Kings Bay welcomes USS Alaska


Some 1,000 crew,

family members

expected to live here

By Gordon Jackson
Courtesy of the Times-Union
After spending more than 26 months in a
Norfolk, Va., shipyard, the USS Alaska (SSBN
732) is preparing to return to active duty.
But the Trident submarine will not return to
Bangor Naval Submarine Base in Washington,
the only port its called home since it was com-
missioned in 1986.
The Alaska was scheduled to arrive at its new
duty station, here at Kings Bay Naval Submarine
Base, April 1.
The boat's crew was set to be greeted by
immediate family members and invited guests.


The crew already has completed sea trials to
test the boat's performance and seaworthiness
before it returns to duty.
An Assumption of Command Ceremony will
be held sometime in May to split the sailors
assigned to the boat into two crews, Blue and
Gold, Kings Bay spokeswoman, Lt. Rebecca
Rebarich said.
Two crews are assigned to the boat to maxi-
mize its time at sea preforming its role as a key
deterrent to nuclear war. While one 165-man
crew is at sea, the other undergoes training on
base. The crews swap about once every 100
days.
During its time in Norfolk, only one crew was
assigned to the boat while it underwent a refu-
eling overhaul. The boat now has a supply of
fuel that will power the Alaska's nuclear reactor
the next 20 years.
Navy officials said no other upgrades were
done while the Alaska was in Norfolk.
Chris Daniel, director of the Camden County


Chamber of Commerce, estimates 1,000 Sailors
and family members move to Camden County
with each Ohio-class submarine at Kings Bay.
Rebarich said sailors assigned to the boat
began arriving at their
new duty station six "Anyti

Daniel said the welcome a

a "huge impact" on the a nd crew,

she said. "Real estate
prices pick up, and
people will shop locally."
Local businesses traditionally host a picnic
to welcome new crews and their families to the
county. Daniel said she is seeking donations for
a picnic planned after May's ceremony splitting


the crews.
"We want to have both crews there," she said.
"They're slowly coming in."

help boost the local
economy, which has
been struggling.
"This is good news,;'
he said. "The economy
is so down. Anything
will help."
On paper, eight
Ohio-class submarines
are ported at Kings
Bay. But one boat, the
USS Tennessee, is now


in the Norfolk shipyards undergoing a similar
refueling. The Alaska is the third boat at Kings
Bay that has been refueled. The remaining
boats on base are scheduled for refueling with-
in the next decade on a rotating basis.


Refueling refit


under budget


USS Alaska work completed

on time at Norfolk shipyard
From Norfolk Naval Shipyard Public Affairs

The fleet ballistic missile submarine USS Alaska (SSBN 732)
finished its 27.5 month availability at Norfolk Naval Shipyard on
schedule and under cost March 8, successfully marking the first
East Coast overhaul of a SSBN.
"The Alaska team made a very difficult task seem easy," said
NAVSEA Deputy Commander for Logistics, Maintenance and
Industrial Operations, Rear Adm. Mark A. Hugel. "Your ability
to close the deal was impressive, and I know it was because of
the positive, steady strain that you used in approaching this avail
from the beginning of planning all the way to the end.
Pete Marfio, project superintendent, said knowledge was
gained from having worked two guided-missile submarine
conversions at Norfolk and from knowledge sharing with Puget
Sound Naval Shipyard on the West Coast engineering refueling
overhauls
"We applied that knowledge to our advantage,"' he said.
The reactor servicing team finished the refueling 12 days
ahead of schedule, beating the previous record by 16 days.
During this work phase, the servicing team credited Puget
Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility
for sharing lessons learned and building on the "one shipyard"
concept.
"It was all about teamwork and commitment," said Bobby
Lake, deputy project superintendent. "From cold ops to hot ops,
from the boat's arrival to the undocking evolution, we had a plan
and executed it"
Lake added that the availability also was guided by daily
morning meetings where everyone discussed their goals for the
upcoming day, and allowed great interaction between the proj-
ect team and ship's crew.
"Key events and milestones were all met either early or on

time," said Wayne Moss, assistant project superintendent. "The
key to the project team was the project team!"
Since March 30, 2006, NNSY has been part of the Occupational
Safety and Health Administration's Voluntary Protection
Program and earned "star site" status.
As a star site, the shipyard made significant improvements
in compensation management, employee incentive programs,
ergonomic intervention and employee OSH involvement.


The shipyard's Lean Six-Sigma processes also contributed to
the decline in workplace hazards as well as the lowest injury/
illness rate for a long duration submarine availability in the
Navy.
Norfolk Naval Shipyard is one of NAVSEA's four public ship-
yards that play a major role in sustaining America's fleet and
provide wartime surge capability to keep the nation's ships
ready for combat.


Mabus nominated


for secretary post


Most recent was
World War II-era
battle cruiser

By MC1 (SW) Joe Sabo
Periscope Staff
Kings Bay is expecting a
new member of the family this
week with the arrival of the
USS Alaska (SSBN 732), and
behind every Navy vessel is a
name and the name's history.
The USS Alaska is the first
submarine to bear the name
Alaska, but it has had three
Navy predecessors, a gunboat,
a minesweeper and a battle
cruiser.
The first of the four sea-going
war vessels was the gunboat. It
was a wooden-hulled, screw-
driven sloop of war, built at
the Boston Navy Yard. It was
launched on Halloween Night,
1868, and was sponsored by
Grace Hull, the daughter of
Boston's mayor.
The gunboat was captained


by Cmdr. Homer C. Blake,
who took command of 769
Sailors and Marines, man-
ning seven 12-pound howit-
zers, four stern launches and
numerous boats. After serving
with the Asiatic, European and
Pacific Squadrons, the ship
was decommissioned Feb. 13,
1883.
The second ship to bear the
name Alaska had a short Navy
sea life. The fishing trawler
was built in Boothbay Maine,
in 1881, and was a commer-
cial fishing vessel for many
years. The U.S. Navy chartered
it for World War I service from
the Fisheries Products Co. of
Wilmington, N.C., on Sept. 18,
1918, converting it into a ser-
vice vessel.
This Alaska was used as a
mine sweeper and patrol ves-
sel for the remainder of the
war and a short while after,
patrolling off Charleston,
S.C. On Jan. 10 1919, it was
returned to Fishery Products
and stricken from the Navy list

that served in the Pacific.


that same day.
The third ship to have the
name Alaska was a large cruis-
er. The larger classes of cruis-
ers were named after areas or
territories, rather than states,
to distinguish them from other
classes of ships. Of the six large
cruisers, the USS Alaska (CB 1)
was the flagship of the class.
This Alaska was launched Aug.
15, 1943. The government only
built three of the battle cruis-
ers, the Alaska, Guam and
Hawaii.
After its commissioning June
17, 1944, the Alaska guarded
aircraft carriers in the Pacific


during World War II. In March,
1945, the USS Franklin (CV 13)
was hit by two bombs, and the
Alaska and her sister ship, the
Guam, escorted the carrier on
its return to Guam. The Alaska
spent the rest of the war in the
China Sea conducting raids on
Japanese ships.
After the war, Alaska sailed
forBostonNavalYard. Prepared
for inactivation, the ship was
assigned a permanent berth-
ing area at Bayonne, N.J. On
August 13, 1946, Alaska was
placed in inactive status com-
mission, until its final decom-
missioning, Feb. 17, 1947.


President selects
former governor,
ambassador
From The White House
President Barack Obama
announced his intent March
26 to nominate Ray Mabus as
Secretary of the Navy.
The announcement came
along with other nominations.
"At this critical moment
in our nation's history, I am
grateful that these exceptional
public servants have chosen to
help my administration bring
the change our country needs
today," Obama said.
Mabus has served as gov-
ernor of Mississippi, ambas-
sador to the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia and chairman and CEO
of Foamex, a large manufac-
turing company.
As the youngest governor of
Mississippi in more than 100
years at the time of his elec-
tion, he stressed education


and job creation. He passed
Better Education for Success
Tomorrow, one of the most
comprehensive education
reform programs in America
andwas named one or Fortune
Magazine's top ten education
governors.
During his tenure as ambas-
sador, a crisis with Iraq was
successfully deterred and
Saudi Arabia officially aban-
doned the boycott of United
States businesses that trade
with Israel.
Mabus was chosen CEO of
Foamex to help lead it out of
bankruptcy. Less than nine
months after his appointment,
Foamex successfully emerged
from Chapter 11.
Mabus has been award-
ed the U.S. Department of
Defense Distinguished Public
Service Award, the U.S. Army's
Distinguished Civilian Service
Award and the Martin Luther
King Social Responsibility
Award from the King Center
in Atlanta.

Honeymoons, newsletters, blogs and more


May I introduce
myself? Recently I
had the privilege of
traveling to speak to various
groups. It came to my atten-
tion many military spouses
may not be aware that I do
more than write a weekly
column. At the exhortation of
many, I would like to intro-
duce my other efforts.
Operation Honeymoon
- did you and your service
member have a honeymoon?
A little research revealed that
perhaps as many as 65 per-
cent of enlisted couples never
had a honeymoon. Officer
couples, while a somewhat
lower number, also go years
hoping to have a honeymoon
with their service member. I
have heard from many spous-
es who could use a boost, a
blessing if you will. What bet-
ter gift can you give a military
spouse than memorable,
undistracted time with their
service member? I founded
Operation Honeymoon to
send military couples on a
honeymoon cruise. Learn

Back in the day, I was The Young Wife, too


D ear Marie, I am a 20-
S year-old Navy wife
. and my husband just
left on his second deployment.
I read your column that talked
about wives and you men-
tioned The Young Wife and
that she thinks she loves her
husband more than everyone
else. Well, after being part
of the command, Ifind that
there are a lot of wives that
don't seem to love or even like
their husbands. I don't think
it has anything to do with age,
I think there are some bad
wives, The Young Wife
Thank you for this com-
ment. I love getting e-mails
from readers. Keep them
coming! With permission
from The Young Wife, I want
to talk about this.
I thought this was some-


thing we could all relate to.
Being the young, new wife
is not easy. I'm considered
more of a seasoned wife at
this point, but I can vividly
remember my first deploy-
ment. I was married at 19 and
my husband deployed when


I was 21. I had one child run-
ning around and one in my
arms just a few months old.
I remember moving to this
base and finding out that my
husband would be deploy-
ing as our household goods
arrived. It all happened so
fast. I didn't have time to cry.
I took him to the pier and
said goodbye, and I couldn't
let him go. Our son cried for
his dad and our daughter,
just an infant slept in her car
seat. As my husband walked
away, I saw the fear in his eyes
about leaving me. He was
torn between his career and
his love for us. Watching him
walk away was the hardest
thing I had ever done.
Once home, I went about
my day and thought, "I can do
this" ... that is until the kids


were in bed, and I was alone.
I had never felt so alone. I
cried until I was sick. I didn't
know anyone or where I was.
My first encounter with other
wives was when I got a quick
phone call telling me to come
to so and so's house to do a
Christmas video for my hus-
band, hours after they left. I of
course jumped at the chance,
got all dolled up, put the kids
in their cutest clothes and
hurried over.
When I arrived, women
were chatting and laughing
and they all looked unfazed
that their husbands had just
left. I was all teary eyed and
quiet. And they looked as if
they where throwing a party. I
did the video and left so con-

The Wizard of Oz upcoming at high school


It is doubtful that in 1900,
when L. Frank Baum
published his novel The
Wonderful Wizard of Oz,
he ever imagined it would
be reincarnated in so many
forms, including plays, stage
musicals and films, and
remain so much a part of
popular culture for so long.
This work is so admired
that even the adaptations
have yielded new treatments,
such as ice shows. And, after
all these celebrated efforts,
this week the timeless story of
Dorothy, the Wizard and the
Witches of Oz comes to the
stage of the Camden County
High School Auditorium in
the form of its annual Fine
Arts Department musical pro-
duction, The Wizard of Oz.
This show is the compila-
tion effort of high school,
middle school and elemen-
tary performers. It is a coordi-
nated effort of the combined
drama, art, music and dance
departments at our commu-
nity's high school. That means
that more than 100 high
school actors, dancers, musi-
cians and technicians, along
with more than 70 middle
and high school performers
as Jitterbugs, Munchkins and


townspeople, will appear in,
play for or work on this show.
They have been rehearsing
since January and each of
them has lost track of how
much time they have devoted.
Drama, art, dance, vocal
and instrumental music
instructors, as well as stage
and technical coordinators,
have guided them daily in this
process, joined by dozens of
parents and volunteers work-
ing on costumes, makeup,
lobby displays and conces-
sions.
Besides noting the immen-
sity of this undertaking, I
want to make one other point.
There are at least five senior
actors in this show that will


go to college, having earned
scholarships based on their
talents, which have been
sharpened and burnished
in our school and commu-
nity productions. There are
perhaps another seven to 10
juniors in this show that may
do the same next year.
In addition, there are at
least a dozen more dancers
and instrumentalists perform-
ing here that will earn the
same opportunities this year
because of their training and
commitment to artistic excel-
lence. And among the young-
er children, whose eyes widen
in admiration every time
they see these "big kids" per-
form, who knows how many
of them will get the same or
greater opportunities, fostered
and shepherded by our teach-
ers and arts programs?
I no longer have to make
any veiled references about
this, since the voters have
already spoken. Our invest-
ment in our educational arts
programs yield as much or
more "educational profit,"
in terms of post-secondary
opportunities and skills train-
ing as any program, athletic or
academic, in our educational
system.


And adding classrooms,
technology and curricula to
sustain and further develop
these programs is not a mis-
take, but a real advantage for
our children and our com-
munity.
That we have, as a com-
munity, recognized this and
supported it is also a true
mark of our understanding of
these facts and of our com-
mensurate commitment to
the results yielded by arts
education.
Given the overall commit-
ment of our community's
children and young adults to
this effort, its makes sense for
you to see Camden County
High's Fine Arts Department
production of The Wizard of
Oz, at 7 p.m., April 2 and 3
and at 2 and 7 p.m. April 4.
Tickets are available by call-
ing (912) 729-7463, or you can
purchase them at the door.
After all, you can get there
more easily than Dorothy can
get home, unless you have
your own pair of ruby slip-
pers. In that case, just click
your heels three times ...and
we will see you there.
If you have ideas or events you want
me to share with readers, send me a
note at pkraackl @tds.net.

Obama


pledges


support

By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service
President Barack Obama
promised during an online
town hall meeting March 26
to ensure returning veterans
from Iraq and Afghanistan
receive the benefits and sup-
port they deserve.
"When our veterans
come home from Iraq and
Afghanistan and they have
performed brilliantly; they
have done everything that's
been asked of them, regardless
ofwhat your views are on these
wars they have earned these
benefits that, all too often, we
fail to give them," the president
told a questioner during a ses-
sion otherwise dominated by
economic issues.
Obama said his Department
of Veterans Affairs budget pro-
posal, with the biggest funding
increase in 30 years.
The president called the
high homeless rate for vet-
erans, multiple times that of
nonveterans, "inexcusable."

fused.
A few days later I went to
my first wives group meet-
ing. Yes, it was still called
the Wives Club. Wives were
talking about some trips they
were going to take without
their husbands and how they
were so happy they had finally
left so they could get back on
a schedule.
I was shocked. Take a
trip without my husband?
Couldn't wait for them to
leave? They were all so happy
and giddy.
I thought these women
were just awful and decided
right then that I loved my hus-
band more than they loved

theirs because I could never
feel that way. I went home
angry that night. And I didn't
participate in many functions
because of how I felt about
those women.
And then I became a mili-
tary wife. I was new looking
in on a world I knew noth-
ing about at an age when I
thought I knew it all. Those
women loved their husbands
as much as I loved mine, but
they didn't wait at home cry-
ing like I did. They were out
with their children having
fun and not letting life stop
because their husbands were
away. And, they were anxious
for their husbands to leave
because of the chaos that
comes with the build up to
deployment. They wanted the
men to hurry up and leave, so
that they could hurry up and


come home.
Those women still cried.
They were lonely and sad at
times. But, more than any-
thing, they were strong.
It might seem that there are
wives who don't like or love
their husbands, and there
are women who don't. But,
the majority of them do, very
much. You have to be able to
pick yourself up and go on
with your life and live.
I know, because I evolved
into that wife. Life is different
now. My first patrol was 88
days long. It seemed like for-
ever. Today, 88 days would be
a cakewalk. Now, I look for-
ward to having my schedule
and my time with girlfriends.
My life is great, and I have
accepted that my husband
comes-and-goes, in-and-out
of it.


My first track meet was
tomorrow. I did not
know what to expect.
My three team mates and
I ran the 800 meter medley
relay. Coach Smart said we
can win this race, just stay
loose. Easy for him I thought;
he had been a track star in
college who ran the hurdles.
I didn't want to let him
down or my team mates. I
was very anxious. What if I
don't get a good start? What if
I drop the baton? The coach
attempted to calm our fears
by saying over and over just
stay loose, do what you have
been trained to do and tomor-
row will take care of itself.
Noted author, educator
and pastor Charles Swindoll
says "yesterday is a canceled
check, tomorrow is a promis-
sory note and today is cash.
Spend what you have today!.
Worrying about tomorrow
and what it may bring can be
burdensome. It can immobi-
lize our plans and place our
dreams on hold. We can begin
to perceive things that really
aren't there and treat them as
though they are real, much
like a child who believes there
is a monster under her bed
and insists on sleeping with
her parents. If allowed to fes-

Now I take my husband to

while laughing with another
wife over a comment made. I

ask a different wife, "So where
do you want to go this deploy-
ment?" And we chat over our


ter this kind of apprehension
will turn our tomorrows into
unused yesterdays.
A good way to handle our
tomorrows is have a plan
for today, to understand our
todays and know how we
arrived at our successes as
well as our failures. With each
day comes new knowledge.
Put this new knowledge to
work for you.
As we trained each week
for the track meet, our coach
would introduce something
new, a new way to pace our
strides or to breath or mov-
ing ahead of another runner.
Each new knowledge pro-
vided additional energy to
win the race if we used it. It
was expected that each new

travel mugs and slippers.
I still look around and take
it all in. I see the young wife
holding onto her husband
for dear life, and for a split
second, I see myself and my
heart aches for her.
It takes time to get to where
I am. It takes practice and
a strong heart, because you
never know how strong you


thing we learned would be
placed into practice the same
day. There was no waiting for
tomorrow, no procrastination.
Runners who failed to run
to the best of their ability and
procrastinated in the class-
room and on the track would
soon incur the anger of coach
Smart. Along with "stay loose"
his other famous words were
"Push, push yourself. Give
me all you got."'
We never get around to
doing all the things we want
to do and should do. But that
is no reason to stop pushing
yourself. We cannot choose
the kind of adversities and
pain that will come our
way. We can choose to push
through and not throw in the
towel.
Tomorrow will come and
bring it's own set of opportu-
nities and problems. Have a
well-practiced plan for your
race. Stay alert and flexible
enough to seize the day and
cope with unforeseen situa-
tions.
Tomorrow came and the
foursome of Kemp, Trotter,
Fields and Jefferson won first
place in our first district track
meet. Keep training, stay
loose, and tomorrow will take
care of itself.

4 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, April 2, 2009


The USS Alaska (SSBN 732) is guided into an explosives handling wharf.


New shipmates


From the USS Alaska Navy Web site


USS Alaska (SSBN 732) is the seventh Trident Class Nuclear
Powered Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarine and the fourth United
States Navy ship to bear the name.
The keel for USS Alaska was laid on March 9, 1983. On Jan.
12, 1985, Mrs. Catherine Ann Stevens, the wife of Senator Ted
Stevens from Alaska, christened the ship during ceremonies
held in Groton, Conn.

Independence Day in 1987.


The USS Alaska brings a proud history

as it moves to join us at NSB Kings Bay


On Jan. 25, 1986, the ship was commissioned at the Naval
Underwater Systems Center, New London, Conn. Vice Admiral
B.M. Kauderer, USN, Commander, Submarine Force, U.S.Atlantic
Fleet, served as the Commissioning Officer while Senator Ted
Stevens of Alaska was the principal speaker.
In September 1986, USS Alaska began her voyage to Bangor,
Wash. Following a transit of the Panama Canal, the ship
embarked 96 fathers, sons and brothers and 11 Alaskans, includ-
ing Gov. Bill Sheffield, before proceeding on to Bangor.


USS Alaska arrived at its new homeport in October 1986 and
the Blue Crew conducted the first Strategic Deterrent Patrol in
early 1987. In July 1987, both crews visited their honorary home-
ports; Seward for the Blue Crew; Fairbanks and Fairbanks North
Star Borough for the Gold Crew.
With Submarine Squadron 17, USS Alaska conducted more
than 35 deterrent patrols. A key element of our nation's strategic
deterrent forces, she continues the proud tradition established
by her predecessors.

Sailors brave Arctic for training


By Lt. j.g. Megan Isaac
Ice Exercise Public Affairs
A small group of submari-
ners gathered at the Applied
Physics Laboratory Ice Station
to support operations during
Ice Exercise 2009, a training
exercise designed to test the
operational capabilities of
submarines in an arctic envi-
ronment.
The officer in tactical com-
mand of ICEX is Capt. Greg
Ott, the deputy director for
operations at Commander,
Submarine Force in Norfolk,
Va. Ott's role is to monitor the
operational activities of the
two participating submarines,
USS Annapolis (SSN 760) and
USS Helena (SSN 725), and to
ensure that all the testing runs
smoothly.
Assisting him, and special-
izing in monitoring the weap-
ons testing and approving
any changes to the tests that
need to be made, are Cmdr.
Steve Benke, the force navi-
gator at COMSUBFOR, and
Royal Australian Navy Cmdr.
Glen Miles, the tactical weap-
ons development officer for
Commander, Submarine Force
Pacific Fleet.


"Submariners know that
the Arctic is a different envi-
ronment," Benke said. "But to
actually see the performance
of a weapon in this environ-
ment, and in real time, has
been an eye-opening experi-
ence."
The submarines operate
within a range that is mapped
out on a grid in the command
hut. By ensuring that the range
is always accurate, the team's
range safety officers have reli-
able situational awareness of
where the submariners are at
any time. The RSOs are also
the first point of contact for
the submarines if there is an
emergency.
The closest hospital to the
camp is in Anchorage, Alaska,
so if specialized treatment is
needed, there are physician's
assistants at a clinic in Prudhoe
Bay. The medical officers do
not regularly see extreme
cold-related injuries and were
briefed in advance of some of
the unique injuries they might
see, such as frostbite and lung
freezing. Though cold weath-
er injuries and wildlife are a
threat, the biggest things to


worry about are accidents and
cardiac arrest in the extreme
temperatures.
At Prudhoe Bay, which is a
200-nautical mile plane flight,
a logistics team keeps track of
everything and everyone who
travels between the mainland
and APLIS.
Anyone who is travelling


to or from the camp must be
in full arctic gear, so they are
suited up in the hangar in
Prudhoe Bay. Also, all of the
food, building supplies and
weapons that are being tested
must go through Prudhoe Bay
and be stored properly to pro-
tect them from the cold tem-
peratures.

From the Georgia Governors Office
of Highway Safety

The Georgia legislature has
voted overwhelmingly to sup-
port Gov. Sonny Perdue's goal
to make Georgia roads safer.
March 25, the Senate passed
the SuperSpeeder bill that
would save lives by target-
ing the worst-of-the-worst of
speeders on Georgia highways
with higher fines and reinstate-
ment fees designed to support
the trauma centers that treat
Georgia's crash victims.
Under the new law, motor-
ists who speed at 85-miles-
an-hour or more on multiple
lane highways, or at 75-miles-
an-hour or more on two-lane
roads, would have to pay $200
in fines to the state, above the


cost of any speeding tickets.
"We know by pass-
ing Governor Perdue's
SuperSpeeder legislation we
will save lives in Georgia;' said
Director Bob Dallas of the
Georgia Governor's Office of
Highway Safety. Most motor-
ists are unaware that 60 per-
cent of Georgia trauma admis-
sions are victims of vehicle
crashes.
Under SuperSpeeder, high-
risk drivers who have their
licenses suspended for exces-
sive points also would face
safe driver course require-
ments and higher reinstate-
ment fees. The fines and
points are all designed to
change the high-risk behav-
ior of high-risk drivers to be
called SuperSpeeders.

VITA offers tax filing assistance


From Kings Bay Volunteer Income
Tax Assistance

Manyreceived checks/direct
deposits last year of up to
$1,200 for a married couple fil-
ing jointly and $300 per quali-
fying child. If you did, you have
no tax liability or additional
tax benefit unless, as IRS deli-
cately calls it, you experienced
a "major life change" in 2008.
Your stimulus payment was
based on your 2007 tax return
information. Consequently
if you did not file a 2007 tax
return or something happened
in 2008 such as the arrival of a
new baby, you likely qualify
for what is referred to as a


Recovery Rebate Credit. Some
of the major factors that could
qualify you for the Recovery
Rebate Credit include:
Your financial situation
changed dramatically from
2007 to 2008;
mYou did not file a 2007 tax
return;
Your family gained an
additional qualifying child in
2008; or
You were claimed as a
dependent on someone else's
return in 2007, but cannot
be claimed as dependent by
someone else in 2008.
How can you find out if you
qualify for this recovery rebate
credit?


IRS has provided a detailed
Web site dedicated to this
topic. You can get all kinds
of good information at www.
irs.gov/newsroom/article/
0,,id=186065,00.html.
If you qualify, your credit
will be added to your income
tax refund rather than sent
separately. But the good news
is that you did not lose out on
your portion of the stimulus
payment.
The Kings Bay VITA is open
to all active duty, dependents
and retired personnel. The
hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Monday through Friday. If you
would like to make an appoint-
ment, call (912) 573-9546.

What's your most memorable prank or stunt? uabituee


Pranksters have been in lurking for the past 364 days, plot-
ting for the next big event. April Fool's Day is around
the corner. And people are planning to fill up cars with


balloons or other things. Woopie cushion sales are on a rise.
Though I have never been a big prankster, I do remember a
bunch of football buddies picking up a friend's Chevette and



a1r


moving it 10 feet over in a Kmart parking lot once.
Some of Kings Bay's prankster's shared memorable April

Registration opened
April 1 for the Mid-Atlantic
Region Morale, Welfare and
Recreation Department's 9th
annual all-military Wilderness
Challenge.
The Wilderness Challenge
takes place Oct. 8 to 10 in
the heart of the Appalachian
Mountains and on the New
and Gauley Rivers in West
Virginia.
More than 300 military peo-
ple representing teams from
around the world are expected
to compete. Only the first 60
teams will compete, so teams
are encouraged to register
early.
"The MWR Wilderness
Challenge continues to bring
together the best athletes in


the armed forces and puts
them to the test;'," said Michael
Bond, event coordinator. "The
competition gets tougher and
tougher every year."
Bond encourages teams to
register early to reserve their
space in the competition.
The challenge contains a
series of six outdoor adven-
ture races in a team format
designed to enhance camara-
derie, competition and team
spirit among all five branches
of the armed services.
Teams participating in this
year's challenge will compete
in an 8-K mountain run, a 14-
mile mountain bike race, a 14-
mile forced hike through the
mountains, a 13-mile white-
water raft race on the Gauley
River, a half-mile swim in the
swift moving waters of the
Gauley River and a 7-mile


kayak race on the New River.
Last year's challenge winner
was a Coast Guard Team from
Boston, Mass.
"The Army and the Navy
have yet to win the Wilderness
Challenge," Bond stated. "This
is a great opportunity for a
team from one of these ser-
vices to step up and win big.'
"It is not an easy competi-
tion, and only the strong sur-
vive, so the winning team will
be the best of the best in out-
door recreation and physical
endurance," Bond concluded.
Registration is open to
all branches of the military.
Teams must be comprised
of four active duty military,
one of which must be female.
Registration can be made
online at www.wilderness-
challenge.net or by calling

By John J. Kruzel
American Forces Press Service
The United States has been
in close consultation with
NATO allies as it completes an
evaluation of the strategy in
Afghanistan, President Barack
Obama said March 25.
After a meeting at the White
House with NATO Secretary
General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer,
the president said the United
States expects to share its
analysis with alliance coun-
terparts.
A defense official this month
said the review is likely to
be distributed among allies
ahead of the NATO summit in


early April.
"We believe thatwe are going
to be able to ensure that the
NATO members who've made
so many sacrifices and have
been working so hard already
are reinvigorated, and that the
coordination that's going to be
taking place will make it even
more effective for us as we
complete a successful NATO
mission," Obama said of the
Afghan strategy review.
The summit, to take place
April 3 and 4 in Strasbourg,
France, and Kehl, Germany,
also coincides with the alli-
ance's 60th anniversary, which
Obama said is a testament to


S *II I I r.0


NATO's quality.
"It is a testimony to the
strength of the trans-Atlantic
alliance, a testimony to the
effectiveness of NATO in cre-
ating stability and peace and
prosperity, laying the ground-
work for so much that has
taken place over the last sev-
eral years," he said.
Obama said he and de Hoop
Scheffer are confident that the
NATO summit could produce
new processes to make the
alliance stronger and more
effectively coordinate efforts
in Afghanistan.
The summit's agenda also
could include issues beyond


the scope of the NATO mission
in Afghanistan.
"We have a set of challeng-
es that require NATO to shift
from the 20th century to the
21st century; issues of ter-
rorism, failed states, nuclear
proliferation, a whole host of
new challenges as well as the
traditional role that NATO has
played in preserving the terri-
torial integrity of NATO mem-
bers Obama said.
In their meeting, the presi-


.DA O4


dent and the secretary general
also discussed the role NATO
plays regarding Russia.

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, April 2, 2009


MCPON praises


NSB's Ferrell


By MC1 (EXW) Jennifer
Villalovos
Master Chief Petty Officer of the
Navy Public Affairs

A Sailor aboard the subma-
rine USS West Virginia (SSBN
736) received accolades from
the Navy's senior enlisted
leader for setting the standard
for the entire fleet.
Master Chief Petty Officer
of the Navy Rick West called
Machinist's Mate Fireman
Corey Ferrell and congratu-
lated him for his efforts to take
care of shipmates.
Ferrell received the Navy
Marine Corps Achievement
Medal for talking four intox-
icated Sailors out of getting
behind the wheel after attend-
ing a command function.
Ferrell had volunteered to
act as a designated driver for
friends during a command
holiday party in December
2008. As he got ready to leave,
he noticed four intoxicated
strangers discussing who was
in the best condition to drive.
Ferrell intervened and discov-
ered the four were all senior
to him and were attached
to another command. Even
though he was outranked,
Ferrell stood firm and pre-
vented the four Sailors from
driving.
"I didn't want them on the
road. I didn't want myself,
them or anyone else to get
hurt," Ferrell said.


"Leadership can come from
every level, this is a perfect
example of that and what I
expect from every Sailor in our
great Navy," said West.
West also said that as the
Navy leans forward to reduce
driving under the influence
and alcohol-related incidents,
he believes other junior Sailors
like Ferrell have opportunities
for significant impact.
"Our second and third class
petty officers will have the
greatest impact. I think they
can really drive these numbers
down. I've been there, and I
know the impact you can have.
I'm challenging every second
or third class petty officer to
lead those junior to you to
further reduce our numbers.
I know they can and will suc-
ceed," West said.
The Navy and local com-
mands have many programs
in place to provide alternatives
to drinking and driving.
The HERO Campaign pro-
motes the use of a designated
driver and was established by
the family of Ensign John Elliott
who was killed by a drunken
driver in 2000, two months
after graduating from the
United States Naval Academy.
HERO was named after Elliot's
position as a human educa-
tion resource officer during his
time at the Naval Academy.
According to the HERO cam-
paign's Web site, the program's
mission is to prevent drunk

Day at the Pentagon Hall of Heroes.


driving fatalities, injuries and
accidents nationwide by pro-
moting the use of designated
drivers and reminding the
public to drive sober and not
to let friends drive drunk.
In a recent personal-for
message released by the Chief
of Naval Operations, Adm.
Gary Roughead told com-
manding officers that the Navy
has made significant progress
in addressing and preventing
alcohol abuse, but it is still the
common factor in many disci-
plinary problems.
With the help from leader-
ship, Roughead said he wants
to reduce all alcohol related
incidents by 25 percent in
2009. He also emphasized that
the Right Spirit Campaign is


one tool to reach that goal.
Right Spirit, launched in
1996, is used to get the mes-
sage out to Sailors that it is
acceptable not to drink and
to de-glamorize alcohol bev-
erage consumption and elimi-
nate alcohol abuse.
The key principles of the
Right Spirit campaign are lead-
ership responsibility, com-
mand responsibility, shipmate
responsibility and personal
responsibility. According to
NAVADMIN 061/09 the Navy
has seen a 33 percent reduc-
tion in alcohol-related inci-
dents and a 23 percent reduc-
tion in DUI/DWI incidents
since FY-04 with the help of
these principals.
Public transportation such


as buses and taxis are always
an alternative for drinking and
driving, but the best method is
to have a plan prior to drink-
ing and designate a driver
who will not drink or use the
resources from the command
assigned.
Beyond the direct fines man-
dated by the court, offenders
can also expect to pay much
higher automobile insurance
rates, often for years after a
license is reinstated. Studies
focusing on various states
around the country have found
the average cost of a DUI con-
viction ranges from $5,000 to
$20,000. This doesn't take into
account the amount of money
lost from being reduced in
paygrade.

Affairs

commitment" to our nation's

participants, including many
who served in the current con-


flicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
Eric K. Shinseki said that he
will attend this year's event
and is "looking forward to
celebrating the triumph of
the human spirit over both
physical adversity and fear of
failure." He believes that the
event, and the volunteers who
work with Veterans during it,
"give so many young Veterans
a glimpse of what is possible if
they keep hope alive. I know


of few greater gifts one can
bestow on others."
The clinic is an annual
rehabilitation program open
to U.S. military Veterans with
traumatic brain injuries, spi-
nal cord injuries, orthopedic
amputations, visual impair-
ments, certain neurological
problems and other disabili-
ties, who receive care at a VA
medical facility or military
treatment center. It is the larg-
est adaptive event of its kind in


the world.
An estimated 200 certified
ski instructors for the disabled
and several current and former
members of the U.S. Disabled
Ski Team serve as instructors
to meet the unique needs of
the participants.
At the six-day event, Veterans
also learn rock climbing, scuba
diving, snowmobiling, curl-
ing and sled hockey. They can
also participate in additional
events and workshops.


Marines


tighten


body fat


standards

By Sgt. Judith Carver
Marine Corps Base Quantico
Marines who do not meet
body fat percentage and mili-
tary appearance standards will
be processed for assignment
to the Marine Corps Body
Composition and Military
Appearance Program accord-
ing to MARADMIN 145/09
released March 2
"ThepurposeofMARADMIN
145/09 was to clarify Marine
Corps Order 6110.3 on Marine
Corps Body Composition
MilitaryAppearance Program,"
said Brian McGuire, the physi-
cal readiness program analyst
with Training and Education
Command G-3. "Since the
order was released in August,
feedback we received from the
fleet indicated that clarifica-
tion of some BCP and MAP
policies was needed."
According to the
MARADMIN, the 60-day noti-
fication and 60-day cautionary
periods for body composition
and military appearance have
ended; resulting in adverse fit-
ness reports for Marines who
do not meet the standards.
This can affect a Marines pro-
motion or reenlistment if they
do not meet the standards.
"The general feedback from
MARADMIN 145/09 has been
positive," said McGuire. 'And
the MARADMIN had the
intended affect of clarifying
the BCP and MAP policies."
Since the release of
MARADMIN 145/09, addi-
tional guidance was released
in MARADMIN 156/09 "to
provide immediate guidance
for fitness report completion'."
The emphasis of
MARADMIN 145/09 is that
maintenance of Marine Corps
body composition standards is
a continuous process and not
tied to any event or period of
the year, said McGuire.
