Navy Ophthalmologist Capt. Terence
McGee recently returned after lead-
ing a medical team from Naval
Hospital Jacksonville (NH Jax) on a deploy-
ment aboard the Military Sealift Command
hospital ship USNS Comfort.
The 41 Sailors deployed aboard the hospi-
tal ship, as well as seven who went to Naval
Hospital Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, provided
vital medical care to victims of the disaster.
McGee, who returned March 13 with the last
13 NH Jax responders, provided answers
regarding his experiences in an interview:
Q: Can you describe a few patient care
stories that will remain with you from this
A: We treated a young college student
whose dad stayed at his bedside day after
day. At the time of the earthquake, he was
studying with several friends that did not
survive when their house fell in on them.
His skull was badly crushed, and the broken
bones severed both optic nerves that carry
the visual message to the brain. Sadly, mod-
ern medicine doesn't know how to fix that
and he is completely blind in both eyes. We
also treated a man who lost his mother and
five of the 12 children in his care.
We had to remove the badly damaged eye
of a patient who was trapped in rubble for
five days, and yet he left with a smile on his

The VP-5 "Mad Foxes" were recently named the
U.S. Atlantic Fleet winners of the Capt. Arnold
Jay Isbell Trophy for exemplary performance
in anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface
warfare (ASUW) operations from October 2008 to
September 2009. During the deployment, VP-5 dem-
onstrated Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Force

dedication, unprecedented ASW abilities, and his-
toric record-setting operational accomplishments.

He who hesitates dresses like a duck
By Sarah Smiley
My oldest son, Ford, 9, has
always been an affable kid,
but he isn't very fast (Dustin
swears Ford has the unusual talent
to run in slow motion).
Ford is slow in all endeavors, from
putting on his shoes to running to
first base. Yet he has a positive atti-
tude that rivals most motivational
speakers. These traits were never
more apparent than during two recent
events: when Ford broke the chair lift
at a local ski resort, and when he got
stuck "playing the duck" (his words) in
his new Sunday school class.
It was a beautiful day with plenty
of sunshine and snow on the ground
at Sugarloaf Ski Resort. Dustin and
I looked forward to our boys' first
time skiing. Except our younger chil-
dren, Owen, 7, and Lindell, 3, had a
strong reaction when we clipped their
boots into the child-size skis. I think
Lindell's exact words were, "Get these
things off of me! Get these things off of
me right now!" He looked like a crazy
While Dustin and I struggled to
remove Owen and Lindell's skis, our
backs were turned to Ford, so we
didn't realize, until it was too late,
that Ford had already started down
the beginner slope. (Think Clark
Griswald when he goes down the hill
on a greased up sled.) When I turned
around to look, Ford was screaming
"Whoa" and shooting down the moun-
tain like a bullet. Other skiers were
frantically looking over their shoulder
and diving out of the way.
Dustin quickly stepped into his skis
and went after Ford. He caught up to
him near a makeshift ski jump. "Don't
ON THE HOMEFRONT
go over the jump," Dustin yelled to
Ford. But it was too late. Ford skied
up the front of the jump and was pro-
pelled though the air off the back of it.
This should have been enough to
make any 9-year-old terrified and
afraid of skiing. True to Ford's char-
acter, however, he came back up the
hill grinning ear to ear. I knew that
he thought he was the best skier
ever to go down the beginner slope at
Next it was my turn to ski with
Ford. I love everything about skiing,
except the chair lift. Still, I put on a
brave face for my son as the basket
seat scooped us up and we began a
steady climb up the mountain.
About halfway, I began my usual
freak-out session about how and when
to get off the lift. "Relax, Mom," Ford
said. He had all the confidence of a
pro skier. So when I finally skied out
of the chair and down the small hill
at the lift's exit, I thought Ford would
be right behind me.
"Whew, we made it," I said. "That's
my least favorite part."
Ford didn't answer. I looked behind
me. He was still on the chair lift and
headed the other direction, back down
the hill. He was screaming. "Whoa!
Whoa!" Then, when the chair was
about 2-3 feet above the snow, Ford
jumped out. The lift came to a halt.
Fifteen minutes later, the lift was still
not moving as technicians tried to fix
whatever emergency stops my son had
tripped. But Ford was already skiing
down the hill again, oblivious to the
commotion he had caused. He sped
I received a letter in the mail from my credit card com-
pany stating there are changes in my card and they are
changing my interest rate and used terms like "prime rate"
and "margin". I've paid my payments on time, not gone over
my limit, why would they be changing things and what is
MoneyChic says: First, let me assure you that if you were
paying your payments on time and have stayed within your
credit limit, the changes to your card were not based on your
individual score, but based upon new changes in the credit
card laws that took place in February 2010.
These changes were put in place to benefit and protect
consumers, so most likely the changes are better for you.
When the company references the "Prime Rate" they are
referring to the benchmark used in setting credit card rates.
This rate changes whenever the funds rate goes up or down,
which is all determined by the Federal Reserve Board.
When they refer to the "margin" this is the amount com-
panies add to the "Prime rate" to determine your credit card
account's interest rate. This margin is typically calculated
based on your credit record. For example, the current prime
rate is 3.25, which is historically low.
In the early 1980's prime rates were 20.1, to give you an
idea of fluctuation in these numbers over the years. So if the
current starting borrowing rate is 3.25, your company might
charge you a total of 7 percent interest rate right now. They
will always tack on interest points to prime; this is how they
make their profit in lending to you. If you have a variable
rate on your credit card, then your rate will change as the
prime rate changes. Hope this helps clarify for you, glad to
hear you are reading your statements and updates to your

past skiers who had stopped on the
slope to look up at the suspended chair
lift. "Wonder who broke it?" some of
them said. Meanwhile, just past them,
Ford was flying off the ski jump and
screaming "Whoaaaa! Whoa!"
The next day, a Sunday, we visited
a new church. The boys were "the new
kid" in their respective Sunday school
classes, which is nothing unfamiliar
to Ford. As a military dependent, Ford
has moved four times in nine years.
He has been "the new kid" in dozens of
On the drive home from church,
Dustin and I asked the boys about
their classes. "It was great," Ford said,
his characteristic half-moon smile
and twinkling eyes brightening the
rearview mirror. "Except for that part
where they dressed me up like a duck."
Turns out, the kids in the class vol-
unteered to act out parts of a play.
Ford was slow to raise his hand, so
he got the last pick, and by then, all
of the Biblical-era robe costumes had
been claimed by the other actors.
Instead, the teacher offered Ford a
blanket that had ducks on it. "Yeah,
so I was the new kid and basically
dressed up like a duck," Ford said
with visible amusement. Clearly he
would have been disappointed with
anything less than a blanket with
ducks on it. I am certain that the
teachers sensed this. Ford can't wait
to go back.
All of which brings to mind an old
philosophy: He who hesitates gets
stuck on the chair lift . or ends up
dressing like a duck.
CLIFF'S ENERGY NOTES
By Cliff Plante
NAVFAC Resource Efficiency Manager
t's been awhile since my last article so I thought that I
might bring to everyone's attention some good news as it
relates to saving not only energy but also some money!
Our federal government is offering several initiatives to
the public to purchase ENERGY STAR appliances including,
washers/dryers, dishwashers, water heaters and refrigerators.
This is in addition to the major appliances such as your heat-
ing and air conditioning systems or heat pumps.
On the local level, Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA)
offers a rebate program for the purchase of appliances as well
as instant rebates for lamps and compact fluorescent bulbs.
The purchases must be made in Duval County. A list of partic-
ipating merchants can be found on the JEA website (jea.com).
This site also has the mail-in rebate forms for the appliances
At the state level, Florida will offer a 20 percent rebate off
the retail price of a new qualified ENERGY STAR appliance.
Rebates apply only to the purchase of the appliance and not to
delivery or installation costs. Rebates shall be available only
for the following ENERGY STAR certified products: gas tank-
less water heaters, clothes washers, refrigerators, dishwash-
ers, room air-conditioners and freezers.
This program is available to Florida residents through a
mail-in rebate application and will run April 16-25. It is timed
to coincide with Florida's Earth Day activities.
In addition to the rebate for purchasing the ENERGY STAR
appliance, consumers will also receive an additional $75 if
they provide evidence of recycling the old appliance. That evi-
dence may consist of a statement on the retailer receipt indi-
cating pick-up of the old appliance or a receipt from the local
public or private landfill of delivery of the old appliance.

One of the suspects makes a run for the Mulberry Cove Marina where he plans to comman-
deer a powerboat for his escape.
Members from the base security
and fire departments, along with
several outside agencies tested
their communication and tactics skills
during a force protection exercise at NAS
Jacksonville March 24.
The exercise was part of the weeklong
annual Fleet Forces Command Exercise
Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield '10 designed
to enhance training and readiness of secu-
rity force personnel. It is the largest nation-
wide anti-terrorism/force protection exer-
cise in the country.
"NAS Jacksonville personnel continu-
ally train throughout the year to assess
our base posture of readiness and to ensure
our forces are prepared for any real-world
threats," said NAS Jax Commanding
Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
"This exercise went quite well and was
a collaborative effort between our secu-
rity and fire departments, Navy Region
Southeast Regional Dispatch Center,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and the NS Mayport
EOD team. This team effort allows us to
assess potential vulnerabilities and make
changes as needed," continued Scorby.
NAS Jax's Security, Fire Department,
multiple tenant commands, NS Mayport
EOD and others adeptly responded to the
gate-to-shoreline-impacted scenario with
the right combination of energy, experience
control and forwarding of appropriate mes-
sage responses also proved critical towards
assisting Navy Region Southeast and Fleet
Forces Command maintaining a complete
picture of NAS Jax's piece in this nation-
"Our agency is part of the regional
domestic security taskforce and we have a
waterborne response team who participat-
ed in the drill. Anytime there is any type
of Homeland event, we would be called and
because we are based at NAS Jax it makes
is convenient that we have boats so we can
assist. It was a great training event for us,"
explained FWC Field Officer Jamie Bevan.
"This exercise provided us with two
opportunities. The first being to develop
a plan to create a situation where our com-
mand and control, fire and police teams
worked together in a unified command
structure in response to a terrorist attack;
and the second being another opportunity
to reach out for mutual assistance with
outside agencies. In this case, we coordi-
nated mutual assistance from the Florida
Fish & Wildlife and the NS Mayport EOD
team. Angie Reddish and her team at the
regional dispatch center played an invalu-
able role in bringing these efforts together,"
said NAS Jax Installation Training Officer
"Overall, I believe we developed a great
scenario that emphasized value-added
training and more importantly our train-
ing team maintained control of the battle
problem throughout the exercise," added

Williams selected as top VP Sailor
From VP-5 Public Affairs
AZl Arlene Williams,
Sailor from the VP-5
"Mad Foxes," was select-
ed as the 2009 Patrol and
Sailor of the Year (SOY).
The group consists of the
18 squadrons that comprise
Patrol and Reconnaissance
Wings 2, 10 and 11 based
in Kaneohe, Hawaii,
Whidbey Island, Wash., and
As VP-5 Maintenance
Petty Officer, Williams said,
"It is an honor for me to rep-
resent the Sailors whom I
mentor and lead."
AECS Kevin Jenkins of
VP-5 Maintenance Control
states, "She fosters high
morale by consistently exhib-
iting a winning attitude and
setting stringent, achievable
standards for her Sailors
that have resulted in the
highest retention rates at
VP-5 that far exceeded Navy
wide averages. Williams is
one of those rare breeds,
always striving to improve
herself, whose Sailors are
her number one priority."
During the past year,
Williams completed over
75 hours of Primary
Education through Navy
Knowledge Online and
passed what she learned
about the culture and heri-
tage of the Navy to her
She is also a quali-
fied advocate of the sexual
assault prevention and
response program, rais-
ing awareness and provid-
ing guidance in a difficult
but important field. Outside
the squadron, Williams
is a pillar of the communi-
ty where she was awarded
the Military Outstanding
Volunteer Service medal for
her involvement with local
schools, childcare, and activ-
ities associated with the

Williams says, "In my
experience at VP-5, this
command has had good COs

McGEE: Navy medical support for Haiti, other regional nations will continue
From Page 1
The injured children were
most heart-rending, since
they often had no one with
them treating a five-year-
old with no known fam-
ily, seeing orphans, seeing a
child with severe injuries and
no home to return to.
You were happy to be so
busy with the medical end
that you didn't have to think
too much about all the social
issues. There were lots of
staff members that shed
many tears over the destitu-
tion we witnessed.
Q: Does the return of the
USNS Comfort indicate that
support has ended?
A: It is reassuring to
know that the Navy will be
able to maintain its medi-
cal support for Haiti as well
as other Caribbean and
Central American nations
with Operation Continuing
Promise 2010. We will send
a medical team back to the
region this summer to help
support the continued repair
of the medical infrastruc-
ture in Haiti and to build
upon the relationships we've
formed with the Haitian
Q: How quickly were the
medical and surgical teams
able to integrate with the
host national and NGOs to
respond to the Haiti earth-
A: One of the very happy
aspects of the mission was
seeing how rapidly the dis-
parate parts of the medical
team came together. Anyone
that deals with surgical
issues knows how much we
depend on the "team" con-
cept, and how reassuring it
is to have the same operating
room nurses, scrub techni-
cians, anesthesiologists and
surgeons working together.
In this case, we had mili-
tary staff from many differ-
ent commands, reservists,
and civilians rapidly come
together to from these teams.
We had to liaison with many
tions in order to receive the
patients initially, make sure
we were getting the right mix
of patients, and to transfer
them to appropriate care
facilities once they were sta-
Q: Describe the types of
medical services provided
during the two-month mis-
A: The mission was very
orthopedic heavy. Nearly
every patient we treated
had some bone injury along
with whatever other soft tis-
sue injuries they suffered.
We saw complex fractures,
complicated skull fractures
unlike any I was accustomed
to seeing. We had many
crushed extremities that
had to be amputated, pres-
sure wounds that looked very
much like burns, dozens of
complex pelvic fractures, long
bones sticking out through
infected wounds -- many of
these patients were badly
delayed in being able to get
to us. Only once before had
I seen maggots in wounds,
but infected wounds were
common here. We had a won-
derful mix of specialists to
care for these problems, from
many orthopedists to neuro-
surgeons, craniofacial plas-
tic surgeons, ear, nose and
throat surgeons, oral-max-
illofacial surgeons, ophthal-
mologists, trauma surgeons,
vascular surgeons, pediatric
surgeons, wound care nurses,
infectious disease specialists,
nephrologists, critical care
specialists, specialists in lab-
oratory medicine, radiologists
with a superb CT scanner
and many pediatric subspe-
Q: How do you feel about
being part of a humanitarian
A: This was medicine at
its best and at its worst. We
rarely have to practice real
triage in the U.S., where
we decide not to treat some
patients because they will
take up so much care that
could save several others. Yet
this is what our triage teams
on the island had to do -- to
select who we would treat,
knowing that some cases
we turned away had a fatal
But we also provided hon-
est to goodness life-saving
care. And you can likely mul-
tiply that number several
times over with the medical
and pharmaceutical supplies
we sent to other facilities on
the shore that allowed them
to do their life saving work.
We were blessed many times
over by grateful Haitian
patients speaking in Creole --
"Bon dieu bien oo" -- or "God
bless you," and that is a very
Q: What was Navy
Medicine's greatest contribu-
tion to the Haiti earthquake
A: I'm fortunate to have
played a small role in the
relief effort for Haiti. Every
one of us is leaving with
deeply personal memories.
I am very proud of the role
Jacksonville Sailors played.
Besides the obvious need to
treat and house the patients
and their escorts, we need-
ed to house and feed more
than 1,200 staff, as well as
do laundry, serve meals,
wash dishes and run a small
city at sea. That takes a lot
of hands doing some very
unglamorous work, and we
did it seamlessly. And while
we were gone, our shipmates
in Jax still had to carry the
load and provide the great
care we always provide to our
families at home.
Q: How can people continue
to help the Haitian people?
A: For people wanting
to provide help there are
accepting donations. The
American Red Cross, Project
Hope, Catholic Charities are
some of many charities that
are working in Haiti.
(It is advised that dona-
tions be made cautiously
through well-known orga-
nizations with established
legitimacy and transpar-
ency as to how much of
your donated dollar actu-
ally reaches those in need.
There are always unscrupu-
lous people out there taking
advantage of disasters with
scams. The DoD does not
endorse individual charities
but does encourage contrib-
uting through the Combined
Federal Campaign in which
individuals can target dona-
tions to specific organiza-

Bashir's visit to NAS Jacksonville is
important for the Pakistan Navy mari-

in order to strengthen the relationship
between the two maritime nations.
As part of the visit, Bashir par-
ticipated in a familiarization flight
aboard one of the P-3C Orion mari-

Pakistan Navy aircrew.

Capt. Ron Bach, U.S. Naval Attach6
to Pakistan, and Bashir's U.S. Navy
escort during the visit, pointed to the
Pakistan Navy's superior support of
anti-piracy efforts and peacekeeping
operations with the United Nations.
"It's significant that the Pakistan
Navy has commanded Combined Task
Force (CTF) 150 four times since the
task force was established by the
United Nations in 2001. Their active
leadership engenders trust and confi-
dence among other Islamic nations to
also participate," explained Bach.
CTF-150, a multinational task force,
conducts maritime security operations
in and around the Strait of Hormuz,
Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Oman, Arabian
Sea, Indian Ocean and the Red Sea.
The task force was created to coun-
ter terrorism, prevent smuggling and
deter other destabilizing activities in
the maritime environment.

HM2 Emmanuel Jean Baptiste is a Naval Hospital Jax corpsman of Haitian heritage. When
the devastating earthquake struck the island in January, he put his concerns about relatives
and others on the island into action by organizing a donation drop-off site at the hospital
warehouse for goods to be shipped to Haiti. JeanBaptiste works in the hospital's Central
Sterilization and Supply Receiving Division.
The Retired Activities Program office
is located in the Fleet and Family

Working with the Naval Hospital
(NH) Jax Haiti relief effort is
someone with a personal con-
nection to the disaster. HM2 Emmanuel
JeanBaptiste, an NH Jax biomedical
repair technician, quickly volunteered to
deploy to Haiti to aid victims but found
he could serve equally well from NH Jax.
JeanBaptiste, like several other hospi-
tal personnel, has relatives on the island.
JeanBaptiste, grew up in New York, but
his heritage is Haitian. His mother's
immediate family were unreachable in the
aftermath of the earthquake. They were
extremely concerned about their relative's
fate, but later learned they were uninjured.
JeanBaptiste wasn't able to deploy to
the region, as space was being carefully
allocated to mission essential personnel on
the hospital ship, in order to save beds for
patients. It was determined he would be
Jax. His mother, Jacqueline Nicolas, who
works with the Transportation Security
Administration in New York, was able to
join a team that deployed to the island.
JeanBaptiste turned his desire to help
into action. Working with LS1 Saturino
Rivera in the material management ware-
house and coordinating with the American
Red Cross and Mission Harvest America,
JeanBaptiste helped organize a Haiti relief
donations collection site.
The team at material management
pitched in to pack and ship donated goods,
via Barge Water Terminal Blount Island
Command to Haiti.
Through that program, and with the gen-
erosity of individual and civic donors, the
NH Jax team has shipped hundreds of
donated goods to those desperately in need.
These ranged from canned and non-perish-
able food and water to clothing, toiletries,
bedding, candles, flashlights and batteries.

The helicopter touched
down at 3 p.m. in the
Wildcats' football field to the
awe and excitement of more
than 800 assembled stu-

The students were then per-

aircraft and have pictures
taken inside. For most of
these young students, it was
the first time they had ever
been this close to a military
aircraft. "This is so cool,"
Travis, a seventh grader,
said. "It looks so much big-

Celebrating Women's History Month
By Jeanne Casey
NH Jax Public Affairs
NAS Jacksonville's Multi-cultural
Awareness Committee present-
ed a Women's History Month
Observance March 24 at NAS Jax
Officers' Club. The guest speaker was
retired Lt. Col. Adrienne LaPort6, who
joined the Army Nurse Corps in 1966 and
served two tours in Vietnam.
LaPort6 addressed a diverse audience of
women and men; civilian, active duty and
reserve (E-1 to admiral). She explained the
egalitarian nature of her role in Vietnam:
"As a nurse, you take care of people, wheth-
er they're civilian or military."
She said she faced many barriers.
Women's tours in Vietnam were limited
to one year. But she wanted to continue
rendering care, so (with the help of Senator
Robert F. Kennedy) she obtained special
orders to serve two years.
Women weren't allowed to drive jeeps.
This made it tougher to do her job, so, as
she explained, some gung-ho special forc-
es troops built a jeep for her out of scrap
materials, put a big yellow daisy on the
front, and "off I went."
LaPort6 summed up her experiences by
saying, "You do what you need to do. We've
overcome a lot not just women, but all

Women were first assigned to ships in

NDSL Jax Public Affairs Officer
Recently, the Navy Drug
Jax), commanded by Cmdr. Eric
Hoffman, renewed its efforts to
reduce its 'carbon footprint' as
well as lessen its general impact
on the environment.
In line with the Secretary of the
Navy's recently released energy
goals, as well as those outlined
by Commander, Navy Region
Southeast, NDSL Jax has taken
steps to reduce its energy consump-
tion as well as initiate a command-
wide recycling program.
NDSL Jax Executive Officer Lt.
Cmdr. Matthew Jamerson, recently
took the lead in establishing the
"NDSL Jacksonville was focused
on recycling the numerous card-
board boxes in which we receive
urine specimens from the Fleet and
Marine Corps," said Jamerson.
"It's also important to realize our
employees bring material into the
unit that should be recycled and
not allowed to enter the general
The unit purchased a recycling
container and placed it in the break
room. This convenient location
allows all 69 civilian personnel and
four active duty Naval officers to
easily recycle waste products such
as aluminum cans and plastic bot-
These objects, which are typical
of lunch and snack packaging, can
occupy significant landfill space if
Recycling these materials also
helps limit energy consumption by
the manufacturer of these products.
When the unit's recycling con-
tainers are full, a representa-
tive delivers the materials to the
NAS Jax Recycling drop-off point
(Building 623). At the recycling
facility, the material is added to
other NAS Jax recycled material
and processed for recovery.
Recycling is not the only area in
which the unit is tacking towards
The laboratory has established
a command-wide mindset focused
on energy savings. Employees are
encouraged to turn off computer
monitors, printers and lights when
departing spaces at the end of each
Motion sensor lights have been
installed in bathrooms, utility
rooms and supply rooms.
"We continually look for ways
to improve our productivity and
efficiency," said Dr. James Evans,
technical director for NDSL Jax.
"Reducing our energy consump-
tion is a natural extension of our
staff's commitment to these efforts
and, ultimately, to our customers."
To date, these energy reduction
measures have produced a net sav-
ings of 40 percent in natural gas
usage and 4 percent in electricity
usage for the first four months of
FY2010 when compared to FY2009
The unit's recycling and energy
savings programs provide a model
for personnel to think green in
their personal lives and, hopefully,
create a cleaner environment.

replacing them with a new electronic leave
The new system, called Self-Service Electronic

Sailors can access through their Electronic Service

chit and I won't have to worry about my personal infor-
mation sitting in an inbox on somebody's desk where it
may get lost or misplaced," said YNCS(AW) Theresa
Bell, assigned to Navy Personnel Command.
Shore-based implementation of E-Leave is scheduled
to begin in August. An afloat version will be phased in
over the next 24 months as shipboard Navy Standard

upgraded. Sailors who have not yet established a Self-
Service ESR can create an account at https://nsips.

Operation Purple: Can I go?
I am interrupting my "Savvy Spouse
Series' to talk about one of the most
exciting opportunities for military
youth and teens. Spring is about to begin
and that means summer isn't far behind.
With that is enrollment for an outstanding
opportunity for military children with a
parent currently deployed or scheduled to
The National Military Family Association
(NMFA, www.nmfa.org), an organization
dedicated to educating and supporting mili-
tary families on benefits, rights and services
sponsors a free summer camp for children
of deployed service members. This camp,
Operation Purple, provides fun, excitement,
and a safe and positive outlet for children of
deployed military service members.
The goal of these free camps is to bring
together youth who are experiencing some
stage of deployment and the stress that
goes along with it for a week packed full of
fun while providing campers a safe place
to express their worries, fear and concerns
with others who can empathize and under-
stand. In the midst of rafting, canoeing,
sports, and too many activities to mention,
campers learn coping skills while developing
their own support system among their fellow
campers, their peers. The friendships devel-
oped during their week-long camp experi-
ence have aided kids to "better handle life's
ups and downs."
Registration for Operation Purple is now
open. There are over 90 camps at 65 loca-
tions including Germany and Guam. Full
details of the camps are available on their
website, www.operationpurple.org. Children
of all deployed uniformed services (Army,
Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, NOAA,
National Guard and Reserve) are eligible
as well as those facing an upcoming deploy-
ment within a 15-month window of the
camp. Note that while the total cost of the
camp is free transportation to and from
camp are not included.
In addition to the traditional Operation
Purple summer camps, NMFA sponsors
teen camps, teen leadership camps, family
retreats, camps for families of the wounded
and day clinics in overseas locations.
