T he HS-11 "Dragonslayers" re-
turned home Dec. 16 after a six-
month deployment on board USS
Enterprise (CVN 65). While embarked on
board USS Enterprise, HS-11 provided
the carrier strike group with a wide range
of services, allowing them to complete
their mission safely and more efficiently.
Spring the deployment, HS-11 members
supported personnel recovery during a
man overboard, provided aerial security for
Commander Task Force 158, Iraq's oil plat-
form and offered cover for boarding teams
working ouf of rigid hull inflatable boats.
Michel expressed that HS-11's goal was
to meet all operational requirements as
dictated by the warfare commanders.

ON THE HOMEFRONT


More things every military



wife needs to know for sure


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor

Qd uestion: I am newly married and
my husband's squadron recently
had a change of command. I really
liked e old commanding officer's (CO's)
wife, so I looked for her at a squadron party
the weekend after the ceremony. She and
her husliand weren't there. My husband
acted like I was crazy for expecting the
"old" CO and his wife to be at the party.
But shouldn't they have been there?
_-Answer: In a .word, no. In another word,
-no.
I'm glad you asked this question.
SLast week, my friend, whose husband
Happens to be the captain of our local Navy
hospitala, called and told me that her hus-
:band is up for new orders this summer and
ihat they will be moving. She might as well
la6ve been my own mother calling to tell
-me that my parents are getting a divorce.
3geause even though my mom has never
(tdSe that, my friend's announcement sent
tiVnges of sadness and fear right down
to my pinkie toes, in the same way that I
imagine it would if my parents were splits-
ville. I felt like Bill Murray in "What About
-Bob?" I wanted to say, "You mean you're
cleaving? But what about us? What about the
hospitall" I was suddenly stricken with the
'anxiety that comes with change.
You see, a lot is said about the constant
transitions military families face when they
ware moved to new duty stations every few
years; however, there is an untold amount
,nxiety and upheaval even when a fam-
:ly is staying put but the leadership in their
command is changing. Within any military


A

Most interesting experience: A six-
month deployment.

group, the command essentially becomes
the parent. They set the rules and the tone.
And even though a dependent spouse
doesn't go to work and deal with the com-
manding officer directly, those "rules" and
that "tone" trickles down to the family nev-
ertheless.
If, for instance, the CO is a bachelor and
not interested in family life, a spouse will
feel that when her husband goes, for the
second time in two weeks to a squadron
social function that is designed to be held
without spouses. In my mom's day as a
Navy wife, this amounted to my dad spend-
ing a lot of after-hours with the guys at
the 0' Club. In my day, it was one of my
husband's first CO's many years ago who
could never remember my name or the fact
that Dustin was married at all.
It sounds to me as if your friend's hus-
band ran a command that is thankfully
much more common, one that inspires posi-
tive feelings for all involved. It is natural
that you miss the CO's wife. But it would
be very unnatural for her to be at the after-
the-change-of-command party, and here's
why:
There are three basic scenarios when a
squadron or unit changes command. The
first scenario assumes that the outgoing CO
was loved by all. His or her transition feels
like a parent's divorce. The group braces
themselves to see if the new person in com-
mand will be a "step-parent" with homs or
a halo. Secretly, the group can't imagine
anyone taking the place of the other beloved
parent. If reality lives up to this perception,
then the old CO is forever elevated to God-
like status as everyone remembers the way
things "used to be."


The second scenario assumes that the
outgoing CO was not liked. Then, just as
a child happily sheds the memory of a
despised teacher for a new school year, the
group doesn't care what the new person will
be like. They just want change.
The third and last scenario, however, is
the most prickly of them all. What if the
outgoing CO was loved and the new "step-
parent" ends up being equally as good?
What if he or she has no horns? Then, as
you are experiencing, the group might feel
like they have betrayed the old CO by lik-
ing the new one. They will miss the old
command's presence at social events, then
feel like a traitor if they enjoy the new peo-
ple just as much.
But just remember that a good, loving
parent always wants you to be happy. Even,
if it is with someone else. Yet a good, loving
parent is never invited to the new couple's
wedding party. Trust me when I say that
eventually there will be room in your heart
for both parents.
Wait, we are still talking about military
commands....
Just go and have fun. And if you remem-
ber nothing else, remember that in the mili-
tary, whether you loved or hated anyone in
your husband's command, you will likely
see them again. So be nice. Hell hath no
fury like an angry parent.

Hey MoneyMan!
My wife got a debit card
and said she wanted to use
it instead of writing checks
or using our credit card.
She felt it would help her
keep up with our spending
and save us money.
I believe something is
wrong because we contin-
ue to have all these fees
charged to our account and
it seems we get a lot of over-
draft charges. My wife says
she has never been given
an overdraft notice when
she uses the debit card but
for some reason the money
is still deducted.
What should we do to
keep from getting all these
overdraft fees?
MoneyMan Sez:
Get rid of the debit card.
Instead of rejecting trans-
actions when money is not
in your account, as they
should do, banks now sim-
ply charge overdraft fees.
Consequently, consumers
Volunteers needed


are now paying over $17
billion per year in fees for
overdraft charges and, for
young people from 18-24
years old, debit card point-
of-sale transactions are the
leading cause of overdrafts.
Bottom line: Keep track
of your account balances
and do not spend money
you do not have. These fees
can make small purchases
very expensive. For exam-
ple, in a recent r
eview of a service mem-
ber's account, I noticed that
he had made three debit
card purchases of around
$2 each. Because he had
no money in his checking
account, those purchases
for six bucks cost him over
$96!
Why? Because he wasn't
paying attention! If you
are going to use debit cards,
pay attention very close
attention.
More questions? Call Hey
MoneyMan at 778-0353.

N AS Jacksonville Sailor MA2 Robert
Calabro returned home from an
eight-month individual augmentee
(IA) tour in Iraq Dec. 11. Calabro is part
of a Military Working Dog (MWD) team
that was sent on an IA to assist the global
war on terrorism in bomb detection and
road clearing missions. MWD Nnick also
returned home last month.
Calabro and Nnick spent time in
Fallujah, Hurricane Point, and Camp
Ramadi, Iraq. The best part of the IA
according to Calabro, was working with
the other branches of the military. "The
worst part was not knowing what would
happen," Calabro said. "And the heat!" He
added that he missed his family the most.
Kimberly Vetterl, Calabro's girlfriend,
*and his father, Tony Calabro, surprised
,him by attending his homecoming at NAS
Jax. "I was not expecting that at all,"
Calabro said of the surprise.
Calabro received a police escort back to
NAS Jax from Jacksonville International
Airport and was welcomed back with a
crowd of friends and flashing lights from
police cars and a fire truck.


MA2 Robert Calabro hugs his friend, MA3
Robert Missey after returning to NAS
Jacksonville following an eight-month indi-
vidual augmentee tour in Iraq.
"Everyone deserves a welcome home,
especially our Sailors returning from com-
bat," MAC Tony Guyette stated. "As a
unit this is never a problem, but we must
constantly send our Sailors on IAs and
homecomings are always an afterthought.
I believe this is a huge disservice to them."
Guyette set up the homecoming for Calabro
and asked for help from all who could
attend. "I believe it is the right thing to
do," Guyette added.

T: he NAS Jacksonville Youth
Activities Center (YAC) held a holi-
day camp for children to participate
in during their Christmas break.
The kids received dancing lessons from
A Social Affair dance studio, went on field
trips to Chuck E. Cheese and the Orange
Park Mall movie theater, and participated
in Circus Fit along with the many other
daily activities offered at the YAC.
Circus Fit is a national youth fitness
program from Ringling Bros. and Barnum
& Bailey Circus that encourages America's
youth to lead healthy, active lifestyles by
combining the fun of circus skills with
stretching, strength building and aerobic
exercise. Circus Fit comes back to NAS
Jacksonville as a continued partnership
with Feld Entertainment, Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
SThe students also got free dance lessons
from Robbie Cox and Megan Lee, instruc-
tors from A Social Affair dance studio. The
dances they learned were the East Coast
swing, foxtrot, cha-cha, waltz, tango, East
Coast line dance, salsa and merengue. Cox
commented on why the dance studio chose
to participate in the free event for the kids,
"They asked us to be a part of the youth
program to help kids learn to dance, and
we decided as a group and as a company
to do this for free to show them what danc-


ing is all about. Ballroom dancing is very
proper, so it teaches the kids how to come
in contact with one another, how to ask a
lady to dance and to prepare them for later
in life to be gentlemen and ladies. It was
really great just to have the opportunity
to share what we love with this group of
kids," he said.
"The dancing is so much fun," said
Mercedes Pedraza, 8. You learn how to
dance and get to learn how to control your
dancing."
The group went to Chuck E. Cheese Dec.
19 and then to the Orange Park Mall movie
theater to see Alvin and the Chipmunks
the next week.
Other activities also helped keep the kids
busy over their Christmas breaks. The
newly opened YAC has foosball, numer-
ous video games, a new outside play area,
computer room, arts and crafts and many
other things.
Cameron Arthur, 9, liked the computer
room the best. "I love playing on computers
and there's a lot of stuff I know how to do
on the computer, so it's really fun to me,"
he said.
Alannah Cloxton, 6, enjoyed the "teal"
room. "You can dress up as whatever you
like over your clothes," she said. Each
classroom has a colored door that it is spec-
ified by a certain activity inside.
Sign ups will soon be taken for the YAC
summer camp. For more information,
please call 778-9772.

Public affairs officer




retires from CNRSE


By Kaylee LaRocque
ditor


C harles P. (Pat) Doo-
ling, Navy Region
Southeast public
affairs officer (PAO) for the
past 16 years, retired Jan.
2 after more than 39 years
federal service.
"After 39 and half years,
I am very much looking for-
ward to beginning a new
chapter in my life. My wife,
Jane has been retired for
three years and now we are
going to have the time to
travel and enjoy the things
we've worked so hard for all
these years," said Dooling.
Dooling, the son of a
retired Navy chief, was
-born at Naval Hospital
Key West and later moved
to Philadelphia and then
to South Carolina when
his father was transferred.
After graduating from high
school, he joined the Navy.
"I was a member of the
182nd company at RTC
[Orlando. Then I went to
cryptologic technician (CT)
school in Pensacola and
became a CT," he recalled.
His first tour took him to
Edzell, Scotland, followed
by tours in Okinawa, Japan
and on board USS Harold

the Vietnam Conflict.
"I left the Navy after my
four-year tour because my
'father passed away. If that
hadn't happened, I prob-
ably would have made it a
career," said Dooling.
After the Navy, Dooling
moved back to South
Carolina and was later hired
as an editorial assistant at
NS Charleston in 1972.
"Back then, we still used
waxers and typewriters.
We didn't have computers,
= everything was done the
.old-fashioned way," he said,
,laughing.
w- He decided to join the
-Naval Reserves and began
"-taking evening college class-
-es at The Citadel, where
:he majored in English. He
,.retired from the reserves as
.a chief petty officer in 1995
.after 26 years.
% Eventually, Dooling
-was promoted to PAO at
Commander, Navy Base/6th
' Naval District. He arrived
at NAS Jacksonville in 1992
to serve as the Helicopter
:2Wing U.S. Atlantic Fleet
'BPAO, later taking over as
.the base PAO until he was
.promoted to the region
PAO. As the region PAO,
Dooling oversaw public
"affairs programs for 22
installations within eight-
states and portions of the
Caribbean.
In 2005, he was the
only Navy civilian to direct
a command information
bureau, coordinating the
Navy's national media

campaign in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina.
"There have been lots
of highlights during my
career, but the biggest is all
the people I've met along
the way. I've worked with
some true professionals
who are very dedicated to
their jobs and to our Navy"
stated Dooling.
"I have a lot of great
memories and experiences.
We've done presidential vis-
its and I handled the pub-
lic affairs effort during the
invasion of Grenada when
all the American students
were rescued after the coup
there. Of course, there have
been some sad events as
well where we've lost some
Sailors and shipmates."
Over the years, Dooling
says probably the biggest
change he's seen is the
advance in technology.
"Definitely, the use of
computers. I fought com-
puters. I didn't want one.
That's been a huge change.
The innovations within the
newspaper field are just
unbelievable. The comput-
ers, new design programs,
fax machines and cell
phones have made a huge
impact on how we do our
jobs," he continued. "All our
work used to be done by
mail, phone and personal
delivery. All this new tech-
nology is a good thing and
a bad thing because now
we are connected 24/7. It's
instantaneous communica-
tion."
"Another 'big change
is that most of the young
Sailors coming into public
affairs today already have
their college degrees or are
working on their degrees.
This was unheard of years
ago," he added.
So what will Dooling miss


most? "I will definitely miss
the people. I've met some
really great friends along
the way. I will miss public
affairs; it's something I've
done all my adult life. And,
I'll miss the daily interac-
tion with the Navy," he said
with a smile.
"It'll be nice to be able
to go play golf whenever I y
want. From what I've been
told by some fellow retirees,
'every day is Saturday now."'
Dooling stresses that he
has many people to thank
who have impacted him
during the course of his
career. "I definitely want
to thank my wife and kids.
When I first started out, I
would go to work early in
the morning and not be
home until late at night.
We worked, long hours. ,.
I did that for lots of years
but always tried to balance
everything out and spend
time with my family."
"I also need to thank
Miriam Lareau who has
been my deputy here for
the past 16 years and who I
worked with in Charleston.
And, I have to thank the
other members of my staff
here, especially Sallie
Kehoe, Bill Dougherty,
Suzanne Speight and Petty
Officers Monica Nelson and
Marcel Barbeau, and all the
other civilians and petty
officers who have worked
in the public affairs office
over the years," continued
Dooling. "And, I would be
remiss if I did not mention
the public affairs officers at
our Navy Region Southeast
installations and their
staffs. They are all out-
standing, so dedicated and
loyal to the Navy."
In the future, the
Doolings plan to travel and
spend time with their kids.

Education funds now available for NAS Jax spouses


SBy Robert Fay
- Allied Schools Marketing

-Tn the weeks following the announce-
, |ment of the Military Spouse Career
.1l Advancement Initiative, a pilot pro-
,,gram that provides military spouses with
,'$3,000 a year for education funds, there's
""been strong interest from Navy spouses at
-NAS Jacksonville, as well as the other 17
=military bases in the program.
- Navy spouses at NAS Jacksonville are eli-
-gible for up to $3,000 a year for two years,
which includes tuition, books and other fees.
The funds are paid directly to the school so
spouses don't have to pay anything out-of-


pocket. Spouses can apply by ,going to the
base education center or family center.
To be eligible, spouses must have at least
a high school diploma or G.E.D., plus their
active-duty spouse must not be changing
duty-stations within the next year. The
program is only open to spouses of enlisted
personnel and junior officers.
For spouses who don't qualify, or for some
reason can't apply on time, a growing num-
ber of schools are offering military spouse
scholarships, discounts, tuition assistance
and even no-charge military spouse educa-
tion. When Sailors enroll using their tuition
assistance benefit, some schools allow their
spouses to enroll in training at no charge.

gets them off to a terrific start.
Lelia commented that "everyone has
been very nice and very helpful." She said
such support is especially important as
this is her first baby. She added that they
have been taking advantage of the MIU's
laptops and e-mail services to alert rela-

with digital photos. She said this is very
exciting for their parents as this is the first
grandchild for both sides of the family.
Lelia is from Brunswick, Ga., the daughter

Brian Gallardo and Shelley King.
Brian serves aboard USS McInerney

Naval flight officers


receive wings at VP-30


By Lt. Adam Schantz
VP-30 PAO


V P-30 presented four
new naval flight
officers (NFO) with
their coveted wings of gold
Dec. 20.
The event and recep-
tion in VP-30's auditorium
drew family members and
friends from around the
country as well as guests
and officers from com-
mands at NAS Jacksonville.
During the ceremony, VP-
30's Commanding Officer
Capt. Rich Fite award-
ed NFO wings to Lt. 2nd
Grade Patrick Leisner,
Lt. 2nd Grade Christian
Hegemann, both of the
German navy, CWO2 Dale
Courtney of Richmond, Va.
and CWO2 Adam Rittierodt
of Kent, Wash. Capt. Kyle
Cozad, commander Patrol
and Reconnaissance Wing
Eleven was the guest
speaker.
This class of undergradu-
ate maritime flight officers
is unique as it includes
two flying warrant officers.
These two officers are the
first to take advantage of a
program that allows enlist-
ed aircrew members to com-
mission as warrant officers
and join naval aviation.
Enlisted aircrew have
the option of being pilots
or naval flight officers and
can enter the helicopter, P-
3C Orion or E6R Tacamo
communities. Additionally,
the other two newly winged
aviators are the first inter-
national students to com-
plete the Undergraduate
Maritime Flight Officer
(UMFO) Program.
Leisner and Hegemann
are both German interna-
tional military students
who are training in the
United States as part of
the Foreign Military Sales


Program.
The four new NFOs have
completed 32 weeks of the
UMFO syllabus, earn-
ing their wings. They will
now enroll in VP-30's Fleet
Replacement Squadron syl-
labus for further advanced
training that will reinforce
their basic aircraft systems
knowledge and learn the
tactical operations of the P-
3C Orion aircraft.
The advanced training
will last six months and
upon their final gradua-
tion from VP-30, they will
report to various operation-
al patrol squadrons or to
their home country to begin
their initial operational fly-
ing tour.
The NFO training pipe-
line begins with Aviation
Preflight Introduction (API)
instruction in Pensacola,
Fla. where all aviation offi-
cers undergo a classroom

a


'Winter


enjoy


Wonderland'


By Kaylee LaRocque
itor

N Tot too many people
can say they actual-
: ly have seen it snow
in Florida but for the fami-
lies who came out to enjoy
the fifth annual Tropical
Freeze event at NAS Jax
Dec. 22, they witnessed the
flurries flying.
With overcast skies and
cooler temperatures, a
snowstorm hit the hills near
the Mulberry Cove Marina
allowing children, parents
Rnd friends to go sledding,
nake snow angels and have
Snowball fights.
: The event which is spon-
sored each year by the NAS
Jax Morale, Welfare and
Recreation Department,
provides a unique oppor-
tunity for families to have
some fun playing in the
snow in a place that nor-
mally doesn't get it. It is
created with ice and a spe-
cial snow machine. A sled
run is created down the hill
surrounded by bales of hay
so the children can slide
down safely on saucers.
Another play area was cre-
ated which soon turned into
a snowball frenzy.
"A lot of kids in Florida
don't get to see snow and
everyone wants a white
Christmas so this is a way
to give them one on base.
It's a free event and allows
them to play and go sled-
ding. There is also free food
courtesy of the yacht club
and it's just a good time for
everyone," said NAS Jax
Youth Activities Center
Director Megan Elliot.
"This is great! You don't
get snow in Jacksonville
like this very often. It's a lot
of fun. We're from Colorado,
but my little boy has never
seen snow before. It's really
a great event for the fam-
ily," said AT1(AW/NAC)
Keith Eash of VP-30.
The sledding trail proved
to be exciting for the young-
sters as they careened
through slick bends on
small plastic saucers that
kept them spinning out of
control. As they happily
trudged back up the hill
with their saucers after
their ride, they anxiously
got back in line for another
turn.

end. It was so cold," added

Southeast engineer Robert
"Chad" Johnson jumped into action
when he received a call at 6:45 a.m.
Dec. 6 to participate in search and
rescue operations at a parking garage
that was under construction when it
lirtially collapsed just an hour ear-

VlWhile workers were on site in down-
town Jacksonville, the parking garage
to the Berlkman Plaza partially, col-
lapsed leaving one worker missing
gnd several injured.
"It was our responsibility to keep
the search and rescue teams as safe
as possible by providing them with
locations of hazards, locating the saf-
est entry points into voids and provid-
ing methods to remove or secure large
pieces of debris'at the construction
site," said Johnson.
Johnson is a structural engineer
with NAVFAC Southeast Integrated
Product Team (IPT) South Atlantic,
a member of the NAVFAC Southeast
damage assessment team, and a
structural specialist with the State
of Florida Urban Search and Rescue
program attached with Florida
Task Force 5 (Jacksonville Fire and
Rescue).
The structural specialists were key
in providing vital information during
rescue operations.
"We climbed on to the debris pile
and marked the remains of the col-
umns that had collapsed," stated
Johnson. "We located major hazards
and gave guidance to the search
teams on removing debris around the
hazards."
Johnson provided the team struc-
tural advice on the support of tem-

porary landings made out of plywood
from the debris that was used for
walking around the search area. As
the search teams went into hazardous
areas, Johnson monitored the area to
warn the teams if the area became
too dangerous to continue their search
efforts.
"I was confident that the informa-
tion I provided the search teams was
vital to assure their safety," said
Johnson. No one from the search and
rescue teams was injured during the
event.
"In emergency situations, we report


as quickly as possible as the other
task forces are scattered through-
out Florida, and I knew they were
counting on me as I was here in
Jacksonville," said Johnson.
Johnson and Bradd Schwichtenberg,
an engineer with the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers, responded quickly and
participated in the initial search team
entry.
Both worked until about 4:30 p.m.
when structural specialists from
Daytona and Tallahassee arrived to
relieve them.
Johnson and Schwichtenberg
returned for the night shift from 11
p.m. Dec. 6 until 8:30 a.m. Dec. 7.
After four and a half hours of rest,
they returned at 1 p.m. Dec. 7 and
were released at 4 p.m. Dec. 7 when
sufficient state structural specialists
from Tampa and Orlando were on site
to fill the next two shifts.
The missing worker's body was
found at 5 a.m. Dec. 8, thereby end-
ing their mission. Johnson was on site
21 hours of the approximate 46 hour
search to provide search and rescue
structural specialist assistance.
"Both federal employees exposed
themselves to great personal dan-
ger and entered the rubble pile
and worked side by side with the
Jacksonville Fire and Rescue
Department," said Bruce Pastorini,
lead structures specialist for the
Florida Urban Search and Rescue
Task Force 5. "They both remained
on the pile and searched voids and
deconstructed rubble in areas of pos-
sible secondary collapse as four search
teams rotated on and off the site."
"The team worked well together
during a difficult and stressful situa-
tion," Johnson concluded.

FRCSE completes


prototype NASA S-3B

By Don Brown
FRCSE Business Management
Specialist


In December 2007,
the S-3 Fleet Support
Team (FST) of Fleet
Readiness Center Southeast
(FRCSE), helped deliver
an S-3B Viking aircraft to
the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration
(NASA) John. Glenn
Research Center in
Cleveland, Ohio in support
of NASA's Aeronautics and
Science Mission Research
programs for NASA.
The delivery concludes
nearly two years of exten-
sive aircraft and engine
research, modifications,
repairs and testing, which
took place at the Boeing
facility at Cecil Commerce
Center, NAS Jacksonville
and FRCSE, to transform
the S-3B Viking from a car-
rier based military aircraft
to a state-of-the-art NASA
research aircraft.
Preliminary discus-
sions for this project began
in February 2006 after
James Hall, an aerospace
engineer at the In Service
Support Center (ISSC),
informed FRCSE of poten-
tial workload opportunities.
Subsequent contact was
made by NASA Research
Pilot James Demers solic-
iting FRCSE's interest in
performing the repair, mod-
ification, and testing of one
TF34-400B engine.
This modification also
included an unusual
request from NASA for the
incorporation of the U.S. Air
Force version of the TF34
engine, the TF34-100A/B.
The engine was completed
and installed, and initial
testing was completed in
November.
Due to the decommis-
sioning of some Navy S-3
squadrons, there were some
surplus Viking aircraft
available.
Working with the S-
3/TF34 FST at ISSC, the
FRCSE Engineering and
Logistics FST, Program
Manager Air 290 and S-3
squadron teams from Sea
Control Wing U.S. Atlantic
Fleet, NASA was able to
acquire an S-3 Viking, pro-
pulsion system, and related

components directly from
the Navy.
Modifying and repairing
a surplus aircraft provided
substantial savings when
compared to the acquisition
costs for a new aircraft.
Ed Emery, aircraft exper-
iments manager, NASA
Glenn Research Center
said, "The recent modi-
fications to the S-3 have
made it (the NASA Glenn
Research Center) a world
class test facility. NASA
Glenn Research Center has
increased its aircraft capa-
bility two-fold. The S-3 is
allowing us to delve into
areas that were inaccessible
to us until now."
Additionally, FRCSE, a
leader in aircraft overhaul
and repair, has a full range
of aircraft painting capa-
bilities. NASA expressed an


interest in FRCSE painting
the S-3 with the special:-
ized NASA paint scheme.
FRCSE agreed and the
painting was completed
Dec. 4.
The modified S-3B will
begin its research career
conducting research flights
out of the Glenn Research
Center in Cleveland, Ohio
with future research mis-
sions planned to world-wide
locations in support of var-
ied NASA aeronautic and
science research missions. :
In addition to successfully
completing the prototype,
FRCSE has enhanced its
opportunity to be the pro-
vider of choice to NASA for
additional maintenance,
repair and modification
efforts in support of this
program.

New Navy Lodge policy


allows pets to stay with you


From the Navy Lodge
It's hard to leave your best buddy at
liome when you're traveling for any
period of time. At the Navy Lodge
Jacksonville we now welcome both of you.
The Navy Lodge now accepts four-footed
guests (dogs and cats) up to 50 pounds in
weight when traveling with their owners.
"More than 60 percent of all Americans
have pets and the military is no differ-
ent," said Donato Nosce, Navy Lodge
Jacksonville manager.
Military families need to come to the
Navy Lodge prepared in order to stay with
their pet. First, keep in mind how long you
will be gone and bring appropriate food and
other supplies and always travel with a pet
carrier. When you are at the Navy Lodge,
treat the area where you walk as if it were
your own yard and always clean up after
your pet, using the bags provided. Finally,
before you leave town, schedule a visit with
your veterinarian to update all medications
or treatments required and bring a copy of
each pet's vaccination record. It is also a
good idea to carry a health certificate for
each animal traveling with you if travel-
ing state to state or crossing international
borders. Always remember to bring the fol-
lowing on trips:
A sturdy leash and extra collar
An old blanket or sheet to make clean-
up easier wherever the pet's carrier will be
secured
Old sheets to cover bedding and furni-
ture once you reach your accommodation
Some of your pet's own bedding


Food & water bowl set
Treats
Toys or chew items
All required medications, supplements,
and preventatives
Brush or comb and lint remover
For cats, a full litter pan with extra lit-
ter, liners, and newspaper to place under-
neath for cats
Waste removal bags
Old towels, carpet cleaner, disinfectant
spray, and trash bags for accidents; and
flashlight for those nighttime walks
When at your Navy Lodge with your pet
treat the area where you walk as if it were
your own yard, always clean up after your
pet, and use the bags provided. Your cour-
tesy will spread to others.
Navy Lodges are on average 40 percent
less expensive than comparable civilian
accommodations, but still have all of the
same amenities. Every guest room is over-
sized with cable TV with HBO, a DVD,
CD player, Internet connection, direct-dial
telephone service and a kitchenette com-
plete with microwave and utensils.
Navy Lodges also have housekeeping
service, vending machines, DVD rental ser-
vice and guest laundry facilities as well as
handicapped accessible and non-smoking
rooms. Free local calls, free in-room cof-
fee and newspapers as well as convenient
on-base parking are also available during
your stay.
To make a reservation at Navy Lodge
Jacksonville for you and your pet, call 772-
6000 or toll free at 1-800-NAVY-INN.

'Mad Foxes' deck the halls


By MC3 (AW)
Harry Rucker III
VP-5

n the spirit of the holi-
days and competition,
the "Mad Foxes" of
VP-5 put on a holiday door
decorating competition
Dec. 7 amongst the vari-
ous shops in the VP-5 han-
gar spaces. VP-5's CMDCM
Jeffrey Alcott headed up
the competition saying that
it was a good way to boost
morale and ring in the hol-
idays. "It was cool that so
many Sailors participated
and genuinely had a good
time," he said.
The stakes were high,
as the winning shop would
receive a pizza lunch and,
of course, bragging rights.
The guest judges for the
contest were CMDCM(SW)
Chris Green, NAS Jax
command master chief,
CMDCM Rich Hay,
Commander, Patrol and
Reconnaissance Wing
Eleven command mas-
ter chief and CMDCM Les
Hatfield, VP-16 command
master chief. They com-
mented how it was a great


event and they enjoyed see-
ing such participation and
team work. The special
guest was the one and only
Santa Claus who put big
smiles on Sailor's faces as
he greeted them with "Ho-
Ho-Ho," and passed out
candy canes.
It was a close competi-
tion but in the end the
Warfare and Development
Department pulled out the
victory. AT3 Kenneth Reed
said, "we play to win," and
that "Chief Brian Bowins
made it clear with a can do
attitude we could get that
pizza." Not far behind in the
chase, the Administration
Department claimed that
they should, have won


because their door had a
classic professional look.
Operations YN3 Joann
Gonzalez said giggling, "I
just had fun and it was all
about the holiday spirit, but
the Ops door still should
have won."
At the end of the com-
petition, the halls of VP-5
appeared a little brighter,
not just because of the
holiday decorations, but
because of the smiles on
every Sailor's face.
Walking down the
hall, IT3 Joshua Predieri
explained, "It's very intrigu-
ing that our command
emphasized spreading holi-
day cheer. I feel very joy-
ful."

came early to the Mauler families as they greeted their
loved ones who had been away since the first week of
July. A few Sailors met their newborn children for the
first time as three Maulers became new fathers while on

Command Master Chief Adrian Andrews remarked,
"President John F. Kennedy once said, 'Ask not what
your country can do for you, but what can you do for
your country.' The Sailor's of VS-32 lived up to this chal-
lenge in completing back-to-back deployments supporting
our country's rights to liberty and freedom. Each Sailor
:assigned to VS-32 has talked the talk and walked the
walk in doing their part for their country."
Fifteen Mauler Sailors had more than pictures of life
aboard the aircraft carrier to share as they took 29 friends
and family members aboard the ship for a three-day Tiger
Cruise to Norfolk, Va. Those Sailors returned home to
Jacksonville Dec. 19. In addition to experiencing the dif-
ficulties of shipboard life, from the cramped racks to the
confined dining facilities, the Tigers were also treated to
a rare demonstration of naval air power from the flight
deck.
The Maulers had a busy combat cruise. After achieving
carrier qualifications for 10 pilots and conducting a brief
sustainment exercise off the Eastern seaboard, the "Big E"
crossed the Atlantic Ocean and spent nearly two weeks in
the Mediterranean Sea.
The Enterprise transited the Suez Canal Aug. 1 and
reached its station in the Arabian Gulf to begin its sup-
port of Operation Iraqi Freedom Aug. 10. If you are ever
thinking about visiting the Middle East in the summer,
as AT2 Aaron Clifford can attest, the Maulers recommend
you avoid it. "The stretch in August was some of the most
brutal heat, I've ever felt," said Clifford. "Daily tempera-
tures on the flight deck climbed to over 110 degrees before
jet engines started turning. With up to 15 aircraft engines
online, temperatures routinely reached 130 degrees and
higher."
:VS-32 brought newly fitted low altitude navigation and
:targeting infrared for night pods to the fight with their six
jets, which offered unprecedented infrared sensor capabili-
lies for the S-3B Viking in theatre. In addition to fulfilling
,its role as Carrier Air Wing One's (CVW-1) primary organ-
,ic tanker, providing more than 800,000 pounds of fuel
to the air wing, the Maulers provided essential surface,
;search and reconnaissance to the carrier battle group,
:ensuring the ship was safe from any potential threats.
VS-32 played a vital role in monitoring Iranian naval
activity, as well as searching and identifying high value
*targets in the global war on terrorism. These missions, as
.well as daily presence patrols, directly contributed to the
security and stability of the free trade of oil and theatre
cooperation efforts.
In addition, the squadron detached an aircraft, four
:arcrew and maintenance support to join some of its air
Ving F/A-18s to Shaikh Isa Air Base in Bahrain to provide
Serial refueling support for Nautical Artist, a weeklong
air-to-air exercise with the Royal Saudi and Bahraini Air
,orces.
-The Maulers only enjoyed four port calls on their deploy-
ment, spending 13 days on land over their six months
at sea. VS-32 first stopped in Cannes, France for two
nights and three days July 26-28. Although the famed
film festival did not overlap with the Maulers visit, the
YFrench Riviera did not disappoint as many Sailors took
Morale, Welfare and Recreation-sponsored tours to Nice
and Monte Carlo. Lt. Cmdr. Scott Giles even checked out
,an exciting Pyrenees mountain stage of the famous Tour
:De France, riding, his bicycle up the mountain leg just
hours before the race.
The Maulers visited Dubai in the United Arab Emirates
three times between September and November, providing
,rome much needed rest and relaxation from a rigorous
!perational schedule. Popular activities included desert
:afaris, camel rides, indoor snow skiing at the Mall of the
Emirates, the Wild Wadi Water Park and tours of the
'Burj Al Arab hotel. Many Sailors were spotted shopping
for Persian carpets and looking for bargains in the gold
Mid spice souks.
=The "Big E" completed its combat operations Nov. 24
Mnd headed out the way it came, through the Straits of
1lormuz, Red Sea, Suez Canal, Mediterranean Sea, Straits
Zf Gibraltar and finally across the Atlantic for its return
,ome celebration.
Z VS-32 flew more hours and traps per pilot and per air-
craft than any other squadron in CVW-1, completing more
than 960 sorties, 2,100 flight hours and 940 traps (558 at
night). Mauler pilots recorded a remarkable 97.4 percent
combat boarding rate, the highest in CVW-1. Lt. Cmdr.
James Reynolds, Lt. Brad Whittington and Lt. John
Hilburn were awarded Top Ten Hook awards for their
superior carrier landing performances.
VS-32 maintenance personnel displayed tireless dedica-
tion and hard work in getting the oldest aircraft on the
flight deck airborne consistently, fixing more than 20,000
aircraft discrepancies and achieving a phenomenal 97.5
percent sortie completion rate.
Thirty-five Maulers earned their enlisted aviation war-
fare pin and 17 more earned their enlisted surface warfare
specialty designation. In addition, the Maulers pinned
four new chiefs and 27 Maulers were promoted to E-4
through E-6.
As the end of deployment marked the last time VS-32
aircrew would trap aboard an aircraft carrier in an S-3,
some officers looked ahead to flying newer, more techno-
logically advanced platforms, but every Mauler looked
back nostalgically upon their time flying the "Hoov" off of
aircraft carriers.


It seemed Lt John Hilburn got it right, "As much as we
are happy to be home, we will all cherish our time flying
the old S-3 and will miss it."

NOSC: Change of Command for Augment Unit


From Page 1

to assume command of Navy Personnel
Pay Support Center Detachment B.
Commanding Officer of NOSC
Jacksonville Capt. Lynn McCarthy began
the ceremony by welcoming the guest
speaker Rear Adm. Patricia Wolfe, com-
mander, Logistics Task Force Pacific.
"We are fortunate indeed to have such
a noteworthy speaker with us today," said
McCarthy.
"Rear Adm. Wolfe epitomizes the opera-
tional reserve, having been mobilized sev-
eral times over her reserve career. Her
most recent mobilization was as command-
er, Navy Expeditionary Logistics Support
Group Forward at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait
returning just this past October."
Wolfe took the stage following
McCarthy's welcoming and addressed the
audience.
"Today we witness multiple changes
of command the transfer of authority
from one commanding officer to another,"
she said. "For these five very fine and
important units supported by NOSC
Jacksonville, the reading of orders today
signifies a change in leadership for these


Sailors."

with NOSC


Jacksonville began 11 years ago when
she assumed command of Cargo Handling
Battalion Eleven.
"The NOSC and the region have gone
through many changes in these past 11
years, including a name change from
reserve centers, to more accurately reflect
what our Reserve Sailors do," she con-
tinued. "The ultimate importance of our
Reserve commands and their capabilities
is to provide unique, immediate and criti-
cal resources to support our military oper-
ations, our country and our Navy. Our
citizen Sailors are busier today with more
than 47 percent of them having served
some period of extended active duty since
9/11.
"Serving as the commanding officer of
any unit is all about the Sailors that make
the unit hum," said Wolfe. "As the CO,
these officers guide their Sailors to sharpen
their skills, work together as a team and
be ready to deploy at a moment's notice."
Following the changes of command
McCarthy told the commanding officers,
"the Navy reposes its utmost confidence
and faith in your abilities to continue the
high states of readiness your predecessors
have achieved. There will continue to be
challenges as we respond to whatever mis-
sions our Navy assigns us in the future."
