9/11 remembered

at All Saints Chapel 1

By Clark Pierce

Marking the eighth anniversary
of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror-
ist attacks in New York City,
Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania, doz-
ens of Sailors, Marines, civilian employees
and family members gathered at NAS
Jax All Saints Chapel last Thursday to
remember those who lost their lives.
The commemoration began as Command
Chaplain (Cmdr.) Gerald Felder welcomed
the participants and said, T.i'. L, we join
our commanding officer, as well as every
other American, in maintaining the sin-
cerest hope that our courage, honor and
commitment to freedom will never waiver.
This is our legacy to future generations."

Natalie Reed sang a heartfelt rendition
of the national anthem.
In his remarks, NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
asked the audience, "Who here today can
forget where they were on Sept. 11, 2001?"
"I was at the Navy Annex preparing to
present a brief at the Pentagon when news
of the attacks on the World Trade Center
captured everyone's attention. Then, at
9:37 a.m., we heard the roar of an airliner
screaming overhead followed quickly by
an explosion as American Airlines Flight
77, which had been hijacked by five terror-
ists, crashed into the Pentagon. I remem-
ber looking out the window only to see
smoke and flames. For the next several
hours, we assisted with directing people

D-Day participant
is keynote speaker

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jacksonville Deputy PAO

NAS Jacksonville will hold a POW/
MIA Recognition Observance
aboard the base today at 2 p.m.
at the All Saints Chapel. The event will
honor all Americans who are former pris-
oners of war (POWs), as well as those who
are still unaccounted for, and their fami-
The keynote speaker will be James Gaff,
a U.S. Navy veteran who participated in
the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944. He
is also a board member of the Mayport
Council Navy League.
Gaff is a native of Pawtucket, R.I. In
1943, as a 17-year-old high school junior,
he decided to enlist in the Navy to join
the fight against the Nazi regime during
World War II. After completing his ini-
tial training, the young Navy coxswain's
mate was sent to Europe, where on June 6,
1944, he joined the approximately 160,000
allied troops participating in Operation
Overlord, also know as D-Day.

Jim Gaff

More than 5,000 ships and 13,000 air-
craft supported the D-Day invasion, and by
the end of the first day, the allies gained a
foothold in Normandy, France. The inva-
sion cost was high more than 9,000 allied
Soldiers were killed or wounded, but more
than 100,000 Soldiers began the march
across Europe to defeat Hitler.
As a Navy coxswain, Gaff was respon-
sible for transporting troops and supplies
to Utah Beach and taking the wounded
back to larger ships for medical aid. This
proved not to be an easy task as underwa-
ter explosives were interspersed through-
out the sea, but he successfully completed
numerous trips back and forth.
After D-Day, Gaff volunteered to assist
the U.S. Army transporting troops across

Hey, MoneyChic! I'm raising teenagers and operate on
the philosophy that if they are going to partake in under-
age drinking, then I'd rather it be in the safety of my own
home. I let them invite some friends over and have small
parties that include alcohol. One parent got wind of this
and spoke her mind she doesn't share my attitude
about the situation. That is fine, but one thing she said
still bothers me. She asked if I was heavily insured? What
would that have to do with anything that takes place in
the privacy of my home?
MoneyChic says: In a recent poll 31 percent of parents
reported that their high-school-age kids don't consume
any alcohol when in reality, 60 percent of these same
kids said that they did consume alcohol. Despite these
statistics, you feel comfortable allowing parties in your
home. Just keep in mind that if any of the under-age
guests get hurt or cause damage after drinking at your
home you will be the one held accountable, because you
provided the alcohol to a minor. Depending on your state's
laws, you could be punished by a fine and even prison
time. You could also be sued by the families of your kids'
friends and forced to pay for any medical bills or even
emotional distress. If this hasn't made you stop to pause
and reconsider, then I highly recommend adding umbrella
insurance. This coverage protects you from large medical
bills and/or legal judgments that result from accidents.
Umbrella policies typically cost $150 to $300 per year.
(You must also have homeowner's and auto insurance
with the same company to purchase the umbrella policy.)
If you still intend to allow your teenagers to invite friends
over to consume alcohol in your home, I'd add this cover-
age right away.
My very best advice? Do not condone or facilitate con-
sumption of alcohol by minors. Nothing good will come
from it.

on the ledge, his plastic cape folded

out of the corner of my eye. For the
first time, I understood the complexi-
ties for which Ford and Owen had
wrestled with day after day on the
floor of their bedroom. This revela-
tion gave me newfound respect for my
boys' play. I was hooked. Unable to
stop thinking about the story, I asked
my husband and children questions
("What is the meaning of Luke look-

looking at his own and lowering his

lost interest.
The next day at the gym, Mike, who
is 30, saw Ford carrying a toy light
saber to the child care room.
"Is he a Trekkie or something?"
Mike asked.
Two weeks ago, I would have rolled
my eyes and sighed. But two weeks
ago, I wouldn't have just purchased
a handmade knit hat that looks like
Princess Leia's buns. I wouldn't have
downloaded the light saber app on

might have called my sons Trekkies,
"Trekkie? Really?" I said to Mike. I

belief. I had always thought the force
was strong in him.
Then I channeled Yoda: "Mmmm,
power of the force, he must not know.
Mysterious are the ways of the Star

May the force be with him.

How to write a 10-minute resume

From LifeLines

Get together a list of your educational experiences,
past training and development and work history.
You might not want to include personal refer-
ences, but line them up before sending out your resume.
Chose people who have known you for at least one year
and can give testimony as to your working habits, cre-
dentials, education, or volunteer work. Don't include rela-
tives as personal references. On a separate sheet of paper,
list personal references and their contact information.
Ask your references for their permission to list them and
let them know you are sending out r6sum6s. (Hey Jane .
. just wanted to let you know I'll be sending out r6sum6s
this week, so you might receive a few phone calls.)
Now that you have all the information you
need, make sure you have a reliable typewrit-
er, computer, or word processor and clean paper.
There are several styles of r6sum6s to choose from. has examples of great r6sum6s. If
you are applying for a variety of jobs, use a generic style
r6sum6. If you apply for a specific position later, this
generic style will help you lay the foundation for a more
formal r6sum6.
A generic r6sum6 starts with your name and contact
information (address, phone, and e-mail) at the top. Your
name should be in bold or in a type different from the rest
of your r6sum6. This will help the interviewer file and
pull your r6sum6 at a later date. Next, list your education,
starting with high school. Always list your completion
date and degree or certificate obtained. List education spe-
cific to your skills (i.e., high school, junior college, univer-
sity, or special training). After listing your education, put
your work experience, complete with contact information
for previous employers and dates of employment. At the
bottom of your r6sum6, type a sentence stating that you
will provide references upon request.

Galley unveils

new look

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO

Special cake-cutting cere-
mony and luncheon Sept.
9 officially reopened
the installation galley known
as the Flight Line Caf6 after
a year-long, $220,000 renova-
tion project. Numerous com-
mands played a part in the ren-
ovation process which includes
new wood-look flooring, ceil-
ing tiles and fans, energy-effi-
cient lighting, granite tables,
sports-themed tables, padded
chairs and barstools, flat-screen
HDTVs and table accessories.
"I want to thank you all for
the help you put forth dur-
ing the galley renovation,"
said NAS Jax Supply Officer
Cmdr. Terry Surdyke to a
group of civilian person-
nel representing Navy Region
Southeast, NAS Jacksonville,
Naval Facilities Engineering
Command Southeast and Fleet
and Industrial Supply Center
Jacksonville. "This has truly
been a cross-organizational
team effort and by looking
around, you can see that it is a
stunning success."
Starting outside the front
door, Surdyke led a tour of the
facility and pointed out the new
upgrades and improvements.
"Some might think this is a
small thing, but the landscaping
around the building is impor-
tant to the appearance and sets
the tone when you come into a
building. Just a few months ago,
our flowerbeds out front were
nothing but dead shrubs. Now,
thanks to the Public Works
Department, it's all been land-
scaped," he remarked.
In the main dining room,
Surdyke proudly showed off
the new d6cor. "All the flooring
in the dining areas is new. It's
durable, attractive, easy to clean
and so much nicer than the old
carpeting. The ceiling tiles are
new, as well as the energy effi-

cient lighting and ceiling fans.
The granite tables, booths,
chairs and accessories are all
new," he continued. "We even
have new bread machines. In
the past, galley staff members
had to hand wrap bread in plas-
tic wrap, which took hours."
In the sports-themed room,
ceiling tiles and lights feature
race cars, soccer balls and other
sporting logos. There are also
several flat-screen HDTVs
mounted on the walls so patrons
can watch their favorite teams
in action as they dine.
In the kitchen, he noted,
"We have a new pot scrubber

and scullery unit coming that
will increase efficiency and we
have also installed new stoves, a
refrigerator and mixers."
NAS Jax Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. seemed
quite impressed with the reno-
vated facility. "I want to thank
you all for your part in making
today a reality. For those who
saw what it looked like here
six months ago, there is just no
comparison everything is new.
We've been four-star accredit-
ed for the past five years and
I think the only thing holding
us back from that fifth star was
our furnishings," stated Scorby.

"Thanks to FISC for handling all
the contracting issues and pub-
lic works and the galley staff for
putting it all together and mak-
ing this day happen."
The galley staff also worked
diligently to increase menu
choices and provide their
patrons with nutritious and
tasty selections.
"I had a hamburger and it was
very, very good. And, the new
look is great. It's much brighter
inside," said Karen Snodgrass,
a Naval Facilities Engineering
Command Southeast employee.
"It looks great. It makes it
very nice to eat here now. In
fact, someone is sitting at my
Lakers' table today and I don't
like it," said ASAR Oscar
Vazquez of the Center for Naval
Aviation Technical Training
Unit, referring to the sports-
themed tables and accessories.
"Now it feels more like I'm eat-
ing at a restaurant out in town
versus an old Navy galley."
The Flight Line Caf6 is open
Monday through Friday from
6-7:30 a.m. for breakfast, 11
a.m. to 1 p.m for lunch and
4:30-6 p.m. for dinner. Weekend

Carrier strike group deployment schedules to shift

From U.S. Fleet Forces Command
The Navy announced Sept. 11 the deci-
sion to shift near-term carrier strike
group (CSG) deployment schedules
to address a delay in the completion of USS
Enterprise's (CVN 65) maintenance avail-
ability at Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding-
Newport News.
Navy leaders monitoring the progress of
Enterprise's maintenance availability have
evaluated the upcoming carrier schedules
in order to meet combatant commander
requirements and minimize impacts to
pre-deployment training cycles.
By extending the current USS Nimitz
(CVN 68) and the upcoming USS Harry
S. Truman (CVN 75) carrier strike group
deployments to just under eight months
each, the Navy will meet the near-term
operational requirements generated by the
Enterprise maintenance availability exten-

"Dusty 615" of HS-7 maintains vigil during USS Harry S. Truman flight operations in 2008.
The Truman strike group's 2010 deployment will be extended to just under eight months.

The Navy remains committed to its gener-
al policy of maintaining deployment lengths
to manage personnel tempo as essential
components of force readiness.
No new deployments result from this
schedule change all the affected carrier

strike groups were scheduled to be deployed
in 2010. The only changes are to the timing
and lengths of those deployments.
"Adjusting these carrier deployment
schedules was the best solution of available
options," said Adm. J. C. Harvey Jr., com-

mander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command.
"We recognize this decision has operation-
al and personnel impacts, such as training
cycle changes and family uncertainty. Our
Sailors and families also are ready to step
up when necessary to meet the continued
demands of a nation at war."
U.S. Fleet Forces and U.S. Pacific Fleet
conducted a careful, in-depth analysis to
ensure the Navy maintains continued sup-
port for the Maritime Strategy while mini-
mizing the impact of schedule changes on
crews and ships.
"We have been engaged in reducing
the stress of lengthy deployments, and
we remain committed to that goal for our
Sailors and their families," said Adm. Robert
Willard, commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet.
"I know changes in deployment length
affect everyone. Part of our Sailors' readi-
ness and well being is knowing their fami-
lies are cared for regardless of deployment
length. We will continue to invest in fam-

M ore than 500 Sailors and Marines enjoyed a unique
afternoon of fun and games Sept. 9 at the Barracks
Bash presented by NAS Jax Morale, Welfare
and Recreation (MWR)
Department Liberty Program. ,
The free event featured pic-
nic-style food, T-shirts, goodie -
bags and prizes that includ-
ed Apple iPods, a GPS and a
Nintendo game system.
"The purpose of the
Barracks Bash is to provide
an event that is alcohol-free
and targeted to the junior AWO3 Jose Ponce of VP-30
enlisted Sailors who reside was happy with his elapsed
in the barracks," said Liberty time in the rock wall climb-
Program Coordinator Mack ing competition.
"Paintball was a new event that generated a lot of excite-
ment. More than 320 people took up the strange-looking
weapons and splattered each other. Our other new event was
the Stars and Stripes Racing NASCAR simulator that let
drivers compete against their favorite stock car heroes," said

The rock wall climbing competition attracted a steady stream
of Sailors and Marines who thought they had the right stuff.
According to Assistant Liberty Program Coordinator
Kristine Mitchell, a classic Barracks Bash challenge is the
dunking tank. "It's always fun when the skipper, XO, com-
mand master chief and other leadership consent to spend time
in the dunker. We must have a good number of skilled ath-
letes in the barracks because I saw a lot of splashdowns."
NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. was
pleased with the turnout. "This is proof that 'good, clean fun'
is always popular at NAS Jacksonville. Our MWR team really
knows how to create exciting and entertaining events. The
refreshments were great, as well as the prize drawings."

CMDCM(SW/SS) Jeff Hudson bestowed good-natured taunts
upon Sailors who failed to dunk him.
In addition to the various competitions, Barracks Bashers
enjoyed entertainment by Deejay Vince Cottone, who kept the
music pumping full-bore and non-stop.
MWR thanks everyone who supported or volunteered for
this event, including sponsor Dave & Busters.
Neither MWR, nor the U.S. Navy or any other part of the fed-
eral government officially endorses any company, sponsor or
its products or services.

Men stopping violence

Educating, advocating for change

By Jill Stubblefield
Fleet and Family Support Center

Jackson Katz -an educator, author,
filmmaker and man -is recognized
as one of America's leading anti-sex-
ist male activists. He suggests the follow-
ing things men can do to prevent violence
against women:
Approach gender violence/domestic vio-
lence as a men's issue. Domestic violence
involves men of all socioeconomic, racial
and ethnic backgrounds.
View men not only as perpetrators
or possible offenders, but as empowered
bystanders who can confront abusive
Do not look the other way if a brother,
friend, classmate or teammate is abusing
his female partner. If you feel comfortable
talking to him about it, urge him to seek
help or consult a friend, a parent or a coun-
selor for help. Don't remain silent.
Have the courage to look inward.
Question your own attitudes. Try to under-
stand how your own attitudes/actions
might inadvertently perpetuate violence
and work toward changing them.
If you suspect that a woman close to
you is being abused or has been sexually
assaulted, gently ask if you can help.
If you are psychologically, physically or

sexually abusive to women, or have been in
the past, seek professional help now.
Be an ally to women who are work-
ing to end all forms of gender violence.
Support the work of Fleet and Family
Support Center and attend the events dur-
ing Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Educate yourself and others about
how larger social forces affect the conflicts
between individual men and women. Read
books, watch films, attend programs or
take courses on the root causes of domestic
Don't fund sexism or family violence.
Refuse to purchase any magazine, rent any
video, subscribe to any Web site, or buy
any music that portrays girls or women in
a sexually degrading or abusive manner.
Mentor and teach young boys about
how to be men in ways that don't involve
degrading or abusing girls and women.
Men, you are the answer to ending
domestic violence. By taking action, speak-
ing out, educating yourself and others and
by following the advice provided above,
domestic violence can be eliminated.
For information on what you can do,
please contact Fleet and Family Support
Center at 542-2766.

conservation tips

From Public Works
With the Navy's
increased aware-
ness for ener-
gy conservation at NAS
Jacksonville, the energy
team is asking that all
personnel consider what
they can do to help achieve
energy reduction. Here
are some ideas that can
be used both in the work
place and at home:
Use compact fluorescent
lights (CFL) instead of
incandescent bulbs wher-
ever possible. Compact flu-
orescents are three to four
times more efficient than
incandescent and last 10
times as long.
Long-life incandes-
cent light bulbs (1,500-
3,500 hours lifetime) are
less efficient than regular
life incandescent because
the filament operates
at a lower temperature
to extend life. Energy-
conscious consumers should
use long-life bulbs only
where replacement is dif-
ficult or even better replace
those hard to reach incan-
descent lights with compact
fluorescent lights that have




practice parenting skills.
Screenings assess your child's over-
all development, as well as health, hear-
ing and vision. Screenings highlight the
strengths and abilities of your child and
usually reassure parents that their chil-
dren are meeting developmental mile-
stones within expected age ranges.
Resource Network links your family to
other helpful community services.
Being part of a military family adds
unique experiences that bring a whole new
challenge to parenting.
Parents as Teachers understands and is
available to help you with military specific
topics such as deployment, reunification,
relocation, and geographic distance from
family members, just to name a few.
By understanding what to expect during
each stage of development, parents can
easily capture the teachable moments in
everyday life to enhance their child's lan-
guage development, intellectual growth,
social development and motor skills.

Penn retires after more than four decades of service

By Lt. j.g. Laura Stegherr
Navy Office of Information

The assistant secretary of the Navy
for installations and environment
(ASN I&E), retired from civilian
service Sept. 3 after more than four years
as the leader of the Department of the
Navy's shore establishment and three
months as acting secretary of the Navy.
In an Aug. 31 award ceremony at the
Navy Memorial, Vice Adm. Michael Loose,
deputy chief of Naval Operations for Fleet
Readiness and Logistics, praised Penn's
leadership and his contributions to the
"You leave a legacy of being a phenom-
enal and inspirational teacher, coach, men-
tor and team builder who would -.Ill.--
do anything for a shipmate or a friend,"
said Loose. "You did what you said you
would do you not only visited every
one of the Navy's and Marine Corps' 102
bases, but you made a significant impact
on the people you visited. And from every
one of those visits, you brought back the
issues that meant the most to our Sailors,
Marines and their families."
Penn's journey began as a seaman recruit
when he enlisted in the Navy in 1961. He
went on to earn his wings as a naval avia-
tor, serve as both the executive officer and
commanding officer of VAQ-33, as well as
air boss on USS America (CV 66).

I got Naval Air Station North Island,
which was phenomenal because at the
time it was the Navy's largest air station.
Everything I did during my time at the air
station is what prepared me so greatly for
this job."
During his tenure as ASN (I&E), Penn
was responsible for the management of
shore infrastructure, which encompass-
es 102 installations and 72,500 facilities
valued at over $215 billion. This posi-
tion carried with it several new and com-
plex responsibilities ensuring the Navy
Department was environmentally compli-
ant, energy efficient, and was supported by
a force with a high quality of life.
"To relocate forces to Guam, we are doing
85 different environmental studies," said
Penn. "It's going to take us about three
years at a major cost. But we have to do the
right thing, and if we don't take care of the
environment, we are doing ourselves a dis-
service as well as the rest of the world."
"We are striving to green the Navy. All
of our new construction projects are going

to be green, LEED certified buildings. The
result in cost savings and for the environ-
ment will be unbelievable," said Penn.
Above all, he emphasized that the qual-
ity of life for Sailors and Marines is the
most important part of his job.
"I was just in Miramar a month or so
ago looking at the new private-public ven-
ture housing, which is fantastic. With our
Homeport Ashore Program, we've opened
up apartments for Sailors in San Diego,
and we're building 36 new barracks for the
Marines over the next few years. That is
what we are doing for our people, and I
think that's the right thing to do."
Looking back at his life, Penn reflected
that his time in the Navy has truly been
an incredible journey. "If you want to make
it, you certainly can in the Navy. Every
day I pinch myself. Where else can a kid
from Peru, Indiana come in as an E-1 in
the Navy, fulfill a childhood dream of fly-
ing jets, serve with the best people in the
world and even act as the Secretary of the
Navy? It's truly the American dream."

Clean or replace air filters regularly on
furnaces, heat pumps and air conditioners.
Install a programmable thermostat for
automatic on/off time control of heating

This was also the first official Patriot
Day and National Day of Service and
In a Sept. 10 news release, the president
declared, "I, Barack Obama, President of
the United States of America, do hereby
proclaim September 11, 2009, as Patriot

Day and National Day of Service and
Remembrance. I call upon all depart-
ments, agencies, and instrumentalities of
the United States to display the flag of
the United States at half-staff on Patriot
Day and National Day of Service and
Remembrance in honor of the individuals
who lost their lives as a result of the ter-
rorist attacks against the United States
that occurred on September 11, 2001. I call
upon the people of the United States to
participate in community service in honor
of those our nation lost, to observe this
day with other ceremonies and activities,
including remembrance services, and to
observe a moment of silence beginning at
8:46 a.m. eastern daylight time to honor
the innocent victims who perished as a
result of the terrorist attacks of September
11, 2001."
According to www.911dayofservice.
org, the purpose is to honor the victims
of 9/11 and those who rose to service in
response to the attacks by encouraging
all Americans and others throughout the
world to pledge to voluntarily perform at
least one good deed, or another service
activity on 9/11 each year. In this way
we hope to create a lasting and forward-
looking legacy annually rekindling the
spirit of service, tolerance, and compassion
that unified America and the world in the
immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks."

the Ruhr and Rhine rivers in
Germany until the war was over
in May 1945. "We were the first
group to return home to New
York after the war and boy, what
a homecoming it was. The crowds
were cheering and boats were
blowing their horns. It was really
something," he said.
He was next slated to trans-
fer to Treasure Island, Calif.
but when Japan surrendered,
Gaff was discharged from the
Navy. Realizing the importance
of education, he finished high
school and enrolled at Stetson
University using his GI Bill to
earn a degree in economics and
history. After graduation, Gaff
moved to Fort Lauderdale to work
as stockbroker for the next 38
years. "I was young and single
and realized Florida was an up
and growing state so I headed
south because I thought I'd have

a better future there,"
explained Gaff.
During that time he
raised two sons, James
and Robert and also
became a member of
the Fort Lauderdale
Council of the Navy
League, later serv-
ing as president of the
organization. "I've been
affiliated with the Navy
League since the late 1960s. The
Fort Lauderdale group does so
much for the Navy. Every ship
that comes in there is wined and
dined. The city has the reputation
of being one of the best liberty
ports in the country," he contin-
In 1993, Gaff retired from his
brokerage firm and he and his
wife, Donna, moved to Ponte
Vedra Beach, Fla., where he
promptly joined the Mayport
Council Navy League and became

a member of the board. "The
Navy League has been my avo-
cation. I do everything I can for
them. The Navy League really
does a lot of great things for our
military members and their fami-
lies," he said, proudly. "Our mil-
itary members and their fami-
lies sacrifice so much when they
deploy and anything we can do to
help them, we will."
Gaff has worked tirelessly to
organize several events in the
local community to benefit mili-

tary members including
Veterans Appreciation
Day at the Plantation
Country Club at Ponte
Vedra, a free golf event
for military veterans.
He has also helped raise
more than $50,000 for
the Navy League and
Sea Cadet programs,
raised over $30,000 for
the Navy and Marine
Corps Relief Society and helped
establish a ship library on board
USS Roosevelt at NS Mayport.
Another highlight of Gaffs life
was when he traveled back to
Utah Beach last year to partici-
pate in the dedication of a Navy
D-Day Memorial. "A lot of indi-
viduals and organizations donat-
ed the $500,000 to make this hap-
pen. It was great to go back there
and participate in this event," he

Members of the VP-10 "Red Lancers" gather with a group of U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen
during the students' visit to Africa as part of the Midshipmen Summer Training Program.

Naval Academy graduates and

midshipmen unite in Africa

By Lt. j.g. Grant Smith
VP- 10

Sixteen midshipmen from the United
States Naval Academy (USNA)
Class of 2010 had the opportunity to
spend time with VP-10 in Africa as part of
Midshipmen Summer Training Program.
Every summer, midshipmen take part in pro-
grams that familiarize them with the different
warfare specialties available in the Navy. The
exposure helps the midshipmen to make an edu-
cated decision on which Navy career path they'd
like to pursue.
The midshipmen learned a lot from USNA
alumni currently deployed with VP-10 at Camp
Lemonier, Djibouti.
The alumni spanned 26 years (classes of 1981
to 2006) and included Rear Adm. Anthony Kurta,
1981, commander, Combined Joint Task Force -
Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA), Capt. Finn, 1986,
commanding officer of Camp Lemonier and vari-
ous members of a detachment from the VP-10
"Red Lancers."

The Red Lancers present for the USNA alumni
photo were: Cmdr. Rob Patrick, 1992; Lt. Cmdr.
Mark Bums, 1997; Lt. Michael Thomas, 2004;
Lt. Chuck Lewis, 2005; Lt. j.g. Phil Rudzki,
2006; Lt. j.g. Mike Inde, 2006; and Lt. j.g. Grant
Smith, 2006.
Based in Djibouti, Africa, at the intersection of
the Red Sea and the Gulf of Oman, the midship-
men received a Camp Lemonnier familiarization,
learned about civil affairs teams and then traveled
to Kasenyi and Kabanga, Uganda to observe mil-
itary-to-military training at CJTF-HOA's Counter
Terrorism course.
Before returning to Camp Lemonier they vis-
ited the Uganda Peoples Defense Force Cadet
Academy and experienced the academy's obsta-
cle course.
The Red Lancers also gave the midshipmen
tours of the venerable P-3C Orion and answered
questions from the inquiring midshipmen about
how a VP squadron operates and the career paths
for maritime patrol naval flight officers and pilots
following graduation from the academy.

Sexual assault prevention top priority

From Commander, Navy
Installations Command
Public Affairs

The reduction of sex-

ual assault in the
Navy remains a top
priority for senior Navy
leadership. This week
the Department of the
Navy is hosting its first
Sexual Assault Prevention
Last week, Chief of Naval
Operations, Adm. Gary
Roughead, published his "CNO
Guidance for 2010" in which
he wrote that the Navy must
emphasize the reducing of sex-
ual assaults and "maintain our
focus on individual and unit
The Sexual Assault Victim
Intervention (SAVI) program
focuses on individual and unit
safety. Sexual assault erodes
morale, unit cohesion and oper-
ational readiness.
The SAVI program provides
a standardized, consistent, vic-
tim-sensitive system to prevent
and respond to sexual assaults
The program not only pro-
vides awareness and preven-
tive education to all Sailors
to prevent sexual assault, but
also offers victim advocacy and
intervention services to promote
a sensitive, coordinated and
effective management of sexual
assault cases.
The Navy was the first mili-
tary service to establish a dedi-
cated sexual assault program
to support victims, collect data
and focus on prevention.
When DoD policy was first
being written, SAVI was used
as a model for OSD and the
other services.
The SAVI Program is host-
ed under the Fleet and Family
Support Program.
"This is a reflection of the
Fleet and Family Support
Program's commitment to
developing self-reliant and
resilient Sailors and Navy
families," said Kathy Korth,
Commander, Navy Installation
Command's Family Readiness
program manager.
Prevention is SAVI's key
strategy for reducing sexual
assaults. Traditional prevention
programs were often based on
the myth that "stranger rape"
was the most prevalent form of
sexual assault.
As a result, programs would
focus on risk reduction for
potential victims, and changing

the behavior of women, often
resulting in victim blaming.
In reality, almost 65 percent
of unrestricted reports of sexual
assault in 2007 were commit-
ted by service members against
those who serve with them,
know them and trust them.
Most victims were sexually
assaulted in an environment
they considered safe.
SAVI has begun to focus
bystander intervention tech-
niques, ways for the witness
of a potential sexual assault
to intervene before the crime
occurs, as part of its overall pre-
vention effort.
"These techniques are built
on the solid Navy traditions of
mentoring and of sailors taking
care of their own shipmates,"
said Paul Finch, SAVI program
The SAVI Program is
designed to meet the needs of
sexual assault victims. If you
are a victim or if someone you
know is a victim:
Go to a safe location away
from the attacker.
Seek medical care as soon
as possible. Even if you do
not have any visible physical
injuries, you may be at risk of
becoming pregnant or acquiring
a sexually transmitted disease.
Ask the health care provider
at the medical facility to con-
duct a Sexual Assault Forensic
Examination, SAFE to preserve
forensic evidence, no mat-
ter which reporting option you
If you have been or ever
become a sexual assault vic-
tim, you can contact any Victim
Advocate (VA) or installa-
tion Sexual Assault Response
Coordinator (SARC) from any
base or branch 24/7 for help and
If you suspect you may
have been drugged, request that
a urine sample be collected.
Preserve all evidence of
the assault. Do not bathe, wash
your hands or brush your teeth.
Do not clean or straighten
up the scene.
Write down or record by
any means all the details you
can recall about the assault and
your assailant.
SAVI services are avail-
able whether or not the victim
knows the offender, whether the
victim or offender was using
drugs or alcohol, whether the
assault happened five minutes
ago or five years ago.

Chief petty officer selectees gather together in front of their Great White Fleet for a rendition

Newly selected chief
petty officers from
NAS Jacksonville

brought a bit of history
alive Sept. 11 when they
participated in the Great
White Fleet Boat Race
at the soccer field off
Yorktown Avenue.
Hundreds of family mem-
bers, friends and co-work-
ers came out to cheer the
11 teams on as they pulled
their "vessels" across the
field, stopping to answer
historical questions along
the way. If answered cor-
rectly, the teams were
allowed to move on to the
next stop. If not, they were
sent to the center of the
field to do laps for each
question they missed.

Fleet of 1908. "This was
a significant event in our
nation's history. It was
President Roosevelt's
attempt to show the world
that we were now a world

power to be reckoned with
and the Great White Fleet
was his tool," remarked
Hudson, NAS Jax com-
mand master chief. "By
tying this historical event
into our training exercise

we emphasis another criti-
cal expectation of the chief
petty officer. We are the
guardians of our Navy's
heritage. We are commit-
ted to remembering where
we came from and building
the strength of our current
Navy on the solid founda-
tion laid down by those who
went before us."
"This is a new training
environment for our chief
selectees. In the Navy and
only in the Navy, the rank
difference between E6 and
E7 is significant. It adds a
huge amount of responsi-
bility, so because of that,
we've come up with a very
intense six-week training

program and today's event
kind of culminates the
entire six-week program,"
continued Hudson. "As
chiefs they will be respon-
sible for attention to detail,
getting orders translated
to our Sailors, developing
and training our junior and
senior Sailors so we wrap
all that up into this boat
race event. It's an actual
race between vessels they
built themselves based on
very specific guidelines and
the only way they could
accomplish this is through
teamwork. Each team had

cers going through an
induction period so to be
able to reenact one of the
greatest events in our

and fun out of it is a great
thing," said AT1 Robert

Crenshaw to recognize

Vietnam-era veterans

From staff

F lorida 4th Congressional District
Vietnam-era veterans will receive
certificates of Special Recognition
from U.S. Representative Ander
Crenshaw in a ceremony slated for Nov.
10 at NAS Jacksonville. The application
deadline to receive the honor is October
"Vietnam veterans served our coun-
try with distinction during one of our
most tumultuous times as a nation,"
said Crenshaw. "They answered the call
to duty, but when they returned home,
many did not receive the recognition they
properly deserved. These brave individu-
als helped fight for freedom and democ-
racy at a time when their country needed
them, and this ceremony will help show
our appreciation."
In the past two years, Crenshaw has
recognized nearly 500 Vietnam vet-
erans eligible for either the Vietnam
Service Medal or the Vietnam Campaign
Medal. This year's ceremony will recog-
nize the contributions of all who served
in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the
Coast Guard and the Merchant Marines,
during the dates of the Vietnam War,
March 1, 1961 April 1975. Armed Forces
members who qualified for the Armed
Forces Expeditionary Medal by service in

Vietnam between July 1, 1958 and July
3, 1965 will also be recognized. Foreign
Service Officers with the U.S. Diplomatic
Corps members serving in Southeast Asia
during the periods above are also eligible
for special recognition.
If you are a Vietnam-era veteran, live in
the 4th Congressional District, and would
like to participate, contact Crenshaw's dis-
trict offices in Jacksonville (904-598-0481)
or Lake City (386-365-3316) or call toll free
888.755-5607 if you live in the 850 area
You may also go to www.Crenshaw. to obtain an application. Click
on Constituent Services, then Special
Events & Notices, and then on the
Vietnam Veterans Recognition Ceremony
to download the press release and applica-
tion. Completed applications and documen-
tation should be mailed to: 1061 Riverside
Ave., Suite 100, Jacksonville, FL 32204.
The application deadline is October 13.
To determine eligibility for the certifi-
cate, veterans must complete an applica-
tion and submit a copy of their service
discharge document or proof of service
in the Diplomatic Corps or Merchant
Marines. Veterans must be alive and a
current resident of the 4th Congressional
District of Florida to participate in this

Cholesterol: The good, the bad and the deadly

From Health Promotion by
the Ocean NS Mayport

The Health Promotion
Department at NS
Mayport recognizes
September as Cholesterol
Awareness Month.
Many people only think
of cholesterol in negative
terms. It is a risk fac-
tor for the development
of heart disease. But, did
you know that cholesterol
is an important component
of cell membranes and
it is vital to the structure
and function of the body's
cells? Cholesterol is also a
building block in the for-
mation of certain types of
hormones. Our bodies need
cholesterol to function prop-
Still, 37 million American
adults have high blood
cholesterol levels, and 105
million have cholesterol
levels that are higher than
desirable (hypercholes-
terolemia). If you're one
of these people with this
largely preventable condi-
tion, you may be on your
way to heart disease.
When the levels of cho-
lesterol and triglycerides,
a blood fat, in your blood-
stream become too high,
your likelihood of develop-


ing cholesterol-containing
fatty deposits (plaques) in
your blood vessels increas-
es. Over time, plaques
cause your arteries to nar-
row, which limits blood
flow and creates a condi-
tion called atheroscle-
rosis. Narrowing of the
arteries that supply your
heart with blood (coronary
artery disease) can pre-
vent your heart from get-
ting as much oxygen-rich
blood as it needs. This
means an increased risk of
a heart attack. Likewise,
decreased blood flow to
your brain can cause a
stroke. It is estimated that
if there were a 10 percent
reduction in cholesterol
levels throughout the U.S.
population, the rate of
heart disease would drop by
30 percent.
The good news is that
with the help of lifestyle
changes and possibly medi-
cations, you may be able to
lower your high blood cho-
lesterol. Lifestyle changes
are usually the first course
of action in trying to reduce
blood cholesterol levels.

Tomorrow he reenlists. .

By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor
Tomorrow my Sailor reen-
lists. I know that is not
earth-shaking news. There
will be no 'special news alert'
announcing the upcoming cer-
emony, no film at eleven. But in
this house it is!
Five weeks ago my husband
and I were having casual conver-
sations about his reenlistment
ceremony. Scott posed his idea
to reenlist at the Reagan Library
near Air Force One. We had three
months to plan the ceremony
so we focused on his next set of
orders. There was plenty of time
for reenlistment planning. That
was five weeks ago.
A little over four weeks ago,
Scott went to medical to have his
gallbladder checked. He is expe-
riencing 'gallbladder' symptoms
and there is a family history of
such issues. His doctor, a flight
surgeon, ordered an ultrasound of
the abdomen to confirm our suspi-
cions. This ultrasound confirmed


the gallbladder as the culprit but
that was not the only thing dis-
covered. The ultrasound revealed
'something' on Scott's kidney and
recommended follow-up.
Four weeks ago we learned
Scott has renal cell carcinoma
- kidney cancer. With that six-
letter word our world changed.
Cancer. The very word invokes
an indescribable fear. How 'bad'
is kidney cancer? Has it metas-
tasized? What is the prognosis?
Worry and fear becomes your con-
stant partner.
Wait Scott is in the midst of
reenlistment! He needs to be able
to pass a medical screening to
reenlist. Can he reenlist with can-
cer? If he can't then what? He
loses everything he has worked
for; a 16-year career gone. No
retirement, no job, no career, no
health insurance . and he has

Beth Wilson
This column is not about can-
cer. It is about a career, a Sailor.
My husband had a new, differ-
ent enemy to fight. He also had

to preserve a career he that he
loves. Over the past four weeks
I saw him research options, net-
work, make a plan, take action,
execute his plan and adapt all
the qualities and attributes that
make him a great Sailor and
a great leader. I witnessed his
strength, his faith in God, his
commitment to me, to our mar-
riage and his career and, yes, to
his country.
I discovered so much about my
husband through this crisis. Scott
could certainly get another job,
but he doesn't want another job.
He loves his career in the Navy.
He carries a proud tradition on
his shoulders, one he loves and
gladly bears.
Scott's fraternal grandmother
was a Navy WAVE during World
War II. His fraternal grandfather
also served in the Navy in World
War II. Scott's father served as a

'nuke IC' during the Vietnam era
and Scott proudly carries on the
tradition of naval service and is
the first to make it a career.
I used to joke that Scott bleeds
blue and gold. Faced with the pos-
sibility of a career change, I saw
the depth of my husband's devo-
tion to the Navy. His pride of ser-
vice transcends family tradition.
Though a humble, quiet man, my
husband wants to contribute to
the Navy mission through his per-
sonal service, sacrifice and com-
mitment to honor the oath he
swore. He will readily admit that
his part is small, but he is com-
mitted to fulfilling that part.
Tomorrow, Scott will reenlist.
It took a great effort to work
through the challenges to his
reenlistment but tomorrow he
will renew his oath. We still have
cancer and gall bladder surgery
before us, but tomorrow he reen-
lists. Tomorrow I will witness the
swearing of an oath by the man I
love the man who means each
word of that oath.

EPA raises the bar for Energy Star televisions
C' nn'lrmorq willI

save more money
and energy with
new requirements

From the Environmental
Protection Agency
The Environmental
Protection Agency
(EPA) has revised
the qualifications for tele-
visions to achieve the
Energy Star label, requir-
ing TVs to be 40 percent
more energy efficient than
conventional models.
These requirements will
help consumers save even
more energy and money
and fight climate change
by reducing greenhouse gas

emissions while allowing
them to continue to enjoy
the features, performance
and quality they expect.
Televisions meeting EPA's
new, more stringent Energy
Star specifications will be
available in stores nation-
wide starting May 1, 2010.
The new requirements
raise the bar on how ener-
gy efficient a TV must be
to earn the Energy Star
label. They require TVs
to use less energy when
turned on, ensure a satis-

factory level of brightness
and curb power associated
with downloading program
guide data. This all trans-
lates to big savings for
consumers and the envi-
ronment. If all televisions
sold in the United States
met the new Energy Star
requirements, Americans
would save $2.5 billion
annually in energy costs
while reducing annual
greenhouse gas emissions
equivalent to the emissions
of about 3 million cars.

With more than 19 mil-
lion TVs with screens larg-
er than 40 inches expected
to ship to American homes
in 2010, these Energy Star
requirements will offer
important savings in larger
size TVs.
For example, the new
requirements for 46 and 50
inch TV models will deliver
almost 50 percent savings
over conventional models
of the same size. The new
requirements announced
today demonstrate the
agency's continuing com-
mitment to helping con-
sumers find and purchase
the most efficient products
in this highly dynamic
product category.

New, improved Bingo coming

D., C / A

Dy idiiiiannon Luieonar
MWR Marketing Director

W e heard you.
The Morale,
Welfare and
Recreation (MWR) Depart-
ment recently chartered
a Customer Oriented
Service Improvement Team
(COSIT) to improve the
Bingo program for our cus-
tomers. MWR interviewed
159 Bingo patrons and
reviewed every customer
comment. The COSIT con-
sisted of MWR employ-
ees and Bingo customers.
The following issues were
addressed as follows:
1. Lines are too long to
buy cards Bingo is now
selling cards in two lines
instead of one line. Pick
sheets have been created so
the customer has an easier
time selecting which cards
they wish to purchase prior
to getting in line.
2. Restrooms cleanliness/

Fleet R

working This problem
arises when restroom drain
lines are backing up. The
Zone submits trouble calls
as soon as the appearance
of a problem arises. It is
understandable the incon-
venience this brings in the
middle of playing Bingo.
The plumbing issue is the
major reason the new club
project has been funded for
NAS Jacksonville.
3. Fake Bingo calling by
customer in order to "catch-
up" Trying to regulate
what is and what is not a
fake Bingo call is difficult
to determine. Out of respect
for all of our customers we
can only attribute this to
honest mistakes.
4. Food service provider
not available The Zone
has one central food prep-
aration area serving the
Brew House, Bingo and
CPO patrons. The food ser-
vice provider must go to

September is back-to-school month
for most of the nation and the per-
fect time for the Fleet Reserve
Association (FRA) to kick off its 2010
scholarship season. Applications are now
available at for
students to apply for nearly 30 scholar-
ships for the 2010-2011 academic year.
The FRA scholarship program has
helped deserving students reach their
educational and professional goals for
decades, presenting annual awards of up
to $5,000 to FRA members, their spous-
es, children and grandchildren who are
pursuing college degrees. The awards are
funded through private donations, estab-
lished trusts and corporate sponsorships.
Recipients are selected based on financial
need, academic standing, character and
leadership qualities. Scholarship applica-
tions must be mailed to FRA no later than
April 15, 2010.
"We're looking forward to expanding the
reach of our existing scholarship program
with the launch of a new education founda-
tion in October," explains FRA National
Executive Director Joe Barnes. "Thanks to
the generosity of our members, legacy gifts

and corporate sponsors, the scope of the pro-
gram has grown substantially since 2000;

Navy's PT Program keeps Sailors in shape 2EricGlaserof

By AM3(AW) Nicole Bieneman
Staff Writer

Physical fitness is an essential and critical com-
ponent of readiness. It is a state of being that
includes strong, flexible muscles and an efficient
system for getting oxygen and nutrients to the body. In
order to accomplish this goal, the Navy provides fitness
centers and equipment, fitness professionals, command
fitness leaders, and the semi-annual physical readiness
test (PRT).
This test is designed to measure flexibility, muscular
endurance and aerobic capacity. The Navy PRT consists of
a 1.5-mile run, sit-ups and push-ups. Also swimming 500
meters for time is an option instead of the run. According
to NAS Jacksonville Command Fitness Leader ADCS
James Babb, "Sailors who fail three PRTs within four
years are going to be asked to administratively separate
from the Navy, so we have really upgraded our Fitness
Enhancement Program making it more effective for our
Sailors. We train five days a week, from 7 to 9 a.m. Its 60
to 90 minutes of intense cardio."
"Cardiovascular activities, such as running and swim-
ming, help the heart, lungs and blood vessels become
more effective at delivering to the muscles what they need
to function-oxygen and glucose," continued Babb.
Sailors may actually use the same muscular, strength
and endurance, aerobic functions, balance, coordination
and flexibility they use when exercising as they do during
their day-to-day jobs in the Navy. Exercise helps by caus-
ing physical changes inside your body that help it to bet-

ter handle stress as well. It improves mood and the ability
to concentrate.
"I have a team of nine command fitness leaders at NAS
Jacksonville," Babb said. "They are motivated. They live
it, learn it, sleep it, eat it; it's just in their blood. That's
exactly what we need Sailors who are motivated to help
those who have no motivation. Not only is about exercise,
but it's also about nutrition. We also have the Wellness
Center here that offers the ShipShape courses and nutri-
tion classes every other F'id.iy."
"I love our PT program. It really helps us a lot and we
have a great passing rate for PRTs," stated YNSA Daniel
White of VR-62.
AZC Tania Diefburg, command fitness leader of VR-62,
is getting her Sailors ready for the PRT early. "We just
moved down here from Brunswick, so what I'm trying to
do is get my Sailors used to the climate change. On Aug.
1, we started doing mock PRTs every Fi'id.iy to get them
used to the site here and the humidity. We train three
times a week doing regular calisthenics and some running
drills. I feel that if they practice three months out, then
they will be ready. It's a team thing, everyone wants to
pass, so our goal is to make that happen," said Diefburg.
While you may or may not be ready to make all the
changes it takes to achieve maximum fitness, you're prob-
ably ready to do something. Each day do something, and
days when you aren't able to get moving, don't get discour-
aged, just plan ahead for the next day. Building new hab-
its, even positive ones, takes work, so don't get discour-
aged by temporary setbacks.

New labor contract up for vote

By Mary Anne Broderick Tubman
CNRSE Public Affairs
Navy Region Southeast
(NRSE), the Naval
Facilities Engineering
Command (NAVFAC) Southeast,
and the Fleet Industrial Supply
Center (FISC) Jacksonville
reached agreement Aug. 8 with
the American Federation of
Government Employees (AFGE)
on a new master labor contract
that will cover approximately
4,000 personnel at installations
throughout the region.
The parties utilized a pro-
cess known as interest-based
bargaining, which replaces tra-
ditional positional bargaining
with a process of joint problem
solving. The six-day session,
which was held at the Federal
Aviation Administration Center
for Management and Executive
Leadership in Palm Coast, Fla.,
was facilitated by the Federal
Mediation and Conciliation
Service (FMCS), an indepen-
dent agency headquartered in
Washington, D.C., which provides
mediation services to industry,
government agencies and com-

munities through the promotion
of labor-management cooperation.
The current contract, which
was negotiated in 2001, was
a master labor agreement for
NRSE before the region was con-
solidated with Navy Region Gulf
Coast and Navy Region South in
the 2005 BRAC. The proposed
master labor contract, which
incorporates 14 AFGE labor
agreements in effect at various
installations, was renegotiated at
the request of AFGE to include
"We're all very pleased with
the end product of our negotia-
tion process," said Mark McCabe,
chief negotiator for AFGE and
local union president at NSB
Kings Bay. "The new agreement
is much more employee-friend-
ly than the last, in spite of the
fact that it covers a significantly
greater number of people and is
more focused on a regional pic-
The proposed agreement will
serve as a master labor con-
tract for AFGE members at
NRSE Headquarters; Naval
Air Station Jacksonville, Fla.;
Naval Station Mayport, Fla.;

Naval Submarine Base Kings
Bay, Ga.; Naval Support Activity
Orlando, Fla.; Naval Air Station
Key West, Fla.; Naval Support
Activity Panama City, Fla.; Naval

Miss.; Construction Battalion
Center Gulfport, Miss.; Naval Air
Station Joint Reserve Base Ft.
Worth, Texas; Naval Air Station
Kingsville, Texas; Naval Air
Station Corpus Christi, Texas;
and Naval Weapons Station
Charleston, S.C.
A total of 38 articles related to
conditions of work are contained
in the proposed contract. They
include labor/management rela-
tions and training, safety, job and
position descriptions, employ-
ee/employer/union rights and
responsibilities, hours of work,
overtime, grievance procedures,
and use of the alternative dis-
pute resolution process. Another
enhancement provided by the
proposed agreement is that it will
serve both management and labor
across multiple command lines.
"While all contract negotiations
are demanding, this one was suc-

cessful because we were able to
work toward a middle ground to
create a contract that will serve
both management and labor,"
said Jim Rountree, regional
business manager at NRSE and
principal negotiator for the man-
agement group. "Having a rela-
tionship built on mutual respect
allowed us to talk freely with
each other and find solutions of
interest to all parties."
Now that negotiations are com-
plete, the membership of each
AFGE local chapter has until
Sept. 16 to vote on the proposed
contract. If ratified, the con-
tract will be signed by members

of management and the union,
and forwarded to the Office of
the Secretary of Defense (OSD)
for approval. The contract could
become effective by the end of
Once approved by OSD, the
new contract will remain in effect
for three years, with the option
to extend through the mutual
agreement of all affected parties.
Comprehensive training covering
every aspect of the new agree-
ment will be provided. The con-
tract will also be posted on the
CNIC Gateway and distributed
on CD to employees without
NMCI access.

Common medications may

increase sun sensitivity
From the Skin Cancer Foundation

From common antibiotics to heart
medications certain drugs can
increase sun sensitivity causing the
skin to burn faster than normal. Studies
have shown that certain medications may
act as photosensitizing agents that may
increase the incidence of skin cancer.
"It's absolutely fine to take these med-
ications, it is just that some people tak-
ing these drugs may need to be extra dili-
gent about sun protection," said Deborah
Sarnoff, MD, vice president of the Skin
Cancer Foundation.
Phototoxic reactions typically appear
as exaggerated sunburn, which can occur
within minutes or up to 24 hours after
exposure to the photosensitizing medica-
tion and UV light. The reaction is limited
to sun-exposed skin and may or may not be
itchy and sore. In severe reactions, blisters
may occur.
Photo-allergic reactions, which can
appear all over the body, typically do not
occur until one to three days after the sub-
stance enters the body and the immune
system mounts a response to the allergen.
Photo-allergy, like other allergies, tends to
occur in previously sensitized individuals
and is generally caused by topical medica-
tions or cosmetic ingredients such as musk
ambrette, sandalwood oil and bergamot
oil. Repeat exposure to the same allergen
plus UVR exposure can prompt itching, red
bumps, scaling and oozing lesions similar to
While there are many medications includ-
ing over-the-counter pain relievers (such as
ibuprofen), oral contraceptives and antide-
pressants that may cause some type of pho-
totoxic or photo-allergic reaction, the most
common include antibiotics (Tetracylines,
Flouroquinolones, Sulfonamides), diuret-
ics (Furosemide, Hydrochlorothiazide),
and oral and topical retinoids (Isotretinoin,
Acitretin, Tazarotene, Tretinoin).
"Photosensitivity will vary based on the

individual," said Dr. Sarnoff. "Two people
can take the same medication and one will
have a reaction and the other won't. The
key to preventing a phototoxic reaction is
patient education and taking the proper
Seek shade: If outside for any length of
time, find a pavilion roof or large, leafy tree
to stay under. Or, carry shade with you -
bring a sun umbrella.
Wear protective clothing: All clothing
provides some degree of sun protection,
however, densely woven and bright- or
dark-colored fabrics provide greater sun
defense. Long sleeves and long pants cover
more of the body, while a broad-brimmed
hat helps protect face, ears, and back of
the neck. For all-day activities in the sun,
people with photosensitivity may want to
opt for specially formulated sun protective-
clothing with a UPF of 50.
Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with
an SPF of at least 30. For people with pho-
tosensitivity, the higher the SPF, the bet-
ter. In addition, be sure the sunscreen con-
tains ingredients such avobenzone, oxy-
benzone, mexoryl, zinc oxide, or titanium
dioxide that protect against UVA rays.
Use the right amount of sunscreen.
Most people use only about half of what
they really need. People with heightened
sun sensitivity need to be sure they use at
least 1 oz (two tablespoons) on their body
and an amount the size of a nickel on their
Apply sunscreen one-half hour before
sun exposure: This gives it time to fully
absorb and bind to your skin.
Reapply sunscreen every two hours,
since sunscreen gradually breaks down in
the sun and wears off. Also reapply imme-
diately after swimming or sweating heavily.
Armed with the right information, pho-
tosensitivity can easily be managed. For
additional sun safety and skin cancer infor-
mation, visit

Area Sales
This is ridiculous! Week
after week I run ads for
different departments in
my organization & get
limited response. There
are no gimmicks, no
surprises & and no hid-
den factors. We have
everything anybody else
can offer, in other
words, not lust a great
income, but all the good-
ies too! Commissions &
Incentives, vacations,
trips, rewards, health,
dental, life & vision
insurance and a 401(k).
Starting income, up to
$45K-$75K per year. You
can even qualify for a
$2,500.00 signing bonus.
Sounds good so far,
doesn't it? That's why I
can't understand why in
the world you wouldn't
investigate this opportu-
nity. This week I'm hir-
ing for sales in our
Jacksonville office: No
Experience necessary,
we will train you.
