New Hours

For PSD
PSD Mayport has changed
its hours of operation.
After a review of customer
volume, PSD found that only
1.7 percent of the total cus-
tomers were being served
after 5 p.m. PSD is currently
open from 7:30 a.m.-9 p.m.,
Monday-Friday and 7:30-
11:30 a.m. on Saturday. The
ID card lab is open from 7:30
a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
Given the demand of the
high-volume hours from 7:30
a.m.-4 p.m., the department is
changing its hours of opera-
tion to better utilize man-
power and improve customer
response.
The new hours in effect
Monday will be 7 a.m.-5 p.m.,
Monday-Friday. This includes
the ID card lab. Saturday
hours remain the same. The
department will be closed on
Sunday and holidays.

children? Who is anxious
for the school year to start?
You? The Kids? Both?
Hold on, there is one more
thing that has to be done....
school/sports physical.
It's not too late; Branch
Health Clinic Mayport has
appointments waiting and
available for you to get your

nizations and physical.
These appointments are
going fast, so don't wait to
call Central Appointments at

the appointment and then,
only then, will the summer
be complete!
School physical are
typically required by most
schools before entry into pre-
school or kindergarten or if
the child is starting in a new
school system.
Most schools and club
sports teams like Pop Warner
require a pre-participation
sports physical for students
to take part in team try-outs
or other physical education
programs.
This ensures the child is
medically fit to play a sport.
Parents should bring any
required school and sports
physical forms along with
their child's personal shot
record to the appointment.
Children should dress in
shorts, short-sleeved, loose
fitting T-shirts, and girls
should wear a sports bra.

Commodore Glenn
Zeiders, Commander
Destroyer Squadron 14 / FFG
CLASSRON and Capt. Peter
Schupp, Commander Southeast
Regional Maintenance Center
(SERMC) ceremonially trans-
ferred ownership of a historical
FFG 7 Class Frigate model on
Aug. 8.
The model, displayed on
SERMC's quarterdeck, will be
relocated to the CDS 14/ FFG
CLASSRON building and
will be displayed alongside a
historical model of the USS
Constitution, one of the U.S.
Navy's original six frigates.
As one of the eight
CLASSRONs within the
Surface Warfare Enterprise
(SWE), FFGRON specifically
works to address issues which
impact the Navy's ability to
man, train and equip the FFG-
7 Class. FFGRON was estab-
lished to increase accountability
and improve overall operation-
al readiness with a mission of
producing "warships ready for
tasking."
The transfer of the FFG 7
Class model symbolizes the
vital and long-standing Mayport
waterfront partnership between
SERMC and FFG CLASSRON

and will be a key display cen- hand sharing many FFG project firepump mechanical seal, rud-
terpiece at FFG CLASSRON ties and interests. SERMC is der inspection and repair sched-
headquarters. The transfer of the first point of entry for data uling, LM2500 corrosion issues,
the model befits the relation- calls and technical expertise for Electrical Plant Control System
ship between these organiza- the FFG CLASSRON. SERMC Obsolescence, High and Low
tions. The two Commands are was an integral part of several Pressure Air Compressors, hull
not only literally close in loca- FFGRON projects and "deep thinning/breaches, and Halon
tion, but also work hand in dives" including a study of fittings to name a few.


These joint projects fulfill a
key mission objective of FFG
CLASSRON by improving the
longevity of the FFG fleet, a
high Navy interest item due
to the cost and time involved
with building new ships.
Additionally, the combined
efforts of the two organizations
provide numerous solutions to
the SWE for the improvement
of the FFG fleet. SERMC is
recognized fleet wide as the pre-
mier maintenance provider to
ships and particularly to FFGs.
FFG CLASSRON and SERMC
work together to consistently
provide "the finest service to
the finest fleet."
The FFG 7 model will find
its new home displayed along-
side the historical model of the
USS Constitution. As the FFG
CLASSRON works to improve
readiness, extend life span and
expand the role of the FFG's,
it also celebrates the heritage
of the FFG Class as the orig-
inal founder of the US Navy.
The two ship models represent
the past and present of the US
Navy, while SERMC and FFG
CLASSRON steadily work
to prepare the FFG's for the
future.

CO Column


We have almost closed out
another week here on the Naval
Station, and many changes have
taken place and several distin-
guished visitors had a chance
to visit and see first hand the
pride and professionalism that
all of you bring to the table each
day. Last week we welcomed
the HMS Ark Royal for a three
day visit, and they enjoyed the
great base services and some
excellent liberty downtown.
This was the last stop before
the carrier headed back to the
UK. Mayport continues to be
a choice port call and that is
entirely due to our team's repu-
tation for providing the "finest
service to the finest fleet."
The start of the new school
year is coming up fast and now


Capt. Aaron Bowman
is the time to set up your kids'
school/sports physical. Branch
Health Clinic Mayport has
appointments waiting and avail-
able for you to get your children
the required immunizations and


physical. These appointments
are going fast, so call central
appointments at k(""4) 542-4677
to schedule your appointment.
School physical are typically
required by most schools before
entry into pre-school or kinder-
garten or if the child is starting
in a new school system. Most
schools and club sports teams
like Pop Warner require a pre-
participation sports physical for
students to take part in team try-
outs or other physical education
programs. Parents should bring
any required school and sports
physical forms along with their
child's personal shot record to
the appointment.
Last week I had a chance to
help celebrate the grand open-
ing of the


Ribault Bay Community
Center and let me tell you, what
a class act. The newly reno-
vated center has its own fitness
center, children's room, adult
lounge with flat screen televi-
sion and a game room full of
great video gaming, billiards,
ping pong and a friendly staff
that will see to it that you feel
right at home. Well done to
everyone for an amazing trans-
formation.
On Aug. 14, you have a
chance to give the gift of life
by donating blood during the
Mayport Blood Drive in build-
ing one with the Armed Services
Blood Program (ASBP). The
drive begins at 8 a.m. and ends
at 4 p.m. All blood collected by
ASBP will go directly overseas


and support our fighting forces.
Congratulations to our Naval
Station Chief Selectees NCC
(sel) Debra Grindstaff, CSC
(sel) Scott Wallace and ABFC
(sel) Brian Faulkinbury.
You have made a key step in
your career and you all deserve
a well done.
Your mentorship as Chief will
shape many careers to come.
Don't take this responsibility
lightly, your Sailors depend on
you to keep them on the right
path.
I want to pass on a discourag-
ing observation happening right
at our front gate the number
of impaired drivers showing
up in vehicles. At least half of
them have absolutely no affili-
ation with the Naval Station.


Fortunately our security force
is well trained in recognizing
and testing for sobriety and
we have a close relationship
with JSO to transfer offenders.
Unfortunately what it tells me is
that the number of people driv-
ing impaired is enormous. For
all of our military personnel on
base, please remember and use
our taxi program. For everyone
driving a vehicle, watch out for
and report drunk drivers. Keep
up the great work and don't for-
get that if you are not enjoy-
ing your time here at the best
base in the Navy, I want to hear
about it. Your concerns are my
concerns. Utilize the CO's sug-
gestion at the base galley, or

H omefront in Focus


By Beth Wilson
Military Spouse Contributor
We interrupt this series on
new spouse support for a news
bulletin Earthquakes, torna-
dos, flooding, heat-waves and
wild fires.
I experienced the recent earth-
quake in Los Angeles. It started
as a low rumble then everything
started to shake. This was my
first earthquake and, may I say,
there is something inherently
WRONG with the earth moving
beneath your feet!
I'm from the mid-Atlantic
region of the country. I can
sail through a winter blizzard,
hurricanes and the occasional
tornado but an earthquake?
Not so much. Thankfully for
this earthquake-wimp, it was a
minor tremor but I still want
orders to the east coast...NOW!
[giggle]
So, why am I talking about


it? Texas just experienced hur-
ricane Dolly, Eduardo is bear-
ing down. We are only at the
beginning of hurricane season;
over 100 fires are burning in
California and the Midwest has
experienced flooding and torna-
does over the past weeks. Even
New Jersey and Chicago had
tornados or tornado warning
this week. Are you ready to face
what may come your way?
I once served as ombuds-
man with an experienced Navy
spouse, Teri Fisher. In her years
as a Navy spouse Teri encoun-
tered it 'all'. She chuckled as
she told me about the earth-
quake in California, Hurricane
in Florida, wild fires and much
more. Her advice, "It's not 'if'
something will happen; it is
"WHEN! So be informed and
prepared."
So are you prepared? May I
encourage you as part of your


'back to school' preparations
that you also take the time to
get ready for that possible emer-
gency. I am not going to go into
what specific preparations to
make, rather let me refer you
to the many resources to assist
you in the development of you
emergency kit and emergency
plan; www.redcross.org and
www.fema.gov/areyouready.
In the wake of Hurricane
Rita and Katrina the Navy took
seriously the need to develop
a 'prepared fleet'. Operation
Prepare is the result of the
effort to develop a strategy and
resource for Sailors and their
families to be prepared for
emergencies. Check out https://
www.cfac.navy.mil/cnic_hq_
site/OpPrepare/index.htm
(couldn't we have a simple web
address like operationprepare.
org or operationprepare.mil).
This site has information and


resources to help you develop
an emergency kit and an emer-
gency plan for both CONUS
and OCONUS regions.
Another website, not well
by Sailors and their Families
is NFAAS or Navy Family
Accountability and Assessment
System (www.navyfam-
ily.navy.mil). This site/system
was developed with a twofold
mission in mind; to provide a
method for Navy leadership to
know where their personnel and
families are in the event of a
disaster and to assist the Navy
in responding to the needs of
those sailors and family mem-
bers during that disaster.
Please take time to visit this
website; it is a very important
step in your emergency prepara-
tions. Click on the 'update your
information'. On this screen
you will establish a password
and complete a profile for you


and each member of your fam-
ily or household, including the
ability to identify special needs
and EFM family members. It is
recommended that you review
and update the information at
least twice each year.
In your preparations, please
add the toll free number
for the NFAAS Emergency
Coordination Center to your
cell phone (877-414-5358). In
the event of a natural or nation-
al disaster call this number for
assistance, support and to 'mus-
ter', insuring that your com-
mand knows your status.
If you have internet access
during an emergency you can
logon to provide your location
and status. Again, this step is to
assist command leadership in
knowing your status and bring-
ing you the right assistance.
Take time to peruse this site
as you will find information on


disaster/emergency prepared-
ness, recovering from disaster,
helpful links and much more
information.
As my grandmother used to
say, "An ounce of prevention
is worth five pounds of cure,"
similarly, it is worth the effort
to be prepared to face what life
(and California) may through
at you. Take the time this week,
include the kids in the process,
and develop your emergency
kit and plan. You'll never regret
being prepared!

Letter to


As most of you are already aware from media
coverage in the Beaches Leader and on First
Coast News, the Greater Jacksonville Area USO
is struggling to stay afloat financially. We have
received many calls from our active duty service
members and family members asking how they
can help. You can help by writing letters explain-
ing what the USO means to you or describe a sit-
uation where the USO truly enhanced the quality
of your life. These letters and stories will be used
to assist us in educating our community on the
impact we have in the lives of our local commu-
nity. Here's an example of how the USO came to
the rescue of a family.
When people ask me what the USO does, I
usually just recite our mission statement. But
those words don't adequately describe what we
do... it changes from one day to the next... from
one Soldier to the next Sailor, from one Airman
to the next Guardsman.
In 1991, a young Lieutenant and her 3 toddlers
had to be evacuated from the Philippines follow-
ing the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo.
Their wild journey encompassed two days and
nights on a U.S. Naval vessel, one hot, insect-

infested night on cots in an open air tent on the
island of Cebu, and another night in a stranger's
home on Guam. They finally arrived in the states,
but they were still not at home.
Out of food, out of diapers, and completely
exhausted from the experience they were left to
their own devices to figure out where to go next
and how to get there. And they were alone.
Alone... until they walked into the welcom-
ing arms of the volunteers at the USO Airport
Center in Seattle. The USO cared for their every
need, and sent them on their way, re-supplied,
refreshed, and grateful for a place to find refuge
following a long and harrowing journey. That
young lieutenant, toddlers in her arms, was me.
That experience inspired my effort to establish
the Welcome Center at Jacksonville International
Airport 4 1/2 years ago and is my inspiration to
make your USO the best it can be.
Now, tell me your story. There are thousands
of them out year, and we need them! Send them

"We strongly encourage all
qualified Alaskans to apply for
the scholarships," said Julie
Beaver, director of development
programs for the Navy League.
"Last year, some of the scholar-
ships weren't awarded due to a
lack of applicants."
The scholarships are made
possible by funds raised as a
war bond during World War II
to honor the Sailors of the USS
Juneau (CL 52). Following the
war, the governor of the terri-
tory of Alaska and the Secretary
of the Navy agreed that the
bond monies would remain on
deposit until an appropriate use
for the fund could be found. In
1986, the Navy established the
Alaska Sea Services Scholarship
Fund.
The application deadline
is March 1, 2009 for the fis-
cal year 2009 selection board,
which convenes in April 2009.


High School. There is also a
Rite of Christian Initiation for
Adults class for inquirers. All

program by contacting the
Director of Religious Education,
Alline Zwarycz, either before or

Farragut Sets Sail From


Guantanamo


By CWO3
Luigi G. Federici
USSFarragut .. Test Officer
Guantanamo Bay Cuba- The
crew of USS Farragut (DDG
99) set sail from the Naval Base
at Guantanamo Bay Cuba, Aug.
4, in support of Partnership of
the Americas (POA) 2008, an
annual operation sponsored
by US Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM) in the
SOUTHCOM Area of Focus.
This deployment includes
multi-national exercises,
Theater Security Cooperation
(TSC) events, and Counter
Narcoterrorism (CNT) mis-
sions in South America, Central
America, and the Caribbean.
Cmdr. Scott Dugan, Farragut's
Commanding Officer, said that
he and the crew are looking for-
ward to the second half of their
deployment, which began April
7, and has already taken them
around South America.
"Our maintenance availabil-
ity in Mayport Florida followed
by the training we completed
in Guantanamo Bay was time
well spent in preparing the ship
for this second phase of our
deployment. Our mission in
this phase of the deployment is
to build relationships with our
partners in South America and
the Caribbean for greater mari-
time security in the region by
our involvement in various mul-
tinational exercises."
During the ship's entry into
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as the
ship passed the windward side
of the island, it slowed to three
knots as Cmdr. Deidre McClay,
Farragut's commissioning com-
manding officer, was promoted
to the rank of Captain. As her
promotion ceremony was being
held in Guantanamo Bay, she
was excited that FARRAGUT
was able to be the backdrop of
her promotion ceremony.
"It is a thrill to be back
onboard Farragut. It is clear
from the reports that I have
received that the crew and the
ship lives up to its motto of
"Prepared for Battle". I am sure
the ship's maiden deployment
will continue to be marked with
acts of pride and distinction,"
said Captain McClay.
Farragut will visit Cartegena,
Columbia next and participate
in PANAMAX 2008, a multi-
national joint exercise dedicated
to the defense of the Panama
Canal.
After PANAMAX, Farragut
will participate in several TSC
and CNT missions throughout

HSL-46 From Page 1
HSL-40, then to HSL-48 for his
first sea tour, and the OPNAV
Staff as CNO Briefer and Action
Officer. He was assigned to the
CNO's Global War on Terrorism
Planning Cell to develop
plans for Operation Enduring
Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
Following his Pentagon tour, he
was the Aviation Maintenance
Officer in HSL-40. After his
instructor tour at HSL-40, he
went to HSL-44 as Officer in
Charge of Detachment NINE
and as Aviation Maintenance
Officer. Most recently he was
assigned to the Navy Personnel
Command where he served as
Placement Officer and Aviation
Assistant Captain Detailer.
HSL-46 welcomes all past
and present Grandmasters, as
well as all family and friends, to
attend the Change of Command
in the HSL-46 hangar on August
14, 2008.

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


FFSC
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.

'Predict-to-Fill' IA Billeting Increasingly Successful


By MCSN(SW) Tyler H.
Jones
Fleet Public ; Center Atlantic
At a National Naval Officers
Association conference July 25
in Portsmouth, Va., the Deputy
Chief of Naval Personnel
announced steady progress in
improving the way Sailors are
detailed to fill individual aug-
mentee (IA) billets.
Today, about two percent
of the Navy's active com-
ponent and eight percent of
its Reservists are serving an
IA in Iraq, Afghanistan, and
other global war on terrorism
(GWOT) areas of responsibility.


A total of approximately 70,000
Sailors have served as "boots on
the ground" since the GWOT IA
process began.
New changes were imple-
mented in June 2007 when
the Office of Naval Personnel
released NAVADMIN 147/07,
which integrated reoccurring
"GWOT support assignments"
(GSA) as part of the normal
detailing process for Sailors
within their regular projected
rotation dates (PRD). Thirteen
months after the NAVADMIN's
release, the number of Sailors
slated to fill GSAs, versus so-
called legacy "rip-to-fill" billets,


is up to more than 60 percent.
Detailing Sailors via GSAs to
fill IA missions allows for the
Navy to better support and plan
for Sailors and their families, as
well as parent commands, dur-
ing a Sailor's PRD and IA pro-
cess, noted Rear Adm. Sonny
Masso.
"We are absolutely commit-
ted to providing our Sailors and
their families with the support
they need. Especially when
they are serving on the front
lines in support of this global
war on terror."
However, Masso stressed that
because of the fluid nature of


the GWOT, not all billets can
be planned-to-fill through GSA.
Currently, about 75 percent of
IA billets are relatively stable
and meet the requirements to be
loaded into the Navy's person-
nel distribution system.
"Even so, sometimes mem-
bers expected to fill IA billets
within their normal detailing
window are unable to fill the
billet because of problems with
medical or security clearance,
non-judicial punishment, and
other factors. This is when
detailers are often forced to pull
Sailors mid-tour to fill GWOT
positions around the world."


Making this point, Masso
reiterated the importance of
mission readiness and said
Sailors who serve in GWOT-
critical ratings should take that
into consideration when mak-
ing life-changing decisions. He
also encouraged commanding
and executive officers to take
an active role in the readiness of
the IA mission.
"Eighty percent of Sailors
who fill IA billets are volun-
teers, and many choose to
accept the challenge because
of the opportunities it affords
their careers and futures in the
Navy. These Sailors can enjoy a


number of incentives, including
extra points toward advance-
ment, flexible exam schedules
and future detailing privileges,
such as choice of coast."
In fiscal year 2008, the selec-
tion rate for chief petty officers
was 33 percent for IA Sailors,
compared to the fleet-wide aver-
age of 21 percent.
Above all, Masso stressed the
pride many Sailors feel when
they actively and visibly sup-
port the Navy's role in fighting
global terrorism.

Safety
By HMC(SW/SCW/FMF)
James A. Muesing
USS Gettysburg Safety Department
LCPO
On board USS Gettysburg
Sailor's safety extends beyond
the ship's hull, decks, safety
lines and brow. The welfare of
the crew is a concern for both
on and off Sailors. To foster an
environment of where "safety
comes first" the command has
created the Safety Department
headed by the Safety Officer
who administers a chain of
command which includes 44
divisional Safety Petty Officers.
The Safety Department is a crit-
ical line of defense in following
the Commanding Officer's phi-
losophy that safety is a tenant of
success and requires the dedi-
cated efforts of all hands both
on and off duty.
To help foster a climate of
safety, the Safety Department
has developed several initia-
tives to ensure the ship's work
environment and the Sailor's
engrained thought process,
always considers ways to miti-
gate the risks during every evo-


Is Top
lution or activity the crew par-
ticipates in.
One of the programs imple-
mented onboard Gettysburg
empowers Sailors to take an
active role in mishap mitigation.
Divisional Safety Petty Officers
are required to walk their spac-
es daily and file Safety Hazard
Reports through the Safety
Department to the Commanding
Officer. Corrective actions to
these discrepancies are made
immediately, and tracked by the
Safety Department and depart-
ment responsible for the space
until the deficiencies are cor-
rected. This process encourages
Sailors to take ownership of
their spaces and actively assess
the safety and material condi-
tion of the ship at all times.
The Safety Department's goal
of maintaining safe Sailors also
extends outside the lifelines of
the ship to off duty activities.
Through actively encouraging
positive activities off the ship
such as MWR events and rein-
forcing responsibly drinking
habits, the Safety Department's


Priority
message travels home with
Sailors. The department also
takes an active role in training
sailors about first aid and nec-
essary precautions each Sailor
should take on and off the ship
such as proper hydration in the
Florida heat.
By empowering Sailors with
the tools to keep themselves
and the ship safe, Gettysburg
leaders have ensured the ship
is always ready to carry out its
mission. As a result of the ini-
tiatives now in place, the num-
ber of safety-related incidents
has decreased significantly. In
addition, the command Safety
Department has been able to
address safety issues and rein-
force the idea that safety is not
just an "on duty" concern. With
the current processes in place,
Gettysburg is able to maintain a
documented historical record of
safety issues and discrepancies
that will help to identify and
reduce safety discrepancies in
the future.

Last Session of Swim Lessons With Mayport MWR


By MC2 Daniel Gay
FLTPACEN SE
For all the parents out there
who didn't get in on it this sum-
mer, you might want to start
thinking ahead to next sum-
mer's offering of swim lessons
at the base pool. The last ses-
sion of swim lessons is under-
way for kids to learn the ways
of the water this summer but
next summer will be here before


you know it.
During the summers Naval
Station Mayport's base pool
offers swimming lessons for
kids from beginner to advanced.
"I really enjoyed having my
daughter take the lessons this
summer, she went from being
very cautious of the water at the
beginning to now being very
comfortable and even being able
to swim a short distance with-


out help," said Amanda Dunn,
who's daughter Gabriella, 5,
took two sessions this summer.
If your child is inexperienced
with the water you can start
them out at level one which is
all about introducing new swim-
mers to the water.
"I started out with Liam in
level two but he really didn't
feel comfortable with the water
so we moved down to level one,


and that was just perfect for
him," said Bianka Rodriguez.
No%\ he is back in level two
and doing really well."
The classes are all run by cer-
tified life guards and the parents
couldn't say enough about how
skilled they are.
"I really have to hand it to the
instructors; they are just great
with the kids and they have the
patience required to really get


the kids to trust them," said
Dunn
"I feel learning to swim is
such an important skill and the
life guards are just great at get-
ting the kids to listen and learn,"
said Rodriguez
The base pool is located
behind the bowling alley and
very close to a lot of the major
commands.
"It's just really convenient to


have the lessons here on base, I
live on base so it is so easy for
me to get here and make sure
Liam learns as much as he can,"
said Rodriguez
The base pool offers swim-
ming classes all throughout the
summers, and you can contact
MWR for more information.

Former Olympian, Lincoln Sailor Shares Dreams


By MC3 Justin Blake
USS Abraham Lincoln Public
Affairs
On the eve of the 29th
Summer Olympic Games in
Beijing, USS Abraham Lincoln
(CVN 72) learned one of her
Sailors, a native of Ghana and
now a naturalized U.S. citizen,
competed in the 1996 games
in Atlanta and the 2000 games
in Sydney, which opened up a
whole new world for the one-
time Olympic sprinter.
In August 1996 Albert
Agyemang competed for the
Ghana National Team in the
Atlanta Summer Olympics in
the 200-meter and 400-meter
relays. Jump ahead 12 years
and Agyemang is a personnel
specialist 3rd class assigned to
the administrative department
aboard USS Abraham Lincoln.
Agyemang works in person-
nel division's customer service
area, updating records for all of


Lincoln's crew. As a personnel
customer service representative,
Agyemang uses the same deter-
mination and professionalism
that got him to the Olympics.
At the age of 16 in 1993,
Agyemang, a native of Accra,
Ghana, began running com-
petitively, becoming one of the
West African country's quickest
and most determined runners.
During the 1995 African Games,
the Ghana National team beat
out the superior Nigerian team
in a thrilling upset.
"We go [to the African
Games] and beat Nigeria, a real-
ly good team and the Olympic
Committee was so impressed
that they moved us to Germany
to begin training full-time,"
Agyemang said.
Qualifying to compete for his
home country came by chance.
Agyemang's usual race was
the 100-meter, but after a poor
showing, he didn't qualify. On


a whim, Agyemang tried the
200-meter race and made the
Olympic qualification time.
"After failing at the 100-
meter, I took a chance at the
200-meter and punched my
ticket for Atlanta," Agyemang
said.
Agyemang made it to the
quarterfinals in Atlanta finish-
ing fifth in the 200-meter race.
His relay team made it to the
finals in a match against the
United States in the 400-meter
relay. The Ghana team was dis-
qualified on a misinterpretation
of the rules, Agyemang said.
"We were so excited to make
it that far and to be going up
against the Americans was
unbelievable," Agyemang said.
"It's a shame that we weren't
able to compete on a technical-
ity."
Agyemang, whose fastest
200-meter run time was 20.64
seconds, was also invited to


the 2000 Olympics in Sydney,
Australia, only making it
through preliminary.
In Agyemang's home coun-
try of Ghana, sports are not as
popular as in the United States.
Citizens there believe a man is
wasting his time on sports when
he could be furthering his edu-
cation, Agyemang explained.
With that going against him,
Agyemang's father pushed him
to attain a scholarship in the
United States.
"My father read a lot about
the United States and it being
the land of opportunity,"
Agyemang said. "He made me
promise to pursue the highest
education possible."
With little chance of earn-
ing a scholarship in Ghana,
Agyemang wanted to further his
education so he took his father's
advice.
"My father said, 'Use your
legs,'" Agyemang said. He soon


earned an athletic scholarship
to Southern University in New
Orleans, and later transferred to
Middle Tennessee State, where
he earned a bachelor's degree in
economics.
After completing four years
of school, Agyemang set out to
make a life for himself outside
of running. He soon married
Stella Benson and took a sales
job at a retail department store.
"I had finished my bachelor's
and was working a standard
sales job, making a good liv-
ing," Agyemang said.
Agyemang's decent living
was soon over. His company
needed to save money, so his
hours were cut along with his
medical coverage. Now support-
ing a family, Agyemang needed
to make a choice.
"I did research on the U.S.
military and realized all the ben-
efits were just what I needed,"
said Agyemang.
The steady income, education,
leadership opportunities, medi-
cal benefits and travel made the
military an easy choice.
"Having that peace of mind
with a paycheck always being
there, I wouldn't have more


anxious moments," Agyemang
said.
Agyemang joined the Navy in
December of 2004 and became
a U.S. citizen in February 2005.
After completing Personnelman
"A" school in Meridan, Miss.,
Agyemang transferred to Navy
Operational Support Center in
Avoca, Pa. and later transferred
to Lincoln during this deploy-
ment.
"The military has given me
a lot of paths to choose from,
first and foremost education,"
Agyemang said. "I plan on
using the education benefits to
fulfill the promise I made to my
father."
Lincoln is deployed to the
U.S. 5th Fleet area of opera-
tions to support Operations Iraqi
Freedom and Enduring Freedom
as well as Maritime Security
Operations (MSO). Operations
in the 5th Fleet area of responsi-
bility are focused on reassuring
regional partners of the United
States commitment to security,
which promotes stability and
global prosperity.

Gillingham Relieves Bono As NH Jax CO


By Loren Barnes
NHJaxPublic. "
Capt. Bruce Gillingham
assumes command of Naval
Hospital Jacksonville today,
Aug. 14, relieving Capt. Raquel
Bono in a 10 a.m. ceremo-
ny at NAS Jacksonville's All
Saints Chapel. Guest speaker
at the ceremony will be Deputy
Surgeon General of the Navy
Rear Adm. Thomas R. Cullison.
Gillingham reports aboard
from Naval Medical Center
Portsmouth, Va., where he
was the Deputy Commander.
There, he was responsible for
the coordinated delivery of pri-
mary and tertiary healthcare to
a patient population in excess of
400,000.
He takes command of Naval
Hospital Jacksonville as Bono
completes three challenging
years of change and progress
at the facility. She is set to
assume duties at the TRICARE
Management Activity in
Washington, DC. where, she
said, she looks forward to being
able to help shape military
healthcare for all branches of
the armed forces.
Bono said she realized from
her first days here, the awe-
some responsibility that lay
ahead. After meeting her staff
and members of the local com-
munity, she said she knew
she wouldn't be facing those
responsibilities alone.
Her first task was to establish
goals for the hospital focusing
on readiness, enhancing patient
care and customer service. Her
mantra became, "Treat every
patient, exactly as you would
like to be treated, every time."


Capt. Raquel Bono
Under her leadership, the hos-
pital and its seven branch health
clinics have met the challenge
of high-tempo operational
deployments in support of the
Global War On Terrorism while
continuing caring for patients
at home. At any one time 10-
20 percent of Naval Hospital
Jacksonville's personnel were
on deployment during her tour
here and that pace continues.
They serve in such locations
as Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait,
Djibouti and Joint Task Force
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba as well
as Fleet support assignments.
Closer to home, Bono
deployed a team to lend aid to
the victims of Hurricane Katrina
in 2005 and a group of volun-
teers served aboard the hospital
ship USNS
Comfort to lend aid to our
neighbors in Latin America.
Deployment healthcare
isn't just about providing
care abroad. The hospital also
screens deploying troops for
health issues before deployment
and evaluating them after their


CIO=






Capt. Bruce Gillingham
return for any if necessary pro-
viding treatment. Meanwhile,
excellent care is continually
available for the warfighter's
families back home. "Concern
for the health of a deployed
member's spouse and children
shouldn't be an additional worry
for them on the battlefield,"
Bono said.
Despite some adverse media
coverage in recent years, Bono
said, she has absolute con-
fidence in the quality of care
the hospital staff delivers. "I
have always been amazed by
the creativity, courage, com-
passion and commitment of my
entire staff. I am very proud of
this remarkable team," she said.
"Today, with lessons learned,
I feel confident that our qual-
ity of care has never been bet-
ter... Together, we have over
the last three years, made Naval
Hospital Jacksonville a better
healthcare facility."
Looking toward to what
Gillingham has before him, she
said there will continue to be
challenges but he will also be


on hand to realize some very
positive progress. "Myriad
patient care and customer ser-
vice enhancements coupled with
major facility improvements
underway, including a $35.8
million surgical suite addition,
promise a bright new era for
Naval Hospital Jacksonville and
our patients," she said.
Bono said, "I know the
Gillinghams will learn what spe-
cial people populate this com-
mand and our Florida-Georgia
community," and wished the
Captain and his family well on
their tour here.
To the friends she leaves
behind she said, "Wherever we
go you will always hold a spe-
cial place in my heart."
Bono will report to the
TRICARE Management
Activity in Washington, DC.
where she says she looks for-
ward to being able to play a part
in shaping military medicine
DoD-wide.
Gillingham comes prepared to
lead Naval Hospital Jacksonville
into a new era. During his ten-
ure at Portsmouth, he intro-
duced the Team STEPPS Patient
Safety program and established
new benchmarks for deploy-
ment readiness and evidence-
based quality of care.
A graduate of the University
of California, San Diego, he
holds a Bachelor of Arts degree
in cultural anthropology. In
1982, he was commissioned as
an Ensign in the Naval Reserve
upon entry to the Uniformed
Services University of the
Health Sciences in Bethesda,
Md. He graduated in 1986 with
a Doctor of Medicine degree


and induction into Alpha Omega
Alpha, the medical honorary
society.
He served at Naval Medical
Center San Diego as a surgi-
cal intern. He went on to
qualify as an Undersea and
Diving Medical Officer and
served a tour at Naval Hospital
Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico
with additional duty to Naval
Special Warfare Unit 4.
He completed his orthopaedic
residency at NMC San Diego
in 1994 and subspecialty train-
ing as a pediatric orthopaedic
surgeon at the Hospital for Sick
Children in Toronto in August,
1995. Other tours include duty
as the Director of Pediatric
Orthopaedic and Scoliosis
Surgery and subsequently as the
associate orthopaedic residency
program director at NMC San
Diego. He is also an Assistant
Professor of Surgery at the
Uniformed Services University
of the Health Sciences.
He took his skills to the USNS
Mercy (TAH-19) for three years
during Operation Iraqi Freedom
- 1, finally being selected as
the Director, Surgical Services
for the ship. During that tour,
he updated and expanded the
surgical equipment for the plat-
form ensuring optimum plat-
form readiness.
He went on to serve as
Director for Surgical Services at
NMC San Diego with responsi-
bility for more than 1,000 per-
sonnel. His directorate received
the first 2004 DOD Patient
Safety Award for establishing
the MEDTEAMS program.
While at NMC San Diego, he
deployed to Taqaddum, Iraq


during Operation Iraqi Freedom
as the Chief of Professional
Services (Forward) for the 1st
Force Service Support Group
and Officer in Charge of the
Surgical Shock Trauma Platoon
(SSTP) from July 2004 to
March 2005.
Upon his return, he was
instrumental in establishing
the Comprehensive Combat
Casualty Care Center (C-5) in
order to optimize the coordina-
tion of care for those wounded
in the Global War on Terrorism.
Gillingham has published
more than 30 scientific articles
and book chapters and is a fre-
quent presenter at national pro-
fessional orthopaedic meetings.
A Diplomat of the American
Board of Orthopaedic Surgery,
he is a Fellow of the American
Academy of Orthopaedic
Surgeons and a member of the
Pediatric Orthopaedic Society
of North America, the Scoliosis
Research Society, American
College of Physician Executives,
Society of Military Orthopaedic
Surgeons and Association of
Military Surgeons of the United
States.
His military decorations
include the Legion of Merit,
the Meritorious Service
Medal, Navy Commendation
Medal (two awards), the Navy
Achievement Medal, the Iraq
Campaign Medal with the
Eagle Globe and Anchor device
and the Humanitarian Service
Medal.


Breastfeeding Benefits


Moms, Provides Better


Start For Babies


By Marsha Childs and
HM3 Jessica Anderson
NHJaxPublic, *"
The first week in August
is designated as World
Breastfeeding Week, but Naval
Hospital Jacksonville (NH Jax)
promotes breastfeeding every
day of the year. Breastfeeding
provides benefits for new moth-
ers and gets babies off to a bet-
ter start.
NH Jax Lactation Consultant
Rachel Nieves and staff cel-
ebrated the week with a cake
cutting ceremony on August 7.
This year's celebration focused
on the mother. "We are honor-
ing the moms this year," said
Nieves. It is the mother who
forms that first crucial bond
with the newborn. This bond
provides the baby added com-
fort. "You see breastfed babies
smiling before other babies
because of the added security it
provides," she said.
According to the U.S.
Department of Health and
Human Services (HHS), breast
milk is the best and most com-
plete form of food for babies.
Breast milk contains essential
fat, sugar and protein, which is
nature's way of ensuring early
survival. The milk also con-
tains antibodies to provide early
protection for the newborn from
bacteria and viruses.


In addition, breastfed babies
score slightly higher on IQ
tests, especially those born pre-
maturely. Recent studies show
infants who were not breastfed
for at least six months are more
likely to develop a broad range
of infections including ear
infections, diarrhea and respira-
tory illnesses.
The unique first milk a
mother produces immediately
following delivery is called
colostrum. Colostrum not only
contains the precious antibod-
ies infants need but also the
protein-rich nutrition the infant
requires. Maternal Infant Unit
Lactation Counselor Gwendy
Baldwin said, "Processed colos-
trum is sometimes given to frail
geriatric patients, which helps
them survive through various
illnesses."
Many doctors believe formu-
la-fed babies are more likely to
be obese than breastfed babies.
Renowned Pediatrician and
author Paul Fleiss suggests most
baby formulas contain on aver-
age about 26 ingredients with
the first usually being sugar.
Breast milk contains the right
amount of fat to meet the grow-
ing infant's needs. Formula is
not customized to address nutri-
tional requirements at specific
stages of development.
Mothers who nurse reap many


benefits such as earlier weight
loss after delivery. The body
burns about 25 percent more
calories each day to produce
milk. Nursing mothers don't
have the additional expense of
buying expensive formulas, bot-
tles and supplies.
Breastfeeding also lowers the
risk of breast and ovarian can-
cers and may even reduce the
risk of hip fractures and osteo-
porosis after menopause.
NH Jax offers a wide range
of breastfeeding services and
support for all newly deliv-
ered moms. New mom Aurora
Ruelas, who delivered Jacob,
a healthy boy on Aug. 4 said,
"The lactation classes helped
a lot. I felt more open to it
because I knew a lot more about
it."
For more information on
breastfeeding please contact the
hospital's Lactation Clinic at

NPC Educating Fleet How To Wear New Uniform


From Navy Personnel Command Public

Sailors transitioning to the
new service uniform (SU) can
get smart about its proper wear
at Navy Personnel Command's
(NPC) homepage, www.npc.
navy.mil. NPC added a training
video to its homepage Aug. 4 to
help educate the fleet about the
Navy's newest uniform.
"We are in the initial process
of the new E1-E6 service uni-
form rollout. These videos are
designed to ensure Sailors and
leadership know the standards
associated with the service uni-
form. This is great for train-
ing and getting Sailors ready
to wear the new uniform," said
Force Master Chief (AW/SW)
Daryl Charles, assigned to
NPC.
Additional guidance on wear
of the service uniform can be
found in NAVADMIN 190/08,
also available on the NPC web-
site.


Service uniform sales began
July 31 at Navy Exchange uni-
form shops in Great Lakes and
California. Sailors stationed in
these regions may also order the
new service uniform by call-
ing the toll-free uniform support
line at 1-800-368-4088.
"I like it a lot. People tell
me it looks sharp. It feels
cooler than the whites," said
Operations Specialist 2nd Class
(SW) Heather Smith, assigned
to Naval Base Coronado.
Smith purchased her service
uniform the first day it was
available and guessed on the
placement of her ribbons and
name tag based on the place-
ment from her summer whites.
"My master chief and I
reviewed the video and my
guess was pretty close. I just
needed to adjust my ribbons a
little bit," said Smith, who has
been getting a lot of comments
about her new threads.
Sailors have up to 24 months


to purchase the new uniform,
depending on their duty station
location. The mandatory wear
date for all E1-E6 personnel is
July 2010. Clothing replace-
ment allowances for fiscal years
2008 and 2009 were increased
to cover the purchasing of two
sets of new uniforms by July
2010.
The service uniform will be
available for purchase via Navy
Exchange uniform centers as
follows:
July 2008, Great Lakes and
California
Oct 2008, Northwest and
Hawaii
Jan 2009, Gulf region and
Millington, Tenn.
April 2009, Naval District
Washington
July 2009, Tidewater
Oct 2009, Southeast
Jan 2010, Northeast
April 2010, Europe/Japan/

Navy Evaluates Remote


Minehunting System


From A .. Warfare Center
Panama C, f Public. ;
The U.S. Navy completed
technical evaluation and train-
ing of the remote minehunt-
ing system (RMS) aboard
USS Bainbridge (DDG-96) in
Panama City, Fla. July 28.
The evaluation enables the
Navy to continue training on the
system, designed as part of the
mine warfare mission package
for the Littoral Combat Ship.
"This is all in preparation
for the operational evaluation
(OPEVAL) to be conducted in
the South Florida Test Facility
this September," said Naval
Surface Warfare Center Panama
City RMS Project Engineer
Keith Hartless.
Senior Chief Mineman Paul
King of Littoral Combat Ship
(LCS) Mine Countermeasure
(MCM) Detachment 1 praised
RMS as cutting-edge technol-
ogy during his pierside prepara-
tions.
"This is the future in the
making," said King. "I've been
working in mine warfare for at
least 15 years and this is some
of the most advanced equipment
I've seen."
Since mines are a significant
threat to today's battle groups,
destroyers have tradition-
ally been first to enter coastal
regions ahead of their battle
groups. According to Hartless,
the RMS will provide a recon-
naissance capability that far sur-
passes traditional methods of
mine hunting and will exponen-
tially increase the safety factor
for ship and crew.
"In the past, we did our recon-
naissance leading with our nose,
so to speak, and when our first
ship encountered a mine, that
became the 'heads-up' to call in
our dedicated MCM ships and
MH-53E minehunting helicop-
ter squadrons," said Hartless.
Hartless noted the RMS is a
system of systems that provides
a remote and semi-autonomous
capability to go into anticipated
operational areas and do recon-
naissance for mine threats prior
to any manned ship entering the

area.
"The RMS is actually com-
prised of five subsystems,"
said Hartless. "There is the
Remote Minehunting Vehicle
(RMV); the AN/AQS-20A (Q-
20) towed sensor for minehu-
nting detection and identifica-
tion; the launch and recovery
system; the data link system fi
half of which is on the RMV,
the other half positioned aboard
ship; and the software, called
the Remote Minehunting
Functional Segment (RMFS),
which resides within the combat
system aboard ship."
While pierside at Naval
Surface Warfare Center Panama
City Division, King described
how these systems worked
together to hunt, detect, and
locate mines.
"Inside the RMV, there is a
cable that can lower the Q-20
towed sonar body," said King.
"Or, the Q-20 can function
while hull mounted to the RMV
The Q-20 is usually streamed
out to hunt using its sensors, it
then transmits its signals back
to us, we see the images in real
time on consoles aboard ship,
and then we also record the data
so we can then perform post-
mission analysis."
According to Hartless, once
the RMS proves itself during
operational evaluation it is des-
tined to become a featured com-
ponent as part of the mine war-
fare (MIW) mission package
and the anti-submarine warfare
(ASW) package aboard one of
the Navy's newest platforms fi
the LCS.
"The MIW mission package
will be comprised of two RMSs
- each able to operate in tandem
and effectively doubling the
search area and rate," Hartless
said, adding that the ASW mis-
sion package will also ultimate-
ly receive two similar remote
vehicles.
"The ASW mission module
also receives two RMVs except
we're changing the nomencla-
ture to remote multi-mission
vehicles (RMMV) because it


will be carrying ASW sensors,"
Hartless said. "The idea is we
will have a common RMMV
where we will literally be able
to swap out sensors whether
for mine warfare or anti-sub-
marine warfare, whichever is
needed."

Five Fruits To Help You Lose Weight This Summer


By Maj. Karen E. Fauber
DeCA dietitian
The heat is on in more ways
than one as the dog days of
summer are here. To keep cool
and look good in those shorts
and swimming suits, try some
of the refreshing summer fruits
that are in abundance at your
commissary. Growing evi-
dence shows that eating fruit
for snacks and at meals can help
you lose weight while providing
many of the nutrients, includ-
ing antioxidants, that your body
needs.
Fresh fruit is low in calories
and high in water, which means
it helps fill you up without fill-
ing you out. Some fruits are
also high in fiber, another bonus


for those of us trying to win
the weight battle. Here are five
fruits you can find in your com-
missary to enjoy this summer
- all at savings of 30 percent or
more.
Grapes
Grapes contain vitamins
C and K, calcium, along with
more than 20 antioxidants found
in the red, purple and black
varieties. For a delicious treat,
try freezing grapes and eating
them with a little powdered
sugar sprinkled on for color.
Fifteen grapes have about 60
calories for those of us who are
counting.
Papayas
Look for papayas that have a
ripe, yellow skin that yields to a


little pressure. Along with being
an excellent source of vitamins
A and C, potassium and fiber,
papayas are high in antioxi-
dants. Eating papayas may help
prevent heart disease and colon
cancer. With an unripe papa-
ya, try ripening it at home in a
paper bag for a day or two. Add
chunks of papaya to salads and
salsa for a tropical treat.
Mangoes
Mangoes are high in vitamins
A, C and B6, along with potas-
sium. Rich in antioxidants, they
are the most popular fruit in the
world. With only 110 calories in
one mango, you can eat a whole
one for a snack without any
guilt. Try adding some mango
chunks to a salad, yogurt, cereal


or salsa for a change.
Watermelon
A true American treat, water-
melon is full of water, and only
45 calories in one cup. What
it does have is vitamins A, C
and B6, along with potassium
and the amino acid citrulline.
Eating watermelon helps the
heart and arteries work well
due to the amino acids found in
it, according to USDA studies.
Watermelon is higher in lyco-
pene, an antioxidant, than any
other fruit or vegetable, includ-
ing tomatoes. Try adding water-
melon to a salad or a salsa for a
refreshing treat.
Berries
Blueberries, strawberries,
blackberries and raspber-


ries are all high in vitamin C
which helps the immune sys-
tem. According to one major
study, berries have been found
to have the most antioxidants of
any fruit. Both blueberries and
strawberries have been found
to be good for the mind and the
memory. With only 80 calories
in a cup, try adding them to
cereal, yogurt, salad or salsa.
Choosing fresh, frozen or
canned fruit instead of high-cal-
orie foods can help with weight
loss. When choosing frozen
or canned fruits, choose those
packed in fruit juice or light
syrup to save even more calo-
ries. Try a new fruit today while
enjoying the variety available
this summer at your commis-


sary.
See you in the commissary
where with savings of 30 per-
cent or more, it's always worth
the trip!

fruits and other nutrition top-
ics, go to http://www.commis-
saries.com and visit Ask the
Dietitian where you can post
your questions on the DeCA
Dietitian Forum. Be sure to look

Go Fishing For Omega 3s At Mayport Commissary


By Maj. Karen E. Fauber
DeCA dietitian
If you find yourself need-
ing a lift, eating foods such as
fish or ground flaxseed high in
omega-3 fatty acids at lunch


By Maj. Karen E. Fauber
DeCA dietitian
Life in the barracks is not
all that bad; often you have a
refrigerator and a microwave in
your own room along with some
of the other comforts of home.
But now do you wish you had
paid more attention to how your
mom cooked her meals before
you left home? Well, it's not
too late to learn how to make
some simple dishes that can be
healthy and add a little variety
to your diet.
There are plenty of con-
venience, packaged and fresh
foods available in the commis-
sary at savings of 30 percent
or more that can help you do
just that. And, if you want some
help in dropping a few pounds
before that next weigh-in, visit
http://commissaries.com, go to
the Ask the Dietitian Web page
and post your questions on the
DeCA Dietitian Forum. This


can boost your mood all after-
noon. Omega-3s are essential
and you have to get them from
your diet because the body
doesn't make them.
Our mood regulator, the brain,


may be just the thing to help
you make the weight with a lit-
tle effort.
Keep these foods on hand,
and remember, if you think
they've been in the dorm refrig-
erator too long, follow this
advice: when it doubt throw it
out. Keeping food safe is impor-
tant to staying healthy.

polyunsaturated fatty acids that
make up the membranes sur-

These fatty acids play a key
role in the function of the neu-


*Instant brown rice
*High-fiber (5 grams per

*Whole grain, high-fiber (3
grams or more per serving)
bread
*Powdered garlic and dried-
onion flakes are great for add-
ing flavor to almost any food
*Fresh, canned and dried
fruit are good for quick, healthy
snacks
Cook it quick
Add a little garlic and onion
flakes to the noodles or rice in
a bowl, cook as directed on the
package. Add the frozen veg-
etables and chicken and heat for
a few minutes.
Now that you have wet your
appetite, and are on your way to

rotransmitters that help regulate
mood in the brain. Omega-3s
are good for your brain while
saturated fats found in animal
products and processed foods
can have a negative effect on
your mood. Adding foods high
in omega-3s to your diet may
help you feel better.
Go fishing for omega-3s
Fish such as salmon, trout,
tuna, sardines and herring are
high in omega-3s. A 3-ounce
serving of salmon or trout has
between 7 and 10 grams of fat,
most of that being the omega-
3s. Other foods that are good
sources include canola oil, flax-
seed, flaxseed oil, soybeans,
soybean oil and walnuts.
How much is enough
The Food and Drug
Administration recommends a


- - -


*AM









0 Mb


maximum of 3 grams of omega
3s, with no more than 2 grams
per day from a dietary supple-
ment. To get these fatty acids,
try eating fish at least twice a
week or take 500 1000 mil-
ligrams of fish oil pills daily. If
you get a fish burp from taking
the pills, then look for the coat-
ed variety or the ones labeled
"burp less" so you can get the
benefits without a fishy after-
taste.
Five tips to get your omega-
3s
*Add canned fish or fish in
a pouch such as salmon or tuna
to a salad at lunch to help your
budget while getting a mood
boost.
*Buy frozen or fresh salmon
or tuna during a seafood road
show at your commissary at


really great prices. Freeze some
in individual portions; grill
some for dinner, and save some
for lunch the next day.
*Have a handful of walnuts
for a snack twice a week or add
them to a salad.
*Mix some ground flaxseed
in cereal, yogurt and anything
you bake.
*Use canola oil when cook-
ing and baking.
Choosing foods that are high
in omega-3s in place of foods
that are high in saturated fat can
truly help you feel better. And
research shows they're also as
good for the heart as they are
for the mood. So "go fishing"
for these foods in your commis-
sary, where it's always worth
the trip with savings of 30 per-
cent or more.

New Multimedia Testing


For Advancement


By Lt. j.g. Lauren Gammache
Naval Education and Training Professional Development and
Technology Center Public. ;
In anticipation for the March 2009 exam
cycle, the Navy Advancement Center (NAC) at
the Naval Education and Training Professional
Development and Technology Center
(NETPDTC) in Pensacola, will implement a new
hybrid advancement examination.
The first rating to use this technology will be
first class petty officers in the musician rating.
The latest multimedia exam will include sections
using an Apple iPod to facilitate the audio and
visual skills that the musician rating requires to
be tested for advancement.
The Navy Advancement Center was tasked with
finding a way to improve how the Navy delivers
advancement exams to Sailors while remaining
current, secure and timely. This new method of
testing material will pair with the original paper
and pencil exams and will alleviate the need to
ship laptops and thumb drives across the fleet for
ratings that require multimedia testing ability.
"We were faced with losing the multimedia
exam, at no fault of the exam center. You can
imagine the technical problems associated with
trying to conduct these types of exams, on dif-
ferent computers, with varied broadband connec-
tions, at numerous places throughout the world,"
said Lt. Cmdr. Dwaine Whitham, Navy Music


Program.
Including an audio/visual portion of the musi-
cian's advancement exam allows the community
to be tested on specific knowledge necessary for
advancement.
"MU's will be able to test their ear training
ability by listening to and evaluating musical
examples and be able to evaluate conducting
examples using the video features of the iPod,"
said Senior Chief Musician Keith Gill, assistant
director, Navy Band Mid-South.
Security of the new hybrid process also played
a key factor in development. The new method not
only eliminates lost answers, but also removes the
possibility of losing an exam due to poor Internet
connection or computer mishap. The iPod cannot
store answers so the exam cannot be compro-
mised.
"This is definitely a great move for the Navy
and our Sailors," said Whitham. "The use of these
devices puts 100 percent of the testing material
and process back into the exam centers' hands."
The musician rate will be the first to take part
in exams that incorporate the iPod. However,
NAC hopes to expand the multimedia testing to
ratings which may also benefit from a multimedia
outlet as soon as possible.

Understand Auto Warranties


By Bryan Kreyling
RLSO Legal Intern
Purchasing an automobile can
be one of the most significant
financial investments in a per-
son's life. Unfortunately, many
people are mistakenly more
concerned with the make, model
or color of the vehicle than the
warranty which provides for
repairs in case it does not oper-
ate as expected. The warranty
included with a vehicle should
hold tremendous weight in the
purchasing process, and exten-
sive time should be dedicated to
reading it closely.
Every new car that rolls off
the assembly line comes with a
"basic" or "factory" warranty.
Normally, this "bumper-to-bum-
per" coverage includes free of
charge replacement of any com-
ponent on the car that malfunc-
tions for a set number of years
or miles, whichever comes first.
(Check your own warranty
because time and mileage limits
vary.) Usually, the only excep-
tions to this kind of warranty
are normal maintenance items
(like brake pads or oil filters),
the battery and the tires. When
you pass the time or mileage
limit, the warranty expires. For
example, if a car came with a
"three year/36,000 mile warran-
ty" and had only 1,000 miles on
the odometer, it would no lon-
ger be covered after three years
and one day. That same car,
if it had 36,001 miles, would
no longer be covered after only
six months. Additionally, most
new cars come with a pov' -
ertrain" warranty which cov-
ers the engine, transmission and
driveshaft. This coverage lasts
as long as the basic warranty,
but usually extends longer.
It is important to pay close
attention to the warranty and
make sure you understand
exactly what is and is not cov-


ered. For example, some war-
ranties offer roadside-assistance
plans that include towing, rent-
al-car reimbursements and other
expenses incurred if your car
breaks down.
Car buyers who plan on own-
ing the vehicle for a long time
can opt to purchase a "ser-
vice contract," also called an
"extended warranty." With a
service contract, the buyer is
able to select the provider and
type of coverage. Be weary of
salesmen who attempt to sell
you a service contract with the
dealer as the service provider.
While it may seem convenient,
it is not necessary that you pur-
chase a service agreement with
the dealer, and you are free to
shop around. Many internet
companies are able to offer ser-
vice contracts at reduced prices
because the middle man (the
dealer) is eliminated from the
equation. Make sure, though, to
investigate the financial stabil-
ity of any internet provider and
call the Better Business Bureau
to check for complaints before
purchasing this type of service
contract.
Warranties for used cars are a
little bit different. According to
the Federal Trade Commission's
Used-Car Rule, all used car
dealers are obligated by law to
post a Buyer's Guide in each
car. This one-page guide must
include all warranty information
pertaining to the vehicle, includ-
ing what is covered and how
long the coverage lasts. Some
basic warranties, but not some
powertrain warranties, that
come with new cars are trans-
ferable from owner to owner.
Again, you'll have to read your
own warranty for details on
transferability. A used car buyer
can shop for a service contract
in the same way as if he or she
was purchasing a new car, but


check if your used automobile
is eligible for coverage.
One of the most important
things to remember when buy-
ing a used car is the meaning of
an "as is" clause. Buying "as
is" makes the buyer responsible
for all repairs immediately and
provides zero warranty cover-
age. Some states require the
seller to take more action, other
than just labeling a sale "as is."
If you are purchasing a car "as
is," you should be aware of this
potential problem and negotiate
the price down to compensate
for potential repairs.
Many smart car buyers pro-
tect themselves by having an
independent mechanic inspect
a vehicle before they purchase
it. You can also prevent poten-
tial problems by reviewing your
warranty or service contract
with a legal assistance attorney
for free before you purchase.

My favorite game is D Ojl il 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,
i I to understand their ad. The price advertised, is the price your pay, including everything, all taxes, fees
and tag... DRIVE 0UT!
