Sioux City and Wichita, respectively, are the 14th and 15th Littoral Combat Ships (LCSs) to be delivered to the Navy and the sixth and seventh of the Freedom variant to join the fleet. These deliveries mark the official transfer of the ships from the shipbuilder, part of a Lockheed Martin-led team, to the U.S. Navy. It is the final milestone prior to commissioning. Both ships will be commissioned later this year, Sioux City in Annapolis, Maryland, and Wichita in Jacksonville, Florida. Regarding the LCS deliveries, Captain Mike Taylor, LCS program manager, said, The future USS Sioux City is a remarkable ship which will bring tremendous capability to the Fleet. I am excited to join with her crew and celebrate her upcoming commissioning at the home of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis. Today also marks a significant milestone in the life of the future USS Wichita, an exceptional ship which will conduct operations around the globe, he said. I look forward to seeing Wichita join her sister ships this winter. Capt. Shawn Johnston, commander, LCS Squadron Two, welcomed the ships to the fleet, saying, The future USS Sioux City is a welcome addition to the East Coast Surface Warfare Division. Both her Blue and Gold crews are ready to put this ship though her paces and prepare the ship to deploy. The future USS Wichita is the first East Coast Mine Warfare Division ship, he said. She will have a chance to test some of the latest and greatest mine warfare systems after she completes her remaining combat systems trials. Several additional Freedom variant ships are under construction at Fincantieri Marinette Marine. The future USS Billings (LCS 15) is preparing for trials in spring 2019. The future USS Indianapolis (LCS 17) was christened/ launched in April. The future USS St. Louis (LCS 19) is scheduled for christening and launch in the fall.

Mayport To Host Saratoga Classic By Terra Downey MWR Marketing Technician This week MWR announced it will host the inaugural Saratoga Classic Half Marathon on Feb 3, 2019. The event is open to the public and provides a venue for the Jacksonville and military communities to come together. Naval Station Mayport has been a staple in the community for over 75 years, and the run is named in honor of USS Saratoga (CV-60), Naval Station Mayports first aircraft carrier. The route for the Saratoga Classic will provide a truly original experience. The run will begin on-board Naval Station Mayport and continue out the Main Gate towards HWY 116. Continuing onto HWY 116, the run will go across the Wonderwood Bridge and loop back to the base, where runners will finish next to some of the Navys finest ships. We want to create something unique, that will become part of the cultural fabric year after year, stated MWR Director, Lee Bell. USS Saratoga was the first carrier home-ported at Naval Station Mayport, spending her entire career here (1957-1994). She operated through the Vietnam War, Operation Gulf Storm, and many other conflicts. In honor on USS Saratogas fighting spirit, MWR Mayport has given its inaugural half marathon her name. We have a wonderful opportunity to showcase MWR and Mayports rich history, Bell said. Participants, from first-time half marathoners to elite distance runners, will have the chance to start early registration on Sept. 1, 2018 for only $40. Prices will increase incrementally until the final See Saratoga, Page 3

Bus Transportation Is Safe Transportation Did you know that the familiar yellow school bus is the safest way to and from school? Each year approximately 500 school-age children are killed in the US during school transportation hours while using OTHER modes of transportation. Only about two percent of the total deaths occur in or around school buses. Young drivers, ages 15-to-20 years old, are especially vulnerable to death and injury on the roads. Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for teens in America. Mile for mile, teenagers are involved in three times as many fatal crashes as all other drivers. Most of these fatalities are the responsibility of the young drivers and their passengers. So encourage your teens to take the bus to and from school! Schools are really careful especially during the first two weeks of a new school year to make sure students get on the correct bus. For that reason buses frequently run late during this time. But note: if a driver leaves without being dismissed by the schools bus coordinator, he is responsible for coming back for any missed students. However, if the bus coordinator dismisses a bus and students are later found, the parents must be notified to come get their children as the bus will not return. The schools principal is responsible for designating a bus coordinator who serves as the liaison between the school and the bus company serving that school. The district also appoints a transportation-based coordinator. Their role is to serve as the link between the school and the bus companies. Problems associated with the buses (not arriving on time, crowded conditions on the bus, request for a bus video) should be directed to your transportationbased bus coordinator. Check with your schools bus coordinator or an administrator for the name, phone number, and email of your schools assigned transportation-based coordinator. Every school day the Duval County transportation office is manned until 6:30 pm (4:30 pm for early dismissal days). The office stays in contact with the bus companies until each bus run has been made. But what should you do if your child does not arrive home long after the school has closed? You call the Duval County Public Schools Transportation Office at (904) 8586200 for immediate assistance. Here is the site for bus route information: http:// www.duvalschools. org//site/Default. aspx?PageID=9229 To avoid leaving a child at school, some drivers use seating charts. Seating charts also help in reducing behavioral issues. Frequently drivers ask the schools administrators or bus coordinator for advice on student placement on the bus. Youll note that kindergarten students as well as teen parents traveling with their children will always occupy the front of the bus. Encourage your children to follow these rules when riding the bus: Always follow the drivers directions. Never distract the driver from driving unless there is immediate danger to you or others. Remain seated and keep the aisles clear. Eating, drinking, and chewing gun while riding the bus are prohibited. Never bring unsafe or unauthorized item onto the bus. Always wear your seat belt if available. Always keep your arms, legs, and head inside the bus. Do not throw item off of the bus. Always show respect for your fellow students. Keep conversation at a reasonable level and remain quiet at railroad crossings. Remember that Duval County Public Schools KNOWING THE ROPES Sharon Kasica School Liaison Officer Satan Has More Faith Than You If you just read the title youre probably asking what in the world this is about, or who in the world would say something like that. No I have not high-jacked the news station. I do not have the editor bound up while I writing my heretical manifesto. I simply believe that Satan not only has greater faith than you, but greater faith than myself, or any person that has ever walked this earth, except Christ himself. So, if you have read so far as to make it to the second paragraph below, allow me the remaining 300 words to convince you of the proposed thought above. Lucifer was there when God spoke our world into existence, Let there be light was an occurrence that astounded the angels and left them speechless for they had never seen something as this. He was there when the mountains rose, and when oceans broke on the first shores. He was there when the fate of the nation of Israel rested in the hands of a prostitute. He saw Moses, the deliverer of the enslaved nation of Israel in the basket, saw him part the waters, and saw the promises of God fulfilled. He saw the birth of his rival and destruction in the form of a baby, and he presently sees the dimensions that exist beyond ours. You see his understanding of the things of God, his trust that God will do what he says, his faith that all things work together for those who follow God, is so much stronger than you will ever have in your strongest moments and mountain top experiences. You will never have as much faith as he does, for he has seen the Father and was even there when you reached out to God for forgiveness for your own sin. What does separate you from him however, is not faith. It is WORSHIP. It is the worship of God that strikes the difference between you and him. Our denial of your our, needs, flesh, desires, wants, (seldom as we seem to do it) is what detaches us from the mind of Satan. Therefore, do no despair if you fit into the multitude that Christ declared to have so little faith. For it is your worship that divorces us from those who have faith, and yet worship themselves as the great Lucifer still does.

The last time I will pray that my daughter wont have to shower in a stall beside a football linebacker brushing his teeth in one of her dorms gender-neutral bathrooms, or notice all the potential make-out spots along the sylvan campus paths, or witness her lock eyes with cute but full-grown lacrosse players, or sigh with reluctant acceptance at the bowls of complimentary condoms scattered about the dorm common areas, health center, and student union.

For more wit and witticism from Lisa, go to www.themeatandpotatoesoflife.com A few days ago, while dropping our youngest child, Lilly, off to start her freshman year of college, I realized that a certain phase of my life as a mother was coming to an end. Over the past 23 years, I have become accustomed to putting the needs of our three children before all else. I nurtured them as babies, guided them through their school years and multiple military moves, and saw each one of them off to college. As I helped Lilly hang a poster in her dorm room a few days ago, it occurred to me that this would be the last time. The last time for all the things that have characterized an era of raising children. In an instant, my mind was flooded with an overwhelming rush of melancholy as I comprehended the end of this purpose-driven period of my existence. This is it I thought, the last time The last time I will hang a poster in a freshman dorm room, or fill a shower caddy with soaps and shampoos, or meet my daughters fresh-faced resident advisor.

THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, August 30, 2018 3 Student Code of Conduct applies in the bus as well as in the classroom. In addition of going over the rules for bus riding, also share these tips with your children. Discuss and practice the safest way to get to and from the assigned school bus stop. Show them a safe place at the stop to wait on the bus. Discourage running and playing while waiting for the bus to arrive. Never sit on the curb or the roadway while waiting on the bus. Never run into the street to catch your bus or exit your bus. And most importantly, DO NOT speak to strangers at the bus stop and never get into a car with the stranger. Determine with your children a code word that must always be used by an individual other than yourself who is picking up your children. If this individual does not know the code word, your child should immediately find help.

NAVSEA created the CEFP to develop capable leaders for NAVSEA now and in the future. The program seeks the top performers from the enterprise and provides them with a one of a kind opportunity to experience what it takes to lead at NAVSEA. Graduating the CEFP is a formal recognition of membership in the ranks of the NAVSEA League of Leaders. Bravo Zulu to the 2018 3rd Quarter Civilian Supervisor of the Quarter, Corey Shore from Engineering, and the Civilian of the Quarter, Scott Pageau from Production! Welldeserved accolades for their performance during the quarter. Jason Fowler from Engineering received a BZ from FDRMCs Combat Systems Division Head in Rota. While working on USS ROSS (DDG 71) Jason simultaneously cleared 3 Harpoon CAREPS, completed a Total Ship Readiness Assessment (TSRA) and Ballistic Missile Defense Readiness Assessment (BMDRA). Mr. Charlie Cockrell, also from Engineering, completed a highvisibility, late-notice tasker to support USS Carney (DDG 64) in Rota to perform a Calibration Capability audit. The audit included training 7 shipboard personnel in Field Calibration management, and he provided training to an additional 6 Sailors from the ROSS, ensuring they maintain their Field Calibration Activity certification. USS Gunston Hall (LSD-44) had an issue with her #4 SSDG circuit breaker so Keith Swalls from the Engineering Department, met the ship in GTMO and walked the ship through troubleshooting and repairs. Not only did Keith provide detailed training to Gunston Hall Sailors, after the completion of his primary tasking he selflessly took the time to help with NR2 & NR3 SSDGs as well (all after hours and on his own time). Ed LaFond, Ken Hallatt, and Mark Lefebvre of Supply identified configuration problems associate with a NAVSEA bulk load related to the Water Jet Propulsion system on board USS Milwaukee (LCS5). They conducted an Equipment Validation, identified multiple configuration data elements in error and coordinated corrective action directly with the Configuration Data Manager. Their actions will ensure proper maintenance documentation for all future maintenance actions. Our Dive Locker just completed two, first-time ever in-water repairs on USS Milwaukee (LCS 5). The first was a replacement steerable waterjet hose and ram replacement cofferdam install. This was a fit test for their 10x20 cofferdam, requiring some complex underwater rigging. Completing the repair in water avoids costly drydocking, a great win for SERMC as the increase in repair capability will pay future dividends as more Freedom Class LCSs are commissioned. C970 also replaced the interceptor hose/ feedback cable/ram on both port and starboard sides. The repair encompassed rigging 200-pound hydraulic ram replacements and running the electrical feedback cable and hydraulic hose hookups underwater. The Diving Supervisor was HM1 Stuart and ND3 Leyba was the Lead Diver, logging more than 39 hours of bottom time. These repairs encompassed approximately 1,000 man-hours for C970, plus many more by C300, NAVSEA OOC, and OEM workers. Other Divers involved: James Peck, ND2 Law, ND2 Braddock, ND3 Guzman, ND3 Turnwall, ND3 Robbie, ND3 Mahn and ND3 Noblit.

The future USS Marinette (LCS 25) started fabrication in February, while the future USS Nantucket (LCS 27) is scheduled to begin fabrication in the fall. LCS is a modular, reconfigurable ship designed to meet validated fleet requirements for surface warfare, antisubmarine warfare and mine countermeasures missions in the littoral region. An interchangeable mission package is embarked on each LCS and provides the primary mission systems in one of these warfare areas. Using an open architecture design, modular weapons, sensor systems and a variety of manned and unmanned vehicles to gain, sustain and exploit littoral maritime supremacy, LCS provides U.S. joint force access to critical theaters. The LCS class consists of the Freedom variant and Independence variant, designed and built by two industry teams. The Freedom variant team is led by Lockheed Martin (for the odd-numbered hulls, e.g., LCS 1). The Independence variant team is led by Austal USA (for LCS 6 and follow-on evennumbered hulls). Twenty-nine LCSs have been awarded to date, with 15 delivered to the Navy, 11 in various stages of construction and three in pre-production states. Program Executive Office for Unmanned and Small Combatants is responsible for delivering and sustaining littoral mission capabilities to the fleet. Delivering high-quality warfighting assets while balancing affordability and capability is key to supporting the nations maritime strategy. From Page 1 LCS registration date of January 31, 2019.

6 THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, August 30, 2018 Navy Establishes U.S. 2nd Fleet, VAdm Lewis Assumes Command From U.S. Fleet Forces Public Affairs Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson presided over a ceremony establishing U.S. 2nd Fleet and naming Vice Adm. Andrew Woody Lewis as the commander during a ceremony aboard the nuclear aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), Aug. 24, at Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia. Although deeply consequential, the meaning of this establishment can be summarized simply as a dynamic response to a dynamic security environment a security environment clearly articulated in the National Defense Strategy, said Richardson. We first need to understand this competitive security environment and why it demands every ounce of our tenacity, ingenuity and fighting spirit. Then we can focus on the mission and how best to accomplish it; 2nd Fleet will enhance our capacity to maneuver and fight in the Atlantic, and as a result, help to maintain Americas maritime superiority that will lead to security, influence and prosperity for our nation. Lewis assumed command as the first commander of the re-established C2F, after his confirmation by the Senate June 28. U.S. 2nd Fleet will be headquartered in Norfolk. All of Lewiss operational command tours have been on the East Coast making him intimately familiar with operations in the Atlantic. Most recently, he commanded Carrier Strike Group 12 and deployed with USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) to the U.S. 6th and 5th Fleet areas of operation. I am truly honored to lead this fleet. U.S. 2nd Fleet has a storied history, and we will honor that legacy, said Lewis. However, we will not simply pick up where we left off. We are going to aggressively and quickly build this command into an organization with operational capability. We will challenge our assumptions, recognize biases, learn and adapt from failures so as to innovate in order to build a fleet that is ready to fight. Ready to fight so we dont have to. U.S. 2nd Fleet will exercise operational and administrative authorities over assigned ships, aircraft and landing forces on the East Coast and the North Atlantic. Additionally, it will plan and conduct maritime, joint and combined operations as well as train and recommend certification of combat ready naval forces for maritime employment and operations around the globe. U.S. 2nd Fleet will fall under operational control of U.S. Fleet Forces Command. -Photo by MC1 Gary Prill Vice Adm.

THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, August 30, 2018 7 Farragut Performs Hamilton For Crew By FCA1(SW) Samantha DesJardins USS Farragut Americans celebrate Independence Day in many ways, from parades and barbeques to games and fireworks. Its a day when people come together to honor the bravery and sacrifices of our Founding Fathers and a revolution that was 18 years in the making. Many names are associated with the creation of our country: Washington, Henry, Revere, and Jefferson, to name a few. The stories of these men will forever be a part of the fabric that is the United States of America. There is one man, however, who had appeared to slip into the folds of time. We remember him in the mere seconds it takes to pull out a $10 bill; then he fades from thought as we go about our day. He was an immigrant who came to the colonies to pursue an education. That man was Alexander Hamilton. In recent years Hamilton has become a household name, thanks to the hard work and genius of Lin-Manuel Miranda, a playwright and actor who created and starred in Hamilton: An American Musical. The musical, which incorporates R&B, pop, and hip-hop, was an unconventional smash hit on Broadway. It earned many awards and gathered fans from around the world. One of those fans was Farraguts own IS1 Julianna Stevenson. Her love of the revolutionary tale inspired her to take on the challenge of bringing Hamiltons story to her shipmates. In three weeks. How does one take a Broadway show that spans two acts and lasts for hours and adapt it for a comparably short 45-minute performance? I first limited the songs to the first act cutting the time in half, says Stevenson, who directed the show. Then broke down to the songs that focused on the battles themselves in order to keep the focus on the fight for independence, which then made it to 30 min. Following the re-enlistment of AD2 Williams and an Ice Cream Social hosted by the First Class Petty Officers Association, Farraguts cast of Hamilton took to the make shift stage. The performance started off strong and the first half ended with an energetic rendition of My Shot, a popular song from the original musical. The surprise of the night came when Lt. Miller strolled to center stage wearing a make-shift wig and paper crown. King George arrived and had a message for his loyal, royal subjects. Having been cast under a blanket of secrecy, the Chief Engineer was well received by both the performers and audience and did not disappoint. His performance of Youll Be Back had everyone laughing and rushing to capture the moment with pictures and video. Wrapping up the event was the telling of Hamiltons decision to join Washington as his aide de camp, followed by the Battle of Long Island, and ending with the rebels victory and subsequent surrender of the British in Yorktown. Amidst the historical references was a stellar performance by RP2 Melinda Greene as Marquis de Lafayette punctuated by the dance moves of GSM3 Beal and GSMFN Hunter. This was actually one of the hardest rapping parts in the whole show and she blew it away. IS1 recounts of Greene, also mentioning that it was one of the male parts given to a female. When asked how the performance went, Stevenson had this to say, I was so proud of their performance that it literally brought a tear to my eye. Though I have been a part of many performances throughout my life, I had never ventured to direct before. The dedication and talent this group put in to make this performance possible was astounding. This is a memory that will always be cherished. After months of being away from home, Hamilton proved to be just what everyone needed to propel them forward and garner a second wind. The singers and dancers were rewarded with a standing ovation and the audience a memory that is sure to last. After all, Farragut and her crew are a testament to Hamiltons tenacity and the overwhelming success of The American Experiment. Performers: GSE3 Jhomari Anderson as Alexander Hamilton LS3 Dax Gallimore as Aaron Burr FC2 Jonathan Green as John Laurens RP2 Melinda Greene as Marquis de Lafayette AD2 Robert Williams as General George Washington LT Raymond Miller as King George OS3 Dandre Braxton as Hercules Mulligan GM2 Ciara Dixson as General Lee Ensemble: CTR2 Imani Bradley FCA1 Samantha DesJardins AZ1 Nichole Davis -Photos courtesy of USS Farragut Cast members of USS Farraguts production of Hamilton gather for a photo. The cast put together a version of the play about Alexander Hamilton in three weeks to entertain the ships crew. Cast members sing songs from Hamilton: An American Musical during an Icean Cream Social hosted by USS Farraguts First Class Petty Officers Association. The ship is currently deployed to the 6th Fleet area of operation.

HSM-46 Takes Flight Off Lincoln ID? Call Before You Go By Al Iannacone Sr. PSD Mayport Director At one time or another everyone affiliated with Naval Station Mayport needs to get an I.D. Card, in order to get access to the base, receive authorized benefits or for access to their computer. Here are some tips so that when you come to PSD Mayport to get an I.D. Card/CAC, or enter a family member in DEERS, etc., you will know everything you need to know have everything you need to reduce your waiting time. PSD Hours, Call First PSD is located in BLDG 298, next to BLDG 1 on Baltimore Street. Our hours are Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m.3:30 p.m. and most Saturdays from 7:30-11 a.m. If there is a Federal Holiday that week, then we will be closed the preceding Saturday.

This means Mayport is usually very busy on Saturdays. Although we are busy, PSD contract only authorizes two contractors for Saturday mornings so their workload is very high. Please come in early if you intend on coming in on a Saturday. Once maximum capacity has been met, we will need to ask you to back come another day. Basic Documents The Telephone number for I.D. Cards/ DEERS is (904) 2707614 x 300/301/131/132. The basics as far as what documents to bring are: two forms of I.D., both valid (not expired), one of which has a photo, such as a Drivers License, Passport or a valid I.D./CAC. If you are just getting married or divorced, or adding a family member than you need to bring an original (with seal) marriage license, divorce decree or birth certificate as necessary. For students, there September Highlights Emergency Planning; Commissary Patrons Can Save On Supplies By Kevin L. Robinson DeCA public affairs specialist Last year was a record-setting year for bad weather in North America with 10 hurricanes six of which were category 3 or higher wreaking havoc on the millions of people caught in their path. With grocery stores overrun by panicstricken customers caught in the storms melee, many people struggled to get muchneeded supplies. National Preparedness Month in September is a reminder of how important it is to plan for emergencies natural or manmade before they occur. A crisis can occur at any time, and National Preparedness Month reminds us to plan for an emergency before it happens, said Tracie Russ, DeCAs director of sales said. We want to reinforce to the military community that their commissaries and exchanges are benefits that save them money as they prepare their survival kits. From April through Oct. 31, DeCAs severe weather preparedness promotional package is offering various items for those survival kits at reduced prices. This package includes: beef jerky and other assorted meat snacks, soup and chili mixes, canned goods, powdered milk, cereals, batteries, airtight bags, weatherready flashlights, tape (all-weather, heavyduty shipping and duct), first-aid kits, lighters, matches, lanterns, candles, hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes. Specific promotional items may vary from store to store. The theme for this years National Preparedness Month is Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How. The month is separated into four activities: Sept. 1-8 make and practice your plan; Sept. 9-15 learn life-saving skills; Sept. 16-22 check your insurance coverage; and Sept. 23-29 save for an emergency. Generally, emergency preparedness officials suggest having a disaster supply kit that includes the following items: Water at least one gallon daily, per person (three-day supply for evacuation, two-week supply for home) Nonperishable foods canned meats, fruits, vegetables, dried fruits, nuts, raisins, cereal, crackers, cookies, energy bars, granola, peanut butter, and foods for infants and the elderly (three-day supply for evacuation, two-week supply for home) Paper goods writing paper, paper plates, paper towels and toilet paper Cooking items pots, pans, baking sheets, cooking utensils, charcoal, a grill and a manual can opener First-aid kit including bandages, medicines and prescription medications Cleaning materials bleach, sanitizing spray, and hand and laundry soap Specialty foods diet and low-calorie foods and drinks Toiletries personal hygiene items and moisture wipes Pet care items food, water, muzzle, leash, carrier, medications, medical records, and identification and immunization tags Lighting accessories flashlight, batteries, candles and matches Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA weather radio, if possible) Duct tape, scissors Multipurpose tool Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/ lease to home, passports, birth certificates and insurance policies) Cell phone with chargers Family and emergency contact information Extra cash Emergency blanket Maps of the area Blankets or sleeping bags Commissary patrons can go to commissaries. com for web links to a variety of disaster preparedness resources.
