NEX Givinc


Tree Benefits Mayport Kids


From ,
Dozens of family members and shoppers
lined the lobby of Mayport's main Navy
Exchange on Nov. 19 for the annual official
Lighting of the Giving Tree.
This is the 15th year of Giving Tree pro-
gram and was kicked off with performances
by the Child Development Center classes,
NS Mayport Executive Officer Cmdr. Mike
Watson and a visit from Santa Claus and
Mrs. Claus.
The Giving Tree is a special military com-
munity outreach program designed to extend
holiday warmth to special children in need
throughout the Mayport military commu-
nity. NEX patrons are asked to enhance the
Christmas holiday and makes dreams come
true for special children. All Navy Exchange
customers are encouraged to participate in
this worthwhile project.
This program will end on Dec. 19. The
essence of the program is for individuals to
sign up at the Giving Tree to purchase and
make a gift for a child who is represented by
a handmade ornament on the Giving Tree.
The ornaments were provided by the Child
Development Center.
Last year, more than 600 donated gifts
were distributed to more than 200 children.
To participate, select an ornament with
a child's description on it from the Giving
Tree. Register your name with a Giving Tree
staff member. Purchase and/or make a gift
for the child and then return it unwrapped
and the ornament to NEX within seven days.
Nominations to receive gifts as part of the
program will be accepted at the USO until
noon on Dec. 19.

The Chief of Naval
Operations (CNO) released
a holiday safety message to
Sailors and their families Nov.
19.
Adm. Gary Roughead, CNO,
reminds Sailors that operational
risk management, on and off
duty, is essential to preventing
mishaps at home or while trav-
elling during the holidays.
"Over the holidays and
throughout the year, use com-
mon sense and simple risk man-
agement. Get enough rest, and
give yourself adequate driving


Safety
time if travelling. Know our
limits, and use good judgment
when celebrating," CNO said.
While Sailors are with their
families and loved ones cel-
ebrating at home, they are
reminded to keep in mind those
shipmates who are serving for-
ward. It is because of these hard
working men and women that
those at home can enjoy the
holiday season.
"We have many things for
which to be thankful and many
reasons to celebrate. Doing so
safely is the best gift I can think
of," Roughead said.

Gettysburg Takes Field


At Jaguars/Titans Game


By Lt.j.g. Dennis Panos
USS Gettysburg PAO
Five Sailors from USS
Gettysburg prepared to take the
field before the Jacksonville
Jaguars and Tennessee Titans
played an important divisional
rivalry game on Nov. 16 as part
of Military Appreciation Day.
The Gettysburg Sailors
weren't preparing with ankle
tape and eye black to suit up
against either team, but rather
they had received the honor to
represent the ship and the Navy
by parading the colors before


the national anthem.
With their well-pressed uni-
forms looking sharp and the
flags held high, the five Sailors
paraded the colors onto the
field to the cheers of the NFL
crowd. As the national anthem
was concluding and the Honor
Guard was preparing to depart
the field an Air Force stealth B-
2 swooped low over the field to
kick off the game.
The members of the team
were honored to be the Navy
representatives and had pre-
pared with many practice ses-


sions to be ready for this oppor-
tunity.
"This is a first for our team.
Only those Sailors who are
truly committed are chosen
and we train as often as we
can, so we're always ready for
whatever situation comes up,"

Are you a 'glass half empty'
person or a 'glass half full'
person? My friend Tanya says,
"I'm a glass-half-empty person
who keeps her eye on the pitch-
er."
Have you faced challenges
this year? High gas prices, food
costs, deployments and other
challenges affected many this
year. I have family members
who lost jobs due to economic
downturns. I know others who
lost their homes. It has been a
tough year. It is understandable
to be a glass-half-empty person
in these times.
The Pilgrims endured a year
of incredible hardship and loss.
Those who survived could
have taken on a grim view of
their future. Instead they per-
severed, developed valuable
relationships among their own
group and their neighbors. They
pressed on to build a life in a
land that would become our
great nation.
It is interesting to me that
the founders of Thanksgiving,
Pilgrims and Native Americans,
celebrated with a feast. A glass-
half-empty person would not
celebrate with a large feast. No,
a glass-half-empty person would
protect the stores of abundance
to insure the supplies would
last through the winter. But the
Pilgrims and Native Americans
celebrated with a huge feast
and thankful hearts. I think they
must have determined to be
glass-half-FULL people.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving
this week I am determined, in


the midst of economic uncer-
tainty and other challenges, to
emulate the first celebrants of
Thanksgiving; to be a glass-half-
full observer of Thanksgiving.
I know there are many, very
real challenges we face. But
look at all we have. As mili-
tary families we have job secu-
rity. We live in a country where
the transfer of governance is
a peaceful transition. When I
pause to take inventory of all
the blessings I have well,
this column cannot contain the
list. Thanksgiving changes my
attitude. It is so easy to focus
on challenges and not our
blessings. In the news industry
there is a saying, "If it bleeds, it
leads", meaning the "bad news"
story gets the first prominence.
Sometimes we do that in our
lives. That is why Thanksgiving
Day is so important. We can
take for granted all that we have
- focusing on those few things
that are not what we want;
glass-half-empty. This day gives
us a chance to focus on the 'full
part' of that glass... all we have!
We remain a blessed and fortu-
nate nation.
As the Pilgrims and Native
Americans celebrated the
end of summer with hope
for the future, I wish you a
Thanksgiving celebration full
of family, feasting and a glass-
half-full future. Have a safe and
happy Thanksgiving!

Sometimes this conclusion is
based upon history: marital his-
tory, or childhood history. The
silent partner usually does not
like verbal battle, and silence is
a way of avoiding it.
If we create a climate of
friendly dialogue, we can
discuss our hurts, needs, and
desires and then seek for work-
able solutions. Once the "silent
partner" realizes that talking
does not lead to battle but to
peace, the "silent treatment"
will be left behind. The "silent

Vets Day With Veterans


By Lt. Kelly Chufo
USS McInerney PAO
Sailors from the USS
McInerney (FFG 8) First Class
Petty Officer's Association vol-
unteered their services on Nov.
10-11 to celebrate Veterans Day
at the Emory L. Bennett State
Veterans' Nursing Home in
Daytona Beach, Florida.
Named after Private First
Class Emory L. Bennett, a
Floridian who was posthu-
mously awarded the Medal of
Honor for his heroic actions
during the Korean War. The
home opened its doors to resi-
dents in December 1993. Under
the care and administration of


Mrs. Belkis Pineyro-Wiggins,
this state-of-the-art facility pro-
vides the highest quality of life,
nursing and medical care to its
veteran residents.
To prepare and commemo-
rate Veterans Day, McInerney
Sailors assisted the staff by
painting, cleaning and decorat-
ing the facility. The Sailors then
participated in an Open House;
sharing their military experience
and life-long memories with the
staff and its veterans.
The guest speaker for the
Veterans Day celebration
was Retired Admiral LeRoy
Collins Jr., Executive Director
of the Florida Department of


Veterans' Affairs. A native of
Tallahassee, Florida, he received
his commission from the U.S.
Naval Academy in 1956 and
spent the next 10 years on
active duty before transferring
to the Navy Reserve in 1966.
Following a distinguished mili-
tary career both ashore and at
sea, he retired from the Navy
Reserve in October 1990.
At the conclusion of the
festivities, a total of 23 Navy
Veterans, whose services ranged
from WWII to Vietnam, had
their pictures taken with the
Sailors and were presented
McInerney ball caps as a token
of appreciation.

Sailors' Paternity Leave Policy Announced


By Lt. Karen E. Eifert
Task Force Life Work
The Navy announced the
implementation of a paternity
leave policy authorized Oct.
14, which is part of the Fiscal
Year 2009 National Defense
Authorization Act.
The paternity leave policy
provides Sailors another tool
designed to help balance work
and family. It grants 10 days of
non-chargeable leave to married
fathers who are currently serv-
ing on active duty following the
birth a child.


"I think the policy is great,"
said Yeoman 1st Class Luis
Lujan who has two children and
expects the arrival of a third in
approximately two weeks.
"My wife is scheduled to
have a C-section, which is a
major surgery. She's going to
need the time to recover and
shouldn't have to worry about
anything but healing during that
time," he said.
Lujan said he'll adjust to a
new routine during his paternity
leave but feels it is important
for him to help out during the


critical first days after the birth
of a new child.
Lujan said his wife usually
takes the kids to school and
picks them up from child care,
but it's a job he'll assume dur-
ing his leave.
"I'll also be doing the cook-
ing, cleaning and laundry, and
helping to care for the new-
born," he said. "It's only fair."
Lujan's wife, First Class
Petty Officer Monico Lujan, an
active-duty hospital corpsman,
said she's excited about the
new paternity policy and said it


makes her feel more committed
to the Navy.
"The leave will really help
us because we won't have fam-
ily around to help," she said
explaining that the nearest rela-
tive lives in Texas and will not
be able to get time off from
work to visit.
"But I think it's great because
the Navy asks a lot of Sailors,
and so it's like they are looking
out for us."
The Navy, which is commit-
ted to becoming one of the top
50 employers in the nation and


attracting the best talent pos-
sible, designed the progressive
paternity leave policy after con-
sidering the changing perspec-
tives of work and family needs
in the Navy. These perspectives
include a desire for more family
time.
The Lujans are only one of
several military families excited
about the new paternity leave
policy. The popularity of the
new benefit among fathers
demonstrates the priority both
male and female Sailors place
on striking a healthy balance


between work and family.
"We're pleased to be able to
offer this highly-valued benefit,"
said Capt. Ken Barrett, head of
Task Force Life Work, which
helped spearhead the paternity
leave policy. "Addressing life/
work needs for our Sailors is
a top priority. The ability for
new dads to bond with a new
baby or help mom at home is
important to building healthy
families and is a big priority for
our Navy."


Personal Property Shipping Offices Pilot


New System For Movi


From Fleet and Industrial Cen-
ter Pubhc. ..
Fleet and Industrial Supply
Center personal property ship-
ping offices (PPSO) in Puget
Sound, Wash., Naples, Italy,
and San Diego, began piloting
the Defense Personal Property
System (DPS), a new Web-
based system for arranging
household goods (HHG) moves,
Nov. 19.
Eligible HHG shipments
moving between these three
FISC PPSOs and the other
18 pilot sites throughout the
Department of Defense will be
processed in DPS. Shipments
not moving between the pilot
sites will continue to be pro-
cessed through DoD's current
moving program, Transportation
Operational Personal Property
Standard System (TOPS).
DPS is part of a new DoD
personal property program
called Families First, which
focuses on meeting the needs of
service members by promoting
quality service.


The backbone of Families
First, DPS, was developed to
improve and streamline the
HHG move process for service
members, military civilians and
their families. It will replace
TOPS when it is successfully
implemented.
"DPS is designed to alleviate
some of the stresses inherent
in permanent change of station
(PCS) moves by giving custom-
ers a voice in how their personal
property is moved," said Rear
Adm. Andy Brown, command-
er, Fleet and Industrial Supply
Centers. "It will provide cus-
tomers with 24-hour online
access to personal property
shipment information through-
out the entire move process."
DPS will be the focal point
for all members of the personal
property community, including
DoD customers, Transportation
Service Providers (TSPs),
PPSOs, the military services
and others who participate in
the personal property moving
process. Customers will use


DPS to file and settle claims
directly with their TSP. Claims
protection includes full replace-
ment value of items lost or dam-
aged beyond repair.
"Under the new system,
customers will be able to cor-
respond directly with TSPs to
obtain first-hand information
relating to their personal prop-
erty shipments," said Brown.
"They won't need to go through
a third party to ask simple ques-
tions about shipment status,
delivery options, excess weight
costs or to expedite loss and
damage claims."
The system will provide
enhancements for TSPs includ-
ing improved payment pro-
cessing through the U.S. Bank
PowerTrack system, online rate
filing, reduction of government-
unique forms and the ability to
accept shipments online. TSPs
will also receive notifications of
important information through-
out the shipment management
process.
The enhanced capabilities of


I


ng HOL
DPS will also result in reduced
paper handling for PPSOs.
"Our PPSO personnel will
benefit from the more efficient
and streamlined processes and
have a better system to manage
their workflow and respond to
customers needs," said Brown.
Since DPS is a Web-based
application, there is no appli-
cation-specific software to
install or set-up on computers.
However, users need Netscape
4.75 (or higher) or Microsoft
Internet Explorer 5.5 (or high-
er) browsing software with
JavaScript and cookies enabled
and a valid e-mail account.
For additional information,
visit the DPS homepage at

tact one of the FISC DPS pilot

Peleliu Boasts New Mom Among Group Of



New Dads Following Six-Month Deployment


By MCSN(SW/AW)
Michelle Rhonehouse
USS Peleliu Public. -,
In a new twist to an old story,
USS Peleliu (LHA 5) is boasting
a new mom among the group
of new dads who were the first
ones off the ship Nov. 4 during
its homecoming ceremonies fol-
lowing a scheduled six-month
deployment.
Senior Chief Master-at-Arms
(SW/AW) Kathleen Gutierrez,
assigned to Peleliu's security
division, and her husband, Joe,
said they have wanted children
for years. What they couldn't
do on their own was solved by
the process of adoption.
When a baby boy was born
just nine days after Peleliu
deployed and the adoption was
finalized, Gutierrez became a
new mom while on deployment.
Just like the group of new dads
who are traditionally the first
ones off the ship following a
deployment, Gutierrez made her
way down the brow and was
able to hold her son for the
first time shortly after the ship
moored at Naval Station San
Diego.
"I just don't want to let him
go," said Gutierrez as she took
her son, David, from her hus-
band and held him in her arms
for the first time. "There are a
lot of happy tears today."

the amphibious assault ship USS Peleliu (LHA 5), sees her son for
the first time after returning from a six-month deployment. Peleliu
is the flag ship for the Peleliu Expeditionary Strike Group.


The Gutierrez family start-
ed the adoption process short-
ly after Peleliu returned from
a deployment in 2006. After
researching the idea of adop-
tion they contacted an attorney
in San Diego who specializes in
adoptions and began the paper-
work and preparations that can
often take years to complete.
"The journey to this day
has been years coming," said
Gutierrez. "Words are not
enough to express the love
I have felt since the day I got
word I was a mom. God has
truly blessed my husband and


me."
Their lawyer worked with
adoption agencies nationwide


in an attempt to match the
Gutierrez family with a moth-
er who had decided to place
their child up for adoption. As
months turned into years, the
couple said they never gave up
hope in their efforts to adopt a
child.
"It was not an easy deci-
sion to make when Joe and I
considered our options," said
Gutierrez. "Everyone wants
to have their own child, one
you carry for nine months and
give birth to, but I have always
wanted children, so we decided
to adopt."
After two years of interviews
and paperwork, the couple
was notified just before Kathy
deployed in May aboard Peleliu
that they would soon be receiv-
ing a child. David Benjamin
Gutierrez was born May 13
in Philadelphia, just nine days

after Gutierrez deployed aboard

Philadelphia to welcome their
new son into the world and
bring him to back to San Diego.
Gutierrez said that through
photographs and an occasional
video teleconference she has
been able to see her son while
on deployment, but that nothing
compares to holding him for the
first time.

"I am looking forward to
every milestone in his life from
here on out," said Gutierrez. "I
may not have carried him for
nine months, but David is my
son, and I couldn't be happier.
I thought May 13 [the child's
birth date] was the happiest day
of my life, but I know now its

him and see him smile."

Operational Stress Control

Training, Resources

Available To All Sailors


From ( of Naval Personnel Public
All hands operational stress
control (OSC) training, which
aims to teach Sailors how to
recognize signs and symptoms
of stress in themselves and oth-
ers and how to manage opera-
tional stress, has started in the
fleet.
More than 1,000 Sailors have
received the training at various
locations including the Senior
Enlisted Academy in Newport,
R.I. Even though training has
started, the Navy continues to
develop a formalized curricu-
lum to deliver the training at all
levels throughout the Navy.
The overall goal of the OSC
awareness training is to empha-
size operational stress control
strategies, reduce the stigma
associated with psychological
health care and develop resilient
Sailors and families, according
to Capt. Lori Laraway, Navy
operational stress control coor-
dinator.
To ensure a ready fleet, lead-
ers and Sailors must work to
develop skills to recognize and
respond to stress and foster a
cultural shift in which Sailors
recognize the importance and
acceptability of seeking help
early when dealing with opera-
tional stress.
Laraway also explained that
effective management of oper-
ational stress is imperative to
mission accomplishment. She
emphasized that Navy leaders,
at all levels, are responsible for
promoting and building resil-
iency in their Sailors and their
families.
In today's operational envi-
ronment, many Sailors and their
families are coping with stress-
related injuries and illnesses
that can be treated effectively if
caught early said Laraway.
"Stress reactions are nor-
mal responses to challenges or
events; all humans are going to
react. The majority of the time
our reactions subside once the
stressor is over. But sometimes,
the challenge may be too severe


or the stress may last too long
and the stress reaction actually
progresses to a stress injury,"
she said.
"There are many actions
that can be taken by individu-
als, peers, leaders and family
members that can help prevent
or mitigate this progression.
That is what operational stress
control is about -- recognizing
the signs and symptoms that
reactions may be progressing
to injury and taking proactive
action to lessen the impact or
make early referrals if neces-
sary," said Laraway.
The OSC awareness train-
ing includes the recognition of
symptoms of impairment, no
matter the cause, and provides
options, strategies and resourc-
es to help the affected Sailor
and their family. The training
explains how early recognition
and treatment for stress injuries
or illnesses may enable Sailors
to continue to fulfill their duties.
And that improperly managed
stress damages a Sailor's health
and impacts his or her ability to
achieve the mission.
In addition to this train-
ing there are many tools and
resources available to aid
Sailors in the management
of operational stress. These
include:

Chairman Notes


Military Family


Appreciation


THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, November 27, 2008 13

Military Appreciation Luncheon


From American Forces Press Service
Military Family Appreciation
Week begins tomorrow, and
Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
issued a message today noting
the observance.
Here is the text of the chair-
man's message:
"This month, as we celebrate
our blessings, and give thanks
for our freedom to enjoy them,
we take great pride in honor-
ing November 21-28, 2008 as
Military Family Appreciation
Week.
"Families serve just as their
uniformed service members
do. And the military family has
rarely faced as many challenges
as our families do today. After
seven years of war, hundreds
of thousands of families have
served through multiple deploy-
ments in support of operations
Iraqi Freedom and Enduring
Freedom, as well as many other
locations throughout the globe.
"But the love and support of
our military families do more
than allow us to serve abroad.


Our families serve at the very
center of American society.
They are the bedrock of a free
republic, which provides for a
common defense and their
commitment to the values of
hard work, self-sacrifice, and
moral virtue is a source of great
pride and inspiration for us all.
"And, in this service, some
families have suffered great loss
- the kind of heart-wrenching
loss that echoes for generations.
We as a Nation owe the families
of the wounded, and the fall-
en, a lifetime of gratitude and
respect for a debt which we can
never fully repay.
"On behalf of my family and
those of the Joint Chiefs, to all
our military families, past and
present, we thank you for your
service, your sacrifice, and your
love. You truly are a wellspring
of our Nation's honor, courage,
and strength. With you by our
side, we accomplish far more
than we ever could alone."
Respectfully,
M.G. MULLEN, Admiral,
U.S. Navy

TroopTube Gives


Morale Boost


to Deployed


Servicemembers


By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Nov. 17,
2008 Overseas-deployed ser-
vicemembers can receive video
"shout-outs" from home, as
well as senior-leader messages,
thanks to the new TroopTube
online information service,
according to military officials.
TroopTube is a new Web
site managed by the Defense
Department's Military
OneSource online information
network. It is patterned after
YouTube, the popular com-
mercial video site, said Gail
Lobisone, who works with
Military OneSource at U.S.
Army Family, Morale, Welfare
and Recreation Command
in Alexandria, Va. It can be
accessed at www.trooptube.tv/
home.
Each armed service manages
a MilitaryOneSource.com site
that connects servicemembers
and families to assistance pro-
grams that deal with moving,
finances, deployment, childcare
and other military-life issues.
The TroopTube concept is
right for the times, Lobisone
said during a Nov. 14 interview
with the Pentagon Channel.
Today's soldiers, she said, "like
the ability to connect through
technology."


TroopTube is expected to
raise troop morale by providing
near-real-time communication
to loved ones back home, said
Army Col. Brick T. Miller, U.S.
Army Family, Morale, Welfare
and Recreation Command's
deputy commander and chief
of staff. The in-house commu-
nications system, he added, also
helps the military to conserve
Internet bandwidth.
Deployed servicemembers
can access TroopTube to view
their children's stateside high
school graduations, birthdays
and other notable family events,
Miller said. Single soldiers, he
added, can keep current with
parents, siblings and friends
back home.
Sites like TroopTube exempli-
fy and provide "what the young-
er soldiers want today to be able
to communicate with their fami-
lies," Miller said. TroopTube
helps to ease the minds of over-
seas-deployed servicemembers,
he said, while helping family
members stay in touch.
"We see it as a way of low-
ering the stress level," Miller
said. "This is a way of getting
closer to real-time gratification,
which is what the Millennium
Generation is used to."

Films at MOCA, a program
designed by the Museum of
Contemporary Art Jacksonville
in partnership with the
Jacksonville Film Festival,
is presenting Trail of Tears:
Cherokee Legacy. This movie
will show at the Museum of
Contemporary Art at 8 p.m. Di-
rected by Chip Richie, narrated
by James Earl Jones and pre-
sented by actor Wes Studi in
his native Cherokee language
with English subtitles, this 2006
award-winning independent
documentary focuses on the
Cherokee, Creek, Chickasaw,
Choctaw, and Seminole tribes.
Trail of Tears combines inter-
views with distinguished his-
torians and powerful re-enact-
ments to tell the story of the
16,000 Cherokee Indians that
were forced to relocate further
west due to the Indian Removal
Act of 1830. Their 800-
mile journey to what is now
Oklahoma resulted in the deaths
of thousands, and later became
known as the "trail of tears."
This film will revisit this untold
chapter in American History on
Thanksgiving evening, sharing a
new understanding of the histo-
ry of these first Americans with
Jacksonville families. Tickets
are $6 for members and $8 for
non-members and available at

es. Its pricing strategy ensures
customers are getting the best
brands at the best price. "There
are a lot of stores that offer best
brands and many offer best
buys, but only the NEX offers
both," said Paquette. "NEXs
offer prestige brands, national
mass brands and private brands,
all at significant savings."
However, the NEX isn't all
about brand names. The NEX
specifically designs its mer-
chandise to cater to its varied
customer base and their wide
ranging incomes "We are very
aware of the wide spread in
household incomes our stores
have to serve," said Paquette.
"We want our Sailors and fami-
lies to know they have choices
at the NEX that will meet their
budget, no matter what that may
be."
For customers who don't live
near a NEX, purchases can be
made online at www.navy-nex.
com. The Exchange Mail Order
catalog offers a wide selec-


tion of products at the same
value price found in a military
exchange. Just like a NEX,
there's no sales tax on the mer-
chandise purchased. Customers
in Europe, the western Pacific,
Cuba and Bahrain may purchase
large items and have it delivered
to the local NEX for pick-up.
Shipping is free on all orders
over $49 or those paid for using
the MILITARY STARTM card.
The MILITARY STARTM
card, the military exchanges
in-house credit card, is a great
option for those customers
who choose to pay for holiday
gifts with a credit card. "The
MILITARY STARTM card offers
a superior interest rate compared
to other civilian credit cards,
which typically charge 20 per-
cent or more," said James Winn,
NEXCOM Customer Service
Manager. "The MILITARY
STARTM card also offers cus-
tomers benefits not often found
with commercial credit cards."
Among the card's many ben-
efits include 10 percent off the
first day's purchases (up to the
customer's credit limit), 24-
hour Customer Service, includ-
ing online access, zero percent
interest promotions and no
annual fee.
In addition, the MILITARY
STARTM card has a reduced
interest rate program for quali-
fying Navy and Marine Corps
personnel by waiving the
monthly payments for account
holders for the duration of an
assignment over 90 days to a
contingency area and interest
rate charges are reduced under
two options.
"We know customers are
going to make purchases this
holiday season," said Paquette.
"We want our customers to
make wise purchasing decisions
based on their own financial
situation. Using credit for pur-
chases isn't for everyone. But
for those who choose to use
credit, we encourage them to


look into the favorable inter-
est rate and benefits of the
MILITARY STARTM card."
For those customers who pre-
fer not to use credit, the NEX
offers a layaway program. A
minimum deposit of 10 per-
cent of the purchase price plus
a $5 non-refundable layaway
fee is all that is required to lay-
away purchases. Once all pay-
ments are made, customers can
bring the merchandise home.
Depending on the category of
merchandise purchased, pay-
ments can be spread over 180
days. Customers are encouraged
to check with their local NEX
for other specific details relat-
ing to layaway as some stores
may limit the number of items
permitted on layaway due to
space constraints.
In addition to all the value at
the NEX, customers also benefit
from the quality of life contri-
butions to Morale, Welfare and
Recreation (MWR). In 2007,
that amount totaled nearly $34
million.
"As a quality of life resource
for the Navy, the NEX is very
aware of the sacrifices and chal-
lenges faced by our Sailors and
their families, especially in a
challenging economic environ-
ment," said Paquette. "We want
our customers to understand our
commitment to look after their
best interest in how we price
and promote the products they
need.
The NEX, in partnership with
the Fleet and Family Support
Programs and the Navy Safety
Center, actively supports initia-
tives geared towards motorcycle
safety, budgeting for the holi-
days, and responsible drinking,
all of which have a direct effect
to fleet readiness.

Advancements Released;


Opportunity Steady


From ( of Naval Personnel Public

The Chief of Naval Personnel
(CNP) released the Cycle 200
active-duty advancements Nov.
19 for the fall 2008 exam cycle.
Overall advancement oppor-
tunity held steady for the fourth
straight exam cycle, with total
opportunity decreasing by only
.56 percent, from 24.69 percent
to 24.13 percent.
Sailors taking the E-4 test saw
their advancement opportunity
increase from 42.54 percent to
43.94 percent (+1.40 percent),
while E-5 quotas stayed stable
at 22.60 percent (-.68 percent),
and E-6 test takers saw oppor-
tunity decrease slightly from
12.14 percent to 10.75 percent
(-1.39 percent).
Rear Adm. Dan Holloway,
director of CNP's policy branch,
said "I'm happy to see advance-
ment remain steady once again.
We saw a smooth trend from
last year to this year, and given
our increased retention through
all paygrades, that's very
encouraging news."
"We'll be watching advance-
ment very closely in 2009 and
beyond," Holloway said. "If we
continue to see increased reten-
tion, especially in the senior pay
grades, upcoming advancement
cycles could see a decrease in
opportunity, especially at the E-
7 to E-9 level."

cent of E-4 test takers include:
