ceremony
By MC3 Eric Tretter
Periscope Staff
The 1,000th Trident Patrol
Ceremony at Explosive
Handling Wharf 1 celebrated
the milestone accomplish-
ment of the nation's Trident
submarines' combined efforts
to "serve as an undetectable
launch platform for intercon-
tinental missiles" Feb. 19.
Secretary of the Navy Donald
Winter paid tribute to the USS
Wyoming (SSBN 742) Blue
Crew, which made the 1,000th
patrol, and others.
"I recognize that while we
are here to mark this momen-
tous occasion, completed by
the USS Wyoming Blue Crew,
we must also note the accom-
plishments ofthe entire Trident
community," Winter said. "This
day is about more than subma-
rines or the professional war-
riors who take them to sea. It is
about recognizing the accom-
plishments of the entire com-
munity of professionals who
make the Trident fleet viable."
Winter said many oth-
ers, including the Marines at
SWFLANT and the Trident
Refit Facility civilians, make
the Trident mission possible
through their hard work.
While many Trident subma-
rines and crews contributed
to the 1,000 patrol effort, the
USS Wyoming got credit for
the 1000th patrol. Several days
later, prestigious military lead-
ers and spokesmen used USS
Rhode Island (SSBN 740) for
the official ceremony celebra-
tion stage.
Chief of Naval Operations
Adm. Gary Roughead was a
guest speaker during the cer-


Official

Search begins for
new under-sea
missile platform
By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service
The U.S. Navy has started
the process to find a 21st-cen-
tury successor to the Trident
strategic missile submarine,
senior Defense Department
officials said while visiting
Kings Bay Feb. 20.
"We're just at the open-
ing phases right now, going
through the proper sys-
tems engineering that will
advance that particular design
approach," Secretary of the
Navy Donald C. Winter told
reporters at a news confer-
ence.
Tridents are nuclear-pow-
ered, Ohio-class submarines.
At 560 feet long and 42 feet
wide, Tridents are the largest
submarines in the U.S. Navy's
inventory. The first Trident
ballistic-missile submarine,
the USS Ohio, was commis-
sioned in 1981.
'A wide variety of options"
are being considered for the
Trident's replacement, Winter
said. However, the Navy sec-
retary expressed his belief that
the Trident system would be
replaced by another under-
sea-going platform.

speaker.
emony.
"There is no other mission
in the United States Navy that
requires greater care, greater
attention to detail, greater
exacting adherence to proce-
dure than the nuclear deter-
rent mission of our nation,"
he said. "I am proud that our
Sailors are here today, Sailors
who for decades have sailed
the open waters, those who
have enabled those Sailors
to do their job and especially
their families, who stand by
and support and encourage
and enable the Sailors, so
that we continue to be able to
uphold those high standards."
Also speaking during
the ceremony were Rear


Adm. Timothy Giardina,
Commander, Sub-marine
Group Trident; U.S. Rep. Jack
Kingston (R-Ga.); Vice Adm.
John Donnelly, Commander,
Submarine Force; Gen. Kevin
Chilton, Commander, U.S.
Strategic Command; and
Gen. James Cartwright, Vice
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff.
The day's celebrations con-
cluded with a meet-and-greet
dinner at the Trident Training
Facility. After, Winter spoke
before a packed auditorium of
sailors and opened the floor for
one-on-one questions rang-
ing from new uniform costs to
problems dealing with a surge
in enlistments and retentions.


s mull successor to Trident sub

USS Wyoming (SSBN 742) (Blue) transits the Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway to Naval Submarine
Base Kings Bay as it returned from the 1,000th Trident Strategic Deterrent Patrol, Feb. 11. The
milestone of 1,000 successful patrols by Ohio class submarines was commemorated with a
formal ceremony Feb. 19 on NSB Kings Bay.


"I do fully expect that it is
going to be a submarine,"
Winter said of the Trident's
successor.
Prior to the news conference
the Navy's top leaders and the
vice chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff were among
senior officials who attended a
ceremony that paid tribute to
the crew of the USS Wyoming
Trident strategic missile sub-
marine.
The USS Wyoming finished
its 38th patrol Feb. 11, marking
the 1000th completed patrol of


a Trident submarine since the
Ohio embarked on its initial
patrol in October 1982. The
Wyoming was commissioned
in July 1996 and began its first
patrol in August 1997.
Marine Corps Gen. James
E. Cartwright, the vice chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
echoed Winter's belief that the
Trident's replacement "will be
a submarine."
Chief of Naval Operations
Navy Adm. Gary Roughead
told reporters of the resilience
and independence exhibited


by submariners' families.
"I think the families of our
submariners are really like
submariners, a special breed;'
Roughead said. "And, my hat's
off to them, and they have my
utmost respect and support."
The U.S. military is about
to embark on its Quadrennial
Defense Review and a Nuclear
Posture Review, Cartwright
said, to determine what types
of defense capabilities will
be required to maintain U.S.
national security in the com-
ing years. The QDR is per-


formed every four years.
The threats America faces
during the 21st century
are much more diverse and
involve "a much broader spec-
trum of conflict against a much
broader number of enemies,
to include those that are not
nation-states," Cartwright told
reporters.
Gauging and evaluating
future threats and determining
what kinds of military capa-
bilities and systems will be
needed to deter them will be
debated during the QDR and
the nuclear posture review,
Cartwright said.
U.S. defense planners are
now seeking "to tailor our
deterrence for the types of
actors that were not present
during the Cold War but are
going to be present in the
future," Cartwright said.
And, "it will be the sailors
that will make the difference
in deterrence, not necessarily
just the platforms," Cartwright
said of the Navy's future nucle-
ar-deterrent mission.
The 14 nuclear-missile car-
rying Trident submarines
based here and at other Navy
ports provide more than half
of America's strategic deter-
rent capability, King's Bay offi-
cials said.
"The application of deter-
rence can be actually more

family

Rain clouds parted, and
the sun shined on Navy
Submarine Base Kings
Bay Feb. 19 for the 1,000th
Trident patrol celebration,
saluting the Sailors, their fam-
ilies, civilians and submarines
that have deterred foreign
aggression for nearly 60 years.
It's quite an accomplish-
ment. When the Secretary
of the Navy, the Chief of
Naval Operations, the
Vice Chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff and the
commanders of the U.S.
Strategic Command and the
Submarine Force all congrat-
ulate you for a job well done,
you must have done some-
thing more than all right.
The record is exemplary:
1,000 Trident cruises, no inci-
dents and the United States
is safe against the threats you
were created to neutralize.
Your mission could not have
been accomplished in any
finer fashion.
The people involved are at
the forefront of success for
this, starting with the men
in the boats. Behind these
Sailors, present and past, are
thousands more, involved in
training and support. There
are thousands more civilians
accomplishing similar roles.
Family members can take
their share of the venture's
success, too, because their
backing has been another link
in this great chain.
While the Sailors are the
lion's share of the story, the
submarines are a solid cor-
nerstone constructed for
their crew's success. I can't
think of a more amazing
piece of machinery. While
other pieces of equipment are
no less complex, the space
shuttle for example, the sheer
size and scope of the Boomer
boats truly trumps all other
accomplishments by our gov-
ernment.
General Dynamics Electric
Boat is to be lauded for this.
In this company, just as in
the crews that man the boats,
we find a cross section of
our country. Suppliers for
General Dynamics run from
Bruns Brothers Processing
Equipment in Gray, Maine,
to AP Labs in San Diego and
from Sunair Electronics in Ft.
Lauderdale, Fla., to Jorgensen
Forge Corp. in Seattle. That's
not to mention hundreds of
places in between, places like
Elkhart Brass Manufacturing
Co. in Elkhart, Ind., Electro
Plate Circuitry in Carrollton,
Texas, and Tews Technologies
in Reno, Nev. This list goes on
and on spreading through the
United States to all corners.
Congratulations Trident
Sailors. You have the greatest
equipment and the greatest
training the world has ever
seen. You can take pride in
knowing that the tireless
labor, unremitting care and
remarkable brilliance of all
America goes with you when
you go to sea.

Even today there are ways to save money


Tabitha's hours were
cut. Melanie lost her job to
workforce reduction. Tiffany
underwent a Permanent
Change of Station with her
husband and cannot find
a job. Her income is sorely
missed. Jason and Kate PCS'd.
They owned their home in
Norfolk and could not sell it
prior to PCS'ing. Now they are
paying a mortgage and rent.
How are your finances? While
our service members may
be secure in their job, how
secure is yours?
More than ever, it is impor-
tant to "pay yourself' first.
Pay myself? Yup, pay our-
selves ... as in savings. There
is a DoD supported initia-
tive you should know about.
Dana Ross, FFSC San Diego
offers, "When we encounter
hard times we can ride them
out when we have savings.
Military Saves is an effort to
change our [military] culture,
to change the cycle of debt
and start a cycle of wealth
through savings. It is about
the health of our military
families!'
Logon to www.mili-
tarysaves.org to find out more.
You can join Military Saves to
receive outstanding resources,
information and support.


You will find tools to help you
establish a spending plan,
reduce debt and build wealth.
You are encouraged to take
the pledge to make wealth
through savings and establish
savings goals. And, there are
opportunities to volunteer to
help others.
While Military Saves is sup-
ported by the Department
of Defense, it is not a DoD
driven initiative. It is volun-
tary and confidential, and
you will never, ever be asked
to purchase anything. But,
you will get support, reliable
information and strategies to
build wealth.
On last week's Internet talk
show for spouses at www.
blogtalkradio.com/nht, we


discussed building a savings.
Many listeners said their bud-
get is so tight there isn't room
for savings. Our panel tackled
this challenge with several
tips:
1. Utilize resources to
develop a spending plan.
"Fresh eyes" often find room
to adjust your spending plan.
The Fleet and Family Support
Center offers confidential
financial counseling as does
the Army Relief Society and
the Navy/Marine Corps Relief
Society. Military One Source
also offers financial planning
assistance. They are holding
two finance Webinars this
week (www.militaryone-
source.com).
2. We will receive approxi-
mately $26 per month in tax
cuts, direct it immediately to a
new savings account.
3. Use coupons and redirect
the savings to an account.
4. Cut out one Starbucks
coffee per week and you will
save $150 per year. One less
soda per week will save $100.
5. Check out your base/
installation banks (armed
forces member banks and
credit unions) for special
opportunities for high inter-
est bearing savings accounts
in partnership with Military


Saves.
6. Check out www.usaa.
com for information and the
recent Webinar, "Tax strate-
gies for now and the future."
Tia from Hawaii tells how
saving money changed their
marriage.
"We were in debt and
strapped and no savings. We
fought all the time. Darrell
said 'We are going to get
out of debt and start sav-
ing. I want to pay cash from
now on.' I laughed, but he
was serious. We started by
cutting little extras and put-
ting that money in a jar with
change from our pockets and
purses. Once a month we put
that money in our savings
account. We put our credit
cards in the freezer. I started
using coupons. We started
paying cash for everything.
Nine months later my car
broke down. For the first time
in our nine years of marriage,
we had the money in savings
to pay cash for the repairs.
Wow! I hated it at first, but
now I love having money for
necessities and luxuries in the
bank. And our marriage has
never been better!"

Dos and don'ts of pics for your husband


The question asked is,
"How do I take sexy
photos for my hus-
band?"
Ladies, I have to say that I
love the questions, and you
never cease to amaze me.
I am going to try to not
make this into a joke, but you
girls are testing me. Alrighty
then. First, let us define the
word itself.
Here is the definition from
www.dictionary.com
sex-y adjective, sex-i-er,
sex-i-est.
1. concerned predomi-
nantly or excessively with sex;
risqu6: a sexy novel
2. sexually interesting or
exciting; radiating sexuality:
the sexiest professor on cam-
pus.
3. excitingly appealing;
glamorous: a sexy new car.


[Origin: 1920-25; sex + -yl]
Isn't learning fun!?
Nowhere in this did it say
"nude" or "trashy" as the
description of sexy.
So now, lets go with num-
ber 2.
You want to be the sexiest
woman in the world for your


husband. That's great. There
are many professional estab-
lishments that take what they
call "bedroom portraits." This
is done in a professional set-
ting and does not mean you
take off your clothes. Please,
pretty, pretty, please, listen to
what I am saying. You can be
beautiful, sexy, alluring and
hot, while keeping your "lady
lumps" covered. There are
also a number of local pho-
tographers who will do these
too. Just be safe and smart
when going into a studio.
Make sure you check creden-
tials and take a friend so that
you are not alone.
Another more private way is
to use a digital camera and a
tripod. Make sure your digital
camera has a timer and wa-la
... you have instant photos. If
you have a good printer, you


can print them out yourself.
Just please don't take them
into Wal-Mart where you
are going to have to walk up
and face the people who just
developed those pictures of
you in the Dixie cup cover.
This may be damaging to your
self-confidence ... especially if
they start making suggestions
for better photos! Eeek! I sug-
gest using your own printer,
but some of you won't mind
the sudden fame at the local
photo developer.
Now, lets talk about "what
to wear." I think one of the
sexiest, cutest things is to
take that picture of you in
your husband's uniform shirt
and/or ball cap/Dixie cover/
Garrison cover. Do your hair
and make up the way he rarely

Life without Auto-Tune would be fine with me


I am blaming it on Cher.
This whole phenomenon
is her fault, at least that is
my story, and I am sticking
to it. And it is causing some
tension and arguments in my
family, filled with theatrical
artists, singers, technicians
and directors. Since I am
obviously not wrong, unless
you talk to my son, the singer/
songwriter, and I am not a
technophobe, I am saying that
a negative musical influence
of gigantic proportions has
infiltrated the performance
and production of today's
music, and it is because of
Cher.
When her music career
was languishing in 1998,
just like it justifiably is again
today, she released Believe, an
immensely irritating song that
quickly became a hit in part
due to the first verse when she
sings the phrase "I can't break
through" as though her head
is underwater and she is sing-
ing through an electric fan.
That was the first time a pub-
lic audience heard the effects
of Auto-Tune.
Auto-Tune's inventor is
Andy Hildebrand, who used


mathematical formulas called
autocorrelations to send
sound waves underground
and, by recording their travels,
accurately map potential drill
sites, saving oil companies
millions of dollars and allow-
ing Hildebrand to retire at 40.
On a whim, after he tinkered
with applying autocorrelation
to musical performance for a
few months, and Auto-Tune
was born in late 1996. Almost
immediately, studio engineers
adopted it as a trade secret to
fix flubbed notes, saving them
the expense and hassle of
having to redo sessions.
Music engineers and record


producers say that almost
every pop recording session
in the past few years features
an Auto-Tune presence.
And no singers would want
that fact known. "There's no
shame in fixing a note or two.
But we've gone far beyond
that," said Jim Anderson,
professor of the Clive Davis
department of recorded
music at New York University
and president of the Audio
Engineering Society.
Indeed. So much so that we
are now approaching a time
when Auto-Tune is like plastic
surgery for musical perfor-
mance and an embarrass-
ment when it doesn't work
correctly. Just ask Kanye West
whose recent Saturday Night
Live performance exposed
his true lack of singing ability
due to a faulty Auto-Tune box.
While watching, I wished he
would do an Ashlee Simpson
and walk off the stage to spare
us all. T-Pain, the hip-hop
artist most commonly associ-
ated with Auto-Tune, shows
no signs of slowing his assault
on good musicianship, and I
think his name is easily asso-
ciated with what I feel about


Auto-Tune's influence.
My final thought on this
phenomenon is that if Ella
Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra
didn't need it, then no one
does. These singers made
their living singing just off the
pitch, and we loved it. It was
style. It was dissonance for
our ears that made us find the
chord resolution exhilarating.
Aretha Franklin singing at the
inauguration was slightly off
pitch at one point and I found
that exciting and real, deserv-
ing Respect. When Nora Jones'
pure voice intones "Come
Away with Me" I am going,
whether she is perfectly on
pitch or not.
Don't forget to attend
Crooked Rivers' fourth annual
performance, Feeding the
Tides of Change, which runs
the next two weekends, at 7
p.m. Feb. 27, 28 and March
6, 7 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 28 and
March 7. Performances are
at 1828 Osborne St. in St.
Marys, the building previously

Church. Tickets are $10 and
will be available at the door.

"The Navy is taking the

best fighting force into the
country's best savings team,"
said Sarah Shirley, director of
Military Saves. "Military banks
and defense credit unions
have partnered with Navy at
the global and local level in
ways that show how to pro-
mote financial stability and
asset development, and at
the same time improve your
business model. We hope that
other organizations follow this

Patience

pays off
How often have you
heard the remark, "If I
only had the patience
of Job, I would be much bet-
ter off?"
Someone has said "the
measure of a person is the
height of their ideals, the
breadth of their sympathy, the
depth of their convictions and
the length of their patience.
In the day-to-day grind of a
hurried lifestyle our patience
can wear thin.
For patience to serve us
well it must be coupled with
imagination to lift it above the
boring routines of our lives.
Imagining the new things you
can do before you arrive at a
new duty station will make
the wait and transition much
easier. Patience is having an
attitude of enthusiasm for
the long haul. Such an atti-
tude prepares us to capture
those precious few "Kodak"
moments that so rarely come
to us in life.
We often allow ourselves to
become impatient at little irri-
tations, especially when our
progress seems slow. We are
then tempted to take the easy
way and become so wound
up with our little irritations
that we lose sight of our goal.
If we were to ask any suc-
cessful parent, business per-
son or leader what are the five
most important reasons for
your success, patience would
be very near the top of the list.
All things are difficult
before they are easy. If we are
patient a little longer, we will
reach our goals a little sooner.

USS Maryland plays
host to media, others
in conjunction with
Navy's celebration of
1,000th Trident cruise

By MC3 Eric Tretter
Periscope Staff
Some say life aboard the Trident
submarine hasn't change over the
last 1,000 patrols. And that is a good
thing. For those who have earned their
sea legs over much of the course of a
Trident's life, some of the most signifi-
cant changes are felt on the home front.
"My personal approach is to make
sure the crew understands their indi-
vidual jobs," said USS Maryland (SSBN
738)(Gold) Commanding Officer, Cmdr.
Jeff Grimes. "They stay because they like
what they do. They are true patriots."
A media embark aboard the Battle 'E'
winning "Fighting Mary," to demonstrate


the perseverance and accomplishments
of the Trident submarine, was held in
conjunction with the 1000th Trident
Patrol, essentially the "at sea" portion of
the celebration.
The time aboard the Maryland allowed
media and other observers significant
familiarization with the boat, including
the Trident's mission, design and lay-
out. Tours and demonstrations included
safety and security equipment, visits to
the control room and bridge, angles and
dangles exercises, Emergency Action
Measures and sonar walkthroughs, plus
interviews with the Chief of the Boat and
Commanding Officer.
In the end, it was the mentality of the
submariners who maintain and oper-
ate these 18,000 ton vessels that was
impressive. On the tug ride out to meet
Maryland, one of her enlisted Sailors
accompanied media to rejoin his crew.
MM2 Ryan Gardiner was granted the
unique opportunity of delaying his patrol
several days to accompany wife, Alison,
during the birth of the couple's second
child.


"As far as most of the Navy goes, being
aboard submarines, you can't get much
better deckplate leadership," Gardiner
said. "Even I've noticed, over the course
of the six years I've been in, the com-
mand getting more involved with family
and making sure guys are getting taken
care of at home because that is where
good submarining starts."
Gardiner couldn't say enough about
his command's support structure and
what it meant to be granted the new-
to-the-Navy fatherhood leave under the
family and medical leave act.
Chief of the Boat, ETCM Michael
Mclauchlan, was quick to state that sup-
port and involvement with family mat-
ters and the home front is the substantial
difference he has seen since originally
commissioning the Maryland more than
20 years ago.
"We thought that she might have her
baby actually earlier than her due date,
so we left him in for a week," Mclauchlan
nonchalantly said of the decision. "It
worked out good for us and it worked out
good for him too."

Naval Hospital


joins heart drive


By Marsha Childs
Naval Hospital Jacksonville
Marketing Coordinator

Naval Hospital Jacksonville
observed Red Dress Day Feb.
6 with a health fair to raise
awareness about heart dis-
ease and the risks to American
women.
Heart disease is the nation's
leading cause of death for men
and women, although many
women think it is a man's dis-
ease and fail to take it as a seri-
ous threat.
February is American Heart
Month. It is a natural fit as
we think of Valentine's Day
associated with images of the
heart. But the heart is much
more than a symbol. It is also
the vital organ that pumps
blood throughout our bodies.
Many of us tend to take our
heart for granted until it stops
working properly.
The hospital's Wellness
Center Department Head Lt.
Cmdr. Stacey Dawson, orga-
nizer of the event, believes you
are what you eat.
"Sixty-five percent of all
Americans over age 20 are
overweight or obese;'," she said.
"That's a pretty scary statistic."'
Dawson said Americans are
getting bigger from a combi-
nation of factors, including
leading inactive lifestyles, eat-
ing bigger portion sizes and


eating more processed foods
with fewer nutrients.
Eating well-balanced meals
and reducing or avoiding cer-
tain foods can lower your risk
for heart disease. A serving of
lean meat should be no larger
than the size of your comput-
er's mouse. At dinner time, fill
your plate with twice as many
fruits and vegetables as other
foods and choose fat-free dairy
products whenever possible.
Naval Hospital Jacksonville's
Public Health Director Cmdr.
Joseph McQuade warns about
the two major risks associated
with heart disease.
"Cigarette smoke contains
carbon monoxide, a toxic gas
that decreases the blood's abil-
ity to carry oxygen," he said.
"Long-term exposure at lower
levels can lead to heart disease
and brain damage."
Smoking prompts the liver to
increase the production of low
density lipoproteins that is rich
in cholesterol. Unfortunately,
it is the bad kind that forms
plaque and clogs the arter-
ies resulting in cardiovascular
disease.
McQuade also warned about
a new fad many young adults
are trying.
"Many smokers believe that
smoking flavored tobacco
through a hookah water pipe
removes the nicotine, but this
simple isn't the case. They are


Photo by Marsha Childs
Naval Hospital Jacksonville clinical nurse Frances Smith, left, showed her support on Red Dress
Day, Feb.6, by wearing red to help raise heart health awareness. Terri Botkin, right, also a reg-
istered nurse, handed out red dress pins to staff and visitors at the health fair.


subject to all the dangers a
regular smoker faces;'," he said.
Another key factor that
contributes to heart disease
is physical inactivity. Most
Americans are not physical-
ly active enough to gain any
health benefits. Activities such
as swimming, cycling, jogging,
skiing, dancing and walking all
can help your heart.
The American Heart
Association suggests healthy
adults ages 18 to 65 should
be getting at least 30 minutes


of moderately intense activ-
ity five days each week or vig-
orous aerobic activity for a
minimum of 20 minutes three
days weekly. But be sure to
check with your doctor before
starting any exercise program,
especially if you have long
term medical conditions or
physical conditions that affect
your ability to move.
Sometimes getting started
is the hardest part, but fitting
physical activities into your
daily life is easier than you


think. Start with short walks
and work up to 30 minutes.
To keep fit at the office, start
off your day by parking farther
away from the building and
walking the extra distance.
Include activity in your life
through play and recreation.
Go dancing, fly a kite or play
Frisbee. Play tennis, play bad-
minton, play anything. Just
keep moving.
By following these few sim-
ple tips, you can live a healthi-
er, fuller life.

The Submariner

Only a submariner realizes to what extent an entire ship depends
on him as an individual. To a landsman this is not
understandable, and sometimes it is even difficult for us to
comprehend. but it is so!

A submarine at sea is a different world in herself and in
consideration of the protracted and distant operations of the
submarines, the Navy must place responsibility and trust in the
hands of those who take such ships to sea.

In each submarine there are men who, in the hour of emergency or
peril at sea, can turn to each other. These men are ultimately
responsible to themselves and each other for all aspects of
operation.

This is perhaps the most difficult and demanding assignment in the
Navy. There is not an instant during his tour as a submariner that
he can escape the grasp of responsibility. His privileges, in view
of his obligations, are most ludicrously small: nevertheless it is the
spur, which has given the Navy its greatest mariners the men of
the Submarine Service.

It is a duty. which most richly deserves the proud and time-
honored title of...

Clients almost always want
to know what can happen
to the party that improperly
used the wrong social secu-
rity number. That depends on
the nature of the mistake. If
someone made a simple unin-
tentional error of mistakenly
typing a wrong number, that is
not a mistake for which some-
one will receive significant, or
possibly any, penalties.
Civil penalties for the tax-
payer who used the wrong
social security number are a
percentage of the understate-
ment of tax owed and interest
owed on the return from the
date that the return is due.
If fraud is involved, civil pen-
alties can be significant based
on the nature of the fraud.
There can even be criminal
penalties for the fraudulent
use of another's social security
number which could involve
criminal fines or imprison-
ment. But, these criminal cases
are rare and involve proving
the intentional elements of a
crime. In these cases, the IRS
consults with the Department
of Justice which would eventu-
ally pursue a criminal case.
The most frequent situa-
tion involves a dispute involv-
ing multiple tax returns filed
using the same social security
number is when divorced par-
ents have disagreements over
who can claim the children of
the marriage as a dependent.
Typically, the custodial par-
ent is the parent who will be
entitled to claim the child or


guided-missile submarine.
At the news conference,
Roughead said the Navy is
"really pleased" with the con-
verted Trident submarines,
which also carry a contingent
of special operations troops,
as well as the Tomahawks.
"That [type of] submarine
has performed extremelywell,'
Roughead said of the cruise-
missile carrying Tridents.


children as a dependent. The
non-custodial parent can only
claim the child if a four-part
test is satisfied.
That four part test is:
1, The parents are divorced
or legally separated under a
decree of divorce or separate
maintenance or are separated
under a written separation
agreement, or lived apart at
all times during the last six
months of the year;
2, The child received over
half of his or her support for
the year from the parents;
3, The child is in the cus-
tody of one or both parents for
more than half of the year;
4, And, either the custodial
parent signs a written decla-
ration that he or she will not
claim the child as a dependent
for the year and the noncusto-
dial parent attaches this writ-
ten declaration to his or her
return using IRS Form 8332
or the pages from a divorce
decree or separation agree-
ment made after 1984 in
which the decree states that
the noncustodial parent can
claim the child as a depen-
dent without regard to any
condition, such as payment of
support, the custodial parent
will not claim the child as a


dependent for the year and the
years for which the noncus-
todial parent, rather than the
custodial parent, can claim the
child as a dependent. Or, in
the case of a pre-1985 decree
of divorce, separate mainte-
nance or written separation
agreement that is still in effect
in 2008, such decree or agree-
ment states that the noncusto-
dial parent can claim the child
as a dependent, the decree or
agreement was not changed
after 1984 to say the noncusto-
dial cannot claim the child as
a dependent and the noncus-
todial parent provides at least
$600 for the child's support
during the year.
All these rules can be found
in Chapter 3 of IRS Publication
17. From the IRS perspective,
only one divorced or legally
separated parent can qualify
for any given child in any one
year. If the wrong parent files
for the child(ren), IRS, if noti-
fied of the error, will re-calcu-
late each parent's tax return
and adjust the tax liability
accordingly.

Changes made to military id cards


From Commander Navy Region
Southeast
In response to an increas-
ing awareness of the growing
need to protect the safety of
service members and their
families' identity information,
Department of Defense will
begin to eliminate the Social
Security Numbers from DoD
ID cards.
These changes will go into
effect in three phases, each
of which will be implement-
ed as ID cards are issued or
renewed.
Full SSNs will no longer
be visible on the cards and
should not be relied on for
individual authentication.
These changes are being made
by the Department to protect
the identity information of
cardholders
The removal of SSNs will
occur in three phases, all of
which will be implemented as
part of the normal card life-
cycle process:
Phase One will remove the
printed dependent SSN from
Dependent Identification and
Privilege cards (DD Forms
1173 and 1173-1) and replace
it with "XXX-XX-XXXX." At this


Bonus


levels


revised

By MC2 (AW) La Tunya
Howard
Navy Personnel Command Public
Affairs
The Navy announced revised
selective re-enlistment bonus
rates Feb. 18 in NAVADMIN
050/09.
"We adjust SRBs as a reten-
tion incentive to provide the
critical skills needed in the
fleet," said Vice Adm. Mark
Ferguson, chief of naval per-
sonnel. "We're experienc-
ing great retention in nearly
all zones and NECs (Navy
Enlisted Classifications) and
we've adjusted SRB levels in
response to this change in
behavior.
"While not every Sailor
qualifies for a SRB, all Sailors
are important to the successful
execution of Navy missions,"'
added Ferguson.
The new message approves
35 increases in SRBs, many
in the nuclear field, and 412
decreases.
The increased award levels
are effective immediately and
decreased levels are effective
March 11. These award levels
are continually reviewed and
evaluated. This NAVADMIN
supersedes NAVADMIN
240/08.
The SRB Program enhanc-
es the Navy's ability to size,
shape and stabilize the force
by using a monetary incen-
tive to encourage Sailors with
critical skills the Navy needs
most to re-enlist. SRB is a mar-
ket-based incentive allowing
the Navy to strategically adjust
award levels as retention needs
dictate.


Q and A about the new cards


From Commander Navy Region
Southeast
Question: What is chang-
ing on the card?
Answer: Social Security
Numberswillbe systematical-
ly removed from Department
of Defense ID cards. When
current cards expire, they will
be replaced with new cards
with XXX-XXX-XXXX printed
in the SSN field. The SSN will
also be removed from the bar
codes.
Q: Why are the cards
changing?
A: These changes are con-
sistent with the overall DoD
policy to reduce the use of the
SSN and reinforce the grow-
ing DoD Culture of Protection
for Personally Identifiable
Information. Consistent with
this, the planned changes are
designed to reduce the risk
of identity theft to the DoD

point, the sponsor's SSN will
remain visible on the card.
Phase Two will remove


ID card populations while
maintaining continuity of
DoD business processes.
Q: Who will be affected by
the card change?
A: All DoD ID cardholders
and those business process-
es that use the SSN from any
DoD ID card.
Q: When is the card chang-
ing?
A: Changes to ID cards will
occur when the cardholders'
expired cards are renewed.
Q: When can I get the new
card?
A: When your current card
expires.
Q: Where can I get the
card?
A: Contact your near-
est Real-time Automated
Personnel Identification
System site or go to www.
dmdc.osd.mil/rsl/owa/
home to find a location near
you. More than 1,500 RAPIDS

printed SSNs from all DoD ID
cards, with the exception of
Geneva Conventions identifi-


sites with more than 2,250
workstations worldwide
issue identification cards.
Q: What do I need to bring
with me?
A: Two forms of ID from
the OMB 1-9 document list.
One must be a federal or
state issued photo ID. Visit
www.formi9.com for more
information.
Q: Where can I use my new
ID card?
A: The new ID card can be
used at all locations where
current ID cards are accept-
ed.
Q: Will my ID be rejected
without a visible SSN?
A: No, your ID should not
be rejected without a visible
SSN; however, you may be
asked to verbally state your
SSN.

Selective Re-enlistment Bonus check with his re-enlisting officer Lt. Cmdr. Shelly Bumphus of


Norfolk, Va.
The Navy announced chang-
es to the SRB policy earlier
this year which allows Sailors
to re-enlist early for SRB as
long as they are within 90 days
prior to their expiration of
active obligated service and
within the current fiscal year
of their EAOS.
A Sailor whose SRB award
level decreases or is removed
is eligible to re-enlist in the
first 30 days following release
of a new SRB award plan only
if their hard EAOS is within
90 days of the effective date
of the message. In the case of
NAVADMIN 050/09 this date is
calculated to be May 9.
"By reducing the time frame
for SRB reenlistment, the Navy
can better project and manage
end strength while continuing
to provide incentive to Sailors
with critical skills and valu-
able experience to stay Navy,"
said Jeri Busch, head, military

From the Department of Veterans
Affairs

As the military deals with
a record number of suicides
among active-duty forces,
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
Eric K. Shinseki reminded
Veterans and their families that
the Department of Veterans
Affairs has an extensive array
of services to help Veterans in
distress.
"I urge Veterans and their
loved ones to take advantage
of our suicide-prevention pro-
gram;'," Shinseki said. "Help for
these heroes is a phone call
away."
Since July 2007, VA has oper-
ated an around-the-clock sui-
cide-prevention hotline that
has received about 100,000
calls and has been credited
with rescuing more than 2,600
people. The number for VA's
suicide prevention hotline is
(800) 273-8255.
VA operates the largest men-
tal health program in the coun-
try, with special efforts in each
of the Department's 153 medi-
cal centers and more than 750
outpatient clinics to identify


and treat at-risk patients.
In addition to operating the
suicide-prevention hotline, VA
has given all medical workers
training in suicide prevention,
created suicide prevention
coordinators at each medical
center, and given primary care
clinics responsibility for men-
tal health screening.
"We are reaching out to our
newest generation of heroes,
the Veterans of Iraq and
Afghanistan to ensure they are
aware of the services available
to them," Shinseki said.
New requests or referrals for
mental health appointments
receive a preliminary evalu-
ation within 24 hours and a
comprehensive evaluation
with 14 days. Emergency cases
are dealt with immediately.
VA operates Readjustment
Counseling Centers, common-
ly called Vet Centers, in 232
communities, where Veterans
can receive care for a wide vari-
ety of issues related to leaving
the military. Vet Center per-
sonnel are trained to identify
at-risk Veterans and to counsel
and connect them to appro-
priate VA medical services.

Why did you choose to enlist in the Navy?


Look for our roving reporter, MC1 (SW) Joe
Sabo, around Kings Bay and tell him what
you think about our question of the week.


Every Sailor has his or her own reasons for joining the
Navy.
For some it was for college money, benefits, job secu-
rity or many other reasons. I joined the Navy because at the

"I joined the Navy for the
housing benefits. I wanted
to buy a home with my Navy
benefits. I also wanted to use

ther my education. It is also
a steady paycheck that I can
use to pay off my debt and
increase my quality of life."

wanted to serve my country

benefits to help support him. I
feel pride every time I put my
uniform on. The Navy is the
best decision I ever made."


time I was in need of direction in my life I had no direction. I
was spinning my wheels and college wasn't going well. The job
market was pretty woeful. So, one day my dad dropped me off
at the recruiter and came back an hour later.

"I joined the Navy to follow

joined to experience life. I
wanted to live life on my own

has provided me that oppor-

The Montgomery G.I. Bill was
another factor for me joining.
I wanted to improve myself
and become a better person.
The military is an excellent
opportunity for me to grow as
a person."


The recruiter talked it up pretty good. And I bought off on it
and enlisted in the Navy. And I have grown from my Navy expe-
rience, and I am glad to have served in the Navy.
Here's what others think.

Trident Training Facility


prepares submariners


By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service
The officers and enlisted
members who serve aboard
the U.S. Navy's Trident strate-
gic missile and guided-missile
submarines are elite sailors
requiring specialized training
and skills.
Fresh-faced sailors just out
of basic submarine school at
Groton, Conn., as well as "old
salts" who've notched several
Trident patrols are taught and
re-taught those skills at the
Trident Training Facility here,
said Navy Chief Petty Officer
Mark Rector, a spokesman for
the facility.
Tridents are nuclear-pow-
ered, Ohio-class submarines,
Rector said. At 560 feet long
and 42 feet wide, Tridents are
the largest submarines in the
U.S. Navy's inventory.
The $1.2 billion training
facility here was opened in
1987. At more than a half-mil-
lion square feet, Rector said, it
is the second-largest building
in the Defense Department,
after the Pentagon.
"We have everything here,
from a 'virtual' nuclear-reactor
control room... allthewayupto
simulated missile tubes, where
we can simulate the launching
of missiles," Rector said.
The King's Bay facility also
teaches sailors how to drive,
or pilot, Trident submarines,
Rector said, as well as how to
extinguish shipboard fires and
control flooding. The facility's
equipment, he said, is "iden-
tical to what they would use
aboard their submarine."
The duration of courses
offered at King's Bay ranges
from a few hours to up to two
years for the assistant naviga-
tor's course, Rector said.
Trident submarines have
two crews, called Blue and
Gold, which rotate patrols. One
crew is at sea for 60 to 90 days,
while the other trains ashore.
In this way, the vessels can be
employed at sea 70 percent of
the time, when not undergo-
ing scheduled maintenance in
port, Rector explained.
Trident sailors returning
from sea duty take refresher
training that's used to re-cer-
tify their skills before they
embark on their next patrol,
Rector said.
At the end of their re-certifi-
cation training, the sailors "are
100-percent ready to take that
submarine at sea, at 100-per-
cent operational capability,;'
Rector said. Attention to detail
"is everything" in the Navy's
submarine fleet, he added.
"If you make a mistake while
out to sea, you risk killing a
shipmate or losing your sub-
marine," Rector explained.
"None of those [possibili-
ties] are acceptable; we have
to make sure that we do not
make mistakes."
A Trident's crew consists of
about 160 officers and enlisted
sailors. The original ballis-
tic missile versions are nick-
named "Boomers;'," and they
feature the designator SSBN.
The Boomers are capable of
carrying as many as 24 Trident
II D-5 nuclear missiles. The
vessel also carries Mark-48
torpedoes.
Inside the training facility's
bridge operations room, Navy
Lt. j.g. Walter McDuffie, the
assistant operations officer
assigned to the Trident bal-
listic-missile submarine USS
Maryland's "Blue" crew, used
a computerized training pro-
gram to "direct" his surfaced
submarine. The bridge is
the outside observation post
located atop a submarine's
uppermost structure, called
the sail.
Some training, Rector noted,
can be performed only at sea.
Meanwhile, with his virtu-
al glasses in place, McDuffie
"watched" his submarine
cruising along the water's sur-
face and communicated his
observations to shipmates in
the control room below.
The computerized training
program, McDuffie said, pro-
vides "a great experience, with-


out the actual consequences
that could happen out in the
real world."
The U.S. government agreed
to reduce the number of its

Education a key Navy initiative


From the Center for Personal and
Professional Development

The Navy's efforts to attract,
recruit and retain the best and
brightest men and women
for their workforce ranks high
among its strategic initiatives,
and key among those is edu-
cation.
Sailors with college degrees
from accredited institutions
were eligible, startinginAugust
2008, to submit their academic
transcripts to the Navy College
Office for an increase in their
advancement points.
"Navy leaders have long rec-
ognized that a strong educa-
tional foundation enhances a
Sailor's technical skills, lead-
ership traits, critical thinking
skills and their ability to adapt
and overcome the ever-pres-
ent challenges associated
with working in the dynamic
maritime environment," said
Master Chief (SW) Gretchen
Boals, Command Master Chief
at the Center for Personal and
Professional Development.
The recent changes in
advancement policy sets the
tone for Sailors to Stay Navy
and continue their education
In November 2007, the
Chief of Naval Personnel
released Naval Administration
(NAVADMIN) message 301/07,
which stated enlisted sailors
preparing for advancement
to pay grades E-4 through E-
6 now will be awarded two
points for an accredited asso-
ciate's degree and four points
for an accredited baccalaure-
ate degree or higher.
Sailors preparing for
advancement to Chief Petty
Officer also are eligible to

a six-month deployment aboard the guided-missile destroyer
USS Laboon (DDG 58). Retention is a key Navy priority.


receive advancement points
based on the same point struc-
ture as E-4 to E-6 pay grades,
while Sailors preparing for E-7
through E-9 selection boards
will be given favorable con-
sideration for their academic
degrees based on the recent
updates to selection board
guidelines.
Both prior service and in-
service degrees are recog-
nized, and similar to awards,
academic degrees count for
multiple advancement cycles.
During the first cycle to


award education points,
September 2008, Navy enlist-
ed force stabilization officials
noted a slightly larger impact
during the advancement cycle
than they had anticipated. Of
the 89,210 test takers, 2,264
reported a post-secondary
degree. The tally surpassed the
projected number of degrees
reported for the advancement
cycle by 731.
There were 21,663 Sailors
advanced during the fall 2008
cycle, and from that number,
766 held a college degree. Of


those with degrees, 33.8 per-
cent advanced, 33.2 percent
would have advanced regard-
less of education points, and
8 percent would not have
advanced if it were not for
education points.
"Here at CPPD, we support
the learning and development
needs of all Sailors, which is
why we are thrilled that E3-E5
Sailors are now being recog-
nized and promoted for both
their professional and aca-
demic successes," Boals said.
"CPPD is committed to
offering academic sup-
port in the format that best
meets the needs of the Sailor
through counseling and aca-
demic advisement, the Navy's
College Program for Afloat
College Education Tuition
Assistance and the College
Level Examination Program,
among others. Before even
considering an academic
program, every Sailor's first
stop must be their local Navy
College Office, Boals said.
CPPD and the Navy College
Program are responsible for a
variety of education programs,
including the administration
of the 52 Navy College offic-
es located around the world,
as well as the operations of
the Navy College Program
for Afloat College Education,
Academic Skills Testing,
and United States Military
Apprenticeship Program.
Sailors interested in starting
on a degree or taking advan-
tage of any of these educa-
tional opportunities can start
by visiting their local Navy
College Office or the Navy

Gates wants end to 'stop-loss' program


By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service

Putting an end to the mili-
tary's so-called "stop-loss" pro-
gram is a priority for Defense
Secretary Robert M. Gates, a
senior official in Washington,
D.C. said Feb. 23.
The stop-loss program is the
involuntary extension of active
duty beyond a servicemem-
ber's expiration of term of ser-
vice, or ETS.
The program is in place


to make sure units deploy
with all positions filled.
Servicemembers with an ETS
or retirement date that would
occur while a unit is deployed
can be "stop-lossed" or
extended until the end of
the deployment.
This is an issue that the ser-
vices have had to deal with
since the beginning of the
conflicts in Afghanistan and
Iraq, Pentagon spokesman
Bryan Whitman said.
Currently, only the Army


is using the provision, with
about 13,200 soldiers involun-
tarily extended.
"The goal here ... is to move
as rapidly as possible to end
stop-loss altogether," Whitman
said. "It is the secretary's
desire to take a comprehen-
sive approach to ending this,
which includes using the addi-
tional authorization Congress
has given the department to
be able to grant a special pay to
those soldiers that are affected
by stop-loss."


The congressional initiative
funds a special pay of $500 per
month to stop-lossed service-
members.
"The department appreci-
ates the authority as well as the
flexibility to compensate ser-
vicemembers that are affected
by stop-loss," Whitman said.
"But the goal here is to end
stop-loss altogether as rapidly
as possible."
Army officials will brief
Gates on the program later
this week, he said.

Post-deployment


health studied


From Navy Personnel Command
Public Affairs

Commands may now
access the Deployment
Health Assessment Program
instruction online the Navy
announced Feb. 18.
OPNAVINST6100.3. cements
the requirements for periodic
assessments prior to and after
deployments.
"When leadership takes an
active role in making sure that
the assessments take place
then we know we are really
taking care of Sailors physi-
cal and emotional needs,"
said Fleet Master Chief Mike
McCalip, Office of the Chief of
Naval Personnel.
"Sometimes Sailors in a
hurry to get demobilized or
back to their pre-IA (indi-
vidual augmentee) job may
not spend the time on the
post-deployment assessment
that they should and issues
arise months after a deploy-
ment. The post-deployment
re-assessment (PDHRA) is
designed to pick up those
issues," he added.
Sailors frequently rate their


overall general health worse
three to six months after
returning than they did imme-
diately upon return. The pro-
cess is designed to identify
stress injuries and other health
concerns that require further
assessment or treatment.
Sailors are required to
undergo a Pre-deployment
Health Assessment form DD
2795 no earlier than 60 days
prior to the expected deploy-
ment date. Then when the
Sailor returns from deploy-
ment a Post-Deployment
Assessment, form DD 2796
should be completed as close
to their homecoming date as
possible, not earlier than 30
days before the expected rede-
ployment.
Reserve Sailors should com-
plete the Post-DHA before
being released from active
duty. The PDHRA form DD
2900 should be completed
between 90 and 180 days after
return from deployment.

assessments and reassessments review

Violence in Iraq


hits six-year low


By John J. Kruzel
American Forces Press Service

Violent attacks in Iraq are
at their lowest levels since
August 2003, a U.S. command-
er in Iraq said Feb. 23.
Army Maj. Gen. David
Perkins, director for strategic
effects at Multinational Force
Iraq, told reporters in Baghdad
the downtickin violence marks
a 90-percent decrease since
the surge of U.S. troops began
in 2007.
Perkins added that on Feb.
20, no Iraqi civilianswere killed
or even targeted in attacks.
"This is a very significant
event, and we are seeing
more and more days like that
throughout Iraq," he said.
Contributing to the
improved security are the
growing Iraqi security forces,
which have increased the size
of their ranks from 463,000 last
year to 618,000 now, a 25-per-
cent boost.
"It's not only an increase in
the size and numbers, but the
capability such as planning,
orchestrating these very com-
plicated operations, and then
leading throughout the coun-
try of Iraq," Perkins said.
He added that Iraqi forces
led and planned security for
the countrywide provincial
elections last month, in which
some 7 million Iraqis partici-
pated in balloting that featured
14,000 registered candidates.
"On election day this year,
there were no attacks which
resulted in any disruption to
any of the voting that went on,"
Perkins said. "This is in com-
parison to the last national
election period in 2005, where
we had hundreds of attacks on
election day, with 44 deaths."
Election results are being
widely accepted by victors and
vanquished alike, he said.
"If you take a look at emerg-
ing democracies, historically,
it is generally the second elec-
cooo


tion that is sometimes more
difficult than the first elec-
tion," the general said. "By
the time the second election
comes, those who may have to
lose power or give up power
are not necessarily as excited
about doing that.
"But the fact that we've had
this second election and a very
large number of people par-
ticipating, both as candidates
and as voters," he continued,
"shows the enthusiasm that
Iraqis have for the democratic
process here in Iraq."
The downturn in violence
comes as U.S. forces begin
transferring a greater share of
power to Iraqi forces in keep-
ing with the status-of-forces
agreement that became effec-
tive Jan. 1.
The agreement between
Washington and Baghdad
stipulates that American com-
bat forces pull back from cities
and villages to major bases by
June 30.
"There is no doubt that we
willbe out of the cities by June,
and we are working this day
by day," Perkins said. "And you
can see many of these facilities
we have already transferred,
as well as the upcoming ones,
are part of this plan to move
out of the cities."

Anchored But Not
Away helps spouses
Being a military spouse is
a unique experience filled
with joys and heartaches that
many people will never know
or understand. The pride that
you have as a military spouse
is weighed against the pain of
separation. Deployments can
be tough for many military
families, which is what sparked
a new workshop for spouses of
deployed or deployable ser-
vice members at the Fleet and
Family Support Center. The
class, Anchored But Not Away
... A Spouse's Deployment
Survival Guide, will address
the difficulties and expecta-
tions that many spouses and
their families experience
during the deployment pro-
cess. Some of the areas that
will be discussed during the
class will include managing
life's challenges, emotional
cycles of deployment, prepa-
ration tips, communication
and homecoming, to name a
few. Additionally, the class will
provide information regarding
the resources that are available
through military and commu-
nity channels. Pre-registration
is required. The workshop is
scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon
March 4. For more informa-
tion call 573-4222.

14 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, February 26, 2009


Department of Defense photo by R. D. Ward
Vice Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Patrick M. Walsh holds a press briefing at the Pentagon
on Feb. 23 to talk about his findings concerning the compliance of the detention facilities at
Guantanamo Naval Base, Cuba.


Gitmo found in compliance


By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
The detention facilities at
Naval Station Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba, meet all standards
of humane treatment and are
in compliance with Common
Article 3 of the Geneva
Conventions, the vice chief of
naval operations said Feb. 23.
Navy Adm. Patrick M.
Walsh was chosen by Defense
Secretary Robert M. Gates to
head a team to review and
report on the facilities at
Guantanamo as part of an
executive order President
Barack Obama issued Jan. 22.
The review team conducted
more than 100 interviews with
Joint Task Force Guantanamo
personnel over 13 days
of investigation in Cuba .
The team conducted mul-
tiple announced and unan-
nounced inspections of all
camps, reviewed paperwork
and observed many aspects of
daily operations, Walsh said.
"Collectively, we talked
to a number of detainees
and observed daily activi-
ties, including [use of feed-
ing tubes] and interrogations,"
Walsh said during a Pentagon


news conference.
The team looked at shel-
ter, clothing, food and water,
practice of religion, recre-
ation, the detainee discipline
system, protections against
violence, sensory deprivation
and humiliation, human-to-
human contact, health care,
interrogation and access to
attorneys and outside enti-
ties. Common Article 3 of the
Geneva Convention prohibits
violence to life and person,
taking of hostages, outrages
upon personal dignity and
passing of sentences without
judgment pronounced by a
regularly constituted court.
"From our review, it was
apparent that the chain of com-
mandresponsibleforthe deten-
tion mission at Guantanamo
consistently seeks to go beyond
the minimum standard in com-
plying with Common Article 3,"
he said. "We found that the
chain of command endeav-
ors to enhance conditions in
a manner as humane as pos-
sible, consistent with security
concerns."
The team also recommend-
ed ways to improve conditions
at the detention facilities.
While Obama wants the facil-


ity closed by next year, until
it does close, conditions must
meet all humane standards,
Walsh said.
"We do not intend to sug-
gest that these recommenda-
tions are items that the depart-
ment must pursue to satisfy
Common Article 3" he said.
"Rather, they are items that
we view as consistent with the
approach of the chain of com-
mand to continually enhance
conditions of detention'."
Socialization, or interaction
among detainees, is important
for the detainees because of
the length of time they have
been detained, he said. In cer-
tain camps, more socialization
is needed. The team called
for more "human-to-human
contact, recreation opportu-
nities with several detainees
together, intellectual stimu-
lation and group prayer," the
admiral said.
The review team recom-
mendedbetter health care, and
the task force leaders appreci-
ate the role health care plays at
the facility, Walsh said.
Finally, as long as the facility
remains open, it must have the
requisite resources, the admi-
ral told reporters.


Help for


suicidal


a priority

From Navy Personnel Command
Public Affairs
The chief of naval personnel
spoke to Sailors on the impor-
tance of suicide prevention,
Feb. 11 during a visit to Navy
Personnel Command.
"It is an all-hands responsi-
bility for shipmates to recog-
nize when someone may be in
distress" said Vice Adm. Mark
Ferguson, chief of naval per-
sonnel. "It is the responsibil-
ity of leadership to ensure the
programs are in place and that
Sailors have access to them.
It is the responsibility of chief
petty officers and leaders on
the deck plate to recognize
when Sailors are under stress
and to ensure they have access
to treatment programs.
"Suicide is generally a
response to stress to a per-
son feeling hopeless or dis-
tressed with their personal
situation. It is a tragedy and
one that can be prevented."
Ferguson added that Sailors
may be able to help prevent
suicide if they "ACT."
"If people remember to ACT
- ask, care, treat they will
be on the right path," said Lt.
Cmdr. Bonnie Chavez, behav-
ioral health program manager
for the Navy. Chavez recently
introduced a series of suicide
prevention posters designed
by Sailors to help teach Sailors
to ACT.
"Don'tbe afraid to ask some-
one if they are thinking of tak-
ing their own life," Chavez said.
"Care enough to let the person
know that suicidal feelings are
temporary and that depres-

sion can be treated and then
get help. Treat take them to
an emergency room or walk in
clinic, don't leave them alone,
take action, remove means,
such as guns, stockpiled pills,
ropes and sharp objects."
Suicide prevention edu-
cation is among the 12 gen-
eral military training top-
ics required for all hands in
2009. The new course titled
Introduction to the Stress
Response Continuum and
Suicide Awareness is available
at Navy Knowledge Online.
Commands can find more
information about suicide pre-


ventionin OPNAVINST 1720.4,
Suicide Prevention Program,
which provides guidance for
commanding officers and
senior enlisted leadership on
suicide prevention training.
Early intervention is vital to
suicide prevention efforts at
all levels of the Navy. Chavez
pointed out that most people
give some warning of their
suicidal intentions to a friend
or family member and that
all suicide threats seriously
should be taken seriously.

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, February 26, 2009 17


Afghanistan commander welcomes more forces


By Army Staff Sgt. Michael
J. Carden
American Forces Press Service

The commander of NATO
and U.S. forces in Afghanistan
said Feb. 19 that while he's
pleased with President Barack
Obama's authorization to
send 17,000 more troops to
Afghanistan, tough times are
ahead.
Army Gen. David D.
McKiernan, commander of
NATO's International Security
Assistance Force and U.S.
Forces Afghanistan, said at a
Pentagon news conference
that the reinforcement fulfills
about two-thirds of his request
for additional forces and will
provide enough manpower to
sustain security through the
summer.
"Those forces, of course, are
aimed at being operational by
the highest part of the insur-
gent fighting season this sum-
mer, and to be in place and
operational before the pro-
jected elections in August of
2009," McKiernan said.
The additional forces also
are needed "to give us a secu-
rity foundation that will allow
the other lines of operations
in governance and socioeco-
nomic progress to take place

U.S. Forces Afghanistan, delivers an update briefing to the Pentagon press corps on Feb. 18.


and change what I've called
a stalemate in the south," the
general said.
The additional forces will
focus their efforts in the south
and along Afghanistan's bor-
der with Pakistan to combat


insurgents. However, the lack
of a strong central government
for three decades, combined
with high illiteracy and pover-
ty rates and a resilient enemy,
doesn't offer a quick solution
for Afghanistan, McKiernan


said.
"Even with the additional
forces, I have to tell you that
2009 is going to be a tough
year," he said. "While this will
give us a security foundation,
we certainly need additional


contributions- civilian capac-
ity-building programs that will
enable people in Afghanistan
to feel hope and to develop
their abilities to take the lead
for their governance."
About 38,000 U.S. troops are
inAfghanistan, includingabout
6,000 reinforcements from the
10th Mountain Division's 3rd
Brigade Combat Team and a
contingent of Marines who
arrived last month. Another
19,000 troops from 42 other
countries make up the balance
of allied efforts there.
The 17,000 additional
troops are made up primar-
ily of soldiers from the 2nd
Infantry Division's 5th Stryker
Brigade Combat Team based
at Fort Lewis, Wash., and
Marines from the 2nd Marine
Expeditionary Brigade at
Camp Lejeune, N.C.
The incoming troops, as
well as those currently in
Afghanistan, can expect a
"dual mission," McKiernan
said, noting he asked for a
Marine expeditionary brigade
and an Army Stryker brigade
because of their versatility. He
wanted units with counterin-
surgency capabilities that also
could provide security for the
population and partner with
Afghan forces, he explained,


adding that Afghan border and
national police forces need
trainers and organizers, which
the additional troops also will
provide.
"[The additional units] are
battle-space owners conduct-
ing counterinsurgency opera-
tions, but they're also develop-
ing capacity and capability in
the Afghan policing forces'," he
said. "Training and mentor-
ing ... will be part of the units'
mission."
When McKiernan took
command in Afghanistan less
than a year ago, he requested
30,000 additional forces. Even
after the increased U.S. pres-
ence takes hold, he still will
need 10,000 to 12,000 more,
whether they come from allies
in NATO or the United States,
he said.
He told reporters he prob-
ably will not ask for any more
troops beyond that, but he
stressed that the additional
forces are not a short-term
proposition.
"This is not a temporary
force uplift. ... It's going to
need to be sustained for some
period of time," he said. "I
can't give an exact number of
years that it would be, but I'm
trying to look out for the next
three to four or five years."


NATO meeting encouraging


By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service


Defense Secretary Robert M.
Gates said he was encouraged
by discussions in Poland last
week with NATO allies on the
way forward in Afghanistan.
"There was a lot of focus on
the run-up to the Afghan elec-
tion in August and the impor-
tance of added security," Gates
told traveling and international
press following the beginning
of the NATO defense ministers
meeting.
At the meeting, Germany
committed forces to help with
security in Afghanistan as the
election approaches.
"We welcome the commit-
ment of additional German
forces for the upcomingAfghan
national elections," Pentagon
Press Secretary Geoff Morrell
said. "For those contests to be
credible, voter turnout must
be robust and representative,
and improving the security
situation is the key to mak-
ing that happen. We encour-
age other nations to do as we
and the Germans have now
done and deploy more troops
before Afghans go to the polls
later this year."
The need for more resources


on the civilian side of opera-
tions in Afghanistan also was
discussed.
The ministers heard from
Afghan Defense MinisterAb dul
Rahim Wardak and United
Nations Special Representative
for Afghanistan Kai Eide. Gates
said it was important to hear
from the Afghans, "because
it's fundamentally their fight,
and we are helping them. The
more we see them in the lead,
the better it is."
Gates said he spoke with
leaders about the review of
U.S. Afghan policy that's under
way and stressed the inclu-
siveness of that strategy.
"There will be Afghan and
Pakistani teams coming to the
U.S. to work with us on it,"
he said. Richard Holbrooke,
President Barack Obama's
special envoy to Afghanistan
and Pakistan, will meet with
NATO allies in Brussels.
Obama's recent decision to
send more U.S. troops to the
country will put resources in
place to implement the strate-
gy. In the past, coalition troops
have not had the manpower to
hold areas after clearing out
the Taliban and affiliated ter-
ror groups, Gates said.
"What we are doing with this


troop increase ... is to have a
more or less continuing pres-
ence with our Afghan partners
... to bring security to the pop-
ulation;' he said.
Safe havens in Pakistan have
contributed to the increase in
violence in Afghanistan. Gates
praised the Pakistani military
and Frontier Corps, a feder-
al paramilitary force, for re-
entering the fray in the tribal
areas. The secretary said all of
the ministers view the Afghan
National Army and Afghan
National Police as the institu-
tions that will lead the fight.
"Particularly with respect to
the police, more than in the
past, there was an expression
of the importance of help-
ing to train and expand the
police," Gates said.
The secretary stressed the
importance of civilian con-
tributions to Afghanistan.
Governance is key, and the
secretary wants aid to local,
district and provincial govern-
ments as well as the national
government.
"The last thing the Afghans
want is for us in some way
to re-create warlords," he said.
"The question is, How can you
engage the local population in
defense?"


Program helps save


$48 million in fuel


From Naval Sea Systems Command
Office of Corporate Communications

NavalSeaSystemsCommand
announced Feb. 18 that Navy
ships realized a record of more
than $48 million in fuel cost
avoidance during the first
quarter of fiscal year 2009.
"This is the highest cost
avoidance achieved in a quar-
ter since the i-ENCON pro-
gram was implemented fleet-
wide in fiscal year 1999, said
NAVSEA incentivized Energy
ConservationProgramManager
Hasan Pehlivan. "It also fol-
lows the program's record cost
avoidance of more than $136
million for ship fuel conserva-
tion in fiscal year 2008."
The i-ENCON program is
one of two initiatives com-
prising the Navy's Energy
Conservation Program, spear-
headed by NAVSEA's Marine
Engineering team. Committed
to reducing ships' energy con-
sumption by 10 percent each
year, i-ENCON is a "Meet
the Fleet" initiative. Program
sponsors conduct meetings
with ship operators to review
specific fuel-saving proce-
dures and recommend quar-
terly awards for ships with the
most fuel-efficient operations.
Saving fuel saves money.
These efforts increase fleet
readiness by enabling Sailors
at sea to train or deploy lon-
ger while spending the same
amount of money on fuel.
One of the ways NAVSEA's
i-ENCON measures fuel and
cost avoidance is through
underburn, the reported fuel
rate for the quarter that's
below the ship class' average


burn rate.
"The underburn was 20.10
percent of the total first quarter
fuel consumption (1,063,523
barrels), which exceeded the
ENCON goal of 10 percent by
a wide margin;' said Pehlivan.
"This unprecedented 20.10
percent underburn translates
to a cost avoidance of 213,821
barrels, or $31.76 million for
Atlantic Fleet ships. In addi-
tion, Pacific Fleet cost avoid-
ance of 113,717 barrels, or
$16.70 million resulted in a
best quarter ever.":'
This unprecedented fleet
performance may be partially
attributable to ships receiv-
ing $2 million in the fourth
quarter of fiscal year 2008 by
Commander, Naval Surface
Forces, Pehlivan said.
Pehlivan said i-ENCON
rewards leading fuel conserv-
ers among underway surface
ships with special recogni-
tion and cash incentives up
to $67,000. In FY 2008, 148
ships received incentive cash
awards. The money is routed
to each commanding officer's
discretionary funds, which are
often used to buy items like
damage control gear or to aug-
ment the ship's welfare and
recreation programs.
"The incentives are very
important to i-ENCON's suc-
cess," Pehlivan said. "It's a vol-
untary program that requires
real commitment from ships'
commanding officers, chief
engineers and main propul-
sion assistants. I receive calls
and e-mails from ships every
day wanting to know how they
can participate and improve
their fuel performance'."
