NAS Jax best in Southeast Region


Will now compete


at CNIC level
By Miriam S. Gallet
Public Affairs Officer


Commander, Navy Region Southeast selected NAS
Jacksonville as the 2009 Installation Excellence
Award nominee for the Commander, Naval
Installation Command's (CNIC) Installation Excellence
Award.
"Each year we have the opportunity to recognize the
excellence of shore installations that step beyond the
day-to-day challenges and excel in providing the best
service to the fleet, fighter and family. The Navy Region
Southeast 2009 Installation Excellence Award panel met
last week. The panel reviewed 12 submissions and rec-
ommended NAS Jacksonville as the 2009 Navy Region
Southeast nomination to CNIC," explained Rear Adm.
Tim Alexander, commander, Navy Region Southeast.
"Congratulations to Capt. Scorby and his team for their
superb efforts at enabling warfighter readiness through
effective and efficient delivery of base operating support
and installation management," he added.
NAS Jacksonville sustained excellence in a wide range
of operational and warfighter readiness support func-
tions, better mission performance and superb quality of
life for military men and women and their families, and
community outreach program set it apart from 21 other
Southeast installations. The nomination exemplified the
total commitment to excellence by its military and civilian
personnel and sets the air installation as one of the con-
tenders for the CNIC Award.
"We are very honored to be the 2009 Navy Region
Southeast nominee to CNIC for the Installation
Excellence Award. Our nomination among extraordi-


Remembering


Dr. Martin


Luther King Jr.

(1929 -1968)

By Staff
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was
born Michael Luther King, Jr.,
but later changed his name to
Martin. He attended segregated public
schools in Georgia, graduated from high
school at the age of 15 and received a
Bachelor of Arts degree in 1948 from
Morehouse College. After three years of
theological study at Crozer Theological
Seminary in Pennsylvania where he was
elected president of a predominantly
white senior class, he was awarded a
Bachelor of Divinity in 1951.
King's grandfather began the family's
long tenure as pastors of the Ebenezer
Baptist Church in Atlanta, serving from
1914 to 1931. His father took over there-
after and from 1960 until his death
Martin Luther acted as co-pastor. With
a fellowship won at Crozer, he enrolled
in graduate studies at Boston University,
completing his residence for the doctorate
in 1953 and receiving the degree in 1955.
In Boston, he met and married Coretta
Scott, a young woman of uncommon
intellectual and artistic attainments.
They had two sons and two daughters.
In 1954, King accepted the pastorale of
the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in
Montgomery, Ala. By this time, King
was also a member of the executive com-
mittee of the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored People. In
December 1955, he accepted the leader-
ship of the first Negro nonviolent dem-
onstration of contemporary times in the
United States, the bus boycott described
by Gunnar Jahn in his presentation
speech in honor of the laureate. The boy-
cott lasted 382 days. On Dec. 21, 1956,
after the Supreme Court of the United
States had declared the laws requir-

nary competition throughout the Southeast Region is a
reflection of the commitment and outstanding perfor-
mance of the military and civilian workforce aboard NAS
Jacksonville. Our Sailors and squadron's were globally
deployed and NAS Jax was actively engaged at every level
of naval aviation warfighting readiness," remarked NAS
Jacksonville Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.,
upon learning of the selection.
"I couldn't be prouder of the NAS Jax Team. Their agil-
ity and flexibility ensured that NAS Jax accomplished its
mission with one of the best safety records in the Navy.
I applaud their continuous efforts and their outstanding
support of Chief of Naval Operation's Global Maritime
Strategy." added Scorby.
During 2009, the stellar performance of the men and
women aboard the air station contributed to the new
world in aviation readiness while advancing the Navy's

ing segregation on buses unconstitu-
tional, blacks and whites rode the buses
as equals. During these days of boy-
cott, King was arrested, his home was
bombed, he was subjected to personal
abuse, but at the same time he emerged
as a Negro leader of the first rank.
In 1957, he was elected president of
the Southern Christian Leadership
Conference, an organization formed to
provide new leadership for the now bur-
geoning civil rights movement. The ide-
als for this organization he took from
Christianity; its operational techniques
from Gandhi. In the 11-year period
between 1957 and 1968, King traveled
more than six million miles and spoke
more than 2,500 times, appearing wher-
ever there was injustice, protest and
action.
Meanwhile he wrote five books as well
as numerous articles, and led a massive
protest in Birmingham, Ala. The protest
caught the attention of the entire world,

Cooperative Maritime Strategy. In FY09, the NAS Jax
team played an important role and impressively com-
pleted nearly half-a-billion dollars of construction without
a single accident and gave the U.S. Navy its first two
"Green" LEED-certified hangar and the largest P-3 han-
gar in the world.
Among the major accomplishments achieved by the air
station during the fiscal year was the relocation of four
P-3 squadrons and a logistics squadron with more than
3,000 Sailors and families relocating from Brunswick,
Maine, the establishment of the first Helicopter Maritime
Strike Squadron on the east coast - HSM-70 - and the
expansion of Naval Hospital Jacksonville among others.
Furthermore, the installation also earned the prestigious

A C1(AW/SW) Lisa
Trammell of the
AS Jacksonville
Air Operations Depart-
ment has been selected as
the NAS Jax 2009 Sailor of
the Year and will represent
the base in the Commander,
Navy Region Southeast
Sailor of the Year competi-
tion this month.
On being selected,
Trammell says she is hum-
bled. "I've always been a
worker bee. I love my job
and enjoy working with
the troops. I've been told I
need to start taking care of
myself and lead by exam-
ple. That was a challenge
for me because I'm so used
to taking care of others,"
she said. "I'm excited about
this but it's very humbling.
For someone to recognize
the hard work that you do
is quite an honor and very
rewarding."
Trammel, a native of
Wedowee, Ala. joined the
Navy because she wanted
upward mobility. "I was
going to school at night and
working during the day
and just wasn't progress-
ing as fast as I wanted to
career wise. So, I came in
the Navy at age 26 and was
intent on getting my degree
which I'm still working on,"
she continued. "I came from
a small town in Alabama
and realized there is a
whole big world out there
and that there was more out
there for me."

KC-135 flight, Part 2


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


I recently overcame my biggest
fear by flying in an airplane for
the first time in 12 years. I was
invited by the 101st Refueling Wing
of the Maine Air National Guard,
which likes to periodically take
members of the media on board the
KC-135 tanker to help the public bet-
ter understand their mission.
Shortly before boarding the plane,
Dustin threw up in the bathroom. It
was our first indication that he had
caught the same stomach flu our kids
suffered the weekend before, the one
I had secretly hoped to catch, because
there's no better excuse for not flying
than vomiting.
I left Dustin pale and clammy at
the operations building and board-
ed the KC-135 with Lt. Col. Deborah
Kelley, a petite blonde with a sassy
bob hairdo and friendly eyes. I've
been around plenty of people in uni-
form, but I've never seen anyone
make camouflage and boots look so
chic.
Also on the flight was ICC Eden
Olguin, the Navy Operational
Support Center Bangor command
chief, who works with Dustin. He's
a tough guy who eats crickets for
snacks. He pulls the stingers off
bees to suck their poison. If we had
to parachute out of the airplane, my
plan was to jump on his back. Then
I found out the KC-135 doesn't have
parachutes.
Kelley was surprised that the idea
of parachutes had been a comfort to


MARCH 20th, 2010

me, considering my fear of flying. I
looked at the grey tanker, which rose
up from the snow alongside the run-
way like an elephant, and decided she
was right. Parachuting would not be
my best option.
Unlike commercial airliners, the
KC-135 looks like an unfinished
basement. Our seats were red net-
ting hung from the sides. The floors
and walls were bare of any conceal-
ing plastic. The overhead wiring is
exposed. You'd think that a large
military jet with such transparen-
cy would scare someone like me. Yet
the opposite was true. I have never
seen wires so carefully bundled and
labeled. Every inch of the airplane
was immaculate. In this way, the
inner workings were visible to the
point of being reassuring.
Plus, I was sitting alongside many
of the people who have worked on the
aircraft for decades.
I sat directly behind the pilot and
co-pilot. As the KC-135 barreled
down the runway, I was surprisingly
unafraid. I saw the cool confidence of
the pilots' hands and put my faith in
their ability. When the nose lifted and
we began to climb, I felt incredibly
relaxed. The gravity and acceleration
pushing my lap into the seat on take-
off reminded me of the same relaxing
heaviness of lying in the hot sun.
Later, I had the opportunity to lie
on my belly in the boom pod at the
back of the airplane and watch a


MJACKSONVILLE
JACKSONVILLE


KC-10 approach, like a kitten com-
ing to his mother's belly, for midair
refueling. By the time the two air-
planes made contact via the boom,
they were so close that when I waved
to the other pilots, they saw me and
waved back.
By the end of the three-hour flight,
I was steady enough to sit and fin-
ish the daily crossword puzzle. I even
yawned a few times. Kelley cheerily
offered me goldfish crackers from her
bag. I felt like a seasoned traveler.
Indeed, the only mishap of the
morning came when I had finished
using the bathroom. Unbeknownst to
me, until I was already seated again,
I had dragged a strip of toilet paper
down the aisle of the plane. It wasn't
stuck to my shoe. Worse, it was lying
conspicuously on the floor. Do I get up
and claim the toilet paper by putting
it in the trash? I wondered. Do I leave
it there and risk looking like a bad
guest?
Just then, over the roar of the jet's
engines, Kelley whispered, as best
she could through the protective
plugs in my ears, "Don't worry; I've
got it." She stood, and in one deft,
discrete motion, rid the floor of my
errant toilet paper, proving once
again that the military takes care of
its own like family.
Would the people on a commercial
flight do the same for me? I honestly
don't know. But I'm not yet ready to
find out.

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 in Jacksonville. 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

HEY, MONEYCHIC!

Hey, MoneyChic!
I've heard there is a new scam out
there that involves tricking your Caller
ID. What do you know about this?
MoneyChic says: There is a new
scam cropping up called "spoofing."
Anyone can now choose the phone
number that will be displayed on your
caller ID. Software that enables this to
be done is legal. (This was originally
intended for services like secret shop-
ping or battered women's shelters.)
The crook can plug in what they want
to display - such as a bank name and
number. When you answer your phone,
the crook identifies himself as someone
from your bank and warns of a problem
with your account.
He then asks you to verify your
account with information such as your
account number, social security number
and PIN number.
Once he obtains this information
from you, he has everything he needs to
access your accounts.
What can you do to avoid this scam? If
you have a suspicious call, don't give the
caller any info.
Tell them that you would feel more
comfortable calling the bank back your-
self with the number you have listed in
your bank information.
If you call your bank and they have
no notation of issues with your account,
then you know you are most likely being
"spoofed."

MCPON to Sailors: 'Be


New guidance


smart about online threats' on SRB program


By MCCS(SW/AW)
Bill Houlihan
Office of Master Chief
Petty Officer of the Navy


Sailors, family mem-
bers and Navy com-
mands are increas-
ingly relying on social and
emerging media to stay con-
nected with those in their
personal and professional
lives.
Master Chief Petty
Officer of the Navy
(MCPON) (SS/SW) Rick
West is chief among them
- with more than 13,000
people from around the
world who have signed up to
follow him on his Facebook
page.
The vast majority are
Sailors, Navy family mem-
bers and military support-
ers. It is important that the
Navy family remain vigi-
lant in not sharing poten-
tially sensitive or secure
information by any non-
secure means - to include
letters, email, telephone
conversations or social
media.
West has seen reports
of potential threats to the
Navy and said that while
the country remains at war,
clearly there are those who
would want to glean infor-


Master Chief Petty Officer of
the Navy (MCPON)
(SS/SW) Rick West
mation from anywhere they
can get it to use against the
Navy and the nation.
"What we say and where
we say it has never been
more important," said
West. "Operational Security
(OPSEC) has to be stressed
at every level and I'm going
to make sure our Sailors
understand that very clear-
ly."
West said that he's pleas-
antly surprised at how
effective social media have
become in terms of getting
quality information to the
fleet.
He's been particular-
ly aggressive in using
Facebook and Twitter to
make Sailors and families


aware of Navy and DoD ini-
tiatives such as wounded
warrior care, the Post 9/11
GI Bill and sexual assault
prevention.
There are threats,
though, that he believes are
real and potentially very
dangerous.
"Anyone who thinks our
enemies don't monitor what
our Sailors, families and
commands are doing via the
Internet and social media
had better open their eyes,"
said West.
"These sites are great
for networking, getting the
word out and talking about
some of our most important
family readiness issues, but
our Sailors and their loved
ones have to be careful with
what they say and what
they reveal about them-
selves, their families or their
commands."
West said the Navy com-
munity needs to avoid dis-
cussing information about
their units, such as loca-
tion, schedules and specific
missions or assets.
"That's standard
OPSEC," said West. "But
we're not talking about
'loose lips sinking ships'
anymore, it's more than
that. Our enemies are


advanced and as technologi-
cally savvy as they've ever
been. They're looking for
personal information about
our Sailors, our families
and our day-to-day activi-
ties, as well as ways to turn
that information into mari-
time threats."
Sailors are getting it, said
West. He said he bases that
opinion on the feedback he
receives at all hands calls
and via social media.
"If you have to won-
der whether what you're
about to type could be used
against you or your ship-
mates or your family, you
probably shouldn't say it,"
West said.
Information on the appro-
priate use of social media
within the Navy is available
at http://www.chinfo.navy.
mil/socialmedia.html.
DoD's social media hub
has created videos and arti-
cles on the best practices for
service members and their
families when using social
networking sites.These can
be found at http://socialme-
dia.defense.gov.

ing OPSEC can be obtained

AWARD: NAS Jax wins top regional award


From Page 1

Meritorious Unit Commendation,
its fourth consecutive Chief of Naval
Operations Occupational Health
Ashore Safety Award and its third
Secretary of the Navy Safety Award
for Achievement in Safety Ashore in
the large, non-industrial category.


Furthermore, NAS Jax environmen-
tal stewardship was recognized in
the spring of 2009, when Jacksonville
Mayor John Peyton presented the
Environmental Achievement Award
for Government.
NAS Jacksonville looks forward to
competing at the CNIC level among
the 77 worldwide installations. The


winner of the CNIC Installation
Excellence Award will be nominated
for the Commander in Chiefs Annual
Award for Installation Excellence.
Established in 1984, the award rec-
ognizes the outstanding efforts of per-
sonnel in the operations and mainte-
nance of U.S. military installations
worldwide.


From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

Navy officials provided a status update for
the Selective Reenlistment Bonus (SRB) pro-
gram Jan. 8, notifying Sailors that some SRB
awards may be discontinued as manning levels in
critical skills are met.
As reenlistment goals for particular skills are
achieved, SRB award levels for those skills will be
removed from the plan, but no earlier than 30 days
following the release of a NAVADMIN announcing
award levels, according to NAVADMIN 006/10.
SRBs enhance the Navy's ability to size, shape and
stabilize manning by using a monetary incentive to
encourage Sailors with critical skills and experience to
stay Navy. It is a market-based incentive and award
levels are strategically adjusted as retention needs
dictate.
The message also reminds commands to refamiliar-
ize themselves with the program, which was revised
last year, as announced in NAVADMIN 006/09.
Commands must submit SRB reenlistment requests
for eligible Sailors 35 to 120 days prior to the request-
ed reenlistment date. SRB requests submitted less
than 35 days in advance without substantial justifica-
tion will not be accepted.
Sailors can reenlist for SRB no more than 90 days
prior to their end of active obligated service (EAOS).
Exceptions to this policy, as well as complete SRB
guidance, are listed in OPNAVINST1160.8A.
Commands should refer to NAVADMIN 250/09 for
the most recent list of SRB eligible ratings and award
levels.
More than 1,300 Sailors have already received SRBs
this fiscal year. SRB funding is limited, so SRB eli-
gible Sailors are encouraged to plan ahead.

Four SH-60F and three HH-60H Seahawks assigned to the HS-5 "Nightdippers" await pilots and aircrew on a wet and cool New Year's Eve. In addition to deploying on board USS Dwight D.
Eisenhower, the squadron is also changing its homeport from NAS Jacksonville to NS Norfolk Chambers Field.

ew Year's Eve marked the
final time that Helicopter
Antisubmarine Squadron Five
(HS-5) will deploy from NAS
Jacksonville, its homeport since
1974. Friends and family waved
farewell to the pilots and air-
crew of four SH-60F and three
HH-60H Seahawks as they took
to the air on a cool and rainy
morning.
The "Nightdippers" flew to
Norfolk, Va. where they landed
on the flight deck of USS Dwight
D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), while it
was moored to its pier in prepara-
tion for its January 2 deployment.


Holding back tears, Tanya Nichols and 7-month-old
Madeline wish a safe deployment for husband and
father Lt. Matthew Nichols as he prepares to join his
aircrew on the flightline Dec. 31.

"Not only are the Nightdippers
deploying with Carrier Air Wing
Seven (CVW-7) aboard Ike -
we're also changing our homeport
to NS Norfolk Chambers Field,
which is where we will return


upon completion of this deploy-
ment," said HS-5 Commanding
Officer Cmdr. Mark Leavitt.
In addition to packing for
deployment, the Nightdippers
also loaded truckloads of gear and


material that will be transported
to their new hangar at Chambers
Field.

(CVS-9) recovered the Apollo 7 module commanded by Capt.
Walter Schirra Jr.
The squadron moved to its homeport to NAS Jacksonville
in 1974.
In 1978, CVW-7 and HS-5 and were assigned to USS
Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), at the time, the Navy's
newest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. Following an
extended deployment to the Mediterranean, HS-5 transi-
tioned to the advanced SH-3H.
In 1988, with a single helicopter embarked on the USS
Peterson (DD 969), the community had its first-ever,
six-month detachment of a single SH-3H for ASW. The
venerable Sea King proved its mettle during numerous
multi-national exercises and sensitive Black Sea opera-
tions. Also in 1988, the squadron received its fourth Captain
Arnold Jay Isbell Trophy, sixth CNO Safely Award, and a
Meritorious Unit Commendation.
Following its 1990 turnaround cycle -highlighted by two
successive HS Wing One maintenance trophies - HS-5 once
again deployed to the Mediterranean aboard Eisenhower.
The "Centennial Cruise" deployment, in honor of the 100th
anniversary of the birth of President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
included a mid-deployment journey to the English Channel
for ceremonies honoring the D-Day invasion.
Although the Sea King became older than the person-
nel maintaining it, several service life extensions kept the
SH-3H up to date with the latest technological advances in
ASW electronics and power plant systems. The squadron
kept their classic helicopters aloft for a total of 108,661
hours and in around-the-clock readiness for over three
decades.
Nevertheless, in 1995, the Nightdippers closed another
chapter in their history when the last of their Sea Kings
were removed from service at NAS Jacksonville.
The next chapter involved transitioning to the SH-60
Seahawk during a compressed 13-month turnaround cycle.
The men and women of HS-5 completed the transition
three months ahead of schedule and met every operational
commitment during their pre-deployment work-up sched-
ule. Also at this time, HS-5 added yet another facet to their
repertoire of warfare missions. While detached to NAS
Fallon, Nev., the Nightdippers perfected combat search and
rescue (CSAR) procedures in preparation for deployment.
In 2005, the Nightdippers fulfilled the Navy's Expanded
Maritime Interdiction Operation mission, during the Global
War on Terrorism by deterring, delaying and disrupting the
movement of terrorists and terrorist-related materials at
sea. The Nightdippers collaborated with U.S. Marine Corps
fleet anti-terrorism security teams, as well as forces of vari-
ous allied nations.
HS-5 also provided two aircraft and 37 personnel to par-
ticipate in the massive Hurricane Katrina relief effort. The
Nightdippers logged 93.6 flight hours and rescued 41 people
in distress, as well as delivering 14,860 pounds of food and
water to hurricane victims.
HS-5 provided CVW-7 and USS Eisenhower with more
than 5,000 hours of direct support missions over the course
of the 2006 work-up cycle and 2006-2007 extended deploy-
ment.

homeport change is challenging. "Everyone in our squad-
ron enjoys living in Northeast Florida, so it's difficult
for many to uproot their lives and move away from NAS
Jacksonville."
"But a permanent duty station change like this is part of
our Navy lifestyle. Even though keeping families informed
and motivated is a com-
plex process, we have a
terrific family readiness
group at HS-5. They
understand the problems
that arise from having
to sell homes, change
schools, find new spouse
employment and other
issues. Our homeport
change certificate has no
deadline - but I expect to have our families moved to the
Norfolk area by this summer," said Leavitt.
He also expressed his thanks to NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. and his team
for their remarkable support of the HS community. "They
always provided the infrastructure we needed to succeed
in our mission.
"It's always bittersweet when an era in naval avia-
tion ends, but our helicopter communities will be even
more capable as we move forward with Navy Helicopter
CONOPS," said Leavitt.
Under CONOPS (Concept of Operations), the HH-60H
Seahawk is being replaced by the MH-60S (Sierra). The
SH-60B and SH-60F variants are being replaced by the
MH-60R (Romeo).
Leavitt said that HS-5 is slated for transition to the
next-generation Sierra - but it will not take place until
late 2012, due to aircraft carrier schedules and delivery
sequencing of the next-generation Romeo.
"Before we transition to the Sierra, HS-5 will complete
one more deployment aboard Ike with our legacy SH-60F
and HH-60H Seahawks. When the transition to the Sierra
is complete at NS Norfolk, the Nightdippers will be desig-
nated HSC-5," concluded Leavitt.

ADCS Roger Line and members of VP-62 gather after his "10,000 hours" flight in a P-3.


VP-62 flight engineer


surpasses 10,000 hours

By Lt. Cmdr.
Alex Hernandez
VP 62


On Jan. 7, ADCS
Roger Line of VP-62
surpassed a U.S.
Navy benchmark few naval
aircrewmen ever achieve.
Flying a P-3 Orion from
a squadron based out of
NAS Jacksonville in sup-
port of Operation Enduring
Freedom, he joined the
small cadre of flight engi-
neers who have amassed
over 10,000 mishap-free
flight hours in their log-
books.
Having done so, he will
most likely be the last of
his kind to reach this mile-
stone in a P-3 aircraft.
With the introduction of
the P-8 in 2013, the Navy's
newest maritime patrol
aircraft, the number of P-3
aircraft in the fleet will
steadily decline through
its planned retirement in
2018.
When asked about his
achievement, Line stat-
ed, "It's a team effort. I
can't launch an aircraft by
myself. It takes an entire
team of well-trained main-
tainers and crewmen to do
that, and I've had the privi-
lege of serving with many
over my career."

ADCS Roger Line of VP-62 is saluted by crewmembers after
completing 10,000 mishap-free hours of flying in the P-3
"Orion" aircraft Jan. 7.


Line joined the Navy in
1984. He served four years
as an aviation mechanic
on C-130 aircraft before
reporting to Pensacola to
begin training as a flight
engineer.
Over his 26-year naval
career, he has trained
countless flight engineers
and mechanics, as well
as having flown P-3 air-
craft in support of opera-
tions in Kosovo, Bosnia,
Panama, Keflavik, Puerto
Rico, and throughout the
Middle East. In doing so,
he has been awarded 15
Air Medals for meritorious
achievement.


A squadron mate
describes him, "His big-
gest attribute is that he's
a Sailor's Sailor. A great
mentor, chief and flight
engineer who puts others
before himself."
Line hails from
Brunswick, Maine, where
his wife, Amy teaches
Social Sciences at the
University of Maine.
He is an avid deer and
turkey hunter, enjoys clas-
sic 80's rock, working on his
'69 Ford Bronco, and is a
proud member of American
Legion and Veterans of the
Foreign Wars.

HS-5 comes



through in




dramatic




rescue at sea


By MC3 Christopher Baker
USS Dwight D. Eisenhower Public Affairs
Only hours after depart-
ing for its 2010 deploy-
ment, aircraft carrier USS
Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69)
diverted from flight operations to
assist the U.S. Coast Guard in
a rescue at sea the night of Jan.
2, and save the life of a stranded
mariner.
Responding to a vessel-in-dis-
tress call, the U.S. Coast Guard
requested Eisenhower's aid in the
successful extraction of a man
whose sailboat had capsized in
rough waters approximately 300
miles off the coast of Elizabeth
City, N.C.
Eisenhower immediately
changed course and sailed at
high speed toward the distressed
mariner. The U.S. Coast Guard
and the U.S. 2nd Fleet Maritime


Operations Center coordinated to
identify the Eisenhower and its
air assets as the quickest and saf-
est way to rescue the mariner.
The "Nightdippers" of
Helicopter Anti-Submarine
Squadron (HS) 5, launched a
search and rescue (SAR) team to
extract the mariner from 18- to
21-foot seas and winds peaking
at 45 knots. A Coast Guard C-130
dropped two life rafts for the mar-
iner after the waves destroyed
the sailboat's mast. The mari-
ner abandoned his sinking boat
and struggled for nearly an hour
in the high seas to reach one of
the life rafts. The Coast Guard
airplane offered aerial support
by directing the SAR helicopter
through both snow and rain to the
life raft.
Lt. Cmdr. Scott Pichette, the
helicopter aircraft commander,

Carolina.
said the experience and profes-
sionalism of the crew made it pos-
sible to complete the challenging
mission.
"Most of us have been in for
almost 18 years, and those were
some of the biggest waves any
of us had seen," Pichette said.
"Mother Nature threw bad weath-
er, ice, snow and hail making it a
stretch for us and the helicopter."
SAR crew chief AW1(NAC)
David Brandon said the rescue
swimmer, AW2(NAC) Kyle Need,
completed the extraction in only
six minutes, despite of the intense


conditions.
Need said it was the collective
effort that made the extraction
possible. "We went over every pos-
sible scenario during the transit.
The communication made the
mission go smoothly," he said.
The copilot for the SAR mission,
HS-5 Executive Officer Cmdr.
Byron Ogden, explained that
while the conditions were treach-
erous, the cooperation between the
SAR team and the Coast Guard
made the mission a success.
"This is honestly one of the
most challenging missions we


could do as far as SAR goes,"
said Ogden, "I didn't hear one bit
of panic in anybody's voice. The
whole crew was very calm, cool
and collected."
The rescued mariner was treat-
ed briefly aboard Eisenhower
before being transferred to a
Coast Guard helicopter and flown
to an Elizabeth City medical facil-
ity. According to Brandon, even
after the ordeal, the mariner was
in good spirits and grateful to
have survived. "With those condi-
tions, he was lucky he made it."

to be used as an overflow painting facility for air-

The hangar was formerly the home of the "Tridents"
of Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron (HS) 3, which
changed its homeport to NS Norfolk, Va. in 2009.
The first plane to sport a new coat of paint at the han-
gar is an S-3B Viking destined for the Naval Weapons
Test Squadron (VX) 30 "Bloodhounds" at Naval Air
Weapons Station, Point Mugu, Calif.
The Viking will be used for clearing ships and aircraft
from the 36,000-sq.-mi. Pacific Sea Range, the DoD's larg-
est over-water missile test range. VX-30 also supports
fleet training and tactics development, particularly large
scale, major exercises, including Fleet Battle Experiments
on the Pacific Sea Range.

'Game On!' alerts commissary


patrons to savings blitz


By Kevin Robinson,
DeCA Public Affairs Specialist


As football fans prepare for their
big game viewing events, the
Defense Commissary Agency is
launching a promotion blitz for autho-
rized customers who want to grab all
their snacks and party food at savings
approaching 50-60 percent.
Under a campaign titled "Game On!"
DeCA is reminding its customers that
the commissary should be their first stop
as they prepare to watch the National
Football League's conference champion-
ships on Jan. 24, the Pro Bowl on Jan.
31 and Super Bowl XLIV on Feb. 7.
"We are kicking off 2010 with the best
selection of snacks and beverages at pro-
motional prices that go beyond our nor-
mal savings of 30 percent or more," said
DeCA Director and CEO Philip Sakowitz
Jr. "The football action on television is
expected to be hot, but that's nothing
compared to the sizzling savings our
commissaries have for our customers."
Through Feb. 10, commissaries will
showcase posters, banners and displays
pointing customers toward extra savings
on items such as snacks, chips, beverag-
es, chicken wings, chicken breasts, chili,
turkey bacon, shrimp, ham and turkey
sub kits, franks, cooked ham, pizza,
pizza rolls, and paper towels, said agen-
cy promotions manager Charlie Dowlen.
"Customers can already save an aver-
age of 30 percent or more when shopping


in commissaries vs. commercial grocery
stores," Dowlen said.
"But during promotional periods, sav-
ings can approach 50-60 percent for cer-
tain discounted items. There's no doubt
about it; shopping for your Big Game
items in the commissary will net you
substantial savings."
Dowlen said the commissary agency's
product buyers have done their home-
work to find products that military cus-
tomers want for the big games. Topping
the list are items that require little or no
preparation along with a wider variety of
healthier snacks for customers who are
showing an increased interest in watch-
ing their weight as well as the action on
the gridiron.
Traditionally, the days leading up to
the Super Bowl have been prime time
for commissary customers stocking up
for their viewing parties. Now, with the
NFL Pro Bowl moved to the week before
football's biggest game, DeCA is ensur-
ing that its stores' shelves are ready for
even more patrons to get their "Game
On!" fare.
"It's a big time of year for our custom-
ers to stock up for the big games, be it
the playoffs, the Pro Bowl and the Super
Bowl," Sakowitz said.
"In fact, the Saturday before last
year's Super Bowl was our best single
shopping day ever. Our stores know how
to prepare for our customers' big game
food needs."

a big responsibility. I love watching a new
airman or seaman checking into the com-
mand with the 'deer in the headlights look'
and see them a year later much more con-
fident and a more seasoned Sailor helping
other new Sailors. It's so rewarding," said
Trammell.
As a facility watch supervisor, Trammell
is designated by the commanding officer
and responsible to the commanding officer
for operational performance of the watch
crew on duty.
"When signed on position, I am in charge
of everything that happens from any type
of aircraft movements, take offs and land-
ings, all the equipment and runways, etc.,"
she stated.
She also volunteers her time as the com-
mand financial specialist and morale,
welfare and recreation coordinator for her
department.
In her free time, Trammell is working on
an air traffic controller's associate's degree
from Thomas Edison State College and
assists the First Coast YMCA as a volun-
teer, the Oakleaf Soccer Association as a
team mom and helps out her daughter's


Girl Scout troop.
She also spends as much time as possible
with her two daughters, 11-year-old Dana
and 2-year-old Sarah. "My husband just
retired from the Navy and currently works
as a contractor for Northrup Grumman.
He travels quite a bit so I consider myself a
single mom," said Trammell.
Her biggest goal is passing the chief's
test in January, which means a lot of
studying. "I plan to make chief and will
stay in the Navy as long as I can. I really
like my job and I love the Navy. I'm also
up for orders this year, so we'll see where
they'll send me next," said the 15-year vet-
eran.
What advice does she have for her junior
peers? "Set your goals high and work
hard because hard work pays off. I think
achievements are unlimited in the mili-
tary," Trammell said.
Trammell stresses that she couldn't be
successful in her career without the sup-
port of her command and peers. "I would
like to thank my command for their sup-
port and recognition and especially my
junior Sailors because helping them
achieve their goals is by far the most
rewarding part of my job," she concluded.

2009 in the rear view mirror


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor
Happy New Year!
We've just ushered in a new year,
2010. Are you looking forward to
the new year? I joked with my husband
that I could not wait to 'see 2009 in our
rear view mirror.' Our year was full of
unexpected changes, challenges and oppor-
tunities. I was the first military spouse to
embed on a deployment, I spent a wonder-
ful week reunited with a lost girlfriend in
my favorite city, Washington, DC. We saw
Scott's precious, Navy WAVE grandmother
featured on the Bonnie Hunt Show. We
got a new puppy. Scott battled and beat
cancer and a MRSA infection. As I write
this column I am surrounded by boxes,
that is, packing boxes. We moved over the
Christmas weekend.
Celebrating the new year is a good thing.
It is beneficial to have a landmark where
we put the past behind us while turning
our sights to a new chapter in our lives.
The New Year provides this landmark.


A SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE

it are endless possibilities of opportunities to express

There is another reason to be grate-

country can no longer claim...job security.
I have friends and family who has lost
jobs and their unemployment benefits ran
out. While 'deployment' is no fun, secure

FRCSE staff helps Florida


Striders earn world relay record
By FRCSE Public Affairs r --


Three Fleet Readiness
Center Southeast
(FRCSE) person-
nel were among the 100
Florida Striders track
runners who recently
broke the Guinness World
RecordTM in the 100 by 10K
relay.
FRCSE Electronic
Measures Equipment
Manager Keith Poythress
along with Aerospace
Engineers Mark Grubb
and John Funk of NAVAIR
In-Service Support Center
Jacksonville helped the
team earn the world record.
Each runner completed
a 10K (6.2 miles) with an
overall time of 77 hours, 17
minutes, 25 seconds. The
runners, ranging in age
from 10 to 68 years, covered
620 miles beating the previ-
ous record by 12 hours.
The four-day event was
held Dec. 3-6 at Bishop

Get involved in your



child's education
From LIFELines


t doesn't matter whether your children
go to a public school, a private school,
or are home schooled - you can help
them to get the most of their education by
getting involved, at home and at school.
One of the 1ii-- concerns in edu-
cation today is the role of paren-
tal involvement in education. Parental
involvement can range from helping
with homework to home schooling, and
from volunteering in a classroom once
a week to participating in the selec-
tion of textbooks and testing materials.
When attached to a new duty station, par-
ents often believe that there isn't much
they can do to help improve their chil-
dren's education because of their short
stay. But you can help your children suc-
ceed in school, even though being in a
military family presents special obstacles
and hurdles to overcome. You can make a
significant impact on your child's educa-
tion, regardless of how long you expect to
stay at any particular duty station.
How to help your child succeed
According to the Parent Teachers
Association there are 10 specific things
you can do to help your child succeed in
school:
Talk with your child about your beliefs
and views; behave in ways that reflect
your values.
Set high but realistic expectations for
your child. Discuss their interests, as well
as areas they may need assistance in.
Build your child's self-esteem and self-
confidence.
Keep your child healthy, both physically
and mentally.
Support learning at home by becoming
involved in your children's work, offering
assistance, and sharing your experiences.
Communicate with your child's school
by attending parent-teacher conferences,
attending school functions, and sending
notes or e-mails to pertinent staff mem-
bers regarding upcoming events.
Foster exploration and discovery by
encouraging children to develop their
interests and curiosity.
Help your child develop good relations


and friendships.
Keep your child safe by giving clear
instructions on how to identify potential
risks.
Participate in community service by
helping others through volunteerism.
Where to find information
Another great resource for obtain-
ing information on education in the
United States is the U.S. Department
of Education web site. This is the place
to start learning about standards and
curriculum, current statistics regarding
America's students, and other issues. The
National Parent Information Network
site gives you access to a clearinghouse of
information within the U.S. Department
of Education system.
What else you can do
Each state has specific standards
that they require to be met by each
grade level. Learn all that you can
about your state and county curriculum
development and standards. Contact
your county office of education, as well
as your state department of education,
and request copies of this information.
Most of those can be located online.
Once you have obtained copies of this
information, study it. Plan family outings
around subject areas your children will
study. Talk about current events pertain-
ing to these subjects in your home.
Contact your local PTA group and
attend a meeting. They will help you
gain a full understanding of the edu-
cation system in your immediate area.
The PTA leadership will be familiar
with the curriculum and schedule for
school testing on local and state levels.
If testing is a concern for you, learn more
about national testing and education
reform. This site will update you on the
current debate on testing in America's
classrooms and help you to form an opin-
ion on the issue. It also offers links to
online magazines with educational news
and online resources for further investiga-
tion.
Wherever you find yourself, there are
always ways to help your children get
more from their educational opportuni-
ties.

Revolutionary LCS readies for commissioning


Will deploy with

MH-60R/S Seahawks

By Lt. j.g. Jan Bowers
Naval Surface Forces Public Affairs
P re-Commissioning Unit
Independence (LCS 2) will
be commissioned Jan. 16 at
Mobile, Ala., where construction
began nearly four years ago.
This littoral combat ship (LCS)
is the second of a new family of
surface ships for the Navy. LCS is
a fast, agile, mission-focused ship
that demonstrates the latest in
naval warfighting technology. The
ship is specifically designed to
defeat threats - such as fast sur-
face craft, quiet diesel submarines
and mines - in shallow coastal
waters.
To meet the increased demand
for mission-tailored forces packag-
es, LCS features an interchange-
able modular design that allows
the ship to be reconfigured to
meet mission requirements.
Independence is configured
with a flight deck and hangar.
The deck is capable of the launch
and recovery of two MH-60R/S
helicopters and a tactical

The Navy's first trimaran littoral combat ship, USS Independence (LCS
2), is underway in 2009 during builder's trials in the Gulf of Mexico. It's
designed to defeat asymmetric "anti-access" threats such as mines, quiet-
diesel submarines and fast surface craft. The ship includes hangar and
flight deck space for two MH-60R/S Seahawk helicopters.


unmanned air vehicle. The ship
can carry out aircraft launch and
recovery in conditions up to Sea
State 5 (in winds up to 27 knots
and wave heights up to 9.6 feet).
According to General
Dynamics, the ASW module
includes systems to be deployed
from MH-60R Seahawk helicop-
ters (Mark 54 torpedoes, sono-
buoys, Raytheon AN/AQS-22 air-
borne low-frequency sonar) and


unmanned surface vehicles (dip-
ping sonar, multi-static active
sonar and ultra-lightweight towed
array).
"The ship is large and flex-
ible enough to hold just about
anything you could think of in
terms of coastal and littoral war-
fare," said Cmdr. Michael Riley,
commanding officer, Gold Crew.
"That's one of the unique things
about Independence. I think we


are going to expand way beyond
the initial three mission sets the
ship was designed to do, and, of
course, do those extremely well."
The Sailors who will bring the
Independence to life on Jan. 16
are part of an innovative man-
ning reconstruct that reduces
crew size by requiring each Sailor
maintain high levels of profi-
ciency in multiple fields. It also
optimizes ship operability because
it is manned by a pair of rota-
tional crews ("blue" and "gold") of
40 Sailors each. These crews are
further augmented by detachment
specialists for each of the mission
modules.
"We ask every one of our Sailors
to be on their game all the time,
and in terms of manpower pro-
vide a great product," said Cmdr.
Curt Renshaw, commanding offi-
cer, Blue Crew. "That team has
come together, and with this great
product and this great ship, we
will be ready to take her and do
the nation's tasking."
"Both LCS 2 and LCS 1
are designed to meet the same
requirements with reduced
manning," said Rear Adm. Jim
Murdoch, LCS program manager.
"Manning of the ship is centered
around the question of whether


you have enough people to fight
with it."
"On other ships, Sailors from
every department help in the
kitchen, and the cooks do just that
- they cook," said Renshaw. "On
LCS, we have three cooks who
can also shoot a gun, fight a fire,
manage systems, and stand anti-
terrorism watches. Our Sailors
have a lot of skills."
Riley added, "My best machine-
gunner is a culinary specialist;
my best emergency medical tech-
nician is an electronics techni-
cian. We really brought out the
best in the Sailors we have on
board."
The rotational crew model
is already proving effective
aboard USS Freedom (LCS 1),
Independence's predecessor in the
LCS class. Freedom is currently
readying for her maiden deploy-
ment. The Navy expects to learn
key operational lessons about
Freedom in a deployment setting,
and to integrate those lessons into
the larger LCS fleet, projected to
eventually reach 55 ships.
After commissioning, Indepen-
dence will conduct further testing
and evaluation before eventually
heading to its homeport in San
Diego.


Five tips to remember when PCS moving can save time and energy


From LIFELines


Here are a few moving tips
that might prove helpful
to you and your family:
* In order to reduce stress
that can accompany a perma-
nent change of station (PCS), it's
important not to wait until the
last minute before preparing for
your move, particularly if one
has orders overseas or during
the summer months when most
transfers take place. As soon as
you are in receipt of orders, con-
tact your transportation/shipping
office and make an appointment
to meet with a relocation counsel-
or who can advise and assist you
with your move.
* While government housing


may be available at one's next
duty station, the need or option
to rent or buy a home can best be
handled by utilizing house hunt-
ing leave that does not affect one's
annual leave. Some questions
that need to be answered early
in this regard are: Are govern-
ment quarters available that will
meet your needs given the size
of your family and the amount
of household goods you possess?
If you are interested in buying a
home, are the demographics in
the area supportive of your needs
(e.g., proximity of good schools,
commute distance to your work
site, employment opportunities for
spouse, increasing real estate val-
ues, etc.). If you plan on renting,
before contacting a realty com-


pany, have you visited the base
housing office that often provides
a list of apartments, townhouses
and homes for rent according to
areas and price ranges?
* Over the years we all acquire
items that we no longer use or
need. Rather than having them
transported to our new duty sta-
tion, it's best to donate them to
charity or hold a "yard sell." This
is particularly important if one
has orders overseas or is moving
into a home smaller than the one
that is being vacated. Packing
and unpacking is hard enough
without having to waste time
on unpacking junk that takes
up space and requires energy to
store.
* The U.S. Postal Service pro-


vides various forms that can
help having one's mail forward-
ed either to a interim address,
or directly to one's new address.
While first class mail will be for-
warded up to one year following
one's move, it's best to inform
family, friends, utilities, banks
and credit card companies, maga-
zine publications, and others of
one's new address as soon as one
is resettled. Preparing these
notifications early can reduce
the potential for bills not being
paid or credit card interest being
assessed due to late payments.
* Some couples and fami-
lies arrive at their new duty
station and discover that there
may not be certain convenienc-
es that were available at their


prior location where they may
have had roomier quarters, bet-
ter schools, or shorter commutes.
Others may be upset that they
were sent to a particular place
instead of a command that was
at the top of their "dreamsheet."
In so far as happiness stems from
an appreciation of who we are and
what we have received; whereas,
unhappiness derives from a preoc-
cupation with who we are not or
what we have not received; peo-
ple are a lot happier who come to
appreciate what their new duty
station has to offer. Think posi-
tive, explore your new surround-
ings, make new friends, and your
new tour of duty might end up
being the best one of your entire
career.

There is a new plague -I. i.liiu, across

they are to remove. The only
way these deformities can be
removed is through a radi-

plague is "debt."
I know this sounds dra-

can ruin your life. Often
people go into debt because
they are seeking freedom.

It is easy to find yourself deeply in debt
today. Credit companies offer credit cards to
teenagers, then place high limits on them.
Many people get several credit card applica-
tions every week in the mail. It is so easy
to buy things on credit today that it almost
feels like you are paying with fake money.
"Have it now, pay later" sounds appeal-
ing, especially when you really want some-
thing, or even when you convince yourself
that you "need" it. But what credit really
means is "Have it now, pay a lot more later."
Many people are so maxed out that they
can only pay the minimum payments.
Chances are, if you only pay the minimum
amount, you will never pay off your card
because you are only paying the interest.
So what is the solution to the plague of
debt? Like I said before - you need radi-
cal surgery. Get out all your credit cards
and perform plastic surgery on them with
scissors. That way you can't spend more
than you earn. If you want to save money,
you have to make it more difficult to spend

it. That helps you avoid impulsive buying.
Here are some other -u 4.--i inni to help you
reduce your debt.
* Set a budget. This is vitally important.
Even if you "need" something, that doesn't
mean you have money for it. You need to
know how much money you have and make
it stretch. This gets you in the habit of
thinking things through
before you buy.
* Use cash. If you can't
control your credit card
use, withdraw cash for
each week and keep it in an
envelope. When the money
is gone, don't buy anything
else.
* Trim the fat. Take a
look at your expenses and
find things that you can do
without. Do you really need
200 cable channels? Maybe
you should cut back on the
) ustin Top text messages or stop eat-
ing out so much. How about
cigarettes or beer? Many people spend a
lot of money on things that aren't good for
them. Why not hit two birds with one stone?
Trim your budget and your waistline.
* Pay off the credit. Use your extra
money to pay down your credit cards and
loans. Interest alone can cost a fortune.
Except on rare occasions, your debt should
always be going down, not up.
"But wait," you say, "I need to use cred-
it so I have a good credit score." Having
a good credit score doesn't mean you are
financially wise. As one financial advisor
said, "A credit score is really an 'I love debt'
score." The things that will most affect
your ability to get a loan are your debt-to-
income ratio, your down payment and your
payment history for a house or auto loan.
Credit cards damage your chances more
often than they improve them. So what are
you waiting for? It is time for a little finan-
cial nip and tuck. If you feel you need to
keep one card for emergencies, choose one
with the lowest APR. Then cut all the oth-
ers up, especially if they have large bal-
ances. This kind of plastic surgery results
in the best kind of facelift .. . a smile.

states interpret the act to
apply only if the military
service member and the
spouse live under the same
roof.
"A number of states
believe that to get this tax
break, or tax exemption,
the spouse and the ser-
vice member must have
the same domicile," said
Shumake. "Different states
interpret this possible
requirement differently."
The law does not neces-
sarily mean that someone
who makes their perma-
nent home in one state will
never be taxed in the state
they're living in because of
a service member's military
orders, Shumake said.
He explained that the
act states only that income
earned from work per-
formed in the nondomi-
ciliary state is not taxable.
That doesn't mean the
spouse wouldn't have to pay
income tax on such income
to the state of legal residen-
cy.
"Of course, there are
those states that don't
have any income tax at
all," Shumake said. "If the
spouse were a legal resident
of those states, then they
would likely not pay income
tax from [work] performed


in any state."
Understanding the
meaning of "domicile" and
knowing how to prove it
are keys to understand-
ing the law, Shumake said.
First, said Shumake, the
terms "domicile," and "legal
residence," are synonymous.
A person can have only
one domicile at a time. It
is one's primary home or
permanent residence, and
it's formed by being physi-
cally present in a state and
simultaneously forming the
intent to remain there for
the indefinite future.
"You have to prove your
intent by establishing cer-
tain contacts with the state,
such as voting there, buying
property there, getting your
professional license there,
claiming in-state tuition
rates there, registering a
vehicle or obtaining a driv-
er's license there," Shumake
said.
"Of all of those, voting
may turn out to be the most
important for proving your
domicile for the purposes
of the [Military Spouses
Residency Relief Act]."
The act also has an effect
on personal property taxes,
Shumake said.

new law protects
military spouses
rom being taxed for
work performed in states
where they're living out-
side their home states as a
result of military orders.
President Barack Obama
signed the Military Spouses
Residency Relief Act, an
amendment to the 2003
Servicemembers Civil
Relief Act, on Nov. 11.
"This act, among other
things, would provide that
when a service member
leaves his or her home state
in accord with military
orders, the service mem-
ber's spouse may retain res-
idency in his or her home
state for voting and tax
purposes, after relocating
from that state to accom-
pany the service member,"
the president said in a Nov.
12 White House statement.
The new law means a
change in fundamental
tax law for military spous-
es, said Army Col. Shawn
Shumake, director of legal
policy in the office of the
undersecretary of defense
for personnel and readiness.
"If a spouse accompa-
nies a military member
to a state that is not the
spouse's [state of legal
residence] and does so
solely to be with the ser-
vice member under mili-
tary orders, then the
income the spouse earns
from services performed in
that nondomiciliary state
cannot be taxed," said
Shumake in a Pentagon

Work begins on new energy conservation project


Saving $3.3

million annually

By Sue Brink
NAVFAC Southeast Public Affairs Officer
Projects are underway with
the recently awarded
Utility Energy Services
Contract (UESC) that is expected
to reduce electrical energy and
water consumption by an estimat-
ed $3.3 million annually at NAS
Jacksonville.
Facilities Engineering
Acquisition Division of NAS
Jacksonville Public Works
Department (PWD) awarded an
Energy Conservation Project
(ECP) in September 2009 to
TECO Energy in the amount of
$17.2 million.
"When it comes to energy and
water conservation, we're doing
everything we can to be good


stewards of our environment and
we're very proud of our environ-
mental achievements," said NAS
Jacksonville Commanding Officer
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. "Our new
LEED (Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design) certified
facilities incorporate the latest in
energy and water efficiencies."
Scorby added, "As a result of
our base-wide energy audit, this
ECP will upgrade close to three
dozen buildings for an estimated
savings of more than $3 million.
That's the kind of progress that
we're very excited about here at
NAS Jacksonville."
The ECP was the result of a
detailed energy audit conduct-
ed in over 30 buildings at NAS
Jacksonville. Each facility was
examined for potential improve-
ments to lighting systems and
heating and cooling systems.
Projects under this UESC will
replace inefficient air handling
units, motors, compressors and


controls.
In addition, water conserva-
tion technologies will be used
to reduce water consumption.
Initially, renewable energy tech-


nologies including day lighting
and solar water heating will be
installed in five facilities, with
more to follow in a future UESC
project.
The Department of Defense is
mandated to reduce electrical con-
sumption 30 percent by 2015. In
addition, a new executive order
(EO) 13514 was signed Oct. 5,
2009, by the president which
intensifies the energy savings
requirements even more.
Locally, a Commander Naval
Region Southeast instruction
(CNRSE 4101.1) was signed in
August 2009. This instruction
brings the overall energy manage-
ment plan down to the installa-
tion.
"These orders and instructions
are the driving forces behind
these energy initiatives," said
Cliff Plante, NAS Jacksonville
PWD resource efficiency man-
ager. "An important first step in
complying with the instruction


was the formation of a Building
Energy Monitor (BEM) program."
"BEM training was provided
to 127 military and civilian indi-
viduals," according to the NAS
Jacksonville Building Energy
Monitor Program Director AWF1
Mike Blair. "We have now com-
pleted training for 96 percent of
the facilities at NAS. In the com-
ing months, you will see progress
in the way energy and water con-
sumption are reduced."
Construction on UESC Phase
II projects for NAS Jacksonville
began in December 2009. PWD
facility managers will be involved
in scheduling and implementation
of the new technologies at their
assigned facilities.
"The NAS Jacksonville Energy
Team appreciates cooperation
from all tenants while this work
is accomplished. We will make
every effort to keep workplace
disruptions to a minimum," said
Plante.

SPOUSE: New law enacted E


From Page 12

"The [act] now says that
a nondomiciliary state can-
not tax personal property
such as automobiles and
boats if that property is
in the state only because
the spouse is with the
service member in that
state in compliance with
military orders," he said.
For all the positive ben-
efits the law offers military
spouses, it can be confus-
ing, Shumake acknowl-
edged.
The Military Spouses
Residency Relief Act
addresses only tax law con-
cerning income earned in
nondomiciliary states, the
colonel said, and doesn't
change the rules for estab-
lishing and proving legal
residency.
"One common misper-
ception is that the new law
allows a spouse simply to
'choose' his or her spouse's
domicile. This is not true,"
he said.
"Domicile must still be
demonstrated or proven


under the rules that have
always been in place.
Likewise, a spouse does
not 'inherit' the domi-
cile of the military mem-
ber through marriage."
Spouses also should be
aware that the law doesn't
allow them to recapture or
regain a previously aban-
doned domicile, he added.
"For example, if the
spouse established a Texas
domiciliary status and
then moved to Virginia
under orders with the [ser-
vice member], and while in
Virginia the spouse regis-
tered to vote and bought
property in Virginia and
got a real estate license
from Virginia, then it looks
like the spouse has estab-
lished Virginia as the new
domicile," Shumake said.
"The [law] is not likely to
allow the spouse to aban-
don Virginia and resume
or recapture Texas domi-
ciliary status while still in
Virginia."
It seems the matter of
how the law affects driver's


licenses has left some in a
bit of a quandary, as well.
Whether a spouse needs
to obtain a new driver's
license in each new state
the spouse lives in is a mat-
ter of state law and com-
pletely unaffected by the
Military Spouses Residency
Relief Act, Shumake said.
While the new law can
be confusing, help is only
as far away as the nearest
legal assistance attorney,
Shumake said.
He also suggested check-
ing with appropriate state
tax authorities for any rules
they may have put out,
especially with respect to
refunds for tax year 2009.

Get ready for tax season


By Rufus Bundrige, financial specialist
NAS Jax Fleet and Family Support Center

You can tell that tax season is com-
ing when a heap of tax-related mail
starts arriving. You'll get some
interest-earned statements and maybe a
1099 or two. If you changed jobs, you'll
receive multiple W-2s. Charitable organi-
zations may gift you with receipts detail-
ing your generosity. You get the picture.
We recommend you shove all tax-related
paperwork in the same file folder so it's out
of sight until you need it. Then you'll know
where it is when you're ready to deal with
taxes (on or before the April 15 deadline,
we hope). Don't go out and buy a special
file. Don't scan all the documents for sys-
tematic filing on your computer. Don't lose
sleep debating whether information for
the Schedule A&B should be alphabetized
under "A" or "B." Just find a manila folder
and shove everything in it.
Take a Close Look at
Your Financial Goals
As you approach tax time, review your


financial goals. How does your checkbook
stack up against your bills? What would
you like to be able to afford? Record your
long-term and short-term goals to guide
your financial decisions going forward. In
terms of taxes, it helps to look at your
finances two years at a time -- the current
year and the one to come -- to help decide
how you can best manage your money to
reduce your tax obligation and to meet
your financial goals.
Taxes are just a part of what should be
your overall financial planning goals. We
say "should be" because we know how you
have tried to become a contestant on that
new game show, "Who Wants to Ignore
Their Money Until It's Too Late." You're
not in the mood to create a plan and stick
to it, so how about just sneaking a peek at
your financial situation by reviewing your
tax forms from the 2002 tax year.
Exemptions
If the number of exemptions you claimed
changed from 2001 to 2002, you may want
to look at your life insurance coverage and
your will It's hard to look at those things


if you don't have them (hint, hint). If your
family has grown, you may need more cov-
erage. If you have recently been divorced
or widowed, you may need to change ben-
eficiary designations on your life insurance
policies..
Deductions
You know that mortgage interest pay-
ments are tax deductible, but maybe you
didn't know that a home equity line of
credit may be too. If you're carrying credit
card debt, think about paying it off with a
home equity loan. Then you may be able
to deduct the interest at tax time. Be care-
ful, though, not to ring up more credit card
bills, and bear in mind that you risk los-
ing your home if you're unable to make
the loan payments. Consult a tax advisor
about your individual circumstances.
Tax-Deferred Income
If your income wasn't sufficiently adjust-
ed with tax-deferred contributions to an
employer-sponsored retirement plan or
IRA don't make the mistake again next
year. Your income is reduced by your con-
tributions and the money can grow income-


tax-deferred until you start withdrawing
it.
Financial planning provides 10 steps you
can take to get your house in order--and
not just at tax time. If you're ready to take
the leap, click to The Work and get a com-
prehensive financial plan that's personal-
ized just for you.

The school reduces tuition
and fees and receives
matching funds of the
same amount from the VA,
reducing the out-of-pocket
expense to the beneficiary.
In addition to tuition, the
Post-9/11 GI Bill offers a
housing allowance equal to
the basic housing allowance
payable to a military E-5
with dependents in addi-
tion to $1,000 annually to
cover the costs of books and
supplies. Certain eligibility
restrictions apply.
Another benefit for ser-
vice members is trans-
ferability. Any unused
educational benefits may
be transferred to either a
spouse or dependent chil-
dren. Family members must
be enrolled in the Defense

Immunizations are good medicine, Part two


By Capt. Joseph McQuade, M.D.
NH Jax Public Health Director


As noted last week, adults need peri-
odic immunizations not unlike the
immunizations we give to our chil-
dren. Some adults incorrectly assume that
the vaccines they received as children 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, bringing new vaccines into our lives
that were not available during our child-
hood.
* The immunity provided by some of the
vaccines received in childhood can to fade
over time.
* Adults become more susceptible to seri-
ous disease caused by common infections
as they age (for example, influenza and
pneumococcal pneumonia).
Let's look at other kind of shots adults
need to get and why.
Q: Who should get the shingles vac-
cine?
People who are 60 years of age and older
should receive a single dose of the shingles
vaccine if they have not had the shingles
yet. In October 2006 the CDC recommend-
ed a new shingles vaccine for adults 60
years of age and older in the U.S. The vac-
cine will prevent much of the pain and suf-
fering caused by shingles.
Shingles is a disease caused by the reac-
tivation of chickenpox virus. Shingles most
often occurs in elderly people and people
with weakened immune systems. Common
symptoms of shingles include a rash, usu-
ally along a nerve path, and severe pain.
Although people do not die from shingles,
the pain can be so severe that it leads to
sleeplessness, weight loss, anorexia, inter-
ference with basic daily activities such as
dressing, bathing and eating and an inabil-
ity to participate in normal social activi-
ties. The pain can last for months or even
years.
Only people who have had chickenpox
can get shingles. They get shingles when
chickenpox virus, which can live silently in
the nervous system for decades, reawakens.
This reawakening of an old chickenpox
infection is caused by a weakening of the
immune system from advancing age, virus-
es (such as the AIDS virus), or immune
suppressive drugs used to treat cancers.
Q: Should adults get the pneumococ-


cal pneumonia vaccine?
The following groups of adults should get
the pneumococcal vaccine:
* Adults over 65 because they are at high
risk of pneumococcal pneumonia infections.
* Adults with heart or lung disease, liver
disease, alcoholism, diabetes or cancer.
* Adults without a functioning spleen.
* Adults between 19 and 64 years of age
who smoke cigarettes.
Pneumococcal bacteria can cause hun-
dreds of cases of meningitis, bloodstream
infections and pneumonia every year in the
United States. Because the pneumococcal
vaccine does not cause serious side effects,
the benefits of the vaccine clearly outweigh
its risks.
Q: Should teenagers and adults get
the hepatitis B vaccine?
The hepatitis B vaccine should be given
to all teenagers and adults who have not
yet received the hepatitis B vaccine or been
infected by hepatitis B virus.
Every year in the United States about
5,000 people die soon after catching hepa-
titis B virus. In addition, about 10,000
people become chronically infected, put-
ting them at high risk of developing the
long-term consequences of hepatitis B virus
infection: cirrhosis and liver cancer. In fact,
with the exception of influenza virus, hepa-
titis B virus causes more severe disease
and death in the United States than any
other vaccine-preventable disease.
Because hepatitis B virus is a common
cause of severe disease and death in the
United States, and the hepatitis B vac-
cine does not cause permanent damage or
death, the benefits of the hepatitis B vac-
cine clearly outweigh its risks.
Q: Who should get the HPV (human
papilloma virus) vaccine to help pre-
vent cervical cancer?
HPV is the most common sexually trans-
mitted disease in the United States and
in the world. Twenty million Americans
are currently infected with HPV and an
additional 6 million Americans are infected
every year. Half of those newly infected
with HPV are between 15 and 24 years of
age.
Human papilloma virus (HPV) is a virus
that infects the skin, genital area and lin-
ing of the cervix. Typically, HPV infects
the skin and causes warts. Although


unsightly, warts are not harmful. But
sometimes HPV infects the genital area,
including the lining of the cervix. When
HPV infects the cervix, it can cause cervi-
cal cancer.
The CDC recommends that adolescents
between 11 and 12 years of age receive the
HPV vaccine. The vaccine can be given to
girls and boys as young as 9 years of age
and is also recommended for all teenage
and adult men and women between 13 and
26 years of age. The vaccine is given as
a series of three shots; the second shot is
given two months after the first; and the
third shot is given 6 months after the first.
Boys get the vaccine to stem the spread of
infection among sexual partners.
Because the HPV vaccine is made using
only a single protein from the virus, it can't
cause HPV and, therefore, can't cause cer-
vical cancer. The vaccine may cause red-
ness and tenderness at the site of injection.
The vaccine may also cause a slight fever.
Immunizations are good medicine.
There are many vaccines that travelers
to the underdeveloped world need to con-
sider. The CDC has a Yellow Book at www.
cdc.gov/travel/content/yellowbook with
updated guidelines as to what shots you'll
need wherever you travel.
The recently renovated immunizations
clinic in the Family Medicine Clinic at
Naval Hospital Jax is open expanded hours
to accommodate our patients through the
remainder of the Flu season.
Call our central appointment number


542-4677 for information. We realize it
takes faith in modern medicine to come in
to get a vaccine when we are feeling fine
and don't think we need it. We monitor
our safety practices and review rates of
adverse reactions to our vaccines carefully
to ensure we are delivering the safest and
most effective medication to our families.
We know vaccines matter.

During the winter season, the
demand to turn on the heat is ris-
ing. Being the ever-vigilant stew-
ards of the environment we strive to be,
heat in office buildings will not be activat-
ed until it is absolutely necessary. With
your help we hope to significantly reduce
environmentally harmful emissions this
winter.


There is relief for service members
involved in a civil lawsuit, whose
military service does not allow them
to fully participate or which otherwise plac-
es them at a disadvantage.
A previous article explained the process
for vacating default judgments under the
Servicemembers' Civil Relief Act (SCRA).
A separate section of this Act provides for
stays of proceedings.
A stay of proceedings is a pause in the
action, a "time-out" which prevents con-
tinuation of the case. It does not dismiss
the case; it merely suspends action until an
appropriate time. Like the other section,
this one applies only to civil, not criminal
cases.
Section 522 of the SCRA is intended to
prevent the military obligations of service
members from interfering with both pur-
suing and defending a civil suit. It allows
either side to ask for a stay at any time
during the proceedings before final judg-
ment.
A stay of 90 days is automatic if the fol-
lowing two items are submitted to the
court: (1) a letter from the service member
explaining why his or her military ser-
vice materially affects his or her ability to
appear AND stating a date when he or she
would be available to appear; and (2) a let-
ter from the service member's commanding
officer stating that military service pre-
vents the service member's appearance and
that leave is not authorized. Both letters
are needed to invoke Section 522.
If the service member wishes to request
a stay longer than 90 days, he or she may
do so either at the time of the initial stay
request, or at a later date after discovering
that a 90-day stay is insufficient.
If a second stay request is appropriate,
the same procedure outlined above must
be followed, and two new letters must be
filed with the court. Section 522 includes
a unique protection for service members: if
his or her request for an additional stay is
denied, the court must appoint counsel to
represent him or her.
The standard which must be met is that

Keep in mind a few tips to help lower
energy costs this winter:
A sweater or a blanket is often better
than a space heater.
The copier won't get cold at night, so
turn down the heat on the way out.
Having six personal refrigerators is a
good opportunity to get one energy-saving
unit.
Start clearing that desk clutter and print
off only what you really need.


affect" the ability to appear, not just that
the individual is a member of the Armed
Forces.
This is most often the case with deploy-
ments, temporary assignments, and train-
ing assignments because the service mem-
ber is not in the area to be able to appear.
The opposite is true: if the service mem-
ber is present, or if the service member is
authorized to take leave, his or her mili-
tary service does not materially affect
his or her ability to appear, and the stay
request will likely be denied.
Those plaintiffs or defendants who may
use Section 522 to request a stay of pro-
ceedings include any active duty service
member, or any individual whose military
service terminated less than 90 days from
the date of the request.
Once the service member is able to
appear, the stay expires and the case con-
tinues. It is protection for military mem-
bers whose service legitimately warrants
it, and for whom it would be unfair to go on
in their absence.
Legal assistance attorneys can help you
with filing stay requests and with drafting
correspondence. For more information, call
542-2565, Ext. 3006.

Keep your family safe

Practice operational security on social media


By Bruce Moody
Fleet and Family Support Program, Commander,
Navy Installations Command

sailors and Navy fami-
lies can prevent
potential adver-
saries from discover-
ing critical informa-
tion on social media
sites by practicing
operational secu-
rity. Examples of
critical information
includes where a ship
is going and when it
is returning home or
information about Sailors
who deploy as individual
augmentees.
Navy families, too, should remain
vigilant in not volunteering any informa-
tion that could unnecessarily put their
Sailors in harm's way.
Deployed and even day-to-day operations
are in many cases classified, and those
sharing information with each loved ones
or friends should recognize the importance
of keeping sensitive information secure.
"Family members are vital to the success
of the Navy," Shauna Turner, manager of
the Deployment Support Program at the
Fleet and Family Support Program, said.
"But, potential adversaries also under-
stand this."
It is not unprecedented for spouses and
family members of U.S. military personnel
to be targeted for intelligence collection.
This is true in the United States and espe-
cially true overseas.
Navy family members all know some bits


of critical information. It may not be clas-
sified, and it may even seem insignificant.
But, to the potential adversary, it is a piece
of the puzzle.
The power of emerging
media tools is a two-edged
sword: It makes infor-
mation exceptionally
accessible when post-
ed - for anyone who is
interested, including
potential adversar-
ies. When communi-
cating on social media
sites do not post the
following information: -
Exact deployment dates
or return dates.
This applies to ships, subs,
n squadrons and individual aug-
mentees. It also applies to dates or
location of a ship's upcoming ports of call;
detailed information about a mission; ref-
erences to trends in crew's morale or an
individual's personal problems; details
concerning security procedures, response
times or tactics; information about equip-
ment readiness and speculations about
future operations. "The main rule is to
simply use common sense," Turner said.
"Think before you post. Anything you post
on social media, is instantly available
around the world. When in doubt, don't
post it."
Social media sites allow Sailors and
Navy families to keep in contact like never
before. It is a wonderful way to feel close
to someone who is far away. Sailors and
Navy families are encouraged to enjoy the
connection that social media offers while
practicing operational security.
