Special Duty

Pay Revised
NAVADMIN 156/09,
announces revisions in spe-
cial duty assignment pay
(SDAP), which take effect
July 26.
The revisions adjust SDAP
levels for active and Reserve
component full-time support
(FTS) Sailors, but the major-
ity of SDAP pay remains
unchanged from 2008.
Approximately 26,500
Sailors receive SDAP each
month and, of these, 6,300
are affected by this message.
Adjusted pay rates will be
reflected in the August pay
cycle, said Jeri Busch, the
head of the military pay and
compensation policy branch
for the chief of naval person-
Sailors whose SDAP will
be eliminated will receive
half of their previous SDAP
entitlement for 12 months, or
until the Sailor completes the
tour, whichever comes first.
The SDAP program is an
incentive for Sailors to serve
in designated billets that are
considered extremely difficult
or entail arduous duty.

The Navy announced June 19
that it will resume issuing per-
manent change of station (PCS)
orders following a three-month
delay due to a budget shortfall.
Last April, approximately
14,000 Sailors who were sup-
posed to transfer during the
summer had their transfer
dates delayed until fiscal year
2010. With the passing of a
supplemental request, the Navy
received approximately $89
million needed to fund PCS
moves through the end of this
fiscal year.
"Navy leadership made
PCS funding a priority in dis-
cussions with the Congress,
and earlier this week, Navy's
supplemental funding request
passed both houses of Congress.
Accordingly, Navy Personnel
Command has been authorized
to resume normal order writing,
enabling Sailors and their fami-
lies to move this summer," said
Chief of Naval Personnel Vice
Adm. Mark Ferguson.
Sailors who previously nego-
tiated orders, but then had their
transfer date put on hold, need
to renegotiate orders via Career
Management System Interactive
Detailing (CMSID) or their
detailers. Detailers recorded
what Sailors had previously
negotiated and will try to honor
those commitments, to the
maximum extent possible, but

ck On

Sailors need to
orders via
CMSID or their

Sailors still need to reapply.
During the PCS delay, the
Navy issued a limited number
of orders for Sailors completing
individual augmentees (IA) and
GWOT support assignments
(GSA) as well as new acces-
sions, so billets that were avail-
able before the PCS delay may
no longer be available.
"We want to do what is best
for the Sailor. Now that funds
are available, they may want
to move sooner in order to get
their children enrolled in school
or they may want to remain at
there current duty station until
November," said Master Chief
Quarter Master (SW/AW) Andy
Millar, senior enlisted advisor
for enlisted distribution. Millar
and his detailers are committed
to working with affected Sailors
to minimize the disruption for
Sailors and their families.
The current CMSID cycle
ended June 24, and the next
cycle begins July 9-22. Sailors
may log in and view available
assignments at http://www.npc.

SecNav Committed To Sailors, Families

By Darren Harrison
Naval District Washington Public

The secretary of the Navy
(SECNAV) said during his
assumption ceremony June
18 that his first commitment
as secretary will be to service
members and families.
"The law requires me to
ensure that the Department of
the Navy is properly manned,
trained and equipped, fully pre-
pared to meet the challenges of
the 21st century," said SECNAV
Raymond Mabus Jr. "I deep-
ly believe that this involves
not just what our Sailors and

Mabus made the remarks
following the administering of
the oath of office by Secretary
of Defense Robert Gates at
Admiral Leutze Park on the
Washington Navy Yard (WNY).
Earlier in the day, Vice President
Joe Biden administered the oath
at the White House.
Senior government and mili-
tary leaders and roughly 500

guests attended the ceremony
at the WNY. In addition, 27
ambassadors attended the event.
"We face great challenges,
and we have great friends and
allies," Mabus said. "To rep-
resentatives of the interna-
tional community here today,
welcome. I look forward to the
opportunity to strengthen ties
that are already strong, and I
know our collaboration will

Amanda Young
Single Sailor Coordinator
I'm proud to be an American this 4t
of July because I have the honor and
privilege of serving our Sailors who
serve us 365 days a year. Working for
Single Sailor has given me the oppor-
tunity to offer some fun and relax-
ation for the guys and girls that truly
deserve it. To me, being American is a
blessing thanks to our Armed Forces.

Chaplain's Corner

This morning you may have
read an uncensored newspaper
because we live in a country
that believes and practices free-
dom of the press. This past
Sunday you may have attend-
ed the church of your choice
because this country believes
and practices the free choice of
religion. I am now sitting in
my stateroom, while embarked
on the USS Kauffman (FFG59),
writing down my thoughts
because we believe in freedom
of expression. These are just
a few of the freedoms that we
enjoy in America.
Indeed, America is blessed in
many ways! Tremendous natu-
ral resources, great scenic beau-

ty, a basically robust economy
and educational opportunities
available to all who desire it,

are part of a seemingly endless
list of the fruits which freedom
and much sacrifice has brought.
The results of our unique 233-
years-old democratic experi-
ment seem almost supernatural.
No other people in the history
of mankind have achieved so
much in so little time. America
is unique among all nations in
all of recorded history! That is
a powerful reality.
In preparation to celebrate the
4th of July a number of com-
pelling realities appear clear to
me. As I see it, there are two
immediate temptations we face
as a people. The first, we can
take it all for granted, in which
case freedom appears to be

cheap. Freedom is not cheap!
Freedom always has and it
always will demand a price.
Our nation's various conflicts
speak forcefully of the price that
freedom has demanded over the
years. Our present day war on
terrorism testifies to this truth
and reminds us of the fragile
nature of our freedoms.
The second temptation is
that of praising and worship-
ing America without recogniz-
ing the ultimate source of our
unique freedoms. Ultimately, I
believe that the One for whom
the word "free" has a special
meaning has inspired our free-
dom. May I offer the following
acronym to remind us of where

our ultimate freedom rests?
F-aith (in God)
Faith in God brings freedom
from the bondage of the excess-
es of life. When we place our
faith in God we are set free.
God is the ultimate source of all
R-eliance (on God)
Reliance on God brings free-
dom from the chains of insecu-
rity. We can trust The Almighty
to supply our strength for God
is omnipotent.
E-nlightenment (from God)
Those who desire it can
receive God's light. This light
has been revealed to us and is
available for those who truly
seek it with all their hearts.

God is light!
E-ternal Life (with God)
Many people live in fear.
They dwell on the gloomy side
of life failing to recognize that
God holds the future. For them,
closing their eyes at the moment
of death represents a frightening
experience because they have
no vision of eternity. God will
give us freedom from fear of
the future, old age and ultimate-
ly, death.
Will you celebrate all of this
with me on 4 July? It's worth a

DoD Launches


By Navy Lt. Jennifer Cragg
Special to American Forces Press
The Defense Department has
unveiled "DoDLive," a central-
ly linked and unified platform
from which services can create
and maintain blogs.
"This blogging tool allows
all branches of the military an
opportunity to establish an offi-
cial blog about their command,
organization or unit," said Brian
Natwick, acting director of
the Defense Media Activity's
emerging media directorate
and general manager of the
Pentagon Channel.
This tool will enable Defense
Department organizations to
communicate on a more per-
sonal level, and can be used as
an extension to their Web sites.
"Having a central blog-
ging capability means that not
only can readers know they're
receiving reliable content, but it
enables conversations through
which the Department of
Defense can learn and grow,"
Natwick said.
Beta testing of the platform
began in January. Since its soft
launch, the Air Force and Army
added service-specific blogs,
and the Coast Guard is expected
to join in soon.
The department's official blog
is at http://DoDLive.mil and is
managed by the emerging media


directorate. Posts will cover a
spectrum of content, includ-
ing first-person updates from
Pentagon Channel reporters
and senior Defense Department
officials, "DoDLive Bloggers
Roundtable" content, internal
messages for military audiences
and updates on military news
The blog also will show-
case the department's other
social media products such as
the Wounded Warrior Diaries,
"DoDvClips," and the "Armed
with Science" and "Dot Mil
Docs" audio webcasts.
"We recognize our service-
members and organizations
are blogging already, and
we encourage that," said Les
Benito, director of the depart-
ment's public Web site. "What
'DoDLive' gives us is the top-
down support that will help the
department dispel any lingering
doubts about blogging and secu-
rity and whether organizations
should or shouldn't engage. We
hope the conversation expands
because of it."
The emerging media director-
ate was established to educate
Defense Department organiza-
tions about new media tools and
applications, encourage their
use throughout the department,
and to communicate department
messages and priorities more
effectively with the public.

you find on the Internet. Book
through the hotel (not the travel

them honor the lowest price by
calling the hotel directly. Also,
if the military/government/AAA
is not available online, call the
hotel directly. Tell them you
REALLY want to stay at their
hotel but they do not have your
special rate available. Ask them
if they would consider honor-
ing it. Make sure (nicely) they
understand that if they don't
honor your special rate, you
will have to find a hotel that
I a-"mrff ',-'

does. In my over 30 years of
traveling, I've never had a hotel
turn me down when I've called
the hotel directly. Remember,
the hotel's 800# is not going
to help you any more than the
Internet. You have to call the
hotel directly and ask for the
first desk or a manager.

Mabus will also formulate Navy
policy and programs.
During his speech to the
assembled guests, Sailors and
Marines Mabus spoke of the
Navy's "noble and storied leg-
acy," relating episodes in the
Navy's history from the capture
of the HMS Margaretta in 1775
to the "bravery and skill of the
Navy and Marine Corps in Iraq
and Afghanistan today."
"There is a long, unbreakable
line of heroism that stretches
from there, back to the begin-
ning," Mabus said. "The heroes
of our country are the heroes of
our own families. They come
from us; they defend us; wear-
ing the uniform from 1775 until
today, they are the shining fab-
ric of America."
Mabus identified shipbuild-
ing, aircraft production and
meeting the needs of the Navy
and Marines in an age of non-
expanding budgets as some of
the challenges he faces.
Mabus previously served in
the U.S. Navy from 1970-1972

Gettysburg Strengthen International Ties

From Commander, Combined Maritime Forces Publhc, ;
Combined Task Force (CTF) 151 and the guid-
ed-missile cruiser USS Gettysburg (CG 64), the
task force's flagship, recently completed a four-
day port visit to the Republic of Seychelles.
During the visit, Turkish Rear Adm. Caner
Bener, commander, CTF 151, and Capt. Richard
Brown, Gettysburg's commanding officer, made
a visit to the Seychelles People's Defense Forces'
(SPDF) Chief of Staff, Col. Clifford Roseline,
where they discussed the importance of counter-
piracy operations, information sharing and the
nation's strategic importance in helping prevent
and deter acts of piracy.
"Because of Seychelles' location, it has an
important role to play in combating piracy," said
Bener. "They recognize their strategic importance -
and the negative impacts piracy has not only on '-
their nation, but on nations worldwide. They've .
stepped up to the challenge and pirates are facing
tough logistical conditions as a result." .
CTF 151 Chief of Staff Turkish Capt. Faruk
Dogan also made office calls to the commander
of the Seychelles Coast Guard, Col. D. Gertrude
and the Indian warship INS Trishul, which was in
Victoria for a port visit to the island nation.
"Coordination and deconfliction is key to
our success as a counterpiracy task force," said
Dogan. "There's a great deal of water we need
to protect and patrol and being able to coordinate
our efforts allows us and the rest of the interna- .-
tional naval community to do that efficiently and '.

Maritime forces from four
countries began participation in
annual exercise FRUKUS this
year in the Bay of Biscay off the
coast of Brest, France June 19.
FRUKUS, which stands
for the participating countries
- France, Russia, the United
Kingdom and the United States
- is a naval exercise focusing
on strengthening maritime part-
nerships and improving interop-
erability and communication
between the nations.
Exercise FRUKUS is broken
into two segments, in port and
at sea.
In port, Sailors will partici-
pate in training for communica-

leadership will focus on top-
ics including maritime security,
fleet modernization and interna-
tional submarine rescue.
At sea, the exercise will
be driven by a scenario that

and maritime interdiction opera-
"During this exercise, Sailors
will get underway and become
familiar with the other navies'
operating procedures and prac-
tices," said Cmdr. Scott Smith,
commanding officer of USS
Klakring (FFG 42). "When
they meet in the future to con-
duct combined peacekeeping
or humanitarian operations, or
to counter trafficking in drugs,
weapons, or persons in this
region, they will be better able
to work together."
In the wake of last year's
Russia-Georgia crisis, the
United States cancelled

FRUKUS 2008 participation as
a part of its broader suspension
of military-to-military activities
with the Russian Federation.
FRUKUS was created in
2003 to aid in talks between
France, Russia, the United
Kingdom, and the United States.
Sponsorship rotates between the
four navies with the lead nation
traditionally providing a blend
of professional and cultural
activities. The principal aim is
to increase interoperability by
developing individual and col-
lective maritime proficiencies
of participating nations, as well
as promoting friendship, mutual
understanding and cooperation.

HSL-48 Det. 10 Returns

Home Mid-Deployment

By Lt. Benjamin Farwell
HSL-48 Public.
Helicopter Anti-Submarine
Squadron Light (HSL) 48
Detachment 10 returned to
Mayport June 14 after more
than two months on deployment
in Latin America.
The HSL-48 Det. 10 "Circus
Freaks" spent 72 days at
sea aboard the guided-mis-
sile frigate USS Hawes (FFG
53) on a counter-illicit traf-
ficking deployment, before
the ship returned to Mayport
for a Continuous Maintenance
Availability (CMAV) period.
Since embarking Hawes at the
beginning of April 2009, Det.
10 has flown 188 hours, 115 of
which were in support of opera-
tional tasking. They have also
logged 14.9 logistical hours fer-
rying both parts and passengers
to and from the ship.
Det. 10's maintenance per-
sonnel have played a major role
in accomplishing the deploy-
ment mission so far.
"I am very proud of our main-
tenance team," said Lt. Kevin
"Shak" Shikuma, Det. 10's
Maintenance Officer. "Their
hard work and quality of main-
tenance has consistently provid-
ed a fully mission capable air-
craft that is available for tasking
24 hours-a-day and has resulted
in a successful deployment thus
In support of its primary mis-
sion, counter-illicit trafficking,
Hawes also embarked U.S.

Coast Guard Law Enforcement
Detachment (LEDET) 407.
Led by Lt. j. g. Noel Johnson,
LEDET 407 has been working
jointly with the aircrew mem-
bers of Det. 10.
"I've never seen a more pro-
fessional, well-trained, and
motivated group of guys," said
Det. 10's Officer-in-Charge,
Lt. Cmdr. Flint Brady, in refer-
ence to LEDET 407. "Whether
on-duty or off, our two teams
complimented each other like
peanut butter and jelly."
During the first two weeks
of their deployment, Hawes
and Det. 10 provided maritime
security for the 5th Summit of
the Americas held in Trinidad &
Tobago, a conference which had
President Obama in attendance.
The "Circus Freaks" flew sever-
al missions in support of the 5th
Summit of the Americas, rang-
ing from Maritime Interdiction
Operations (MIO) to logistics
During the two-plus months
of deployment, Hawes made
two port visits; to Curacao,
Netherland Antilles, and the
second in Cartagena, Columbia.
These port visits provided a
brief respite from shipboard life
for all personnel aboard Hawes.
While in Curacao, members
of Det. 10 volunteered several
hours of their liberty to support
a Community Relations project
which helped provide basic ser-
vices to the island's inhabitants.
In a combined effort, members

from Hawes, LEDET 407, and
Det. 10 helped complete land-
scaping work for residents of the
Bergen di Rosario Retirement
Home. The volunteers also
delivered much needed medical
and hygiene supplies, provided
by Project Handclasp.
The remainder of the time in
Curacao was spent enjoying the
local beaches, shopping, and
SCUBA diving.
The first half of their six-
month deployment has elapsed,
consisting of a balanced mix of
operational tasking and relaxing
port calls. However, the brief
stop in Mayport is a welcome
change from deployment life
for the members of Det. 10.
While in Mayport, Det.
10 will be fully involved in
scheduled phase maintenance
on Venom 511. Being able to
see family and friends while in
Mayport will be a great bonus,
but the detachment will be
hard at work to keep Venom
511 flying safely. With half of
the deployment complete, the
"Circus Freaks" are looking for-
ward to a smooth second half.
Hawes, homeported in
Norfolk, Va., is under the oper-
ational control of U.S. Naval

From USS Doyle Public, ;,
Sailors of Task Group 40.0
were welcomed to a small
school in Callao, for a commu-
nity relations (COMREL) proj-
ect, June 12.
The happy faces of school
children surrounded the Sailors
as they unloaded tools andcans
of paint in preparation for the
project. A newly painted soc-
cer post, volleyball net and the
freshly painted building were
only a few of the projects that
marked Task Group 40.0's work
in Peru, during the Southern
Seas 2009 deployment. Task
Group 40.0 is comprised of
the guided-missile frigate USS
Doyle (FFG 39) with embarked
Destroyer Squadron (DESRON)
40 staff, USS Ford (FFG 54)
with embarked Helicopter Anti-
Submarine Squadron Light
(HSL) 43 Detachment 3, and
USS Kauffman (FFG 59).
"Each COMREL project is
a new experience for the host

country as well as for the crew,"
said Ensign Jeremy Linton, of
DESRON 40. "Just being able
to spend time with kids and see
their faces after we repainted
their soccer goals and built
them a volley ball net; it really
makes for a positive perspective
on both our Peruvian hosts and
for the Sailors. This is what our
mission here is really about."
Located between Callao
and Lima, the COMREL proj-
ect took place in two schools,
the Frenando Belaunde Terry
School and Santa Rosa 2093
School. With a box of tools and
painting supplies, Sailors imme-
diately went to work building
a large volleyball net and new
soccer post for the children.
The Peruvian Navy also pro-
vided support during the day.
They worked alongside Task
Group 40.0 sailors, providing
doctors and barbers to assist.
The students received on the
spot medical treatment such as

minor dental work and fresh

you see a different side of the
culture and with this particular
COMREL, you could see how
much a school really means

with the Peruvians enabled us
to strengthen our ties and you

Multinational Exercise

Ends In Baltic Sea

By MCI(SW) Gary Keen
USS Mount Whitney Public .~,
The 37th annual Baltic Operations (BALTOPS)
exercise 2009 concluded June 19 after 14 days of
multinational operations in the Baltic Sea.
The exercise encompassed 43 ships from 12
countries with more than 200 training events, all
focused on strengthening maritime security and
partnerships in the Baltic Sea. Naval Station
Mayport ships and helicopter detachments par-
ticipated in the exercise.
"Anytime you get nations from one area to
work together with nations from another in the
spirit of cooperation, you build relationships that
are available to help you in any real-world situa-
tion," said Rear Adm. John N. Christenson, com-
mander of Carrier Strike Group 12 and tactical
commander of BALTOPS 2009.
This year's BALTOPS started off for the first
time in Karlskrona, Sweden, with four days of
sporting events, social gatherings and receptions,
all designed to develop interpersonal relationships
with the participating Sailors.
The evidence of the tactical benefits of these
relationships was put to the test on the first day
underway when 12 ships communicated with
each other on various frequencies to complete a
tight echelon formation. This type of communica-
tion-reliant advanced maneuver has never been
attempted on the first day of previous BALTOPS.
Partnerships continued to grow throughout the
exercise, Christenson said, and the relationships

were a key factor in the execution of numerous
training operations ranging from compliant and
non-compliant boarding, submarine recognition,
medical evacuations, mass casualty drills and
mine countermeasure operations.
Christenson added that BALTOPS led to many
real-life successes outside of the exercise realm.
The sea floor was made safer for Sailors and
civilians when Swedish Mine Hunter HSwMS
Faaroesund (MUL-20) made a discovery that led
to the detonation of three mines and one British
torpedo, all from World War II.
"This was an excellent opportunity for training
together," said Swedish Navy Lt. Cmdr. Jorgen
Bergman, a planning advisor aboard the amphibi-
ous command and control ship USS Mount
Whitney (LCC/JCC 20). "This is the first time
Sweden has taken such an intensive role in an
exercise like this."
BALTOPS came to a close with a large
unscripted tactical exercise during which 30 ships
were put into a two-team, simulated battle-at-sea
using all the training they received. The simu-
lation lasted three days and ended with a post
operation brief.
The majority of the exercise fleet will pull into
Kiel, Germany, and hold a reception celebrating
the successful completion of BALTOPS.
BALTOPS aims to enhance maritime safety
and security in the Baltic Sea through increased
interoperability and cooperation among regional

Underwood Receives

CNO Enviro Award

THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, Thursday, June 25, 2009 7

From USS Underwood
USS Underwood received
the Chief of Naval Operation's
Environmental Award for small
Presented by Chief of
Naval Operations Adm. Gary
Roughead on May 28, the award
recognizes ships and installa-
tions that have not only adhered
to pollution prevention and
resource conservation, but have
had zero incidents or mishaps.
Receiving the award along
with Underwood Commanding
Officer, Cmdr. Wesley Smith,
Interior Communications 2nd
Class Petty Officer Michael
Bean said, "It was an honor and

a privilege to accept the award
from the CNO in person."
During Underwood's 2008-
2009 CNT Deployment the crew
maintained an "environmentally
friendly" culture that afforded
strict adherence to waste dis-
posal guidelines.
Such discipline requires clear
rules and procedures for dis-
posing waste both at sea and in
port facilities. Daily practices
adopted by Underwood's crew
such as separating trash helped
promote environmental conser-
vation and awareness.
Cited in the award presen-
tation, the ship "maintained a
zero-leakage refrigerant system"

and "achieved zero disposals of
any plastics at sea."
Underwood's excellence can
be attributed in large part to
engineering department's vigi-
lant watchstanding and com-
prehensive equipment mainte-
Not wasting any time cele-
brating, the crew presses for-
ward ensuring Underwood's
success in the coming year.

USS The Sullivans 'Sticks Together' On Ride

By Ensign Kyle Alwert
The Sulhvans Public. ;
What better way to start
a Navy day than enjoying a
motorcycle ride to work with

shipmates? This is exactly what
occurred on the morning of June
15. USS The Sullivans' motor-
cycle coordinator, Senior Chief
Operations Specialist Clements,

planned a great opportunity for
our motorcycle riders to come
together and enjoy the camara-
derie and sport of motorcycle
riding and also support national

ride your bike to work day.
The meeting place of choice
was the Dunkin Donuts on
Mayport Road. All who attend-
ed were treated to coffee and
donuts by the Commanding
Officer, Cmdr. Ryan Tillotson,
who also joined the crew in
this event. With the CO lead-
ing the way, USS The Sullivans
motorcycle riders rode onto
base united and in great spirits.
The CO's purpose for this ride
was to highlight the importance
or motorcycle safety. All riders
were required to be in full com-
pliance with all applicable Navy

motorcycle safety regulations to
participate. Several discussions
regarding safety courses, styles
of safety gear, and riding styles
were shared in an informal
manner. All 12 riders enjoyed
the ride while reinforcing how
to keep "the shiny side up."
Although separated at times
by traffic, the crew stuck to
their beloved ship's motto of
"We Stick Together" and pulled
off into a parking lot to wait
for their shipmates. Once all
together, they continued on their
leisurely ride to base as brothers
sharing a common love for rid-

The warmth of the sun was
comforting in the early hours
of the morning and the riders
were blessed with fair weather.
The sound of 12 motorcycles
roaring in unison is a sound that
only motorcycle riders can truly
appreciate. The loud rumbling
was a soothing and refreshing
start to another fine Navy day.
USS The Sullivans plans to
expound on this exciting day by
organizing future rides. The par-
ticipants had a great time and
more importantly, did so safely.

lunchtime ride.

Four Eight "Vipers" at the
Children from third, fourth
and fifth grade cycled through
the classroom anxious to learn
about the helicopters and see
the gear utilized by pilots and
aircrew. As the crew discussed
the importance of education
and training with the students,
they were able to emphasize
the connection between careers
in aviation and courses such
as English, Spelling, Math and
Morris demonstrated the
Night Vision Goggles, allowing
students the opportunity to look
through the goggles and observe
what the aircrew sees during
night operations. Lansford dis-
cussed aircrew survival and

FFSC Celebrates

30th Anniversary

Navy Region Southeast Family Readiness Program will
commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Fleet and Family
Support Center (FFSC) on July 8 with a special Tri-Site
Anniversary luncheon.
The program will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the River Cove
Conference Center, Bldg. 10, Naval Air Station (NAS)
The guest speaker will be Alice M. Stratton, former Deputy
Assistant Secretary of The Navy for Force Support and
Families. As the young spouse of Captain Richard Stratton, a
prisoner of war (POW) during the Vietnam era, Mrs. Stratton
and a small group of military spouses played a major role in
lobbing congress and the Department of Defense for a bet-
ter support system for military families. As a result of their
efforts, the Navy Family Service Center was born.
Tickets for this event are $10 and can be purchased at the
FFSC. To purchase tickets or to obtain additional informa-
tion, please contact Martina A. Williams at 904-270-6600 ext.

is designed to provide partici-
pants with an understanding of
what stress is and how it affects
them. It will also help partici-
pants begin to look at their own

cope with stress. Participants
will be challenged to develop
behavior and lifestyle changes
that will improve their ability to
cope with stress.

many people, anger serves them
many uses, but all too often,
it is at a high cost...usually of
relationships, unhappiness in
the workplace, and a general
feeling of disdain. If you want
to be able to break out of the
"get angry/get even" syndrome,
come to this class. Participants
learn how anger and judgment
are related, about irrational
beliefs and faulty self-talk, what
"E + R = 0" means, and the
roles of stress and forgiveness
in anger.

Joint Exercise Enhances Logistics

Capabilities Needed For Any Contingency

By Mass Communication
Specialist Katrina Parker
Navy Publhc,; SupportElement
Joint Logistics Over-the-
Shore (JLOTS), a mutli-service
cargo distribution exercise, offi-
cially began June 15.
JLOTS is a test of criti-
cal military capability that
allows equipment and sustain-
ment supplies to reach specific
areas without the benefit of a
fixed port facility. The exercise
increases interoperability and
improves military readiness by
alleviating situational sustain-
ment issues.
"JLOTS is an annual exer-
cise that allows the Navy and
Army to practice operations
of our logistics equipment
over an unapproved beach in a
joint environment," said Capt.
Clayton Saunders, the commo-
dore of Naval Beach Group 2.
"It gives us the opportunity to
integrate with one another and
to rehearse our ability to move
cargo, rolling stock and contain-
ers over a beach."
This capability ensures that
military forces can discharge a

ship off shore and move cargo
into an area of operations with-
out improved port facilities.
The Navy, Army and Air Force
are working together to con-
tribute to this viable technique,
enhancing capabilities for tac-
tical or humanitarian missions
anywhere in the world. Military
logistics is an increasingly joint
task, so the joint training envi-
ronment is critical for future
"JLOTS is an important exer-
cise because U.S. armed forces
may be required to do disaster
relief or humanitarian assistance
to a port that has been damaged,
so with this capability we can
still bring the cargo in," said
JLOTS Task Force Commander
Army Col. Chuck Maskell.
"What we are training for here
is a worst case scenario. We
have many tools at our disposal
many of which would be helpful
during a natural disaster, includ-
ing watercraft and causeways."
JLOTS improves current
alternatives to providing sus-
tainment, such as air support.
"Air support provides a
vital link to sustainment, but

it can only provide so much,"
Saunders said. "While you can
get some initial support from
air, when you start talking about
some heavy supplies and fuel,
you cannot bring it in by air. We
have to have the means to bring
that support from the sea to the
Beach Master Unit 2, Assault
Craft Unit 2 and Amphibious
Construction Battalion 2, all sta-
tioned out of Naval Amphibious
Base Little Creek, are participat-
ing in this exercise to assist in
both the sea and shore aspects.
"The beach master unit pro-
vides the ability to traffic and
salvage to the beach; the assault
craft unit has the displacement
craft we are utilizing, and the
construction battalion provides
the camp infrastructure as well
as additional ship to shore sup-
port," said Saunders.
The exercise, by both ground
convoy and water movement,
started in May and will continue
until the beginning of July. The
actual discharge of the vessels
and the moving of the cargo to
the beach took place June 15-

Protect Your Skin From Damaging Summer Sun

By Laura Goldstein
Naval Branch Health Clinic Mayport,
Skin cancer is the most com-
mon form of cancer in the
United States, according to the
Centers for Disease Control.
The two most common types,
basal cell carcinoma and squa-
mous cell carcinoma, are highly
Melanoma, the third most
common skin cancer, is more
dangerous, especially among
young people. In its advanced
state, it can cause serious illness

and even death. Fortunately,
melanoma rarely strikes without
However, if it is recognized
and treated early, it is nearly
100 percent curable. But if it
is not, the cancer can advance
and spread to other parts of the
body, where it becomes hard to
treat and can be fatal. While it
is not the most common of the
skin cancers, it causes the most
deaths. Most melanomas are
caused by exposure to ultravio-
let (UV) light in sunlight or tan-
ning beds.

Anyone can get skin cancer,
but some things put you at high-
er risk, like:
*A lighter skin color.
*A personal or family history
of skin cancer.
*Exposure to the sun through
work and play.
*A history of sunburns early
in life.
*Skin that burns, freckles,
reddens easily, or becomes pain-
ful in the sun.
*Blue or green eyes.
*Blond or red hair.
Remember, try to seek shade,

especially during midday
hours. A good rule of thumb
for decreasing ultraviolet light
exposure is to avoid the sun
between the hours of 9 a.m. and
3 p.m. or avoid the sun when
your shadow is shorter than
your height. These are rough
rules, however, and can vary
depending on locality and indi-
vidual skin cancer risk. And,
cover up with clothing to pro-
tect exposed skin. You should
wear a hat with a wide brim to
shade the face, head, ears and
neck. Sunglasses should also

be worn. Look for sunglasses
that wrap around and block as
close to 100 percent of both
UVA and UVB rays as possible.
Sunscreen should be applied
that has an SPF factor of 15
or higher, and it should have
both UVA and UVB protection.
Avoid tanning salons and use
of tanning beds or lamps. They
are as dangerous as the UV rays
from the sun.
Take precautions against sun
exposure every day of the year,
especially during midday hours
(10 a.m.-4 p.m.), when UV rays

are strongest and do the most
damage. UV rays can reach you
on cloudy days as well as sunny
days. UV rays also reflect off
of surfaces like water, cement,
sand and snow.
And most importantly, self
exams for moles are very cru-
cial in detecting the disease dur-
ing the early stages. Moles that
are irregular in color or shape
are suspicious of a malignant or
a premalignant melanoma. If
such moles are detected, seek
medical diagnosis immediately.

tives onboard our aircraft car-
riers, amphibious assault ships
and shore facilities. Continued

are professional oriented and
are attended by shipboard and

agents (ISEA) and manpower
management directors.
Agenda items are screened

communications between fleet
Aviation Boatswain's Mates and
personnel in agencies respon-
sible for design and imple-
mentation of various operating
systems.Worksop results are
then forwarded to the CNO's
office for review, assignment

the quality input of each work-

Groundwork For 2010 CNP Programs

From ( of Naval Personnel Public

Recently, the chief of naval
personnel (CNP) reported to
Congress that the Navy will
continue on its current path to
ensure recruitment and reten-
tion of top performers.
For the second consecutive
year, the Navy will end the
fiscal year above the statuto-
ry end-strength limit to meet
global demands. The Navy will
also sustain current deployment
dwell times to minimize stress
on the force, departing from
the reduction of force strategy
adhered to in previous years.
"Our stabilization efforts
have been directed at sustain-

ing a high-quality force able to
respond to new mission areas
within our fiscal authorities,"
said Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson,
Looking ahead, the 2010
naval personnel budget request
sustains reenlistment bonus
programs at the 2009 level. It
also increases funding for fam-
ily support programs; Safe
Harbor's wounded, ill and
injured programs; and supports
building resilience and foster-
ing a culture that encourages
Sailors to seek help in response
to stress, Ferguson testified.
The Navy also plans to con-
tinue to offer its current com-
pensation benefits and flexible

career opportunities, highlight-
ing training and education ini-
"Education and training are
strategic investments in our
future, and we remain com-
mitted to supporting the per-
sonal and professional devel-
opment of our Sailors across
their careers," said Ferguson.
"We feel the budget request bal-

ances our education and train-
ing requirement and includes
growth in important new mis-
sion areas, such as cyber-war-
fare, language and culture."
Ferguson also plans to con-
tinue monitoring programs
and trends to ensure the force
is adequately compensated for
their service to the nation.
