10, headquartered at NAS
Jacksonville, launched
their four high-speed
patrol boats in the St..
Johns River June 19 and
set course for NS Mayport
to practice anti-terrorism
and force protection (AT/
FP) skills --in preparation
for their upcoming Unit

Assessment (ULTRA)
inspection.
"The goal of ULTRA is to
assess the squadron's .abil-
ity to effectively train itself
and to perform in numer-
ous warfare areas,'? said
Lt. Shane Bosse, officer in
charge of MSRON 10 Boat


Division 102.
"Prior to next week's
inspection, we're perform-
ing basic training with our
boat teams because we've
had a big influx of new per-
sonnel. This allows us to
coordinate as. a full squad-
ron, rather than isolated,
weekend reserve detach-
ments."
MSRON 10 Chief Staff
Officer Lt. Cmdr. Zach
Staples explained, "We're
treating Naval Station
Mayport as if it were a for-
eign port. We'll set up a
base camp with entry con-
trol points and secure the
harbor. We'll also establish
our communications, sen-
sors and surveillance mod-
ules. We can also provide
high-value asset security,
embarked security protec-
tion for vessels unable to
provide their own security,


and perimeter security and
force protection."
Besides patrolling for
waterborne threat scenarios
in the ship basin, MSRON
10 boat crews will practice
their navigation and gen-
eral boat-handling skills in
a coastal environment.
CWO.4 Stephen 'Lee,
assistant officer in charge
of MSRON 10 Boat Division
101, added that squadron
personnel attended Camp
Blanding Joint Training
Center in Starke, Fla. for
small arms and crew-served
weapons training.
"A live-fire exercise gives
our people the chance to get
the real feel of their weap-
ons so, that they will know
how to properly operate
them in an AT/FP situa-
tion."

VP-10 deploys to Middle East and Africa


By Lt. j.g. on Moore
VP-10 Public Affairs Officer


Cmdr. James Robinson, the
73rd commanding offi-
cer of VP-10, led the "Red
Lancers" on their final deploy-
ment from NAS Brunswick,
Maine - relieving the "Fighting
Tigers" of VP-8 June 3 in their
dual site deployment to Qatar
and Djibouti.
While deployed, VP-10 will
conduct missions in support
of Operation Iraqi Freedom,
Operation Enduring Freedom,
Maritime Security Operations
and anti-piracy missions to pro-
tect America's maritime inter-
ests in the Arabian Gulf, Gulf of


Oman, the Arabian Sea and the
Gulf of Aden.
The Red Lancers will not be
working alone. While overseas,
they will be part of several multi-
national task forces that include
the navies and air forces of Japan,
Germany, France, Spain and
England.
The Red Lancers have been
instrumental in the welcom-
ing of the Japanese Maritime
Self Defense Force (JMSDF) to
Djibouti as they embark on their
first forward deployment in over
60 years. VP-10 has been ready
and willing to assist the Japanese
from day one in order to ensure
their deployment is a success.


Having the JMSDF on the team
is a force multiplier.
While forward deployed, the
Red Lancers of VP-10 will be
ambassadors of the United States


in order to strengthen relations
with their host countries. Always
looking to lend a helping hand, a
number of community relations
projects will be conducted by the
Red Lancers.
Several members of the squad-
ron have already volunteered at
local orphanages and participated
in teaching English to the local
community.
VP-10 will ndt only donate their
time but will also hold fundrais-
ers for the local charities. Much
needed basic necessities, which
many in the U.S. take for granted,
are scarce in regions surrounding
their forward deployed sites.
While the Red Lancers will


maintain a strong focus on mis-
sion accomplishment during the
next six months, they will also
look forward to the day they are
reunited with their families and
loved ones.
To make life even more interest-
ing, VP-10 is conducting a home
port change to NAS Jacksonville
to coincide with the conclusion of
this deployment. Though very dif-
-ferent from the northern climate
of Maine, Jacksonville beckons
with open arms.
The Red Lancers look forward
to continuing their tradition
of hard work and excellence in
and are eager to set the pace in
Jacksonville in the near future.


The international face



of maritime patrol


By Lt. Nick Rueda
VP-10
The P-3 Orion has a long history as a
reliable, accomplished aircraft with
multiple missions within its capa-
bilities. This ability is a key reason why
so many nations throughout the world
utilize the P-3 as their primary air asset
with regards to their maritime patrol
force.
This confidence in an aircraft that has
proven itself decade after decade is visible
in the current war to combat piracy off the
coast of the Horn of Africa.
Four nations - the United States,
Germany, Spain and Japan,- have put their
faith in the P-3 Orion to help them- in this
endeavor. Each nation currently oper-
ates their aircraft out of Djibouti, Africa.
The U.S. side of the base is called "Camp
Lemonier."
Once a sleepy 97-acre post located on the
western edge of the Horn of Africa, Camp
Lemonier is now a 500-acre base that has
become an essential tool supporting air-
craft conducting anti-piracy operations in
the region.
The coalition of nations operating P-3s
are in constant contact with each other in


order to optimize all of their missions in
this crucial war against this new breed of
terrorists.
A steady flow of information between the
allied nations has proven invaluable, while
ensuring that all parties are operating
with all available tools.
On June 10, the P-3 crews took time to
conduct a different type of mission, one to
commemorate this historic occasion of hav-
ing the aforementioned nations all working
side by side in this coalition against piracy.
VP-10 coordinated the aircraft and per-
sonnel from the four different countries
and quickly learned this was no small
task. The challenges of staging aircraft,
coordinating ramp space and personnel
were further put to the test by scheduling
and language constraints, and the extreme
heat of North-East Africa.
These challenges are similar to those
faced every day by the support staffs and
aircrews from these four nations, defend-
ing their common national interests so far
from home.
The photo-op was representative of the
spirit of cooperation and friendship shared
by these nations, united against the threat
of international terrorism and piracy.

take environmental


journey on base


By Clark Pierce
Editor
Representatives of the
Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection (FDEP), City of
Jacksonville Environmental
and Compliance
Department, and the
St. Johns River Water
Management District
(SJRWMD) were briefed on
the station's conservation,
energy reduction, pollution-
prevention and recycling
programs June 18 by NAS
*Jax Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. and
NAS Jax Environmental
Director Kevin Gartland.
Driving a solar-electric,
low-speed vehicle, Gartland
and Scorby met the party,
at the main gate and trans-
ported them to Hangar 511
where NAVFAC Southeast
Engineer Thom Tryon
pointed out environmental
and energy saving design
features. With P-3C Orion
aircraft turning up their
engines on the nearby ramp,
David Miracle of SJRWMD
asked about, noise and land-
,use issues.
Scorby replied, "Encroach-
'ment protection is a major
-issue with airports and
'military installations
across America. What NAS
Jacksonville has accom-
plished in partnership with
local government, citizens
groups and regulatory
agencies is now being used
as a model by the Florida
Building Commission to add
more 'effective noise abate-
ment guidelines to state
building codes."
Gartland added, "We live
and work in our communi-
ties like everyone else - so
we have a stake in proac-


tively resolving encroach-
ment issues, too."
Derek Igour, depu-
ty director of the City's
Environmental and
Compliance Department,
appreciated his ifivitation
to tour NAS Jacksonville.
"This is a good opportunity
to learn about the Navy's
commitment to environ-
mental excellence. I'm
impressed that their two
new hangars are in the
process of being LEED
(Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design)
certified according to the
Green Building Rating
System."
Miracle, who previously
visited the station during
the 2008 air show, said,
'"Our agency regulates
storm water and consump-
tive-use permitting. I find
the professionals here on
base to be very responsive
to the environmental needs
of the community. It's good
to see they used pervious
pavement and turf blocks
in the parking areas of the
new hangars to lessen the
impact of'storm water run-
off."
FDEP Wastewater Mana-
ger Khalid Al-Nahdy was
impressed with the station's
green spaces and overall
cleanliness. "It appears that
Captain Scorby runs a very
tight ship," said Al-Nahdy.
"I also find the interpretive
center to be very interesting
and a great teaching tool for
our community."

Special duty assignment

pay revisions start July 26

By MC1(AW) LaTunya Howard
Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs,

N AVADMIN 156/09, announces revisions in special
duty assignment pay (SDAP), which take effect
July 26.
The revisions adjust SDAP levels for active and Reserve
component full-time support (FTS) Sailors, but the major-
ity of SDAP pay remains unchanged from 2008.
"We typically release a new SDAP plan once per year,"
said Jeri Busch, the head of the military pay and com-
pensation policy branch for the chief of naval personnel.
"Out of 166 line items, we reduced 36 single-level and 21
multilevel, with seven going to zero and 102 remaining
unchanged," said Busch.
Approximately 26,500 Sailors receive SDAP each month,
and of these, 6,300 are affected by this message. Adjusted
pay rates will be reflected in the August pay cycle, said
Busch.
Sailors whose SDAP will be eliminated will receive half
of their previous SDAP entitlement for 12 months, or until
the Sailor completes the tour, whichever comes first. -
he SDAP program is an incentive for Sailors to serve-in
designated billets that are considered extremely difficult
or entail arduous duty. Program levels change t9 reflect
the current environment associated with each billet.
Commands holding SDAP billets are required to com-
plete an annual recertification by Aug. 31. Guidance for
this process can be found in NAVADMIN 168/09.

By Sue Brink
NAVFAC Soulheast Public Affairs Officer


Naval Facilities Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast Attorney Richardl
Barfield deployed May 31 to Iraq as an"
Individual Augmentee (LA) for the next eight months.,
He will serve as an administrative law attorney at
Multi-National Force Iraq (MNF-T).
"This is my eighth deployment, beginning when 1
was an active duty Marine and now as a civilian," said&
Barfield.
Barfield exemplifies Navy Ethos with his commit-:
ment to serving this great country. Civilians and
active-duty members alike hold core values of honor,:
courage and commitment. Individual Augmentees
are Sailors and civilians who are filling individual
billet requirements for various combat commanders,
dedicated individuals provide key and critical skills to
America's security.
Barfield will provide legal advice on regulatory
.interpretation, review of military airlift requests,
coordinate Congressional testimonial responses, over-
see the rewards program and advise on Freedom of
Information Act and Privacy Act issues. He will be the
action officer for issues pertaining to environmental
law and personnel law. In addition, he will advise the
command on all investigations.
He previously was in charge of a legal office in the
Marines in the first Gulf War and he had been the
chairman of the international and operational law
department at the Army JAG School.
A major part of Barfield's job will stem from the
Security Agreement Secretariat under the charge
of the U.S. Army Major General. In the presence'
of Senior Government of Iraq (Gol) Ministers and'
Officers, at the negotiating table, Barfield will review
and revise all binding bi-lateral agreements generated:
by the Security Agreement Secretariat, submit legal

Barfield will likely serve as legal counsel to nine
of the 12 joint subcommittees (JSC) responsible for
the security agreement implementation. The nine
JSC include: Agreed Facilities and Area: Claims'
Entry/Exit; Import/Export; Surveillance and Airspace
control; Frequency Management: Green Zone transi-
tion; Vehicle. Vessels and Movement; and Transfer of
Provincial Security.
The approximately 14 hour days, sevbn day work

the Navy has suspended the SRB program
for the remainder of the fiscal: year.
SRB requests received by Navy Personnel
Command-811 prior to the release of
White NAVADMIN 176/09 through the Officer
War Personnel Infornmation System will still be
pro- processed. Less than 685 Sailors remain

"I want to assure
Sailors that the SRB

Warmowski memorial ride July 12

From staff

Join Team Navy Jax cycling team, the North Florida
Bicycle Club, family and friends on July 12 at 8 a.m.
in celebrating the life of Lt. Cmdr. Jim Warrnowski,
a former NAS Jax officer who was tragically struck and
killed by an intoxicated driver July 14, 2002.
Warmowski was riding his bicycle oni U.S. 17, south of
Green Cove Springs, training for a triathlon.
The 22.4-mile memorial ride will have a leisurely pace,
followed by 42- or 34-mile options after the memorial.
The ride will start at the Fleming Island Winn Dixie
parking lot on CR 220 and head south 11 miles to the spot
where he lost his life. In 2008, about 300 bicyclists partici-
pated to make the motoring public aware of the existence
of bicyclists and to implore folks to "share the road."
An NAS Jax chaplain will deliver inspirational words,
Taps will be played by a Navy Band Southeast bugler, and
a wreath will be placed atthe memorial marker.

INSTRUCTORS: Local career academy sends teachers to NAS Jax tower


From Page 1

NAS Jax could come up with an
activity that incorporates prin-
ciples of physics and aerodynam-
ics, principles of leadership and
teamwork, along with written
communication skills. So the stu-
dent may sit down and do one
activity that incorporates three
or four subject areas all wrapped
around aviation. That's the cool
outcome of this program," Wirth
continued.
"The instructors are from a
career academy which is a school
within a school designed to teach
a career theme to prepare kids
for college and careers simultane-
ot sly."
The trio spent their time work-
ing side-by-side with Navy air
traffic controllers in the control
tower and radar room to get a
glimpse of how the controllers
handle the wide variety of air-
craft going in and out of the sta-
tion each day.
"It's a great experience because
this is real life. We talk about it
in the classroom and read books,
but now we have instructors who
can apply what Navy men and
women are doing here every day
with what we're trying to teach
teenagers about the jobs they
may be doing in the future," stat-
ed Charlie Rutledge, an instruc-
tor with the Aviation Career
Academy at Frank H. Peterson
Academies of Technology. "It's
very exciting to be here both on
a professional level and personal
level. My dad was stationed here
in the 1960s and I spent quite a
bit of time here growing up. It's

good to be back."
The externship program has
four primary goals:
* Professional development that
provides hands-on experience in a
contemporary workplace environ-
ment. The externship increases
teachers' awareness of industry
needs and requirements. Teachers
-will be educated about the types
of skills necessary for the work-
place.
* Bridging the gap between the
workplace and the classroom is


accomplished with active busi-
ness involvement. Creative work-
place experience allows educators
to apply real-life career situations
to classroom curriculum, giving
students up-to-date information
to relate what they learn to work-
place applications.
* Development of curricula that
have the potential to change the
way that students think and learn
about the world beyond their
classroom walls. Teachers gain
exposure to the workplace, devel-


op connections with professionals
in fields related to their subject
areas, and incorporate new infor-
mation into their classes.
* Build .strong relationships
between education and business.
The relationships that teachers
build with businesses through
their externships can reap bene-
fits for students in the form of site
tours, collaborations with compa-
ny representatives ;on class proj-
ects, and even work experiences
for the students themselves.

John Slate, an instructor with
Frank H. Peterson Academies of
Technology, talks with AC1(AW)
Richard Price about how many air-
craft he monitors each day at the
NAS Jax Air Operations Control
Tower.
By hosting the group, the air
traffic controllers also gain the
benefit of realizing they are help-
ing the future generation work-
force.
"It's a great deal for us because
we get a chance to influence the
people who are molding the next
generation of air traffic control-
lers. We help them go back and
teach the students what they have
learned. Eventually, we may see
some of these students working
with us," said ACC(AW/SW) Karl
Vliet of NAS Jax Air Operations
Department, who coordinated the
visit.
Overall, it's a win-win situation
for the Navy and the school. "The
chamber is grateful to the Navy
in so many ways and this is just
one small example of what a great
partner the Navy is in helping us
to elevate the education gain here
in the region," said Wirth.

CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


By Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top


O n December 25, 1776, the sick,
starved and tattered Continental
Army, led by General George
Washington crossed the Delaware River.
After nearly being wiped out completely
at the battle of Long Island, the depleted
Americans had withdrawn to Valley Forge
to pull themselves together. It was cold,
clothing and food was scarce,
disease was rampant, and it
looked unlikely that the inex-
perienced Americans could
stop the might of the British
forces.
It was about these conditions
that Thomas Paine wrote, .
"These are the times that try
men's souls. The summer sol-
dier and the sunshine patriot
will, in this crisis, shrink from
the service of their country; but
he that stands now deserves Chaplain (L
the love and thanks of man and woman."
As the soldiers crossed the river and
moved into New Jersey, the many shoeless
soldiers left a trail of blood in the snow.
The men were exhausted, sick, and many
of their enlistments were ending without
any prospect of being paid. Despite this,
they remained committed to the cause of
freedom.
On Christmas day and in the weeks to
follow, the Continental Army attacked
and defeated the British at Trenton and
Princeton. The determination of these men
to prevail despite the overwhelming dif-
ficulties changed the momentum of the
war and eventually led to victory and the
establishment of the United States.
Decades later, the fledgling nation, still
struggling to develop democracy, found
itself in a similarly precarious situation.
In 1812, the U.S. again faced war with the
powerful British forces. By September of
,1814, the British had pillaged Washington
D.C. and burned the White House and the
Capitol building, sending the U.S. govern-
ment into exile. The British navy moved to


t.


capture the harbor at Baltimore and seal
the fate of the United States. All through
the night of September 13, the Royal navy
pounded Fort McHenry, the last defense of
the harbor.
From a distant ship, Francis Scott Key
watched the brutal assault, sure that no
one could survive such a bombardment.
To the surprise of all, when the morn-
ing came, "Old Glory" still waved proudly
above the fort. The soldiers
inside gave such a fight that
the British fleet withdrew. Key
was so inspired by the valor
he witnessed, he wrote a poem
... that later became our national
anthem.
Throughout the decades
of this nation's history, this
'1 story has played out again
and again. When opposition
arose and there appeared no
-' hope in sight, dedicated men
J) ustin Top and women rose and met
the challenge head on. During the Great
Depression, throughout the World Wars
and the Cold War, and on September 11
and in its aftermath, Americans have given
their all for "life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness."
This is the true spirit of America. When
times get tough and the odds seem to be
stacked against us, we must remember the
examples of those who made this Fourth
of July holiday possible. As you see the
flag being raised, as you hear our nation-
al anthem, and as you see the "rocket's
red glare," remember what it all stands
for. Then think of your own life and the
difficulties you are facing, whether they
are financial troubles, or problems in your
family or relationships. Whatever they
may be, remember that this country exists
because men and women had the courage
to fight, even when they had little hope
of success. Every time you put your hand
over your heart or salute, recommit in your
heart and mind to fight for what is right in
your own life, no matter how hard it may
seem.

.VFC-12 flies F/A-18 Hornets with an
adversary blue camouflage paint scheme
to simulate aggressor aircraft when they
fly missions in support of exercises. ATAC
flies aggressor missions with radar jam-
ming equipment as well as towing drones
for the ship to shoot down.
"For us, COMTUEX is a two-part mis-


sion. The first part is cargo and high prior-
ity requisitions. These are things that the
ship and squadrons need to perform their
missions. We transport gear and parts for
the aircraft, carrier and handle logistics
for the ship," said Lt. j.g. Mike Pearne of
VRC-40.
"We also transport DVs to the carrier.
This allows the Navy to take authorized
civilians out to the ship and show them
how their tax dollars are being spent, as
well as showing them how a carrier oper-
ates while on deployment," he continued.
"COMTUEX is a test for everyone on the
carrier including squadron personnel, deck
handlers and all other crewmembers."
COMTUEX is the first major exercise
involving the entire strike group in prepa-
ration for the upcoming deployment later
this year.
The extensive exercise prepares the car-
rier, air wing and other units in the battle
group to function as one fighting force.

Know the rules for official use of government vehicles


By Cmdr. Chuck Lewis
NAS Jacksonville Public Works Officer
What does 'For Official
Use Only' mean? The
definition is: The use of
all Navy owned and controlled
vehicles shall be restricted
to official purposes only. That
means that a person must per-
form travel in their official capac-
ity. This precludes the use of
government vehicles for personal
use. The purpose of the trip must
be related to the performance of
official duties or in connection
with activities conducted under
official authorization.
Many people do not realize that
official use of government vehicles
is not just a regulation or a policy
- it is public law.
Penalties for willfully using,
or authorizing the use of, a gov-
ernment-owned or leased motor
vehicle for other than official pur-
poses, are stipulated in U.S. Code
31, Section 1349. Adverse person-
nel actions, (Public Law 97-258,
Sep 13, 1982) states: "An officer
or employee who willfully uses or
authorizes the use of a passenger
motor vehicle or aircraft owned
or leased by the United States


Government or otherwise violates
Section 1349 shall be suspended
without pay by the head of the
agency. The officer or employee
shall be suspended for at least
one month and when circum-
stances warrant, for a longer peri-
od or summarily removed from
office." ("Passenger motor vehicle"
relative to illegal use, has been
interpreted to mean all types of
automotive vehicles.)
Some examples of misuse of
a government vehicle include
transporting officers or employ-
ees of the government between
their residences and places of


duty/employment. It also means
that we do not have the author-
ity to take a vehicle to lunch, go
through drive through at fast food
eateries or run to the store -
unless purchasing official goods
for the Navy.
Do you know what the "Permis-
sible Operating Distance" (POD)
of a government vehicle is? A one-
way distance of 100 miles has
been selected as a guide to base
permissible operating distanc-
es for motor vehicles. The POD
established for an activity should
be sufficient to support normal
operations. Based on installation


and special conveyance (rent-
al vehicles) to official purposes
including transportation to anco
from duty sites, lodgings, din-
ing facilities, drugstores, barber
shops, places of worship, cleaning
establishments, and similar places
required for the traveler's subsis-
N M tence, health or comfort. However,
Navy regulations state the first
resource of vehicles used in a TDY/
TAD status shall be a commercial
short-term rental vehicle autho-
rized on official TDY/TAD orders.
Most infractions of 'For Official
Photobystaff Use Only' vehicles are not
deliberate. Make sure your co-
experience, a POD shall be estab- workers/employees are aware of
lished that adequately supports how government vehicles may
the installation's motor vehicle be used. Most reports of unoffi-
transportation requirements. For cial use of a government vehicle

NAVSUP Manual, Volume 5, Part government. The reports come in
E. The 100-mile guide shall not be the form of telephone calls, DOD

zation and justification signed by inquiries. Remember, you may be

Protect family from recreational water illnesses


Think before leaping

into the swimming pool

From CDC Public Affairs

T he skies are mostly blue and hot, steamy sum-
mer days have returned. It's time to break out the
- swimsuits, lather on the sunscreen and head to the
closest pool. Swimming and other water-related activi-
-ties such as water skiing and boating are excellent ways
t engage in physical activity.
-However, it is important to follow basic guidelines to
prevent recreational water illnesses (RWI) that are spread
by swallowing, breathing in the vapors of, or having con-
Lct with contaminated water.
-Although most water is not contaminated with germs
Miat cause illness, public swimming pools, water parks,
Mountains, lakes, rivers and other .bodies of water are
potential sources that can spread germs that cause RWI.
-'The most common RWI is diarrhea, and it is often
caused by germs such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia,


Norovirus, Shigella, and E. coli. Other common RWI
include skin, ear, respiratory, eye, and wound infections.
Anyone can get RWI, however,, children, pregnant
women and people with weakened immune systems are
most at risk.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
in Atlanta, Ga. reports that since the mid-1980s, there
has been a steady increase in outbreaks of diarrhea illness
linked to recreational water with the chlorine-resistant
parasite Cryptosporidium. This germ accounts for over
two-thirds of all pool-associated diarrhea outbreaks.
There are simple steps the public, aquatics staff and
public health officials can take to help keep germs out of
recreational water.
For example, some people mistakenly believe that chlo-
rine immediately kills germs in pools. This misconception
might lead people to do risky things, like swimming while
ill with diarrhea. CDC recommends that pool users follow
the "six steps for healthy swimming" to stop germs from
getting into recreational water and causing illness:
(1) Don't swim when you have diarrhea, (2) Don't swal-
low pool water. (3) Shower with soap before swimming
and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing
diapers. (4) Take your kids on bathroom breaks or check


diapers often. (5) Change diapers in the bathroom or dia-
per-changing area and not at poolside. (6) Wash your chil-
dren thoroughly (especially the rear end) with soap. and
water before they go swimming.
When swimming in natural waters, such as lakes, rivers
and oceans, avoid swimming after a heavy rain or near
storm drains. Be aware of signs of pollution 'that may indi-
cate the presence of disease-causing bacteria.
For more information on the CDC Healthy Swimming
Program, including RWI prevention, call 1-800-CDC-INFO
or visit www.cdc.gov/healthyswimming.

Mushing my way to fond memories


By Lt. Cmdr. Mike Saling
Navy Operational Support
Center Jacksonville
During conversations
with members of the
Navy Operational
Support Center (NOSC)
staff in late February, I
found myself repeating a
common question. "I know
that at some point next
week I will be .freezing
cold wondering why I ever
wanted to go dog sledding
and cross-country skiing in
Ely (e-lee), Minnesota?""
The answer turned out to
be that my eight days with
Outward Bound Wilderness
was an incredible experi-
ence.
Returning from Afghan-
istan in July 2008, I
reported aboard NOSC
Jacksonville in August
and settled into the office
-routine. Then, the OEF/
OIF Veterans 2009 Course
Offerings e-mail hit my
aesk offering a variety of
"Outward Bound outdoor
expeditions with the possi-
bility of an all-expense paid
high-adventure experience
that was sure to get the
adrenaline pumping.
The program is funded
by a $3.5M grant from the
Sierra Club which covers
all costs to include lodg-
ing, food, equipment, staff
instruction, and state-side
roundtrip transportation
to and from the expedi-
tion site. It is open to any
U.S. military service mem-
ber (active duty, retired,
honorably discharged,
National Guard, or Reserve
Component) who deployed
into a combat zone in
support of Operation
:Enduring Freedom (OEF
- Afghanistan) and/or
Operation Iraqi Freedom
(OIF - Southwest Asia).
KI submitted my appli-"
,ation and chose the dog
,sledding/cross-country ski-
jing expedition as my first
choice since those were two
activities which I had never
before experienced. As an
Eagle Scout, I have enjoyed
a variety of challenging
camping experiences, but
this one proved to be one
of the most extreme experi-
ences I have ever had.
Once my application and
medical screening were
complete and I was selected
for. the program, I submit-
ted my leave papers and
made, my travel arrange-
ments. I packed my cold
weather gear that had kept
ane warm in Afghanistan
"nd headed north.
Ely, Minn. is a popular
destination during the sum-
mer months as the entry

cross-country skiing in the
winter. It was across this
terrain that my team and I
would spend six cold nights
and seven long days travel-
ling over 32 miles of hills
and lakes with 11 dogs, two
sleds, and several bottles of
ibuprofen.
In our first night at
base camp, we met our
new teammates and were
divided into two six-per-
son teams that were each
led by two Outward Bound
instructors. Backpacks,
sleeping bags, outerwear,
heavy boots, cross-country
skis and other miscella-
neous gear was issued while
the instructors checked
over our personal items to
minimize the weight we
would be carrying. A quick
introduction to cross-coun-
try skiing techniques on the
lake during sunset exposed
all of us to the harsh reality
that.it was absolutely frigid
in Minnesota in March and
' we were in for a long week.
With the instructors hav-
ing previously demonstrat-
ed the Houdini-like efforts
required to remove outer-
wear while simultaneously
enclosing ourselves inside
of two sleeping bags, they
had us sleep on the outside
porch in an effort to accli-
mate us to the cold weath-
er sleeping environment
we would get to enjoy for
the rest of the week on the.
trail.
A brutal reality set in
that evening as the tem-
peratures dipped to nega-
tive 24 degrees Fahrenheit
and I woke to find my pants
frozen stiff lying next to my
sleeping bag. It was going
to be a long week.
That first morning we
secured gear to the dog

sled operating lessons, har-
nessed the dogs, and with
a high-pitch "Let's Go" the
dogs were off and running.
Our days consisted of up
to six hours of "mushing"
the dog sleds or cross-coun-
try skiing as we traded with
the other team members.
Mushing involves maneu-
vering the 300 pound sled
through deep snow, over
rough terrain or smooth ice.
I rarely found myself
standing still for long
on the back of the sled as
another teammate and

propel the sled. It did not
take long before the layers
of clothing started to come

all the exercise. We would
periodically change sides
so we could exercise our
other leg. Navigating over-
land portage trails between

people side-by-side on the

because we needed time
to cut down dead trees for
firewood, set up our cook-
ing tent, break a hole in the
ice for our water, set up our
sleeping area with ground
tarp and overhead tent fly,
start a fire to boil our water
drawn from the lake, feed
the dogs - and finally enjoy
a delicious meal cooked up
by our instructors. Inside
the heavy cloth-nylon cook-
ing tent, the heat of the
stove quickly raised the
temperature into the mid-
80s. We took advantage of
this to hang our socks and
gloves on clotheslines in the
tent and reminisce over the
day's events.
Throughout the week,
Outward Bound instruc-
tors took the lead in get-
ting the team to open up
and discuss their experi-
ences while serving over-
seas - and any problems
we had experienced after
returning home. It was like
a high-adventure version
of the Returning Warrior
Workshop I attended last
December in Destin, Fla.
that was hosted by Regional
Component Comman"d
Southeast. Our discussion's
were lively as we all had
something to contribute
during the evening meet-
ings.
Similar to each of the
team member's experienc-
es overseas, we had come
together initially as strang-
ers to work together as a
team in an austere environ-
ment where we depended
upon each other for our
daily survival. The daily tri-
als and tribulations on the
trail were capped by a solo
event where we each set
off to spend a night alone
in the wilderness with our
thoughts.
Clear weather throughout
the week made for beauti-
ful, star-filled nights. I'll
always remember our last
night on the trail when we
took the dog sleds back up
the lake for an evening run
on the ice when our only
light was provided by the
heavens above.
Our return to base camp
was capped off with a trip
to the sauna - strategically
located next to a river feed-
ing the lake. After heating
in the sauna, we each took
turns taking the plunge
into the icy river.
The goal of Outward
Bound is to push an indi-
vidual to his/her limits to
help them learn what they
are really capable of - and
to have a good time doing it.
They succeeded and I had a
great time. However, the
next time I sign up for an
Outward Bound adventure,
I think I will look for the
offshore sailing excursions
in the Caribbean. It took
me a week to thaw out.

JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, June 25, 2009 3


VP-10 deploys to Middle East and Africa


By Lt. j.g. Jon Moore
VP-10 Public Affairs Officer


Cmdr. James Robinson, the
73rd commanding offi-
cer of VP-10, led the "Red
Lancers" on their final deploy-
ment from NAS Brunswick,
Maine relieving the "Fighting
Tigers" of VP-8 June 3 in their
dual site deployment to Qatar
and Djibouti.
While deployed, VP-10 will
conduct missions in support
of Operation Iraqi Freedom,
Operation Enduring Freedom,
Maritime Security Operations
and anti-piracy missions to pro-
tect America's maritime inter-
ests in the Arabian Gulf, Gulf of


Oman, the Arabian Sea and the
Gulf of Aden.
The Red Lancers will not be
working alone. While overseas,
they will be part of several multi-
national task forces that include
the navies and air forces of Japan,
Germany, France, Spain and
England.
The Red Lancers have been
instrumental in the welcom-
ing of the Japanese Maritime
Self Defense Force (JMSDF) to
Djibouti as they embark on their
first forward deployment in over
60 years. VP-10 has been ready
and willing to assist the Japanese
from day one in order to ensure
their deployment is a success.


Having the JMSDF on the team
is a force multiplier.
While forward deployed, the
Red Lancers of VP-10 will be
ambassadors of the United States


in order to strengthen relations
with their host countries. Always
looking to lend a helping hand, a
number of community relations
projects will be conducted by the
Red Lancers.
Several members of the squad-
ron have already volunteered at
local orphanages and participated
in teaching English to the local
community.
VP-10 will not only donate their
time but will also hold fundrais-
ers for the local charities. Much
needed basic necessities, which
many in the U.S. take for granted,
are scarce in regions surrounding
their forward deployed sites.
While the Red Lancers will


maintain a strong focus on mis-
sion accomplishment during the
next six months, they will also
look forward to the day they are
reunited with their families and
loved ones.
To make life even more interest-
ing, VP-10 is conducting a home-
port change to NAS Jacksonville
to coincide with the conclusion of
this deployment. Though very dif-
ferent from the northern climate
of Maine, Jacksonville beckons
with open arms.
The Red Lancers look forward
to continuing their tradition
of hard work and excellence in
and are eager to set the pace in
Jacksonville in the near future.


The international face



of maritime patrol


By Lt. Nick Rueda
VP 10
The P-3 Orion has a long history as a
reliable, accomplished aircraft with
multiple missions within its capa-
bilities. This ability is a key reason why
so many nations throughout the world
utilize the P-3 as their primary air asset
with regards to their maritime patrol
force.
This confidence in an aircraft that has
proven itself decade after decade is visible
in the current war to combat piracy off the
coast of the Horn of Africa.
Four nations the United States,
Germany, Spain and Japan, have put their
faith in the P-3 Orion to help them in this
endeavor. Each nation currently oper-
ates their aircraft out of Djibouti, Africa.
The U.S. side of the base is called "Camp
Lemonier."
Once a sleepy 97-acre post located on the
western edge of the Horn of Africa, Camp
Lemonier is now a 500-acre base that has
become an essential tool supporting air-
craft conducting anti-piracy operations in
the region.
The coalition of nations operating P-3s
are in constant contact with each other in


*



*


order to optimize all of their missions in
this crucial war against this new breed of
terrorists.
A steady flow of information between the
allied nations has proven invaluable, while
ensuring that all parties are operating
with all available tools.
On June 10, the P-3 crews took time to
conduct a different type of mission, one to
commemorate this historic occasion of hav-
ing the aforementioned nations all working
side by side in this coalition against piracy.
VP-10 coordinated the aircraft and per-
sonnel from the four different countries
and quickly learned this was no small
task. The challenges of staging aircraft,
coordinating ramp space and personnel
were further put to the test by scheduling
and language constraints, and the extreme
heat of North-East Africa.
These challenges are similar to those
faced every day by the support staffs and
aircrews from these four nations, defend-
ing their common national interests so far
from home.
The photo-op was representative of the
spirit of cooperation and friendship shared
by these nations, united against the threat
of international terrorism and piracy.

Team Focus visits 'War Eagles' Navy suspends bonus program

From Chief of Naval Personnel
Public Affairs
ased on the
number of -
Sailors who
have enlisted this year
under the selective
reenlistment bonus
program (SRB), the
Navy reached its con-
gressional authority
funding limit for this fis-
cal year.
More than 10,000 Sailors
have reenlisted with a reen- -
listment bonus. Accordingly,
the Navy has suspended the SRB program
for the remainder of the fiscal year.
SRB requests received by Navy Personnel
Command-811 prior to the release of
White NAVADMIN 176/09 through the Officer
'War Personnel Information System will still be
pro- processed. Less than 685 Sailors remain
on. in the eligibility window to reenlist with a
SRB this fiscal year.
"The Navy will continue its strong com-
mitment to the SRB program, and it


remains a critical compo-
nent of our overall reten-
tion efforts," said Vice
Adm. Mark Ferguson,
chief of naval personnel
in a June 16 news
P release.
"I want to assure
Sailors that the SRB
program will con-
tinue to be available
next fiscal year."
SRB award levels for the
next fiscal year for qualifying
Sailors in specific ratings and
NECs will be announced via
NAVADMIN later this summer.
SRB is a dynamic market-based incen-
tive designed to retain those Sailors in the
Navy's most critical ratings and NECs.
"This bonus is just one piece of Navy's
world-class pay and compensation package,
and we will continue to work to maintain
and improve this package that sustains
our Navy," said Ferguson.

Personnel, visit www.navy.mil/local/cnp/.


The "War Eagles" of VP-16 recent-
ly hosted a P-3 aircrew from the
Chilean Naval Squadron VP-1, based
in Valparaiso, Chile. Their mission was
to work with VP-16 aircrews and other
naval assets in anti-submarine war-
fare exercises. (Standing fifth and sixth

CHAPLAIN'S CORNER



The fourth of July,


brought to you by ...


By Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top

On December 25, 1776, the sick,
starved and tattered Continental
Army, led by General George
Washington crossed the Delaware River.
After nearly being wiped out completely
at the battle of Long Island, the depleted
Americans had withdrawn to Valley Forge
to pull themselves together. It was cold,
clothing and food was scarce,
disease was rampant, and it
looked unlikely that the inex-
perienced Americans could
stop the might of the British
forces.
It was about these conditions
that Thomas Paine wrote,
"These are the times that try
men's souls. The summer sol-
dier and the sunshine patriot .
will, in this crisis, shrink from
the service of their country; but --
he that stands now deserves Chaplain (L
the love and thanks of man and woman."
As the soldiers crossed the river and
moved into New Jersey, the many shoeless
soldiers left a trail of blood in the snow.
The men were exhausted, sick, and many
of their enlistments were ending without
any prospect of being paid. Despite this,
they remained committed to the cause of
freedom.
On Christmas day and in the weeks to
follow, the Continental Army attacked
and defeated the British at Trenton and
Princeton. The determination of these men
to prevail despite the overwhelming dif-
ficulties changed the momentum of the
war and eventually led to victory and the
establishment of the United States.
Decades later, the fledgling nation, still
struggling to develop democracy, found
itself in a similarly precarious situation.
In 1812, the U.S. again faced war with the
powerful British forces. By September of
1814, the British had pillaged Washington
D.C. and burned the White House and the
Capitol building, sending the U.S. govern-
ment into exile. The British navy moved to


.t.


capture the harbor at Baltimore and seal
the fate of the United States. All through
the night of September 13, the Royal navy
pounded Fort McHenry, the last defense of
the harbor.
From a distant ship, Francis Scott Key
watched the brutal assault, sure that no
one could survive such a bombardment.
To the surprise of all, when the morn-
ing came, "Old Glory" still waved proudly
above the fort. The soldiers
inside gave such a fight that
the British fleet withdrew. Key
was so inspired by the valor
he witnessed, he wrote a poem
that later became our national
anthem.
Throughout the decades
of this nation's history, this
story has played out again
and again. When opposition
arose and there appeared no
i hope in sight, dedicated men
) ustin Top and women rose and met
the challenge head on. During the Great
Depression, throughout the World Wars
and the Cold War, and on September 11
and in its aftermath, Americans have given
their all for "life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness."
This is the true spirit of America. When
times get tough and the odds seem to be
stacked against us, we must remember the
examples of those who made this Fourth
of July holiday possible. As you see the
flag being raised, as you hear our nation-
al anthem, and as you see the "rocket's
red glare," remember what it all stands
for. Then think of your own life and the
difficulties you are facing, whether they
are financial troubles, or problems in your
family or relationships. Whatever they
may be, remember that this country exists
because men and women had the courage
to fight, even when they had little hope
of success. Every time you put your hand
over your heart or salute, recommit in your
heart and mind to fight for what is right in
your own life, no matter how hard it may
seem.

ship and its squadrons and transportation
of distinguished visitors (DVs). VRC-40 out
of Naval Station Norfolk is responsible for
the delivery of the supplies to the carrier
and flying out the DVs. The last aspect of
the COMTUEX we are accountable for
is emergency diverting of aircraft if for
some reason they can't land on the car-
rier."
NAS Jax hosted VRC-40, VFC-12 and
several aircraft from ATAC. VRC-40 flies
C-2 Greyhounds and performs missions to
and from the carrier.
VFC-12 flies F/A-18 Hornets with an
adversary blue camouflage paint scheme
to simulate aggressor aircraft when they
fly missions in support of exercises. ATAC
flies aggressor missions with radar jam-
ming equipment as well as towing drones
for the ship to shoot down.
"For us, COMTUEX is a two-part mis-


sion. The first part is cargo and high prior-
ity requisitions. These are things that the
ship and squadrons need to perform their
missions. We transport gear and parts for
the aircraft, carrier and handle logistics
for the ship," said Lt. j.g. Mike Pearne of
VRC-40.
"We also transport DVs to the carrier.
This allows the Navy to take authorized
civilians out to the ship and show them
how their tax dollars are being spent, as
well as showing them how a carrier oper-
ates while on deployment," he continued.
"COMTUEX is a test for everyone on the
carrier including squadron personnel, deck
handlers and all other crewmembers."
COMTUEX is the first major exercise
involving the entire strike group in prepa-
ration for the upcoming deployment later
this year.
The extensive exercise prepares the car-
rier, air wing and other units in the battle
group to function as one fighting force.

Regulatory officials


take environmental


journey on base


By Clark Pierce
Editor


Representatives of the
Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection (FDEP), City of
Jacksonville Environmental
and Compliance
Department, and the
St. Johns River Water
Management District
(SJRWMD) were briefed on
the station's conservation,
energy reduction, pollution-
prevention and recycling
programs June 18 by NAS
Jax Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. and
NAS Jax Environmental
Director Kevin Gartland.
Driving a solar-electric,
low-speed vehicle, Gartland
and Scorby met the party
at the main gate and trans-
ported them to Hangar 511
where NAVFAC Southeast
Engineer Thom Tryon
pointed out environmental
and energy saving design
features. With P-3C Orion
aircraft turning up their
engines on the nearby ramp,
David Miracle of SJRWMD
asked about noise and land-
use issues.
Scorby replied, "Encroach-
ment protection is a major
issue with airports and
military installations
across America. What NAS
Jacksonville has accom-
plished in partnership with
local government, citizens
groups and regulatory
agencies is now being used
as a model by the Florida
Building Commission to add
more effective noise abate-
ment guidelines to state
building codes."
Gartland added, "We live
and work in our communi-
ties like everyone else so
we have a stake in proac-


tively resolving encroach-
ment issues, too."
Derek Igou, depu-
ty director of the City's
Environmental and
Compliance Department,
appreciated his invitation
to tour NAS Jacksonville.
"This is a good opportunity
to learn about the Navy's
commitment to environ-
mental excellence. I'm
impressed that their two
new hangars are in the
process of being LEED
(Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design)
certified according to the
Green Building Rating
System."
Miracle, who previously
visited the station during
the 2008 air show, said,
"Our agency regulates
storm water and consump-
tive-use permitting. I find
the professionals here on
base to be very responsive
to the environmental needs
of the community. It's good
to see they used pervious
pavement and turf blocks
in the parking areas of the
new hangars to lessen the
impact of storm water run-
off."
FDEP Wastewater Mana-
ger Khalid Al-Nahdy was
impressed with the station's
green spaces and overall
cleanliness. "It appears that
Captain Scorby runs a very
tight ship," said Al-Nahdy.
"I also find the interpretive
center to be very interesting
and a great teaching tool for
our community."
At the Black Point
Interpretive Center near
Mulberry Cove, NAS
Jax Assistant Natural
Resources Manager Angela
Glass explained the center's
popularity.

Special duty assignment

pay revisions start July 26

By MCI(AW) LaTunya Howard
Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

NAVADMIN 156/09, announces revisions in special
duty assignment pay (SDAP), which take effect
July 26.
The revisions adjust SDAP levels for active and Reserve
component full-time support (FTS) Sailors, but the major-
ity of SDAP pay remains unchanged from 2008.
"We typically release a new SDAP plan once per year,"
said Jeri Busch, the head of the military pay and com-
pensation policy branch for the chief of naval personnel.
"Out of 166 line items, we reduced 36 single-level and 21
multilevel, with seven going to zero and 102 remaining
unchanged," said Busch.
Approximately 26,500 Sailors receive SDAP each month,
and of these, 6,300 are affected by this message. Adjusted
pay rates will be reflected in the August pay cycle, said
Busch.
Sailors whose SDAP will be eliminated will receive half
of their previous SDAP entitlement for 12 months, or until
the Sailor completes the tour, whichever comes first.
he SDAP program is an incentive for Sailors to serve in
designated billets that are considered extremely difficult
or entail arduous duty. Program levels change to reflect
the current environment associated with each billet.
Commands holding SDAP billets are required to com-
plete an annual recertification by Aug. 31. Guidance for
this process can be found in NAVADMIN 168/09.

The chief of naval per-
sonnel (CNP) said
June 15 that he is
optimistic that permanent
change of station (PCS)
order writing would resume
within a few weeks.
Via video stream, Vice
Adm. Mark Ferguson spoke
to more than 600 Navy
counselors, career counsel-
ors and command master
chiefs attending the 21st
annual Navy Counselor
Association (NCA) sympo-
sium here.
The Navy's $350 mil-
lion budget shortfall was
partially responsible for
the hold on PCS transfers

Changes with the order-
writing accounting system
were another factor affect-

cuted.
This paired with record
retention and fewer sepa-
rations due to attrition
has slowed the number of
Sailors leaving active duty
and required the Navy to
divert money for payroll
rather than previously bud-
geted programs.
"Manpower costs are one
of the fastest growing com-
ponents of the budget. It's
growing at about four to six
percent a year and is much
higher than inflation," said
Ferguson.
CNP explained Navy's
force stabilization objec-
tives to the audience indi-
cating where the Navy is
with end strength, how it
got there and where the
Navy is headed.
"The anticipated reten-
tion rate was 52 to 54 per-
cent; we are at 60 percent
retention for Zone A. This


behavior is tracking with
the rate of unemployment,"
said Ferguson.
Zone A Sailors have less
than six years of service,
and six percent more of
these Sailors than projected
are choosing to stay Navy,
contributing to the Navy's
budget shortfall.
The NCA symposium
runs from June 15-19. This
year's theme is "Building
a Top 50 Organization."
Emphasis areas include
benefits, force stabilization
and Sailor performance.
Other topics covered at the
symposium include career

sorship and command
indoctrination, Perform to

Father 's Day, the Navy way


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


I was born soon after my dad left
for his first six-month deploy-
ment onboard USS Franklin D.
Roosevelt. Mom was alone in the
delivery room, which wasn't unusu-
al in the 1970s. Dad received word
of my arrival through a Red Cross
telegram while he was in the middle
of the Pacific Ocean, and relatively
speaking, that wasn't normal for new
dads, even in 1976. It would be seven
months before I met Dad.
Twenty-two years later, when I
was about to leave home, Dad's LES
(Leave and Earnings Statement; the
military's equivalent of a pay stub)
reported that he had accumulated 11
years of sea duty. He had literally
been gone half my life. That's a lot of
missed piano recitals and first days
of school. Because of this, when I was
little, I said I would not marry some-
one in the military.
[Enter Fate and his good friend
Irony.]
During that first deployment, there
was another new family in the squad-
ron. They had a 1-year-old son named
Dustin. He and his mom, Robin, flew
overseas to meet the ship when it
pulled into port in Europe. There they
met my dad.
"When you get back to the States,
you should look up my daughter who
was just born," Dad told Robin and
Dustin.
A few months later, Robin attended
a belated baby shower held for my
mom. Meaning, my future husband
met my dad before I did, and I met
my future husband before I met my
dad.
Dustin and I were married in 1999,
despite the fact that he had just
graduated from the Naval Academy
and was headed down to Pensacola,
Fla., for flight school and a career
in the military. I overlooked those
small details. And in 2000, our first
son, Ford, was born in the middle


FROM THE HOMEFRONT


of Dustin's new
squadron's "work
ups.
See, when a
military person
says they will
deploy on a ship
for "six months,"
what they mean
is, "I will deploy
on a ship for six
months, but first
I will spend a
year doing train-
ing exercises that
will have me out
on the ship for
two weeks, home S
Sarah
for one, back out
again for a month, home for three
days, yada, yada, yada."
By the time Dustin left for the
actual deployment, our baby was
six-months old, and he had already
missed most of Ford's short life. In
fact, by the time Ford celebrated his
second birthday, I would guess that
Dustin had only been home for maybe
six months total (and not consecu-
tively).
In the middle of the chaos (did I
mention that we moved across coun-
try, too?), why not have a second
child, right? Owen was born, and six
weeks later, Dustin left for another
deployment.
I'm preaching to the choir with mil-
itary families. This is all standard
stuff. Indeed, many families have had
it much worse.
But I think it's important for other
people not familiar with the military
lifestyle to see just how much these
families sacrifice, and how most of it
can't be measured in dollars.
When we look at family scrapbooks,
Dustin is absent from a good por-
tion of the pictures. If Ford wants to
know what he was like as a baby, his

dad can't always
answer.
And yet, I think
it was easier for
my dad's genera-
tion to miss these
things because
society as a whole
did not expect as
Such from fathers
then. In today's
world, fathers are
expected to be
just as involved
as mothers, which
makes leaving
on a ship for six
months more dif-
miley ficult if only
because of well-meaning relatives
and friends who say, "How can you
leave and miss your child's birth?"
and "Can't the military send you back
in time for your daughter's first birth-
day party?"
At a spouse group meeting when
Ford was almost a 1-year-old and
the ship was supposed to return any
day, Ford unexpectedly stood and
took his first steps. Twenty military
wives stuck out their foot to trip him.
"No, wait for your dad," they yelled.
Ford got up again and walked across
the room. (Kids, of course, grow up
whether Dad is there or not.)
Funny, my dad missed my birth in
1976, but it was considered "all part
of the job." My husband now has the
same job, but it seemed unthinkable
for him to miss Ford's first steps.
A dad, however, is more than a col-
lection of shared recitals and first
words. And this Father's Day, when
Dustin and my dad are both home,
all the moments they've missed don't
seem to matter. That was true then,
and it's true now. Once a dad is pres-
ent, it doesn't really matter how long
he was gone.


Universal fun for the whole family
By Erica Pefia Vest & Ryan Vest
Special Contributors -.----.. T &--.


With Orlando being so close to
us here in Florida, it's easy
to get away with the kids
for the weekend. With all of the free
offers for the military through ITT,
we truly have no excuse not to devote
our free weekends to showing the
family some fun.
Universal Orlando is made up of
two parks. The first is Universal
Studios, the motion picture and televi-
sion theme park opened in 1990 that
used Steven Spielberg as its creative
consultant.
Its main theme is to allow the visi-
tor to "ride the movies" through state-
of-the-art shows and attractions. The
"Men in Black Alien Attack" ride is
the world's first ride-through interac-
tive video game where guests deter-
mine each ride's outcome by their
individual and collective input.
Other popular attractions include
Shrek 4-D, The Simpsons Ride, and
Revenge of the Mummy.
Opening this summer is the high-


rnEERDUM I I HAVEL


ly anticipated Hollywood Rip Ride
Rockit. Set to rock music, I watched a
video on what this ride would be like
when completed and I guarantee
that you have never seen anything
like it! It will be a favorite of you
thrill seekers and something I will
have to see in person to truly under-
stand the concept.
Islands of Adventures is Universal
Orlando's second and newest park
- also designed with the help of pro-
ducer/director Steven Spielberg.
Since 1999, it has been home to
some of Universal's most thrilling
rides and attractions. Set among the
exotic coastlines of the world's oceans
this adventure takes you through
five themed islands: Seuss Landing,
Toon Lagoon, Marvel Super Hero
Island, Jurassic Park and The Lost
Continent.
Each offers parents and children
alike a thrilling experience among


their favorite comic book heroes, vil-
lains, mythical creatures and prehis-
toric dinosaurs. This park is a favor-
ite with kids and would be my rec-
ommendation if you had to choose
between the two parks.
An don't forget Universal City
Walk, adjacent to the parks, where
food with fun takes center stage. We
like dining at Emeril's Restaurant, a
real culinary treat after eating fast
food at the parks.
The best part of it all is that
Universal Orlando is offering mem-

HEY, MONEYCHIC!

Hey, MoneyChic! My son just graduated from high
school and wants a credit card for college. Should I co-sign
for him? I'm thinking it's a good way to learn to manage
credit. Any thoughts on this topic, MoneyChic?
MoneyChic says: I'm not a fan of young people using
credit cards. Let them learn to pay cash for items they
want and to save for stuff they can't afford at the present.
The Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and
Disclosure Act prohibits credit card issuers from extend-
ing credit to a person under 21 unless:
A) The card issuer has proof the young person has the
"independent" means (that means not the parent paying
the charges) to repay any credit incurred.
B) The parent co-signs on the credit application. That
makes you jointly liable for the entire debt. If your son
misses a payment, it also shows up on your credit reports.
Do you really want to give your teenager that type of
influence on your credit?
If you are thinking about your child building a credit
history, it only takes six months to establish. Let your son
learn to live within the limits of his budget and establish
the habit early in life of paying for things in cash. That's
my two cents on the subject.

INSTRUCTORS: Local career academy sends teachers to NAS Jax tower
From Page 1 I 1 11


NAS Jax could come up with an
activity that incorporates prin-
ciples of physics and aerodynam-
ics, principles of leadership and
teamwork, along with written
communication skills. So the stu-
dent may sit down and do one
activity that incorporates three
or four subject areas all wrapped
around aviation. That's the cool
outcome of this program," Wirth
continued.
"The instructors are from a
career academy which is a school
within a school designed to teach
a career theme to prepare kids
for college and careers simultane-
ously."
The trio spent their time work-
ing side-by-side with Navy air
traffic controllers in the control
tower and radar room to get a
glimpse of how the controllers
handle the wide variety of air-
craft going in and out of the sta-
tion each day.
"It's a great experience because
this is real life. We talk about it
in the classroom and read books,
but now we have instructors who
can apply what Navy men and
women are doing here every day
with what we're trying to teach
teenagers about the jobs they
may be doing in the future," stat-
ed Charlie Rutledge, an instruc-
tor with the Aviation Career
Academy at Frank H. Peterson
Academies of Technology. "It's
very exciting to be here both on
a professional level and personal
level. My dad was stationed here
in the 1960s and I spent quite a
bit of time here growing up. It's

good to be back."
The externship program has
four primary goals:
SProfessional development that
provides hands-on experience in a
contemporary workplace environ-
ment. The externship increases
teachers' awareness of industry
needs and requirements. Teachers
will be educated about the types
of skills necessary for the work-
place.
Bridging the gap between the
workplace and the classroom is


accomplished with active busi-
ness involvement. Creative work-
place experience allows educators
to apply real-life career situations
to classroom curriculum, giving
students up-to-date information
to relate what they learn to work-
place applications.
Development of curricula that
have the potential to change the
way that students think and learn
about the world beyond their
classroom walls. Teachers gain
exposure to the workplace, devel-


op connections with professionals
in fields related to their subject
areas, and incorporate new infor-
mation into their classes.
Build strong relationships
between education and business.
The relationships that teachers
build with businesses through
their externships can reap bene-
fits for students in the form of site
tours, collaborations with compa-
ny representatives on class proj-
ects, and even work experiences
for the students themselves.

John Slate, an instructor with
Frank H. Peterson Academies of
Technology, talks with AC1(AW)
Richard Price about how many air-
craft he monitors each day at the
NAS Jax Air Operations Control
Tower.
By hosting the group, the air
traffic controllers also gain the
benefit of realizing they are help-
ing the future generation work-
force.
"It's a great deal for us because
we get a chance to influence the
people who are molding the next
generation of air traffic control-
lers. We help them go back and
teach the students what they have
learned. Eventually, we may see
some of these students working
with us," said ACC(AW/SW) Karl
Vliet of NAS Jax Air Operations
Department, who coordinated the
visit.
Overall, it's a win-win situation
for the Navy and the school. "The
chamber is grateful to the Navy
in so many ways and this is just
one small example of what a great
partner the Navy is in helping us
to elevate the education gain here
in the region," said Wirth.

In 2008, cyclists from Northeast Florida and Southeast
Georgia pedal to the site of the accident that claimed the life
of Lt. Cmdr. James Warmowski on U.S. 17 south of Green
Cove Springs.

Warmowski memorial ride July 12

From staff

Join Team Navy Jax cycling team, the North Florida
Bicycle Club, family and friends on July 12 at 8 a.m.
in celebrating the life of Lt. Cmdr. Jim Warmowski,
a former NAS Jax officer who was tragically struck and
killed by an intoxicated driver July 14, 2002.
Warmowski was riding his bicycle on U.S. 17, south of
Green Cove Springs, training for a triathlon.
The 22.4-mile memorial ride will have a leisurely pace,
followed by 42- or 34-mile options after the memorial.
The ride will start at the Fleming Island Winn Dixie
parking lot on CR 220 and head south 11 miles to the spot
where he lost his life. In 2008, about 300 bicyclists partici-
pated to make the motoring public aware of the existence
of bicyclists and to implore folks to "share the road."
An NAS Jax chaplain will deliver inspirational words,
Taps will be played by a Navy Band Southeast bugler, and
a wreath will be placed at the memorial marker.

supports Truman


Strike Force


By AWVAN Scott Beach
Staff Writer
D during the past two weeks,
NAS Jacksonville has
been working virtu-
ally around-the-clock spending
hundreds of hours supporting
aggressor and logistics squad-
rons in support of the USS Harry
S. Truman (CVN 75) Composite
Training Unit Exercise
(COMTUEX) taking place off the
Atlantic Coast.
The exercise represents a criti-
cal training opportunity that eval-
uates how well ships and aircraft
operate together to nullify threats
from air, surface, submarine and
information warfare among other
potential factors.
Through its 21-day series
of graded exercise scenarios,
COMTUEX measures the battle


readiness of the strike group for
its upcoming deployment. Key to
the strike group's work-up cycle,
it means long days and nights of
flight operations on board the car-
rier and at NAS Jax.
"NAS Jacksonville is respon-
sible for three different aspects
of the carrier's COMTUEX exer-
cise. First is to assist the differ-
ent detachments stationed here
to play the role of the aggres-
sor aircraft throughout differ-
ent missions conducted within
the COMTUEX training evolu-
tion," explained Air Operations
Officer Cmdr. Robert Surgeoner.

The NAS Jacksonville Air Operations
Department hosted three instruc-
tors from the Frank H. Peterson
Aviation Career Academy Program in
Jacksonville June 18-19.
The visit was part of the Jacksonville
Chamber of Commerce 2009 Teachers in
Business Externship Program designed to
provide teachers with real work experienc-
es and to allow them to observe the skills
needed for high-wage and high-demand
employment.
"We have placed three instructors at NAS
Jax so they can get an understanding of the
latest and greatest technology and then get
together and develop classroom activities
that relate to their experiences," said Tina
Wirth, director of Workforce Development
with the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of
Commerce.
"For example, the instructors visiting

Expeditionary Secu-
rity Squadron (MSRON)
10, headquartered at NAS
Jacksonville, launched
their four high-speed
patrol boats in the St.
Johns River June 19 and
set course for NS Mayport
to practice anti-terrorism
and force protection (AT/
FP) skills in preparation
for their upcoming Unit
Level Training Readiness
Assessment (ULTRA)
inspection.
"The goal of ULTRA is to
assess the squadron's abil-
ity to effectively train itself
and to perform in numer-
ous warfare areas," said
Lt. Shane Bosse, officer in
charge of MSRON 10 Boat


Division 102.
"Prior to next week's
inspection, we're perform-
ing basic training with our
boat teams because we've
had a big influx of new per-
sonnel. This allows us to
coordinate as a full squad-
ron, rather than isolated,
weekend reserve detach-
ments."
MSRON 10 Chief Staff
Officer Lt. Cmdr. Zach
Staples explained, "We're
treating Naval Station
Mayport as if it were a for-
eign port. We'll set up a
base camp with entry con-
trol points and secure the
harbor. We'll also establish
our communications, sen-
sors and surveillance mod-
ules. We can also provide
high-value asset security,
embarked security protec-
tion for vessels unable to
provide their own security,


and perimeter security and
force protection."
Besides patrolling for
waterborne threat scenarios
in the ship basin, MSRON
10 boat crews will practice
their navigation and gen-
eral boat-handling skills in
a coastal environment.
CWO4 Stephen Lee,
assistant officer in charge
of MSRON 10 Boat Division
101, added that squadron
personnel attended Camp
Blanding Joint Training
Center in Starke, Fla. for
small arms and crew-served
weapons training.
"A live-fire exercise gives
our people the chance to get
the real feel of their weap-
ons so that they will know
how to properly operate
them in an AT/FP situa-
tion."

Challenge. The event takes
place Oct. 8-10 in the
heart of the Appalachian
Mountains along the New

West Virginia.
More than 300 military
personnel representing
teams from around the
world are expected to com-

60 teams, so competitors
are encouraged to register
early.
"The MWR Wilderness
Challenge continues to
bring together the best ath-
letes in the armed forces
and put them to the test,"
said Michael Bond, event
coordinator.
"The competition gets
tougher and tougher every
year." Bond encourages
teams to register early to

"The Army and the
Navy have yet to win the
Wilderness Challenge,"
Bond stated.
"This is a great opportu-
nity for a team from one of
these services to step up
and win big."
"It is not an easy compe-

team will be the best of the
best in outdoor recreation

Fireworks prohibited at NAS Jax


From the NAS lax Fire Prevention
Division
xcept, for command controlled dis-
plays, the possession of explosives
and fireworks for sale, storage or
use of any description at NAS Jacksonville
property, are strictly prohibited.
Fireworks are spectacular to watch, and
make great noises, but can be extremely
dangerous in the hands of amateurs.


However, fireworks can turn a joyful
celebration into a painful memory when
children and adults are injured while
using fireworks. NAS Jacksonville Fire
Prevention Division recommends attending
public fireworks displays because shows
are safer and have better visual displays
then what might be accomplished at your
home.
Stay safe this Fourth of July holiday!


Naval Facilities Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast Attorney Richard
Barfield deployed May 31 to Iraq as an
Individual Augmentee (IA) for the next eight months.
He will serve as an administrative law attorney at
Multi-National Force Iraq (MNF-I).
"This is my eighth deployment, beginning when I
was an active duty Marine and now as a civilian," said
Barfield.
Barfield exemplifies Navy Ethos with his commit-
ment to serving this great country. Civilians and
active-duty members alike hold core values of honor,
courage and commitment. Individual Augmentees
are Sailors and civilians who are filling individual
billet requirements for various combat commanders,
dedicated individuals provide key and critical skills to
America's security.
Barfield will provide legal advice on regulatory
interpretation, review of military airlift requests,
coordinate Congressional testimonial responses, over-
see the rewards program and advise on Freedom of
Information Act and Privacy Act issues. He will be the
action officer for issues pertaining to environmental
law and personnel law. In addition, he will advise the
command on all investigations.
He previously was in charge of a legal office in the
Marines in the first Gulf War and he had been the
chairman of the international and operational law
department at the Army JAG School.
A major part of Barfield's job will stem from the
Security Agreement Secretariat under the charge
of the U.S. Army Major General. In the presence
of Senior Government of Iraq (Gol) Ministers and
Officers, at the negotiating table, Barfield will review
and revise all binding bi-lateral agreements generated
by the Security Agreement Secretariat, submit legal
advice and security agreement interpretation.
Barfield will likely serve as legal counsel to nine
of the 12 joint subcommittees (JSC) responsible for
the security agreement implementation. The nine
JSC include: Agreed Facilities and Area; Claims'
Entry/Exit; Import/Export; Surveillance and Airspace
control; Frequency Management; Green Zone transi-
tion; Vehicle, Vessels and Movement; and Transfer of
Provincial Security.
The approximately 14 hour days, seven day work
week duties should assist Barfield to achieve his per-
sonal goals of accomplishment of duty and to learn to
speak Arabic.
Since 9/11, over 73,000 Sailors and civilians have
served on IA tours in support of "enduring conflicts."
The Navy is making a difference in places like Iraq,
Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, and the Philippines.

Mushing my way to fond memories


By Lt. Cmdr. Mike Saling
Navy Operational Support
Center Jacksonville
During conversations
with members of the
Navy Operational
Support Center (NOSC)
staff in late February, I
found myself repeating a
common question. "I know
that at some point next
week I will be freezing
cold wondering why I ever
wanted to go dog sledding
and cross-country skiing in
Ely (e-lee), Minnesota?"
The answer turned out to
be that my eight days with
Outward Bound Wilderness
was an incredible experi-
ence.
Returning from Afghan-
istan in July 2008, I
reported aboard NOSC
Jacksonville in August
and settled into the office
routine. Then, the OEF/
OIF Veterans 2009 Course
Offerings e-mail hit my
desk offering a variety of
Outward Bound outdoor
expeditions with the possi-
bility of an all-expense paid
high-adventure experience
that was sure to get the
adrenaline pumping.
The program is funded
by a $3.5M grant from the
Sierra Club which covers
all costs to include lodg-
ing, food, equipment, staff
instruction, and state-side
roundtrip transportation
to and from the expedi-
tion site. It is open to any
U.S. military service mem-
ber (active duty, retired,
honorably discharged,
National Guard, or Reserve
Component) who deployed
into a combat zone in
support of Operation
Enduring Freedom (OEF
-Afghanistan) and/or
Operation Iraqi Freedom
(OIF Southwest Asia).
I submitted my appli-
cation and chose the dog
sledding/cross-country ski-
ing expedition as my first
choice since those were two
activities which I had never
before experienced. As an
Eagle Scout, I have enjoyed
a variety of challenging
camping experiences, but
this one proved to be one
of the most extreme experi-
ences I have ever had.
Once my application and
medical screening were
complete and I was selected
for the program, I submit-
ted my leave papers and
made my travel arrange-
ments. I packed my cold
weather gear that had kept
me warm in Afghanistan
and headed north.
Ely, Minn. is a popular
destination during the sum-
mer months as the entry
point into the Boundary
Waters National Wildlife
Refuge. The land of 1,000
lakes along the U.S./
Canadian border is popular

and becomes a winter won-

cross-country skiing in the
winter. It was across this
terrain that my team and I
would spend six cold nights
and seven long days travel-
ling over 32 miles of hills
and lakes with 11 dogs, two
sleds, and several bottles of
ibuprofen.
In our first night at
base camp, we met our
new teammates and were
divided into two six-per-
son teams that were each
led by two Outward Bound
instructors. Backpacks,
sleeping bags, outerwear,
heavy boots, cross-country
skis and other miscella-
neous gear was issued while
the instructors checked
over our personal items to
minimize the weight we
would be carrying. A quick
introduction to cross-coun-
try skiing techniques on the
lake during sunset exposed
all of us to the harsh reality
that it was absolutely frigid
in Minnesota in March and
we were in for a long week.
With the instructors hav-
ing previously demonstrat-
ed the Houdini-like efforts
required to remove outer-
wear while simultaneously
enclosing ourselves inside
of two sleeping bags, they
had us sleep on the outside
porch in an effort to accli-
mate us to the cold weath-
er sleeping environment
we would get to enjoy for
the rest of the week on the
trail.
A brutal reality set in
that evening as the tem-
peratures dipped to nega-
tive 24 degrees Fahrenheit
and I woke to find my pants
frozen stiff lying next to my
sleeping bag. It was going
to be a long week.
That first morning we
secured gear to the dog
sleds, got some quick dog

sled operating lessons, har-
nessed the dogs, and with
a high-pitch "Let's Go" the
dogs were off and running.
Our days consisted of up
to six hours of "mushing"
the dog sleds or cross-coun-
try skiing as we traded with
the other team members.
Mushing involves maneu-
vering the 300 pound sled
through deep snow, over
rough terrain or smooth ice.
I rarely found myself
standing still for long
on the back of the sled as
another teammate and
I each had one runner to
stand on while we pushed
off with our free leg to help
propel the sled. It did not
take long before the layers
of clothing started to come
off as our core body tem-
peratures heated up from
all the exercise. We would
periodically change sides
so we could exercise our
other leg. Navigating over-
land portage trails between
lakes was difficult with two
people side-by-side on the
back of the sled. Inevitably
our two bodies were wider

than the sled and the trail
was barely large enough
for the sled to travel. So
one or the other of us would
have to jump off the sled at
times to avoid being forcibly
removed by a tree along our
side of the trail.
Cross-country skiing also
took some time to master.
Going uphill (even slightly)
on skis is not an easy task
and is only made harder
while wearing a backpack.
Going downhill on cross-
country skis is a completely

because we needed time
to cut down dead trees for
firewood, set up our cook-
ing tent, break a hole in the
ice for our water, set up our
sleeping area with ground
tarp and overhead tent fly,
start a fire to boil our water
drawn from the lake, feed
the dogs and finally enjoy
a delicious meal cooked up
by our instructors. Inside
the heavy cloth-nylon cook-
ing tent, the heat of the
stove quickly raised the
temperature into the mid-
80s. We took advantage of
this to hang our socks and
gloves on clotheslines in the
tent and reminisce over the
day's events.
Throughout the week,
Outward Bound instruc-
tors took the lead in get-
ting the team to open up
and discuss their experi-
ences while serving over-
seas and any problems
we had experienced after
returning home. It was like
a high-adventure version
of the Returning Warrior
Workshop I attended last
December in Destin, Fla.
that was hosted by Regional
Component Command
Southeast. Our discussions
were lively as we all had
something to contribute
during the evening meet-
ings.
Similar to each of the
team member's experienc-
es overseas, we had come
together initially as strang-
ers to work together as a
team in an austere environ-
ment where we depended
upon each other for our
daily survival. The daily tri-
als and tribulations on the
trail were capped by a solo
event where we each set
off to spend a night alone
in the wilderness with our
thoughts.
Clear weather throughout
the week made for beauti-
ful, star-filled nights. I'll
always remember our last
night on the trail when we
took the dog sleds back up
the lake for an evening run
on the ice when our only
light was provided by the
heavens above.
Our return to base camp
was capped off with a trip
to the sauna strategically
located next to a river feed-
ing the lake. After heating
in the sauna, we each took
turns taking the plunge
into the icy river.
The goal of Outward
Bound is to push an indi-
vidual to his/her limits to
help them learn what they
are really capable of and
to have a good time doing it.
They succeeded and I had a
great time. However, the
next time I sign up for an
Outward Bound adventure,
I think I will look for the
offshore sailing excursions
in the Caribbean. It took
me a week to thaw out.

(Above) With temperatures in the upper 90s taking a refreshing dip in the river was a treat for some of the students.
(At right) Retired Navy Cmdr. Pat Thurman (right) presents NJROTC student Sierra Bollinger of First Coast High School
in Jacksonville with her sailing certificate and a sea cruise ribbon for completing the week-long sailing program.


SAILING:


Students practice on several sizes of

sailboats and learn to safely navigate waters


Cadre student teacher Stephen Millen, who has
been sailing with the class for the past three \ears,
attaches a rudder and tiller to one of the boats.


From Page 4

students learned basic boat han-
dling techniques, boating safety,
weather conditions and sailing ter-
minology. They were also required
to pass a deep-water swim test.
"This class gives them a Type
I sail qualification so they can
go to any marina that rents sail-
boats and check out a boat. Only
two students had any prior sail-
ing experience, so we start with
the basics. We get them out in the
boats for at least six hours each
day so by the time they finish
the class, they know the funda-
mentals of sailing, what the differ-
ent parts of the boat are and how
to tie knots," added Thurman.
"We also work on navigation,
how to steer and how the wind
affects the boats."
"It's a great program for
NJROTC students because they
learn nautical terms and how a
sailboat operates. The Naval
Academy and many ROTC units
in the U.S. teach students nautical
fundamentals so they can build on
those principles. It's a lot of team-
work," he continued.
After the classroom, the stu-
dents headed to the Mulberry
Cove Marina for some hands-on
training. They learned to rig lines
and hoist sails spending much of
the week on the St. Johns River.
"We have a pretty efficient safe-
ty program with five safety boats
manned by experienced instruc-
tors with radios. If a storm pops
up, we can put the students into
the boats and get them back to
shore and tow the sailboats back.
We also keep our students close to
the marina," Thurman stressed.
Students were required to man
each of the different types of
sailboats. Once they learned the
basics, they spent a day learn-
ing controlled sailing by following
one another in circles, in lines,
practicing approaches on other
boats, tacking, jibbing, upward
and downward wind sailing and
man-overboard drills.
This year, the class included
Air Force JROTC students. "We
traded 10 Navy students with the
Air Force, with our group going

Marina.
to the U.S. Air Force Academy
Teen Aviation Camp in Colorado
Springs, Colo. to learn about the
aviation field. In return, we had
10 Air Force students train with
us," stated Thurman.
"Being in the Navy program is
a nice change of pace. I'm used to
learning about aircraft so this has
been a completely new experience.
I've learned about sailing and
think it's cool to be well-round-
ed and learn more about what
other branches of the military are
involved in," said AFJROTC stu-
dent James Peck of Shadow Ridge
High School in Las Vegas.
By the end of each day, the stu-
dents were pretty exhausted and


sunburned, but proud of their
accomplishments.
"It's been a really fun and enjoy-
able class. It's definitely a new
learning experience. I signed up
to get more involved in NJROTC
and learned so much about sailing
- including the names of all the
parts of the boat," said NJROTC
student Jessi Montgomery
of Union Grove High School in
McDonaugh, Ga.
The class ended June 19 with
the students participating in a
graduation ceremony, proud of
their accomplishments, excited
about the friendships they had
made, but happy to be going
home.

Know the rules for official use of government vehicles


By Cmdr. Chuck Lewis
NAS Jacksonville Public Works Officer

What does 'For Official
Use Only' mean? The
definition is: The use of
all Navy owned and controlled
vehicles shall be restricted
to official purposes only. That
means that a person must per-
form travel in their official capac-
ity. This precludes the use of
government vehicles for personal
use. The purpose of the trip must
be related to the performance of
official duties or in connection
with activities conducted under
official authorization.
Many people do not realize that
official use of government vehicles
is not just a regulation or a policy
- it is public law.
Penalties for willfully using,
or authorizing the use of, a gov-
ernment-owned or leased motor
vehicle for other than official pur-
poses, are stipulated in U.S. Code
31, Section 1349. Adverse person-
nel actions, (Public Law 97-258,
Sep 13, 1982) states: "An officer
or employee who willfully uses or
authorizes the use of a passenger
motor vehicle or aircraft owned
or leased by the United States


Government or otherwise violates
Section 1349 shall be suspended
without pay by the head of the
agency. The officer or employee
shall be suspended for at least
one month and when circum-
stances warrant, for a longer peri-
od or summarily removed from
office." ("Passenger motor vehicle"
relative to illegal use, has been
interpreted to mean all types of
automotive vehicles.)
Some examples of misuse of
a government vehicle include
transporting officers or employ-
ees of the government between
their residences and places of


duty/employment. It also means
that we do not have the author-
ity to take a vehicle to lunch, go
through drive through at fast food
eateries or run to the store -
unless purchasing official goods
for the Navy.
Do you know what the "Permis-
sible Operating Distance" (POD)
of a government vehicle is? A one-
way distance of 100 miles has
been selected as a guide to base
permissible operating distanc-
es for motor vehicles. The POD
established for an activity should
be sufficient to support normal
operations. Based on installation


and special conveyance (rent-
Sal vehicles) to official purposes
including transportation to and
from duty sites, lodgings, din-
ing facilities, drugstores, barber
shops, places of worship, cleaning
establishments, and similar places
required for the traveler's subsis-
u tence, health or comfort. However,
Navy regulations state the first
resource of vehicles used in a TDY/
TAD status shall be a commercial
short-term rental vehicle autho-
rized on official TDY/TAD orders.
Most infractions of 'For Official
Photo by staff Use Only' vehicles are not
deliberate. Make sure your co-
experience, a POD shall be estab- workers/employees are aware of
lished that adequately supports how government vehicles may
the installation's motor vehicle be used. Most reports of unoffi-
transportation requirements. For cial use of a government vehicle
transport of material, refer to are from citizens outside of the
NAVSUP Manual, Volume 5, Part government. The reports come in
E. The 100-mile guide shall not be the form of telephone calls, DOD
exceeded without written authori- hotline calls and Congressional
zation and justification signed by inquiries. Remember, you may be

Protect family from recreational water illnesses


Think before leaping

into the swimming pool

From CDC Public Affairs
The skies are mostly blue and hot, steamy sum-
mer days have returned. It's time to break out the
swimsuits, lather on the sunscreen and head to the
closest pool. Swimming and other water-related activi-
ties such as water skiing and boating are excellent ways
to engage in physical activity.
However, it is important to follow basic guidelines to
prevent recreational water illnesses (RWI) that are spread
by swallowing, breathing in the vapors of, or having con-
tact with contaminated water.
Although most water is not contaminated with germs
that cause illness, public swimming pools, water parks,
fountains, lakes, rivers and other bodies of water are
potential sources that can spread germs that cause RWI.
The most common RWI is diarrhea, and it is often
caused by germs such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia,


Norovirus, Shigella, and E. coli. Other common RWI
include skin, ear, respiratory, eye, and wound infections.
Anyone can get RWI, however, children, pregnant
women and people with weakened immune systems are
most at risk.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
in Atlanta, Ga. reports that since the mid-1980s, there
has been a steady increase in outbreaks of diarrhea illness
linked to recreational water with the chlorine-resistant
parasite Cryptosporidium. This germ accounts for over
two-thirds of all pool-associated diarrhea outbreaks.
There are simple steps the public, aquatics staff and
public health officials can take to help keep germs out of
recreational water.
For example, some people mistakenly believe that chlo-
rine immediately kills germs in pools. This misconception
might lead people to do risky things, like swimming while
ill with diarrhea. CDC recommends that pool users follow
the "six steps for healthy swimming" to stop germs from
getting into recreational water and causing illness:
(1) Don't swim when you have diarrhea. (2) Don't swal-
low pool water. (3) Shower with soap before swimming
and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing
diapers. (4) Take your kids on bathroom breaks or check


diapers often. (5) Change diapers in the bathroom or dia-
per-changing area and not at poolside. (6) Wash your chil-
dren thoroughly (especially the rear end) with soap and
water before they go swimming.
When swimming in natural waters, such as lakes, rivers
and oceans, avoid swimming after a heavy rain or near
storm drains. Be aware of signs of pollution that may indi-
cate the presence of disease-causing bacteria.
For more information on the CDC Healthy Swimming
Program, including RWI prevention, call 1-800-CDC-INFO
or visit www.cdc.gov/healthyswimming.
