New Law Gives More Protection For Military Renters


By Army Sgt. 1st Class
Michael J. Carden
Special to American Forces Press Service
President Barack Obama's latest
efforts to look after home renters gives
military members additional protection
if the homes they rent are foreclosed, a
Defense Department official said last
week.
The president's Protecting Tenants
at Foreclosure Act of 2009 was signed
into law on May 20. The legislation
ensures that renters aren't forced out of
their homes if foreclosure occurs and a
new landlord takes over.
Renters in every state now have
more time to find new homes. The new
law greatly benefits the military, as the
vast majority of active duty service-
members rent homes throughout the
United States, said Army Col. Shawn


Shumake, director of legal policy in
the Pentagon's personnel and readiness
office.
While about 65 percent of the U.S.
population own their homes, only
about 25 percent of servicemembers
are homeowners, so, foreclosure of
rented homes potentially can affect
most of the military, Shumake said.
"We've got a lot of folks out there
that find that they are in really diffi-
cult positions, because their landlords
are foreclosed on," he explained in a
Pentagon Channel interview. "This law
provides them a measure of security
and protection they didn't previously
have."
The legislation gives renters the right
to stay in their homes throughout the
duration of their lease, he said, unless
the new owner is moving into the


home or if the renter is renting under
a month-to-month lease. Still, the
new law gives renters at least 90 days
before they can be evicted, he noted.
"This act is a protection that's really
powerful and important, and a great
help to our servicemembers," the colo-
nel said. "This provides renters some
particular [and] some important rights
so they're not kicked out on the street
with no notice."
Before the law went into effect, only
individual state protection was avail-
able, or none at all, Shumake said.
There was no consistency from state
to state in the rights people had to fight
immediate eviction after foreclosure.
The inconsistency may have been
difficult on military members, many of
whom are transferred from one state to
another every two to three years. The


federal law now provides a baseline
of protection for all renters, no matter
where they live in the United States,
he said.
"There was no uniformity or any-
thing you could count on," Shumake
said. "[The law] now makes things the
same across the country, and it at least
gives you some basics that you know
are there. At the very least, you know
you're going to get that 90 days of
protection."
The act is one of several laws that
ensure military members are taken care
of as they move from state to state
to new duty stations, Shumake said.
He noted the Joint Federal Travel
Regulation, which defines financial
benefits awarded to servicemembers
upon changing duty stations.
The regulation was amended in


July because of the rising foreclosure
rates to allow the federal government
to financially support local moves by
military members.
So, if one of the two exceptions
occurs and servicemembers are forced
to move from their home, the govern-
ment may pay for the move, he said.
The regulation and Obama's
new legislation go "hand in glove,"
Shumake said.
Military members faced with such
uncertainty are in the best possible
position with the two protections, he
said.
For more information, servicemem-
bers should contact their local legal
office.

C O Column


Last week, USNAVSO/4th
Fleet held a change of command
ceremony for Rear Adm. Joseph
D. Kernan who was relieved
by Rear Adm. Victor Guillory.
Kernan's next assignment will
be the military advisor for the
Secretary of Defense. We wish
him the best in his next chal-
lenging assignment, and wel-
come Guillory and his wife to
the "best base in the Navy."
We had another signifi-
cant event on base as seven-
teen service members from the
Jacksonville area were officially
sworn in as United States citi-
zens during a naturalization
ceremony onboard USS De
Wert (FFG 45). The program
was extremely well done and
I want to thank the crew of De
Wert and our own MC1 Heather
Ewton for taking the lead on
this and orchestrating a mem-
orable occasion for everyone.
Congratulations to all of our
new citizens. Your hard work
and dedication to our country is
an inspiration to all of us.
The American Legion
Spirit of Service Award rec-
ognizes junior Sailors (E5 and


Capt. Aaron Bowman
below) for their volunteer ser-
vice. I know there are plenty
of Sailors out there that could
qualify for this prestigious
award. Nominations are due to
the Navy Office of Community
Outreach by June 29. If you
have nominations, please sub-
mit packages to Admin by June
18.
As you know, I am very sup-
portive of volunteerism, and
many of you have spent count-
less hours in the community
making a difference. I would
love to see a Naval Station


Sailor get well deserved recog-
nition with this award.
Recall and emergency contact
information is critical to have in
case of a disaster, emergency,
or mishap. We want to ensure
all of our folks are safe and
accounted for. Please take a look
at your recall information in the
Total Workforce Management
Service (TWMS) site and make
sure everything is up to date.
Lets not lose sight that we are
in hurricane season and any-
thing could happen. Also, make
sure you know where you will
go in case we have to evacuate
this year. Preparedness is key to
ensuring you are ready and not
trying to figure out what you
will do at the last minute. If you
find anything that is incorrect
or outdated in TWMS, please
update it with the correct infor-
mation such as your base loca-
tion, building number, home
address, E-mail addresses,
supervisor's name, work phone,
cell phone, home phone and
emergency points of contact.
If you need assistance access-
ing your self-service record or
encounter any problems, please


contact the help desk toll free
at 1-888-264-4255 (DSN:
942-6597 or Commercial: 1-
904-722-6597) and select the
TWMS option. To access your
TWMS Self Service Record go

The pool is starting to become
a very popular place. It's open
daily for lap swim from 6-8 a.m.
and 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Recreational
swim is Sunday-Friday from 1-6
p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m.-
6 p.m. We are also fortunate
to have Fletcher High School
Coach Bob Anderson coaching
a novice swim team Monday
and Wednesday 6-7 p.m. and
Fri 10-11 a.m. Bob is a fantas-
tic coach and he is really getting
some of our children, including
mine, motivated about swim-
ming and teaching them proper
strokes and racing techniques.
It's not too late to show up the
novice team is not for begin-
ners but it's a great way for
children who know their strokes
to improve with a professional
coach.
Outside Friday movies are
now being shown at the Sea


Otter Pavilion and it's a great
is a great way to spend time
with the family. We have really
been working hard to get up
to date movies and a lot of our
movies are being shown long
before they are available on
DVD. This Friday for example
we are showing, "Dragon Ball
Evolution" which doesn't come
out on DVD till July 28.
I know I mentioned this in my
last column, but our sea turtles
deserve another mention. We
had three new nests this past
weekend. One of the nests had
151 eggs! Please be aware of
the orange barricades on the
beach, they are there to protect
our sea turtles. I appreciate all
the people that came up this
weekend when we were mov-
ing the nest to tell about another
one they had seen on the beach.
We should start seeing some of
our hatchlings in late July. This
year like last year we will try
to get notice up on the marquee
for release later that night. It
always depends of course if the
baby turtles cooperate. Please
help us keep the nests safe, and
when you go to the beach, bring


a bag and clean up more than
you brought and please keep
pets on leashes at all times, fish
only North of the Chief's Club
and swim south of the Chief's
club, and if you see any signs
of turtles or a stranded animal,
contact security immediately.
Mark your calendar for June
27 when we celebrate our
Nations birthday with fireworks.
Last year we moved fireworks
from the Fourth of July so our
MWR folks could enjoy the
Fourth with their families and
so people that traveled for the
long weekend could enjoy the
Mayport show. It was an over-
whelming success so this year
we are doing the same thing.
If you show up at Mayport on
the Fourth of July for fireworks
you better bring some binocu-
lars since the closest ones will
be miles away. See you on the
27th of June!
Your concerns are my con-
cerns, so keep those suggestions
rolling in to the CO's sugges-
tion box located at the base
galley, or email them to aaron.

Chaplain's Corner


There was once a husband
who was somewhat confused
about the importance of lov-
ing his wife so as to provide
a stable home for his children.
His wife suffered from depres-
sion and was always upset and
unhappy. The concerned hus-
band took her to a psychiatrist.
After listening attentively to the
couple, he prescribed the proper
treatment with the following
demonstration. He went over to
the man's wife, gathered her up
in his arms, and gave her a big
kiss. The woman's reaction was
spontaneous as she looked at
the doctor with a glowing face
and a broad smile. The doc-
tor turned to the husband and
said: "You see! All she needs
is a little love." Expressionless,
the husband said, "Okay, Doc.


Chaplain Joe Molina
CDS40 Staff Chaplain
I can bring her in on Tuesdays
and Thursdays."
Yes, Fathers Day is approach-
ing. So, why am I writing about
this? The point is very simple.
Many of us may suffer from


a very, very short memory. I
believe that Fathers Day would
even be a grander celebration
if we kept in mind some com-
pelling realities regarding the
responsibilities of fatherhood
throughout the entire year.
Fathers Day presents us with
the opportunity to analyze
our effectiveness as fathers. I
believe that the measure of a
good Fathers Day is determined
not by how many gifts we
fathers receive from our kids
but by how much we have given
of ourselves throughout the
year. We need to understand
that one of the best gifts that
we can give our children is a
healthy marriage. When fathers
love their wives, their children
derive great benefits. Children
will feel safe and secure. They


will learn how to love and how
to live.
Do you need another motiva-
tor? How about this one: A
West German magazine released
the fascinating results of a study
conducted by a life insurance
company a few years ago. The
study found that husbands who
kiss their wives every morning
live an average of five years
longer, are involved in fewer car
accidents, are ill 50% less, and
earn 20 to 30% more money.
So husbands, love your wives.
It is good for you and for your
children.
For married dads, Fathers Day
is not so much a question of
how much do fathers love their
children. I think it's really more
of a question of fathers loving
their wives. When we love our


wife everyone in the family is
a winner...our wife, our chil-
dren and ourselves. It's wise,
it's healthy and it's Scriptural:
"Husbands, love your wives...."
(Ephesians 5:25).
So, "pucker-up" dad!
However, good Fathers Day
advice is not only limited to
those of us who are married. I
also realize that a number of
dads live apart from their chil-
dren. Perhaps they have remar-
ried and started new families.
Indeed, in these modern times
many single dads are even rais-
ing children on their own. This
situation doesn't have to rob
those dads of the happiness of
being complete in their role as
a father. Yes, it will challenge
them to be more creative but it
can be done successfully if they


make the TIME and capture
those special opportunities to
savor the presence and love that
their children long to express.
The initiative lies with them
and their ability to plan, accom-
panied by the desire to give of
themselves. Whether single
or married, fatherhood will
demand from us our creativity
and sacrifice from time to time.
It is worth every moment of our
efforts.
On behalf of the CDS40 Team
we sincerely hope that you have
a wonderful Fathers Day. The
coming year will present us
dads with many opportunities
to give of ourselves and leave
our children a most important
legacy ...our love and support.

I am going to reveal my
age here but did you know the
member of the folk-rock band
"America" were military brats?
It is true! They were the sons
of American service members
stationed in the U.K. They were
playing in two different bands
when they met...and, as we
know, the rest is history. By the
way, their mothers were British.
So, if your son or daughter
has been making you crazy with
that incessant drumming com-
ing from the garage or the vol-
ume of their singing; if you've
always thought they had talent
that could take them places you
can channel all that energy to
this great contest. If your kids
have a band or are interested in


forming one they could be the
next breakthrough band! This is
U-TURN's third Garage Band
Playoff competition, but the
first with a specific theme. Last
year's competition involved 16
bands from across the country
which ranged in style from'
country' to 'metal.'
Check out the website (www.
garagebandplayoff.com) for
more information or email
USAA at uturm@usaa.com. Let
me know if your kids compete,
I want to follow their progress!

Did you know the members
of the band "America" were
military brats? It is true. Their
fathers were U.S. military,
their mothers British stationed
in West Ruislip, London in the
'60s. They met playing in two
different bands.

USS Farragut Celebrates 3rd Birthday


By Ensign
Melanie Stolzenberg
USSFarragutPAO
USS Farragut (DDG 99) cel-
ebrated its third birthday, recog-
nizing the history of its name-
sakes, own history and future
on June 10.
Commissioned in Bath,
Maine in 2006, DDG 99 is the
fifth ship to bear the name of
Farragut. Adm. David Glasgow
Farragut, a Civil War hero, was
the first member of the U.S.
Navy to attain the rank of admi-
ral.
The first ship to be named
after him was TB-11, a
U.S. Navy Torpedo Boat.
Commissioned in 1899, TB-
11 patrolled the Panama Canal
during World War I. The sec-
ond USS Farragut, a 1,190-ton
Clemson class destroyer, was
commissioned in June 1920. A
month later, when the Navy for-
mally implemented hull num-
bers for its ships, it received the
designation DD-300.

NAVSO
Commander, U.S. Southern
Command (SOUTHCOM),
served as presiding officer
and presented Kernan with a
Distinguished Service Medal on
behalf of Secretary of the Navy,
the Honorable Ray Mabus.
"Rear Admiral Kernan was
a visionary whose charismatic
leadership, skillful diplomacy,
and unmatched commitment to
mission accomplishment led
USNAVSO to new levels of
success and relevance," stated
his award citation. "A gifted
ambassador of our Navy and
our Nation, he laid a foundation
for international cooperation by
masterfully cultivating relation-
ships with military and politi-
cal leaders throughout Latin
America."
Stavridis then accepted
Kernan's relief as Commander,
Rear Adm. Guillory. Guillory
most recently served as the
director for Surface Warfare
for the Office of Chief of Naval
Operations. His responsibilities
there included the war fighting


During 1924 and 1927, DD-
300 visited the Caribbean to
take part in fleet maneuvers. It

USS Doyle Continues To Sail Southern Seas


From USS Doyle Public. ;
The guided-missile frigate
USS Doyle (FFG 39) made
a port visit to Santo Tomas,
Guatemala May 28-31 to help
promote Theater Security
Cooperation (TSC).
The muggy heat and the trop-
ical landscape of Santo Tomas,
Guatemala, greeted U.S. Navy
Sailors, as Doyle went pier side
for a visit that included Subject
Matter Expert Exchanges
(SMEE), and a community rela-
tions (COMREL) Project.
Upon arrival, Doyle's
Commanding Officer,
Cmdr. John M. Zuzich, wel-
comed the Guatemalan Naval
Base Commanding Officer,
Guatemalan Navy Capt. Luis
Monterroso, the Base Executive
Officer, Guatemalan Navy Capt.
Navio Carlos Thomas, and
other officials onboard for an
official meet-and-greet and gift
exchange with the host country.
The main focus of Doyle's
visit in Guatemala was a
COMREL project which took
place at a local orphanage.
With 20 volunteers armed with
Project Handclasp material that
included medical and hygiene
supplies, Doyle Sailors spent
the day playing games, taking
tours and spending quality time


with 24 orphans.
The project started with a tour
of Doyle and lunch on the mess
decks. Following the tour of the
ship, the group was off to take a
tour to the beautiful Rio Dulce
Castle, a fort built in the 1600's
by Spanish colonists, located on
the outskirts of Santo Tomas.
After the hike, both Sailors and
children took some time to cool
off in a nearby bay.
"We took turns letting the
kids jump off our shoulders and
into the water," said Storekeeper
2nd Class Zachary Lloyd, a
Doyle Sailor who participated
in the COMREL project. "They
looked absolutely thrilled. I
know they enjoyed it as much as
we did. They looked so happy
to just to be near us and play-
ing with us. I will never forget
this,"
For the children, this was no
ordinary visit, as this was the
first time many of them had
seen an American Sailor and the
first time volunteers had come
solely for the purpose of spend-
ing time with them. After dis-
tributing the supplies, a game
of soccer followed, allowing
the Sailors to spend some more
time with the children.
"This COMREL was an
interesting experience; instead


of manual labor, our main pur-
pose here was to spend time
with the kids," said Doyle's
First Lieutenant, Ensign Tyler
Holcombe. "I think this makes
a huge impact on their lives and
they will always remember U.S.
Sailors taking time out to play
with them. I'm looking forward
to our future COMRELs."
In the days following the
COMREL, Doyle conduct-
ed a military SMEE with the
Guatemalan navy with various
Visit Board Search and Seizure
(VBSS) exercises. The events
included takedown procedures,
handcuffing and tactical team
movement.
Doyle is currently on a six-
month deployment to Latin
America and the Caribbean
participating in Southern
Seas 2009, in support of
U.S. Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM)'s Partnership
of the Americas strategy. This
year's deployment includes
Doyle, USS Kauffman (FFG
59), and USS Ford (FFG 54),
with Destroyer Squadron 40 as
the command element, focused
on conducting exercises and
military-to-military TSC events
in an effort to enhance relation-
ships with partner nations in the
region.

DoD Prepares Quad Defense Review


By Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class
William Selby
Special to American Forces Press Service
Defense Department officials are
preparing a far-ranging report on cur-
rent and future goals as part of a con-
gressional mandate.
"It's really the mother of all reports
to Congress," Amanda Dory, deputy
assistant secretary of defense for strat-
egy, said of the Quadrennial Defense
Review in a "DoDLive" bloggers
roundtable yesterday.
Secretaries of defense have seized


the reporting requirement "as an oppor-
tunity to articulate their vision for the
department and to use it as a decision-
making opportunity," Dory said.
Every four years since 1996, the
QDR has outlined the department's
institutional vision for all elements of
its operations.
Dory said law requires the Defense
Department to look 20 years into the
future when evaluating the security
environment to consider what capabili-
ties it might need to address the chal-
lenges it would face.


"A second substantive element of
the QDR is a national defense strat-
egy that will explore what our strategic
ends are, the ways we will endeavor to
achieve those ends, and then the means
we have available to pursue those,"
Dory said.
Another key element of the report
is how the department measures its
required activity in response to "presi-
dential tasking," Dory told the blog-
gers. "That's a key force-planning and
force-sizing determination."
The QDR has a major impact on


troops on the ground, Dory said,
because Defense Secretary Robert M.
Gates has placed special emphasis on
making the department more respon-
sive to meeting their current needs. "It
may seem that a congressional report
would be a bit esoteric and not rel-
evant to the troops on the ground," she
said. "But what makes it relevant to the
troops on the ground really is the secre-
tary's injunction to the department that
what we need to do is focus on suc-
ceeding in the conflicts that we're in."
The report also has implications in


terms of the way the department uses
its resources, Dory said.
"It has implications in terms of how
we relate to our interagency partners,
how our allies and friends see us in the
world, and how our potential adversar-
ies see us," she said.
The report is due to Congress in
February.

Media Activity's emerging media

Mediation Program


Builds On Success


By Mary Anne
Broderick Tubman
Navy Region Southeast Publhc. ;
For the second consecutive year, the
Navy Region Southeast Human Resources
Office (HRO) has been honored for its
success in the use of the Department of
the Navy (DON) Workplace Alternative
Dispute Resolution (ADR) Program,
which was introduced in 1999 as a vol-
untary and confidential process for Navy
civilian employees to informally resolve
workplace grievances.
The program is based on the four stan-
dards of the "Conflict Management and
Mediation Model" (CM3), which are: suf-
ficient staff with ADR training; promotion
of conflict management techniques; use of
best practices in facilitative mediation; and
tracking and reporting ADR events. The
ADR program uses proven conflict man-
agement techniques that bring managers
and employees to the table in the presence
of a neutral third party, a certified media-
tor, who focuses on the process of helping
them reach solutions that are agreeable to
everyone involved.
"When we really listen to what's hap-
pening in a particular situation, what we
usually learn is that the underlying prob-
lem is miscommunication," said LeKesia
Hawkins, ADR program coordinator for
Navy Region Southeast. "With ADR,
everyone gets the opportunity to sit down
and talk things through."
Mediation can be used to address any
workplace issue that affects employee
morale or a work group's ability to fulfill
its mission. While ADR is offered as an
option to settle every EEO complaint, it
has also been used successfully to resolve
labor relations and employee relations
matters, and disputes between employ-
ees as well. Approximately 65 percent of
all EEO cases enter the mediation pro-
cess, and in Fiscal Year 2009 alone, Navy
Region Southeast has been able to resolve
79 percent of them through ADR.
For this unprecedented achievement,
Navy Region Southeast received the high-
est honors from the DON at its Navy
Worldwide Human Resources Conference
held in Baltimore on April 17. The Human
Resources staff also received this award
in 2008 for their contributions to the ADR
program, which included promoting and
scheduling mediations, and conflict man-
agement training.
Why does Hawkins believe that the
ADR program has been so successful for
Navy Region Southeast?
"We actively promote the program
throughout the region to create aware-
ness for what ADR is and how it can help


resolve workplace problems that affect
both managers and employees," she said.
Another advantage ADR brings to the
dispute resolution process is timeliness.
Once a request for mediation is received,
a hearing must take place within 90 days.
The grievance is either brought to resolu-
tion through mediation or proceeds to a
formal level of administrative action.
"An EEO claim can take months or even
years to resolve," Hawkins said. "By using
the ADR program as the first step, we can
often avoid the time, expense, and toll on
employee morale."
A key factor in Navy Region Southeast's
ADR success rate is the skill of its cer-
tified mediators. To become a media-
tor, volunteers must complete a four-tier
training program that consists of instruc-
tion, participation in mock mediation pro-
ceedings, and co-mediation of three ADR
cases.
While the training is provided at no cost,
any related travel expenses are the respon-
sibility of the individual or their com-
mand. For many mediators, like Jackson
Blamo of Navy Region Southeast, their
service is a collateral duty.
"I volunteered to become a mediator
because I wanted to help resolve disputes
before they escalated, improve communi-
cation and morale, and help save the Navy
money," said Blamo, an EEO counselor
and Asian American and Pacific Islanders
(AAPIs) special emphasis program man-
ager.
A certified mediator for 1 1/2 years,
Blamo has been involved in six mediation
cases, five of which were resolved through
the ADR Program.
"What is most rewarding about being a
mediator," Blamo said, "is seeing people
involved in a dispute communicating, and
then using that communication to help
them into a resolution. To see them talk-
ing, shaking hands, and smiling at the end
of the mediation is very gratifying."
The ADR program is beneficial to man-
agers and employees alike through its
capacity to resolve workplace issues at the
lowest level, its ability to improve morale
by allowing open dialogue between parties
in a non-threatening environment, and its
potential to avoid litigation costs and asso-
ciated lost work time.
"In the end, the true success of ADR is
that it keeps people at work, productive,
and happy," Hawkins said.

visit www.adr.navy.mil. The ADR web-
site features a comprehensive description
of the program, an online overview, and
information about how to request a certi-
fied mediator.

Service Members Pledge



Commitment To Brides


By Lt. Lesley Lykins
Navy Office of information, East
To honor service members for
their commitment to the country,
the United Services Organization of
Metropolitan New York and WE TV
coordinated
"Operation 'I Do'" an early
morning wedding ceremony for mil-
itary couples in Times Square June
11.
The ceremony included three
Navy couples, one Air Force and one
Marine Corps couple.
"It was an amazing, unforgetta-
ble experience," said Senior Chief
Explosive Ordnance Disposal
Technician Aaron Ryan, from
Explosive Ordnance Disposal
Training and Evaluation Unit 1 in
San Diego.


"It was like being up on stage with
family," newlywed Barbara Ryan
told reporters when asked about
reciting vows along with the other
couples. "We've all become so close
just in the time we've had here in
New York, and we all understand
each other and the commitment to
service that our husbands share."
In addition to the ceremony offici-
ated by Army Maj. Doyle Coffman,
garrison chaplain for Fort Hamilton,
Brooklyn, N.Y, the couples enjoyed
their first dance as former American
Idol contestant Melinda Doolittle
serenaded the couples with her new
single, "Best of Everything."
"I have the utmost admiration
for our service men and women.
Thursday was a magical day for
these special couples and the city


of New York," said Doolittle. "I am
thrilled to have participated in WE
TV's Operation 'I Do', and I will
never forget these families or this
day!"
The couples enjoyed a cake-cut-
ting ceremony and departed under
a traditional arch of swords held by
service members from the Navy,
Marine Corps and Air Force.
The celebration was followed by
numerous media interviews and pho-
tographs.
When asked what her new hus-
band, Lt. Cmdr. Jeff Smith assigned
to the Pentagon had the most of,
Traci Smith simply answered
"honor."


Former Pirate Hostage Receives

The Navy League of the United

the Admiral Arleigh Burke Leadership
Award June 13 at the Westin Arlington

"The Arleigh Burke Leadership
Award is our most prestigious award,"
said J. Michael McGrath, national
president of the Navy League. "[We
are proud] to recognize such a hero [as
Captain Phillips].
Phillips was the master of MV
Maersk Alabama when it was hijacked
in April by Somali pirates. To ensure
that his crew was released, he offered
himself to the pirates as a hostage.
"It's truly incredible to be chosen
for this, I don't see myself as a hero...
to be honored by this group is truly an
honor," Phillips said.
U.S. naval forces, including SEALS,
rescued Phillips April 12.
Following the rescue, Phillips was
initially taken aboard the Norfolk, Va.,
based guided-missile destroyer USS
Bainbridge (DDG 96).
"The USS Bainbridge, a multimis-
sion DDG, was forward deployed
and able to respond quickly because
it's trained and capable of perform-
ing a number of missions simultane-
ously," said guest speaker and former
Bainbridge Sailor Vice Adm. Michael
Vitale, commander, Navy Installations

Sailors Work To Improve


Panamanian Community


From USS Simpson Public. -,
Sailors from the guided-mis-
sile frigate USS Simpson (FFG
56) dedicated the first day of
a recent three-day port visit to
Panama to restore a dilapidated
school building.
Within two hours of arriving
pier side Panama City, twen-
ty Sailors headed into the city
to participate in a Community
Relations (COMREL) Project.
The building had been out of
use for several years and had
fallen into disrepair. Recently
the Non-Profit Organization
Conservatorio took over respon-
sibility and began overhaul and
repairs in order to make it a
habitable environment for chil-
dren.
Director for the organization,
K. C. Hardin, said the mission
for the group is to give local
children an after-school activity
location where they will be able
to constructively use their time,
which is a welcome alternative
to running the streets.


"With the help of the Simpson
Sailors we accomplished in
a day what would have taken
us over a month to do by our-
selves," said Hardin. "Projects
like this would be nearly impos-
sible to accomplish without the
help of the U.S. Navy."
Children within the program
will receive tutoring for their
schoolwork, learn about the
importance of exercise and fit-
ness, and participate in pottery
and art classes. The children
also have a project in the works
where they will care for and
maintain a vegetable garden.
Once the vegetables are harvest-
ed, the children will sell them
locally, leading to an increased
understanding of financial val-
ues.
Simpson Sailors arrived
ready to work, but they quick-
ly learned that they were in for
more work than they anticipat-
ed.
Hundred-pound bags of con-
crete mix had to be carried up


three flights of stairs to the level
it was to be laid. One group of
Simpson Sailors helped mix and
lay over three tons of concrete
within the school to provide
new floors, while another group
was at it helping to tear down
the old crumbling ceilings and
light fixtures so that new ones
could be installed.
Around the time local schools
let out, an influx of children
started arriving to the facility.
The children enjoyed meeting
and conversing with Simpson
Sailors.
Electricians Mate 1st Class
(SW) Diego Lafuente had a
great time interacting with the
kids.
"This was really tiring work,
but when you see these kids and
what you are trying to accom-
plish, it just makes it all worth
your while," said Lafuente. "It
is really gratifying".
The COMREL project took
place on Simpson's first day in
Panama City, and is part of an

States' commitment to the local ' *\

currently deployed to Latin
America under the operational
control of U.S. Naval Forces

ic," said Cmdr. Stanley Keeve,
Roosevelt's commanding offi-
cer. "We really got the opportu-
nity to show off the ship. We're
a great ship, and we had a num-
ber of historic personnel like
Mrs. [Nancy] Ireland on board.
She was the ship's initial spon-
sor, and it's always an honor
to have her on board. She has
remained in good contact with
the ship over the years, which
maintains a good relationship
between the Roosevelt family
and us."


Ireland was excited to have a
chance to return to the ship.
"It feels great to be back,"
said Ireland, "I haven't been
here since we went out on sea
trials. I don't know if other
ships' sponsors have this rela-
tionship, but it's been wonder-
ful, and I hope every future
commander involves me. It
feels fantastic to be back; it's a
wonderful ship."
Roosevelt's visit to the city
was exciting for both the resi-
dents of New York and the
crew.
"Roosevelt is delighted to
be here at fleet week." added


Keeve, "It's been a wonder-
ful event. Many of our Sailors
have never had the opportuni-
ty to visit such a big city with
us being based out of Florida.
They've been to Yankees
games; they've been to plays;
they've marched in parades, and
they've just had a phenomenal
time."
Approximately 3,000 Sailors,
Marines and Coast Guardsmen
are participating in the 22nd
commemoration of Fleet Week
New York City 2009 through
May 27.

USS Vicksburg Celebrates Sailor Advancements


By Ensign Marc Schron
USS Vicksburg Public. ; Officer
Exam results are an exciting and
greatly anticipated time of year
for Sailors across the Fleet, and
the most recent cycle of Petty
Officer exams did not disap-
point for Vicksburg.
After review of their records
and a grueling four-hour test,
an astounding 39 Sailors quali-
fied to put on the next-highest
rank. In addition, Personnel
Specialist Chief (SW/AW)
Antonio Searcy was frocked to
the rank of Senior Chief, and
eight of Vicksburg's officers
were advanced to the next high-
est rank.
Ships accomplish many tasking
items, from the Commanding
Officer level all the way up to
Strike Group, Fleet and "Big


Navy" priorities.
In addition to the frockings
and advancements, Vicksburg
Sailors were awarded sev-
eral commendations for their
superior performance over the
last several months. Among
the decorations awarded
were a Navy Commendation
Medal, two Fleet Letters of
Commendation, three Navy
Achievement Medals, and six
Vicksburg Sailors of the Month.
Recognizing the efforts of the
entire crew with official award
documentation is not only ben-
eficial for advancement and
other career opportunities, but
the morale boost in the crew
when they see one of their own
recognized for a job well done
is priceless.


Award-ceremony recipients pose on the flight deck of USS Vicksburg.

ATG Frocks Six


To Senior Chief


By Lt Cynthia Wood
ATG Mayport
Afloat Training Group (ATG)
Mayport recently marked a sig-
nificant milestone in the lives of
six chief petty officers by frock-
ing them to senior chief petty
officer.
Competition this year was
extremely difficult, as the allow-
able number of promotions
decreased from previous years.
ATG is extremely proud of its
newest senior chiefs: Senior
Chief Electronics Technician
JohnLonsdale, Senior Chief Fire
Controlman Daniel Pritchard,
Senior Chief Operations


Specialist Timothy Mollock,
Senior Chief Electrician's
Mate Patrick Lawler, Senior
Chief Boatswain's Mate Todd
Gisewhite, and Senior Chief
Operations Specialist Steven
Hacker.
"Their advancement is tes-
timony of sustained superior
performance, leadership, and
the trust and confidence the
Navy has placed in them," com-
mented Capt. Herb Hadley,
ATG Mayport's Commanding
Officer. The skills and talent in
the Chief's Mess continues to
grow as ATG strives to provide
the best support to the fleet.

Gettysburg Help Keep


Waterways Safe For All


By Lt. John Fage
Combined Task Force 151 Pubhc Af-
fairs
Combined Task Force (CTF)
151 and its flagship, the guided-
missile cruiser USS Gettysburg
(CG-64), helped keep the sea
lines of communication open
and waterways clear of criminal
activity when they boarded a
suspect skiff June 2.
At approximately 11 a.m.,
members of the Gettysburg's
visit, board, search and sei-
zure (VBSS) team and the U.S.
Coast Guard's Maritime Safety
and Security Team (MSST)
91112 inspected a small dhow
and its accompanying skiff after


it was spotted by a helicopter
assigned to Helicopter Anti-sub-
marine Squadron Light (HSL)
46, Detachment 9 while patrol-
ling the Gulf of Aden.
Gettysburg's boarding team
found no suspicious materials or
pirate paraphernalia aboard the
dhow but used the opportunity
to speak with the dhow's pas-
sengers, letting them know that
coalition warships are patrolling
the area to keep them safe and
out of harm's way.
"Our job as Sailors, no mat-
ter what country we are from or
what mission we are assigned
to, is to protect all people at
sea," said Turkish Rear Adm.


Caner Bener, commander, CTF
151. "It is our duty and our
privilege to keep the world's
waterways safe for all those
who travel on the sea."
CTF 151 is a Turkish-led
multinational task force estab-
lished to conduct counterpiracy
operations under a mission-
based mandate throughout the
Combined Maritime Forces
Area of Responsibility to active-
ly deter, disrupt and suppress
piracy in order to protect global
maritime security and secure
freedom of navigation for the
benefit of all nations.

USS Vicksburg Renders Honors At Sea For Shipmates

The firing detail elevates and aims their rifles, preparing to render honors with the three-round volley of 21 E ho to s courtesy of USS Vicksburi
shots. Ensign Colin Morrissey escorts the service member's remainsfrom the honor platoon to the Assistant Burial
Officer to be spread in Vicksburg's wake.


By Lt.j.g. Scott Shubert
USS Vicksburg Chaplain
Burial at sea is an ancient
practice of cultures that have
strong naval traditions. It has
been practiced for as long as
people have been going to sea,
from the Egyptians and Vikings
to the British Royal Navy. The
United States Navy continues
to honor active duty, retired and
honorably discharged veter-
ans and their families with this
custom. Twenty-one departed


souls were memorialized with
this venerable tradition by
USS Vicksburg (CG 69) while
on deployment serving as Air
Defense Commander for the
USS Dwight D. Eisenhower
(CVN 69) Carrier Strike Group.
Viewing a naval burial at
sea is a majestic event with all
of the dignity deserved by the
brave men and women who so
faithfully served their country.
The ceremony itself is both a
military and religious event


with the participants donned
in dress white uniforms. The
announcement is made "all
hands bury the dead," colors
placed at half-mast and ship's
company at attention as the
official party consisting of the
Executive Officer, Command
Master Chief, and Chaplain
marches gallantly onto the aft
deck of the ship lined with the
burial officer, honor platoon and
rifle detail, 24 participants in
all. The Chaplain begins speak-

ing and solemnizes the event
through the reading of scripture
and prayers.
With the ship's company and
firing squad rendering honors,
the urn bearer delivers the urn
to the assistant burial officer
with a stately hand salute. He
in turn, marches gracefully to
the burial officer and turns over
the departed with another noble
salute. As the burial officer
kneels and releases the remains
into the sea, the Chaplain reads

Sweet Land of Liberty


The Glamour of


Universal Hollywood


By Erica I. Pefia-Vest and
Ryan Vest
Travel Columnist
We recently wrote an arti-
cle about Universal Studios
Orlando, but with so many
people traveling to the West
coast this summer, we thought
it would be appropriate to tell
you all about Universal Studios
Hollywood. Universal Studios
is known for more than just
their filmmaking. Mention the
name to anyone under 18 and
their thoughts immediately turn
to the popular theme parks in
both Hollywood, California
and Orlando, Florida. My fam-
ily recently had the opportu-
nity to visit Universal Studios
Hollywood during our vaca-
tion to Los Angeles. (Discount
tickets are available at the
Information Tickets and Travel
Center (ITT) on base.)
Universal Studios Hollywood
has something for everyone in
your family, but is especially
geared toward film buffs.
Reminders of the golden age
of the silver screen lie around
every corner, making the park
rich with history. Kids will
love riding Shrek 4D, letting
them experience one of their
favorite shows in a much more
interactive way. For the stouter
of heart, the Jurassic Park and
Revenge of the Mummy rides
are guaranteed to thrill. Our
favorite was Revenge of the
Mummy, which we rode several
times. Another park favorite is
"The Simpsons" ride, which is
a unique experience that allows
you to join the Simpson family
on a crazy adventure. A warn-
ing to the weak of stomach,
though, you might not want to
eat immediately before or after
riding this one! Don't leave the
park without experiencing the
Studio Tour. For those of you
that are movie-buffs, you will
love it! It involves a tram ride
through a Hollywood backlot


filled with scenes from some of
your favorite movies and show.
It is definitely something you
don't want to miss.
One nice amenity that
Universal Studios offers is a
"Front of the Line" Pass. For
about $60 more, you can buy a
pass that allows you to forego
all lines like a true Hollywood
VIP, giving you plenty of time
to try your favorite rides over
and over. This feature is a must
for those who can afford it. You
literally walk right on to every
ride as if they were holding it
just for you. It is the ultimate
celebrity-like experience.
While at Universal Studios
Hollywood take the time to
visit CityWalk a shopping,
dining, and movie-watch-
ing hot spot. Known locally
for its night-life, CityWalk is a
cross between a hip mall and
continuous party. Most of the
stores have a Hollywood theme
and you will find yourself buy-
ing knick knacks from your
favorite Universal films and
TV shows, even if you think
you can resist (ask my husband
about his Scooby Doo mug!).
CityWalk offers a variety of
dining options. I highly rec-
ommend the Hard Rock Caf6.
Known by name as a music his-
tory Mecca, you could spend
an hour just looking around at
the collectables and historical
artifacts. As a self-proclaimed
Hard Rock coinsurer (I travel a
lot and the Hard Rock sells my
favorite cheeseburger so I visit
one whenever I can), I think this
particular location is one of the
coolest I've seen. My favor-
ite is the Cadillac over the bar.
You can't miss it. It's the first
thing you see when you enter.
The evenings are filled with
non-stop fun. They regularly
have concerts and parties that
are legendary in the area. The
service is friendly, the food is
great and the ambiance is very


California-like with floor to
ceiling windows that let in the
wonderful California sun.
While visiting Universal
Studios, we stayed at the
Sheraton Universal Hotel.
Known as the "Hotel of the
Stars", you will experience
service and luxury in true
Hollywood fashion. They are
located minutes away from
Melrose, Hollywood and
Beverly Hills. They conve-
niently have a tram that deliv-
ers you from the front of the
hotel to Universal Studios and
CityWalk. This comes in handy
for those with kids or if you
want to save money on parking.
The Sheraton Universal Hotel
offers the military a special rate
through the ITT office. You
can't miss out on the opportu-
nity to stay at this iconic four
star hotel at a special price that
can't be beat (contact ITT for
more information).
Universal Studios Hollywood
might be smaller than its Florida
counterpart but there is defi-
nitely something special about
experiencing the theme park in
its natural habitat surrounded
by the glamour and mystique of
Hollywood. For more informa-
tion, log on to www.guideto-
militarytravel.com.

Area Sales
COME ON PEOPLE
This is ridiculous! Week
after week I run ads for
different departments in
my organization & get
limited response. There
are no gimmicks, no
surprises & and no hid-
den factors. We have
everything anybody else
can offer, in other
words, not iust a great
income, but all the good-
ies too! Commissions &
Incentives, vacations,
trips, rewards, health,
dental, life & vision
insurance and a 401(k).
Starting income, up to
$45K-$75K per year. You
can even qualify for a
$2,500.00 signing bonus.
Sounds good so far,
doesn't it? That's why I
can't understand why in
the world you wouldn't
investigate this opportu-
nity. This week I'm hir-
ing for sales in our
Jacksonville office: No
Experience necessary,
we will train you.
