New fishing



pier opened


www.kingsbayperiscope.com


THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2008


MCSN Eric Tretter
Periscope Staff


Naval Submarine Base Kings
Bay's Lake D has a new pier
that provides both a fishing
platform as well as screened-
in gazebo for rest and relax-
ation.
Funds were appropriated
largely in part by Kings Bay's
2007 Installation Excellence
Award. The honor was
bestowed to the base over
other Naval installations
worldwide, and a variety of
requirement were factored in.
Through award money, cou-
pled with Morale, Welfare and
Recreation dollars, the dock
was built.
"We wanted something
that would have a long-
term impact on the quality
of life;'," said Morale, Welfare
and Recreation Director Bob


Spinnenweber. "We thought
that this would be something
that would really get a lot of
use."
The 75-foot pier took
approximately one month to
complete. It stands within a
short walk from the Recreation
Vehicle Park, very near to the
smaller, less permanent, float-
ing boat dock.
The idea for the new dock
came from small focus groups
of people throughout the com-
mand.
"We also looked at our
long term plan for the lake,"
Spinnenweber said. "We have
an RV park and knew that the
RVers who come here in the
winter time and support the
quality of life would use this,
but it's also for the local active
duty community to be able to
come out here on the weekend
and do the same."'

The new fishing pier at Lake D was funded through money received for Kings Bay's 2007 Installation Excellence Award.


Click It or Ticket out to save lives over holidays


By MC1 (SW) Joe Sabo
Periscope Staff
A campaign to crack down on
unbuckled drivers is under way.
The Click It or Ticket campaign is
statewide, started Monday, Nov. 17
and ends Sunday, Nov. 30.
With the holiday season right
around the corner, predictions show
that motor vehicle fatalities dur-
ing this time of year are higher. The
governor's Office of Highway Safety
safety belt enforcement campaign
contains high-visibility road checks
and concentrated patrols for officers


from one of the state to the other.
"Seatbelts and child safety seats
is something Kings Bay Security
Department takes seriously," said Lt.
Sandra Southall Simon. "Here on the
Naval Base we are going increase our
patrols and actively look for seatbelt
violations. It is a proven fact if you are
wearing your seat belts correctly, you
have a better chance of coming out of
a crash alive than if you don't have a
seat belt.":'
Last year, a law was passed that
sends violators on the base straight to
military court. If they are found guilty
of not wearing a safety belt, they


must attend the four-hour defen-
sive driving course that is offered
on base for free. If a person gets
a second violation, that person and
their command representative must
meet with NSB Kings Bay Security
Department Court Liaison Officer
Michael Turckes. Military members
and base employees are allowed 12
points a year against them before
they lose there driving privileges.
According to the National Highway
Administration Click it or Ticket is
the most successful seat belt enforce-
ment campaign ever with the nation-
al seatbelt rate at 82 percent. The


message is blunt and to the point, put
your seat belt on or get a ticket and
have your wallet feel the pain.
The city of Saint Mary's and
Kingsland also will be making a
concerted effort to look for seatbelt
violations during the Thanksgiving
holiday as well, by increasing officer
coverage throughout the county.
Statistics from the Governors
Office of Highway Safety show that
in more than half of traffic fatali-
ties during the 2007 Thanksgiving
holiday weekend, victims were not
wearing their seatbelts. Twenty-six
unbuckled motorists lost their lives


in fatal crashes over the Thanksgiving
weekend alone.
When it comes to safety belts it
is the drivers responsibility to make
sure that all passengers over the age
of 5 are buckled up. Children must
be properly restrained in a federally
approved child safety seat.
"It is just so clear that safety belts
save lives," said Governors Office of
Highway Safety Director Bob Dallas.
"And yet day or night, Georgia or
nationwide, unbuckled drivers and
their passengers continue to pay the
price with their lives. That is why we
always need to buckle up."


CNO delivers



safety message


By MC2 (SW) Rebekah
Blowers
Chief of Naval Operations
Public Affairs
The Chief of Naval
Operations (CNO) released
a holiday safety message to
Sailors and their families Nov.
19.
Adm. Gary Roughead, CNO,
reminds Sailors that opera-
tional risk management, on
and off duty, is essential to
preventing mishaps at home
or while travelling during the
holidays.
"Over the holidays and
throughout the year, use com-
mon sense and simple risk
management. Get enough
rest, and give yourself ade-
quate driving time if travel-


ling. Knowyour limits, and use
good judgment when celebrat-
ing," CNO said.
While Sailors are with their
families and loved ones cel-
ebrating at home, they are
reminded to keep in mind
those shipmates who are serv-
ing forward. It is because of
these hard working men and
women that those at home can
enjoy the holiday season.
"We have many things for
which to be thankful and many
reasons to celebrate. Doing so
safely is the best gift I can think
of," Roughead said.

Here are some reasons to

You will weigh less. One pint
less when you leave than when
you came in.
It's easy and convenient. It
only takes about an hour.
It's something you can
spare. Most people have blood
to spare ... yet, there is still not
enough to go around.
You will walk a little taller
afterwards. You will feel good

You will be helping to ensure
that blood is there when you
or someone close to you may
need it. Most people don't
think they'll ever need blood,
but many do.
You will be someone's hero.
You may give a newborn, a

help save up to three lives with
just one donation.
It's the right thing to do.

2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, November 27, 2008


LOCAL NEWS a VIEWS


Briefly Speaking

Suggestions for improving the Periscope?
Do you see an event on base you think deserves coverage in
the Periscope? Let us know by calling editor Bill Wesselhoff at
573-4719 or e-mail periscopekb@comcast.net.

Naval Branch Health Clinic upgrade to begin
In order to enhance the delivery of care available at Naval
Branch Health Clinic, Kings Bay, X-ray equipment is being
upgraded and will soon be 100-percent digital. To meet that
requirement, space and equipment upgrades began Nov. 24. and
will last until approximately Dec. 15. During that time, the Naval
Branch Health Clinic Kings Bay will not have the capability to
perform any X-ray services. The necessary provisions have been
made with the network to ensure that all of beneficiaries have
access to necessary X-ray services. NBHC Kings Bay staff appre-
ciates your understanding during this period and anticipates
complete X-ray services will resuming Dec. 15. For questions or
concerns, contact the clinic at (912) 573-4204.

Commissary Thanksgiving shopping hours
Following are the hours for the Kings Bay Commissary: Closed,
Thanksgiving day, Thursday, Nov. 27; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday,
Nov. 28; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 29; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday, Nov. 30.

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 administrations, CPCs, the service
member and his/her command is ultimately responsible for
providing the required documentation to PSD in a timely man-
ner. 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 documentation. 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 infor-
mation to your Sailors to ensure they understand the importance
of turning 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 operational planning,
personnel accounting, and mission success. 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 pho-
tograph 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 sys-
tem in their current grade must submit a photograph. The pre-
ferred uniform will be service khaki without a cover. When ser-
vice 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 photographs. It is recom-
mended 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 unavailable, officer may submit any color photograph that
complies with the requirements outlined in MILPERSMAN
1070-180.

PSD hours expanded to Saturdays
PSD Kings Bay's ID card section announces expanded service
hours. The ID card section will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Saturdays. Personnel are encouraged to utilize the new ID card
appointment scheduling Web site. Appointments are available

Look at Thanksgiving as 'glass half full'


By Beth Wilson
Periscope Contributor

A re you a "glass half
empty person or a
"glass half full" person?
My friend Tanya says, "I'm a
glass-half-empty person who
keeps her eye on the pitcher."
Have you faced challenges
this year? High gas prices, food
costs, deployments and other
challenges affected many this
year. I have family members
who lost jobs due to economic
downturns. I know others who
lost their homes. It has been a
tough year. It is understand-
able to be a glass-half-empty
person in these times.
The Pilgrims endured a
year of incredible hardship
and loss. Those who survived
could have taken on a grim
view of their future. Instead
they persevered, developed
valuable relationships among
their own group and their

Periscope Contributor


neighbors. They pressed on to
build a life in a land that would
become our great nation.
It is interesting to me that
the founders of Thanksgiving,
Pilgrims and NativeAmericans,
celebrated with a feast. A glass-
half-empty person would not
celebrate with a large feast.
No, a glass-half-empty person
would protect the stores of
abundance to insure the sup-
plies would last through the


winter. But the Pilgrims and
Native Americans celebrated
with a huge feast and thankful
hearts. I think they must have
determined to be glass-half-
full people.
As we celebrate Thanks-
giving this week, I am deter-
mined, in the midst of eco-
nomic uncertainty and other
challenges, to emulate the first
celebrants of Thanksgiving -
to be a glass-half-full observer
of Thanksgiving.
I know there are many, very
real challenges we face. But
look at all we have. As military
families we have job security.
We live in a country where
the transfer of governance is a
peaceful transition.
When I pause to take inven-
tory of all the blessings I have
- well, this column cannot
contain the list. Thanksgiving
changes my attitude. It is so
easy to focus on challenges
and not our blessings. In the
news industry there is a saying,


"If it bleeds, it leads'; meaning
the "bad news" story gets the
first prominence. Sometimes
we do that in our lives.
That is why Thanksgiving
Day is so important. We can
take for granted all that we
have, focusing on those few
things that are not what we
want; glass-half-empty. This
day gives us a chance to focus
on the "full part" of that glass
... all we have!
We remain a blessed and
fortunate nation.
As the Pilgrims and Native
Americans celebrated the
end of summer with hope
for the future, I wish you a
Thanksgiving celebration full
of family, feasting and a glass-
half-full future. Have a safe
and happy Thanksgiving!

How to fix our family readiness groups


By Marie Hobson
Periscope Contributor
F RG stands for the Family
Readiness Group, and
has also been known
as the Family Support Group,
Wives Support Group, Spouses
Support Group and, of course,
the Wives Group or Wives Club.
The purpose of this group is to
establish a safe and familiar
setting to which spouses of a
command may come together
to find support, friends, and
camaraderie.
They plan family events,
hold fundraisers and help
keep the morale up for both
the service members deployed
and the families left behind.
Sounds wonderful, doesn't it?
So, why all the trash talk? If I
had a penny for every time I
heard, "I don't want my wife
to be part of it,',' or from the
wife, "You couldn't drag me in
there!" I'd be on my own pri-
vate island with a cabana boy
bringing me drinks that have
umbrellas. I think I'm going to
start asking for the pennies.
The problem is that there
is a problem. Before I get into
the problem, I want to be very
clear that there are still some
amazing support groups out
there, and I have been lucky
enough to have been apart of
a few myself. I also have expe-
rienced some that were an
embarrassment. So, let's talk
about why there are so many
bad ones giving the good ones
a poor reputation.
No one wants to take the
blame. Commands point the
finger at the wives saying
that they have to oversee the
group to make sure things go
well or they feel as if there is
too much "drama" and keep
there support to a bare mini-
mum. Wives point the finger
at commands saying that they
don't have an actually sup-
port group because it is being
run by the command or vice


Marie Hobson
Periscope Contributor


versa, the command doesn't
support having a group at all.
Who's right? Well, both in my
opinion. I've been doing this
long enough to have "gotten
the T-shirt." And, I see both
sides' arguments clearly. The
commands don't want to be
caught of guard by any act
and or event that would make
them look bad. Then, there is
money added to the mix and
that makes many people ner-
vous. They worry about the
command name being used
inappropriately, mistakes
made, etc. They also have big-
ger and better things to do
then play referee when things
go wrong.
On the wives side, they feel
like they are not properly sup-
ported and that the commands
negative feelings toward them
discourages women from
participating. FRG's can also
feel as if it isn't their group
at all. There are supposed to
be chair positions and votes
made without the CO's, XO's,
COB's wife or Ombudsman
voting. Decisions are sup-
pose to be made within the
group and a monthly report
should be given to the CO to
be overlooked. If there are any
concerns, they are to be taken
up with the chair positions.
It shows communication and
respect on both ends. When
this doesn't happen and wives
see a "Senior SM's Wife" at


the meeting telling them "yes"
and "no" to things, it breaks
the spirit and purpose of the
group. There isn't supposed
to be rank in a wives group.
And even though the intention
is sometimes meant well, it
can be disheartening to those
elected to a position.
We come together aswomen.
Our husbands are deployed
together for the same length of
time, and we miss them equal-
ly. Actually, I truly believe that
the young, new wife of the
most junior guy onboard that
just reported probably misses
her husband "the most"'
Women involved in these
groups need to remember
that they may be the very first
impression of the Navy to this
new and naive wife. Are we
taking care of her? Setting an
example?
It's just not the wives.
Commands need to remem-
ber that there isn't a draft and
staying in the service is now
more than ever a family deci-
sion. I know of CO's that have
disliked even the thought of
having a support group. I have
seen them completely cut off
all affiliation and say, "If you
want one, have one, but we are
not supporting it" They don't
see what that does to the wives.
They are wrong if they don't
think that it gets back to the
women and in return lowers
the moral of their command.
Every command that we have
been apart of that excelled
professionally had not only
high morale, but an amazing
support group. Coincidence?
Maybe, but I really think it
all goes together. It shows
the command has got it all
together. The service member
leaves on deployment know-
ing that his wife is not alone
and that his command is in
some way looking out for her
and his family. The wife is
able to support her husband's
service and make the most of
the time spent away from her


loved one.
So how do you fix the "prob-
lem"? In my opinion, first and
foremost commands need
to except the importance of
the support group and truly
stand behind it, not just with
a poker face. Wives can see
right through that, and it only
makes things worse.
The wives need to stop with
all the craziness. Stop mak-
ing such a simple group so
complicated. Yes, there should
be bylaws, but for Pete's sake,
stop over-thinking everything.
Stick to the basics. The rules'
lists are getting so long and
complicated that it would
be easier to quote War and
Peace.
The best way to know if
your group is doing the right
thing is to think back to when
you were new. Think of how
you felt, how you were treat-
ed and what your best and
worst memories were. Then,
make a group that you would
have wanted in that moment,
and ask the age old question,
"To FRG or not to FRG?" I say
when all else fails, follow your
gut. Try it out no matter what
you have heard and see how
it fits. There are going to be
some bad apples in the group.
Those are the wives that bring
hate and discontent to every
meeting. If you stand strong
and stay positive, they will be
weeded out. When they see
that they are not going to be
able to form a dictatorship or
get their way, they will eventu-
ally conform or leave. If you
don't feel good about it, be
proactive and try to help it
evolve. If that doesn't work,
you can always walk away.
So if you haven't been to a
FRG meeting, go! If you have a
less than perfect FRG, be pro-
active. If your FRG rocks, pat
yourselves on your back and
thank your command. Good
luck! Questions or comments?

Local View



Giving thanks for past, years to come


By Paul Kraack
Periscope contributor
From the moment they
walked in the door of
the Clayton County
Performing Arts Center, her 24
young actors and crewmem-
bers were in awe.
Their eyes widened at the
imposing building exte-
rior, with its 100-foot stage
house enclosure rising next
to Interstate 75. They were
wowed as they walked the
stage with its 70-foot prosceni-
um, climbed the 82-foot-high
spiral staircase to the catwalks
and visited the control booth
containing the light board and
spotlights.
They all had experience
in our own lovely and high-
ly functional auditorium.
They just had not seen a
house this unusual, with its
three theaters, two of which
are on rotating turntables, its
mechanical locking rail, art
gallery, huge scene shop and
multiple dressing rooms.
They quickly adjusted to the
space and became an appre-
ciative audience for their fel-
low competitors. During their
performance time, they were
dramatic and fluid on-stage.
They captured the audience,
acquitting themselves won-
derfully against the finest
competition in the state.
However, they were not pre-
pared for what they found on
walls of the walkway between
the stage house and the dress-
ing rooms. Adorning those
walls is a photographic record,
the visual history of a com-

munity and educational the-
ater program begun by the
Camden students' director in
1990 while she worked there.
For more than 15 years, involv-
ing nearly 5,000 students, par-
ents and volunteers, the cast
photos reveal the reality of a
vision that resulted in nearly
60 productions that played
to more than 80,000 patrons
from 1990 to 2004. The photos
showed young performers in
the earliest shows, as flowers,
animals and orphans in their
childhood years.
Visual evidence indi-
cates their progress as danc-
ers, actors and musicians in
later shows. Occasionally,
one would see their director
mentioned on a show's noted
credits or glimpse a younger
version of her where she had
been coaxed into one of these
cast photos.
For her, this place was an
important part of her jour-
ney. From high school drama
teacher to technical director
and theatrical producer, she


has touched the lives of stu-
dents across Georgia, many
of them now furthering their
dreams through study or pro-
fessional work. For her to share
it with her current students
was important, especially
since they knew that this show
was to be her last official show
with them. You see, she had
brought this troupe and their
unique show, about the power
of women to love and care for
each other and make a differ-
ence in the worst and best of
times, face to face with history
- her history and a definitive
moment in that passage, her
impending retirement from
active teaching.
While they shared this
moment, I looked on with
some friends in the audience,
one of whom had been instru-
mental in helping her start
her teaching career almost 30
years ago.
As the play closed, our friend
turned to me and, with tears
glistening in her eyes, she
breathed, "Lovely, just lovely.
What a fitting way for her to
close out her career."
I couldn't talk, but I nodded
my agreement.
For all those great students
and loving parents, for all those
that made her dreams become
reality, for all those friends
and audiences that enjoyed
"playing" with her this is
our time to say thanks. For
all her professional colleagues
that joined her in this passion,
your support and assistance
can never be repaid, only
acknowledged and deeply
appreciated. And for our fam-


ily- children, parents, cousins,
aunts, uncles and grandchil-
dren we are also thankful.
You are her greatest joy and
best audience.
We will be giving thanks this
week with the newest member
of our family, holding her and
declaring her a miracle of love
and medicine. As I hold Eden
in my arms and try not to let
my tears stain her little blan-
ket, I will whisper to her about
her grandmother's story and
promise her that she will not
be denied the experience of
playing with grandma, wher-
ever and whenever that hap-
pens in the future.
If you have ideas or events
you want me to share with
readers, send me a note at

Wounded Warrior


Diaries launched


By Lt. Jennifer Cragg
Special to American Forces Press
Service
Defense Department offi-
cials launched the Wounded
Warrior Diaries, a multime-
dia Web tribute in which
American servicemembers
wounded in combat share sto-
ries of their service, including
their hard-won battles on the
road to recovery and the ups
and downs of life in the wake
of injury.
Located at http://www.
defenselink.mil/home/fea-
tures/2008/0908 wwd/index.
html, the Wounded Warrior
Diaries feature videos of ser-
vicemembers relaying their
stories in their own words. The
videos are accompanied by a
written account of their expe-
riences. The site launched with
four diaries, and a new diary
will be added each month.
"The diaries are intended to


be sources of strength, encour-
agement and reassurance for
other wounded troops and
their families," Navy Lt. Cmdr.
Brook DeWalt, DoD's direc-
tor of new media, said. "They
illustrate the ultimate triumph
over injury returning to full
and active lives through hard
work and the support of loved
ones, the community and the
military family."
In addition, the process of
creating the diaries is meant to
be therapeutic for the service-
members, DeWalt said, not-
ing that in some cases, their
spouses and children take part
in the interviews.
"Finally, the diaries are cre-
ated to honor the service, sac-
rifice, courage and determi-
nation of all who voluntarily
serve in harm's way" he said.
The Wounded Warrior
Diaries launch in November
is part of DoD's Warrior Care
Month.

You may be eligible for


an interest rate reduction


By Lt.JG
IAGC


Ryan Charles


Servicemembers paying
interest rates in excess of 6 per-
cent per year may be entitled
to relief under federal law.
Section 527 of the Service-
member's Civil Relief Act
(SCRA) provides that "[a]n
obligation or liability bear-
ing interest at a rate in excess
of 6 percent per year that is
incurred by a servicemember,
or the servicemember and the
servicemember's spouse joint-
ly, before the servicemember


service shall


enters military
not bear inter-
est at a rate
in excess of 6
percent per
year during
the period of
military ser-
vice." This
means that if
you incurred
a debt in the
form of a
mortgage, car
loan, credit
card balance
or just about


any other financial liability,
prior to entering military ser-
vice, you may be entitled to
reduce your interest payments
to 6 percent during the entire
period of active duty service.
Note, however, that the reduc-
tion does not apply to federally
guaranteed student loans.
A servicemember intending
to invoke the 6 percent interest
rate cap must strictly comply
with the SCRA's notification
procedures. The servicemem-
ber must provide the creditor
with written notice and a copy
of the military orders calling
the servicemember to military
service. Generally, the written
notice should be a letter to the
creditor setting forth: (1) the
basis of the servicemember's
qualification for the 6 percent
interest cap, (that the debt giv-
ing rise to the interest pay-
ment was incurred before the
servicemember went on active
duty); and (2) a request that


the creditor reduce the ser-
vicemember's interest rate to 6
percent pursuant to the SCRA.
The military orders must show
that the servicemember was
called to military service after
the debt or obligation was
incurred.
A court may grant a credi-
tor relief from the interest rate
reduction if the creditor can
show that the servicemember's
ability to pay interest in excess
of 6 percent is not materially
affected by reason of the ser-
vicemember's military service.
However, the burden is on the
creditor to prove that this is


the case. Still,
it is a good
idea for the
servicemem-
ber to include
a statement
in the writ-
ten notice to
the creditor
that his or
her ability to
pay interest
in excess of 6
percent has
been "materi-
ally affected"


by reason of entry into military
service.
The SCRA imposes a time-
line within which requests for
interest rate reductions must
be submitted. The service-
member has until 180 days
after termination or release
from military service to submit
written notice to the creditor.
This means that the interest
rate reduction applies retro-
actively where a servicemem-
ber has been paying interest in
excess of 6 percent after being
called to military service.
The creditor should account
for any interest payment in
excess of 6 percent made by a
sevicemember since the date
of active duty. However, it is
preferable to provide written
notice as soon as possible after
being called to active duty in
order to avoid disputes with
creditors and complications in
calculating over interest pay-
ments. Also, it is the service-


member's obligation to inform
a creditor if military service
is subsequently terminated.
Otherwise, the former ser-
vicemember is liable for any
interest forgiven by the credi-
tor after being released from
military service.
The SCRA mandates that
interest in excess of 6 percent
is "forgiven," and cannot sim-
ply be deferred until the peri-
od of military service ends.
Also, the SCRA broadly defines
"interest" to include service
charges, renewal charges, fees,
or any other charges, except
bona fide insurance. This pro-
tects servicemembers from
creditors trying to cleverly dis-
guise the forgiven interest as
"legitimate" charges and fees.
Moreover, the SCRA forbids
creditors from taking adverse
action against a servicemem-
ber's credit report for request-
ing an interest rate reduction
pursuant to the SCRA.
Remember, the interest rate
reduction does not apply to
debt incurred by a spouse
alone. As a second practice
point, some creditors are
willing to lower interest rates
below 6 percent (even to 0
percent) for pre-military debt.
Therefore, servicemembers
should contact each individu-
al creditor to find out its policy
before sending written notice
and locking in the 6 percent
cap.
As a final word of caution,
debts incurred by a service-
member after entering mili-
tary service are not subject to
the 6 percent interest cap and
will incur interest at the nor-
mal percent.
If you believe you might
qualify for an interest rate
reduction, visit a legal assis-
tance attorney. Call them at
(912) 573-3959.

Naval Submarine Base Kings
Bay welcomed members of
the Cherokee of Georgia tribe,
including Chief Tall Oak Martin, to
celebrate Native American Heritage
Day Nov. 19 at the Base Chapel.
Beforehand, the guest enjoyed lunch
at the Pirates Cove Galley with a
Native American Heritage Meal.
The ceremony featured guest
speaker Martin; remarks from Coast
Guard Capt. (Sel) Alan L. Reagan,
who has had "family living here for
over 1,000 years;" the introduction
of Martin by Rev. Ralph V. Crews of
Cherokee of Georgia; all preceded by
Trident Refit Facilities' Joel E. Garrido
Sr.'s opening remarks. The ceremony
was held concurrently with National
American Indian and Alaska Native
Heritage months, themed "Living in
many worlds."
"Tribal traditions have brought
values and ideas that have become
ingrained in our American spirit
and add significance to our Navy,"
said Garrido, Special Emphasis
Program Manager for TRF. "During
this observance, let us enhance our
understanding and appreciation of
American Indian and Alaska Native
heritage and the diversity we all bring
to this great nation."
Reagan spoke on the historical
struggles Native Americans and how
the Living in many worlds theme
describes their triumphs. Once such
incident involved the forced displace-
ment of native peoples from Georgia
to the Indian Territory in Oklahoma


or/Js


by U.S. troops during the late 1830s.
Chief Martin, who served in the
Navy for 20 years, was one of several
who fought to repeal the law that
made it illegal to be an Indian in the
state of Georgia from 1825 to 1980.
Highlights of the ceremony
included multiple Native American
dances accompanied by the drum
of "Thunder Women," Bonnie
Nobles and daughters, Amber and
Cheyenne. Chief Martin's wife, Vernie
"MaMa" Martin, told traditional
stories, emphasizing that they are
meant to serve as life lessons and
have meanings aside from being
entertaining. She also introduced
several women wearing a variety of
Native American garbs. MaMa Martin
also invited anyone interested to visit
their Cherokee of Georgia ceremonial
grounds near St. George.
"This is a celebration to see a
little bit of what Indian people are
about;'," said Rev. Ralph "Running
Deer" Crews of the Georgia Council
of American Indians Concerns. "Our
tribe is a busy tribe and it is on the
grow. It's getting bigger and bigger
every year."
Crews also invited interested
people to learn more about Native
American culture at the ceremonial
grounds.
"And if people have not seen a
seven-sided council house there
are only three of those in the world
- it's worth the trip over," he said.
The tribe members said they were
grateful to have the NSB Kings Bay
Color Guard perform at a powwow
held at ceremonial grounds in early
October.

Volunteer coaches help make a difference


By MC1 (SW) Joe Sabo
Periscope Staff
Are you looking for a fun way to donate your time and make a
difference in someone's life?
Do you remember your favorite league coach or your high
school coach?
Camden Recreation and Leisure Services and the Naval Station
Kings Bay Youth Center always is looking for someone to mentor
kids in the basic fundamentals of sports.
More than 20 military and base employees enjoy the activity
of coaching youth sports through the recreation department or
on base. It is one thing to donate time in a command community
relations project, but donating time for the sake of caring about
people is equally important.
YNC Curtis Woods, administrative officer for Strategic
Weapons Facility Atlantic, has his reasons for coaching. He
coaches youth football with MTI(SS) Jamaine Burrus of the


Trident Training Facility.
"I started coaching when I was a young second class petty
officer," Woods said. "And I was kind of homesick and I started
coaching. I enjoyed it and have been doing it ever since. Some of
these kids don't have father figures in there life, and I am happy
to give some discipline and a male figure to teach them guy stuff.
I don't have any sons of my own, but I like teaching young men
the tools that sports teach you that you may not learn in school
or at home."
KittBrown, athletic department assistant at Camden Recreation
Center, said volunteer coaches serve an important role.
"Coaching teaches children the fundamentals of the sport they
are participating in," Brown said. "It also teaches sportsmanship,
teamwork, hard work and dealing with adversity. It teaches kids
how to work towards a goal. With basketball, soccer, baseball,
football and numerous other sports, we need coaches depend-
ing how many kids we have signed up to play a sport. But, it is
always good to have motivated people wanting to coach help the


kids learn something new and learn how to be competitive in a
positive way."
Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Youth Sports Coordinator
Patricia Anglehart is looking for coaches for the upcoming bas-
ketball, baseball and soccer seasons in all age groups. Basketball
sign ups are now open until Dec. 1.
"We have over 100 people that volunteer to coach sports and
all of them are military, base employee or a dependent affiliated
with Kings Bay," Anglehart said. "It is a great way to give back to
the base. It is a fun and rewarding hobby. It teaches kids more
than the sports themselves. It makes a difference in the kids
life."
If you are interested coaching youth sports at Camden
Recreation Department or Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay
Youth Center, contact them.
For youth sports at Kings Bay, call 573-8202 or e-mail Patricia.
anglehart@navy.mil. For contacting Camden Recreation and
Leisure Services, call (912)729-5600.

Exam


results


released

From Chief of Naval Personnel
Public Affairs


The Chief of Naval Personnel
(CNP) released the Cycle 200
active-duty advancements
Nov. 19 for the fall 2008 exam
cycle.
Overall advancement oppor-
tunityheld steadyfor the fourth
straight exam cycle, with total
opportunity decreasing by
only .56 percent, from 24.69
percent to 24.13 percent.
Sailors taking the E-4
test saw their advancement
opportunity increase from
42.54 percent to 43.94 per-
cent (+1.40 percent), while E-
5 quotas stayed stable at 22.60
percent (-.68 percent), and E-
6 test takers saw opportunity
decrease slightly from 12.14
percent to 10.75 percent (-
1.39 percent).
Rear Adm. Dan Holloway,
director of CNP's policy
branch, said "I'm happy to see
advancement remain steady
once again. We saw a smooth
trend from last year to this
year, and given our increased
retention through all pay-
grades, that's very encourag-
ing news."
"We'll be watching advance-
ment very closely in 2009 and
beyond," Holloway said. "If
we continue to see increased
retention, especially in the
senior pay grades, upcoming
advancement cycles could
see a decrease in opportunity,
especially at the E-7 to E-9
level."'

IRS has $266 million

in refunds, economic

stimulus payments


From Internal Revenue Service

The Internal Revenue
Service is looking for taxpay-
ers who are missing more than
279,000 economic stimulus
checks totaling about $139
million and more than 104,000
regular refund checks totaling
about $103 million that were
returned by the U.S. Postal
Service due to mailing address
errors.
"People across the country
are missing tax refunds and
stimulus checks. We want to
get this money into the hands
of taxpayers where it belongs,"
said IRS Commissioner Doug
Shulman. "We are commit-
ted to making the process as
easy as possible for taxpayers
to update their addresses with
the IRS and get their checks."
It is crucial that taxpayers
who may be due a stimulus
check update their address-
es with the IRS by November
28. By law, economic stimu-
lus checks must be sent out
by December 31. The unde-
liverable economic stimulus
checks average $583.
The "Where's My Stimulus
Payment?" tool on IRS.gov is
the quickest and easiest way
for a taxpayer to check the sta-
tus of a stimulus check and
receive instructions on how
to update his/her address.
Taxpayers without internet
access should call (866) 234-
2942.
The regular refund checks
that were returned to the IRS
average $988. These checks


are resent as soon as taxpayers
update their address.
Taxpayers can update their
addresseswiththe "Where'sMy
Refund?" tool on the IRS.gov.
It enables taxpayers to check
the status of their refunds. A
taxpayer must submit hi/her
social security number, filing
status and amount of refund
shown on their 2007 return.
The tool will provide the status
of their refund and in some
cases provide instructions on
how to resolve delivery prob-
lems.
Taxpayers checking on a
refund by phone will be given
instructions on how to update
their addresses. Taxpayers can
access a telephone version of
"Where's My Refund?" by call-
ing (800) 829-1954.
Taxpayers not sure of which
type of check they may be due
should check on a potential
economic stimulus check first
because of the looming dead-
line. Check the dates above.
The IRS encourages taxpay-
ers to choose direct deposit
when they file their return
because it puts an end to
lost, stolen or undeliverable
checks. Taxpayers can receive
refunds directly into personal
checking or savings accounts.
Direct deposit is available for
filers of both paper and elec-
tronic returns.
The IRS also encourag-
es taxpayers to file their tax
returns electronically because
e-file eliminates the risk of lost
paper returns. E-file reduces
errors and speeds up refunds.

Oral hygiene vital


to overall health ,l


By Lisa Glaeser-Joseph
and HM2 Mark
Niederhaus

Thorough oral hygiene
habits should be part of your
daily routine. Failure to prac-
tice good oral hygiene may
cause significant harmful
consequences to your overall
health. Poor hygiene typically
leads to halitosis, known as
bad breath, decay, periodontal
(gum) disease, and possibly
pre-term births.
In general, people do not
realize that dental and some
medical conditions are close-
ly linked. For example, peri-
odontal disease is an infection
targeting the supporting struc-
tures of the teeth, gum tissue
and underlying bone. The
destructive bacteria produced
with this infection enters the
bloodstream and causes an
inflammatory response that
negatively affects arteries. It
is estimated that roughly 75
percent of adults have some
degree of periodontal disease
and most do not know it.
Recent research has indicat-
ed thatuncontrolled periodon-
tal disease is a significant risk
factor for chronic heart disease
and myocardial infarctions,
also known as heart attacks.
Researchers have found that
people with periodontal dis-
ease are almost twice as likely
to suffer from coronary artery
disease as those without the
disease.
Diabetic individuals are
more prone to periodontal
problems considering their
increased susceptibility to
infections. Some research
indicates that 95 percent of
diabetic adults have some type
of gum disease.
Pregnant women with peri-
odontal disease are seven
to eight times more likely to
have a pre-term, low birth
weight baby. Realizing that
any infection in an expectant
mother can pose a serious risk
to the unborn baby, United
Concordia has enhanced the
TRICARE Dental Program


(TDP) benefit for active duty
families, allowing pregnant
women up to three routine
dental cleanings in a consec-
utive 12-month period at no
cost, instead of the traditional
two cleanings.
The mouth-body connec-
tion should not be overlooked
when considering overall
health for the adult popula-
tion. There are a few simple
steps one can follow to avoid
these dental ailments. First
and foremost, see your dentist
and dental hygienist routinely
- this is a requirement for all
active duty personnel as part of
the annual Preventive Health
Assessment (PHA). The dental
professionals will be able to
point out any problems and
will set up the proper steps to
attain a healthy mouth.
In the meantime, brush
your teeth at least three times
a day with an American
Dental Association (ADA) seal
approved soft toothbrush and
fluoridated toothpaste. Use
floss daily to keep the areas
between your teeth plaque
free. Remember, you only have
to floss the teeth you plan on
keeping. Good oral hygiene is
simple and essential in keep-
ing your entire body healthy.
For the sake of your overall
health, get serious about the
health of your mouth.
Active duty personnel
may contact their command
PHA representative or call
the Branch Health Clinic
(BHC) Jacksonville Dental
Department at 542-3441, ext.
7116 for assistance. For more
information about the TDP

bers of active duty personnel,

gram.com.

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, November 27, 2008


General seeks progress


in Iraq, Afghanistan


By Air Force Master Sgt.
Adam M. Stump
Special to American Forces Press
Service

Back home after an eight-
day trip that included some
out-of-the-way locations, the
vice chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff said he found
troops to be motivated and
saw some eyes opened to the
work U.S. servicemembers are
doing.
Marine Corps Gen. James
E. Cartwright took three con-
gressional staff members, an
employer of Army National
Guardsmen and five United
Service Organizations enter-
tainers on his Nov. 9 to 16 trip.
The general said his trip was
designed to get some recogni-
tion for the forces for the job
they're doing and bring them
a "slice of home" with some
entertainment. The vice chair-
man's tour included stops at
Thule Air Base, Greenland,
and three locations in Alaska
- places people usually don't
visit when the weather gets
cold.
"We spent a significant
amount of time and focus
going to places that people
don't normally visit," the gen-
eral said.
He said these trips offer the
opportunity to thanktroops for
their service and help people
understand their contribution
is important no matter where
they are, whether it's the mis-
sile fields, the radar sites or the
demilitarized zone in Korea.
The general said he found
troops still are motivated to do
their respective missions.
"I found a substantial moti-
vationinside the forces, includ-
ing Iraq and Afghanistan, all
over the world and found peo-
ple believed what they were
doing was making a differ-
ence;'," the vice chairman said.
"I did find varying levels of
satisfaction about what they
were accomplishing, which


I wouldn't have expected to
not find. But by and large, the
more opportunity they have
to do their mission, the more
opportunity they have to both
interact with allies and locals,
the more satisfied they were."
Cartwright said he did find
obstacles to overcome, includ-
ing getting greater mobil-
ity in Afghanistan and seem-
ingly everyone wanting more
intelligence, surveillance and
reconnaissance capability. But
overall, he said, morale was
good.
"The forces that are out
there that have been on
repeated deployments are get-
ting tired, but it's not detract-
ing from their motivation or
their job performance," the
general said. "If we can get the
time at home to start to grow
a little bit, I think it will make
a big difference in retention,
on their mental health, their
perspective about being in an
all-volunteer force and staying
for extended periods of time in
the military."
Cartwright also said the
mood of troops in Iraq has
changed since he was there a
year ago.
"[Last year], there was a
light at the end of the tunnel,
but we weren't sure what the
light was," he said. "This year,
it was very clear that we are
on a path to move forward in
Iraq, because we have funda-
mentally changed the mission
out there and the perspective
of the warfighters about why
they were there and what they
were there to do."
Along with the mood
change, Cartwright said, the
U.S. troops are seeing greater
capability out of their Iraqi
counterparts.
"Their confidence in the
Iraqi military and police was
substantially higher than any-
thing I'd seen in the past," the
general said.
In Afghanistan, Cartwright
said, significant challenges


remain.
"Even if we have troop
increases, there's still a sub-
stantial amount of work to be
done," he said. "Everybody
there that I talked to believed
there was a way forward in
Afghanistan, but it was going
to take longer and it was going
to take substantially greater
resources because of what is
needed in the way of an infra-
structure base to build from."
Cartwright said trips like
these are important because
of what he sees when he looks
in young troops' eyes.
"You feed off their energy,"
the general said. "There's no
way you cannot do that. No
matter how far removed I am
from my first tour, I can see
myself. You also see in their
eyes the fact that they're start-
ing to understand other per-
spectives than their own."
The vice chairman said it
also was important for the
congressional staffers he
brought along to interact with
the troops, sometimes one-
on-one, to "see morale levels
for themselves." He said the
staffers were able to talk to
both senior leaders and the
warfighting privates in an
unscripted environment.
"They're better served and
we're better served for them
understanding what's going
on out there," the general said.
Cartwright said bringing
the Guard employer, Patrick
Smith, was important so he
could see the mission first-
hand.
Although Smith has a medi-
cal background, Cartwright
said, he brought Smith to sev-
eral locations with different
missions so he could see the
other pieces of the Defense
Department mission.
"If we just take him to one
spot [and] say, 'Here's the
mission that relates to what
you and your people will do,'
I think he misses the bigger
picture," the general said.

required to convert uniform
rating badges to the SK rating
badge no later than Oct. 1,
2011.
"Over the past several years,
the postal clerk rating has been
shrinking. We went from hav-
ing an enlisted authorization
of almost 1,000 people, and
now we're down to 645. It's
at a point now that we're los-
ing billets faster than we lose
people, which stifles promo-
tion;' said Master Chief Postal
Clerk (SW/AW) Ron Guyton,
the Navy's technical advisor
for the supply ratings.
The rating merger overall
will benefit the Sailors more
than two separate rates would,
Guyton said.
As an element of the Navy's
total force strategy, this merg-
er will capitalize on the knowl-
edge, skills and abilities found
in the two ratings and apply
them toward a unified mission

according to the NAVADMIN.
"With most PCs gone from
smaller ships, the storekeepers
are doing that work already,
and it's been successful. So
now we're taking a bigger step
and training more Sailors to do


a wider variety of jobs. There's
no way the Navy can lose by
having better trained Sailors,"
Guyton said.

Cycle


class


a must
By MC2 Shannon Warner
USS John C. Stennis Public Affairs
New personal protective
equipment (PPE) require-
ments for motorcycle riders
are being enforced at Naval
Base Bremerton.
The measures are due to the
rise in motorcycle fatalities
and accidents in fiscal year
(FY) 2008. In FY08, 33 Sailors
died Navywide in motorcycle-
related incidents, an increase
of 65 percent from FY 2007.
"The biggest factor we see
in motorcycle accidents is
lack of experience and people
not wearing proper PPE," said
Motorcycle Safety Foundation
Rider Coach Senior Chief
Aviation Ordnanceman (AW)
Lamberto Loyola.
A couple of FY08 motorcy-
cle accidents involved Stennis
Sailors, neither of whom was
wearing all of the required
PPE directed in Traffic Safety
Definitions OPNAVINST
5100.12H.
The instruction explains
what PPE Sailors are required
to wear when they ride.
Sailors without full PPE will
be denied access to military
bases.
Proper PPE includes protec-
tive clothing as well as head,
eye and foot protection.
Head protection must be a
Department of Transportation
(DOT) or Snell Memorial
Foundation certified helmet.

Chief Petty Officer Eric Holewinski, right, a rider-coach accredited by the Motorcycle Safety
Foundation, explains proper leaning techniques to students, Petty Officer 3rd Class Katherine
Waltz, left, and Petty Officer 1st Class Brandon Ray, at Misawa Air Base. The course is
required for all U.S. Navy personnel who ride sport motorcycles.


The helmet must properly fas-
ten underneath the chin. Fake
and novelty helmets are pro-
hibited by the Navy.
"Not wearing a helmet is like
playing Russian roulette with
your life," Loyola said.
Proper eyewear includes:
impact or shatter-resistant
safety glasses, goggles, wrap-
around glasses that seal the
eyes, or a face shield attached
to the helmet. A windshield
is not considered proper eye
protection; nor are sunglass-
es or common prescription
glasses.
Foot protection must be
sturdy and cover the ankle to
protect Sailor's feet.
Sailors also need to wear
proper protective clothing


while riding their motorcycles.
Proper protective clothing is
a long-sleeved shirt or jacket,
long pants and full-fingered
gloves or mittens designed for
motorcycle use.
Reflective garments or a vest
must also be worn at night
to help other motorists spot
motorcyclists.
"If you value your life, you
need to wear your proper pro-
tective clothing," said Safety
Leading Chief Petty Officer
Chief Aviation Boatswain's
Mate (Equipment) (AW/SW)
Howard Smith.
According to Smith, not
wearing proper PPE while on a
motorcycle could lead to pun-
ishment under the UCMJ for
failure to obey a lawful order.

Street Smart helps Sailors

adopt safe driving habits


By MC3 Coleman
Thompson
Fleet Public Affairs Center Atlantic
The Street Smart Program
brought driving safety to the
forefront of Sailors' minds
aboard Naval Station Norfolk
Nov. 19 by reminding them
of easy ways to decrease the
chances of being injured in a
car accident.
Every year, car accidents
cause countless deaths and
are one of the leading causes
of fatalities among service
members in the United States,
according to the Stay Alive For
Education (SAFE) Program.
SAFE created its Street Smart
training classes to help edu-
cate service members about
precautions that can help save
lives but are often overlooked.


Professional paramedics and
fire rescue crew members who
have seen the results of these
accidents first-hand taught the
seminar.
"We talk about the dangers
of drinking and driving, of not
wearing seat belts and mak-
ing other poor choices," said
Vince Easevoli, a paramedic
for Miami-Dade County, and
an instructor for the course.
"We also talk about the pro-
cess that we as paramedics go
through in getting you from
the accident to the emergency
room."
Easevoli and his partner,
Ronnie Garcia, informed
Sailors on statistics that prove
using simple safety measures
can greatly increase chances
for survival in a car accident.
"Use common sense if


you're going to go out. By all
means have a good time, but
do it smartly," said Easevoli.
"Every time you get into a
vehicle it doesn't matter what
seat you're in, have your seat
belt on every single time.
"If you take simple precau-
tions, such as wearing your
seat belt, it'll stack the odds in
your favor to make sure that
you're not seriously injured or
killed."
During the seminar other
information was given out that
highlighted many other ways
that one can ensure safety and
survivability during a traumat-
ic accident.
The program holds training
seminars worldwide through-
out the year.

the fleet, visit www.navy.mil.


Navy College helps Sailors learn

where to pursue degrees of choice


By MCSA Ash Severe
Fleet Public Affairs Center Atlantic
Navy College Office Naval
Station Norfolk hosted its
Third Annual Education Open
House Nov. 19, giving Sailors a
chance to talk with reps from
different colleges and univer-
sities about myriad educa-
tional programs and degrees.
"Navy College Program's
open house is like an edu-
cational fair that brings the
schools to the Sailor, giving
them a better chance to find
the program that is right for
them," said Master Chief Navy
Counselor (SW/AW) Jose
A. Velazquez, Navy College
Program career counselor
liaison and Wounded Warrior
Program education counsel-
ing coordinator. "This event is
just one of many events being
held by the Navy College
Program. We have 52 other
sites worldwide doing events
in conjunction with Education
Week."


Navy College Program has
also developed a partnership
program with 27 colleges and
universities to offer rating-rel-
evant degrees.
"Many of the schools now
offer Navy rate-related pro-
grams," said Maria P. Rowe,
director, NavyCollege Program
Naval Station Norfolk. "If you
choose a rate-related pro-
gram your SMART transcript
(Sailor/Marine American
Council on Education Registry
Transcript) will transfer over."


The Navy College's open
house is just one way the Navy
College Program helps Sailors
pursue an educational degree
while in the Navy.
"I need to finish my degree,
and it's nice that they brought
everything I need to start it
in one central place," said
Missile Technician 3rd Class
Christopher Cappy, USS
Alaska (SSBN 732).

Station Norfolk, visit www.

Imagine facing blindness, kidney failure or amputation.
Kids like Samrnantha deserve more
to look forward to than daily
injections and incurable disease.
Although insulin can help, it is
not the cure. In fact, diabetes
kills one American every three
minutes.
At last, there's hope.
Research funded by the Juvenile
Diabetes Foundation is closer
than ever to a cure. But we can't
do it alone.
