2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, August 28, 2014 By Mark Diamond Military Surface Deployment and Distribution CommandTransportation experts from U.S. Transportation Command and Mili tary Surface Deployment and Distri bution Command formed a fusion team this month to more quickly evaluate and address critical issues aecting the U.S. militarys privately owned vehicle shipping program. International Auto Logistics re cently assumed responsibility for the Global Privately Owned Vehicle Contract, also known as GPC III. Under the terms of the contract, IAL is responsible for processing, trans porting and storing vehicles owned by military personnel and Defense Department civilian employees bound for or returning from over seas duty locations. e newly formed fusion team is a combination of experts familiar with the contract requirements and who can and drive improvements into the system, ocials said. Air Force Brig. Gen. Paul H. Guemmer leads the team. We are working very closely with IAL, and we have put together a team to research the issues and gain an understanding of how IAL intends to make the process more ef cient and transparent, Guemmer said. Our groups responsibility is to examine IALs supply chain process es and provide contract oversight of the companys ability to meet the requirements for our military cus tomers. Were not here to do IALs job. Were here to look after the best interest of our military customers by highlighting issues that IAL needs to resolve. Guemmer said the team has been working hard to understand and correct the most immediate issues that are aecting military customers. Weve seen there is a constrained information ow to our military cus tomers, and more importantly, if the process doesnt work, our customers need to know how to elevate their concerns, the general explained. During the teams rst week, it de veloped and distributed a customer advisory to all Defense Department transportation oces clarifying the level of service to which customers are entitled, as well as to provide customers a better understanding of how they resolve issues within the vehicle shipping process. e general said another area of concern is rental car expenses and other incidental expenses a cus tomer incurs as a result of a missed vehicle delivery date. Our military POV customers are sometimes confused and frus trated, Guemmer said. ey need to know they will be taken care of throughout the entire process. For military personnel, fusion team ocials said, the rst seven days of rental car expenses are reim bursed by the government, and IAL is responsible for rental car expens es beyond that period. DOD civilian employees are not entitled to rental car expenses from the government for the rst seven days, but they may le an inconvenience claim through IAL for rental car expenses begin ning the rst day after the delivery date is missed. e general said the team spent much time during the rst week understanding IALs in-transient vis ibility, or ITV, processes. ITV is an organizations capability to provide the customer with maximum visibil ity and near-real-time status on the movement of all classes of supply, from origin to destination. According to Army Lt. Col. Mi chael Erhardt of SDDCs operations directorate, members of the fusion team believe the majority of cus tomer concerns are a result of miss ing or incomplete ITV data. He said IALs system, in some cases, may not accurately reect where a vehicle is in the shipping process. From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs OfficeEective immediately, command ing ocers and ocers-in-charge may approve waivers to the oneyear requirement that Sailors must be on board their rst permanent duty station to be eligible for Tuition Assistance according to NAVADMIN 190/14 released Aug. 21. In addition to command triad waiver approval, Sailors must meet all existing requirements for partici pation eligibility. e NAVADMIN also detailed changes to the grade and fee policy for TA for courses stat ing after 1 Oct. to align with recent Department of Defense TA policy. Successful course completion will be dened as a grade of C or higher for undergraduate courses, a B or higher for graduate courses, and a Pass for Pass/Fail grades and must be attained to avoid reim bursement of TA funding. Reimbursement also will be re quired from Sailors who dont make up a grade of I (incomplete) by the educational institutions deadline or six months after the completion of the class, whichever comes rst. Also changing Oct. 1, only tuition directly related to the course of in struction and not including fees will be paid with TA funds. Fees no longer covered by TA in clude equipment, supplies, books/ materials, exams, admissions, registration, nes and costs associated with distance learning. ese changes align the Navys policy with Department of Defense Instruction 1322.25 for Voluntary Education programs covering policies for service members use of TA. Historically, more than 85 per cent of Sailors satisfactorily com plete and pass their undergraduate and/or graduate level classes; this is a tribute to the focus and dedi cation of the Sailors using VOLED programs, said Ernest DAntonio, the Center for Personal and Profes sional Developments Navy VOLED program director. In Fiscal Year 2013, approximately 89 percent of courses paid for by TA were successfully passed, with 72 percent of those courses resulting in an A or B grade, according to DAntonio. Sailors not successfully complet ing courses using TA must reimburse the Navy for TA funds. tenant commands, base military personnel and civilian employees of the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga.

Aaron Jefferson (Ret.) Kings Bay CREDO FacilitatorIn the wake of the suicide of a famous comedian who brought laughter to so many across the globe, the subject of suicide has come to the forefront once again. Over the last 15 years, roughly four Sailors every month in our Navy have died from suicides. is makes sui cide the second leading cause of preventable death, second only to automobile accidents. e Navys response has been strong and proactive to prevent the unnecessary deaths of our most prized posses sion, our Sailors. ere are a number of resources family members, Sailors and commanders may reach out to help someone who may be at risk.

command or individual was asked to log and re cord their miles. In the end, each mile is tallied to see which command had the most miles. Heather McCormick, Navy Adventures Unleashed coordinator said the event is held to honor those who have fallen but those who have served should be saluted too. It is important to remember those who are serving our country, whether they are currently serving or theyve died in battle, McCormick said. Kings Bay does this run in honor of them. e closing ceremony started the Kings Bay event with the presenta tions of colors, a morning prayer, and words of guest speaker Erick Millette, a wounded warrior who participates in the Warriors Speak program. Marines displayed a repre sentation of a battle cross. Its purpose was to show honor and respect for fall en service members Cmdr. Ed Callahan, Na val Submarine Base Kings Base executive ocer, spoke to the runners before the race. With every step you take, with every breath you take, with every heart beat, youre doing it for those who have paid the ultimate sacrice, he said. e Kings Bay runners were given small remind ers of who they were run ning for. Changes also were made to this years run to make it more symbolic. is year we handed out dog tags with the names of the fallen, McCormick said. It was something to remind them as they were running. We also put out stakes with the battleeld cross on them, which represented a fallen service member. After the run, an Honor and Remember Flag was awarded to the command which logged the most miles. MCSFBn Kings Bay earned rst place with a total of 3,452 miles. Commander, Submarine Squadron 16 came in sec ond with 1,670 miles, and Maritime Force Protection Unit was third with 1,428 miles. From June 18 to Aug. 21, a total of 15,287.91 miles were logged by Kings Bay service members in honor of those who have fallen in battle.Medical, Mental Health Counselors, the Chapel and CREDO to provide support. e Navy also has made this a core subject in its General Military Training. In order to curb this risk, open, direct and honest talk about suicide is needed. is kind of talk encourages help-seeking and is the key to prevention. Open and honest talk also pushes aside the idea that this subject is ta boo and those who have thoughts of suicide are somehow abnormal. CREDO presents two programs which can inform you about the nature of suicide and prepare you to help someone should the need arises. ese two programs are safeTALK and ASIST. e safe of safeTALK stands for suicide alert ness for everyone. e let ters of TALK stand for the steps one does to help a person with thoughts of suicide: Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe. e second program ASIST gives the par ticipant a more in depth training over the two-day sessions. ASIST stands for Ap plied Suicide Intervention Skills Training. If you sense someone is at risk, give them hope by ask ing if they are thinking about suicide. Let them talk with you, but dont be alarmed by what they say or try to reason with them. Get them to a pro fessional who can provide the needed care and dont leave them alone. In any case, dont ever place yourself in harms way in attempting to assist someone. Demonstrating this kind of concern and care saves lives and brings refreshing springs of hope.

In addition to an evacu ation plan, its recommended families have at least three days of emer gency supplies, according to the American Red Cross, including one gallon of water per person per day, non-perishable foods and hygiene products. Hurri cane season will come and go, but as Crossley points out, being prepared is not a seasonal event. Its not just for hur ricane season, Crossley said. You need to plan and be prepared year round. Yeoman 1st Class Serge Kabanda, CNRSE ag writer, whose entire career has been located in states prone to hurricanes, un derstands the need to be ready. Disaster preparedness is important, especially if you dont live alone, Ka banda said. Even if you have pets, you should always have an emergency plan. A hurricane. A re. Even being robbed. Just be ready for anything that could happen and know what to do. Being prepared means you dont have to panic whenever things ac tually do happen. So what do you do if something does happen? If an evacuation is ordered, the Regional Operations Center, commonly known as the ROC, springs into action. e resources section, which includes adminis trative, logistics, and nancial personnel, uses the Total Workforce Management System, or TWMS, to automatically generate the names of all military and civilian personnel in the aected area. Orders are printed and made available so Sailors can travel to their designated safe haven, which is usually identied ahead of time by the installation. Specic guidance will be provided on authorization of families to travel, de pending on circumstances of the incident. Once the event, such as a hurricane, has passed and its safe to return, per sonnel and families are di rected to return. Mission essential per sonnel and emergency response personnel may be required to remain at their installation for the duration of the evacuation order. Each installation, as well as the Navy Region Southeast headquarters, has emergency information cards. ey provide specic in structions on mustering, as well as emergency contact numbers and Web sites, including the Navy Fam ily Accountability and As sessment System website, https:// mil. is site provides key information to help keep you and your family safe and tells you what to do if disaster strikes.

I m surprised. I thought the all-mighty NFL would wipe out college football. I prefer college football for all the reasons given, plus a lot more, from pag eantry to Tim Tebow. Pro football has too much time wasted under the hood. Fifteen college stadiums are bigger than the biggest pro stadium. Name a pro rivalry better than Florida-Georgia, Alabama-Auburn, TexasOklahoma, OSU-Michigan, USC-Notre Dame or ArmyNavy. Bears-Packers? Thats not even the NFLs oldest because the Packers played the then-Chicago Cardinals first, a year before they played the Bears. But, alas, I do love pro football too.
