Arleigh Burke-Class guidedmissile destroyer USS Cole (DDG 67) held a burial at sea for 18 former service members and one spouse on the ship’s flight deck Dec. 30. Cole’s Executive Officer Cmdr. James J. Von St. Paul and Lt. Ethan Everts, assigned to Commander, Naval Surface Forces Atlantic Minitry Center, spoke during the ceremony. “Today, Cole’s crew had the privilege to render appropriate military honors for shipmates who have passed on from this life,” Von St. Paul said. “The duty is a privilege because we have the chance to reflect on the rich tradition of service that we have inherited from the men and women who have gone before us.” Historically, ships used burials at sea because they lacked proper means to bury Sailors. Today, the ceremony is one of the highest honors paid to former service members. “Today was a new experience. It was an honor and a privilege to be part of something that we don’t do

Sailors in the Hampton Roads area returned to work on Tuesday, Jan. 10 after a blanket of snow covered the ground ranging anywhere between five and 12 inches of snow. Freezing rain and sleet began to fall Friday which blanketed the area followed by a heavy swath of snow causing blizzard conditions is some of the region. The winter storm caused Hampton Roads operations to be shut down except to mission essential personnel from Saturday through Tuesday due to the hazardous conditions. “Winter Storm Helena has been a challenging event. Cleanup efforts have been hampered by the layer of ice remaining underneath the snow but crews on and off the installations are continuing to do an excellent job to create safe routes for personnel,” Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Director of Emergency Management Ruth Reich said. “Personnel will still need to remain vigilant and cautious to black ice, safety issues and driving with caution.” Compounding the mess of snow and ice the plunge in temperature was some of the coldest air of the season arriving behind Helena. Lows the morning of January 8 dipped into the teens, rendering salt relatively useless for treating areas of ice on roads.

Sheriff of the mess decks By MC2 Nathan R. McDonald Wasp Amphibious Ready Group Public Affairs RED SEA
It’s 10:45 a.m., everything is ready, tables are wiped down, dishes are washed and food restocked. It’s quiet. Each crew member finishes one task or another, and seizes the chance to catch his or her breath before the lunch rush begins. In 15 minutes, a torrent of Sailors and Marines will invade their space for the second time today. This could be a busy restaurant in any city, but it’s a daily occurrence on the mess decks of amphibious dock landing ship USS Whidbey Island (LSD 41). Four times a day, the mess decks are filled to the brim with a hungry crew and a welltrained staff. Nearly incomprehensible amounts of food are eaten and restocked, eaten and restocked. Yet, without fail, within minutes after each torrent fades the staff has the place looking clean and ready to go again. Managing this hive
of activity is Mess Deck Master-at-Arms Petty Officer 1st Class Joshua Ramsey. His job is one part police officer, one part human resources manager, and one part health inspector. “I directly supervise all of the food service attendants (FSAs), and I’m responsible for making sure the mess decks are clean and presentable, that they’re set up to accommodate everyone for their meals, and enforcing uniform standards and grooming regulations for all personnel,” Ramsey said. “Basically, everything that most people take for granted when they come to eat.” FSAs are Sailors and Marines temporarily assigned to work on the mess decks from every different division and platoon. Finding the right leadership style is essential to managing so many different personalities and backgrounds. “You have a lot of different people from a lot of different divisions who are used to all sorts of leadership styles and expectations; it’s challenging
to juggle those expectations,” Ramsey said. “The schedule is one of the toughest parts. Last minute changes can be really challenging – you might have to extend lunch hours on short notice, or start breakfast an hour early to make sure that people are getting the nourishment they need to do their jobs.” For Ramsey, supervising such a diverse group of Sailors and Marines while tailoring meal times to accommodate the ship’s busy schedule is no easy feat, especially when there are more than 700 mouths to feed. “I want to make sure my people know I’m approachable,” Ramsey said. “No one wants to work for someone they feel they can’t talk to. They know there’s a line where they respect the pay grade, but they also know I have no problem getting my hands dirty and helping them out.” It’s teamwork that keeps everything running smoothly from the early hours of the morning ‘til the last watch-

standers have dinner. They are up to make sure breakfast is ready by 6 a.m., and stay after dinner ends at 6 p.m. to clean up and get ready to serve the night crew at 11 p.m. “Petty Officer 1st Class Ramsey will jump right in and wash dishes or mop a floor with us if we have to run out for a minute,” FSA Petty Officer 3rd Class Tyler Robles said. Unlike any restaurant, no matter how well the team prepares, they always face the confines of life at sea. There is only so much space to eat, and
only so much space to store supplies. “You want to make sure everyone has enough time to eat and get some down time and relax, but you have to balance that with space issues,” Ramsey said. “Our mess decks are not all that large compared to the size of the full crew we deploy with.” While the job requires
also correcting Sailors’ and Marines’ behavior at times, Ramsey strives to do it in a positive way. “He always says ‘hi’ to everyone as they come through the line,” Robles said. “Just because he has to enforce uniform and grooming regulations doesn’t mean that he isn’t nice. He checks in with everyone and makes sure that they’re doing OK” The job is not without its perks, however. “You’re guaranteed to see everyone and see how their day is going,” Ramsey said. “It’s not a glamorous job, but it’s a necessary one.”

NEWS FROM NAS OCEANA Natalie Brown and Javier Perez, paramedics and Street Smart presenters, enact rescue procedures for car crash victims on volunteers during “Street Smart”, a Stay Alive From Education (S.A.F.E) presentation at NAS Oceana’s base theater. The event is designed to discuss the importance of drivers making responsible decisions concerning their safety and the dangers they face behind the wheel and on the road.
NAS OCEANA REMINDS SAILORS TO DRIVE SAFELY save the lives of individuals who have made poor choices when it comes to drinking or using drugs, texting and driving, and the non-compliance of seat belts. The paramedics lead a discussion on the importance of making responsible decisions concerning driving and vehicle safety. “We are here to impress upon the service members, that their decisions have reallife consequences. These decisions may not only affect and endanger their life but the lives of their passengers and everyone on else the road,” paramedic and Street Smart presenter Natalie Brown said. “We are here to remind everyone of the dangers they can face on the road, the consequences of poor decisionmaking, and how to think before driving and remaining vigilant when behind the wheel.” One of the main focuses of the Street Smart presentation was distracted driving, which is driving while doing another activity that takes your attention away from driving. Distracted driving can increase the chance of a motor vehicle crash. There are three main types of distraction: Visual, such as taking your eyes

Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana provided its Sailors and marines a “Street Smart” program presentation at the base theater. Street Smart, a Stay Alive From Education (S.A.F.E) presentation taught by certified firefighters and paramedics, is designed to discuss the importance of Sailors making responsible decisions concerning their safety and the dangers they face behind the wheel and on the road. S.A.F.E. is a non-profit organization dedicated to making young adults aware of the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, texting and emailing while driving, not wearing seatbelts, and the trauma associated with these dangers. The goal of S.A.F.E. is to offer information that will allow the audience to make rational decisions concerning their safety and well-being. The “Street Smart” program, featuring photos and descriptions of real-life trauma incidents, takes the audience into the real-life drama experienced by firefighter/ paramedics as they work to

off the road; Manual, such as taking your hands off the wheel; and Cognitive, such as taking your mind off of driving. “Sailors need to think about their actions on the road prior to starting their drive and to continue to follow operational risk management (ORM) throughout their trip,” NAS Oceana Commanding Officer Capt. Rich Meadows said. “With all the technology and distractions facing Sailors on the road today, it can be hard to realize the danger they’re in. As leadership, it’s our job to reach out to our Sailors and get them thinking about applying ORM in everything they do, on and off duty.” Distracted driving activities include things like using a cell phone, texting, and eating. Using in-vehicle technologies (such as navigation systems) can also be sources of distraction. While any of these distractions can endanger the driver and others, texting while driving is
especially dangerous because it combines all three types of distraction. According to S.A.F.E., 3,331 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 3,267 in 2010. An additional, 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver in 2011, compared to 416,000 people injured in 2010. Another main concern expressed during the presentation was driving impaired. Consuming alcohol prior to driving greatly increases the risk of car accidents, highway injuries, and vehicular deaths. Being convicted of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can impact your life in ways you may not be aware of, including loss of employment, prevention of employment in certain jobs, higher insurance rates, serious financial setbacks, personal and family embarrassment, and possible incarceration.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), 9,967 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes in 2014, accounting for nearly one-third of all traffic-related deaths in the United States. At all levels of blood alcohol concentration (BAC), the risk of being involved in a crash is greater for young people than for older people. Among drivers with BAC levels of 0.08 percent or higher involved in fatal crashes in 2014, three out of every 10 were between 21 and 24 years of age. The next two largest groups were ages 25 to 34 at 29 percent and 35 to 44 at 24 percent. “The greater the amount of alcohol consumed, the more likely a person is to be involved in an accident,” Brown said. “When alcohol is consumed, many of the skills that safe driving requires, such as judgment, concentration, comprehension, coordination, visual acuity, and reaction time become impaired.
The consequences of driving while impaired are far reaching, and the effects impact not only impaired drivers, but many others.” “In addition to making the right decisions before getting behind the wheel, make sure you keep your situational awareness high with concern to other drivers, you can’t assume that other drivers on the road have made the same smart decisions or have the same skill level as you,” Meadows said. “Other aspects of situational awareness is knowing the weather conditions you will be driving in and the presence of any road hazards, make sure you’ve got eight hours of rest, give yourself plenty of time to get to and from your destination, leave plenty of time in case there is a mishap, carry emergency kits, blankets, and slow down for the circumstances that you’ll be driving in. Get to where you’re going safely because we need you to come back.”

USS Wasp completes deployment, ready for Japan From USS Wasp Public Affairs ATLANTIC OCEAN
The amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD 1) completed the final portion of its first deployment in 12 years when it finished offloading the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), Dec. 22. She returned to her homeport of Naval Station Norfolk on Dec. 24. While deployed, Wasp’s crew completed a certification validation (CV) enabling the ship to forward deploy to Sasebo, Japan, next year. The rotation is the latest move in the Navy’s ongoing Pacific rebalance. “This crew did their jobs in amazing fashion during this deployment,” Wasp Commanding Officer Capt. Andrew Smith said. “They often had to do deployment certification drills part of the day and fight ISIL the other. Not to mention, we simultaneously carried out the massive day-to-day operations that are required to run a deployed Navy warship.” CVs are designed to support deployment certification extensions when necessary. They include a comprehensive assessment of most mission areas to make sure a ship is ready to get underway quickly. “We do certification validations on the rare occasion that a ship needs to get underway
within a short time frame after deployment for events such as re-deployment,” Afloat Training Group (ATG) Tactical Mentor Lt. Cmdr. Michael Myers said. “The fact that we completed CV testing phases while the ship was also doing real-world operations is unprecedented both for a ship and for ATG. We had to de-conflict with replenishments-at-sea, flight operations, and normal ship operations.” Areas tested during the CV included navigation, seamanship, communications, explosive safety, search-and-rescue plotting, engineering, and damage control. “We went at least 14 weeks at a minimum of 14-20 hour days,” Master-at-Arms 1st Class Jeffery Martinez said. “My crew is exhausted, but at the end of the day we passed, we got our recertification done. It required a lot of work and a lot of effort by my crew to get the job done and I’m very proud of them. Now it’s time to go home and get some time off, some well-deserved liberty earned by everybody.” A large portion of the drills was completed while the crew was simultaneously carrying out Operation Odyssey Lightning (OOL). On Aug. 1 the 22nd MEU was ordered carry to out precision air strikes against ISIL targets in Sirte, Libya, in support of the Government of National Accord (GNA) forces fighting there.
Lt. j.g. Michael Torres The amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD 1) transits the Mediterranean Sea, Dec. 3, 2016. Wasp is deployed with the Wasp Amphibious Ready Group to support maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility. An AV-8B Harrier from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) launches off the flight deck of the amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD 1). Wasp is deployed as part of the Wasp Amphibious Ready Group, which is offloading the 22nd MEU after completing a six-month deployment to the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility.
MCSN Levingston Lewis
Wasp was initially on station supporting OOL for 100 consecutive days before being relieved by the amphibious transport dock ship USS San Antonio (LPD 17), another ship in the Wasp Amphibious Ready Group (ARG). “It’s amazing to see what the American Sailor can do,” Wasp Command Master Chief Gregory Carlson said. “I think it was amazing that we not only focused on com-
bat operations but also focus on our own training repetition. Whether it was damage control, force protection, or the IT training done for radio, it’s nice to go back to basics and make sure we can execute the core fundamentals of the ship.” On Dec. 6 GNA-aligned forces claimed liberation of the city. “I’m very humbled by what we’ve been able to accom-

plish,” Carlson continued. “I have an overwhelming sense of gratitude for what these Sailors and Marines have done.” Over the course of the 180day deployment, Wasp transited more than 34,000 nautical miles and logged more than 14,300 flight hours. The crew also took on more than 1,280 pallets of cargo during 18 replenishment-at-sea evolutions.
Additionally, Wasp, Amphibious Squadron Six (PHIBRON Six), and the 22nd MEU took part in Exercise African Sea Lion, a bi-lateral cooperation exercise with the Moroccan Royal Navy, and supported maritime security operations in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.

T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the ship, culinary specialists were busy cooking dish after dish. For two weeks, they planned a feast of typical holiday fare such as turkey, ham, green bean casserole and desserts so Sailors on duty could enjoy a holiday feast on Christmas Day. Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) invited their families aboard to partake in the Christmas meal. “It’s hard being away from family, especially during the holidays,” Culinary Specialist 1st Class Anthony Scott said. “I think the dinner affected the Sailors morale greatly.” Having duty on Christmas Day may not be ideal, but Sailors had the opportunity to celebrate together. “It was a really good idea for the Sailors that had to be on duty,” Culinary Specialist Seaman Amber Elbert said. “It gave them something to do while they were stuck on the ship. They were still able to spend time with their family.” Children, spouses, and parents were able to tour the ship, eat, and spend time with their Sailors.

“It was nice seeing the other Sailor’s kids enjoy themselves,” Seaman Unique Paschal said. “I actually wore an elf hat and we played holiday music. I wanted to help people feel like they were having a good holiday with their family.” The mess decks were adorned with a Christmas tree, festive lights
and silver centerpieces for the tables. “The decorations were really nice,” Paschal said. “I helped with setting up, decorating and putting candy on the tables.” Each year, George Washington’s food service team hosts special meals for holidays – like Easter,
Thanksgiving and Christmas – to help Sailors on board celebrate the occasion, whether the ship is deployed or in port. For more news from USS George Washington (CVN 73), visit www. navy.mil/local/cvn73/.

The strike group’s support of Operation Inherent Resolve, Operation Odyssey Resolve and Operation Oaken Steel was integral to each mission’s success. While conducting operations in the Red Sea and Bab al-Mandeb Strait, USS Mason defended itself and other U.S. ships from multiple inbound anti-ship cruise missiles during the week of Oct. 9. In response to these threats, Sailors aboard Nitze swiftly carried out a defensive Tomahawk strike against three radar sites on the Yemeni coast. These combined actions reduced adversary capabilities in this strategic maritime chokepoint and helped ensure continued free-flow of commerce throughout the region.

Pride runs deep: A 35-year legacy, saying farewell to USS San Francisco By MC1 Derek Stroop Submarine Squadron 11 Public Affairs SAN DIEGO
She was disheveled, ragged, and covered with dirt from the rough industrial environment. Like a child who had not even taken its first steps yet, she grew and took shape inside her berth through harsh weather and long days, recalled Machinist’s Mate 1st Class Bob MacPhereson, a plankowner of USS San Francisco (SSN 711). Over a long and, some would say miraculous, service life of 35-years, Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine USS San Francisco (SSN 711) has seen the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, much like any vessel in the fleet. Each crew has cherished memories of sailing her across the globe – from her original crew in 1979 to her final crew in 2016. On Oct. 27, 1979, Lucille Werner Kaufman smashed a ceremonial bottle of champagne over the bow of San Francisco during the launching ceremony, offi-
cially christening the new submarine. With an overall length of 362 feet, a beam of 33 feet and displacement of 6,900 tons, San Francisco was the most state-of-the-art and fastest submarine to date. With the motto of “Gold in Peace, Iron in War,” her mission was anti-submarine warfare. Underwater stealth paired with powerful weaponry made her a deadly force against enemy submarines and surface combatants alike. “You represent the cutting edge in any conflict we may enter,” Vice Adm. Robert Y. Kaufman said, then the director of command and control for the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations and principal speaker at the launching ceremony. “In any future competition of naval forces – that which we call war or battle – in that kind of ‘World Series,’ you are our designated hitter.” Eighteen months later on April 24, 1981, San Francisco was commissioned » See SSN711 | B7

The Allen special Barber makes sure USS Porter crew members feel welcome and get more than just a haircut By MCSN Ford Williams NPASE East MEDITERRANEAN SEA
MCSN Ford Williams Ship’s Serviceman Seaman Devonta Allen works aboard the USS Porter (DDG 78).
For most, going to the barbershop isn’t an out of the ordinary experience. Day in and day out, service members trek to the barbershop to stay within Navy grooming regulations. However, any crewmember aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS Porter (DDG 78) can tell you their visit to the barbershop was the highlight of their day. The shop stands out like a small oasis
amongst the grey of the ship. Featuring a red-and-blue striped barber’s pole, the shop draws the attention of all passersby. Stepping in, you can quickly recognize the barbershop scent of aftershave as classic hip-hop music plays in the background. It could be easy for someone to forget they are on the ship.

From TRICARE FALLS CHURCH, VA.
Some children and adults have trouble saying certain sounds or words. Not only will speech and language disorders – such as articulation disorders, fluency disorders, voice disorders and language disorders –make it difficult to speak clearly, other conditions such as hearing impairments, cleft or lip palate, autism spectrum disorder or breathing and swallowing disorders could also affect one’s speech. If your child has a lisp, stutters, speaks in a mumbling or nasally way, or if they have a hard time putting words together to express their thoughts successfully, they may benefit from speech therapy. Participating in speech therapy is a great way to learn to speak more clearly. TRICARE covers speech therapy to treat speech, language and voice dysfunctions resulting from birth defects, disease, injury, hearing loss and pervasive developmental dis-
orders. You’ll need to have a referral or prescription to get speech therapy services. Contact your primary care manager if using TRICARE Prime or your family provider if using TRICARE Standard and Extra. Speech therapy services are separate from any other services your child may be getting through the Extended Care Health Option, Autism Care Demonstration or any other special program. It requires a separate referral and authorization. If you get speech therapy without a referral, you may pay more out-of-pocket. TRICARE doesn’t cover speech therapy services for disorders resulting from occupational or educational deficits, myofunctional or tongue thrust therapy, videofluroscopy evaluation, maintenance therapy that doesn’t require a skilled level after a therapy program has been designed or special education services from a public educational agency to beneficiaries age 3-21.

“I booked three nights in a one-room cabin in Woodstock, Vermont, with two queen beds, a fireplace and an air mattress!” my husband Francis bellowed excitedly, after searching for a last-minute excursion for our family during the long holiday break. After two tours in Europe, our three kids were accustomed to these spontaneous trips, otherwise known as “forced family fun.” We found our cabin nestled among the snowy Green Mountains of Vermont, which looked like a Currier and Ives lithograph. Sturdy barns decorated with boughs of fresh pine, stone farmhouses puffing smoke from chimneys, covered bridges over cold mountain streams, and horse-drawn sleighs. We arrived with just enough time to explore the town and bed down for the night. Francis heroically agreed to take the air mattress, which he wedged between the two beds. The room fell silent, except for an occasional whistle of wind coming through the cabin window, cracked to counteract heat from the fire’s dying embers. But soon, heavy breathing emanated from Francis’ spot. We all fidgeted with pillows to shield our ears. Ten minutes later, the sound progressed to a low grumble, and within 20 minutes, it was a legitimate snore, growing sharper with each exhale. After 23 years of marriage, I knew that Francis thought snoring was his God-given right, and my wifely duty to endure. If I nudged him gently and whispered, “Hon, roll over, you’re snoring,” he

would not be apologetic. He would “tsk” loudly to show his annoyance at being disturbed. But I had to act, knowing grouchy teenagers are far worse than annoyed husbands. I reached down to give the air mattress a jiggle. After a loud snort, the snoring ceased, only to resume in earnest one minute later. This cycle went on for what seemed like hours. I heard the kids’ sheets rustling and several exasperated sighs. At one point, someone uttered, “Are you kidding me?” I lost consciousness sometime after midnight, but awoke when I saw Lilly getting out of bed. “Mom, I haven’t slept all night!” she cried in desperation. At that point, I knew I had to keep a constant vigil. Tiptoeing in the dark, I found a fan in the closet, and despite the winter chill, set it to high to drown out the racket. I lay down, leaving my bare leg dangling from the side of the bed to kick Francis’ mattress as needed. For three hours, I repeatedly swung my chilly foot through the night air to interrupt the snoring. Around 6 a.m., I passed out, before Francis woke us all for the free breakfast at the lodge. “What an awful night,” I complained, slumping out of bed. “Tell me about it,” Francis snapped. “Dad, are you serious?!” Anna choked out, astonished.
What seemed like a scene from “Dawn of the Living Dead” ended up being so funny, it restored our trip to “forced family fun” status. “What?” Francis huffed, incredulously. Over breakfast, the kids gave an hour-by-hour account of our hellish ordeal, in hopes of convincing Francis that he was not the victim. Our youngest, Lilly, dropped the final bombshell, when she produced a series of time-stamped videoselfies she took on her smartphone in the middle of the night. In the recordings, Lilly tried in vain to ignore the obvious snoring in the background. She tossed and turned, smashed pillows against her ears, and gritted her teeth. Finally, around 3 a.m., she began to cry. Unable to ignore the overwhelming evidence against him, Francis burst out laughing while watching tears drip from Lilly’s nose. Deliriously, we laughed too. That afternoon, while wandering aimlessly through idyllic Woodstock like zombies, we stopped in the general store to get a pharmacist’s advice before enduring a

second sleepless night. While he rang up $30 worth of sleep aids, ear plugs, breathing strips and nose spray, he bestowed a little secret: “Oh and everyone except your husband should drink heavily.” Rather than violate underage drinking laws, we placed Francis’ air mattress halfway inside the cabin closet, and with the pharmacy items, the fan, and our own sheer exhaustion, we slept so soundly, I had sheet marks imbedded in my face until lunchtime the next day. What seemed like a scene from “Dawn of the Living Dead” ended up being so funny, it restored our trip to “forced family fun” status.

Quartermasters: The guiding horizon By MCSN Cody M. Deccio USS Nimitz Public Affairs BREMERTON, WASH.
What does lineage mean to you? What do you know of your family history? Did its past live alongside records in a great war? Or perhaps it was chronicled as part of some great voyage. What if your family history was one as old as time itself? The term, “quartermaster” goes back centuries, but its practices date back eons. Over millennia, generation after generation has used trial and error, and innovation brought forward by necessity to shape the art-like science that is nautical navigation. As time progressed, the pillar of efficiency and accuracy has been erected taller, but the foundation on which it stands remains petrified in salt, cemented as a symbol of its humble beginning. Since the formation of the United States Navy in 1775, the improvements made to the capabilities of the quartermaster, and their ability to navigate the sea, has made nautical voyage more accurate and precise than ever before while still maintaining the methods used for centuries. Long before the days of metal hulls and turbine-driven propulsion, Sailors worked to develop a means of accurate navigation through vital waterways and open ocean. Without the electricity or satellite communication of today, they had to utilize nature, human intuition and fundamental mathematics. Navigational techniques utilizing celestial objects, land markers and chart displays, were the primary means of determining course and locations up until the past quarter-century.
“I’ve seen the tools and techniques we use to navigate change just in the 21 years I’ve been in the Navy,” the leading chief petty officer of the USS Nimitz’s (CVN 68) Navigation Department Senior Chief Petty Officer Matthew Searer said. “When I first came in, celestial navigation is all I did. I would use a marine sextant and just the stars, the moon, the sun and algebra to do what global positioning system (GPS) does now.” The past couple decades have seen the rise of GPS navigational programs. Coupled with other modern technology, accurate nautical navigation has become quicker than ever before. “Today we primarily use voyage management system (VMS),” Searer said. “It’s a computer navigation system that takes in GPS and gyro inputs to provide an electronic navigational chart. A majority of navigation is done through mathematical equations and VMS is able to do that for us very quickly. This system allows us to compute accurate coordinates very quickly, while at the same time eliminating the huge amount of paper we previously needed to print navigational charts.” Innovation has simplified many complex processes and made it easier for humans to accomplish what would have been dangerous and almost impossible centuries earlier. While these tools are very useful and give navigators a step up, there is a resurgence of tried and tested techniques from the past. “In the world we live in today where technology, especially in the field of electronics, is changing so rapidly, we need to keep in mind how susceptible our tools are,” Searer said. “Today, countries are developing technology that can tap into our GPS and it’s obviously a

huge issue if your enemy knows exactly where you are. While there are strategic reasons why it’s important to maintain trained navigators, there are also safety reasons. “There are times during crucial evolutions like underway replenishments, or special anchor detail when there would be catastrophic consequences if our computer systems gave out,” Nimitz’ Navigation Department’s assistant leading petty officer Petty Officer 1st Class Jonathan Baker said. “VMS provides a great cruise control for our ship, but it can’t adapt and make split second decisions. That’s why the human element is still so important even though we have electronics.” If you look at the past and present of navigation you will find they have a distinct difference in the utilization of GPS and other electronic instruments. Look a little closer though and you will find they still have much in common. The mathematics and key fundamentals that make navigation possible are still very much the same. The tools we use today are

a powerful asset that allows us to navigate accurately and seamlessly, but every navigator is still responsible for learning the basics of being able to manually chart the sea. While the methods for navigation have been subject to change, the fundamentals still keep Sailors anchored to our past. The future will always incorporate innova-
tion, but naval traditions keep history very much alive. Since the inception of the United States Navy, the quartermaster has been at the forefront of navigation, paving the way for those to come, preserving a naval lineage rich in tradition and honor.

Chief of Naval Personnel visits Sailors in Hawaii and San Diego
From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs PEARL HARBOR, HAWAII
This week, the Navy’s top personnel officer is visiting Sailors in Hawaii and San Diego to discuss Sailor 2025 and some of the Navy’s other personnel initiatives. While in Hawaii, Vice Adm. Robert Burke and Fleet Master Chief April Beldo will meet with Sailors at Pearl Harbor and Kaneohe Bay, and in San Diego, they will visit Naval Air Station North Island and Naval Base San Diego. “We have done a lot of work on Sailor 2025 over the past year, and it’s important that we meet with Sailors to let them know we’re working on their behalf as we modernize and improve the Navy’s personnel system,” Burke said. “As we Sue Krawczyk continue to improve our perChief of Naval Personnel Robert P.

US Ambassador reaffirms ROK, US alliance during visit to Busan
From U.S. Naval Forces Korea Public Affairs BUSAN, REPUBLIC OF KOREA
U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Korea (ROK), the Honorable Mark Lippert, reaffirmed the strength and resolve of the ROK and U.S. alliance during a visit to the ROK fleet base in Busan. During the visit, Lippert, who was appointed October 2014, took the time to thank more than 150 ROK and U.S. naval personnel for their combined service and support of regional security. “I am often asked about the state of the alliance, and I am here to tell you that the alliance has never been as strong as it is today,” Lippert said. “You are working together every day, doing hard things with increasing difficulty and achieving great results.” Before Lippert spoke,
Commander of ROK fleet Vice Adm. Jung, Jin-seop presented Lippert with an honorary commissioning to admiral in the ROK navy for his tireless devotion to naval development and his support of maritime security. This ceremony marked only the 19th time the ROK navy has bestowed the honor. “He has been a strong friend to the ROK navy,” Jung said of Lippert. “He has served the U.S. and our alliance with great honor and pride.” Lippert also received a scroll of appreciation signed by ROK Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Um, Hyunsung, as well Commander of U.S. Naval Forces Korea Rear. Adm. Brad Cooper, Jung and senior leaders of the ROK navy. “We [ROK and U.S. navies] enjoyed a clear and distinct friendship with Ambassador Lippert and the en-
tire embassy team,” Cooper said. “The accomplishments achieved during his tenure will have a lasting impact on not just the naval partnership, but the greater alliance for years to come.” Lippert concluded his remarks by saying the strength of the partnership is the relationship forged between the ROK and U.S. people. “Change is inevitable,” Lippert said, “but what is lasting are the bonds of our people and that bond is as strong as it has ever been. Together you have laid a great foundation, so use that to move forward and make this alliance even greater.” For more information about Ambassador Lippert or the U.S. mission to the Republic of Korea, visit www.state.gov/.

Ticonderoga-class guidedmissile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67), in conjunction with Fleet Activities Yokosuka, tried a new method to promote good behavior on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31. Crew members assigned to Shiloh received a text message, sent in an effort to continue the U.S. 7th Fleet initiative to “do your part” in building and maintaining good relations with Japan partners and positive liberty behavior. The message read, “Happy New Year’s Shiloh Hornets! Congrats on an impressive 2016! We wish you a safe and fun celebration tonight. If you are drinking, Don’t drive. Make the responsible
decision and call the CDO [command duty officer] or taxi. Please look out for your ‘shipmates’, even if they’re from another CTF70 command, and get them and yourselves home safely. You have worked so hard and deserve everything you’ve earned. The Shiloh Team needs you more than ever in 2017 and we are all looking forward to your safe return. Again, Happy New Year!” Kurt Dunaway, an information technology systems engineer at CFAY, led the effort to get the message out to the Shiloh crew on New Year’s Eve. He input all phone numbers of the crew into the Emergency Operation Center’s (EOC) AtHoc Computer Desktop Notification System (CDNS) in order to reach everyone at once.

efforts. Hearing from Sailors is the number one way we can make our policies and systems better.” This trip marks Burke’s first visit to the Pacific as CNP. “From the South China Sea to the shores of California, Sailors in the Pacific are doing extraordinary work 24/7/365,” Burke said. “They are conducting operations where it matters and also providing us with valuable Fleet input and perspective on a variety of personnel policies and issues, as evidenced by the Pacific Fleet Rating Modernization Operational Planning Team (OPT).” For Beldo, this is the last time she’ll travel to visit with Sailors before retiring later this month after 34 years of naval service. “Talking with Sailors and hearing from them is absolutely vital to the work we do in Washington,” Beldo said. “It has been the privilege of a life-
Today, the Navy released NAVADMIN 004/17 that now allows first-term Sailors on sea duty the ability to elect to extend their expiration of active obligated service (EAOS) to complete their sea duty assignment, known as prescribed sea tour (PST). Here are five things you need to know: 1. Why this is important to the Navy. First-term Sailors make up approximately 60 percent of the Fleet and about half that percentage separate at the end of their first enlistment. This initiative allows first-term Sailors to match their projected rotation date (PRD) with their EAOS and helps alleviate unnecessary gaps at sea. This is designed to help reduce gaps at sea and support Fleet Manning that will be created as the large FY13 enlisted cohort begins to leave sea duty. 2. How this benefits Sailors. First-term Sailors, who elect to extend their enlistments to complete their PST will benefit from additional opportunities to advance and additional opportunities to apply for reenlistment quotas. 3. Eligible Sailors who can apply: Are first-term, rating-designated Sailors (PACT Sailors are not eligible). Must have an EAOS before Jan. 31, 2020, and prior the completion of their PST. Are on Type 2, 3 or 4 Sea Duty as de-
fined in MILPERSMAN 1306-102. Passed their most recent Physical Fitness Assessment. Have no performance mark below 3.0, or an advancement recommendation of “progressing” or “significant problems” in the most recent competitive evaluation. Must be recommended by their Commanding Officer. HYT waiver will be favorably endorsed to allow Sailors to complete their prescribed Sea tour. Eligible Sailors do not need an approved C-WAY quota to take advantage of this opportunity. 4. How do Sailors apply? Those eligible Sailors need to submit a NAVPERS 1306/7 form endorsed by their commanding officer to Navy Personnel Command. Non-nuclear Sailors send their forms to PERS81@navy. mil and nuclear Sailors send theirs to firstname.lastname@example.org both before Feb. 28, 2017, to take advantage of this opportunity. 5. What’s happens next: Sailors’ requests will be approved by either Enlisted Community Management (BUPERS-32) or the Nuclear Program Manager (OPNAV N133). After approval, a members’ servicing personnel office will prepare a Sailors’ enlistment extension. For more information on this opportunity, please read NAVADMIN 004/17.

NAVY COMBAT ART: CAPTURING WHAT THE CAMERA CANNOT By Lt. j.g. Chloe J. Morgan Naval History and Heritage Command, Communication and Outreach Division WASHINGTON
In a historic building at the Washington Navy Yard that once served as, among other things, a munition cartridgecase shop, you will find an art studio through which classical music and bright light reverberate. The space has become comfortable and inspires focus and passion in the two Navy combat artists who work there and who recount in discussion and with the delicate movement of brushes across canvas their most recent naval adventures. For one of those artists, the Naval History and Heritage Commandâ€™s (NHHC) Morgan Wilbur, enthusiasm for recounting moments in the Navyâ€™s history started early. â€œMy dad was a Navy pilot and an artist who has paintings in NHHCâ€™s collection,â€? Wilbur said. â€œHe taught me how to draw and paint. Plus, I grew up in Virginia Beach where I loved to watch Navy ships and aircraft.â€? In 1965, the elder Wilbur, Ted, embarked the James Madison-class ballisticmissile submarine USS Nathanael Greene (SSBN 636) to document the 21st Polaris missile launch with watercolors. Fast forward five decades later, and Tedâ€™s son Morgan was asked to undertake a similar mission. On Nov. 7, 2015, Wilbur was invited by the U.S. Navyâ€™s Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) office to document the test flight of an
unarmed Trident II D5 Missile launched from the Ohioclass ballistic-missile submarine USS Kentucky (SSBN 737) in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California. Aboard the navigation test support ship USNS Waters (T-AGS 45), Wilbur was able to observe the night launch and capture what cameras could not. â€œFor night time operations like this, it is perfect to send an artist to document the event. I knew I could create a painting like this because I have never been able to see something like this photographed due to lighting issues,â€? Wilbur said. â€œBy being there to witness the event in person, I was able to capture the full scope of the launch later in my painting.â€? The painting, completed in 2016, is rich with imagery, illustrating the missileâ€™s ascent to the starry night sky, the light from its rocket engine reflected in the choppy California waters. For the painting, Wilbur chose a perspective off the ship in order to capture the Watersâ€™ involvement in the operation. Mariners will notice that he took care to accurately capture the green starboard running light, and the red and white lights atop the mast telling all vessels in sight that the ship is restricted in her ability to maneuver. â€œI want to get under the surface of whatâ€™s going on and still tell the story because thatâ€™s what we do here, we document and tell the story. With paintings, you have so much leeway and it is up to
MC1 Eric Lockwood Morgan Wilbur, a Navy artist with the Naval History and Heritage Command, paints a scene from his recent deployment aboard the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin (DDG 89), Dec. 28. Wilbur is one of two artists working fulltime for the Navyâ€™s Combat Art Program. The Combat Art Program is part of the Naval History and Heritage Commandâ€™s Navy Art Collection, which collects, documents, preserves and exhibits art that is significant to the history of the Navy.
the artist to organize the elements in there. Sometimes it will be close to what you saw, and other times there will be more editorial liberties,â€? Wilbur said. Navy combat art is documentary. Artistsâ€™ works illustrate the intensity of combat as personally experienced. Unlike the objective camera lens that records the single instant and no more, the artist not only captures instantaneous action, but can fuse earlier moments of the same scene into a compelling image. Observation, insight, elimination of confusing detail and focusing on the essential can all be compressed by the artistâ€™s eye. Sometimes surrealism
takes a prominent role in Wilburâ€™s work. In 2015, he completed a painting inspired by his time spent aboard the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73). The ship was departing Yokosuka, Japan, and Wilbur chose to paint a cloud formation in the shape of a dragon over the carrierâ€™s large deck to symbolize the locationâ€™s role. â€œI see a way forward to impart my experience beyond the visual, beyond the surface details,â€? Wilbur said. â€œAs a Navy artist, you have to strike a balance because you are documenting and you donâ€™t want to get so abstract that people donâ€™t know what they are looking at, but you want the underlying story to show.â€?
Wilbur has traveled overseas to observe Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, with trips to Iraq in 2003, 2005 and 2006. According to Wilbur, those trips had a huge impact on him and his works. â€œThose trips changed the focus of my art to people. I try to make sure to do half of my works on people just because I think those experiences reset the way I look at art,â€? Wilbur said. â€œI am now looking through a different filter and allow myself to include more of what was the real impact of what I saw, rather than just the surface.â€? The Navy Combat Art Program was founded in 1941 because of the insight
and persistence of Griffith Baily Coale, a well-known muralist. Believing that war was imminent and recognizing the value of having competent artists present at the scene of history-making events, Coale convinced top Navy commanders to send him and other artists into the field. The program was revived with two military artists in the Korean War, and in the Vietnam era, the program operated with civilian artists in cooperation with the Salmagundi Art Club of New York. The Navy also began sending artists to cover a broader array of naval activities in addition to combat. Following the merger of the Navy Combat Art Program with the Naval History and Heritage Command, artists have covered naval operations around the globe. The Combat Art Program is part of the Naval History and Heritage Commandâ€™s Navy Art Collection, which collects, documents, preserves and exhibits art that is significant to the history of the Navy. This includes more than 20,000 paintings, prints, drawings and engravings consisting of naval ships, personnel and actions from all eras of U.S. naval history. For more information on the Navy Art Collection, or to learn how you can request a combat artist to cover your commandâ€™s operations, visit NHHCâ€™s online directory.

Getting framed at Bremerton Stylish eyeglasses available at Naval Hospital Bremerton optometry By Douglas H. Stutz Naval Hospital Bremerton Public Affairs BREMERTON, WASH.
Getting framed is now a fashionable, eye-opening experience courtesy of Naval Hospital Bremertonâ€™s Optometry Clinic. Those old jokes about Navy-issue eyeglasses being called â€œbirth controlâ€? are not applicable anymore with a host of new stylish frames available from which to pick and choose. Since the new frames â€“ nine different colors, styles, and sizes â€“ were introduced in October, Optometryâ€™s Optical Support Unit has made 1,124 new pairs of eyeglasses for customers. â€œWe support all service commands throughout the greater Pacific Northwest, from Alaska to Idaho to Washington,â€? Optometry Department head and optometrist Lt. Abbey Nelson said. â€œPeople have been pleasantly surprised, but have also asked if the new frames are real options and if they are in regulations.â€? Optometry has provided 16,436 pairs of eyeglasses over the last year. â€œEveryone has eyes; business is booming,â€? Nelson said. â€œNot only are we providing eyeglasses, weâ€™ve also done a ton of referrals for refractory eye surgery with ophthalmology.â€? She also noted word has gradually filtered out there are new frames available and Sailors are appreciat-
ing the options available to them. â€œStyle and fashion are cyclical, trending nowadays towards larger frames,â€? stated Nelson. â€œWe can give our customers nice options they want to wear and not just cram into the bottom of their seabag.â€? Optometry provides two pairs of serviceable eyewear, including inserts if needed for specific jobs which require such modification. Nelson attested the process is simple for someone to get new eyeglasses, and routinely begins with an eye exam. She recommends patients have their eyes examined every 12-24 months unless their doctor recommends otherwise. An eye exam takes approximately an hour. â€œRoutine vision care should not be an afterthought,â€? Nelson explained. â€œWhen we do an eye exam, we also look at the health of a personâ€™s eye. We stress ocular health exams. Itâ€™s always better to catch things early if there are problems.â€? According to Nelson, the top priority of Optometry is direct support to the fleet. â€œMy main focus [is] to ensure the fleet has what they need, especially operational units,â€? Nelson said. â€œThat we can make eyeglasses definitely helps. We can make them on the spot, unless they are something like bifocal, then weâ€™ll need to send to Naval Ophthalmic Support & Training Activity (NOSTRA) in Virginia to be made.â€? She also noted the Optometry team takes great pride in knowing
when patients leave after their appointment, they are good to go. Most new eyeglasses can be fitted, fabricated, and finalized the same day as the visit. The clinicâ€™s Optical Support Unit (OSU) Optical Fabrication Shop is one of 16 fabrication labs in the Navy, not counting NOSTRA. They fabricate single vision glasses for all eligible active-duty and retired service members who have prescriptions which can be made with the stock lenses. The services the clinic provides even goes beyond eye exams and eyeglasses. The more glasses the OSU fabricates, the more Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, and Marines become operationally ready from a vision standard. The work being done directly impacts the mission readiness of multiple commands across the military spectrum. The fabrication shop is like a high-tech assembly line. Orders which come in follow a strict fabrication process to ensure the highest quality spectacles for every patient. The new frames are then fitted with the necessary lenses. â€œWe definitely have different designs than before for those who need eyeglasses; itâ€™s really nice to offer,â€? Optometry Department leading petty officer Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Brandon Minyard added. â€œThis is a chance to be more stylish.â€? The lenses are then cut, shaped, and placed into the frames. Next, the corpsmen verify the prescrip-

tion of the lenses based on the order and must adhere to very strictly established margins of error or the lenses fall out of standards and must be re-fabricated. After the verification process is complete, the lenses and frames are either shipped to a respective clinic or walked to the front to hand deliver to the patient. â€œThe response to the new frames has been positive,â€? Optometry technician Robert Jai shared. â€œThe first time a patient puts their new pair of eyeglasses on, they go, â€˜I can see!â€™ or if itâ€™s a replacement they go, â€˜Itâ€™s so much clearer without scratches.â€™ A new wearer will remark how much more clearly they can see and how things are much more in focus than before.â€? The clinic cares for all active duty, drilling Navy Reservists, and enrolled beneficiaries with routine
eye exams, physical health assessment and physical eye exams, diabetic eye exams, school vision exams â€“ for age six or greater â€“ and glaucoma screening exams. They also provide refractive surgery screenings for active-duty personnel only, order eyeglasses and gas mask inserts, and handle contact lens prescription renewals. Patients needing to order glasses or needing repair of military glasses do not need appointments and are welcome to walk in during clinic hours. Outside prescriptions are accepted. Specialty medically-necessary contact lenses are handled on a case by case review basis. For more news from Naval Hospital Bremerton, visit http://www. navy.mil/local/nhb/.

When I give somebody a haircut and they look fresh, they go back to their work center and get the ship moving. Let’s say I cut somebody’s hair in deck department and when they go on watch to man the helm, it’s like they make sure the ship doesn’t even rock!”
— Ship’s Serviceman Seaman Devonta Allen
Goal to open his own chain of barbershops
Continued from B1 al Guard to become an auto mechanic so he could provide for his newborn daughter. It wasn’t until he spoke to a Navy recruiter that those plans changed. “A recruiter came into my high school and played a slideshow, and I liked what I was seeing,” he said. “One of the guys that already joined from my school had on a nice uniform and drove a BMW. I asked myself, ‘How did he get that?’” Allen decided to enlist in the Navy, and left for Recruit Training Command on March 25, 2014. After boot camp, Allen went to Meridian, Mississippi, for ship’s serviceman “A” school then received orders to check aboard USS Porter (DDG 78), stationed at Naval Station Norfolk. Shortly after getting to Porter, Allen received news that his father had passed away. “I didn’t know my father until I was 16,” Allen said. “I spent my last year of high school with him and he saw me leave for the Navy. As soon as I came to the ship I heard he passed away. Even though I had only known him for a few years, it was like I had known him forever.” Allen credits the Navy and his shipmates for helping him persevere through that tough time in his life.

“My first job on the ship was the ship’s store operator,” Allen said. “It was cool. It was a job that let you meet everybody and gives everybody a chance to meet you.” After realizing how supportive the crew of the ship was, he felt welcomed to be working alongside them. He wanted to give back for all their help. Eight months later, he found out the ship was go-
ing to be forward-deployed to Naval Station Rota, Spain. Although this meant he was going to be separated from his daughter, Allen never lost ambition to serve alongside his shipmates and provide for his little girl. Once in Rota, the ship’s servicemen were undermanned. Allen found himself not only working as the ship’s store operator, but also in vending and as the ship’s
barber. “The ship didn’t have anyone in the barbershop, so when they threw me in there, I didn’t have any experience,” Allen said. “I was just remembering what my first class tried to teach me before he left. I didn’t want to be a barber at first. I just tried to do what he did. I was terrible, but hey, I just kept going. They sent me to barber school, and I watched a
lot of videos on the internet. The more I worked in the barbershop the better I got. After awhile I thought ‘Man, this stuff is easy!’” Allen found a passion for cutting hair and made it a goal to open up his own chain of barbershops in his hometown of Yazoo City, and in Spain. “It’s a cool feeling to transform somebody’s entire look just by cutting their hair,”
Allen said. “It’s like art, like trying to make a masterpiece. When I’m in the barbershop it feels like I’m by myself, doing my own thing, and I’m able to create something and make someone look decent at the same time.” He also does his best to make the crew feel welcomed and like they are going to get the best haircut ever. “I want people to feel like when they come to me they know they are going to get a good haircut, in regulations. When they get their haircut they feel important. I do a big part in keeping the ship’s morale high.” Allen said when people can look good and maintain their military bearing, morale is high, and the ship is operating at its best. “When I give somebody a haircut and they look fresh, they go back to their work center and get the ship moving. Let’s say I cut somebody’s hair in deck department and when they go on watch to man the helm, it’s like they make sure the ship doesn’t even rock!” Keeping morale high is an important task while being underway. For many Sailors, deployment can be a hard time to stay focused. It’s Sailors like Ship’s Serviceman Seaman Devonta Allen that keep ships motivated and mission ready.
USS San Francisco undergoing conversion to training ship
Continued from B1 in Newport News, Virginia, concluding three years in the Newport News Shipyard. During that time, more than 6,000 employees were directly involved in the construction and testing of the ship. A large book titled “I Built the San Francisco” bears each member’s name and what aspect of construction they were a part of, memorializing their hard work and contributions. “There is a lot of symbolism in the commissioning ceremony of a ship,” the first commanding officer of San Francisco Cmdr. James Marshall said. “Bringing a ship to life by sounding the diving alarm, operating the planes and periscopes, and manning the ship signifies the conversion of the ship from a lifeless piece of metal and equipment to something that is now full of life with a purpose and a mission.” Marshall continued to discuss the crew and the countless hours spent learning the intricacies of the ship, achieving a level of expertise to safely take the ship to sea and complete initial sea trials. In a letter from the former Secretary of the Navy John Lehman to Marshall, he stated “Your ship now begins an active role in the fleet. You and those who serve with you are charged with the heavy responsibility of making San
Francisco a fully effective instrument of sea power in our nation’s defense. May you meet with every success in assuming that responsibility.” Following successful sea trials, she conducted her first namesake visit for San Francisco Fleet Week, November 1981. According to newspaper reports chronicling their visit, the weather was bleak and stormy the morning of their arrival. However, by the time the submarine and her crew passed under the Golden Gate Bridge, they were greeted by a bright sun, blue skies and thousands of residents, tourists, and workers eager to see their arrival. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, former mayor of San Francisco, went aboard to officially welcome the submarine and crew to the city. The ship’s visit would leave a lasting mark with the mayor, in this case, a USS San Francisco bumper sticker “slapped” on Feinstein’s automobile by the supply officer, Ensign John Class. “We have a saying in the submarine community: ‘Pride Runs Deep;’ The pride I have tonight for my country, this city, my ship, and my men can never be equaled,” Marshall said, upon receiving a silver service award from the city. The phrase “Pride Runs Deep” would make headlines across newspapers
and in drawings across the actions of the crew quickly became invaluable to getting city from the visit. the boat safely back to Guam.

“The crew proudly maintains the high standard requisite of a warship bearing the name.” On Oct. 14, San Francisco pulled into San Diego for the last time, officially concluding her final deployment. San Francisco held her final change of command and farewell ceremony Nov. 4 at the submarine piers at Naval Base Point Loma, concluding 35 years of active service. Cmdr. Jeff Juergens, commanding officer of San Francisco from January 2014 to November 2016, was relieved by Capt. Daniel Caldwell, who will lead the ship into the next chapter of her life. “By any measure, the San Francisco has had a stellar career as an operational submarine,” Juergens said. “I’ve been extremely fortunate to be one of the few to command this fine submarine, and especially lucky to get to command San Francisco for the last three years, which have been so successful.” In her 35 years of active service, San Francisco has steamed more than 1.2 million nautical miles, completed more than 1,000 dives and surfaces, and been home to 16 commanding officers and over 1,800 Sailors. Additionally, she has seen over 1,000 enlisted Sailors earn their silver dolphins and over 180 officers earn their gold dolphins.
“In three decades of service, the ship has traveled the world many times over, and after all those miles, she remains in fighting trim,” Commander of Submarine Squadron 11 Capt. Brian Davies said. “She is in as good of shape now as when she left the yards in 1981 – clear evidence of the stewardship of this crew and the crews that have gone before them.” For the ceremony, Feinstein prepared remarks which Lewis Loeven, executive director of the San Francisco Fleet Week Association read, “I am truly pleased to know that my hometown shares its name with such a distinguished vessel. As a United States senator representing the people of California, I thank the commanders and crew of the USS San Francisco both past and present for the service to this nation.” In November, she began her journey to Norfolk to officially deactivate and begin the three-year conversion process to make her a moored training ship. She will continue to serve the fleet for years to come by training the next generation of submariners at the Nuclear Power Training Unit in Charleston, South Carolina.

Protecting our Hampton Roads waterways
Everyone can adopt habits to stop pollution from everyday activities, protect drinking water and recreational resources From NAVFAC MIDLANT Environmental HAMPTON ROADS
Have you ever wondered what you can do to help protect the rivers, streams, and waterways near your home? In addition to serving as our drinking water supplies, these water bodies also provide us with various recreational activities and beautiful scenery. This article is the first of a four-part series to provide you with more information on the common sources of pollution from our everyday activities and, more importantly, habits that you can adopt to prevent this pollution.
Stormwater runoff Stormwater runoff results when rain cannot soak into the ground because of impervious surfaces such as roads and rooftops. Stormwater pollution results when stormwater picks up, carries, and discharges various pollutants into storm drains or ditches, and ultimately into the downstream waterways. Pollutants include items such as pesticides, fertilizers, construction site sediments, pet waste, litter, and other items. Prevention of stormwater pollution is
important to: • Prevent contamination of drinking water sources; • Protect our precious water resources for recreational activities such as fishing, swimming, and boating; • Protect plant and animal habitats; • Preserve the natural beauty of our landscape.
Sanitary vs. drain systems First, it is important to understand the difference between the sanitary system and the storm drain system. The illustration shows how water from our sinks, showers and bathtubs, clothes washing machines, and dish washers all enter the sanitary system via pipes that are connected to a wastewater treatment plant. Pollutants from these waters then are removed by the treatment plant before being discharged. By contrast, stormwater, which runs off our rooftops, driveways, roads, and lawns, enters into the storm drain system and discharges directly to nearby streams, lakes or bays without receiving any treatment. You may have noticed decals near storm drains indicating that the storm drains
flow directly to a nearby waterway. Navy Facilities Engineering Command Mid-Atlantic installs these decals to educate residents and employees of the Navy installations on stormwater pollution prevention.

First of a four-part series This article is part one in a four article-series on everyday habits that residents can adopt to prevent pollution from stormwater runoff and to protect our local waterways. Following parts of this series will be presented in future issues of The Flagship.
Avoiding pollution Common sources of pollution in the stormwater runoff from our lawns include pet waste, fertilizers, pesticides, lawn clippings and leaves, and other substances which may be left uncovered – such as dirt piles, salt piles, paints, oils, etc. In addition, car maintenance activities such as oil changes and car washing can contribute to stormwater pollution when oil and detergent run into the gutter. Remember to collect all used oil and dispose of it properly. When washing a car, it’s better to wash on grass, which filters the contaminants, or to use a commercial car wash. Thanks for reading and be sure to pick up the next issue of The Flagship to read article two in this series which will provide some specific examples of everyday activities to prevent stormwater pollution from automotive, home pool, and lawn care maintenance activities.

into Norfolk. The team is currently retrofitting a storefront in Ghent, at 1902 Colley Ave., and plans to open in March. The vegan-friendly restaurant will take over the lease for Pimento, a short-lived Caribbean Island-inspired restaurant. The bistro has closed, with its windows covered in paper. Pimento owner chef Dorothy Lovell says she is tweaking her business plan with more barbecue-oriented fare and moving into a larger space higher up in the corridor. The new restaurant,
coming to the former Dirty Buffalo spot at 4110 Colley Ave., will be called Dorothy’s BBQ Smokehouse, a concept that won’t overlap as much with her other Ghent restaurant, Island Krave, she says. The idea is to “incorporate island style in the world of barbecue,” Lovell said, adding that the menu will have more familiar cuisine. “This enables me to do that at a much higher level.” The smokehouse, which is expected to open in the same time frame as Town Center Cold Pressed, will have dou-
ble the seating of Pimento. The change may bring more exposure to another small business that got its start in Virginia Beach. Jolly Roasters Coffee Co. will supply the coffee for Town Center Cold Pressed. The two businesses began collaborating at Five Points Community Farm Market. Brenda Jolly, who owns the roaster business with her husband, Casey, said they will provide the barista training for the new restaurant. The Town Center Cold Pressed also will offer soups and sandwiches.

5 easy DIY projects to tackle this winter From Brandpoint HOPKINS, MN.
The winter months are the perfect time to dig in and tackle easy DIY projects for an updated home you’ll enjoy all year long. These five simple home improvement projects are incredibly easy, affordable and can be completed in three hours or less.
Marvelous mirrors Mirror, mirror, on the wall, you’re looking a little shabby. Mirrors are timeless decor options, but the frames can look dated over time. Breathe new life into an old mirror by painting the frame a rich, modern color that pops within the current color scheme. Another idea is to clean the frame and adhere mosaic tiles along the edge for a crafty, custom look.
Handsome hardware Old hardware makes any room look like a relic of yesteryear. A complete replacement can be costly, so instead opt to paint existing hardware. Simply remove and clean to eliminate grime. Then use one of 11 colors of Krylon(R) Premium Metallic, like Pewter Gray or White Copper, to create a lustrous, high-gloss metallic finish in just a few coats. A tip for painting hardware is to use an old egg carton. Turn the egg carton upside down, secure the hardware to the egg cups and spray away!
Dazzling doors Dingy doors can get a stylish update with minimal effort when you add some interesting detailing to the panels. Leftover wallpaper, for example, can be adhered to the panel sections for an eye-catching look. An-

other fun option, especially for kids’ rooms, is to spray paint panels with chalkboard paint. Then kids can customize drawings and messages whenever they’d like with chalk markers.
How to paint wood chairs Wood chairs are a household essential, but because they are used so frequently, they suffer a lot of wear and tear. There’s no need to replace when the finish is dull; just add some colorful pizzazz by painting with Krylon(R) ColorMaster(TM) Paint + Primer spray paint. No primer is needed, plus it dries in 10 minutes or less so you save time. Vivid shades like Gloss Emerald Green and Satin Burgundy are guaranteed to pop. Follow the simple directions below to revamp your own wooden chairs:
Lovely lamps Those old lamps still have a lot of life left in them – they just need a fresh color and finish. Metallic colors are trending for 2017, so add a modern touch to treasured lamps with a fresh coat of spray paint. Use Krylon(R) Shimmer Metallic for some extra shine and shimmer to transform an old lamp into a new statement piece.

The world saw the image – dozens of passengers standing pressed together on the wings of a jetliner floating on New York’s Hudson River. The “Miracle on the Hudson” occurred in winter 2009 when Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger made a death-defying water landing, saving 155 souls on US Airways Flight 1549. The near-disaster unfolded just 100 seconds after takeoff, when a flock of Canada geese struck the Airbus heading to Charlotte, N.C., out of LaGuardia Airport. Both engines immediately lost thrust. “Within the first few seconds, we knew it was gonna be one those events that divides one’s life into before and after,” Sully Sullenberger says in the featurette “The Man Behind the Miracle.” Director Clint Eastwood, 86, continues to be one of Hollywood’s best. He has orchestrated a concise, straightforward thriller starring two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks as the modest and courageous captain, who describes himself as “just a man who was doing his job.” Aaron Eckhart plays the capable first officer, Jeff Skiles, who was at the controls when the birds hit. Laura Linney plays Sully’s wife, Lorraine. Eastwood and screenwriter Todd Komarnicki keep the story to a brisk 96 minutes. The film opens with a horrifying nightmare; Sully dreams that he’s crashing the airliner, shades of 9/11, into the Manhattan skyline. The plot adds drama by looking at how the National Transportation Safety Board built a case against Sully, secondguessing his decision to land in the river. The Blu-ray disc includes three featurettes of interviews and behindthe-scenes footage. Sully and Skiles give a riveting, first-person account of the Jan. 19 flight. “Immediately, I could hear terrible noises and I could smell the burning bird odor from the engines coming into the cabin air,” Sully recalls.

The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, the nation’s oldest, continuously operating cultural institution dedicated solely to American folk art, has announced its plans for its 60th anniversary. It will launch a year-long celebration with a special exhibition at the Winter Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City on Jan. 20-29. The museum’s appearance this year means that the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, which operates the AARFAM, is only the cultural institution in 25 years to be invited twice to present the show’s loan exhibition.
“Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum: Revolution & Evolution” will present ceramics, sculpture, drawings, paintings, fraktur, furniture, weathervanes, utilitarian objects, needlework, quilts, toys and other pieces. Mrs. Rockefeller was one of the early female collectors of folk art, and her collection is nucleus of the museum’s American folk art collection. John D. Rockefeller Jr. established the museum in 1957, using as its core his wife’s collection of 250 objects that she had given the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in 1939. The museum now has more than 7,000 objects dating from the 1720s to the present. “In the six decades since
the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum opened its doors, our collection of American folk art has grown dramatically, providing a breadth and depth that was likely unimagined in 1957,” Ronald L. Hurst, Colonial Williamsburg’s Carlisle H. Humelsine chief curator and vice president for collections, conservation and museums, said in a statement. “The exhibitions and programs planned for 2017 will brilliantly showcase this stunning array of American art in ways that will delight museum goers and honor Mrs. Rockefeller’s pioneering vision.” For more information, visit www.colonialwilliamsburg.com.

Norfolk Admirals take win over Elmira Jackals News Release Norfolk Admirals NORFOLK
Norfolk Admirals (9-20-40) goaltender Brandon Anderson stopped all 30 shots sent his way on Jan. 7, paving the way for a 3-0 victory over the Elmira Jackals (719-5-0). The Admirals scored twice on the power play in the first period with the opener coming from Jaedon Descheneau. Descheneau, who now
has 12 points in 11 games, was the beneficiary of a rebound that originally was placed on net by Brodie Dupont. Dupont’s wraparound attempt was stuffed by Andy Iles, who was making his second start in as many nights, despite turning aside 47 of 50 on Friday for Elmira, but couldn’t stop #74’s put-back attempt. Dupont would later record a second chance power play tally of his own, 4:05
later to be exact. Paul Rodrigues tried to jam one in tight on Iles but had his attempt kicked out with the left pad. Number 7, who now has three consecutive multi-point performances, was there for the slam dunk, advancing Norfolk’s lead to 2-0. In the second period, the red-hot power play continued, courtesy of Dupont once again. Quarterbacking the power play from the center point, the former New York
Rangers draft pick played pitch and catch with Paul Rodrigues before winding up for a one-time blast. Iles had no chance, thus giving the Admirals their third power play goal of the evening just 5:30 into the middle frame. That would be the final tally of the evening as Brandon Anderson of the Admirals was honed in all evening long for Norfolk. Highlighted by a sequence of saves in the third period, it was the
third win of the week for the netminder, who advances to 5-1-0-0 in his still young Admirals tenure. The Admirals hit the road for the first time of 2017 with stops in Greenville and Atlanta over the Jan. 1415 weekend. Following the road trip, the team returns home for five home games during the rest of January against opponents such as the Wheeling Nailers and Adirondack Thunder.

UFC John Moraga has a chance to pull off the victory over Sergio Pettis during the Phoenix special Sunday night show.
Prediction: Joe Lauzon by unanimous decision.
Ben Saunders (-120 even) vs. Court McGee (-120 even) Two UFC veterans will battle it out in what could be a Fight of the Night candidate, as Ben Saunders meets Court McGee on the main card. McGee is a volume striker who lands over five significant strikes per minute with just over 37 percent accuracy. McGee isn’t known for his power, but he can certainly rack up a lot of shots landed over three rounds if given the opportunity. McGee will also mix in takedowns, as he lands over two per 15 minutes in the Octagon. McGee’s constant pressure is typically an asset, but he has to be careful in this fight because Saunders is a very nasty counter striker with deadly knees and elbows in the clinch. Saunders is a very tall, long welterweight who will enjoy a two-inch reach advantage in this fight. Where Saunders has to be careful is not allowing McGee to engage in the clinch and pressure him against the cage, where this fight could turn into a grind. At distance, Saunders can land with speed and accuracy, but his best weapon could be catching McGee when he comes forward with a flurry. Saunders has a deadly Muay Thai clinch and he only needs to land one knee flush on the chin to put anybody away in the UFC welterweight division. Saunders is also well versed on the mat, so he’s not afraid to take chances during exchanges that could result in a takedown from McGee. While McGee could certainly grind out a decision, it’s Saunders’ finishing ability that gives him the edge in this fight. Saunders only
needs to clip McGee one time on the feet to potentially stop him with strikes or transition to his slick submission arsenal to get the tap out on the mat. Prediction: Ben Saunders by TKO, Round 3
