dread, but always train for - in this
case, an emergency situation involving an

Lt. Cmdr. James Thompson, assigned
to the HSL-42 "Proud Warriors," initi-

Seahawk on the north sea wall outside
NAS Jacksonville Hangar 1122.
He pressed his radio's transmit button
and announced, "Exercise, exercise, exer-

declaring an in-flight emergency. I am five

The end of Star Wars?
By Sarah Smiley
It took me a while to embrace my
boys' Star Wars craze. This is
probably because I was busy sew-
ing Batman and Flash costumes -
their pre-Star Wars obsession.
In my mental absence, did their
dad, Dustin, introduce them to Star
Wars? Did they find one of his old
posters? Or did they see Darth Vader
on a McDonald's cup? I don't know. By
the time we moved to Maine, we had
an enviable collection of light sabers
and Owen was growing out his hair to
look more like Anakin Skywalker in
the first episode.
It was an even longer period of time
before I allowed the boys to watch the
Star Wars movies. Our neighbor Tony
loaned the boys his copy of Episode 1
and since then, my boys revere Tony
as if he is Santa Claus off duty. Two
years later, we still have Tony's copy
of Episode 1. The boys use it as ran-
som against him.
"Tony, do you have any root beer at
your house? If you let me have some,
I'll release your movie."
Tony, being the Star Wars lover
that he is, graciously plays along.
"Do I hear screaming in the back-
ground, Owen? What is Lindell doing
to my movie? Look, I'll get you your
root beer. Just give me another two
For a while, our lives revolved
around Star Wars. The boys could
turn anything - a spatula, a tooth-
brush, a noodle used for swimming
- into a light saber. I downloaded the
light saber app on my iPhone and all
five of us traveled to Boston to hear
the Boston Pops perform "Star Wars
After I finally gave in and watched
the movies, I came to know and love
the characters as well. I was part of
the inside jokes between Dustin and
the boys. I could use Admiral Ackbar's
line, "It's a trap," at the most oppor-
tune time and make my children
laugh. I ordered myself a hand-knit
cap with Princess Leia buns on it.
At Halloween, I crossed the line
and bought a talking, life-size Darth
Vader. He stands at the foot of the
stairs in our basement, with one arm
partially raised, as if he is greeting
"You are not a Jedi yet," he says
when I pass by with a load of laundry.
I just laugh. "Oh, Vader!"
Whenever guests came by, I encour-
aged - okay, forced - them into the
basement to "see who's living down
there." They were relieved to only find
a cardboard Darth Vader, even he
said, "Release your anger - only your
hatred can destroy me now!"
Maybe this is when the kids' inter-
est in Star Wars waned, because it
just isn't the same when there's
a photo of your mom singing the

Supremes' "Someday We'll Be

So the boys have transitioned to
Harry Potter, and just like before, I
didn't see it coming. Light sabers have
been replaced with magicians' wands.
And instead of hearing "use the force"
four thousand times a day, I'm sur-
rounded by spells like expecto patro-
Sure, they'll always love Star Wars.
I mean, they haven't given back
Tony's movie yet. And occasionally
they pick up the remote control for
the television and spin it like a light
But the crates full of Star Wars
action figures under their beds lay
untouched and I can't remember the
last time Owen pretended that his Big
Wheel is a pod racer.
In fact, Ford sold his Big Wheel at
a garage sale. I am the only one who
says hello to Darth in the basement.
Last week, the boys were playing
Harry Potter in the basement and
that deep voice rose from the floor
vents in the kitchen. It was like hear-
ing an old friend when he told them,
"Join me, it's the only way."
"You tell 'em, Darth."
While I know there will be many
more transitions ahead, this one feels
bitter sweet. Star Wars will always
have special meaning for me.

FROM THE HOMEFRONT
I really need to borrow about $300 for an unexpect-
ed expense. I'll probably be able to pay it back once the
next payday hits, but I really need the money now. My
shipmate said it's illegal for a payday lender to lend to
me since I'm active duty. Besides, my command let us
know that those places are off limits for us anyway.
What's your solution for this situation? I don't have a
credit card for a cash advance, if that is your answer.
MoneyChic says: Not to harp on you, but these
small emergencies are exactly why building a small
savings account is important for everyone. Once you
get through this hurdle, make your next priority to
prevent the situation from occurring again. As John
Powell says, "the only real mistake is the one from
which we learn nothing."
So onto solving your dilemma . . . have you consid-
ered the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society's, Quick
Assist Loan? This is a no interest, few questions asked
loan that may be obtained in as few as 10 minutes.
There are many new options offered in place of
payday loans these days; however you still need to be
careful. Some banks are offering these loans, but still
charging high interest rates when you break down the
numbers. Let me share with you a good list of criteria
created by the National Consumer Law Center for
picking a lender for your situation.
"Genuine and safe payday loan alternatives must
have annual percentage rates, including fees, no high-
er than 36 percent; terms of at least 90 days, repay-
ments in installments and no check-holding or elec-
tronic access to the consumer's bank account."
Hope this helps you with your short term lending
That's my two cents.

Welling takes helm at
Naval Hospital Jacksonville
NH Jax Deputy Public Affairs Officer
Capt. Lynn Welling
of Naval Hospital
Jacksonville July 29 in a
change of command cere-
mony at All Saints Chapel
aboard NAS Jacksonville
relieving Capt. Bruce
Gillingham who heads to
Hawaii to become fleet sur-
geon for the U.S. Pacific
An audience of more
than 400 staff and guests
attended the ceremony.
Featured speakers were
Deputy Surgeon General,
Vice Chief, Bureau of
Medicine and Surgery
Rear Adm. Thomas
Cullison and Commander,
Navy Medicine East and
Naval Medical Center
Portsmouth, Va., Rear
Adm. "Mike" Stocks.
Welling, a former naval
aviator, now an emer-
gency medicine doctor
- returned in May 2010
from his deployment as
Facility (EMF) Kuwait.
As Gillingham was about
to pass the baton to Welling
as NH Jax commanding
officer, Cullison praised the
under Gillingham, particu-
larly noting the hospital's
Family Medicine Residency
Program is one of the
Navy's oldest and most
successful. And he lauded
the mark the hospital has
made as a leader in patient
safety, quality healthcare
and customer satisfaction
as well as supporting the
deployment mission. Noting
Welling's broad experience,
first as a naval aviator,
then in emergency medi-
cine and in his leadership
of EMF Kuwait, Cullison
said, "This is one stellar

Stocks also applauded
the work of NH Jax under
"Our Navy is known as 'a
global force for good' . . .
You've done an absolutely
stellar job," he said.
With an average of 15
percent of the hospital's
military staff deployed to
support operational mis-
sions across the world,
Gillingham drew from the
words of Winston Churchill
in referring to the many
places that Naval Hospital
Jacksonville has people
deployed by saying, "The
sun truly never sets on
Navy Medicine." He added,
"As I speak to you today,
our personnel are serv-
ing n the vanguards of
freedom in Afghanistan,
Iraq, Kuwait, Djibouti and
world-class medical care."
He followed by asking those
in the audience who have
deployed to stand and he
To address how the hos-
pital is able to continue to
provide outstanding care
with such a high deploy-
ment rate, Gillingham said
the answer was, "quite sim-
ple: teamwork. Although
our civilian staff do not
wear a military uniform
they are no less a patriot for
they are equally dedicated
to our mission. Rolling up
their sleeves and picking up
the slack when a co-work-
er deploys, they fill critical
gaps and provide the wis-
dom, experience and conti-
nuity essential to our suc-
cess. There is no way that
we could carry out our mis-
sion without them."
Welling says the hospi-
tal's mission is, "To heal
our nation's heroes. It's just
that simple." He adds, his
role as the commanding
officer is to help the hospi-
tal "become 'the one.' The
one hospital that other hos-
pitals turn to in providing
excellence in healthcare."

anti-ship missile system. The Harpoon's active radar
guidance, warhead design, low-level cruise trajectory and
sea-skim or pop-up maneuvers assure high survivability
and effectiveness. The missile is capable of being launched
from surface ships, submarines, shore batteries or aircraft
such as the P-3C Orion.
Commissioned in 1968, New Orleans was the third U.S.
ship named for the War of 1812 Battle of New Orleans.
Throughout its 30 years of service, the ship took part in
various amphibious exercises and contingency operations
during the Vietnam War, carrying Sailors and Marine
ground forces, helicopters and landing craft. The ship was
decommissioned in 1997.
VP-4 and VP-47 flew another SINKEX on the ex-USS
Monticello (LSD 35) on July 14 using Harpoons and AGM-
65 Mavericks to destroy the target. VP-5 and VP-40 con-
ducted the last of the sinking exercises on July 17 using
Harpoons and Mavericks against the ex-USS Anchorage
(LSD-36). Each crew scored a direct hit, on time.
The AGM-65 Maverick is a tactical, air-to-surface guid-
ed missile designed for close air support, interdiction and
defense suppression mission. It provides stand-off capabil-
ity and high probability of strike against a wide range of
tactical targets, including ships, air defenses, transporta-
tion equipment and fuel storage facilities.
RIMPAC is a biennial, multinational exercise designed
to strengthen regional partnerships and improve interop-

the RIMPAC exercise began in 1971. P-3C Orion aircrews

Group of 104 U.S. Naval
Sea Cadets and adult vol-

NAS Jacksonville at various
commands for annual training
July 17-23 as part of a program
to help youths gain technical
knowledge through hands-on
The cadets, ages 11 to 17
years old, spent the week work-
ing at the Flight Line Caf6,

All were required to complete

"The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet
Corps is one of the best-kept
secrets in the country and we
want to change this situation. We
have a lot to offer in the way of
showing kids that gangs, drugs
and alcohol are not good choices
and what they choose now will
affect their lives in their near
future," said U.S. Naval Sea
Cadet Corps Regional Director
6-2 Lt. Cmdr. June Tillet.
"We aim to instill a sense of

leading a healthy lifestyle by eat-
ing nutritious foods and less fast
foods and the benefits of daily
exercise," she continued. "There
are about 10,000 active Sea
Cadets in more than 300 units."
Seven Sea Cadets spent the
week at the Flight Line Caf6,
where they manned a variety of
workstations, including the bak-
ery, service line, vegetable and
food preparation areas. While
learning how a galley works, the
cadets helped prepare many dif-
ferent dishes from scratch.
"I'm really having a lot of fun
working at the galley. I worked
here last year also and enjoyed
it so much, I wanted to do this
again," said Sea Cadet Arianna
"It's awesome working here. I
think it's amazing to see what
the Sailors do to make the meals
here. I've learned how to use
knives, make huge cakes and
spread icing. They are teaching
me a lot," added Sea Cadet Kaylee
"These young folks are tomor-

get here on the deckplate, our
attention to them is investing in
the future of the United States
Navy. It's important that we
teach them as much as possible,"

specialist does in the Navy," said Sea
Cadet Rebecca Corley.
NCMB-14 Ensign Todd Kisshauer
said the cadets come from as far away
as Indiana for the two-week train-
ing. "They experience what Seabees
do day-in and day-out - from welding,
hanging drywall and installing insu-
lation to learning weapons safety in
the firearms simulator."
"We even create a Seabee mission in
Africa, where we set up a perimeter
and encampment at the base anten-
na farm. In this training scenario,
Sea Cadets from the HSMWL Rescue
Swimmer School portrayed 'aggres-
sors' and attempted to infiltrate the
perimeter," said Kisshauer.
NSCC Lt. Diane Smith of Nashville,
Tenn., said, "We brought three cadets
and three officers to NCMB-14. This
hands-on training is invaluable and
our cadets will be talking about it for
a long time."
"Coordination of nine different
training evolutions is quite tricky,
especially in regards to logistics
and moving all of the 104 personnel
around the base. But the commands
here have been extremely receptive
and we are grateful for their assis-
tance," added Tillett.
The NSCC program is open to
youths who have a desire to learn
about the Navy, Marines and
Merchant Marine. Members drill at
their local units weekly or monthly
during the year and are given the
opportunity to participate in advanced
training during school breaks at vari-
ous locations around the country.
Some of the areas of training include
medical, firefighting, aviation, culi-
nary arts, photojournalism, SEAL
team, sailing and basic seamanship.

taken officer and professional development
courses and served time in rank to earn

marked with the Sea Cadet insignia.
An avid believer in giving back, Tillett Lt. Cmdr.
first became involved with the Sea Cadets June Tillett
16 years ago when her son, Adam joined the program at age
12. She said he learned a great deal as a cadet, including self-
discipline, the Navy core values and good citizenship.
"Our main goal isn't to get them to enlist," she said. "It is
more to make them responsible citizens." more
Tillett's son chose not to pursue a military career, but his
exposure to naval aviation as a Sea Cadet encouraged him to
earn the FAA Airframe and Powerplant license to become a
sheet metal mechanic at FRCSE.
Nevertheless, about 65 percent of the youths who serve as
Sea Cadets go on to pursue a military career. This year the
U.S. Navy has earmarked $2 million for summer training.
Cadets are billeted on the base and eat in the galley. Typically,
they each pay $120 per week to participate in the summer pro-
The program also promotes fitness and a healthy lifestyle.
It educates them on the dangers of drug and alcohol use and
abuse and warns against street gang participation.
According to Tillett, each cadet may earn liberty if they
do a good job. They can swim at the indoor pool or go to the
bowling alley. Since many don't live near an ocean, they are
occasionally driven to the beach for physical training, a big hit
with the cadets.
This summer, Tillett is focusing on military bearing, the
skill to conduct oneself in a professional manner at all times.
She said it is a big component of Navy life, and the cadets need
to work on cleaning up their unsuitable language, often heard
in the home. "They are watching too much television and
movies with bad language," she said. "It just flows out of their
When cadets report for summer training, Tillett discusses
the rules and emphasizes that those who do not comply may be
sent home early. She admits she has had very little trouble over
the years, but on the rare occasion, she has had to call a parent
to pick up their child.
"They are really great kids," said Tillett, "and there is great
hope for our future. They are going to be good citizens and
hold positions of authority later on in life."
FRCSE Power Plants (400) Division Officer Lt. Donovan
Maxwell hosted nine cadets who are interested in learning
more about jet engines, engine components and propellers.
"This is a great opportunity for them to learn about the vari-
ous job and what the Navy has to offer," said Maxwell.
Sea Cadet Seaman Ray Watkins, 15, of Cape Canaveral,
Fla., was enjoying his first day working on a T56 engine

E-2D Advanced Hawkeye delivered to fleet
Navy Public Affairs
Support Element, East
T he first E-2D
the Navy's new air-
borne early warning and
control aircraft, was deliv-
ered to the Fleet July 29 at
Naval Station Norfolk.
Adm. Gary Roughead,
chief of naval operations,
accepted the Hawkeye on
behalf of the Navy during
a ceremony at Chambers
"It's going to be a game
changer with information
dominance for the U.S.
Navy," Roughead said.
The E2D Advanced
Hawkeye, while not signif-
icantly changing the mis-
sion of early warning and
control, will enable the air-
craft to perform its mission
with many improvements.
The new aircraft can scan a
larger area, detect smaller
objects, and process infor-
The aircrew will be able
to accomplish these tasks
through digital "glass cock-
pits" and tactical stations.
"While the new Hawkeye
looks familiar, on the inside
it is a totally new aircraft,"
said Gary Ervin, president
of Northrop Grumman's
Aerospace Systems Sector.
"The systems represent a
multi-generational leap in
The Advanced Hawkeye
is assigned to the
"Greyhawks" of Airborne
Early Warning Squadron
(VAW) 120. They are the
Navy's Fleet Replacement
Squadron that trains pilots
and naval flight officers to
operate the new systems
before assignment to an
operational fleet squadron.
"Now it is up to Cmdr.
Watkins and the 700 profes-
sionals of VAW 120 to push
this aircraft to the limit
and unlock its great poten-
tial," said Ervin.
"The work they do will set
up for a seamless transition
to the fleet."
Like its predecessors, the
E-2D is designed to serve
for many decades. Space
has been left for advance-
ment as new technologies
"For longer than I have
been in the Navy, the Fleet
has relied on the Hawkeye,"
said Vice Adm. Allen
Myers, commander Naval
Air Forces Pacific.
"It's the first to launch
and the last to recover on
the flight deck, and has
earned the reputation as
the ears and eyes of the

cased their talents by singing, dancing and performing
skits as the audience cheered them on.
"The whole theme of the week has been based around
talent giving the kids the opportunity to discover what
they are talents they might have. Talent is not just singing
and dancing so we try to give them different ideas of how
they can use their talents. And by putting on this show
each year, it gives them the chance to show off their skills.
Every child is unique in their own way," said YAC Director
According to Long, the kids and their counselors start
planning for the show several weeks before the event and
spend quite a bit of time practicing their moves.

Become an organ donor
By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS Jax Deputy PAO
According to the United Network for
Organ Sharing (UNOS), as of July
16, there were 108,174 candidates
on a waiting list for an organ transplant.
And, this number continues to increase
every single day.
Unfortunately, thousands of these can-
didates will not survive long enough to
receive a transplant. But you can help by
simply donating blood and becoming reg-
istered with your state's organ and tissue
Next, designate your decision on your
driver's license and fill out a donor card.
There are no age limitations on who can
donate organs, criteria is based on physical
condition. Newborns, as well as senior citi-
zens, can be organ donors. The heart, kid-
neys, pancreas, lungs, liver and intestines
- as well as various tissue, bone marrow
and stem cells can be donated.
Minorities overall have a particularly
high need for organ transplants because
some diseases of the kidney, heart, lung,
pancreas and liver are found more fre-
quently in racial and ethnic minority pop-
ulations than in the general population,
according to the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services Administration.
African Americans, Asians and Pacific
Islanders and Hispanics are three times
more likely than whites to suffer from end-
stage renal (kidney) disease, often as the
result of high blood pressure and other
conditions that can damage the kidneys.
Some of these conditions can only be treat-
ed through organ transplant.
In 1984, the National Organ Transplant
Act established the Organ Procurement
and Transplant Network (OPTN), a nation-
al organ sharing system to guarantee fair-
ness in the allocation of organs for trans-
Since then, UNOS has operated the
OPTN, under a contract with the Division
of Transplantation in the Department of
Health and Human Services. UNOS main-
tains a central computer network contain-
ing the names of all patients waiting for
kidney, heart, liver, lung, intestine, pan-
creas and multiple-organ transplants.
Waiting list rules vary by organ and
are based on the patient's medical urgen-
cy, blood, tissue and size match with the
donor, time on the waiting list and proximi-
ty to the donor. The patient's income, celeb-
rity status, and race or ethnic background
do not determine allocation of organs.
One way to donate the gift of life is to
participate in one of two special blood
drives being held at NAS Jacksonville
Aug. 16 from 8 a.m. to noon and Aug.
23 from noon to 5 p.m. next to the Child
Development Center, Building 705. To
donate, you must be at least 17 years old,
weigh 110 pounds and be in good health.
All prospective donors are asked to make
an appointment by logging on to https//
The user name is LWilliams4550 and the
password is "password." For more informa-
tion, call Maureen Mosely at 353-0040.

EPA launches National Water Conservation Campaign
From the Environmental
The U.S. Environ-
WaterSense program today
is kicking off its national
"We're for Water" campaign
to encourage Americans to
make simple choices that
The program, in col-
laboration with its part-
ner, American Water, will
spread the word about
saving water by travel-
ing cross-country, stopping
at national landmarks and
educating consumers about
WaterSense labeled prod-
ucts. WaterSense products
use about 20 percent less
water than standard models.
"Whether by replacing
an old, inefficient plumbing
fixture with a WaterSense
labeled product or adopting
more water-efficient behav-
iors, together we can help
save water for future gen-
erations," said Peter Silva,
for EPA's Office of Water.
"WaterSense offers consum-
ers simple tips that can help
the environment and keep
money in their pockets."
Consumers can start sav-
ing water today with three
simple steps: check, twist
. Check toilets for silent
leaks by putting a few drops
of food coloring in the tank;
if the color shows up in the
bowl indicating a leak, fix-
ing it may be as simple as
replacing the toilet's flapper.
. Twist on a WaterSense
labeled bathroom faucet aer-
ator to use 30 percent less
water without a noticeable
difference in flow.
* Replace a showerhead
with a WaterSense labeled
model that uses less water
and energy, but still has all
the power of a water-hogging
WaterSense, a partnership
program sponsored by EPA,
seeks to protect the future
of our nation's water supply
by offering people a simple
way to use less water with
water-efficient products, new
homes and services. In 2009,
EPA's WaterSense program
helped consumers save more
than 36 billion gallons of
water and $267 million on
their water and sewer bills.

Severe weather: Stay alert, stay alive
By April Phillips
Naval Safety Center Public Affairs
Across the fleet, Sailors
and Marines cross their
fingers and hope for
sunny skies during their sum-
mer vacation leave periods.
Unfortunately, it's a fact that
summer corresponds with the
start of hurricane season.
Hurricane Katrina still lingers
in our national psyche and tor-
nados make big news whenever
a destructive funnel cloud touch-
es down. However, the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) reports
that thunderstorms, which many
people view as routine during the
summer, are nature's most violent
Thunderstorms are always
accompanied by dangerous light-
ning, and often the atmospheric
conditions created during a thun-
derstorm can actually trigger a
tornado. Each summer, thunder-
storms, which can form quickly
to kill and
es and equip-
to NOAA, on
nados kill 70
er 1,500 each
year. Lightning is responsible for
an average of 80 deaths and 300
injuries per year. Flash flooding
is the number one cause of deaths
associated with thunderstorms,
killing nearly 150 people per year.
NOAA says the best way to
prepare for the unexpected is to
develop a family disaster plan.
Pick two places to meet. One
should be outside your home for
an emergency such as a fire, and
another place should be away
from your neighborhood, in case
you can't return home, such as
in the wake of a tornado that
causes heavy damage. Make sure
you choose and out-of-state rela-
tive or friend as a "family check-in
contact" and make sure everyone
knows to call this person if you
a change of
first aid kit
6-. including pre-
with extra batteries, and an extra
set of car keys.
The recipe for a thunderstorm is
simple: moisture, added to unsta-
ble air, mixed with a little lift,
caused by cold or warm fronts, sea
breezes, mountains, or the sun's
heat. These ingredients are most
likely to mix during the summer.
The best way to avoid becom-
ing a statistic is to be prepared.
Watch the weather reports, check
the sky, and plan your events so
weather doesn't become a factor.
When caught in a storm, find
shelter, and avoid isolated trees or
other tall objects. If you're stuck
in an open field, get as low as pos-
sible, preferably in a ditch, and
put your hands on your knees
with you head between them.
Don't lie flat on the ground. Also
avoid taking showers or talking
on the telephone when storms are
A little common sense can go
a long way toward making sure
a thunderstorm is more of a nui-
sance than a disaster.

Trapped by choice
By Chaplain (Lt.) Justin Top
Years ago, when I was in
college, I took a large
group of friends on a late
night outing to explore an old
On previous trips to the mine
I had discovered two vertical
shafts, one that went down about
30 feet and another that dropped
60 feet. We were unable to deter-
mine what was at the bottom of
these tunnels in previous visits,
but I had determined to "get to
the bottom" of the mystery this
To help me do that, I had
brought along my rappelling
equipment. After taking the
group on a tour of the rest of the
mine I took them to the vertical
shafts to wait while I rappelled
down to the bottom to see if there
was more to explore down there.
Directly above the larger shaft,
a wooden beam was lodged in the
walls across the hole. I anchored
my rope to the beam, put on my
harness, and began my descent.
About halfway down I discov-
ered a tunnel on the side wall. I
pushed myself over to the ledge to
have a look around.
There I discovered that the
tunnel led to the smaller vertical
shaft we had jumped over previ-
ously. I went back to the deep
shaft and shined my light down to
the bottom to see what was there.
The bottom was littered with rock
and debris that had fallen from
above, but I could see nothing of
interest down there. I could also
see now that it was a dead end.
Looking back on these events I
am amazed at how my choices in
that mine gradually left me with-
out any choices. I made decisions
impulsively and did not really
think of what consequences might
come because of it.
As I finish telling the story,
pay attention to how each choice I
made limited my freedom by lim-
iting what subsequent choices I
After looking around at some
of the old stuff in the shaft, I was

planned on having my rock climb-
ing buddy change the rope around
at the top so I could safely climb
However, I hadn't told him that,
so he left with most of the group

I love it. I've been huge
advocate for the DoD to
get on board with utilizing
the potential and power of
social media especially in
the area of Family Support
Programs and Command
I was thrilled when the
DoD released a social
media directive earlier this
year. The potential to pro-
vide reliable information to
military families through
social media is limited only
nothing to see. Only two people
remained - my girlfriend and
one other person, neither of whom
knew a thing about ropes, knots
So I decided to just free climb
the rope. "You will be just fine,
you're a rock climber and are
in great shape," I reasoned to
myself, "Besides, your girlfriend
will be mighty impressed with
you if you do it."
I knew that it was dangerous,
and I probably would have told
anybody else who tried it that
they were stupid.
But for some reason I thought
I was different. So I pushed the
danger out of my mind and began
climbing the rope. I even decided
to climb without using my feet to
make it extra impressive.
I got about half way up the
rope, and then as I was reach-
ing upward I accidentally knocked
the hardhat off my head and it
tumbled to the very bottom. I had
to rappel all the way to the bot-
tom again. Now I had twice as
far to climb. I brushed the warn-
ing out of my mind and figured
he good, tf
by your creativity.
Social media has the
potential to provide con-
nection and communica-
tion, thus enhancing fam-
ily bonds as never before.
Photos of family, the chil-
dren, family events, report
cards and more can give
military families a greater
sense of connection across
the miles. I am all for tools
that strengthen families!
However there are legiti-
mate concerns and pitfalls.
I am concerned about a
trend in social media that
is damaging to relation-
ships, marriages, and even
our commands' missions -

There are two issues here.
First, in years past, gossip
was considered a bad thing.
It was wrong to speak evil
of others or spread unflat-
tering information. Today,
we have TMZ glorifying
gossip and bad behavior.
But I digress.
My inbox is full with
accounts of "lose lips" sink-
ing marriages, friendships
and more. Gossip hap-
pens, yes. But gossip is still
wrong. Social media open
the door to post things that
we would not say to each
other face to face. It offers
"cover" and is deceptively
inviting to post far more
than should be posted. Let
me give you a few exam-

feels good to post your frus-
trations and anger. It is
exciting to post your life on
Facebook and Twitter.
But the drama, pain and
that if I got tired I could wrap
the rope around my leg and rest.
When I was about eight feet from
the top I started to get tired, but
I was so close to the top that I
decided to just push through to
the end. After another five feet -
to my horror - I realized that my
strength was totally spent.
My head was even with their
feet, but they could do nothing for
me. I didn't have enough strength
to let go of the rope with my feet
long enough to wrap them around
it. I tried to pin myself against
the wall, but it was too muddy.
After a few seconds my strength
wavered - and I fell.
As I was falling, I no longer
had any choice in what happened
to me. I could no longer act for
myself, but could only be acted
upon (by gravity in this case).
Falling was not the result of one
mistake, but a series of bad choic-
es made long before I ever fell.

The Military Spouse Career Advance-
ment Accounts (MyCAA) program
will resume Oct. 25, but with some
significant changes, a defense official
said. Changes include a reduction in the
amount of financial aid, a change in the
population eligible to receive that aid -
from all military spouses to spouses of
junior service members - and more robust
These changes bring the MyCAA pro-
gram back to its original intent of equip-
ping military spouses of junior service
members with portable careers, such as
in real estate or health care, said Clifford
Stanley, undersecretary of defense for per-
sonnel and readiness.
The program was launched in November
2007 for spouses of junior service members,
and was expanded to all pay grades and
programs of study in March 2009.
"We're trying to give spouses an opportu-
nity to be immediately impactful as soon as
they get into a community," Stanley said.
"We want to make sure they have opportu-
nities to work when they get to a new duty
Officials temporarily halted the program
Feb. 16, pending a top-to-bottom review,
after an enrollment surge overwhelmed the
system and caused the program to near-
ly reach its budget threshold. In March,
with the review still under way, officials
resumed the program for the more than
136,000 spouses who already had estab-
lished an account. The review took time,
but officials wanted to ensure they could
sustain the program for the long-term,
"We want to help people be employed, but
at the same time we have to be cost con-
scious," he said. "We don't want to start it
and stop it. This is something we want to
continue because it's important to take care
of our families and our spouses."
The previous program offered a lifetime
benefit of $6,000 for education purpos-
es. Under the new parameters, spouses
of junior service members can apply for
a maximum financial benefit of $4,000
for up to three years from the start date
of the first class, with a $2,000 annual
cap, Stanley explained. Spouses pursuing
licenses or certifications requiring an up-
front fee of greater than $2,000 may apply
for a waiver of the annual cap up to the
maximum benefit of $4,000, he added.
Financial aid will be limited to spous-
es of active duty service members in pay
grades E-1 to E-5, W1 to W-2 and 0-1 to
0-2, Stanley said. Eligible spouses can
use the money to fund associate's degrees,
licenses and certification programs, but
not higher degrees. The program wasn't
intended to support bachelor's and master's
degrees, Stanley said.
"The counseling piece is probably the
most important, and pivotal, part of this
program," he said in a roundtable discus-
sion with reporters July 20. Spouses cur-
rently enrolled in the program can continue
their participation through Oct. 21, when
MyCAA will ramp down and prepare for
the Oct. 25 launch. As of Oct. 25, those
spouses who fall within the eligible pay
grades can continue their program partici-
pation. Spouses who no longer are eligible
for financial aid still can participate by
accessing career and education counseling
services, Stanley said.
To ensure the vitality of the program,
Military OneSource counselors will
encourage spouses to explore other fund-
ing resources, including federal benefits.
