Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Japan, Public, i-
Sailors can now submit their own job applications
when negotiating for orders using the Web-based Career
Management System Interactive Detailing (CMS/ID),
according to a NAVADMIN released July 7.
CMS/ID is an online program designed to enable
Sailors to apply for available job assignments for per-
manent changes of duty stations.
"I think it's a great change," said Navy Counselor 1st
Class Lalia Gonzalez, NAF Atsugi's Command Career
Counselor Office. "It gives Sailors more control over
the negotiating process and a better idea of the limita-
tions we [career counselors] sometimes face."
Previously, Sailors had to rely on their command
career counselors to submit their applications through


the CMS/ID system, said Gonzalez, but beginning with
the July 9 application cycle, Sailors are now able to
submit applications on their own.
Though Sailors can apply for their own jobs, the
program still regulates which jobs are available to them
through a system of "gates," set up to prevent Sailors
from choosing jobs they may not be qualified for.
There are a variety of factors that can trigger a gate
to close on an application including consecutive over-
seas tour (COT) approval, expired exceptional family
member (EFM) information, Perform to Serve (PTS),
pay grade and more. Only detailers are able to override
any gates. Also, any applications submitted are subject
to be review or modification by career counselors,
explained Gonzalez.
"It's great for those Sailors who may already be

USS Carney JO Receives


Lanny King Award


From USS Carney
Members of the U.S. Naval
Academy Class of 1964, along
with the crew of USS Carney,
gathered on board to recog-
nize Lt.j.g. James Hostetler
as the recipient of the 2008
Cmdr. Lanny King Memorial
Leadership Award on July 10.
The award is presented
annually and was named for
Carney's first Commanding
Officer, Cmdr. Lanny King,
who passed away prior to the
ship's commissioning. Since
then, the Naval Academy Class
of '64 has sponsored the leader-
ship award.
After receiving recommen-
dations from the Wardroom
and CPO Mess, Carney's
Commanding Officer, Cmdr.
Brendan McLane, selected
Hostetler as the division offi-
cer who best embodies King's
vision of leadership, integrity,
and compassion.
Hostetler enlisted in the
Navy in 1997 as an Electronics
Technician and earned his com-

mission in 2006 through the
STA-21 program. He is cur-
rently serving in his second
Division Officer tour as Damage
Control Assistant.
In addition to having his
name engraved on a ceremonial


plaque displayed in the ship's
Wardroom, Hostetler received
a monetary award from the
Class of 1964, a plaque present-
ed by the Carney Wardroom,
and a Navy and Marine Corps
Achievement Medal.


Reconstruct NSPS? Maybe


By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
A Defense Business Board task group has
recommended reconstruction of the National
Security Personnel System.
Rudy DeLeon, the chairman of the group and
former deputy defense secretary, said NSPS, a
pay-for-performance system, tried to do "too
much, too quickly," and his group recommended
the moratorium on converting general schedule
jobs to NSPS continue.
About 205,000 of the 865,000 Defense
Department civilians are in NSPS. The full
Defense Business Board will review the task
group's recommendations and will prepare a
report for Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates.
The first recommendation is to reconstruct the


system.
"Reconstruction is a level of effort and sophis-
tication more than just fixes," DeLeon said. "It's
going to require a significant amount of diagnosis
before you come in with reconstruction."
DeLeon said an effective pay-for-performance
system requires commitments in time, money and
effort.
"A supportive culture requires leadership com-
mitment, open communication, transparency and
employee trust of supervisors and leaders," he
said.
A pay-for-performance system needs to evolve,
he said. "Trying to do something too quickly, too
ambitiously, may not produce the desired result,"
See NSPS, Page 3


familiar with the detailing process," said Gonzalez.
"Those who already know what to expect and which
orders they are looking for can apply directly, which
allows career counselors more time to work with those
who may be unsure what to do during their negotiation
period."
Though the application portion of CMS/ID has
changed, Sailors are still responsible for making sure
they have PTS approval and are within nine months of
their projected rotation date to be eligible for orders,
explained Gonzalez.
For more information about CMS/ID changes, refer
to NAVADMIN 200/09 or visit www.nko.navy.mil

Management heading.

2 THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, July 23, 2009


C O Column


Thanks for all who supported
the beach cleanup last week. I
was over at the St. Johns River
recycling with my son and the
USS The Sullivans showed up
in mass. We had fantastic sup-
port from several commands,
contractors, and groups of peo-
ple at all three locations. At
recycling alone, we collected
over two pickup trucks full of
trash. The best trash of course
is trash that never gets thrown
in the waterways so please con-
tinue to help our waterways and
coastlines stay clean.
Scams are on this rise. I
heard an account the other day
about a Sailor who was turned
down for a thousand dollar
loan from his bank and coin-
cidentally, the very next day
he received a phone call from
a Canadian company assur-
ing him he was qualified for a
TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR
LOAN. The company sent him
some documents via over night


Capt. Aaron Bowman
mail, the Sailor took those
documents to his LPO and it
looked like everything was
legitimate. PROBLEM: The
papers instructed him to send
SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS
to the company to "secure the
loan" and the Sailor did just
that. Additionally, after they
received his cash (he borrowed
it from a shipmate) they in turn


would over night his check.
PROBLEM: After not receiv-
ing the money the next day (big
surprise), he called the company
and was told the financial back-
er of the loan fell through but if
he sent another SIX HUNDRED
DOLLARS he would receive
the check the next day. Long
story short, he received nothing
and oh by the way, the company
can no longer be reached. Please
keep this lesson in mind. If it
sounds too good to be true, then
it isn't. If you receive anything
like this, go straight to legal or
NMCRS. They will help you
and will save you plenty of
trouble in the long run.
Worksheets have been signed
and exams are just around the
comer. If your not making time
for study at this point, your not
making rate. September will
be here before you know it
and now is the time to crack
the books. Making rate is hard
earned cash in your wallet and


increased responsibility. Make it
a priority and you will be sew-
ing on another chevron.
Your safety has always been
my top priority and when your
working out or just out and
about, please pay attention to
our flag conditions. These flags
will tell you what condition we
are in and this information is
VITAL to your safety.
Heat Flag information:
WHITE Extremely intense
physical exertion may precipi-
tate heat exhaustion or heat
stroke, therefore, caution should
be taken
GREEN Discretion required
in planning heavy exercise for
unseasoned personnel. This is a
marginal heat stress limit for all
personnel.
YELLOW Strenuous exer-
cise and activity should be cur-
tailed for new and unacclimated
personnel.
RED -Strenuous exercise cur-
tailed for all personnel with less


then 12 weeks acclimatization
in hot weather.
BLACK Physical training
and strenuous exercise suspend-
ed for all personnel (excluding
operational commitment not for
training purposes).
The rest of this month is shap-
ing out to be a busy one. Several
of our ships are returning along
with their HSL Dets, and USS
Dwight D. Eisenhower will pull
in on July 28 to receive 1,500+
tigers. Plenty of VIP visits are
coming our way too. Last week
we hosted Jacksonville Sheriff
John Rutherford and several of
his top officers. They received
a ship and base tour, and the
best chow in the Navy at our
base galley. Thanks to every-
one who had a hand in making
this visit a great one. They saw
first hand the talent and pride
all of you show each and every
day. Last week Fleet Master
Chief Tom Howard stopped
by as well and spoke to many


of you during the base-wide
E-6 and below call. We also
hosted the new SOUTHCOM
Commander, General Fraser
as he visited the Naval Station
and COMNAVSOUTH. Our
leadership makes these rounds
throughout the fleet for you.
They want to hear your con-
cerns from the deck plate level
and it is so important to attend
these "all hands" to get the
latest in all sorts of programs
that are being implemented to
improve quality of life for you
and your family.
Please keep an eye out while
you go through your day and
don't hesitate to let me know if
you see a better (or safer way)
to do business around the base.
Your concerns are my concerns,
so keep those suggestions roll-
ing in to the CO's suggestion
box located at the base galley,
or email them to aaron.bow-
man@navy.mil.


The legendary Vince
Lombardi became known as
the coach who turned the Green
Bay Packers from an uninspired
bunch of losers and misfits into
one of the greatest professional
football teams ever to play the
game. In 1970 Lombardi died
of cancer. Tributes poured in
from all over the country. But
the highest compliments came
from those who played under
him.
His coaching skills were the
stuff that legends are made of.
But what his players remem-
bered most about him was his
ability to encourage them with
words of approval. Yes, he
was known for his sternness and
strong discipline. So, when The
Coach offered compliments,

them wisely while others used
them frivolously. Those who

or small, in the service of the
Master received the "crown

Sweet Land of Liberty: Guide to Military Travel


By Erica I. Pefia-Vest
Military Travel Columnist
As a travel writer, I often get
asked travel related questions.
Where should I go? What do I
do when I get there? Is it fam-
ily-friendly? I sometimes get
asked the same questions so
often, I feel like I am giving an
automated response. Recently,
however, I was asked a ques-
tion that stumped me. Someone
asked me if I recommended a
'staycation'.
The term was foreign to me,
however 'staycations' are a con-
cept that has been gaining trac-
tion across the country in these
tough economic times, to the
point that it was even added to
the 2009 Webster's Dictionary.
For those, like me, that are
unfamiliar with the term it


means staying near your home
or at home instead of taking a
trip or vacation. It means find-
ing something fun to do in your
own back yard (literally and
figuratively) so that you can
save money instead of traveling
away from home which can be
cost prohibitive.
After I found out what it
meant, I was even more con-
fused. Isn't the whole purpose
of a vacation to get away? I
don't know about you but if I
stay home, it's no vacation. I
look around and see the chores
that need to be done. More
importantly, I look around as see
all the things my HUSBAND
hasn't done the grass doesn't
cut itself, Ryan! With that said,
why would I want to stay home
and play Scrabble for my vaca-


tion? Pure nonsense, I tell you!
As members of the armed
services, you have no reason
to stay home and explore this
'staycation' concept. There
are so many travel deals avail-
able to you all over the United
States. With free admission
to Disney Parks, Sea World,
Universal Studios and attrac-
tions all around the country,
you would be remiss not to take
a trip this year. Your biggest
expense will be the airfare or
gas to drive to your destination,
but even the airlines are heav-
ily discounting fares this year
and the rest of your trip is going
to be more affordable than has
ever been possible in the past.
I've seen that some hotels are
offering up to 50% off their
rates for military families.


Other hotels are offering added
value such as free upgrade to a
suite, free breakfast, free park-
ing, free high speed internet and
in some cases all of the above.
Attractions are offering free or
discounted admissions. Even
restaurants are offering a per-
centage off. I recently received
a list of stores that offer the mil-
itary a discount so now even
shopping while traveling is
more affordable!
I understand that the idea of
a 'staycation' came from an
attempt to save more and spend
less, but I just can't endorse it. I
love the concept of turning your
home into a festivity of love,
family and adventure, but I hope
you don't have to take leave to
have that. Make your home fun
- read an adventurous book as a


family, have game night, host a
weekend barbeque, host Friday
night movie night, pitch a tent
in the backyard with your kids
and pretend to make s'mores
(no fires please), or simply take
a walk through your neighbor-
hood. Plan a day trip, see the
local sites, visit the local chil-
dren's museum, eat at a foreign
restaurant and try something
new. Whatever you consider
a good time, do it and enjoy,
but don't cheat yourself out of
getting away. A vacation isn't
just a tradition, it's an oppor-
tunity- it's a chance to make a
memory. Think back to your
childhood vacations; no mat-
ter how long the trip, no matter
how much the car smelled by
the time you got there, no mat-
ter how bad the flight, no matter


how crowded the amusement
park it's a memory you cher-
ish. Don't rob your children of
those memories. Travel CAN
be affordable, especially for
members of the military. It's
the travel industry's sincere way
of thanking you for a job well
done, and one I advise you to
take advantage of.
Where do you find out about
all of these travel deals and
discounts? Log on to www.
guidetomilitarytravel.com for
the largest selection of military
travel discounts found...well,
anywhere. Enjoy your 'VA-cat-
ion'!

what do you do when the baby

The good news is TriCare

lines for accessing care are the
same whenever you are outside
your provider area. TriCare,
the military's heath system for
dependents is divided into four
geographical regions; TriCare
North, TriCare South, TriCare
West and TriCare Overseas.
Each region contracts with pri-
vate providers. TriCare's north
region contract provider is
HealthNet Federal Services. The
west region contract provider is
TriWest Healthcare Alliance and
the southern region provider is
Humana Military Healthcare
Services.
We are covered for 'urgent'
or 'emergent' care when on
the road. Margaret Franklin,
TriWest's Assistant Reserve
Liaison Officer and Beneficiary
Education Coordinator, explains
the difference. "Urgent care is

Former Mayport Coast Guard Cutter


Used For Artificial Reef Off Jacksonville
From Seventh District Public

A former Coast
Guard cutter was scut-
tled approximately 28
miles off the coast of
Jacksonville Friday
morning to create an
artificial reef. i
The former Coast

75-foot inland construc-
tion tender, was inten-
tionally sunk in approxi-
mately 110 feet of water
within the permitted arti- d
ficial reef area known
as "Harm's Ledge."
The former cutter was ;" -
decommissioned in 1986
after 20 years of service,
and Spike was originally
stationed in Mayport,
Fla.
After its decommis-
sioning, Spike was trans-
ferred to Safe Harbor
Haven, Inc., which is
now known as Safe
Harbor Boys Home of
Jacksonville. The ship
was then donated to the
City of Jacksonville to
be used as an artificial
reef.

NSPS
he said.
The overall conclusions are
that the pay-pool process is
overly complex and lacks trans-
parency. Also, payout formulas
are confusing. The task group
heard repeatedly that pay band 2
is too broad, and reassignments
within the pay bands fluctuate
from organization to organiza-
tion.
The group also believes that
NSPS has lessened the bonds of
trust between first-level super-
visors and employees.
"Re-establishing the [Defense
Department] commitment to


From Page 1


collaborating with employees
and manager associations is
essential," DeLeon said.
The task group also made rec-
ommendations for the general
schedule system.
"Overall, the department
needs to design a collab-
orative process for [Defense
Department] managers and
employees to design and imple-
ment a pay-for-performance
system," he said. "Bargaining
unit employees and the employ-
ees need to start from scratch in
terms of any alternatives for the
GS system."


The group recommended
replacing the current general
schedule classification system.
DeLeon said the personnel
system has to be changed.
"Never has the federal
workforce, particularly in [the
Defense Department], been as
important as it is right now," he
said. "After a period of using
contracting out, we've come
back to an understanding of
how critical the federal work-
force is in terms of the national
security mission of the United
States."

USS Vicksburg Enhances Ties In Europe


By Ensign Marc Schron
USS Vicksburg Public. Officer
Vicksburg recently complet-
ed their final 2009 deployment
port visit in Koper, Slovenia,
an incredible city located in
the north-eastern corer of the
Adriatic Sea.
Rich in history of the form-
ing of moder-day Europe, this
progressive city with sweeping
panoramic views of the country-
side, complete with vineyards
and waterfront property, proved
an outstanding respite from the
rigors of deployment life.
Upon arrival, Vicksburg host-
ed a press conference for print
media Delo, Slovenske Novice,
Spletno Delo and Slovene Press
Agency and TV channel Pop
TV. Vicksburg Commanding
Officer, Capt. Chuck Nygaard,
and the tour guides answered
all questions, ranging from
ship's manning to VIK's recent
Arabian Sea deployment.
Following the press conference,
attendees were given a tour of
the ship; tours were to become
the daily routine, as VIK hosted
tours for U.S. Embassy staff
and their families, the Slovenian
Army and Navy, and invited
guests from the city of Koper.


The culmination of
Vicksburg's pivotal visit was a
cocktail reception on the final
evening in port for Slovenian
and US diplomats, including
US Embassy staff and Defense
Attach office personnel. With
the flight deck dressed and an
SH-60B spread on deck, this
diplomatic mission was a grand
slam. Nearly 150 invitations
were also extended to national
and local guests, transform-
ing the mighty warship into an
entertainment facility to contin-
ue strengthening ties all around
the Mediterranean.
The port visit was certainly
not all work, as MWR spon-
sored tours throughout the coun-
tryside, to include white water
rafting and wine-tasting. The
crew branched our from Koper,
exploring down the coast to
Portoroz and frequenting the
many fine dining and shopping
establishments found up and
down the coast. As Vicksburg
heads west for a long-antici-
pated homecoming, her Sailors
look back fondly on their final
port visit, having made a lasting
impression both on the city and
on themselves.

Phil Sea Undergoes Cruiser Modernization


By Ensign Trey Souder
USS Philippine Sea PAO
Two short years ago, USS
Philippine Sea underwent an
intensive maintenance avail-
ability that included extensive
upgrades to both navigation
and engineering, and provided
Philippine Sea with cutting
edge technology such as Voyage
Management System (VMS)
and the Integrated Bridge
System (IBS). These modifica-
tions back in 2007, however,
were only the tip of the iceberg.
Philippine Sea recently
commenced phase two of her
upgrades, a 10-month Extended
Drydocking Selected Restricted
Availability (EDSRA) that will
make her the first Cruiser in
the Atlantic Fleet to complete
Cruiser Modernization. Phase
two upgrades will drastically
improve her tactical war-fight-
ing capability.
The upgrades include replac-
ing the SPQ-9A with the SPQ-
9B Fire Control Radar, a light-
weight radar set with a phased-
array antenna, replacing the
5"/54 cal MK45 MOD1 gun
mount with the 5"/62 cal MK45
MOD4 gun mount, upgrading to
the Block 1B Phalanx Weapons
System, a MK34 MOD 4 Gun
Weapons System upgrade to
replace the MK86 in support
of improving Naval Surface
Fire Support (NSFS) capabil-
ity, as well as numerous other
upgrades.

the EDSRA, the upper chain of

Sailors from USS Simpson
recently helped resurrect an
orphanage in Trujillo, Peru dur-
ing a port visit to the country.
Simpson Sailors were met
by American volunteer Nicole
Hansen, who gave the group
a brief history of the orphan-
age and tour of the grounds.
Founded in April of 2002, the
children's shelter "Hogar De
Esperanza" (Home of Hope) has
a modern infrastructure, with
an assembly hall, recreation
yard, gardens, grand kitchen,
and dinning room for the use of
the children. They live in "little
houses" in groups no greater
than 12 and are in the care of
professional tutors that live with
them: offering them care, pro-
tection, assistance, and love.
The shelter focuses on build-
ing the children's education and
self-esteem through enrolling
them in nearby schools and
involving the kids in events and
programs to develop their tal-
ents.
The orphanage, able to
accommodate up to 48 children,
was in need of preservation, in
specific: run down fences, chip-
ping and worn paint, a leaky
roof in one of the homes, and
some damaged playground
equipment. Since the children
were attending church servic-
es the group quickly began the
repairs in hopes of completing
all the tasks prior to the kids

Just as the fence's last tire

the children arrived from their
place of worship eager to help
add finishing touches to the

Base Holds Mid-Summer Shoreline Cleanup


By Scott Dombrosky
Water Program Manager
The 2009 Mid-Summer
Shoreline Clean-up was held
Thursday morning, July 16.
In support of the event, 123
volunteers, both military and
civilian personnel, gathered
at three separate locations on
Naval Station Mayport for a
one-hour focused event dedicat-
ed to removing trash and debris
from our river and ocean shore-
lines. Locations cleaned were
the Jetties, Reynolds Park, and
the Beach.
More than 200 bags of trash
were collected from these shore-
line areas in addition to 6 tires,
300 pounds of metal debris, 100
of wood debris, two mercury
lamps, two fuel tanks, and many
other odds and ends.


Several organizations
were represented by multiple
personnel including Public
Works, Security, NMC CED
Detachment Mayport, Air
Operations and Earl Industries.
Special recognition goes to
the USS The Sullivans, which
supplied 70 personnel for the
clean-up, several of whom pro-
vided assistance in disposing
of waste following the event.
A big thanks to all who partici-
pated.
The next organized clean-
up at Naval Station Mayport is
scheduled for Sept. 19 in con-
junction with the 24th Annual
International Coastal Cleanup.

waste.

HSL-46 Det Two Trains


With Royal Saudi Navy


From HSL-46
The "Chupacabras" of Helicopter Anti-
Submarine Squadron Light 46 Detachment Two
recently participated in Exercise Nautical Union
with the Royal Saudi Arabian Navy.
Det Two along with USS Halyburton (FFG
40), USS Paul Hamilton (DDG 60), and several
U.S. Navy Mine Countermeasure ships, visited
Al Jabayl, Saudi Arabia for the pre-exercise con-
ference and meetings. While in Al Jabayl, many
Halyburton and Det TWO personnel were able to
attend the Saudi's ship simulator and get tours of
several of their ships.
After leaving Al Jabayl, Halyburton and Paul
Hamilton participated in numerous events test-
ing their abilities and providing excellent training
to their crews. The "Chupacabras" flew several
flights in support of Halyburton's mission. Their
flights included Passenger Transfers, Surface


Surveillance, Maritime Intercepts, as well as a
simulated War at Sea exercise. The War at Sea
event tested all facets of the previous days train-
ing; placing the Halyburton and several Royal
Saudi Ships against Paul Hamilton and their own
contingent of Saudi warships.
The Royal Saudi Navy's Helicopter Wing
conducted Deck Landing Qualifications on
Halyburton during the exercise. The Super Puma
pilots and the ship received valuable interoper-
ability training during the event. The final day's
events cumulated in a PHOTO EX with all exer-
cise participants.
"It was a very rewarding experience to be able
to work with the Saudi Navy and their pilots. I'm
sure that both sides learned a lot and I look for-
ward to working with them again in the future,"
said Lt. Cmdr. Shawn Blickley, Det Two's Officer
in Charge.


By Kevin Hansen, A.F.C.
PFM Financial Educator & Counselor
In the last few months, at least
three military service members,
where individually victims to a
current lending scam.
The scenarios of these service
members were basically the
same but with different lenders.
The service member applied for
a loan at his or her own bank
but was denied due to his or her
negative credit history.
Shortly afterwards each ser-
vice member was contacted by
a different lender located in the
U.S. Midwest and offered an
application for a greater loan
amount ($8,000-$10,000) with
very attractive loan terms.
Each member completed and
promptly returned the applica-
tion to the lender. Each service
member was contacted by the
lender and informed that based
on his or her credit history a
deposit of $600-$800 would
be required for each to receive
their loan.
Each member was instructed


to obtain a money gram and
send their deposit to a number
in Canada. After the deposit was
received the service members
where to receive their loan no
later than the next working day.
Long story short, none of the
service members received their
loan. After contacting the lender
to inquire about their loan, it
was discovered the lender was
not to be found.
All three service members
were provided information and
materials to file a complaint to
the local State Attorney's office.
How can we prevent this from
happening in the future?
First of all, if your own bank
denies your application for a
small loan it's mostly due insuf-
ficient credit history or poor
credit history from your credit
report. Both of the civilian lend-
ers on Naval Station Mayport
have excellent opportunities
for young service members to
establish their credit.
Second, if you don't have a
very good credit history result-


ing from continually making
late payments no payments,
there is still hope. By starting to
"pay as agreed," over time your
credit history and credit scores
will improve and so will your
ability to obtain the desired loan
at a fare interest rate.
Other issues that can prevent
anyone from obtaining a loan
can be inaccurate information
in your credit reports. Did you
know that almost 70 percent of
Americans have some inaccu-
rate information in their credit
that can reduce a credit score?
It's highly recommended
that everyone should view their
credit report from Experian,
Equifax, and Trans Union annu-
ally. The best place to view your
credit reports for free is www.
annualcreditreport.com.
For more free and confiden-
tial assistance with consumer
awareness and credit report
concerns, visit the professionals

Center or call 270-6600.

To honor the military and provide a lit-

tary members and veterans with military
ID for each show in the 2009 Def Leppard

Poison and Cheap Trick also will perform

"Def Leppard's involvement came
through a desire to give something back,
and what better way to honor these heroes
than with a night of music?" said Rick
Allen, Def Leppard's drummer and Raven
Drum Foundation founder. "We wanted to
thank these heroes in a meaningful way for
their service."
The summer tour kicked off in
Camden, N.J., June 23 and is scheduled
to run through Sept. 12, with concerts in

"To date, there have been nine U.S.

Raven Drum Foundation. "Approximately
100 tickets have been given to military fam-
ilies and veterans for these shows. There
are approximately 100 tickets for each of
the remaining 33 shows. Nearly half have
already been claimed."
Military personnel and veterans with a

Tickets are available on a first-come,

The Salute America's Heroes troop-sup-

"Music is just one of the tools we use
to promote healing to serve, educate and
empower veterans and people in crisis
through the power of the drum," Allen said.
"It is so exciting to have my band, fam-
ily and so many others contributing to this
effort. I thank everyone involved, especially
the veterans."
Buzza said the band and the foundation
want to brighten some lives.
"We wanted to offer an evening of pure

Truman Fires Missiles. Certifies Air Defenses


By MCSN David Finley
Truman Public. i"
The Nimitz-class aircraft
carrier USS Harry S. Truman
(CVN 75) successfully com-
pleted a NATO Sea Sparrow
Missile exercise at sea July 15
to certify that the ship's missile
system is sufficiently capable
of warding off certain types of
threats.
Fire Controlman 1st Class
(SW) Harold Vernon said the
exercise included two parts: the
first being to hit an air target
and the other to hit a surface
target.
To simulate protecting the
ship from an aerial threat,
Sailors employed two drones,
which approached the ship in
a stream-raid flight pattern. On
board Truman a missile was
fired to intercept the drones, hit-
ting both targets.
Another missile was fired to
intercept a surface target the
size of a sail boat moving at 10
knots. The purpose was to test a
new camera sensor installed on
the NATO Sea Sparrow launch-
er.
The cameras are designed to
give improved range and the
ability to visually identify any
surface crafts in the area, said
Vernon.

From COMPASS
A program aims to help
spouses navigate the Navy will
hold a mentor training session,
followed by a basic course.
If you were about to go on
an extended journey to a for-
eign country, you would want to
do research and learn as much
as you could to make your trip
enjoyable and successful.
COMPASS is a standard-
ized Team-Mentoring pro-
gram developed by spouses for
spouses. COMPASS focuses on
spouses new to the Navy, how-
ever; all spouses are welcome.
COMPASS improves quality of


endured a lot of hard work and
preparation to ensure a success-
ful evolution.
"It took approximately 70
hours of preparation from four
NATO technicians and combat
systems (CS-7) division in sup-
port to get this program done,"
said Vernon. "They have been
preparing for this missile shoot
for the last month."
"Teamwork is essential,"
said Fire Controlman 2nd Class
(SW) Clifford Maass. "There
are certain steps in loading the
missiles that require at least
three people at a time. The
whole evolution takes six peo-
ple on deck to complete, and
each person is vital."
Safety was also an important
issue in the missile exercise.
"We all have our ammo han-
dling physical qualification, and
we have to get ammo handling
qualified, which gets done with
the ordnance handling offi-
cer," said Maass. "Once we are
all qualified, we actually go
to schools in Dam Neck, Va.,
to qualify ourselves on shore
before we are allowed to do this
on a ship.:
USS Harry S. Truman is
currently conducting work-up
evolutions in preparation for
deployment later this year. With
the recent completion of com-


life through education, enabling
spouses to understand, experi-
ence and meet the challenges of
the Navy lifestyle.
With this knowledge and real-
istic expectations, theirjourneys
can be successful and reward-
ing. Sessions are held at Naval
Station Mayport.
Mentors must have been
married to their Sailors for at
least three years, have taken the
COMPASS course, and willing
to be mentor trained.
Mentor Training will be held
July 28-30 from 5:30-9 p.m. in
Building 1, FFSC Conference
Room.Other volunteer positions
