Navy listening underwater


... for whales


Facility studies marine
mammal behavior

By Bob Freeman
Office of the Oceanographer of the Navy

The U.S. Navy is sponsoring
research that seeks to better under-
stand how marine mammals respond
to human-made undersea sounds.
Some of that research is tak-
ing place at Navy acoustic ranges
like the Atlantic Undersea Test and
Evaluation Center in the Bahamas.


AUTEC's research is sponsored
by the Chief of Naval Operations
Environmental Readiness Division.
"The goal of our program is to
study animals in their natural envi-
ronment through the application of
passive acoustics, which means we
listen for the vocalizations that are
made by animals and then try to use
detections of vocalization as a proxy
for the behavior," said Dave Moretti,
the principal investigator for marine
mammal monitoring on the Navy's
ocean-listening ranges, in an April 21
interview on Pentagon Web Radio's


audio webcast Armed with Science: to listen to undersea creatures, like

beaked whales being the most preva-

"At AUTEC, to our knowledge, there
haven't been any mass strandings of
beaked whales ... even though they
use active sonar repeatedly through-
out the year," he said.

battle it out


Iron Chefs meet at
Kings Bay; winners
head to Washington

By Gordon Jackson
Courtesy of The Times-Union
Navy cooks learned Friday
that it's easier to prepare
meals for hundreds of Sailors
than for four judges watching
their every move from prepa-
ration to presentation.
Six teams from as far as
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba,
gathered at
Kings Bay Naval
Submarine "It's t
Base, where detai
they were given
little informa- help yc
tion other than on to
the 10 ingredi- compel
ents they would D
be required to
use in the com-
petition that is
based on TV's
Iron Chefprogram.
They were told three secret
ingredients would be revealed
30 minutes prior to the start
of the three-hour competition.
Then, it would be up to them
to use their creativity to pre-
pare meals for the four judges.
The two-Sailor teams quick-
ly learned to improvise when
they were told the secret ingre-
dients were flounder, scallops
and pasta sheets.
Competitors were told they
could ask questions, which
was helpful because most of
the cooks had never filleted a
flounder.


"I said to myself, 'Oh my
gosh,' said Christina Plouff,
a petty officer first class at
Mayport, when she learned
she'd have to fillet a floun-
der. "It was a lot easier than I
thought."
During the competition,
cooks were judged on food
safety, sanitation, organiza-
tional skills, work habits, utili-
zation of ingredients, cooking
skills, craftsmanship, portion
size, taste and presentation.
Judges took copious notes as

Blog gets underway


From Defense Media Activity
Anacostia


The Navy launched its offi-
cial blog April 22 at navylive.
dodlive.mil with an inaugural
post penned by the Secretary
of the Navy, Ray Mabus
"In the 10
months I
have served
as Secretary,
I've had the
opportunity -
to travel to
many of our
ships, sta-
tions and Mabus
Marine units
around the world and I've met
tens of thousands of Sailors
and Marines," said Mabus in
his blog post. "At every com-
mand, I am constantly inspired
by the courage, professional-
ism, dedication to duty, and
commitment to our country
demonstrated by every Sailor
and Marine."'


The Navy Live blog, hosted
on the DoD Live blog hosting
service, was launched to be
a platform for talking about
issues and important matters
confronting the Department
of the Navy.
"It will provide an oppor-
tunity for the senior leader-
ship of the Secretariat and the
Navy to communicate directly
with both the Navy and the
public at large, without hav-
ing to resort to the formality
of a naval message or press
release," said Mabus in his
post. "Through the blog, we
have the opportunity to begin
a conversation in plain lan-
guage about issues of the day
and what the Navy and Marine
Corps are doing about them,
as well as solicit constructive
feedback on our thoughts and
policies."
The blog is intended to tell
the Navy story through the
voices of both leadership and
deck plate Sailors.

NMCRS Fund Drive Month goes on
The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Socity annual Fund
Drive is going on this month, and you can help by donat-
ing. See your Command Fund Drive Representative for
more information or call your Kings Bay NMCRS at 573-
3928.

Navy-Marine Relief seeks volunteers
Volunteering at your local Navy-Marine Corps Relief
Office may add years to your life? A 10-year study at the
University of Michigan found that people who did no
volunteer work died at an earlier age than those who vol-
unteered at least once a week. Volunteering has added
benefits such as a sense of accomplishment, a dose of
self-respect and a boost of self-confidence. It can serve
as a reminder that, relatively speaking, your troubles
might not be as severe as they seem. NMCRS volunteers
are men and women, civilian and military, active duty
and retired, officer and enlisted, and their family mem-
bers. Don't forget that April is the NMCRS Fund Drive. If
you are able to donate, please do so by contacting your
NMCRS command representative or by calling 573-3928.

Veterans of moving reveal their secrets


This final installment on
moving with the mili-
tary is a compilation
of wisdom from seasoned
spouses with a few Permanent
Change of Station moves
under their belt. Together,
these spouses have made
168 moves. I asked each one
question, "What is the best
PCS moving advice you would
give another spouse?" Here
are their answers.
* Beth B., 16 moves: "Self-
care! Get your nails done,
have lunch with your friends.
Make sure you take time to
take care of you and your
needs so you can be your best
for your family."
* Eva May T., 15 moves:
"Make a binder, with sheet
protectors, and place all your
important papers in it then
put it in the car ... NOW.
(insurance policy, orders,
move paperwork, bank info,
etc.)"
* Cathy R., 16 moves: "Take
pictures of your belongings
with a digital camera. Take
photos from several angles.
Make sure the date/time func-
tion is on. This is a life-saver
in case of damage."
* Cheryl C., 14 moves: "Take


good care of your movers!
Provide beverages and donuts
for breakfast, order pizza or
sub sandwiches for lunch.
They'll take very good care of
you."
* Tasha L., mother of 7, 11
moves: "Pack a backpack for
each child in the car with
games, puzzles, favorite com-
fort item, a bit of their own
spending money and an age-
appropriate trip planner. Your
investment in planning your
children's trip will pay off with
miles of harmonious travel.
* Linda M., mother of 8, 12
moves: "Turn the road trip
between duty stations into
an adventure. Get the chil-
dren excited about the trip


by researching route, hotels,
tourist attractions and more.
Have one child be the "mile-
age tracker," another be the
trip journalist, the official
photographer and yet another
can be the official "fun boss."
Holly S., 18 moves: "Ask
movers to load truck from the
farthest room in the house.
Have your cleaning supplies
and equipment ready. Clean
"behind" the movers. By the
time the truck is loaded, your
house can be cleaned and
the vacuum cleaner, mop and
broom can be the last things
loaded on the truck.
* Roger L., 13 moves:
"Communicate your route
with family and friends so
they know your full travel
plans. This will insure safety
and peace of mind for you
and your family on many lev-
els."
* Donna M., 12 moves:
"In your move planning and
budget, be sure to add a trip
to your mechanic for a safety
check on your vehicles. Check
all fluids, get an oil change,
inspect brakes, replace wind-
shield wipers and make sure
tires are up to the trip. You'll
be glad you did!"


* Talia H., 9 moves: "Take
the move classes at your local
FFSC! Enroll your children in
the classes for them as well.
The classes help you organize
your move with confidence. I
take it every single move."
* Angela W., 15 moves:
"Don't let your service mem-
ber's uniforms wind up on the
moving truck. Set them aside,
put a sheet over them and
guard them with your very life
(painful memory)."
* Debbie Y. 17 moves:
"Breathe. Relax. You will get
it all done. Breathe, relax ...
we may not chose when we
move or where we move to,
but we certainly chose to suf-
fer through or to tackle this
as another adventure, full of
opportunities, experiences
and memories. Grab the best,
ladies!"
How do I top such experi-
enced advice from such sea-
soned spouses? I hope your
PCS move, while quite a job,
will be an adventure for you!
Our next topic is self-care.
Join us as we continue our
Savvy Spouse series.

It's Washington or bust for me and mine


h, the chaos of Navy
Life. My husband
received orders for a
"hot fill" job the last week
of November 2009. He then
moved 3,000 miles across
the country to Washington
the second week of January.
Since we have school-age
children and own a house, I
have stayed behind to sell the
house and let the kids finish
their school year. It sounded
good when the husband and
I sat down and talked about it
one evening, but now I think
we must have been drinking
more than tea and coffee.
Do you ever have that
moment where your heart
sinks into your stomach, and
you say to yourself, "What was
I thinking?!" My husband was
on sea duty for seven years,
two months and 23 days
straight, not that I was count-
ing. Finally, he is on shore
duty and we are 3,000 miles
apart. Some would look at us
and think, "Wow, they must
really not like each other!" To
top it off, the Navy did not "do
this" to us.
We chose this. Yep. We
could have stayed right here


in our beautiful home, sur-
rounded by our friends, but
we decided as a family that we
wanted to explore the rest of
the world. So, we are moving
to Washington! Well, the hus-
band moved to Washington.
We will see if the kids and I
ever get there. I know I should
be optimistic and point out
the good, but honestly this
stinks. He's been living there
for three months now without
us, and I feel our shore duty
time we are supposed to have
together is ticking away.
I don't regret our decision
to move. In fact, I am still very
excited. It's just when I go to


bed alone every night, I think
to myself that so far shore
duty is very similar to sea
duty. It has not been fun.
Do you know what else isn't
fun? Getting a house ready to
sell, then listing and showing
it. Not only have I made my
house look so amazing that
I don't want to sell it. But I
stage it like a museum every
day, only for people to call in
the middle of dinner or when
I have some major project
started. I have this theory that
If I stopped cleaning, more
people would call to see it.
I'm just not gutsy enough to
try it out.
So now after venting, I want
to acknowledge that of course
there are worse things in the
world. I am very happy for my
husband who is not deployed.
I am grateful for these oppor-
tunities, and I am blessed
with a family who is happy
and healthy despite being
apart.
I have faith that everything
will work out, that my house
will sell and soon I will be
writing about my moving
adventures. But it's hard not
to give in to that little feeling


in the back of my heart that
says, "What were you think-
ing?!" In moments of weak-
ness, I've tried asking my
husband to just move back.
But he seems to think that it
would look bad in the Navy's
eyes to request such a thing. I
guess he is right.
I've lived in this little town
for more than seven years.
It's safe. I need to let go of
that. And, if I don't move, I
will miss out on everything in
Washington. I've never been
west of Kansas! This is an
opportunity that I shouldn't
pass up. I love the outdoors
and can't wait to go hiking,
kayaking and explore the
mountains and parks. I know
I'll love it. But, the unknown
can be a little scary.
I'm sure a lot of you at some
point will have the opportu-
nity to play it safe or take a
chance. Whatever that chance
may be, make sure you don't
pass it up because of that feel-
ing of caution. You only live
once, right?

St. Augustine has many great, old attractions


cooking for a weekend
getaway for just the two
of you? Look no further
than St. Augustine, Florida. St.
Augustine's rich history and
beautiful architecture make a
short weekend away feel like a
trip back in time.
For a romantic stroll,
browse the downtown shops
and art galleries. The local art
and food is rife with romance.
Downtown in the evening
is even better. Live music
wafts from every restaurant
and pub, and the lights and
brick streets take you back to
another era.
If you prefer a spookier
stroll, try one of the walk-
ing ghost tours. The Original
Ghost Tours of St. Augustine
winds you through the
downtown streets to the


Castillo de San Marcos, on
to the city gates and then to
two antiquated cemeteries.
Ghost Tours of St. Augustine
also offers a riding tour. We
enjoyed the ease of the walk-
ing tour and some in our
group even caught paranor-


mal activity on camera.
The Castillo de San Marcos
takes you back to the found-
ing era of St. Augustine. At
the fort you learn about
military life in colonial times,
watch a cannon firing, and
enjoy beautiful views of the
bay, inlet and the Atlantic
beyond.
St. Augustine Scenic Cruise
takes you around Matanzas
Bay where you can relish
views of the city as well as the
old lighthouse. The double-
decker boat allows you a seat
on top of the boat where you
can sip a cold drink as you
relax and watch dolphins,
birds and fish, as well as the
city skyline.
The Lightner Museum
offers a fascinating view of
American life in the Gilded


Age. The architecture of the
building is incredible and
beautiful. And then you see
the exhibits. There are three
floors of various collections
including musical boxes,
nature, clothing, buttons,
ceramics, cut glass and furni-
ture, just to name a few. The
Lightner Museum offers a 40
percent admission discount to
active military personnel and
their families, $6 for adults
instead of $10.
You can't visit St. Augustine
without climbing the 219
steps to the top of the old St.
Augustine lighthouse. It is
truly a step back to a more
romantic time. The view is
unparalleled. The keeper's
house also is open to tour.

Iraqi security improves


By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
The recent weeks were very
good ones for security prog-
ress in Iraq, with two al-Qai-
da leaders being killed in an
Iraqi-led operation, Pentagon
Press Secretary Geoff Morrell
said April 21.
And Iraqi forces followed
up their successes by arresting
another senior al-Qaida lead-
er in northern Iraq, Morrell
noted at a Pentagon news con-
ference.
"This is not a good time ... to
be a leader of al-Qaida in Iraq,"
Morrell said. "There's not a lot
of longevity in those jobs."
Although U.S. forces part-
nered with Iraqi forces for the
operations, Morrell stressed,
Iraqi security forces found and
exploited the intelligence that
made them possible and were
in the lead of both operations.
"We have capabilities that
we can bring to bear that
they have not yet developed
fully," he said. "It was a great
joint mission that brought
down three people who were
responsible for the deaths of
scores and scores of innocent

by the end of August -20and
the United States is deter-
mined not to make the same
mistakes made in Afghanistan
in the 1980s, Morrell said.
In August, Operation Iraqi
Freedom ends and Operation
New Dawn begins, with U.S.
forces in "advise and assist"
roles.
All U.S. forces will be out
of Iraq by the ending of 2011.
Supplemental funding for fis-
cal 2010 calls for $1 billion
for Iraqi security forces. That
money woulneed goto expedite
building capabilities in Iraqi
security forces. The current
Iraqi budgeting process prob-
ably doesn't have the means
to execute spending on the
things they need to invest in
as quickly as the United States


can do it by spending this
money, Morrell explained.
Defense Secretary Robert M.
Gates fully supports this spend-
ing, Morrell told reporters.
"I think he is very leery of
repeating the final scene in
'Charlie Wilson's War,'" he said,
referring to a movie that depict-
ed the unsuccessful efforts of a
Texas congressman to get his
colleagues to invest a few mil-
lion dollars in Afghanistan after
Congress invested billions in
paramilitary forces that drove
the Soviet Union out of the
country.
"It was a case of us being
penny wise and pound fool-
ish," Morrell said. "And the
secretary believes we've been
paying the price ever since.
We turned our backs on
Afghanistan. We turned our
backs on Pakistan. Al-Qaida ...
and other terrorists were able
to take root there, and obvi-
ously we were struck on 9/11."
The United States has lost
more than 4,400 service-
members in Iraq, with more
than 32,000 others wounded.
American taxpayers spent
hundreds of billions of dollars
in the country.

Ombudsman program enters year 40


By Darren Harrison
Naval District Washington


Whether assisting fami-
lies moving to a new area,
or providing support during
a deployment, Navy spouses
have been volunteering for
almost four decades through
the Navy's Ombudsman
Program.
"When families respond
to the challenges of deploy-
ments, natural disasters or
family emergencies, ombuds-
men are there to provide guid-
ance and to help them regain
a sense of normalcy. They
help families find the answers
to their questions, promot-
ing their resiliency and self
reliance," Master Chief Petty
Officer of the Navy Rick D.
West said in a recorded state-
ment recognizing the contri-
bution of the ombudsmen as
part of U.S. National Volunteer

swim up onto a beach.
"[At AUTEC] you don't have
mass strandings even when
sonar operations take place,"
said Moretti, "And, it's one of
the things that we're trying to
tease out of the data, to try to
understand why that is."
Moretti said that ships are on
the range at scheduled times
and are precisely tracked.
"The sensors are really set
up to track anything under the
water, but anything on the sur-
face is also tracked," he said.
AUTEC has the ability to
correlate data related to the
ocean-going mammals with
vessel traffic, Moretti said.
"So now we can get a record
of both animal behavior and
also a precise record of ship
tracks in open ocean waters,"
he noted, "and in cases like
the Northwest Providence
Channel, putting those data
sets together is very, very dif-
ficult."
To ensure continuity of data
when the animals are not
vocalizing or out of range of the
sensors, Moretti said, selected
animals are tagged with tran-
sponders that allow satellites
to track their movement. This
is a cooperative effort with rep-
resentatives from the National
Marine Fisheries Service and
the Bahamas Marine Mammal


Week, which
began April
18. "Mission
readiness
is directly
tied to fam-
ily readiness,
and family
readiness is
directly tied Zumwalt
to the selfless
dedication of our extraordi-
nary ombudsman," West said.
The Ombudsman Program
was introduced to the U.S.
Navy, Sept. 14, 1970, by then-
Chief of Naval Operations
Adm. Elmo Zumwalt. Zumwalt
adapted the program from a
19th century Scandinavian
custom originally established
to give private citizens an ave-
nue to express their concerns
to high government officials.
"The program started on a
small and informal scale and
has since moved to a very for-

Research Organization.
In addition, he said,
representatives from the
Woods Hole Oceanographic
Institution in Massachusetts
and St. Andrews University of
Scotland are assisting in the
program.
Another type of tag used in
the program is the D-tag, a
digital recorder developed at
Woods Hole that provides data
on the pitch, roll and depth of
the animal's movement.
"Those tags stay on about 19
to 20 hours," Moretti said, "but
they give very precise ... very
pristine data on the move-
ment of animals within that
time span."'
Moretti explained that
the data they are gathering
has provided much needed
insights into the private lives
of whales, particularly the
elusive, deep-diving beaked
whales.
"I think what people forget
is that we're trying to study
animals in their natural envi-
ronment, but these animals
live in the deep ocean and
they don't come to the surface
often," he said. "It's extremely
difficult to study their behav-
ior because it's an environ-
ment we're just not equipped
to deal with well."'
Besides learning about
behavioral response of whales
to man-made sound, Moretti
said, the research also is
designed to understand the
health of the whales.


mal, standardized training,"
said Ombudsman Program
manager for Commander,
Naval Installations Command
Kathy Rock. "The policies and
instructions are constant-
ly being revised to meet the
needs of the Navy family at a
set period of time."'
There are presently 63
ombudsmen in Naval District
Washington and more than
4,000 ombudsmen worldwide.
The Navy requires there be at
least one ombudsman per 250
service members.
The Ombudsman Program
is a command-based program
with each commanding officer
tailoring the program to meet
the needs of the families. The
commanding officer officially
appoints an ombudsman who
then undergoes 25 hours of
basic initial training.
Following their initial train-
ing each ombudsman is then


required to do six, three-
hour advanced training ses-
sions a year on topics such
as child abuse prevention and
sexual assault intervention.
Additionally, ombudsmen are
expected to attend monthly
assembly meetings where
ombudsmen are provided cur-
rent information on programs
or referrals that can benefit
families and training.
According to Rock, for this
year as of April 14, the Navy
has already saved $523,464.75
by having volunteer ombuds-
man. In 2009, the Navy saved
an estimated $1.4 million
based on if the service had to
pay the volunteers a wage of
$18.77 an hour.
"Each ombudsman spends
about 800 hours a year
through volunteering which
calculates out to an equated
savings of about $15,000 per
Ombudsman," Riddle said.

Element East Detachment Southeast
More than 800 volunteers from
Naval Submarine Base Kings
Bay were on hand to support
the 14th Annual Georgia Area
16 Special Olympics, April 21.
These volunteers included
Sailors, Marines, Department
of Defense contractors, base
employees, and many others.
These individuals acted as bud-
dies to over 500 athletes from
eight different counties through-
out Georgia.
The athletes made the annual
trip to Naval Submarine Base
Kings Bay to show off their
skills in a wide variety of events
including the 100 meter dash,
tennis ball throw, volley-
ball and standing long
jump.
"This is a good oppor-
tunity for our Sailors,
Marines and Coast
Guardsmen to look
at what's outside the
fence line" said Naval
Submarine Base Kings
Bay Command Master
Chief Jimmy Schubert. "I
think it is very, very impor-
tant for them to see how
involved our community
is with our base, and how
involved our base is with
our community."
The event started with
the participants being
cheered on by volunteers
as they exited the buses
and gathered on the field.


The Marine Corps color guard
preformed colors then led a
parade of proud participants
marching around the track.
Missile Technician 1st Class
Anthony Bertsch and athlete
Vanessa Lopez lit the Olympic
torch and Commander Jeffrey
M. Pafford, executive officer
of NSB announced, "Let the
games begin!"
"It's a highlight in the chil-
dren's lives and it lets them
know that they are special," said
event coordinator, Religious
Petty Officer 1st Class Treva
Stapleton. "They get to partici-
pate in things that otherwise
they may not get to participate
in. It's a time for them to shine."
The event concluded with
each of the athletes receiving
ribbons and medals that they
displayed proudly around their
necks.

Marines facilitate change through ag program


By Lance Cpl. James W.
Clark
Regimental Combat Team -7, 1st
Marine Division Public Affairs

A little more than a week
since it first began, the Marjah
Accelerated Agricultural
Transition program has begun
to gain momentum in Marjah,
Afghanistan, April 14.
The program is one of sever-
al others, including programs
provided by non-governmen-
tal organizations, which the
Afghan government and coali-
tion forces are conducting in
order to foster agricultural
growth.
The programs are designed
to assist farmers and landown-
ers in their transition to alter-
nate and licit crops. In many,
but not all cases, this involves
the switch from opium, the
illicit product of poppy culti-
vation, to other crops that will
allow participants to make a
living, legally.
Designed as a short term
solution meant to give the
city's citizens a leg to stand on,
MAAT is aimed specifically at
residents of Marjah and only
for the current harvest season,
in order to stabilize the city's
market and provide residents
with a viable and legal source
of income.
"We are trying to ease the
transition from illicit crops
to licit in order to prepare
for next year," explained
Maj. David Fennell the Civil
Affairs team leader attached


to 1st Battalion, 6th Marine
Regiment. "We want the
Afghan people to understand
that we're trying to help them
transition even though we're
interfering with [the opium]
market."'
The registration for the
program is a multistep pro-
cess where those wishing to
participate first sign up with
the NGO's, from whom they
will receive seeds and fertil-
izer. Next, they can choose
to participate in the Marjah
Accelerated Agricultural
Transition program. If they
decide to take part in MAAT,
they will register where they
live, the amount of land they
farm on, and what crop they
grow.
Participants will be issued
ID cards as well as vouchers,
which will be used later on
when they run across Marine
patrols, who will look in on
those who have signed up for
the program, in order to gauge
whether or not they have made
the change to their target crop.
If MAAT-registered land
owners make the change to licit
crops, they will then receive
payment, 3,000 Afghanis and
new tools, including wheel-
barrows, shovels, and a new
water pump.
To date approximately 1,000
people have registered for the
program, Fennell explained,
adding that although the turn-
out wasn't as large as was first
anticipated, it is seen as a good
sign in light of reports from

locals stating that residents
have received threats from the
Taliban.
Many of which came in the
form of night letters, which are
written warnings delivered in
the evening, forbidding locals
from interacting with coalition


forces.
"We're here to make a good
will gesture," said Fennell.
"The thing I personally like
about [MAAT] is that the
Taliban don't like it. Once we
started this, reports of night
letters and death threats arose,


Petraeus: Killings show Taliban's true values


By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service

The assassination of the
deputy mayor of Kandahar,
Afghanistan, as he prayed in
a mosque reflects the values
of a barbaric enemy, the com-
mander of U.S. Central
Command said in a statement
released April 21.
Azizullah Yarmal was
attending evening prayers
April 19 when a death squad
entered the mosque and shot
him dead before escaping.
In his statement, Army


Gen. David ,
H. Petraeus
said the mur-
der "demon-
strated the '
Taliban's bar- -
barism."
"That they
would kill this
Afghan leader Petraeus
while he was
attending services in a mosque
illustrates the Taliban's callous
disregard for Afghanistan's
values and for Islam itself,"
the general said. "Through
this action, the Taliban dem-


onstrated once again that it
is an enemy of Afghanistan
that seeks to impose through
violence its extremist ideology
and oppressive practices on
the Afghan people."'
Yarmal's assassination was
the second cold-blooded
Taliban murder of a local
Afghan leader in a week.
Taliban gunmen also killed
Lal Mohammad Khan, a
tribal leader in neighboring
Helmand province.
In Kabul, NATO Ambassador
to Afghanistan Mark Sedwill
noted that Yarmal was always


pushing for roads, electricity
and services for his people.
"That's a man who's try-
ing to serve the people of
Afghanistan, and he was killed
deliberately by the insurgents
in what is no less than a terror-
ist attack," he said.
The murder came as the
Afghan government and secu-
rity forces, along with coalition
forces, seek to make Kandahar
secure.
Kandahar is the second-
largest in Afghanistan, and
is the spiritual home of the
Pashtu-dominated Taliban.


and engagements with the
Taliban in the area increased.
Once that happened, it was a
sign that this was working."
"The Taliban haven't had
the effect that they wanted;'
said Fennell when he refer-
enced a protest that broke out

in front of the government
center a few days prior. "The
protest wasn't the end goal for
the Taliban, it was meant to be
a catalyst designed to create a
riotous event, but the Marines,
through strength and disci-
pline kept it from happening
by defusing the situation. At
that moment, they fought the
Taliban and won.":'
Projects of this nature affect
the insurgency on two fronts.
The first is by challenging one
of the core aims of the Taliban,
which is the interaction of
coalition forces with locals.
"Any contact you have with a
local national is a good thing,"
said Fennell. "The goal of the
Taliban is to keep us from
engaging with the govern-
ment or populace in any way.
This program creates another
opportunity for us to interact
with them and vice versa."
The second front is more
direct. By assisting farmers
and land owners in changing
their crops, it allows many of
them to switch from grow-
ing opium, which is one of
the Taliban's primary sources
of income, explained 1st Lt.
Michael Thatcher, the platoon
commander for 81 mm Mortar
Platoon, Weapon's Company,
1/6.
"This provides the opportu-
nity and incentive [for farm-
ers] to move away from illicit
crops and denies the Taliban
money to fight as well as bene-
fiting the local populace," said
Thatcher.

What are CLEPIDSST Exams?
CLEPJDSST examinations cover material taught in courses that most students take as requirements in the
first two years of college. A college usually grants the same amount of credit to students earning satisfactory
scores on the CLEPJDSST examination as it grants to students successfully completing that course.
Many examinations are designed to correspond to one-semester courses; some however correspond to full-
year or two-year courses. Unless stated otherwise in its description, an examination is intended to cover
material in a one-semester course.

Most exams are 90 minutes long, and, except for English Composition with Essay, is made up primarily of
multiple-choice questions; however, some exams do have fill-ins.

Chefs

From Page 1
"I was nervous at the end,"
he said. "We ended up doing it
with enough time."
Mercado said he felt extra
pressure because a team from
his base won the regional
competition last year and his
co-workers had high expecta-
tions.
"It's competitive;'" he said.
"Whoever wins gets all the
bragging rights."
The creativity showed when
the three-course meals were
served to waiting judges.
Appetizers ranged from
seared sea scallops with roast-


ed pears and honey butter to
pasta with scallops in a creamy
tomato sauce.
Judges seemed reluctant to
stop eating a candied cashew
and pear salad with chocolate-
covered bacon to sample and
a warm Asian potato salad.
But they managed to save
room for main dishes such
as ravioli with flounder and
artichoke or the winning meal
prepared by the Guantanamo
Bay team that featured pero-
gies stuffed with flounder and
scallops, topped with an alfre-
do sauce.
Before the winner was
announced, Bearl critiqued
the meals and offered advice
to the competitors.
"It's the little details that


help you move on to other
competitions," he said. "Think
about portions and plating -
tight compact plates to keep
everything hot. I think you can
be pleased with what you did."
The winning team from
Guantanamo Bay defended
its regional championship,
much to the relief of Mercado
and his cooking partner, Chief
Petty Officer Eric Peters.
Mercado said he was sur-
prised to win because he
feared the two teams from
Kings Bay might have a home-
field advantage.
"We had some good compe-
tition," he said. "I was expect-
ing second or third, but we
won. The advice we got will be
helpful in Washington."

As a child, what was your favorite game?


Look for our roving reporter around
Kings Bay and tell her what you think
about our question of the week.


Y ou have to love these questions that take you back to
when things were so much simpler, when your biggest
concern was how you were going to weasel out of taking
that mid-afternoon nap or how you were going to avoid eating


those vegetables you knew your mom was cooking up for din-
ner.
Getting back to the question, I would definitely have to say
that my favorite game growing up as a child was Life. To this

I Oj jllIi,


day I have yet to figure out why my brother always refused to
play board games with me. Maybe it was because he knew I
was going to beat him, or, perhaps, just maybe it was because I
might have been caught cheating a time or two.

By MC2 Scott Dagendesh
Navy Public Affairs Support Element
Det., Northwest

In recognition of Earth Day,
Naval Base Kitsap utilized a
herd of goats as an eco-friend-
ly method of invasive vegeta-
tion control in Bangor, Wash.,
April 15 to 23.
According to Chief Master-
At-Arms Amanda Cooper,
NBK Bangor's force protec-
tion operations officer and
Earth Day 2010 event coordi-
nator, this is the second year
NBK has utilized the goats to
remove noxious weeds and
shrubs without using heavy
machinery or chemicals.
More than 60 goats ate
their way through a variety of
plants, including blackberry
bushes and Scotch Broom.
Tammy Dunakin, chief
goat wrangler for Rent-A-
Ruminant, LLC, said the goats
provide an environmental-


ly friendly solution to weed
problems.
"My goats eat the brush
in a very natural green way,"
Dunakin said. "The base
is really committed to be as
green as they can. The goats
have been pretty successful
getting the job done."
Using the goats as weed con-
trol may take a few rounds to
knock out and kill the brush,
but because the goats have an
acidic environment within the
inside of their rumen (stom-
ach), they kill off a lot of the
weed seed so it can't repro-
duce, Dunakin said.
"It's really neat how all that
comes into play because the
goats eat the flowers, which
means the seed pod gets eaten
and nothing will bloom," said
Dunakin. "It's really enjoyable
coming out here, and I really
am glad to see the Navy do
things in an environmentally
friendly way."


When asked about the
Navy's use of goats, Cooper
said it was cost effective, safe
and environmentally friendly.
"I think it's a great way
to save on resources;'," said
Cooper. "They are put on this
earth to do certain things. It
would be great if a lot of other
bases would hire some goats
to knock down the weeds. It's
a lot cheaper on weed control
than lawn mowers and chemi-
cals."'
Cooper also said it's a good
outreach program and is a
great way to give back to the
earth instead of using chemi-
cals.
"It's fun to get the commu-
nity involved in Earth Day and
how to save the earth;'," Cooper
said. "We are so used to get-
ting a weed whacker or some
chemicals. This is just another
reminder for people that there
are better ways to be earth
mindful."'

Navy Week held


in middle of Iowa


By MC2 (SW/AW) Kat
Smith
Navy Office of Community Outreach
Public Affairs

The U.S. Navy participated
in the Des Moines Navy Week
from April 19 to 24 in Des
Moines, Iowa.
Sailors from the local
recruiting district, fleet squad-
rons and the USS Constitution
are gathering in Iowa's capi-
tol to celebrate what the Navy
means to Iowa and what Iowa
means to the Navy.
Des Moines Navy Week
started April 19 when Chief
Navy Counselor Joseph
Kicinski appeared on WHO-
TV's morning news show.
Kincinski, a former mess spe-
cialist, gave a culinary dem-
onstration and discussed
what it's like to prepare meals
aboard a submarine.
Cmdr. Anthony Savage,
executive officer aboard
Constitution and a native of
Des Moines, also appeared
on WHO-AM radio's Van &
Bonnie show.
"When I grew up here, I
didn't have a strong knowl-
edge of the Navy or what they
did," Savage said. "I think shar-
ing the Navy with the students
and community is extremely
valuable because it expands
their scope. When I grew up
here, I knew about agriculture
and Iowa. I didn't know New
England or any other state


many of the Sailors I've met
are from. With events like this
the community gets to interact
with us, and I think we enrich
their education."
Crew members from
Constitution joined Savage
on his trip back to Iowa and
visited students at Meredith
Middle School.
Lt. Chris Yost, a Sailor from
Helicopter Maritime Squadron
71 and another Iowa native,
was one of the Sailors to visit
Meredith Middle School.
"It's really great being back
after having done what I've
done and seen the places I've
seen in the Navy," Yost said.
"It's great seeing the familiar-
ity of home, and everyone is
always so appreciative of what
I do."'
Sailors educated students
and civilians on the "Old
Ironsides" ships and aviation
at the Iowa Hall of Pride April
20.
Other scheduled events for
Des Moines NavyWeekinclude
performances by the U.S. Navy
Leap Frogs Parachute Team,
public concerts by Navy
Band Great Lakes "Horizon"
and visits from senior Navy
leaders, such as Rear Adm.
Gregory Timberlake, assistant
deputy surgeon general for
Total Force Integration.
Navy Weeks are designed to
bring awareness to communi-
ties that don't have a signifi-
cant Navy presence.

Kings Bay Community
Water System
Georgia ID No GA0390013

Published April 2010
by
The Kings Bay Public Works
and Utility Departments


For copies of this report, the Source Water Assessment Plan
(SWAP), or for more information on this report, please contact Mr.
Ed Buczek, Kings Bay's Public Affairs Office, at (912) 573-4714.
Summary of Water Quality Information
The Kings Bay Community Water System is owned and
operated by Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Georgia for sup-
plying the water needs of housing, training and submarine sup-
port activities.
If you encounter a water concern or need to report a leak,
please call the Trouble Desk at 573-2555.

6 The Kings Bay Water Source 6
Our source of water consists of three 900 feet deep wells tak-
ing water from the Upper Floridan Aquifer located on Naval
Submarine Base (SUBASE) Kings Bay. The wells are enclosed
in secure buildings to protect them from outside sources of pol-
lution which could possibly contaminate our water supply. A
Source Water Assessment Plan (SWAP) was completed in May
2003 indicating our wells are at low risk for contamination. The
plan also explains procedures for protecting our water sup-
ply. In the USA there are a variety of drinking water sources
including rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and
wells. Groundwater from "confined" aquifers such as the Upper
Floridan is considered to be among the best water available to
consumers. As water moves over the surface of the land or
through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals
and, in some cases, radioactive material and can pick up substanc-
es resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

6 Testing to Keep You Safe: 6
To keep your water safe we constantly test it. Every year more
than 14,000 tests are run on water samples to ensure safe, high
quality potable water is provided to our customers. This report
provides you with the information you need to know about the
sources of SUBASE drinking water, what it contains and how it
compares to regulatory agency standards.. The Safe Drinking
Water Act requires all water systems to provide their customers
with an annual water quality report. The tests reported here
are from January 1 through December 31, 2009 except for a few
tests as noted in this report that are not done annually. Your
Kings Bay Water Department is committed to providing you
with clean, safe and reliable water. We are pleased to report
our water meets the standards of the Safe Drinking Water Act
without any exceptions.
6 How We Produce Water 0
The Kings Bay Community Water System provides the base with
treated water 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Water is pumped
from wells and treated to remove contaminants by aeration, fil-
tration, softening, pH adjustment, chlorination and fluoridation.
All plant operators and lab technicians hold state certification.
Water testing is performed at a number of locations and on a
variety of schedules ranging from many times per day, daily,
weekly, monthly, annually and in some cases longer intervals,
depending on the test and the component being tested to ensure
the quality of the water used by our customers.

6 Ensuring Safe Water
To insure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regu-
lations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water
provided by public water systems. Bottled water is regulated


by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration and must provide
the same protection for public health as public water supplies.
Drinking water and bottled water, may reasonably be expected
to contain small amounts of some contaminants. The presence
of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a
health risk. More information about contaminants and potential
health effects can be obtained at:
EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800) 426-4791
Or on-line at www.epa.gov/safewater.
S Vulnerability to Contaminants 6
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in
drinking water than others in the general population. People
with compromised immune systems such as those undergoing
chemotherapy, with organ transplants, with HIV/AIDS or other
immune system disorders, some elderly and infants may be
at risk from infection. These people should seek advice about
drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC
guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by
Cryptosporidium and microbial contaminants are available from:
The Safe Drinking Water Hotline: (800) 426-4791
or on-line at www.epa.gov/safewater.
Water Conservation is .)
USING WATER EFFICIENTLY
We've all heard a lot about water conservation recently, but
another way to think of it is as using water efficiently. It's a
gift that we give ourselves that lowers your expenses while pro-
viding for the future.
Although the drought has ended, water availability in Georgia
continues to be a high profile topic because of continuing
problems in many areas of Georgia. Since the drought lasted
several years, it will take quite some time to recover from its
effects.
Coastal Georgia has its own set of issues in addition to drought
conditions. The increased population and demands for water
from our source, has resulted in saltwater intrusion in some
areas along the coast. This is causing restrictions on growth
and greater regulation of its along the coast.
The Navy is complying with Presidential Executive orders
mandating reductions for water usage at all facilities with a goal
of reducing usage by 2% per year through 2025. Your help is
needed to achieve this ambitious goal.
There are many simple ways that we are already aware of to be
efficient in use of water in our daily activities. Let's use them
and reap the benefits. One good source for water savings at
home is www.conservewatergeorgia.net/.
An additional benefit when we conserve water is the energy
savings that nearly always accompany it
When you find a new way to be water efficient, SHARE it with
your neighbors and coworkers.
Drought Conditions in Georgia
Beginning last June and continuing into 2010 Southeast the
State of Georgia's Drought Restrictions have been lifted. There
are, however, still the following restrictions
* Landscape watering may be done at any time, but is
discouraged from 10:00 AM to 4:00 pm because its limited
effectiveness.
* The odd/even restrictions are still in effect. Odd numbered
addresses may water on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Sundays while
even number address may water on Mondays, Wednesdays &
Saturday. There is no watering on Fridays.
* Hydrants may only be used for firefighting or other public
health & safety purposes.

NEW Water Treatment Plant:
The Kings Bay Public Works Dept. with help from the Naval
Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC SE) and Navy
Region Southeast have teamed up to redesign our Water
Treatment Plant to alleviate trihalomethanes (THMs) of con-
cern in the water chlorination process. A nanofiltration system
has been chosen to remove minute amounts of carbon com-
pounds in the water supply that react with the chlorine used to
disinfect the water causing the THMs. The project design was
completed in mid-2009 and construction began in November.
The new plant is expected to begin operation in September 2010.
Definitions of Terms and Abbreviations in this Report:
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if
exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system
must follow.
Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL): The highest level of a
contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as a close
to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG): The level of
a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level (SMCL): reasonable
goals for drinking water quality. Exceeding SMCLs may adversely
affect odor or appearance, but there is no known risk to human health.
Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL): The highest
level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convinc-
ing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of
microbiological contaminants.
Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG): The
level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known
or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the
use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
N/A: Not Applicable.
N/D : Not Detected, The contaminant was not detected
ppb or gg/1: parts per billion or micrograms per liter (pg/1) (Note
that one ppb is equivalent to one second in 32 years)
ppm or mg/1: parts per million or milligram per liter (mng/1) (Note
that one ppm is equivalent to one second in 12 days)
pCi/l: picoCuries per liter is a measure of the amount of radioactivity
in a sample.
n a sample Potential Contaminants
Microbial contaminants, [None Detected] such as viruses
and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants,
septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
Data are given in Table 5.
Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which
can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas
production, mining or farming. There were only low levels of a
few naturally-occurring ones out of all tests run. See Tables 1,
3 and 4. There were none that exceeded the MCL.
Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety
of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses. None Detected at SUBASE. See Table 2.
Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and
volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from
gas stations, urban stormwater runoff and septic systems. Only
byproducts of water disinfection as shown in Table 2 were
found.
Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occur-
ring or be the results of oil and gas production and mining
activities. None have been detected. See Table 6.

*1. Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5s) is the sum of detected concentrations of individual byproducts. They form because chlorine used for disinfec-
tion also reacts with low concentrations of organic materials present in the raw water. The data are evaluated by averaging the current quarter result with the previous three quarters
to obtain a Four Quarter Running Average (4QRA). A violation occurs when the 4QRA exceeds the MCL.
*2. Trihalomethane Health Effects: Some individuals who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver,
kidneys or central nervous systems and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Due to the fact our results have been acceptable in previous testing we have not had to test for lead and copper since 2008. USEPA and Georgia EPD have asked that we inform
you about the health effects of lead as outlined below.
Health Effects of Lead If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is pri-
marily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The Kings Bay Community Water System is responsible for providing high quality drinking
water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure
by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to two minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested.
Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800) 426-4791 or
at www.epa.gov.safewater/lead.
