USS Halyburton's marches through the Tower of London during the ritual of the Constable Dues. This is the first time that a non-Brilisl ship has ever participated in the


centuries-old ceremony in London, England
By Ensign Michael Hanna
USS Halyburton Public ',
USS Halyburton made a historic port
visit to London, England July 18 when it
became the first non-British ship to par-
ticipate in the Constable's Dues ritual.
A ceremony first started in the 14th
century, Constable's Dues is a recre-
ation of a custom in which a ship had
to unload a portion of its cargo for the
country's soverign to enter the city,
according to BBC. Halyburton made his-
tory by being the first non-British ship
to ever perform the Tower of London
ceremony.
Media and local onlookers greeted
Halyburton as she moored alongside
one of South Quays piers in the heart of
downtown London. Surrounded by sky-
scrapers, office buildings, and beautiful
apartment complexes, the crew was in
awe of their surroundings.
"This is such a surreal setting and
location to be moored, said Information
Technologist 2nd Class Charles
McKenzie. "I could not think of a better
end to such a successful deployment."
Thirty-one members of Halyburton's
crew, including members of HSL-46


Detachment 2 Grand Masters, made his-
tory by taking part in one of England's
oldest traditions, the Constable's Dues.
The ceremony began with the crew
being led to the Towers West Gate by
Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Mike
Huck; and Operations Officer, Lt. Cmdr.
Anthony Mortimer. The formation also
consisted of the Spar-party, made up by
Command Master Chief Mickey Riley;
Chief Operations Specialist Damien
Smith and Chief Sonar Technician
Surface Jeffrey Corpuz as they carried
Halyburton's dues, a keg of fine wine.
The crew was initially challenged
by one of the Towers Yeomen. Upon
being allowed entry, Halyburton's crew
marched through the Tower of London
to Tower Green accompanied by
Yeoman Warders and a drum corps. The
Tower of London ceremony culminated
in Huck offering the keg of wine to the
Tower's Constable, Sir Roger Wheeler.
Upon completion of the ceremony the
crew spent the rest of the day conversing
viewing the sites the Tower of London
had to offer including the Royal Jewels.

U.S. Fleet Forces Changes Command


By MC1 Amie Gonzales
Navy Public. Support Element-
East
Adm. John C. Harvey Jr.,
relieved Adm. Jonathan W.
Greenert as commander of U.S.
Fleet Forces Command during a
ceremony July 24 held onboard
USS Harry S Truman (CVN
75).
Guest speaker, Chief of
Naval Operations Adm. Gary
Roughead, said Sailors, their
families and Navy civilians
are among the most impor-
tant things at Fleet Forces
Command.
"This change of command is
great for our Sailors who are
with us today and who are serv-
ing around the world and for
their families, because these
are the types of leaders that
we need in our Navy," said
Roughead.
Greenert assumed command
of U.S. Fleet Forces Command
in October 2007. He led the


command with a strategic focus
on the new maritime strategy,
with an emphasis on individual
augmentee programs and poli-
cies. Greenert's next assignment
will be as the vice chief of naval
operations.
"Our motto is 'ready fleet,
global reach' and we have to
be global," said Greenert. "Our
maritime strategy says maritime
forces will be more dispersed;
it says junior Sailors will inter-
act more with our international
partners. So we have to build
the training and support to pre-
pare these future Sailors to do
exactly that and to be effective
at that."
Greenert also remarked on
the need to continue to improve
the individual augmentee pro-
gram, to ensure Sailors and
their families are given the
attention and treatment they
need when they leave and return
home.

Chaplain's Corner


There's a story about a
judge in a divorce case who
asked the husband: "Sir,
will you tell the court what
passed between you and
your wife during your big
argument that caused you
to seek this separation?"
"Sure. I'll tell you judge. It
was a rolling pin, six plates
and a frying pan!"
There is something dis-
turbingly true behind this
story. Many couples destroy
their marriage by engaging
in escalating, tension-pro-
ducing behaviors. Failing to
keep emotions under control
that can become destruc-
tive can easily become a bad
habit in any marriage. The
process of escalation is for
the most part progressive. It
starts with resentment that
turns into anger, abusive lan-
guage and then escalates to
rage and in some instances


Chaplain Joe Molina
CDS40 Staff Chaplain
manifests in emotional or
even physical abuse.
Yes, I know that living
with the average family can
sometimes be like working
in a fireworks factory. At
times nothing on earth can
exasperate, frustrate or even
destroy like family itself.
Yet, I truly believe that God
has given us our family and


its preservation is therefore a
sacred responsibility.
In this article I'd like to
fight for, not with the fam-
ily. I would also like to state
unconditionally that abuse,
of any kind, is an unaccept-
able response in the family.
The victim of abuse has a
moral and sometimes legal
right to seek protection and
hold the perpetrator account-
able. I believe that the
words "abuse" and "family"
are incompatible. However,
we find that domestic vio-
lence is alarmingly high in
our society and that the abili-
ty of families to successfully
resolve conflict seems to be
on the decline.
None of us are exempt
from dealing with conflict in
our homes. The occasional
argument is expected even in
the best of all possible fami-
lies. But to allow feelings


and emotions to escalate into
uncontrollable rage is to be
prevented at all costs. The
stakes are simply too high.
Have we ever stopped to
think that the World Boxing
Association has rules for
fighting fair but that fami-
lies rarely do? Yes! Few
families fight fair. Yes! No
family member ever really
wins without somebody
losing. Yes! Every couple
needs rules and regulations
for fighting fairly. So, with-
out any further ado, here are
some ground rules for fight-
ing fair in the family.
FIRST and foremost,
CHECK-IN YOUR
WEAPONS AT THE
DOOR! In the days of
the Wild West men had to
check-in their weapons
before entering the saloon.
This prevented anyone from
getting trigger-happy.


Words are our weapons
and deadly words are deadly
weapons. How we use our
words can be a truly devas-
tating thing. Words impul-
sively and thoughtlessly
used will create a wedge in
the marriage and may even
become impossible to take
back. Those words will
undermine and seriously hurt
our partner. Remember that
escalation typically begins
with improper words. We
can allow those improper
words to become profane
and abusive. Venomous
words will attack the digni-
ty of the spouse. Once we
resort to rage and profanity
we are announcing our igno-
rance.
We check-in our weap-
ons at the door by keeping
our language clean and con-
trolled and engage in a pro-
cess of dialogue. This takes


personal discipline and a
respect for the spouse's dig-
nity. The goal is to speak the
truth in love.
By all means, rest assured
that in our midst and within
our reach we have tremen-
dous resources to preempt
serious escalation of conflict
in the family. Our gifted
family counselors at FLEET
family services and your
chaplains are unconditional-
ly ready and eager to assist.
Take advantage of the many
fine programs offered for the
well being of our marriages
such as CREDO Marriage
Enrichment Retreats and
Marriage PREP. Information
on these programs is avail-
able at the Naval Air Station
Jacksonville Chapel Center
(904) 542-3051.


Homefront in Focus


By Beth Wilson
Military Spouse Contributor
The moratorium on perma-
nent change of station (PCS)
moves has been lifted. This
means many Navy families are
scrambling to coordinate the
move to their new duty station.
There is much to do to arrange
a move but one piece of the
process has become a bit easi-
er. In February 2009 the DoD
launched a new website to coor-
dinate your move: www.move.
mil.
Army LTC William Carberry
(USTRANSCOM) says the
Defense Personal Property
System (DPS) is a system "that
will make life easier for our
service members when they
are relocated...It's all about
improving quality of life." The
new system improves the pro-


cess for service members as
well as the civilians that man-
age the household goods move-
ment process. The new system
will provide:
-Full replacement value pro-
tection
-Direct communication and
claims settlement between cus-
tomers and transportation ser-
vice providers
-Simplified claims process
-Web-based pre-move coun-
seling support
-24/7 self counseling
-Move initiation and status
tracking on-line.
Throughout the move process
you can talk to the carrier to
arrange packing and moving.
You can communicate with the
carrier throughout the move
process to track your shipment.
Perhaps the biggest change is


unseen. Move carrier contracts
are no longer awarded to the
lowest bidder but to the most
qualified.
Move.mil provides links to
additional resources and an
extensive FAQ (frequently
asked questions) section to
setup your move. While the site
is user friendly and streamlined
your local Fleet and Family
Support Center (FFSC) has
checklists and classes to help
you arrange the other aspects of
your move.
Two other websites mak-
ing military moves a bit more
smooth for military and their
families are www.military-
homefront.dod.mil is a fabu-
lous site also provided by the
DoD. This site is not a 'move
site' but a 'military life' site
with specific information about


military life, local installations,
resources, programs and much
more for military and their fam-
ilies. Scroll down the page to
find the "Plan My Move" link
on the left margin. This will
launch a step-by-step guide to
planning your next successful,
smooth move including a move
calendar to help you prepare
and successfully navigate the
move process. The site offers
'Moving 101', an outline of
the things you need to know
to effectively plan and execute
your move.
MilitaryHomefront.dod. mil
also contains information about
your new installation that will
help you become familiar with
the area and the installation
long before you arrive. This is a
great resource for you.
The biggest challenge of


moving can be housing. (Did I
just hear you groan?)
Have you checked out the
DoD's new site to assist mili-
tary in all aspects of the hous-
ing challenge. Whether you are
need to rent or sell the house
you currently own or look-
ing for housing at your new
installation start at www.ahrn.
com. AHRN.com is the DoD's
Automated Housing Referral
Network.
On this site you can post your
current home for sale or rent
(for free for military) as well as
look for temporary and perma-
nent lodging at your new duty
station. The site provides infor-
mation about prospective com-
munities.
You will develop a personal
profile and the site will pro-
vide information on units avail-


able in your price/BAH range,
type of unit and more. The site
includes military housing as
well as civilian properties most
of which have been inspected.
This site offers a measure of
security and peace of mind as
they are reviewed by the local
housing office. And if you have
questions live chat is available
24/7.
Moving is a part of the mili-
tary experience but these three
websites improve the process
and thereby improve our lives.
Let me know what you think
about these resources.

Fed Housing



Assistance Is



Available Now


By Lt.j.g. Patrick Jackson
RLSO SE
There is an old cliche that
"when the going gets tough,
the tough get going." Well
times certainly are tough, and
it almost goes without saying
that there is no one tougher than
then the members of the United
States military. However, many
of our fellow service mem-
bers are unable to "get going"
with their lives due to the poor
economy and the collapse of
the housing bubble. Imagine
the plight of John Q. Sailor who
bought a new home several
years ago while home values
were still high. Now his orders
are up and it's time to PCS
somewhere new, but he is stuck
in his current home. Facing the
very real possibility of having
to sell his home at a significant
loss, he is left to choose the less
horrible of two lousy options:
start making two mortgages, or
a mortgage and a rent payment,
each month; or sell his home
and lose thousands of dollars in
the process. What is he to do?
Fortunately for John Q.
Sailor, the federal government
is deeply committed to pro-
tecting service members and
assisting them during this eco-
nomic crisis. President Obama
recently signed the "American
Recovery and Reinvestment
Act of 2009," which includes
key provisions that could have a
dramatic effect on service mem-
bers dealing with the decline
in the housing market. In par-
ticular, Section 1001 of the
Act updates and expands upon
the Department of Defense
Homeowners Assistance
Program (HAP).
HAP was originally designed
to help service members whose
home values were negatively
affected by the closure of near-
by military installations. After
making a reasonable effort to
sell their home, individuals thus
affected could be reimbursed
by the government for part of
the lost value of their home.
First, an eligible person could
be compensated for the differ-
ence between ninety-five (95)
percent of the old value of the
home, and the current sale or
ooo


appraisal value. Second, an
eligible person could instead
choose to sell the property
directly to the government for
up to seventy-five (75) percent
of the old fair market value of
their home, or the current total
amount of existing mortgages,
whichever is greater.
"HAP-Plus," as the expanded
program has come to be called,
broadens eligibility for relief.
Guidelines for implementa-
tion are still under review, but
at least four basic requirements
will have to be met before relief
under the new law is possible.
They are:
The property involved is the
current principal residence of
the service member;
The property was purchased
by the service member prior to
July 1, 2006;
The service member was
"permanently reassigned" on
orders "to a duty station or
home port outside a 50-mile
radius" of the prior base or
installation; and
The qualifying property was
sold by the owner between July
1, 2006 and September 30,
2012 (or potentially some ear-
lier date);
Although the DoD is still in
the process of finalizing pol-
icy and regulations for HAP-
Plus, military members who
believe they may be eligible
can start the application pro-
cess. Applications and addi-
tional information for the
Homeowners Assistance
Program can be found online
at HYPERLINK "http://hap.
usace.army.mil/homepage.
html" http://hap.usace.army.mil/
homepage.html. If you intend
to apply, please be patient while
the program becomes opera-
tional, and your application is
processed.

tions your local legal assistance
offices can be reached as fol-
lows: Jacksonville, Florida

U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command
Public. ;
The Secretary of the
Inter-American Naval
Telecommunications Network
(IANTN), part of U.S. Naval
Forces Southern Command
(NAVSO), hosted the 7th
Annual Inter American
Naval Telecommunications
Conference Jul. 13 17 at
Naval Station Mayport.
This year's bi-annual confer-
ence brought 11 representatives
from participating countries
and one observer from Central
and South America, the United
States, and Canada together to
discuss the future of commu-
nications and interoperability
for navies throughout the U.S.
Southern Command area of
focus.
The Inter-American Naval
Telecommunications Network
(IANTN) is a secure commu-


nication system for navies in
Latin America. Nations cur-
rently in the network are:
Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil,
Chile, Colombia, Dominican
Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala,
Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua,
Panama, Paraguay, Peru, United
States, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
Representatives from Argentina,
Brazil, Chile, Colombia,
Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, United
States, and Uruguay were rep-
resented at the conference,
as well representatives from
the Inter-American Defense
Board (IADB) and Sistema de
Cooperaci6n entire las Fuerzas
Areas Americans (SICOFAA)
and observers from Canada.
The conference is a forum
to discuss IANTN status and
future goals
"The work we do together in
this region would not be pos-
sible without constant com-
munication and close coordi-
nation," said NAVSO and U.S.


Fourth Fleet Commander Rear
Adm. Vic Guillory. "This con-
ference is about ideas, ideas on
how we can reach the next level
of communications integration
and how we can partner with
industry to achieve our goals.
Your job this week is to discuss
those ideas and develop ways to
implement strategies to improve
interoperability."
One of the topics for this
conference was discussion
of the newly implement-
ed communication system,
Combined Enterprise Regional
Information Exchange System
(CENTRIXS).
"The principal topic of this
Conference is starting to use the
IANTN in tactical and opera-
tional levels for Command
and Control in the land and
sea" said Lt. Cmdr. Carlos
Schavinsky from Argentine
Navy, IANTN Deputy Secretary
and Director of the Conference.
Real time communication


is a significant improvement
over the previous system which
required the message origina-
tor to go through the United
States, who then relayed the
message to the recipient coun-
try. The recent implementation
of CENTRIXS over the past
year and a half significantly
improved the speed of commu-
nication in the region.
"CENTRIXS is really about
operational and tactical interop-
erability. The upgrade of the
network last year now puts
that in reach for the American
navies operating at sea. For
the first time we now have a
network capable of providing
secure, real time command and
control of forces afloat and the
ability for our partner navies to
collaborate with us in planning
and execution of real world mil-
itary operations. said Cmdr.
Dave Wirth, IANTN Secretary.
Guillory told the assembled
delegates that, "The next step


is to expand these successes by
enabling the member countries
to make their own investments
in IANTN, taking advantage of
the latest Internet technologies,
to push the network out to ships
at sea and command and opera-
tions centers ashore using archi-
tectures and equipment that ful-
fill the tactical and operational
needs of the individual navies
while meeting the security
expectations of all of the mem-
bers." To enable Guillory's
vision, the Jacksonville, Fla.
chapter of the Armed Forces
Communications Electronics
Association (AFCEA) co-host-
ed an "Industry Day" where
several communications tech-
nology companies demonstrated
state of the art technologies for
affordably and securely provid-
ing Internet technology to ships
at sea.
Throughout the conference,
regional representatives had the
opportunity to interact on a per-


sonal basis, providing contin-
ued emphasis on the coordina-
tion and cooperation required
to support maritime security in
Latin America.

Gettysburg

By Lt. Dennis Panos
USS Gettysburg PAO
USS Gettysburg (CG-64)
returned to its homeport at
Naval Station Mayport July
28 after a nearly six-month
deployment with Dwight D.
Eisenhower Carrier Strike
Group in support of operations
in the Gulf of Aden, Arabian
Gulf, and Operation Enduring
Freedom.
Gettysburg, with Helicopter
Squadron Light 46 Detachment
9 embarked, departed Mayport
Feb. 21 and used the trans-
Atlantic crossing to conduct
training and hone skills for any
contingency.
Shortly after leaving their
first port visit in Civitavecchia,
Italy, Gettysburg was tasked
to join Combined Task Force : i
151 (CTF 151) in Gulf of -i
Aden (GOA) and Horn of
Africa (HOA) as part of an
International Counter Piracy
Naval Coalition.
Immediately upon attach-
ing to CTF 151 on March 20
and entering the International
Recognized Transit Corridor
(IRTC), in the Gulf of Aden,
Gettysburg received distress
calls from merchant traffic
of a suspected pirate vessel.
Gettysburg responded to their
first of many counter piracy
events in the Gulf of Aden with
a full ship effort that was the
hallmark of their 2009 deploy-
ment.
During counter piracy
events, Gettysburg coordi-
nated many activities simul- Sailors from USS Gett

mother ship. With the overwhelm-
ing presence of force shown by the
Gettysburg and airborne SH-60,
the suspected pirates surrendered
immediately. The VBSS team
boarded and quickly apprehend-
ed 17 suspected pirates who were
actively patrolling the GOA with a
cache of weapons. The capture of
17 suspected pirates is the largest
capture to date and made a large
impact upon increasing the safety
of transit through the GOA.
After nearly a month on board,
Gettysburg transferred the suspect-
ed pirates to the Kenyan Justice
system in Mombassa, Kenya for
prosecution in the largest suspected
pirate transfer Kenya has accepted.
The Gettysburg team success-
fully interdicted multiple suspected
pirate vessels, confiscated more
than $1 million in pirate equipment,
including various guns and weap-
ons (RPGs) as well as several pirate
ships and skiffs. The crew appre-
hended 38 suspected pirates, and
captured the first ever mother ship.
Gettysburg continued in the GOA
as the CTF 151 flag ship until the

June 28 in Djibouti, Djibouti when

During the deployment
Gettysburg visited Civitavecchia,
Italy, Muscat, Oman, Bahrain,
Victoria, Seychelles, and Santander,
Spain and pulled in to Mombassa,
Kenya and Djibouti, Djibouti as
working ports.
These port visits provided
Gettysburg the opportunity to
see unique, historic places and to

hosted diplomatic receptions to
further build international rela-

New SOUTHCOM


Commander Makes


First Visit 1
By MC1(SW) Holly Boynton
U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command, U.S. Fourth Fleet
Publhc,..
Commander, U.S. Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM) Gen. Douglas Fraser made
his first visit to U.S. Naval Forces Southern
Command and U.S. Fourth Fleet headquarters
July 14.
Fraser met with Commander, U.S. Naval
Forces Southern Command (NAVSO) and U.S.
4th Fleet, Rear Adm. Vic Guillory and received
a tour and briefs from his Naval component
command. During his visit, Fraser thanked the
NAVSO and 4t Fleet staff for their hard work in
the SOUTHCOM area of focus.
"This is a terrific opportunity to showcase our
operations and successes at NAVSO and 4th Fleet
for our new boss, Gen. Fraser," said Guillory. "As
SOUTHCOM Naval component, NAVSO's mis-
sion and deployments align with SOUTHCOM's
security, stability and partnering goals. I'm look-
ing forward to expanding our partnering, humani-
tarian and counter illicit trafficking operations in
this dynamic and important region under Gen.
Fraser's direction and guidance."
During his visit, Fraser met with NAVSO's
Foreign Liaison Officers from Chile, Colombia,
Ecuador, and Peru. NAVSO has liaison officers
from Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru
on staff who act as subject-matter experts for
their respective navies and provide feedback and
guidance critical to the success of in NAVSO's
many exercises and operations with our partner
nations in the area of focus.
"Your role as liaisons is very important for
your navies as well as our Navy," said Fraser.


o 4th Fleet
"We can't do this as individuals; we have to
cooperate together to address the problems that
affect all of us here in the Western Hemisphere.
Thank you on behalf of Southern Command for
what you're doing and I look forward to the
opportunity to visit each of your countries."
Fraser also visited Helicopter Maritime Strike
Wing, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, received a briefing on
the unmanned aerial aircraft MQ-8B Fire Scout,
toured USS Mclnemey (FFG 8) and had a round-
table discussion with senior NAVSO/4th Fleet
staff members.
Fourth Fleet celebrated its first year anniver-
sary July 12. Fourth Fleet was re-established
in 2008 in recognition of the importance of the
SOUTHCOM area of focus which includes the
Caribbean, Central and South America and sur-
rounding waters.
Fourth Fleet is the numbered fleet assigned
to U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command
(NAVSO), exercising operational control of
assigned forces. Fourth Fleet conducts the full
spectrum of Maritime Security Operations (MSO)
in support of U.S. objectives and security coop-
eration activities that promote coalition building
and deter aggression.
As the Navy component command of
SOUTHCOM, NAVSO's mission is to direct U.S.
Naval forces operating in the Caribbean, Central
and South American regions and interact with
partner nation navies within the maritime envi-
ronment.
Various operations include counter-illicit traf-
ficking, Theater Security Cooperation, military-
to-military interaction and bilateral and multina-
tional training.


4th Fleet Visits Comfort


By Airman 1st Class Benja-
min Stratton
Fourth Fleet
Rear Adm. Victor Guillory,
Commander, U.S. 4th Fleet,
visited hospital ship USNS
Comfort (T-AH 20) and the
Continuing Promise 2009
(CP09) teams at their respective
clinic July 8 here.
"I'm impressed by the work
you have done," said Guillory.
"Your efforts here are toward
the common purpose of
working with our partners to
improve interoperability and to
helping people in the region.
Continuing Promise reflects our
goal to working cooperatively
with our neighbors and part-
ners, particularly in this region,
to build partner capacity and
trust."
Guillory toured Comfort and
many of the medical, dental and
engineering sites ashore as part
of the CP09 mission.
CP09 combines U.S. military
and interagency personnel, non-
governmental organizations,
civil service mariners, academic
and partner nations to provide
medical, dental, veterinary, edu-
cational and engineering servic-
es afloat and ashore alongside
host nation personnel.
CP09 provides an opportunity
not only to provide humanitar-
ian assistance but also to learn
from host nation partners and
train a diverse team of experts


who are able to respond to a
regional crisis.
Guillory thanked all the
non-governmental organiza-
tions (NGOs) and interna-
tional partners for their con-
tributions to the mission, to
include members from Antigua,
Brazil, Canada, the Dominican
Republic, El Salvador, the
Netherlands, Nicaragua, and
Panama as well as the U.S.
Public Health Service, Project
Hope, Latter Day Saints
Charities and students and vol-
unteers from the University
of California, San Diego Pre-
Dental Society.
"This has quite possibly
been the biggest humanitar-
ian assistance mission for us
and especially for our NGOs,"
said Capt. James J. Ware, com-
manding officer of the hospi-
tal onboard Comfort. "We're
changing lives and emotions
every day. You can see the
smiles on the kids' faces and
know we're making a differ-
ence."
"As the name Continuing
Promise indicates, 4th Fleet's
commitment to this mission
and to partnership building in
the region is continuous," said
Guillory. "We are in the initial
planning stages for Continuing
Promise 2010 and I look for-
ward to building on what you
are doing here today for many
years to come."


Comfort is scheduled to be
in Nicaragua, the final stop of
the CP09 mission, through July
14. The ship has partnered with
host nation healthcare provid-
ers to treat more than 80,000
patients in the seven coun-
tries of the mission. These
include: Antigua and Barbuda,
Colombia, the Dominican
Republic, El Salvador, Haiti
and Panama.

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

About The Kids?, FFSC
Children who witness fam-
ily violence are often forgot-
ten as the unintended victims.
A wide range of child adjust-
ment problems has been found
to be associated with exposure
to domestic violence. Parent's
need to see and understand the
effects of domestic violence
on children as encompassing
behavior, emotion, development
and socialization. Parents need
to understand that there is an
intergenerational cycle of vio-
lence and they may be creat-
ing a legacy for their child of
learned violent behavior. The
purpose of this program is not
to shame parents for events
that have already happen, but
to instill hope that things can
change. The knowledge that the
violence, which many parents
incorrectly believe is unseen
by their children, is negative-
ly impacting their children's
growth and development and
may provide an additional moti-
vator for ending the violence
and seeking intervention.

USS Doyle Sailors Renovate Chilean School


By MC3(SW) Patrick
Grieco
Southern Seas Public. ;,
Sailors from Destroyer
Squadron (DESRON) 40
and guided-missile frigate
USS Doyle (FFG 39) con-
ducted a community relations
(COMREL) project July 10,
at the Arturo Prat School in
Valparaiso, Chile.
"This is a good way to get
involved with the commu-
nity and see the culture," said
Interior Communications
Technician 2nd Class (SW)
Justin Myers, assigned to
Doyle's Combat Systems
department. "It shows we are
willing to come in and get our
hands dirty to help out the local
community."
Myers said he volunteered
for the COMREL because he
enjoys helping people and he
feels it gives him a firsthand
look at the lives of the local
community.
"It's good to interact with the
children and see how they live,"
said Myers. "You not only
get to help them out, but you
step into their shoes for a little
while, and I think it makes you
understand the culture a little
better."
Sailors renovated the schools
grounds by conducting several
painting jobs and offering the
children free hair cuts. Most of
the Sailors agreed it was time
well spent and bonds were
formed between the nations.
"I think it brings us closer
to our counterparts in these far
away lands," said Storekeeper
1st Class (SW) William Snyder,
assigned to Doyle's Supply
Department. "Everybody had a
great time with us, and we had

Fleet area of responsibility supporting the U.S. Southern Command exercise Southern Seas 2009,

a wonderful time with them.
It's all about helping each other
out."
Snyder said by inviting the
U.S. Sailors to renovate the
grounds, the Chileans displayed
their trust and partnership with
the United States. Over the past
few months, Doyle, and other
ships, conducted various train-
ing exercises together designed
to strengthen interoperability.
After lunch and finishing up
their work, the Sailors took a
few minutes to interact with the


school children by playing a
round of soccer.
"All I get is good vibes here,"
said Snyder. "This was a great
opportunity to come out and
meet the public and see the
kids."
Myers said he also enjoyed
spending time with the children
and feels a sense of self-satis-
faction from it.
Doyle is on a six-month
deployment to Latin America
and the Caribbean as part of
Southern Seas 2009 in support


of U.S. Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM)'s Partnership of
the Americas strategy.
Southern Seas is an annual
deployment that focuses on
conducting exercises, military
to military engagements, and
theater security cooperation
engagements to enhance rela-
tionships with partner nations
in the Region. This year's
deployment includes Doyle and
USS Kauffman (FFG 59), and
is executed by DESRON 40 as
Commander, Task Group 40.0.


The Greenest Fleet In Southeast


By Sue Brink
NAVFAC Southeast Publhc.
Officer
Naval Facilities Engineering
Command (NAVFAC)
Southeast started to replace
25 percent of its Federal Fleet
Vehicles July 6 with hybrids
funded by the American
Reinvestment and Recovery
Act (ARRA). The first vehicle,
a Chevrolet Hybrid Malibu, will
be assigned to the "C" pool as
VIP or will replace an older "B"
Pool vehicle on board Naval Air
Station Jacksonville.
Government Services
Administration (GSA) received
$300 million in ARRA funds to
replace agency owned vehicles
with new, more fuel efficient
vehicles. NAVFAC Southeast
will utilize approximately $5
million for fleet vehicle replace-
ment, throughout the southeast.
The vehicles will arrive in
two phases.
"GSA approved replacement
of 58 light fleet vehicles in the
first phase and 201 assets in
the second phase," said John
Joneikis, NAVFAC Southeast
Base Support Vehicles and
Equipment product line coordi-
nator.
The first phase hybrid sedans
and SUVs have started to arrive
while all other vehicles are cur-
rently in production and expect-
ed delivery will begin toward
the end of July.


The new vehicles are all con-
sidered 'green' vehicles and
meet Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) requirements for
28 miles per gallon (mpg) or
better and less green house gas
emissions.
"We will have the most
green' fleet in the Navy,"
remarked Jeff Killian, NAVFAC
Southeast Public Works
Business Line coordinator.
The addition of the new
'green' vehicles to the Navy
fleet will help the Navy in
achieving better fuel economy,
reduced petroleum consumption
and contribute to a cleaner envi-
ronment through green house
gas emission reductions.
This supports the President's
focus on energy conserva-
tion and energy independence.
Executive Order 14323 dated
January 24, 2007 puts forward
the direction "Strengthening
Federal Environmental,
Energy, and Transportation
Management."
Requirements include
improving energy efficien-
cy, reducing energy intensity,
reducing water consumption
intensity and acquiring goods
and services using sustainable
environmental practices (ener-
gy-efficient, water-efficient and
recycled-content products), etc.
"We are following the new
policy statement that requires
that commands take prescrip-

tive actions to adhere to the
Navy's Energy Consumption
Guidelines," said Killian.
"Our Public Works Officers
are working directly with the
Installation Commanding
Officers (ICOs) to support
them as they implement the
President's newly published
guidelines on energy conserva-
tion."
The Navy is to receive close
to 1,000 Alternative Fuel
Vehicles (AFV) and hybrid
vehicles through GSA's ARRA
stimulus funding to replace

Units


Navy-owned assets.
Existing Navy-owned assets
will be traded for the new vehi-
cles at designated exchange
centers, the old vehicles will
be auctioned off by GSA and
the funding will be used to pur-
chase a third round of vehicles
in the July/August timeframe.
ARRA projects are intended
to modernize Navy and Marine
Corps shore infrastructure,
enhance America's energy inde-
pendence and sustain a steady
and robust Maritime Force for
decades.

Vicksburg Receives


Education From FFSC


By Ensign Marc Schron
USS Vicksburg Public,. ; Officer
Returning from deployment
can be a period of intense emo-
tions, and the superb profes-
sionals at Fleet and Family
Support Center (FFSC) know
exactly what a homeward-
bound crew needs.
Just after transiting the Straits
of Gibraltar, Susan Rucker
and Louis Atteberry of FFSC
were transported by helicopter
from USNS Big Horn (T-AO
198) to Vicksburg to begin a
week of briefs. Topics rang-
ing from Reunion & Intimacy,
Returning to Children, New
Parents of Infants, Car Buying,
Buyer Beware, Singles
Homeward Bound, Stress &
Anger Management, Domestic
Violence Prevention, Returning
from Hazardous Duty, and
Managing Life's Challenges
were covered with the crew for
multiple periods each day.
Many of the crew did not


Shoreline

Fishing

Rules On

Aug. 1
From Florida Fish and i Conser-
vation Commission
Florida's new shoreline fish-
ing license requirement takes
effect Aug. 1.
Resident anglers who fish for
saltwater species from shore
or a structure affixed to shore
must have a $9 shoreline fish-
ing license or a $17 regular salt-
water fishing license.
Nonresident anglers need
a regular nonresident saltwa-
ter fishing license to fish from
shore or from a vessel. Short-
term and annual nonresident
fishing licenses cost between
$17 and $47.
Additional fees may apply to
all fishing licenses, depending
on where an angler purchases
the license.
The shoreline requirement
allows exemptions for resident
anglers who fish in their home
county, using live or natural
bait, on a line or pole without
a line-retrieval mechanism.
This exemption does not apply
to anglers who use nets, traps,
gigs, spears or who gather sea-
food by hand or any type of
gear other than hook and line.
Other exemptions apply for
anglers who qualify for tem-
porary cash assistance, food
stamps or Medicaid. Also, resi-
dent anglers who are age 65 or
older and children under age
16 may fish without a license.
Active-duty military person-
nel may fish without a license
while home on leave in Florida.
Licensed fishing piers have
licenses that cover everyone
who fishes from them.
The FWC suggests the $17
regular saltwater fishing license
may be the best option for most
resident anglers unless they are
certain they will fish only from
shore or a structure affixed to
shore all year.
By creating the shoreline
fishing license, the Florida
Legislature arranged for Florida
anglers to be exempt from a
more expensive federal angler
registration requirement that
will take effect in 2011.
The Military Gold
Sportsman's License is avail-
able to active duty and retired
military Florida residents. The
cost is $20 for $83.50 worth
of license and permit fees. The
license covers hunting, fresh-
water and saltwater fishing, and
a variety of associated permits.
The Military Gold
Sportsman's License is avail-
able at Florida Tax Collector
Offices only. As proof of eli-
gibility, applicants must pres-
ent a current military ID card,
and either orders showing a cur-
rent assignment to Florida or a
Florida driver license.
More information about
fishing license requirements
is available at MyFWC.com.

"Media Resources." For infor-
mation about fishing on board

simply listen to the briefs, but
stayed to engage the represen-
tatives one-on-one and garner
more in-depth knowledge on
their topics of choice.
"I'm going to buy a new
car when we get home, and
the Fleet & Family Services
staff helped me understand a
lot of key details to make my
money go the furthest," said
Gas Turbine System Technician
(Mechanical) (SW) Clarence
McAdory.


A veteran of multiple deploy-
ments, Operations Specialist
1st Class (SW/AW) Robert
Laird commented, "Every time
we come home is unique, and
sometimes even the best of us
need small reminders to let go
of work for a while and enjoy
our families."
From Vicksburg, the two
counselors flew to USS
Halyburton (FFG 40) on July
26 to continue their training
sessions.

Navy Lab To Test For


H1N1 Swine Flu Virus


By Deborah Kallgren and
MC2 (AW/SW) William
Heimbuch
Navy Environmental and Preventive
Medicine
Navy Environmental and
Preventive Medicine Unit No. 2
will be the first Navy lab on the
East Coast to have the capabil-
ity to test human samples for
H1N1 (swine) influenza. It is
expected to begin confirmatory
testing by Aug. 1.
NEPMU-2 is a unit belong-
ing to Naval Medical Center
Portsmouth located at Norfolk
Naval Station. It supports Fleet
units and operational forces as
well as the 14 Navy Medicine
East hospitals by providing
FDA-approved confirmatory
testing for H1N1.
The lab's geographic area
of responsibility includes the
U.S. east of the Mississippi
River, Central America, South
America, Africa, Europe, the
Middle East. Two similar Navy
units handle the rest of the
world. NEPMU-2 augments
the Naval Health Research
Center in San Diego, state
health departments and the
Centers for Disease Control
labs in H1N1 testing.
By analyzing samples in
Norfolk without having to send
them on a time-consuming
journey to a lab outside of the
region, doctors will get results
quicker. This assists with get-
ting patients to the appropriate
treatment quicker and imple-
mentation of specific public
health measures to help contain
spread of disease.
"We are a military extension
of the CDC," said NEPMU-2's
Officer in Charge, Cmdr. Todd


Wagner. "We look out for the
overall public health and safe-
ty of our service members and
their dependents."
NEPMU-2 is in the final
phase of confirming the new
laboratory processes before
H1N1 analysis begins. The lab
and lab technicians are certified
and follow all federal laboratory
regulations to ensure personal
and public safety.
Analysts wear booties, lab
coats, masks, eye protection and
double gloves at all times when
running samples. The new test-
ing includes automated stations
which can detect DNA and
RNA unique to the H1N1 virus.
The lab currently has a
Biosafety Level 2+ classifica-
tion, which means its techni-
cians work with viruses and
bacteria that are communicable
and that immunization or antibi-
otic treatment is available.
NEPMU-2 will move into a
new building next year which
will house a Biosafety Level
3 lab, allowing a higher level
of surveillance and detection.
This will include the addition
of showers to maintain a safe
environment.
In addition to the techni-
cians at NEPMU-2, the unit
will cross-train lab techs from
NMCP's clinical lab to augment
staffing if a surge of samples
comes in. Initially, the lab will
have the maximum capacity to
test approximately 50 samples a
day and 300 samples per week.
After a patient's sample is
obtained, it is rushed to the lab.
That's where technicians will
quickly analyze it using their
new equipment to determine
if the patient has been infect-


ed by the H1N1 virus. This is
done by DNA and RNA extrac-
tion followed by utilizing
Polymerase Chain Reaction or
PCR technology. Once a sample
has been analyzed, NEPMU-2
will report the results back to
the patient's command, whether
it's afloat or ashore.
"We're going from longer
processing times to 48 to 72
hours," said Wagner. "This will
allow for a faster response time
and the appropriate treatment
and other personal and public
health measures to be started."
Depending on the diagnosis,
those measures might include
increased hand washing, wear-
ing a mask or isolating those
affected, if needed.
H1N1 testing is just one of
NEPMU-2's duties. The unit
will continue its primary mis-
sion to support the Navy and
U.S. Marine Corps with special-
ized preventive medicine and
occupational health expertise,
and advanced deployment med-
ical surveillance capabilities.
NEPMU-2 also serves as a
detection lab, providing chemi-
cal and biological agent detec-
tion and identification capabil-
ity to the war fighter. The unit
deploys its members on mis-
sions that include testing and
analyzing water, soil and air
quality to ensure Sailors and
Marines are working in a safe
environment.
"This is a great group and a
great team," said Lt. Douglas
Searles, a biochemist at
NEPMU-2. "If there were ever
a situation requiring public
health response, I would not
hesitate to go into a danger zone
with this team."

Former U.S. Navy Helos


Delivered To Argentina


By Cmdr. Victor Chen
Navy International Programs Office
Two former U.S. Navy
UH-3H helicopters were deliv-
ered to Argentina to become
part of that country's navy,
through the Navy International
Programs Office Foreign
Military Sales program and
Naval Air Systems Command.
Two helicopters were loaded
onto the amphibious dock land-
ing ship USS Oak Hill (LSD
51) that got underway June 3
for South America to take part
in U.S. 4th Fleet's Southern
Partnership Station and U.S.
Marine Corps Forces South


exercise Southern Exchange,
a multinational joint exercise
with several South American
countries, including Argentina.
The helicopters arrived at
Argentina's Puerto Belgrano
June 26.
The two UH-3H helicop-
ters are part of a package of
six, four of which will become
operational, while the other two
will be used for spare parts.
Naval Air Systems Command
arranged for the helicopters
to be pulled from storage and
refurbished through a commer-
cial contractor.


Navy International Programs
Office served as the liaison with
Argentina, and processed the
necessary paperwork to allow
the helicopters to be exported.
Navy International Programs
Office oversees the Navy's
Foreign Military Sales program,
as well as other programs that
foster global maritime relation-
ships and deliver military capa-
bility, while protecting critical
technology, to enhance interop-
erability with U.S. naval forces
in support of the Navy's mari-
time strategy and U.S. security
strategy.

From Department ofDefense
The secretary of the Navy and secretary of
the Army announced July 16 the names of the
first three Joint High Speed Vessels as Fortitude
(JHSV 1), Vigilant (JHSV 2) and Spearhead
(JHSV 3).
A cooperative effort between the Navy and the
Army, JHSVs will be used for fast intra-theater

and maintaining its ships following delivery.
JHSVs will be capable of transporting 700
short tons 1,200 nautical miles at an average
speed of 35 knots and can operate in shallow-
draft ports and waterways, interfacing with roll-
on/roll-off discharge facilities, and on/off-load-
ing a combat-loaded Abrams main battle tank


(M1A2). Other joint requirements include an
aviation flight deck to support day and night air
vehicle launch and recovery operations. JHSVs
will have airline style seating for 312 embarked
forces and fixed berthing for 104 more.
Joint military combatant commanders will have
the flexibility to use JHSVs in a variety of roles
to include supporting overseas contingency oper-
ations, special operations forces, humanitarian
assistance and disaster relief and emerging joint
sea basing concepts.
Constructed by Austal USA in Mobile, Ala., the
detail, design and construction contract covers 10
ships, five for the Army and five for the Navy.
Long lead time material options for the first three
ships have already been exercised. Construction
on the first JHSV will begin following a success-
ful production readiness review (PRR), currently
scheduled for fall 2009. The JHSV PRR will be a
review of design maturity, availability of materi-
als and components, and the shipbuilder's readi-
ness to successfully start fabrication.
