Naval hospital to provide evening
'Seasonal Flu Vaccine Shot Ex'
From Rod Duren

Naval Hospital Pensacola is schedu ing an Oct. 20
evening "Seasonal Flu Vaccine Shot Ex" for enrolled benefi-
ciaries of the military medical facility.

The seasonal flu vaccinations will be given in the
Outpatient Clinic located on the east side of the hospital's
main building. Enrolled beneficiaries are Defense
Department-eligible persons that have their primary care pro-
vided at the Navy hospital.
The vaccinations will be available on a walk-in basis
between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
In general, anyone who wants to reduce their chances of
getting the flu can get the seasonal flu vaccine. However, cer-

tain people should get vaccinated each year either because
they are at high risk of having serious flu-related complica-
tions or because they live with or care for high risk persons.
People at high risk of complication, such as children under
5 years of age; those who are pregnant; people over age 65;
and anyone with chronic medical conditions, should be high
on the list for getting a seasonal flu vaccination.

Three women firefighters now part of base department

Story, photos
by Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer

A month ago, Fire &
Emergency Services
Gulf Coast had never
had a female firefighter. Today
they have three.
"I'd hire a dozen more women if they
were as highly qualified as these three,"
said Fire Chief Lewis Monti, whose fire
department includes Naval Air Station
Pensacola and Naval Air Station Whiting
His new hires include Firefighter/EMT
Stephanie Peterson, who comes from
Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Va.;
Firefighter/EMT Angela Johnson, who
was previously employed as a Department
of Defense contract firefighter overseas;
and Firefighter/EMT Brittany Shaffer, who
was working as a firefighter in Crestview
prior to coming to NASP.
All three women agree it's no big deal
to them to be the first women in the depart-
ment. As Peterson likes to put it: "I just
have a different bathroom," she said.
And Monti doesn't see anything special
about being the first fire chief to hire
females as line firefighters. But he is happy
they were able to be hired all at the same
Technically, Peterson was the first to
arrive Sept. 13. Johnson and Shaffer offi-
cially started Oct. 13. All three are now
ready to go.

Firefighter/EMT Stephanie Peterson, the first female firefighter at Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast, works at a con-
trolled burn Oct. 12 at Barin Field, a naval outlying field (NOLF) near Foley, Ala.

Monti doesn't expect anything to
change. "It's nice to have the new profes-
sionals aboard, regardless of gender," he
There was one change some personal
protective equipment has to be special
ordered. After all, women are sized differ-

ently than their counterparts.
But how the job is handled will be the
same for everyone the same gear, the
same air packs and they will carry the same
hoses. They are expected to pull each other
out if the need arises.
All the firefighters at Gulf Coast provide

aircraft and structural firefighting, preven-
tion, inspections, technical rescue (automo-
tive/dive/water/confined space, etc.),
advanced life support, emergency medical
care and hazardous materials technician

Finalists identified for best Navy mess award; NAS Pensacola makes list

By Debbie Dortch
NAVSUP Office of Corporate Communications

Mechanicsburg, Pa. (NNS) Fourteen
afloat and four ashore messes have been
selected from U.S. Fleet Forces
Command and Commander, Naval
Installations Command, as finalists for
the 2010 Captain Edward F. Ney Memorial
Awards, which encourage and recognize culi-
nary excellence in Navy Food service programs.
NAS Pensacola is one of the finalists.

Gosport Staff Writer

Whether it's a health care question or a
legal question, military retirees and their
spouses should be able to get answers at
the 37th annual Gulf Coast Area Retired
Military Seminar Oct. 17 onboard Naval
Air Station Pensacola.
The event, sponsored by NASP's Fleet
and Family Support Center, will be held
from 9 a.m.-noon in the base theater,
Bldg. 633, just south of the chapel. D.J.
Kerr, director of the Retired Activities
Office at FFSC, will emcee the event that
often attracts people from out of state.
"Things have changed in a year," Kerr
said. So people are encouraged to come
for updates or just to see old friends. "It's
like a one-stop shopping center."
Retired Air Force Master Sgt. Carey
Dobbins of Pensacola has been attending
the seminar for the past several years with

"A team of food service experts perform a one-day
(Oct. 13) evaluation at the general mess. They arrive on
board around 6 a.m. and are on board until 5 p.m.
They evaluate the lunchtime meal using a pre-
established checklist. Most evaluations are
accomplished in port, but occasionally
due to operational commitments, our
evaluation teams must get underway with
the ship or submarine to complete the eval-
uation," said Naval Supply Systems Command's
(NAVSUP) Navy Food Service Director Cmdr. Tom

his wife, Olena. "We gain a little bit of
knowledge in addition to what we have
already gained," he said, adding, he
mainly goes for the updates. High on his
list is the latest information from Naval
Hospital Pensacola.
Last year the event attracted more than
400 people. Kerr is hoping for a similar
showing, but the attendance often
depends on what the retirement issues
are, he said. Both retired and soon-to-be
retired are encouraged to come.
Doors will open at 8:30 a.m., with the
event starting at 9 a.m. Dannyo Chow
from the Defense Finance and
Accounting Service (DFAS) will be the
guest speaker and will talk about issues
concerning retiree pay and survivor ben-
Typically, speakers like Chow will
also answer individual questions after
giving a

"There are more than 300 messes in the U.S. Navy.
Making it to the finals in Ney award selections is a big
accomplishment," said Ney Program Manager
Roxanne Hauman. "It means the 18 nominated galleys
have worked tirelessly to ensure all details of food
preparation were addressed and they represent the Navy
with utmost precision and efficiency. They are the best

honors and recognition that can be bestowed upon any

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus said Oct. 6 women soon will serve on submarines,
suggesting a reversal of the long-standing ban by the Navy.
Appearing on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," Mabus
signaled that the Navy is moving closer to allowing coed personnel on submarines.
"It will take a little while because you've got to interview people and you've got
to be nuclear trained," he said, referring to prerequisite steps before a Sailor is
assigned to a submarine.
Officials previously have cited a lack of privacy and the cost of reconfiguring

NASP Disability Employment Awareness Month observance

The Naval Education and Training Command
announces the annual Disability Employment
Awareness Month observance. This year's consolidat-
ed Pensacola Naval Air Station complex observance
will be held Oct. 22 at the National Naval Aviation
Museum from 10:30-11:30 a.m. The theme is
"Expectation + Opportunity = Full Participation."
The featured speaker will be Master Chief Petty
Officer James W. Wilson. Master Chief Wilson
entered the Navy in 1977. After two successful air-

crew tours he was selected to become an instructor at
the Navy's elite Survival, Evasion, Resistance and
Escape (S.E.R.E) school in Brunswick, Maine. Upon
his selection to master chief petty officer he trans-
ferred to Norfolk, Virginia as the Carrier Air Wing
Seventeen ordnance master chief. It was during this
tour aboard the USS Enterprise (CVN 65) that Master
Chief Wilson was severely injured leading to the loss
of his right leg below the knee.

Peterson has already
proved she can handle the
job, said Station Chief
Jim Bennett, her immedi-
ate supervisor. "Since day
one, she was a go-getter,
she knew her job and she
has been tested numerous
times," he said. "She def-
initely has the heart for
the job."
Recently she volun-
teered to help with a con-
trolled bum, a new skill
for her. "It's interesting to
learn the science behind
it," she said.
Peterson, 34, has expe-
rience as a fire inspector
at Naval Air Station
Oceania. She was a ship-
board firefighter in the
Navy and has 10 years of
civil service fire work.
"It is my career," she
said. She comes from a
military family, including
a father who was a career
So far, no problems.
"They are brothers, just
like my brothers up in
Little Creek," she said.
"Once you are on the job
and you prove you are
able to work side-by-side
with them, they accept
you pretty easily."
Johnson, 31, will be
settling down in one area
for the first time in years.
That's scarier than the
firefighting job, she said.
Johnson is originally
from Minnesota, but has
been firefighting over-
seas for most of the past
seven years. She has
lived in Iraq, Antarctica
and more recently

Prior to going over-
seas, she worked in
Minnesota as a firefight-
er. She brings about a
dozen years of experi-
ence to the job.
"I completely fell into
it," Johnson said of her
firefighting career.
She worked as a fire-
fighter in Chanhassen,
Minn., where her pay
was based on the number
of calls she worked. She
worked other jobs to
make ends meet. "That's
what I did for fun," she
said. "That's how it start-
Shaffer, 23, also grew
up in a military family
and moved to the area in
2004 with her family.
She now lives in
Navarre. Her interest in
becoming a firefighter
started with the Destin
Fire Control District
about two years ago.
Shaffer is working on
a degree in emergency
management and disas-
ter management, when
she's not riding her road
bike 32 miles along the
Shaffer said she want-
ed to be part of the mili-
tary system. "I just like
the structure," she said.
As the veteran of the
three, Peterson said she
is willing to be a mentor
if need be.
One of the most
important things she
has learned as a fire-
fighter is to be humble
and ask for help when
you need it. "It took me
a long time to learn that
one," she said. "It takes
a bigger person to ask
for help."

But Mabus is one of several top Navy officials recent-
ly to call for an end to the policy. The Navy secretary's
comments amplify his previous endorsement of ending
the ban.
"This is something the (chief of naval operations) and
I have been working on since I came into office," Mabus,
who was confirmed as Navy secretary in May, said last
week. "I believe women should have every opportunity
to serve at sea, and that includes aboard submarines."
NavyAdm. Gary Roughead, chief of naval operations,
acknowledged that special accommodations would be a
factor in the decision, but one that's not insurmountable.
"Having commanded a mixed-gender surface combat-
ant, I am very comfortable addressing integrating women
into the submarine force," he said in a statement last
month. "I am familiar with the issues as well as the value
of diverse crews."
Roughead said he has been personally engaged
through the years in the Navy's debate of the feasibility of
assigning women to submarines.

No one including men deserves to be abused

By T.D. Jackson
Special to American Forces
Press Service

BURY, Ind. Some
time ago a co-worker
of mine came to work
with what I thought
was a black eye.
I noticed it as I was
talking to her, and
when it registered, my
eyes sort of slid away
from her face and
began looking every-
where but at her.
I thought, "I am not
going there," and I
went on with my day
without giving it too
much thought.
Because I wasn't
sure, I didn't feel the
need to say something,

but the sad part is that
if it had been a more
obvious black eye, I
know I wouldn't have
said a thing; I would
have been too scared.
Just as I learned in
the suicide prevention
training we've had
here over the past few
months, I should have
asked those painful
but caring questions:
"Are you OK?" And in
this case, "Did some-
body hit you?"
October is National
Domestic Violence
Awareness Month.
One in every four
women will experi-
ence domestic vio-
lence in her lifetime,
and women 20 to 24

are at the greatest risk.
Here's one you
probably knew: Most
cases of domestic vio-
lence are never report-
ed to the police.
And one to blow
your mind: Men are
victims, too.
More than 834,000
men report being
domestically assaulted
People who are
abused often feel as
though no one will
believe them, or they
think they have
nowhere to go for
At Camp Atterbury
or at any other military
installation, God
knows (pun intended)

you can call the chap-
lain at any time.
Behavioral Health,
Even though this
was some time ago,
every now and then I
still wonder, "What if
somebody did hit her?
What if she needed to
talk, but everyone -
for different reasons
- was afraid to talk
about it?"
As a leader, I failed
her, but this anecdote
is my grasp at redemp-
My former co-work-
er probably never will
set her sights on this
article, but if someone
did put hands on her, I
would tell her I'm

sorry sorry it hap-
pened to her, and sorry
I was a chicken.
If I had weighed the
cost of embarrassment
against the cost of car-
ing, I wouldn't be
writing this now.
I'm hoping maybe
she didn't have a black
She may have as
I have on many occa-
sions caught a pitch
with her face during
softball practice.
She may have as
I have on many occa-
sions stood a little
too close to the top
cabinet door as it
swung open.
For all I know, she
could have gotten

popped by a feisty
rugrat. I don't know,
and I never will.
But what I do know
is that although I can-
not concern myself
with every detail of a
person's life, I can be
aware of changes in
behavior, moods and
certainly appearance.
I was in a leadership
position and along
with that title comes
It is my responsibil-
ity to make sure my
people are OK at work
and at home.
The mark of a good
leader is the ability to
listen, and, my friend,
although I am late, I
am all ears.

Domestic Abuse Prevention Month: choose to act to prevent

By Mary Grimes
Army Wounded Warrior Program

Word on the street is that the U.S.
military has announced October
2009 as "Domestic Abuse
Prevention Month."
I like that about the military. In
my view, it is one of the few great
institutions in our country that does-
n't avoid pointing out that we not
only have issues worthy of our care
and attention, but repeatedly
reminds us that we can as individu-
als and as a team, do something
about them.
Since entering the military in the
early 1970s, I can't remember a time
when regardless of my duty station,
the military community wasn't
reminded through command infor-

mation channels and or public
affairs initiatives of its more or less
zero tolerance in matters pertaining
to domestic abuse and/or violence.
With more than 30 years of gov-
ernment service to my journey, I'd
have to say that the tireless efforts
made by the armed forces toward
keeping information of such magni-
tude on the front burner, most cer-
tainly is an effort worthy of
While the topic of domestic abuse
is not something any of us finds
pleasant, it is unfortunately a truth
that lies among us.
The reasons for its existence are
about as diverse as the Sailors,
Marines, Airmen, Soldiers, veterans
and family members who experience
or have experienced the painful grip

of its embrace.
Through all ranks, the harsh reali-
ty is that domestic abuse all too
often manages to rear its ugly head
in environments that we'd like to
believe are exempt or are above
The military realizes this, and I
believe has and continues to do
everything it can to rid its ranks and
communities of abuse of any form.
Are we our brother's keeper?
Each of us must commit ourselves to
taking a step forward in the push to
eradicate domestic abuse.
Regardless of its form whether
it be physical, sexual, psychological
or verbal, domestic abuse prevention
begins with a commitment to stop it
in its tracks.
I will go so far as to say that we

all can do a little bit better when we
know or even sense that another is in
harm's way.
Pick up the phone. Seek the assis-
tance of authorities. Churches,
teachers, unit commanders, neigh-
bors and trusted friends are available
to help, and that help comes without
judgment or criticism.
The October 2009 theme for
Domestic Abuse Prevention
Awareness Month is "Make the
Right Choice! Act to Prevent
Domestic Abuse!" That is a battle

NASP auxiliary police make the grade

By Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer

Sixteen new auxiliary police graduat-
ed Oct. 9 from the Security Reaction
Force basic course at Naval Air Station
Pensacola adding to the base's growing
security force.
"This is a good class," said Officer
Matthew Capp, as he watched the latest
students go through the "Rambo Day"
activities prior to graduating.
Capp is one of four training supervi-
sors TRASUPs authorized to
teach the course.
The latest graduates are all enlisted
coming from different commands at
NASP, including the Naval Air
Technical Training Center and Corry
Although not in this group, earlier
graduates included women and
While they are still stationed at NASP
they will help at various entry control
points (ECP) and with random anti-ter-
rorism measures (RAM). They will also
be required to train once monthly with
the regular security force.
Typically there will be two auxiliary
police officers on watch in one day.
By the time they arrive at Rambo Day,
they have already been pepper sprayed
(oleoresin capsicum) that was in
Week 1 of the three-week course. And
they have spent almost a whole week on
the range shooting the M-9 pistol, the
shotgun and the M-16 rifle.
"So they get to do a lot of training,"
Capp said.
It's also good for their military
"These guys are going to be ahead of
the game from everybody else when
they transfer to their next duty station,"
Capp said. "They can put these qualifi-
cations on their evaluations."
And if they go where they are

required to have been certified with pep-
per spray (OC), they can show they have
already been through that.
"They don't have to go through it
again," he said. For Level 2, the OC is
sprayed on a rag and held to their fore-
head for a couple of seconds. "It's not
nearly as bad as Level 1," he said.
Their range skills qualify them for
additional ribbons and medals for the
pistol and rifle. From this group, five
have already qualified as experts with
the rifle and 13 qualified as experts with
the pistol.
The training is similar to police train-
ing in the early stages.
NASP DoN police officers have to go
through a 12-week field training officer
course that includes report writing, state
and federal law and the UCMJ, learning
to operate an emergency vehicle, run-
ning driver's licenses and registration
checks, learning basic life support and
going through all the weapons courses
NASP typically has two Security
Reaction classes per year in the
March/April time frame and the
September/October time frame.
"Sometimes it's really cool and some-
times it's not," Capp said. On Oct. 8 it
was not.
Right now there are about 35 auxil-
iary security force members, with the
new 16 that will add about 50 percent
more. But of that class, 10 or so are
ready to transfer.
Capp said the security department
would like to offer the class quarterly.
"The commands are short as it is and
they have to give up bodies for three
weeks," he said.

force coordinator) at the NASP Police

Third in a series of fire prevention articles during October National Fire Prevention Month

Stay 'Fire Smart' don't let a home fire happen to you

From Craig Lewis
Fire Prevention Chief, Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast

Every day, Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast

receives a report from the U.S. Fire Administration

on the previous day's civilian fire fatalities. Rarely is

there a day with no deaths due to fire.

Most of the time the report identifies
the number of victims, their ages, proba-
ble cause, and (if in a home) whether or
not there were working smoke detectors.
We have been informed of five or more
deaths in a single fire, with ages ranging
from infants to age 91, with causes from
smoking, cooking, electrical, gas or elec-
tric space heaters and various other caus-
During the week of Oct. 4-10 we asked
you to "Stay Fire Smart, Don't Get
Burned" and we at Fire & Emergency
Services Gulf Coast hope the message is
practiced throughout the whole year, and
not just for a week or so.
Please slow down, take some time this

weekend, and look around your house to
see what fire safety hazards you have,
and please don't assume you don't have
any hazards because we all do.
First, check your smoke detector if
you don't have one get one for each level
of the home, the hallways outside of bed-
rooms, and inside the bedrooms. Test
them monthly, replace the batteries every
six months when the time changes. Look
around your home for electrical hazards
such as unsafe wiring or overloaded cir-
cuits, improper storage practices, candle
placement, consider having fireplaces
and furnaces inspected and if you have
gas appliances or other carbon monoxide
producing devices have a carbon monox-

Home fires, such as the one that destroyed this kitchen, only take a careless
moment to start. Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast urges homeowners to take
the lessons of fire prevention to heart throughout the year, not just during National
Fire Prevention Month (October).

These are just a few of many items you
need be on the lookout for concerning fire
safety, if you have questions please call us

Managing the

energy program

at NAS Pensacola
From Sue Brink
NAVFAC Southeast Public Affairs Officer

Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) is celebrating
energy awareness during the month of October and
even though they are always working toward the presi-
dent's goal of energy independence, this celebration
provides the opportunity to further educate the public.
"There are several regulations, policies and guidance
that the Navy follows to promote energy efficiency and
conservation," said Lt. Cmdr. Oscar Bemal, production

officer of Public Works Department Pensacola.
The Energy Policy Act (EPACT) of 2005 and
Executive Order 13423 were the first two governing
documents that held government agencies accountable
to conserve energy through quantifiable milestones.
Further guidance and mandates, both at the federal and
regional level have assisted installations in developing
long term goals by implementing energy-saving
"Our resource efficiency manager (REM) is vital
with ensuring a successful program," said Bemal.
"They (REMs) are the installation's energy expert."
REMs focus on reducing the cost of energy, water,
fuel, waste disposal and pollution prevention through
improved practices, equipment modifications and con-
sumer awareness. So where does he or she start? Each
installation is required to audit all the buildings when

energy. Through these audits, projects are developed
that target energy-consuming systems to make them
more efficient.
One the most effective methods used by NASP's
Public Works Department is the Utility Energy Savings
Contract (UESC). This program is a partnership with
local utility companies that allows them to finance the
installation energy-saving projects. In return, the
expected dollar savings generated from these projects is
paid to the utility company eliminating up-front
costs. This win-win situation reduces energy consump-
tion while the utility company is provided the dollar
savings (as if the project never happened) to repay the
loan within 15 years.
The next article in Gosport will focus on key energy
projects at NASP

Navy names ship after civil

rights activist Medgar Evers

From Chief of Naval Personnel Public

Oct. 1, as designated in NAVADMIN
284/09, the logistics specialist (LS) rating
was established, encompassing more than
11,000 postal clerks (PC) and storekeepers
(SK), who merged into the single designa-
The merger comprises all active-duty
Sailors and Reserve component E-6 and
above, formerly designated as SK and PC,
and will include Reserve component E-l
to E-5 beginning Apr. 1, 2010, according
to the message.
"As an element of the Navy's total force
strategy, this merger will capitalize on the
knowledge, skills and abilities found in the

two ratings and apply them toward a uni-
fied mission," said Vice Adm. Mark
Ferguson, chief of naval personnel.
"Merging postal clerks and storekeep-
ers together brings nearly 100 years of
logistical experience to the logistics spe-
cialist rating."
In addition to enhancing mission
accomplishment, the merger lends to
steadier career progression for Sailors by
aligning the global demand and supply for
logistical talent.
Logistics specialists will be identified
by the crossed keys rating badge, formally
the symbol of the storekeeper rating. The
conversion of rating badges must be com-
pleted by Oct. 1, 2011.

Thousands line the levees to salute, bid farewell to Pre-Commissioning Unit New York

By MC1 Shawn D. Graham
Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New
Orleans Public Affairs

Thousands of residents from
around the New Orleans area
began lining up along the banks
of the Mississippi River before
daybreak to bid the Pre-
Commissioning Unit New York
farewell as it departed from the
Northrop Grumman
Shipbuilding inAvondale Oct. 13.
Lola Lass, president of The
Greater New Orleans Executives
Association (GNOEA), said her
group suggested the send-off cel-
ebration to allow the community

one final opportunity to salute
the ship, its crew and the men
and women who spent more
than five years building it.
"The "Line the Levees" event
showcased the hard work, love
and dedication that went into
building this ship," said Lass.
"It allows citizens of New
Orleans to pay homage to the
victims, families and first
responders of 9/11."
The 684-foot amphibious
transport dock ship contains
about 7.5 tons of steel from the
World Trade Center, felled dur-
ing the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist
It received two 21-gun salutes,

as it passed Naval Air Station
Joint Reserve Base New Orleans
(NAS JRB) and Naval Support
Activity New Orleans (NSA).
Capt. Bill Snyder, Naval Air
Station Joint Reserve Base New
Orleans (NAS JRB) command-
ing officer, said that the ship's
transit was symbolic.
"rm thrilled to have witnessed
history," said Snyder. "There has
been overwhelming support for
the U.S. Navy in this area. I'm
thrilled that so many people took
time out of their days to partici-
pate in this event."
Snyder also thanked parish
leaders and volunteers who par-
ticipated in the event, citing the

long hours spent preparing for
the ship's transit down the river.
"Plaquemines Parish officials
have been dynamic in their sup-
port," said Snyder. "Granting us
access to the site and the security
support from their sheriffs
department was key in preparing
for such a large event."
Master-at-Arms 1st Class
(SW) Derrick Tyler, assigned to
NAS JRB's security department,
said he was impressed by the
immense turnout and support
throughout the area.
"When you see hundreds of
everyday citizens waving flags
and holding up signs, it can be
very powerful," said Tyler.

"You are used to that seeing
ships return or go on a deploy-
ment, but when I saw this one
leaving it felt different. America
wants to this ship to do amazing
New York will be commis-
sioned Nov. 7 in New York.

October is

Breast Cancer Awareness


From www.nbcam.org

Breast cancer is the most
common cancer in women

in the United States, aside

from skin cancer. According to the

American Cancer Society (ACS), an

estimated 192,370 new cases of inva-

sive breast cancer are expected to be

diagnosed among women in the

United States this year.

An estimated 40,170 women are expected to die
from the disease in 2009 alone. Today, there are
about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in
the United States.
If you're worried about developing breast cancer,
or if you know someone who has been diagnosed
with the disease, one way to deal with your concerns
is to get as much information as possible.
Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that grows in
one or both of the breasts. Breast cancer usually
develops in the ducts or lobules, also known as the
milk-producing areas of the breast.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of can-
cer death in women (after lung cancer). Although
African-American women have a slightly lower
incidence of breast cancer after age 40 than cau-
casian women, they have a slightly higher incidence
rate of breast cancer before age 40. However,
African-American women are more likely to die
from breast cancer at every age. Breast cancer is
much less common in males; by comparison, the
disease is about 100 times more common among
women. According to the American Cancer Society,
an estimated 1,910 new cases of invasive breast can-
cer are expected to be diagnosed among men in the
United States in 2009.
Types of breast cancer
There are several different types of breast cancer
that can be divided into two main categories non-
invasive cancers and invasive cancers. Noninvasive
cancer may also be called "carcinoma in situ."
Noninvasive breast cancers are confined to the ducts
or lobules and they do not spread to surrounding tis-
sues. The two types of noninvasive breast cancers
are ductal carcinoma in situ (referred to as DCIS)
and lobular carcinoma in situ (referred to as LCIS).
It is known that hormones in a woman's body,
such as estrogen and progesterone, can play a role in
the development of breast cancer. In breast cancer,
estrogen causes a doubling of cancer cells every 36
hours. The growing tumor needs to increase its
blood supply to provide food and oxygen; proges-
terone seems to cause stromal cells.
Non-invasive breast cancer: The majority of non-
invasive breast cancers are DCIS. In DCIS, the can-
cer cells are found only in the milk duct of the
breast. If DCIS is not treated, it may progress to
invasive cancer.
In LCIS, the abnormal cells are found only in the
lobules of the breast. Unlike DCIS, LCIS is not con-

sidered to be a cancer. It is more like a warning sign
of increased risk of developing an invasive breast
cancer in the same or opposite breast. While LCIS is
a risk factor for invasive cancer, it doesn't actually
develop into invasive breast cancer in many women.
Invasive breast cancer. Invasive or infiltrating
breast cancers penetrate through normal breast tis-
sue (such as the ducts and lobules) and invade sur-
rounding areas. They are more serious than noninva-
sive cancers because they can spread to other parts
of the body, such as the bones, liver, lungs, and
There are several kinds of invasive breast cancers.
The most common type is invasive ductal carcino-
ma, which appears in the ducts and accounts for
about 80 percent of all breast cancer cases. There are
differences in the various types of invasive breast
cancer, but the treatment options are similar for all
of them.
Not all breast cancers are alike
Not all breast cancers are alike there are differ-
ent stages of breast cancer based on the size of the
tumor and whether the cancer has spread. For doctor
and patient, knowing the stage of breast cancer is the
most important factor in choosing among treatment
options. Doctors use a physical exam, biopsy, and
other tests to determine breast cancer stage.
Stages of breast cancer
The most common system used to describe the
stages of breast cancer is the AJCC/TNM (American
Joint Committee on Cancer/Tumor-Nodes-
Metastases) system. This system takes into account
the tumor size and spread, whether the cancer has
spread to lymph nodes, and whether it has spread to
distant organs (metastasis).
All of this information is then combined in a
process called stage grouping. The stage is
expressed as a Roman numeral. After stage 0 (carci-
noma in situ), the other stages are I through IV (1-

4). Some of the stages are further sub-divided using
the letters A, B, and C. In general, the lower the
number, the less the cancer has spread. A higher
number, such as stage IV (4), means a more
advanced cancer.
These are the stages of breast cancer:
Stage 0 Stage 0 is carcinoma in situ, early
stage cancer that is confined to the ducts or the lob-
ules, depending on where it started. It has not gone
into the tissues in the breast nor spread to other
organs in the body.
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS): This is the most
common type of noninvasive breast cancer, when
abnormal cells are in the lining of a duct. DCIS is
also called intraductal carcinoma. DCIS sometimes
becomes invasive cancer if not treated.
Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS): This condition
begins in the milk-making glands but does not go
through the wall of the lobules. LCIS seldom
becomes invasive cancer; however, having LCIS in
one breast increases the risk of cancer for both
Stage I Stage I is an early stage of invasive
breast cancer. In Stage I, cancer cells have not
spread beyond the breast and the tumor is no more
than two centimeters (three-quarters of an inch)
Stage II- Stage II is one of the following:
The tumor in the breast is no more than two cen-
timeters (three-quarters of an inch) across. The can-
cer has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm.
The tumor is between two and five centimeters
(three-quarters of an inch to two inches). The cancer
may have spread to the lymph nodes under the arm.
The tumor is larger than five centimeters (two
inches). The cancer has not spread to the lymph
nodes under the arm.
Stage III Stage III may be a large tumor, but
the cancer has not spread beyond the breast and
nearby lymph nodes. It is locally advanced cancer.
Stage IIIA Stage IIIA is one of the following:
The tumor in the breast is smaller than five cen-
timeters (two inches). The cancer has spread to
underarm lymph nodes that are attached to each
other or to other structures.
The tumor is more than five centimeters across.
The cancer has spread to the underarm lymph nodes.
Stage IIB Stage IIIB is one of the following:
The tumor has grown into the chest wall or the
skin of the breast.
The cancer has spread to lymph nodes behind the
Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare type of Stage
IIIB breast cancer. The breast looks red and swollen
because cancer cells block the lymph vessels in the
skin of the breast.
Stage IIIC Stage IIIC is a tumor of any size. It
has spread in one of the following ways:
The cancer has spread to the lymph nodes behind
the breastbone and under the arm.
The cancer has spread to the lymph nodes under
or above the collarbone.
Stage IV Stage IV is distant metastatic cancer.
The cancer has spread to other parts of the body.
Recurrent cancer Recurrent cancer is cancer
that has come back (recurred) after a period of time
when it could not be detected. It may recur locally in
the breast or chest wall as another primary cancer, or
it may recur in any other part of the body, such as
the bone, liver, or lungs, which is generally referred
to as metastatic cancer.

Marine course teaches to L.E.A.D. from the front

By Curtis Prentice and 2nd Lt. Kelsey Lourie

As paintballs zip past overhead, new

corpsman and junior enlisted Marines

are taught the basics of how to train

together and apply their knowledge of combat tac-

tics while gaining an early understanding of what

the Navy/Marine Corps team is all about.

This is all part of a real-
istic field exercise that cul-
minates the MATSG-21
four week Leadership,
Education and
Development (LEAD)
course. LEAD provides
relevant training to junior
servicemembers, exploit-
ing every opportunity to
make Marines better pre-
pared for combat as the
Marine Corps operational
environment evolves.
At NAS Pensacola,
Marines conduct entry-
level training for 79 avia-
tion primary warfare spe-
cialties with an annual
throughput of more than
5,000 enlisted Marines.
The current fight requires
Marines to be prepared
both mentally and physi-
cally for operations outside
their military occupational
specialty. In light of this,
nearly every enlisted
Marine awaiting training
gets a chance to take the
LEAD course where class
sizes range from 40-100

"LEAD is a leadership
tool and excellent PME
(Professional Military
Education) for E-ls to E-
3s," said Corporal David
Cole, LEAD non-commis-
sioned officer in charge
(OIC). 2nd Lt. Shane
Vigil, LEAD OIC, agreed:
"The LEAD program is a
great way for junior
Marines straight from
Marine Combat Training
to develop their leadership
and communication
Lieutenants who are
awaiting flight training
serve as LEAD staff and
instructors while NCOs
mentor the students. For
2nd Lt. Greg Czyzewski,
LEAD executive officer,
the best part is "knowing
that I've positively impact-
ed junior enlisted Marines
so that they can better
themselves and be suc-
cessful." The lieutenants,
all recent graduates of The
Basic School, bring a

depth oftheoretical knowl-
edge which is comple-
mented by the NCOs' bat-
tlefield experiences.
Developing the
Marines' character attrib-
utes and mental toughness
begins in the classroom,
utilizing Marine Corps
Institute (MCI) classes
such as Math for Marines,
Terrorism Awareness and
Personal Financial
Management. Fulfilling
these PME requirements
early in a career prevents
delays in promotion to E-4
of otherwise qualified
Marines. Current opera-
tional tempo has precluded
many Marines from suc-
cessfully completing their
MCI classes in a timely
fashion; LEAD counters
this problem.
Instruction in these
courses also addresses cur-
rent issues and how they
affect Marines' combat
readiness. "We are teach-
ing these young warriors
to think for themselves,"

HM2 Jason Hartop and 2nd Lt. Ryan Casey observe as two LEAD students attend to
a third Marine's "injuries" while a fourth pulls security. Photo by 2nd Lt. Kelsey Lourie

1st Lt. Benny Kandhiraj
explained as he prepared a
class. "Counter-terrorism
operations are dynamic;
the Marines' ability to
quickly adapt to this ever
changing situation is what
will make them and the
Corps successful."
Combat tactics taught
progress from fire team
(four Marines) to squad
level (13 Marines), and at
the conclusion of the
course, graduates are able
to give, receive and exe-
cute combat orders. Also,
experienced corpsmen
teach advanced first aid
and field triage in order to
qualify the Marines as
combat life savers.
Martial arts instruction
develops the Marines'

physical readiness as it
builds confidence and pro-
vides for advancement to
the next skill level.
Students are also put
through a series of daily
physical training including
MATSG-21's Combat
Conditioning Course: an
obstacle course, a 15-sta-
tion circuit course and
beach/trail runs.
The results of LEAD
are significant. "In LEAD
I had a chance to actually
lead (fellow) Marines
instead of how it was at
boot camp where only
some Marines got to lead,"
said Lance Cpl. Chris
Britton, now a mentor,
about his time in the pro-
gram. As Marines engage
in the challenging training

provided, their confidence
and camaraderie is boost-
ed and there is a decrease
in conduct violations, both
on and off base. When the
Marine goes to their first
unit, commanders receive
Marines that already pos-
sess some tactical profi-
ciency, creating a positive
impact on the unit's train-
ing cycle: at least 90 hours
per Marine can now be
used for alternate training.
LEAD is important to
the junior officers
involved as well. "It is
great working with the
junior marines at this early
stage, Marines who may
one day be my crew
chiefs, in charge of keep-
ing our aircraft in the sky,"
said 2nd Lt. Vigil.

Volunteering at schools is nothing
new for military members at Naval Air
Station Whiting Field, but after the
Helicopter Training Squadron Eight/
Hobbs Middle School partnership
lapsed for several years, it was impor-
tant to re-invigorate the program. With
that in mind, Hobbs' principal, Stephen
Shell and members from the aircraft
squadron agreed to a flagship contract
focused on helping the kids.
"I am very excited about the process
we are undertaking today," Shell said
before signing the agreement. "We are
very connected to the military here. It is
a big part of Hobbs Middle School and
we are excited by a renewal of this part-
The agreement was signed by Shell,
HT-8 Commanding Officer Cmdr.
Michael Fisher, and the squadron's

volunteer coordinator Lt. Stephen
Skinner. It delineates the volunteer
needs of the school and areas where
HT-8 can help promote school goals.
Planned commitments include helping
with: individual and classroom tutors,
student mentors, school beautification
projects, field trips, student athletic fit-
ness, substance abuse prevention pro-
grams and more.
The agreement is a one-year partner-
ship, but with an intention to renew it
annually. The school and the squadron
have actually had agreements dating
back 10 or 15 years according to Shell,
but following Hurricane Ivan, other pri-
orities took precedence and the partner-
ship faded.
Fisher is looking forward to getting
back on track.
"I want us to be a positive influence
on you," he said to the 30 or so students
in attendance. "Thank you for giving us
the opportunity to reengage in this
important partnership."
