BREMERTON (NNS) – Sailors from the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis, flag ship of the John

C. Stennis Strike Group, returned to Naval Base Kitsap in Bremerton, March 2 after a seven-month deployment to the U.S. 5th and 7th Fleet areas of operations. Thousands of friends and family members were waiting to be waiting on the pier as Stennis pulled into port. “I’m really excited to go home and finally see my newborn baby,”

said Enginemen 3rd Class Siarhei Kulinkovich, from Novopolotsk, Belarus. “I can’t wait to be with her all the time and hold her in my arms.” During its time in 5th Fleet, Stennis flew more than 1,000 sorties in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and its pilots led the final Navy aviation mission of Operation New Dawn (OND) in Iraq.

Nimitz surgeon works during carrier trials USS NIMITZ, At Sea (NNS) – USS Nimitz Health Services Department performed an emergency procedure at sea March 6, less than 24 hours after getting underway for the first time in more than a year. “The patient checked in at the front desk for sick call,” said Hospital Corpsman 1st Class James Ruane. “We were getting a lot of nausea and vomiting complaints because of the sea sickness, but he didn’t start getting sick until that morning and was having abdominal pain that started late the night before and progressively got worse.” The independent duty corpsman alerted the ship’s surgeon, Lt. Karen Woo, that the patient showed typical symptoms of appendicitis including nausea, abdominal pain, tenderness, and loss of appetite. After a thorough examination in which Ruane checked the abdominal muscles for muscle rebound pain and asked the patient to stand and jump in the air which he was unable to do, Ruane sent the patient to the laboratory for a blood test. After the results showed his white blood cell count was somewhat low Ruane notified Woo of the appendicitis. Woo checked the patient out and made the clinical decision of an immediate appendectomy. At that point, the only decision was whether to do the surgery on board or have the patient medically evacuated. “Lt. Woo talked to our senior medical officer and told him we were ready to do the job on the ship here and had all the proper equipment and manpower,” said Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class (SW/AW) Jason Ast. According to the corpsmen, performing the opera-

tion at sea is the best thing for everyone. “We’d rather have procedures like that done here on the ship when they can, instead of medevac when there’s no need for it,” said Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Marcos Guevara. One concern was the preparation of the department just coming out of the yards, and whether they would have all the appropriate equipment and training to complete the task. According to Woo, her team was perfectly ready to perform this type of procedure. “It’s always nerve-racking when you come out of the yards and then you find out you have all this stuff you need,” said Woo. “But with good supply and good team efforts we performed the surgery like you would at a hospital.” Medical personnel took time in the yards to train and prepare for these types of situations. “I think we did a very good job on preparing ourselves for a situation like this,” said Ast. “We went through a couple mock scenarios for situations like this.” Sailors were able to come together to make all the necessary preparations for the procedure. “We basically just sterilized all the instruments and set up the room to do the procedure,” said Guevara. “It was kind of incredible because it was the first time we’ve done this type of surgery in more than two years. Overall I feel the procedure went well.” The team and their success was led by Woo, who performed the surgery. “She was very calm and under control,” said Ast. “She was professional, like she’d done this a hundred times.”

Safe patient care highlight of Naval Hosptial Bremerton Safety Week SILVERDALE (NNS) – Naval Hospital Bremerton officially commenced National Patient Safety Week of Mar. 4-10 with a kickoff celebration on Mar. 5. The annual week-long event focuses on enhancing, improving and increasing awareness on a wide range of patientrelated safety topics for beneficiaries, staff and command visitors. “By engaging our staff and engaging our patients with such tools as these at work and at home, we’ll make where we work and live that much safer. The more we know about our health and safety, the better off we will be. “Be aware for safe care” is our theme this year. We want to

ensure that we have safe patient care every day,” said Cmdr. Sarah Butler, NHB Quality Management department head. Butler shared that some things patients can do to “Be aware for safe care” include; seeking information and questions; keeping track of their family history; knowing and writing down personal health care history; exploring healthcare options and selecting a hospital, doctor and pharmacy that fit their needs; choosing a family or friend as a health care advocate; following up on test results; and evaluating their environment to assess risk of falling. The kickoff ceremony

also included NHB’s Quality Management staff re-launching the Staff Safety Handbook campaign. “We’ve always meant to have this program in place and this kickoff gives us the perfect opportunity to pass on to everyone that this booklet is a great allaround training tool,” Butler said, noting that the basic safety tips in the pocket-sized books are also a convenient way to teach and share with others in the departments and clinics. “We’ll put these handbooks to good use in ICU to help increase our readiness in patient safety,” said Hospitalman Gregory Anderson, of NHB’s ICU/Critical

Dinner with the Smileys: February recap Navy Wise Sarah Smiley It was the month of love, and despite Dustin’s absence, the boys and I weren’t short of it. From dinner with a favorite teacher to a night out with close military friends, “Dinner with the Smileys” had us feeling loved indeed this February. Star Wars with the Mazzeis It often goes unrecognized (or, at least, under-recognized) that an important aspect of military support is getting military kids together with other military kids. I know this because I was a military brat from the day I was born until I married Dustin 22 years later. I remember many squadron and Navyrelated picnics, barbecues and Christmas parties, experiences that standout mostly because I was with other military dependents, and no one said things like, “So your dad is gone for, like, most of the year, or what?” That’s why our first February dinner was so special. Our guests: longtime military acquaintances (Dustin and Lincoln worked together in Pensacola, Fla.) and close family friends, Lincoln and Morgan Mazzei and their children. Our night started with the premiere of “Star Wars Episode I” in 3D because we haven’t watched Anakin whine enough in 2D at home. The kids were especially excited about Mrs.

Mazzei’s participation in the night because they know she is an actress and all “theatery” (their word). On our way into the movie theater, Owen said, “I cannot wait to see Mrs. Mazzei dressed up as Padme.” Morgan had actually gone the Princess Leia route, but she got bonus points for wearing a vest and Leia braids and telling the boys she had just come from Hoth. Back home, it was the easiest dinner of all—the kind where your guests know where to look for a drinking glass, and they help themselves to drinks in the fridge. Lincoln, who was deployed last year, was an important presence for the boys: Military dads go away, then they come back. Things become normal again. And it’s like it never even happened. Chief of Police Bangor’s Chief of Police was our eighth dinner guest. The gun in his holster proved to be an ever-present, if scary, fascination for the boys. Lindell, who guards his seat next to Dustin’s with everything from temper tantrums to flying juice boxes, for the first time in five years gave up his spot at the table... because it would have placed him “too close to the gun.” The boys had an endless supply of interesting questions for the chief (“When policemen are on patrol, do they follow a map?” “When will I learn all the laws so I don’t get arrested?”), which led to this dinner being the longest that all three boys stayed at the table engaged in conversation. The chief entertained the boys with stories of the city’s history, lessons about right and wrong, working with police dogs, and why our dog, who barked like crazy when the chief arrived, is the best kind of dog to have. After dinner, the chief took us for a ride in his police car. The boys’ eyes grew big when they heard the police scanner and saw the rifle in the trunk. Their eyes grew even wider when their mother, in the front seat, asked, “So what do criminals do when they are handcuffed and have to, um, er, use the bathroom?” Owen smiled with delight and said, “Mom totally just took this

down the path of inappropriate.” Ford’s Teacher, Joe Bennett He sang God Bless America at Fenway. He wears red shoes. He breaks out in song in the middle of class. He is the kind of mentor everyone wishes they had— the kind who comes to local basketball games (even on his vacation) and announces kids’ names as they go to bat at Little League. He is Ford’s fifth grade teacher, Joe Bennett. For me, the best part of the dinner was the way photographer Andrea Hand’s pictures revealed a genuinely happy Ford. Now entering the preteen years, Ford rarely gives me glimpses of that boyish grin, the one that echoes a toothless baby I once knew, the one with a halfmoon smile. After dinner, teacher and student played guitar together and sang silly songs in the living room. (Mr. Bennett always has a guitar, and he writes his own songs about science, dinosaurs, animals and friendship.) Lindell danced around the sofa, and Owen yelled out guesses to the riddles and rhymes in the songs. Ford made requests for songs he remembers singing in class, like the one about vertebras and the

one about Columbus discovering America. Teachers like Joe are true standouts, the ones students never forget. For a boy missing his dad, that is priceless. I’m glad Owen and Lindell got the chance to know Mr. Bennett, too. Having teachers participate in

Joint Chair calls for contractor costs to shrink into proper ratio WASHINGTON (AFPS) – Contracted operational support to the military -essentially, wartime contracting -- has expanded from a ratio of six troops per contractor during the Revolutionary War to fewer than one service member per contractor in Afghanistan, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Tuesday said. Speaking at the fifth annual Joint Operational Contract Support Leaders Conference held at the Women In Military Service for America memorial here, Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey said “it can’t keep going that way.” Dempsey said large defense budgets over recent years have contributed to the rise in contracted employee numbers, while the military services also rely on contract support for several logistics and life support functions service members used to perform. The Center for Strategic and International Studies’ Defense-Industrial

Initiatives Group analyzed what DOD spent on contracting from 1990 to 2010. In a report released last May, the group noted defense contract dollars more than doubled from 2001 to 2010. “Contract spending far outpaced growth in other DOD outlays,” the report noted. “This growth was concentrated in products and services, which experienced a compound annual growth rate of 8.4 percent and 9.4 percent,

respectively, compared to the [research and development] category’s 5.4 percent annual growth.” Now, as the services reshape for waning conflicts and shrinking budgets, there is an opportunity to determine what level of contract support the military needs, the chairman said. “You can see where the trend line is going,” he said, noting that the trend cannot keep moving in that direction. Contractors are part of the total military forces,

Dempsey said. As with active and reserve component service members, he noted, it’s important to identify both the right number of employees and the essential skills they must have. “We’re shrinking back to what we can afford” in the number of troops, Dempsey said. The 2013 budget request reduces overall troop numbers 5.5 percent over five years, mostly through cuts to the Army and Marine Corps. Defense contract spending dollars must shrink as well, the chairman said. He said such cuts must reflect the experience gained over the last decade’s conflicts, so “the body of knowledge we didn’t have [before Afghanistan and Iraq]” won’t be lost in future conflicts. Dempsey said the Defense Department’s

goal should be to use contracted support to provide key options, and to balance the uniformed services’ capabilities, while never forgetting to ask, “What can the nation afford?” The chairman acknowledged military members need to get better at contract oversight. There is a broad variety of kinds and costs of contracted support, and often similar tasks are priced far differently, he said. “There’s no doctrine I’m aware of that would help me make sense of [cost variance],” the general said.

The military must take responsibility for better oversight, and will need “input to close those gaps,” he said. Dempsey noted defense leaders now accept that even company commanders need the skills to supervise contract support, and the Army, for example, is teaching captains some of those lessons during their branch career courses. “When resources become scarce, we have to start thinking,” he said. “My message is -this is an opportunity.”

SAFETY | from PAGE 3 and increase their awareness. Our overall goal is for everyone to take a moment to try and see how many things they can find in the display that put the patient at risk,” said Mayda Schaefer, Patient Safety Analyst, adding that this is the eighth consecutive year NHB has highlighted National Patient Safety Week with a kickoff ceremony. Butler stressed that patients and family are a key part of the healthcare team. “We want them to realize there are good questions for their good health that they should address and discuss with their doctor, nurse and pharmacist every time we see them during a visit. “What is my main problem?” “What do I need to do?” “Why

Butler also shared NHB’S usage of the Department of Defense Patient Safety Program theme of TEAM UP to actively promote getting patients involved as partners with their healthcare team. “T is for ‘team together.’ E is for ‘educate yourself.’ A is for ‘ask questions.’ M is for ‘manage your medications.’ U is for understand changes in the game plan.’ P is for provide perspective,” Butler said. According to Butler, the 2012 National Patient Safety Goals for hospital staff and leaders will focus improving identifying patients correctly such as using at least 2-ways to identifying the patient; improving staff communications by getting

important test results to the right staff person on time; improving infection prevention with such measures as advocating hand-cleansing guidelines; using medication safely by labeling medicines and medication containers not already labeled; and identifying patient safety risks correctly by identifying any patient who may be at risk for committing suicide. There were also learning lads organized by NHB’s risk manager, patient safety expert and others. “We’re highlighting one week for something we do year-round, but we feel the added emphasis is important not only for our patients, but also for our staff,” said Butler.

simultaneously preventing a pirate attack then pursued and captured the culprits, freeing a crew of Iranian mariners they were holding captive,” said Rear Adm. Craig Faller, commander of the JCSSG. “This exemplifies precisely the multi-mission capability of the carrier strike group to operate forward, save lives and make a positive impact.” While in 7th Fleet, the JCSSG conducted combined operations with partner countries in the area and hosted both foreign and local dignitaries. During its return transit, the strike group made a stop in Hawaii before heading to San Diego to drop off personnel and equipment from embarked Carrier Air Wing 9, while the guided-missile cruiser USS Mobile Bay and ships from Destroyer Squadron 21 returned to their home port of Naval Base San Diego. “Our crew has served as

model ambassadors of our country while conducting both combat and strategic operations in a high-stress environment for seven months,” said Capt. Ronald Reis, Stennis’ commanding officer. “And they have exceeded expectations every step of the way.” The JCSSG consists of Stennis, Mobile Bay, aviation squadrons from CVW 9 including Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 14, VFA 41, VFA 97, VFA 192, Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 133, Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 112, Helicopter Sea Combat (HSC) 8, Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 71, and Fleet Logistics Support Squadron (VRC) 30, and ships from DESRON 21 including guidedmissile destroyers USS Pickney (DDG 91), USS Kidd (USS 100), USS Dewey (DDG 105) and USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG 108).

TRIBUTE | from PAGE 1 vocalist from Navy Band Northwest, kicked off the event singing the national anthem in the Senate Chamber. After opening remarks, Rear Adm. Douglass Biesel, commander, Navy Region Northwest, addressed the senate, praising Washington State’s support of the Navy. “Thank you Washington State for allowing us here today.” said Biesel. “We could not serve this great country without all of your support. We rely on our integration with Washington’s transportation systems, your school systems, and our partnership with the political leaders.” Biesel then thanked the Senate for supporting bills that benefit the military, specifically the Military Spouse Legislation and the Disposition of Remains Bill. “This is extremely important as we bring home our fallen heroes,” said Biesel. “We sincerely appreciate the support that you provide to all of us.” Former Washington Secretary of State Ralph Munro, coordinator of Navy Day, said that this annual event was started in 2003 to connect the state and federal officials with the military leaders. “We wanted to ensure the leaders know each other on a first name basis so that, as mutual needs arise, issues can be dealt with easily,” said Munro. Navy officials had an opportunity to tour the Legislative Building and visit the Senate Caucus and the House of Representatives Caucus. Navy Band Northwest performed a concert in the Capitol’s Rotunda room where spectators enjoyed live music. Lt. j.g. Robert Coats, director of Navy Band Northwest, said that performing at the state capitol was a privilege. “I’ve seen pictures of this event the last few years,” said Coats. “I have always hoped for the opportunity to perform at the state capitol.” The Navy’s presence in the Puget Sound area began over 150 years ago and is now home to the Navy’s third-largest fleet concentration area.

USS Howard D. Crow served three decades Coast Guard and navy crews kept rock steady destroyer escort busy on seven seas. The destroyer escort Howard D. Crow (DE252) was built by Brown Shipbuilding Company of Houston, Texas. It was commissioned Sept. 27, 1943. Manned by a Coast Guard crew of 186 men, the ship displaced 1,200 tons and was 306 feet long. Ship’s draft was a scant eight feet, even inches and top speed was 21 knots. Firepower consisted of three, 3-inch guns, and anti-aircraft needs were met by two, 40mm and eight 20mm guns. The Edsall-class ship was also equipped with two depth charge tubes, nine depth charge pods, and one Hedgehog variant, and three 21-inch torpedo tubes. After shakedown off Bermuda in October and November 1943, the ship reported to Norfolk, Va., for convoy duty Dec. 1, and sailed with its first convoy to Casablanca, Morocco, before returning to New York Jan. 24, 1944. This was followed by 10 arduous convoy trips to British ports throughout a nine-month period protecting supplies for the land offensive that would ultimately end the war with Germany. Crow was berthed at New York when Germany surrendered May 8, 1945. After refresher training near Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the ship sailed for the Pacific arriving at Pearl Harbor July 25. The ship was then ordered

tions and anti-submarine training in the Atlantic and Caribbean between periodic overhauls. In 1957, the ship took part in important NATO exercises with 50 ships from a dozen countries. This was followed in 1958 by the ship serving as a communications platform during a successful Jupiter missile nosecone recovery off Puerto Rico. In September 1958, Howard D. Crow was assigned as the Reserve Training ship in Galveston, Texas. In this capacity, the ship conducted periodic twoweek training cruises for reservists to Key West, Fla. and the Caribbean Ocean while maintaining a high level of readiness. During the tense Berlin situation in August 1961 which saw the Berlin Wall eventually erected, the Howard D. Crow returned to active duty status to bolster the Navy’s fleet. It steamed

Crow transited the Panama Canal and on to New York City arriving March 15, 1946. The escort was decommissioned may 22, 1946 and entered the Atlantic Reserve Fleet. With the Korean conflict underway, Howard D. Crow was recommissioned July 6, 1951 with a Navy crew. After shakedown, it sailed to Key West, Fla., reporting as the Navy’s Sonar School training ship where it was used to develop new equipment and tactics anti-submarine warfare. Moving north to Newport, R.I. in 1952, the ship took part in fleet anti-submarine training exercises off the coast. For the next six years, Howard D. Crow followed this pattern of opera-

Service members to benefit from housing settlement WASHINGTON (AFPS) Thousands of service members and veterans whose mortgages were wrongfully foreclosed on, or who were improperly denied lower mortgage interest rates in the national housing crisis, can receive “significant relief,” President Barack Obama announced Tuesday. “It is unconscionable that members of our armed forces and their families are among those who were most susceptible to losing their homes due to the unscrupulous acts of banks and mortgage lenders,” Obama said during a White House news briefing. Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta issued a statement, applauding the announcement. “These new steps are the result of an extensive interagency effort made by this administration to protect and support service members and veterans, and this initiative will help military families overcome obstacles to purchasing and maintaining a home,” Panetta said. Helping military families


achieve personal and financial security “is a vital part of maintaining a strong national defense, just as home ownership is a vital part of fulfilling the American dream,” Panetta said. “I thank the president for ensuring that our service members receive the support they need so they and their families can pursue their dreams while carrying out their vital missions around the world,” he said. Federal and state officials announced Feb. 9 that the nation’s five largest mortgage lenders – Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and Ally Financial [formerly GMAC] – agreed to pay $26 billion to settle a government lawsuit claiming mortgage loan and foreclosure abuses. At least $20 billion is to be returned to aggrieved homeowners, according to White House and Housing and Urban Development Department news releases. “If you are a member of the armed forces whose home was wrongfully foreclosed, you will be substan-

tially compensated,” the president said. The settlement also restores lower interest rates and reduces fees for Federal Housing Administration borrowers for those who were wrongly given higher rates and fees. Under the agreement, lenders will review the records of every service member whose home was foreclosed upon since 2006 and provide any who were wrongly foreclosed upon with compensation equal to a minimum of lost equity,

insured by the FHA. Later during a conference call with reporters, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said it was shameful of financial institutions to wrongfully foreclose on service members homes or not provide them the full financial protections that the law allows. In many cases, he said, lenders “did not review or even read the foreclosure documents they were processing.” “That’s not only wrong, it’s not who we are as Americans,” Donovan said.

The settlement, he added, “ensures that the men and women risking their lives for our country get treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.” Military families, Donovan said, explaining that they will be eligible for modifications to their mortgages even for homes in which they are not living. Service members and veterans who believe they can take part in the settlement are encouraged to call the Justice Department at 1-800896-7743.

DENTAL HEALTH TIPS! Regular dental exams are important because problems with existing fillings generally can be detected in the early stage. Decay that is undiagnosed and untreated can progress to infect the dental pulp, which often results in the need for root canal (endodontic) Dr. Dawn Divano treatment, or possible, loss of the tooth.
