NAS Jacksonville welcomes




'Swamp Foxes' to new home

By Lt. Adam Shreders ""


The HSL-44 "Swamp
Foxes"- formerly home-
ported at NS Mayport -
took custody of their new spaces
Nov. 2 in Hangar 1122 at NAS
Jacksonville. Overcoming many
logistical challenges, the squad-
ron set a high standard for the
Navy's East Coast SH-60B
Seahawk fleet, by completing
their move to NAS Jacksonville
and executing flight operations in
just six working days.
The new hangar at NAS
Jacksonville was built to facili-
tate the HSL community's transi-
tion to the HSM community as
the Swamp Foxes prepare for the
arrival of their next-generation
MH-60R "Romeo" multi-mission
helicopters in late 2010.
"Most of us have never worked
in a new Navy hangar, so this
is a big deal," said HSL-44
Commanding Officer Cmdr. Rich
Davis. "Our shops and adminis-
trative spaces are first rate and

our view of the river from the
hangar and seawall is gorgeous."
Davis explained that HSL-
44's move to NAS Jacksonville
is driven by the Navy Helicopter


Concept of Operations (CONOPS)
approved by CNO in 2002. It
was formerly known as the Navy
Helicopter Master Plan.
"Under CONOPS, the SH-60B


and SH-60F variants are being
replaced by the MH-60R (Romeo)
and the HH-60H is being
replaced by the MH-60S (Sierra).

Looking back to 1952...


File Photo
A civilian aircrew flight tests a Sikorsky S-55 after it was refurbished at NAS Jax Overhaul & Repair. The Navy received
119 of the three-blade main rotor aircraft between August 1950 and January 1958. Its most distinctive feature was the
powerful Pratt & Whitney piston engine located in the nose. Sikorsky also designed this helicopter for easy mainte-
nance. The engine, for example, could be changed in two hours, without special equipment, and daily inspections took
a maximum of 15-20 minutes.




My Flight on the KC-135, Part I


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor

In mid-December, 12 years after
my first and only flight on an air-
plane, I was surprised to wake
up feeling excited and adventurous,
not afraid, about my ride in a KC-135
with the 101st Air Refueling Wing
with the Maine Air National Guard in
Bangor.
Of course, I had to wake up earlier
than normal for the morning brief, so
maybe I was still half asleep when my
friend Sandy picked me up (Dustin
volunteered to take the kids to school
so that I could "focus" . . . on being
scared?) and asked, "How do you feel?
Are you nervous?"
"Not really. I feel great," I said.
My tone began to change, however,
when we pulled onto the base and the
runway looked like it was breathing
snow. A white dusting, almost like a
fog, rolled along the ground. I thought
about the way my car behaves when I
brake suddenly in the snow and tried
to compare that to a 300,000 pound
tanker. Suddenly, I needed to use the
bathroom.
Several KC-135s parked near the
runway rose from the mist of white
like giant elephants standing in a
line. I worried that the aircraft might
fly like an elephant, too.
"All the snow will burn off by the
time you fly," Sandy said.
I swallowed hard and went into the
operations building where 15 other
civilians were already seated in the
auditorium and waiting for the pre-
flight brief.
It's important to note here that this
event was not specifically arranged
for me or the other passengers, a mix
of city officials and spouses or employ-
ers of the members of the 101st. The
military does not spend taxpayer
money frivolously, and nothing hap-
pens that doesn't support the overall


mission. On Tuesday, that mission
was a training exercise refueling a
KC-10 in mid-air.
Occasionally, however, when there is
extra space, the 101st invites spouses
and civilian employees aboard as a
way to thank them for the support
they give service members of the Air
National Guard. They also invite the
media to help the public better under-
stand what the 101st does. "[Our mis-
sion] is sometimes invisible and we
need you to understand what we do,"
said Col. Doug Farnham, the day's co-
pilot, during the brief.
That understanding is critical
because the 101st is largely made up
of traditional guardsmen and women
who rely on civilian employers to
work around service members' Drill
Weekends and deployments. On Sept.
11, 2001, for example, 98 percent of
the wing was recalled to the base
within three hours. That amounts to
hundreds of temporarily abandoned
civilian jobs. Yet, as Farnham noted,
employers continue to be overwhelm-
ingly supportive of the increased
tempo of military responsibilities
since that time. Public outreaches,
such as this flight, certainly help.
Dustin had arrived from taking the
kids to school before the brief began.
He sat in the seat next to mine and
squeezed my hand. This moment had
been a long time coming. After 12
years of encouraging me to fly again,
Dustin was finally getting his wish. I
knew that his excitement about shar-
ing his life's passion with me was sim-
ilar to the joy I feel when he experi-
ences glimpses of my world at book
signing and speaking events. Having
me in the plane with him would be
like me knowing Dustin is in the audi-




HEY, MONEYCHIC!


Hey, MoneyChic:
I'm new to the military and have
just "discovered" the commissary.
What great deals! I'm definitely sav-
ing money compared to shopping in
my neighborhood grocery store. I'm
not sure about the protocol with the
baggers though? I saw a sign that
said they worked for tips. What is an
appropriate tip amount?
MoneyChic says: Good question.
On my first-ever visit to the commis-
sary, my bagger only received a giant
"thank you" for his service. I soon
learned that the baggers work ONLY
for tips. I spoke with Jesse, in man-
agement, at the local commissary. He
said the commissary really didn't like
to give any guidelines for tipping, it
was up to each customer. He did how-
ever share that unlike some profes-
sions, like waitressing, where a server
ooo


ence when I am on stage speaking.
The final brief was about safety. We
were instructed on where to escape
from the aircraft in case of an emer-
gency and how to use the personal
oxygen device, something similar
to putting a Jiffy Pop bag over your
heard, if the cabin lost pressurization.
My stomach was in knots. Dustin got
up to find the bathroom while I strug-
gled to contain my nervous laughter
throughout the rest of the brief. While
Dustin was beside me, I felt calm.
When he left, I was nervous again. So
I was relieved when I saw him return
from the bathroom. It was almost
time to board the airplane.
Dustin took a seat one away from
mine this time and motioned for me to
lean over to him. He whispered in my
ear: "I just threw up in the bathroom."
And then, because he knew what I
was going to ask: "I'm not kidding."
I knew he wasn't. All three of our
children had just recovered from the
stomach flu. Dustin's face looked as
pale and sweaty as theirs did over the
weekend.
"I can't go on the flight with you,"
Dustin said. "But I'll be watching
from the ground. I promise."
I felt frozen with fear. I was tempted
to back out.
"You can do this, Sarah," Dustin
said.
Soon after, Lt. Col. Kelley, my new
best friend (you'll learn why next
week), asked us to make our way to
the bus that would take us to the
KC-135.
Dustin hugged me tight and whis-
pered in my ear that he was proud.
For a moment, I wished that it was
me who had thrown up in the bath-
room.


receives a small base pay in addition
to tips, the baggers in the commis-
sary are only paid with the tips that
shoppers give them. Tips are always
appreciated, but never more so than
this time of the year. After consult-
ing with friends and colleagues I've
found that tip amounts range from
$2-$6. There are many factors that
may come into play on this decision.
How many bags are they loading? (3
bags or 20?) How efficient are they
at loading your car? (fast or slow) Do
they point out the bread and eggs to
you so they may be handled careful-
ly? Are they friendly? These are just
a few points that I had mentioned
to me when in discussion about this
question. Your tip amount is really up
to you, just make sure you tip some-
thing and a little extra might make
somebody's day.

CNO



Roughead



cycles with



wounded



vets in



Jacksonville

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy Public Affairs Officer


The last leg of the Ride 2 Recovery Florida Bike
Challenge, which started Dec. 12 at MacDill Air Force
Base in Tampa, to raise awareness and support for
wounded warriors, ended in Jacksonville Dec. 17.
Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Gary Roughead
along with Sailors from NAS Jacksonville and NS
Mayport and other cylists joined the wounded warriors
in a 50-mile bike ride from the World Golf Village in St.
Augustine to NS Mayport Dec. 17.
"I'm here today to ride with these great young people,
who are such an inspiration. We have several wounded
warriors participating in this event which requires tre-
mendous commitment, dedication and drive. Not only are
they a great inspiration to one another, but most impor-
tantly, they are an inspiration to anyone who sees this.
They have been injured and have given greatly in a time
of war, yet they are driving on. They are the perfect exam-
ple of what one gentleman here said, 'life goes on,'" said an
enthusiastic Roughead before the ride.
"I can't think of a better way to spend the day
than with these great Sailors, soldiers, airmen and
Marines who have given so much for their country."
Fifteen members from Team Navy Jax also participated in
the ride.
"It's inspiring for me to see how well these guys have
recovered. I was in Fallujah, Iraq, during the invasion of
Fallujah and ran a surgical unit there. I've seen the inju-
ries so many of our troops have sustained," stated Naval
Hospital Jacksonville Commanding Officer Capt. Bruce
Gillingham.
"So, it's great to see how well these wounded war-
riors have recovered. And, to see them getting out and
participating in an event like this is just fantastic."
As the cyclists geared up and prepared themselves for
the ride, some of the wounded warriors talked about their
experiences and why the ride was so important to them.
"I'm here to support fellow injured troops. Riding my
bike helps me in my recovery and also shows newly
injured guys that you can get up and get about and have
an active lifestyle after your injuries," remarked Sam Cila,
who retired from the New York National Guard in April.
Cila was hit by a roadside bomb July 4, 2005 while
serving in Iraq. He lost his left hand and is recovering
from heart surgery and bullet wounds. "This is an awe-
some event and I love being a part of it," he said. Cila is
sponsored by the Challenged Athletes Foundation and
competes in numerous athletic events around the country
raising awareness for wounded warriors.
Retired Army Sgt. Noah Galloway, a dou-
ble amputee who was injured by a roadside
bomb Dec. 19, 2005, also participated in the ride.
"It's great participating in these events. I started running
when I came home because I was physically fit before
my injuries and wanted to continue to be. But it was too
hard on my stump on my leg to run. So to be introduced
to cycling has been a big help to me both emotionally and
physically. Cycling is a lower impact sport and it has me
out there trying to get back into shape and push myself,"
explained Galloway.
"This whole week has been great and today is the final
day riding - it's so exciting to get to the end and to be able
to say 'you did it."'
As the cyclists took off for Mayport under bright blue
skies and a strong headwind, they anxiously anticipated
the end of the ride and the celebration to highlight their
accomplishment, including a special tribute to the wound-
ed warriors at the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis
Colts football game later that evening.

the AN/AAS-44(V) FLIR legacy system.
This unique collaboration between the TSRS Shop and
Raytheon began in 2004. The program's success earned
FRCSE the prestigious 2009 Shingo Bronze Medallion for
Operational Excellence.
The goal is to take these successes and apply them to the
new FLIR sensor technology.
FRCSE utilizes NAVAIR's AIRSpeed initiative, which
is a set of process improvement methodologies. Lean, Six
Sigma, and the Theory of Constraints are toolkits under
the AIRSpeed umbrella to spur employee-driven change
for reducing costs and improving quality and cycle time
throughout the center.
All Helicopter Anti-Submarine Light (HSL) squadrons
that receive the Romeo and Sierra models will be re-desig-
nated Helicopter Maritime Strike (HSM). The "Spartans"

By Lt. Pat Thomas
CPRW 11 PAO

commander Patrol and Recon-
naissance Wing (CPRW) 11
held its first Anti-submarine
Warfare (ASW) Symposium in
November. Led by CPRW-11
Weapons and Tactics Unit (WTU),
the symposium encompassed two
days of ASW simulator competition
and training presentation focused on
fleet lessons identified. Participants
included the VP-5 "Mad Foxes,"
VP-16 "War Eagles," VP-8 "Fighting
Tigers" and VP-62 "Broad Arrows."
The simulator competition, also
known as "The Commodore's Cup,"
was unique as each squadron pro-
vided their best junior Sailor crew


and their best senior Sailor crew.
ASW is a critical mission that the
P-3 provides for the Navy. CPRW-
11 Commodore Capt. Mark Turner
initiated the cup as a way to fuse the
experience among the senior Sailors
with the tactical knowledge of the
junior Sailors - to create an environ-
ment of teamwork and competition to
increase on-station effectiveness.
The competition among the dif-
ferent squadrons was evident in the
days leading up to the event. Each
crew was competing for the coveted
Commodore's Cup, as well as brag-
ging rights among the squadrons as
the best ASW crew. In addition to the
simulator, each squadron presented
an advanced lecture on an applicable
ASW topic.


The topics presentation led to a
spirited discussion among the 150
squadron attendees. The purpose of
the presentations was not simply to
repeat tactical doctrine, but to apply
the data from real-world experience
and improve the capabilities of the
P-3 while reducing its limitations.
The presenters made recommen-
dations to the aircrew in attendance,
who in turn ensured the lesson of the
presentation was valid. Several new
points of focus and tactical lessons
were derived from the topics discussed.
The ultimate winners were the
VP-5 Greybeards, an aircrew consist-
ing of khaki-level officers and enlisted
operators with many years of experi-
ence in the aircraft. The Commodore's
Cup will be held quarterly.

instrument display system. It all adds up to more
robust operational capability with lower training,
logistics and other life-cycle costs," said Davis.
"CONOPS also consolidates the HS, HSL and HC
communities into two communities populated by HSM
(Romeo) and HSC (Sierra) squadrons. These new com-
munities will deploy as traditional air wing squadrons
on board a strike group's aircraft carrier," said Davis.
By deploying both an HSM and an HSC squadron
with the strike group, the air wing commander gains
face-to-face communications with the two squadron
COs who control all helicopters in the strike group.
Davis added, "When the HSL-to-HSM transition is
complete, there will be Romeo squadrons homeported
at both NAS Jacksonville and NS Mayport. The dif-
ference is that Mayport-based HSM squadrons will
continue to provide Seahawk detachments to Navy
expeditionary combatants (cruisers, destroyers and
frigates) that deploy independently of carrier strike
groups.
HSL-44 is currently assigned 14 SH-60B Seahawks.
January and March will see the deployment of their
final three SH-60B detachments. Near the end of
2010, they are scheduled to receive the first of 11
MH-60R Seahawks, at which time the Swamp Foxes
will be designated HSM-74.
Two additional SH-60B squadrons (HSL-42 and
HSL-46) are slated to move from NS Mayport to NAS
Jacksonville in 2010.
The Swamp Foxes' homeport change was led by Lt.
Diana Hess and her handpicked team of officers and
chief petty officers who coordinated the movement of
14 aircraft, 30 tons of support equipment and tools,
as well as six tons of COMSEC (communications secu-
rity) materials.
Among others, she commended Lt. j.g. Josh
Campbell who coordinated the move of the entire
maintenance department with no loss of material or
equipment.
IT2 Brenda Langer and IT3 Christina Stout mini-
mized squadron down time by having email and phone
lines operating within two days of assuming custody of
the spaces. They also relocated more than 100 comput-
ers.
To make their new spaces feel more familiar, AWRC
Bradley Davis and the 1st Lieutenant Division moved
all the squadron's historical awards and plaques prior
to the arrival of squadron personnel.
AW1 Matt Jirrels had the squadron's auxiliary
resale outlet fully stocked and operational on day one
- which enabled to the squadron's MWR fund to oper-
ate with no loss of income for the month.
In addition to the accomplishments listed above, the
squadron also deployed Detachment 4, "The Amazing
Love Crusade," onboard USS Hue City (CG-66). The
"Time Killers" of Detachment 6 flew 30 hours in sup-
port of Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center opera-
tions at Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center
in the Bahamas.

VP-26


deploys


across


the


world

By Lt. j.g. Bryce Aubuchon
VP-26 PAO
F following months of
extensive prepara-
tion, the "Tridents"
of VP-26 recently head-
ed overseas as the last
operational P-3 squad-
ron to deploy from NAS
Brunswick, Maine.
VP-26 completed turn-
overs with three different
squadrons in four wide-
spread locations on Dec. 3
- assuming three different
operational task groups in
support of four different
geographic combatant com-
manders.
"The squadron is sepa-
rated by 10 time zones from
east to west, yet we are
using technology to ensure
we communicate between
all sites to overcome chal-
lenging and dynamic cir-
cumstances," said VP-26
Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Mike Parker.
With so much real estate
to cover, the Tridents have
their work cut out for
them. Nevertheless, they
hit the ground running
and assumed their respec-
tive duties at each site with
mission accomplishment in
mind.
The squadron is fly-
ing a variety of missions,
including those in support
of counter-drug operations
in Central America, mari-
time surveillance in the

Mediterranean,
and anti-piracy
efforts off the
Horn of Africa. W
Following
this six-month
deployment, the
men and women Os0i
of VP-26 will
return to NAS Jacksonville
and join the other former
NAS Brunswick squad-
rons as the newest mem-
bers of Commander, Patrol
and Reconnaissance Wing
(CPRW) 11.
In the meantime, the
Tridents are taking advan-
tage of the unique oppor-
tunities associated with
their respective deployment
sites.
"Squadron morale at all
four detachments is high
and the Sailors are look-
ing forward to exploring
the culture outside the
gates," said CMDCM Jose
Lamoglia.
"We have a group of
enlisted personnel and offi-
cers, who are coordinat-
ing Morale, Welfare and
Recreation activities as
well as educational oppor-
tunities for our Sailors to
take advantage of while we
are deployed."
In addition to further-
ing the development of its
Sailors, the Tridents are
extending their services
to their hosting communi-
ties. In the Horn of Africa,
the squadron has adopted
a local orphanage, spend-
ing time with the children
and providing resources to
ensure the children had a
Christmas that won't soon


be forgotten.
"It's excit-
ing with the
squadron spread
out across the
world," said
SAWO2 Toby
i\Wa Elkins, an air-
crew member
on his first deployment
and currently operating in
Central America.
"It's a great chance to see
different missions and be
able to make a personal dif-
ference in a real-world sce-
nario."
On the homefront, the
families of Trident mem-
bers are making adjust-
ments and overcoming
challenges now that their
Sailors have departed on
deployment.
Thanks to a compre-
hensive squadron BRAC
plan and support from
CPRW-11, the transition
and move for the fami-
lies is going smoothly. In
fact, more than 50 fami-
lies have already made the
move from Brunswick to
Jacksonville, with more to
follow.
When the dust settles
and the Tridents return
home, over 140 families will
have made the transition to
Northeast Florida.
It is still early in their
deployment, but the
Tridents are proud to have
gotten off to a strong start.
VP-26 Sailors are confi-
dent that they will not only
maintain momentum, but
pick up the pace, overcom-
ing any challenges that
arise along the way.

embers of the VP-26 "Tridents",
currently in the Seychelles, host-
ed a group of local orphans on
Dec. 11. The guests of the day included
more than 50 children from St. Elizabeth
Orphanage, located on the island. The
children ranged in age from three to 12,
with the youngest showing they were par-
ticularly anxious for the ensuing festivi-
ties.
Events began with a lunch served by
squadron Sailors. Following the holiday
feast, VP-26 Sailors AWF2 Andrew Wray
and AWO2 Tonya Wright performed an
array of Christmas carols while the young
guests sang and danced along.
"There is no better way to share the sea-
sonal spirit than through music and car-
ols," noted Wray. During the gala an unex-
pected appearance by Santa Claus sur-
prised the jubilant children. One by one,
the children took turns sitting on Santa's
lap, while gifts provided by members of the
squadron were distributed amongst the
children.
"It is an absolute honor to be able to
bring the joy of Christmas to these young


children and to represent VP-26 in the
Seychelles," said AWOC Anjenelle Kelly,
who was responsible for the majority of the
planning. After the merriment, the holiday
songs continued while friendly games of
pick-up soccer and baseball were enjoyed
by squadron members and the children.
The day eventually came to a close.
However, it was easy to see that fast
friendships had been made between the
members of VP-26 and numerous children
in the Seychelles. Over waves of "Merry
Christmas" and "Au Revoir," the children
departed, with both groups holding fond
memories of the exciting holiday celebra-
tion.
Commenting on the day's activities, Lt.
j.g. John Medwid said, "Despite differences
in cultures and language, the holiday spir-
it and message is universal. The season
touches us all."
VP-26 recently began a six-month multi-
site deployment, with crews and aircraft
spread across ten time zones in Southern
Command, European Command and
African Command areas of responsibil-
ity. The squadron deployed from NAS
Brunswick, Maine and is scheduled
to return to its new homeport at NAS
Jacksonville in June 2010.

Public Works Department Jack-
sonville hosted a group of
Construction Management stu-
dents from the University of North
Florida to tour several construction
projects at NAS Jacksonville Dec. 11.
These students are part of the
local Society of American Military
Engineers (SAME) local chapter.
SAME is dedicated to advance the
knowledge of the science of military
engineering and promote engineering
education through scholarships, pro-
viding continuing education opportu-
nities and mentoring programs such
as this one.
"The students were interested in
taking a tour of active construction
projects, to apply their classroom
knowledge to a real world scenario,"
said Lt. Cmdr. Steve Mauro, facili-
ties engineering and acquisition divi-
sion ((FEAD) officer for Public Works
Department Jacksonville.
The tour was lead by Art Mosley,
supervisory engineering technician;
Mauro and Tim Gysan, the local
Jacksonville SAME Post representa-
tive. The tour started with a visit
to the $30 million NAS Jax Hospital
addition and renovation project.
"The project provided a great exam-
ple for the students to see how the
skills they are learning in the class-
room will be applied in the field once
they graduate," said Mosley.
The tour and discussion focused on
planning and preparation of the sig-

nificant activities required to carry
out a project of this complexity, like
deconflicting overhead space require-
ments for mechanical, electrical and
plumbing trades and site layout of
underground utilities to ensure con-
duits and pipes are in the appropriate
location according to the drawings.
The students soon learned that it
was easy to see that making a mis-
take in either of these areas during
the planning and preparation phases
of work would cost a great deal of
time and money to the contractor to
fix later.
"They were also very interested in
learning how to manage a complex
schedule and how to organize the
trades, so they are not working in the


same areas at the same time creating
congestion and reduced productivity,"
said Mauro.
Finally, the students were afforded
the opportunity to visit Hangar 511,
the new $124 million hangar facility
that was recently completed, to show
what the final product of a properly
planned and executed project looks
like.
The new hangar is now home to the
P-3 squadrons relocating from Maine
as a result of the 2005 BRAC.
"Nothing beats hands-on learn-
ing and that is often absent in the
classroom setting," said Matt Young,
SAME vice president, UNF Post. "All
of the UNF construction guys really
enjoyed the trip."

Families


enjoy


a snowy


day at


NAS Jax

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO
Hundreds of military
members and their
families came out
to enjoy an afternoon frol-
icking in the snow Dec. 19
during the annual Tropical
Freeze event.
The chilly temperatures
provided the perfect set-
ting as the blizzard hit
NAS Jacksonville near the
Mulberry Cove Marina giv-
ing children and their par-
ents the unique opportunity
to sled down a hill and have
a massive snowball fight.
The event is sponsored
by the Morale, Welfare
and Recreation (MWR)
Department and brings in
a company to create a hill-
side of snow with a special
snow-blowing machine.
The children had a blast
getting wet and muddy as
they slid on saucers and
pelted one another with
snowballs.
Unfortunately, it only
lasted that afternoon as the
wintry wonderland soon
melted away.
"This is really fun - we
get to throw snowballs!
And, we get to sled down
the hill, although I fell off
the saucer and ended up
sliding down on my back. I
haven't seen snow since I
was a baby so this is real-
ly great," said 8-year-old
Caitlyn Cook.

other ones we put on. It's
all about wintertime fun in
a location that you really
can enjoy until your fingers
freeze. It gives the kids an
opportunity to go sledding
in Florida," explained YAC
Director Aaron Long.
Workers began creating


the snow early in the morn-
ing, using about 20 tons of
ice to create the sledding
trail and a snow area where
the children and their par-
ents entertained them-
selves by bombarding one
another with snowballs.
The sledding trail proved
to be exciting for the young-


sters and some parents who
were brave enough, wind-
ing through slick bends on
small plastic saucers that
kept them spinning out of
control. As they happily
trudged back up the hill
with their saucers, they
anxiously got back in line
for another turn.

Blackston retires with




more than 30 years service

From VP-30 Public Affairs I


AFCM(AW) Ernest Muffley Jr.


Muffley to retire tomorrow

By Staff

AFCM(AW) Ernest Muffley Jr. will celebrate
the end of his 30-year naval career like his
father at NAS Jacksonville tomorrow. His
father, retired ADCS Ernest Muffley Sr. completed
30 years naval service in 1986.
It's only fitting that his son ends his career following
in his father's footsteps - both as jet engine mechanics
completing a combined total of more than 60 years of
naval aviation.
AFCM Muffley enlisted under the Delayed Entry
Program and reported for boot camp at Recruit
Training Command, Orlando Fla. on Jan. 10, 1980.
He attended Aviation Machnist's Mate 'A school in
Millington, Tenn.
His first tour was with the VS-30 "Diamondcutters"
at NAS Cecil Field, Fla. where he qualified as a col-
lateral duty inspector and low/high power turn-up
operator. His first deployment in 1982 was to the
Mediterranean on board USS Forrestal (CV 59) where
he was promoted to second class petty officer.
In 1984, Muffley reported back to Millington, Tenn.
for the Instructor Basic Course. He was then assigned
to the VS-27 "Sea Wolves" at NAS Cecil Field as an
S-3 plane captain instructor.
In 1987, he left the S-3 community and reported
to VP-5 "Mad Foxes" at NAS Jacksonville. As power
plants work center mid-shift supervisor, he became
the leading petty officer and qualified as a collateral
duty quality assurance representative on the P-3 air-
craft.
In 1990, the Mad Foxes were directed to the Persian
Gulf in support of Operation Desert Storm and Desert
Shield. During his tenure with the squadron, he com-
pleted detachments including NAS Roosevelt Roads,
Puerto Rico and participated in UNITAS in South
America and participated in detachments to Santiago
and Conception, Chile and Lima, Peru.
During his tour he was promoted to first class
petty officer, earned his Enlisted Aviation Warfare
Specialist wings, received his first Navy and Marine
Corps Achievement Medal and was selected as VP-5
Sailor of the Year for 1990.
In 1992, Muffley transferred to NAMTRAGRUDET
Jacksonville. He was assigned to MTU 1005 as an
SH-60 power plant and non-designated airman
instructor. He was tested, selected and initiated to
the rank of chief petty officer by his father and uncle
(retired AMCS Frank Renaud).
With the desire to get back to the tailhook Navy and
get some salt on those anchors, Muffley checked in
with VS-31 "Topcats" at NAS Cecil Field in 1996. The
squadron was already deployed, so Muffley met
the squadron in Jabal Ali, United Arab Emirates
onboard USS George Washington (CVN 73). During
his tour, Muffley was the Power Plants Branch and
Maintenance Control chief petty officer.
He also deployed on board USS John C. Stennis
(CVN 74) on its maiden voyage as the squadron's line
division leading chief petty officer. He also earned his
first Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal.
At this point in his career, Muffley thought he'd
start and finish his whole Navy career in Jacksonville.
But in 1999, he received orders to Naval Air Systems
Command (NASC), NAS Patuxent River, Md. to
become a NAMP change coordinator. In 2000, he was
promoted to senior chief petty officer, a most memora-
ble part of his career because his father had given him
a set of his senior chief anchors and told him "these
are working anchors, son."
His next set of orders sent him back to VS-31 in
2003 where he was assigned as the leading senior
chief petty officer of maintenance control. During
this tour he made deployments on board USS George
Washington. In 2006, Muffley was advanced to master
chief petty officer.
His final tour in the Navy has took Muffley back to
NASC, NAS Patuxent River, Md. as the S-3 deputy
assistant program manager for logistics in PMA-290.
In May 2008, Muffley earned a Bachelor of Science
Degree in Professional Aeronautics with a Minor in
Management. He is also a graduate of the Senior
Enlisted Academy at Newport, R.I. Class 105 Gold
Group. He is assigned to PMA 299 as the fleet liaison
officer.
His future plans are to work with the government as
a civil service employee or with a company in the avia-
tion industry.
Muffley and his wife, Catherine, have two daugh-
ters, Kristen (20) and Jessica (15) and a son, Nicholas
(17).

'Screaming Ea

By Clark Pierce
Editor
M ore than 80 Army helicopters assigned to
the famous "Screaming Eagles" of the 101st
Airborne Division (Air Assault) were off-loaded
from a transport ship at Blount Island and flown to
NAS Jacksonville in late December for processing prior
to redeploying to their home base at Fort Campbell,
Kentucky.
"Soldiers of the 101st Airborne recently returned to Fort
Campbell from their 12-month deployment as Combined
Joint Task Force 101 in Afghanistan. They were responsi-
ble for 14 provinces, including much of the volatile border
region between Afghanistan and Pakistan," said retired
Army CW5 Terry Ennis, now a DoD civilian and OIC for
redeployment of the division's helicopters that arrived by
ship at the Port of Jacksonville's Blount Island.
Ennis led the contingent of DoD civilians and contrac-
tors from Fort Campbell so that the division's aircrews
could maximize their holiday family time.
"Depending on the type of aircraft, the rotor blades are
either folded or removed when being transported by ship.
After disembarking the four types of helicopters utilized
by the Screaming Eagles to the staging area at Blount
Island, our team readies the birds for the 26-mile flight
up the St. Johns River to NAS Jacksonville," explained
Ennis.
Upon landing at NAS Jacksonville, pilots write up any
discrepancies that need adjustment, repair or replace-
ment. When servicing is complete, the aircraft are fueled
and flight plans are set for Fort Campbell, located about
50 miles north of Nashville, Tenn.
Pilots from Fort Campbell are periodically flown to NAS
Jacksonville to ferry the helicopters back to Kentucky.
Ennis said that the 101st Airborne Division has a total
complement of 120 aircraft, including:
* CH-47F Chinook - an advanced multi-mission heli-
copter with an integrated, digital cockpit management
system and advanced cargo-handling capabilities up to
24,000 lbs.
* UH-60L and UH-60M Black Hawk - much like the
Navy's new MH-60S Seahawk, the Army's new UH-60M
Black Hawk provides advanced digital avionics, additional
payload and range, better handling qualities and situ-
ational awareness, and improved survivability.
*AH-64 Apache - the world's most capable multi-role
combat helicopter, equipped with laser-guided Hellfire
missiles, 70mm rockets and a 30mm automatic cannon.
* OH-58D Kiowa - this deadly reconnaissance helicopter
can be armed with two Hellfire missiles, seven Hydra 70
rockets, two air-to-air Stinger missiles or one .50-caliber
forward machine gun.
Fort Campbell supports the third-largest military popu-
lation in the Army and the seventh-largest in the U.S.
Department of Defense.

NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. presents ADAR Quinton Beasley the $500
reward for capturing the Grinch Dec. 17 at Liberty Cove. More than 200 single Sailors par-
ticipated in the annual "Capture the Grinch" scavenger hunt, Dec. 1-12 presented by NAS
Jacksonville's Morale, Welfare and Recreation Liberty Department and Metro PCS. Clues were
sent through the Liberty's text messaging program and were also found at the Liberty Center.
Sailors had to figure out the clue which led them to a letter hidden in an MWR facility. They
then unscrambled the letters to find where the Grinch was hiding. Unscrambling the letters
turned out to be the most challenging part of the hunt. ROBBED 3 TIMES were the words
they had to unscramble. To sign-up for Liberty text messages, text Jaxliberty to 30364 or call

BABY: Boy becomes first birth on base

Bell said, "Rather than a gift card, we
decided to set a basket on our front porch
and put out the word by e-mail to members
to drop off what they could."
Additionally, the NAS Jax Navy


Exchange provided a basket of goodies for
the baby as well as an NEX Gift Card.
And, as always, the first baby of the year
got his first "Seabag" from the Navy and

items the baby will need, including a beau-

ASK DR. JOE

Sailors


Immunizations are good medicine, Part One receive
Receive


iy Capt. uoscpn
McQuade, M.D.
NH Jax Public Health Director

Adults need periodic
immunizations not
unlike the immuni-
zations we give to our chil-
dren.
In fact, in recent years
there have been increasing
number of vaccines which
have been shown to be very
effective at prevention of
disease in adults. There is
even research in progress
looking at making a shot
an adult could get to help
him quit smoking. Young
women should inquire
about vaccinations they
may need before they con-
sider getting pregnant!
Some adults incorrectly
assume that the vaccines
they received as chil-
dren will protect them
for the rest of their lives.
Generally this is true,
except that:
Some adults were never
vaccinated as children.
Scientific discoveries are
always being made, bring-
ing vaccines into our lives
that were not around dur-
ing our childhood.
The immunity pro-
vided by some of the vac-
cines received in childhood
begins to fade over time.
Adults become more sus-
ceptible to serious disease
caused by common infec-
tions as they age (for exam-
ple, influenza and pneumo-
coccal pneumonia).
Let's look at what kind of
shots children and adults
need and why.
Q: Should teenagers
and adults get the vari-
cella (chickenpox) vac-
cine?
Any teenager or adult
who has not had chick-
enpox or the chickenpox
vaccine as a child should
receive the vaccine. Adults
are 10 times more likely
than children to be hospi-
talized with the severe con-
sequences of chickenpox.
These consequences include
pneumonia and encepha-
litis (inflammation of the
brain).
Q: What is the Tdap?
The new Tdap vaccine
is different from the DTaP
vaccine currently given to
babies and young children.
Tdap contains lesser quan-
tities of diphtheria and
pertussis proteins. For this
reason, Tdap is much less
likely than DTaP to cause
side effects such as pain,
redness and tenderness in
adolescents. In addition to
preventing tetanus from a
rusty nail, the vaccine pro-
tects patients from devel-
oping whooping cough and
diphteria.
The dangers associated
with diphtheria makes
it difficult for children to
breathe and swallow, but
it also attacks the heart,
kidneys and nerves. In the
1920s, diphtheria was a
common cause of death in
children and adolescents.
At its peak, about
150,000 cases of diphthe-
ria occurred in the United
States every year! The
diphtheria vaccine, first


Capt. Joseph McQuade, M.D.

used in the United States
in the early 1940s, has vir-
tually eliminated the dis-
ease. Now we see fewer
than two cases a year.
Countries in Eastern
Europe, especially Russia,
suffered severe outbreaks
of diphtheria in the mid-
1990s. The outbreaks have
coincided with a noticeable
drop in immunization rates.
Many people may think
of whooping cough (pertus-
sis) as a disease of the past
- something eradicated
generations ago. However,
the number of cases
reported by the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) indicate
that whooping cough is still
very much a public health
concern; health experts
estimate that up to 600,000
cases occur each year in
adults alone.
A recent national survey
revealed that more than
three-quarters of adults
(76 percent) didn't know or
didn't think that whooping
cough remains widespread
in the United States. Many
adults (61 percent) are not
even aware that there is a
vaccine for whooping cough.
A highly contagious respi-
ratory disease, whooping
cough can include a persis-
tent, hacking cough severe
enough to cause vomiting
and even break ribs. The
illness may last for up to
three months or more, and
may lead to pneumonia,
hospitalization and missed
work or school days.
Protection against whoop-
ing cough wears off approx-
imately five to 10 years
after completion of child-
hood vaccination, leaving
adolescents and adults sus-
ceptible to whooping cough.
Most of the deaths from
pertussis occur in infants.
Because the pertussis vac-
cine does not cause death,
the benefits of the pertussis
vaccine clearly outweigh its
risks.
The Tdap vaccine is cur-
rently recommended for all
adolescents 11 and 12 years
of age, healthcare work-
ers, and 19 to 64-year-olds
in place of their next Td
booster vaccine. It is recom-
mended to give all newly
delivered mothers this shot
to protect their new babies
from infection in the first
year of their life.
Q: Should teenagers
and adults get the MMR
(measles, mumps and
rubella) vaccine?
The MMR vaccine should
be given to any teenager or

Navy Medicine Support Command's (NMSC) Assistant Chief
of Staff Capt. Darn Rogers received his novel H1N1 influenza
vaccination, via nasal spray mist from HM2(FMF) Jonathan
Laster at NMSC headquarters at NAS Jacksonville Dec. 14.
The novel H1N1 vaccination is administered like seasonal
influenza vaccination, via nasal spray mist or through an
injection.


adult who has not received
two doses of the vaccine or
has not had natural mea-
sles virus infection.
Measles has almost been
eliminated from the United
States. In 2005, only 66
cases of measles were
reported to the CDC.
However, an outbreak
occurred in 2007 follow-
ing an international youth
sporting event. Measles
still rages throughout
developing countries and is
one of the leading causes of
death worldwide. Because
the measles vaccine has
no serious permanent side
effects, its benefits clearly
outweigh its risks.
Girls are immunized with
rubella vaccine to protect
their future children.
Rubella vaccine is a
unique example of vacci-
nating one person to pro-
tect another. We vaccinate
girls so that, if they become
pregnant as adults, their
unborn children will be pro-
tected against the devastat-
ing effects of rubella virus.
We vaccinate boys to help
stop the spread of rubella
in the community.
Some children may expe-
rience soreness in the local
area of the shot, and a low-
grade fever. Children may
also develop a mild rash
that is not contagious to
other children.
The rubella vaccine can
also cause arthritis (swell-
ing and pain in the joints)
in some women (usually
those over 14 years of age).
But the arthritis is short-
lived and doesn't cause per-
manent harm. The rubella
vaccine is also an extremely
rare cause of short-lived
arthritis in young children.
In 2005, 11 cases of rubel-
la and three cases of birth
defects caused by rubella
infection during pregnancy
were reported to the CDC.
Rubella has been virtu-
ally eliminated from the
United States; however,
it is still quite common in
many other regions (for
example, South America).
Because the rubella vac-
cine does not have serious,
permanent, side effects, the
benefits of the rubella vac-
cine still outweigh its risks.


H1N1 shots

By MCI(SW)
Arthur De La Cruz
Navy Medicine Support Command
Public Affairs

sailors at Navy
Medicine Support
Command's (NMSC)
Headquarters at NAS
Jacksonville were among
the first in the area to
receive their H1N1 influ-
enza vaccinations Dec. 14
and 15.
NMSC and other tenant-
command service members
at NAS Jax began receiving
their vaccinations a week
after the first novel H1N1
vaccine shipment arrived.
The vaccine is being
distributed as outlined
by the Navy Bureau of
Medicine and Surgery's
(BUMED) current novel
H1N1 vaccination policy,
and administered by Naval
Hospital Jacksonville's
Preventive Medicine
Department throughout the
Jacksonville Navy commu-
nity.
"Our first shipment of
vaccine came from Florida's
Department of Health, so
TRICARE beneficiaries
took precedence as recipi-
ents after the medical per-
sonnel who would admin-
ister it," said HMC(FMF)
Fred Turner, who is
attached to Preventive
Medicine Department.
"But, this shipment was
in such abundance that
clearance was authorized
to begin administering it to
our local military compo-
nents too."
Guidance governing how
the vaccine is distributed
mandates that state-pro-
vided supplies are intended
for state residents such as
retirees and family mem-
bers (TRICARE beneficia-
ries) who are eligible for
treatment at the military
medical treatment facility
that receives the shipment,
said Turner.
Department of Defense
(DoD) facilities will receive
vaccine supplies from the
DoD and national stock-
piles for service members
and civilian government


and who will be deploying
to Iraq, Afghanistan or the
Horn of Africa. Now we've
shifted our focus to active
duty tenant-commands and
reservists, though we can
only vaccinate reservists
when they come in during
their drill weekends."
In accordance with
BUMED's policy, the novel
H1N1 vaccine is admin-
istered like the seasonal
influenza vaccine - by injec-
tion or by a nasal spray
mist.
The mist contains an
immunized living strain of
the virus, and the injection
contains a dead strain of
the virus.
All military personnel
will receive the nasal spray
mist unless they meet cer-
tain prohibiting criteria, in
which case they will receive
the injection.

cine go to: http://www.vac-

VITA Tax center opens Jan. 14


From staff


Volunteers at NAS Jacksonville will
provide free tax preparation servic-
es through the Voluntary Income
Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
VITA is the only free tax preparation
service on base. If it does not say "VITA"
it is not free. Private tax preparers charge
$50 to $150 or more per return and often
pressure Sailors to pay high additional
rates to get their refunds more quickly.
VITA is run entirely by volunteers who
are certified by the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS). The tax center will offer
E-file returns, ensuring fast refunds.
Who is eligible for free tax prepara-
tion through VITA?
All active-duty service members and
their dependents
All retirees and their dependents
Reservists on active duty for more than
30 days
Reservists within 30 days of demobiliza-
tion
Reservists involved in pre-mobilization
What to bring to the tax center:
All 2009 W-2's and 1099's

year's tax return or proof of social security
number.

cards
Any other tax records that might be rel-
evant, including copies of 2008 tax returns
if available.
Must bring the amount of the stimulus
payment received
Deploying spouses:
Couples wishing to file joint returns
should come to the tax center together. If
a spouse is unavailable, the spouse prepar-
ing the return will need to bring an IRS
Power of Attorney (or Form 2848 available
at www.irs.gov).
A general power of attorney from the
base legal office will not suffice.
The tax center is located at Building 13
by the main gate (across the street from
the Base Security and next to USO).
The tax center opens its doors Jan. 14
(the same day that W-2 forms will be avail-
able online for active duty personnel.)

SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE



Autism and the holidays


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor


Did you know that one in 150 chil-
dren is diagnosed with an autism
spectrum disorder (ASD)? ASD
affects behaviors such as the ability to
communicate ideas and feelings, imagi-
nation (such as creative play), social
interaction (not looking at your eyes, not
responding to their name), and the inabil-
ity to establish relationships with others.
Perhaps your child is demonstrating
the symptoms or has been diagnosed with
ASD. You are not alone. Stephanie, Suomi
and Adria are military spouses who are
members of my Homefront in Focus team.
They are also proud parents of children
with ASD. I have seen their pride, their
love, their concern and their efforts to pro-
vide for the special needs of these precious
children. The holiday season, while a joy-
ful, exciting time for most children and
adults, presents unique challenges for chil-
dren with ASD. The changes in routine,
the decorations, lights and sounds of the
holiday season can be very challenging for
autism children.
Recently on Navy Homefront Talk!
(www.blogtalkradio.com/nht), I was joined
by two leading experts in ASD, Dr. Ronit
Molko and Dr. Sabrina Daneshvar. They
provided information and strategies to
help ASD children negotiate during vari-
ous holidays:
* Remember that your child needs struc-
ture and routine. Work to maintain a
routine as close to the normal as possible
through the holiday season.
* Most ASD children are visual learners.
Make a calendar of events such as the day
the lights are going up on the house, the
day the Christmas tree will be put up, etc.
* Make gradual changes. Many of us
decorate the entire house in a day or a


weekend. Consider decorating in gradual
steps to help your child adjust to the many
changes. Use the visual calendar to help
them know what change is coming.
* Develop a 'story book' about your fam-
ily and the changes that are coming. Read
the story book frequently with your child
to help them know what to expect.
* Most ASD children are very tactile.
Keep at hand those items that bring com-
fort to your child. These can include a ball,
a particular doll, blanket or other items.
Please take time to listen to the podcast
for more tips and resources to help your
family enjoy the holiday season.
The subject of ASD requires more than
this one column. TRICARE offers autism
services through the Extended Care
Health Option (ECHO). For more infor-
mation go to www.tricare.mil, then click
through Special Programs to the Extended
Care Health Option and finally to Autism
Services Demonstration.
Another resource is www.autismthera-
pies.org where you will find strategies for
you, your family and your child.
Suomi, Steph and Adria agree that con-
necting with other families to exchange
experiences and ideas is a lifeline for them.
There are many online forums where you
can connect with other ASD families.
Beginning Jan.15, the Enlisted Spouse
Community (www.enlistedspousecom-
munity.net) will launch a sub-forum for
ASD families where you can connect with
Suomi, Steph, Adria and others. I hope
these tips will help you and your ASD child
enjoy a very happy holiday season.

Homefront Talk! now broadcasts twice
each week. Check out her internet talk

What is Mud Run?
Mud Run is a 10K (approximately 6 miles) race with boot camp style obstacles that
are surrounded by or consist entirely of mud. People cheer as teams of contestants
slip, slide, and slosh their way to victory. It is a unique experience whether running or
watching!

Why a Mud Run?
Mud Run is the fastest growing adventure race in the country. The National MS
Society and Mud Run have partnered together to create a unique fundraising event for
MS here inJacksonville. As some adventure races have a limited audience due to the
extreme fitness level involved, Mud Run provides an opportunity for people of all skill
levels to join in the muddy fun!

Who is Mud Run?
Mud Run is teams of 5 in Co-Ed, Corporate, Uniformed Services, All-Female and All
Male Divisions. We also have individual runners and teams of 2. See our website for

This is ridiculous! Week

limited response. There
are no gimmicks, no

den factors. We have
everything anybody else
can offer, in other
words, not iust 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 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-
