The Sullivans Sails Into


New York Fleet


From Fleet Week New York Public

The 21st Fleet Week celebra-
tion in New York City began
May 21, with the traditional
Parade of Ships.
The five U.S. Navy ships
participating in the Fleet
Week commemoration are the
amphibious assault ship USS
Kearsarge (LHD 3), guided-
missile cruisers USS Leyte Gulf
(CG 55) and USS Monterey
(CG 61), and the guided-missile
destroyers USS The Sullivans
(DDG 68) and USS Nitze
(DDG 94). Kearsarge and Leyte
Gulf arrived in Manhattan at
Pier 88 and 90 respective-
ly, and Monterey, Nitze and
The Sullivans moored at the
Stapleton Piers on Staten Island.
A U.S. Coast Guard cutter
and three Canadian navy ves-
sels joined the U.S. Navy ships
at the Parade of Ships and will
also be participating in Fleet
Week events.
Hosted nearly every year
since 1984, Fleet Week New


York is the city's celebration of
the sea services. This event also
provides an opportunity for the
citizens of New York City and
the surrounding tri-state area to
meet Sailors, Marines and Coast
Guardsmen, as well as see, first-
hand, the latest capabilities of
today's maritime services.
"I'm looking forward to see-
ing what the Navy does," said
Michael Padovano, a New York
native and father of an embarked
Marine aboard Kearsarge. "I
can't wait to hug my son, but
I'm also curious to see the ship
and see how the crew lives. I
never had the privilege to serve,
so I'm very interested."
While in New York, nearly
4,000 Sailors, Marines and
Coast Guardsmen will partici-
pate in Memorial Day parades
in all five boroughs; volunteer
with local community outreach
organizations; and experience
the sights, sounds and hospital-
ity of New York City.
"It's great to be back in New
York for Fleet Week," said


Week
Vice Adm. Evan M. Chanik,
Jr., director, Combined Joint
Operations from the Sea Center
of Excellence for Second Fleet.
"This is a great opportunity
for the sea services to show
the great citizens of New York
City their Navy, their Marine
Corps and their Coast Guard,
and allow them the opportunity
to meet the great people who
provide a wonderful service to
our country."
Public visitations of the U.S.
Navy ships will commence
May 22 and concluded May
27. Additionally, there will be a
number of exhibits showing off
the technology of our maritime
services and the skilled exper-
tise of service members.

the relationship between New
York and the U.S. Navy, click

Brazilian Sub Visits Mayport To


Promote U.S.-Brazil Interoperability


By MC3 Alan Gragg
U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command
Public, -,
Marinha do Brasil (Brazilian
Navy) submarine Timbira (S-
32) made a port visit to Naval
Station Mayport, May 20-
26, to build on partner rela-
tions with the United States.
Shortly after the sub arrived
in Mayport, officers from
Timbira's sister ship, USS
Vicksburg (CG 69), hosted an
icebreaker with Timbira's offi-
cers, kicking off the long list
of relationship-building events
between the U.S. and Brazilian
navies while Timbira was
in port. Promoting regional
maritime partner relations is a
mission of U.S. Naval Forces
Southern Command (NAVSO).
"Timbira coming to Mayport
demonstrates the continued
commitment by the U.S. Navy
and Brazilian Navy in building
strong, working relationships,"
said NAVSO Commander, Rear
Adm. James W. Stevenson Jr.
"This port visit provides the
opportunity for the crew of

CO Column

As I write this, I have just
returned with my family from
attending the Memorial Day
Observance at Veterans
Memorial Wall in downtown
Jacksonville.
It was a wonderful service as
we recognized service mem-
bers from World War I through
the Global War on Terrorism.
Four local servicemen lost
their lives this year defend-
ing our country and I had the
honor to escort the family of
Petty Officer Roderick Carnes
as we dedicated his spot on the
wall by presenting a wreath.
That is the true spirit of
Memorial Day and it one that
will stay with me for the rest of
my life.
Speaking of memori-
als, many thanks are in order
for everyone involved in our
annual observance of the USS
Stark attack at our own memo-
rial park. YNC Norma Brown,
who coordinated the event, and


Capt. Aaron Bowman
many others made this a special
ceremony of remembrance, and
recognition of the true grit of
those who survived, and those
who paid the ultimate sacrifice
to our country.
If you are a resident of base
housing you've already noticed
some great changes. If you
aren't, take a drive through


housing and observe what is
taking place. You'll notice
painted signs, yards mowed to
the same height, beautiful land-
scaping, and a renewed pride
amongst the residents. Housing
is now becoming fully inte-
grated across the ranks during
the reconstruction process we
have closed down the majority
of Senior Enlisted/Junior Officer
housing and relocated them to
spots available in Senior Officer
housing and overflow is going
into Junior Enlisted housing.
For the chief on one side
of me and the leiutenant on
the other side, did you all get
first pick or last pick where
to live? My family and I are
always glad to have new neigh-
bors and we welcome you all.
We have also started the upgrad-
ing process in Junior Enlisted
housing with upgrading 12 units
with enclosed garages, an addi-
tion to the back of the house,
and inside renovations. We


are just about ready to start the
process of rebuilding Ribualt
Off-Base housing and are final-
ly in the last stages of vacating
Johnson Housing near Regency
Mall.
Our housing partner, Balfour
Beatty is really making a dif-
ference and Mayport will have
some of the best housing in the
nation when completed in a
few years. Also, Balfour has
initiated recycling in the hous-
ing areas. They couldn't have
made it more easy simply ask
for a recycling container, throw
anything recyclable in it (don't
have to sort), and it magically
disappears on garbage pickup
day. Please help us keep the
landfills from growing too fast.
Thanks to the USO for orga-
nizing the 5th Annual USO
Military & Family Appreciation
Day at our Sea Otter Pavilion. A
special thanks also goes out to
the Disney Company for their
large and generous financial


contribution.
I know it takes plenty of work
to pull off these events, and
your dedication and pride really
shines. There were too many
volunteers to recognize, but I
have to spotlight Mike Davidson
Ford and his 27 volunteers that
came on base to help in every
category. You can't ask for bet-
ter community support. I was
trying to figure how to impound
the 540 Horsepower Mustang
they brought on base because
it could outrun anything we
have, but my JAG officer
advised against it. It was a fun
time for everyone.
Mayport had its first Sea
Turtle nest show up last week
over by the Navy Lodge.
Sometime in mid July we
should expect to see more than
100 baby turtles head out to sea.
Please respect the nest and if
you see any sign of any turltes,
please contact security.
We have just entered the


prime nesting season and pre-
dictions are that this will be
an active year. We have a lot
of great volunteers who walk
the beach every morning look-
ing for new nests but an equal
amount are discovered by non-
trained personnel.
For those of you that are on
the road to a college degree,
our Navy College Center has
resumed ACT/SAT testing at the
center. If you are thinking about
putting in your STA-21 pack-
age, or need to boost your SAT/
ACT scores, now is the time to
do it. The Navy College Office
provides these exams free to
Sailors, and help is just a phone
call away at 270-6341.
Keep those great suggestions

box located at Oasis Galley.


CREDO Corner


IL


By Lt. Rickey Bennett
Spiritual Fitness Division SE
My Knapsack on My Back;
a make-believe story: A certain
person decided to hike along
the Appalachian Trail.
In preparation for the trip
she assembled her gear, which
included the necessary shel-
ter, sleeping bag, food, cook-
ing utensils, clothing, matches,
a canteen, a walking stick, a
good pair of hiking boots and
an oversized backpack.
She needed a pack with extra
space to carry some additional
items: five rocks about six inch-
es in diameter, weighing about


eight pounds each. The trip
progressed fairly well, although
it went slower than it should
have.
The extra weight of the rocks
took its toll, making the hike
much more strenuous. They
threw off her balance. She was
more prone to falling, and the
added weight made every fall
a bit more painful. This bulky,
heavy load also caused inju-
ries that gave her a limp lasting
many weeks after her trip.
Of course it didn't help that
she continued to carry those
five rocks the rest of her life.
She got used to carrying the


burden. She didn't really think
about them much unless some-
one asked her.
"Aren't those rocks a little
heavy?" someone might ask.
"Yes, they are." she would
reply, "I sure wish I could get
rid of them."
She could have, but she never
did.
I really should have said this
is a true story. No, it never hap-
pened, but the truth is we all
carry around more weight than
we need to. Our burdens affect
our ability to accomplish goals,
and to live our lives.
They influence our "posture,"


that is, our outlook on life, and
when other troubles or chal-
lenges meet us, we are less able
to cope with them, less able to
keep our balance. You know
the weight about which I am
speaking, the weight of prob-
lems and troubles, the burden of
grief and regret unresolved, the
heavy load of a relationship at
risk, the ponderous weight of a
bad habit or addiction.
Our imaginary hiker had five
rocks. Let's say you have five
rocks in your imaginary back-
pack. What are the names
etched on them? Do you really
need to carry them around any-


more? Wouldn't it be great to
lighten your load?
There is nothing magic about
what we do at CREDO. We
simply create a safe place for
persons to pause and take a look
at what they are carrying. We
give you the necessary space
to let you determine what you
want to continue to carry and
what you may be able to drop.
The truth is that some burdens
cannot be removed, but if your
"pack" is so full and heavy that
it is dragging on the ground, I
am sure we can help you find
something you can remove that
will lighten your load.


Travel light. The journey
through life is hard enough
without having to be bogged
down toting unnecessary bag-
gage. Let us help you unpack.
It will cost you nothing!
I recommend to you our
Personal Growth Retreat, a 72-
hour retreat offered to service
members and their adult family
members. Perhaps you would
like to work on your marriage.
Our 48-hour Marriage
Enrichment Retreat is just the
ticket. We have other offerings
as well.

morning, he shifted the focus
of his visit by eating lunch
with Vicksburg's sailors of the
quarter, and meeting with the
Chief's Mess and Wardroom
to discuss readiness topics and
Task Force Work/Life concerns.
The information gained during
his visit provided a snapshot of
the ship's daily life and offered
some deckplate insight into
important issues that will con-
cern him as the Assistant Chief
of Naval Personnel (ACNP) for

Career Progression (N 13).
Holloway's visit was capped
off by attending a Surface Navy

at Ocean Breeze Conference
Center as guest of honor. He
spoke to a gathering of over 75
officers, chiefs, and civilians
emphasizing the importance
of readiness and training in the
Surface Navy. He also dis-
cussed manning issues and con-
cerns, leveraging valuable les-
sons learned during his previous
tour as Assistant Commander,

"We're very happy and pleased

Most of the Brazilian sub's

happy for the opportunity to see
a part of the country while oper-

Brazilian Cmdr. Eneas Ervilha,
Timbira's Commanding Officer.
"We are very appreciative of the
opportunity to be here, and it's a
great honor to wake up and hear
the Brazilian national anthem
after the U.S. National Anthem
in the morning. You can't imag-
ine how comforting it is to hear
that song so far from home.
We feel very welcome here."
The sub was invited by the U.S.

The Su
By Ensign
Douglas Weatherhead
USS The Sullvans
It was a regular morning,
The Sullivans was berthed to
D-1 pier and going through
its inport routine. The ship
was taking on fuel with Bravo
flown at the peak of the mast.
Out of nowhere, the ship's 1MC
shouted, "FIRE FIRE FIRE!"
The crew knew this was the real
deal!
Hull Technician 2nd Class


Ilivans Sailor Awarded


Johnson was racing down the
port side passageway as a first
responder to a potential crisis.
Further 1MC announcements
alerted the crew to the presence
of fire on the flight deck and to
secure the transfer of fuel.
With the ship's crew rapidly
responding to the fire, Damage
Control Repair Lockers were
being manned while Sailors
swiftly dressed out in the
Navy's Fire Fighting Ensemble
(FFE).


Before the crew could
respond, the Damage Control
assistant announced that the fire
was jettisoned over the side and
thrown into the basin. Questions
began to formulate in the minds
of curious Sailors and were
quickly laid to rest with the fol-
lowing account.
Gunner's Mate Seaman
Louis Rosario was carrying out
his assigned duties as a front
running member of Combat
Gunnery Division. During his


topside routine, Seaman Rosario
noticed a MK58 Smoke Float
not properly stowed.
Taking the initiative in solv-
ing this discrepancy, Seaman
Rosario picked up the Smoke
Float to stow in a shipboard
Ready Service Locker (RSL).
Along the way, the MK58
smoke float inadvertently acti-
vated creating a potentially cat-
astrophic situation for the entire
ship.
Possessing the extreme con-


For Qu
sciences of safety, Rosario ran
away from the fueling station
towards the flight deck of the
ship, while retaining positive
control of the active ordnance.
Rosario continued to perform
with courage by holding onto
the burning ammunition until he
was clear of harming any near-
by Sailor and preventing any
damage to The Sullivans.
One day later, the crew was
assembled on the flight deck
for an All Hands Call with the


ick Wit
Commanding Officer, Cmdr.
Ryan C. Tillotson. Seaman
Rosario was praised for his self-
lessness, demonstrating the ide-
als of the Naval Service; Honor,
Courage and Commitment.
On April 11, Rosario
was awarded his first Navy
Achievement Medal, acting
with heroism and in keeping
with the highest traditions of
the naval service.

By Ensign Samara Taylor
USS John L. Hall PAO
The USS John L. Hall (FFG
32) pulled into Sevastopol,
Ukraine from May 8-12 as
part of its Theater Security
Cooperation (TSC) deployment.
The visit served to enhance
regional stability in the Black
Sea and strengthen our mari-
time partnerships. The ship
arrived in Sevastopol to cele-
brate Victory Day; a day that
commemorates the millions of
Soviet soldiers that fell during
World War II while trying to
regain control of their country.
Two USS John L. Hall Sailors,
Operations Specialist 1Pt Class
Joshua Craig and Gas Turbine


System Technician Electrical
2nd Class Seth Schaeffer, were
a part of the wreath laying cer-
emony.
The ship held a reception
onboard the flight deck for
more than 60 guests. Among the
attendees were the Ukrainian
Chief of Naval Forces, Admiral
Tenyukh, and the Deputy Chief
of Mission James Petit. They
honored the crew and guests
with a few words along with
Commander Task Force 67,
Commodore Chip Walter and
the ship's Commanding Officer,
Cmdr. A.P. Bennett. The under-
lying theme in the remarks was
a genuine longing for a last-
ing friendship between the two


countries.
Guided tours were given to
Ukrainian non commissioned
officers, local high school,
and college students. The ship
provided demonstrations on
Damage Control equipment and
Visit, Board, Search and Seizure
(VBSS) tactics, as well as an
in depth explanation of the key
spaces on the ship.
In lieu of a traditional com-
munity relations project, the
crew donated more than $400 to
a local orphanage. The crew of
USS John L. Hall maintained a
standard of professionalism that
will leave a lasting impression
on the people of Sevastopol,
Ukraine.

By Ensign Samara Taylor
USS John L. Hall
In support of its Theater

deployment, USS John L.
Hall recently pulled into
Batumi, Georgia and was met
by Secretary of the Navy, the
Honorable Dr. Donald Winters,
Secretary of the Navy, as well
as the President of Georgia,
Mikhaeil Saakashvili.
The ship hosted a luncheon
in the wardroom for SECNAV
to celebrate the visit and com-
memorate the 100t anniversary
of the sailing of the Great White
Fleet.
An awards ceremony was


held at which SECNAV present-
ed Navy Achievement Medals
and Navy Commendation
Medals to sailors who had gone
above and beyond during the
ship's Black Sea operations.
Winters remarked on the out-
standing condition of the ship
and thanked the crew for its ser-
vice.
The Georgian Navy and Coast
Guard participated in interac-
tive training on board the ship
with the Visit Board Search
and Seizure Team complet-
ing a boarding scenario while
the President of Georgia and
the U.S. Secretary of the Navy
observed. This made a lasting


impression on the participants
as their president witnessed
their training.
A formal reception was held
onboard later the same evening.
Among the guest speakers were
the American Ambassador to
Georgia, the Deputy Minister
of Defense, and the Secretary
of the Navy. SECNAV spoke
on the lasting impression of the
Great White Fleet and the posi-
tive impact the Fleet had on the
countries and people it visited
as well as the hope for Georgia
to join NATO and formally
become our ally though they
already are in spirit.

and commemoration services on
May 21. All are held in honor
of the Battle of Iquique, a naval

marched in the Glorias Navales
naval parade and said he felt
honored to be a part of the
Chilean celebration.
"Being asked to march in a
parade state side is an honor
itself, celebrating our own
accomplishments, victories and
losses. But being asked to cele-
brate the same things for anoth-
er country... it's beyond honor,"
said Pettys. "Despite the cold
weather we put our best foot
forward to pay our respects to
the honor and courage of Arturo

naval heroes."

ticipated in a community rela-
tions (COMREL) project, May
20, in Punta Arenas, Chile.
During the COMREL, seven
volunteers spent the day inter-
acting with children and paint-
ing the classroom walls at
Arturo Prat School.
"I enjoyed the interaction
with the children and the looks
on their faces was just price-


"There were kids from kinder-
garten to eighth grade at the
school and being able to spend
time with them and provide a
service that makes a difference
is very rewarding."
Operations Specialist 1st
Class Robert Harvey said
he hopes his efforts in this
COMREL project improve
Arturo Prat School's learning
environment.
"I have kids and I would want
my children to have a place of


Robert Harvey. "If their place of
education looks nice they'd pay
more attention, and who knows
a future Chilean President may
come from this very school."
The COMREL didn't end
with the volunteers painting,
Farragut also joined efforts with
Project Handclasp to provide
toys and hygiene products for
the children.
Project Handclasp is an offi-
cial U.S. Navy program that
coordinates transportation and


on naval vessels and distribu-
tion by U.S. Navy and Marine
Corps personnel on behalf of
American citizens to people in
need.
Project Handclasp relies on
donations from individuals,
organizations and corporations
to collect items, including med-
ical supplies, toys, books rand
hygiene items.
Farragut donated two pallets
of supplies to the school includ-
ing hygiene items and toys


clad Huascar and the wooden
Chilean ship, Esmerelda fought
off the coast of Antofagasta.
Arturo Prat Chacon, the
Captain of the Esmeralda had
told his men that he would not
surrender any cost. At one point
in the battle, the two ships were
close enough for Prat to issue
the command "Al abordaje
muchachos!" ("To boarding,
boys!"). Only two men heard
the command and jumped with
him. All three were killed in
the attempt.
After Prat's death, the
Commander of the Huascar
ordered the ship back while they
waited for the Esmeralda to sur-
render. The Chileans, remem-
bering Prat's words, did not sur-
render, but continued to fight.
The Huascar attacked again,
ramming the wooden ship,
opening a breech and firing at
close range. Two more board-
ing attempts on the Huascar
were repelled and the Chilean
sailors continued to fight even
as the Esmeralda sank beneath
them. Of the 198 crew aboard
the Esmeralda, only 58 sur-
vived.
The Naval Battle of Iquique
was a Peruvian tactical victory;
the blockade on Iquique was
lifted and Chile temporarily left
the area. However, it proved
to be strategically costly. One
of the most powerful warships
in the Peruvian Navy was lost,
while Chile only lost one of its
oldest wooden warships. This
left the Huascar alone to fight
the entire Chilean Navy.

hygiene pallet included items
such as mouth wash, head-to-

"COMREL projects are about
giving and sharing what we
can, and to be able to make a
difference here today in these
children's lives is worth far
more than millions of dollars,"
said Chaplain (Lt. Cmdr.) Luis
Perez.
Farragut is currently assigned
to Commander, Destroyer


Prat inspired thousands of
Chilean youth to join their
country's cause. This is consid-
ered in Chilean history as one
of the most important factors
for their victory.
Farragut's Commanding
Officer, Cmdr. Scott Dugan said
the Chilean culture and patrio-
tism was amazing.
"Participating in Glorias
Navales de Chile events was
truly an honor for Farragut
Sailors. From attending a sol-
emn dinner recreating the events
of the battle to attending church
with the people of Punta Arenas
and then marching in the holi-
day parade, the people of Chile
welcomed us with open arms
and it was our privilege to share
in their naval history."
Farragut's participation
in this historic Chilean event
is part of Partnership of the
Americas 2008 (POA 08).
POA 08 is the third exercise
by that name and is held from
April October throughout
the Caribbean and Central and
South America. The exercise
emphasizes interoperability and
cooperation between U.S. and

Farragut Celebrate 'Dia de la Armada Argentina'


By MC2 J. T. Bolestridge
CDS 40
Sailors from guided-missile
destroyer USS Farragut (DDG
99) joined their Argentinean
counterparts and celebrated
the Argentinean holiday "Dia
de la Armada Argentina" or
"Argentinean Navy Day" dur-
ing a ceremony, May 16, in
Ushuaia, Argentina.
Farragut's Commanding
Officer, Cmdr. Scott Dugan said
Ushuaia's Navy Day ceremony
was a unique look at the rich
culture of Argentina.
"Participating in Argentina's
Navy Day Ceremony was
a truly unique opportunity
for the crew. The pride the
Argentine Navy has for Admiral
Brown's military accomplish-
ments reminds me of how we
feel about our ship's namesake,
Admiral Farragut. This cere-
mony highlights the importance
of military history and brings
our two navies closer together."
"Dia de la Armada Argentina"
is celebrated each year as a day
to remember the naval efforts
that made Argentina's "May
Revolution" possible. Shortly
after Napoleon Bonaparte invad-
ed Spain and overthrew Spanish
King Ferdinand, the Argentine
Navy seized the opportunity to
launch their own offensive half
way around the world.
The area known today as
Argentina was once a part of
the Spanish Viceroyalty of
the Rio de la Plata. Admiral
William Brown led nine naval

vessels equipped with 147 guns
against the Spanish Armada,
11 ships and 155 guns strong,
off the cost of what is now
Montevideo, Uruguay. On May
14, Brown and the outnum-
bered Argentineans pretended
to retreat and drew the Spanish
forces away from the protection
of the city's fort guns. From
May 15-17 an engagement took
place between the Spanish and
Argentine Armadas, during the
course of which Brown's leg
was shattered by a Spanish can-
nonball.
Undeterred, Brown contin-
ued to issue orders and direct
operations while stretched out


on the deck of his flagship,
the Hercules. Brown and the
Argentines captured three of
the Spanish ships as they tried
to return to the shelter of the
port. As a direct result of this
engagement "Rio de la Plata"
was freed from Spanish con-
trol and Montevideo fell to the
Argentines.
As the hero of the action,
Brown was raised to the rank of
colonel and made Commander
of the Navy. The Hercules was
also presented to him as a per-
sonal gift and reward for his
service.

Argentine Rear Adm. Alberto
Enrique Martin said Brown's
example is one we should all try
to live by.
"William Brown withstood
abuse and imprisonment, but
managed to maintain his cour-


age and fight on," said Martin.
"He embodied the spirit of free-
dom, and was also the epito-
me of what a sailor should be
- courageous, resolute and pro-
fessional. Today's sailors serve
their countries well and should
continue to live up to example
Brown set."
Farragut Sailors' participation
in Argentinean Navy Day was
part of an ongoing cooperative


engagement named Partnership
of the Americas 2008 (POA
08). POA 08 the third engage-
ment by that name and is held
from annually throughout the
Caribbean and Central and
South America. It emphasizes
interoperability and coopera-
tion between U.S. and part-
ner nation's maritime forces
through a variety of exercises
and events.

engagement, Farragut Sailors
visited the Ushuaia Naval
Base to share information with
Argentineans at a Subject Matter
Expert Exchange (SMEE).
Hospital Corpsman First
Class (FMF) Wasim Mohamed
said that it was very satisfying
to exchange procedures and best
practices with his Argentinean
counterparts.


"Everyone there was in the
medical field-it's our passion.
Being able to teach and learn
from them was great because
by imparting my experiences
to others, I feel like I've made
a difference. I would do this in
every port if I could," he said.
Sailors took time during the
brief visit in Ushuaia to add a
few pints to the hospital's blood
supply as well.


Mohamed said that it's good
to have a large supply of blood
in the event of an emergency.
"Giving Blood to the
Argentinean Regional Hospital
helped to foster a universal
bond, not only because blood is
a gift of life, but it shows their
community that though we are
two different nations, we share
a common interest in saving
lives," he said.


Five Sailors volunteered to
give blood in order to help out
the local hospital, as well as
strengthen relationships with
the Argentinean Navy and local
citizens.
"It was very moving to be
able to have the opportunity to
give the gift of life and to be
able to interact with the commu-
nity," said Farragut Operations
Officer, Lt. Robert McFarlin.


The blood drive and SMEE
were conducted in support of

World Trade Center


Top Site For Fleet


Week Reenlistments


By MC1 Matt Grills
Fleet WeekNew York Public, i.-
Marking a significant mile-
stone in their Navy careers at the
most symbolic of places, nine
Sailors from USS Kearsarge
(LHD 3), USS Nitze (DDG 94)
and USS The Sullivans (DDG
68) reenlisted at the site of the
World Trade Center on May 23.
The group met inside Gate 7
on the southwest side of Ground
Zero, where together they raised
their hands and swore to sup-
port and defend the Constitution
of the United States. Following
the ceremony, four ensigns
from Kearsarge were promoted
to lieutenant junior grade.
Vice Adm. Marty Chanik,
commander, U.S. Navy 2nd
Fleet, led both groups in reciting
their oaths, calling it an oppor-
tunity for officers and enlisted
alike to remind themselves why
they serve their country.
"It's always a joy to reenlist
folks," Chanik said. "We rely
on our people. They are our
most important asset in provid-
ing security to the world. This
particular ceremony here tells
me that our Sailors recognize
that their service to our country
is critical."
The Ground Zero reenlist-
ment was especially meaningful
for Boatswain's Mate 3rd Class
Luis Delacruz of The Sullivans;
New York City is his home-
town. He still has strong memo-
ries of the morning of Sept. 11,
2001, when he was a 16-year-
old student at Louis D. Brandeis


High School.
"Seeing it on the news fi peo-
ple jumping, falling from the
buildings 0 it was a day I'll
never forget," Delacruz said. "I
thought it was symbolic to reen-
list in the Navy here."
Sailors in town for Fleet
Week had the opportunity to
reenlist at some of the city's
most popular attractions, includ-
ing during a Yankees games, the
Statue of Liberty and the New
York Stock Exchange. By far,
the World Trade Center site got
the biggest response, explained
Lt. Lesley Lykens of the Navy
Office of Information East.
"We had an extremely high
level of interest in this loca-
tion," she said. "So many want
to recommit to their service
here, at a place significant to all
Americans."
After repeating the oath,
Hospital Corpsman 1st Class
Julie Wilcox hugged her hus-
band and their children.
"Everything that happened
here on 9/11 fi that's why we
leave our families and travel
around the world," she said. "I
hope others will come here and
understand why the military
must act globally to keep this
from happening again."
Chief Gas Turbine System
Technician Daniel Bustria
serves aboard Nitze. Having
completed 20 years of service,
he's looking toward retirement.
"Because it's my final reen-
listment, I wanted to do a cer-
emony somewhere special,"


Bustria said.
And he did, as redevelopment
at Ground Zero is now under
way and the first steel beams
of the Freedom Tower finally
in place. During the ceremony,
sounds of construction filled the
air.
"Every time someone re-
enlists in the U.S. military, it
shows strength," Bustria said.
"We're building back up. We're
not going away."
Lt.j.g. Tom Sauer, who serves
aboard Kearsarge, said he could
not have chosen a more appro-
priate venue for his promotion.
"On 9/11, I was a junior
enlisted Marine," Sauer recalled.
"When I saw what happened,
I knew then that I'd spend my
life in the service of my country
and fighting this war.
"This is why I wear the uni-
form."
Michael Hurley of the Port
Authority of New York &
New Jersey, who manages the
World Trade Center site, said he
receives a number of requests
to host military promotion and
reenlistment ceremonies.
"This is where the global
war on terrorism started, caus-
ing a lot of people to join or
reenlist. They're coming back
to where it all began," Hurley
said. "We're very pleased and
honored to have our service-
men and servicewomen visit the
site. It's the least we can do for
them."


The Sullivans Sailors Help To Reclaim Historic


Staten Island Cemetery During Fleet Week


By MC2 Paul Dillard
Fleet WeekNew YorkPublic. "
A U.S. Navy chaplain con-
secrated the hallowed ground
of Staten Island's historic Lake
Cemetery on May 23, hon-
oring hundreds of veterans
as Memorial Day weekend
approached during Fleet Week
New York 2008.
Fifteen Sailors from USS The
Sullivans (DDG 68) and USS
Nitze (DDG 94) joined Army
Junior Reserve Officer Training
Corps (JROTC) members from
Port Richmond High School to
replace weather-worn American
flags at veterans' gravesites.


"I was pretty honored.
We started off going to clean
a cemetery and wound up re-
sanctifying a cemetery full of
Soldiers, Sailors and civilians,
reaffirming the honor of the
fallen in the eyes of the Lord.
That's just cool," said Sonar
Technician Seaman Edward
Arthur Jobst, who serves aboard
The Sullivans.
Lt. Brian Weigelt, a chap-
lin with Destroyer Squadron
22 based out of Norfolk, Va.,
is serving the crews of The
Sullivans and Nitze during Fleet
Week. "This is the first time
I've consecrated a cemetery,"


he said. "I wound up doing a lot
of research to learn how and it
was very interesting."
Lake Cemetery is one of
19 such sites that the non-
profit organization Friends of
Abandoned Cemeteries ear-
marked for reclamation. The
Staten Island cemetery dates to
the 1830s and was land donated
by local farmer Joseph Lake for
a non-denominational cemetery.
Since the 1960s, the cemetery
has lain neglected and aban-
doned. By the time Friends of
Abandoned Cemeteries inter-
vened, Lake Cemetery had long
been used as a dumping ground


for local construction projects
and was covered in everything
from lumber scraps to discarded
kitchen sinks.
"As we reclaimed it, we
noticed there were at least 125
Civil War veterans here, and
almost an equal amount of
World War I veterans. There's
also quite a number of Navy vet-
erans here," said Lynn Rogers,
executive director for Friends of
Abandoned Cemeteries.
Sailors and JROTC cadets
paired off to replace flags at
gravesites of veterans.
"This is definitely a commu-
nity remembrance day, especial-


ly on Memorial Day weekend,"
said Chris Walters, activities
coordinator at Port Richmond
High School. "A lot of veter-
ans are here. It's a good chance
to help our students appreciate
the sacrifices community mem-
bers have made for us in the
world. If you look at their faces,
they're all smiling to be here,
and especially to meet current
military personnel who are serv-
ing."
Diane Gerber, of Staten Island
Fleet Week, Inc., donated a flag
presented to her at the funer-
al of her father, U.S. Army Lt.
Col. Robert Siebold, a Vietnam


War veteran. An honor guard
exchanged Gerber's flag for a
worn flag flying over the cem-
etery. Intermediate School 51's
trumpet section played "Taps"
as the honor guard folded the
worn flag. Children from IS51
then threw red, white and blue
confetti.
"This was a really good
opportunity to reach out to the
people of New York," said Fire
Controlman 2nd Class Lee H.
Shamp of The Sullivans. "We
appreciate all their support and
hospitality. I mean, I love New
York. The city is fast paced but
the people are friendly."

dren their child's age.
May 30, 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.

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.

Philadelphians Get 'Behind The


Scenes' Look At USS


By Ensign Peter Goodman
USSKlakrng Public. ;
Nearly 400 Philadelphians
were treated to a behind-the-
scenes look at USS Klakring
(FFG 42) during its recent port
visit to Philadelphia, Penn. on
May 17.
On a beautiful Saturday in the
City of Brotherly Love, these
visitors, including many veter-
ans and members of the USS
New Jersey (BB 62) Memorial
organization, had the opportu-
nity to tour the ship under the
watchful eye of members of
Klakring's crew.
The tour began in the ship's
pilothouse, where everyone
had the opportunity to see the
ship's helm, shoot a bearing
through the centerline pelorus,
and inspect the Delaware River
through the ship's "Big Eye"
binoculars.
In addition to the inevitable
questions about navigation and
ship control, the crew was pep-
pered with questions about the
ship's characteristics, weapons
systems, and her most recent
deployment to USSOUTHCOM
AOR.
As Klakring's Anti-subma-
rine Warfare Officer, Ensign

From CNRSE
Commander, Navy
Installations Command (CNIC)
received approval May 19
from the Department of
Defense Competitive Sourcing
Official, Department of the
Undersecretary of Defense,
Installations and Environment,
to implement the agency ten-
der, which is the government
bid, for the Non-Guard Security
support activities at 80 Navy
installations identified in the
solicitation.
This decision is based on the
fact that no satisfactory private
sector responses to the solicita-

must exist for a low-cost perfor-
mance decision to be made.
In the next step of the pro-
cess, the contracting officer
will determine that the agency
tender meets all specifications
outlined in the solicitation at a
realistic price.
Employee briefings will be
conducted to communicate the
results of this evaluation. In the
meantime, updates will be pub-

The option to submit ques-

The process to request cancel-

Navy Family Finds Help For 'Special Needs' Child


By Marsha Childs
NHJMarketing
Seven years ago, Aviation
Machinist Mate Second Class
Raul Bryant of Fleet Logistics
Support Squadron (VR) 58 and
wife Rhonda were told their
newborn son might have cere-
bral palsy.
Thanks to the Navy's
Exceptional Family Member
Program (EFMP), the family
has been allowed to homestead
in Jacksonville and seek spe-
cialized medical care for their
son.
When Donovan Bryant was
born in September 2000, his feet
were crisscrossed. He spent ten
weeks in a neonatal intensive
care unit (NICU) at a civilian
hospital.
Doctors explained he could
have cerebral palsy (common-
ly called CP), which is a term
applied to a group of disorders
that affect movement, balance
and posture. CP is caused when
the part of the brain that control
motor skills is damaged or does
not develop correctly.
Fortunately, when the diag-
nosis was confirmed, the fam-
ily was allowed to stay in the
area so Donovan could receive
specialized physical and occu-
pational therapy.
Naval Hospital Jacksonville
EFMP Coordinator Galya
Taborn explained the benefits
of the program and assisted the
family with the enrollment pro-
cess.
Taborn said, "It is important
for these families to be iden-
tified before the sponsor gets

Health Care Option.


orders to ensure the services are
available at the next duty sta-
tion. This can be devastating to
a family if the specialized ser-
vices are not available-emo-
tionally as well as financially."
The family made sacrifices
to get Donovan the specialized
care he needed. Rhonda quit
herjob.
"He was in the NICU for so
long and I got pregnant again,
so I decided to stay home."
CP is a non-progressive disor-
der, but other complications can
arise. Four years ago she took
her son to St. Louis where he
had a dorsal rhizotomy, a sur-
gery to cut the nerves to relieve
muscle spasms.
Rhonda eventually found an
intensive physical and occu-
pational therapy program in
Orlando that specialized in
movement disorders. She and
Donovan made the weekly com-
mute for a year and her efforts
paid off.
"They got him moving on
canes and out of the wheel-
chair."
Donovan's older sister Darby,
age 11, is proud of his progress.
She said, "He is doing really
good. He can take five to ten
steps without anything, without
any help."
The family attributes these
small successes to the Navy's
Exceptional Family Member
Program, which allowed them
to stay in Jacksonville for seven
years and get Donovan his spe-
cialized care.
Rhonda observed, No%% that
we are to a point with Donovan


where he is more manageable,
it is time to work on Raul's
career."
Donovan, now seven years
old, is an active, intelligent first
grader.
He wears leg splints to keep
his feet and legs straight and
explains, "If I don't, I will drag
my feet and put holes in my
shoes!"
He easily gets around with
the help of a gait trainer. The
specialized walker with built-
in seat was provided under the
Extended Health Care Option
(ECHO).
This program provides finan-
cial assistance and additional
benefits for services, equipment
or supplies beyond those avail-
able through TRICARE. Active
duty families living in the U.S.
or a U.S. territory are eligible.
Petty Officer Bryant is grate-
ful to VR-58 for the com-
mand support. The EFMP has
allowed his special needs fam-
ily to stay in one location. He
still deploys, but it is a win-win
situation.
"I would recommend to each
command that leadership get to
know the EFMP families. It is
more about the diagnosis and
the needs," he said.
VR-58 Command Master
Chief Eugene Bolden agrees.
"We totally support the
Navy's program. It is vital to
support the service member and
the needs of the family mem-
bers."
Because the squadron is
staffed with fifty percent
Reservists who are activated


from two weeks up to 30 days,
deployments are typically short-
er.
"Petty Officer Bryant is a full
time support sailor. The staff
understands his situation and it
has never been a problem here,"
said Bolden.
The Bryant family is pre-
paring to transfer to VR-57 at
Naval Air Station North Island,
near San Diego.
It is one of five stateside duty
stations where EFMP families
assigned to Category 5 may be
given a long-term assignment.
Patients in this category require
highly specialized, complex
medical care. Another benefit
of being enrolled in the EMFP
is priority placement for base
housing.
If you would like more infor-
mation about the program or
ECHO, contact Naval Hospital
Jacksonville EFMP Coordinator
Galya Taborn at 542-7348.

Post-traumatic stress disorder
(PTSD) is an issue for many
service members. It can be hard
on the family too. PTSD may
interfere with relationships and
change family life, but with
knowledge and understanding,
the spouse of a service member
suffering from PTSD can help
him or her recover. Knowing
how PTSD affects people may
help a spouse in understand-
ing what a member is going
through.
PTSD is an anxiety disorder
that can occur after one experi-
ences a traumatic event. A trau-
matic event is a life-threaten-
ing occurrence such as military
combat, natural disasters, ter-
rorist incident, serious accident
or violent personal assault.
For most people, PTSD starts
within three months of the trau-
matic event. For others, signs
don't show up until years later.
Acute PTSD lasts less than
three months and chronic PTSD
lasts more than three months.
With delayed PTSD, symptoms
first occur six or more months
following the trauma. Some
people get better within six
months, while others may have
the illness for much longer.
Many people who go through
a traumatic event don't get
PTSD and it isn't clear why
some people develop PTSD and
others don't. How likely some-
one is to get PTSD depends on
many things, such as the inten-
sity of the trauma; if they lost a

When retired combat veteran,
Sergeant Major Michael Adams
was diagnosed with prostate
cancer two years ago, he did
not know about the Department
of Defense (DoD) and National
Cancer Institute (NCI) cancer
clinical trials. He learned about
it through research on the inter-
net to help win the fight against
his disease. Over 25,000 cancer
patients enroll in NCI treatment
clinical trials each year.
"Everyone should be educat-
ed about cancer clinical trials
when they're diagnosed because
there are promising advances in
research out there today," said
Kay Beck, RN, a clinical trials
coordinator. "Clinical trials are
not a last-ditch effort."
An interagency agreement
between the DoD and the NCI
provides TRICARE beneficia-
ries more options for cancer
care and including greater
access to the latest advances in
cancer prevention and treatment
through clinical trials.
Beck authorizes and manag-
es adult and pediatric patients

breast cancer to rare ones such
as Glioblastoma, a type of brain
tumor. Adams talked with Beck
to begin the evaluation and
treatment process.
Beck assisted Adams to find
a clinical trial site at Memorial
Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
in New York State, the clos-
est treatment site to his home.
"This program saved my life,"
he said. "When I first started
and met the surgeon at Sloan-
Kettering, he realized the sever-
ity of my diagnosis and literally
cleared his schedule to make me
his next patient."
During participation in cancer
clinical trials, patients receive
treatment at one of over 2,000
sites that participate in NCI-
sponsored studies including
Military Treatment Facilities
(MTFs), civilian providers and
comprehensive cancer centers.
"A preauthorization from a
regional TRICARE contractor
is required," said Beck. Costs
for screening tests to determine
clinical trial eligibility, and the
associated costs of participa-
tion in cancer clinical trials are
covered for TRICARE ben-
eficiaries. Family members of

MTFs or in civilian health care

"It's fantastic for TRICARE
to cover cancer clinical trials
as a benefit," said Adams. "I
highly recommend other mili-

TRICARE-eligible cancer
patients are involved in NCI-

Phase II trials typically study
the effectiveness of new drugs

Brewer has experienced
the program from both sides.
A graduate of NSI in 2000,
Brewer was commissioned an
officer in 2002 after graduating
from the University of Colorado
at Boulder.
"When I was a third class
petty officer stationed at NSGA
(Naval Security Group Activity)
Hanza, Okinawa, Japan, I read
an article on commissioning
programs in the Link magazine
while on watch," says Brewer.
"The possibility to become a
Naval officer somehow became
real because of that article, and

"Selectees are provided a
maximum of 36 months of full-
time, year-round study to com-
plete a baccalaureate degree,"
says Kempf. "Participants
remain on active duty while
attending college and receive
pay, allowances, benefits, and
privileges of their current pay
grade. In addition, selectees
receive an education voucher
for up to $10,000 per year to
cover tuition, fees, and book
costs."
For those who want to enter
the program, Brewer offers this
advice, "Focus on doing your
job the best you can, let your
chain of command know you
are interested in becoming a


Naval officer and the rest will
follow."
The deadline for applications
for the FY-09 STA-21 program
is July 1, 2008. Application
packages must be postmarked

CPPD Expands Navy College Program Distance


Learning Partne


By Ron Smith
Center for Personal and Professional
Development, Voluntary Education
Public.;--
The Center for Personal and
Professional Development
(CPPD) has expanded the num-
ber of academic institutions
in the Navy College Program
Distance Learning Partnership
(NCPDLP) program to 30 part-
ners.
Prior to the expansion, there
were 17 academic institutions
that provided associates- and
bachelors-level degrees through
distance learning (DL) methods.
The goal of the NCPDLP is
to support both the lifestyle of
the mobile Sailor, as well the
Sailor's education ambitions.
Courses are offered in a variety


of formats, such as CD-ROM,
videotape, paper, or via the
Web. DL degrees may be rel-
evant to each rating and make
maximum use of military pro-
fessional training and experi-
ence to fulfill degree require-
ments. They may also provide
a path for a Sailor to pursue a
degree of their choosing.
Someone pursuing a DL
degree within their rating field
will be offered more nontradi-
tional course credits then some-
one who is looking for a degree
outside of their normal field.
These new DL degree programs
open many more options to the
Sailor. Some DL degree pro-
grams are still under construc-
tion and should be available
over the next several months.

"NCPDLP is just another

of the education programs the
Navy has available for Sailors,"
said Redd-Clary.
CPPD and the Navy College
Program are responsible for a
variety of education programs,
including but not limited to
the administration of the 52


Navy College offices locat-
ed around the world, as well
as the operations of the Navy

From Naval Air Forces Public,. ;-
At approximately 7:50 a.m.
local time on May 22, a fire was
detected in the vicinity of the aft
air conditioning and refrigera-
tion space and auxiliary boiler
room aboard the aircraft carrier
USS George Washington (CVN
73).
The fire spread to sever-
al spaces via a cableway and
caused extreme heat in some of
the ship spaces, but it was con-
tained and extinguished by the
crew without any serious inju-
ries to personnel. It took several
hours to completely contain and
extinguish the fire.
The ship had been conduct-
ing a routine replenishment at
sea in the Pacific Ocean with
USS Crommelin (FFG 37)
when smoke was observed and
an emergency breakaway was
initiated.
There were no serious inju-
ries. Twenty-three Sailors were
treated for heat stress and one
Sailor was treated for first

degree bums. The ship's crew
was at general quarters for
approximately 12 hours.
"There's only one word
for the effort this team made
to combat the fire and that is
heroic," said USS George
Washington Commanding
Officer Capt. Dave Dykhoff.
"The effectiveness of the dam-
age control effort also clearly
demonstrated the quality of our
training, procedures and sys-
tems."
The ship's propulsion plant
was not damaged and there
were no reactor safety issues as
a result of the fire. The ship has
full propulsion capability.

The Navy's official Web site,
Navy.mil, launched several
enhancements on May 14, with
improvements and upgrades
that extend beyond its cosmetic
appearance.
The new design features
a modular layout, as well as
increased interactivity and
enhanced access to information
within the site.
"We hope the new design
will give greater visibility to
the news and the information
that people look for," said Bill
Spencer, creative director of
Navy.mil. "This is just another
refinement of our original idea."
The key changes to the site,
however, are the introduction

of Navy.mil Underway, a low
bandwidth version of the site
suited for ships on deployment
- and Navy.mil Mobile which
allows Sailors to access the site
from a mobile device such as a
cellular phone.
"The Underway page allows
those with low bandwidth to
get the information they need
from the site," said Spencer.
"The core of this update is to
push Navy information to mul-
tiple platforms, whether on a
desktop, at sea, or on a mobile
device."
Given the fact that Sailors are
serving around the globe at sea
and ashore, the new sites will
make it easier for them to stay
informed on what's going on
around the fleet.
"The introduction of the


mobile and underway sites pro-
vides greater access for Sailors
to get the news when and where
they want," said Capt. Gordon
Hume, Naval Media Center
commanding officer.
Navy.mil was recently rec-
ognized as a 2008 Webby

of Defense Thomas Jefferson

You Need a Healthcare Plan F


By Lt.j.g Kirt Marsh
RLSO Southeast
We all hope we stay healthy
for the indefinite future. We
hope that our family and friends
can rely on us to be there for
them. But what if something
happens? What will happen to
you and who will make medical
decisions for you if you can't?
The military is a profession
with inherent risks. This kind
of career presents unique situ-
ations, not including the ordi-
nary risks of illness, injury, or
the dangers of everyday living.
Having a plan in the event of
a crisis is a wise idea for your
professional life, but you need a


plan for your personal life too.
Besides protecting yourself
and your family financially
through a will, life insurance,
investment or other estate plan-
ning device, you need to make
arrangements ahead of time
regarding medical decisions.
If you are incapacitated, who
will make the medical decisions
for you? What if that person
is incapacitated, unavailable,
unwilling or has predeceased?
Documents such as a durable
power of attorney for health-
care matters and a living will
take a short time to create, but
make a long-lasting differ-
ence. Because we cannot pre-


dict when a medical issue may
arise, it is important to check
into these options now.
A durable power of attorney
for healthcare matters is a spe-
cial power of attorney. Through
this document, you appoint
one person, and maybe even
an alternate person, to serve as
your agent for matters dealing
with your healthcare only. It
differs from a general durable
power of attorney in that you
give no authority for your agent
to act on your behalf for any
other issue. You can include
provisions about selecting
healthcare providers and facili-
ties, authorizing the release of


medical information, donating
organs, and arranging for hos-
pice care. This power of attor-
ney is a springing power of
attorney; it becomes effective
only upon your incapacitation
or inability to make decisions
yourself, rather than upon your
mere signature.
A living will is another option
you have to prepare in advance
for healthcare issues. A living
will is a statement of your intent
to be removed from life-sustain-
ing treatment, and is only effec-
tive in the event that you are
in a persistent vegetative state,
you cannot communicate, you
do not have a reasonable medi-


or Your
cal probability of recovering
capacity, and medical personnel
have diagnosed you as such. A
living will is separate and inde-
pendent of a power of attorney
for healthcare matters, but you
can still name one person, and
include an alternate, as your
agent to carry out your wishes.
Many families have been
devastated by the conflict that
arises when nobody knows who
is in charge of life-and-death
medical decisions. It is a con-
flict that is entirely preventable.
At Region Legal Service
Office Southeast, we can help
you draft a power of attorney
for healthcare matters and a

Navy Spells Out Policy On Tattoos, Body Art, Piercings


By MCCS(SW/AW)
Bill Houlihan
Navy Personnel Command Communica-
tions
The Navy's regulations
regarding tattoos, body art and/
or mutilations and dental orna-
mentation is clear as to what
Sailors can do and can't do.
It's up to you to abide by those
rules.
In 2006, a message was
released that underscores Navy


policy that already prohibits
any body art deemed prejudicial
to good order, discipline and
morale or of a nature to bring
discredit upon the naval service.
Navy policy stipulates that
any tattoo/body art/brand that
is obscene, sexually explic-
it or advocates discrimina-
tion of any sort is prohibited.
Administrative separation could
result for personnel disregard-
ing this guidance.


Four criteria have been issued
to commanders to assist them in
determining whether a tattoo,
body art or brand should be per-
mitted: content, location, size
and whether the item is required
for cosmetic purposes.
Location is as important as the
content of the tattoo. Tattoos/
body art/brands cannot be vis-
ible through the white uniform
and cannot be on the head, face,
neck or scalp regions. Items on


the lower arm can be no larger
than the wearer's hand, fingers
closed.
The message also points out
Navy policy restricting inten-
tional mutilation of any sort.
This is defined as radical altera-
tion of the body, head, face
or skin for the purpose of an
abnormal appearance.
Dental ornamentation the
use of gold, platinum or other
veneers or caps for decorative


purposes is also prohibited.
Waivers for pre-existing con-
ditions will be considered on
a case-by-case basis by local
commanders.
They have discretion to
determine whether removal
is required, but items may be
waived if they are not preju-
dicial to good order, discipline
and morale.
Even if body art/tattoos/
branding/mutilation occurred


prior to the Navy's original
guidance released in January
2003, commanders still have the
option to recommend separation
if medical authorities determine
removal is not feasible.
Amplification on this policy,
waiver applications and waiv-
er eligibility can be found in
NAVADMIN 110/06.
