Holly Petraeus, assistant director of the CFPB Oce of Service Mem ber Aairs, said the number of ser vice members aected by predatory lending acts is hard to measure. It can be embarrassing to go and tell somebody that you got ripped o, Petraeus said. Its so common for Sailors to walk into [a nancial counselor] with signicant nancial problems that unfortunately have gotten really severe by the time they walk in and ask to see a counselor. Predatory loans are usually small, short-term arrangements designed to bridge cash-strapped borrowers until their next paycheck. However, they are expensive, high-interest loans that often cost $10 to $44 dollars per week per $100 dollars borrowed, plus fees.

Kayak winner a loan is not paid at the original payment due date and rolled-over multiple times, it can lead to a situ ation where most Sailors cannot pay o the loan. Financial diculties can threaten a service members security clear ance and career. Petraeus said addressing nancial issues openly can work to a Sailors advantage. Petraeus recently met with Mid-South and Navy Personnel Command leadership and spoke to Sailors about how to make informed consumer decisions. She discussed the Military Lending Act, which provides some protection for active-duty service members, active National Guard or Reserve personnel, and their de pendents against the type of predatory loans that are commonly found outside the gates of bases. Petraeus said service members may appeal to predatory lenders because they have a guaranteed source of income. e Military Lending Act caps payday loans, auto title loans, and tax refund anticipation loans to military on active duty and their dependents at an annual rate of 36 per cent, Petraeus said. at sounds high, I know, but the average payday loan is actually about 390 per cent. e Military Lending Act denes payday loans as loans of closed-end credit, 91 days or less, and less than $2,000 dollars. It denes auto title loans as loans of closed-end credit that are 181 days or less. e problem is that some folks have just changed the denition of their product enough to get outside of that law, Petraeus said. So youll see some sites online ad vertising that type of loan that will say right on there, were not subject to the Military Lending Act be cause our loan is for more than 90 days. Sailors experiencing nancial challenges should notify their chain of com mand and work with their command nancial specialist to develop a budget and explore additional options such as military relief societies, eligibility for interest rate reductions and other relief.Lend is designed to provide military families with the medical, educational and psychological support needed to care for excep tional family members.

Young gave them a tour of the Common Council Chambers. Afterwards, the Sailors were invited to attend the Flag House, the for mer home of Mary Pick ersgill, maker of the ag that inspired the National Anthem. en the Sailors headed down to USS Constellation where they donated over fty copies of Yardarm To Yardarm to the Public Library of Baltimore.

Rick Williamson, proved to be a very gra cious host. Williamson is one of the plank owners of USS Nautilus (SSN 571). Young and old submari ners alike had a very great time. Many of the Sub Vets were veterans of both diesel boats and nuclear submarines. After the bar becue, the Sub Vets took the Sailors out to attend a Bowie Baysox baseball game. e nal day of the trip, June 15, proved to be an other very rewarding day. e day began at Our Daily Bread, a Catholic Charity in Baltimore. e group volunteered at the soup kitchen, serv ing breakfast to more than 100 homeless and hungry of Baltimore. Edwards found himself in an all too familiar position. Having recently completed his rst patrol, he was intimately famil iar with the scullery of USS Maryland.

And John, you have accomplished that mission admirably. ONeill thanked a long list of supporters, includ ing his family, the Cam den County community, and commands aboard Kings Bay. e 486 civilians and 230 military members I have been privileged to work with over the past two years are true profes sionals, and they are fully dedicated to their mission to provide support to the eet, ghter and family, he said. It really is a re markable group of individuals, but more signicantly it is a remarkable team. It is an honor, a privi lege, and a blessing to stand before you today, Guey told the crowd. After a couple of years working for the Air Force in land-locked Montgomery, Ala., its great to be back on the waterfront and have the opportunity to command this worldclass facility that provides service and support to the best submarines and Sail ors in the world, and to the tremendous families who support them. e bar has been set high, and it remains high, and I challenge each of you to maintain the steady strain to continue the positive trends previously discussed keep your standards high, and never be satised with where youve been or where we are, Guey said. Perfec tion remains the goal, and, as a team, well continue to strive to achieve that goal.

Traumatic Brain Injury is the signature wound of conicts in Iraq and Af ghanistan. Conservative estimates put the number of U.S. warghters who have experienced TBI at more than 200,000. Battleeld medical per sonnel rely on visual signs and the personal accounts of patients to alert them to the possibility of TBI. e Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Blast Gauge provides a quantitative means for measuring blast related exposure, thus providing a mechanism for medical personnel to better iden tify those at risk for TBI. e gauge collects quantitative data to provide medics with a screening tool and for uncovering the mechanisms of TBI. During a recent engage ment, a Soldier suered a shrapnel injury and did not report a blast exposure to the medic treating his visible wounds. e medic opted to check the Blast Gauges on the Soldier; which told the real story. e Soldiers gauges displayed yellow lights, in dicating a moderate expo sure occurred during the engagement. In response, the medics downloaded data from the gauges and followed stan dard protocol for evaluat ing someone at risk for TBI. It was determined that the Soldier had suf fered a mild TBI and treat ment began immediately. is is one example drawn from DARPAs pilot testing of the Blast Gauge, which began last year. It is a small self-con tained system that mea sures the amount of blast exposure to which a warf ighter has been exposed. e rst phase of the pilot included an initial Army brigade-level elding that involved approxi mately 900 Soldiers, in an active combat role. Today the DARPA Blast Gauge is used by more than 6,400 warghters in a variety of units across the Military. Phase II of the pilot calls for plans to double that number over the next month. DARPA Blast Gauge pro vides doctors with informa tion on what their patient actually experienced dur ing an exposure. said Je Rogers, DARPA program manager.

Group accompanies by teachers during June 9 traininge Camden Partnership re cently sponsored one of the favorite Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay tours, Guns, Bombs Bullets and Dogs. is year the partnership working with Rachael Baldwin, chairman of the chambers Workforce Development Committee, encouraged local teach ers to participate. Teachers from Brantley, Cam den, Charlton, Glynn, McIntosh and Wayne counties earned professional development units for participating in the Trident Coast Georgia Work Ready Sci ence, Technology, Engineering and Math Institute Grant initia tive. STEM is a growing initia tive in education to promote and encourage more students to consider pursuit of careers that require performance and rigor in those content areas. Teachers in the institute were exposed to more than 20 hours of the application of STEM con cepts to related careers and work sites. e Guns, Bombs, Bullets and Dogs Tour was an optional component which allowed teachers to see the connection between robotics and the defense indus try. A shooting simulation incor porated math related applica tions, and the training required of the dogs related to applica tions in animal and behavioral science. On June 7, Trident Ret Fa cility instructed teachers about math formulas used in non-destructive weapons testing and multiple applications for elec tronics. Baldwin said the opportunity for teachers to link their curricu lum to real-world applications is important in creating relevance. Students always ask, Why do I have to learn this?, she said. When a teacher can authori tatively respond about their ex perience last summer at Kings Bay ... when I blew up 24 pounds of C-4 ... and relate it to an instructional objective they have likely increased the attention and engagement of the student in learning the concept. One of the lessons a teacher produced from this activity incorporated teaching the proper ties of circles to solve problems involving the length of an arc and the area of a sector.Shar ing real-world experience can support a simulated scenario to examine circular debris patterns that could result at a bomb deto nation site. Baldwin said the nal project will glean more than 90 STEMrelated exposures or activities for linking STEM to curriculum stan dards. It is always exciting when anyone has the oppor tunity to get a better understanding of the mission of our base here at Kings Bay, he said. But it is most important that teachers not only understand the mission but also the skill sets and expec tations required of entry level military and civilian workers. Teachers are the strongest link to creating tomorrows work force. e next partnership event will be Aug. 9, regarding fam ily advocacy Fleet and Family Support Services will provide a brieng on its services specically focused on family advo cacy. Law enforcement partners, in cluding Camden County Sheri Tommy Gregory, St. Marys Police Chief Tim Hatch, Kingsland Police Chief Darryl Gri and invited Naval Criminal Investi gative Service representatives will be joining the forum, said Marty Klumpp, chairman of the Forums and Tours committee. e purpose of the partner ship is to continue to nurture the partnership between the base and Camden County. Partnership programs include tours of various commands and forums to educate the community and bring together community and military projects and expertise.

Per OPNAVINST 5100.12H, certain guidelines must be followed to ensure your safety and the safety of others. Jogging and walking should be done on sidewalks and bicycle riding on bicycle paths to the greatest extent possible. Pedestrians and bicyclists should always be aware of auto trac. During times of restricted visibility, such as darkness, fog, or heavy rain, all eorts must be made to become more visible by wearing lightcolored clothing, reective vests and other bright or lighted items. e use of ashlights can help individuals be more visible. Bicycles used between sunset and sunrise must be equipped with a lamp on front which has a white light visible for 500 feet to the front, and a red reector visable 600 feet to the rear. e light may be a blinking or steady light. While bicycling, all personnel shall wear helmets approved by the Consumer Safety Product Commission, ANSI and Snell while riding anywhere on base. Only workers operating bicycles in industrial areas that require the use of ANSI approved helmets for protection from falling and ying objects are allowed to use hard hats, with chin straps, instead of bicycle helmets. Wearing of portable headphones, earphones or other listening devices while jogging, walking, bicycling or skating on roads and streets on Naval installations is prohibited. A road is dened as that part of a trac way which includes both the roadway and any shoulder alongside the roadway. ese items may be used on bicycle paths as long as they are removed when crossing roads and streets. When operating a privately owned vehicle, it is your responsibility to be mindful of pedestrians. You should approach crosswalks with caution. Remember pedestrians have the right of way while crossing the street. Yield to pedestrians. Contact Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Safety with any questions or safety concerns at 573-2525 or 573-0414.Pedestrian safety top NSB priority Trac Safety With the high cost of the summer vacation season right around the corner, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau leaders remind Sailors to be wary of predatory lending practices. Holly Petraeus, assistant director of the CFPB Oce of Service Member Aairs, said the number of service members aected by predatory lending acts is hard to measure. It can be embarrassing to go and tell somebody that you got ripped o, Petraeus said. Its so common for Sailors to walk into [a nancial counselor] with signicant nancial problems that unfortunately have gotten really severe by the time they walk in and ask to see a counselor. Predatory loans are usually small, short-term arrangements designed to bridge cash-strapped borrowers until their next paycheck. However, they are expensive, high-interest loans that often cost $10 to $44 dollars per week per $100 dollars borrowed, plus fees.

Kayak winner a loan is not paid at the original payment due date and rolled-over multiple times, it can lead to a situation where most Sailors cannot pay o the loan. Financial diculties can threaten a service members security clearance and career. Petraeus said addressing nancial issues openly can work to a Sailors advantage. Petraeus recently met with Mid-South and Navy Personnel Command leadership and spoke to Sailors about how to make informed consumer decisions. She discussed the Military Lending Act, which provides some protection for active-duty service members, active National Guard or Reserve personnel, and their dependents against the type of predatory loans that are commonly found outside the gates of bases. Petraeus said service members may appeal to predatory lenders because they have a guaranteed source of income. e Military Lending Act caps payday loans, auto title loans, and tax refund anticipation loans to military on active duty and their dependents at an annual rate of 36 percent, Petraeus said. at sounds high, I know, but the average payday loan is actually about 390 percent. e Military Lending Act denes payday loans as loans of closed-end credit, 91 days or less, and less than $2,000 dollars. It denes auto title loans as loans of closed-end credit that are 181 days or less. e problem is that some folks have just changed the denition of their product enough to get outside of that law, Petraeus said. So youll see some sites online advertising that type of loan that will say right on there, were not subject to the Military Lending Act because our loan is for more than 90 days. Sailors experiencing nancial challenges should notify their chain of command and work with their command nancial specialist to develop a budget and explore additional options such as military relief societies, eligibility for interest rate reductions and other relief.Lend is designed to provide military families with the medical, educational and psychological support needed to care for exceptional family members.

Later in the day, the Sailors headed to the University Of Maryland Childrens Hospital. ere, the Sailors were able to meet with young children in the outpatient clinic and pass out ball caps through the Caps-For-Kids program. e Sailors had a truly great time, seeing the children smile as they each received their own Navy ball cap. June 12 was another special day for the Maryland Sailors. ey had the opportunity to attend both the Baltimore Veterans Aairs Hospital and the Perry Point Veterans Aairs Medical Center. Tthere, they met with many veterans and spent time sharing stories with them. It was a truly moving and humbling experience for me to meet with these veterans and to hear their stories, Edwards said. at evening proved to be equally as rewarding. Kimsey and the crew said attend the Baltimore Orioles baseball game in Camden Park. Prior to the opening pitch, Kimsey and the Maryland Sailors were escorted to the pitching mound, where the commanding ocer presented the Orioles with a plaque and thanked the Orioles organization for all that it does for the military and the local community. After the presentation, Kimsey had the opportunity to administer the Oath of Enlistment to 20 future Sailors. After the enlistment, the Sailors stayed and enjoyed the game. June 13 proved to be equally exciting for Maryland Sailors. e group met with the City of Baltimore Council President Bernard Young at the Baltimore City Council building. Young gave them a tour of the Common Council Chambers. Afterwards, the Sailors were invited to attend the Flag House, the former home of Mary Pickersgill, maker of the ag that inspired the National Anthem. en the Sailors headed down to USS Constellation where they donated over fty copies of Yardarm To Yardarm to the Public Library of Baltimore. At the conclusion of the book donation, the USS Maryland Sailors were in prime position to watch the beginning of the Sailabration as the tall ships began to arrive in the harbor. To close out the day, the Sailors were invited to and attended the Oce of the Navy Small Business Outreach presentation and dinner in downtown Baltimore. While there, many had the opportunity to meet with national businesses that support our eet. June 14 was a truly special day for the group. e group had the opportunity to meet with United States Submarine Veterans Inc. of Chesapeake Base. e Sub Vets hosted and honored Maryland Sailors for a relaxing barbecue and pool party, with plenty of sea stories. e Chesapeake Base commander, Senior Chief Quartermaster (Ret.) Rick Williamson, proved to be a very gracious host. Williamson is one of the plank owners of USS Nautilus (SSN 571). Young and old submariners alike had a very great time. Many of the Sub Vets were veterans of both diesel boats and nuclear submarines. After the barbecue, the Sub Vets took the Sailors out to attend a Bowie Baysox baseball game. e nal day of the trip, June 15, proved to be another very rewarding day. e day began at Our Daily Bread, a Catholic Charity in Baltimore. e group volunteered at the soup kitchen, serving breakfast to more than 100 homeless and hungry of Baltimore. Edwards found himself in an all too familiar position. Having recently completed his rst patrol, he was intimately familiar with the scullery of USS Maryland. He volunteered to head to the sculler of the soup kitchen and cleaned dishes for the entire morning. Everyone else working in food preparation or set up and breakdown of tables and cleaning up after the hungry and preparing for more people to come eat. Kimsey and group then traveled to Easton, Md. to meet with the Eastern Shore Navy League. e ESNL has a long history with USS Maryland. Members of the group routinely make trips down to Kings Bay to present the Sailor of the Year, Junior Sailor of the Year, and Blue Jacket of the Year awards to the selected Sailors of USS Marylands crew. e ESNL hosted the Sailors for a luncheon and meet and greet. Closing out the day, and the trip, USS Maryland Sailors headed to Annapolis, Md., home of the United States Naval Academy. Fischer, who graduated from the Academy in 2004, led them on a tour of the Yard, stopping at several incredibly important monuments to our Nation and our Navy. e group was able to stop by the Crypt of John Paul Jones, Father of Our Navy. Other monuments visited included the Chapel of the Navy, the Herndon Monument, the Tripoli Monument, the foremast of USS Maine and the Sea Gate. While there, Maryland Sailors were also able to see the several submarine specic monuments, including the USS Paddle Bell, Still On Patrol (Mk XIV Torpedo), Submarine Centennial, and USS Triton Light. Group 10; Rear Adm. Barry Bruner, director, Undersea Warfare Division; and Rear Adm. Joseph Tofalo, commander, Submarine Group 10. At the end of the day, for Capt. ONeill, said RDML Scorby, its been about taking care of his military and civilian shipmates, accomplishing the mission, and enabling his sailors to succeed at work and in life. And John, you have accomplished that mission admirably. ONeill thanked a long list of supporters, including his family, the Camden County community, and commands aboard Kings Bay. e 486 civilians and 230 military members I have been privileged to work with over the past two years are true professionals, and they are fully dedicated to their mission to provide support to the eet, ghter and family, he said. It really is a remarkable group of individuals, but more signicantly it is a remarkable team. It is an honor, a privilege, and a blessing to stand before you today, Guey told the crowd. After a couple of years working for the Air Force in land-locked Montgomery, Ala., its great to be back on the waterfront and have the opportunity to command this worldclass facility that provides service and support to the best submarines and Sailors in the world, and to the tremendous families who support them. e bar has been set high, and it remains high, and I challenge each of you to maintain the steady strain to continue the positive trends previously discussed keep your standards high, and never be satised with where youve been or where we are, Guey said. Perfection remains the goal, and, as a team, well continue to strive to achieve that goal. (Wife) Wanda and I are thrilled and blessed to be part of the team, and we truly look forward to getting to know you all better and working with each of you. ONeills next assignment is director of Math and Science at the United States Naval Academy. Guey came to Kings Bay from the Air War College at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala.

Traumatic Brain Injury is the signature wound of conicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Conservative estimates put the number of U.S. warghters who have experienced TBI at more than 200,000. Battleeld medical personnel rely on visual signs and the personal accounts of patients to alert them to the possibility of TBI. e Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Blast Gauge provides a quantitative means for measuring blast related exposure, thus providing a mechanism for medical personnel to better identify those at risk for TBI. e gauge collects quantitative data to provide medics with a screening tool and for uncovering the mechanisms of TBI. During a recent engagement, a Soldier suered a shrapnel injury and did not report a blast exposure to the medic treating his visible wounds. e medic opted to check the Blast Gauges on the Soldier; which told the real story. e Soldiers gauges displayed yellow lights, indicating a moderate exposure occurred during the engagement. In response, the medics downloaded data from the gauges and followed standard protocol for evaluating someone at risk for TBI. It was determined that the Soldier had suffered a mild TBI and treatment began immediately. is is one example drawn from DARPAs pilot testing of the Blast Gauge, which began last year. It is a small self-contained system that measures the amount of blast exposure to which a warfighter has been exposed. e rst phase of the pilot included an initial Army brigade-level elding that involved approximately 900 Soldiers, in an active combat role. Today the DARPA Blast Gauge is used by more than 6,400 warghters in a variety of units across the Military. Phase II of the pilot calls for plans to double that number over the next month. DARPA Blast Gauge pro vides doctors with informa tion on what their patient actually experienced dur ing an exposure. said Je Rogers, DARPA program manager. After a blast, medics check a wristwatchsized device displaying a green, yellow or red status light to indicate the rela tive risk of injury. is is an entirely new capability and has already helped medics and doctors in treating in jured warghters. e Gauge provides warghters with an immediate triage capability and collects quantitative data for later analysis. While the Army continues its eorts to develop its long-term TBI diagnostic solution for the battleeld, the $45 per unit DARPA Blast Gauge lls an immediate need.

Group accompanies by teachers during June 9 traininge Camden Partnership recently sponsored one of the favorite Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay tours, Guns, Bombs Bullets and Dogs. is year the partnership working with Rachael Baldwin, chairman of the chambers Workforce Development Committee, encouraged local teachers to participate. Teachers from Brantley, Camden, Charlton, Glynn, McIntosh and Wayne counties earned professional development units for participating in the Trident Coast Georgia Work Ready Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Institute Grant initiative. STEM is a growing initiative in education to promote and encourage more students to consider pursuit of careers that require performance and rigor in those content areas. Teachers in the institute were exposed to more than 20 hours of the application of STEM concepts to related careers and work sites. e Guns, Bombs, Bullets and Dogs Tour was an optional component which allowed teachers to see the connection between robotics and the defense industry. A shooting simulation incorporated math related applications, and the training required of the dogs related to applications in animal and behavioral science. On June 7, Trident Ret Facility instructed teachers about math formulas used in non-destructive weapons testing and multiple applications for electronics. Baldwin said the opportunity for teachers to link their curriculum to real-world applications is important in creating relevance. Students always ask, Why do I have to learn this?, she said. When a teacher can authoritatively respond about their experience last summer at Kings Bay ... when I blew up 24 pounds of C-4 ... and relate it to an instructional objective they have likely increased the attention and engagement of the student in learning the concept. One of the lessons a teacher produced from this activity incorporated teaching the properties of circles to solve problems involving the length of an arc and the area of a sector.Sharing real-world experience can support a simulated scenario to examine circular debris patterns that could result at a bomb detonation site. Baldwin said the nal project will glean more than 90 STEMrelated exposures or activities for linking STEM to curriculum stan dards. It is always exciting when anyone has the oppor tunity to get a better understanding of the mission of our base here at Kings Bay, he said. But it is most important that teachers not only understand the mission but also the skill sets and expectations required of entry level military and civilian workers. Teachers are the strongest link to creating tomorrows workforce. e next partnership event will be Aug. 9, regarding family advocacy Fleet and Family Support Services will provide a brieng on its services specically focused on family advocacy. Law enforcement partners, including Camden County Sheri Tommy Gregory, St. Marys Police Chief Tim Hatch, Kingsland Police Chief Darryl Gri and invited Naval Criminal Investigative Service representatives will be joining the forum, said Marty Klumpp, chairman of the Forums and Tours committee. e purpose of the partnership is to continue to nurture the partnership between the base and Camden County.
