Building 2105 Now MCPON Del Black Barracks


Antwone Fisher
To Speak At
NS Mayport
Fleet and Family Support
Center (FFSC) Mayport will
host screenwriter/speak-
er and U.S. Navy veteran
Antwone Fisher on April 16 in
conjunction with Child Abuse
Prevention Month activities
scheduled in April.
A New York Times Best
Seller, Fisher is best-known
for the major motion picture
based on his life and pro-
duced and starring Denzel
Washington. He is also an
accomplished speaker, who
tours the United States to
talk about his life in the fos-
ter care system, child abuse
and overcoming adversity.
Lunch tickets are available
for purchase at ITT for $8.
The presentation will be held
from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Ocean
Breeze Conference Center.
Tickets must be purchased
by April 10.
According to his biography,
Fisher was born in prison
to a teenaged mother. He
became a ward of the state
of Ohio and was placed in
foster care immediately. He
spent two years in a lov-
ing foster home, but when it
was apparent that the fos-
ter mother had become too
attached to Antwone, deem-
ing a reunion with his birth
mother too difficult for the
child, he was placed in a
foster home where he would
suffer 12 years of abuse at
the hands of the foster fam-
ily.
He survived the cruelties of
foster care and the brutalities
of homelessness and set on
a course of healing after join-
ing the United States Navy
where he served his country
for 11 years.
At age seventeen,
Antwone made the critical
decision to join the United
States Navy.Graduating as
an official recruit of the U.S.
Navy, Fisher experienced a
purity of feeling he'd never
felt before: pride."My life was
beginning," he writes. "Not
another chapter in my sad
history, but another book,
another life entirely, with
every possibility of every
good fortune ahead of me."
In the course of his 11
years, with the Navy, every
ship and every station pro-
vided him with essential
lessons. He learned how
to walk with his head high,
literally. He learned to trust
others and came to under-
stand that others could rely
on him.He also befriend-
ed a navy psychiatrist,
Commander Williams, who
listened to Fisher's story and
helped him see that his life
had not begun as a foster
child.

What better way to celebrate
the birth of the Navy Chief Petty
Officer than to name a barracks
after the first Master Chief Petty
Officer of the Navy (MCPON).
Naval Station Mayport (NS)
dedicated their newest barracks
in honor of the first MCPON,
the late Delbert D. Black, in a
ceremony held April 1.
Black enlisted in the Navy in
March 14, 1941 and completed
a career which spanned thirty
years. He assumed the duties of
MCPON on Jan. 13, 1967 and '
held the title four years, retir-
ing on April 1, 1971. Black
served as a Gunner's Mate
aboard nine warships, including
USS Maryland (BB 46) in Pearl
Harbor when Japan struck Pearl
Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.
Ima Black, Delbert's wife,
attended the ceremony and spoke
about her husband's career.
"When my husband became
the MCPON, I said my husband
is the top enlisted man in the
Navy, and some 40 years later I i
still believe that holds true."
Guest Speaker for the event
was retired MCPON John
Hagen, who held that position from
1992 to1998.
"Del Black was a true leader, a Pearl Harbor
survivor, and battle tested Sailor, who cared
deeply for our junior enlisted and wanted to do
everything in his power to improve their quality
of life," said Hagen. "It is truly fitting that a bar-
racks which will improve our Sailor's quality of
life is being named after him."
The new barracks is part of the Navy's
Homeport Ashore Program (HPA) which gives
junior personnel who are on sea duty, and not
eligible to receive housing allowance, the oppor-
tunity to live in a barracks when their ship is in
port.
"It is all for the motivation of our young
Sailors, to show them how successful they can
be. MCPON Black is a great example of this,
and we are pleased that we could dedicate this
building to him," said Capt. Aaron Bowman,
Commanding Officer of Naval Station Mayport.
"I wish I could have met him," said NS
Mayport CMC Deborah Davidson. "What a
presence he commanded through his hands-on
approach and his words. When he took office,

CO Column


Welcome back goes out
to the men and women of the
USS Underwood, HSL-48
Detachment Two and U.S.
Coast Guard Law Enforcement
Detachment 101. They came
home last week after six months
of conducting counter illicit
drug traffic deployment to the
Eastern Pacific. While deployed,
this amazing team seized more
than 53,000 pounds of contra-
band worth an estimated street
value of more than $1.6 billion
from drug smugglers.
Welcome is also in order for
the crew of the USS Samuel
B. Roberts and HSL 60
Detachment Two who arrived
just a couple of days after
Underwood. They too were on
a Counter Narcotic Terrorism
deployment. Operating under
the tactical control of Joint
Inter-Agency Task Force-South,
Sammy B traveled the high seas
in support of the Department
of Defense and U. S. Southern
Command's role in the fight


Capt. Aaron Bowman
against drugs. Through Inter-
agency cooperation, high-speed
pursuits, and plenty of true grit,
Sammy B was able to make five
separate drug busts, capturing
more than 7.9 metric tons of
cocaine, with a street value of
approximately $557 million.
Again, well done and welcome
back to everyone.
My special thanks goes out
to our Command Master Chief


Deb Davidson and EVERYONE
who had a hand in last week's
naming of building 2105 in
honor of our first MCPPON
Delbert Black. The barracks that
now bears his name is an excel-
lent example of what MCPON
Black was all about. He was
a ringleader who fought for
quality of life for Sailors and
his legacy lives on as we more
and more enjoy the benefits of
improved quality of life here at
the station and in the Navy. He
would be proud. Again, thank
you to everyone who made this
a truly special occasion.
Our sea turtle season
begins on May 1 and ends
30 September. There will be
a meeting on May 1 at 1900
here in building one to dis-
cuss the next nesting season.
The meeting is open to anyone
that spends time on our beaches
and may want to volunteer with
this year's season. We have an
exceptional environmental pro-
gram here and our pristine coast


and sea turtles are a big part of
that. In fact, the current "All
Hands" magazine has a feature
in it about our turtles, staring
our own Art Burt!
We have kicked-offthis year's
Navy and Marine Corps Relief
Society fund drive and the chal-
lenge is on. The drive ends
April 17 and this year our goal
is $200,000. Last year, Mayport
assisted nearly 1,500 clients and
provided loans and grants total-
ing more than $925,000. Each
and every dollar donated will
go to help a shipmate or family
get through a tough time. Those
tough times can range from get-
ting help with car repairs, emer-
gency travel, rent, utility pay-
ment or groceries on the table.
Please participate in this very
worthy program.
Speaking of Navy Marine
Corps Relief Society (NMCRS),
the TPC this year is doing some
great things for the military.
Active Duty and retirees will
be allowed in free for all day


for practice rounds Mon-Wed
May 4-6th. During the com-
petition rounds, active duty
and retirees will be allowed in
free after 1500 till completion
of the round. Children sixteen
and under will be allowed in
free with adults. For everyone
else, TPC is now selling Prime
Time tickets for admission after
1500 for $25 per day. If those
tickets are purchased through
the Navy Marine Corps Relief
website (http://www.nmcrs-
mayport.org/), TPC will donate
$22 per ticket to NMCRS.
TPC is also having 6 May be
Military appreciation day and
is recognizing President George
Herman Walker Bush with a
lifetime achievement Award--
-Navy Volunteers will line the
18th fairway for the presenta-
tion. Please get the word out
on purchasing tickets and make
sure you thank the TPC for such
hospitality and recognition of
your service.
Last but not least, I want


to give a belated "Happy
Birthday" to all of our Chief
Petty Officers. This year marks
116 years that you as a mess
have provided the leadership
and mentorship that is needed
just as much now as it did back
then. Your Sailors might not
often express it, but they appre-
ciate your sage advice and the
expertise you give as they make
their own way up the ladder to
success. Thank you so much for
what you do and happy birthday
Chief.
Please keep an eye out while
you go through your day and
don't hesitate to let me know if
you see a better (or safer way)
to do business around the base.
Your concerns are my concerns,
so keep those suggestions roll-
ing in to the CO's suggestion
box located at the base galley,
or email them to aaron.bow-
man@navy.mil.


What does Easter mean to
you? It can mean many differ-
ent things to a variety of people.
To be sure, like so many other
holidays, Easter has taken on a
commercial flavor in our cul-
ture. The seasonal marketing
of the ubiquitous Easter Bunny
increases the profit margin
for many retail shops. Easter
fashions mark the changeover
from winter to spring and the
all-important Easter-egg hunt
brings smiles to the faces of
countless children. As Easter
ushers in the season of spring
it brings a sense of freshness
and renewal that inspires many
to reaffirm the goodness of life
itself.
However Easter, in its very
essence, is a spiritual expres-
sion born in an historical event
so magnificent in its nature that
to this day challenges the imag-
ination and faith of numerous
people. For to believe in Easter



HolyW

By Chaplain Rita Love
NS Mayport Chapel
About 2000 years ago an
event occurred in the Middle
East that changed the world, and
the world would never be the
same again. In fact, we date our
calendars by this event. Every
time we write a date, we are
using the death and resurrec-
tion of Jesus Christ as the focal
point. A.D. and B.C. History
was split by this one event.
Holy Week is just as impor-
tant. We know the events hap-
pened to Jesus (e.g., the pro-
cession into Jerusalem (Palm
Sunday), the Last Supper
(Maundy Thursday), His death
on the cross (Good Friday), His
resurrection (Easter), so why
should we continue to observe
Holy Week? When we think
about the state of our economy,
in particular the escalation of
violence in our communities
and near our borders, we tend
to ask the question why? There
are many current stories that
convey the answer; I believe
this story captures the essences
of why the observance of Holy
Week is important for such a
time as these.
On Dec. 14, 1878, Prime
Minister, William Gladstone,
in announcing the death of
Princess Alice to the House of
Commons, told this touching
story. The little daughter of the
Princess was seriously ill with
diphtheria. And so the doc-
tors told the princess not to kiss
her because by kissing her she
would endanger her own life by
breathing in the child's breath.
Once when the child was
struggling to breathe, the moth-
er, forgetting herself entirely,
took the little one into her
arms to keep her from chok-
ing to death. Rasping and strug-
gling for her life, the child said,
"Momma, kiss me!" Without
thinking of herself, Princess
Alice tenderly kissed her daugh-
ter. And as a result she contract-
ed diphtheria herself and died
after some days."
Real love forgets self. Real
love knows no danger. Real
love doesn't count the cost.
Jesus gave his followers one
very specific instruction on how
to demonstrate the Christian
faith. It was in the upper room
the night before He was cru-
cified. We refer to it as Holy
Thursday or Maundy Thursday.
The word Maundy is from

is to believe in life itself. The
Easter story and its claim of res-

saying "I forgive you." If the
historical claim of Easter is true,
and I believe it is, then it shows

Jesus said I give you: Love one
another. As I have loved you, so
you must love one another. By
this will all people know that
you are my followers, if you
love one another" John 13:34-
36. In other words-Jesus is not
interested in what we achieve
or what we do but rather in our
motivation to love.
Holy Week is a marvel-
ous opportunity for Christian
growth. It offers incred-
ible potential to satisfy spiri-
tual hunger and to remind us to
love one another through acts
of kindness, forgiveness and
understanding. What affects one
eventually impacts us all-just
turn on the news.
While Christians anticipate
the events of Holy Week; the
Jews will begin preparing for
the Passover which begins April
8 at sundown until April 9. This
commemorates the fact when
the Jews left Egypt in a hurry,
and did not have time to allow
their bread to rise. Passover
can also be a symbolic way of
removing "arrogance and pride"
from one's life.
Greek Orthodox observance
of Holy Week begins April 12
and ends on April 19. I think one
of the main differences between
the Eastern Orthodox Easter,
and the Western date concern-
ing Easter is; Eastern Orthodox,
or Greek Orthodox Christians
will never celebrate Easter
before the Jewish Passover.
Because the Orthodox, believe
that Jesus celebrated Easter
before the "Pascha" (Easter.)
An Orthodox Christian believes
Easter will always fall after the
Jewish Passover, not before.
For the past 10 years, St John
Divine, Greek Orthodox Church
has invited Sailors to partici-
pate in Holy Week. All Sailors
are invited to participate in the
events. Sailors are asked to
wear their uniform to participate
in the burial and resurrection
of Jesus. The church is locat-
ed at 3850 Atlantic Blvd. For
additional information call 396-
5383. Finally, whether Christian
or Jew this time of year is an
opportunity for us all to medi-
tate and pray; for ourselves, for
our families, our communities,
for the economy and our coun-
try, as well as, for world peace,
to end hunger and war.

every


single heart captured by the
power of God's eternal source
of power for living. Yes, I am
confident that we can expect
a great deal out of Easter. I
believe that God wants us to!
I guarantee you that we are
not expecting too much out of
Easter if we ask God to help
us overcome all that is hinder-
ing our lives. The gospel of the
second chance restored a man
broken and despairing over his
personal act of betrayal. Simon
Peter embraced God's offer of
forgiveness and restoration and
his life was changed. I submit
that it is not too much to expect
the same miracle for us. Surely,
nothing, nothing is impossible
with God!!
The gospel of the second
chance teaches me that there
is no rock so deep that I can't
move it (with God's help). That
is, I can change for the better. I
can start life over. The Easter


story reminds me that there is
no dream so lost that I can't get
it back. God is the rebuilder of
broken dreams. While life may
have dealt me a bad hand I just
need to hang in long enough to
experience the restorative power
of God's grace. Don't give up!
The Easter account informs us
that there's no pain so great
that we can't endure it. I do
not know much about pain but
I have had some experiences.
In retrospect I have learned that
when life is at its worst, God
has put an invisible net under
me. I have found myself stand-
ing when I would rather run.
God's unrelenting promise has
been to give me what I need in
order to get through the experi-
ence.
So, this is the day to be
renewed and be rebuilt (inside
and out) by God's resurrection
power. This is the day that the
Lord has made. Happy Easter!

After months of preparation

Underwood, HSL-48 Det 2 Is Back


From USS Underwood Public I -
USS Underwood (FFG 36)
pulled back into homeport at
Naval Station Mayport April 4
after a six-month counter illicit
trafficking (CIT) deployment
to the Eastern Pacific with
embarked Helicopter Anti-
Submarine Squadron Light
48 Detachment Two, and U.S.
Coast Guard Law Enforcement
Detachment (LEDET) 101.
Underwood departed Mayport
Oct. 5, 2008, and transited
through the Panama Canal en
route to the Eastern Pacific.
The primary mission throughout
the deployment was drug inter-
diction in the Eastern Pacific,
and throughout the deployment
Underwood seized and disrupt-
ed more than 53,000 pounds of
contraband worth an estimated
street value of more than $1.6
billion.
The first three months of
deployment resulted in several
drug busts for Underwood as
well as an extremely successful
Theater Security Cooperation
(TSC) port visit to Golfito,
Costa Rica Nov. 18, 2008. In
an attempt to strengthen inter-
national relations between the
Costa Rican government and
the United States, Underwood
hosted a reception onboard with
the U.S. Ambassador to Costa
Rica and several Costa Rican
military and government offi-
cials. The guests took a tour of
the ship and attended a frocking
ceremony. Following the recep-
tion onboard the Costa Rican
government held their own
reception at a local hotel and
invited members of the ward-
room and crew.
The port visits also provid-
ed Underwood Sailors with

liberty and the opportunity to
interact with the host nations.
Underwood's Morale, Welfare,
and Recreation (MWR) set
up numerous trips during the
port visits for the crew to get
a chance to experience differ-
ent aspects of the host nations.
These trips included scuba div-
ing, white-water rafting, deep


sea fishing, city tours and
shopping, and volcano climb-
ing. Other port visits included
Panama City, Panama, Puerto
Quetzal, Guatemala, Acapulco,
Mexico, and Cartagena,
Colombia.
On Dec. 30, 2008, a potential
drug interdiction turned into a
rescue at sea when Underwood


recovered 43 SOLAS (Survival
of Life at Sea) survivors. As
Underwood approached the
vessel suspected of drug smug-
gling, Underwood's boarding
team discovered many battered
passengers whose nationali-
ties ranged from Ecuadorian,
Columbian and Chinese (PRC).
It was later determined that


these passengers had been adrift
for over a week with minimal
food and supplies. After it was
deemed that the fishing vessel
lacked sufficient fuel or food
to return to port, Underwood
executed its AMIO (Alien
Migrant Interdiction Operation)
plan, embarking all 43 survivors
including 14 females, 28 males,

and a 3 year old girl. Once on
board, each survivor was docu-
mented and processed before
being medically screened. The
following morning, through a
combination of helicopter oper-
ations and small boat transfers,
the 43 survivors were trans-
ferred over to the USNS Saturn
which had been supporting
Underwood during her Eastern
Pacific CIT deployment.
Several community relations
(COMREL) projects were con-
ducted throughout the deploy-
ment. In Golfito, Underwood
Sailors helped build classroom
walls for a local elementary
school, painted walls for a local
library, and distributed medi-
cal supplies to the local retire-
ment home. In Panama, proj-
ects included the renovation
of Casco Viejo, a poverty and
crime-stricken area in Panama,
as well as the refurbishment
of a Panamanian schoolhouse
located in the San Felipe area.
Towards the end of deployment
Underwood visited a Colombian
school in the Ternera neigh-
borhood of Cartagena, where
Sailors donated equipment
towards the school's recreation
department as well as attend-
ed a ceremony hosted by the
Colombian National Police
(CNP).
Underwood Sailors achieved
success on all levels, as a unit
and individually. During the
deployment 48 Sailors earned
their Enlisted Surface Warfare
Specialists (ESWS) pins.

SBR, HSL-60 Det 2 Return To Mayport


From USS Samuel B. Roberts'Public I" ,
Family and friends of Sailors aboard
USS Samuel B. Roberts (FFG 58)
gathered on the pier to welcome the
Sammy B back home April 6 from their
2008-2009 Counter Narcotic Terrorism
deployment.
Operating under the tactical con-
trol of Joint Inter-Agency Task Force-
South, Sammy B. traveled in support
of the Department of Defense and U.
S. Southern Command's role in the
fight against drugs. Their assistance
came in the form of support in intelli-
gence, detection and monitoring, train-
ing, planning, and communications
support.
To aid with the counter illicit
trafficking mission, the "Smooth
Operators" of HSL-60 Detachment 2
from Mayport embarked on Sammy
B. Also embarked were three separate
U.S. Coast Guard Law Enforcement
Detachments (LEDET) from Miami,
Florida; LEDETs 402, 403, and 408.
The first half of Sammy B's deploy-
ment began with a transit from
Mayport down to Panama, through
the Panama Canal, earning the crew
the Order of the Ditch citation. Once
through the canal, Sammy B imme-
diately began patrolling the Eastern
Pacific with great success.
By way of keen lookouts, inter-agen-
cy cooperation, high speed pursuits,
and the partnering of capable pilots and
Sailors, Sammy B. was able to make
five separate drug busts, capturing over
7.9 metric tons of cocaine, with a street
value of approximately $557 million.
In the process of patrolling, Sammy
B. received word of a vessel in dis-
tress, and thanks to some quick reac-
tion time, was able to safely recover
four Mexican fishermen whose vessel
had swamped. The fishermen were
later delivered to USCG authorities for
further transport back to Mexico.
During the first two and a half
months of deployment in the Pacific,
from Oct. 5- Dec. 12, the crew was
able to enjoy some well deserved time

off in the liberty port of Vasco Nunez
de Balboa, Panama City on multiple
occasions.
In November, one such port visit
was abruptly cut short as Sammy B
was ordered underway in support of
the humanitarian effort from severe


flooding in Panama. The "Smooth
Operators" stepped up to the plate and
flew multiple surveillance missions to
help determine the extent of the dam-
age.

USS Underwood
On March 27, Underwood Sailors embarked on
the final Community Relations (COMREL) proj-
ect of their 2008-2009 counter illicit trafficking
deployment.
Underwood Sailors delivered sports equip-
ment to the Colombian National Police's (CNP)
Cartagena office. The CNP sponsors the Colegio
Nuestra Senora De Fatima School, which is com-
prised of over 200 students ages 5 to 17. Located
in the Ternera neighborhood of Cartagena, the
school's primary focus is to provide an alternative
to drugs, violence and crime for the students.
"The equipment Underwood provided for the
school's sports and recreation department will go
a long way for the underprivileged students and
will help provide healthy and fun activities for
them," said Information Systems Technician 1st
Class (Surface Warfare/Aviation Warfare) Flores.
"I am humbled and honored to be able to provide
to the children and truly applaud the CNP for
their efforts in providing alternatives to crime."


This COMREL project marks the culmination
of six months of arduous, rewarding, and historic
achievements for Underwood. Their presence
in the Cartagena community serves to further
strengthen the relationship between the United
States and neighboring countries. Underwood
Sailors have displayed the highest qualities of
professionalism and demonstrated the utmost
respect towards host nations during the deploy-
ment. They have been fine representatives of the
Navy and continue to be a shining light in com-
munities abroad; making differences and chang-
ing lives.
Underwood, homeported in Mayport, Fla., is
currently deployed in Latin America under the
operational control of U.S. Naval Forces Southern
Command (NAVSO) and U.S. 4th Fleet, conduct-
ing counter illicit trafficking operations in support
of Joint Interagency Task Force-South (JIATF-S),
U.S. Law Enforcement and U.S. and participating
nations drug control policy.


SBR Strong Partners In Honduras


From USS Samuel B. Roberts Public

During a port visit in
Honduras, Sailors deployed with
USS Samuel B. Roberts (FFG
58) conducted several commu-
nity relations (COMREL) proj-
ects March 10-12.
Samuel B. Roberts and
embarked helicopter detach-
ment, Helicopter Anti-subma-
rine Squadron Light (HSL) 60,
Detachment 2, lent their servic-
es to a local elementary school
in Coxen Hola, a small island
off the coast of Roatan. The vol-
unteers painted four classrooms,
installed multiple ceiling fans
and assisted with general clean-
ing and repairs in the elemen-
tary school during the two-day
project.
One of the participants,
Ensign Nicholas Kutchak,
Samuel B. Roberts' combat
information center officer, felt
the community relations project
was very successful.


"We are out here on deploy-
ment helping to protect
America's interest abroad; how-
ever, this project allowed us
to expand our boundaries and
give the children of Honduras a
better environment in which to
learn and grow," said Kutchak.
The school, Elfreda Brooks
Primary School in Coxen Hole,
is a community-based public
bilingual school with 278 chil-
dren in grades 1 to 6. The school
has expanded in recent years
from two to four classrooms
thanks to the contributions from
local and international groups,
including other U.S. Navy ships
deployed in the area who have
conducted similar projects.
Additionally, Samuel B.
Roberts' crew donated to the
community Project Handclasp
medical items and toys for the
children. Medical and first
aid supplies were delivered to
Clinica Esperanze and Little
Friends Foundation. Children's


toys, including bikes, roller-
blades and yard games were
donated to the Honduran
Department of Education for
use in local schools such as
Elfreda Brooks Primary School.
Samuel B. Roberts also par-
ticipated in several other events
to improve community relations
with the people of Honduras.
On March 10, a group of 11
Honduran Sailors came aboard
the ship to compare and dis-
cuss each country's shipboard
lifestyle. Members of Samuel
B. Roberts' visit, board, search
and seizure (VBSS) teams gave
demonstrations of their boarding
techniques while the repair divi-
sion had an open house of dam-
age control gear and fire fight-
ing evolutions. The Honduran
Sailors even stayed overnight to
experience more of the Samuel
B. Roberts way of life.
On March 12, the ship opened
its brow to many officials of
Honduras for a tour of the


ship. The U.S. Ambassador to
Honduras, Hugo Llorens; the
Deputy of the Honduran Joint
Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Estado
Cuellar; the Deputy Chief of
the Honduran Navy, Capt. Ivis
Moreno; Roatan Mayor Dale
Jackson and many staff mem-
bers from the U.S. military
group were all guests on board
Samuel B. Roberts. While on
board, the guests were taught
about the ship's history to learn
a bit more about the guided-
missile frigate.
"It was a pleasure to have
these distinguished guests on
board to see our fine ship and
meet some of her crew," said
Cmdr. Chuck L. Sellers, Samuel
B. Roberts' commanding offi-
cer. "I am very proud of our
Sailors and glad that Samuel
B. Roberts was able to play a
role in building closer relations
between the United States and

Underwood Sailors

Enjoy Liberty In

Cartagena, Columbia


From USS Underwood Public Af-
fairs
Sailors from USS
Underwood (FFG 36)
enjoyed a three-day port
visit to Cartagena, Colombia
March 26-29 prior to com-
pleting a highly successful
counter illicit trafficking
(CIT) deployment in the
Latin America.
Cartagena, the largest
and most secure harbor on
the north coast of Colombia,
is located on the Caribbean
coast of Colombia and is
the country's main getaway
for sea trade. While in port,
Sailors participated in a com-
munity relations project,
Morale Welfare Recreation
(MWR) tours, and some well
deserved liberty.
Supporting the local com-
munity, Sailors volunteered
at a low-income school,
COLEGIO NUESTRA
SENORA DE FATIMA,
donating much needed sports
equipment and supplies.
From the Colombian Navy,
the wardroom and crew of
A.R.C. Antioquia (FM-53)
extended their hospital-
ity to Underwood's ward-
room by allowing an officer
function to be held in their
Officer's Club. Lt. Cmdr.
Cory Applebee, Underwood's
Executive Officer, men-
tioned, "The gracious hospi-
tality of A.R.C. Antioquia's
crew indicated the strong
relationship we share with
Colombia's Navy."

A city rich with history,
Cartagena offered sailors
numerous opportunities for
sight-seeing and souvenir
shopping. There was no
shortage of top-dining estab-
lishments to choose from,
many of which were located
in the historical Old City. In
the evening, street vendors,
musicians, and performers
would flood the Old City,
selling souvenirs or danc-
ing to traditional Colombian
music.
Underwood Sailors had
the option of spending a day
at the beach, enjoying vol-
leyball, music, and snor-
keling thanks to the MWR
team's dedicated service.
Boatswain's Mate Seaman
Juan Cano stated "It was
great having time to relax
and enjoy the beach." An
overall outstanding port visit
for Underwood, Cartagena
offered the crew a chance
to relax and enjoy South
American culture one last
time prior to making her jour-
ney home.
Underwood, homeported
in Mayport, Fla., was cur-
rently deployed in Latin
America under the opera-
tional control of U.S. Naval

About The Kids?, FFSC
Children who witness fam-

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.

USS Halyburton Hosts NATO Admiral


By Ensign Michael Hanna
USS Halyburton Public ,
USS Halyburton, assigned
to Standing NATO Maritime
Group 1 (SNMG-1), was priv-
ileged to host the Commander
of SNMG-1 while two of
Halyburton's Sailors were
exchanged for a visit of the
NRP Corte Real, a Portuguese
frigate.
SNMG-1 Commander, Rear
Adm. Jose Domingos Pereira
da Cunha was transported
from the Corte Real by HSL-
46 Detachment Two Grand
Masters Air Detachment to USS
Halyburton.
Commanding Officer, Cmdr.
Mike Huck, Executive Officer,
Cmdr. Eric Lindfors, and
CMDCM Mickey Riley greeted
the SNMG-1 commander and
his staff upon arrival.
Cunha and his staff were
given a tour of the ship fol-
lowed by a catered lunch pre-
pared by Halyburton's culi-
nary specialists. During lunch
the Halyburton Wardroom and
SNMG- 1 staff discussed mutual
mission objectives, shared sea
stories, and exchanged casual
conversation. Cunha went as

far to explain that his love for
the Portuguese football club FC
Porto was the inspiration for the


dragon on his commands crest.
After lunch, the crew assem-
bled on the flight deck for an


all hands call with the SNMG-1
Commander. Cunha introduced
himself, explained the objec-


tives and mission of SNMG-
1 while they were conducting
their out of area deployment,
and how Halyburton fit in as a
true force multiplier.
Cunha expressed his appre-
ciation for the hard work
Halyburton had already execut-
ed and wished Halyburton the
best as he set her out on task.
All the while, two of
Halyburton's own, Information
Systems Technician 1st Class
John Hunt and Information
Systems Technician 2nd Class
Melvin Scott cross-decked for
the afternoon and visited the
Corte Real.
Halyburton's Sailors were
given a tour of the ship and
experienced the differences
between the Spanish Navy's
way of life and our own while
out to sea. Our Sailors were
served a delicious Spanish style
lunch and then flown back to
Halyburton.
Scott expressed, "I was
truly grateful for the opportu-
nity to experience something
so unique. Even though the
everyday workings onboard the
Corte Real was different in so
many ways, it's a great feeling


to know we're all on the same
team."
Halyburton's Department
Heads and the Senior SNMG
Staff members worked dili-
gently during the visit to further
develop a robust plan that max-
imized all the groups' assets.
The result not only fully sup-
ported the SNMG-1 out-of-area
deployment requirements, but
also those of the Commander,
FIFTH Fleet.
Lt. Cmdr. Tony Mortimer,
Halyburton's Operations officer,
stated that, "the visit facilitated
an easy solution with all the key
parties in the same room and
not trying to kluge together an
operation via message traffic or
email and chat."
Halyburton continues to sup-
port Standing NATO Maritime
Group (SNMG-1) in the FIFTH
Fleet AOR.


Halyburton
By Ensign Michael Hanna
USS Halyburton Public 1" .
USS Halyburton, a Mayport, Florida
based frigate, assigned to Standard Nato
Maritime Group 1 (SNMG-1), foiled a
piracy attack in the Gulf of Aden while
deployed in support of C5F operations.
Halyburton received a late-evening dis-
tress call from a civilian yacht, reporting
that they were being attacked by pirates.
A group of seven pirates, armed with
AK-47s and a Rocket Propelled Grenade
(RPG) Launcher fired several shots in an
attempt to capture the vessel.
Within minutes of receiving the distress
call, one of Halyburtons SH-60B heli-
copters, piloted by HSL 46 Det 2 Grand
Masters Air Detachment, was launched to
assess the developing situation while the
ship made best speed to arrive on scene.
Halyburton's Visit, Board, Search, and
Seizure (VBSS) team prepared to board
and apprehend the suspect vessel if the
need arose.
HMDS Absalon, a Danish warship,
supported the mission by also quickly
launching one of their helicopters and
closing in on the position of the attack.
The prompt action, excellent teamwork,
and clear communication by all units in
SNMG-1, convinced the group of pirates
to give up their attack and flee the scene.

Klakring Hosts President of Republic of Georgia


By Ensign Peter Goodman
USS Klakring Public I"
USS Klakring (FFG 42) welcomed the President of Georgia,
Mikheil Saakashvili, for a recent shipboard April 2 while in port at
Batumi, Republic of Georgia.
The visit gave the president, a supporter of the United States, a
chance to visit with the crew and discuss the importance of a strong
United States Georgia relationship. Eight side-boys piped the
president aboard, where he was greeted by Klakring's Commanding
Officer, Cmdr. Scott M. Smith.
Along with the president, the United States Ambassador to the
Republic of Georgia, the Honorable John F. Tefft, and his wife
Mariella, visited the ship. The president and the ambassador dis-
cussed the importance of the ship's visit to Georgia and the grow-
ing relationship between the two countries.
"Our relationship with the United States is very important to us,"
said Saakashvili.
While in Batumi, the ship is hosting visits and participating in
theater security cooperation activities activities which develop
both nations' abilities to operate against common threats and create
a safer maritime environment.
Klakring, homeported in Mayport, Fla., is currently in the U.S.
Sixth Fleet area of responsibility during a regularly scheduled
deployment. It is assigned to Commander, Destroyer Squadron 14.

USS Robert G. Bradley
Sailors on deployment to
Africa with USS Robert G.
Bradley (FFG 49) arrived in
Civitavecchia, Italy April 1
for a four-day liberty port visit
after recently circumnavigating
Africa.
"Sailors were free to explore
the city on their own and do
whatever they chose to do,"
said Ensign Jeffrey Taves, the
ship's Morale, Welfare, and
Recreation (MWR) officer.
"About 95 percent of the crew
chose to spend at least part of
that time in Rome."
Sailors enjoyed Italy by visit-
ing many historical sites such
as the Coliseum and St. Peter's
Basilica in Vatican City. Many
took advantage of open-air bus
tours that stopped at many of
Italy's famous landmarks and
allowed them to get on and off
at sites as they chose.


SItaly
"My liberty buddies and I
went to the Spanish Steps, the
Coliseum, and the Vatican,"
said Aerographers Mate 3rd
Class Jonathan Graham. "It's a
beautiful country, and I'd like to
come back here because there is
so much to see."
Robert G. Bradley has
been deployed to the Africa
Command area of responsibil-
ity since Nov. 21 and has made
numerous port visits across
the African continent and the
Mediterranean Sea in support
of Africa Partnership Station
(APS) and Theater Security
Cooperation (TSC).
After Rome, Robert G.
Bradley will continue the
remaining two months of the
deployment with further TSC
engagements and multinational
exercises in the Mediterranean
Sea before crossing the
Atlantic Ocean and returning to
Mayport.

Klakring was in Ukraine as part of a six-month deployment
to help maintain maritime safety and security in the Black Sea
region.


US Strengthens

Ukraine Partnership


By Ensign Peter Goodman
USS Klakring Public .
USS Klakring (FFG 42) com-
pleted a scheduled port visit
here with a luncheon and recep-
tion held on board her flight
deck and hosted by the United
States Ambassador to Ukraine,
the Honorable William Taylor,
on March 27.
The visit to the Black Sea port
city strengthened the partnership
between these two countries and
was intended to help maintain
regional maritime stability and
security, a vital component of
the Chief of Naval Operations
(CNO) Maritime Strategy.
Beginning with a tour for the
ambassador and several senior
members of the Ukrainian
Navy, the ship hosted a lun-
cheon, award ceremony, and
an evening reception where the
Ambassador Taylor and Ukraine


Chief of Naval Operations, Vice
Admiral Ihor Tenyukh, dis-
cussed his country's hopes for
expanding the Ukraine Navy.
During the awards ceremo-
ny, the ambassador presented
Enlisted Surface Warfare
Specialist (ESWS) pins to
Information Systems Technician
1st Class Raymond Doyle and
Cryptologic Technician 2nd
Class (AW) Richard Howell,
and the Navy and Marine
Corps Achievement Medal to
Operations Specialist 3rd Class
Timothy Tingle.
For Howell, a Richmond,
Virginia native, receiving his
pin was the reward for months
of hard work.
"It was nice to be recognized,
[especially] with the ambas-
sador presenting the awards in
front of our divisions," he said.
"I am just thrilled."

he had to figure it out from
catch. No one was really sure
what to make of this position.
He was responsible for initiat-
ing the Command Master Chief
program throughout the Navy to
ensure proper enlisted leader-
ship and representation."
Once the barracks is at full
capacity, they will house more
than 500 Sailors. Occupants will
have their own bedroom and
share a common area with one
other person, which will feature
a television, microwave, stove

and refrigerator.
"[Black] was quoted as saying
'The Navy is and always will
be a part of my family. I never
consider myself retired from the
Navy, just less active. Anything
I can do to help Sailors, it is my
privilege to do, and I always
will,'" Davidson said. "For the
Sailors that live in this barracks,
we hope they feel his presence."
Personnel are currently being
transitioned from the ships'
berthing to the barracks.

of the Sailors, their performance
was nothing short of outstand-
ing," said Command Senior
Chief Matthew T. Miesle.
"They were highly success-
ful with the drug seizures and
humanitarian rescues represent-
ed Underwood in a highly pro-
fessional manner in every port
visit; many volunteering their
free time to help several coun-
tries during multiple commu-
nity relation projects. These are
great Americans serving their
country, and should be proud of


their accomplishments over the
last six months."
During the deployment,
Underwood was under opera-
tional control of U.S. Naval
Forces Southern Command
(NAVSO)/U.S. 4th Fleet con-
ducting counter-illicit traf-
ficking operations for Joint
Interagency Task Force-South
in the U.S. Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM) Area of Focus
(AOF). Once the ship returned
to Mayport, U.S. 2nd Fleet took
over operational control.

accustomed to Sammy B, and
embraced her legacy of "No
Higher Honor."
In December, the Sammy
B returned to Mayport for a
planned maintenance period,
which allowed the ship to be
outfitted with the necessary
tools to ensure a successful sec-
ond half of its deployment.
On Dec. 27, Sammy B once
again began the trek south to
interdict drug runners, remain-
ing in the Western Caribbean to
conduct its operations.
Throughout the second half
of deployment, Sammy B
enjoyed port visits in Colon,
Panama, Cozumel, Mexico, and
Cartagena, Columbia. While in
Cartagena, the Sammy B. host-
ed the Director of the Columbia
Naval Academy, Adm. Ordonez
onboard for a tour with 12
Columbian Ensigns.
Throughout the second half,
Sammy B. worked closely with
the Columbian Navy on several
occasions which was rewarding
and helped to strengthen U.S.
relations with Columbia.
Each nation was able to assist
the other in the detainment of
narcotics, as well as support
multiple search and rescue oper-
ations.
Samuel B. Roberts' Visit
Board Search and Seizure Team
directly assisted the LEDET in


boarding two vessels, which
was a great opportunity for the
VBSS team to assist in counter-
ing the drug traffic in the west-
ern Caribbean and strengthen
their boarding skills.
Additionally, Sammy B host-
ed U.S. Army aviators from
Joint Task Force-Bravo onboard
to support the unit in their deck
landing qualifications and giv-
ing the flight deck crew of
Sammy B. the opportunity to
hone their skills by diversifying
their flight deck evolutions.
Sammy B. continued her
work in the Caribbean until it
was time to pull into Roatan,
Honduras for some well-
deserved liberty. While at
anchor, Sailors spent two days
engaged in a community rela-
tions project with Elfreda
Brooks Primary PROHECO
School in Coxen Hole, Roatan,
a community-based public
bilingual school for 278 chil-
dren grades 1-6.
In addition to community
service, Sammy B, hosted 12
Sailors from the Honduran
Navy aboard for two days of
VBSS demonstrations, Damage
Control practical, and the abil-
ity to experience what life is
like as a Sammy B, Sailor.

minated in a friendly soccer
game and ceremony, at which
time Sammy B, donated many
Project Handclasp items to local
schools and clinics.
The port visit also included a
visit and tour of the ship by the
U.S. Ambassador to Honduras,
several officials, members of
the Honduran Navy, the Mayor
of Roatan, and members of
the U.S. Military Group in
Honduras. Sammy B was truly
honored by the visit and proudly
showed off the hard work of the
crew to keep her in top shape.
She beamed with pride as she
displayed her rich history and
top notch crew.
During the lingering weeks
of deployment, Sammy B, ven-
tured north for one last liberty
port visit in the Grand Cayman
Islands, a welcome reward
for six long months at sea. On
April 4, 42 Tigers, comprised
of crew friends and fam-
ily members, joined the ship in
Port Everglades, Florida for a
two day Tiger Cruise that gave
Tigers the opportunity to sam-
ple the life on board the Sammy
B. Six months and one day
after departing Naval Station
Mayport, the Sailors and Tigers
of Samuel B. Roberts manned
the rails for an emotional and
much anticipated homecoming
ceremony.

CWO5 Hicks Retires After 31 Years Of Service


F. "
Chief Warrant Officer Lana
Hicks, the Navy's first African
American female CWO5 retired
April 3 after 31 years of naval
service.
Hicks said that during her
tenure in the Navy, the big-
gest change she has seen is
the opportunities available for
women.
"When I joined in 1978 there
were very few non administra-
tive rates open to women," she
said. "We were not allowed into
ratings that involved combat.
There was very limited oppor-
tunity for us to go to sea. I
started out as a Corpsman and
had to change rates because the
rating was overmanned with
women. In the early 80s, we
couldn't go to ships or with
the Marines so I had to change
rates. That's why I became an
Aviation Electrician's Mate. I
can remember when the first
women went to aircraft carri-
ers and the Navy opened more
rates for us. Now women fly
in combat; are CO's of fighter
squadrons and ships."
Hicks said that she thinks


CWO5 Lana Hicks
Sailors should take advantage
of "every opportunity the Navy
has to offer," including educa-
tion.
"Decide early if the Navy is
going to be your career," she
said. "If you decide to Stay
Navy find out what's required
to be successful in your field
and do it. The Navy is downsiz-
ing and keeping only the best
people. Advancement is very
competitive and it requires extra
effort to get promoted. Find
a good mentor. Listen to what
they say. I've had several and


the advice they gave me was
key to my success."
Those mentors and the Navy
have taught her several life
lessons, including discipline,
teamwork, goal setting and con-
fidence.
"I've learned that when we
work together any task can be
accomplished. You can't do it
alone," she said.
"Being a mentor and know-
ing that I may have contributed
to the success of Sailors that
I've served with [is the most
rewarding aspect of being in the
Navy]," she said. "What I think
is rewarding is being able to
help a Sailor get the orders they
want, helping good performers
get promoted by giving career
advice and being the kind of
officer that Sailors want to ask
for help or advice. What the
Navy gave to me, I was able to
give back."
Another rewarding aspect of
the Navy is the relationships she
has developed, she said.
"When you are deployed or
stationed overseas the Sailors
you work with are like family,"
Hicks added. "I don't think that


happens in the civilian com-
munity. One of the things I'll
really miss about the Navy is
the camaraderie."
Hicks enlisted in the United
States Navy as a Hospital
Corpsman in February 1978,
she attended Recruit Training
Command (RTC), Orlando
Fla. After RTC, she attended
and graduated with honors from
Hospital Corps "A" School.
Later that year, she reported to
Naval Regional Medical Center,
Portsmouth Va. In February
1980 she transferred to Naval
Hospital Roosevelt Roads,
PR where she qualified as an
Emergency Medical Technician
and worked in the Emergency
Room. She was discharged
in March 1982 and reported
to MEDCRU 119 as an active
reservist in April 1982.
In 1982 she came back on
active duty and reported to RTC,
Orlando as a NAVET. After
attending Aviation Electrician's
Mate "A" School in Millington,
TN, she was assigned to NAF
Diego Garcia, AIMD where
she completed a one year tour.
In 1985 she was assigned to


TACAMO, (VQ-3) "Ironmen"
in Barber's Pt, HI. During this
tour of duty she advanced to
First Class Petty Officer and
obtained several maintenance
qualifications.
In 1988 she transferred to
NAS Moffett, AIMD where she
was a Work Center
Leading Petty Officer, Quality
Assurance Representative,
Micro-miniature
Repair Tech, and earned
her designation as an Enlisted
Aviation Warfare
Specialist. In 1991 she
reported to (VQ-1), World
Watchers, where she qualified
as Maintenance Control Chief
and earned her Safe for Flight
designation. She was select-
ed and pinned as a Chief Petty
Officer in 1992.
In 1993 she reported for
another year tour at NAF Diego
Garcia, AIMD which was cut
short when she was selected as
a Chief Warrant Officer. She
reported to AIMD Key West,
FL for eight months while she
awaited her commissioning
date.
In 1995, Hicks commissioned


and after attending Mustang
University, Pensacola, FL she
reported to (VQ-2) Rota Spain.
While assigned she served as
Detachment Maintenance
Officer and Avionics and
Aircraft
Division Officer and did mul-
tiple deployments throughout
Europe. In
1998 she reported to USS
Tarawa (LHA-1) home ported
at Naval Station 32nd St, San
Diego.
She reported to HSL-47 in
2001. During the tour she com-
pleted a Bachelor's of Arts
degree at National University.
In 2004, Hicks reported to HS-7
"Dusty Dogs." In 2008 she was
assigned to the "Airwolves" of
HSL-40, where she served as
Assistant Maintenance Officer
and Material Control Officer.
While assigned she completed
a Master of Arts degree and
was recognized as HSL-40's
Maintenance Officer of the
Year.


DESRON 14 Bids 'Fair Winds' To Capt. Madden


By Bill Austin
PA O
"This is a day 35 years in the
making that culminates a career
of selfless sacrifice, honor,
courage and commitment,"
said DESRON 14 Commodore
Glenn Zeiders, as he spoke to
a packed room of family and
friends at the retirement cer-
emony of Captain John L.
Madden III on April 3.
Zeiders spoke about his retir-
ing Deputy Commander with
words that rang with sincer-
ity and gratitude for a job well
done. "I relied daily on his
advice, and I can honestly say
that the ships in the squadron
are in a higher state of readiness
thanks to Captain Madden,"
said Zeidrers.
Madden, who hails from
Livingston, New Jersey, began
his journey to his retirement
ceremony with an education
from the Naval Academy where
he earned a Bachelor of Science
degree in International Security
Affairs and earned his commis-
sion in 1979.
After school, he reported to
the USS Butte (AE 27) where he
served as Combat Information
Officer and Second Division
Officer in Deck Department.
In 1982, he reported to the
USS Jessie L. Brown (FF 1089)
as Combat Information Center


Officer where he completed
a UNITAS deployment and a
West African Training Cruise.
He then transferred to Navy
Recruiting District, New Jersey
and served as Officer Programs
Officer until 1986.
Upon completion of
Department Head School, he
was assigned as Operations
Officer on the USS Elmer
Montgomery (FF 1082) where
he completed a Persian Gulf
deployment that included com-
bat action against Iranian Naval
Forces.
He transferred to the staff
of Destroyer Squadron Eight
in 1988 as Operations Officer
and Scheduler. He reported to
USS Aubrey Fitch (FFG 34) as
Executive Officer in 1992 and
deployed on an extended coun-
ter-drug operation.
Upon completion of his
Executive Officer tour he
attended the Naval War College
and received a Master's degree
in Security and Strategic
Studies.
In 1994 he was assigned
to the U. S. Transportation
Command where he served
as CINC briefer and Team
Chief in the J3/J4 Operations/
Logistics Directorate, respon-
sible for planning, coordinating
and monitoring global strategic


transportation operations.
Madden reported as Deputy
Commander and subsequently
Commander, Afloat Training
Group, Mayport in 1997. In
2001, he reported to Fleet
Training Center, Mayport as
Commanding Officer.
In May 2003, he transferred
to Commander Naval Surface
Group Two as Operations
Officer and then as Chief
of Staff. In August 2004,
he reported to Destroyer
Squadron Fourteen as Deputy
Commander.
The ceremony, as in other
naval ceremonies, was filled
with plenty of pomp and cir-
cumstance appropriate for a
man who attributed his success
in the Navy to the Sailors he
served with along the way.
"Collectively, everyone in
this room and countless others
are the reason I am standing
here today," said Madden. "I
can now leave the Navy know-
ing it's in good hands."
Before closing his remarks
at the podium, Madden looked
to his two children Sean and
Emily and paid an emotional
tribute to his late wife by say-
ing, "Although your mother
cannot physically be here today,
her presence here is undeniable.
She will always be your guard-
ian angel."

Farragut Celebrates Women's History


By Ensign Melanie Stolzenberg
USS Farragut PAO
USS Farragut (DDG 99) held a program
to celebrate Women's History Month on
March 25 at the Ocean Breeze Conference
Center.
This year's Women's History Month
theme is "Women Taking the Lead to Save
Our Planet."
Chief Culinary Specialist Wendell
Heyward, USS Farragut Command
Managed Equal Opportunity Officer, invit-
ed Katrina E. McCray, the principal of
Mayport Middle School, to be guest speak-
er for this event.
McCray, originally from Monrovia,
California, enlisted in the Air Force after
high school as an Aircrew Life Support
Specialist. This rating allowed her to train
aircrew members on land and water sur-
vival techniques.
She said her favorite memory of her time
in the Air Force was when she participated
in "Operation Babylift" during the evacua-
tion from Vietnam, when she helped trans-
port orphaned children from Vietnam and
process them for adoption in the United
States. She said she enjoyed the feeling of
having a direct impact on someone else's
life and looked for similar opportunities in
her future careers.
ooo


After she got out of the Air Force,
McCray earned a Bachelor of Science
in Electronic Engineering and became
employed by Hughes Aircraft Missile
Systems Division, where she served as a
member of the Space Defense Initiative
Star Wars program. She later earned a
Master of Science degree in Elementary
Education and taught mathematics at Twin
Lakes Academy Middle School, where she
was selected as Teacher of the Year, and at
Fletcher High School.
In 2005 she earned a Master of Education
in Education Leadership and became
Assistant Principal at Fletcher High School,
then went on to become Principal of
Mayport Middle School.
In light of women's history, McCray's life
and career illustrate many of the challenges
women have faced since the early 1970s,
which is when women were first allowed to
join the Armed Services.
She discussed the difficulties of being
both a mother and holding down a career;
eventually she made the choice to leave
her highly competitive job as an engineer
to be a full-time mom. When she became
involved with her second career as a teach-
er, she chose to pursue advanced degrees so
that she could take on more leadership roles
in the education system. She stressed her


commitment to the students as a keystone
for her success as a leader.
McCray believes that she is saving the
planet one child at a time, by striving to
improve her school and the community her
students live in.
Farragut Commanding Officer, Cmdr.
Philip Sobeck, reminded the crew that
he holds a similar philosophy for USS
Farragut: that we are all leaders and are all
committed to each individual Sailor's suc-
cess.
McCray's life story and discussion of
leadership and values was entertaining and
motivational, and the crew of USS Farragut
looks forward to strengthening the ties with
the local community and Mayport Middle
School.
