World War II sub vets ashore for reunion


By MCSN Eric Tretter
Periscope Staff


Last week, World War II
and Cold War submarine
veterans began trickling in
to Camden County. Wearing
blue-and-black vests covered
with patches identifying their
former bases and boats of ori-
gins, the veterans shared sto-
ries and embraced memories
of times gone by in submari-
ner history.
"This is one of their happi-
est times, said John Crouse,
manager of The St. Marys
Submarine Museum. "They all
love getting together, and this
is the second or third largest
event in the country. We have
them come from all over, so
they get to see shipmates they
haven't seen for years."
As World War II submarine
veteran Bill Castleberry Jr. put
it, "I have shipmates that are
still living like me. You never
forget them, and they don't
forget you."
The weekly calendar of
events included several SSBN
boat tours, Thursday's break-
fast atthe NSB Kings BayGalley,
a golf tournament, Friday's
World War
II Memorial "Our

II vets," Crouse said. "We also
have the Cold War guys, so
there are a lot of 50s- and 60s-
year boats and nuclear boats
from the 60s and 70s, along
with their families."'
The festivities were centered
around the service held Friday
at the Submarine Veterans
of World War II Memorial
Pavilion in front of Trident
Training Facility.


Nearly 50 World War II submarine veterans stand near the Submarine Veterans of World War II Memorial Pavilion.

Though the ceremonies and
festivities are meaningful for
these men, it is the sharing of
experiences that garners the
true excitement of the veter-
ans. Here are just a taste of the
personalities and stories float-
ing around Camden County
last week.
Bill Castleberry Jr. found his
interests in U.S. Navy subma-
rines from 1930s pulp maga-
zine stories about German
U-Boats. He spent much of
World War II aboard subma-
rines and much of the past
week in front of a crowd,
here and seen praising mili-
tary medical personnel at the
Wounded Warriors Day in St.
Marys. He fondly remembers
the Pharmacist's Mate who
aided him during the war.
"I had an air-locked door
open on my heel as I was
walking away from it there
should've been a rubber gas-
ket on the bottom of it. Almost
severed the tendon," he said.

forthe USS Greenfish, sending
Barbero to her resting place
deep beneath the Pacific not
far from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
Khuen explained how he
was a member of the five-man
team an engineman, elec-
trician, auxiliaryman, quarter-
master and an officer who
took the Barbero out and put
it on remote control.
"A submarine rescue ves-
sel pulled alongside, and we
jumped on board that ship;'," he
said. "The rescue vessel moved
out about a mile or two, and
then the Greenfish fired the
torpedo that hit the Barbero
but didn't sink her though.
From what I understand, they
dropped bombs, fired rockets

New ward ready


at NH Jacksonville


By Loren Barnes

"What a gorgeous ward!"
Those were the first
words from Naval Hospital
Jacksonville Commanding
Officer Capt. Bruce Gillingham
in his remarks at a ribbon cut-
ting ceremony on Oct. 29 for
the hospital's newly renovated
Multi-service Ward.
The ward's $5 million, 20,000
square-foot renovation was
just completed by C. Young
Construction of Jacksonville.
Located on the 7th floor of the
hospital, the "This is a

This includes two new isola-

tions and staff rooms have also
been totally upgraded.
Gillingham said, "This will
tangibly pull together the hos-
pital's great care and services
with a great new facility."'
The first patients are expect-
ed to enter the new ward on
Nov. 5.
C. Coleman Young Jr. spoke
for his construction team at the
ceremony. He said it was an
honor to provide a better facil-

ity to our service members. He
said, "This is an expression of
our appreciation for what they
do defending our country." He
also noted that $4.9 million of
the project's fundingwas spent
locally; $2.4 million went to
payroll for local employees.
As to how his team worked
with the Navy he said, "We like
to build a good rapport with
our customers." The firm has
completed several projects for
the hospital over the years.
Those included the ER reno-

said throughout the work
Coleman's crews took care
to minimize the impact on

how to work in a patient care
environment," he said.
This is just the latest of a
series of improvements for the


Naval Hospital. It is part of

Projects under way include a
$35.8 million, three-story sur-

include a pandemic flu ware-
house, a Facilities Department
building, two new parking lots
and upgrades to all the hospi-

million laboratory renovation.


Wounded Warrior


Day observed


By MCSN Eric Tretter
Periscope Staff


The second annual
Wounded Warrior Day kicked
off with a walk from St. Mary's
Oak Grove Cemetery at 9:30
a.m. Saturday.
The leather-and-denim-
clad Armed Forces of America
Motorcycle Club led the Kings
Bay Battalion Color Guard
Marines, the Ft. Stewart, Ga.,
Wounded Transition Unit of
injured soldiers, the Veteran's
Support Organization's
Georgia chapter, Cub Scouts,
Junior ROTC members and
various civilians along with
community leaders and orga-
nizers towards Howard Gilman
Waterfront Park, in honor and
remembrance of injured ser-
vice members.
The event was originally
spearheaded by the efforts of
Kathy Galarita and her patri-
otic poems filled with ver-
sus she attributes to the divine
intervention of god. As she
said, "God winks and God was
winking at me, tapping me on
the shoulder to start and sup-
port this event."
Galarita's spirited vers-
es, such as Our Wounded
Treasures; Where Soldiers Lay;
The Price of Freedom; Today,
They Still Battle!; Freedom is
Never Free!; and God Gave
American to Me! exemplify her
love of country and the brave


men and women who have
preserved it throughout wars
and conflicts past and pres-
ent.
"They are loyal citizens of
this nation, good neighbors
in the community and coura-
geous defenders of our way
of life;'," said St. Marys Mayor
Rowland Eskridge Sr. during
his welcome speech at the
memorial. "We are blessed to
live a society that fosters such
unselfish service and sacri-
fices."'
One of the stipulations
Galarita made upon suggest-
ing this event to St. Mary's
city council members was the
strong presence of children.
And present they were.
Home-schooled Haley
Pittman sang America and
Battle-Hymn of the Republic
in front of the large crowd. Ian
Cooper played Armed Forces
Medley and Amazing Grace
with his saxophone.
The St. Mary's Middle
School Choir sang The Liberty
Song, This is My Country and
The Wind Beneath My Wings.
Jamoni Brown of St. Marys
Middle School capped the
music with God Bless the USA
followed by Amazing Grace.
Master of ceremonies Doug
Vaught introduced a plethora
of guests, including retired

LOCAL NEWS VIEWS


Briefly Speaking


Suggestions for Improving The Periscope?
Do you see an event on base you think deserves cover-
age in the Periscope? Let us know by calling Editor Bill
Wesselhoff at 573-4719 or sending an e-mail to perisco-
pekb@comcast.net.

Personnel Transaction Timeliness is Important
Department of Defense (DoD) policy is to achieve a 99
percent timeliness rate for associated pay transactions.
While the local PSD has a major role and responsibility in
the timely submission of transactions, personnel adminis-
trations, CPCs, the service member and his/her command
is ultimately responsible for providing the required docu-
mentation to PSD in a timely manner.
It is imperative that personnel who divorce, marry, have
a child, occupy government quarters or move out in the
economy, come to PSD within five working days to update
their Page Two and to turn in all associated documenta-
tion. This will ensure that all pay entitlements are either
stopped, changed or started in a timely manner, ensuring
no overpayments are posted to the service members pay
account.
It is imperative that your CPCs, Admin Office's and
Chain of Commands disseminate this information to your
Sailors to ensure they understand the importance of turn-
ing in their paperwork to PSD as soon as it is available.
Timeliness associated with personnel transactions (officer
and enlisted), specifically: Gains/Losses/Reenlistments/
Extensions/UAs/NJPs/Crew Changes/Leave impact oper-
ational planning, personnel accounting, and mission suc-
cess. To be consistent with DOD pay policy, Navy policy
is to achieve a 99 percent timeliness rate for all personnel
transactions within four working days of the effective date.
Effective immediately, PSD Kings Bay will closely monitor
all paperwork received for submission and will provide
feedback on each commands timeliness via an end of
month message.

New Photo Requirement For Officer Records
All officers are now required to have a full-length color
photograph in their official military file, according to
NAVADMIN 103/07 distributed to the fleet April 24. Officers
who do not have a photograph on the electronic military
personnel records system in their current grade must sub-
mit a photograph. The preferred uniform will be service
khaki without a cover. When service khaki is unavailable,
any regulation uniform is acceptable.
The public affairs center detachment located at NS
Mayport, Fla. is the tri-base source for all official photo-
graphs. It is recommended officers needing a full-length
photo for selection board purposes call (904) 270-7762 and
set up an appointment with the detachment. When official
facilities are not available, officers are authorized to use
commercial sources. If commercial sources are unavail-
able, officer may submit any color photograph that com-
plies with the requirements outlined in MILPERSMAN
1070-180.

PSD Hours
PSD Kings Bay's ID card section is pleased to announce
expanded service hours. To better serve the base com-
munity, the ID card section will be open every Saturday

On The Home Front


Military offers some fantastic services


By Beth Wilson
Periscope Contributor


Ninety-nine days after I
married my handsome
man in uniform he
was gone. I found myself in a
new city, as a new Navy wife.
I barely understood this "mili-
tary world;'," let alone under-
stand the acronyms that now
defined my life.
This column is a look at
some of our benefits we enjoy
as spouses. While not exhaus-
tive this will get you started.
The most widely known ben-
efit the military provides is the
medical care, called Tri-Care.
You can opt to use an MTF
(military treatment facility)
or select other plans which
enable you to choose civilian
providers. www.tricareonline.
mil outlines options and relat-
ed fees.
To enroll in medical cover-
age your service member must
add you to his record (called a
"page 2") to have you added to
DEERS (Defense Enrollment
Eligibility Reporting System).
Enrollment in DEERs is the
prerequisite to obtaining
your medical coverage. Once
in DEERS a quick trip to the
local Tri-Care office (or MTF)
will complete your medical
enrollment. Many Tri-Care
locations offer orientations
for new spouses, contact your


Beth Wilson
Periscope Contributor


local Tri-Care office for more
information.
Tri-Care provides a den-
tal plan through United
Concordia. www.tricareden-
talprogram.com provides
information on the plan bene-
fits and fees. Enrollment in the
dental plan is separate from
medical. Once in DEERS you
can enroll in the dental plan
right on this Web site.
Mentioned last week, the
FFSC (Fleet & Family Service
Center) and ACS (Army
Community Services) are
there to offer support, edu-
cation and resources to assist
you in adapting to military
life. All services, opportunities
and classes provided by these
organizations are free. Be a
frequent visitor and utilize this
great, free resource.
The DoD (Department of
Defense) supports an organ-


zation called Morale, Welfare
and Recreation or MWR.
MWR provides "quality sup-
port and recreational services
that contribute to the reten-
tion, readiness, mental, physi-
cal and emotional well-being"
of service members. Family
members, retirees and their
dependents are eligible to uti-
lize these services and oppor-
tunities. Check out www.mwr.
navy.mil for information about
this benefit, and contact your
base MWR office for specifics
at your location. MWR manag-
es the gym (yes, you can work
out there for free), movie the-
ater (free or low cost movies
including sneak previews and
special shows), bowling (low
cost, including classes, special
events, parties and leagues)
and much more. MWR pro-
vides rentals (everything from
a barbecue to boats, tables and
chairs and campers to name a
few), maintains resorts, cab-
ins and RV parks across the
world at great discounts. IT&T
(Information, Ticket & Tours),
a program of MWR provides
discounted tickets to local and
national attractions (Disney,
etc) as well as discount tick-
ets to local movies theaters.
They sponsor trips to local
attractions that often include
a boxed meal, transportation
at a low fee. Check them out!
The military offers shopping
facilities as part of our benefit.


The Commissary (DeCA or the
Defense Commissary Agency)
operates grocery stores
around the world. Mandated
by congress all items are sold
at cost plus a 4.5 percent sur-
charge (not a tax, reinvested
for improvements and expan-
sions). Recent independent
(Market Basket) surveys indi-
cate the commissary offers
patrons a 35 percent savings
overall compared to civilian
grocery stores yes, even dis-
count stores.
Another shopping privilege
is the Exchange System or the
military department store.
For the Air Force and Army
it is administered by AAFES
(Army-Air Force Exchange
Service) and is commonly
called the PX (Post Exchange).
The Navy Exchange Service
(NEX) is the Navy's coun-
terpart and is referred to as
'the exchange' or 'the NEX.'
These stores provide quality
merchandise at an average 15
percent savings over civilian
markets and no sales tax an
added savings. In addition,
both exchanges offer a price
match guarantee. If you see
an item at another store for
less, the NEX or PX will match
that price. Both stores have an
online presence (www.aafes.
com or www.navy-nex.com)

Anything But Dependent


'If I knew what I know now' a loaded question


By Marie Hobson
Periscope Contributor


W uld you choose this
ife, aka-the military,
if you knew then
what you know now?
Wow, that's a loaded ques-
tion. I was taken back a bit
when asked this by a non-mili-
tary friend. She has watched
me for years juggle the life of
a single mom with a part-time
husband. This girlfriend has
my life, but as a civilian. Our
kids are about the same age,
our husbands are very similar.
So why do we have trouble
relating after years of friend-
ship? Well, because of one
rather minor detail, my hus-
band is in the Navy.
Her husband is home every
night. And not only is he home,
she makes dinner at the same
time every night because her
husband is actually home at
the same time every night. I
can't imagine what that must
be like. He never works week-
ends or holidays. He never
goes away on business.
Once he went on a fishing
trip for three days and she
called me exhausted saying,
"I know exactly how you must
feel!" I didn't know whether
to laugh because that was the
funniest thing that I had ever
heard, or cry because she real-
ly had no clue. I didn't say a
word about it to her. I just told
her that it was OK and to focus
on the fact that her husband
would be home soon. At that
point, I had four months until I
would see my husband again.
She has never had to make
a life altering decision alone;


Marie Hobson
Periscope Contributor


in fact, I don't think she has
ever had to do anything com-
pletely alone. At any time of
the day, she can pick up the
phone and talk to her hus-
band. She doesn't worry about
all the "what ifs," and she
thinks Power of Attorneys are
just for elderly people. When
she is sick, her husband takes
the kids, and when she needs
a break, she is surrounded by
family and has her husband
to take some of the stress and
weight off her shoulders.
I tried to rationalize in my
head what the purpose of the
question was. She seemed to
want to prove a point. I knew
by the way she asked it that
there was a part two, or a fol-
low up question. So, I took a
deep breathe and answered
truthfully. "Yes', I said. I was
almost as shocked as she
was with my answer. I guess
because I never really thought
about it.
She quickly came in with
the low blow Part II. "So, you
would choose for your hus-
band to be away from you and
the kids this much if you could
do it all over!?"


Ah ha! I knew it was com-
ing, but I wasn't prepared.
She said it with such energy
in her voice. I stayed calm and
replied, "it's complicated."
Of course, now I look back
and think of all the smart and
witty things that I could have
replied with, but I was caught
so off guard that I was more
hurt than defensive. I told my
friend that I had to go, din-
ner was almost done and just
as quickly as the conversation
started, it was over. I had din-
ner with my children around
our big round dining table; my
husbands' seat across from me
was empty.
There is no right answer. I
love my husband more every
day. He is truly my best friend.
In fact, I feel that there is a
depth to our relationship that
my girlfriend wouldn't under-
stand. I don't want to be away
from him. My husband doesn't
want to be away from the kids
and me. When he joined the
Navy, it was our decision.
That's why my girlfriend asked
the question.
I didn't fall for a military
guy. The man that I fell for
became a military guy. So,
after many long nights, ER vis-
its, broken cars and applianc-
es, hurricanes, family deaths,
my own health scares, buying
houses, birthdays, anniversa-
ries, holidays and many spe-
cial moments ... all spent with-
out my husband, my answer
stays the same. Yes, I would
do it all over again. I wouldn't
change a thing. OK, so I'm
lying. Maybe I would throw
in a few more days at home
with the husband, but real-


ly, I would go through every
deployment, every heart ache,
and every night to be where I
am today.
The Navy is a part of who
we are now. In some twisted
way, it has made me who I am.
Who knows if I would have
the patients and laid back atti-
tude that I am known for. What
about my sense of humor!? I
really do thank the Navy for
that If I wouldn't have learned
to laugh at things, my head
would have exploded years
ago. And let's not forget all
the amazing friendships that I
have made along this road.
I have had the honor of
meeting some of the most
incredible women as a mil-
spouse. They have inspired me
in ways that I can't explain. It is
truly a family that you choose.
After going through deploy-
ment after deployment, I have
found a sense of strength that
I never knew existed. I can do
anything. I never feel intimi-
dated or weak. I may feel fool-
ish when it takes me 10 tries
to get something right, but I'll
get it. Maybe this is a question
we should all think about. You
might find strength in it like
I did, or maybe you will take
a different path in the future.
However it affects you, what-
ever your answer, I hope you
have gained something from
being a milspouse. So, would
you choose this life all over
again, ifyou knew in the begin-
ning, what you know now?

Crooked Rivers Cultural
Heritage Productions,
usually called Crooked
Rivers, is on the move again,
planning its fourth annual
performance, scheduled
for presentation Feb. 20, 21,
27 and 28 and March 6 and
7, 2009. There will be more
details about those shows in
later columns.
Now Crooked Rivers wants
to enlist its friends and neigh-
bors to share in the design of
their new production, Feeding
the Tides of Change. To do this,
Crooked Rivers invites com-
munity members of all ages
to learn more about the pro-
cess of creating an event like at
what they call "gatherings."
These gatherings for
Crooked Rivers, which has
been officially designated as
our county's local cultural
heritage production organiza-
tion, have been scheduled for
two upcoming Saturdays. The
first will be this weekend, Nov.
15, at Lisa Allen's DanceWorks
studio on Colerain Road
and the second on Dec. 6 at
Orange Hall in downtown St.
Marys, from 10 a.m. to noon
each day.
These gatherings are oppor-
tunities for interested cast
members, technicians, stage-
hands and volunteers to meet
each other and sign up to be a
part of the productions sched-
uled for February and March.

Fresh from their success last
Friday, when their produc-
tion of Little Women won the
Region 3 5A One Act Play com-
petition, Camden County High
School's Advanced Drama stu-
dents travel to Jonesboro this
weekend to compete against
the state's most talented actors
in the State One Act Play con-
test. While Camden County
has a proud history of com-
peting well on athletic fields,
the school's success extends
to the stage as well. This year's
victory is the program's sixth
consecutive region champion-
ship and its ninth such cham-
pionship in the past 14 years.
It is also worth noting that
senior Ashley Campbell won
the region competition's Best
Actress award for her portrayal
of Jo March in Little Women.


Mark your calendars for
Christmas in the Parkin St.
Marys on Saturday, Dec. 6.
Starting at noon, there will be
a host of kid- and family-cen-
tered activities, culminating
with a visit from Santa. The
jolly elf will give out Christmas
stockings stuffed with toys and
goodies for the first 1,500 chil-
dren.
Among the planned activi-
ties for the day are a ginger
bread house serving up cook-
ies and cocoa, fun crafts for
children, carnival-style games,
face painting, train rides for
tots, hayrides, and seasonal
musical entertainment. All
activities are presented at no
cost to attendees. The day will
culminate with a special show-
ing of The Polar Express on a
large outdoor movie screen in
the park starting at 5:30 p.m.
The Christmas in the Park
celebration, which began as
a tradition in the 1970s in St.
Marys, is now back in vogue
thanks to community volun-
teers and corporate sponsors
who work to raise funds and
provide the support for this
annual tradition. Visit www.

"I once heard an officer say
that sacrifice without remem-

A successful mix


Military, civilians work side-by-side at Trident Refit Facility


By MCSN Eric Tretter
Periscope Staff
To understand everything Naval
Submarine Base Kings Bay's Trident
Refit Facility does and all that it entails
to support the fleet can be overwhelming.
To tour every building, department, shop
and job that TRF encompasses, including
closed-door facilities and classified
information, is nearly impossible.
To call TRF's operation vast is one
thing. To understand it, entirely different.
As the largest tenant command here at
Kings Bay, approximately 360 military
personnel and 1,290 civilians make up
the TRF workforce. Like many shore
commands throughout the Navy, these
civilians and service members work with
sea-bound sailors to accomplish common
goals. "TRF quietly and efficiently
keeps a significant portion of America's
submarine warfare capability at sea," is
how the TRF fact sheet explains it.
"We feel what makes TRF successful
is the military-civilian mix," said Daphne
Cassani of TRF Public Affairs. "Active


duty members learn from those skilled
artisans and take that training back to
the ships. In turn, the military infuse
our civilian workforce with new ideas
and insights on how to best support
shipboard operations. This is a winning
and synergetic
combination that ... Whether

and repair of Trident submarines and
to provide global submarines supply

In building 4028, the Refit Industrial
Facility (RIF), apprentice Chris Hupman
of Machine Shop 38A, is carefully
milling v-blocks for round stocks. Just a
stone's throw from Hupman, machinist
Jeffrey Deberry inputs pages of codes

armature for a

"We have an
awesome civilian
workforce that is
skilled in using


state-of-the-art equipment," Cassani said.
Across the way, in the Command and
Control Systems Building, technicians
refurbish $25,000 binoculars and 40-foot
periscopes, among other things, to ready
for issue (RFI) condition. Three sets of
RFI binoculars, mounting hardware,
and several 12-inch incandescent search
lights perch near an outside door,
awaiting disbursement.


Most of these re-manufactured
components belong to large pool
of assets overhauled by the Trident
Planned Equipment Replacement
(TRIPER) program to support Ohio class
submarines.
"These ready components are
shipboard equipment requiring
maintenance beyond the ship's capability
and/or cannot be accomplished during
refill periods without impacting the
refill schedule," said Bonnie Taylor
of TRIPER/Configuration/Alteration
management.
Taylor compared and simplified these
planned and emergent change outs done
on submarines to that of an automobile's
blown engine.
"Basically, if you have major engine
trouble with your car, it is much faster
and easier to swap the entire engine than
to take it apart and fix it," she said. "It
takes a lot longer than just taking a ready-
to-go motor off the shelf and re-installing
it. It reduces that time significantly."

Refurbishing leads to big savings


Continued from Page 4
Early during the Ohio class
submarine's conception, a decision was
made as to which components would
be in the pool. The concept was to
reduce the amount of time to get these
components installed on the boat, without
having the downtime spent taking the
component out, repairing/overhauling it
and then re-installing it.
"We have thousands of components -
overhauled or repaired," Taylor said. "We
use the assets over and over again and

refurbished assets save Trid
taxpayers money. How
much money? According to the Optical
Repair Shop's Regional Maintenance
Coordinator Bud Leivasseur, a record
629 optical instruments and components
refurbished in the 2008 fiscal year saved
approximately $4 million more than costs
had those components been completely
replaced.
On a visit to TRF waterfront facilities,
MR2 Dusty Erno of machine shop 38A,
manufactures a taper pin for a pump
assembly. He explains this machine shop
as one that repairs/maintains small parts
as opposed to 31A which deals with
fabrication.
Outside, a gigantic crane on extra
wide, railroad-type tracks, lowers a
"racetrack" onto the USS Georgia. This
is used as a platform to work on the
boat's mast and antennas in the upper
part of the sail.
Not far from this operation, ND2
(DSW) Josh Peterson prepares 27-pound
diving head gear for a weekly training
exercise outside the Diving Locker.
"Pretty much anything deemed
necessary to change, we'll do to get the
vessels underway," said NDCM Scott
Brodeur. "Our main job is to support the
strategic operations of the boats. We fix
dry dock door leaks, inspect piers and
recover topside drops of items of value


underwater."
Looming near the divers' training
operation, a 133-foot tall, 700-foot long
dry dock holds the USS Maryland.
As the largest drydock in the Western
Hemisphere, "... submarines may

TRF Command
Master Chief Todd
Synder said the biggest
challenge at TRF is
communication.
"We have so many
facets and there are
a lot of people who
deal with each side of


the house. Understanding the language
[military versus civilian] can be a little
different," he said.
Differences aside, the two factions
seem to have the communication issues
under control. Recently, five TRF civilian
employees were honored with Meritous
Civilian Service Awards for planning and
executing TRF operations on the other
side of the world.
TRF employees made United States
Naval submarine history when the first
Voyage Repair Team traveled to Diego
Garcia. In the middle of the Indian
Ocean, on an island much smaller than
most state counties, the team successfully
created a shore base to accommodate
support equipment aboard SSGNs for
scheduled maintenance.
"Normally you have a tender that does
that, because it has all the mechanical
abilities," Snyder said. "In this case, we
have such a good working relationship
at Trident Refit Facility, whether you
are civilian or in the military, that we
put a team together to plan the refit over
there."
A second Voyage Repair Team visited
Diego Garcia last month to be followed
by others in the future. Just another
testament of TRF's many capabilities.

CNO notes Ethos success, releases Guidance


By MC2(SW) Rebekah
Blowers
Chief of Naval Operations Public
Affairs

The ChiefofNaval Operations
(CNO), Adm. Gary Roughead,
released his Guidance for 2009
on Nov. 5.
CNO's Guidance (CNOG)
reaffirms his vision, mission,
guiding principles and focus
areas refining the scope of
his intentions and how they
will be measured in 2009 and
reviews the accomplishments
of the Navy over the past year.
"Over the past year, we have
implemented our Maritime
Strategy around the world.
This year's Guidance will high-
light those accomplishments
as well as expand on the prog-
ress we need to continue to
make to remain a dominant
force," Roughead said.
CNO said that one of last
year's accomplishments was
developing a Navy Ethos, a
tangible statement of values
integral to the Navy's mission
accomplishment.


"It distinguishes those of us
who serve in the Navy, active
and reserve Sailors and Navy
civilians, regardless of unit,
command or community,"
Roughead said.
The CNOG reinstates CNO's
three focus areas of building
the future force, maintaining
warfighting readiness, and
developing and supporting
Sailors, Navy civilians, and
their families.
He said over the past year
the Navy has made significant
progress in those areas, set-
ting the stage for continued
achievements in 2009.
Some of those achievements
include: Deploying of the first
guided missile submarines,
USS Ohio (SSGN 726) and USS
Florida (SSGN 728), in less
than six years from the start of
their conversion from strategic
service; Embarking nongov-
ernmental organizations and
international partners aboard
Navy hospital and amphibious
ships to provide humanitar-
ian assistance to local pop-
ulations, treating more than

The 2009 Guidance explains
Roughead's 18 intentions,
refining the initiatives and
measures set forth in the 2007-
2008 Guidance.
The 18 intentions include
global maritime partnerships,

nology initiatives to ensure
warfighting benefits accrue
to future Sailors, and compe-
tent and dedicated Sailors and
Navy civilians, supported by
strong families, being the heart
of the Navy as the preeminent

There's help to get your credit debt under control


By MC1 (SW) Joe Sabo
Periscope Staff


With the economy struggling and banks not being as stable as
the past, Sailors and Marines have to be skeptical about loans
and creating debt.
The military offers job security that credit companies love,
making it easier to over expend yourself. With the high-technol-
ogy lifestyle that Americans live, people often spend more than
they have.
With new game systems, phones, computers, flat screen tele-
visions and other gadgets, everything has a price.
Creditcard.com statistics state the average consumer has a
total of 13 credit obligations on record at a credit bureau. These
include credit cards, such as department store charge cards,
gas cards and bank cards, and installment loans, including auto
loans, mortgage loans and student loans. The average American
with a credit file is responsible for $16,635 in debt. This is
excluding mortgages.
Personal debt is composed of home loans, credit cards, educa-
tional expenses, and the burdens of these if not monitored can
be serious. The average credit card-indebted young adult house-
hold spends nearly 24 percent of its income on debt payments.
Reducing your personal debt will often make life easier and
give you the ability to accumulate your personal savings. When
applying for a loan for a home or a business, reducing your
personal debt is essential in qualifying for a loan. Lenders look
at debt to income ratio for loans. And if the ratio is too close


chances are the loan will be denied.
Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Fleet and Family Support
Center offers budget counseling for military families free of
charge. Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Fleet and Family
Service Center Financial Counselor Bill Snook thinks there are
things everyone can do to help eliminate debt or keep it man-
ageable.
"Sailors and Marines have had a bigger challenge fighting
debt over the past year due to the economy struggling and gas
prices higher than in previous times;'," Snook said. "People who
were already living pay day to pay day were having to use there
credit card for daily living expenses. FFSC always has classes and
workshops the military can use to learn how to get help. Military
One Source also offers financial counseling by phone. A good
tip is to create a budget so you know where the money is going.
It makes it easier to cut back on things that may add up without
being realized."
Every command should have a command financial specialist
who can help sailors create a budget, go over creative money
management habits and direct Sailors and Marines to institu-
tions that can help them reduce their debt. Most command
financial specialists use the Power Payment Plan Program. This
Program creates a line-by-line budget with an estimated debt-
free time frame and, based on the person, shows different meth-
ods and ideas for meeting that time frame.
The Navy also has teamed up with Navy Federal Credit Union
to create a debt management program. The debt management


program is strictly voluntary for its members. It requires mem-
bers to cut up all credit cards and cancel them. Second, they
pile all non-collateral debt into one total and the member pays
NFCU a monthly payment to pay off that amount.
What NFCU calls and ask the creditors to lower or remove the
interest rates on the debts. As the member pays NFCU, they pay
of the debt over a period of time.
"There are many ways to become debt free," said Monica
Sinclair, NFCU's South East Region personal financial specialist.
"The Navy Federal Credit Union has a great program to help our
members. With our program, members become well rounded in
debt management strategies, learn how credit works and how to
control their spending."
Being indebted to the eyeballs can add stress to the home and
effect work performance. It can make you feel like the world is
on your shoulders. And, it can make you lose your security clear-
ance or get you sent to court or put in prison. But you are not
alone there is help out there.

World War II submarine veteran William G. Morris searches for a seat at the Naval Submarine

and dropped hedgehogs, and
she wouldn't go down."
Eventually, 5-inch shells
from a destroyer did the deed,
though Rash seems to take
great pride in the Barbero's
stubbornness.
"She was a great boat," he
said with a smile. "We had a
great skipper and a great crew.
We made two war patrols and
had to be towed back because
we took two aerial bombs real
close aboard aft and goofed up
our reduction gear. We came
back on one screw. Those skip-
pers during World War II really
took care of their crew."
The three men met by
chance over the course of
the week, and all have fond if
varied memories of their USS
Barbero experiences.
Pete Sococo said he wait-
ed until 1965 to get married


because of the 31 years of Navy
service.
A native of Guam, Sococo
spent the better part of World
War II on a record 16 patrols,
the only submariner to do so
many during the war.
"The funny thing about
being on board a subma-
rine, when you got on board
the first thing they try to do
is qualify you because, hey,
when something happens to
a sub and they're out in the
ocean you can't call the Coast
Guard," he said. "You're going
to have to do the best you can
for your life, your crew and
your boat, too.'
Sococo spent nine months
after the war teaching the
Turkish Navy how to run four
former U.S. Navy submarines.
From his Navy experience
Sococo said, "I'm 87 years old,
and every time I see all these
young kids I say, go for it man

and study hard
boy because it's a lot different
type of ball game!"
Of his many years of Naval
service, coupled with meeting


and greeting a variety ship-
mates from different years,
Sococo said, "I've got a couple
of those shipmates that are
down here now, and I never
forget, they say, 'damn that
Pete Sococo is still looking the
same!"
He said hard work is the key
to maintaining a young dispo-
sition.
World War II submarine
veteran, Albert Cabana stood
topside of the USS Tennessee
(SSBN-734) as YN3 William
Kennedy served as tour guide.
The last time Cabana set
foot aboard a boat was under
unusual circumstances,
approximately 40 years ago,
aboard his World War II boat,
the USS Sea Cat (SS/AGSS-
399).
"We were out fishing off St.
Pete Beach (St. Petersburg,
Fla.) and my buddy I was fish-
ing with said, 'take a look over


there, I think I see a periscope,'
and I said, 'oh that's impos-
sible.' So I looked over and
sure enough, there was a sub-
marine surfacing and out of
the side there was a huge 399
which was the number that
commissioned my Sea Cat,"
Cabana said. The command-
ing officer then offered Cabana
a tour upon reaching port.
"I think it's a 180 degrees
difference," Cabana said when
asked about changes between
the Tennessee and his Sea Ca.

"The Sea Cat for me was a
complicated thing to qualify
on, but I can't imagine how
the boys on this boat would
ever get qualified with all the
equipment and the amount
of wiring and the different
departments they have on the
sub. It's absolutely incredible."
Cabana had the pleasure to
be aboard the Sea Cat as she
pulled into Tokyo Bay for the
signing of the Japanese sur-
render, Sept. 2, 1945, officially
ending World War II.

Master


Chief


of Navy


to retire

By SCMCS(SW/AW) Bill
Houlihan
Master Chief Petty Officer of the
Navy Public Affairs

Master Chief Petty Officer of
the Navy (MCPON)(SW/FMF)
Joe R. Campa Jr., the 11th
Sailor to serve in that capacity,
has announced his plans to
retire from active duty at the
end of his enlisted active obli-
gated service (EAOS), April 1,
2009.
His last day in office will be
Dec. 13.
Campa, who assumed the
duties July 10, 2006, said he
feels an immense sense of
pride at the opportunities
he's been provided to lead the
Navy's enlisted force.
"This generation of Sailors
is unlike any other. Our men
and women serve a war-time
Navy, and I have a deep sense
of pride in each one of them,"
said Campa. "Their values,
their effort and their contri-
bution to the defense of our
nation continue to humble
me. Leading them has been
the greatest privilege of my
career."
Within three months of tak-
ing office, Campa had released
a document that would set the
tone and course for his tenure
as MCPON.
The "Mission, Vision

and Guiding Principles for
Chief Petty Officers" has
been ingrained in the fleet,
described by many as a return
to deckplate leadership.
Campa systematically
emphasized the Guiding
Principles as he had them
inserted into chief, senior chief
and master chief selection
board precepts, the Command
Master Chief Instruction and,
finally, the new evaluation
(CHIEFEVAL) for the Navy's
senior enlisted force.


"The CHIEFEVAL was
always the end state I'd hope
we'd reach. But we had to be
deliberate," said Campa. "I'm
very satisfied that the Guiding
Principles will endure because
our chiefs and commanding
officers can now see them
as expectations in black and
white."
Campa served two chiefs
of naval operations, current
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs
Adm. Mike Mullen and CNO
Adm. Gary Roughead.


Roughead, in a message
to Navy leadership, said that
Campa's legacy will be felt for
years to come and that the
Navy owes him a debt of grati-
tude for what he has accom-
plished on behalf of Sailors
around the world.
"Early in his tour, it was
very clear that his intent was
to reset the chief's mess and
return its members to the role
of deckplate leaders. Watching
that happen aboard our ships
and shore stations has made


our Navy stronger and inspired
our Sailors;'," Roughead said.
"MCPON Campa's energy
and passionate commitment
to our Sailors and their fami-
lies is infectious, and it has
swept across our entire Navy.
He is a Sailor's MCPON, a
MCPON who changed the
Navy based on his love of
leading Sailors."'

Navy Band honors Veterans


Day with students, seniors
RB MC2 Chr" -l-t l MA


Clayton
Fleet Public Affairs Center Det.
Northwest

Navy Band Northwest per-
formed at a Veterans Day
assembly at Woodlands
Elementary School in
Bremerton, Washington, Nov.
5.
The students, as well as
guests from neighboring com-
munities, had the opportunity
to listen to the band's music,
while learning about the
meaning of Veterans Day.
"This is our more compli-
cated assemblies because we
bring in guests from other plac-
es, such as Cypress Gardens
(senior citizens center), we
have a slide show presenta-
tion, and we have the Navy
band performing, so it takes
a lot of coordination;' said Jeff
McCormick, school principal.
"Just about every year we
have the band here. We sched-
ule our assembly around the
band's availability. Sometimes
we've had larger bands; some
of them have been smaller; it
all depends on who is avail-
able."


According to McCormick,
an assembly such as this gives
the children a chance to meet
members of the military, while
understanding how important
their roles are as Americans.
"This is always one of our
most important assemblies,"'
said McCormick. "Especially
in light of our national elec-
tion this week, it's especially
important that we honor our
democracy and the sacrifices
people have made.
"We try to teach our children
the importance of voting and
participating in our democra-
cy and recognizing that it takes
a huge amount of sacrifice by
millions of Americans to have
the privileges we have in this
country, so we really try to
impress on children that this
is a very important thing for
our country. Sometimes it's
very difficult for children to
understand that."
The audience was enter-
tained by the band's musical
talents, including music from
the brass choir and clarinet
quartet. Music selections were
patriotic in nature, including
marching songs from all five


branches of service, as well as
a holiday selection.
"Their music is always
excellent," said McCormick. "I
like the Christmas piece they
played. The kids were very
excited about that."
For some musicians, this
gives them an opportunity to
teach children what the mili-
tary has to offer, while teach-
ing them that everyone in the
military has an important role
in defending their country.
"The image they get of the
military is from media, TV,
newspapers, and a lot of the
kids don't know that there are
also musicians that are a part
of the military," said Musician
1st Class David Natseway,
trombone player.
"It gives them a chance
to see the diversity and how
many different jobs that there
are within the military. I like
doing things like this. It gives
us a chance to inform the kids
about Veterans Day. For some
of these kids, they don't see
the military all the time.

Secretary of Defense visits for first time


By MC1 Leah Stiles
Fleet Public Affairs Center
Detachment Southeast


The Secretary of Defense,
Honorable Robert Gates paid
a visit to USS Rhode Island
(SSBN 740), a ballistic missile
submarine home ported at
Naval Submarine Base Kings
Bay on Oct 31.
This tour markED his first
visit to a SSBN since becoming
Secretary of Defense.
"I gave a speech on the
importance of our nuclear
deterrent earlier this week and
in that same context, sort of
highlighting that importance
of that nuclear deterrent, sym-
bolically I wanted to come
here and visit this submarine,"
said Gates.
Gates spent more than 90
minutes on board the Rhode
Island shaking hands with
many of the 150 member crew.
"I got the chance to thank
them for their professionalism,
for their stewardship and tak-
ing care of our nuclear deter-
rent. And then also thanked
them for their service and asked
them to thank their families for
their support," Gates said.
He also got the chance
to stand beside the Rhode
Island's Commanding Officer,
Cmdr. Mark Marty, as he
pinned Storekeeper 2nd Class
Brian Boyd with the sub-sur-
face warfare qualification or
"dolphins."
The pin indicates comple-
tion of a rigorous qualification
program that requires detailed
working knowledge of subma-
rine systems and equipment
including damage control,
weapons, navigation, com-
munications, mechanical and
electrical systems and subma-
rine operations.
Secretary Gates congratu-
lated the 23-year-old Sailor in
the ship's mess hall.


Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates made a visit to the USS Rhode Island (SSBN 740) at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay. This
missile submarine since becoming Secretary of Defense.


"It was a really big surprise,"'
said Boyd, of Dayton, Ohio.
"He's the highest-ranking offi-
cial I have ever honestly shak-
en hands with."'
USS Rhode Island is an Ohio
class (Trident) submarine.
The Trident submarine is the
second largest, but most pow-
erful submarine ever built. At
560 feet in length and 18,750


tons, they are the nation's first
line of defense. The Trident II
D-5 missile, powered by solid
propellant, is ready to launch
within minutes of receiving a
command from the President
of the United States. The
Trident submarine provides
the United States with a pow-
erful deterrent to those who
wish us harm.


Deterrence of war has been
the primary mission and
fundamental reason for the
existence of the fleet ballis-
tic missile submarine since
its inception in 1960. With
almost unlimited cruising
range and endurance, subma-
rines are capable of extended
submerged operations in the
international waters of the


world. They remain hidden
by the ocean, and their loca-
tions unknown to any poten-
tial enemy.
"I think the fact that they
really can't be found ensures,
just as it did during the Cold
War, that anyone that wishes
us ill has to know that these
submarines are out there and
can always protect our coun-


Photo by MC1 Leah Stiles
marks his first visit to a ballistic


try," Gates said.
Their improved mobility,
quietness, and speed make
them the most survivable of
our nation's strategic system.
"It helps to deter our poten-
tial adversaries, and makes
everyone know that if you try to
launch an attack on the United
States there will be a heavy
price to pay," Gates said.

Crane simulator on line at Trident Training Facility


By MC1 (SW) Joe Sabo
Periscope Staff


Streamlining its training practices and finding methods to
efficiently train people without damage to equipment is a gov-
ernment priority.
Trident Refit Facility had the grand opening of its crane
simulator at Trident Training Facility Friday. The ribbon-cutting
ceremony featured a demonstration of the simulator and the
Commanding officers of TRF and TTF each got to try it out.
"Crane operators were never trained formally," said Leroy
Banks, mobile crane supervisor. "They were grandfathered by
on-the-job training. The simulator gives the hands on training
with worrying about damage or breaking things. And, it makes
it easier to concentrating on learning without the stress of dam-
aging equipment while working on an actual load. Now all the
training is recordable, which is good because there is a standard
of steps and habits that we can control."
There are only three crane simulators in the Navy, and Kings
Bay is the first lab to have two simulators. Portsmouth, N.H., was

the first to have a simulator.
The Crane Inspection Certification Bureau created the simu-
lator to fit the needs of the crane operators at Kings Bay.
"We can cut down on crane mishaps and use better opera-
tional risk management," Banks said. "TRF is in the process of
training a lot of crane operator apprentices, and this tool is going
to pay for itself real fast. Also, already qualified operators need to
re-qualify every two years."
The Navy facilities Web site states that in 2007, there were 164
accidents Navywide by cranes, which was down from 185 the
year prior. Most accidents are due to operator error, according
to reports. Only 41 of the 164 accidents were serious. But, every
little scuff is documented for record purposes.
Roitresha Watkins of Trident Refit Facility, one of two female
crane operator apprentices, is happy with the program.
"The apprenticeship is a great opportunity to learn and
receive benefits while you learn;'," Watkins said. "They send you
to courses at Coastal Community College, and the simulator is
awesome. It helps alleviate the all the bad habits before you even
start."

All training courses and simulators comply with Operational
Safety and Health Administration standards.
"Today we unveil the beginning of a new era in crane opera-
tions;'" said Trident Refit Facility Commanding Officer Capt.
John Stewart. "The newest training tool is a great edition and will
pay for itself in months. It is not a toy. It is a tool teach and train
and get the skills to do the job in a safe environment."
Kerrie Maslin of Trident Refit Facility, a third-year crane
operator apprentice, is on track to be the first female crane
operator at TRF. Maslin is a 2005 Camden County High School
graduate.
There are three different cranes, the Bridge, Portal and Mobile
cranes, to qualify. Each has different requirements.
I am glad they have the simulator because, when operating
a crane for the first time you get nervous and it makes it easier
to get the controls and learn the crane without the nervousness,'
Maslin said.

12 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday. November 13. 2008


Got a cold



or the flu?



Antibiotics



are not the



answer
From TRICARE
Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin,
the first antibiotic, in 1927. Since then,
antibiotics have changed medical care
by reducing illness and death from infections.
Antibiotics fight infections caused by bacte-
ria, however, they are not effective combating
viruses.
TRICARE urges beneficiaries to "just say no"
to antibiotics for treating colds and the flu. Ac-
cording to the Center for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), there is a sense among the
public that antibiotics are a "cure all."'
Many beneficiaries expect an antibiotic pre-
scription when they see their primary care
manager (PCM) for colds, the flu, most coughs,
sore throats and some earaches.
"Instead of automatically asking for antibiot-
ics, TRICARE encourages all beneficiaries to
listen to their PCM about the best treatment
options," said Maj. Gen. Elder Granger, deputy
director, TRICARE Management Activity.
The CDC recommends that children and
adults increase fluid intake, use a cool-mist
humidifier or saline solutions to relieve conges-
tion, and get plenty of rest.
Children who are unable to blow their nose
may benefit from saline nasal drops and a
bulb syringe to help keep their nasal passages
clear. Over-the-counter medications may help


adults.
Prevention is better than cure,


so following


Graduating recruits learn more about Navy Ethos


these steps can help avoid catching a cold or
the flu.
Get the flu shot or nasal mist flu vaccine to
reduce risk of contracting the flu virus. Either is
appropriate for children and adults.
Wash hands often because colds and the flu
are spread by direct contact.
Drink plenty of water.
Cough or sneeze into a tissue instead of the
hands.
Keep your hands away from your face.
Cold/flu viruses can enter the body through the
eyes, nose and mouth.
"Beneficiaries should keep their PCM
informed if their illness gets worse or lasts a
long time because viral infections such as the
flu or cold can sometimes lead to bacterial
infections";' said Granger.
If a bacterial infection is present and a PCM
decides that antibiotics would be beneficial,
the CDC suggests the following:
Take an antibiotic exactly as prescribed and
do not skip doses, even when feeling better.
* Stopping the medicine too early may allow
some bacteria to linger, increasing the possibil-
ity of getting sick again.
Throw away any unused medication after
finishing the recommended treatment. It is not
safe to keep antibiotics for future illnesses.
Do not take antibiotics prescribed for some-
one else, as they are specific to that person's
illness. Taking the wrong medication may delay
proper treatment and allow bacteria to multi-
ply.

stay healthy during the cold and flu season,

By Chief Mass
Communication Specialist
Rhonda Burke
Navy Region Midwest Public Affairs
Graduating recruits at
the Navy's only boot
camp learned more
about their roles, their Navy
and the newly released Navy
Ethos from the service's high-
est ranking officer during their
graduation Nov. 7.
"You are a United States
Sailor. It is a privilege enjoyed
by only a fortunate few in our
nation's history, and it is a
privilege with a storied past
and distinguished history,"
Roughead told the Navy's new-
est 970 Sailors at their recruit
graduation.
This was Roughhead's first
trip to Great Lakes as the Chief
of Naval Operations. The visit
comes in the second year of his
term, and in the week in which
he has just released the Navy
Ethos and CNO Guidance.
"This is where it starts, this
is a great place to talk about
the Ethos for the first time
because the Ethos captures
who we are," Roughead said.
"The Navy Ethos compliments
our creed because it is not a
statement of what we live by,


ww .Goriah Str 0.a *com


but it is a statement of who we
are."
Roughead's message to the
new Sailors is that they are
part of the greatest Navy in
the world today, the greatest
Navy that has ever sailed on
the world's oceans.
"These Sailors have tremen-
dous opportunities ahead of
them. They are part of some-
thing that is bigger than them-
selves and they, individu-
ally, can make a difference
in the world that we live in,"
Roughead said.
"Sailors have been doing
that for generations, and I
am ever more optimistic with
the young men and women
today and what they can do in
their lifetime. I am inspired by
them.'
The Navy's senior officer also
lauded the Sailors whose daily
jobs, at Naval Station Great
Lakes, it is to train Sailors both


at recruit training command
and in their technical training
schools.
"My message to those who
provide leadership and men-
toring and who shape these
young people who arrive here
and leave as United States Navy
Sailors is first and foremost,
my appreciation for what they
do," Roughead said.
"It is demanding work, and
they give themselves com-
pletely to the mission.
Roughead's other message
to the training staff is that they
are doing something that so
few people have the oppor-
tunity to do, they are shaping
and molding young Sailors in
an incredible career.
"There is no more important
job that anyone can do than
shape our future," Roughead
said. "Without people the Navy
is nothing."

New handbook consolidates

warrior care information


By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service
United States Defense
Secretary Robert Gates
said Nov. 3 that a new
handbook improves the care
and support of wounded, ill
and injured (WII) troops and
their families by compiling the
myriad information they seek
into one succinct, easy-to-read
publication.
In his foreword to the
"Compensation & Benefits
Handbook for seriously ill and
injured members of the Armed
Forces" Gates said the biggest
benefit is that it compiles into
one source the relevant infor-
mation that service members
and their families previously
had to search through numer-
ous sources to find.
"This handbook helps ser-
vice members and the family
members helping to care for
them navigate the military
and veteran disability, com-
pensation and benefits pro-
grams designed to help them,"'
explained Sharon Gunselman,
a defense department policy
and resource analyst. "It walks
readers through the processes
of recovery, rehabilitation and
reintegration back to the mili-
tary or into civilian life. Each
section describes the compen-
sation and benefits available
at each stage."
The Dole-Shalala
Commission, led by former
Sen. Bob Dole and Donna
Shalala, health and human
services secretary during the
Clinton administration, iden-
tified the need for a compre-
hensive information source
during its investigation last


year of problems at Walter
Reed Army Medical Center.
The departments ofVeterans
Affairs, Labor, Education,
Health and Human Services
and the Social Security
Administration contributed
to the handbook. Mandated
by the 2008 National Defense
Authorization Act, the
Compensation and Benefits
Handbook is now available
online and is also being dis-
tributed by the services in
hard-copy format.
"It provides Web sites and
toll-free phone numbers, and
the electronic version includes
hyperlinks," Gunseleman said.
"It will be updated annually to
include new information:'
Gates emphasized that the
handbook is not intended to
be a replacement for what
he called "the best source of
information" the service
member's chain of command
or medical and non-medi-
cal care providers. He noted
that because affected service
members will have different
requirements, their support
staffs will help design individ-
ual plans that ensure they and
their families receive the sup-
port and benefits they need.
"You and your fellow patri-
ots who volunteered to serve
in our armed forces have no
equal in the world," Gates
concluded. "Our responsibil-
ity is to provide you care that
is unequalled in the world. We
owe this to you. We will deliver
this to you."

Benefits Handbook may be

Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Joe R. Campa Jr. speaks to U.S. Army Spec.
Joseph Serino after meeting with chief petty officers during a chief petty officer call at Naval
Medical Center San Diego. Serino, a native of Palmdale, Calif., was injured by an improvised
explosive device in southern Baghdad on June 16, 2007.

Pentagon declares November

as 'Warrior Care Month'


From LIFELines Services Network
Secretary of the Navy Donald Winter joined
with the Secretary of Defense Robert
Gates in declaring November "Warrior
Care Month."
During his declaration, Gates said there
should be no public confusion that warrior
care is less than should be expected. He said
U.S. military medical treatment for wounded
warriors has always been world class.
In regard to media reports of less-than-ade-
quate medical facilities, Gates said our military
has made significant strides in the past 18
months.
DoD is also making improvements to the
disability evaluation system that determines
how much money injured service members
receive after they're discharged from the mili-
tary. Meanwhile, officials at the Department of
Veterans Affairs officials are working with all
the services to streamline the transfer process.
DoD has reported that treatment service
members get in the field and through the tran-
sition process to military healthcare facilities is
the best available. Advances in transportation,
medical procedures, personnel training and
medical technology has made the American
military medical system without peer in the
world.
Gates also cited the services' creation of
wounded warrior transition organizations.


In highlighting procedural advancements,
Gates said, "We have a pilot [disability rat-
ing] program, that we are watching closely. In
that program, there is just one exam and one
rating between the military and the Veterans
Administration. We're hopeful that it will be
implemented for the benefit of wounded,
injured and sick service members."
Gates acknowledged there is more to be
achieved in caring for wounded warriors.
"Part of the challenge is that we make deci-
sions and budget money here, but it takes awhile
to trickle down to individual posts and bases
and to the individuals involved;'," Gates said.
"So, while we've accomplished a lot and e are
headed absolutely in the right direction, there's
no question that we still have further to go," he
said.
"About $900 million in resources have been
earmarked for treatment and research of ser-
vice members suffering from post-traumatic
stress disorder and traumatic brain injury,"
Gates said.
The DoD will also establish a Center for
Excellence at the National Naval Medical
Center at Bethesda, Md., that will specialize
in research and development in finding new
treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder
(PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Being a military spouse is a
unique experience filled with
many joys and heartaches that
many people will never know

you have as a military spouse
