A charter between Training Squadron-SIX and
King Middle School that will transfer flight students from
the "ready room" to the classroom to tutor and mentor
middle school students began Nov 19.
The program will send a class of five or more
flight students each month to the middle school for a day.
This will "develop a partnership between civic respon-

instructor from VT-6 that coordinated the squadron's vol-

Navy Looks for 100 Percent ESR Participation
MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- As the Navy moves for-
ward with plans to eliminate the enlisted field service record
more than 130,000 Sailors need to establish a self-service
account that will allow them to access to their new digital
CIMS implementation manager. "Once the paper record dis-
appears, they will have to create an ESR (electronic service
record) account if they wish to see what is in their record."
This move follows the action already taken for offi-
cers. The Navy eliminated the officer field service record in
2000 and has already closed-out some enlisted field service

Thanksgiving Day Facts to Help Lighten Your Day
Editor's Note: With the upcoming
Thanksgiving Holiday, here are a
few fun Thanksgiving facts.
The first Thanksgiving oc-
curred in Plymouth Colony (pres-
ently day Massachusetts) in 1621, but
Thanksgiving did not become an offi-
cial holiday until 1941.
The cranberry is one of only
three fruits-the others are the blue-
berry and the Concord grape-that are
entirely native to North American soil,
according to the Cape Cod Cranberry
The National Turkey Federa-
tion estimated that 46 million turkeys-
one fifth of the annual total of 235 mil-
lion consumed in the United States in
2007-were eaten at Thanksgiving.
Three towns in the U.S. take
their name from the traditional Thanks-
giving bird, including Turkey, Texas
(pop. 465); Turkey Creek, Louisiana
(pop. 363); and Turkey, North Carolina
Originally known as Macy's
Christmas Parade-to signify the launch
of the Christmas shopping season-the
first Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
took place in New York City in 1924. It
was launched by Macy's employees and
featured animals from the Central Park
Zoo. Today, some 3 million people at-
tend the annual parade and another 44
million watch it on television.
Snoopy has appeared as a giant
balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving
Day Parade more times than any other
character in history. As the Flying Ace,
Snoopy made his sixth appearance in
the 2006 parade.
Sarah Josepha Hale, the enor-
mously influential magazine editor and
author who waged a tireless campaign
to make Thanksgiving a national holi-
day in the mid-19th century, was also
the author of the classic nursery rhyme
"Mary Had a Little Lamb."
Despite record-high gas prices
(more than $3.00 per gallon) in 2007,
the American Automobile Associa-
tion (AAA) estimated that 38.7 million
Americans would travel 50 miles or
more from home for the Thanksgiving
holiday, a slight increase (1.5 percent)
over the previous year.
In a survey conducted by the
National Turkey Federation, nearly
88 percent of Americans said they
eat turkey at Thanksgiving. The aver-
age weight of turkeys purchased for
Thanksgiving is 15 pounds, which
means some 690 million pounds of tur-
key were consumed in the U.S. during
Thanksgiving in 2007.
According to the Guinness
Book of World Records, the largest
pumpkin pie ever baked weighed 2,020
pounds and measured just over 12 feet
long. Itwas baked on October 8, 2005 by
the New Bremen Giant Pumpkin Grow-
ers in Ohio, and included 900 pounds
of pumpkin, 62 gallons of evaporated
milk, 155 dozen eggs, 300 pounds of
sugar, 3.5 pounds of salt, 7 pounds of
cinnamon, 2 pounds of pumpkin spice
and 250 pounds of crust.

Cash for Appliances is th
Pensacola, Fla. (Nov. 18, 2009) After the suc-
cess of the Cash for Clunkers program, the federal
government recently announced the creation of a
similar rebate program for those who purchase new
energy-efficient appliances. While many details are
yet to be determined, your BBB offers guidance to
those looking to take advantage of the program.
The federal government set aside $300
million from the stimulus package to fund the cash B
for appliances program. The program seeks to help
stimulate the economy in an industry that's seen
a 15 percent drop in sales, according to the Asso-
ciation of Home Appliance Manufacturers, and to increase
energy efficiency in households. According to ENERGYS-
TAR.gov, an average household could save $700 a year by
switching to newer, "greener" ENERGY STAR products.
The U.S. Department of Energy and the Environ-
mental Protection Agency set ENERGY STAR standards
and help consumers identify energy-efficient products in
60 different categories including appliances, windows and
doors, heating and cooling equipment and water heaters.
"Replacing older appliances with more energy ef-
ficient models will not only help the environment and pro-
vide a little boost to the economy, it will also have a positive
impact on a homeowner's bottom line when the energy bills
come in month after month," said Norman Wright, president
and CEO of your BBB Serving Northwest Florida.
e new Cash for Clunkers
Following are a few details on the evolv-
ing cash for appliances program:
Program implementation will vary by
state. Florida's program is anticipated to last for
ten days in April 2010 and run in conjunction with
Florida's Earth Day events.
Qualifying appliances will vary by State.
According to the Florida Energy & Climate Com-
d3B mission, Florida will offer rebates on the follow-
"hI ing ENERGY STAR appliances: refrigerators,
freezers, washing machines, dishwashers, room
air conditioners and gas tank-less hot water heat-
No trade-in will be required. Unlike the Cash For
Clunkers program, participants in cash for appliances don't
have to exchange an older appliance for a new one.
Stay tuned for updates. Visit your state's energy de-
partment's Web site for updates on program implementation
in their area. More information from the federal government
is available at http://www.energy.gov/recovery/.
Take advantage of additional programs now. If you
can't wait to purchase a new appliance, you can still take ad-
vantage of other programs. Both the federal government and
many state governments already provide tax credits for pur-
chasing energy efficient appliances. The Database for State
Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency provides a state-by-
state breakdown of local incentives.

the community. It is a small thing we can
do," Maybee explained. "We're the base
but we're also the community. We're all
in this together."
Many children that attend King
Middle School come from underprivi-
leged backgrounds. Gunther believes
the interaction with a positive adult role
model can help replace the mentorship
and attention that many of these chil-
dren will not get at home. "A lot of our
kids have single parents or do not live
with their parents at all. Seventy-three
percent of our school is on the Free or
Reduced Lunch Program."
Dee Copeland, the student gov-
ernment advisor and a social studies
teacher at King Middle School, thinks
this program will help motivate the chil-
dren by exposing them to young adults
who have accomplished high goals. "If
they never see success, they will never
know what it is."
The flight students are also ex-
cited to be involved. Ens. Brian Benge
explained that he is looking forward to
this experience since his roommate en-
joyed participating in a similar program
as a student Naval Flight Officer at NAS
Pensacola. "I hope the kids get a lot out
of it. It is always rewarding to play a
positive role in a child's life."

Strickland has logged on to her ESR to verify her depen-
dent's data and confirm classes she has completed have been
entered in her record.
Chief of Naval Personnel announced the require-
ment for all active-duty and Reserve personnel to establish
and maintain a self-service ESR early this year. These ac-
counts will allow Sailors to review all personnel, training,
and awards data by choosing in the view section of the ESR.
Sailors also have limited self-service update capability.
The Navy first announced the implementation of the
ESR in 2006 with NAVADMIN 292/06.
Self-service accounts can be created at https://nsips.
nmci.navy.mil or on the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel
System (NSIPS)/ESR server on board ships.
NAVADMIN 043/09 directs all commands to use
NSIPS/ESR as the single field level data entry point for all
Commanding officers, executive officers and com-
mand master chiefs can obtain command-level view only
access by completing the NSIPS/ESR system authorization
request and contacting their local NSIPS area manager. This
access provides the user view only capability for all ESR ac-
counts within their UIC(s).
All commands responsible for service record entries
are required to initiate updates in NSIPS/ESR; however offi-
cial military personnel file requirements remain unchanged.
Sailors are ultimately responsible for the accuracy
of their ESR and must contact the servicing personnel office
if any information is incorrect.
President Praises "Example" of Military Men
and Women in Thanksg
What began as a harvest celebration be-
tween European settlers and indigenous commu-
nities nearly four centuries ago has become our
cherished tradition of Thanksgiving. This day's
roots are intertwined with those of our Nation,
and its history traces the American narrative.
Today, we recall President George Wash-
ington, who proclaimed our first national day of
public thanksgiving to be observed "by acknowl-
edging with grateful hearts the many and signal
favors of Almighty God," and President Abraham
Lincoln, who established our annual Thanksgiv-
ing Day to help mend a fractured Nation in the midst President Bai
of civil war. We also recognize the contributions of
Native Americans, who helped the early colonists survive their
first harsh winter and continue to strengthen our Nation. From
our earliest days of independence, and in times of tragedy and
triumph, Americans have come together to celebrate Thanks-
As Americans, we hail from every part of the world.
While we observe traditions from every culture, Thanksgiving

As we gather once again among loved ones, let us also
reach out to our neighbors and fellow citizens in need of a help-
ing hand. This is a time for us to renew our bonds
with one another, and we can fulfill that commit-
ment by serving our communities and our Nation
throughout the year. In doing so, we pay tribute to
our country's men and women in uniform who set
an example of service that inspires us all. Let us
be guided by the legacy of those who have fought
for the freedoms for which we give thanks, and
be worthy heirs to the noble tradition of goodwill
shown on this day.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA,
President of the United States of America, by vir-
tue of the authority vested in me by the Constitu-
rack Obama tion and the laws of the United States, do hereby
proclaim Thursday, November 26, 2009, as a Na-
tional Day of Thanksgiving. I encourage all the people of the
United States to come together, whether in our homes, places of
worship, community centers, or any place where family, friends
and neighbors may gather, with gratitude for all we have re-
ceived in the past year; to express appreciation to those whose
lives enrich our own; and to share our bounty with others.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my
hand this twentieth day of November, in the year of our Lord
two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United States
of America the two hundred and thirty-fourth.
