The Active Duty Fund Drive
for Navy-Marine Corps Relief
Society ended May 15 and sur-
passed all expectations.
NS Mayport Commanding
Officer, Capt. Aaron Bowman
presented a check for
$240,612.50 to Bill Kennedy,
Director of Navy-Marine Corps
Relief Society on May 21. The
money raised far surpassed
by a large margin the goal of
More than 40 individual com-
mands and units participated.
"The overwhelming enthu-
siasm and support during the
campaign was remarkable,"
said Kennedy. BMC Seward
and QM1 Gunner of Harbor
Operations were the lead coor-
dinators for Bowman, this
year's Active Duty Fund Drive
Chairman. Through their tire-
less efforts and working closely
with all key personnel, not only
was the goal met, it was sur-
passed by more than $40,000.
Not only is Naval Station
Mayport the 'finest service to
the finest fleet,' but the finest in

Ray Mabus, former Mississippi governor and
U.S. ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,
was sworn in May 19 as the 75th secretary of the
Leading the Navy and Marine Corps, Mabus
will be responsible for an annual budget in excess
of $150 billion and almost 90,0,00 people.
The secretary of the Navy is responsible for
conducting all the affairs of the Department of the
Navy, including recruiting, organizing, supplying,
equipping, training and mobilizing. Additionally,
he oversees the construction, outfitting and repair
of naval ships, equipment and facilities and is
responsible for the formulation and implementa-
tion of policies and programs that are consistent
with the national security policies and objectives
established by the president and the secretary of


Prior to joining the administration of President
Barack Obama, Mabus served in a variety of top
posts in government and the private sector. In
1988, Mabus was elected governor of Mississippi
where he stressed education and job creation.
In 1994, he was appointed ambassador to Saudi
Arabia, where during his tenure, the Kingdom
officially abandoned the boycott of U.S. busi-
nesses that trade with Israel. Mabus also was
chairman and chief executive officer of Foamex,
a large manufacturing company, and also served
as a Navy surface warfare officer aboard the
cruiser USS Little Rock.
Mabus is a native of Ackerman, Miss., and
received a bachelor's degree from the University
of Mississippi, a master's degree from Johns
Hopkins University, and a law degree from
Harvard Law School.

The chief of naval personnel
released NAVADMIN 149-09
May 20 to announce the lat-
est changes to Navy uniform
policies including maternity
uniforms, physical fitness uni-
forms, the Air Force Space
Badge and changes to uniform
board membership.
"Uniform policy changes are
a direct result of fleet feedback
to the uniform board," said
Rob Carroll, from the Navy's
Uniform Matters Office. "The
input Sailors provide is critical
to providing professional high
quality uniforms."
In answer to that fleet feed-
back, the Navy is developing a
new element to the physical fit-
ness uniform (PTU) to replace
or augment current Navy sweat
pants and shirts. This fall, a
competitive wear-test of two
Navy designed PTU fitness
suits will determine their suit-
ability as mandatory uniform
components. Fleet introduction
is expected during fiscal year
Additionally, a new high per-
formance version of the physi-
cal training uniform will be
made available this winter. The
optional PTU shirt and short
will be manufactured from a
"name brand" company and
will follow the existing manner
and occasion for wear as the
standard fitness gear.
Another major component
of the NAVADMIN addresses
changes to the maternity uni-
form policy. Sailors E-1 to E6

Pregnant Sailors
are temporarily
authorized to
wear the chief/
officer service

who are pregnant, are tempo-
rarily authorized to wear the
service khaki maternity blouse
currently worn by chiefs and
officers with the winter blue
maternity slacks or skirt. This
is an interim authorization until
the improved single design
maternity blouse for all ranks is
introduced to the fleet in fiscal
year 2010.
includes new rules for uniform
board membership to enhance
fleet representation and publi-
cize the fact that Sailors can no
longer wear the Air Force Space
badge due to its reclassification
as an Air Force qualification.

Chaplain's Corner

"I shall return!" These words
had a prophetic ring when
spoken by General Douglas
MacArthur on March 11, 1942.
The set of circumstances,
which surrounded the General's
remark, were at best hopeless.
Those were difficult days for
America. You see, the Japanese
Imperial Army had success-
fully invaded the Philippines.
World War II was raging in the
Pacific and the U.S. mainland
itself was threatened with inva-
sion or direct attack. General
MacArthur, one of our pre-
miere military minds, was in
danger of being captured by
the Japanese. Consequently,
President Roosevelt ordered
him to evacuate the Philippines.
The General reluctantly obeyed.
Indeed, few of us can appre-
ciate those dark moments. For
those who lived through those
days "I shall return" had a spe-

Chaplain Joe Molina
CDS40 Staff Chaplain
cial appeal. The words were
uttered with conviction. The
words were full of certain-
ty. The brevity of its message
underlined the clarity and com-
mitment of the speaker. There
was no question in anybody's
mind that it was a promise that
would be kept. The promise

gave Americans hope and the
people of the Philippines hung
to every word of that promise.
Everyone knew, they just knew,
that he would return.
The prophecy was fulfilled
on 29 October 1944 when
General MacArthur, "The
American Caesar," disem-
barked on Filipino soil and said
"People of the Philippines, I
have returned." It was a per-
fectly orchestrated and dra-
matic triumphal return! It was
a media event. MacArthur's
return was captured in pictures
and films by newspapers and
newsreels. Although total vic-
tory was not yet won, "I have
returned" became symbolic of
victory during WWII. Such is
the power of a promise kept!
As I celebrated Memorial
Day this week, while embarked
on board the USS Kauffman
(FFG59), I took a few moments

to reflect upon the promis-
es kept by the brave men and
women of our armed forces,
many of which have given their
last full measure to ensure that
the promise of freedom and
democracy is kept alive. To be
sure, keeping our promises has
an incalculable affect on the
outcome of events (historical
and otherwise).
A promise made and a prom-
ise kept are two sides of the
same coin. One assumes the
other. A promise made and a
promise kept has transforma-
tional power. While a promise
made gives hope to the hearer,
its fulfillment empowers the
recipient of the promise to rise
to new levels of personal fulfill-
ment. Life takes on new and
exciting possibilities. Victory
can become complete. As one
anticipates the fulfillment of a
promise, plans are made as new

possibilities unfold.
In contrast, unfulfilled prom-
ises demoralize and rob us of
life's special experiences.
When a promise is not kept,
dreams are shattered. When
vows are broken relationships
are deeply scarred and some-
times destroyed. Our children
are especially vulnerable to the
promises and commitments we
make but never fulfill.
Why do we need to be
reminded of the importance of
keeping our promises? Well, we
don't have to go very far to see
the results of broken promises.
Court dockets are overloaded
with lawsuits. Rates of divorce
continue to hover at about fifty
percent. Our adolescent popula-
tion is plagued with alcohol and
drug abuse. Domestic violence
shatters lives and hearts in many
households and every now and
then the blight of racial discord

disrupts our land. The list can
go on. But please... allow me
to remind you that I am an eter-
nal optimist, otherwise I would
not be in my profession. I truly
believe that a person can decide
to be a promise keeper. I also
believe that there are enough
promise keepers in the land to
set an example and make a dif-
ference. Undoubtedly, there's
plenty of room for improve-
In his engaging book, The
Power of a Promise Kept, (focus
on the family, 1995), Gregg
Lewis points out that being a
person of ethical integrity is one
of the outstanding characteris-
tics of a Promise Keeper. While
his book is addressed to men,
ethical integrity must be equally
practiced by both genders if we
are to be promise keepers.
Faithfully yours (I promise),

Homefront in Focus

Life aboard a Navy ship is
mysterious to me. I wondered
what it was like for my hus-
band. My embed aboard the
COMFORT answered many
questions like, "How do you
get into the top rack?" Answer:
become an olympic gymnast.
There were many things that
struck me about ship life like
the seemingly constant chat-
ter over the ship's PA system;
the 1MC. Whether announcing
decks secured for flight opera-
tions, reveille, 'serial call' (I
still don't know what is) or pag-
ing individuals, there was con-
stant communication.
There are some things com-
mon to all ships: Drills. The
COMFORT had fire drills

Military Spouse Contributor
and a 'life boat drill' while I
was aboard. A life boat drill
impacts the entire crew. For me
that meant an interesting jaunt
throughout the ship. Let me
explain a little about a ship's

structure. Each ship has a main
deck called the "First Deck."
Each level below that is num-
bered successively. Decks above
that main deck are labeled 01
Level, 02 Level, such that 01 is
one level above the main deck.
02 is two levels above and so
forth. In the event of a life boat
drill I was to muster (report)
with the Public Affairs office
(PAO) on Deck four where I
would then grab a life jacket
and proceed to my assigned life
boat. I mustered on Deck Four,
grabbed my attractive life jacket
and proceeded with the crew of
the PAO to our assigned place
- the 03 level. In case you
missed the subtlety that was
seven flights. It was a proud

moment as I stood in formation
- panting.
An impressive part of ship
life is UNREP or Underway
Replenishment where a supply
ship delivers supplies. I discov-
ered amazing things about this
process. I thought both ships
would drop anchor then trans-
fer goods. In reality both ships
are moving at about 12 knots
throughout the entire process,
and approximately 165 feet
apart. Once aligned the supply
ship, the USNS PERRY 'shot
across' lines that would con-
nect the two ships and provide
for the transfer of fuel. Literally
a gun shoots what resembles
a very large bean bag with a
line attached. The mariners on

the COMFORT scrambled to
catch the line, pulling it across
and securing it to the ship.
From there fueling takes place.
During the fueling process the
helicopter from the COMFORT
flew between the two vessels
transferring pallets of supplies.
It is an amazing process.
I spent an hour in the scullery
with enlisted who were 'crank-
ing.' Cranking is when junior
enlisted are tasked to the galley.
Though trained as corpsmen
these 'kids' had a blast making
the best of doing dishes. Thanks
for the fun!
Broadcasting from the ship
drove home another aspect of
deployment: missing family.
Crew members were invited to

send a shout out to family mem-
bers on a broadcast for special
days they are missing. The
response was huge. Officer and
enlisted, male and female met
me in the PAO office to send
their messages home. I realized
how very difficult it is for our
service members to miss special
days. Many choked back tears
as they expressed their love...
and so did I.

Sweet Land of Liberty

Nobody Does It Like Disney! Part Two

By Erica I. Pefia-Vest
Travel Columnist
In the last week's column, I talked about
Disneyland with the promise that this week
I would address Disney's other properties in
Southern California.
Disney's California adventure was first
opened in 2001, so if you haven't been to Disney
since then you are in for a treat. The Disney
Imagineering team wanted to create a park that
represented all the facets of the Golden State,
from a recreation of the Golden Gate Bridge
that marks the park's entrance to a Hollywood
backlot. Adding this extra park allowed Disney
to import popular rides from its Florida parks
and add some thrill rides for the older, adven-
ture-seeking crowd that wouldn't have fit in at
There are two major rides that can't be missed.
California Screamin' is a rollercoaster situated
in the boardwalk area of Disney's California
Adventure. The boardwalk has all the sights,
sounds and smells of a typical amusement park,
but the rollercoaster is anything but typical. As
only Disney can, they have taken a hallmark ride
and raised the bar a notch, leaving guests breath-
less as the coaster stops at the end of the ride.
The second hallmark ride is the Grizzly River
Rapids, Disney's version of the classic log flume
ride. But once again, Disney has taken an old
staple and raised the stakes. Instead of riding

a classic gondola, Disney's ride features round
rafts that spin and twirl as they are bounced
along in the turbulence of the flume. There is no
such luck as picking a seat where you are more
or less likely to get wet, as the rafts spin with
the mercilessness of a roulette wheel, meaning
that no two rides will ever be the same.
Along with California Adventure, anoth-
er great addition to the Disney property is
Downtown Disney. Disney has added a street
between their two parks that is open to the pub-
lic where you can do some serious Disney and
non-Disney shopping and sample some of the
best cuisine of Anaheim. World of Disney is the
ultimate Disney store where you can find almost
anything you want Disney-wise under one
roof. I recommend you save some shopping
money for Downtown Disney. It conveniently
makes both souvenirs and collectables easy to
find and also brings your some of your preferred
mall staples to one area making it the perfect
ending to a day at the park.
Now let's get to my favorite part. I get to
travel extensively both as a hobby and for work.
In my travels I get to visit some of the best and
most famous restaurants in the nation. As a
food critic for a military newspaper and other
publications, you can surmise that I know when
I find great food and I know when I find great
service. I was thrilled on my recent trip to
Disneyland Resort to find that three of my new

favorite restaurants are located at Downtown
Disney. Catal Restaurant and Uva Bar, Naples
Ristorante e Pizzeria and Tortilla Jo's Mexican
Restaurant are three phenomenal restaurants in
their own right yet in very different ways. Catal
Restaurant is a fine dining establishment with a
Mediterranean menu. My party ordered various
appetizers and meals and everything we tasted
was delectable. Normally, I would tell you that
the highlight of any restaurant is the meal. At
Catal, there is something that outshines their
food their service. If you ever have a chance
to visit, indulge in a culinary experience you
won't soon forget.
During my visit to Naples Ristorante, I found
some of the best pizza I've ever tasted. They
have an authentic Italian menu that leaves you
wishing you had time to try one of everything!
My greatest surprise came from visiting Tortilla
Jo's. It had come highly recommended by locals
but I was skeptical. As a Hispanic woman who
grew up eating authentic Mexican food prepared
in my mother's and grandmother's kitchens, the
last place I would have expected to find great
Mexican food is at a theme park, but I was
wrong. Not only was Tortilla Jo's a fantastic
surprise, I enjoyed it so much, I would travel
al the way to Anaheim just to eat there. It was
that good! Even though they are probably most
famous for their outdoor cantina that serves over
100 different tequilas, I think their homemade

corn tortillas, that are the staple of every meal,
are their strongest selling point. Definitely not
something that should be missed.
With Disney Parks offering military members
free admission and discounted admission for
friends and family (see ITT for more details),
there has never been a better time to visit the
Disneyland Resort. One of the most prohibiting
factors of a Disney vacation is cost. This year,
the Walt Disney Company, has made it more
affordable for members of the military. This is
the time to visit. This is the time to relive those
childhood memories or maybe create brand new
ones. With free admission, discounted hotels,
discounted activities and great restaurants, we'd
be missing the chance of a lifetime to not visit a
Disney Park this year.
I don't hold stock in the company, I'm not
related to the management and I don't get any-
thing out of this recommendation. What I can
tell you is that the 'magic' they talk about in
their marketing campaign is real. You will feel
like a kid again, you will love the look on your
kids' faces when they see it for the first time,
you will eat some of the best food and you will
have a great time. But most of all, you WILL
experience the magic, because as I have said
before, "Nobody does it like Disney!"

Help Protect Sea Turtles, Turn Off Lights ,

From NSMayport Security
Naval Station Mayport beach-
es are a great place to live and
visit for both people and endan-
gered species of sea turtles.
It is just a little tougher to find
a good place to "nest" if you are
an endangered sea turtle.
Turtle nesting takes May 31
through Oct. 31. However,
their safety depends on you.
Hatchlings find their way to
the sea by light clues, such as
brightness. They instinctive-
ly crawl towards the brightest
light and become disoriented if
artificial lights are shining from
Artificial light from beach-
front homes, streetlights or even
flashlights can attract the hatch-
lings away from the safety of
the water and lead them to their
Lights and people disorientate
female turtles coming ashore to
nest. If one is sighted coming
ashore, contact the base Wildlife
officer and remain clear, stay
quiet, do not use a light source
and don't allow anyone near her
to disturb her nesting.
How can you help? By sim-
ply keeping our beaches as dark
and quiet as possible throughout
the nesting period. Consider the
following suggestions:
*Turn off all unnecessary
lights and do not use flashlights
without a red lenses.
*Reposition the source of any
light fixture so it is not visible
from the beach.
*Use motion detectors on out-
side lights for security purposes.
*Place timers on lights so they
are off by 10 p.m.
*Close all Navy Lodge, BOQ
and house curtains at sunset that
face the beach.
And Remember
*All special functions con-
ducted on Naval Station
Mayport beach areas during
nesting season must be cleared
through the Wildlife officer



Is Here
Are you ready for summer?
The 2009 Atlantic Hurricane
season begins in June, and
though the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA), is forecasting a likely
"near-normal" season, being
prepared is the best way to keep
you and your family safe in the
event of a natural disaster. Even
if you are not one of the more
than 35 million people who live
in the regions most affected
by hurricanes, being informed
of and prepared for what you
should do in any emergency or
disaster is a smart bet.
Keep it up to date and make
sure everything works and your
food and water has not expired.
Along with food, water, a bat-
tery operated weather radio,
flashlights and first aid supplies,
include any medical necessities
you may need in your kit. Keep
in mind that medical assistance
may not be immediately avail-
able after a disaster. Items to
include in kits for each family
*Copies of each family
member's uniformed services
ID card (or sponsor's name
and Social Security number),
Medicare card or other health
insurance card, if applicable
*Copies of family members'
names, addresses, phone num-
bers, etc.
*Copies of medical records
for each family member
*A list of primary care man-
agers, other doctors' names and
phone numbers
*Emergency contact names
and phone numbers
*TRICARE Regional and
pharmacy contractors and
Medicare contacts
*A list of known prescription
medications and doses
*A list of each family mem-
ber's allergies
*A 30-day supply of prescrip-

tion medications
*Non-prescription drugs such
as pain relievers, anti-diarrhea
medication, antacids, laxatives,
itch control creams, etc.
*Style, model and serial num-
bers for any medical devices
*Extra batteries for wheel-
chairs and hearing aids
*Any personal items
For more information and
tips visit www.ready.gov/ or
TRICARE's disaster relief Web
page at: www.tricare.mil/disas-

*Restrict leaving large
holes and rutting on the
beach area.
*All dogs on the beach
must be on a leash at all
*Never touch a nest-
ing female or emerging
hatchlings. These actions
are a violation of federal
and state laws. Only per-
mit holders are allowed
to tourch or move a sea
Never try to push a live
sea turtle back into the
water. If the turtle is out

of the water and on the
beach, keep the shell
wet with a damp towel
or sprinkle water over
*Notify the Wildlife
officer, Beaches Sea
Turtle Patrol or the
Florida Marine Patrol if
you find a live or dead
sea turtle unless the tur-
tle has a red "X" on its
shell indicating it has
already been checked
by the appropriate
authority and is wait-
ing for burial by beach
sanitation units.

RGB Returns To Mayport

After AFRICOM Deployment

By Ensign Rajiv Seth
USSRobertG. ,,,j PAO
The guided-missile frigate
USS Robert G. Bradley (FFG
49) returned to Mayport on May
23 after a six-month deploy-
ment to the Sixth Fleet area of
responsibility, where the ship
made more than 20 port visits to
countries throughout Africa and
the Mediterranean Sea.
Bradley departed Nov. 21 in
support of Africa Partnership
Station (APS) and Theater
Security Cooperation (TSC) to
build partner capacity for mari-
time safety and security. The
mission was accomplished by
conducting countless training
workshops, flight-deck recep-
tions, official office visits, com-
munity relations projects, and
many other types of engage-
ments with regional allies and
After stopping briefly in Rota,
Spain for logistics, the ship
began its mission in Mindelo,
Cape Verde and continued
south along the western coast of
Africa and visited Sierra Leone,
Senegal, Benin, Equatorial
Guinea, and Gabon. The visit

to Bata, Equatorial Guinea
marked the first-ever visit of
a U.S. Navy ship. Bradley
then reached the southern most
point of Africa, Cape Town,
South Africa. Once on the
eastern side of Africa, the ship
conducted the first ever APS
visits to Comoros, Tanzania,
Kenya, Djibouti, and the first
ever pier-side visit to Maputo,
In Djibouti, Gen. William E.
"Kip" Ward, Commander, U.S.
Africa Command visited and
spoke to the crew of Bradley.
"You need to know that what
you have been doing and where
you have gone has been noted,
has been paid attention to, but
most importantly, has mattered,"
said Gen. Ward. "Mattered
in the fact that our nation, the
United States of America, has
been well served because of
what you've done in carrying
out your day-to-day mission."
After Djibouti, the ship con-
tinued north, by transiting the
Suez Canal, and arrived in the
Mediterranean Sea. Bradley
conducted port visits in
Morocco, Algeria, and Malta,

which included training and
engagements with host-nation
militaries, and also enjoyed a
liberty port visit in Italy. During
the transit to Morocco, the ship
marked its successful circum-
navigation of Africa.
During a visit to Crete,
Bradley participated in Phoenix
Express, a multinational exer-
cise conducted with various
European and North African
countries. The ship also held
a Change of Command cer-
emony where Cmdr. Timothy
Sparks of Houston, TX relieved
Cmdr. Clinton Carroll, of

Upon completion of Phoenix
Express, the ship headed west,
out of the Strait of Gibraltar,
and crossed the Atlantic Ocean.
After six months being away
from home, Bradley Sailors
manned the rails as the ship
pulled into Mayport Naval
Station for a reunion with loved
ones on the pier.

Doyle's JO Proves Tactical Agility, Skil

From USS Doyle Public. "
A junior officer aboard the
guided-missile frigate USS
Doyle (FFG 39) received the
Naval Surface Forces Atlantic
Officer Tactician of the Year
Award May 7.
On Doyle's flight deck just
hours before the ship departed
Mayport to begin its deploy-
ment, Lt.j.g. Dan Newman
received the award for excel-
lence in tactics. Capt. Glenn
Zeiders, Commander, Destroyer
Squadron (DESRON) 14 pre-
sented Newman with the award.
In its third annual competi-
tion for the Tactician of the Year
Award, the Surface Warfare
Development Group (SWDG)
sought out the tactical action
officer (TAO) qualified junior
officer who signified the best-
of-the-best in tactical excellence
in the Atlantic Fleet.
Newman, who serves as
Doyle's electronics material
officer, received a nomination
for his innovations and accom-
plishments in tactics from his
commanding officer and was
subsequently chosen as the

nominee for DESRON 14. In
the final stages of the competi-
tion against nine other nomi-
nees, Newman submitted his
point paper and participated in
an interview process outlining
how to employ in-depth oil plat-
form defense tactics. Newman's
was chosen as the top sub-
mission, and he received the
award from Zeiders on behalf
of Rear Adm. K. M. Quinn,
"Lt. j. g. Newman's propos-
al was impressive; from tacti-
cal innovations and outstand-
ing watchstanding onboard
USS Doyle, to his excellent
white paper and brief on how
to change oil platform defense
tactics," stated Quinn in the
award presentation letter. "Lt.
j. g. Newman thoroughly dem-
onstrated the traits of a superb
tactician and surface warfare
Likewise, Doyle's
Commanding Officer Cmdr.
John M. Zuzich had great praise
for Newman.
"I am so proud of Dan, not
only because of this award, but
of his ability to thoughtfully

address every problem pre-
sented," said Zuzich. "When
we were designated OPLAT (oil
platform) defense commander
for the multinational exercise
Joint Warrior, Dan developed
and refined his in-depth defense
tactics. I know his hard work
can now help others succeed in
this important mission area."
Newman thanked his ship-
mates for their role in his
"I'm honored to have
received the award on behalf of
the captain and crew of Doyle,"
said Newman. "Many thanks
to my fellow warfighters for
their knowledge, expertise and
professionalism. "This award

Doyle Underway For Southern Seas Deployment

From USSDoyle Public, -"
The guided-missile frigate
USS Doyle (FFG 39) departed
Naval Station Mayport May 7 to
being the Southern Seas deploy-
ment to Latin America.
"It's bittersweet considering I
had to leave my husband, fam-
ily and friends along with all
of the comforts of home, but
considering it's my first deploy-
ment, I'm really excited that
we are going out to finally do
what we are supposed to do,"
said Ensign Heather Golightly,
Doyle's force protection officer.
The 2009 Southern
Seas deployment supports
U.S. Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM)'s Partnership
of the Americas strategy, which
emphasizes interoperability,
regional stability, and building
regional partnerships through-
out the SOUTHCOM Area of
Focus. That area encompass-

es the Caribbean, Central and
South America and surrounding
waters, where Southern Seas
2009 is scheduled to be a six-
month deployment conducted
from April to October.
Southern Seas will con-
sist of three phases: UNITAS
Gold; exercise Southern Seas;
PANAMAX; and routine theater
security cooperation events.
Before leaving Mayport,
Doyle participated in UNITAS
Gold, the 50th iteration of the
annual multinational partner-
ship building exercise, April
20-May 5. Doyle worked
alongside maritime forces from
Argentina, Brazil, Canada,
Chile, Colombia, the Dominican
Republic, Ecuador, Germany,
Mexico, Peru, the United States
and Uruguay.
During Southern Seas, U.S.
and partner nations will conduct
training on anti-submarine, anti-

ship, and anti-air warfare tech-
niques. Doyle will work with
allied navies to practice multi-
ship maneuvering exercises,
helicopter operations, personnel
exchanges, and various other
interoperability and cooperation
fostering exercises and counter-
ing of unconventional threats
such as counter-illicit traffick-
ing, piracy, and fishery viola-
In addition to participating in
multinational maritime exercis-
and the Southern Seas exercis-
es, Doyle will be stopping in
various ports throughout Latin
America. Visits to Honduras,
Peru, Chile, Colombia, Panama,
Curacao and Trinidad Tobago,
will allow Doyle's crew to learn
first-hand about other countries'
cultures, and historic back-
grounds. Doyle will take part
in continued training, as well

as host receptions and person-
nel exchanges to facilitate the
learning and friendship.
"I'm excited to see South
America and go to places that
I've never seen or been to
before," said Sonar Technician
Surface 3rd Class James
Callahan, a Sailor aboard Doyle.
"I will get to go where none of
my friends or family have been.
I'm going to take a lot of pic-
tures to take the great memories

CO Returns


USS Underwood

From USS Underwood (FFG 36) Public,.
In a rare opportunity, USS Underwood (FFG
36) played host to the Captain who commis-
sioned the frigate almost 26 years ago. On Retired
Capt. Andrew C. Beck, Jr. visited Underwood on
May 1 at the Atlantic Marine facility, where the
ship is currently in dry dock undergoing main-
tenance. Accompanying Captain and Mrs. Beck
were their friends, retired Commander and Mrs.
Oke Shannon.
The official party was welcomed aboard the
barge, where Beck participated in a ceremony,
distributing awards to Underwood Sailors that
were earned during their recent Counter Narcotics
Terrorism deployment.
The "plank-owner" commanding officer was
escorted to the ship for a tour by the current
Captain, Cmdr. Wesley A. Smith.
With the ship out of water, it afforded the two
captains a great chance to inspect the hull and
compare the material condition of the ship after
26 years of service.
The tour continued to other spaces inside the

ship, such as the Wardroom, Combat Information
Center, Central Control Station and Bridge. The
former captain said he was thoroughly impressed
and pleased with how well the ship had been
maintained since his last visit back in 1985.
At the conclusion of the tour, the guests were
taken to the commanding officer's cabin for
refreshments, and a special surprise.
Smith revealed a box, passed down from CO to
CO throughout the years, containing original pic-
tures and documents from Beck's commissioning
tour aboard Underwood.
Beck was presented with copies of several pho-
tos from that time that he had never seen before,
including one of his commissioning day speech.
Before leaving, he was thrilled to note that
while in command he always strived to make
any visitor feel welcome aboard his ship, and
that this "tradition of hospitality for any guest of
Underwood continues to this day."
Beck and his wife, Patricia, currently reside in
St. Johnsbury, Vermont.

Simpson Sets NMCRS Record

By USS Simpson Public, -,
USS Simpson's crew raised
$18,510 for the Navy Marine
Corps Relief Society, nearly
three times Simpson's previous
record and more than 450 per-
cent of this year's goal.
Chief Boatswain's Mates
Daniel Bates headed up the
drive on board Simpson. He
ensured there was 100 percent
contact with the crew, explain-
ing the importance of the drive
to everyone on board the ship.
His efforts led to a contribu-
tion from more than 60 percent
of the crew. Bates instilled a
sense of competition between
the different divisions and
departments and also offered
prizes for the biggest contrib-
utors in order to motivate the
crew to give more.
One final incentive for the
crew was the Commanding
Officer, Cmdr. Ed Kaiser, and

the Command Senior Chief,
Phil Rogers, promised to shave
their head if Simpson reached
the goal of $10,000.
Simpson greatly surpassed
the goal, and Kaiser and Rogers
are now bald.
"I was only a tool that help
good hearted shipmates take
care of shipmates. The real
story is 'TEAM Simpson' and
our commitment to excellence,"
said Bates.
Seaman Brandon Spradling
was the most generous contribu-
tor, donating more than$1,800.
Spradling said of his dona-
tion, "Pretty much the biggest
reason I gave as much as I did
is because my cousin returned
from Iraq with Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder and his wife

USS Carney, CSG 10 Sink EX-Spica

By Ensign Emily Rhatican
USS Carney PAO
In the early evening of May
6, the EX-Spica sank to the
ocean floor after receiving fire
from the ships and aircraft of
Carrier Strike Group 10, includ-
ing gun fire and Harpoon mis-
siles from USS Carney (DDG
USS Carney (DDG 64) spent
several weeks preparing for the

SINKEX by running multiple
real-time simulations, flawless-
ly integrating all of its testing
systems, and coordinating with
USS Hue City (CG 66), USS
Winston S. Churchill (DDG
81), USS Oscar Austin (DDG
79), USS Harry S. Truman
(CVN 75), and HNOMS Roald
After a "month of gruesome
training," Operations Specialist

1st Class Desmond Glee said he
was "thrilled to finally get the
call to take the [Harpoon mis-
sile] shot."
Many Operations Specialists
never have the opportunity to
fire a missile during their stint

USS Carney (DDG 64) and
HMCS St. Johns broadened
their Sailors' professional
knowledge by cross-decking
three Sailors on May 11.
Carney Sailors, Ensign
Ryan Branham, Chief Fire
Controlman Dale Stiles, and
Engineman Fireman Eric
Crugnale enjoyed St. Johns'
excellent hospitality and pro-
fessionalism as they were wel-
comed aboard as crew mem-
bers for the day. Carney and St.
Johns cross-decked while while
steaming south together towards
the Submarine Commanders
Course 020.
The crew exchange allowed
Carney Sailors to compare
their daily life on board a U.S.
warship to the experiences of
Canadian sailors on board St.
Johns, and each Sailor observed
traditions and practices different
from their daily routine.
Branham was interested in the
different organization structure
of the Canadian ship, especially
the delineation of duties among

RGB Sailors Go To School

By Ensign Rajiv Seth
USSRobert G. 5 .,,
Sailors of USS Robert G.
Bradley (FFG 49) successfully
completed nine college level
courses while on deployment
to Africa Command's area of
Nine sociology and philoso-
phy classes consisting of twenty
seven college level credit hours
were administered to 73 Sailors
during the deployment. The
participating Sailors achieved
a 98 percent pass rate, and

342 credit hours were earned.
Additionally, nine service mem-
bers finished all requirements
for a Bachelor of Arts degree.
"To walk into a classroom
while on deployment was an
amazing experience. It allowed
me to pursue my educational
goals while continuing my mili-
tary career," said Cryptologic
Technician Seaman James

ularly scheduled deployment to

ers ignite, but he did watch the
missiles impact their target on
his radar screen.
"It was a very successful
engagement, hitting the EX-
SPICA on her port side, right at
center-of-mass," he claimed.
Alverson said that Carney's
countless man hours paid off in
those three-and-a-half minutes
of flight time.
Lt.j.g. Brian Morris, the
Officer of the Deck for his first


assigned jobs," Branham said.
"The engineers on board have
no task other than engineering.
The bridge watch standers, or
'bridge watch keepers,' are the
only Sailors standing watch on
the bridge, and the only ones
who can have command."
Branham said he was also
impressed with their ship han-
dling skills.
"Their ship handlers are
extremely gifted," he added.
"As I stood on the bridge for
their outbound Mayport transit,
it was very apparent that their
conning officers had received
numerous years of training prior
to arriving on the ship they
had the rudder in hand for the
entire transit."
Stiles said he was interested
in how the Canadians structured
their Combat Systems rates.
While the U.S. Navy separates
rates into different warfare areas
and different equipment sys-
tems, the Canadian Navy sepa-
rates Sailors into "Maintainers"
and "Operators."
Stiles noted that "the
Maintainers work on all relat-
ed systems, such that the same

system for the boat davits in the

"it was a long day, but it was

afternoon, and then CIWS later
in the day."
Stiles said he was also
impressed with the Canadian
sailors' quality of life, and com-
mented on their large lounges
and social differences.
"Their dining facilities are
very small to make space for
large lounges, where the sailors
relax and watch TV after their
meals," he added.
Crugnale had the opportunity
to make rounds with St. Johns
engineering rovers. He noted
that the St. Johns has similar
equipment and watch stations
but different social traditions.
"The enlisted crews mess is
pretty much off limits to chiefs
and officers, who will send a
runner into the mess to retrieve
a Sailor rather than enter the
mess themselves."
He also noted that "almost
everyone on St. Johns was on a
first name basis, which made it
feel a lot more like family."
Branham, Stiles, and Crugnale
brought back to Carney a new-
found respect and appreciation
for both the Canadian Fleet and
the U.S. Navy, and are looking
forward to future cross-decking

Phil Sea Earns Quals During International Training

By MC3 (SW) Joel Carlson
Commander Destroyer Squadron 24
Public. ;-
The guided-missile cruiser
USS Philippine Sea (CG-58)
earned a semi-annual weapons
certification May 19 while par-
ticipating in the multinational
Joint Warrior (JW) exercise.
The cruiser spent a day in
Cape Wrath, where the crew
focused on gaining their naval
surface fire support certification
while remaining an active par-
ticipant in JW.
"One of the main focuses for
Philippine Sea in Joint Warrior
was naval gunfire support," said
Capt. Gary Parriott, command-
ing officer, USS Philippine Sea.
"We did a couple of missions
a few days ago and went back
into the range and were able to
complete our certification exer-

were especially beneficial for "All these different factors
the real-life readiness of the allowed for watchstanders to

really ramp up the tempo and
stress level for the crew," said
Parriott. "It was a great oppor-
tunity for this ship to be part of
this kind of exercise."
The experience was valuable
due to aspects offered by the
international JW setting.
"By having ships participate
in this, we bring them up to a
much higher multi-ship level,"
said Capt. John Kersh, com-
modore, Destroyer Squadron
24. "We have learned from the
Royal Navy and their operating
procedures, and they have mod-
eled some of their training after
how we operate. JW training is
a huge asset on an international
For Parriott, JW training was
unlike any normal training evo-
lution he might encounter near
the United States.
"Joint Warrior allowed us to
add a level of complexity to an

exercise different from what we
can do back in the states. Here,
there were a large number of
ships in a small operating area
with close proximity to land.
Bring in the simulated attacks,
and it's just different train-
ing from what we get back in
Jacksonville or Norfolk."
Parriott also said participat-
ing in a scenario-driven exer-
cise like JW lets Sailors deal
with multiple aspects of mari-
time situations simultaneously,
including geo-politics, media
relations, tactics and wartime
Parriott included that learning
to deal with highly-intense situ-
ations was not the only essential
element JW provided.
"It's incredibly important to
have these relationships with
foreign allies. With the number
of issues going on around the
world, our ability to work with

partner nations is absolutely
valuable," he said.
Exercise Joint Warrior was
a multinational training envi-
ronment incorporating four
U.S. ships with a series of sce-
nario-driven, high-intensity
evolutions. The exercise took
place May 11-21 and focused
on strengthening partnerships
and operability among members
of the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization (NATO). JW also
encompassed fleet irregular
warfare training (FIWT), allow-
ing participants to focus on
counterpiracy, an issue growing
more prevalent in the interna-
tional theater.
Philippine Sea is scheduled
for a 10-month upgrade period
prior to its next deployment.

THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, May 28, 2009 13

2008 Water Quality Report For Mayport Released

From NSMayport Environmental
The Naval Facilities
Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast, Water
Utilities Division, NAS
Jacksonville, Florida, is your
water utility service provider.
We're very pleased to provide
you with this year's Annual
Water Quality Report. We want
to keep you informed about
the excellent water and ser-
vices we have delivered to you
over the past year. Our goal is
and always has been, to pro-
vide to you a safe and depend-
able supply of drinking water.
Our water source is three deep
wells which draw from the
Floridan Aquifer. In 2008, the
Department of Environmental
Protection performed a Source
Water Assessment on our sys-
tem. These assessments were
conducted to provide informa-
tion about any potential sources
of contamination in the vicin-
ity of our wells. The assess-
ment results are available on the
FDEP Source Water Assessment
and Protection Program website
at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.
There are two potential sources
of contamination identified for
this system with low to mod-
erate susceptibility levels. Our
treatment of your water supply
includes aeration for odor con-
trol and chlorination to properly
For further information or
questions concerning this report
or NAVFAC Southeast Water
Utility Division that serves you,
it is requested: Navy on-base
housing residents first contact
their Station Housing Office
and activity employees should
first contact their safety or envi-
ronmental offices. All ques-
tions will be answered through
your activity or directly with
the customer. In addition, Navy
personnel who live in private
residences can also contact
NAVFAC Southeast for general
questions on water quality or to
understand the information pro-
vided in other utility CCRs. To
contact your water utility, please
call NAVFAC Southeast Water
Utilities, at '" '4) 542-6893. We
want our valued customers to be
informed about their water util-
ity. If you want to learn more,
please make that call.
NAVFAC Southeast routinely
monitors for contaminants in
your drinking water accord-
ing to Federal and State laws
and regulations. Except where
indicated otherwise, this table
shows the results of our moni-
toring for the period January
1st to December 31st 2008.
As authorized and approved
by EPA, the State has reduced
monitoring requirements for
certain contaminants to less
often than once per year because
the concentrations of these con-
taminants are not expected to
vary significantly from year to
year. Therefore, some of our
data, though representative, is
more than one year old.
In this table you will find
many terms and abbreviations
you might not be familiar with.
To help you better understand
these terms we've provided the
following definitions:
Action Level (AL) the con-
centration of a contaminant
which, if exceeded, triggers
treatment or other requirements
which a water system must fol-
Maximum Contaminant Level
- The "Maximum Allowed"

(MCL) is the highest level of
a contaminant that is allowed
in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as
feasible using the best available
treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level
Goal The "Goal" (MCLG) is
the level of a contaminant in
drinking water below which
there is no known or expected
risk to health. MCLGs allow
for a margin of safety.
Maximum Residual
Disinfection Level (MRDL) -
The highest level of a disinfec-
tant allowed in drinking water.
There is a convincing evidence
that addition of a disinfectant is
necessary for control of micro-
bial contaminants.
Maximum Residual
Disinfectant Level Goal
(MRDLG) The level of a
drinking water disinfectant
below which there is no known
or expected risk to health.
MRDLGs do not reflect the
benefits of the use of disinfec-

tants to control microbial con-
Not Applicable (N/A) No
value limit or restriction has
been applied to this particular
Parts per billion (ppb) one
part per billion corresponds to
one minute in 2,000 years, or a
single penny in $10,000,000.
Parts per million (ppm) one
part per million corresponds to
one minute in two years or a
single penny in $10,000.
Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) -
picocuries per liter is a measure
of the radioactivity in water.
Coliforms are bacteria that
are naturally present in the
environment and are used as an
indicator that other, potentially-
harmful bacteria may be pres-
ent. Coliforms were found in
more samples than allowed dur-
ing the months of April and July
2008 and this was a warning

of potential problems. Follow-
up sampling confirmed that no
problems existed in your water
The sources of drinking water
(both tap water and bottled
water) include rivers, lakes,
streams, ponds, reservoirs,
springs, and wells. As water
travels over the surface of the
land or through the ground, it
dissolves naturally-occurring
minerals and, in some cases,
radioactive material, and can
pick up substances resulting
from the presence of animals or
from human activity.
Contaminants that may be
present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants,
such as viruses and bacteria,
which may come from sewage
treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock opera-
tions, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants,

such as salts and metals, which
can be naturally-occurring or
result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domes-
tic wastewater discharges, oil
and gas production, mining, or
(C) Pesticides and herbicides,
which may come from a variety
of sources such as agriculture,
urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical con-
taminants, including synthetic
and volatile organic chemicals,
which are by-products of indus-
trial processes and petroleum
production, and can also come
from gas stations, urban storm-
water runoff, and septic sys-
(E) Radioactive contami-
nants, which can be naturally-
occurring or be the result of oil
and gas production and mining

If present, elevated levels of
lead can cause serious health
problems, especially for preg-
nant women and young chil-
dren. Lead in drinking water
is primarily from materials and
components associated with ser-
vice lines and home plumbing.
NAVFAC SE is responsible for
providing high quality drink-
ing water, but cannot control
the variety of materials used in
plumbing components. When
your water has been sitting for
several hours, you can minimize
the potential for lead exposure
by flushing your tap for 30 sec-
onds to 2 minutes before using
water for drinking or cooking.
If you are concerned about lead
in your water, you may wish
to have your water tested.
Information on lead in drink-
ing water, testing methods, and
steps you can take to minimize
exposure is available from the
Safe Drinking Water Hotline or
at http://www.epa.gov/safewa-
In order to ensure that tap
water is safe to drink, EPA
prescribes regulations which
limit the amount of certain con-
taminants in water provided
by public water systems. FDA
regulations establish limits for
contaminants in bottled water
which must provide the same
protection for public health.
All drinking water, includ-
ing bottled water, may reason-
ably be expected to contain at
least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of
contaminants does not neces-
sarily indicate that the water
poses a health risk. More infor-
mation about contaminants
and potential health effects
can be obtained by calling
the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water
Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
