NAS Jax a hub for Haitian relief
By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO F ,-


NAS Jacksonville person-
nel are working around
the clock to support the
Navy's humanitarian assistance/
disaster relief operation for sur-
vivors of the massive earthquake
that struck Haiti Jan. 12. The 7.0
magnitude earthquake was the
strongest in more than 200 years
and the Navy is delivering signifi-
cant amounts of assistance.
As Navy ships and personnel
arrive00000, and with more on
the way, NAS Jax military and
civilian employees are refuel-
ing aircraft, off-loading trucks,
building pallets for food, water
and medical supplies and load-
ing them onto the numerous Navy
transport planes that have been
arriving here from all over the
country.
Also, hundreds of trucks sup-
porting U.S. Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM) Combat Task
Force 43 have been arriving at
NAS Jax loading docks with thou-
sands of pounds of material to be
transported to NS Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba - and ultimately to
Haiti. The station's air traffic con-
trollers are ensuring the safe flow
of additional air traffic.
"The Navy is swiftly mobilizing
all available resources to assist
interagency and multinational
efforts in relieving human suf-
fering in Haiti. NAS Jacksonville
Sailors and civilians are working
tirelessly to ensure the Navy's sig-
nificant humanitarian assistance
and disaster relief efforts run
smoothly," said NAS Jacksonville
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack
Scorby Jr.
He added, "Aircraft arriving at
our airfield are promptly refueled
and loaded with medical, water
and food supplies. The Navy's
assistance reflects our nation's
compassion and commitment to
the Haitian people who have been

deeply impacted by this tragedy."
As an advanced logistics stag-
ing base for the relief efforts, NAS
Jax plays a pivotal role in relief
operations -- becoming a "distri-
bution hub" for relief materials
headed to the Caribbean.
"We were told Jan. 14 to pack
up because we were going to
fly down to support USS Carl
Vinson - or as needed, from NS
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba - to help
the survivors in Haiti," explained
Lt. j.g. James Sabin, maintenance
officer for VRC-40 Detachment 4,
who arrived at NAS Jax in one of
the squadron's C-2A Greyhound


logistics aircraft.
"We packed everything and 24
hours later, we arrived at NAS
Jax. We have 22 personnel on our
plane and another Greyhound
coming behind us with 24 person-
nel. We'll do whatever we can to
help," said Sabin.
The C-2A was quickly refu-
eled, loaded with relief supplies
and departed en route to NS
Guantanamo Bay two hours later.
"I'm very excited to have the
opportunity to assist the victims
and relief workers. I was shocked
at the amount of devastation and
destruction caused by the earth-


quake and I'm pleased to know
that we'll be able to help. It gives
me a brighter outlook on the
future of mankind," said AEAA
Christopher Steffen of VRC-40.

At 8:05 a.m. on Jan. 14,
LANAS Jacksonville Executive
Officer Capt. Jeffrey Maclay informed
the Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
team that the terrorist threat condition
was raised to "Threatcon Charlie" - after
receiving information on a potential bomb
threat to the station.
Maclay said, "Intelligence sourc-

'Remember! Celebrate! Act!'


Honoring the life of

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

By Brian Chwalisz
Jax Air News Intern

Focusing on the theme of "Remem-
ber! Celebrate! Act!" hundreds of
sailors and civilians observed the
birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Jan. 14 at NAS Jacksonville All Saints
Chapel.
With only a limited number of pews
remaining open, the event kicked off


with an elegant rendition of the nation-
al anthem sung by AD2 Naqita Foster.
Chaplin (Lt.) Thomas Bingol delivered the
invocation.
"Dr. King was a man who inspired us to
envision a world where all men and women
are treated equally, a man who gave what
is considered one of the most memorable
speeches ever delivered," said NAS Jax
Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
"Today we honor and remember that
great visionary in our annual observance
of Dr. King's birthday."

Looking back to Nov. 2, 1943...


During World War II, WAVES
(Women Accepted for
Volunteer Emergency Service)
helped keep Navy aircraft good
to go. At NAS Jacksonville,
three aviation machinist's
mates perform maintenance on
an SNJ-4 Texan - the primary
trainer of naval aviators until
its retirement in 1956. These
women were graduates of the
Naval Air Technical Training
Center in Norman, Okla.,
where they spent four months
learning to repair and overhaul
aircraft engines.

Going back to school humbling


By Sarah Smiley
Special contributor


This fall, my friend, Aaron, used
this as his Facebook status:
"There was a creepy old guy in
my Masters class today. It was me."
I laughed for a long time about that,
even as I was also in the process of
applying to graduate school. Things
would be different for me, I reasoned.
A few weeks later, I failed the
Graduate Records Examination
(GRE). This was my first remind-
er that it's been a long time since I
did algebra. Dustin had tried to warn
me before the test.
Dustin: "Don't you think you should
study for the GRE?"
Me: (waving my hand at the air)
"What? I've graduated from high
school and have a Bachelors of
Science. I know this stuff backwards
and forwards."
On the day of the exam, I stared
at the computer screen like some-
one looking at a foreign language.
I couldn't even recall how to multi-
ply fractions. Out of a possible 800
points on the math portion of the test,
I scored a 220. I think they even give
you 200 points just for showing up. It
was the first of many humbling expe-
riences.
Except for volunteering in my sons'
elementary school classrooms, I have
not been in an academic setting in the
past eleven years.
The extent of my school supply
shopping has been gathering Elmer's
glue, crayons and scissors with a
blunt tip. The last time I bought a
textbook, searching for it on Amazon.
com was not an option. There was
much brushing up to do.
For a month, I carried my GRE
prep books on my hip like a fourth
child. I relearned everything I had
forgotten in the past decade.
When I retook the GRE exam,
I brought my dismal math score up
to the above average range. I was


Hey, MoneyChic!
It's already the new year and I'm
vowing to do better with my financ-
es. I'm tired of falling behind on
bills, barely making the rent and
never having anything set aside for
emergencies. My resolution is to
live on a budget. Where do I begin
MoneyChic?
MoneyChic says: Many Ameri-
cans are feeling just like you. There
are more people carrying large cred-
it card balances than ever before.
Living on a budget is one way to pre-
vent further anxiety and debt, plus
puts you in control.
To begin your budgeting process,
simply look at your recent LES and
see what income you have coming
into your account this month. Use
the figure that is after taxes, social
security and other deductions.
If you have a spouse or part time
job, be sure to include these incomes
as well and also any child support
that may be coming into the equa-
tion.
Next, it's time to look at your
ooo


accepted to the graduate program at
the University of Maine at Orono.
To be sure, now is not the most
convenient time for me to go back
to school. I still have a 3-year old at
home, and my oldest son is only in the
third grade.
But when Military One Source
announced a new Department of
Defense program, Military Spouse
Career Advancement Account
(according to the website: "provides
a lifetime benefit of up to $6,000 of
Financial Assistance for military
spouses who are pursuing licenses,
certificates, credentials or degree
programs leading to employment in
Portable Career Fields"), I couldn't
pass up the chance to start on my
once long term goal of earning a
Masters and then a PhD in mass com-
munications.
Sure, the timing is not ideal, but
after having three children, I now
know that "good timing" is mostly
irrelevant and a matter of luck. If I
am ever to accomplish my own goals,
outside of motherhood, I will have
to snatch the opportunity from the
clutches of time.
Most people are surprised to learn
that I don't already have a masters in
communications considering that I've
been working in the field for the past
11 years. In fact, I don't even have an
undergraduate degree in communica-
tions.
My writing career began almost
haphazardly, and eventually I was
earning positions based solely on my
experience, not any verifiable creden-
tials.
I learned the ins and outs of the
publishing world through my agent,
editors, and, mostly, by trial and
error as I published two books and
syndicated my newspaper column.
On the face of it, going back to



HEY, MONEYCHIC!


expenses. Begin with your fixed
bills. These are items you pay every
month, things like your rent/mort-
gage, car payments, insurance, util-
ity bills, credit cards and/or loans.
Then make a list of the "vari-
ables." These are items that you
pay for monthly, but not set in stone,
extra things like eating out, renting
movies, buying gifts, paying for dry
cleaning or lawn care.
It's easy to underestimate these
amounts. You might want to pull
out several months of bank state-
ments and take a good hard look to
see what you are honestly spending.
Other people estimate 10 percent
of their basic income for a starting
point for variable expenses.
Once you've jotted down your fixed
and variable expenses, it's time to
subtract them from you income.
What is left over? Hopefully, you
have some extra and you are not
in negative numbers. Here comes
the fork in the road . . . if you have
money left over, this is where you
make your plan.


school for journalism almost seems
like going from Point B to Point A.
But the truth is, I have a great deal
to learn.
I was reminded of just how much I
have to learn during my first gradu-
ate school class last week.
The professional articles and theo-
ries tossed around in conversation at
the classroom table were as foreign to
me as that first GRE exam.
Granted, I know many theories on
writing, but most of them go some-
thing like this: "If I'm working on my
column and my son starts begging for
milk, I'm likely to accidentally type
the words 'milk,' 'not now,' and 'just
a minute' into the text." And, "If the
kids are yelling at each other while
you are doing a live radio interview, it
is probably illegal to lock them out of
the house, so be ready instead to dash
out the front door and sit on the front
porch (even in your bathrobe). Do this
in a deft, seamless fashion, and the
interviewer and audience never know
the difference."
These are the kinds of things I
know about mass communication,
and while they have served me well
thus far, I am grateful to Military
One Source for this opportunity to
finally learn the real stuff.
True, there was a creepy old lady in
my master's class this week. And yes,
she was me.
She had never heard of literary crit-
ic Walter Benjamin before, and she
found doodles by a child on the pages
of her notebook. She never knew that
columns like hers signify the ritual-
driven aspect of the newspaper indus-
try, and she could only outsmart her
younger, fully academic embedded
classmates in a duel of SpongeBob
Squarepants or Star Wars trivial pur-
suit.
But still, I'm quite proud of her.


I recommend starting a savings
account to build up an emergency
fund (that takes care of those unex-
pected set backs you mentioned)
and start paying additional princi-
pal towards any loans you have that
charge you interest.
If however, you are in the negative,
it's time to back up and take a look
at your expenses you listed.
Start with your variable expenses
and see where you can shave down
the numbers. Continue to do this
until you have a balanced budget.
If you find yourself struggling,
there are other options. There are
two free financial counseling options
open to you.
You can call Navy Marine Corps
Relief Society and make an appoint-
ment for face-to-face budget counsel-
ing.
You may also call Military One
Source at 1-800-342-9647 and use
the 12 free sessions you are entitled
to with a trained financial counselor
who can help you formulate a viable
budget for 2010.

Tax center now open


By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO
The NAS Jacksonville VITA
Tax Center in Building 13
at the main gate officially
opened for business Jan. 15 with a
short ribbon cutting ceremony.
The tax center is run by mili-
tary and civilian volunteers who
provide free basic tax preparation
services through the Voluntary
Income Tax Assistance program
(VITA).
"This tax center is all about
Sailors helping Sailors. It's a
great opportunity for our cus-
tomers to have their taxes done
efficiently and at no cost. And, to
get their returns quickly," said
Capt. Karen Fischer-Anderson,
commanding officer of Navy Legal
Service Office.
Last year, the NAS Jax VITA
Tax Center processed 3,409 state
and federal tax returns saving
customers $490,822. Refunds
obtained totaled $4,895,452.
"This is the service that keeps
on giving. We've been offering
this service for many year, unfor-
tunately many people still don't


know it exists. It's such a great
deal and we save our clients so
much money in tax preparation
fees," stated VITA volunteer Bob
Johnson, a Navy retiree and for-
mer Internal Revenue Service
employee. Johnson has volun-
teered at the tax center for the
past three years and is considered
the "go-to" person for most tax-
related questions.
The tax center has a full-time
receptionist to greet customers
and set up appointments and
eight full-time and several part-
time volunteers who have been
specially trained by the Internal
Revenue Service to handle most
tax situations. There is also a
special area set up to children to
watch movies while their parents
are having their taxes prepared.
This is the only free tax prep-
aration service on base. Private
tax preparers charge $50-$100 or
more per return and often pres-
sure Sailors to pay high rates to
get their refunds more quickly.
Volunteers will e-file almost all
returns, ensuring fast refunds.
Those eligible for the free tax
preparation include:


* All active duty service mem-
bers and their dependents
* All retirees and their depen-
dents
* Reservists on active duty for
more than 30 days
* Reservists within 30 days of
demobilization
* Reservists involved in pre-
mobilization
Before making an appointment,
customers should have:
* All 2009 W-2s and 1099s
* Copies of social security cards
for taxpayers and dependents
* Taxpayers) military ID cards
* Bank account numbers and
routing numbers
* Any other tax records includ-
ing copies of 2008 tax returns if
available
VERY IMPORTANT: If you do
not bring either a copy of your
social security card or a previous
year's tax return, we will not be
able to prepare your return. You
must also have this documenta-
tion for all dependents.
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 a
power of attorney that specifically
covers tax filing purposes or an
IRS Power of Attorney Form 2848

The tax center is open Monday,
Wednesday and Friday from
8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday and


Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1

'Sunseekers' execute Operation Sleigh Ride


From the USO


Troop morale was the mission of choice for an NAS
Jacksonville-based squadron and the Greater Jacksonville
Area USO during the busy 2009 holiday season.
The "Sunseekers" of VR-58 and the Greater Jacksonville Area
USO perfectly executed "Operation Sleigh Ride," a first-of-its-kind
partnership to expedite delivery of hundreds of pounds of "in-
kind" donations received from the Jacksonville community for our
troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Greater Jacksonville Area USO Executive Director John
Shockley brought his idea to the Sunseekers, commanded by
Cmdr. Ken Johansen.
The squadron volunteered to operate as Santa's helpers by
delivering more than 5,000 lbs. of Greater Jacksonville Area USO
goodie boxes to our men and women serving in harm's way.
"We were absolutely thrilled to have an opportunity to partner
with the Greater Jacksonville Area USO to get these boxes in-the-
ater as quickly as possible," said VR-58 Executive Officer Cmdr.
Chris Fordham,


"Our objective was to keep our combat troops' morale high
during the holiday season. Even though our mission is to trans-
port troops and cargo in and out of theater, we felt it was also
important to show our troops just how much our folks back home
missed and supported them," said Fordham.
"I cannot be more proud of each member of the Sunseekers and
of our partnership with the Greater Jacksonville Area USO, a
fantastic supporter of our active duty military population," contin-
ued Fordham.
"We flew slightly over 100 flight hours and expended consider-
able manpower to ensure the completion of this mission."
'A special thank-you goes out to every member of the VR-58
Sunseekers and the Greater Jacksonville Area USO for improving
the quality of life and morale of our service members during the
2009 holiday season," said Shockley.

just beyond comprehension. It's always a challenge get-

always been as a first responder for humanitarian relief,"
said Parker.
"We're transporting supplies down to Guantanamo Bay.
From there, they will be taken to USS Carl Vinson and
then heloed into Haiti. I think you will see a huge impact
from the Navy, beginning immediately."
"We have a lot of Navy assets already on scene, with
many more on the way, including our medical ship, USNS
Comfort. We are really putting forth our best effort to help

Some of the supplies arriving at NAS Jacksonville

Haitian relief chronology


From Navy News Service
United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM)
deployed an assessment team to Haiti Jan. 12 in
support of U.S. relief efforts in the aftermath of the
deadly earthquake. The team included U.S. military engi-
neers, operational planners, a command and control group
and communication specialists. They arrived in Haiti on two
C-130 Hercules transport aircraft. The team is working with
U.S. Embassy personnel, as well as Haitian, United Nations
and international officials to assess the situation and facili-
tate follow-on U.S. military support.
Immediate response activities included:
* At first light Jan. 13, a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter
evacuated four critically injured U.S. Embassy staff to Naval
Station Guantanamo, Cuba, hospital for further treatment.
* Elements of the U.S. Air Force 1st Special Operations
Wing deployed Jan. 13 to the international airport at Port
au Prince, Haiti, to provide air traffic control capability and
airfield operations.
* A Jacksonville-based Navy P-3 Orion aircraft from
the VP-26 detachment at Cooperative Security Location in

President Barack Obama said Jan. 14 he made helping
Haiti in the wake of a crippling, 7.0 magnitude earthquake
the top priority of every U.S. government agency. Speaking
from the White House, Obama called the Jan. 12 quake
an unimaginable tragedy and said the United States has
launched "a swift, coordinated and aggressive effort" to help.


* The aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) arrived
off the coast of Haiti Jan. 15 to render airlift assistance with
its embarked SH-60F and HH-60H Seahawk helicopters of
the HS-15 "Red Lions." While enroute, the carrier added to
its airlift capability by receiving 19 helicopters and support
equipment from five different East Coast Navy Seahawk
squadrons.
* Along with Vinson, USS Bataan (LHD 5) embarked with
Marines from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU
22). USS Fort McHenry (LSD 43) and USS Carter Hall
(LSD 50) are also underway.

ation and is working with the U.S. State Department, U.S.
A.'.n.y for International Development and the Office of U.S.
Foreign Disaster Assistance and international agencies to
respond to this crisis.
SOUTHCOM is well versed at providing humanitarian
assistance in the region. Since 2005, the command has led
U.S. military support to 14 major relief missions, including
assistance to Haiti in September 2008. During that mission,
U.S. military forces from USS Kearsarge and other units
airlifted 3.3 million pounds of aid to communities that were
devastated by a succession of major storms.

Scorby continued, "As the nation and the
world recognize President Barack Obama
as the 44th president of the United States
this year, we can see that Dr. King's dream
is a reality."
Guest speaker NAS Jacksonville
Command Chaplin (Cmdr.) Gerald Felder
enthusiastically delivered his speech
entitled, "Keeping the Dream alive."
Referencing his experiences in his home-
town of Birmingham, Ala., Felder brought
to life the ideas set forth by Dr. King. With
passion and proclamation, Felder gained
the audience's attention, and even gar-
nered shouts of "amen," from within the
pews.
Felder continued, "Dr. King's words were
powerfully stirring for all those who heard
them. They provided hope and vision for
all people, dedicated to justice and equali-
ty. Though the dreamer has been silenced,
I proclaim with absolute assuredness that
the dream is still alive," declared Felder.
"We, as a nation, cannot be satisfied
until we have reached that Promised Land
- that land where everyone is judged by
their character rather than by their race,
national origin or creed."
"As an American, this is a powerful
event for me because we are remembering
a man who was not only a spiritual man,
but a man who sacrificed himself will-
ingly to create unity among all races. We
must stand up and stand tall realizing that
when we stand, we stand upon the backs of
those who came before us. They sacrificed
for us. They sacrificed so we could stand
in a new place, do new things and create a
new order," said Felder.
He challenged everyone to "pick up the

received a standing ovation when he con-
cluded his emotional speech.
The audience was entertained by a
remarkable rendition of Louis Armstrong's
"What a Wonderful World," by MUCM(SW)
James Malmgren. That was followed
by readings of Margina Parker's "I am
Michelle Obama," by 11-year-old Bryce
Goree and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I
Have a Dream," by 14-year-old Yasmine
Goree.
The event concluded with the benedic-
tion by Chaplin (Lt.) Thomas Bingol and
the jazz stylings of Navy Band Southeast.

work through ice and


snow at NAS Fallon

From HS-7

The snow started falling, temperatures dropped to
as low as -210F, and ice accumulated on everything
in sight, but the maintenance department of HS-7
never faltered as it worked through the unfavorable con-
ditions and ensured that aircraft were ready to fly when
the weather improved enough for "Dusty Dogs" aircrew
to take to the air.
In addition to performing at the highest levels of excel-
lence, the maintenance department of HS-7 was able to
overcome the snow, ice, frost and all that Mother Nature
unleashed during the squadron's two-week detachment to
NAS Fallon, Nev.
Countless maintenance personnel worked outside of
their rates to provide a unified effort to fix the numerous
issues brought on by the inclement weather. In one par-
ticular case, AE2 Devere Donnell worked countless hours
with the power plants and airframes division as they
replaced the main gearbox on Dusty 614.
The unwavering devotion to mission accomplishment
demonstrated by HS-7 maintenance personnel resulted
in the Dusty Dogs being the first squadron in Carrier
Air Wing Three to launch and recover aircraft during its
recent Fallon detachment.
The squadron returned from NAS Fallon after a frigid
two-week detachment in support of Carrier Air Wing
Three and Carrier Strike Group Ten. Working in sub-
zero temperatures during the successful completion of
their second Air Wing Fallon in four months, HS-7 dem-

From Staff
The staff of NAS Jacksonville Bachelor Housing were
recently recognized for their outstanding service to
its customers -- first, by earning its place on the
prestigious CEL & Associates "A" List, and followed by
and CEL & Associates 2009 Crystal Award. The team was
one of only 15 installations worldwide to attain the highest
level of bachelor housing customer satisfaction in the U.S.
Navy.
The Navy conducts resident satisfaction surveys annual-
ly to monitor the level of customer satisfaction, a program
that is managed and administered by Commander, Navy
Installations Command. The Crystal Award is bestowed
on the facility that has earned a consolidated service score
of 85 percent with a 20 percent response rate.
NAS Jacksonville Bachelor Housing, led by Manager
Beverly Nix, received a service rating of 90 percent and
an 81 percent response rate. The bachelor housing team
increased their resident satisfaction scores by developing
a weekly in-house indoctrination program that focuses on
establishing a relationship with all new check-ins.
Nix believes that each resident is important and that
she and her staff play an important role in providing a
"home away from home" atmosphere for all who reside in
Bachelor Housing. The staff wishes to thank all of the resi-
dents who participated in the survey process.

Command Fitness Leader

Summit helps Sailors

become and stay fit
By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO F -". ALI


Command fitness leaders
(CFL) from bases around
the southeast region gath-
ered at the NAS Jax Officers'
Club last week for a two-day CFL
Summit to learn about changes
being implemented to the Navy's
Physical Readiness Program.
"We are here to provide continu-
ing education to over 50 CFLs
from the region. We travel to
bases around the world, stopping
at fleet concentrated areas annu-
ally, to provide updates on policy,
fitness and nutrition, as well as
exercise programs to bring back
to the commands. The CFL plays
an important role in assisting
our Sailors stay and become fit
while meeting mission require-
ments. We want to make sure
they have the most current poli-
cies and resources needed to
conduct a safe and effective fit-
ness program," said Lt. Cmdr.
Jennifer Wallinger, Command
Fitness Leader Program manager
at OPNAV N135 in Millington,
Tenn. "Our goal is to provide
information, answer any ques-
tions and gather feedback on the
challenges the CFLs face."
The CFL summit was set up by
Wallinger and Lisa Marrero, also
of OPNAV N135 who worked with
the NAS Jax Morale, Welfare and
Recreation Department to coordi-
nate fitness instructors to assist
with the physical fitness train-
ing at the base gym. Class par-
ticipants were presented with new
ideas on cardio training in con-
fined spaces, tactical training and
special training for Individual
Augmentees (IAs).
The summit also included class-

about recent policy changes,

commented on the summit. "I'm
here to benefit NAS Jax, main-
ly the Fitness Enhancement


Program group because they are
the people we need to focus on to
help them stay in the Navy," he
said. "Administratively-wise, this
summit as really been beneficial
for all of the CFLs. I think with
the new policies , there are a lot
of changes and new things we'll
have to put out to our folks. It's
really good and I think the chang-
es will be for the better."
"I'm here because I'm a new
command fitness leader. I think
this class is fantastic because
I've been in the Navy 20 years


and I'm reaching my end time.
They are changing a lot of the
exercises and making it bet-
ter for the Sailors coming in,"
added LS1 Lara Stachow of
Naval Maintenance Construction
Battalion 14. "It's become much
more pro-active towards educat-
ing our Sailors on proper nutri-
tion and exercise and how not to
hurt yourself. We've gone beyond
the mentality of 'no pain, no gain'
to work smart, get a good body
and work smart, not hard. This
has been very educational."

FRCSE Sailor selected for


Seaman to Admiral program

At sundown on Jan. 13, an Air Force C-17 Globemaster refuels at NAS Jacksonville for its
flight to Tallil Airbase, Iraq. The transport was loaded with more than 40,000 pounds of gear
for the FMP MOCC Alpha "Lightning Riders" assigned to CPRW-11.



Night flight to Iraq

Editor


Twelve members of
Fleet Maritime
Patrol (FMP) Mobile
Operations Communications
Center (MOCC) Detachment
Alpha "Lightning Riders"
departed on their sched-
uled six-month deploy-
ment to Iraq in support of
Commander, Patrol and
Reconnaissance Wing
(CPRW) 11 squadrons in the
Middle East and Southeast
Asia. For some in the
detachment, it is their sec-
ond or third deployment.
More than six large pallets
of gear, including electric
generators and C4I equip-
ment (command, control,
communications, comput-
ers and intelligence), were
loaded aboard an Air Force
C-17 Globemaster transport
near NAS Jacksonville Air
Operations Jan. 13.
"In a nutshell, we brief
and debrief missions involv-
ing P-3 Orion squadrons in
the global war against ter-
rorism," said CWO4 Joseph
Chaput.


An Air Force loadmaster directs the loading of generators
and other equipment aboard a C-17 Globemaster for CPRW-
11 FMP MOCC Alpha, in preparation for its flight to Tallil
Airbase in Iraq.


"The information we ana-
lyze helps in-theater com-
manders to plan, direct,
coordinate and control forces
in the accomplishment of
their missions."
ITC Jason Ramsey said,
"To do our job requires about
40,000 pounds of equip-
ment for mission planning
and mission support. Each
MOCC detachment trav-
els with its own set of gear,
which includes the latest
upgrades to our software


suites.
AWO1 Daley said, "Our
everyday goal is to employ
our C4I systems is to
achieve decision-making
superiority that support
the command and control
of operations involving P-3
Orion squadrons assigned to
CPRW-11."
The Lightning Riders
deployed to Tallil Airbase,
located southeast of
Baghdad near the city of An
Nasiriyah.


Lopez-Arellano of
Fleet Readiness
Center Southeast (FRCSE)
Level II has been selected for
the Seaman to Admiral-21
(STA-21) Commissioning
Program, Supply Corps
Option.
Lopez joined the Navy in
April 2004 looking for finan-
cial security and education-
al opportunities. She was a
single mother of one-year-
old Ambrose, living in San
Bernardino, Calif. with few
prospects. "I had a little kid
and no job," she explained.
In November 2004, she
reported to VP-16 at NAS
Jacksonville. Lopez complet-
ed two six-month deployments
to provide maintenance sup-
port for the P-3C Orion air-
craft before transferring to
FRCSE in March 2009.
Lopez' sister, Marine Corps
1,t Lt. Veronica Sebastian
became an officer through a
similar program, Broadened
Opportunity for Officer
Selection and Training.
Sebastian encouraged her
younger sister to apply for one
of the Navy commissioning
career paths.
Although Lopez earned
an associate's degree in lib-
eral arts from her hometown
community college, she had
doubts. "I sat on the applica-
tion for two years," she said.
"I didn't have the guts to
apply for fear of failure."
The STA-21 selection
results were due out in
October, but she had to wait
another month before receiv-
ing the good news. "You
never know unless you try.
And sure enough, I got picked
up on my first try," Lopez
said.
Although not a logistics

part in Fleet Readiness Center Southeast's Level II Sealed
Instruments Repair Shop. She was selected for the Seaman to
Admiral-21 Commissioning Program, Supply Corps Option
and will be assigned to a Reserve unit while pursuing her
bachelor's degree.


specialist, Lopez applied for
the Supply Corp program
because of the business
aspect: the movement of sup-
plies and people. She said,
"Not only is the Navy going
to train, me but also provide
me with experience, so when
I retire I'll get a pretty good
job."
Lopez must first attend
the Naval Science Institute
(NSI) for nine weeks at Naval
Station Newport in Rhode
Island and complete naval sci-
ence courses. She will then
be assigned to the Naval
Reserve Officer Training
Corps Unit at Jacksonville
University.
Her coursework toward
earning a bachelor's degree
in Business Administration
at the University of North
Florida begins this summer.
All courses must be finished
in 36 months to complete the
commissioning program.
While earning her degree,
Lopez will remain on active
duty at her current enlisted
paygrade and will still be
eligible for enlisted advance-
ment while in the program.
In addition, she will receive
up to $10,000 per year to


cover tuition, books and fees.
Lopez is excited about this
unique opportunity. She has
provided shipmates with cop-
ies of her STA-21 package and
warns that completing the
application is cumbersome.
Yet, she urges them to go for
it. "The worst they can say is
no," she said.
AZ2 Sarah Finney was
selected as an alternate for
the Surface Warfare Officer/
Oceanography Option. Also
applying for the first time,
she plans on reapplying if she
doesn't get a coveted spot.
Sailors completing STA-
21 receive a top-notch col-
lege education and become a
commissioned officer in an
Unrestricted Line. The Navy
has combined most of the cur-
rent commissioning paths
under STA-21.
The program was named
by the 25th Chief of Naval
Operations (CNO), Adm.
Jeremy Milk" Boorda, and
the first CNO to have risen
to the distinguished posi-
tion from the enlisted ranks.
He reinvigorated the acces-
sion program renaming it
"Seaman to Admiral" in the
1990s.

Poison


By Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top
One summer when I was a
young cub scout, our troop
went to a day camp in the
mountains of Virginia.
One of the first things the lead-
ers warned us about was poison
ivy. Our leader pointed to a small
plant with three leaves and said,
"This is poison ivy. Don't touch it!
If you do you will itch uncontrol-
lably for days."
A few seconds after the leader
had warned us, I marched for-
ward, reached down and grabbed
the poison ivy leaves with my
bare hands. "What are you doing?
I just told you that is poison ivy!"
shouted my leader. I looked up
at him and calmly replied, "I'm
immune to poison ivy."
I can't remember when I got it
in my mind that I was immune
to poison ivy. I have no idea what
I was thinking. I think I must
have brushed past some plant I
thought to be poison ivy a time
or two with no apparent negative


CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


consequences. So maybe my mind
concluded that I was immune.
I have no doubt that I came to
that conclusion because I wanted
to, not because it was logical. I
thought I was different and some-
how stronger.
I'm sure that you have already
guessed what happened to me at
scout camp. Shortly after touch-
ing the poison ivy I scratched my
cheek. As the day went on I found
myself scratching my cheek more
and more. By the time I arrived at
home I had a terrible rash on my
face. So much for immunity!
As silly as this story may seem,
it happens on a regular basis with
all of us. We are surrounded by
warnings about negative conse-
quences associated with risky
behavior. But the warnings often
go unheeded.
On the back of cigarette car-


Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top
tons, large block letters warn of
cancer and other dangers. I doubt
there is any person who smokes
that is unaware that the warning
is there, but they choose to ignore
it.


Young sailors and marines go
through hours of training every
year to learn of all the negative
consequences alcohol can have
on their personal lives and their
career. Yet still, thousands are
having relationships or careers
destroyed by it.
Marriages are destroyed
because people foolishly believe
that they can be unfaithful "just
this once" without negative conse-
quence.
Others will ignore the counsel
of friends and family and gam-
ble with large amounts of money,
completely sure that they have
found a secret method with which
they alone cannot lose. We all
have our own little guilty and
self-destructive indulgences.
The amazing thing is that
those who are in these types of
situations know fully of the conse-


quences their behavior can create.
They just think they are exempt.
I knew as a young boy that
poison ivy really was bad. I just
didn't think it was bad for me.
Everyone thinks they are the
exception. Nobody says, "I want to
be an alcoholic or druggie when I
grow up." or "I hope I can marry
somebody who will beat me."
But unfortunately many choose
to ignore the warning signs of
where the path they are on is
leading. Their own self-serving
"logic" tells them they are the
exception.
What is the poison ivy you are
handling or thinking of handling
in your life?
Stop and really think about
what you are doing. The next
time you decide to participate in
risky behavior, and you are about
to ignore a warning, I pray that
you will picture your face covered
with poison ivy rash.
Then I hope you will remember
how foolish it is to think that you
are immune.

New Navy Working


Uniforms announced

From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs
wo new Navy Working Uniforms (NWU) will hit the
fleet in fiscal year 2011.
The first, NWU Type II, a desert digital camou-
flage uniform of four colors with the anchor, Constitution
and eagle (ACE) logo embedded in the print, will be worn
by special warfare operators and Sailors who support them
during deployment and deployment training exercises.
"The desert camouflage uniform is not going away," said
Capt. Vince Drouillard, branch head within Navy's person-
nel, plans and policy division. "Sailors, other than Navy
special warfare operators and supporting Sailors, will con-
tinue to wear the current tricolor desert camouflage utility
uniform in desert environments when issued by authoriz-
ing commands."
The second, NWU Type III, is a woodland digital cam-
ouflage uniform that also has four colors and the ACE logo
embedded in the print. It will be the standard camouflage
uniform worn in non-desert environments and stateside.
Both uniforms, announced in NAVADMIN 374/09, are
organizational clothing provided to Sailors by commands
authorized to issue them.
The unisex uniforms will begin conformance testing
to validate design, fit and wear later in fiscal year 2010.
Fleet implementation is expected to begin in late 2011
with deploying combat and direct command support com-
mands and units receiving priority in the distribution
process.
Both new uniforms have an authorized matching pattern
Gortex parka with a removable fleece liner. Sailors can get
complete information on the new NWU Type II and Type
III uniforms in NAVADMIN 374/09 available at www.npc.
navy.mil.

AMVETS representatives




visit World War II veteran
From AM VETS I


On Dec. 30, AMVETS repre-
sentatives from the NAS
Jacksonville office, David
Sanders and Natalie Reed, visited
Elmer King who celebrated his 86th
birthday. King is a World War II
(WWII) veteran who fought in the
Battle of the Bulge in Germany.
"Our office was contacted by Mr.
King's sister from Maryland who had
a made a donation to AMVETS. She
found out we had an office at NAS
Jacksonville and called us to see if we
would stop by and visit her brother to
wish him a happy birthday - because
she could not make the trip and he
has no other family in the area," said
Sanders.
Sanders and Reed picked up some
balloons and a small cake (with one
candle) and headed out to visit the
WWII veteran.
"He was so surprised! We took pic-
tures and sang Happy Birthday to
him. Mr. King told us about his tour
in Germany. He also informed us
that after Germany surrendered, the
Army put him on a troop ship and
sent him through the Suez Canal to
the Pacific Theater," said Sanders.
"He said his biggest accomplish-
ment is being an ordained minister.

David Sanders (right) and Natalie Reed of the AMVETS office at NAS Jacksonville
visit with World War II veteran Elmer King in December. The veteran turned 86 on
Dec. 30.


He was a preacher for 14 years in
a small church in Jacksonville. His
wife, whom he loved and misses,
passed away some years ago and now
with his age and health catching up
with him, he is living in a rehabilita-


tion center."
After the hour-long visit, Sanders
and Reed bid him goodbye, happy to
have spent some quality time and
brought some cheer to this WWII vet-
eran.


Haiti needs our help


By Beth Wilson
Special Contributor


As I was putting the finishing
touches on my column for this
week, a news alert crossed my
screen. "Massive quake hits Haiti."
My heart skipped a beat because,
in May 2009, I had the privilege of
embarking with USNS Comfort on
its humanitarian mission to sever-
al countries in the Caribbean. Haiti
was one of the ship's port calls.
One of the purposes of this humani-
tarian mission was to develop and
strengthen relationships with govern-
ments in these areas so as to have in
place relationships and procedures
to facilitate assistance in just such a
crisis as this.
While Comfort was in Haiti medi-
cal staff held clinics for citizens and
the Seabees completed a construction
project at an orphanage. My thoughts
immediately went to this orphanage,
the wonderful staff and beautiful chil-
dren. I am awaiting news on their
welfare.
Haiti is an incredibly poor country.
Prior to this earthquake, the nation
had very poor infrastructure and ser-
vices for its citizenry. For instance, I
read an account that the total num-
ber of hospital beds in the Port Au
Prince area numbered roughly 1,000.
One hospital is reportedly destroyed
in the earthquake. Haiti is a country
in crisis and in need of support and
assistance.


SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


Prior to my embed experience
I would have listened to this news
report and felt bad for the citizens
of Haiti. Now, however, I cannot lis-
ten dispassionately. Haiti is real to
me. It is impossible for me to express
adequately how very, very rich even
our most impoverished citizens are in
comparison to the average citizen of
this island country. The crew of the
Comfort who spent time in Haiti were
deeply affected by the abject pover-
ty they encountered so close to our
shores.
The earthquake not only devastated
homes and businesses but even those
organizations in country positioned
to respond to disaster were also
damaged. The presidential palace,
the parliament building, the United
Nations building, the Red Cross
building and many others were also
damaged or destroyed which will fur-
ther hamper and complicate recovery
efforts.
Haiti will need support from the
international community to recover.
Our nation, including the resourc-
es of our Navy, is mobilizing to sup-
port Haiti. The USS Carl Vinson is
enroute as I write this and Navy air-
craft are already filled with medical
supplies.
I ask you to join me in helping the
citizens of Haiti. There are many


organizations and ways to help.
Text 90999 from your cell phone
to donate $10 to the Red Cross
Emergency Response. This $10 dona-
tion will be added to your cell phone
bill.
Visit http://redcross.org for addi-
tional information on ways to support
and donate to the Red Cross emer-
gency response efforts.
Doctors Without Borders (www.doc-
torswithoutborders.org) is mobilized
to care for the injured.
Donate to the Salvation Army,
which has mobilized disaster
response teams to work with local
chapters, to send donated items to the
disaster area. The Salvation Army's
presence in Haiti includes a school
and clinic. Both sustained damage,
but the Salvation Army is already
mobilized and their response team
is in action. You can donate funds at
www.salvationarmy.org. Click on the
disaster relief fund. Be sure to note
that you want your donation to go to
the Haiti Relief Fund. You can also
drop off clothing and other supplies to
your local Salvation Army chapter for
shipping to Haiti.
Thank you for your prayers and
concern for the people of Haiti. Even
the smallest gift from all of us will
add up to real, tangible help for
many.

This is ridiculous! Week
after week I run ads for
different departments in
my organization & get
limited response. There
are no gimmicks, no

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

investigate this opportu-
nity. This week I'm hir-
