CNRSE takes energy

conservation seriously

New policy

and goals set

From Naval Facilities and
Engineering Command
Southeast Public Affairs
At the first meeting of his
energy council Aug. 21,
Rear Adm. Townsend
Alexander, commander, Navy
Region Southeast (CNRSE),
signed the new energy instruc-
tion that establishes the ener-
gy policy for installations.
CNRSE will lead by example
with a comprehensive and
robust energy strategy to meet
all new laws and policies set
forth for Navy Energy and
Water Conservation.
"Leadership in conserva-

suitable technologies in energy
and water conservation," said
Alexander. "As a culture, our
behavior will have to change."
Legislation passed in the

Energy Independence and
Security Act of 2007 (EISA
2007) requires a 30 percent
reduction in energy intensity
by 2015, a 20 percent reduction

in water intensity by 2015, and
an annual audit of one quarter
of the facilities identified as the
top 75 percent of energy con-
suming facilities.
The National Defense
Authorization Act of 2007
states that 25 percent of electric
consumption must come from
renewable sources. Executive
Order 13423 for Strengthening
Federal Environmental,
Energy, and Transportation
Management mandates that
15 percent of existing Federal
buildings incorporate sustain-
able practices by 2015.
Additional policies detail
guiding principles for sustain-
able design and establish a
LEED Green Building Rating
System for incorporating sus-
tainable principles into new
facilities as well as major reno-
vations on existing structures.

FRCSE returns Seahawk to service
By Edmond Galluccio
FRCSE H 60 Strategic Business Team

A n HH-60H Seahawk
that suffered serious
damage in Balad, Iraq
in October 2008, recently com-
pleted its first flight after an
extensive nine-month repair
process at Fleet Readiness
Center Southeast (FRCSE).
Upon successfully complet-
ing its series of functional
check flights, the aircraft was
returned to the "Red Wolves"
of Helicopter Sea Combat
Squadron (HSC) 84 based at
NS Norfolk, Va.
The accident in Iraq involved
two HH-60H aircraft engaged
in night operations support-
ing the joint special operations
command headquartered at
Balad. One aircraft was on the
ground turning when a second
aircraft came in too close and
clipped the tail pylon of the first
aircraft with its main rotors.
Only after sunrise could an
initial assessment of the dam-
age be established. The "sta-
tionary" aircraft sustained
extensive tail pylon dam-
age that would require a total

as the right horizontal stabi-
lizer of the tail pylon was also
damaged when the aircraft

Cmdr. Allen McCoy of the Naval Safety
Center discusses the statistics of mishap
fatalities of Sailors and Marines during
fiscal year 2009 at the NAS Jax Safety
Stand Down Sept. 3. "This summer, 18
Sailors and 10 Marines have lost their
lives due to mishaps. Many just made
bad decisions," he said.

Safety stand down

promotes awareness

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO

NAS Jax conducted a safe-
ty stand down to remind
Sailors and civilian employ-
ees to make smart decisions to stay
safe over the Labor Day weekend
at the VP-30 auditorium Sept. 3.
Coordinated by the base safety office,
the event promoted traffic and recre-
ational safety awareness.
Several guest speakers addressed
the audience discussing driving safe-
ty issues and water safety.
"The Department of the Navy has
mandated a goal of zero preventable
mishaps. Many people will debate
whether that's a realistic goal and our
answer is 'yes,' because preventable
means you can do things to avoid mis-
haps," said Cmdr. Allen McCoy of the
Naval Safety Center, who presented
several videos and slides to reiterate
his statements. "The goal here is not
to say what you can and can't do on
your own time, we just want you to
understand the consequences, make
the right decisions, use safety gear
and enjoy the activity."
McCoy continued, "When we talk
about preventing mishaps, we have to
understand why they happen. Every
reportable mishap within the Navy
and Marine Corps is investigated.
These safety investigations determine
what happened, the cause factors and
identify what might help this type of
accident to be avoided."
He also presented several cur-
rent statistics on mishaps pertain-
ing to the Navy and Marine Corps.
"We have actually had a decrease in
fatalities this year with 121 in fiscal
year 2009. Of these, 18 Sailors and
10 Marines died this summer. Last
year, we had 178 Sailors and Marines
lose their lives due to mishaps and
of these, 57 were motorcycle-related.
This year, we've had 24 fatalities due
to motorcycle accidents. In 2007, we
lost 187 members. Our statistics are
improving, but our goal is still zero,"
added McCoy.
McCoy stressed that risk manage-
ment should be part of everyone's
day-to-day activities. The four basic
principles of risk management are:
anticipate and manage risk by plan-
ning, accept no unnecessary risks,
accept risk when benefits outweigh
the costs and make risk decisions at
the right level.
"More than 85 percent of all mis-
haps are attributable to human factor
failures. So, don't accept unnecessary
risks, understand the consequences of

Nothing says unhappiness like a gift shop

By Sarah Smiley

It was a lovely day spent at a min-
iature railway village and muse-
um with my children and parents
during their annual summer visit.
The weather was perfect, and the
location offered something for every-
Dad enjoyed a classic cars dis-
play and historical train facts. Mom
browsed antiques. The kids saw a
model train being built, the skeleton
of its tracks and plaster mountains
still unpainted and fully exposed as if
through X-ray. We even took a train
ride, where a cool breeze blew our
hair back and especially delighted
Lindell, 2.
On the way out of the railway vil-
lage, however, we met a familiar foe:
the gift store. Dustin's philosophy is
that families go into gift stores feel-
ing jubilant and expectant, but leave
in tears and with empty pockets. For
him, gift stores are not happy plac-
es. Everything is overpriced, and the
shelves are stocked with things our
kids normally would not care about,
but now, just because the pencil or
backpack bears the name of the place
we've just visited, they act as if leav-
ing empty handed will be as painful
as chewing off their left arm. Even
the name -- gift shop -- is deceiving. It
implies that someone will give you a
complimentary gift for having visited
their park.
Ordinarily, to avoid this misery,
Dustin and I bypass gift stores. But
businesses have wised up to this
largely universal tactic, and now
many of them force you through the
gift store in order to exit the park.
I wouldn't put it past Dustin to live
at the National Zoo indefinitely
rather than go through the exit that

is only accessible via the gift shop.
When he finally is forced into a gift
shop, Dustin's look of horror suggests
that he doesn't see rows upon rows of
stuffed bears and pencils with feath-
ers stuck on the end, but instead,
angry merchandise that sneers and
spits at him as he passes. It's as if
all the nicknacks are saying, "And
you thought admission was expen-
sive; wait until you see how much
it's gonna cost you to get out of this
On this occasion, however, while
visiting the railway museum with
my parents, Dustin and I reluctantly
agreed to take our begging children
into the gift shop, but only because
Grandma was paying. As much as I
tease, I have to hand it to Dustin; it
did seem like there was a fun vac-
uum on either side of the entrance
that sucked away all of our good
humor and our children's common
sense. This being a railway village,
the store was filled with Thomas the
Tank Engine paraphernalia. Our
oldest boys Ford, 8, and Owen, 6 -
haven't played with Thomas in years.
Now they thought their hearts would
break if they didn't have an engine
named James.
"You guys don't even play with
trains anymore," I said.
"But we will. We promise. Please,
pretty please."
The woman behind the counter
witnessed my boys' meltdown with
sympathy all over her face. With her
lips, she mouthed "I'm sorry" to me.
If I hadn't looked away, I think she
might have gone on to say, "I just
work here part-time. Don't blame me.

Look I'm a mom, too. If it were up to
me, there would be no gift shops any-
where. Not ever."
Now Owen was crying like his pet
just died, and Ford had resorted to
his default: accusing us of favoring
Lindell "just because he's the baby."
How did a happy family outing
suddenly turn into an angry, dysfunc-
tional therapy session in the middle
of a store? Dustin had had enough.
He walked out the front door and onto
the store's porch, where he found my
dad, hands in pockets, whistling up at
the sky. Dad didn't want to know how
much money Mom was spending. He
didn't want to know if the kids were
behaving. It seemed that he wanted
to pretend none of it was happening
at all, and he wished only that every-
one made it out alive.
More than $50 later, Mom and I
came out of the store with the boys
following at our heels. They were still
sniffling and wiping away tears, even
as they each held a sack with a new
toy inside.
Lindell was so excited to see the
car waiting to take him home, he
dropped his new train on the ground
like a rag and hopped into his car
"You've got to be kidding me,"
Dustin said. "We're never going into
another gift shop. They nothing but
one big money pit, and look, the boys
don't even care about what they get
there." He pointed at the train on the
Dustin was being nice. Because I
was thinking, at that very moment,
that gift shops are more along the
lines of the eight circle of hell.

Some people say that children are not
affected by domestic violence
because they were not
in the same room, they were
asleep when it occurred, or
because they did not actually
witness the violence. These
people are wrong.
Domestic violence

children in ways that
go unnoticed by most
parents and can be dam-

tim becomes pregnant. In I

Three-fourths of battered
women delay seeking pre-
natal care and delay visit-
ing the doctor. Soon-to-be-
mothers visit the emergency
room more often without ever
mentioning that they have
been physically abused. As a
result of violence during preg-
nancy, there is a higher risk
of premature births, low birth
weights and delivery issues for
the mother and baby.
The effects of domestic violence
on children have been observed
in many ways. Depending upon
their age or the role they play
in the family, some children
have expressed that they
feel responsible for the vio-
lence. They often feel that
if they hadn't behaved a
certain way, or if they had
been quieter, maybe the victim
would not have been hurt.
Children often become withdrawn and
non-verbal because of domestic violence.

They may think they are making the situ-
ation better by appearing to cope with the
violence or by not saying how they feel.
They may suffer from loss of appetite
or lack of sleep. Some children may

cultural diversity

Annual fair showcases

the many heritages

represented on base

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy Public Affairs Officer
D despite the damp skies and steady
fall of rain, it was a good turn-
out for the ninth annual NAS
Jacksonville Multi-Cultural Fair Aug. 27.
Military and civilian personnel gathered
under the Bachelor Officer's Pavilion to
learn about other cultures and enjoy some
tasty food samples.
The fair showcased numerous cultures
through entertainment, command-spon-
sored booths and special food samplings
provided by the Multi-Cultural Awareness
Committee (MCAC).
"We are here today to celebrate the
diversity of different cultures. Throughout
the year we hold our observances and
there are certain Department of Defense-
sponsored events planned, but this one
brings them all together and allows us to
represent a variety of different cultures. If

you look around, several commands have
set up booths displaying different coun-
tries' heritages, traditions and cultures.
We also have some great entertainment
lined up," said IT2 Sherri Hill, vice presi-
dent of the MCAC.
The fair is sponsored by the NAS Jax
MCAC, which is comprised of volunteers
from different commands. The committee
plans and coordinates everything to bring
the fair to the base.
"This fair lets us celebrate all the dif-
ferent cultures that make up our coun-
try. It took a lot planning, and we had a
lot of help from volunteers and the com-
mands here to organize this event," contin-

ed that diversity is our strength and when
the nation looks to the Navy, it should see
itself in the reflection. It's events like these
that help us celebrate that diversity."
After NAS Jax Command Chaplain
Cmdr. Gerald Felder gave the invoca-

As visitors arrived, they stopped by the
various booths gathering information.
Once the food line opened, the line grew
longer and longer as guests dined on meat-
balls, rice, lumpia, chicken and pancit.
Several commands sponsored booths
at the event representing such coun-
tries as Asia, Columbia, The Philippines,
American Indians and Hispanic heritage.
The commissary and Morale, Welfare and
Recreation Department also set up booths
and passed out literature. Each booth was
judged on their creativity and information

Seasonal flu vaccine immunization program begins

From Staff

It is Department of
Defense (DoD) policy
that annual season-
al influenza vaccinations
are required for all active
duty military personnel,
Selective Reserves and
healthcare workers.
Navy Medicine's seasonal
influenza vaccine immuni-
zation program is designed
to protect Sailors and
Marines, mission-essential
healthcare personnel and
"We will begin vaccina-
tions for NAS Jax tenant
commands starting Sept.
21 and plan to begin vac-
cinating beneficiaries,
dependents and retirees
starting Oct. 1. We would
like to vaccinate everyone
as soon as possible because
we are expecting to get the
swine flu (H1N1) vaccine,
in mid-October. This new
vaccine is a two-shot series
so we will be holding a lot
of shot clinics this season,"
explained HMC(FMF) Fred
Turner of Naval Hospital
Jax who is coordinating
this year's vaccination pro-
gram for the base.
"We haven't received
a vaccine specifically
designed for pregnant
females but hope to get it
soon. We also have the flu
mist available in place of
the vaccine. This season is
going to be very busy so we
ask that people get vacci-
nated as soon as possible,"
concluded Turner.
Influenza is not the com-
mon cold. Influenza can
be a severe to life-threat-
ening disease and getting
an annual influenza vac-
cine immunization (either
the traditional shot in the
arm or the nasal spray vac-
cine) protects many people
from getting the disease or
becoming severely ill.
Immunization remains

the primary method of
reducing seasonal influen-
za illness and its complica-
The seasonal influenza
vaccine not only helps pro-
tect vaccinated individu-
als, but also helps protect
entire communities by pre-
venting and reducing the
spread of the disease.
On July 20, the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration
approved the seasonal vac-
cine to protect against the
anticipated 2009-10 influ-
enza viruses. This year,
the seasonal flu vaccine
includes three strains of
the most common circulat-
ing flu viruses.
Minimizing the transmis-
sion of infections between
healthcare personnel and
patients is also a major
part of this effort.
So it is important to vac-
cinate health care workers
involved in direct patient
care in the fall, excluding
those medically or reli-
giously exempt. Additional
information on the mili-
tary vaccine program can
be found at http://www.vac-

What you need to know
Q: Who should get the
seasonal flu vaccine?
A: In general, anyone
who wants to reduce his
or her chance of getting
the flu can get vaccinat-
ed. However, certain people
should get vaccinated each
year either because they
are at high risk of having
serious flu-related compli-
cations or because they live
with or care for high-risk
persons. If are not sure you
should get the vaccine, con-
tact your primary health-
care provider team. Some
people should not be vac-
cinated without first con-
sulting a physician. They
include people who have
a severe allergy to chick-
en eggs; people who have
had a severe reaction to an
influenza vaccination in
the past; and people who
developed Guillian-Barr6
syndrome within six weeks
of getting an influenza vac-
cine previously. Also people
who have a moderate or
severe illness with a fever
should wait until their
symptoms lessen to get vac-

Q: Will the seasonal flu
vaccine protect me against
swine flu, avian flu other
flu viruses?
A: It certainly can pro-
vide some protection
although not as much as a
swine flu, avian flu or other
flu-specific vaccine. Some of
the studies done on H5N1
(avian) influenza vaccine
in humans indicated that
there may indeed be some
protective immunity across
types, and also previously
vaccinated persons may get
a better response to a spe-
cific newly available vac-
Q: Is it harmful to get
other vaccines at the same
time I get the seasonal flu
A: The ability of flu vac-
cine to protect a person
depends on the age and
health status of the person
getting the vaccine, and
the similarity or "match"

Capt. Darin Rogers of Navy
Medical Support Command,
takes the flu mist vaccination
before flu season starts this
between the virus strains
in the vaccine and those
in circulation. Testing has
shown that both the flu
shot and the nasal-spray
vaccine are effective at pre-
venting the flu. In gener-
al, the flu vaccine can be
combined safely with other
vaccines. It is best to dis-
cuss this with your primary
healthcare provider team
if you anticipate the need
to get other vaccines at the
same time you get the sea-
sonal influenza vaccine.
Q: What can I do now to
protect myself and my fam-
ily from getting sick?
A: By far, the single best
way to prevent the flu is to
get a vaccination each fall.
Navy Medicine follows the

CDC and FDA guidelines
related to the seasonal flu
vaccine. Contact your
healthcare provider for
more information specific to
your health concerns.
Q: Why are you begin-
ning vaccines earlier than
past seasons? Is the sea-
sonal flu expected to appear
earlier and last longer than
in the past?
A: This year's seasonal
flu vaccine is available ear-
lier and we want to begin
the vaccine campaign as
supplies are available. The
DoD and Department of
the Navy goal for vaccinat-
ing service members is to
achieve 90 percent immu-
nization compliance by Dec.
1, which is earlier than last
year because of the need
to protect our population
against seasonal influenza
before any subsequent vac-
cination campaigns against
novel pandemic influenza
strains. Operationally,
achieving this goal sooner,
by the October-November
timeframe, is a goal for
Navy Medicine since a novel
H1N1 vaccine is anticipated.
Q: Who will receive the
flu vaccine, what are your

Q: Is seasonal influenza
vaccine mandatory?
A: Yes, the flu vaccine
has been mandatory for the
total force to promote mili-
tary readiness, protect the
health of those who serve,
and to prevent outbreaks.
Q: How great is the
risk of seasonal influenza
to deployed Sailors and
Marines? Is the seasonal
flu vaccine the same vac-
cine given around the
world? If not, will deployed
personnel come back with
a different virus and infect

people in the states?
A: It is the same strain
of flu all over the world in
the same season. Deployed
personnel can indeed bring
the virus back home if they
were exposed to it while
away. That is why it is so
important to for all our mil-
itary personnel to receive
the seasonal flu vaccine
Q: Is this a thimerosal-
free vaccine? Some states
have enacted legislation
restricting the use of thi-
merosal. Should I be con-
cerned if the vaccine I take
contains thimerosal?
A: There are thimero-
sal vaccines available; the
nasal spray is thimerosal
free. Please share your
concerns with your health-
care team. It is important
to ask your healthcare
provider team before you
receive your injectable shot
if it is thimerosal free.
Q: Navy Medicine has
a global biomedical and
research community, what
is the R&D community
doing about seasonal flu?
A: Navy Medicine labo-
ratories around the world
are a critical part of sur-
veillance for the U.S. and
the rest of the world. The
Naval Health Research
Center in San Diego was
key in detecting the out-
break of H1N1 in April
2009 because they main-
tain a routine febrile illness

surveillance program.
These health habits can
help prevent the flu
Avoid close contact with
people who are sick. When
you are sick, keep your dis-
tance from others to protect
them from getting sick too.
If possible, stay home
from work, school, and
errands when you are sick.
You will help prevent oth-
ers from catching your ill-
Cover your mouth and
nose with a tissue when
coughing or sneezing. It
may prevent those around
you from getting sick.
Washing your hands
often will help protect you

Avoid touching your
eyes, nose or mouth. Germs
are often spread when a
person touches something
that is contaminated with
germs and then touches his
or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

Remembering September 11, 2001

By Chaplain (Lt.) Buster Williams
This week we solemnly observe
the eighth anniversary of the
terrorist attacks on the World
Trade Center, the Pentagon, and
United Airlines Flight 93 that went
down in a Pennsylvania field.
We remember the fallen and the
thousands of innocent lives that were
lost. We remember the heroic sacrific-
es of that day, especially the firefight-
ers and the law enforcement person-
nel who sacrificed their lives so that
others might be saved. We remember
them as heroes because that is what
they were and will forever be in our
nation's memory.
We remember feeling shocked and
surprised that human beings were
capable of committing such hellish
deeds. We remember asking how such
a terrible thing could happen. We
remember being saddened for those
who lost loved ones. We remember
feeling angry at the injustices that
were committed. We remember feel-
ing uncertain about the future. We
remember being grateful for our loved

Chaplain (Lt.) Buster Williams

ones and reflecting on how precious
life is. We remember coming together

as a nation for prayer, for mutual
support, and to do whatever we could
to help our fellow Americans. We
remember a deep sense of patriotism
that our nation had not experienced
in decades.
We remember coming together as
Americans to mourn our loss as a
nation, to help those who were per-
sonally devastated, and to bring to
justice those who propagated such
dastardly deeds.
This Frii.iy, say a prayer for those
who are still recovering. Pray for our
men and women deployed on our
behalf and still waging the war on
terror. Pray for victory and peace to
prevail. Pray for our leaders.
Give thanks to God for the heroic
sacrifices of that day and in the days
ahead in Afghanistan and Iraq. Give
thanks to God for our families and for
our great nation. Give thanks to God
for our freedom.
If you have opportunity, come to All
Saints Chapel at 11 a.m. this Fi-i.iy
to commemorate together. Remember
9/11 .... May we never forget.

NAS Jax softball team brings home trophies

By ATC Carl Vick
CNATTU Jax Public Affairs Officer I

Team Jacksonville, a
new competitor in
the Men's Military
Varsity Class "B" softball
series, finished its season
with a number of tourna-
ment trophies, includ-
ing a fourth-place finish
at the prestigious United
States Specialty Sports
Association (USSSA)
Military World Softball
Tournament held Aug.
13-16 in Panama City, Fla.
The team was formed
in early spring when NAS
Jax Athletic Director Tim
McKinney and Assistant
Athletic Director Bill
Bonser contacted retired
YNCS Derrick Lovell about
scheduling tryouts for a
base softball team to play
in the Southeast Regional
Military Championship
The series consisted
of three qualifying tour-
naments as well as the
Military State Tournament
that lead up to the Military
World Softball Tournament.
NAS Jax hadn't fielded
a men's military varsity
softball team since 2000.
After the tryouts were com-
plete, the new team partici-
pated in the first leg of the
championship series at NS
Mayport in April.

The selectees first challenged the 50-foot
rappel tower, designed to conquer fear and
strengthen character. Sgt. 1st Class Bill

Merrill briefed the selectees on procedure
and safety before rigging each of them
at the top of the tower. As each selectee
stepped over the edge to begin their rappel,
their fellow selectees and members of the
NAS Jacksonville Chiefs' Mess encouraged
them from below.
After the rappel tower, selectees faced

The inspection team had to wait until daylight to conduct a thorough evaluation of the dam-
aged HH-60H Seahawk helicopters.

The two HSC-84 Seahawk helicopters were flown from
Iraq in a U.S. Air Force C-5 Starlifter and off-loaded at NAS
Jacksonville for evaluation and repair at FRCSE.

During the nine-month repair process, FRCSE electrician
James Garlington (left) and aircraft mechanic Terry Dixon
hook up the actuator to the center stabilizer of the HH-60H.

After FRCSE repaired serious damage sustained in a flight line accident in Balad, Iraq, this
HH-60H helicopter assigned to the "Red Wolves" of HSC-84 took off recently "as good as new"
for NS Norfolk, Va.

assembly, and the installation of several
new components.
Additionally, an extensive examination
of the aircraft's electrical and avionics
equipment was performed and crash dam-
age repairs were completed.
Before its final release with a clean bill
of health, FRCSE performed an operation-
al-level special inspection on the helicop-
ter. In July, HSC-84 personnel completed
their pre-flight checks, records review,
ground turns and successful first flight.
Two days later, the Red Wolves flew the
like-new Seahawk back to their homeport
at NS Norfolk.
HSC-84 is the Navy's only squadron ded-
icated to naval special warfare support and

strike rescue. The squadron operates eight
Sikorsky HH-60H Seahawk helicopters
and is tasked with maintaining readiness
to deploy anywhere in the world within
72-hours notice.
Night operations, especially those that
are airborne, are among the most diffi-
cult activities performed by the military.
Although darkness increases the effective-
ness of surprise for our forces and reduces
the enemy's ability to effectively aim his
fire, there are many factors that contribute
to night operations being a very dangerous
Those factors include limited visibility
or the absence of a horizon, the affect in
darkness where objects sometimes appear
larger and distances seem greater, and the
physical ability of the eye to adjust to vary-
ing light conditions.

projects total $64 million

From Page 1

To achieve these goals,
it's vital to raise personnel
awareness and participa-
tion, train energy and util-
ity personnel, implement
new conservation-based
technology, implement life
cycle cost-effective projects,
establish Energy Star rated
buildings, integrate energy
efficiency into leases and
base operations services
contracts, increase renew-
able energy use, and reduce
petroleum consumption.
Naval Facilities
Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Southeast
developed a tool kit for con-
servation that incorporates
technology, identification
and training of pivotal per-
sonnel, high performance
building tools, communica-
tion and recognition pro-
grams and measurement
mechanisms for installation

NAS Jacksonville is
scheduled to award
a $17 million
project focused on imple-
menting energy savings
throughout the base. The
project includes upgrades
to heating, ventilation and
air conditioning (HVAC)
systems, lighting system
retrofits, and the installa-
tion of water conservation
Ongoing projects on
board NAS Jacksonville
include the installation of
an automated meter read-
ing system that will allow
reading of real-time electri-
cal usage by facilities. The
$2.3 million project was
awarded in September 2008
and is projected to be com-

commanding officers.
Energy Star certification
will be required on all appli-
ances. Diligence will be paid
on addressing and imple-
menting alternative fuels for
vehicles and infrastructure.
Personnel will be trained
and certified annually on
strategies, construction and
sustainment of energy and
water conservation best
practices. NAVFAC will
ensure that new construc-
tion and major renovation
plans will be reviewed to
ensure that leading tech-
nology for conservation are
implemented. To publicize
these efforts, existing build-
ings re-commissioned as
Energy Star or LEED certi-
fied will be recognized with
a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
NAVFAC will monitor
progress with a compre-
hensive Web-based metrics
program established, main-
tained and available for

projects at NAS

plete by the end of the year.
A $3.3 million project to
implement energy conser-
vation measures through-
out the base is scheduled
to be complete this month.
The project includes the
installation of water-con-
serving toilets and plumb-
ing fixtures, energy effi-
cient boilers, high-output
lighting, and HVAC control
system upgrades.
Additionally, an American
Recovery and Rein-
vestment Act (ARRA)
funded contract valued at

your actions and those of your
friends and understand the
decisions that you make,"
said McCoy. "The causes
for fatal mishaps are speed,

ers. Remember, you make

June 30, 200S

Another short presentation was given
by Connie Policastro, a motorcycle safe-
ty instructor with Cape Fox Professional
Services who informed the audience about
the new seatbelt law that took effect in the
State of Florida June 30.
"Not wearing a seatbelt while driving
in this state is now considered a primary
offense which means the police can pull
you over just for not wearing one. In fact,
in July, the Florida Highway Patrol issued
10,000 tickets for non-compliance, a 61
percent increase from the previous month
and the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office (JSO)
had a 31 percent increase," said Policastro.
"Tickets can cost you about $103 in
Duval County and $99 in Clay County.
Everyone in a moving vehicle must be
wearing a seatbelt including in the bed of
a truck."
She also reminded the crowd to not
drink and drive over the upcoming holiday
weekend and informed them about the free
Tow to Go program sponsored by AAA
Auto Club South and Budweiser.
"This program will tow your car home
and give you a free ride if you've had too
much to drink. It runs on holiday week-
ends Oct. 30-31 and Nov. 26 through
Jan. 2. Just call 1-800-AAA-HELP,"
Policastro said.
Another topic she touched on was the
importance of motorcycle safety courses.
"We have numerous classes available at
NAS Jax and we even offer loaner motor-
cycles to use for the class," she continued.

*Courses available here
are the basic rider course,
a three-day course which is
mandatory to obtain a Florida
olicastro, license and to ride on base;
cle safe- experienced rider course,
tor with a one-day refresher and the
professional military sport bike rider's
plains the course, a one-day course
a seatbelt which is mandatory for all
ook effect military personnel riding
9. sport bikes.
To sign up for any of these courses, log
on to: or
call 542-3082.
Representing the NAS Jax Security
Department was Capt. James Oswald who
stressed the importance of safe driving
both on and off base.
"Yesterday, we issued 10 tickets for run-
ning stop signs, four for being distracted
while driving and two for careless driving
after they were involved accidents," he said.
"Most of our accidents occur in our
commissary and hospital parking lots.
Another big concern is that we have a lot
of people running the red lights at our
gates. Last week, JSO was out there and
wrote nine tickets in 50 minutes. Running
a red light will cost you about $285. Times
are hard. Do you have money to spend on
a ticket? Think about that while you are
out there driving. Remember to make that
full stop, look for other vehicles, pedestri-
ans, bicycles," Oswald added.
Closing out the safety stand down was
NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack
Scorby Jr. "My command philosophy has
always been that accomplishing our mis-
sion in a safe manner will always be our
number one priority," stated Scorby.
"I ask all of our military and civilian
personnel to please make safety your num-
ber one priority whether at work, home or
play. Take care of yourself, your shipmates
and your family. At the end of the day,
when all is said and done, we need each
and every one of you," said Scorby.

Fleet and Industrial
Supply Center
Jacksonville (FISCJ)
announced Aug. 31 that
it successfully completed
a Black Belt Continuous
Process Improvement
(CPI) project that reduces
the cost of official mail ser-
FISCJ Lean Six Sigma
Black Belt Pauline
Chriscoe led the study. She
assembled a team of sub-
ject matter experts repre-
senting five of the 12 FISCJ
detachments, including
FISCJ Regional Director of
Postal Operations Charles
Ramsey, FISCJ Det NAS
Pensacola William Kington,
FISCJ Det NS Mayport
Freddie Hale, FISCJ Det

FISCJ Director Supply
Management Cmdr.
Maurice Meagher was the
project sponsor, and Lt.
Cmdr. Joel Tiu participated
as FISCJ command deploy-
ment champion.
The project charter's goal
was to reduce the cost of
postal operations by 20
percent (from $2.9 to $2.4
million) and to simplify the
official mail process.
The team's first job was
to map out the process
steps that each official mail
facility preformed. The
team held weekly meetings
to discuss and brainstorm
metrics to be measured for
baseline statistics and pro-
cess capability.
Data was analyzed, key
factors identified, and root
causes discussed to find
ways to improve mail-han-
dling operations.
The team reviewed offi-
cial mail workload across
the region and adjust-
ed manpower resources
to match the workload
requirements at each
This resulted in approxi-
mately $522,000 in savings
allowing the supply pro-
gram to live within current
budget constraints.
By standardizing pro-
cedures, the postal opera-
tions were able to capture
reimbursable charges in
accordance with refer-
ences; DOD Financial
Management Regulation,
Vol. 11B,Chapter 1, DON

plish this, FISCJ will pro-
vide Web-Based Training,
update the postal Customer
Service Guide, and offer
alternative methods for
delivery confirmation. The
project improvements will
be validated at two-, six-,
and 12-month milestones.
Lean Six Sigma is a sys-
temic approach to identi-
fying methods of process
improvement that result in
waste reduction and elimi-
nation of non-value added
activities with the ultimate
end result being cost and/or
time savings.
As part of the CPI cycle,
L6S mitigates project
risks by using the "Define
- Measure Analyze -
Improve Control" method-
ology. This is a structured
problem-solving process
used to improve productivi-
ty (speed), quality and cost.
Chriscoe stated, "The
team members who worked
on this project should be
proud of their accomplish-
ments. They produced
a plan of action that will
clearly result in a tangi-
ble, positive impact on the
postal operations all across
the FISCJ Enterprise. This
has been a highly reward-
ing experience for everyone

Majority of Veterans Don't Understand

Burial Benefits*; Company Provides Assistance


A recent study shows that approxi-
mately 60% of veterans do not fully
understand the burial benefits provided
by the federal government. While the
reasons for this shocking figure are
largely unknown, the seemingly dif-
ficult processes involved in obtaining
veterans benefits are partly to blame.
Another likely cause is the possibility
that many veterans and their families
are not aware of what the government
provides when a veteran passes away.
The benefits can be significant,
but they vary depending on several
conditions set forth by the U.S. De-
partment of Veterans Affairs. Certain
restrictions apply based on whether
burial takes place in a private or na-
tional cemetery.
Regardless of the cemetery cho-
sen, benefits include a government-
issued flag, a government headstone
or marker and a Presidential Memorial
Certificate. Even though these benefits
are "guaranteed," certain procedures
must be followed to receive them.
Some veterans may be eligible for
monetary burial allowances, as well,
but this is yet another issue that com-
plicates matters; in order to be consid-
ered, the veteran must meet a list of
additional requirements.
With so many issues related to
receiving VA burial benefits, it is no
wonder that there is a gap in under-
standing the guidelines are difficult
to comprehend. Thankfully, though, at
least one funeral services company has
stepped in to assist veterans and their
families during their time of need.
The Dignity Memorial network,
the nation's leading network of locally-
operated funeral homes and cemeteries,
*Lindberg Group June 2008

offers a free Veterans Planning Guide
to eligible veterans. The 56-page guide
clearly outlines VA burial benefits,
spells out the required procedures and
offers helpful information to veterans
and their families. The guide also con-
tains worksheets that allow you to plan
your own arrangements, making clear
your final wishes.
Chris Marsh, a representative of
the Dignity Memorial network, says
the company is doing what it can to
help veterans. "Knowing that the fed-
eral guidelines for veterans can be
difficult to understand, we developed
the Veterans Planning Guide to make
the process of both planning one's
own arrangements and receiving well-
deserved benefits much easier," says
Marsh. "We made the guide free so
more veterans can receive those ben-
efits that they have earned."
In addition to providing important
information and special offers for vet-
erans (including a free flag box and
information on how to receive a 10%
discount on services not covered by
VA benefits), the guide outlines pos-
sible payment plans, so that funeral
expenses are much easier to manage.
Marsh notes, however, that even if
you choose not to pay up front, plan-
ning early is vital for you and your
loved ones.
For more information about the
Dignity Memorial network's veterans
services, or to request a free planner,

The Dignity Memorial brand name is used to identify a network
of licensed funeral, cremation and cemetery providers that
comprise the Dignity Memorial network. The Dignity Memorial
network includes affiliates of Service Corporation International,
1929 Allen Parkway, Houston, Texas, as well as many other fine
independently owned and operated establishments.
