CFC surpasses


By Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer

The 2009 EscaRosa
Combined Federal Campaign
(CFC) has exceeded all expecta-
tions. And money is still coming
More than $806,000 had been
collected as of Nov. 18, about 8
percent higher than last year.
EscaRosa CFC Director Ron
Denson hopes to pass 10 percent
this year.
'That's huge considering the
economic concerns," Denson
said. "We just did not anticipate
seeing such an increase."
The drive officially ended Oct.
30. "Even though we have pretty
much stopped the workplace
campaign, it's still not too late to
make a donation," Denson said,
adding pledge cards will be
accepted until Dec. 15.
Denson was actually bracing
for less this year and a set a con-
servative goal of $728,000, less
than the $741,000 raised last year.
But ultimately the economy

didn't make a difference. "That
was the biggest surprise for all of
us," Denson said.
Prior campaigns have exceed-
ed more than $1 million. But
those were at a time when there
were more federal employees in
the area. The average contribution
per donor is up from roughly
$120 to $170-plus annually.
Denson attributes the cam-
paign's success to the efforts the
commands have given to the
campaign. "The chairs have real-
ly been passionate about the cam-
paign this year," he said.
CFC representatives did more
guest speaking this year than the
past five years combined in an
effort to help people understand
the program and who is benefit-
ing. "We did try and bring more
of the touchy feely aspects so
people understood it's not just a
handout, it's a program that is
really impacting peoples' lives,"
he said.
The CFC is not a non-profit,
but a federal program with the
purpose of implementing a once-

a-year drive for the federal
employees. It's the largest payroll
deductible campaign for federal
workers in the area. Last year
there were 292 CFC campaigns
nationwide that raised $275 mil-

lion. receive the funding. The remain-

NASP's chaplains, USO

plan Thanksgiving activities

By Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer

Thanksgiving week activities at Naval
Air Station Pensacola include an ecu-
menical service and meal on Nov. 23
organized by the chaplains on base and a
Thanksgiving feast on Nov. 26 at the
USO for service members who are not
able to make it home for the holiday.
The church service at the Naval
Aviation Memorial Chapel will start at 6
p.m., with refreshments, soup and salad
served at the J.B. McKamey Center at 7
p.m. People can also bring other food if
they wish, said Lt. Randy Ekstrom, who
along with Father Jack Gray are helping
to organize the event.
The service will include nine chaplains
from the various commands on base
offering prayers, with Capt. David
Girardin, the chaplain at the Naval
Education and Training Command, serv-
ing as the main speaker. For information,
contact Chaplain Ekstrom at 452-2341,
ext. 4.
It was such a success last year that offi-
cials and volunteers at the USO at NASP
plan to do it again serve a traditional
dinner on Thanksgiving Day.
And the center will remain open
throughout the Thanksgiving weekend

with food and plenty of activities. "That's
what the USO is all about," said local
USO Director Heidi Blair.
Last year the USO planned to serve
450 military members and more than 700
showed up. "This year we are planning
on 1,000 and we'll probably have more
than that," Blair said.
Blair said in talking to Sailors and

have normal hours on the weekend
after Thanksgiving.
The NEX will go to holiday hours

A 13-year-old's thoughts on an unknown Soldier

Dear Editor:

Mary Catherine Smith is 13
years old and in the eighth grade

in Mobile, Ala.

form of a letter to the poem's

Dear Mr. Dunn:

I have read your
poem "The Unknown
Soldier." I found it to
be very inspiring in so
many ways.
It speaks for the
men and women who
wore the uniform and
served their country.
The Tomb of the
Unknown Soldier is a
great reminder of how
great our country is.
This poem inspired
me because the Soldier
gave his life to protect
his land.
He fought for his
country and for his
people. It made me feel
thankful and sad.
I felt thankful
because I know there
are many people dying
and fighting for my
country. Also, I felt sad
because he cared so

I had not seen Mary Catherine's
letter of response until I stumbled
across it while cleaning out her
book bag in preparation for the
new school year.
I was amazed by what I read. It
was remarkable to read how the
words of one man, the efforts of
many and the privilege of our
freedom can affect a 13-year-old
girl without a care in the world.
It brought tears to my eyes, and
my heart filled with feelings of
both happiness and sadness.

The Unknown Soldier
By J.P. Dunn

Although unknown he was not alone,
The night he passed away;
A mother touched his heart and lips
While his guardian angel led his soul

To the far off better land.
Across the trackless plains
When all will meet again those
Who are absent from home today

He gave his live for Democracy
To cement the hearts of men,
That all alike might share
Full freedom in every land

He fought beneath the stars and stripes
For the country he loved so well;
In the Flanders Fields in France
Our gallant hero fell

As a token of true friendship
We beautify his grave
In the cemetery at Arlington
Where the flowers gently wave;
We promise as we kneel beside him

New bill should help military spouses with relocation bureaucracy

Story, photo
by Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer

President Barack Obama recently signed the
Military Spouse Residency Relief Act that is intended
to ease the bureaucracy that military spouses endure
with relocations.
The bill allows military spouses who relocate out of
a state with their service members on military orders to
have the option to claim the same state of domicile as
their active-duty spouses, regardless of where they are
In the past, each time a military family moved to a
different state, the spouse was subject to unnecessary
and often expensive changes, proponents of the bill
Relocation and deployment specialists at Naval Air
Station Pensacola are waiting to get the details of the
bill that was signed on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
"It gives them more options with regard to paying
taxes and getting tags," said Pam Banks, a relocation
and deployment specialist at NASP.
The bill will amend the Service Members Civil
Relief Act that, among other things, allows service
members to use the same driver's licenses, voting
cards and state tax procedures when they relocate.
Now those same rights will apply to spouses who
often had to shift through mounds of paperwork to
determine different state tax procedures and incur

Pam Banks, relocation and deployment specialist
and Shelia Q. McNeely, administrative assistant, go
over the relocation package that military families
receive and talk about new legislation for family
expensive changes every time they relocated.
Residents of Florida, for example, do not have a
state income tax. However, when a couple relocates to
a state with state income tax, often there are questions
about how the tax should be handled. The bill gives
couples the option on where they want to declare resi-
Other changes like having to get a new driver's
license within 30 days of locating in some states would
also be an option for spouses.
"I'm still researching the extent of the act," Banks

said, adding details of the new legislation should be
arriving at FFSC shortly. "It will save a lot of hassle."
Kathy Sims, a relocation and deployment specialist
at NASP, said this is another example of how much
has improved for military families in the past decade.
"There are more things available than they have ever
had in the U.S. military," she said.
In addition to helping families relocate, there are
services that help spouses with job leads at their new
location, including help with resume writing.
Sims said it makes her feel proud when she sees leg-
islation that helps military members and their families.
Word of the new legislation pleased Families United
for Our Troops and Their Mission, the nation's largest
military family organization.
"By signing the Military Spouse Residency Relief
Act, the president is easing the cumbersome bureau-
cratic hurdles that military spouses are forced to endure
with every relocation," the organization said.
"Military spouses and their families serve and sacri-
fice with their troops every day," officials with
Families United said.
"(We) will continue working to ensure that their sac-
rifice for this country is made as easy as possible and
that the families that support our men and women in
uniform are taken care of while their loved ones serve
this nation."
The organization went on to say "this legislation
represents a significant step forward for military fami-
lies, and Families United applauds President Obama
for signing it into law.

Federal officials pledge support for hiring veterans under Obama directive

By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON Senior federal
officials recently pledged their support of
President Barack Obama's directive to
increase the hiring of military veterans.
Obama signed the executive order Nov.
9 that calls on each federal agency to
establish a veterans' employment pro-
gram office designed to help former serv-
ice members get through the maze of
paperwork as they apply for federal posi-
tions. It also mandates that agencies train
personnel specialists on veteran employ-
ment policies.
The order also directs federal agencies
to work with the departments of Defense
and Veterans Affairs to develop and apply
technologies designed to help disabled
Also recently Secretary of Labor Hilda
L. Solis appeared at a U.S. Chamber of
Commerce event where she told civilian
employers they should consider military
veterans as employees of choice.
Solis said establishing a veterans' pro-
gram office within most federal agencies
is part of a program designed to transform
the federal government into the model
employer of America's veterans.
America owes a great debt to its mili-
tary veterans, Veterans Affairs Deputy
Secretary W. Scott Gould said at the press
"We can reach out to them with some-
thing as simple, as pragmatic, as practical
as a job; a good job in government,"
Gould said.
And, veterans' hard-won experience,
he said, constitutes "an asset we can now

bring into government."
It is imperative, Gould said, that gov-
ernment agencies assist veterans to
become aware of government jobs, help
veterans translate their military skills into
civilian parlance, and to help them adjust
to their new civilian environment.
Office of Personnel Management
Director John Berry told reporters that the
president directed him "to do right by our
America's veterans "are valued, they
are experienced, and they are trained,"
Berry said. Consequently, he said, it
would be foolish not to provide veterans
with more opportunities to continue to
serve in the federal workforce after mili-
tary service.
"And so, we want to make sure that
they know they are welcome and we will
have a job for them," Berry said. "We will
find one that matches their skills, their
passions and their interests and their abili-
After finding the rightjob, he said, each
veteran will be mentored to help them
adapt and transition into the civilian work
culture so that they can succeed.
The governmentwide Council on
Veterans' Employment, chaired by Solis
and Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric
Shinseki, will play a key role in the veter-
ans hiring program, Berry said.
Solis' and Shinseki's influence, vision
and leadership will make the program a
success, Berry said. OPM plans to release
a list of the numbers of veterans working
at federal agencies.
"And our goal is to have every one of
those numbers increase, so that those per-
centages go up," Berry said.

The United States "arguably has the
best-trained, best-equipped and best-led
military force the world has ever seen,"
said Gail McGinn, acting undersecretary
of defense for personnel and readiness.
The president's veterans employment
initiative "will showcase the leadership
and technical skills our military members
have to offer," McGinn said, and "will
bring back that wonderful talent into our
civilian workforce."
The Defense Department already is the
largest federal employer of military veter-
ans, McGinn noted. Today, about 342,000
defense civilians are veterans, she said,
making up about 45 percent of the depart-
ment's civilian workforce.
"I work side by side with veterans
every day," McGinn said. The skills veter-
ans learned in the service, she said, "serve
them very, very well working within the
Department of Defense."
The department has two Web sites that
provide employment information for vet-
erans, as well as a toll-free phone number
where they can talk to career advisors, she
The department, McGinn said, also
provides transition programs for separat-
ing military members that feature resume
writing, skills assessments, interview-
process training, and jobs-search tech-
"We also provide special help to our
wounded, ill and injured service members
whose careers have been cut short due to
the injuries received in Iraq or
Afghanistan," she said, through the
"Hiring Heroes" career fairs.
Thirty one of these career fairs, she
said, have been run across the United

States since 2005.
The largest of the fairs, conducted in
June at Walter Reed Army Medical
Center here, attracted more than 570 job
seekers, McGinn said.
The career fairs, she said, provide serv-
ice members, many of whom still are
recovering from wounds, the opportunity
to visit with potential employers, get on-
the-spot interviews, and often, job offers.
"At DoD, we are extremely proud of
our service members and fully aware of
the value that they bring to the federal
government," McGinn said.
The interagency process launched by
Obama's executive order "will clear a
pathway for more federal jobs for our
service members," McGinn said, and
"will allow them to look throughout the
federal government to find the right fit and
the best federal job for them."
The Department of Homeland
Security's mission of securing the home-
land requires dedicated people "willing to
do whatever it really takes to get the job
done," said JeffNeal, DHS's chief human
capital officer.
Military veterans, Neal said, have "all
the types of qualifications that we are
looking for in DHS, and they have proven
time and time again, when their country
has called on them, they are ready to
Neal said his agency plans to employ
50,000 military veterans by 2012.
"We want to show the veterans of
America that DHS is one of the places
where you are welcome, where you are
valued, where you can build a second
career and continue your service to
America," he said.

November is American Diabetes Month

New cases of diabetes linked to rising obesity rates

From Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney

failure, blindness and amputations, and

a major cause of heart disease and

stroke. Nearly 24 million Americans have diabetes,

and about 6 million of them are unaware of their

disease. With obesity on the rise, millions more are

at risk of developing diabetes.

Every 24 hours more than
4,000 adults are diagnosed with
diabetes and approximately 200
people die from diabetes.
Diabetes is a major cause of
heart disease and stroke and a
leading cause of leg and foot
amputations unrelated to injury,
kidney failure, and new cases of
blindness in adults. However,
people with diabetes can lower
their risk of complications by
following important steps to
control the disease:
Talk to your healthcare
provider about how to manage
your blood glucose (A1C),
blood pressure, and cholesterol.
Get both the seasonal and
H1N1 flu vaccines as soon as
they are available. For those
with diabetes, it is important to
ask for the "shot" version of both
vaccines. In addition, talk to
your health care provider about a
pneumonia (pneumococcal)
shot. People with diabetes are
more likely to die from pneumo-
nia or influenza than people who
do not have diabetes.
Stay at a healthy weight and
engage in moderate physical
activity for two hours and 30
minutes each week or vigorous
physical activity for one hour

and 15 minutes each week. Be
sure to add muscle strengthening
activities on two or more days
each week. Physical activity can
help you control your weight,
blood glucose, and blood pres-
sure, as well as raise your
"good" cholesterol and lower
your "bad" cholesterol.
Obesity is a major risk factor
During the past 20 years there
has been a dramatic increase in
obesity in the United States, and
this is a major factor but not
the only factor in the increas-
ing rate of newly diagnosed
cases of diabetes. Population
increases in diabetes have coin-
cided with increases in obesity,
and the type 2 diabetes epidemic
is believed to be largely a result
of the increase in obesity levels.
Diagnosed diabetes has
increased, particularly in over-
weight and obese individuals,
and improvements in diabetes
awareness and enhanced detec-
tion are occurring among the
most obese.
Ways you can help prevent
Prediabetes is a condition in
which individuals have blood
glucose levels higher than nor-
mal but not high enough to be

Diabetes directly affects the lives of millions of
Americans and their families. While no cure exists,
medical advancements are continually producing

new, more effective treatments to
control the disease. Individuals
who manage their diabetes proper-
ly can lower their risk of complica-
tions and live productive, normal
lives. During National Diabetes
Month, we recommit to educating
Americans about the warning
signs of diabetes, and help those
with the condition to mitigate the
effects of this devastating disease.
The two common forms of dia-

Diabetics use a blood glucose meter and a lancet (a tool to get a drop
of blood) to check their blood glucose. A meter will use the blood to give
you a number which is known as the blood glucose level. It is usually
checked before meals, after meals, and sometimes at bedtime. People
who take insulin usually need to check their glucose more often.

classified as diabetes. In 2007,
at least 57 million American
adults were estimated to have
prediabetes. People with predia-
betes have an increased risk of
developing type 2 diabetes,
heart disease, and stroke.
However, progression to dia-
betes among those with predia-
betes is not inevitable.
Recent studies have shown
that people at high risk for type
2 diabetes can prevent or delay

innovations. Type 2 diabetes is the most prevalent
form of diabetes and usually affects individuals age
40 and older, and those who are overweight, inac-

betes are known as type 1 and type 2. Type 1 dia-
betes occurs when an individual's immune system
destroys insulin-producing cells. The outlook for
those with type 1 diabetes has dramatically
improved in the past few decades due to a host of

tive, or have a family history of the
disease. Every day, 10 children in
this country are diagnosed with type
2 diabetes a staggering statistic
that reflects the growing epidemic of
obesity in our country.
Preventive care is the simplest
way to avoid diabetes and its com-
plications. A healthy diet, combined
with daily exercise, has been shown
to dramatically reduce incidence of
this disease.

African Americans, Latinos and Native
Americans, as well as the elderly, are at greater risk
of developing diabetes during their lifetimes. As a
nation, we must ensure that all Americans know the
warning signs of this disease, and if diagnosed,

ing 5 to 7 percent of their body
weight. You can do that by eat-
ing healthier and getting moder-
ate physical activity for 150
minutes each week or vigorous
physical activity for 75 minutes
each week.
The development and deliv-
ery of lifestyle interventions to
people at risk for diabetes are
needed to stop the rise in new
cases of diabetes.

have access to affordable, quality medical care to
help control it.
While diabetes is a complex and challenging
disease, dedicated researchers continue to make
important discoveries. This month, we honor those
who have made these successes possible, support
those who are battling diabetes, and rededicate
ourselves to sustaining Federal investments in
research and education programs that improve the
prevention and treatment of this disease.
Now, therefore, I, Barack Obama, president of
the United States of America, by virtue of the
authority vested in me by the Constitution and the
laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim
November 2009 as National Diabetes Month. I
encourage citizens, medical institutions,
Government and social service agencies, busi-
nesses, non-profit organizations, and other inter-
ested groups to join in activities that help prevent,
treat and manage diabetes.

(SoYs) at Naval Hospital

Pensacolaae amirrorimage of

the command as a whole: taking direct cae of

patients and making sure those Sailors

deploying and their families are watched over


On Oct. 29, NH
Pensacola named its top
Sailors of the Year (for FY-
09) at a luncheon at the
Crosswinds at Corry
The Senior Sailor of the
Year is HM1 Marquita Y
Culley of radiology. The
Junior SoY is HM2 Sally
R. Griffin of the Plans,

apy department.
HM1(SW) Culley,
leading petty officer of
radiology, is described as
having "superior leader-
ship ability" that enhances
the professional and tech-
nical development of 22
junior Sailors, two
reservists and 19 civilians
under her tutelage, said the
department's leading sen-
ior enlisted member,
The petty officer man-
ages a $2.7 million annual
budget and maintains cog-
nizance of $5 million in
equipment supporting
more than 150,000 hospi-
tal beneficiaries. Her tire-
less efforts were para-
mount in the providing of
more than 77,000 radio-
logical exams without

delay or interruption to
patient care despite a 20
percent decrease in man-
power due to deploy-
ments. Culley oversaw
and managed Sailors in
the purging of more than
4,400 pounds of X-ray
film resulting in a 20 per-
cent increase of storage
space in preparation for
the department's digital
archiving system.
As a person who con-
sistently seeks ways to
improve patient care and
safety, Culley's efforts in
organizing a 24-hour duty
section, and on-call watch
operating room watches,
provides continuous emer-
gency services and radio-
logical support.
Culley, known as a
"problem-solver" who
possesses an "outside the
box mentality" also pro-

nates community service
opportunities throughout



the area resulting in 105
Sailors volunteering more
than 435 off-duty hours of
40 separate projects.

"exceptional planning and
prioritizing" to handle the
tremendous responsibility
in support of command
individual augmentees
(IAs) deploying through-
out the world; and in sup-
port of their families
remaining in the area.
"She has accomplished
more personally and pro-
fessionally than anyone in
her position in the last
three years," said HMCM
Ronald Edquilang. She is
the "go-to person" for all
deployment requirements
and has been the key to the
successful operation of
Griffin maintains strict
quality assurance on data-
base and deployment
readiness of more than
1,070 active-duty person-
nel from the hospital and
its 12 branch health clin-
ics. Due to her detailed
nature and unrelenting
pursuit of excellence,
POMI successfully
deployed 148 Sailors in
support of 45 Navy medi-
cine taskers; and eased the
transition of 90 personnel

USS Constitution is America's 'ship of state'

By MC1 Eric Brown
USS Constitution Public Affairs
Mass. (NNS) USS Constitution recent-
ly became America's Ship of State.
USS Constitution's primary mission
will remain education and public outreach
and any Ship of State functions will be an
adjunct to the ship's primary mission,
according the National Defense
Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2010 in
section 1022.
It is the sense of Congress that the pres-
ident, vice president, executive branch
officials and members of Congress should
use the USS Constitution for the conduct-
ing of pertinent matters of state, such as
hosting visiting heads of state, signing leg-
islation relating to the armed forces and
signing maritime related treaties.
Constitution's 71st and current com-
manding officer, Cmdr. Timothy Cooper,
could not be more excited about this law
signed by President Barrack Obama, after

the House of Representatives and the
Senate passed the bill earlier in October.
"I am really proud and humbled to be a
part of this honor," Cooper said. "USS
Constitution has always been the most vis-
ible reminder of the beginnings of our
Navy. Now, USS Constitution is a visible
reminder ofAmerica, and all that we stand
Constitution was launched into the
Boston Harbor on Oct. 21, 1797. In her
years of active service, from 1798-1855,
the three-masted wooden frigate fought in
the Quasi-War with France, the Barbary
Wars and the War of 1812.
Today Old Ironsides is the oldest com-
missioned warship afloat in the world, has
a permanent crew of 73 active-duty U.S.
Navy Sailors and is visited by nearly half
a million people every year.
The origins of Old Ironsides status as
America's Ship of State were in July of
1997 when then Cmdr. Chris Melhuish,
Constitution's 65th commanding officer,
had a vision for the future of the ship,

shortly before he took command.
"The idea struck me after Cmdr.
Michael Beck (USS Constitution's 64th
commanding officer) challenged me to
create my vision for the ship, following
his vision, which was to sail the ship for
the first time in 116 years, for
Constitution's bicentennial," said
The status of the ship had inherently
changed after that historic sail, and
Constitution should no longer be thought
of as a pierside museum exhibit.
"The best description of the ship was
'ship of state,'"Melhuish said. "That was
the vision, and then began the long
process of translating that vision into a
In October of 2006, he laid out that con-
cept on paper, which was endorsed by the
Congress of the Naval Order of the United
States, and by Deputy Secretary of
Defense Gordon England.
Then-Massachusetts Sen. Edward
Kennedy sponsored the bill in 2008, but it

did not make final passage into the
National Defense Authorization Act for
Fiscal Year 2009, which would take anoth-
er year.
"The people of this country, through
Congress, have done the right thing,
which should have been done in 1815,"
said Melhuish, referring to a National
Intelligencer article that appeared in
"Let us keep Old Ironsides at home,"
the newspaper author opined, shortly after
Constitution won a string of victories
against her British adversaries in the War
of 1812.
"She has, literally, become a nation's
ship, and should be preserved. Not as a
sheer hulk in ordinary (for she is no ordi-
nary vessel); but, in honorable pomp as a
glorious monument of her own, and other
naval victories."
"One hundred and 94 years later, we
have recognized our greatest ship,"
Melhuish said. "I'm very, very happy
about that."

Handel's 'Messiah'
in Pensacola Dec. 5
From Pensacola Symphony Orchestra

Pensacola Symphony Orchestra (PSO) will once
again join with the Pensacola Choral Society and the
University of West Florida Singers to perform the
holiday classic George Frideric Handel's "Messiah"
Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul Catholic Church.
This season's presentation of "Messiah" brings
two of Pensacola's most celebrated vocal talents in
the soloist line up.
Jane Redding, soprano, has performed with operas

Those performing solos in Handel's "Messiah"
include (clockwise from top right) Jane Redding,
Andrew Elliott, Wanda Brister and Leo Day

and orchestras across the United States and Asia.
Tenor soloist, Leo Day, is minister of music at Olive
Baptist Church and an adjunct voice faculty member
at the University of West Florida.
Wanda Brister, mezzo-soprano, and Andrew
Elliott, baritone, round out the soloist ensemble.
Brister is associate professor of voice at Florida
State University where Elliott was her student.
"As a performer, this is one of those scores that is
full of favorite moments that we look forward to,"
said Peter Rubardt, music director.
"I imagine that most everybody struggles at times
with the stress and chaos of the holidays," Rubardt
"I don't think there is a more enjoyable or uplift-
ing way to connect with the true spirit of the holi-
days than to experience Handel's "Messiah."
Tickets are on sale through Dec. 4. Reserved tick-
ets are $25 and general admission tickets are $20.
