DoD, VA Work To
Create Lifetime
Electronic Records

By Navy Lt. Jennifer Cragg
Special to American Forces Press
Service
For servicemembers who
still remember hand-carrying
their medical records back
and forth to appointments,
the new virtual lifetime elec-
tronic record will help pre-
vent misplaced paperwork
and help providers maintain
and offer quality health care,
the acting director of the pro-
gram said.
President Barack
Obama, along with Defense
Secretary Robert M.
Gates and Veterans Affairs
Secretary Eric Shinseki,
announced April 9 that VA
and the Defense Department
have taken steps toward cre-
ating a joint virtual lifetime
electronic record, or VLER.
"The president's vision,
as he expressed that day,
will permit information vital
to health care, benefits and
services to be available
seamlessly to both depart-
ments from the moment a
servicemember enters the
military until the servicemem-
ber's or veteran's death,"
Navy Rear Adm. Gregory A.
Timberlake, acting director
of the Defense Department-
VA Interagency Program
Office, said yesterday in
a- -"DotMilDocs" interview
on Pentagon Web Radio.
The steps to create the
electronic record exchange
began a little more than a
year ago when the program
office was established as
the single point of account-
ability for the records in
response to Section 1635
of the National Defense
Authorization Act for fiscal
2008.
"VLER will serve as a
model for a nation, espe-
cially at this tumultuous time
of health care reform, and
is intended to be a lifetime,
personal record for use by
the servicemembers, their
families and service provid-
ers to ensure a seamless
continuum of care and ben-
efits," Timberlake said.
"The president challenged
the departments to work
together to define and build
a seamless system of inte-
gration with one simple goal:
when a servicemember sep-
arates from the military, he
or she will no longer have to
walk paper records from a
[Defense Department] duty
station to a local VA health
center," the admiral said.
"Their electronic records will
transition along with them

Seahawk Takes Place In History


Mayport SH-60B Part Of Naval Aviation Museum


By Lt.j.g.
Kevin Vannieuwenhoven
HSL-48PAO
The last flight of a Mayport-
based SH-60B "Seahawk" heli-
copter marked a historic mile-
stone in rotary wing aviation.
VENOM 500, assigned to the
"Vipers" of Helicopter Anti-
Submarine Squadron Light
(HSL) 48, recently concluded
a quarter-century of Naval
service when it landed in the
parking lot of the National
Naval Aviation Museum in
Pensacola, Fla.. Piloted by
Cmdr. Steve Banta, Capt. Carl
Bush, and Air Warfare Rescue
lt Class Matt Haydu, the air-
crew pulled off the helicopter's
engines, shut down its rotors,
and the cockpit grew dark one
last time. The next day, dur-
ing a brief morning ceremony,
the Naval Aviation Museum
unveiled VENOM 500 as the
first SH-60B "Seahawk" added
to its collection.
"This occasion is bit-
tersweet," said Banta, the
Commanding Officer of HSL-
48, to the crowd gathered in the
museum's atrium to witness the
ceremony. "Today we retire
VENOM 500 after 23 years of
dedicated and faithful service to
the United States Navy, but we
are thankful and honored that
our community will be repre-
sented in this great museum."
Banta was joined at the podi-
um by representatives from
the HSL helicopter community
and industry, including Rear
Adm. Gary Jones, Commander,
Naval Education and Training
Command; Bush, Commander,
Helicopter Maritime Strike
Wing U. S. Atlantic Fleet; and
retired Capt. Greg Hoffman,
Director of Navy Requirements
at the Sikorsky Aircraft
Corporation.
Jones commented that with
the current size and future
growth of the helicopter com-
munity it was only fitting that a
SH-60B "Seahawk" be included
in the museum along with the
icons and great aircraft of Naval
aviation. However, he remind-
ed the audience that throughout
the history of Navy aviation,
it was the people the avia-
tors and the mechanics that
made the aircraft come alive,

and remain today as the greatest
strength as a fighting force.
The retirement and museum
induction of VENOM 500 also
served as an important symbol
in the ongoing implementation
of the helicopter CONOPS,
as the new state-of-the-art
MH-60R and MH-60S aircraft
are gradually replacing the
aging fleet of helicopters cur-
rently in service.
Hoffman noted the great suc-
cess of the SH-60B aircraft pro-
gram, calling it a "fundamen-
tal game-changer" and that it
"exceeded the Navy's expecta-
tions, functionally, operation-
ally, and especially from a tacti-
cal standpoint."
As the Navy transitions to the
newer versions of the Seahawk,
with more advanced avionics
and combat systems, Hoffman
also issued the challenge that
the time is now to start thinking
about the requirements of the

HSL-48's VENOM 500 is the newest addition to the National Museum of Naval Aviation. The
SH-60B "Seahawk" helicopter is a permanent addition to the Pensacola, Fla., museum.


Mayport Inspector


Gets Gold STAR
From NAVFAC SE
Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast
Crane Inspector Danny Williams of Public Works Department
(PWD) Mayport was presented the Safety Through Awards and
Recognition (STAR) incentive program award July 29.
The STAR incentive program is intended to recognize indi-
viduals and groups that make significant contributions to the com-
mand's safety program. It recognizes effort above and beyond min-
imum performance specifically in a manner that reduces mishaps
and thereby contributes to current and future readiness.
Williams, on multiple occasions, recognized potential problems
and took action to prevent the opportunity for mishaps and pro-
tected the Navy's interest.
"Thanks to Danny's continued diligence and dedication, he
has protected the Navy's interest," commented Dr. David Folk,
NAVFAC Southeast safety and health manager. "It is an honor to
make Danny Williams the first recipient of the NAVFAC Southeast
STAR Award
Voluntarily, Williams provided an inspection of cranes and iden-
tified safety discrepancies which prompted the contractor to service
them before use. These findings have prompted further improve-
ments in the uses of the cranes on the site.
"Through Williams' continued diligence and dedication, he has
protected the Navy's assets and the safety of our Sailors," con-
cluded Folk.
It is through programs like this that continue to prove success
with NAVFAC Southeast having one of the best safety records.
Dedicated employees, such as Williams, provide NAVFAC custom-
ers with the highest level of trust and compassion in Safety.


Speicher Returns To Jax


-Photo by MC1 Leah Stiles
Members of a Navy honor guard carry the remains of Capt. Michael Scott Speicher to All Saints
Chapel at Naval Air Station Jacksonville in Jacksonville. Speicher was Alled when his F/A-18
Hornet was shot down over Anbar province, Iraq on the first day of offensive operations during
Desert Storm on Jan. 17, 1991. Thousands of people, both military and civilians, showed their respects
as the remains of the first casualty of Desert Storm were brought to NAS Jax after being found in Iraq after
18years. See morephotos and story on Page 3.

C O Column


Last week the world watched
as Captain Scott Speicher
returned home after more than
18 years with full military hon-
ors for the Jacksonville pilot
who we owe a tremendous
debt of gratitude for the sac-
rifice he and his family have
made for our nation and the
examples of strength they have
set for all of us. Speicher was
shot down flying a combat
mission in an F/A-18 Hornet
over west-central Iraq Jan. 17,
1991, during Operation Desert
Storm. The homecoming was
truly a somber yet historic
moment that will never be for-
gotten. Resolving the Speicher
case has been a matter of sig-
nificant priority to the Navy
and the Department of Defense,
and we will never give up look-
ing for a shipmate regardless
of how long or how difficult
that search may be. The City
of Jacksonville opened up
their hearts for a gracious and
honorable return for Captain
Speicher, and the support they
continue to give us never goes
unnoticed.
Have you had chow at the
galley recently? Our chow boss,


Capt. Aaron Bowman
CWO3 Martinez Miller has
implemented several new ini-
tiatives that will no doubt keep
you coming back for more. The
salad bar has also improved,
giving you more options. These
improvements are a direct result
of a survey the galley conduct-
ed this summer and the changes
will also improve the way you
get your food. This is your base,
and surveys are a good way to
gauge what you really want. We
take pride in the quality of life
we enjoy here, and if we can
make it better, I want to hear
about it.


We've had three storms to
watch this week and although
Claudette is now no longer a
threat, Ana and Bill are still out
there and keeping a consider-
able amount of our attention.
One last plea to make sure you
and you family are ready to get
out of town should we have a
major storm coming your way.
Remember that the ships will
sortie, the helos will be out of
here, and if it looks bad, I will
order the base to be vacated.
Now is the time to prepare by
having documents, cash, and
a plan ready. As I write this,
the afternoon weather pattern
is splattering all over the base.
Please be careful when driving
in the pouring rain, and pull off
safely if the visibility becomes
too bad. Your safety is my num-
ber one concern and each and
every one of you is vital to our
operations out here.
Speaking of safety, I've been
noticing a trend of children
riding bicycles, scooters, and
skateboards without helmets.
The base policy is that all those
activities require head protec-
tion. We don't need a senseless
death or serious injury. Please


ensure you and your children
are wearing proper safety gear.
Another thing I see is bicycle
helmets on someone's head but
not strapped now that is an
absolute brilliant way to try to
get around rules. If you want
to hear about my friend's son
who died on a skateboard a few
months ago from a head injury,
send me an email and I'll give
you all the details.
Last week I read an arti-
cle on the Navy Newsstand
about a recent conversa-
tion that MCPON Rick West
had with Sailors who were
assigned to the White House
Communications Agency on
board Naval Station Anacostia
about the importance of look-
ing out for shipmates who are
showing signs of stress. He said
that too often our Sailors aren't
going to seek help on their own
and he is right. West has been
speaking on the importance of
stress control all summer and
wants to break down the myth
that admitting to a problem is
a sign of weakness or can hurt
a Sailor's career. West will be
filming a video on operational
stress control which should hit


the fleet by the end of the sum-
mer. I encourage everyone to
keep a look out for your ship-
mates for signs of stress such
as cutting corners, irritability
or trouble sleeping. Talk to a
shipmate, friend, family mem-
ber or someone else you trust. If
you see the signs of more seri-
ous stress, get help immediately
from your chain of command,
chaplain or medical provider.
People see no problem in taking
their vehicle into a repair shop
to get fixed and all too often it's
overlooked that we sometimes
need fixed ourselves. We have
a host of programs at the Fleet
and Family Support center that
can help. They can be reached
at 270-6600. They are there for
you.
Been spending a lot of time
getting ready for this year's air
show. Remember to mark your
calendars for Nov. 6-8 for three
days of fun at the beach with
the Blue Angels and a host of
other performers. The list of
this years performers is the best
ever and we are still planning to
have the popular beach invasion
from an amphib off the coast.
Speaking of entertainment,


football season is here and the
Jaguars are once again provid-
ing great deals for the Navy
via the USO and MWR. The
USO has tickets for sale for
a very low price and there is
also the "Sailors Aweigh" pro-
gram, which provides free tick-
ets to children and families of
deployed sailors. MWR still has
some quality tickets available
for home games as well. I was
talking to the Jags today and
we are working on a few other
things for the season. More
to follow on that but I can tell
you that the relationship that
the Navy shares with its home-
town professional football team
is better than anywhere in the
nation.
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-
mant@navy.mil.


Chaplain's Corner


The doctor had some bad
news and good news for his
patient. "Sam" the doctor
said. "You have a serious ail-
ment. You need an operation
right away." Sam got a bit
pale. He turned to his doctor
and asked, "Is it that serious?"
"Yes," said the doc. "Five out
of six who undergo this opera-
tion die. But you have noth-
ing to worry about." "Why not
doctor?" Asked Sam. "Well
Sam, my last five patients have
died. So, I know you're going
to make it."
Well, I don't know what level
of reassurance that gave to the
patient, but I think you'll agree
that when it comes to matters
of life and death we know we
are dealing with serious busi-
ness. Regardless of how we
may try to make light of it
through humorous anecdotes,


Chaplain Joe Molina
CDS40 Staff Chaplain
the serious matter of life and
death (and in some cases life or
death) is sure to catch our atten-
tion. Life and death address
existence itself. "To be or not
to be" is an issue of ultimate
importance. There are no subtle
definitions involved. You don't


have to worry about what the
definition of "is" is, that is, you
either are or are not. "Whatever
'is,' is." There is no statement
in secular life more worthy of
contemplation.
We can hardly make a sen-
tence in the English language
without using some form of
the verb "to be." The idea of
"being" itself is filled with sig-
nificance and potential. This is
because having "being" means
that we have the ability to rea-
son, to think and solve prob-
lems. We are also relational in
our being, having the ability to
give and receive real love. In
addition we possess a moral
consciousness, giving us the
ability to discern right from
wrong.
My faith tradition teaches me
that I possess these qualities
because I've been created in the


likeness of The Creator. What
it all boils down to is that you
and I have purpose! Having
purpose should compel us to
strive for the very best our abili-
ties have to offer.
Matters related to existence,
survival and preservation of life
have been central to humanity
since pre-historic times. In the
last few years "life or death"
has been part of our national
reality as we've engaged in
a war that has resulted in the
death of many and the grief
of many more. Our politi-
cal and military leaders have
courageously struggled with
decisions that directly impact
matters of life or death. Their
struggle is founded on the truth
that life is precious; Life is irre-
placeable; life is a responsibil-
ity. Therefore:
Handle with Care: We are


surrounded by the marvels of
modern technology. No other
era in history has possessed the
scientific means for the pres-
ervation and duration of life.
As a society we acknowledge
the importance of life and use
our technology to prolong it.
Ironically, however, our soci-
ety is plagued by addictive life-
styles and destructive behaviors
totally unprecedented. "Life is
precious. Handle with care!"
Live It Abundantly:
Abundant living means respon-
sible living. Given the num-
ber of choices we face daily,
we are called upon to exercise
our choices in a responsible and
moral manner. Abundant liv-
ing is balanced living in which
we enjoy the good and pleas-
ant things of life in a balanced,
non-excessive way.
Share "Life" With Others:


"It is better to give than to
receive." This old adage can be
a driving force in reshaping the
world. Think about this. Our
country's population makes up
approximately five percent of
the world's inhabitants and yet
we consume in excess of forty
percent of the world's resourc-
es. The potential for improving
the plight of the less fortunate is
absolutely tremendous through
a more equitable distribution of
the world's resources. Sharing
with others starts with the indi-
vidual as each of us decides to
bless another's life.
"So live that after the minis-
ter has ended his remarks, those
present will not think they have
attended the wrong funeral."

Homefront in Focus


By Beth Wilson
Military Spouse Contributor
Two years ago I started an
experiment, an internet talk
show for military spouses. My
goal: to utilize 'new media'
as another avenue to connect
with fellow military spouses to
exchange information, resourc-
es, opportunities, inspiration
and even entertainment. My
weekly show is called Navy
Homefront Talk!. Each week we
bring guests and information to
enhance our quality of life as
we support our service member
and families.
This week Master Chief
Petty Officer of the Navy
(MCPON) Rick West joined
Navy Homefront Talk! on
a special broadcast. MCPON
West tackled various subjects
throughout the broadcast from
questions that were solicited
from listeners in advance of his
appearance. MCPON started
the interview by expressing his
appreciation of Navy spouses
offering a 'hearty BZ for the
support from the family, spouse,
parents, grandparents' who,
through their support, empower
our Navy to accomplish their
worldwide mission.

future based on current world
events.
MCPON West also offered
advice for Sailors and families
who may be considering IA/
GSA deployments, advance-
ment/career implications of an
IA/GSA assignment as well as
family support for these sailors
and their loved ones both dur-
ing and 'post' IA/GSA deploy-
ment.
MCPON tackled head-on the
topic and challenge of PTSD
and the resources available
for both Sailor and Families.
He voiced his desire to dispel
myths regarding PTSD and
commitment to educate and
support fleet and families on
PTSD.
MCPON voiced his support
and focus on communication
and pushing information to
people, as opposed to asking
them to pull it, including uti-


lizing new mediums of com-
munication. MCPON hosts a
Facebook page and encourages
Sailors and families to become
a fan and post your insight,
ideas, feedback on his page
(www.facebook.com/MCPON).
He is also on twitter (www.
twitter.com/MCPONPAO).
When asked if we would see
a MCPON blog soon he said,
"Oh, I'm busy focusing on my
Facebook so I don't think so at
this time."
MCPON tackled many more
topics on this broadcast from
family support, Ombudsman
program, new media, and much
more. To hear the entire broad-
cast go to http://www.home-
frontinfocus.com/html/talk
show.html. Once there click on
the "MCPON is on the Deck"
episode for the full broadcast.
MCPON West will be return-
ing to the show in the near


future and he wants to take your
live calls. Stay tuned as I will
let you know when that broad-
cast is scheduled.
If you have not checked out
internet broadcasting, or pod-
casts, let me encourage you to
do so! Think of DVR for your
talk show entertainment. Each
podcast can be listened to live
or on your laptop at your con-
venience. Perhaps my favorite
feature is the ability to sub-
scribe to the RSS feed of my
favorite podcasts then down-
load them to my MP3 player
to listen during a commute
or workout. Navy Homefront

Speicher Laid To Rest In Hometown


By MC2 Daniel Gay
Naval Publhc. i; Support Element
East, Detachment Southeast
Thousands of people, both
military and civilians, showed
their respects as the remains
of the first casualty of Desert
Storm, Capt. Michael Scott
Speicher, were brought to
Naval Air Station (NAS)
Jacksonville after being found
in Iraq after 18 years.
The remains arrived at the
NAS Jacksonville flight line
Aug. 13 and were then taken by
motorcade to All Saints Chapel
on base, where they remained
overnight for people to give
their final respects for the fallen
Navy pilot.
"I think his return is symbolic
of the Navy's desire to never
forget a lost shipmate and to
always continue to pursue and
find those that are missing or
lost," said Rear Adm. Townsend
Alexander, commander, Navy
Region Southeast.
The following day the flag-
draped casket left the chapel
in a police escorted proces-
sion en route to Speicher's
interment ceremony. During
the trip the motorcade made
stops at Speicher's church, his
high school, the Jacksonville
Veterans Memorial Wall and
Cecil Field, the military base
where Speicher was last sta-
tioned before the war.
"It is a very significant
day," said Rear Adm. Patrick
Driscoll, the official escorting

"At a time in our nation's

more than ever, Captain

not look any farther than those

Crist. "I am honored to speak

HSL-44 Swamp Foxes


Volunteer In Barbados


By Lt.j.g. Matt Noble
HSL-44
Twelve members of HSL-44 Detachment Six,
embarked on USS Winston S. Churchill (DDG
81) in support of Summit of the Americas, recent-
ly volunteered their liberty time at a local animal
shelter in Bridgetown, Barbados.
Along with members of the Churchill's crew,
the Swamp Foxes spent an afternoon during
a port day working at the New Hope Animal
Shelter. The effort was spearheaded by Lt.
Michael Short, Detachment Six Operations offi-
cer, and was met with wide enthusiasm by all
participants.
Their support did not falter even in the face of
the vast amount of work required. Throughout
the hot and humid afternoon, teams of workers
painted buildings, both outside and in. Others


cut grass and removed trash. Volunteers with
carpentry skills built new dog shelters and moved
approximately two truck loads of dirt and gravel,
by shovel and wheelbarrow, across the compound
where it was used to level out a large open area;
meant to be a future home for up to forty forgot-
ten dogs.
"It was inspiring to see everyone come
together and accomplish so much," said Aviation
Electronics Technician 3rd Class (AW) Tyler
Fisher. "I was happy to be part of it." Overall,
the entire crew contributed 312 man hours of
work to the shelter in the space of one afternoon.
The volunteers were treated to dinner by their
grateful hosts and the community relations proj-
ect was reported on the local news media.
"It was a lot of hard work, but definitely worth
it," said Lt.j.g. Levi Broeckelman.

Master ( 'Petty Officer ofthe Navy
Public,; -
During a conversation with
Sailors Aug. 5, the master
chief petty officer of the Navy
(MCPON) said that stress on
the Navy family and operational
stress control will be two sig-
nificant points of emphasis for
him for the rest of the summer.
"We have to look out for
each other. I need everyone to
be on the lookout for the signs
of stress because too often our
Sailors aren't going to seek help
on their own," said MCPON
(SS/SW) Rick D. West,
when he spoke with Sailors
assigned to the White House
Communications Agency on
board Anacostia Naval Station.
"No one should feel they're
in this by themselves."
West has been addressing
stress control most of the sum-
mer. He says it's the Sailors
who have concerns but don't
share them with leaders and
shipmates who worry him as
much as those crew members
who are referred for counseling
or treatment.


it and as many tragedies we've
had to endure, I'm betting there
are still thousands of people
across our Navy who need help
but aren't asking for it."
West said it is his intent to
discuss the problem with every
group of Sailors he speaks with
and focus on breaking down the
myth that admitting to a prob-
lem is a sign of weakness or can
hurt a Sailor's career.
"That's the biggest problem
as I see it. Too many of us feel
that depression or suicidal ide-
ation is a stigma, a character
flaw that we're ashamed to
admit. Well, none of us have
good days every day."
West will be filming a video
on operational stress control,
which should hit the fleet by the
end of the summer. He said he
would like to use that opportu-
nity to discuss with Sailors of
all ranks different approaches
to recognizing and dealing with
stress.
"From seaman to admiral, we
have a shared responsibility to
stay ahead of the curve. What
does that mean? We train hard,

for each other. When you notice
signs of stress in yourself or
others cutting corners, irrita-
bility, trouble sleeping fi talk to
a shipmate, friend, family mem-
ber or someone else you trust. If
you see the signs of more seri-
ous stress, get help immediately
from your chain of command,
chaplain or medical provider."

Academy Midshipmen


From USS Underwood Pubhc. ;,
During the last four weeks
Midshipmen from the U.S.
Naval Academy have been on
board USS Underwood (FFG
36) as part of the Midshipman
summer training program.
These Midshipmen have been
afforded the opportunity to live
onboard the Guided Missile
Frigate and experience the daily
routine of the ship's crew as it
goes through their 2009 training
cycle.
The three Midshipmen par-
ticipated in damage control and
anti-terrorism force protection
drills, drove the ship simula-

HSL-48
next generation of rotary-wing
aircraft.
As the ceremony concluded,
Banta formally presented the
aircraft logbooks to retired
Capt. Bob Rasmussen, director
of the museum.
Rasmussen then lifted the
atrium doors and ceremonially
unveiled the museum's newest
exhibit. The former HSL-48
squadron "showbird" sat on
display on a spot outside the
atrium. VENOM 500 proudly
displayed its markings in the
green and yellow colors of the
squadron, with an impressive
airbrushed Viper coiled around
the tail of the aircraft.
Ironically, the museum induc-
tion almost never occurred.


tor onboard Underwood, and
toured several ships in the
Mayport basin. They also had
the opportunity to fly in the
latest helicopter simulator at
Helicopter Squadron Medium
Seventy at Naval Air Station,
Jacksonville. The Midshipmen
were also able to get a back seat
flight with HSL-48.
The ship tours coupled with
the flight and simulator time
gave the Midshipmen the abil-
ity to experience all aspects of
operations pertaining to life on
board a U.S. frigate.
The midshipmen also par-
ticipated in wardroom func-



Instead, the aircraft was origi-
nally scheduled to be delivered
to the desert boneyard at Davis-
Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz.
A seemingly ignoble end to an
illustrious warbird, the plans
changed once the museum got
involved.
"We owe all of this to
Captain Rasmussen, Ms. Helen
Watson, and the museum staff,"
praised Banta. "Without their
involvement, this great day
would have never occurred."
During its career, VENOM
500 (Bureau Number 162137)
flew 8,785 flight hours and
made more than 29,000 field
and shipboard landings while
assigned to three different Navy
squadrons. The Navy offi-


tions that included two Hail
and Farewells as well as a
Jacksonville Sun's Game which
allowed them the opportunity to
see the camaraderie associated
with the wardroom and Navy
life outside the Navy's opera-
tional commitments.
Thanks to the support of USS
Underwood and the helicop-
ter squadrons the midshipmen
received thorough training and
experienced all aspects associ-
ated with the lifestyle and oper-
ational commitments aboard a
U.S. Navy warship.

From Page 1
cially accepted the aircraft in
February of 1986 and assigned
it to the HSL-40 "Airwolves,"
the SH-60B Fleet Replacement
Squadron, where it flew almost
2,500 hours training SH-60B
aviators and aircrew. Six
years later, the aircraft trans-
ferred to the HSL-44 "Swamp
Foxes" and was designated as
MAGNUM 457. In 1998, the
aircraft transferred to HSL-48,
where it was re-designated as
VENOM 500. During its ser-
vice life, the aircraft deployed
around the world on numerous
Atlantic Fleet ships, including
USS Thomas S. Gates (CG 51),
USS Boone (FFG 28), USS
Stump (DD 978), and USS
McInerney (FFG 8).

said.
"A significant amount of
health care provided to [the
Defense Department] and VA
beneficiaries occurs by private-
sector providers," he said. "So,


ferred by anglers is also what
makes it so hazardous to wild-
life. Monofilament fishing
line is non-biodegradable and
may last up to 600 years in the
environment. It can harm wild-
life when ingested or when it
becomes entangled, causing
animals to drown or lose limbs.
Monofilament caught around
the flipper of a marine mam-
mal or sea turtle can result in
the loss of the flipper or death
due to infection and/or a weak-
ened health state. Thousands of
seabirds are rescued annually
from being entangled by hooks
and fishing line. Additionally,
more than 60 species of fish
have been documented to have
swallowed or become entangled
in monofilament.
The goals of Naval Station
Mayport's Monofilament
Recovery and Recycling
Program are to heighten aware-
ness about the negative impacts
that fishing line debris has on
people, marine life, and water
quality; decrease the amount
of fishing line entering and
remaining in the environment;

From Page 1
we need the ability to make
health records available to the
providers who need it, regard-
less if they are a military, VA,
or doctor within the public
community."
Numerous, ongoing data-
sharing activities are continu-
ing among agencies that share
information and are commit-
ted to improving health care
to "servicemen and women of
the present, past and future,"
Timberlake said.
"Every day, millions of piec-
es of health information are
shared between [the Defense
Department] and VA; however,
as Congress mandated and as
the departments have acknowl-
edged, there is more work to
do to make it flow smoother,"
he said.

fishing on board the Station are
requested to place waste fishing
line in the monofilament line
recycling stations.
Only fishing line that is a
single filament, nylon product
should be placed in the stations.
Fishing line that is braided or
contains wire cannot be recy-
cled. In addition, fishing line
that contains trash or has a lot
of plant material mixed up with
it is not recyclable.
Monofilament line may
also be recycled at the
Environmental Department,
Building 2021 on Bon Homme
Richard Street. Please con-

Program Manager, for addition-
al information.

FFSC Classes, Workshops Available In August


From FFSC
The following classes and
activities are offered by the
Fleet and Family Support
Center (FFSC) and are free
of charge. Pre-registration is
required and childcare is not
available. For more information
about the classes or to register
call 270-6600, ext. 110. FFSC
is located in Building One on
Massey Avenue.

FFSC
Aug. 20, 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.
Aug. 20, 1-4 p.m.,

This workshop is designed
for inexperienced, as well as
experienced military members
on permanent change of station
(PCS) orders. The Personal
Property Shipping Office will
provide information on how to
deal with movers and personal
property entitlements. The trav-
el section of Personnel Support
Detachment (PSD) will pres-
ent a section on travel pay and
allowances. FFSC staff will
discuss the emotional cycles of
relocation, budgeting for a PCS
move and provide some strate-


gies for families.
Aug. 24, 9-11 a.m., What
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.
Aug. 24-27, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.,
TAP Separatee Workshop,
Building 1, Room 104
Designed for Military per-
sonnel within 180 -90 days of
leaving the military. The semi-
nar focuses on benefits for ser-
vice members and their family
members. Participants receive
help in translating their mili-
tary acquired skills into civil-
ian language and are exposed
to the civilian job market and
how to successfully compete
in the civilian employment
arena; learning about resumes,
employment interviews and
marketing themselves. If you
are within a minimum of 180
days of leaving the military
see your career counselor for a
quota for this highly successful
program.

Quick Hire Of Military Knowthe Ropes


Spouses Starts Soon


By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service
Under a personnel rule that
takes effect next month, some
military spouses could be
quickly hired for federal jobs
without going through the usual
competitive process.
The new hiring author-
ity takes effect Sept. 11. The
Office of Personal Management
issued the authority's final regu-
latory guidelines Aug. 12. The
guidelines are posted in the
Federal Register under the title:
"Noncompetitive Appointment
of Certain Military Spouses."
The intended effect of the
rule, according to documents
listed in the Federal Register,
"is to facilitate the entry of mil-
itary spouses into the federal
civil service as part of an effort
to recruit and retain skilled and
experienced members of the
armed forces and to recognize
and honor the service of mem-
bers injured, disabled, or killed
in connection with their ser-
vice."
"Military spouse employ-
ment is a key to the quality of
life of our military families,"
Kathleen Ott, director of talent
acquisition, development and
management in the Office of
the Deputy Undersecretary of
Defense for Civilian Personnel
Policy, said yesterday during
an interview with Pentagon
Channel and American Forces
Press Service reporters.
The availability of jobs for
military spouses contributes
to the sustainment of the all-
volunteer force, Ott said, cit-
ing a recent survey in which
employed military spouses
reported that their work income
constitutes about 48 percent of
total family income.
"But, it's really hard to keep
a job if you have to move from
station to station," Ott said.
Federal employment, she said,
offers military spouses a porta-
ble career with transferable ben-
efits and worldwide presence.
"We thought, in order to help
our military spouses continue


their employment, it would be
a good thing for us to facilitate
their entry into the federal gov-
ernment," she said.
Eligible individuals, Ott said,
include spouses of active-duty
servicemembers who have
been called on to relocate. This
includes spouses of Guardsmen
or reservists who've been called
up for more than 180 days of
active service other than train-
ing. Eligible spouses must be
moving to another duty station
accompanied by their service-
member husband or wife.
Spouses of former service-
members listed as 100-per-
cent disabled and separated or
retired, as well as widows or
widowers of servicemembers
who died on active duty and
who have not remarried also are
eligible.
The new hiring author-
ity does not constitute a hiring
preference for eligible military
spouses, according to OPM.
"This authority is a noncom-
petitive hiring mechanism; it
does not establish or constitute
a hiring preference for eligible
spouses, nor does it create an
entitlement to a federal job for
an eligible spouse," according
to regulatory documents listed
in the Federal Register.
Applicants still must meet
specific job-qualification crite-
ria listed for individual posi-
tions, according to OPM docu-
ments.
"This is not a preference.
We firmly believe that our
spouses can compete on their
own merits," Ott said, noting
that the new hiring rules pro-
vide military spouses with "a
streamlined, facilitated means
of obtaining federal employ-
ment." ,A,AUse of the new
hiring authority "is completely
at the discretion of hiring agen-
cies," according to OPM docu-
ments, and "it is one of many
hiring tools agencies may use to
recruit needed individuals."
Spouses who complete three
years of continuous satisfactory
service will be converted from a


career-conditional appointment
to career appointment, Ott said.
Personnel officials do not
anticipate that the new military-
spouse hiring authority would
adversely affect the hiring of
military veterans into the fed-
eral government, Ott said.
Military spouses can find out
about federal job opportunities
through OPM's USAJobs Web
site, Ott said.
The new hiring authority
"sends a very important mes-
sage to our military families
that their sacrifice is recog-
nized by the federal govern-
ment, and that they recognize
that having a career opportunity
is really critical for their fam-
ily's well being," said Barbara
Thompson, director of the
Pentagon's Office of Family
Policy/Children and Youth.
More than 77 percent of mili-
tary spouses have indicated
in surveys that they are inter-
ested in establishing careers,
Thompson said. Other data, she
added, indicates that military
spouses are, overall, more high-
ly educated than their civilian
counterparts.
"I think it's a win-win situa-
tion that the federal government
is accessing a pool of spouses
who have the same levels of
commitment and caring and ser-
vice to the nation," Thompson
said.
The department's Military
Spouse Career Advancement
Account, also known as
MyCAA, provides employ-
ment, career, education/training,
counseling and financial assis-
tance for spouses of active-duty
military and activated Guard
and reserve members world-
wide, she said.
President George W. Bush
issued an executive order estab-
lishing guidelines for the hir-
ing authority in September
2008, but implementation of the
order was delayed while it was
reviewed by the Obama admin-
istration.


School starts for Duval
County Public School (DCPS)
students on Aug. 24. Will your
child be riding a bus or walking
to school this year? More stu-
dents will be walking or biking
due to a policy change made by
the School Board in April 2009.
Students who live two miles or
less from their assigned school
will not be eligible for transpor-
tation. Bus stops may be up to
1.5 miles away instead of one
mile.
DCPS transportation depart-
ment has provided an exception
to that policy for middle school
students who live on Naval
Station Mayport. Bus stops
for Mayport Middle students
will be at England/Moale and
Osbourne/Moale. However,
the bus will no longer stop at
Everglades St./Moale.
Individual school letters were
sent home to selected schools in
June. But the ones to Mayport
Middle parents have been
updated to reflect this change.
You can check your school's
website or the District's website
to view this updated letter.

hoods for students attending a
middle or high school that is
not in their attendance area.
"Express Route" stops will be
at or near schools. The nearest
school may be more than one-
and-one-half miles away from
home.
Stops for after-school activ-
ity buses for middle and high
school magnet students will
be at or near schools or loca-
tions in the community. The
after school activity routes will


depart at one time only which
will be determined by the
school's principal.

tion will be available begin-
ning Aug. 11 at your school,

You may also contact trans-
portation's Call Center at 381-

For those parents who have
elementary-age children walk-
ing or biking to school, they
are encouraged to create "safe
routes" teams to help map the
safest walking or riding route.
Parents have the responsibility
to ensure the safe travel of their
children to and from school.
The school liaison officer
will work with the individual
schools to assist in providing
bus etiquette workshops and
pedestrian and bicycle safety
education workshops. Schools
and/or parents wishing to host
a workshop should contact me
at 270-6289 ext.1305 to make

Guide to Military Travel



Top Ten Tips For Traveling With Kids


By Erica I. Pefia-Vest
Military Travel Columnist
I often get asked by nervous
parents what tips I have for
traveling with children. After
all, I have two small kids (a
two year old and a seven month
old) and I often talk about what
great travelers they are. I like
to tell people that they were
destined to be good travelers
as children of a naval aviator
and a travel writer, but in all
honesty, it's just good planning.
Follow these tips and your kids
will travel happy too.
First, always make time for
naps.
This includes those fun days
at the amusement parks when
your children say, "But mom,
I'm not tired."
If you have children that are
napping age, a daytime inter-
ruption of fun for a nap is a
must! Even if your children
are not at the napping age, a
trip to the hotel for some rest
and relaxation is always a great
way to recharge ones batteries.
Call it a "regrouping/planning"
meeting that way older kids
are less likely to protest.
Second, travel with enter-
tainment for the road or the
sky.
Make sure that those hours
spent getting to the destination
are enjoyable too. For young
children, bring things that will
keep them busy for increments
of time activity books, a por-
table DVD player with their


favorite movies, coloring sup-
plies, etc.
For older kids, remind them
to bring their headphones,
Ipods, portable game machines,
books, etc. There are infinite
amount of ways of getting cre-
ative in this area. It's your job
as a parent and trip planner to
make the 'getting there' experi-
ence just as enjoyable as the trip
itself.
Third, make allowances for
grumpiness.
Ever heard the expression
"You look the way I feel"?
Well, for kids of all ages,
they act the way we feel.
Connecting flights, long waits
for amusement park rides, too
much sun, too much stimula-
tion causes all of us to get fussy.
We, as adults, have merely
learned to hide it better. Kids
haven't. When they are cranky,
remember that scolding, yell-
ing or threatening isn't going to
make the situation better but a
nap or a quiet moment back at
the hotel will.
Fourth, sometimes a snack
makes everything better.
Always carry water and treats
for those moments when your
kids are hot, thirty, a little bit
hungry and tired. Sometimes a
snack is the perfect pick-me-up.
Fifth, never leave the house
without Tylenol or Motrin for
kids (and you too).
Have you ever been so tired
at the end of a day at an amuse-
ment park that you feel pain


By Linda D. Kozaryn
American Forces Press Service
Defense officials at the Pentagon have rede-
signed the Defense Department Web site to use
social networking tools to engage the American
public particularly 18- to 24-year-olds.
"We need to embrace these technologies. We
need to use them because that's what the young
people use these days. We need to communicate
with them," said Price Floyd, principal deputy
assistant secretary of defense for public affairs.
People between the ages of 18 and 24 are much
more likely to communicate using Twitter and
Facebook than they are traditional communica-
tion tools, Floyd told the American Forces Press
Service, the Pentagon Channel and DoDLive
Blog Talk Radio.
"If we just stick to the traditional ways of com-
municating, we leave out a huge portion of soci-
ety," he said.
Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates recognizes
both the need for engagement with the American
people and the value of these new tools, Floyd
noted.
"The secretary wanted to figure out ways to
engage more with the public, and one of the ways
you can do that is through your Web site," he
said.
So defense public affairs officials redesigned
the Defense Department's home page, launch-
ing Defense.gov on Aug. 17. The department's
former home page DefenseLINK.mil focused
on providing news and information, Floyd said.
The new site, Defense.gov, will emphasize per-
sonal, two-way communication. DefenseLINK
was a name more suited for an internal Web
site, an intranet, as opposed to an Internet site,
he added. "Most people on the outside wouldn't
have guessed that DefenseLink was the Web site
for the Defense Department."
"Instead of trying to figure out one new name,
we've taken several domain names which all
lead you to the same place DoD.gov, Defense.
gov and Defense.mil, and Pentagon.gov and
Pentagon.mil," he said. "This puts the site more
in line with the other departments in the govern-
ment State.gov, Whitehouse.gov. and it's a
more intuitive name to search for."
Defense public affairs officials used the newly
interactive White House Web site as a model.
Just as Whitehouse.gov asks people to give their
policy recommendations to the President, the new
Defense site will seek people's input on defense
policies and issues, thus giving the site more
credibility, according to Floyd.
"We do live in a democracy and that feedback
from people is important to know what they're
thinking, what they believe is important," he
said. "It's their national security policy, it's not
ours. It's theirs. The president was elected and he
appointed people here at the Defense Department
to lead, but it starts with the American people."
"I think we might be surprised by the issues
and policies that are important to the American
people, versus what we think are important," he
added.
A new feature on Defense.gov will enable peo-
ple to pose questions for the defense secretary,
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other
top defense and military officials.
"You can type in what you want to ask the


in places that had never hurt
before? Well, kids are no dif-
ferent. If you have small chil-
dren, they may not be able to
tell you that they are in pain.
I'm not recommending you
medicate your children with-
out reason. I'm suggesting that
you travel prepared and a handy
first aid/medicine kit is a neces-
sity.
Sixth, be mindful of the
weather and dress your kids
appropriately.
I learned this one the hard
way. We are stationed in the
North where it snows in the
winter but have family in the
deep South were there is no
winter. Traveling home for the
holidays with children in tur-
tle necks and sweaters in 100
degree weather will make a
trip go bad FAST. Visit online
weather sites that will give you
a predicted weather pattern for
the days of your visit and plan
accordingly. Also remember
that on vacation, dress for com-
fort. Having your children in
dress clothes to visit Grandma
in South Texas makes as much
sense as me wearing heels to go
to Disneyland. We all want to
look good, but while traveling
placing a high priority on com-
fort will insure a more pleasant
trip.
Seventh, don't overdo the
'visiting'.
As military families, we often
spend our vacations visiting
family. If your family is like


secretary," Floyd explained. "We'll leave that
open for several weeks. Once it's done, people
can then go in and vote on questions they want
to have asked. They can vote on more than one,
and the software will enable us to determine the
top five questions, which the secretary has to
answer.
"There will also be a place where you'll be
able to type in policy initiatives that are important
to you," Floyd continued. "After several weeks,
people will be able to come back and vote on
the policy initiatives that are most important to
them."
The new site also will link to the Defense
Department's Facebook and Twitter sites. People
can post comments and these engagement tools
also will help people in the Department see and
hear what the public regards as important.
Floyd said the goal is to encourage command-
ers to launch their own social networking sites,
"so there's not just one DoD Twitter site, or one
Facebook site the military uses, there are hun-
dreds, thousands."
U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, European
Command and Southern Command, for example,
have Facebook sites, and there are numerous sites
within each of these commands.
"Here in the Pentagon, the chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff has his own Twitter site. I
have a Twitter site," he said.
He stressed, however, that operational security
remains a concern, and cautioned people to be
careful when posting information on these sites.
The security of the social networking sites is a
major concern to Strategic Command, he noted,
and the Marine Corps has banned the use of
social networking on official computers.
Recognizing that there are risks involved,
Deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn III has
tasked the department's chief information offi-
cer to conduct a short-fused study. A report is
due to the deputy on Aug. 31 and a policy is to
be announced by the end of September. Floyd
said officials will look at both the threats and
opportunities social networking sites hold for
the department. The study will allow defense
officials to make a decision on how to move
forward and implement a uniform, department-
wide policy for dealing with social network sites.
Floyd hopes the number of visits to Defense.gov
will increase beyond DefenseLINK's two million
visits a month.
"Unlike most Web sites, more people over
45 go to DefenseLINK than under 45," he said.
"This was another reason why we needed to
change the Web site and rebrand it was to reach
that younger audience. But we also don't want to
lose the audience we have now."
The American Forces Press Service news and
feature articles, photographs and special reports
currently on DefenseLINK will continue to be
available as an internal page on Defense.gov.
Floyd's message to the American public: "I
encourage everyone to go to the new Web site to
check it out. If you see things we can improve,
please let me know. Feel free to reach out to me
on my Twitter site which is on there and give
me your comments. Don't just let me know what
you think needs to be improved, but let me know
what you think is working really well and what
you like."


ours, we go house to house and
visit aunts and uncles, grand-
parents and great grandparents
and try to fit it all into a short
schedule. This often times
leaves kids frustrated, over-
stimulated and overwhelmed.
Try doing a few visits a day
if time permits. If not, have a
party!
Get as much of your family
together at one event as possi-
ble. Try a barbeque at the park.
That way, you get to see your
loved ones and the kids are not
confined to a house or multiple
stops.
Eight, include your kids in
trip preparations.
Including your little ones in
the planning helps them feel
as if they are part of the vaca-
tion too, not just added luggage.
Remember that the anticipation
of the trip can sometimes be
just as fun as the trip itself if
handled correctly. Order maps
from the local convention and
visitors bureau, buy books
about your destination, check
to see if the local tourist bureau
has videos available, surf infor-


mative websites devoted to your
destination.
All of these planning steps
help get children excited about
their upcoming adventure. The
more excited they are about
their trip, the more likely they
are to do their part to help make
it memorable.
Nine, the most important
part of your trip is making a
memory (not recording it).
The first thing I pack when
I travel is my camera and Flip.
I love capturing those one of a
kind moments like the first time
my son saw Mickey Mouse...
but I constantly have to remind
myself that making the memory
is more important than record-
ing it. Sure, pictures and vid-
eos are a great souvenir but we
have to make sure that we don't
spend all of our vacation behind
a camera.
Ask any celebrity and they
will tell you that the worst part
of their job is being followed,
photographed and gawked
at like a fish in a bowl. Most
children feel the same. I know
that after a couple of pictures


my son takes my camera from
me, takes me by the hand and
leads me to fun. That's his way
of asking me to not just record
the memory but to be part of it.
Sometimes the greatest lessons
we learn are from our children.
This, for me, was one of them.
Lastly, for my tenth tip -
have fun!
Don't get so busy with the
planning, the schedule keeping,
the baby sitting, the kid herding
that you forget to enjoy your-
self. Vacations have a way of
working themselves out if well
planned. So sit back, relax, and
enjoy the trip. Remember, if
you think back to your child-
hood vacations, even the worst
trip you took is one of the mem-
ories you cherish. It's about
time with family, it's about
moments that you can never
get back, it's about exploration
and adventure, it's about bond-
ing...but most of all it's about
making a memory. For tips on
