S o far, 2009 has been a year of
accomplishments for the "Dusty
Dogs" of HS-7 as they approach a
rigorous work-up cycle as part of Carrier
Air Wing Three (CVW-3) on board USS
Harry S. Truman (CVN-75).
"As we approach COMTUEX (Combined
Training Unit Exercises) with the Truman
Strike Group, our squadron is well-prepped
for any mission," said HS-7 Commanding
Officer Cmdr. Sean Mordhorst. "Dusty
Dog aircrews and maintainers have safely
and professionally met every challenge as
we prepare for our deployment this fall."
It all began back in January when HS-7
began its grueling Helicopter Advanced
Readiness Program (HARP) training.


ing program that challenged the squadron
in each of its primary mission areas: naval
special warfare (NSW); combat search
and rescue (CSAR); anti-surface warfare
(ASUW); and anti-submarine warfare
(ASW) .
HSCWSL used classroom instruction,
simulators and aircraft events to train
and challenge the Dusty Dogs.. The NAS
Jacksonville-based Officer in Charge, Lt.
Cmdr. Michael Sypniewski, and his team
of Seahawk weapons and tactics instruc-
tors provided external assets from several

improved the squadron's ASUW readiness.
The 20th ASOS provided call-for-fire
to HS-7 Seahawks that employed crew-
served weapons, as well as simulated
AGM-114 Hellfire missiles against ground
targets. The Dusty Dogs qualified multiple

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO

NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr. and members of the base
safety office were presented the Secretary
of the Navy (SECNAV) Award for Achievement in
Safety Ashore in the large non-industrial category
by Commander, Navy Region Southeast Rear Adm.
Townsend Alexander June 3.
This award is presented annually to recognize Navy
and Marine Corps shore activities and ashore fleet
operational support units for their quality occupation-
al safety and health programs.
In an April 28 letter signed by Deputy Assistant
Secretary of the Navy (Safety) Tom Rollow, he stat-
ed, "You can take great pride in your command's
superior Occupational Safety and Health Program
recognized by this award. The effectiveness of your
safety program is proven by your outstanding safety
record resulting from your committed leadership,
employee engagement and innovation in operational
risk 'management. Your command is recognized for
its consistent safety excellence, and has one of the
Department of the Navy's premier programs. Your
continuing pursuit of safety excellence has resulted
in a long-term trend of civilian and military mishap
reduction, innovative safety improvement programs
and plans, and proactive safety activities. It is no sur-
prise that your command was the first to conduct the
Military Sportbike Rider Course that is now manda-
tory Navy-and Marine Corps-wide. Of note, is your
novel approach to increasing employee safety engage-
ment by awarding Morale, Welfare and Recreation
Services 'Safety Bucks' to those who contribute to a
safer installation. Congratulations to you and all your
personnel who have truly made 'mission first, safety
always - all day, every day' an intrinsic part of your
command's culture. I wish you continued success with""
your Occupational Safety and Health Program."
In addition to winning this award, the station
recently won the 2008 Chief of Naval Operations
Occupational Health Ashore Safety Award in the large,
installation category proving that NAS Jacksonville is
truly dedicated to safety.

Due to funding cuts for FY-10, near-

vendors NETg and SkillSoft will no longer
be available on Navy Knowledge Online

The NETg and SkillSoft catalog available

personal enrichment. Courses include con-
tent on business and professional develop-
ment, desktop computing and information
..technology including test preparation for
IT certifications.
"Unfortunately, the funding that sup-

2of a $25 million cut during the FY-10
budget cycle," said John Phillips, produc-
'tion requirements manager for the Naval
z2Vducation and Training Command. "As a
headquarters, we have received significant


budget cuts and have had to make some
hard choices on what programs to contin-

only 4 percent of our annual eLearning

The parable of



the fruit tree


By Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top
Special contributor


There once was a certain man who
tended his own gardens with loving
attention and incredible skill. One
day, he had just begun to prune one of his
fruit trees when he heard a
sobbing voice plead with him.
"Please, don't do that to me! It
hurts me so much."
After looking around to
make sure it wasn't some kind
of a joke, the gardener kindly
responded to the talking tree.
"I'm really sorry that this hurts
you. I hope you will forgive me
and understand that my inten- -
tions were pure." But then, just
as the tree had begun to trust Chaplain (I
its caretaker, the gardener picked up his
pruners and cut off another branch.
"No!" shouted the tree, "How could you do
such a thing to me? You are supposed to be
taking care of me. Can't you see that what
you are doing is causing me harm?"
The wise gardener waited patiently as
the tree vented its frustrations, then qui-
etly responded, "My dear tree, I'm afraid
it is you who cannot see. I know this hurts
you, but it would cause you more harm if I.
did not prune you."
"That can't possibly be 'true," argued the
tree. "Every year I make such wonderful
growth. I get so full and green. Then you
come along and cut me back. You are hold-
ing me back. If it weren't for you, I could
become the great tree I am supposed to be.
I could become as great as the giant oak
across the road."
The gardener now knew that the tree did
not understand its own purpose. He wanted
to explain, but he knew that the tree was so
focused on its own hurt that it may not be
willing to listen.
"My dear tree, you have no idea what you
are supposed to be,"and you are quite con-
fused about what will make you great."
The gardener quickly continued before


the tree could misunderstand and get
offended. "I planted you here for a purpose.
I chose ybu for this spot because I knew
you would be great, but not great in the
way that you think you should be. There
are many different trees in my garden.
They all have a. different purpose and can
become truly great only by ful-
filling their purpose. The oak
tree fulfills its purpose by being
large and providing shade and
a place for the children to climb
and play. You, however, are not
an oak. If I were to allow you to
Grow the way the oak does, it
\ .. would destroy you."
"How could it possibly destroy
, me to let me grow unhindered?"
snapped the tree.
t.) Justin Top "I want you to grow, but not
in the ways that you think are important.
You are a fruit tree. Only by becoming
what I intend for you to become will you
truly be great. If I let your branches grow
as you wish, you will not be able to cre-
ate the quality of fruit that you could with
my help, because all your strength will go
into the branches. But when I carefully cut
off selected branches, - you begin to build
strength in your roots"
The responded, "But if I am only growing
stronger in my roots, how will I know'if I
am actually progressing? Nobody can see
my roots. Even I can't see.them."
"Remember that I measure growth dif-
ferently than you do. The kind of growth
I am after is not always visible - but you
will know by your fruit," said the garden-
er. "Trust me to do my work, and I prom-
ise that you will bring forth fruit much
more beautiful and sweeter than you ever
thought possible. It will still hurt when
I prune you. But when you feel the pain,
remember it is proof that I am keeping my
end of the bargain and helping you become
what you were meant to be."
May we always trust the gardener to
help us grow to our full potential, even if it
sometimes causes pain. *

Hospital's 'Iron Chef' competition stimulates the taste buds
By Loren Barnes
NHJ Public Affairs


The Child Street Caf6
at Naval Hospital
Jacksonville was the
site of an "Iron Chef' com-
petition May 20 that pitted
two teams of talented culi-
nary specialists in a head-
to-head culinary skills
match up.
Team members were
selected by Leading Chief
Petty Officer CSC(SW)
Ariel Aranzaso who orga-
nized the cooking competi-
tion. He plans to host this
competition every couple of
months in order to foster
culinary excellence, team-
work and camaraderie in
his galley crew.
The judging was based
on taste, presentation and
originality. Judges were
selected from the hospital
staff. Aranzaso will invite
representatives from base
tenant commands to judge
future competitions.
The members of the win-
ning team received a cer-
/ tificate and special liberty.
Aranzaso is also working on
a plaque with brass plates
inscribed with the winning
team's names for display in
the galley.

including Polo Chicken,
"Asparagus Red," which
included red peppers, a trife
cake for dessert and Mojitos
for the beverage.
Early Warning team
leader CS2(SW/AW) Celilio
Innis said, "It felt really
good. This was one of my


first competitions since
becoming a culinary spe-
cialist and it gave us special
bragging rights."
He noted that because he
and his teammates work
primarily in the galley's
admin office -and nobody
thought they could cook.
"This was real confidence
builder," he said.
CS2(SW) Andrae Keith of
team "Beasts of the East"
said, "Yeah, even though we
didn't win, I was impressed


by how everyone stepped up
and really competed."
His team prepared cheese
and spinach stuffed chick-
en, potatoes au gratin and
sweet baked Parmesan
tomatoes and banana pud-
ding for dessert.
Keith offered his con-
gratulations to the winners,
"I was impressed with the
menu and presentation of

was a fun experience. We'll
be back!"

- USS Benham (DD-397) rescued Cunningham and more than
700 other survivors. They were taken to Pearl Harbor where
they were greeted by Commander, U.S. Third Fleet Adm.
William Halsey Jr. and Adm. Nimitz.
"They lined us up, wounded and all, so we could shake
hands with the admirals. Then the injured guya were taken
to the hospital. I had internal injuries with blood coming from
my mouth - caused by the blast. I was back on duty in about a
week," he recalled.
; .Cunningham fought in two of the most important battles in
the Pacific, which ultimately turned the tide in the Pacific and
essentially put Japan on the defensive.
George Bernard Shaw said, "We are made wise not by the
recollect ion of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.
SEvery American should understand the personal sacrifices
our nation's war heroes like Cunningham make so that we
-may enjoy freedom.
He summed it up by saying, "They tell me that recruits and
Sailors in training should know about the Battle of Midway. It
is just one of those big events in history that we went through.
Of course kids that young - 18 and 19 years old - didn't think
much about it at the time."

Work and Family Life Symposium draws global audience

ByAWVAN Scott Beach I . .w L


More than 250
Work and Family
Life (WFL) pro-
fessionals attended
the Professional Skills
Development Symposium at
NAS Jacksonville June 2-5.
Christine DeGraw pro-
gram analyst for Family
Readiness Programs
Commander, Navy
Installations Command
(CNIC) explained, "We're
developing a business plan
with goals and objectives to
benefit all of our Fleet and
Family Support Centers
(FFSC), our Sailors and
our family members. One
of the goals was to hold this
world-wide work and fam-
ily life conference at NAS
Jacksonville. We wanted
to hold the symposium
at a naval facility. NAS
Jacksonville has a wonder-
ful conference center, lots of
break-out space and audio
visual support on site. They
were able to meet all of our
needs. They have been more
than generous and have
done a great job."
The conference consisted
of classroom sessions on
topics such as professional
skills development, cre-
ative training techniques,
Ombudsman training, Navy
child and youth programs,
social networking and the
federal hiring process.
"Everything has been
running smoothly. We've
had some great speakers
and the master chief panel
went really well. It was
good for our folks to hear

CBMU 202 Det Jax Officer in Charge Lt. Reginold Cozart
(right) discusses with Capt. Scorby how the Navy's
Maintenance, Material Management System aids in keeping
the Seabee's equipment inventory up and ready to roll.


SEABEES: 'Green points' for

energy efficiency to be included

From Page 1

provide most of the skilled labor required for the sub-
grade utilities, foundation, concrete block walls, steel
erection and electrical systems - with certain phases, such
as HVAC, contracted out. This project is great because it
enables Seabees to hone their construction skill sets, as
well as cross-train with other rates."
Ensign Russ McCaskill of NAS Jax Public Works
Department is the project manager. "The budget is about'
$810,000 and the build time is estimated at 15 months,
weather permitting. Wherever possible, we're incorporat-
ing 'green points' for energy efficiency, water reclamation,
and even how we site the building. When this project is
complete, the original admin office will be demolished and
returned to green space," added McCaskill.
Crew Leader BU2 Sean Kidwell is in charge of running
the project day to day. "It's my job to make sure every day
runs according to plan and jobs are accomplished. That
means materials are properly staged and any special tools
or equipment are ready to go. Of course, constructing this
project with quality and safety is always top of mind," said
Kidwell.
Kidwell leads a crew of 10 Seabees from construction)
specialties such as, builders, electricians, steelworkers,
equipment operators and utilitiesmen. "While each Seabee
has a primary rate, we're also jacks of all trades who pitch
in wherever we're needed to get the job done," he con-"
cluded.
Lt. Reginald Cozart, officer in charge of CBMU 202
Detachment Jacksonville, thanked Scorby for his support.
"I know our skipper is a champion of replacing obsolete,
World War II-era buildings at NAS Jacksonville. This'
construction project will bring our Seabees compound into
the 21st century. The building's first floor will house our
command element and the top floor will house our confer-
ence and classroom space, plus, men's and women's locker
rooms. When our new administration facility is complete
- two cramped and inefficient buildings will go down."

Minor league litigation


Getting the most


out of your small


claims court case

By Lt j.g. Matt Roush, JAGC
Special Contributor


S sometimes you have no choice. You've tried to be
reasonable, you've tried to work the situation
out and get what you're owed. But for whatever
reason, the other side, be it a mechanic, a neighbor.
or some dther party that damaged you, just won't
cooperate. So you're left with no choice but to take
that person to court.
While small claims court may not neces- .
sarily be an ideal use of your time, it
is often the best way to get what
you are owed. Going
before a judge and
making your case .
may be the only
way to get that
opposing party to -
pay up. When you
reach the point that filing suit is your best option,
there are some things to keep in mind as you get ready
for your case.
The most important aspect of a small claims court
case is evidence. So, your biggest task in prepara-
tion is compiling everything you have to back up
your case-photos, receipts, documents, anything that
spells out what you're owed and who owes it to you. It
is also often very helpful to have in-person testimony.
If you have access to someone who witnessed the event
or can testify expertly as to any damage incurred,
it can be very persuasive. In the event those people
aren't available for in-person testimony, you can sub-
mit letters from them to the court.
When you actually get to court, the key words to
remember are speed and clarity. Understand that
these judges are very busy. They do not want to hear
sob stories about why you need the amount you're
asking for. Instead, quickly get to the point. Describe
generally the event that led to your claim. Then imme-
diately state the amount you are seeking, and proceed
to walk the judge through the exact details that led to
your loss.
The beauty of the small claims court system is its
simplicity. You don't need to be represented by an
attorney in these cases, provided that you take the
time to do the necessary preparation in advance of
your case. Collect your evidence, organize your case
into a clear series of causes and effects, and be clear
and concise with the judge, and you stand a good
chance to get back whatever was taken from you.

Men: Get your health checked


From Naval Branch Health Clinic Mayport

M en's Health Month aims to heighten the aware-
ness of preventable health problems and encour-
age early detection and treatment of disease
among men and boys. This month gives health care pro-
viders, public policy makers, the media, and individuals
an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regu-
lar medical advice and preventive medicine.
This year, an estimated 675,300 American males will
be diagnosed with cancer. The three male-only can-
cers are prostate, testicular and penile.
These have high survival rates even
though the long- and short-term side (.
effects of treatment can have signifi-
cant effects on quality of life.
Men also have a higher incidence
than women of other cancers such as I
lung, liver, bladder and kidney cancer.
Because early detection is key to long-
term survival with most cancers, regular
screening in at-risk populations and vigi-
lance to changes in one's own body are impor-
tant.
For American men over the age of 55. the three .
most deadly cancers are lung cancer, prostate can-
cer, and colon cancer.
* Nine out of 10 men who die from lung cancer were
smokers at one point in their lives. Routine chest X-rays
cannot warn people in time as the damage to the tissues
has already been done. The best advice for smokers is that
it's never too late to quit smoking or avoid second-hand
smoke. The earlier you quit, the lower the risk of develop-
ing lung cancer.
* For prostate cancer, three out of four symptoms are


found in men over 65 and the risk is twice as high for
African Americans as it is for whites. A high-fat diet also
increases the risk of developing prostate cancer. Talk to
your doctor about what type of prostate cancer testing best
suits you. Testing recommendations can vary depending
upon your current health and family health history - and
may include a digital'rectal exam (DRE) and Prostate
Specific Antigen (PSA) blood testing.
At the age of 45, African American
men and men with a fir4t-degree relative
S(father, brother and/or son) diagnosed with
prostate cancer before age 65 should dis-
cuss DRE and PSA screening with their
doctor. At the age of 50, all men should
have an annual DRE and PSA blood
' testing with their doctor.
* Colorectal cancer is responsible
for nearly 73,000 cases of cancer of the
, colon or rectum diagnosed in American
men this year. Most men should start
I some sort of screening regimen at age
50. Men at higher risk of colorectal cancer
should start screening at age 40. Risk
factors include a. personal or family his-
tory of cancer or lumps (polyps) of the colon
or rectum. A high-fat diet, smoking and obesity may add
to the risk as well. A key to successfully treating such a
cancer is early diagnosis. It is crucial to see a physician
when a person displays the following symptoms:
- Bleeding from the rectum
- See blood in the stool
- Notice a change in the bowel habits
For additional information, contact your healthcare pro-
vider with any concerns about your preventive health care
needs.

Hospital's 'Iron Chef' competition stimulates the taste buds
By Loren Barnes
NHJ Public Affairs .


The Child Street Caf6
at Naval Hospital
Jacksonville was the
site of an "Iron Chef' com-
petition May 20 that pitted
two teams of talented culi-
nary specialists in a head-
to-head culinary skills
match up.
Team members were
selected by Leading Chief
Petty Officer CSC(SW)
Ariel Aranzaso who orga-
nized the cooking competi-
tion. He plans to host this
competition every couple of
months in order to foster
culinary excellence, team-
work and camaraderie in
his galley crew.
The judging was based
on taste, presentation and
originality. Judges were
selected from the hospital
staff. Aranzaso will invite
representatives from base
tenant commands to judge
future competitions.
The members of the win-
ning team received a cer-
tificate and special liberty.
Aranzaso is also working on
a plaque with brass plates
inscribed with the winning
team's names for display in
the galley.

Naval Hospital Jax Iron Chef winning team "Early Warning" is comprised of CS2(SW) Kenneth
Williams, CS2(SW/AW) Celisio Innis and CS2(SW) Gabriel Arrington. Wearing white smocks
is team "Beasts of the East" consisting of CS2(SW) Roosevelt Overton, CS2(SW) Andrae Keith
and CS3 Evelyn Sanetra.


Dubbed "Early Warning,"
the winning team's cooking
and presentation was right
on target.
They impressed the judg-
es with a series of entrees
including Polo Chicken,
"Asparagus Red," which
included red peppers, a trife
cake for dessert and Mojitos
for the beverage.
Early Warning team
leader CS2(SW/AW) Celilio
Innis said, "It felt really
good. This was one of my


first competitions since
becoming a culinary spe-
cialist and it gave us special
bragging rights."
He noted that because he
and his teammates work
primarily in the galley's
admin office -and nobody
thought they could cook.
"This was real confidence
builder," he said.
CS2(SW) Andrae Keith of
team "Beasts of the East"
said, "Yeah, even though we
didn't win, I was impressed


by how everyone stepped up
and really competed."
His team prepared cheese
and spinach stuffed chick-
en, potatoes au gratin and
sweet baked Parmesan
tomatoes and banana pud-
ding for dessert.
Keith offered his con-
gratulations to the winners,
"I was impressed with the
menu and presentation of
team Early Warning. This
was a fun experience. We'll
be l.irk'

SURVIVOR: 'They lined

us up, wounded and all,

so we could shake hands


sides of me died and just floated away," he said.
USS Benham (DD-397) rescued Cunningham and more than
700 other survivors. They were taken to Pearl Harbor where
they were greeted by Commander, U.S. Third Fleet Adm.
William Halsey Jr. and Adm. Nimitz.
"They lined us up, wounded and all, so we could shake
hands with the admirals. Then the injured guys were taken
to the hospital. I had internal injuries with blood coming from
my mouth caused by the blast. I was back on duty in about a
week," he recalled.
Cunningham fought in two of the most important battles in
the Pacific, which ultimately turned the tide in the Pacific and
essentially put Japan on the defensive.
George Bernard Shaw said, "We are made wise not by the
recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.
Every American should understand the personal sacrifices
our nation's war heroes like Cunningham make so that we
may enjoy freedom.
He summed it up by saying, "They tell me that recruits and
Sailors in training should know about the Battle of Midway. It
is just one of those big events in history that we went through.
Of course kids that young 18 and 19 years old didn't think
much about it at the time."

SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE



'Can Do' Seabees


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor


The Navy is an amazing organization
with incredibly diverse capabili-
ties. This week we begin a six-week
series on the various com-
munities and capabilities
of the U.S. Navy starting
with Naval Construction
Forces, the "Seabees."
Many of us are prob- &
ably aware of the local /
Seabee unit (Navy Mobile
Construction Battalion
and Construction Battalion
Maintenance Unit) on our
bases. The Seabees have a
rich heritage dating back
to 1941 when Rear Adm.
Moreell recommended the
establishment of naval Beth
'construction battalions.'
Their motto, "We build, we fight," says it
all. The Seabees have participated in every
conflict since WWII building roadways,
airstrips, entire bases and far too many
construction projects to list throughout
the world. Seabees have left their imprint
on numerous islands across the Pacific
(WWII), Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, and of
course, Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait.
One Seabee wife once described Seabees as
"Construction workers with guns." Seabees
are the ground troops of the Navy deploy-
ing "boots on the ground" throughout the
world.
The Seabee mission is not limited to com-
bat construction. From as early as 1953,
the Seabee mission includes "goodwill
ambassadorship." Beginning with recovery
efforts after devastating earthquakes in
Greece the Seabees launched "civic action
teams" providing construction work and
training to underdeveloped countries. The
Seabees have built schools, infrastructure
and healthcare facilities across the globe.
While embedded on board USNS
Comfort, I had the privilege of observ-
ing this group in action. Numbering only
21 Seabees, the team exemplified their
"can do" motto. During 10 days in the
Dominican Republic, the Seabees worked


Every drop counts


on the National Research Lab, a scien-
tific facility where blood and DNA will be
stored for medical research. The Seabees
arrived at a shell of a building and in days
completed the electrical, structural and
HVAC work needed to complete the proj-
ect. While that project was
underway they also com-
pleted the addition of a
classroom to a local school.
Amazing what 21 Seabees
can accomplish.
Seabee training is
hands-on including expe-
ditionary combat skills
(ECS) in Gulfport, Miss.
ECS is a basic combat
skills curse where they
learn orienteering (map-
reading), land navigation,
battlefield first aid, and
Vilson other combat-related skills
including marksmanship
with M16 rifles and M9 pistols. About a
third of Seabees are assigned to public
works department at naval installations
across the world.
John Wayne starred in The Fighting
Seabees (1944) a fictionalized portrayal
of the birth of the Seabees. Seabees were
also featured in the musical South Pacific.
Ward Cleaver, father on the show Leave
it to Beaver, was a Seabee. Al Borland
(played by actor Richard Karn), sidekick to
Tim Taylor on Home Improvement was a
Seabee. By the way, Karn's real life father
was a Seabee who served in WWII.
Seabees spouses experience "FX" (field
exercises) in preparation for deployment
(as opposed to "work-ups" in the fleet).
Their deployment communication and con-
cerns differ from the fleet. Cell phone calls
from the deployed Seabee are not unusual.
Seabee spouse groups offer support and for
spouses and children.
For more information on the Seabees
check out www.seabeesmuseum.com
and www.navy.mil/navydata/personnel/
seabees/seabeel.html. Questions or com-
ments? Email Beth at beth@homefrontin

Work and Family Life Symposium draws global audience

By AWVAN Scott Beach
Staff Writer


M ore than 250
Work and Family
Life (WFL) pro-
fessionals attended
the Professional Skills
Development Symposium at
NAS Jacksonville June 2-5.
Christine DeGraw pro-
gram analyst for Family
Readiness Programs
Commander, Navy
Installations Command
(CNIC) explained, "We're
developing a business plan
with goals and objectives to
benefit all of our Fleet and
Family Support Centers
(FFSC), our Sailors and
our family members. One
of the goals was to hold this
world-wide work and fam-
ily life conference at NAS
Jacksonville. We wanted
to hold the symposium
at a naval facility. NAS
Jacksonville has a wonder-
ful conference center, lots of
break-out space and audio
visual support on site. They
were able to meet all of our
needs. They have been more
than generous and have
done a great job."
The conference consisted
of classroom sessions on
topics such as professional
skills development, cre-
ative training techniques,
Ombudsman training, Navy
child and youth programs,
social networking and the
federal hiring process.
"Everything has been
running smoothly. We've
had some great speakers
and the master chief panel
went really well. It was
good for our folks to hear

munity needs from us,"
added DeGraw.
Work and Family
Life Supervisor Cinzia
Spampinato of the NAS


Sigonella, Italy was one of
the many attendees from an
overseas base. "I'm here to
get some fresh ideas. There
has been a lot of interac-
tion, social networking,


sharing ideas and thoughts,
and connecting with one
other. I have a lot to take
back to Italy," she said.
The conference hosted a
wide variety of speakers


discussing different aspects
of WFL. The last and most
anticipated speaker was
sports commentator and
journalist Roy Firestone.
"When I was asked to do
this event, I did not want
to charge the military so
to make up for it, I did a
free comedy show at The
Zone for the Sailors on
base. I wanted to design
a special show relating to
all the great athletes from
the Navy. Everyone from
Yogi Berra, Ted Williams,
Roger Staubach, Napoleon
McCallum, David Robinson,
and on and on. My father


was a Navy man, and to be
part of this great service,
even in a small way, meant
a great deal to me," stated
Firestone.
"The conference was
really informative and
helped enhance the pro-
fessional development of
all those who attended.
We had people here from
all over the world attend-
ing which provided a great
opportunity for networking.
I really enjoyed attending
the event," said Educator
Training Coordinator
Wilhemina Nash of the
NAS Jax FFSC.


VR-58 delivers new wave of support to hospital ship

By MC2 Alan Gragg
U.S. 4th Fleet Public Affairs [


T he VR-58 "Sun-
seekers" of NAS
Jacksonville flew
more than 70 U.S. Navy
reservists, U.S. Public
Health Service (USPHS)
professionals, representa-
tives of non-governmen-
tal organizations (NGOs)
and medical students to
Panama City, Fla. for a
crew swap on board hos-
pital ship USNS Comfort
(T-AH 20) May 31.
"It's tremendously
rewarding, transporting
folks like that," said one
of the a C-40A Clipper
aircraft's pilots, Cmdr. Bo
Moore. "They're doing a
great service to their coun-
try working on Comfort,
and it's great to be a part of
that mission. A lot of times,
we get to bring people back
from long separations from
their families, and that's
another thing that's just
awesome to be a part of.
We do everything we can to
get them home quickly and
safely."
The Military Sealift
Command ship Comfort
is currently on its fourth
scheduled port visit during
Continuing Promise 2009,
a four-month humanitarian
and civic assistance mission
to Latin America.
All eight of the crew rota-
tion flights scheduled dur-
ing Continuing Promise
2009 were scheduled by the
Naval Air Logistics Office.
During this crew swap, the
Navy reservists, and mem-
bers of USPHS, NGOs, and
medical students replaced
another group of more than
60 personnel who had been
working on board Comfort
for the past month.

The crew had just flown more than 70 new crew members to
USNS Comfort.

C-40A Clipper aircraft May 31. The VR 58 Sunseekers flew more than 70 U.S. Navy reservists,
USPHS professionals, representatives of several NGOs and college medical student passengers
to Panama City, where they replaced another group who were working on board the hospital
ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20). Comfort is deployed for Continuing Promise 2009, a four-
month humanitarian and civic assistance mission in Latin America.


"They did an amazing job
in some extremely under-
privileged countries," said
Comfort's Operational
Support Officer HMC(FMF)
Pamela Branum. "Enough
can't be said about their
professionalism. We had
people from all kinds of
career fields coming togeth-


er for one mission."
The vast majority of the
service members were
reservists from all over
the country. They con-
ducted medical operations
in Antigua, Barbuda, and
Colon, Panama. They also
enjoyed a liberty call at
Cartagena, Colombia.

Dinner commemorates Battle of Midway

By MC2 Daniel Gay
Navy Public Affairs Support Element East Det Southeast


Jacksonville's 12th commemoration
of the United States victory at The
Battle of Midway was held in down-
town Jacksonville June 6. More than 15
veterans of the historic battle were in
attendance.
The event is an annual tradition in
Jacksonville. This year's guest speaker
was Gen. James Mattis, who serves as
NATO's Supreme Allied Commander
Transformation and commander, U.S.
Joint Forces Command.
"The greatest generation is the World
War II (WWII) generation and that set the
standard by which we measure ourselves
today," said Mattis.
He also said that the values our new and
young service members learn by remem-
bering battles such as Midway are indis-
pensable.
"It's great to be here. When I first enlist-
ed, I never thought about things like this,"
said Marine Corps Sgt. David McFadden.
"After serving three tours in Iraq, I really
came to look at people like the Midway
survivors as heroes."
There were not only Midway survivors
in attendance, but also many other WWII
veterans.
"I think it's a wonderful idea to hold
this dinner every year," said retired USAF
Brig. Gen. Henry Newcomer, a WWII vet-
eran. "The people in the Pacific had some
of the toughest times during the war and I
am always thankful to them for what they

accomplished."
Jacksonville's Navy bases were repre-
sented at the event by NAS Jacksonville
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. and NS Mayport
Commanding Officer Capt. Aaron
Bowman.
"I'm here to honor the veterans of


Midway," said Scorby. "I am extremely
honored to be sitting with some of the
Midway veterans they are living legends
in our country."
Scorby also emphasized the importance
of sharing this great history with today's
service members. "I am so proud of our

heritage.

service members today, and for them to be
able to sit and talk with these heroes who
have come before them, is an opportunity
they won't forget."
Those attending the dinner also had the
chance to view tables full of memorabilia,
everything from miniature models of the
island of Midway to uniforms worn by the
Armed Forces of WWII.
The Jacksonville memorial dinner is
one of many Midway commemorations
held throughout the world to honor one of
America's greatest military victories.


Midway survivor recounts historic battle


By Marsha Childs
Naval Hospital Jax Public Affairs
very Sailor worth his
or her salt should
have an apprecia-
tion for our naval heritage
and how it has shaped our
identity.
Retired BMC James
Cunningham (87) knows
all too well the price of
freedom. He participated
in two major World War
II naval battles and sur-
vived the sinking of USS
Hammann (DD-412) at the
Battle of Midway in 1942.
Cunningham, a frequent
visitor at Naval Hospital
Jacksonville, recounted his
harrowing and heroic expe-
riences that earned him a
Purple Heart.
A native of West Virginia,
he enlisted in the Navy
at age 18 in April 1940.
"There was a depression
going on then and you were
lucky to get in the service
back in those days for $21 a
month," he recalled.
He reported to the
Hammann in October 1940.
"I was a big deal, a seaman.
I took care of the captain's
gig and had the helm when
he wanted to go somewhere.
Imagine that -an ol' hill-
billy in charge of the cap-
tain's gig," he chuckled.
The Hammann's home-
port was Pearl Harbor,
but the destroyer was in
the North Atlantic search-
ing for German subma-
rines when the Japanese
attacked Pearl Harbor on
Dec. 7, 1941. To strength-
en their defensive position,
Imperial Japanese forces
invaded strategic targets in
the South Pacific near the
Coral Sea.
"When the Hammann
got back to Pearl Harbor,
we tagged up with the
Yorktown again and took
off for the Coral Sea. We
spent over 100 days at sea
out there operating against
the Japanese," Cunningham
remembered.
The first major battle
of the Pacific War, the
Battle of the Coral Sea was
fought May 4-8, 1942, in
the waters between New
Guinea, Australia and the
Solomon Islands. Carrier
forces from both sides
exchanged air strikes for
two days.
"We sank one of the
Japanese carriers and
damaged one, but ended
up losing Lady Lex (USS
Lexington CV-2). Even
when the battle was over,
she was making 27 knots
yet they couldn't put the
fire out. By that evening
it was just blazing with

to abandon the ship. We
picked up about 300 survi-
vors off the Lexington and
returned to Pearl Harbor,"
he recalled.
The Yorktown was dam-
aged with repairs expected
to take a month, but the
Commander in Chief of the
Pacific Fleet, Adm. Chester
Nimitz needed the carrier
group back in the fight. "He
told the repair yard, 'You've
got three days' so in
three days the carriers were
ready and the Hammann Len Hackett
left Pearl Harbor with Former CAPT US ARMY
them," said Cunningham.
"After the Philippines
fell, Adm. Yamamoto
set his sights on the U.S.
base at Midway Island.
Fortunately, American
code breakers detected the
planned attack on Midway
and Nimitz used the infor-
mation to plan an ambush Ei
by his outnumbered car-
rier task forces," said lot10.3bed/2ba

During the great air bat-
tle of June 4, Hammann's
anti-aircraft batteries
helped screen the Yorktown,
but Japanese dive bombers
and torpedo planes severely
damaged the carrier.
"We had USS Enterprise lot189*3bed/2ba

"The next morning (June

Looking back to July 28, 1958...


File photo
After losing their starboard engine on anti-submarine patrol 180 miles off the coast of Mayport, Fla., the VP-45 crew
of this Martin P5M flying boat taxied the aircraft from the open sea and up the St. Johns River to NAS Jacksonville. The
Navy tug Umpqua escorted but did not tow the aircraft from NS Mayport. This mission, not surprisingly, took days
longer than planned.



There's no eating in baseball


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor

In our previous baseball league
in Florida, snacks seemed to be
a requirement an entitlement,
even after a game. Despite the fact
that most games were played dur-
ing prime dinner hours, when moth-
ers on the bleachers already had
crock pots with chicken in them on
the counter at home, as soon as the
last inning was finished, the players
promptly received a variety of snacks
and drinks, all supplied by one of the
mothers, of course.
This compulsion to feed children
after a game surely evolved from the
old tradition of providing sliced orang-
es and paper cups filled with water at
soccer games. Over the years, howev-
er, what was once a method of hydrat-
ing athletes has been distorted into
yet another opportunity for mothers
like me mothers who are doing the
best they can to have all their chil-
dren's uniforms clean and their equip-
ment loaded in the car before the
game to fail miserably. After-game
snacks are no longer about hydration;
they were about one-upping the sorry
mother who brought the kids raisins
the week before.
In the league in Florida, signing up
for snack duty was a mother's first
responsibility after filling out order
forms for uniforms and her own "I'm
[child's name here's Mother" T-shirt.
(Heaven help you if you don't wear
one of those shirts to a game, espe-
cially if you are the same mother who
brought raisins.) I spent so much time
signing up for duty and filling out
order forms that I nearly missed all
the major plays in Ford's first game.
I thought I was there to watch base-
ball. Apparently I was there to prove
what kind of mother I am, which in
fact turns out to be the kind of mother
who can't leave the field without los-
ing her own son's thermos.
Other mothers, mothers with the

"I'm [child's name here's
Mother" T-shirt, brought
an incredible array of
after-game snacks, each
one outdoing the last,
until one parent actu-
ally brought fresh waf-
fle cones and ice cream
on dry ice. Oh sure, my
boys thought things like
cupcakes and ice cream
after a game were very
cool. But even they grew Sarah
suspicious when one
mother brought goodie bags filled
with treats and cheap toys for each of
the players. Was this a birthday party
or a baseball game?
Instead of collecting my boys at the
dugout and talking to them about the
catch they made at second base, I was
searching for them in a mob of kids
begging for treats, and then settling
fights about who got more and open-
ing plastic straws for drinks in pouch-
es. All of these things the drinks
and the treats would be spilled on
the car floor before we got home. And
no one would be hungry for the dinner
in the crock pot.
When we moved to Maine, Dustin vol-
unteered to coach the boys' Little League
team. At the first team meeting, I gath-
ered the other mothers and asked, "Do
you guys do after-game snacks here?"
"After-game snacks? What do you
mean?"
"Well, in Florida moms sign up to
bring snacks for the kids after each
game.
The mothers looked confused. They
didn't have a clue what I was talking
about. Ah, at last, I thought, there
was still a part of the country where
people played baseball without worry-
ing about snacks.
And then a curious thing happened
at our first game. Before the second


Hey, MoneyChic!
I've had several shipmates tell me
that I need to change my state of
residence so I won't have to pay any
state taxes. Is it really worth making
the change? Will this affect my home
of record with the Navy? What do
you think about this subject matter?
MoneyChic says:
One of the perks for military mem-
bers is the leeway you have when it
comes to choosing the state where
you pay income taxes. This does not
change your home of record with the
Navy. Becoming a resident of a state
where you are stationed involves get-
ting your car registered in that state
and obtaining your driver's license
there. This would also become the
state where you would vote. You
can't pick just any state it has to be
a state where you are stationed and
living. There are seven states that
currently don't have state income
tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South


inning, our middle son,
Owen, asked me to get
him chips and dip and a
soda from the concession
stand.
"Stay in the game,
Owen," I told him. "This
isn't eating time. It's
baseball time."
"But, Mom, everyone
else is eating," he said.
__That's when I looked
miley up and for the first time
realized that our team
was having what amounted to a pic-
nic on the bench. When they went
out onto the field, one boy took a ham
sandwich with him. Several innings
later, I held dripping popsicles while
the kids were up at bat.
Forget about after-game snacks;
this team wouldn't have any snacks
left by the sixth inning.
Coach Dustin, my military-trained
husband who loves baseball more
than almost anything, was sincere-
ly confused by the baseball-game-
turned-picnic-dinner. As more kids
came out onto the field with handfuls
of food, Dustin grew more flustered.
In a moment of frustration, he yelled
to me on the stands, "Sarah, could
you get out here and coach Third
Base, please? And how about First
Base? Could you coach that one, too?"
(By the look on his face, I knew what
Dustin was really saying was, "Come
on, there's no eating in baseball!")
Didn't Dustin realize that I was
already busy opening pouch drinks,
picking up empty chip bags, and mak-
ing runs to the concession stand?
There was no time to coach bases. I
mean, those pizza slices weren't going
to cut themselves down the middle,
now were they?
But at least we don't have after-
game snacks.

... .let's say you have $60 per month
(the amount varies per state, check
your LES to see what you current
home state is charging you) taken
out to pay your state taxes. Sixty dol-
lars over 12 months is $720 a year.
If you decided to make a career out
of the Navy for 20 years, that num-
ber grows to $14,400 over a career of

invested the money to earn interest.)
One item to note, military spous-
es are usually considered to be resi-
dents of the state where they are cur-
rently living if they are employed in
that state and must pay state taxes
there. Also, keep in mind that once a
service member leaves the military,
they need to file taxes where they are
actually living permanently.

By Staff I


President Woodrow Wilson pro-
claimed June 14th Flag Day in
1916, commemorating the adoption
of the stars and stripes by the Second
Continental Congress on that day in 1777.
The idea of setting aside a special day
to celebrate the United States flag wasn't
new though. One of the earliest observanc-
es of Flag Day occurred in Hartford, Ct. in
1861, at the suggestion of George Morris to
pray for the preservation of the Union at
the beginning of the Civil War.
In 1885, a Wisconsin schoolteach-
er names Bernard Cigrand held a for-
mal observance of what he called "Flag
Birthday" at his school. Cigrand went on to
become a passionate promoter of Flag Day,
delivering more than 2,000 speeches on the
subject and is generally considered to be


the "Father of Flag Day."
In 1914, Secretary of the
Franklin Lane delivered a Flag D
in which he said the flag had s
him that morning, "I am what y
me; nothing more. I swing before
as a bright gleam of color, a s
yourself."

The parable of

T here once was a certain man who
tended his own gardens with loving
attention and incredible skill. One
day, he had just begun to prune one of his
fruit trees when he heard a
sobbing voice plead with him.

stronger in my roots, how will I know if I
am actually progressing? Nobody can see
my roots. Even I can't see them."
"Remember that I measure growth dif-

I am after is not always visible but you

more beautiful and sweeter than you ever
thought possible. It will still hurt when
I prune you. But when you feel the pain,
remember it is proof that I am keeping my
end of the bargain and helping you become
what you were meant to be."
May we always trust the gardener to
help us grow to our full potential, even if it
sometimes causes pain.

from a 12-month IA


By Lt. j.g. Glenn Greenleaf
VP-30 Public Affairs Officer

Members of VP-30
welcomed home
YN2(AW/SW)
Charles Hilliard May 12
after a successful 12-month
individual augmentation
(IA) tour in Iraq.
Prior to his "boots on
the ground" duty in Iraq,
Hilliard's journey began
at Fort Dix, N.J. where he
underwent eight weeks of
basic Army combat skills
and detainee contact-of-
interest operations train-
ing that included weapon
qualifications, convoy and
urban operations and cul-
tural awareness.
Following the stateside
training, he flew to Kuwait
to conduct live-fire tacti-
cal training before his final


transit to Camp Bucca in
Iraq.
Camp Bucca is a deten-
tion center operated by the
U. S. military in the vicin-
ity of Umm Qasr, Iraq.
During his IA deploy-
ment, Hilliard experienced
blinding sandstorms, heat
indices greater than 1350F
and frequent power out-
ages.
Hilliard was assigned to a
company whose duty was to
supervise up to 500 detain-
ees in various levels of
security. His duties includ-
ed patrolling the grounds,
maintaining watch over



S IFi~M-em


detainees, and teaching
detainees to read and write.
According to Hilliard, he
was glad to have the expe-
rience, but is very happy to
be home.

detachment in the Bahamas. The "Dusty
Dogs" are currently taking part in COMTUEX
(Combined Training Unit Exercises) with USS
Harry S. Truman Strike Group.


So far, 2009 has been a year of
accomplishments for the "Dusty
Dogs" of HS-7 as they approach a
rigorous work-up cycle as part of Carrier
Air Wing Three (CVW-3) on board USS
Harry S. Truman (CVN-75).
"As we approach COMTUEX (Combined
Training Unit Exercises) with the Truman
Strike Group, our squadron is well-prepped
for any mission," said HS-7 Commanding
Officer Cmdr. Sean Mordhorst. "Dusty
Dog aircrews and maintainers have safely
and professionally met every challenge as
we prepare for our deployment this fall."
It all began back in January when HS-7
began its grueling Helicopter Advanced
Readiness Program (HARP) training.


ing program that challenged the squadron
in each of its primary mission areas: naval
special warfare (NSW); combat search
and rescue (CSAR); anti-surface warfare
(ASUW); and anti-submarine warfare
(ASW).
HSCWSL used classroom instruction,
simulators and aircraft events to train
and challenge the Dusty Dogs. The NAS
Jacksonville-based Officer in Charge, Lt.
Cmdr. Michael Sypniewski, and his team
of Seahawk weapons and tactics instruc-
tors provided external assets from several
Joint services to create realistic and chal-
lenging training for HS-7.
The Dusty Dogs flew exercises at the
live-fire weapons ranges of Moody Air
Force Base (near Valdosta, Ga.). They also


the 20th Air Support Operations Squadron
(ASOS) and the Warthog Warriors of
the 74th Fighter Squadron. The training
over land at Moody AFB included com-
bat air support and medevac events that
improved the squadron's ASUW readiness.
The 20th ASOS provided call-for-fire
to HS-7 Seahawks that employed crew-
served weapons, as well as simulated
AGM-114 Hellfire missiles against ground
targets. The Dusty Dogs qualified multiple
aircrews as they expended 5,000 rounds
of 7.62mm and 3,386 rounds of .50 caliber
ammunition.

SECNAV safety award

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO

NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer Capt.
Jack Scorby Jr. and members of the base
safety office were presented the Secretary
of the Navy (SECNAV) Award for Achievement in
Safety Ashore in the large non-industrial category
by Commander, Navy Region Southeast Rear Adm.
Townsend Alexander June 3.
This award is presented annually to recognize Navy
and Marine Corps shore activities and ashore fleet
operational support units for their quality occupation-
al safety and health programs.
In an April 28 letter signed by Deputy Assistant
Secretary of the Navy (Safety) Tom Rollow, he stat-
ed, "You can take great pride in your command's
superior Occupational Safety and Health Program
recognized by this award. The effectiveness of your
safety program is proven by your outstanding safety
record resulting from your committed leadership,
employee engagement and innovation in operational
risk management. Your command is recognized for
its consistent safety excellence, and has one of the
Department of the Navy's premier programs. Your
continuing pursuit of safety excellence has resulted
in a long-term trend of civilian and military mishap
reduction, innovative safety improvement programs
and plans, and proactive safety activities. It is no sur-
prise that your command was the first to conduct the
Military Sportbike Rider Course that is now manda-
tory Navy-and Marine Corps-wide. Of note, is your
novel approach to increasing employee safety engage-
ment by awarding Morale, Welfare and Recreation
Services 'Safety Bucks' to those who contribute to a
safer installation. Congratulations to you and all your
personnel who have truly made 'mission first, safety
always all day, every day' an intrinsic part of your
command's culture. I wish you continued success with
your Occupational Safety and Health Program."
In addition to winning this award, the station
recently won the 2008 Chief of Naval Operations
Occupational Health Ashore Safety Award in the large
installation category proving that NAS Jacksonville is
truly dedicated to safety.

TOUR DE CURE:

'A way to celebrate

life and health'

From Page 6

Credit Union. Team Navy Jax riders
proudly display the names of both
sponsors on our jerseys and shorts
and honor their commitment to find-
ing a cure in each mile that we pedal."
Team Navy Jax has spent numerous
hours preparing for the ride by partic-
ipating in spinning classes at the NAS
Jax Morale Welfare and Recreation
Department's Fitness Source and get-
ting together to ride in local events.
The ride began May 30 in St. Johns
County where cyclists headed down
back roads through residential areas
and farmlands, enjoying beautiful,
coastal scenery along the way to St.
Augustine.
At the conclusion of day one,
cyclists, volunteers, families and
friends enjoyed food, live entertain-
ment and much more during the
Tour's Taste of St. Augustine under
the Ocean Pier Pavilion.
"The Tour de Cure is a way to cel-
ebrate life and health, and directly
contribute to improving the life and
health of our brothers & sisters who
cope with diabetes," said Lt. Scott
Myers of NAS Jax Air Operations.
"My son, Josef, and I feel that by
being on Team Navy Jax, we are a
part of something special and we are
pedaling for a cause. Raising money
for diabetes is a way for us to sup-
port our family and friends in their
fight against Diabetes," added SKI
Andrew Redmond of Aviation Support
Detachment Jax.
"I got interested in participating in
long distance bike rides and I'm doing
this because it's helping other people.
I also get to spend some quality time
with my dad," said 17-year-old Josef
Redmond.
After completing the first leg of the
ride, the team spent the night in St.
Augustine and got up the next morn-
ing to pedal north over a new route
back to Jacksonville where finish-line
festivities, lunch and entertainment
awaited their arrival.
"Wow we pedaled 136 miles
to raise money to find a cure for
diabetes. It was a great ride that
Kimberly Lewis, the ADA director,
and her staff put together for over
500 riders.," said retired Navy Capt.


Kent Lofton of About Bicycles helps Team Navy Jax member Joanne Mason of
NAVFAC SE Det Mayport adjust her brakes at one of the rest stops.


Norma Lee Hackney.
"The Taste of St. Augustine by the
St. Augustine Independent Restaurant
Association did a superb job providing
the meals for the event. Most impor-
tantly, we are very thankful to family
and friends who generously donated
money to the cause. It is amazing how
many people I know have diabetes,
which includes three members of Team
Navy Jax. New statistics show that one
out of three children born after 2000
will be affected with diabetes. ADA has
my attention, we have to work together
to beat this disease."
Diabetes is a disease that affects
20.8 million children and adults in
the United States, or seven percent
of the population. While an estimat-
ed 14.6 million have been diagnosed
with diabetes, unfortunately, 6.2 mil-
lion people (or nearly one-third) are
unaware that they have the disease.
The Tour de Cure is a series of
cycling events held in more than 80
cities nationwide to benefit the ADA.
The tour is a ride, not a race, with
routes designed for everyone from the
occasional rider to the experienced
cyclist.


"Team Navy Jax in its fourth year
with Tour de Cure just continues to
exceed its fundraising goals year after
year and we are just so proud of their
service to our country and are thrilled
for their support to the American
Diabetes Association," said Kimberly
Lewis, ADA director.
Team Navy Jax members include:
Lisa Berger, Jose Caloca, Jerry
Dryden, Miriam Gallet, Lee Hackney,
Patrick Hall, Jeff and Jodi Hohlstein,
Tony Irving, Ernie Mattison, Joanne
Mason, John McLarnan, Scott Myers,
Tony Ortiz, Rudy Quiva, Andrew
Redmond, Joe Redmond, Dave

Riders range from 17 to 81 years old.

SEABEES: 'Green points' for

energy efficiency to be included

From Page 1

provide most of the skilled labor required for the sub-
grade utilities, foundation, concrete block walls, steel
erection and electrical systems with certain phases, such
as HVAC, contracted out. This project is great because it
enables Seabees to hone their construction skill sets, as
well as cross-train with other rates."
Ensign Russ McCaskill of NAS Jax Public Works
Department is the project manager. "The budget is about
$810,000 and the build time is estimated at 15 months,
weather permitting. Wherever possible, we're incorporat-
ing 'green points' for energy efficiency, water reclamation,
and even how we site the building. When this project is
complete, the original admin office will be demolished and
returned to green space," added McCaskill.
Crew Leader BU2 Sean Kidwell is in charge of running
the project day to day. "It's my job to make sure every day
runs according to plan and jobs are accomplished. That
means materials are properly staged and any special tools
or equipment are ready to go. Of course, constructing this
project with quality and safety is always top of mind," said
Kidwell.
Kidwell leads a crew of 10 Seabees from construction
specialties such as, builders, electricians, steelworkers,
equipment operators and utilitiesmen. "While each Seabee
has a primary rate, we're also jacks of all trades who pitch
in wherever we're needed to get the job done," he con-
cluded.
Lt. Reginald Cozart, officer in charge of CBMU 202
Detachment Jacksonville, thanked Scorby for his support.
"I know our skipper is a champion of replacing obsolete,
World War II-era buildings at NAS Jacksonville. This
construction project will bring our Seabees compound into
the 21st century. The building's first floor will house our
command element and the top floor will house our confer-
ence and classroom space, plus, men's and women's locker
rooms. When our new administration facility is complete
- two cramped and inefficient buildings will go down."

Minor league litigation


Getting the most


out of your small


claims court case

By Lt. j.g. Matt Roush, JAGC
Special Contributor

Sometimes you have no choice. You've tried to be
reasonable, you've tried to work the situation
out and get what you're owed. But for whatever
reason, the other side, be it a mechanic, a neighbor,
or some other party that damaged you, just won't
cooperate. So you're left with no choice but to take
that person to court.
While small claims court may not neces-
sarily be an ideal use of your time, it
is often the best way to get what
you are owed. Going
before a judge and
making your case
may be the only
way to get that
opposing party to
pay up. When you
reach the point that filing suit is your best option,
there are some things to keep in mind as you get ready
for your case.
The most important aspect of a small claims court
case is evidence. So, your biggest task in prepara-
tion is compiling everything you have to back up
your case-photos, receipts, documents, anything that
spells out what you're owed and who owes it to you. It
is also often very helpful to have in-person testimony.
If you have access to someone who witnessed the event
or can testify expertly as to any damage incurred,
it can be very persuasive. In the event those people
aren't available for in-person testimony, you can sub-
mit letters from them to the court.
When you actually get to court, the key words to
remember are speed and clarity. Understand that
these judges are very busy. They do not want to hear
sob stories about why you need the amount you're
asking for. Instead, quickly get to the point. Describe
generally the event that led to your claim. Then imme-
diately state the amount you are seeking, and proceed
to walk the judge through the exact details that led to
your loss.
The beauty of the small claims court system is its
simplicity. You don't need to be represented by an
attorney in these cases, provided that you take the
time to do the necessary preparation in advance of
your case. Collect your evidence, organize your case
into a clear series of causes and effects, and be clear
and concise with the judge, and you stand a good
chance to get back whatever was taken from you.

Men: Get your health checked


From Naval Branch Health Clinic Mayport


Men's Health Month aims to heighten the aware-
ness of preventable health problems and encour-
age early detection and treatment of disease
among men and boys. This month gives health care pro-
viders, public policy makers, the media, and individuals
an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regu-
lar medical advice and preventive medicine.
This year, an estimated 675,300 American males will
be diagnosed with cancer. The three male-only can-
cers are prostate, testicular and penile. .
These have high survival rates even \
though the long- and short-term side
effects of treatment can have signifi-
cant effects on quality of life.
Men also have a higher incidence
than women of other cancers such as
lung, liver, bladder and kidney cancer.
Because early detection is key to long-
term survival with most cancers, regular
screening in at-risk populations and vigi-
lance to changes in one's own body are impor-
tant.
For American men over the age of 55, the three
most deadly cancers are lung cancer, prostate can-
cer, and colon cancer.
Nine out of 10 men who die from lung cancer were
smokers at one point in their lives. Routine chest X-rays
cannot warn people in time as the damage to the tissues
has already been done. The best advice for smokers is that
it's never too late to quit smoking or avoid second-hand
smoke. The earlier you quit, the lower the risk of develop-
ing lung cancer.
For prostate cancer, three out of four symptoms are


found in men over 65 and the risk is twice as high for
African Americans as it is for whites. A high-fat diet also
increases the risk of developing prostate cancer. Talk to
your doctor about what type of prostate cancer testing best
suits you. Testing recommendations can vary depending
upon your current health and family health history and
may include a digital rectal exam (DRE) and Prostate
Specific Antigen (PSA) blood testing.
At the age of 45, African American
men and men with a first-degree relative
S(father, brother and/or son) diagnosed with
prostate cancer before age 65 should dis-
cuss DRE and PSA screening with their
doctor. At the age of 50, all men should
have an annual DRE and PSA blood
testing with their doctor.
SColorectal cancer is responsible
for nearly 73,000 cases of cancer of the
colon or rectum diagnosed in American
men this year. Most men should start
some sort of screening regimen at age
50. Men at higher risk of colorectal cancer
should start screening at age 40. Risk
factors include a personal or family his-
tory of cancer or lumps (polyps) of the colon
or rectum. A high-fat diet, smoking and obesity may add
to the risk as well. A key to successfully treating such a
cancer is early diagnosis. It is crucial to see a physician
when a person displays the following symptoms:
Bleeding from the rectum
See blood in the stool
Notice a change in the bowel habits
For additional information, contact your healthcare pro-
vider with any concerns about your preventive health care
needs.
