Gates stays



as secretary


Defense chief's
watch continues
with endorsement
of new president

By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
President-elect Barack
Obama cited the need for con-
tinuity as the United States
fights two wars in announc-
ing Monday that Defense
Secretary Robert M. Gates will
remain at the Pentagon when
his administration takes over
next month.
"At a time when we face
an unprecedented transition
amidst two wars, I have asked
Robert Gates to continue as
secretary of defense, and I'm
pleased that he's accepted,"
Obama said at a news confer-
ence in Chicago. "He restored
accountability. He won the
confidence of military com-
manders and the trust of our
brave men and women in uni-
form and their families. He
earned the respect of members
of Congress on both sides of
the aisle for his pragmatism
and competence. He knows
that we need a sustainable
national security strategy, and
that includes a bipartisan con-
sensus at home.'
The president-elect said he
will tell the secretary to end the
war in Iraq through a success-
ful transition to Iraqi control.
"We will also ensure that we


have the strategy, and resourc-
es, to succeed against al-Qaida
and the Taliban," he said. "As
Bob said not too long ago,
Afghanistan is where the war
on terror began, and it is where
it must end.
Gates thanked the president-
elect for his confidence.
"I am deeply honored that
the president-elect has asked
me to continue as secretary of
defense;'," Gates said in Chicago.
"Mindful that we are engaged
in two wars and face other seri-
ous challenges at home and
around the world, and with a
profound sense of personal
responsibility to and for our
men and women in uniform
and their families, I must do
my duty as they do theirs. How
could I do otherwise?
"Serving in this position for
nearly two years, and especial-
ly the opportunity to lead our
brave and dedicated soldiers,
sailors, airmen, Marines and
Defense civilians, has been the
most gratifying experience of
my life. I am honored to con-
tinue to serve them and our
country, and I will be hon-
ored to serve President-elect
Obama."
Obama said the national
security challenges facing the
country are as grave and urgent
as the economic crisis.
"We are fighting two wars,"
he said. "Old conflicts remain
unresolved, and newly asser-
tive powers have put strains
on the international system.

Bachelor quarters


upgrades ongoing

undergoes scrutiny


New mattresses,

fixtures, carpet
for each room

By MC1 (SW) Joe Sabo
Periscope Staff
Housing and quality of life
is a important matter here at
Naval Submarine Base Kings
Bay. The bachelor quarters for
permanent party residents are
taking the initiative to tackle
the tedious and
ongoing task of
improving sail- 'It
ors living con- proce.
ditions.
The first will net
thing done was JI
bringing in a
civilian whose
primary job is
overseeing the barracks. Site
manager Joe Cameron is ada-
mant about improving the
quality of life of his residents.
"We are doing a complete
renovation of the facility to
grounds keeping to updat-
ing the inside of the rooms,"
Cameron said. "It is a process
that will never end. We will
have to continue to renovate
and update and fix problems
in the rooms. With so many
rooms it is important that resi-
dents keep the staff up to date
on problems they have in their
rooms. We can't fix what we
don't know about. The renova-
tion is costing a million dollars
a building, so we are carrying
on at a smart, deliberate pace
for a reason."
The renovations include
CAAC card entry which


s


came into effect on Nov. 21.
You can swipe your Military
Identification card to enter
your room.
Also, new mattresses, fix-
tures, carpeting were installed,
and each room is equipped
with a microwave to cook
meals in the room as well. The
renovation is still in progress,
but 80 percent of the 2,400
beds have new mattresses.
There is progress that is mea-
surable and can be seen.
"It is an ongoing process
to keep the
s a rooms up to
;s that standards,"
said SKC(SS)
er end' Leon Holland,
e Cameron Leading Chief
ite manager Petty Officer of
the Bachelor
Quarters. "As
soon as this renovation is com-
pleted, we will start another
one due to wear and tear.
"When I was new to the
Navy, the barracks rooms were
not nearly as nice as they are
now. It is good to improve the
quality of life for our Sailors.
If a Sailor has a nice place to
sleep, it may positively influ-
ence his performance at work.
A happy home makes a happy,
productive work force."'
The staff members are
highly trained, gaining sever-
al accreditations and certifi-
cates.
"The standards of the bar-
racks are a lot higher than
they used to be," said CS2(SS)
Clarence Wilson of the
Permanent Party Bachelor
Quarters. "If the room isn't up
to standards, we don't let the

taking a lot of pride in our job
and doing the best we can for
the residents."'
Routine room inspections
are completed in the room
for cleanliness and safety haz-
ards or damaged furniture or
equipment.
Another program that the
barracks has reinstituted is the


Resident Advisor program. A
RA is a senior military person
who lives in the barracks who
younger sailors can go to for
guidance, advice or help.
The staff and manage-
ment of the Permanent Party
Bachelor Quarters are here for
you. If you have any questions
or problems, contact the near-
est office, or call 573-3112 and

2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, December 4, 2008


LOCAL NEWS & 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 provi-
sions have been made with the network to ensure that all of
beneficiaries have access to necessary X-ray services. NBHC
Kings Bay staff appreciates 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.

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 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
documentation. This will ensure that all pay entitlements are
either stopped, changed or started in a timely manner, ensur-
ing 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 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 system in their current grade must submit a photo-
graph. 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 offi-
cial photographs. 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 offi-
cial 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 ser-
vice 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 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons from
1:30 to 4:30 p.m. To access the ID card appointment schedul-
er, visit https://es.cac.navy.mil/signup.pl. Be sure you use the
PSD Kings Bay link, not the NSD Kings Bay link. Additionally,
the dynatouch kiosk located in the Navy Exchange may be

ments will be assisted as scheduling permits during these
times. The ID card section is open 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday
through Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday

Here's to a safe, happy holiday season


The holiday season is a
magical, busy time. It is
also a time for a extra
safety. Crime rates rise during
the holidays as well as home
accidents.
Here are tips from experts
to ensure a happy holiday sea-
son.
The state police remind
shoppers to stay alert to their
surroundings. Minimize shop-
ping alone after dark. Take
a friend or family member
along. Never park in an unlit
area no matter how conve-
nient the spot.
Avoid carryinglarge amounts
of cash, pay for purchases with
your check card, ATM or credit
card instead. If you must use
an ATM, choose one located
inside a store, mall or other
building and in a well-lighted
location. Only withdraw the
amount of cash you need.
Shield the ATM keypad from
view of anyone standing near-
by, and never throw away your
receipt at the ATM location.
Carry your purse under
your arm, not just over your
shoulder. Place your wallet
in an inside jacket pocket as
opposed to a back pants pock-
et. Keep cash in your front
pocket. Never leave your purse
in the shopping cart or on a
counter while you pay for your
purchases.
Keep packages locked in the
trunk of your car or otherwise
out of view while shopping.


IOteHomFo


Lock all car doors and keep
windows closed. If you take
packages to your car but plan
to continue shopping at the
same location move your car
to a new location within the
parking lot. Carefully check
the front and rear seats and
floors for anyone who may be
hiding there before you enter
your vehicle. Lock your doors
immediately after getting into
your car.
Teach children to go to a
store clerk or security guard
to ask for help if you become
separated. They should never
go to the car alone.
Holiday parties often
include consumption of "holi-
day cheer." Drinking and driv-
ing are a dangerous mix. We
know the facts, but some may
feel "OK to drive." For the sake
of your family members, ship-
mates and others on the road,
if you have been drinking,


Going home for the


Do we stay, or do we go?
That's the question
that almost all military
families ask themselves as the
holidays approach. For some
this is and easy question.
There are many reasons why
you would stay at your duty
station, and there are many
reasons why returning home
to family is important.
Since my husband is
deployed and I was staying for
the holidays, I was curious to
see howmanyotherwiveswere
doing the same thing. I asked
50 women whose husbands
were going to be deployed
through Christmas if theywere
staying at their duty station or
returning home to see family.
Forty-three women said they
are staying. Six said they were
returning home, and one was
undecided. Then, I asked the
follow-up question, why? Is it
because of the economy? Is
it just too far? Five of the 43
women did say it was just too
expensive. But, the other 38
women just frankly stated that
their home is where they are,
even if their husband is away.
I have chosen to stay for a
few reasons. First, going home
can be stressful for me. My
family has very little knowl-
edge of the military, and no
one really gets it. Sometimes
I feel more alone when home
and surrounded by loved ones
than when I am in my own
home while my husband is
deployed. A few of my family
members can stress me out
more than others, which is fine
when my husband is there as
a buffer. Somehow he always
knows what to say, when to say
it, and when to pour me a glass
of wine! Without him there,
I'm not sure I can handle it.
My last reason for staying
home is because this is our
"home." This is where my hus-
band, children and I belong.
It's where we celebrate. I want
to be here. Itwon'tbe easy, but


I will write more about dealing
with that next week.
Right now, you are decid-
ing to stay or go. If you don't
have the means to go home,
consider using Web cams this
year. Some computers have
them all built in. If not, you
can go to almost any store that
sells electronics and get a web
cam and microphone. Go to
www.skype.com, and sign up
for free service. In less than 10
minutes, you can be looking at
and talking to anyone in the
world for free. It's amazing. It's
an easy process, and you can
walk your non-computer liter-
ate family members through it
with ease. Grandparents can
watch the kids open the gifts
they've sent, and they can see
you in that very bright and
unique holiday sweater they
got for you!
If you can afford to go home
and you are just not sure what
you want, make a list. Just sim-
ply write the reasons to stay
and reasons to go. If one list
is longer than the other, it's a
simple answer. OK, so some
of you are saying, "No! It's not
that simple!"
I know if you want to stay
and you feel that you have to
go home, then it is not so sim-
ple. There are many military
families that feel pressure to
return home. At some point,
you need to start doing what
you want to do. I know it is


don't drive. Call a taxi, call a
friend or call the command,
most have a ride program. But,
do not get behind the wheel.
Be extra diligent about lock-
ing doors and windows when
you leave the house, even for a
few minutes. If you are travel-
ing during the holiday, have
a trusted neighbor or family
member watch your home
and pick up your mail and
newspapers. Indoor and out-
door lights should be on an
automatic timer. Leave a radio
or television on so the house
looks and sounds occupied.
Large displays ofholidaygifts
should not be visible through
the windows and doors of your
home. Likewise, do not put
boxes of high-ticket items out
for trash pickup until the day
of pickup. Placing these items
out early advertises the items
in your home.
Holiday baking is a time
for extra kitchen safety.
Wear proper clothes when
you cook. Short, close fitting
sleeves are the best. Turn pot
handles away from the front
of the range so pots are not
accidentally knocked over.
Keep children away from the
range at all times. Keep flam-
mables away from the range,
oven and other heat sources.
Locate towels, curtains and
other items safely. Always use
potholders or oven mitts to
pick up hot items. Never leave
the kitchen unattended when


food is cooking. Have a kitch-
en-rated fire extinguisher eas-
ily accessible.
There is nothing like a fire in
the fireplace or other stoves to
set the ambiance for the holi-
days. Protect your home from
sparks by using a fire screen
made of sturdy metal or heat-
tempered glass. Burn only
seasoned wood. Do not burn
rubbish or scraps of treated
lumber. Add wood carefully.
Sparks can escape into the
room while the screen is open.
Be sure dampers are in work-
ing order and never leave fires
unattended, especially in an
area used by children or pets.
Fireplaces should be profes-
sionally cleaned once a year
regardless of amount of use.
Use caution with holiday
decorations. Keep candles
away from flammable objects
and always attended. Keep
small items out of children's
reach such as Christmas orna-
ments and especially broken
glass bulbs. Also, be aware
of small peanuts and other
holiday confections that can
become a choking hazard.
Holiday safety helps insure a
joyful season. Here's to a happy
and safe holiday season!

Who am I? Well, I yam what I yam


THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, December 4, 2008 3


... Bill Wesselhoff


W th my apologies to
Popeye, allow me
to introduce myself.
I am Bill Wesselhoff, your
new editor of the Kings Bay
Periscope.
Bill Wesselhoff? Who is
that?
Gladyou asked.You're about
to learn more about me than
you ever wanted to know.
Let's start with my name. My
parents named me William
Lee Wesselhoff. William is for
my maternal grandfather, who
was one of the first Illinois
State Policemen. My paternal
grandfather, incidentally, was
a truck driverwho occasionally
bootlegged for extra cash dur-
ing the Depression. William
also is for my dad's best friend
in childhood. He led with his
head in a high school football
game and tragically died.
Lee is because I was con-
ceived in the South. Parris
Island, to be exact.
But, I was born in Rock
Island, Ill., home of the Arsenal


and the Blues Brothers, on the
Mighty Mississippi.
I lived in Rock Island,
Peoria and in fifth grade we
moved to DeKalb, Ill., where
I spent most of my life, grad-
uating from public schools,
Kishwaukee Community
College and Northern Illinois
University. My career in news-
papers began in 1976, when
I became the sports edi-
tor of the Sycamore News. I
was there until 1982 and also
became editor. I moved to the
Daily Chronicle in DeKalb as
a newswriter. After a year I
became assistant sports editor.
After another year I became
sports editor.
Now it's funny, they say
be careful what you wish for,
because when I was in high
school I applied for a job as a
part-time sports writer at the
Chronicle. During my senior
year, after my knee got KO'd
by some kid from West Aurora
in a football game, I joined
the high school paper staff to


Christmas season',


Crooked Rivers Cultural
Heritage Productions,
usually called Crooked
Rivers, is preparing for its
fourth-annual performance,
scheduledforpresentationFeb.
20, 21, 27 and 28 and March 6
and 7 of 2009. To this end,
Crooked Rivers' organizers are
asking friends and neighbors
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 process
of creating an event at what
they call "gatherings."'
The next gathering for
Crooked Rivers, which has
been officially designated as
our county's local cultural
heritage production organiza-
tion, is from 10 a.m. to noon,
Saturday, Dec. 6, at Orange
Hall in downtown St. Marys.
The gathering is an opportuni-
ty for interested cast members,
technicians, stagehands and
volunteers to meet each other
and sign up to be a part of the


2009 productions.
Crooked Rivers productions
are based on the oral and writ-
ten history of our communi-
ty, with music and staging to
help tell the stories. Call (912)
673-7233 for more informa-
tion about the gathering and
Crooked Rivers.
Mark your calendars for
Christmas in the Park in 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
children. Among the planned
activities for the day are a gin-
ger bread house serving up
cookies and cocoa, fun crafts
for children, carnival-style
games, face painting, train
rides for tots, hayrides and sea-
sonal musical entertainment.
All activities are presented at
no cost to attendees.
The day will culminate with
a special showing of The Polar


cover sports. I saw an ad for
sports writers at the Chronicle
and, thinking, "Why not make
money while I'm doing this?"
applied. The interview went
OK, but I failed miserably on
the writing test. I walked out
vowing to myself, "Some day,
I'm going to come back here
and run this place."
I was sports editor of the
Daily Chronicle for 13 years,
longer than anyone in history,


most likely because nobody
else could have afforded it
financially. In truth, I took a
second job mowing at a condo
association. Seeing my tan,
people asked me what I was
shooting on the golf course. I
made up some lies. In time, I
even took a second part-time
job as a bar tender.
Still, it was a great roll
that peaked in covering the
Chicago Bears' 1986 NFC
Championship win over the
Los Angeles Rams. I cov-
ered games from Gainesville,
Fla., to Fresno, Calif. And, x-
1 seemed happy, raising our
daughter in the town she was
raised in, until Heather grew
up and got married, and x-1
ran away with a truck driver.
Mom, living with dad in Ocala,
Fla., was dancing a jig when
that happened. She insisted I
move to Florida.
I did. But, dad had an acci-
dent, and I spent more time as
a homebound co-health care
provider with mom than I did

looking for a job. When dad
became well enough, I left,
to go to Iowa and pursue the
woman who would become
x-2. In Iowa, I also resurrected
my career at a top-notch paper
in Burlington, The Hawk Eye.
And, I enjoyed two great years
living on the Mississippi River,
where my childhood roots
were.
When the high temperature
for the month of December,
2000, was 10 degrees, we
decided to move to Florida.
We landed in Jacksonville,
where I walked, hat-in-hand,
into the Times-Union to land a
job as a part-time sports writ-
er. I moved to a full-time job
there a year later in Specialty
Publications until about a
month ago, eventually run-
ning the Real Estate section
formerly known as Builders
Showcase. In the mean time,
x-2 split.
When offered the job as edi-
tor of The Periscope, I jumped
at it.

Anything But

Continued from Page 2
You can tell them if it is hard
for you, and there is nothing
wrong with asking for their
thoughts and prayers to be
with you and your family. You
can also let them know you
enjoy getting that unexpected
phone call, letter or card. May-
be they haven't thought about
doing those things but would
like to.


Wait.
I left out a part.
After one semester at
Northern Illinois, I dropped
out and in 1973 joined the
Naval Reserve. I went to boot
camp and OS A school at
Great Lakes. I spent two years
aboard the USS Portland, LSD-
37, which now is a fish crib but
at the time was homeported in
Little Creek, Va. For a kid from
the cornfields of Illinois, my
two years before the mast were
two of the most enjoyable of
my life. Excitement. Danger.
Romance. When my time was
up, and they didn't offer me
Lieutenant Commander and
my own state room, it was
on to three years of reserve
meetings at Great Lakes and
Oak Park, Ill., with summer
vacations while I finished col-
lege on the USS Lexington,

USS John E Kennedy, out of

4 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, December 4, 2008

Spending a


weekendon


the Suwannee


By MC3 Eric Tretter
Periscope Staff
There is a certain sophis-
tication to the title Navy
Sea Cadet, especially
when those so titled are not
yet old enough, or maybe
barely old enough, to have a
drivers license. Being in the
Naval Sea Cadet Corps comes
with some responsibilities as
well as serious fun.
One weekend per month,
members are shuttled to
their headquarters and host
command inside Trident
Training Facility for a drill
weekend. For their November
regiment, 14 Sea Cadets from
Kings Bay joined roughly the
same number from Mayport
Naval Station for a weekend
of canoeing and camping
on the tea-colored waters of
the Suwannee River in North
Florida.
"It's easy to stay in Kings
Bay but the kids get bored
with that," said ETC (SS) Mark
Nicholas, Assistant Navigator
aboard the USS Georgia and
Executive Officer of the Sea
Cadets. "Normally we pick up
the cadets one weekend out of
the month on Friday evening
at around 1800. We schedule
events, either working at TTF or
doing training with a military
command, the Marines, weap-
ons training, stuff like that:'."
The cadets, wearing full
battle dress uniforms, gath-
ered supplies and loaded sea
bags into vehicles before 6
a.m., Saturday, Nov. 22. From
the onset, it was apparent
that teamwork, camarade-
rie and military bearing run
supreme. Several hours later,
this impressive cadre of cadets,
ages 10 to 16, were called
together into formation on the
sandbar of a wilderness river
just as readily as they had in
front of the brick, concrete and
steel- headquarters of TTF.
"We have to present our-
selves better if we're in uni-
form," said Steven Nicholas,
14, of Kingsland. "Even if were
wearing a Sea Cadet tee shirt
we have to be on our best
behavior."
The weather was nearly per-
fect, if not for the wet footwear
and excessive splashing creat-
ed by inexperienced paddlers,
to accompany an early eve-
ning chill. Some of the canoes
began the trip with a bad case
of the zigzags. Nine miles later,
most seemed to have mastered
keeping their vessels firmly
pointed downriver.
The cadets kept one another
in line, be it telling a peer to
button the top of their blouse,
reminding another to follow
their "Roger thats" with "Sir,
Ma'am" or "Petty Officer," or by
simply offering advice on pad-
dling and constructing sturdy
and stubborn military tents.
Commanding Officers and
Executive Officers kept their
sea cadets busy most of the
evening. Essentially, cadets
carried all supplies, including
tents heavy enough to warrant
three or four small cadets and
cooking hardware along with
food, and were responsibility
for setting up the camp and
keeping things organized,
clean and neat. They seemed
to relish the responsibility
as opposed to camping trips
which involve sitting and wait-
ing while adults busy them-
selves with arrangements.
The NSCC Charter's mis-
sions is to "...through organiza-
tion and cooperation with the
Department of the Navy, to
encourage and aid American
youth to develop, train them
in seagoing skills, and to teach
them patriotism, courage, self-
reliance and kindred virtues."
"A lot of parents say, 'well,
my kid's not going to go into
the military,' and that's fine.
It's not really about going into
the military, it's learning how
to be an American, how to be
a patriot and understand what
the military does for us;'," Chief
Nicholas said. "It really shows
them that they have self worth.
And that's really our goal. To
help them manage problems


and help make them better
men and women.

more about the Naval Sea
Cadets Corps and what they
do in and around Kings Bay or

Secretary of the Navy visits Bahrain


By MC2 Matt Snodgrass
The Honorable Donald C.
Winter, Secretary of the Navy,
visited Bahrain Nov. 24 to meet
with U.S. and Coalition leaders
and Sailors at the U.S. Naval
Forces Central Command
Headquarters.
Winter also held an all-hands


call at Naval Support Activity
Bahrain to thank the Sailors,
Marines and civilians for their
contributions in helping bring
security and stability to the
region through their support of
Maritime Security Operations.
During his visit to NAVCENT,
Winter discussed the Navy's
important work in the region.


"The U.S. 5th Fleet plays a
crucial role for the Navy here,
and I recognize that each one
of you is a contributor to that
activity," said Winter. "The
security you help provide
deters those who wish to harm
us throughout the region."'
Winter also held talks with
the King of Bahrain, His Majesty


Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa high-
lighting continuing dialogue
and cooperation.
"Having a positive effect here
in Bahrain is very important,"
said Winter. "I am pleased to
see relationships between U.S.
Naval Forces and the Bahraini
government and the Bahraini
people are very positive"

I say without hesitation that
I learned more in two years in
the Navy than I learned in four
years of college.
Oh. There's another thing I
forgot to tell you. Some may
have figured out that dadwas an
Marine. And, x-2's son became
a Marine. He was the son I
never had. So, despite being a
Sailor, I have a special place in
my heart for the Corps.

anywhere else. It makes me
proud of our government.

you were in and before many

times, you tend to lose con-

any generation before them,

nobody's perfect. But, you are
the greatest thing this country
has going. You truly are our
hope for America's future.
That makes me confident in
the days to come.

Bush hails passage of U.S.-Iraq pact


Navy photo by MCSN Chad R. Erdmann

(LHD 7) transits the Persian Gulf.


By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service

President George W. Bush
and other senior U.S. officials
hailed the new U.S.-Iraq secu-
rity pact that was approved by
Iraqi lawmakers in Baghdad
yesterday.
The two-part security pact
consists of a strategic frame-
work agreement that estab-
lishes the foundation of a
long-term bilateral relation-
ship between the United
States and Iraq, as well as a
status-of-forces agreement
that stipulates how U.S. forces
are affected by Iraqi laws.
A majority vote of Iraqi legis-
lators in attendance approved
the new security agreement.
The passage of the pact "affirms
the growth of Iraq's democ-
racy" as well as its "increasing
ability to secure itself," Bush
said in White House state-
ment.
"Two years ago, this day
seemed unlikely but the
success of the surge and the


courage of the Iraqi people set
the conditions for these two
agreements to be negotiated
and approved by the Iraqi par-
liament," Bush continued in
the statement. "The improved
conditions on the ground and
the parliamentary approval of
these two agreements serve
as a testament to the Iraqi,
Coalition, and American men
and women, both military and
civilian, who paved the way for
this day."
Both agreements take effect
Jan. 1, 2009.
They replace a UN mandate
authorizing the U.S. military
presence in Iraq that's slated
to expire Dec. 31, 2008. The
new security pact is slated
for review and final approval
by Iraq's Presidency Council,
Bush said.
"As the two agreements move
to Iraq's Presidency Council
for final approval," Bush said
in the statement, "we con-
gratulate the members of the
Council of Representatives for
coming together to approve


these historic agreements
that will serve the shared and
enduring interests of both our
countries and the region'"
The strategic framework
agreement establishes prin-
ciples of U.S.-Iraqi coopera-
tion in the realms of politics,
defense, diplomacy, security,
culture, economics, energy,
health and environment, law
enforcement and judiciary
functions, and information
technology and communica-
tions.
The 30-article status-of-
forces agreement, known by
the acronym, SOFA, acknowl-
edges that the U.S. troop pres-
ence in Iraq is temporary and
at the request of the sovereign
Iraqi government.
Article 24 of the SOFA
requires U.S. forces to with-
draw from all Iraqi territory
no later than Dec. 31, 2011.
U.S. combat forces in Iraq
also are required to withdraw
from Iraqi cities, villages and
localities no later than June
30, 2009.


The U.S.-Iraq SOFA agree-
ment also stipulates that U.S.
forces may not search Iraqi
homes or other real estate
properties without an Iraqi-
government-issued search
warrant, except during the
case of combat operations.
The two security agree-
ments "formalize a strong and
equal partnership between
the United States and Iraq,"
U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan
C. Crocker and Army Gen.
Raymond T. Odierno, com-
mander of Multinational Force
Iraq, said in joint news release
issued yesterday.
The pact also provides "the
means to secure the signifi-
cant security gains we have
achieved together and to deter
future aggression," Crocker
and Odierno continued.
"They establish a framework
for cooperation in the fields
of defense, political relations,
economics, trade, culture,
education, the rule of law,
health, the environment and
science and technology."

raises the peril that the world's
deadliest technology could
fall into dangerous hands. Our
dependence on foreign oil
empowers authoritarian gov-
ernments and endangers our
planet.'
The United States must be as
strong at home as it is overseas,
and American economic power
must sustain military strength,
diplomatic leverage and global
leadership, he said.
"The common thread linking


these challenges is the funda-
mental reality that in the 21st
century, our destiny is shared
with the world's;'," Obama said.
"From our markets to our secu-
rity, from our public health to
our climate, we must act with
the understanding that, now
more than ever, we have a stake
in what happens across the
globe.
"And as we learned so pain-
fully on 9/11, terror cannot be
contained by borders, nor safe-
ty provided by oceans alone,"
he said.


Obama called for a new dawn
of American leadership to face
and master the challenges of
the 21st century.
"We will strengthen our
capacity to defeat our enemies
and support our friends;'," he
said. "We will renew old allianc-
es and forge new and enduring
partnerships. We will show the
world once more that America
is relentless in defense of our
people, steady in advancing
our interests and committed to
the ideals that shine as a bea-
con to the world democracy


and justice, opportunity and
unyielding hope because
American values are America's
greatest export to the world."
The president-elect also
announced his choices for
other posts: New York Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton as sec-
retary of state, Eric Holder as
attorney general, Arizona Gov.
Janet Napolitano as secretary
of homeland security, retired
Marine Gen. James L. Jones
Jr. as national security advisor
and Susan Rice as U.S. ambas-
sador to the United Nations.

Protect yourself, your family


with a Family Care Plan

Agreement keeps
you covered
when you go
on deployment

By Lt. Jason Kaneyuki,
JAGC, USN


A few days ago, a Sailor
walked into our office. He was
frantic. He just found out that
he had been selected for an
IA. He was frantic because his
wife is also in the Navy, they
have two young children, and
she is currently deployed.
He came to us wanting to
know who to speak to about
his IA orders. Because this
is outside the scope of legal
assistance, we suggested that
he start with his chain of com-
mand and then his detailer.
When we asked about his
Family Care Plan, he insisted
that he did not need one. In
fact, he does. This Sailor said
that since he and his wife took
turns being on shore duty,
they didn't need one. Wrong
again.
Read on to understand what
a Family Care Plan is, who is
required to have one, and the
potential consequences of
not having one. Most impor-
tantly, it will help you avoid a
frantic situation like the one
described above.
A Family Care Plan is the
formal designation of one or
more individuals who agree
to provide care for a service-
member's minor children
and/or adult family members/
dependants. A Family Care
Plan is actually a collection of
documents, all of which are
submitted through the ser-
vicemember's chain of com-
mand as part of the Family
Care Plan package. Specific
requirements include:
1, NAVPERS 1740/6, which
contains a statement that the
caregiver has been thorough-
ly briefed on the needs and
requirements of the persons
in question and the location
of important papers, military
facilities, services, benefits
and entitlements of the fam-
ily members, the specifics of
which will be included on
NAVPERS 1740/07. This form
must be signed by the service-
member, the designated care-
givers, and any other parties
legally entitled to custody.
2, A copy of all powers of
attorney prepared for the care-
giver.
3, A copy of all legal docu-
ments relating to the persons
subject to the Family Care
Plan, including custody or
separation agreements, court
orders, divorce decrees and
other related documents.
4, Written provisions for
short-term absences (TAD,
training, etc.) and long-term
absences (deployments, IA,
unaccompanied tours), as
well as other types of absenc-
es at the discretion of the CO
(extended working hours,
watches, weekend duty).
5, Written provisions regard-
ing financial arrangements,
relocation, and alternate care-
givers of family members and/
or dependants.
6, Any other information
deemed necessary by the CO
or the servicemember that
the command would need to
execute the Family Care Plan
in the absence of the service-
member.
Formal documentation of a
Family Care Plan is required

George Washington to its new home port in Yokosuka, Japan.


for all of the following:
1, A servicemember with
primary or shared physical
custody of a minor child, and
who is not married to the other
parent.
2, Both members of a mar-
ried dual military couple
where one or both have pri-
mary or shared physical cus-
tody of a minor child.
3, A servicemember who is
legally responsible for an adult
family member who is inca-
pable of providing for them-
selves in the absence of the
servicemember.
4, A servicemember who
faces any other family circum-
stance or other personal status
change resulting in his or her
becoming legally and primar-
ily responsible for the care of
another person.
The failure to have or main-
tain a Family Care Plan can
have serious consequences
to your Navy career. COs may
refer for separation service-
members who are not able to
or refuse to maintain a cur-
rent Family Care Plan, do not

able status, or are unable to
perform their professional and
military duties. Additionally, if
separated, you may be subject
to recoupment procedures.
Feeling overwhelmed? Don't
worry. There are resources
available to help you craft your
own Family Care Plan. Each
command is required to have
a Family Care Plan coordina-
tor. Fleet and Family Support
Centers (FFSCs) are also a
valuable resource.
FFSCs can provide informa-
tion and assistance with devel-
oping a Family Care Plan, as
well as individual counseling,
if needed.
Finally, your local legal assis-
tance office can review your
Family Care Plan to ensure
that you have considered local
laws and incorporated any
court orders, decrees or legally
binding agreements.
Be advised that this article is not
intended to be a substitute for official
policy and/or requirements. Please read
NAVADMIN 204/07 and OPNAVINST
1740.4C for the complete instructions
and policy regarding Family Care Plans.

Personal relationships take hard work


By Lt. Elliott Rosenbaum
NHJ Psychology Staff
Studies show that being in
a healthy and supportive rela-
tionship contributes to a per-
son's sense of well-being and
physical health. Like all areas
in our lives, this area takes
hard work and dedication to
succeed, and all relationships
can benefit from some fine-
tuning. Here are four effective
ways to keep your relationship
in great shape.
View your relationship as a
bank account: A healthy bank
account is maintained by hav-
ing more deposits than with-
drawals. In a relationship, a
deposit is doing anything for
your partner that they appre-
ciate and that makes them feel
loved, whether it is a compli-
ment, taking out the trash or
listening to the details of their
day. A withdrawal is doing any-
thing that accomplishes the
opposite like arguing, speak-
ing in a rude tone or being
unhelpful. Ensure that both
you and your partner make
more deposits than withdraw-


als for a healthy relationship.
Learn the essentials of
respectful and assertive com-
munication: Some of us are
great at expressing our needs
and disappointments, but
are not always respectful or
appropriate in our approach.
The literature refers to this as
aggressive communication. It
is not the most effective way
to communicate, because it
sparks bad feelings and argu-
ments. Others of us, in order
to avoid a fight, don't express
our needs to our partner and
are not honest with them in
doing so. This is referred to as
passive communication. It is
also not effective in creating
a positive relationship, as one
partner usually feels unhap-
py. Assertive communication
gives you the best chance at
peacefully getting your point
across. It always consists of the
following four components:
Honest How do you feel?
Appropriate Make sure it
is the right time and place to
discuss this.
Respectful Your tone can
make all the difference.


More Direct Be specific.
What do you want?
Read a good book about
relationships: Books like Men
are From Mars, Women are
From Venus are a great way
to gain insight into potential
pitfalls of relationships such
as ruts and what can be done
about them.

ciated with your situation,

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 were launched in
November as part of DoD's
Warrior Care Month.

From TRICARE
TRICARE officials urge uni-
formed service families to be
prepared for this year's flu sea-
son and an important step to
do so is receive a flu vaccine.
In the United States more
than 220,000 people are hos-
pitalized and 36,000 die every
year as a result of the flu and
flu-related complications. Al-
though infants and the elder-
ly are most at risk for serious
illness or death, many young
people are also hospitalized or
die from the flu each year.
According to the Centers


for Disease Control and
Prevention, a record number
of flu vaccine doses (over 140
million) have been created for
use in the United States dur-
ing the 2008-09 flu season. The
Department of Defense has
secured more than 3.5 mil-
lion doses; influenza vaccina-
tions are required for all active
duty and National Guard and
Reserve service members.
For the first time, the CDC
recommend children from age
6 months to 18 years get the
flu vaccination. Previously, the
CDC recommended flu vacci-
nations for children from age 6


months to 5 years.
TRICARE covers the vaccine
in two forms: The flu shot is an
inactivated vaccine containing
a killed virus and given with a
needle. This form of the vac-
cine may be used in all age
groups. The nasal-spray flu
vaccine, or Flu Mist, is a vac-
cine made with live, weakened
flu viruses. This form of the
vaccination is limited only to
healthy people who are not
pregnant or between the ages
of 2 and 49.
The flu shot is covered for
beneficiaries, as long as it is
administered in a doctor's


office. Flu shots administered
in a civilian pharmacy, drug-
store or other location are not
covered by TRICARE. For
TRICARE for Life beneficiaries,
Medicare covers flu vaccines
and TRICARE is second payer,
if needed.
Military treatment facilities
and clinics also offer flu vacci-
nations. Check locally for more
information.

cines on the CDC's flu page

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, December 4, 2008 13


Fourth MCPON passes away


iBy MCSC (SW/AW) Bill
oulihan
Master Chief Petty Officer
of the Navy Public Affairs

Retired Master Chief Petty
Officer of the Navy (MCPON)
Thomas S. Crow died Nov. 30,
at his home in San Diego fol-
lowing a courageous battle
with cancer. He was 74.
Crow became the fourth
Master Chief Petty Officer of
the Navy Sept. 28, 1979. He
relieved MCPON John Walker
and held the job for three
years before MCPON Billy
Sanders assumed the duties
Oct. 1, 1982.
Crow was born in McArthur,
Ohio, in 1934 and joined the
Navy a few days after gradu-
ating high school in 1953.
Crow spent several years in
the aviation community prior
to becoming one of the Navy's
original equal opportunity
specialists and counselors. He
was assigned to Commander,
Naval Air Pacific where he
served as a trainer for race
relations and a member of
the quality control inspection
team for overseas WESTPAC
units and carriers.
After completion ofthe equal
opportunity program special-


ist training at Cheltenham,
Md., he became a program
manager for AIRPAC, imple-
menting Phase II of the equal
opportunity/race relations
program aboard carriers in the
Pacific.
Crow was selected for
MCPON in June 1979. During
his time in office, he was
instrumental in the opening
of the Navy's Senior Enlisted
Academy and the re-emphasis
on pride and professionalism
across the fleet.
"He never lost that," said
Master Chief Petty Officer of
the Navy Joe R. Campa, Jr.
"He never lost his passion for
Sailors. Every time I spoke
with him it never took him
long to turn the conversation
back to what our men and
women were doing, and what
we should be doing for them."
As part of an interview for
the book, "Winds of Change,"
Crow said he was aware early
in his tour of fleet perceptions
and he added that he kept the
seagoing Sailor in mind at all
times.
"I came from out in the fleet
and I wanted to continue to
see the Navy through that set
of eyes," he said at the time.
"I was not going to allow the


job to turn me into a bureau-
crat or a politician who would
bring back to the CNO (Chief
of Naval Operations) what I
thought he wanted to hear."
Campa said the entire Navy's
chiefs mess mourns the loss of
one of the finest leaders the
enlisted force has ever pro-
duced.
"Tom Crow's legacy is still
alive through the Sailors he
mentored, even after he
retired," said Campa. "Sailors
he trained are leading our
Navy to this day, and the les-
sons they learned from Tom
Crow continue to resonate on
the deckplates in the fleet."'
Following his retirement in
1982, he remained an active
advocate of the Navy as a co-
chariman of the Secretary of
the Navy Retired Affairs from
1983-86, honorary board
chairman, U.S. Navy Memorial
Foundation, Navy League of
the United States, Fleet Reserve
Association, and a member on
the board of advisors to San
Diego Armed Services YMCA.
He is survived by his wife,
Carol Crow, of 39 years; his
children, Thomas Michael
Crow of Washington, Stephen
Bundy Crow of Tennessee,
Teri Laslo of Virginia, John

Admiral addresses safety, Ethos

Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert, commander, U.S. Fleet Forces
Command, congratulates a recruit following a capping cer-
emony at Recruit Training Command.


DoD


By MCSN Jessica Pounds
U.S. Fleet Forces Command Public
Affairs
The commander of U.S. Fleet
Forces Command recorded
a podcast Nov. 25 to discuss
the most recent Navy message
on motorcycle safety and also
shared his thoughts on the
newly unveiled Navy Ethos.
Adm. Jonathan Greenert's
podcast is used as a platform
to speak to the fleet and is
available for download to per-
sonal computers or mobile
devices on the USFF Web site.
When discussing the recent
motorcycle safetyNAVADMIN,
Greenert said it is impera-
tive that every Sailor read it
fi whether or not they ride a
motorcycle.
"I encourage all of our
Sailors to read the NAVADMIN,
because I think if they do, they
will understand the tone and
the meaning behind it," said
Greenert.
"In 2008, we lost 33 Sailors
due to motorcycle incidents
alone," he added. "That is
more than the number of


Sailors we lost in Operation
Iraqi Freedom and Operation
Enduring Freedom."
The message instructs mili-
tary personnel to report own-
ership of motorcycles to their
chain of command, regardless
of whether or not they drive
on base. Each command shall
then appoint a motorcycle
safety representative who will
report the command's rider
demographics to the motorcy-
cle census located on the Naval
Safety Center's Web site.
Greenert emphasized that
the bottom line is about saving
lives, which is the responsibil-
ity of leadership at all levels.
When asked about his
thoughts concerning the new
Navy Ethos statement, Greenert
explained its significance.
"The centerpieces integrity
involves discipline, our core
values, and also calls upon
leadership to fulfill their roll.
It is what we believe the attri-
butes are for each and every
one of us, civilian and Navy.
That is our declaration of who
we are."


VA combine to work


on Gulf War vets'


By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service

The Defense Department
continues to work with the
Department of Veterans
Affairs to resolve veterans'
health issues, including mala-
dies associated with the Gulf
War, a senior DoD official said
here today.
"We work very closely with
the VA for those who've sepa-
rated" from military service,
Dr. Michael E. Kilpatrick, dep-
uty director of health affairs
for force health protection
and readiness, told American
Forces Press Service and
Pentagon Channel reporters.
"We find that the No. 1 dis-
ability that veterans have is
problems with muscles, bones
and joints, ankles, knees and
lower back," Kilpatrick said.
These types of ailments, he
said, also surface as the top
health issues cited by active-
duty troops at sick call.
"So, there's a relationship
between service and those
kinds of wear-and-tear joint
problems," Kilpatrick said.
Of the nearly 700,000 U.S.
military members involved
in the 1990-1991 Gulf War,
Kilpatrick said, about 120,000
servicemembers return-
ing from deployment in the
Middle East reported a multi-

120,000 veterans received a
medical assessment and treat-
ment for their ailments, about
24,000 veterans with Gulf War
Illness-related symptoms
remain undiagnosed, said
Kilpatrick, a former Navy phy-
sician who commanded an
Army/Navy infectious disease
research unit during the Gulf
War.
Acongressionally-mandated
report titled "Gulf War Illness
and the Health of Gulf War
Veterans" was released Nov.
17 and presented to Veterans
Affairs Secretary Dr. James
Peake. The 400-plus-page
report says Gulf War Illness
is a genuine medical condi-
tion. The report also notes that
pyridostigmine bromide pills
taken by some servicemem-
bers in theater as a prophylac-
tic against nerve agents and
the use of pesticides to ward
off desert insects are possible
causes of Gulf War Illness.
Kilpatrick said he disagrees
with the report's findings


maladies


regarding causes of Gulf War
Illness, especially the alleged
role played by anti-nerve agent
pills and pesticides. Previous
tests had determined that the
pills were safe for consump-
tion by servicemembers, he
said, and there's no medical
evidence that pesticide use
was responsible for Gulf War
Illness-related maladies.
Other reports conducted on
Gulf War Illness over the years,
he noted, failed to substanti-
ate its existence or couldn't
provide medical evidence of
possible causes.
Unlike today, the U.S. mili-
tary did not conduct pre-
deployment medical screen-
ings of servicemembers dur-
ing the Gulf War, Kilpatrick
said. He suggested that some
individuals reporting Gulf War
Illness-related symptoms may
have had pre-existing medi-
cal conditions before they
deployed to the Gulf.
"I think if you take a look
at chronic fatigue syndrome,
where people are extremely
tired even after a good night's
sleep; they're lethargic, they
may have some short-term
memory loss, some muscle
pain in joints'," Kilpatrick said.
"That's part of that syndrome."
Gulf War Illness isn't a mys-
tery, Kilpatrick said, but it is
"something we don't under-
s-~ - a % asM1a-


stand, and we need to do more
work."'


The Navy Ethos is designed
to communicate a set of beliefs
appropriate and important to
the more than 400,000 military
and 180,000 civilian personnel
who share a common bond of
service in the Navy, regardless
of background, personal expe-
rience, or position.
Greenert added the impor-
tance of emphasizing civilians
in the Ethos.

"As our Ethos states, 'We are

we are a civilian or [if] we are
wearing a military uniform.
We have been working togeth-
er for years, and I think it is
important that we acknowl-
edge that."

CNO Roughead visits Chile, attends Exponaval


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

The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm.
Gary Roughead is visiting Chilean Naval per-
sonnel and bases and will participate in the
2008 International Exponaval Conference in
Chile this week.
While in Valparaiso, CNO met with his coun-


terpart, the Chilean Commander in Chief,
Adm. Rodolfo Codina and other Chilean Navy
leaders. Additionally, he toured the off-shore
Patrol Vessel (OPV) PZM-81 "Piloto Pardo,"
the Type-23 Frigate "Lynch" and observed a
"change of the guard ceremony" at the Chilean
Naval Academy.
The conference includes naval leaders from
28 countri\es throughout Europe, Asia and


Latin America. Exponaval provides a platform
for meeting and exchanging ideas and experi-
ences among the participants.
CNO said conferences like this are essential
to keeping the lines of communication open
between the U.S. Navy and its maritime part-
ners and friends around the world. CNO also
praised his Chilean Navy hosts.
"Its important for both of our navies to be


able to meet and to talk about the opportuni-
ties we have before us and for me to be able to
express my appreciation to Admiral Codina for
the great work that his Navy does in so many
places. And, we will look at ways we can con-
tinue to do more together," Roughead said.

Children can SOAR online


From Fleet and Family Readiness
Marketing, Commander, Navy
Installations Command, Millington
Detachment

Navy children now have
access to a free Web site that
provides students and parents
with educational resources.
Navy Child and Youth
Programs is bringing SOAR,
Student Online Achievement
Resources (SOAR), to Navy
families through a grant
from the Department of
Defense, in partnership with
the University of Northern
Iowa, The Princeton Review,
Houghton Mifflin and the
Military Impacted Schools
Association.
"SOAR offers tools that can
identify academic strengths
and weaknesses in math and
reading for students in grade


3 through high school," said
Chuck Clymer, Navy Child and
Youth Programs education
manager, Commander, Navy
Installations Command.
"With Navy families being
highly mobile, SOAR provides
assessments that are aligned
with state learning standards
and provides immediate feed-
back to students and parents."
According to Clymer, the
Web-based tool can be used
to instruct students in math,
reading and language arts
through interactive tutorials.
The lessons are self-guided
and have audio components
so students can work indepen-
dently or with their parents.
SOAR also provides parents
with educational resources
written specifically for them.
They can access their child's


account to see how their child
has performed on the tutorial
activities and tests. Links to
state Web sites and other edu-
cational resources can help
parents learn more about a
state or district that the fam-
ily may be moving to in the
future.
"The hope is that SOAR will
help children improve in their
academic endeavors and ease
the transition of moving from
one military installation to
another," added Clymer.
For more information on SOAR, visit
www. soarathome. org.

Ensign's remains returned


From the Office of the Assistant
Secretary of Defense, Public Affairs

The Department of Defense
POW/Missing Personnel
Office (DPMO) announced
Monday that the remains of a
U.S. serviceman, missing from
World War II, have been iden-
tified and will be returned to
his family for burial with full
military honors.
He is Ensign Robert G. Tills,
U.S. Navy, of Manitowoc,
Wis. He will be buried on
March 23, 2009, in Arlington
National Cemetery near
Washington, D.C.
Representatives from the
Navy's Mortuary Office met
with Tills' next-of-kin to
explain the recovery and iden-
tification process and to coor-
dinate interment with mili-


tary honors on behalf of the
Secretary of the Navy.
On Dec. 8, 1941, two PBY-4
Catalina Flying Boats moored
in Malalag Bay, in east-
ern Mindanao, Philippine
Commonwealth, were
strafed and sunk by Japanese
aircraft. All of the crew on
board the PBYs escaped the
aircraft with the exception of
Tills, who was seen by anoth-
er crewman to have been hit
and killed by machine gun
bullets. Tills was the first Navy
officer to be lost in defense
of the Philippine Islands. His
body was not recovered.
In October 2007, the Joint
POW/MIA Accounting
Command (JPAC) was noti-
fied by U.S. authorities in the
Philippines that aircraft wreck-
age had been discovered in


Malalag Bay. A fragment of the
wreckage bore the markings
"PBY-4."
In November 2007, a JPAC
team, along with the Joint U.S.
Military Assistance Group-
Philippines and the Philippines
Coast Guard (PCG), surveyed
the site and recovered human
remains and non-biological
evidence. Later that month,
the PCG recovered additional
remains from the site.
Among other forensic iden-
tification tools and circum-
stantial evidence, scientists
from JPAC also used dental
comparisons in the identifica-
tion of Tills' remains.
For additional information on the
Defense Department's mission to
account for missing Americans, visit
the DPMO Web site at http://www.dtic.
mil/dpmo or call (703) 699-1420.


"I have always tried to eat well and maintain a regular exercise program but there is so
much information available on fitness I wasn't sure what was correct. I wanted advice
about diet and exercise programs available on base. I contacted the I & R Specialist at the
Fleet and Family Support Center for advice. She told me about the MWR fitness center,
which offers strength and weight training, cardiovascular conditioning, and aerobic and
martial arts classes. The staff at the fitness center helped me design a fitness program that
met my personal needs and schedule. She also told me about Navy One Source. I gave
them a call and the Navy One Source consultant connected me to information that I needed
tojumpstart a nutritional and fitness program in a smart and balanced way. She saved me a
lot of time and effort!"
