Iraq, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
The battalion honored its fallen Seabees May 8 in its annual
memorial service held at the unit's headquarters aboard NAS

price paid by our brothers and their families so all Americans can
live their lives in freedom," said EOC(SCW) Michael Falk, master

Lindell and friend: Old men Muppets
By Sarah Smiley
Lindell and his friend, Preston,
have not known each other
long. They only met during
the first few weeks after our family
had moved to Maine. We came from
Florida, where our older boys, Ford
and Owen, had close friendships
with other boys in the neighborhood
and their schools. (Saying goodbye
to friends is an occupational hazard
for military families, and one of the
worst aspects of the lifestyle.) But
Lindell was only 18-months old when
we left Florida, so still too young to
have any good friends that he could
remember and miss.
You wouldn't gather any of this from
watching Preston and Lindell now. By
all outward appearances, they seem
to have known each other since the
beginning of time. Indeed, Lindell
calls Preston, "My old friend Preston"
(said with a slight sour tone, the way
someone might speak of a longtime
neighbor they've competed with for
the "best lawn" or the "biggest catch").
A friend compares the duo to the old
men Muppets on Sesame Street. Other
people say they are like two grumpy
grandpas fishing together in a small
boat in the middle of a lake. And more
than one observer has called Preston
and Lindell "codependent."
The effect is strengthened by the
fact that Preston and Lindell are the
same age, with only four month's dif-
ference between them. They are the
same height, and nearly the same
build, with equally disproportionate,
Then there is the issue of their
individual temperaments. Where
Lindell can be cranky and unwilling
to share, Preston happily accommo-
dates to keep his friend happy, but
not without a payback later for the
inconvenience. (This would be like two
old men squabbling over who has the
I understand there were changes in
the law concerning credit cards this
year. All of the changes sound as if
they will benefit me. Am I correct in
MoneyChic says: The majority of
the changes are in the consumer's
favor; however there are a few issues
that were not addressed in the new
There is no cap on interest rates,
with many companies changing their
policy to no longer charge a fixed
interest rate on balances, but a vari-
greener lawn, with one neighbor con-
ceding, then "accidentally" dropping
bird seeds on his friend's yard.)
When Preston is adventurous and
mischievous, he drags Lindell along
("Let's go in Ford and Owen's room
and take Star Wars toys"), and
Lindell's protests ("I don't think this
is a good idea, Preston") only serve to
keep them both out of increasing trou-
ble. If they egg a house when they are
older (and I hope they won't), Lindell
will buy the eggs, but he will grumble
and complain all the way.
Interestingly, however, this side of
Lindell's personality seldom surfaces
when Preston isn't around. In other
words, Lindell only acts like an old-
man muppet with his best friend.
Here's how a typical conversation
between Preston and Lindell usually
Lindell (playing with his toys in the
living room): Where is you Preston?
Lindell (getting up now to inves-
tigate, his shoulders slouched with
exasperation): Preston? Preston where
Preston (playing with something
else in adjoining room): I'm right
Lindell (stomping back to his spot in
the living room): Oh, alright then.
(Several minutes later. Still in their
respective rooms playing.)
Preston: Lindell? Lindell, come
Lindell (grumpily): Alright, Preston.
Just a minute. Preston? Preston,
where is you?
Preston: Lindell, I'm in he-ah. Come
No, they don't always say much to
other, but they seem to have a shared
rhythm, and they are keenly aware
of even if slightly annoyed by the
able rate. A variable rate changes
every time the federal government
raises interest rates. The credit card
company does not have to send you a
notice when the variable rate rises.
So the bottom line is that if your
card company sends you a notice that
your rate is changing to variable, then
know that your rate will fluctuate
with the federal rate.
Right now the federal rate is not
bad, but there have been times in his-
tory when it rises high.
Also, as credit card companies are
losing their revenue due to the chang-
I like to think that Preston and
Lindell have learned this easy friend-
ship by watching their mothers inter-
act with one another. But the truth is,
I've rarely seen such honest kinship
between two individuals, much less
two 3-year olds.
Next year, the pair will be sepa-
rated as Preston begins Pre-K and
Lindell misses the cutoff date by just
a few months. Oddly, the separation
could prove to be more awkward and
upsetting than when Ford and Owen
left their friends behind in a different
part of the country.
Much of this may be due to the fact
that Ford and Owen, who are sep-
arated by only 24 months and two
days, have always had each other. No
friendship has ever matched what
they have as brothers. Without a sib-
ling that close in age, it appears that
Lindell has formed this same secu-
rity with Preston. Next year will be
a growing experience as they learn to
adapt without the other.
Yet I have no doubt that their
friendship will endure. Preston's dad
proved this last Christmas when we
got several families together for a
We were staying in a large, rented
house, so the kids were at one end,
near the bedrooms and playroom, and
we were at the other, in the kitchen.
The adults were talking and having
a good time, when suddenly Lindell
appeared and said quite urgently,
"Preston needs help wiping his butt."
Then he ran off again, toward the
bathroom where Preston was waiting
on the toilet.
As we watched Lindell run away,
Preston's dad lowered his drink
and said, "Now that is a good friend

the transition to NAS Jacksonville paved
the way for the remaining NAS Brunswick

NAS Jacksonville Chief of Police I m
The national "Click It or Ticket" Campaign runs
May 18 June 1 when law enforcement agencies
across the country mobilize to increase awareness
and promote safety belt
safety belts reduce the
risk of serious bodily
injury or death in motor
vehicle crashes by 50
percent. This year we
hope to improve the
overall safety onboard
NAS Jacksonville by
encouraging more peo-
ple to buckle up during
the Click It or Ticket
Even though we peri-
odically conduct safety
belt inspections on base,
the average is five to six
percent of our base per-
usage. It's a fact that vehicle

sonnel are still not wearing seatbelts while operating their
vehicles on station. Failure to buckle up by drivers and
passengers allows law enforcement officers to conduct a
primary traffic stop and issue a traffic citation for the
infraction. Florida law requires that all front seat occu-
pants must utilize safety restraints (seatbelts). Children
between the ages of 4 and 17 years of age must be secured
in a safety vehicle restraint. Children from birth to age 3
must be secured in an approved child restraint seat.
Although every military installation, including NAS
Jacksonville, enforces the seatbelt law daily, during the
Click It or Ticket campaign patrol officers will man high-
traffic areas to specifically target people who are not buck-
led up. The NAS Jacksonville Police Department upholds
a "zero tolerance" policy for failure to use vehicle safety
According to the National Center for Health Statistics
and the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, motor vehicle
crashes are the single largest cause of unintentional injury
for ages one through 65, accounting for approximately
42,643 injuries annually. The National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA), reported seatbelt use in
2007 stood at 82 percent, a slight gain from 81 percent in
"The purpose of this campaign is to educate and to
heighten awareness for the importance of wearing seat-
belts. Remember that 'Seatbelts Save Lives' and hope-
fully, we can save someone by reminding them to buckle
up," said NAS Jacksonville Police Capt. James Oswald,
department safety officer.
"As of April 15, we've had 129 motor vehicle accidents
on base, with 11 of those accidents resulting in inju-
ries, including two motor vehicle fatalities. At this rate,
we'll exceed the total accidents reported last year," added
When someone is injured in traffic accidents on base, it
impacts more than just the individuals involved there is
also a loss of work production, monetary impact to the gov-
ernment and the individual, installation support capability
and Navy readiness.
Buckling up makes sense, because if you are issued a
ticket on base, it will cost you four points against your
base driving record. You are also required to attend an
approved driver improvement course. Failure to comply
may result in a suspension of your base driving privileges.

Sheriff's Office state that tickets received off station

A group of military and civilian motorcyclists from NAS Jax, NS Mayport and NSB Kings Bay, Ga., participate in the Runway

"Senior leadership at every command must redouble their efforts
to ensure safe riding habits are ingrained with our Sailors," said

for safety rodeo
By Clark Pierce
Service members from Northeast Florida and South
Georgia converged on NAS Jacksonville May 6 to
take part in the fifth Recreational Safety Rodeo at
the base commissary parking lot. The event showcased
the latest safety information related to motorcycles, bicy-
cling, ATVs, boating, personal watercraft, scuba diving
and other recreational activities.
The rodeo kicked off with a group motorcycle "runway
ride" led by NAS Jax Police Department, the NAS Jax
Airfield Manager and Jacksonville Sheriffs Office (JSO)
Motor Unit. Taking off from the taxiway at Hangar 511,
the ride included every runway (temporarily closed to air
traffic), plus, a drive along the seawall before exiting the
airfield to drive on base roadways and end at the commis-
sary parking lot.
Ride organizer Carl
Bennett, a motorcycle
safety instructor with
Cape Fox Professional
Services at the NAS Jax
Safety Office, welcomed
more than 70 riders from
NAS Jax, NSB Kings Bay,
Ga., and NS Mayport.
"May is motorcycle
awareness month and
today's event shows
the commitment of our
Sailors, DoD civilians
and retirees to enjoying
accident-free riding every
day," said Bennett.
He introduced JSO

SNAS Jax Safety Rodeo."
"Today, we'll demonstrate

ple think are impossible

cles. We believe that the
more you learn to safely
handle your bike, your
confidence and well being
will only increase. That's

Jimmy Mitchell of the Center As the group motorcycle
for Information Dominance at ride arrived in the com-
missary parking lot, NAS
Jacksonville Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
welcomed the crowd by talking about the critical need for
recreational safety awareness.
"We've got a lot of great events this morning and I appre-
ciate you all coming out here today. We are certainly try-
ing to do our part to make safety a fun event. Since the
day I arrived here about three years ago, my number one
priority has been to make sure we safely accomplish our
mission. Sadly, over the last month, we lost two Sailors
from NAS Jacksonville in traffic fatalities so this event
is really important. I'd like to thank the safety office and
First Class Petty Officers Association for putting this all
together," said Scorby.
CMDCM(SW/SS) Jeff Hudson reminded attendees that,
"Our most precious resource is our people. As warfighters,
we focus on safety and protecting the lives of those under
our command. Yet when we're off-duty, we too often relax
our focus and that puts our Sailors at higher risk."
Hudson added, "As Memorial Day weekend and the
Critical Days of Summer approach, please remember that
traffic accidents often involve speed, lack of seatbelts,
fatigue, and too often alcohol. Thank you all for com-
ing out today and doing your part to live safely.
NAS Jax Safety Officer Ron Williamson said, "This
rodeo is a safety stand-down that's fun, informative and
memorable. Sailors and civilians sign in for their safety
passport and visit information booths. This event is very
interactive and a great lead-in to the 101 Critical Days of
Summer that run from Memorial Day through Labor Day."
"I think this is a great event. The police department is
out here telling us about how they help the community to
keep them safe. I think it's great to get out of a classroom
environment and be out talking to knowledgeable represen-
tatives about safety issues," said AWV2(AW/NAC) Brian
Wilkerson of VP-45.

From Page 1
Paying the ultimate sacrifice were SW2(SW)
Jason Dwelley, E03 Christopher Dickerson,
BU2 Michael Anderson, E02 Trace Dossett,
CM2 Scott McHugh, BU2 Robert Jenkins and
SW3 Ronald Ginther.
Distinguished guests, families and ship-
mates joined NMCB-14 Commanding Officer
Capt. Joseph Hinson to honor their service.
"Once again, we're gathered to honor the
our shipmates killed in action. It has been
more than 67 years since the first Seabee
from NMCB-14 gave his life for his country,
but only six years since the most recent loss of
our comrades in arms. We cherish their memo-
ries and we share a solemn pride in each of
these shipmates," said Hinson in his memorial
"Thomas Jefferson stated that the tree of lib-
erty must be refreshed from time to time with
the blood of patriots and tyrants. Our Seabees
did their part in refreshing the tree of liberty."
Guest speaker was Capt. (select) Donald
Maconi, NAVFAC Southeast contingency
engineer and the former NMCB-14 opera-
tions officer during the battalion's 2004 Iraq
deployment. He currently serves as OIC of
Naval Reserve Contingency Engineering Unit
"It's my honor to be back at 14 today because
it's important to remember the events of five
and a half years ago. Shortly after the attack -
when I looked at the list of seven fatalities I
was struck that I knew some of them, but not
all. So I made a pact with myself to memorize
those seven names. I also committed to not-
ing the names and faces of Seabees and other
shipmates that I work with because you
never know what the next minute or next day
will bring," said Maconi.
He added, "We in 14 will be forever associ-
ated with the sacrifice that our seven broth-
ers made in 2004. As part of the larger Navy
Construction Force family, the sacrifice of our
battalion will never be forgotten. We must also
show our utmost respect to the families of our
fallen and wounded. Your loved ones' memo-
ries will always inspire the men and women of
the Navy Construction Force."
Attending the event were Capt. Doug
Morton, commander of NAVFAC Southeast,
and his wife, Margaret, along with former
NMCB-14 commanding officers John Larson,
Ron Helton and Fred Bossert, plus former
CMDCM Mike Woods.

Improve your life skills
The 'Secrets of Happiness' (Part 2) with free knowledge
By Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top
Naval Hospital Jacksonville
S ecret #1 choice and freedom
One of the things that make humans dif-
ferent from the rest of life on this planet is
our ability to make choices and act for ourselves.
Unlike plants, which are largely acted on by their
environment, and animals, which are often strongly
influenced by instinct humans have the ability
to change their environment, ignore instinct and
manipulate their own desires, attitudes and behav-
ior to a greater degree than any
other species. Learning how to
use our choices to increase free-
dom and joy is one of the most
important skills we can acquire
Choose To Be Happy
When I was growing up I was
kind of a picky eater. I hated
onions, mushrooms, peppers and
tomatoes. Then, shortly after high
school, I spent time as a mission-
ary in South Korea. While I was
there I had to eat some pretty
crazy stuff. Onions and mush-
rooms were the least of my wor-
ries. I don't think a day went by C n
that I didn't have to eat some- Chaplain (L
thing that I would have refused before.
I remember one day when I first arrived, I was
picking peppers out of my lunch with a scowl on my
face. One of the other missionaries said to me, "As
long as you keep picking stuff out of your food you
will never be happy here. You're telling your mind
that you hate the food and that you are unhappy.
You know you don't have to hate those. Just decide
you like them, act like you like them, and eventu-
ally you will."
From that day on, I decided I loved Korean food.
Some foods took longer than others to like, but by
the end of my time there I absolutely loved the food.
It wasn't the food that changed it was me.
If we can only be happy if everything in life is
just the way we want it, we are not going to be very
happy. Life cooks up a wide variety of recipes for
us, many of which we didn't order. The trick is to
choose to be happy with whatever life dishes out.
Abraham Lincoln is reported to have said, "Most
folks are about as happy as they make up their
mind to be."
Happiness is not something that just happens to
us, but it is something that we choose. Have you
ever met somebody who was perpetually optimis-
tic, but extremely unhappy? Me neither. I have
been inspired by many people who, despite being
stressed out or going through tough times, will
always respond to a greeting with a smile and
exclaim, "It's my best day yet!" Make the choice to
be happy act like you are and eventually your
brain will believe you.
Choose To Be Free
Because I had chosen to enjoy all kinds of Korean
food, I had a greater degree of freedom. I could go
to a house or a restaurant and not have to worry
about whether I would be able to enjoy my meal.
Freedom is another important
element in happiness. The key to
true freedom comes from the cor-
rect use of choice. Each choice we
make affects our future choices
our freedom. For example, you
are free to choose to jump off a
cliff, but that choice really limits
what other choices you have after
The trick is understanding
which choices will increase free-
dom and happiness, and which
ones will limit it. Many choices
that seem to be associated with
freedom actually severely restrict
it. Jumping off a cliff may make
) ustin Top you feel "free" for a moment, but
once you do it you are no longer free to change your
Below, I have chosen three common choice-
induced conditions that can limit our freedom and
inhibit our happiness.
Addiction These usually come from people
choosing to explore their freedom in the wrong way.
People turn to things that will produce pleasure
and distract them from the problems in their life.
Whether it be substance abuse, sex, pornography,
gambling, or others, addiction restricts freedom,
destroys self esteem and limits happiness.
Debt Many people think buying things will give
them more freedom and happiness, but if it becomes
excessive it can put a huge financial burden on you.
One of the keys to happiness is finding financial
freedom and stability.
Health In addition to the numerous physiologi-
cal reasons healthfulness can make you happy,
being healthy also increases your freedom. Choose
now to do all you can to keep your mind and body
Sometimes we must impose restrictions on our-
selves to insure our own freedom. Remember that
self-control is one of the greatest tools to help you
find freedom and happiness.

Pokelwaldt's first duty
station was USS Laboon
(DDG 58) in Norfolk, Va.
After his completion of his
sea tour, he was transferred
to Key West, Fla. where
met Anne Schultz, his
future wife. When advanced
to first class petty officer,
he took a break from the
airfield life by excelling as a
base security patrolman.
In 2003, Pokelwaldt
moved to Norfolk to join the
staff of Commander, Second
Fleet. After completing
his tour, he moved to the
waterfront to join the crew
of USS James E. Williams

Pokelwaldt took advan-
tage of his time on board
to hone his skills as a
leader and a warfighter -
and earn the distinction
of being selected as 2007
Sailor of the Year.
The end of 2008 was also
the end of Pokelwaldt's
time in Virginia. After
a brief trip to Lakehurst,
N.J., he arrived at NAS
Jacksonville where he
joined the Air Operations
In the process of tak-
ing on the new challeng-

When asked how he felt
when told about his selec-
tion, Pokelwaldt stated,
"My command master chief
called me into his office
after PT and let me know I
had been selected. At first,
I was shocked and it didn't
really sink in right away.
When I got home and dis-
cussed it with my wife, we
decided it would be best for
the family, so I accepted the

Scorby credits personnel
for his successful tour
By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO
NAS Jacksonville Commanding
Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr.
bids farewell to the station dur-
ing the change of command ceremony
today at 10 a.m. in Hangar 117. During
the ceremony, Capt. Jeffrey Maclay will
assume command of NAS Jacksonville.
Rear Adm. Tim Alexander, command-
er, Navy Region Southeast, will be the
Scorby assumed command of NAS
Jacksonville Aug. 10, 2007. During his
27 years in the Navy, Scorby worked in
a variety of different jobs all over the
world, but says his tour here has been
extraordinary and memorable.
"This has definitely been the most
diverse job I've ever had in my career
and as I've always said, 'if you don't like
what your doing, just wait two minutes
and you'll be doing something different,'"
remarked Scorby, laughing.
"Some things that will always stay
with me from my tour here was when
President Obama visited and had the
opportunity to talk to our Sailors; the
air show a tremendous event having
250,000 people aboard the base; getting
to fly with the Blue Angels in 2009; how
we and the City of Jacksonville honor
our fallen heroes seeing everyone
lined up along the street paying their
respects is just overwhelming; Individual
Augmentee luncheons; and all the other
events that are held here daily. There is
just so much and I've enjoyed it all," he
Of course Scorby is quick to attribute
the successes of the base to his team.
"I can't say enough about the NAS Jax
team both military and civilian. From
the day I took over and published my
command philosophy, it's been one team,
one fight," said Scorby. "We've accom-
plished a lot and won some awards
including third place in the CNIC instal-
lation excellence competition. That's all
been done because of teamwork. I've
always tried to come into work and make
accomplishing our mission something we
enjoy and look forward to."
"Everything our team has accom-
plished the past three years is pretty
remarkable. We're here for the fleet,
fighter and family so when we make
improvements, we try to ensure it
involves all three in this triad," he con-
tinued. "So if you look at it in that per-
spective for the fighters, we've built two
new hangars, renovated several others,
assisted the BRAC personnel transfer-
ring from NAS Brunswick and we are
working the P-3 transition and Helicopter
Anti-submarine Squadrons to Helicopter
Maritime Strike Squadron transition."
"We've also renovated the chapel, Fleet
and Family Support Center, built a new
Home and Garden center, new base hous-
ing, Youth Activities Center and just
broke ground on a new childcare cen-
ter, P-8 training facility and golf course
parking lot. We're also renovating the air
control tower and we've demolished a lot
of the old, dilapidated buildings," Scorby
Scorby is enthusiastic about the future
of NAS Jacksonville. "I don't see any-
thing but great things for NAS Jax.
The face of what the station looks like is
changing with brand new aircraft and
facilities. Some very exciting things are
happening here," he stated.
So what will he miss most about being
stationed here? "Definitely the people.
Chris and I have made a lot of great
friends here, both on and off base. I've
had the chance to work with so many
people out in town congressional
offices, senate offices, Navy League,
Salvation Army, USO, Red Cross, Rotary,
Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society,
Combined Federal Campaign these are
all boards I've sat on," said Scorby. "And,
of course all the people I work with every
day our department heads and ten-
ant command leadership -- no one does
it better. We're here to support the fleet,
fighter and family and the Chief of Naval
Operations' global maritime strategy.
Power projection begins at NAS Jax and
no one does it better."
Scorby's next tour will be as execu-
tive assistant to Assistant Secretary of
the Navy for Installations, Energy and
Environment in Washington, D.C. "I
look forward to this opportunity and new
challenge. I've loved my time here and
it's been the most professionally and per-
sonally rewarding tour of my career," he

Gates calls for significant cuts in defense overhead
By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
Defense Secretary Robert
M. Gates used the
occasion of the 65th
Anniversary of the Victory in
Europe to declare war on duplica-
tive overhead, bloat and needless
spending in the Department of
In his May 8 speech at the
Eisenhower Library in Abilene,
Kan., Gates called for a reduc-
tion in overhead for the depart-
ment, and said he wants the DoD
to take a hard, realistic look at
what defense capabilities America
really needs in the 21st Century.
"In each instance we must ask:
First, is this respectful of the
American taxpayer at a time of
economic and fiscal duress?" he
said. "And second, is this activ-
ity or arrangement the best use of
limited dollars, given the pressing
needs to take care of our people,
win the wars we are in, and invest
in the capabilities necessary to
deal with the most likely and
lethal future threats?"
The secretary called for a two
to three percent reduction in over-
head costs in the fiscal 2012 bud-
get request with the savings
dedicated to force structure the
formations that fight our nation's
Gates noted that Dwight D.
Eisenhower, who served as presi-
dent from 1953 to 1961, led the
Allied armies to victory over
Nazi Germany in 1945 and con-
fronted the Soviet Union in
some of the coldest days of the
Cold War. Given his prestige as
a five-star general, Gates said,
Eisenhower was able to make the
tough choices needed for the U.S.
Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates
military to be balanced and ready.
Still, Gates continued,
Eisenhower maintained "his pas-
sionate belief that the U.S. should
spend as much as necessary on
national defense and not one
penny more," Gates said. "And
with his peerless credentials and
standing, he was uniquely posi-
tioned to ask hard questions,
make tough choices, and set firm
The secretary said he doesn't
see that willingness inside or out-
side the Pentagon anymore.
Since the terror attacks of 9-11,
the defense base budget not
including money for the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan has nearly
doubled, Gates said. The gusher
of money has ended, and given
America's difficult economic cir-
cumstances, military spending
on things large and small should
expect closer, harsher scrutiny, he
The secretary is not advocating
wholesale cuts. He said the nation
is still at war and some form of
growth must be maintained to
fight the battles. Maintaining the
brigades, regiments, wings and
ships will require real growth in
the defense budget ranging from
two and three percent above infla-
"In this year's budget request,
the DoD asked for, and I hope
will receive, just under two per-
cent roughly that level of
growth," Gates said. But without
change, this isn't realistic for the
Any change will have to over-
come opposition inside the
Pentagon and on Capitol Hill.
Gates pointed to the alternative
engine for the F-35 Joint Strike
Fighter and the C-17 airlifter pro-
grams as examples. The depart-
ment does not want or need these
programs, and they were not
included in President Obama's
defense budget request. Yet
Congress may put both programs
back in the budget at a potential
cost of billions.
"I have strongly recommended a
presidential veto if either program
is included in next year's defense
budget legislation," Gates said.
Regular military healthcare
is another budget breaker. DoD
healthcare costs have risen from
$19 billion in 2000 to about $50
billion today. During that time,
the premiums for TRICARE, the
military health insurance pro-
gram, have not risen.
"Many working age military
retirees who are earning full-
time salaries on top of their full
military pensions are opting
for TRICARE even though they
could get health coverage through
their employer, with the taxpayer
picking up most of the tab as the
result," the secretary said.
Both Gates and former Defense
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld tried
to implement modest increas-
es in premiums and co-pays to
help bring costs under control.
Congress and veterans groups
opposed these increases
"Another category ripe for scru-
tiny should be overhead all the
activity and bureaucracy that sup-
ports the military mission," Gates
said. Overhead makes up roughly
40 percent of the defense budget.
While private sector businesses
have flattened and streamlined
the middle and upper echelons,
the DoD continues to maintain
a top-heavy hierarchy that more
reflects 20th Century headquar-
ters superstructure than 21st
"Two decades after the end of
the Cold War led to steep cuts
in U.S. forces in Europe, our
military still has more than 40
generals, admirals or civilian
equivalents based on the conti-
nent, Gates said. "Yet we scold
our allies over the bloat in NATO
This has bred a bureaucracy
with its hands in everything, he
said. A request for a military dog-
handling team for Afghanistan,
for example, must be processed
and validated through five four-
star headquarters before being
"This during an era when more
and more responsibility includ-
ing decisions with strategic con-
sequences is being exercised by
young captains and colonels on the
battlefield," Gates said.
"How many commands or orga-
nizations are conducting repetitive
or overlapping functions whether
in logistics, intelligence, policy or
anything else and could be com-
bined or eliminated altogether?"
Finally, these changes have to
be done with a realistic look at the
threats. "For example, should we
really be up in arms over a tem-
porary projected shortfall of about
100 Navy and Marine strike fight-
ers relative to the number of carri-
er wings, when America's military
possesses more than 3,200 tacti-
cal combat aircraft of all kinds?"
"Does the number of warships
we have and are building really
put America at risk when the U.S.
battle fleet is larger than the next
13 navies combined, 11 of which
belong to allies and partners?
Is it a dire threat that by 2020
the United States will have only
20 times more advanced stealth
fighters than China?"
Gates said Eisenhower, with his
five-stars and lifetime of experi-
ence in military affairs, asked
these same questions and made
these choices, and he was able to
make them stick.
"Therefore, as the DoD pre-
pares next year's fiscal year 2012
budget request, I am directing
the military services, the Joint
Staff, the major functional and
regional commands, and the civil-
ian side of the Pentagon to take a
hard, unsparing look at how they
operate in substance and style
alike," he said. "The goal is to cut
our overhead costs and to transfer
those savings to force structure
and modernization within the pro-
It is time to act, the secre-
tary said. "What is required going
forward is not more study, nor do
we need more legislation. It is not
a great mystery what needs to
change. What it takes is the politi-
cal will, as Eisenhower possessed,
to make hard choices choices
that will displease powerful people
both inside the Pentagon and out."

Delarosa's next stop
From Pag 12
Delarosa then presented the chief with a new silver
dollar. This honored tradition is believed to have been
handed down in colonial times by the British regi-
ments to the newly formed American forces.
Delarosa joined the Navy to travel the world. In
11 years of service, he rose from the rank of airman
recruit to first class petty officer.
"I took the chiefs exam early just to get a feel for the
test and was selected for the board," he said.
His shipmates urged Delarosa to carefully put
together his officer package. He was on his way to a
new assignment in Misawa, Japan when he learned
of his selection for the LDO program. He was reas-
signed to FRCSE in April 2009 to await commission-
"For a first class, having this opportunity is very
humbling. I get to see the fruits of my labor," he said.
"It has been a great ride."
Delarosa will attend LDO Indoctrination School
in Newport, R.I. and Aviation Maintenance Officer
School in Pensacola, Fla. prior to reporting in August
to the VFA-32 at NAS Oceana, Va., where he will
serve as a quality assurance officer.
As an LDO, Delarosa joins a unique group of offi-
cers selected for their technical expertise, discipline
and strong leadership skills. "Limited duty" refers to
the officers' specialized career path and does not refer
to their scope of responsibilities or duties. A bachelor's
degree is not a requirement for LDO commissioning.
Because of their promotion up through the enlisted
ranks, LDOs is often referred to as "Mustangs," a
slang term coined in World War II.

Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs
Due to the May 1 flooding at Navy
Personnel Command (NPC), selec-
tion boards have been delayed -
but none will be canceled, according to
NPC officials May 8.
"The active E-8 board which was in prog-
ress has been suspended. We have also
delayed until further notice the active
0-4 staff board which was to convene
next week," said Capt. Leo Falardeau,
NPC assistant commander for Career
"The floods damaged a substantial
amount of equipment," said Falardeau.
However, critical Sailor personnel data
was pulled and saved. Farlardeau also indi-
cated personnel data held in NPC's com-
puter systems are essential to the board
proceedings and reclamation of that equip-
ment is in progress.
"Once the computer systems come up, we
will take a day to test them. If everything's
in order, we will immediately formulate a
plan to reconvene those boards," Falardeau
said. "We will conduct all boards it will
just be at a later time."
Sailors wondering about the status of
their board packages also need not worry.
"Nothing was lost. Your documents are
safe," said Greg Moody, deputy director of
NPC's customer relations management.
The customer service center, which
Photo by MC1 LaTunya Howard
A02 Jarrod Snell, assigned to Navy Personnel
Command, carries damaged computers from
his work center during flood recovery opera-
tions at Naval Support Activity Mid-South.
The base was closed to residents and non-
mission essential personnel after two days
of rain dumped more than 14 inches in the
area May 1 and 2, causing severe flooding on
parts of the base.
Moody oversees, processes all board pack-
ages for NPC.
"The storm that happened over the week-
end didn't affect board correspondence,"
The mail facility at NPC did not flood.
Additionally, all board correspondence was
retrieved Friday afternoon and transported
for processing. Moody's staff was able to go
back into the building after the water sub-
sided to retrieve the board packages.
"We processed 372 packages and have
moved some of our people to a location
where they can more easily process pack-
ages," said Moody.
Packages are now flowing as normal into
NPC via mail.
However, Moody said emailing and fax-
ing packages into NPC is not recommended
until further notice.
"Documents sent to the boards before the
storm are safe," said Moody. The Selection
Board Portal is active and available for
service members to check the status of the
packages processed through April 30 at:

NDSL Jacksonville Public Affairs
^ r hank you for calling the Navy
Drug Screening Laboratory,
-"Jacksonville" is the automated
greeting customers hear when they phone
the Navy Drug Screening Laboratory,
Jacksonville (NDSL JAX).
The customer is then led down an auto-
mated-phone-tree-path where they most
frequently opt for the Laboratory operator.
At this point, callers hear the pleasant
voice of the command executive secretary
(a retired Army first sergeant): "Hello, this
is Bobbie Wiggins, how may I help you?"
Her delightfully positive disposition rein-
forces the professionalism and efficiency
with which she manages the command
Wiggins is the first point of contact
for the NDSL JAX Outreach Program.
Initiated by Cmdr. Eric Hoffman, com-
manding officer of NDSL JAX, this pro-
gram assists the Laboratory's external
customers: submitting commands' lead-
ership (Commanding Officers, Executive
Officers and Command Master Chiefs) and
Urinalysis Program Coordinators (UPC).
This program is multi-faceted and
includes direct UPC assistance, Laboratory
tours, and information on drug testing.
While this program targets commands in
the local area, all submitting commands
(Navy, Marine Corps and Army) across the
globe are welcome and encouraged to par-
The NDSL JAX Support Services
Department is led by Terri Grau, a retired
Navy Reserve petty officer with over 15
years of accumulated knowledge about the
urinalysis program collection and submis-
Grau maintains a database of all uri-
nalysis submissions from local area com-
mands; this database contains information
on the numbers of specimens submitted
and the different types of discrepancies
observed with these submissions.
She knows many UPCs on a first name
basis and her department is pivotal in this
new program. "This urinalysis outreach
program is very helpful," said Grau. "It
enables each UPC iron out any issues that
he or she may have with urinalysis test-
The NDSL JAX Outreach Program is
also the vehicle for arranging laborato-
ry tours that include a presentation dis-
cussing drug testing and common issues
observed with specimens submitted to
Tours allow command leaders and UPCs
to ask questions of our senior scientists and
to see our operations in action.
Lt. Hak Auth, a senior laboratory scien-
tist with NDSL JAX said, "The tours are
well received by the personnel who find the
information valuable. Although the experi-
ence might be a bit overwhelming from a
scientific standpoint, the tour is quite a
learning experience for everyone."
