The ceremony is held each year in Jacksonville, recognizing Vietnam veterans for the sacrifices they made. More than 150
Vietnam Veterans and their families were be honored during a ceremony led by Congressman Ander Crenshaw, R-Fla., on board
Naval Station Mayport on Nov. 7. The observance included a performance by Navy Band Southeast and a 21-gun salute by the
Navy Munitions Command Detachment Mayport. Rear Adm. Michael Vitale, Commander, Navy Region Southeast, assisted
Congressman Crenshaw with the presentations. Capt. Aaron Bowman, Commanding Officer of Naval Station Mayport, served as
Master of Ceremonies.

CNO Releases


2009 Guidance
By MC2(SW)


Rebekah Blowers
( ... 'of Naval Operations Public


The Chief of Naval
Operations (CNO), Adm.
Gary Roughead, released his
Guidance for 2009 on Nov. 5,
2008.
CNO's Guidance (CNOG)
reaffirms his vision, mission,
guiding principles and focus
areas refining the scope of his
intentions and how they will be
measured in 2009 and reviews
the accomplishments of the
Navy over the past year.
"Over the past year, we have
implemented our Maritime
Strategy around the world.
This year's Guidance will high-
light those accomplishments as
well as expand on the progress
we need to continue to make
to remain a dominant force,"
Roughead said.
CNO said that one of last
year's accomplishments was
developing a Navy Ethos, a
tangible statement of values
integral to the Navy's mission
accomplishment.
"It distinguishes those of us
who serve in the Navy, active
and reserve Sailors and Navy
civilians, regardless of unit,
command or community,"
Roughead said.
The CNOG reinstates CNO's
three focus areas of building the
future force, maintaining warf-
ighting readiness, and devel-
oping and supporting Sailors,
Navy civilians, and their fami-
lies. He said over the past year
the Navy has made significant
progress in those areas, setting
the stage for continued achieve-
ments in 2009.
Some of those achievements
include: Deploying of the first
guided missile submarines, USS
Ohio (SSGN 726) and USS
Florida (SSGN 728), in less
than six years from the start of
their conversion from strategic
service; Embarking nongovern-
mental organizations and inter-
national partners aboard Navy
hospital and amphibious ships
to provide humanitarian assis-
tance to local populations, treat-
ing more than 320,000 patients
in Southeast Asia, South
America, and Africa; and transi-
tioning many short-notice, mid-
tour, temporary-duty individual


CNO Podcast
on Guidance,

The Chief of Naval
Operations (CNO) released
a podcast Nov. 6 during
which he explained his
Guidance for 2009 and the
Navy Ethos.
Adm. Gary Roughead,
CNO, said the purpose
of this year's Guidance is
to focus the attention of
the Navy on things that
are going to be important
as Sailors carry out the
Maritime Strategy. The
2009 Guidance reaffirms
the vision, mission, guid-
ing principles and focus
areas articulated in the 2008
Guidance and provides
additional context for the 18
intentions.
"The direction that I saw
the Navy needing to go
in 2008 is the same direc-
tion where we must go in
2009. It's to carry out our
maritime strategy: to per-
form and be competent in

Health Promo


Can Help You


'Butt 0
From Health Promotion by the Ocean
Could this be the first day
of a life without tobacco?
Are you thinking about quit-
ting smoking or using tobac-
co products but are not sure if
you're ready to take the plunge?
Maybe the Great American
Smokeout is for you. It's an
opportunity to join with literally
millions of other smokers and
other tobacco users in saying
"no thanks" to tobacco products
for 24 hours.
A Day to "Butt Out"
The Great American
Smokeout traditionally takes
place on the third Thurday in
November. The date this year
falls on Nov. 20. The concept
dates from the early '70s when
Lynn Smith, publisher of the
Monticello Times of Minnesota,
announced the first observance
and called it "D Day." The idea
caught on in state after state
until in 1977, it went nation-
wide under the sponsorship of
the American Cancer Society.


ut'
If past Smokeouts are any indi-
cation, as many as one-third of
the nation's 45 million smokers
could be taking the day off from
smoking.
The Rules of the Game
The rules are simple. You
just quit using tobacco prod-
ucts for the 24 hours of the
Smokeout. The wonderful
thing is that you won't be alone;
you can swap advice, jokes and
groans with the other "quit-
ters," non-tobacco users and
Naval Branch Health Clinic's
Health Promotion Staff and the
American Cancer Society will
be cheering you on. Even if
you don't go on to quit perma-
nently, you will have learned
that you can quit for a day and
that many others around you are
taking the step, too.

at 270-5251 for information on
how you can participate.

2 THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, November 13, 2008


By Lt. Rickey L Bennett
Spiritual Fitness Division Southeast
Early on a Monday morning,
my phone rings. "Mr. Bennett,
this is the White House calling.
Please hold for the president of
the United States."
"Is this a joke?" I ask, but
another voice begins: "Rickey,
this is the president. I've got
some huge decisions to make
this week, both domestically
and internationally. Would you
pray that I'd have wisdom so
that my decisions foster the
greatest long-term good in our
country and across the world?"
I hang up, stunned.
Sound far-fetched? In one
respect it is. Neither the presi-
dent of the United States nor
any other world leader has ever
called me to request prayer, and
I'm pretty sure they never will.
But they don't need to. God
already has. Paul exhorts us, in
1 Timothy, to pray "for kings
and all others who are in author-
ity, so that we can live in peace
and quietness, in godliness and
dignity." He adds that praying
for officials-including the ones
we didn't vote for-pleases God.


Because God is sovereign,
and the whole earth is under his
control, we should pray con-
fidently for those in authority.
He's the Lord of history, past,
present, and future. Those in
positions of leadership rule at
his command. This includes
immoral and dictatorial leaders.
God also guides the decisions
of political leaders. Proverbs
21:1 reminds us that "the king's
heart is like a stream of water
directed by the Lord; he turns it
wherever he pleases." By call-
ing us to intercede on behalf of
leaders and the political events
surrounding them, God invites
us to turn his hand as he directs
their hearts.
In the summer of 1989, a
teacher from a Christian school
visited East Berlin. Seeing
the Berlin Wall and consider-
ing the oppressive system of
government it symbolized
overwhelmed her. Returning
to school that September, she
urged her fifth graders to pray
daily for the wall to come down.
Their prayers joined those of
countless others. Within months
the wall came down, beginning

Friday take them to Central

and Saturdays find them in East
Asia. On Sundays they pray for
global leaders who influence
many nations in regional group-
ings, the United Nations, or the
Vatican.
God seldom works in his-
tory and in political leaders
as quickly as we would like.
Praying for societal peace isn't
an end in itself. The growth of
God's kingdom is the goal. The
early church endured centuries
of persecution. But this was
also the Pax Romana era, whose
favorable conditions allowed
the gospel to advance. By 311
A.D., the believers' faithful
prayers for their rulers resulted
in the emperor requesting their
prayers!
The Cold War decades illus-
trate the importance of keeping
a long-term perspective as we
pray. Fear of a nuclear holo-


caust fueled fervent prayer. In
the early 1980s it seemed that
U.S. President Ronald Reagan's
actions against the USSR would
provoke the dreaded attack.
Were our prayers falling on
deaf ears? Now, 25 years later,
Reagan and his Soviet coun-
terpart, Mikhail Gorbachev, are
credited with ending the Cold
War and dismantling Soviet
Communism. God was work-
ing to answer our prayer even
as circumstances indicated oth-
erwise. And he has called us
to join him in shaping history
through our prayers.
Please join me in praying
for this critical point in histo-
ry as the mantle of leadership
passes from President Bush to
President Elect Obama. If you
would like to commit to praying
for this transitional time as well
as the full duration of the next
administration to succeed then
perhaps you can join the presi-
dential prayer team by visiting

Homefront in Focus


By Beth Wilson
Military Spouse Contributor
During Operation Dessert
Shield a new family arrived at
my church. A lovely auburn-
haired woman and her four chil-
dren entered the church togeth-
er. At first glance I wondered if
perhaps she was a single mom.
In the weeks that followed I
noticed things about this woman
and her four children.
I noticed that she had a sys-
tem to get all four children into
their seats and settled. She had
a plan for getting them to their
children's ministry classes at the
appointed time in our service
and still made it back before the
sermon started. I saw how eas-
ily she made friends, took note


of her cheerfulness, observed
what a champion she was for
her children and how fervently
she prayed.
I noticed the children, too,
had qualities about them. They
seemed more 'independent',
able to grasp the hand of a
younger sibling and lead them
to their classroom. They seemed
more comfortable talking with
new children and adults. I
thought this woman was "super
mom" to be so together.
During our Sunday morn-
ing service, two weeks after
Dessert Storm started, our pas-
tor asked if there were prayer
requests. Super-mom stood and
asked for prayer for her hus-
band, an infantryman serving in


Kuwait. Her voice cracked as
she choked back emotions that
sought to overwhelm her.
This was my first experi-
ence with a military family.
Our church rallied around her
and the children to offer what
support we could. Through
these efforts I discovered her
world was very different from
my own. I was the master of
my life, the DoD was master
of hers. The challenges I faced
were nothing compared to those
she faced as the wife of a sol-
dier.
November is Military Family
Appreciation Month. I'm grate-
ful an entire month is estab-
lished to recognize the unique
service of those who never


raised their hand to take an oath,
yet serve our great nation with
sacrifice and challenges. This
month we honor those who also
serve, without uniforms or med-
als, the Military Family.
Your contribution to the
defense of our nation is not
insignificant. ADM M.G.
Mullen stated that while "we
recruit a sailor, we retain a fam-
ily." In his CNO Guidance for
2006 the second of his guiding
principles, Dedication to our
People, states, "Our success in
defense of this nation depends
upon the men and women of the
United States Navy... and their
families. Personal and Family
readiness are vital to combat
readiness."


Many of our civilian family
and friends don't often under-
stand or appreciate the lifestyle
and challenge of the military
family. They are jealous of our
30-days-paid-leave without
understanding the challenge of
deployment and separation. My
ten-year-old twin nieces think it
is 'so cool' to move all the time.
Yes, you can have their address
to set them straight better
yet, let your children set them
straight.
This month is full of spe-
cials and events throughout the
region for you as service mem-
bers and families to enjoy. Be
sure to check out MWR's calen-
dar of events and don't miss the
opportunities.


From Martha Washington, to
the woman in my church to my
next door neighbor; the family
has always played a vital role
in the defense of our nation. We
share in the sacrifice and the
commitment of military ser-
vice. Thank you for standing
by your service member. Thank
you for your strength and dedi-
cation and sharing in the oath
they took. You continue to be
my hero.

Take Care This Heating Season


From Naval . i )ort Fire &
Emergency Services Fire Prevention
Office
The below information is
passed on by Naval Station
Mayport Fire & Emergency
Services Fire Prevention Office
with hopes of providing your
families with a happy and safe
2008 holiday season:
NFPA reports that they are
seeing a decline in home heat-
ing fires since 1980, but heat-
ing fires are still the "leading"
cause of home fires and home
fire deaths. In fact one out of
every six home fires are due to
heating equipment.
NFPA's report on home fires
reported that heating equipment
caused more than 62,000 home
fires, 670 deaths, and 1,550
injuries in 2005 and also caused
more than $900 million in prop-
erty damage.
The fear this season is that
due to the economy, people will
use more dangerous ways to
heat their homes due to their
inability to pay for higher ener-
gy costs.
Of major concern is an

increase use of space heaters,
which NFPA's research showed
that space heaters account for
one-third of home related heat-
ing fires and three-fourths of
home heating fire deaths.
The leading factor is that peo-
ple place these devices too close
to items that can easily burn,
and are used by people unfamil-
iar with them. Another major
concern by NFPA is that people
will rely more on fireplaces and
woodstoves (yes, these are still
around and in use).
The problem with these is that
individuals do not take adequate
precautions to make sure that
they are using them properly
and safely.
If you have a fireplace,
have it inspected and cleaned
BEFORE you use it. According
to NFPA's study, chimneys and
chimney connectors accounted
for the largest share of home
heating fires and that "failure to
clean" accounted for two-thirds
of those fires.
Another concern that NFPA
has is dealing with the dangers
of carbon monoxide poisoning


from devices that are not vented
properly or have vents blocked
by snow, leaf or other types of
debris.
Without proper open vents,
unsafe levels of this toxic
(remember this gas is odorless,
colorless, and tasteless) gas can
build up in homes and kill.
One last concern, especial-
ly here at NS Mayport, is the
use and operation of outdoor
propane heaters. These units
are somewhat tall in height and
operate off of a 20 lb propane
cylinder.
These heaters are strictly pro-
hibited from indoor use. When
operating them outdoors, use
common sense. Before oper-
ating them for the first time,
assure that all connections are
in good working order, the pro-
pane tank hose connection is
free of leaks and pliable.
One can mix up a soapy
water solution and pour onto
hose connections to assure that
the hose and connections have
no leaks.
Assure that they are oper-
ated on a firm, level surface to


maintain stability and maintain
a clear (minimum of three feet
circumference) area free of
debris that can easily catch on
fire (i.e., leaves, trash, clothing,
etc.).
This also includes maintain-
ing a minimum of three-foot
clearance from all structures
and vehicles as well.

tion, contact the Fire Prevention
Office at 270-7440 ext.1318,

Commands from Naval
Station Mayport visited several
Jacksonville area elementary
schools last week to participate
in Veterans Day remembrance
ceremonies. HSL-48 continued
the annual tradition of a flyover
and show-and-tell at Alimicani
Elementary School's ceremo-
ny on Nov. 7. The helicopter
landed in the school's field and
the aircrew talked with classes
about the helicopter and their
jobs in the Navy for the most of
the day.


San Pablo Elementary School
held their annual Veteran's Day
program on Wednesday, Nov.
5. Students performed patriotic
songs for the audience, with the
highlight of the show being two
helicopters from HSL-40 flying
over the guests and perform-
ers in the school's courtyard.
Afterwards, Sailors went to the
classrooms to talk to the stu-
dents and answer questions.
Representatives from Naval
Station Mayport and USS
Carney also participated in cere-
monies at Lone Star Elementary


and Beaches School in Neptune
Beach, respectively.
"It was really great being
able to talk to the kids about
our experiences in the Navy,"
said Cryptologic Technician
Collection 2nd Class Jaymie
Brown from NS Mayport. "It's
not every day that you get to sit
down with them and talk about
the sacrifices of all the veter-
ans that have served before us.
I was honored to be able to par-
ticipate in the event."

4th Fleet Hosts UNITAS Planni

Maritime representatives
from eleven countries gathered
in Mayport for the UNITAS
Gold 2009 Initial Planning
Conference Nov. 3-7.
U.S. Naval Forces Southern
Command (NAVSO)/ U.S. 4th
Fleet hosted the conference
to plan for UNITAS 50-09,
the 50th iteration of the annual
multi-national maritime exer-
cise series.
"2009 marks the 50th itera-
tion of the UNITAS exercises,
in which the U.S. Navy and
our partner nation navies train
together to enhance interoper-
ability and Theater Security
Cooperation (TSC)," said
Rear Adm. Joseph D. Kernan,
NAVSO/4th Fleet Commander.
"This exercise, planned with
a multitude of unique training
venues, offers all of the partici-
pating nations an opportunity to
enhance a cooperative maritime
strategy that is in all of our best
interests."
"We, as well as the City of
Jacksonville, are excited to be
able to host the UNITAS Gold
celebration here and we wel-
come all of our visiting part-
ner nations to Mayport," added
Keman.

to begin in late April 2009 off
the coast of Mayport with par-
ticipants from Argentina, Brazil,
Canada, Chile, Colombia,


Ecuador, France, Germany,
Mexico, Peru, and the United
States.
The purpose of the confer-


ence was to define the sched-
ule of events, topics, activities,
and delegate responsibilities
in support of UNITAS Gold.

The training exercises focus
on logistics, communications,
combat doctrines, and other
inter-service interests between
the partner nations.
"It's very important (for us)
to be here, because you can see
each other and the eyes of our
friends and to specify all the
details of this huge operation,
UNITAS Gold," said Brazilian
Navy Rear Adm. Carlos Alberto
Guimaraes De Almeida e
Albuquerque, the Brazilian
Navy Division 2 Commanding
Officer. "It's very important
for the friendly ships to work
together. This operation is
very important in this aspect to
increase interoperability, and
to standardize the procedures
among us and of course, to
increase the friendship among
the countries, mainly among
men of the sea, the Sailors."
The annual UNITAS exercise
series, which consists of two
phases-Atlantic and Pacific,
supports the U.S. Maritime
Strategy, by bringing part-
ner nation navies together to
improve interoperability and
build working relationships
at sea. However, for UNITAS
Gold 2009, both phases will be
combined into one two-week
exercise.
During the week's events,
Kernan hosted several face-to-


ference
face meetings with maritime
representatives from partner
nation countries at NAVSO/4h
Fleet Headquarters in Mayport.
Kernan met with Guimaraes, as
well as Argentine Navy Rear
Adm. Jose Luis Perez Varela, the
Naval Attach6 to the Argentine
Embassy in Washington, D.C.,
and Uruguayan Navy Rear
Adm. Federico Oscar Lebel

Simpson Carries On CNT Deployment Mission


From USS Simpson
While most of the focus of
the American Military has shift-
ed to the Middle East, the U.S.
Navy continues to carry out an
important mission in the Eastern
Pacific and Caribbean.
This mission involves two
different, yet, equally impor-
tant operations: Counter-
Narco Terrorism (CNT)
operations, interdicting the
flow of drugs from Central
America, South America, and
the Caribbean, and Theater
Security Cooperation (TSC)
which involves reaffirming the
United States'commitment to
the region's security through
engagement with our partner
nations.
USS Simpson (FFG 56),
an Oliver Hazard Perry Class
Frigate home ported out of
Mayport, Florida, has been one
of the ships carrying out these
very important missions.
Simpson, a part of DESRON
14 whose ships frequently
deploy to this region, conducted
a successful CNT deployment
to the Eastern Pacific from
October 2007-April 2008 and is
scheduled to return to the region
for a similar deployment within
the next year.
During this time period
Simpson had five major inter-
dictions resulting in the capture
of 16 tons of cocaine, worth
over $500 million, and the
apprehension of fifteen narco-
terrorists.


Argentine Navy Rear
Adm. Jose Luis Perez
Varela, Naval Attache to
the Argentine Embassy
greets Rear Adm. Joseph
D. Kernan, Commander,
U.S. Naval Forces
Southern Command
(NAVSO)/ U.S. 4th Fleet
after arriving at NAVSO/
4th Fleet Headquarters
in Mayport Nov. 4 for
an orientation meet-
ing with Kernan. Perez
was in Mayport for the
UNITAS Gold 2009 Initial
Planning Conference Nov.
3-7. NAVSO/4th Fleet
hosted the conference,
where maritime represen-
tatives from eleven coun-
tries planned UNITAS
50-09, the 50th iteration of
the annual multi-national
maritime exercise series.


Two of these interdictions
involved Self-Propelled Semi-
Submersibles (SPSS), crudely
made semi-submarines that sit
about 12-18 inches above the
surface making them virtually
immune to detection. They are
secretly constructed in the man-
groves of South America and
can carry upwards of 9 tons of
cocaine.
The introduction of these ves-
sels into drug running is evi-
dence of successful efforts by
counter-drug units in past years,
but the several million spent on
their construction demonstrates
the extraordinary amount of
money that stands to be gained
by drug organizations.
One of Simpson's interdic-
tions was more of a diplomat-
ic than a traditional victory.
Simpson boarded a small fish-
ing vessel which had an enor-
mous amount of fuel stored
onboard, evidence that this ves-
sel was serving as a Logistical
Support Vessel (LSV) which
provide fuel and security to
go-fasts (high velocity drug
trafficking vessels) smuggling
cocaine between South America
and Central America.
In the past, unless evidence of
drugs was discovered the crew
onboard could not be detained.
With laws finally adapting to
meet the new strategies of drug
traffickers, Simpson was given
permission to detain the crew of
the LSV and turn them over for
prosecution.


Laws have also been changed
so that crews of SPSS's can be
prosecuted regardless of the
recovery of the narcotics since
the vessels are easily scuttled
upon detection. Part of the rea-
soning behind this law change is
that the covert vessels serve no
legitimate commercial purpose
and are used specifically for the
smuggling of contraband.
The mission of CNT
Operations has grown in signifi-
cance in past years as the focus
of the war on terrorism has wid-
ened its scope.
Not only do narcotics create
problems of crime and violence
domestically, but they also
fund terrorist activities abroad,
including the Revolutionary
Armed Forces of Colombia
(FARC) and the National
Liberation Army (ELN) in
Colombia, left wing terrorist
organizations, as well as the
United Self-Defense Forces of
Colombia (AUC), a paramili-
tary terrorist organization that
espouses to protect supporters
from insurgents in the nation.
All of these terrorist groups
are designated as Transnational
Terrorist Organizations by
the United States, the United
Nations, and the European
Union.
One unique aspect of CNT
operations is that it has tangible
results that can be measured in
weight and money. Although
the best way to fight the war on
drugs continues to be debated,


each interdiction is still a clear
victory for America and a blow
to these terrorist organizations.
The money made in traffick-
ing drugs goes directly into
funding these organizations
terrorist activities: mass mur-
ders, the purchase of weapons,
ammunitions, and land mines,
the planting of land mines, the
forced conscription of chil-
dren, kidnapping, and extor-
tion. There are more than 3,000
deaths per year in Colombia due
to land mines (more then any
other country) bought by the
money earned trafficking drugs.
The FARC held 3 U.S. gov-
ernment contractors in captivity
for more than five years until
they were heroically rescued by
the Colombian military in July
2008. At the time of their res-
cue, they were held in captiv-
ity longer then any other U.S.
citizen. The efforts of the U.S.
military and Coast Guard has
kept multiple billions of dol-
lars in illegal drug revenue out
of the hands of these terrorists'
organizations.
The second prong of Ship's
mission to this region, Theater
Security Cooperation, has like-
wise grown in importance.
Hugo Chavez, the president of
Venezuela has clearly spread
Anti-American sentiment to the
region. Ecuador, Bolivia, and
Nicaragua have all elected pres-
idents that share in President
Chavez's Anti-American senti-
ment. It is becoming evident


that America is losing much of
the influence it once exercised
over this region.
In an effort to counter this
spreading anti-American sen-
timent, the United States has
increased its Theater Security
Cooperation (TSC) efforts. An
excellent example of this was
demonstrated when Simpson
participated in a port visit to St.
Lucia this past July in which
the main focus was Theater
Security Cooperation.
These port visits involve
interaction with the host nation
on multiple fronts. Community
Relations Projects (COMREL)
are one aspect of TSC and an
integral part of demonstrating
America's commitment to the
region.
Projects that sailors onboard
Simpson setup during the
Ship's time in St. Lucia includ-
ed donations to Red Cross and
Salvation Army and repair-
ing a school while interacting
with the students and teach-
ing them about the Navy's role
in the region. Another critical
part of TSC is Subject Matter
Expert Exchanges in which the
two nations military and police
exchange knowledge and expe-
rience on different areas appli-
cable to their military and law
enforcement activities.
A diversity of subjects was
touched upon during the St.
Lucia visit to include firefight-
ing, weapons maintenance, die-
sel and hull repair, and medical


techniques. This is a mutually
beneficial process that improves
the effectiveness of both mili-
taries as well as strengthens the
bond of cooperation.
The highlight of Simpson's
visit to St. Lucia was a Fourth
of July celebration in which the
Ship hosted the U. S Ambassador
and key members of St. Lucia's
government and community to
include the Saint Lucian Head
of State, Cabinet, and many
members of both the St. Lucian
Senate and Congress.
Simpson worked closely
with the Embassy to put on the
reception. It was an opportunity
to give the host nation an under-
standing of America's commit-
ment to the region and to foster
ties in a friendly atmosphere.
Both CNT operations and
TSC engagements are integral
parts of fighting the war on ter-
ror in the Western Hemisphere
and showing a strong commit-
ment to our allies in the region.
CNT operations helps to
remove an important source of
funds for terrorist organizations
in the America's while TSC
engagements work to build ties
between the U.S. and our part-
ner nations that are of strategic
importance in fighting the glob-
al war on terrorism.
USS Simpson continues to
proudly serve this mission and
this great nation of ours.

Fourth Fleet Commander Gives Awards


To Sailors Aboard USS Mclnerney


By MC3 Alan Gragg
U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/
U.S. 4th Fleet Public. ;-
USS McInerney (FFG 8)
hosted two flag visitors Nov.
5, relating to the ship's recent
counter illicit trafficking deploy-
ment to Latin America.
Rear Adm. Joseph D. Keman,
Commander, U.S. Naval Forces
Southern Command (NAVSO)/
U.S. 4th Fleet came aboard
in the morning to present
McInerney Sailors with end-of-
deployment awards and thank
them for their efforts during the
deployment.
The award presentation
highlighted McInerney's
involvement with the interdic-
tion of a Self Propelled Semi-
Submersible (SPSS) vessel
carrying seven tons of cocaine
Sept. 13.
"A SPSS is very difficult to
detect and track due to its low
profile in the water; the deck of
the vessel is nearly awash while
transiting, giving it a very dif-
ficult detection signature," said
Kernan. "The combined team
of Patrol Squadron (VP) 26,
McInerney and the U.S. Coast
Guard did a great job of discov-
ering, tracking, and apprehend-
ing the vessel and its cargo."
"The success was in large
part due to our assets remaining
undetected in their approach to
Podcast
talked about of deterrence,
being a forward Navy, being
able to provide power projec-
tion and exercise sea control
and also to be able to conduct
humanitarian assistance/disaster
response and maritime securi-
ty," Roughead said.
"The Guidance just puts a lit-
tle more detail on it and sets the
course for 2009."
CNO also discussed the


the SPSS," added Kernan. "It
is important that we capture the
tactical lessons from this mis-
sion and continue to refine the
procedures that afford success
in apprehensions of this nature.
They will no doubt adapt their
procedures and we must remain
flexible as well, to continue to
effectively illicit counter drug
trafficking."
McInerney's crew was in the
fifth month of their six month
deployment the night of the
SPSS bust.
"This was not the first time
that we had planned for, or
practiced and rehearsed this
mission," said McInerney
Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Keith Wheeler. "When the time
came to do it, everybody was
ready. There is a dedication in a
U.S. Navy Sailor that is always
there, and it really made the dif-
ference that night to be success-
ful."
The second flag visit of the
day took place when Rear Adm.
Samuel Perez, Deputy Director,
Joint Inter Agency Task Force
South (JIATF-S) and other
senior JIATF-S staff members
visited McInerney for lunch
aboard the ship.
"It was great to host Admiral
Perez as well," said Wheeler.
"We don't always have the
opportunity to host so many


development of Navy Ethos and
how it is the service's overarch-
ing set of beliefs, embracing
Navy core values and comple-
menting the Sailor's Creed,
community-specific creeds and
the civilian oath of office.
"The Navy Ethos is who we
are. It describes our charac-
ter. It describes our values. It
describes what we believe. And
as a Navy it captures our char-


distinguished guests, especially
all in one day. The Sailors on
McInerney really enjoyed being
eye-to-eye with the folks they
worked so hard for during the
deployment."
During the deployment,
McInerney conducted counter-
illicit trafficking operations for
JIATF-S, under the operational
control of NAVSO/4th Fleet.
After a brief tour of the ship
and lunch with McInerney's
wardroom members, Perez met
with Kernan at NAVSO/4th
Fleet Headquarters in Mayport.
JIATF-S and NAVSO/4th
Fleet are component commands
of U.S. Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM). JIATF-S over-
sees counter-illicit traffick-
ing operations, while NAVSO
oversees maritime operations
throughout Latin America,
including exercises and deploy-
ments, counter illicit trafficking
support, and TSC events.
U.S. 4th Fleet is the num-
bered fleet assigned to NAVSO
exercising operational control
of U.S. Navy units temporally
operating in the SOUTHCOM
area of focus, which encom-
passes the Caribbean, Central
and South America and sur-
rounding waters.

USS Hue City Support


Group For Families


By Mary Grace
Dziewiatkowski
USS Hue C, y FRG Secretary
USS Hue City's Family
Readiness Group (FRG)
announces its recently elected
board for the new fiscal year.
For 2009, Cynthia Ramirez
will serve as president. She will
be assisted by Karrie Davis as
vice president, Jade Rouzeau
as treasurer, and Mary Grace
Dziewiatkowski as the FRG
secretary.
As Hue City concludes its
ship's readiness availabil-
ity (SRA) period, the crew will
soon begin its work-ups for the
next deployment. Work-ups
can be equally as challenging


and stressful for families as a
deployment, so all Hue City
families are encouraged to
attend an FRG meeting to meet
other ship families and form a
network of support.
Hue City FRG meetings
are held at the USO off-base
on Mayport Road on the third
Wednesday of each month at 6
p.m. Most meetings are potluck
dinners, and babysitting is avail-
able at a minimum charge.
On occasion, speakers from
offices such as Fleet and Family
Services will visit, and at almost
all meetings, the ship's ombuds-
man, Debbie Pound, will be
available with updates on the
ship and its schedule.


Come and find out about your
command events, join in FRG
fundraising, and enjoy social
gatherings such as the upcom-
ing Hue City Holiday Party.
Learn the resources that are
available to you as a military
family and enjoy meeting new
friends that will support you as
your Sailor goes to sea. If you
would like to be included on the
e-mail list, please contact the
FRG board at huecityfrg66@
gmail.com. We can't wait to
meet you!
A command holiday party
will be held the evening of
Thursday, Dec. 11 at the Sea
Turtle Inn in Neptune Beach.
More details TBA.

HSL-44



Georgii

By Lt. Adam S. Johnson
HSL-44 Detachment 3
For the first time since the
recent heightened conflict
between Russia and Georgia, an
HSL detachment has patrolled
the Black Sea.
Onboard USS Mason (DDG
87), the Mayport-based HSL-
44 Detachment Three "The
Saviors" consisting of two
armed helicopters, flew sup-
port missions in this tumultuous
region. The turmoil between the
ex-Soviet partners called for an
increased international presence
to show support to the region,
and specifically to the pro-dem-
ocratic nation of Georgia.
While in the Black Sea, USS
Mason graciously showed
their support of the Georgian
Military by embarking a group
of Georgian Coast Guard
Officers to give them the unique
experience of what it is like to
be a part of the crew of a U.S.
Warship.
For nearly seven days, the
Georgian Officers were induct-
ed into almost all aspects of life
as a U.S. Navy Sailor. They ate
their meals with the wardroom,
stood watch on the bridge,
trained with the Visit, Board,
Search and Seizure (VBSS)
team, and leisurely watched
movies during their free time.
However, if you were to ask
them what their favorite part of
the entire experience was, they
would confidently point to their
Detachment Three patches and
tell you the ride in the helicop-
ter.
The Saviors took the
Georgian officers under their
rotor blades and showed them
a completely different side
of being on a guided missile
destroyer. With special approv-
al from Commander, U.S. Naval
Forces Europe, the guests had
two days with the Saviors, cul-


SSupports


a In Black Sea


minating in orientation flights
over the waters they protect.
On the first day, they were
given a walk through of a full
static display of the mighty
SH-60B Seahawk where they
learned of its capabilities to
hunt submarines, warships, and
even pirates and drug runners.
Lead by Chief Aviation
Electrician's Mate (AW) Greg
Lowery and the flight deck crew
of Aviation Machinist's Mate
3rd Class(AW) Alex Bischoff,
Aviation Structural Mechanic 3rd
Class (AW) Carlos Smiley and
Aviation Machinist's Mate 3rd
Class (AW) Rhandie Thompson,
they were then given a demon-
stration of Helicopter In-flight
Refueling (HIFR) and Vertical
Replenishment (VERTREP)
as well as day and night flight
deck landing qualifications to
include the use of night vision
devices.
On the second day, they
experienced the Seahawk
and its capabilities first hand.
They were each given about
an hour and half of flight time
in the cabin where the crew-
man, Aviation Warfare Systems
Operator 1st Class (AW) Edward
Shires, demonstrated his role as
a crewmember and the pilots,
Lt. Cmdr. Lonnie Appleget and
Lt. Cory Fenton, demonstrated
the flight characteristics of the
Seahawk.
It was easy to see the impres-
sion that was made on them
when they each got out of the
helicopter at the end of their
flight with an exuberant smile
and a big "thumbs-up."
After disembarking the
Georgians off the coast of Poti,
Georgia, USS Mason sailed
back across the Black Sea
and south through the Turkish
Straits for the first port call of
their seven-month deployment.
While the crew had seen


the coasts of countries such as
Spain, Morocco, Italy, Turkey,
Bulgaria, and Georgia, it had
only been from a distance, until
now. Mason anchored in the
middle of the Turkish Straits,
which put you right in between
the European and Asian conti-
nents. Connected only by a few
bridges, Turkey joins two very
different parts of the world into
one.
The mixture of culture is like
no other in the world. Some
parts may remind someone
of downtown Chicago where
others take you back in time
to when Constantine ruled the
Roman Empire and Istanbul
was the capital.
For dinner, one can dine at
McDonalds or at Sultana's for
authentic Turkish cuisine and
belly dancing or anything in
between. Many chose to shop
at the Grand Bazaar where one
could barter with local ven-
dors to get a steal of a deal on
a leather jacket or a set of hand
crafted ceramics, silver, or rugs.
And for those who like to see
history, the Aya Sofya is on
par with the sights of Ancient
Rome.
The Black Sea was an eye-
opening experience for many
of the Mason's crew and the
embarked Saviors.
Capt. Mamuka Dumbadze
of Republic of Georgia said,
"On Mason, we have received
very good training and practi-
cal experience in many differ-
ent areas. This is important not
only for the Georgian Coast
Guard but for all of Georgia."
That sentiment, which is
shared by anyone who spent
as little as a couple of min-
utes speaking with either of
the Georgians, speaks volumes
for the accomplishment of our
Black Sea mission.

What does anger do for you?
Communicate for you? Keep

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.

Nov. 21, 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.

at (904) 270-5228.


From USS The Sullivans
USS The Sullivans pulled into
Souda Bay, Greece on Oct. 11.
The early morning scenery
exemplified the beauty of the
island. With calm weather and
welcoming personnel, Souda
Bay provided a much-needed
break for The Sullivans Sailors.
The biggest attraction was


Chania, a small harbor town
with many restaurants, pubs,
and shops. Sailors enjoyed the
quaint atmosphere and hospi-
table townspeople.
Also moored in Souda
Bay was the Standing NATO
Maritime Group (SNMG). The
Sullivans joined the SNMG
in Souda and will be steaming


with it in the weeks to come.
Sailors participated in a sport-
ing tournament and pot luck
picnic strengthening the ties
between the NATO nations.
Although the visit was short,
The Sullivans enjoyed the pic-
turesque isle and hope to return
to Greece in the future.

NHJax Celebrates Perioperative Nurses Week


By Lt. Cmdr. Kimberly A.
Taylor
NHJ Surgical Services
Heavily sedated surgical
patients usually do not have the
opportunity to thank the masked
nurses who care for them when
undergoing surgical procedures
in the operating room. In fact,
they may never recall the names
of those individuals, but it is
these dedicated perioperative
nurses who help ensure patients
receive the highest quality care
in a safe environment.
To recognize the extraordi-
nary contributions of these
highly-skilled health care pro-
fessionals, Naval Hospital
Jacksonville is celebrating
National Perioperative Nurses
Week from Nov. 9-15. This
year's theme focuses on influ-
encing the future of safe patient
care.
Perioperative nursing is a
subspecialty responsible for the
management of care for patients
undergoing surgical procedures.
The nursing role in the operating
room is collaborative. Working
closely with a multidisciplinary
team of surgeons, anesthesia
providers, surgical technologist
and others helps ensure the best

gery in the operating room.


care for the patient.
These specialized nurses act
as patient advocates and serve
as their "voice" when the patient


is anesthetized in the operating
room. They continually assess
the patient's condition before,
during and after the proce-


dure to detect and monitor any
changes in their health status.
The nurse's ability to create and
maintain a safe environment is


enhanced through observing the
surgery and the surgical team's
techniques.
They are an integral part of
ensuring the delivery of holistic
care to the surgical patient.
Currently there are 13 peri-
operative nurses assigned to
the hospital, the home of one of
two Navy Perioperative Nurse
training programs. Program
director Cmdr. Gene Truesdell
said, "Through the teaching of
evidence-based practice, we are
ensuring a safer environment of
patient care."
Truesdell enjoys provid-
ing instruction and guidance
to five perioperative nursing
students. "Perioperative nurs-
ing is an exciting, dynamic and
ever-changing technological
field that promotes a challeng-
ing learning experience on a
daily basis," he said. His stu-
dents consider multidisciplinary
teamwork to be the number one
reason they were drawn to the
field.
Susan K. Banschbach, reg-
istered nurse and President for
the Association of periOpera-
tive Registered Nurses (AORN)
feels this year's theme is vital
when looking to the future of


the profession. Whether it be
safely administering medica-
tions, ensuring the correct site
for surgery, or reducing errors,
patient safety is the cornerstone
of the profession. She said,
"We have the power to impact
the future of safe care, which is
of vital importance to all of us
and our patients."
Naval Hospital Jacksonville
has many unsung heroes who
work behind the scenes to pro-
vide the military community
stellar health care. By recog-
nizing the contributions of these
compassionate and caring peri-
operative nurses, the hospital
staff acknowledges the vital
role these professionals play in
delivering the highest quality of
care to all its surgical patients.
Note: Lt. Cmdr. Taylor is a
registered nurse with a Masters
Degree in Nursing from East
Carolina University. She joined
the Navy in 1992 through the
Bachelor Degree Completion
Program. She was commis-
sioned as a Navy Nurse in 1994.
She has held the Perioperative
Nursing subspecialty since
1997 and serves as the Division
Officer in the Main Operating
Room.


Time To Unwind At Bedtime


By Lt. Elliot Rosenbaum
NHJPsychology Staff
When you have insomnia,
you're never really asleep, and
you're never really awake. ~
From the movie Fight Club
Every week I see sailors who
can relate to the quote above.
They are tired, and for whatever
reason, they just can't get a full
night of restful sleep. In many
instances, a quote by Charlotte
Bronte hits the nail on the head:
"A ruffled mind makes a rest-
less pillow." Going to bed with
a mind full of worries, concerns
and to-do lists is not a good
setup for the relaxation need-
ed to induce sleep. The same
applies to having physical ten-
sion and stress stored up in your
body, so that when you get into
bed your body is keyed up and
tense. A tense body and mind
are just as bad for sleep as a
relaxed body and calm mind are
good for sleep. Here are five
quick ways you can ensure that
when you get into bed, you are
setup for a successful night's
sleep.
1. Allow yourself at least
one hour before bedtime to
unwind. The brain is not a car
that you just instantly turn on
and off (depending on how old
your car is.) Take a hot bath,


read a novel, write down your
concerns and plans for tomor-
row and put it away. Ideally,
do some things to de-stress
throughout the day like exercis-
ing. Find what works for you,
the key is to show up to bed
with a relaxed body and mind.
2. Go to bed only when you
are sleepy. Know the difference
between being tired and being
sleepy. Sleepy is when your
eyelids are shutting and your
face falls into your dinner. So if
you are yawning, head bobbing
and your eyes are closing, it's
time for bed. Otherwise, you
may just lie awake in bed which
gives you more time to become
frustrated. Lying in bed ponder-
ing the events of the day, plan-
ning and worrying are incom-
patible with sleep.
3. If you are not falling
asleep within 15 minutes, get
out of bed and return when
you are sleepy again. If you
have been using your bed as
your worrying and planning
place, chances are when your
brain sees your bed it thinks,
"Oh, here is my worrying and
planning place, let's get think-
ing." In order to change your
brain's associations to your bed
to "Oh, here is my sleeping
place," you have to spend your


time in bed actually sleeping,
even if it is for less time than
you would like. Not using your
bed for watching TV, listen-
ing to the radio, eating, reading
or discussing issues with your
spouse can also help you repro-
gram your brain.
4. Stop worrying about
not getting enough sleep.
Excessive worry about insom-
nia may be more detrimental to
your health than loss of sleep.
Insomnia is a widespread prob-
lem effecting nearly everyone at
some point in their life.
5. Consider learning some
relaxation techniques to use
throughout the day. These
may include progressive muscle
relaxation, deep breathing and
imagery. Google it, get a book
on it, or book an appointment
with a counselor to have him
teach it to you.
Note: It is important to know
what your limitations are due
to insomnia. Discuss your duty
status with your doctor, as poor
concentration and handling
heavy machinery is a concern.

Give Flu Vaccines A Shot


From TRICARE
TRICARE officials urge
uniformed service families
to be prepared for this year's
flu season and an important
step to do so is receive a flu
vaccine.
In the United States more
than 220,000 people are
hospitalized and 36,000 die
every year as a result of the
flu and flu-related complica-
tions. Although infants and
the elderly are most at risk for
serious illness or death, many
young people are also hos-
pitalized or die from the flu
each year.
According to the CDC, a
record number of flu vaccine
doses (over 140 million) have
been created for use in the
United States during the 2008-
09 flu season. The Department
of Defense has secured over
3.5 million doses; influenza
vaccinations are required for
all active duty and National
Guard and Reserve service
members according to depart-
ment-specific guidelines.
For the first time, the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC) rec-
ommend children from age 6


months to 18 years get the flu
vaccination. Previously, the
CDC recommended flu vacci-
nations for children from age
6 months to 5 years. Now,
all school-aged children are
encouraged to have it.
Annual recommendations
for adults have not changed.
Any adult who wants to
reduce the risk for becoming
ill or transmitting the flu to
others should be vaccinated.
Vaccinations are specifically
recommended for all adults in
the following groups:
Adults aged 50 years and
older
Persons aged 2 to 64 years
with underlying chronic medi-
cal conditions.
All women who or may be
pregnant during the influenza
season.
Children aged 6 months to
18 years on chronic aspirin
therapy.
Health care workers
involved in direct patient care.
Household contacts and
caregivers of children and
those 50 or older.
TRICARE covers the vac-
cine in two forms:
The flu shot is an inactivat-


ed vaccine containing a killed
virus and given with a needle.
This form of the vaccine may
be used in all age groups.
The nasal-spray flu vaccine,
or Flu Mist, is a vaccine made
with live, weakened flu virus-
es. This form of the vaccina-
tion is limited only to healthy
people who are not pregnant
or between the ages of 5 and
49.
The flu shot is covered for
beneficiaries, as long as it is
administered in a doctor's
office. Flu shots administered
in a civilian pharmacy, drug-
store or other location are not
covered by TRICARE. For
TRICARE for Life beneficia-
ries, Medicare covers flu vac-
cines and TRICARE is second
payer, if needed.
Military treatment facilities
and clinics also offer flu vac-
cinations. Check locally for
more information.
Find out more about flu vac-
cines on the CDC's flu page

or the Military Vaccine

14 THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, November 13, 2008


USO News


The Mayport will be collect-
ing canned food items. These
items will be used to prepare
food baskets that will be distrib-
uted to Junior Sailors and their
families before Thanksgiving.
During the past week, Sears
developed potential modifi-
cations to the Wish Registry
program and forwarded those
potential modifications to DoD
for review. The DoD Standards
of Conduct Office in consulta-
tion with the ethics leadership of
the military services reviewed
Sears' proposed modifications,
concluded that the ethical con-
cerns with the Wish Registry as
originally structured have been
resolved, and determined that
DoD personnel may participate
in the restructured program.
While DoD personnel may par-
ticipate in the restructured Wish


Registry program, they still may
not appear in uniform at Sears
stores or elsewhere for the pur-
pose of promoting Sears or its
Wish Registry program.
Significant modifications
include the following. First,
instead of only being open to E-
6/below with families, the Wish
Registry is now available to all
active-duty personnel regard-
less of rank and family status.
Second, instead of asking mili-
tary personnel to indicate which
Sears merchandise they "wish
for" resulting in improper solic-
itations, the Wish Registry now
merely requires interested mili-
tary personnel to register for the
program.
Additionally, Sears has
assured DoD that Sears --
nationally, regionally, and local-
ly -- will not request military


personnel to appear in uniform
at Sears stores to promote Sears
or its Wish Registry program.
The USO will hold a Jaguars
ticket lottery for games that
have a high demand for tick-
ets. Guidelines for the lottery
include participants must go to
the USO and fill out a lottery
request slip on the day the tick-
ets go on sale. This slip enters
your name into the drawing
for a chance to buy two tick-
ets only. If your name is drawn,
you will be called and required
to come to your USO within 24
hours to purchase your tickets.
Cost is $20 for two tickets. As
with all Jaguar tickets, these are
for active duty only.
The new Priority Mail Large
Flat Rate Box is now 50 per-
cent larger (12 x 12 x 5 12) and
for the first time in history, the


U.S. Postal Service if offering
a $2 discount when sending the
new larger box to an APO/FPO
address, enabling customers to
send more with one flat price of
$10.95. There are two versions
of the new box; one branded
with 'America Supports You"
(a Department of Defense-spon-
sored organization that supports
overseas military forces) and
includes an APO/FPO address

Rate Box is eligible for the $2
discount. The boxes can be

Commander, U.S. Naval
Forces Central Command
(NAVCENT), in cooperation
with the American Embassy
in Bahrain, announced Nov. 5
that adult family members for
all Department of Defense per-
sonnel permanently assigned
in Bahrain will be allowed to
return effective immediately.
This decision marks a change
to the defense department pol-
icy that has been in place since
July 2004 when families were
required to relocate following
security concerns.
"We are extremely pleased
with the policy change," said


thorizes Adult Family


7s To Return To Bahrain


Vice Adm. Bill Gortney, com-
mander, U.S. Naval Forces
Central Command. "The return
of our adult family members
reinforces the security and sta-
bility of the region, demon-
strates our enduring commit-
ment to Bahrain, and will make
the quality of life for our service
members and Department of
Defense civilians even better."
Gortney speaks from experi-
ence; four years ago, then-Capt.
Gortney was the chief of staff
for NAVCENT, and he oversaw
the departure of all of the fam-
ily members.
"I have been committed to
having family members return
to Bahrain ever since," he said.


U.S. Embassy ChargE
d'Affaires Christopher Henzel
and Rear Adm. Kendall Card
met with the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs Nov. 2 to inform
the Government of Bahrain.
"The return of the adult
dependents of Defense
Department personnel will
restore an important personal
dimension to the strong rela-
tionship between Bahrainis
and Americans," said Henzel.
"It was a pleasure to be the
bearer of such good news.
We look forward to welcom-
ing Department of Defense
adult family members back to
Manama."
School-age dependents and


below school-age dependents
will be considered at a later
date, after the Department of
Defense Education Activity
completes its supplemental sup-
port review.
Defense department personnel
currently serve 12-month unac-
companied tours in Bahrain,
with some assignments desig-
nated as 18-month tours. This

panied tours to 24 months.

New Rank Means New Officer Photo


From Navy Personnel Command Public

A Navy message released
Oct. 27 announced the latest list
of officers authorized for pro-
motion and also reminds them
to update their officer photos.
All Navy officers are required
to have an officer photo at their
current rank in their Official
Military Personnel File (OMPF)
maintained at Navy Personnel
Command (NPC). The photo is
displayed along with the mem-
ber's performance data during
selection boards.
New photographs are required
for all officers within three
months after acceptance of pro-
motion.
Officers who do not have a
photograph in OMPF in their
current grade must submit a


photograph. The preferred uni-
form is service khaki without
a cover. When service khaki
is unavailable, any regulation
uniform is acceptable. Officers
may have their photo taken at a
Navy or Department of Defense
facility.
When official facilities are
not available, officers are autho-
rized to use commercial sourc-
es. If commercial sources are
unavailable, officers may sub-
mit any color photograph that
complies with the requirements
outlined in MILPERSMAN
1070-180. These requirements
include:
*Display a full-length (head-
to-toe), three-quarter view of
the member (left shoulder for-
ward).
*Use a plain, flat background


to provide sufficient contrast to
highlight details of the uniform.
*Printed photo must be four
inches wide, six inches high.
A menu or hand-lettered title
board must be placed at or near
the member's left foot so it is
clearly readable in the finished
photograph, containing the fol-
lowing identifying data in two-
inch high letters:
*Member's last name, first
name and middle initial(s).
*Grade, last four digits of the
social security number, and des-
ignator.
*Date photograph taken (day,
month, year).
An example of what should
be included on the title board is:
OFFICER, FIRST, M.
LCDR/1234/1310
17 APR 07


Photographs must be attached
to NAVPERS 1070/884. This
form and MILPERSMAN 1070-
180 are available for download
at
http://www.npc.navy.mil/
Refere nceLibrary/Forms/
NAVPERS/.
Photographs must be mailed
to:
Navy Personnel Command
Pers-312C
5720 Integrity Dr.
Millington, TN 38055-3120
Officers may now use the
Web Enabled Records Review
program at https://www.bol.

and verify their photo is on file.

Freedom Commissioned In Milwaukee


By MCC Rhonda Burke
Commander, Navy Region Midwest
- Naval Station Great Lakes
The crew of USS Freedom
(LCS 1) ushered in a new
era in naval warfare, Nov. 8
as the ship was brought to
life at Milwaukee's Veterans
Park before a crowd of nearly
10,000.
The ship was officially placed
in commission by Secretary of
the Navy Donald C. Winter, who
remarked the Navy was com-
missioning not just Freedom but
a new class of naval war ships.
"In this platform we are mak-
ing the right investments in
our future security and in our
prosperity," Winter said. "For
those of you who will have the
privilege of serving in Freedom
you will play a leading role in
protecting our nation's interest
and in ensuring stability of the
global economy. You will also
be called upon to serve in a ship
whose namesake defines the
very aspirations of the American
people and of people the world
over."
Chief of Naval Operations,
Adm. Gary Roughead, said
Freedom will never have a more
important crew than its first
one, for they are the ones that
set the tone and standards that
will endure.
Freedom also represents a
new concept in how and where
the Navy is going to oper-
ate in executing the Maritime
Strategy.
"USS Freedom will sail as

an instrument of that strategy.
Hers will be the march of the
mind, with the spear and the
shield, she will proclaim and
insure the freedom of the seas
and the freedom of the nation,"
Roughead said.
Freedom is an innovative
combatant designed to operate
quickly in shallow water envi-
ronments to counter challenging
threats in coastal regions, spe-
cifically mines, submarines and
fast surface craft.
Following the Secretary's
commissioning, the ship's two
commanding officers, Cmdr.
Donald Gabrielson, Blue Crew
and Cmdr. Michael Doran,
Gold Crew, took command, set
the first watch and raised the
ensign.
The first ensign flown over
the ship had previously been
flown over Baghdad. After its
ceremonial unfurling, it was
hauled down and presented to
the ship's sponsor, Birgit Smith,
in honor of her late husband's
sacrifice in defense of freedom.
Smith is the wife of Army Sgt.
First Class Paul Smith, who
was posthumously awarded the
Congressional Medal of Honor,
the first in Operation Iraqi
Freedom.
Clutching the American flag
and flanked by the ship's two
commanding officers and two
senior enlisted leaders, Smith
tearfully gave the order to the
crew of Freedom, "man our ship
and bring her to life."
For the crew, the commission-


ing was the culmination of three
years of hard work.
"It is great to be part of a first
of class new ship that is outfit-
ted with 21st century technol-
ogy," said Mineman 1st Class
(SW) Jeff Steele, who has been
with the crew since July 2006.
"We have worked long and hard
for this day and to bring her to
life and go out and operate."
A fast, agile, and high-tech-
nology surface combatant,
Freedom will act as a platform
for launch and recovery of
manned and unmanned vehi-
cles.
Its modular design will sup-
port interchangeable mission
packages, allowing the ship to
be reconfigured for antisubma-
rine warfare, mine warfare, or
surface warfare missions on an
as-needed basis.
The LCS will be able to
swap out mission packages
adapting as the tactical situa-
tion demands. These ships will
also feature advanced network-
ing capability to share tactical
information with other Navy
aircraft, ships, submarines and
joint units.
Freedom is the first of two
LCS sea frames being produced.
Freedom will be manned by one
of two rotational crews, blue
and gold, similar to the rota-
tional crews assigned to Trident
submarines. The crews will
be augmented by one of three
mission package crews during
focused mission assignments.
The 378-foot Freedom was

MCPON Intent To


Retire An
By MCCS(SW/AW) Bill
Houlihan
Master ( Petty Officer of the
Navy Public, ;-
Master Chief Petty Officer
of the Navy (MCPON)(SW/
FMF) Joe R. Campa Jr., the
11th Sailor to serve in that
capacity, has announced his
plans to retire from active
duty at the end of his enlist-
ed active obligated service
(EAOS), April 1, 2009.
His last day in office will
be Dec. 13.
Campa, who assumed the
duties July 10, 2006, said
he feels an immense sense
of pride at the opportunities
he's been provided to lead the
Navy's enlisted force.
"This generation of Sailors
is unlike any other. Our men
and women serve a war-time
Navy and I have a deep sense
of pride in each one of them,"
said Campa. "Their values,
their effort and their contri-
bution to the defense of our
nation continue to humble
me. Leading them has been
the greatest privilege of my
career."
Within three months of
taking office, Campa had
released a document that
would set the tone and course
for his tenure as MCPON.
The "Mission, Vision and
Guiding Principles for
Chief Petty Officers" has
been ingrained in the fleet,
described by many as a return
to deckplate leadership.
Campa systematically
emphasized the Guiding
Principles as he had them
inserted into chief, senior
chief and master chief selec-
tion board precepts, the


nounced
Command Master Chief
Instruction and, final-
ly, the new evaluation
(CHIEFEVAL) for the Navy's
senior enlisted force.
"The CHIEFEVAL was
always the end state I'd hope
we'd reach. But we had to
be deliberate," said Campa.
"I'm very satisfied that the
Guiding Principles will
endure because our Chiefs
and commanding officers can
now see them as expectations
in black and white."
Campa served two chiefs
of naval operations, current
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs
Adm. Mike Mullen and
CNO Adm. Gary Roughead.
Roughead, in a message to
Navy leadership, said that
Campa's legacy will be felt
for years to come and that
the Navy owes him a debt
of gratitude for what he has
accomplished on behalf of
Sailors around the world.
"Early in his tour, it was
very clear that his intent was
to reset the chief's mess and
return its members to the
role of deckplate leadership.
Watching that happen aboard
our ships and shore stations
has made our Navy stronger
and inspired our Sailors,"
said Roughead. "MCPON
Campa's energy and pas-
sionate commitment to our
Sailors and their families is
infectious, and it has swept
across our entire navy. He
is a Sailor's MCPON, a
MCPON who changed the
Navy based on his love of
leading Sailors."
