MCCS HAPPENINGS


MILITARY SPACE-AVAILABLE TRAVEL

Space Available Flight, more commonly referred to as Space-A travel or military hops, is a privilege afforded to military service members, their families, and service retirees. The system accommodates these passengers by letting them fill seats on Air Force air transport flights that would otherwise be left empty. The seats are made available on a space-available basis. Unused seats on DoD owned or controlled aircraft are made available once all the space required (duty) passengers and cargo have been accommodated. Space-A travelers may sign up for travel 60 days in advance of the desired travel date. Passengers are categorized by priority of travel and are processed in priority order by the sign-in time. For leisure travel, Military Retirees are placed in category VI, which is a rather low priority There is no charge for personnel traveling in government owned aircraft. However, if a Space-A flight is made on a commercial contract carrier, a fee will be assessed. The fee is variable (approximately $15-30) depending on the port. There is also a fee for meals served aboard military aircraft. Space required passengers or cargo may require the removal of Space-A passengers at any point. If removed en route, you may re-register with your original date and time of registration. Passenger Service will assign a new date and time to any country or destination you change or add on your application. Always be prepared to purchase onward or return commercial transportation, meals, and lodging. Remember Space-A seats are normally identified as early as 2-3 hours and late as 30 minutes prior to departure. It is recommended you check with the passenger service center for the space available show time for the flight you wish to take. TIPS FOR TRAVELING SPACE-A • Plan, be flexible, be patient. • If possible, travel at off-peak Space-A travel periods. Historically, February-March and October-November are low travel periods. • Be as flexible as possible in choosing a destination. • There is a head tax on CONUS outbound or federal inspection fee on CONUS inbound international commercial charters. • Space-A is just that-space that is available after all mission requirements are fulfilled. Military aircraft are subject at all time, first and foremost, to D0D mission response. For registration information, travel categories, and more…go to http://www.baseops.net/spaceatravel or contact the Charleston Air Force Base Operations @ (843) 963-3083/3048.

LIBRARY UNITED THROUGH READING MCAS Library is excited to announce a partnership with United Through Reading. This is a non-profit organization and their mission is to unite military families facing physical separation by facilitating the bonding experience of reading aloud together. One of the most difficult things a child can experience is having a parent deployed to a war zone for an indeterminate period of time. Our Military Program helps ease the stress of separation for military families by having deployed parents read children’s books aloud via DVD for their child to watch at home. Our vision is that all children will feel the security of caring family relationships and develop a love of reading through the read aloud experience. United Through Reading is the nation’s first nonprofit to promote the read-aloud experience for separated military families. United Through Reading offers deployed parents the opportunity to be video-recorded reading storybooks to their children which eases the stress of separation, maintains positive emotional connections and cultivates a love of reading. At nearly 200 recording locations worldwide, Marines, Soldiers and Sailors, National Guard, Reservists and Airmen, can read to their children from units on ships, in tents in Afghanistan, on bases and installations around the world and at 70 USO centers worldwide. Over one and a half million military parents, spouses and children have benefited from the program since its inception. Please call the AS Library to take advantage of this service. You may bring a book of your choice or select one of our titles to read to your child.

TODDLERS & TV Media is everywhere today in the form of television, computers, tablets, and smart phones. The temptation to rely on media, especially television, to entertain children is incredible, but all that tube time might do more harm than good. How much television time are we talking about these days? Here some shocking statistics on the amount of television watched by today’s children: • 90% of parents reported that their children under 2 years of age watch some form of electronic media. On average, they viewed 1-2 hours of television per day. • Today’s children (all ages) are spending an average of seven hours a day on entertainment media, including televisions, computers, phones and other electronic devices. • Children two to five years old spend an average of thirty-two hours a week in front of a TV screen. So what’s the harm with all that television and media exposure? • Studies have shown that excessive media use can lead to reduced attention, difficulty in school, eating and sleeping disorders, and obesity.

• Television viewing near bedtime can cause poor sleep habits which can adversely affect mood, behavior, and learning.

• Kids should spend time on outdoor play, reading, hobbies and using their imaginations in free play.

How can you entertain your child when television isn’t on? Here are a few easy ideas: • Once a child is old enough to read, encourage daily reading time to occupy
