CPPD Expands Operational Stress


Control Training On eLearning Site


From Center for Personal and Professional Development Public

The Center for Personal and Professional
Development (CPPD) has expanded its operational
stress control (OSC) training with eight new eLearning
courses designed for Navy leaders.
The interactive courses are now available on Navy
eLearning to petty officers, division officers, depart-
ment heads and senior enlisted personnel.
"These web-based offerings are part of the Navy's
effort to embed OSC concepts across all education
and training programs," said Cmdr. George Michaels,
CPPD's director of training. "This latest curriculum
builds on the foundational courses already taught to
more than 142,000 Sailors, family members and health
care providers. While these first courses provided all


Sailors with the insight and guidance they need to
navigate stress from day-to-days operations, the latest
content is aimed at leaders at all levels and can be used
to support commands' specific learning needs."
The OSC course delivery is intended to reach Sailors
and commands through a variety of platforms. Mixing
delivery methods, such as instructor-led and online
courses, helps address differing learning styles. In addi-
tion, regular reviews of existing courses keep the most
up-to-date information available to the fleet, while
development of additional lessons, such as those in the
Leadership Core Continuum (LCC), build on the latest
research and information available.
The newly developed enlisted OSC courses include:
Petty Officer 3rd Class, CPPD-OSC-PO3-1.0; Petty
Officer 2nd Class, CPPD-OSC-PO2-1.0; Petty Officer


1st Class, CPPD-OSC-P01-1.0 g; and Chief Petty
Officer, CPPD-OSC-CPO-1.0. The OSC officer cours-
es are all online courses and include: Division Officer,
CPPD-OSC-DO-1.0; Department Head, CPPD-OSC-
DH-1.0; Senior Enlisted, CPPD-OSC-SE-1.0; and
Command Leadership, CPPD-OSC-CL-1.0.
To access these courses, visit Navy Knowledge
Online at www.nko.navy.mil, click on "Navy eLearn-
ing" and conduct an advanced search for the appropri-
ate catalog code or course title. You can also choose
Bios'\ c Categories," then select "All Catalog Items,"
then "Department of the Navy (DON) Training" fol-
lowed by "Environmental and Safety."
The training can be located in the "What's New" box
at the bottom of the Navy eLearning homepage.


New


Plans


For


Officer


Select

From ( .. of Naval Personnel Public

The Secretary of the Navy
has approved a revised phas-
ing plan for active duty officer
promotions beginning in fiscal
year 2011, as part of the Navy's
multiple efforts to achieve fiscal
balance.
Effective Oct. 1, active duty
officers selected for promotion
to the grades of captain, com-
mander and lieutenant com-
mander will be promoted at a
three percent per month rate
for 11 months, with the remain-
ing officers to be promoted in
September 2011. All officers
selected for promotion during
fiscal year 2011 will be promot-
ed in that fiscal year. This phas-
ing plan does not affect future
selection board promotion rates.
Unrestricted line and human
resources officers of the full-
time support community will
continue to promote at the same
rate as their active duty coun-
terparts.
Under previous plans, five
percent of officers selected for
captain, commander and lieu-
tenant commander were pro-
moted in each of the first eight
months of the year, with 15
percent per month during the
remaining four months.
Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson,
chief of naval personnel, said
the plan contributes to keeping
the Navy's manpower account
in fiscal balance.
"We will continue to fulfill
mission requirements for 2011
while controlling growth in
manpower costs," Ferguson
said. "We will revisit this plan
each fiscal year."

tion phasing plans, visit http://

Personal Security


- It's That Important!


By Beth Wilson
Military Spouse Contributor
Over the last two weeks I
repeatedly sat shocked and sad-
dened by multiple news reports
of crimes committed as a result
of posts on Facebook, Twitter,
Foursquare, My Space or per-
sonal blogs. A jealous boyfriend
in Fresno brutally attacked his
girlfriend over what he believed
to be 'flirting' with a former
high school classmate. Homes
are targeted after posts on
Foursquare announce the home
is empty. A Facebook post, "I'm
heading out to the movies"
told unsavory friends that the
house would be empty plenty
of time to rob the house. Yes, I
said 'friends.' A security cam-
era revealed it was Facebook
Friends that committed the rob-


bery.
Per a recent Army briefing
I learned that 80% of what
our enemies learn about US
Homeland Security and our
deployed units is learned thru
unclassified information posted
in 'open sources' such as the
media, internet, chat rooms,
email, even unit support group
newsletters and your garbage.
As a military wife, like you,
I am conscious of the need to
keep my Sailor's schedule and
location close to home; OPSEC.
But what about PERSEC? What


about Personal Security?
In an age of new media we
need to expand our thinking
to include PERSEC. What do
your posts reveal about you? I
reviewed my history of posts
over the last few months and
discovered that inadvertently I
gave a lot of clues to my loca-
tion, size of family, deploy-
ment status, and schedule.
What I thought was sharing
'good news' announced things
like my husband isn't here,
I'm home alone. Sharing 'good
news' revealed my home would


be empty several times.
Across several conversations
I revealed whether I have chil-
dren, if I live on or off base,
my regular pattern of shopping,
my daily 'walking' routine, my
favorite coffee shop and when
I visit it...and would you
believe, in an effort to encour-
age 'disaster preparedness,' I
told where I keep my important
papers and a large amount of
cash. Holy COW! So someone
following me could figure out
that I am gone at a particular
time for certain amount of time,
that my husband was not there
and exactly where to find my
emergency preparedness stack
of cash. LOVELY...
I recently read a military
spouse blog that gave her hus-
band's full name, home town,


unit and even the dates of
deployment. She had a picture
of herself and her soldier. She
announced they were expect-
ing their first child (Nov 18th)
and the Baby Shower is sched-
uled for October 3rd with loca-
tion and time posted. I have a
friend who is a security expert
who told me how much we can
find out from her blog. With
the husband's full name, a
Google search revealed his date
of birth, year of marriage, full
name of the author and the cou-
ple's home address. And that is
more than enough to open them
to identity theft and criminal
activity.
What clues have you given?
Have you inadvertently, by
sharing exciting news (We're
going to Cancun! He'll be home


in TEN DAYS! I got a new
Mini!), informed others that
your home will be empty, you
are alone, desirable possessions
are available or other informa-
tion?
Next week we will look at the
top ten things we need to know
to keep ourselves and our fami-
lies safe. PERSEC it's not an
option and it's not complicated.

Navigate The College-Selection Process


Judy Cromartie
School Liaison Officer
It is that time in the senior
year when students need to
make some final decisions
about what they are going to
do after high school. To achieve
postsecondary training success,
the student will need to
1. investigate his interests,
abilities, and preferences to
help choose a career,
2. determine if that career
goal can be achieved at a uni-
versity, community college,
technical school, or through the
military either military ser-
vice or a military academy,
3. begin researching which


one of those choices will help
him to achieve his career goal,
and
4. create a plan which leads
to postsecondary training suc-
cess.
But why continue an educa-
tion after high school? With
today's economy, it is almost
impossible to support oneself
with just a high school diploma.
Further education means more
money! Here are a few reasons


to go to college from the web-
site www.ACT.org:
Every bit of education you
get after high school increases
the chances you'll earn good
pay. Most college graduates
earn more money during their
working years than people who
stop their education at high
school earn.
The more education you get
the more likely it is you will
always have a job. According to


one estimate, by the year 2028
there will be 19 million more
jobs for educated workers than
there are qualified people to fill
them.
Continuing education after
high school is much more
important for your generation
than it was for your parents'
generation. Today most good
jobs require more than a high
school diploma. Businesses
want to hire people who know
how to think and solve prob-
lems.
Education beyond high
school gives you a lot of other
benefits, including meeting
new people, taking part in new
opportunities to explore your
interests, and experiencing suc-
cess.
The next question you may
ask yourself is, No%% that my
child has decided he wants
to attend college, how do we
decide which college he will
attend?" Researching and then
finding an answer to that ques-
tion forms the foundation of a
college search. An integral part


of this search will be to deter-
mine the following:
*What programs are offered
at that institution? If your child
is interested in marine biology,
and that is not offered at that
institution, you need to look
further.
*What are the college's/
university's GPA admis-
sion requirements? Are they
the same for every program?
While most schools calculate
the admission GPA on the 18
core academic credits with
additional weight given to
grades of "C" or higher, they
carefully examine those 18 core
academic credits to make sure
they are in the most rigorous
courses offered at your child's
high school.
*What are the college's/
university's SAT/ACT score
requirements? Florida's college
advising website www.FACTS.
org will provide not only an
SAT/ACT score for college
admission, but other eligibility
requirements as well. You need
to look at the university your


child is interested in to deter-
mine last year's average SAT
and ACT scores for incoming
freshman.
*How many freshman applied
and how many were actually
admitted? All of this informa-
tion can be found on www.
FACTS.org for Florida pub-
lic and private schools and on
the individual school's web-
site. These websites will also
list the average incoming GPA,
average class size, student-to-
faculty ratio, and many other
facts which may help your child
select the very best school for
him.

School Liaison Officer for NS
Mayport. If you have ques-
tions about this article or con-
cerns about an educational issue

tain overlooking the Caribbean
Ocean. Being a male in a jeep
with beautiful woman at my
side, I cut the wheel hard to the
right and descended down a
winding dirt road. A half hour
later, we broke through the
dense tropical forest and caught
our first glimpse of paradise.
I had noticed several sets of
tire tracks along the water's
edge and decided to follow
them. We had crossed no more
than 30 feet of sand when
it happened: we were stuck.
After about 20 minutes of wast-


must be accompanied by their
sponsor to submit their entry.
Each student may enter only
once each grading period and
must re-enter with each qualify-
ing report card.
To enter the drawing, stop by
any NEX with a current report
card and have a NEX associate
verify the minimum grade aver-
age. Then fill out an entry card
and obtain an A-OK ID, which
entitles the student to discount
coupons for NEX products and
services.
The Navy Exchange Service
Command (NEXCOM) has
been offering students a chance
to win a savings bond through
its A-OK Student Reward
Program since 1997. Since the
program began, NEXCOM has
awarded $504,000 in savings
bonds with the help of its gener-
ous vendor partners.


ing gas and digging trenches, I
paused to consider our options.
Climbing back up the mountain
was out of the question because
I doubted that my wife could
carry me that far. I thought
about using the wench on the
front of the jeep but remem-
bered that I had declined that
$15 "added feature."
As I returned to trench dig-
ging, I heard a voice break-
ing through the roar of the
engine. "Let off, let off; take
it easy." Looking up, I saw


a tall, slender man standing
slightly to the right of our jeep
holding a 3-gallon pale and a
3-foot machete. I could almost
see the headline, "Mutilated
Newlyweds Found After Four
Month Search."
In a fleeting moment of
weakness, I realized that I
didn't necessarily have to out
run this stranger, but really only
needed to outrun my wife (just
kidding). However, the panic
passed as I realized this guy
was simply offering his help.
We worked together for
another hour or so without
much success. Spotting two
4'x8' sheets of tin roofing, we
discovered them to be too long
to maneuver under the tires.


Undaunted, the islander used
his machete to reduce the sheets
to more manageable sizes.
With the help of this stranger,
we finally made it back to solid
ground.
The islander told us this was
the first time he had been on
this stretch of beach. After
a morning of fishing, he was
returning home to his wife and
eight children. His act of kind-
ness made a lasting impression
upon me. While the passing of
24 years may have erased his
name from my memory, I will
never forget his parting words
as he turned to go, "Just think
of me as a Godsend."
God's promise to be with us
is demonstrated in Isaiah 41:10;


"So do not fear, for I am with
you; do not be dismayed, for I
am your God. I will strengthen
you and help you; I will uphold
you with my righteous right
hand."
We have all experienced such
moments when the right person
seems to show up at the right
time. I sincerely believe these
encounters are just one of the
many ways that God reaches
out to us in our time of need.
My hope is that we do not see
such encounters as pure luck
or a mere coincidence, but that
we will see them for what they
truly are which is nothing less
than a "Godsend."

From USS Gettysburg
USS Gettysburg is one of
only 27 ships to receive the
Battle E for 2009.
The calendar year-long
competition involves evalu-
ation by Surface Forces of a
ship's abilities in logistics,
material, engineering, dam-
age control, navigation, com-
mand and control, and air, sur-
face, and subsurface warfare.
Even if a ship meets these chal-
lenges, it still has to demon-
strate to the immediate superior
in command sustained superior
performance, operational effec-
tiveness, and continuous readi-
ness to be a contender for the
Battle "E."
During the months of July
and August, Gettysburg tack-

led a series of Unit Level
Training Assessments (ULTA).
These assessments are to test
the ship's training proficiency
levels in warfare areas such as
engineering, damage control,
combat systems, and medical.
Afloat Training Group Mayport,
as the assessors, also cov-
ered combat systems defense
capabilities, seamanship, navi-
gation and deck operations.
Fire drills and simulated mis-
sile, small-boat attacks, preci-
sion anchoring, low-visibility
navigation, mass casualty, and
general quarters scenarios test-
ed every aspect of the ship's
warfare capabilities.
Gettysburg Sailors devoted
a lot of time, sweat, and lack


of sleep in order to ensure
Gettysburg's success. All
departments were required to
work together, more than ever,
to demonstrate that the crew is
capable of minimizing major
casualties and defend the ship
against enemy forces.
All areas met and/or exceed-
ed ULTRA requirements.
Specific examples include:
Damage Control, 80 percent;
Cryptologic Warfare, 96.81 per-
cent; Combat Systems, 96.49
percent; Intelligence, 94.55 per-
cent; Navigation, 91.56 percent;
Mobility Engineering, 80 per-

Veterans Invited To Take Part In Special


Recognition Ceremony At NS Mayport


From the Office OfCongressmanAnder
Crenshaw
Fourth-Congressional District
veterans who served in the mil-
itary between 1941 and 1979
and have not already been rec-
ognized are invited to apply to
receive certificates of Special
Recognition from Congressman
Ander Crenshaw in a ceremo-
ny slated for this fall at Naval
Station Mayport. The appli-
cation deadline to receive the
honor is Oct. 8.
"It is my desire to honor all
who served in our armed forc-
es," said Crenshaw. "These men
and women answered the call of
duty. Some served during war
time; some kept the peace. All
were willing to put their lives at


risk to protect our freedom and
democracy. This ceremony will
help show our appreciation."
Over the past eight years,
Crenshaw has recognized hun-
dreds of veterans who served
during the periods of World War
II, Korean War and Vietnam.
This year's ceremony will rec-


ognize the contributions of all
who served in the U.S. Armed
Forces, including the Coast
Guard, Merchant Marines, and
National Guard during the dates
of 1941 and 1979. If you were
not recognized by Congressman
Crenshaw in past years for your
service during WW II, Korea or
..


Vietnam, or if you served dur-

The Sullivans Returns From Deployment


Information Systems Technician 2nd Class (SW) Jasmmine Hudson holds her 3-year-old son
Fox after reuniting with him during USS The Sullivans homecoming on Sunday at Naval Station


Mayport.

By Ensign Alexander Brush
USS The Sullivans (DDG 68) Public
Officer
USS The Sullivans (DDG
68) returned from a challenging
and rewarding seven and a half
month independent Ballistic
Missile Defense deploy-
ment to the Arabian Gulf and
Mediterranean regions on Sept.
19.
The 280 Sailors aboard The
Sullivans completed a wide
range of missions from partner-
ship-building exercises and for-
ward presence operations with
coalition navies to participation
in ongoing maritime security
operations and integration into
theater air and ballistic missile
defense organizations.
For a period of two months
The Sullivans was part of the
coalition maritime task group


responsible for security of
the of Al Basra Oil Terminal
in the Northern Arabian Gulf
and acted as the Maritime
Interception Operations (MIO)
Commander. The Sullivans
was responsible for providing
air surveillance and defense and
for directing the coalition forces
positioned around the termi-
nal to maintain security of the
critical offshore infrastructure.
With their flight deck and crew
capable of landing and refuel-
ing most of the military service
helicopters in the region and
the mobility of the ship's boats,
The Sullivans made an impor-
tant contribution to the overall
operation by providing for the
movement of people, material,
and supplies.
Elsewhere in the Arabian
Gulf, The Sullivans partici-


pated in operations with the
coalition forces of Combined
Task Force 152 designed to
enhance the safety and security
of the gulf maritime environ-
ment. Working with the coali-
tion command and other par-
ticipating navies, The Sullivans'
boarding teams made direct
contacts with waterman in the
region to learn about patterns
of life, hazards, and reports of
unlawful activities in an effort
to improve the awareness and
effectiveness of coalition forces.
Participation in joint multina-
tional exercises is another way
that The Sullivans enhanced
relations and contributed to
improved cooperation in the
region.

The Sullivans From Page 4


Union and Stakenet, The
Sullivans operated with mari-
time forces from Saudi Arabia
and Kuwait in coalition-
enhancing events that included
Search and Rescue exercises,
several Maritime Infrastructure
Protection Exercise scenarios,
and various tactical formation
shiphandling, communications,
and command and control drills.
During their brief periods
in port, several crewmembers
volunteered for projects that
showed the good will of the
American people and enhanced
the Navy and American image
in the region. In Bahrain,
Sailors repaired equipment and
cleared a field for use as a play-
ground at a special-needs day
care center. Working through
the American Embassy in
Spain, a group from the ship led
by the Chief Petty Officers gave
their time to a cancer hospice
center during the ship's final
port visit in Malaga, where they
painted and repaired parts of the
facility and shared a morning
,ooo


with patients.
"This seven month plus
deployment is a testament not
only to the dedication of our
Sailors, but also to the support
of our families," said Command
Master Chief Rafael Rosado.
"For many, it was their hard-
est deployment. Several Sailors
faced difficult challenges at
home, such as the loss of a
loved one. Our Ombudsmen,
Apryl Woods and Sarah Otto,
and our family support network
made it possible to execute the
mission at hand."
"The Sailors on this ship
have an Esprit de Corps to be
there for each other in times of
crisis at home and aboard the
ship," he added. "The Sullivans
Motto, 'We Stick Together,' is
not just words but a way of life
aboard this ship that is carried
back home. I should also men-
tion that the ship experienced a
60 percent turn over in person-
nel since the last deployment,
but responded to demanding
missions like a veteran crew in


every respect. The Sullivans
has exceeded every deployment
goal they set and will continue
to set the standard for the fleet.
What the crew accomplished
was incredible: 79 newly quali-
fied and re-qualified Enlisted
Surface Warfare Specialist
Sailors perfecting their craft
and hundreds of newly quali-
fied personnel in key positions
throughout the ship. I would
like to thank the families and
friends again because without
their support none of this could
have happened. We endured and
persevered because the families
and friends did. Well done!"
In all, The Sullivans visited
seven ports and countries, trav-
eled more than 35,000 nauti-
cal miles, transited the Suez
Canal twice, conducted 26
Replenishments at sea, along
with numerous small boat evo-
lutions and supported more than
100 helicopter flight hours dur-
ing its seven and a half month
deployment.


Engineman 1st Class (SW) Wilberto Dejesus holds his family tightly after finding them pierside dur
ing the ship's homecoming celebration.

MWR Sports Coordinator
Friday night at 5 p.m., 12
men's softball teams gathered in
the gym lobby to draw for their
position in the 8th Annual Dusk
Till Dawn Softball Tournament.
Five teams from NAS JAX
ventured to the base to partici-
pate along with five Mayport
teams, a U.S. Coast Guard
team and the Mayport Fire
Department team.
Games began at 6 p.m. on the
misty Friday night and contin-
ued until the sun came up on
the horizon Saturday morning.
Based out of NAS JAX open-
ing the tournament with Game
1 was VPU1 (ODB'S) from
NAS JAX and FRCSE JAX
(Glow Worms).
Game 2 had USS Simpson
(Falcon Slayers) up against
the Mayport Fire Department
(AXEMEN) and in Game 3
NAVSTA took on the Coast
Guard. The Glow Worms in
their bright green uniforms
jumped to an early 9-1 win
along with the Axemen at 9-3
and NAVSTA at 32-2.

Gettysburg (Rebels) with the
Proud Warriors winning a close
6-3 game.
In Game 5 put the Glow
Worms up against USS
Halyburton with Glow Worms
brightening up the field with
a 13-3 win. The Axemen did
not show any mercy to the now

as they went for their 11-0 win
in Game 6.
During Game 7 NAVSTA
moved ahead of NAS JAX
(ATC) team with a final
14-3 victory. Game 8 had
Grandmasters squeaking by
USS Boone with a 14-11 vic-
tory.

of the competition when the
Gettysburg took control for
a 4-3 win. In Game 10 the
US Coast Guard sent USS
Halyburton to bed early with a
20-5 story.
During Game 11 the Falcon
Slayers were sent home by USS
Boone with their 20-4 win.
Game 12 ATC sent ODB's back
to JAX with their 26-0 victory.

game as the Boone barely
squeezed past Glow Worms
with a 15-14 win.
Game 18 was just as close
with Proud Warriors slipping


past Coast Guard 22-21 sending
them home for the evening.
In Game 19 the Axemen
came short as NAVSTA moved
ahead 21-12. In Game 20 began
the trophy round as the Proud
Warriors put the fire out beating
the Axemen and leaving them
in 3rd place with a 12-0 victory.
At 5:15 a.m., NAVSTA and
Proud Warriors went head to
head for the final Championship
game.
The game lasted more than
an hour and as the sun began to
rise NAVSTA began to cheer as
the official called the last play-
er for the Proud Warriors out
and then called the game with a
final score of 15-11.

we Nournsh Hope:

In support of National Make a Difference Day, October 23, Balfour Beatty Com-
munities and Naval Station Mayport Chapel are partnering to make a difference
and we invite you to join us! We are taking on the fight against hunger by col-
lecting canned and packaged foods for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

Statistics regarding poverty in the Second Harvest Food Bank's 18-county
service area:
More than 250,000 people live in poverty
More than 80,000 of those living in poverty are children
More than 100,000 people live in poverty in Duval County

Hunger is not isolated to one event, one day or one season. Hunger does not
discriminate by race, faith, ethnicity age or sex; it exists throughout our com-
munity and can affect anyone. In America today, one in eight people is "food
insecure" defined as someone who is hungry or is living in fear of hunger.
Let's MAKE A DIFFERENCE and give back to those in need!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The Second Harvest Food Bank needs non-perishable grocery items. The fol-
lowing is a list of our most frequently requested items by our member agencies
and clients:
Meals in a Can Boxes of Pasta/Macaroni Peanut Butter
Canned Meat/Poultry Rice Canned Veggies
Canned Tuna Nonfat Dry Milk Canned Fruit
Dry Beans Macaroni and Cheese Diapers
Oatmeal Canned Soup
Baby Food Evaporated Milk
* Please note that Second Harvest Food can only accept unopened, unexpired items.
We also cannot accept "homemade" canned jellies, jams or vegetables.

WHERE ARE DROP OFF DONATIONS?
Please bring all donations to a Balfour Beatty Communities office or Naval Station
Mayport Chapel. There will be a barrel provided for you to drop off your donation.

Navy Releases
2010 Pregnancy,
Parenthood
Survey
By Lt. Laura Stegherr
Diversity Directorate Public, "

The Navy is looking for
input from Sailors in the bien-
nial Pregnancy and Parenthood
Survey, according to a Chief
of Naval Personnel Diversity
Directorate announcement.
Invitations to the survey,
which is being conducted by
the Navy Personnel Research,
Studies and Technology
(NPRST) Division, were mailed
the week of Sept. 6 to approxi-
mately 15,000 female and
10,000 male service members.
Navy leadership has con-
ducted the Pregnancy and
Parenthood Survey continu-
ously since 1988 to monitor the
impact of pregnancy and par-
enthood issues on both men and
women in the Navy, as well as
on the overall readiness of the
Navy. The survey covers such
topics as family care plans, the
impact of individual augmentee
assignments, single parenthood,
sexual health training, fam-
ily planning, birth control and
pregnancy.
Currently, the survey is the
primary source by which the
Navy tracks data and attitudes
relating to these topics. Survey
results will be used to review
existing pregnancy and parent-
hood policies for potential revi-
sion, and to update the Navy's
sexual health general military
training programs.
"While the goal of the survey
is to gather data related to preg-
nancy and parenthood topics,
respondents also play a large
role in updating Navy policy,"
said Stephanie Miller, director
of the Navy's Women's Policy
Office.
Survey responses are also
used to monitor viewpoints
about existing programs. For
example, feedback from
the 2008 survey showed that
programs like the Career
Intermission Pilot Program
(CIPP) and the policy allow-
ing a 12-month deferment from
operational duty for new moth-
ers does impact Sailors' reten-
tion decisions. Thirty-eight per-
cent of enlisted members and
54 percent of officers respond-
ed in the 2008 survey that the
availability of the CIPP pro-
gram motivated them to stay in
the Navy.
The survey is voluntary, and
will be available to respon-
dents online for approximately
three months. As in previous
versions, men and women will
receive the same questions,
except where minor gender-
appropriate wording changes
were required. Men will not
receive pregnancy-specific
questions.
While user names are


required to log into the web sur-
vey, all identifying information
will be deleted from the data set
during analysis to maintain the
anonymity of the respondents.
Results will be statistically
weighted by pay grade and gen-
der to be representative of the
Navy population.
Survey results are expected
to be released in spring 2011.
A summary of results from
the 2008 survey are avail-
able at http://www.nprst.
navy. mil/SurveyResults/
Pregnancy Survey Summary.pdf.

Officials Extend Spouse Career Program Deadline


By Elaine Wilson
American Forces Press Service
Officials have extended a spouse
employment program enrollment
deadline in the hopes that more military
spouses will be able to take spring
semester classes.
Effective Sept. 13, spouses currently
enrolled in the Military Spouse Career
Advancement Accounts program,
commonly known as MyCAA, will
be able to request financial assistance
for classes with a start date that is on
or before Jan. 31. Previously, the start-
date cutoff was Jan. 15.
However, spouses still must submit
their financial assistance request by
Oct. 21, officials emphasized.
The change was based on feedback
from spouses and schools. Many
schools offer a later start date for the
spring semester, and extending the
enrollment deadline will give more


spouses the opportunity to attend
courses, said Robert L. Gordon III,
deputy undersecretary of defense for
military community and family policy.
"We appreciate the feedback from
military spouses currently participating
in the MyCAA career advancement
program," Gordon said.
MyCAA is active at this time only for
currently enrolled spouses, who can
participate in the program through Oct.
21. At that time, the program will ramp
down in preparation for the Oct. 25
launch of a revamped program.
Earlier this year, officials reviewed the
popular spouse employment program
and decided to make changes to bring
it back to its original intent: equipping
spouses of junior servicemembers with
portable careers, such as real estate and
home health care, that can convey from
duty station to duty station.
Previously, MyCAA offered a lifetime


benefit of $6,000 to all spouses of
servicemembers. But starting Oct. 25,
financial assistance will be limited to
spouses of active duty servicemembers
in pay grades E-1 to E-5, W-1 to W-2
and 0-1 to 0-2. Spouses of Guard and
Reserve members within those ranks
can participate as long as they can start
and complete their courses while their
sponsor is on Title 10 orders.
Eligible spouses will be able to receive
a maximum financial benefit of $4,000
for up to three years from the start


99centsofeverdollr]B goes
dIrecttlyto undc ance


date of the first class, with a $2,000
annual cap. The money can be used to
fund associate's degrees, licenses and
certification programs, but not higher
degrees. The annual cap can be waived
if a license or certification's cost
exceeds $2,000.
Currently enrolled spouses who meet
the new criteria will be able to continue
with the program after Oct. 25, but
under the new parameters.
Spouses who no longer will be eligible
to receive financial assistance after Oct.


25 still will be able to access career
and education counseling services. The
new MyCAA program will include
assistance in identifying and securing
information on additional financial
resources, employment readiness, and
career exploration and counseling for all
spouses of active duty servicemembers.
Military spouses can find more
information about MyCAA on the
Military OneSource website at http://
militaryonesource.com or by calling
Military OneSource at 1-800-342-9647.

Navy Memorial Hosts


23rd Annual Lone Sailor


Awards Dinner


By MC3(SW)
Mikelle Smith
Defense Media Activity Anacostia
Public.;
The Navy Memorial hon-
ored three former sea service
veterans during the 2010 Lone
Sailor awards dinner held at the
National Building Museum in
Washington, D.C., Sept. 15.
The distinguished veterans
included Dr. William H. Cosby
Jr., Eddie LeBaron and Lanier
Phillips, who were presented
with the Lone Sailor award in
front of military members and
distinguished guests at the din-
ner.
Cosby, an actor, producer
and entertainer, was recognized
for his accomplishments as a
civilian after serving in the U.S.
Navy.
LeBaron was recognized for
excelling as an entrepreneur
and as a famed Washington
Redskins and Dallas Cowboys
quarterback after serving in the
U.S. Marine Corps during the
Korean War. Phillips, the first
African-American sonar techni-
cian in the U.S. Navy during
World War II, was one of the
survivors of the USS Truxton
(DD 209) shipwreck.
The Lone Sailor award is
presented to sea service vet-
erans who have excelled with
distinction in their respective
civilian careers while continu-
ing to exemplify the Navy core
values of honor, courage and
commitment. Retired Rear
Adm. Edward K. Walker Jr.,
who served in the U.S. Navy's
Supply Corps, said these core
values represent qualities ser-
vice members continue exhibit-
ing today.
"Our honorees are living
examples of how service to
country changes lives and helps
develop leaders whether it is
in the world of sports, politics,
government, the private sector
or the arts. The common theme
they all express is that their
public service has given them
a solid foundation for their
careers and instilled in them
the enduring values that propels
them to continue to serve their
communities," said Walker.
Cosby, who joined the U.S
Navy 40 years ago served as
a hospital corpsman at three
naval installations to include
Bethesda Naval Hospital in
Bethesda, Md. Cosby said his
four-year enlistment in the
Navy provided him with a start-
ing point to develop personally
and professionally.
"My wake up call about
responsibility came when I
entered the Navy," said Cosby.
"Receiving the Lone Sailor
award was wonderful for
me. To be a recipient of this

award along with gentlemen
like Lanier Phillips and Eddie
LaBaron shows us just how far
we have come and how moral
value is being brought to all
Americans."
Cosby, an internationally
recognized comedian, has
been an active figure in com-
munity outreach and continues
involvement in show busi-
ness. LeBaron, a graduate
of the former College of the
Pacific where he was named an
All-American in 1949, served
in the Marine Corps during the
Korean War. Wounded twice,
LeBaron received the Purple
Heart, and, for heroic actions on
the front lines, was also award-
ed the Bronze Star.
LeBaron said being rec-
ognized by the U.S. Navy
Memorial was something he
cherished.
"I am honored to receive
the Lone Sailor award," said
LeBaron. "Looking through the
list of past recipients leaves me
feeling very grateful and know-
ing that my part in the military
and society has impacted a life
makes me proud. I will never
forget this recognition."
LeBaron added that his mili-
tary experience contributed
greatly to his later successes.
"The discipline I learned in
the Marine Corps as a lieuten-
ant was always very impor-
tant to me," said LeBaron. "I
learned how to make concise
decisions from my experiences,
and I applied all of that knowl-
edge to structuring my ventures
in life."
LeBaron played with the
Redskins for seven seasons
after being drafted in the 10th
round of the 1950 National
Football League draft, starting
55 of a possible 72 games. He
additionally played three sea-
sons with the Dallas Cowboys
and was selected to the Pro
Bowl four times (1955, 1957,
1958 and 1962). LeBaron is the
shortest quarterback to ever be
selected to the Pro Bowl.
Phillips, one of the few


African-American Sailors
aboard Truxtun when the
ship ran aground during a
vicious storm off the coast of
Newfoundland in 1942, was
saved by individuals from the
village of St. Lawrence.
Initially terrified to venture
ashore because of racial ten-
sions he had experienced,
Phillips found himself wel-
comed by St. Lawrence village
members, a marked cry from
his southern United States
upbringing.
"I am filled with gratitude
to the people who chose me as
a recipient," said Phillips. "I
never thought the little part I
played in the fight for equal-
ity during my time in the Navy
would get me honored today. I
was doing what any man would
do to better his life."
Phillips added that in the
nearly 70 years since the inci-
dent which changed his life, the
strides made in ensuring equal-
ity in the Navy are something
he said serves to further not
only the individual ideal, but
the betterment of the country he
served as a Sailor.
"When I see today's Navy
with such a diverse background
of Sailors serving and joining
together for the greater good of
this nation, I become proud of
the obstacles I faced because it
paid off in the end, and today
I will forever be a U.S Navy
Sailor," said Phillips.
Prior to the awards ceremo-
ny dinner, Cosby, LeBaron and
Phillips received a tour of the
U.S. Navy Memorial, which
houses the Lone Sailor stat-
ue. The Lone Sailor statue is
a composite of the U.S. Navy
bluejacket, past, present and
future, and was designed in
1987.
The Lone Sailor award has
been given to 67 Navy and
Marine Corps veterans, and the
U.S. Navy Memorial contin-
ues to provide Navy veterans
and personnel currently serving
with a place to celebrate their
service.

Officials Unveil Pentagon POW/MIA Exhibit


By Army Sgt. 1st Class
Michael J. Carden
American Forces Press Service

Defense Department officials
Sept. 15 dedicated a portion of
the Pentagon to military prison-
ers of war and troops missing
in action, honoring one of the
military's guiding principles:
Never leave a comrade behind.
Michele Flournoy, the
Pentagon's policy chief, hosted
the ceremony on the building's
third floor, in Ring A between
corridors 6 and 7.
The hallway is lined with
information, artifacts and pho-
tographs underscoring the
service and sacrifice of more
than 80,000 MIAs and POWs
from the present conflict in
Afghanistan and dating back to
World War II.
"No matter how far away
or how long ago, we will do
everything humanly possible to
bring all those missing service-
members home," Flournoy said.
"We do this for the sake of their
family members, and we also
do this for all who serve today."
The display exhibit was
designed in the corridor,
because thousands of people

Michele Flo nii y, the Defense Department's policy chief talks about the importance of the military's
mission to recover all prisoners of war and those missing in action during a Pentagon ceremony Sept.
15, 2010, in Washington, D.C. Flournoy helped dedicate a Pentagon corridor to American military
prisoners of war and those missing in action.


civilians and tourists -- walk
through it each year, Flournoy
said. The exhibit's location, she
added, underscores the impor-
tance the Defense Department
places on recovering prison-


ers of war and those missing in
action.
"As we stand here today,"
she said, "many thousands of
servicemen and women are
deployed around the world in


harm's way. And in the days
and years to come, some of
them will give their lives to
their country. Some of them
may fall into enemy hands.
"Part of what enables our


men and women to focus on
accomplishing their mission in
harsh and dangerous environ-
ments is the knowledge that
we will do whatever it takes to
bring them home," she contin-
ued.
World War II Army Air Corps
pilot Jerry Wolf was one such
servicemember. His reconnais-
sance plane was shot down in
1946 over Germany. Although
he survived the crash, he spent
11 months in a German prison,
he said.
Wolf noted that World
War II veterans soon will be
extinct, and displays such as
the Pentagon corridor will help
their legacy and service live on
forever.
"I think the exhibit is a won-
derful beginning, and the rec-
ognition is great," Wolf said,
adding that he donated several
letters he wrote while in the
prison camp and other artifacts
to the display. "It's wonderful
to be noted for your service and
being an ex-prisoner of war.
Retired Navy Rear Adm.
Robert Shumaker is another
former POW who attended the
dedication ceremony. His fight-
er plane was shot down over


North Vietnam in 1965. He
spent eight years and one day
in a prison camp, three of which
were spent in solitary confine-
ment.
"Sometimes you don't have a
choice," Shumaker said. "When
an airplane crashes, it crash-
es. It's a terrible feeling, [but]
I always knew that I'd never
be forgotten by the American
people."
In the past year, the Joint
Prisoners of War and Missing in
Action Accounting Command
has accounted for 98 service-
members missing from the
Korean War, the Vietnam War
and World War II. More than
80,000 servicemembers from
the three wars remain unac-
counted-for. Nearly 2,000
from the same wars have been
accounted for and returned to
their families.
The nation will cele-
brate National POW/ MIA
Recognition Day Sept. 17.
Created by Congress in
1998 as part of the Defense
Authorization Act, the obser-
vance is recognized on the third
Friday of September each year.


Obama To Award Medal Of Honor To Afghan War Vet


By Army Sgt. 1st Class Michael J.
Carden
American Forces Press Service
The Medal of Honor will be award-
ed for the first time to a living vet-
eran of the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan,
White House officials announced Sept.
10 in a written statement.
Army Staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta
received a phone call from President
Barack Obama Sept. 9, thanking him
for his service. Obama informed the
infantryman that he would receive the
nation's highest award for his service
and extraordinary bravery in battle, the
statement said.
The event occurred Oct. 25, 2007,
in eastern Afghanistan's Korengal


Valley. Giunta was a specialist at the
time and rifle team leader. He served
in Company B, 2nd Battalion, 503rd
Airborne Infantry Regiment, 173rd
Airborne Brigade Combat Team, based
out of Vicenza, Italy.
Giunta overcame being separated
from his unit, evaded potential enemy
captors and risked his life to rescue
two fellow soldiers. His unit was
divided during the gun battle. One fel-
low soldier was exposed to enemy fire
when Giunta left his cover to pull the
soldier to safety.
The enemy continued to engage
Giunta and the soldier as they worked
to link up with their squad. During the


movement, Giunta noticed two insur-
gents carrying the second soldier, try-
ing to take him captive.
Giunta immediately engaged the
combatants, killing one and wounding
another. He provided medical aid to
the soldier while others provided secu-


rity. The soldier eventually died of his
wounds, but Giunta's actions prevent-
ed him from staying in enemy hands.
The White House statement did
not say when Giunta will receive his
medal.
Giunta, 25, is a native of Iowa, and


enlisted in the Army in November
2003. He deployed twice to
Afghanistan, and currently is stationed
in Vicenza. He will become the eighth
Medal of Honor recipient for actions in
operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring
Freedom.


D*R*Horton wants to show our support and gratitude for the

Meals On Wheels For Pets
The Council on Aging of

with Meals On Wheels for Pets,

al Rollin 'on the River Cruise on

event will help fund our one
year old partnership with them,
which currently serves 49 eligi-
ble Council on Aging Meals On
Wheels clients. Our Council
on Aging clients own 55 cats,
66 dogs, and one cockatiel,
and have been the recipient
of over 9,000 lbs. of donated
pet food that have been deliv-
ered through our volunteers
as they conduct their regular
"people food" meals deliver-
ies. These pet meals contrib-
ute to our Council on Aging of
Nassau clients' wellbeing and
prevents the need of the cli-
ent to feel obligated to share
the meal intended for them
with their pet, insuring better
nutrition for both people and
pets. The Council on Aging of
Nassau has pet food collection
boxes in the lobby of both facil-
ities: 1367 South 18th Street,

able cats and dogs on the 2nd

tion for "pet therapy" benefit-
ing both pets and people. This

Guardian ad Litem
Be the voice for children
abused, neglected, or aban-

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,
www.guardianadlitem.org, or
