Defense Department at forefront of energy conservation, official says
By SN William Selby
Special to American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, D.C. The Defense Department
is constantly looking for ways to proactively conserve
and reuse energy, a department official said.
"We're really leading the nation in looking at energy
and considering energy" Mindy Montgomery, deputy
director for investment, Office of the Director for
Defense Research and
Engineering, said during a
teleconference with blog-
Montgomery said that
every $10 increase in the
price of a barrel of oil rais-
es the DoD's fuel spending
by $1.3 billion per year.
The department has spent
$3 billion to $5 billion
extra each year due to the
price increase over the last
couple years, she said.
But energy conserva-
tion does more than help
to compensate for rising
prices, Montgomery said.
It makes operational sense,
too, she noted.
"Seventy percent of the
convoys in Iraq and
Afghanistan are for fuel Public service announce
and water," she said. "So if from www.energysavers.g
we can reduce those, we about renewable energy
can reduce all the security
assets that go along with all these convoys."
While DoD has made progress in energy conserva-
tion, Montgomery said, it still has a long way to go.
"Since 2005 we've reduced our total energy con-
sumption by 6 percent," Montgomery said. "On the
installation side, since 2003, we've reduced our
demand by 10 percent."
Unfortunately, reduced energy consumption doesn't
automatically translate to money saved, Montgomery
said. DoD has spent $13 billion in total energy costs
since 2005 due to rising fuel costs, she said.
"I'd like to say we've saved, but unfortunately, ener-
gy costs have gone way up," Montgomery said. "Even
though we've reduced consumption, it still costs us
more in the long run."
Montgomery said that some electricity costs have
stabilized, which should lead to savings in the near
future. Installation-specific improvements also should
lead to savings, she said.
To reduce energy consumption at installations, the
department created the Power Surety Task Force to
focus on combatant commanders' energy needs,
Montgomery said. For instance, in Iraq and
Afghanistan, soldiers were using tents that were worn
out and were not energy efficient, Montgomery said.
The task force recently
found a substance called
installation foam to spray
on the tents, which is
reducing energy consump-
tion by about 30 percent.
"Now, we're keeping
the air inside,"
Montgomery said. "By
the way, the tents are actu-
ally about 20 percent cool-
er than they ever got with
the air conditioning," she

nd energy efficiency. more fuel-efficient engines
for the next generation
Humvee, and other alternatives that may decrease ener-
gy and fuel costs, Montgomery added.
"That program is run by the Army tank and automo-
tive command," she said. "They're looking at different
drivetrains, different kinds of engines, [and] different
power systems on the vehicle."
Montgomery said the task force also has been focus-
ing on modifying technologies and looking for new
methods of power generation.
"We actually just opened a solar farm (that pro-
duces) over 14 megawatts in Nellis Air Force Base in
Nevada'" she said. "We've also, for the last 20 years,
had a geothermal plant at China Lake (Naval Air
Weapons Station, Calif.)," she added. "I want to say it

Incentivized energy conservation program

From Naval Sea Systems Command
Office of Corporate Communications
WASHINGTON (NNS) -Naval
Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA)
announced recently that Navy ships
achieved more than $99 million in
fuel cost avoidance during fiscal
year (FY) 2009 as part of the Navy's
Incentivized Energy Conservation
The i-ENCON program is a "Meet
the Fleet" initiative spearheaded by
NAVSEA to reduce ships' energy
consumption. Program sponsors con-
duct routine meetings with ship oper-
ators to review specific fuel-saving
procedures and recommend quarterly
awards for ships with the most fuel-
"These efforts increase fleet readi-
ness by enabling Sailors at sea to train
or deploy longer while spending the
same amount of money on fuel," said
Hasan Pehilvan, i-ENCON program
One of the ways NAVSEA's i-
ENCON measures fuel and cost
avoidance is through underburn, the
reported fuel rate for the quarter that's
below the ship class' average bum
rate. One hundred twenty Pacific and
Atlantic Fleet ships reported an
underbum for the third quarter fiscal
"The cumulative underbum was
14.96 percent of fuel consumption for
the past three quarters, which exceed-
ed the ENCON goal of 10 percent by
a wide margin," said Pehlivan. "This
14.96 percent underbum translates to
a cost avoidance of 1,043,000 barrels
of oil or $99 million."
This accomplishment increases
fleet readiness by saving enough fuel
to support 21 Arleigh Burke-class
destroyers (at an average of 2,500
underway hours) per year.
This performance may be attrib-
utable to ships receiving $2 million
in cash awards distributed in the
fourth quarter of each fiscal year by
Commander, Naval Surface Forces,
according to Pehlivan.
i-ENCON rewards leading fuel
conservers among underway sur-
face ships with special recognition
and cash incentives up to $67,000.
In FY 2008, 148 ships received
incentive cash awards. Award
money is routed to each command-
ing officer's discretionary funds,
which are often used to buy items
like damage control gear or to aug-
ment the ship's welfare and recre-
ation programs according to
"The incentives are very impor-
tant to i-ENCON's success,"
Pehlivan added. "It's a voluntary
program that requires real commit-
ment from ships' commanding offi-
cers, chief engineers and main
propulsion assistants. I receive calls
and emails from ships every day

Home energy check
The following is a simple checklist of energy conserva-
tion/efficiency measures to use at home.
*Turn down the temperature of your water heater to the
warm setting (1200F). You'll not only save energy, you'll
avoid scalding your hands.
Check if your water heater has an insulating blanket.
An insulating blanket will pay for itself in one year or
If you have one of those silent guzzlers, a waterbed,
make your bed today. The covers will insulate it, and
save up to one-third of the energy it uses.
Start using energy-saving settings on refrigerators,
dishwashers, washing machines, and clothes dryers.
Survey your incandescent lights for opportunities to
replace them with compact fluorescents. These new
lamps can save three-quarters of the electricity used by
incandescents. The best targets are 60-100 Watt bulbs
used several hours a day. Measure the clearance in the
fixtures to make sure they will accommodate compact
fluorescents, which are slightly bigger than incandes-
Check the age and condition of your major appliances,
especially the refrigerator. You may want to replace it
with a more energy-efficient model before it dies.
Clean or replace furnace, air-conditioner, and heat-
Visit the hardware store. Buy a water-heater blanket,
low-flow showerheads, faucet aerators, and compact
fluorescents, as needed.
Rope caulk leaky windows.
Assess your heating and cooling systems. Determine
if replacements are justified, or whether you should
retrofit them to make them work more efficiently to pro-
vide the same comfort (or better) for less energy.
Collect your utility bills. Separate electricity and fuel
bills. Target the biggest bill for energy conservation
Crawl into your attic or crawlspace and inspect for
insulation. Is there any? How much?
Insulate hot water pipes and ducts wherever they run
through unheated areas.
Seal up the largest air leaks in your house -the ones
that whistle on windy days, or feel drafty. The worst cul-
prits are usually not windows and doors, but utility cut-
throughs for pipes ("plumping penetrations"), gaps
around chimneys and recessed lights in insulated ceil-
ings, and unfinished spaces behind cupboards and
closets. Better yet, hire an energy auditor with a blower
door to point out where the worst cracks are. All the lit-
tle, invisible cracks and holes may add up to as much
as an open window or door, without you being aware.
Install a clock thermostat to set your thermostat back
automatically at night.
Schedule an energy audit (ask your utility company or
state energy office) for more expert advice on your
home as a whole.
Insulate. If your walls aren't insulated have an insula-
tion contractor blow cellulose into the walls. Bring your
attic insulation level up to snuff.
Replace aging, inefficient appliances. Even if the appli-
ance has a few useful years left, replacing it with a top-
efficiency model is generally a good investment.
Upgrade leaky windows. It may be time to replace
them with energy-efficient models or to boost their effi-
ciency with weather-stripping and storm windows.
Reduce your air conditioning costs by planting shade
trees and shrubs around your house-especially on the

Fuels team plans Super Hornet biofuels flight test
By Robert Kaper
Naval Air Systems
Command Public Affairs
Md. (NNS) The Naval
Air Systems Command
fuels team is gearing up for
biofuels flight tests in an
F/A-18 Super Hornet at
Patuxent River, by next
spring or summer, accord-
ing to NAVAIR's fuel
Rick Kamin, Navy fuels
lead, explained that before
"biofueling" the plane, the
team will first conduct lab-
oratory and rig tests at Pax
River, followed by static
engine tests with the Super
Hornet's F414 engine on a
test stand at the Lynn,
Mass., facility of manufac-
turer General Electric. The
static tests will take place
"probably in the
frame," Kamin said.
The NAVAIR fuels team
is also getting ready to kick
off a similar effort to test
and certify biofuels for use
The upcoming tests are
part of a larger effort to test
and certify promising bio-
fuels in support of the
Navy's energy strategy to
enhance energy security
and environmental stew-
ardship, including reducing
greenhouse gas emissions.
"Our major goal is a
drop-in replacement" for
the Navy's petroleum-
based fuels, Kamin said.
"The field won't know the
Fuels derived from
plants are considered car-
bon neutral. Burning them
doesn't increase the net
amount of carbon dioxide
in the atmosphere because
the carbon they contain
was originally absorbed
from the air as the plants
NAVAIR has asked for
40,000 gallons of JP-5 jet
fuel from bio-based feed-
stocks in a request for pro-
posal (RFP) issued by the
Defense Energy Support
Center. Initial laboratory
analyses and rig testing
will consume 1,500 gal-
lons; the static engine tests,
16,500 gallons; and the
flight tests, 22,000 gallons.
The feedstocks targeted are
not used for food.
Kamin said fuels
received from the JP-5
RFP may include those
made from oils produced
by plants such as camelina,
jatropha and algae.
"We won't know for
sure what we're going to
get until the procurement
process is completed," he
said. The contract signing
is expected to take place
Camelina, also known
as gold-of-pleasure or false
flax, is in the same family
as rapeseed, the source of
canola oil. Often consid-
ered a weed, camelina is
cultivated today for the
high quality oil its seeds
produce, both for human
consumption and conver-
sion to biodiesel.
Jatropha is a tough woody
plant that can grow in arid
conditions unsuitable for
most food crops. Its seeds
produce oil that's unfit for
human consumption but can
be converted to fuel.
Algae can be grown in
vats or ponds under con-
trolled conditions that
maximize output and har-
vesting efficiency. Algae's
oil is produced within indi-
Oils harvested from the
plants are refined into fuel
with conventional petrole-
um refinery processes.

els that will not be tested

for seal swelling," Kamin
noted. "The easiest way to
get these properties back in
is with a blend with petrole-
Kamin emphasized that
the Navy will not be pro-
ducing any biofuels itself.
Fuel for all military services
is purchased by the Defense
Energy Support Center.
"We're responsible for
fuel specification require-
ments. Our main responsi-
bility is to test and certify
the alternative fuels for
inclusion in our specifica-
tions," he said.
The fuels team will ini-
tially apply three categories
of standard tests to the fuels
received in response to the
RFP: analytical chemistry
- using instruments such
as a mass spectrometer to
determine chemical com-
position and structure, "wet
the fuels' response in specif-
ic chemical reactions and
rig test properties such as
water separability, to deter-
mine how the fuels will
react in aircraft and in con-
ditions typical of Navy
operating conditions, which
include long-term storage.
"Storage stability is a
unique military and Navy
requirement not required in
the commercial world,"
"We're trying to certify
by families, to come up
with a spec for an approved
class of feedstocks, such as
oil shale, petroleum,
hydrotreated renewable or
coal," he said. The specifi-
cations of each family will
be determined initially
through the full battery of
chemical analysis, physical
properties, static engine
tests and flight tests.
The Navy plans to have
test and certification com-
pleted on the most promis-
ing alternative fuel candi-
dates no later than 2013,
Kamin said. As each candi-
date is approved for use, it
will be added to the Navy's
JP-5 (aircraft) and F-76
(ship propulsion fuel) spec-
ifications. Once in the spec-
ification, the Defense
Energy Support Center can
buy the fuel to meet Navy
requirements from the low-
est-cost provider. Actual
usage in the fleet will
depend on industry produc-

Iraq energy efficiency helps environment, saves money
By Christen N. McCluney
Special to American Forces Press Service
Multinational Security Transition Command Iraq
officials are working to boost energy efficiency in
the Iraqi infrastructure to help the environment and
boost cost savings, command officials said.
Energy efficiency affects the environment by
reducing air pollution and the economy by reduc-
ing fuel costs.
"Since energy impacts the environment and the
economy, it makes sense to ensure that the con-
struction of the Iraqi security infrastructure is done
in the most energy-efficient manner. This will
properly set the conditions needed to encourage
cost savings and employ sound environmental
practices," Air Force Lt. Col. Thomas N. Williams
Jr., chief of planning for the command's engineer-
ing directorate, said yesterday during a "DoDLive"
bloggers roundtable from Baghdad.
The initiatives include training Iraqi forces to
boost their environmental efficiency by perform-
ing proper maintenance on vehicles and power
generators, Williams said. By doing so, he
explained, they will burn less oil, which will
increase cost efficiency and decrease pollutants in
the environment. Other training includes fuel con-
sumption reduction, load balancing, preventive
maintenance, leak detection, proper collection and
disposal of used oil and hazardous material han-
"Trying to manage resources and use them care-
fully has a positive impact on the economy and the
environment," Williams said.
Iraqis are seeing the effects of drought on their
agriculture, Williams said, and need to be attentive
to irrigation. They also are beginning to realize the
impact of dumping oil and waste products in water
instead of recycling or properly disposing of them.
"Energy is a nonrenewable resource, so you do
want to manage it as carefully as possible," he said.
"The better we manage it now and the more ener-
gy efficient we are now, the longer we have it to set
up more secure infrastructures."
Williams added command officials are working
to train Iraqis to maintain facilities so their efforts
continue long after U.S. forces depart the country.
By keeping the focus on energy efficiency, he said,
the work will have a long-lasting impact.
"When you look at the three E's energy, envi-
ronment and economy they are very interactive
and complementary to each other," he said. "We
think that concentrating on the energy aspect will
have a bigger impact on the other two."
Along with helping to build Iraqi infrastructure,
Williams said, energy efficiency also will help to
keep the gains already made with Iraqi security.

National Weather Service: Whiting Field is 'storm ready'
By Jay Cope
NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs
Hurricane season is still in
full swing, and Naval Air
Station Whiting Field has the
National Weather Service's
vote of confidence that the
base is prepared if a major
storm should occur.
NWS assigned their
"storm ready" designation to
the base during a short pre-
sentation Sept. 23.
NAS Whiting Field is the
first military installation in
Northwest Florida and only
the ninth nationwide to
receive "storm ready"
Representatives from the
regional NWS office in
Mobile traveled to Milton to
present the plaque and the
signs recognizing the base's
new status to the base com-
manding officer Capt.
"This is a great accom-
plishment for Whiting Field,"
Sadsad said. "We have been
training and preparing, and if
something were to hit us, we
know we would be as pre-
pared as we can be."

that everything was in order,"
John Purdy, senior meteorol-

of the NWS said.
"The base exceeded quali-

Service members can
weather financial storm
By Samantha Quigley
American Forces Press Service
Servicemembers and their
families can weather the
"perfect storm" of credit, sav-
ings and banking crises;
bailouts; market instability;
and foreclosures, if they stay
financially prepared the
Pentagon's personal finance
director said here recently.
Dave Julian urged those
attending the Defense
Department Joint Family
Readiness Conference here
earlier this month to save
more than the average
"Back before (the reces-
sion), the average American
spent $1.22 for every dollar
they made," Julian said. "If
you put that in real dollars,
you make $30,000 a year,
you're spending close to
"The bottom line is, that's
the average American and we
can't have our servicemem-
bers and families ... afford to
be average," he added.
A recent report published
in the American
said money is a "top source
of stress for adults," he said.
Many people don't under-
stand how credit affects their
lives, and lead to unhealthy
coping behaviors, a loss of
sleep, strained personal and
and other long- and short-
term health effects, Julian
Studies also have linked
financial stress as a factor in
suicides, he said.
"The Army did say in
2006, (in) 11 percent of the
suicides they had, finances
were a known stressor,"
Being financially ready,
which includes having good
credit, can save a person at
least $250,000 in interest over
the course of a lifetime,
While that kind of savings
should be a good incentive,
servicemembers have a
greater motivator: mission
readiness. Financial readiness
begets mission readiness,
If a service member has
bad credit or a bankruptcy or
glaring signs of financial
unpreparedness, they also
jeopardize any security clear-
ance they may have and con-
sequently, mission readiness.
Service members aren't
immune to economic trends,
but unlike much of the gener-
al population, servicemem-
bers have some resources and
protections, Julian said.
"If you take a look at what
we provide or what service-
members and their families
have access to, it really can
help them avoid some of those
pitfalls that are out there," he
"We have counselors in our
family readiness center ... we
have command financial spe-
cialists embedded in the units.
"We've got online
resources like Military
OneSource ... if they don't
feel comfortable walking into
the family center or they don't
live near a base," he said.
Other resources include
Military Saves, Military
Financial Readiness" section.
The department also works
with other financial readiness
partners like In Charge
Institute, FINRA Investor
Education Program, the
Better Business Bureau
Military Line and the Federal
Trade Commission, among
Through these resources,
servicemembers can learn
how to start down the road to
financial success and what
tools are available to help

Fire Prevention Week kicks off Oct. 4-10
Submitted by Inspector Steven Bulke
Fire Prevention Week was
established to commemorate
the Great Chicago Fire, the
tragic 1871 conflagration that killed
more than 250 people, left 100,000
homeless, destroyed more than
17,400 structures and burned more
than 2,000 acres.
The fire began on Oct. 8, but continued into and did
most of its damage on Oct. 9, 1871.
According to popular legend, the fire broke out
after a cow belonging to Catherine O'Leary -
kicked over a lamp, setting first the barn, then the
whole city on fire. Chances are you've heard some
version of this story yourself; people have been blam-
ing the Great Chicago Fire on the cow and O'Leary,
for more than 130 years. But recent research by
Chicago historian Robert Cromie has helped to
debunk this version of events.
The "Moo" myth: Like any good story, the "case
of the cow" has some truth to it. The great fire almost
certainly started near the barn where O'Leary kept her
five milking cows. But there is no proof that O'Leary
was in the barn when the fire broke out or that a
jumpy cow sparked the blaze. O'Leary herself swore
that she'd been in bed early that night, and that the
cows were also tucked in for the evening.
But if a cow wasn't to blame for the huge fire, what
was? Over the years, journalists and historians have
offered plenty of theories. Some blamed the blaze on
a couple of neighborhood boys who were near the
barn sneaking cigarettes. Others believed that a neigh-
bor of the O'Leary's may have started the fire. Some
people have speculated that a fiery meteorite may
have fallen to earth on Oct. 8, starting several fires that
day in Michigan and Wisconsin, as well as in
The biggest blaze that week: While the Great
Chicago Fire was the best-known blaze to start during
this fiery two-day stretch, it wasn't the biggest. That
distinction goes to the Peshtigo Fire, the most devas-
tating forest fire in American history. The fire, which
also occurred Oct. 8, 1871, and roared through
Northeast Wisconsin, burning down 16 towns, killing
1,152 people and scorching 1.2 million acres before it
Historical accounts of the fire say that the blaze
began when several railroad workers clearing land for
tracks unintentionally started a brush fire. Before
long, the fast-moving flames were whipping through
the area "like a tornado," some survivors said. It was
the small town of Peshtigo, Wis., that suffered the
worst damage. Within an hour, the entire town had
Eight decades of fire prevention: Those who sur-
vived the Chicago and Peshtigo fires never forgot
what they'd been through; both blazes produced count-
less tales of bravery and heroism. But the fires also
changed the way that firefighters and public officials
thought about fire safety. On the 40th anniversary of
the Great Chicago Fire, the Fire Marshals Association
of North America (today known as the International
Fire Marshals Association), decided that the anniver-
sary of the Great Chicago Fire should henceforth be
observed not with festivities, but in a way that would
keep the public informed about the importance of fire
prevention. The commemoration grew incrementally
official over the years.
In 1920, President Woodrow Wilson issued the first
National Fire Prevention Day proclamation, and since
1922, Fire Prevention Week has been observed on the
Sunday through Saturday period in which Oct. 9 falls.
According to the National Archives and Records
Administration's Library Information Center, Fire
Prevention Week is the longest running public health
and safety observance on record. The president of the
United States has signed a proclamation proclaiming a
national observance during that week every year since
to prevent burns
When we think of things in our
homes that might cause burs, there
are some obvious culprits. Curling
irons. Stoves. Radiators. Tap water?
As surprising as it sounds, it's
true. Each year thousands of emer-
gency room visits are attributed to
scalds injuries caused by hot liq-
uid or steam. Adults often experi-
ence mild scalds, perhaps when
washing dishes, and quickly adjust
the temperature without a second
thought. But older adults and chil-
dren's skin is much more sensitive
and can sustain a bum in a matter of
Simple acts such as setting your
water heater's thermostat to no high-
er than 120 degrees Fahrenheit, and
installing "anti-scald" devices on tub
faucets and shower heads can help
protect you and your family from
scalds. But these measures alone are
not enough. Test your water at the
faucet using a cooking thermometer
to make sure it is no higher than 100
degrees Fahrenheit. Even if your
water heater is set no higher than 120
degrees Fahrenheit, use your wrist,
elbow, or the back of your hand as
your main guide.
Vigilance is key in bum preven-
tion. Always test the water before
placing a child or yourself into the
tub. The water should feel warm, not
hot. Before you put your child in the
tub, test the temperature with your
wrist, elbow, or the back of your
hand. If you're using a thermometer
with a read-out, remember that bath
water should be no more than 100
Of course, tap water isn't the only
liquid that can cause bur injuries.
Other precautions you can take to
keep your family safe from bums
Keep hot foods and liquids away
from tables and counter edges so they
cannot be pulled or knocked over.
Never hold a child in your arms
while preparing hot food or drinking
a hot beverage.
Teach children that hot things
Wear short or closefitting
sleeves when cooking.
All the vigilance in the world may
not be sufficient to prevent every sin-
gle scald or bum. That is why it is
also important to know how to treat
a bum. Run the burned area under
cool water right away for three-five
minutes and then cover with a clean,
dry cloth. If the bum is bigger than
your fist or if you have questions, get
While Fire Prevention Week is an
opportune time to practice fire safe-
ty in your home, we hope that you
will keep these lessons with you year
round and "Stay Fire Smart."

Doggone smart dachshund vs. leopard
aving I' A wealthy man decided to go on a safari in Africa. He took his faith-
av g I ful pet dachshund along for company. One day, the dachshund starts
chasing butterflies and before long the dachshund discovers that he
is lost. So, while wandering about, he noticed a leopard heading
rapidly in his direction with the obvious intention of having him for
lunch. The dachshund noticed some bones on the ground close by,
and immediately settled down to chew on the bones with his back to
the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the dachs-
hund exclaimed loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard. I won-
der if there are any more around here." Hearing this, the leopard halt-
ed his attack in mid-stride, as a look of terror overcame him, and
Sslunk away into the trees. "Whew," the leopard said. "That was close.
That dachshund nearly had me."
Meanwhile, a monkey, who had been watching the whole scene
from a nearby tree, figured he could put this knowledge to good use
and trade it for protection from the leopard. So, off he went. But the
dachshund saw him heading after the leopard with great speed, and
figured that something must be up.
The monkey soon caught up with the leopard, spilled the beans and
struck a deal for himself with the leopard. The leopard was furious at
being made a fool of and said, "Here, monkey, hop on my back and
see what's going to happen to that conniving canine."
So the dachshund saw the leopard coming with the monkey on his
back. But instead of running, the dog sat down with his back to his
attackers, pretending he hadn't seen them yet ... and just when they
got close enough to hear, the dachshund said, "Where's that dang
i elected. monkey? Sent him off half an hour ago to bring me another leopard."

William L. (Lynn) Coleman is retiring today
(Oct. 2) after 43 years and 15,000 hours of mili-
tary and military contract flying. Since March
2004, Lynn has been manager L-3 Vertex
Aerospace Flight Operations at NAS Pensacola.
L-3 Vertex Aerospace conducts T-39 training
flights for Training Wing Six's Training Squadron
Four (VT-4) and Training Squadron Eighty-Six
Lynn was an Air Force brat, born in Nebraska
in 1943 and lived in Colorado, California,
Alabama, Tennessee and Guam as his father
moved with the Air Force. Upon graduation from
high school in Oak Ridge, Tenn., he was appoint-
ed to the U. S. Air Force Academy. After gradua-
tion and commissioning as a second lieutenant, he
completed flight training and received pilot's sil-
ver wings at Reese AFB, Texas. Lynn continued to
Davis Monthan AFB, for advanced tactical train-
ing in the F-4 Phantom. Lynn's first duty assign-
ment was to the 92nd Tactical Fighter Squadron
(TFS) at RAF Bentwaters, United Kingdom.
While there, his squadron's primary mission was
nuclear strike alert, with a secondary air to air/air
to ground attack role. Lynn's squadron was one of
the last to use Wheelus AFB, Libya, as their pri-
mary training location.
In 1970, Lynn received orders to Vietnam as an
0-2 forward air controller (FAC), assigned to the
19th Tactical Air Support Squadron near Saigon.
He spent the next year living with, providing visu-
al reconnaissance, and controlling close air sup-
port (CAS) attack missions for U S. Army combat
units in action across Vietnam and Cambodia.
Lynn flew more than 800 combat hours, was
twice hit by ground fire and earned 12 Air
Medals. He also received the Distinguished
Flying Cross for a secret mission, controlling
night CAS in support of a trapped river convoy
along the Mekong River in Cambodia.
From 1972 through 1973, Lynn was a jump-
qualified air and ground FAC at Shaw AFB, S.C.
supporting the 82nd Airborne at Fort Bragg, N.C.
At the end of this assignment he had flown 1,500
combat and tactical training hours in the 0-2 air-
In 1973, Lynn returned to flying the F-4s at
Eglin AFB. While there he became the initial
operations officer of the newly formed 59th TFS,
suffered through lots of simulator time and limit-
ed flight time due to post war constraints and
helped deliver new F-4Es to Israel.
Lynn's next assignment was chief, range oper-
ations, Gila Bend Bombing and Gunnery Range.
During this tour he was singularly recognized by
the Tactical Air Command general for accom-
plishing major tactical range upgrades and host-
ing the annual NATO Chiefs of Staff Firepower
Demonstration previously held at Nellis ranges.
From 1977-1979, Lynn was an instructor pilot
(IP) at the 425 Tactical Fighter Training Squadron
(Foreign Military Assistance) at Williams AFB,
Ariz., where he trained international pilots from
numerous countries and USAF pilots enroute
worldwide as instructors and military assistance
group commanders. Lynn also augmented Air
Force aggressor unit operations.
From 1979-1982, Lynn had his final F-4
assignment as 52nd TFW chief of safety,
Spangdahlem AB, Germany, with a final total of
more than 2,500 hours in aircraft.
Lynn's final Air Force tour was as executive
officer, 436th TFTS (AT-38), Holloman AFB,
N.M., which he most remembers for the team he
led being unbeaten in monthly "Turkey Shoots"
and defeating teams in far more capable F-4, F-
111 and A-lOs in TAC's bi-annual "Gunsmoke"
competition. After 1,000 hours in the AT-38 and
5,000 hours in all Air Force aircraft, Lynn retired
in 1986 and moved immediately to Pensacola and
began flying T-47s as a contract pilot in what was
at the time the US.Navy's undergraduate naval
flight officer training program.
Lynn flew 3,000 hours in the T-47, transitioned
to the T-39 in 1991, and has flown more than
7,000 hours in the T-39. He moved from contract
pilot, to supervisor, training and safety chief and
finally to manager, flight operations. Lynn noted
that he has flown with many students who came
back as instructors, some more than once, some
instructors who came back as squadron comman-
ders, and at least one returned as Training Wing
Six Commodore, Capt. Lee Little, with whom he
flew her last flight in the T-39.
Lynn is married to the former Chrys
Suntheimer. They have one son, Matt, who lives
in Gainesville. Lynn has two sons by a previous
marriage, Glen and Greg, who live in Tennessee.
Lynn's hobbies are sailing, backgammon and golf,
which he expects to spend much more time prac-
ticing when he and Chrys move to East Tennessee
following their retirement.

But that doesn't stop Tom
from going after her, again
and again, like a modem Don
Quixote, with all his might
Suddenly, Tom is in love not
just with a lovely, witty, intel-
ligent woman but with the
very idea of Summer, the very
idea of a love that still has the
power to shock the heart and
stop the world.
The fuse is lit on Day One
when Tom, a would-be archi-
tect turned sappy greeting
card writer, encounters
Summer, his boss's breezy,
beautiful new secretary, fresh
off the plane from Michigan.
Though seemingly out of
his league, Tom soon discov-
ers he shares plenty in com-
mon with Summer.
By Day 31, things are mov-
ing ahead, albeit "casually."
By Day 32, Tom is irrepara-
bly smitten, living in a giddy,
fantastical world of Summer
on his mind.
By Day 185, things are in
serious limbo but not with-
And as the story winds
backward and forward
through Tom and Summer's
on-again, off-again, some-
times blissful, often tumul-
tuous dalliance all of
which adds up to a kaleido-
scopic portrait of why, and
how, we still struggle so
laughably, cringingly hard to
make sense of love and to
hopefully make it real.

And you may have considered hiring an out of state lawyer
whose ads you've seen on cable TV. But before hiring them, con-
sider these issues:
out of state lawyers often are not involved in the handling
of your case because they refer all aspects of the case to
other out of state lawyers;
communication problems can be compounded with out of
state lawyers, which could adversely affect your case and
cause you more stress during a difficult time.
Before answering one of those out of state TV ads, why
not discuss your case with a local lawyer?
CALL LOCAL ATTORNEY
A. EDWARD CANGELOSI
310 E. Government Street Pensacola
If your case must be filed out of state, we will associate local counsel there to file suit in that state,
but remain your local counsel here.
The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based upon advertisements. Before you decide,
