A New Way


To Ge

By MCSN Alexandra Snow
National Naval Medical Center Public,
A policy change, effective Oct. 1, to the Navy's
Tuition Assistance (TA) program will not only
place monetary caps on the funds available to
Sailors, but also affect how and when the funds
are allocated.
TA provides funds to eligible active-duty per-
sonnel and enlisted Reservists, who are recalled
to active duty for 120 days or more, to further
their education on an off-duty basis, said Joyce
Murphy, Navy TA program manager at the Center
for Personal and Professional Development
(CPPD) in Virginia Beach, Va.
Currently, Sailors can receive tuition assis-
tance throughout the year. When the policy takes
effect, benefits will be allocated quarterly and
determined by available funds. In addition, appli-
cations for assistance will be processed on a
first-come-first-serve basis until the quarterly cap
is reached, according to NAVADMIN 245/10,
which was released July 21.
Sailors can still submit applications for TA ben-
efits at any time; however, applications will not
be processed more than 30 days prior to the start
of each quarter, said Murphy. TA pays for the cost
of tuition and mandatory fees directly associ-
ated with course instruction, but does not cover
the cost of applications, registration, parking,
textbooks or any living expenses accrued during
enrollment, Murphy added.
To apply for TA benefits, personnel must use
the Navy College Web site. They are also encour-


TA


aged to contact their nearest Navy College office
to discuss their educational goals with a coun-
selor and review college credits earned via Navy
training and experience, said Lt. Cmdr. Walter
Rogers, Voluntary Education Programs (VOLED)
analyst at CPPD in Virginia Beach, Va. Before
receiving the electronic assistance voucher that
allows them to enroll in college courses or cer-
tification programs, Sailors must submit their
online TA application for command approval,
said Rogers.
"Sailors may also access our Virtual Education
Center (VEC) for educational information, coun-
seling and TA processing," added Rogers.
Those who enroll in courses prior to apply-
ing for TA benefits will not be reimbursed, said
Rogers. Likewise, if a Sailor is approved for TA
benefits and chooses not to enroll in the course,
they must contact the Navy College offices or
VEC to cancel the voucher. If they do not, the
Sailor must reimburse the government in the
amount of the voucher.
"TA cannot be used congruently with Navy
College Fund benefits or other education pro-
grams such as the Advanced Education Voucher
and Graduate Education Voucher," said Murphy,
"[but] if a Sailor's tuition costs more than the TA
cap, then they can use their Montgomery GI Bill
benefits to [supplement] their TA."

tional programs and services offered by the Navy,

You Already Have The Gifts, Now Use Them


Chaplain Jonathan Black
COMDESRON 14
Antonio Stradivari made vio-
lins. He made cellos, violas,
and guitars as well, but let's


face it, who pays any attention
to those when a Stradivarius
Violin is on display? Stradivari
lived in Italy during the Age of
Enlightenment. He was bold,
he was creative, he was the
master. Even today his crafts-
manship is celebrated as the
pinnacle of achievement. His
violin called "The Hammer"
sold at Christie's auction for
$3.5 million in 2006; the record
for any instrument sold at pub-
lic auction.
Three hundred years later,
I can't help but reflect on the


words of the master as he pon-
ders the works of The Master:
"When any maestro holds
twixtt chin and hand a violin
of mine, he will be glad that
Stradivari lived. He will be
glad that Stradivari made vio-
lins, and made them of the
best...For while God gives
the maestro skill, I give them
instruments to play upon. God
has chosen me to help Him.
If my hand slacked I should
rob God, and make nothing...
and yet, God could not make
Antonio Stradivari's violins


without Antonio."
Today, however, many of
us believe that: "Whatever
God wants to happen will hap-
pen." We remove any personal
responsibility for our lives and
place it squarely on the shoul-
ders of the Almighty. But I
think we can learn something
from Stradivari. In many ways,
"God's will depends on man's
cooperation."
God has given us trees with
which to make violins, but it
took Antonio Stradivari to
create the "Hammer." God
has given us limestone with
which to build, but it took Sir
Christopher Wren to build St.
Paul's Cathedral. Only when
humanity chooses to work


can some of God's purposes
be fulfilled. God desires the
best for us and from us, but do
we demand the best from our-
selves?
I am confident that many of
the problems we face in life
simply require us to put our
hands to the plow, to place
the responsibility back on our
shoulders. It is the young boy
struggling in school who finally
asks his parents for a tutor. It is
the young woman who knows
her boyfriend is destructive
and ends the relationship. It is
the husband who gets counsel-
ing because his marriage to his
wife is failing while his mar-
riage to his job is thriving. It is
the woman who shuts down the


computer because she spends
more time engaging with her
3,000 friends on Facebook than
she does with her own children.
Isn't it time to put your own
hands to the plow?
We are blessed in the Navy.
For many of the problems we
face in life, the Navy has pro-
vided help. Fleet and Family
Support Center. Military
Onesource. NMCRS. The
USO. The DAPA. The SAPR.
And yes, even the Chaplain.
Just to name a few. But God
could not make Antonio
Stradivari's violins without
Antonio. God has a purpose for
your life. God wants the best
for you and from you. What are
you waiting for?


Duval Schools Host Open House For Students, Parents


Judy Cromartie
School Liaison Officer


Most parents understand the
importance of being actively
involved in their children's
education. But as children
get older, parents frequently
become less and less involved
in their schools. However,
research indicates that chil-
dren are more likely to have
a successful school year if the
parents are involved in their
children's school. One way to
ensure that is to make a connec-
tion with the school by attend-
ing Open House.
Duval schools will begin
their schedule of Open Houses
on August 20th. (For area
schools, see box.) And far from
one more useless activity in an
already over-scheduled life,
Open House can actually pro-
vide a wealth of information for
parents. This is a great oppor-
tunity for parents to meet their


children's teachers, the school
counselor, the principal, and
other staff. Whether your child
has one teacher or several, it is
an ideal opportunity to meet the
teachers) in one fell swoop. In
middle and high schools you'll
follow your children's sched-
ule by actually going to all of
their classes. In all grade levels
you'll find out important dates,
including field trips and major
class assignments; homework
and test schedules; and most
importantly how to contact the
teacher.
Open House IS NOT the time
to try to have a private confer-
ence with your child's teacher.
How could it be private with
several parents in line behind
you also wanting a chance to
say a few words about their
children to the teacher. As
someone who taught 27 years,
let me assure you that what par-
ents share with the teacher on
Open House night other than
a quick "Hello" or "I'm Jon's
mom" rarely "sticks" in the
teacher's mind. A high school
teacher, for example, may have
over 100 parents in attendance
and, that is, if they teacher the


core. Pity the poor physical
education teachers who teach
many more students than that.
Open House IS the night
to listen to what the teacher
wants to share with you about
the structure of the curriculum,
how the class will be organized,
the texts which will be used,
frequency of homework, test
schedules, make-up policies,
and, most importantly, how to
get in touch with the teacher.
Write all of this down! It will
make it much easier to remind
your child of an upcoming
deadline or the need to study for
those weekly spelling tests.
Now that you know the regi-
men, you'll be better prepared
to talk privately with the teach-
er about your concerns about
your child. And because you
have the teacher's preferred
method for contact, it will be
much easier for you to set up a
parent-teacher conference.
Active parenting takes time,
but the time you spend at an
Open House will help your chil-
dren be personally and academ-
ically successful. Your posi-
tive involvement and time, your
child's time, and your child's

SERMC's CPOA Serves With 'Humanity'


By MC2 Gary Granger Jr.
Navy Pubhc. ;-* Support Element Detachment South-
east
Navy Chiefs from the Southeast Regional
Maintenance Center (SERMC) Chief Petty
Officers Association (CPOA) volunteered for
a good cause and helped deconstruct a house
for Habitat for Humanity of Jacksonville,
locally known as HabiJax, July 30 through
August 13.
Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organiza-
tion that builds homes for people in need, was
established to help eradicate homelessness
throughout the country.
"This is actually the first time we've decon-
structed a house," said Stephanie Ransom,
Volunteer Manager for HabiJax. "We've
demolished a house before, but the difference
in this case is we are trying to salvage most of
the materials from the house."
The volunteers salavaged some of the hard-
wood flooring, cabinets, and door moldings
for use in the new house that will be built in
its place or in a new home on different project.
The Chiefs spent their time sledge hammer-
ing, prying, tearing and smashing the interior
and exterior of the house.
"The project not only builds a new home
for a family in need, but also generates a lot of


camaraderie amongst the Chiefs," said Chief
Fire Controlman Anthony McCloskey, a mem-
ber of SERMC's CPOA. "It shows a lot about
the tradition and values of the Chief Petty
Officers."
The SERMC Chief's were not the only vol-
unteers on hand, but a few qualified hom-
eowners from the HabiJax program helped out
as well.
"This is my first time working with any
Navy guys," said Leotyne Graham. "It's kind
of exciting to see how they really are and I'm
glad they're out here giving their time to the
community."
Qualification for the program is dependent
upon the level of the family's needs, willing-
ness to become a Habitat for Humanity partner
and ability to repay the non-profit, no-interest
loan.
"The Navy has been a huge supporter of
HabiJax for a long time," said Ransom. "They
are always on time and even sent a roster in
advance; not a lot of people do that."
Ransom also stated that HabiJax was very
excited about the Navy sending some of their
more experienced guys over for their very
first home deconstruction. With the help of the
SERMC Chiefs, the deconstruction was com-
pleted by Aug. 13.

Off-duty Mayport



Coast Guardsman



Rescues 2 Boaters
From U.S. Coast Guard Seventh District ... ..


An off-duty Coast Guardsman rescued two
boaters who were clinging to an aid-to-navigation
throughout the night near the entrance of Pablo
Creek at Mayport Saturday.
Rescued were Robert Richards, 31, and Amber
McMullen, 22. The Coast Guard was notified by
the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office that two boaters
were clinging to an aid-to-navigation in Pablo
Creek.
A 25-foot rescue boat crew from Coast Guard
Station Mayport launched but could not reach the
boaters due to shallow water depth.
Petty Officer 1st Class David Alred, a machin-
ery technician stationed aboard Coast Guard
Security Detachment Mayport, was fishing
aboard a flat bottom boat in the area and success-
fully rescued both boaters at approximately 7:13
a.m.


"1 was ishning near the Coast Guard station
when I heard the search and rescue alarm go off,"
said Alred. "I cruised down to the area to see
what was going on. I spoke with the coxswain
who asked asked me if I was able to get near the
light range due to the shallow water."
Alred said he was able to tie up his boat to the
aid-to-navigation where the boaters had been
waiting throughout the night.
"The boaters had climbed up the ladder and
attempted to notify passerby's with a light they
had," said Alred. "They said they had been there
since 2 a.m."
The boaters were ejected from their boat fol-
lowing a collision with an unknown object.
Alred transferred the boaters to the Coast
Guard rescue boat crew who delivered them to
awaiting EMS personnel ashore. The boaters
were reported to have minor injuries.

USS Carney


Keeps Trophy


After 3rd Win


By MC2(SW) Jacob Sippel
Navy Pubhlic, Support Element East
Detachment Southeast
Teams from around Mayport
gathered Aug. 18, to compete in the
third annual Naval Station Mayport
Damage Control (DC) Olympics held
at the base Fire Fighting School.
During the competition, teams par-
ticipated in nine events with indi-
vidual event scores being added up to
determine the overall winner. Events
included; pipe patching/plugging,
oscar relay, damage control written
test, quick reaction team test, shor-
ing, fire hose relay, CBR dress out,
P-100 rigging, and a fire hose "tug
a war."
"I think having these DC
Olympics is a great idea and really
brings out the best of all involved,"
stated Damage Controlman 1st Class
Kenny Recio, Repair Division
Leading Petty Officer on board USS
Samuel B. Roberts (FFG 58). "This
gives us a chance to compete with
other Sailors who are knowledge-
able in damage control and to test our
own knowledge and skills. We train
on this stuff all time and doing it in a
competition like this, is really a good
team builder and good for camarade-
rie."
Many teams had aspirations of
being the overall winner during
the third annual DC Olympics, but
a familiar team walked away with
the trophy once again. Team USS
Carney (DDG 64) won the competi-
tion for the third year in row making
them the only team to have ever won.
"This is a good time for com-
mands to showcase their training and
expertise in damage control," said
Carney's Command Master Chief
Alton Smith. "I have already told
my Sailors to strive to always be
the best they can be. During these
DC Olympics, you could really see
everyone trying to do just that."
These DC Olympics were spon-
sored by the Center for Naval
Engineering (CNE) and Destroyer
Squadron Fourteen (DESRON 14).
Carney was victorious over teams
from USS Samuel B. Roberts, USS
Simpson (FFG 56), USS Stephen
W. Groves (FFG 29), USS De Wert
(FFG 45), USS Halyburton (FFG
40), USS Farragut (DDG 99), USS

HSL-46 Det 6 Deploy On Mayport First


From HSL-46

"The Machines" of HSL-46
Detachment Six, deployed on USS
Vella Gulf (CG 72), is the first
Mayport-based helicopter detach-
ment to deploy in support of Ballistic
Missile Defense (BMD).
The detachment recently complet-
ed an extensive work-up cycle, which
included participation in Exercise
Joint Warrior. Joint Warrior is a
multi-national exercise that tests par-
ticipating units in all warfare areas.
Throughout the exercise, the ship/
air team gained valuable experience
as Detachment Six and Vella Gulf
went toe-to-toe with ships, subma-
rines, and aircraft from several coun-
tries including Great Britain, France,
The Netherlands, Spain, and Brazil.
Together, they prosecuted several sub-
marines in the narrow stretch of water
known as "the Minch" where the sub-
marines hold the tactical advantage.
Detachment aircrews also provided
radar coverage of Opposition Force
ships, allowing Vella Gulf to win the
simulated surface engagements portion
of the exercise.
During Joint Warrior, the
Eyjafjallaj6kull volcano in Iceland
erupted, prematurely interrupting the
exercise. The eruption grounded all

Submarine Squadron (HSL) 46.


aircraft in the area, stranded thousands
of international air travelers, and ended
the air portion of Joint Warrior. As
a result, Detachment Six was able


to take advantage of the early end
to the exercise by visiting Faslane,
Scotland, and the surrounding areas of
Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands.


Ballistic Missile Defense is an estab-
lished mission for the U.S. Navy, but
is uncharted territory for east coast
HSL detachments. West coast SH-60B


squadrons have supported the BMD
mission for several years, but this
deployment marks the first for any
HSMWINGLANT squadron.
Lt. Cmdr. Marcos Cantu,
Detachment Six Officer-In-Charge
said, "It is extremely exciting to
deploy in a non-traditional LAMPS
role. We look forward to learning a lot
and passing on our lessons learned to
future BMD detachments."
Providing radar coverage of the
upper atmosphere, Vella Gulf has the
ability to detect and neutralize a bal-
listic missile before it reaches its tar-
get. Detachment SIX and its SH-60B
Seahawk helicopter extend the ship's
surface (SUW) and submarine warfare
(ASW) abilities well beyond its nor-
mal levels. Along with SUW/ASW,
detachments add Search and Rescue,
Logistic, and Utility capabilities to the
Ticonderoga Class Cruiser.
"I am very proud of everyone on the
det. We worked very hard to prepare
for this deployment, and have a very
talented group of people. We all look
forward to successfully completing the
mission, and returning home to loved
ones," said Cantu.


HSL-46 Seagulls Hit Milestones Underway


By Lt. Matthew Headley
HSL-46DET3 PAO
The "Screamin' Seagulls"
of HSL-46 Detachment Three
recently completed a port visit
to Bahrain, which brought them
to the one third complete point
in their deployment. Although
they are only in the initial phase
of their seven-month cruise,
they have already flown more
than 300 hours.
During the port visit to
Bahrain, Aviation Structural
Mechanic 1st Class Marren's
family welcomed a new addi-
tion with the birth of their son,
Jesse James. Also that week,
Aviation Electronics Technician


2nd Class Thao was named the
Navy League Richmond "Sailor
of the Week" on board USS
Normandy.
Detachment Three also had
three members achieve their
Enlisted Aviation Warfare
Specialist (EAWS) qualifi-
cation: Air Warfare Rescue
3rd Class Smith, Air Warfare
Rescue 3rd Class Weikart, and


Aviation Machinist's Mate
Airman Whiteford. Since
departing in May, they had
three enlisted members advance
to the next rank following
the March exam: Aviation
Electronics Technician 3rd Class
Craven, Aviation Machinist's
Mate 2nd Class Nanney, and
Aviation Electronics Technician
1Pt Class Martindale. They have


also had two officer promo-
tions; Lt. Ross and Lt. Headley.
The Seagulls were able
to enjoy some time in the
Mediterranean Sea in early
June. Shortly after transiting
the Strait of Gibraltar, they took
part in an ASW exercise with
the French Navy and celebrated
the 100t Anniversary of French
Naval Aviation. Following the
5


exercise, they spent four days in
Toulon, France, where members
of the detachment were able to
see the local culture and relax
a bit before heading to 5t Fleet.
Since entering the 5th Fleet
AOR in mid-June, Det Three
has been working in tempera-
tures consistently reaching 1150
F and above. Aircrews have
gained valuable aeronautical


experience, completing mul-
tiple logistics runs to Bahrain
and Al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar.
On July 29, Lt. Hoopengardner
hit an aviation career milestone
by reaching 1,000 hours in the
SH-60B.
The Seagulls are looking for-
ward to further operations in 5t
Fleet as they approach he half-
way point in their deployment.

The Sullivans Spend Port


Time Helping Communities


By Ensign Alexander Brush
USS The Sulihvans PAO
USS The Sullivans, a ship
known for mission accomplish-
ment, is accomplishing a differ-
ent type of mission altogether:
forging long-lasting community
relations through a program
driven by a highly dedicated
and selfless sailor and his team
of equally big-hearted volun-
teers.
Operational Specialist
1st Class Brint Terrell is
the Community Relations
(COMREL) coordinator on
board The Sullivans and takes
particular pride in contributing
to the communities visited by
the ship and helping to foster
better futures for children from
all walks of life.
During the past two months,
The Sullivans has made a posi-
tive impact on local popula-
tions in the Arabian Gulf by
executing three noteworthy
COMREL projects. Although
The Sullivans has experienced
relatively limited port calls dur-
ing deployment, the thoughtful
volunteers onboard have made
the most out of each opportu-
nity.
On the evening of July 18, 11
volunteers departed the ship for
the Seaman Centre in Dubai,


UAE to take part in a project
that many of them know all too
well: busting rust and scraping
old paint.
The Seaman Centre is a non-
profit organization that caters
to Sailors pulling in and out of
port; it's a place to relax, watch
television, browse on the inter-
net, or get some exercise at the
gym.
The volunteers from The
Sullivans spent more than three
hours preparing the exterior of
the building for a fresh coat of
paint, a way of saying "thank
you" to an organization that
does so much for people in the
profession of the sea.
On June 17, a team of seven
led by Terrell kicked off a proj-
ect at the Children's Youth
Center in Manama, Bahrain
aimed at assisting children and
adults with a wide range of dis-
abilities.
Upon first arriving, The
Sullivans' COMREL team
spent several hours clearing
the center's playground field
of bricks, rocks, and rubble to
give the children a larger, safer
area to play. After finishing up
the hard work, it was time to
play members of the center in a
game of Wheelchair Basketball.
"It was sure a lot of fun, but


Sullivans Sailors and members of the Children's Youth Center tak-
ing a break in between some rounds of wheelchair basketball.


it was way more challenging
than I thought it would be,"
remarked Terrell.
The hot day culminated in a
dip at the pool, a relaxing and
refreshing end to a productive
and rewarding day.
On June 18, another
COMREL team of nine
Sullivans Sailors made the
short trip to the RIA Center for
Special Needs, also located in
Manama, Bahrain.
Following a short stretch and
introduction period, everyone
broke up into teams and worked
on various arts and crafts proj-
ects, including finger paint-
ing, gluing pictures, and work-
ing on spelling and handwrit-

ing. After an hour or so of this,
everyone got together in the
center's gymnasium for music
and dancing. The rest of the
day consisted of playing outside
at the center's top-notch play-
ground, photo shots, and lastly,
lunch for the children.
Lt. Andre Trofort, The
Sullivans' chaplain and a big
advocate of COMREL proj-
ects, said, "Harboring good-
will and establishing long last-
ing relationships between U.S.
Maritime Security Forces and
the local populations is our
goal; each one (COMREL) is so
different, they're so much fun
and rewarding they're our
contribution."

Navy Helos Provide Aid To Pakistani Flood Victims


By Ian Graham
Defense Media Activity
Members of the
Navy's Helicopter Mine
Countermeasures Squadron
(HM) 15 Detachment 2 spoke
on a DoDLive blogger's round-
table Aug. 19 to explain the ins
and outs of their mission.
As flooding continues to
plague Pakistan, the U.S.
Navy is providing helicopters
from HM 15 Detachment 2 in
Bahrain to carry supplies into
the Swat Valley.
To date, the United States
has pledged to provide approxi-
mately $76 million in assistance
to flood-affected populations
in Pakistan. There currently
are 22 U.S. military and civil-
ian aircraft in Pakistan in sup-
port of flood relief operations.
U.S. helicopters have evacuated
more than 5,000 people and
delivered more than 500,000
pounds of relief supplies. In
addition, U.S. military cargo
aircraft based in Afghanistan
have transported more than
268,000 pounds of interna-
tional aid from the Pakistan Air
Force's Central Flood Relief
Cell in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, to
other locations throughout the
country.
In the past five days, HM
15 and their MH-53E "Sea
Dragon" aircraft have been able
to evacuate more than 1,600
people and deliver more than
271,000 pounds of food and

U.S. Navy air crew assigned to Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron (HM) 15, Detachment
2, help Pakistani Soldiers load relief supplies aboard a U.S. Navy MH-53E Sea Dragon during
humanitarian relief efforts. HM-15 is embarked aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Peleliu
(LHA 5) supporting the Pakistan government and military with heavy lift capabilities in flooded
regions of Pakistan.


other relief supplies. The unit
has been at Ghazi Air Base for a
week, but rain and cloud cover
limited their ability to get to the
people in Swat.
Lt. Sean Snyder, one of HM
15's pilots, said the high alti-
tudes have been difficult to get
accustomed to. The aircraft
responds differently to thinner
air at higher altitudes, so con-
trolling the helicopter under a


full load has been harder than it
would be regularly.
"It's been a challenge getting
the mission done every day,"
said Snyder. "Had it been a sea-
level situation, we probably
could have doubled [the amount
of evacuations and deliveries]."
Although Snyder and Navy
Air Crewman 2nd Class Kevin
Strickhouser, a part of Snyder's
crew, only operate in one area,


they said it's been apparent as
they fly over the country how
widespread the damage is. The
fact that the United Nations is
pressing for more aid and more
organizations are rallying to
help the country is heartening,
said Snyder and Strickhouser.
HM 15 is doing fine moving
things but any more help would
be appreciated, because Swat is
only a small part of the prob-


lem, said Strickhouser.
"Anything anybody can send
won't be enough to stop the
suffering that people are going
through right now; I don't think
that there's anything that can be
done [to fix things right away],"
said Snyder. "The more they
can provide, so the assets can
be spread out to help the whole
country, would be very useful."
Snyder, his crew and the
other MH-53E crew from
HM 15, have all been work-
ing tirelessly to carry food to
people and get as many peo-
ple out of harm's way as pos-
sible. Usually about five trips
to and from the valley can be
made daily by each aircraft,
Snyder said.
And though concerns have
been raised that the Taliban
in the Swat Valley may some-
how be using the flood to their
advantage, either by helping
people as a recruitment tool or
planning to attack U.S. equip-
ment, the two have seen nothing
firsthand to indicate a problem.
"Other than what we're tak-
ing in and what the Pakistani
government is providing, I
haven't seen any other groups
doing any assistance," Snyder
said, adding that he's seen noth-
ing of the Taliban firsthand or
anecdotally. "People from the
World Food Program are here,
but I haven't seen anything
else."
Strickhouser added that there


has been little disruption of any
kind to missions beyond the bad
weather on their arrival. The
Pakistani Army is providing
security and has landing zones
prepared for U.S. aircraft, and
generally the people waiting for
aid have been orderly outside
the established landing perim-
eter.
"We're only there for a short
period of time before they take
off, so they don't see a lot on
the ground throughout the day,"
said Strickhouser. "But there
haven't been any problems. The
only people who approach the
aircraft are there to get the food
we're bringing, and they take it
to the others outside our perim-
eter."
Whether the United States
will provide more aid, or ask
the crews at Ghazi to expand
their reach, is yet to be deter-
mined. Snyder said the U.S.
State Department, the U.S.
Agency for International
Development and a collection
of non-government organiza-
tions are in Pakistan trying to
help nationwide. Ultimately,
it's a decision their leader-
ship needs to make if asked
by Pakistani leadership, said
Snyder and Strickhouser.
"The Pakistani government
determines where they need
U.S. aid, and then the United
States decides if they're able to
help there with the equipment
they have," Strickhouser said.

area military complex and the
largest U.S. Navy DEFY pro-
gram in the world, said DEFY
Operations Officer David
Vanneste, who was conducting
a site visit.
Started in 1993, the DEFY
program is in its 17th year of
providing mentorship, charac-
ter development, drug education
and essential life skills to mili-
tary kids. The Naval Air Station
(NAS) Jacksonville program,
which began in 1996, offers
a learning and activity inten-
sive five-day overnight camp-


ing experience, which was held
this year at Camp McConnell, a
YMCA campground. In addi-
tion to classroom learning and
arts and crafts, attendees were
able to participate in swimming,
archery, horseback riding, rock
climbing, field and court sports
and a high ropes course.
"Every activity that we did
had a life lesson to impart
upon the kids," said DEFY
Mentor Information Systems
Technician 2nd Class Derek
Saylor, of Navy Region
Southeast Reserve Component
Command. "The horses were a
real self confidence boost, the
archery built patience... and the
rock wall and the high ropes
taught them goal setting and
persistence."
NAS Jacksonville's DEFY
Program Coordinator, Chief
Aviation Electrician's Mate
Shawn Diggs thought his first
year heading the program went


very well.
"I think this [DEFY] is a
beautiful program, it's a real-
ly educational program for the
youths here," said Diggs.
Diggs noted how impressed
he was with the knowledge
and tools learned by the chil-
dren as it pertained to resist-
ing peer pressure and avoiding
destructive behaviors, but he
most enjoyed watching the kids
"come as strangers and leave as
friends."
Making the largest DEFY
summer camp run smoothly
requires an organized, high
energy and equally large vol-
unteer effort. Twenty-four men-
tors, who are usually military
or DoD civilian volunteers, and
11 junior mentors were placed
with groups of kids whom they
remained with throughout the
camp.
Alan Lefan, NAS
Jacksonville DEFY mentor


coordinator, now in his fifth
year of participation, is proud
of the volunteer's ability to
"change kids' lives," including
that of his daughter who attend-
ed camp for the first time this
year.
"She can't wait to come
back," said Lefan. "And I will
be here as long as they'll have
me."
Kuria Spindler, NAS
Jacksonville DEFY junior


mentor coordinator, feels her
upbringing has left her ideally
suited for the program.
"I was a military child, so I
do know what they have to deal
with. The fact that they move
around, and have to make new
friends and deal with the peer
pressure," said Spindler.
Each DEFY chapter is man-
aged by a host command.
Patrol Squadron (VP) 30 hosts
the NAS Jacksonville chap-


ter, which is also their home
base and they will continue to
host DEFY events throughout
the year and leading up to the
annual summer camp in August
2011. Registering your children
for DEFY is easy, and early
registration is encouraged and
occurs throughout the year. To

Navy Transitioning Admin Message



Delivery To Email, Web Applications


From Navy Cyber Forces Public. ;-

The Navy announced in
ALCOM 121/10 that it will
be phasing out the use of the
Defense Message System
(DMS) for a majority of com-
mand administrative commu-
nications, known as official
information exchange (OIX),
and adopting new methods of
delivery by fiscal year 2011.
The project is being led
by Navy Cyber Forces
(CYBERFOR), with a goal of
increasing efficiency and sav-
ing costs by using widely-used
communication tools, such as
unclassified email and other
Web-based applications.
The naval messaging format
that has been in use for many
years has become expensive
and time consuming, said James
McCarty, CYBERFOR's naval


message assistant program
manager.
"The transition to send-
ing messages over email and
Web-based communications has
already begun, and will sim-
plify communicating routine,
non-'command and control'
messages, such as permanent
change of station orders," said
McCarty. "We're using exist-
ing architecture the hardware
and software associated with
Navy's computer networks and
eliminating redundant architec-
ture associated with specialized
messaging programs."
The process of eliminating


DMS for organizational mes-
saging is being implemented
in a phased approach to ensure
critical mission requirements
are maintained, and a smooth
transition on all the Navy's net-
works, including Navy/Marine
Corps Intranet, One-Net (over-
seas), IT-21 (shipboard) and the
legacy networks. Classified and
command and control messages
will continue to be sent through
DMS.
While acknowledging there
are a few issues the program
staff is working to solve, Nancy
Rantanen, CYBERFOR's naval
messaging program manager,


said the transition should be
seamless to most users.
"Everyone uses email, so
we'll just be using it for an
additional function," said
Rantanen. "Challenges we're
addressing include the band-
width issue associated with
shipboard email use, but we're
looking at ways to mitigate
those and provide all users with
the ability to access their mes-
sages in a timely manner."
Rantanen emphasized the
importance of senior leader
engagement to ensure com-
mands initiate registration.
"Many commanding offi-
cers are already on board and
have led the way for their com-
mands to operate in the new
system," said Rantanen. "Once
commands complete the set up
requirements, many of them


can start sending messages via
email right away."
In August 2010, the larg-
est user of unclassified mes-
saging the Navy Personnel
Command began migrating
from DMS to a new system
called Government Official
Information Exchange System
(GOES), which is Web-based.
"We're one of the big-
gest generators of messages
in the Navy," said Capt. Brian
Wenger, Navy Personnel
Command assistant command-
er for business operations and
comptroller. "Since the (DMS)
program was going away, we
had to develop a solution that
would have the least impact on
the business rules for both those
generating messages and the
commands receiving them."
GOES also supports Sailors


stationed in non-Navy billets,
such as those in individual aug-
mentee assignments, and will
continue to deliver information
to BUPERS On-Line.
"The Navy message has been
a staple for many a Sailor for
quite some time," said McCarty.
"This will definitely feel like
a culture shift to some, but the
reality is that this is a very min-
ute procedural change that will
benefit all hands."

OIX transition, or to register for
the command email program,

Card can access the portal page

'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Feedback Sought From Spouses


By Army Sgt. 1st Class
Michael J. Carden
American Forces Press Service
Pentagon officials mailed out
150,000 new "Don't Ask, Don't
Tell" surveys, this time seek-
ing input from military spouses
about the potential repeal of the
law that bars gay men and les-
bians from serving openly, offi-
cials said.
"We understand the inextri-
cable link between the families,
servicemembers and readiness,
and this survey is a way to try
to better understand that," Army
Gen. Carter F Ham, U.S. Army
Europe commander, said in a
recent Pentagon Channel inter-
view.
Ham and Jeh C. Johnson, the
Pentagon's top lawyer, were
appointed by Defense Secretary
Robert M. Gates to head a spe-
cial review panel that's studying


the possible implications on the
military should Congress decide
to repeal the current "Don't
Ask, Don't Tell" law and allow
gays and lesbians to serve open-
ly.
"What we're trying to gauge
is an assessment that if this law
is repealed, and this 'Don't Ask,
Don't Tell' policy is changed,
what will that mean to our fami-
lies?" Ham said. "By better
understanding the impacts of
possible repeal, we'll be able to
craft policies, procedures, edu-
cation and training to address
those issues."
The group has been meet-
ing with troops and family
members since February. The
surveys are important to the
panel's research, Ham added,
because time and financial
constraints preclude meeting
with every servicemember and


spouse.
The surveys give the panel
a baseline of information that
best represents the military's
2.2 million servicemembers and
their families, the general said.
Last month, 400,000 surveys
were e-mailed to active duty
and reserve-component troops
throughout the force. The dead-
line for their response was Aug.
15.
The spouse survey is some-
what different from the one
taken by the servicemembers,
Ham said, noting the spouse
survey is not as lengthy or com-
prehensive, and it "zeroes in"
on family readiness.
Also, he added, the spouse
survey is a hard-copy form,
rather than the digital e-mail
form troops received. It should
take spouses about 15 to 20
minutes to complete, he said.


"We know there's a very
real connection between fam-
ily readiness and military readi-
ness," Ham said. "We want to
make sure we understand what
that dynamic might be if the
'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy
were to change."
The spouse survey responses,
like those of the servicemem-
bers' survey, are confidential,
the general said.
Ham emphasized that the
surveys and responses for both
groups can't be traced. The
company managing the survey
distribution and results-gather-
ing is not a Defense Department
organization and "does not have
access to personally identifiable
information to military mem-
bers," he explained.
Feedback from military
spouses is an important aspect
in the review, Ham said. The


panel wants to know if spouses
will be less likely to support
their servicemember continuing
his service if the law changes,
Ham said.
"We know for our mar-
ried servicemembers, the most
important influence on wheth-
er or not that servicemember
decides to continue his ser-
vice is his spouse," he said.
"So we need to know what the
effects would be if the law was
changed."
The spouse surveys were
mailed to 80,000 reserve-com-
ponent and 70,000 active duty
spouses. The spouses will have
a little more than 30 days to
complete and return their sur-
veys, Ham said.
For spouses who weren't
selected, but want to offer their
opinion on the potential impact
of repeal, Ham suggested using


the online inbox at http://www.
defense.gov/dadt. The site is
not confidential and requires a
military common access card
to log on. The online inbox
will be available until Aug. 30.
This tool will allow anyone
who didn't receive the survey
to offer feedback and remain
anonymous.
"We know that for our mar-
ried servicemembers, their
spouses' views, the spouses'
satisfaction with the quality of
service and the family readiness
directly attributes to military
readiness," the general said.
"Secretary Gates was focused at
the very start to make sure that
we understood what impact a
possible repeal would mean to
our family members."

Redesigned FOCUS Provides More Resources


From Bureau ofMedicine and
Public,.
The Bureau of Medicine and
Surgery (BUMED) redesigned
the Web site for Project FOCUS
(Families OverComing Under
Stress) to better serve military
families trying to cope with
stress associated with multiple
overseas deployments.
The dramatically redesigned
site, www.focusproject.org,
offers family friendly informa-
tion about FOCUS that will
benefit military families. The
Web site's homepage offers
visitors a video describing the
FOCUS program and its ben-
efits while also offering infor-
mation about the program's


history, mission and resiliency
training programs.
"We hope that families will
explore our new Web site and
take advantage of this pro-
gram," said Kirsten Woodward,
BUMED Family Programs
Division director. "We are
pleased to help our family read-
iness and preparedness through
this unprecedented program that
Navy Medicine offers."
FOCUS is an eight-week,


skill-based, trainer-led, inter-
vention that addresses diffi-
culties that families may have
when facing the challenges
of multiple deployments and
parental combat-related psy-
chological and physical health
problems. The program pro-
vides structured activities to
bridge gaps in shared family
understanding that may follow
stressful experiences and sep-
arations. FOCUS uses family


training techniques to highlight
areas of strength and resilience
in the family and promote fam-
ily growth to help address daily
challenges.
The Web site contains infor-
mation about common chal-
lenges families face before,
during, and after deployments.
It also contains resources for
parents, children, and service
providers on how to deal with
the associated stress. The site
offers tailored local information
for each FOCUS site nation-
wide and testimonials from for-
mer FOCUS participants that
help describe what families
could expect when they enroll
in FOCUS resiliency train-


ing. According to Woodward,
military families can sign up
for a quarterly newsletter and
should be able to use the web-
site to access FOCUS World
in the coming weeks. FOCUS
World is an interactive Web site
experience that teaches fami-
lies resiliency training skills.
Visitors also have the opportu-
nity to sign up for the FOCUS
quarterly newsletter to help
them maintain awareness of the
unique needs of military chil-
dren and families.
"Announcements about
FOCUS World launch will fol-
low in the next few weeks,"
said Woodward. "We look for-
ward to growing this site in the


future and welcome any feed-
back from our families on how
we can serve them better."
The Bureau of Medicine
and Surgery developed Project
FOCUS to serve the grow-
ing need of military families
and children in coping with

Stress Resilience Essential In High-Tempo Environment


By Lt. Justin Top
NH Jax Chaplain
Wouldn't it be nice if your
job required you to sit on a
beach every day sipping some
exotic drink while relaxing in
the sun? Keep dreaming! You
probably have to work long
stressful hours to compensate
for manning shortages and con-
stant pushes to "do more with
less." You also likely have
to deal with the frustration of
working in a bureaucracy, with
all the red tape and inefficiency.
For most of us, the dream of
a stress free life will probably
stay as just a dream for a long
time.
Stress is a normal part of
life. A little is good for us, but
often we deal with more than
is healthy. Unfortunately it is
sometimes difficult to reduce
stressors in our lives. As a result
we may just try to tough it out
and carry the extra load. The
problem is that if you carry
your load (even if it is not over-
whelming) for too long with-
out some sort of rest, eventually
you will begin to break down
emotionally. Whether the stress
comes from difficult life events
(such as relationship problems,
death of a loved one, or work
related issues), burnout (from
persistent stress in the daily
routine), or from compassion
fatigue (from constantly pour-
ing yourself into others emo-
tionally), it can have negative
effects and diminish your level
of functioning.
Many people deal with stress
by distracting themselves from
it. It is common for people to
turn to alcohol, drugs, gam-

bling, sexual diversions,
unhealthy eating habits, or other
damaging behavior to cope with
stress. Unfortunately these do
not alleviate stress. They sim-
ply postpone it and may actu-
ally increase the stress.
While there are many healthy
and effective ways to deal with
stress in the moment when it
hits hardest, it is much more
effective to start dealing with
stress before it hits. Since you
can plan on stress being part
of your life, why not adjust
your lifestyle to prepare for
stress? In much the same way
that physical training helps you
to prepare physically for run-
ning a marathon, it is also pos-
sible to get yourself "in shape"
emotionally to increase mental
endurance and emotional stam-
ina. Here are four evidence
based lifestyle changes you can
make to increase your stress
resilience:
Health- Everyone knows
that exercising can help reduce
stress, but it also can increase
your capacity to carry stress
and still feel good. In addition
to exercise, other healthy prac-
tices such as a nutritious diet,
good sleep hygiene, and avoid-
ance of addictive chemicals can
improve physical and psycho-
logical endurance, and generate
a feeling of wellbeing. We all
know the things we should be


doing to be healthier. The chal-
lenge is getting the motivation
to do them. You can start by
making simple goals that can
increase your momentum such
as "Eat breakfast," or "Take the
stairs instead of the elevator."
As you see success with your
small goals, gradually make
them bigger.
Humor- Sometimes laugh-
ter really is the best medicine.
Studies have shown that laugh-
ter can boost the immune and
circulatory systems, improve
digestion, stimulate the release
of endorphins, relax muscles,
relieve pain, balance blood
pressure, and improve mental
functioning. It also relieves
stress, improves sleep, uplifts
your attitude, strengthens rela-
tionships, and makes you feel
good. Smiling has many of the
same effects as laughter, and
they both work even if you are
faking it! Increase the amount
of laughter in your day and your
ability to deal with stress will
improve.
Spirituality- Studies show
that people who have strong
spirituality are healthier, happi-
er, more confident, do better in
school and work, and are more
resilient to stress. Spirituality is
not necessarily the same as reli-
gion. Religion can be a great
source of spirituality, but there
are other ways to be a spiritual

person. Spirituality helps you
find meaning and direction in
life. It creates a sense of awe
and appreciation in life and
connection to something greater
than yourself. In a world where
we are surrounded by noise,
it is vital to take time to quiet
your mind so that you can focus
on what is important.
Self Care- Used here, "self


care" simply means intention-
ally making time to take care
of yourself emotionally. This
may include prayer/medita-
tion, yoga, guided relaxation,
or other types of therapeutic
relaxation. Or it may be some-
thing as simple as taking walks,
stargazing, or spending time in
nature. The important thing is
that you create rituals that will


help you recharge and refo-
cus. Make them a regular part
of your lifestyle, and you will
build your stress resilience.
The NHJAX Stress Control
Team offers stress resilience
training and has numerous
tools and resources to help
build stress coping skills. For
more information, contact NH
Jax Pastoral Care at 542-7532.

The USO and RocketLife,
have partnered to deliver a
heart-warming opportunity
for the men and women of the
armed forces and their fami-
lies. The Personal Photo Book
program enables troops serv-
ing abroad and their families
to create 20-page personal
photo books and ship them
to any APO/FPO address for
free. These full-color, custom-
ized photo books are small
enough to fit in a soldier's
cargo pockets yet can hold more
than 60 photos of loved ones.
RocketLife prints the books for
free, and the USO pays for the
shipping. To get started, visit

The U.S. Department
of Veterans Affairs has
announced the launch of its


new and improved online
form, "Application for Health
Benefits," which will make it
easier and faster for veterans
to apply for their health care
benefits. This revised online
application form (10-10EZ)
provides enhanced navigation
features that make it easier and
faster for veterans to use. The
new version also allows veter-
ans to save a copy of the com-
pleted form for their personal
records. The most significant
enhancement allows veterans
to save their application to their
local desktop and return to the
application at any time without
having to start over. Previously,
veterans had to complete the
form in a single session. This
updated online form, along with
the revised VA Form 10-10EZ,
reduces the collection of infor-
mation from veterans by elimi-
nating some questions. In addi-
tion, there are minor changes to


simplify the wording of ques-
tions and provide clarity in the
instructions. Further enhance-
ments to the online applica-
tion are expected to be deliv-
ered in increments throughout
2010. Veterans may complete
or download the 10-10EZ form
at the VA health eligibility web-
site at https://www.1010ez.
med.va.gov/sec/vha/1010ez/.
Veterans may also contact the
VA at 1 (877) 222-VETS (8387)
or visit the VA health eligibility
website at www.va.gov/healthe-
ligibility.
United Through Reading pro-
gram makes it possible to share

The Mayport Center and NAS

gone on deployment. It is a
great way to make them smile

Guardian ad Litem
Be the voice for children
abused, neglected, or aban-
doned. These children have no
ability to participate in deci-
sions affecting their lives. When
children are removed from their
homes, the courts can appoint
a special advocate to make
sure that the best interests of
the child is given appropriate
consideration. This advocate is
known as a Guardian ad Litem.
In the 4th Judicial Circuit,
which includes Clay, Duval
and Nassau Counties, there are
more than 2,000 children who
need an advocate to help them
navigate the Dependency sys-
tem. As we build our volunteer


base we are asking members
of our community to consid-
er being a Guardian as Litem.
These guardians do not provide
direct care for the children;
the guardians ad litem visit the
child at least once per month,
interview family members,
gather information from medi-
cal, mental health, and educa-
tion professionals, and attend
court hearings to ensure the
best interests of the children are
maintained. The work is com-
pelling. To become a Guardian
ad Litem, candidates need a
compassionate heart, be at least
19 years old, complete 30 hours
of initial training and undergo
a background check. The pro-
cess begins with a screen-
ing interview so you can learn
more about this opportunity to
make a difference in the life
of a child. If this kind of vol-
unteer opportunity sounds like
something you would like to
participate in, please visit the
Guardian ad Litem website,

call 904-630-1200 to schedule a

Sept. 13, 9-11 a.m., What
About The Kids Workshop,
FFSC Room 607


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, 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.
Sept. 14, 1-3:30 p.m.,
Overseas Living, FFSC, Room

Overseas Living is a class

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.

'Are You Prepared For A Disaster?'



Commissaries Ask Patrons To Stock Up


By Kevin L. Robinson
DeCA public speciahlst
Weather forecasters are pre-
dicting an unusually active
hurricane season for the U.S.
Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
"Are you prepared?"
That's the question the
Defense Commissary Agency is
asking its customers as it advis-
es them to make sure they have
enough supplies to withstand a
potential disaster.
"Often, we get lulled into a
false sense of 'this won't hap-
pen to us' when it comes to
being prepared for the worst,"
said Tom Milks, DeCA dep-
uty director and chief operat-
ing officer. "But the lessons
learned from the devastation of
Hurricane Katrina still hold true
five years later.
"We are asking our custom-
ers to check the emergency sup-
plies in their households so that
they're ready for any event -
whether it's a natural or man-
made disaster," he said. "As
they take stock, we want them


to remember that most of what
they'll need is available at their
commissary at savings of 30
percent or more."
Milks said the commissary
is a good place to start when
it comes to planning for the
expected graduation parties
and summertime barbecues -
or the unexpected. Although
the Atlantic hurricane sea-
son begins June 1, Mother


Nature has already wreaked
havoc inland with devastating
tornadoes in Oklahoma and
Mississippi and severe flooding
in Tennessee, Mississippi and
Kentucky.
DeCA's 2010 summer club
pack program running from
July 1 to Sept. 30 features
products that meet the seasonal
needs of commissary custom-
ers. The program also includes


products appropriate for hur-
ricane and tornado prepared-
ness: food and beverages that
don't require refrigeration,
flashlights, lanterns and emer-
gency candles. This section will
be displayed in stores an addi-
tional month, through Oct. 31.
Commissaries are also offering
summer water truckload events
to help customers stock up.
"Club packs are popular
because they allow customers to
buy items in bulk sizes similar
to what they'd see in a com-
mercial warehouse club outlet,"
said Charlie Dowlen, DeCA
promotions manager. "From
past experience we've seen peo-
ple use club packs to prepare
for bad weather events."
With the coming of the
Atlantic hurricane season, the
National Weather Service,
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration,
and the Federal Emergency
Management Agency recom-
mend creating a disaster supply
kit http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/


HAW2/english/disaster_preven-
tion.shtml that should include
the following items:
*Water at least 1 gallon
daily per person for three to
seven days.
*Food nonperishable pack-
aged or canned food and juices,
foods for infants or the elderly,
snack foods, nonelectric can
opener, cooking tools, fuel,
paper plates and plastic utensils.
*Blankets and pillows.
*Clothing seasonal, rain
gear and sturdy shoes.
*First aid kit, medicines and
prescription drugs.
*Special items for babies
and elderly.
*Toiletries, hygiene items and
moisture wipes.
*Flashlight and batteries.
*Radio battery operated and
NOAA weather radio.
*Telephones fully charged
cell phone with extra battery
and a traditional (not cordless)
telephone set.
*Cash (with some small bills)
and credit cards banks and


ATMs may not be available for
extended periods.
*Important documents in a
waterproof container or water-
tight resealable bag.
*Tools.
*Vehicle fuel tanks filled.
*Pet care items proper
identification, immunization
records, medications, ample
supply of food and water, a car-
rier or cage, and muzzle and
leash.

Look For Less Sodium. More Potassium In Diet


By Karen Hawkins
DeCA dietitian
Most of us know that eating too much sodium is
not good for us, as doing so may increase the risk
for high blood pressure, which can lead to a variety
of diseases. Nearly one in three U.S. adults have
high blood pressure and almost as many have pre-
hypertension or slightly elevated blood pressure.
Not sure what your blood pressure is or haven't had
it checked in awhile? If so, then it is time to get it
checked.
Eating less sodium, as well as making other life-
style changes, may prevent or delay getting high
blood pressure and may help lower elevated blood
pressure. These changes include eating more potas-
sium-rich foods, losing excess weight, being more
physically active, eating a healthy diet and limiting
alcoholic beverages, if you choose to drink them.
Hidden sodium in food
Sodium is found in many of the processed and
prepared foods we eat every day, such as canned
vegetables, soups, luncheon meats and frozen
meals. Food manufacturers also use sodium-con-
taining compounds to preserve food and improve its
taste and texture.
A new report from the Institute of Medicine rec-
ommends that sodium content of foods be reduced
to help reduce the risk of hypertension and cardio-


vascular disease. The report urges the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration to set maximum sodium
levels for different foods so, over time, average
consumption would drop by about half a teaspoon.
As the government moves forward in addressing
the issue of sodium in food you buy, there are many
things you can do to eat less sodium.
To kick the sodium habit
The U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services recommends that you get no more than
2,300 milligrams of sodium each day. People with
high blood pressure, African-Americans and people
who are middle-aged or older should get no more
than 1,500 milligrams of sodium each day and
should get potassium through foods.
Tips for eating less salt:
*Look for low-sodium products when shopping
in the commissary. When you're choosing pack-
aged foods, check the sodium content on the nutri-
tion facts label. Use the percent Daily Value (per-
cent DV) to help limit your sodium intake 5
percent DV or less is low and 20 percent DV or
more is high.
*Compare sodium content for similar foods. This
can really make a difference. Use the nutrition facts
label to select brands that are lower in sodium.
*Eat more fresh foods and fewer processed foods.
Fresh meat is usually lower in sodium than lun-

How STORY TIME PROVED THAT MAKING HOUSE CALLS
AREN'T FABLES AFTER ALL.

Bill always had a fondness for reading bedtime stories to his daughter.
As a Haven Hospice patient with a serious illness, he wanted to be home
with his family, especially for his daughter's bedtime stories. So when it
became too difficult for Bill to visit his doctor, our doctors made house
calls to Bill -just not during story time so Bill could stay right where he
wanted to be, home.

Not what you'd expect from hospice care? Haven is different. At Haven,
we believe Hospice is about living, not dying. It's a philosophy that's
guided us for more than 30 years.

We're Haven Hospice. The stories of life live here.

DoDDS schools in Italy, Japan
and South Korea.
Constitution Day is observed
nationally Sept. 17, on the
day that the Constitutional
Convention met for the last
time to sign the Constitution
in 1787. In 2004, the govern-
ment established it as a federal
observance and renamed it from
Citizenship Day to Constitution
Day and Citizenship Day. As a
result, all publicly funded edu-
cational institutions are required
to provide educational program-
ming on the history of the U.S.


Constitution on that day.

ians from the Johnson County
Library, Overland Park, Kan.;
Muskingum University/
Visiting Librarian Service, New

Library, Abilene, Kan.
The group's objectives are to
help engage students in learning
about history, culture, science
and government through games
and other interactive activi-
ties; assist teachers and school
librarians with locating teaching
aids, lesson plans, and exciting
