Earth Day with shoreline cleanup


By Clark Pierce
Editor


Nearly 190 volunteers observed
Earth Day by taking part in
the annual NAS Jacksonville
Shoreline Clean-up April 22 at
Mulberry Cove Marina.
This year, the Navy's theme was
"Partnering for a Greener Future."
Volunteers from the various NAS


Jacksonville and tenant commands
spent their morning scouring the
shoreline on foot and in boats to pick
up more than 5,000 pounds of trash
and debris.
The event began with a safety
brief by NAS Jax Safety Officer Ron
Williamson. "Be careful to avoid
twisting an ankle when traversing
rocks, driftwood and weeds at the
water's edge. As always, be on the


lookout for snakes, which are more
active in spring because it's their mat-
ing season."
NAS Jacksonville Commanding
Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. told the
volunteers that keeping the installa-
tion clean and presentable takes more
than a one-day event.

Looking back to 1967...

Zucchini horror


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


Last week, my son, Lindell, and
I went to a nursery on Union
Street to pick out seeds for our
second annual Smiley garden. As I
spun the carousel of seed options,
Lindell plucked packets from a dif-
ferent display across the room.
"How about these," he said running
toward me.
When I flipped the packet over and
saw the picture on the front, my heart
began to race. Zucchini! (Cue horrify-
ing screeching sound.) "Not, not those,
Lindell," I said. "Hurry, put them
back where you found them."
Zucchini and I go back to last year,
when I first learned to garden. They
are such innocent looking seeds -flat
and oval like the pumpkin seed. But
out of this deceptive, smooth exterior
springs one of nature's most angry
and aggressive plants.
To be fair, all plants have their own
personality. Lettuce is the hard work-
er, consistently and inconspicuous-
ly creating layer upon layer of tasty
leaves. Although prolific, lettuce has
the good manners to keep to itself,
and in some varieties, to even grow
into a discreet, compact ball.
Sugar snap peas are the fragile,
pretty ones who need constant atten-
tion. They delicately wrap them-
selves around a climbing pole and
then sprout the most beautiful dainty


Hey MoneyChic:
Is it really that much cheaper to buy
groceries at the commissary? If I'm
only going to save a couple of bucks,
I might just shop at the local grocery
store near my house, it's more conve-
nient.
MoneyChic says: You might be
surprised at just how much of a sav-
ings commissary shopping may be to
you. In fact, I'd consider it one of your
benefits of serving in the military.
Did you know the U.S. Department
of Agriculture did a study and found

white flowers. But just as soon as the
flower bursts forth, it shrivels up like
a scrap piece of tissue paper still
delicate and beautiful in its own way,
but clearly pouting.
Corn is the show off, like people who
claim to eat candy bars and not gain
weight. Tall and skinny, corn still
somehow manages to cast a shadow
on the rest of the garden. Just when
you think the corn stalks can't get any
taller, you lose a child in it.
Green onions, which smell even as
they grow, are the loners of the group
that you suspect the other vegetables
are making fun of.
But zucchini is the angry, volatile
vegetable that plans to take over the
entire garden. Nothing not me, nor
my shovel could stop it from growing
over, around and under every neigh-
boring plant.
I came to fear the zucchini. When
I went to bed, the plant would have
but one or two small green vegetables
hanging from its vine. By morning,
they tripled in size and become so
deformed, they looked like misshap-
en baseball bats. This zucchini plant
can't possibly be normal. Or safe.
I started receiving phone calls with
no caller on the other end. If I listened
closely, I could almost hear the zuc-

that the average commissary shopper
saves 30 percent off their grocery bill?
A family of four saves $3,283 annu-
ally based on spending an average of
about $600 per month for their gro-
ceries. The same items bought out
in town at the local grocery would
cost $881 per month. A single service
member would spend $305 per month
on groceries on the economy, but if he/
she shopped at the commissary these
same products would only total $210.
So, as you can see, it's more than
just a couple of dollars that are

chini breathing through the receiver.
("Mrs. Smiley, we have traced the call
and it is coming from . your gar-
den.")
When I harvested the plant, I
found myself aggressively chopping
it as sweat poured from my temples.
I cleaned up all the juice and the
evidence just in case the zucchini's
friends wanted revenge.
Eventually I dug up the plant to
protect my family. The vines clawed
at my skin and their fat tentacles
wrapped around the sugar snap
peas and the fence posts like a boa
constrictor. The roots seemed to be
anchored to the very center of the
earth.
When I was finished, I had dirt all
over me; and my husband, Dustin,
thought I had been in a fight. I had.
Back at the nursery, Lindell wanted
to know why we couldn't buy zucchini
seeds. This is like a child asking why
they can't play with a loaded gun. I
told him we could get pumpkin seeds
instead.
As I said earlier, however, pumpkin
and zucchini seeds have unsettling
similarities.
So I'm keeping my eye on those
guys, and I've left my shovel nearby
just as a warning.


saved by shopping on base. These
figures also include the commis-
sary five percent surcharge as
well as a bagger tip. (Remember
baggers only work for tips!)
You are already on base going to
work; it's not much out of your way to
pop into the commissary before you
head home.
In fact, I stock up on my grocer-
ies there, two weeks worth at a time.
(The lady with the heaping cart of
groceries you see just might be me!)
Don't forget the coupons.

ated from the University of Utah in 1992
and was designated a naval flight officer
in November 1994. His operational tours
include VP-26, USS John F. Kennedy (CV-

He claimed his speech
would be like a woman's

He also thanked his fam-
ily and those who support-
ed his career along the way.
"There are two themes -
confused denial and sage
counsel that echo in my
speech today," said Novak
before talking about career
moves, his naval experience
and key personnel.
Citing former Com-
manding Officer Capt. Bob
LaBelle as one person who
had a huge impact on him
in a short amount of time,
Novak recalled, "Capt.
LaBelle told me, 'Take
the challenging job you
always need to stay com-
petitive.' I've tried to live by
that ever since."

program manager of the
Commercial Derivative and

Office, was the guest
speaker. Wallace referred
to Novak by his nickname,
"Hedgie," throughout his
speech.
"I wish I could stand here
and share all of the mem-
ories and special stories I
have of him," said Wallace
in his closing remarks.
"Since I met him, it's
been my experience that
if it's important, I want
Hedgie. If you want to
enhance morale and spice
up the ready room, bring
Hedgie in. If you want the
finest organization in the
Navy, you have got to have
Hedgie. There is no other
person I'd rather go on lib-
erty with, and no other per-
son I'd want to go to war
with, other than Hedgie."
Retiring as the executive
assistant to Commander,
Navy Region Southeast,
Novak began his career at
the Naval Academy with an
undergraduate degree in


oceanography.
After flight training
in Pensacola, Novak was
designated a naval flight
officer and began his work
with the S-3B Viking.
He deployed on board
USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63),
USS America (CV-66),
USS Harry S. Truman
(CVN-75) and USS John F.
Kennedy (CV-67). Novak
graduated from the College
of Command and Staff
in 2003 with a Master of
Arts Degree in National
Security and Strategic
Studies.
He has also worked at the
Pentagon in the Operations
Directorate of the Joint
Staff within the National
Military Command Center.
He has accumulated
over 2,200 flight hours
and more than 660 carrier
arrested landings.
He and his wife,

Capt. Perry Yaw, VP-30 com-
manding officer advanced Lt.
Gabriel D'Alessandro, Navy of the
Argentine Republic, to the rank of lieuten-
ant commander. D'Alessandro is training
at VP-30 as part of the Navy's Personnel
Exchange Program (PEP) April 1.
The PEP allows qualified officers the
opportunity to integrate with foreign
military services in order to sustain and
enhance cooperative maritime relations


and interoperability with U.S. allies and
partners.
While the United States Navy has been
conducting informal exchanges with allies
since World War II, the PEP program was
first formalized in the 1970s as a way to
develop closer ties between the U.S. Navy
and foreign services. PEP enhances inter-
service relationships, encouraging mutual
confidence and understanding, and pre-
pares officer and enlisted personnel for
future assignments involving multinational
operations.

command master chief retires after


VP-45 bid farewell to CMDCM(AW/
SW) Howard Simpkins April 1
after a career that spanned over
three decades of honorable and dedicated
service.
Coinciding with the 117th anniversary of
the establishment of the chief petty officer
rank, the mid-morning ceremony was held
outdoors at the Bachelor Officers' Quarters
Pavilion at NAS Jacksonville.
Simpkins joined the Navy in August
1979 from his hometown of West Palm
Beach, Fla. After attending Recruit
Training Center, Orlando, he entered
aviation electricians (AE) training in
Millington, Tenn. "I chose to be an avia-
tion electricians mate because it had more
mechanical things you could do with it
than some other rates," said Simpkins.
Following AE training, he checked into
VS-31. He would go on to complete four
tours in the S-3 Viking with VS-24, VS-31
and VS-32.
The time Simpkins spent at VS-32
stands out for him. "As a maintenance chief
coming up through the ranks, being the
maintenance master chief is the job all


maintenance guys want," he explained.
"When I got the job and it was in one of my
previous squadrons, that was the highlight
of my career at that point."
Following his time with S-3's, Simpkins
went on to be maintenance master chief for
HSL-44, command master chief on board
USS Simpson (FFG 56) and finally com-
mand master chief at VP-45.
Simpkins shore assignments included
recruiting duty in Daytona Beach, Fla.,
instructor duty in Millington, Tenn. and
leading chief petty officer at the Aircraft
Intermediate Maintenance Department at
NAS Key West.
During his 31 years of service his wife,
Lois, has been the one steady component
of an otherwise ever-changing life. "Her
support has been what's helped me to suc-
ceed," said Simpkins. "She's always been
the backbone of the family for us, now it's
time for me to back up and support my wife
in whatever she would like to do."
The retirement ceremony includ-
ed comments from VP-45 Commanding
Officer Cmdr. Andrew Smith and guest
of honor Rear Adm. Michael Miller, chief
of Legislative Affairs. Smith stated, "His

Your efforts ensured the availabil-

teers from NAS Jacksonville and
the University of North Florida.
As a strong member of the team
at the core facility and Branch
Health Clinic Jacksonville you
are admired by patients and staff
members alike."
Hejmanowski said, "It's an honor
for me to be able to serve those
who deploy. I truly love what I
do, so my job is itself the reward.
The best part of this award is
greater recognition of the phe-
nomenal team at Branch Clinic
Jacksonville's Deployment Health
Center. Our geographic area of
responsibility is ever-expanding,
to include all military active duty
and reserve branches. We are
dedicated to ensuring deploying
personnel's medical preparedness,
to supporting their families dur-

- to taking care of their medical/

return. Our team is proud to
serve our deploying service mem-
bers."


0 years service

With three decades of naval ser-
vice behind him, Simpkins looks toward
a future of spending time with his fam-
ily and friends. "It's good timing for me to
retire, there are not many careers in the
civilian world that you can stay in for 30
years now-a-days."

Little-used fitness


waiver eliminated

From Navy Personnel Command
The Navy announced plans April 12, to discon-
tinue waivers that allow Sailors who exceed
Navy body-fat standards to receive a passing
score for the semi-annual physical fitness assess-
ment (PFA).
The Department of Defense Body Composition
Assessment (BCA) Exception Waiver allows com-
manding officers to waive BCA criteria up to the
Department of Defense (DoD) maximum standard
if the Sailor can achieve an overall score of excellent
or better, with no single event scored below a good.
Approximately 1,595 BCA waivers were granted for
active-duty Sailors in 2009.
According to NAVADMIN 131/10 the waiver will
be discontinued beginning
with the Fall 2010 PFA
cycle which starts July 1.
Sailors who exceed Navy
BCA standards will be
S scored as a PFA failure
in the Physical Readiness
Information Management
System (PRIMS). The
change will also be incor-
porated in the next Physical Readiness Program
instruction update.
"Obesity is linked to serious medical conditions
including high blood pressure, heart disease and
stroke, gallbladder disease and cancer," said Bill
Moore, director of the Navy's Physical Readiness
Program. "Doctors generally agree that the more
obese a person is, the more likely he or she is to have
health problems."
According to OPNAVINST 6110.1H, the Navy's
Physical Readiness Program instruction, the upper
limits for the BCA are 22 percent body fat for males
age 17-39, and 33 percent body fat for females age
17-39. Sailors age 40 and older are allotted one addi-
tional percentage point.
"Most Sailors have a significantly lower level of body
fat than the upper allowable Navy limits," said Moore.
For more information read NAVADMIN 131/10 and
visit the physical readiness program section avail-
able at http://www.npc.navy.mil/CommandSupport/

Navy implements changes to



DoD 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'


By Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs


Navy officials announced adherence to Department
of Defense (DoD) "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law
April 20. The Secretary of Defense revised the
rules regarding separations under the law March 25.
NAVADMIN 137/10 summarizes the changes and pro-
vides guidance for processing open and future cases under
the new regulations.
The DoD implements the law in two instructions DoD
Instruction (DODI) 1332.14 for enlisted separations and
DODI 1332.30 for officer separations.
Changes to both instructions raise the level of the com-
mander authorized to initiate inquiries and separation
proceedings regarding homosexual conduct, revise what
constitutes "credible information," and specify certain cat-
egories of information that cannot be used for purposes of
homosexual conduct.
"An 0-7 must now make the determination to initiate an
inquiry or separation proceedings regarding homosexual


conduct," said Cmdr. Mark Holley, legal counsel for Navy
Personnel Command.
"Before the regulations changed, any commanding offi-
cer could initiate separation processing, but now the com-
mander must be an admiral or above in the Sailor's chain
of command."
According to Holley, the majority of homosexual conduct
cases involve Sailors coming forward and requesting sepa-
ration.
However, in some cases, credible information is provided
by a third party. In such cases an inquiry may be neces-
sary. If the determination to conduct an inquiry is made,
the officer appointed to conduct the inquiry must be at
least an 0-5.
A member may be separated if:
He or she engages in, attempts to engage in, or solicits
another to engage in a homosexual act;
Makes a statement that he or she is homosexual;
He or she marries or attempts to marry a person
known to be of the same biological sex.


ricane evacuation. To pre-
pare for such an emergen-
cy, CNATTU Jax has plans
in place to evacuate those
students to MCLB Albany.
Once a year, before
the hurricane season,
CNATTU Jacksonville's
destructive weather coor-
dinators, AS1(AW/
SW) Josue Osorio and
AS1(NAC/SW) James
Forbes, take a trip to
MCLB Albany for a site
visit/survey.
This year, the CNATTU
Jax Executive Officer
Cmdr. Michael Gramolini,
accompanied the destruc-


tive weather coordinators for the site visit/survey to MCLB.
Gramolini had a chance to personally examine the safe
haven that was chosen for his students.
Gramolini accessed the base's designated spaces (ware-
houses) that will be used for housing the students. He
visited the various facilities that the base offered including
the commissary and the Marine Corps Exchange.
He also met with the MCLB Commanding Officer Col.
Terry Williams, to discuss the memorandum of agreement
(MOA) between CNATTU Jax and MCLB Albany. The
MOA designates MCLB Albany as CNATTU Jacksonville's
Safe Place for students.

daughter and excitement filled the air
as more than 1,000 kids and their
parents celebrated the annual Month
of the Military Child Carnival April 17 at
the Allegheny Softball Field.
The free event is put on each year by the
NAS Jax Morale, Welfare and Recreation
(MWR) Department's Youth Activities
Center (YAC) to show military children
how much they are appreciated.
"Sometimes overlooked in the big pic-


ture, are the sacrifices military children
make every day. By hosting this event
with games, prizes, food and fun, we want
our military children to know their sacri-
fices are deeply appreciated by people at
NAS Jax and all over the world," said YAC
Director Aaron Long.
"We work closely with these children at
the YAC every day, and want them to know
they mean a great deal to each of us."
The event featured numerous inflatables
for jumping, sliding and bouncing, a bun-
gee run, a challenging rock climbing wall,
face painting by the staff of the Fleet and


Family Support Center, games, free sno-
cones, cotton candy, popcorn, plus, a special
guest appearance by "Southpaw," mascot
for the Jacksonville Suns.
The weather provided a hefty amount of
sunshine for the event. "I really love what
MWR is doing. Everything they put on
is terrific! Gracie and my girls are really
enjoying the event," said Janice Rogers.
"I think MWR is doing a great job sup-
porting military families especially when
spouses are deployed. This event is an
example of what makes military fami-
lies feel supported by the community,"


added Gi Teevan, the VP-30 ombudsman.
The kids had a great time running around
checking out all the activities.
"It's a pretty cool carnival and my
favorite activity was the rock climb-
ing wall," said Amy Gottshall.
Event sponsors were VyStar Credit Union,
USAA, Metro PCS and the Jacksonville
Suns.
Neither MWR, nor the U.S. Navy or any
other part of the federal government offi-
cially endorses any company, sponsor or its
products or services.

home to their families and
friends April 12 after a unique,
six-month deployment aboard
the guided missile frigate USS
McInerney (FFG 8) in support of
counter-illicit trafficking (CIT)
operations in the U.S. Southern
Command area of responsibility.
Unlike typical CIT deploy-
ments, Det. 7 was selected as the
first combined SH-60B/VTUAV
"Fire Scout" detachment. Fire
Scout, the Navy's new Vertical
Takeoff and Landing Unmanned
Aerial Vehicle (VTUAV), comple-
mented the SH-60B's mission
of over-the-horizon identifica-
tion and interdiction of suspi-


cious surface contacts. While the
SH-60B remained the primary air
asset, the Fire Scout was able to
enhance and increase the versa-
tility of the air-surface team.
HSL-42 aircrew, backed by the
detachment's 19 maintenance pro-
fessionals, provided operational
testing, NATOPS formulation,
and construction of the Standard
Operating Procedures paving
the way for "Fire Scout" to make
future operational deployments.
In their time at sea, Det. 7
amassed over 610 combined
SH-60B/Fire Scout operational
flight hours. The McInerney/Det.
7 team participated in 12 vessel
boardings, resulting in the dis-
ruption and seizure of 10 metric
tons of contraband.
One seizure was the direct


result of Fire Scout. Its sophis-
ticated optics and small profile
allow it to maintain an unprec-
edented covert posture while feed-
ing real-time video back to the
frigtate. Det. 7 also participated
in three search and rescue opera-
tions and two helicopter medical
evacuations
Sea Dawgs maintainers worked
tirelessly to maintain the SH-60B
and both MQ-8B "Firescouts."
The 19 Sea Dawgs maintainers,
led by ADC Gerald Gamm and
Leading Petty Officer AE1 Lacey
Clark, successfully completed
four SH-60B maintenance phases
at sea and accrued over 10,900
maintenance man-hours. In their
"down time," they also managed
to qualify 95 percent of EAWS-
eligible personnel.

a bittersweet address by shared experiences about
Shear, as it was the last working on common goals
ball he would be attending and projects, realizing how
before his retirement this the contributions of one
summer, affect the others.
Those in attendance "We are family," said
learned of the history of Shear. "I sense that all of


you feel that way, too."
The proud heritage that
members of these organiza-
tions hold was apparent in
the retired guests in atten-
dance at the ball. NAVFAC's
former commanding offi-
cer and executive officer
along with three NMCB 14
alumnus including World
War II veteran and NMCB
14 original member Jim
Rothermel were among
the guests who still honor
the great traditions of which
they will always be part.
Rothermel, who was a
painter during his active
duty service, was present-
ed with a belated Combat
Action Ribbon and a shadow
box with memorabilia from
his time with NMCB 14. He
expressed his gratitude for
being honored for his ser-
vice and said that being a
Seabee has been one of the
proudest accomplishments
of his life.

NSC insight on firearm safety


By April Phillips
Naval Safety Center Public Affairs
T he basic safety
rules for deal-
ing with firearms
haven't changed, but mis-
hap reports received by the
Naval Safety Center (NSC)
show that they need to be
reinforced. Too many pre-
ventable mishaps occur
when Sailors and Marines
become complacent about
their weapons.
"The first rule is to treat
every weapon as if it's load-
ed," said AOCM(AW/SW)
Craig Trute, an explosives
safety expert at NSC.


A scan of mishap reports
received in recent years
shows that not everyone is
following this cardinal rule.
Sailors and Marines sus-
tained both minor and major
injuries because they did not
take the time to ensure their
weapons were unloaded.
"Did not follow SOP (stan-
dard operation procedures)
for weapons handling" is a
common finding in fire-
arms mishap reports. Trute
believes most gun own-
ers are aware of the safety
rules, but they become too
relaxed with their weap-
ons after a while, and this


leads to negligent discharg-
es. Trute suggested periodic
training to remind gun own-
ers about their responsibili-
ties. Classes are conducted
by local gun shops, through
local Morale, Welfare and
Recreation offices and other
small arms instructors.
"If you can't find the
information you need, ask
your chief," Trute said.
"Information is available."
Besides treating all weap-
ons as if they are loaded,
other gun safety rules
include: keeping your finger
off the trigger until you're
ready to fire; never pointing


at anything you don't intend
to shoot; and always keep
the weapon unloaded until
you're ready to fire.
Trute said this last rule
is important for everyone,
but especially for gun own-
ers who have children in
the house. "You can't hide
things from kids," said
Trute. "They'll go searching
for everything, and they'll
probably find it. You've got
to keep the weapons stored
separate from the ammo and
keep them locked up."
He said there's one other
thing that gets Sailors and
Marines in trouble with

their weapons -- alcohol.
"It impairs your judgment
and makes you think you're
bullet proof," said Trute.


"You're not. Alcohol and
weapons are the same deadly
combination as alcohol and
driving. They don't mix."


Enterprise completes sea

trials, prepares for air wing

By Ensign Michael Hatfield
USS Enterprise Public Affairs
The aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) com-
pleted sea trials April 19 after conducting intense
testing of all major ship systems at sea.
The crew made certain that the nation's first nuclear-
powered aircraft carrier and oldest active warship was
ready to be redelivered to the fleet.
"The ship performed amazingly," said Capt. Ron Horton,
Enterprise's current and longest-serving commanding
officer. "She and the crew performed exceptionally well
under rigorous testing, including high speed turns and
many drills. She's as capable as ever and only just begun
to stretch her sea legs."
Although many of the younger crew members had never
been underway before, the intense training completed
during the Extended Drydocking Selected Restricted
Availability ensured they knew exactly what to do.
"This ship has an incredible track record of excellence,"
said Command Master Chief (SW/AW) Dominic Musso.
"The Enterprise is legendary, and the way the crew and
the ship performed during sea trials demonstrates decid-
edly that the legend continues."
The crew hoisted a broom on the starboard halyard of
the ship's mast to signify a "clean sweep," a longstanding
tradition for ships which complete evaluations with excel-
lence. Enterprise is scheduled to begin its training cycle,
which will culminate with the ship executing its 21st
deployment.
The ship's next step is to pass flight deck certification so
that its air wing can embark the ship. Now the Enterprise


Sailors man the rails of the aircraft carrier

way back to homeport following sea trials
and redeli\er\ to the fleet.

crew is shifting focus to an operational mindset and the
mission ahead preparing for the arrival of Carrier Air
Wing (CVW) One.
An important focus for Enterprise Sailors is foreign
object debris (FOD) which is any loose object which can
be moved through the air during flight operations.
"FOD is the responsibility of all hands," said Cmdr.
Mark Nieto, Enterprise's Aviation Intermediate
Maintenance Department officer. "FOD can be one of the
most dangerous things on the flight deck or in the hangar
bay."
A piece of FOD ingested into an engine can cause engine
failure and possibly the loss of the aircraft or the aircrew.
Additionally, propellers, rotors and engines can blow the
FOD through the air and injure Sailors.
The engine of an F/A-18F Super Hornet engine costs
$3.5 million to replace. "It could take a week or more to
get a new engine aboard," said Nieto.
To preserve the safety of crew and aircraft, FOD walk-
downs are conducted every day in the hangar bay and on
the flight deck prior to starting any aircraft engine.
"We don't ever want to lose an aircraft due to FOD,"
said Nieto. "More importantly, we don't ever want to lose a
Sailor."

NMCRS



Jacksonville



honors volunteers


By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO


wenty-five volunteers
were honored at the Navy
and Marine Corps Relief
Society (NMCRS) Jacksonville
Spring Luncheon and Awards
Ceremony April 22 for their con-
tributions to the organization.
"I want to welcome everyone
and thank you for being here. In
particular, thank you Kathleen
Alexander for hosting this event.
The real work of the NMCRS is
done by our volunteers and we are
here today to honor them," said
NMCRS Jacksonville Director
Dave Faraldo.
He read a letter from
NMCRS President and CEO
Steve Abbott which said:
"There are no better shipbuild-
ers than the 3,600 volunteers
that comprise the life blood of
the Navy Marine Corps Relief
Society. Your friendship building/
partnership building/leadership
building are legend. You build a
better world by lifting the spir-
its, sharing smiles, touching lives
and offering a helping hand there-
by improving the quality of life
of everyone fortunate enough to
cross your path. Your energy and
enthusiasm make an important
difference in what you share so
unselfishly and it's contagious.
As you know, 2009 set records
that go back to 1993 when the
size of Navy/Marine Corps team
was significantly larger. With
your compassion, efficiency and
timely assistance, we responded
to 91,418 cries for help and dis-
tributed $47.4 million in inter-
est-free loans and grants to cli-
ents who defend our freedom and
serve our nation. Collectively, you
touched the lives of one in every


six Sailors and Marines in uni-
form during the past 12 months.
Think about those numbers. They
reflect shipbuilding at its very
best.
Every April, across the society,
we pause to celebrate National
Volunteer Appreciation Week and
recognize your unique skills, tire-
less energy and selfless commit-
ment to America's military heroes
and their families. Please know
that I salute you and appreciate
you and count my lucky stars that
you are members of my shipbuild-
ing team. Every day you make it
possible for us to accomplish our
mission."
Chris Scorby was the special
guest who was recognized for
donating more than 1,000 hours
of her time at the society help-
ing Sailors and their families in
need. Scorby is leaving the area
next month when her husband,
Capt. Jack Scorby Jr., NAS Jax
commanding officer, transfers to
Washington, DC.
Kathleen Alexander and
Melissa Schade were also honored
for volunteering 600 hours while
David Blyar, Gina Stonehouse,
Ashley Dostie, Cynthia
Huntington, Amanda O'Connell,
Melissa Schade, Deanna O'Neal
and Amy Jurner were each recog-

Technology expo draws hundreds [,


By MC2 Daniel Gay
Navy Public Affairs Support Element
East Detachment Southeast


More than 20 exhibitors
showed off their lat-
est technology and
equipment April 20 at the NAS
Jacksonville Technology Expo.
A steady stream of personnel
attended the event at the NAS
Jacksonville Officers' Club.
The products being shown
were diverse in nature from
more durable computers intend-
ed for hard use in combat
zones to more efficient storage
options for everyday office use.

"There is something here for
every type of command," said
Cmdr. Kevin Rasch, officer in


charge, Helicopter Sea Combat
Wing Atlantic, Detachment
Jacksonville, which hosted the
event. "There are a lot of military
applications as well as furniture
and data management hardware
most of us could use every day."
"I came here because I wanted
to see what was out there that
may be available soon in com-
bat areas," said Marine Corps
Sgt. Peter Nunez, of the Center
for Naval Aviation Technical
Training Unit Jax.
"Being a combat veteran I know
some technology can be outdated,
so being here at the expo lets me
know there's a lot of new things
designed for the combat zone."
Rasch, who has attended other
technology fairs, explained that


he has already seen some items
from previous fairs in use today.
"I have seen some of the items
in use in the hangars, especially
with a lot of the new green tech-
nologies and space-saving equip-
ment," said Rasch.
The fair was also an opportuni-
ty for people to talk directly with
company representatives, and see
improvements to gear they have
previously operated.
"I talked to the General Electric
representative and he had new
versions of items I have used
before, like the vapor tracer," said
Nunez.
"I got to look at a lot of the
newer more efficient technologies,
which can make locating things
like gas weapons, much easier."

est imaging technology with Capt. John Rice, executive officer of NAVFAC

The fair happens every year at drawing in representatives from

technology expo was a success, lations in the area.


NAVFAC Southeast celebrates diversity


From Naval Facilities Engineering
Command Southeast Public Affairs

Naval Facilities Engineering
Command (NAVFAC) South-
east celebrated a week of
diversity with activities focused on
multicultural awareness through
guest speakers, training, displays and
food, and ending with an awards cer-
emony April 15.
"Diversity is a mixture, a mixture of
people, all kinds of people, all walks of
life, all different cultures," said Vicki
Blankenship, contract specialist. "It
just means that it makes life and work
all that more exciting."
The celebration started out with
guest speaker Alan Gropman Ph.D.,
retired Air Force colonel and distin-
guished professor of National Security
Policy from the National Defense
University Industrial College of the
Armed Forces, speaking to nearly 300
NAVFAC employees at the All Saints
Chapel at NAS Jacksonville.
Gropman discussed the history of
blacks in the military that most never
learned about in school. He spoke of
the challenges, differences and suc-
cesses of blacks in the military.
When discussing diversity Gropman
said, "There is only one color in the
Navy and that is blue."
Throughout the week employees

had the opportunity to watch a video
that displayed subtle discrimination
and negative gestures called "micro-
inequities" that can occur in every-
day conversations. The intent was to
raise awareness of communication and
respect in the workplace, emphasizing
the importance of thoughtfulness and
understanding.
One day was set aside to walk
through the work areas and view dis-
plays about multicultural observances
which included educational materials
and food made from different parts of
the country or ethnic backgrounds.


Another speaking engagement
brought employees the opportunity to
hear from two women and the chal-
lenges faced by people with disabili-
ties. Jennifer Murphy, retired Navy,
who has worked with the Clay County
Health Department and currently
works for the Jacksonville USO spoke
about overcoming a brain injury which
she sustained in a fall while on active
duty. She said it didn't prevent her
from accomplishing her goals and
hopes to be an advocate for disabled
service members.
Wendy Hoss is visually impaired and
works full-time for the State of Florida
as a rehabilitation supervisor. She
spoke of her work assisting clients with
visual disabilities and provided insight
on the difficulties from the prospective
of the job seeker and the service pro-
vider in finding employment.
The week ended with an awards
ceremony recognizing several employ-
ees who have recently received diver-
sity awards. Angela Bushey received
the Latino Style Award while Angela
Johnson and Robin Perkins were rec-
ognized as Modern Day Technology
Leaders.
Employees from all over the South-
east benefited from the event as each
of the Public Works Departments in
the region held similar events for their
employees outside of Jacksonville.


How to keep your home safe

during the summer months

From the NAS lax Security Physical Security Division

As you know, crime is on the increase in most
cities. It is also becoming more prevalent in
small communities. Thinking that it can only
happen to someone else and doing nothing to pre-
pare yourself or take precautionary measure in case
makes you the perfect victim criminals are looking
for.
When people think about personal security, they
often focus on safety tips while in public places. This is
extremely important, but it is also essential to consider
safety measures around the home. There are several
things you can do to make your home a secure haven.
How to create a safe home
Many years ago, people left their doors unlocked and
windows up, but in most places, those days are long
gone. Crime rates are higher than ever, so homeown-
ers should make their house as secure as possible.
Start by installing durable locks on all your doors
and windows. Burglars are interested in finding the
easiest opportunity, so if your home is strongly forti-
fied they will be likely to move on. Never leave spare
keys under your doormat or in any other conspicuous
place.
Criminals know the most common hiding spots for
keys; so don't give them easy access. Install a security
alarm system in your home, or if that's too expensive,
place a sign in your yard. Again, a law breaker will be

The 'Me Time' challenge
By Beth Wilson
Special ContributorSPOUSES PERSPECTIVE


L ast week, I an-
nounced the Year of
the Enlisted Spouse.
I cannot tell you my excite-
ment about this initiative!
Plans are in high gear so
stay tuned for more.
I have a question for you.
What did you do for your-
self today? What about this
week? When was the last
time you did something
you totally enjoyed, that
recharged your batteries or
fueled your passion? How
often do you make sure you
'take care of you?' Are you
like me and feel guilty tak-
ing time to do something
for you? Do you look at the
family budget, the needs
of the family, your hectic
schedule and find yourself
pushing 'taking care of you'
to the back burner?
Guess what, you are not
alone. Military spouse and
self-care expert, Peggy
Nolan, recently joined Navy
Homefront Talk/Enlisted
Spouse Radio to talk about
self-care. The statistics
she offered on the amount
of time per week that we
spend on 'us' versus the
amount spent on others is
starkly out of proportion.
What is the result of a
long practice of not balanc-
ing our lives with work,
responsibilities and rec-
reation? We become edgy,
perhaps impatient and


short-tempered. We are out
of balance. We can become
depressed. Keep that up
long enough and in some
cases it can potentially lead
to neglect or even abuse of
the people we love.
We can only be good for
those around us if we take
care of ourselves. On an
airplane we are instruct-
ed to put the oxygen mask
on ourselves first before
attempting to help others.
You are no help if you pass
out! Self care or 'me time' is
vital. It is putting the oxy-
gen mask on us so we can
help others put on theirs.
We must determine to take
care of ourselves, our emo-
tional, physical and spiri-
tual health.
So, what do you do for
you? What excites you?
What makes you feel like
a million bucks when
you're done? What is your
passion? Is it coffee with
the girls, a walk or hike?
Working out? Roller skat-
ing? Scrapbooking or pho-
tography? A massage or
pedicure? Maybe window
shopping or ... ?
As part of the Year of
the Enlisted Spouse we are
launching the "Me Time"
challenge. Join our team
as we set 'Me Time Goals'
and meet them. I am work-
ing out three times a week


for my physical health,
joining a Bible Study for
my spiritual health and
Scrapbooking once a week
for my emotional health. My
team and listeners are also
taking the challenge. Please
join us, Set a goal for one or
more area of your life; emo-
tional, spiritual or physical.
Then logon to the Enlisted
Spouse Community forum
(www.enlistedspousecom-
munity.net/forum), email or
tweet me with your goals.
You'll hear from us on a
regular basis to keep us
focused on taking care of
us.
Martha Washington
wrote, "I am determined to
be cheerful and happy in
whatever situation I may
find myself. For I have
learned that the great-
er part of our misery or
unhappiness is determined
not by our circumstance
but by our disposition." We
may not be able to change
the responsibilities but
with proper self-care we
can be cheerful, happy and
healthy. You are worth it!

Is someone
watching you?
Many criminals will
watch a home before they
break in. They look for reg-
ular routines so they know
when you are least likely to
be home, and pick out the
easiest way to get inside.
Varying your personal rou-
tine can discourage a pred-

certain when your home
will be vacant.

truly care for our base.
We want to maintain our
leadership as environmen-
tal stewards within the
Jacksonville community.
'Going green' is not some-
thing we do just once a year
- it's our commitment to
keep our base and shoreline
clean year round."
"We plan to spend this
morning setting an example
for the Northeast Florida
community by cleaning up
our five miles of shoreline
at NAS Jax. We have a
good crowd out here today
and it's a great event that
shows the importance of
maintaining a natural
balance within our envi-
ronment," said Natural
Resources Manager
Christine Bauer.
Assistant Natural
Resources Manager, and
organizer of the event,
Angela Glass said, "Every
year we pick up tons of junk
from along our five miles
of the St. Johns River so
our stewardship is vital to
combat the never-ending
challenge of careless people
who come in contact with
our river. The St. Johns
is designated by the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency as one of only 14
American Heritage Rivers.
The quality of a river's
water is largely determined
by activities within the land
area surrounding it that's
why keeping our shoreline
clean is important."
"We have manatees and
a large variety of fish and
bird life in these areas. It's
important to keep the river

and shoreline clean to pro-
tect the wildlife," said NAS
Jax Assistant Hazardous
Waste Manager Billie
Brownfield. "We get a huge
amount of trash on our
shorelines due to wind and
currents with much of it
coming from the Buckman
Bridge. By holding these
clean-ups, it helps keep the
trash situation under con-
trol."
The event concluded with
a barbeque where NAS
Jacksonville CMDCM(SW/
SS) Jeff Hudson announced
the winning group who
found the 'most unusual
piece of debris' during the
clean-up. The award went
to volunteers from the

Environmental engineers


learn about squadron missions


By Brian Chwalisz
lax Air News Intern

Naval Facilities
Engineering Command
Southeast (NAVFAC SE)
attended a P-3C Orion
weapons display April 6 in
NAS Jacksonville Hangar
511 for its environmental
engineers.
Greg Timoney, of
NAVFAC SE's National
Environmental Policy Act,
Planning and Compliance
Office, organized the dis-
play and provided in-depth
information about the indi-
vidual weapons carried by
both the P-3C Orion and
the next generation P-8A
Poseidon.
"We have put on this
display because we real-
ize that things become
abstract for the employ-
ees who are working in a
building away from the
flight line," said Timoney.
"We feel that it's important
that our people who work
at NAS Jacksonville have a
firsthand understanding of
the missions our squadrons
perform."
With the assistance of
AOl(AW) Aaron Tackett
of Commander, Patrol
and Reconnaissance
Wing Eleven Weapons


M embers of
Navy Region
Southeast Reserve
Component Command
(NRSE RCC) gath-
ered together April 14 to
watch a documentary
film on the Holocaust as
part of the National Days
of Remembrance of the
Victims of the Holocaust
(DRVH) that were held
this year from April 11
through the 18th
The National DRVH has
been held since its begin-
ning in 1981 from the
Sunday before the Jewish
remembrance of Yom
Hashoah through the fol-
lowing Sunday.
It is held in remembrance
of the approximately Six
million Jews murdered by
the Nazi regime and their
collaborators during the
time leading up to and
including World War II.
In attendance was Capt.
Rey Consunji, command-
er, NRSE RCC. Moved by

Committee, introduces the documentary, "Stories of
Freedom: What you do Matters" to member of his command.


the film and proud of the
Sailors who took the time to
participate, he said, "there
are people in the world who
ignorantly claim that the
Holocaust never happened,
and we combat that attitude
by educating ourselves,
through discussion and
by participating in events
like the National Days of


Remembrance."
The documentary, called
Stories of Freedom: What
you do Matters, was pro-
vided by the United States
Holocaust Memorial
Museum.

material, go to http://www.

AO1(AW) Aaron Tackett of Commander, Patrol and
Reconnaissance Wing Eleven explains the weapons systems
utilized on the P-3 Orion to a group of environmental engi-


neers at Hangar 511 April 6.
Department, Timoney led
discussions on the capabili-
ties of the P-3 while dem-
onstrating the tools used by
the aircrews during their
missions.
"It is important that we
acknowledge the wide vari-
eties of weapons systems
used by P-3C squadrons to
complete missions over land
and water," said Timoney.
"Even though this aircraft
looks like an airliner, it
really is a war bird."
Erico Latham of NAVFAC
SE Regional Environmental
Division was one of the
engineers who observed the
display. "I really enjoyed
seeing the weapons," said


Latham. "It demonstrated
that the group of service
members we have here at
NAS Jax are top notch and
the facilities they work in
are great."
The entire display lasted
just over an hour and con-
cluded with a quick bus
tour of the flight line before
everyone was brought back
to the Anti-Submarine
Warfare Project Office.
"I think that anytime I
can get the engineers to
look at real steel it's a plus,"
said Timoney. "Now they
will go to their offices with
a better idea of what these
systems are and the how
people they serve use them."

Sailors from Fleet Area Control and Surveillance Facility (FACSFAC) Jax gather in front of
the Gulfstream G550 after enjoying a short flight in the aircraft. "SeaLord and Gulfstream
developed a relationship where they fly out into our airspace and we control them. Once
a year, they come down and show us their aircraft and take a group of our Sailors on a
flight. Today was my first trip and I think I'd like to move my office to the inside of this
aircraft," said FACSFAC Jax Executive Officer Lt. Cmdr. Cornealis Donahoe.

Brian Dickerson,
senior production test
pilot for Gulfstream,
based in Savannah,
-= Ga., thanks a group of
13 Sailors from Fleet
Area Control and
S.i Surveillance Facility
(FACSFAC) Jax for
their assistance dur-
ing Gulfstream's test
flight operations. The
Sailors were treated
to a special flight in
a Gulfstream G550
SApril 19. "We are
here today because of
our relationship with
SeaLord. In our mis-
sion to test and build these aircraft, we have to fly them to test the systems and the abil-
ity to go out and use this airspace is convenient for us and the ability to work with these
controllers is just priceless. This is just a small token of our appreciation to come here and
show them our aircraft," said Dickerson.

different departments in
my organization & get
limited response. There
are no gimmicks, no
surprises & and no hid-
den factors. We have
everything anybody else
can offer, in other
words, not iust a great
income, but all the good-
ies too! Commissions &
incentives, vacations,
trips, rewards, health,
dental, life & vision
insurance and a 401(k).
Starting income, up to
$45K $75K per year.
You can even qualify for
a signing bonus. Sounds
good so far, doesn't it?
That's why I can't
understand why in the
world you wouldn't
investigate this opportu-
nity. This week I'm hir-
ing for sales in our
