Help Clean Up

Mayport Shore
Naval Station Mayport is
cleaning u p its shoreline
with your help. Mayport's
Environmental Department
is looking for volunteers to
participate in the 2009 Mid-
Summer Shoreline Clean-up
on July 16.
The goals of the 2009 Mid-
Summer Shoreline Clean-up
are to have a focused event
in which military and civilian
volunteers demonstrate their
commitment as good stew-
ards of our environment and
to remove a significant quan-
tity of debris that has washed
up ashore here at NAVSTA
Mayport. Floatable trash con-
tinues to be a major pollutant
in our rivers and oceans and
poses a significant hazard to
the health of aquatic wildlife.
Volunteers may partici-
pate at one of three locations
on Station: Reynolds Park
(on river front across from
the Recycling Center); west
end of Jetties (north end of
Bon Homme Richard Street,
adjacent to Bldg. 1538); or
the beach area (Beachside
Community Center dune
crosswalk). This is a one-
hour event that will run from
9-10 a.m.
Gloves and plastic trash
bags will be provided on site.
For additional informa-
tion please contact Scott
Dombrosky, NS Mayport
Water Program Manager at
904-270-6730 ext. 211. Pre-
registration is not required.


By MCCS(SW/AW) Bill Houlihan
Master ( 'Petty Officer ofthe NavyPublic. ;
The Navy Working Uniform (NWU) is now autho-
rized for wear off-base, during routine stops and at eat-
ing establishments during the prescribed workday.
In NAVADMIN 188/09, Chief of Naval Operations
(CNO), Adm. Gary Roughead, expanded the occasion
for wear policy, which has been in place for six months.
Roughead consistently stated that the possibility for
changing the policy hinged upon a timetable driven by
the Navy's chiefs' mess.
Once the leadership mess provided feedback to
Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) (SS/
SW) Rick West, indicating that Sailors across the Navy
understood the correct manner to wear the uniform,
it was understood that he would recommend to CNO
and Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP), Vice Adm. Mark
Ferguson, when the time was right to allow the uniform
off base.
According to West, that time is now.
"Communication from the Force and Fleet Master


From Navy Munitions Command
CONUSEast Division Detachment
Mayport
Navy Munitions Command
CONUS East Division (CED)
Detachment Mayport held a rib-
bon cutting ceremony on July 2
to mark the completion of reno-
vations to Building 190.
Commanding Officer Navy
Munitions Command CED,
Capt. Bette Bolivar, was joined
by Naval Station Mayport
Commanding Officer Capt.
Aaron Bowman, NAVFAC
Officer in Charge Capt. William
Vaughan and Navy Munitions
Command CED Detachment
Mayport Officer in Charge Lt.
John Nelson in marking the
occasion. It took more than a
year of planning, contracting,
and construction to complete


Chiefs has been unanimously positive. Our Sailors
are ready to introduce this uniform to the American
public," said West. "That's what CNO was waiting for
and this decision is a direct result of chief petty officer
(CPO) feedback. It's been sincerely gratifying to be
able to watch this process work as well as it has."
The policy differs from the language in NAVADMIN
343/08 in that, up to now, routine stops were not
allowed. That meant Sailors were prohibited from visits
to child care centers, gas stations, brief stops at conve-
nience stores or banks. Now those stops are authorized.
"Our Sailors are proud of this uniform," said
MCPON. "This has been the number one feedback item
from the fleet since I took office, (Dec. 12, 2008) and
they have not been shy about their wishes to wear this
uniform in town. Our Sailors have been trained to wear
it and will wear it proudly."
West underscored the importance of waiting for the
right time to open up the occasion for wear policy. He
said that while many wondered why the original wear
policy was put in place, it was important to ensure


the major interior renovation to
Building 190.
The partnership, communica-
tion, and cooperation between
the commands were critical to
the successful completion of the
project.
Renovations included two
new HVAC units and air han-
dling units, four new office
spaces, new restrooms and
training facilities, as well as
upgrades to the floor, walls, and
ceilings of the building.
Building 190 serves as the
administration offices for Navy
Munitions Command CONUS
East Division Detachment
Mayport and Explosive
Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit
Six, Detachment Mayport. Navy
Munitions Command CED and
their eight detachments provide


every Sailor knew how to wear it before allowing it
outside the lifelines of ships and bases. He also said he
kept a close eye on various regions to see how aggres-
sive leadership was in training the fleet to wear the
NWU.
"I watched Navy Region Mid-Atlantic and I saw
how the chiefs in that region were engaged in getting
this right from day one. The training was consistent
and it was effective. They deserve a lot of credit for
the expanded policy, because they did it the right way
in the largest fleet concentration area. Leaderships
engagement coupled with Sailor feedback was what
drove this recommendation (to expand the policy) to
CNP and CNO."
The revision includes aligning the NWU and
Camouflage Utility Uniforms (CUUs) occasion for
wear policies and offers more flexibility than the rules
governing the wear of other working uniforms.
The transition to the NWU will continue as stipu-

SW Groves Honors Its Namesake


Crewmembers of USS Stephen W. Groves pose with Brian Groves, nephew of the ship's namesake
Ensign Stephen W. Groves, on July 4th. Brian presented the ship wirlh the flag flying in the back-
ground which was given to thefamily during Ensign Groves memorial in 1942.


From USS Stephen W. Groves
The crew of USS Stephen
W Groves (FFG 29) celebrat-
ed the independence of USA
by honoring its namesake.
During the ship's morning
colors on the Fourth of July,
the crew saluted a 48-star flag
on loan to the ship from the
family of the ship's namesake,
Ensign Stephen W. Groves.
The flag was first given to
the Ensign's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Lemuel Groves in 1942
at a memorial for their late
son. Brian Groves, nephew of
Ensign Groves, was on board


the ship during colors as the
memorial flag flew on the ship
for the first time.
Ensign Groves, was a Naval
Aviator who died in the Battle
of Midway on June 4, 1942.
Battling a vastly superior
Japanese force, Ensign Groves
took off from his carrier nine
times in defense of USS
Yorktown (CV-5). A native
of East Millinocket, Maine,
Groves was the first service-
man from his hometown to be
lost in World War II.
"Stephen was my Uncle, and
I was born 22 years after his


death," said Brian Groves dur-
ing the event. "Our family has
kept a close association with
USS Stephen W Groves since
her Commissioning in 1982.
We are very proud of the hard
work and dedication of those
who serve aboard her."
Brian said that as he watched
the flag being raised that he
thought about the poem, "The
Legion Eternal," written by
his late grandfather in honor of
Ensign Groves and his fallen
comrades:
A Message floats upon the
breeze

the wave: friends honor those loved
Uphold the Light we leave ones who go in harm's way
to Thee; in defense of their Nation,
Guard now the Flag we died and may God bless them all,"
to save. Brian added.

C O Column


What a wonderful Freedom
Fest Show put on by the MWR
Director Lonnie Kenney and his
team. John Aimone is the heavy
lifter on this event and it keeps
on getting better and better each
year. I can't imagine this Naval
Station without our MWR team.
Please thank them when you
run into one of them working
hard to make this a great base
and fun place to be.
Fireworks, games, live music,
all the elements of a good time
were in place and I want to thank
everyone involved MWR,
Fire and Rescue, Security,
etc. It was a huge success.
Also happening last week, Adm.
Jonathan Greenert, Commander,
Fleet Forces Command vis-
ited the base and was truly
impressed by the pride and pro-
fessionalism you all bring to the
table each day. His tour includ-
ed talking to IA personnel and
visiting USS Farragut.
The IA program is simply part


Capt. Aaron Bowman
of service in the Navy now and
he wants to make sure that your
concerns are heard and noted.
Thank you all for expressing
those concerns and success sto-
ries to him. Those comments
from the deck plates are vital to
making this program the best it
can be.
A new survey is on the
street and I highly encour-


age all active duty Sailors to
participate in a sexual assault
study to assess the effectiveness
of the Navy's Sexual Assault
Victim Intervention (SAVI)
program. The Office of the
Naval Inspector General (IG) is
conducting the survey, which is
available at ww.ig.navy.mil/sas-
tudy.htm. The survey, designed
for active-duty personnel, is
confidential, anonymous, and
will be available for participa-
tion through Sept. 30.
Naval IG teams are also visit-
ing installations around the fleet
through the end of September.
As part of the visits, they are
facilitating focus group discus-
sions to gain more insight from
a fleet perspective about the
occurrences and command sup-
port during incidences of sexual
assault. Each focus group will
be composed of a cross-sec-
tion of personnel and consist
of approximately 20 people
from various rank categories.


The Navy's SAVI Program is
managed by Commander, Navy
Installations Command's Fleet
and Family Support Program.
Our Fleet and Family Support
Program manages a wide vari-
ety of programs, including
SAVI.
These programs enhance
Sailor readiness, family pre-
paredness and directly contrib-
utes to mission readiness. Sui-
cide for example, is the third
leading cause of death in the
Navy and I cannot stress enough
the importance as leaders, to tell
your folks that there are ave-
nues of help out there that can
prevent a tragic decision such
as suicide. Suicide is a state of
mind that is most often tempo-
rary and reversible with timely
assistance.
Unfortunately we lost a
Marine from Blount Island
Command to suicide less than
two weeks ago. He lived in
Mayport Navy housing and


left family, a small child, wife,
friends, and neighbors all won-
dering what were the signs
and what could have been
done. There is 24/7 assistance
always available at our quar-
terdeck at 270-5401. Military
OneSource also offers help 24-7
at 1-800-342-9647.
The Navy Working Uniform
(NWU) is now authorized for
wear off-base, during routine
stops and at eating establish-
ments during the prescribed
workday. I have established
a date of Oct. 1 for NAVSTA
personnel to transition so we
are not wearing so many dif-
ferent uniforms. It's easy right
now to get the uniform over by
Charlie pier in the temporary
uniform shop, but we will close
that operation soon and move
the NWU back to the fleet
store. Starting on Oct. 1, we
will also no longer allow cover-
alls outside of the working areas
(NEX, etc.).


Please keep in mind that when
your wear the uniform you are
representing the Naval Station
and the Navy. Take pride in
wearing it, and maintain a sharp
military appearance.
Finally I want to put a plug
on our current weather condi-
tions. Please make sure while
your out and about or working
out, you stay hydrated. Summer
brings the heat and all that can
come with it such as dehydra-
tion or heat stroke.
All of you are vital to the suc-
cess of this team and your health
and well being is my top priori-
ty. 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 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.
bowman@navy.mil.


Chaplain's Corner


This morning you may have
read an uncensored newspaper
because we live in a country
that believes and practices free-
dom of the press. This past
Sunday you may have attend-
ed the church of your choice
because this country believes
and practices the free choice of
religion. I am now sitting in
my stateroom, while embarked
on the USS Kauffman (FFG59),
writing down my thoughts
because we believe in freedom
of expression. These are just
a few of the freedoms that we
enjoy in America.
Indeed, America is blessed in
many ways! Tremendous natu-
ral resources, great scenic beau-

ty, a basically robust economy
and educational opportunities
available to all who desire it,


are part of a seemingly endless
list of the fruits which freedom
and much sacrifice has brought.
The results of our unique 233-
years-old democratic experi-
ment seem almost supernatural.
No other people in the history
of mankind have achieved so
much in so little time. America
is unique among all nations in
all of recorded history! That is
a powerful reality.
In preparation to celebrate the
4th of July a number of com-
pelling realities appear clear to
me. As I see it, there are two
immediate temptations we face
as a people. The first, we can
take it all for granted, in which
case freedom appears to be


cheap. Freedom is not cheap!
Freedom always has and it
always will demand a price.
Our nation's various conflicts
speak forcefully of the price that
freedom has demanded over the
years. Our present day war on
terrorism testifies to this truth
and reminds us of the fragile
nature of our freedoms.
The second temptation is
that of praising and worship-
ing America without recogniz-
ing the ultimate source of our
unique freedoms. Ultimately, I
believe that the One for whom
the word "free" has a special
meaning has inspired our free-
dom. May I offer the following
acronym to remind us of where


our ultimate freedom rests?
F-aith (in God)
Faith in God brings freedom
from the bondage of the excess-
es of life. When we place our
faith in God we are set free.
God is the ultimate source of all
freedom!
R-eliance (on God)
Reliance on God brings free-
dom from the chains of insecu-
rity. We can trust The Almighty
to supply our strength for God
is omnipotent.
E-nlightenment (from God)
Those who desire it can
receive God's light. This light
has been revealed to us and is
available for those who truly
seek it with all their hearts.


God is light!
E-ternal Life (with God)
Many people live in fear.
They dwell on the gloomy side
of life failing to recognize that
God holds the future. For them,
closing their eyes at the moment
of death represents a frightening
experience because they have
no vision of eternity. God will
give us freedom from fear of
the future, old age and ultimate-
ly, death.
Will you celebrate all of this
with me on 4 July? It's worth a
celebration!
GOD BLESS AMERICA
AND GOD BLESS YOU!


Sweet Land of Liberty: Guide to Military Travel


By Erica I. Pefia-Vest and
Ryan Vest
Military Travel Columnists
I'll be honest. When I first
saw Folsom, California on a
map, I didn't think much of it.
As far as I knew, Folsom was a
prison, right? My mind imme-
diately conjured up images of
Johnny Cash singing "I walk
the line". I was traveling home
from Sacramento one day and
thought, "Wouldn't it be fun to
drive through Folsom and take a
picture on front of the prison for
my scrapbook?" Wasn't I in for
a surprise? There is a famous
prison in Folsom and Johnny
Cash did perform there in 1968,
but little did I know I was about
to be introduced to one of my


favorite cities in California.
Folsom, California has
boomed in recent years to
become one of the top shop-
ping, dining and outdoor adven-
ture destinations in Northern
California, offering something
for everyone in your fam-
ily. For the outdoor adventurer
in your family, Folsom offers
great water sports and hiking.
Between Folsom Lake, Lake
Natoma and the American
River, anyone who enjoys being
on the water will be able to find
their pleasure. Whether you
like waterskiing, wakeboard-
ing, swimming or just hiking
along the waterfront, Folsom is
a sportsman's paradise.
For the shopper in your fam-


ily, Folsom is also home to
the Folsom Premium Outlets
which is a bargain shopper's
oasis. With nearly 100 designer
clothing outlet stores, it is the
perfect place to spend a lazy
afternoon walking through the
outdoor mall in the comfortable
California sunshine.
Best of all, Folsom is the
perfect destination for fami-
lies. I recently took my two
year old to Disneyland and he
didn't enjoy it half as much as
he loved Folsom. Sometimes
the major tourist destinations
can be overwhelming and tiring
for little ones, but Folsom is full
of outdoor adventure, parks and
attractions perfect for little chil-
dren. As for accommodations,


we stayed at the Residence Inn
by Marriott which offers a mili-
tary discount and rooms per-
fect for families with one or two
bedrooms. Centrally located
and offering a full breakfast
buffet for free every morning,
it's the perfect place to stay with
the kids.
Despite the small size, the
Folsom Zoo & Sanctuary is one
of the best zoo experiences I've
ever had. While only a frac-
tion of the size of larger zoos,
the Folsom Zoo & Sanctuary
offers a much more intimate
encounter with both exotic and
native California wildlife, and
can be comfortably experienced
in an afternoon. My son par-
ticularly loved the peacocks and


roosters that room the grounds
free. An afternoon at the zoo
would be incomplete without
a ride on the adjacent Folsom
Valley Railway. This train is a
huge hit among children (and
the adults in my family). The
Folsom Valley railroad is pulled
by a 12 inch narrow gauge 4-4-
0 steam locomotive (a minia-
ture locomotive for those that
don't speak 'train') that is just
the right size for kids to relate
to. If you travel with your chil-
dren, it's something that can't
be missed, and at a cost of $4
per person for the zoo and $2
per person for a train ride, it
won't break the bank.
Folsom is also home to a vast
variety of restaurants that cover


everything from east to west.
Fat's Asia Bistro is an unfor-
gettable culinary experience,
gathering a broad spectrum of
Eastern cuisine under one roof.
For those hankering western
food, Texas West BBQ is my
personal favorite. As a native
Texan, I can tell you that it is
not only authentically Texan,
but mouthwateringly scrump-
tious as well.
Folsom is a destination that
shouldn't be missed when you
are in Northern California. I
have found my home away from
home!


Homefront in Focus


By Beth Wilson
Military Spouse Support Contributor
If you read this column
regularly you may recall that
I announced that I was start-
ing a series on the communities
that compose our great Navy.
As soon as I submitted that col-
umn my inbox filled with ques-
tions and requests that required
a change in the next few col-
umns. We'll pick up the series
at a later time to focus on timely
topics for you and your family.
Disaster preparedness can
seem like a dull topic but it is a
'life and death' issue. The hur-
ricane season is in full swing in
the southeast, wild-fire season
on the west coast and tornado
season is affecting the Midwest.
It's time to be prepare for what
may come our way this summer
and fall.
In a disaster first responders,
police, fire fighters, and medi-
cal personnel, are finite in their
numbers and abilities. Federal
support may not arrive for three
days. We must take personal
responsibility seriously. Now is
the time to create that disaster
plan for you and your family.
The good news is it is not as
difficult as you think!
A disaster plan involves three
main areas: a communica-
tion plan, a disaster kit and an
evacuation plan. An effective
communication plan is easy.
Determine a family member or
friend outside your local area to
call to 'report in.' Often phone
lines (including cell phone)
and circuits are swamped in
the affected area. By contact-
ing grammy in Phoenix or Aunt
Delia in Pittsburgh all family
members can report in and know
who needs help. For Navy fami-
lies there is another number that
ooo


needs to be part of that commu-
nication plan: 1-877-414-5358.
This number, Navy Family
Assessment and Accountability
System (NFAAS), We"ll look
at NFAAS more below. In the
mean time put this number in
your wallet; program it into
your cell phone. Make sure all
family members know who to
call.
Step two is the disaster kit.
The Navy's Operation Prepare
website has great information
for you and your family. Logon
to https://www.cnic.navy.mil/
cnic_hq_site/OpPrepare/index.
htm for resources and informa-
tion to build an emergency kit
for your family with specific
information for your geographi-
cal region. The Red Cross site:
http://www.redcross.org/servic-
es/prepare also offers great info
for your disaster kit. Remember
to assemble these items in
a closet or area that everyone
knows. Make readiness a family
effort. Take the time to read and
utilize the information on these
two sites and remember the
motto: Three days, three ways.
Be prepared to survive for three
days and have three ways to
evacuate your home and neigh-
borhood.
Navy families should reg-
ister before disaster at
https://www.navyfamily.navy.
mil/. This is the Navy Family
Accountability and Assessment
System. This system enables
the Department of the Navy to
assist each family affected by a
national disaster/crisis or a per-
sonal situation, as well as IA's
and their families. Logon to the
site and complete the registra-
tion information. In an emer-
gency you may either call the
toll free number (1-877-414-


5358) or logon to update your
status and indicate your needs
if any. A case manager will be
assigned and proper resources
will be brought to bear to meet
your needs; from an ambulance
to a chaplain.
Assemble a "readiness bind-
er," folder or backpack with
important papers (copies) that
can be easily grabbed as you


dash out the door. Include a
copy of your most recent orders,
copies of driver's licenses, mili-
tary ID's, medical information
(medications and dosages), all
account numbers (bank, credit
card, insurance policies), copy
of birth certificates and mar-
riage license to name a few.
And tuck into this same binder
CASH. Put away $15 per pay


for one year and you will have
$360 for gas, hotel, food, and
other expenses in case you can-
not access your bank account
immediately.
We hear about disaster pre-
paredness often. The tendency
is to let it go without action.
Make disaster preparedness a
summer activity for you and
your family. Please send me any


ideas, tips or resources you used
for your disaster plan.

Gettysburg Relieved


As CTF 151 Flagship


From Commander, CTF 151 Public

The guided-missile cruiser
USS Anzio (CG 68) relieved
USS Gettysburg (CG 64) as the
flagship for Combined Task
Force (CTF) 151 June 28.
"Gettysburg did an incredible
job serving as our flagship from
May 3-June 28," said Turkish
Navy Rear Adm. Caner Bener,
commander, CTF 151.
"Whatever the situation,
whether engaged in the board-
ing or the safe and secure hold-
ing of suspected pirates for 28
days, Gettysburg undertook
them all without complaint. The
experience Gettysburg and her
crew brought to our mission
as flagship was a major key to
our success in counterpiracy
operations over the last couple
months."
Gettysburg participated in


counterpiracy operations as part
of CTF 151 since early April. In
less than three months, her crew
conducted several boardings,
captured 17 suspected pirates
and confiscated more than a
dozen assault rifles and a num-
ber of rocket-propelled grenade
(RPG) launchers, RPGs, ladders
and grappling hooks suspected
in attacks on merchant vessels.
Gettysburg's visit, board,
search and seizure (VBSS)
team along with members of
the U.S. Coast Guard's Legal
Detachment (LEDET) 409 out
of Miami, Fla., also captured
the first and only pirate mother-
ship taken by coalition forces.
"This has been the first occa-
sion of Turkish flag officer with
a multinational staff embarking
on a United States ship," said
Bener. "Doing so for the pur-
poses of coalition counterpiracy


operations has presented a range
of unique challenges and was a
ground-breaking experience for
us all. Gettysburg and her crew
made an immeasurable impact
on keeping the sea lanes of
communication safe. The ship's
contributions to counterpiracy
operations should serve as a
model to all ships to follow."
CTF 151 is a Turkish-led
multinational task force estab-
lished to conduct counterpiracy
operations under a mission-
based mandate throughout the
CMF area of responsibility to
actively deter, disrupt and sup-
press piracy in order to protect
global maritime commerce,
enhance maritime security and
secure freedom of navigation
for the benefit of all nations.

CFFC Meets With IAs,


Sailors On Waterfront

East Detachment Southeast
Naval Station Mayport wel-
comed the commander of U.S.
Fleet Forces Command (USFF)
as he toured the base June 30.
Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert
made a stop at the guided-mis-
sile destroyer USS Farragut
(DDG 99) where he took a
moment to present two Sailors
with their Enlisted Surface
Warfare Specialist (ESWS)
pins.
"It's a great honor," said
Interior Communications
Specialist (SW) 2nd Class
Chase Winebrenner. "Not many
people get a chance to have
a four-star admiral put their
ESWS pin on."
Boatswain's Mate (SW) 3rd
Class Andrew Whisler was the
second Sailor who was present-
ed a pin from Greenert.
"It's pretty cool, I don't think
anyone else on the ship can say
that they got pinned by some-
one as high ranking as Admiral
Greenert," said Whisler.


While aboard the ship,
Greenert took some time to talk
with the officers and chiefs of
Farragut about their training,
basic unit phase and particularly
how they are preparing for the-
ater security cooperation mis-
sions.
"I think it is paramount
to keep a certain alignment
between deckplate Sailors and
high level command," said
Cmdr. Philip Sobeck, Farragut's
commanding officer. "I feel this
is a great opportunity to show
what our Sailors are out doing
each and everyday."

Mayport Ships Prep During Exercise


By MC3 Jeff Troutman
USSHarry S. Truman Public. -
The Harry S. Truman Strike
(HST) Group, comprised of
approximately 7,500 Sailors
and Marines, is engaged in a
composite training unit exercise
(COMPTUEX), a three-week
evolution, designed to enhance
the training and skills of crew
members in preparation for an
upcoming fall deployment.
COMPTUEX is a multi-
week, intermediate-level exer-
cise required of each carrier
battle group before departing
for a seven-month deployment.
The exercise brings ships and
aircraft together to prepare to
project force as a battle group
in the interest of global mari-
time security and protecting the
nation's homeland security.
"COMPTUEX is a key fun-
damental training block that
allows Sailors to improve their


readiness," said Rear Adm.
Patrick Driscoll, commander,
Carrier Strike Group 10. "That
enhances our overall effective-
ness. When we successfully
complete COMPTUEX, we will
be surge capable and ready to
deploy in the event of an emerg-
ing contingency."
In the event of a contin-
gency or threat, COMPTUEX
will enable the strike group to
respond in an effective manner
and help set the conditions nec-
essary for proper security and
prosperity, thereby directly con-
tributing to the defense of our
homeland.
USS Harry S. Truman (CVN
75) has completed numer-
ous at-sea evolutions since the
beginning of the year in prepa-
ration for a 2009-2010 deploy-
ment. In addition to being the
ship's lengthiest sea trial before
deployment, COMPTUEX will


be the first evolution during
which Truman and other strike
group ships train together as a
cohesive battle unit.
Capt. John Meier, Truman's
executive officer, said the inte-
gration of the strike group is
vital to the training necessary
for Truman's success during
COMPTUEX.
"The basic overall goal of the
COMPTUEX exercise is really
for us to demonstrate our abil-
ity to operate as an integrated
strike group," said Meier. "This
is how we will fight, how we
will go into combat and how
we will go into harm's way. We
will be going into these scenari-
os with all of our strike group's
assets, so it's important we train
with all our assets."
Driscoll said COMPTUEX is
different from prior sea exer-
cises by its heightened degree
of training and level of focus.


"This will be the most intense
training we get as a strike
group before we deploy," said
Driscoll.
"Commander, Second Fleet
Vice Admiral Mel Williams
and Commander Fleet Forces
Training Atlantic Rear Admiral
Garry White and their staffs are
very focused on training the
HST carrier strike group and
are providing numerous aircraft,
ships and fast boats to act as
opposition."
"The ability to protect the
carrier, which is the great power
projection unit for the Navy, is
the key role of practicing our air
defense," said Meier. "We work
with all the units of the strike
group to ensure the protection
of this high-value target. It's all
about how we interoperate, how
we communicate and how we
fight as a strike group."
Successful completion of


COMPTUEX will certify
Truman and Carrier Air Wing
(CVW) 3 as qualified for open
ocean operations. It's not only
a critical step in the pre-deploy-
ment training cycle but a pre-
requisite for the battle group's
joint task force exercise (JTFX),
Meier added.
To achieve that success, the
battle group will need to rely on
the key to success in any mili-
tary strategy -- its people.
"COMPTUEX and CSG
operations are a team sport,"
said Driscoll. "The Sailors are
top-notch and highly-skilled,
and I know they're going to be
combat ready. My hope is we
will leave COMPTUEX with a
strong team and we will under-
stand each warfare command's
strengths and their efforts to the
overall fight."
CSG-10 is made up of the air-
craft carrier Harry S. Truman;


its embarked air wing, CVW 3;
embarked Destroyer Squadron
(CDS) 26; the guided missile
cruiser USS Hue City (CG 66)
the guided missile destroy-
ers USS Carney (DDG 64),
USS Oscar Austin (DDG 79)
and USS Winston S. Churchill
(DDG 81); and the attack sub-
marine USS Norfolk (SSN 714).

Stephen W. Groves Excels During COMPTUEX


By Lt.j.g. Timothy Shaffer
From USS Stephen W. Groves Public.
Office
USS Stephen W. Groves participated
in a Comprehensive Training Exercise
(COMPTUEX) from June 18 to July 1
with the USS Harry S. Truman Strike
Group.
The Carrier Strike Group and opposi-
tion force (OPFOR) consisted of more
than 20 U.S. surface combatants, sub-
marines, and air units. Throughout the
exercise, Stephen W. Groves conducted
undersea warfare exercises, maritime
interdiction operations, assist and visit
operations, maritime infrastructure
protection, and helicopter operations.
Each of these evolutions was designed
to test the ship's proficiency and stretch
the crew's endurance to the limits in
an effort to increase overall readiness
for deployment and sustainment phase
operations. Completing multiple evo-
lutions throughout the days and nights,
the crew maintained a high operational
tempo designed to simulate combat
operations.

VBSS team prepares to conduct maritime security


operations.
Stephen W. Groves conducted two
refueling at sea (RAS) evolutions,
including a highly technical night-


time RAS for unit certification. Also,
the ship's Visit, Board, Search, and
Salvage (VBSS) team conducted five


maritime interdiction boardings and
several days of approach and visit
operations. Some of the scenarios
turned into challenging, non-compli-
ant boardings that required the entire
crew's backup and support. A prize
crew took command of two non-com-
pliant vessels, and on several occasions
Stephen W Groves embarked and pro-
cessed high-interest detainees from the
suspect vessels.
Stephen W. Groves was also noted
as a top performer in the exercise's
two battle problems. Conducting mari-
time infrastructure protection opera-
tions around a simulated oil platform,
the ship rapidly executed pre-planned
responses within a de-escalatory rules
of engagement context. The platform
was safely guarded during a 24-hour
period before the threat was dispersed.
Later, Stephen W. Groves received a
Bravo Zulu message for her success-
ful efforts in defending USS Harry S.
Truman from OPFOR hostilities.
During the exercise, Commander
Strike Force Training, Atlantic, Rear


Adm. Garry White, visited USS
Stephen W. Groves. Greeted by a very
excited crew, White had the opportuni-
ty to be taken on a tour by Stephen W.
Groves' Commanding Officer, Cmdr.
Edward Gettins, as well as speak to
the ship's company on the mess decks.
White emphasized the importance of
taking a heavy strain during training
exercises in order to prepare for real
world security and combat operations.
Having completed the integrated
phase wicket toward deployment certi-
fication, USS Stephen W. Groves now
enters a final month of preparation
before deploying. The exercise was a
great opportunity to prepare and train
the crew in multi-ship operations and
advanced maritime security operations.
The entire crew performed superbly
and is eagerly awaiting its upcoming
deployment as part of Standing NATO
Maritime Group One.


Phil Sea Receives Labor Reducing SPY-1 Heat Exchanger


By FCC(SW) Anthony A.
Belbeck
Cruiser Class Squadron
Every SPY-1 Naval radar
technician dreads the day that
the daily cooling skid PMS
check, 4560/502 D-l, shows
a pressure difference between
gauges M11 and M12 greater
than 10 psi for copper-nickel
and 20 psi for titanium heat
exchangers. For those techni-
cians it means planning for the
opportune time (typically next
port-of-call or homeport), and
a week of 12-hour days focused
on roddingg out" or cleaning
the skid heat exchangers. For
Combat Information Center
watchstanders, that means the
loss of the primary air and sur-
face search radar for the same
period.
Now there is an approved
time and labor-saving alterna-
tive. Ship Change Document
(SCD) 5920 was approved in
August 2008 for the optional
installation of A-Style Bonnets
on all Aegis ships as an
Alteration Equivalent to Repair
(AER) type alteration. A-Style


Bonnets have been used for
more than 50 years on seawater
heat exchangers and are used
extensively on commercial/mer-
chant ships, power plants, and
chemical/industrial installations.
Cruisers going through cruiser
modernization (CGMOD) will
be retro-fitted with A Style
Bonnets. USS Bunker Hill (CG
52) was the first to go through
the modernization and recently
received the alteration. USS
Mobile Bay (CG 53) and USS
Philippine Sea (CG 58) are also
scheduled to receive the altera-
tion.
Kits can be directly procured
from the vendor: ITT Standard
(no kit NSN yet available). The
ITT Standard part number for
A-Style Bonnets, "Channel
Backfit Kit" is
DDG 51-112 and CG 65-73

OA 75920 Final ORDALT
Instruction was formally issued
in Oct 2008. It is not a pro-
gram-sponsored alteration and
is meant to be an optional buy
for ship's maintenance teams
as a labor reducing initiative
for Sailors. Ships will have to
obtain funding from their Port
Engineer for kits.
Using A-Style Bonnets
resolves two major issues on
seawater heat exchangers:


save $21,000
save $19,000


Greatly reduces Sailors'
maintenance hours by 90% to
clean heat exchangers (from 80-
100 manhours over a 4-5 day
period, to only 8-10 manhours,
in only a 2-4 hour period.)
Greatly reduces or elimi-
nates shut-down period of
Combat System Equipment to
clean heat exchangers.
But the alteration is costly.
The cost for one kit is $30-
39,000, which will convert one
heat exchanger (there are two
heat exchangers per SPY cool-
ing skid). It is recommended
that cruisers purchase at least
two kits and outfit one heat
exchanger on each cooling
skid and destroyers purchase at
least one kit to outfit one heat

If funding only allows the
purchase of one kit per cool-

exchanger on each skid should

and should be the only unit
operated in port. This provides
the greatest benefit as in port

SBR Goes



To Boston


By Ensign Beth-Ann C.
Dick
USS Samuel B. Roberts PAO
USS Samuel B. Roberts (FFG
58) pulled in to Charlestown,
Massachusetts, a small town
within the bustling city of
Boston to help the city celebrate
Bunker Hill Day on June 11.
Boston is rich in history and
Sammy B. was eager to contrib-
ute to the festival.
Just two piers over
from Sammy B. was USS
Constitution, the Navy's oldest
commissioned ship. Adjacent,
resided USS Cassin Young (DD
793) which was built in the
Boston Navy Yard and launched
in 1943. Both ships now float
as memorials and serve as
working museums. Sammy
B. Sailors were able to tour
both ships, receiving special-
ized tours, and met sailors who
served on Cassin Young.
The crew, many of whom
were decked out in their summer
whites, was able to purchase
discount tickets to Fenway Park
on June 11 to watch the Boston
Red Sox play the New York
Yankees, and enjoy an exciting
game at the oldest stadium in
the country. The main event
for Sammy B. was watching the
ship's color guard present the
colors on the field before the
game began. This great honor
was carried out flawlessly as
the proud color guard stood tall
during the National Anthem and
amidst great cheers from the
crowd.


A group of Sailors partici-
pated in a community relations
project on June 12, volunteering
their time at the New England
Shelter for Homeless Veterans
by making repairs to the build-
ing and preparing and serv-
ing hot meals to the veterans.
More importantly, Sammy B.'s
Sailors spent time visiting and
sharing sea stories with the vet-
erans as well as recognizing the
service and sacrifices by each
individual.
Later that day, Sammy B.'s
Commanding Officer, Cmdr.
Chuck L. Sellers, and an assort-
ment of officers and enlisted
joined the Bunker Hill Parade
Chief Marshall for a banquet at
the Knights of Columbus Hall
to help show the City's appre-
ciation for Sammy B.'s visit.
Boston's hospitality and cel-
ebration that was shown to all
throughout the port visit con-
tinued on June 13 with free
tickets for Sammy B.'s crew to
Navy Night at the Boston Pops,
which featured the Navy Band
Northeast Wind Ensemble. The
amazing concert was a special
treat for all who attended.
On Friday and Saturday,
Sammy B. held public tours,
allowing Bostonians a glimpse
of the mighty warship.
Locals, tourists, veterans, and
even a plank owner from the
1986 commissioning crew lined
up to learn a little bit about the
ship's mission, history, and
what life is like as a Sammy B.
Sailor. During the two days,

more than 350 people visited
the ship.
The culmination of her stay
in Boston came on June 14,
when Sammy B.'s immaculate
looking crew marched in the YO U DESERV
Bunker Hill Day Parade for
several miles over the streets
of Charlestown, as street lined
spectators proudly showed their LIVE CLC
enthusiasm and support.

While supporting midshipmen
training in Norfolk, Va., USS
Boone's Commanding Officer,
Cmdr. Steve Petroff, and
CMDCM (SW/AW) Messenger
took advantage of a rare ship's
visit to the Norfolk area to meet
with some of the Boone Health
Clinic's staff.
USS Boone and the Boone
Clinic are both named after the
late Vice Adm. Joel T. Boone,
USN, who was a WWI Medal of
Honor recipient. Adm. Boone
also served as personal physi-
cian for Presidents Harding,

Toehe e a UMk

Cmdr. Gordon Smith,
Boone's Medical Clinic Officer
in Charge, led a tour of the clin-
ic, where gifts were exchanged
and time was spent reflecting
uponAdm. Boone's legacy. The
Boone Health Clinic is located
on the Naval Amphibious Base
in Norfolk and has been in oper-
ation since 1974.

USS Hue City Supply Department earned outstanding scores during a recent Supply Management
Certification.


By Ensign Carl Odom
USS Hue C, r
USS Hue City's Supply Department is keep-
ing stocked according to the recent Supply
Management Certification (SMC).
Near-perfect inventories in S1, coupled with
the best PUK (Pack Up Kit) on the waterfront,
contributed to Supply Support's outstanding score
96.42 percent. Likewise, Food Service division's
ability to maintain 100 percent inventory accu-
racy and sanitation standards earned them an
excellent score of 91.98 percent. All their hard
work and dedication paid off, as this is the high-
est Food Service score in the Mayport Basin.
Hue City's Retail Operations performed just a
well. S-3 was able to showcase an operation that
was up to the challenge of offering 100 percent
Crew support while maintaining 100 percent
inventory validity.
Though the smallest of four divisions, Hue


City's Postal Operation pulled more than its own
weight. Their ability to handle hundreds of piec-
es of mail every week with above average effi-
ciency earned them an outstanding score of 96.17
percent.
"Hard work, dedication, leadership and thor-
ough planning were key components to Hue
City earning an overall score of 95.77 percent,"
according to the Supply Officer, Lt Cmdr. (sel)
Chris Pressler.
The ATG lead assessor, Master Chief Culinary
Specialist (SW) Holmes, lauded Hue City's
Supply Department for achieving the highest
overall score in Mayport Basin to date.
Though SMC is a Supply Department inspec-
tion, they could not have obtained such high
scores on their own. Bravo Zulu goes out to A-
Gang (Auxiliaries Division) and the Electricians
for their relentless support in getting all of
Supply's equipment fully operational.

When visitors arrive on board
USS Farragut (DDG 99), their
first stop is always the newly
completed Farragut Pride
Passageway. The passageway
contains displays of mementos
from the life of the ship as well
as a full-size mural, designed

USWTR

Study Out
By MC1(SW/AW)
Bleu Moore
U.S. Fleet Forces Public. i"
The Navy released a Final
Overseas Environmental Impact
Statement/Environmental
Impact Statement (OEIS/EIS)
that examined potential effects
of an Undersea Warfare Training
Range (USWTR) June 26.
The study published the
results of an extensive environ-
mental analysis associated with
the establishment of an instru-
mented sonar training range off
the East Coast of the United
States for anti-submarine war-
fare (ASW) training.
The preferred alternative
identified in the EIS would
locate a USWTR approximate-
ly 50 nautical miles offshore
of northeastern Florida in the
Jacksonville operating area.
The Navy's use of sonar, and
the ability to test and train with
it, is critical to U.S. operational
readiness and national defense.
The Navy needs this range
because it increasingly oper-
ates in littoral, or near-shore,
environments. A major poten-
tial threat to Sailors and ships
are very quiet diesel-electric
submarines that operate in such
waters. USWTR's proposed
500-square-nautical mile range
would directly improve the
readiness of Sailors who detect
underwater threats by allowing
them to train in shallow, littoral
waters.
ASW is a perishable skill that
must be continually honed, both
by the technicians who oper-
ate the sonar systems and the
fleet assets that deploy the tech-
nology. Sailors must be ready
to defend themselves and the
nation on the first day of com-
bat. Having an instrumented
training range on the East Coast
will ensure that Sailors can
conduct realistic training in all
the scenarios they may face in
future combat operations.
"Having USWTR will pro-
vide a significant enhancement
to our ASW training effective-
ness," said Jene Nissen, envi-
ronmental acoustics policy
manager, U.S. Fleet Forces
Command. "With an instru-
mented range a training event
can be analyzed in real time and
after the fact to determine what
was done right and what was
done wrong. From the informa-
tion we can make corrections to
the training, as well as our tac-
tics and procedures to improve
a ship, submarine or aircraft's
ability to conduct ASW"
The Final OEIS/EIS is avail-
able to the public online at
http://proj ects.earthtech.com/
uswtr/. In accordance with the
National Environmental Policy
Act, the secretary of the Navy
or his designated representa-


tive will announce a Record of
Decision in the Federal Register

"I think when others see what
kind of effort we put into this, it
will motivate them and inspire
new ideas to make this ship
ours and to boost morale and
pride around the deckplates,"
Remillard said.
During his 10-year naval
career, he has never been a

"I think that one day way
in the future when this ship is
decommissioned, this painting
will be cut out of the ship and
placed in a museum somewhere.
It's an awesome legacy to leave
behind-knowing that we moti-

through that passageway each
day," he concludes.

Trident Warrior Kicks Off Aboard Nassau


By MC1(SW)
Mary Popejoy
USS Nassau Public, i
The first phase of Trident
Warrior 2009 (TW09) started
with a series of briefings for
stakeholders, industry and
media aboard the amphibious
assault ship USS Nassau (LHA
4) in Norfolk.
As the flagship for TW09,
Nassau hosts two-thirds of the
95 experiments focusing on
expediting cyberspace technol-
ogy to the warfighter.
"The media had no idea there
were so many experiments
taking place under one roof
on a ship this size," said Brad


Poeltler, TW09 deputy director.
"They were impressed by how
sophisticated naval warfare has
become and the communica-
tions capabilities of the Nassau
as well."
TW09 is sponsored by 2nd
Fleet and directed by Naval
Network Warfare Command
(NETWARCOM), which focus-
es on at-sea technical experi-
mentation of critical maritime
technologies.
"This is great stuff," said
Capt. Carl Conti, direc-
tor of NETWARCOM's
FORCEnet Innovation and
Experimentation.
"Our goal is to change the


autonomy of how we do busi-
ness. It will help us save time,
money and lives by taking
people out of the equation and
replacing them with machines.
We're trying to make lives bet-
ter at sea, and Trident Warrior is
one way for us to do that."
TW09 is a team effort with
assistance from Nassau, 2nd
Fleet, 4th Fleet, 6th Fleet,
USS Normandy (CG 60),
USS Bulkeley (DDG 84),
USS Farragut (DDG 99), USS
Alexandria (SSN 757) and mul-
tiple U.S. Navy and Air Force
aircraft.
As the largest and most com-
plex afloat experiment to date,


the TW09 consists of 95 tech-
nologies and the participation
of government sponsors and
industry sources to test cyber-
space concepts and capabilities
at sea, testing them in a real-
world environment and learning
what is useful and should be
implemented or advanced on a
fast track.
"This experiment is impor-
tant because it allows us to
take existing and emerging
technologies to sea, put them
through rigorous tests and see
what works and what doesn't so
we can learn those lessons and
make the appropriate changes,"
said Cmdr. David Varnes, TW09


director.
TW09 technologies are orga-
nized into 12 focus areas includ-
ing networks, coalition, infor-
mation operations, command
and control, intelligence, sur-
veillance and reconnaissance,
electronic warfare, distance
support, information aware-
ness/cross-domain solutions and
maritime domain awareness.
Nassau Commanding Officer
Capt. Ronald Reis said he is
eager to get to sea and explore
the technologies and collabora-
tive tools TW09 brings aboard
Nassau.
"As Nassau celebrates 30
years of service, we're thrilled


to participate in Trident Warrior
and witness how it enhances
global maritime partnerships
and regional stability," said
Reis. "We are warfighters who
belong at sea, so exciting to be a
part of this process and see cut-
ting-edge technology operating
aboard the Navy's top gator."
TW09's leaders said the
findings and recommenda-
tions from experiments will
be vital for Navy leadership to
make informed decisions on
the current and future course
for FORCEnet and the role of
cyberspace in future combat.


FRUKUS Scores Partnership Through Sport


By Lt. j.g. Peter Goodman
USS Klakring Public Affairs
More than 30 USS Klakring
(FFG 42) Sailors spent a day of
friendly competition with fellow
FRUKUS participants during a
sports day held in conjunction
with the annual exercise, June
21.
FRUKUS, which stands
for the participating countries
of France, Russia, the United
Kingdom and the United States,
is a naval exercise focus-
ing on strengthening maritime
partnerships and improving
interoperability and commu-
nication between the nations.
Participating U.S. forces include
Klakring and members of the
Commander, U.S. 6th Fleet


staff.
Events including soccer,
swimming, sailing, relay rac-
ing and tug-of-war took place
at various locations in the local
area including Laninon Sport
Playground, Ensle Athletics
Stadium and Brest Roadstead.
"The games gave all the
nations' Sailors a real oppor-
tunity to connect with each
other," said Ensign Sylvester
Campos, Klakring's first lieu-
tenant. "Everyone gave it their
all and played with nothing but
the best sportsmanship, helping
to make it a fun and successful
day."
This year's sports day is
one component of a broader
initiative to promote friendly


exchanges between the four
nations. Future events planned
include a barbecue, cross-deck
luncheons on each ship and a
reception aboard France's FS
Tourville (D 610), the country's
representative ship in this year's
FRUKUS. Klakring and crew
look ahead to additional oppor-
tunities for military-to-military
engagements when the ships
kick off the at-sea portion of the
exercise, scheduled later in the
week.
FRUKUS was created in
2003 to aid in talks between
France, Russia, the United
Kingdom, and the United States.
Sponsorship rotates between the
four navies with the lead nation

Web Site Up For Post-9/11 GI Bill Transfers


By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service
It's official. The Defense
Department signed off yester-
day on policies and procedures
servicemembers will use to
transfer their unused Post-9/11
GI Bill benefits to their spouses
or children, a Pentagon official
said June 23.
Eligible servicemembers will
be able to register their immedi-
ate family members to receive
those benefits on a new Defense
Department Web site, according
to Bob Clark, the Pentagon's
assistant director for accessions
policy.
Defense officials are asking
those whose families won't use
the benefits for the upcoming
fall semester to hold off regis-
tering until mid-July so appli-
cants who need immediate
attention get processed first.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill takes
effect Aug. 1, offering a two-
fold benefit, Clark said. It
gives the military a tool to help
encourage recruiting and reten-
tion, while allowing career ser-
vicemembers the first oppor-
tunity "to share the benefits
they've earned with those they
love," he said.
The transferability provi-
sion which Defense Secretary
Robert M. Gates pushed after
first hearing the idea from a

tory that a navy admiral assumed the post,

military spouse group at Fort
Hood, Texas has generated a
lot of excitement.
"We have had an overwhelm-
ing response and do expect
quite a few of our members to
take advantage of this," Clark
said.
To prepare for the antici-
pated response in the run-up to
the Aug. 1 effective date, the
department launched a secure
Web site so servicemembers can
register any immediate family
members to receive their unused
benefits, Clark said.
"What we are doing is queu-
ing up requests and approvals
for the many family members
that we expect to be going to
school this fall" with hopes of
using their spouse's or parent's
Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, he
said.
The site, https://www.dmdc.
osd.mil/TEB/, is accessible


using a common access card,
Defense Department self-service
user identification or a Defense
Finance and Accounting Service
personal identification number.
Eligible servicemembers
can register the names of any
immediate family member they
would like to share their ben-
efits with, even designating
how many months of benefits
each person named can receive,
Clark explained.
The servicemember's 36
months of benefits the equiva-
lent of four nine-month academ-
ic years can be transferred to a
spouse, one or more children or
any combination, he said.
The family member must
be enrolled in the Defense
Eligibility Enrollment Reporting
System to receive the benefits.
Servicemembers also have the
option to use some benefits
themselves and transfer what
they haven't used to one or
more family members.
Even after transferring the
benefits, they remain the "prop-
erty" of the servicemember
who earned them, who can
revoke them or redesignate
who receives them at any time.
However, new names can be
added as long as the member is
in the military, but not after sep-
arating or retiring, Clark said.
So defense officials advise


which originated in 1951 with Army Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower. Stavridis is the 16th
American officer to hold the post.
"Today I am lucky enough to find myself
standing on the bridge, ready to take the
watch, but I know I am not taking the watch
alone," Stavridis said after assuming com-
mand.
"With me are over 70,000 shipmates
- military and civilian in three conti-
nents from the populated plains and
coasts of Europe to the bright blue of the
Mediterranean Sea, from the high mountain
passes of Afghanistan to the distant Arctic
Circle," Stavridis said.
"You stand in a long line of heroes who
stood and delivered across this continent for


erring on the side of caution and
including every eligible fam-
ily member on the registration
form.
"We are recommending that
every eligible dependent receive
at least one month of benefit,"
he said.
Once the servicemember
registers for the transferability
provision, the application auto-
matically gets forwarded to the
appropriate service for process-
ing. Clark said he expects that
process to take about a week,
at least after the initial surge.
When the service verifies
that the member is eligible to
receive Post-9/11 GI Bill ben-
efits and processes the trans-
ferability provisions, the family
member will receive a certifi-
cate of eligibility that can be
used to cover educational costs.
In a nutshell, any enlisted or
commissioned member of the
armed forces serving on active
duty or in the Selected Reserve
on or after Aug. 1 will be eli-
gible to transfer their benefits
-- as long as they qualify for
the Post-9/11 GI Bill and meet
specific service requirements,
Clark explained.
He emphasized that, by law,
anyone who has retired or sepa-
rated from the service before
that date even if it's July 31
- won't be entitled to transfer


decades in both war and peace," the admiral
continued. "I honor your service, I pledge
my support and loyalty to each of you, and
I will continue to strengthen the pillars of
our transatlantic bridge as we build new
ones. That is my mission, and I will do my
best."
Stavridis is responsible to NATO's
highest military authority, its Military
Committee, for the overall direction and
conduct of NATO military operations. He
also serves as commander of U.S. European
Command.


their benefits. Also exclud-
ed will be members of the
Individual Ready Reserve and
Fleet Reserve.
Most servicemembers who
have at least six years of mili-
tary service as of Aug. 1 and
agree to serve an additional
four years qualify, he said. But
department officials have pro-
posed measures to cover several
categories of servicemembers
whose circumstances don't fit
neatly into the formula.
For example, those with at
least 10 years of service but
who can't serve an additional
four years because of a service
or department policy also
would qualify, Clark said.
They must, however, serve
the maximum time allowed
before separating from the mili-
tary, he said.
"What we did not want to do
was to penalize those people
who had a service policy or
statute that would not permit
them to commit for the full four
years," he explained.
Another sunset provision will
cover servicemembers who will
reach the 20-year service mark,
making them retirement-eligi-
ble, between Aug. 1, 2009, and
Aug. 1, 2013. Clark explained
the breakdown, which basically
enables those affected to trans-
fer benefits as long as they com-

Uniform
lated in NAVADMIN 343/08.
Multiple regions across the
United States and overseas are
still not wearing the NWU due
to distribution constraints, so
West pointed out that the man-
ner of wear policy is even more
critical now as Sailors transfer
to those areas. Leadership (CO/
CMC) has been authorized to
wear the NWU since December
and should already be wearing
it in the areas where Sailors will
soon be showing up.
"We have people rolling from
one region to another and com-
ing from boot camp, wearing
the NWU. I'm looking to them
as the Sailors who are going to
meet the standards as set forth
in the NAVADMIN and the
Uniform Regulations, but more
importantly, I expect the CPO


plete 20 years of service:
*Those eligible for retirement
on Aug. 1, 2009, will be eligible
to transfer their benefits with no
additional service requirement.
*Those with an approved
retirement date after Aug. 1,
2009, and before July 1, 2010,
will qualify with no additional
service.
*Those eligible for retirement
after Aug. 1, 2009, but before
Aug. 1, 2010, will qualify with
one additional year of service
after approval to transfer their
Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.
*Those eligible for retirement
between Aug. 1, 2010, and July
31, 2011, will qualify with two
additional years of service after
approval to transfer.
*Those eligible to retire
between Aug. 1, 2011, and July
31, 2012, will qualify with three
additional years of service after
approval to transfer.

mess to maintain the standards
expected of our high caliber
Sailors," said West.
The NAVADMIN also states
that wear of the NWU/CUU
will be restricted inside the
National Capital Region (NCR).
Navy personnel on staffs locat-
ed in or visiting the NCR will
not be able to wear the NWU
or CCU as their uniform of the
day. Commanders, according to
the message, may prescribe the
NWU/CUU for those Sailors in
the NCR requiring that uniform
for work that would soil the uni-
form of the day.
"I look forward to seeing the
public's reaction to our new uni-
form," said West. "And I know
our Sailors are eager to get out
there and show it off."

NWCA MavDort Celebrates 50 Years


From NWCA
Fifty years ago Navy Wives
Clubs of America, Inc.,
(NWCA) officially chartered
and installed its first Club at
Naval Station Mayport.
The club came to life in June
1959 with a membership made
up of 20 Navy wives, who came
together as a group for support
to each other and their fami-
lies while their husbands were
deployed.
They met the first Tuesday of
each month at the Base library.
They started their Charity
work with the nursery located
on base with a Hospitality Box
that included household items
brought in by members to lend
to any new service families in
need. They raised money for
their organization with a cake
raffles, bakes sales, conducted
luncheons and socials to help
out families or other charita-
ble organizations such as the
American Cancer Society, USO
and the base nursery. The addi-
tion of a building set aside by
the base for use as a clubhouse
and later as a thrift store helped
make up a permanent location
and income provider for this
new club.
Today's NWCA Mayport
members still act as a support
system for each other and their
families along with other mili-
tary families, and military per-
sonnel stationed at Mayport or
deployed.
The Nearly New Shop is still
operated by the Navy Wives
with donations provided from
the community. Thrift store
profits and donations are used to

The Navy encourages active-

in a sexual assault study to
assess the effectiveness of the
Navy's Sexual Assault Victim
Intervention (SAVI) program.
The Office of the Naval
Inspector General (IG) is con-
ducting the survey, which is
available at www.ig.navy.mil/

designed for active-duty person-
nel, is confidential, anonymous,
and will be available for partici-

Naval IG teams are also visit-

through the end of September.
As part of the visits, they are
facilitating focus group discus-

occurrences and command sup-

assault. Each focus group will

FERP Helps Navy


Families Work


From Fleet and Family Readi-
ness Marketing, Commander, Navy
Installations Command
Military family mem-
bers who need assistance
with employment issues can
receive help from their local
Fleet and Family Support
Program (FFSP). The
Navy's Family Employment
Readiness Program (FERP)
provides consultation with
employment experts at no
cost.
Established by law as part
of the Military Family Act
of 1985, FERP provides
assistance to military fam-
ily members in developing,
improving or continuing their
professional careers while
sharing in the military mem-
ber's lifestyle.
"The Navy recognizes that
moving every few years cre-
ates career challenges for mil-
itary spouses," said Panshella
Cole, Family Employment
Readiness Program ana-
lyst, Commander, Navy
Installations Command
(CNIC). "FERP addresses
those challenges in work-
shops and through individu-
alized assistance."
Although FERP is not a
job placement service, FFSP
employment professionals
can assist family members by
providing them with resume
writing services, interview
techniques and tips on dress-
ing for success.
Family members can
expect to learn valuable skills
from workshops and semi-

create a framework for fur-
ther educational exploration,
in areas such as self-directed
job search, resume writing,
federal employment oppor-
tunities, career planning and
financing a career change.
"It was very difficult for
me to face the challenge of
searching for employment
after staying home with my
children for five years. The
Work and Family Life spe-
cialist at Fleet and Family
Support Center helped me
to organize my military and
volunteer experience into
a format and language that
employers are looking for,"
said Brenda Fields, NAS
Fallon, Nev. "This helped
me to gain the confidence I
needed to step forward into
the job market."
FERP partners with the
Department of Defense,
the Department of Labor,
Military Spouse Corporate
Career Network, Navy
League, Avue Central and
the Department of the Navy's
employment Web site, www.

July 15, 8-11:30 a.m., Stress
Management, Wellness Center
Stress is a normal part of
everyone's life. It can be ener-


approximately 20 people from
various rank categories.
The Navy's SAVI Program is
managed by Commander, Navy
Installations Command's Fleet
and Family Support Program.
The Fleet and Family Support
Program manages a wide vari-
ety of programs, including
SAVI. These programs enhance
Sailor readiness and family pre-
paredness, directly contributing
to mission readiness.
The Navy is the first of the
armed service to have a dedi-
cated program for sexual assault
awareness, prevention, and
intervention. Established in
1994, the program has recent-
ly shifted more focus toward
prevention and is incorporating
new initiatives based on civil-
ian best practices and recent
research.
"Sexual assault is a crime
and will not be tolerated," said
Paul Finch, SAVI's program
manager. "It is a criminal act,
incompatible with the Navy's
core values; it dramatically
affects morale and operational


readiness. Senior leadership is
committed to an effective and
responsive SAVI program in
order to ensure prevention, qual-
ity victim care and response and
to holding offenders account-
able."
In working toward this com-
mitment, the Navy is sustaining
a robust sexual assault preven-
tion and response policy, identi-
fying and eliminating barriers to
reporting, ensuring that care is
available and accessible to vic-
tims of sexual assault, and pro-
viding continuous, relevant, and
effective training and educa-
tion to all service members. All
Navy commands have a 24/7
sexual assault response capabil-
ity focused on victim support.
Commanders ensure that female
and male sexual assault victims
(or survivors) have access to the
assistance and resources to meet
their needs and to provide a safe
and professional work environ-
ment.


Family Support Launches


Facebook, Twitter Pages


By Bruce Moody
Fleet and Family Support Program,
Commander, Navy Installations Com-
mand
The Fleet and Family Support
Program launched a Facebook
and Twitter page this week in its
effort to promote the self-reli-
ance and resiliency of Sailors
and their families.
Social media is one of sev-
eral means the program is using
to provide information that
strengthens Navy and family
members and supports mission
readiness.
"We're here to assist com-
manders in planning for and
responding to family sup-
port needs," Kathy Korth,
Commander, Navy Installation's
Family Readiness Program
Manager, said. "Social media
will help facilitate the building
of a strong community network
of services."
The Fleet and Family Support
Program is celebrating its 30th
anniversary this year. The first


Family Service Center opened
in Norfolk on July, 9, 1979.
Since then the program has
experienced an unprecedented
expansion of programs and ser-
vices to meet the demands of a
mobilized war fighting force in
Iraq, Afghanistan, and through-
out CENTCOM area of opera-
tions.
"The Navy has grown over
the past 30 years," Korth said,
"and we've grown with it. We
must remain relevant to the mis-
sion, the Maritime Strategy."
To remain relevant, the Fleet
and Family Support Program is
going where its primary audi-
ence is, 18-24 year olds. More
than three quarters of them have
a profile on a social network
site, according to a December
2008 survey from the Pew
Internet & American Life
Project.
"We want Sailors and their
families to know there are
many programs and services
that can help them navigate the


uniqueness of Navy life," Korth
said. "And, even though we
have Fleet and Family Support
Centers located at bases around
the world, we understand that
not everyone has easy access to
them. We want all Navy fami-
lies to know there are answers
to their questions."
The Fleet and Family Support
Program focuses on deploy-
ment support, crisis response,
career support and counseling
for individuals, families and
commands, and provides these
professional services through
education classes and individ-
ual appointments at installa-
tion Fleet and Family Support
Centers.

Program's Facebook page is

giving and a factor in motivat-
ing us. But too much stress,
without relief, can have debil-
itating effects. This program
is designed to provide partici-
pants with an understanding of
what stress is and how it affects
them. It will also help partici-
pants begin to look at their own
lives and ways they currently
cope with stress. Participants
will be challenged to develop
behavior and lifestyle changes
that will improve their ability to
cope with stress.
July 16, 8-11 a.m., Anger
Management, FFSC
What does anger do for you?
Communicate for you? Keep
people at a safe distance from
you? Keep you in charge? For
many people, anger serves them
many uses, but all too often,
it is at a high cost...usually of
relationships, unhappiness in
the workplace, and a general
feeling of disdain. If you want
to be able to break out of the
"get angry/get even" syndrome,
come to this class. Participants
learn how anger and judgment
are related, about irrational
beliefs and faulty self-talk, what
"E + R = 0" means, and the
roles of stress and forgiveness
in anger.
