Naval Station Mayport is
cleaning u p its shoreline
with your help. Mayport's
Environmental Department
is looking for volunteers to
participate in the 2009 Mid-
Summer Shoreline Clean-up
on July 16.
The goals of the 2009 Mid-
Summer Shoreline Clean-up
are to have a focused event
in which military and civilian
volunteers demonstrate their
commitment as good stew-
ards of our environment and
to remove a significant quan-
tity of debris that has washed

the health of aquatic wildlife.
Volunteers may partici-
pate at one of three locations
on Station: Reynolds Park
(on river front across from
the Recycling Center); west
end of Jetties (north end of
Bon Homme Richard Street,

Heat Stress: Be Aware, Take Precautions

By Lt. Hristos G. Tsingelis
Naval Branch Health Clinic Mayport
Heat stress can be a seri-
ous problem in hot operating
environments, either work or
recreation. High temperatures,
high humidity, sunlight, and
heavy workloads increase the
likelihood of heat stress.
The core body temperature
for a human being must be
maintained within a very nar-
row range, regardless of work
load or adverse environmental
conditions. The body initially
responds to heat by evapora-
tion through sweating and by
circulating blood closer to the
skin's surface to dissipate heat
and lower the main body tem-

Increased heat can also
make exposed individuals lose
their concentration or become
fatigued or irritable, and thus
the chance of accidents and
injuries increases.
Individuals with heart, lung
or kidney disease, diabetes and
those on medications are more
likely to experience heat stress
Diet pills, sedatives, tran-
quilizers, caffeinated drinks
and excessive alcohol con-
sumption can all intensify heat
stress effects.
Understanding how to deal
with heat stress can help to
prevent or reduce accidents

and is important to exposed
individuals' health and well-
being. A victim of heat
exhaustion may have some or
all of these signs or symptoms:
*Heavy sweating, clammy,
flushed, or pale skin, weak-

ness, dizziness, nausea, rapid
and shallow breathing, head-
ache, vomiting, fainting.
If heat stress has occurred,
proper first aid must be admin-
istered immediately. First-aid

Your Skin
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 with-
out warning.
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 ultra-
violet (UV) light in sunlight or
tanning beds.
Anyone can get skin can-
cer, but some things put you at
higher 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
painful 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

Chaplain's Corner

The following well-known
anecdote makes the point:
A hen and a pig decided to
take a long journey together.
After walking for some distance
they became pretty hungry and
so they began to look for a
restaurant. They finally came
across a restaurant that had a
large sign outside which read,
"Ham and Eggs our Specialty."
Well, the hen was all eager to
go in and go at it. She became
impatient with her friend's
hesitation and asked him why
he was being so "pig headed"
about going in the restaurant.
The pig looked up at the sign,

Chaplain Joe Molina
CDS40 Staff Chaplain

looked at the hen and said, "My
dear, it's easy enough for you
to go in. All they expect from
you is a contribution. But....
from me...they will expect a
total commitment."
"Total commitment," are
two words that scare the wits
out of the general public; two
words that have become a rare
commodity in modern times.
Many people suffer from a
lack of long-term commit-
ments to friendship. Many
have forgotten the fine art and
great pleasure that comes from
building long-term meaningful
relationships. Many of us have

become afraid of the commit-
ment and afraid of the demands
that meaningful friendships
make on our lives. But, let's
face it; we can agree that with-
out meaningful friendships we
are somehow incomplete as per-
So, let us "embrace the
moment" and recapture some
principles on the art of building
1. Take the initiative In
building friendships one of the
two parties must be prepared to
take the initiative. Be the cata-
lyst when the opportunity avails

*Become genuinely interested
in other people.
*Smile with sincerity. It takes
less facial muscles to produce a
smile than to create a grin.
*Remember peoples' names.
*Be a good listener.
2. Make a Commitment
- Through the identification of
mutual goals create accountabil-
ity and...
*Be an encourager.
*Be prepared to give and
receive wise counsel.
*Challenge your friend's
3. Love Selflessly Indeed,
this is the glue that cements true

meaningful friendships. Once
you start to put a dollar value
or interjecting selfish motives
into friendships, they become
superficial and fragile. This
principle is very likely impos-
sible to achieve. It is a godly
trait and the best living model
that we have which exemplified
this kind of love is quoted as
having said the following:
"Greater love has no one than
this that he lay down his life for
his friends."

Homefront in Focus

By Beth Wilson
Military Spouse Contributor
June is historically the month for
weddings. Dating back to ancient
Rome and Juno, the goddess of mar-
riage, getting married in June was
believed to be 'lucky' or 'blessed' for
a happy, prosperous marriage. Today,
June continues to be the popular and
romantic month for weddings and that
includes military weddings. Peruse the
local paper and you will see wedding
announcements that include military
couples. This week's column is dedi-
cated to welcoming our new fellow
spouses to the 'MilSpouse Club.'
Congratulations on your recent
marriage and welcome to military
Spousedom! As a new spouse I am
sure you are excited about this new
lifestyle and building a life together
with that man or woman in uniform.
This column is offers a few basics to
get you on the road to successful navi-
gation of Navy spousedom.

The Basics: If you and your ser-
vice member have not already done
so, schedule a trip to the ID Office
to obtain your military dependent ID.
You will need a copy of your mar-
riage license and birth certificate. Your
dependent ID is the key to access-
ing services and benefits as a spouse.
You will present it each time you go
on [any military] base, at the medi-
cal clinic, commissary (grocery store),
Navy Exchange or NEX (depart-
ment store), base theatre, gym, bowl-
ing alley and other services on base.
Guard it like your Driver's license and
Social Security card. One note on your
Dependent ID, many still list your ser-
vice member's social security number.
As you know identity theft is huge so
please protect this information.
The next stop is Pass & ID for decals
for your car. You will need your driv-
er's license, vehicle registration and
proof of insurance. The decals go on
your vehicle and permit you to drive

your vehicle on base.
Your service member will add you
to DEERS (Defense Eligibility and
Enrollment Reporting System). Once
you are in the system you can enroll in
TriCare (medical coverage) and United
Concordia (Tricare Dental Program).
You can enroll at the local military
treatment facility (MTF) near you.
There are several plan options avail-
able and you can read about them at
the local TriCare office or online at
www.tricare.mil. You can enroll for
dental online at www.tricaredentalpro-
Know your resources: Many military
marriages begin right before an upcom-
ing move or deployment. Either event
presents challenges. Knowing your
resources will help you sail through
them. The first resource is the Fleet
and Family Resource Center (FFSC).
Each base has an FFSC where you
will find a helpful, highly trained and
experienced staff offering classes and

individual support for you. Your base
website will contain the contact infor-
mation for your local FFSC. Make the
FFSC one of your first stops. Pick up
a 'welcome packet,' check out their
classes and services which include,
"Navy Spouse 101." The FFSC will
introduce you to additional resourc-
es such as Military One Source,
COMPASS, Navy-Marine Corps Relief
Society, local resources and much
more. Get to know your FFSC!
Get Connected: There are many
organizations and fellow spouses who
can assist you in building your new
life as a Navy wife. The first person to
contact is your Navy Family Command
Ombudsman. This fellow Navy spouse
is a volunteer that is interviewed and
appointed by the commanding offi-
cer of your Sailor's command. They
are trained as a resource for you with
information, referrals, communication
and support. Your Sailor can get their
name and contact information from the

Plan of the Day/Week or many com-
mands have this info on their website.
Each command has a Family
Readiness Group or FRG. This is a
group of spouses just like you who
get together for friendship, projects,
information and support. Again, your
service member can obtain the contact
information of your command FRG.
Entering the world of military
spousedom is both exciting and a bit
overwhelming but armed with resourc-
es and information we can 'navigate'
even the roughest of seas. Welcome to
the world of military spousedom...you
are truly among friends.

Naval Branch Health Clinic
(BHC) Mayport is always look-

services it provides to the mili-

the Pharmacy's new Benefits

She provides guidance and
assistance to patients who are
filling prescriptions.
Her primary role is to make
the prescription process sim-
pler, faster and more convenient
for patients. Patients entering
the Pharmacy are greeted by
Kayser's friendly smile backed
by her wealth of knowledge,
which she gladly shares.

The best prevention mecha-
nism for heat stress is to avoid
hot and humid environments.
If operation under these condi-
tions is necessary, then individ-
uals should take proper steps to
ensure acclimatization.
Acclimatization to heat is
a process of adaptation that
involves a stepwise adjustment
to heat over a period of at least
one week long. To achieve
acclimatization, an individual
must work in the heat at the

15 or higher, and it should have
both UVA and UVB protection.
Avoid tanning salons and use of
tanning beds or lamps.
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

Individuals should always
drink plenty of water when
operating in the heat. Simply
relying on feeling thirsty will
not ensure adequate hydration.

quarts of sweat that may be
produced in hot environments,
individuals require to consume
one-half to one cup of water
every 20 minutes of the work-
day. Water at about 55 F (cool)

Holly Boynton
U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/
U.S. Fourth Fleet Publhc. --
U.S. Fourth Fleet celebrated
its first anniversary with staff,
family, and friends during a pic-
nic July 10.
The officers, enlisted Sailors,
civilian, and contractor staff and
their family and friends enjoyed
food, games and each other's
company during the first anni-
versary of the re-establishment
of 4th Fleet. Fourth Fleet was re-
established July 12, 2008 after a
52-year deactivation at the end
of World War II.
"It's an honor and a pleasure
to share our triumphs over the
past year with the 4th Fleet team
- friends, family members, and
representatives of our partner
navies," said Guillory. "Our list
of accomplishments as the new-
est fleet staff has been impres-
sive and deserves to be recog-
nized and celebrated. I particu-
larly want to recognize the sac-
rifice and support by our family
members who play a key role in
4th Fleet."
Guillory also announced the
appointment of 4th Fleet's first
family Ombudsmen, Ms. Arlene
"Family readiness is directly
linked to mission readiness and
the Ombudsman is a critical link
in getting important information
to the families," said Guillory.

Fleet Orientation

By MC1(SW) Holly Boynton
U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/ U.S. Fourth Fleet
Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern
Command and U.S. 4th Fleet (NAVSO/4th Fleet)
Rear Adm. Victor Guillory met with Midshipmen
July 2 and July 7 during Summer Training 2009.
The Midshipmen, from the U.S. Naval
Academy and various Reserve Officers Training
Corps units, toured the 4th Fleet headquarters dur-
ing their fleet orientation training. During their
visit to the NAVSO/4th Fleet headquarters, the
Midshipmen had a question and answer session
with Guillory.
"What I see here today is my eventual relief,
which is you," said Guillory. "As you go forward,
what I hope you take from this visit to 4th Fleet
headquarters is the strong partnerships we have
with the region, the many different types of chal-
lenges we face as the Americas and the missions
we plan and execute in conjunction with our part-
ners to combat those challenges. I hope you get
excited for the challenges that await you after you
earn your commission and for what the U.S. Navy
is doing, not just in this region, but worldwide.
The Midshipmen also met with 4th Fleet's
Senior Enlisted Advisor, toured 4th Fleet's Fleet
Command Center and Maritime Intelligence

Center, and interacted with NAVSO's Foreign
Liaison Officers (FLO) from Brazil, Chile,
Colombia, and Peru. Capitan de Fragata Augusto
Ganoza, Peru FLO, spoke with the group about
his time at the Naval Academy. Ganoza graduated
from the Academy in 1993. He compared his time
then with his tour at NAVSO now.
"Being a Midshipmen here was very easy,
but now with a family it's a lot different," said
Ganoza. "Lots of things to take care of but it's a
great cultural experience for my family."
As the Navy component command of
SOUTHCOM, NAVSO's mission is to direct
U.S. Naval forces operating in the Caribbean,
Central and South American regions and interact
with partner nation navies within the maritime

HSL-40 Leads 'Helos In High Schools' Initiative

From HSL-40
The "Helo's in High Schools"
Initiative was developed by the
Navy to increase awareness of
the Navy Aviation Air Rescue
(AIRR Rating) in support of
Navy Recruiting Command's
recruiting efforts to find more
AIRR candidates.
In conjunction with HSC-2,
HSC-3, HS-10 and HSM-41,
HSL-40 participated in local
high school fly-ins to assist the
Recruiting Commands with
their efforts. HSL-40 lead the
effort, with contact to more than
60 percent of all the schools
visited, mostly in the Orlando,
Florida area.
During the initiative, HSL-
40 flew SH-60B helicopters to
Oviedo High School, Lake Mary
High School, Lake Howell High
School and Allen D. Nease
Senior High School, where they
landed on each school's foot-
ball field as the students looked
on from the stands. Local law
enforcement and fire depart-
ments played a large part in the
safety of the mission, stationed
at each field where a helicop-
ter landed. At each school, the
crew shut down and stood by
for a static helicopter display
where students could look in

and around the helicopter, and
talk to the pilots, Naval aircrew-
men and local recruiters.
Navy Recruiting Command
deemed the program hugely
successful, with approximately
6,000 civilian attendees con-
tacted directly and much more
awareness with the follow-up
media coverage. The events
generated immeasurable leads
and community awareness of
the US Naval Aviation com-
munity and particularly the
Aviation Rescue Swimmer
community, and also had a large
impact on the development of
future successful relations with
local communities.
Several areas are currently
requesting more events of this
type, and the plans are in motion
to continue the "Helo's in High
Schools" Initiative as a yearly
program. HSL-40 was dubbed
the "model squadron" in this
effort, as they were integral in
the planning and development
of a new initiative that proved
to be extremely successful.

Management, FFSC
What does anger do for you?
Communicate for you? Keep
people at a safe distance from
you? Keep you in charge? For
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.

Gettysburg Holds Suez Canal Transit Run

From USS Gettysburg
USS Gettysburg transitioned
from 5th Fleet to 6th Fleet via the
Suez Canal on July 6. The Suez
Canal is an international canal
in Egypt between the main-
land and the Sinai Peninsula
which links the Red Sea and
Mediterranean Sea. The canal
transit is approximately 120
miles in length and at 200
meters wide it was challeng-
ing, full-day navigation evolu-
tion. In addition to the naviga-
tion challenge the ship was also
required to man additional force
protection watches due to the
restricted nature and location of
the channel.
In spite of the additional
watches and heightened alert
Gettysburg participated in the
unique tradition of "Running
the Ditch." While transiting the
Suez Canal, Gettysburg Sailors
were allowed to run topside laps
in an effort to run a cumulative
total of 120 miles. The turn-
out was very impressive with
63 runners participating during
their off times from standing

personnel housing, administra-
tive facilities, warehouses and
supply facilities, training facili-
ties, personnel support and ser-
vice facilities and security level
facilities. Abatement and han-
dling of hazardous or regulated
materials will also be included.
Each contract will be for one
base year with four one-year
option periods at a maximum
amount of $250 million for all
five contracts. The work will
be concentrated at, but not lim-
ited to Naval Air Station (NAS)
Jacksonville, Fla.; Naval Station
Mayport, Fla.; Naval Support
Activity Orlando, Fla.; Naval
Submarine Base Kings Bay,
Ga.; and surrounding supported
commands in Northern Florida
and Southern Georgia.
As part of the contract, Sauer
Incorporated was awarded a
$6.9 million task order for the
design and construction of the
Child Development Center
at NAS Jacksonville (CDC
Jacksonville). The nearly
31,000 square foot, one-story
facility will include storage,
shade structures, playground
and equipment, fencing, paving
and site improvements. Work
on this project also includes
demolition of the existing CDC
Jacksonville buildings and foun-

increase our capacity and allow
us to better serve our sailors and
their families in a state of the
art facility with the latest ame-
nities," said NAS Jacksonville
Morale Welfare and Recreation
Director John Bushick.
"This CDC will be the largest
center that will be construct-
ed in Navy with a capacity of
302. The infant (6 weeks -12
months) capacity will increase
from 40 to 56, the pre-toddler
(12-24 months) capacity will
increase from 30 to 60, toddler
(24-36 months) capacity will
increase from 56 to 70, pre-
school (3 to 5 years) capacity
will decrease from 120 to 116,"
he continued. "This will make
the total increase from 246 to
302 children. We currently do
not have any excess capacity in
other rooms to accommodate
infant and pre-toddler children.
Once the new CDC is open I
believe the wait list will be very
short and we should be able to
accommodate most children in
the CDC."
The CDC Jacksonville is
scheduled to be completed by
November 2010.
The expected completion date
for all work on this contract is
June 2014.

Gettysburg track it takes seven
laps around the main deck to
equal a single mile and in spite
of its relatively short length, the
average distance ran by each
runner was 5.5 miles! With run-
ners on deck all day Gettysburg
was able to far surpass its goal
of running the ditch by complet-
ing 2,446 laps for a total dis-
tance of 350 memorable miles.
The effort by all Sailors was
commendable but a few stood
out for accumulating impres-
sive numbers. The leading
runner for the day Lt.j.g. Chad
Lapp who ran a full marathon
in under four hours, even after
standing the 0300-0700 watch.
Other top distance participants
were Master Chief (CMC)
David Rudd with 13.1 miles, Lt.
Dennis Panos with 13.5 miles
and the top female Lt. Lentesia
Hill with 11.5 miles.
Gettysburg ran the ditch and
then some in her transition from
5h Fleet to 6th Fleet. It was an
unforgettable event that will no
doubt be a great story for years
to come.

VBSS Teams Train To Board Vessels Of Interest

By MC2
Coleman Thompson
USSHarry S. Truman Public. i .
In addition to protecting and
accompanying USS Harry S.
Truman (CVN 75), the other
ships in Truman Strike Group
have the duty of inspecting
suspicious vessels with highly
trained Visit, Board, Search and
Seizure (VBSS) teams.
The purpose of a VBSS team
is to conduct inspections on ves-
sels of interest and to combat
terrorism and piracy.
During the Composite
Training Unit Exercise
(COMPTUEX), the teams
worked with several Navy ships
in the area conducting board-
ing operations, detaining and
processing prisoners, and tak-
ing control of ships that posed
a threat.
"These training operations are
key," said Ensign Shawn Toth,
the boarding officer for the
VBSS team on board guided-
missile destroyer USS Carney
(DDG 64). "The more training
we can get the better. We've
already had a few dry runs. We

ran across some problems along
the way, but we addressed them
and are better prepared for the
real thing."
The VBSS exercises offered
the Sailors involved a chance
to practice something that is
not usually prevalent on larger
"I think it's unique," said
Engineman 2nd Class (SW)
Chad Zandi, a member of
Carney's VBSS team. "You
don't really get to do things like
this in most parts of the fleet."
Repeated training is essential
to maintaining mission readi-
ness for the group, and the team
must be ready for any situation
since the need and opportunity
to board another vessel may
present itself at any time.
Once a vessel of interest
comes into range of the strike
group, queries are made to vari-
ous agencies about the vessel's
purpose and cargo.
If anything is suspicious, the
team will launch a small craft
and move to board the ship.
From there, the team will
gather more information on

the crew and inspect the ship's
cargo. If any crew member's
information comes in as a threat
or the cargo is found to be con-
traband, the team will assess
the situation and move forward
With the recent rash of pirate
attacks, it's more important than
ever that these teams remain
ready in the event that they
encounter a pirate threat.
They train to be ready for any
possible situation by mastering
weapons and non-lethal tactics
in order to easily subdue hostile
"We've done a lot of good
training out here," said Toth.
"We did a few dry runs, all
involving different players and
scenarios. It's always differ-
ent when you're against some-
body that's unpredictable, and
the guys out here posing as the
opposition have been doing just
The team trained with former
Navy SEALs who worked as
evaluators and simulated crew
members on the ships partici-
pating in the exercise.

Twelve Navy Reserve Sailors
integrated into Destroyer
Squadron FOUR ZERO
(DESRON 40) staff opera-
tions June 21- July 4 as they
participated in the Chilean led,
Multinational Team Work South
exercise in Northern Chile.
The exercise, conducted every
two years by the Chilean Navy,
included 22 ships, 15 aircraft,
and more than 3,000 Sailors.
Participating countries includ-
ed Brazil, Chile, France, Great
Britain, and the United States.
Reservists from DESRON 40
units in Houston and Pensacola
served aboard the three U.S.
ships participating: USS Doyle
(FFG 39) with embarked
DESRON 40 staff, USS
Kauffman (FFG 59) and USS
Ford (FFG 54) with embarked
Helicopter Anti Submarine
Squadron (Light) (HSL) 43
detachment 4. The Sailors
were responsible for integrat-
ing with their active duty coun-
terparts in Radio and in the
Combat Information Center to
form a cohesive multinational
staff. Duties included imple-
menting numerous communi-
cations plans required for the
exercise and working as watch-
standers. Onboard Doyle, the

reserve Sailors implemented
the DESRON watch team and
served in the planning cell
as the Air Operations Officer
responsible for coordinating the
movement of the three helicop-
ters and one P-1ll assigned to
"Working as Air Operations
and coordinating air tasking
made this exercise a satisfy-
ing and worthwhile AT (active
duty time) as I was able to use
my flight experience to relieve
some of the workload from the
DESRON staff and make a pos-
itive contribution," commented
Lt. Cmdr. William Sipperly.
Chief Operational Specialist
Richard McCullough com-
mented "The hands-on train-
ing is invaluable because I
only get to do this two weeks
a year. Working as part of a
multinational staff as a reserv-
ist gave me great pride in
myself, DESRON 40, and the
U.S. Navy, knowing that we are
working to improve interoper-
ability with all these countries."
As part of their annual
Southern Seas deployment,
the DESRON 40 staff relies
on reserve integration to com-
plete their mission. This year,
Reserve Chaplain Lt. Cmdr.
Jose Molina is embarked as the
Command Chaplain responsible

for coordinating all Community
Relations (COMREL) projects
and Project Handclasp deliv-
eries during the 13 visits to 9
In addition, Reserve Lt.
Reginald Desaga is embarked
onboard Kauffman serving as
the staff liaison officer. "The
work that these two Officers do
is vital to the Total Force con-
cept for the Navy. They have
fully integrated into the active
duty staff and play a critical role
in allowing us to complete our
mission" commented DESRON
40 Commodore Rudy Laco.
DESRON 40 is assigned as
the task group commander for
Task Group 40.0, executing the
Southern Seas Deployment.
Southern Seas is part of U.S.
Southern Command Partnership
of the Americas strategy and
focuses on building interop-
erability with partner nations
in Central America, South
America, and the Caribbean
through Naval exercises, mili-
tary to military training engage-
ments, and COMREL projects.

Lt. Alberto Guerro of the
Chilean Naval Training Center
and embarked Chilean staff
on board Doyle. "For the U.S.
Navy it would be John Paul
Jones, for the Chilean navy you
have a war hero from a century
ago, a captain who never sur-
rendered and never gave in. He
never gave up his flag. The U.S.
Navy is probably the most pow-
erful navy today, their acknowl-
edgement of our heroes is a
sign of our friendship and last-
ing relationship. By seeing the
ship's company salute our hero,
the man I hope to be someday, I
am deeply grateful."
"It's is the Chilean version of

our USS Arizona memorial,"
said Gunner's Mate 1st Class
Donald Cisco. "I felt a sense
of reverence and honor for the
men who fought here. This was
the site of a very significant and
historical battle."
After the honor ceremony, the
ship rendered a 21 gun salute to
the country of Chile to signify
the respect and mutual coopera-
tion that Chile and the United
States have for each other.
Guerro and multi-nation-
al staff members from Chile
and France augmented the
Destroyer Squadron Four
Zero staff embarked on board
Doyle to support the 2009

Teamwork South exercise oper-
ations. Teamwork South is a
multinational exercise hosted
by Chile, and included par-
ticipating navies from Brazil,
France, United Kingdom, and
the United States. The purpose
of the exercise was to build
interoperability among the
participating navies in a multi
threat environment
"Teamwork South has been a
long lasting exercise and every
year we learn something new,"
said Guerro. "The interoperabil-
ity between our two navies con-
tinues to increase and interna-
tionally, the safety of the oceans
continues to be improved. I am

looking forward to seeing the
U.S. Navy here again in 2011."
Doyle is on a six-month
deployment to the 4th Fleet
Area of Operations as part of
Southern Seas 2009 as part
of U.S. Southern Command's
Partnership of the America's
strategy to improve interoper-
ability and strengthen relations
between partner nations. Doyle
is joined by the frigates USS
Kauffman (FFG 59) and USS
Ford (FFG 54) with Destroyer
Squadron Four Zero (DESRON
40) as the command element.

Navy Unveils Self-Apply Option For PCS Orders

From Navy Personnel Command Public

The latest upgrade to the
Navy's detailing system
empowers Sailors by allowing
them to submit their own job
applications when negotiating
for permanent change of sta-
tion (PCS) orders, according to
NAVADMIN 200/09, released
July 7.
Career Management System
Interactive Detailing (CMS/
ID), is a Web-based system that
allows Sailors to view available
job assignments and make appli-
cations through their command

career counselors when looking
for PCS orders. Beginning with
the July 9 CMS/ID application
cycle, many Sailors will have
the ability to submit applica-
tions on their own.
"More senior Sailors already
understand the detailing sys-
tem and know what they should
be looking for. The self-apply
option is good for them. This
frees up the career counselor
to work with junior Sailors
who may have never negotiat-
ed orders before and need help
navigating the system," said
Chief Warrant Officer Samuel

Kirkland, assigned to OPNAV
N16 Fleet Introduction team.
The OPNAV N16 Fleet
Introduction Team tests and
validates manpower, personnel,
training and education applica-
tions currently being used by
Sailors. CMS/ID Self-Apply
option was tested at 15 differ-
ent commands including ships,
shore units and squadrons dur-
ing a five-month period.
"The feedback has been very
positive. We found that Sailors
liked the empowerment," said
"Sailors have been ask-

ing for it, and the Navy really
delivered," said Senior Chief
Navy Counselor (SW) Veronica
Holliday, assigned to Navy
Region Southwest in San Diego.
Holliday's command participat-
ed in the CMS/ID Self-Apply
operational test earlier this year.
"We love it. It is like what a
lot of major businesses already
do, where you apply online or
at an application kiosk," said
While this new option allows
Sailors to apply forjobs on their
own, the career counselor will
still retain the option to review

and modify requests.
"It does not take the com-
mand out of the process because
we have to review the applica-
tions to make sure Sailors apply
to the right jobs for their career
path," said Holliday, who veri-
fies applicants at her command
meet physical readiness stan-
dards, sea-shore flow require-
ments and other factors.
Before getting started, Sailors
must meet Perform to Serve
requirements as outlined in
NAVADMIN 017/09 and 161/09
and be within their orders
negotiation window in order

to submit applications. Sailors
can access CMS/ID online at
https://www.cmsid.navy.mil. A
common access card (CAC) and
a card reader are required to log
Sailors without Internet
access should continue to com-
municate with their detailers
through the career counselor
and the chain of command.

Mayport Crew Member

Conducts First Rescue As

Coxswain On First Coast

By P03 Cindy Beckert
Public, i Detachment Jacksonville,
Petty Officer 2nd Class
Robert M. Kroll, a boatswain's
mate from Coast Guard Station
Mayport, Fla., and a Keystone
Heights, Fla., native, was still
awake when the call came in
after midnight.
Early Sunday morning Station
Mayport crewmembers had just
responded to one false-alarm
distress call and were getting
ready for bed when the second
call came in.
Approximately 20-miles off-
shore of St. Marys, Ga., a small
coastal town about 30-miles
north of Station Mayport, a boat
had capsized with three people
Kroll who earned his cox-
swain qualification just five
days earlier, led the search
crew to the scene of distress.
Coxswains serve as the boat
driver and is charged with man-

aging the crew aboard the small
boat including the search and
rescue operation.
The coxswain qualification
process can take up to a year
to complete, and includes mas-
tering practical qualification
standards such as boat handling,
navigation, team coordination
and engineering.
This was going to be Kroll's
first mission as coxswain at
Station Mayport and he said he
was nervous, but really more
excited than anything.
Kroll joined the Coast Guard
in August 2001 and knew he
wanted to become a boatswain's
"I've been around boats my
whole life, my father is a charter
captain, it was a natural choice,"
Kroll said.
As Kroll, and the four other
47-foot motor lifeboat crew-
members, approached the cap-
sized boat, he said the sinking
boat was almost completely

submerged. A helicopter crew
from Coast Guard Air Station
Savannah, Ga., had already res-
cued one man from the water,
while the other two men were
struggling to stay aboard the
sinking boat's hull.
There was yelling, he said. As
the helicopter crew threw down
a heaving line and a life raft, I
pulled the boat up towards the
men and my crew rescued them
from the water, he added.
This was not Kroll's first res-
cue ever. He said he couldn't
even begin to guess how many
rescues he has been involved
with while stationed at other
Coast Guard units throughout
the nation.
However, this was his first
rescue as coxswain along the
First Coast.
No matter how good or bad
a rescue mission turns out, the
crew sits down afterwards and
does an evaluation. We talk
about how everything went,

SBR Enjoys Windjammer Days

From USS Samuel B. Roberts PAO
USS Samuel B. Roberts (FFG 58)
recently anchored in Boothbay Harbor,
Maine to help the city celebrate the
annual Windjammer Days Festival.
The festival is held the week of June
22 and is a celebration of tall early
1900 replica sailing ships and Sailors
in general. Sammy B. was wel-
comed by the Knickerbocker Group,
host of Windjammer Days, and city
official representatives. Sammy B.'s
Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Chuck L.
Sellers, presented a plaque of apprecia-
tion to the city of Boothbay.
The next several days were full of
liberty, events, and great food. Sammy
B. Sailors enjoyed the great seafood
that Maine had to offer during their
well earned liberty, met many 'town-
ies,' and summer residents, and inter-
acted with the windjammer crews.
On the morning of June 23, a small
group of Sailors took a tour of Bath
Iron Works, in Bath, Maine, a pre-
mier ship yard for the Navy. Bath
Iron Works graciously showed the
crew around her expansive facilities,
including the Panel Line, the Unit
Assembly and Outfit I, the Blast and
Paint Building, the Ultra/Pre-Outfit
II Building, and Building Ways, the
buildings which house the five major
stages of building a warship.
"It was really awesome to see the
huge scale of the project of build-
ing a ship, and all the different stages
required. The tour was both informa-
tive and fun," said Ensign Beth-Ann
The tour was especially meaning-
ful for the group who was able to see
where their ship was built and again
repaired after the 1988 mine blast in
the Persian Gulf.

The Defense Commissary
Agency has published "The
Illustrated History of American
Military Commissaries," a
two-volume set that is the first
comprehensive history ever
compiled about the commissar-
ies that serve the U.S. armed
"It's exciting," says Philip
E. Sakowitz Jr., DeCA director
and CEO. "The book provides
a wonderful history of this great
benefit, which goes back 234
years and is interwoven with
the histories of agriculture,
business, economics, marketing,
technology, the United States
itself and the nation's armed
forces. It will bring about an
awareness of what the commis-
saries do today, as well as what
they have gone through since
their creation. It helps us realize
that today, more than ever, the
commissary is worth the trip."
The history of the commis-
sary benefit stretches back to
the establishment of the Army's
Subsistence Department in
1775. The department began
selling items "at cost" from its
warehouses to officers in 1825,
to officers' families in 1841,

By Risie Howard
JAGC Summer Intern
Since Sept. 10, 2001, there
have been increasing mon-
etary benefits for you and your
immediate family members.
On June 30, 2008, President
Bush signed into law a new
Veterans Education Assistance
Act called the Post 9/11 GI
Bill. The new bill is transfer-
rable. Transferability is a reten-
tion tool and is based on time
in the armed forces whether
active duty or selected reserves.
Members on active duty who
separate or are discharged prior
to September 10, 2001 and
subsequently affiliate with the
selected reserves may qualify
for transferability if all other
criteria are met. Read on for
more details.
What are the minimum
requirements for eligibility?
Servicemembers must have
served 90 aggregate days or
more of active duty, beginning
on or after Sept. 10, 2001.
Are there exceptions to the
minimum requirements for eli-
Yes. Individuals honorably

discharged for a service-con-
nected disability who served 30
continuous days after Sept. 10,
2001, may also establish eligi-
So what exactly do I qualify
for under the Post 9/11 GI Bill?
(1) Tuition and fees paid
directly to the institution, not
to exceed the most expensive
in-state undergraduate tuition
in your chosen state of study
(active duty individuals may
receive the total amount of
tuition and fees); (2) A month-
ly stipend paid based on the
BAH of an E-5 with depen-
dants, in same zip code as the
school (education online or
by correspondence may not
qualify); (3) Up to $1,000/yr.
for books and supplies; (4) Up
to $2,000 toward licensure or
certification tests; and (5) Up
to $1,200/yr. for tutorial assis-
tance. Individuals will gener-
ally receive 36 months of full-
time educational benefits. The
benefits are only payable for
approved training and education
programs offered at colleges
and universities.
Okay, so I qualify for all of

ing Th

these benefits if I served at least
90 days of active duty after
Sept. 10, 2001?
Not exactly, the maximum
basic benefit is earned after
serving 36 months of active
duty or after 30 days with a ser-
vice-connected disability dis-
charge. Benefits are pro-rated
to a minimum of 40 percent
of the basic benefits based on
time served, from 90 days to 36
Service Academy commit-
ments, ROTC scholarship grad-
uate commitments, and active
duty served as a requirement
for student loan repayment does
not count toward the minimum
eligibility requirements.
I heard something about being
able to transfer benefits to my
dependants.. .is that true?
Yes. However, there are addi-
tional requirements that must
be satisfied before benefits can
be transferred. Transferring
benefits to a spouse requires
six year of active service with
a commitment to serve an addi-
tional four years of active ser-
vice. Transferring benefits to a
child requires 10 years of active

service with a commitment to
serve an additional four years of
active service. Members with at
least 10 years of active service
yet either standard policy or
statute prevent them from com-
mitting another four years may
transfer benefits if they commit
for the maximum time allowed
by policy or statute.
Members with 20 years or
more of active service before
Aug. 1, 2010 require no addi-
tional service to transfer ben-
efits. Members eligible for
retirement after Aug. 1, 2009
and before Aug. 1, 2012 have
reduced additional service
Individuals who transfer ben-
efits and thereafter fail to meet
the additional service obliga-
tion may be liable to the VA for
the amount of used benefits.
Benefits may also be divided
between the servicemember and
a dependant, or between two or
more dependants. Keep in mind
that the individual transferring
the benefit retains the right to
revoke or modify the transfer at
any time.
May my dependant(s) or I use

the Post 9/11 GI Bill while I'm
on active duty?
Yes, however you or your
spouse will only be entitled to
tuition and fees; not the month-
ly stipend, books and supplies.
If the benefit is transferred to
an eligible child the monthly
stipend, books and supplies are
How long do I have to use
Post 9/11 GI Bill?
Generally, benefits are pay-
able for 15 years following the
individual's release from active
duty. If the benefits are trans-
ferred to a dependant child,
there is no time limit, but the
child may not use them after
reaching age 26.
May I use the Post 9/11 GI
Bill for education already com-
No. The Post 9/11 GI Bill is
only applicable for active duty
members of the armed forces
for education pursued on or
after Aug. 1, 2009.
What if I already qual-
ify for benefits under the old
Montgomery GI Bill or another
GI Bill?
Look before you leap. While

you may be entitled to more
than one educational bene-
fit, you may also be required
to make an irrevocable choice
of which benefit you wish to
receive. The Post 9/11 GI Bill
is not always the most finan-
cially beneficial selection, so
compare GI Bill benefits before
So, how much does it cost to
enroll in the Post 9/11 GI Bill?
Enrollment is free. In fact, if
you have already paid $1,200
under the Montgomery GI Bill
and elect the Post 9/11 GI Bill, a
portion of your contribution will
be refunded in your last month-
ly housing allowance payment.
Any individual considering
the Post 9/11 GI Bill should first
contact their Education Service
Officer. Additional information

Getting An Annullment Is Not As Easy As You Think

By Lt. Joanna Mastny
The famous last words of
many servicemembers spoken
just before rushing into mar-
riage. Some individuals, ser-
vicemembers and civilians alike,
seem to think that an annulment
is a simple way to get out of a
marriage that hasn't lasted very
long. After all, Britney Spears
and that first guy she married in
Vegas did it!
In most states it is actually
much easier to get a divorce than
to have a marriage annulled. In
Texas, for example, a simple
divorce can be accomplished in
as little as 61 days, without hav-
ing to do much more than ask
for the divorce and tell the court
how you've agreed to divide
your assets. To have a marriage
annulled you have the burden
of proving to the court that
your situation fits into one of
the limited grounds for annul-
ment. The court will usually
need to divide your assets and
debts even when an annulment
is granted.
Although grounds for annul-
ments vary by state, this article
will examine the seven general
grounds for annulment recog-
nized in Texas in order to dem-
onstrate the limited situations in
which annulments apply (if you
are outside of Texas, consult
with a licensed attorney in your
state to determine grounds for
annulment). If the facts sur-
rounding your marriage fit one
of the categories listed below,
you can petition (ask) a court
to annul your marriage. If you
don't meet any of these guide-
lines, then you must petition the
court for a divorce instead.
Underage Marriage
If a person between the ages
of 16 and 18 gets married with-
out the consent of their parent,
the parent may ask the court
to annul the child's marriage.
Annulment in this situation is
not automatic the court will
look at all of the circumstances

to decide whether an annulment
is best for the child.
Marriage while under
the Influence of Alcohol or
A person who gets married
while under the influence of
alcohol or narcotics may ask the
court for an annulment. This
type of annulment can only hap-
pen if the person asking for the
annulment did not voluntarily
live with (and/or have sexual
relations with) their spouse after
the effects of the alcohol or
drugs wore off. The party seek-
ing the annulment must prove
to the court that he or she was
so intoxicated that they did not
understand their actions at the
time of the marriage.
A marriage can be annulled if
either spouse was permanently
impotent at the time the mar-
riage occurred, and the other
spouse didn't know about it.
Only the non-impotent spouse
can request an annulment and
only if they did not voluntari-
ly live with their spouse after
learning of the impotency.
Marriage due to Fraud,
Duress or Force
A person who enters into
marriage due to fraud, duress
or force of the other spouse
may seek to have the marriage
annulled. Again, the annulment
may only be granted if the per-
son asking for the annulment
did not voluntarily live with
their spouse after learning of
the fraud or being released from
the duress or force. Do not look
at this as a "catch all" category
for annulment. A court will not
grant an annulment because one
person lied about something
along the lines of how much
money they make. However, if
a person lies about their iden-
tity or forces the other person
into marriage at gunpoint an
annulment could be granted.
Marriage while Mentally
If a person enters into a mar-

riage while they are mentally
incompetent, either they, or the
mentally competent spouse,
may ask for an annulment. If
the mentally incompetent per-
son (or their legal representa-
tive) asks for the annulment, it
can only be granted if the per-
son didn't voluntarily live with
their spouse after regaining
mental competency. If the men-
tally competent person requests
the annulment, it can only be
granted if that person didn't
know their spouse was mentally
incompetent at the time of the
marriage and did not voluntari-
ly live with their spouse after
learning of the mental incom-
Concealed Divorce
In the state of Texas, a per-
son who gets divorced may not
remarry within 30 days of their
divorce date. If they do remarry
within those 30 days, the new
spouse may seek an annulment.
The annulment may only be
granted if the new spouse did
not know of the recent divorce
at the time of the marriage, and
did not voluntarily live with
their spouse after learning of
the recent divorce.
Marriage within 72 Hours
of Receiving the Marriage
Texas law requires that a
couple apply for and receive
a marriage license at least 72
hours before the marriage cer-
emony takes place. If a couple
gets married during the 72 hour
waiting period, either member
of the couple may ask to have
the marriage annulled. Please
note that this 72 hour waiting
period does not apply to active
duty servicemembers. Texas
law permits a person on active
duty to get married as soon as
the marriage license is received.
Therefore, a servicemember or
their spouse cannot have a mar-
riage annulled on the grounds
that the ceremony took place
within 72 hours of receiving the

Are You Eligible For The

'Boomer' Deduction?

By Lt.j.g. Lea Tietje
Servicemembers who are
assigned to a two-crew subma-
rine are eligible to claim cer-
tain deductions on their income
taxes due to their unique situ-
For those not in the subma-
rine community, the Ohio class
of submarines (aka "boomers")
are manned by two separate
crews, the blue crew and the
gold crew. When one crew is
out to sea, the other is on shore
duty. Under section 162 of the
Internal Revenue Code taxpay-
ers are allowed to deduct "ordi-
nary and necessary expenses"
including "traveling expenses
while away from home in the
pursuit of a trade or business."
Boomers are eligible for this
deduction because of the two-
crew rotation. In 1967, the
IRS ruled that a naval officer
assigned to a ship or submarine
that has eating and living facili-
ties is entitled to claim the ves-
sel as "home" for the purposes
of deductions under section 162.
The IRS recently clarified that

this ruling applies to both offi-
cers and enlisted servicemem-
bers. For the boomers, when
the gold crew goes out to sea,
the blue crew remains on shore
away from their "home." This
means the shore crew is entitled
to deduct traveling expenses
for work since they are away
from home, hence the "boom-
er deduction." These travel
expenses can include travel to
and from the shore duty location
to the home of the servicemem-
ber. Other deductible expenses
can be utilities in the home.
Now, no one wants to be
audited by the IRS. A service-
member claiming the boomer
deduction must be certain that
they are only claiming the
amount of deductions they are
entitled to. It is important to
remember that the deduction
is only available to the servic-
member, not their family. For
example, if claiming a deduc-
tion for the amount of the elec-
tric bill, a servicemember who
resides with their family can
only deduct their share of the
bill and not the entire utility

bill. Additionally, the deduction
can only be claimed for unre-
imbursed expenses, thus rent or
mortgage payments cannot be
deducted if a servicemember is
reimbursed for those expenses
through their BAH. Also, if the
sub is in dry dock crewmembers
assigned to the sub cannot claim
the boomer deduction during
that time.
If you believe you qualify
for this tax deduction, but want
some help wading through the
tax forms, utilize the Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance Program
(VITA) which is offered on
many bases. VITA volunteers
may be able to help you deter-
mine if you qualify for this
deduction. If VITA is unable
to assist you, you can also go to
irs.gov and contact an IRS rep-
resentative who is knowledge-
able about this deduction.
