in our
lives. Many of us are unable to
recognize when help is need-
ed or reluctant to ask for the
help that others can provide. To
many of us it is a sign that we
are weak. We become reluctant
to ask and try to do it ourselves
or else abandon the thought and
give up. We are missing out on
so many opportunities due to
our fear to ask others to lend
a hand. Asking for help is not
a sign of weakness, but rather
shows insight in knowing how
to achieve the goal.

years of service.


CPOs Celebrate 115 Years


By ISC David Stanton
USS The Sullivans
April 1st, 1893. It's a date
that most folks don't think
about that often. Even within
the Navy, there are some who
don't know of its significance.
However, to us it's one of the
most important days in history.
It's the day we were bom. We,
the Chief Petty Officer Mess of
the United States Navy.
We were created to ensure
that the Navy would survive
after we left it. Our traditions
and sacrifices have continued to
strengthen us through numerous
conflicts, which at times threat-
ened our very existence as a free
nation. We continue to shape
tomorrow's Chiefs every day by
taking care of our Sailors.
On board USS The Sullivans
(DDG 68) we celebrated the
best possible way we could. We
were underway. The seas were


not being very friendly, and
the wind was making its pres-
ence known. Each Chief Petty
Officer on board that day awoke
and donned their wash khaki
uniform, a uniform typically
not worn underway. We also
donned black ties, which hasn't
been a part of the wash khaki
uniform for decades. But there
was a method to our madness,
we love and respect our tradi-
tions so much that we wanted
to look like the CPOs of old.
We all donned our combination
covers and stepped out onto the
weatherdecks to take a picture
in this nostalgic uniform. Our
ship's flag was there, as well
as our traditional weapon, the
cutlass. Some of us held cof-
fee cups for the picture, some
even had cigars. All symbols of
our traditions, our heritage, and
everything we love about being
a Chief Petty Officer.


After about 20 minutes of
picture taking one might think
that would not suffice to cel-
ebrate a birthday. However,
USS The Sullivans was under-
way, and we needed to go back
to doing what Chief's do best,
taking care of Sailors. There
isn't a Sailor in the Navy today
that hasn't been trained by a
Chief Petty Officer. From the
CNO down to the young man
or woman who just arrived at
Great Lakes, they all have been
trained and will all be trained by
a Chief. We gladly, and without
hesitation, take on this respon-
sibility. We are proud to carry
on our traditions because we
understand we are part of one
of the largest fraternities in the
world. And wherever you go in
the Navy you will continue to
hear. "Ask the Chief!"

Throughout the past year,
Commander, Navy Region
Southeast (CNRSE) person-
nel have been introduced to the
concepts and practices of Lean
Six Sigma (LSS) a program
designed to improve the way we
do our work, eliminate defects
in our daily operations, and help
us achieve significant savings in
both dollars and human resourc-
es.
The first step to a success-
ful LSS implementation is the
training of personnel who will
both lead and execute projects
throughout the region. Karol
Higginbotham, LSS program
manager for CNRSE, and
Richard Horne, Commander,
Navy Installations Command
(CNIC), are both LSS Black
Belts who have completed five
weeks of specialized training in
LSS analytical techniques and
statistics. Home is assigned to
CNRSE and will be responsi-
ble for the mentoring of Green
Belts, who are expected to lead
three to four projects per year
within regional commands.
Training for additional CNRSE
Green Belt candidates is slat-
ed for April, June, and July. In
January, 18 Project Champions,
who are assigned to installa-
tions and CNRSE headquarters,
also completed LSS training,
and will provide leadership to
LSS projects as process owners.
Rounding out the level of
skill necessary to serve on LSS
project teams are 263 Yellow
Belts, who will potentially be
called upon to work on LSS
projects.
"We reached a strategic pause
in our LSS implementation,"
said Jim Rountree, CRNSE
regional business manager.
Once we had people trained, it
was time to take a look at where


Implementation


we could put their knowledge
and skills to use in the field."
That strategic pause ended
Feb. 12 when CNRSE staff
members were joined by rep-
resentatives from throughout
the region for a three-day High
Impact Core Value Stream
(HICV) workshop held at NAS
Jacksonville. This workshop
was designed to identify future
LSS project opportunities from
four Core Value Streams Force
Protection, Morale, Recreation
and Welfare (MWR), Fleet and
Family Services, and Human
Resources through feedback
collected from installation com-
manding officers and other pro-
gram participants in January.
During this process, 16 installa-
tions and the headquarters staff
provided detailed information
about areas where gaps between
current performance and desired
performance based on resourc-
es, customer requirements, and
quality are greatest. Their input
provided a total of 34 potential
LSS projects to be tackled by
Green Belts, giving them real-
time application of the LSS
tools they received in training.
Draft project charters and out-
lines of each project's Suppliers,
Inputs, Processes, Outputs, and
Customers (SIPOCs) were also
created during the workshop.
These projects include:
*Human Resources Delivery
Service Model
*National Security Personnel
System Compensation
Outdoor Recreation
Programs
*Golf Program Operations
and Staffing
*Streamlining Business Rules
*Force Protection
*Security Vehicles
*Individual Augmentee (IA)
Case Management
Monthly tollgate, or execu-
tion review of all LSS proj-


ects, is one of the components
of the LSS Review Board
(LSSRB) meetings, the first
of which was held March 11.
The LSSRB membership con-
sists of the CNRSE Executive
Director Bruce Cwalina, Rear
Adm. Hugo Blackwood, one
installation commanding offi-
cer representative, and the N1,
N3, N5, N6, N7, N8, N9, and
N52 department heads. In addi-
tion, the LSSRB also reviews
and approves project propos-
als, assign belts to projects, and
submits program recommenda-
tions to the Commander.
Other actions of the LSSRB
include review of applications
for Black Belt and Green Belt
training. Annette Higgins of
Air Operations and Brett Tracy
of Fleet Readiness were the lat-
est candidates selected to attend
five weeks of Black Belt train-
ing. After they have completed
the course, they will be able to
lead complex Black Belt proj-
ects and to mentor CNRSE
Green Belts.
"It's important for everyone
to realize that LSS implemen-
tation is a journey, with no set
ending point," said Rountree.
Guidance for all hands regard-
ing the purpose, policy, respon-
sibilities, and action for the
CNRSE LSS program is now
available in the LSS Instruction
5220, which was signed out by
Rear Adm. Michael C. Vitale
April 1.
In our next article, we'll
examine one of the LSS proj-
ects currently in progress
- Cell Phone Procurement/
Replacement and illustrate
how LSS tools have improved
efficiency, created savings, and
are better supporting the Fleet,
Fighter, and Family.

In doing so, a Green Belt
will ensure the warfighter has

FRCSE Awarded For Collaboration


By AT2 (AW)
Krystal Smith
FRCSEPAO LPO
Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast (FRCSE) was pre-
sented with the Contractor-
Military Collaboration of the
Year Award on March 31 at the
depot facility.
FRCSE Commanding Officer,
Capt. Timothy S. Matthews,
along with Glenn Dubrucq
and Mark Fruits, both F/A-
18 FIRST program managers,
accepted the award on behalf of
FRCSE.
FRCSE partners with the
Boeing Company on the F/A-
18E/F Integrated Readiness


Support Teaming (FIRST) pro-
gram. FIRST assists FRCSE
with stand up capability of
many components for the E/F
platform such as pylons, missile
adapters, fuel pumps, radomes,
gun drive units, and fire extin-
guishers.
The Boeing Company also
partners with FRCSE under a
performance based logistics
contract to rework these com-
ponents once capabilities for
the components are established.
They supply material, technical
support, and other services, as
required, to support the rework
of these components.
"This is a win, win, win sit-


nation; a win for FRC, a win
for Boeing, and most impor-
tantly a win for the Warfighter,"
Matthews said. "Because when
the pilots get inside these jets,
they know they're in a better
product."
The Contractor-Military
Collaboration Award is one
of several awards given at
the annual Defense Logistics
Conference. The Defense
Logistics Awards recognizes
and promotes logisticians in the
U.S. Department of Defense
and the defense industry who
have made significant contribu-
tions to military logistics.

Bowls Perfect 300


THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, April 17, 2008 7


By Ensign Peter Goodman
USSKlakring Public, ,,
In sports, there are some
accomplishments that eclipse
all others: grand slams, holes-
in-one, perfect games. USS
Klakring (FFG 42) Executive
Officer, Lt. Cmdr. Gary Jones,
reached one of these pinna-
cles of sports achievement by
bowling a perfect 300 score
in Commander's Cup League
play at Mayport Naval Station's
bowling alley on March 26.
Klakring's team, comprised
of Lt. Cmdr. Jones, Ensign Jean
C. Tahhan, CWO3 Michael
Kadlubowski, and Boatswain's
Mate Seaman John Parapon,
have performed well all season,
coming into the March 26 match
ranked third in league play.
As the match progressed


MWR


Looks


For Star
By MC2(SW)
Matthew D. Leistikow
Fleet Public. -- Center Atlantic
Morale, Welfare and
Recreation (MWR) brought 11
service members to Norfolk to
audition for NBC's "Nashville
Star" during a film casting for
the show aboard the amphibious
assault ship USS Iwo Jim (LHD
7) in Norfolk, April 12.
While they were having the
opportunity to live a dream,
MWR wanted those service
members to feel like the stars
they could be, if only for a day.
"They just kind of catered
to us, which is a far cry from
being in the military 20 years,
having someone caterer to you
24/7 is kind of a change," said
Aviation Structural Mechanic
(Equipment) 1st Class (AW)
Gary Buckaloo. "I think it's
nice that the military would
actually take the time to iden-
tify certain talent in their ranks
and allow them the latitude to
go try and fulfill your dreams.
It's just awesome that (the mil-
itary) would take the time to
make us feel so welcome and so
special."
MWR worked to carry the
experience farther by offer-
ing a host of VIP treats to the
potential TV stars. The hope-
ful contestants received facials,
manicures, a $50 gift card for
the local Navy Exchange, free
meals and even a massage.
"MWR has put so much faith
in us and so much time into
pushing what we want to do,"
said Machinist's Mate Fireman
Apprentice Tommy Stanley,
who was flown from the air-
craft carrier USS Kitty Hawk
(CV 63) in Japan to audition.
"Seeing us support our country
as much as we do, seeing we
love our country so much this
is what we're doing; it's like
they're giving it back in return
by helping us."
The creature comforts they
received even helped the hope-
ful "Nashville Star" contestants
prepare for their auditions.
"I played guitar for 11 years
so my hands are a big thing
to me and it's important for
my hands to look nice," said
Stanley after his first manicure.
"I was looking at my hands, and
they look amazing compared to
what they looked like earlier."
After their day of comfort, the
11 singers received one last spe-
cial treat in the form of meeting
"Nashville Star's" host, Billy
Ray Cyrus, on the morning of
their audition.
Cyrus briefly met with each
service member and signed
autographs.
Even though he's only the
host, and not a judge, Cyrus said
each of the service members
auditioning has a real chance to
succeed.
"Without a doubt the next
'Nashville Star' could have been
in this room," said Cyrus. "It
could very well be one of these

recalled Jones. "I let the ball
go on that last bowl, and didn't
even watch it. I saw from the
reaction of the crowd that I'd

Gettysburg Physical Fitness Inspires Sailors


By Lt.j.g. Dennis Panos
USS Gettysburg PAO
At 3 p.m. on Tuesday and
Thursday afternoons USS
Gettysburg Sailors can be seen
pushing deck and jumping for
the sky during Gettysburg's
command physical fitness train-
ing.
The physical training program,
led by the Command Fitness
Leader Chief Boatswain's Mate
Jamie Hamilton, supports the
Navy's goal of having fit Sailors
year round.
The exercise regime, which
emphasizes both strength and
endurance training, begins with
a vigorous calisthenics course
led by Hamilton and Petty
Officer 2nd Class Valerie Booty.
Booty challenges the
Gettysburg crew through a vari-
ety of strenuous exercises that
range from pushing deck on the
blacktop to eight count body
builders.
While the workout is tough,
Ship's Servicemen 3rd Class
David Watts said it inspires
him.
"Seeing your peers push
themselves during the workouts
really drives me to give 110 per-
cent," he said.


-Photos courtesy of USS Gettysburg
USS Gettysburg crewmembers run laps around the pier during the
command physical training program.


The drive exhibited by Watts
runs throughout all the crew.
After the dynamic strength
workout, Gettysburg Sailors
then face either endurance or
speed running sessions.
During the endurance runs
it is common for Gettysburg's
Commanding Officer, Capt.
Rich Brown, to lead the crew on


a spirited run around the basin.
On other occasions the endur-
ance runs are run at a depart-
mental level, which fosters
camaraderie and leadership
within the ship's departments.
The endurance runs are long
and tough, but the speed ses-
sions are dreaded as former
Naval Academy track captain,


USS Gettysburg crewmembers do crunches on the pier. The ship's exercise regime pairs strength and
endurance training with cardio.


Lt.j.g. Lauren Baker, has some
creative and extremely tough
training methods.
Besides raising the fitness
standards of the Sailors aboard
the Ship, Gettysburg's physical


fitness program has the added
benefit of promoting camarade-
rie across divisions and ranks.
The shared time on the pier
allows Sailors, who often work
in far-flung work centers, to see


shipmates in a shared environ-
ment. With the upcoming semi-
annual fitness test, Gettysburg
also anticipates the workouts
will pay dividends in fitness
results.

accomplished a great deal of
very valuable training."


In addition to the myriad
training required by the sched-
ule, units were afforded time
to complete critical Unit Level
Training (ULT) events. These
events included seamanship,
mobility, self-defense, engineer-
ing and combat systems exer-
cises designed to complete crew
training requirements.
As part of the ULT exercises,
TRCSG units conducted refu-
eling at sea operations, tow-
ing exercises, search and sei-
zure exercises, general quarters
drills, and crew-served weapon


live firing events. The comple-
tion of these key training ele-
ments allows TRCSG to move
on to more advanced integrated
training.
"The Unit Level Training was
a big success," said Lt. Kenneth
Myrick, Destroyer Squadron
22 intelligence officer. "It was
important for us to be success-
ful because we [need to prepare]
ourselves as a Strike Group. It
is important for us to be able to
work together as a team instead
of as individual ships. We were
very successful at doing [both]


this underway."
The successful integration of
the TRCSG ships was matched
by the superb performance of
CAW 8. This was the airwing's
first extended underway with
TR.
"One of the major challenges
we faced from an airwing per-
spective was the completion of
multi-role missions," said Lt.
j.g. Michael Tremel, assigned
to the "Tomcatters" of Strike
Fighter Squadron 31. "I think
we did a great job as an entire
Strike Group; now we just need


Navy Launches Earhart n


From Military Sealft Command Public

USNS Amelia Earhart, the
newest ship in the U.S. Navy's
Lewis and Clark-class of dry
cargo/ammunition ships owned
and operated by Military
Sealift Command (MSC), was
launched April 6 during a night-
time ceremony at the General
Dynamics NASSCO shipyard
in San Diego.
The 689-foot ship, designated
T-AKE 6, slid into the water for
the first time with red, white
and blue streamers flowing from
its bow and fireworks light-
ing the sky overhead. Among
the nearly 1,000 people pres-
ent at the event were U.S. Rep.
Susan Davis of California, MSC
Commander Rear Adm. Robert
Reilly Jr. and Logistics Group
Western Pacific Commander
Rear Adm. Nora Tyson.
"Being able to refuel at sea is
essential to our Navy's ability to
be forward deployed and remain
strong in our global endeavors,"
said Davis. "Today we bring
this ship to life, and I look for-
ward to the day we welcome
her to the fleet."
USNS Earhart is the sixth
ship in the Navy's new T-
AKE class. These ships deliver
ammunition, provisions, spare
parts, potable water and petro-
leum products to the Navy's
carrier strike groups at sea and


other naval forces worldwide,
allowing them to stay at sea,
on station and combat ready for
extended periods of time.
USNS Earhart is named
in honor of aviation pioneer
Amelia Earhart, who was the
first woman to be awarded the
Distinguished Flying Cross. She
received the award after com-
pleting a solo flight across the
Atlantic Ocean. Earhart disap-
peared in 1937 over the central
Pacific Ocean during an attempt
to circumnavigate the globe.
Earhart's niece, Amy
Kleppner, served as the ship's
sponsor, breaking a bottle of
champagne across the bow
to formally christen the ship
"Amelia Earhart."
"This ship was built specifi-
cally to support the fleet, and
we are ready to show what it
can do," said Capt. John Pope,
USNS Earhart's civil service
master. "It's an honor to be
the first master of a ship like
Amelia Earhart."
USNS Earhart will be crewed
by 124 civil service mariners
working for Military Sealift
Command. The ship will also
have a military detachment of
11 U.S. Navy Sailors to provide
supply coordination.
Construction began on USNS
Earhart in December 2006,
and the ship is scheduled to
deliver to the Navy later this
year. The Navy expects to build


14-TAKEs, the first eleven of
which will serve as combat
logistics ships. The remaining
three are expected to be part of
the Maritime Prepositioning
Force (Future). All 14 of the
ships will be owned and oper-
ated by the Navy's Military
Sealift Command.
MSC operates approximately
110 noncombatant, civilian-
crewed ships that replenish U.S.
Navy ships, conduct specialized
missions, strategically preposi-
tion combat cargo at sea around
the world and move military
cargo and supplies used by
deployed U.S. forces and coali-
tion partners.


YOUR CLOSEST PROVIDER:


to continue to mesh together and
continue to work as a team."
With this group sail complet-
ed, TRCSG is now preparing
for their upcoming Composite
Training Unit Exercise, the next
qualification in the pre-deploy-
ment phase.

Nassau Hosts 'DC Olympics'


By MCSA
Jonathan Pankau
USS Nassau (LHA 4) Public, ;
The amphibious assault ship
USS Nassau (LHA 4) hosted
multinational service members
from 10 countries for damage
control training and demonstra-
tions during Exercise Phoenix
Express 2008 (PE 08) in Souda
Bay on April 10.
In addition to the Nassau's
crew, Sailors from the amphibi-
ous transport dock ship USS
Nashville (LPD 13), the guided
missile frigate USS John L. Hall
(FFG 32), and multinational
service members from nations
around the Mediterranean Sea
participated in the "Damage
Control Olympics."
"Each team competes in dam-
age control events to see who
can get the best time," Nassau


Damage Control Assistant Lt.
Cmdr. Scott Gray said. "The
real reward is the time spent
together and collaborative
efforts in training our multina-
tional partners to learn these
necessary skills."
Training events included
relay races, operating portable
fire pumps, and setting up de-
smoking fans. There were also
demonstrations showing the use
of portable hydraulic access and
rescue equipment and the self-
contained breathing apparatus.
Damage Controlman 3rd
Class Joseph Mendel said shar-
ing information, techniques,
and training practices among
multinational partners is a criti-
cal part of PE 08.
"It's important to collaborate
with all these countries because
all of us have so many differ-


ent ways to go about shipboard
firefighting," Mendel said. "If
there's a more efficient way
to go about shipboard damage
control, this exercise pools all
of our thoughts together."
PE 08 is the third annual
exercise in a long-term effort
to enhance regional coopera-
tion and maritime security. The
principal aim is to increase
interoperability by developing
individual and collective mari-
time proficiencies of participat-
ing nations.
Exercises like PE 08 enable
participants to advance informa-
tion sharing which is crucial to
maintaining a region free from
transnational threats, as well as
enhance capability to conduct
multinational peacekeeping
missions.

Fleet Public Affairs Center Detachment,
Southeast
After dedicating over a year
of his life to weightlifting and
building a stronger body, pay-
off has come for Explosive
Ordnance Technician Jeff
Pierson. Pierson placed first in
his class in the 2008 American
Powerlifting Federation,
Orlando Barbell Classic, Feb.
23.
Pierson took a break from
powerlifting from 1992 until
early last year, when he started


preparing for the competition
by focusing on the events he
would be judged on, squats,
bench press and dead lift. The
best score in each event is car-
ried over to his overall total.
"Getting back into the com-
petitive atmosphere was the
hardest part of preparing for
this competition," said Pierson.
"Just knocking out that first
meet felt good."
In preparation, Pierson ham-
mered out a rotational work-
out schedule, taking every third
week off to rest. He also trains


on cardio machines three times
a week on days he doesn't lift.
"I enjoy the competition,"
said Pierson. "Especially outdo-
ing what I did the day before.
It's important and it keeps me
competitive."
Pierson will be compet-
ing in a meet next month, with
another competition quickly
following in June, the National
Powerlifting and Bench Press
Championships, where he
plans on breaking four national
records.

NH Jax Makes Plans



To Expand By 2010


Health Promo Gets Gold


From NAVFAC Southeast
Navy patients will see a big change when vis-
iting the Naval Hospital Jacksonville in 2010
as Naval Facilities Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast awarded Walbridge
Aldinger Company, of Detroit, Mich., a $35.8
million contract on March 31 for an addition and
alterations to the hospital at Naval Air Station
Jacksonville.
"This is exciting news for our patients and staff
as we can all look forward to delivering patient
care in a vastly improved healthcare environ-
ment," said Hospital Commanding Officer Capt.
Raquel Bono. "This represents the hard work of
scores of people who have labored to put this
contract together."
"Work began in 2005 to put this project togeth-
er," said NAVFAC Southeast IPT South Atlantic
Operations Officer Cmdr. Kevin Roye. "There
have been many challenges with hospital con-
struction over the past two years due to an abun-
dance of hurricane repairs along the gulf coast
and because it is specialized construction."
This project will provide a 62,000 square foot,
three-story addition with an eight-story elevator
tower along with approximately 28,000 square
feet area of alteration and partial renovation in
the existing facility.
A new generator and fuel tank will be added to
the project. Site work shall include the construc-


tion of a new retention pond, storm and sanitary
lines.
"With this addition, and all the renovations and
enhanced technologies we already have in place
along with our renewed focus on healthcare excel-
lence and service, Naval Hospital Jacksonville
begins a new era of excellence in caring for our
military family," said Bono.
The hospital will remain in operation during the
construction and the work will have limited phas-
ing to allow hospital functions to be maintained
with minimal interruption.
"When we talk about special construction chal-
lenges we have to address standards of infection
control," said Roye. "Most construction projects
do not have to adhere to such stringent standards.
As the hospital will remain functioning, the con-
tractor will have to take special precautions to
ensure the health, safety, and well-being of not
only their staff, but also that the safety of the
patients at the hospital is not compromised."
NAVFAC Southeast has an excellent safety
record with all of its construction projects as well
as within the command's personnel work space.
As with any construction project safety is of the
utmost importance.

me and given me the tools to
be able to take the reigns of
this great squadron. I used the
term 'a change in leadership,
not change in command,' for I
feel that being in command is
all about leadership.... Some
people will say that many of the
great leaders of the world are
born that way. I say no, I think
that every leader needs the fol-
lowing things: a hero to look
up to, a sense of direction, men-
torship, friendship, and inspira-
tion."
Gordon is a native of
Columbia, South Carolina and
a 1989 graduate of the Georgia
Institute of Technology. He
earned his commission through
the NROTC program in 1990
and was designated a naval avi-
ator in 1991.
After completing flight train-
ing in the SH60B Seahawk at
HSL-40 in September 1992,
he reported to HSL-44 for his
first fleet tour. While there,
Gordon was awarded the
1994 Commander HSLWING
Atlantic Fleet Aviation Valor


and embarked Aircrew of the
Year Awards as well as the
Sikorsky Rescue Pin for his
daring night, high-seas rescue
of five civilians from a sinking
vessel.
Two years later, he was
awarded his second Sikorsky
Rescue Pin for a heroic rescue
of six civilians and one air-
crewman from atop a burning
smokestack in Palatka, Florida.
He was also awarded HSL-
44's Detachment Maintenance
Officer and Detachment of the
Year awards for 1995.
Gordon's other tours include
a flight instructor billet at HSL-
40 where he was recognized as
the Instructor of the Year for
1998, Squadron Weapons and
Tactics Instructor and detach-
ment Assistant Officer-in-
Charge at HSL-44, detailer at
Naval Personnel Command
(BUPERS), Detachment
Officer-in-Charge and Squadron
Operations Officer at HSL-42
where he was named the HSL-
42 and COMHSLWINGLANT
2003 Officer of the Year and


the 2003 Commander Naval Air
Forces Leadership Award win-
ner.
He also served with the
Joint Staff's Force Application
Assessment Division in
Washington, D.C. as an
Aviation Capabilities Analyst,
an Executive Assistant to the
Deputy Director for Force
Application and was a member
of the J-3's National Military
Command Center in direct sup-
port of Operations Enduring and
Iraqi Freedom.
Gordon closed his remarks
with a challenge to each Proud
Warrior to "some way strive
to be a hero and a mentor, to
inspire and to provide a sense of
direction. I truly believe if we
as a command do those things
with and for each other, then we
will always succeed and con-
tinue to be what we all know
we are: the best squadron in the
United States Navy."
The Proud Warriors wel-
come Executive Officer, Cmdr.
Christopher P. Failla. Failla
began his fleet career in HSL-


42 and is rejoining the squadron
following a tour on the OPNAV
staff where he served as lead
aviation programmer.
"I am extremely excited and
proud to return as the executive
officer and to follow in the foot-
steps of so many great LAMPS
leaders," said Failla before the
ceremony. "This is my third
tour as a Proud Warrior and I
have never seen the squadron


looking and performing better
than it does today. The person-
nel here are the most dedicated
and professional sailors and
officers I have ever served with
and I am honored to be their

TRICARE Continues NCI


Cancer Trial Coverage


From TRICARE
TRICARE beneficiaries have
more options for cancer care
and greater access to advances
in cancer prevention and treat-
ment through clinical trials.
The Department of Defense
(DoD) and the National Cancer
Institute (NCI) have renewed
their agreement for a continued
partnership in cancer clinical
trials.
The interagency agreement
continues a long successful
project between the NCI and
DoD. The previous agreement
was signed in June 1999.
"TRICARE beneficiaries
have access to some of the most
promising advances in cancer
research through participation
in NCI-sponsored clinical tri-
als," said Army Major General
Elder Granger, Deputy Director,
TRICARE Management
Activity. "I'm happy to see this
continue." TRICARE covers
the medical costs associated
with taking part in clinical tri-
als.
The agreement allows
TRICARE-eligible cancer
patients to take part in NCI-
sponsored Phase II and Phase
III cancer clinical trials as well
as cancer prevention trials.
Phase II trials typically study
the effectiveness of new drugs
or therapies against a specific
type of cancer. Phase III tri-
als compare new treatments to


existing therapies.
In cancer prevention tri-
als, patients take medications
or supplements or participate
in certain activities that doctors
believe will lower their cancer
risk. Patient safety is stressed.
During participation in a can-
cer clinical trial, patients receive
treatment at one of more than
2,000 sites that participate in
NCI-sponsored studies includ-
ing military treatment facilities
(MTFs), civilian providers, and
comprehensive cancer cen-
ters. A preauthorization from a
regional TRICARE contractor
is required.
"One of NCI's highest priori-
ties is to ensure that our latest
science new treatments and
new prevention methods is
available to all cancer patients
in the communities where they
live," said NCI Director John E.
Niederhuber, M.D. "Our agree-
ment with TRICARE helps
advance that goal."
For more information about
cancer trials, TRICARE benefi-
ciaries should speak with their
oncologist. For more details
on the DoD/NCI clinical trials
agreement, link to www.cancer.
gov/cancertopics/factsheet/NCI/

TRICARE cancer clinical tri-
als benefit and authorization,
beneficiaries should contact

Trials Coordinator as provided

Review Assistance, FFSC
April 17, 8- 11 a.m., Anger
Management, FFSC
What does anger do for you?
Communicate for you? Keep
people at a safe distance from
you? Keep you in charge? For
many people, anger serves them
many uses, but all too often,
it is at a high cost...usually of
relationships, unhappiness in
the workplace, and a general
feeling of disdain. If you want
to be able to break out of the
"get angry/get even" syndrome,
come to this class. Participants
learn how anger and judgment
are related, about irrational
beliefs and faulty self-talk, what
"E + R = 0" means, and the
roles of stress and forgiveness
in anger.

April 25, 9 a.m.-noon, What
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.

Learn How Latest Law On Repaying




Student Loans Can Help You


By Lt.j.g. Cara Addison
RLSO
Congress recently passed the
College Cost Reduction and
Access Act, an act designed to
benefit college graduates who
are employed in certain types of
jobs. It has several provisions
that favor military servicemem-
bers, including a provision that
may enable servicemembers to
lower their monthly payments
and another provision that would
allow servicemembers to receive
forgiveness on outstanding bal-
ances after a certain amount of
time.
Different sections of the Act
take effect at different dates,
and it is important to know what
programs you qualify for and
at what time. Section 203 may
lower a graduate's monthly stu-
dent loan repayment by allowing
the graduate to elect an income-
based repayment option.
This option was meant to ben-
efit low-income borrowers, and
limits the total amount that the
graduate can pay annually. The
graduate's total annual amount
may not be more than 15 per-
cent of his or her discretionary
income. Discretionary income
is defined as adjusted gross
income minus 150 percent of


the poverty level for the gradu-
ate's family size. These figures
are not difficult to calculate, and
you should not be scared by the
terminology. To calculate your
discretionary income, start with
the poverty guideline for your
family size.
The poverty guidelines can
be found online at http://aspe.
hhs. gov/poverty/08poverty.
shtml. Note that the guidelines
for Alaska and Hawaii are dif-
ferent than the guidelines for
the contiguous 48 states and
Washington, D.C. Multiply
the appropriate poverty guide-
line by 150 percent. Subtract
this amount from your adjusted
gross income. You now have
your discretionary income.
Please note that service-
members must understand that
in making this calculation that
their adjusted gross income
does not include BAS or BAH.
Next, multiply your discre-
tionary income by 0.15. This
figure is the maximum annual
amount you may repay under
the income-based repayment
option.
To get your maximum month-
ly payment, further divide the
figure by 12. Section 203 does
not go into effect until July 1,


2009, but various student loan
services offer income-contin-
gent repayment options now,
which are similar. The differ-
ence between your monthly
payment calculated under the
income-based option and a stan-
dard repayment schedule can be
drastic.
Married borrowers face a
unique situation. For these
individuals, the adjusted gross
income of each spouse is com-
bined for the purposes of cal-
culating the monthly payment.
The result is that the borrower-
spouse will likely face a higher
amount of payment than he or
she would have if still single.
Section 401 of the Act strong-
ly favors servicemembers, in
that this type of employment
qualifies as full-time public
service. This section provides
that a graduate who works full-
time in public service, and who
makes 120 payments while
employed in such position, is
entitled to have the unpaid bal-
ance of his or her student loans,
both principal and interest, for-
given. In other words, the grad-
uate's remaining debt is wiped
away and the graduate does not
pay it back.
The 120 payments need not


be continuous. A graduate may
leave public service, at which
time the count to 120 would
stop, then return to this type
of full-time employment after
such break, when the 120 count
would resume. This section
technically does not become
effective until July 1, 2009, how-
ever, the 120 clock began to run
on October 1, 2007. This means
that any student loan repayment
that a graduate has already made
between October 1, 2007 and
the present may count as part of
his or her 120 payments. There
are limitations on this and other
provisions; they are discussed in
the next paragraph.
There are a few catches to
Section 401. First, private loans
are not eligible for the ben-
efits of the Act. Most federal
loans qualify, including Federal
Perkins and Federal Stafford
loans, but you should check to
make sure they meet the cri-
teria. Second, in order to take
advantage of the Act, the loans
must be classified as "federal
direct loans."
This means that any loan
managed by a service, such
as Sallie Mae, is ineligible for
income-based repayment or for-
giveness after 120 payments,


pursuant to the Act.
Having a service is not a
complete bar, however, gradu-
ates merely need to consolidate
their federal loans with the
Department of Education. Once
this process is complete, the fed-
eral loans are now called "fed-
eral direct consolidation loans"
and meet the requirements for
the benefits.
Consolidation is not an
impossible process, but one
must remember to compare the
interest rate paid on the serviced
loan versus the interest rate that
one would pay after the loan is
consolidated under the Act to
determine which would be the
better deal by comparing the
change in interest rate with the
savings due to income-based
repayment and loan forgiveness.
As the law stands right now,
when student loans are forgiv-
en after 120 payments under
Section 401, the graduate faces
taxable gain. You should realize
that you may still end up owing
some amount for an educational
debt that was forgiven.
Congress is currently debat-
ing the issue of whether such a
student loan forgiveness should
continue to be counted as a tax-
able gain. Thus, personnel with


this issue must stay aware of
changes in the law that might
reclassify the student loan fore-
giveness as a taxable event.
Tell your family and friends
about the College Cost
Reduction and Access Act, since
the definition of "public service
job" is quite broad. It includes
not only military servicemem-
bers, but also employees in gov-
ernment; law enforcement; pub-
lic health, safety and education;
social work; and a number of
other tax-exempt organizations.
It is definitely worth taking the
time to look into your student
loan situation; this Act is too
good to ignore.
