Gates tabs Mullen, Cartwright for second terms


Defense boss recommends

president give Joint Chiefs

chair, vice chair another tour
By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates announced March 18 his
recommendations that President Barack Obama renominate
Navy Adm. Mike Mullen and Marine Gen. James E. Cartwright as
the chairman and vice chairman, respectively, of the Joint Chiefs


of Staff for a second two-year term.
Gates also announced he has recommended new command-
ers for U.S. Pacific Command, U.S. European Command and U.S.
Southern Command.
The secretary recommended Navy Adm. Robert F. Willard to
become commander of Pacom, succeeding Navy Adm. Timothy
J. Keating. Willard is commander of the Navy's Pacific Fleet.
Gates also recommended the commander of U.S. Southern
Command, Navy Adm. James G. Stavridis, to be the commander
of U.S. European Command, succeeding Army Gen. Bantz J.
Craddock.
If confirmed, Stavridis would be the first naval officer to hold
the command in Europe. The commander of U.S. European
Command also is the NATO supreme allied commander for


Europe, and he would have overall responsibility for the NATO
effort in Afghanistan.
The secretary also has recommended Air Force Lt. Gen.
Douglas Frazer to succeed Stavridis at U.S. Southern Command.
Frazer is the deputy commander at U.S. Pacific Command, and if
confirmed, would be the first Air Force leader of Southcom.
All of these moves require Senate confirmation.
"If confirmed, these officers would be taking up their com-
mands over the next several months;'," Gates said at a news con-
ference here today. "I would like to thank the outgoing combat-
ant commanders ... for their decades of dedicated service."
The secretary said the officers he is recommending have the
mix of "military acumen, strategic vision and diplomatic and
interagency skill that their posts require."


Stimulus to fund


Defense projects


Ripped! Navy photos by MC3 Eric Tretter
Strong woman Kristine Henigman entertained and motivated youngsters and adults at the Kings Bay Youth Center by break-
ing bricks, tearing in half a Jacksonville White Pages phone book and helping kids find true value in who they are. The
March 20 afternoon program featured several skits in which Henigman's inspirational message was to find the positives in
every situation. Along with being a Morale, Welfare and Recreation volunteer, Henigman also is pursuing a Spanish major
and preparing for upcoming national fitness competitions in Chicago and New York.

Jacksonville tri-base
fair draws more than
1,000 job-seekers

By MC1 (SW) Joe Sabo
Periscope staff
Military, retired military
and military spouses came
in their best business attire
to meet prospective employ-
ers as the Fleet and Family
Support Center held a Tri-
base job fair March 18 at the
Morocco Shrine Auditorium
in Jacksonville.
The FFSCs at Kings Bay,
Mayport and Naval Air Station
Jacksonville offered network-
ing with more than 90 employ-
ers, with many taking resumes
and interviewing candidates.
Prospective employers and
job-seekers alike benefitted.
"People are still hiring. I
get job listings everyday from
companies that are hiring" said
Education Services Facilitator,
Naval Station Mayport, Pam


Support Facility are scheduled
for projects.
The two biggest projects are
hospitals at Camp Pendleton,
Calif., and Fort Hood, Texas,
Defense officials said.
The projects are fund-
ed through the American
Recovery and Reinvestment
Act, which President Barack
Obama signed into law
last month. The Defense
Department received $7.4 bil-
lion under the law, with $5.9
billion going for construction
and repair projects.
The funds are to be spent at
Defense Department facilities
in all 50 states, the District of
Columbia, Guam and Puerto
Rico. The primary purpose of
these funds is to create jobs
and stimulate economic activ-
ity, officials said.

Ottesen. "But the job market
has become more competi-
tive. The same jobs are open,
but there are more people who
are looking for a job. I screen
for companies that meet the
skill set that people who have
military experience possess."
For many job seekers, serv-
ing in the military has been
their sole career. That can be a
liability for some and a benefit
for others. Sailors have a struc-
tured routine regarding work,
advancements and transfers.
But some don't gain the nec-
essary skills to sell themselves,
with little or no experience fill-
ing out a job application or
interviewing.
To help remedy this, FFSC
offers courses geared to help
military members and their
spouses prepare and present
themselves at event such as
a job fair. Classes include the
30 Second Interview, which
teaches people to sell them-

arrived in port Bahrain March 21.
USS Hartford (SSN 768) and USS
New Orleans (LPD 18) arrived at
Mina Salman pier to further assess
and evaluate the damage that
resulted from their collision at sea.
The incident remains under
investigation.
Overall damage to both ships is
being evaluated.
The propulsion plant of the sub-
marine was unaffected by this col-


tured fuel tank, which resulted in a

gallons of diesel fuel marine in the
Strait of Hormuz.
Aerial searches of the area where
the fuel spill occurred were con-
ducted and revealed no indica-
tion of any remaining fuel on the
ocean's surface.
The U.S. 5th Fleet has been work-

Oceanographic Office to determine
refined search areas, based on cur-

Additional searches were flown
by U.S. Navy aircraft today and

Here's a switch: I'm the one deploying


Yes, you read that right, I
am deploying. Well, sort
of. I have been invited
to be the first spouse-embed
blogger. Aside from the brag-
ging rights as the first spouse
embed, I am very excited, and
honored to ride the ship, see
the mission and write, blog
and broadcast my experience
from the ship.
I will be sailing on the
USNS Comfort (www.comfort.
navy.mil), the Navy's east
coast based hospital ship.
The Comfort is deploying as
part of Continuing Promise
2009 (www.projecthope.org.)
Continuing Promise 2009
is a public-private venture
with the Navy, inter-agency
and other non-governmen-
tal organizations to provide
health care, health education
and humanitarian assistance
throughout Latin America.
Volunteer nurses, nurse edu-
cators, nurse practitioners,
midwives, doctors, even vet-
erinarians will live and work
on board the USNS Comfort.


Some teams will work
onshore at the port countries
during the deployment. The
mission is to demonstrate,
through humanitarian assis-
tance and medical services,
U.S. commitment and sup-
port to Latin America and the
region of the Caribbean.
I will be joining the ship
at one of its humanitarian
stops, riding the ship to its
next humanitarian port call
and observing the mission for
several days before returning


to the United States. I will be
on board the USNS Comfort a
total of eight days. During my
'deployment' I will attempt
a Personal Qualification
Standard. At present the plan
is to attempt to qualify as a
line handler. Wish me luckld
I will be blogging from the
ship daily and hope to give
you a new perspective on
what our Sailors experience
and do on board. Look for
my videos and podcasts. I'll
be interviewing Continuing
Promise '09 volunteers and
ship's company throughout
my stay.
While we are talking about
deployments, this is the first
of two embed opportunities
that have been presented to
me. Later this summer I hope
to be a spouse-embed blog-
ger on another ship that cur-
rently is involved in the multi-
national, anti-piracy efforts
off the coast of Africa. While I
do not have all the details on
this opportunity at this time,
I must say I am thrilled at the

possibility to ride a 'battle-
ship' to tell the story of the
ship, its mission and most
important, its Sailors.
I am not deploying for
a few weeks, but I want to
solicit from you, my readers
and fellow spouses, the ques-
tions you have about ship life
- what you are curious to
learn and hope to hear from
me during this opportunity
to see these missions from a
spouse's view. Please e-mail
me with your ideas and ques-
tions to beth@homefrontinfo-

blog, columns and broadcast!

My cast of characters sticks together in the end


You hear so much nega-
tive talk about wives
and support groups,
about how women just can't
seem to get along. Now we all
know that in a jam, we are all
there for each other. It is some
unwritten code of ethics. We
complain about each other
and our actions, but in a crisis
we are family.
So I was thinking, why
is it so hard to get along in
the first place? I don't think
we realize the melting pot
that is the military. We have
every race, background and
religion thrown into a room
at a support meeting. Our
husbands sometimes have
very different jobs under the
same command. And there
are stereotypes with that. Not
only do we have to deal with
the stereotypes and judg-
ments of our backgrounds,
races and religions, we take
it a step further and break it
down by rank, rate, division
and branch.
As a nation we judge and
stereotype so much. But, we


as wives have done it. We have
successfully taken segregation
to a whole other level. It is not
something we are proud of,
but almost all of us are guilty
of it somehow at some point,
most of the time, without
knowing we are doing it.
I have thought about how
we as wives see each other.
Do we notice the color of
skin? What about someone's
religion preference? No! I
don't think we do. I think
that we, as a whole, are very
accepting to these huge dif-


ferences. Instead, we break
it down by our own pathetic
stereotypes.
I have come up with a few.
I'm sure that this is not at all
accurate. Some of us may not
fall into any of these catego-
ries. Some may fall a little
bit into each. Some will have
been different ones at dif-
ferent times in our military
lives But this is what I came
up with from my own experi-
ences.
The Optimist-No-Matter-
How-Bad-Things-Are can
see a silver lining. When the
patrol has been extended, the
car is broke, you've had more
than one emergency room
visit and your kids have been
causing your hair to fall out,
she will look at you and find
something great. She will say,
"I know we are extended, but
we got mail. That's something
to be thankful for!" And, as
you are about to crack, you
feel one eye starting to twitch
as you remember that you
have to ride home with her
because your car is broke.


And, on the drive home, you
sit listening to her praise-
and-worship music and you
start to think, could it all be a
front?
The Commander-In-Chief
is a wife who doesn't care how
things are going, she is going
to tell you what you are doing
right or wrong based on her
ample years of experience.
She may not always be a rank
wearing wife, but a lot of the
time she is. She will stand up
and take control of situations
even if not needed to. She can
be a know it all.
The Observer is quiet, does
not speak unless spoken to
and just watches everyone.
She's probably plotting an
escape route out of the room
in the back of her mind. No
one knows when she will be
at a function or for how long.
She just shows up every once
in a while, and when she does
speak on something, people
look as if she is speaking
another language.
When asked how she feels,

Amanda Bailey starring in off-Broadway show


Its funny how some kids
know their destiny when
they are little. Some
acquire it through experienc-
es, some imagine it through
the impact of books or TV
shows, and influential adults
in their young lives mentor
some into it.
This past week, I witnessed
talent that was genetically
poured and stirred by youth-
ful exposure to thousands
of hours of rehearsals and
performances; and learned
of another that dreamed her
life while a child, prepared for
it through diligent education
and hundreds of auditions.
Camden County High
graduate Amanda Bailey
was a star in her time in the
school's drama program.
According to her former prin-
cipal, it was her goal from
an early age to shine on the
stage in the Big Apple. Her
preparation at CCHS and
her consequent training at
New York's Tisch School of
the Arts have allowed her do
some television and stage
work. Recently, Bailey opened
as the star of Trickster At the


Gate, an off-Broadway show-
case production. Within a few
days of the opening, reviewer
Frank Schaeffer wrote, "I
just happen to be one of the
lucky few to see the first play
in New York starring the
- as of yet unknown actor
Amanda Bailey. This young
woman won't be unknown
long. Someday I'll tell my
grandchildren that I was there
when Ms. Bailey America's
new and powerful answer to
Judi Dench launched her
career." He ends his review
with this advice, "Go see this
play."


Later this week, another
former CCHS student and a
former CCHS teacher will see
her performance and offer her
personal congratulations from
our community. Check out
www.athandtheatre.com for
information about the show
and photos of Amanda Bailey
in rehearsal.
During the last two weeks,
I was also fortunate to see
another performer with a
local connection in a regional
production of Jekyll & Hyde
for TheatreZone in Naples,
Fla. For audience and cast
members that saw him or
worked with Jason Kraack in
last summer's production of
Disney's Beauty & the Beast,
you would have loved this
one. One reviewer, Charles
Runnells of the Naples News-
Press, wrote of his turn as the
evil Mr. Hyde, "He prowls the
stage in a herky-jerky move-
ment that's part Frankenstein,
part drunken stupor. It's an
impressive bit of acting." For
some of us, whose memo-
ries are quite clear on his
earlier, funnier roles as a
six-year-old island child in


South Pacific who stubbed his
toe on his first entrance, as a
10-year-old dying to be the
dead body in a high school
production of Arsenic and Old
Lace and as an orange-haired
baddy in sketch comedy at
the Gaylord Palms in Orlando
- where acting was not so
important, this was a unique
and special show. If you are
able to travel, you can next
see Jason as Jean Valjean in
Les Miserables at the Arts
Center of Coastal Carolina on
Hilton Head Island April 22
to May 24. You can find more
information about this show
at the Web site: http://artshhi.
com.
It is not too early to make
plans to see Camden County
High's Fine Arts Department
production of Wizard of Oz, at
7 p.m., April 2 and 3 and at 2
and 7 p.m. April 4 in the high
school auditorium. Tickets
are available by calling (912)
729-7463 or you can purchase
them at the door. More next
week about this cast and pro-
duction.

me to share with readers, send me a

Mrs. Tooth visits children


By MC3 Eric Tretter
Periscope staff


Sailors and a civilian from
the Kings Bay Branch Medical
Clinic Dental Department
made time during their busy
schedules to visit pre-kinder-
garten 4 and 5 year olds at the
Child Development Center
and educate them on healthy
dental habits, March 18.
The visit was prompted in
lieu of last month's National
Children's Dental Health
Month, which celebrated its
60th anniversary. NCDHM's


goal and purpose revolves
around the notion that "devel-
oping good habits (brush-
ing, flossing, eating nutritious
foods, regular dental visits,
etc.) will be beneficial to a
child's over good health."'
"It's definitely effective,"
said pre-K teacher Kimberly
Ross of the Kings Bay Dental
Department's personalized
visit to the CDC. "This after-
noon, when they are brushing
their teeth, they will be think-
ing about what they learned."
During the visit, the life-size
Mrs. Tooth taught the kids


healthy dental habits such as
how long to brush and what
kinds of foods are or are not
good for their teeth. A video
reiterated healthy diets, visit-
ing the dentist and the use of
fluoride.
The students also got to
practice proper, circular-
motion brushing on puppets
that squirted water if done
incorrectly.
"It's really a fun event, not
only for the staff promoting
dental health, but to see their

Dealing


with grief

In Greek mythology,
Demeter, the goddess of
grain, and Zeus have a
daughter named Peresphone.
When the lord of the under-
world snatched her daughter
away, the downcast and deso-
late Demeter wandered the
world in grief and allowed all
the fields of the earth to lie
barren.
In today's world, counselors
would suggest any number
of therapeutic strategies for
this grieving Greek character.
They'd push her to talk about
her loss, vent her frustration
and work through her grief.
Certainly, she would not be
left alone with her sorrow.
Recently our community
has experienced the loss of a
shipmate. Others have felt the
sharp pain of sorrow in their
loss of a relative or a friend.
One of the most important
things to realize in our time of
loss is that we are not alone.
As fellow shipmates, military
and civilian, we stand at the
ready to walk with our broth-
ers and sisters through this
difficult time in their lives.
King David in the Old
Testament of the Bible gives
us, we believe, a vivid exam-
ple how we can cope with
loss and the grief process.
Upon hearing the news of
the deaths of King Saul and
his son Jonathan, David tore
his clothes, begin to cry and
did not eat until the next day.
Such was the ritual of his
time, and it would suggest
that in our grief we need to
reconnect with the tried and
tested ways a society deals
with grief. For many of us, this
means crying, prayer, media-
tion, solitude or the reading of
Holy Scriptures. Reconnecting
with the rhythms of your faith
can be a comforting choice
when loss threatens to over-
whelm us.
David also set a gracious
example of speaking well of
Saul and Jonathan and praises
their lives as the "glory of
Israel." There is no bitterness
or angry feelings, even though
Saul once sought the life of
David. In coming alongside
our shipmates to support
them in their hour of loss, we
encourage them to speak well
of the deceased and express
their medley of feelings. In
our encouragement, we must
remind them that expressing
is good.
We must not allow the
expression of our grief to
become obsession. A fixed
obsession will only sabotage
our recovery. The grief experi-
ence should not keep us in a
barren valley where we are
out of touch with our day-to-
day responsibilities and those
who care about us. We must
continue to walk through the
valley from brokenness to
wholeness.
Finally David asked for
direction from the Eternal
who said to him "go up." The
Eternal does not want us to
be so gripped by our loss that
we fail to see the abundant
life that is bursting in and all
around us. We believe this to

I've yet to visit Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge
without an unsuspected thrill, scare or wonder-
Sment of some kind. Coupled with the fact its East
Entrance is under an hour away from Kings Bay, I'd
say that's reason enough to pay the swamp a visit.
From the perspective of an atlas, the chunk of land
that encompasses Okefenokee shows roads going


around and to it, but none run through it. Basically,
over 400,000 acres of wild swampy, grown-over
goodness better known as "wet prairies, cypress
forests and pine uplands" has proved tougher than
those who have tried to settle or log it. The place is
great for exploring yet too tenacious for taming.
Personally, the best way to experience the refuge
is with a canoe or kayak. That way, you're that much
more separated from modern conveniences like gas
engines, hence all the more connected and accepted


within the swamp. There are plenty of close encoun-
ters with all the creatures you'd expect to find,
such as alligators, herons, egrets and even deer,
albeit those mosquitoes and gnats that shy from the
water's surface.
Okefenokee is not for everyone and after seeing
the umpteenth gator, lily pad and waterfowl some
folks might get solitude confused with boredom.
That's quite alright, I kind of like having the place to
myself.


Signs of Okefenokee are all over Folkston, Ga. This alligator keeps an eye out, as her young swim nearby.


Canoe and kayak waterways near the canal are free of motorboats and full of wildlife.

Navy stabilizing force


By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service
After years of downsiz-
ing, the U.S. Navy has nearly
achieved its end-strength goal
of 329,000 Sailors, a senior
naval officer said March 18.
"For the Navy, force stabi-
lization marks a transitional
period, where we are now fin-
ished downsizing," Rear Adm.
Daniel P. Holloway, director
of the Navy's military person-
nel, plans and policy division,
told Pentagon Channel and
American Forces Press Service
reporters.
The Navy has been reduc-
ing its ranks by 8,000 to 10,000
servicemembers a year for
the past six to seven years,
Holloway said, noting his ser-
vice now is close to reaching
its designed end-strength goal
of about 329,000 sailors.
"We're currently halfway
through the fiscal year within
1 percent of that goal in stabi-
lizing the force'," the two-star
admiral said.
And, as the Navy stabiliz-
es its force, Holloway said, it
wants to recruit and retain
only the best and brightest
Sailors to support the nation's
maritime strategy and the joint
warfighter.
Holloway said he hears pos-
itive feedback about today's
"excellent" Sailors. The Navy's
Perform-to-Serve program
that's been in place for years,
he said, evaluates sailors' duty


CNO releases podcast

on force stabilization


By MC2 (SW) Rebekah
Blowers
Chief of Naval Operations Public
Affairs
The Chief of Naval
Operations Adm. Gary
Roughead released a pod-
cast about the Navy's adjust-
ments in force stabilization
March 23.
The Navy has been bring-
ing down the size of its force
for several years, CNO said,
at a rate of about 10,000
Sailors a year. The Navy's
goal for fiscal year 2009 is to
reduce the force by approxi-
mately 3,000 more Sailors.
"We began to see that the
economy is causing differ-
ent behavior on the part
of the force. Our retention
is extremely high; we're
continuing to retain great
Sailors. We are not seeing
the attrition, or people leav-
ing the Navy, in the numbers
that we have in the past, and
I really do believe that that's
being driven by the econo-
my," Roughead said.

performance to ascertain their
capability for continued ser-
vice.


CNO emphasized that
with that change in behav-
ior, and the Navy's goal of
leveling off the force, they
are making some adjust-
ments to force stabilization
to achieve a balanced force
in terms of seniority, skills
and experience. He empha-
sized that the Navy's focus
is on performance and that
the careers of top perform-
ers will be safeguarded.
Roughead assures his lis-
teners that the Navy is still
hiring, and that it is taking
the right steps to size and
shape the force for now and
in the future.
"I would just like to assure
everyone that we are doing
these force shaping mea-
sures very thoughtfully, very
carefully and with an eye on
making sure that we remain
the best Navy in the world,"
Roughead said. "We'll con-
tinue to keep the Navy
informed of the changes and
how it affects programs and
policies so that our Sailors
know what's going on'"

Qualified sailors also may
have the opportunity to switch
to high-demand jobs at re-

enlistment time, Holloway
said.
Today's sailors are serving
in Afghanistan and Iraq, he
said, as members of provin-
cial reconstruction teams and
improvised explosive device
suppression crews, with civil
affairs groups, and in security
and detention operations.
"We're getting a record
number of volunteers now" to
fill such billets, Holloway said,
adding that he's hearing "that
the Army and Marine Corps"
appreciate the Sailors' contri-
butions.
The Navy employs two types


of assignment categories while
providing Sailors to serve in
overseas slots, Holloway said.
The individual augmentee
process, he said, is used to
fill positions on a very short
notice.
Global war on terrorism
support assignments are
known by the acronym GSA,
Holloway said. They involve
"predictable" overseas assign-
ments of a year's duration, he
said, that would be repetitively
filled.
Holloway said the Navy
can look in advance at that
requirement GSA-system


sourced assignments, while
assignment managers scan
the force to see who'd be ready
to deploy after completion of
their present assignment.
Detailers don't pull Sailors
out of their present duty
assignments when filling GSA
billets, he noted, which results
in less disruption to Sailors'
lives.
Meanwhile, Holloway said,
the Navy continues to attract
high-quality recruits.
"We are a world-class outfit
and we do require world-class
performance," Holloway said.
"So, the standards are high."'

Record deadline approaches


By MCC (SW) Maria Yager
Navy Personnel Command Public
Affairs

As of March 19, more than
128,000 Sailors have estab-
lished a self-service electronic
service record account as the
April target date approaches.
The chief of naval personnel
released a NAVADMIN Feb. 5
announcing the requirement
for all active duty and Reserve
personnel to establish and
maintain a self-service ESR
account within 60 days.
"Having a self-service
account is necessary for
updating emergency contact
information," said Vice Adm.
Mark Ferguson, chief of naval
personnel in NAVADMIN
043/09. "Self-service accounts
contain other important fea-
tures, such as enabling Sailors
to directly submit PCS (per-
manent change of station)
travel claims upon PCS trans-
fer, update race, ethnicity, and
religion information, and view


all other ESR service record
information:'
The requirement date for
Sailors serving at sea and with-
out connectivity to establish
an ESR is 60 days upon return
to homeport.
The Navy first implemented
ESRs in 2006. The ESR provides
individual Sailors, Personnel
Support Activity Detachments
and personnel offices holding
service records with secure,
worldwide Internet access
to personnel, training, and
awards data. Navy Operational
Support Centers and customer
commands of PSDs also can
use the system.
"Eventually, the enlisted
field service record will be
phased out and we will use
only these electronic systems,
so it's important for all Sailors
to establish an ESR account,"
said Dwight Stanton, military
personnel records manager at
Navy Personnel Command.
Self-service accounts can
be created at https://nsips.


nmci.navy.mil or on the Navy
Standard Integrated Personnel
System ESR server on board
ship.
Commanding officers, exec-
utive officers and command
master chiefs can obtain com-
mand-level, view-only access
by completing the NSIPS/
ESR system authorization
request and contacting their
local NSIPS area manager.
This access provides the user
view-only capability for all
ESR accounts within their unit
identification codes.
All commands responsible
for service record entries are
required to initiate updates in
NSIPS ESR, however official
military personnel file require-
ments remain unchanged.
NSIPS ESR is the data entry
point for electronic service
record maintenance. Sailors
are responsible for the accu-
racy of their ESR and must
contact the servicing person-
nel office if any information is
incorrect.

This course, which is
designed similarly to the Petty
Officer First Class Leadership
Course, is scheduled for release
this month and will be deliv-
ered at the command level.
The course is comprised of
20 modules including respon-
sibility, accountability, and
authority; leadership; profes-
sionalism; loyalty; heritage;
command climate; teamwork;
planning; communication;
conflict management; delega-
tion; motivation; stress; diversi-

cations; oral communications;

ethical standards.
Per NAVADMIN 272/08,
PO2SLC will be required for
all P02 selectees from the
August/September exam and
all subsequent exams. For the
fall exam cycle, completion of
Phases I and II of this course
will be required not later than
Feb. 28, 2010.
For all subsequent exam
cycles, selectees must com-
plete Phase I at their com-
mand prior to frocking, and
Phase II of the P02 training,


prior to the first advancement
pay increment.
As with PO1SLC, CPPD will
offer in-residence convening
of PO2SLC during the transi-
tion period to assist commands
as they stand up their own
PO2SLC delivery capability,
in addition to our Command
Delivered Training-Train-the-
Trainer course.
"This training is definitely
going in the right direction;'
said Casey. "It will help get
petty officers motivated and
will give them the specif-
ics at this level of leadership
that they will need to do their
jobs. After all, the command's
prep their enlisted leaders to
advance, so it's good for us
at the command level to con-
tinue teaching them what they
will need to do well in their
jobs and continue to promote
to higher levels of leadership."

ing PO2SLC training can be

Battalion, run 24-hour opera-
tions outside of the base and
have units out for weeks at a
time. The PX provides them
with a welcome break and a
little piece of the world back
home.
"They go so long without
having anything and seem
happier every time they come
[back] in," said Lance Cpl.
Justin R. Harris, a disbursing
clerk temporarily assigned to
the PX.
Sahl Sinjar's isolated loca-
tion can pose some challenges
when it comes to receiving
merchandise for the PX.
According to Woodard, the

wives are amazing women.
We are able to look past what
most of the world is focused
on and have created our
own private, safe and cha-
otic world that only we truly
understand. When you walk
into a support meeting, you
will not see clicks separated
by race or religion. Instead,
you will see our own quirky
judgments that exist only in
our minds.
These stereotypes are not
terrible, nor are they perma-
nent. We as military wives
have been thrown together
without choice or introduc-
tion. We merely walk into a
room filled with women we
don't know, and they are our
family. We will need each
other. We will fight with each
other, but in the end we sup-
port each other.
I guess what I am saying is
that even with the traits of the
personalities I listed, we are
going to be OK. We need to
take note of our differences
more often and be more
patient and understanding.
Don't tell The New, Young
Wife that it's not that bad
her husband is gone now for
months without contact. Let
her know you felt that way
too. Don't tell The Wife-of-
James Bond that her husband
isn't a super hero. Tell her
that you are proud of your
husband, too. Don't let The
Instigator get to you. Think
before you speak ... or, better
yet, sometimes there is noth-
ing wrong with a smile and
nod. You don't have to always
prove your point. And, don't
wish that The Super Mom
would fail. No one is perfect.
Even she has her flaws wheth-
er they are visible or not.
I hope I made some sort of
a point in all this. We are not
as bad as our own negative
publicity. Think about it.

Cooling-off rule


can nix purchases


Great day for the Irish Navy photo by
Free hors d'oeuvres, drink specials, a live band, door prizes, a trivia game and plenty of cheer kept KB Finnegan's lively
patrons entertained March 17 for Saint Patrick's Day.


By LNC (SW/AW) M. A.
Champagne
Legal Assistance
This week's topic is called
the "Cooling-Off Rule.'
Here's the situation: You're
at home watching the ball-
game on a Saturday afternoon,
when you get a knock on your
door. It's a salesperson who
convinces you to buy a life-
time supply of haze-gray paint.
Sounds like a good idea at the
time, and you would rather get
back to the ballgame than try
to convince him to leave you
alone, so you agree.
The next day you realize you
don't need any more haze-
gray paint in your life, and you
want to back out of the deal.
Can you?
Yes. Under the Cooling-Off
Rule, if you buy something at
your home or at a location that
is not the seller's permanent
place of business, you may be
able to back out of the deal


and get a full refund. But you
only have three days to back
out, and this only works for
purchases of $25 or more.
The rule does not apply if
you make a purchase at the
seller's primary place of busi-
ness, such as if you went to
the hardware store to buy the
paint. There are also other
exceptions, for example you
cannot back out if the sale was
for less than $25, the buyer
initiates contact with the sell-
er to make personal property
repairs or if the sale was made
over the phone or by mail.
You also can't use the
Cooling-Off Rule to back out
of sales that involve real estate,
insurance, securities or vehi-
cles sold at temporary loca-
tions if the seller has at least
one permanent place of busi-

Don't let your grill


From NSB Kings Bay Fire Department
The National Fire Protection
Association reports gas and
charcoal grills caused an aver-
age of 3,400 structure fires
and 4,900 outdoor fires in or
on home properties in 2005,
resulting in a combined direct
property loss of $137 million.
To make sure your next bar-
becue doesn't go up in flames,
the Kings Bay Fire Department
and other local departments
recommend the following
safety tips:
Propane and charcoal
BBQ grills must only be used
outdoors. If used indoors, or
in any enclosed spaces, such
as tents, they pose both a fire
hazard and the risk of expos-


ing occupants to toxic gases
and potential asphyxiation.
Position the grill well away
from siding, deck railings and
out from under eaves and
overhanging branches.
Place the grill a safe dis-
tance from lawn games, play
areas and foot traffic.
Keep children and pets
away from the grill area:
declare a three-foot "safe zone"
around the grill.
NPut out several long-han-
dled grilling tools to give the
chef plenty of clearance from
heat and flames when flipping
burgers.

More than 60 Boy Scouts
and adult Scout mentors
will unite at Etowah Park at
Kings Bay Naval Base dur-
ing the weekend of March
27 to 29 for the annual
Osprey District Camporee.
Scouts spend the week-
end outdoors sharing fel-
lowship, friendly compe-
titions and the Scouting
spirit.
Campout events will be
offered that teach skills
designed to challenge
Scouts of all levels. The
camporee will include high
adventure and competitive
activities.
Because Boy Scout troops
are organized under the
leadership of senior youth
leaders, young people gain
experience to be positive
mentors.
On Saturday, staff from
the Camden Bicycle Center,
Kings Bay Fire Department,
St. Marys Yacht Club and
the Kings Bay Golf Club
will be assisting in a variety
of activities and training for
the attendees. Some will
be honing the typical Boy
Scout skills while others
will participate in archery,
bicycling, boating/safety,
composites, a solar oven
cook off, golf, fishing, ori-
enteering, wilderness sur-
vival and other classes.

ities will have a closing

Saturday to learn more
about the program.
In addition to Cub Scouts

both service and activity
oriented and often include
high adventure experienc-
es;
Sea Scouting, designed
to promote better citizen-
ship and to improve nauti-
cal skills and knowledge;
Exploring, a worksite-
based program that gives
youth an opportunityto visit
community organizations
and explore the dynamics
of various careers.

more parity than previous years. The four No. 1 seeds are
very solid, and there is no real separating factor. There
have been some notable upsets in the first few days of the
tournament. The games have been tough with fewer blowouts


than I recall from previous years. But, with that being said, I
think the most solid team with the toughness on both ends of
the floor to capture the coveted National Championship is the
University of Pittsburgh Panthers. I think they protect the ball
and aren't prone to turning the ball over. They have two scorers


who are hard to deal with on their offensive end and the sup-
porting cast is very fundamentally sound. I also like the way
point guard LaVance Fields controls the tempo of the game. So,
I am going with Pitt. Hopefully they aren't knocked out of the
tournament before this column runs.

on the offensive end to defend gut feeling tells me that it is
one-on-one. They have good going to be them. They play
size down low in the forward relentless defense and play
and center positions, too." at a fast pace on both ends of
the floor."

"I'm going with the Pitt
Panthers. They're the best all-
around team left in the tour-
nament. They are tough on
defense. They don't turn over
the ball. They are really bal-
anced on the offensive end.
They have more than one
weapon. It makes making a
strategy against them tough."

NSB instructor does tour in Bahrain


By Russ Prothero
Cape Fox Professional Services


When we were kids in school, one of the
first assignments back each school year
was to write the preverbal what I did last
summer.
This is going to sound somewhat like
that. This trip has taken me quite a few
new places.
I've seen the inside of the major airports
in Brussels, Rome and Athens.
Coming home will be through Kuwait.
This journey has also lead me to several
military bases in the European and South
West Asia theaters.


The majority of my training time has
been spent supporting Naval Support
Activity Bahrain. Bahrain is an island
country off the coast of Saudi Arabia. In
fact, you can drive to Saudi Arabia via a
causeway connecting the two.
Since I've been here I've taught two
AAA classes, eight safety stand-downs
and will complete an ERC just for good
measure.
The safety stand-downs here were
extremely interesting. Command Master
Chief Randy Shoe has hosted a 45-minute
segment on RODS safety. His approach is
none like I've seen. I won't tell you what it
is, because I have a feeling that this might


be headed to The Periscope and I would
like to give it an attempt there at Kings Bay
sometime. So, I don't want to give any
trade secrets.
I've closed each session talking about
drinking and driving, and traffic safety.
What's Bahrain like? When I was on
active duty, I was fortunate to travel to
many parts of the world Oman, Kenya
and Djibouti, just to name a few. Bahrain
is nothing like them.
It's very modern, even by our stan-
dards.

Prospects improving in Iraq


By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service

Prospects for the Iraqi peo-
ple "get better every day," with
the Iraqis now solving their
problems "politically, and not
with guns," Defense Secretary
Robert M. Gates said March
18 as Operation Iraqi Freedom
marked its sixth anniversary.
"That's a much different kind
of life," Gates said, contrasting
life in Iraq now to what the
Iraqis endured under Saddam
Hussein's brutal dictatorship.
And while challenges
remain, Gates noted positive
trends in Iraq's security, diplo-
macy and economy. "I think
that we will be in a much bet-
ter place in 2011," he said.
Gates conceded that those
strides have come at a high
cost for the Iraqis, the coalition
and the American people.
"The past six years have
been very difficult for them
and very painful for them, and
very difficult for us as well,;'
he said.
One of the most difficult
periods since Operation Iraqi
Freedom launched on March
19, 2003, came in 2006 when
officials conceded that Iraq
was on the verge of failure.
A 20,000-troop surge, togeth-
er with anew U.S. strategy pro-
moting more diplomatic and
economic initiatives, helped
turn Iraq from a failed state
to what officials concede is a
fragile one. The state of secu-
rity, they say, is becoming less
fragile every day.
"I believe that the Iraqi peo-
ple today, with all that pain
in the past, have a future that
they have probably never had
before," Gates said. "Theyactu-
ally have a say in who governs


them, where
there is the
opportunity
for people to g
live under a
government
that oper-
ates under
the law, and Gates
the opportu-
nity for economic growth and
prosperity that makes life bet-
ter for all Iraqis:'
Still, the roots of Iraq's dem-
ocratic government "are still
relatively shallow," Gates said,
and need to continue growing.
"There is still a need for
further reconciliation and
ensuring that things like the
hydrocarbon law get passed,
and that some of the issues
between the Arabs and the
Kurds are resolved peacefully,"
he said.
"It will probably take some
considerable period of time
for the Iraqis to work their
way through" these and other
issues, he said, but the future
looks positive.
Security trends continue to
move in a positive direction,
said Air Force Lt. Col. Patrick
Ryder, a Defense Department
spokesman. Violence is down
in virtually every category:
fewer civilian, coalition and
Iraqi security force casualties,
fewer insurgent bombings
and suicide attacks, and less
ethno-sectarian violence.
Iraqi security forces, work-
ing closely with coalition
troops, have made headway in
disrupting al-Qaida networks
and reducing terrorists' ability
to communicate and coordi-
nate, Ryder said.
Meanwhile, as President
Barack Obama announced


during a Feb. 27 visit to Camp
Lejeune, N.C., the mission of
U.S. forces in Iraq will funda-
mentally change after Aug. 31,
2010. At that point, the U.S.
military will have three tasks:
Train, equip and advise
the Iraqi security forces;
Conduct targeted counter-
terrorism operations; and
Provide force protection
for military and civilian per-
sonnel.
And, except for counterter-
rorism operations conducted
in close coordination with the
Iraqi government, U.S. forces
will cease combat operations.
Multinational Force Iraq will
be redesignated as a transition
force headquarters consisting
of a single headquarters, sev-
eral advisory and assistance
brigades and appropriate sup-
porting forces, Ryder said.
As the United States transi-
tions full security responsibili-
ty to the Iraqis and draws down
U.S. forces in Iraq, Obama
pledged to proceed cautiously
and in close coordination with
commanders on the ground
and the Iraqi government.
"As we carry out this draw-
down, my highest priority will
be the safety and security of our
troops and civilians in Iraq," he
said during his Camp Lejeune
visit. "So we will proceed care-
fully, and I will consult closely
with my military commanders
on the ground and with the
Iraqi government:'
"There will surelybe difficult
periods and tactical adjust-
ments," Obama said. "But our
enemies should be left with no
doubt: This plan gives our mil-
itary the forces and flexibility
they need to support our Iraqi
partners, and to succeed."

al designs that are much dif-
ferent than what we're use to
at home. In town, almost every
building is concrete, multisto-
ry and boxy. Some have the
arched openings which are
characteristic of the Arabic
movie settings.
Transportation infrastruc-
ture is just as it is with ours. The
only difference is their signs
are in Arabic and English.
The only reason our military
folks are probably homesick is
missing their families, because
they have access to almost
any American restaurant you
could imagine. Heck, they just
opened a TGI Fridays near the

can call almost any restaurant
to have your order delivered.
This even includes frozen
treats from of all places, Dairy
Queen.
Like the United States,
Bahrainis ameltingpotofmany
cultures. The local nationals
are of Arabic decent and typi-
cally are the store or building
owners. From what I've seen,
they have the managerial jobs,
while all of the domestic help
comes from other countries.
India, Pakistan, Indonesia and
the Philippines seem to be the
source of most of the domestic
help here.
Bahrain is different from
most Islamic countries in that
it is not as strict. This is the
party location for the Middle
East, so to speak. Unlike most
Arab countries, alcohol is per-
mitted here. Talking with the
troops stationed here, most of
the alcohol related incidents
here are caused by those com-
ing across the causeway.


As for NSA Bahrain, it serves
as the home for the Multi
Forces here in the Middle East.
Some of the nations represent-
ed here include Canada, the
UK, Australia, Japan, Turkey,
Egypt and Nepal. The only U.S.
military presence I haven't
seen here are the Air Force.
Everybody else is here in some
fashion.
All of my classes and stand-
downs have been for Navy and
civilian personnel assigned
to NSA Bahrain. I've ran into
several folks that have been
stationed at Kings Bay, so it
was great seeing them again.
I was surprised when young
MA3 Cobb walked up to me
and said he had been in one of
my AAA classes in Kings Bay.
As an instructor/rider coach,
if does feel pretty good when
a former student walks up and
says, "Hey I remember you!"
Still, I miss home and I'll be
glad to be back there in a few
days.

Coast Guard photo
P02 Josh Field, left, and SA Bob Parks remove the plastic from the brown pelican's neck.


Guardians rescue nature, too


From Coast Guard Station Ponce
Inlet, Fla.

Two guardians from Coast
Guard Station Ponce Inlet, Fla.,
rescued an entangled pelican
the morning of March 15 near
the Intracoastal Waterway in
New Smyrna Beach, Fla.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Josh
Field and Seaman Apprentice
Bob Parks of Station Ponce
Inlet arrived on scene with a
dip net to capture and free
the bird of the plastic around
its neck. Parks quickly covered
the bird with the net to prevent


it from escaping.
Field then controlled the
bird and removed if from the
net while Parks removed the
plastic from around the peli-
can's neck, which could have
caused the bird to die.
The rescue began when a
New Smyrna Beach resident
noticed a brown pelican on
a neighbor's dock on the
Intracoastal Waterway with a
tightly wrapped piece of plas-
tic around the bird's neck,
which was also preventing it
from flying.


The resident then con-
tacted rescue authorities in
New Smyrna Beach to assist
the bird. However, when the
rescue unit arrived the bird
escaped into the waterway.
Later in the morning the peli-
can was spotted again and the
Coast Guard was notified.
In addition to the Coast
Guard's missions of protecting
the public and security of mar-
itime interests at, the Coast
Guard also has the responsi-
bility to protect wildlife and
the environment.


Brunswick CG station honored


From Coast Guard Station Brunswick

The crewmembers of Coast
Guard Station Brunswick
accepted the prestigious
Sumner I. Kimball Readiness
Award at a ceremony March
11.
The award was presented
by Rear Adm. Steve Branham,
commander Coast Guard
Seventh District. Station
Brunswick earned the award
for their outstanding perfor-
mance during a biennial eval-
uation conducted by the Coast
Guard Standardization Team.
The 32 members assigned
to the Station Brunswick are
responsible for the execution
of Coast Guard missions from
the Florida-Georgia border to
St. Catherines Island. In 2008,


they were credited with saving
and or assisting 39 lives and
$213 thousand in property.
During the evaluation,
crewmembers were tested in
their ability to use small boat
rescue equipment properly
during emergency situations
when dealing with search and
rescue, towing and engineer-
ing casualties.
The crewmembers were
also tested with a compre-
hensive written exam, cover-
ing a broad spectrum of Coast
Guard mission knowledge,
including rescue and survival,
boat equipment, boat mis-
sions, environmental limita-
tions, navigational rules, engi-
neering systems and first aid.
"Search and rescue is our
primary mission and that is


what we train for," said Senior
Chief Petty Officer Andrew
Engle, officer-in-charge Station
Brunswick. "This award dem-
onstrates that our crew's dedi-
cation and diligence has paid
off and we are always ready to
serve the public."
The Sumner I. Kimball
Readiness Award is presented
to Coast Guard stations scor-
ing in the top 10 percentile
of all Coast Guard stations
throughout the nation during
standardization visits.
The station received a
plaque for display inside and
a pennant for display on their
flag pole. The pennant will
remain in place until the sta-
tion is tested during the next
scheduled STANTEAM evalu-
ation.

Marines end weight


loss grace period


By Cpl. Noah S. Leffler
Marine Corps Air Station Cherry
Point

Marines not currently with-
in their height and weight or
military appearance standards
are feeling the burn.
Earlier this month, Marine
Administrative Message
145/09 announced the termi-
nation of the 60-day notifica-
tion and cautionary periods
for the Body Composition
and Military Appearance
Programs.
Sgt. Maj. Danny Smith,
senior enlisted advisor for the
2nd Marine Air Wing, said BCP
and MAP originally gave over-
weight Marines 120 days to
meet their regulations without
administrative repercussions.
In essence, a Marine check-
ing into a command who
was out of standards was not
immediately put on a weight
control program, Smith said.
"Now that grace period has
been terminated," he said.
"The commandant simply
feels that commanders now
have been given sufficient
time to identify those Marines
that are not in compliance.
The MARADMIN further
states that service members
on, or being processed for,
BCP are ineligible for promo-
tion, reenlistment or special-
duty assignment.


"If you get assigned to BCP,
it affects all kinds of things,"
said Master Sgt. Donald
Iskerka, Headquarters and
Headquarters Squadron's
training chief. "The bottom
line is being on a BCP assign-
ment has a negative effect on
your career."
If personal appearance and
professional consequences
aren't enough reason to stay in
shape, overweight individuals
also have a myriad of health
issues.
"If you're overweight, you're
more prone to disease;'," said
Rebekah Rayfield, a Wellness
Clinic dietitian at the Naval
Health Clinic Cherry Point.
"Diabetes, heart disease, high
blood pressure the sky's
the limit. Obesity affects pret-
ty much every organ in our
body."'
According to Smith, it all
boils down to what is expected
of all who don the eagle, globe
and anchor.
"As the Marine Corps, it's
not just an image," Smith said.
"We have a standard, and the
commandant and sergeant
major of the Marine Corps are
very adamant that we're not
going to reduce those stan-
dards. Marines are expected
to be physically fit, and we're
going to hold them account-
able to maintain that level of
fitness."

President

calls halt

to VA plan
American Forces Press Service
President Barack Obama
has dropped a proposal to
bill veterans' private health
insurance for combat-related
injuries, White House Press
Secretary Robert Gibbs said
March 19.
The Obama administra-
tion proposed authorizing the
Department ofVeterans Affairs
to bill private insurers for treat-
ment of combat-related inju-
ries. VA officials estimated the
proposal would have saved the
government more than $500
million.
VA already recoups money
from vets insurance for non-
combat-related treatment.
Strong opposition from
Congress and veterans groups
caused the administration
to rethink the proposal. In
a written statement, Gibbs
said Obama "is committed to
working with veterans on the
details of the 2010 VA Budget
Proposal."'
The president understands
the sacrifices American vet-
erans have made, and that is
why the administration has
asked for "the largest increase
in the VA budget in 30 years,"
the spokesman said. The pro-
posed VA budget for fiscal
2010 is $113 billion, up from
$98 billion this year.
"In considering the third-
party billing issue, the admin-
istration was seeking to maxi-
mize the resources available
for veterans; however, the
president listened to concerns
raised by the [veterans service
organizations] that this might,
under certain circumstances,
affect veterans and their fami-
lies' ability to access health
care," Gibbs said. "Therefore,
the president has instruct-
ed that its consideration be
dropped:"
The press secretary added
that Obama wants to continue
working with all concerned.

training," West wrote in his
message.
"Having been a motorcycle
rider, I'm concerned for all
riders, but we need to focus
immediately on those who are
in the highest risk group;' said
West.
MCPON stated in his mes-
sage that the groups he's most
concerned with are sport bike
riders, Sailors E-5 and below
and those with little to no
experience as many mishaps
occur soon after the purchase
of the motorcycle.
"Most of the casualties,"
West said, "have been on sport
bikes operated by untrained
riders."'
West said that he hopes his
use of a P4 will emphasize the
importance of sport bike safe-
ty, especially with the summer
months approaching.
"I'm going to use every
means at my disposal to get
this word out. We have young
men and women dying on our
freeways and less than half of
the Sailors who should have


attended the mandatory train-
ing have showed up.
"Our concern as senior
enlisted leaders should be to
give our Sailors the training
and tools that could help them
survive on the highways."
P4's have traditionally been
reserved for the flag commu-
nity, a method of communica-
tion admirals have used for
decades to get word quickly
and privately to other senior
and commanding officers.
West said it's not an
approach he intends to use
frequently, but he felt the grav-
ity of this particular subject
warranted it.
"We have more than 7,500
Sailors who still haven't
attended the Sport Bike rider
course," he said. "We've got to
do better than that. It's a mat-
ter of life and death."'
The unprecedented P4 spe-
cifically directs chief petty
officers to "personally involve
yourself in obtaining a [class]
quota and ensuring your
Sailors attend."

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 ts 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 hose who take such ships to sea.
In each submarine there are men who. in the hour ofemergency 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 ofresponsibility. His privileges, in view
of his obligations, are most ludicrously small; nevertheless it is the
spur. which has given the Nany its greatest mariners the men of
the Submarine Service.
It is a duty, which most richly deserves the proud and time-
honored title of-.-
SUBMARINER
Come celebrate 109 years of Submarine service with
friends and family!
Prizes awarded to command with greatest
attendance and best centerpiece!
