DoD pest


managers fight


natural enemies
By Clark Pierce
Editor

Military entomologists, environmentalists and
public health experts from around the world
met at NAS Jacksonville Feb. 8-12 to share
their knowledge about identification and control of
vector-borne diseases that threaten the lives of mili-
tary and civilian personnel.
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr., commanding officer of NAS
Jacksonville, welcomed attendees. "With more than
100 tenant commands on board our station, I under-
stand the importance of pest management - especially
when our people and aircraft are deployed overseas. I
also appreciate that military entomologists are evalu-
ating and planning programs as part of Operation
Unified Response, so that vector-borne disease does
not become a threat in Haiti."
"The world of bugs and invasive species is important
to the Department of Defense (DoD). Infectious and
parasitic diseases transmitted by insects and other
creatures are a constant threat to military readiness,"
said Capt. Stanton Cope, director, Armed Forces Pest
Management Board (AFPMB), headquartered in
Washington D.C.
"We support mission readiness by developing pre-
ventive measures to control pests and disease vectors
in ways that avert future pollution problems through
the use of non-chemical or least-toxic chemical tech-
niques," said Cope.
A 'vector' is an organism that carries and transmits
parasitic disease or infection to other organisms. For
example, mosquitoes are the vector for malaria, ticks
are the vector for Lyme disease, and rodents and fleas
are vectors for bubonic plague.
The AFPMB recommends policy, provides guidance
and coordinates the exchange of information on all
matters related to pest management throughout the
DoD. The AFPMB mission is to ensure that environ-
mentally sound and effective programs are present
to prevent pests and disease vectors from adversely
affecting DoD operations.
Each day was filled with classroom sessions, demon-
strations and updates.
"It's great to meet and talk shop with so many pro-
fessional peers in the vector-control profession," said
Lt. Cmdr. Pete Obenauer of the U.S. Naval Medical
Research Unit No. 3 in Cairo, Egypt. "We conduct
research and surveillance to support military person-
nel deployed to Africa, the Middle East and Southwest
Asia. About 75 percent of our research deals with
sand flies, with most of remainder going to stud-
ies of Rift Valley fever (a livestock virus that can be
passed to humans) and malaria in parts of Kenya and
Djibouti."
One highlight of the workshop was a large example
of operational pest management - a C-130H2 Hercules
aircraft outfitted for aerial spraying.
DoD Entomologist Maj. Mark Breidenbaugh is a
scientific technical advisor and certified applicator
assigned to the USAF Reserve 757th Airlift Squadron
based in Youngstown, Ohio. "We help manage insects
of medical importance by deploying to an area where
troops are operating with a threat of disease. Our
C-130 crew is specially qualified to safely apply chemi-
cals by flying at low levels -usually at an altitude of
just 100 feet.

Like a fish out of water... on ice


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


Last week, I went to our local ice
rink for the first time in a year.
When I opened the door, I was
greeted by a familiar smell - that dry,
frozen, with a hint of ammonia smell
particular to indoor ice rinks. It filled
my olfactory nerves and brought back
memories of the previous winter. We
had just moved to Maine from Florida
- where we lived for more than a
decade. In fact, our three boys had
never been north of Washington, D.C.
It didn't take long for me to recog-
nize that the ice hockey culture is par-
ticular to the northeast. Sure, kids in
the south play ice hockey on occasion,
but baseball, football, soccer and even
surfing, have a bigger following than
hockey.
My sons, through lack of exposure,
knew next to nothing about hock-
ey. But they soon heard about it at
their new school. Nearly all of their
friends eagerly anticipated the ice
rink opening in October. This con-
fused my older boys (Lindell was only
18 months old), for whom the idea of a
"winter sport" was foreign to them
Owen, who was 5 at the time, par-
ticularly wanted to give this new
thing called ice hockey a try. Ford
(then 7) was eventually convinced as
well.
"Do you think it's weird to sign my
kids up for ice hockey if they've never
played," I asked my friend Steph.
"Might as well just throw them in,"
she said. If I remember correctly, she
was smiling.
The next day, my husband, Dustin,
and I took Ford and Owen shop-
ping for all the gear they would need

for ice hockey. "A life of ice hockey"
turns out to be quite expensive. But
the boys were pumped about their
new sport, and Dustin and I were
excited to be aspiring ice hockey par-
ents. Interestingly, none of us gave
any thought to the fact that the boys
would actually need to ice skate in
order to play ice hockey.
A couple nights later, we took the
boys to the ice rink for their first prac-
tice. Luckily, Steph and Owen's former
soccer coach were there - because I
hadn't the first clue about how to get
the gear on.
Owen's soccer coach laced up one
boy's skate while Steph stuffed the
other boy's legs into shin pads. I
watched nervously as my boys were
slowly swallowed up by gear and pad-
ding that made them look like stuffed
bears with helmets.
"So, you ready for this," I asked
them after they were dressed.
"Ready," they said.
And then Ford said, "Shouldn't I
know how to ice skate, Mom?"
I looked around the rink and spot-
ted a group of boys and girls skating
circles around one another with ease.
"Oh, you'll be fine," I said. "It will
be just like riding a bike."
That last bit made no sense at all
and the worried look on my boys' faces
proved that it was no comfort either.
I opened the half-door, half-window
to the rink and helped the boys step
onto the ice. Their skates wobbled
beneath them, bending their legs in
ways that didn't seem possible.


"Could you give me a push, Mom,"
Ford asked because he had already
dug the blade of his skate into the ice
and couldn't move.
I pushed Ford with my right hand
and Owen with my left. They slid
across the ice, their hockey sticks
pointing straight out from their sides
like a dangerous weapon. Ford leaned
back to keep his balance, and that
caused his skates to slip, one by one,
out from under him, until he was flat
on his back. Owen fell to his knees -
and then through the force of momen-
tum - forward onto his belly, and he
spun across the ice like a dust mop.
For the next hour, I chewed my
nails as the boys spent a a lot of time
making good use of their padding,
and the patient coaches tried to teach
them how to skate.
It turns out that playing ice hockey
is nothing at all like riding a bike.
Indeed, it is like nothing my boys
have ever encountered before. They
grew frustrated and embarrassed.
Despite our "no quitting" rule, Dustin
and I let the boys save face and with-
draw from ice hockey. It wasn't fair of
me to thrust them into something so
new, I reasoned. "And they are still
adjusting to the move," I said.
Maybe the experience has scarred
them, though, because just the other
day, Owen tried to maintain his
"northerner-ess" by proclaiming to a
friend, "I like to ice skate. Just not
with skates ... or padding or a stick."
"Maybe not even with ice," Ford
added.


Hey, MoneyChic:
I heard there are big chang-
es coming to my credit card in
February. Are these changes to pro-
tect me or new changes for them to
make more money off of my debts?
MoneyChic says: The new
rules for credit card issuers go
into effect Feb. 22. These rules
will be more beneficial to consum-
ers. If your credit card company
plans to increase your interest
rate, they must let you know 45
days in advance.They also are to
give you the option to cancel your
card before the changes take effect.
Keep in mind, if you cancel your
card they have the legal option to
close your account and increase
your monthly minimum payment.
(Do note that if you have a variable
rate and the index goes up, they do
not have to provide notice of a rate
change.) This is why it's important
to know exactly what details are
associated with your card. The fea-
ture that I'm most excited about is
the information on how long it will
take you to pay off your balance


if you only make minimum pay-
ments. It will also tell how much
you would need to pay each month
in order to pay off your balance in
three years. This highlights the
vast difference between paying the
minimum versus knocking out the
debt quickly.
I also like the new rule prevent-
ing card companies from increasing
your interest rate for the first 12
months, unless it specifically states
your rate is introductory or you are
more than two months behind in
making a payment. If companies do
raise your rate, they can only apply
the rate change to "new" charges.
Your old rate will apply to any pre-
vious balances.
If you are under 21, you will
need to show that you are able to
make payments in order to open an
account. How companies will deter-
mine a person's ability to repay is
something I'm keeping my eye on.
Nonetheless, these changes offer
more protection and education for
consumers.
That's my two cents worth.

The angel boat



gets due respect


By Jose Irazuzta, M.D.
Project HOPE volunteer


A after seven straight work-
ing days aboard USNS
Comfort (T-AH 20), I took
a break and went ashore.
Point Killick is a small enclave
that the Haitian Coast Guard
was sharing with a group from
Colombia that had set up a 20-bed
hospital, UN vehicles, and a U.S.
medical clinic.
A lot of the activity centered
around the movement of sup-
plies out to the Comfort. There
is a short dock where crates of
supplies and water bottles were
being moved, and some vans were
waiting to be unloaded. A busy
lieutenant, acting as "traffic con-
troller," was directing people and
vehicles.
This business of having
fresh water consumes a lot of
resources. Later on, two of the
top brass from the U.S. Navy
ships Comfort and Gunston Hall
(LSD 44), arrived in separate
boats with a small entourage of
photographers and people "play-
ing host" and showing off the


place.
The top brass seemed very
interested in one particular tent,
it was clearly set aside, and there
was no movement of people in or
out. Since it was really hot and
humid, I thought the tent may
have had an air conditioner and
refreshments.
Shortly after they entered,
a soldier came out in a hurry,
grabbed a chair and went back
inside -which seemed odd, since
there were two top brass.
In the meantime, a white boat
bearing a red cross from the
Comfort was approaching the
dock. Curiously, it was not loaded
with people or boxes. The lieuten-
ant gave orders to rapidly clear
the dock.
As the top brass emerged from
the tent, all loading and unload-
ing activities ceased. Another
group was hurriedly bringing a
large, white, polygonal wooden
box into the tent that had just
been inspected by the top brass.
Time stood still.
"What is going on?" I asked.
Someone told me an "angel boat"
is arriving.

USNS Comfort expands care capability to receive, transfer patients


By MC3 Timothy Wilson
USNS Comfort Public Affairs


Personnel from USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) scouted pos-
sible helicopter landing zones near Cange, Haiti Feb.
8 that would expand the hospital ship's capability
to transfer and receive patients injured in the earthquake
that left hundreds of thousands of Haitians injured or dead.
Currently, Comfort is operating in concert with 16 medi-
cal facilities near functional landing zones throughout the
Caribbean nation in an effort to maximize efficient move-
ment of patients.
This also allows the ship's staff to admit new, more
urgent cases.


Many of these sites have been open since Jan. 24 screen-
ing new patients and providing after care for those who
have been discharged but still need care. Before any site
is approved for operation, a team of experts must ensure
that there is a safe landing zone nearby, that there is an
adequate route from an already established medical facility
to the landing zone, and that the medical facility has the
capability to meet the long-term aftercare needs of patients
treated aboard Comfort.
Ti,.,Ly, we are evaluating the medical and surgical capa-
bilities of Cange Hospital," said Cmdr. Zsolt Stockinger, a
trauma care surgeon and on-site commander for assessing
the hospital. "We are not going to operate on patients and
just put them on the street."


While Stockinger met with medical representatives to
assess their post-operative care capabilities, Lt. Tracy
Parsons, air operations officer for Task Group 48 embarked
aboard Comfort.
"My goal is to evaluate landing zones to make certain we
can safely transfer patients," Parsons said.
Since Jan. 21, Comfort's staff has treated 741 patients
and performed 644 surgeries. More than 500 of these
patients have already been discharged back to their homes
or to sites like the one at Cange - a remote village located
on the central plateau of Haiti, east of Port-au-Prince.
Its general hospital is an American-funded organiza-
tion administered by the non-governmental organization
Partners in Health.

PESTS: 757th Airlift


Squadron on standby


for Haiti mosquito


mitigation mission

From Page 1


To train for this mission, we work domestically with fed-
eral installations. In fact, our aircraft operate from NAS
Jacksonville a couple of times each year to spray for mos-
quitoes and biting midges (no-see-ums) on the property of
Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga."
He continued, "After Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf
Coast in 2005, the 757th flew six weeks of anti-mosquito
missions to reduce the possibility of blood borne diseases.
Right now, we're on standby for Haiti disaster response."
The 757th squadron is also the DoD training center for
the only EPA-approved federal aerial application pest con-
trol certification course.
Breidenbaugh added that his crew conducts operational
testing of new pesticides, equipment and techniques. "We
also provide consultation services concerning aerial appli-
cations to all DoD organizations for routine, emergency
and contingency projects."
The 757th operates eight C-130H2 aircraft modified with
2,000-gallon tanks for aerial spraying.
In 2000, the squadron began applying a biological con-
trol agent against mosquito larvae at Cherry Point Marine
Corps Air Station, N.C. that stops production of adult
mosquitoes. The unit also applies herbicide near Mountain
Home AFB, Idaho to control Cheatgrass, an invasive weed
originally from the Mediterranean.
Cope added, "A Bravo Zulu goes out to Cmdr. George
Schoeler of Navy Entomology Center of Excellence at NAS
Jacksonville (NECE Jax) for the expertise and assistance
his team provided to AFPMB staff in organizing this
workshop."
NECE Jax reports to Navy and Marine Corps Public
Health Center, Portsmouth, Va. The unit has helped
ensure the readiness of our military forces since 1949 by
providing technical services and expert training in reduc-
ing the risk of diseases transmitted by insects and other
arthropods.
NECE Jax supports the global war on terror by sup-
plying medical entomologists and preventive medicine
technicians for Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi
Freedom. NECE Jax also participates in disaster relief
operations such as Operation Unified Assistance in the
Philippines, Bangladesh, Indonesia and East Timor to
minimize the risk of vector-borne disease to U.S. person-
nel, as well as civilian populations.

Test pilots Cmdr. Joseph Buckler (FRCSE) and Lt. Cmdr. Rick Foster (VX-30 "Bloodhounds") take off from NAS Jacksonville for their flight to Point Mugu, Calif., the home base of this NP-3D
"Billboard" Orion, known for its distinctive radar panel atop the fuselage.


FRCSE


REWORKS


UNIQUE


P-3 ORION

By Marsha Childs
FRCSE Public Affairs
Despite setbacks during
an extensive repair cycle,
Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast (FRCSE) returned
a heavily modified NP-3D
"Billboard" Orion to the Fleet
Jan. 15.
The Naval Weapons Test
Squadron (VX) 30, based in
Point Mugu, Calif., took receipt
of the specialized aircraft - with
its distinctive radar panel - built
by Lockheed in 1963 and modi-
fied in 1979 with Extended Area
Test System (EATS) radar. The
"Bloodhounds" fly the only two
"Billboards" in the Fleet.
The aircraft's over-the-horizon
telemetry assists the squadron
with its vital mission of clearing
the Pacific Missile Test Range,
the Department of Defense's larg-
est overwater missile test range
with 36,000 square miles of con-
trolled sea and airspace.
The Billboard's phased array
antenna is capable of receiv-
ing data from various locations
throughout the Pacific and provid-
ing vital information to tactical
users and sea and shore command


centers.
The aircraft's sophisticated
telemetry system is used to locate
and track targets for weapons
testing and missile-range clear-
ance. Its distinctive radar panel,
approximately six feet high and
12 feet long, sits atop the fuselage
just forward of the vertical stabi-
lizer.
FRCSE inducted the 46-year-
old aircraft for phased depot
maintenance in September 2006.
Artisans initially estimated the
project would take about 30,000
man-hours to inspect and repair.
Non-Destructive Inspection
(NDI) technicians conducted
a special structural inspection,
which led to additional NDI test-
ing revealing stress corrosion
cracks in seven metal planks.
These planks comprise the outer
wing and run from the fuselage to
the wingtip.
Planned Maintenance Interval
Program Manager Clark
Huffman oversaw the sustain-
ment action to extend the air-
craft's service life.
"The more we peeled the onion,
the greater the scope of repair,"
he said. "Sometimes when you're
repairing one failed part, you
expose adjacent parts that would
not have been inspected or
repaired, due to limited access."
Former first-line supervisor
Clinton Batten and his team were
immediately faced with challeng-
es. Batten explained, "Aging air-
craft require extensive measures.
There were no structural repair
manual references that covered
this kind of extended damage."
Another challenge dealt with


VX-30 test pilot Lt. Cmdr. Rick Foster, in the cockpit of the NP-3D "Billboard" Orion, prepares for a func-
tional flight check Dec. 8. The specialized aircraft with its over-the-horizon telemetry system is used by the
"Bloodhounds" to clear the Pacific Missile Test Range off the coast of California.


parts availability. "When there
are no parts on the shelves, you
have to make them," said Batten.
A commercial vendor fabricated
seven wing planks, which took
more than 18 months.
FRCSE artisans continued the
work out of sequence, a neces-
sary but inefficient way to execute
repairs. Sheet metal mechanics
repaired extensive corrosion dam-
age using numerous plank patch-
es, the largest covering 21 square
feet.


When FRCSE returned the
aircraft to VX-30, artisans had
expended more than 65,000 man-
hours. The lengthy rework not
only had a severe impact on the
aircraft's turnaround time but
also hindered progress on other
P-3 aircraft undergoing phased
maintenance at the facility.
FRCSE P-3 Project Officer
Cmdr. Joseph Buckler and VX-30
test pilot Lt. Cmdr. Rick Foster
flew the aircraft to Point Mugu,
Calif.


Foster said, "We are the only
squadron that operates this air-
craft. We use them for in-flight
telemetry for the Tomahawk and
other long-range missiles."
Until the Navy brings in a new
generation of aircraft, the older
models must be maintained to
support the maritime mission.
With only two Billboards serv-
ing the Fleet, the successful
return of this asset greatly con-
tributes to VX-30's mission suc-
cess.


FRCSE inducted the NP-3D "Billboard" Orion
for repairs to extend the service life of this
two-of-a-kind aircraft. Unlike a standard P-3C
Orion, the Billboard is equipped with phased
array antenna, over-the-horizon telemetry and
other specialized capabilities.


An NP-3D Orion "Billboard" aircraft, one of only two in the Navy's Fleet, is towed on the
tarmac from the maintenance hangar to the paint hangar in December 2009.

flights prior

FRCSE encountered many challenges during the total rework of the 46-year-old "Billboard."
Artisans must maintain older aircraft until the Navy brings in new replacements to the fleet.
Here, the aircraft is on jackstands to allow hydraulic testing of the landing gear.

Military


Saves Week

Get a firm grip

on financial future

From staff


Ly"jne of the Navy's major
5 goals," according to
Carolyn McCorvey, direc-
tor of NAS Jacksonville Fleet and
Family Support Center (FFSC), "Is
to encourage our Sailors and Marines
to make a long-term commitment for
their personal financial readiness."
She says that Military Saves Week
(Feb. 21-28) is a great time to learn
about free financial tools and resourc-
es that can put you on a solid finan-
cial footing.
"When people get serious about
reducing debt and building wealth,
they become part of a culture that
promotes both individual and fam-
ily financial fitness," explained
McCorvey.
Military Saves is a national, social
marketing campaign to persuade
military families to save money and
reduce debt. It is co-sponsored by
Consumer Federation of America,
a nonprofit organization, and the
Department of Defense Financial
Readiness Campaign, and is support-
ed in part by the FINRA Investor
Education Foundation. No one from
Military Saves will ever try to sell you
anything.
FFSC Financial Special-ist Rugus
Bundrige said the campaign's life-
blood is in its partners - organiza-
tions that see the value in empow-
ering people to become financially
stable through saving, debt reduction

and wealth building over time.
"In a saving community, people
encourage each other to save money
regularly and habitually. They dis-
courage excessive spending on non-
necessities," said Bundrige.
"Social marketing is a process that
takes time. This is not a quick fix, a
specific savings program, or a one-
time promotional campaign. It is a
long-term, on-going effort to make
real change in our nation's future."
FFSC plays a vital role in Military
Saves Week by providing financial
education workshops, services and
resources regarding financial plan-
ning and wealth building.

CDC director honored with prestigious award

By Kaylee LaRocque
Deputy Public Affairs Officer


N AS Jax Child
Development Center
(CDC) Director
Mary Grenier was selected
as the Commander, Navy
Installations Command
(CNIC) Navy CDC Director
of the Year. She was pre-
sented the prestigious
award Jan. 28 during the
Navy and Air Force Joint
Child and Youth Conference
in Dallas.
"I feel very honored that
someone felt so highly of my
work to nominate me for
this award. We go about our
daily duties trying to do the
best thing for children, fam-
ilies and staff and it's nice
to know that someone has
noticed what you are doing,"
said Grenier.
Grenier was nominated
by one of her staff members
who sent it to the regional
child and youth program
manager. After review at
the regional level, the pack-
age was forwarded to CNIC
for consideration.
"I didn't even know I had
been nominated, so I was
completely taken by sur-
prise when my name was
announced," Grenier contin-
ued.
As CDC director since
July 2005, Grenier pri-
marily focuses on the
CDC but also oversees the
entire Child and Youth
Program at NAS Jax. This
included the Youth and
School Age Care Program,
Child Development Home
Program, U.S. Department
of Agriculture Food
Program, School Liaison
Officer Program and the
Parents As Teachers -
Heroes at Home Program.
"We have about 100
employees so you can imag-
ine how busy we stay here.

Jax Child Development Center Director Mary Grenier display their awards at the Navy and
Air Force Joint Child and Youth Conference Jan. 28.


Our goal is to provide ser-
vices to children and fami-
lies," explained Grenier.
"Military children face
more than the usual chal-
lenges growing up, such as
moving every few years and
establishing new friend-
ships while worrying about
family members who have
been deployed. Our pro-
grams provide children
and families with trusted
programs and services that
assist in coping with these
challenges."
Grenier, grew up in an
Army family and spent
much of her childhood in
Germany. When her par-
ents finally settled in Ohio,
she completed her degree in
Early Childhood Education
at Kent State University.
"When I graduated from
college in 1984, there were
no teaching jobs avail-
able," she said. "I had
always wanted to go back
to Germany, so I joined the
Army and ended up back
there for about three years."


The next chapter of her
life took her to Hawaii as
a former military spouse.
Once settled, Grenier decid-
ed it was time to find a job
in the field she was educat-
ed in. "I started teaching
preschool there for about
a year. Then, in 1989, the
Military Childcare Act was
enacted mandating that
all military childcare cen-
ters hire training and cur-
riculum specialists. I just
happened to have an early
childhood degree that few
people had, so I was hired,"
Grenier explained.
When her former husband
left the military, the family
moved to Ohio to live with
her parents.
"I was on leave with-
out pay from my civil ser-
vice job and was looking
for another position. A job
came open at NS Mayport
for a training and curricu-
lum specialist, so I applied
and got the job," she contin-
ued. "Eventually, I was pro-
moted to program adminis-


trator and the position title
was later changed to CDC


director."
"I have a lot of experi-
ence in this field but I am
always willing to learn and
educate myself about new
trends. I value the people
who work for us in CYP and


feel they need to be praised
highly for their work with
children. I look forward to
working many more years
at NAS Jax," Grenier con-
cluded.

COY: NAS Jax recognizes civilian honorees


From Page 1


so many different aspects.
We have golf, bowling, the
marina, childcare -there is
something different going
on every day, so it makes
it very interesting," said
McCool.
"And of course we have an
excellent staff and manag-
ers. I couldn't do what I do
without them. A lot of peo-
ple think we have one of the
better MWR programs here
and that's because we have
such a great staff and such
tremendous support from
the skipper and XO and
all the other commands,"
he added. "Coming from a
sports background, it's all
about the team and we have
a great team here."
A native of Cleveland,
Miss., McCool grew up on a
college campus because his
father was a college football
coach. "I've been around
sports all my life," he said.
After earning a
Bachelor's degree from
Delta State University in
physical education and rec-
reation, McCool coached
football and basketball.
From there, he quickly
transitioned into the golf
business.
"I entered the PGA
Apprentice program and
got my PGA card in 1984
and am a life member. I've
worked at private golf clubs,
and the city of Meridian
running their golf opera-
tions at NAS Meridian as
golf director."
McCool and his wife,
Claire, have three daugh-
ters. In his free time he
enjoys playing golf and rid-
ing his bicycle.
As for the future, he
plans to continue working
at NAS Jax for many years
to come. "I love doing what
I do. I think it's great that
we as civilians get to pro-
vide a service to our active


duty members, their fami-
lies and retirees. The mili-
tary, hands down, are the
best customers in the world.
They always seem to appre-
ciate what we do," he con-
tinued.
Archer's first reaction at
being selected as Junior
Civilian of the Year was
simply, "Wow!"
"I think what this has
shown me is that people are
our number one resource.
And if helping people yields
this kind of result, how
powerful. And the second
thing I thought was that
teamwork works," she said.
"I learned this acronym
in the Navy - team stands
for 'together everyone
achieves more.' And that's
exactly what happened.
By receiving this honor, it
helps profile our center and
what we do here," she con-
tinued.
Archer, an employee
at FFSC for the past two
years, was instrumental in
developing several new pro-
grams at the center includ-
ing the Youth Sponsorship
program after interacting
with NAS Brunswick fam-
ilies and realizing youths
were experiencing reloca-
tion anxiety.
She also partnered with
a local middle school and
facilitated life skills work-
shops to military and civil-
ian students involved in the
Adopt-A-School program.
"I'm a working family life
consultant so any family
that comes through the door
with an issue other than
the clinical side, I can help
them. I can help our clients
with sponsorship, help them
move their cars/furniture,
get the kids in school, house
buying, etc.," said Archer.
"I also help with the
Exceptional Family
Member program, teach life
skills classes such as sui-


cide prevention, anger and
stress management and
train ombudsmen. And, I
do a lot of marketing for the
center. I love to empower
people with knowledge and
help our Sailors," Archer
continued.
Archer joined the staff
here after retiring as a den-
tal technician senior chief
with 26 years of naval ser-
vice.
"It's a big change from
what I did in the Navy,
but this is my heartbeat.
I cannot believe I'm work-
ing here. I trained a lot in
the military and was prob-
ably certified in everything
you can get certified in. I
was the first master train-
er dental technician in the
Navy. I love teaching and
helping people," she said
enthusiastically.
In her free time, Archer
has recently earned her
Doctorate degree in theol-
ogy and volunteers with the
Department of Corrections
helping prisoners transition
back into the community.
She is also an intern
chaplain at Shands


Hospital and is working on
her certification for chap-
laincy.
Archer says she could
never do what she does
without her strong faith in
God and the constant sup-
port of her husband of 27
years, Randy.
"He has traveled with me
throughout my career and I
couldn't do it without him. I
also want to thank my chil-
dren, Corey and Rendatta,
granddaughter, Zocha, my
brother, Grant, my sister,
Elaine and nephew, Jeremy
and my spiritual parents
Michael and Connie Smith,"
she added.
"And I'd like to especially
thank my colleagues here
including my supervisor,
director, the CO and XO
and everyone who voted for
me. I also want to thank
the PAO office because they
have been so wonderful get-
ting the word out about our
programs so we can bet-
ter help the families," said
Archer.

NavHosp Jax



announces



Sailors of Year


By Loren Barnes
Naval Hospital Jax Public Affairs
HMl(FMF) Jay
Goronal is Naval
Hospital Jack-
sonville 2009 Sailor of the
Year. This Jacksonville
native has made his mark
as a biomedical repair tech-
nician - both as the lead-
ing petty officer (LPO)
in the hospital's Central
Sterile Supply Resources
Department and while
deployed as LPO of a for-
ward surgical team (FST) in
Afghanistan.
At NH Jax he supervises
the inventory and mainte-
nance of more than 5,000
pieces of medical/dental
equipment valued in excess
of $5.2 million. He took
those same skills with him
to the FST in Afghanistan,
where he performed main-
tenance on 124 pieces of
critical medical equipment
resulting in no equipment
failures and increased qual-
ity of care for the Sailors,
soldiers and coalition forc-
es in support of the War on
Terrorism.
Goronal went beyond
his biomedical techni-
cian skills to use his Fleet
Marine Force (FMF) train-
ing to assist with medical
care - helping with 30 com-
bat casualties, performing
emergency x-ray procedures,
starting intravenous thera-
pies, administering medica-
tions and driving ambulanc-
es.
He volunteered more than
1,100 hours in humanitar-
ian and disasters missions
in nearby towns to distrib-
ute clothes, food, toys and
medications.
His leading chief petty
officer, HMC David Jones,
lauded Goronal's mentoring
and leadership skills that
contribute to his junior per-
sonnel receiving accolades
and awards of their own


while continuing to learn
and advance in their rate.
The NH Jax Core Facility
Junior Sailor of the Year is
HM2(FMF) Andrew Page,
who served as the Patient
Administration Department
Leading Petty Officer
and the Acting Command
Decedent Affairs Officer.
Page said, "It is truly an
honor to be selected as the
JSOY, especially when you
consider the number and
caliber of Sailors that we
have at this command."
HMC Linwood Pulley
said, "Page's leadership/
mentorship efforts have
encouraged many junior
and mid-level Sailors to
take a vested interest in
their career by seeking men-
tor/prot6g6 relations. He
sets the example by always
being the first in the office
and the last to leave. As
the decedent affairs offi-
cer, he assists families with
making final internment
arrangements for deceased
family members/beneficia-
ries," Pulley said.
Page also assisted the
Command Assistance Calls
Officers (CACOs) with 15
assignments and helped
train more than 20 CACOs
in the time-honored tra-
dition of accompanying
remains to their final rest-
ing place.
Page works with Sailors
assigned to the NH Jax
Medical Holding Company,
supporting a fleet of 27
ships ported at NS Mayport.
He helped establish the
"Under My Wing" mentor-
ship program and the "Fleet
for a Day" project, where 12
first-term Sailors spend a
day aboard a naval vessel at
NS Mayport.
The NH Jax Core
Facility Blue Jacket of the
Year is LSSN Christopher
Whitehead who works as

receiving clerk and Defense
Reutilization and Marketing
Office (DRMO) clerk.
Whitehead said, "I'm
honored to be selected and
I hope that other Sailors
are looking up to me as
an example of being dedi-
cated to my job and doing
the best that I can." For
instance, he noted that he
performs duties, such as
watch standing with respon-
sibilities that a second-class
petty officer would normally
stand, and he is active as a
volunteer.
He is responsible for the
receipt, processing and dis-
tribution of more than 7,000
line items of medical/dental
equipment, furnishings and
consumable office supplies
for NH Jax and its outly-
ing Naval Branch Health
Clinics, valued at over
$5 million. His work with
incoming supplies resulted
in zero customer discrepan-
cies in the hospital.
Beyond his regular
duties, Whitehead vol-
unteered to be part of the
NAS Jacksonville Auxiliary
Security Force (ASF) team.
He was cited as a "Top
Gun" and scored the highest
shooting score in his gradu-
ating ASF class.
Often lauded for his

impeccable military appear-
ance, he is a command lead-
er in physical fitness stan-
dards. He even trains with
the Seabees of CBMU-202
where he worked for his con-
struction mechanic certifica-
tion. Whitehead also volun-
teers in the community. For
instance, he has instructed
more than 100 people in
hunting and gun safety pro-
cedures.
Bio-Medical Equipment
Technician HM1(SS/EXW)
Justin Przybyla is Senior
Sailor of the Year for NH
Jacksonville Naval Branch
Health Clinic (NBHC). His
Leading Chief Petty Officer
HMC Elaine Florence
describes him as, "A can-do
Sailor who is the go-to guy
in our command."
Przybyla said, "I am very
honored by my selection. My
main focus is to make sure
those who are entrusted to
me, have the tools for suc-
cess. If I can look at myself
in the mirror at the end of
the day and know I have not
failed anyone, I have done
my job. I want to personal-
ly thank everyone that has
contributed to my success."
Florence lauded Przybyla's
initiative and keen atten-
tion to detail, such as ini-
tiating the repair of dam-

aged equipment that result-
ed in clinic adherence to
American Heart Association
defibrillator standards.
He is also the NBHC Key
West command career coun-
selor, equipment manager,
education and training petty
officer. As the clinic's sole
bio-medical equipment tech-
nician, he repaired, calibrat-
ed and inventoried over 630
pieces of medical and dental
equipment valued in excess
of $6 million.
Przybyla also proved his
leadership while on deploy-
ment with Expeditionary
Medical Force 14, Djibouti,
and Africa. He mentored
14 Sailors resulting in two
Sailors of the Month for the
unit, a 100 percent reten-
tion rate, and a 36 percent
advancement rate. He was
also selected as the chair-
man of the E4 and E5 evalu-
ation ranking board.
HM2(FMF) Mark
Neiderhaus is Junior Sailor
of the Year from Naval
Branch Health Clinic
Jacksonville. He made his
mark while deployed to
Afghanistan, where he
served as the leading petty
officer for Troop Medical
Center (TMC) Camp Arifjan
and as the dental oral dis-
ease risk management pro-


gram coordinator.
His LCPO, HMCS Lester
Wellmaker, said, "A flawless
performer, his trademark
dedication, loyalty and drive
make him indispensable. He
volunteers, priorities and
finishes all assigned tasks
by delivering a first-rate
product every time."
During his deploy-
ment, as LPO, TMC Camp
Arifjan, he was responsible
for 15,000 beneficiaries
and the allocation of new
dental equipment worth
$85,000. Noticing there
was no enlisted advance-
ment program in the camp,
Neiderhaus created one that
eventually had the highest
advancement percentage in
the Navy for that reporting
cycle. He also managed the
command fitness program
and took on the upkeep of 31
dental treatment rooms He
also acted as the assistant
branch safety petty officer.
Neiderhaus's aspirations
for his own career include
higher education and pursu-
ing military specific train-
ing focused on homeland
security and anti-terrorism.
He views his tenure as a
Sailor not as a career but
as a stepping stone for his
ultimate goal in becoming a
medical officer.
HM Jeremy Olds, of
Naval Branch Health Clinic
Mayport Primary Care and
Physical Health Assessment
Clinic is the 2009 Blue
Jacket of the Year.
According to HMCS(SW/
FMF) Robert King, "As a
family practice corpsman,
Olds performs at a petty
officer level and consis-
tently receives high praise
from direct supervisors and
physicians on his quality
of work. Although junior in
our command, Corpsman
Olds has set the example for
others throughout NBHC
Mayport."
That can-do attitude is
evident both at the NBHC
where he manned the front
desk and properly triaged
more than 250 patients in
one day -to his voluntary
six-month deployment to
the detainee facility at NS
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He
was assigned to the feeding
block for detainees who were

Sailor


and wife


save a life

By ET2(SW/AW)
Antonio Valerio
NCTS Jacksonville PAO

Remember the last

time that you were
"volun-told" to attend
CPR and it conflicted with
your schedule or you just
did not want to go? Maybe
you felt that you had
enough life-saving knowl-
edge already - and that
the odds of actually having
to use CPR are about the
same as being struck by
lightning.
Those odds caught up
with a young Jacksonville
couple Feb. 3 when
ET2(SW) David Porter of
Naval Computer and Tele-
communications Station
Jacksonville and his wife,
Sarah, were enjoying a typ-
ical evening at home - when
they received a call for help.
Their 26-year-old
upstairs neighbor, Jamillah
Richardson, said she was
having difficulty breathing.
Sarah, a registered nurse
at Orange Park Medical
Center, and David pro-
ceeded upstairs to check
on her. When they arrived,
Richardson was virtually
unresponsive. The Porters
laid her flat on the floor
and immediately found that
she had no pulse and was
not breathing.
As David called 9-1-1, he
recalled his annual Navy
CPR training. After direct-
ing the victim's two chil-
dren, ages 2 and 5, into the
living room, he joined his
wife in performing CPR.
Sarah provided the rescue
breathing and David per-
formed the chest compres-
sions.
They continued for sever-

al minutes, until emergency
services arrived and rushed
the victim to a nearby hos-
pital, where her vital signs
and consciousness were
restored.
The medical cause of this
incident is still unknown,
but Richardson has fully
recovered, is in good spirits,
and is now safely back at
home with her family.
She says she has a new
appreciation for life and is
very thankful to have two
angels downstairs.
True heroism often sur-
faces when people just do
the right thing. When
asked if he felt like a hero,
Porter said, "We just did
what anyone else would do
in that situation." Within
24 hours of working with
his wife to save his neigh-
bor's life, Porter helped a
man push his car to a gas
station, as well as jump-
start another stranded
stranger's car.
Porter's co-worker, ET2
Victor Hornilla, said, "We
are beginning to wonder
why we never see Porter
and Superman in the same
place at the same time."
Porter laughs and just
calls himself an "ordinary
guy" - but his actions and
overall attitude are, in fact,
extraordinary.


T T ere we go, here we go, here
we go," shouted AWF2
.L Jeremy Dreger and AWF2
Andrew Gallego Jan. 29, as they pre-
pared me for my first carrier landing
on board USS Harry S. Truman (CVN
75).
The public affairs officer of NAS
Jacksonville assigned me (an NROTC
midshipman) to cover a carrier
onboard delivery (COD) mission dur-
ing Operation United Response.
So, within a few hours, I was seat-
ed backwards in a C-2A Greyhound
assigned to the "Greyhawks" of
Carrier Airborne Early Warning
Squadron (VAW) 120. Based out of
NAS Norfolk, Va., VAW-120 is the
fleet replacement squadron for E-2C
Hawkeyes and C-2A Greyhounds.
They were flying this COD mis-
sion in place of a C-2A from VRC-
40, which was temporarily assigned
to the Haitian relief effort at NS
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. At the same
time, Truman required COD support
during its current work-up cycle off
the coast of Florida.
Operating with 37 personnel and
two C-2A Greyhounds, the detach-
ment worked around a tight schedule
transporting cargo, distinguished visi-
tors, and traditional mail to-and-from
the ship. Completing an average of
two missions per day, the squadron
stepped up to the needs of Operation
Unified Response.
"We're stoked to be supporting
humanitarian efforts in addition to
the usual day-to-day COD require-
ments," said AWF2 Ty Hockstaff. "We
know we're making an impact because
we can directly see it. It's really
rewarding."
Officer-in-charge Lt. Cmdr. Bryan
Shipp said, "It's kind of funny - most
people love this type of operation.
Even though it tends to be longer
working hours and people are work-
ing harder, you get the opportunity
to take more responsibility and more
ownership."
Flying with Lt. Pete Murphy and
Lt. Brian Wilson on an afternoon
flight to Truman, we would drop
off supplies and embark Rear Adm.
William Burke, director, Naval

Truman Jan. 29.


Warfare Integration
Group, and his guests for
the return flight to NAS
Jacksonville.
Dreger and Gallego
acquainted me with the
Greyhawks by escorting
me around the hangar
and explaining the in-
and-outs of the aircraft
in which I'd soon be fly-
ing. The aircrewmen
said that the most excit-
ing part of the mission
would be the trap landing


and catapult takeoff from the busy
Truman flight deck.
From NAS Jacksonville, it took
less than 45 minutes to reach the
aircraft carrier. After one waved
off landing attempt, we success-
fully grabbed the wire and came to
an abrupt stop aboard Truman and
were quickly parked near the island.
With the Greyhound's ramp lowered, I
remained seated and watched as flight
deck personnel unloaded our cargo.
They worked quickly to remove the
cargo in minutes as F/A-18 Hornets
were being moved behind them. The
whole flight deck resembled an enor-
mous chess game in which everyone
and everything had a position and
direction in which they could move.
When permitted to leave my seat,
I moved to the end of the ramp and
watched the ship's activities. Dreger
and Gallego pointed out key opera-
tions on the flight deck as I stood
between the C-2A and the ship's
island.
In less than 60 minutes, we began


take-off procedures.
Dreger and Gallego pre-
pared the Greyhound
for Burke and his dis-
tinguished visitors as I
observed from the fur-
thest seat from the cock-
pit. Then, 14 passengers
including Burke and his
guests quickly boarded
and buckled up.
Within seconds,
Gallego secured the cargo
ramp and informed pas-
sengers of the safety


instructions while Dreger assisted pas-
sengers with their safety restraints.
The pilots turned up the Greyhound's
twin turboprop engines and prepared
for the catapult-assisted take-off.
Leaning back in my seat, I prepared
for take-off. They told me the aircraft
would reach a top speed around 175
mph in less than two seconds. When
the catapult officer gave our pilots the
thumbs-up, my body jerked aft as if I
were riding an extreme rollercoaster.
Unable to keep my feet on the floor,
I held on tight to my chest restraints
as we went "weightless" for a few
seconds as we left the flight deck for
our 30-minute flight back to NAS
Jacksonville.
Upon landing, the aircrew escorted
the admiral and distinguished guests
off and began preparing the aircraft
for its next mission that day. Staying
out of the way, I completed my VAW-
120 COD mission with a new per-
spective on naval aviators, aircrew
and what it takes to support a carrier
strike group with people and supplies.

Red Dress


Day at


NH Jax

Heart disease/stroke

awareness saves lives

From NBHC Mayport
Naval Hospital Jacksonville and its
Naval Branch Health Clinics cel-
ebrated Red Dress Day Feb. 5 as
part of the observance of Heart Health
Month in February.
According to the American Heart
Association, heart disease is the number
one killer of women ages 20 and over. More
women die of cardiovascular diseases than
the next five causes of death combined,
including all forms of cancer.
Some heart attacks are sudden and
intense and there is no doubt about what's
happening. But, most heart attacks start
slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Often
people affected aren't sure what's wrong
and they wait too long before getting help.
Heart attack warning signs
* Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks
involve discomfort in the center of the chest
that lasts more than a few minutes, or that
goes away and comes back. It can feel like
uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, full-
ness or pain.
* Discomfort in other areas of the upper
body. Symptoms can include pain or dis-
comfort in one or both arms, the back,
neck, jaw or stomach.
* Shortness of breath with or without
chest discomfort.
* Other signs may include breaking out
in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
Learn the signs, but remember this: even
if you're not sure it's a heart attack, have
it checked out (tell a doctor about your
symptoms). Minutes matter, so call 9-1-1
immediately.
Stroke warning signs
* Sudden numbness or weakness of the
face, arm or leg, especially on one side of
the body.
* Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or
understanding.
* Sudden trouble seeing in one or both
eyes, walking, dizziness, loss of balance or
coordination.
* Sudden, severe headache with no
known cause.
Immediately call 9-1-1.

not take
a normal
breath
when you
tilt the
head up
and check
for at least
five sec-

Patients often tell me they know
about the risks of smoking tobacco
but are less concerned about dip-
ping or chewing tobacco. Their children
can pick up this habit at school and too
many parents don't take alarm as I'd like
them to about the dangers of all forms of
tobacco -especially smokeless.
Q: What's the problem with smoke-
less tobacco anyway?
Smokeless tobacco is a significant health
risk and not a safe substitute for smoking
cigarettes. Smokeless tobacco contains 28
cancer-causing agents (carcinogens).
Smokeless tobacco use can lead to
nicotine addiction and dependence.
Adolescents who use smokeless tobacco are
more likely to become cigarette smokers.
The two main types of smokeless tobacco
are chewing tobacco and snuff. Chewing
tobacco comes in the form of loose leaf,
plug or twist. Snuff is finely ground tobac-
co that can be dry, moist, or in sachets (tea
bag-like pouches).
Although some forms of snuff can be
used by sniffing or inhaling into the nose,
most smokeless tobacco users place the
product between their gum and cheek.
Users then suck on the tobacco and spit
out the tobacco juices, which is why smoke-
less tobacco is often referred to as "spit"
tobacco.
Q: Who's at highest risk with smoke-
less tobacco?
It's higher among young white males;
American Indians/Alaska Natives; people


- I


living in southern and north central states;
and people who are employed in blue collar
occupations or who are unemployed.
Nationally, an estimated three percent
of adults are current smokeless tobac-
co users. But the number of active duty
Sailors and Marines using smokeless
tobacco may be as high as 40 percent.
Smokeless tobacco use is much high-
er among men (six percent) than women
(below one percent). An estimated eight
percent of high school students are current
smokeless tobacco users.
Q: How can we prevent dependence
on smokeless tobacco?
School-based programs are an opportuni-
ty to discourage youth on the use of smoke-
less tobacco. The film industry can also
influence the public by not glamorizing any
form of tobacco use.
More community wide efforts aimed at
prevention and cessations of smokeless
tobacco use among young people are need-
ed.
At Naval Hospital Jax, we established
an option for callers to the central appoint-
ment phone line (542-4677) which enables
the tobacco users to get the medical thera-
py they may need for tobacco cessation.
With our electronic health record we can
screen patients over the phone and help
them to get the care that really does help
them to quit.
In 2009 over 2,300 patients made the
decision to quit tobacco products with our
help. Our quit rate is nearly 25 percent of
those we enroll in our program. Give us a
try - because smokeless tobacco is not a
safe alternative to smoking.

CHAPLAIN'S CORNER


True love

By Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top

It's that time of year again when love is in the
air. There are a lot of ideas about what true love
is - and many of them actually cause problems in
relationships. So, if you want
to experience true love in your
life, you need to understand
what it is and what it isn't.
Love is not the same as,
"I need you." Romantic rela-
tionships can act as instant
self-esteem, making us feel
loved and wanted. However,
such feelings are an illusion
because self-esteem, by its
nature, cannot come from oth-
ers.
When a person begins to Chaplain
attach their identity to a rela- (Lt.) justin Top
tionship, the feelings of infatu-
ation become like a drug that the person "needs." They
then confuse those desperate feelings of "need" with
love. That is when you begin to hear statements like,
"I need you," or "You complete me," or even, "I cannot
live without you." While those statements may sound
romantic, they have nothing to do with love.
"I need you" is about what I expect you to do for me.
It is selfish in nature and, therefore, is the opposite
of love. Those in "I need you" relationships (based on
infatuation, not love) will eventually find themselves
unhappy because their partner is not "meeting their
needs."
Love is not an uncontrollable emotion. Love is often
viewed as some powerful force that controls us, leav-
ing us helpless to resist its will. We use the phrase
"fall in love," implying that we have no control over
when or with whom it happens. We tell ourselves that
if we "fall out of love," then it must have been deter-
mined by fate. Infatuation is full of these ups and
downs because it is based on emotions that change
based on the situation around us and chemical chang-
es in the brain.
Real love is much more than an emotion. Love is a
choice. Many years ago I was talking to a man study-
ing Palestinian marriages, comparing arranged mar-
riages to "love" marriages. His study found that after
five years the arranged marriages reported a much
higher rate of happiness and success. Perhaps that is
because they knew that love was something that they
had to work hard to achieve. They knew that their
happiness was their own responsibility.
We can control how we feel in relationships. We
choose whom we are attracted to and whom we love.
If we fall out of love, it is because we choose to.
Love is a lifestyle. Love is not an accessory. It must
become a part of you. To truly experience love, you
must be willing to commit your life to cultivating it.
You will have to change the things you do. You will
have to be more observant and more patient and
understanding. You will need to continue to look for
new things you can do to improve the relationship.
You will never get to the point where your relationship
is "safe" and you can sit back and coast for the rest of
life.
Love must become an integral part of your life. You
must continue to win each other's hearts and earn
each other's trust for as long as you live. Like a tender
plant, love must be constantly cultivated in order to
bear fruit.
Love is sacrifice. On my grandparents' 60th wed-
ding anniversary, I asked them what the secret to
a happy marriage is. They confidently responded,
"Learn how to say, 'yes, dear!'" You will occasionally
need to give up your own beliefs about the way things
should be done. One of the most difficult things you
will have to sacrifice is the fairytale "happily ever
after" dream you have created in your mind about
love. Life is full of problems and challenges, so your
relationship is going to be difficult. It will drain you at
times.
Love is not a 50/50 relationship. There will be times
when you will have to carry your partner's load as
well. To accept this burden and love them anyway,
that is how you develop true love.
The more you are willing to make those sacrifices,
the more your ability to love will increase. Love is
worth all the pain not just because of the moments of
powerful trust, unity and joy that come with it, but
also because of what it helps us become. Contrary to
infatuation, true self-sacrificing love spills over into
all aspects of our life, increasing our love of family,
friends, God, and others. It makes us and the world we
live in much better.

I am so mad


SPOUSE'S PERSPECTIVE


B eth, do you know anything
B � about moving? We are mov-
ing to Mayport, Fla. from
California. Shouldn't we get DLA
(DisLocation Allowance)?"
"I'm no expert," I told her, "but you
should get DLA. What's up?"
My friend continued to tell me
the saga of their move preparations.
When her E4 husband went to his
YN1 for assistance with his move
paperwork the YN1 encouraged this
sailor not to take his DLA "because
if you end up living in housing in
Florida you will have to pay it back."
Is your head spinning? Or, like my
friend, do you think maybe the YN1
is right?
I am mad because I receive phone
calls, emails and tweets from spouses
asking questions about similar things.
I hear from spouses who do not know
or fully understand the benefits, pro-
cesses, procedures and opportuni-
ties available to them. With today's
aggressive deployment schedules,
the spouse is often the one to weed
through the Navy machine.
For those of you who need closure


- my husband printed out the instruc-
tion regarding DLA, read every word
and went over it with this E4.
As you may already know, DLA eli-
gibility has nothing to do with where
you live if you have a dependent. Silly
YN1. Our E4 friend took the instruc-
tion back to the YN1 to ask him to
process the DLA, which the YN1
refused to do. He said he would not
process that paperwork until he had
a letter from the receiving command
stating that this sailor, indeed, was
not living in housing. The E4 made an
appointment with his chief. The chief
had conferred with the YN1 prior to
the meeting and spouted the same
thing - get a letter from your receiv-
ing command. Silly Chief.
Bottom line, E4 friend bypassed the
command and went to PSD.
As a result of experiences like this,
quality of life is impacted, perspective
on the Navy impaired, the military is
damaged.
I am just mad enough to take
action. There are opportunities to
learn, resources and support avail-


able. The key is knowing where to
turn, what questions to ask, what
our resources are and how to access
them. I am not the Dear Abby of Navy
spousedom, possessing all answers,
but I have met wonderful people and
organizations, discovered resources
and developed an arsenal of tools to
help me find answers and support.
Over the next six weeks this column
will focus on resources, support,
common issues, and common prac-
tices that I hope will set us up for less
stress and greater success. Please join
me in this series.
I also need your help. What are
the issues, questions, resources, that
you have encountered? You may have
questions you think are 'silly.' Let me
assure you each question is important
and you may be asking it on behalf of
many. Others may have discovered the
key to a smooth move - we want to
hear it! Please drop me your questions
or comments at beth@homefrontinfo-
cus.com or on Twitter (www.twitter.
com/Beth Wilson). Then join me in this
exchange of knowledge and experience.

CFLs certified


to promote health


and wellness
By Brian Chwalisz
Jax Air News Intern


Sailors from bases
throughout Navy
Region Southeast
gathered at NAS Jackson-
ville Feb. 8-12 to complete
the Command Fitness
Leader (CFL) Certification
Course - as part of the
Navy's Physical Readiness
Program and the fleet-wide
commitment to train lead-
ers in the culture of fitness.
"The CFL certification
course is for Sailors who are
assigned this challenging-
but-rewarding collateral
duty. They volunteer to
attend a week-long course
that teaches every aspect of
physical fitness," said NAS
Jax Athletic Director Tim
McKinney.
"CFLs are responsible
for a command's general
fitness. They also pre-
pare their shipmates for
physical readiness tests
and basic group fitness,"
said McKinney. "In order
to be a CFL, one must be
generally fit, use no form
of tobacco, be rate E-6 or
above, and be designated by
their commanding officer."
The course teaches
Sailors about fitness by
means of presentations and
hands-on demonstrations,
both in the classroom and
the gym.
"We cover everything from
administration, physical
readiness, nutrition, hydra-
tion, how to measure gen-
eral body standards and
how to exercise in confined
spaces," said Morale Welfare
and Recreation (MWR)
Fitness Trainer Travis
White. "What we're doing

is creating a standard for
the entire fleet - both afloat
and ashore - by training our
Sailors to lead other Sailors
into physical readiness."
Sailors attending the
course were presented
with the latest ideas on
cardiovascular training
in confined spaces (aboard
ship), tactical training and
specialized training for
Sailors slated to fill indi-
vidual augmentee (IA) bil-
lets. Students also attended
classroom sessions to learn
about recent policy chang-
es, administrative actions
related to physical fitness
assessments, sports nutri-
tion and supplementation
and sports injury preven-
tion.

observed, "We pushed a lot
of information into them
over four days. So we spend
most of Friday on what we
call 'putting it together' -
to see how much knowledge
they have retained this
week. So far, they're look-
ing real sharp and very
motivated.
Other instructors
included MWR Fitness
Coordinator Chris
Crosssman and MWR
Fitness Trainer Ashley
Harrell.
Keeping a sharp eye on
the proceedings was Dean
Harris from OPNAV N135
in Millington, Tenn. He
said, "We're here to fix
any fitness problems and
to make sure that Sailors
are just not taking care
of bad habits but, instead,
living a lifestyle of fitness.
I'm in charge of oversight
and quality assurance of
the CFL course, in order to
guarantee that it is taught
in a professional, motiva-


Students worked enthusi-
astically in groups through-

Taking turns leading spe-

and motivating their fellow
students.

said ETC Chris Ernst from

USS Georgia Gold




Crew returns home


From Commander, Submarine
Group 10 Public Affairs

Sailors from USS Georgia
(SSGN 729) Gold Crew
were greeted by family and
friends Feb. 8 as they arrived at
NAS Jacksonville. The submarine
began its maiden SSGN deploy-
ment from its homeport, Naval
Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga.
on Aug. 6, 2009.
In October 2009, Georgia Gold
Crew flew to Diego Garcia and
completed crew exchange with the
Blue Crew. By using Diego Garcia
as a crew exchange point, the
SSGN can maintain a continuous
presence in its area of operation
for 70 percent of the year.
Georgia Gold Crew was sched-
uled to conduct a crew exchange
and return to Kings Bay in
December 2009, but their deploy-
ment was extended.
"When they got delayed, we felt
like deflated balloon," said Cheryl
Aston, whose husband is Georgia
Gold Crew's chief of the boat.
"Now we are very anxious and
excited, it doesn't feel real."
Georgia Gold Crew's command

ment at Hangar 1122 at NAS Jacksonville Feb. 8.

is greeted by his family at the homecoming at NAS Jacksonville Feb. 8.


support team has been preparing
for the welcome home for days.
They coordinated buses, decora-
tions and refreshments with NAS
Jacksonville and kept in close
contact with the families trying
to keep them up-to-date on the
crew's arrival in Jacksonville,
located about an hour from Kings
Bay.


The command support team
also arranged for a family day
Feb. 6. Families met at the base
housing community center to dec-
orate a banner and make signs
welcoming their Sailors home.
"While our husbands are
away, we try to be there for each
other," said Kathy Brown, wife of
Georgia Gold Crew's commanding


officer.
"The fact that we are close and
take care of each other shows in
our numbers. We had 90 people
RSVP for Saturday's (Feb. 6)
event; we must be doing some-
thing right."
The crew has also been very
productive, they are returning
with a full crew of qualified sub-
mariners.
When a Sailor enters the sub-
marine service he has about one
year to qualify submarines. To
qualify, he must complete a quali-
fication card, pass a test and a
board.
During each of these tasks
the Sailor must show a working


knowledge of damage control,
navigation, propulsion, combat,
electronic and auxiliary systems.
The qualification board is made
up of senior Sailors who are con-
sidered experts on their systems.
"In my 27 years this has never
happened before, for all of our
young Sailors to have earned
their dolphins," said Chief of the
Boat Master Chief Gary Aston.
"It was great to see them tran-
sition from boys to men during
this deployment, I'm very proud of
them."
Georgia Gold Crew will conduct
one more crew exchange before
Georgia returns to Kings Bay
from a year-long deployment.
