Intelligence, operations

team up for bin Laden kill


By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service

The plan to attack the com-
pound of 9/11 mastermind
Osama bin Laden was the
result of relentless intelligence
work and operational profes-
sionalism, White House offi-
cials, speaking on background,
said May 2.
The operation was the culmi-
nation of years of careful and
highly advanced intelligence
work, officials said, as officers
from the CIA, the National
Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
and the National Security
Agency worked as a team to


analyze and pinpoint the
Pakistani compound where bin
Laden was killed.
Once the intelligence point-
ed precisely to the compound
in Abbottabad - a town 35
miles north of Pakistan's capi-
tal of Islamabad - the work on
the mission began between the
intelligence and military com-
munities.
"In the end, it was the match-
less skill and courage of these
Americans that secured this
triumph for our country and
the world," one official said.
A small team conducted the
helicopter raid on the com-
pound. An official called it a


"Justice has
been done,"

Barack Obama
said from the
White House -

of Osama
bin Laden in a

complex operation, noting
that the compound was a vir-
tual fortress - built in 2006
with high walls, razor wire and
other defense features. Its sub-
urban location and proximity
to Islamabad complicated the
operation, the official said.


in Pakistan on May 1.

"The men who executed this
mission accepted this risk,
practiced to minimize those
risks, and understood the
importance of the target to the
national security of the United
States," he said.
"This operation was a sur-


gical raid by a small team
designed to minimize collat-
eral damage and to pose as
little risk as possible to non-
combatants in the compound
or to Pakistani civilians in the
neighborhood."
U.S. helicopters delivered the
team to the compound, and the
team was on the ground for less
than 40 minutes, an official
said. They did not encounter
any local authorities. In addi-
tion to bin Laden, three adult
males were killed in the raid.
"There were several women
and children at the com-
pound," the official said.
"One woman was killed
when she was used as a shield
by a male combatant. Two
other women were injured."

the seven


Fallen Seabees


are honored

They come together so they will not
forget. In 2004, seven Seabees of Naval
Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB)
14 were killed in Al Anbar Province,
Iraq, in support of Operation Iraqi
Freedom.
The battalion honored those fallen
Seabees April 30 at its annual memo-
rial service held at the unit's headquar-
ters on board NAS Jacksonville.
"Today we pause to remember and
acknowledge the enormous price paid
by our brothers and their families so all
Americans can live their lives in free-
dom," said retired EOC(SCW) Michael

event.
"We remember Seabees who lived by
our core values of honor, courage and
commitment - so that others can enjoy
the freedom for which we fight."
Paying the ultimate sacrifice in 2004
were SW2(SW) Jason Dwelley, E03
Christopher Dickerson, BU2 Michael
Anderson, E02 Trace Dossett, CM2
Scott McHugh, BU2 Robert Jenkins and
SW3 Ronald Ginther.
NMCB-14 Commanding Officer
Capt. Sean McDonell told the audi-
ence, "Thank you for joining us today
as we remember our fallen Seabees and
honor the ultimate sacrifice that they
and their families have made defend-
ing our freedom. This event also serves
as a profound reminder that we live in
a dangerous world - and that America's
military is facing that danger on front
lines around the globe."

Services (a unified organization con-
sisting of the fire departments at NAS
Jax and NS Mayport) was recently
named "2010 Navy Fire Department
of the Year (Large Category)" by
Commander, Navy Region Southeast.
The organization was also recog-
nized as the region's "2010 Navy Fire
Prevention Program of the Year."
The annual awards recognize the
Navy's most outstanding fire depart-
ments for achieving the highest degree
of excellence in mission support and
fire protection management.
"As members of the Navy's first
responder community, our firefight-
ers and paramedics at NAS Jax and
NS Mayport are prepared to quickly
respond to any emergency," said Rear
Adm. Tim Alexander, Commander,
Navy Region Southeast. "They are
highly-trained and motivated, with a
tremendous desire to serve and protect
our communities. I couldn't be more
proud of their achievements."
The award nomination criteria
include incident command, emergen-
cy medical services (EMS) response,


aircraft rescue and firefighting, fire
suppression, HazMat (Hazardous
Materials) response, CBRNE
(Chemical, Biological, Radioactive,
Nuclear, Explosive) event response, as
well as technical rescue services to the
naval air station and its tenant com-
mands.
Fire Chief Don Martin said, "We've
won this award in back-to-back years
- and that truly validates the dedica-
tion of our people to doing outstand-
ing work throughout the department.
Like most leading organizations, this
achievement was a team effort. It is the
third department-of-the-year award
that we've received under my watch
and I couldn't be more proud."
Martin added, "We're one of 13
excellent fire departments in the
southeast region to compete for this
award. The next level of competition is
between Navy regional winners. The
winner from there goes on to represent
the Navy at the Department of Defense
level."

Mission

To honor 100 years of mission-ready men and women, and recognize unique aviation-related achievements through event-driven
celebrations.


The Grumman F6F Hellcat joined the Pacific Fleet in 1943. To make carrier take-offs
and landings safer, the Hellcat had the largest wing area of any single-engine fighter
of WW II. Powered by the Pratt & Whitney Double Wasp R-2800, this rugged aircraft
could carry up to 2,000 pounds of bombs. It remained the Navy's frontline fighter-
bomber through the end of the war.

Dustin sees homecomingfor the first time'


By Sarah Smiley
Special Contributor


There are two sides to everything, and each "side"
has its own mix of emotions, reasoning, feeling and
perception. Last night, Dustin saw a military home-
coming from the perspective of a wife.
To the average bystander, the experience (that of
a wife who has been at home, and that of a husband
who has been deployed, reuniting after months apart)
should be nearly the same. But the quizzical smile on
Dustin's face, in the background of one of the pictures
from that night, proves that after being a military
service member for the past 15 years, he was seeing a
homecoming for the first time.
First, he witnessed the many anxious phone calls
from my friend (the wife) when she was unsure if her
husband was coming home "this day" or "that day."
Will it be today? she wondered. Will it be morning or
night? Should I put the kids to bed? Keep them awake?
What if his homecoming is postponed until tomorrow?
How will I ever sleep tonight?
Dustin heard about my friend's trips to the hair-
dresser, her appointments to get a manicure, pedicure,
facial and bronzing. Indeed, about four months prior,
he saw her exciting post on Facebook: I bought my
homecoming dress today!
"Already?" Dustin asked. (This from the man who
only chooses what to wear based on what's reasonably
clean.)
My friend talked about her stomach being in knots.
She mentioned feeling restless, unable to sleep, and so
incredibly anxious about the upcoming homecoming


From The Homefront

that she was "going out of my mind."
I imagine Dustin went through many of the same
things (minus the pedicure, manicure, facial and
bronzing) before his homecomings.
But a key difference is that the returning service
member is busy traveling. He has processing and
debriefs to do. He has clothes to pack and work to com-
plete. He is like a person closing up shop before head-
ing home for dinner. He is, in a word, busy. But more
importantly, every minute, he is making his way home.
The wife is perhaps equally busy (I called my friend
about an hour before the homecoming; she was bath-
ing the kids, getting dressed, and trying to make din-
ner) but she is going nowhere. She is waiting in a hold-
ing pattern. Thus the anxiety and restlessness.
There is an enormous build up of excitement, and it
lasts for as long as the service member is en route but
not yet home.
Or worse, from the time he is en route but without an
official homecoming date and time. It could be tomor-
row; it could be a week. How does one carry on with
something as mundane as laundry under such circum-
stances?
When we got to the airport that night - the night my
friend had been waiting for since the moment her hus-
band landed in Norfolk for "processing" - Dustin held
back with obvious distance between himself and the
waiting family. It was as if he didn't know his place.
I knew mine. I am a military wife. I have been in my


friend's shoes. I knew she wanted me to take pictures,
wave flags and basically meet her level of excitement
(mission impossible, really).
Dustin was stuck in limbo. I was reminded of what
one of my female-service-member friends once said: I
don't belong in the kitchen with the women, but I don't
really belong in the den with the guys either.
My friend's cell phone rang. The plane had landed.
He would be coming through the door any minute.
My friend began to tear up. The kids were jumping up
and down and chanting "Daddy, Daddy!" There was
a moment when I thought my friend might pass out
because it looked like she wasn't breathing. Her eyes
were fixed on the door.
And then he walked through. She jumped in her
heels, wrung her hands and smiled with tears in her
eyes.
This was the part that Dustin knows. He has been
there for this part. The father gathered up his children
and hugged them. Then he reached for his wife and
pulled her into the huddle. They kissed while children
hung from their dad's shoulders.
No one in the "audience" said a word.
When I got home and uploaded the pictures, I came
across one of my friend just moments before her hus-
band came through the door. She is clutching her
hands together in front of her, and she is smiling so big
that veins are visible in her neck. Her skin is glowing.
Dustin is in the background. On his face is the most
genuine, excited smile I have ever seen from him in a
photograph.
It was as if he was watching a homecoming for the
first time. And in many ways, he truly was.


Hey, MoneyChic!


Hey, MoneyChic!
I currently live paycheck-to-
paycheck -but the good news
is that I'm due for a raise next
month. How can I avoid spend-
ing my raise and start saving?
I planned to open a savings
account the last time I got a raise
but somehow I ended up spend-
ing it every month. I really want
to make a change this time. I am
hoping to have $6,000 saved by
this time next year. Please help.
MoneyChic says: This is a good
query and it is nice to see that you
have a goal in mind. Too often
when a raise comes our way we
tend to place the money in some-
one else's hand. Usually we end
up buying unnecessary things.
However, it is always good to
have money set aside for a rainy
day.
Laura Cohn, associate editor
at Kiplinger Finance Magazine
recommends four ways to trim
your spending. First, track all of
your spending for at least one


month, but preferably, three to six
months. By tracking your spend-
ing for multiple months you will
be able to calculate expenses that
do not occur every month. This
essentially allows you to be more
prepared for out of the ordinary
expenses such as car and home
repairs.
Tracking your budget should
be as painless as possible. One
option is to create your own Excel
spreadsheet or use a website like
mint.com - a free website lets you
track of all of your accounts on
one page. Setting up an account
is easy - you just need your login
information and passwords to
your bank accounts. Keep all
receipts, as well as review cred-
it card & banking statements to
double check for accuracy.
The next step is to look for leaks
in your variable spending. Are
you spending too much money on
eating out? Food tends to be the
one category that people under-
estimate their spending. Are you


shocked to find out your true
spending on food per month? If
so, this is the time to make the
change. Start packing your lunch
for work or have your friends over
for a potluck dinner instead of
going out. Another place to check
your variable spending is your
cell phone, internet, cable, and
landline. Is there a better cheaper
plan available for you? Do your
research and switch to a more
affordable plan.
If you want to save $6,000 by
this time next year, you must put
away $500 per month. It is also
important to set a savings goal -
whether it's a house, a car, retire-
ment or college. But I do recom-
mend that you pay yourself first
and then cover your bills.
Finally, when you set your goal,
it is important to be flexible. Ask
yourself if this a reasonable goal
based on your findings. If not,
adjust your goal to something
that is reachable.
That's my two cents!

'Tridents' visit aviation training commands


By Lt. j.g. Andrew Camden
VP 26 Public Affairs


VP-26 aircrew recently visited
Sherman Field at NAS Pensacola, and
NAS Whiting Field, Fla., with a P-3C
Orion aircraft.
The purpose of the visit was to pro-
vide student naval aviators, naval flight
officers and aircrew at Training Wings
Five and Six with an update on current
Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance
Force (MPRF) operations and plans for
the community's future.
VP-26 Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Jeff Draeger and Executive Officer
Cmdr. Noel Dahlke were joined by P-8
Fleet Integration Team Commanding
Officer Cmdr. Gordo Wilson in leading
the engagement with the next genera-
tion of Navy flyers.
The "Tridents" aircrew and aircraft
were graciously hosted by VT-10 where
future naval flight officers conduct ini-


tial and intermediate flight training.
After conducting a static display for
interested students and staff instruc-
tors, Lt. Matt Fannin and Lt. James
Reeves presented a current MPRF ops
brief to interested students and staff.
Wilson then gave an update on the
upcoming Fleet introduction of the P-8
Poseidon and Broad Area Maritime
Surveillance System (BAMS) UAV.
Highlights from the Tridents' last
deployment and operations during their
ongoing inter-deployment readiness
cycle clearly sparked interest among
the students. The impressive capabili-
ties that P-8 and BAMS are bringing to
the MPRF community created an even
greater buzz.
While student flight officers were
taking in the briefs, VP-26 aircrew
instructors, AWO2 Matthew Searfoss
and AWO2 Sean McFarlane, took the
opportunity to brief approximately 20


students from the Aircrew School based
at NAS Pensacola.
Following the day's events, VP-26
repositioned their Orion to NAS
Whiting Field for a similar engagement
with student pilots for more than 40 stu-
dent naval aviators while being hosted
by VT-3.
Also supporting the trip and student
engagements were Lt. Cmdr. Brian
Bradford, Lt. j.g. Andy Camden, Lt j.g.
Zach Sipes and AWF1 Alan Pottinger.
The VP-26 visit to these training com-
mands provided a valuable opportu-
nity for approximately 75 students and
staff instructors to learn the latest about
MPRF current operations and the com-
munity's exciting future.
These insights will help them make
informed career decisions that will sig-
nificantly impact their future in the
fleet.
The trip was also a rewarding oppor-


tunity for these Tridents to share their
experiences with the next generation
while visiting the places where their
naval aviation careers began.

Jacksonville Sailor named Navy Reserve Sailor of the Year

By Jim VorndranAl7.
COMNAVRESFORCOM Public Affairs


NAS Jacksonville Sailor AWFI(NAC/
AW) James Henson was named the Navy
Reserve Sailor of the Year during a recog-
nition ceremony in mid-April. Henson,
currently attached to VR-58, will be pro-
moted to chief petty officer in May.
As a loadmaster and Naval Air
Training and Operating Procedures
Standardization instructor, Henson gives
credit for this achievement to the staff of
his command and the members of the
first class petty officers' mess.
"We raise each other's game," Henson
said of his fellow first class petty officers.
"We are a competitive team-in a good
way. By being competitive we challenge
each other to do our best."
"Petty Officer Henson has displayed a
sense of humility throughout the process
to final selection as Reserve SOY," said
CMDCM(SW/AW) Fred Prindle, VR-58's
senior enlisted leader.
"His deckplate leadership has and con-
tinues to positively impact the Sailors at
VR-58. Selection as RSOY and meritori-
ous advancement to chief petty officer
is well deserved. His key to success is
his technical expertise coupled with his
infectious charismatic leadership style
which inspires those around him to suc-
ceed. Sailors want to work for and with
him to accomplish the mission. Selected
Reservists, like Henson, bring a special
blend of leadership and skill sets to the
deckplates which enable us to meet the
mission."

ists spent four days in Washington to
appear before the RSOY selection board,
tour the Pentagon, and get a history lesson
at memorials and monuments in the city.
Before touring the Pentagon, the five
RSOY finalists met with Chief of Navy
Reserve, Vice Adm. Dirk Debbink.
Debbink's office overlooks the Pentagon
9/11 memorial. He explained to the final-
ists the view of the Pentagon Memorial
from his office reminds him daily why we
(Sailors) do our jobs.
"This week has been filled with so
many firsts for me," Henson said.
"The 184 people who lost their lives that


day 11 years ago will never be forgotten
because of this memorial."
Another first for Henson was meeting
Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy
(MCPON)(SS/SW) Rick West. "It is just
amazing to walk down a hallway and the
next thing you know you are meeting with
MCPON," Henson said.
The five finalists agreed meeting
MCPON was a highlight of the week.
While the five RSOY finalists will never
forget the experiences they had during
this week, they were unanimous in giving
credit to their shipmates for being consid-
ered for RSOY.

and present," Henson said.
"If it wasn't for having great mentors,
and people who helped me set career
goals, I never would have had this amaz-

Top Sailors honored at SOQ luncheon

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS ,ax Deputy PAO I,


NAS Jacksonville's leaders recognized the achieve-
ments of their Sailors April 26 by hosting a Sailor of
the Quarter (SOQ) Luncheon at the NAS Jax Officers'
Club. The luncheon recognized 94 SOQs for the first
quarter of 2011 from each of NAS Jax's tenant com-
mands.
"We have Sailors assigned to patrol squadrons that
deploy all over the world. Our Sailors attached the
helicopter squadrons, deploy on board the small-boy
ships. This event allows us to come together to rec-
ognize the accomplishments of our Sailors who are
out there defending the freedoms of our nation. It's a
way for us to say 'thank-you' for what you do every day
and let you know that you are appreciated," said NAS
Jacksonville Command Master Chief (CMDCM)(AW/
SW) Brad Shepherd.
As the NAS Jacksonville Color Guard presented
the colors, Navy Band Southeast A Cappella Quartet
performed the national anthem. NAS Jacksonville
Chaplain (Lt.) Hylanie Chan-Williams delivered the
invocation.
Shepherd then introduced the guest speaker, AWF1
James Henson of VR-58 who was recently selected at
the 2010 Reserve Forces Sailor of the Year.
"It truly is an honor to be here today. There are a lot
of factors in our careers that make us successful but
I'd like to touch on two of them - opportunities and
responsibilities," said Henson.
"I stand here today because the opportunities were
laid out for me by my mentors and I challenge you
to take advantage of those opportunities as well. As
SOQs you will be competing to become your com-
mand's Sailor of the Year (SOY). Once you reach that
accomplishment, you can compete even higher and
possibly become a SOY for the fleet."
"The second aspect is responsibilities. Whether you
like it or not, you as SOQs and Junior SOQs, you are
now the beacon - the example in your commands that
those junior Sailors will look up to guidance," contin-
ued Henson.
"I challenge each of you to reach out to them
because without them, you wouldn't be where you are
today."
"I'm standing here today because I have great ship-
mates at VR-58 who have helped me out along the way.
And, great first class petty officers who have pushed
me and outstanding senior leadership in the chief's
mess," he said.
Following lunch, each SOQ was called to receive
his or her award envelope containing a letter of rec-
ognition from NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer
Capt. Jeffrey Maclay, a congratulatory letter from Sen.
Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and a gift bag from the USO.
SOQs also received a $50 U.S. Savings Bond from
VyStar Credit Union, and a discount card from the
Navy Exchange. GEICO and USAA sponsored the buf-
fet luncheon.
"This is really exciting to be here today and being
recognized. It's nice to see that we are really appreci-
ated by our commands," said QM2(SW/AW) Derek
Scott, SOQ for Commander, Navy Region Southeast.
"It's really nice that the base commanding officer
and command master chief and our individual com-
mands take the time to recognize all the Sailors with
this special luncheon. I'm thankful to be recognized,"
added IT1(IDW/SW) Michelle Pittard, SOQ for Naval
Computer and Telecommunications Station Jax.

on his hazardous material suit before the drill.

Firefighters train as hazardous materials responders


From Staff


Eight firefighters assigned
to First Coast Navy Fire and
Emergency Services and one
with the Florida Air National
Guard 125th Fighter Wing con-
ducted specialized training
April 18-22 to learn how to deal
safely and effectively with situ-
ations involving chemical, bio-
logical or radiological materi-
als.
Training Chief Tony Hopper
said, "First Coast Navy Fire
and Emergency Services is a
leader in hazardous material
response. This training pro-
gram is an opportunity for our
firefighters to gain knowledge
and enhance their ability to
excel in this specialized field.
There are a few us within the
department who are certified

sonnel so they can attain tech-
nician level."
"Our goal is to prepare haz-
ardous materials response
teams to respect our 'cul-


ture of safety' when incidents
involving hazardous materials
occur," he added.
Hopper explained that haz-
ardous material (HazMat)


responders must learn to iden-
tify various containers, includ-
ing liquid and vapor tanks, as
well as drums and tank trucks
containing hazardous liquids.
They report their findings to
the incident commander on
the scene and then determine
which mitigation kit will be
used to gain control of the situ-
ation.
"Part of process after the
classroom sessions is conduct-
ing a hands-on practical eval-
uation. It's a learning process
and this is all new to them but
it's going really well. And, when
it's time to do the real thing out
in the field, they will have the
basic knowledge of how to han-
dle a situation," said Hopper.
"We try to make this as realistic
as possible. It's a good train-
ing experience for the whole
department."
The students were called to


respond to a leaking chlorine
gas cylinder and were required
to set up a decontamination
area. "We had one student
act as an incident command-
er which means they run the
operation. We also had sup-
port services from medical and
other members of our depart-
ment involved. We also have an
operations officer who moni-
tors the firefighters," continued
Hopper.
As the smoking cylinder
spewed gas across the field,
the first reconnaissance unit
was sent in to relay information
back to the operations officer,
who in turn, relayed his report
to the incident commander.
When all the conditions were
known, the incident com-
mander sent in the primary
team to stop the gas leak, with

After the gas was secured, each team
member was required to go through the
decontamination process.
Two fellow hazardous materials
instructors, Fire Chief Jamie Sherer and
Station Chief John Dales, teamed up
with Hopper to teach the 40-hour class
that certifies firefighters as HazMat
responders.
The exams are based on professional
qualifications from the National Fire
Protection Association.
The student certification process is
accredited by the International Fire


Service Accreditation Congress - a
peer driven, self-governing system that
accredits both fire service certification
programs and higher education fire-
related degree programs.
"I think the training went smooth-
ly. It was exactly what we went over in
the classroom and I learned a lot from
this experience," said Firefighter Alex
Guerra.
"It allowed us to use different skill
sets, get in there and get the job done. It
was extremely beneficial because they
used real-life scenarios that gave us a
first hand look at what we might see out
in the field," said Specialist Scott Smith
of the 125th Fighter Wing.

Mabus cites need for globally deployed Navy


By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service


The operations of the past year highlight the need
for the United States to maintain responsive and flex-
ible global forces, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus said
April 27 at a Defense Writers Group breakfast in
Washington, D.C.
Mabus had just returned from Japan, where he
met with 7,000 Sailors and Marines who worked in
Operation Tomadachi to provide relief for earthquake
and tsunami victims.
"A couple of things struck me: One of them was the
amazing skill of these men and women in uniform,
and second was the flexibility that they showed," he
said.
Mabus visited USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) during
his trip. The aircraft carrier was heading to provide
combat aviation over Afghanistan when the earth-
quake hit. It immediately turned around and began
providing disaster relief and humanitarian assistance,
he noted.
"They used the same targeting formulas as those for
combat to make sure that humanitarian assistance got
to the right place, at the right time," he said.
Mabus said it is important that the U.S. takes a fun-
damental look at the roles and missions of the military
in a fiscally constrained environment. The Navy has
been trying to "buy things smarter" and has been
looking at everything from platforms to personnel in
an effort to save money yet still provide the capabili-
ties the nation needs.
Operations over the past months have highlighted
the flexibility the Navy brings to the U.S. govern-
ment's toolbox, Mabus told the group. Some 18 ships
and thousands of personnel on the ground helped in
Japan.
Navy submarines, big-deck amphibious ships and
frigates participated in the initial strikes in Libya. At
the same time, he said, aircraft carriers provided sup-

Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus speaks to Sailors
and Marines during an all-hands call April 20 aboard
the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan
(CVN 76) in Sasebo, Japan.
port to forces in Afghanistan and in the Persian Gulf,
and Navy ships also are part of the antipiracy patrols
in the Gulf and off the coast of Somalia.
"The need for a globally deployed, flexible fleet [is
apparent]," he said. "The same platforms that we used
in Libya can be used for a number of other things."
What makes the fleet flexible, the secretary said,
is that it comes from the sea. "We don't have to take
up an inch of anybody's ground to project power or
deliver aid," he said. "We can sail on the sea lanes that
we keep open."
And this flexibility will only increase, he said. The
Navy is testing the use unmanned aircraft off the
decks of carriers, for example.
The Navy and the country need to look at budget
constraints with an eye toward results, Mabus said.


"America has global responsibilities, and I think we
should meet those, so I don't think we should look at
this like a math exercise."
Noting that the service has to be quicker in procure-
ments, Mabus said the recently cancelled expedition-
ary fighting vehicle is the poster child for what's wrong
with procurement. "It's the only program I've ever
seen where you had to have a life extension program
on the test vehicles," he said. The program started in
1988, and it wasn't set to reach full operational capa-
bility until 2026.
Going forward, he said, officials need to keep three
questions in mind: "For anything, what's the mission?
What do we need to accomplish the mission? How
cheaply can you get there?"
The Navy has seen personnel changes, Mabus said,
and those will continue. As part of the efficiency
effort, the service has moved sailors from shore billets
to ships, he said, and desk personnel to pierside. The
littoral combat ships need fewer sailors to man them,
he added, and the new aircraft carriers will require
1,500 fewer sailors to operate.
"I think by rebalancing the force, changing the way
Sailors and Marines are used, you can have a larger
number of ships with the size of the force we have
today," he said.
The Navy will hold a personnel board over the sum-
mer to look at mid-career personnel, the secretary told
the group, seeking balance in the service's specialties,
or ratings.
"We're removing them from ratings that are over-

FRCSE safety fair raises awareness at work, home


FRCSE Public Affairs i


Fleet Readiness Center
Southeast (FRCSE) held a safety
fair April 20 to raise employee
awareness of the hazards com-
monly encountered in an indus-
trial setting - as well as to pro-
vide information, techniques
and equipment for improving
personal safety.
More than 700 employees
attended the second annual
safety fair that provided hands-
on demonstrations on the lat-
est equipment and materials for
improving workplace safety at
the industrial facility.
FRCSE Occupational Safety
and Health Director Robert
Aceves said industry vendors,
FRCSE personnel and mili-
tary representatives staffed 11
booths to provide safety infor-
mation that applies to work,
home and recreational activi-
ties.
"We want to get people out of
their workspaces," said Aceves,
"to talk with the subject mat-
ter experts. This year we have a
variety of safety topics to raise
awareness of job-related illness-
es and injuries, such as hearing
conservation, as well as those
that apply at home, such as fire

ness."
At the FRCSE Industrial
Hygiene booth, Don Gilbert
provided information on hear-
ing conservation. Hearing loss
from high noise levels is a seri-
ous occupational health prob-
lem that is preventable with the
proper use of hearing protection.
Sharing the booth was
Radiation Safety Officer Lori
Powell who provided informa-
tion on radiation safety and nat-
urally occurring radiation levels
found in the everyday environ-
ment.

Head Lorrinda Seiberling said
the fair gives the artisans an
opportunity to "see what's out
there" and learn how to prepare
for the unexpected.
"We invited the American Red
Cross this year to provide infor-
mation on disaster prepared-
ness," she said. "Hurricane sea-
son is rapidly approaching; we
should all have a disaster plan
and supplies in case of an emer-
gency."
At the Snap-on and Atlas
Copco booths, vendors dis-
played the latest ergonomic
power tools, hand tools and tool-


boxes. Artisans were encour-
aged to test the industrial equip-
ment.

nurse from Naval Hospital

blood pressure screenings for
fairgoers. High blood pressure
or hypertension is often called
the "silent killer," because it usu-
ally displays no symptoms.

NMCB-14: Remembering seven Seabees who lost their lives


From Page 1


He added, "The men and women of
NMCB-14 who stand here today are pre-
paring for a 2012 deployment that will
take them, once again, to serve on the
front line. As we remember these fallen
heroes, it drives us to plan and train with
the same tenacity, courage and selfless-
ness that is instilled by those who came
before us.
"I know that nothing said today can
diminish the sorrow that families, friends
and fellow Seabees feel for our fallen
seven - so I will simply say 'thank you' on
behalf of a grateful battalion, Navy and
nation for their service and sacrifice," said
McDonell.
Guest speaker was Capt. Donald
Hedrick, commodore, Third Naval
Construction Regiment (3NCR), Atlanta,
who recently returned from Afghanistan,
where he completed his third deployment
in six years.
"I first want to say 'thank you' to our
families for their sacrifice and support
on the home front. Only with that sup-
port, can we maintain our Seabee 'can

Hedrick. "Wearing the uniform of our
Navy Construction Force is a tremen-
dous obligation. It represents that part
of our nation's history and heritage that
calls for sacrifice from every generation.
As I watch today's young Seabees, I more
deeply appreciate the sacrifices we make,"


Peter Herrick, a severely disabled veteran

dear friends we lost in Iraq."
he said.
"For those who gave the ultimate sacri-
fice in 2004, it's important that we honor
and never forget. Just as we will not forget
how we got to where we are today, espe-
cially with so many troops in harm's way."
Hedrick continued, "Sadly, this is not

was lost at the compound due to mechanical failure.
The crew destroyed it on the ground, and the assault
force and crew members boarded the remaining air-
craft to leave, an official said.
"There's also no doubt that the death of Osama bin
Laden marks the single greatest victory in the U.S.-led
campaign to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al-Qaida,"
the official said.
"It is a major and essential step in bringing about al-
Qaida's eventual destruction."
Though the organization's terrorists still are danger-
ous and al-Qaida may not fragment immediately, an
official said, "the loss of bin Laden puts the group on a
path of decline that will be difficult to reverse."
The United States did not share any intelligence on
the raid with any other country, the official said.
"We believed it was essential to the security of the
operation and our personnel," he said.
"In fact, only a very small group of people inside our
own government knew of this operation in advance."
Shortly after the raid, he added, U.S. officials contact-
ed senior Pakistani leaders and told them about the
raid and its results.
"Since 9/11, the United States has made it clear to


Pakistan that we would pursue bin Laden wherever he
might be," the official said.
"Pakistan has long understood that we are at war
with al-Qaida. The United States had a legal and moral
obligation to act on the information it had."

Veterans respond
"After nearly 10 years of searching for Osama
bin Laden, I am pleased to see that our special
forces troops were able to locate and perma-
nently remove the leader of the al-Qaida forces
that so brutally attacked our country on 9/11.
Our brave military warriors have paid a very
high price, many with their lives, to protect our
country, our freedom, and our way of life. We
can never forget our military forces, especially
those from our U.S. Navy who have volunteered
as Individual Augmentees to take the fight to
the enemy in the global war on terrorism. Every
American should feel a sense of patriotic pride
today for the work of the greatest military on
earth."
~ Bill Dudley ~
Navy League of the United States President
Florida Region


"When I heard the breaking news late last
night, I was overwhelmed. I personally did not
think we were still looking for him. I thought
it was just a hoax because it's been 10 years.
I'm really happy about this though because my
son is currently serving in Afghanistan and bin
Laden had a big influence even though he was
behind the scenes. I'm so proud of our Navy
SEALs! Go Navy! I can only imagine what my
son is doing over there right now and his reac-
tion. For me and my husband, it's personal
because we were both in the military during
9/11 and never saw it come to a close before we
retired."
~ Retired Lt. Cmdr. Herlena Washington ~

"This victory is a great testament to the pro-
fessionalism of our military forces, especially all
those who have served since 9/11. It shows that
if you attack the United States, there are conse-
quences. All of us who are veterans are proud
of our troops and grateful for their sacrifice and
patriotism in the interest of national security."

NAS Jacksonville Commissary baggers Brittany Holt and Bob Sarson pack grocer-
ies into reusable bags provided by the customer. Sarson commented that more
and more commissary shoppers are reducing their use of plastic bags.


Commissary asks patrons to

reduce paper, plastic bag usage


By Courtney Rogers
DeCA Customer Relations Specialist


Being earth-friendly is an ongoing
priority for the Defense Commissary
Agency (DeCA). That's why this past
Earth Day - and every day - DeCA is
asking customers to do their part in
helping commissaries be environmen-
tally responsible and save on operating
costs by reducing the use of paper and
plastic bags.
"Operating in an environmentally
responsible manner is an important
part of delivering a premier commis-
sary benefit to our military customers,"
DeCA Director and CEO Joseph Jeu
said.
"We are committed to minimizing
our operational impact on the environ-
ment to help preserve it for both our
current and future customers."
Commissary store directors have
engaged head baggers to reduce their
use of paper and plastic bags by not
double-bagging unless a customer
requests it.
They were also asked to give each bag
a "boost" by placing just one more item
in each bag.
Not only will these practices reduce
each commissary's impact on the envi-
ronment, they could also save the agen-


cy more than $2 million per year in sup-
ply costs if commissaries reduce bag
use by just one bag per transaction.
DeCA is also seeking to reduce
dependency on paper and plastic bags
by encouraging customers to purchase
reusable bags.
The reusable bag program has been
very popular with commissary custom-
ers, who have purchased more than 4.1
million of the bags since fiscal 2008.
To encourage reusable bags, DeCA
recently added a reusable bag button
to its self-checkout stations that allow
customers to reset the scales without
cashier intervention.
This allows customers with reus-
able bags to check themselves out more
quickly and easily. Customers can also
reuse paper and plastic bags on their
own groceries, provided that the bags
are clean and will safely hold their gro-
ceries.
"We are working every day to operate
in an environmentally and fiscally con-
scious manner," Jeu said. "But the way
to achieve the most substantial results
for our future is to partner with our cus-
tomers to create a culture shift in daily
shopping habits. Over time, a small
change - just one less paper or plastic
bag used per transaction - can lead to
big results."

Family Matters Blog: Show seeks


military families for home makeover


American Forces Press Service


I'm excited to share new information about an
amazing opportunity for deserving military families.
The producers of ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home
Edition" are seeking people involved in the military
whose home deserves an extreme makeover.
The producers are looking for people with "amaz-
ing strength of character and who put their own needs
aside to help others," a press release said.
"Whether it's a soldier, a mom, a teacher or a fire-
man, we think deserving families are families who
inspire those around them."
Additionally, the show's producers are seeking fam-
ilies whose houses need major alterations or repair
- "homes that present serious problems for the family
and affect the family's quality of life."
To be eligible, families must own their single family


home and be able to demonstrate how a makeover will
make a difference in their lives.
Interested military families or people who wish
to nominate a military family should e-mail a short
description of the family's story to emheusa@gmail.
com.
The e-mail should include the names and ages
of household members, a description of the fami-
ly's challenges, an explanation of why the family is
deserving of a makeover or is a positive role model in
the community, photos of the family and their home,
and contact numbers.
The deadline for nominations is May 30, but people
should send submissions early, the release said. Only
up to 25 families are selected each season.

NAS Jax aircrew inspire fourth-graders

By Kaylee LaRocque
NAS lax Deputy PAD ii'


Four women naval aviators from
VP-30 visited Julington Elementary
School April 28 as part of NAS
Jacksonville's Centennial of Naval
Aviation activities. The team consist-
ing of P-3 Orion Pilot/Instructor Lt.
Susie Mendenhall, Naval Flight Officer
(NFO) Lt. Janine Curcio, AWO1(NAC/
AW) Maggie Joyce and PR2(AW) Dinia
Cadette spent nearly an hour talking
about their backgrounds, education and
career paths to seven classes of fourth
graders at the school.
"I'm from Pittsburgh, Pa. and I went
to the Naval Academy and majored in
chemistry. After graduation, I went
to flight school to become an NFO,"
Curcio told the students. "I'm in charge
of our missions and the weapons sys-
tems. I've been to many different places
and love being in the Navy."
Mendenhall also discussed how
she chose her career. "My dad was in
the Navy, so we moved around some.
When I was about eight, my grandfa-
ther showed me a movie called 'Patriot
Games' and it had jet pilots in it. I decid-
ed right then that was what I wanted to
do. So I worked hard in school to be the
best that I could so I could make it hap-
pen," she said.
"I went to college on a naval schol-
arship and earned my engineering
degree. When I graduated, the Navy
was too full with pilots at the time, so
they sent me to get a master's degree
in aerospace engineering. Then I went
to flight school. I've been an instructor
at VP-30, then went to Maine to VP-10
and flew all over the world," exclaimed
Mendenhall.
Cadette said, "My job at VP-30 is to
provide equipment that's safe for the
aircrews when they are flying. What I
work on is what they need to survive
in case something ever happens to the
aircraft. My first command was with
a helicopter squadron at NAS Jax and
I've been many places. It's a great expe-
rience and there are many different
jobs. I've been in Jacksonville my whole
career, but get to deploy to many great
places," said Cadette.

enjoys her naval career in front of a group of fourth graders at Julington Creek
Elementary School April 28. Cadette, along with (from left) Lt. Janine Curcio, Lt.
Susie Mendenhall and AWO1(NAC/AW) Maggie Joyce visited the school as part of
the Centennial of Naval Aviation activities sponsored by NAS Jacksonville.


"I joined the Navy when I was 17. Many
of my family members have served
in the Navy, but I'm the first woman
in my family to fly," said Joyce. "I was
with VP-10 for five years in Brunswick,
Maine and have deployed all over the
world. I came to VP-30 in 2008 as an
instructor to teach people how to oper-
ate radar. My job is to identify what's of
the ground or in the water and tell the
troops where they need to go to get the
bad guys."
The students watched a short video
on naval aviation that featured pilots
flying several different naval aircraft.
The floor was then opened up for ques-
tions.
Many students wanted to know about
life in the Navy, the missions and what
it is like flying the aircraft.
"I absolutely love being in the Navy.
The people are what make it so great.
I've been all over the world and have
had so many wonderful experiences,"
said Curcio.
"I love my job and wouldn't trade it for
the world. I love being able to fly. Our
aircrews really care about one another
and we take so much pride in our jobs,"
added Mendenhall.
The event was coordinated by NAS
Jax School Liaison Officer Dawn Mills.
"We are here today to celebrate the


Centennial of Naval Aviation and the
women of naval aviation. It's really a
wonderful event because it gives the
students, especially the young girls,
some ideas of what's available to them
later on in life," said Mills.
"We will be visiting several more ele-
mentary, middle and high schools in
the near future," added Mills.
Julington Creek Elementary Principal
Michael Story was thrilled to host the
Sailors and praised them for taking the
time to visit with the students. "It would
be hard for me to over state the impor-
tance of adult role models for our stu-

craft to the students.
dents. Spending time with female naval
aviators and talking about their experi-
ences is something our girls and boys
will long remember."
"This is really cool and maybe some
of my friends will be in the military and
become pilots," said 10-year-old Brooke
Lahmann.
"I'm kind of thinking about chang-
ing what I want to do when I grow up to
becoming a pilot now because it real-
ly sounds interesting. I'm also think-
ing of the medical field -but I could do
that in the Navy too," added Daniella
Kapuschansky, 10.
The event was a huge success for both
the students and the Sailors. "I wouldn't
be doing what I am doing today if it
wasn't for the influences I had when I
was younger. It's great to pay that for-
ward and inspire younger generations
to follow in our footsteps," said Curcio.

Summer health tips


By Capt. Joseph McQuade
NH Jax Public Health Director


As we start the glorious summer
months it may be a good time to sharp-
en our focus on the big picture of keep-
ing ourselves healthy. Whenever I see
a patient in clinic I always look at their
blood pressure.
Hypertension, or high blood pres-
sure, causes one in six
deaths among American
adults - a rate that rose
25 percent over the past
decade - and now rep-
resents the largest single
risk factor for cardiovas-
cular mortality.
Our president
Franklin Roosevelt died
at the early age of 62
from uncontrolled high
blood pressure. That so
many Americans are
at grave risk from not
controlling their blood Capt.ose
pressure should cause
everyone to pause for a moment and
consider how well their blood pressure
is controlled.
Q: Why do providers always check
and recheck the blood pressure when
we come in to see them?
A: High blood pressure has become a
"neglected" disease, not given the atten-
tion it deserves despite the simplicity of
diagnosis, treatment, and prevention
on a patient-by-patient basis. Simply
stated we use too much salt. That is the
opinion of a group of scientists work-
ing with the Institute of Medicine.
A priority should be population-level
reductions in salt intake, which will
call for involvement by government and
institutions at the state and local level
as well as in Washington, they said.
"Every jurisdiction should immedi-
ately begin to consider developing a
portfolio of strategies aimed at reducing
dietary sodium intake in their popula-
tion," they wrote.
Their report also called for other
changes in the health environment as


keys to population-based success:
Increased potassium intake (only 2
percent of adults get the recommended
4.7 g per day). Watermelon, cantaloupe
and bananas are all good sources of
potassium.
Greater physician adherence to
hypertension screening and treatment
guidelines. Ask your doctor if your
blood pressure is well controlled. Get it
down less than 130/80!
Leveraging commu-
nity health worker pro-
grams to include hyper-
tension prevention and
control.
People need to under-
stand the benefits of
walking every night and
getting rid of their salt
shakers.
Reducing the cost of
antihypertensive medi-
cations to increase
adherence to treatment
McQuade by working with the pri-
vate sector.
Greater funding for population-based
efforts and interventions. The need for
everyone to know about salt reduction,
weight control and exercise is an impor-
tant step to take.
One study projected that cutting
back on daily salt intake by three grams
(roughly 30 percent), would prevent
tens of thousands of strokes and heart
attacks each year, while even a 1 gram
reduction would be more cost-effective
than treatment with the least expensive
blood pressure medication.
Nearly 90 percent of Americans get
more than the recommended 2.4 g of
sodium per day (the equivalent of six
grams of salt), the report noted.
Part of the problem is that "the large
majority of sodium in the U.S. food sup-
ply is added in processing and man-
ufacturing of foods, and a large and
increasing amount is used in the fast
food industry."
So watch out for the extra salt. It may
be the biggest villain driving your blood
pressure up!

Commissary, exchange, MWR partner


for Family Fun Fitness Festival


By Sallie Cauthers
DeCA marketing and mass communications specialist


The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) recently announced one of the
largest partnership events in military resale and outreach history - the second
annual Family Fun Fitness Festival to be held at NAS Jacksonville May 12-15.
This event is designed to help installations offer the military community
worldwide a smorgasbord of: commissary case lot sales; exchange sidewalk
sales; morale, welfare and recreation (MWR) fitness activities; demos and music;
nutritious food samples; prize giveaways and discount coupon offers.
The festival will also help increase the military community's awareness of the
benefits of a healthy lifestyle through fitness and nutrition.
First held in May 2010 during Commissary Awareness Month, the Family Fun
Fitness Festival will expand its schedule this year beginning in mid-April and
running through mid-June to accommodate more activities.
"When we partner with the exchange and MWR activities, our customers get
the best of military resale," said DeCA Director and CEO Joseph Jeu. "Our goal is
always to make the installation a first-destination shopping option for our ser-
vice members and their families."
Last year, the festival offered children's sports events and reached out to a
significant portion of the military community to make them aware of available
fitness and wellness programs.
Events in the festival area included 5K walk/runs, mini-marathons, aerobic
and fitness classes, as well as health screenings provided by local dietitians.

How STORY TIME PROVED THAT MAKING
HOUSE CALLS AREN'T FABLES AFTER ALL.

Bill always had a fondness for reading bedtime stories to his daughter.
As a Haven Hospice patient, he wanted to be home with his family.
So when it became too difficult to visit his doctor, our doctors made
house calls to Bill -just not during story time - so Bill could stay
right where he wanted to be, home.

Not what you'd expect from hospice care? Haven is different. At Haven,
we believe that Hospice is about living, not dying. We're Haven Hospice.
The stories of life live here. To learn more, visit havenstories.com.

We're here to help, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
Haven Hospice has been honored with the Circle Of Life Award
for its high level of hospice care -and innovative programs.

Jacksonville MWR sets sail with first inclusive pontoon boat


By Stephanie Edwards
Fleet and Family Readiness
Programs, Commander, Navy
Region Southeast

What started as an
idea and a passion for
one Morale, Welfare and
Recreation (MWR) man-
ager is now a reality -
with a modified pontoon
boat designed to expand
"inclusive recreation"
opportunities at NAS
Jacksonville's Mulberry
Cove Marina.
The goal of inclusive
recreation programs is to
include people with dis-
abilities in recreation
offerings to improve their
health and wellness.
Approximately one year
ago, NAS Jax MWR Marina
and Auto Skills Center
Manager Phil Collins
encountered a customer
in a wheelchair who expe-
rienced challenges using
the standard pontoon
boat available for rent at
the marina. Shortly after
that encounter, Collins
and fellow MWR profes-
sionals attended an edu-
cational session on inclu-
sive recreation offered
by Penn State University
at NSB Kings Bay, Ga. At
that time, Collins imme-
diately set out to identify


the tasks and modifica-
tions that would need to
be made to improve the
customer experience for
Wounded Warriors, dis-
abled veterans and others
with physical disabilities.
To bring the idea to life,
he also pursued funding
through the Commander,
Navy Region Southeast
MWR grant program.
To ease the transition on
and off the boat, a retract-
able loading ramp was
installed, so the customer
can raise and lower the
ramp from either side of
the rail. Structural chang-
es included the removal
of some boat furniture,
installation of various tie-
downs and widening of
the forward door. Scrap
aircraft aluminum was
utilized from the on-base
recycling center. Most
work was performed by
Collins, with the excep-
tion of some welding per-
formed by ASE Certified
Mechanic J.T. Grail at the
MWR Auto Skills Center.
A key factor in testing the
functionality of the modi-
fications was the use of a
wheelchair, which Collins
borrowed from Naval
Hospital Jacksonville.
"Using the wheelchair


was key as it allowed me
to actually get in and
maneuver around the
boat and use the dimen-
sions to identify where I
needed to make changes,"
stated Collins. "Once the
work was complete, I went
through the entire evolu-
tion of renting a boat, from
marina store counter to
launch ramp, to ensure we
had all the bugs worked
out of the system. "
Concluding this phase
of modifications, Collins

needed a unique name
for such a special boat.
The most popular recom-
mendation was to name
the boat the "Lt. Dan"
after the character in
the movie Forrest Gump


- who when faced with a
disability, rose above it to
realize he can do what-
ever he wants in life.
Although the "Lt. Dan"
is now available for rent,
Collins does have addi-


tional plans for one more
modification. He is cur-
rently designing the "go
for a swim" system later
this year to assist boaters
with swimming from the
boat's deck.

VP-26 hosts Vietnam Era 'Trident'


By Lt. j.g. Charles Billhardt
VP 26 PAO


The history of naval aviation is filled with the honor-
able sacrifices of many men and women; sometimes
they sacrifice time and effort and at other times it is
more. Recently, A. Scott Wilson, a VP-26 pilot from the
Vietnam era, met with the VP-26 "Tridents" to reflect
on his tour with the squadron, deploying in 1967-68,
and the loss of two combat aircrews at sea. He is also
the proud father of Cmdr. Gordo Wilson, who served
his first tour in VP-26.
Wilson reported to VP-26 in Brunswick, Maine in
1965 and was assigned to Combat Aircrew 12 (CAC-
12). At the time, the squadron was transitioning from
the P-2 Neptune to the new P-3B Orion, which is what
he primarily flew. During the first part of his tour he
flew numerous missions in the North Atlantic search-
ing for Soviet submarines and scouting for surface
vessels. Two years later, he and his crew shifted focus
as the squadron deployed to the Western Pacific in
support of the U.S. effort in Vietnam.
CAC-12 was deployed with most of the squadron to
Sangley Point in the Philippines, where they routinely
patrolled ahead of U.S. maritime forces in the region.
This mission was their focus until they were sent to
U-Tapao airfield in Thailand. From U-Tapao, CAC-12
joined four other VP-26 P-3B crews during the first
half of 1968 maintaining a continuous 24-hour patrol
along the Southern Coasts of Cambodia and Vietnam.
It was during this time that VP-26 tragically lost two
crews. Early on Feb. 6, 1968, CAC-12 was scheduled to
relieve CAC-8 from their patrol off the Southern coast
of Cambodia. However, the crew learned prior to its
planned mission that communications with CAC-8
had been lost. CAC-12 expedited its launch and
began searching along the coastline of Vietnam and
Cambodia, continuing even after they were relieved
by a dedicated U.S. Air Force search and rescue asset.
CAC-12 eventually found debris in the water near Con
Son Island, and it was determined that it was from
CAC-8's P-3B; there were no survivors.
The crews mourned the loss of their fellow Tridents,
but wartime requirements made it necessary for them
to continue the demanding round-the-clock opera-
tional posture with the four remaining P3-B crews.
On April 1, 1968, CAC-12 was flying a patrol mission
along the coasts of Vietnam and Cambodia. When
they finished their mission, they were relieved by

Smith retires after 20 years


CAC-1. Not long after recovering at U-Tapao, the crew
learned that CAC-1 had been fired upon by an enemy
surface unit near the same area where CAC-8's debris
was found. Thinking it could make a nearby divert
field, CAC-1 attempted to land there instead of ditch-
ing at sea. As the damaged P-3B reached the field, a
fire on the starboard wing persisted. The wing soon
departed between the number three and four engines
before the crew could land, sending the plane spiral-
ing out of control into the sea. The remaining VP-26
crews completed the deployment before returning
home.
At the conclusion of his remarks, Wilson received
a standing ovation from the proud Tridents who had
gathered to learn more about their history. It was
clear how this old "Twenty-Sixer" was moved by and
took pride in the memory of these heroic shipmates
who had made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of
their country. Wilson noted that the VP-26 crews who
fought in Vietnam with him "were all just kids at the


S" .-

time," and went on to say that despite their age they
fulfilled the most "honorable duty a person can have."
In a year when the Tridents join all of naval aviation in
honoring its first 100 years, the presentation brought
into clear focus the predecessors they seek to honor.


By Lt. j.g. Tim Sullivan
HSL-42 PAO

Family members and
friends joined the "Proud
Warriors" of HSL-42 in
celebrating the retire-
ment of AMI Iran Smith
last month. The ceremo-
ny was officiated by HSL-
42 Commanding Officer
Cmdr. Brad Collins. After
delivering emotional
remarks and thank-
ing those in attendance,
Smith went "ashore" for
the last time with his
wife, Lisa, and daughter,
Kayla.
Born in Seneca, S.C.,
Smith enlisted under the
delayed entry program
in July 1990 and entered
active duty service July
10, 1991. Before joining
the "Proud Warriors,"
Smith served in VAW-126,
VFA-106, VFA-82, Navy
Flight Demonstration
Team (Blue Angels), and
VFA-195.
During his tour with
HSL-42, he served as the
Tool Room/IMRL lead-
ing petty officer and
the Hazardous Material
Control and Management
supervisor.
During his 20-year
career, he has complet-
ed 11 deployments and
patrols to the Adriatic,
Red, and Mediterranean
Seas, Persian Gulf,
Indian, Western Pacific,
Southern Pacific, and
Northern Atlantic
Oceans.
