same is the essential character of
MPRF pilots, NFOs and aircrew.
"The crew of that PBY was not
all that different from the junior
officers here today. They had
similar concerns and were tasked
with difficult missions in a very
challenging time. And like you,
they took the initiative, anticipat-

NAS Jacksonville's weekly news-
paper, the Jax Air News, placed
second in the Metro Category
(civilian enterprise) of the Chief of

newspaper has placed in the awards
competition in the past eight years,
including a first place finish in 2002.

Looking back to 1945...
U.S. Navy photo
Civilian families gather to learn about the Consolidated PBY-5 Catalina at the NAS Jacksonville Air Show. This "fly-
ing boat" patrol bomber was produced from 1936 to 1945, and was not retired from the U.S. Navy until 1957. As the
iconic aircraft of today's maritime patrol and reconnaissance community, the Catalina could be equipped with depth
charges, bombs, torpedos and .50 caliber machine guns.
Accepting the name you're given
By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor I1 ... .. ... .
Dustin and I thoughtfully chose
each of our children's names,
looking to relatives and sur-
names for inspiration. Our first-
born, Ford, is actually named Henry
(after his dad and great grandfather)
Rutherford (my maiden name) Smiley.
The nickname "Ford" comes from
Rutherford and is a nod to Dustin's
grandfather, Henry, who was a
Ford mechanic on Maine Street in
Bangor, Maine; and my dad, Lindell
(notice: also our youngest son's name),
who when I was a teenager might
have been more upset if I bought a
Chevrolet than if I came home with a
tattoo on my face.
Dustin and I have never doubted
our choice about Ford's name. So it
came as a surprise last week when
Ford said, quite vehemently, that he
hates his name. I think his exact
words were, "I'd rather be named any-
thing else in the whole wide world."
"But your name is built Ford tough,"
I said, which wasn't helpful at all.
"Ford didn't take the bailout money,
The ensuing conversation with
Ford about how we chose "Henry
Rutherford" led to a discussion about
family names and then family trees.
This interested Ford, who thinks
graphs and correlations are entertain-
ment. He decided to make his family
First he wrote down all of his
aunt's, uncle's and cousin's names.
That was the easy part. He drew lines
from those names to boxes where he
filled in his grandparents' names. I
was mostly cooking dinner while Ford
did this and only half paying atten-
tion, until he asked me to help with
his great-grandparents' names.
Hey MoneyChic! I'm planning on
doing my 20 years in the Navy and
then retiring. My chief said I should
be contributing to my TSP. If I get
Navy retirement, why do I need to do
MoneyChic says: There are many
factors to consider, such as the type
of lifestyle you are envisioning for
retirement. As a financial coun-
selor, I've had clients who get by
on their military retirement alone.
They typically live in a small apart-
ment and have the very basics for
food. Entertainment would be hav-
ing cable TV programming and typi-
cally using a bicycle for transporta-
tion. If you envision more for yourself

look on during the depart-
ment head meeting at NAS
Jax Officers' Club April 7.
Half of these were my grandpar-
ents, as much a part of my life as
Ford's grandparents are to him now.
Now all but one of them is gone. In
fact, Dustin and I had seven of eight
grandparents at our wedding in 1999.
Four of them lived long enough to
meet Ford. Three met Owen. And only
two have known Lindell. Today, my
grandmother, Doris (her last name,
Thompson, is Owen's middle name)
is the only grandparent Dustin and I
Doris has been like a second mother
to me, and I lived with her and my
grandfather, Big Jack, in Birmingham,
Ala., when I was in school. Big Jack
was a Civil War buff; his idol, Robert
He had already been gone six years
when I had Lindell, but when Dustin
called Doris at 11 o'clock that night
to tell her the name (Lindell Grant
Smiley) we had chosen for our third
child, Doris erroneously believed that
he had said "General Grant Smiley."
The next morning, Doris called my
brother Will and said, "I laid awake
all night thinking of poor Jack, that ol'
bird, turning over in his grave at the
nerve of his granddaughter naming
her son General Grant. Could you ever
imagine such a thing?"
Now it was Doris, my only living
connection to the past, that Ford
wanted to call to get the names of his
great-great-grandparents. Dustin and
I looked at each other and grinned.
"You sure you're ready for this, Ford?"
Dustin said while I dialed the num-
ber. (Dustin knows Doris almost as
well as I do.) "Do you have lots of
paper and a pen ready?"
- and especially if you have a family
- it would be wise to consider invest-
ing in the TSP to supplement your
retirement income. Once you are of
the age (typically 65) you may elect
to receive Social Security which will
also improve your income projections.
But...who is entirely sure if Social
Security will be around for many
more years to come?
Most military retirees are in their
40s, so there is a 20-year gap before
Naturally, I could hear Doris's loud,
familiar voice with a southern twang
coming through the receiver. There
were several fun moments in the
beginning where Doris thought Ford
had said he was making a "family
treat," and Ford said "tree! tree!" as
loud and as slow as someone talking
to a foreigner. Once that was cleared
up, Ford said again, "Can you help
me with the names of my great-great-
"Oh, Honey, well, I don't know
what good I'll be," Doris said. "I can
try, but Lord have mercy it's been a
long time, and well, I hope I can help
you." What followed was a half hour
of Ford patiently listening and occa-
sionally offering a "wow," "uh-huh" or
"mhmm." I heard Doris tell him about
her sister who once swallowed a safety
pin, her mother-in-law who cried like
a grieving widow at her wedding, and
her grandfather who died saving a
carload of people from a train crash.
When Doris was finished, Ford said,
"Well I have learned a lot, Doris."
"I hope you will call me again,
Dear," she said.
"I might not call again real soon,"
Ford said. "But I will call again. This
is a lot to think about."
After Ford hung up the phone, he
said, "It's sad that some day my kids
won't know Doris and maybe not some
of my grandparents, too."
When I tucked Ford into his bed
later that night, I winked as I said
"Henry Rutherford" aloud. He turned
up his nose for moment, but his twin-
kle eyes could not hide his newfound
pride in his family, and thereby, his
Social Security will even be available
to supplement your income. Recently a
poll was conducted which shows only
46 percent of Americans have calcu-
lated how much money they will need
to live comfortably in retirement. Of
those who took the time to do some
retirement calculations, the majority
ended up making changes. Changes
like reducing their debt, contributing
more to investments or deciding to
work longer are the most common.

Tuition assistance transactions shift to WebTA
By Susan Lawson
Center for Personal and Professional Development
All Navy Tuition Assistance

could start the TA application process,
but were then required to circulate a
printed copy for review and approval
through the chain of command. Now,
Sailors and Marines can complete the
entire process virtually. The final step
is the paper-based submission, in per-
son or via fax, to one of the 52 Navy
College Offices (NCO) for delivery to
the school," said Redd-Clary.
The WebTA application must be
approved by the commanding officer
or authorized command delegate.
"We recommend developing an
internal command review process, as
that process will ensure all manage-
ment controls for Sailors' TA require-
ments are met. These requirements,
such as completion of warfare quali-
fications, should all be reviewed prior
to the commanding officer's final
approval," said Redd-Clary.
In addition to TA application pro-
cessing through WebTA, the Navy
College Program site includes tools
required for Sailors to develop an
interactive education plan with direct
support from NCO counselors. The
site also provides Sailors and coun-
selors access to Sailor/Marine Ace
Registry Transcript records. Sailors
can also search degree plans based on
their ratings. These degree plans are
offered through partner schools from
the Navy College Program Distance
"WebTA also offers commands an
opportunity to provide more timely
and interactive support of their
Sailors as they work to identify their
professional and academic pursuits,"

CENSUS 2010 QUICK FACTS
From U.S. Census Bureau
Why does the census need exact birthdates?
A: The Census collects the ages of residents in order
to provide federal agencies with the information nec-
essary for programs that target funds or services to
children, working-age adults, women of childbearing
age, and the older population. The U.S. Department
of Education uses census age data in its formula to
determine state allotments.
In addition, under the Voting Rights Act, data
on the voting-age population is required for legisla-
tive redistricting. Finally, the U.S. Department of
Veterans Affairs uses age to develop its mandated
state projections on the need for hospitals, nursing
homes, cemeteries, domiciliary services and other ben-
efits for veterans.
Why do Sailors have to
provide their phone numbers?
A: For the standard Census form, the Census
Bureau requires phone numbers to clarify data, when
necessary. Some forms are returned illegible or incom-
plete. By providing a phone number, discrepancies
may be addressed over the phone instead of sending a
census worker to your home. Your telephone number is
kept confidential, as are all your responses.
Phone numbers are not required on the Military
Census Report or Shipboard Census Report.
What is the purpose of the census knowing
what race a Sailor is?
A: Information on race is required for many federal
programs and is critical in making policy decisions,
particularly for civil rights. States use these data to
meet legislative redistricting principles. Race data
also are used to promote equal employment opportuni-
ties and to assess racial disparities in health and envi-
What happens next?
A: When you complete your Census Form, your
data will be compiled and final counts will sent to the
White House for apportionment of House Seats and
distribution of approximately $400 billion a year in
If you have not completed your form shortly after
Census Day, April 1, the Census Bureau identifies
addresses from which no response has been received.
A Census worker will be dispatched to your residence
to conduct interviews.
Additionally, a Census worker will return to each
installation to collect census forms for group quarters
and transitory location (i.e. campgrounds, marinas,

NAS Jax Deputy PAO
The Navy's Fleet and Family
Support Centers (FFSC)
were established nearly 31
years ago to help improve the qual-
ity of life of all military members,
retirees and their families.
At NAS Jacksonville, the FFSC
offers numerous services, workshops
and programs to support the con-
stant lifestyle changes of military
personnel and enhance military life.
"We offer a plethora of services for
military members and their families
including retirees and reservists.
I like to tell people to think of us
as a social services agency, actu-
ally a combination of social agen-
cies, because out in town they would
probably have to go to over 12 agen-
cies to get what they can get here
in one place," said FFSC Director
"Whether it's one-on-one counsel-
ing, group sessions and educational
classes on life skills such as parent-
ing, stress or anger management,
financial, budgeting, home and car
buying, resume writing, job search
- you name it if it's in a quality of
life arena, we provide it here. And,
unlike in the outside community,
our services are all free so we don't
have any constraints regarding bill-
ing issues," McCorvey continued.
"And having worked in both are-
nas in the civilian sector and here,
I can tell you that the quality of
services and availability of services
is just exceptional here. It's unfor-
tunate though that sometimes com-
mands and families are not aware of
all the services we provide so that's
been part of our charter to really
get the information out about what
McCorvey is quick to stress that
the FFSC closely partners with out-
side agencies to provide the best ser-
vices to military personnel.
M.in\ of our families don't come
on the base that often so we use
outside agencies to augment our
services and we augment their ser-
vices as well. For example, if Child

The FFSC offers a variety of
classes, workshops and programs
to assist and enhance military life.
The services include crisis response,
deployment support, professional
counseling, life skills education and
relocation assistance, to name a few.
Professional counselors at FFSC
can assist those in need by help-
ing them through personal or fam-
ily issues. By talking to a trained
counselor, a person can gain a new
perspective, confront difficult family
issues and brainstorm alternatives
to dealing with many crisis.

HSL-42 Det supports international exercise

The first month of a regu-

operation on board Ticonderoga-
class cruiser USS San Jacinto
(CG 56) allowed the HSL-42 Det
9 'Ninjees' to build their profes-

Greek military forces during a
joint operations and anti-subma-
rine warfare exercise.
Led by Lt. Cmdr. Mike Lee, the
Ninjees performed close interac-
tion between the participating
nations including swapping ship
personnel and cross-decking air-
craft, as well as coordinated ship,
submarine, and air activities.
During one of the cross-decking
events, an Israeli Defense Force

President Obama remarks
on Navy biofuel program
By Lt. Paul Macapagal
Navy Office of Information
inside Hangar 3 at Joint Base
Andrews, Md., President Barack
Obama announced March 31 his
administration's future plans on ener-
gy security to include the Department of
Navy (DoN) biofuel program.
These plans include strategic efforts by
the Department of Defense to enhance
energy production and promote clean ener-
gy innovation. As part of the Navy Energy
Strategy, the Navy is developing the criti-
cal protocols needed to certify alternative
fuels for use in Naval Tactical systems.
During the president's announcement, an
F/A-18 'Green' Hornet and a Marine Corps
Light Armored Vehicle (LAV), part of the
DoN biofuel program were on display to
demonstrate progress toward energy goals.
"Our military leaders recognize the secu-
rity imperative of increasing the use of
alternative fuels, decreasing energy use,
reducing our reliance on imported oil,
making ourselves more energy-efficient,"
said Obama. "That's why the Navy, led by
Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, who's
here today, has set a goal of using 50 per-
cent alternative fuels in all planes, vehicles
and ships in the next 10 years."
Using alternative fuels and being ener-
gy efficient is primary to Mabus' energy
reform targets for the DoN.
"One of the reasons we are trying to
become energy independent, to the maxi-
mum extent possible, is to make us better
warfighters," said Mabus.
As an environmental and energy con-
cept, the 'Green' Hornet encompasses
efforts ranging from operational and policy
through technology research and develop-
ment. The Navy will demonstrate an F/A-
18 Super Hornet powered by a 50/50 bio-
fuel blend on Earth Day, April 22, at NAS

ground. You took the initiative, you impro-

The MPRF chapter you have written these
past few years will be a proud addition to
the history of this community."
"But there's one part of the MPRF past
we must reinvigorate our ability to find
and track submarines. We need to go
beyond proficiency and make anti-subma-
rine warfare our primacy again.
"When I think about the maritime patrol
community, I recall what Charles Darwin
said, 'It isn't the strongest of the species
that survives, nor the most intelligent, but
the one most responsive to change.' Nobody
has matched your ability to adapt and meet
changing operational demands."
"That's why I'm pleased to see that our
MPRF community will soon receive two
new capable platforms to replace the P-3
Orion: the P-8A Poseidon Multi-Mission
Aircraft and the Broad Area Maritime
Surveillance Unmanned Aerial Vehicle."
"Exciting opportunities lie ahead as you
write the next chapter in your history and
rise to challenges just like your predeces-
sors," concluded Harvey.

work ahead to get ready for arrival of the
first P-8A aircraft at VP-30 in 2012.

this year by all the teams.
"I'm surprised every

everything is different,"
Bracewell said. He and the
other judges not only spoke
about the quality of the
servings but gave critiques
they hoped would better
prepare the cooks for other
competitions. These ranged
from the quality of the food
preparation to plating and
presentation to the ability
to "sell it!"
"As culinary specialists I
know you want to put your
best foot forward every
time. You not only have to
sell it in these competitions
but on the food line every-
day for your shipmates,"

iconic colors of

unusual sight one rainy
night in March as it was
towed down 103rd Street
to Cecil Commerce Center
by the Fleet Readiness

Many people did dou-
ble-takes as the Blue
Angel, freshly painted at
FRCSE, was towed past
NAS Jacksonville's main

Roosevelt Boulevard as off-

Jacksonville Sheriffs Office
cleared the way.
Yet for some who live
along the route, this wasn't
such an uncommon spec-
For many years, Hornets

Jacksonville to Cecil

days, they are being taken
to the Boeing Company's

He said people react in the
"One time we had a man
in his underwear run out
from one of the houses on
Timuquana. He came to
attention and saluted the
airplane," said Guerra.
"We slowed down for a
minute while the cop told
him to back up, and then
we went on our merry way."
On another occasion, he
said a local news station
reported an F/A-18 aircraft
had landed on 103rd Street,
but the story was retracted
the following day when the
TV station learned about
Guerra said people try to
turn their vehicles in front
of the aircraft to take pic-
tures or just to get a bet-
ter view of the extraordi-
nary display. One overzeal-
ous woman almost landed
in the back of a squad car
because of her persistent
"Sometimes it is out of
control," he said. "We don't

because it's a crazy night to

The "Spartans" of
HSM-70 landed one
of their helicopters
on the Daytona Beach
campus of Embry-Riddle
March 25 in support of
the school's NROTC unit.
The three-hour static dis-
play gave the 160 midship-
men of the unit, as well as
numerous other students,
the rare opportunity to see
the navy's newest helicop-
ter from a unique vantage
At 2:30 p.m., Spartan
710, a new MH-60R or
Romeo as the pilots call
them, touched down on
Spruance Field in front
of the college of engineer-
ing building. This evolu-
tion drew a large crowd of
onlookers. The aircraft was
piloted by Lt. Manuel Pardo

the school's NROTC unit to learn about the new MH-60R
and Lt. Bryan Sommer,
along with AWR1 Wesley
Goodwin and AMAN Heath
Wendle serving as aircrew-
man and plane captain
The primary mission of
the flight and static dis-
play was to provide a
hands-on experience for
the Midshipmen to view
the aircraft up close and
ask questions in a relaxed
environment. The opportu-
nity for NROTC students to
have a forum to ask ques-
tions of fleet aircrew is
invaluable to their training
as midshipman. It enables
them to get an inside look
into life in an operational
squadron and to also for-
mulate opinions on the dif-
ferent communities in the
Navy. Aside from being an
educational platform for
the midshipman, Spartan
710 also had the unexpect-
ed effect of shutting down
classes, as professors took
the opportunity to bring
their engineering and aero-
nautics students out to the
field to get some first hand
knowledge of helicopter

has finished about 20 per-

needed to complete their
new administration build-
"We have finished with
the foundation, steel fram-

we can move on to the mor-

Facing minimal problems
with the weather, CBMU's
new administration build-
ing has taken shape right
next to the current building

"We are pretty close to
meeting our deadline if not
even ahead of schedule,
however there is always
a learning curve when
using concrete block,"
said Gilbert. "We expect
to become faster and more
efficient the more we prac-
tice using the materials."
Gilbert continued, "Our
Seabees really enjoy work-
ing on this project because
it's not just a build and

that this project is some-

benefit from generates a

ASK DR JOE
Don't put off colon
By Capt. Joseph McQuade, M.D.
Naval Hospital Jax Public Health Director
Screening patients for cancer is an idea that
continues to gather momentum in our country.
President Richard Nixon actually launched the
idea of a war against cancer in 1969. We haven't won
the war yet, but we continue to find strategies that
seem to help find cancers earlier. Nipping cancers in
the bud is always the best game plan.
Q: How can I best prevent getting colon can-
A: Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of
cancer-related deaths among men and women in the
United States. Only lung cancer
kills more Americans each year.
In 2005, the Centers for Disease
SControl and Prevention estimat-
ed that more than 141,000 peo-
ple were diagnosed with colorec-
tal cancer, and 53,000 people
died from it. Charles Schultz,
Capt. Joseph the famous cartoonist creator of
McQuade, M.D. Charlie Brown never got screened
for colon cancer despite having a
Dad who died of the disease.
Your first colonoscopy should be scheduled at age
50 for white and Hispanic patients, and age 45 for
African-American patients. Caught early, colorectal
cancer can be cured.
Screening rates for colorectal cancer are rising
among adults age 50. In 1997 approximately 25 per-
cent of adults in this age group were screened for
colorectal cancer with the rate rising to 55 percent in
2008 for most Americans.
Naval Hospital Jacksonville recorded 72.5 percent of
its enrolled patients age 50 and older were screened as
of December 2009.
Some cancer experts equate not getting a colonos-
copy after age 50 is much like not getting a mammo-
gram as recommended.
Colon cancer kills more people than breast cancer,
and many more people than cervical cancer, yet how
often is colon cancer screening discussed with you by
your provider at your routine visits?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
challenge physicians to find the time and resources to
educate patients about the options for colorectal can-
cer screening methods and issue patient reminders to
ensure it is not forgotten at routine visits.
Ask your provider about colorectal screening at your
H1N1 not finished
Spike in H1N1 noted in Georgia
From NH lax Public Affairs
Health officials are carefully watching a spike
in cases of the pandemic H1N1 flu in the
Southeastern United States. Georgia's rise in
H1Nl-related hospitalizations-from 17 in the first week
of February to 80 and 72 hospitalizations, respectively,
in the first two weeks of March -is under investigation
by the CDC.
Other Southeastern states are seeing a lesser rise but no
widespread H1N1 illness is being reported in the rest of
the country. Most of the hospitalizations have occurred in
adults with underlying medical conditions that put them at
higher risk for severe influenza.
A possible explanation for the rise in cases in Georgia
may be that the state had a low immunization rate for
2009 H1N1 influenza; as of February, less than 1/3rd of the
state's vaccine had been dispersed.
State and local health officials are boosting their efforts
to immunize residents.
Naval Hospital Jacksonville and its outlying branch
health blinics have been managing an aggressive vaccina-
tion program for H1N1 influenza since the federal govern-
ment decided H1N1 could reach pandemic proportions over
the winter season.
The vaccine is still available at the hospital and its clin-
ics. To be vaccinated just visit your local clinic or Naval
Hospital Jacksonville's Immunization Clinic.

So you enlisted in the
Fleet Forces Command Master Chief
Think back to the day
you first walked into
the recruiter's office
and asked the question,
"I'm thinking about join-
ing the Navy" and "where
do I sign?" Why was it that
you made that trek to the
recruiter's office that day?
Why did you raise your
hand and take the oath to
serve your country?
I would bet that there are
as many answers to these
questions as there are days
in the month.
Some of those reasons
I've listed here education
benefits, job security, pride
and patriotism, adventure,
health benefits, family prior
service, escape from your
environment and more.
Today, future Sailors are
spending up to 12 months
in the Delayed Entry
Program (DEP) having
to report to the recruiting
office at least once a month,
PT, complete academic
courses and virtually main-
tain their "spot" in DEP If
they fail to live up to the
expectations during DEP,
they fall out and someone
else moves in. Competitive?
So what happens after
you raise your right hand?
Eight weeks of recruit
training, instilling in the
new Sailor the ideals of ser-
vice to nation, service to
ship, service to Shipmate
and certainly service to
self. The basic training of
a U.S. Navy Sailor. After
basic training, it's on to
apprentice training or
accession training common-
ly referred to as "A' school.
Then it's on to the fleet
in any one of literally thou-
sands of commands. Here
we have a small, minis-
cule actually, percentage of
Sailors who somehow lose
their dreams, their focus,
their reasons for initially
desiring Navy service. So
I think it's important dur-
ing the initial check-in of a
new member to the team, to
once again recall those rea-
sons, write them down and
ensure we keep them in our
minds. I would bet the rea-
sons may change slightly,
but they mirror these initial
For many, service isn't
what we expected. Rarely

. Is it the basic tenets of success: be
what to do to stay
to work on time; be in the
proper clothes [uniform];
and do the work that you're
required to do, will always
set the initial tone. Do you
come to work on time? Do
you give it your best while
you are there? Are you
within standards? Is the
physical fitness assessment
more than just a twice-a-
year event for you? If you
weren't promoted as a
result of the last test cycle,
did you at least pass the
exam? Did you study? Last,
but not least, what are you
doing to make a differ-
ence at your command and
among your shipmates?
Once you complete your
self-assessment, you are one
step closer to ensuring that
your name is called to stay
on that career path. Next
stop, making a plan. Write
down the goals you need to
achieve to be the best Sailor
you can be. Maybe the first
thing you need to work on
is coming to work on time.
Maybe it's scoring higher
on the advancement exam.
Or, maybe you need to focus
your time on improving
your PFA scores. Whatever
the case, you know where
you need to improve.
Being a squared-away
Sailor is just the beginning,
however. A truly success-
ful Sailor gets involved.
Remember the last question
we asked above -- what are
you doing to make a dif-
ference? Being the best,
means making sure your
shipmates are also striving
to be the best!
Whatever your reasons
for joining the Navy and for
staying Navy, it pays to give
it all you've got while you're
here. Building your plan
and following your plan is
up to you.

This notice is for all purchasers or owners of
Advanced Carbon Composites EXT-001,
EXT-002 and EXT-003 models of motorcycle
helmets, regardless of size and regardless of date
acquired, in accordance with the requirements of the
National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.
In a March 26, 2010 Settlement Agreement
and Consent Order between Advanced Carbon
Composites and the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA), Advanced Carbon
Composites agreed that all models and sizes
of its EXT-001, EXT-002 and EXT-003 Half Shell
Motorcycle Helmets, regardless of date manufac-
tured, fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standard (FMVSS) No. 218, 49 C.F.R. 571.218.
FMVSS No. 218 establishes minimum performance
requirements for helmets designed for highway use.
Among other things, the standard requires that
motorcycle helmets meet the minimum perfor-
mance requirements of penetration tests and impact
attenuation tests, as well as labeling requirements.
Advanced Carbon Composites' helmets do not com-
ply with FMVSS No. 218 in the areas of impact
attenuation, penetration and/or labeling. In the
event of a crash, the wearer is not adequately pro-
tected, and could suffer severe injuries or even death.
As a part of its settlement agreement and consent
order with NHTSA, Advanced Carbon Composites
has agreed to implement a remedy program by which
Advanced Carbon Composites is providing notice to,
and obtaining helmets from, owners and purchas-
ers, and Advanced Carbon Composites will refund
an owner or purchaser for the purchase price of the
helmet. The remedy is limited to refunds to own-
ers or purchasers, and under no circumstances will
Advanced Carbon Composites attempt to repair or
replace the recalled helmets.
What you need to do: After you contact Advanced
Carbon Composite the company will send a prepaid
shipping label for the helmet. Upon receipt of the
helmet and documentation regarding the price paid,
Advanced Carbon Composite will send a check in the
full amount of the purchase price, which should be
received within seven to 10 business days.
This includes all EXT-001 or EXT 002 hel-
mets that were previously repaired by Advanced
Carbon Composites in previous recalls.
Please call Advanced Carbon Composites at 1-800-
300-9813, or contact the company by mail at Advanced
Carbon Composites, 6127 Anno Avenue, Orlando,
Florida 32809, to begin the refund process.
If the company fails to issue a refund within a rea-
sonable amount of time, submit a complaint to:

when it comes to
By Debra Bingham,
Defense Supply Center Richmond Public Affairs
Going out of his way to help co-
workers is business as usual for
James Dixon, a supply techni-
cian at Defense Logistics Agency (DLA)
Jacksonville. He was recently recognized
for his exceptional teamwork although
he's recognized more often as the King of
Rock and Roll -
because his off-duty activities include
impersonating Elvis Presley.
But it was Dixon's star-quality perfor-
mance on the job that earned him the DLA
The Extra-Mile Award program gives
employees an opportunity to recognize
co-workers who provide exceptional sup-
port exceeding the responsibilities of their
position. Award recipients can accumulate
"chits" and redeem them for items ranging
in value from $25 to $100.
"He does things without being asked to
do them. If he sees something that needs to
be done he jumps in and does it. He's also
computer literate and helps us with using
Citrix [XenApp]," said Richard Stump, a
DLA equipment specialist who nominat-
ed Dixon for the award. DLA employees
in Jacksonville rely on XenApp, a server-
based virtual application delivery prod-
uct, to use the DLA applications and tools
that allow them to support Fleet Readiness
Whether it's helping employees with com-
puter navigation or volunteering for special
projects, Dixon said he's happy to do it.
Born and raised in Jacksonville, Dixon
has worked here for 32 years the same
amount of time he's been married. He said
both worked out "pretty good."
"I love my job and I'll do whatever needs
to be done. I'll sweep, do commodes, what-

James Dixon, DLA Jacksonville supply tech-
nician and part-time Elvis impersonator,
was recognized with the Extra-Mile Award
recently for providing exceptional teamwork
and support to his fellow employees in the
ever. It all boils down to respect and hav-
ing the right attitude," Dixon said.
But it takes more than just the right
attitude to be The Memphis Flash it also
takes the right outfit. Dixon has it all: the
white jumpsuit, sideburns, wig and shades.
He participates in Elvis conventions and
takes his act to work during the holidays.
His fascination with all things Elvis is
apparent. It even manifests itself in con-
versation when Dixon delivers the King's
signature "thank you very much," complete
with his special Southern twang and some
of the familiar gestures and stances.
"My big brother liked Elvis' music. I
started listening and it kind of took off
from there. I do it to pump people up and
make them laugh," Dixon said.
A positive mental attitude and enthu-
siasm are part of the strong work ethic
Dixon learned from his father.
"My daddy taught me to do a job and do
it right the first time," Dixon said. He's
also made it his mission to motivate oth-
ers and help wherever needed. His current
project is taking inventory of cables, a time
consuming process of counting items and
matching stock numbers.
"I'm glad I have a job. There are always
changes . and we have to change our
outlook and take it in stride. I like helping
people and looking out for my co-workers,"
The Holocaust was essentially the systematic persecution and elimination of European
Jews by the Nazi Germany and its allies. The Holocaust began with Adolf Hitler's rise to
power in January of 1933 and ended on VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) May 8, 1945.
In 1933, the number of Jews that lived in 21 countries that Germany would occupy
during WWII was approximately nine million. Statistics show that two out of every three
European Jews died during the Holocaust by 1945. Approximately 6 million Jews and 5
million non-Jewish were killed during the Holocaust. The number of children killed
during the Holocaust was 1.5 million. It is hard to believe that 11 million deaths were
racially and hate motivated and took place in 11 years. There are actually two main
phases to the Holocaust, the period between 1933 and 1939, the Nazi rise, and the period
between 1939 and 1945, the period of war, or more specifically, World War II. The
timeline below represent more in detail events that took place during the significant
periods. The pictures are events that follow the timeline from Left (L) to Right (R).

On April 30, 1945 Adolf Hitler commits suicide in his bunker. Before beginning his
assault on Europe, Hitler had assured his followers that the Third Reich which was
Germany during the years of his dictatorship would last 1,000 years. Twelve years later,
in the closing weeks of the Allied liberation, Hitler and Eva Braun (wife) committed
suicide. Red Amy soldiers found charred remains believed to be their bodies in a bomb
crater two days later. However, a German court didn't officially declare Hitler dead, until

Register for All-Military Wilderness Challenge
Registration is open for the Mid-Atlantic Region,
Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR)
Department's 10th annual all-military Wilderness
Challenge. The Wilderness Challenge takes place, Oct.
7-9, in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains and on
the New and the Gauley Rivers in West Virginia. The
event is hosted and co-organized by ACE Adventure
Resort, West Virginia's largest outdoor outfitter.
More than 300 military people representing teams from
around the world are expected to compete. Only the first
60 teams will compete, so teams are encouraged to regis-
"The MWR Wilderness Challenge continues to bring
together the best athletes in the armed forces and puts
them to the test," said Michael Bond, event coordinator.
"The competition gets tougher and tougher every year."
Bond encourages teams to register early to reserve their
space in the competition.
The challenge contains a series of five outdoor adventure
races in a team format designed to bring camaraderie,
competition and team spirit between all five branches of
the Armed Services. Teams participating in this year's
challenge will compete in an sK mountain run, 14-mile
mountain bike race, 14-mile forced hike through the moun-
tains, 13-mile whitewater raft race on the Gauley River
and a 7-mile kayak race on the New River.
"The Army and the Navy have yet to win the Wilderness
Challenge," Bond stated. "This is a great opportunity for a
team from one of these services to step up and win big. It's
not an easy competition and only the strong survive, so the
winning team will be the best of the best in outdoor recre-
ation and physical endurance."
Registration is open to all branches of the military.
Teams must be comprised of four active duty military, one
of which must be female. Registration can be made online

As part of the National Defense Authorization
Act (NDAA) 2010 that was enacted by
Congress on Oct. 28, 2009, the National
Security Personnel System (NSPS) authority was
repealed. Congress has instructed that the Secretary
of the Defense take action to terminate the NSPS
and convert all employees and positions from the
system no later than Jan. 1, 2012.
Command leadership and human resource profes-
sionals will assist Department of the Navy's (DoN)
NSPS employees as they transition to the General
Schedule (GS) this year. Because of the short time
frame allowed for the transition, employees transition-
ing in 2010 will not be eligible for a 2011 NSPS perfor-
mance payout. They will be eligible for all recognition
and rewards within the GS system.
Questions and answers:
Q: Does this mean NSPS will go away:
A: Yes, the enactment of the NDAA 2010 means that
all DoN NSPS employees will be transitioning out
of NSPS. Until your NSPS organization transitions,
NSPS rules will continue to apply.
Q: Will I lose pay when I transition out of NSPS?
A: No, NDAA requires the transition of employees to
occur with no loss in pay.
Q: When is my organization transitioning out of
A: The DoN has been working with command lead-
ership on a schedule to ensure a smooth and orderly
transition out of NSPS. Command NSPS program
managers will let you know when your organization is
scheduled to transition. The first transitions are ten-
tatively schedule for April.
Q: When will I be notified of my transition date?
A: The NSPS Transition Office is reviewing pro-
posed transition plans and timelines. Once plans
are approved, employees will be advised through
their component channels of the transition date. The
department's goal is to have the majority of employees
transitioned from NSPS by Sept. 30, 2010.
