Buckler and P-3 Production Support Specialist Willie Barton.
With a little more than
eight months into his
job as commodore of
Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing
(CPRW) 11, Capt. Mark Turner
reports that, "I've got one of the
best jobs in our community, and
it requires the best from my
team every day."
He tells his people, "If you don't
like change, you're in the wrong
wing. Change is our constant
companion as evidenced by
the recent dedication of Hangar
511 and the upcoming ground
breaking for our P-8 Integrated
In his previous job as P-3/P-8
requirements officer, Turner was
the Chief of Naval Operations'
(CNO) representative on all issues
related to the P-3 Orion.
"At the Pentagon, you think in
terms of six-year plans and the
strategic future of the Navy's
maritime patrol community. But
here at the wing level, we have
daily issues that demand atten-
tion," said Turner.
"One minute we're meeting with
the P-8 fleet integration team -
and the next minute, we're plan-
ning support for relief missions,
anti-piracy operations and other
deployments. It's a challeng-
ing assignment that I'm glad to
have, especially in these turbulent

An e-mail from my son
By Sarah Smiley
Who says that technology is
tearing families apart?
Well . I said it several
weeks ago when I wrote about bond-
ing with my children over a game of
"Would You Rather" during a power
outage. In the absence of distracting
technology no iPhones, TV, laptops
or iPods our family came together
in a way we previously had not expe-
rienced. I decided that technology is a
pariah of family life.
But now, I'm not totally convinced.
As I drove to the grocery store the
other night, my iPhone vibrated. I
parked and flipped open the case to
see on screen, in bold letters (the uni-
versal sign for unread mail) my son's
name: Ford Smiley.
Until iPhone, I could only check my
e-mail at home, sitting at my com-
puter a giant desktop thing with a
monitor shaped like an old television.
Ten years before that, I didn't even
have a computer. I checked my e-mail
at the university library.
News from family and friends was
downloaded periodically in chunks.
Mom would send me an e-mail imme-
diately after finding a snake on
her front porch, for instance. But I
wouldn't receive the message until
several hours later. Or Dustin, then
my fianc6, attending flight school
in Pensacola, would send me a mes-
sage but I would talk to him on my
land-line phone before I ever saw the
Now I sat in the grocery store park-
ing lot, staring at my 9-year-old son's
FROM THE HOMEFRONT
name on a computer that fits into my
pocket. I had just said goodbye to Ford
minutes earlier, as I left the house.
I felt like I had just stepped into my
son's stream of consciousness. What
could have happened between leaving
the house and now?
Also, the words Ford Smiley looked
so strange to me. I remember when
Dustin and I chose the nickname Ford
(his real name is Henry Rutherford
Smiley) when he was born. I remem-
ber writing his name on the birth
certificate application, and having it
embroidered on a Christmas stocking.
Now that same name had come to me
in the form of an electronic message.
And the e-mail read (drum roll), "Hi."
I replied: "So nice to see your name
in my inbox, Ford. I love you, Mom."
So began the electronic dimension
of my relationship with Ford. Have
you noticed that children reveal
more verbal information when they
are busy coloring or when they are
in the backseat of the car? Without
face-to-face interaction, kids open up.
I suspect this is why the power outage
caused our children to be so honest -
they couldn't see our faces. Through
e-mail, I may gain new insights into
But the truth is, "darkness" helps
me to be more genuine, too. This
is why I fight with my husband via
instant message even when we are
both home. I grab my laptop, stomp
upstairs and begin an emotional
dump on Dustin via Facebook chat.
Dustin plays along for awhile, then he
comes to the doorway and says, "This
is stupid. Can't we just talk?"
"I'm not finished with you. Go back
downstairs and get on your computer."
One time, Dustin beat me at my
own game when we sat across from
one another in the living room.
Computers in our laps, I was mad
about something Dustin said, so I
instant messaged him, "Hi..." as I
worked on my next thought when
his reply appeared on my screen:
"Dustin Smiley is not available to
chat right now."
I looked across the room. Dustin
was squinting at his computer screen,
pretending to be busy, as he grinned
at his own cleverness.
Excluding this one example, online
chat has probably saved my marriage.
Perhaps it is the forced turn-taking
inherent to online messaging that
makes arguing more productive. Or
maybe it is the absence of face-to-face
interaction. Whatever the reason, it's
possible that in the future (I'm think-
ing of the teen years), electronic com-
munication may ironically bring me
closer to my sons and their thoughts
There's always something to be
gained from periodically shutting out
technology and reconnecting on a dif-
ferent level. And that's why, when I
saw that Dustin had absent-mindedly
put dirty dishes in the cupboard this
morning, I chose to fight with him in
CLIFF'S ENERGY NOTES
By Cliff Plante
Naval Engineering Command Southeast
W hat are you be doing on
I suggest that we take
this opportunity to look at the chal-
lenges that face us as we look to not
only reduce our energy profile but to
also make our planet a healthier place
for our families. Earth Day 2010 can
be a turning point to advance climate
research, energy efficiency, renewable
energy and green jobs.
Earth Day 2010 is a pivotal oppor-
tunity for individuals, corporations
and, yes, the federal government, to
join together and support a global
One way you can personally make
a difference is to reduce your water
usage. You can do simple things like
creating landscape beds using plants
and bushes that are indigenous to
Florida and also drought-tolerant.
Hey MoneyChic: I'm new in the
Navy, live in the barracks and don't
have a car. I basically just have a cell
phone bill. Of course, I've got goals for
the future. I'd like to eventually get
a place of my own and my own set of
wheels, but I'm not really sure what
normal amounts to spend on this kind
of thing would be? Do you have any
MoneyChic says: Let me applaud
you on thinking about these questions.
Some folks act on their desires and
then wonder later if their purchase is
within their budget. It's always best to
think things through first. For start-
ers, look at your BAH rate.
This is the rate that the Navy sets
Further, by mulching the beds you
reduce the need for watering.
Planting trees is another relatively
inexpensive way to not only provide
shade to your home, but to remove
C02 from the atmosphere during
photosynthesis. This forms carbohy-
drates that are used in plant struc-
ture/function and return oxygen back
to the atmosphere as a byproduct. If
every American family planted one
tree, the amount of C02 in the atmo-
sphere would be reduced by one billion
pounds annually. This is almost five
percent of the amount that human
activity pumps into the atmosphere
Energy conservation is another way
of reducing your carbon footprint.
There are several initiatives that the
federal government is offering in the
way of energy tax credits. For quali-
fied improvements, such as install-
ing a new heat pump SEER (seasonal

off base. Keep in mind, if you live off
base, in addition to rent, you will be
,.yin% ii: utility bills, trash collection
fees, renter's insurance, etc.
Another good rule of thumb can be
taken from Jean Chatzky, the author
of The Difference: How Anyone Can
Prosper in Even the Toughest Times.
Thirty-five percent of your pay should
be allotted to housing costs such as
rent/mortgage, utilities, maintenance,
taxes and insurance. Twenty-five per-
cent should go to miscellaneous "costs
of life" such as clothes, travel and lei-
sure activities. Fifteen percent should
cover transportation including your
car payment, insurance, upkeep and
non-solar water heater or attic insu-
lation, homeowners may be able to
claim tax credits equal to 30 percent
of the installed costs (up to $1,500).
The new tax credits are retroactive to
January 2009 and expire Dec. 31. The
$1,500 limit is for all improvements
made during the two-year term, rath-
er than $1,500 each year.
As citizens of Florida, you can
take a proactive approach to Earth
Day (April 22). Plan to attend the
Downtown Jacksonville celebration
marking the 40th anniversary of
Earth Day on April 17 from 10 a.m.-4
p.m. at The Jacksonville Landing.
This event features more than 80
booths of educational and interac-
tive displays and live entertainment
throughout the day hosted by Radio
A Children's Stage will also be
located near the Andrew Jackson stat-
ue offering a variety of kid-friendly,
gas. Another 15 percent goes to debt
repayment for items like student
loans, credit cards and/or bank loans.
(In an ideal world you wouldn't have
any of these. If you don't, pat yourself
on the back and add this percentage
amount to another category.)
The remaining 10 percent should
go towards savings. You might also
want to shave small numbers off
each group, if you want to add in
"giving" as in to church or charities
as well. This will give you a broad
guideline for what is a good amount
for each area of spending. As you can
see there, is no set number for each
amount, as it's based upon income,
therefore we use the percentages.

'Pelicans' perform burial at sea
From VP-45 public affairs
VP-45 "Pelicans" committed the
remains of one of their own, retired
Lt. Cmdr. Billy Colvin, to the sea
during an in-flight burial from a P-3C
off the coast of Pensacola, Fla. March 13.
Colvin died in August 2008 from a sudden
illness at the age of 59.
"Unto almighty God, we commend our
departed brother as we commit his body
to the deep." With those words, CPRW-
11 Chaplain (Lt. Cmdr.) Atticus Taylor
released Colvin's ashes at 1,500 feet above
the Gulf of Mexico from a P-3C Orion
assigned to VP-45.
Colvin was born in Detroit in 1949 and
raised in Geraldine, Ala. He enlisted in
the Navy in 1968 as a P-3 acoustic opera-
tor. He attended Auburn University, earn-
ing his commission upon graduation.
Colvin returned to the P-3 community as
a naval flight officer with tours at VP-31,
VP-17 and VP-30, culminating in his
department head tour at VP-45.
In October 1993, Colvin retired and
moved his family to Pensacola, where his
wife Kathy and daughter Tina still reside.
Early on March 13, two VP-45 crews
gathered in Hangar 1000 to fly two air-
craft to NAS Pensacola.
"We weren't taking any chances of
not reaching Pensacola," stated VP-45
Commanding Officer Cmdr. Andrew
Smith, who flew on the lead aircraft.
After the one-hour flight west to NAS
Pensacola, both P-3s touched down and
taxied to where the Colvin family was
watching from the tarmac. "Two planes for
my Billy," exclaimed Colvin's widow, Kathy.
"How could I ask for anything better?"
A brief ground ceremony, officiated by
Taylor, followed a meet-and-greet and air-
craft tour with the aircrews and Colvin's

After the reading of the committal by
Smith, Colvin's ashes were released via the
plane's free-fall chute, normally reserved
for dropping of ordinance such as buoys
and smoke signals. Three bells rang, signi-
fying the completion of the ceremony.
Returning to Pensacola, Smith presented
Colvin's family with a flag and a letter
expressing his condolences for their loss.
"I couldn't think of a better way to honor
Billy, to have his final flight aboard a P-3,"
said Mrs. Colvin.

Alternative rock band Blue October performs one of their hit songs on stage at NAS Jacksonville's All-Hands Spring Concert.
The alternative metal/post-grunge band Trust Company from Prattville, Ala., rocks the house
during the concert.
Members of the cover band The 86's from Charleston, S.C., perform for the audience during a
free concert at NAS Jacksonville March 26. The event was sponsored by the Morale, Welfare
and Recreation Department.
By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO
hundreds of fans turned out
March 26 at Allegheny Field
at NAS Jacksonville for the
All-Hands Spring Concert head-
lined by alternative rock band
The event was sponsored by the
Morale, Welfare and Recreation
(MWR) Department. Planet Radio
disc jockey "Chumley" was mas-
ter of ceremonies for the concert.
The music kicked off at 7:30 p.m.
with some classic and modern
rock 'n' roll cover songs by The
86's from Charleston, S.C. The
music had many of the Sailors
and their families singing along
and dancing as the band belted
out numbers from Bryan Adams,
Green Day, Foo Fighters, Tom
Petty and Sublime, to name a few.
"This is awesome and so much
fun, thanks to MWR! We
brought the whole family out
tonight to enjoy the free con-
cert," said Dani Waterman, who
attended the concert with her
husband and three children.
After a brief intermission as the
sun began to set, the heavy metal,
post-grunge band Trust Company
from Prattville, Ala. hit the stage
and quickly had the fans revved
up and moving closer to the
music at the front of the stage.
"I came out tonight to see Trust
Company because they just
recently got back together and
I haven't heard them in quite
awhile. I think it's great that
MWR put on this free concert
for us and it seems to be a good
turnout tonight," said AT1(AW)
James Riner of Fleet Readiness
Center Southeast. "It's a great
idea and I'm really enjoying it."
The headline act of the evening
was Blue October, a five-man
concert brings out
alternative rock group from
Houston. The band was formed
in 1995 by lead singer/songwrit-
er/guitarist Justin Furstenfeld,
his brother, Jeremy Furstenfeld
and multi-instrumentalist Ryan
Delahoussaye. Other band mem-
bers include Matt Noveskey and
C.B. Hudson. They released
their first album, The Answers,
in 1998 and were signed to
Universal Records in 1999. Since
then, Blue October has released
four albums with hits such as
"Calling You" and "Hate Me."
"We are here tonight because
we were asked by the military
to come and play for the troops
and we do that any chance we
can get. They do so much for us
- keeping us safe -that it's the
least we can do to come out and
play for them. We've performed on
several military installations in
the past," said drummer Jeremy
Furstenfeld. "We just want our
audience to keep their ears and
minds open, forget about work for
a little while and enjoy the music."
And that's exactly what
the crowd seemed to do as
they sang along and moved
to the rhythm of the music.
MWR Liberty Program Manager
Mack Cooper explained that the
previous concert last August
proved so successful that he
wanted to host another show.
"Unlike our last show, we don't
have as many acts, but we have
bigger acts instead. Groups like
Blue October and Trust Company,
are some of the fastest growing
groups out there. We also have a
new up-and-coming band named
The 86's performing. Just like the
other two groups, they are very
eager to perform for the military,"
Cooper began coordi-
nating the logistics of the
event about three months
ago. "Once we decided on
a specific date, we began
the research into which
bands we might want to
book, based on cost and
availability. Then we pre-
sented our plans to the
command for approval and
followed up with a strong
marketing proposal," con-
tinued Cooper. "Then, we
had the enormous task of
setting up and organizing
the event. But, everything
went smoothly and it's a
great show for our Sailors.
I love working on projects
that add to the quality

Defense Department notes rise Sexual assault
in sexual assault reporting
By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
reports of sexual assault involving service mem-
bers rose by 11 percent in fiscal 2009, a senior
Defense Department official said March 15. In
the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, more than 3,225
reports of sexual assault were filed.
An increase in reporting was a goal for the depart-
ment, said Kaye Whitley, director of the Defense
Department's sexual abuse prevention and response
"Research in the civilian community shows that sexual
assault is widely underreported, and we believe that is
the same in the military," said Whitley. "As a result,
increasing reporting has been one of our key goals. We
want people who are victims of sexual assault to come
forward so they can get the help that they need."
The department's goal is to create a "climate of confi-
dence" so that people will come forward to report, added
Whitley. One aspect of the program is a confidential
reporting option called "restricted reporting," which lifts
some of the barriers that can deter military personnel
from reporting sexual assault. Unrestricted reporting
means the victim's command is notified and an investi-
Under the restricted reporting option, the command is
not notified and an investigation does not follow. Still,
the victim can receive medical, mental health and all
other services without becoming involved in the military
criminal justice process.
Whitley said the number of sexual assaults in the
military probably is comparable to the civilian commu-
nity, but that direct comparisons are hard to make. The
overall rate for the Defense Department was two reports
of sexual assault per thousand service members. In the
Army, the rate was 2.6 per thousand. In the Navy it was
1.6 per thousand, in the Air Force 1.4 per thousand, and
in the Marine Corps 1.3 per thousand. Service-specific
data, including the total numbers of reports, is included
in the annual report.
"Our total number includes both perpetrators and vic-
tims," Whitley said. The data covers eight categories of
sexual assault ranging from the least-egregious wrong-
ful sexual contact to rape.
"We need to keep in mind that these are reports where
the victim or the perpetrator was a military member,"
The reports include sexual assaults reported that
involved a military member against a military mem-
ber, a military member against a civilian or a civilian
against a military member, she explained.
In 2009, 123 victims converted their restricted reports
to the unrestricted category. "What we find are those
people who are victims of sexual assault feel a loss of
control," Whitley said.
"Then, when we meet with them and give them these
reporting options, they get a little bit of that control
back. So often, if they go home feeling supported, they
may start feeling comfortable with reporting it. When
they change it to an unrestricted report, we can investi-
gate and prosecute."
The restricted reporting option has been in place since
2005, according to Whitley. "Over 3,600 people have
used that option since then, so that tells me that over
3,600 people wouldn't have come forward otherwise," she
Whitley added that DoD will continue raising aware-
ness about sexual abuse prevention. This year's theme
- "Hurts one. Affects all. Preventing sexual assault
is everyone's duty" -concentrates on readiness, said
A groundbreaking ceremony to kick off construction of a new
parking lot addition at the NAS Jax Golf Course was held March
30. The additional parking spaces will serve the 56,000 patrons
that utilize the facility annually and be completed in June. The
new addition will expand the parking area by 55,000 square feet.
The project will also include modifications to the existing park-
ing lot, such as new curb and gutters, as well as new lighting.

Another logistics concern is how the Blue Angels work
with Jacksonville International Airport during the show.
"We've worked with them in the past," he said. "I am sure
they will work with us again and minimize the departures
and arrivals along specific runways so it doesn't affect the
five-mile ring we require around show center."
The Blue Angel's air show season began in January after
a heavy training schedule at NAF El Centro, Calif. "We
began training Jan. 4 in El Centro where we flew two to
three times a day, six times a week. It was a very busy
schedule and we did 120 training flights necessary prior to
our first public demonstration in El Centro. We've had sev-
eral other air shows since then and we are well on our way
into air show season," Simonsen stated.
The Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Team originated

be held here Oct. 23-24 and is open to the public.

Since the BRAC (base

- three straight-stick squad-
rons and one special proj-
ects squadron. Now, with
a total of eight squadrons
(seven active, one reserve),
the pace of operations has
doubled and CPRW-11 has
added staff to ensure success-

M\I charter, as commo-
dore, is to take care of our
people. I'm pleased to say
that the Brunswick transi-
tion exceeded my expecta-
tions because stable fami-
lies and informed spouses
enable our Sailors and
junior officers to be properly
focused. Wing 11 is charged
with manning, training and
equipping the squadrons as
they go through their home
cycle, in order to prepare
them for their next deploy-
ment," said Turner.
One of the most signifi-
cant events in recent MPRF
history took place Dec. 15,
2007, when the Navy saw
25 percent of its P-3 Orion
fleet grounded due to struc-
tural fatigue concerns. As
P-3/P-8 requirements officer,
Turner was part of the team
who briefed the secretary
of defense, secretary of the
Navy and CNO on the impact
of shutting down one-fourth
of the P-3 inventory virtually
Turner explained, "That
put a huge demand signal
on Fleet Readiness Centers
(FRC) and contractors.
God bless FRC Southeast,
because we threw an unprec-
edented amount of work at
them with the P-3 'Red
Stripe' recovery plan. At its
inception, we had more than
15 P-3s down on the NAS
Jacksonville flight line."
"After an end-to-end
enhanced their rework pro-
cess to increase their output
of rejuvenated P-3s. Now,
we're down to about three
Orions waiting for rework.
Capt. Sohl and Cmdr.
Buckler are premier support-
ers of our community."
"The spread of MPRF mis-
sion sets has only increased
as our P-3 fleet has aged.
From ISR support in 5th
Fleet and broad-area ASW
operations in 7th Fleet to
off the Horn of Africa and
drug interdiction operations
in the Caribbean, we call on
our Sailors to be exceptional
at a lot of things and they
continue to meet our expecta-
tions," said Turner.
As Red Stripe P-3s repop-
ulate the NAS Jacksonville
flight line, it means more
assets for advanced train-
ing to create the best product
going forward. Turner's focus
is on pilot proficiency and
core warfighting competency
P-3 flight simulators also
fall under the domain of
"We're finishing the instal-
lation of a simulator from
NAS Brunswick to support
our increased number of P-3
squadrons. The next step in
our simulation development
is preparing for the new P-8
Poseidon which will really
change the way we train. On
the P-3 Orion, we train 30
percent in simulators and
70 percent in the aircraft.
With P-8, we'll flip the train-
ing process to 70 percent in
'high fidelity' simulation and
30 percent in the aircraft for
touches and operational read-

total operating costs of P-8
Poseidon so the wave of the
future is simulation. Just ask

CHILD ABUSE: April
is awareness month
From Page 1
When children are nurtured, they can grow up to
be happy and healthy adults. But when they lack an
attachment to a caring adult, receive inconsistent
nurturing, experience harsh discipline or witness vio-
lence, the long lasting consequences can affect their
health, well being and relationships with others.
Child abuse and neglect often take place in the
home and come from a person the child knows well -
such as a parent, babysitter or friend of the family.
By ensuring that parents have the knowledge,
skills, and resources they need to care for their chil-
dren, we can help prevent child abuse and neglect by
strengthening families and communities.
Research shows that five important factors are
present in healthy families. Promoting these factors
is among the most effective ways to reduce the risk of
child abuse and neglect:
Nurturing and attachment
Knowledge of parenting and of child and youth development
Concrete supports for parents

Students learn operations
at Flight Line Cafe
By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO a '=-
The NAS Jacksonville Flight Line Caf6 hosted 70
culinary arts students March 26 from Ridgeview
High School in Orange Park. The students visited
the facility to learn about the management of a large gal-
ley and to witness the day-to-day operations involved in
promptly serving hundreds of patrons.
"The first thing we did was explain how we receive our
supplies and show them a dry storeroom to see how every
box is marked up, categorized and how the product is
entered into a controlled inventory from beginning to end,"
said CSCS Bryon French, leading chief petty officer at the
Flight Line Caf6.
"Then we showed them the automation of our records
and expenditures, who takes charge of all the items that
come through and how decisions are made in the day-to-
The students then made their way through the prep
areas to see how the food is prepared each day and the
"breakout boxes" used as a control process for refrigerated
items like meats and dairy products.
"We showed them how every item is tagged and labeled
and the daily execution of putting a meal together and get-
ting it served to the troops," continued French.
As the students rotated through helping Navy culinary
specialists serve hungry lunch patrons, other students
happily enjoyed some tasty "Bubba" burgers. Once the
lunch meal was over, the next stop was the pastry shop
where they learned what it was like to make quality des-
erts in mass quantities.
"It's awesome being here today. I'm not a military kid so
I've never been on a base before and to find out what goes
on in a military kitchen was extremely interesting to me,"
stated Briana White, a senior at Ridgeview High School.
"It's big difference from what we do. We only cook for
about 50 teachers and they cook in much bigger volumes
"We came here today because my students needed to
learn about food service management relating to inven-
tory. So instead of covering this in the classroom, we
thought it would be a great idea to bring them to a large
operation so they would take back more knowledge after
seeing it firsthand," remarked Amy Markey, culinary chef
and instructor at Ridgeview High School.
"I think this is great to show them the possibilities avail-
able to them and options they have outside of school."
The trip was coordinated through the base school liai-

tioned they had a culinary arts class and that they were
interested in visiting our galley. So after a couple phone
calls, everything was arranged," said Mills. "In the future,
we've discussed having them bring some smaller groups
of students to work more closely with our Navy personnel
and learn more aspects of our food service operation."

the school because it provides awareness on both sides. We

The four-player, step-aside

three 9-hole courses, known
as the red, white and blue

awarded for closest to the

USO Executive Director
John Shockley said, "Thank
you all for joining us today
to support USO as we
honor the sacrifices of our
Sailors, Marines, soldiers
and airmen. As you know,
our staff is small, so we are
extremely grateful to every
volunteer who helped make
today's event happen.
"As many of you know,
the USO does not receive
government funding. It
exists solely upon the sup-
port of individuals, corpo-
rations, foundations and
fundraising efforts. The
USO is a non-profit orga-
nization that receives
donations through the
United Way, the Combined
Federal Campaign, the
City of Jacksonville
and various fundrais-

year such as today's Bob
