NAS Jax recognized for excellence


By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO


NAS Jacksonville was
selected as the third-
place winner of the
2010 Commander in Chief's
Installation Excellence Award.
The station finished in the top-
three among a field of 76 nomi-
nees worldwide.
In his April 9 announcement,
Secretary of Defense Robert M.
Gates noted, "Our military ser-
vices' commitment to installation
excellence enables better mis-
sion performance and enhances
the quality of life for our military
men and women and their fami-
lies. Each winning installation
succeeded in providing excellent
working, housing and recreational
conditions."
Placing first in the competition
was Naval Base San Diego, fol-
lowed by NAS Whidbey Island.
In a congratulatory message
to command personnel, NAS
Jacksonville Commanding Officer

Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. said, "I
could not be more proud of the
team effort that led to third place


among 76 installations from 11
regions. Your innovative support
for the fleet, fighter and family,


along with your focus on the Chief
of Naval Operation's (CNO) Global
Maritime Strategy to address cur-


rent challenges in supporting the
naval aviation community, was
paramount in the preparation of
an outstanding awards package."
"In 2009, NAS Jax provided
superior support to our naval
aviation warfighters and their
families in order for the Navy to
sustain a successful forward pres-
ence around the world. Together,
you planned and flawlessly exe-
cuted $350 million in construc-
tion, the HS helicopter squad-
ron to HSM helicopter maritime
strike squadron transition, and
the relocation of four P-3 squad-
rons from NAS Brunswick,
Maine," Scorby continued.
"Furthermore, you initiated
strategic energy conservation
measures, proactive environ-
mental stewardship, Lean-Six
initiatives, and other quality of
life projects that solidified the air
station's role in carrying out the
CNO's Global Maritime Strategy.
I'm continually in awe of the

NAS Jacksonville and the North-

cil hosted the fifth bi-annual
Individual Augmentee (IA) Appreciation
Luncheon April 13 at the NAS Jax
Officers' Club. The event, honoring 96
IAs and 41 spouses from the base and
tenant commands, was kicked off with
welcoming remarks by NAS Jax Com-
manding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
"This IA lunch is for you. We honor
your service, your sacrifice and your ded-
ication. I attend a lot of events through-
out the year, but this is the one I'm most
proud of to be able to say 'thank-you' to
all of you," Scorby told the IAs.
"We live in a nation today that looks
for heroes in entertainment and sports
but you are the ones who are the real
heroes. You are the ones at the pointy

you enough for what you do."
"I also want to recognize the spouses
who are truly the unsung heroes in all
this. You are the ones left holding down
the homefront so our Sailors can go on
these tours and I can't thank you enough
for all that you do because family readi-
ness and combat readiness are tied hand
in hand," Scorby continued.

The Navy opened Naval Air Station Lee Field in 1940 to honor Ensign Bejamin Lee who lost his life in a crash
in Killinghome, England during World War I. Here, SNC-1 Falcon aircraft assigned to Training Squadron VN-12
line the tarmac at Lee Field to help to meet the growing need for pilot training. The Navy ordered a total to 305
SNC-1 Falcons (advanced training monoplanes) built by Curtiss-Wright Corporation. During World War II, Lee
Field was renamed Naval Auxiliary Air Station (NAAS) Green Cove Springs. It was decommissioned in 1960 and
is now part of Reynolds Industrial Park.

The funny things that kids say

By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor 1 ..... II. .


There are some things a moth-
er never wants to overhear
between her children. When
the kids are young, this can be
things like,
"Wow, Mom is going to be so mad at
you when she sees this."
"Oh my gosh, look at the toilet!"
"I just ate something off the stairs."
"Don't tell dad."
"Quick, hide it over there."
"It wasn't me."
As the children get older and ven-
ture out on their own, mothers become
even more paranoid about accidentally
overhearing things they were better
off not knowing. (Really, do you want
to know what happened to that mail-
box? And hadn't your life been just
fine without knowing who dented the
car?) Even though my kids are still
young, I know this parenting phenom-
enon to be true because I've watched
the way my mom closes her eyes and
puts a hand to her chest when she
hears me or my brothers begin sto-
ries with, "Remember that time when
," or "I can't believe we never got
in trouble for
Perhaps the worst thing a parent
can overhear, however, is what her
children say about their family in
public or to other parents.
"My mom thinks you are ______."
"Mommy's wearing Spandex under
her dress."
"We ate at fast food restaurants two
times last week."
"My dad thinks your _____ is

Once, when Ford was little, he said
out loud to a group of people that he
wants to be choosey about whom he
marries. "They will need to like the
same things I like," he said. And then,
before we could stop him, he contin-


Hey, MoneyChic: I've got a fam-
ily of six now that my wife has given
birth to our fourth child. With my
wife on maternity leave, finances are
extremely tight. Even stretching the
paycheck to cover groceries can be a
difficult. We already cut coupons and
qualify for assistance with WIC. Do
you have any other ideas or tips?
MoneyChic says: Congratulations
on a new addition to your family.
Supporting a family of six on one pay-
check can certainly be a challenge.
Here are two additional local
resources that are worth knowing
about when it comes to supplementing


ued this verbal stream of conscious-
ness to say that being married to one
person for the rest of your life is a
really big deal, and so you want to
pick that person carefully because
"you don't want to be miserable."
Dustin and I glanced nervously at
each other.
Then Ford said, "Imagine coming
home every day to a miserable wife."
"I can not even begin to imagine
that," Dustin said.
Sometimes, you wonder where they
come up with these things. Other
times, it is quite clear. When Owen
was a toddler, he told a new friend,
"I had to wait in the car while my
parents got married." This wasn't
entirely true. Owen did wait in a car
with my mom while I stood in my best
friend's wedding. But Dustin and I
had already been married several
years by then. On another occasion,
Ford told a relative that he is "always"
(a gross exaggeration) late for school
because "my mom likes to sleep in."
I overslept one time when he was in
kindergarten.
I thought my children had mostly
outgrown this embarrassing stage,
when there is no such thing as a fam-
ily secret, until my neighbor Tony told
me that our youngest son, Lindell,
claimed to like Tony's house better
than ours because it is "calm and
quiet." (Never mind that Lindell is
probably the loudest individual in our
home.)
Luckily, however, it isn't always
us who our children embarrass. The
other day, I helped Ford with a school
writing assignment and noticed that
he had used the word "might've." This
was uncharacteristic for Ford, who
tends to favor proper English for slang

groceries for your family:
Angel Food Ministries Angel Food
is an organization run out of various
local churches. Orders must be placed
each month; typically an order costs
$20. On delivery day, you pick up your
order, which is worth much more than
the $20 you paid. Visit www.angel-
foodministries.com to view with vari-
ety of packages for order as well as

S.H.A.R.E. This nonprofit pro-
gram is centered on the philosophy
of people helping people and mak-
ing a positive difference in the world.
There are no income requirements,


or lazy contractions. I pointed to the
word and said, "Can you think of a
better way to write this? Does this
look correct to you?"
Ford looked confused.
"Do you see this often in your
books?" I asked. "You might hear
people say 'might have' this way, but
how often do you see it written as a
contraction when it's not part of dia-
logue?"
Ford's face brightened, even as he
was already erasing the word. "Oh, I
guess I was thinking of how Memaw
[my mother] says things like 'useto-
could' and 'oughtta'," he said.
I thought of my mother, who was
raised in the South, had a career as a
Navy wife (the old-school days when a
service member was "graded" on his
wife's participation) and once sent my
boys a book of "proper manners." She
would be exceptionally embarrassed
to know that her grandson had quoted
her as saying "usetocould." The irony
caused me to chuckle. I was glad that
this time, at least, the joke wasn't on
me.
And then I read more of Ford's writ-
ing assignment.
"My family is c-r-a-z-y!" he wrote.
He went on to describe us as loud and
semi-dysfunctional.
I gulped as I felt my ears burn with
embarrassment. So long as we were
on the topic of word choice and gram-
mar, however, I used this opportunity
to teach Ford another writing lesson:
"Crazy? What does that word mean
to you, Ford? Isn't it a little overused?
Can't you think of something more
descriptive, more creative? How about,
'My family is p-h-e-n-o-m-e-n-a-l?' Or
'normal?'
Do you know that word?"


any one may participate. To take part
in the program, you must volunteer
two hours in a month helping your
community. Volunteering may be as
simple as cutting a neighbors grass
or babysitting for someone whose hus-
band is deployed. They also require
customers to place an order (all to
know how much food to accumulate.)
The basic package offered each month
is $18, but you receive $36 worth of
food. Visit www.shareflorida.org for
more information.
Hopefully these local resources will
help stretch those dollars budgeted for
groceries.

New designer drugs, same policy

Fleet Readiness Center Southeast Commanding Officer Capt. Paul Sohl presents Steve Kohn

Kohn receives CO



coin for civic actions


By Marsha Childs
FRCSE Public Affairs

S teve Kohn, a plant services elec-
trician at Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast (FRCSE) was honored
April 12 at the facility for his extraordi-
nary efforts that led to the apprehension
of a suspect involved in a hit-and-run
accident on the Buckman Bridge Feb. 27.
FRCSE Commanding Officer Capt. Paul
Sohl presented Kohn with his command-
er's coin for his exemplary public service
when he notified the police of an erratic
driver who minutes later struck an SUV
- causing it to tumble over the side of the
Buckman Bridge and killing the driver.
But Kohn's extraordinary actions did not
stop there. He continued to follow the vehi-
cle for 20 minutes to an apartment com-
plex where police subsequently arrested the
suspect who was later charged with DUI
manslaughter and leaving the scene of an
accident.
Sohl said there are three things that
make a good leader: courage, compassion
and character. He said Kohn's actions
exemplfied all three, and his actions war-
ranted public recognition.
"This coin is given for outstanding


achievement. Steve made the call, he
alerted the police and then he followed
the woman for more than 20 miles. I can't
think of a better example of courage and
compassion. It is a reflection of his charac-
ter," said Sohl.
At the gathering of his co-workers in the
carpenter shop, Kohn remained humble
about his good deed.
"They had to surprise me or I wouldn't
have shown up," he said. "I think I have
been in the spotlight enough."
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office recog-
nized Kohn with a certificate of apprecia-
tion March 25 for his civic involvement in
a case that may have gone unsolved but
for his efforts to alert police and follow the
suspect.
Kohn was shocked at the eerie sight of
the gold SUV disappearing over the side of
the bridge and plunging into the river. He
tries not to think about the accident.
"It is something you don't see everyday,"
he said, "and there are no words to describe
it."
Plant Services Division Director Bill
Murray said not only is Kohn a hero out-
side the division, but also a hero inside
with his involvement in continuous process
improvement.


News conference
hosted April 12
by Navy Region
Southeast staff outside
the main gate of NAS
Jacksonville drew atten-
tion to designer drugs that
are legal in the civilian
community but illegal for
military service members.
"Commander Navy
Region Southeast Rear
Adm. Townsend Alexander
announced a policy in
February identifying the
types of substances that
cannot be used or pos-
sessed by region service
members," said Cmdr. Flo
Yuzon, executive officer of
Region Legal Service Office
Southeast. "On March 25,
the CNO issued a statement
reaffirming that. We are
grateful for the opportunity
today to raise the aware-
ness of Sailors and the
civilian community for this
new breed of controlled sub-
stances."
New designer drugs,
both accessible and legal
within the civilian commu-
nity, are punishable under
the Navy's Uniform Code
of Military Justice. They
include Salvia Divinorum,
Mitragyna Speciosa
Korth, Spice, Blue Lotus,
Convolvulaceae Argyreia
Nervosa, Amanitas
Mushroom, Lysergic
Acid Amide, Datura,
Tryptamines, and Mate de
Coca.
"Service members who
use or are in possession of
these drugs will be auto-
matically processed for
administrative separation,"
said Southeast Regional
Command Master Chief
Joseph Curtin. "From
there, other consequences
will be determined accord-
ing to the offense."
The dangers associated
with these man-made drugs
are a strong reminder that

the service's drug abuse

Fitch named M


pharmacy


technician


of the year

By Loren Barnes
NH Jax Public Affairs

N aval Hospital Jacksonville (NH
Jax) Pharmacy Technician HM3
Shanisha Fitch was recently hon-
ored as Navy Medicine's Pharmacist
Technician of the Year. The award
focused on the work she performed while
deployed aboard the USS Kearsarge
(LHD-3) during Operation Continuing
Promise 2009.
"I didn't even know I had been put in
for this award. It's an understatement to
say I was excited," Fitch said. "Although
it wasn't an Oscar, it means a lot to me,"
she said. It was her experience caring
for people during in Operation Continuing
Promise 2009 that really meant so much
though. "It was more than words can
express... I'd love to go back on the next
deployment, not for the recognition, but
for the experience and being able to help
people."
One of hundreds of volunteers from
numerous government and non-govern-
ment medical organizations from around
the world, Fitch and 17 other Individual
Augmentees (IAs) from NH Jax spent 120
days during last summer's mission taking
high-quality medicine to numerous ports
of call in the Caribbean and Central and
South America.
One stop that stuck with her was Haiti.
Called to Haiti following the aftermath of
a devastating tropical storm, Fitch recalled
seeing bodies floating in the water and the
terrible conditions the people lived in. Now
after the recent earthquake that left the
country in ruins, she said she would really
like to return to help the Haitian people
again.
People like Fitch bring hope to those in
need. She recalled working long hours in
sweltering, rudimentary and difficult envi-
ronments in many of the countries they vis-
ited. They saw first-hand the poorest of the
poor struggling to survive in often appall-

care. Health issues virtually eliminated in
more developed countries are still big prob-
lems in many of these areas.

ications in many of the regions they vis-
ited also helped de-worm more than 7,000
children, saw more than 300 in sick call,
and cross-trained on the ship's ward and
in surgery. Despite working long hours,
she recalled there were always people they
couldn't see during their short stays, many
of whom had walked for days to reach this

plight, Fitch said, the people were gener-

always said "thank you."

NAVAIR top performers


graduate from leadership/


management programs


By FRCSE Public Affairs
Naval Air Systems Command
(NAVAIR) held a command wide
graduation ceremony April 8 for
56 employees who completed the rigorous
requirements for the leadership and execu-
tive management development programs.
Fleet Readiness Center Southeast
(FRCSE) graduates completing the Senior
Executive Management Development
Program (SEMDP) included Jeffrey Lockard
and Karl Voigt who also earned the NAVAIR
Leadership Development Program (NLDP)
certification.
Voigt, an electrical engineer, started the
SEMDP in 2004, but switched to the NLDP
pathway after being activated in the Army
Reserve for two tours, the latter in 2008 as a
colonel serving in Baghdad, Iraq.
Other NLDP graduates included Kelly
Marlow, a certified Lean Six Sigma Master
Black Belt assigned to NAVAIR Patuxent
River, Md., but working in Jacksonville, and
Monty Pearce of FRCSE.
Pearce completed the leadership track and
said the training was outstanding. He par-
ticularly enjoyed the Capitol Hill Workshop,
which he attended during the 2008 presiden-
tial campaign.


NAVAIR Assistant Commander for
Corporate Operations and Total Force Gary
Kurtz said these graduates gained insights
and experiences that will be useful through-
out their careers.
"We all have a responsibility to develop
our leadership skills," he said. "This is not
an ending but a beginning; leverage what
you have learned."
Keynote speaker Rear Adm. Donald
Gaddis, commander of the Naval Air
Warfare Center, aircraft division, said we
live in a hyper-turbulent environment, and it
is NAVAIR's job to make order out of chaos.
He urged the graduates to get back to basics,
starting with a solid engineering foundation.
"I urge you all to take the lead and shape
the dialogue in our environment," he said.
The SEMDP is now combined under the
NLDP to provide two leadership tracks:
the Management Leadership Track which
takes three to five years (part-time) and
the Continuous Process Improvement
Leadership Track which takes two to three
years (full-time).
For more information about eligibility cri-
teria or the application process, contact your
local NLDP site coordinator. For FRCSE,

The MQ-8B Fire Scout Vertical Take-off and Landing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (VTUAV) hovers over the flight deck of the
guided-missile frigate USS Mclnerney (FFG 8). The embarked Fire Scout VTUAV was operated and maintained by a team from
NAS Jacksonville-based HSL-42 Det 7, the Navy Fire Scout Program Office, and Northrop Grumman Corporation. Mclnerney
recently returned to NS Mayport from the Eastern Pacific where it performed its final counter-illicit trafficking deployment to
Latin America, prior to its decommissioning after 30 years of service.

Fire Scout, 'Proud Warriors,' mark first drug bust


From U.S. 4th Fleet Public Affairs

during a routine test flight, an
MQ-8B Fire Scout Vertical
Take-off and Landing
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (VTUAV)
supported its first drug interdic-
tion April 3 in support of guided-
missile frigate USS McInerney (FFG
8) and a U.S. Coast Guard Law
Enforcement Detachment (USCG
LEDET).
An air vehicle operator (AVO)
from NAS Jacksonille-based HSL-
42 "Proud Warriors" Detatchment 7
launched the embarked Fire Scout
from McInerney to test functions and
settings when it acquired a suspect-
ed narcotics "go-fast" vessel on radar.
The mission payload operator com-
pleted testing and received permission


to pursue. Over the course of three
hours, Fire Scout, using its sophisti-
cated optics and extremely small pro-
file, was able to maintain an unprec-
edented covert posture while feeding
real-time video back to McInerney.
Fire Scout continued to capture
video of the go-fast meeting with a
fishing vessel for what appeared to
be a refueling and logistics transfer.
McInerney and its embarked USCG
LEDET moved in and seized approxi-
mately 60 kilos of cocaine and caused
the suspected traffickers to jettison
another approximately 200 kilos of
narcotics.
Fire Scout was deployed on board
McInerney in the Eastern Pacific
since October 2009. McInerney
and embarked HSL-42 Det. 7 were
deployed for U.S. Naval Forces


Southern Command (NAVSO) in
the U.S. Southern Command area of
responsibility conducting counter illic-
it trafficking (CIT) operations in sup-
port of Joint Interagency Task Force-
South. The Fire Scout VTUAV was
operated and maintained by a team
from HSL-42 Det. 7, the Navy Fire
Scout Program Office, and Northrop
Grumman Corporation.
NAVSO is the naval component com-
mand for U.S. Southern Command
and is responsible for all Naval per-
sonnel and assets in the area of
responsibility. NAVSO conducts a
variety of missions in support of the
Maritime Strategy, including Theater
Security Cooperation, relationship
building, humanitarian assistance
and disaster response, community
relations, and CIT operations.

HSL-42, Fire Scout

return from first

operational deployment

By MC2 Daniel Gay
Navy Public Affairs Support Element East Detachment Southeast.
The MQ-8B Fire Scout, a Vertical Takeoff and
Landing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (VTUAV),
returned to NS Mayport April 15 from its first
operational deployment aboard guided-missile frigate
USS McInerney (FFG 8). The ship completed a six-
month deployment to the U.S. Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM) area of responsibility.
Operated and maintained by NAS Jacksonville-
based HSL-42 Det. 7, Fire Scout is an autonomously
controlled helicopter used to scan waters for drug
smugglers. AECS(AW/SW) Stephen Diets, the fleet
liaison for Fire Scout and one of the first enlisted air
vehicle operators (AVO), said, "Fire Scout has the
advantage of being able to hover unlike traditional
unmanned aerial vehicles."
McInerney was the first ship to make a drug bust
using a VTUAV with a drug interdiction April 3.
Fire Scout was on a post-maintenance check flight
when the operators spotted suspected narcotics smug-
glers. "We got the first Fire Scout drug bust on the
deployment, it was very exciting, and it's mostly
thanks to all the hard work by the air detachment's
maintainers," said Diets.
"It's one of the Navy's newest systems, we brought
it to bear on the mission, and it has challenged us
to think in new ways to accomplish our goals," said
McInerney Commanding Officer Cmdr. Paul Young.
The ship's crew also shared in the excitement of the
bust. "It's exciting to make a bust, when you stop the
drugs and put people in jail it really defines our whole
mission, it makes it all worth being out here, and this
bust was groundbreaking," said CMDCM John Lawry,
the ship's command master chief.
While on deployment, Fire Scout was kept up and
running thanks to the maintenance crew of HSL-
42 Det. 7, who served as McInerney's air sup-
port. According to Lt. Tobias Walters, lead AVO with
the "Proud Warriors," Fire Scout performed well dur-
ing its first deployment.
"I think the deployment was a success, we were able
to operate in a shipboard environment and even got
the first successful drug bust, I think we proved that
Fire Scout is an asset that can bring the Navy success
in the future," said Walters.
Fire Scout can reach speeds of up to 85 knots, reach
altitudes of 20,000 feet and fly for more than six hours
on one tank of fuel. It has officially completed its first
operational deployment and according to Walters, it is
a technology that will integrate well with today's -and
tomorrow's Navy.

ANGLERS WORK


SHARD TO HOOK


BIGGEST BASS

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO

Shile many were home h still -1..t ii4 Saturday morn-
//ing, 80 anglers headed to the Mulberry Cove Marina
.to participate in the 28th annual NAS Jax Morale,
Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Bass Tournament, "Relocating
-. IConfused Bass Since 1982."
"This is a great tournament. In fact, when I was talking to the
anglers early today, them mentioned that this was the most fun
I tournament because we have the food and ',:. i and great
door prizes. They said that it was obvious that we enjoy putting
this on every year," said Mulberry Cove Marina Manager Phil
Collins.
The event held on the St. Johns River, was open to all active
duty members, reservists, retirees and Department of Defense
I' civilians. Teams consisted of two members per boat and they
Fished from first light until late into the afternoon.
The St. Johns Bass Adsl. i, Club officiated the event. In the
_Z... afternoon, as each team's catch was i-, il.j, .1 a crowd began to
gather around the scoreboard. The lead changed many times as
o .everyone enjoyed free food and'.. I, L provided by MWR.
"This is an awesome event, I love it. It's a great thing that
MWR puts on and I really enjoy it," said NC1 Todd Mowery of
Navy Recruiting District Jax. "We burned a tank and a half of
I gas today. We started here, headed to Black Creek and worked
.A 'f our way all down to Crescent Lake which is south of Palatka. We
covered a lot of miles today."
"This is a great tournament but it was a little rough out
there today especially coming in," added Andrew Bass of Fleet
Readiness Center Southeast. "I really appreciate MWR putting
this event on for us."
All participants received a free tournament shirt and sponsor
bag with promotional items.
Thanks to the very generous support from
area businesses, the anglers received more
than $2,500 in door prizes and gift certificates.
NAS Jacksonville MWR thanks the many volunteers and spon-
sors that made this event a success: Berkley, North Florida

depth and breadth of all that you do. Again, congratula-
tions and thank you for your superb award-winning per-
formance!" said Scorby.
Commander, Navy Region Southeast Rear Adm. Tim


Alexander also
extended his appre-
ciation to regional
commands for their
submissions.
"Each year, we
have an opportu-
nity to recognize the
excellence of shore
installations that
step beyond the day-
to-day challenges
and excel in provid-
ing the best service
to the fleet, fighter
and family. The qual-
ity of submissions
from the installa-
tions, as well as the
tremendous efforts of
our people in support
of our nation, our
Navy, and our instal-
lations, is inspiring.
Your accomplish-
ments, given limited
resources, exempli-
fies a 'can do' spirit
that I have found
so prevalent dur-
ing my visits around
the region," said
Alexander.
"It gives me great
pleasure to congratu-
late NAS Jacksonville


FAST FACTS

In 1985, President Ronald
Reagan established the
Commander in Chief's Annual
Award for Installation Excellence
(CINC Award). Accordingly, the
Department of Defense initiat-
ed service-wide competition on
behalf of the President.
The President challenged
the men and women of the
Department of Defense to search
for installations where person-
nel do the best job with their
resources to support the mission,
and to seek out the most imagina-
tive solutions to the many com-
plex problems they face.
To quote the President, "I
am confident that this search
for excellence and innovations
will yield many new and better
ways of accomplishing our mis-
sion and, at the same time, honor
those whose dedication has pro-
duced the best defense organiza-
tion in the world."
In meeting the President's chal-
lenge, the Navy, Marine Corps,
Army, Air Force and DLA con-
duct their own intra-service com-
petitions. Valuable benefits from
this program include recognition
for excellence, creative manage-
ment, problem-solving ideas and
innovation leadership.

Installation Excellence Award Third Place Winner.
Congratulations to Capt. Jack Scorby and his folks. I look
forward to more great achievements in the future."

and cultural resources,"
said Alexander. "The Navy
will continue its evolution
toward a green fleet and its
commitment to a high stan-
dard of stewardship. I urge
all personnel to conserve
energy, protect the environ-
ment and participate in your
local Earth Day events."
NAS Jacksonville, NAS
Pensacola, NAS New
Orleans and Naval Seabee
Base Gulfport already have
activities planned to foster
environmental stewardship
on their bases April 22.
NAS Jax Commanding
Officer Capt. Jack Scorby
Jr. said, "One of my prime
responsibilities is ensuring
we're good stewards of the
environment. We appreciate
each volunteer who takes
part in this annual event.
We value their concern for
the environment not just
today, but every day."
NAS Jacksonville holds
an annual shoreline cleanup
along the St. Johns River,
designated an 'American
Heritage River' by the U.S.
Environmental Protection
A'-.-rln.-v.
The American Heritage
Rivers initiative has three
objectives: natural resource
and environmental protec-
tion, economic revitalization,
and historic and cultural
preservation.

Earth Day 2010 theme of
'Partnering for a Greener
Future,' Navy Region
Southeast is a member of
the Gulf of Mexico Alliance,
the South Atlantic Alliance,
the Southeast Partnership of
Planning and Sustainability,
as well as many other local
and regional partnerships.
According to Southeast
Region Environmental
Program Manager Camille
Destafney, partnerships
provide the opportunity to
learn partners' values and
missions, and to educate
them on the Navy's mission,


resulting in greater under-
standing and opportunities
to further all missions while
protecting the environment.
"Over the past 40 years,
the Navy has made huge
strides in environmental
stewardship and protection
of our natural resources,"
said Destafney.


"Forty years ago, no one
understood hazardous sub-
stances and the impact
they have on health; today
we understand that and
have laws in place to regu-
late them. The Navy has
embraced and become a
leader in the environmental
movement."

the changes."
He added, "Collectively,
the Navy is the largest
employer in Duval County
- and our public school sys-
tem is the second-largest.
A significant number of
our students' parents are
active-duty or civilians
who work for the Navy, so I
think that cooperation and
communication among our
communities is very impor-
tant because we all serve
the same families."
Dr. Phyllis Ingram of
St. Johns County School
District asked Scorby if the
Navy was finding enough
qualified high school gradu-
ates.
"I was somewhat sur-


prised when he said that
obesity and lack of physical
fitness make four out of 10
prospective enlistees ineli-
gible to join. He added that
with the current economy,
the Navy can afford to be
more selective about the
men and women it recruits."
Ellen Rubens, principal of
Venetia Elementary School
- the closest public school
to NAS Jacksonville said,
"About 25 percent of our
school population is Navy
dependents, so it's very
important for me to learn
more about base activities
and family support services
that are available at NAS
Jacksonville. Capt. Scorby's
briefing was very eye open-
ing I had no idea there
were so many different


units on this base."
Rubens added, "Dawn
Mills, the NAS Jacksonville
school liaison officer who
planned our tour, is a valu-
able community resource.
I'm also grateful for the
many Sailors and family
members who volunteer at
our school. Most recently,
Navy volunteers cooked a
delicious breakfast for our
kids prior to taking the
FCAT assessment test."
After the commanding
officer's briefing, the visi-
tors toured Fleet Readiness
Center Southeast. They
also stopped by Hangar
1000 to tour a P-3C Orion
maritime patrol air-
craft assigned to the 'Red
Lancers' of VP-10 and
speak with Sailors about


their naval careers.
NAS Jacksonville
Command Master Chief
Jeff Hudson and other
Sailors then hosted the
group for lunch at the
Flight Line Caf6.

toured the Level D and TORT simulators,
were briefed on the history and capabilities
of the P-3, and were given an anti-subma-
rine warfare demonstration off the coast
of Jacksonville. Of the 12 representatives,
half have civil aviation experience and all
have a keen interest in naval aviation.
The YPO is very experienced with the
business world. Throughout their visit,
members were impressed by the profession-
alism of VP-5 Sailors and were comparing
their corporate experience with the Navy.
The YPO members were particularly
interested in learning about the profession-
al development that the Navy and naval
aviation allows.
Like the Navy, their organization pro-
vides their members with access to unique
experiences, world-class resources, alli-
ances with top learning institutions and
specialized networks to enhance their busi-


ness, community and personal leadership.
Both the Navy and the YPO provide pro-
fessional development to its members, the
chance to travel, a core value system, and
leadership training/mentorship at every
level.
Also, the Navy and the YPO both place
a significant amount of value on educa-
tion. The Navy wants Sailors and officers
that can both learn and teach because the
Navy's demanding missions and high-tech
work environment demand it.
Similarly, the YPO wants young profes-
sionals who excel in an ever evolving, tech-
nological environment.
All the YPO members expressed their
delight in the opportunity to experience a
small portion of what military life is like
for Sailors in VP-5.
The YPO is an elite non-profit organiza-
tion made up of company presidents from
around the world.
For membership, the CEO must have
at least 50 full-time employees, the corpo-
ration must have an enterprise value of
$10,000,000, and the CEO's application
must be approved before his 45th birthday.


On a beautiful day
with clear skies,
the BOQ Pavilion
on board NAS Jacksonville
saw Navy Reservists and
their families arrive in
droves April 17 for the
annual Pre-Deployment
Family Readiness
Conference (PDFRC) host-
ed by Navy Operational
Support Center (NOSC)
Jacksonville.
In keeping with the motto
of the Navy Reserve ready
now, anytime, anywhere
-PDFRCs were mandat-
ed by Commander, Navy
Reserve Force as a means
to enhance overall Reserve
readiness, and are designed
to provide the tools and
resources needed to prepare
reservists and their fami-
lies for mobilizations and
deployments should one
occur in the near future.
"In recent years the Navy
has come to the realiza-
tion that family readiness
is an important contributor
to combat readiness," said
Capt. Robert McKenna,
commanding officer, Navy
Operational Support Center
(NOSC) Jacksonville.
"Having the benefit of
coming to one forum that
can totally prepare them
[the reserve family] for the
deployment of a loved one
. .is why we decided to
establish Pre-Deployment
Readiness Conferences."
The conference featured
presentations by Fleet and
Family Support Center
(FFSC), Military One
Source and the American

Jacksonville.


Legion. Informational work-
shops on financial counsel-
ing, parenting, pre-deploy-
ment checklists, Operation
Military Kids and TriCare
were also scheduled
throughout the day.
Commenting on the role
of his organization, FFSC
Financial Educator Rufus
Bundrige said "the Fleet
and Family Support Center
prepares Sailors and fam-
ily members by informing
them of the financial issues
that they probably wouldn't
otherwise think about until
after being deployed."
It was a sentiment echoed
by attending reservist YN3
Vernardo Spear.
"As a junior Sailor I don't
know everything I need to
get ready for a deployment,"
Spear said, "but all this
great information is prepar-
ing me by showing me what
I can look forward to and
prepare for now rather than
waiting for the last minute."


Like many reserve fami-
lies, Krystal Lake, her hus-
band, Lt. Kenny Lake, and
their three boys live a great
distance from the nearest
Navy installation, and she
believes the PDFRC model
to be a great solution to the
issue of distance.
"With the conference you
get everything in one day.
You get contacts, phone
numbers, and resources
that can help you through
your deployment, so there's
no need to get into the car
and drive to base for a sin-
gle issue," she said.
Each of the 129 NOSCs
in the U.S. and Puerto Rico
hosts a PDFRC.

T he 2010 Maritime

Symposium took place
April 7-9. For the sec-
ond year in a row, this

This year's event focused
on the future of the MPRF
community and created a
forum for junior officer's to
speak with senior leader-
ship about both career and
community wide issues.
More than 500 active
duty, reserve and retired
VP/VQ officers from around
the world gathered to share
ideas, perspectives and
catch up with shipmates.
Every MPRF squadron
was represented along with
maritime patrol forces from
Canada and the United
Kingdom.
The week kicked off
with a junior officer social,
where shipmates were
reunited in a relaxed atmo-
sphere at Mulligan's. Also
available during the social
and throughout the week,
were the Boeing P-8A
Mobile Demonstration

Extends deadline

for scholarship applications
By Balfour Beatty Communities
Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation has extended
the deadline for its academic scholarship applications to
May 15, 2010.

"With recent spring breaks and income taxes returns
due, we thought we'd give families a break and extend
the deadline for scholarship applications," said a smiling
Diana Heintz Community Manager for Balfour Beatty
Communities.

Family housing residents with high school and
undergraduate students are encouraged to applyforthese
scholarships for the 2010-2011 academic year; valued
up to $2,500. The application, details and requirements
can be found at www.bbcommunitiesfoundation.org.


In 2009, Balfour Beatty


Communities formed Balfour


Beatty Communities Foundation, a non-profit
organization committed to honoring military personnel
- active, disabled and fallen and their families. One
of the primary goals of the Foundation is to promote the
pursuit of education and a commitment to community
leadership through educational scholarships to the
children of active duty military members that reside in
family housing.

"We encourage our high school and undergraduate
residents to apply," said Diana Heintz. "With the cost of
tuition and books, any little bit helps."

Youth Symposium builds strong futures


By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO


Group of young
men and women,
ages 11 to 18, gath-
ered at NAS Jacksonville
Fleet and Family Support
Center (FFSC) April 10 for
the second annual FFSC
Youth Symposium. This
year's theme was "Building
Leaders."
"We're here today to get
the youth involved in a life
skills type of program. We
have a lot of community
partners so we pulled on
those partnerships to get
some extremely knowledge-
able speakers in here today


on a variety of topics we
thought would impact these
kid's lives," said FFSC
Director Carolyn McCorvey.

Some of the topics includ-
ed, financial management,
volunteerism and communi-
ty involvement, self esteem,
resume writing, filling out
job applications, educational
goals, communication skills
and how to make a differ-
ence in the world.
"We kicked off the event
with some inspirational
moments from Chaplain
(Cmdr.) Gerald Felder, who
kind of stunned some of
the kids with his power-


ful, motivational message.
Then Anita McKinney, an
extension educator with the
City of Jacksonville used
a very innovative program
involving several scenarios
based on family incomes to
teach the kids about money
management," continued
McCorvey.
"She set up stations of
what families do every day
such as going to the grocery
store, child care, entertain-
ment, bank and they had
to learn how to take care
of their money. It's a fun
inspiring way to teach kids
the full understanding of
what life is actually about

and do it in a controlled
environment before they
have to do it for real," she
continued.
Other guest speakers
included Andy Andersen,
a retired Navy captain
and motivation speaker
who gave his "Making a
Difference" presentation to
the youths. Andersen cap-
tivated the audience with
such topics as suicide pre-
vention, money manage-
ment, how to respect others,
road rage issues and the
impact you play every day
in society. "People don't care
how much you know, they
know how much you care.
You can be that person who
makes a difference in some-
one's life," said Andersen.

college graduate talked

JAX AIR NEWS, NAS JACKSONVILLE, Thursday, April 22, 2010 13


East Coast welcomes





P-8A Poseidon


From Naval Air
Systems Command
T he first P-8A
Poseidon test air-
craft arrived at NAS
Patuxent River, Md., April
10.
The aircraft, recently
assigned to Air Test and
Evaluation Squadron (VX-
20), arrived after a six-
hour, 55-minute flight from
Boeing's Seattle facilities.
VX-20's Government
Flight Test Director,
Cmdr. Jim Reining, along
with VX-1's Operational
Test Director, Cmdr. John
Verniest, and Boeing's
P-8A chief pilot, Chris
Dobb, delivered the aircraft
referred to as T1.
T1 began formal Navy
flight testing at the Boeing
facility in October 2009.
The Integrated Test Team
(ITT) spent the past six
months executing ground
and flight tests while max-
imizing the expertise of
Boeing P-8A engineers and
technicians.
"It was an exciting
moment to watch the
first P-8A Poseidon touch
down at Pax River today,"
said Capt. Mike Moran,
Maritime Patrol and
Reconnaissance Aircraft
program manager (PMA-
290). "The maritime patrol
and reconnaissance plat-
form is in great demand
throughout the world
and this flight put us
one step closer to deliver-
ing Poseidon to the Fleet.
I cannot be more proud of
our team as they work to
ensure this aircraft will
meet our warfighters'
requirements."

along side a P-3 Orion, prior to landing at NAS Patuxent River, Md., on April 10. The P-8A
began its formal flight test program at the Seattle, Wash. Boeing facilities in October 2009.
The Poseidon integrated test team expects to receive two more test aircraft at NAS Pax River


later this year.

The P-8A Poseidon touches down at NAS Patuxent River,
Md., April 10. The first test aircraft, known as T1, flew from
the Boeing facilities in Seattle to NAS Pax River to continue
flight testing.


Moran said that the pro-
gram continues to meet all
performance criteria and is
on track for initial opera-
tional capability in 2013.
"The ITT, along with all
Boeing's Seattle production
and maintenance team has
worked very hard to get
the aircraft to Pax River to
complete the planned test
program," said Reining.


"The ITT is grateful for the
strong support from PMA-
290 and Boeing manage-
ment and is excited to get to
work testing at Pax River."
The Poseidon ITT, com-
prised of Navy test squad-
rons (VX-20 and VX-1),
and Boeing, will utilize T1
to evaluate the P-8As air-
worthiness and expand its
flight envelope.


The program's other two
flight test aircraft, T2 and
T3, will transfer to Pax
River later this year. These
aircraft will focus on exten-
sive mission systems and
weapons system testing,
ensuring the P-8A's abil-
ity to carry out the anti-
submarine warfare, anti-
surface warfare and intel-
ligence, surveillance and
reconnaissance operations.
The Poseidon will replace
the P-3C Orion as the
Navy's premier maritime
patrol and reconnaissance
aircraft. Its advanced mis-
sion systems, software and
communications technology
will allow the Fleet to carry
out the same missions as
the Orion, but with greater
situational awareness that
will enhance mission suc-
cess.

programs including scholarships, grants and financial aid.
Erica Schneider discussed employment, resume writing
and how to fill out job applications. At the end of the sym-
posium, each participant was asked to write a personal
mission statement.
"This was really a good experience for me. I learned
about how what I do not can affect what happens to me
in the future. The financial part of it and how to manage
money really made an impact," said 16-year-old Daelen
Johnsen, who attends Clay County High School.
"I learned a lot in this class about how my actions affect
my future. I learned that it's important to help others and
how important it is to go to college," added 15-year-old
Jabari Fletcher.

develop appreciation program

event does not happen with-
out the support of the Navy
League. A couple of years
ago, Bill Dudley came to me
and asked what they could
do to help our Sailors and
that's when we decided to
start holding these spe-
cial IA luncheons. Since
the first one in April 2008,
not only has this idea gone
to the tri-base area, but
nationwide," said Scorby.
Scorby then introduced
Commander, Navy Region
Southeast Rear Adm. Tim
Alexander who also paid
tribute to the IAs and
their spouses. "Thank you
for your service and step-
ping up at a time when your
country and your Navy
needs you. You are doing
jobs that another service
might normally do and by
stepping forward and filling
in, we are enabling the suc-
cess of that other service. If
one of our services falters
and fails, we all falter and
fail. So thank-you for your
selfless service and sacri-
fice," said Alexander.
"To all our spouses and
family members, thank you
for taking on the addition-
al role of being the spouse
of an IA Sailor. In our cul-
ture, Sailors normally go to
sea on board ships and our
spouses have the camara-
derie of other spouses in the
command. This is a whole
new ballgame and it is very
important to me personally
that your needs are being
addressed and taken care
of," Alexander stated.
MAC(SCW/SW) Tony
Guyette of the NAS Jax
Security, an IA who recent-
ly returned from a tour
in Iraq, also offered some
remarks.
"Twenty-two years ago, I
began a journey that has
taken me around the world
and has been extremely
rewarding. In 2009, it was
a culmination of all my
leadership skills, training
and patience when I took
a tour as an IA. But it was
very rewarding."
"We worked at Camp
Buca, a prison that held
Iraq's most dangerous
criminals. They targeted
coalition forces and Iraqi
citizens and were consid-
ered the most dangerous of
the most dangerous. Camp
Buca was huge and housed
28,000 extremists," he
explained.
"After the prison was
closed, we transferred them
to Iraqi custody and other
prisons in Iraq. This task
involved more than 100
flights with each flight
transporting about 300
prisoners. Navy Provisional
Detainee Battalion 6 made
up of over 400 Sailors was
the sole remaining unit in
Buca. Every job previous-
ly tasked to the Army was
turned over to the Navy
and we executed our duties
perfectly."
"These Sailors represent-
ed every rate in the Navy,
coming from over 122 com-
mands from around the
globe and each day they
exemplified the Navy's
Core Values. For 279 days,
they had direct face-to-face
contact with the enemy
while others went on patrol

Guyette.
"I could not be proud-

I served with. In the most
arduous of circumstances,
they proved that no matter
what the job, if you want it

for Sailors."
AMl(AW) Douglas

"This is very rewarding to
be recognized today. It's

IAs were not getting the
recognition they deserved
and this is our opportunity
to give them the proper rec-

regional president for the
Florida Navy League.
"These men and women
have placed their lives on
hold, left their units and
ships and have served
unselfishly on an IA tour
placing themselves in
harms way. It's important
to honor them."
During the luncheon, a
special slide show displayed

assignments, stirring many
memories as they remi-

Sexual assault awareness


health fair April 30


By Jeanne Casey
Naval Hospital Jacksonville


Naval Hospital Jax Wellness
Center is observing Sexual
Assault Awareness Month
with a health fair April 30 in the NEX
Courtyard. The goal is to raise aware-
ness about sexual violence and to help
break the silence that surrounds it.
"As we continue to confront this crime,
let us reaffirm our dedication to take
action in our communities and stop
abuse before it starts. Together, we can
increase awareness about sexual vio-
lence, decrease its frequency, punish
offenders, help victims and heal lives,"
said President Obama in his proclama-
tion marking April as National Sexual
Assault Awareness Month.
While sexual violence disproportion-
ately targets women, sexual violence
affects Americans-military and civil-
ian alike-of all backgrounds and ages.

Training up with

first 'Romeo'


simulator on


east coast

By Brian Chwalisz
Jax Air News Intern
The first MH-60R Seahawk
simulator on the east coast
was recently installed at
NAS Jacksonville and approved
to support Helicopter Sea
Combat Wing U.S. Atlantic Fleet
(HELSEACOMBATWINGLANT) in
training pilots, aircrew and main-
tainers on the new "Romeo" platform.
NAS Jacksonville is just the sec-
ond Navy installation to establish an
operational MH-60R squadron the
HSM-70 "Spartans." The Navy's first
operational MH-60R squadron was
HSM-71 at NAS North Island in 2007.
"We do fleet training to build com-
bat readiness for pilots, aviation
warfare systems operators (AWs)
and a variety of maintainers," said
HELSEACOMBATWINGLANT
Simulator Technical Director Mike
Muehlbauer. "The wing provides us
with training schedules and we work
with them to guarantee that all their
training requirements are met."
The new HSM simulator, unlike
some older platforms, has the ability
to create situations that mimic combat
scenarios anywhere in the world.
"We can emulate any piece of mili-
tary equipment that has ever been
built," said Muehlbauer.
"This includes U.S. and foreign
military platforms like ships, subma-
rines, airplanes and weaponry."
He continued, "We also can place a
pilot anywhere in the world and pro-
vide them with every possible situ-
ation he might face be that enemy
attacks, challenging weather or in-
flight emergencies."
Pilots from HSM-70 use the new
simulator before deployments to prac-
tice landing on ships, as well as to
familiarize themselves with the loca-
tions of hospitals in major cities near
where they will be operating.
"The HSM simulator presents real-

their skills.


istic scenarios for every environment,"
said Muehlbauer. "There is so much
detail in this program that a pilot
could even land at their house if they
so desired."
The new simulator is part of the
Navy helicopter Concept of Operations
(CONOPS) approved by the CNO in
2002. Under CONOPS, the SH-60B
and SH-60F Seahawk variants are
being replaced by the more-robust
MH-60R. When the HSM transition
is complete around 2015, there will be
Romeo squadrons homeported at both
NAS Jacksonville and NS Mayport.
"With all the new squadrons arriv-
ing at NAS Jax, the helicopter simu-
lator crews have become very busy,"
said Muehlbauer. "We have had to
turn into Gumby in a way by being
extremely flexible in order to meet to
the continuously changing needs of
the wing."
Just a few weeks ago, HSM-70 pilots
and aircrew joined the instructors in
an international war scenario utiliz-
ing the new MH-60R simulator.
"We fought a worldwide battle on
an Internet-based war game. We had
German, French and British militar-
ies, the U.S. Air Force and two U.S.
Navy ships taking part in a giant sim-
ulation," said Muehlbauer.
Calling the simulation "synthetic
training," Muehlbauer believes it
will be a safer and inexpensive way
of replacing operational events like
composite training unit exercises
(COMPTUEX).
The next MH-60R simulator is
scheduled to arrive at NS Mayport, as
well as a second at NAS Jacksonville

DLA Jacksonville recognized

for improved customer support
By Debra Bingham
DSCR Public Affairs
E nhancing customer support is more than a goal
for Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) it's a daily
commitment and reality exemplified by the
DLA Jacksonville team that was recognized April 1 for
improving the availability of consumable hardware for
Fleet Readiness Center Southeast (FRCSE).
The DLA Jacksonville team identified national stock
S numbers (NSNs) for 93 percent of 3,000 part-numbered
alisz
0R line items, and established high and low limits for iden-
ent tified inventory, during a continuous process improve-
)ne ment event. They also improved the parts forecasting
and ordering process for the FRCSE Industrial Plant
Services Department supported by DLA Jacksonville.
Navy Rear Adm. Vincent Griffith, commander of Defense
Supply Center Richmond (DSCR), presented a Team of the
Month award to the nine-person team during a town hall
meeting in the FRCSE cafeteria. He congratulated them
for helping to decrease equipment downtime and minimize
work stoppages on aircraft production lines through their
efforts to increase material availability.
"I love highlighting outstanding perform-
ers," Griffith said. "Our work is extremely impor-
tant. It contributes to warfighter safety and success."
DSCR manages DLA aviation supply operations at
Navy and Air Force industrial sites across the coun-
try. Cmdr. Bernie Knox commands DLA Jacksonville
and serves as the agency's single face to FRCSE cus-
tomers. More than 100 DLA employees work here.
Richard Moore, a supervisory warehouse support special-
ist, was a team lead for the project. He said identifying
NSNs for part-numbered items not only improved mate-
rial availability, but also saved taxpayer dollars because it
reduced the need for redundant local purchasing.
"Part numbers didn't cross to stock numbers and we
had to use a drill-down, parametric search capability on
some software. There was quite a bit of technical ana-
lytical research and comparison involved," Moore said.
Moore said team was cohesive, hard-working and com-
prised of goal and mission-driven professionals who
M- approached all challenges with a positive attitude.
3pi- "The team made this successful also, encouragement
ew and support from my supervisor and directorate Lean
ile Champion, Dora Ramon, and from Black Belt William
ely
ills Murray, who was a terrific mentor," Moore said.
ad- Lean is a component of continuous process improvement
the designed to identify and eliminate waste in business pro-
cesses. A black belt is an expert in the use of quality man-
agement methods and statistical methods, such as reduc-
lid ing cycle time and delivery lateness.
The DLA team included equipment specialists, supply
ery technicians and production support specialists. Members
)rk of the DLA team were Julie Brewer, Maureen Jerome,
to Dale Dempsey, Brian Law, Kenneth Tureski, Jerry Lewis,
Thomas Shaffer and Donna Anderson.

Southern Seas '10

By Lt. j.g. Joseph Collins

HSL-42 Detachment 10 "Phist Pumpers" home-
ported at NAS Jacksonville recently deployed
with the guided-missile frigate USS Klakring
(FFG 42) for Southern Seas 2010 a U.S. Southern
Command-directed operation that provides U.S. and
international forces the opportunity to operate in a
multi-national environment.
These two units will work together in upcoming exercis-
es to include UNITAS Atlantic, UNITAS Pacific, and CIT
operations, as well as numerous port calls with planned
community relations events.
Southern Seas 2010 will not only highlight the naval
experience and operating knowledge of HSL-42 Det 10 and
Klakring Sailors, but also that of several allied nations,
including Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Mexico and oth-
ers.
"This is an opportunity for a multinational exchange of
ideas, knowledge and experience," said Lt. Cmdr. Brian
Binder, HSL-42 Det 10 officer in charge. "This not only
allows our naval forces to train together, but also provides
a fantastic opportunity to improve upon and solidify part-
nerships with our southern allies."
Both Binder and the commanding officer of the
Klakring, Cmdr. Scott Smith, are looking forward to
community relations projects. They said that one of the
deployment's key goals will be to spend time in various
ports to experience the culture of each nation and most
importantly participate in local activities that help build
a better community.
"I am excited for our guys to see some parts of the world
they may not have otherwise visited, but also to experience
the rewards of supporting other people," said Binder. "The
crew of the Klakring and Det. 10 have trained together
throughout multiple underway periods and are eager to
participate in this once-in-a-lifetime deployment."
"Klakring and HSL-42 Det. 10 Sailors -'Team 42' as we
describe ourselves look forward to the opportunities both
at sea and ashore to learn from our regional partners,"
said Smith. "This deployment is a first for most of us and
will enhance the sense of adventure we all feel when we go
to sea."
Southern Seas 2010 allows U.S. and other forces to oper-
ate in the multinational environment, refine coordination,
improve interoperability and demonstrate flexibility.
"Klakring will serve as a visible reminder of the United
States' commitment to the Caribbean and South American
countries," said Smith.
Formally known as the Partnership of the Americas
deployment, Southern Seas gives a distinct name to one
of Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command's
(COMUSNAVSO) deployments. It is the naval component
command for U.S. Southern Command and is responsible
for all naval personnel and assets in the area of respon-
sibility. COMUSNAVSO conducts a variety of missions
in support of the Maritime Strategy, including theater
security cooperation, relationship building, humanitarian
assistance and disaster response, community relations and
counter-illicit trafficking operations.

42 Detachment (Det.) 10 Sailors on
behalf of Project Handclasp.
During a special pier-side presen-
tation at Port Castries, Cmdr. Scott
Smith, Klakring commanding offi-
cer, stood by pallets of materials and
detailed the value of interagency and
joint ventures with civilian organiza-
tions.
"This donation continues the great
work from last year's visit by USS
Oak Hill (LSD 51) and allows us to
interact with other U.S. government
agencies like USAID and local organi-
zations like Sandals," said Smith.

embarked aboard U.S. Navy ships.
Klakring was in St. Lucia as part
of the six-month Southern Seas
2010 deployment to Latin America
and the Caribbean in support of U.S.
Southern Command's Partnership of
the America's Maritime Strategy.
Hygiene items, textbooks and
stuffed animals were a few of the
materials donated to the hospital and
school. Through the cooperation of
numerous donors, Project Handclasp
has shipped approximately 1.5 million
pounds of charitable materials annu-
ally for the past several years.
In addition to the Project Handclasp
pallets, 150 school textbooks were pre-
sented to the St. Lucian Royal Police
on behalf of the state of California.
The books are to be given to the St.
Lucian Learning Resource Center.
Approximately 120 stuffed ani-
mals were presented to the Micoud
Preschool on behalf of Loving Hugs
Inc.
Clotilda Jenny Fevrier, executive
director of Victoria General Hospital,
said she was very pleased with the
support given by the U.S. Navy,
Sandals and Project Handclasp.
"This is very good," said Fevrier.
"The hospital is always in need, and I
believe what has been given to us will
be put to very good use. We welcome
continuous support of this nature."
Mary Clercent, assistant teacher
at the Micoud Community School,
echoed Fevrier sentiments.
"We at the Micoud School are very
appreciative of this kind gesture from
the Sandals Organization and USS
Klakring," said Clercent.
Southern Seas is a U.S. Southern
Command-directed operation and car-
ried out by Commander, Destroyer
Squadron (CDS) 40.
This year's deployment includes
CDS 40, Klakring and HSL-42 Det.
10 based at NAS Jacksonville.

CNATTU Jacksonville

student becomes

naturalized citizen

By AME2(AW) Eduardo Acosts
CNATTU Jax Public Affairs

A MAN Kanghua Liao moved to

Las Vegas from Guangzhou,
Guangdong, China in 2006. She
joined the Navy in March 2009 to get col-
lege assistance from the Navy.
Liao soon discovered that becoming a
service member simplified her citizenship
process.
Immigrants seeking U.S. citizenship
have to wait five years to go through the
naturalization process, but service mem-
bers, such as Liao, currently attached
to Center for Naval Aviation Technical
Training Unit Jacksonville, only had to
wait one year.
With today's technology, natural-
ization isn't difficult; most of the neces-
sary forms are now available online, and
Sailors don't have to incur the costs of a
lawyer. "As far as the immigration pro-
cess," Liao said. "Luckily I joined the Navy
and the process is much faster and easier."
"The first thing I'm going to do is register
to vote," she continued.
She also added that the Navy will help

"The Navy will help me through my
first home purchase which is one of my
many dreams and goals. I have great
faith that soon I will be able to accom-
plish this goal. I also count on the
upcoming great experiences of traveling
around the world. What better way to
experience something like this," she said.
Liao will continue her Navy career
in Hawaii with VP-9. She will leave
