P-8A pathway to 2013
By Doug Abbotts
Naval Air Systems Command
The U.S. Navy and Boeing unveiled
the next-generation maritime patrol
and reconnaissance aircraft, the P-8A
Poseidon, during a rollout ceremony July 30
at Boeing's manufacturing facility in Renton,
"This is a tremendous day to recognize the
outstanding efforts of the U.S. Navy, Boeing
and the entire industry team on a job extremely
well done," said Rear Adm. Bill Moran, com-
mander, Patrol Reconnaissance Group.
"It has been more than 40 years since the
maritime patrol community has seen a new air-
craft. Delivery of this aircraft cannot come soon
enough," said Rear Adm. Moran.
Boeing was awarded a contract in 2004 to
deliver five test planes. This acquisition phase
provides three flight test aircraft, one full-scale
static loads test airframe, and one full-scale
fatigue test airframe.
Rear Adm. Moran added that the aircraft's
greater situational awareness, open systems
architecture and higher operating altitude will
bring a greater punch to the fight, across all
warfare mission areas, and will be a significant
"The P-8A Poseidon program is an outstand-
ing example of evolutionary acquisition at work.
We have established a solid baseline for initial
operational capability, while concurrently mak-
ing upgrade increments for future insertion
as technology matures," said Maritime Patrol
and Reconnaissance Aircraft Program Manager
Capt. Mike Moran.
"The team has worked hard to stay on sched-
ule and within cost in this developmental
effort. We all should be extremely proud of the
According to Capt. Moran, five test aircraft
are in various stages of assembly and ground
test. Two of the flight test aircraft have already
successfully flown as part of a Boeing system
flight check process. Testing on the static loads
airframe is underway and the Navy will begin
formal flight tests later this year.
The P-8A Poseidon will replace the P-3C Orion
as the Navy's land-based submarine hunter. It
will carry out the same missions as the Orion,
but is being built with significant growth poten-
tial, advanced mission systems, software and
Poseidon will also encompass a modern inter-
face, referred to as an open systems architec-
ture that allows current and future technologies
to be interchanged in a plug-and-play manner.
The Navy plans to purchase 117 Poseidon
aircraft. In April, the Australian Department
of Defense signed an agreement with the U.S.
Department of Defense to join a cooperative
partnership in the development of follow-on
capabilities to be added to the Poseidon after it
enters the Fleet in 2013.

One of four specially modified Lockheed WP-3 Orions assigned to Weather Reconnaissance Squadron (VW) 4 at NAS
Jacksonville. Featuring a rotating parabolic antenna mounted in a radome beneath the fuselage, the WP-3 could view
more than 250 nautical miles in a single sweep and to reveal the shape and scope of a hurricane's eyewall or sur-
rounding storms. (Inset) VW-4 was disestablished at NAS Jax April 30, 1975. Established Nov. 15, 1952 as VJ-2 and
redesignated VW-4 in 1953, it was the Navy's last squadron specifically detailed for hurricane reconnaissance. During
its more than 30 years of service, VW-4 contributed greatly to meteorological science, oceanographic research, the
National Weather Service and the Naval Weather Service Command.
Men in charge wear women'

When I was growing up, my
Navy dad held a number
of significant positions. He
was the commander of a squadron,
then an aircraft carrier, and later a
carrier group. I knew he was the boss
to many, but he was just Dad to me.
His position never stopped me from
coming up to him at official events,
tugging on his shirt sleeve and saying,
"Dad, can I please have 50 cents for
the vending machine? Pretty please?"
Other people called him "Sir." I called
him Dad, or, when I was in trouble,
When I saw Dad in his uniform, I
wondered what his co-workers would
think about him mowing our grass
on a Saturday afternoon in the same
clothes he had worn since I was a
I think he must have had several
sets: Faded tan corduroy pants and a
red VF- 142 "Diamondbacks" T-shirt.
I wished all the people in Dad's
command could have seen him when
he sat on my bike and broke it, or the
time he tried to swing on my playset
and plummeted with the rubber seat
to the ground.
And then there was his habit of tak-
ing a box emptied of soda cans and
putting it on his head to be like a
robot. My guess is that the people
who worked with Dad would not know
whether to laugh or look away if they
saw these things.
There is something about people
who are in charge. Our perception of

When I first saw
Folsom, Calif. on
a map, I didn't
think much of it. As far as
I knew, Folsom was a pris-
on, right? My mind imme-
diately conjured up images
of Johnny Cash singing, "I
walk the line."
I was traveling home
from Sacramento one day
and thought it would be fun
to drive through Folsom
and take a picture in front
of the prison for my scrap-
I was in for a surprise.
There is a famous prison
in Folsom where Johnny

And apparently it is the same way
outside of the military. At the gym, I
take several classes from an instruc-
tor named Scott.
One day, Scott's wife was in class
and she commented on how differ-
ent he seemed in that setting. I had
assumed he always wore bike shorts,
cycling shoes and racing shirts, even
when he was at home with the kids
on Sunday. In fact, was he ever in
any other setting? Didn't he live at
the gym just as my teachers always
lived at school?
Recently I had the opportunity to
view my own husband in this "para-
digm shift." Dustin is commander of
the reserve center in Bangor, Maine.
That makes him the boss to people
who work at the Navy Operational
Support Center (NOSC) as well as
the reservists who come there for drill
Last week, Dustin's command had
a family preparedness event, where
reservists and their families can get
the information they need to be ready
for deployment. I first watched with
indifference as Dustin filled his role
as commanding officer. He's just
Dustin to me.
Then, just like Scott's wife at the
gym, I looked at Dustin from a differ-
ent perspective. It was as if someone
had taken my husband and photo-
shopped him in to an exotic setting.
I recognized his face and his clothes,
but his demeanor was totally differ-
ent. It was a bit unsettling to see my
husband of ten years as someone who
didn't need my help.
Then came Wednesday. My neigh-
bor, Tony, and I were standing in
the backyard watching our kids play,
when Dustin arrived from work. His
smile was ear to ear. He had all the
giddy eagerness of a youngster who is
about to tell his parents good news. I
noticed that he had already changed
into civilian clothes and was wearing
shorts with ankle socks -and Crocs.
"Now I can be cool like you guys,"
Dustin said. He stuck his left foot out
for us to see. "I bought myself some
Tony was speechless. I was con-
fused. The Crocs on Dustin's feet
were Mary Janes, or the female ver-

Tony still hadn't found words.

your money is protected all that you need to do is look to
see if it's FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation)
insured or NCUA (National Credit Union Administration)
insured. If your bank or credit union goes out of business,
either group will give back the money you had in your

option for your savings account.

Officer Capt. Rich
Fite celebrated the
end of his "Pro's Nest" tour
July 10 with a ceremonial
"wetting down" at the con-
clusion of his last flight in
a P-3C Orion.
The training flight
departed NAS Jacksonville
at 8:45 a.m. on a beautiful
Florida day and proceeded
to Gainesville Regional
Airport for pilot and co-pilot
From there, the crew
departed east and proceed-
ed north over the ocean. It
was here that the flight sta-
tion (Lt. Cmdr. Chris Artis,
Lt. Cmdr. Joe Kovacocy and
Carrillo) gave Fite (an FRS
Instructor Naval Flight
Officer) his final "Honorary
Flight Engineer" evalua-
tion. Fite passed with flying
colors no discrepancies
After practicing in-flight
emergency drills, the air-
crew conducted a VFR
River Run approach back
to NAS Jacksonville, with a
flawless touchdown at 10:15
The mission culminated
in front of the FRS han-
gar with a thorough soak-
ing of Fite by the NAS
Jacksonville Crash Crew
- followed by a cake-cutting
ceremony. Fite's final flight
brought his total flight time
to 2,639.7 hours.
When asked about the

As veterans get ready for the new

pleased they will enjoy the benefits of the
new GI Bill.
"August 1 is a proud day for us," said
David Rehbein, national commander of the
nation's largest veterans service organiza-

efits in the Post-9/11 Veterans Education

As the Global War on Terrorism pro-
gressed, it became clear that National

serving in large numbers during the con-
flicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, were not
being compensated as generously as their
It was time for a new GI Bill. The
American Legion and Congress, among
others, set about creating one. Longtime
Legionnaire Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) built
a bipartisan coalition in the Senate. The
final bill included a provision that allowed
for the transferability of benefits to family
members, an additional benefit supported
by The American Legion. President George
W. Bush signed the bill on June 30, 2008.

education programs for veterans, but aug-
ments them. Depending upon individual
needs and eligibilities, benefits of the older
Montgomery GI Bill, the Montgomery GI
Bill/Selected Reserve, and the Reserve
Educational Assistance Program (REAP)
are still available as well.
The American Legion explains veter-
ans' educational benefits in great detail at
"The new GI Bill is a bill worthy of its
name," Rehbein said. "While we believe
this is a great benefit to America's veterans
and their families, The American Legion
will monitor the administration of it and
ensure that the benefits that these veter-
ans so richly deserve are not diminished.
If any veteran has difficulty accessing
their GI Bill benefits, we at The American
Legion want to know about it."
With a current membership of 2.5 million
wartime veterans, The American Legion
was founded in 1919 on the four pillars of
a strong national security, veterans affairs,
Americanism, and the mentoring of youth.
Legionnaires work for the betterment of
their communities through more than
14,000 posts across the nation.

Navy rolls out
Joint Strike Fighter
By MC2(SW) Rebekah Blowers
Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs
The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO)
welcomed the Navy's first Joint
Strike Fighter, the F-35C Lightning
II, to the fleet in a July 28 ceremony at
the Lockheed Martin F-35 Production
Operations and Integration Testing Lab
in Fort Worth, Texas.
The F-35C is the Navy's first stealth
fighter and will enable the Navy to
decrease the time that elapses from threat
recognition to threat response at sea. The
aircraft possesses uncompromised carrier
suitability and low-maintenance stealth
materials designed for long-term durability
in the carrier environment.
CNO Adm. Gary Roughead said this air-
craft adds tremendous capability to the fleet.
"Our Sailors will never be in a fair fight
because this airplane will top anything
that comes its way. It will give our Sailors
and pilots the tactical and technical advan-
tage in the skies and it will relieve our air-
craft as they age out," Roughead said.
Roughhead said the pace of operations
has not been easy on Sailors, Soldiers,
Airmen, and Marines, nor on the ships
and aircraft they rely upon. The F-35 Joint
Strike Fighter is essential to addressing
the Navy's, and more importantly, the

nation's strike fighter needs.
"It is most exciting for me to think about
the young men and women who look to
this uniform, who look to naval aviation
and see a fulfillment in their lives and an
excitement in their lives that is unmatched
by any other profession in the world,"
"I thank you for what you have done and
thank you for what you are going to do. It
is indeed a great honor to be here."
The F-35C is on schedule to meet the
Navy's initial operational capability in
2015. It combines stealth with supersonic
speed and high agility. The Lightning II
employs the most powerful and compre-
hensive sensor package ever incorporated
into a fighter.

teams of Navy culinary specialists July 30 to showcase their gas-
S tronomic talent. The teams came from naval installations across
the Southeast Region with Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba tak-
ing home top honors.
Food Network "Dinner Impossible" Chef Robert Irvine was among the
panel of professional chefs who judged the teams based on their work
habits, utilization of ingredients, presentation and of course, how their
"The Navy does such an amazing job of training their culinary special-
ists and putting them through the American Culinary Federation pro-
gram," said Irvine. "Anyone who comes out of the service has a discipline;
they have the focus and they have the training. If someone came up to
me and said I was a culinary specialist in the Navy, he or she would be
hired on the spot."
Prior to the competition, Chef David Bearl from the First Coast
Technical Institute School of Culinary Arts gave the teams some guide-
lines to follow.
"You will need to demonstrate four classical cuts, a vinaigrette and at
least two sauces," said Bearl. "We will also be looking at your sanitation,
safety and organization skills. We don't want to see you wasting any-
thing. If you waste food, you waste money."
The competition began at 7:30 a.m. when competitors learned that the
'mystery proteins' were fresh shrimp and beef tenderloin. The six teams,
including Naval Station Mayport, Naval Air Station Jacksonville, NSB
Kings Bay, Ga., Naval Hospital Jacksonville, Naval Station Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba and Naval Construction Battalion Center Gulfport, were given
30 minutes to create their menus. Then they had three hours to prepare
a salad, appetizer and entr6e for each of the four judges, as well as for the
Winn Dixie Executive Chef Robert Tulko served on the judging panel.
"One of the entr6e meats is a beef tenderloin. You use different cuts of
this meat for different dishes. So I want to see them using it appropri-
ately," said Tulko. "We're looking for creativity. Teams must take these
ingredients and making something special."
After all the dishes were judged, Irvine announced the winners, who
were presented awards by Commander, Navy Region Southeast Rear
Adm. Townsend Alexander and NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer

An All Hands Evolution (Part 2 of 3)
By Chaplain (It.) Tom
Part 1 of this series
focused on identi-
fying the warning
signs of suicide that can
save a shipmate's life.
Knowing our people and
knowing the warning signs
are only the first step.
In Part 2, we learn more
about the Navy's ACT
Some of the material in
this article has been pre-
pared for National Suicide
Prevention Week and the
Department of Defense
Task Force on Suicide
The Navy's Ask-Care-
Treat (ACT) model is
extremely helpful in pre-
venting fatalities, but the
model is useless without
The hallmark of a suc-
cessful suicide prevention
program is active partici-
pation of all hands, even
engaging family, friends,
The tragedy of suicide is
that too often the warning
signs were either missed or
ignored. The K.I.S.S. meth-
od of (keep it secret stupid)
is the greatest barrier to
the first key to recognizing
1. Take it seriously.
Myth: "The people who
talk about it don't do it."
Studies have found that
more than 75 percent of
suicides did things in the
weeks or months prior to
their deaths to indicate
to others that they were
in deep despair. Anyone
expressing suicidal feelings
needs immediate attention.
Ilvlh "Anyone who tries
to kill themselves has got
to be crazy." Perhaps 10
percent of suicidal people
are psychotic or have delu-
sional beliefs about reality.
Most suicidal people suffer
from the depression but
many depressed people ade-
quately manage their daily
affairs. The absence of "cra-
ziness" does not mean the
absence of suicide risk.
Myth: "Those problems
weren't enough to commit
suicide over." Sometimes
what seems to be a small
problem by an outsider, dis-
counts the impact it has on
a particular individual. In
the same way, it is difficult
to fully understand how dif-
ferent events and experi-
ences act as "triggers" for
certain individuals. The old
saying here is true, "It is
not how bad the problem is,
but how badly it's hurting
the person who has it."
2. Suicidal behavior is a
cry for help.
Myth: "If someone is
going to kill himself, noth-
ing can stop him." The fact
that a person is still alive is
sufficient proof that part of
him wants to remain alive.
It is perhaps the great-
est mark of friendship for
another person to tell you
how they are truly feeling.
It demonstrates the trust
and compassion anoth-
er individual sees in you.
Sometimes an individual
will share a sense of being
or at the end of their rope;
the individual may not be
able to say "I'm feeling sui-
cidal." That is why the first
step of intervention is to
ask because if we per-
ceive that the threat of sui-
cide is real, we should test

Myth: "Talking about

the idea suicide is con-
stantly in the media. You
are showing him that you
care, that you take him
seriously, and that you are
willing to let him share his
pain with you. You are giv-

get help sooner rather than
Suicide prevention is
not a last-minute activity.
Unfortunately, suicidal peo-
ple are afraid that trying
to get help may bring them
more pain being told they
are stupid, foolish, sinful,
or manipulative as well
as rejection, punishment,
suspension from school,

there are no
magic words. If you are con-
cerned, your voice and man-
ner will show it. Give them
relief from being alone with
their pain. Let them know
you are glad they turned to
you. If the Sailor's words or
actions scare you, tell him or
her. If you're worried or don't
know what to do, say so.
5. If a person is suicidal
- do not leave the person
6. Create a safe environ-
ment. If the person is sui-
cidal and there is a "means"
present, (i.e. a weapon,
encourage them to separate
themselves from the means
and offer to take them to a
safe place, such as the cha-
pel or emergency room.
7. Urge professional help.
Your chaplains are here for
you. If something should
happen after hours, the
Quarterdeck can connect
you with the duty chaplain.
Chaplains provide a level of
confidentiality that allows
individuals to decompress
without fear of reprisal.
Medical professionals are
also available through both
the mental health clinic and
NAS Jax Naval Hospital
For individuals who
have a general sense of
being overwhelmed, but
do not feel suicidal, coun-
seling professionals at the
NAS Jax Fleet and Family
Service Center can help.
Others prefer to seek coun-
seling with an outside pro-
fessional through Military
One Source, or through
Tricare. Remember, there
are many different treat-
ment options-let the per-
son know you care and
want to maintain contact.
8. No secrets.
It is the part of the per-
son that is afraid of more
pain that says "Don't tell
anyone." It is the other part
of that person that wants
to stay alive that tells you
about it. Respond to that
part of the person and per-
sistently seek out a mature
and compassionate person
to whom you can refer the
situation. Remember, sui-
cide prevention is an "all
hands" evolution. You can
intervene in a difficult situ-
ation with tact and respon-
sibility that "walks with an
individual" to the appro-
priate referral. Once the
hand-off is accomplished,

spoke of several new developments occurring on base. "We continue on with about
$350 million worth of construction. Three of five squadrons from NAS Brunswick have
moved down here. We also have five HSM squadrons moving in as the rest of our HS
squadrons move up to Norfolk. We are working on tearing down the old base hous-
ing and will soon have 216 brand new homes, which is a great thing for our Sailors
and their families," Scorby said. Some other developments discussed were a new child
development center, P-8 training facility, renovations to the base gym, and a new Zone
complex. Scorby also gave all Sailors and civilians several safety reminders regarding
hurricane season, motorcycle use and the danger of texting while driving.

VP-30 Public Affairs Officer
VP-30 hosted 48 cadets July 22
from the Naval Junior Reserve
Officer Training Corps (NJROTC)
Warhawk Battalion at Henry County High
School in McDonough, Ga. Instructed by
retired Marine Corps Gunnery Sgt. Jim
Lewis, the cadets enjoyed a first-hand
look at the mission of the Maritime Patrol
and Reconnaissance (MPR) community in
The visit kicked off with an introduction
to the strategic and tactical challenges of
today's MPR community. After they toured
a "Pro's Nest" P-3C Orion, the students
visited maintenance and administrative
spaces including an interactive demon-
stration of aircrew survival gear.
The cadets were able to try on survival
vests, helmets, exposure suits and oxygen
masks while learning the importance of
safety in naval aviation.
The NJROTC program emphasizes citi-
zenship and leadership development, while
laying the foundation for personal respon-
sibility and providing a sense of accom-
plishment for completing a challenging
curriculum and participation in competi-
tions such as drill, rifle, academics and

ing with them in the future.

As the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) approaches NS Mayport July 28,
two of seven SH-60 Seahawks assigned to the HS-5 "Nightdippers" lift off for a "river run" to
their homecoming with family and friends at NAS Jacksonville.

From Page 1
"I think everyone had a fulfilling deploy-
ment. It was challenging at times and dif-
ficult to operate where we were at in the
North Arabian Sea," said Leavitt.
"The temperature was extremely hot, the
humidity was extremely high, and Sailors
on the flight deck routinely worked in a
heat index of up to 120 degrees. But they
worked very hard and should be very proud
of what we did."
Ships and aircraft of the Eisenhower
Carrier Strike Group also played vital roles
in counter-piracy operations including
USS Bainbridge's (DDG 96) direct role in
the rescue of Richard Phillips, the captain
of the cargo ship Maersk Alabama.
The Nightdippers departed NS Norfolk,
Va. in February with Carrier Strike
Group 8 and shortly after entering the
Mediterranean Sea made a port visit to
Marseilles, France. HS-5 proved to be a
valuable asset when the sea state became
too dangerous for liberty ferries to trans-
port individuals back to the ship.
The Nightdippers quickly got their heli-
copters airborne and kept them airborne
for over 10 hours to airlift more than 360
essential personnel back on board so the
carrier could get underway. The Mighty
Ike's transit through the Mediterranean
Sea brought the opportunity for an air
power demonstration for many of the
French distinguished visitors abroad the
ship. Carrier Air Wing 7 put on a fantas-
tic show with the Nightdippers providing
search and rescue during the demonstra-
tion as well as placing targets so the
fixed wing aircraft could drop ordnance at
a safe distance from the carrier.
After transiting through the Suez Canal,
Carrier Strike Group 8 relieved the USS
Theodore Roosevelt strike group and
assumed the watch for Operation Enduring
Freedom in the Arabian Sea. While operat-
ing off the coast of Pakistan, HS-5 flew
more than 600 sorties, totaling over 1,500
hours. The flights consisted of plane guard,
logistics, anti-terrorism/force protection,
maritime interdiction operations and spe-
cial operations training with explosive ord-
nance disposal personnel. The daily grind
of oppressive heat and humidity made
operating difficult -but the squadron's
sense of purpose was bolstered knowing
that our operations were contributing to
saving lives on the ground in Afghanistan.
Even with their busy schedules, squad-
ron personnel were able to make great
professional strides. Forty-six individu-
als qualified as enlisted aviation warfare

Photo by Clark Pierce
Families and friends wait outside Hangar 116 under a bright sun for the first sign of seven
HS-5 helicopters approaching NAS Jacksonville July 28.
These missions required the squadron to
investigate, interrogate and, if necessary,
intercept any contacts which may pose a
potential hazard to the aircraft carrier dur-
ing its transit to and from port.
After being relieved by USS Ronald
Reagan (CVN-76), the Eisenhower Strike
Group headed back through the Suez to
the cool waters of the Mediterranean. On
its return home, HS-5 had the opportu-
nity to work with several other nations
during North Atlantic Council at Sea
Day an extremely large afloat confer-
ence with distinguished visitors from 30
member countries and military staff of the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The
squadron assisted in transferring nearly
100 distinguished guests from seven other
ships to USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. The
Nightdippers were individually recognized
for the success of the event by their flaw-
less execution of each transfer and the pro-
fessionalism of their aircrews.
HS-7 is assigned three HH-60H strike
warfare and four SH-60F anti-submarine
configured helicopters. The squadron has
206 personnel consisting of pilots and air-
crewmen, maintenance technicians and
administrative support personnel.
The Nightdippers have a very short
turn around, and are scheduled to deploy
again in early 2010. Until then they will
enjoy this time home with their family and
friends who have supported them these
last five months.
This is the final homecoming for the
squadron at NAS Jacksonville. HS-5 will
be changing duty stations to NS Norfolk,
Va. after next year's cruise, as part of
consolidation within the Helicopter Sea
The squadron transferred to NAS
Jacksonville from Quonset Point, R.I. in
1973. Since then HS-5 has transitioned
from the SH-3 Sea King to the current
models, the SH-60F/HH-60H Seahawk,
and within the next three years will transi-
tion to the SH-60S "Sierra" Seahawk.

specialists, 13 qualified as enlisted sur-

qualified as helicopter second pilot. The
squadron also promoted 11 enlisted mem-
bers and one officer during the five-month
The strike group also scheduled some
much deserved port visits to: Dubai, United
Arab Emirates; Manama and Bahrain, as
well as Lisbon, Portugal on the way home.
During each port visit the Nightdippers
provided Mighty Ike with mission-essen-
tial anti-terrorism/force protection support.

Graham burial at sea
By CW04 Stephen Lee
This past Father's Day, Boat
Division 101 of Maritime
Squadron Ten (headquartered
at NAS Jacksonville) was hon-
ored to conduct a burial at sea
for retired SKCM(SS) Richard
His son, BM1 Rodney Graham,
a member of MSRON-10 Boat
Division 101, laid his father's
cremated remains to rest off the
coast of Naval Station Mayport
at position 30' 21.05N and 81'
The ceremony was conducted
onboard two of the division's 34-
foot Navy patrol boats and com-
menced with the shifting of col-
ors to half mast. Cmdr. George
Tsangaris, commanding officer of
Boat Division 101, conducted the
burial service, and Cmdr. Murray
Fink, a former commanding offi-
cer of the unit, presented the
eulogy commemorating Graham's
long and fruitful life. At approxi-
mately 10:20 a.m., BM1 Graham
released his father's remains on a
floating floral wreath along with
his father's favorite U.S. Navy
ball cap, that read, "Proudly
served in WW II, Korea, and the
During the committal,
BMC(SW) Christopher Kaliontgis,
the Chief of the Honor Guard,
directed the 21-gun salute and

The ceremony concluded following
the formal presentation of the flag
by BMC(SW) Dewayne Mack to
BM1 Graham, after encasing the
flag with three of the fired shells
from the honorary salute. In
attendance of the ceremony were
BM1 Graham's wife, Maryella,
the ceremony participants and
other members of Boat Division
Rather than mourn the passing
of Graham, those in attendance
celebrated his remarkable life,
and contributions to our Navy
and to our nation. Enlisting in the
Navy just months after the end
of World War II, Graham began
his career in the surface fleet
with assignment to USS Owens
(DD 776). He was then assigned
aboard USS New Jersey (BB 62)
where he participated in deploy-
ments of the battleship in sup-
port of Korean War operations,
to include Naval gunfire support

He was then assigned to the
supply department of the Nautilus
Program, spending four years to
help support nuclear power to
the Navy's submarine fleet. After
receiving supply and submarine
instruction, Graham was a plank
owner aboard USS James Monroe
(SSBN 622) and later served as a
plank owner aboard USS George
Bancroft (SSBN 643).
From 1966 -68, he served as

in the Team's participation in the

sons Ralph, Richard, and Rodney,
daughter, Sharon, and five grand-
children Steffie, Michael, Ricky,

Skin cancer on the eyelids surprisingly common
How to detect,
treat and prevent it
From The Skin Cancer Foundation
Skin cancers of the eyelid, including
basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squa-
mous cell carcinoma (SCC), and
melanoma, account for five to 10 percent
of all skin cancers. While only a small
number are lethal, eyelid skin cancers can
cause significant tissue damage, blindness
and can spread into the nasal and orbital
cavities (the area behind the eye).
"Eyelid skin cancer is not something
most people think about," said C. William
Hanke, MD, senior vice president of The
Skin Cancer Foundation. "With their thin,
delicate structures, the eyes and surround-
ing areas are particularly prone to cancers.
And, it's an area people often forget to
protect from the sun," he said in a July 23
Most eyelid skin cancers occur on the
lower lid, which receives the most sun
exposure. Approximately 90 percent of all
eyelid cancers are BCCs, five percent or
more are SCCs and two percent are mela-
Early detection is essential, but is often
difficult to achieve because eyelid tumors
often grow under the skin for years before
presenting on the surface. Early warning
a lump or bump that frequently bleeds
or does not disappear
persistent red eye or inflammation of
the eyelids that does not respond to medi-
newly acquired flat or elevated pig-
mented lesions that have irregular borders
unexplained loss of eyelashes
Treating skin cancers of the eyelids poses
special challenges. Eyelids are composed
of extremely specialized mobile skin. To
remove BCCs and SCCs, Mohs micrograph-
ic surgery is highly effective. The affected
tissue is removed layer by layer, with each
thin layer studied under the microscope
until a cancer-free layer is reached.
Fortunately, preventing eyelid skin can-
cer can be easy and fashionable. Today
there are sunscreens and moisturizers spe-
cially formulated for the eye area, which
makes wearing an SPF 15 or higher sun-
screen daily around the eyes much easier.
In addition, sunglasses have become the
ultimate fashion accessory. They not only
make a chic fashion statement, but protect
your eyes from the sun's harmful ultra-
violet (UV) rays. When it comes to select-
ing the most flattering style, face shape
is probably the most important feature to
keep in mind. Eyewear experts suggest fol-
lowing these simple guidelines:
Oval face: square or cat's eye frames
Round face: rectangular frames
Square face: rounder oval cat's-eye
Triangular, or heart-shaped face:
frames with a straight, flat top
The boomer deduction
By Lt. j.g. Lea Tietje, JAGC
Service members who are assigned
to a two-crew submarine are eli-
gible to claim certain deductions on
their income taxes due to their unique
situation. For those not in the submarine
community, Ohio-class submarines (aka
"boomers") are manned by two separate
crews, the blue crew and the gold crew.
When one crew is out to sea, the other
is on shore duty. Under section 162 of
the Internal Revenue Code taxpayers are
allowed to deduct ordinary and necessary
expenses, including traveling expenses
while away from home in the pursuit of a
trade or business.
Boomers are eligible for this deduction
because of the two-crew rotation. In 1967,
the IRS ruled that a naval officer assigned
to a ship or submarine that has eating
and living facilities is entitled to claim the
vessel as "home" for the purposes of deduc-
tions under section 162. The IRS recently
clarified that this ruling applies to both
officers and enlisted service members.
For the boomers, when the gold crew
goes out to sea, the blue crew remains on
shore away from their "home." This means
the shore crew is entitled to deduct travel-
ing expenses for work since they are away
from home, hence the "boomer deduction."
These travel expenses can include travel
to and from the shore duty location to the
home of the service member. Other deduct-
ible expenses can be utilities in the home.
Now, no one wants to be audited by the
IRS. A service member claiming the boom-
er deduction must be certain that they are
only claiming the amount of deductions
they are entitled to.
It is important to remember that the
deduction is only available to the service
member, not their family. For example, if
claiming a deduction for the amount of the
electric bill, a service member who resides
with their family can only deduct their
share of the bill and not the entire utility
Additionally, the deduction can only
be claimed for un-reimbursed expenses,
thus rent or mortgage payments cannot
be deducted if a service member is reim-
bursed for those expenses through their
BAH. Also, if the sub is in dry dock, crew-
members assigned to the sub cannot claim
the boomer deduction during that time.
If you believe you qualify for this tax
deduction, but want some help wad-
ing through the tax forms, utilize the
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program
(VITA) which is offered on many bases.
VITA volunteers may be able to help you
determine if you qualify for this deduction.
If VITA is unable to assist you, you can
also go to irs.gov and contact an IRS repre-
sentative who is knowledgeable about this
The author of this article wishes to
acknowledge the informational paper writ-
ten by George F. Reilly, Navy Tax Counsel,
as a valuable starting point to understand-
ing this complex topic.

After the face shape has been deter-
mined, there are five important steps to
finding a great protective pair of sunglass-
1. Select sunglasses with adequate UV
protection. Sunglasses should block 99 to
100 percent of UVA and UVB radiation.
UV-blocking lenses will also reduce eye
strain due to squinting on bright, sunny
2. Pick the best lens color for your
purposes: Gray reduces brightness with-
out distorting color, brown creates greater
color contrast, providing better visibility on
solid-color surfaces. Yellow is good for both
contrast and depth perception.
3. Choose a polarized lens to reduce the
glare of light reflected on the water or the
light you face while driving.
4. Make sure sunglasses fit comfort-
ably over your ears and do not slip down
the bridge of your nose, which would allow
more UV rays in. In terms of materials,
plastic frames can come in rich, complex
colors and typically are easy to adjust for
a custom fit. Metal frames give a thinner
profile, a lighter look and are usually very
5. Select a sufficient lens size to shield
the eyes, eyelids and surrounding areas.
The more skin you cover, the better.
Wraparound styles with a comfortable,
close fit and UV protective side shields are
Lenses that absorb and block UV are
one of the strongest defenses against eye
and eyelid damage, so it's best to wear
sunglasses year-round whenever you are
out in the sun. And remember, fashion
and high price do not guarantee safety. A
recent review of 32 pairs of inexpensive
sunglasses showed that they were all effec-
tive in filtering out UVR.
Finally, hats are also an important sun-
protective strategy. Wearing a hat with at
least a 3-inch brim all around can block
as much as half of all UVB rays from your
eyes and shield your eyelids.
