Navy Tweaks

Some PCSs
By MC1(AW)
LaTunya Howard
Naval Personnel Command
Public. -
The chief of naval per-
sonnel (CNP) released an
update in NAVADMIN 236/09
on permanent change of
station (PCS) orders indi-
cating that some Sailors set
to move in the first quarter
of fiscal year 2010 (FY10)
will receive their orders after
Oct. 1.
The recent supplemen-
tal funding from Congress
allowed Navy Personnel
Command (NPC) to resume
normal order writing for the
fourth quarter this fiscal year.
This followed a temporary
hold initiated in April.
"Using the prioritiza-
tion strategy developed in
Millington, we mitigated the
impact of the initial PCS
shortfall and were largely
successful in minimizing the
impacts on Sailors and their
families," said Rear Adm.
Don Quinn, commander
NPC and deputy CNP. "One
of the mitigation actions was
to shift a number of project-
ed rotation dates (PRDs) to
FY10."
Although funds were
restored for those receiving
orders through September,
the majority of PRDs that
were shifted to FY10 will
remain adjusted.
Current funding lev-
els support all identified
fourth quarter FY09 moves.
However, a PCS obliga-
tion policy change that went
into effect earlier this year
means that PCS funds must
be obligated when orders
are released, instead of
when the Sailor detaches.
The result is that some of
the FY10 orders cannot be

HSL-42 Maintenance Is 'Golden'


By Lt.j.g Chris Hinson
HSL-42 PAO
HSL-42 maintenance depart-
ment has the golden touch and
an award to prove it.
The HSL-42 Proud Warriors
was awarded the 2008 Golden
Wrench Award by retired
Captain(Ret) Greg Hoffman
of the Sikorsky Aircraft
Corporation during a Squadron
awards quarters on Aug. 17.
The competition for the
Golden Wrench is intense
among the HSL Squadrons and
this year was no different. The
award is presented annually to
the squadron with that dem-
onstrates excellence in aircraft
maintenance.
In 2008, HSL-42 completed
an outstanding year of main-
tenance excellence while sup-
porting 10 LAMPS MK-III
SH-60B helicopter detachments
deployed on surface combat-
ants in seven different Areas
of Operation across the world.
They completed 6,512 mishap-
free flight hours during opera-
tions in the most challenging
environments in naval aviation

and flew more than any other
HSL command world-wide.
During these flight hours,
HSL-42 accumulated more
than 950 combined days of
embarked operations and com-
pleted more than 6,000 ship-
board landings. In this peri-
od time the Maintenance
Department excelled with a
HSMWINGLANT leading
-.21 average Command Ready
Basic Aircraft (RBA) gap and
-.5 average Ready for Training
(RFT) gap, providing a reliable
sensor and weapons platform
to Fleet, Battle Group and unit
Commanders worldwide.
"Without the tremendous
effort and attention to detail
put forth by the maintenance
department, the winning of
this award would have not
been possible," said Cmdr.
Christopher Failla. "It is their
constant effort to go above and
beyond that pushes HSL-42
above the rest."
The squadron has surpassed
173,500 hours and 22 years of
Class "A" mishap-free flight
operations.

Chaplain's Corner


I don't know if you ever had
the experience of stumbling
over words or making a fool out
of yourself in a public speech.
How about wondering what to
say next in a conversation with
a friend or an acquaintance?
Sometimes you may feel that
your words are not having any
affect on those people you're
trying to reach.
What if you were to sud-
denly lose your ability to speak
or communicate through other
means? You would not be able
to articulate your feelings, your
desires, your joys or even your
anger. You would lose the abil-
ity to correct false impressions
or share your ideas. You would
lose the power to encourage,
inspire or even reprimand when
necessary. You would be forced
into a shell of your own inner


Chaplain Joe Molina

world and it would be a pretty
lonely place.
Even while possessing the
ability to speak you may still
experience those awkward
moments when you become
frustrated with the ineffective-


ness of your own words. While
many of life's challenges and
frustrations may appear to have
nothing to do with words, I
propose that words play a very
important (if not vital) role.
Indeed the use of our words will
paint a picture of the emotional,
moral and spiritual condition of
our soul. That condition will
determine how we deal with the
issues of life.
The wisdom of the ages
has much to say about the use
of words. The "proverbs" of
antiquity address the impor-
tance that words carry. For
example, here is a tested and
true statement that echoes from
the past:
"For by your words you
will be acquitted, and by your
words you will be condemned"
(Gospel of Matthew 12:37)


This always gets my atten-
tion and makes me reflect about
the use of my words. From this
simple verity we can derive a
universe of principles that can
convince us of our responsibil-
ity. Here are some time-tested
principles:
WORDS CAN BLESS:
Think of those people who
have made a positive difference
in your life. Consider those
people that have used words
to encourage, motivate and
affirm you. Those people have
been, and may continue to be,
the "cheerleaders" in your life.
Whenever you have been ready
to quit, that particular per-
son has had a knack for com-
ing alongside you and uttering
those special words that have
kept you going. Notice that
when that happens, their intent


is to transform you and bless
you through the use of words.
That's powerful! You likewise
can bless others through the use
of your words.
WORDS CAN DESTROY:
"Sticks and stones may break
my bones but words can never
hurt me." It's a nice rhyme but
words can hurt and words can
destroy reputations. Sticks and
stones can't. A marriage can be
destroyed by the careless use of
words. Friendships can be crip-
pled through insensitive words.
WORDS DEFINE OUR
TRUE SELF: Words will give
away who we are. Think about
conversations you've had and
the image that has been project-
ed by the words you have used.
Many times words will even
determine who you become
because your words have the


power to change your life.
Rabbi Stephen Samuel Wise
was invited to address an
anti-Nazi group in Brooklyn.
Before the speech he received
several messages from hate
groups that threatened to kill
him. Rabbi Wise approached
the podium on the day of the
meeting and said: "I have been
warned to stay away from this
meeting under pain of being
killed. If anyone is going to
shoot me, let him do it now. I
hate to be interrupted." This
good Rabbi knew the innate
power of words! He had some-
thing to say and his enemies
recognized the power behind
his words.
Do words have power? YES!
Words can change your world
and the world of people around
you!


H omefront in Focus

Recently congress passed the Post 9/11 GI Bill. This bill
improves the previous Montgomery GI Bill. What is the GI Bill?
The Post 9/11 GI Bill is a government program that provides
financial support for education for current active duty and many
veterans. This is great news for today's service members and their
families.
Like the former GI Bill you must be enrolled (contributing) in
the GI Bill. Your service member had an opportunity to do this
early in their military career. To be eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill
service members must have 90 cumulative days of service on or
after September 11, 2001 or 30 days if discharged with a service-
connected disability. Veterans must have received an honorable
discharge to be eligible.
The program provides:
*Tuitions and fees paid directly to the school (Institution of
Higher Learning) not to exceed the maximum in-state tuition and
fees (on a per state basis). For a chart of in-state maximums logon
to www.gibil.va.gov/GI_Bill_Info/CH33/Tuition and fees.htm
*Housing allowance based on the BAH (Basic Allowance for
Housing) for an E-5 with dependents based on the location of the
school.
*Stipend for books and supplies (proportional to enrollment) up


to a maximum of $1,000.
The GI bill provides for up to 36 months of education benefits
and generally are payable for 15 years from release from active
duty. Eligibility benefits are listed below.


Service Benefits*
36 Cumulative Months 100%
30 Cumulative Months 90%
24 Cumulative Months 80%
18 Cumulative Months 70%
12 Cumulative Months 60%

90 Cumulative Days 40%

There is another
aspect of the Post
9/11 GI Bill that
directly benefits
spouses and chil-
dren. As of August
1, 2009, service
members enrolled
in the Post-9/11 GI
Bill program will
be able to transfer
unused educational
benefits to their
spouses or chil-
dren. This feature
is referred to as
TEB. Benefits can
or more of the ser-


vice member's children or any combination of spouse and child.
Family members must be enrolled in DEERS (Defense Eligibility


Enrollment Reporting Systems) and be eligible for benefits at the
time of transfer to receive the transferred benefit. There are also
qualifying conditions that must be met by the service member. If
discharged there are one set of conditions, if active duty another.
For more information please logon to the following sites for
detailed information and eligibility:
U.S. Department of Defense: http://www.defenselink.mil/home/
features/2009/0409_gibill/
Department of Veterans Affairs: http://www.gibill.va.gov/GI
Bill Info/CH33/Transfer.htm
Did you know that on average a person with a degree will earn
$1 million dollars more than someone without a degree? Active
duty service members can access additional educational benefits
while serving on Active Duty. Contact your local Navy College for
more information.
Utilizing the new Post 9/11 GI Bill provides opportunities for
service members and their dependents to get that coveted degree!

Obama Pledges Support For Troops, Vets ___


By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service
America's men and women
in uniform have done their duty
and fulfilled every responsibil-
ity that's been asked of them,
President Barack Obama said
Aug. 17.
"And now," he said, "a grate-
ful nation must fulfill ours."
Obama offered high praise
for the troops, calling them the
heart and soul of the world's
best military during a speech at
the Veterans of Foreign Wars'
annual convention in Phoenix.
"It's not the powerful weap-
ons that make our military the
strongest in the world. It's not
the sophisticated systems that
make us the most advanced," he
told the veterans. "No, the true
strength of our military lies in
the spirit and skill of our men
and women in uniform."
Obama said he recognizes
his responsibility to "America's
most precious resource" and
vowed to be deliberate in how
he commits them.
"I will only send you into
harm's way when it is absolute-
ly necessary," he said. "When
I do, it will be based on good
intelligence and guided by a
sound strategy. And I will give
you a clear mission, defined
goals and the equipment and
support you need to get the job
done."
Obama promised to ensure
troops have the resources,
equipment and strategies they
need to succeed in the current
conflicts as well as future ones.
"We need to keep our mili-
tary the best-trained, best-led,
best-equipped fighting force in
the world," he said.
The president outlined some
of the initiatives under way to
support this goal:
Growing the Army and
Marine Corps and halting
reductions in the Navy and Air
Force to increase time between
deployments, reduce stress on
the force and bring an end to
the Army's stop-loss, an invol-
untary extension program;
Providing more assets to
support current operations: heli-
copters and crews; intelligence,
surveillance and reconnaissance
capabilities; special operations
forces; and armored vehicles
and protective gear;
Conducting a top-to-bottom
review of military priorities and
posture to develop a new blue-
print for the 21st century mili-
tary the United States will need;
Balancing military capabili-
ties to face unconventional as
well as conventional threats;
Modernizing the force by
investing in new skills and spe-
cialties as well as new technolo-
gies; and
Reforming the way the
Pentagon does business to
reduce waste and get the most
capability out of every defense
dollar.

released until the new fiscal
year.
"Because of the additional
FY09 funding, approximate-
ly 4,000 Sailors scheduled to
detach in the first quarter of
FY10 will receive orders soon,"
said Quinn.
"However, up to 14,000
Sailors slated to detach during
the first quarter of FY10 will
not receive orders until after 1
Oct."

Personnel Command, visit
www.navy.mil/local/npc.


Obama also recognized the
country's responsibility to take
care of its men and women in
uniform, as well as veterans.
He noted that his fiscal 2010
budget funds "increasing mili-
tary pay, building better fam-
ily housing and funding more
childcare and counseling to help
families cope with the stresses
of war."
In addition, big increases
will be devoted to providing
wounded warriors treatment
centers, case managers and bet-
ter medical care, he said. These
resources, he told the veter-


ans, will ensure wounded war-
riors get the care they need so
they "can recover and return
to where they want to be: with
their units."
Obama also noted the bil-
lions of dollars in the new bud-
get that will go toward treating
post-traumatic stress disorder
and traumatic brain injuries
that have become the defining
wounds of today's wars.
Increased funding will pro-
vide more treatment and men-
tal-health screening to reach
troops on the front lines and
more mobile and rural clin-


ics to reach veterans who have
returned home, he said.
"We are not going to aban-
don these American heroes,"
Obama said. "We will do right
by them."
America's commitment to its
troops will continue when they
become veterans, he said, not-
ing significant funding increas-
es for Department of Veterans
Affairs programs.
"Whether you left the service
in 2009 or 1949, we will ful-
fill our responsibility to deliver
the benefits and care that you
earned," the president promised


the veterans.
Even during tough economic
times, Obama said the country
can't shirk from its responsi-
bilities to service members and
veterans.
"Let me be clear," he said.
"America's commitments to its
veterans are not just lines in a
budget.
"They are bonds that are
sacred a sacred trust that we
are honor-bound to uphold."

NS Mayport Sponsors Recruits


By MC1 (SW/AW)
Heather Ewton
Deputy Publc. ," Officer
Naval Station Mayport is tak-
ing steps to shape the future of
the Navy by sponsoring newly-
formed Recruit Division 338 at
Recruit Training Center (RTC),
Great Lakes, Ill.
Division 338 resides in "Ship
#9, USS John F. Kennedy"
aboard the installation.
Three command represen-
tatives from Naval Station
Mayport traveled to Great
Lakes to take part in the official
commissioning ceremony of the
division that bears the name-
sake of Mayport's mighty car-
rier which decommissioned in
2006 and to introduce Mayport
as the command sponsor Aug.
17-18.
The individuals who repre-
sented Mayport during the ini-
tial trip to RTC Great Lakes
were Senior Chief Electronic
Technician (SS/SW) Mark
Prince, Chief Aviation
Boatswain's Mate Handling
(AW/SW) Lester Cruz and
Aviation Boatswain's Mate
Fuels 1t Class (AW/SW)
Raymond Valentin.
"It was a great opportunity
to get back to the place where
it all began. It brought back
so many memories to see the
recruits in the beginning stages
of their training and it was an
honor to answer their questions
and provide them with valuable
feedback to what lies in their
future," said Valentin.
The Recruit Division
Commanders (RDCs) showed
an overwhelming level of hos-
pitality and allowed Mayport
Sailors to get a first-hand view
of the training the recruits were
receiving. The representatives
followed the recruits to chow,
physical training and every
other aspect of training while
they visited and even had the
chance to fall back into forma-
tion and march in step with the
recruits. They also received a
tour of the multi-million dol-
lar, two-level, physical training
facility that boasts four indoor,
climate-controlled running
tracks and an indoor swimming
pool.
"This is my first time hav-
ing a command-sponsored divi-

the recruits of Division 338 during the commissioning ceremony held in "Ship #9, USS John E Kennedy Aug. 17. The command flag was donated to Division 338 by Naval
Station Mayport's ChiefMess and will be staffed while the recruits are information next to the Divisional guideon.


sion and I can already see the
impact Mayport is making in
the recruits opinions of their
decision to join the Navy,"
said RDC Chief Electronic
Technician (SW) Dan Trainor.
"Taking the time out of your
busy schedules to come here
for a site visit and to show
genuine concern for their suc-
cess through their training is
going to make the hard times
around here a bit more bearable
for them and knowing you are
behind them will make all the
difference in the world."
Later into the visit, Naval
Station Mayport Chief's Mess


presented an embroidered com-
mand flag to the recruits which
will be staffed proudly while
they are in formation next to the
division guideon and displayed
outside of the barracks when
the recruits are in house.
The Naval Station Mayport
First Class Petty Officer
Association presented the
recruits with a framed letter of
sponsorship and picture of the
Mayport basin.
In the official letter, Naval
Station Mayport Commanding
Officer, Capt. Aaron Bowman
noted, "I would like to person-
ally wish you the best of luck


and congratulate you on your
endeavor to join the ranks of
the finest men and women
our country has to offer. The
future of our Navy now lies in
your hands and Naval Station
Mayport proudly stands behind
you on your journey into the
fleet."
Division 338 took the pres-
ence of new personnel in their
training quarters with cau-
tion but as time went by they
relaxed a little and flooded the
representatives with questions
about the fleet, rates and quality
of life issues.
"It was good to see actual


Fleet Sailors here and it was
comforting knowing that the
Sailors outside of the gates of
RTC Great Lakes are normal
people," said Recruit Petty
Officer in Charge (RPOC),
Seaman Recruit April Holiness.
"I really enjoyed the visit from
Naval Station Mayport and feel
lucky to be one of the divisions
with an outside influence."
The command representa-
tives, including Bowman will
be returning to RTC Great
Lakes to take part in damage
control training and to attend
the graduation/pass-in-review
of Division 338 during the last


week in September.
This week, Naval Station
Mayport will send a pack-
age to the division which will
include motivating letters,
slide shows of the command
and t-shirts which the recruits
will wear during the Captain's
Cup Challenge. If you would
like to take part in this evolu-
tion, please contact CDMCM
(SW/AW) Deborah Davidson at

USS John L. Hall VBSS Team Put To Task


By Seaman
Daleth D. Darrington
USS John L. Hall Public. "
USS John L. Hall spent the
past week working with other
Navy warships in the Fleet
Irregular Warfare Training
to prepare for its upcoming
deployment.
The training includ-
ed Maritime Interdiction
Operations (MIO), counter
piracy, and other missions that
contribute to maritime security.
These exercises were conducted
as part of the ships' certification
for an independent deployment
in the upcoming year as well as
operations with NATO.
Hall's Visit, Board, Search
and Seizure (VBSS) team,
"Spartans," was at the center of
focus throughout the scenarios.
For three days, the Spartans
were tested through various
MIO phase situations. The
team was assessed on ability
to have great communication
skills, proper boarding, abilities
to set the security bubble, initial
security sweeps, interrogation
ability, Biometrics "information
gathering," normal ship clear-
ing abilities, and detaining and
handling.
When a situation involving a
foreign vessel of interest occurs
at sea, the ship sets special
phases called MIO phases rang-
ing from 0-to 3. When the MIO
phases are sounded specific per-
sonnel are prepared to react.
USNS Hunter, and the
NAWC 38, both U.S. train-
ing vessels, were the stage for
Hall's VBSS team. Manned
with both Navy, and civilian
personnel, the small crew was
not only the graders, but the
crew "in play."
The team participated in
four events including two com-
plaints, one noncompliant and
one compliant-turned-non-
compliant event. VBSS team
member Operations Specialist


Above, Set in Maritime Interdiction Operations (MIO) Phase 3,

ship. This is one offour boardings that the team made during the
Fleet Irregular Warfare Training conducted by John L. Hall. Right,
After successfully completing a scenario, the team returns to USS
John L. Hall, satisfied and ready for its next test.

Former 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 com-
mercial 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.

Official Lodging Program Brands




Navy Gateway Inns and Suites


From Fleet and Family Readiness Mar-
keting, CNIC, Millington Detachment
The Navy Gateway Inns and
Suites (NGIS) branding initia-
tive is underway, supporting
the fleet, fighter and family by
providing standardized, quality
facilities and lodging services
for a mobile military communi-
ty. Originally known as Visitors
Quarters, the Navy's official
lodging program has changed
significantly from its days when
it used to be part of the Housing
division.
"We want our custom-
ers to know our program by
its new name, Navy Gateway


Inns and Suites, which became
our brand name in 2006,"
said Tamara Davis, head,
Navy Lodging Policy and
Programs, Commander, Navy
Installations Command (CNIC).
"Throughout the years, we've
been called everything from
VQ, BOQ and BEQ to CBQ
and BH. Visitors Quarters and
Bachelor Housing were part of
the same division until 2005,
when the VQ program separat-
ed from Housing and became
a part of the CNIC Fleet
Readiness program. The separa-
tion has brought greater visibil-
ity to the lodging program."


While a few NGIS and
Housing operations still co-
exist, most NGIS operations are
now a separate operation and
maintain a separate front desk.
"Just look for the Navy
Gateway Inns and Suites logo
at a Navy installation to help
you locate our facilities," said
Davis. "With more than 24,000
rooms at 77 facilities world-
wide, NGIS is the primary lodg-
ing facility for travelers in a
TDY status, but don't forget to
check out space-available res-
ervations for your leisure and
vacation plans. Great prices and
consistently great service will


put NGIS at the top of the list
for your lodging needs."
The "Navy Gateway Inns and
Suites" program-wide brand-
ing initiative has been imple-
mented at more than 40 percent
of NGIS operations, with stan-
dardized furnishings, ameni-
ties and training that provide
customers with quality services
and accommodations.
Space-available reserva-
tions can be made 30 days
in advance, and are based on
availability. Military and civil-
ian travelers may make reser-
vations for NGIS operations
by using the www.dodlodg-


ing.net Web site or by calling
1-877-NAVYBED.
In February 2008, NGIS col-
laborated with the Fleet and
Family Readiness Training
Branch to standardize NGIS
employee development, such as
performance and behavior, to
align with the new NGIS brand.
"Standardized operating pro-
cedures for housekeeping, front
desk and maintenance staff and
other training initiatives have
been developed," said Davis.
"And, these training require-
ments will be incorporated into
the NGIS accreditation pro-
cess."


A thorough and detailed
accreditation process is manda-
tory for all NGIS operations,
and includes unannounced vali-
dation visits by a CNIC accredi-
tation team, as well as specific
performance standards for facil-
ities, services and fiscal man-
agement. The CNIC accredi-
tation team visits each naval
installation every two years to
evaluate NGIS operations and
determine the overall standards
of service being provided to all
customers.


Case Lot Sale Promises Huge Savings


By Tammy L. Moody
DeCA marketing and mass communications
specialist
Commissary customers can save
30 percent or more on their purchas-
es every day, but in September they
can save even more by shopping at a
worldwide case lot sale in their com-
munity.
As seen in the past, the Defense
Commissary Agency's worldwide case
lot sale promises record numbers of
customers taking advantage of sav-
ings of 50 percent or more on bulk-
sized products. These items range from
canned goods, beverages, toilet paper,
paper towels, produce, fresh meat, sea-
food, pet supplies, cleaning and laun-
dry products, and more.


"Commissaries offer the military
and their families great ways to extend
their purchasing power through the
case lot sales we hold in May and
September," said DeCA Director and


CEO Philip E. Sakowitz Jr. "It helps
them take advantage of their commis-
sary benefit even more."
The products at these events are nor-
mally seen stretched out in a section


of a commissary parking lot or inside
a store warehouse. Some 50 to 60
percent of the items are sold in "club
pack" product assortments similar to
the oversized or multiple products sold
at commercial warehouse club outlets.
"Case lot sales give our patrons
even more savings beyond our normal
great prices," said Charlie Dowlen,
DeCA promotions manager. "With
children going back to school, fami-
lies are looking for an opportunity to
save money. Case lot sales provide this
opportunity."
There are 404 items available for
this sale, and Dowlen expects the larg-
er commissaries stateside will offer an
additional 100 or more items. Although
smaller commissaries in the United

Fat Is Not All Bad, It Is Fuel For Your Body


By Lt. Col. Karen E.
Hawkins, DeCA dietitian,
and Lt. Col. Sarah Barnett
Fat in the diet has received a
rather bad rap for a long time,
yet it supplies energy and essen-
tial fatty acids that our bod-
ies need. Fats are also used as
building blocks for all the cells
in the body. Although saturated
and trans fats have been linked
to conditions like heart dis-
ease, cancer and stroke, certain
unsaturated fats can be healthful
along with providing flavor in
many dishes.
Monounsaturated and poly-
unsaturated fats are praised for
their ability to lower elevated
low-density lipoprotein ("bad"
cholesterol or LDL) levels but
only the mono oils seem to also
help keep high-density lipo-
protein ("good" cholesterol or


HDL) levels from dropping as
well. All oils have about 120
calories and 14 grams of fat
per tablespoon, with varying
amounts of monounsaturated,
polyunsaturated and saturated
fats. The type of fat found the
most of in oil helps determine
which category an oil falls into,
even though all oils contain all
three types of fats.
Oils high in monounsaturat-
ed fats include hazelnut, olive,
almond, mustard seed, canola
and peanut. Oils high in poly-
unsaturated fats include sesame,
corn, walnut, soy, grape seed
and safflower. Avoiding coco-
nut oil is often recommended
because it's high in saturated
fat.
When it comes to choosing
oils, here are some ideas to help
maximize health and taste:

Navy Continues Its Commitment To



Science Through Marine Mammal Studies


By Tracey Moriarty
( ofNaval Operations Environmen-
tal Readiness Division
The U.S. Navy and its part-
ners recently completed two
studies that monitored marine
mammal responses to military
exercises.
The studies were conducted
April 20-May 20 on the Atlantic
Undersea Test and Evaluation
Center (AUTEC) in northern
Bahamas, and July 15-July
28 on the Southern California
Offshore Range (SCORE) off
Coronado, Calif. Both studies
used small dart tags with sat-
ellite transmitters to track the
movements of whales before,
during and after unit-level
and larger battle group exer-
cises that included the use of
active sonar. Additional data is
being collected during biologi-
cal and behavioral studies of
marine mammals in the western
Mediterranean Sea project cur-
rently underway off the Spanish
Mediterranean coast and in the
Tyrrhenian Sea to the west of
the Italian mainland.
These studies are a part of
the Navy's research program
to understand the effects of
anthropogenic sound on marine
mammals. Follow-on studies
are expected to be conducted at
AUTEC and SCORE as well as
the Navy's other at-sea ranges
during the next five years.
Atlantic Undersea Test and
Evaluation Center, Bahamas
The AUTEC study took
place during a Submarine
Commanders Course (SCC)
and was performed by scientists
from Naval Undersea Warfare
Center (NUWC), the Bahamas
Marine Mammal Research
Organisation (BMMRO) and
the The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) Fisheries Southwest
Fisheries Science Center. David
Moretti, principal investigator
for NUWC's Marine Mammal
Monitoring Program, led the
Navy's effort to use AUTEC
hydrophones to help determine
behavior of whales on the range
with and without active sonar
present.
"The hydrophones are used to
listen for vocalizations from the
animals," Moretti said. "Over
the years we've been able to
detect those animals, send
trained observers to their loca-
tions and identify them. It has
enabled us to associate vocal-
izations with particular spe-
cies."
Moretti and his team moni-
tored a screen display of 93
hydrophones on the 500 nauti-
cal mile AUTEC range. When a
hydrophone detected vocaliza-
tions, the NUWC team would
contact the researchers waiting
on the University of Miami's
vessel, F.G. Walton Smith, and
give them an approximate loca-
tion of the whale. The research
team would then race to the
proposed location in hopes of
deploying satellite tags and for
photo-identification and biopsy
work.
John Durban and Bob Pitman
of NOAA Fisheries Southwest
Fisheries Science Center
worked with their Bahamian
colleagues on the tagging effort,
made difficult by unpredictable
weather conditions. This collab-
oration successfully deployed
nine satellite tags on three dif-
ferent species on and around the
AUTEC range, including three
Blaineville's beaked whales, a
Cuvier's beaked whale and five
sperm whales. Biopsy samples
were also collected to obtain
information on the genealogy,
population structure and diet of
the whales.
Scientists believe that beaked
whales are sensitive to sound.
"The mere presence of these
species on a Navy range is
counterintuitive to the percep-
tion of beaked whale reactions
to sonar," said Moretti. "Given
that this is an active Navy
range where sonar is used, you
wouldn't anticipate this species
to be present in this particular
location if you believed the
popular press."
Diane Claridge, director of
BMMRO, was already leading


a multi-year study to observe
the distribution, abundance
and population structure of
beaked whales in the northern
Bahamas. The timing of this
year's survey happened to over-

lap with the SCC.
"From working at AUTEC
for previous projects, we have
been photo identifying beaked
whales in that area," she said.
"The animals are moving in
and out of here, and one of
the things I'm interested in is
whether or not that movement
is related to the activities taking
place such as the SCC."
Though the team is still
reviewing the data for this
project, beaked whale moni-
toring during previous SCC
events has shown a decline in
acoustic detections of beaked
whales during active sonar
exercises. Beaked whale detec-
tions increased following the
end of the multi-day exercise,
leading to a hypothesis that
animals moved off the range
during exercises. However,
this hypothesis remains to be
tested, and the extent and dis-
tance of any movements remain
unknown.
"We believe they avoid the
sonar by moving off the range,
and they return after operations
are finished," said Moretti.
"We have opportunistic data
based on acoustics that sup-
ports that idea. Once they're
off the sensors we really don't
know where they go. I can't say
definitively that the animals that
leave the range are actually the
same animals that come back."
The AUTEC study hopes to
answer some of these questions.
"I think the most important
thing is that it's still very early,"
said Durban. "Like any study,
it's tempting to want results
straight away, but often the key
results are only obtained from
continued long-term monitor-
ing of abundance and move-
ment patterns. Only by having
that background monitoring
data can you detect any key
responses. So in some sense,
we've just started, but it's been
a good start."
Claridge agrees.
"We're really on the cusp
of what we're going to learn
because we're just getting into
the analysis of all survey data."
Researchers intend to return
to AUTEC prior to the SCC
event scheduled later this fall.
Southern California Offshore
Range
On the West Coast, the
SCORE Marine Mammal
Research Project involved col-
laboration between NUWC,
SCORE, NOAA Fisheries
Southwest Fisheries Science
Center, Cascadia Research
and Scripps Oceanographic
Institution. Whales on the
instrumented Southern
California Antisubmarine
Warfare Range (SOAR) are
monitored on 83 hydrophones
mounted on the ocean floor
at an average depth of 2,000
meters. Like AUTEC, the
phones are used to monitor an
area in excess of 500 square
nautical miles. Cetaceans are
photo-identified, biopsy sam-
pled and electronically moni-
tored to examine their response
to military exercises.
The on-water tagging effort
is led by Cascadia Research
Collective's Greg Schorr and


Erin Falcone.
"We are experiencing suc-
cess tagging species in this
region, especially beaked
whales beyond what we ini-
tially thought possible," said
Falcone. "The combined expe-
rience of collaborators on this
project, from this and other
regions, is allowing for continu-
ous improvement in our data
collection."
Eight animals were success-
fully tagged in eight days dur-
ing fieldwork in July, including
a Cuvier's beaked whale, bottle-
nose dolphin, Risso's dolphin
and five fin whales. These tags
supplement data collected from
one Cuvier's beaked whale
and three fin whales tagged at
SCORE in 2008.
Scripps High Frequency
Acoustic Recording Package
(HARP) buoys are used to
monitor locations off-range.
By combining these data from


the multi-sensor SOAR range,
satellite tags and HARP buoys,
the spatial and temporal distri-
bution, movements and vocal
behavior relative to active oper-
ations is being investigated.
"With each study, we're mov-
ing closer to answering the big
questions relating to health
of populations," said Moretti.
"We've made great leaps
in knowledge from when the
Navy started studying beaked
whales 10 years ago. Back
then we didn't even know what
they sounded like, let alone the
nature of their vocalizations.
We now have preliminary data
predicting how these animals
move in sites of intense study,
which we are beginning to
interpret in an effort to answer
those big questions."
When researchers return to
SCORE this fall, they will be
testing a new "fast and light"
weather dependent model for


studying beaked whales in off-
shore waters of the Pacific,
which frequently experience
high wind and swell condi-
tions. Beaked whale dives can
last more than an hour, with the
animals only surfacing briefly
and keeping a very low profile.
Because of this, any unfavor-
able weather compromises the
researchers' ability to locate
and tag the animals. The "fast
and light" model will mobilize
researchers more quickly in
favorable weather conditions to
increase the amount of data col-
lected.
Mediterranean Sea
Unlike the SCORE
and AUTEC studies, the
Mediterranean tests are being
conducted through controlled
exposure experiments, in which
the animals' behavior is mea-
sured before, during and after
specific sound exposures
planned by the researchers,

rather than sonar sounds gen-
erated during naval exercises.
Researchers for this project,
referred to as MED-09, include
representatives from the NATO
Undersea Research Centre,
Woods Hole Oceanographic
Institution (WHOI), Genoa
Aquarium and several other
international scientific and aca-
demic organizations.
The researchers are study-
ing whales with tags that can
record sound, animal orienta-
tion and depth measurements.
These "Dtags," short for "digi-
tal acoustic recording tags,"
were developed by WHOI and
are invaluable in the study of
beaked whales and other spe-
cies that dive deep and seldom
visit the sea surface. Dtags are
attached using non-invasive
suction cups.
"In MED-09, we're dupli-
cating the experiments from
2007's behavioral response
study at AUTEC," said Moretti.
"The difference is that unlike
the AUTEC animals, these ani-
mals are naOve to sonar. We
don't know if they'll behave the
same way as animals that are
accustomed to sonar exposure."
The scientific results expect-
ed from MED-09 will contrib-
ute to a greater understanding
of marine mammal biology
and oceanographic features in
the western Mediterranean.
The data will be provided
to local and regional govern-
ment, conservation and educa-
tional organizations to increase
public awareness and appre-
ciation of these areas and spe-
cies. Specialized information
obtained regarding the base-
line behavior of beaked whales
and their response to manmade
sounds will be integrated into
ongoing Navy environmental
planning for exercises and also
be made available to science
organizations worldwide to sup-
port their research efforts.
MED-09 began in late July
and lasts until early September.

Military Benefits From Foreign


By John J. Kruzel
American Forces Press Service
No training is more crucial to the
U.S. military than education in criti-
cal foreign languages and cultures, the
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
said Aug. 11.
Speaking at the Defense Language
Institute in Monterey, Calif., Navy
Adm. Mike Mullen told students
that their lessons in the languages of
Afghanistan and Iraq, for instance,
have potential to pay great dividends.
"As you go through these courses,
no matter how long, they are as impor-
tant as any undertaking that we have in
the United States military right now,"
he said. "And you really have great,
great potential for making a huge dif-
ference."


Mullen said the flexibility of lan-
guage training in the military under-
scores the state of global flux, he said,
adding that change is the iicn nor-
mal" on today's international climate.
"A few years ago we would not
have been focusing on, as we are now
... Dari or Urdu or Pashtu or Farsi or
Arabic or Hindi, and many other lan-
guages which are covered here," he
said. "But just that group speaks to the
extraordinary change that we've gone
through as an institution in our require-
ments."
While language is a necessary tool
for the exchange of information and
ideas, it also can be a window into
the culture of a foreign people. That's
why the language institute, the Defense
Department's flagship foreign culture


learning center, complements language
with additional training.
Mullen described the approach at the
Defense Language Institute as "cultur-
ally attuned."
"It is really important that we listen
to other people, that we listen to other
cultures, that we pay attention to how
they see their problems," he said. "I
call that seeing it through their eyes --
putting yourself in a position that actu-
ally focuses on what they are thinking
about, as opposed to how we think
about them, or how we think about,
in our Western ways, we might solve
their problems."
In addition to the lengthy and inten-
sive training regimens at the institute
-- with an average Dari course, for
example, running for 47 weeks and


SLanguag<

demanding devoted study outside the
classroom -- practicing language in
the field demands a large degree of
patience, Mullen said.
"Sometimes that takes more patience
than we would like to admit," he said.
"But in the long run, if you're able to
solve a problem using the approach
through other people when it's their
problem, the outcome is much more
positive. And it will be much more
long-lasting."
Mullen characterized students at the
institute as being "at the heart," both of
the military's public outreach efforts in
places like Afghanistan and within the
U.S. military amid the cultural reform
taking shape.
"You are at the heart of change, and
that's what I would call the external


STraining

effect," he said. "But what you're also
causing is change internally to our ser-
vices, because we're going to have to
figure out different ways to promote,
different ways to educate, different
ways to train, compared to what we've
done in the past."
The chairman said the burgeoning
linguists are at the forefront during a
critical juncture.
"As you go through these studies, or
these courses, you need to come away
from here absolutely the best possible
linguist, the best possible education
in terms of cultural sensitivity and
attuning to the needs of others because
you'll really make a difference down
the road," he said.


Requirements, Cost Control Drive Acquisition Reform


By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service
As Defense Department offi-
cials overhaul the Pentagon's
acquisition system, they're ask-
ing warfighters to define exact-
ly what they need, then hold-
ing industry to more fixed-price
contracts to develop those capa-
bilities, a senior defense offi-
cial told American Forces Press
Service.
Shay Assad, acting deputy
undersecretary of defense for
acquisition and technology,
cited two problems that have
long plagued the defense acqui-
sition system.
Expectations were set so high
- and contracts written accord-
ingly that systems took lon-
ger than expected to develop.
Meanwhile, costs escalated,
with the Defense Department
left to pick up the bulk of the
additional charges.


Both practices are coming to
a halt as the Pentagon changes
the way it does business. The
goal, Assad said, is to be more
responsive to warfighters' needs
and better stewards of taxpay-
er dollars. Warfighter require-
ments always will trump in the
acquisition effort, Assad said.
"We want our warfighters to
have the overwhelming tech-
nological superiority. We want
them to have every advantage
they can possible have," he
said. "We do not want this to be
a fair fight."
But too often in the
Pentagon's drive to provide that
superior capability, "we push
the technical envelope too far,"
he acknowledged.
"We are expecting too much,
instead of being realistic about
what we can achieve in the near
term and getting that to the
field," he said.


Defense Secretary Robert
M. Gates told Congress earlier
this year the Pentagon too often
makes the perfect the enemy of
the good. Gates said the depart-
ment needs to be more willing
to settle for the "75-percent
solution" that gets capability
into warfighters' hands faster,
than always waiting for a near-
perfect system.
Therefore, officials are look-
ing to the experts the warfight-
ers themselves to define exact-
ly what they need. "Bringing
warfighters into the decision-
making process that drives
acquisition is "a big change,"
Assad said.
"We're very focused on
working with the warfighters,
and there's a significant amount
of interchange," he added.
The dialog promotes a better
understanding of what capabili-
ties are available now and can


be delivered in the short-term,
and which requirements have
no present-day solutions and
will take longer to meet, Assad
said.
Warfighters get to identify,
for example, when the 75-per-
cent solution that's deliverable
within two years will work until
the 100-percent solution will be
ready in about seven years.
"Our warfighters some-
times get frustrated because of
the length of time it takes to
design, develop and field a sys-
tem," Assad said. "And when
we look back on it, the reason
that happens is because we
did not do as good a job as we
should have up front, defining
what we need, or making sure
that the technologies exist to
meet that requirement. So this
is a big step forward in being
more responsive to warfighters'
needs."


Meanwhile, the department
is keeping no-bid contracts to a
minimum to increase competi-
tion. And in awarding contracts,
it's helping to prevent cost
overruns through better up-front
cost estimates and more fixed-
price development programs.
Assad conceded that fixed-
price contracts aren't suitable
for every program, and that it
is nearly impossible to esti-
mate precisely how much every
development program will cost.
But getting a better handle
of costs at the beginning of
the development process will
reduce expensive surprises later
in the process, he explained.
"So when we say something
is going to cost $50 million, we
will be comfortable that it is
going to be in that range some-
where -- not $300 million," he
said.
Fixed-price contracts, with


payouts tied to performance,
will make contractors closer
partners in ensuring programs
proceed on schedule and on
budget, Assad said.
President Barack Obama
emphasized the importance
of these and other acquisi-
tion reforms under way dur-
ing an address last week at the
Veterans of Foreign Wars con-
vention in Phoenix.
"Every dollar wasted in our
defense budget is a dollar we
can't spend to care for our
troops or protect America or
prepare for the future," the pres-
ident said. "We cannot build the
21st-century military we need
and maintain the fiscal respon-
sibility that America demands
unless we fundamentally
reform the way our Defense
Department does business. It's a
simple fact."

Scams: Don't Fall For Easy Money


By Lt.j.g. David Welch
RLSO SE
Scenario One: So you're fresh
out of boot camp or you're a bald-
ing middle-aged man hitting that mid-
life crisis. Either way you are looking
for a sweet new ride to impress your
friends. You're cruising AutoTrader
one day when you see a $25,000 yel-
low Mustang GT listed for only $3500.
You think to yourself, "this must be
some kind of mistake, but man what
a deal." You send an e-mail to find
out if this is for real. Turns out, the
person selling it is going through a
divorce and looking to really get at her
husband. Thankfully, you are there to
help her, all you have to do is send a
$3500 money order to a friend of hers


(she doesn't want her husband to get
half that money after all) and the car
is all yours. This is a deal that you
can't just pass up, so an hour later and
the money order is on the way. Two
weeks later, you haven't heard a thing
so you contact the money order service
only to find out that the money order
was picked up and there is no way to
get it back.
Scenario Two: You arrive home and
you check your mail. A letter from
Award Grant informs you that you've
recently been selected for a cash grant.
Incredible! You don't even remem-
ber applying for a grant, but who are
you to tell them what to do? It seems
some benevolent benefactor that gives
billions away to charities and indi-


viduals has identified you as the kind
of good soul that deserves this free
money. You have in your hand a check
for $4,500.00, with the guarantee of
another, and all you have to do is cash
the check and pay the broker's "com-
mission" of $900.00 by going to their
website and providing your credit card
number.
You cash the check. You get
$4,500.00 in cash. You pay the
$900.00. No additional check arrives,
and your bank comes a calling. It
seems the check was bogus, and you're
on the hook for the $4,500.00 (plus
an additional $900 that you've mailed
away) not to mention the fact that
you've given your credit card number
and other personal information away.


The thing these scenarios have in
common is, quite obviously, that they
are scams. Despite the fact that you're
probably saying to yourself, "no one
would fall for that," people do every
day. Not all scams prey on an indi-
vidual's greed, many exploit sympathy.
One woman lost her entire life savings
paying what she believed to be legal
fees for the adoption of two children
whose mother, she was told, was dying
from AIDS. Neither the mother nor
the children existed, just the scam art-
ist.
If you were to ask anyone who has
fallen victim to one of these scams
whether they wish they had consulted
with a lawyer before they got sucked
in, the answer would invariably be


"YES!" The old adage, "If it sounds
too good to be true, it probably is,"
holds true today as much as it ever has.
So before you consider taking "free
money," consider the fact that as a ser-
vicemember you have the ability to
receive FREE LEGAL ADVICE. Stop
by any base with legal assistance and
run it by a JAG. We're always free,
and we want to help (it's job security
for us).

Keep Time On Your Side Dealing With Collectors


By Michael Renneisen
RLSO SE
Congress created the Fair
Debt Collection Practices Act,
15 USCA 1692 ("FDCPA"),
in order to eliminate unfair,
deceptive, and abusive practices
in the collection of consumer
debt. The FDCPA establishes
a list of guidelines which debt
collectors must adhere to and
also defines the rights of con-
sumer debtors. A consumer
debtor has the right to file a
claim against a debt collector,
such as a collection agency, in
state or federal court if they feel
that the rights provided to them
by the FDCPA have been vio-
lated.
In addressing collection agen-
cies and other debt collectors,
state and federal statutes of lim-
itation are an often overlooked
and potentially valuable tool,
especially when combined with
the FDCPA. A statute of limita-
tion is a law which limits the
length of time after an injury


has occurred, in which a person
may file a lawsuit to recover
for that injury. Although stat-
utes of limitation will vary from
state to state, most states leave a
three to ten year time frame in
which debt collectors may seek
a judicial remedy. For exam-
ple, Louisiana statutes limit a
debt collector's ability to seek a
judicial remedy for open ended
debts (i.e. credit cards) to three
years from the date the cause
of action accrued. Louisiana
statutes also establish a ten-year
statute of limitation on judicial
enforcement of contractual obli-
gations.
Federal courts have instituted
a general rule indicating that,
where a state's statute of limi-
tation has run, any attempt to
collect a debt through litigation
or the threat of litigation consti-
tutes a violation of the FDCPA.
In one case a plaintiff debtor
owed $150.00 to the defendant
collection agency. Without first
determining whether the debt


was time-barred by the state of
Alabama's statute of limitation,
the collection agency contacted
the debtor stating that if she did
not make payment it would file
a suit to recover the debt. The
debtor refused to comply with
the collection agency's requests.
At trial, the court dismissed
the collection agency's initial
claim on the debt for failure to
observe Alabama's statute of
limitation.
Following the court's deci-
sion, the debtor filed suit
against the collection agency
charging it with violating the
FDCPA. The basis of the com-
plaint stemmed from the col-
lection agency's lawsuit and
threats of litigation against the
debtor for a debt that was time
barred under Alabama's statute
of limitation. The court held
that filing a lawsuit to recover
time-barred debt violated the
FDCPA, ,which states "a col-
lector may not use unfair or
unconscionable means to col-


Community Property


Can Save Heirs


By Lt.j.g Brian Roach
RLSO SE
You probably don't think too
much about estate taxes the
ones you owe when you die.
But estate taxes are thinking
about you. Take your home
for instance. If it goes up in
value, you owe money on that
and when you die that balance
comes due, reducing what you
can leave your family. But you
can avoid the tax depending
on how you hold title to your
home. The magic words are
community property.
Let's start with the basics.
Under the federal tax code
every cent you earn is income.
Unless the code expressly says
otherwise, all your income is
taxable. When you buy some-
thing like a home the amount
you pay is called your basis.
Basis is critical because that's
the number used to calculate
your taxes. Here's an example.
Peter buys a condo for $10,000.
His basis the purchase price -
is $10,000. He sells the condo
for $15,000. $15,000 $10,000
equals $5,000. Peter owes
taxes on $5,000.
When you give property
away through your will things
are a bit different. The recipient
gets to adjust the basis of that
item to the fair market value


at the time he or she receives
it. We call this a stepped up
basis. Here's an example.
Clark buys a house for $10,000.
The house steadily goes up in
value and when Clark dies it's
worth $30,000. In his will,
Clark gives the house to Lois.
Lois immediately sells it for
$30,000. What is Lois' taxable
income from the sale? Since
the house was worth $30,000
when Lois got it, the basis was
adjusted to $30,000. $30,000 -
$30,000 is zero. So Lois does
not owe taxes.
When spouses own a house
together, the taxes are calculat-
ed using one of the above for-
mulas. You probably hold title
to your home as a joint tenant
with your spouse that's the
default. Under that approach,
when you die your surviving
spouse will get your half of the
house with the stepped up basis
like the example with Clark.
But your surviving spouse's
half will stay at the lower basis
like the example with Peter.
You can give your surviving
spouse a bigger tax savings
if you both hold title as com-
munity property. Here's how
it works. Bruce and Rachel
get married and buy a house for
$100,000 taking title as com-
munity property. The house


Money
goes up $50,000 in value and
is worth $150,000 when Bruce
dies. He leaves Rachel his half.
Since the fair market value of
Bruce's half was $75,000 when
he died, the basis on that half
becomes $75,000. The magic
of holding title as community
property is that Rachel's half
automatically gets the stepped
up basis too, making it $75,000.
It's called a double stepped up
basis and in the end Rachel gets
the house with a new basis of
$150,000. Now when Rachel
sells the house, the $50,000 that
she makes is tax free.
Double stepped up basis can
apply to many items in your
estate and an estate planning
attorney can help you find those
items and change title to com-
munity property if need be.
You won't net the savings in
your lifetime, but the family
you leave behind sure will.

DoD Authorizes Families


Can Return
From Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command5/th
FleetPublhc. -
U.S. Naval Forces Central Command
(NAVCENT), in cooperation with the American
Embassy in Bahrain, announced recently that
all family members of Department of Defense
(DoD) personnel will be allowed to return to
Bahrain, effective immediately.
"We are extremely pleased with the policy
change," said Vice Adm. Bill Gortney, command-
er, NAVCENT. "The return of family members
of all ages is an extremely important sign of the
security and stability in the region. It will also
greatly improve the quality of life for our service
members and DoD civilians."
"The Embassy and NAVCENT have put a lot
of work into ensuring the return of DoD children
to Bahrain. Their presence here helps strengthen
relations between our two countries. We are very
pleased about their return and look forward to
their positive contributions to the society and
economy of Bahrain," U.S. Ambassador J. Adam
Ereli said.
This decision marks the second step to change
a DoD policy that has been in place since July


To Bahrain
2004 when families were required to relocate
following security concerns. The return of adult
family members, announced late last year, was
the first step in a phased process to bring back
DoD family members of all ages to Bahrain.
Most NAVCENT personnel currently serve
12-month unaccompanied tours in Bahrain, with
some billets designated as 18-month tours. This
latest decision will authorize military members
to be stationed in Bahrain for accompanied tours
with their families for up to two years.
Operations in the NAVCENT Area of
Operations are focused on reassuring regional
partners of the United States' commitment to
security, which promotes stability and global
prosperity.

lect or attempt to collect any
debt." The court reasoned that
the collection agency's conduct
was unconscionable because
an unsophisticated consumer
would not be aware of the time-
bar defense and that even if
aware, the energy and resourc-
es spent on raising the defense
as well as the embarrassment
of going to court would cause
most consumers to submit to
the lawsuit.
It is important to note that
any activity which an unso-
phisticated consumer would
perceive as threatening litiga-
tion constitutes a violation of
the FDCPA if the debt is time-
barred. Thus, the collector need
not state the threat of litigation

expressly or in terms which
are immediately obvious to
everyone in order to constitute
"threatening language." The
threat need only have the "ten-
dency or capacity to deceive"
the "least sophisticated con-
sumer." Although the FDCPA
does not alleviate a debtor's
obligation to pay their credi-
tor, it does relieve him from the
threat of future litigation for
which records may no longer
exist, witnesses may have died
or moved, and for which his
recollection has faded.
Debt collectors often "forget"
to comply with the FDCPA, and
also may "forget" that the debts
they are seeking to collect are
time-barred by state statute. As


such, it is important that ser-
vicemembers are aware of the
rights and protections provid-
ed to them. In addition, state
and federal statutes may create
different statutes of limitation
for specific types of debt. For
example, federal statutes estab-
lish a two-year statute of limita-
tion for collection of cell phone
bills.
If you have been contacted
by a debt collector, or for more
information on your rights and
obligations concerning debt,
contact your local legal assis-
tance office at (904) 270-5445
ext. 3017. This article is not

"I walked away from the ceremony feeling
positive, and I had a better appreciation for the
program as a whole," said Hines. "The cama-
raderie here at NECC is second to none. From
day one I was welcomed and treated with respect
from the civilian and military personnel."
The PPP was originally designed for civilian
employees who were being separated as a result
of base closures and realignments. In the late
1980s a law was passed giving military spouses
preference for DoD employment.
According to Steven Wooley, deputy chief of
CARE's division of civilian personnel manage-
ment service, PPP and the CARE program have
given men and women an opportunity to succeed
along with their military spouses.
