On May 17, 1987, 37 USS
Stark Sailors were killed
when two missiles struck the
ship without warning after

on patrol in the southern
Persian Gulf. This year, our
guest speaker will be Rear
Adm. Joseph D. Kernan,
Commander, U.S. Naval
Forces Southern Command
and Commander, U.S. 4th
Fleet. In the event of inclem-
ent weather, the ceremony
will be held inside the ATG

By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service
The Department of Veterans
Affairs is ready to begin accept-
ing sign-ups for the Post-
9/11 GI Bill and the Defense
Department is working to get
word out on its proposed policy
regarding the bill's transferabil-
ity provisions to help service-
members decide if the new ben-
efit is right for them.
Bob Clark, the Pentagon's
assistant director for accessions
policy, called the Post-9/11 GI
Bill that takes effect Aug. 1 an
important new benefit. In addi-
tion to providing broader edu-
cational benefits, it includes a


provision that enables enroll-
ees to transfer their benefits to
immediate family members.
This long-sought-after provi-
sion is expected to be a boom
for the military, Clark said,
attracting and retaining the
skilled force it needs.
"The Post-9/11 GI Bill is
going to be an extremely good
benefit to attract bright, young
Americans to serve in the mili-
tary," he said.
"The transferability is going
to be a tool that will allow us
to retain members who have
earned that great benefit and
share it with their family mem-
bers and continue to serve,"


Clark said. "This gives them the
opportunity to share those ben-
efits that they have earned with
those they love."
The rules for Post-9/11 GI
Bill transferability are in the
final stages, and Clark said the
Defense Department expects
few changes, if any.
In a nutshell, any enlisted or
commissioned member of the
armed forces serving on active
duty or in the Selected Reserve
on or after Aug. 1 will be eli-
gible to transfer their benefits
- as long as they qualify for the
Post-9/11 GI Bill in the first
place and meet specific service
requirements, Clark explained.


He emphasized that, by law,
anyone who has retired or sepa-
rated from the service before
that date even if it's July 31
- won't be entitled to transfer
their benefits.
Also excluded will be mem-
bers of the Individual Ready
Reserve and Fleet Reserve.
Most servicemembers who
have at least six years of mili-
tary service as of Aug. 1 and
agree to serve an additional four
years qualify, he said.
But the Defense Department
has proposed measures to cover
several categories of service-
members whose circumstances
don't fit neatly into this formu-

USS Robert G. Bradley
Cmdr. Timothy F. Sparks relieved
Cmdr. Clinton A. Carroll as
Commanding Officer of USS Robert
G. Bradley (FFG 49) on May 1 on
the flight deck of the ship while on
deployment to the Sixth Fleet Area
of Responsibility. Gen. William E.
"Kip" Ward, Commander, U.S. Africa
Command was the guest speaker for
the event. His presence highlighted the
importance ofAfrica Partnership Station
(APS) / Theater Security Cooperation
(TSC) missions, the Navy's tremendous
contribution to these missions, and the
outstanding performance of Robert G.
Bradley on her APS/TSC deployment.
A native of Virginia Beach, Va.,
Carroll graduated from the Naval
Academy in May 1989 with a Bachelor
of Science in Political Science.
Carroll assumed command of Robert
G. Bradley Nov. 2, 2007. Previously
he was a student at the National War
College in Washington D.C. and was on
the Navy Quadrennial Defense Review
Staff from Nov. 2004 July 2006. His
next assignment is with the Joint Staff
in the Directorate of Operations (J3) as
the Global Strike Branch Chief.
In his remarks, Carroll stated, "I
leave today with both a sense of great
satisfaction and sadness after the most
personally rewarding tour of my 20
years of service. I will miss RGB
beyond words and I feel privileged to
have been allowed the opportunity to
command some of the finest Sailors I
have ever known."
A native Texan, Sparks enlisted in
the Navy in 1986 and attended the U.S.
Naval Academy Preparatory School in
1987. He graduated from the United
States Naval Academy in 1991 with
a Bachelor of Science degree in ocean-
ography. He earned a Master of Arts
degree in National Security Affairs
(Strategic Planning) from the Naval
Postgraduate School in 1997. Sparks
joined Robert G. Bradley in Sept. 2008
as the ship's Executive Officer. He was
previously assigned to the Pentagon on
the Chief of Naval Operations Staff in
the Strategy and Policy Division.
"It has been a privilege to serve as the
Executive Officer under Commander
Carroll's leadership," said Sparks. "I
look forward to the challenges that lay
ahead as Commanding Officer and con-
tinuing to serve with this great crew." In
his remarks, General Ward stated, "As
you know, a warship is a direct reflec-
tion of its Commanding Officer. From
the moment that I knew that Robert G.
Bradley would be coming to the U.S.
Africa Command's area of responsibil-
ity, I was certain of one thing, that she
was ably led and would do remarkable
things."
Robert G. Bradley is homeported
in Mayport, FL and is wrapping up a
six month deployment that has seen
the ship circumnavigate Africa. The
ship is in Souda Bay for Phoenix
Express 2009, an annual multi-lateral
North African exercise led by the U.S.
Navy and supported by allied partners
designed to strengthen the interoper-
ability between the Maghreb, Europe,
and the U.S.

CO Column


Two days ago we closed
out the 50th anniversary of
UNITAS GOLD and I have to
tell you how pleased I am with
everyone who did some major
heavy lifting to pull this event
off. From our counterparts at
NAVSO and 4th Fleet, to our
Harbor Operations folks get-
ting ships in port and under-
way, this team of profession-
als that work here on the best
base in the Navy really shined.
Your efforts were remarkable,
and you are now a part of his-
tory as this event is indeed his-
torical. Thanks to everyone for
your hard work and dedication.
If you haven't had a chance to
do so, today is the last day to
visit the Chilean Frigate Blanco
moored up at the Jacksonville
North bank Riverfront near the
landing. Free tours run from 1-8
p.m.
Last week we welcomed a
visit by our boss Rear Admiral
Townsend G. Alexander and he
had a chance to see first hand
the talent you bring to the table


Capt. Aaron Bowman
each day and he met several of
you along the tour route. Thanks
to everyone who had a hand in
arranging his visit, he was very
impressed with your profession-
alism and the look of the base.
We are two days into our hur-
ricane preparedness exercise,
HURREX/Citadel Gale 09
which will continue until May
14. The purpose of this annual
exercise is to best prepare us
to respond to weather threats


and to deploy forces even under
the most adverse weather condi-
tions. The drill will also include
reviewing and exercising heavy
weather instructions and proce-
dures as well as fully account-
ing for Sailors and Navy fami-
lies through the Navy Family
Accountability and Assessment
System (NFAAS). Don't wait
until hurricane season to prepare
your family. Make sure you are
"hurricane ready" and plan now
where you will evacuate in case
we need to do so. We came
real close last year to evacuat-
ing the base and were within
hours of making that decision
until a couple of storms veered
off to the north. If the decision
to evacuate is made, there is no
option to stay on base and you
will have to vacate quickly so
please have a game plan ready.
On May 15, more than 300
reunion members from the
Franklin D. Roosevelt will be
on base to commission phase
two of their memorial at Stark
Park. The FDR was a Mayport


ship and decommissioned in
1977. They will arrive by bus
and most of them will be at our
crosswalk entering the park on
foot so please be careful as you
drive around the base that morn-
ing.
On May 17 at 10 a.m., we will
remember those who were tragi-
cally killed aboard USS Stark
(FFG 31) when it was hit by
Iraqi missiles 22 years ago. This
year, our guest speaker will be
Rear Adm. Joseph D. Kernan,
Commander, U.S. Naval
Forces Southern Command and
Commander, U.S. 4th Fleet. In
the event of inclement weath-
er, the ceremony will be held
inside the ATG auditorium.
Each year we hold this service
and if you haven't attended one
you should. Survivors of that
day always attend, and its an
honor to host them and be a part
of remembering their lost ship-
mates right along with them.
Big thanks to the generos-
ity of everyone who contribut-
ed during this year's Navy and


Marine Corps Relief Society
fund drive. Although the drive
officially ends on May 15, we
have raised $214,000 to date
and our goal was $200,000.
Last year, Mayport assisted
nearly 1,500 clients and pro-
vided loans and grants totaling
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 while the drive
is still on.
Today is the first day of
the TPC golf tournament and
remember active duty military
and retirees get in the gates
absolutely free after 3 p.m.
There will also be a hospitality
tent available between the 16th
and 18th fairways for military
and their families.
Couple of notes on the
beach now that warm weather


has finally come. Please keep
it nice for all of us and clean
up more than you brought,
please keep pets on leashes at
all times, please fish only north
of the Chief's Club and swim
south of the Chief's club, and if
you see any signs of turtles or a
stranded animal, please contact
security immediately. There
have already been several turtles
nests in Jacksonville beach and
our first one will likely be any
day. If you go past the poles at
Hanna Park, you will be chal-
lenged to show an ID coming
back on the Naval Station.
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.

USS Underwood Enters Dry Dock


From USS Underwood Public Affairs
USS Underwood entered
Atlantic Marine dry dock for
a scheduled two-month CNO
Dry docking Selected Restricted
Availability (DSRA) on April
10, only six days after returning
from a highly successful six-
month Counter-Narco Terrorism
deployment to the Eastern
Pacific.


As families reunited with their
loved ones many Underwood
Sailors were making prepara-
tions to enter the dry docking
facility.
Sailors spent countless hours
over the weekend and during
the extremely busy work week
to make this dry docking pos-
sible. With an unusual schedule
and extremely short time frame


between the end of deploy-
ment and the yard period it took
teamwork and dedication from
the entire crew to switch gears
and focus on the new and chal-
lenging task at hand.
"It was difficult having to
focus on going into dry dock
when coming home to see fam-
ily and friends," said Ensign
Devall, "but we faced challeng-


es all deployment and prevailed,
successfully, and the crew did
an outstanding job to make all
this possible."
USS Underwood will remain
in dry dock for the next two
months at which time the ship
and crew will return to Naval
Station Mayport for continued
maintenance.


Tickets are now on sale for
this year's Battle of Midway
Commemoration Dinner,
which will be held June 6, at
the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville
Downtown.
Guest speaker General
James N. Mattis, NATO's
Supreme Allied Commander
for Transformation and
Commander, United States Joint
Forces Command and other vet-
erans of the Battle of Midway
will also attend this year's din-
ner.
Come meet these "National
Treasures" and hear their adven-
tures first hand.
Mattis is the highest military
authority in NATO, for promot-
ing and overseeing the continu-
ing transformation of Alliance
forces and capabilities and is
dual-hatted as Commander of
the U.S. Joint Forces Command,
which is responsible for maxi-
mizing future and present mili-
tary capabilities of the United
States.
His command is exer-
cised from the Headquarters
of Alliance Command
Transformation in Norfolk,
Virginia, United States, which
is also where U.S. Joint Forces
Command has its Headquarters.
The Navy League of Mayport is
hosting the dinner.

Ships from countries participating in Exercise Unitas Gold take part in a parade of ships just off the
coast of Jacksonville. The Jacksonville area hosted maritime forces from Argentina, Brazil, Canada,
Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Germany Mexico, Peru, the United States and Uruguay for the 50th itera-
tion of the annual multinational maritime exercise.


To A Close


By MC2 Ron Kuzlik
Commander, U.S. Naval Forces South-
ern Command U.S 4th Fleet Public

UNITAS Gold, the 50th itera-
tion of the longest running mul-
tinational exercise in the world
came to a close May 4, follow-
ing more than two weeks of
realistic training scenarios by
the United States and partner
maritime forces and observers
from Argentina, Brazil, Canada,
Chile, Colombia, Ecuador,
Dominican Republic, Germany,
Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay.
A Parade of Ships entered
Mayport harbor as friends,
families, dignitaries and specta-
tors watched sailors dressed in
their whites manning the rails
of more than a dozen warships
representing their respective
navies.
During the 16-day exercise,
more than 25 ships, 4 subma-
rines, 50 aircraft, and 7,000
Sailors and Marines took part
in training tailored to address a
variety of mission specific areas
including live-fire exercises,
undersea warfare, shipboard
operations, maritime interdic-
tion operations, air defense and
surface warfare, amphibious
operations, electronic warfare,
and special warfare.
The ongoing exercise is


designed to train the partici-
pating forces in a variety of
maritime scenarios, with each
operating as a component of a
multinational force, and provid-
ing the maximum opportunity
to improve interoperability.
Capt. Rudy Laco,
Commodore, Destroyer
Squadron 40, emphasized the
importance of UNITAS Gold
and other multinational exer-
cises.
"All of the navies are learning
from the multi-mission exer-
cise. We're establishing a com-
mand and control infrastructure
to run scenarios which we may
encounter in a real time envi-
ronment," he said.
"We have been able to get
underway from day one sort-
ing 18 ships, establishing a com-
mand and control network and
accomplishing multiple taskings
including a photo exercise and
an MIO (Maritime Interdiction
Operations) boarding."
Chief of Naval Operations
Adm. Gary Roughead has
emphasized strengthening and
cultivating relationships while
continuing to operate as a joint
and combined force.
"The Navy will remain a
powerful component of joint
warfare by exploiting cutting-
edge technology and cooper-

UNITAS Gold


Replenishmer
By MC2 Class Alan Gragg and U.S. Coast
Guard Petty Officer Seth Johnson
COMUSNAVSO and U.S. Coast Guard
Maritime forces participating in UNITAS Gold
practiced maritime interdiction operations (MIO)
and replenishment-at-sea (RAS) techniques April
26.
UNITAS Gold is in the 50th performance of the
annual, multinational partnership-building exer-
cise, which provides the opportunity to conduct
and assimilate joint and combined land, maritime,
coastal and air-operations in a realistic training
environment.
As the primary replenishment asset during the
RAS exercise, German Navy Combat Support
Ship Frankfurt Am Main (A-1412) supported
RAS drills conducted by the Mexican Frigate
ARM Mina (F-214) and multipurpose ship ARM
Oaxaca (PO-161), the amphibious transport dock-
ing ship USS Mesa Verde (LPD-19) and the guid-
ed missile destroyer USS Donald Cook (DDG-
75)
Following the RAS, a boarding team consisting
of Mexican marine commandos began a maritime
interception operation (MIO) exercise by flying
over the Frankfurt am Main in a Mexican HH-65
helicopter and notifying the ship of their inten-
tions to come aboard and search for prohibited
items.
"We're making this a challenge for the teams


Practice MIO,


it At Sea
boarding the vessel," said Lt. Cmdr. Patrick
Rolofs, executive officer of Frankfurt am Main
by changing crew member's names and identi-
fication cards, so when the boarding team came
aboard they would have a difficult time conduct-
ing the search. This would help simulate pos-
sible obstacles the boarding team may face while
conducting interdiction operations in a real-world
situation..
Three marine commandos hovered over the
flight deck of Frankfurt am Main, and fast-roped
down to begin the search. After securing the
vessel, members of a Mexican Navy boarding
team came alongside the Frankfurt am Main, and
climbed aboard the Jacob's ladder to search for
hidden contraband.
After the boarding team sorted through the
crewmember identification confusion, they
searched the cargo compartments for contraband.
After searching several compartments, the board-
ing team found the simulated illegal items and the
interdiction was a success. The entire operation
took less than two hours to complete.
Naval forces and observers from Argentina,
Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican
Republic, Ecuador, Germany, Mexico, Peru,
Uruguay and the United States are participating
in this year's exercise from April 20 through May
7 off the coast of Jacksonville, Fla.

UNITAS Gold Welcomes Mexican Navy For SINKEX


By MC2
Brandon Shelander
Commander, U.S. Naval Forces South-
ern Command- U.S 4th Fleet Public

The Mexican patrol vessel
ARM Oaxaca (PO-161) partici-
pated along with ships from 11
nations in the sinking exercise
(SINKEX) of the former ex-
USS Connelly (DD 975) April
29 during UNITAS Gold.
"Fuego!" says a mechanic
voice over a radio as a loud
boom echoes across the Atlantic
Ocean, followed by another
and another in a rapid series.
Distant, soundless splashes rise
into the air where the shells
from a 76/62mm naval cannon
mark their entry into the rough
blue water during the SINKEX.
Practice firing the main
cannon on board the Armada
de Mexico (ARM) Oaxaca
(PO-161) is nothing new for
Oaxaca's Commanding Officer
Efren Gomez Luis. What is
new for him and his
crew is the chance to train
and work with 11 navies at once
during UNITAS Gold, an annu-
al maritime exercise that pro-
vides a rigorous training envi-
ronment in which participating
nations conduct joint and com-
bined operations in a realistic
scenario.
"Personally, UNITAS is a
great learning opportunity for
me and my crew, something
I've wanted to do for a long
time," said Luis, on the bridge
of Oaxaca while watching the
horizon with large binoculars.
An English speaking voice
comes through the radio, some-
one from USS Donald Cook
(DDG-75).
They relay course informa-
tion and Oaxaca's radioman,
a young officer fresh from
Mexico's naval academy, replies
in English. Oaxaca's finished
its practice firing and will reset
course to a position with the
other ships. In front of Oaxaca,
four ships make an orderly line,
and behind, five more, all sail-
ing in formation for UNITAS
Gold.
UNITAS Gold is a two-week
exercise with realistic scenario-
driven training opportunities
featuring live-fire exercises,

participants and observers this year include Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Germany, Mexico, Peru, the United States and
Uruguay.


undersea warfare, shipboard
operations, maritime interdic-
tion operations, anti-air and
anti-surface warfare, amphibi-
ous operations, electronic war-
fare, and special warfare. In
total, over 25 ships, four sub-
marines and more than 50 air-
craft have participated.
The primary goal of the train-
ing is to promote maritime
security and stability as well as
interoperability between partner
nations. This year is the first


time Mexico has participated.
Its assets in the exercise include
the offshore patrol vessel, ARM
Oaxaca (PO-161) and frigate,
ARM Mina (F-214).
"I feel very happy to be in
this very important event. Our
training has become stronger, as
well as our capacity in stopping
narco-trafficking and in defense
of our national territories," Luis
said.
The crew of the ARM Oaxaca
echoed the sentiments of their


commanding officer.
"I'm very proud to be in
UNITAS," said Teniente de
Corbeta (Lt.) Arturo Morales
Desachy one of the officers in
charge of translating incoming
radio communications during
the exercise. "I hope we keep
participating and attend next
year's UNITAS. We've brought
some of the best officers from
our country to take part in this,"
said Desachy.
"Three officers who've


come in 1st place at the naval
academy are on this crew. The
Comandante Luis also asked
the academy to send us their
best midshipmen. We all want
to learn as much as possible.
I would like to learn about
maneuvers, fire exercises, aerial
and surface exercises and all
things needed to be prepared
in case we help with a natural
disaster or are part of a task
force," Desachy explained.
Officers aren't the only ones


who see UNITAS Gold as a
rich training experience and a
chance to mingle with navies
from other countries. The enlist-
ed sailors aboard Oaxaca have a
favorable outlook as well.
"It's good to be here train-
ing with the U.S.," said Maester
3rd Class Juan Carlos Morales
Areualo, Oaxaca's barber. "It
feels good for my country to be
here with my shipmates for all
its beautiful experience."

Defense Department


Plans MWR Survey


Mayport Employee of the Quarter


By Samantha L. Quigley
American Forces Press Service
Defense Department officials are preparing to
conduct the first militarywide survey to assess
morale, welfare and recreation programs.
"We've established standards for all the servic-
es," Arthur Myers, acting deputy undersecretary
of defense for military community and family
policy, said. "Now we want to get feedback from
the [servicemembers] on how we're doing with
our programs."
Myers' office is conducting the survey with the
help of CFI Group, an international customer-
satisfaction consulting firm with headquarters in
Ann Arbor, Mich.
The survey will be e-mailed to about 150,000
randomly selected servicemembers in the near
future and will appear as being from CFI Group
"on behalf of DoD."
"So, remember, when you get that, it's not
spam," Myers said.
Though the survey will collect data on par-
ticipants' service branches and, if they choose to
provide it, their ethnicity, the responses will be
completely anonymous, Myers emphasized.


It's also important, he added, that those selected
participate in the survey to ensure the best level
of accuracy in the results.
Though the survey will be sent only to active-
duty servicemembers, Myers encouraged those
selected to take their families' opinions into con-
sideration when responding. As more data is
gained, future surveys will be open to the reserve
components, he added.
Those receiving the survey will have about
three weeks to participate. When the respons-
es are collected and analyzed, the findings
will be published on the Defense Department
Web site, as well as on Military Community
and Family Policy's Military OneSource and
MilitaryHomefront sites.
"This survey will actually tell us what [ser-
vicemembers'] needs are so we can meet those
needs," Myers said. "We really believe our pro-
grams are a key thing in keeping our military
ready and [in helping to retain them]."

USS Simpson Conducts TSC


To Cartagena, Colombia


By USS Simpson Public I "
The crew of USS Simpson
(FFG 56) conducted a Theater
Security Cooperation (TSC)
visit in Cartagena, Colombia
April 9-12.
Simpson's Sailors engaged
the Colombians on many dif-
ferent levels, from exercis-
es designed to improve the
interoperability of our Navies to
projects aimed at improving the
local community, all with the
overall goal of furthering the
United States' relationship with
Colombia and demonstrating a
commitment to the region.
Subject Matter Expert
Exchanges were conduct-
ed between Simpson's crew
and the Armada Nacional de
Colombia (Colombian Navy)
in many different fields, includ-
ing: firefighting, medical, small
arms, fuel testing, riverine oper-
ations, a surface warfare scenar-
io, underway replenishments,
and communications. These
were excellent opportunities to
share knowledge and experi-
ence with the Colombian Navy.
The port visit concluded with
an underway exercise conduct-
ed with two Colombian ships,
ARC Cartagena de Indias (BM
161) and ARC Padilla (FM 51).
The exercise included a light
line transfer where gifts were
exchanged, maneuvering drills,
and a photography exercise.
Simpson worked with the
Colombian Navy in many areas
to show their broad commitment
to the region. The ship's crew
presented Project Handclasp
donations to Asilo San Pedro
Claver Home for the Elderly,
Suenos and Oportunidads
Elementary School, Ana Maria
Elementary School, and Nelson
Mandela Monastery. The ele-
mentary schools each received
a toy pallet, while the nursing
home received medicinal, medi-
cal, and hygiene pallets and the
monastery was presented with
a pallet of sewing supplies,
which will be used to make
clothes for the local children.
A total of seven pallets were
donated to the local community.
The Colombian Navy arranged
the delivery of the pallets and

GI Bill
would cover servicemembers
who will reach the 20-year ser-
vice mark, making them retire-
ment-eligible, between Aug. 1,
2009, and Aug. 1, 2013.
Clark explained the break-
down, which basically enables
those affected to transfer ben-
efits as long as they complete
20 years of service:
Those eligible for retire-
ment on Aug. 1, 2009, would
be eligible to transfer their ben-
efits with no additional service
requirement. Those with an
approved retirement date after
Aug. 1, 2009, and before July
1, 2010, would qualify with no
additional service.
Those eligible for retirement
after Aug. 1, 2009, but before
Aug. 1, 2010, would qualify
with one additional year of ser-
vice after electing to transfer
their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.
Those eligible for retirement
between Aug. 1, 2010, and July
31, 2011, would qualify with
two additional years of service
after electing to transfer.
Those eligible to retire
between Aug. 1, 2011, and July
31, 2012, would qualify with


arranged the transportation
so that residents and students
from the various charities could
attend the presentation cer-
emonies. At the presentations,
Simpson's crew had a chance
to interact with the students
and nursing home residents.
An international broadcast was
run by Caracol TV highlighting
the presentations and the entire
port visit. The broadcasts can
be seen at the following link:

cana-ayuda-humanitaria
Another highlight of the port
visit was the reception Simpson
hosted the night of April 11.
Many Colombian military and
civilian dignitaries were in
attendance to include Admiral
Garcia, Commander of the
Colombian Navies Caribbean
Forces, and Admiral Ordonez,
Director of the Colombian
Naval Academy. The directors
of the recipient charities were
also present at the reception.
The reception was hosted by
Simpson, but the Colombian
Navy worked closely with the
ship to ensure the night was a
success, including arranging for
a four piece music ensemble to
perform local music throughout
the night. Simpson's Culinary
Specialists served a five star

The servicemember's 36
months of benefits the equiv-
alent of four nine-month aca-
demic years could be trans-
ferred to a spouse, one or more
children or any combination,
Clark said.
The family member must
be enrolled in the Defense
Eligibility Enrollment Reporting
System to receive the benefits.
Servicemembers also have
the option to use some benefits
themselves and transfer what
they haven't used to one or
more family members.
Even after transferring the
benefits, they remain the "prop-
erty" of the servicemember
who earned them, who can
revoke them or redesignate who
receives them at any time.
More details about the Post-
9/11 GI Bill are posted on
the Defense Department and
Department of Veterans Affairs
Web sites, and the Pentagon's
proposed transferability policy

site.

meal at the occasion. Gifts were
exchanged and the Guest of
Honor, Admiral Garcia, thanked
Simpson for all they had done
during the TSC visit. The night
provided a relaxed setting for
Simpson's crew to engage the
Colombian military and civil-
ians, laying a foundation for
future cooperation.
On the final day, many of
Simpson's crew played the
Colombian Navy in a game of
soccer and micro-futbol and co-
hosted a barbeque after the game.
At the same time other Simpson
members were attending a tour
of Cartagena provided by the
Colombian Navy. They visited
Cartagena's local fort, Castillo
de San Felipe, and the Maritime,
Gold, and Inquisition Museum.
Simpson's crew worked hard
to ensure the port visit was a
success, but still had ample time
to enjoy the local culture. The
entire TSC visit was setup by
a team of four of Simpson's
crew who traveled to Colombia
a month prior to the visit and
coordinated the events with
the Colombian Navy and U.S.
Embassy.
The focus of the visit was
TSC, designed to build and
strengthen effective partnerships
and friendships, develop partner
nation capabilities, and preserve

Learn How To Join NARFE


From NARFE
The National Association
of Active and Retired Federal
Employees, (NARFE), was
organized on Feb. 19, 1921 by
federal retirees in Washington
D.C. During the past 90 years
the organization has expanded
as members created chapters
throughout the nation and over-
seas. The chapters then orga-
nized state federations to serve
as a link to the national organi-
zation. The mission of NARFE
is to protect the earned benefits
of America's current federal
employees, the retired federal
workers and their families and
survivors.
There are four NARFE chap-
ters in the Jacksonville area.
Chapter 1414 is in Orange Park,
Chapter 1984 is in Murray
Hill on the Westside. Chapter
172 meets in the Regency area
and on the Northside. Chapter
1671 is Chartered in the "North


Florida Beaches" including
Atlantic, Neptune, Jacksonville,
Ponte Vedra Mayport and in
East Arlington. Chapter 1671
officers and members are avail-
able for questions and informa-
tion about NARFE between
10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday
through Friday in April and
May. Call Joe Valsi, 221 7644
or Pat Powell, 992 4681.
NARFE National Headquarters
in Alexandria Virginia can be
reached at 1 800 456 8410.
The Florida Federation of
Chapters is one of the larg-
est of the 54 federations in the
association. There are about
22,000 members in 65 chap-
ters throughout the state. From
these chapters, many dedicat-
ed elected and appointed fed-
eration members make a strong
impact on state and national
legislatures regarding legisla-
tion, health care concerns, and
other issues that are important


to federal employees, retirees
and their families.
Membership in NARFE
and the Florida Federation of
Chapters is open to civilians in
any agency of the federal gov-
ernment including: federal
employees, retirees, spouses
and former spouses of current
and retired federal employ-
ees, former employees eligible
for deferred annuity, and sur-
vivors of those eligible to join
NARFE.
NARFE is the only national
organization dedicated to pro-
tecting the interests of current
federal employees, retirees and
their dependents. NARFE has
had a remarkable success record
and continues its mission of leg-
islative accountability by mem-
bers of congress, membership
recruitment and retention, and
service to its members.

VBSS:


Evolving With


The Mission


By Ed Barker
Naval Education and Training Com-
mand Public-" ,
Whether it's searching a
Dhow in the Persian Gulf for
hidden weapons, or boarding
and inspecting a suspected
pirate mothership off the coast
of Somalia, Visit, Board, Search
and Seizure (VBSS) teams are
playing an important part in the
Navy's 21st century Maritime
Strategy.
Managed by the Center for
Security Forces (CENSECFOR)
in Norfolk, Va., formal VBSS
training was created following
the first Gulf War in 1990 as
a way to standardize and con-
tinue the Maritime Interception
Operations introduced there as a
result of U.N. Resolutions.
"The course was designed to
standardize what was previously
done through on-the-job train-
ing and passdown," said Kurt
Martin, Anti-Terrorism Program
Manager for CENSECFOR.
"We introduced the curriculum
in 1998 and updated it in 2005
to reflect what the teams would
be facing in the fleet."
Initial VBSS skills training
is delivered by CENSECFOR
at four locations: Chesapeake,
Va., Mayport, Fla., San Diego,
Calif., and Pearl Harbor,
Hawaii. The initial training
continuum includes three cours-
es lasting a total of eight weeks,
with some team members

A visit, board, search, and seizure team from the guided-missile cruiser USS Gettysburg (CG 64)
patrols the Gulf of Aden near a suspected pirate vessel. Gettysburg is deployed as part of Combined
Task Force (CTF) 151, a multinational task force conducting counter-piracy operations to detect and
deter piracy in and around the Gulf ofAden, Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean and Red Sea. CTF 151 was
established to create a lawful maritime order and develop security in the maritime environment.

VBSS courses include tactical inspection team, and Level II, vessels that have greater than

and other team skills, compliant. Level II ships have are handled by teams of Special
The center's training cov- freeboard (the distance between Operations Forces (SOF).

manding officer of USS Mahan
(DDG 72), is currently operating
as part of Combined Task Force
(CTF) 151, a multi-national task
force conducting counter-piracy
operations in the Gulf of Aden.
"Time and again on this deploy-
ment, the investment in train-
ing of my VBSS team has paid
off," said Murphy. "Whether in
support of the counter-narcot-
ics mission or our new, more
aggressive approach to stopping
piracy, extensive training and
the teamwork and principles
of risk management that it has
instilled has resulted in safe
mission accomplishment."
Although anti-piracy opera-
tions are getting the lion's share
of the news coverage, Martin
notes that VBSS teams are not
specifically trained for an anti-
piracy mission. "You won't find
the term 'anti-piracy' in any of
the CENSECFOR VBSS train-
ing curriculum," added Martin.
"The fact that the ships depend
on the VBSS teams is a by-
product of the cohesive unit that
forms, and their ability to deliv-
er the team via Rigid-Hulled
Inflatable Boats (RHIBs), board
vessels and, if necessary, defend

explore ways to balance achiev-
ing success in current conflicts
with preparing for long-term
challenges," Deputy Defense
Secretary William J. Lynn III
stated in a Defense Department

fare," Lynn said in the release.
The QDR is performed every


four years; previous QDRs were
conducted in 1997, 2001, and

The purpose of the QDR

ties necessary to prevent con-
flict or conclude it on terms
that are favorable to the nation
now and in the future," Marine
Gen. James E. Cartwright, vice
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, stated in an April 23 news
release.
