Honoring Local Marine with Building Dedication Page 6

By Andrew Revelos Staff Writer Steel from the Tower One of the World Trade Center was on display at Naval Support Facility Dahlgren’s Buildings 1200 and 1500 on Aug. 7-9 as part of an effort to remodel the homes of critically-wounded service members. Building for America’s Bravest, part of the Stephen Siller Tunnels to Towers Foundation and the Gary Sinise Foundation, customizes the homes of Wounded Warriors, helping them overcome obstacles caused by their injuries and giving them greater independence. The steel was transported to 22 firehouses around the country by Bikers for America’s Bravest, a collaboration of motorcycle clubs and riders, for their 2013 ride. Stephen Siller was a New York City firefighter killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks. Siller had finished his shift and was meeting his brothers for a golf outing when he learned that an airplane had struck the North Tower. Siller collected his sixty pounds of firefighting gear and drove to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, which was already closed. The husband and father-offive ran through the tunnel and met with his squad. He died alongside 342 other firefighters. The annual

Tunnels to Towers 5k run in New York honors his memory. The World Trade Center Steel was brought to Dahlgren by Dennis Markle and Jerry Pfenninger, CACI con-

tractors at Dahlgren and motorcycle enthusiasts. “Twelve years after 9-11 we’re still at war,” said Markle. “The foundation expanded its mission to include critically-wounded military

[service members]. They build these veterans smart houses.”

Air Force Space Command discontinues surveillance system

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. - Due to resource constraints caused by sequestration, Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) has directed the 21st Space Wing to prepare to discontinue operations at the Air Force Space Surveillance System (AFSSS) by Oct. 1. Final decisions on all Fiscal Year 2014 budget issues will be made over the next few weeks. By discontinuing operations, the AFSSS would not be maintained in operational status. However, equipment will not be removed until a final disposition determination is made. The AFSSS sites are operated under contract and the 21st SW has notified the vendor, Five Rivers Services in Colorado Springs, Colo., that it most likely will not exercise the next contract option beginning Oct. 1. By de-activating the AFSSS by Oct. 1, AFSPC would see a cost savings of approximately $14 million per year, beginning in Fiscal Year 2014. AFSPC has devised modified operating modes for the Perimeter Acquisition Radar Characterization System at

Cavalier AFS, N.D., and for the space surveillance Radar at Eglin AFB, Fla., which allows the discontinuation of AFSSS operations while still maintaining solid space situational awareness. The AFSSS is a series of three transmitters and six receivers along the 33rd parallel stretching across the southern United States. The three transmitter sites are located at Jordan Lake, Ala.; Lake Kickapoo, Texas; and Gila River, Ariz. The six receivers are located at Tattnall, Ga.; Hawkinsville, Ga.; Silver Lake, Miss.; Red River, Ark.; Elephant Butte, N.M.; and San Diego, Calif. The two receiver sites at Tattnall and Silver Lake were deactivated in April of this year. The AFSSS was designed, built and operated by the U.S. Navy, and known as the Naval Space Surveillance System. The concept of a space surveillance network was originally demonstrated by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). The construction of the Naval Space Surveillance System (NAVSPASUR) was begun in 1958 un-

der the management of the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) and the technical direction of the NRL. The headquarters and computational facility was located at the Naval Weapons Laboratory, currently known as Naval Support Facility Dahlgren, Va. Dahlgren was chosen for the headquarters because the Naval Ordnance Research Calculator, the only computer in the Navy at that time capable of handling the advanced calculations necessary, was located there. In June 1968 the Naval Space Surveillance Facility was established, and on Feb. 1, 1961, the Naval Space Surveillance System was commissioned as an operational Navy command in Dahlgren. The Air Force assumed funding and operational responsibility for the Naval Space Surveillance System, also known as “the Fence,” in 2003 at the direction of the Secretary of Defense. The Air Force established 20th Space Control Squadron, Detachment One, at NSF Dahlgren to take on that mission and renamed the Fence as the AFSSS.

The AFSSS is just one part of AFSPC’s global space surveillance network. The system is designed to transmit a “fence” of radar energy vertically into space to detect all objects intersecting that fence. The operational advantage of the AFSSS is its ability to detect objects in an un-cued fashion, rather than tracking objects based on previous information. The disadvantage is the inherent inaccuracy of the data, based on its dated design. The new operating modes at Cavalier and Eglin will provide more accuracy than the AFSSS and still collect un-cued observations. The Air Force is developing a new Space Fence will provide very precise positional data on orbiting objects and will be the most accurate radar in the space surveillance network. It will provide enhanced space surveillance capabilities to detect and track orbiting objects such as commercial and military satellites, depleted space

Steel: Using Smart House Technology to help wounded warriors Continued from page 1

Smart house technology helps wounded veterans accomplish house hold chores, such as turning appliances on and off, from a computer tablet. Other custom features, such as counters, can be raised or lowered, ensuring wounded vets can reach items comfortably. Markle and Phenninger served together on submarines in the Navy and are both proud supporters of veterans. “We delivered the 9-11 steel to the Falmouth Volunteer Fire House in Stafford and Dennis decided to bring it here, where it could be viewed by government employees, Sailors and contractors alike,” said Phenninger. “There are employees in these two buildings who have connections to the Pentagon [attack],” added Markle. “Even though this is a piece of the World Trade Center, the attacks in New York, Washington and Shanksville, Pennsylvania are all the same event as far as we’re concerned.” The response around base has been positive. “I had the opportunity to stop by Building 1200 and view this display,” wrote Karen Martin, mathematician for the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division, to Markle. “Thank you for sharing this with us. It is a beautiful display honoring those we lost that tragic day and those who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe.” Markle is a captain in the Patriot Guard Riders. He and Pfenninger both regularly participate in motorcycle events in support of veterans, including protecting the families of fallen service members from the Westboro Baptist Church at military funerals. Both men are in awe of the sacrifices made by Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in the wars in Iraq and Afghani-

Todd Love, a former Marine who lost his legs and one arm while serving in Afghanistan, passes through historical U.S. flags presented by the Honor America Corps at the Falmouth Volunteer Firehouse on Aug. 10. The organization was one of many that came out to support Love, Building for America’s Bravest and Bikers for America’s Bravest as they transported the World Trade Center steel to Arlington. stan. “It’s incredible to hear what these soldiers are going through,” said Markle. Todd Love, a former Marine who lost his legs and one arm in a 2010 IED attack in Afghanistan, is the director of the Bikers for America’s Bravest program. He also authored the poem etched onto a piece of aluminum fixed to the World Trade Center steel; he asked Markle to escort it while it was in the region. “The patriots who showed up, they just happened to ride motorcycles,” said Marlke, describing the motorcyclists and motorcycle clubs that have supported the event. “They were from all different clubs, all different organizations. I was in tears; there were so many bikes

there.” Each biker paid $25 to escort the steel, money that is put to good use to customize the homes of Wounded Warriors like Love. As Markle, Pfenninger and other motorcyclists prepared to move the steel from the Falmouth Volunteer Fire House to the Arlington Fire Station on Aug. 10, Love discussed the good work done by the Bikers for America’s Bravest and Builders for America’s Bravest programs. “All the homes are specially-adapted,” said Love. “I got hurt in 2010 and they invited me up to Staten Island and said ‘we want to build you a home’. I was really excited. They asked me where I wanted to live.”

Love found an Atlantaarea home he was interested in. “There were no questions asked. They said if this is what you want, this is what you get. That’s how they work. They put me into contact with a builder and I told him what I had in mind, a kind of U-shaped house. He gave me a floor plan and told me to tell him about anything I wanted to change.” After a few meetings, Love had a list of modifications. “Small stuff,” he said. “The laundry room was on the far side of the house. I said lets have the laundry room over here next to bedrooms. Instead of having this door open this way-so I have to come all the way in the room and shut the door

to get to the washer-have it open the other way.” An L-shaped bench added to the roll-in shower helps Love keep his wheel chair dry and get back into it once he finishes, without him having to get on the ground. “That’s some of the basic stuff,” said Love. “The more advanced stuff is the technology that goes into it. I can change the lighting, turn me TV on and close the curtains with a touch on my iPad.” The customization also included a security system with video cameras viewable on the iPad. Cabinets in the kitchen are controlled with a bottom that keeps Love from having to reach for items.

The home modifications and the support Love received from the motorcycling community during his recovery inspired him take a leadership role for Bikers for American’s Bravest. “About 500 motorcycles showed up to escort me home,” he said. “They were [American] Legion riders, Patriot Guard riders, Christian motorcycle associations. the list went on and on. All these people showed up.” Love’s injuries haven’t prevented him from becoming a motorcycle enthusiast himself. Jesse James Dupree, singer for Jackyl and co-producer of Full Throttle Saloon TV series, gave Love a motorcycle on the show. His wheelchair is modified to lock him onto the bike. “I’ve had such a huge support group with motorcycles. I know people that ride bikes are not necessarily the richest people, but they’ve been very generous.” When Love asked Bikers for America’s Bravest how he could help, they made him the program director. “I wanted to plan something big to help the foundation raise money,” he said. “What we came up with is this piece of World Trade Center. You can see that it’s the shape of a heart-the reason why it’s in that shape is that it’s heart of steel. I think that is fitting for our service members, firefighters, police officers and veterans. That’s the spirit of America. We have tough hearts and we move forward. For me, it was an honor to have the responsibility and privilege to do that.” The World Trade Center steel will return to New York on Sept. 29 for the Tunnels to Towers 5k.

Intern leaves NSA South Potomac inspired

By Andrew Revelos Staff Writer

Military life and culture can be a daunting adjustment for the uninitiated, but Joyce Smyre, intern at Naval Support Activity South Potomac’s (NSASP’s) Morale, Welfare and Recreation office, is finishing her three-months serving military children onboard Naval Support Facilities (NSFs) Indian Head and Dahlgren in stride. While neither Smyre nor members

of her close family served in the military, her time counseling military children has focused her determination to become a social worker. “I felt like I was entering into an entirely new world,” said the North Carolina A&T State University senior and Salisbury, N.C. native. “I didn’t know anything about military life.” Though the learning curve was steep, it didn’t take long for Smyre to affirm her professional calling. “I like the military lifestyle,” she said. “My main goal is

to become a social worker for the military. I wanted to learn how I could serve the people who protect our freedom.” The challenges faced by military children made an impression on Smyre. “Seeing those parents go on deployment, the children transitioning to new schools and making new friends-the military definitely does a good job helping children through those challenges with the resources they provide” Frequent moves, for ex-

ample, were not a part of Smyre’s own childhood but the internship gave her the opportunity to examine the challenges in-person. “I never had to experience it,” she said. “This internship has been a key to helping me branch out and explore the issues.” Smyre participated in many youth activities throughout the summer, but attending the Youth Activities Center’s Missoula

Authorities from the Maryland Department of Transportation announced the funding of the preliminary engineering phase of the Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge improvement project at the Naval Support Activity South Potomac Community Relations Council meeting Aug. 1. This phase of the project will commence in fiscal year 2014 and is funded with $6.1 million. The project’s final environmental document, mandated by the National Environmental Policy Act, found no significant impact. The document was approved by the Federal Highway Administration in November 2012. Glen Smith, planning manager for the Maryland Transportation Authority, discussed the need for the high-priority project. “The purpose of the project is. to eliminate the bottlenecks, support the anticipated growth and address all the safety concerns,” he said. The current, two-lane bridge is often closed to one lane during repairs and closed entirely for wide loads. Military considerations also factored into Maryland’s decision to improve the bridge. “It’s a major connection between

Indian Head and Dahlgren,” said Smith. The 1.7 mile long, two-lane Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge was opened in 1940. The narrow 11-foot lanes, steep grade and lack of median divider and shoulders are functionally obsolete. The new, four-lane bridge will span the river just north of the existing structure and feature shoulders, a median

divider and a two-way bike and pedestrian path. The cost range of the project is between $833 and $916 million, which includes removal of the existing bridge. Will Pines, bridge and tunnel manager for the Maryland Transportation Authority, described what the initial work will entail. “We’re excited to keep this project moving and get things going into the preliminary engineering phase,” he said. “We’re going to using that initial preliminary engineering phase money to start technical activities primarily related to ordnance detection.” In the meantime, the Maryland Transportation Authority expects to spend $13.2 million in the next two fiscal years to maintain the existing bridge, said Pines. That work will repair and seal concrete decks, as well as maintain the catwalk.

Intern: Military Extension Internship Program Continued from page 2

Theater production of the Frog Prince was an especially proud moment. “A couple of the children didn’t know I was going to be at the show,” she said. “They saw me in the crowd and literally stopped their role within the play, just to say hi. At that moment, I knew that I had made an impact somewhere.” Smrye spent part of her internship “job shadowing” Lolita Gunter, school liaison officer for NSASP. “Joyce enthusiastically shows interest in learning the skills needed to be an effective employee of the Child and Youth Programs,” said Gunter. “She has shared her knowledge of early childhood topics to attendees of parent training. She showed warmth and caring attitude as she interacted with parents and children during the Back to School events.”

Gunter hopes Smyre will consider applying for a job with the Navy’s Child and Youth Programs once she completes her education. “Joyce has potential to be a good Child and Youth program employee because of her positive attitude and the unique experiences she can bring to the early childhood field,” she said. Smyre’s future plans include enrolling in and graduating from a master’s level program for social work. She is also considering another internship with MWR, one that would focus on social work and children’s education, further broadening her professional horizon. Smyre found that she enjoys travel and hopes her work with the military will eventually take her across the globe. Of course, moving out of one’s comfort zone can be challenging, but Smyre found the rewards to be even greater. “My mom has always been one to in-

spire me to explore and try new things, and she would always say, never let life pass you by.” she said. When she wasn’t serving military children, Smyre enjoyed participating in recreational activities, shopping and hanging out in Washington, D.C. She also spent some of her free time researching the military and social work and hopes to try out kayaking before she returns home next week. Smyre recommends the Military Extension Internship Program for any student who wishes to gain professional experience while serving military families. “This confirmed for me that I want to be a social worker,” she said. “The internship gives you the opportunity to travel and learn about the military. I would encourage others to apply with the Military Extension Internship Program.”

Commissaries return to normal hours Aug. 18-24 By DeCA Public Affairs Division FORT LEE, Va. - Military commissaries worldwide will return to normal operating schedules the week of Aug. 1824, said the director and CEO of the Defense Commissary Agency. The DeCA announcement comes in the wake of the Department of Defense’s Aug. 6 decision to curtail furloughs of its civilian workforce from 11 to six days. “This is welcome news for us all,” said Joseph H. Jeu. “Our stores will return to their regular schedules after Aug. 17. I encourage our patrons to check the DeCA website for their commissary’s operating hours. “We recognize the disruption that furloughs presented to our patrons as far as access to their commissary benefit,” he added. “We also understand the economic hardships many

of our employees faced with the pay they lost during the furlough period.” Since July 8, the one-day-per-week furloughs impacted all of DeCA’s more than 14,000 U.S. civilian employees worldwide. With the end of furloughs, Jeu asked that patrons be patient as product delivery schedules return to normal. “We will do everything possible to ensure that our shelves are properly stocked with the products our customers want when they shop,” he said. “However, there will be a short adjustment period as our stores settle back into their prefurlough operating and delivery routines.” Commissary customers can quickly find out about any changes to their local store’s operating schedule by going to www.commissaries.com, clicking on the “Locations” tab, then “Alphabetical Listing” to locate their store, and clicking on “Local Store Information.”

Navy Gateway Inns & Suites Partners with Commercial Hotels to Save Travel Dollars The Navy’s primary lodging facilities for travelers on official orders (also available to Department of Defense (DoD) travelers), Navy Gateway Inns & Suites (NGIS), is expanding lodging opportunities. NGIS is partnering with commercial hotels in close proximity to Navy installations to accommodate guests when on base DoD government lodging is at full occupancy. This program is available at Naval Support Facility Dahlgren NGIS. Previously, DoD travelers on official orders to an installation may encounter an NGIS with no lodging availability. Travelers are then required to locate a local commercial hotel on their own after receiving a Certificate of Non-Availability (CNA). Starting Aug 1 ‘13, NGIS NSF Dahlgren is taking on that responsibility for the traveler. In certain markets; this can be quite a challenge. First, the traveler must find a commercial property within a short commute to the base at the per diem or lower, and most importantly safe to reside in

during their temporary duty. The Navy Lodging Program has seen the hurdles travelers face and has implemented a solution by partnering with commercial hotels as noted Tamara Davis, Navy Lodging program manager. “Our priority is to maximize on-base DoD government lodging and then also to provide safe, secure hotels that meet our DoD traveler requirements by establishing relationships with commercial hotel partners in close proximity of the Navy base,” said Davis. “Travelers do not have to worry about finding lodging on their own in an area they are unfamiliar with, or being placed in a hotel that is less than desirable. That’s what the Navy Lodging Program mission is - to take care of our travelers whether they’re staying on base or off base.” The Navy Commercial Lodging Program’s hotel partners must meet established criteria. This criterion involves passing an annual inspection to ensure the property meets DOD Lodging Standards and DoD

Fire, Safety and Health criteria with contracted room rates at per diem or lower, and be within a 30 minute commute for the traveler. Prior to a Temporary Duty traveler receiving a CNA for commercial lodging the following steps will be followed: (1)Check availability at NGIS (On base lodging); (2) if there is no availability at NGIS, the traveler will receive a CNA for a hotel located by NGIS at per diem rate. The Navy Commercial Lodging Program introduces multiple benefits for travelers: convenience, safety, travel savings and mission accomplishment. This program has proven very successful in markets such as Guam; Washington, D.C.; Bethesda, Md.; Fort Worth, Texas; Jacksonville and Mayport, Fla.; Seal Beach and San Diego, Calif.; As the Navy Commercial Lodging Program continues to expand to new markets/locations, travelers will be assured of lodging accommodations to meet their travel needs with one phone call to 1-877-NAVY-BED.

J.” Honeycutt, Jr., by dedicating the Explosives Development Facility Administration Building and Change House (Bldg. 3137) located on Naval Support Facility Indian Head, Md., Aug. 7. The building - constructed as a result of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission’s decision relocating functions from the command’s Yorktown, Va., detachment opened in April 2011. It serves as an administrative office for NSWC IHEODTD employees working on pressed explosives, and provides a change house area where employees can don flameretardant personnel protective gear required for use in labs and industrial environments. Family members, fellow Marines, NSWC IHEODTD employees, and Congressional representatives attended the event where a plaque noting Honeycutt’s service and sacrifice was unveiled. “A little more than two years ago, our command leadership and public affairs office started the process to name Building 3137,” said NSWC IHEODTD technical director Dennis McLaughlin. “NSWC Indian Head EOD Technology Division has a long, 123-year history in Charles County, and it was important to us that we name this building after a local hero. We formed a list of people who were more than worthy to have a facility named after them, and Lance Cpl. Honeycutt quickly rose to the top.” Honeycutt - a Charles County, Md., resident - was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, in Camp Lejeune, N.C.; and had served for less than one year when he died, Oct. 27, 2010, from wounds received in combat during operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Honeycutt’s former unit commander recalled the young Marine’s contributions. “When T.J. deployed to Afghanistan in June 2010, our battalion was sent to Northern Marja, which at the time was the most hostile area of Afghanistan,” said Lt. Col. Jim Fullwood. “It had been a base of operations for the Taliban for many years prior. T.J.’s company was placed in the roughest part. Until the day T.J. was killed in action, he carried out hundreds of patrols and fought daily battles. That’s what Marines do. “He also brought hope,” continued Fullwood. “He worked with the Afghan army to train their soldiers, and begin to establish security for the Afghan people so they could raise their children and live their lives without fear of the oppressive Taliban. T.J. helped

bring the first rays of light to a very dark part of the world. The difference he made to that troubled piece of Afghanistan was seen during our next deployment to Marja. Before, it had been the ulcer of Afghanistan. When we returned, it had become a model for the rest of the country. Where the government and Afghan forces could not travel before in the

areas T.J. patrolled, they now travel freely. Where children were unable to attend school, schools now flourish. Where the Afghan government could not reach, they now provide services. These were all changes brought on by the unselfish dedication of Lance Cpl. T.J. Honeycutt.” Honeycutt mother Christine shared her son’s love of the military, and her

manor. When people asked him why he wanted to be a Marine, he would always reply that he wanted to make a difference. That was his goal, and I think he accomplished it.” “When you lose a child, the first thing you want is your child back. The next thing you want is to have your child remembered - for them not to be forgotten. The whole world is moving on without your child, and you can’t move forward. You’re always looking back, screaming inside your head, ‘Please, don’t forget my child! Please, don’t forget he existed! He fought for me. He fought for you. He gave his life for all of us,” Honeycutt concluded. “To know this building is here, and to know that the people who come into it for decades to come will know his name, and see his face, is a joy and comfort that I can’t express with mere words.” NSWC IHEODTD commanding officer Capt. Thomas Smith noted the command’s efforts would be in support of the men and women on the front lines. “Most of the work done at our command is dedicated to helping our warfighters protect and defend this county,” said Smith. “This includes detecting and safely disposing of IED’s [improvised explosive devices] to prevent further loss of life. While we were not able to save T.J.’s life, we know that our work, conducted by people who will forevermore come to work in the ‘Lance Cpl. Honeycutt’ building will continue to save lives.”

Because it is also an un-cued tracking system, it will provide evidence of satellite break-ups, collisions, or unexpected maneuvers of satellites. “When combined with the new Joint Space Operations Center’s high performance computing environment, the new Fence will truly represent a quantum leap forward in space situational awareness for the Nation,” General Shelton said.
