Maritime Force Protection Unit Commanding Ocer Cmdr. Stephen Love and Machinery Technician 3rd Class Roy Larsen cut a cake in celebration of the long history of the U.S. Coast Guard. It is an honor to be one of the many men and women to serve in the Coast Guard, Love said. I think about all those who came before me who risked their lives or even gave their lives to serve our nation and to protect those on the seas. Founded by Alexander Hamilton in 1790 as the Revenue Marine and later as the Revenue Cutter Service, the Coast Guard is the United States oldest continuous seagoing service. President Woodrow Wilson signed into law the act to create the Coast Guard on Jan. 28, 1915. e act, passed by Congress on Jan. 20, that combined the Life-Saving Service and Revenue Cutter Service to form the Coast Guard. During World War II, President Franklin Roosevelt transferred the Coast Guard from the Treasury Department to the Department of the Navy. After the war, it returned to the Treasury Deparment, until transferred to the Department of Transportation in 1967. On March 1, 2003, the Coast Guard formally transferred from the Department of Transportation to the newly-created Department of Homeland Security. Today the Coast Guard is tasked with law enforcement, as well as safeguarding our nations maritime interests and the environment around the world. It is an honor to be one of the many men and women to serve in the Coast Guard. Cmdr.

Have you obtained an auto loan through the Military Installment Loans and Education Services auto loan program since 2010? If so, you could be one of approximately 50,000 servicemembers who will receive refunds from U.S. Bank and Dealer Financial Services for extra costs related to their use of deceptive marketing and lending practices under MILES. Why am I getting a refund? On June 27, 2013 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ordered U.S. Bank and DFS to refund $6.5 million dollars to servicemembers who obtained subprime auto loans through MILES. e MILES program was conditioned on payments being made by allotment; however borrowers were not informed of the extra costs associated with the allotment and the method for processing payments. Specically, the CFPB found that the nance charges, such as the allotment fee, and annual percentage rate, payment schedule and total payments for the loans were not disclosed to borrowers. In addition to refunding the extra costs charged due to these omissions, the CFPB also ordered U.S. Bank and DFS to stop deceptive practices, provide refunds or credits without any further action by consumers, stop requiring the use of allotments for future loans, improve disclosures, and require reporting on their redress plans. How much is my refund and how will I receive it? If you have an outstanding MILES auto loan and you obtained it after January 1, 2010, you are likely entitled to a refund. According to the Ameri can Forces Press Service approxi mately 50,000 servicemembers will get refunds averaging $100 and some will receive refunds that are much higher. e refunds will be provided to the servicemember by U.S. Bank or DFS in the form of an account credit or by a check in the mail. is should require no further action on your part but you should call MILES to en sure they have your current address on le, especially if you have moved since you received your loan. To do so you can call the MILES Allotment/ Service Contract/GAP Assistance ho tline at (800) 293-2040. ey will ask for your social security number to access your account, and it will also probably be helpful to have your ac count information on hand when you contact them. Should I set up an allotment in the future? Allotments have traditionally been helpful to military members because they ensure payments are automatically made even if you deploy or move. A creditor may actually require a military member to pay by allotment. Before you set up an allotment, the CFPB cautions against several factors. First, be aware that there may be extra costs associated with third parties processing your payment. Second, you will have less exibility in the event of a nancial emergency. Because the payments come directly from DFAS it will be more dicult to adjust your budget than if the payments were being pulled from your bank account. ird, you will not be able to contest an allotment payment as an unauthorized charge as you would be able to if sent from a bank account. Finally, lenders may set up a separate bank account in your name to receive the allotment payment from DFAS. is may result in a variety of additional fees. If the creditor will allow it, a good alternative to an allotment may be setting up an Automated Clearing House payment which draws money from your bank account rather than directly from your pay. is method is usually free, easy to set up, and will give you more control over the transfer of your money. A word of caution for ACH accounts While an ACH account has various advantages when compared to an allotment, there are a few potential drawbacks to using ACH accounts. First, an ACH is actually a debit that gives creditors access to and information about your bank account. Second, a creditor or business may incorrectly bill you. ird, you might overdraw your account if there is not enough funding to cover the amount billed, whether the business bills you correctly or you are overcharged. erefore, if you choose this option it is important to be vigilant of charges to your bank account so you can correct any potential errors that occur. As with any transaction, it is important to review and research the transaction, including the manner of payment and any possible issues with the manner of payment. Finally, no matter how you pay for a transaction, always scrutinize your billing statement and ask about THEKINGS BA Y, GEORGIA Local news and views Naval Submarine Base, Kings Bay, Ga.

Capt. Henry Hendrix, NHHCs director, accepted the ag which will be preserved and displayed in one of the U.S. Navys museums. e ags journey to Washington, D.C. began during the Civil War in 1865. It was early morning as Lt. William Ladd rode his horse into a nearly deserted Richmond, Va. e siege of the Petersburg had come to an end after eight months, signifying an end to the war that had divided America. With the Confederate capital of Richmond captured, the last hopes of the rebel army vanished and the army and populace of the city had scattered. It was while investigating the city that Ladd observed a Confederate ship ying their colors. I was in the Capitol grounds as early as 5:30 am, wrote Ladd, in the History of the 13th New Hampshire Regiment. I saw no ag on the Capitol at that time. After looking about the grounds and vicinity for a few minutes, and realizing I was alone in the city, I rode back towards Rocketts, and when near there met a white Union cavalryman the rst Union soldier I had seen in Richmond that morning. We tied our horses, took a ski and rowed out to a rebel war ship in the James, and captured two Confederate ags then ying upon her. I pulled down the larger ag, the cavalryman the smaller one, and we rolled them up and tied them to our saddles. Unknown to Ladd, the Confederates had previously rigged the ship, Confederate States Ship Hampton, to explode, denying the Union Army its capture. Soon after he and the cavalryman left with their captured ags, the ship was rocked by an explosion and slowly sank into the waters of the Potomac. After the war, Ladd kept the ag in his residence, where it remained for years. Fast forward to 2011.

Fleet & Family Support Center workshops e sentencing phase began July 31 at Fort Meade, Md., in the court-martial trial of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, who was found not guilty of the most serious charge he faced knowingly aiding the enemy but was convicted on20 other specications related to the misappropriation of hundreds of thousands of intelligence documents he sent to the WikiLeaks organization. Manning faces a possibility of 136 years of connement in the sentencing phase, said David Coombs, Mannings defense attorney, speaking outside the courtroom just minutes after presiding judge Army Col. Denise Lind read the verdict in the case. Bradley and his defense team were emotional at the rst not guilty count, Coombs said, but he added that there would be no celebrating. We won the battle, per se, but the war is going to be tomorrow, Coombs said after the verdict. Sentencing is what really matters at the end of the day. Aiding the enemy held a maximum penalty of life in prison, so Coombs said beating that specication was encouraging to the defense. Manning also was found not guilty of a charge involving the alleged unauthorized release of a video. Manning pleaded guilty at the beginning of the trial to 10 counts involving the unauthorized release of intelligence information, and was found guilty in his trial of nine other specications. ese charges include bypassing security mechanisms, adding unauthorized software to the classied network and wrongfully storing classied information.

On a shelf in a Dayton, Va. building belonging to the Harrisonburg-Rocking ham Historical Society, sat an archival collection box. e vice president of the society was working with volunteers to update their collection registry. As she went through the boxes she made an as tounding discovery, a Con federate ag. A handwrit ten note sewn onto it read, at of Confed gun boat Hampton burnt in James River at the taking of Rich mond. e ag was taken from the burning ship by Liet. Ladd (13th N. Hamp shire), Gen. Devens sta. I was surprised and amazed when I saw that we had such a rare, unique article in our collections, said Nancy Hess, now former vice president of the society. Her unearthing of the ag started an 18-month hunt for both clues of its origin and, ultimately, a place where the society knew it would receive proper care. e ag remained a bit of a mystery through the years. Hess said she contacted previous members about it, and she learned that the ag was mailed to the society from a law rm settling the estate of a client. When a former society president went to a Massachusetts courthouse to look up the will in 2000, he found no mention of the ag or its disposition. Finally Hess took action, rst writing museums about the ag, asking for someone to take and conserve it. When she unable to nd a museum that would conserve and display it, she started calling. Earlier this year, Hess contacted the U.S. Army Center of Military History. Retired Col. Robert Dalessandro, the director of the center, recommended she contact NHHCs director, Capt. Henry Hendrix. In March she received the long-awaited call from Hendrix, and an answer to her hopes to nd a proper resting place for the ag. We were contacted by Mrs. Hess and told the amazing story about the Confederate ag. I couldnt let this incredible opportunity to recognize our naval heritage slip by, especially during the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. I told her NHHC would indeed be interested in the societys storied ag, Hendrix said. A month later in Dayton, Hess met with Becky Poulliot, executive director of NHHCs Hampton Roads Naval Museum in Norfolk, Va. Poulliot inspected the ag, listened to the societys concerns about it and knew she wanted it. In the museum business, if you are lucky, you occasionally have an opportunity to experience what we call wow moments, Poulliot said. e minute I saw the ensign from CSS Hampton was one of those moments for a variety of reasons. First, the ag has an authentic provenance of a pivotal point in American history the fall of Richmond. Secondly, according to our sta research, it is the only known ag in existence that ew from a Maury gunboat. at gunboat was built across the Elizabeth River from our museum. So, it is irreplaceable. Lastly, this ensign lls an important gap regarding the material culture of the Confederate Navy in Hampton Roads. As the director accepted the gift, he presented the ag to Poulliot for her to begin the conservation process to make the ag ready to become part of the museum. We plan to prominently display it in our Civil War gallery, Poulliot said. I assure you that it will stop people in their tracks. ey will want to learn more about the Civil War, and how the Confederacy built Maury gunboats. e acceptance of this ensign from CSS Hampton is an honor for our institution. e Hampton Roads Naval Museum is located on the second level of Nauticus in Norfolk, Va.

$487 billion reduction in defense spending over the next decade required by the Budget Control Act of 2011, which DOD is currently implementing. If sequester-level cuts persist, DOD would experience nearly $1 trillion in defense spending reductions over the next 10 years, Hagel said. To help DOD balance strategic ends, ways and means under these budget scenarios, the Strategic Choices and Management Review scrutinized every aspect of DODs budget, including contingency planning, business practices, force structure, pay and benets, acquisition practices, and modernization portfolios. Everything was on the table. Hagel explained the review considered three possible budget scenarios: President Barack Obamas fiscal year 2014 budget, which includes what he called a carefully calibrated and largely back-loaded $150 bil lion reduction in defense spending over the next 10 years; The Budget Control Acts sequester-level caps, which would cut another $52 billion from defense in fiscal year 2014, with $500 billion in reductions for the department over the next 10 years; and An in-between scenario that would reduce defense spending by about $250 billion over the next 10 years, but would be largely back-loaded. e secretary said senior leaders and sta members from his oce, the Joint Sta, the services, the combatant commands and defense eld activities all participated in the review, and all options were examined with four priorities in mind: Prioritizing DODs missions and capabilities around its core respon sibility of defending the nation; Maximizing the militarys combat power by looking to reduce every other category of spending rst; Preserving and strengthening military readiness; and, Honoring the service and sacrice of DODs people. e secretary said that he and his immediate predecessors, Leon E. Panetta and Robert M. Gates, all have created and implemented plans to cut headquarters structures. New eciencies pointed up during the review, he said, should be pursued regardless of scal circumstances. ese include: Reducing the departments major headquar ters budgets by 20 per cent, beginning with the office of the defense secretary, the Joint Staff, service headquarters and secretariats, combatant commands, and defense agencies and field activities. Although the 20 percent cut applies to budget dollars, organizations will strive for a goal of 20 percent reductions in government civilians and military personnel billets on headquarters staffs, Hagel said. Reducing the number of direct reports to the secretary by further consolidating functions within OSD and eliminating positions; and Reducing intelligence analysis and production at combatant command intelligence and opera tions centers, which also will foster closer integration and reduce duplication across the defense enterprise. If department funding is subject to sequester-level caps over the long term, he said, other potential cuts could mean consolidation of regional combatant commands, defense agency mission cuts and further information technology consolidation. Pay and benets for service members and defense civilians consume roughly half of the DOD budget, Hagel said. If left unchecked, pay and benets will continue to eat into readiness and modernization, he added. at could result in a far less capable force that is well-compensated, but poorly trained and poorly equipped. People are the departments most important asset, Hagel said. Still, he added, Overall personnel costs have risen dramatically some 40 percent above ination since 2001. e department cannot aord to sustain this growth. As with base realignments and closures, Congress has opposed some DOD proposals for cutting compensation costs, Hagel said. He said the department will need Congress partnership to implement proposed measures that include: Changing military health care for retirees to increase use of privatesector insurance when available; Changing how the basic allowance for housing is calculated so individuals are asked to pay a little more of their housing costs; Reducing the overseas cost-of-living adjustment; and Continuing to limit military and civilian pay raises. Hagel said he has asked Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta, to lead an eort to identify $50 billion in compensation savings over 10 years, and still enable us to recruit and retain a highquality force. Savings in headquarters sta and compensation still will leave DOD $350 billion to $400 billion short of the $500 billion in cuts sequestration requires over the next 10 years, he noted. e review had to take a hard look at changes to our force structure and modernization plans, the secretary said. e review identied excess capacity to meet current and anticipated future defense needs, he said. In particular, the analysis concluded that we can strategically reduce the size of our ground and tactical air forces even beyond the current drawdown, Hagel said. While no decisions have been made and much more analysis is needed, he said, with one war over and another ending, taking with them the need for large-scale counterinsurgency operations, it makes sense to take another look at the Armys force structure, which is currently planned to reach 490,000 in the active component and 555,000 in the reserves. e review found, he said, that we could still execute the priority missions determined by our defense strategy while reducing Army end-strength to between 420,000 and 450,000 in the active component and between 490,000 and 530,000 in the Army reserves. Similarly, the Air Force could reduce tactical aircraft squadrons, potentially as many as ve, and cut the size of the C-130 eet with minimal risk. Hagel said the department can still defend the country and fulll its global responsibilities with the changes to force structure, compensation and staing outlined above, while meeting the $150 billion in savings required by the presidents budget proposal. Signicant reductions beyond that level, he warned, would require many more dramatic cuts to force structure. e review examined two possible strategic approaches to reducing force structure and modernization in planning for sequester-level cuts, he said: one emphasizing a larger force size, and the other placing a premium on maintaining a technological edge. e rst approach would shrink the active Army to between 380,000 and 450,000 troops, reduce the Navys carrier strike groups from 11 to eight or nine, reduce the Marine Corps from 182,000 to between 150,000 and 175,000, and retire older Air Force bombers. e second approach, which would trade highend capability for size, would sustain regional power projection and presence capacity by making more limited cuts to gr ound forces, ships and aircraft, Hagel said, but would cancel or curtail many modernization programs, slow cyber growth and reduce special operations forces.

Up eriscope with Bill Wesselho Book Lovers Day is Aug. 9. So I went out to see what others are reading or recently have read. I read two books simultaneously, depending on my mood. I try to finish both at once, but my timing is off right now. I just finished American Creation: Triumphs and Tragedies at the Founding of the Republic by Joseph J. Ellis and started on Hunting Eichmann: How a Band of Survivors and a Young Spy Agency Chased Down the Worlds Most Notorious Nazi by Neal Bascomb. Im also reading The Dark Side of Camelot by Seymour M. Hersh with A Devil of a Whipping: The Battle of Cowpens by Lawrence E. Babits coming up next.Naomi Brooks Family member Tacoma, Wash. Im reading Footsteps In Time (by Sarah Woodbury). Its interesting. FN3 Dedrick Wright USS Florida Gold Detroit Just technical manuals. It wasnt for fun or by choice. Lori Brooks Retired Navy Jacksonville, Fla. Im reading Agenda 21 by Glenn Beck. Im on chapter 24, and its been kind of boring so far. Capt. Steve Benke CO, Boston Navy ROTC Jefferson City, Mo.

October is Energy Awareness Month for the Navy, and at Naval Submarine Base New London, employing energy conservation as a means of reducing shore infrastructure costs to invest more in support of the warghter, is in full swing. In concert with many other clean energy programs, the SUBASE Public Works Department and the base detachment of Naval Facilities Engineering Command Mid-Atlantic team are looking into capturing the power of wind as a method of promoting clean energy and energy independence. e department recently installed a 193 foot wind survey tower in Polaris Park, located in the Balfour Beatty Housing Community, which will be used to study the amount of wind that gusts along the ames River and may be a potential power source in the future. e tower will be up for at least a year to study wind patterns and the average velocity of wind in the area in order to determine if a utility size wind turbine would benet the base, said Bill Jankowski, energy manager at SUBASE Public Works Department. If feasible, this would be a good deal for the Navy and a good deal for taxpayers. Electricity is the most expensive form of power that is purchased by the base according to an EPA study; New London spent $10,864,429 on electric power in Fiscal Year 2011. Jankowski said having a wind turbine would help to curtail those costs. He estimates that one utility size wind turbine would output an average of two to ve megawatts of power a year. Not including the shore power used to support submarines tied up to the piers, New London commands use an average Base studies wind power THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, August 8, 2013 9


e Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Robotics Challenge was created with a clear vision: spur development of advanced robots that can assist humans in mitigating and recovering from future natural and manmade disasters. Disasters evoke powerful, physical images of destruction, yet the rst event of the DRC was a software competition carried out in a virtual environment that looked like an obstacle course set in a suburban area. at setting was the rst proving ground for testing software that might control successful disaster response robots, and it was the worlds rst view into the DARPA Robotics Challenge Simulator, an opensource platform that could revolutionize robotics development. Disaster response robots require multiple layers of software to explore and interact with their environments, use tools, maintain balance and communicate with human operators. In the Virtual Robotics Challenge, competing teams applied software of their own design to a simulated robot in an attempt to complete a series of tasks that are prerequisites for more complex activities. Twenty-six teams from eight countries qualied to compete in the VRC, which ran from June 17 to 21. DARPA had allocated resources for the six teams that did best, but in an interesting twist, good sportsmanship and generosity will allow members of the top nine teams, listed below, to move forward: Team IHMC, Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, Pensacola, Fla. (52 points) WPI Robotics Engineering C Squad (WRECS), Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Mass. (39 points) MIT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Mass. (34 points) Team TRACLabs, TRACLabs, Inc., Webster, Texas (30 points) JPL / UCSB / Caltech, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. (29 points) TORC, TORC / TU Darmstadt / Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Va. (27 points) Team K, Japan (25 points) TROOPER, Lockheed Martin / University of Pennsylvania / Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Cherry Hill, N.J. (24 points) Case Western University, Cleveland, Ohio (23 points) e top six teams earned funding and an ATLAS robot from DARPA to compete in the DRC Trials in December 2013. DARPA is also funding several other Track A teams to construct their own robot and compete in the Trials. e Trials are the second of three DRC events, and the rst physical competition. In a demonstration of good sportsmanship, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which also has a DARPAfunded Track A eort with its own robot, decided to merge its two efforts and oer the bulk of the resources it earned in the VRC to other teams. DARPA split the freed resources between the next two teams: e robot associated with the JPL win and some funding now goes to Lockheed Martins TROOPER. Additional funds are being allocated to a newly formed team of Team K and Case Western. at team, now known as HKU, will use an ATLAS robot generously donated to it by Hong Kong University to participate in the DRC Trials in December. us, in total, seven teams with ATLAS robots and DARPA support will be going to the DRC Trials, where they will compete with other teams with their own robots. VRC teams were evaluated based on task completion and eective operator control of the robots in ve simulated runs for each of three tasks, for 15 total timed runs, that addressed robot perception, manipulation and locomotion. e tasks included entering, driving and exiting a utility vehicle; walking across muddy, uneven and rubble-strewn terrain; and attaching a hose connector to a spigot, then turning a nearby valve. To simulate communications limitations in a disaster zone, the VRC imposed a round trip latency of 500 milliseconds on data transmission, and varied the total number of communications bits available in each run, from a high of 900 megabits down to 60 megabits. To conduct the VRC, DARPA funded the Open Source Robotics Foundation to develop a cloudbased simulator that calculates and displays the physical and sensory behaviors of robots in a three-dimen sional virtual space, in real time. e simulator allowed teams to send commands and receive data over the Internet to and from a simulated ATLAS robot information very similar to what would be sent between a physical robot and its operator in the real world.

Animals driven by rains Due to the recent heavy rains, many animals around Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, Ga., been forced out of their natural habitat to look for shelter on dry land. A rise in animal sightings in Base Housing has caused Installation and Environ ment ocials to urge resi dents to use caution. We want to make the residents in Base Housing aware of some unusual animal activity due to the recent rains, Brian Wallace, branch head, Environmental Oce, Installation and Environment Division, Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, said. e wet lands around the base have more water than normal which is forcing animals such as snakes, scorpions and alligators to move to higher and drier ground. It is forcing them to look for shelter elsewhere including houses, sheds and other drier places, he said. We want the residents to be aware because the more the animals move the greater chance they will have in coming in contact with them. is especially goes for alligators, Wallace said. is is the time of the year where younger alligators start looking for newer places to live because they are being forced out of their habitat due to more mature alpha male alligators, he said. Alligators carry a lot of bacteria in their mouth and if bitten, an infection will set in almost immediately and it is very hard to get it under control, Wallace said. Wallace stressed that should a resident come across any of these types of animals, not to handle the situation themselves. Residents that come in contact with any wildlife on base should contact the Marine Corps police Department, Installation and Environment Division Trouble Desk/Duty Ocer or the Command Duty Ocer if it is after hours, he said. We do not want anyone to handle the wild animals. If it is something we cant handle we can contact the Georgia Department of Natural Resources or a licensed alligator handler. ere are certain animals on base that, in the future, may be considered as a protected species, according to Wallace. e Eastern Diamondback Rattle Snake is being considered to be put on the endangered species list, Wallace said. If someone harms a protected animal, there may be potential liability issues associated with it. Julie Robbins, natural resources ocer, said although most wildlife interactions are pleasant experiences, there are a number of animals with the potential to sting, bite, puncture, scratch or otherwise cause injury/ illness to humans and domestic animals, Approximately half of all snake bites occur when humans attempted to handle or kill the snake, she said. Robbins said it is important to keep these hazards in mind when wild animals are encountered. Remove potential habitat including wood piles, debris piles, lawn clippings, and heavy underbrush from around buildings or play areas. Wear protective clothing when working around yard debris and wood piles, including thick leather gloves and boots. Limit yard work or activities in warm weather when visibility is low. Apply bug spray. Teach children to identify re ant mounds, wasp nets and bee hives. Do not feed wildlife. Animals that become habituated to humans may become aggressive. is is particularly true of American alligators and raccoons. Keep pets up to date on vaccinations, especially rabies and distemper. Inspect and replace door sweeps and window jambs to prevent access. Report heavy mosquito activity to the Naval Branch Health Clinic. Seek immediate medical attention if you are bit by a wild animal or appear to have an allergic reaction. Naval Submarine School held a change of command ceremony July 19, at Naval Submarine Base New London. During the ceremony Capt. Andrew Jarrett relieved Capt. David Roberts as commanding ocer. Rear Adm. David Johnson, Program Executive Ocer for Submarines, presented Roberts with the Legion of Merit medal for the work hed done leading the school charged with training the Navys undersea specialists. What do you say when turning over the best major command in the submarine force? Roberts asked. What do you say to the hundreds of people who make this small university function at such a high level every day or to the thousands of students who walk its campus every day. Naval Submarine School is unlike any place Ive ever served and Im a better naval ocer and a better person because of this experience. Roberts took command of Naval Submarine School August of 2011 and will assume command of the Submarine Learning Center in August. Speaking to an audience overowing with family, friends and shipmates, Roberts thanked them for their support, while telling how during his tenure at the school he grew personally and professionally e complexity of submarining, and the high operational demand for submarines to conduct missions around the world, requires the highest quality Sailors the Navy has to oer, he said. If we arent making the next generation better, we are fail ing the fleet. We take this very seri ously at Naval Submarine School. Jarretts previous assignment was as deputy commandant of Midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy. He graduated from the Naval Academy in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. Following nuclear power and submarine training, he reported to USS Alexander Hamilton (SSBN 617) where he qualied in submarines and as a nuclear engineering ocer. He has also served aboard USS Henry M. Jackson (SSBN 730), completing two strategic patrols. While assigned to USS Minneapolis-Saint Paul (SSN 708) he was the navigation/operations ocer and completed two North Atlantic deployments and a Mediterranean deployment, followed by a tour as as commanding ocer of USS Pittsburgh (SSN720). Capt. Roberts instituted fundamental changes to initial accession training, dramatically improving the quality of Sailors and ocers delivered to the eet. His direct involvement in preparing 21 submarine crews from four squadrons to conduct submarine operations worldwide resulted in improved performance and contributed to the success of missions vital to national security, Jarrett said. Andrews at helm of sub schoolof 10 megawatts per year, so a turbine could make an impact of 20 to 50 percent. Its all about reducing the operating costs of shore operations, said Jankowski. Energy eciency and reducing our environmental footprint are big priorities for the Navy. e Navy has set aggressive goals to reduce overall energy consumption by 30 percent by 2015, and SUBASE and Jankowskis team are committed to contributing to those goals. e Navy has outlined a shore energy program that will increase the Navys energy security and comply with federal energy mandates by pursuing energy eciency rst, integrating viable renewable energy technology and transforming the services energy culture and behavior. rough cooperation and collaboration, Jankowski believes the New London community can make a signicant impact on the nations energy security. When we are able to reduce costs ashore we can spend more of that money on our forces at sea and better support our warghting abilities, said Jankowski.
