FRCSE Dets Pass Inspections With Flying Colors Page 3 Captains Cup Winners Announced Page 11 USS Hue City Honors 50th Anniversary of Battle Page 9 Mayport Welcomes Newest LCS USS Little Rock Arrives At New Homeport See Pages 4-5 Help MWR Mayport Celebrate Earth Day By Terra Downey MWR Mayport Marketing Technician A beautification project is in full swing at Ocean Breeze Conference and Catering Center. The next step to complete the project is an event intended to bring the Mayport community together for an Earth Day Celebration. Members of the community, ages 16 and up, are asked to Bring Your Shovel to Work to help plant flowers and plants behind Ocean Breeze on April 20 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. In preparation for the community portion of the beautification project, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) brought employees together from across the organization to help with the prep work. Employees from MWR Maintenance prepped the soil for irrigation, flower beds and new trees. Next, staff from Windy Harbor Golf Club installed an irrigation system, constructed retaining walls for flower beds and planted trees. Well over 100 hours of labor were completed in preparation for the Earth Day Celebration. In total, 20 palm trees and 1,500 plants will be planted once the project is finished. Ocean Breeze already has a billion-dollar view of the ocean, said Libby Swim, MWR Hospitality Director. This project will help us greatly enhance the beauty of that natural view. -Photo by Paige Gnann Capt. Matt Ott, commanding officer of NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Jacksonville, is joined by Capt. Michael Burd, Commander, Helicopter Maritime Strike Wing Atlantic, Capt. David Yoder, commanding officer of NS Mayport, Commander Meger D. Chappell with LCSRON 2, and personnel from NAVSUP Mayport, Public Works and contractors at the ribbon cutting for the newly renovated Building 1554 on April 13. Supply Upgrade Means Better Service To Fleet From Staff Representatives from Naval Station Mayport, Helicopter Maritime Strike Wing Atlantic, and LCSRON Two joined Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) Mayport personnel and NS Mayport Public Works in celebrating the newly renovated FLC warehouse Building 1554 on April 13. The joint NAVSUPLCSRON project includes warehouse modification with a new redesign of the exisiting storage systems. Capt. Matt Ott, commanding officer of NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Jacksonville, said the project stemmed from the fact that the warehouse not only was an uncomfortable place to work, but it also was not using its full potential. Plus, with the addition of the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) fleet, the mission of Mayports FLC shifted to accommodate. The warehouse has a new mezzanine storage space and shelving systems, along with new ergonomic fans, upgraded electrical and NS Mayport Prepares For Hurricane Season From Staff Naval Station Mayport will participate in a Navy-wide natural disaster preparedness exercise, Hurricane Exercise/ Citadel Gale 2018 (HURREX/CG 18), April 24 May 11. This annual exercise prepares the Navy to respond to adverse weather threats in U.S. coastal regions, and to maintain the ability to deploy forces even under the most severe weather conditions. HURREX/CG 18 will involve a simulated storm system developing and intensifying to hurricane strength, threatening the East Coast regions. All Navy commands at Navy Region Mid-Atlantic, Naval District Washington and Navy Region Southeast will participate by reviewing and exercising heavy weather instructions, procedures and accounting for Sailors, Department of the Navy civilians, and Navy families in the affected regions through the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS). There will be no U.S. Navy ship movements associated with HURREX/CG 18. For more information about HURREX/CITADEL GALE 18, contact the Public Affairs office at (904) 270-5226. The next COs Town Hall Meeting is scheduled for April 19 at Mayport Beacon from 6-8 p.m. Farragut Deploys With HSTCSG From USS Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group Public Affairs The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group (HSTCSG) departed last week for a regularly scheduled deployment. The strike group, including aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 1, USS Normandy (CG 60), several destroyers of Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 28 and German frigate FGS Hessen (F 221), is scheduled to conduct operations in the U.S. Navys 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility. The deployment is part of an ongoing rotation of U.S. forces supporting maritime security operations in international waters around the globe. Additionally, HSTCSG units will work alongside allied and partner maritime forces, focusing on theater security cooperation efforts, which help to further regional stability. Im incredibly proud of the dedication that the thousands of Sailors from the ships, squadrons and staffs of the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group have shown in preparing for this deployment, and Im honored to lead and serve with them, said Rear Adm. Gene Black, commander of HSTCSG. These Sailors have proven themselves a highly capable team, ready to tackle any mission that our nation calls on them to perform. For Truman, the deployment follows more than eight months of intense training and preparation that began when the ship completed its on-time periodic incremental availability in July 2017, and culminated in its Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX) in March, which certified the ship for deployment. The Sailors on this team have been nothing short of spectacular, said Capt. Nicholas Dienna, Trumans commanding officer.

Since a typical military family moves every two to four years, homeschooling can provide continuity in education and eliminate the stress of leaving one school district and moving to another. The goal for the homeschooling parent is to identify how and when their child learns best and to adapt the teaching style to the child. Finding that special curriculum which works best for the child can sometimes be challenging. Also the costs associated with homeschooling may vary depending on the method and/ or curriculum selected by the family. Listed below are a few examples of the most popular types of homeschooling programs available to families: Internet Homeschooling, Montessori Method, and School-at-Home. So how do you know which type of curriculum to select for your child, what Florida requires for home school enrollment, and what services are available for your special needs child? Many states have enacted legislation requiring public school access for homeschoolers. Related services such as speech and language, physical therapy, or assistance in traditional academic areas such as math and reading may be available in Florida.

KNOWING THE ROPES Sharon Kasica School Liaison Officer Hope In Future As We Remember Past This past week on April 11, President Trump asked the people of the United States of America to observe the Days of Remembrance of Victims of the Holocaust, April 12-19. It was an opportunity to remember the millions that were gassed, killed, drowned, burned alive, tortured, beaten or frozen to death; honoring the heroes, martyrs, survivors, and the victims. It was a time of warning to mankind that hatred is destructive and violence is contagious and by remembering our past atrocities they can give us hope for our future. The importance of Days of Remembrance is more for our future than it is for our past. It is crucial that we remember the nightmares and why they happened; if not we will be destined to forget them at our own peril. Our future hope as a nation is largely dependent upon how well we are united in our remembrance and cling to what liberty really is and the terror of tyranny, because there is a high cost to forgetting. People of faith should understand the importance of remembering. Scriptures are full of memorials that remind us of many things like deliverance from slavery, oppression, opportunities to receive forgiveness, reconciliation and redemption. So as we honor those victims who suffered cruelty to those unsung heroes to laid their lives down for the sake of freedom and justice, let us remember the past evils that we may not repeat them in the future. As a people of faith, let us make every day, as long as it is called today a day to remember. May we never forget. . Chaplain Travis Jewell CNSS 14 Chaplain Center CHAPLAINS CORNER Tis The Season Of Change For Military Kids When we were leaving Guam, Devon isolated himself from his friends as they were isolating him. We dealt with it by spending more time with one friend and her family that didnt isolate him and we all became fast friends. Unfortunately she is PCSing in a few months and her mother is telling us that she is now being isolated by her friends, says Navy spouse Jay of his son, age 10. My son decided not to play baseball this spring, his sophomore year, says Army wife Kimberly. We re moving to Rhode Island, and here in Alaska the season is just starting, snow is still covering the fields. He didnt want to train on a team when he wouldnt get to be there for part of the season. He felt hed be letting the team down. Marine child Gabby, age nine, describes her most stressful move as leaving Okinawa, Japan in fourth grade, because we had an entire life there with friends away from all family, and, it was one of the longest duty stations Ive been alive for. While I was excited to start middle school in Virginia, I quickly figured out that these kids had gone to school with each other since kindergarten, recalls Navy dependent Adrienne D., now age 20. This was a new concept that these kids have known each other their whole lives. I found it very difficult to find friends within the first year of moving. It was stressful just knowing everything was happening at once. Moving away from my comfortable place and having to start fresh. Knowing that the friends I do make will only be for a short time, says Navy child Aliyah, age 8. Adrienne G., Navy spouse, explains how her two boys react differently to change: I have an extrovert who wants to spend more time with friends and an introvert who wants to pull away. To meet the needs of both kids, were staying in one state. The Navy can survive without us for a while. According to the Department of Defense, there are 1.7 million American forcedependent children across the globe, about 80 percent of which attend public schools. Since over half of all military moves take place at the end of the school year, there are roughly a million military kids currently facing an impending move. That makes April, the Month of the Military Child, pretty stressful. According to the authors of a new book available June 1, The Seasons of My Military Child: Practical Ideas for Parents and Teachers parents and educators should use a team-approach to help military kids through transitions. Authors Amanda Trimillos, Air Force spouse, teacher, and mother of four, and Stacy AllsbrookHuisman, Air Force spouse, military advocate, and mother of two, advise parents to build an army of awareness. Together, parents, teachers, administrators, and counselors can guide the child through the seasons of transition. The team should watch for signs of struggle, which include isolation, low grades, eating alone at lunch, and lack of involvement. Trimillos and Allsbrook-Huisman recommend that parents listen. Let them lead the conversation, especially tweens and teens. Ask open-ended questions. Kids are watching the way we handle moves, so remember not to project your feelings onto them, says Allsbrook-Huisman. Through networking, communication, and more specific tools described in the book such as creating an Education Binder that follows your child to each school the authors say military children can thrive. Even social media can be an effective tool in easing transition stress, according to Trimillos, whose daughter still plays Barbies with her best friend from three stations ago via FaceTime. She sets her screen inside her Barbie house while her friend does the same in Oklahoma. Our own daughters developed a way to turn fear into positive excitement after our move to Germany in 2008. Anna would point out forests, playgrounds, sidewalks anything, and proclaim conspiratorially to her little sister, Lilly, Adventure awaits! Military kids have tried and failed, tried and succeeded.and live to tell about it, Allsbrook-Huisman says, acknowledging that military children are more experienced than civilian peers. Its the gift of perspective, something only military kids have.

FRCSE Dets Pass Aviation Maintenance Inspections With Flying Colors By Clifford Davis Fleet Readiness Center Southeast Public Affairs With respective grades of 98.9 and 95.6, Sailors at Fleet Readiness Center Southeasts detachments at Naval Air Station Jacksonville and Naval Station Mayport should be beaming after their units aced major inspections recently. FRCSE, as the Navy aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul facility is known, employs civilians to do in-depth work on military aircraft at its headquarters aboard NAS Jacksonville. Sailors at their detachments perform the more frequent, day-to-day maintenance required and the Navy inspects them every 18 months for safety, quality and efficiency. These inspections are so important, FRCSE Command Master Chief Donald Henderson said. Not only does it give us an honest assessment of what kind of job were doing, it ensures that we are sending the very best equipment possible to our warfighters on the front lines. Lt. Cmdr. Derek Tindell, the officer in charge of Detachment Mayport, credited his Sailors. A 95.6 is a great score, and its a credit to a lot of the hard work the Sailors put in every day, Tindell said. The program managers really spent a lot of time and did deep dives into their programs to ensure we were doing everything effectively and efficiently. Though preparing for the inspection is important, FRCSE Commanding Officer Capt. Trent DeMoss said scores like this come from sustained hard work and dedication. You dont just get ready for an inspection like this during the last three months or the last two weeks, he said. They stay ready. Theyre ready all the time. The scope of the inspection was massive. The maintenance department aboard a carrier can be inspected in as little as two or three days, by a 10-man Aviation Maintenance Management Team. Detachment Jacksonvilles inspection took two weeks. We usually schedule inspections to last for a week at the most, said Chief Daniel Castro a member of Aviation Maintenance Management Team Four. But because this is a Fleet Readiness Center, were going to be here for two weeks. DeMoss said such widespread success under thorough scrutiny reflects the detachments culture. The two detachments had 78 of their 79 programs rated on-track, and these are major programs like hydraulic contamination, non-destructive inspection and tool control You dont just fix that in a week, DeMoss said. So that means theyve been doing it all along. That its a normal culture and way of doing business. However, the scores from both detachments are anything but normal. They stand out, even for seasoned Sailors. Ive never seen a score of 98.9, said Detachment Jacksonvilles Master Chief Fred Flaherty. The squadron that did the best of any Ive been a part of personally was a 94. That speaks volumes about where our Sailors are within the mindset of doing work right the first time not just for themselves, but for the Navy. -Photo by Victor Pitts Aviation Machinists Mate 2nd Class Amanda Olivas, left, and Aviation Machinists Mate 3rd Class Ryan Draper, right, work on a compressor rotor for a T-700 engine at Fleet Readiness Center Southeast Detachment Mayport recently.

4 THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, April 19, 2018 Little Rock Arrives in Mayport By Ensign Samantha Robbins USS Little Rock Public Affairs The Freedom-variant littoral combat ship USS Little Rock (LCS 9) arrived to its homeport here this morning for the first time since it was commissioned. The crew lined the rails in their dress blues as the crowd of friends, families, and shipmates greeted the ship with flowers, signs and waving American flags. The ship made a memorable entrance, blasting the song Back in Black after mooring. The ship also played this song when pulling into Buffalo, N.Y., for commissioning, as a tribute to the ships namesake, USS Little Rock (CL-92), and to ring in their motto Back With a Vengeance. Little Rock is a fast, lethal ship ready to go out and fulfill her mission, said Cmdr. Todd Peters, the ships commanding officer. The crew worked relentlessly to bring her home and make their way Back With a Vengeance. We are ready to make final preparations to deploy and carry our motto into history. Todays homecoming completes a three-and-ahalf month journey from Marinette, Wis., where the ship was built. The ship was commissioned in Buffalo, Dec. 16, and then transited the Saint Lawrence Seaway, navigating through 15 locks, until they reached Montreal, Canada. There, they paused their journey because of historical weather conditions and ice. When the weather permitted, the crew began their final leg home, stopping in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Virginia Beach, Va., before arriving here this morning. After so many months of training and preparing, we are proud to bring Little Rock home to Mayport, said Boatswains Mate 2nd Class Brett Ragan, whose wife and baby daughter were waiting on the pier. The families back home have been so supportive during this entire process; it is great to see the crew reunited with their families and to show off our ship, said Operations Specialist Senior Chief Tarius Williams. We are proud of Little Rock. It is great to see it in the Mayport basin joining the Atlantic fleet. Little Rock is the fifth freedom-variant LCS to join the fleet. The fast, shallow draft vessel has a modular design capable of implementing a variety of mission packages as an asset to the fleet in both the shallow coastal regions and the open ocean. Bringing the ship home is the first step to getting her ready for the bigger mission, said Ens. Brandon Alcorn. USS Little Rock is an agile, capable ship ready to meet the demands of the U.S. Navy. -Photo by Paige Gnann USS Little Rock Blue Command Master Chief Joseph Reynolds hugs his family after arriving onboard Naval Station Mayports newest Littoral Combat Ship USS Little Rock (LCS 9) on April 12.

THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, April 19, 2018 7 Fourth Fleet Commander Attends Maritime Staff Talks Held In Colombia By U.S. 4th Fleet Public Affairs Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet, Rear Adm. Sean Buck attended maritime staff talks (MST) hosted by Colombian Chief of Naval Operations, Vice Adm. Evelio Enrique Ramirez, in Bogota from Apr. 4-5. The MST with the senior Colombian naval officers supports the U.S. global maritime strategy by building and strengthening our working relationships and improving our interoperability with partner nations through these face-to-face meetings. These staff talks are an integral component to each countrys ability to communicate and facilitate operations together. Upon the conclusion of the MST, both nations continued building stronger working relationships and clear-cut goals for the upcoming year to enhance interoperability through numerous multinational exercises. Colombia and the U.S. will come together again this summer to participate in both UNITAS and PANAMAX exercises. UNITAS is the longest-running annual maritime exercise in the world, is geared toward improving the coordination and multinational cooperation of the participating forces, this years exercise will be hosted by Colombia.

Navy Christens Mayport-bound LCS Indianapolis From Dept. of Defense The Navy christened its newest Freedomvariant littoral combat ship, USS Indianapolis (LCS 17), during a ceremony April 14 in Marinette, Wisconsin. USS Indianapolis, designated LCS-17, honors Indianapolis, Indianas state capital and is the fourth ship to bear the name. The principal speaker was former U.S. Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana. Mrs. Jill Donnelly, wife of U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana, served as the ships sponsor. In a timehonored Navy tradition, she christened the ship by breaking a bottle of sparkling wine across the bow. The future USS Indianapolis honors more than a city, it pays tribute to the legacy of those who served during the final days of World War II on board USS Indianapolis (CA35), said Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer. This ship will continue the proud legacy of service embodied in the name Indianapolis, and is a testament to the true partnership between the Navy and industry. LCS-17 is the fourth ship to carry the name of Indianas capital city. The most recent Indianapolis was a Los Angeles-class fastattack submarine, commissioned Jan. 5, 1980, which served through the end of the Cold War before being decommissioned in 1998. The first Indianapolis was a steamer built for the U.S. Shipping Board (USSB) and commissioned directly into the Navy in 1918. After two runs to Europe, the ship was returned to the USSB following the war. It is the second Indianapolis -a cruiser-that is perhaps the best known of the three. The ship was sunk in the final days of World War II, and her crew spent several days in the water awaiting rescue. But it was her impressive war record that first brought the ship to the attention of Navy leaders and the American public. The ship served faithfully throughout the war, seeing action in the Aleutians, the Gilbert Islands, Saipan, the Battle of the Philippine Sea, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. In addition, the ship earned 10 battle stars for World War II service and successfully completed a top secret mission delivering components of the instrument that ended the war.

The Sachsen-class German frigate FGS Hessen (F 221) is also operating as part of the strike group during the first half of the deployment. USS Jason Dunham and USS The Sullivans are slated to deploy at a later date and will rejoin the strike group in theater. Squadrons of CVW 1, commanded by Capt. John Perrone, that will embark Truman dur ing deployment include Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 11 Red Rippers, VFA 211 Checkmates, VFA 81 Sunliners, VFA 136 Knighthawks, Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 137 Rooks, Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 126 Seahawks, Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 72 Proud Warriors, Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 11 Dragon Slayers and a detachment from Fleet Logistics Support Squadron (VRC) 40 Rawhides.

From Page 1 Farragut HSTCSG, Farragut Kicks Off 2018 Deployment With Live Fire Exercise By Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group Public Affairs The Arleigh Burkeclass guided-missile destroyers USS Farragut (DDG 99) and USS Forrest Sherman (DDG 98), part of the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group (HSTCSG), conducted a livefire missile exercise (MISSLEX), April 13. During the evolution, the ships successfully executed a variety of scenarios simulating a complex warfighting environment, including the shoot-down of advanced high-speed targets. Beginning our deployment to the 6th Fleet area of responsibility with this complex exercise demonstrates that our weapons systems work, our Sailors know how to employ them, and most significantly, that our strike group is ready to take on any missions we are called upon to perform, said Rear Adm. Gene Black, HSTCSG commander. The techniques and weapons systems tested during this evolution represent HSTCSGs capability to protect itself against a wide vari ety of modern air and missile threats. Strike group ships conducted a number of drills and rehears als prior to this event, including an integrated live-fire exercise during the strike groups Group Sail in November. Each time, learning points were debriefed and les sons were incorporated to ensure the Combat Operations team was building expertise. Our surface ships face many threats, and our ability to provide com bat power requires us to operate our weapons systems proficiently and promptly, continued Black. Each ship in our strike group brings for midable capabilities as a standalone combat force -but by integrating these assets as a carrier strike group, our power projection capability is unmatched. The HSTCSG deployed April 11 as part of an ongoing rotation of U.S. forces supporting mari time security opera tions in international waters around the globe. Additionally, HSTCSG units will work along side allied and partner maritime forces, focus ing on theater secu rity cooperation efforts, which help to further regional stability. With aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman as the flagship, deploying HST CSG strike group assets include staffs, ships and aircraft of Carrier Strike Group Eight (CSG 8), Destroyer Squadron Two Eight (DESRON 28) and Carrier Air Wing One (CVW-1); as well as Sachsen-class German frigate FGS Hessen (F 221). -Photo by MC2 Tyrell K.

The Battle of Hue began fifty years ago on Jan. 31, 1968, dur ing the Vietnamese holiday of Tet when the North Vietnamese Army launched an allout offensive against the United States and Republic of Vietnam forces throughout South Vietnam. One target of the attack was the ancient Vietnamese imperial city of Hue. U.S. Marines immedi ately launched a coun ter-offensive called Operation Hue City. The ensuing struggle for Hue resulted in a significant American victory. USS Hue City, a Naval Station Mayport based Ticonderoga-class guid ed-missile cruiser, is the only ship named after a battle of the Vietnam War.
