Fourth Fleet Is Official


Voice Your

Opinion
Commander, Navy
Installations Command
(CNIC) is providing an oppor-
tunity for Sailors, family
members and military retirees
to help shape the future of its
Fleet and Family Readiness
(F&FR) programs by par-
ticipating in the 2008 F&FR
Customer Satisfaction Survey
through Aug. 7.
The survey will permit cus-
tomers of Fleet and Family
Readiness programs to voice
their opinions on a variety of
topics. F&FR programs being
surveyed include Child and
Youth Programs, Fleet and
Family Support Programs,
Morale, Welfare and
Recreation (Liberty, Fitness,
ITT, Movie Theaters, Library/
Resource Centers) and Navy
Gateway Inns and Suites.
The survey will be available
online began July 7 at www.
cfigroup.net/ffr. Customers
can complete the survey while
visiting an F&FR program
location or anywhere with an
Internet connection.
The assessments were
developed in consultation with
Claes Fornell International, an
independent research firm.
The results will provide Navy
leadership with information
that will be used to enhance
current programs and improve
Navy quality of life.
"This is an outstanding
opportunity for our Sailors
and their families to make a
difference in Navywide quali-
ty of life programs," said John
B. Baker, director, Fleet and
Family Readiness programs,
CNIC.

TRICARE Web

En Espafiol
TRICARE Management
Activity (TMA) recently
launched the TRICARE
Beneficiary Web site "en
Espafiol" as part of its
ongoing effort to educate
TRICARE beneficiaries in
both English and Spanish.
"In our efforts to provide
access and quality to health
care as well as good custom-
er service, the new site was
developed to respond to the
health and wellness needs
of our Hispanic commu-
nity," said Army Maj. Gen.
Elder Granger, deputy direc-
tor, TMA. "Coupled with
the release earlier this year
of informational materials in
Spanish, the newly translated
beneficiary site should further
increase access to our diverse
community."
A key feature that has
increased beneficiary satis-
faction on the English Web
site, and is mirrored on the
Spanish Web site, is the "ben-
eficiary profile." By select-
ing beneficiary status, coun-
try, zip code and TRICARE
plan, beneficiaries are able
to receive more customized
information about health care
benefits.

Spanish Beneficiary Web site

Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Gary Roughead speaks at the reestablishment ceremony of the U.S. 4th Fleet held at Naval Station Mayport. U.S. 4th Fleet's mission will
be to direct assigned forces in the U.S. Southern Command Area of Focus and conduct full spectrum of Maritime Security Operations in support of activities that promote
coalition building and deter aggression within the maritime environment.


By MC3 Alan Gragg
U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command
Public.;-
Chief of Naval Operations
Adm. Gary Roughead officially
reestablished U.S. 4th Fleet and
named Rear Adm. Joseph D.
Kernan as its commander dur-
ing a ceremony at Naval Station
Mayport July 12.
The ceremony followed the
U.S. Naval Forces Southern
Command (NAVSO) change of
command, during which Kernan
relieved Rear Adm. James W.
Stevenson Jr.
Kernan, the dual-hatted
NAVSO and 4th Fleet com-
mander, is responsible for
U.S. Navy ships, aircraft and
submarines assigned from
east and west coast fleets to
operate in the U.S. Southern
Command (SOUTHCOM) area
of focus, which encompasses
the Caribbean, Central and
South America and surrounding
waters.
"Reestablishing the Fourth
Fleet affirms our support for,
and our desire to, enhance coop-
erative relationships with the
navies and maritime services
in the Caribbean and Central
and South America. It recogniz-
es the immense importance of
maritime security in the region,"


said Roughead.
"Our maritime strategy rais-
es the importance of forming
global maritime partnerships by
working with international part-
ners as the basis for global mar-
itime security. Reestablishing
Fourth Fleet allows us to more
effectively employ naval forces
to build confidence and trust
among nations through collec-
tive maritime security efforts
that focus on mutual interests."
Fourth Fleet was first estab-
lished in 1943 as one of the
original numbered fleets.
During World War II, the United
States needed a command in
charge of protecting against
raiders, blockade runners and
enemy submarines in the South
Atlantic. Fourth Fleet fulfilled
that mission until it was dises-
tablished in 1950, and U.S. 2nd
Fleet took over its responsibili-
ties.
The new 4th Fleet will be
headquartered in Mayport and
co-located with NAVSO, tak-
ing advantage of the existing
infrastructure, communications
support and personnel already
in place. Fourth Fleet's re-
establishment will not involve
an increase in forces assigned
in Mayport, or result in any per-
manently assigned ships or air-

ceremony.


craft.
With a focus on strengthening
friendships and partnerships,
4th Fleet will directly support
the U.S. Maritime Strategy by
conducting five ongoing mis-


sions: support for peacekeeping,
humanitarian assistance, disas-
ter relief, traditional maritime
exercises and counterdrug sup-
port operations.
"It is an honor to assume


command of U.S. Naval Forces
Southern Command and to be
granted the privilege of reestab-
lishing U.S. 4th Fleet," Kernan

Message In Bottle Finds


Way With Boone


By Ensign Emily S. Castro
USS Boone PAO
USS Boone got an answer to
its message in a bottle.
In October of 2007 USS
Boone (FFG 28) traveled to
Rockport, Massachusetts.
The ship anchored in Sandy
Bay overlooking the coast
of the small patriotic town
of Rockport. The citizens of
Rockport and the crew of Boone
exchanged stories and time to
tour the town and the ship. The
crew participated in softball
games, golf games, and public
service projects. The visit to
Rockport was of historical sig-
nificance because it reflected an
image of inspiration originating
from the powerful history of the
United States Navy.
Boone had a great port visit
and the crew was left with a
positive experience that was
enhanced even further due to
a special request from two of
Rockport's citizens. Rosemary


Lesch and her close friend
Sharon Chace, requested that
Boone's crew throw a message
in a bottle over board in remem-
brance of her sister's late hus-
band Arnold Willhite.
Willhite joined the Navy in
1939 and was at Pearl Harbor
on December 7, 1941. He was
also present at the Peace Treaty
Ceremony in Tokyo Bay in
1945. Willhite graduated from
the Submarine School in New
London in 1942 and served on
submarines for the rest of Word
War II. He passed away on
April 2, 2007.
Rosemary Lesch, one of
Rockport's Harbor Master's,
described an idea she and
Chace, an accomplished poet,
had to honor Willhite. Their
idea was a memory bottle.
The bottle would carry a letter
describing the life of Willhite
and his association with the
sea. His widow, Laura Willhite,
had hoped that the bottle would


Help
make it to Scotland the land
of Jack's ancestry. The plan
called for Lesch to take Chace
out on a pilot boat and meet up
with another friend who would
then deposit the bottle off the
Rockport coast and in the Gulf
Stream.
After the funeral services,
Willhite and Chace decided
to carry out their plan for the
memory bottle. The two women
went out on a patrol boat, but
were turned back because of a
bad storm. When Boone stopped
in Rockport they came up with
an alternate plan.
The day before Boone was
due to depart Lesch approached
the commanding officer and
asked him to launch the bot-
tle during Boone's trip back to
Mayport.
The ship's track took it 100
nm off the coast, in the ideal
position to get the bottle into
the Gulf Stream. Lesch said
See Bottle, Page 9

2 THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, July 17, 2008


CO Column


Last week we welcomed
Rear Adm. Joseph Kernan as
he relieved Rear Adm. James
Stevenson and took command
U.S. Naval Forces Southern
Command and U.S. Fourth
Fleet. The ceremony ended
with the retirement of RDML
Stevenson after 32 years of hon-
orable service to our country.
Chief of Naval Operations Adm.
Gary Roughead, as well as a
host of dignitaries were aboard
for the event and observed the
pride and professionalism all of
you bring to the table each day.
Thanks to everyone involved in
making this ceremony happen.
It was a huge success.
Welcome home goes out to
the men and women aboard
USS Philippine Sea (CG 58)
and the returning crew of HSL-
46 Detachment 5 to Mayport
July 11 after a successful six-


Capt. Aaron Bowman
month deployment conducting
Maritime Security Operations
in the Eastern Mediterranean
Sea. While deployed, the ship
participated in several multi-
lateral exercises with Coalition
partners from Bahrain, New
Zealand, United Arab Emirates,


Qatar and Great Britain.
Additionally, the crew played
an integral part in ARABIAN
SHARK 2008, a multilateral
exercise in the Gulf of Oman
with Bahrain and Pakistan. Well
done, and welcome back to the
best base in the Navy.
Last week was also a historic
one as we welcomed the ITS
"Salvatore" Todaro to Naval
Station Mayport. This was the
first U.S. port call to the United
States from an Italian subma-
rine since World War II. Todaro
is participating in a Joint Task
Force Exercise (JTFX) that
demonstrates the continued
commitment by the U.S. Navy
and Italian Navy in build-
ing strong, working relation-
ships. Special thanks goes out
to the men and women of the
USS Klakring (FFG 42) for the
superb job they did as host ship


for this monumental visit.
Our safety department is
committed to seeing that we are
all up to speed on our quali-
fications, so lets take a round
turn on your ESAMS training
and departmental MAP inspec-
tions. In October, "mock"
OSHA inspections will be held
throughout the base in prepa-
ration for our upcoming VPP/
STAR certification. As always,
the safety team is standing by
to help. Please be safe in every-
thing you do. Since May 23, 11
Navy people have died in mis-
haps throughout the fleet.
September is just around the
corner and I just want to say
that if you haven't been hit-
ting the books you are behind
the curve. Making rate is not
only increased responsibility,
but more money in your wallet.
The Navy offers a wide range


of support for Sailors and their
families, but YOU and YOU
alone drive the wheel to your
career. I want to see everyone
move up the ladder, so study
hard and it will happen.
On Monday we had our
tenth turtle nest show up on the
beach. We only had a total of
three last year and we probably
have more to come. The hatch-
lings will start showing up any
day now and if we have to hold
and release till dusk we will do
the best we can to get word out
so everyone can see. If you are
on the beach and ever see a sea
turtle, baby turtles, or evidence
of a new nest, please contact
security as quickly as possible
so we can get word to the game
warden or certified sea turtle
handlers. Been noticing a lot
of trash left on the beach as of
late. Please do you part and


don't leave trash on the beach
and if you see trash, pick it up.
The Naval Station doesn't have
any manning for beach clean
up, it has to be done by all of
us just like the rest of the base.
One last reminder on the way
we have the beach set up: From
the Jetties to the CPO club is
fishing area only, CPO club to
light house is swimming only,
light house to Hanna Park is
swimming and surfing.
Thanks to everyone for being
part of this great Navy team on
the best base in the Navy. Your
hard work never goes unno-
ticed. Also, keep your great
suggestions coming in at aaron.
bowman@navy.mil or the CO's
suggestion box located at the
base galley. Your concerns are
my concerns and I want to hear
what you have to say.


Hurricane Recovery Guidance Available


From Lifelines.com
Experts from several Navy
commands have compiled
and published a pocket-sized
48-page booklet of safety and
health guidance for Navy and
Marine Corps personnel recov-
ering from a hurricane.
"Guidance for Navy and
Marine Corps Personnel
Recovering from a Hurricane
Disaster" was compiled
by experts from Bureau
of Medicine and Surgery;
Commander, Navy Reserve
Force; Commander, Navy
Installations Command;
Task Force Navy Family;
the Naval Safety Center; the


Environmental Health Center;
and representatives from the
Gulf Coast region. These com-
mand experts referenced current
health and safety practices and
guidance in the wake of a hur-
ricane for the booklet.
"There was an urgent need
for this type of document," said
Lt. Tom Shu, Task Force Navy
Family medical officer and lead
officer in the development of
this booklet. "Information is one
of the most important commodi-
ties following a disaster. In the
wake of the recent hurricanes,
there was a tremendous amount
of information being put out by
various government agencies,


but it wasn't readily accessible
to our Sailors and Marines. We
took that data and compiled it
into one concise, pocket-sized
book."
Task Force Navy Family dis-
tributed more than 2,500 cop-
ies to Navy and Marine Corps
personnel, retirees and Navy
civilians in the areas affected
by hurricanes Katrina, Rita and
Wilma.
"Guidance for Navy and
Marine Corps Personnel
Recovering from a Hurricane
Disaster" is available on the
Task Force Navy Family Web
site at www.navy.mil/tfnf.html.
The booklet includes guid-


ance for returning home, cop-
ing with a disaster, dealing
with mold, recovering personal
items, cleaning and repairing
homes, as well as resources for
more information.
Task Force Navy Family, in
conjunction with subject mat-
ter experts from multiple Navy
commands, is continuing to
publish guidance and frequent-
ly asked questions on subjects
important to Navy families
affected by the hurricanes in
2005. The task force is coordi-
nating full-spectrum commu-
nity service operations in order
to provide a rapid return to a
stable environment for affected


Navy family members.
The Navy family includes
Sailors, Department of the Navy
civilians, family members and
retirees.
Navy families affected by hur-
ricanes Katrina, Rita or Wilma
can obtain immediate person-
nel-related assistance through
the Navy's toll-free number,
877-414-5358, or obtain further
information by visiting Task
Force Navy Family Web site at
www.navy.mil/tfnf.html.
Community Support Centers
(CSC) are another resource for
hurricane-impacted personnel
and families. The CSC staff can
provide one-on-one consulta-


tion, assistance with evacuation
allowances, emergency assis-
tance, military family hotlines,
emotional support, school and
community information, and
all other appropriate assistance.
For a complete list of contacts
at CSCs, please visit the Task
Force Navy Family Web site or
call 800-372-5463.
Navy family members can
also contact the Task Force
Navy Family Ombudsman
Resource Center for questions
or referrals relating to any needs
as a result of hurricanes Katrina,
Rita or Wilma by calling 866-
345-8179.

USS Doyle Sailors Hit NASCAR Pits


By Ensign Jason Bilbro
USS Doyle PAO
Five deserving Doyle Sailors
spent their day at the Sparta,
Kentucky Speedway on June
14, as part of the Navy's Fleet
Honoree Program.
The Navy Motorsports Fleet
Honoree Program, which each
year honors 33 of the top per-
forming commands fleet-wide,
selected USS Doyle (FFG 39)
as one of its esteemed winners
for FY08. The command then
selected Lt.j.g Eric Metcalf,
Senior Chief Quartermaster
(SW/AW) Antonio Perryman,
Machinery Repairman 1st Class
(SW) Henry Krog, Gas Turbine
System Technician Electrical 3rd
Class (SW) Robert Lodato, and
Seaman Kenneth Lester as the
Sailors to receive the honor of
attending the race.
The group arrived on race-
day at 5 p.m., and were greeted
by Lt.j.g. Andrea Ross, of Navy
Fleet Motorsports, who escorted
them around the track.

Navy Motorsports driver Brad
Keselowski met the group on
the way out of the ESPN booth,
and escorted them to his per-

thanked the group for their
service to the country, and
explained how he prepares for
the race on race-day. He also
had the chance to talk about his
win the previous week.
The group left Brad
Keselowski to prepare for
the race, and after a short
walk, found themselves at the
famous "Pit Row." The Doyle
Sailors were given the oppor-
tunity to see each car at arms-
length, prior to the start of
the race. Following this, they


discussed his role, and how he
interfaced with the driver dur-
ing the race.
As the race started, Perryman
and Lester, selected to be
honorary pit-crew members,
donned Navy Motorsports jer-
seys and set to work in the pits.
Additionally, each Sailor took
a turn actually sitting with the
crew chief for 30 laps, and lis-
tened in to the coordination
between the chief, the spotter,
and the driver.
"By far my favorite part of
the day was being able to sit in
with the crew chief, and listen
in to the conversation between
the chief, the driver, and the
spotter," said Lester. "I'm
a huge fan of NASCAR, and
never would have imagined I
would get to attend a race like
this."
Although the NAVY car did
not win its second race in a
row, it didn't matter to Doyle's
Sailors.

USS Carney Embarks 'Tigers' For Underway


From USS Carney
An underway period is typi-
cally a time of separation for
Sailors and their families. But
during Carney's transit from
Mayport to Philadelphia, June
27-30, it was a time for Carney
Sailors to share what they do at
sea with 37 family and friends
embarked for "Tiger Cruise."
From the time Sea and
Anchor was set, Tigers were
allowed to observe the normal
operations underway, as well as
some special demonstrations to
see how Sailors work, live and
train.
During their stay on board,
each tiger was given a "Tiger
PQS," which provided guid-
ance and a list of tasks to help
them determine what ques-
tions to ask and places to visit.
Through tours of major control
stations, they were able to gain
a much better appreciation of
life at sea and how a ship oper-
ates. Events throughout the day
demonstrated the ship's capa-
bilities in weapons firing, man


overboard recovery, and VBSS
team operations. Additionally,
Tigers were afforded the oppor-
tunity to see basic shipboard
Damage Control, and even to
don SCBAs.
While the Tigers certainly got
to see what a U.S. Navy war-
ship is capable of, they also
were given a greater apprecia-
tion for the military lifestyle
and how their Sailors live. With
an early morning reveille and
events throughout the entire
day, Tigers got to feel the tempo
of shipboard life.
"It's great being at sea. I'd
much rather go to sea on a
warship than a cruise ship
any day, because this is what
being underway is about" said
Dan Bowser, father of Fire
Controlman 1st Class (SW)
Bowser.
In addition, instruction was
given to each Tiger on making
a military rack, presenting a
squared away living space, and
taking a Navy shower. Through
the entire experience, Tigers


felt the importance of stand-
ing watch, the pride in seeing a
mission accomplished, and the
satisfaction of a successful team
effort.
Although the underway peri-
od was certainly its own reward,
it was not the only one sched-
uled. Events such as Ice Cream
Social, Movie Night, Bingo,
and of course, "Carney-aoke"
played a prominent role in help-
ing the Tigers enjoy themselves
on board. As the cruise came to
an end, Tigers were given a cer-
tificate designating them "Tiger
Surface Warfare Specialists" as
a result of their hard work and
achievements.

Exercise Strengthens Regional Partnerships


By MC2 J.T. Bolestridge
DESRON 40
Guided-missile destroyer USS
Farragut (DDG 99) and Guided-
missile frigate USS Kauffman
(FFG 59) of Destroyer
Squadron (DESRON) 40 com-
pleted bilateral exercises with
the Ecuadorian Navy on July 7
off the coast of Ecuador.
The day-long evolution
included Maritime Interdiction
Operations (MIO), a simulated
bilateral peacekeeping effort,
an Air Defense Exercise and
a Photo Exercise to demon-
strate interoperability between
the naval forces. Cmdr. Scott
Dugan, Farragut's Commanding
Officer, said the exercises were
designed to strengthen the rela-
tionship between the US and
Ecuadorian Navies.
"Only by working and com-
municating with our partner
nations can we hope to have the
relationships and trust needed
in the event of a crisis requir-
ing a multinational effort," said
Dugan. "We conduct these
operations to train together and
learn from each other."
Seven ships from Ecuador
and the U.S. participated in the
exercise, which was designed
to strengthen friendships, fos-
ter mutual cooperation and fur-
ther the commitment to regional

many challenges that require
cooperative solutions to over-
come, which is why multilateral
and bilateral exercises such as
this are important to ensure that
our two Navies will be able to
work together to defend any-
thing that threatens those free
shipping lanes efficiently and
professionally, should the need
arise."
The U.S. Navy has a long
history of training and con-
ducting exercises with the
Ecuadorian Military. Most
recently, the Ecuadorian Navy
corvette "Loja" participated
in UNITAS Pacific alongside
the US, Peruvian, Chilean, and
Colombian Navies off the coast
of Peru last week. Next month,
Ecuador will once again par-
ticipate alongside the US in
the Pan-American exercise FA
PANAMAX, simulating the
multinational defense of the
Panama Canal.
"Trust and interoperability
between the US Navy and Latin
American Navies cannot be

Sailors assist the Coast Guard
International Training Division
at UNITAS Pacific Phase 49-08
in Peru.
The Coast Guard International
Training Division conducted
a seminar to exchange knowl-
edge with Navies from Ecuador,
Chile and Peru on hand-to-hand
combat and Vehicle Boarding
Search and Seizure (VBSS)
during UNITAS Pacific Phase
49-08.
"It's a great opportunity to
come out here and be part of
this exercise," said U.S. Coast
Guard Chief Boatswain's Mate
Brett Miller, Seminar Leader.
"It's our job to be here and con-
duct this type of seminar."
Sailors also learned the prop-
er way to use non-lethal hand-
to-hand combat techniques.
"It's good to know the proper
way to execute these techniques
because it can cause injury to
the human body," said Chilean
Sailor Felipe Rubilar. The
training also showed the semi-
nar leaders and seminar partici-
pants, how closely related or


different the tactics where from
each country."
One part of VBSS is to learn
the proper procedures on how
to board a vessel.
According to U.S. Coast
Guard Lt. Nelson Santiago,
Seminar Leader, all the board-
ing procedures conducted in the
seminar go into effect during an
actual event.
"USS Forrest Sherman's
VBSS team was honored
to take part in the UNITAS
training with various South
American boarding teams," said
Chief Cryptologic Technician
(Maintenance) (SW) Michael
Flowers. "Working alongside
the Coast Guard, we were able
to share basic defensive tactics
and boarding procedures at the
same time building vital rela-
tions."
The seminar also gave Sailors
the chance to improve commu-
nication skills and share ideas.
"The communicating portion
of the seminar was difficult, but
the Latin countries pick up very
quickly by the way we move
and use facial expressions," said
Miller. "This was a great time to
exchange information and learn
from each other."

she was thrilled and the deal
was sealed.
On Oct. 15, 2007 Boone got
underway from Rockport once
in the Gulf Stream a ceremo-
ny was held on the flight deck.
Willhite's memory bottle was
thrown into the sea, in hopes
that it would reach Scotland.
Miraculously, on May 17,
2008 the memory bottle was
found not in Scotland as was
originally hoped, but Portugal.
Andre Azevedo found the
bottle while walking in the
sands of Vila ChA beach, near
Vila do Conde, north of Oporto,
Portugal.
Coincidently, Azevedo's
friends are scuba divers, and
their favorite diving spot is a
WWII German submarine U-
1277. Azevedo shared the mes-
sage in the memory bottle with
his friends. Delfim Trancoso, a

ed to the message with a letter
to Chace describing their dis-
covery.
Chace passed on the informa-
tion that the bottle was found to
a very pleased Willhite family.
Chace was very thankful for
Boone's willingness to support
the message in the bottle; she
said she was inspired by the dis-
play of patriotism and pride that
connected the Willhite family to
Boone with the following son-

that the bottle had been recov-

the finding of the bottle made
Willhites's last days happier

Vicksburg Completes Safe Maintenance Period


By Ensign Marc Schron
USS Vcksburg
USS Vicksburg has success-
fully completed their mainte-
nance availability period.
Accomplished were a total
of 58 major alterations, includ-
ing 11 ship alterations, one
mechanical alteration, 11 ord-
nance alterations, 20 engineer-
ing changes, five fuel changes,
and eight software upgrades.
During this three-month
period, the ships' force worked
alongside DoD engineers and
civilian contractors to ensure a
productive, safe and effective
maintenance period. In par-
ticular, the support of Atlantic
Marine Mayport (AMM) con-
tributed greatly to the success
of the upgrades.
In addition to initially planned
upgrades, a large amount of
growth work was accom-
plished. Due to the resourceful-
ness of the Southeast Regional
Maintenance Center (SERMC)
staff, Vicksburg was able to

Visit Brings Simpson Sailors, Locals Together


By MCC Suzanne Speight
USS Simpson
The crew of USS Simpson
(FFG 56) spent this year's 4th
of July in St. Lucia. Simpson's
nearly 200 Sailors were not so
much celebrating independence,
but our interdependence, by par-
ticipating in numerous activi-
ties designed to strengthen rela-
tions between the United States
and the island nation. The
ship's crew presented Project
Handclasp donations to the
Salvation Army and Red Cross,
conducted Subject Matter
Expert Exchanges, refurbished
a local school, and enjoyed the
sights and hospitality of the
Caribbean island nation.
The focus of the visit was
Theater Security Cooperation
(TSC), designed to build and
strengthen effective alliances
and friendships, develop partner
nation capabilities and preserve
the ability to respond multilater-
ally to safeguard U.S. security.
Caribbean countries, Latin
America and the U.S. all share
common interests and concerns.
So visits like this provide a
great opportunity to foster
friendly, mutual cooperation and
understanding between partner
nations. The port call also pro-
vided a good opportunity for the
crew to prepare for similar visits
overseas on deployment.
"This visit really set the tone
for our crew when we go on
deployment," said Simpson
Command Master Chief Joe
Clark. "It's hard work, but fun.
And we are always pleased with
the end result, it was a great
time."
The ship docked at Castries,
St. Lucia early on July 2, and
the crew began a flurry of activ-
ity as Sailors delivered dona-
tions of sewing machines, medi-
cal supplies and toys to both the
local Salvation Army and Red
Cross. Another group headed
over to the Gordon and Walcott
Memorial Methodist School,
where a team of 25 Simpson
Sailors helped paint, repair and
refurbish the school building,
and spent some time with the
students.
"We really had a good time
with the kids, and I think they
really enjoyed meeting us," said
Ens. Brittany Tabb. The local
television news came out and
interviewed Tabb and school
Principal Luceita Gajadhar, and
the group presented the school

"It was a good game, good

Although team Simpson played
a great game, team St. Lucia
came out on top, defeating the
Simpson Sailors, 3-1. After
the game, Sailors and Police
enjoyed hot dogs and hamburg-
ers, and invited residents of a


local Red Cross shelter to come
over and share in the food.
Heading back to homeport, the
Simpson crew, armed with new
knowledge of a neighboring
nation, returned back into ship's
routine of training for their next
deployment.

By MC2 Michael Buslovich
USS Simpson
Have you ever wondered
what it would be like to be a
captain of a U.S. Navy ship?
Operations Specialist 2nd Class
Chris Teter, crew member of the
USS Simpson (FFG 56) recent-
ly had the chance to be "CO
for a day" and experience the
responsibilities that go with the
captains hat.
"He's realizing whatever deci-
sion you make there are con-
sequences" said Cmdr. Edwin
Kaiser, captain of the USS
Simpson during the morning
brief with the ships executive
officer and Command Master
Chief in the CO's office. While
at the morning briefing, Teter
got his first taste of that decision
making when the ship's sup-
ply officer came in to discuss
meal planning for an upcom-
ing dignitary luncheon. "I think
we should go with steak and
shrimp, and maybe some soup,"
he said.
After the briefing, the CO
of the day accompanied Cmdr.
Kaiser to the ship's bridge to
face the challenges of being
at sea on a Navy fast frigate.
Sitting in the CO's chair was
not something Teter took lightly.
Although, he said, "it's fun and


Sailor
it sure beats watch standing".
Following the morning
announcements over the 1MC
by Teter, it was time for an
inspection of various depart-
ments, from engineering to
admin, to aft steering, to the
mess decks. "It's given me a
perspective of all that the CO is
responsible for," he said.
Teter was not just picked
out of a hat to be the CO for a
day. He had to submit an essay
explaining why he wanted to try
his hand at it. In his essay he
wrote about how he thought it
would be a good opportunity to
expand his leadership abilities.
Later in the day, Teter took
time to send out a Bravo Zulu
over the 1MC to several of his
crewmembers, acknowledging
their hard work. By 8 p.m., it
was time for Teter to turn back
into a second class petty officer.
He said the day lived up to his
expectations.
"Wearing the captain's hat
gave me the chance to experi-
ence the leadership and respon-
sibility he lives every day," said
Teter. At the end of the day,
he had this advice for the crew.
"Take care of your family and
they will take care of you."

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.

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.

CSCS CO Visits


By STGC R. J. Hill
CSCS Pubhlc.;-
Capt. Stephen W. Hampton,
commanding officer of Center
for Surface Combat Systems
(CSCS), visited CSCS
Detachment Mayport recently to
review the detachment's prog-
ress in training the fleet.
While in town, Hampton held
a CO's call and awards cere-
mony for CSCS DET Mayport
personnel, visited with local
area DESRONs to discuss their
training needs, and provided his
philosophies for future improve-
ments in the training CSCS pro-
vides.
CSCS is headquartered
in Dahlgren, Va. The train-
ing command's domain
encompasses detachments in
Yokosuka, Japan, Pearl Harbor,
Hawaii, Everett, Wash., San
Diego, Calif., Great Lakes, Ill.,
Norfolk, Va., Wallops Island,
Va., and Mayport. Its mission is
to develop and deliver the most
relevant and effective training
and education to surface com-
bat systems and operations Sea
Warriors to successfully con-
duct combat operations at sea.


CSCS DET Mayport is
located at the end of Baltimore
Street, next to the jetties,
in Building 1556. They pro-
vide many training opportuni-
ties for local area commands
with courses covering every-
thing from Radar Navigation
to Single Ship ASW to Combat
Systems Cooling to Advanced
Air Intercept Controller
to Basic RHIB Coxswain.
Primary rates involved are
Fire Control Technician,
Sonar Technician, Operations
Specialist, Cryptological
Technician, Boatswain Mate,
and Engineman
During Hampton's visit, he
discussed the "Kill Chain" phi-
losophy with CSCS staff and
local area DESRON commo-
dores, a step-by-step process
dedicated to ensuring ordnance
on target, starting with the basic
levels of training, and culmi-
nating with advance shipboard
training. This concept is lead-
ing CSCS training commands
into a more productive and suc-
cessful regimen for our fleets
present and future training
requirements.

Worldwide Conference


Trains EFMP Reps


By Marsha Childs
NH Jax Marketing
Hospital Corpsman First
Class Nathan Blosser, the
Exceptional Family Member
Program (EFMP) coordinator at
the Naval Branch Health Clinic
in Gulfport, Miss., remembers
the rewarding feeling he got
helping a Seabee deployed to
Kuwait in February 2008.
The Sailor's wife was hos-
pitalized at National Naval
Medical Center Bethesda under-
going extensive treatment for a
blood clot to the brain. Blosser
served as a liaison between the
sponsor, the patient and the
health care team to exchange
information and ensure timely
enrollment in the EFMP. The
Sailor returned home on emer-
gency leave to be with his wife.
Blosser said, "He was very
grateful and I had the satisfac-
tion of knowing they were get-
ting the proper care."
Blosser and more than 75
EFMP command representatives
attended the worldwide EFMP
Conference from June 24-26 at
Naval Air Station Jacksonville,
Fla. to gain a better understand-
ing of the program and their
role. The EFMP provides coor-
dinated medical, educational,
community and personnel sup-
port to active duty military
families with long-term special
needs.
The Chief of Naval
Personnel's Personal and Family
Readiness Policy Analyst and
EFMP Manager Marcia Hagood
coordinated the conference.
She chose Jacksonville because
of its Category Five status-one
of five stateside duty stations
where EFMP families may be
given a long-term assignment.
She said, "The EFM program
ensures family members are
in a location where their needs
are well met and allows the
service members to focus on
their career." Patients in this
category require highly special-
ized, complex medical, mental
or education services most of
which are provided in the civil-
ian community.

Taborn assisted with the coor-

cial needs at the EFMP worldwide conference held June 24-26 at

dination and site logistics of
the conference. She said, "It
is important that EFMP reps
overseas and in CONUS attend
this training and network with
each other. They are going to
be dealing with the special chal-
lenges of these families. They
need a good understanding of
the program and the resources
available to them. The EFMP
coordinators match duty stations
with needs of the family mem-
bers. That is why this training
is so important," she explained.
Work and Family Life
Specialist Diane Brown trav-
eled from Millington, Tenn. to
learn more about her collateral
duties as an EFMP representa-
tive. She works at the Fleet and
Family Support Center (FFSC)
and assists families with reloca-
tion information that includes
medical and educational infor-
mation, along with related com-
munity agency referrals and
information about housing. "It
is very eye-opening, very chal-
lenging and a lot of very good
information," she said.
On the final day of the
conference, Naval Hospital
Commanding Officer Capt.
Raquel Bono thanked the audi-
ence. She spoke of the chal-
lenges military families with


special needs face in Key West,
Fla. Bono has oversight for
Naval Branch Health Clinic
Key West and ensures they are
well served. She explained how
important it is for these fami-
lies to be identified before they
are sent to locations that are
medically underserved like Key
West.
Bono said, "We have to do the
work up front. I can't tell you
how important your jobs are to
get these families identified
early before they receive orders
to ensure the services they need
are available. In order to get
them continuity of care there
(Key West), we have to send
them to Miami to get that spe-
cialized care. You can under-
stand how that presents chal-
lenges. We are talking about
time, money and emotional
expense to the families. What
you do is extremely important."
Enrollment in the EFMP
identifies family members with
long-term needs for special
medical and education servic-
es. It ensures these families are
located at duty stations where
specialized medical and educa-
tion needs can be met. To learn
more about the program, visit
www.npc.navy.mil/channels or

Mayport Health Promotion by the Ocean presents skin cancer information to the Youth Center's sum-
mer camp children and staff in recognition of Skin Cancer Awareness month. For more information
on the prevention of skin cancer, call the Wellness Center at 270-5251.


Fun In The Sun Safely


From Health Promotion by the Ocean
Health Promotion by the
Ocean recognizes July as sun
safety month. The skin is the
body's largest organ. It protects
against heat, sunlight, injury and
infection. The skin also helps
control body temperature and
stores water, fat, and Vitamin D.
Skin cancer can occur any-
where on the body, but it is
most common in skin that has
been exposed to sunlight, such
as the face, neck, hands, and
arms. Anything that increases
your chance of getting a disease
is called a risk factor. Having a
risk factor does not mean that
you will get cancer. But, people
who think they may be at risk
should discuss this with their
doctor.


Risk factors for skin cancer
include the following:
*Being exposed to a lot of
natural or artificial sunlight.
*Having a fair complexion
(blond or red hair, fair skin,
green or blue eyes, history of
freckling).
*Having scars or bums on the
skin.
*Being exposed to arsenic.
*Having chronic skin inflam-
mation or skin ulcers.
*Being treated with radiation.
*Taking immunosuppressive
drugs (for example, after an
organ transplant).
*Having actinic keratosis.
Here are some tips to protect
your skin:
*Wear protective clothing
such as hats, sunglasses, and a


shirt with your swim suit.
*Seek the shade between
10:00 am and 4:00 pm.
*Choose a broad spectrum
sunscreen with a SPF of at least
15-30.
*Wear sunscreen when you go
outside, even on cloudy days.
*Apply sunscreen 15-30 min-
utes prior to going outdoors.
*Reapply sunscreen every 2
hours, especially if swimming
or sweating.
*Be sure to get all areas of the
skin exposed to the sun.
Did you know that
Jacksonville residents experi-
ence 221 sunny days per calen-
dar year? Please take the steps
listed above to protect you and
your family. Now, lather up and
dive into some summer fun!

Vietnam Vets To Participate In Mayport Ceremony


From Ander Crenshaw 's Office
Congressman Ander
Crenshaw announced he will
again recognize the contribu-
tions of Vietnam War veterans
living in the 4th Congressional
District of Florida by presenting
them with certificates of Special
Congressional Recognition in
honor of their service to our
country. Last year's ceremony
acknowledged 269 veterans.
This year's recognition ceremo-
ny will be held on Nov. 7, 2008,
at Naval Station Mayport, but
to participate, all eligible vet-
erans must register before Oct.
3, 2008.


Members of the armed forces
who were awarded either the
Vietnam Service Medal or the
Vietnam Campaign Medal are
eligible for this year's cer-
emony. The Vietnam Service
Medal was awarded to those
who served in Vietnam and
its contiguous waters and air-
space between 3 July 1965 and
28 March 1973. In addition,
personnel serving in Thailand,
Laos or Cambodia in direct sup-
port of operations in Vietnam
during the same time period
were also eligible for the medal.

By MCC(SW) Maria Yager
Navy Personnel Command Public

Secretary of the Navy
Donald C. Winter visited Navy
Personnel Command (NPC)
June 26 for a first-hand look at
the Navy's promotion and selec-
tion board process.
"I'm very impressed with the
process, the facilities and the
people who are engaged with
all that. I think the process has
been designed to afford maxi-
mum opportunities for Sailors
to be able to be effectively and


properly selected -- to be able to
give those with the best records
the greatest opportunity for
advancement," said Winter.
Eligible Sailors can improve
their chances by ensuring their
Official Military Personnel File
(OMPF) is up to date and accu-
rate. The OMPF is the record
reviewed by the selection board.
Sailors going before a board
should review their OMPF at
least six months prior the start
of a board. This allows Sailors
to take corrective action and
submit a package to the selec-


qualified for the Armed Forces
Expeditionary Medal by ser-
vice in Vietnam between July 1,
1958 and July 3, 1965 will also
be recognized.
The Vietnam Campaign
Medal was awarded to those
who served for six months
in South Vietnam during
the period March 1, 1961
to March 28, 1973 or served
outside the geographical lim-
its of South Vietnam and con-
tributed direct combat support
to the RVN armed forces for
an aggregate of six months.
Criteria for both medals are set

missing from the OMPF that
they would like the board to
consider.
Communication of specific
achievements, including awards
and qualifications received after
package submission deadlines,
may be forwarded by com-
manding officers via message
per BUPERSINST 1430.16F,
chapter 12. All messages to the
board must be received by the

vening date.

and recipients should have the
medal listed on their DD-214s.
If you are a Vietnam vet-
eran and were eligible to
receive either the Vietnam
Service Medal or the Vietnam
Service Medal and live in the
4th Congressional District,
please contact Congressman
Crenshaw's office or go to his
website to obtain an application.
"Vietnam veterans served
our country with honor dur-
ing one of our most tumultu-
ous times as a nation," said
Congressman Crenshaw. "They


r Military
thing a Sailor can do before they
go before the selection board
is to make sure their records
are complete and current. It
is truly unfortunate when we
see Sailors not being able to be
selected because their folders
and files are just not complete,
and that is something that the
individual Sailors have to take
the responsibility to do," said
the Secretary.
Certain updates to a Sailor's
OMPF are initiated automati-
cally by the Navy. For example,
when a Sailor re-enlists, their

when they returned home many
did not receive the recognition
they properly deserved. These
brave individuals helped fight
for freedom and democracy at a
time when their country needed

show our appreciation."
To determine eligibility for
the certificate, veterans must
complete an application and
submit a copy of their service
discharge document. Veterans
must be a current resident of
the 4th Congressional District
of Florida to participate in this


F Record
servicing personnel activity will
send a copy of the Sailor's ser-
vice record to NPC for submis-
sion to their OMPF. Whatever
is submitted may be reviewed
by a selection board.
Other submissions require
action from the Sailor. For
example, Sailors with college
degrees must have their tran-

chief's board lasts approximate-
ly five weeks.


Guidelines For New

PT Uniform Out


From ( of Naval Personnel Public

Sailors now have the regula-
tion and manner of wear for the
Navy's new Physical Training
uniform (PTU) with the release
of NAVADMIN 191/08, July 9.
"Commands should be ready
to hold group PT in the offi-
cial PTU on October first, but
Sailors should know they can
mix and match the shirt and
shorts when exercising on their
own or when on liberty," said
Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson,
Chief of Naval Personnel.
The PTU, now available in
Navy Exchanges, is required
for command and unit physical
training, and the semi-annual
physical fitness assessment
(PFA) beginning October 1. The
PTU may also be worn on and
off base for fitness or leisure,
unless determined otherwise by
regional coordinators or com-
manding officers.
During command exercise
in port, the PTU shirt must be
tucked into the shorts; during
individual PT, or on liberty,


shirts may be worn in or out of
shorts. At sea, the wearing of
the PTU will be at the discretion
of the commanding officer.
The PTU cannot be worn
while in a duty status or when
conducting official business on
base such as visiting medical
treatment, galleys or Personnel
Support Detachments.
Ferguson said the Uniform
Matters Office has received
many useful comments about
the PTU design and quality, and
that the shirt and shorts will be
constantly improved over the
next few years.
"We're listening to your feed-
back. We're already making
improvements in the liner for
the shorts, and we're working
to make the shirt longer and less
transparent when it gets wet,"
he said.

WEEKEND SPECIAL
My favorite game is F ,11 j ,ll 1. I, as well as most people, do not enjoy playing all of the games
some car dealers do, when trying to purchase a vehicle. I would like to invite you to visit my favorite
dealer, where you do not need a magnifying glass to read the fine print, be a lawyer, or an accountant,
' to understand their ad. The price advertised, is the price your pay, including everything, all taxes, fees
and tag... DRIVE OUT!
