Roadwork To


Effect Traffic


Pattern, Parking


An illustration of Lamps Road shows the area that will be closed
to vehicular traffic during construction to improve visibility in the


area.
From Staff
Two road projects around
Naval Station Mayport will
be getting underway this
month and will temporarily
effect in those areas.
Lamps Road, connecting
the large Fire & Emergency
Services parking lot to
Patrol Road will be closed
to vehicular traffic from
Oct. 14-31 while Otak
Group, Inc. installs a new
sidewalk from the parking
lot area to Building 1343,
according to Joann Mason
of NAVFAC SE.
"This closure is necessary
to allow additional safety
measures for the personnel
transiting this area walk-
ing and safe access for the


contractors' construction of
the sidewalk," she said.
On Oct. 12-13, the Bank
of America parking lot will
be closed while crew resur-
face the parking lot and
the Foc'sle Lounge/Surfside
Fitness parking lot will
be closed on Oct. 13-14 for
the same treatment. Since
most of the work is being
performed on the weekend
or holiday, there should
be minimal impact for the
resurfacing project. The
work will also be completed
in two phases to allow some
parking availability at the
sites.

Navy Updates IA/GSA Assignment Policies


By MCC(SW) Maria Yager
The Navy announced updates
Sept. 29 to the Individual
Augmentee Manpower
Management (IAMM) and
Global War on Terrorism
(GWOT) Support Assignment
(GSA) programs, the two pro-
grams used for manning the
Navy's joint manning doctrine
requirements for GWOT.
"Our efforts are focused on
meeting our operational and
GWOT support requirements,
while providing our Sailors and
their families the support they
deserve," said Vice Adm. Mark
Ferguson, III, Chief of Naval
Personnel, in the NAVADMIN.


"Our goal remains to move
the majority of GWOT assign-
ments into normal PCS rotation
window, increase predictabil-
ity and stability for our Sailors
and their families, and improve
manning stability at the unit
level," added Ferguson.
The NAVADMIN 276/08
provides updates on follow-
on detailing, IA advancement
rates, suitability screening,
enlisted and junior officer IA/
GSA assignments, and it also
discusses the impact of Status
of Forces Agreements on GSA
Sailors whose families wish to
remain overseas.
Advancement data show that


IA/GSA Sailors have a higher
overall average advancement
rate than Sailors who have not
served an IA/GSA. In the most
recent chief petty officer selec-
tion board, IA/GSA Sailors had
a higher than average selection
rates to chief. Selection boards
are directed to give favorable
consideration to those candi-
dates displaying superior per-
formance while serving in direct
support of GWOT.
The NAVADMIN lists detail-
ing guarantees for junior officers
in pay grades 0-1 to 0-3 who
complete an IA or GSA tour
from shore slates. Guarantees
include choice of fleet concen-


tration area or homeport upon
completion of a GSA/IA tour,
and slating credit, which ranks
an officer who has completed
an IA/GSA above peers with
similar qualifications and fit-
ness reports.
The NAVADMIN discusses
options for Sailors who wish
for their families to remain
overseas while serving on the
GSA. In those instances where a
Sailor is disadvantaged by GSA,
and the overseas commander
agrees to host dependents while
the Sailor is on the IA, IAMM
may be allowed in lieu of GSA
orders. Requests for IAMM
vice GSA orders from overseas


Sailors must be made to detail-
ers during the orders negotiation
process, and must be positively
endorsed by the command indi-
cating sponsorship for the entire
IA tour.
Sailors interested in serving
an IA or GSA should review
NAVADMIN 276/08 in its
entirety. The NAVADMIN can
be found under messages at
www.npc.navy.mil.
Additional guidance is also
available in NAVADMINs

2 THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, October 9, 2008


O Column


I've got to be honest with
you and tell you that the first
Navy Ball I ever attended was
last year. Throughout the last
25 years, I came up with plenty
excuses not to....squadron func-
tions, too many Navy events
already, don't want to spend the
money, etc. I can tell you that
after last year's Ball I realized
that I had missed a lot of good
fun, chance to socialize with
people outside of the workplace,
meet spouses and significant
others, and most importantly
celebrate the birthday of our
great Navy and be a part of the
most significant and powerful
Navy in the World. I'm pleased
to announce that Congressman
Ander Crenshaw will be our
guest speaker and that we will
have members of the Fletcher
High School band performing
during the evening. Its time
to buy your tickets and go out
and find that new dress or suit
- unfortunately my plan to stan-
dardize a "spouses uniform" has
still not been endorsed by the
Uniform Board and my home
closet will be the proud owner
of yet another formal gown -


Capt. Aaron Bowman
that's alright, my wife is more
than worth it! The ball is Oct,
24 and tickets are on sale at the
ITT office.
On Sunday, Oct. 5, we gave
a "Mayport Welcome" to our
returning war fighters from the
USS Farragut, USS Boone,
USS McInerney and embarked
Helicopter Anti-Submarine
Squadron Light (HSL-42)
Detachment 4, and HSL-44
Detachment 8. Once again
Mayport dominated the local
news media on television and
in the newspaper with a bunch


of happy families and profes-
sional sailors. While deployed,
the crews participated in sev-
eral multi-lateral exercises
with coalition partners in the
Caribbean, Eastern Pacific and
South America. Additionally,
the USS McInerney and USS
Boone captured a combined
26 tons of cocaine from drug
smugglers you can't imagine
how much I enjoy having such
a large quantity of illegal drugs
on our base. On Monday, USS
De Wert and embarked HSL-
46 Detachment 1 returned from
their own six-month tour. While
deployed, the crew participated
in several multi-lateral exercis-
es and rolled up their sleeves
for several community service
projects in Roatan, Honduras.
To top off the success of their
travels, the crew busted a fish-
ing vessel with 3.6 metric tons
of cocaine. Congratulations to
everyone, and welcome home.
Oct. 13 is the birthday of
our Navy, and this year USS
Stephen W. Groves will make a
port call downtown Jacksonville
for the first time since 2002.
This effort took plenty of


coordination and my hat is
off to the U.S. Navy League
Mayport Council and the City
of Jacksonville for making this
happen. Free tours of the ship
will be conducted on Saturday,
Oct. 11 from 8-11 a.m., and at
1-4 p.m. On Sunday, the tour
times will be the same. For
more information, call 630-
3690.
Mayport Combined Federal
Campaign (CFC) season is here
and will run until Nov. 25. The
Region's 2008 CFC team has
chosen the following incentive
prizes for individuals who turn
their pledge forms in before
Nov. 25 or Dec. 31 for deployed
units. The prizes are: first prize,
a five-day Caribbean Cruise for
two; second prize, an HD LCD
color TV; third prize, $400 Gift
Card; fourth prize, a weekend
getaway for two; fifth prize, a
one week free car rental; sixth
prize, $200 gift card; and sev-
enth prize, $100 gift card.
Finalists will be picked by
random drawing and will par-
ticipate in a drawing to deter-
mine which incentive prize they
receive at the CFC Celebration


in late January 2009. Special
recognition gifts for leader-
ship givers are: Double Eagle
($1,200+) Weekend Duffle
Bag, American Flag and Eagle
Award, Sandstone Coaster,
and Key Light. Eagle ($600
- $1,199) American Flag and
Eagle Award, Sandstone
Coaster, and Key Light. Patriot
($300 $599) Sandstone
Coaster, and Key Light. Pioneer
($150-$299) Key Light. Many
organizations rely on your gen-
erous donations, and I encour-
age everyone to participate in
this very worthy program. Even
a minimum donation can make
a huge difference.
There is a recent change
involving policy to address the
high number of foreclosures in
the housing industry. DoD has
come out with policy that will
enable renters who are being
evicted due to foreclosures on
their rental unit to claim a local
government funded move. We
are still working out the details
on what documentation is
required but if you are being
forced to vacate your rental
property due to foreclosure,


see the housing office for assis-
tance.
The deadline for voter reg-
istration is rapidly approach-
ing. I vote absentee and I was
able to take care of both me and
my wife in about five minutes
on Federal Voting Assistance
Program (FVAP), fpav.gov.
Please take the time to register
and vote its one of the things
that makes this such a great
country.
Last but certainly not least,
I want to mention that our
Navy College Office will host
an education fair on Tuesday,
Oct. 14 from 11 a.m.-I p.m.
Continuing your education is
highly encouraged from the
leadership at the CNO level on
down to the Chiefs at the deck
plates. I certainly would like
to see everyone achieve their
degree, and the Navy College
office is standing by to help you
get there.
Keep sending those great
suggestions to aaron.bowman@
navy.mil or drop them off at the
CO's suggestion box located at
the base galley. Your concerns
are my concerns.

Deployment; there are too
many letters in this word.
Shouldn't this be designated
a four-letter-word. I think we
need deployment bumper stick-
ers? How about 'Deployment
happens," or 'Warning: Spouse
of Deployed Service Member,"
or "You're Welcome: My
Spouse is Deployed for Your
Safety" and my personal favor-
ite; "Deployment: My Marriage
on Hold for Your Freedom."
The very word conjures up
thoughts, memories and feel-
ings that, to be honest, I'd like
to avoid. For military spouses


and families, deployment is a
fact of life. But since my pro-
testations, whining and com-
plaining, begging and pleading
(and cheesy bumper stickers)
will not change the DoD's need
to deploy my service member
I have to find my way through
deployment. But how? How can
anything make this pleasant?
I had gastric by-pass sur-
gery about a year ago (yes,
there really is a connection to
deployment). My surgery was
performed at UCLA. I had a
wonderful surgeon and surgi-
cal team. But more than that,
I had outstanding pre-surgical
and post-surgical preparation
and care. Prior to my surgery I

Likewise, deployment is anal-

Preparing for deployment both
practically and emotionally will
directly impact your successful
navigation through deployment.
Let's face it, Deployment stinks.
But, like surgery, understand the
procedure, the resources and the

in it, will help us face deploy-
ment with courage, confidence
and success.
The educational process I
experienced prior to my sur-
gery was a result of their many
years of performing the surgery
and supporting patient success.
Likewise there are resources


and information, developed over
decades of deployments, avail-
able to us, as military families,
to help us navigate the 'heart
surgery' of deployment. This
week's column starts a four-
week series on deployment;
what to expect, the emotional
cycle of deployment, resources
and information that will help
us navigate deployment with
our sanity and our relationships
intact.

CNIC, CMC


Award Traffic


Safety Contract


By Navy Installations Command Public

Commander, Navy
Installations Command (CNIC)
and Commandant of the Marine
Corps (CMC) awarded a $53-
million fleetwide motorcycle
and roadway safety instruc-
tion contract to Cape Fox
Professional Services Sept. 1.
In an effort to improve on the
safety of the Navy and Marine
Corps personnel, this contract
will provide all elements of a
global Navy and Marine Corps
Traffic Safety and Recreational
Off-Duty Safety (TS/RODS)
program.
This worldwide contract was
coordinated with the Fleet and
Industrial Supply Center (FISC)
San Diego's contracting team,
which was able to award the
contract in record time to get
this program to the fleet and
field as soon as possible.
According to the one-year
base contract with four-year
option, Cape Fox will create and
implement training programs
designed to address motorcycle/
vehicular accidents and engage
in studies that assist the Navy
and Marine Corps in improving
overall program responsiveness,
to include the investigating of
new training media and tools to
ensure all personnel are aware
of the programs and have access
to them.
"Cape Fox brings the expe-
rience of having implemented
and managed the Army Traffic
Safety program over the past



-L better to
Kudos to Officer Stedstrom
for so actively patrolling our
beach near the Hanna Park
poles. For hours, Officer
Stedstrom repeatedly and tire-
lessly spoke to Hanna Park
surfers and beachgoers through
the p.a. system, ordering them
to either head out to the surf


year. Their program manage-
ment approach will be utilized
to execute the contract by train-
ing on a standardized basis
across the enterprise," said
Capt. Don Smallwood, CNIC
N3 Traffic Safety. "Cape Fox in
partnership with CNIC Regional
Safety offices will administer
and monitor the complete traffic
safety program."
"CNIC is responsible for
the Navy's operational sup-
port of the fleet, fighter and
family and this program will
assist the Navy worldwide by
providing the right training for
today's Sailors and the lifestyles
they employ" said Anne Davis,
CNIC Executive Director.
"CNIC, working closely with
the Naval Safety Center and the
Marine Corps, sensed this need
and responded quickly to make
this happen."
Under the contract's "state-
ment of objectives," Cape Fox
is tasked to provide a read-
ily accessible source of robust
training programs to include,
but not limited to, basic and
advanced instruction in motor-
cycle safety, off-road vehicle
safety, and water-craft safe-
ty at Navy and Marine Corps
Installations worldwide. The
contractor must also prove flex-
ible enough to provide training
utilizing training motorcycles
and, if applicable and practica-
ble, the latest virtual technology
to include, but not limited to,
realistic simulators.

CREDO Corner

Slowly the ride climbs higher
and higher. It feels great and
you feel free until you reach
the top. Now you start looking
down. Your stomach gets tight.
Your mind says, "What have I
done? Why am I here?" Then
it starts to fall and your stom-
ach is in your throat. You get
a queasy feeling and it seems
like the free-fall will never end.
Your thoughts are focused on
surviving to the end of the ride.
It's not a roller-coaster I'm
describing but what many have
experienced in the financial
world lately. The feelings are
real for many people and per-
haps for you. It is gut-wrench-
ing and grabs our attention.
This ride is an anxious and dif-
ficult one for many.

How do you react to adver-
sity? Adversity is born out of
a loss of control in our lives.
The less power we have over
situations the easier it is to
feel anguish and frustration. It
seems as if our whole world
is coming apart in front of our
eyes. For many the loss of
monetary value, the diminish-
ment of future retirement aspi-
rations, or the loss of buying
power, is almost overwhelming.
Perhaps you are facing adver-
sity; if not from the financial
markets, from personal loss,
or relationship failure. When
adversity strikes, what will be
your response? Life's challeng-
es have a way of getting us off
course. How can we steer back
to the proper heading?
Watching the ships come in
from sea in Mayport, reminds
me of when I faced adversity
at sea. One day I found myself


navigating the jetties in my sail-
boat and what got me through
was diligent concentration and a
positive belief that I could make
it. Though the wakes rolled my
boat up and down and made it
hard to maintain course, it was
my determination that enabled
me to continue up the river.
That experience helped me
grow as a sailor and as a person,
but adversity comes in many
different life experiences
Adversity can be a great tool
for personal growth. There is a
lesson to be learned in what you
are going through right now.
Adversity allows for opportu-
nities to make course changes
that put you back on track. Our
true colors show in adversity.
We can react positively or nega-
tively. Hopefully, the result of
adversity is that we gain greater
empathy and compassion for
our fellow navigators on the


sea of life. When I go through
tough times, I'm glad to have
someone who understands and
can guide me to a safe harbor.
We can aspire to the goal that
today's experience will in the
future provide guidance for oth-
ers.
Our adversity today can
be tomorrow's opportunity.
Making it through a difficult
time in life gives us the experi-
ence to know that we can make
it through anything in life. It
can also inspire us to lead oth-
ers along the way.
Your focus today may be on
how to make it through the ride
at this moment, but I want to
encourage you that you will
make it. And when you get
in line to do it again share the
experience with someone else.


Share the power of a wish.

Ships Arrive In Scotland For Joint Warrior


By MC2 Joseph R. Wax
COMDESRON 24 Public, ;
A group of Navy ships led
by Commander Destroyer
Squadron 24 (COMDESRON
24) arrived in Faslane, Scotland
Oct 1 to participate in the Joint
Warrior Course, a multi-nation-
al exercise held off the coast of
Scotland.
USS Mitscher (DDG 57),
USS Hawes (FFG 53), USS


Doyle (FFG 39), USS Klakring
(FFG 42), and USNS Leroy
Grumman
(T-AO 195) will take part
in the coalition course, which
is run by the Joint Tactical
Exercise Planning Staff (JTEPS)
in the United Kingdom.
"The purpose of the exer-
cise is to improve interoper-
ability with our allies," said
Lt. Cmdr. Michael Violette,


COMDESRON 24 operations
officer. "During this scenario
driven event, we will bring all
the capabilities of the coalition
together to accomplish the mis-
sion."
Capt. John Kersh,
Commander, Destroyer
Squadron 24, and his staff will
get the unique experience of
embarking aboard HMS Ark


Royal for the exercise to fully
integrate into a joint maritime
operating environment.
"Together we are advanc-
ing the art and state of training
in the Maritime domain," said
Kersh. "We are teaming with
our allied partners to execute
the Navy's Maritime Strategy."
According to Violette, one
of the main benefits of Joint


Warrior is that it provides U.S.
ships a unique opportunity to
operate under NATO rules of
engagement (ROE) while con-
ducting realistic training.
Joint Warrior also serves as a
certifying event for ships pre-
paring to operate with coalition
partners during future deploy-
ments.
"Our ships are also getting
their independent deployer cer-


tification out of this event," said
Violette. "This will allow our
ships to be versatile coalition
assets."
The two-week Joint Warrior
exercise began Oct. 6 off the
coast of Scotland, where the
participating navies will prac-
tice joint maritime operations in
a controlled environment.

The Sullivans Participates


In Normandy Memorial


By Ensign Carl Comasco
USS The Sullivans
Recently, USS The Sullivans
had the privilege of docking in
Cherbourg, France.
The ship's mission for stop-
ping in the northern French
town was to provide a detail
of Navy Sailors to assist at the
unveiling of the U.S. Navy
Memorial at Utah Beach,
Normandy.
This memorial, dedicated to
the memory of the 1,068 Sailors
who gave their lives during
Operation Neptune the larg-
est amphibious invasion ever
conducted, through which the
U.S. and Allied Forces liberated
France and began to take back
the European continent -would
be the first of its kind to honor
the Sailors who made the cam-
paign possible.

many Sullivans' Sailors were

Boone Returns To Mayport After Deployment


By Ensign Emily S. Castro
USS Boone Public, ; Officer
USS Boone (FFG 28) and
embarked units returned home
Oct 5 after six months deployed
to the Eastern Pacific Ocean and
the Caribbean Sea.
Boone and Helicopter Anti-
Submarine Squadron Light
(HSL) 42 Detachment 2 (Det
2) of Mayport, and U.S. Coast
Guard Law Enforcement
Detachment (LEDET) 406 of
Miami, returned home to fam-
ily and friends after conduct-
ing counter-illicit trafficking
operations in the U.S. Southern
Command area of focus, which
encompasses the Caribbean,
Central and South America, and
surrounding waters.
During the deployment,
Boone transited through the
Panama Canal four times,
intercepted 3.6 tons of illegal
drugs, and rescued 50 migrants
while investigating a suspi-
cious vessel. Boone provided
the migrants with medical care,
showers, shelter, and food
before returning them safely to
shore.
Boone's Commanding Officer
Cmdr. Newman J. Evans, III
commented that Boone Sailors
have made a difference in the
SOUTHCOM area of focus
and said, "Everyone performed
superbly over the past six
months and I am very proud
of each and every Sailor on
Boone."
Boone took short patrol
breaks in ports that allowed the
crew to experience the culture
of Central and South American
countries. In Panama, Sailors
had the opportunity to fish,
tour native villages, surf, and
dive. Sailors also participat-
ed in a Community Relations
(COMREL) project at the
Pu Malambo Orphanage in
Arraijan, Panama.

ipated in the orphanage's 118th
Birthday "Malambado" celebra-
tion.
Boone also visited Cartagena,
Colombia, and Sailors par-
ticipated in tours of Spanish
forts, uninhabited islands,
and Colombian naval vessels.
Boone's Chief Petty Officer's
Mess gave Project Handclasp
materials to a local orphanage.
The materials included toys
as well as health and comfort
items.
Project Handclasp is a world-
wide humanitarian and good-


will program that collects
donations from various pri-
vate-sector organizations and
companies, and is delivered to
people in need by the U.S. mili-
tary. Also while in Colombia,
Sailors participated in a basket-
ball game against the crew form
the Colombian Navy submarine
ARC Pijao (S-28).
Boone conducted numer-
ous training events during
their deployment including
an Expendable Mobile Anti-
Submarine Warfare (ASW)
Training Target (EMATT)
exercise to increase antisubma-


rine warfare proficiency and
improve ship and helicopter
interaction. Immediately fol-
lowing the EMATT, Boone's
Boatswain's Mates, Gunner's
Mates, and Search and Rescue
(SAR) swimmers conducted a
successful recovery of the air-
dropped Recoverable Exercise
Torpedo (REXTORP).
Boone also pulled into Puerto
Quetzal, Guatemala, where
Sailors had the opportunity to
tour ancient Mayan ruins and
participate in volleyball, soccer,
and basketball games against
Sailors from the Guatemalan


Navy.
After returning to Panama
several times, Boone made their
final liberty stop in Cozumel,
Mexico, where the crew enjoyed
the tropical climate and clear
water.
During the deployment,
McInerney was under opera-
tional control of U.S. Naval
Forces Southern Command
(NAVSO)/U.S. 4th Fleet con-
ducting counter-illicit traf-
ficking operations for Joint
Interagency Task Force-South

Farragut Completes POA 08, Returns Home


By Lt. Jacob Steele
DESRON 40 Public. ;
USS Farragut (DDG-99)
returned to its homeport at
Naval Station Mayport Oct.
5 after a six-month deploy-
ment with Destroyer Squadron
(DESRON) 40 in support of
Partnership of the Americas
2008 (POA 08).
Farragut departed Mayport
Apr. 7 on the first leg of their
route to circumnavigate South
America.
In Rio, Farragut partici-
pated with DESRON 40 ship
USS Kauffman (FFG-59) and
embarked Helicopter Anti-sub-
marine Squadron Light (HSL)
42 Detachment 7 as well as
USS George Washington (CVN-
73) in the Atlantic Phase of the
multi-national UNITAS exer-
cise.
Another important compo-
nent of the Partnership of the
Americas engagement were the
Theater Security Cooperation
(TSC) missions, which Farragut
conducted in each one of
the13 ports it pulled into dur-
ing the deployment. TSC
Missions feature Subject Matter
Expert Exchanges (SMEE),
Distinguished Visitor tours,
receptions, and sporting events
which promote goodwill and
esprit de corps between the
U.S. Navy and Partner Nation
navies.
Consistently, one of the most
powerful acts of goodwill in
which Farragut Sailors par-
ticipated were the Community
Relations (COMREL) projects,
which were a part of every TSC
mission. During COMRELs,
Farragut Sailors helped paint
and rebuild schools, orphanag-
es, and elders' residences in 13
cities throughout the Caribbean
and Central and South America.
In conjunction with the
COMREL projects, Farragut
distributed donated goods from
Project Handclasp, an official
U.S. Navy program which coor-
dinates delivery of humanitar-
ian, educational and goodwill
material, to all 13 cities they
visited.
Upon completion of
UNITAS Atlantic Phase,
Farragut conducted TSC visits


in Montevideo, Uruguay, and
Ushuaia, Argentina, before tran-
siting the Straits of Magellan
and entering the Pacific Ocean.
"The inland passages near the
Straits of Magellan are some of
the most beautiful and danger-
ous waters in the world," said
Farragut Commanding Officer,
Cmdr. Scott Dugan. "We are
privileged to have sailed there
and faced the challenges the
climate, seas, and weather the
narrow passages provided for
us. Few Sailors in the world
have gone there, and to do so
for such a worthwhile purpose
made it only better."
Farragut then participated in
the Submarine Warfare exer-
cises "EJAS Norte" (Spanish
for Anti-Submarine Warfare
Exercise North) with the
Chilean Navy and Silent Forces
Exercise (SIFOREX) with Peru
before pulling into port in Lima,
Peru, to prepare for UNITAS
Pacific Phase. UNITAS
Pacific included the Navies
of Colombia (who has partici-
pated in all 49 annual UNITAS
exercises held so far), Ecuador,
Peru, and Chile.
The also participated in TSC
events in Cartagena, Colombia,
and then to Colon, Panama, to
participate in the largest multi-
national joint exercise in this
hemisphere, PANAMAX, which
focuses on bringing many
nations together to practice
defending the Panama Canal,
a vital and vulnerable passage
for commercial and military
ships from all over the world.
Over 20 nations and 35 ships
participated this year along with
Farragut.
After successfully completing
PANAMAX, Farragut returned
to conducting TSC missions
in the Caribbean, spreading
goodwill to Curacao, Trinidad
and Tobago, St. Lucia, and
Martinique.
Most recently, Farragut con-
ducted 14 days of Counter-Illicit
Trafficking Operations in the
Caribbean in support of Joint
Interagency Task Force South.
On Oct. 1, Farragut intercept-
ed a vessel with an initial tally
of three metric tons of cocaine
onboard.


"Interdictions such as
Farragut's, which discourage
cartels from shipping illicit
drugs, encourage legal trade
between nations, and perhaps
most importantly, keep drugs
off of American streets, are key
to our safety as a nation and to
regional stability and our ongo-
ing cooperation with Partner
Nations," said Capt. Rudy Laco,
DESRON 40 Commodore.
"As Farragut returns home to
friends and family, her Sailors
can look back on a deployment
full of achievement, success,
faith and goodwill towards all
of our Southern Neighbors,"
said Dugan. "Interoperability,
cooperation, and partnership
cannot be surged. Farragut can
be proud that she has made
enormous steps for the United
States towards just those goals,
and towards ensuring stability
throughout the region for years
to come.'
During the deployment,
Farragut was under operational
control of U.S. Naval Forces
Southern Command (NAVSO)/
U.S. 4th Fleet conducting
TSC missions, and counter-
illicit trafficking operations in
the U.S. Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM) area of focus,
which encompasses the
Caribbean, Central and South
America, and surrounding
waters. Once the ship returned
to Mayport, U.S. 2nd Fleet took
over operational control.
NAVSO, the Naval
Component Command of
SOUTHCOM, directs U.S.
Naval Forces operating in the
Caribbean, Central and South
American regions and interacts
with partner nation navies with-
in the maritime environment.
Various operations include
counter-illicit trafficking,
Theater Security Cooperation,
Humanitarian Assistance and
Disaster Relief, military-to-mil-
itary interaction and bilateral
and multinational training.

bered fleet assigned to NAVSO,

NAVSO/4th Fleet Testifies Before Congress


By MC3 Alan Gragg
U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/
U.S. 4th Fleet Pubhc. ,,
Commander, U.S. Naval
Forces Southern Command
(NAVSO) and U.S.
4th Fleet testified before
Congress' Western Hemisphere
Subcommittee Sept. 23, giving
an update on the humanitarian
assistance/disaster relief (HA/
DR) mission in Haiti.
Rear Adm. Joseph D. Keman,
commander of both NAVSO
and 4th Fleet, spent eight days
aboard USS Kearsarge (LHD
3) coordinating U.S. Naval and
DOD relief efforts and visit-
ing ship's personnel supporting
relief operations in Haiti, which
was heavily damaged by recent
tropical storms and a hurricane.
"Prior to the response in Haiti,
the USS Kearsarge was con-
ducting a humanitarian mission
in Colombia as part of humani-


tarian assistance deployment
in Central and South America
and the Caribbean region called
Continuing Promise 2008,"
Keman said in a prepared state-
ment to the Committee. "The
timing of and preparation for
this mission was purposeful.
The USS Kearsarge was not
only prepared for its planned
humanitarian assistance visits,
but also to respond to disasters
of this nature during the hurri-
cane season."
The subcommittee mem-
bers thanked Keman and USS
Kearsarge and praised the
Department of Defense (DoD)
for its swift response and relief
efforts.
"All of the efforts... would
not have been possible without
the coordinated and combined
efforts of the U.S. Ambassador
in Haiti and country team,
USAID and our interagency


partners, UN organizations such
as MINUSTAH, NGO's, and
very importantly, the Haitian
government," Kernan added.
"I can testify to the success of
these collective efforts in serv-
ing the Haitian people and the
great work being done by our
young Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen,
Marines, DOD Civilians, and
Coastguardsmen."
On Sept. 5, NAVSO/ 4th
Fleet, which is headquartered
at Naval Station Mayport, Fla.,
diverted the amphibious ship
Kearsarge from their Continuing
Promise Humanitarian
Assistance mission in Santa
Marta, Colombia, to assist the
U.S. Agency for International
Development (USAID) in
Haitian communities impacted
by tropical storms Fay, Gustav,
Hanna and Hurricane Ike. The
ship commenced relief support
operations Sept. 8 and Keman


arrived Sept. 10.
"The Department of Defense
brought its unique, sea-based
mobility, medical and engineer-
ing assets to provide critical
support, such as the delivery of
food, water, and medical assis-
tance to remote and difficult to
access locations," said Keman.
To date, Kearsarge's
embarked helicopters and land-
ing craft have delivered more
than 1,400 metric tons of relief
supplies, including almost
31,000 gallons of water to dev-
astated communities isolated
by damaged roads and bridg-
es. USAID's Office of Foreign
Disaster Assistance (OFDA)
priorities the areas needing the
most immediate assistance.
Medical teams from
Kearsarge have worked with
other local agencies in Haiti to
provide medical services to peo-
ple in need. Air Force engineers


and Navy Seabees are mak-
ing assessments in areas where
heavy rains and flooding from
the storms caused damage to
roads, bridges and other critical
infrastructures.
As the Naval Component
Command of SOUTHCOM,
NAVSO's mission, in addi-
tion to humanitarian and disas-
ter relief, is to direct U.S.
Naval Forces operating in the
Caribbean, Central and South
American regions and inter-
act with partner nation navies
within the maritime environ-
ment, countering illicit traffick-
ing, building cooperative, mar-
itime domain awareness, and
conducting a variety of other
Theater Security Cooperation
operations. These efforts are
enabled by recurring military-
to-military interaction and bilat-
eral and multinational training.
Fourth Fleet is the numbered


fleet assigned to NAVSO, exer-
cising operational control of
assigned forces.
Kearsarge is in the Caribbean
supporting phase two of
Continuing Promise 2008, a
humanitarian assistance mission
that includes assisting partner
nations impacted by natural
disasters and other emergencies
resulting in human suffering or
danger to human lives.
Kearsarge embarked person-
nel include service members
from the Navy, Army, Air Force,
Marines and Coast Guard,
along with medical personnel
from the U.S. Public Health
Service, Canadian Army and
Air Force, Brazil, Project Hope
and International Aid. Select
portions of the deployment are
also supported by NGO's such
as Operations Smile and Project
Hope.

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.
Oct. 24, 9-11 a.m.,

FFSC
Oct. 24, 9 a.m.-noon, What
About The Kids?, FFSC
Children who witness fam-
ily violence are often forgot-
ten as the unintended victims.
A wide range of child adjust-
ment problems has been found
to be associated with exposure
to domestic violence. Parent's
need to see and understand the
effects of domestic violence
on children as encompassing
behavior, emotion, development
and socialization. Parents need
to understand that there is an
intergenerational cycle of vio-
lence and they may be creat-
ing a legacy for their child of
learned violent behavior. The
purpose of this program is not
to shame parents for events
that have already happen, but
to instill hope that things can
change. The knowledge that the
violence, which many parents
incorrectly believe is unseen
by their children, is negative-
ly impacting their children's
growth and development and


may provide an additional moti-
vator for ending the violence
and seeking intervention.

U.S. Sailors Paying Bills Even In Leaner Times


By MC2(AW)
LaTunya Howard
Navy Personnel Command Public

Navy Personnel Command
released the results of the 2008
Navy Financial Health Quick
Poll, Sept. 24.
The poll was directed by
the Secretary of the Navy
and administered by Navy
Personnel Research, Studies and
Technology online, May 13-27.
Data was compiled from 3,761
Navy personnel who responded.
The objective of the Quick
Poll was to measure the level
of financial stress recent eco-
nomic changes e.g., increased
gas prices, insurance rates and
higher housing cost are having
on Sailors Navywide. The areas
of focus included overall finan-
cial comfort, living expenses,
and how Permanent Change of
Station moves impact Sailors


financially.
Eleven percent of enlisted
personnel describe their finan-
cial condition as "keeping my
head above water" or "in over
my head." This is slightly lower
than the 15 percent responding
in 2006 Quality of Life Survey.
The top financial problems for
Sailors this past year related to
housing costs, increased utilities
expenses, insurance costs, prop-
erty taxes, mortgage or rent.
Of those polled, 22 percent
of enlisted and 43 percent of
officers are home owners, most
of whom have fixed-rate loans.
A small percentage of Sailors
have adjustable or interest-only
loans.
The Quick Poll also inquired
about a Sailor's ability to save.
Sixty-four percent of enlisted
and 82 percent of officers who
participated in the poll report
contributing to some type of


savings account. Fifty-seven
percent of enlisted personnel
and 58 percent of officers polled
contribute to the Thrift Savings
Program.
Most Sailors agreed that they
are able to pay the bills and
meet their financial obligations.
Financial health is impor-
tant in the Navy because poor
finances can impact readiness.
Financial problems can
contribute to loss of security
clearance, loss of job assign-
ment, inability to pass overseas
screening or other special duty
screenings, increase in alco-
hol consumption, increase in
domestic violence, increase in
stress causing negative affects
on health and could result in an
unaccompanied tour.
The top four solutions Sailors
recommended to combat finan-
cial stress were; subsidize trans-
portation cost, stabilize work


schedule for second job, offer
spouse employment opportuni-
ties and make childcare readily
available and more affordable.
Sailors experiencing financial
stress should consult their chain
of command or contact the Fleet
and Family Service Center.
Navy Personnel Command's
Web site offers tips promoting
financial fitness.
The Navy regularly surveys
Sailors and their families. Some
of the initiatives the Navy and
DoD have taken that were influ-
enced by the results of past sur-
veys:
*Largest pay increase in the
past 10 years
*Raising the housing allow-
ance to 100 percent coverage
*Design changes in shipboard
berthing compartments
*Increased funding for needed


parts and supplies
*Expanded career sea pay
to include junior officers and
junior enlisted
*Changes in detailing to focus
on Sailors' career needs and
desires
*Determining the correct level
of SRBs and continuation pay
in various communities/ratings,


and
*Increased information on
career development in the Navy
provided to Sailors, career coun-
selors, supervisors, and families

USS Mclnerney Returns Home After CD Ops


By Lt. Kelly Chufo
USS McInerney Public.,, Officer
USS McInerney (FFG 8)
and attached Helicopter Anti-
Submarine Squadron Light 44
Detachment 8 (HSL 44 Det 8)
returned home Oct. 5 after six
months at sea.
Families and friends wel-
comed home the crew from a
six-month counter-illicit traf-
ficking deployment in the
Eastern Pacific Ocean.
The highlight of the deploy-
ment came on Sept. 13, when
the crew and embarked U.S.
Coast Guard Law Enforcement
Detachment (LEDET) 404 cap-
tured a Self Propelled Semi-
Submersible (SPSS) vessel con-
taining seven tons of cocaine
and four suspected illicit-traf-
fickers. Throughout their
deployment, McInerney inter-
cepted 22 tons of cocaine.
McInerney left Mayport April
4 en route to the U.S. Southern
Command area of focus, which
encompasses the Caribbean,

Project Handclasp materials to
a local clinic. Project Handclasp
is a worldwide humanitarian
and goodwill program that col-


lects donations from various
private-sector organizations and
companies, and is delivered to
people in need by the U.S. mili-
tary.
While in Central and South
America, Mclnerney made stops


in Vasco Nunez de Balboa,
Panama; Manta, Ecuador;
Salaverry, Peru; Golfito, Costa
Rica; and Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
The ship's last port visit
was in Cartagena, Colombia.
In preparation for the stop,


Mclnerney assembled an entire
bridge watch team of Spanish
speakers who navigated the ship
in to Cartagena giving com-
mands only in Spanish.
"This was Mclnerney's
final tribute to all the amaz-
ing people we met throughout
Central and South America over
the past six months and also a
demonstration of our commit-
ment to strong maritime ties
with allies in the region," said
Commanding Officer, Cmdr. C.
K. Wheeler.
In addition to the COMREL
in Honduras, Mclnerney's crew
dedicated their liberty time to
two other projects. While in
Salaverry, Peru, Mclnerney
painted two large dormitory
buildings for a local orphanage,
which serve as home and school
for over 45 children. Mclnerney
Sailors also gave their time,
working in conjunction with
Colombian Navy Sailors to
paint and rehabilitate a local
school in Cartagena, Colombia,
and donated much needed
school supplies to the school
that teaches over 220 students
daily.
McInerney Sailors achieved
success on all levels, as a unit
and individually. Seventy-eight
Sailors earned their Enlisted


Surface Warfare Specialists
(ESWS) pins.
During the deployment,
McInerney was under opera-
tional control of U.S. Naval
Forces Southern Command
(NAVSO) and U.S. 4th Fleet
conducting counter illicit traf-
ficking operations for Joint
Interagency Task Force-South
in the SOUTHCOM area of
focus. Once the ship returned
to Mayport, U.S. 2nd Fleet took
over operational control.
NAVSO, the Naval
Component Command of
SOUTHCOM, directs U.S.
Naval Forces operating in the
Caribbean, Central and South
American regions and interacts
with partner nation navies with-
in the maritime environment.
Various operations include
counter-illicit trafficking,
Theater Security Cooperation,
Humanitarian Assistance and
Disaster Relief, military-to-mil-
itary interaction and bilateral
and multinational training.
Fourth Fleet is the numbered
fleet assigned to NAVSO, exer-
cising operational control of
assigned forces that operate in
the SOUTHCOM area of focus.

USS De Wert Completes Successful CD Ops


From USSDe Wert Public Affairs
USS De Wert (FFG 45)
returned to homeport at Naval
Station Mayport Oct. 6 after
a five-month Counter-Illicit
deployment to the Eastern
Pacific with Helicopter Anti-
Submarine Squadron Light 46
Detachment One (HSL-46 Det
One) and Coast Guard Law
Enforcement Detachments
(LEDET) 101 and 103.
De Wert succeeded in stop-
ping 8.1 metric tons of cocaine
with an estimated wholesale
value of $180 million.
On July 11, De Wert,
LEDET 103, HSL-46 Det One,
and Columbian Navy ship
Buenaventura worked together
to successfully intercepted two
go-fasts vessels each carrying
over a ton of cocaine. De Wert
recovered several bales that one
of the suspect vessels tried to
jettison, and the bales were later
confirmed to be narcotics. On
Sept 20, De Wert, HSL-46 Det
One, and LEDET 101 intercept-
ed a fishing vessel carrying over
three metric tons of cocaine.
De Wert departed Mayport
May 23, and stopped in Roatan,
Honduras for a brief port visit,
where De Wert Sailors enjoyed
snorkeling and diving, shopping,
and relaxing on the beach in
Roatan's West Bay. Sailors also
participated in a Community
Relations (COMREL) project

Curacao, Netherlands Antilles.
The port visits provided the
Sailors with liberty along with
a chance to experience the cul-
ture of the host nations. The


Morale, Welfare, and Recreation
(MWR) team set up numerous
trips including tours of local
temples in Salaverry, a white-
water rafting trip in VNB, and
a beach trip and driving tour of
the city in Curacao.
In addition to the COMREL
project in Roatan, De Wert
Sailors lent their time to repaint
the wall of Severina Hernandez
Elementary School in VNB in


De Wert also participated in
Project Handclasp, donating
four pallets containing over
1,000 lbs of donated goods to a
local hospital and several local
clinics in Roatan, and two pal-
lets containing over 500 lbs of
donated goods to the school-
children of Severina Hemandez
Elementary School in VNB.
Project Handclasp is a U.S.
Navy program which coordi-
nates the transportation and
delivery of hygienic and educa-
tional material to needy partici-
pants throughout the world.

NCIS Crime Reductio


By MC1(SW/AW)
Kristen Allen
Naval Criminal Investigative Service
Public.;-
The Naval Criminal
Investigative Service (NCIS)
is kicking off its new Crime
Reduction Program (CRP) Oct.
1.
The program will provide
education and awareness on a
variety of crimes throughout
the year as identified by current
trends, crime report statistics,
and the needs of the Department
of the Navy (DoN).
The first program theme
that will be highlighted from
October through December is:
"Break the Silence, Break the
Cycle: End Domestic Abuse."
Supervisory Special Agent
Diane Nelson of the NCIS
Criminal Investigations
Directorate said this campaign
is vital for military service
members, their families, and the
communities in which they live.
"Domestic violence impacts
Sailors, Marines, those with
whom they work, operational


readiness, and military morale
and welfare," said Diane.
"Operational stress can lead to
domestic violence. Education
is paramount in helping our
Sailors and Marines identify
their stressors and ways to cope
with them before they escalate
into criminal behavior."
The CRP is a new initia-
tive in which NCIS will work
in conjunction with the Judge
Advocate General (JAG), pub-
lic affairs, Family Advocacy
Program (FAP), Chaplain Corps,
and other Navy commands to
proactively fight crime within
the military community.
NCIS, as the lead law enforce-
ment organization for the DON,
will spearhead the partnership
from headquarters with assis-
tance from the Fleet and Family
Support Center (FFSC), Navy
Family Ombudsman Program,
and other Navy and Marine
Corps entities.
NCIS Headquarters will
direct the campaign and pro-
vide information and marketing
materials to each NCIS Field


Office. Local NCIS and FFSC
representatives will then work
together to ensure that the crime
reduction message and training
get out to their respective instal-
lations.
Along with education to pre-
vent domestic violence, Diane
said this campaign is also about
helping victims or potential vic-
tims understand what resources
are available to them and that
they are not alone.
Carrie said it's important for
all service members and their
families to realize that domestic
violence, public or private, is
everyone's problem.
"It's not just something you
read about or see in the mov-
ies, it happens in your commu-
nity and maybe even your own
home," added Carrie. "If you
have seen, heard about or felt
the effects of domestic violence,
it is your responsibility as a
member of the military commu-
nity to take action. By keeping
quiet, you are telling the abuser
that their vicious behavior is
ok."


n Prog
Carrie pointed out that any-
one can be a victim or an abus-
er, regardless of age, sex, race,
culture, religion, education,
employment or marital status.
"The only common thread
is the relationship between the
abuser and the abused, where
the abuser uses a set of behav-
iors to control another person,"
said Carrie. "Whether the
abuse is a one-time attack or
prolonged aggression, domes-
tic violence can have lasting
effects, and it can transform the
home from a place of safety and
love to one of danger and fear."
She also said it's important
for everyone to realize that
domestic abuse is not only
physical.
"It's not just black eyes and
broken bones," said Carrie.
"It can also be verbal abuse,
attempts to belittle and shat-
ter your self-esteem. It can
be threats and intimidation. It
can be zero control over your
finances, making you complete-
ly dependent upon your abuser."
The program also encourages


THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, October 9, 2008 13


ram Kicks Off


victims and witnesses to report
abuse.
"Don't tell yourself it can't
get any worse," said Carrie.
"Department of Defense sta-
tistics report that 33 percent
of female homicide victims
are killed by an intimate part-
ner. While you may be afraid
to report domestic violence
because of career problems or
the possibility of the abuse get-
ting worse, the Department of
the Navy has resources to help
you."
Carrie said that the earlier
domestic violence is reported,
the higher the chances of suc-
cessful treatment and the con-
tinuation of a normal military
career.
Some of the resources avail-
able to victims, abusers and
witnesses include the Family
Advocacy Program at your local
FFSC, the FFSC Web site www.
nffsp.org, and the National
Domestic Violence Hotline 1-
800-799-SAFE (7233).
Carrie stressed that domes-
tic violence is not just wrong,


it's also a crime. Sometimes if
a service member is convicted
of a domestic violence assault,
even a misdemeanor, they
can no longer deploy, which
impacts unit morale and readi-
ness. She said domestic vio-
lence can be prevented if people
get involved.
"Step up and intervene," she
said. "Break the silence. Break
the cycle. You're not only
authorized to report suspected
domestic violence, you're obli-
gated to do it"

Don't accept

New Shipboard Insulation


Expected To Save


From Naval Sea .. Command
Public.;-
Naval Sea Systems
Command's (NAVSEA's)
Engineering for Reduced
Maintenance (ERM) team
outlined Sept. 29 a new ther-
mal barrier materials initiative
designed to reduce maintenance
expenses, improve shipboard
quality of life and reduce ship-
board weight.
ERM is part of NAVSEA's
Naval Systems Engineering
Directorate team which seeks to
streamline costly and time-con-
suming maintenance procedures
in the fleet.
Thermal barriers, the insula-
tion on high temperature pipes
and equipment, protect Sailors
from serious burns and keep
heat from dissipating, improv-
ing operational efficiency.
Current insulation, commonly
called "lagging," consists of up
to six inches of a heavy, mortar-
like, calcium silicate compound
encased in fiberglass cloth. The
brittle material damages easily,
especially in high traffic spaces,
and creates dust and other debris
as it deteriorates. Replacing the
insulation is messy and labor-
intensive.
One of the new materials,
said Vernon Parrish, Program
Coordinator for NAVSEA's
Engineering for Reduced
Maintenance (ERM) Program,
is high temperature densified
polyimides, pre-formed rigid
foam installed in a two-piece,
"clam shell" sections and
encased in fiberglass cloth.
"The polyimides are easy to
install, create no dust and last
more than twice as long as cur-
rent materials," said Parrish.
The new insulation, he added,
was tested, installed and evaluat-
ed by the Naval Surface Warfare
Center, Carderock Division Ship
Systems Engineering Station, a
NAVSEA field activity.
Citing data gathered after the


June installation of high temper-
ature polyimides on the guided
missile destroyer USS Mahan
(DDG-72), Parrish projected
annual maintenance savings of
$5,000 per ship over 10 years.
Installing the new materials
throughout the fleet could save
$1.3 million over 10 years.
The thermal barrier initia-
tive is one of several programs
overseen by ERM. The program
explores ways to reduce ship-
board material and equipment
breakdowns by introducing
commercially available products


Time, $
and technologies to the fleet or
by re-engineering existing com-
ponents for greater durability
and efficiency.
"We see this initiative as a
real success story," Parrish
added, noting that fleetwide
installation of the new materi-
als is expected to start in fiscal
year 2009. "Anytime we can
significantly reduce the tedious,
time-consuming tasks Sailors
have to perform, we know we
are helping them focus on the
main task at hand."


Combat Zones


a way to earn extra money while
on their Southeast Asia tours,"
said DuBois. The Department
of Defense reopened the pro-
gram to Desert Storm troops in


1991, and extended it to troops
in Bosnia in 1996. The program
was further expanded in 1997,
2001 and 2003.

Commissaries Joins Partnership To 'Take



The Pledge' Against Childhood Obesity


From DeCA
Nearly 20 percent of children and
teens in families of Department of
Defense employees are considered
obese. Across the nation, the num-
bers are even more severe as one
child in three is overweight. These
numbers go beyond expanding waist-
lines: Overweight children and ado-
lescents are more likely to have risk
factors associated with cardiovascular
disease such as high blood pressure,
high cholesterol and Type 2 diabetes.
During National Children's Health
Month in October, the Defense
Commissary Agency has joined
TRICARE, Military OneSource, the
Army and Air Force Exchange Service,
and Health and Human Services to
ask the military community to "Take


the Pledge" against childhood obesi-
ty. The pledge is a Human Resources
and Services Administration initiative
that seeks to help families become
more aware of nutritional and lifestyle
changes that improve the health of
their children.
"As a nutritional leader in the mili-
tary community, DeCA is strongly
committed to supporting this campaign
to increase awareness and preven-
tion of childhood obesity," said DeCA
Director and Chief Executive Officer
Philip E. Sakowitz Jr. "Healthy eating
habits begin at home, and we want to
provide all the information we can to
help our customers make better meal
decisions for their children."
During October, the DeCA dietitian,
Army Reserve Lt. Col. Karen Hawkins


(formerly Maj. Karen Fauber), will
address ways to improve nutritional
choices and children's overall health in
her weekly column, Ask the Dietitian.
In addition, the agency continues to
reinforce healthy-eating practices for
the entire family as it engages in cus-
tomer outreach events across the mili-
tary.
"Many of us are concerned about our
children's health, especially with the
rate of childhood obesity at epidemic
proportions," Hawkins said. "We want
to work with families to help them
make informed decisions when they
are shopping in our commissaries."
The partnership is promoting the child-
hood obesity awareness campaign
throughout the month of October along
with Child Health Day on Oct. 6 under


the theme of "Healthy Youth for a
Healthy Future."
More than 12.5 million children and
adolescents (17.1 percent of people
ages 2 to 19 years) are overweight.
The percentage of children with weight
problems at DoD Dependents Schools-
Europe has doubled in the past four
years, according to a survey conducted
by the Center for Health Promotion
and Preventative Medicine-Europe.
Parents and caregivers are the primary
influencers for children and can be role
models for children, promoting healthy
lifestyles to prevent obesity. The
partnership which includes materi-
als from TRICARE, DeCA, Military
OneSource and AAFES will use mul-
tiple media, including the Pentagon
Channel, to create awareness of child-


hood obesity prevention within DoD
and encourage children to eat right and
exercise.
During October, anyone can visit
http://www.tricare.mil, http://www.
commissaries.com, http://www.mili-
taryonesource.com and http://www.
aafes.com as well as the HHS and
HRSA Web sites for articles, advice
columns, blogs and more about child-
hood obesity.

childhood overweight and obesity and

Food-Product Dating Mai


By Kay Blakley
DeCA home economist
Understanding how food-
product dating works might
not be a subject you've lost
any sleep over. But, if you're a
typical consumer, it has prob-
ably been a source of confusion
that's resulted in some perfectly
good food being thrown in the
garbage or poured down the
drain.
Many consumers incorrectly
assume that a date stamped on
a product's package is an expi-
ration date. They automatical-
ly throw it out once that date
arrives, thinking the food is
unsafe to use. This is not true.
Does federal law require
product dating?
Except for infant formula and
some baby food, product dat-
ing is not required by federal
regulations. Even so, you will
typically find what's called an
"open date" (use of a calendar
date as opposed to a code) on
perishable foods such as meat,
poultry, eggs and dairy prod-
ucts. This dating is done volun-
tarily by the manufacturer. It is
intended to help the store deter-
mine how long to display the
product for sale, and to help the
consumer know the time limit
to purchase or use the product at
its best quality. It is not a safety
date.
Types of dates and what
they mean
If a calendar date is shown
on a product, federal regula-
tions do require that a phrase
explaining its meaning be print-
ed immediately adjacent to the
date. These phrases are "sell-
by," "use-by" and "best if used
by (or before)."
*A "Sell-By" date tells the
store how long to display the
product for sale. You should buy
the product before this date.
*A "Best if Used By (or


Before)" date is a recommenda-
tion for best flavor or quality. It
is not a purchase or safety date.
*A "Use-By" date is the last
date recommended for use of
the product while at peak qual-
ity. This date is determined by
the manufacturer based on anal-
ysis of the product throughout
its shelf life.
Most asked about items
The items that cause most
concern among commissary
shoppers are exactly those
perishable items listed above
- dairy products, eggs, meat
and poultry. So, let's take a look
at each product or category of
products separately.
*Milk: A "sell-by" date is
normally stamped on every car-
ton. Make sure you purchase
the milk before this date. Take
it straight home and refriger-
ate immediately at 40 degrees
or lower. Don't leave it in the
trunk of your car while you
squeeze in a few more errands
on the way home, and don't let
it linger on the counter or table
during a meal. Pour the servings
you need and return the carton
to the refrigerator promptly.
Under optimum conditions,
milk should remain fresh up to
five days or longer beyond the
"sell-by" date.
*Yogurt: Most yogurts will
be stamped with either a "sell-
by" or a "best if used-by" date.
Store yogurts in the same man-
ner as fresh milk (refrigerated
at 40 degrees or lower) and use
by the "best if used-by" date for
highest quality.
After that date you might see
some separation of fluid in the
product, which will affect its
appearance, but this factor alone
is not an indicator of spoilage. It
may be perfectly fine once it is
stirred. Trust your own sense of
taste and smell, plus your per-
sonal knowledge of how well it


has been cared for since com-
ing to live at your house when
deciding to use it or toss it.
Yogurts stored under optimum
conditions can be expected to
be of good quality and fresh-
ness seven to ten days beyond
the "sell-by" date.
*Eggs: Egg cartons will nor-
mally be stamped with a "sell-
by" date. At home, refrigerate
the eggs in their original carton.
It is designed to keep the porous
shells from absorbing odors
from other foods, and to protect
the eggs from breaking.
Eggs have a very long shelf
life. Properly refrigerated, they
can be expected to maintain
reasonable quality for three to
five weeks beyond the "sell-by"
date.
*Meat and Poultry: Vacuum
packed meats sold in European


By Kay Blakley
DeCA home economist
The time crunch that sets in
when the autumn school bells
ring sends even the most orga-
nized families through the
drive-thru so many nights it's a
danger to both your health and
your pocket book! Here are
three tips to avoid that scene.
Combine shortcut ingredi-
ents like frozen vegetables, pre-
shredded cheeses, dried pastas,
packaged rice mixes and canned
beans with fresh whole-food
ingredients for a fast but healthy
entr6e.
Keep side dishes simple
- juicy wedges of fresh toma-
to, baby carrots, radishes and
cucumber alongside a simple
hot vegetable zapped in the
microwave is perfectly healthy.
Stock your recipe box with
one-dish entries that can be on


the table in 30 minutes or less.
Think you can make fajitas for
four in 20 minutes? Frozen stir-
fry peppers and a packet of faji-
ta marinade make it a breeze.
Ramen noodles are a real kid
favorite, but would you have
the nerve to serve it at a fam-
ily meal? Add some stir-fried
chicken breast and frozen veg-
etables for a tasty 20 minute
entr6e that weighs in at just over
300 calories and a respectable
400 milligrams of sodium per
serving.
Recipes for these week-night
wonders, plus family favorites
like Skillet Mac & Cheese, the
best Chili Mac I've ever tasted,
and a hearty Tuscan Bean Stew
are ready and waiting for you
in Kay's Kitchen on the web at
http://www.commissaries.com.

Children shouldn't have to check
their blood sugar and get insulin
shots every day. Or worry about
the threat of complications like
kidney failure, blindness and
heart disease. But the millions of
children with type 1 diabetes do.
With research and results, we're
moving faster toward a cure.

commissaries carry both a
"sell-by" and a "use-by" date.
Purchase these meats before the
"sell-by" date, keep them refrig-
erated properly and either use or
freeze by the "use-by" date.
Tray-packed fresh meats and
poultry, including turkey, plus
fresh rabbit and duck are nor-
mally stamped with a "use-by"
date. Recommendations for
handling and storage of vacu-
um packed meats also apply to
these products.
Once a perishable product
such as meat or poultry is fro-
zen, these dates become irrel-
evant because, according to
USDA experts, foods kept fro-
zen continuously (at 0 degrees

TRICARE Takes Aim At Childhood Obesity


From TRICARE
October is Children's Health
Month and TRICARE has
launched a new Web page at
http://www.tricare.mil/getfit
to promote a healthy lifestyle
partnership aimed at military
families. The new page serves
as campaign "headquarters."
The target? Childhood obe-
sity.
TRICARE is partnering
with the Defense Commissary
Agency (DeCA), Military
OneSource and the Army and


Air Force Exchange Service
(AAFES) to raise awareness of
childhood overweight and obe-
sity issues. The "Healthy Youth
for a Healthy Future" initiative
was launched by the United
States Department of Health
and Human Services (HHS).
Traditionally the first Monday
in October, Children's Health
Month includes National Child
Health Day on Oct. 6. This
year's focus is on childhood
obesity.
According to the U.S.


Surgeon General, obese chil-
dren are more likely than
children of normal weight to
become overweight or obese
adults. Overweight or obese
adults are more at risk for sev-
eral health problems, including
heart disease, type 2 diabetes,
stroke, several types of cancer,
and osteoarthritis.
The "Healthy Youth for a
Healthy Future" campaign sup-
ports the Surgeon General's
efforts to encourage children to
stay active, have healthy eat-


ing habits, and make healthy
choices.
The campaign is geared
toward ongoing efforts to raise
awareness of childhood obesity
and encourage children to eat
right and exercise, and informa-
tion about those efforts is avail-
able on the new page. From
articles and video messages,
to links, games and "widgets,"
there is something for users of
all ages at http://www.tricare.
mil/getfit. Partner initiatives
include a special childhood obe-


sity "Dietitian's Voice" column
at http://www.commissaries.
com. Military families can also
get additional information on
losing weight, getting in shape
and maintaining good health at
the DeCA Web site, including
advice-packed columns, reci-
pes and an open question and
answer forum.
AAFES is also encourag-
ing healthy food choices in its
food courts and plans to keep
the effort going in November
through special coupon offers in


shopper circulars.
Resources to better educate
and assist parents in the battle
against obesity are available on
http://www.militaryonesource.
com. Also visit http://www.
surgeongeneral.gov/obesity-
prevention/ to get information
and "Take the Pledge" to help
prevent childhood obesity. For

TRICARE Blog Is Just What The Doctor Ordered


From TRICARE
With the Military Health
System (MHS) increas-
ingly engaging in "Web 2.0,"
TRICARE launched a blog
at http://www.health.mil/

Maj. Gen. Elder Granger,
deputy director, TRICARE
Management Activity (TMA).
The launch builds on the Web

blog at http://www.health.

BlogTalkRadio show "Dot Mil

The inaugural blog, "Just

Granger hasn't shied away from
controversy, tackling tough top-


TRICARE Offers


From TRICARE
TRICARE now offers pri-
mary caregivers of Active Duty
Service Members (ADSMs)
much needed rest, relief and
reprieve thanks to section 1633
of the 2008 National Defense
Authorization Act (NDAA).
The respite benefit specifi-
cally helps homebound ADSMs
who need frequent help from
their primary caregiver.
It is important to know that


"homebound" members are ser-
vice members whose conditions
or injuries make them unable
to leave home without taxing
effort. "Frequent" means that
service members need more
than two interventions dur-
ing the eight-hour period per
day that the primary caregiver
would normally be sleeping.
To provide the best possible
help and respite for caregivers,
this benefit will provide a maxi-


ics such as autism and the issues
surrounding benefit delivery
in the Philippines. Granger
said he hopes that beneficia-
ries will take advantage of the
interactive feature that allows
readers to post comments.
"We're constantly seeking new
avenues to communicate and
interact with beneficiaries," said
Granger. "Blogging is a 21st

"What this benefit does is

Elder Granger, deputy direc-

bound patients have special

The TRICARE blog is intend-
ed to address current issues,
beneficiaries concerns and keep
visitors up-to-date on the hap-
penings at TRICARE. The site
will clearly increase interaction
with beneficiaries as Granger


continues to address hot topics.
"One of the greatest goals
of the MHS is to communi-
cate with better transparency,"
Granger said. "Our new blog
site is 'just what the doctor
ordered' to communicate with
others in the MHS and all those
who are served by TRICARE."
Current plans call for the
fledgling blog to feature a new

"TRICARE knows that life
doesn't stop when a service
member is injured. Most of the
time it just speeds up," said
Granger. "TRICARE wants to
help the caregivers who help
our service members. That's
why this benefit is retroactive
to Jan. 1, 2008, and has no cost
shares or co-pays."
ADSMs, or their legal repre-


sentatives, can submit receipts
for reimbursement of respite
care services that were pro-
vided after Jan. 1, 2008, by a
