Hue Memorial

Scheduled
USS Hue City plans on
holding the annual Hue
Memorial from May 29-31.
The Memorial recognizes
and celebrates the achieve-
ments of the veterans of the
Battle of Hu6 City and invites
them to tour the only ship
in the United States Navy
named for a battle fought
during the Vietnam War.
Friday night will host
a reception at Bogies
Restaurant. A golf tourna-
ment, wives and widows
brunch, and family picnic
are scheduled for Saturday.
The memorial will culmi-
nate in a memorial service
with a guest speaker, author
Nicholas Warr, on Sunday
morning. Warr was awarded
the Presidential Unit Citation
for participation in Operation
Hu6 City and was honorably
discharged as a first lieuten-
ant from the Marine Corps in
March 1970.
The Battle for Hu6 City
began January 31, 1968,
when the North Vietnamese
Army and the National Front
for the Liberation of South
Vietnam (NLF, also known
as, Viet Cong) attacked
the city as a part of the Tet
Offensive.
The city was reclaimed
by the Army of the Republic
of Vietnam and three U.S.
Marine Corps battalions, who
attacked and defeated more
than 10,000 entrenched
People's Army of Vietnam
(PAVN) and guerilla forces
after more than a month of
entrenched, block by block
fighting. The memorial is by
invitation only.

Frigate Issues Have Global Scope


By Paige Gnann
Editor
Delegates from eight differ-
ent countries joined subject
matter experts at Naval Station
Mayport last week to discuss
maintenance, modernization and
life cycle issues of the Oliver
Hazard Perry-class frigates as
part of the International FFG
Working Group (IFWG).
IFWG is the "fairly unique,"
according to NAVSEA Deputy


Commander (SEA 21), Rear
Adm. Jim McManamon, and
is geared towards sharing best
practices and concerns through-
out the international frigate
community.
There are currently more
than 60 frigates in operation
world wide, with just over
half of those belonging to
the allied navies of Australia,
Egypt, Spain, Turkey, Bahrain,
Poland and Taiwan. Thirteen


of the U.S. Navy's 30 frigates
are located at Naval Station
Mayport, along with Frigate
Class Squadron (FFGRON),
part of the CLASSRON concept
to align the Surface Warfare
Enterprise. The primary goal
of the FFGRON is to improve
readiness, productivity, efficien-
cy and cost-effectiveness for the
frigate class.
And just because a differ-
ent country owns a frigate,


doesn't necessarily mean they
perform the maintenance on it,
McManamon said. Several of
the countries rely on the U.S.
Navy for maintenance and parts
replacement. With a limited
number of replacement parts
as the ships get older, that is
becoming a problem. Many of
the original manufacturers have
gone out of business or the parts
are simply not made anymore.
By bringing the countries


together to talk, they are learn-
ing that they share many of
the same problems and getting
a better idea of how to solve
them.
"What we are looking at here
is as these ships age, who we
can bring best practices to the
table," McManamon said. [The
IFWG] establishes lines of com-
munication and sharing lessons

USS Roosevelt Wins



Phalanx CIWS Award


From Staff
The crew of USS Roosevelt received $1,000
towards its MWR fund and a plaque to hang on
the ship as the winner of the 2008 Phalanx Close-
In Weapons System (CIWS) Excellence Award
May 12.
Rear Adm. Kevin M. Quinn, Commander,
Naval Surface Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet and
representatives from Raytheon Systems Company
presented the award to the guided-missile destroy-
er.
"This is a special occasion," said USS
Roosevelt Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Stanley
Keeve. "The CIWS team has done a phenomenal
job."
The award is given based on operational effi-
ciency of the CIWS. The Phalanx CIWS is a
20mm, rapid-fire, Gatling gun, capable of accu-
rately firing more than 3,000 rounds per minute
as the final line of defense against anti-ship mis-


siles or aircraft. The gun is mounted in a self-con-
tained turret along with an automatic fire control
system. It routinely searches, detects, tracks and
engages targets using its computer-controlled
radar system. Ships were evaluated based on the
rounds fired, number of hours the systems were
operational, operational hours between failures
and number of technical assists from outside
sources.
CIWS is an important self defense system for
the Navy and is on nearly every ship from frig-
ates to aircraft carriers, so being the top CIWS
ship in LANTFLT is a huge accomplishment for
the members of CG division that make up the
CIWS team.
The CIWS team is made up of Fire Controlman
1st Class Steven Scott, Fire Controlman 2nd
Class Jonathan Branch, Fire Controlman 2nd
Class Christopher Brown, Fire Controlman 3rd
Class Thomas Byrne.

CO Column


We honored our fallen ship-
mates on Sunday with the 22nd
annual memorial service com-
memerating the crew members
of USS Stark (FFG-31) killed
on May 17, 1987 when the
ship was attacked by Iraqi mis-
siles. Two missiles struck the
ship without warning after 2100
while the ship was on patrol
in the southern Persian Gulf.
One missile exploded, causing
immediate fires and tremendous
damage in the forward part of
the ship. Fuel from the second
missile intensified the fires,
and the crew fought the inferno
through the night and the next
day. Aided by equipment and
fire fighting teams from other
Navy ships, the crew succeed-
ed in saving the ship, but the
cost was heavy: thirty seven
shipmates were killed. Several
family and crew members
were on hand and many told
personal stories of how they
reacted when the ship was hit.
Special thanks to Rear Admiral
Joseph D. Kernan, Commander,
U.S. Naval Forces Southern
Command and Commander
FOURTH Fleet for an excellent
job as the guest speaker for the
event and thanks to the Naval
Order of the United States for
making sure the heroes we lost
are never forgotten. I also have
to thank Base Services for mak-
ing the park look better than I
have ever seen and the MWR
and Security departments.
The families of the Stark


Capt. Aaron Bowman
always praise the support they
received from the command and
base Ombudsmen who all gath-
ered together to get the fami-
lies through the tragedy. The
Ombudsmen we have on this
base continue to impress and
amaze me. If you don't know
who your ombudsman is or if
your fiance or spouse doesn't
have them on speed dial, you
need to track them down real
quick. The connections they
have and the experience they
bring to the table are sec-
ond to none. My wife and I
had the honor of hosting the
Ombudsman at our quarters last
Friday evening to thank them
for everything they do. Please
take the time to thank them for
their support and dedication to
the Navy.
If you notice a large bell in
Memorial park, its because
more than 300 shipmates of


the USS FDR (CV 42) were on
hand last Friday to dedicate the
ship's bell as part of their mon-
ument of the ship. The bell will
stand as a tribute to all those
that served on the FDR and we
will be able to use it for any
ceremony in the park. The FDR
was one of the first aircraft car-
riers at Mayport and was deco-
missioned in 1977. Thanks to
everyone (especially our securi-
ty department) who had a hand
in helping this honorable group
with their reunion.
This coming Saturday we
welcome home the crew of
the USS Robert G. Bradley as
they return to Mayport after
AFRICOM Deployment. The
ship deployed to the Navy's
Sixth Fleet area of operations
six months ago and participated
in countless training workshops,
a multination exercise with vari-
ous European and North African
countries and many other types
of engagements. Welcome home
and get ready for some well
deserved time with your family
and friends.
We now have the first sea
turtle nest on base and it is a
big one. For the first time in six
years, a Leatherback turtle came
ashore and laid her eggs in a
nest on our beach. The nest is
near the jetties and of course is
protected by orange netting and
should be avoided at all times.
We should see them hatch in
late July. The Leatherback is
the world's largest sea turtle and


the tracks up on the beach easily
can exceed seven feet across!
A little known 50th anni-
versary at Mayport is about to
happen on 8 June. Go on-line
and type in "missile mail" and
you will find that in the late fif-
ties, the post office was looking
for innovative ways to speed
up mail delivery and conducted
a test shot from the submarine
USS Barbero off the coast of
Virginia with a Regulus mis-
sile filled with mail to land
at Mayport Naval Station.
3000 pieces of mail arrived
at Mayport and the test was a
complete success. Although the
concept never caught on, the
vision was to launch missiles
filled with mail from coast to
coast and across the Atlantic.
June 1st is the officail start of
Hurricane Season. Last week
we went through our HURREX
and next week we get ready for
the start of Hurricane Season
with Hurricane Preparedness
Week (May 24-30). The Navy's
Operation Prepare campaign
urges you to be prepared know-
ing the vulnerabilities and the
actions you and your family
can take before a hurricane. We
are in an area that is prone to
hurricanes so you should have
plans for securing your home,
evacuating to shelter, and main-
taining communications. If the
decision to evacuate the base
is made, it will happen rather
quickly and staying in the bar-
racks or in a Navy home will


not be an option. You can help
yourself by having an emer-
gency kit ready to go and a list
of key documents that you can
assemble quickly. Please have
those family discussions now
on where you will go, what you
will take, and how you will
communicate if an evacuation
takes place.
On June 15-19, our Fleet and
Family Support Center (FFSC)
will present its quarterly
Command Financial Specialist
(CFS) training course. This is
a 40-hour course designed for
the military service member
to provide training and edu-
cation, information and refer-
ral, and counseling and assis-
tance to other service members
within their command, depart-
ment, and/or detachment.
Qualifications for CFS class
attendees include:
a. Military members in pay
grade E6 and above
b. Candidates must be highly
motivated and financially sta-
bleand meet financial overseas
screening standards. For assis-
tance with the CFS screening
process, CO's may refer to the
FFSC Personal Financial (PFM)
staff for guidance. Screening
shall be completed prior to
training.
c. E5 candidates require
special authorization from
Commander, Navy Installations
Command (CNIC) PFM
Program Manager.
d. Candidates must have a


minimum of one year remain-
ing in their current command
from the date of graduation
from training.
e. The CFS class is also open
to all Naval Career Counselors
and all Ombudsman.
To Sign up for the CFS class
the service member class attend-
ee should call NS Mayport's
Fleet and Family Support
Center at 270-6600, ext. 1701.
Before I close I want to thank
our USO for hosting a fantastic
"Military Appreciation" event
last Saturday. It was an over-
whelming success and the vol-
unteers and sponsors showed up
in huge numbers. I know I had
a great time and my son cer-
tainly enjoyed boxing with dad
and putting me horizontal with
the super large boxing gloves.
Plenty of games, food and fun
was had by all. The USO is a
big part of our team and they
deserve our respect and admira-
tion. Well done, and thank you
for the support you give us.
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


Chaplain's Corner


The decade of the 1960's is
a benchmark in the history of
20th century America. Among
a number of significant events,
the decade marked the begin-
ning of an era of cynicism,
doubt and suspicion. People
started to openly question the
trustworthiness of their leaders.
A good number of folks had
some valid reasons for doing so.
Many started to question the
ability of government to solve
the mounting and complex
problems of society. The hip-
pies of the 1960's exemplified
the epitome of the era's spirit of Chaplain Joe Molina

Sweet Land of Liberty


Nobody Does It Like Disney!


By Erica I. Pefia-Vest
Travel Contributor
With the Walt Disney
Company offering the mili-
tary and their family free
and discounted tickets, there
has never been a better time
to visit a Disney park. (For
more information on specific
terms, visit www.disney.com
or visit ITT). With our close
proximity to Walt Disney
World, it's convenient to visit
it and visit it often. But with
this year's special offer, why
not venture out and visit Walt's
original park?
I recently visited
Disneyland in Anaheim,
California with my family and
was amazed at how the Disney
Company works so hard to
improve their parks, when to
the naked eye there is no need
for improvement. Yet, every
time I travel to Disneyland
there is something new and
exciting to see. I hadn't been
to Disneyland in a few years
and all of Anaheim, California
seemed to have changed so
much. Just when you think
the magic can't get any big-
ger and the ambiance can't
get any better, Disney and
Company exceed your wild-
est imagination in their efforts.


For those of you planning to
visit in the next year, I have
so much to share with you
that I have decided to do it in
a two part series. This first
part will touch on Disneyland
itself. The second part will
be on Disney's California
Adventure, Downtown Disney
and Anaheim.
Disneyland is the oldest of
Walt's parks, and will forever
be the original. As the original
park, I have always thought
that Disneyland is a static cre-
ation. After all, why improve
on the true and tested? And
yet, I am always pleasantly
surprised by the new rides,
attractions and renovations
that have taken place in the
years since I was last there.
For those that have been there
and done it all, you will find
all of your old favorites plus
some new thrills and adven-
tures. Kids and adults alike
will enjoy the new Finding
Nemo's Submarine Voyage.
The submarines that I loved so
much as a kid have returned,
but this time with a spin that
is sure to capture the imagina-
tion of children everywhere.
On this trip, I was surprised to
find two of my favorite rides
had changed. Pirates of the


Caribbean has been length-
ened and updated, and char-
acters from the 2003 film have
been added. I found some
new thrills and new surprises
waiting around every corner.
Even more surprising was The
Haunted Mansion. My family
and I visited during the peri-
od between Halloween and
Christmas, and were delighted
to find The Haunted Mansion
completely redecorated in
the theme of the movie "The
Nightmare Before Christmas."
It made for a wonderful
change from the expected.
During our trip to California,
we stayed just down the
street from Disneyland at
the Sheraton Garden Grove.
With so many hotels in the
area to choose from, it's hard
to choose the perfect one.
However, this brand new hotel
has worked hard to stand out.
It offers great amenities, spa-
cious rooms, transportation
to and from Disneyland (for a
fee), and most importantly a
great place to rest after your
hectic day of park hopping.
They also offer fantastic mili-
tary rates year-round (www.
sheraton.com). Contact the
hotel directly for more infor-
mation (714-703-8400).


I had the opportunity to visit
all the Southern California
amusement parks during
my visit and while they all
have their merits, one thing
became very clear to my fam-
ily. Something was differ-
ent when we left Disneyland.
The different parks through-
out the area lacked some-
thing we couldn't describe.
Not to sound trite but there
is something dreamlike about
being at Disneyland. For just
a moment, you are not just
there for your kids. It brings
something out in you. You
are suddenly in a place where
everything seems possible,
where dreams really do come
true and where you forget who
you are today and remember
who you were 20 years ago
when you believed in magic.
My husband and I in a futile
attempt to pinpoint the differ-
ence between the area parks
came to one conclusion no
one does it like Disney.
Stay tuned to the next issue

Remembered At Memorial F
FFGRON


By Bill Austin

Honor, courage and true grit was recognized
at Naval Station Mayport's Memorial Park on
Sunday, May 17 during an annual event that
marks the loss of 37 Sailors killed aboard the
guided-missile frigate USS Stark (FFG 31) 22
years ago.
On May 17, 1987, while on patrol in the
Arabian Gulf, senseless tragedy struck in the
night when two Iraqi missiles slammed into the
sides of the USS Stark. Despite the severe dam-
age inflicted, the heroic efforts of Stark's crew
saved the ship by fighting the inferno through the
night and into the next day.
"I just got off watch in the auxiliary room
and was watching the Clint Eastwood movie,
"Hang 'Em High," said Mark Selk, an Engineman
Second Class onboard Stark. "Just when Clint
Eastwood dropped from the gallows with a noose
around his neck, I heard this tremendous bang
and the ship rocked violently." Selk said that
within seconds, fire and smoke engulfed the ship.
"When I heard over the ship's IMC "incoming
port side" I knew we didn't hit another ship and
this was no accident. Our training kicked in."
Several of the ship's crew and former com-
manding officers were on hand to tell their sto-
ries that will be forever etched in their memo-
ries. One recount was a story of forgiveness to
those that caused death and mayhem that night.
Barbara Kiser, who lost her husband Senior Chief
Steve Kiser, attends the ceremony every year, and
clutched a small reminder that has big meaning
for her. "I went to Bahrain for a memorial they


had for families on the ship's fantail several days
after the incident," said Kiser as her blue eyes
began to well up. "We took a boat out to the ship
and I went into the berthing area where he was
killed and it was completely dark except for the
beam of my flashlight. There was nothing but
ashes and twisted metal everywhere. With my
free hand I felt in the dark around his bed and
there underneath his burnt mattress and in the
ashes was his bible. Look, you can read every
page despite it being singed around the edges.
I can still smell the fire." Kiser said she had the
opportunity to read a passage of forgiveness from
that bible to Saddam Hussein's henchman when
she returned from the ship.
Forgiveness or not, memories and a sense of
camaraderie were shared by shipmates and family
alike that afternoon, and with 37 strikes of a bell
and the laying of a ceremonial wreath, each ship-
mate was honored and a 21 gun salute rang out
to the blue Florida skies.
"Their valorous selfless sacrifice and courage
in the face of adversity will never be forgot-
ten," said guest speaker Rear Adm. Joseph D.
Kernan, Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern
Command and Commander Fourth Fleet. "Let's
hope their courage is found in every generation
to come."
Stark was decommissioned at Mayport in 1999.
In order to preserve the tradition once the ship
was retired, the Naval Order of the United States,
North Florida Commandery, assumed sponsorship
for the memorial service. Mayport's Memorial
Park was established Aug. 1, 1987, with the dedi-
cation of the Stark monument.

learned."
McManamon said one of the
most pressing concerns within
the frigate community is cor-
rosion control, along with the
console computer cards.
He also added that it has been
interesting to see how the differ-
ent countries have adapted the
frigates to fit their own needs.
McManamon said the most
interesting work was by the
Australians who had adapted the
ship's combat systems for verti-
cal launch missiles. Egypt and
Turkey have also done interest-
ing work on hull upgrades, he
added.
The U.S. Navy has done
its own modernization to the
frigates, including replacing
the ShipAlt 423, the ship ser-
vice diesel generator, with a
Caterpillar 3512.
As the U.S. Navy looks
towards building its fleet to 313
ships by 2013, it also has to
look at the state of the current
fleet.
When the Perry-class frig-
ates were first commissioned
starting 30 years ago, the ships
were designed for a 25-year


life expectancy. That has been
extended an additional five
years as NS Mayport-based
USS McInerney turns 30 this
year.
"What we're trying to do here
is to provide the CNO with the
option of either maintaining or
putting [a frigate] into decom-
mission," McManamon added.
"Our concern is if we don't pay
attention to this now, then he
won't have an option. I want
to make sure he does have a
choice."
"[IFWG] gives us a chance to
share lessons learned andd get a
good understanding of what we
need to do to keep the FFGs a

the annual USO Appreciation
Day on May 16 at Sea Otter
Pavilion at Naval Station
Mayport.

USO Executive Director John
Shockley said the event came
together with a lot of work from ...
the USO staff and dozens of .,
volunteers. Unlike past years -.
which relied on a large grant --.
from Disney World, this year
the staff had to be more creative
with finding funding.
"We worked hard to get
those sponsors," Shockley said.
"When we learned we weren't
getting the Disney grant, we
decided no matter what we ..
were going to do this event.
We turned it into a challenge to
work harder and the sponsors --- ..

USS Hue City Joins With Norwegean Frigate


Roald Amundensen During Group Sail


-Photos courtesy of USS Hue City
Several crew members from USS Hue City got a chance to board the Norwegian Aegia Frigate KNM
Roald Amundensen recently. Ensign Nhilhla, Watts-Fernandez, Ensign Amanda Beierl and Ensign
Steven W. Adams with USS Hue City in the background.


Pictured from left is Kvartermester Kvassheim, Ensign Nhi1hli' Watts-Fernandez, Ensign Amanda
Beierl, Loynant Taasen, and Ensign Steven W. Adams on the bridge ofKNM Roald Amundensen.


From USSHue ( .
Several crew members of
USS Hue City had a unique
opportunity to visit the
Norwegian Aegis Frigate KNM
Roald Amundensen (F311) dur-
ing a recent group sail.
Ensign Steven W. Adams,
Ensign Amanda Beierl, and
Ensign Nicholas Watts-
Fernandez had the privilege
to spend a morning on board,
Chief Operation Specialist
David Flournoy spent a week
and a half, and Fire Controlman
2nd Class Christopher Ford
spent a couple of days. While
there, the Ensigns were grant-
ed an inside view of the newly
commissioned Frigate and spent
the morning touring the ship,
comparing work loads, and ship
systems. Flournoy was on board
to help integrate the ship's crew


into USS Harry S. Truman
Strike Group Air Defense and
Air Intercept Control postures.
Ford was on board to compare,
contrast, and train the crew
on the intricacies of the Aegis
Weapon System.
"There is a pride in owner-
ship among the crew that I have
yet to encounter," Adams said.
"Every person is dedicated to
their tasks, their job, and to the
ship. Despite working in a two
section rotation (12-on-12 off
for engineers and six-on-six off
for combat) personnel are per-
forming at a higher level. More
maintenance is being done,
more training is being done,
and they have yet to encounter
a person not being able to per-
form their watch."
KNM Roald Amundensen
has a smaller crew, hence the


extended watch section and
need for extra training. "It
was a very informational visit;
the modernity of their ship is
remarkable and offers a great
opportunity to see where the
future of naval ship building
is heading," Watts-Fernandez
noticed. "Full ship automation
gives ready access to plant con-
figuration from almost any part
of the ship, and the Damage
Control features offer three
dimensional visual on any casu-
alty. My guide, an electrician
petty officer, was very informa-
tive and took great pleasure in
showing me the plant and all
the various Engineering modes.
His former ship was a 40-year-
old frigate, so he was able to
point out the major differences
between the ultra old and the
ultra new. The combination


of gas and diesel offered ultra
fuel conservation and also made
the ship more able to maintain
silence."
"The crew was very friendly,
going out of their way to show
us around, learn from us and
teach us," Beierl added. "Their
Wardroom was awe inspir-
ing, with the presence of ship
memorabilia as well as that of
the King. The Sailors were
all-around intelligent, working
the equipment as though it was
second nature to them and the
Commanding Officer was very
cordial, taking the time to show
us around and teach us. He even
gave the ship's Challenge coin
to every visitor."
"The week and a half on
RAMU [Roald Amundsen] was
both a good training evolution
and a great learning experi-


ence," said Flournoy. "The crew
of RAMU is incredibly profes-
sional and takes pride in their
ship, their Navy and their coun-
try. Training was conducted in
various Air Defense issues from
Air Intercept Control to rec-
ommendations for internal and
external reporting, as well as
coalition integration."
Ford also mentioned, "While
aboard the Norwegian vessel,
I found that we have many dif-
ferences in platforms and equip-
ment, but the ways both nations
run their ships aren't very differ-
ent at all. While there to teach
their SPY technicians some
"tricks of the trade" and setup
features for Surface Search, I
also had to opportunity to find
out a lot about their particular
system. Their knowledge level
was very great in both the tacti-


cal and practical sense. I hope
that my visit has left them with
more tools that they can use to
help support further intentions
in our nations' cooperation.
The Norwegian hospitality was
wonderful in all aspects and, if
granted another visit, I would
gratefully accept."
The purpose of the visit
was to promulgate good rela-
tions between partner nations
and help integrate them into the
ways and means of an American
Strike Group. That purpose
is being met. The Captain of
the ship was a very gracious
host and assured us before we
departed that, though there are
still areas that need more prac-
tice and attention, he is fully
confident that Roald Amundsen
is ready for a deployment.

HSL-48 Detachment Returns To Mayport


By Lt. Helen Smith
HSL-48
HSL-48 Detachment Five
"BOHICA Air" (Beware Of
Helos Intentionally Carrying
Armament), recently returned
from their seven-month deploy-
ment to the Africa Partnership
Station embarked USS Leyte
Gulf (CG 55).
The detachment conduct-
ed operations in support of
AFRICOM on the east and west
coasts of Africa, the Horn of
Africa, and in the Mediterranean
Sea. They participated in
operations in both 5th and 6th
Fleets and visited numerous
ports to build positive relation-
ships with other nations. The
32 members of the detachment
were able to experience a wide
breadth of culture including
visits to Congo, Senegal, Gran
Canaria, Morocco, Portugal,
Spain, Sicily, Cyprus, Egypt,
the Seychelles, and Greece.
More than 700 mishap-free
flight hours were flown during
deployment, more than 220 of
which were in support of mul-
tinational counter-piracy opera-
tions in the HOA. USS Leyte
Gulf played host for receptions
in a number of nations, while
Bohica Air provided tours of


the SH-60B as well as training
on aircraft capabilities and SAR
procedures.
Early in deployment, USS
Leyte Gulf and Bohica Air
supported the training of Cape
Verde law enforcement to help
curb the illegal fishing and drug
trade between South America
and Africa. While on the West
Coast of Africa, the detach-
ment participated in COMREL
projects in Congo and Senegal,
assisting with roof and paint
projects for local schools.
Many Bohicans became illustri-
ous Emerald Shellbacks, cross-
ing the equator at 0 degrees
latitude and 0 degrees longitude
off the coast of Gabon. After a
brief stay in Agadir, Morocco,
the ship conducted a PASSEX
with the Hassan II, a Moroccan
Naval vessel. Bohica Air's
Lieutenant Pat McInerney was
embarked on the Hassan II for
the duration of the PASSEX
as an ambassador, where he
received an enthusiastic wel-
come.
For two weeks in January,
the detachment found them-
selves in Sicily. They spent five
days in Messina for the 100-
year anniversary of a devastat-
ing earthquake that left the city


destroyed in 1908. Ships from
the various nations that had
responded to the disaster were
present for the commemoration.
Bohicans participated in various
municipal events throughout the
city, serving as ambassadors for
the United States Navy.
Just prior to the first of four
Suez Canal transits, Bohica Air
was able to visit Alexandria,
Egypt for a once in a lifetime
opportunity to visit the pyra-
mids. Some Bohicans even
became experienced camel rid-
ers during their brief stay. After
completing escort duties that
involved a total of three Suez
transits, USS Leyte Gulf and
Bohica Air proceeded down the
Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden
towards the Horn of Africa to
participate in counter-piracy
operations. Bohica Air worked
in cooperation with both mer-
chant and multinational military
vessels to provide protection
and to investigate any suspi-
cious activity.
Although it has been a long
deployment, Bohica Air has
returned with increased knowl-
edge, an appreciation for the
comforts of home, and great
respect for the many cultures
they have experienced.

CDS 24 Train to Execute Maritime Strategy


By MC3(SW)
Candice Villarreal
Commander Destroyer Squadron 24
Public. ;
U.S. Navy units and a host of
allied forces have commenced a
multiple platform, comprehen-
sive maritime operations exer-
cise in the coastal waters of the
United Kingdom, slated to take
place May 11-21.
The Joint Warrior (JW) exer-
cise, a two-week evolution led
by the Joint Tactical Exercise
Planning Staff (JTEPS) in the
United Kingdom (UK), pro-
vides a robust training environ-
ment for partnering nations to
prepare their maritime forces
and improve interoperability
for any combined operations in
future global assignments.
Participating countries include
the United States, Germany,
Great Britain, Turkey, the
Netherlands, Greece, France,
Italy and Denmark.
"One of the strengths of
the U.S. Navy is our abil-
ity to forward-deploy world-
wide and work well with
our allies and partners,"
said Commander, Destroyer
Squadron (COMDESRON) 24
Commodore Capt. John Kersh.
"The way you get really good
at that is to work with them in
a benign environment first and
then draw upon those relation-
ships once you get in theater.
It brings us to a higher overall
state of training readiness."
USS Arleigh Burke (DDG
51), USS Porter (DDG 78),
USS Philippine Sea (CG 58),
USNS Kanawha (T-AO 193)
and COMDESRON 24 repre-
sent the United States during
the scenario-driven engage-
ment. While in transit to the
region, the ships conducted a
series of underway replenish-


ments (UNREP), counterpiracy
scenarios, boarding exercises,
gun shoots, and ship maneuver-
ing drills, all in preparation for
the fast-paced event.
"Our Sailors are going to get
to see the world while work-
ing on building relationships
with other navies," said Kersh.
"They will begin to understand
things like our allies' proce-
dures, how they operate, their
rules of engagement and the
communications pathways they
have established. It's going to
be unbelievably good training,
and it's all very, very positive."
Exercise JW also encompass-
es fleet irregular warfare train-
ing (FIWT), focusing heavily
on more non-traditional warfare
areas such as counterpiracy and
theater security. The innovative
FIWT is an invaluable tool for
21st century Sailors addressing
and overcoming new, emergent
threats.
"A number of Sailors will be
heavily involved in visit, board,
search and seizure (VBSS)
teams, force protection, and
antiterrorism evolutions," said
Kersh. "They will see firsthand
how it all fits together, and that
they have a very important role
to play."
Arleigh Burke Commanding
Officer Cmdr. Brian Moum
said working with allies keeps
the American military fluent in
what other nations are doing,
ensuring partnered nations can
execute operations together,
both correctly and efficiently.
"Joint Warrior is a complete-
ly new experience for me and
a lot of other junior Sailors,"
said Hull Technician Fireman
Apprentice Teela Vaudrin, a
Sailor assigned to USS Arleigh
Burke. "We don't know what's
ahead of us on our [follow-on]

deployment, so any practice we
get to prepare us for future mis-
sions is going to be really valu-
able for us."
Both the JW exercise and
FIWT evolutions are expected
to increase fleet efficiency and
battle readiness in accordance
with the U.S. Navy's maritime
strategy.
Following successful com-
pletion of JW, Arleigh Burke
will depart for the remainder
of its six-month deployment to
African waters in support of
maritime security operations at
sea.
"We will be out conducting
multiple warfare evolutions in
real time, which is something
we don't necessarily get while
operating off of the East Coast,"
said Moum. "It's going to teach
everybody, at all levels, to not
just focus on one task but to
keep a clear focus on the bigger
picture at all times."

need to see and understand the
effects of domestic violence
on children as encompassing

Phoenix Express '09


By Ensign Rajiv Seth
USS Robert G. Bradley
USS Robert G. Bradley
(FFG 49), on deployment to
the Sixth Fleet area of respon-
sibility, began transiting out
of the Mediterranean Sea
upon successful completion
of PHOENIX EXPRESS '09
(PE09).
There were two phases of
the exercise. The first phase
of PE09 entailed in-port work-
shops in Souda Bay, Greece on
medical training, damage con-
trol and firefighting, naviga-
tion, deck seamanship, search
and rescue, maritime interdic-
tion operations and small boat
operations. The second phase
involved participation in under-
way exercises focusing on
improving interoperability and
maritime security.
Robert G. Bradley embarked
naval liaison officers from
several countries including
Senegal, Libya, Italy, Tunisia,
and Algeria. In addition to a
liaison officer, Tunisia also sent
an entire visit, board, search,
and seizure team consisting
of 12 Sailors. The Tunisian
team conducted two boardings
from Robert G. Bradley onto
the CDIC Hallebarde, a French

landing craft unit, and the
USNS Laramie, a US merchant
marine replenishment vessel.
Both were participating in the
exercise as simulated target ves-
sels.
Robert G. Bradley operated
with the multi-national group
of ships practicing divisional
tactics, communications, and
maritime interdiction operations
in the Mediterranean Sea.
PE09 is an annual multi-
national exercise conducted in


the Mediterranean hosted by
Commander, Sixth Fleet. The
exercise is intended to increase
maritime stability by strength-
ening relationships.
PE09 aids in this effort by
increasing interoperability
between the U.S and participat-
ing nations from Europe and
North Africa.
Robert G. Bradley has
been on deployment to Africa
Command's area of responsibil-
ity since Nov. 2008.


The Liaison Officers from Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Senegal have a discussion on the Robert G.
Bradley's bridge wing during PE09.

New Ship Life Cycle Management Activity Stands Up


From Naval Sea i .. CommandOf-
fice ofCorporate Communications
Naval Sea Systems Command
(NAVSEA) formally estab-
lished the Surface Ship Life
Cycle Management (SSLCM)
Activity on May 8 in a ceremo-
ny at Norfolk Naval Shipyard
(NNSY) in Portsmouth, Va.
The new activity, a NAVSEA
program office, will be aligned
under the deputy commander
for surface warfare (SEA 21).
The SSLCM Activity will
maintain, monitor and refine
class maintenance plans for
all non-nuclear surface ships
to ensure material readiness
for the projected service life,
develop life-cycle strategies to
address system upgrades, and
fully implement the Integrated
Class Maintenance Plan into


each surface ship's maintenance
schedule and availability plan-
ning process.
The new activity is modeled
after and will function similarly
to the Submarine Maintenance
Engineering Planning and
Procurement Activity and the
Carrier Planning Activity. These
activities provide engineering
and maintenance planning ser-
vices for the U.S. Navy subma-
rine and carrier fleets.
"The acquisition of new
ships is only part of what it will
take to reach the Navy's goal
of 313 ships," said Rear Adm.
James McManamon, deputy
commander for surface warfare
(SEA 21). "To meet this goal,
we need to continue to main-
tain and efficiently manage our
existing ships. The SSLCM


Activity will put in place the
processes necessary to accom-
plish that."
Since Planning, Estimating,
Repair and Alterations (PERA)
Surface in Philadelphia was
deactivated in 1993 as part of
the BRAC process, surface fleet
class maintenance and avail-
ability planning has been exe-
cuted by Regional Maintenance
Centers and the type command-
er.
The SSLCM activity will pro-
vide centralized life-cycle sup-
port and management for U.S.
Navy surface ships to assess
and manage the maintenance
requirements throughout the
life-cycle of ships in the surface
fleet. This will help better plan
and budget for long-term main-
tenance needs.


By analyzing and weighing
the costs and risks of mainte-
nance tasks, the activity will
improve the accuracy of future
Baseline Availability Work
Package development and will
validate existing maintenance
strategies.
This effort will provide long-
term value for surface ship
lifecycle sustainment efforts
and ensure an effective means
to achieve full service life.
SSLCM Activity will regularly
work with the U.S. Fleet Forces
Command, Surface Warfare
Enterprise, Board of Inspection
and Survey and other NAVSEA
and Navy offices to carry out
their mission.
"SSLCM Activity will exe-
cute the complex task of maxi-
mizing the material readiness


of our current Fleet by ensur-
ing each and every ship in our
inventory is ready to respond to
their missions today, tomorrow,
and well into the 21st century,"
said Vice Adm. Kevin McCoy,
commander of NAVSEA.
"And as we continue to build
our future Fleet, particularly
as our Littoral Combat Ships
come online, every newly com-
missioned ship will be meticu-
lously tracked right out of the
gate to ensure our warfighters,
our taxpayers and our nation get
the most out of these national
assets."
The activity will be headquar-
tered at NNSY in Portsmouth.
Initially staffed with about 40
people, the activity is expected
to grow in the near future.
SEA 21 manages the com-


plete life-cycle support for all
non-nuclear surface ships and is
the principal interface with the
Surface Warfare Enterprise.
The directorate is responsible
for the maintenance and mod-
ernization of non-nuclear sur-
face ships currently operating in
the fleet.
Through planned modern-
ization and upgrade programs,
SEA 21 will equip today's sur-
face ships with the latest tech-
nologies and systems to keep
them in the Fleet though their
service lives. Additionally, SEA
21 oversees the ship inactivation
process, including transfers or
sales to friendly foreign navies,
inactivation and or disposal.


DoD Promotes Participation In World No Tobacco Day


From DoD
The last Monday in May is
Memorial Day, a day set aside
to honor the men and women
who gave their lives in service
to their country. Living freedom
to the fullest by reducing unnec-
essary health risks is one way to
honor the memories of those
who've died.
Just around the corner
from Memorial Day is World
No Tobacco Day (WNTD)
on May 31, sponsored by the
World Health Organization.
This year, for the first time, the
Department of Defense (DoD)
is endorsing the observance of
WNTD by encouraging military
personnel to participate. The
effort is part of the DoD's mul-
tiyear tobacco cessation cam-
paign, Quit Tobacco-Make
Everyone Proud.
"On Memorial Day, when we
reflect on the sacrifices our fall-
en heroes made so that we can


live free, it seems that World No
Tobacco Day comes at a perfect
time," said Capt. David Arday,
a physician and U.S. Public
Health Service officer and chair-
man of the DoD Alcohol and
Tobacco Advisory Committee.
"Freedom from tobacco addic-
tion is not a sacrifice; it's a way
to live our lives to honor those
who gave us our freedom. This
is a great opportunity for ser-
vicemen and women to connect
to others on their installation,
across the country and around
the globe in a worldwide event
to take a public stand and make
a personal commitment in the
fight against tobacco."
Health promotions staff mem-
bers at installations are encour-
aging their patients and clients
to sign the online pledge at
http://www.ucanquit2.org/facts/
WNTD and accept the chal-
lenge to become tobacco free on
WNTD. There are free promo-

A new security initiative from the Navy Marine
Corps Intranet (NMCI) is helping the Department
of the Navy (DON) protect its critical and sensi-
tive data safe from unauthorized access.
The Data at Rest (DAR) initiative uses informa-
tion security software, Guardian Edge, to encrypt
all files and folders on NMCI workstations and
removable storage. This software will prevent
unauthorized access if the devices are compro-
mised, stolen or lost.
"Data at rest" is information residing on stor-
age media, such as an internal hard drive, exter-
nal USB hard drive or compact disc. NMCI's
Guardian Edge encryption security software
ensures users are compliant with both Department
of Defense (DoD) and (DON) mandates. NMCI
is among the first defense IT networks to begin
enterprise deployment and work towards meeting
the mandate concerning the protection of data at
rest.
Starting in February, NMCI began pushing the
Guardian Edge software to its users. With a suc-
cess rate to date of approximately 99.7 percent,
users' data, files and folders are now more secure
with little to no interruption to their day-to-day
activities.
The Guardian Edge software provides two
key capabilities: full encryption of worksta-
tion hard drives and mandatory encryption of
all data saved to removable storage devices such
as external hard drives, CDs, and DVDs using
either passwords or Common Access Card certifi-
cates. Users are still able to de-encrypt files from
removable storage regardless of whether their
computer has Guardian Edge installed.
The increase in security allows users more
flexibility in transporting data knowing it was


tional and informational items
available to order or download
online to help stage events,
plus specially designed e-cards
visitors can send to encourage
friends and family to give up
tobacco. Military personnel also
can use the e-card to announce
their intention to quit.
The campaign headquarters
at http://www.ucanquit2.org
offers the latest high-tech ways
to connect with others on the
road to becoming tobacco free.
The site has launched a Twitter
page at http://www.twitter.com/
ucanquit2, and anyone who
signs up can follow the site's
activities and news, including
tobacco and other related health
information.
Visitors can take advantage of
other social networking oppor-
tunities, such as being a friend
at MySpace, tuning in to the
videos and making comments at
the YouTube page and becom-


protected from unauthorized access should the
data become lost or stolen.
"We are very pleased with the success of the
roll-out thus far," said Capt. Scott Weller, NMCI
Program Manager. "NMCI is one of the DoD's
most secure networks. Data at Rest is part of
increasing the network's security posture and pro-
tecting Navy and Marine Corps data."
The Data at Rest deployment consists of two
phases: Phase One features both hard drive and
removable storage device encryption. A slow
rollout will span several months until all seats
are completed in summer 2009. Phase Two will
activate the pre-boot authentication (PBA) feature
in the Guardian Edge software, requiring CAC-
based end user authentication when the worksta-
tion is powered on. PBA will be activated begin-
ning in summer 2009 with completion of all seats
across the enterprise no later than September.
As DAR begins to encrypt all files and fold-
ers, NMCI users will require more disciplined
security behavior in how they access and share
data. For this reason, all Marine Corps and Navy
personnel are advised to take the DAR encryption
security training prior to the rollout to learn more
about the government requirements mandating all
data at rest be secured and protected. Training,
backup tips, site deployment schedules and other
DAR information are available on the NMCI por-
tal website, Homeport.
NMCI is part of the program portfolio of
the Program Executive Office for Enterprise
Information Systems (PEO-EIS). For more infor-
mation contact Denise Deon, PEO-EIS Public
Affairs Officer, at denise.deon(@navy.mil.

ing a fan of the campaign's
Facebook page. On Facebook,
there's a new feature that allows
users to announce to others
they've quit and to congratulate
friends and family who've make
the commitment to quit tobacco.
For those who want their own
private area to concentrate on
tobacco cessation, the campaign
Web site offers users "My Quit
Space," where they can create
a customized quit plan and cal-
endar. Blogging options include
starting a private blog or pub-


lishing it for others to read and
make comments.
The site has gone mobile,
which is perfect for the enlist-
ed community. Users can
point their mobile browsers to
http://m.ucanquit2.org, the new
mobile ucanquit2 Web site, to
find cessation programs across
America to help them quit
tobacco and access important
tobacco cessation news.
Getting support from others is
an important weapon in winning
the battle against tobacco, which


is recognized as an obstacle to
optimal readiness and perfor-
mance for the armed services.
"Committing to participate in
World No Tobacco Day on May
31, 2009, is a one-day test run
for what could be the beginning
of a tobacco-free lifestyle for
servicemen and women," Arday
said.
Visit TRICARE's Web page
geared to quit tobacco at http://
