The ideal Navy wife By JJ Swanson jswanson@soundpublishing.com

“We are liaisons between the military and the community, and what the community needs from us,” said Joey Price, President of the Navy Wives Club Kitsap 46. This holiday season the club is moving full steam ahead with too many winter projects to count. The Kitsap County Youth Detention Center, Central Kitsap Fire Department, Alive Shelter, Holly Ridge Center for children with learning disabilities, and YWCA toy drive are just a few of the organizaitons they will help. “I haven’t learned how to say no to a project

Deployed for the holidays Sailors on the USS Stennis make the most of a holiday season away from loved ones By JJ Swanson Jswanson@Sounpublishing,com

Life aboard an aircraft carrier, sometimes called a “floating city” housing more than 5,000 crew members, is bustling. But during long deployments over the holiday season, sailors may feel alone even in such a crowd. Homesickness for families and holiday traditions is common during this time. So to fight off the winter blues, the Stennis Morale Wellness and Recreation office and ombudsmen are

putting together a program of special events and coordinating care packages from home. “The command does not make the care packages. A carrier is so large that it would be impossible to make that many,” said Tina Debow, USS Stennis Ombudsman. However, Debow explained that families often provide more than enough goodies. Anything that can fit into a priority mail-sized box is fair game. The only prohibited items are flammables, illegal substances and pornography. “I’m not at liberty to say how, but there is a screening process for each package,” said Debow. Ombudsmen try to make it easy for families to get these items to the right location in time for pick up for designated mail drops. The exact time of drops to the carrier is sensitive for the security of the crew, but families will receive an email instructing them of

Families are cautioned against putting any package drop information on Facebook or other social media outlets. Holiday care package favorites include photos, hand-written letters, sentimental holiday movies, current magazines, candy, and home-made cookies. Debow warned that families should take note of the ship’s location when sending perishable items.

Ohio reaches 30 Namesake always first Lt. Ed Early Thirty years after its commissioning, USS Ohio (SSGN 726) continues to live up to its motto, “Always First.� Commissioned Nov. 11, 1981, Ohio ushered in a new era of U.S. strategic deterrence as the first submarine designed to carry the Navy’s newest submarine-launched ballistic

missile, the Trident C-4. The Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines were built to endure as the survivable leg of the nation’s strategic forces — not just for the Cold War, but for decades to come. At the start of the 21st century, however, Ohio was called upon to blaze another trail — as the first of four Ohio-class submarines to be converted to guided missile submarines (SSGNs), carrying the Tomahawk Land Attack Missile and special operations personnel and equipment.

Today, Ohio and the 17 other submarines of her class are in service throughout the world’s oceans — performing not just the class’s intended function of deterrence, but also forging a new path in the areas of special operations and global strike. “Ohio’s transformation from a strategic deterrent platform to a front-line submarine is awe-inspiring,� said Capt. Dixon Hicks, commanding officer of Ohio’s Gold crew. “Her capability to put special operations personnel on the beach, or multiple Tomahawks on target at any time, provides our leadership with unlimited options.� Ohio and the second submarine of the class, USS Michigan (SSGN 727), are homeported at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor. They have been forward-deployed to Guam since 2007. Their sister submarines, Kings Bay, Ga.-based USS Florida (SSGN 728) and USS

Georgia (SSGN 729), are similarly forwarddeployed to Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. In their current role, Ohio and her fellow SSGNs stand ready to support U.S. operations around the world, as Florida recently did by launching Tomahawks

during Operation Odyssey Dawn in Libya earlier this year. “In many ways, for many years, USS Ohio has been a trailblazer for the U.S. Navy,� said Rear Adm. Bob Hennegan, commander of Submarine Group 9. “Not only did Ohio set the standard for

strategic deterrence, it took the SSGN concept and made it reality — from PowerPoint to power projection, if you will.� The Ohio-class SSBN was conceived in the early 1970s as an eventual successor to the original

Record numbers for Bangor Turkey Trot New ‘families’ division The weather held out for the 300 runners who lined up for the Turkey Trot at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor on Saturday. The annual 5K and 1 mile race was open to military families, all commands, DoD civilians, retirees, and anyone else with base access and

the need to run. “We had an overwhelming number of pre-registrations. When I heard that snow was forecasted last night, I thought, oh no!� said Julia Krassin, Bangor fitness manager. Of those on the course, a large number were military dependent families

with infants in strollers and kids running alongside their parents. “November is the month of military families, so we made sure there was a new family division included,� said Lisa Bertolacci, event coordinator. While many ran for fun, just as many ran for glory. The Turkey Trot and POW MIA runs are big challenges within the Captain’s Cup champion-

Coast Guard to conduct exercises on Hood Canal By JJ Swanson jswanson@soundpublishing.com

Coast Guard District 13 announced that their Bangor unit is scheduled to conduct tactical, security, and weapons training exercises on Hood Canal. Exercises will commence on Nov. 21, 2011 at 8 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. During the exercise, Maritime Force Protection personnel will fire blank rounds for weapons training. The Coast Guard has assured that blank rounds are not projectiles and no one person will have anything shot at them. However, the live fire and blasts will mimic real engagement. “I doubt that the exercise will be in a location easily viewable by the public, they wouldn’t want to incite any kind of panic in people who didn’t know that it was just a training,� said Petty Officer Eric Chandler, district 13 public affairs officer. Petty Officer Chandler explained that the Coast Guard is careful about revealing the exact location of their security vessels for the protection of their crews.

The specific location of the exercise on Hood Canal could also change depending on weather influence. According to Chandler, vessels may be moving at high speeds during the exercise. The Coast Guard plans to set up a safety zone to ensure that no unauthorized boats wander into the training course unaware during those hours. “The Coast Guard will be making continuous announcements by vhf marine band radio to let people know there are vessels moving at high speeds and to be aware of increased activity. If, for whatever reason, a ship has its radio off, it will be approached by Coast Guard boats,� said Chandler. Coast Guard personnel will also be keeping a close eye on marine mammals in the area. Marine mammal ‘spotters’ have committed to reporting any wildlife activity and stopping the exercise if an animal is compromised. The training is part of the Coast Guard’s regular schedule of exercises to make sure that personnel and equipment is up to date.

PUBLIC NOTICE TO WAVE BROADBAND CUSTOMERS In January, Wave's video and equipment rates will be adjusted to offset a small portion of the increased cost of delivering the services we provide.

Runners take part in the annual Turkey Trot on Naval Base Kitsap Bangor.

ship, an annual competition among the submarine groups. For the last three consecutive years the USS Louisiana (SSBN-743) took the Cup. This year they are hoping for a repeat. However, the first person to cross the finish line, was a runner with no eye on the Cup. Ian Christen, a North Kitsap High School student, took the 5K with a time of 18:09. “I may have done this race when I was younger, but this is my first year competing for the 5K,� said Christen. After the race, runners assembled indoors for prizes which included medals, turkeys, and pies. “They’ve got to chase their Thanksgiving dinner,� said Krassin.

Navy families need Thanksgiving aid Naval Base Kitsap Bangor is holding its own Thanksgiving basket drive especially for active duty families who are hurting this holiday season. This year there have been many more requests than baskets available, and families are in ‘desperate need,’ according to the USS Maine message boards.

The Chaplain’s office is asking for military families to pitch in and help collect turkeys and hams to fill out the food baskets. To date, there are 30 complete baskets ready for distribution. Active duty families who need a Thanksgiving basket may sign up by calling the Chapel at (360)396-6005.

It’s a start Tuesday’s Senate passage of the “Vow to Hire Heroes Act” is a step in the right direction to cover the many implied promises of enlistment and fighting in service of the nation’s goals and security. The act seeks to remedy the unemployment rate among returning veterans as 11.5 percent, which is about equal to the general population. One in 10 of American veterans returning from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq is currently without work. The proximity of the act’s passage in the Senate by a 95-0 vote, which occurred on Nov. 10, shows the current political value of the growing stateside veteran population as hundreds of thousands of service members transition into the life of a civilian during the continued down economy. With nearly 1 million out of work, the veteran vote will loom large on the federal and state levels in the 2012 election. For the first time in decades vets will hold REG the power of a common need and solid KINNER numbers – all in relation to veterans benefits which are constantly threatened as “entitlement programs.” This act, which was signed into law Monday, provides more civilian job searching training for exiting service members, smoothes federal job applications, increases G.I. Bill funding for all veterans and gives tax credits up to $5,600 for hiring returning veterans that have been out of work for more than six months – $9,600 if they are disabled. Where the act falls short and fails to achieve at the same level American service members do everyday on the job as the strongarm of American capitalism is in one area, the act mostly covers post 9/11 veterans and does less for the millions of previous eras. Murray touts the bill as coming from two August Recess “listening sessions” with Washington state veterans, most of which are pre 9/11 veterans from four previous wars. With the inclusion of job and training assistance for veterans of earlier eras Murray has begun to bridge the gap from political patriotism to the reality of U.S. government’s responsibility to all of its war veterans since the turn of the 20th century.

Dustin’s change of command brings change As a military dependent for more than 35 years, I have been to many Changes of Command, most of them for my dad. Earlier this month, I attended one for my husband, Dustin. A Change of Command is the Navy’s answer to that awkward moment when one authority is leaving and a new one is stepping in. It’s the passing of a baton, an outward, formal marker for something that can’t really be physically contained and transferred. (Parents and babysitters would do well to have their own mini Change of Command ceremony at the beginning of each babysitting session.)! Dustin’s Change of Command came after three years as commander of Navy Operational Support Center Bangor, Maine, where he was first in charge of a portion of Maine’s naval reserves, and then, after NAS Brunswick closed, responsible for Maine’s entire population of Navy reservists. Dustin’s command also was responsible for all Navy funeral honors in the state of Maine. From the moment he took command, Dustin was keenly aware of his duty to the community, the reservists, many of them being sent individually for deployments all over the world, and the funerals in the region. That’s the kind of man he is. Three years later, he is wiser—and perhaps grayer at the temples—but more importantly, he is in tune with the needs and sacrifices of reservists and their families. As I helped the boys with their ties and dress shirts the morning of the ceremony, I told them how proud

I was of their dad. This was hard for them to hear; the Change of Command, after all, marked the officail end to Dustin’s job here in Maine and the beginning of his yearlong deployment overseas. When I was a kid, I remember feeling like my boys—proud of my dad, excited for the ceremony, but ultimately, anxious and sad about one more change in our

lives. While I’ve anticipated these changes for the last six months, Dustin didn’t have time to. He was more concerned with making sure the transfer of authority was as seamless as possible for his sailors and staff. That’s the kind of leader he is. The ceremony opened with patriotic songs played by the 195th Maine Army band and the Parade of Colors by University of Maine’s Navy ROTC unit. Ford’s fifth grade teacher, Joe Bennett, sang the National Anthem. After the Invocation, our attention was directed toward the stage. I began thinking about the day Dustin told me the Navy was transferring him from Pensacola, Florida, where he was a flight instructor, to Bangor, Maine. “What’s in Bangor, Maine, for a Navy pilot,” I asked. Incidentally, my then new readers in Bangor wanted to know the same thing. Changes of Command, fly overs, men in Navy uniforms stopping at the grocery store to buy a gallon of milk—these things are commonplace where I grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Today in New England, especially after the closing of

Navy picks up San Diego Spice users SAN DIEGO (NNS) – Twenty-eight sailors assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) have recently been involved in investigations for illegally using the designer drug Spice. The use of synthetic drugs in the Navy, to include Spice, is illegal, and the Navy continues to aggressively investigate the use of synthetic drugs and hold those in violation accountable. The 28 sailors have been identified as part of six different investigations throughout the past month. All personnel who have been found to have been using illegal substances will be processed for administrative separation in accordance with Navy policy. Violations of the Navy’s substance abuse policies include use and possession, and sailors will be held accountable and separated if appropriate. “The Navy’s policy on drug abuse is simple and clear - zero tolerance,” Vice Adm. Gerald R. Beaman, commander U.S. 3rd Fleet, reiterated after a similar event occurred in October. “Drug abuse puts lives and missions at risk and undercuts unit readiness and morale.

Letter to the Editor Enactment of a one tenth of one percent sales tax, in our county, might allow us to have a mental health court. There the a delusional nonviolent offender could be promised a clean record in exchange for complying with taking their prescribed meds, and for keeping their appointments with counselors, a psychologist, ARNP or psychiatrist. The importance of meeting with caregivers is that the mentally ill learn how to strengthen their involvement with groups and organizations. Gaining personal relationships is also highly important. Those who enter recovery can led to more education and maybe stable employment. Empowerment, self-advocacy, hope and resiliency are Washington State goals for the mentally ill. More than 30,000 thousand veterans reside in Kitsap County. Certainly, a veterans court will be helpful. Our population in 2000 was 231,969 residents. Can we find a way to help veterans and non-veterans as we have the fondest wishes for both groups? And let’s not forget a supportive apartment or dorm complex for both groups too.

The use of synthetic drugs, to include Spice, is illegal and the Navy continues to aggressively investigate the use of synthetic drugs and hold those in violation accountable.” The Navy has a series of measures in place to educate sailors about the perils of drug use and dependency; to deter them from ruining their professional careers and personal lives by choosing to use drugs; and an aggressive program to detect drugs in the unlikely event a sailor decides to use them. By holding sailors accountable for drug abuse, the Navy better protects

and retains the overwhelming majority of sailors who conduct themselves honorably. The Navy continues to actively investigate suspected illicit and designer drug use and possession. If it is determined that additional sailors have used drugs, those sailors will be held accountable and if appropriate, processed for separation. On March 1, 2011, the United States Drug Enforcement Administration exercised its emergency scheduling authority to control five chemicals used to make Spice and other “fake-pot” type products.

Information dominance leads focus at Navy Now forum WASHINGTON, D.C. (NNS) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The fall 2011 Navy Now forum networking luncheon was held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C., Nov. 17. Director of Program Integration for Information Dominance, Rear Adm. William E. Leigher, the guest speaker for the event, focused on the Navyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current and future endeavors in information dominance and cyber security, and usage of cyberspace as an operational tool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are currently seeing a lot of conversions because handheld devices are allowing for easy access to cyberspace from almost anywhere on the planet,â&#x20AC;? said Leigher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The challenge for us right now is trying

to secure that so we can use these smart devices in our environment, but also look for ways to attack it in a continual way.â&#x20AC;? During a question and answer portion of the luncheon, Leigher touched on many key topics to include increasing awareness of integration of domains, as well as providing Naval forces with the ability for command control and freedom of navigation in cyberspace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look across cyberspace there are a few things that make it unique,â&#x20AC;? said Leigher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We attack and defend on exactly the same platform that our adversaries attack and defend on. You have to understand what that thin line is and make sure that we can assure security

Rear Adm. William E. Leigher, director of program integration for information dominance, speaks about how the U.S. Navy uses information dominance and cyber security during an open forum at the Ronald Reagan Building.

First keel laid down in Zumwalt-class BATH, MAINE (NNS) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The U.S. Navy laid the keel for its first Zumwalt-class destroyer (DDG 1000), Nov. 17, at General Dynamics-Bath Iron Works shipyard in Bath, Maine. While keel laying was once traditionally the formal recognition of the start of the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction, todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advanced modular shipbuilding allows fabrication of the ship to begin months before. However, the keel laying continues to symbolically recognize the joining of the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s components and the ceremonial beginning of the ship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keel laying is just the first of many important milestones and events in bringing Zumwalt

to life,â&#x20AC;? said Capt. Jim Downey, DDG 1000 program manager, Program Executive Office, Ships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the outstanding team we have assembled, I look forward to building on the superb progress weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve achieved to date and delivering this extremely capable warship to the Fleet.â&#x20AC;? The lead ship and class are named in honor of former Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Elmo R. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Budâ&#x20AC;? Zumwalt Jr., who served as chief of naval operations from 1970-1974. The shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cosponsors, Ann Zumwalt, Mouzetta ZumwaltWeathers, and Lt.Col. James G. Zumwalt symbolically authenticated the keel with a plate displaying the initials of

all four children of the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake, including eldest son, the lateElmo R. Zumwalt III. Construction began on DDG 1000 in February 2009, and the Navy and its industry partners have worked to mature the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s design and ready their industrial facilities to build this advanced surface combatant. Zumwalt is currently more than 60 percent complete and scheduled to deliver in fiscal year 2014. Construction on the second ship of the class, Michael Moonsoor (DDG 1001), began March 2010. Designed for sustained operations in the littorals and land attack, the multi-mission DDG 1000 will provide indepen-

dent forward presence and deterrence, support special operations forces, and operate as an integral part of joint and combined expeditionary forces. This warship integrates numerous critical technologies, systems, and principles into a complete warfighting system. These include

employment of optimal manning through human systems integration, improved quality of life, low operations and support costs, multispectral signature reduction, balanced warfighting design, survivability, and adaptability.

As they sort the gloves and socks by size, another group of wives is in charge of assembling parcels of blankets and flip-flops requested by the fire department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winter and people run out of their house [that are on fire], theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re standing on the streets in not much, not even shoes. We asked the fire department what they needed from us, and they said blankets and flip-flops to make these victims more comfortable,â&#x20AC;? said Price. Price, who is a former retail manager, loves meeting supply with demand. When she hears that a group needs something, whether it is flip flops or toothpaste, she

If you send chocolates, they would be a puddle by the time it gets to your sailor,â&#x20AC;? said Debow. In previous years, the Girl Scouts of America have sent the Stennis mass shipments of Christmas cookies according to Lt. Cmdr. Cindy Fields, Stennis public affairs officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are always appreciated. We spread them around the ship the best we can,â&#x20AC;? said Fields. Also appreciated are

letters and drawings made by elementary school students from around the country. The heartwarming thoughts reach sailors who may not have received a care package from home. Some wives get together and send special stockings for their husbandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; entire department. According to Debow, it can be a big task, but for some wives

Marcia Mack and Heidi Todd sort gloves to keep hands warm at the Kitsap Youth detention center. JJ SWANSON/STAFF PHOTO knows how to find it at cost or for free. When the YWCA Alive Shelter for women and children in Bremerton came to the wives with the need for toiletries, Price contacted local dentists to see if they would donate toothbrushes and toothpaste. According to Price, Hampton Inn also gave boxes of hundreds of travel size toiletries for the shelter. Keeping up their pace of community outreach with such a small group sometimes poses a challenge. Most of the wives have jobs, some

it is a great tradition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aircraft deployments are very different. Some wives do find that they prefer the longer ones out rather than three weeks in quick turn around because they have time to adjust to life and get into a routine,â&#x20AC;? said Tom Danaher, public affairs officer for Naval Base Kitsap. On board, there are some special events for sailors looking to get into the holiday spirit.

SMILEY | FROM PAGE 4 NAS Brunswick, there is a Navy vacuum in the region. Besides his new mission as commanding ofďŹ cer and all that that entailed, Dustin made a Navy presence in our new hometown one of his priorities. Campaign Drug Free, and

work 50 hour weeks. In addition, when a Navy family gets transferred to a new duty station, the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s membership declines. In the past, dwindling numbers idled the Bremerton chapter. This year, the club is losing Todd whose family will move to an East Coast duty station in Connecticut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like losing part of your family when one leaves. We are like sisters. We even call each other sister members,â&#x20AC;? said Price. The women are currently mentoring Todd and pushing her to

lead a Navy Wives chapter in Groton. Like the military itself, the Navy Wives Club has a reputation for training women to come out of their shells and assume leadership roles. Sometimes it is trial by fire. Price recalled her first Navy Wives Club meeting, many years ago in Hawaii. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to the meeting hall and nobody came to say hi, so I was standing in the doorway not knowing what to do, and this big woman comes up behind me and says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;look you hussy, get right in there. We have things for you to do!â&#x20AC;? said Price. Price quickly moved through the ranks, and was elected Northwest regional president this year. According to Todd, the club has always been bigger than the support of a shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wardroom or even the Family Readiness Group in terms of what it can offer military spouses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Navy wives focuses on your whole life as opposed to the hand that you are being dealt right now. FRG focuses on what you need right now to get through a deployment, but here itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about becoming a real part of your community, â&#x20AC;&#x153; said Todd.

According to Fields, on Thanksgiving there will be a holiday feast accompanied by a small concert through Navy entertainment who is sending a professional violinist to the carrier operating in the Indian Ocean. There will also be holiday movies featured on the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big screen. Movies for special events are sometimes shown in the hangar bay, picnicstyle with snacks. During Christmas,

the Stennis will port and sailors will have the opportunity to call home by phone and take holiday tours in their port location. All tours are coordinated by Morale Wellness and Recreation who the crew calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;the fun boss.â&#x20AC;? On New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve, there will be a party aboard the ship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t serve alcohol on the ship unless the ship has been at sea for a certain period

without a port visit. Ships can request it if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been without a visit for a number of days, but this year the Stennis wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be getting alcohol,â&#x20AC;? said Fields. In addition to on board festivities, religious services for various beliefs are available through the Stennis chaplain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do what we can to make sure these guys have what they need,â&#x20AC;? said Fields.

Yet, after the Change of Command, Dustin didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to think about what I knew was important work he and the NOSC had done in our area. As the sideboys saluted Dustin out of the ceremony, I knew his mind was already on the new tasks ahead: getting our family ready for the deployment and preparing himself for his new mission. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of officer he is. A week later, I asked Dustin if it was beginning to seem real that he would soon leave me and the kids. I wondered if leaving our youngest, Lindell, would be hardest of all. A year is a long time. Especially for a toddler. When Dustin comes back, Lindell will have outgrown his footed pajamas. He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

call Rite-Aid â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fridays.â&#x20AC;? He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mispronounce Rs like Ls (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plestonâ&#x20AC;?). He will already know the whole alphabet. He might even be reading. SelďŹ shly, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine missing those things. But Dustin said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My absence will impact Lindell most of all. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what worries me. He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand. In three weeks heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll wonder when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m coming back. A year will seem like forever. And it will be hard for him.â&#x20AC;? Always thinking of others and their feelings before himself. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of father Dustin is. Through the years in this column, I probably havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t given you an adequate description of Dustin. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m

usually not at a loss for words, especially when written. Yet, when it comes to explaining Dustin, I ďŹ nd it difďŹ cult to capture his essence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just have to know him,â&#x20AC;? is what I say. So when Rear Admiral Robin Braun, who gave the opening remarks at the Change of Command, described him as having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;winsomeâ&#x20AC;? personality, my eyes brightened. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the word Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been searching for all these years. Winsome. Affable. Charming. Hardworking. Careful. Conscientious. Dedicated. Thoughtful. Warm. Funny. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of person Dustin is.


Obama signs veteran employment law Tax credits for employers that hire post 9/11 vets WASHINGTON (AFPS) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; President Barack Obama delivered a clear message Monday when he signed two new tax credits into law to increase the hiring of military veterans and wounded warriors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For businesses out there, if you are hiring, hire a veteran,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right thing to do for you, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right thing to do for them, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right thing to do for our economy.â&#x20AC;? In August, Obama called on Congress to enact tax credits, included in the American Jobs Act, that will help to get unemployed veterans back to work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve added more than 350,000 private-

sector jobs over the last three months, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got 850,000 veterans who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find work,â&#x20AC;? the president said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And even though the overall unemployment rate came down just a little bit last month, unemployment for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan continued to rise.â&#x20AC;? Obama said â&#x20AC;&#x153;that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t right,â&#x20AC;? and he lauded veterans as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;best that America has to offer.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are some of the most highly trained, highly educated, highly skilled workers that we have,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they can save lives on the battlefield, then they can save a life in an ambulance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they can manage convoys moving tons of

CHECK US OUT ONLINE WWW.USADISCOUNTERS.NET

equipment over dangerous terrain,â&#x20AC;? he continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they can manage a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supply chain. If they can track millions of dollars of assets in Iraq, they can balance the books of any company here in the United States.â&#x20AC;? Obama noted the United States has benefitted â&#x20AC;&#x153;enormouslyâ&#x20AC;? from veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service abroad and would benefit greatly from their service at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why, under my direction, the federal government has already hired more than 120,000 veterans,â&#x20AC;? he said. Obama praised First Lady Michelle Obama and

Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, for their efforts in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joining Forcesâ&#x20AC;? campaign, which has secured pledges from private-sector companies to hire 135,000 more veterans and military spouses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re giving those businesses just one more reason to give veterans a job,â&#x20AC;? he said. The president also credited Congress for the legislation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, because Democrats and Republicans came together, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud to sign those proposals into law,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I urge every business owner out there whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hiring to hire a vet-

eran right away.â&#x20AC;? Obama pledged continued support to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veterans and wounded warriors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So to our veterans, know that we will stand with you as long as it takes for you to find a job,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And to our businesses, let me say again, if you are hiring, hire a veteran.â&#x20AC;? The Returning Heroes Tax Credit provides businesses that hire unemployed veterans with a credit of up to $5,600 per veteran, and the Wounded Warriors Tax Credit offers a credit of $9,600 per veteran for businesses that hire veterans with service-

connected disabilities. Under the Recovery Act, employers who hired certain unemployed veterans were eligible for a tax credit of up to 40 percent of the first $6,000 of wages, for a maximum credit of $2,400 for veterans who had been unemployed at least four weeks. This credit expired at the end of 2010. For employers who hire veterans unemployed for longer than six months, a new credit of 40 percent of the first $14,000 of wages, up to $5,600, will be applied. The Wounded Warrior Tax Credit will double

Bold Alligator, amphibious value in underdeveloped environments NORFOLK (NNS) – Commander, United States Fleet Forces Command hosted the second operational planning team conference at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek/Fort Story, the week of Nov. 14-18 for Exercise Bold Alligator 2012, scheduled to take place during January and February 2012. Bold Alligator 2012 represents the Navy and Marine Corps’ revitalization of the fundamentals of amphibious operations, strengthening their traditional role as fighters from the sea. The focus of BA-12 is based on

the common goal of Navy and Marine Corps leadership to revitalize, refine and strengthen core amphibious competencies, which are critical to maritime power projection and are a cost-effective option for a wide range of military operations. History has shown the capabilities that allow the amphibious force to conduct a forced entry landing against an opposing military force are the same capabilities that make it the force of choice for crisis response and building partnerships. “One of our goals with Bold

Alligator is to demonstrate the capabilities amphibious operations bring to the table to a very large audience,” said Rear Adm. Kevin Scott, commander of Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG 2). “We want to show the value the Navy/ Marine Corps team brings to the Department of Defense and the nation. Another goal is to look at what works and what doesn’t work and build a foundation for the future.” Bold Alligator 2012, to be conducted under the purview of U.S. Fleet Forces Command and U.S. Marine Corps Forces Command, will be largest multinational naval amphibious exercise conducted in the past 10 years. It will focus on the planning and execution of a brigade-sized amphibious assault from a seabase in a medium threat environment. The underlying scenario of this exercise is designed to emphasize the Navy/Marine Corps capabilities in undeveloped and immature theaters of operations. Scott said that after ten years of continuous combat operations ashore, the blue-green team is at

risk of losing vital amphibious assault corporate knowledge. “When we were getting ready to send USS Bataan (LHD 5) over to Libya during Operation Odyssey Dawn, I had the opportunity to meet and speak to a lot of the young Marines who embarked aboard, and I couldn’t find very many of them that had been on a ship before,” said Scott. “It’s the flexibility that the amphibious Navy gives us that we can’t live without. We were on the precipice of losing that corporate knowledge. We have to reinvigorate our tactics, techniques and procedures to align with our current force structure and technical innovations.” According to Brig. Gen. Chris Owens, Commander, 2d Marine Expeditionary Brigade, the Marines are also using BA 12 as a proof of concept to plan what the Marine force of tomorrow will look like. “We’ve gotten very heavy during the last ten years of fighting land wars, so we need to look at lightening our load and take a hard look at what Marines are going to bring to the fight,” said Owens. A leaner, meaner Marine Corps

also allows them to respond rapidly to a variety of missions. “Amphibious forces are kind of like a Swiss Army knife,” said Owens. “We’re able to respond quickly to a variety of situations. Seabasing gives us the ability and the agility to reset quickly after each operation. BA-12 will allow us to explore all these capabilities in a complex but realistic scenario.” Expected to participate in the exercise are an amphibious task force (led by ESG-2) consisting of 10 amphibious ships and four to six combatants; a Marine expeditionary brigade-sized landing force (2d MEB); a carrier strike group (aircraft carrier, embarked air wing and four combatant ships); mine counter measure forces, Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) forces, Military Sealift Command (MSC) ships; coalition force elements from several allies, and other commands in the support of amphibious operations. “Our current fiscal constants have been challenging, but we’ve been able to maximize our resourc-

Donilon: Obama Calls for ‘All-in’ Asia Strategy By Karen Parrish American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON – National Security Advisor Tom Donilon discussed the administration’s “all-in” Asia strategy during a press conference in Indonesia Saturday. Donilon said the president’s weeklong engagements with Asian leaders culminating in the East Asia Summit “is the implementation of a substantial and important reorientation in American global strategy.” The summit has occurred

annually since 2005, with the United States and Russia participating for the first time this year along with Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, the Philippines, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Vietnam, India and China. Donilon noted that from the president’s hosting of the 19th annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders’ meeting in Honolulu through a trip to Canberra and Darwin in Australia and

culminating with the summit in Bali, Obama worked this week with 25 nations “in the fastest-growing economic region in the world,” and attended formal bilateral meetings with 10 countries’ heads of state. A White House fact sheet on the summit noted while the gathering’s traditional agenda includes regional concerns such as education, finance, energy and the environment, Obama called for discussions on security topics including maritime cooperation and nuclear nonproliferation. The president also

pledged support to advance humanitarian assistance and disaster relief in the region. Donilon said the administration has worked for three years on a strategic rebalancing of what officials viewed as an “underweighted” U.S. involvement in Asia. “We set about, through three lines of quite specific work, to address that underweighting,” he said. Donilon outlined those approaches: strengthening alliances and security partnerships; engaging with emerging regional power centers such as China, India

and Indonesia; and participating in and helping to form regional, multilateral economic, diplomatic and security institutions. The president has given “clear guidance” that the United States will allocate the resources to maintain a strong security presence in Asia, Donilon said, in the midst of what he described as a $489 billion spending reduction over 10 years. “With Asia, that means being all in, and doing the things that are required here with the resources that are necessary,” the national

security advisor said. “From our perspective, we’ve been able to positively advance each of the key goals that we had for the course of this trip,” he added. “And I think that’s been in the U.S. interest.” Defense-related announcements during Obama’s Asia trip included an agreement with Australia to establish a rotational deployment of Marines to train with Australian military forces and a transfer and upgrade of 24 Excess Defense Article F-16s to the Indonesian air force.

OHIO | FROM PAGE 2 group of 41 SSBNs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the famed â&#x20AC;&#x153;41 For Freedomâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; commissioned between 1959 and 1967. At 560 feet, the Ohioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s became the largest submarines ever built by the U.S. Navy. Construction on Ohio, the fourth U.S. ship to bear the name, began April 10, 1976, at Groton, Conn., home of General Dynamics Electric Boat. Ohio was launched April 7, 1979 by Annie Glenn, the wife of then-U.S. Sen. John H. Glenn. Ohio officially joined the U.S. Navy on Veterans Day, 1981, at Groton, with Capt. A. K. Thompson Blue crew and Capt. A.F. Campbell, Gold crew, assuming command. During the commissioning ceremony, Vice President George H.W. Bush told the 8,000 guests that the Ohio and her class represented a â&#x20AC;&#x153;new dimension in our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic deterrence.â&#x20AC;? Ohio began her long association with the Pacific Northwest Aug. 12, 1982, when she arrived at Naval Submarine Base Bangor as the first operational unit permanently assigned to Commander, Submarine Group 9. In October 1982, Ohio began

her first strategic deterrent patrol; she would continue to patrol out of Bangor for the next 20 years. With the end of the Cold War, the first four Ohio-class SSBNs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ohio, Michigan, Florida and Georgia â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were scheduled to be decommissioned in the early 2000s. The other 14 would remain in service as SSBNs carrying the Trident II D-5 missile. But another plan was in the works â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to use the versatile Ohio seaframe to carry Tomahawks or other payloads in lieu of ballistic missiles. The result would be four platforms capable of supporting strike or special warfare missions around the world. Under the plan, 22 Trident launch tubes were reconfigured to carry either canisters containing seven Tomahawks each â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for a total of up to 154 missiles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or special operations weapons or equipment. The other two launch tubes were converted to lockout chambers, allowing for the embarkation and deployment of special operations forces such as Navy SEALs. Ohio completed its conversion and rejoined the

fleet on Feb. 7, 2006, at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor. A year later, she proceeded to Guam to begin the first SSGN forward deployment. Today, with 30 years of service in the books, Ohio is as relevant to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense as ever. Its ability to project power and provide forward presence makes Ohio â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and its fellow SSGNs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a key component of our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maritime strategy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My crew fully understands how important they and Ohio are to defending our nation,â&#x20AC;? said Hicks. And Ohio isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done blazing trails. This fall, Ohio is one of four submarines in the class which will welcome the first women assigned to submarines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the 30 years that USS Ohio has been in service, she has led from the front at every turn and continues to live up to our motto of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Always First,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Command Master Chief (SS) Neil Davenport, chief of the boat for Ohioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gold crew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the efforts and the professionalism of the crew that keeps Ohio ready to answer our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call.â&#x20AC;?

Opportunity Tax Credit of up to $4,800 for veterans with service-connected disabilities. The new tax incentives continue an ongoing effort to ease unemployment among veterans. A White House statement released today notes that in August the president challenged the private sector to hire or train 100,000 veterans or military spouses by the

end of 2013. With the help of Joining Forces,, the statement says, more than 1,500 private-sector companies have stepped up so far to employ more than 18,000 veterans and spouses and have committed to hiring 135,000 veterans and spouses by the end of 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hire a veteran today,â&#x20AC;?

Ford returns from six-month deployment Ford returns to Everett in time for the holidays EVERETT, WASH. (NNS) – Guided-missile frigate USS Ford (FFG 54) returned to Everett Nov. 17, after a six-month deployment to the western Pacific. Ford departed Everett in May 2011. During deployment, the ship participated in the multinational Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training exercise. CARAT training scenarios include coastal patrol, mine countermeasures, amphibious assault, and maritime patrol and interdiction, and are primarily conducted to enhance regional cooperation and promote understanding between participating military forces. Ford sailors visited Guam, Malaysia, Japan,

Russia, South Korea, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, India, and Sri Lanka. “I was pleased that the crew had an opportunity to be hosted in India,” said Cmdr. Donald Foss, commanding officer of Ford. “The interaction with the Indian people, culture, and Indian Navy has been more than rewarding. I sincerely hope I and the crew of USS Ford are provided this opportunity again someday in the future.” Ford is assigned to Destroyer Squadron 9 and is equipped to provide defense in-depth against

air, surface and sub-surface threats for military and merchant shipping. Ford helps provide deterrence, promote peace and security, preserve freedom of the sea and humanitarian/disaster response within U.S. 3rd Fleet’s 50-million square mile area of responsibility in the eastern Pacific, as well as supporting the nation’s maritime strategy when forward deployed.

Transition pay for some separated sailors MILLINGTON, TENN. (NNS) -- Active-duty Sailors involuntarily separated from the Navy may be eligible for separation pay to help ease their re-entry to civilian life, officials said Nov. 17. “Separation pay is intended to assist members who are involuntarily separated in returning to civilian life,” said Cmdr. Jeffrey Krusling, head

of the Navy Pay and Compensation Policy branch. “Separation pay will be paid to members involuntarily separated from active service and to those not accepted for an additional tour of active duty for which they volunteered.” Sailors selected for separation by the enlisted retention board may be eligible for involuntary separation pay provided they meet the

requirements set forth in OPNAVINST 1900.4 and MILPERSMAN 1910050. “Regular enlisted members must have completed at least six years of active duty and be willing to affiliate with the Inactive Ready Reserve (IRR) for three years,” said Krusling. Involuntary Separation Pay (ISP) is offered and generally based on the following formula:

monthly base pay X 12 X years of service X 10 percent. It may also be paid at a reduced rate under circumstances outlined in the instruction. OPNAV Instruction 1900.4 applies to Sailors involuntarily separated from active duty on or after November 1990. Sailors who are separated from active duty at their own request, as part of a court-martial sentence or from mis-

conduct or unsatisfactory performance, are not eligible for separation pay. Members who receive separation pay and later qualify and collect military retirement pay are required to repay their separation pay. Repayment may be deducted from the members retirement pay.

Current served in South Pacific Salvage ship finished the war in Okinawa Kitsap Navy News

The salvage ship USS Current (ARS-22) was built by Basalt Rock Co. Inc. in Napa Calif., and commissioned June 14, 1944. The ship displaced a tidy 1,441 tons, was 213 feet long, and 39 feet wide. It had a draft of 14 feet, 8 inches with a speed of 15 knots. About 120 men crowded her above and below decks and she was equipped with a pair of 40 mm guns. After clearing San Francisco Bay on August 6, 1944, the ship sailed for Ulithi in the South Pacific for her first towing and salvage operations. Among her most important and immediate emergency salvage and repair tasks were salvage work on the cruisers USS Houston (CL-81) and USS Canberra (CA-70) from Oct. 19 to Dec. 14, 1944. The Current was also

involved in the valiant firefighting attempts to save the carrier USS Randolph on March 11, 1945. The Current arrived off Okinawa on June 2, 1945, to aid the many ships needing salvaging after being damaged by blistering Japanese surface and kamikaze attacks. Current would eventually serve ships of the occupation forces on Okinawa until Jan. 5, 1946. She was then dispatched to Sasebo, Japan, and then San Francisco, arriving in the Bay area on Feb. 27, 1946. Between Apri 1946 and July 1947, Current served with Joint Task Force-1 in Operation Crossroads, the atomic weapons tests that were ongoing in the Marshall Islands. She returned to San Diego and was placed out of commission in reserve on Feb. 9, 1948. Recommissioned on Oct. 10, 1951, USS Current was dispatched to the Korean conflict zone and the Far East. She carried out an extensive salvage operation on the merchant ship USS Quartette off Midway Island, saving approximately 2,000 tons of grain between December 1952 and March 1953. During another 1953 tour off Korea, USS Current crew members helped refloat the stranded LST578 at Cheju and in an even more difficult operation, saved the stern half of the SS Cornhusker Marine

which had run aground near Pusan, Korea. Her next Far Eastern tour in 1954/55, included duty patrolling near Taiwan, visits to ports in Japan, and participation in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Passage to Freedom,â&#x20AC;? the evacuation of refugee from troubled North Vietnam. Next, the boat was outfitted with changes to make her fit for duty in Arctic regions. She arrived in Seattle on June 25, 1955 and was tasked with ferrying construction equipment and materials into poorly charted waters along the northern coasts of Canada and Alaska until Sept. 1955. She then put in at Pearl Harbor for repairs and then voyaged to much warmer Kwajalein in the Pacific for mooring buoy patrol. By June 29, 1956, she was back in Seattle to become part of a convoy carrying supplies to the Distant Early Warning (DEW) line being constructed in northern tundra areas by Canada and the United States. During an interesting 1957 deployment to the Western Pacific, the ship did mine recovery training in the Marianas; surveyed and blasted a channel in the Scarborough Channel of the South China Sea; salvaged aircraft and vessels off Japan; and performed a mercy mission by treating Japanese divers stricken with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bendsâ&#x20AC;? off Honshu. She would operate throughout the Pacific on various salvage missions from 1957-59 off Japan, Taiwan, and Korea. In the early 1960s, the ship was again operating out of Pearl Harbor with a salvage group. The ship was eventually decommissioned for good in 1972 and stricken from the Navy List in 1973. Small and inelegant, the USS Current nonetheless

Review records online MILLINGTON, TENN. (NNS) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With the announcement of the Fiscal Year 2013 E-7 selection board cycle Nov. 17, leadership reminds Sailors it is their responsibility to ensure their Official Military Personal File is up to date. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the Sailor to make sure that their service records are correct and not missing anything,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Giger, head of Records Management Policy Branch , Navy Personnel Command. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a Sailor finds something is wrong, they should take steps to correct it as soon as possible.â&#x20AC;? Sailors should not confuse their OMPF with the Electronic Service Record. They are two separate records with differing functions. The ESR is an online version of the old field service record maintained at the command level. Information entered into the ESR is used to update corporate data, create documents for the OMPF, and provide up-to-date human

resource information to a Sailorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local command when the OMPF is not available. It is not a permanent record like the OMPF. Also, when a Sailor is transferred or separated, temporary information is purged from their ESR. Sailors can review and update their personal emergency contact information and other service record items in their ESR self-service account through the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System website athttps://nsips.nmci. navy.mil. Sailors afloat can access their ESR self-service account through the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NSIPS server. If information is considered permanent, the personnel office or personnel support detachment will verify, print, sign and send required documents to the OMPF to be retained permanently, said Giger The OMPF is the record reviewed by selection boards and is also used to manage a service memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assignments,

training, advancement and separation. Per NAVADMIN 349/11, the Fiscal Year 2013 E-7 selection board will review the OMPF of all candidates. If documents are missing from a candidateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OMPF, they must submit those documents, along with a cover letter to the selection board president, to be reviewed by the board. Letters sent to a selection board for consideration will not be added to a service memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OMPF permanently. BUPERSINST 1070.27 outlines all items that should or should not be submitted by officer and enlisted personnel and how to submit those documents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The longer a Sailor waits to correct something in their record or add something that is missing, the harder it is for NPC or the Sailor to validate there is an error,â&#x20AC;? said Giger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the error is not obvious, the Sailor has to show the personnel office the mistake and provide supporting documentation. If a Sailor waits too long, getting a copy of something like an old evaluation from a reporting senior could be very difficult.â&#x20AC;? To securely review and print OMPF documents, Sailors can use OMPF-My Record on BUPERS Online athttps://www.bol.navy.mil. The application allows them to view, download and print documents such as Page 13s, performance evaluations, award citations, orders and

requests for records that we get here are from the Department of Labor and the Department of Veterans Affairs looking to see if a prior service member is eligible for some kind of a benefit,â&#x20AC;? said Giger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have documents on file in a service memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide them the information theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sailors also need to keep a hard-copy of everything that affects their career while in the Navy so if they notice an error in their OMPF, they can go to the personnel office or PSD directly and get it fixed,â&#x20AC;? said Giger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No electronic system is fool-proof and even though we have the ability to recover most corrupt files or images, sometimes we cannot, and obtaining a copy from the Sailor is the only way we can retrieve a copy of a lost image.â&#x20AC;? If Sailors order a copy of their OMPF on a compact disc through BOL once new documents are added or their record is updated, the CD becomes outdated. Giger rec-

ALLIGATOR | FROM PAGE 10 es. Many of the ships participating in BA-12 are entering their pre-deployment cycles, so they were going to be at sea conducting training regardless,â&#x20AC;? said Owens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to mesh their required training into our planning for BA-12. In addition to 20,000 Sailors and Marines participating in the live exercise, we are incorporating a number of synthetic scenarios that will broaden the amount of participation and training opportunities to a much wider audience.

ommends Sailors access their records online via BOL for the most up-to-date service record information, said Giger. For a complete description of all Navy human resource records or detailed instructions on how to update records, visit the records management and policy Web Page on the NPC website atwww. npc.navy.mil/career/recordsmanagement/militarypersonnelrecords/Pages/default2. aspx . The OMPF on BOL reflects documents that have been received, reviewed, and accepted as official record documents. Recently submitted documents may not yet appear in the record. If a document was sent to NPC within the past 60-90 days, it may still be in processing, so do not resend. After 90 days, if the document still has not appeared in the OMPF, contact PERS-313 by e-mail: mill_ompf-chg@navy.mil before resubmitting. For additional assistance, contact the NPC Customer Service Center at 1-866-U-ASK-NPC.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to recognize that while our forces are fairly stressed after 10 years of continuous operations in the Middle East, we recognize that future operations are most likely to take place at sea. If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t maintain and improve our amphibious capability, we are severely limiting the operational options we can offer the country. This really is the culmination of planning that began in 2007. The commandant of the Marine Corps recognized the need to get Marines back to sea and rebuild our amphibious capability, so this has been a long time coming,â&#x20AC;? said Owens.

other service record items. Downloading or saving documents to shared workstations is not recommended though, because OMPF documents contain personally identifiable information that could be compromised in a shared environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talk to service members every day that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in their record,â&#x20AC;? said Giger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make it a routine to periodically review your record. Every six months, go online and look at your ESR and OMPF, make sure your evaluations are there and see if anything new has been added. When you look at your OMPF and see that a document was electronically submitted from PSD, go into the record to see if it was accepted, because sometimes documents get rejected and you need to make sure they are resubmitted.â&#x20AC;? After separation, OMPF documents are used primarily to protect the legal and financial rights of the government, veterans, their families and survivors, according to Giger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At least a quarter of the
