A after their six-month deploy-
ment to Kadena Air Force Base
.in Okinawa, Japan and to a for-
ward operating locationt Comalapa Air
Base, El Salvador, the "Mad Foxes" of
VP-5 began their transition home June
1. VP-5's split-site deployment supported
Pacific Command (PACOM) operations
in the Western Pacific while simultane-
ously supporting Southern Command
operations in the Caribbean and South
America.
While deployed, the squadron conduct-
ed joint and combined military exercises,
sent their combat aircrews to multiple
PACOM detachment sites and contrib-
uted to the local communities that hosted
them.
The Mad Foxes Maintenance
Department proved flexible by conducting
an organizational restructuring during
the early part of this intensive deploy-
ment. With more than 1,030 mishap-
free flights consisting of more than 4,150
hours, the squadron demonstrated their
ability to accomplish the diverse warfare
missions of the P-3 Orion worldwide.
Mad Foxes in 7th Fleet
VP-5 hit the deck running at Kadena
AFB by immediately demonstrating the
expeditionary nature of the P-3C Orion by
sending a combat aircrew to participate in
Cobra Gold, a coordinated exercise with
the Thailand Air Force and USS Essex
(LHD-2).
The Mad Foxes also supported the USS
'John C. Stennis (CVN-74) barrier Strike
Group on several occasions. During an
undersea warfare exercise, the squadron

was joined by P-3C Orions from VP-47,
VP-40, VP-8 and VP-9 to fly multiple sor-
ties where they operated in concert with
U.S. Navy assets and Japanese Maritime
Self Defense Force (JMSDF) ships and
aircraft.
Several detachments were conduct-
ed to the U.S. territory of Guam.. One
participated in improved extended echo
ranging exercises along with search and
rescue (SAR) efforts with the U.S.' Coast
Guard. Another assisted the Palauan
Coast Guard and Australian Navy in
combating illegal fishing in the vast area
between Palau and the Federated States
of Micronesia.
Two separate detachments were sent to
the Philippines for training exercises and
missions supporting the global war on ter-
rorism, as well as SAR assignments..
Another detachment visited Pohang,
South Korea for Foal Eagle 2009,
an annual combined exercise with the
Republic of South Korea Navy that rein-
forces U.S. and South Korean readi-
ness to discourage conflict on the Korea
Peninsula.

Yorktown Ave. traffic cones goi


Photo by AWVAN Scott Beach
The placement of traffic cones during the morning and after-
noon rush hours by NAS Jax Security personnel can be a dan-
gerous undertaking.


A message from Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
NAS Jax Commanding Officer
S hipmates:
On Monday, June 29, the traf-
fic cones will Ao longer be placed
on Yorktown Avenue. Placement of
cones on Yorktown was begun several
years ago to help remind drivers of
the lane configuration. Although they
initially reduced afternoon accidents,
they have also caused confusion as to
what to follow: the lane control lights
or the traffic cones. In some cases,
this has now resulted in accidents
and near misses.
It is imperative to note that THE
PLACEMENT OF TRAFFIC CONES
BY SECURITY ALWAYS TAKES
PRECEDENCE OVER LANE
CONTROL LIGHTS, PER FLORIDA
DRIVING LAW.
Additionally, the placement of
the cones by security personnel on
Yorktown, is in and of itself, a dan-
gerous undertaking. A recent mishap


where a car hit the security vehicle
while the cones were being placed,
highlighted this issue.
The traffic lanes are reconfigured
each day to accommodate our peak
traffic periods. The normal traffic
pattern is two lanes in and two lanes
out.
However, in the morning, the pat-
tern is three lanes in beginning at
0345 and ending at 0815.
In the afternoon, the pattern revers-
es to three lanes out beginning at
1345 and ending at 1700.
The normal traffic pattern of two
lanes in and two lanes out takes place
at all other times including weekends
and holidays. A lane transition peri-
od allows for a smooth changing of
the lane lights.
When changing from the two in
and two out pattern, the lane to be
cleared always changes from a green
arrow to either a yellow arrow, or
the entire light may turn yellow
and show a "spot" depending upon


ng away

the model of the lane light. THIS IS
YOUR FIRST WARNING that a lane
is changing and this pattern lasts
approximately four minutes. After
that, the yellow arrow/spot changes
to a red X and THIS IS YOUR FINAL
WARNING. Thus, there will now be
a red X on both sides for that one lane
changing patterns for another four
minutes.
After this, the lane light for the
direction of travel now allowing cars
will change from a red X to a green
arrow for that lane direction. These
times are necessary so in case you
catch a red light, and the traffic pat-
tern changes, you still have time to
move over once the traffic light chang-
es.
That said, DO NOT WAIT FOR THE
LIGHT TO TURN RED BEFORE
YOU CHANGE LANES. The yel-
low light should alert you that it is
now time to move over to a lane with

Standing by no snacks at baseball ,,


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor

You can put away the Mother of the
Year award. I haven't won it again.
Last week's column, in which I
expressed my frustration over snacks
at children's athletic events, won me
few friends. Believing that children
will not perish from hunger during a
two-hour baseball game puts you in
an odd sort of minority.
When kids are playing outside at
home, mothers have to call them in
and remind them to stop and have
a snack. Out on the baseball field,
however, they can't go more than 30
minutes without a bag of chips. Why?
Because we as a society have trained
our children to think this way, just as
we have conditioned them to expect
goody bags at birthday parties and
prizes after a visit to the doctor or
dentist. There is a material reward
for everything.
Many readers think I'm a fun-vac-
uum. However, if it's kids' best inter-
ests we are talking about, then the
argument over treats after a game
is a legitimate and important one.
Participating in a sport is a healthy
activity. Why niust it be rewarded
with brownies? We already know that
childhood obesity and diabetes are
national problems. Being "good par-
ents" in this context means teaching
your children healthy eating habits.
Conflict ensues when on the baseball
field being a "good parent" is para-
doxically defined as making sure that
no one feels discomfort, whether it be
hunger pain, the "pain" of sitting. on
the bench and waiting your turn, or
not being picked to play first base.. The
children naturally want to feel good
and have a reward. We as parents
have unfortunately catered to them.
Predictably, readers also expressed.

S


played during din-
nertime and lasting
two hours. This is an
understandable con-
cern. Except plenty of
parents manage to feed .|H
their children a healthy
snack before the game
and then give them din-
ner afterwards. Yes,
that requires extra
work, but we are moth-
ers, the same people Sarah
who can buckle car seats one-handed.
We have never been short on creative
ways to make things manageable.
A frustration expressed by parents
who agreed with my column is the
fact that dinner on the bench is a dis-
traction for the whole team. Taking
food onto the field is a safety concern,
but eating on the sidelines causes
undue commotion when the players'
attention should be on the game. It's
respectful to watch your teammates
when they are up at bat, but seeing
the game from the bench also pro-
vides more opportunities to learn the
rules and strategies.
Of course, the game is not the only
thing to be learned. Inside a team
sport there are other life lessons,
many of which involve uncomfort-
able things such as failure and disap-
pointment. My fear is that we have
become too opposed to letting our
children experience these challenging
situations. We want everything to be
fair. There are no winners or losers.
No one is better than anyone else.
Everyone gets a treat.
In Florida, Ford played the outfield
for the entire first season. He sim-
ply wasn't good enough to play any-
where else. But he worked hard, paid


attention and practiced.
Getting what he wanted
- became a motivator.
. The next year he
earned himself a spot
at second base. And
when he made his first
triple play, he was
rightly deemed MVP of
that game, even though
doing so could have
ile potentially hurt other
mile players' feelings.
At the end of the second season,
much to Ford's disappointment,
he wasn't picked for the All Stars.
Someone else had earned that reward.
I resisted the urge to make Ford's
pain go away. Back then I wrote,
"Sometimes, being a mother means
letting you experience things that will
break my heart even as they build
your character."
The best advice I ever received
about kids' sports was that moms
meddling in the dugout interfere with
one of the important rites-of-passage
for boys - the joy, the pain and the
triumph of baseball.
For decades, the baseball diamond
was a place where boys grow up. They
learn to deal with disappointment,
bumps and bruises, dirt in their eyes,
and, yes,. even some teasing from
their peers. They become a team play-
er. They learn not to complain. They
realize that meeting a challenge is
the best reward of all.
I don't think we are, asking too
much of our children when we expect
these things, or when we expose them
to situations that may not have a
reward and might not be "fair." In
fact, I believe we are cheating them if
we do not.

FROM THE HOMEFRONT


HEY, MONEYCHICI

Hey, MoneyChic!
I've been in the Navy for about ten years. With this
much time invested, I've definitely made the decision
to "stay in."
Now that I've got a family to provide for, I watch
every penny. One added burden to our family budget
is repaying my student loans I had from before joining
the Navy. It seems like I'll be paying on them forever.
Do you have any salvation for me?
MoneyChic says:
Actually I've got some
great salvation news
for you. Check out the
Public Service Loan
Forgiveness program.
This program offers
loan forgiveness after 10
.years of public service
employment. Serving in
the military qualifies as
public service!
To qualify for the loan
forgiveness, you must
make monthly loan pay-
ments for ten years (120
payments) while work-
ing full time in public service. Most students borrow
federal student loans from one of two major federal
student loan programs. To see if your loans are eli-
gible, check out www.nslds.ed.gov.
For more information about the Public Service Loan
Forgiveness program, visit www.equaljusticeworks.
org/resources/student-debt-relief.
This may just erase the remaining student loan
debt that you have and free up some room in your
family budget.
Not a bad perk for serving your country.

Australian Air Force. Operating out of Edinburgh,
Australia, both countries worked together in ASW train-
ing. In March, combat aircrews flew to the aide of USNS
Impeccable (T-AGOS-23), which was being harassed by
Chinese fishing boats in international waters. The air-
craft's presence aided in surveillance and de-escalation of
the situation.
While operating in Okinawa, the Mad Foxes worked
routinely with the JMSDF to maintain control of the sea
lanes around Japan. The JMSDF also operates the P-3
aircraft performing similar missions. The JMSDF and
VP-5 participated in cross-deck training, where crews
from each country flew in each other's aircraft to gain an
understanding of the differences and similarities of how
each force operates.
Lt. Chris Mergen, a VP-5 tactical coordinator, described
his experience with the Japanese as very positive. "The
JMSDF are a very professional and capable ally. The
training for future combined operations with JMSDF was
helpful for both navies in breaking down the -language
,barrier," he said.
VP-5 in 4th Fleet
The Mad Foxes in El Salvador consisted of four combat
aircrews and three aircraft conducting counter-narco-traf-
ficking missions in South America. Most operations were
coordinated with law enforcement ground forces and fast
patrol boats from Guatemala, Colombia and Honduras.
VP-5 crews performed joint and combined missions
with air assets from the U.S. Customs/Border Patrol, U.S.
Coast Guard, U.S. Air Force, Royal British Air Force, U.S.
Navy Airborne Early Warning assets, as well as SH-60B
helicopters deployed on U.S. Navy ships. VP-5 completed
140 missions leading to a seizure of more than nine narco-
trafficking assets - preventing 29 metric tons of illegal
drugs worth over $1 billion s from reaching the United
States.
Shortly before heading home, the Mad Foxes answered
the nation's call by immediately responding to the tragic
crash of Air France Flight 447 off the coast of Brazil, more
than 14 hours away from El Salvador.
Maintenance transition
In late 2008, just prior to the squadron's deployment,
Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 11 directed
squadrons to'return to a legacy structure of one main-
tenance department per squadron. VP-5 Maintenance
Officer Lt. Cmdr. Ryan Smith led the transition and certi-
fication process during the squadron's deployment.
The maintenance department had a tremendous work-
load during the deployment to ensure the squadron air-
craft were available to meet their assigned missions.
They managed and performed scheduled and -unscheduled
maintenance on seven aircraft, which were comprised of
four distinct mission system configurations. Altogether,

ment sites.
Community relations
When not flying, the Mad Foxes worked closely with _.
their hosts in both El Salvador and Okinawa and were . .
true ambassadors representing their country with pride
and professionalism. In El Salvador, events were orga-
nized to allow locals a glimpse of P-3C operations.
In addition, volunteers from the squadron spent about
300 hours assisting in a community building project. In
Okinawa, squadron members cleaned a local park, helped
out at a childcare center, practiced English with an ele-
mentary class, and spent time at a retirement home clean-
ing and helping out with services.
Job well done '
On May 1 Cmdr. Matthew Pregmon was relieved by
Cmdr. Wes Naylor III as commanding officer of VP-5 in
a seamless leadership turnover that saw Cmdr. Jason
Jorgensen assume executive officer duties. Naylor praised
the squadron's performance in a multitude of missions
from two different areas of responsibility.
"Our Sailors performed beyond expectations. P-3s have
always been tasked with anything and everything. Our
team answered the call with true professionalism and
skill," said Naylor.
After an 18-hour airlift or a few days voyage in a P-3C,
the Mad Foxes of VP-5 arrived home last week to the
newly opened NAS Jacksonville Hangar 511.

Medal of Honor recipient administers oath


By HM1 Rebecca Gaddis
MSRON-10 Public Affairs
At his June 1 reen-
listment ceremo-
ny, HMC(SW/
EXW) David Hendricks of
Maritime Expeditionary
Security Squadron
(MSRON) 10 received the
oath of enlistment from a
former hospital corpsman
who wears the Medal of
Honor - America's highest
decoration for heroism.
Hendricks said, "I've
always been interested in
military history, as well as
the heritage of Navy hospital
corpsmen. When I learned
.that hospital corpsman
and Medal of Honor recipi,
ent Robert Ingram lived in
Jacksonville, I contacted him
to ask if he would adminis-
ter my oath of enlistment.
He graciously agreed."
He added, "It was an honor
and a privilege to meet this
real American hero who
valiantly answered the call,
'corpsman up!"'
Hendricks is under orders
to the guided missile cruis-
er USS Gettysburg (CG 64)
based at NS Mayport. ,
Hendricks urged those in
attendance to read Ingram's
award citation and thank
him for his service. In fact,
due to lost paperwork,
more than 30 years passed
until the Medal of Honor
was awarded to Ingram by
President Clinton at the


HMC(SW/EXW) David Hendricks stands with his wife, Karen, son, Cody,,and Medal
administered the oath of enlistment for three more years to Hendricks.


White House in Washington
D.C. on July 10, 1998. The
citation reads:
For conspicuous gallantry
and intrepidity at the risk
of his life above and beyond
the call of duty while serving
as corpsman with Company
C, FirstBattalion, Seventh


Marines against elements of
a North Vietnam Aggressor
(NVA) battalion in Quang
Ngai Province Republic of
Vietnam on,28 March 1966.
Petty Officer Third Class
Ingram accompanied the
point platoon as it aggres-
sively dispatched an outpost


of an NVA battalion. The
momentum of the attack
rolled off a ridgeline down a
tree-covered slope to a small
paddy and a village beyond.
Suddenly, the village
tree line exploded with an
intense hail of automatic
rifle fire from approximately

100 North Vietnamese regu-
lars.
In mere moments, the
platoon ranks were deci-
mated. Oblivious to the dan-
ger, Petty Officer Ingram
crawled across the bullet-
spattered terrain to reach a
downed Marine.


As he administered aid,
a bullet went through the
palm of his hand. Calls for
"corpsman!" echoed across
the ridge. Bleeding, he edged
across the fire-swept land-
scape, collecting ammunition
from the dead and adminis-
tering aid to the wounded.
Receiving two more
wounds before realizing the
third wound was life-threat-
ening, he looked for a way
off the face of the ridge, but
again he heard the call for
corpsman and again, he res-
olutely answered.
Though severely wound-
ed three times, he rendered
aid to those incapable until
he finally reached the right
flank of the platoon. While
dressing the head wound
of another corpsman, he
sustained his fourth bullet
wound.
From 1600 hours until
just prior to sunset, Petty
Officer Ingram pushed,
pulled, cajoled and doctored
his Marines.
Enduring the pain from
his many wounds and dis-
regarding the probability
of his demise, Petty Officer
Ingram's intrepid actions
saved many lives that day. :
By his indomitable fight-
ing spirit, daring initiative
and unfaltering dedications
to duty, Petty Officer Ingram
reflected great credit upon
himself and upheld the high-
est traditions of the United
States Naval Service.

Additionally, HS-7 took part in multiple
exercises to practice the anti-submarine
warfare (ASW) mission, successfully oper-
ating with other ships and aircraft in the
strike group to ensure the carrier strike
group' ability to maneuver at sea.
The Dusty Dogs also enjoyed the unique
privilege of working with the Norwegian
Navy during TSTA. The Norwegian frigate
HNoMS Roald Amundsen (F 311) crossed
the Atlantic to conduct operations with
Carrier Strike Group 10 and HS-7.

The flights to the ship fostered a strong
working relationship between the two
naval forces. The bond could be mea-
sured by the large number of patches and
gifts exchanged between HS-7 crews and
Armundser personnel.
HS-7 proved they are able to operate con-
sistently at a high level of excellence. This
would not have been possible without the
dedication of the squadron's maintainers
and admin crew.
Flight operations on a carrier are not
possible without fully mission capable heli-
copters, and the Dusty Dogs maintenance
department always made sure that mission
capable helicopters were ready and avail-
able to support Carrier Strike Group 10.

Second P-8A passes first

test flight with flying colors














Boeing photo by Ed Turner
Boeing P-8A Poseidon test aircraft "T2" took off from Renton Field, Wash., June 5 on its
first flight. T2 landed almost three hours later at Boeing Field in Seattle. The flight plan
for T2, painted in its new U.S. Navy livery, included a fly by of NAS Whidbey Island,
Wash. to give Navy personnel a close-up look at the Poseidon. The new multi-mission
aircraft reached a maximum altitude of 25,000 feet as pilots performed airborne sys-
tems checks such as engine accelerations and decelerations, autopilot flight modes and
auxiliary power unit shutdowns and starts. T2 is one of five test aircraft being assembled
and tested as part of the System Development and Demonstration contract that Boeing
received in 2004. The program's first test aircraft, T1, completed its first flight on April
25. The Navy is purchasing 117 P-8A Poseidons to replace its fleet of P-3C Orions.
Initial operational capability is planned for 2013.

Achievement Medal to (from left) ADCS(AW/SW) Jeffery Waters, AWO1 (AW/NAC) Tonya

VP-30 recognizes 'Sailors in the Arena'


By Lt. j.g. Glenn Greenleaf
VP-30 Public Affairs
Four exceptional leaders and men-
tors were awarded the Navy and
Marine Corps Achievement Medal
for leadership achievement May 22 by VP-
30 Commanding Officer Capt. Rich Fite.
In the tradition inspired by President
Theodore Roosevelt, Fite recognized:
* Lt. Gregory Jenkins, a pilot instructor
* ADCS(AW/SW) Jeffery Waters, LCPO
of maintenance control
* AD1(SW) Kenneth Neville, LPO of
maintenance administration
* AWO1(AW/NAC) Tonya McMilon, LPO
of information Systems Department
' "These remarkable 'Pro's Nest' sail-
ors earned this recognition through their
exceptional mentorship and deckplate lead-
ership," said Fite.
' "They,exemplify the power of example
and the power of principle that inspire
Sailors to excel every day. Their positive
attitude, solid work ethic, attention to


detail, and genuine concern for their fellow
man positively impact their work centers,
our 'command and our community as a
whole."
Fite also spoke the immortal words of
President Theodore Roosevelt:
"It is not the critic who counts; not the
man who points out how the strong man
stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could
have done them better. The credit belongs
to the man who is actually in the arena;
whose face is marred by dust and sweat
and blood; who strives valiantly; who
comes short again and again - because
there is no effort without error and short-
coming; but who does actually strive to do
the deeds; who knows great enthusiasm,
the great devotions; who spends himself in
a worthy cause; who at the best knows in
the end triumph of high achievement, and
who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails
while daring greatly - so that his place
shall never be with those cold and timid
souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

Hurricane Season is
here, and living in
a hurricane zone
means there is a good pos-
sibility of having to evacu-
ate.
Given this, there are four
Chief of Naval Operations
(CNO) mandated items
for all Navy person-
nel: (1) enrollment in the
Defense Travel System
(DTS) Web site; (2) obtain-
ing a Government Travel
Charge Card (GTCC);
(3) updating your Navy
Family Accountability
& Assessment System
(NFAAS) account; and (4)
and updating your Total
Workforce Management
System (TWMS) self-ser-
vice account.
Defense Travel System -
According to NAVADMIN
315/08, DTS is the
Department of Defense
(DoD) mandated electron-
ic order writing system
when Navy personnel go
on official Temporary Duty
Travel (TDY) or if there is
a need to evacuate due to a
natural disaster.
All military personnel
must be enrolled in DTS, or
they will not receive reim-
bursement after an evacu-
ation until enrollment is
completed and DTS orders
are written.
Military family members
will be issued separate
evacuation orders by their
sponsor's command using a
different system than DTS.
DTS travel advances


and claims will be pro-
cessed online, and all non-
DTS advances and travel
claims will be filed with
the Jacksonville Travel
Processing Center (TPC)
by completing a paper
travel voucher.
The main advantages of
DTS are quick advances for
those who are ineligible for
a GTCC, as well as quick
payment of travel claims
upon return of an evacu-
ation, most times within
two to three work days,
versus two to three weeks
with TPC.
See your command/
department DTS
Representative to enroll
today at www.defensetrav-
el.osd.mil. The DTS help
desk can also be reached at
1-800-378-5406.
Government Travel
Charge Card - According
to NAVADMIN. 316/08,
Navy personnel are man-
dated to have a GTCC dur-
ing official TDYs and evac-
uations to pay for essential
needs such as vehicle fuel,
food, lodging, tolls, rental
car (if needed), and even
cash advances.
However, the GTCC shall
not be used for non-essen-
tial items such as gifts and
entertainment.
All card transactions are
recorded, and any fraud-
ulent use is punishable
under the UCMJ. The pro-
cess to obtain a GTCC can
take one to three weeks,
so contact your command
GTCC Coordinator today.
Navy Family
Accountability &
Assessment System


- During the Navy-wide
hurricane exercise held
in May, several person-
nel did not have accurate
recall information listed in
NFAAS.
During Hurricane Ike in
September 2008 NFAAS
was used when NAS Key
West personnel and their
families were ordered to
evacuate to the Orlando
safe haven. Updating
NFAAS takes only a few
minutes and can be accom-
plished at https://navyfam-
ily.navy.mil. Log in using
the sponsor's SSN and date
of birth, then click on the
"My Info" tab.
All information contained
within is pulled from
the Defense Enrollment
Eligibility Reporting
,System (DEERS) database.
If your DEERS information
is inaccurate, contact PSD.
Total Workforce
Management System
- Finally, all military and
civilian personnel must
update their TWMS infor-
mation. Login to https://
twms.nmci.navy.mil/self-
service/. In the left-hand
column, click on "Personal/
Recall Informatiori."
One of the biggest con-
cerns during Hurricane
Ike, aside from accounting
for personnel and family
members, was having suf-
ficient personal funds, - so
be sure you and your fam-
ily are prepared now.
Remember, it's not a
question of "if' a hurricane
will affect your area, it's a
question of "when."

By MCC(SW) Maria Yager
The Navy announced plans
June 3 to increase the maxi-
mum number of award points
authorized when computing the final
multiple on Navy-wide advancement
exams for Sailors with in-theater
service as outlined in NAVADMIN
167/09.
"Since the earliest stages of
Operation Iraqi Freedom, the perfor-
mance and advancement results of
Sailors have been monitored to ensure
that in-theater service does not disad-
vantage Sailors. Where warranted
by the data, policy adjustments have
been implemented to counter in-the-
ater advancement challenges," said
Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson, chief of
naval personnel, in the message.
"This action is intended to prevent
the exclusion of in-theater award
points for those Sailors who currently
have the maximum award points for
their pay grade," said Ferguson.
The new policy takes effect in
August for Reserve advancement cycle


085 and September for the active-duty
advancement cycle 204.
Sailors who have served more
than 90 consecutive days in Iraq,
Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa,
Kuwait, Guantanamo Bay, Joint Task
Force 515, or Joint Force Special Task
Force-Philippines after Oct. 24, 2001
are authorized a two-point increase
to the maximum award points autho-
rized.
This increases the maximum num-
ber of award points to 12 for E-4 and
E-5 candidates and 14 points for E-6
candidates.
"There are a lot of [hospital] corps-
men who miss it by half a point.
So, any help is appreciated," said
HM2(FMF) Adrian Evans, assigned
to Navy Branch Health Clinic aboard
Naval Support Activity Mid-South.
Evans completed two deployments
to Iraq as a platoon corpsman for the
2nd Marine Division Fleet Marine
Force. With his prior awards and a
recent Navy Achievement Medal,
Evans is maxed out on award points
- but, the new policy will allow him to


get credit for his overseas contingen-
cy service on his next advancement
exam.
"When you compare the time and
environment a non-operational corps-
man gets to study versus an oper-
ational corpsman, anything extra
helps," said Evans.
In addition to extra award points
for exams, the Navy has offered
Sailors other advancement incentives
for serving in-theater.
According to NAVADMIN 276/08
all chief petty officer and limited duty
officer candidates who are eligible,
meet the requirements, and have the
commanding officer's approval, are
waived from the advancement exami-
nations while serving in-theater.
NAVADMIN 077/05 explains how,
Sailors can earn accelerated advance-.
ment through the Combat Meritorious
Advancement Program.
In order to qualify for the program,
Sailors must currently be in pay
grades El through E5. The program
is not authorized to promote Sailors
to E7 or above.

CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


Celebrating Father 's Day


JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, June 18, 2009 13

Preventing fires in


government housing

From the Naval Safety Center


By Chaplain (Lt.) Buster Williams
W hen I think of Father's Day,
I can't help but think about
all of those children with
military dads who are not able to be
at home with their families for these
special occasions. The strength of
our Navy (and indeed our nation)
is. fundamentally related to the
strength of our families.
Our culture has had a major trans-
formation over the past 50 years in
how we define the family. Sadly, and
far too often, the dad is not in the
picture and this has proven to be det-
rimental to the children who grow
up in single-parent homes with very
little, if any, real relationship with
their dad.
While I give great credit to the
mothers who have struggled to raise
their children in the absence of a
father, the challenge we have as Navy
dads is how to be the best fathers to
our children and buck the trend of
leaving too many mothers and chil-
dren to fend for themselves.
, I have a couple of suggestions for
all those men out there about being
a father. First, if you don't have any
children I would encourage you to
think long and hard about what those
responsibilities entail before you actu-
ally become a dad. The time to think
about what it means to be a dad is not
after the fact, but before. One of the
great privileges of being a man is to
become a father. But, like anything
else in life, the best fathers are going
to be those who work hard to prepare


Chaplain (Lt.) Buster Williams


themselves for the challenges ahead.
For younger shipmates out there,.
now is the time to begin preparing
yourself for the future. Do some self-
reflection and make those changes
you need to become the man you
would want to have as a father. It
might mean cutting back or giving up-
alcohol, video games, dangerous hob-
bies, running up credit cards, or any
number of things. But the key is for
you to start thinking about the future
and working to prepare now.
For those shipmates who are dads, I
have some counsel as well. If you are
married, the best thing you can do for
your kids is be the best husband you
can be. Show your wife that you love
her and respect her and your kids will
begin to feel the satisfaction and joy


of living in a loving home with both
parents.
A child-centered home can be a
dangerous thing. Your children want
to have the comfort and security of
knowing that their parents love each
other and are committed to one anoth-
er no matter what. This security will
help them overcome any number of
struggles in life. So, think about how
you can strengthen your marriage.
Consider signing up for a PREP
class at the chapel, or take advantage
of the Marriage Enrichment Retreats
that CREDO has to offer. These can
really help strengthen those bonds
that are so critical for our children. If
you are divorced with kids, or are a
single dad, you need to work overtime
to provide your children with that
loving support they need from their
dad. Get involved or stay involved
with their lives. This will pay huge
dividends in the future. Your chil-
dren need to know that you are there
for them, even if you don't live in
the same house. Go to those special
events at school, take a special vaca-
tion together, get involved in their
extra-curricular activities. In short,
make a determined effort to remind
them of your love for them.
Finally, I encourage you to reflect on,
the Fatherhood of God. After all, who
better to imitate in this area of father-
hood than the one who created fathers
in the first place? Happy Father's Day
shipmates and may God especially be
with those children whose fathers are
deployed this Father's Day.

Personnel who live in government quarters must
realize that fire safety and fire protection are
important responsibilities. In the first eight
months of fiscal year 2009, there were 135 fires in gov-
ernment quarters aboard naval installations, of which
79 resulted from unattended cooking or unsafe cooking
practices. Two of .these fires highlight the dangers and
emphasize the importance of fire safety.
One inci-
dent resulted
in fatal inju-
ries to a ser-
vice member
as well as the
destruction of
government a
quarters.
The Sailor
placed a pot
on the stove,
turned it on,
then went
upstairs and
fell asleep. The A
unattended
pot and con-
tents ignited.
Another ser-
vice member
in a barracks
room poured
cooking oil in
a frying pan,
turned on ]DiPStock
the stove and
stepped away momentarily.
The pan ignited. The Sailor discovered smoke and the
grease fire the pan ignited and tried to extinguish it by
throwing the frying pan into a sink filled with water.
Steam activated the fire sprinkler system and water dam-
aged six barracks rooms.
These fires were avoidable had the occupants remem-
bered basic fire safety tips when cooking. The leading
cause of kitchen fires is unattended cooking. Don't let
yourself be distracted in the kitchen. Small grease fires
should only be extinguished when it is safe to approach
the fire and by placing the lid over the pan and turning off
the burner.
The pan should never be removed from the stove because
of the potential to splatter or spill burning oil. Occupants
should never place a burning pan in water because of
the serious potential to spread the fire when the burning
grease hits the water.
For more information on fie safety, call the NAS Jax'
Fire Prevention Division at 542-5597.

14 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, June 18, 2009


Protect yourself from identity theft


By Lt.j.g. Roni Beasley
Judge Advocate General Corps


Imagine being deployed for a year.
During your deployment your
sole focus is your mission, leav-
ing little time to ponder anything
else. Then, the day finally arrives
and you are scheduled to return
home. Upon your return you are noti-
fied that your home is in foreclosure,
your Honda Accord has been repos-
sessed and you owe Citibank $10,000
on an outstanding credit card along
with attorney's fees from the lawsuit
in which a judgment was entered
against you.
This scenario is very hard for any-
one to digest. Now, just imagine hav-
ing to digest it all knowing that you
have never owned a home, a Honda
Accord or a Citibank credit card.
Your new reality is that you are a vic-
tim of identity theft.
Identity theft occurs when some-
one uses your name, social security
number, credit card number or other
personal information without your
permission to obtain credit or com-
mit fraud. According to the Federal
Trade Commission (FTC), at least 9
million Americans have their identi-
ties stolen each year.
Unfortunately, military members
are more susceptible to identity theft
than members of the general public.
For example, it is easier for someone
to become privy to a service member's
social security number and other iden-


tifying information. For years the mil-
itary has used social security numbers
as personal identifiers, printing the
number on military and dependant
I.D. cards. Additionally, service mem-
bers are often deployed for extended
periods of time, making it difficult to
closely monitor their credit.
However, the Department of
Defense (DOD) is taking measures
to minimize the risk of identity
theft against service members. For
instance, a plan has been put into
play to reissue all military I.D. cards
with only the last four digits of the
social security number printed on the
I.D. Additionally, DOD has partnered
with the FTC to launch The Military
Sentinel (http://www.ftc.gov/senti-
nel/military/). This online complaint
system allows military members and
DOD civilian employees to report
identity theft and other consumer
frauds directly to the FTC.
Identity theft can cost a victim a lot
of time and money, but if you are a
service member having your identity
stolen could cost you your security
clearance or even your job. In order to
avoid security clearance issues, care-
ful steps can be taken to ensure that
your credit and identity do not become
compromised. First, keep a close
watch on your credit history. Make
sure you take advantage of services
that offer yearly free credit reports
such as, www.annualcreditreport.
com. This is an online service that
provides you with credit reports from


Experian, Tran Union and Equifax.
Second, if you are deploying or are
an active duty service member who
moves around a lot, place an active
duty alert on your credit report. An
active duty alert is effective for one
year and requires creditors to go the
extra mile to verify your identity
before granting credit in your name.
This alert can be obtained by contact-
ing any of the three credit reporting
agencies or other identity protection
services such as TrustedlD, Lifelock,
and IdentityGuard.
Finally, be cognizant of everyone
around you and to whom you disclose
your personal information. When I
say disclose, I don't just mean who
you knowingly disclose information
to, also make sure that the persons)
or entities you are disclosing informa-
tion to are in fact creditable.
Be careful and check everything you
dispose of and, pay careful attention
not to discard anything with iden-
tifying information. Hence, if you
don't currently own a shredder now
is as good a time to invest because
everything from pre-approved credit
cards to bank statements should be
shredded before being tossed into the
dumpster.

Leggings
Leggings have now become a runway staple and can go
under dresses and tunics even in hot weather because they
aren't as heavy as pants. They are a great way to defend
legs from UVA and UVB rays while running errands or at
an outdoor barbeque.
'"Women have a tendency to develop skin cancer on their
legs at a much higher rate than men," Chon said. "This is
probably due to more sun exposure over time from wear-
ing bathing suits, shorts and skirts."
Long Dresses
Another leg-saving fashion trend that is extremely pop-
ular on the runways for spring/summer 2009 is the move
from "mini" to "maxi.". Long dresses are everywhere, and
are being worn for day and night.
Hats
Modern, wide-brimmed sun hats shield the face, neck,
ears and chest from the sun. This season on the runway,
the bigger the brim, the better!
Sun hats also should be tightly woven. If the hat of
choice is straw, be sure the sun isn't peeking through by
holding the hat over the ground and looking at the shadow
it casts. If the shadow is speckled with light, think about
investing in a new one.
Tunic Tops
Pretty, "boho" style beach cover-ups with long sleeves
are a great way to save a person's skin from being over
exposed in a teeny-bikini. Tunic tops are not only perfect
on the beach but also can transition from day to night
when worn with the right accessories, like chunky brace-
lets, necklaces and belts!
"When you're at the beach, any extra help you can get
is great," Chon said. "Continue to wear sunscreen, but an
additional cover-up is essential, especially anything that
has long sleeves."
Scarves
Summery shawls and scarves in lightweight fabrics are
back again this season! Starlets everywhere are wearing
them, and they keep often forgotten spots, such as the
back of the neck and delicate decolletage, safe from harm.
Even men can get in on this skin-saving trend.
"Women are usually pretty good about applying sun-
screen to their face, but generally forget their necks and
the 'v' of their chests," Chon said. "A light scarf is a great
way to cover neglected skin that gets a lot of sun exposure
during summer months."
One Piece Bathing Suits
While bathing suits are not known for providing much
in the way of coverage, the new trend of one-piece bath-
ing suits gives skin on the stomach an extra layer of
protection. One-piece suits also provide more coverage of
the lower back, an area often missed while applying sun-
screen.
Maximize clothing's sun protection power
'There are certain colors and fabrics that will offer more
protection than others," Chon said.

NAS Jax


2008





Water





Quality





Report

From NAVFAC SE Public Works Department
The Naval Facilities Engineering Command South-
east (NAVFAC SE), Public Works Department
. (PWD),. as the NAS Jacksonville water utility
service provider, is pleased to provide the 2008 Water
Quality Report. PWD provides a safe and dependable
supply of drinking water through two deep wells that
draw from the Floridan aquifer. In 2008, the Department
of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water
Assessment that identified no potential sources of con-
tamination near our wells. Assessment results are on the
DEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program
Web site at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.
- Treatment of the water supply includes aeration for odor
control and chlorination for disinfection. In 2003, NAS
Jax started receiving potable water from JEA, therefore,
some of the data in this report is from JEA testing.
PWD routinely monitors for contaminants in NAS
Jax's drinking water according to federal and state laws
and regulations. Except as indicated, the following table
shows monitoring results from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2008.
As approved by U. S. Environmental Protection Agency
(USEPA), the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection reduced monitoring requirements for certain
contaminants to less than once per year because concen-
trations of these contaminants are not expected to signifi-
cantly vary from year to year. Therefore some of the data
is more than one year old.
Below are the definitions of terms and abbreviations
used in the report:
* Action Level (AL) - the concentration of a contaminant
which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other require-
ments which a water system must follow.
* Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) - The highest
level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water.,
MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the
best available treatment technology.
* Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) - is the
Level of a contaminant in drinking water below which
there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLG
allows for a margin of safety.
* Maximum Residual Disinfection Level (MRDL) - The
highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water.
There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfec-
tant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
* Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG)
- The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which
there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do
not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
microbial contaminants
* Non-Detects (ND) - laboratory analysis indicates that
the constituent is not present.
* Not Applicable (N/A) - No value limit or restriction
has been applied to, this particular parameter.
* Parts per billion (ppb) - one part per billion corre-
sponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in
$10,000,000.
* Parts per million (ppm) - one part per million cor-
responds to one minute in two years or a single penny in
$10,000.
* Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) - picocuries per liter is a
measure of radioactivity in water.
Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in
the environment and are used as an indicator that other,
potentially harmful bacteria may be present. Coliforms
were found in more samples than allowed during the
months of May and September 2008 and this was a warn-
ing of potential problems. Follow-up sampling confirmed
that no problems existed in the NAS Jax water supply.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and
bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reser-
voirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface
of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally
occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive mate-
rial, and can pick up substances resulting from the pres-
ence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water
include:


(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacte-
ria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife,
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals,
which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban
stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater dis-
charges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a
variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater
runoff, and residential uses.


TEST RESULTS TABLE - NAS JACKSONVILLE
Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants and inorganic contaminants are the highest detected level at any sampling
point, depending on the sampling frequency. The water received from JEA had minute detections of radiological parameters, SOCs and
inorganic contaminants, all below maximum contaminant levels, as indicated below.

� (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic

industrial processes and petroleum production, and can
also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-
occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and
mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the
Environmental Protection Agency prescribes regulations
which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water
provided by public water systems. FDA regulations estab-
lish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must
provide the same protection for public health.
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious
health problems, especially for pregnant women and
young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from
materials and components associated with service lines
and home plumbing. NAVFAC SE is responsible for pro-
viding high quality drinking water, but cannot control
the variety of materials used in plumbing components.
When your water has been sitting for several hours, you
can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing


your tap for 30 seconds to two minutes before using water
for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead-in
your water, you may wish to have your water tested.
Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods,
and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available
from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.
epa.gov/safewater/lead.
All drinking water, including bottled water, may rea-
sonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of
some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does
not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health
risk. More information about contaminants and potential
health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA Safe
Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
MCLs are set at very stringent levels: to understand
the possible health effects described for many regulated
contaminants, a person would have to drink two liters-of
water every day at the MCL for a lifetime to have a one-
in-a-million chance of having the described health effect,
For more information, NAS Jax housing residerfts

Looking back to 1967...


Photo by William Swisher
Near the NAS Jacksonville seawall along the St. Johns River, a VP-30 flight engineer (top of the fuselage) checks the
Wright Cyclone radial powerplants of his P2V-7 Neptune. This was the final Neptune variant produced by Lockheed
that included upgraded powerplants, jet pods, improved wingtip tanks, APS-20 search radar, bulged cockpit canopy,
observation nose and MAD tail. One of 311 built, it would eventually be replaced by the Lockheed P-3 Orion.



Standing by no snacks at baseball


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


You can put away the Mother of the
Year award. I haven't won it again.
Last week's column, in which I
expressed my frustration over snacks
at children's athletic events, won me
few friends. Believing that children
will not perish from hunger during a
two-hour baseball game puts you in
an odd sort of minority.
When kids are playing outside at
home, mothers have to call them in
and remind them to stop and have
a snack. Out on the baseball field,
however, they can't go more than 30
minutes without a bag of chips. Why?
Because we as a society have trained
our children to think this way, just as
we have conditioned them to expect
goody bags at birthday parties and
prizes after a visit to the doctor or
dentist. There is a material reward
for everything.
Many readers think I'm a fun-vac-
uum. However, if it's kids' best inter-
ests we are talking about, then the
argument over treats after a game
is a legitimate and important one.
Participating in a sport is a healthy
activity. Why must it be rewarded
with brownies? We already know that
childhood obesity and diabetes are
national problems. Being "good par-
ents" in this context means teaching
your children healthy eating habits.
Conflict ensues when on the baseball
field being a "good parent" is para-
doxically defined as making sure that
no one feels discomfort, whether it be
hunger pain, the "pain" of sitting on
the bench and waiting your turn, or
not being picked to play first base. The
children naturally want to feel good
and have a reward. We as parents
have unfortunately catered to them.
Predictably, readers also expressed
frustration about baseball being


S


played during din-
nertime and lasting
two hours. This is an
understandable con-
cern. Except plenty of
parents manage to feed
their children a healthy
snack before the game
and then give them din-
ner afterwards. Yes,
that requires extra
work, but we are moth-
ers, the same people Sarah
who can buckle car seats one-handed.
We have never been short on creative
ways to make things manageable.
A frustration expressed by parents
who agreed with my column is the
fact that dinner on the bench is a dis-
traction for the whole team. Taking
food onto the field is a safety concern,
but eating on the sidelines causes
undue commotion when the players'
attention should be on the game. It's
respectful to watch your teammates
when they are up at bat, but seeing
the game from the bench also pro-
vides more opportunities to learn the
rules and strategies.
Of course, the game is not the only
thing to be learned. Inside a team
sport there are other life lessons,
many of which involve uncomfort-
able things such as failure and disap-
pointment. My fear is that we have
become too opposed to letting our
children experience these challenging
situations. We want everything to be
fair. There are no winners or losers.
No one is better than anyone else.
Everyone gets a treat.
In Florida, Ford played the outfield
for the entire first season. He sim-
ply wasn't good enough to play any-
where else. But he worked hard, paid


attention and practiced.
Getting what he wanted
became a motivator.
The next year he
earned himself a spot
at second base. And
when he made his first
triple play, he was
rightly deemed MVP of
that game, even though
doing so could have
-- potentially hurt other
miley players' feelings.
At the end of the second season,
much to Ford's disappointment,
he wasn't picked for the All Stars.
Someone else had earned that reward.
I resisted the urge to make Ford's
pain go away. Back then I wrote,
"Sometimes, being a mother means
letting you experience things that will
break my heart even as they build
your character."
The best advice I ever received
about kids' sports was that moms
meddling in the dugout interfere with
one of the important rites-of-passage
for boys the joy, the pain and the
triumph of baseball.
For decades, the baseball diamond
was a place where boys grow up. They
learn to deal with disappointment,
bumps and bruises, dirt in their eyes,
and, yes, even some teasing from
their peers. They become a team play-
er. They learn not to complain. They
realize that meeting a challenge is
the best reward of all.
I don't think we are asking too
much of our children when we expect
these things, or when we expose them
to situations that may not have a
reward and might not be "fair." In
fact, I believe we are cheating them if
we do not.

FROM THE HOMEFRONT


HEY, MONEYCHIC!

Hey, MoneyChic!
I've been in the Navy for about ten years. With this
much time invested, I've definitely made the decision
to "stay in."
Now that I've got a family to provide for, I watch
every penny. One added burden to our family budget
is repaying my student loans I had from before joining
the Navy. It seems like I'll be paying on them forever.
Do you have any salvation for me?
MoneyChic says:
Actually I've got some
great salvation news
for you. Check out the
Public Service Loan
Forgiveness program.
This program offers
loan forgiveness after 10
years of public service
employment. Serving in f
the military qualifies as
public service!
To qualify for the loan
forgiveness, you must
make monthly loan pay-
ments for ten years (120
payments) while work-
ing full time in public service. Most students borrow
federal student loans from one of two major federal
student loan programs. To see if your loans are eli-
gible, check out www.nslds.ed.gov.
For more information about the Public Service Loan
Forgiveness program, visit www.equaljusticeworks.
org/resources/student-debt-relief.
This may just erase the remaining student loan
debt that you have and free up some room in your
family budget.
Not a bad perk for serving your country.










CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


Celebrating Father's Day

By Chaplain (Lt.) Buster Williams


When I think of Father's Day,
I can't help but think about
all of those children with
military dads who are not able to be
at home with their families for these
special occasions. The strength of
our Navy (and indeed our nation)
is fundamentally related to the
strength of our families.
Our culture has had a major trans-
formation over the past 50 years in
how we define the family. Sadly, and
far too often, the dad is not in the
picture and this has proven to be det-
rimental to the children who grow
up in single-parent homes with very
little, if any, real relationship with
their dad.
While I give great credit to the
mothers who have struggled to raise
their children in the absence of a
father, the challenge we have as Navy
dads is how to be the best fathers to
our children and buck the trend of
leaving too many mothers and chil-
dren to fend for themselves.
I have a couple of suggestions for
all those men out there about being
a father. First, if you don't have any
children I would encourage you to
think long and hard about what those
responsibilities entail before you actu-
ally become a dad. The time to think
about what it means to be a dad is not
after the fact, but before. One of the
great privileges of being a man is to
become a father. But, like anything
else in life, the best fathers are going
to be those who work hard to prepare


Chaplain (Lt.) Buster Williams


themselves for the challenges ahead.
For younger shipmates out there,
now is the time to begin preparing
yourself for the future. Do some self-
reflection and make those changes
you need to become the man you
would want to have as a father. It
might mean cutting back or giving up
alcohol, video games, dangerous hob-
bies, running up credit cards, or any
number of things. But the key is for
you to start thinking about the future
and working to prepare now.
For those shipmates who are dads, I
have some counsel as well. If you are
married, the best thing you can do for
your kids is be the best husband you
can be. Show your wife that you love
her and respect her and your kids will
begin to feel the satisfaction and joy


of living in a loving home with both
parents.
A child-centered home can be a
dangerous thing. Your children want
to have the comfort and security of
knowing that their parents love each
other and are committed to one anoth-
er no matter what. This security will
help them overcome any number of
struggles in life. So, think about how
you can strengthen your marriage.
Consider signing up for a PREP
class at the chapel, or take advantage
of the Marriage Enrichment Retreats
that CREDO has to offer. These can
really help strengthen those bonds
that are so critical for our children. If
you are divorced with kids, or are a
single dad, you need to work overtime
to provide your children with that
loving support they need from their
dad. Get involved or stay involved
with their lives. This will pay huge
dividends in the future. Your chil-
dren need to know that you are there
for them, even if you don't live in
the same house. Go to those special
events at school, take a special vaca-
tion together, get involved in their
extra-curricular activities. In short,
make a determined effort to remind
them of your love for them.
Finally, I encourage you to reflect on
the Fatherhood of God. After all, who
better to imitate in this area of father-
hood than the one who created fathers
in the first place? Happy Father's Day
shipmates and may God especially be
with those children whose fathers are
deployed this Father's Day.

Preventing fires in


government housing

From the Naval Safety Center


Personnel who live in government quarters must
realize that fire safety and fire protection are
important responsibilities. In the first eight
months of fiscal year 2009, there were 135 fires in gov-
ernment quarters aboard naval installations, of which
79 resulted from unattended cooking or unsafe cooking
practices. Two of these fires highlight the dangers and
emphasize the importance of fire safety.

dent resulted
in fatal inju-



destruction of
government
quarters.
The Sailor
placed a pot
on the stove,
turned it on,
then went
upstairs and
fell asleep. The
unattended
pot and con-
tents ignited.
Another ser-
vice member
in a barracks
room poured
cooking oil in
a frying pan,
turned on JDiPStock
the stove and
stepped away momentarily.
The pan ignited. The Sailor discovered smoke and the
grease fire the pan ignited and tried to extinguish it by
throwing the frying pan into a sink filled with water.
Steam activated the fire sprinkler system and water dam-
aged six barracks rooms.
These fires were avoidable had the occupants remem-
bered basic fire safety tips when cooking. The leading
cause of kitchen fires is unattended cooking. Don't let
yourself be distracted in the kitchen. Small grease fires
should only be extinguished when it is safe to approach
the fire and by placing the lid over the pan and turning off
the burner.
The pan should never be removed from the stove because
of the potential to splatter or spill burning oil. Occupants
should never place a burning pan in water because of
the serious potential to spread the fire when the burning
grease hits the water.
For more information on fire safety, call the NAS Jax
Fire Prevention Division at 542-5597.

Team prepares for hurricane response

By Sue Brink Life Safety Evaluation, Safety and

rP | ... Fc. ,, HAZMAT Awareness, and CPR/


lg neer ng iomma
(NAVFAC) Southeast Con-
tingency Engineering Response
Team (CERT) held a three-day
training session on board NAS
Jacksonville May 27-29 to pre-
pare for the 2009 Hurricane
Season.
"Our NAVFAC Southeast Areas
of Responsibility encompass
approximately 80 percent of the
probable 'strike zone' for landfall
in the Continental U.S. by a hur-
ricane, tropical storm or tropical
depression," says Don Maconi,
NAVFAC Southeast Contingency
Response Engineer/Disaster
Coordinator.
The rain-heavy nor'easter that
hammered Northeast Florida the
week of May 18 served as a vivid
reminder of the need to be pre-
pared.
CERT members receive first-
class instruction in Post-Disaster
Facility Damage Assessment and


First Aid.
NAVFAC CERTs are one of the
key tools in disaster recovery,
consisting of one or more disaster
assessment teams, in addition to
personnel who enable installa-
tion recovery efforts. The teams
consist of NAVFAC volunteers
such as active duty civil engineer
corps officers, and civilian engi-
neers, architects, project manag-
ers, facilities managers, contract
specialists and over 70 NAVFAC
Southeast Patriot volunteers.
NAVFAC Southeast will be first
on the ground after a storm to
ensure the required assessments
are made to get the installation
back to normal. The sooner shore
infrastructure is turned back over
to the installation, the sooner
Sailors, Navy civilians and their
families will be ready to fulfill
the Navy's operation and combat
readiness mission.

Seatbelts:


What's so hard to figure out?

By April Phillips
Naval Safety Center Public Affairs


Seatbelts are a no-brainer. They
save lives, they're easy to use,
and they're required in 49
states.
New Hampshire should amend its
state motto from "Live Free or Die"
to "Live Free and Die in a Car Crash.
While that state doesn't have a seat
belt law for adults, it does require
children under 18 to buckle up. There
aren't a lot of Sailors and Marines sta-
tioned in New Hampshire, but if they
happen to be traveling through the
state, they're still required to wear a
seat belt because Navy and Marine
Corps regulations require it.
Most people don't need a law or the
UCMJ to tell them to buckle up. For
many, it's second nature, and they
wouldn't dream of riding in a car -
or allowing anyone else to ride with
them without fastening a seatbelt.
There's no gray area in the statis-
tics, as the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA)
shows in their 2008 study. NHTSA
found that 90 percent of drivers and
occupants now use seatbelts. That's
an all-time high.
Tellingly, as the seatbelt usage
rates have gone up, the vehicle occu-
pant fatalities per mile traveled have
steadily declined. People who are
thrown completely out of a vehicle in
a car crash have a 75 percent chance
of being killed. NHTSA estimates that
in 2006, 15,383 lives were saved by
seatbelts.
So why do some people still refuse
to wear them? Are those who drive
unrestrained hard-headed, reck-


7


i1r


less, or just plain stupid? Sometimes,
they're wasted drunk, and having too
much to drink increases the odds that
a driver will neglect to wear a seat-
belt.
An example of this is a service
member who'd had way too many. He
combined alcohol and speed and he
wasn't wearing his seatbelt. The pas-
senger, however, was wearing his.
The drunk driver took a 30-mile-
per-hour curve at 70 and didn't make
it. His vehicle flipped several times,
he was ejected from the car, and pro-
nounced dead at the scene. The pas-
senger who was buckled up made it
out alive.
Summer is a time when many
Sailors and Marines are behind the
wheel of a car or truck, driving to


vacation destinations.
You never know when the unex-
pected might occur. Wear seatbelts
because they make sense, are the law,
and are the rule for all military mem-
bers. And make your family members
wear them because you love them.

MASN Marcus Locklear grabs two cones during the traffic
lane shift on Yorktown Avenue. Beginning June 29, the use
of traffic cones will be discontinued and drivers must follow
lane control lights.



TRAFFIC:


attention


From Page 1
a green light/arrow at the earliest opportunity.
Anytime a power surge hits the system, or if a conflict
is detected in the system, the controller is programmed
to go into fail safe mode. This means the lane control
lights will show red "X's" for both of the middle lanes. The
system will eventually cycle through and return back
to the correct pattern. You may also notice from time
to time that one set of lane control lights may have the
center two lanes completely blank. That is due to a
fault that controls just that one set of lights. The fail
safe mode again comes into play and the middle two
lane control lights will just go off. Again, on the next
cycle, the lights will normally reset and work properly.
Bottom Line: The three things you always need to
remember are: (1) When traffic cones and lane signals are
both present, traffic cones take precedence over lane con-
trol lights. (2) After the cones are removed, check the lane
control lights when you enter Yorktown Avenue to see
what the pattern is and get in a lane with a green arrow
(light). (3) Always check behind you if you are going to
turn left on Yorktown to ensure that no one is coming up
the lane to the left of you. After an evaluation period, a
final decision will be made as to whether to permanently
remove the cones, or if in fact they are still needed. So
please, watch the lane control lights and drive safely!

VP-8 Commanding Officer Cmdr. Sean Liedman thanks his
troops and their families for all their support during the
squadron's move to NAS Jacksonville. Liedman arrived on the
last flight after the squadron completed a six-month deploy-
ment to the Middle East.


VP-8: From Wing Five


to Wing Eleven

From Page 1


VP-8 has moved during the span of their history and each
time you have set the standards and I have no doubt you
will do that here. Thank you for your service, thanks for
what you did with Wing Five and thanks for what you did
for your country during the past six months," said Hoke.
The squadron was then officially welcomed by their new
wing commodore. "In addition to thanking VP-8, I'd like to
thank the folks who have made this happen. This is a his-
toric move and for the past two and a half years, we have all
looked forward to making this move a reality. I especially
want to thank the families for helping with this move and
welcome home the Tigers. You are home!" added Cozad.
"Thank you for welcoming VP-8 to our new homeport
at NAS Jacksonville," Liedman told the crowd from the
podium. T'..I.I,- is historic, because as VP-8 closes out 38
years of service at NAS Brunswick, we open a new chap-
ter at NAS Jacksonville. I can't think of a better way to
put a bookmark between those two chapters than to do it
in conjunction with returning from our highly successful
deployment to the Middle East and Africa."
"During our deployment, this incredible team of men
and women standing proudly in front of you in their des-
ert uniforms safety executed more than 600 sorties and
4,400 flight operations. And, they achieved that remark-
able record despite operating in some harsh environments.
These remarkable Sailors pressed on to accomplish the
mission, conquering every challenge with pride and pro-
fessionalism," continued Liedman. "But in my opinion, the
real heroes to this story are the Tiger families. In addition
to overcoming the normal challenges in the absence of
their spouses, many of these families executed a 1,300-
mile journey from Brunswick to Jacksonville. Now we look
forward to adding to our 66-year legacy at our new home
at NAS Jax."
VP-8 deployed in December 2008 from their former
homeport at NAS Brunswick, Maine. During their six-
month deployment to Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar and
Camp Lemonier, Djibouti, the squadron flew in support of
Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom and coali-
tion counter-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden and
Somali Basin.
The Fighting Tigers generated an impressive 97 percent
mission completion rate during the deployment despite
the challenges of operating from the expeditionary envi-
ronments of Qatar and Djibouti. Aircrews from VP-8 were
the first Department of Defense asset to come to the aid
of the motor vessel Maersk Alabama and provided round-
the-clock surveillance until the rescue of the ship's cap-
tain, Richard Phillips.
At NAS Jacksonville, VP-8 will take up residence in
the newly opened Hangar 511. The relocation from New
England to Florida comes as NAS Brunswick is scheduled
to close under the Base Realignment and Closure plan.
"There are a lot of people who are really going to miss
Maine, said Lt. j.g. Liz Bennett. "But we have a lot to
look forward to here in Jacksonville. I know there are a
bunch of us that can't wait to hit the beach and start our
summer.
Over the next year, VP-8 will be followed by VP-10 and
VP-26 as they depart NAS Brunswick on deployment
before relocating to NAS Jacksonville. With the return
from deployment of VP-8's last aircraft, the Fighting
Tigers look forward to opening a new chapter in their sto-
ried squadron history.

Boeing P-8A Poseidon test aircraft "T2" took off from Renton Field, Wash., June 5 on its
first flight. T2 landed almost three hours later at Boeing Field in Seattle. The flight plan
for T2, painted in its new U.S. Navy livery, included a fly by of NAS Whidbey Island,
Wash. to give Navy personnel a close-up look at the Poseidon. The new multi-mission
aircraft reached a maximum altitude of 25,000 feet as pilots performed airborne sys-
tems checks such as engine accelerations and decelerations, autopilot flight modes and
auxiliary power unit shutdowns and starts. T2 is one of five test aircraft being assembled
and tested as part of the System Development and Demonstration contract that Boeing
received in 2004. The program's first test aircraft, T1, completed its first flight on April
25. The Navy is purchasing 117 P-8A Poseidons to replace its fleet of P-3C Orions.
Initial operational capability is planned for 2013.

VP-30 recognizes 'Sailors in the Arena'


By Lt. j.g. Glenn Greenleaf
VP-30 Public Affairs
Four exceptional leaders and men-
tors were awarded the Navy and
Marine Corps Achievement Medal
for leadership achievement May 22 by VP-
30 Commanding Officer Capt. Rich Fite.
In the tradition inspired by President
Theodore Roosevelt, Fite recognized:
Lt. Gregory Jenkins, a pilot instructor
ADCS(AW/SW) Jeffery Waters, LCPO
of maintenance control
AD1(SW) Kenneth Neville, LPO of
maintenance administration
AWO1(AW/NAC) Tonya McMilon, LPO
of Information Systems Department
"These remarkable 'Pro's Nest' sail-
ors earned this recognition through their
exceptional mentorship and deckplate lead-
ership," said Fite.
"They exemplify the power of example
and the power of principle that inspire
Sailors to excel every day. Their positive
attitude, solid work ethic, attention to


detail, and genuine concern for their fellow
man positively impact their work centers,
our command and our community as a
whole."
Fite also spoke the immortal words of
President Theodore Roosevelt:
"It is not the critic who counts; not the
man who points out how the strong man
stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could
have done them better. The credit belongs
to the man who is actually in the arena;
whose face is marred by dust and sweat
and blood; who strives valiantly; who
comes short again and again because
there is no effort without error and short-
coming; but who does actually strive to do
the deeds; who knows great enthusiasm,
the great devotions; who spends himself in
a worthy cause; who at the best knows in
the end triumph of high achievement, and
who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails
while daring greatly so that his place
shall never be with those cold and timid
souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

Hurricane Season is
here, and living in
a hurricane zone
means there is a good pos-
sibility of having to evacu-
ate.
Given this, there are four
Chief of Naval Operations
(CNO) mandated items
for all Navy person-
nel: (1) enrollment in the
Defense Travel System
(DTS) Web site; (2) obtain-
ing a Government Travel
Charge Card (GTCC);
(3) updating your Navy
Family Accountability
& Assessment System
(NFAAS) account; and (4)
and updating your Total
Workforce Management
System (TWMS) self-ser-
vice account.
Defense Travel System -
According to NAVADMIN
315/08, DTS is the
Department of Defense
(DoD) mandated electron-
ic order writing system
when Navy personnel go
on official Temporary Duty
Travel (TDY) or if there is
a need to evacuate due to a
natural disaster.
All military personnel
must be enrolled in DTS, or
they will not receive reim-
bursement after an evacu-
ation until enrollment is
completed and DTS orders
are written.
Military family members
will be issued separate
evacuation orders by their
sponsor's command using a
different system than DTS.
DTS travel advances


and claims will be pro-
cessed online, and all non-
DTS advances and travel
claims will be filed with
the Jacksonville Travel
Processing Center (TPC)
by completing a paper
travel voucher.
The main advantages of
DTS are quick advances for
those who are ineligible for
a GTCC, as well as quick
payment of travel claims
upon return of an evacu-
ation, most times within
two to three work days,
versus two to three weeks
with TPC.
See your command/
department DTS
Representative to enroll
today at www.defensetrav-
el.osd.mil. The DTS help
desk can also be reached at
1-800-378-5406.
Government Travel
Charge Card According
to NAVADMIN 316/08,
Navy personnel are man-
dated to have a GTCC dur-
ing official TDYs and evac-
uations to pay for essential
needs such as vehicle fuel,
food, lodging, tolls, rental
car (if needed), and even
cash advances.
However, the GTCC shall
not be used for non-essen-
tial items such as gifts and
entertainment.
All card transactions are
recorded, and any fraud-
ulent use is punishable
under the UCMJ. The pro-
cess to obtain a GTCC can
take one to three weeks,
so contact your command
GTCC Coordinator today.

civilian personnel must
update their TWMS infor-
mation. Login to https://

service/. In the left-hand
column, click on "Personal/

One of the biggest con-
cerns during Hurricane
Ike, aside from accounting
for personnel and family
members, was having suf-
ficient personal funds, so
be sure you and your fam-
ily are prepared now.
Remember, it's not a
question of "if' a hurricane
will affect your area, it's a
question of "when."

VP-5 returns

from Okinawa

and El Salvador

By Lt j.g. Kenny Relethford
and Lt. J.g. Jason Bruce
VP-5


After their six-month deploy-
ment to Kadena Air Force Base
in Okinawa, Japan and to a for-
ward operating location at Comalapa Air
Base, El Salvador, the "Mad Foxes" of
VP-5 began their transition home June
1. VP-5's split-site deployment supported
Pacific Command (PACOM) operations
in the Western Pacific while simultane-
ously supporting Southern Command
operations in the Caribbean and South
America.
While deployed, the squadron conduct-
ed joint and combined military exercises,
sent their combat aircrews to multiple
PACOM detachment sites and contrib-
uted to the local communities that hosted
them.
The Mad Foxes Maintenance
Department proved flexible by conducting
an organizational restructuring during
the early part of this intensive deploy-
ment. With more than 1,030 mishap-
free flights consisting of more than 4,150
hours, the squadron demonstrated their
ability to accomplish the diverse warfare
missions of the P-3 Orion worldwide.
Mad Foxes in 7th Fleet
VP-5 hit the deck running at Kadena
AFB by immediately demonstrating the
expeditionary nature of the P-3C Orion by
sending a combat aircrew to participate in
Cobra Gold, a coordinated exercise with
the Thailand Air Force and USS Essex
(LHD-2).
The Mad Foxes also supported the USS
John C. Stennis (CVN-74) Carrier Strike
Group on several occasions. During an
undersea warfare exercise, the squadron

Foxes" happily greets his 4-year-old son,

month deployment.
was joined by P-3C Orions from VP-47,
VP-40, VP-8 and VP-9 to fly multiple sor-
ties where they operated in concert with
U.S. Navy assets and Japanese Maritime
Self Defense Force (JMSDF) ships and
aircraft.
Several detachments were conduct-
ed to the U.S. territory of Guam. One
participated in improved extended echo
ranging exercises along with search and
rescue (SAR) efforts with the U.S. Coast
Guard. Another assisted the Palauan
Coast Guard and Australian Navy in
combating illegal fishing in the vast area
between Palau and the Federated States
of Micronesia.
Two separate detachments were sent to
the Philippines for training exercises and
missions supporting the global war on ter-
rorism, as well as SAR assignments.
Another detachment visited Pohang,
South Korea for Foal Eagle 2009,
an annual combined exercise with the
Republic of South Korea Navy that rein-
forces U.S. and South Korean readi-
ness to discourage conflict on the Korea
Peninsula.
A favorite detachment for many
Mad Foxes was an exercise with the
11th Squadron Shepherds of the Royal

VP-8 'Fighting Tigers'


write new chapter


in squadron history
By Lt. j.g Donald Lauderdale
VP 8 PAO I B I


une 10 marked the beginning of a
new chapter in the 66-year history
of VP-8 when the squadron's last P-
3C arrived at NAS Jacksonville from the
Middle East.
The crew included "Fighting Tigers"
Commanding Officer Cmdr. Sean
Liedman. They were welcomed by
Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance
Wing Eleven Capt. Kyle Cozad,
Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance
Wing Five Capt. Jim Hoke, and NAS Jax
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby
Jr. at a special ceremony held at their
new home in Hangar 511.
The Fighting Tiger's skipper and his
crew were met by squadron members,
families, friends, local dignitaries and
base employees who gathered to officially
welcome them to their new home.
"On this last deployment, you raised
the bar. You made a difference. You went
to some of the world's most dangerous
places and supported our warfighters,"
said Hoke.
"As we saw with the Maersk Alabama
situation, when there were things that

The placement of traffic cones during the morning and after-
noon rush hours by NAS Jax Security personnel can be a dan-
gerous undertaking.


traffic cones goi


A message from Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
NAS Jax Commanding Officer
Shipmates:
On Monday, June 29, the traf-
fic cones will no longer be placed
on Yorktown Avenue. Placement of
cones on Yorktown was begun several
years ago to help remind drivers of
the lane configuration. Although they
initially reduced afternoon accidents,
they have also caused confusion as to
what to follow: the lane control lights
or the traffic cones. In some cases
this has now resulted in accidents
and near misses.
It is imperative to note that THE
PLACEMENT OF TRAFFIC CONES
BY SECURITY ALWAYS TAKES
PRECEDENCE OVER LANE
CONTROL LIGHTS, PER FLORIDA
DRIVING LAW.
Additionally, the placement of
the cones by security personnel on
Yorktown, is in and of itself, a dan-
gerous undertaking. A recent mishap


where a car hit the security vehicle
while the cones were being placed,
highlighted this issue.
The traffic lanes are reconfigured
each day to accommodate our peak
traffic periods. The normal traffic
pattern is two lanes in and two lanes
out.
However, in the morning, the pat-
tern is three lanes in beginning at
0345 and ending at 0815.
In the afternoon, the pattern revers-
es to three lanes out beginning at
1345 and ending at 1700.
The normal traffic pattern of two
lanes in and two lanes out takes place
at all other times including weekends
and holidays. A lane transition peri-
od allows for a smooth changing of
the lane lights.
When changing from the two in
and two out pattern, the lane to be
cleared always changes from a green
arrow to either a yellow arrow, or
the entire light may turn yellow
and show a "spot" depending upon


ng away

the model of the lane light. THIS IS
YOUR FIRST WARNING that a lane
is changing and this pattern lasts
approximately four minutes. After
that, the yellow arrow/spot changes
to a red X and THIS IS YOUR FINAL
WARNING. Thus, there will now be
a red X on both sides for that one lane
changing patterns for another four
minutes.
After this, the lane light for the
direction of travel now allowing cars
will change from a red X to a green
arrow for that lane direction. These
times are necessary so in case you
catch a red light, and the traffic pat-
tern changes, you still have time to
move over once the traffic light chang-
es.
That said, DO NOT WAIT FOR THE
LIGHT TO TURN RED BEFORE
YOU CHANGE LANES. The yel-
low light should alert you that it is
now time to move over to a lane with

Medal of Honor recipient administers oath


By HM1 Rebecca Gaddis
MSRON-10 Public Affairs

At his June 1 reen-
listment ceremo-
ny, HMC(SW/
EXW) David Hendricks of
Maritime Expeditionary
Security Squadron
(MSRON) 10 received the
oath of enlistment from a
former hospital corpsman
who wears the Medal of
Honor America's highest
decoration for heroism.
Hendricks said, "I've
always been interested in
military history, as well as
the heritage of Navy hospital
corpsmen. When I learned
that hospital corpsman
and Medal of Honor recipi-
ent Robert Ingram lived in
Jacksonville, I contacted him
to ask if he would adminis-
ter my oath of enlistment.
He graciously agreed."
He added, "It was an honor
and a privilege to meet this
real American hero who
valiantly answered the call,
corpsman up!'"
Hendricks is under orders
to the guided missile cruis-
er USS Gettysburg (CG 64)
based at NS Mayport.
Hendricks urged those in
attendance to read Ingram's
award citation and thank
him for his service. In fact,
due to lost paperwork,
more than 30 years passed

was awarded to Ingram by

wounds before realizing the
third wound was life-threat-
ening, he looked for a way
off the face of the ridge, but
again he heard the call for
corpsman and again, he res-
olutely answered.
Though severely wound-
ed three times, he rendered
aid to those incapable until
he finally reached the right
flank of the platoon. While
dressing the head wound
of another corpsman, he
sustained his fourth bullet
wound.
From 1600 hours until
just prior to sunset, Petty
Officer Ingram pushed,
pulled, cajoled and doctored
his Marines.
Enduring the pain from
his many wounds and dis-
regarding the probability
of his demise, Petty Officer
Ingram's intrepid actions
saved many lives that day.
By his indomitable fight-
ing spirit, daring initiative
and unfaltering dedications
to duty, Petty Officer Ingram
reflected great credit upon
himself and upheld the high-
est traditions of the United
States Naval Service.

to Jacksonville for urgently needed medi-
cal care.
Additionally, HS-7 took part in multiple
exercises to practice the anti-submarine
warfare (ASW) mission, successfully oper-
ating with other ships and aircraft in the
strike group to ensure the carrier strike
group' ability to maneuver at sea.
The Dusty Dogs also enjoyed the unique
privilege of working with the Norwegian
Navy during TSTA. The Norwegian frigate
HNoMS Roald Amundsen (F 311) crossed
the Atlantic to conduct operations with
Carrier Strike Group 10 and HS-7.
Dusty Dog helicopters made several vis-
its to the frigate and achieved the mile-
stone of being the first U.S. Navy helicop-
ter to land on the ship's deck. The crew

included Lt. Cmdr. Jason Young, Lt. j.g.
James Sullivan, AW2 Justin Dove and

The flights to the ship fostered a strong
working relationship between the two
naval forces. The bond could be mea-
sured by the large number of patches and
gifts exchanged between HS-7 crews and
Amundsen personnel.
HS-7 proved they are able to operate con-
sistently at a high level of excellence. This
would not have been possible without the
dedication of the squadron's maintainers
and admin crew.
Flight operations on a carrier are not
possible without fully mission capable heli-
copters, and the Dusty Dogs maintenance
department always made sure that mission
capable helicopters were ready and avail-
able to support Carrier Strike Group 10.

By MCC(SW) Maria Yager

school physical in this 2008 photo.


School and sports

physical now available

From Naval Hospital lax Public Affairs

Are your children enrolled in TRICARE Prime to
Family Medicine at Naval Hospital Jacksonville?
Do they need a school physical because they are
entering school for the first time or changing schools? Do
they need a physical to participate in a school-sponsored
sporting activity? If you answered "yes" to any of the
above, then you need to schedule a physical exam.
Appointments for physical will be available starting the
first week of July on Tuesday and Wednesday and may be
scheduled by calling Central Appointments at (904) 542-
4677.
Be sure to bring your child's immunization record and
any required school forms to the appointment. This may
include items such as the sports physical form or any
school specific forms for medications that the child may
require.
Several immunizations are required for pre-school and
school-aged children. All children up to the age of six
should have received hepatitis B; tetanus, diphtheria and
pertussis (Tdap); polio; measles, mumps, rubella (MMR);
varicella; hepatitis A and meningococcal vaccines.
Pre-teen girls are now encouraged to receive the Gardisil
vaccine. Junior high and high school children may require
some of the vaccines administered to grade school children
and scheduled doses of Tdap, Gardisil, and Meningococcal
vaccines depending upon their documented immuniza-
tions.
Children should dress in shorts, short-sleeved, loose fit-
ting T-shirts, and girls should wear a sports bra.
The above schedule applies to the Family Medicine
Clinic only. If your child is enrolled in the Pediatrics
Clinic please call Central Appointments at 542-4677 for
more information.


The Navy announced plans
June 3 to increase the maxi-
mum number of award points
authorized when computing the final
multiple on Navy-wide advancement
exams for Sailors with in-theater
service as outlined in NAVADMIN
167/09.
"Since the earliest stages of
Operation Iraqi Freedom, the perfor-
mance and advancement results of
Sailors have been monitored to ensure
that in-theater service does not disad-
vantage Sailors. Where warranted
by the data, policy adjustments have
been implemented to counter in-the-
ater advancement challenges," said
Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson, chief of
naval personnel, in the message.
"This action is intended to prevent
the exclusion of in-theater award
points for those Sailors who currently
have the maximum award points for
their pay grade," said Ferguson.
The new policy takes effect in
August for Reserve advancement cycle


085 and September for the active-duty
advancement cycle 204.
Sailors who have served more
than 90 consecutive days in Iraq,
Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa,
Kuwait, Guantanamo Bay, Joint Task
Force 515, or Joint Force Special Task
Force-Philippines after Oct. 24, 2001
are authorized a two-point increase
to the maximum award points autho-
rized.
This increases the maximum num-
ber of award points to 12 for E-4 and
E-5 candidates and 14 points for E-6
candidates.
"There are a lot of [hospital] corps-
men who miss it by half a point.
So, any help is appreciated," said
HM2(FMF) Adrian Evans, assigned
to Navy Branch Health Clinic aboard
Naval Support Activity Mid-South.
Evans completed two deployments
to Iraq as a platoon corpsman for the
2nd Marine Division Fleet Marine
Force. With his prior awards and a
recent Navy Achievement Medal,
Evans is maxed out on award points
- but, the new policy will allow him to


get credit for his overseas contingen-
cy service on his next advancement
exam.
"When you compare the time and
environment a non-operational corps-
man gets to study versus an oper-
ational corpsman, anything extra
helps," said Evans.
In addition to extra award points
for exams, the Navy has offered
Sailors other advancement incentives
for serving in-theater.
According to NAVADMIN 276/08
all chief petty officer and limited duty
officer candidates who are eligible,
meet the requirements, and have the
commanding officer's approval, are
waived from the advancement exami-
nations while serving in-theater.
NAVADMIN 077/05 explains how
Sailors can earn accelerated advance-
ment through the Combat Meritorious
Advancement Program.
In order to qualify for the program,
Sailors must currently be in pay
grades El through E5. The program
is not authorized to promote Sailors
to E7 or above.

words, not lust a great
income, but all the good-
les too! Commissions &
Incentives, vacations,
trips, rewards, health,
dental, life & vision

VP-5: 'Mad Foxes' back home after deployment


From Page 1


Australian Air Force. Operating out of Edinburgh,
Australia, both countries worked together in ASW train-
ing. In March, combat aircrews flew to the aide of USNS
Impeccable (T-AGOS-23), which was being harassed by
Chinese fishing boats in international waters. The air-
craft's presence aided in surveillance and de-escalation of
the situation.
While operating in Okinawa, the Mad Foxes worked
routinely with the JMSDF to maintain control of the sea
lanes around Japan. The JMSDF also operates the P-3
aircraft performing similar missions. The JMSDF and
VP-5 participated in cross-deck training, where crews
from each country flew in each other's aircraft to gain an
understanding of the differences and similarities of how
each force operates.
Lt. Chris Mergen, a VP-5 tactical coordinator, described
his experience with the Japanese as very positive. "The
JMSDF are a very professional and capable ally. The
training for future combined operations with JMSDF was
helpful for both navies in breaking down the language
barrier," he said.
VP-5 in 4th Fleet
The Mad Foxes in El Salvador consisted of four combat
aircrews and three aircraft conducting counter-narco-traf-
ficking missions in South America. Most operations were
coordinated with law enforcement ground forces and fast
patrol boats from Guatemala, Colombia and Honduras.
VP-5 crews performed joint and combined missions
with air assets from the U.S. Customs/Border Patrol, U.S.
Coast Guard, U.S. Air Force, Royal British Air Force, U.S.
Navy Airborne Early Warning assets, as well as SH-60B
helicopters deployed on U.S. Navy ships. VP-5 completed
140 missions leading to a seizure of more than nine narco-
trafficking assets preventing 29 metric tons of illegal
drugs worth over $1 billion s from reaching the United
States.
Shortly before heading home, the Mad Foxes answered
the nation's call by immediately responding to the tragic
crash of Air France Flight 447 off the coast of Brazil, more
than 14 hours away from El Salvador.
Maintenance transition
In late 2008, just prior to the squadron's deployment,
Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 11 directed
squadrons to return to a legacy structure of one main-
tenance department per squadron. VP-5 Maintenance
Officer Lt. Cmdr. Ryan Smith led the transition and certi-
fication process during the squadron's deployment.
The maintenance department had a tremendous work-
load during the deployment to ensure the squadron air-
craft were available to meet their assigned missions.
They managed and performed scheduled and unscheduled
maintenance on seven aircraft, which were comprised of
four distinct mission system configurations. Altogether,

Japan after the squadron's six-month deployment.


they amassed nearly 30,000 man-hours at the two deploy-
ment sites.
Community relations
When not flying, the Mad Foxes worked closely with
their hosts in both El Salvador and Okinawa and were
true ambassadors representing their country with pride
and professionalism. In El Salvador, events were orga-
nized to allow locals a glimpse of P-3C operations.
In addition, volunteers from the squadron spent about
300 hours assisting in a community building project. In
Okinawa, squadron members cleaned a local park, helped
out at a childcare center, practiced English with an ele-
mentary class and spent time at a retirement home clean-
ing and helping out with services.
Job well done
On May 1 Cmdr. Matthew Pregmon was relieved by
Cmdr. Wes Naylor III as commanding officer of VP-5 in
a seamless leadership turnover that saw Cmdr. Jason
Jorgensen assume executive officer duties. Naylor praised
the squadron's performance in a multitude of missions
from two different areas of responsibility.
"Our Sailors performed beyond expectations. P-3s have
always been tasked with anything and everything. Our
team answered the call with true professionalism and
skill," said Naylor.
After an 18-hour airlift or a few days voyage in a P-3C,
the Mad Foxes of VP-5 arrived home last week to the
newly opened NAS Jacksonville Hangar 511.

14 JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, June 18, 2009


Protect yourself from identity theft


By Lt.j.g. Roni Beasley
Judge Advocate General Corps


Imagine being deployed for a year.
During your deployment your
sole focus is your mission, leav-
ing little time to ponder anything
else. Then, the day finally arrives
and you are scheduled to return
home. Upon your return you are noti-
fied that your home is in foreclosure,
your Honda Accord has been repos-
sessed and you owe Citibank $10,000
on an outstanding credit card along
with attorney's fees from the lawsuit
in which a judgment was entered
against you.
This scenario is very hard for any-
one to digest. Now, just imagine hav-
ing to digest it all knowing that you
have never owned a home, a Honda
Accord or a Citibank credit card.
Your new reality is that you are a vic-
tim of identity theft.
Identity theft occurs when some-
one uses your name, social security
number, credit card number or other
personal information without your
permission to obtain credit or com-
mit fraud. According to the Federal
Trade Commission (FTC), at least 9
million Americans have their identi-
ties stolen each year.
Unfortunately, military members
are more susceptible to identity theft
than members of the general public.
For example, it is easier for someone
to become privy to a service member's
social security number and other iden-


tifying information. For years the mil-
itary has used social security numbers
as personal identifiers, printing the
number on military and dependant
I.D. cards. Additionally, service mem-
bers are often deployed for extended
periods of time, making it difficult to
closely monitor their credit.
However, the Department of
Defense (DOD) is taking measures
to minimize the risk of identity
theft against service members. For
instance, a plan has been put into
play to reissue all military I.D. cards
with only the last four digits of the
social security number printed on the
I.D. Additionally, DOD has partnered
with the FTC to launch The Military
Sentinel (http://www.ftc.gov/senti-
nel/military/). This online complaint
system allows military members and
DOD civilian employees to report
identity theft and other consumer
frauds directly to the FTC.
Identity theft can cost a victim a lot
of time and money, but if you are a
service member having your identity
stolen could cost you your security
clearance or even your job. In order to
avoid security clearance issues, care-
ful steps can be taken to ensure that
your credit and identity do not become
compromised. First, keep a close
watch on your credit history. Make
sure you take advantage of services
that offer yearly free credit reports
such as, www.annualcreditreport.
com. This is an online service that
provides you with credit reports from


Experian, Tran Union and Equifax.
Second, if you are deploying or are
an active duty service member who
moves around a lot, place an active
duty alert on your credit report. An
active duty alert is effective for one
year and requires creditors to go the
extra mile to verify your identity
before granting credit in your name.
This alert can be obtained by contact-
ing any of the three credit reporting
agencies or other identity protection
services such as TrustedID, Lifelock,
and IdentityGuard.
Finally, be cognizant of everyone
around you and to whom you disclose
your personal information. When I
say disclose, I don't just mean who
you knowingly disclose information
to, also make sure that the persons)
or entities you are disclosing informa-
tion to are in fact creditable.
Be careful and check everything you
dispose of and, pay careful attention
not to discard anything with iden-
tifying information. Hence, if you
don't currently own a shredder now
is as good a time to invest because
everything from pre-approved credit
cards to bank statements should be
shredded before being tossed into the
dumpster.

Fashion-forward sun protection


How to be stylish while reducing skin cancer risks


From M.D. Anderson Communications Dept.

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and The
University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer
Center now offers insight into how some of
today's hottest fashion trends can offer
a tremendous amount of sun protection
without leaving you feeling like a well-
greased baking pan.
When it comes to sun protection, sun-
screen always has been high on the sun
protection radar. It still is but Susan Y. "
Chon, M.D., assistant professor in M. D.
Anderson's Department of Dermatology,
explains how the hottest trends from the spring/summer
2009 runway shows also can provide skin cancer preven-
tion and maximize clothing's sun protection power.
Sunglasses
The most fabulous, current sunglass styles are those
with extra-large frames that help protect the delicate skin
around the eyes from skin cancer and aging. Sunglasses
also should have broad ultraviolet (UV) protection that
absorbs at least 99 percent of UV rays for maximum can-
cer prevention benefits.
Leggings
Leggings have now become a runway staple and can go
under dresses and tunics even in hot weather because they
aren't as heavy as pants. They are a great way to defend
legs from UVA and UVB rays while running errands or at
an outdoor barbeque.
"Women have a tendency to develop skin cancer on their
legs at a much higher rate than men," Chon said. "This is
probably due to more sun exposure over time from wear-
ing bathing suits, shorts and skirts."
Long Dresses
Another leg-saving fashion trend that is extremely pop-
ular on the runways for spring/summer 2009 is the move
from "mini" to maxii." Long dresses are everywhere, and
are being worn for day and night.
Hats
Modern, wide-brimmed sun hats shield the face, neck,
ears and chest from the sun. This season on the runway,
the bigger the brim, the better!
Sun hats also should be tightly woven. If the hat of
choice is straw, be sure the sun isn't peeking through by
holding the hat over the ground and looking at the shadow
it casts. If the shadow is speckled with light, think about
investing in a new one.
Tunic Tops
Pretty, "boho" style beach cover-ups with long sleeves
are a great way to save a person's skin from being over
exposed in a teeny-bikini. Tunic tops are not only perfect
on the beach but also can transition from day to night
when worn with the right accessories, like chunky brace-
lets, necklaces and belts!
"When you're at the beach, any extra help you can get
is great," Chon said. "Continue to wear sunscreen, but an
additional cover-up is essential, especially anything that
has long sleeves."
Scarves
Summery shawls and scarves in lightweight fabrics are
back again this season! Starlets everywhere are wearing
them, and they keep often forgotten spots, such as the
back of the neck and delicate decolletage, safe from harm.
Even men can get in on this skin-saving trend.
"Women are usually pretty good about applying sun-
screen to their face, but generally forget their necks and
the 'v' of their chests," Chon said. "A light scarf is a great
way to cover neglected skin that gets a lot of sun exposure
during summer months."
One Piece Bathing Suits
While bathing suits are not known for providing much
in the way of coverage, the new trend of one-piece bath-
ing suits gives skin on the stomach an extra layer of
protection. One-piece suits also provide more coverage of
the lower back, an area often missed while applying sun-
screen.
Maximize clothing's sun protection power
"There are certain colors and fabrics that will offer more
protection than others," Chon said.
ooo


To maximize clothing's skin cancer prevention powers,
wear tightly woven, dark-colored fabrics. A simple way to
test a tee's UV level is to hold it up to a light bulb. If the
light is visible through the shirt, it probably isn't offering
the maximum protection.
"You don't need to wear special UPF
clothing to get extra protection, just wear
a sunscreen with SPF15 or higher under
layers," Chon said. "It is absolutely pos-
sible to be fashion conscious and protect
yourself from the sun. The trends on the
runway this year offer more coverage. We
love that!"
No matter what you wear, it's impor-
tant to always apply sunscreen and seek shade whenever
possible. However, for the days that you do choose to have
fun in the sun, you can look your best and play it safe by
wearing sun-protective clothing. Anyone feel like shop-
ping?

'Dusty Dogs' deliver multi-mission


support to Carrier Strike Group


10


By Lt. j.g. Robert Knoerser
HS-7 Public Affairs Officer
The "Dusty Dogs"
of HS-7 recently
returned from a
month of flight operations
while embarked on USS
Harry S. Truman (CVN 75).
The squadron rehearsed
nearly every mission in
its repertoire to support
Carrier Air Wing 3 during
Tailored Ships Training
Availability (TSTA) opera-
tions off the East coast.
HS-7 began its training
period with several flights
in support of the Naval
Special Warfare (NSW)
community. Two crews, led
by Lt. Cmdr. Brian Bartlett
and Lt. Cmdr. Jason Young
practiced fast rope inser-
tions with NSW Group 2
at Naval Base Little Creek,
Va. During the evolution,
the flight crews held the
helicopters in a high hover
while the NSW personnel
roped to the ground.
The Dusty Dogs used
their fast roping skills the
following evening, deliver-
ing members of the NSW
TraDet to the deck of the
USNS Arctic during a heli-
copter visit, board, search
and seizure exercise.
HS-7 flight crews also
tested the weapons sys-
tems of their HH-60H heli-
copters, including firing
their M-240 and GAU-16
machine guns at targets on
the ground and at sea.
Pilots honed their profi-
ciency using the helicop-
ter's forward-looking infra-
red and laser designator
against special targets on

The training culminated

target for the scenario was

the stack of the old ship and
achieved pinpoint accuracy
on each shot.

2008






Water






Quality






Report

From NAVFAC SE Public Works Department


The Naval Facilities Engineering Command South-
east (NAVFAC SE), Public Works Department
(PWD), as the NAS Jacksonville water utility
service provider, is pleased to provide the 2008 Water
Quality Report. PWD provides a safe and dependable
supply of drinking water through two deep wells that
draw from the Floridan aquifer. In 2008, the Department
of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water
Assessment that identified no potential sources of con-
tamination near our wells. Assessment results are on the
DEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program
Web site at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.
Treatment of the water supply includes aeration for odor
control and chlorination for disinfection. In 2003, NAS
Jax started receiving potable water from JEA, therefore,
some of the data in this report is from JEA testing.
PWD routinely monitors for contaminants in NAS
Jax's drinking water according to federal and state laws
and regulations. Except as indicated, the following table
shows monitoring results from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2008.
As approved by U. S. Environmental Protection Agency
(USEPA), the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection reduced monitoring requirements for certain
contaminants to less than once per year because concen-
trations of these contaminants are not expected to signifi-
cantly vary from year to year. Therefore some of the data
is more than one year old.
Below are the definitions of terms and abbreviations
used in the report:
Action Level (AL) the concentration of a contaminant
which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other require-
ments which a water system must follow.
Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) The highest
level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water.
MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the
best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) is the
level of a contaminant in drinking water below which
there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLG
allows for a margin of safety.
Maximum Residual Disinfection Level (MRDL) The
highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water.
There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfec-
tant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG)
- The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which
there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do
not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
microbial contaminants
Non-Detects (ND) laboratory analysis indicates that
the constituent is not present.
Not Applicable (N/A) No value limit or restriction
has been applied to this particular parameter.
Parts per billion (ppb) one part per billion corre-
sponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in
$10,000,000.
Parts per million (ppm) one part per million cor-
responds to one minute in two years or a single penny in
$10,000.
Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) picocuries per liter is a
measure of radioactivity in water.
Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in
the environment and are used as an indicator that other,
potentially harmful bacteria may be present. Coliforms
were found in more samples than allowed during the
months of May and September 2008 and this was a warn-
ing of potential problems. Follow-up sampling confirmed
that no problems existed in the NAS Jax water supply.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and
bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reser-
voirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface
of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally
occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive mate-
rial, and can pick up substances resulting from the pres-
ence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water
include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacte-
ria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals,
which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban
stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater dis-
charges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a
variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater
runoff, and residential uses.
ooo


TEST RESULTS TABLE NAS JACKSONVILLE
Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants and inorganic contaminants are the highest detected level at any sampling
point, depending on the sampling frequency. The water received from JEA had minute detections of radiological parameters, SOCs and
inorganic contaminants, all below maximum contaminant levels, as indicated below.

(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic
and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can
also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-
occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and
mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the
Environmental Protection Agency prescribes regulations
which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water
provided by public water systems. FDA regulations estab-
lish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must
provide the same protection for public health.
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious
health problems, especially for pregnant women and
young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from
materials and components associated with service lines
and home plumbing. NAVFAC SE is responsible for pro-
viding high quality drinking water, but cannot control
the variety of materials used in plumbing components.
When your water has been sitting for several hours, you
can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing


your tap for 30 seconds to two minutes before using water
for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in
your water, you may wish to have your water tested.
Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods,
and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available
from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.
epa. gov/safewater/lead.
All drinking water, including bottled water, may rea-
sonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of
some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does
not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health
risk. More information about contaminants and potential
health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA Safe
Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
MCLs are set at very stringent levels: to understand
the possible health effects described for many regulated
contaminants, a person would have to drink two liters of
water every day at the MCL for a lifetime to have a one-
in-a-million chance of having the described health effect.
For more information, NAS Jax housing residents
should contact the housing office and organizational per-
sonnel should contact their safety or environmental office.
